Thank you very much having me. Yes absolutely in excited to dive into of conversations about healing. And i want to talk a little bit about how healing our children and loved. Ones can help us heal. But i just introduce yourself to people and tell them what it is you do interface. Hi i'm jacob. Raymond and i run a company golden freedom healing and basically. It's not things. So i i work with small kind of high high need groups up to six people And we work online. And i kind of these mind tradition and experienced to guide them through going from suffering of some kind whether it be trauma all physical ailments or depression anxiety to joy. And i do that by Ready just guiding them to so they can understand which parts of themselves which which parts of them are still stuck in grief or anger rage will will of some kind anticipate guide them to guide them to those hawks themselves in a safe way and we basically spend time just just accepting accepting those parts of ourselves and that starts very simply. That's that's how i understand. Heating works yeah same. Love love your message right there though of helping people to get through the trauma but to get to that place of joy because they think so many people who've been through trauma or in pain and suffering feel like they can't ever get to that place of joy like it's it's an unreachable goal for them in it really truly as possible. I i'm i. I was convinced. It wasn't possible until recently and i was i just kind of what i find really fascinating comeback to second thing of what we do but why family fascinating in my healing journey was how how i was so used to being to and being terrified unjust. Just say when i was slightly. This panicking terrified. I thought that was actually quite good. Oh but then. I can look you looking back on it. Whatever experience on how did not have the obviously a life of kinds of things. I suddenly realized underneath the surface happiness enjoy and relationships and everything else i realized how how much panicking terra i was just just bright unjust destroyed underneath that kind of surface level of happiness and when she stopped to actually hail that that that globe of of terror at Start just getting more and more glimpses of just peace and silence in initially. I thought hang on. What's that strange. What's going on but be stay as you as you do. The work then yeah. It can actually dissolved fully and he can get to a point of just peace and joy and it's quite quite amazing feeling. I'm just getting used to it. I have to say but yes it is. It is a beautiful wonderful place to be. Yes yeah yeah so so. That's that's the work. I do with private clients and then i kind of about a year ago i thought to myself well i could just have a quite comfortable existence just working on a one to one in small groups you not to six people and we basically shed shed healing space shared the journey. And it's an healings. I've found is a lot more effective doing it in a group and you'll focusing on a similar aspect of ourselves that we haven't accepted yet Through a hot three three concussion. And then i thought well hang on there. Were you know millions of people out there. That may be a fold private work or don't have the time or so. What what how. How can i teach the process. How can i actually get it out there. That people can for themselves and it's and it's based on a bit breath work intention acceptance ray simple and i'm sure he's got a lot of experience with with this kind of approach to healing. So i'm craig today. A kind of mini hailing course which. I'm just about twenty twenty thirty people testing out. Now giving me feedback going to be reshooting christmas and then launching it very low Investments that people can actually learn the process themselves. Stay safe which is really important as their as they kind of in accepting during through the of them they'd rather not not go through so you can't escape yourself but other people have a real fair of of facing those parts themselves which should broken yes.

"Now tonight. I wanna talk to you about your mind. You cannot have an obedient life without having an obedient thought life. So i'm gonna say that again you. You're not gonna have an obedient life without first having an obedient thought. Life and i was a christian for many many many years and loved god and couldn't figure out why just kept having so many problems and i didn't understand the stuff about the mind just thought that i couldn't help what i thought. Why can't help what i think. And i didn't have any idea that i could cast down wrong thoughts or i could shut my mind against thoughts that i didn't have to receive everything that fell into my head and just take it as my own. Roll it over and over and over in my mind. I share that. My dad abused me. When i was young. And you know still after all these years sometimes just out of nowhere.

Storytellers: Lorraine Hansberry
"Today's storyteller was a playwright and activist. Who stories centered. African american working class families despite tragically short career. She became the first black woman to have a play produced on broadway half a century later her work remains one of the most celebrated snapshots of black struggles and black joy. Here's the story of lorraine hands berry lorraine hands berry was born on may nineteenth nineteen thirty on the south side of chicago. Her father carl. Augustus was a prominent figure. Within the city's black community having founded one of the first african american banks growing up lorraine and her three older siblings played host to a number of famous people including langston hughes. Wabc boys duke ellington and olympic gold. Medalist jesse owens. Despite their middle class status and cultural connections the hands berries were still subject to chicago's deeply ingrained. Housing segregation agreements known as restrictive covenants were widespread throughout the city. White property owners could collectively agree not to sell to african americans. This practice created a ghetto known as the black belt which ran through the south side when lorraine was eight years old. Her father secretly bought a home. In one of the so-called restricted heads in nineteen thirty seven when the family moved in a white mob attacked a brick was thrown through the window narrowly missing lorraine the local homeowners association filed an injunction for the hands berries to vacate lorraine her siblings were chased spat and beaten during their walks to and from school the supreme court of illinois doubled down on the legality of the restrictive covenant. And the hands. Berries were forced out of their home eventually the. Us supreme court overruled this ruling on a technicality. Thirty blocks subsequently opened up to black families across the south side while this ruling and the hands fight did not outlaw restrictive covenants. It did signal. The beginning of the end for the practice lorraine attended. Chicago's englewood high school where she became interested in theatre. She initially attended the university of wisconsin. Where she cut her teeth with the communist party but left after two years in one thousand nine hundred fifty lorraine moved to new york to be a writer by nineteen fifty one lorraine had found a home in harlem and began socializing with many of the great thinkers who had once visited her family back in chicago. She started writing for paul robeson freedom a progressive newspaper at a protest against racial discrimination at new york university lorraine met robert number off a jewish writer. They married at her family home in chicago. In nineteen fifty three in nineteen. Six robert co wrote the hit song. Cindy oh cindy it's prophets allowed lorraine to stop working to focus on writing. She began developing a play that she initially called. The crystal stair langston hughes poem mother to son she would later changed the name to a raisin in the sun. This too was from a langston hughes poem called harlem. What happens to a dream deferred. Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun or faster like a sore and then run a raisin in the sun centers on a black working class family in chicago south side as they try to improve their financial situation. The patriarch of the family has died and a ten thousand dollar insurance payout is imminent they the money to buy a house in the cheaper all white neighborhood nearby to they use it to invest in a liquor store and education lorraine based many of the characters on the families who rented from her father and with whom she attended high school the cast safer one character was entirely black lorraine was in her twenties and the play itself dealt with racism life in chicago's black belt and the pain of assimilation into white culture topics that were considered risky for the predominantly white theater. Going crowd it took over a year to raise enough money to put the play up. When it debuted in nineteen fifty-nine a raisin in the sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on broadway and the first to be led by an african american director lorraine was twenty nine years old. The play was an almost instant. Hit the new york drama critics circle named it.

A film starring much of the original cast was released and several of the actors received golden globe. Nominations perhaps the most important element of the play success was that entailing box stories. Lorraine also make theater accessible and previously unimaginable ways as the writer. James baldwin noted. I had never in my life seen so many black people in the theater and the reason was that never before in the entire history of the american theatre had so much of the truth of black people's lives and seen on the stage. Black people had ignored the theatre because the theatre had always ignored them lorraine would go on to finish in stage. Just one other. Play the sign in sidney bruce.

