"Is that if you're coming to a work and you're willing to learn more about it. That's a win right if you're coming to a work set like if you can look at a painting or something or even like there was this Davinci piece came up. Up to auction was sold for all these millions of dollars, and it's Kinda cool that someone can be like. I don't like that Davinci, like I know that it's worth twenty eight million dollars. You know now that it's gone to auction in this way but I. don't think it's his best vinci or not so interested in that work at actually rather look at like you know this other painter whatever I think being able to operate from a space of agency. Agency around our I. Guess That's what my point is. The agency part to me is the best thing because artists intention. Yeah, that's a really valuable bit of information and people dedicate their careers building monographs to building exhibitions to recording these really necessary and vital stories about a work of art, but I think as a as a visitor to these works the that confidence to visit a work that confidence to make your own decision I think is equally important. And I think that gets lost when we're like well. Do I get smart enough? Am I this infor- that enough to have his encounter. I think that's such. A great point and I also think that people are able to look at a thousand things. They're able to walk into the gap in like say if they like or don't like a teacher, but they feel more uncomfortable looking at a work of art, and saying I don't like it or like a song. If I put on a song, and you don't like it can. You can change the song. People don't feel that same car or like you taste A. Vegan pizza and you're like I want real cheese. You know those things don't happen in the same way with our end so beyond whether you get it or not. And I and I don't. I don't mean to push back so much, but I'm like beyond whether you get an. It's like you're there like you're learning. That is what institutions at their best can do. These are institutions of learning. It's not about everything that you know. Once you get there. It's really like your ability to take things in that's. Exciting just before we wrap up this section when you look a piece of art, what are you looking for? Are you looking to feel something? Or what is your priority? I think when I'm encountering a work of art. I kind of go in hopefully with a blank slate like I realized the other like a few months ago, I was looking at this painters show that I love and I was hungry and I just I left exhibition. I was like I'm not in the right place. I gotTA. Go like love you. League Krassner, but I gotta find lunch because I can't do this, but for the most part, try to come in with a base level of just like okay. I'm ready to receive because it is like a sensory experience. Right like you. WanNa be in the right head space to take things in. But what am I looking for I? Don't know I think sometimes. It's a story I really do love stories and who the artist is when they made those things fascinating. Excite me, but I know that's not everyone's truth. But for me I kind of end blown away where it's like you know those little details of this work was. Made here for this reason or this color is no longer made because there's this like we're toxin in the like those types of things I'm really thrilled by. Because those are the things that kind of like stick to my ribs I always like have gravitated towards like Jackson pollock, which sounds cliche..

"All right. Welcome back everybody. It's time for a good news block. We made it. We made it take it away already. Okay good news so I got I got. I got a little bit So ten Reuters has conducted extensive review of pulling data and has found that interest in voting in twenty twenty is surging in urban areas dominated by Democrats faster than in trump supporting areas Lilia so even as trump commands rock solid support among Republicans voters interest in going to the polls appears to be growing faster among those who disapprove trump than those who approve of him. The advantage and urban political engagement extends deep into the most competitive battleground states that trump won by razor thin margins. One factor that led to trump's defeat of Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen was lower turnout in mid western cities such as Detroit and Milwaukee. But there are indications that trend is reversing for years later in large urban areas of the upper midwest a region that includes swing states like Michigan and Wisconsin for example the number of people who said they were certain to vote in the upcoming election. Rose by ten points positive. This is good news. It's working. We love hearing that can happening. And everybody's doing you know you see this blue wave thing a lot and I just try to believe it. Yeah yeah believing that blue. Oh absolutely so. Yeah so. That's good news so city cities that where we need people to show APP. It's it looks like voter turnout's GonNa Increase Right. Yeah so it's it's it is really good news. I mean this poll suggests that people in cities where we need people to show up in big cities where instincts were trump on the last time people are going to show up and vote in bigger numbers this time. So that's really encouraging to me and makes me feel happy. Puts a tiny serotonin. In my brain yes serotonin towed let could yes. Yes I think That makes sense to when you just think about four years of this president and how his policies have consequences well and in his tone in his dogma in the worst way has effects on everybody and it has effects on the American psyche that I think are undeniable. Just outside of you know whatever policy being talked about. There's a tangible difference in the atmosphere in this country. Now because he's the president absolutely. It's embarrassing first off for our country it's harmful to a lot of people Arguably you know everybody that's not profiting off of whatever whoever he's bed with but it's really really encouraging. That's an awesome story. I have one more for you. This is a kind of I've I worked in tech on for a lot of the last decade into this one is a personal interest. Me We talk a lot about how silicon valley's like Uber Capitalist. But actually the the workers a kickstarter have created the first Tech Industry Union. Oh yeah so. They made history on Tuesday when they voted to unionize making them the first in the industry to do so marking a huge grassroots victory milestone tech workers in the tech industry. That is very cool. He's cool Kickstarter united is the first unit. White-collar fulltime workers in the tech sector and includes designers writers engineers and software developers so following along fight to form a union through the Office of Professional Employees International Union. Kickstarter workers plan to head to the to the table to with management to discuss pay equity diversity in hiring et. Cetera ET CETERA. But this is exciting because you know industries like the video game industry in the tech industry are in desperate need of some regulation. There's a lot of abuse of workers in in those industries so that was really encouraging community and You know I hope that I in response to this. More tech companies and more video game companies will start treating their workers with more respect. Yeah that's incredible. I worked in a little bit as well and I am not gonNA say Where I'm not trying to ship everything but I will say that especially fresh out of college workers yet big it exploited as fuck in a lot of companies. I mean I've had to say in interviews before No I'm not going to work sixty hours a week for you for that amount of money. Right they get you yet a salary that is like below thirty thousand dollars sometimes. And you're expected to put in over forty hours a week. It's pretty crazy and that's awesome. Yeah yeah and that's Duffy I mean startups. Startups are obviously all told by nature. And I think that that's why they've been able to get away with that for so long because startup. You're right. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah I think it's for the for the medium to large tech companies so very exciting. So hopefully that marks this marks a bit of a sea change but yeah that's awesome. I have one good story. Okay So this broke today. Eleven circuits upheld. A broad interpretation of Florida Rian Franchise Law that says states cannot require fines before registering those unable to bay. So that's yeah so that's that's a win. Four orders yes. Yes when for voters It happens to come one day after the registration deadline to vote in the primaries though one day after yeah. So that's a bummer. And I'm sorry that I let that slip into the quick a personal story. Just a personal story I What is the personal good story? I bought my dog. I have a video of my dog wearing a dinosaur onesie.

