Netflix Tanks 37% On Massive Subscriber Loss

"Netflix is now down by 30 7% their stock. Down 37% in trading. Now it came out yesterday that Netflix reported a loss of 200 thousand monthly paying subscribers during the first quarter of this year. Netflix has embraced the woke agenda completely and totally. Now there's still some good content on Netflix. I canceled my Netflix subscription. Because after they publish cuties, which I believe was very close to child pornography and other people agree, it's hard to not come to that conclusion. There are some fine content on Netflix, their show on Elon Musk is fine. Their World War II documentaries are okay. Sure. But Netflix has gone all in on the diversity equity, agenda. In fact, Netflix has become a mouthpiece for the political correct regime. They've entire categories dedicated to trans content. Entire categories dedicated to fighting racism. Netflix, of course, is now coming up against other competitors, a big push from Disney, the grooming network, big push, which is Hulu, of course. Hulu is owned by Disney, a big push by discovery plus HBO Max and Netflix is now up against the wall. Now you might say Charlie, what's the importance so what if Netflix is cratering? I don't think you quite understand the cultural impact that Netflix has. Over young people and how they view the world. If 200,000 people are divesting from Netflix, they are doing the exact same type of behavior that people do when they say, I'm a little bit overweight, get me some celery juice, get me a gym membership. I'm going to stop going out to the bar every evening and I got to get myself into shape. What you are seeing is an entire country or culture start to kind of sit up straight with their shoulders back and say, that's not making me a happier or better person.

Disney Is Making Some Major Changes Thanks to Gov. Ron DeSantis

"Disney is making some serious changes. And it's all because of Ron DeSantis in a good way, by the way, Ron DeSantis signed this bill, in Florida, which was a parental rights bill and anti grooming bill that many of the activist groups are super concerned about that 5 year olds won't be able to learn about this stuff and Disney is over the top compensating for this. I mean, it's so shockingly and stunningly, it should be a last and final warning for every family out there and every parent out there, you better stop your Disney+ subscription. You better stop your Hulu subscription. This is not okay. What Disney is doing. What exactly is Disney doing? You might ask? Let's go through some examples. And then I'm going to play some tape here that came out, which is just so extraordinary. So when you go to one of Disney's parks, Disneyland or Disney World, they will no longer use boys and girls. At any park greetings. To promote inclusivity because not everyone is a boy or girl, and they don't want to alienate, the trans people. Disney as a matter of policy will now say they will no longer use boys and girls. Disney parks are axing gendered language such as boys and girls, and ladies and gentlemen, in their park greetings to promote gender inclusivity. Disney's diversity and inclusion manager, Vivian ware, was heard speaking about the changes in a video conference call recorded by Christopher rufo will get to that in a second. We've provided training for all of our cast members in relation to that. So now they notice say hello everyone, our hello Friends. Instead of hello boys and girls. You see gender is tyrannical, according to Disney. Breaking today also Disney has made an announcement, and they said by the end of this year, half of all of the characters in Disney movies will be lesbian, gay, bisexual trans or queer.

Box Office and Streaming Picks for the Weekend

"Let's talk about what people actually might want to see, which is what's coming up at the box office. Either this weekend or coming up soon that you think people should keep an eye out for. Well, you know, it's a little bit of a quiet time in The Batman just came out. Right. So that's a problem because that's going to kind of flood the deck and everyone's going to go see that. So the box office release schedule has been lighter than usual of late, which is interesting. And I think a lot of content, especially fresh content is coming directly to streaming and they're too quick notes is death in the Nile, which I thought was rather enjoyable, came out a few weeks ago. It didn't make much noise at the theater. But yesterday it was just announced that it will be a viewing on both Hulu and HBO Max at the end of this month. So if you missed it, don't blink, it's coming directly home very soon. And I think that we've seen that a few times, even nightmare alley, which is up for best picture, made a quick jump to Hulu. And more and more times you're seeing these major releases just going straight to streaming. So I think it sends a message to potential theater goers that, hey, hold your hold your horses. It's coming soon. So I don't think that's going to have a great effect in the box

But now, probably a little bit more than what I used to, just because I think I've seen everything that's on cable television, at least once or twice, but what I found myself doing because I've been streaming for so long is starting something up, whether it's on Netflix or Hulu or whatever it is and that seems familiar. And by about the time I'm 20 minutes in and I go, oh, wait a minute, I must have seen this two or three years ago. While I love the concept and the idea of streaming, what I don't love is a way for them to let you know, hey, by the way, you've already watched this. Now they'll do that in the short time. They'll tell me what I've watched in the last 6 months or so. But I'm talking about things I saw two or three years ago that I may not want to watch again, but from the description, looked interesting. I know they think they're getting you to watch more and more, but they're not, because what's happening is, I watched for 20 minutes and then they go on to find something else. Now, sure, I may want to watch things again and I did go back to things time and time again. But I just want to know what's new, what's interesting?

Now it's true there are some shows I've got to watch and I will continue watching no matter how many episodes they put up. But they're only putting out 6 to ten a year or 6 to ten every couple of years. I'm fully invested in those shows. But with a lot of shows, the lava season one, you binge watch that and season two comes out 6 8 ten months later and you're like, well, I'm not sure maybe I will watch, maybe I won't and season three comes along and you're like, well, I have to go back and watch season two. That means I have to watch season three and now I'm 20 episodes down. It's just as easy to turn the TV on and find something to watch and watching it for however long you watch it.

"Recently. I was watching some hulu. And i keep seeing the same commercial coming up over and over and the star of the commercials. Somebody who's been around a long time. In fact i've grown up with this person and then i started thinking. Wow this person is in that commercial and that person launched like thirty years ago and they became so beloved by a certain portion of population that they were unable to entrench themselves in pop culture in really grow their fame over time despite not really growing their career. And this is the interesting thing about popularity once you gain it. It's hard to lose it. You have to do something usually really bad to lose it when you get a following. They tend to stick around. They tend to be loyal. So think about this little analogy in terms of your business when we talk about this person the commercial that i keep seeing is the corona commercial with snoop dogg in it heading out corona beverages on a beach so here you have snoop dogg mainstream something that would have seemed insane back in nineteen ninety two prior to him dropping.

This was the biggest hit of the year last year. For christmas people went people. Went crazy about it. And you've already talked about on multiple podcast. Did you save any new nuggets for us for this. I think i did watch it. A fourth time moping i'll be able to glean a little something but just to be clear this did premiere on hulu although was originally in three eight theatrical. Release from sony but you know twenty twenty twenty s when a. The budget is definitely era. They're lost our game because we get to call to made for you say they're they're lost. Their lives lost their shirts. They sure did guys bremerton. Plus though is still pretty cool. I've heard that's real cool. Yeah because moving forwards. You know you're going to be able to. If you're part of the facebook group you get to watch this you get to interact with. It's right and real time. It's amazing it's unbeliev- last week. I did a full monologue that no one asked for about time. And i'm gonna throw this out there for you guys quick on your monday mornings. If time wasn't time as we know it what if we all agreed it is what it is. You know what i mean. It's like it's it's one o'clock here. It's one o'clock everywhere. It's one o'clock somewhere china. Get out right. I love the idea that we're just one one metronome clock high around the world but it just gets too complicated anderson. The decades were mad at me because they're like well. Why don't we just more awards that the double double deckers were mad at me. Because they're like let's just commit to the metric system or let's just take care of daylight savings time and yes sure all of that's well and good you know. Let's solve world hunger. Yes of course do that but can we all just commit to a time alone. Clearly doesn't think we can i. You d the assumption being that. Nobody tried that. I probably somebody did. It was like this is terrible. Living their best life look like just spain apparently daniel shit this is a history Franko put spain on time show. What a good friend of you still on germany. Time which is why the sun sets at like eight o'clock at night and everybody's dinner at midnight. It's bananas over there so You just you can't mess with the natural globe lines or you getting in trouble and we did a spy episode with. I believe thomas riddle. I talked about the spanish german alliance. We could do more than that if you want a brain or or no history here story. Also that's right that's right. Yeah we're talking about the heavy season guys. I got to be frank with you. My notes on this for a typical not synopsis. it's it's not Where normally as i was so invested And i'm showing my cards a little bit. I was very emotional. My stomach hurt While watching this film And so that affected the way that i wrote. But i'm going to do my best. I'm going to get through it and then we can all say. Hey you missed this. You missed this. we'll we'll have chuckles for later The hobbies originally aired on hulu on november twenty fifth twenty twenty. But is that a little something like this The movie starts off with pictures of the past year of harper and abbey's relationship starting and blossoming throughout the year. Abby is not a big fan of christmas because her parents passed away. They were big christmas fans in this kind of stung a little bit but when harper says you should come and visit my family for the holidays she suddenly swept up in the christmas joy and spirits and so she says you know what i'm in abbey then goes to pick up an engagement ring. She is going to drop the question on christmas day and her friend john is like that is a bad idea. So they're on their way to harper's family's house and harper stops and says abby. I needed to tell you something. You know how. I said that when i came home during the summer i came out and i told them about you. I did not do those things. And so what we're going to need to do here is pretend as if we are not together it is a Reverse relationship is the mistletoe. Secrets on its head in. So the they're doing this because her dad is running for mayor and can't mess that up So.

