"Extension 246. And there's always the national Domestic Violence Hotline, which is 1 807 997233. I know. I just rattled off a lot of numbers, but I want those numbers to get out there and what I'm hoping is that there's a massive P ece effort to let people know that even though you are trapped in quarantine with your domestic Partner. You can still reach out for help. And if you can't reach out for help, and hopefully there's a friend or loved one who can reach out on your behalf. So what were the questions that your friend asked you? And I'm asking this so that people know what kind of questions to ask someone they suspect. Might be in a dangerous situation. But, um Being a listener more than an Askar and is asking if they're okay, asking them to describe what they're experiencing. And asking if they need help. And if I think it's important to be empathetic and also to be open and also to realize that even if you the listener Talking to your friend might want them to get out immediately. It might not be possible. I mean, so many women are trapped in situations where they're financially dependent where their caregivers where they have Children, but it's really important that we prevent as much harm in danger as possible. Like for me. When I was working on the book, I wrote down the list for myself of advice that I wish I had been given, And if it's helpful, I'll read that advice. Now it's short because great So you do. Number one is document. What is happening include dates and correlate them with supporting material like email exchanges and photos. Number to tell someone, ideally, more than one person whom you trust not to tell anyone else. Number three figure out whom you can speak with who will know what to do such a domestic violence expert or a lawyer? Number four know that you are not alone and you're not crazy. Number five. It's okay to feel traumatized. But please don't feel ashamed. Number six. If your partner is not willing to acknowledge the problem and get professional help Get away. Your partner is probably not going to change. And then the last bits of advice, Sir. Don't worry about your abuser. Focus on yourself. You are the most important part of this equation. And I just want to close it. But that's my list of advice. There are some things that have been happening around the world and in this country that I feel are important to highlight. Canada recently announced that is part of its covert 19 economic response plan, it would invest Up to $40 million for shelters and sexual assault centers across the country who need national additional resource is to prevent or manage these outbreaks. And it was in the news just last week that Rianna through her clearing a Lionel Foundation and Jack Dorsey, the CEO Square and Twitter. We're co funding a $4.2 million grant to the Mayor's fund for Los Angeles to help domestic violence victims. They're finding that approximately 90 people per week domestic are being turned away from the shelters because of resource is so this grant will help cover those additional cases, and I feel like that's happening in Los Angeles. It's happening in Canada. You needs to happen all over this country and All around the world. There are plenty of people billionaires who can help solve not just this problem, but many problems and they need to step up because their billions have been made on the backs of other people's work, and those people are suffering right now, and they can support organizations that are on the front lines. Many of which are in desperate need of funding These domestic violence organizations, food banks, etcetera. I guess it Tanya Celeron them. The name of her forthcoming book is assume nothing and memoir of Intimate violence. You suffered abuse from your significant other Who at the time was former New York attorney General Eric Schneiderman. And I only bring that up because he's very powerful person and you write a lot about about him about what his That sense of power, and we all know that this is largely about power. For someone. You know, I would love for you to speak to the person who is listening right now and feels powerless because you went up against a very powerful person. What would you say to that woman who were child who's feeling powerless right now? Hi. Um, First of all my heart breaks for that person because, you know, I know that one of the reasons my story was able to be told was that because the perpetrator in my situation was a powerful person, If he hadn't been a powerful person, the media might not have cared. We're seeing stories about women now during this lockdown. Being subjected to horrific violence. And to them, I would say again you are not alone and you're not crazy. And there is help for you and that the most important part of this equation is you and that you you must seek help and there is help for you. And you know, it's really important to understand like it's until you're in it until I was in it. It's hard to explain the psychological manipulation that goes on his domestic violence. We think about physical abuse. But it is very much emotional abuse, its financial abuse. It's digital abuse, having your cell phones and computer activity monitored and it's Really hard cycle of abuse to break out of, which is why it's so important to talk to a professional. Who knows what to do. Who has seen thousands of cases like in my case, Jennifer Friedman. Sanctuary for family. It's almost like victims of abuse me to be unbreak washed. They need to be ungh ass slit. And so that's what I would say to women who feel like they might be powerless in this situation. It was my conversation with filmmaker China, several them about her fourth. Her forthcoming book, Assume Nothing. A Memoir of Intimate Violence will be published on February 23rd 2021. Up next. Margarita Guzman, executive director of the Violence Intervention program, talks about the services.

