"Internally, working on a movie, trying to find a director right now talking to different directors to shoot and at an adaptation of this movie perfect strangers. And I'm really excited about that. And on the producing side, working with jaboukie, who I think is just immensely talented on his show for HBO. So we're developing that right now and we'll see, but and then project greenlight. That's probably the next thing that's going to be up. We just finished that season, the director who won is editing her film. So we'll see when that gets released. But they're just little things here and there that we've been working on. And you have a record label, right? Yes. Yes, yes, on the record label called radio. We should call it an audio everywhere company. In addition to being a label, we do music supervision so they do the music supervision for rap shit, P valley, lots of shows that the Sex and the City spin off and just like that. And just like that, all these different shows. We have an incredible team there and been a management company called creative. But those are all under the hooray umbrella. And this is for people spelling along at home. Gotta love it. So you know it's my company. How's it going? It's great. I love it. Last two things just briefly, because you're now part of the HBO Max family with rap shit. I just have to ask some curious what your take is. Obviously, it's an interesting situation. They're dealing with with creators. And network consideration is just all of that. What do you have any thoughts on that? In terms of the consolidation of everything every time. Well, not even just the consolidation, but I guess we're seeing now some back and forth about some projects that are disappearing off the map. Yeah, I do think it comes down to that in these changes. I think anytime that you have a merger and you have new leadership decisions that are going to be made that seem to be for the best of the company, I think in this case, there's a very clear mandate that they want to save billions of dollars and that is going to involve some painful decisions. I can't say that I personally understand them and I'm sure as the creators specifically, the directors of batgirl and the cast involved in that. That's got to be devastating to be kind of like the first to be cut in a social experiment. It seems or a business experiment. But yeah, I'm just curious to see where it goes. I love the staff that I work with. I think there's some incredibly smart people that work on the max team. I have not met the discovery team, yet I haven't met. Zaz laugh yet. I've heard so much. I read so much. But yeah, I'm just curious to see what's gonna happen. Either way, I'm gonna create. Yeah, right, right. And I guess the final question at the place I thought we could end is, in addition to the stuff that you are doing yourself, I think it feels like one of the maybe greatest legacies, if not the greatest legacy in the long run, could be the fact that you've given that opportunity a foot in the door

"But also you're getting great feedback from not only critics of all backgrounds and audiences of all backgrounds. But you're getting people like Regina King and Kerry Washington wanting to come work with you. You getting Emmy nominations where that was not always a particularly diverse group of nominees that were coming out of there. So I guess just as things were evolving with this, was it just I know it was actually overall in a pretty short time frame that all of this has happened. Did you ever have time to kind of step back and process what was going on? This year is like really my first time being able to process everything that's happened. And with the show ending, you know, obviously you get to have a little retrospective moment and reflect about everything that we've all accomplished since then. You know, we have a group chat with some of the cast and we'll reminisce and things like that. But for the most part, during that time, it was really just go, go, go, and there's such a fear that you won't be able to do this again, that you kind of just keep your head down and do the work. And of course, the moments when we were acknowledged for Emmys and when we'd be celebrated and referenced in certain ways, all those moments are cool in the moment, but for me, I just operate with, okay, let's go go go, let's keep trying to make it better 'cause you never know, this could be over tomorrow, something could change. And whether it's the looming writer strikes that would pause certain things. And obviously COVID and all those things that always just felt like, oh no, is this going to go away? And this year is the first time that I've been like, oh my gosh, so much has happened. And it's been, it's been ten years. And insecure ended the when I first started awkward by ten years after I first started awkward black girl, which was like, wow, this has been such a long journey, but not that long. And I feel like I'm just getting started. So if I was just thinking of a crazy hypothetical, but I'm curious what your take on this would be. So you're an old lady, many, many years from now, and you sit down on an airplane and some young punk kid sits down next to you. And says, oh, you're Issa Rae. I know that among many other great things you did insecure. I've heard, but I haven't seen it.

"I can tell you what isn't going to help. The reaction of a prominent Democrat, like representative Ruben gallego, he's a Democrat from Arizona. Very prolific tweeter loves to get on Twitter and sling some mud. Congressman Daryl Issa, California congressman out here on the West Coast, Republican, tweeted out the need and the interesting that Americans have to pray to lean into prayer, to pray for the families to pray for the community to pray for the country. Here's what a U.S. congressman tweeted F your prayers. And no, he didn't say F they haven't worked for the last 20 mass shootings. How about passing laws that will stop these killings?

Dinesh Finally Shares His Thoughts on Will Smith

"Okay, I'm finally going to do a segment, although I assure you a brief segment on Will Smith. When this first happened, this business with Chris Rock and Will Smith. I was like, this is silly. I'm not even going to cover this. I'm not going to say a word about it. And I wasn't going to. And then I see on television, a woman named professor ESA, oh, wait a second, Issa, Issa and nefertari, ohlin. And this is the woman she is quote the Professor of African and Diaspora literature at New York's hunter college. So she's on TV. And she says that Will Smith slap on Chris Rock was quote triggered by 400 years of black erasure and black silencing. This was like too good to be true, so I had to fish out, I had to go not just based on a clip by an article that she's written. This woman in The Hollywood Reporter and of course it has all the usual circumambulatory nonsense. We black folk often feel we are near drowning as we remain locked in a system that marginalizes us. So let's pause to think about this, right? She's describing why one black man slapped another black man and what are we getting a recitation that's very typical recycled tedious narrative about the bad old days of the past? Now she does go on to say things like Chris Rock should never ever have let that joke come out of his mouth. So she's giving some justification, I guess, for Will Smith, then she goes, well, Will Smith shouldn't really have slapped him. And if he slapped him on the subway or someplace else, we really wouldn't stand for it. Then she goes on to give us sort of a gender twist on this quote. She goes, in his sudden decision to rise and approach Chris, the patriarchies compulsory performance of strong manhood, so she is now faulting Chris. She's now faulting Will Smith for engaging in patriarchal conduct.