Author Melissa Albert Returns
"Back. We talked three years ago when you were a debut author with a little book called. The hazelwood obviously came out. Hit the best. The new york times bestseller lists so kind of reflect back on that. What was that like to have. You know this first time out this book that had kind of been ruminating in your head for song. Come out and be embraced By large number of people. Yeah okay it was a trip obviously I think when i wrote the book i had the sense that it was very specifically geared toward my own. Kind of odd obsessions like. I had this idea that. I wanted to kind of shove. It full of all of the weird little rabbit hole interests that i have all the like old magic then kind of references to books. I loved as a kid. All that stuff. And i think that i assume that we kind of boil down to something pretty specific so to see it. Get a broader. Thon was so exciting. Absolutely it was headed for sure but but wonderful. And what does that like. Because i'm sure like you know. We talked during your first as we talked about like the books. That broke with from babysitters club to wheezy batson chronicles of narnia. And things like that and a lot of those were. Obviously you know popular books but the have kind of just these little niche kind of books little things little details little fantasy aspects. Did you were kind of into two then kind of does it feel like what's the word i'm looking for that you're kind of it's validating in that. Oh my little like obsessions growing up our other people's obsessions too. I think really. It really was feeling i've gotten as i've gotten older and as i have talked to more bookish people particularly bookish women i think there's this there's this common thread among people who become writers or maybe one anybody who's been adolescent that they had this sense of being like the kid alone at the lunch table regardless of how literally true that was which in my case it was quite literally true and a lot of a lot of times in my life. there's that sense of like. Oh my god. I thought i was so alone but all across the world in every lunch room there was a kid alone pouring themselves into a book and now i'm kind of built now and i can look back affectionately at this earlier version of myself and i can feel like wow. There's this whole group of people who kind of had the same experience and now we can find each other. Because i'm lucky enough to kind of be plugged into this this bush community. Now so it's it's it is validating it is comforting. And it's always gives me that feeling of like oh i wish i i wish i could've known how comforting this would have been And touch that like dorner. i talk. We talked a lot about like the books. Were into growing up. But when it comes to like you as an adolescent you kind of touching on just now what type of kid what type of teenager where you into like outside of books that you read like what we're obsessions interests when you're a young person so when i was a kid i need to kind of feel like oregon stop books. I can't think i would. Not i was not a spotty kid. Wasn't nature kid. I was definitely I have a really dear friend. My best friend amy. She's been my best friend for almost my entire life. She's like a sister and she was an outdoor kid. I got really lucky that i kind of the universe paired up with the best friend. Who's very different from me. She dragon books but in general. She's not like such a big kind of fantasy person as i am She you can outdoor kid. She physical kid She got me out of out of the house out of my own skin and that really helped but aside from kind of her dragging me kicking and screaming into nature which. I grew to love I was really very interior kid. Especially outside of my own house right like i was with my family but a little bit more closed and shy outside of that and then i kinda came into myself as a teenager when i started to embrace You know you have that thing in grade school where you feel like that safety numbers thing and kind of try to flatten out your weird edges to fit in and then in high. You're like oh wait like not fitting in hats. That's what's cool. So i started being able to embrace my own oddities high school and that was absolutely road. Integrator happy deaf. Do you think you know where we've been locked down half of these many months. Do you think if you had to have gone through this. As a young person you would have been okay. You know. I think about that a lot in the early days. I absolutely believe that i would love that. That i would've been happy in my little kingdom of books and hanging out with my mom i think ultimately it would've been really bad really. It would have played into my Natural useful tendencies toward you. Know deadly introspection and Yeah i don't think that would have been good. It was definitely a shock to my system to be forced among my peers and forced to find my way but it was ultimately an arduous journey. That helped me. Be a functioning. You an introvert. Who can function when needed an extrovert. Who can take joy in other people. How 'bout you do you feel. How would you have done

Top 10 Best and Worst Games of 2020
"Assembled our very own top ten list of the best and worst games of 2020. To kick it off. Let's start with the worst the truly terrible of last year at number five. The worst game of last year is bleeding edge. Do you guys even remember this game? It was a pack of sugar without being an actual shooter in a market already overcrowded by other hero Shooters. Yeah instead of guns. You want to given mainly weapons that being swords knives six years now, that's entertainment at number four is Cooking Mama Cooks car and this game is absolutely my favorite of the worst because this adorable animated cooking game not only sucked because it was so tedious and repetitive. It was also a scam. Yeah, the game was an unlicensed product that served as a mining platform for cryptocurrency number three on our naughty list is not Elder Scrolls blades the game that pretended to be Skyrim but wasn't even close the game had lengthy talk scenes and tried forcing you to buy upgrades for gear. That wasn't even valuable in the first place down. That it was so insanely boring. Our number two on the sucky list is Warcraft 3 reforged wizard infuriated their entire gaming base with this one by promising fans graphical updates and cinematics upon launch instead is only got minor texture upgrades and hostile user policies the game became so hated that it received the lowest use on rated score on Metacritic as the great big Norton pointed out. You really slapped us off base with this one blizzard and Now ladies and gentlemen, the worst game of 2020 is Crucible the game was so generic all around and offered nothing new Amazon's new gaming. I thought was so poorly received that Jeff Bezos D list of the game a few days after it's released and put it back into closed Beta And as for the server's well, those were shut down on November 2020 just six months after lunch. Now, let's switch to the Great Stuff guys the games that provided a sheer joy and happiness. And what was a troubling year number five on the good list is The Last of Us Part 2? Now I know what this game was divisive due to its pacing and users playing as the bad guy but there was a ton to celebrate here. The combat was richer environments were more immersive and the stealth sections for even more intense it honestly took me a month to beat the campaign and that's not because I'm a slow player. I just hiding in the grass from each of the guards for about two hours. Our fourth best game of 2020 goes to Half Life Alex. This game was a technical Masterpiece and raised the bar for VR titles capturing detailed environments at 60fps with an incredible story predating Half-Life two before then. I thought we are games were pretty silly. This one opened my eyes and my living room Number three on our list is Ghost of tsushima this amazing Samurai sword-wielding game. Not only had a compelling storyline, but also offered a multiplayer mode where you and your friends can fight together as Samurai. Number two goes to you guessed it Animal Crossing. This game helped us make it through the pandemic as we crafted our islands and invited Burns over 40 special events or whatever you're into some people recreated game shows others held their weddings in graduation ceremonies for me. I just love scuba diving for see stars with the screw the turn of game. It's all about the stars and the number one best game of 2020 goes to cyberpunk. Yeah, the reason for this one and finally came
The Sexual Fantasies Episode
"In twenty fifteen sadly before my time But we as you like ten okay but basically we just wanted to take a fresh look. At the topic and address it again kind of looking at some facets that weren't really addressed in our first episode and just kind of continuing the conversation about what i think is just a really central topic right so i. I felt strongly about doing this. Because i feel like fantasies are really central to people lives especially on long-term sex lives. I feel like this comes up so often. They concern about fantasizing all for my religious patience and may not religious patients most couples who have been having sex for more than. Let's say two years or three years ago to hit this one way or the other either because they should be fantasizing. 'cause it makes sex more interesting and it allows their sex life to take all kinds of different directions. Also i feel like people have so much trouble with this so from novel. Just i get this idea like. Oh my god i feel guilty that somehow thinking about somebody besides my spouse and from my religious patients i hear oh my god is a major issues with the fact that i'm thinking about my spouse so i can start talking about the fact. Why don't think it's a problem from a moral and ethical perspective. But say something from the you know helen piece. I don't sure So there's a passage in the talmud in dr that says that the man is not allowed to drink from one cup while placing his eye while looking at another cup and obviously it means not allowed to have sex with his wife. while thinking about another woman You don't like the metaphor here from context context says both of them are his wives. So there you go. It's clear almost august. it's basically explicit. So that seems to say exactly that this type of scenario is a problem. But here's the big but it seems that if you actually look at it more closely and you look at what the commentators say I don't think that it relates to the type of fantasy that you're talking about. There's good evidence that at least for many commentators in means that a person is not supposed to be using their wife as standing for the woman they really wanna be having sex with. And i think you see that already. A little bit in the language of etain enough should not be placing his eye which really means like focusing on desiring. Different woman does not just mean sort of fantasizing but maybe helpful. So i i can quote some sources that make that point but maybe it'd be helpful by kevin for you to address that reality like why is it not cheating on your husband or on your wife to be thinking of someone else so i know i've probably made this point in other episodes but i think the most important thing for people to realize is that when you're thinking about somebody else you're thinking about a fictional person even if you're thinking about a real person it's a fictional person because that may be a real person that you have seen on television or have seen at you know you're at a workplace meeting or something so they're real a certain level but the fans you have about having sex with them does not include the fact that you come home every day to them. They don't do the dishes when they say they're going to do the dishes. They don't pick up their socks that they're dropping on the floor right. You have taken this element of this person. And you've distilled it down to the pieces of the person and the elements of the person that turn you on or that will turn you on and that is why. It's not really a real person that you're having sex with it's a fantasy of even if it is. That's why i laugh a little bit when somebody's like if i have a fantasy about a fictional character. Everybody you're having a fantasy about is a fictional character. Even if it's somebody that you kind of know socially again you have just turned them into this fantasy character for you to have sex with them. That's number one number. Two is also for sure before you are making the decision to have sex with this person who is in the room with you and so if you have a fantasy character in her head. It's because you're using that person you're using that person in order to have sex with this person right so who's getting used right. It's a fantasy character not the person you're actually having sex with at the moment and i think that becomes really really important lesson for people. I had this one patient once not that long ago. Who was just so good because it was so distilled where she. She started crying when we start talking about. I asked her if she thought about other people and she was having sex and she said she does but she feels terribly guilty about it. And i said well. Why do you feel guilty bench. Then i think my husband must also be thinking about other women and that makes me feel terrible. And i was like okay. It makes me feel terrible because you think you should