"I talked about it a lot yesterday Summer of Soul, which is capturing six weekends of live performances that happened in the summer of 1969 same summer as Woodstock. Footage that was not lost but stored in a basement for 50 years. Multi camera angles incredible audio recordings of everybody from Stevie Wonder to And Mahalia Jackson, Mongo Santamaria fifth Dimension. Abbey Lincoln and Max Roach, Nina Simone, Sly and the family stone. It's an incredible document, and this footage had never been seen for the last 50 years. They finally cut it together. Got the funding to put the movie together and Questlove directed it assembled. It went through 43 hours of footage and selected the best bits and he did a stellar job and the movie is coming out in early July on Hulu July, 2nd. And we're going to be doing a conversation as part of KCRW's behind the screens series. I'll be talking with producers. One of them is the one who unearthed the the tapes and put the film together. The three of them will be joining me for conversation as part of behind the screens, which is happening at the end of the month..

I think her also pushes her character for a little bit and i think she she has her first big moment in this scene where she basically talks about like her priorities that for a while she was so concerned with her own mortality. Gi wasn't focused on. Everybody thought and also like when she was so focused on her career. She wasn't focused on any relationships or having kids and she just didn't think about it.

Scully no matter what path you choose always insist on saying that you're a medical doctor but basically melissa's like it's fine. What do it. She basically gives like that philosophy again very melissa. There is no right or wrong. life is just a path. It's not even about the end point about the stuff you do along.

With the army of the dead starring date by teesta and a lot of other great cast members as well which name off here in a little bit but your thoughts on watching this movie eat is a spiritual successor to his dawn of the dead movie that he made in the early two thousands but it's not a direct sequel and it's still something a little bit different. It's like a heist film. Based in las vegas where they want to go ahead and steal. I think it's two hundred million dollars if i'm not mistaken out of a fault. One of the casinos in las vegas. Which where i'm at. But las vegas happens to be a controlled area where it's all walled off. Because of some zombies in fact the whole city is now infested islamise impact.

I was in oregon. Where in oregon is at the time it was ninety four percent white and At the time it was the head. The highest concentration of white supremacists in the united states.

Two hundred nineteen point seven million their advertising revenue actually two hundred six percent to twelve point six million their subscription revenue increase two hundred and thirty one percent. So it's reaching a lot of subscribers but it still their overall base is still not Not massive in the way that you might expect some other streaming platforms if you think of streaming a lot of people think of youtube tv or who are net flex so this is still a very small player in the space like you said. It really focuses on sports so it is there. It has a lot of sports offerings. It also has forty three of the top fifty networks one hundred twelve channels so theoretically. It's for everyone but definitely for that. sports fanatic. And you're not to be interested in it. So the they mentioned launching a betting platform as well So like like.

But i don't know britney spears's instagram remains very very confounding an endo worthy. I can explain the billy beefing briefly which i also had see research on. But it's a former makeup artist of hers who i believe sometime earlier. This year told i believe page. Six that britney spears resolve is not responsible for the written content on her instagram. Because since the new york times hulu special there has been a lo- a lot of focus on her instagram and within that special they feed or some people who a give a lot of focus to her instagram.

Could you tell us a bit about what they do and why they're important to you. Okay so. I remember choosing hair on purpose. Because i love that. They're they're basis of their nonprofit is teaching young black and brown girls learn about their hair and had to have fun with their hair and or products they hair. We don't understand how important that is for like little black girls. Because i didn't. I didn't grow up learning how to carry by hair. The fact that there is a organization that kind of teaches in black and brown gross to manage their hair as opposed to like straightening in blow drying it conforming to how other people would want it to look. I wanted to go towards them. Because i wish i knew about them. When i was growing up. Sam dislike i would like to put them to the forefront. Because they're doing a really really great thing.