"Just like making stuff and putting it out there and the low expectations of people. You know, the ingenuity of just trying something and seeing how it works now because I have a name, there is a certain standard that's expected and sometimes I wish I could erase that. You know, maybe I'll come up with a pen name or something. I don't know. But I do miss just being able to create stuff online and put it out there to see what happens. Well, you've mentioned that you're working on the series with city girls. What can you tell us about it any big updates you can share? Yeah, I mean, we just wrapped the show, and I'm just really excited to set in the indie music world. And it's a completely different world. And a very different story of still friendship but trying to make it an industry that doesn't see it for you. So in some ways, they're parallels to my own journey, but the music world is so different and to a state and crazy. I'm learning myself. Did you worry once insecure raft of weather, you would find love again with a show like could you feel the same way about something? A little bit less when I was writing this show because I was still shooting insecure, but after rapping insecure and you know crying with Yvonne Jane and apprentice in the crew, I was just like, damn. I wonder if I ever feel like this again. And it's just different. I'm very, very hands on, but I'm not on camera and I already see that there's just a different dynamic and it really excites me to see the actors of that show bonding and hopefully, you know, their experience will be what ours was. They'll have a rich experience. But I don't know what kind of experience I have that comes close to that have been secured. That's a lesson that I've learned. No show is going to be like insecure. I'll be chasing that feeling, but I know what ingredients make for a positive working experience. And I can at least strive to that. Yeah. Yeah. But you also have a 5 year overall deal with WarnerMedia. You have an audio company slash record label, multiple cafes, a hair care brand. Is it safe to say Issa is building an empire and is there a goal that unites all of these endeavors? That's an excellent question that I'm going to ask myself in my yearly reflection. And dead serious that's something that just yesterday I was like, what am I doing? Hey, hey, girl, what are you doing? What do you want? Listen, it's all I think about with myself on a daily basis. What are you doing? Yeah, and I think it's important to ask yourself if you're you want those things and how badly you want those things from year to year and to be honest with yourself about it. So the answer is, I don't know yet. I'm very much enjoying what I'm doing, but I think thinking about the bigger picture and how long I want to do all of this incidentally important. How do you help people write about or talk about this show in 20 maybe 30 years? What is a dream quote from someone who revisits your work in say the LA times or something? I mean, it's twofold. I want people to say, you know, this is my favorite show. And that this show is, you know, a part of their favorite memories. And also that it inspired them to create their own show, their own book. Inspired them, so just write in general. That is cool to me. I have no doubt that that will happen. But I have to ask, you're familiar with Hollywood. And the obsession with reboots and revivals is there a world in which you would ever revisit these characters in like, say, ten, 15 years. In a reboot form, I don't think so. I've been saying a strong note to movies and all that. And I love leaving things as they are. It's kind of a legacy. But as of a reunion without a doubt, I want to see everybody again. I want to end just like that of insecure. Now you do not. No, you do not Ivan. Please. I do. It just ended. You did not want that. And I don't. It's a duck to this to me. You.