"If you have the Ireland the prize what you personally want to do and you. You're doing for a bigger reason. You're not doing it for like the fame and the money and all that stuff comes with it. I think that that's the key of how we stay grounded. Also like to be honest cocoa Ni- like again. We can live this life with with the two of us. You know what I mean like. We don't need to be in someone else's circle so that's another thing of how we stay grounded because we'll we'll easily check ourselves and we have friends around us that were easily check is if we're not grounded. They haven't had to check US yet. Because I don't see myself being the person but I think that since we do have each other isn't advantage and I think also like every day no matter what I go through. I feel that what we're doing is for a bigger 'cause you know what I mean like. I know that I'm I got into this world to be. I know that I can go through a huge talent. I can go through the biggest problems of life and I know I can handle it with grace and not everyone can do that. I think that I got put on this road to show people how to do it and I was telling Kogler asset cocoa. People don't understand this is because we're creating a new path. People only understand things that they're used to so if we can be the women that have the courage have the identity we have the power and we also have the confidence and we also have the you know the emotional intelligence to go through huge problems and to get through it and can show people the way in create a path. Like I'm game for that. You both have talked a little bit about the difference and between your to kind of styles. Where breezy as more risk. Taking and Coco is kind of more strategic. Maybe and motherly. And I wonder if you could talk about Some other times that those roles have or like those characteristics have appeared and that can be on work. But I wonder if you can give us some examples of times where you're kind of like differing personality. Types have have really liked shown themselves you know. I think it's funny. Because one thing about breezy NI- again with different personalities. We of balanced each other out so even when it just in general when it comes as negotiating contracts. There's Times where my head? I'm like breezy. Don't say that because I don't want to lose this and cocos like no breeze. He's like I said Kogo. I've had because we do this. But now and then breezy breeze like no cocoa. I know are worth. I'm GONNA say X Y and Z with a straight face and I'm like breathing. Do not say that you know and just in general. This happens all the time where we'll go to a meeting or will be on email like pinscher underneath the table and I do not say that but then later on the deal gets done because breezy is so confident with our worth you know and for me I. I'm more of a person that was sugar coat. But what I've learned from Breezy. Is that if you don't ask you never know and if if people the people can do is just say no you know and so. Generally whenever we breezy says I am not allowed to be the first person to negotiate. Because she gets it done and I think when it comes to To that situation. That's where my risk taking. I'm known out of our team that I say things and I make my team very uncomfortable sometimes in the conference room but they later on appreciate it because I in a great way no in a amazing I say everything that you everybody wants to say but like it's creeping up but they'll never say it. I just kind of say it and Which I think is a great balance with Coco Cocos. The type of person. Where she's a get is done type type of girl. She makes sure that everyone's on top of their emails. No misses a deadline. She will let you know when it comes in even though you're already looking in front of your computer and you see by yourself and I think it's a it's a good balance we both can't be re. I mean we're both risk takers. There can't be to a me and there can't be to a heard and I think that's why another reason why we make such a great business partners in disgrace in general because even it bounces off even in our personal life like just got like one of our dream cars recently and I know breezy. We shouldn't do it. She's we shouldn't do. I'm like girl yes we should. We deserve this. We've been working so hard and miss motherly over here now. She doesn't even let me drive it like she wants to do it all the time or even with like like she mentioned earlier like when we got our first office in Manhattan and she was nervous about paying that Manhattan rent but me. Being a risk taker I was like cocoa. And my mom always told me this. If something comes your way you'll figure it out and sometimes you need that extra challenge to push. Push yourself to work harder and so I think again. It's just a really really good balance because I I would make crazy decisions. If I didn't have cocoa pull me back. Sometimes and I think Coco would necessarily step over the that little. Hump shouldn't have me. I think we've been able to really talk a lot about style. Fashion and self determination and a lot of the ways in which we've talked about style is from the Lens of style as armor or style as something that helps you to navigate through difficult situations and I wonder if we could talk also about the other side of fashion the space for joy space for humor. The moments of that may not be as expected in terms of the ways in which your style has evolved or the ways in which even as as designers the ways in which you've put forth designs and fashion I wonder if you could just talk about joy. Humor shows up in your work. Yeah I think for US I wear. Is You know we always think about it? Where when you were either sunglasses or glasses. We always feel like one of the biggest statements and quotes that we use that your. I wears the Alpha and your clothing accessory so we always say that you can just run you know wrangler jeans and a white t shirt but you put coco breezy glasses on you. Have your statement piece so when we were designing eyeglasses we always think about. How can someone walk into a room and have a conversation piece? And that's something about our brand that we love is conversation so it's important for us. If people are going to protect their eyes from the sign they're going to have I- correction or protect their eyes from the blue light and everything else we want people to do it in style and I think that in also go ahead. Brie and I think that Where like the joy like the fun comes in? Is like the names of our product. We name everything. Everything is named either from something from my heart or his name. That represents something that happened in my life like the people that we love so that puts a smile on people's faces like we've appear glasses call gratitude and you can't help but smile if you tell somebody like someone acts as you. What style of one breezy frames are those? And they're like. I'm wearing their gratitude frames. But you can't help but like Murray because you're saying a self affirmation wow also naming a pair of glasses or even if like hey you have this rita glasses on. And they're like oh I remember going said that was like their best friend in middle school. Who like protected them when they were getting bullied? And so I think that the joy of that or even the joy of our transparency of cocoa and I being you know twin sisters and how he started and we get a kick out of like even keeping one hundred about how we started in in this little tiny kitchen like. That's funny you know. It's funny because I think that it gives it makes people smile. And that's the goal is to be very transparent about the process so people can feel like they can do it as well and again with social media people only want to show the glitz glamour and the Glassy sowed of it. But no one really knows the process and it's important for us to be Transparent about how we're doing things. Sometimes some people say we give too much information but I think there are go is that Coco Ni-. We didn't have those resources or the people around us that to teach us how to do things and since we are strong enough to make mistakes and to pick ourselves back up and try it again without quitting. We don't have Any fear that our competitors are going to take our ideas and run with it or we're GONNA create competitors because I think that it's important for us a bill bill community especially for people of Color if we can be those voices to teach people how we did it. I think that that's more important than sitting here trying to worry about. Oh my gosh am I giving away the best ideas and we also know how to like you know step back and not give the best best ideas but we also know how to at least share the surface even like deeper than like surface ideas and knowledge that we didn't get when we had that idea like how do we start in Iowa company. Or how do we get an idea off the ground in something that I don't want I don't want to be proud of this? But we're the only black women founded I wear all the optical shops ever in real in almost five hundred stories and we don't want to be the only ones you know. We're the only ones that are vertically integrated and so for. Us RE WANNA share our knowledge so that there can be more of us and give out the resources that we didn't have when we had to learn how to design and produce manufacturer eyewear and so coconut are pretty like you know. We're we're I think so. Many people get so caught up in wanting to be the only one of things. Like if you're confident in your work like share the knowledge because especially being women and being women of color we all know the type of lack resources. We can share some knowledge with somebody else. I think the only way we're.