"All right. Welcome back it's time for our b-black of hot notes. Manda take it away. I will already thank you. So trump is gonNA START SOON. More people over the muller pub gravely maybe according to his tweets great so on Tuesday or yesterday for us right now trump said he was going to order lawsuits quote unquote all over the place for Doc. I ordered. He's all over the place. Jamie pollock those lawsuits for claims. He incurred for for damages. He claims he incurred during former special counsel. Robert Muller's investigation in a tweet thread which I love saying in reference to the president. Our Dear Leader said these muller prosecutors and the whole Mueller investigation was legally setup based on a phony now fully discredited fake dossier lying and forging documents to the Fisa court and many other things. I'm glad he's saying new thing. Everything having to do with this fraudulent investigation as badly tainted and in my opinion should be thrown out. He then went on. What do you mean? What does he mean thrown out? Yeah what what. What does that even mean? I guess like if he's talking about like the Stones Duffin manafort style or is he talking about the investigation as a whole he. I think that it well okay. I'm a little bit more okay. So he then went on to accuse me of lying before Congress when he told lawmakers he did not interview with trump to apply for the job of FBI director tweeting. The whole deal was a total scam. If I wasn't president I'd be suing everyone all over the place. But maybe I still will witch-hunt. Oh my God yeah. So these tweets all came on the same day in which trump declared himself the quote unquote chief law enforcement officer in all the land. Those and announced all the controversial pardons. We talked about on the show yesterday which we aptly called. Pardon Palooza it's also worth noting that two of the attorneys who prosecuted the stone case. Who trump just meddled in where previously investigators on the special counsel. I'm waiting on real torey much waiting on bill bar to follow trump's lead in announced unjust legal action on people connected to the muller pro now because despite his public scolding of the President Trump tweeted Friday that he has the quote unquote legal right to demand that Bartik action in a federal criminal case but that he quote unquote chooses to stay out of it. Okay Bro Restraint. That's what I think of when I think of Donald Trump westering mazing restraint patients. Yes decision making. Yeah so that's just some news on a fun little red. Yeah well we'll see I mean the thing that's scary about that. Is he could totally do that. Yes so we were laughing but it's not funny right because we left so we don't cry e-eh definitely and especially I mean know that there's that whole Taco bar resigning or whatever and we'll get into that later but assuming he stays he will do whatever the fuck trump wants So yeah that's what makes it scary. Yup It's not just a tweet. It is not just a tweet no In other trump news this time to do with the border in news. It shouldn't shock anyone. Given his appreciation for lawlessness. Trump is waving otherwise strict rules on government procurement in order to get more of his wall built faster and appease more of his base ahead of the two thousand twenty election the Department of Homeland Security said on Tuesday that one hundred seventy seven miles of wall. A distance that includes stretches of the border in California Arizona New Mexico and Texas. We'll be able to be built faster. Because of these waivers that trump has announced the waivers affect things like requiring open competition and justifying your selections Working closely with the Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security the Department of Homeland Security is exercising. Its congressionally granted authority to waive procurement regulations in six high-traffic border sectors. Which will allow us to use already. Vetted inexperienced contractors to build additional one hundred and seventy seven miles of new border wall system. D H s spokes person Heather Swift said and acting acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf Grad Chad Wolf announced and that sounds like Vauxhall Events Fox and friends is basically just like how the trump administration does. It's press announcements yet. Just one one hour at a time. Right Chad Wolf said that. He's able to order such waivers under a two thousand five law that grants. The chief considerable purview to waive laws for building border barriers for national security rights. It's worth noting however that while such waivers have been used before to skirt around environmental impact reviews. This is the first time they have been used to fully sidestep federal procurement laws. According to the hell so the. White House now expects that ninety four miles border wall will be able to be constructed this year bringing the total to almost four hundred and fifty miles trunk. Trump took office so. I'm really glad we're speeding up. This process a racist can work quickly lobe native burial grounds right like the ones that are currently blowing up in organ pipe. Cactus National Monument and related to that Ted Norris Jr. the chairman of the fuck this up to hone oh oho ODEM nation Said the entire project was senseless destruction of ancestral land and said they were adamantly opposed to the construction of the fortified border wall. Which were Iraq readily Blah Blah Blah? Well doing great yeah. It was hard and cultural sites secret sites and the environment. It is all the more tragic that billions of taxpayer dollars are being wasted on an empty campaign slogan that will do little to address. Border Security Challenges. God that's really Saturn. Exactly what he said he was GONNA do. Yeah fuck taking away all the regulations So there's that yeah well you know. He couldn't get his wall built without doing that So I guess the only way to build walls to tear down the lot of the wall of laws the Law Wall Wall. The law wall moving on. Yeah Yeah. Let's not dwell on that depressing. Yeah I think It is dwell. Just I say please. It's your show twelve the border especially being in San Diego. It's like our neighbor and they're such fucked up stuff happening there every single day. Annalong borders all around the United States. But there is so much so many scary scary really really sad things happening all the time. It's like you someone tweeted at. Hey guys can you cover you know? Can you please continue to cover? What's happening at the border? They sent us pictures. They were there at the border. And it's like kids literally in shackles and just the conditions that they're in his inexcusable. And Not Okay and not representative of the American dream in any way whatsoever in the fact that you know it's like yeah something I'd we will do. A bigger block on it You know but not today but another day but it's happening every single day and it's really really tragic and I would say though that one of the great things about living in San Diego is guess we're so close to all of this like pain family separation but we are also in a city that is filled with a lot of amazing people of color and a lot of immigration activists and a lot of a lot of human rights activists. Yeah here which is which is an amazing thing. Yeah they're inviting every single day like with everything they have. Yeah so yeah. That's something that I feel very grateful to be near and I'm glad that I live in such a diverse city I think that living in really diversities over the last decade has really shaped who I am as a person so I feel lucky to live in saint for that reason. Yeah totally yeah. There's a lot of really great organizations here that are doing like you said all their own grassroots work and doing it amidst you know people fighting back not wanting them to do it. For example we've talked about the folks that leave water in the middle of the desert because people just