Well i. that's a long story. But i as as as far as owning business and being a coach that started in my mid fifties fifty six fifty seven working had ended my career as a teacher and my husband and i had had run a couple of businesses worked with brick and mortar and we got a coffee shop. We had a family fund center. And at this point now i was working as an office manager and quite frankly just kinda getting bored and restless and thinking okay. I'm in my late. Fifties time has gone by super fast. And do i want to just keep working as an office manager. I mean i enjoyed the job but it wasn't like lighting me up. It wasn't when i was passionate about. And i just had this feeling. There was a whole lot more for me to do and i wanted to create an a business of my own. That would be my retirement business. But i wanted to start it and have it already running so that by the time i hit sixty five i was ready to go and i determined at that time. It was like okay. This has to be something. I'm really passionate about. I don't want to create just another job. So i did a lot of research and win on a little journey there and i thought about different things and would start to investigate them. For example i thought well maybe it could be a virtual assistant. I started reading books about it and kind of investigating. And i realized no. I don't like the work itself. I mean if i'm bored doing office work as it is then that would just be creating job so i just kept looking and eventually i was working for university here locally and one of the things that everybody in that university does is take the strengths finder and so that is an assessment. That.
Analyzing the Latest Data on Anti-Asian Hate Crimes
"You so much for having me. So we'll talk about the rise in anti-asian hate crimes and incidents. We've seen the recent data that i've seen shows that during the year of pandemic i think this was. The data was taken between march of last year. In february of this year. There have been nearly four thousand incidents of hate crimes at least reported hate crimes in comparison to the previous year. Were there are twenty six hundred for the entire year. I don't know if those numbers are correct but that seems like a significant rise. Yeah since the start of the pandemic we have definitely seen from different sources that there has been an increase in reported incidents with Racial bias against asian americans. But there's also a difference in in gender right in the way that women experienced these hate crimes and incidents versus the way that men are experiencing them. And i want you to parse you some of that data for me because one of the things that i had read in this appropriately wrong and i think there's why there's gulf in how the media is reporting the incident with the data actually says but is it not true that women are experiencing or at least a reporting more incidents than men can parsi data. Sure yeah this. Is i think an important point in the current moment of how we understand both race and gender and the violence that is associated with both so we know that the atlanta shootings in march that that was a white gunman who opened fire on a on an asian owned spa and or asian on spas and that violence was for sure a function of both race of the women's national origin and gender. Those women were in that position because of their gender you know occupations and they were also economically vulnerable. What we're seeing in the

Young Republicans Have Something to Say
"As a seventh generation georgian. I feel strongly about local politics. But i also feel strongly about having candid conversations across the aisle so john. I started this conversation agreeing that we can disagree and i think gino was okay with that i enjoy having conversations with people who i don't always see eye to eye like we have disagreements. I prefer those conversations so much more than i do. The ones where we're all saying the same thing. In addition to being a policy consultant. For senator kelly. Leffler janelle appears regularly on tv to discuss politics and runs a construction business with her husband. You're an entrepreneur. You're the former deputy state director of the georgia republican party. Your co founder of speak georgia and i know you from your bipartisan weekly. Tv show. you're a panelist on atlanta fox. Five the georgia gang and i am from atlanta georgia. Mostly sandy springs georgia. That's the suburbs And i was born in new haven connecticut and we moved to north carolina when i was younger and then from north carolina. I moved to georgia. So i claim georgia. I've been here now for over ten years so in this georgia has definitely raised me so I definitely claimed georgia. And what i do right now. I am a media personality. And i do political commentating. A large part of who. I am is built in all of the mistakes that i made. You know you had said something to the effect of you know you feel like you are a combination of your mistakes and near learnings can you. Can you walk me through a formative experience you had when you were young. That you feel was like an aha moment for you. Yes oh what. A lot of people don't know is that i was raised in a hebrew household as hebrew. Israelites you know. We were taught that we are direct descendants from of the people israelites. in the bible So you know you have the jewish community and then you have the hebrew community. So i i like to say hebrews or simply black jews It's much deeper for us but for the sake of explaining it So we kept the holy days we didn't i didn't we didn't have like christmas or easter that stuff only the holy days we didn't even have hanukkah so because it wasn't tally a holy day. Right so i i like to say. I'm half jewish so you get it you get it Yeah def and our family was like you get one night of hannukah like yourself right so i think you know this is something is really small but i hated it when i was a child but now i understand the beauty of it where we didn't celebrate christmas and as a child that felt really lonely but as i got older it kind of prepared me to be the oddball out and it made me comfortable like so i was in malcolm. Glad while training hours ten thousand hours by the time you graduate high school exactly exactly and we didn't wear pants so i was like the girl in the skirt who never wore pants who debt. And you know. Celebrate any other holidays and It was just like training and being your own person and values based. I exactly exactly you know. We were taught that our hope is in. God are there's something greater apart in this world that has nothing to do with politics or what we see in the natural it kind of puts you in a position where you feel a boat to Be who you are. And and not me the acceptance of a lot of people in order to do it so that was a really formative time for me in my childhood and i think as am i became an adult. Something that was really really form to me is that i got married twice before having parents who were marry for now thirty eight years and they were the first each other's first boyfriend girlfriend they never dated anyone else and their parents are right so you had that ends example of a lot of laughter. Exactly that
A Look into Broadway Hit 'David Byrne's American Utopia'
"David Burns American Utopia is a grand and glorious plea for Human Connection. By Stephanie's a carrick. Sometimes to make art, you've got to build art to layer ideas, colors, values, and textures.

Monet's two thousand, fifteen protests anthem hell you tom bowed feels fresh and familiar at once inclusive but also mildly explosive there's an urgency to it as if burn and his troupe of eleven, musicians and dancers were staking ground in a battle we shouldn't even have to fight the idea is that to survive to live in any meaningful way, we must stay connected. It's a principal so glaringly simple at its radical. Burn is an admittedly weird ambassador for the idea of connection. He isn't what you'd call a naturally warm presence at least not in Earth terms even at age sixty eight, he's still like an. Learning. The rules of the planet his awkwardness is his brand but his desire to connect is robust and had vitalize is everything that happens onstage during American Utopia. no-one initial has one job. The musicians are also dancers and singers. Their instruments are strapped to their bodies untethered to any bulky sound equipment, which leaves them free to move and dance around the stage in a series of elegantly orchestrated numbers with burn off at the center though sometimes lurking at the edges like living fringe of the proceedings, the choreography is by dance veteran antibeach Parson all the performers including burn where identical lunar grey suits and all are barefoot. The stage is bordered on three sides by a Shimmery chainlink curtain the grand scheme is. Simple yet never chilly. This is a setting a world where certain essential problems have been worked out creating the space and freedom to play, and so even the songs every longtime burn or talking heads Fan knows well, like this must be the place naive melody a moonlit cottage in ballad form or the Wrigley waggling noodle dance. Slippery people take on new shapes and new life between numbers burn addresses the audience directly spinning amusing tales about where these songs came from. He wrote is Zimba with its lyrics by German Dada poet. Hugo. Ball to respond to a challenge thrown down by his friend and collaborator Brian Eno or us to fulfil our civic responsibilities. He uses lighting trick to show how badly the citizenry is represented when only twenty percent of the population votes and as a prelude to the shows Shiver Inducing version of hell you tom about he explains that he asked Monet's permission before venturing to cover the Song Burns band here. Is racially mixed, but he himself is very, very white. No wonder he approached with caution but he and his band present the song and invocation written in two thousand fifteen for all of us to remember the names of murdered black citizens among them Eric Garner Trayvon.

This number also represents one of the few times league cuts away from this show to flash larger than life portraits at the. Victims, often held by a family member on the screen. It's an act of boldness that works as for burn. He is as ever a wildly and captivating showman though his hair is now snowcap wide his dance moves in changed over the years he's still favors angular Turkey jerky movements like the folding and unfolding of corporate tres ruler, which are often mimicked to grand effect by the dancers around him. But as dazzling as he is, you can take your eyes off him.

Theater, and is said to return to Broadway. Next September and we see it for what it is. This is a group of largely white middle aged people who came of age listening to talking heads as a bunch. They're far less diverse than the performers we've been watching onstage a you could argue that with American utopia burn is preaching to the choir that this is all just an exercise in self congratulatory white liberalism but that would be missing the point in one of his Inbetween Song riffs burn muses that there are lots of interesting things to look at in the world there are bicycles which he famously likes. Very Much Lee even shows him riding away from the show on one and beautiful sunsets and even a bag of potato chips can be visually beguiling but somehow we always comeback to human faces looking at people burn says that's the best American Utopia is about facing the person in front of you or next to you or standing behind you and doing the work of seeing to truly see a person is a kind of song and a world filled with those songs is the ideal to get started burning his troop have hummed a few bars.