Thank you for having me. I'm excited to be here to learn with you in just being a little community with you for a little while so thank you before we get into it. I wanted to start with your bio on your website. Because i really love anger. Your bio says. I am gay. Born that way. I'm afro-caribbean black. I am a new american naturalized citizens. I am jewish. Believe that way. It's a lot too and i think it's a perfect segue for talking about your segment and i. I wonder if you could talk about an navigating. All of these identities that are so intersectional. What felt really essential for you in terms of storytelling for this project. While so many things I think being able just bring full motion to it. I think was probably most important for me You know. I think so. Often emotion as a black man is not something that we are allowed to show in certain spaces and places in ways and this was a love letter and a note and so many things to people so that that's full of emotion right like it's a a love letter to my daughter to let her know that you know all of this is ultimately for her. It's a love letter to my mother. Who inspired me to all of these things and these are deeply emotional things. I didn't expect my mother to to not be here with me here. I'm at at forty. I thought she'd still be alive. I didn't expect that and it's emotional to think about her inspiration getting into the space I never thought that. I have a daughter again as a gay man. That wasn't something that i grew up thinking. I'm just gonna have a kid one day you know. I thought about all the struggles that that lay there versus the happiness and potential of adding that. So yeah no. I mean i think it it. It was about emotion like being able to to to be sure that we are able to express his much true genuine emotion in life like the interview started the first section asking questions about my mom and i mean the first question that came out. I just started bawling. I was like. I didn't realize i was going to be so emotional about recounting the story. I've told my mom story. You know millions of times before but it. In this moment it meant something different it was A new emotional journey for me for me to go on. What would you say. Is this moment sort. The the reflection and synthesis of all of the things like all of the pieces of my life came to together. When i became a dad became a dad in november. Two thousand twenty officially are my foster daughter. We able to adopt her and so that was an exciting thing. But i think it was again. The timing of this right like i i got my foster became my daughter and then i think a week later i got nemo was like hey would you like to do the show with us On hulu and again it was all of this emotion like life is life for some reason was just all coming together and connecting In a short amount of time and so that that was it this moment of like i just my daughter from my daughter came into my life and all of a sudden. Now i get to to help. Tell a story of why. That's such an important thing. And how i connect all the dots from beginning to end. So that's i mean that's that's that's the moment for me as i talked about like this moment. That's so amazing. I think one of the things that i so enjoyed from your segment the sense of coziness and family and i think that a lot of that probably comes from the segment being shot in your home so i wonder if you talk to me about that space. The house. i actually bought three four years ago. I had just come out of a longterm relationship. I had decided. I was going to be single by a condo live on my own and then i bought a three bedroom house with a front porch swaying and our backyard. And i was like what am i doing. I was like i was here. I the single person single guy and just decided. I'm going to buy the and after i did that. Like all of these. My life just started to line up again. I met my current partner. Fiance three months after i bought the house. We officially didn't move in together. Because i was like. I i just i'm single. I need to be single for at least a year before we start dating. That was three months after bought the house in. And then you know maybe six months later. My foster daughter showed up. You know so. It was sort of like i bought this home and grew into it pretty quickly. And it's it's a beautiful space and i know i think our friends love coming over. I think even during the pandemic it's been a challenge Because folks are like wanna hang out with you all. We wanna come into space. We wanna come home because it is such only space. Oh my home is is Is a space. Where i always wanted to feel like. Everyone can be welcomed instrument. To and i think i got that from my mom like she was always just a the doors open for anyone if you need assistance or help or just wanna place to hang out and connect and find community And i think that's like number one for my house. Like i just want people to walk in the front door and feel like i'm home here so we we don't have like a no schule. It's up to you. Shool rights like so you come to the front door and and i often will say you know. Feel free to take your shoes off. you don't have to but i think people feel like home when they can take their shoes off. I mean you know and so that's the first thing for me. I think in in our home. We have lots of lots of pillows. Because i like to lie down on the floor a lot. I'd centers me And i encourage like my my daughter to do it sometimes to to take a moment and just kind of lie down and send herself on the floor it also has lots of reassuring or uplifting messages or i don't i didn't even i don't even know it's it's not something that i never. I never realized that i was so into. I walk into the room. And it's like there's a little silence as you can go the extra distance because it's never crowded or you know my partner likes to Buy me messages. That are are reflective and motivating to kind of say. Hey not remember your special remember your important. You can do this and similar messages. We've started putting in our in our daughter's room You know just you know Here lies a beautiful young woman. There's joy in your eyes like just sort of Affirming things actually. Which i've found that she likes to ask what they say. So i actually appreciate that. I hadn't thought about how that would translate to how she engages with them. I mean she's four years old. She just turned four two weeks ago but when she's always seen them she'll say what you know. What does that say. Or what does that say And i appreciate that. She has a desire to to learn. What the messages are. And i know that she remembers them because there is a painting. That's like going down our staircase and it has someone like giving the peace sign and so my partner in her every morning they kind of give a peace sign back to to the painting and and it's been interesting because she doesn't even if he's not there if she's on her own she kind of the moment and reflects on it. It's funny it makes me think it is tweet. I saw the other day. That was basically saying.