"I Love I love this but if all goes away tomorrow like it's still not the core of my identity. It's my job and I've read. I mean I spent what I spent almost twenty years writing without anyone reading. You know so. It's a goes back to that. I think it's just. I think people get in trouble when they kind of tie this metaphorical noose around their neck. And it's either the attention or it's the money or it's the acclaim like and like if you need those things than you're always holding yourself hostage. There's no room for joy sneer. There's no room for joy. There's no room for joy. I guess I try and be as much of a self contained unit as possible and so which is a gift and our full place to be in. I think we all have to do it in some way shape or form. But that's been I found. That's when I've felt happiest That's when I felt more saying most in control when I'm like. Oh this is my job the same way I used to go into this office. And Upload adds to twitter like that was my job and so being making it my job and my profession but not my life I think has helped balance out a lot of those other pressures because I also put a lot of pressure on myself to free amazing things like I'm never satisfied with anything. I'm still mad satisfied with the first two books so I don't need the per like I put enough pressure on myself to make it as good as possible so I know I don't need to outsource that love wall. We have two questions from some folks who have watched your segment on your attention please. Okay so our first question is from Pierre in Ohio. Pierre says or Pierre Asks I should say Told me do you pull any inspiration from your personal experiences when writing l. Yeah they're all everything I've ever written is just memoir fantasy fan fiction and so it's it's a lot of the questions. I was getting when book to I. Came out is like Oh. It's so dark and I was like yes I was in a very dark place and so It's I use. I mine as much from myself and from the people in my life as possible and mostly. I really mind my emotional truths because I think that's what makes our resonate when it's like whether it's a fantasy or whether it's real it's like when there's there are universal emotional truths that every human being unless you have like an intense psychological disorder. That's my grave McGuire thing. I was like well do sociopaths. Feel that so I don't know but the average human we all experienced these same emotional truths whether they're positive emotion old truce or negative emotional truth so I really focus on that. And it helps make the writing I think I think than the readers feel it but then also personally it does help me to. It's just it's weird to see your own life as a story because lives aren't actually stories but they are stories and so for me. I see different parts of my life like books and so two right things for Zali and then be like oh my gosh. This is me living out this thing. This has me living out. This liked I. It's in way writing. It allows me to see my own character arc because whatever they lease dealing with is usually what I need to deal with and overcome And then it's the same with the other characters that everyone just represents a different side of me and I always say they have the best parts of me in the worst parts of me. So so yeah. It's I think that's part of the time I don't know if this is creative. Just took the information the data. I have from my own personal experiences so yeah I think it's good to make stories personal. Our next question comes from an anonymous. Hulu Subscriber. I want to know what is the key to being a bestselling author? And how does it feel I think the key to being a bestselling author is to be relentless fighting for yourself And for your book and Yeah because I've seen especially having being in a place now where I've seen and met a lot of like bestselling authors commercially successful authors. That is the one common thread. It's not about like I mean one. They care they care about their stories. They don't write things that they don't care about And they try and do their best. I think that's a big part of it but I also think there's that relentlessness. Um Not settling knowing you're going to have to do even as someone who's had a book on the Best Sellers List for two years You know it's like I basically did my cover. I had to do a lot of my. I'm very very intense about my marketing. I'm intense about my. You know like it's not you can't hand over the reins and expect a lot of success because no one is going to care or fight for your story or yourself. The way you will so I think the earlier you can realize that in the earlier you can say okay. I want you know I had a friend literally say I WANNA be a New York Times bestselling author and then she busted her but you know when no one else believed in her she busted her but for years and she got there and you know so it's like you again. It's not that it's impossible. It is difficult but it has to be your like okay. I'm the protagonists. This is my goal now here all obstacles in my way let me fight them and and how does it feel it still surreal? It's still very surreal. There's this incredible high like the first time you see your name on this list in which you when you didn't even think you would ever really have a book out one day So there is that high in that disbelief and then it's mostly cereal it. All of this stuff still feels very surreal. So for this next segment. This is your opportunity to just sound off about anything. That's on your mind. It can be anything that has been like weighing on your mind heavily or as exciting to you. Something in the news. Something that you recently fell in love with But just two minutes. All you go okay. What is been consistently on my mind? And what has been that just keeps coming up either through the things. I'm reading or the things I'm hearing is just the importance of having the right people in your car. I'm going all the way back to our driving metaphor. It's like you have one car and there's a difference between having that car full of people who love and support you that you also love and support and having that car full of people who are draining literally the life from you who are really dumping all the gas out or playing lake. I don't WanNa say country music because some people love country music but like if I was driving across my life and someone was like we can only listen to like Blake Sheldon situation for me so I think it's just it's makes a world of difference. We don't think we have that much power over the people that we allow into our car And the people that we say you know you can't be in this car anymore. But you do you have full control over that and a lot of the of the bad things. I went through was because I had people in my car that I shouldn't have had and so when I finally said not even not even a bigger explosive way just when I find Melissa. You like you know what I don't have a mini van anymore. I have a jeep. It has four seats. These are the people filling them like. I wish you the best. On this journey. My life changed in a guy was so much better. And it's weird to say you don't have to talk or interact with people who cause you pain Or who like make you cry. But you don't you actually don't. It was a funny realization. So that's been I guess the thing I'm most passionate about is I think we as humans we tend to be really complacent not just with like our lives but also with the people in our lives and I say people can be anchor. People are usually inkers or balloons. So it's like an anchor pulls you down the drain you they drain your time your energy your resources your money And balloons lift you up. They make they give they they make you feel so euphoric you know they make you cry. Because you're laughing so hard or because you're so proud of that you know and I will just say I think that can be our lives work to fill our lives with anchors and and that no sorry to fill our lives with balloons. I think most of the time we kind of complacently Miller lives with anchors without realizing it well. Yeah don't feel weird about wanting to spend the time that you exist on this planet with people who lift you. I was really surprised to hear about Tommy's career before she veered off that highway and towards being a fulltime writer. I think a lot of times. It's always helpful to learn about the work that our heroes were doing while they were making some of our favorite books at the end of the day. Writers are human at the end of the day. Every story starts with a single word with a single letter. It's not all about pure magic you look at especially like Tony's books are very long and it can be sort of intimidating to think about how to get through that story and how to Be Able to articulate an idea as fully as some authors are capable of doing and so it's really always such a gift to hear. Any writer articulate. The journey of their lives did really love to find another partner and thinking morbidly very casually deal and I think oftentimes we just be shy away from his conversations and It was just really nice to talk to another person who sees world sees and makes and understands worlds in ways that don't shy away from difficult conversation. I hope that anyone who's out there and listens to today's episode understands that there is always an opportunity to take a turn at that exit towards the thing that you want to accomplish. Those things can be large or small but they are always on offer and available to you and as Tommy mention. It's so incredibly important for us to think about who is in the car with us. Who is riding shotgun? Okay think about it. Make sure that your whip is fit with the team.

"So this is the part of the episode where we have a few questions from our Hulu subscribers who have watched your segment on your attention please now streaming on. Hulu and come up with their own questions. Our first question is from Ayla and North Carolina. Ayla how do you balance your passion with self care and or spending time with those? You love a great question. It was definitely something where I kinda locked out so when it comes to caring for my plants but also putting the time in with my wife My plants take about four to five hours a week to care for and in that week a lot of that in a lot of the time on particular weekend day and I am blessed with the fact that I have always slept for about four to five hours and have been good with it so I wake up really early and I do all of the plant stuff early in the morning and my wife just happens to love sleeping so she doesn't get out of bed and I feel like for me. It's making sure that you set that schedule like it is. It is time for me to tend to plants here. Your doesn't schedule and then for the rest of that day. That's for whomever our next question is from Greek in Georgia who has inspired you Derique three three. I would say I've been inspired by so many people. I mean as an artist I went college. Grad school I feel like for me across the board is been artisan general now when I talk about artists. It's like in filmmaking A lot of us talk about how We we I were. I guess. We I found filmmaking And I would say in my in my household like Spike Lee was like one of the rectors. Where my mom made it known to me? This guy's a black guy making this film and I remember hearing that. I was excited about that so when I first saw school days I was like wow like. I don't know what it's like to being college but this feels while this feels like a lot like crazier than I thought college would be but during that time as well never really thought about college like Gucci. Yourself going to jail before you start yourself going to college so for me. That extra escape was knowing that someone like spike could do this thing in my make something and be like in the world creating this art. That's different than what I wanted to be at that time. Like as a Kid. I wanted to be a cartoonist. I wanted to be the next Walt Disney saw thought about was like I want to make cartoons. Um so when it comes to filmmaking. I feel like that was my first initial like inspiration when it comes to film but as I got older like it changed until like French new wave and all the directors there and then like Bergman was someone who I thought Had A really great way of Creating compositions that told a lot just by the framing itself and I was super excited about that when it comes to bringing plants into a space. I'm inspired by what I see in a lot of the buildings in Construction that's happening in Singapore and our last question is from a Lia in New York. Who are your mentors and have those relationships influence? Your trajectory mentors I will say you know what I'm GonNa say this Justyna from the jungle She has been one of my biggest Mentors in this space because in a space where I'm dealing with learning new things how to how to Take a partnership with a brand Who wants to put out a planter with you? How do you have those conversations where you go about Making a deal work. What does it mean to take something that you are super passionate about in create a business behind that? She's always been super influential in that element but and in that respect but she always makes time for me someone that she just knows via like the phone. I guess in social media but she'll make that time to talk me through whatever I'm thinking and whatever issues that I might be having with a particular project in an let me vent and she'll give me like super I would say detailed Information that won't allow me to take that next step in to not be afraid to do so so she's been great shot mentors that take phone calls for sure and now we're at the part of the show where there are no more questions skit to sound off on something. That's on your mind something that's kept you up at night or wakes up in the morning or something that you'd like to put to bed but two minutes two minutes all me. I mean I think spoke a lot of the things. They're nothing the one. When it comes to plants in bringing in greenery and people going out and buying plans is to know when it comes to social media that a lot of it is everything isn't exactly what it is made to be there my house the images that I- I post and the things that I do aren't just based on a particular plant amount of plant. Some of it. A lot of it is based on the bone structure of my apartment. See what I'm saying like there have really large windows which can push a lot of light. The space was a me to have more plants There are there have really nice hardwood floors which allow me to take great photos of these force because they reflect really nice and light and I have really high ceilings. Everyone doesn't have that so it isn't always just going to be Abundance of green. That's going to make you feel better about yourself or that. You're a part of the community of plant lovers. It's just gotTa be about what works for you. And what makes you feel good? If that number's four plants cool so being the numbers of thousand plants. I hope you have no other job but to care for those plants but just I duNno. Just just be mindful that you're talking about life over the course of my conversation with him. I felt many many things I think. Poulton story is an incredible one because it has so many twists and turns so many moments of discovery So many moments of him coming into his adulthood and learning that plants were such an important path towards that towards self respect towards being more caring. And so I think for me. It was an incredible roller coaster learning more and more about plan care plant investment. And what it means to say goodbye to plants because you spend so much time with them. After today's conversation I one feel guilty which I always maybe not. What Hilton intended But it made me think about all of my plan babies at home that I miss It made me think about how I went astray from talking to them. I used to talk to my plans. All the time and life has gotten so busy that I've forgotten to take time to do it And so I think that today it reminded me that maybe I need to spend more time with Dolores and Layla and Cleo fees and all the ones that I haven't quite named yet maybe I will go home and I will name some more of them. I hope that anyone who is out there and living a savage lifelike me or like I was I should say and maybe taking care of their plans but maybe not taking care of them as well as we can I hope that this conversation inspires you to take a beat to take a moment to check in with your plans to check in with yourself to water both your plans and your own soul which sounds so cheesy but it's so true so that's all for today but we'll be back next week with another episode until then don't be afraid to find what you love share with the world. It's free from the mountaintop your attention..