Big Brother: Did Dani buy Janelle’s finale night dress on eBay and wear it on her finale night?
"Me, and then we were like wait that's gotta be what it is and then boom she says it. Maggie I want to ask you about something I haven't had the chance to talk about on the podcast. Are you familiar with the gym nells Finale Dress? Storyline. I was about to bring out by saw it on reddit that Danny had bought journals finale drastic this. Be to talk about is this okay. Melissa. This is okay. I think I I don't okay. So I don't my only issue with it is that I don't know where that information comes from. I know that the dresses looked the same but I don't know if it was exactly Gino's dress like that. She bought from Janelle or that it was like a like look like dress or the same dress brand just did it and wanted to wear. Okay. All right. So this is. that. A listen we're all Danny did not fans here but story is is a little weird. We're treatise, she bought it like from an ebay auction for. Like Gin put her dress up for charity mills baby six finale dress went up for auction measure of his bb six or seven. Do we now doesn't matter? Okay she put her dress up for an auction Danny Denardo bought said dress and then wore the exact same dress to the finale of BB eight. That go this Danny. Talked about this on feeds. I'm not sure if anyone clocked it but I was watching once and she was talking about with. I can't remember who she was talking about it with but she said that she was originally supposed to be cast on big brother six. She made it to finals for that but she was seventeen. So they wouldn't let her on and she was talking about how she was supposed to be on big brother six and then eventually she said like she was super happy. She was I'm Gonna I'm big like because she was too young or whatever. But I have a theory that she's always loved now and when she was on eight, she had the blonde hair I don't know I. Am Looking at the you know crystal ball or whatever. But I think maybe some validity to try to saying that there is some question about whether or not is the if it's the exact address. I'm a little. I there's there's no possible way that she didn't see wearing it and be like I like that dress I want to wear a dress like that at the finale, a tribute or just because I like it or whatever. But like. There's no way. There's no way. What I'm trying to say is there's no way that they just happen to wear the same dress and it was just like crazy. We don't know if it's the literal dress that touch Gino's body burns in life. It's we don't know the single white females situation orbits just like the question. Did it start with I. Okay. I want her dress I want to be now I have to get rid of her now I have to take over your. Okay you find a single white female situation. Replacement so it's married with married. It's different. So it's fine. You can read of each other it's fine. But yeah, it is very interesting. Also, apparently it was it was an all stars not vick brothers six but still. It's the point
The race problem in economics
"The American Economic Association or the A is the biggest and most important professional organization of economists in the country, and it recently made a statement saying that it had quote only begun to understand racism and its impact on our profession and our discipline. Black economists are severely underrepresented in the field of economics, according to a survey from the EA. Only about three percent of economists are black. Nearly half black economists say they have experienced discrimination in the profession, and only seventeen percent of black economists agreed with the statement that quote. People of my race are respected within the field, and this matters not just for the economics profession it matters for how all of us understand the whole economy and. And it matters how economic policy gets made John Jones is an economic analyst and the Managing Director for policy and research at the groundwork collaborative. What we have learned right now. Is that like we have a worse understanding of the economy because we haven't been listening to economists of color like we're actually worse at economics, because we have denied a voice to folks who understand the different way, so here's an example before the financial crisis of two thousand eight, the unemployment rate for black Americans started rising earlier and more sharply than the unemployment rate for White Americans. In fact, this often happens before recessions, and if there had been more black policymakers or black economists who were advising policymakers. Who understood this dynamic black workers are often the first to lose their jobs before a recession than it is at least possible that policymakers would've reacted more quickly to help the economy, and you might have also had new in different ideas for how to help the Economy John L. Herself along with the economist. Jared Bernstein recently published one such idea. It is a proposal that the Federal Reserve should focus explicitly on the black unemployment rate when it makes decisions about managing the economy, black workers restorick starkly have been roughly twice as likely to be unemployed as white workers, so according to Gino's proposal, focusing on the black unemployment rate would ensure that everyone benefits from A. A strong economy, and as for how to get more economists of color into the economics profession, Juno says one idea is for there to be more. Black economists included among the gatekeepers of economics at universities and economics journals, who are the editors at the top journals who are the deans who recruit new cohorts Janelle release this idea to an early experience of her own. When Economists Sandy dirty recruited her to Duke University, her own career and her contributions to economic ideas, she says might have ended up on a totally different path if he hadn't done that. I was entirely recruited because sandy dairy was a tenured professor at Duke and wanted more students of color. But you know like if he's not promoted to have tenure and job security to be able to take a risk on someone else like. Students of color don't get recruited. The events of recent months have led to renewed discussion among economists and economic policy. For more ways to fight racism inside the profession and to include more diverse approaches to studying economics font, the crowd is a senior research assistant at the Federal Reserve, and she is the CO founder of the sadie collective, a group that supports young black women who want to enter the field of economics with everything that's going on now with the covid nineteen pandemic with the higher unemployment rates in the black community. With the police brutality, the issue of that and the death of George Floyd and what that has incited. We cannot afford for things to go back to how they were Fontana notes that only a tiny share of research papers, especially at the top economics, journals actually study race and racial discrimination and the fact that they don't win. Economics is a tool that's used to inform. Policy is very problematic, so a reckoning would mean that there would be a culture shift. Shift in economics, a number of block economists have also said that they were discouraged early in their careers from studying topics about race and racial discrimination, because they would not get published where they would not advance in the profession, recent study looked at the almost fourteen thousand research papers published between Nineteen, Ninety and twenty eighteen at in the most important economics journals. Journals. Only a hundred and five of those papers impurity tested for different kinds of discrimination, including racial discrimination, though fund is quick to add that there are some economists who have long been doing the work of trying to understand the effects of racism and racial discrimination on the economy. She points to journals like the review of black political economy which is published by the National Economic Association. It's just that this is not really widely read or widely embraced within the mainstream of the economics profession.

And knowing that you know compartmentalizing, trying to realize is separate. From what happened, this doesn't mean the tragedies are stacking up on you yet they are. This isn't a tragedy when a sixteen year old cat. Starts to have failing kidneys. It's not like Oh, my God. That's crazy. No, it's what happens. But I don't know I. Guess I just don't think about that. Shit I. Don't think about a lot of things when I. Get into it. You know when I got. These cats didn't think this is gonNA, suck on the back end here. But it does. But I sat with them and I cried a bid and I told them you know what was up. You know and. I missed a cab, but on some level I. Don't know if it's transference or it's just what it is. But I. I've had this whole process I've been thinking monkeys GonNa die for for months. He'd maybe even a year. At least since his sister died. So I've kind of gotten myself around your. Wrap my brain around. It begun the grieving process. I have a certain amount of acceptance I know it's not unusual. It's still fucking sad, but yeah. I spent as much time as fucking humanly possible because I got time right now. Even when Lin was alive, I would get up in the morning. Be Like Monkey O.. K. 's monkey okay. Well now he's not okay, but I think I'm finally ready. I think he's ready. I think we'll enter this together. And you know. Do It With certain amount of acceptance, but I guess what I'm saying is that I've been? Able to have the experience of wedding go. With the The Animal And his sickness and his age, and it's appropriate I didn't get that. with Lynn. But I. do feel a I feel happy to have. been able to you know. Be there for the fucking cat. And you know aside from that the the other stuff. Just you know, I get up and I don't know where you're at. With how you feel about your life, you know obviously I'm looking at mine through this. Grief Portal this window. But I've got enough. Get up, man, you know. It's like I. Get up, you know sometimes I'll run through some suicidal. Ideation 's just to make myself comfortable. Then I'll get up sometimes fucking pray a little bit just because I want to humble myself and feel. Connected to something. That's the biggest problem. Really is that when my heart kind of wants to reach out to something? There's just no, and and when you don't have a God. There's no place for delaying. You know you're not. You'RE NOT GONNA. Look outside. I can sit on my porch and feel certain amount of peace. But the the, there's not a lot of hope anywhere. And I don't know where I find faith, but you know I. Find It in a present. I'm scared about a lot of things. I re I realized. Life is. Fragile. I realized that anything can happen. That's for fucking sure. But I get up. I fucking make my bed I exercise I. Shower, I comb my hair. I put on pants. And I do a day. That's what I do. Now, alone doing it, so there's a Nag. There's a void there's A. kind of like A humming pit. That I tried to step around. That I try not to fall into I'm looking for some way to traverse it. But I? Think you just have to? I think I just have to realize like there's the humming pit. Do not fall into the humming pit. So I don't. Eat a cook. Things have some melon. Have some melon, will you? So okay, so this is exciting for me, because like sometimes when I do this show I. Get opportunities to talk to people that I think that I would talk. And I knew who John L. Mona was, and I've always I've been impressed with the very little I know of her. which is you know specifically? The movie work and I recently watched homecoming because I. Interviewed Chris, Cooper and she's on that, too, and she's great, but then I saw her. The do the opening number at the Oscars and I was blown away. I'm like what the fuck is this amount of talent coming through one person? But I didn't know a lot about her. So then I get an opportunity to talk to her. Then I gotta dig in so like sometimes when I have a guest all right. Let's try to wrap my brain around their works. I'm listening to the records the music trying to get a little sense of where she comes from. And It's very exciting. She's an incredibly talented person, a gifted actor musician singer. Composer. Arranger dancer I mean fuck man. It was just I was nervous. I was nervous. You can see in the new season of homecoming, which is on Amazon Prime Video. Her next film antebellum is coming out to August twenty first, and this is me. Talking to gentleman..