"Now that you've made it and have a seat at the table, what would you say has changed about meetings with Hollywood executives? Just more of a willingness to make what I want to make to buy what I'm pitching on the downside. I love constructive feedback. I love, you know, really smart executives. And I have found that the more successful people think you are the more scared or hesitant they are to criticize your work. Yeah. And I hope that people that I work with my creative partners in the future are never scared to be like, hey, this ain't it or let's think about trying to develop this a bit more. And I've seen that happen and I've almost had to beg to be like, no, tell me this is trash and tell me to do better. I'm happy to. You gotta keep prentice on speed dial. I'm sure he will remain that person for you. Telling like it is busy. He's got a thousand projects. But yes, I definitely have. I've definitely hit him up even for this new show. Hey, you want to come on board? You want to come direct something real quick? You want to. And he's like, I just finished working with you. Please. Are you finding that insecure has moved the needle in terms of showing Hollywood executives? How valuable these stories are? Are you still being advised to add more white characters to the next projects you have going on? Definitely not. Yes. Yeah, I have seen how it has moved the needle. I've seen, you know, how it is influenced other studios, to green light, certain projects, and I am proud of that, you know, in the same way that the shows that came before me. I know very well that there's no insecure without shonda and scandal. I know, you know, that possibly there's no insecure without even girls, you know? That's stuff like that isn't lost on me. And so I see how Hollywood almost needs permission to be like does this work out? All right, okay, then we can take a chance on this, but I definitely credit the shonda movement. Thank you, shonda. Thank you Sean. Well, another part of the show's legacy that many have reflected on, including our own paper, is the way the show has sort of rehab the image of south Los Angeles by really showcasing its beauty and depth. And in the end, ESA is living with Lawrence in a beautiful home in la Mart park. What did you want to say with that detail? I think that was more just my own dream. That was me putting my own utopia in Isa's, you know, final journey. And yeah, I live where I grew up. And I'm happy to live here. You know, I'm being a kid right in my bike through my neighborhood and being like, I want to live here when I grow up. I want to come back and to be able to do that is such a blessing and blows my mind, even now when I walk, I walk past my childhood home. Dang, this is crazy. That I was actually able to do that and to manifest that. And, you know, I wanted that for Easter D two. We both care about LA in our community so much. That send me my happy ending is her happy ending. Or happy start, I should say. Happy start. I like that. There's this sweet moment in the finale where Issa is driving around and seeing all the people and places she used to frequent. And there's the moment where she drives by the dunes complex and a dad is taking his daughter's photo outside. And I remember talking to prentice ahead of the premiere, we shot him outside the dunes and he was saying how they had to stop because fans of the show were parked out there trying to take photos in front of it. Did he cross your mind that something like this would happen when you were scouting locations for the show that it would bring people out to see the community in this way? Absolutely not. And that was such a pleasant surprise that people have made the dunes like a Hollywood landmark. You know, that was that Yoda by the way taking a picture of his daughter. We had to send him out properly as a lot of show that he still banging on the block. It's so cool. I actually just, I went to trade of Joe's a couple months ago and my cashier was like, girl, you the reason is always traffic in front of my street. And I was like, what? She was like, yeah, I live by the dunes. And I was like, what? Oh, that's so, I'm sorry. And she was like, yeah, people stay taking pictures in front of it. And so I was like, okay, my bad. And then I was like, I want to drive to see myself. You know, I get tags and photos every single day with people taking pictures in front of it. But I wanted to just go drive by myself to see if people were doing it. And sure enough, they were just people outside and you know those low key little mind. Of people just, you know, gather opposing in front of the dunes. And I was like, damn, poor residents. And I took my own video of them posing. I was looking busted. People were like, why didn't you get out? Because I was looking busted and you know people were gonna be like, hey, can we get a picture? Or they're gonna be like, excuse me, can't get off the waist so I could take a picture of the doom. So I don't know what's that. But one day I'll go back. Heavily made up. And happened to show up. How do you feel about changing the fabric of the community in that way? Like, as you said, making Hollywood landmarks out of these spaces and maybe changing them forever. If you meet in the sense that it's on people's radars in a way that makes it culturally significant to black people, I'm very proud. If you meet in the sense that now people want to move here and live here that aren't necessarily made up of the fabrics of this community that I have regrets, you know, I've definitely gotten blames for the influx of tech Bros and Hollywood communities wanting to move here in that way. I'm like, oh, damn. That was not the intention. I just wanted to showcase how beautiful our neighborhoods are. But I do love that at least the show will be a time capsule of the fact that these were very black neighborhoods and proud black neighborhoods. Yeah. Well, from the beginning of your career, you wore every creative hat. You're the star of the writer, the creator, the director, in the 5 years since making this show in the more traditional TV space. Is there one thing you miss about the sort of homegrown style of making content? Yeah, definitely the rawness. I still kind of miss that of just, you know, as much as I do love to collaborate, and I love the process of development, part of me still misses.

"Was there anything that you wish could have made it into the finale that didn't? In the penultimate, one thing that, you know, I kicked myself over, you mentioned in Tasha Rothwell, who is brilliant and so is Neil Brown junior and we had a setting with Kelly and Chad in the same room and we recorded something, but it didn't fit, but to not have like a moment with the two of them is something that I will be kicking myself over for a while. Well, looking back on the last decade or so, that line when Issa says I just want to fast forward to the part of my life where everything is okay. I mean, that felt like it came straight out of my internal monologue. But is that a thought you had often back then or even still now? How much are you literally seeing yourself in talking to yourself in the scene like that? Absolutely had that thought back then, as a matter of fact, that is my line. I recall saying that in my colleagues days in my New York days, very broke New York days trying to figure things out with things going wrong and just being like, my God, can I just fast forward to the part where everything's cool and I know what I'm doing and I haven't had that thought in a very long time, but I definitely, you know, still pour over decisions that I'm making and think about the outcomes and consequences of the things that I'm doing. And like I said, sometimes that comes from a place of fear and comes from a place of reservation that where I don't necessarily want to be, you know, sometimes I want to make the dumb decision and see where that takes me, but that feeling that you're running out of time and that you can't afford to make these mistakes or can't afford to take these particular detours, increases as you get older unless you go through a midlife crisis and you're like, but I haven't reached that point yet. I think I've reached that point. I mean, you've come a long way, goes without saying since the awkward black girl web series days. How would you describe what it's been like navigating your rise? I mean, people tend to mythologize my journey and I think up until recently, you know, I was so in it that I didn't really I didn't really realize, you know, how long it's been how far it's been, yeah, this ten year anniversary about her black girl and thinking about even I was working with I'm working on a new show called rap with the show runner who came from insecure, but before insecure we worked on one of our very first pilots and you know we were having a conversation on set and she was just kind of reliving her assistant days of just like, oh my gosh, the whole thing. Why don't people punch the description this way? Like I remember when we had to hand hole punches and I was like, what the? And I was just like, damn, you really were just like, you're shoveling this show now and you were just hole punching our scripts, you know, 5 to 6 years ago. I guess through her and just dawned on me, you know, how far we've kind of all come and man it forced me to take a step back and just be like, oh man, I remember when I was doing this and wasn't sure what my path was going to be or how this was going to end up. I remember, you know, walking a couple blocks down while we were shooting the pilot after hers and getting the phone call from HBO that they weren't going to move forward on the script that leery and I hit submitted and that was the last opportunity for him to still be a part of it. And just, you know, getting that phone call walking offset to the side of the road and just crying. What the am.