"So this is the part of the episode where we have a few questions from our Hulu subscribers who have watched your segment on your attention please now streaming on Hulu and come up with their own questions. I'm really nervous. Should I be this? Do not be nervous at all? It's just questions from people who are like we like you. WanNa know what you think's solid so our first question is from Tony from Toronto. I Tony How do you use or plan on using your differences to make an impact on E. Sports and East sports leadership love it? Thanks Tony I think there's it by fold answer here. I is very functional into my organization when I walked into. Eg It was twelve men working with a bunch of players under them in a tiny little room and a suburban industrial facility in Washington. And now we are seventy strong men women. Lgbtq plus family people who have kids like. We've just a big diverse group of really strong high performers across two facilities and Seattle and La with even more players beneath us in more titles. And that isn't done just by throwing money at something that is done by setting a vision that people can align and feel comfortable with to not just work for but also perpetuate in that vision is really what. I what I tell my staff. The goal for me is to hear people say I want to work or compete at evil geniuses and the nuance there is. It's not sports. It's not gaming. It's they want to work at this organization because it has the reputation the prestige and the infrastructure to support all different types of people and to be excellent and so then functionally that it's tied into me rolling out. I know I talked earlier about like. Hr Department a Finance Department. Learning in an organizational development initiatives. These are things that maybe sound commonplace in some industries but are very nudity sports a little bit of tying back into our brand identity you know living evil as we say is being comfortable being questioned for what we do and why we do it but we show through results and this is really showing that bringing select parts of what a Lotta gamers will corporate culture or best practices to make a space in workplace environment successful. Bring that in house doing things. Ethically doing things Well documented and scalable. That's what's going to help. Bg Be another top Tier Team for another twenty years. And hopefully we'll set the stage for the rest of the space where. Oh E. G. OFFERS ME XYZ EERIE G supports XYZ. That's where people are gonNA WANNA flock to not just as employees or players but his fans our next question from Dylan from California. Which sport is your favorite one So Love Rocket League title for as a player If I'm to pick amongst all of my my children as I guess I should say Counterstrike is pretty cool. Only because it's completely boggles my mind. It's very difficult first person shooter. Things are very fast paced. And what's interesting about? Counterstrike is survived many many years and what was exciting for me. We re entered counterstrike not too long ago as a title which was one of Evil Genius. I ever games. They played over twelve years ago so to bring that back and bring back such a strong team of really goofy guy is the counterstrike culture's pretty cool. It's bit more street. It's more fun Has Been It's been a cool Group to be with and our last question will be from Linda in Texas. How do you deal with stress? Call it the Iron Church and that is the gym. I think it's it's a hard trap for like professionals in any work environment. You know okay stressful. It's grab drinks. Let's go to happy hour was go. Grab dinner That's fun I found. That's not conducive to my best mental health state my physical health state so I have carved out physical activity as well as social time to really make sure. I'm always breaking my game to the table because stress is hard one issue. I as a new sports team owner One thing I I. Struggle with still is when the team loses I internalize all of those losses which is bad because a a lot of teams that do great and don't agree that I'm send Making sure you know I carve out time to to separate from the work. Identity is work as me in. I am work to our small successes and failures just tried to buffer those a bit more emotionally of been difficult so meant so much feeling so bad and it's terrible one of our titles we compete in. It's it's live and I'll go to the matches and I'm in the front and I know I'm on broadcast live the cameras and I have no fo- poker face whatsoever like I. Our players will make a mistake. I know they made a mistake. My face this showing the made a mistake in the night no one broadcast. Kohl's pistole shit her team doing so I e to counterbalance out of it better. What is it like seeing yourself on those broadcasts? It's it's funny because people will say. Oh you you're so good you must love it. It's not my Intrinsic Comfort Zone Base. Because he had no poker like. I'm over here like dropping F bombs and like getting mad at my poor GM who sits next. Why are they doing this? So it's been a learning experience learning curve for sure. Yeah I can't imagine you're like flipping tape technical fouls sports there are. I luckily have not committed any but you know their players aren't so seized like obscene gestures or say certain things Li by being a bold team. We have gotten into a more than one a little snafus here in the past. But it's okay no foul.

"I would love for you to speak for about two minutes just about something that you're passionate about something that's coming up. It can be whatever you want. This is your moment to sound off. Something I've been thinking a lot about recently honestly Of course like everybody in the wake of Kobe's death is just our mortality as people you know what that means to life in general and how it's important to be aware of that but also not let it make you nihilistic in make you you know forget that you know whatever meaning is out there as well meeting you're searching for whatever meeting you prescribe to something you know but it doesn't make it meaning list death and thinking about death in. That sense can do that sometimes. I know after Kobe Pass. I mean I I realized that when I was a kid you know and I feel like so many did so it was it was just. It was different. You almost feel like deaths in closer proximity to necessarily feel as grand scope as those figures that we idolize in Oh but mortality had thinking about. My mortality had me really intrude confronting a lot of my friendships or relationships. That were in a way. Kinda you know on on weird terms just making sure that should anything happen because it really could happen at any second anytime that everyone knows that you know. It's all love in that. Were always were always leaving with a good taste each other's mouth. You know what I mean. I've been thinking about that also. Been Thinking about romance and how. It's so hard to balance that in a career like this where you have to move around so much and it feels like it's like the biggest things you need in a relationship like communication. Trust all those kind of things and even if you have that. It's so difficult whenever you have to spend so much time apart and so morbid. That's what I've been thinking about like this really been thinking about the last time I was in L. A. Day that it it was so intense. Ooh I got to LAX. Open my phone God. A text message from my ex. Wa hadn't spoken to in months and he's just like Yoko Kobe. Has It really hit me? Like he's he's like not a super sportsperson but like from la. So it's just all the ties. The parallels are so surreal being here. Staying downtown passing the staple center is just like Yo Yo especially when you around everywhere you said are. I saw r.i.p Kobe everywhere and it was like I know I know he is it. Just it was almost like it. You couldn't do. It would be impossible to forget. It was impossible it. You couldn't sounds you. You WanNa move on. But you couldn't. Because the city was in mourning. It's such a grand level that it felt like death was just like think the thoughts of death were at every and yet why his there's no at least in my lifetime Other deaths at a really had that same way disarm like a cultural level so yeah rest in peace to Kobe Bryant and his daughter so to sign.