A lot of people without work for a long time out of insecurity instability No Way to really look to get to get that sort of reassurance that things are going to be okay with the fucking world with the country with civilization. Is Civilization GonNa. Make it are we gonNA digress into some. Barbaric Shit show. I don't fucking know. All I know is that. I don't know if even if you WANNA leave this country are going to be able to because now we're the fucking dummies. Now somehow another inside three and a half years or so. This president has. Brought this country so low. That other countries think we're fucking dangerous dummies. We I'm sure they always thought we were dangerous, but now probably not even going to be able to travel because the biggest country with supposedly the most resources and Greatest scientists and whatnot. The Great America. Is Now a viral shit show? That PEOPLE AREN'T GONNA want Americans in their countries. Because we have national leadership or protocol on the front of the biggest pandemic.

Instead of just crying about it and doing it anyways, the bully children will now Bowie the people that are taking care of themselves in the community. And that goes right up to the top man goes right up to the top. So look I am trying to deal with a lot of stuff. I I, I feel like anger's coming back and I'm not sure where it's going. But I talked to you about monkey and I think I figured out what I'm doing. What monkey I'M! GonNa probably improbably. See I can't commit to it, but you know he's he's. distressed.

I know you had a grandmother who served food in jail for about thirty years. Did she tell you stories about jail? And did she tried to talk to you and her other grandchildren about never doing anything that might land you in jail. Yeah for sure you know. It was my grandmother. Actually serve food in the county jail for like twenty five years in some she would see a lot of Lot of people come in and out in my grandmother was type of person. Her name was betsy and she would let people who you know had murdered folks and who had rob people after they got out of jail because they emit are in jail and they all called her mama she will let them come live with her and do anything in her and they actually got back on the right track. My Grandmother was very Forgiving inviting and. I wish I had more of that. You know in me. 'cause house like grandma what you're doing like Get these people out here he said. Did you get to spend time with them? I did and that changed my way of thinking because you you're taught like their pass you know everybody has their pass but people think they can they can change you know. I think rehabilitation and good mentor. Ship and Accountability you know rooted in love. I think all of that can change people and I think that people who are coming out of prison and trying to make a live from themselves should get that opportunity when last question. How are you trying to move forward with what you're trying to do during the pandemic when you're basically disdain home is hard you know. It's hard I mean I had a line of shows. I was actually going to be performing with At the Hollywood bowl this June With with an orchestra you know I was looking forward to it and I was GONNA be headlining. Pride in New York and all of that you know has gotten postponed There was a movie antebellum in over which was going to be my first lead role that was scheduled to come out in April. And that's postponed well As a result of so for me. It's the first time that I'm having to look at my schedule. And having a cross off things that are not happening and financially you know a lot of that is is hurting me as well but I'm not in in the same predicament. As let's say like a single mom with five kids who just got laid off and so what I'm doing is I'm understanding that. Yes we are all going through different stages of this and it's impacting us in ways. But it's like listen. We're going to have to pull together and help One another and one of the things that I am doing is. I'm not making music right now. I'm not really inspired. Because music is so rooted to my reality you know. is so rooted in right. Now I'm having a hard time grasping reality it's A. I'm having a hard time understanding this new reality. And that's what I I've been trying to do just realizing that we can't depend on this administration right now. You know. We're going to have to listen to the scientists and we're GONNA have to continue to lift the real heroes who are essential workers. You know the nurses and doctors and those who are delivering our food for us and risking their lives and their own health to ensure that we have A. We need to know.

All your dreams go down the drain. I thought maybe your mother saying like don't get pregnant. You know what maybe could have been but whenever I listen to it I want to take responsibility for that lyric and I think it just I want to put that on my Mama That was something I wrote and Yeah that was. That was where I am. I'm thankful I'm not there anymore. Well I WANNA play the song because I I know might not mean that much to you anymore but I I think it's really great and another thing that's great about the song is the arrangement. I mean you have tiffany and French horns And I remember you telling me we had I interview that used to go to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra of and listen to them. And I think it's really great that as you know as a young artists that you are ambitious enough to find a way to work all of that in. Yeah Yeah you know I. I guess one of the things that I love and then when I look back. I'm realizing that there were just you know hints of Eclecticism in just like freedom. You know even though there are always folks in your community trying to keep you In a corner and control you and sometimes people use religion to do that in certain things there were still exploration in the and. I'm just thankful for that and they're still wanting to bridge. You know lots of different styles of music and figuring out How to learn from different cultures and and I love string arrangements. I loved him. And he's I love watching the orchestra just as much as I love. You know A grimy hip hop song or a rap song I Love Jazz. You know we love all these different things and and I just.

"That's you know Monet from her two thousand eighteen album dirty computer and she's now starring in season two homecoming which starts streaming Friday on Amazon. And I think some people were surprised like OJ Monet. Like a musician a singer. She became an actress. But really that was always your goal. I mean you went to New York. grew up in Kansas City. Kansas you want to New York to study at the American Musical Dramatics Academy at the time you wanted to be in Broadway musicals so I mean you're go initially was to combine music and acting. So let's start with why Broadway musicals. Why was that what you were aiming for? Why do I just didn't want to To not saying and at that time I was before I went to to study at MTA. I was always in music. Musicals in in music class is the ACAPELLA choir and I was competing in talent showcases and doing cover songs of destiny's child Lauren Hill and You know and then I a Thespian. An International Thespian where I was monologue competing like driving to three hours with my team with my drama club yeah it just depended on what we were reading at that time and what my teacher will help me pick. I was also into Shakespeare. So I would do after school Shakespearean Programs And you know I. I was always doing that and it. It both was never only do music only do acting and so. I just thought these theater. It was a way to combine. We concern that being black with limit. The roles you'd be considered for on Broadway for sure for sure. It was partly one of the reasons why I I did not want to go forward with it anymore and it was because I just. I didn't see a lot of those leading roles that I could sink my teeth into and I'm also a writer I was riding a lot growing up I was in the young playwrights roundtable At the Coterie Theatre in Kansas City Missouri. Where you would write these short stories and if your material was good enough the local actors perform it and actually ended up getting kicked out of that program because my mom and I were sharing car at the time and you know she was working China food on the table and she sometimes like her job would run over which meant if she was picking me up and she was late then. I was late for the after school program and After so many is being late you know because I was helping. My mom and pop couldn't come pick me up on time because of her job. They they kicked me out and I remember just so hard that your mother was working. I mean that that it was a deer issue it was. She didn't yeah didn't matter. I hold no hard feelings so if anyone's listening like I've actually spoken to some of them But it actually changed my life. It put me on a path of determination. I wasn't GonNa let that stop me. I was crushed. You know and that's just one story of what so many kids you know. I guess we would consider like my mom definitely were not middle-class class. We were living in a duplex sometimes. Living with my grandmother and aunt you know we never owned a home and a house with mortgage and and all of that so we were you know living check to check which was fine but it just makes me think about so many young kids who are having to deal with that and the the feeling embarrassed or fill in like man you know. I can't even be a part of something that I love doing. Because of you know my home life affecting my career so when you did start your movie career. I don't even know how this happened. You're in two films that were nominated for best picture like hidden figures and moonlight which actually won in that category How did you go from not having an acting career to being in such in films that had such a big impact Voodoo thousands? I thought that was one. Yeah no I When I read Moonlight I knew that that was a special film. You know I didn't know that it was going to win an Oscar because I just thought that I don't know I I didn't think that like a cast of basically all black people would get it opportunity to to win best picture Especially like a small indie. You know feeling film like that and I mean it was just so specific was undeniable. You know The story and my role my character characterized Theresa She represented so many aunts and mother like figures who I think she was a great example of of how to how to nurture someone who is is trying to uncover their identity and and trying to understand more about their sexuality had listen I read that you turn on like thirty film roles before getting the role in moonlight did moonlight. Seem like the perfect place for you to start because of the themes of the movie because of the people behind it. I wish I had the opportunity to turn down thirty films I mean I did say no to a few and some of them I didn't get I actually one of my first film to be science fiction. I wanted to like star in a Sifi franchise. You know man if I can get that. That'd be amazing you know But that wasn't the case and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I'm so happy that that moonlight was my first film. Because the representation Was Super Important. I'm Barry Jenkins. Is You know one of the greatest directors how he runs his said to be able to to work have worked with her.