"We won't let you know for the rest of today's show. We'll be talking about domestic abuse. And we wanted to let you know this because we know there are a lot of little years around. This time this part of the year, but it's also important for people who have directly effects and for those of us who might need to be allies to know about these things. So I encourage you to listen later on demand if it isn't the right time right now. The New York Times reported last week that musician F K twigs filed a lawsuit against her ex boyfriend actor Shyla above alleging that he abused her physically, emotionally and mentally over the course of their relationship. According to The New York Times. The lawsuit says LeBoeuf once woke her up in the middle of the night, choking her and that he quote knowingly gave her a sexually transmitted disease and that he quote would squeeze or grab her to the point of bruising. Those were just a few of the allegations. Twigs has been praised for her bravery and coming forward told The Times quote. I like to be able to raise awareness on the tactics that have users used to control you and take away your agency. We know that abuse can happen to anyone. Even if you're a person who has the means to leave and up and go somewhere else. It is. The covert 19 pandemic has exacerbated dangerous situations. People have been forced to spend time at home. According to sociologist Marine Has Marion Hester of Bristol University. Domestic violence normally intensifies during the Times of year. Family spend more time together the holidays and summer vacations. We spoke with filmmaker Tanya Celeron. Um in April, just after she'd written a piece for The New York Times about the pandemics. Impact on resource is for survivors and families. It was called Where can domestic violence victims turn during covert 19? Tanya also shares her story in her forthcoming book, Assume Nothing. A Memoir of Intimate Violence, which will be out in February of 2021. I began our conversation by asking Tanya about a statistic that shocked her. When she first began researching domestic violence. According to the CDC, one in three women are abused, harassed, stalked by an intimate partner. So that's by someone that they know and at this time during the pandemic during the lockdown when we're looking out for those who are more susceptible to the coronavirus. Elderly, those pre existing conditions. We can also be other two quite violence victims who are more at risk. Now. I also think of their Children who are more exists because you're not in school or daycare. Mental health repercussions will last a lifetime. And I think of myself as a child, witnessing domestic violence when I was growing up between my parents, and I wonder how much more scary it would have been for me if I had been locked down into that situation. And my heart breaks for those Children who are in that situation, the mental health repercussions taking the last a lifetime, and we've already seen around the country takes of 20% or Maurin domestic violence in cities like Seattle, San Antonio in New York City. It's starting to happen. There was a woman killed last week who You know tragically, her business was focused on the wellness of woman, Gabrielle Gottlieb, and she was killed by her spurned former fiance. We also know that firearm sales are rising around the country, and it is a well known fact that perpetrators of gun violence are often perpetrators of domestic violence. So all of these are negative indicators that I feel we have an opportunity to get ahead of because we've seen already in countries like China and France. What happens if you don't get ahead of it? What's the biggest misconception about domestic abuse that people should know? Domestic violence, domestic abuse. It can happen to anyone. It happens to millions of Americans. In this country alone. It is worldwide. It is global, and what's so insidious about it is that it can happen to anyone. I remember when it happened to me. People were shocked because Outwardly, I strike them as an independent on strong woman, but abuses are very skilled at manipulation. They're often charismatic, their narcissistic and by the time you realize you're in an abusive relationship You've been trapped into it. And so I think it's important during this time of lockdown that for people who are now more vulnerable in domestic violence, situations for their friends and loved ones to be more alert to them. And to reach out to them and potentially to be their lifelines. I guess a tiny silver on them. She's writer, filmmaker producer and she's the author of The forthcoming memoir. Assume Nothing, a Memoir of Intimate violence, and I understand What We Don't Want to talk Too much about your memoir, because a lot of your memoir is about About how you would get yourself out of