"Well, now that we've talked about the real love story of this series, let's talk about Issa and Lawrence now. I have to tell you, I really did want them to get back together, but I also realize that they weren't good for each other up until that point, where you conflicted about having them get back together. Hell, yes, I was conflicted. At the beginning of the season, to be honest, you know, it goes back to when season four episode 8 aired. I was thrilled that people loved it but I had this, oh my God, at the pit of my stomach, I was like, oh my God, people are so happy for them and they have no idea what's coming. We are about to devastate this. Like with this new thing I'm working on. It's me creating happiness for myself. I think. I like you like this. Like what? Like this is new. Keep it up. It's a good look. Okay, all right. And I didn't realize how exciting people would be to see ESM orange reunite. And even me, I was like, oh man, this did end up being, you know, a really beautiful episode. Thank you Natasha Rothwell. So he got a baby, absolutely not. And thinking about, you know, just my own feelings and putting myself in her shoes and being protective of her, I thought that, you know, she made the right decision. And I still stand by the fact that she made the right decision to break up with him. I just had to tell you. So, this means you're getting back with her. No. No. I told you, I want to be with you. But you're having a baby with someone else. But I didn't plan this. I don't. I don't want this to happen. And, you know, we had different endings in mind and as the season progressed, and I became ECD. You know, it's one thing to write for her and then to become her. You know, I found myself missing him and I found that in a sense we were denying Issa her happiness. You know, one of our writers, Laura Kittel was just like, you know, with that episode, we basically said that they're soul mates. And to deny Issa her soulmate is, in a sense, denying her her happiness. And I think they needed that time. To grow apart, Lawrence for sure needed that time to reconcile his relationship with canola and to see the blessing that Elijah was in his life and to grow on his own. And I think separately, as they had done before, they became ready for one another and I think so much of the themes of the last couple of seasons have been that happiness is a choice. And Issa daring to be happy with Lawrence felt fitting to me. But it was a journey. We both went on journeys. Happy birthday. Thank you. Hey, John. Oh, is this for me? He wanted to decorate. That right there says Issa. Doesn't. It could. Thanks, John. There we go. Was there the scenario where she ends up with Nathan? There was a scenario where she ended up with Nathan and then there was a scenario where she came home and you heard a voice that you didn't know who it was. That would have killed me not knowing. I would have been like, no, I need to know. Yeah. Well, as someone who spends the moments after each episode curled up with a Twitter comments about it, people have intense feelings about their relationship as I'm sure you know all too well. Has it surprised you? How strongly people feel about this dynamic? I mean, yeah, it's surprises me, but it doesn't surprise me. People project so much of their own feelings onto these characters, which is part of what makes the show what it is. And I, you know, princess and I and the writers have discussed at length, you know, how much we know people are going to have so much to say about this decisions and you know, they always have, but at the end of the day, if you went with best for these characters, these characters have chosen what's best for themselves and you can only be happy for them. Well, to get back to your point about Isa choosing to be happy and daring to be happy. Her ending is really hopeful, you know? She's experiencing success in her career, her friendships, her love life. She's feeling better about herself worth.

"issa" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times

"Film. Mark, I have to say that today's episode is really bittersweet for me. On the one hand, I'm thrilled to have had a chance to speak to Issa Rae, fresh off the heels of the insecure finale. And ask her all my burning questions about alternate endings and surprise moments, but I'm so sad because I can't believe it's really over. You know, it's funny I am not as dedicated to watch her as you are, but it's funny, you know, every week when there's a new episode like my Twitter feed just goes nuts and I like sort of like ambient follow along with the conversations where I feel like I sort of know something about the show. I know that I believe I'm not supposed to like Lawrence. And then I'm very upset with him for the way that he behaved at the going away party. And I mean, the show, it feels like it's not only just a cultural phenomenon but these feel like characters that have become like Friends for people. No, totally. And first, let me just say, if you have those feelings about Lawrence, now you need to watch the finale. And for those that haven't this episode of the podcast has some spoilers, so go watch the finale and bookmark this conversation for later. But yes, to your point, the conversation around the show was such a fundamental part of the experience of it. And I don't think it's an understatement to say the show leaves behind a legacy with its bold and authentic storytelling, a flawed characters and the sometimes frustrating subtleties of adulthood. We all watched this character grow up and become this self fulfilled woman with career ambitions and meaningful relationships, messy relationships. So to kick off this conversation, I asked Issa about what it felt like to say goodbye to Isa D in some ways. I feel like I'm not saying goodbye because she's so much of me. Especially with this last season, we have merged in so many ways. But beyond that, like her friends and her world and her love life was really just fun to play out in a lot of the decisions that she made, however messy. I got to play out in the stories that we got to tell. And in my own life, I tend to be a bit more reserved with my choices. I love chaos, but I don't give to act on that chaos, a lot. And so I would miss that point. That's incredible. Y'all are incredible. Tonight, the only focusing on you having fun and nothing else. Look at you, quote, by quote. What's happening? Well, there's so much to talk about with that finale, but first I have to ask, how did you land on using birthdays as the device to sort of structure the episode? I was really excited coming up with that just thinking about how we wanted to ship time and obviously thinking about the pilot episode. We're introduced to Isa on her 29th birthday. And this season in particular is about growth. And so to be able to showcase that through this device, was exciting to me. In addition to just Tapping into my own personal life and my friendships, you know, as we've grown older, you know, friends from high school and almost the only guarantee that we will kick it is on each other's birthdays and there's a sadness surrounding that. It's just like, damn, we used to just congregate at any moment. Any Friday, that was guaranteed. And then you're kind of relegated to I got shot birthday girl. You know, I'm a show up for that. And so to watch you say Molly's friendship kind of play out through that kind of sad kind of tragedy that I wanted to explore. Hello. Happy birthday. Thank you. I miss you so much. Me too. What went into the decision to end with that phone call between Molly and Issa instead of say Isa and Lawrence or something? I mean, we've said it from this is a story about you send Molly. It's their love story, and that I think is Issa's most important relationship. We have seen that relationship go through so many ups and downs and watch them be codependent, watch them rely on each other. Watch them grow each other. And I think Issa and Molly have helped each other to become the women that they are. They have seen each other through so much. And so that call from Molly onis birthday is the call that she'd been looking forward to. Yes, Lawrence has finally made birthday plans. But Molly calling Issa on her birthday and hearing from her is the best present. One moment that really got to me, especially considering the sort of ups and downs of their relationships is obviously when Issa is helping Molly with her wedding dress and Molly sort of turns to herns as thank you. Thank you so much for everything. Of course. There's no way you want to get out there just by yourself. Not for. Everything. Just for being you. I loving me. While I was me, how did you decide where where and when they would share that moment? That was something that we decided from the beginning of breaking the season. That was a scene that I visualized in my mind from jump as the way to end this series. That was the only constant. Because we just, you know, like, there's just something about ending the series on that declaration from Molly and showing how much Issa has evolved as a friend, you know, too Motley. I think that's something that we've watched this season is why they are good friends for each other. And Molly has been through so much and so much of her is one of this picturesque wedding to settle down with her husband, but to have her friend by her side and to see her through that when it almost didn't happen means so much to her and that was such a touching moment to shoot. I don't know where life is going to take us, but I just know that as long as you're around, I will be okay. We'll have more of Yvonne's conversation with Issa Rae after this break.