only be thing beg you and you should be the only thing that ever turns him on and so she sort of nodding through her tears. I knew she had this. You know grown up daughter. I said your daughter. She's in a relationship. Now do you want for the rest of her life to only be thinking about one man and she sort of looked at me and she started laughing she was like not really and i said and her boyfriend you want if she gets married. You want her husband's only be thinking about her for the rest of his life. You should only be thinking about her as the only that turns him on. Is this young woman. And she's well. Oh my god. I think you'd be a sociopath. If that was the case and i was like yeah you think so. It was so much easier for her to see this with her daughter and her daughter's boyfriend we had these kind of crazy romanticised views. That as soon as you sort of put them under a microscope do not make any sense at all. So i think we like our little kind at ourselves and say like this is really unrealistic. Your erotic brain likes new things. It doesn't like repetition. Repetition is not erotic right road. Familiar tents erotic. So how do you bring the new win to your relationship and you wanna have a good sexual relation with this person for you. Know thirty years forty years of best and easiest way to do that is to use fantasy so like a big fantasies and i i really feel like people need to like lighten up on themselves a little bit now. I will say my only caveat if there is somebody that you know and you keep fantasizing about the same person again and again and again and you're not feeling good about your relationship that's already a different story and that's a problem but that's not what we're talking about. We're talking about most people who are thinking about a movie star or like an idea of somebody you know or a a baseball player. Whatever teacher so what if somebody you know. See someone at work. It's really turned on and come some. Let's say a man comes home and has sex with his wife and doesn't like once keep his eyes closed while he's having sex with his wife so he doesn't he could be thinking of this person and not his wife. He's still choosing to have sex with his white he's married and this other woman is married to like. Sometimes we're not making that choice. Actively those are the circumstances where stuck in our. Let's a funny way to put something like okay. Some saint you. If there's a problem in your relationship this seems like an ongoing problem has to be addressed. But let's let me refrain that like he sees this woman he gets really dot and he uses that in order to have great sex with his wife. That's amazing like what difference does it make. If he's you know if the vision he hasn't his is you know twenty minutes. Twenty seconds before orgasm is sort of blurring between this woman and his wife. It's great now. Those pleasurable feelings have now connected with his wife right if he's constantly fantasizing about this woman and he's having issues with stock which is what you said. This is where stuck with. is that language. Like i feel like that's where the change us abc and stop saying this is what you're stuck with. This is what you're you're using it roddick energy that you pick up from other parts of your life and you're bringing back into your marriage and i think that's much more sort of positive way to look at it. Is sarah looking horrified. I law. i'm. I'm just wondering if we brought in the conversation a little bit because right now it sounds like both of you are talking just about fantasizing about another person or like imagine character or whatever. I'm also wondering your thoughts about just fantasizing in general like maybe fantasizing like during the workday about having a new type of sex with your spouse or you know just kind of like having fantasies about sex like no not while you're having sex so i'm amazed that because why would that be a problem like in other words i feel like the only thing comes up in my mind is problem is the one fantasies are great every fantasy. All the time is great. The only one that people seem to have a lot of problems with our when involves thinking about some of the other than your partner. I don't know though. I mean i feel like there's during the course any kind of sex no but during the day if some of these getting turned on by somebody you know people probably feel guilty through right. I'm well also. I mean this might be coming from my own misinformation. But isn't there an idea of like here. Haram kind of just like negative idea of like fantasizing about sex maybe wall you're learning or like or maybe just in general a we're not supposed to being thoughts are looking for is in our hearts. The laughter here who right so the ramoche divided into two categories. One is to have really plan to do a sin like to plan to commit adultery like a very intentional. So that's put that aside the other one. Is you know men having sexual thoughts which can lead to seminal emission know to masturbation or actually sitting in a worse way. I was once teaching this text out. The problem about here haram in a married man. Whatever ran looking at a woman sexually and the student The guy was teaching it to any sets be. What does it matter where you get your appetite as long as you come home to eat. So which i thought was exactly what
Laughter Is The Best Medicine
"So entity parenti. Moment i want to focus on was called laughter and i'm going to read it. Comedian steve. martin reportedly reportedly lasts for five minutes in front of his mirror every morning. Explaining his goal is to jump start. His creativity begin the day on a high note. So just picture that. I care but you but i just wonder how often what does that urban legend and if that's really was from his memoir a believe it but there's gotta be it's that's a lot to ask five minutes of well. Do you think he d he could do it. I mean people meditate for ten minutes a day. I'm sure he can laugh for five minutes. And i think it's all relative right like even people who say they meditate everyday miss days. I think his point is sometimes gotta get yourself worked up to the place where you like. I've been bright. You know you know. I write every morning and lately. I've just been saying Good morning how are you talking to myself. Will i keep doing that. I don't know. But what i'm trying to do is engage myself. Tim totally engaged my thinking so he may do something else to make himself last. You go on to say children. We left hundreds of times a day but as adults we take life so seriously that laughter becomes infrequent it is in our best interest to seek out opportunities for good humor us better inside and out. Laughter is one of the best things we can do to strengthen our immune system decrease pain and keep our mind out of worry mode. Nothing works faster or more dependable to bring us back into balance then laughing enclosing. It's more than just a break from sadness and pain. It's actually a path back to hope. A humorous perspective creates a psychological distance. That can make situations feel less. Threatening and more manageable. Laughter is medicine offsetting the physical and psychological impact of stress and increasing our ability to feel joy. Yes there's the moment. Yeah so. I think the reason you played the Indigo girls was because i used that quote from that song. Exactly right yeah well. It's only life after off. And just because i've played this clip a million times. I'm gonna play two million in one. This is the this is audio of the infant baby laughing at his dog or her dog eating popcorn. I think that would be more productive than in the mere. Like if i feel like that should be in my to do list. Every morning is look at this baby laughing. Yeah yeah that's a way to start the day right. They're not cnn or fox or msnbc. That's the way to start the yes. Yeah i agree. I mean and i think that it It comes from that baby that comes from the gut. That's a good laugh. It's very like solely focused on what's funny in you like. As adults we start to like lose our good laugh laugh becomes more like. Yeah but i got focused here like we are. We don't really like focus in on the thing. That's funny and i think memories are often created around really deep hard laughs like we have stories where we were laughing so hard that we like either felt sick or like we're doubled over and that creates a memory. You know what i mean. I do
interview With June Ambrose
"Listen up. This is going to be such a fun. Episode of checking in with michelle williams. I've had a few moments with my guest. June ambrose as it relates to mental health and fashion and there was an episode that we filmed on his show she had on. Vh wild cod style. By june ambrose. I was so insecure. Because i was coming out of well. It'd been a few years. Since i was a solo artist. And no longer touring. They're singing with destiny's child. I was trying to find my style footing outside of the group. How was trying to refine. It actually couldn't refine it. Because i had to define it and june. Ambrose really really helped me with that. Will we found out that it was deeper than defining my fashion sense. We discovered so much fear in me of walking alone doing something by myself so she said to a place where it was a cia trap. He studio where i only thought that. If you're training for gymnastics or the circus that you should only be going to these types of places but going into that trap appease plays when you have to stand on the ledge. I literally burst out in tears. Because i had a revelation that i was scared to take the leap by myself. That was just a personal nugget. I'm just so thankful to june for helping me discover that once again at went beyond anything that she was going to put me in fashion wise. It went beyond anything that surge on the makeup artist was gonna do with my makeup. It went beyond any even. They dyed my hair but none of that mattered. If i was going to continue to walk around with so much fear hours just literally gonna look fierce and be fearful and wanna be fearful some just so thankful to june for helping me take that leap of faith. Now i want to welcome to my podcast. June ambrose and amazing style icon herself but she has made her clients to be celebrity style icons as well especially in the hip hop world for superstars like missy elliott and jay z. And so many more. She's also the creative director for the global brand puma. And when she's not on my podcast she's an n. b. man costume designer for some of the biggest music videos and tv shows. But let me tell you something. She's also just a fabulous friend wife and mother please welcome. I can call her my friend. Y'all please welcome june ambrose. How category. I absolutely absolutely. I really wanted to just speak on your joy. And also the psychology behind your styling. But as i was thinking of people to be on this podcast especially those that are walking their journey to have a better quality of mental health. As said june. Ambrose is always smiling. June ambrose is always full of joy and i was like i never see her in a bad mood and i just wanna know june. How do you keep your joy. It's really exhausting. To be sad it'd be sad instead of the other way around. Yeah like it's. I find that you know i. Smoke is joining that. Were on in life. The cycle we think it's as we're living but it's going very slow but it's actually going really. It's a short trip you know. We're lucky we get a hundred years. You know so. I tried to make everyday count. I try to even on my worst date on on our bed. Dang something happens that may be upsetting or disappointing. I know that it won't that you know there's always a tomorrow. Hopefully yeah if. I want there to be if there isn't gonna make this moment joyful. Yeah i just to tap. And i think since memories really help you to kind of stay happy you know when you tap back into those moments that joint like always tell people that hate taking photos if you feel awkward and uncomfortable in front of a camera tap into like sense memories and think about the feeling the emotion not about. What's in front of you but think about what's inside of you. You know that constant reminder that technique is something that takes practice so if you work on tapping into the joy. When you're in pain you'll be able to call on it even if it doesn't it doesn't sustain you for length of time. At least you know you have the ability to tap into a good feeling. You have that choice now. Some people struggle with not being able to tap into their joy. You know for for many reasons. But i recognize that is one of my superpower so i like to share it and it's just again. It's less exhausting. it's more fun being degi. Hear what she said. Did you get those nuggets. I mean because i feel like you were saying even if you are having a bad day you don't you're not gonna let it turn into your worst day and i also feel like if you're having a bad day some people will let everybody know around them that they're having a bad hair then you make everybody else have a bad day for michelle is kind of also you patient than than a man in space and i'm in creative space also working with celebrity talent and working with corporate big companies beauty brands in different scenarios and being on camera you after how to put that away and not bring that into the space right. So it's like you can't walk into a classroom day you know. You can't go on camera with a day. You have to find a way to pack away.