die. They're on their track and people tried to say they're not allowed to do that. And it's disgusting. The amount of fights that they have to push through to even be advocates because the government isn't doing the job that yes that they have that they're supposed to be doing which is literally yes making it so people don't die trying to cross over here. It's unnecessary cruelty. Yeah it really is but you're totally right. There's a lot of amazing resources in San Diego. There's a lot of really great some incredibly uplifting moments like I've there's like networks of people all over the country to that don't live close to the border dinner helping connect people like. I've seen so many stories of Someone like Hey. This person is looking for you know like a house to crash in while they're figuring out the immense amount of paperwork and legal battles that they have to go through and I've seen people connect people with homes and and families be like you know relocated to places that are safer and there's there's so much good work but there's still so much bad bad bad horrible things happening so Donate ten your Eyes Open. Keep Your Eyes Open donate will do a better job at continually the and I hope that Anna and I actually hope that by the time that this episode areas that maybe there's going to be a question asked about this at the Nevada debate. It's important and I hopefully given the electorate there it will be. It will be a an issue. Yes talked about. Yeah Definitely Yeah. Thank you so much. Yeah your fantastic reporting thank you. Yes thank you. Okay my block part of this dock bar story It never ends Senate Republicans. Okay so you know how bars been the. There's all talk about him. Potentially you know resigning Which is to be determined if it's genuine or not? There's different theories on that but I don't think he's GonNa yeah I don't know but apparently Senate Republicans are crying for Barter. Stay saying that it's virtually impossible to get to seat a a g and to get them confirmed in anyone that replaces bar won't do as good of a job as far as doing pursuing trump's agenda bars allegedly considering resigning but there's a lot of different theories and skepticism like I said around what's really going on there This is a statement by Senator John. Cornyn Cornyn from Texas. He said the president does have a tendency to lash out and I think in this case he would be well advised to try to temper that because I think bill bars is best path on seeing that justice is done in terms of all of these various investigations including the counterintelligence investigation and elite up to the Miller report discussing. I hate hearing that. I hate hearing all of this. But Republicans are really hoping that he can just stay third till the twenty Tony Election's over because basically What it sounds like is confirmations are really contentious and there are some pretty vulnerable. Republicans that are trying to keep their seats in the fears. Basically that their vote and how that process goes the confirmation process That could affect their reelection campaigns. So you know selfish reasons. Of course they say it's for trump's agenda but really it so they don't have to like you know speak with their own mouth and their own brain because that opens them up to scrutiny and they don't like Yeah they just want to join this wave of you know the Republicans and never have to actually come out and stand for anything because when they tried to stand for something. That's anything involving a nuanced opinion. I guess it is a go well for them. 'cause that's not something that's rewarded the Republican Party. No one likes that thinks for themselves Bar apparently chatted with Lindsey Graham yesterday but he said that he has no plans to leave his post. When he talked to Lindsey Graham. So I think you're right. I don't think he's going anywhere. I think this is just like yeah. I mean the whole if it is a scheme the scheme will be revealed. I think eventually but I I don't think I definitely don't think that he's GonNa leave. I don't I just don't see how that would make any sense Finally Richard Grenell is going to be named that acting deny it looks so you know how we were talking about. Maguire's time getting up His deadline to get the fuck out coming up. And everyone's wondering which I was going to do well. Richard Grenell seems to be the guy. He's a trump loyalist and what he has not served in any intelligence agencies ever. Wow so the director of national intelligence is going to be someone with zero intelligence experience great and it was one thing when it was the head of our education department. Ride someone that had no public. Ed Experience this is now someone that is going to be leading. You know everything that essentially keeps us safe. It's incredibly concerning. Yeah Yeah it's exactly what I think we've come to expect so maybe this piece of news and like a huge blow necessarily To to our ears but because it's just so predictable but it's it's really really bad. It's really fucking bad Olive is continuously bad. We have good news coming up. We do have a lot of good news coming out. Yeah but but yeah I think you can expect that guy to get confirmed on. Or he doesn't have to get confirmed he just gets to be named..

"Hard to believe if this steph continues to happen then caucuses will continue right. Yeah I remember learning about it as a kid being like I mean. I think that's mostly everyone's reaction just what yeah. Okay it's Kinda strange Yeah there's a lot of like early caucus voting that's happened in Nevada uh-huh and that's interesting to me. I wonder if the lot yeah really. High amounts early voting in Nevada. I wonder if there's anything to be said for the psychology of like not having the physical presence there and just having done by essentially paper voting. Because you know pointed. The pockets pointed the pockets. Point of the caucus are a point of this is every go is to persuade the people around you. I'm curious you know just. Psychologically this isn't quantifiable unfortunately but to see if that actually has some sort of a subconscious offensive operations in the cockpit. Yeah like if you are. If you don't feel like you're being shamed by people around you that new do it ahead of time. Yes or like. If it's yeah ten people you know yelling at you instead of like twenty. Which one is more persuasive? Yeah not yelling all right. I'm sure it's all Nice But yeah and then Just last kind of little tidbit that I think is interesting that I saw just in the whole debate. News trump came out and said that he thinks Came out is like a weird way to say it was one of his like yellow reporter comments not yellow copter. A different yell in a room But he said the DNC is things DNC is gonNA steal the nomination for Birdie. Basically is what he said. And I'm not sure what his angle is on saying that yeah well. I think it's to depress voter turnout onto discourage people from showing up young people angry. They're also a lot of people that are like Bernie or trump people which is so fucking there are there are there. Is that group of people. Yeah you don't think it's as I don't think it's huge but it does exist it does exist and I don't think it's huge either but whether it's people that are burning trump people or maybe people that are just burning people. I wonder if yeah part of his angle was. Let me say something. That's going to ring true with these supporters. Maybe they'll be more sympathetic to me if I say that. Yeah as opposed to voting for you. Know like a Bloomberg boost. Yes something burning doesn't get the nomination. Maybe trump is thinking these people remember that I said then and then they'll come and vote for me. Yeah even if they don't currently identifiers Bernie or trump people who knows and interesting. Yes all right. Well that's debate stuff and campaign stuff. We will be right back with some more hot notes. After this.