the situation, and that's just not possible for people right now. But I did want to ask you about Thea our ship because it was a friend who came to you. And And talk to you about your situation. Um, yes. I mean, Ally ship is everything right now, Um, you know, in the same way that we are looking out for those who are more vulnerable to the virus because of their health conditions, I think it is also important to look out for our friends and loved ones who might be in domestic violence situations. And in my case, it took my opening up to Friend who wasn't imposing her opinion on me. She was asking me questions that elicited answers that indicated to her that maybe I needed to reach out for help. And she just asked me. She didn't force me. Would you be willing to talk to a friend of hers? Was domestic violence expert and that person is Jennifer Friedman, who's illegal director of sanctuary for families, and after I spoke with Jennifer Friedman, it was like the scales fell off of my eyes. And I realized quickly what I needed to do, which was take extricate myself and she really helped me and I feel like my story. I mean, one of the reasons I wrote the book. Aside from writing my way out of the darkness of my own experience with reviews was also to provide AH story that people could connect to see that it doesn't become their story, too, and also to provide resource is for people because there is help like right now, even during this pandemic, there are resource is that people can turn to For instance, Governor Cuomo, in his briefing the Friday before last was asked by a reporter about domestic violence victims and there is in New York State hotline. That's 1 809 426906. In an emergency to call 911 immediately. Organizations like sanctuary for families have nearly expanded legal help lines with lawyers answering live from 9 to 5. And that number is 2123496009.

more susceptible to the coronavirus the elderly those with pre existing conditions we can also be alert hi Thailand victims who are more at risk now I also think of their children who are more expensive you're not in school or day care to mental health repercussions will last a lifetime of myself as a child witnessing domestic violence when I was growing up between my parents and I wonder how much more scary it would have been for me if I had been locked down into that situation and my heart breaks for those children who are in that situation this is six now I mean we in twenty percent

intimate violence you suffered abuse from your significant other who at the time was former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and I only bring that up because he's very powerful person and you write a lot about about him about what his that sense of power and we all know that this is largely about power for someone you know I would love for you to speak to the person who is listening right now and feels powerless because you went up against a very powerful person what would you say to that woman who for child who's feeling powerless right now I well first of all my heart breaks for that person because I know that one of the reasons my story was able to be told was that because the perpetrator in my situation was a powerful person if he hadn't been a powerful person the media might not have cared but we're seeing stories about women now during this lockdown being subjected to horrific violence and to them I would say again you are not alone and you are not crazy and there is help for you and that the most important part of this equation if you and that you eat you must seek help and there is help for you and you know it's really important to understand it until you're in it like until I was in it it's hard to explain the psychological manipulation that goes on the mystic violence we think about physical abuse but it is very much emotional abuse its financial abuse its digital abuse having your cell phones and computer activity monitor and eat a really hard cycle of abuse to break out which is why it's so important to talk to a professional who knows what to do great seeing thousands of cases like in my case Jennifer Friedman from sanctuary for families it's almost like the victims of abuse need to be on brainwashed they need to be on gas flat and so that's what I would say to women who feel like they might be powerless in this situation I did speak with Tanya summer autumn author of the forthcoming book assume nothing a memoir of intimate violence I hope you come back and speak to us for your book gets official pub date Tanya I would love to Alison I am a huge fan and I think what you're doing on your show is so important right now we need you thanks honey thank you so much UP next Christmas communications director of the national mystic views hotline Cher's resources to help people currently isolated who are in.