Anna Wintour defends Vogue’s controversial Kamala Harris cover
"It's been a busy week for vogue and anna winter. I spoke with her last friday about her thirty two year. Tenure as editor in chief of vogue. We also discussed february cover featuring vice president-elect kamala harris the very next day the february cover leaked and internet react and not in a good way in the photo harris's standing in front of a green and pink backdrops in a black jacket skinny pants pants and converse sneakers which have become famous and social media the twitter reactions. I saw were overwhelmingly negative. Some took issue with the styling oppose others with the lighting only spoke last week. Winter told me that she found the cover welcoming and relaxed but the general consensus online was that it was too casual that it did not rise to the historic occasion of the first woman. Vice president the first black woman vice president that it was disrespectful. It's certainly didn't bode well for conde nast or for winter. Who is been here before having been accused of racially insensitive coverage and workplace discrimination by some of our staff just seven months ago according to people familiar with the matter on both sides. There is not a written formal agreement in place. These people also say the vice president elect team had an expectation of a different cover. One in which harris is wearing a blue suit and standing in front of a gold backdrop. It's a more stately and serious photo and one that is clearly more fitting for a vice president by sunday. That photo was released as a digital cover along with the one that was originally leaked at the time of this recording. People familiar with the matter said the photo with the sneakers will be the only physical cover they added. That vogue is considering using the more formal portrait in a second print edition after the cover leaked. I went back to winter for comment. She said quote. Obviously you've heard and understood the reaction to the print cover and i just want to reiterate that it was absolutely not our intention to in any way diminish the importance of vice president-elect incredible victory we want nothing but to celebrate vice president-elect harris's amazing victory and the important moment this is america's history and particularly for women of color all over the world. She also said there was no formal agreement about what the choice of the cover would be and when the two images arrived at folk all of us felt very very strongly that the less formal portrait of the vice president elect really reflected the moment that we were living in which we are in the midst as we still are of the most appalling pandemic is taking lives by the minute and we felt to reflect this tragic moment in global history. A much less formal picture something. That was very very accessible and approachable and real really reflected the hallmark of the biden harris campaign and everything that they're trying to and i'm sure it will achieve. I'm not exactly sure with the pandemic has to do with it. But here's my conversation with anna winter and just as a reminder again. This interview was recorded before the cover leaked. Can you tell me about the cover. Shoot and how you got her to do this. Well we're very on it that we have current vice president elect on the cover. I think by the time we published. She will be the vice president. And obviously it's a historic moment for women of color for america and it was an ongoing compensation for time and obviously with everything that was going only the election. We were thrilled when we knew that she would make the time for the shoot and honored and we had featured her invoked before and obviously covered the campaign and many different ways of the campaign season. And we very much wanted to have this cover around the time of the inauguration because we felt that it would be cia moment of celebration and joy pitcher directly. Did you picture yourself. No that was done by my features team and they were in touch with her office but it was very much a compensation between bogan the vice president alex office. I can't believe i'm asking this. But what is she wearing. Well the favorite item of clothing that she's wearing on the cover for me is that she's wearing sneakers. Well of course converse. That's right and the picture was taken by a wonderful young photographer talent. Who had previously photograph beyond safe for us and also wildly successful december cover of harry styles and he had the wonderful idea putting her in front of the colors of sorority which sort of like pink and green and she's standing in a black pant suit and a white t shirt and and seko's is this. Her clothing is these. These are close. Yes and she looks fantastic. Did you want to put her in other clones or we were very open. I mean i think that she has a very assured sensus style. I if you look at any images of her during the campaign season is she has a very strong sense of self what she wants to wear so she was very clear on what she wanted to wear. And on the inside pictures. She has a super chic blue Michael kors pantsuit. And i think it's very much in character And i think that the the kaaba itself is so charming and so relaxed and for me so surprising and so real. And as i listened to the president elect and the vice president elect talk about embassy and unity and bringing people together to me that this covers symbolizes. That i feel it's a very welcoming image.
Sex and the City Is Coming Back
"Sex and the city is coming back. You guys parker cynthia. Nixon and kristin davis confirmed it with this teaser. They're bringing the show back to life on. Hbo maxima. here's a twist for one thing. The show has a new name. It's called and just like that. The other big changes. That kim cottrell will not be back. As samantha. super surprise about that part of it. But you guys here for this look. I think everybody has been waiting for this to happen for a very long time. Where that you like. The series are not whether you like the movies are not you know a character. You still know which character that you are. This show holds a place. And everybody's heart. I don't care who you are man ads. but also what if your character doesn't come back. Like i'm a combination of carrying samantha. So half of me is no longer in this series. And i think you know what i mean like me. That really upsets me. I i found out about this late yesterday was like what's going on. I didn't fully understand what was going on. I'm here for it. But the fact that they're trying to use a different title and try to differentiate from sex in the city as much as possible. I just feel like is the juice worth the squeeze like you have such an iconic franchise you did the show for however many seasons. You have two movies the second movie we let pass because whatever we're super fans and we didn't care as much as we should now to revamp it in like a smaller scale with only three of the women when it's really about the four of them and then also to know that whatever feud has gone on behind the scenes is so bad that somebody will not return sort of just jolts. I don't know the the magic of it all a little bit. Like do people want no samantha. In this show one time samantha. But i i. I love the other girls enough that i told him away without her own. No the problem is the show is called. Sex city remarried broadband. We know nobody's having sex in that city. Okay so give me somebody. I need you to cast somebody. Who's going to be that young sexy siren that's going to actually explore the city as a single woman and have these women go ahead and kind of guide her through now over the years i will say sex in the city has gotten a little bit of pushback because of their lack of diversity this is. Hbo's chance and sexy cities chance to show that they can cast somebody in that role at all. I want is a quarterly simmons or isa raid in that role. We had you know. I love the. I also think it's one of those things. Where if you're not gonna bring samantha back and i know i read a little bit about the show this morning. And it says it's about the women navigating friendships in their fifties. Then i think that you need to also include losing friends. People throughout their life people who have been friends for twenty years. If you're no longer going to have samantha around. I don't wanna hear that samantha's in la or central pay or dating. Some man tell us that samantha went awol. And y'all are not cool anymore. Like i love that. And pretend she's gone and it's all fine also. Don't you think that some are Critic his character is going to be like the one divorce because she's so least likely to be divorced. They've gotta have a good twist. They're already been divorced. she's dead. She converted also watch your language. Watch your language because you keep on saying if you're not gonna have some antibac- if you're not going to invite her in samantha. Was the one kristen her name. I'm i can into the one who said she would never do. Another sex in the city again never wanted to play that character again. It was not her. She wanted to move on. So we can't because a lot of people are pointing fingers at sarah jessica parker a nephew of why shouldn't come back but she said she wasn't going to come. Was it on like kim yet. Her but there was. She couldn't get the last. I think we're done with samantha. They hate each other and the fact that they hate each other to the extent that they hate each other and we still don't really know why is fascinating to me couple. Let's get a couple like major things about the story. What do you think so you think you guys both in kristen's karat. Why can blink charlotte. You think charlottesville. What about big and kerry together or broken up together can carry gonna be together. I don't think it's going to be. I think the new adventures are gonna come with the new woman. I think we're going to get the fashion. I think we're going to get the city. And i also think we're going to get a diverse for the character that we have always need it in this series or something like twenty twenty one like i think it's i think it's just give me comoro. You like let me get my life. Yeah i'm excited about this. I am excited to see what it's gonna be and how they're gonna do it. I'm sure it's going to be good no matter what the way. Let's be honest if kim control really wanted to come back on this show. They would have done it. She worked the last two seasons not liking. Sarah jessica parker joy behar and go back and rosie o'donnell crossing each other at a table for three years. These two can be on together at young to be kuenz. Has no interest was over sad. Can
6 essential lessons for women leaders
"And goes ten years ago. When i became prime minister of australia i assume that at the start they would be a strong reaction to me. Being the first woman about it would obeyed over time. And then i would be treated the same. As savory out. The prime minister head bain was so wrong. That didn't happen the longer. I governed the more visible the sexism became. I don't want any other woman to be blindsided like that. That's why i'm so excited about working with you to help. Women get ready to lead in what is still a sexist world. I share that sense of excitement. After i was finance minister of nigeria was overwhelmed by the number of women who wanted me to be the mental. It is terrific that aspiring young women are keen to learn from those who have gone before. But they're still too few female role models especially women of color now. As a result of the work we have done together. I can offer everyone. Class standout lessons. That tabbies just of my own experience. What on the global research on women and leadership and the candidate sites of leading women one of the things to share. Is that this joy in being a leader in having the opportunity to put your values into action emphasizing. The positive makes a real difference to the power of role modeling if we only focus on the sexist negative experiences. Women may decide that being a latest. Sound so grim. They don't want to do it on the other hand if we pretend it so rosy and easy women and girls can be put off because they decide. Leadership is only for super women who never have any problems. We all have to get the balance right but in ghozi. It's impossible to talk about role models right now without asking you. How does it make you feel to see. Camera harris elected as vice president. I'm delighted it's important to the association of girls and women that they see role models. They can relate to vice president-elect terrace exactly that kind of role model particularly for girls and women of color and every woman who steps forward makes small space for the women will come next of course both of us know from and experiences that even win women get to the top unfortunately too much time and attention will be spent on what they looked like rather than what they do and say and ghozi for women. Is it still all about the head. Certainly julia. I laughed when hillary clinton said she envied by dress style and particularly my signature scuff. So i don't need to worry about my hair. Like many of women leaders have effectively adopted a uniform. a colorful one. it's african. it's me. I have developed my own style that i wear every dan. I don't vary from it. That has helped protect me from endless discussion of my appearance. It's helped me to get people to listen to my words not look at my clothes. Hillary told us she lost the equivalent of twenty four four days of campaign time in the two thousand sixteen election getting her hair and makeup done every day but actually contemporary problems for women leaders go far deeper than anything to do with looks at better. Warn now about to use the would. Many people would find rude. My favorite funny moment. He now travels was discussing resting bitch. Face with prime minister earner solberg of norway. the global research shows that if a man comes across strong and bishops. Even so faking. That's fine but if a woman does it in the reactions against her can be as visceral as revulsion or contain. They pretty mind bogglingly. Strong words happy. They certainly are women. Lee does talk about intuitively understanding that to be viewed as acceptable as a leader. They have to stay balanced on a tightrope between strength an empathy if they come across as too tough there viewed as hard unlikable but if they come across as too soft there seemed to be lacking the backbone needed to lead the problem.