"I feel like since I've been able to travel around with film. I realized that I'm a more nomadic. Spirit you know than than than I ever really knew but I think in terms of the stories that I that I want to create a lot of that really is still centered in that region centered in New Orleans. I know my next film for the most part is GonNa take place in New Orleans and It's just it's home. I and also feel like a pride and responsibility to to shine not only a light back into New Orleans to pump some opportunity back into New Orleans. You know to To have a native voice you know help elevated even further into the spotlight. It is home you know even though I have such a interesting relationship with it. You know But I also feel like like I said New Orleans makes me makes you feel like you can go anywhere and it's you're you're like I feel like going to New York didn't feel like anything. It felt like easy breezy and I don't know why that is. I feel that's something that I don't even know how to articulate. I just feel like you go into New Orleans and you don't and you leave New Orleans for some reason feeling like everywhere else has a piece of cake that's interesting. Oh you're saying that it's like it's more work everything else is. I don't know what it is I don't even know how titillated I just know. It's like a feeling of like I went to New York. It felt like from New Orleans. I can handle New York in the best way new New Orleans. Isn't anything like to hand like a fun place to be in into live? It's like but it's for some reason it just feels like I don't know I don't see I don't even know how to articulate feeling. Where are some of the spaces that you build for yourself or fine for yourself in the moments of thinking of creating an idiot? Ding usually playing instrumental music. Whether that's why Pinault or jazz guitar like West Montgomery stuff that when I'm writing helps me get into like for some reason. I just need some audio stimulation. Sometimes just to really get concentrated but things with lyrics will often boudreau me out of that and I'll be like starts singing along to but instrumental music changes that I like to be in places with a lot of natural light you know and lighting has so much of an effect. Even the color of the walls have an effect on on your mood in space. You like I'd say like this place makes you feel like you feel like there's so much like coming in is like a a new would appear a wide over here you know. Led Lights or You know I feel like The environment where man has a really direct effect on how? I'm feeling how able I'm even feeling to to do something it's interesting. How an editing oftentimes we editing? Complete darkness though. Yeah so interesting. How in writing you need so much like like in editing. Your yeah contrast yeah. It's a solitary work as well right like you go from like this group of people everyone coming together and then in editing. I wonder like also another not film. I imagine it's like evil mastermind and workshop and it's also like it's the beginning of editing. I feel like it's such a time where you're like. You're writing high because you're like. Oh Shit we really shot this whole thing now. Then you like reckoning with all the things that you thought and of course the first wave I think for everyone I know is like whenever you get your footage backing review at. You're always singing like I should have done bought. I should've done but then after a while I think you start you come to like an appreciation understanding of what you have. Then you start for me. I feel that's always a part of getting into the mood and head space into editing. But it's so interesting. How the beginning ender or so solitary with that bulk time and production is such a collaborative situation. You know I wonder for you. And of course you're at the beginning of a really brilliant career but I wonder if you're thinking about your legacy and how you're doing things whether that be how you building out your crews or how The projects that you're taking on. I wonder if he were to overhear someone speaking about you now. Ten years from now. If you're thinking about how how how you WANNA be perceived or the or the kind of imprints that you want to leave. I feel like I I have moments where I think about that. But then it almost feels like restrictive to think about it in that way. You know because it's something that I really can't control. I feel like work that I do. The best is always except I feel the most comfortable and stuff that you know. I feel like I have just a just to almost visceral sort of attachment to you know and whatever my creative voice sort of dictates or whatever. Whatever things I make I feel like I need to be comfortable with it myself. End of the day more than anything else. I think it adds pressure that you don't need to have pressure already. You know I feel like it's so case to case product or project that like when I was a kid at NOCA- when we wrote down our goals I wrote down that I wanted to be the greatest filmmaker the twentieth century. I wrote that down at my high school and I got clown for that. You know but I just I. I wanted that to be true achey. But it's so subjective. There's no way that could ever be crowned you know what I'm saying. That could ever be determined but I wanted to to have that in the back of my head the whole way through like like. I don't know I don't know I just I'd I I think thinking about it. That sort of broad stroke long-term is everyone does it. You know it's it's human you know But I don't feel like it's necessary as productive as just really following your gut your in things on case to case level instead of thinking about. How is this going to fit into the narrative of my career? Yeah you know. Yeah Yeah I feel like I run into so many conversations with people who are like generation older. And what's Your Five Year Plan? Where are you going like? I don't know I don't know what I'm having for lunch. Exactly that's really brilliant and into you know you're talking a little bit about earlier but working in community with people working with people that you really love. I think is where those things are founded as well where it's like you could be the greatest filmmaker of the twenty first century. Just because you're the kindest like we're there's many metrics of success exactly. It's open for other people who are listening. I wonder what advice you have Who for someone who might feel like they're having a difficult time finding their voice It's really useful to hear you speak with such confidence and such grace about bringing your visions to life. But I wonder if if someone is listening and needed advice advice to offer I would say. Trust your gut. Listen to feedback verify feedback in the same way. That feedback checks appease. Don't always verbally articulate this but think about where the feedback is coming from Facilitate feedback objectively. Because it's important to have people that tell you honest things and Don't hold back just tell you what they think you want a year. I also feel like rely on your friends if you're in a situation where you don't have a lot of resources and it doesn't seem like There are a lot of things to grab onto assure you that production can follow through the moment. You sort of build a tribe of people at all sorts of feel so much more possible So and I feel like when you don't have a lot of money you know that's the only people that would willing to do any of that kind of stuff oftentimes with you our friends. So that's a big thing I always say And then I feel like you have to trust your gut and follow your instincts. One hundred way under percent of the way because the other day we're only just looking for new interesting perspectives with work to something. That is a change in evolution deviation the only way to truly original is to follow your original feelings you know all your follow your instincts those kinds of things you know so yeah. I feel like the also I say for the first feature. Make a story about something that you have personal experience with or that you can directly speak about the connection of it to your life. I just feel like it. Take make an answers all the questions that you have. You know if you feel like Oh does this line sound right blah blah blah. If you know how it sounds if you know how your grandma says it then you know how is mother in the scene would say you know what I mean like. It's just helps everything. It makes it all so much more homeless simpler. I love that advice as really sound. Yeah you're you don't have to have that room for the inner satay. How can you really go wrong when you know this is really like you know what I mean? Yeah who's GONNA CHECK ME BOO exactly? Not because I know the whole thing I think. Oftentimes there is this incredible pressure that we all put ourselves as creatives to be perfect out the gate and it's really brilliant to hear you talk about those little moments of trust because that gets the thing to the finish line sometimes and trust trust. Trust in your own in yourself. Trust new creative instincts cliches. I kind of sound. It's so true things sticks exactly like it's it's a universal truth. That's why it's Cliche. I've been climbing myself because I'm like you sound like a hallmark card. Look doesn't lie..