"Locked down kind of situation experts are warning of the potential for additional public health crisis for women and children facing domestic violence maker Tanya summer right now tells her own story in her upcoming book assume nothing a memoir of intimate violence with publication date has been pushed she recently wrote for The New York Times that article about the corona virus pandemic impact on resources for survivors and families it was titled where can the messed up pilots victims turn during code nineteen Tanya welcome to all of it thank you so much Allison thank you so much for highlighting this tragic byproduct of the lockdown the mystic violence when you first began researching this topic what was a statistic that really shocked you were surprised you well according to the CDC one in three women are abused harassed or stalked by an intimate partner events by someone that they know sh and at this time during the pandemic during the lockdown when we're looking out for those who are more susceptible to the coronavirus the elderly those who pre existing conditions we can also be alert hi Thailand's victims who are more at risk now I also think of their children who are more expensive if you're not in school or day care to mental health repercussions will last a lifetime of myself as a child witnessing domestic violence and I was growing up between my parents and I wonder how much more scary it would have been for me if I had been locked down into that situation and my heart breaks for those children who are in that situation this is six now I mean we in twenty percent or higher okay we are having a hard time you know we're having a hard time with your cell phone can you change your position just a little bit you're breaking up there and I never Singapore and US comport information let's try again we're talking about children who find themselves in situations they can't escape yes this is better that's better yes okay great sorry about that I was talking about and thinking about the children who are in lockdown with their parents in domestic violence situations and wondering how much more scary it would have been for me being a child who witness domestic violence if I had been locked down into that situation and my heart breaks for those children who are in that situation now because mental health repercussions you can last a lifetime we've already seen around the country six of twenty percent or more in domestic violence in cities like Seattle San Antonio in New York City it's starting to happen there was a woman killed last week you know tragically her business was focused on the wellness supplements Gabrielle got leave and she was killed by her current former fiancee we also know that fire arms sales are rising around the country and it is a well known fact that perpetrators of gun violence are often perpetrators of domestic violence so all of these are negative indicators but I feel we have an opportunity to get ahead because we've seen already in countries like China and France what happens if you don't get ahead of it what's the biggest misconception about domestic abuse that people should now the mystic violence domestic abuse the it can happen to anyone it happens to millions of Americans in this country alone it is worldwide it is global and what's so insidious about it is that it can happen to anyone I remember when it happened to me people were shocked because outwardly I strike them as an independent and strong woman but of abusers are very skilled at manipulation they're often charismatic narcissistic and by the time you realize you're in an abusive relationship you've been trapped into it and so I think it's important during this time of the lock down that for people who are now more vulnerable in domestic violence situations for their friends and loved ones to be more alert to them and to reach out to them and potentially to be their lifelines my guess is telling us over on them she writer filmmaker producer and she is the author of the forthcoming memoir assume nothing a memoir of intimate violence and I I understand what we don't wanna talk too much about your memoir because a lot of your memoirs about about how you would get yourself out of the situation and that's just not possible for people right now but I did want to ask you about them the ally ship because it was a friend who came to you and thanks talk to you about your situation and if I'm not ally ship is everything right now you know in the same way that we are looking out for those who are more vulnerable to the virus because of their health conditions I think it is also important to look out for our friends and loved ones who might be interested violent situations and in my case it took my opening up to a friend who wasn't imposing her opinion on me she was asking me questions that elicited answers that indicated to her that maybe I needed to reach out for help and she just asked me she didn't force me would you be willing to talk to a friend of hers who was domestic violence expert and that person is Jennifer Friedman who is legal director at sanctuary for families and after I spoke with Jennifer Friedman it was like the scales fell off of my eyes and I realized quickly what I needed to do which was take extricate myself and she really helped me and I feel like my story I mean one of the reason I wrote the book aside from writing my way out of the darkness of my own experience with reviews what also to provide a story that people could connect to so that it doesn't become their story too and also to provide resources for people because there is help like right now even during this pandemic there are resources that people can turn to for instance governor Cuomo in his briefing the Friday before last was asked by a reporter about domestic violence victims.