"I want to start with. I wanna play this snippet for you of matthew mcconaughey. And a talk he did. He is an amazing speaker. And any of you that have done my mindset makeover video series. He's in a couple of the videos. I share with you during that mindset makeover and that's totally free five day of video every day to your inbox but i wanna play the snippet for you because this is exactly what we're talking about in. This is what i want you to think about is just as important where we are not as it is where we are. Look the first step that leads to our identity. Life is usually not. I know who i am. I know who i am. That's not the first step the first step. Usually i know who i am not process of elimination defining ourselves by what we are not is the first step that leads us to really know who we are a group of friends that you hang out with their they really might not bring out the best in the gossip too much kind of shady Gonna be there for you in a pinch about that bar. We keep going to that. We always seem to have the worst hangover from over that computer screen right. The computer screen keeps giving us an excuse not to get out of the house and engaged with the world. It gets real human interaction. I bet that food that we keep eating stuff taste good. Going down makes us feel like crap. The next week we feel when he put on weight will those people those places those things stop giving them your time and energy. Just don't go there. i mean. put them now. And when you do this when you put them down when you quit you quit giving them your time you inadvertently find yourself spending more time and in more places that are healthy for you that bring you more joy. Why because you just eliminated the who's the wears the once in the winds that were keeping you from your identity. Trust me too many options. I promise you there's too. Many options will make tyrant of is. All i get rid of the excess wasted time. Decrease your options. If you do this you will have accidentally almost innocently put in front of you. What is important to you process. Elimination how about that. I love this thought process in. This is so much what i think about. When i'm thinking about changes that i wanna make or when i'm thinking about if my anxiety is extra high or i'm feeling uncertain which guesses anxiety to right but this is what i think about like. What are there things in my life that are causing me more anxiety and discomfort in disease and this is people places and things we talk about this in twelve step programs a lot and again when you want to change something when you want something in your life to be different. Then you have to do things differently and often times. That's going to mean making decisions differently. It's going to mean different people. Different places different things. Have you ever thought about it this way about moving things that don't serve you rather than adding more things. i think. We have a tendency to add more things. Like we're always in this quest for happiness and it's about stuff and things wanting to add things to distract us right in. I'm all about distraction especially in the throes of a craving or high anxiety or when. You're super upset. I think in those moments one of the best things you can do is kind of distract yourself until some of that emotion comes down in then. You can figure out really how to cope with it and often times. That quest for happiness is more about removing things. That aren't serving us. And that's really what i want to get into in some changes that i did in twenty twenty. That made a big difference for me and it just food for thought some things that you can think about again especially going into this new year this fresh new perspective the next version of you that you're going to build the next level of your sobriety your life your relationships. I want you to think about some of the things that you can take out of your life. That just don't serve you. Well the first things that i really started to cut down on in the beginning of corona virus was news in negative information. And this isn't just about corona virus but also this kind of place together but also the political part of everything. The last few years has just been super toxic and weird and divisive and i. I don't like divisive anyway. So i don't like to play into that. That news just got super overwhelming to me now. Obviously i check in. We have a
Sony Confirms At Least 10 Movies and TV Shows Based on PlayStation Franchises In the Works
"The headline here. Sony has seven. Tv shows and three movies in development based on playstation games. No word on if the uncharted movie and the last of us tv series are included in that count So this came directly from sony pictures chairman and ceo where he revealed that his studio is developing seven tv shows. Movies based on playstation games They didn't name any names. Which i thought was interesting They didn't name any dates. Either i mean it's it's interesting right. The big headline. It's a catchy headline. It goes back to sort of a common theme here which is disney. Everything becoming disney The question is what seven tv shows and three movies are going to. Are they gonna make like the you would think they would have less than a little bit. I with the slate of tv's shows and movies sort of being hit or miss on the gaming front. Why not name specific so that they could get some kind of audience feedback and reaction guys. Think i'm particularly interested in these. Tv shows a lot harder than you know. Hour and a half to our movie like a lot of how are they going to agreed entire development but like for example last of us just as as an example. I see that much more as a series tv series than a movie way that one. Either you know. Like uncharted awesome movie. I would watch the movie in a second. But i'm charted obvious here right. Yeah so it out. It's like fixed indiana jones. It's like deanna jones but good. Now let potlucks i. I should say indiana jones. That came out rock. Indiana jones was always incredible and the first three movies are amazing. I mean the margin just to be very clear yes. Indiana jones is amazing. Don't worry paul. We still agree on that. I was about to go after. There is no joy in my heart. I do not like any film harrison. Ford what's that other big zombie series. I wife walking dead right won't wouldn't the last of us tv series feel like a lot like walking dead walking very successful true. True that is shockingly popular like however pushes won't feel and look very much the same. I don't know well. I could say that about every zombie movie ever doesn't days later feel like dawn of the dead. Feel like i don't know you know. Heart of darkness feel like our army of darkness. Like i mean there's zombie thing. Apparently we can have infinitely many of them. People still watch them martin's comments maybe the best here god of war movie would be incredible. I agree but let me come back to the original question here. Why why not announce what they're going to be. I think sony's like. Ip slate is clear. What sony actually owns either man part of that interesting. I think everybody tamargo. Marvin moons But i think there was something with. Sony had movie rights now marble makes the movies but sony distributes it but i think the characters owned by marvel but don't you agree that sony's ip is not crystal clear at least to me well especially without announcing what these shows are. I had no idea what that would make a. you know. I mean uncharted. And last of us were legitimately the only do that. I thought of has a theory why they would announce this without naming names might still figuring out pregnant prematurely sony and william. You might have better with this. But they're i think they're they're video game department way more higher class than their their movie studio and their production studio. I don't think sony pictures is particularly You know they're kind of like the fourth or fifth player. I think in the in the studio in the movie. Production game Obviously sony entertainment on the video game side is very well respected as developer. So i don't know if they can actually execute on this plan. We kind of talked about the riot. How we thought riot would actually which is ironic because ryan has never had anything to do with movies. But i think. I personally feel more confident riot. Being able to make a movie slash. Tv shell about league of legends. Than i am about sony which actually is in the business of making movies. Is it going to be able to have that magic s word. Synergy to in the movie and entertainment. That's so interesting. Because i have a much higher confidence in sony than riot and i'll i'll just i'll just be very simple. It's like. I actually think. Sony has blueprints or more coherent blueprint for what to do like the uncharted movie. They could literally take dialogue and scenes from the game and it would be a good movie. Like i think of uncharted. Moore's movie than a game right like they literally at the equivalent of the marvel comics story board like they can just take the game and take out the like. they're good. they're i think lee has a harder goal there because what is like. What's the story of league of legends. Jeff do you know who's the protagonist like i. I'm sure there are answers to this. And i think i might go no. I don't think anybody really does raise. Like the reality is they. Were pretty complicated. I'm taking crazy. Maybe those riots berretta blizzard and other Do i think riot can pull it off. Yes yes this is not like right. It's gonna make it. I think they're make a great movie. But i think it's much easier for sony because sony literally needs to pick an uncharted game. Get this got the script descriptive at cut it down to two hours and film it and it will be just fine. The games are designed to be like movies. They're set piece moments witty banter reasonably sharp characters and interesting relationships between them like they're gold. You know what i mean. And i think the same by the way of god of war i legitimately think than this last god of war probably might have been better as murphy in some regards like i enjoyed the story and the setpiece moment so much and the camera work was cinematic. Like half of let me the last god of war good was like how beautiful it looked and how it drew you into the narrative with immersion and and that was all i think it was all camera camera lights like perfect for though so
"joy" Discussed on Ignited by Hope
"They all have one thing in common, and that's Joy my husband, and I actually had a very powerful conversation about this very thing a couple of years ago. I was in just like this weird place of knowing that I wasn't happy, but I didn't know what would make me happy. I had lost not just my joy, but I had lost that piece of Happy. Well, I'm sure if you were to ask him hanging out with me at that point was not a whole hell of a lot of fun, but he stuck with me through the course of that conversation. I was able to figure out that this seed had been planted that I didn't deserve to be happy and that I deserved to be punished. I don't know where that idea came from but it was so deeply ingrained in my psyche that I wanted to be able to like literally go back in time wage figure out where it had come from so that I could actually change how I felt about it. I felt like I was missing pieces of the puzzle and without them I couldn't figure out that whole picture and get back into that state of Joy. His response to me was to pick a new puzzle game. Seriously pick a new puzzle. I don't remember exactly what I said to him. But I'm pretty sure that it wasn't very nice and it was probably dripping with sarcasm. This is where my husband's amazing ability to break through with his metaphors and analogies in to Thursday pist recesses of people's hearts and get ideas to click in their brains. We went through this entire conversation about how much joy is a choice and he started talking about how men often get hung up on a woman's previous Partners. Apparently they want to be the best that that woman has ever had and feel like they're lacking if they aren't but the question is what really matters them being the best or the fact that the woman They are with is choosing to be with them day in and day out regardless of what their previous Partners were like, he used this as a way to show just how much choice we have in life and how important it is that we focus on those choices that are empowering rather than disempowering. He also compared the choice of having Joy To Love. We both agree that love is an emotion and a choice because when you've been married for as long as we have, you know, darn good and well that there are days that you do not like each other. I mean, that's just that's marriage. If anybody can tell me that they may have lived a marriage where they have liked their spouse one hundred percent of the time. Please call me. Let me know how you did it. And I don't know if even then I will believe you home. Marriage is hard you guys we all know that what makes a great marriage is not the fact that it's hard and it's not the fact that you know Drive each other bunkers on certain days. It's the fact that on those days where you both need to be in your separate Corners that you don't think so in that moment how irritated you are you choose to show that person love joy is a lot like that. You can choose to focus on edge of the bad things that are going on in your life and it is going to suck your soul dry or you can focus on everything that's going off, right you can intentionally look for the blessings that exists in your life and you can also make choices that will get home. Shoot out of the situations that you're currently in that are killing your spirit. There are certain things that as adults we have to do. Well I suppose we don't have to but the consequences are going to just be astronomical if we don't do them paying bills keeping a home clean eating the right Foods..