"Where there's so much ahead but already so much that he's accomplished. He's so young. Where's I hate to say? But at age twenty he's already accomplished some directors wildest dreams so if he could have your attention please our guest today. Phillip Human So. My background is mostly in visual arts and I think a lot about how an artists are making the object. There's a surrender. That happens where you handed off. You know the script. You're still living with it. But do you feel that release or what is the? What are the motions that come well? It's interesting because I feel super. I feel confident my in my voice in in that kind of stuff but I mean you never feel completely comfortable feel. I feel like it's like I learned so I went to the Sundance labs with the script and the Sundance labs are amazing. Like I went in with an idea and they tore it apart in the best way possible. I thought I had an idea. That movie was movies. Called Magnolia Bloom. It's about the New Orleans Black Panthers and I went in there with an idea about what that movie was and it verified a lot of ideas. About what the movie was to me but also kind of just want expanded that but it was interesting. It was like the advisors were amazing vets but it also felt like all of that feedback all of the conversations around. The film were dictated by the screenwriter. Like it was more about me asking them what I wanted to get. Notes on as opposed to them. Coming out BLOB. With here are notes. You know which I thought was very constructive and was also a period where we were really really kind of motivated to embrace ourselves in our connections to the piece I feel like writers. Oftentimes we are aware of a lot of what we're writing. How how much of that? How much of ourselves we can see in writing. But oftentimes I feel like at least in my case in the past. I've tried like push that away. Make it less overt in this case. It's like why make it less over like it's so you are. You're the you're the artis I mean. You're the creator of it so I feel like that was also dope perspective. That a from the labs that really shaped draft as it is now so I feel confident about it but I also feel scared in nervous and all that kind of stuff because I made the first feature made a made in shooting with a budget of ten to fifteen thousand. This film is a period piece. I mean we're going to need millions. Yeah so it's just is leveling up. It's it's nothing to complain about. I mean I'm very very excited. Very fortunate it's just new ground new territory. That's wild to think about. I mean even in general as a person who's outsider looking at like I go to watch movies and thinking about the budget and scale and just the sheer number of people that come together to make something. Possibles kind of wild How when you especially at this stage in your career? You have demonstrated promise as a filmmaker as a writer as a camera operator. There's a level of trust that I'm sure people have with your future. Right now I wonder how you maintain a level of vulnerability in those spaces or is that even a goal if yours. I feel like I'm always vulnerable. I feel like I'm such a an open book because I'm sure in some ways especially when you're selling something you have to go in with certain level bravado talking about this the other day like I feel like as artists like there's a certain amount of of I don't know if it's ego or narcissism or whatever it is but you have to believe that what you want to say the work that you're making is important enough for someone to listen to. Your Voice is important. Enough that in itself takes a certain amount of self confidence but no I just feel like there's a healthy amount of that that's really necessary to put anything out there or at least to be able to put it out there and stomach it So yeah whenever I look at artists. And or even you're saying being at the Sundance Lab people tearing it apart like my soul is like yes. It's so hard to sit down and just take it until I realized another thing with like any with any film like the process of getting notes like when I first started getting them I was so emotional about every little thing. Rebuttal Rebuttal bottle. And it's like it doesn't it wasn't constructive until when I was doing Note sessions for Burning Kane. Ep Ben he was like really really motivated. Me Not say a single thing walking there. Just let people you go around the room. Everyone says they're notes. I can't rebuttal them because at the end of the day like it's an argument you know. They saw what they saw. They had had the feeling the reaction to that they had And it also makes it somewhat awkward. You know because it can get so uncomfortable when you're having an argument with somebody about notes piece you invited them to like. I want your opinion but I feel so. Let's deal with that. Yeah tell me about making the video for your attention please. Okay Film. I should say well. So it's called Imagine Moon Colony And it is about a kid named Henry Wade It's nineteen seventy. He asked his family to imagine the twenty twenty three Black Lens. So he creates. You know abstract visuals based on his interpretation of their ideas you know and it was interesting because I knew initially I wanted to shoot that piece. Only super eight but I realized the potential switch formats PA- super super sixteen was such an interesting sort of you know idea proposition. You know 'cause I've also been experimenting a lot recently with varying formats when it comes to shooting you know especially the documentary form as well but I wanted to show a family living influence. I wanted to show You know a mother and father who had a lot of sexual energy and we're still grabbing each other making out still like just in a this. I don't know in a in a more. Celebratory display our blackness. You know what I mean. I felt like especially from making a film like Burning Kane and I've been talking to a lot of people about it recently like I'm not in this sort of I guess more more I don't know I was. I think my head space back when I was making films. A lot more bleak is today but I've noticed such a shift in the work that I've been making. Its I mean significantly happier now. Just kind of objectively. I wonder for you if there is any way in which you feel protective over the stories that you're trying to tell or if you feel like there's a push to stretch beyond the things that feel true or real to you. I feel like it's becoming my work. Overtime is kind of evolving into becoming less and less overtly connected to me or less and less were like burning Kane. It's pretty SPA. I mean I grew up in that environment. I grew up in that state. I grew up in that sort of atmosphere. You know the Moon Colony. It's it's about things that I kinda WanNa see things that I'm feeling less so than looking at it as a direct one to one interpretation or representation of me and all those kinds of things I feel like is really just kind of a natural evolution to wider. Conversation may be more universal conversation. I don't know if that's really the word but I don't know the separation grows a little bit. Yeah it's such an interesting talent. I feel like for directors especially marginalized folks. Where there is that push for universality? You know that we don't other groups I just feel like don't have to go through You know you look at even grenade during the wrinkle in time or Dee Rees during the recent filming. She did based on the novel. There's this almost like okay. We're doing this stuff for yourself and now like you have to do it for everyone else. and I feel like that pressure or I don't know if that if that is something that's come across your desk and where you are in your career right now But it is something that I feel consistently kind of frustrated by Well say this before I get into that conversation. 'cause engine conversation abnd are brilliant though like they. Those are two powerhouses. I think you know for me. I can't speak about any other filmmaker because no one's patterns wrong in a knowns I mean and I feel like is nothing wrong with really seizing the creative opportunities that are presented to you. Whatever those may be for me. I've I've always just only ever wanted to make things that I personally right. Direct best just to say you know and it's not the most necessarily lucrative route to go about it in any respect for me. I just think about at the end of the day I want. I want to be able to hundred percent standby everything I make. So whatever allows me to have the most creative freedom really you know at least for me always kind of been directly seen just stuff that I create from inception on. I mean at the end of the day. It is our and we're we're having fun. Wonder if you could talk a little bit about Also home and location I think it's always interesting to get opportunities to talk to artists who are from cities such as New Orleans or the Miami's or Detroit's where they're just so singular and also D- But being able to be a voice from those spaces I wonder how that impacts you. I mean New Orleans I think all of us all the artists that I know also from New Orleans like we're like a family like John Tease when appears even even though Benn's island is in from New Orleans. Essentially a New Orleans. Ben Directed Pieces Southern Wild in e burning cane. He just film Wendy just came out also just saw last night beautiful. Yeah he's a he's a he's a he's a to me is the legendary director already. I'm I I don't know yeah busies really take And I feel like new in itself creates that atmosphere in the in terms of like you kind of feel like you're already like it's like us against the world anyway near down there because it can also feel very very very isolated sometimes in the best end honestly most challenging way sometimes But it's home. Nothing really ever going to replace that feeling of familiarity..

Denecker has changed jobs and finds herself working taking classes being fulltime. Mom and wife and yes. We all may have the same hours in the day but her office isn't quite the traditional space. She wonders if you have any advice for staying motivated. That's like one of those questions where I feel like I'm not qualified to answer because it's like this is like a woman that's like a wife and a mother and those are things like I have in like experienced. Just continue their that perseverance to want to explore your creativity and I feel like you will come to you. Our next question is from Yolanda from Florida. What did you do when people told you know or that? You couldn't do something I think when people Tell me know that I can't do something. I respect their truth here. No I'm just like okay. Cool you know and just carry on and execute on doubt That's something I've never struggled with you know and I think like you know if you're doing something you're not either really love the really eighty. You're not doing enough. You know like I never really let that affect me on. I accept People's truth for what they are understanding that we all see life differently and I'm not interested in convincing people to seem you know life the way that I think it should be. It's more so of just how I see life in as an artist. Here's my painting if you don't like it and I mean if you like biding.

Oftentimes <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> it's easy to look <Speech_Female> at someone with mortgage <Speech_Female> impressive illustrious <Speech_Female> career <Speech_Female> and think about <Speech_Female> all of the difficulties <Speech_Female> on it but hearing <Speech_Female> her speak from <Speech_Female> the space of inspiration <Speech_Female> and optimism <Speech_Female> really. <Speech_Female> Makes me feel supercharged. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Mucci gays energy <Speech_Female> is <Speech_Music_Female> so <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> infectious <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> so <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> bright. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> And <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> it's great <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> to know that <Speech_Female> especially <Speech_Female> in the space of <Speech_Female> thinking about the future <Speech_Music_Female> and thinking about things in <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> the Greek beyond <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> that there are people <Speech_Female> who can quite <Speech_Female> literally represent the <Speech_Music_Female> human race <Speech_Music_Female> who have <Speech_Music_Female> such a brightness <Speech_Music_Female> and levity <Speech_Music_Female> an optimism in the <Speech_Music_Female> work that they're doing <Speech_Music_Female> during today's <Speech_Music_Female> conversation <Speech_Music_Female> we had a brief chat <Speech_Female> about what would happen if <Speech_Music_Female> we encountered life forms <Speech_Music_Female> on planets <Speech_Female> and other galaxies <Speech_Female> and I'd really <Speech_Music_Female> like Mugica Ambassador <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Music_Female> what I find <Speech_Female> to be so <Speech_Music_Female> <Advertisement> interesting <Speech_Female> in <Speech_Female> the ways in which we <Speech_Music_Female> are socialized around <Speech_Music_Female> space or socialized <Speech_Female> around space <Speech_Female> travel or <Speech_Female> any level of things <Speech_Female> that we see represented <Speech_Female> in the media <Speech_Female> and movies <Speech_Female> there.