She Co starred in Moonlight and hidden figures and stars and season two of homecoming which starts streaming Friday on Amazon. There's no song I wanNA play from your first album and I played this the first time we talked which was when your first album came out and the song is called sincerely. Jane and you had told me then that it was based on a letter that your mother wrote to you before we hear the song and I really love this track Can you tell us about the letter that your mother wrote to you? That inspired the song when I moved away I want to say when I moved to New York for college as she had. We will write letters to each other and she would just keep me posted on what was going on and I'm from Wyandotte County. Kansas City Kansas in Kansas City Missouri is like five minutes away. If I could bridge separates US and a lot of my friends. Were being murdered A lot of my friends from from gun violence in a lot of my cousins. I remember playing with growing up. Were you know unable to to go to college? And if they did some of them would just stay back home and kind of Sell Drugs and so. My cousins were in fact selling drugs to our family members. And this isn't you know unique to me. You know it just happens you know everybody is hustling and I think that that side of me hearing that was just so discouraging and it was. It made me you know my heart weep and when it was time to write songs I could only right from my experiences in the things that were bugging me and bothering me and you know one of the the lies in song is all we really living arches. Walking dead and everything wasn't all bad. You know growing up like I WANNA be clear about that I had some of the best summers of my life with my family. And when you grow up in a big family like I have you know with over fifty first cousins and lots hot. You know what I'm saying your own community you're swimming together your Singing together your pop and fireworks together. You are watching movies together. I mean I used to watch a lot of films scary movies. Horose one of my favorite John Rosen. I remember watching Freddie Krueger and Child's play and and and Halloween with my cousins and my nose would be bleeding. Don't ask me why but and I loved every moment of it so the letter that you mother wrote you. That inspired the song. We're going to hear. What did she tell you in the letter? A lot of you got. GotTa listen to the lyrics. I I actually haven't listened to that song in a very long time so I couldn't. I can't really quote any leagues. Right down fortunately okay. Well I can hang on because I wrote them down so I have And some of the lyrics. Oh my goodness I'm actually cringing at the thought of you playing this song because some of the lyrics. I just don't believe in anymore like I think there's something in the second verse. Well this might be because I was going to ask you about this danger. There's danger when you take off your clothes. All your dreams rain girl is that the longer linking up. Yeah I hate that line. I wish I tell me why I was really curious about that because it's not true. It's just not true and I think when you grow up you know in in Baptist you grow up in in fear and people saying you know if you behave this way you know you're not GonNa go to heaven you know and I think that that's I mean as embarrassed as I am. You know it's important to take look at that and understand. Artists change artist changed their based on the information about yourself and about the world And understanding that women have been oppressed for so many years and told that we should address like this. That's too sexy or you know we're trying we're looking for attention And that if you get raped or if someone sexually assault you is because of something you did and I think that that was also something that was pushed.

Donald trump being elected president affecting your ability to do what you want to do in the studio. Yeah I mean I. It was one of the first times I felt very afraid. You know living in Atlanta Georgia and there were White Supremacist and Neo Nazis. Going around two little black kids birthday parties and holding up the confederate flag. And there's a lot going on in the country during that time and I didn't know if this was going to embolden them at the time to do something to people like me. You know who were speaking out against you know racism and sexism and Xenophobia Islamaphobia. And everything you know that they represent and I just didn't know and so I started to have like you know anxiety attacks about it and I'm thankful I didn't let that stop me because I think that album representatives especially One of my songs Americans. I don't even think it gets a lot of I. Don't think a lot of people who have had the opportunity here. It deals with that. It deals with how I'm not going to back down and we're not going to back down and become silent and in quiet and watch you know this. President tear this country apart in.

That perhaps if if I told my family which ultimately if you make statements like that your family's GonNa here here you know and they're going to be like what we didn't know and and as loving is my family was I thought. Oh what if they abandoned me you know because I come from a Baptist family? Who's very religious you know? I grew up listening to certain pastors. Say to me and say to the congregation. You know if you are Not Heterosexual or if you're if you're gay or bisexual or queer you know you're going to hell and for me. A lot of it had to do with what my family thing like. I don't want my my family to abandon me and the same way that I felt like my dad did growing up. And what about you know you start thinking about your fans and you start thinking about what if people say that? I'm opening up now because I want to sell albums people have said that and they said that about other folks and what people you know if I open up would if they say I don't want to buy her albums anymore.