He said this is what we talk about our time. As well. Okay our this goal, so we'll have to hear your mouth and I went and I got stuck. This exactly what? We wanted to do what we talked about. How can we challenge the system in such a way? So we're not. s again for fan of we ready. This won't track with it. One thing I want to say because Glenn. Crosses Bridge in what was that all about? Jimmy Jackson had been shot and killed. By state troopers. Okay over in Perry County. That's why we would go on. From Selma to Montgomery. The protests of the governor. Because a state, troopers were the ones who kill Jimmy Jackson will also wants who helped to stop us from going. Okay so city limits of salvo was on our side of the bridge. That's why the state troopers didn't stop us before we got on the bridge. Why. Stand, the context and the history and a what was all about? So, it was about protests and a killin of a black man. WHO's trying to protect his mother? On a night, March. Over in Perry County while they have denied March because James Arch was in jail. And they will march in so the media follow them to the jail in hopefully protect James. Sorry to interrupt you reverend, Lafayette? I just want to let our viewers know. We are seeing the case on head to the bridge right now, they will approach that bridge as I understand it. They will hold there for one moment. I don't know if our viewers are able to see as the body traveled viewers. There were there were people following the body along the journey to the Edmund pettus bridge. Still with me is historian and my my good friend Jilani. Jilani! The Reverend talk about why they were marching to protest the death of a black man, so it still creates this wrinkle in time as we transition John Lewis's body. Oh, what does this mean to you? As we see this happening given the political landscape today. And just the cultural landscape is dead. Bodies still are screen sadly. What do you make of this historic moment? I'm very glad that Dr. Lafayette mentioned Jimmy Jackson. Civil. Rights martyr that not enough people know about, but. See, the is the. Waiting for a moment with? The remains of Congressman Lewis there. It's just. Really. The fact that each one of these rights that we exercise. Any opportunity that we've had to participate in democracy in a meaningful way, every single one of those rights has been drenched in blood of people. Who have sacrificed. Cheat them. And, you can scarcely turn without another instance of it. So we're seeing right now. They're holding for that moment. We're going to listen in to watch this moment. Play out in real time. Core. Clear. John Bridge. Fit Forget about? Five. For Hungary. What. Your grabby. All right I just want to set the scene behind the casket is John Miles. That's the congressman son and Freddie Lewis. His brother, his other brothers Sam Louis Grant Lewis and his sister Rosa. Tyner and Michael Collins was his chief of staff on Capitol Hill but he. More. They were like family. Together during their their time on capitol. Hill still with me is Britney Pack Net Cunningham in the civil rights leader. Activists Reverend Dr. Bernard Lafayette Junior we only have about a few seconds left, but I just wanted to talk to you. Because a lot of people who are just learning about the movement. I don't know. But this was not the only instance of violence that Congressman Lewis face. This is where he suffered a skull fracture, but you talk about you having cracked ribs, and that Congressman John Lewis was repeatedly struck this lifelong commitment to nonviolence. Where does that come from our? Where did that come from? I should say with the congressman. It is something that happened when he was. Very Young And he made that commitment at he did not want to live under those circumstances, and the also believed that they could be changed. And that's why he applied. You Know Laverick card. And the also. Wanted to go to college there. In Alabama and ended up at American. Baptist, theological, seminary. So in the something that was in his blood, it was his conscience was at his spirit. and. While he tried to. persuade others talso join him. I'm so sorry I. Hate to interrupt you. We just WANNA. Listen in on. What's happening right now? Yes! That's right. No.

"Reverend Sharpton. You and I were talking earlier and look Congressman John. Lewis was was non. But he was certainly a fighter. And you and I have spoken about the different efforts to create equality, and we often remind our listeners when we're on the radio together that it wasn't always peaceful. They're always people who disagree with how to get there, but we just know the destination is the thing that we agree on. John Lewis Ram against his good friend Julian. Bond for Congress and they were great friends, but they had different approaches at that time. If you can talk a little bit about the discord at that time among the movement, and compare it to what's happening today as we continue this fight for equality. Believed that people try to distort history. There's always been different tactics in tactical disagreements, but everyone was always focused toward the same goal. Like I was saying earlier, I grew up a youngster under. John Lewis is and other of that. Generation and I was always a toll of the differences between us, but that we would always try to find a way to come together and common ground, so yes John Lewis ran against bond and John, Lewis one, but they were able to reconcile, and I came out of the northern part of movement under Dr, William Jones the Martin Luther. King School, but I used to always say Jesse Jackson's class I was mentioned by Jesse. I was too young, and no Dr King and that was a different school then John Lewis are different school than those that did inside baseball, democratic politics, but all of us. US were united around voting. Rights and others are issues like police brutality like our economic empowerment. Just as then we have people younger than us that are coming forward taking the reins doing it their way, and I think if your ego gets out the way you do what you do and do it to the best of your ability and hope that those that come behind do what they do to the best of their ability, and you meet the whole, and that's what John Lewis would always say to me allieu you know that you do it your way, but make sure it's effective. remained nonviolent remain non. Remain Determined, but keep your eye on the prize and I I'm honored that he spent time in poured into me and I've tried to do that. Would those behind me? And as we see his body now headed to that bridge, he goes as a victor. He goes as one that won the battle to battle and Selma Hem and Jose away of his Amiss. Boynton they won that battle? We must make sure they don't turn the victory around by not having a civil rights act now because they're trying to take defeat out of the jaws of victory that John Lewis one is not enough to commemorate him. We must continue him. I want to bring in Congressman. Lewis is a college roommate. Civil rights activists the Reverend Dr Bernard Lafayette Junior the CO founder of Snick the student nonviolent Coordinating Committee Riviera I'm so pleased to have you with me on what must be a very difficult day you? No doubt have known congressman. Lewis the longest. You you talk about how you guys were so close that your mom would send you a two suits, and and you would give him one in college, and some of us have nightmare stories about roommates in college, but you got room with Congressman Lewis Oh. Paint for us a picture of a young John Lewis when you offer. One advantage that we have was We are both from the south. and. We had the experience of growing up in a segregated. A situation, so we have something in common. So! That's why we went to relate to each other and talk about. What happened even in early childhood. Experiences where we challenged. The segregation system. I had since. in Tampa Florida ebor city. When I was. Just seven years old. And I used to be mister coffee. and Go! Over to the commercial area. And I would be able to get take orders for coffee for the merchants who are actually over up their shops. and. Our go back to the restaurant. Lonzo Violeta's. And I would. Order coffee for the merchants. And this before I went to school every morning. Okay! Yeah. so. I leaned against a stool. While I was waiting and eventually put my hip on a stool. And then I slid on the stool where the. Whether was fixing the coffee. He stared at made to mirror. And we never said anything. From that day on I sat on the stools. The experience of sitting on stools. At a very early age, so John Lewis had some challenges that he had in Troy Alabama. You know their new toy. So I. Had A great. Opportunity for us to. Share with each other. And we really. became very good friends. and He tried to get me to go to these workshops and I didn't have time to little workshops. That was always working just like I was the coffee when I was a little boy. In I'd get up at five thirty in the morning to go get that coffee and I lose a janitor, the second floor hours assistant librarian and ended up being librarian because the librarian had. Complicated troubles. Pregnancy, but anyway John Lewis said listen. You need to come to these workshops James Awesome. Journey was doing the workshops and I just said I'll. Have to half that.