"This is the part of the show where we give Hulu subscribers chance to ask you their own set of questions after watching your attention please now streaming on Hulu. Our first question is from Eliya from North Carolina. Is it recommended to earn at least a master's degree to work for NASA? I would recommend depending on what you want to do. If you WANNA be a professor I'd say yes gopher but one thing that I've noticed as a scientist an engineer in many companies is that it really matters. You're passionate matters. The most as far as what you bring to the table your experience a not necessarily your degrees where I work. Currently there are people that are sitting at the board table putting in their ideas. That have no more than a high school education people with Bachelor's degrees people with Masters degrees and people with PhD's so don't think that your degree is a barrier innocence. But know that there are organizations where they do use it as a ceiling so I would say think about what you want to do ultimately and see whether or not degrees help the PhD or a Master's helps or if they're looking more at experience and your your global perspective. Our next question is from Lenny from New Jersey. Oh New Jersey from Jersey. How do you feel about Space Force next question? I have the same answer for people who ask about. What do you think of space x and Elon? Musk and do think it's competition and I say no. It's not a competition where we all work together and I love any excuse for people to be aware of space. I'll it like that if you if space force gives you more awareness attention to oh there. Are Things going out in space? Let me research more. What kind of things. What kind of defense related topics you would need within this base force? Well okay then that kind of achieved. My goal of you have more awareness. So I like putting it positively in that sense. What do I think space? I love any excuse that gets people looking to the stars and our last question comes from guiler or maybe gahler from Azerbaijan. Have you ever thought that there might be civilizations? Advanced enough to hide themselves in the cosmos. Ooh That's an interesting question. I think if there was some civilization out there I doubt they would want to hide themselves from us because the ability to make contact with another civilization is incredible and we know based on some of the observations of what exoplanets are nearby that the closest one is still going to be so far away. And we maybe we'll make contact but the from maybe radio waves or electro magnetically but as far as meeting people. I think that's probably not going to happen. We Need Interplanetary Barbecue Potato Salad. No I don't know I mean maybe. They saw some of the things that happened in our society with they may wanNA hide themselves. But I don't think scientifically they would want to hide themselves so this is really fun. Okay what I Mike you to do for the next two minutes fish is talk about something that you've been thinking a lot about. This is a part of the segment where you can just sound off things. You're obsessed with things that you want people to hear a message that you want to leave behind Go Yeah it's funny because growing up and going through different scientific disciplines one thing that I am trying to combat is people that feel like they need to advance by stepping on other people and I want to project to other people like other women and other scientists men and women but especially to women that like. Hey you you can do this. You stay true to who you are. Whoever that is and five for your space and fight for your ability to be you and be a powerful you and be a leader U. N. b. A BOSS. You and you have to not sacrifice who you are To to make things work and to make things happen hopefully this inspires somebody or or resonates with someone out there. That's in any field. That's not necessarily science or engineering or aerospace where you're struggling and you're sitting and thinking to yourself how do how do I reach these? The audience that. I'm trying to reach and do I have to sacrifice who I am to to make that happen. And the answer is no there is a way where you can stay true to who you are and Um stare authentic self and still achieve what you need to achieve and it might be a little bit naive. And maybe you to rose colored..

"My ideal world is that everybody takes a little bit of inspiration from from scientists as far as how do you have discourse right? I'm not saying an ideal world is where everyone gets along. No no one's GonNa get along all the time but an ideal world is if you approach a problem a little bit more scientifically understanding that scientists also could have some bias that you interject. You have to understand it. There's everybody has inherent bias but if you want to approach it from the sense that like okay. Let's ask the right questions. Let's come together. Let's have an open mind. That is what my ideal world is that the world's kind of becomes smaller we all understand a little bit more about each other and have discourse in a healthy way. I'm Kimberly drew and you're listening to your attention. Please a Hulu podcast with iheartradio. When I was younger I thought I wanted to be an engineer. I was so fascinated by the ways in which engineers bridges between people on the every day and scientific information so being able to talk to a real life engineer. Who's doing that work? But on an interplanetary level. I'm so stoked. Today I'll be talking to Mucci Gay Cooper. She is a scientist a scholar. She's also so young that it kind of scares me getting prepared for today's interview. I just kept thinking about how many things music must know and be thinking about consistently on a day to day basis. We're talking super duper brains here and more than that. Malaysia gays so invested in reaching out to so many other people to invite them into the world of Science Mucci gays been immersed in math science computers and space. Since she was a teenager today she works as a planetary protection engineer which means she makes sure earth and other planets don't get contaminated when we go to space in other words. She's not just saving the world. She saving the entire universe so if she could have your attention please our guest today. Lose Cooper is Cooper and I am a planetary protection engineer. The work that you do is so incredible because I think a lot of US laypeople non science. We know about space travel. But we don't know about the intricacies that go into getting out there and I wonder if you could talk about the work that you do specifically in terms of protecting both environments beyond and then protecting people who were here on earth. Yeah I mean it's a really big idea if you think about it in the universal scale but people have been doing it on several scales just here on earth right you go through. Tsa You're trying to travel to another country and they make sure that your fruits and vegetables that you bring back doesn't contain something that may harm the destination that you're going to so in a sense that's somewhat of a planetary protection on a smaller scale on earth scale and when scale that up you really have to understand when you're sending spacecraft out in two different planets or moons. You have to make sure that it doesn't contain some earth microbe that may in fact negatively affect up of any possible ecosystem. How do you remain optimistic in the work that you're doing because I feel like you know so much like your job is to kind of know? Everything anticipate so much. How do you maintain what seems like such a positive energy about all the work that you're doing? Yeah it's an active process. I think if I look at the team members around me and it takes a village to do something if someone says I did this I did that. Well that's not one hundred percent accurate you know. It takes a village to get things accomplished and when I look at my team. That's what keeps me positive. They're the future. They're eventually going to be bosses on their own projects and so that really keeps me optimistic and positive because whatever. I'm feeling negative about today is going to change tomorrow. And what does that look like outside of a work environment do you have? I know that you're an athlete as well. What are some of the other ways in which you keep yourself inspired in curious in the world? Yeah One person that I think of. She actually happens to work for NPR. Sharon McNary she is my inspiration. She back in the day. I used to not know how to swim and not know how to ride a bike and I still. It's arguable. I still but I used the world of triathlons to get over those fears and really learn how to do that but I was still afraid. I couldn't tread water here comes Sharon. She's like why don't you do a triathlon is said well because I can't water I feel like I'm gonNA drown well. There's this race that if you feel scared swim to the edge and stand up. We'll shoot I have no excuse so I love other people that break down the excuses that I have that checked me and call me out and say no you do not have a reason to not do x Y and Z. Push yourself so. I love finding other people that do that for me and do that to other people that. I see that a lot in the triathlon field. Because I do have this fear I do have to push myself out of my comfort zone to really achieve something bigger than myself. Yeah one of the things that I find most remarkable about your story is your ability to articulate it to other people and it's just so powerful because I was like last night when I was thinking about coming here today. I was so intimidated. And just like Oh. She's so smart and I hope I have good questions I wonder for you and I know that you're really driven by inspiration If you could talk about your desire if there is a desire to be almost like a liaison to the work that you're doing for people who might have a curiosity or might have doubt. Yeah I I love me and my passion especially growing up not having as much people that believe and people believed in me for me to be where I am so I'm happy and thankful for that but I know that they were kids around me. That didn't have that person. So I love outreach especially talking to middle school. Elementary school aged kids where they are in their formative years. Where if something bad happens. It could really have a huge impact in their life. And so yeah. I would love to be a liaison. I tried to do that as much as I can. You know despite all the time that I have to take for work but yeah. That's kind of the my duty some other something that I owed to. The next generation is to inspire them whether or not to be a scientist or something else. I don't care if if I talked to some kids and no one wants to be a scientist. But someone's like I want to be a lawyer. I want to be an artist. I want to be something else. I just want them to be inspired period. I so relate to that I think oftentimes too and in some of my background is in the arts. Of course there's so much that can be lost if you don't get that spark early on like just the way that our education system is set up you have to be constantly learning. You have to start pushing yourself or you feel like you're running a race you can never win exactly and it's not always saying. Hey just be be inspired to be to see that light coming out of someone in that. Light is so abundantly. Bright for you definitely. Oh I try. Can you talk a bit about putting together your video which I love so much I mean there are so many people behind it? That just took what I said and put these visuals to that. Made it so much more inspirational even like well. What what is this but yeah it was just a lot of stream of thought and kind of our conversation right now there. Some questions asked the kind of prompted me to woks about what what inspires me. And what our purposes in life and. That's kind of the ultimate question for me personally So yeah it didn't. It wasn't difficult to to make the video in a sense of it was just. Yeah it was just pulling out what I feel. Yeah do you feel like there's a lot of opportunities to employ creative storytelling in the work that you're doing? I think in this country a lot of times. We talk about this. Really firm defied between the stem field and the arts field. What was it like to fuse? Those two things together and making this project or is it something that naturally happens. Yeah well that's why I love talking about steam and not necessarily stem. Art is very important even in my day to day work if you are a scientists and you're doing ground big groundbreaking work. It doesn't matter. If you can't communicate it to your customers to the people who fund your effort and so the importance of storytelling and creative arts influences that is pivotal to really communicating. What we're doing and why it's important because if nobody knows the impact of what you're doing it Kinda doesn't matter I mean it doesn't a sense but it's our duty to take that effort and take the time to communicate it absolutely. I want people to feel involved and understood and then like you said that. It's not just about yeah. It's it's about being able to communicate to so many different parties. Yeah Super Interesting and it comes in handy to just speaking to colleagues. If you can't translate your concept adjusted to another scientist. I mean there are a lot of us that need help in articulating. What we're doing just person to person beyond that is already a problem if you can't do that So yeah I think on many levels we. The science community need help in communicating better to peers and the public. Do you think that as an American society or even you know within the many communities in which intersect Do you feel like people are really open to discovery or do you feel like resistance when you start talking about the work that you're doing and trying to expand people's minds because the things that you're tackling are quite literally so much bigger than us Well it's interesting when I saying the video is everyone. Has this fear that I have a fear to when you cross the unknown. Sometimes you're just afraid of change and I know myself I mean I could point out my own flaws where I would hear an idea. It was like no. This is completely different. I doubt it's right. And when you sit down and you think about it and you put aside your fear and your ego then you can really be open to the change and I think that translates to well beyond science to society is change is scary and hard sometimes and you have to put that aside your ego and your fear aside and really listen and be open to it. It's such a superpower just day to day or you hit obstacle in your like welp wrapping it up for you and we're all human and it happens and it's okay but if you just recognize those elements then you can kind of. Make yourself a little bit better. I wonder on the note of Ego and just by virtue of you've been doing the work that you've been doing. Do you ever find yourself feels really silly but ever find thrill seeking where you're like. I need to find the next level up because I wanted to push these boundaries embark on this new thing as far as my thrill seeking today. It's more about looking at other people. I feel like I'm established enough in my place in my place of occupation where now. I'm starting to look at other people and my thrill seeking is how do I push the boundaries to help.