"Mike got noticed. Recently that the price of disney plus subscription is going up. That's right if you remember back in december. I know it seems like eons ago. Disney announced the plan to increase the monthly cost of the subscription. And i got that email a few days ago too. But the price would increase on march twenty sixth so disney plus alone will increase by one dollars going from six nine a month to seven ninety nine annual subscriptions will increase ten dollars from sixty nine nine to seventy nine nine thousand nine and if you get the disney plus hulu. Espn bundled like i do. It's increasing from twelve ninety nine monthly to thirteen ninety nine per month but the entertainment giant justified. The price increase based on its aggressive content. Plan if you remember back. In december when they announced the price increase they said gonna be developing ten new marvel series ten new star wars series and more than two dozen disney and pixar movies series and and then also be on that just recently disney announced more theatrical releases will come straight to the streaming service. The marvel film. Black widow starring scarlett johansson originally set to hit theaters. May seventh will.

Free Streaming Service Breaks Into Original Content

"Is streaming service out there. That's making moves as of late and if you don't mind watching a few ads here and there you don't have to pay for its content. Either that service is to be. Do you be i which was bought last year by fox for a cool four hundred and forty million. The sale brought around twenty thousand additional titles to the platform and marked. Fox's first foray into the streaming wars to these offerings range from tyler perry films to the nineteen ninety classic ghost so a bit of a mixed bag there as of this writing one of the most popular titles on the app was the two thousand adam sandler movie little nicky nineties. Kids rejoice when the sale of to fox was finalized last march company executives. Were clear they had no plans to produce original content. The verge reported at the time. Don't think of it. As a competitor disney plus netflix's apple tv plus or hulu verge wrote noting that all four of those platforms regularly stream their own content. Well how quickly. Things change bloomberg reported last week that to be is in talks with advertisers about funding yup original tv shows and movies. That didn't take long did it. The move comes after a record. Twenty twenty for the platform which saw usage numbers jumped fifty eight percent. Those growth numbers are pretty attractive to advertisers. To be will make three hundred million in ad revenue this fiscal year according to bloomberg and fox. Cfo steve tomsic said that revenue could grow to one billion dollars in coming years. The nudge for two to explore. Original content may have come from a close competitor. The roku channel which streams free movie shows and live news partnering with outside networks announced. The premiere of its first original series. This month roku got it start building software for smart. Tv's but his leaning into the success of its streaming service roku over fifty million active accounts by the end of twenty twenty according to deadline in the world of streaming services. Much attention is paid to. Well paid services like netflix and users of that platform repeatedly site the lack of ads as its most attractive feature according to emarketer with a free ad supported streaming market growing by leaps and bounds. The question is which of these. Two contenders will emerge victorious. Is there room for both online. Someone go get the popcorn