And again and again in observance of that day. On the fiftieth anniversary of the bloody Sunday March. He marched alongside the first black president of the United States of America, and he did it again this year just a few months ago, proving that he never gave up the fight. On the FROG Both.

We saw the players leave the floor. Go back to their respective locker rooms. One of those actions we'll see throughout the season as part of the Social Justice Initiative Yeah first of many ways that we will see wnba plays players using their voices all season long. This is nothing new for these women. They have been proactive when it comes to speaking out on social injustices for the life of the WNBA. Sports comeback. In America, the black lives matter movement has never had more visibility. Almost every major league baseball game has featured nearing players during the tradition of the National Anthem and the traditional Colin Kaepernick as well, and as you just saw players from the New York. Liberty and the Seattle storm of the WNBA left the court before the anthem played those same wnba stars also took it to another level by wearing Brianna Taylor's name on their jerseys, and holding a moment of silence to start. The Game Espn Journalists Holly Rowe spoke with Brianna mother to Meka Palmer before the game and filed this report. I spoke with her mother to Meka Palmer today, and she said she could light up the room with her smile. She actually loved basketball. She played in middle school and high school. Her personality was infectious. She was a beautiful power of force for the world. She said when these WNBA. Players reached out to me to honor her in this way. I felt loved. I'm amazed that these women will say her name and support me in this fight for justice. It is beautiful the support of women black women. Women, period I know that when she takes the stage, she would light up the sky with her smile, and her spirit is with everyone today represented by these women on their jerseys. Many are giving up hope. Millions worry that a loved one won't survive covid nineteen. There's morning in America. And under the leadership of Donald Trump. Our country's weaker and sicker and poor. And now Americans are asking. If we have another four years like this. Will there even be an American? The group behind these powerful ominous ads you've been saying isn't the Biden campaign or even the Democratic Party, but the Lincoln projects aband- never trump republicans determined to sink the president's re election. Come November! That isn't the only deadline they're up against. Though in one hundred days, if America Chooses Biden, these never trump conservatives will occupy a very unique and uncomfortable role in American politics either they returned to kiss him. Their parties rating or they roll up their sleeves that transformed the GOP joining me now to discuss all this and more is democratic pollster. My friend for Non Mandi Business and political marketing consultant Teradata del Charlie. Sykes editor in chief of the bullwork. Normally I like to ladies first, but I'm actually going to turn a you on this Lynch Charlie. Because I'm really interested. Since you occupied this never trumper seats, and I referenced the An op-ed that you wrote in The New York Times in two teen that I read that I found really interesting. Because in that bed, you talk about how the right wing went wrong and you say that you helped advance the careers. Careers of of Conservatives like Paul Ryan and Scott Walker and I have to tell you I've been in politics a long time and I think some of those careers you helped advance start with trump. This problem was in the Republican Party. Long before trump ever took office so now that we're hearing this moment. How do you reconcile the past? And what do you see the future looking like for? Some of these never-trumpers like yourself? Yeah No, it's been a painful process. There's no question about it that down. Trump reflects a pre existing condition. That dysfunction didn't just occur in twenty sixteen, so I think we have to have a reckoning and right now I think look The House is on fire, and we need to put out the fire, and we'll worry about the redecorating later and I. do think that one of the things it's on. The ballot is not just trumpets trumpism. It's what's happened to the Republican Party and whether or not we can create a new coalition of the decent We may not agree on all policy issues, but I think we do agree on what values actually. Actually matter the most decency empathy, the rule of law inclusion of those things, and so yes, we may be temporary allies right now, but we are allies a crucial moment in American democracy. If Donald Trump is I, think an is essential threat to our democracy. This is a moment where at least for the moment let's put aside our differences and focus on what we agree on, and then go back and think okay. What did we get long? And what are we have to fix because you know what when Donald Trump leaves the White House the Trumpian cancer on the right, it does not go away and so we have to confront both of those things. All right here I want to ask you so Charlie says the house is on fire. Let's worry about redecorating later. I got some trust issues. Okay so. AM curious because. The enemy of my enemy, my friend now are they still my enemy. What does that look like and I imagine there are a lot of other people with trust issues. What are you seeing for this post?

"You and your family protected and hopefully give you one less thing to worry about. Try it today. Now that Senate Republicans have finally woken up to the calamity in our country. They have been so divided so disorganized so unprepared. They've struggled to even draft a partisan proposal within their own conference. They can't come together. Even after all this time. It appears the Republican legislative response to Kobe is in unified. Unserious. Unsatisfactory. Good morning and welcome to am joy I'm tiffany cross. As today we are officially one hundred days away from the election that will decide Donald Trump's fate and hours just moments ago, NBC News and Mars College released a poll of registered voters in Arizona, a state trump won by three and a half points in two thousand sixteen will now not only. Is He trailing? Joe Biden by five points in a match. Match up, but on the Senate side Democratic candidate Mark Kelly is leading his Republican challenger, Martha mcsally by twelve points as you just heard Chuck Schumer, explain the Senate Republicans do not appear to have what it takes to effectively govern, and now according to the Cook Political. Report the Democrats are favored to retake the Senate with competitive races in previously Ruby red states like Georgia where I grew up in Iowa. So while the presidential election tends to take up all the oxygen, the importance of these Senate races cannot be overstated if dim take the White House, but Republicans keep the Senate good luck, passing meaningful legislation or confirming that black woman to the Supreme Court that Joe Biden has promised or shaping a democratic cabinet. Trump wouldn't even be on the ballot if I prob- The Republican. Controlled Senate led by itself, proclaimed grim reaper Mitch McConnell shows the country over there Maga- loyalist party when forty five was impeached, and it's because Republicans control the Senate that. They were able to get away with this. One of my proudest. LOOKED AT ROCK OBAMA SAID MR, president. You will not feel the supreme. Court vacancy. And it's because Republicans control the Senate that they were able to ignore their constitutional duty and dismissed the impeachment trial from the GECKO. This thing will come to the Senate, and it will die quickly and I will do everything. I can to make it die quickly. I am trying to give a pretty clear signal. I made up my mind. I'm not. Here. We will have a lot more on the Senate races in just a few minutes, but first MSNB host alley vel she, one of my favorite people traveled to Pennsylvania to talk to some voters in that key battleground state. Take a look at some of what they had to say about Donald Trump. Just been so disappointed. What's been going on in this country for the last four years? The leadership. It's just been week as far as I'm concerned I've never been a big trump cheerleader. On frequently dismayed by his lack of presidential decorum, but on the other hand he's a manager and I like the way he's managing. You know the president setting a tone that that it my four year old I would pull them aside and say. Don't you ever speak to somebody that way? That's not a constructive dialogue. You're not going to change somebody's mind. There's just a need to for hard pivot in leadership in order to do that. We cannot sustain this for another four years. And is joining me now. Is Ali relatively one of my favorite people I'm so excited to screen with you a great work talking to those voters there and I have to ask you so the former GOP chair rob gleason said that the. Trump is pretty much immovable. Pennsylvania he said the bigger the controversy, the more trump flags and signs go up. What what do you make of this? Yeah I've seen a few of them on the drive. Here as you know I, spend my weekends. In fact I'm here most of the time in Pennsylvania, but I'm an hour away from where I am in Bethlehem. And and you see a lot of that and that conversation that I had with six residents of Bucks County three of them. Were Democrats lear the more Republicans and they didn't. They didn't agree on stuff. It's like they were in slightly different universes their entire. Life experience was different. What I thought was useful as they were listening to each other, they were sort of talking to each other. They weren't arguing with each other, but it does seem that they get their information from entirely different bubbles and I think that's what part of the issue is so somebody makes a point here in. Somebody makes a point there, but they're not actually talking with each other. Hit the bottom line in a place like Pennsylvania though is is many fault. One is that it is a more diverse place than it looks like even in the rural and suburban areas number two this I'm in front of a steel plant. Plant, industrial, America, or Post Industrial America, and this is where Donald Trump and by the way Bernie Sanders were trying to appeal to voters to say I can help revive this. I can make us into manufacturing country again. Donald Trump had a ham fisted way of doing that with his trade policy, which ended US getting ended up getting into a trade war, but the fact is, it is forty or fifty years of trade policy that has made these jobs. Go Away, and we didn't do anything about it for any of these people. So what I think is that there's a real sense of you all cheated me to some degree. Who's going to be. Be Most honest about how these jobs are coming back four years ago. Donald Trump won the support of these people. If you take out those people who supported Donald Trump because rhetoric, and because of racism, there were workers who said maybe he can do something he couldn't do it. While the going was good now with one hundred days to go into recession in pandemic that he's getting very low marks for handling most people are starting to say he probably can't do it now, but remember tiffany the beauty about being out here as opposed to being in there in the studio. is every time I'm out here I realize people are not reading. Reading the broad cross section of stuff. They're not watching a broad section of TV. Like even you and I consume. They're watching what they watch. They're getting the message they're getting. And that's what's resonating, but I think we need to be out here more talking to people and before I go i. just have to tell you I have been watching you on their the best part about it is that you're? They're the worst part about it is. We have back back shows that we never get to talk to each other so if you could talk to your producers about changing that, because one of the best things about my job is talking to you. Thank you so much, Elliot. I love it I. Love Talking to you and I'm GonNa. Keep you for one more second before you go because they have to ask. In philly, the black voters in two thousand twelve really made the difference there came out for Obama is also not lost on me that this is Joe Biden's home state. This is where he was born, and he likes to tout his scrappy upbringing in Scranton I wonder how those two things will play. Do you think the black voters in Philly will come out this time for Joe Biden tickets? I actually think they do what you've seen in Philadelphia. Including in the two thousand eighteen election in is an expansion of the the grip. The Democrats have on the city's in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. You've seen that now. Starting to spread to the collar counties remember we talked about suburban people. Well. That's what Philadelphia has got. A lot of those kinds of suburbs, and they are more blue than red right now..