"issa" Discussed on Therapy for Black Girls

"So you know the thing that we the thing that we have to get back to Nathan. The thing that we have not seen, though, is any real conversation about what his treatment has looked like. So he told Ethan, I don't remember what the time frame was of how long before he told isa he had gotten that diagnosis. But we don't know anything about like, is he working with the therapist? Is he on medication? And we also, at least at this point, I think can kind of be certain or at least a good guess that Issa may be the only one and maybe Andrew who we really haven't seen or have not seen at all this season are the only ones who know about this diagnosis. And so, you know, we hear Nathan say like I want people to see me for who I am now, not who I was then. But he actually hasn't told his cousin in his wife about what is happening, right? And so he hasn't informed them. And I think that's because he doesn't see them the way they are now. What do you mean? Ironically enough. They kicked you out of the house. And you won't be vulnerable enough to be like, hey, this is what was going on at that time. I don't know that he feels like they fostered a sense that a space that allows him to be vulnerable either. Yeah. So I guess I'm just like, well, you want them to see you differently, but you know, there's really been no new influent. I mean, isa didn't even know that these people lived here. And they visited. So, that means that you have not been visiting with him. And certainly not visiting with him in a way that you talk about it. And maybe they were avoiding him as much as he was avoiding them or what have you because, you know, all this lovely water on the fridge? Yeah. You make a good point there. Yeah, and it seems like again what Nathan thinks he's communicating is not actually what's being communicated because they're not actually talking. So in my mind, it feels like maybe he invited the cousin and his wife to this barbecue or whatever to show that he's reliable now, right? Like I got my stuff together. And so now they will just see that I'm different and not flaky, quote unquote, like I was when I live with them. So is there anything else that we haven't covered on this idea of not being able to change how other people perceive us? Because Nathan, I think says that a couple of times in this episode and Issa agrees. Like this idea that you might be a new person, but other people might not see you that way. Or they're a suggestions you have around how to reconcile this past you with this present you. Honestly, the part where Issa said about waiting for the other shoe to drop. I was just like, if that ain't your past self in your current self yelling, one of the Spider-Man meme. Hard..

"And I think that when we are not intentional, we fall back into patterns of communication that may be not have served us well in the past, but certainly are the patterns of communication in which we have been taught we're supposed to be in when we are looking for a specific type of situation. So I think it's both them, they didn't know how to pivot and they didn't know how to say it to the other and whether or not the other would be receptive to the pivot that they were wanting to make. Yeah, I mean, because clearly, you know, isa was ready to invite, you know, more than just a friendship when she asked him to spend the night, but there had been no communication. So we see him come over expecting kind of just show up as in the front space. And she is, you know, of course, now open some more. Now, I do think though it is also important to think about given how we saw Nathan behave before with just the ghosting, I would imagine that him being gone that next morning woke that back up for Issa. Like, oh God, here we go again. But I'm wondering, you know, how could Nathan have supported Issa from a friendship angle when she clearly was upset that night?.

"I mean, well, let's set the stage, right? Let's set the stage. So the episode opens with the beach event, right? So this is what Nathan and isa of course had talked about earlier in the season that he wanted to do some kind of customer appreciation thing maybe for the customers from the barbershop. And so we see them at the beach, him and his friends, or the fellow barbers, putting on their sunscreen, which actually was only lotion. So the lamb store pretty immediately. So that's our setting. And so he and the friends are setting up and then we see Issa and Mali and Kelly show up a little later, and it is very clear that Issa and Nathan have not talked since a week ago, which so we could go with the crying incident where she asked him to spend the night and they were kissing and she ended up crying in his mouth. So what we see is that there is this awkwardness, right? So very much a callback to awkward black girl and early seasons of insecure like Issa I feel like his continue to be at different levels of awkward, but I feel like this was like peak awkward this week. Yeah, it was physically painful to watch. I'm like, come on girl spit it out. Oh, please don't say that. Please. It was very painful to watch. So what are you kind of make of the fact that clearly they have not talked in this week and you know, she just kind of shows up at this event? Honestly, I just like, okay. Are we being passive here? Are we wanting to have the conversation? And there was this desire for her to have the conversation. And I mean, you saw it. I read, this is the continuing game. Because I.