"So i know this and so none of you will see me but when i was preparing for today's episode with our guest osma akhmed. I put on one of my favorite pens. The pin is round and yellow and it has the words. Black disabled lives matter printed in bold text. These pens were made by the graphic designer. Jen white johnson who writes on her website quote my definition of mothering. An active resistance means to redesigned ablest visual culture the sole intention is to empower and activate change encouraging communities to engage in conversations about acceptance rooted. In how black neuro divergent children are valued and seen and quote kept returning to this quote because osma son is autistic with that. She's consistently finding ways to bring that life experience into her work with technology to get people to engage with identity and humanity in her segment on. Hulu osma speaks about her son's autism. And how does open her eyes to challenges around access. She defines herself in her own words. I am a mother. I am an engineer. I am a businesswoman. A do gooder an eternal optimist. And i'm definitely a risk taker. I am an immigrant. i am muslim. Yeah that's all i can think of. Osma brings all of these identities together in work with innovations including plum perfect. The diversity meter osma maintains her roots as a builder and seeks to make our world more simple equitable and accessible. Welcome to your attention. Please the companion podcast to the hulu series of the same name that introduces us to present day makers of black history. I'm your host kimberly. True a curator writer and co editor of the anthology black futures and today asthma akhmed. Needs your attention please. Oh i am so excited to talk to you today. Energies so infectious. I am excited to. I've been looking forward to this good. I'm so glad. Well let's just start at the start because i think that one of the more amazing things about this entire process is that i got to learn about you through a film which you created with hulu unless you start there. What was it like to work on that film. And also what was it like to see yourself represented in that way. First of all there is an amazing crew. It that made me look great. I usually don't like watching myself. But i loved watching this one because i felt like it really represented me. It didn't feel you know that uncomfortable feeling you have when you're watching yourself. I didn't feel that at all. This was authentically. Who i am and how i show up in the world and so that was great. Obviously an honor to be one of the twelve black voices represented and when i was approached to do this i said i just i wanted to tell a story about success but also about failure right about how you know. Life is messy and unpredictable. Sometimes and through all of that. There's hope and there is just beauty in the journey and there's growth answer for me. That was i wanted to tell. Really all of the the ways that we persevere as black women is black people living here as people in general and so for me it was just the way that manifested. I think manifested beautifully. If i may say so myself in the video was through the story of my son and his through the story of my career ups and downs. And i wanna talk to you of course about what you said about a story of success and failure but before we move forward you said that watching the video back. You really saw yourself. What were some of the elements that really made you feel like really emboldened and full version of yourself. The end of the video. When i was asked what success meant for me and i said it was both doing well in doing so the doing well is being compensated adequately for what i'm worth. We all know the statistics. Black woman i think right now on get paid seventy cents on the dollar and the second was doing good. Doing good is having an impact. Well beyond me right affecting lives will be on me. Positively in so that was to me that that ending just like he s. That's it right. That was how i. That's how i would want to end this. And so yeah that was it an also just talking about my life as an engineer and also as a business person. I'd like to think of myself. Or i describe myself as a business minded engineer or as technically minded business person. I'm both. I can speak the language of the people that built a product and also speak the language of people that take whatever product we're taking to market and so that's the role. I love to play and i think that came across in the video very well. It was both human and futuristic like the whole just it merged just humanity in also like technology and for me. I sit at the intersection of both. And so that was. That was what i loved about it the best. I can totally echo that. I feel like there's there's something interesting about the aesthetics of the future where sometimes it can feel really distant from reality it can feel like oh this is fantastic version of how we live in how we are but there was something about your film and especially your background. As an engineer that really brought a level of humanity and there was so much vulnerability in in your video. Which is why. I was really. I think why and such a good mood and so excited to talk to you today. Because i think we're often told that business people are engineers or people who work in stem or have a passion for stem. There's there's not room for like the of what it means to be creative as well and i wonder for you and your path how do you. How do you balance all of those things..