Balancing Our News Intake During The Pandemic
"Today i wanted to focus on. I think a really important passage of scripture philippians four eight that i think really helps us during this season. I don't know about you but me one of the issues dealt with over the last couple of months is how we balance our news intake. I always been a kind of news junkie. Ever since i was a kid. We got three newspapers that came to our house. I would read the sports section and the front page every day. Now of course That's transferred to things like social media twitter and facebook and it can be so easy to kind of get absorbed into the new cycle particularly in this time of pandemic. We're really trying to say okay. What's new what's what's opening up. What new decisions have made. What new drugs are being going through. Clinical trials what the new numbers going up down. What do people think what crazy things are people doing or not doing and i have found myself that it's very easy to get sucked into that. In such a way that we can kind of get either really fearful about what's going on and so fearful and angry an restless or we can get very cynical and distrusting steal our joy in. I've had a remind myself to kinda back away from those mediums. Put him down for a while And concentrate what's on. What's in front of me.

"But Tisch James has already now one she's poised to win statewide office. Her opponents, an unknown. Also African American, I should note, but the New York AG is chinamen was believed. He has potential be governor. So Tisch James is actually positioning herself to be a national figure completely and her predecessor Schneiderman. I mean. He had been targeting Donald Trump long before he even got into the office at the presidency. He was going after his businesses and really one of the faces of the movement. So, yeah, I completely think this James is going to be a national figure along with the other attorney generals and I think you're gonna see. The way that she works in the level, you're going to see her have some strong allies in congress as well. The health flips the net subpoena power is going to come back to a lot of Democrats, and I think Elisa Cummings probably has a big pile of them on his desk. Rego. We'll all of those ranking members who would become chairman, Adam Maxine Waters. I just don't talk about it. A lot see waters is sitting in ranking member seat. You've got Adam shifts sitting in the ranking member chair at at at house until what if the Democratic Party talk about who would be elevated in these midterms? I think I do think they try. I people get mad when I say this and I'm not talking about the audience. I'm not talking about you audience at home, watching joy Reid because you're obviously very engaged, but a lot of people don't pay attention to the minutia of this, and a lot of people don't understand. So let's see your point about. We thought this is going to happen during the Obama administration. I think a lot of people felt like, no, we've gotta Barack Obama's. We'll be okay. I think that the pendulum has swung so far right are just now starting to pay attention, but it's not just that the Democrats aren't talking about it. It's at the media also isn't talking Gaiman well, dressed. True, fair, fair point. And you know what? A lot of it would have happened if some people would have voted in two thousand ten to twenty fourteen instead of staying home and waiting for Bronco momma to work all the miracles all by himself. Tiffany will be back in our next hour more than the break..

"It's three card Monte because you also have a Puerto Rican community that is growing really quickly. That's in the crucial. I four corridor that's numerically large and could get larger every time people come from the island to the mainland and then can vote in federal elections, so they have to play this game. So you have Rhonda Santa's courting voters in Puerto Rico on in August going there to stump for those votes. So they have to do both, right? They have to say, oh, we want to build a wealth of these Hispanic voters, but we like these rights Banik. The thing is joy for Latinos and Latinas across the country. Yet. Again, it's another moment where it is so clear and it's really hard as journalists to have to say this, right? But from a journalistic perspective, based on the words coming out of this president's mouth and the policies that follow, we kind of let the notion that in a moment where it's like, whoa, no seriously on the border. They are denying American citizens who are letting you know some Latinas, their passports. They're just denying. They're saying, no, you were. That's not true that you were really born here your midwife. Show me your midwives, paper, et cetera. There denying that you know, whether I actually tweeted, I said, it looks like this president really doesn't care about our lives, whether we're in cages where there were in freezers in those immigrant detention camps, or whether we are dead in Puerto Rico, we have now been exactly denied our existence negated. And I think for us, it's kind of like the shock of making the connections also because you know, money from FEMA was put into ice, we're not gonna save let the. Latin lives, but we will put them in immigrant attention facilities that ultimately are going to make money fry people for private Brazil. For us, it's really just another one. And I think for the rest of the country, it's an, it's a learning opportunity to open your eyes to what is happening and to not be shocked that this is happening. It is real and therefore protect your, let the let the brothers and sisters and people of color in this country. We need that support from each other. If we're not going to get it, obviously not from this government. And I mean Kurt at the same time, there's the human imperative. But for your former political party for the Republican party, they know that it doesn't really change their behavior, but they do also want these votes. They love to tout, but Donald Trump got twenty seven percent of the expanding vote in the election, Rick Scott got a minority of Hispanic votes, but he got enough to sneak barely over the line to become governor. And now you have the two men running to replace him Ron to Santa. So we showed earlier and Andrew gillum Gillam up. I mean, he was up a little. Now he's a Balat like that's actually outside the margin of error..

"Court. Surely we can find a better resolution. Now, as you see in the book, I had tremendous amount of respect for Donald. I did not know David pecker was his good friend, nor did I know this practice of catch and kill these stories, or in this case, try to put down a lawsuit. And so after the negotiation as you'll see unhinged, yes. I ended up becoming the west coast editor of ok magazine and reality weekly and working for David pecker for two years. And that's a whole separate book. Joy could write about working for David pecker and publications like the Enquirer and star magazine. I'm sure I'm you talk about befriending David Cohen early on before the campaign. Were you surprised in Michael? Sorry, Michael Meikeljohn. Yeah. Were you surprised when he turned on Donald Trump? First of all, I adore Michael Cohen. Have never hit that. I think you see that how much I adore him in the book, and I am sad to see him going through easy going through ideas, wife, his daughter was my intern at the White House. She's brilliant. I am really, really sat and moreover to see Donald Trump kick Michael Cohen while he's down while praising Paul Manafort. I mean, Michael Cohen did everything he was asked to do. He was directed to make those payments by the president United States. He was completely loyal. He was a loyal soldier carrying out all of the things that he was instructed to do by Donald Trump who's general. And do you think that he has evidence that would be material to the Russia gate portion of the Muller gate investigation, he has that and much more Michael Cohen. Note all about all of Donald Trump's dirty secrets, all his thirty deals all of his corruption, and I'm glad that Michael Cohen is going to actually participate and cooperate with these investigations because the American people. Have a right to know what's going on who truly they elected to be president United States. You know, other players in the Donald Trump universe that you do write about in the book. Who else do you think might come forward? You know, Keith Schiller. Who was Donald Trump's? Longtime bodyguard. Do you think that he is somebody that might come forward? Are there others. The ski signed one of those agreements that they offered me. I believe he's being paid fifteen thousand dollars a month. When you sign on you, sign this incredible India does not allow you to talk or share those stories. And so essentially he's been silent. I don't know what he can and can't do under that agreement. But all I know is he did enter an agreement that does not allow him to talk in any negative way about Donald Trump. And you say in the book that you were made uncomfortable by Paul Manafort when he came onto the campaign, why? Well, Paul Manafort was always looking out for himself. He never talked about how this could advance the campaign. He always tried to position as to how different decisions and policy could help to event him and Rick gates. And even when I talked to him about issues that were concerning to African community, he was very dismissive because he didn't see the end game for him. I wanna come back to you. I know somebody who knows who's for a long time who would found out that I was gonna be talking to you, head of things that they wanted to know. I'm just having no new back in the day when I'm not gonna tell you two. And one of the questions I had one of these tell me who it is, what are the questions that they had? Lots of people have asked me questions. Oh, please ask Marotta this and a lot of them revolve around things like the central park five. You studied Donald Trump and you studied to. He was very honest in the book about seeing his misogyny about watching him on the set, be very vulgar toward women about him being creepy toward his daughter, and so you didn't know the negatives at the time as well as the positives on race..