I plus communities but I'm educating them in there in they're finding out and you know it just it took it took having those conversations For me to feel comfortable enough to stand up on the Oscars to stand on the records that I made And and to stand for for what I represent right now You know in this point in time in my life. Was it also an issue for you earlier? That to talk about your own story in your own issues mentality about your father's story and his addiction and I don't know I'm thinking maybe you didn't want to draw him into that. Maybe he wanted more privacy. And it's hard when your story is so intimately intersecting with somebody else's story in that story doesn't want to be public and it limits your ability to tell your own story for sure. I think you're right about that. I think I'm always trying to protect you. Know People that I love and care about because they didn't ask to be famous they didn't ask to Have this life and it's never been about me even being famous. I just love being an artist and I love telling stories and I love connecting with people and sharing and I think that this part of the game and O- one of one of the things is you know being able to speak through science fiction and being able to have characters like Cindy Mayweather be something that can represent and help so many people not just myself. There's so many people that can connect to her to her world But being able to do that does allow you the opportunity to not have to speak about everything this so painful to you when you're when you're reality is painful And when certain aspects of it are tied to pain? You don't always WANNA sing about their. Let's hear some of your music. A great track from your twenty eighteen album. Dirty computer is called. Make me feel. Is there a story behind the song? A story behind the song I mean. I wanted to make sure that if anyone felt like because they saw me and my Tuxedo or saw me fully clothed in used me for like respectability politics. This was the song that I want it to. Piss them off with. That's really funny. Yeah you know what this is I want I want. I want them to be pissed off pretty much with that album. It was it was weeding out. You know folks who tried to place me in their little safe category You know this. This was the rise of the dirty computer you. I have to say when when you say anybody who would confuse your Tuxedo with the politics of respectability. Like I never would have thought of that. I think a woman whereas a tech CEDO. It's a little different from one a man whereas I take Cedo and you're wearing a Tuxedo with this kind of off kilter pompadour. Doing James Brown moves so I just think most people would find it hard to equate that with with the politics. I mean I mean there is a category of folks who think because you're fully clothed and not understanding my story which was to where a uniform to pay homage to my working class parents who were janitors and my mom served food. She did have to wear a Tuxedo. Uniform when she was catering by dad you know was a trash man and drove trucks and help clean up the city you know. My parents were essential workers in early on wanted to pay homage to them. And and all those who were wearing uniforms those who were serving in the country so that was one reason why I was constantly wearing the black and white Tuxedo. And then I wanted to rebel against you know The ginger norms. And what it meant to dress like a woman would have meant dress like a man you know and I always rebel and rebuked I've been this. I've been a anybody trying to tell me. You know who I should be. And and using me to be a poster child for all things pure and all things good and one thing about me is if the rest of the world was in. Tuxedos I would be naked. That's the philosophy right right. Yeah you know it's funny. I never thought of the Tuxedo. That you were as being kind of own marsh to the Tuxedo was your mother. Had to wear one when yeah when serving food because I know that Tuxedo is a uniform for a lot of musicians Who have to like work You know like weddings or in certain clubs or as you know in certain restaurants or lounges and So I I kinda get that but I wouldn't have thought about that. So thanks for explaining that and for anybody out there who thought that Geno Monet's style dressing about the politics of respectability This song makes me feel is totally sexy and how you look in the film companion to your our them when you do. The song is also totally sexy. So here is John Homo doing her own song. Make me feel it is fairly Alpha calligraphy. God Claudia Extreme contrast now I'm GONNA ask the same question. Can only in tinges should go by the way I use. My Com Gracia Gum. Us is like I'm turned sexual. Does Not just the way you make my way you make good. So slow. Who S Janelle Monae. Doing her song make me feel from her. Twenty eighteen album dirty computer. And that's our latest album. There's definitely a prince influence in that time. Did you sample hamlet? No I did not. I didn't sample him Prince however was working with me on dirty computer before he transitioned on in. I was in the middle. It was it was difficult for me to finish the album because of that and prince was helping sending me song. Inspirations and We were going back and forth. And so when he transitioned on. I felt that I had to continue to finish that album and I was always asking myself. What prints do in these moments? Whenever I I couldn't figure out a lyric or music or instrumentation or Melody. How did you get to meet him and work with him? I had a show and this is around my first before the android came out. I done an EP call metropolis. I just got finished performing. I opened up for Raphael's D.C and I had a sinus infection and I was. I was not feeling well and I went backstage and I get this knock on the door and I'm just like Oh God who is it and it was a DJ Rashida. She had a phone in her hand and she was like. I have somebody who was talk to. You knows like okay. Who Are you. Why should I be getting off? Unusual was like no. Just just take the phone. The phone and I took the phone. I'm all stuffy. I'm like hello and then I just here on the other end of the phone. This voice is Hello Jim now.
"janelle" Discussed on Fresh Air
"From whyy in Philadelphia. I'm terry gross with fresh air. Today to Nell Monet. She writes performs Afro Futurist funk soul hip hop and she co starred in the films hidden figures which was nominated for a best picture Oscar in two thousand seventeen and moonlight which won the Oscar for best picture that year. Her latest album dirty computer was nominated for two grammys. She Stars in the second season of homecoming which starts streaming on Amazon Friday. In the past Moneo offered clues about her life while performing as her alter ego the android cindy mayweather but now she's speaking more openly as a black queer artists. We'll talk about some of the things that her life and art including growing up in Kansas Poorest County and how wearing Tuxedos as she often does is a statement about her family as well as gender fluidity. When my guest nomo performed the opening song? At this year's Oscars electrifying the audience. It was an acknowledgement of her growing importance in the worlds of movies and music. She used it as an opportunity to describe her own identity saying she was proud to be standing there as a black queer artist telling stories. She first became known for her Afro Futurist funk soul hip hop in which he performed as her alter ego an android named Cindy Mayweather. She often appeared in Tuxedo wearing her hair. In a high pompadour she started her movie career with a bang. She Co starred in hidden figures which was nominated for an Oscar in two thousand seventeen. She also co starred in the film that won best picture that year moonlight and twenty eighteen. Her album dirty computer was nominated for two grammys including album of the year. Now she stars in season two of the Amazon series homecoming which starts streaming on Friday the first season adapted from the Gimblett fiction. Podcast of the same name was a psychological thriller about a pharmaceutical company. That was secretly treating war veterans suffering from PTSD with a drug that erased their memories in season. One Julia Roberts start as a counselor in the treatment. Program season two starts with genome. Oh news character waking up in a row boat in the middle of a lake using her hands as paddles she makes it to the shore but she has no idea where she is or who. She is. Walking down a road in a daze. She's picked up by police woman who tries to help her at the officers suggestion. She searches her pocket for some ID and find one which says her name is Jacqueline. The police officer takes her to a hospital. Which is questioned by Dr Jacquelyn? Brings you tonight police officer? I spoke with her and she said that you're feeling disoriented. Trying to understand what happened to you. You said there was a guy with you. Did he hit you in the head going to do a quick exam? Jacqueline? What is your address. How I don't know about your birth birthday. I don't know do no monet. Welcome to fresh air. First of all how are you well? You know I'm just trying to Understand what time it is with day it is would world. I'm living in. I feel like I'm a in an alternate universe. It's funny you should say that because so much of your music takes place in an alternate universe in here. You are living one but not the one you imagined so. Let's talk a little bit about homecoming. Your character doesn't know who she is. She doesn't remember her own identity. Since identity has been at the heart of your music performing and recording for years in a persona as futuristic android and then performing in your own identity as a Queer Africa African American woman. Did you find things? You could relate to about character and homecoming because identity and her lack of knowledge of her own identity so central. Yeah you know there. There are some similarities. But we are are are not as a like As one would think which is why I wanted to take the role I mean she wakes up in this boat my character. Jackie and how? She doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know how she got there So she is on this this journey of self discovery and trying to uncover her identity and as soon as she thinks she's getting closer to the truth. You know she's getting closer to ally and so we we get an opportunity to go on this wild ride with her. The series also makes me think a little bit about your twenty eighteen album dirty computer which You mentioned that the album also has like a forty five minute narrative film that has a lot of the music from the album in it. And you play. Jane five seven eight to one and futuristic society where people who don't conform are considered dirty computers and they have to be cleaned which means like their memories are clean to So did you feel some resonance with that aspect of this story. Sure you know I. I've been thinking a lot about what it means to live in a world where you are the minority where you are You know apart of marginalized group of people and and what happens when when those in the position of power a strip you of the identity and strip you of the things that make you special In that that helped make make this country special in this world special and I think with homecoming this is. This speaks to our veterans so One of the things that that really drew me in his getting an opportunity to play. You know this vet and have a deeper conversation about how we treat our vets who are coming back from fighting for our country dealing with PTSD and mental health. You know how. How are we helping to Strengthening our our mental health care system in dirty computer. Your character says in the film version of it. This is a society where people who don't conform a dirty computers people began vanishing You were dirty if you look different. Showed any form of opposition at all. If he were dirty it was only a matter of time. And you're told to recite. I am a dirty computer. I am ready to be clean. And I know you've said you relate to this idea that you created because you felt so marginalized you felt like section outsider for so much of your life. I'm wondering how it felt to open the Oscars have the opening song on the Oscars and declare your pride to be standing there as a black artist. Well I mean I think I made the statement you know throughout music in in thirty computer and if you listen to even to my first album. I have a song on their communist rooms and roses. Second Album I spoke. I spoke about it. I think one of the things that I was I was dealing with was abandonment issues. And my dad you know growing up and we're very close now and he's like you know my best friend and he's doing so much better but one of the things that I dealt with growing up was my father was in and out of my life you know on drugs in and out of prison and he was really sick and as I mentioned he's healthy now we are in a much better space and I didn't realize that all of of.
Coaching with Lucien Lu - Piano Teaching Via Flash Briefing
"Right so here we are with the one and only Lucien Lou. Lucien for people that were at project voice. You are no stranger to those people there. Because you're the guy carrying around all the camera gear and doing an amazing job of capturing all the content solution. Welcome to the PODCAST. We have a really cool project that we're going to work on together. Nobody take a moment here. Tell everybody who you are terrier. Really appreciate that. The shout and everything. It's just been super amazing to actually work with the one. And Only Dr Carrie Fisher Terry V as they call him on the streets Stupor Super Amazing. Learn tons of things and I enjoy being. Ll Rock for the few days that we were there. So superseded about flash briefings and who? I actually had a question. As Piano Teacher I teach panel of how can I actually get on this flash briefing How can I make it Alexa skill? Like so many questions as an entirely new person it just completely I do not know anything about flash briefings or waste so who else to go to turvy so awesome. That's that's awesome. So this is this is this is the idea. I think this is a pretty neat idea because what we're going to do is I want to help out Lucien Lesions and awesome guy like I say. He's a big big part of the team. Now part of the Doctor Terry Fisher brand team and election candidates for cells in everything that's going on and Lucien wants to as he said create a flash briefing and this is going to be an opportunity for the audience to listen in and hear about what goes into creating a good fuss briefing in the process in what you need to consider. And what's important? What's not important and how we can do this. So Lucien right now the way things are because I think this is good for people to know. Do you have much of a presence on the voice devices because it's interesting to note people where you're starting from a complete scratch. Man I have no podcasts. Have NO FLASH BRIEFING GROUND ZERO RIGHT NOW all right? But you're on tick tock and I have to say that when we're in Chattanooga crazy you happen to run into a fan that new. Your doc is not true man so so huge style that actually super crazy it is amazing that you guys see that But Yeah Tick Tock. Video is my more my presence. Youtube is grim. And Tick Tock but man. I'm saying like audio being the next thing asked where I wanna be okay. Perfect and being a piano teacher. I mean it makes a lot of sense okay. So here's the so. We got the premise. You WanNA create a flash briefing. You WanNa get on voice so just share a little bit of your thoughts now like what? What do you want this flash briefing to do? What's the purpose of a vast region definitely so Every day I I WANNA be able to give advice to people trying to learn piano and so whether it's a tip that helps that helps you learn how to practice better our sight reading your training. It's something that will help you become a better musician. A tip that allows out of practice. I'll give you an exerciser play. Not In the name exercises everyday. Great Great and Annette's sounds perfect little short little bit little tip and somebody can can go ahead and so one of the things that I always talk about. When I'm thinking about you know creating briefings to help people help helping other people to create by sweeping is what problem are you solving and I that may be self explanatory for this but it sounds like the idea here is. You're trying to help a person who's wants to learn how to play the piano. Be More efficient with that is that is that sort of a fair statement hundred percent on all right and does it matter if they're like a beginner or more advanced person or have you thought about like who would who's going to be geared towards us right so this one is going to be geared toward toward the beginners the people who are jumping onto. Actually this APP called simply piano so many kids are so many new adults jumping into piano are learning from APPS and so i. I don't doubt that they would be the ones to be jumping on board with a voice device take advice and to learn more about Danone and transition from just an APP. Just a game that they play into an actual skill that they have so. That's right where I see appropriate That's awesome and obviously one of the things is you know if they're going to be listening to your first briefing. They wanted. They wanted to be listening to something. That's got some expertise and we didn't say this you have. You do have a lot of expertise. You have the credentials so maybe just share that with us. Like what makes you a guy that can teach piano appreciate that? Yeah man it's So my background. I've been playing piano since I was four. Twenty four years old right now. Seven plan for twenty years. I at age. Fourteen cheese three diplomas in piano. Meyer St Performers Gt Teachers in my global licentious Lennon. College music so it's it's been a huge part of my life and I do have an Asian parents asiapac upbringing. So it's like A. It's kind of like a mandatory right right of passage kind of thing. I really appreciative in super fortunate to this kind of background and I just really want to get back to this community that that where learned from so Yemen. It's Janelle teachings been part of my life is only
Our AI Isn't Weird Enough Yet
"Welcome to you. Did what now a podcast where we discussed stories and science and Tech Tech. Make US ask exactly that Harry one. Thanks for listening on your host. Stephanie Educator and science aficionado Michael Programmer Tech Guy. I've always talked about algorithms MM suffering and I. I just saw one yesterday though I saw one I gu photos law to they have an algorithm miseries. Stitching together photos. Is doing this doing that so so I don't know. Are you familiar with Google Photos Upload your photos there at all you all of my photos are there so I hope you're not going to tell me that my photos should not be there so I don't know about that voters in there so these things stitch together they'll see. This is the best shot. I'll try to smile. Goes where it puts the photos together and tries to you. Take seven of the same person and they'll try to give you that. Look the best shot of it or I'll make movies on the list of so one of the things that does is called Ben and now or like identify you from some years ago and stitch together with a with a pose that you just talk shows. I don't know how exactly how it works. I haven't dug into the but it like I find on the expressions are often similar. Like you're looking the same way to me. It's Kinda cool and it's something that's supposed to make you feel better or worse about yourself you eh. Just sort of like how things change a lot of the kids. The kids come locks take a billion pictures of the cancel. Show me one two years ago when they're doing something from the Christmas tree with. This is one of the Christmas drink but when I took recently they just sort of drives home. How stupid algorithms are and how easy and like how? We're not anywhere near you Larry. Learning how algorithms are stupid and that they don't really understand what you're doing. I took a picture. Just 'cause I wanted to Texas to somebody and it was easy to take a picture my screen than it was to find the photo on my phone own and text it so I took a photo of funny picture of my cousin or my two of my cousins sitting on the couch. And they're making the lyrics making kind of funny as one of them is about to take a bite so I took like a picture of that and I sent it to me sent to them just to get a laugh and whatever we laughed and Google photos auto uploaded it because my tax message APP with all this new photo which which is again. It didn't need to do that because they photo elsewhere but so today I got this little pop up saying then now. It's the same photos the photo I took a picture of with the picture sir. Hey these people remarkably similar right like it's it's funny because you think it's sort of it's weird. How sometimes aches and tell my kids are agent for the most part? I guess maybe just 'cause it's slow and it sees them step by step which you think he would identify these pictures even with the lighting slightly different that. Hey this is exactly the same. These these people are exactly the same age exactly the same pose that he went that it wouldn't be tripped up by it but it clearly was. I wonder if you could. Are you. Do Sir do those picture re-creations of when you you you're thirty years old and you try and recreate a picture of when you were you know three five and seven with your siblings. You're thirty thirty five and thirty seven and you're in the best of the big smile. Would it be able to recognize that as the same person I it should attack. Generally you haven't tags so yeah it should know that we'll say as things get better but it's still remarkably stupid and that's actually what I want to talk about today is how is weird. Dum Okay and you're and you're using those adjectives weird and dumb not just as like okay. You're judging it as like. Oh that's dumb. You're actually trying to say that it is stupid in nature. It's definitely stupid. We're nowhere near anywhere near real intelligence legance at So I was listening to Ted. Talk by Janelle Shane. WHO's a researcher? She didn't like a ten minute tech. Ted Talk About Ai. Just a bunch much different things and how it's quirky and how that basically is weirder than we think like we're not the future is going to be weirder than we think because all these things are not is not great and were teaching it poorly as well. Though the first thing she starts with he talks about ice cream flavor. She worked with a young program is I think she said but she basically she fed the algorithm with a bunch of ice cream flavors. And Yeah you know. Some of them have weird names. You've I'm sure you've been to an ice cream shop. They make up these crazy things. He doesn't know any better understood. So this album to try to generate new ice cream flavors so so here are some of the three that she suggested it's called Pumpkin Tash break Peanut butter slime and strawberry cream disease. give me a ball full of that right exactly because it doesn't no it doesn't what is cream is he doesn't know that it's trying to make appealing flavors. You're telling me give me things like this so basically what it's doing is just finding letter combinations or word combinations and just feeding them together until it gets on that and it gets gibberish peanut butter slime. Yeah Yeah I have a feeling that there would be definitely we some market for that in the for the six to nine year old boy range. They would definitely WANNA try peanut butter sly you know this is this is my next attack idea. Next tech building idea is going to create an ice cream shop just but everything's generated by the machine so it'll be peanut butter slime and strawberry abry cream disease and just just go at it. Make flavors the match the ridiculously generated. Things and funny thing is that then become they become real flavors and suddenly the he is in his stupid as it was the future. Would you call your company of of robot ice cream career game would have to be generated by the all. I would take all the ice cream shops that are out there so I get you know Maggie Moose who's stone or exactly okay. Well Good luck with this. Yeah so so she goes on. Oh she's talking about things that are happening she. She mentions movies like she thinks. The terminator should have been weirder like the term comes back like super robot with a walks. It's normally acts a little weird but not probably any weirder than order storks today acts anyway. Hey leave him alone can every every way right. But he's a very like this is a I super intelligent robot thing in the future but it he she says it probably should have been we iteration of probably been maybe not walking smoothly so one of the things she she distress she's talking about generating robots in robots to cross the dungeon or cross a world. Teach them how to walk. They step over cliffs over steps and all that sort of things and it turns out what happens is a lot of times robots will just sort of bill themselves up really tall and then just fall over to get to the debt to the destination rather than trying to walk. Because you you think oh we're going to get from A to B. Let's walk there. Let's a debate. But they're just literally. How do I move this object from A to B they just make a big tower and fall over and then then and then they're they're robot reaches the end of the world so it's it's crazy things like that that we're gonNA see in the future because this is what what robots are this is what algorithms are going going to learn from the data? We give it unless really really careful. So you're saying that we probably don't need to be worrying about robots and P. future coming back back to you murderous. Yeah I'm not too worried about it because all these robots just things like that I mean if you program is similar any computer or Computer Algorithm Arolla. It's it's all as good as the human that programmed at an oftentimes as a programmer. I can tell you that. Programmers are not particularly smart. Okay well that's I mean that's good news. I guess but I mean I mean how are they. I'm sure there's people that are going to try and an close this gap in AI knowledge knowledge by trying to fix that right. Yeah I mean a lot of it's just communication. You GotTa really understand what you're doing now and it's another example. She go and you see this. A lot is how like racist or misogynistic. algorithms could be when they're sorting people so many of our history so much of our history and our society eighty. Is that way so if you'll give society to train it is going to be like well. Okay you never hire anybody. That's there went to a college says women's College I'm I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA suggest resumes for anybody that went to a women's college all executives are named Bob. So if your name is Bob I'm GonNa hire you interesting so I mean it's hard to get around the stuff. Humans are infallible. I mean humans are sorry humans are definitely really we have flaws right just human nature And so I guess it makes sense that whatever we try to create will we'll also have the same flaws that we do in some representation right and maybe even worse because we don't even realize them until a computer kicking them apart or or. Let's say you do this all the time. So I'm going to do this all the time and like okay. So it's really so the none of the nothing. The bolts of it is like we're not going to build a super intelligent computer to fix all our problems until we understand what our problems are and how to fix them. It's a tool not not a cure all right and in a way that is not Human in nature they are not humans they are going to try to solve problems. Problems in extremely weird ways unless you are very specific in how you want that problem solved