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

"What I would love and this is something that I wish I had growing up. Is those kids that grew up in the inner city who grew up in low income households that when they have a dream, they have an idea that they will have the resources that some other kids that are very privileged that they have and I an ideal world. Be. You know if that could be equal and so. I think that As we continue to learn, it's important for us to continue to spread the knowledge in our community spread that knowledge to make. Dad Become. Reality I think on my end I agree with you breezy because you know growing up, we had so many ideas and we had. Things you want to do in life and we did have people in our lives. That told us that we couldn't do what we could do, but the reason why they told us that is because they didn't have people in their lives. That showed that they could actually do certain things, so we can't really be mad at those people i. do think that it is important in my ideal world. All the kids and children and the youth will have resources or people. To be able to succeed in their dreams, their goals in their everyday life. I'm Kimberly drew and you're listening to your attention, please eight Hulu podcast with iheartradio. This is the final episode of Your Shit please. I'm full of so many emotions I am so full of gratitude for everyone who has listened to one or eight episodes of the series I am full of sadness, because this is our last episode y'all but I am also so full of gratitude. Of, all the episodes to be are less episode today we are joined by Coco and breezy to young women entrepreneurs who also happen to be dear friends of mine and I cannot wait to get. Today's conversation kicked off Coco and breezy have been on quite a journey living in Indiana. Tennessee and Minnesota all before landing in New York with big dreams of becoming entrepreneurs with some savings, they took a big leap and turn their love of eyewear into a flourishing business today, there eyewear brand, Coco and breezy has blown up with stars like Riyana Williams in Prince wearing their creations. I am such a lover of fashion, and I think that everything that we wear that. We put honors. People's tells a story about who we are in who we hope. Will See us as an a day to day basis I am so fortunate to have worn a pair of cocoa and breezy glasses I had my first pair for south by South West probably two or three years ago and I remember coordinating each and every one of the outfits that I wore for that week around the glasses because I wanted them to be the statement piece because there is a very very very. Very special energy that goes into each of the pairs that they have each of their frames is so full of life and a story and a narrative, and there is something almost cosmic, and like you're almost like a space jam level transformation that happens when you put the glasses on, because you know that you're standing in your power, or in your power and ways that may not have been accessible to you before. Like I said I think fashion is such an incredible portal into who we are, and I think every time that I get the opportunity to share space with going breezy. I learned just a little bit more about my friends. There's so much that they accomplished in such a short amount of time, and there's so much more ahead of the both of them. So if they could have your attention, please our guest today our final guests. Hobo. Greasy I'm coco in I'm breezy, and we are co founders of cocoa and breezy eyewear. We're also co founders of a real estate property called the Lurker, and we are deejays and producers, so let's start I talking about the video that you guys made for your attention. Please on, Hulu Can you talk about what the process was for making that video? If there are things that came up, that were surprising to even you guys. You are a retelling your story to the audience. Something, that was really important to us. was insists was a project for black history month. It was very important to have a team that could also be celebrated to create the Vision, and so on our end. WHO SUPPORT IT? We as founders as well, and they support it all of our businesses, so it was, it was actually unreal, because we've never worked with the company that understood our you know. We wanted it to be very sensitive when it comes to. Celebrating things that have to do with. Black history month or LGBTQ plus world, because we think it's important that the people from inside to tell a story all the way out, and it was cool that we ended up. Shooting at our property called the Lorca. They included are I wear in a gift. Like Marketing Promo for their customers in the viewers were watching the season, which is really exciting, and we also got to score and curate the music for our episode, and let alone be in episode in share. Our story love to hear that I. Wonder If guys could talk to me and you already started to hint on in terms of personal style you guys have. Always in all the years that we've known each other been so distinct in the ways, in which you present yourselves like in truly. Oh fashion! and I wonder if you could talk about your style evolution as its change from childhood to the present day. Our style has evolved so much. I mean we always say that we evolve every couple of years and the way our style evolves is. We evolve. Our personal style based on how evolve as women and I think that's very interesting and one big time that we were trying to grow as people. We had this time where I thought. You Know Breezy Ni-. We hid behind our hair. We hid behind our sunglasses when we first moved to New York the first year. No one saw is we always just were glasses and covered. Our is in, so there was a point in our lives we we kinda felt. Lonely insecure and people who only know us from our glasses, our hair in our clothing. And we only knew ourselves for the material that was sitting on our body. So one thing we did was. We were like in order for us to grow needed. Take away something that we that we love. We ended up shaving our hair and we shaved all of our hair off and our hair with us you know, but helped us grow into a new path in our lives because I always feel like with evolution. When you take away something that you love you, have this new growth within yourself. And during that timeframe we actually slow down with wear makeup as well because we felt like we were covering up all the scars. And we didn't want people to see low scarfs, and we were covering ourselves up again with the makeup with the hair, covering our faces with the big clothing. Then once we shaved their heads. You know, stop wearing makeup We actually, and then we actually slow down wearing glasses, and we have to look people in there is. They helped us evolve with women in so now every day every year. The evolutions not only with our style, but it's with our sal within ourselves as people in his women. So I think that like cocoa, said we, once we start to grow within ourselves spiritually in coming into our womanhood. We realized that we were allowing that trauma. That childhood trauma of being bullied. It was really rolling over until adult life, and once we actually pinpointed, were those phillies were stemming from, and we felt that it was stemming from billing being bullied. We started till you know,.