"Get right to the hot nuts notes all right so up. I two biggest news of the day is the democratic debates. And that's Those are going to be tonight if you're listening tonight as a patron tonight if you're listening as he played in tomorrow there's Day they've already happened yet and I think it's fair to say that this might be the most anticipated debate so far absolutely. Yeah because we finally get to see my Bloomberg on stage yet after. He effectively opted out campaigning. In the state to the first few primaries and caucuses wasn't even on the ballot at all and He's not on the Nevada bell either so he's gotten quite reputation for buying his way into the races on that are happening. Super Tuesday. Yeah interesting to see him to beating. Stay where he's not even eligible. He's not even on the ballot. Yeah do you remember. Joe Biden's reaction that I came out. He was like what he yeah. He's not even on the ballot. This is weird okay fine. So he's going to be there. It's it's just also funky. I can't the DNA fuck is very funky the DNC rule change shows makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. I mean it makes sense if you have a friend that you're trying to get into the election. I'm sorry I'm trying so hard to not be negative about any of the candidates. Doing a great job is just so fucking weird like I. I think that it's okay to have complex feelings about this like anyone's better than trump but to have bad feelings about someone who is doing things that we as progressives don't necessarily support yeah being said yes that being said best wishes be best but yeah Buddha. Judge clubs are burning album said last night at the presidential town hall. They all like did their own thing on CNN They all said that. They don't think Bloomberg should have the right to buy his way into the election so they're pretty pissed. Yeah everybody's very pissed about that lately. I think it's unfair and fucked up and They're really Jones convergence to attack him right now so by the way is worth so much money like sixty billion dollars or something. Sorry what was that. A six million is is what is what is what. Bloomberg is worth. Oh Jesus Christ yeah. They say that doesn't seem to be interesting. I think this is probably it's kind of a pivotal one right Because it's all about to change after Nevada after Super Tuesday like should getting really real so this is a really really important debate and I'm very curious to see what happens later. And by the time this airs for everyone what will have happened. But I'm I'm you know the thing is that people are GonNa want to go after Bloomberg but they're also going to need to go after Bernie but Bloomberg kind of proves Bernie's points in a Lotta ways so I don't know it's fascinating. I think for instance some extent. Yeah I think so too. It's just Y- Bloomberg has such a massive target on his back right now because he's got the target for multiple reasons one Like I said he's got that immense scrutiny on him due to all the money that poured into states last minute That looks like it's actually resulted in him. Surging some polls handsome very interesting some national polls. Yeah it's fucking weird Fucking weird. That's what's happening but yeah I think it's it's very sort of. I don't think anybody knows how to interpret it exactly I think it's kind of I don't want I don't know if it's I haven't been around long enough to say that this is unprecedented. But it seems like it is I know. Cabrera Bernie Bernie spent like ten million dollars on ads like TV ads. Bloomberg's put in like one hundred seventy four million. I think three hundred million three hundred million across. Maybe this was. Just an uncertain. Christ Yeah Oh yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah just the scale. But he has putting into sin is not even comparable. It's just it's wild and it's working It is working. He also has a he really big target on his back for his really fucked up past policies in words that perpetuated racism and some pretty unforgivable ways but I guess that's the question can he be or will he be forgiven He certainly will not be forgotten because I have a feeling the word stop and Frisk and racism will be said many many times by all the candidates on that stage tonight. Yeah and he also has said some really crappy things about lgbt people and you know he's called transgender people as recently as a year ago. Jesus Christ I don't love that. Did he was he was he? How do you know the context that he was like? Yeah it was like being sarcastic or something. No he wasn't now either way. I think this was maybe only a year or two ago and he said you know in a race for a a presidential race. We shouldn't be talking about whether or not a man is wearing address. Or whether he she or it can use the bathroom. Something along those lines. It was really gross. And Yeah again. I maintain and he's probably less dangerous. Donald Trump and you know of course we will use this platform to support the Democratic nominee. Yet it's hard for me to to throw my support behind someone who says things like that. Yeah in the very recent past yet. It does kind of feel like meteor like a little bit Just kind of how fast and how hot is coming in. It's like war where it wait. Where's this coming from? No one was not prepared for this. I guess it was just like I mean Darkwa is definitely the wrong word. 'cause I feel like a dark horse candidate is usually someone that you're like her. I like an underdog. Yeah yes underdog. Actually where where it's like. I don't know if I'm on a Horse Museum Pegasus that God has seemingly lifted up in these times it is really hard to strike that delicate nuance right between like understanding that that anyone is better than trump and that in that and also I think too with Bloomberg coming in and make some of the people who've been calling much. More centrist seem a little bit less centrist. It's all about perspective. Yeah Biden's like calling him or he right. I'm life caboodle. Judge thank you. We have these people these folks. They seem like yeah very very liberal. When compared to some of the policies that Bloomberg put out a lot of noon I have made our bar political stances somewhat clear and so it. Yeah we're more centrist. Now give you some perspective on being like Maybe not as much Yeah yeah he is just like and like He just means so many shitty comments like when they when they stopped Redlining right like not being able to deny like housing loans right to people of Color. Essentially he said that like when that happened when that change happened. That's what contributed to the great recession and stuff. It's just like fucking incredibly inexcusable. Things that he said that he is out of touch with working people. It would seem yeah working. People people color like you said. Lgbtq folks just really. I don't know it's like I'm not even these are not even opinionated. Things that I'm saying right now. I guess you could probably tell them my pin is but but then these are objective. Things you know. And so he objectively has said these things and then these things and I think he has a objectively more problematic past right now than any of the candidates sutter on that stage. It would seem. Yeah it would seem especially when you rope in his relationship with like trump kind of over the years that people are starting to. I'm not I'm not throwing that shit out there saying that. They have some kind of like deeper ties. That's not what I mean to say. But you know. Cnn and other major media news outlets are reporting stuff like did the. He wants said that he was like a trump guy or so some shit. I don't know that's just. He's just getting attacked for that point. I think look I think whether it's like it or not to what extent it's true. I have no idea. And I'm not trying to perpetuate stuff that I don't know if it's like truly been corroborated so given the other candidates that we have running it's clear that for you and Jordan this is not our favorite outcome Mil So it's not any of the other day like no the fact that there's a candidate that's about to be on the stage. All the candidates are banding together. Essentially to be like fuck you dude. Fuck this shit. Yeah I think that means something to and I think that for that reason it is okay for us to to to back them up and with them. Yeah like Yup. I think so too. Yeah I it it. It's yeah. Yeah how are the? How are the voters of Nevada? Supposed to feel tonight as I ask these questions you know right and we can actually didn't give a shit about our state so exactly then it's like I don't even really want to hear your answer. 'cause I couldn't even vote for you if I wanted to write his just very strange. Very strange that's enough bloomer. Talk of course Bernie also has a huge target on his back. Because he's like the front runner like double digits front runner. He's looking in credibly solid going into Nevada. He's GonNa get a lot of shit for that but also for his health. That's a huge thing. People are talking about last couple of days because in his town hall yesterday he was like. Yeah. I'm not going to release more medical records ever released enough and some people are like well. That doesn't work for us. Yeah so he's getting a lot of shift for that How do you feel about that? I feel like he's really stood up. I mean his National Press Secretary tweeted out like that he had shared sufficient records. And I don't know I'm looking around the country. He seems fine to me. I would rather I would rather have two weeks of a sanders administration than anything else. People say he'd better I was just GonNa say also I will say I have seen some warrant supporters very ripening angry about the fact that she's been left off of some of the polls released recently with general matchups between trump so some media electa it's like closure versus trump Buddhadev versus trump Bloomberg's is trump sanders versus trump. Leaving her off. That's fucked up. It is and so it's like just because she hasn't done incredibly well in the first two states her supporters are saying like hey like you're starting to write if our campaign and ignore us. Yeah cool before it's due So Yeah Shitty that I noticed and at a time when the field is like you know pretty well established and as small as it's ever been to so that's incredibly noticeable. Yeah that's messed up. Yeah Yeah we'll see what happens You Know Blake. I'm very curious to see what happens in this debate. And then how what happens in Nevada? Yes I think there's going to your home state Homestay there's GonNa be a lot of I mean rule. Ninety one was just the most tragic thing that's ever happened in that city. So there's going to be so many questions I think centered around gun control for sure because it's a really Nevada especially Las Vegas. Yeah I grew up in Las Vegas during the debates. And it's like it's such an interesting group of people there's a decent amount of liberal people there like a pretty decent amount but then there's also it it almost has like a yeah. It has a country. Western vibe like like a desert country Western vibe. Sorta thing where it's a lot of like dirt biking and guns and triple state. There's a lot of that stuff but then there's a lot of complex people that live there that have some of that and some of this you know and I think There are a lot of really really amazing democratic politicians. That have come out of that city Harry Reid and third so many. There's a lot of blue support there But I think yeah. The questions that they ask tonight are going to be representative of the population there. Yeah especially and also on snow in mind that it's thirty percent. I think thirty percent of the Democratic primary voters there are Latino ten percent black. So it's it's so much more diverse than the states we've previously seen yet is a real diversity. Yeah Yeah I think. And there's a lot of there's like a lot of it. Wealth inequality in that city to and that's generally reflected in the questions that are asked to this is about the economy and everything The ad it's such an interesting city so it'll be great debate. I'm excited. I'm very excited. Mostly as he how Bloomberg. No-one dragged the PODCAST OR AG for Jordan personal opinions about any of these things. No yes that always goes without saying yes. This is are the bosses away but yeah. The caucuses are three days away. It really looks like Bernie is GonNa take it not just saying that that is. That's what the best policy us but we'll see what happens and I mean who knows. There could be like some crazy. Snafu that happened. I don't know I did see some representatives from the Iowa site leader for the Caucasus. Who was like this might be fucked up just so you know like like like mess like they mess like like. I can't remember what the guys name was but I saw him. Msnbc or something and he was saying we were supposed to be. You know be shown technology to help us with this thing or this thing and we weren't shown it and we're behind information and so there's a I mean I think that there are people out there who are preparing us for the possibility that there's going to be more tomfoolery. Leanna fooling me anyway yeah. That's maybe caucuses need to be done away with..