Us born some were born in afghanistan but these children and their parents all were part of earlier. Resettlements of people that have helped us early in the war And they they were back as many people do go for this summer The state department did not know where they were. We were able to get in touch with them through of all things Facebook and then using whatsapp and And little by little we were able to inform the state department where they were and with dod assistance and much more dod than state department Began the extraction process. But it is these people are are isolated. they're scared. The misinformation abounds but also In the case of every one of these families Telethon fighters came to the door asking questions and doing essentially a sense of who are you and what are you doing And coming through the house and you can imagine being Eleven or twelve year old girl And having a tele bound fighter wanting to know everything about you in hoping that your Your native tongue was good enough that they wouldn't realize that you've been living in america for most or all of your life and that's that's some of the trauma that these kids are facing in their families The taliban have made it clear.

I think it's not black and white and it's not all or nothing and you are entitled to cheek the space that you need to rebuild yourself and if that means you revisit the friendship in a few weeks a few months whatever. The case may be if they're really that person to you they'll be open with open arms to accepting the friendship back to the place. It is you you have to.

Is it now not clear to everyone that the january the six quote unquote commission is just a political sham. It is a political sham. It's going to be bipartisan but without a disagreement at the start as to any aspect of it because she has managed to pick people who already agree with her at least she believes they do and Starting of course with liz cheney. She's got somebody who Has basically said that the republican party and anyone who said that there were irregularities in arizona or pennsylvania are inherently un-american and likens us to the people on the wrong side of the civil war The reality is our constitutional obligations were met. She chose to go and other way but nancy. Pelosi wants to turn all of that into a january six once in a millenium Sort of a claim And she's going to run that through with this sham commission.

Karaites: Bible Only, Please with Shawn Lichaa

"Is someone that we've wanted to have on the podcast for a long time. But we're trying to figure out the right place and we realized that we were starting this series on the bible. We thought this is the right place to have a discussion with somebody who is a leading voice within the community. That's a group of jews that basically it doesn't accept one of the key pillars of rabbinic judaism. Which is that at mount sinai when moses was given what we call the torah by god the written torah moses was also given an oral torah at the same time by god and that oral torah was preserved for hundreds and hundreds of years until some period after the destruction of the second temple when it was written down initially as the mishna and then over time in additional ways as what we call the talmud and the carrots represent a group of jews. That didn't believe that there was an oral tradition. Given at mount sinai that was if basically equal magnitude as the written torah in the bible that the written torah their written bible has a much more significant. Or perhaps i should say supreme significance in what we understand judaism to be what we understand god to one of the jews etc. The percentage of jews. That are carrots has waxed and waned over the course of the last two thousand years of jewish history. It was much much bigger in the middle ages. And of course here in america when we talk about the various groups of jews that there are people think about you know the nominations orthodox conservative reform reconstructionist renewal but often. Don't really think about carrots largely. Because it's a small community here in america and our guest today is working to preserve its traditions and make them available for study or consideration more widely. We're really excited to have this conversation today. With lisa who a leading voice in the carrot community he is a board member of the carrot juice of america and founder of the carrot. Press in the a press self-description they say our mission is simple. When kerry literature ceased to be commonly available the jewish world lost a tremendous amount of scholarship exegesis in diversity. Students have jewish theology and history lost access to a rich heritage and carrots themselves. Were no longer. The masters of their own intellectual heritage. The karaoke press aims to change all this and they publish a combination of translations of older care a literature as well as more contemporary ratings. Sean leash himself is the founder of a blue thread a jewish blog with a threat of right throughout and he speaks widely about carrot judaism at venues across america including synagogues jewish the library of congress the association of jewish libraries. And now judaism unbound so sean lee shia welcome to judaism unbounded so great to. Have you excited to be here. We're excited to have this conversation We've been talking about the bible in this series and it's interesting to now move from talking about the bible too. Well what people do with the bible. So i think that some of us have a very unsophisticated understanding of them and some of us have an extremely unsophisticated understanding of other. So i would say that. The thing that i know is basically that i think it's it's worth saying because i think people may say that says strange sounding word that actually in hebrew aramaic like kara means to read so as also a way of talking about the torah. So my understanding is that it's people who really don't believe that the judaism that emerges from the time after the bible is is accurate you know and so really what we should be doing is going back to the bible so now take me more sophisticated than that. There is judaism after the bible. And that judaism is correct. Now the question is like what does is and what does correct me. maybe i'd give you like one nuance to what you said. But it's a massive paradigm shift in what most people think about judaism. There is a written law and there is an oral law. Right so god. According to this form of gave the written torah and oral torah explaining it carrot judaism does not believe that god gave an oral law carried using god gave a written torah. And that's what the carrots follow. Now we also have the entire hebrew bible. That's tanaka and we use that as a source of our laws and understanding difficult times and biblical precedent. But we definitely believe that there is a judaism. Astor the tanakh after the bible closes. And let's talk about what that means every day for everybody. When did this split happen or did it happen. Multiple times between those. Who believe that the that there is an oral and that there isn't so look from a theological perspective right and like we. Carrots would say there was never an oral law and or the people who decided to follow the law broke off away from. What's carrots would say was true and these words very lucy. True historical israelite israelites. Judaism but definitely in the second temple. You see lots of different juice groups in the middle ages. The issa whites the whites anna nights the rights. You're the nights all these different jewish movements in all these different places in all these different times. So yes i think the answer. Your question is that there are many different times where judaism came apart came back together. Came apart came back together. And maybe i should rephrase that instead of saying we're judaism cap came back to but maybe the people who ascribe to judaism have different views at sometimes are more divergence from each other or sometimes came closer to each other so i really want to sit with what you said to start that which is from a care perspective the rabbinate. We haven't used that word yet. But the rabbit nights branched off and followed a new oral law. That had that was not from a care perspective sort of from the divine and i want to sit with that. Because i think there's such a deep way in which even those of us who aren't like orthodox rabbinate jews. We've we've sort of soaked into us that like Judaism of judaism this idea of an oral tradition. You know tomlin that's sort of. There's even for people who don't go to synagogue very much. They might not know what talmud is in deep way but like there's that original document and then there's all these things later that eventually i written but the idea. They're circulating around as oral teachings and they sort of are given the status. That's maybe a slight bit lower than that written doc. Foot and in many ways equal to that original document and sometimes we would even argue as judaism unbound like the newer stuff kind of replaces the torah ways in which there are correctives made from a rabbi perspective in those talmud texts in other texts that sort of change what the torah or other biblical texts are say. This word rabbinate is not a word i had ever heard until i met you but like i i'd love to talk about like there's a term rab night that exists. Wants you back out and say There are other kinds of judaism. If it's almost like we've had conversations with people were like the phrase white jew comes up like if you think all jews are white. It's a silly thing to say. White jews right. It only makes sense. When white jews is a a subsection of broader group of jews similarly the term rabbinate only make sense. When you recognize there are other kinds of jews like carrots. So i'd love to hear from you sean. Like what is it to sort of inhabit a judaism that people don't even know as judaism ism that like is is so fundamentally erased like the terminology that we have is built around. Its own existence when you zoom out and you think judaism and then you kind of say. Oh wait a minute. What's what is rob nights. Era nights jew is somebody who follows the rabbinic tradition so keira heights or are jews. Who follow the curator. Kerr carry tradition In this case. It's a bible based and not tom based tradition juice. Follow the rabbinic tradition. So that includes the entire hebrew bible and all of been literature. Now you've mentioned this question about like never having to think about what it means to be around nights in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy nine and haddassah magazine jewish traveller section a. Rabbi his name is rabbi borrow helmand. He traveled to cairo egypt and he was studying arabic in cairo egypt. Now i'm gonna put a little bit of a notes here in my family comes from the jewish community of cairo. So back to this right. He's he's traveling to cairo. And he's there and he's learning arabic and he is telling his muslim arabic teacher. I cannot come to class on chabad. Because i'm an observant jew. And i won't be the muslim teacher asks in a very comforting friendly voice. Basically what kind of jew are you. Are you a carrot or a rabbi nights and this rabbi tells us. That's the first time you ever had to identify as around nights. And the truth is that unless you are living in egypt and the last century probably no other place in the world where the carrots were prominent enough where somebody would have to say. Are you to revenue.

Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex: ‘If you listen to what I actually say, it’s not controversial’

"Meghan Markle is sharing how she deals with her haters and a discussion for Fortune Magazine's most powerful women summit. She says that she has a sense of humor about it and just keeps real. It's about being authentic, and if you look back at anything that I've said. It's really interesting because it often ends up what ends up being inflammatory. It seems is people's interpretation of it, but if you listen to what I actually say. It's not controversial. And actually some of it is is reactive to things that just haven't happened. Okay. So she talks about being authentic guys thing Meghan Markle is authentic that girl in your group who's like I'm real I like to say like it is I'm always real. Things that you say because I truly think that she is very careful with her words because I do some very smart with it. She's very smart. It's the things that she doesn't say. The things that she didn't say about moving her family from one side one side of the world to the Knicks how hard that could be. She's not saying she hates her inlaws everybody as their in laws give us a little. She says what? Sometimes it's hard. We ever is the Queen. I. Don't think you could say that I mean I think she has to show respect to the authority that the clean has and says, she can't be wine. Lovely. As much as anybody else. But every now and then you can admit sometimes crosses the line. Is. Not. Her mother law is not the Queen of England or or the Prince of England like it's totally different think and she's tried to navigate I think I think I will say in their defense I think she realized that she was not going to be able to survive in that reality of being a part of the royal family, the Royal World and the Royal Protocols they have now moved to the United States. They haven't been here that long we've been in a quarantine for the majority of. The time that they've here. So I feel like now she's going to figure out and navigate and see how she's going to navigate through becoming more authentic and approachable. But also you think about it with the royals are the only sort of old old school institution where like not everything is on and not everything is on instagram. They're not putting all of their business out there and so I think she's authentic to the level that she can be authentic actually don't even really do that many interviews so. We just bits and pieces here and there and maybe. Not, working down more she's up breaking her breakfast smoothie in the morning for.

Excited to be invited that. Doing. Yes I, mean, and I know we had a conversation even before we started recording this about how we are feeling in the world. Yeah, it's just it's tough. It's you know there's so many feelings, and funnily enough and I feel like this thing you get when you have wonderful clients I do. They have been asking me back, so we start off every session with feelings. Check in using the feelings chart. And just been like. Give them all to me, and then let's break it down. Let's talk about where it is in the body, but they're just like, but you have to hold on my stuff. And I know I'm not the only person you see the are you don't genuine questions. Being asked in I will not dishonor up and giving them an answer. And, other some people say that it's inappropriate and all that Miranda. Clients, ask I know it's because they actually want to know. sort of rotary questioned that you know like back in the day when we used to get on elevators with people you gotta be.