"janelle" Discussed on The Design of Business - The Business of Design
"Everybody wanted to know what we were doing because we were not doing it for fame. Ain't now doing it for money. Were doing because we believed in our ideas and our visions and we believe that we could really change the world through those ideas in those visions. We met add up with donell at Hudson yards where she was talking about her partnership with Belvedere Vodka. This was not usual interviews situation. It was what you would call a press. junket get out and stay seated because of my short and on top of that. This was our first time being together as CO hosts. What a first time I could miss even in those first few minutes touched on a few themes that came to define the season for the design of business to business and design? As you're about to hear so the first thing we heard is about being yourself that's right. US Journal but coming out. You've recently been very very honest about your own identity and how you present yourself and how you live in the world and you live in your own body. It's a brand vision. It's your brand. It's brands associated with you. The people who choosing to work with you and stand with you. It's a beautiful beautiful thing with. I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about where this courage came from or of courage is even the right word. Yeah it's a little difficult for me to look at it like I did a courageous thing when I look at it and I think about all of you know of the stories. I've heard around the world about so many young. LGBTQ I plus kids and black girls who grow up like me and Baptist families who just grew believing they were not going to be accepted you know for living out loud and proud and embracing their sexuality and when you think about audit from that trip away me being a famous person or someone who has a little bit more instagram followers than somebody who has a thousand followers at the the core of it I could very well be one of those those kids who could be battling depression who could be ostracized from their families and their communities put out on the streets maybe even wanting to commit suicide. Because I don't feel like I belong in this world I will never be accepted and that is a courageous. Act to walk in your truth into living your truth and I just want to pat myself on the back and I want to pet so many other people's big or small older young for walking in their truth so that others can walk in. There's so when I listened to that and I think about what walking in her truth has meant to her work and the kinds of Rask's that she took her concept album dirty computer And I'M GONNA put it in her words let the rumors be true you. She'd been operating with this incredibly credibly interesting persona as an immaculate android and instead she became herself to the world when I looked back on that transition I saw that there's an incredibly brave and courageous act but listening to her now. I see that she has really done. The work is not just coming out as an LGBTQ PAN sexual person until she she solves self identifies now but it's coming out as the fact that she doesn't have to be one thing. She can be an amalgam of these things and it's not that she's she's performing for us she's just just being more and more and more herself. That's the theme. That for me is a resounding theme in so many of the conversations. We had this season. They're not playing to the crowd being who who they are as mothers as widows as educators as leaders as people walking in their truth and it makes them stronger. Take someone like Sara Hendra an engineering classroom like mine. I have a class called investigating normal. So for instance in my classroom we have worked with Alan Shepherd who's a wheelchair dancer her and Alice came to us and said we build a ramp with me I'm looking for a ramp. That's an entrance to a building. I WANNA ramp to us. It's physics to make dance as like just acceleration and resistance and so you can imagine what this does for these young engineering students. Because they're like it is physics right but like Alice isn't actually coming point us to ask for our help. Somehow we accidentally hit on this transitional moment for all of these people where it became clear that the risk of hiding was greater than the risk of living like yourself unapologetically. The unapologetic peace is the peace. I think that everyone needs to master. And there's a humor humor to it when we talk to Caroline Wonga about getting rid of her Cardigan. We left right but then we also cried listening to her talk about her story working her way up in a corporation operation that some might identify as being very mainstream very of a certain kind of a dimension that is not at all who she is. I used used to live in this existence where I had a closet that reflected me that I would do outside of work in this other closet. I hated that. Then I'm going to spend most of my day includes I hated and as I. I became more liberated and who I wanted to be. Part of what was really important was changing to dressing the way that I want to address working at target because it was actually hindering productivity and overall happiness because I hated what I had on. I didn't feel good. Really what we're talking about is the redesign of power if you think about what. The design of business might have been twenty five years ago. You know you're you're talking to people who have corner offices and they are really powerful and a very specific everything goes threw me commanded control kind of way and now we're seeing people rise to influence and power who are welcoming very much like our conversation with Elizabeth Alexander. The Mellon Foundation's endowment is six point. Eight billion dollars and so you know I'm just dislike. It's one of those like the ancestors speak site girl. Who are you not to do this? Your values are about art and culture and difference and righteousness and struggle and you can put money actual money towards that. What does it mean to come to a huge organization with a mind blowing big budget and be open and trust people who don't typically be trusted with big checks to do great things in the world to listen and learn without feeling threatened? This is a whole new way of thinking about leadership and so people who come to this very much like the people we've interviewed. The season are almost naturally oriented to including other people to uplifting other people amplifying their voices and being rewarded for it in the marketplace which is the new beast..
End of Decade Special
"I'm John Madden and I'm here with my co presenter. Under Harrison as we in our guest use our personal favorites that have kept don minds off brexit climate change and cheering for the past ten years. Hello Hello Sean how you doing. I'm very well your last chance to say this was the decade of and so what was it in the decade of this chancers the decayed of other everything. Everything fell to pieces both in good ways about ways at music. The music disintegrated and facilitates into a billion different things. So it's impossible to say this is the sound of the time that is captured. The moments that it doesn't happen anymore that everybody lives in their entire entirely sort of separates had medically sealed genre bubbles and but also I think it's a it was a time when the public realm realm the wheel. Shed sometimes finally properly replaced by million private realms. All you know create by social media bills created by your political bubbles and I it it it created a world where every body is only talking to a version of themselves. The other thing depressing sauna. Hi Sean John. Is the caving in pop culture as well as real culture et. You've gotta get used to losing all the time.