Gender Bias Reveals Consequences For Female Artists
"Okay for music to art. How many feet famous female artists can you name? No not beyond say or Riana artists like Frida Kahlo and Mary Cassatt. If you're having trouble thinking of more than a handful you may be onto a major problem in the art world. We've been artists are routinely left out of museum exhibits and the work is on average valued much less less than that of their meal. Peers Selley herships and Cardiff Garcia from our daily economics. podcast the indicator from planet money. How that story there was this? This artist named Joan Mitchell. She was an abstract expressionist. She died in the nineteen nineties but she painted a lot. Joan Mitchell was hugely successful and to our world insiders. She's a big deal. But if you're thinking I've never heard of her you would not be alone. KRISTA LATCHFORD IS CEO of the Joan Mitchell Foundation. She's doing remarkably well at auction. The prices are very high but are they. High in relative to Jackson pollock no way are they high relative to Kooning nope paintings by the KOONING and pollock have gone for sixty to one hundred sixty million dollars. KRISTA says there is no record of Joan Mitchell getting. We're close to that kind of money for her work. which brings us to a big part of the reason that people have trouble naming famous women? Artists Artwork by women and men is just valued differently. Rene teaches finance at Oxford and she and some of her colleagues did an experiment. They picked paintings at random and they showed them to viewers. There's and ask them to guess if the artist was a man or a woman on average the Experiment subjects couldn't guess it was painted by man or woman. Renee says it is practically impossible to look at painting and figure out the gender of the artist but she says if the subjects guessed that the painting was painted by a woman they like the painting less renee looked millions of records from auction sales and she found out that on average work by women. Artists sells for forty percent less than work by male artists and because art by women is valued for less museums by less of it and that is how less artwork by women ends up on display in museums. Ziems at the Baltimore Museum of art only four percent of the collection is women artists. The problem is the same major museums around the country. Christopher Bedford heard the museum's director he says that's why next year any new artwork. The museum buys will be by women the various different filters that we put in place to consider acquisitions nations and have always had them. Placed considerable additions and that system comes together in various different forms specific to the museum to filter the history of art and to include or exclude. Unfortunately in the case of women artists often museums have been excluding. KRISTA says anyone who's buying art museums included has to be careful of what's called the superstar effect sales of female artists represent just the tiniest slice just two percent of the market but of the two percent. Forty forty percent is five women. That's what can happen with the superstar. Effect a tiny number of artists. Become like Tokens or symbols and art buyers or museums ziems or individuals. Feel like they've bought something by a lady and so they feel like they don't have to do anything else but then museums can essentially say okay.

Michelle Obamas portraitist and 96 Tears
"My father was the first of his family to go to college he was a dentist so I mean all those things matter it's about creating a legacy and they didn't see that happening with art you know my father was a dentist my great uncle was Titian and my aunt's found a way to get their master's degrees at Nyu back at that time they have programs for that kind of stuff but So education was important there was there was a Bishen yeah it was a way out yeah how did you make your way to art and decide I want to do this. I'd say it just chose me I don't you know I had a great art teacher who really encouraged me even from high school to create images that were my own ideal and it's just I don't know what I felt comfortable doing I didn't have to interact with people I was super self conscious and you know I didn't do a lot that was interested in because I didn't want to be in ruins the people that I didn't know it was just like over the top self conscious so it was easy for me to do it and it's what I excelled at and the There's no conversation about visual learning them but I was a visual learner so it's just you know what my proclivity was to do this stuff or to be jeff that's what I was cooking and you were like the last pre internet generation as well I got my email address when I was twenty which which might be why you have the time inclination to do this yeah I mean I say that when when people ask me why do I do I think it's because of when I was born because I didn't I had a Tandy two thousand we had to pretty much coded ourselves like make the Games work and for me making art was I figure I really didn't know who Jackson pollock was Andy were haller you know these other craters and thinkers that were bending the rules so I this is what I thinking I was supposed to do and so that's what I did to be good and be really be good be realistic yeah did you ever have a a non representational phase I kind of did when I studied with grace hard again in in graduate school the paintings got a little looser little drip easier but ultimately never lost the figure and it just wasn't something that I knew I could expound on on for the rest of my life and so I knew I was still looking for what it was that I was going to make you seem like you need an armature or I'm going to do within this thing you need some kind of almost conceptual aesthetic structure maybe me you to make work yeah I mean like you're not doing changing crazily from abstraction to this to whatever well the thing is you know I mean if you know you're doing this kind of know what you're doing once you become known or something then that's kind of what you do like I could change it but I think at this point in my career that would be a mistake career wise then you can expound on that and and you know like I went from individual to these multi figure and I'll keep challenging myself to do different things but they will all tie into you know what I this body of work in a practical view yeah well you know I had friends who particular one friend who made really great work became really well known and didn't want to make that work anymore any stops making the work and he doesn't he didn't have a gallery after a while he ended up not being an artist one time he still trying to make his way back in do you ever like God I'm going to do a still life or landscape to the I'll just keep it secret no I had no interest I love painting this painting the figures Silvio bombs yeah are they the only a commission you've done yes you want to do any others really I mean if I could choose to people to do I would do Serena Williams Do Meghan Markle I could happen yeah maybe when it was unveiled Obama told this story of meaning you at the interview in the Oval Office now I've been in the Oval Office wants with no president in it just empty and it's pretty amazing justice the thing is you a it's a big job interview the biggest job interview and it's the Oval Office and there's the president and the first eighty what was in your heart and feeling ahead I was I was nervous the first thing that happened and I don't know whether anybody else notices when they walk in but the rest of the White House has like this really kind of strange fluorescent green light and then when you walk to the Oval Office it's like lit for television and that almost triggered my brain to think that it wasn't happening when it really was happening here for about five seconds hours like stuck in this moment of like am I aaa meeting or is yeah or or is Barack walking towards me and so I sent out of it and yeah shook his hand I was nervous life so if she had been you know Michelle Robinson Chicago Hospital executive would you why would the image be precisely what we see in the National Gallery that's interesting Probably Yeah because what I presented to the world I think is the real well her and not the the image of you know the millions of photographs that we have on with her on the Internet means private and that's the kind of feel that I wanted to to something personal in private and not a glamour shot or anything like that it's a painting and it's it's a sobering moment in history and making it exactly but at the end of it when I look back at it like those are the things that I that I think we're kind of circulating in my head in ten years it will just be one big thing did you look forward to that time when it's not all about that all about the Michelle Obama's portraitist yeah it's funny I went from the artist who survived a heart transplant to become a famous painter to the artist painted Michelle Obama and I'm pretty sure sure I could climb out ever and I still be that because she is still who she is and she has such a great influence you know worldwide and you know and I guess I'm okay with that I mean sure it has been a great pleasure meeting you nice to meet you meet you