"hulu" Discussed on Your Attention Please - A Hulu Podcast

"I've always envisioned a world that was based off art in the reason why I say that is because art brings people together big allegations future and Travis Scott live can I was tripping out like the diversity of people that came to see these artists me now imagine if like art was the highest form of currency are in a way where. I feel like when you talk about like you go to these communities and highlight. Some of the art programs are not funded in like how arts is like low on the totem pole. Like imagine if that was reversed. It's just one of those things I think give to a world revolved around art. I think would you would see a lot more of a peaceful world because I just noticed dance music. All those universal languages unite people drew. And you're listening to your attention please. A Hulu podcast with iheartradio. Fine now you might have already seen your attention please on Hulu but if you haven't let me sum it up for you really quickly. It's a short series about nine amazing people who are defining what our future might look like. It inspires us to think about the black creators of today and tomorrow the show invites us to dream and have more imagination about what's going on in relationship to black culture and black creatives. I hope that this podcast provides a deeper perspective on the work. That each of the nine fabulous people that are featured on the show what they bring to the world. I hope that everyone leaves with just different and more bold perspective of these incredibly complicated figures and I hope that that complication of their narratives helps each of us to walk away and ourselves to live more boldly and to make our own bits of history. As for me I'm a writer curator and activist passionate about sharing black stories. And I couldn't be more excited to share space with these heroes today. We'll be joined by M A I Aka John and little bump 'em is stands for movement art is and that's what they're all about movement. Their workers visually stunning an absolutely moving to them. Movement is entertainment but it's also so much more it's a pathway to empathy to connection and to actions my first interjection to Ma. I and more specifically little box was actually on YouTube. I was doing research for some projects and discovered low books video with Yo. Yo Ma getting to see little light across the floor and defy gravity left an impression upon me and my thinking about the future of black art and today. I'm thrilled to be joined both by Buck. And his incredible creative partner John to learn more about the work that they do together and to learn more about the bright future for the collective. Ma I so if they could have your attention please. Our guest today A. I'm John Bugs. I'm little and together. We are enemy. I so for anyone. Who's listening who isn't familiar with the work that you do. I wonder you could just give a general introduction to Ma. I why you decided to start it. And specifically because twenty sixteen is when you guys started. I think around that time bucket. I have known each other since two thousand nine. So we've been dancing together for a really long time. Then we had a period where Kinda buck when off and was torn with Madonna and torn with your mind I was still street performing in La and then we both happened to sink back up in Las Vegas. When I was dancing for Cirque du Soleil the Michael Jackson show at Mandalay Bay. Buck was happened to be in that same show and even back in two thousand nine. We shared the same passion for where we wanted to take dance. We WANTED TO ELEVATE STREET. Dance artistically theatrically and just we shared that passionate like bringing back the era of like Fred astaire gene. Kelly's Gregory Hines Nicholas. Brothers like quin dancers and movement artists like household names. You know and so we shared that passion and that passion was like the root of why we started Ma. I wanted to put movement artistry in dance on a higher prestige level in change people's perception of the art form that we do so in two thousand sixteen. I happen to leave Cirque du Soleil. 'cause buck was like convincing me. Like hey man is great. You're working there but we need to like. We need to start our own thing. You know I mean kind of like you know our own Cirque du Soleil. Let's say you know what I mean like our own brand and film because one of the strongest points I saw John. Bugs was his His amazing creative way of combining dance and film because when I met him now he was already in that space. You know what I'm saying. Like mixing what means a lot to him and you know socially and And his movement and telling stories with that so when I met him he was. Just you know. We just knew him as a freestyle popper and he was extremely good at that we street form together but the more we talk to each other more we really started to realize that we're like minded about the trajectory of street dance and where we where we see it and And Yeah I started seeing. He started making these films. That were just unbelievable. You know and people weren't doing anything like that and street dance especially in our genre. People weren't making films about homeless people. You know and about bringing awareness around a Lotta these different things that we see on everyday basis you know and it just means nothing to the average person but like the he just gives so many different topics that means a lot to him so much substance and we wanted to. We want to build their platform again. Because slowly dance has kind of you know diversity like back background behind the scenes which is good because a lot of dancers dreams now are to like dance for a certain artist but like a lot of times we forget how important how how power for our own artistry is in its own. I wonder if you could talk a little bit. More about that Where do you hope that the Dan style that you do goes? Or what are the things that motivate you in terms of sharing your dance with the world? I mean I think the goal in the trajectories you know. We consider what we fine art. You know the same way. People Admire Basquiat or Picasso or Van Gogh We strive to have our artistry. Hopefully be honored on that same level. You know so really. The trajectory is just to break down those boundaries and borders that people tend to put on street dance. You know they tend to. It's just a freestyle thing or it's a street thing or know we try to constantly kind of push back on those stereotypes and just keep stretching out the possibilities of what it could be an also just like you know when we talk about Freddie stairs and or Gene Kelly Michael Jackson's or any of those powerful artists like we feel like every year. There should be a dance film. That's honored at the ask. Why can't we have a film as powerful as the color purple or the revenue? Or I don't know. I'm just thinking of films Schindler's List Films that pop into my brain by can't dance be pushing those narratives and now we start to change. What a dance film really could look like so trajectory wise. Hopefully just more award winning worthy dance films and also just in general the genre being honored on the same level as any other fine artists. It's wonderful speaking of video. So you guys worked together to create this really beautiful film. That was aired on your attention. Please could you talk a little bit about the creative process? What went into building out. That idea highlights difficulties in the production. Who's an amazing experience working with their film? And you know we got to really hone in on what we do. Best which is performance in the direction of it as far as You know how we wanted to start it and We worked with a great camera. Operator Cam you've been working with him for so long and he's he's actually Worked a lot with us on our company so he knows exactly how to shoot us and it was. It was just beautiful. We got to really tell the story wanted to tell. The story was about just honoring the legacy of the dancers that came before us the black dancers that came before earl snake hips Tucker's to the different groups the G. Styles dealers even in our neighborhood that you guys don't know about the help cultivate our movement in such a way that it's you know come. A global phenomenon poppins became a global phenomenon due to you know these people that were like rooted in our history and Mrs Johnson became a global phenomenon because people deeply rooted in history in Memphis of We wanted to tell Dole's stories as well as you know the ones that a lot of people know about such as like earl snake hips or the Nicholas Brothers. And all of those is we wanted to really just make a film that impact that really shows that impact that they had on us and also the trajectory and where we see that type of artistry like books was talking about before like so you see the setting in the museum and I don't like if you haven't seen it go I don't WanNa give too much away. I don't know if I'm given too much around as Vargas but like if you see the setting that we're in you see that museum setting you see the frame you see like what we're trying to we're going with it the storytelling with it and how we visualize and CR selves is fine are in that picture. So within credible Spoken word artists. Beano are calling me books. Columbia number is Robin Sanders. One of the most incredible Artists of our time period is shot out to Robyn who added the strong vocal narrative that we needed to kind of tie it all together shoutout to choose from Miami. He scored the film. Both of the songs you here in the film come from Miami artists which is really cool for me. Being from Miami's just given ourselves an opportunity to not only create something powerful but we. We liked to stick with our tribe in our our people so it was nice it was it was nice on so many levels to be able to provide jobs to different people that we have been building with for years and give them an opportunity to put their artistry on a platform. Like Hulu so it was. It was Redman so by way of brief introduction. A lot of the work that I do is promoting the work of black artists and a visual art space and I often try to think about ways to reduce the barriers of access between a public audience and the art form itself. And it's interesting to see both in the film and just in general in the work that you're doing Trying to make sure that people under not just elevating dance. Because I think that that's a whole other conversation you guys are saying like what is here is greatness We want to invite you into the practice of doing this to or appreciating it in these ways. I wonder for you all what your goals are in terms of where dance finds itself or where dance audience is find especially the styles that y'all are doing. Is that make sense? It makes sense. I mean.