Is The real guitar flocking. These are the real close because the move replicas. They went after so you kind of lead through room by room thing which is beautifully recreated created to give you the feel of individual albums. But when you're in there there's lots of fun things like appeared nineteen seventies telephone. You can pick it up and listen to sound clips on the ton of interview interview. And there's a great little hand held I pod type thing which gives you video content but the actual exhibition itself is lacking in artifacts. I wanted to feel like I was in the room with the piano. Were you know sakes all was written. I wanted to fill this recreation of this video but it just felt a villa can experience a non exhibition.

How did Richard Russell Sound and talking to me was was a tough one I Observatory section is a really tough thing to put together. Because you're basically trying to marshal will people to talk about a dear friends and come in symptoms. Help ghosts might stuff. You're writing for them. And last year I did Dave about Chaz which is probably my most emotional experience the tense Richard Russell. Yeah it was It was hot and obviously it's a difficult subject because the way we wanted to get to make it absolutely correct and have helpless at the end and everything but yeah him saying that the Almond under fina rules brilliant thing.

I can't it so the new shape I think for certain artists. The album has always been an irrelevance and it was basically just a thing into kind of walk singles all kind of make money so the idea of the obviously you separate the album is a commercial enterprise versus. The album is an artistic enterprise so pop music never fully adapted to album as four my and that's not flow on in streaming aged that's why pulp is so preeminent because it's all about the single by think for the biggest deal interest in albums still buy albums or consume albums as we as we say yeah I don't think it's Dad I think it's very cut of a very binary thing decided that yes.