"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 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.

"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..

"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 Shell 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. 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. I 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. 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 Fred, astaire's 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 dentures in our neighborhood that you guys don't know about the. The help cultivate our movement in such a way that it's you know. Become 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. You know in that picture so with incredible. spoken word, artists. Beano are calling me books. Columbia number name 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. 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. 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. 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. I think we've been really.

"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.

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.

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.

"He's like to I don't know if it was the Hulu one or the Netflix ones, the Hulu, Hulu one. Yeah. He told the guy he's like, I'm not going to get put in jail, and that is like an example of complete white privilege complete where you are just like a piece of shit that like never thinks that the law is going to get you or. That you are going to be put in jail for your actions and continues to like just lie to people, and like not that their consequences and think that you know, money will get you out of anything. Yeah. I mean, it broke my I was like I was tearing up watching the the woman in the net. Flicks won the Bahamas. Hud, her and her team, you know, a ton of of native people of the I guess the main island of the Bahamas. They had worked twenty four hours to make food for the event. None of them saw a God damn dime. Nor did any of the workers who set up that tense the setup whatever could be set up. They worked for weeks. None of them saw any money. They were expecting money to come in. Like there were so hopeful that something like this would be returning to the island and providing jobs and stability like it was fucking heartbreakingly. I pray that because these documentaries are out now on Netflix, Hulu that that, you know, there is a a massive campaign to raise money for them in some way, there is to talk about that. Okay. Great. So there's a gofundme me that exists that helps these the caterer and the people that worked on the island recoup some of the money. Great because they she had to pay people from her life savings to work around the clock. Even though she never saw a dime for everything that she was doing during this festival. And that's I mean you and like for people, you know, the Bahamian people it's like these white people come in. And they make all these promises. Fuck everyone, and then leave like cool, it's ridiculous leaving a footprint lake. Lake an energetic footprint in a place. Like that like even the woman the sweet woman who who had made all the food. She was like, I don't even wanna talk about it anymore at love, the they they hurt me. Oh, changed me. They hurt me. And I all like for people to do that so carelessly. Oh my God. They actually she got one hundred forty five thousand dollars day. God that is I dissociate whoever whoever started that. I was thinking I'm like that better. Fucking like, that's the thing. Dude, say at once I'll say it again. That's the thing with these documentaries. This shit is so powerful. No. I mean, I I've probably said this on the podcast, but Blackfish change the fucking brain, everything everything this changes, the gay it exposes people that are doing shit like this it kind of puts a mere to us to make us think about, you know, trusting everything we see on social media like what foam means and then. Also to to help remedy the situation and give opportunities for that too. For people that have been screwed over. I mean, it's such a beautiful type R Kelly documentary too. I just feel like, you know, just pulling the veil. Yes. And like making making it really public about what is actually happening. Yeah. Honestly, it was interesting though to with. I was listening to Joe Rogan and just like a clip just Joe so funny. He's like literally changes his opinions on everything every day. Very hard to understand. But that's what people are still horseback. But he was saying he's like, you know, people are talking about the jar ruled thing, which is awesome. But he's like what about the Catholic church?.