"From the privileges of American citizenship that they have a right to so. Let's talk about the response from the press us from Democrats. To what trump did you know in in your piece you had criticism for. Both let's take each you mentioned this weekend that you agreed with crooked editor in chief Brian Butler that it's the job of reporters to bear witness faithfully what does that. What does that look like to you? I mean maybe it means telling the truth about what's happening. Even when power is trying to convince you otherwise you know something that there was a dispute towards the end of the Bush administration over whether to call waterboarding torture torture because that was essentially not about whether or not waterboarding was actually torture it was about the fact that the Bush administration was contesting the definition of waterboarding torture because they didn't want to admit that they were torturing people now with the racist chant U._C.. Something similar like go back is Literally Textbook Racism. It's referred to by the equal opportunity. Employment Commission is like a textbook version of racism so to say well. We don't know if this is racist or call to caught racially charged or racially tinged is as to concede to power <hes> disability to create controversy around facts when there actually is no controversy <hes> so when I'm echoing Brian's <hes> admonition to to bear witness faithfully what I'm referring to is not concede need to power the ability to create controversy where none should exist and then on the Democrats you know everyone should read the piece but I do WanNa read one passage because I think it was particularly devastating Democrats now hold the house and they are. I'm not holding trump back. The president has a better to attack in American democracy. He has obstructed justice. He has vowed to turn federal law enforcement on his political enemies. There are squalid camps at the border where families are being separated and children are being sexually assaulted their existence justified as a necessary response to a foreign. Earn invasion trump has sought to rig American democracy in favor of white voters and refuse to recognize the oversight authority of Congress and now a sales the cornerstone principle of multiracial democracy that none of us is more American than any other. If the Democrats convince themselves that anything they do to attack the president risk alienating white voters who believe the country belongs only to them and they will be partially responsible for the path that country is taking what in your mind would democratic leadership that meets this moment. What actions would that entail <hes> I I think it would entail more rigorously fighting the administration in terms of calling witnesses and turning in terms of subpoenaing documents in terms of pursuing investigations but it would also entail a more rigorous defense of the principles of multiracial racial democracy against the president? I believe <hes> Pelosi's response after the all these tweets was <hes> united said what I'm going to say. I'm not gonNA say anything else. I mean that is the Marco Rubio approach to presidential <unk> tweets. It's insufficient in the United States is facing someone who simply does not believe in the principles of multiracial democracy that have guided this country since nineteen sixty five that is an existential threat to those of US whose Americanise might reasonably be questioned under a regime that states that only white Christians are real Americans. I in the Democratic Party cannot exist without those constituents and should be doing much more forceful job of defending them so it seems you know when you pull back from specific moments specific moments to offer rebuke to to speak more forcefully against the president seems that there is a kind of feeling that Democrats in Congress are not fulfilling the mission that voters sent them on in twenty eighteen <hes> that seems to be informing a lot of the internal democratic fights between the squad as we now call them and the leadership <hes> that seems to be informing a lot of the criticism of the way <hes> leaders leaders like Colossians Schumer and people like Jerry Nadler have responded to trump's you laughing at the face of efforts to hold him accountable. Do you believe that there is pressure that can be brought to bear that could get Democrats in the house kind of to step up to this fight in a bigger way to kind of to kind of rise to this moment..

He is a staff writer for the Atlantic Ray covers politics his most recent pieces titled. What Americans do now will define US forever that everybody should go read it? Sir Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me so you spend the last few years trying to explain the historical and ideological precedents that made a trump presidency possible but in taking stock a crowd encouraged by the president's own words chanting centreback. You said America has not been here before what in your mind makes this moment different. I don't think that we've ever seen a president and incumbent president used their our moral authority to hold up as an object of Hey <hes> a particular person <hes> a woman of Color Refugee <hes> of religious minority <hes> as an object addictive hate in this way and in a way that encourages the American people to view <hes> other Americans who share those traits as somehow a danger to the republic. It's certainly something that the president would hear a lot on Fox Fox News in particular from Tucker Carlson show but it's it's not something. I don't think we've ever seen a president do before that's in part because we didn't really have a multiracial democracy in the United States until about nineteen sixty five <hes> but it's also also pretty unprecedented seems traditionally presidents have sought to I mean a politicians has to benefit from that idea without personally directing it right. I mean what makes it such a dangerous escalation that what we have is not just say a president benefiting from a southern strategy from two race baiting and whisper campaigns and smear campaigns and and attack ads that use racial grievance and a president saying it out loud in front of millions of people whether on twitter in front of a crowd what what makes this particularly dangerous is the cornerstone of multiracial democracy's that <hes> you know. We're all as American as everybody else being. Why does it make you more American than someone who is Hispanic Amana or black or or N._B._A.? Christian doesn't make you more American than someone who's Jewish and the president is actually saying <hes> with these attacks that actually the only way to be authentically American is to be a white person who supports Donald Trump <hes> at I think that that is particularly dangerous because again it encourages <hes> white Americans to view <hes> their countrymen as people who are fundamentally conditionally American and don't I don't have a legitimate claim to the policy and that can lead to all sorts of other things all sorts of other both ideological and policy conclusions are dangerous that are dangerous APP for example we saw recently the president attempted to lie to the Supreme Court in order to provide cover for <hes> census question that was ultimately we learned designed to diminish the political influence of voters of color and enhance the voting power white voters for the purpose purpose of allowing Republicans to maintain their hold on power even if they're not winning a majority of the actual books so what do you make of trump's back and forth over the past few days about whether or not to embrace or reject the chant it seems as though there were some pressure from Republicans there was a Washington Post piece in which it seemed like a lot of people inside the White House wanted to make clear that they didn't like what trump said whether or not that's true remains to be seen but but trump did at first seem to want to disavow parts of it and then he walked walk that back what do you make of the pressure Mickley not shame so some form of pressure that's causing him to sort of straddle.