"janelle" Discussed on The Remarkable Leadership Podcast
"Truth to overcome over. Excuse me overcome overwhelm and achieve peace of mind. Here's the advanced accuweather looks like if you're going to be watching janelle donell welcome. Thank you so much kevin. I'm excited to be here. I'm glad to have you so here's the thing i've speaker coach coach author. How does it feel by the way to be able to hear author after your name. It's very exciting. This has been such a long journey to get here and i never word new how much work it was going to be to make it happen and it really takes a village so super excited. The book just came out this last week and and we're all celebrating in here in washington state or you go so as we're talking. The book is just come out but by the time you're all hearing these words being words exactly the books out and you're gonna definitely. I wanna get a copy in. You're definitely gonna want copy after we have this conversation but before we dive into the book and some of the great messages in it. I'm curious like how get here like sort of tells a little bit about your path that got you to starting companies writing books and all that sort of stuff sarah well. I started out as an entrepreneur just about twenty five years ago and i abandoned the daily grind of management and decided that i wanted to start my own company and that happened back in one thousand nine hundred eighty five and i started a small commercial cleaning company out of the living room of my home named management services north west as you talked about now m._s._n. W and i started there with just a handful of team. Members and the idea was really at that time aside business that that i can do in entrepreneur and also be there at home and raising my family and have more time for my family so that was the purpose of it and when i met with my small small team for the first time we talked about what we wanted to do what we wanted to accomplish and and we kept a pretty simple we said let's take really great care of our clients and they'll refer us to others and the company will grow and that's exactly what happened and as our clients had needs we grew the company and now today it's an industry leader and a full facility management company in the northwest in washington oregon and idaho and we take care of everything or commercial facilities from from the rape to the parking lot so that's really how i started and in as my entrepreneurial journey learned a lot of lessons along the way awesome so okay so it's a long way from that to writing a book. So what led you talk about. What's in the book in a minute but what led you to write the book. You said it's a long journey takes the village but what led you what did you say hey. I'm gonna take time and do this. Well thanks for asking. I was compelled to write the book because says in my own pursuit of success i discovered that there is a pervasive lie in the world today and it's really become an epidemic because so many people have i bought into it and they don't even know it and i had done the same thing and i had found myself. I'm on the treadmill. That society shows as the way to success. Am success. Lie is that we believe in our pursuit of success that we have to do more and more we have to take on more projects and more responsibilities we have to be on all the time we have to work harder longer and sacrifice everything even our our family our relationships our health and i found myself there and i decided to get off of that treadmill and take back control of my life and out of that. I decided to write this book to help others do the same so that's really the purpose of it is. I took back control of my my life. I found that it didn't work <hes> following the path society shows is the way to success. I needed to find my <music> own version of success and it felt so good and so right when i designed my own life and took my life back at i want to show others how to do it as really really cool so you know we get lots of people lots of folks like john now and like publicists all over there saying hey have my person even on your podcast kevin and so we get books here. Don't even tell you how many books we get here and i can tell you everybody when i got into this book we're again. We're talking with <unk> janelle berlin berlin who wrote the book the success lie. Here's what hooked me five simple clues to overcome overwhelm at because i think that is so true through that <hes> as leaders really humans but i'm guessing everyone who is listening or watching us now has feels that some of the time <unk> except for perhaps you because you wrote the how to do it anymore but the point is that that was the hook that got me to want to have you here. Obviously i look at the books and i spent some time yeah. Hey this is something to say that i think makes sense for our audience and it was the overwhelm idea. That was the big key so let's talk about that. Specifically of what are the <unk>. You've hinted at this a little bit. What are the sources of the overwhelm and and give us a couple of ideas about how we can move. Ask that as leaders with lots expected of us from all all directions you bet well i mentioned i'm in a ah commercial facility management industry and that is one that goes twenty four seven. I mean you can just be going all the time and i think all of us especially those that are business leaders. We have a lot on our play and entrepreneurs business professionals leaders. We're juggling so many balls walls that we just find it hard to keep up this fast paced world that we live in and because of that where overworked we're over committed and we're overwhelmed and and really the only way to get out of that is to realize that you're there and that's the first step one awareness right like this isn't eh. This isn't how everyone else is and it isn't really right and again as a leader me as an entrepreneur maybe as a whole 'nother level but as a leader in organization the station you know you've you've got you've got the you've got the things in your work. You've got the support of your team. You've got the expectations of folks of you and that's just at work right so we've got all of these things coming in from from everyplace as you said first step is figure out. Hey maybe there is another way hey no wonder i'm tired appeared and all of those sorts of ideas about how we can move through that you bet well i i talked about the discovery and i think as being a leader entrepreneur for many years i've worked with a lot of ceos and business leaders and it seems that the biggest problem is somewhere somewhere along the way people lose their sense of direction they begin to drift and in the book. I call it living on automatic. We have this unconscious living where we kind of stopped paying attention to what we're doing and where we're going. I live i can best illustrate this with the story where my husband and i live out in birch bayh on the ocean. We love to get out and kayak and there's nothing like being out on the kayak on a warm summer evening and watching the sunset. I'm down but what happens happens if we're not paying attention to the tides is we get ourselves carried out we start drifting and for not careful. We might get carried out to see when i'm just a good idea to me now. Definitely not a good idea <hes> in fact near where we live. There's a thoroughfare where the tankers and the big cruise ships come through through and imagine my little kayak facing fourteen story high cruise ship definitely not where we want to be so we we got ourselves back to shore. I'm still here as you can see safe and sound as well <hes> but what that kayak experience made me realize is that so similar to how our lives can be we get so caught up in our life working raising a family running a company that we stopped paying attention to where we're going and it may happen pretty quickly. Oftentimes it's over years and all of a sudden one day we wake up and we discover were not in a place that we ever wanted to be and that's that awareness piece. Maybe we put on thirty pounds that we didn't expect to have happened because of habits that had formed or maybe we're an estranged relationship because as of we haven't paid attention to that person maybe that was the most important person in our life and i think about our kids. I have kids and we when they're born and you think boy. I'm just gonna spend all those precious moments with them. I'm not gonna miss a thing and then in a blink of an either grown up and maybe we have missed some of those moments so that first step is realizing that and conscious living at living on automatic and then once we're aware of it then we can start taking the steps to what's really not working where where am in my life am i living on automatic and so you've gotta decide that i and figure out where my living automatic wherein my company is that taking us off track. Where is it personally taking us off track and then being able to make a decision and to make a change so the first step is we talked about is awareness. The second then and i talk about this in the book is the seven life as i really have a holistic holistic approach to to leadership in life. I don't believe work is over here and our life is over here. I believe we want this holistic approach. Where we're we're really making the decision to have that best life that one that's fulfilled in all areas so in that looking at how we're living on automatic and what's not serving swab looking at the different areas of our life our professional or personal our health our finances are relationships and more and what does that look like where we may be doing really well that we wanna sustain it and where is living on automatic not serving swell and then we can be intentional about making changes so that's the second point is instead of living intentionally our our brother on automatic. We wanna live intentionally then. Let me just break in there and say that you know you talk about seven areas of life a couple of weeks ago we had time ziglar on talking about the the circle of a wheel that the ziglar talked about for many many years same hi dea <hes> they have six spokes. You have seven but the point is the same and the thing that i love about what you just said. Important point here is that you might be on automatic automatic in some areas but not in all of them so it's not this is not well. I'm sort of stating slash asking. It's not like.
Colorado police say remains found of girl missing since 1984
"There is a a sad story out of Colorado though and it's a very very cold case in usually when we talk about these cold cases it's nice to have them solved this one is not solved but at least there is a certain amount of closure for a family this was a twelve year old girl from Colorado who went missing in nineteen eighty four thirty five years ago sure than forty seven today Jenelle Matthews is her name and she was last seen in a blue vest and a red shirt that she wore while performing in a Christmas concert with the Franklin middle school honor choir in Greeley Colorado this was December twentieth nineteen eighty four after the concert Janelle's friend and her friend's dad dropped her off about eight PM at the ranch style home where she lived with her dad Jim mom Gloria and sister Jennifer yep her parents were not home at the time that you now was dropped off at home but when they got home a couple of hours later they said that the front door was wide open and the Janelle had vanished her shoes were still in the house sitting beside a chair her stockings that the tides that she wore were thrown over the couch but she was gone no no arrests have ever been made in this case nineteen eighty four in you can imagine it's December twentieth it's just a few days before Christmas and your twelve year old daughter is missing taken from the home what is what it looks like and this was this was such an important case for that small community they even did a an anniversary of are they commemorated the anniversary of her disappearance just last December well Tuesday just a couple of days ago some oil field workers were digging a pipeline about a quarter mile west of where these roads come together one of the areas that she knew and they found a small hole that contained skull and bones and a severed jaw that had that had been fit with braces police who recovered the body from the scene confirmed the remains they were also found it with what looked like tattered blue and red close the very close to now was wearing when she was missing she also obviously had braces the really police sergeant says we are still chasing down leads in this thirty four year old murder case I'm sure that she had a sister I guess the sister now lives in Washington state her parents have retired they're living in Costa Rica Costa Rica I I I don't understand what you do with that information thirty four years after you've always he's presumed to be dead hi what is Ryan after thirty four years but still it says such a gram piece of closure my sister Jennifer remembered her as a strong independent opinionated twelve year old Jennifer was a junior in high school at the time and she was playing varsity basketball the night her sister disappeared so presumably the parents come home after the basketball game with their daughter to find their other daughter missing this is your says I'm grateful for this closure after thirty four years it does bring up some old wounds and some more questions maybe of what happened but we've received so much love and support already parents sad of course and grateful for all the work really police department has done this is okay this is the thing I I don't I was too young to kind of wrap my head around all of this but I remember from the bay area stories like Kevin Collins that name rings a bell but but there were stories about kids that would go missing and we would never see them again yeah it was it was very big in my childhood as well and and there this was about the time when we started seeing the pictures show up on milk cartons missing children became such an issue during the eighty is that president Ronald Reagan at the time addressed it yeah in fact he specifically referenced this case that we're talking about you know Matthews it was March of nineteen eighty five and he was asking newspaper editors to regularly published photos and articles about missing children so the police could better find leads about their whereabouts in this is a quote from the president at the time I learned about Janelle Matthews of Greeley Colorado who would have celebrated happy thirteenth birthday with her family just last month but five days before Christmas Janelle disappeared from her home letters like these touch as deeply and we've tried our best to help serve today I'd like to ask for your help he went on to say at one point that he hears about these things on a regular basis he has the president would hear about them and he said for the most part it's from letters from parents whose kids have gone missing and he says listen they cry out for help many through letters to me but a president can only do so

How Agiloft is Bringing Order to Legal Tech
"I wanna talk with calling Earl is the CEO of agile loft. And he's coming off the hills of legal tech, the world's largest legal tech event when low professionals evaluate legal document management software, but he's agile off so powerful contract managed. -ment solution is actually helping corporate legal professionals to mitigate their contract compliance risk, which of course, then allows them to drive consistency and best practices in document assembly. An ultimately automate even the most complex review and approval processes. The also comes with a deep configure ability that provides unparalleled control over legal processes and workflows allowing decision makers to realize that organizational objectives. I'm the company has won numerous awards recently, which put them firmly on my radar. So let's came on the show to find out more book up and hold on tight. So I can be meal is all the way to the heart of Silicon Valley. So we can speak with Cullen. Oh, CEO at at your left. So massive warm. Welcome to the show calling. Can you tell the listeners about who you are? And what you do. My name is Colin Powell. And I'm the CEO of I lost make have clouds code free. And pro software applications, for example, contract life cycle management service, stash compliance etcetera customers run the gamut from folks like raw, Chevron AT and T fortune five hundred companies to public sexual relations like USA USAF and startups like shopper Feis now. One of the big trends appears to be following me around at the moment as legal tag. I mean, the industry pays to be trying to shake off its stereotyped image of being slow slow to embrace change, and in particular technological change. And I believe you recently attended legal tech which listeners just tuning in a new to this. That's the largest legal technology event of the year where low professionals evaluate legal. And document management software amongst other things, can you tell me a little bit more about event, and what you actually walked away from it as well with the K messages that you took away from Evan b k message is the appetite for technology amongst legal professionals and companies days this there's a huge desire to automate legal operations, and contracts course, of lifeline of of model commerce, but astonishingly got estimates. That eighty five percent of organizations lack any enterprise contract management system companies using spreadsheets individual desktop somebody contract and the professionals we must legal tech rendering creasing crashes from a whole host of factors increase rate of change of the business requires faster execution, but above all the demands of government risk and compliance a more pressing than other and at the same. Time especially after the financial crisis. There's a lot of pressure on legal operation costs. So professionals are looking to technology both to ensure compliance and to reduce the the burden of maintaining that compliance and other any particular technology trends and drivers in the legal industry right now that, you know, saying also is it the clients that actually forcing the industry to change their ways. Would you say I I would say it's both the clients and the vendors are the primary changes were saying it's a drive to manage wres-, especially with respect to compliance, and they should have like GDP. Increasing concern of the protection of confidential personal information and corporate information and the pace of commerce is such that even the most deep-pocketed technology companies console to be complacent about the risks associated with enterprise to take one example in two thousand thirteen and that name don't tally sign the Cogan crates, it a little Facebook hat called this is digital life, which asks us questions for psychological profile, then turned around and in violation of Facebook's contractual terms, so sold those uses responses and personal data became Janelle ethica as a result of the scandal folks trust in the social media, John and they stopped using the platform company finally took steps to improve.