Then in this space. But I'm also grateful that I get the be there with my clients as we move through this together. Yeah, you know I think there is something really powerful about that right because you know of course in our training. Don't make the therapy about you that kind of thing, but that's not what this is right. This is a shared space of humanity, especially given everything happening in the world right now you know so I think it is important that win clients. Ask You our you doing that. It's okay to share. Human's a human without it becoming about you. Exactly. Yeah, it's like hey, all this I. Appreciate Your asking me and checking in, but let's look like. Let's get back to you. Always rerouted right. You've definitely not about me, but they're just certain candidates that I've been examining myself throughout. The ethics of our practices in Raleigh right and in my quest to continue to divest from white supremacy whiteness. Myself and the therapist hired. This is part of the work that we are doing that. I'm just like no. We have to examine the ethics in all none that came my way. Does it actually make sense for the people we serve become songwriting know that mental help industry has historically been white male folk it's. That has been the case then. Chances are the ethics that they let us have. Our white male focused. Driven and driven by capitalism white supremacy. Additional work. Come on with this open in prayer. Come on come on. Yeah absolutely I mean, and I don't think it's any like accident. Right that in our facebook groups right in the black facebook groups with their busy that we will often talk about how our practice looks very different. You know like there are lots of things that we have been taught that we figured out. Don't work for US and don't work for the clients that we serve exactly yeah. Absolutely absolutely so I am thankful for you joining us, you know I know. We had a little bit of a back and forth like. Does it feel okay to do this? Does it feel you know wrong? So like do an insecure recap, but also decided that that happiness, and and you know the the warm hug is how I describe. It felt like we got on Sunday night. was something also be celebrated into? Give people a little bit of a reprieve right that we can continue to focus on the fight, but also have moments where we are being restored and celebrating joy and. And for Black People George seeking joy seeking pleasure seeking peace, all of these things are revolutionary as well. These are not things that have been afforded to black beat, so we do deserve moments where we get to re engage with things that help us to feel good that make us laugh that make us engage in a different way. We can still fight this fight, and we are so fighting this fight, even in the midst of rest, even in the midst of seeking pleasure.

In Malia Niece's relationship steps you can try to be less defensive when someone calls you out are in questions to ask yourself about the health of your friendships and our thoughts about where Molly Isa go from this point on. We definitely want you to weigh in with your thoughts as well so be sure to share them with us on social media using the Hashtag T. BG in session. Here's our conversation so they definitely gave us a lot who it was a lot this week. Oh Yeah I was like Whoa. Whoa WHOA WHOA. What will be Matha Prasad? I won't so I definitely was taken by surprise also so I think what happened is well first of all like very early in the episode. We realized that the conversation that we saw in the beginning of the season happened even before the blew up. Yes I'll be honest. I was actually relieved because I was like okay. This confident of the season. So that's what you yes yes right. Maybe hoping that would have been a horrible season day. Molly no more like what is. You're not coming back next. Season was right. So we see that she's having this conversation with Nathan Presumably you know after a was there molly. Has You know said. She's not going to help her. Try to find a new headliner for the block party. So we don't know necessarily how she and Nathan started talking again although we did see last episode that he called and said. Hey I heard is coming along. Congratulations and yeah. So we knew he was. Kinda eeking back into the picture but didn't necessarily know that he was gonNA show up again in such a central figure APP. It was like the original ghost shows that after the other chick go sit by condone and this guy in the same day yes so now that you have broken dollah into the conversation. What do we think about it? Honestly what was the purpose of common? Come into the block party. Yeah okay. So she's here but she Watch her do anything. It's not that she needs to have like some real conversation. As a matter of fact I'm just like okay. So did you really just come here? It'd be like yeah me and Lawrence broke up. Well I feel like a part of her coming was to try to make sure that she was salvaging. Her professional relationships right so it sounds like she was the one who brought spotify onboard. And maybe some other people and so it feels like maybe she was doing some damage control. Make sure you know like hey I was the one who signed you up for this and give me show my face right and given that she doesn't know how e- so you know fared after she dropped her she probably was coming to see like okay. Is Everything going to be good so that I can maintain these professional relationships shrew true? I mean it was. It happened so fast I was like you know what almost the yeah. Yeah so she just POPs back up after ghosting Easter. Yes like you said. He kind of a continuation of the goes man. This kind of goes back to our previous conversation from a few episodes ago just about the importance of having difficult conversations. Even if you don't WanNa have them so yes so now. We've seen that ISA has had to try to manage in scramble to replace her head liner into Kinda. Get all of this stuff. Taken care of after condolences drops out on her and boy. What a scrabble it was. Just I like the whole thing. I mean it really. Does this whole season for me. You know communication but my partner jazz just looking at some of those season. One season two seasons three cats. 'cause the let me refresh some things. Coletta thing for Congress on the Internet but I simply do not agree with I was just like Oh my goodness like season one. Isa Confronted Molly about some foolishness. What does she confront her? He should've watched the recap confront her. Because I definitely have been seeing conversations around like well hasn't been that great of a friend either and so I've been trying to remember like what would has done. That has kind of painted her as not a great France. Oh did you see some of that in the recaps? Not Okay actually. Not What I saw. And you know the memories that sparked fires but I watched for the other. Three seasons was mostly that both of them have foolishness with one another. Both of them had expectations. That were unstated for one. Another and that at times that ended up getting in the way of how they wanted to do their friendship at the end of season. I can't even last. It was at the end but in season I think it was one or two ballots. Went with when Easter was still at. We got y'all She confronted Molly. Like what's up with you you you talking a while. Two people I work with. I mean you trip. Was She act? Sir? I'm not avoiding actually wanting to have a conversation and then just how that whole conversation was so left because molly was hurt that he said maybe you could benefit from therapy. That's when we saw that conversation You know and it's reminded reminder like you know you. The common denominator inaugural messed up relationships as you this one. Is this too thirsty to one? After this will not educated the way you need him to be educated like the common denominator is useless. What are you GONNA do about? Even then that conversation really only came up. Because Molly was you know deflecting Become fronted on her poor behavior by ESA and instead took it as an opportunity of well. What about what you do? I'm just that type of stuff that we do. We do that very often when we are not ready to be confronted we WANNA throw it back to something else. That happened and I was just like well. All of these things. They call less like looking back from season one. It makes sense exactly why they're here where they are in season four.