"It is clear that this is how they want to. This is how the Republicans want to frame the twenty twenty election if they can't write like they they don't they know it's not popular to do to go as far as trump went but they liked the idea of elevating these four congresswoman and making this election about are you a real American or you know. I don't even know if it's that the Lindsey Graham explicitly said he said quote. I don't think Somali refugee embracing trump would be asked to go back and quote so they're not asking if you're an American or not they're asking if you're Republican or not and if you're a Republican then you're on their team and you're okay and then anyone else can't say what they think or believe and like what would they're trying. They're trying to say is yes. You have to be Republican to be used to be Republican to be a real Mary exactly and this is where I get a little frustrated with the press because this craven even strategy to pivot away from pretend you didn't say something racist has been laid bare in the Washington Post in his obvious from all the tweets all the comments from his supporters and the reporting will fall into this frame and become bloodless again in immoral and be like well. How's it playing in you know Wisconsin or whatever state and it drives me crazy right? We'll because in the Washington Post story. We're basically being told that we are being lied to all the time by these people like this whole this whole veneer that all the Republicans have have put up about about how like oh it's not really racist and it's about all the bad comments congresswoman made mobile. We know that's a lie because we see these stories and we see trump's tweets like they are bullshitting us. We know he didn't they didn't introduce the idea of the real reason that they're so so upset is because of several old comments by Ilan Omar <hes> from months ago that is actually what has been driving this entire things just ally it's just it's the largest Elias what it's ret conning to explain what he did before <hes> and there's too many people willing to go on with it because either they they want to because it's better for them or because they have their own equities and see a lot of value in attacking Ilan Omar themselves yeah and you and you know that they're not feeling great about their argument when they send out there too big as boot-lickers to the Sunday shows you had Stephen Miller and Mercedes slap who would just say or do anything donald trump told them Rudy Giuliani is still in his cage somewhere.

"Seem like the Tigers head just like let this Jackson pollock painting gathered dust in their in their addict like they they also had a good pitcher who was pitching well and probably would have kept pitching will step blessed. I yeah sure ooh I love. I love that Song Yeah Yeah. I really love that song. I'm skeptical. I know I don't I don't love the concept here I see but I do i. I liked the song a lot and I hope that you'll tell Jesse but I have a question. I love a lot of things about this long. I think it's got a great little. It's got a great tune. I like the how is it d._R._A.. Or E._R._A.. MINUS I think it's minus. It's all right and so I like how it goes the Yarra minus or yes plus. I like the minus plus nil thing in there. I like the the way that amazing ways like is it starts this light great like and movement of the song but it is also a holdover from the previous sentence so like the way that it is like ending the previous sentence while starting this flourish kind of ties the two parts of the song together and there's just a lot of a lot of information in this very short song so the thing that I really like about it. Though is that it perfectly weekly accurately describes exactly what we do in the stat last it is you take a data set sort it by something like e.. R. A. MINUS OR PLUS tease out an interesting tidbit discussed it at length and analyze it. Ah That's what we do. I wouldn't have been able to put it that succinctly without having the restrictions of musical bars or whatever they are and she did it and I just think that's an amazing. My question is did you tell her what we do with the stat whereas like are these your words and she put them music. No I did not read the lyrics. It's very perceptive. Holy Cow Yeah I may have described concept. I mean she listened to the podcast sometimes but definitely did not pick out the words so so yeah good jump Jesse. It's so good <hes> all right so this is a question about Shohei Ohtani it is from Eric who writes imagine you could set up an O._T.. P. Style baseball simulator and have Otani face of tawny a season's worth of times seven hundred plate appearances herself what would Otani's batting line b what would Otani's e._R._A.. K. Percentage etc and this is. I think this is a fun question that we have all not been thinking talking enough about shouldn't we shouldn't it feels like I. I don't feel like I've read this article or her this done yet. It seems like you would who would win Otani or Otani so I just use log five to figure this out so log five is of course a method that Bill James developed to figure out how often a team of one quality would beat a team of another quality if they're winning percentages and later it was adapted to also handle batter pitcher match ups and so the way that I do log five for better pitcher matchups is I I take their strikeout percentages and figure out how often they would strike out and then I take their walk rates and figure out among all the non strike outs since it seems to me that the strikeout comes first and preempts any other outcome how often they would walk and since those preempt any other outcome then figure out the home run rate for all non strike outs and all non walks and and then I figured out the Bab for all non strikeouts walks or home runs and then once I have the number of expected hits I just use the batter's normal breakdown of singles doubles and triples because that doesn't really feel to me like it's it needs to be logged..

"Jackson Pollock has a a a wing at the Newark museum of modern art and one very very of innovative artists actually had an app made. And he he actually had a a private art exhibit at the Jackson music Jackson of a wing using his own material. Because what he did was he actually in this in this app that he downloaded to his friends, and who we invited. To the to the the art of you, look at you pointed at any one of Jackson's paintings and that his a target for the other person's paint. Just completely perfectly over. Nutley areas. Yeah. So the amateur painter actually had had his own Ardy limited the impolitic love that. And you even see sometimes educational.

And when you use the the right app and your phone targets on this little paper card, all the sudden, what was to d- pops up a gorgeous three d image of a dinosaur or the space station, or whatever it is. You're learning about. I mean, I could definitely see museums becoming fully a are immersive within the next year. They're already doing. And you know, the company called octagon studios, and they've got the alphabet cards never simple out that currently each one of the as a an animal unin and take your mobile phone. And you've you look at that animal and the animal comes to life, and you got a monkey, and it re animated it looks beautiful looks photo real in you put in banana card right next to it. And he goes over need some Anna. My my daughter is, you know, she cheese, a licensed therapist deals with autistic kids and cheeses, these all the time it really really helps with with them in getting their attention and everything because you know, it's it appears to be matching virtually -ality. You know, will you put that those goggles on you expect to be you know, wild. But when you actually see something in your own reality that shouldn't be there. That's magic. Oh my gosh. I love that. Right. And it really does not just kids. Right. Kind of turns adults into kids because we're like, wow, no way. How did they do that? That's so fun. So I mean, it's such an interesting path in an interesting journey. And of course, it does speak to your classic kind of academic training and neuroscience. That you know, you understand sort of perception and Cauquenes Shen, and how these visual effects really do really do come into play. When we start to try and understand the psychology or the behavior all basis of how are brains work. And of course, you also gave us some background about the colors ation work that you were doing with medical imaging and how that such a perfect crossover, but I'd love to know from you. I'm always interested in everybody's journey. Going into I these movie studios and production companies, and then move or visual effects houses and then moving now into the startup world. How prepared do you feel like you were with your academic training, and how much do you think that you had to kind of self educate? You know, did you know anything about business when you first started to make this transition? Was there a big learning curve for you, first of all they've all been startups. Really? Okay. When I when I left Harvard. It was just me emission, and I built at into a company with mckellar door of which is a Mexican production company. I had about eleven hundred employees at the end of of that company. Then I found I co founded another company called light span, which was info infotainment, and we're trying to basically win the cable cocoa competition for the home and and provide case six education. That was entertaining. I'm we we did using Sony PlayStation in one hundred fifty CD's that were the medal save requirements for kids..

But the internet is that people are so married to their first impression comes out. Listen to a one time this should is trash or this should is a classic. When in reality that Mary's you to that opinion. And it's like, you know, like when I think about diet like I listened to and I came out. I was kind of whatever we'll on it. And then to be honest. I really haven't given it. The re listens that probably deserves because it didn't like media catch my eye. And the thing that's making me feel like I should just listen to a few more times is the fact that everybody keeps talking about some much kind of weird. I think just the fact this become such provocative like conversation starter. Like there's something like in there. But I think it totally right with the first like one of the songs on my line. I hope I I hope my first impression wasn't the last like. If people's first impression of me like like, oh, we can talk about the Kassai insecure shit..
Never-before released Dr. Seuss book coming this fall
"New Dr Seuss book coming out this fall? It's going to be in bookstores on September third. It's the finished manuscript by the late children's author, and it's the basis for Dr Seuss's horse museum random house's children's books announced the illustrator Andrew joiner completed the text which has a look that's very Susie as they say and wholly his own the book features horse art work by Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock among others and includes cameos from such Seuss favorites as the Grinch and the cat in the hat member. Dr Seuss whose real name was Theodor Geisel died in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. There was another release in two thousand fifteen what PECH get which was a. Best seller so fair or foul. I guess I'd have to really see the book to see if it was a fair attempt. But in historically, those things don't work out. Very well retry to finish geniuses work for them after they pass away. I don't know. It looks pretty good to me though. It looks good. But I it is weird. He's he's he's gone. So they're taking of this finished manuscript. I'm going to be a wait and see to. I can't really I'm not going to be fair foul until I see it. But I've seen clips of it. And it looks. It looks pretty good is what I'll say. I think it looks pretty good. But I don't know I agree with you. I what's it called the jury's out. It is called. Oh, the horse. Just say, I don't even know. I can't even remember Dr Seuss is Dr Suess. Horse. Museum. I think it's such a fine line behind like honoring somebody who's passed away. And then just riding on their coattails published book and make some money. Like, I mean. For example, like prince like after he passed away his family or whoever was in charge of his state did a bunch of things that he was vocal about not doing. I did it. Anyway. They charged for the ticket, of course, because they're making money on it right now, if this was like, a big charity foundation where they're gonna donate these books to like schools around the country or something like I would be one hundred percent on board whether or not it was a good project. But I'm sure that they're just a I'm actually you know, what I'm just going to go with foul. Wow. You just changed your mind. Go with foul. I'm on the fence. I wanna see it. I I'm going to see
Jesse Widener of Klamath Film
"Heralded news news learn is now. Empowering the community base, slow the news, your news with falls, Oregon. Empowering the community and serving mclamb basin. This is the the news facing us pop. Greetings and welcome to base views heralded news podcast featuring interviews with local experts discussing issues important to the climate basin. I'm kirtland key with the herald news this week. We're joined by Jesse Widener Klamath film here to discuss one of my favorite topics, movies, upcoming events, such as the annual climate independent film festival and a special screening with a very special guest coming soon. Jesse, thank you so much for taking the time out of your schedule to join us here. Well, we will get into everything that Clem film entails and just a little bit. But I always like to start these things off a little bit of background on our guests themselves. Can you educate us a little bit more about who Jesse Widener? Sure. So I've actually got a fairly wide arts back there used to work as a draftsman architect California for about seven years before I moved up here, I've studied music composition, do some drawing some writing. I practiced photography for several years before I started getting into the film thing. So the film thing actually really comes from being the sort of great medium. It's an amalgamation of all these other disciplines that you. You can do kind of throw all these different dispirit interests into one thing. So what was the first video project that you worked on? The first project was probably the first project I did with Klamath film, and it was on one of those old. I don't say hold the nineties hand held nineties early two, thousands of Devi Cam with the digital video tape. And one of the first things I learned was that the screen on it is not as it shows brighter than what the actual film was. So I was exposing to the screen and when I actually took the footage home to work on, it was so dark. I had to crank everything is still looked nasty and black, and it was horrible. I'm from Hollywood is well, I grew up in Eugene, but I spent a long time in Hollywood and those Devi cameras there fuzzy because when I was working on a lot of projects, some of those cameras were fifty thousand eight hundred thousand dollars now that everything's gone digital. They're selling those things on EBay for one hundred bucks. People can't get rid of them. Yeah, yeah, ours, ours is more of a consumer grade one though that we were. We're using it was, you know, like something you'd pick up Fred Meyer or whatnot, and it just wasn't that hot and me not knowing what I was doing with it was even worse. So well, one thing that I have found fascinating being involved in film is the number of people like yourselves that got involved in simply by doing, didn't have formal Bagger. There are film schools that people can go to, but lots of times people just get involved when it for the sake of having an idea grabbing a camera and giving a try and kind of learning as you go. Right. That's a funny thing because I think you know, obviously the film industry is still young, maybe one hundred years, old hundred twenty years old. Just you know, it's not like painting or something like that, and it's been a master apprentice industry for a long, long time. You know, you start working on a film as gopher basically, and work your way up. And then at some point you did start getting into the film school stuff with that sort of seemed to be the advice path go to films go, go to USC, go to southern California, whatever the case maybe and then it not in the last probably twenty years with the advance. In technology with the internet, having all of these YouTube videos, and there's several channels that teach you how to do all these filmmaking techniques or whatnot. I think it's really democratized and commodities that industry where you can just from your house, you'll get a five hundred dollar camera. It's amazing compared to anything from, you know, ten twenty years ago and then sit on YouTube for your to do stuff. You know, the technology's advanced, but what's really fascinating to me as just a fan of film in general. I love going back to the old silent film era, the little black Charlie Chaplin Buster Keaton and stuff like that. And you look at the things that they were doing. They were inventing how films are made then. And while the technology may have changed the method for creating film really hasn't and over the course of a century, right? Yeah. The structure is generally isn't actually, I have a slight complaint about structure of fill. You know, when when film for start out, you're talking late, eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds and nobody really knew what to do with it. You know there was this massive creativity of, you know. What? What wild things can I do? You know what weird effects can I do? How can I freak people out that never seen something on screen like this and somewhere in the teens, the nineteen teens. It's sort of took on this the purpose of films to tell a story. And I think it's really been pigeonholed in that one hundred years. You know, it's it's like saying the purpose of painting before there was photography. The purpose of painting was to be as realistic as possible and the medium geared towards that realism until in the eighteen hundreds of the camera came out and they realize somebody could just snap a picture. So you know what was the point of painting now that's when you saw painting expand into, you know, pression ISM and surrealism and Dada. ISM cubism and Jackson Pollock jap- technique and all this kind of wild stuff. And