Francisco wanted to give its homeless addicts their best shot at stability would go after the open air drug trade with every possible tool including immigration law however unlikely such a change of

Medicare for all quote on quote which is Medicaid for all which means just welfare medical care for illegal aliens so there and they're all on record and died there I've got a story in my stack today

healthcare to illegal aliens I mean there's no such thing as free healthcare and and everybody who who has health care understands that so why are you going to give this this to illegal aliens who were most of whom are on the welfare of one form or another to begin with as well as we know from heart the Harvard University study about dreamers it out nobody wants this but but they wanted did you

"In particular because if we don't have the places for people to live that they can afford to live and that's a big part of why we see even more people living in their vehicles that San Francisco mayor the then mayor of science San Francisco London breed as she grew up in public housing loading you also were homeless for a time can you talk about how you were able to well you say nothing solves homelessness like a home talk about what happened with you and how you ended up not being homeless I I mean my my circumstance whatever ending up homeless was was rather different than what we see in the streets today or even that what we saw in the early nineteen eighties mind was in a high and related issue it was something that I think we've experienced for years it just there was so many fewer of us my mom died and my father didn't want us there so we ended up bouncing around in the streets I got very fortunate in that I ended up that hospitality house in the tenderloin of community organization that way predates the advent of contemporary homelessness and I became part of the fabric of the community in addressing the fact that so many of our neighbors in our community members were finding themselves with no way to live and I actually was able to use the experience that I was going through and how I was you know get over feeling sorry for one's self by helping out other community members that are even in a worse place in your in and that's how we should be managing this issue this homelessness should not be a career choice for people in poverty shouldn't be a career choice for people we should be looking at how to systemically address the massive yet and and an economic inequalities that we see the commodification of healthcare the commodification of housing education works of modifying our public parks in our public streets through business improvement districts that are now running hold neighborhoods so we need to understand that neo liberalism is killing our country and we need to really understand that there is a massive human rights organizing campaign at you know at. like with the poor people's campaign like we have to connect these issues and understand that it's not a San Francisco issue like homelessness exists this sixty two thousand shelter beds in New York City there's over fifty thousand in Chicago over forty thousand in LA this is a serious problem that's been around since Reagan cut the affordable housing budget in the early nineteen eighties and we're all living Reagan's wet dream of neo liberalism in America he called at the Reagan revolution London breed talk about the units being torn down and replaced with fewer units you didn't mention that the new units are all mixed income units so only a third of the people that were living in a public housing buildings that Clinton under hope six tore down were ever able to get back into those units in family homelessness went sky high when that program was implemented in the nineteen nineties. Jennifer freedom back can you talk about the connection between gentrification and homelessness I'm in San Francisco the enormous disparity in wealth on the attack com boom here that tech companies that have just changed the landscape of the city. yeah absolutely I mean we had an existing almost crises that was dramatically worsened we have a situation where today it's so hard to get off the streets because those informal housing arrangements are being able to move into a residential hotel share a room all these even living in a garage I mean all of these options are have you know have basically disappeared on the real estate speculation here is out of control and we have thousands of folks who lose their house in San Francisco and end up homeless and for many of them their stock homeless because there's really not a way out and you know that's a big reason why we saw a thirty percent increase in homelessness with this last almost count was because of this and and estimates are between about you know well we have some housing for homeless folks in San Francisco there's you know for everyone housing unit we have about two or three people who are stuck homeless and we have a couple more people for that each unit that are becoming homeless every year so this is a huge issue and you know who we're talking about primarily is who gets preyed on and you can look at the fiction data and see it it's seniors it's people with disabilities the poor communities where people of color lives have been particularly targeted we have rent control in San Francisco so would but we don't have a vacancy control so what that means is that if a landlord gets the household how they can Jack up the ran as much as they like so there's this huge incentive along real estate speculators to push tenants out and then that way they can they can read the unit or sell off the unit at much higher income so it's a it's a massive problem and that's why we're seeing up and down the west coast such a dramatic rise in homelessness. certain neighborhoods in San Francisco I have begun to placing boulders big gigantic rocks on sidewalks to keep people from setting up tents on the sidewalks as that tree Jennifer. yeah I mean I think it's pretty emblematic of you know the lack of any kind of action on this issue we're not we're not gonna solve this issue and it you know and it's it's tough for the neighbors of course to have homelessness out there but it's so much worse for the folks who are homeless I mean we're talking about losing decades off your life through this experience we're talking about really just you know mass of misery and the city's primary response is a police response like cities across the country to move folks from place to place in this particular situation the same can't meant had been moved around basically in a circle instead of you know solutions coming forward to get to get folks off the streets and in the housing I'm shocked yeah let's talk about those solutions for example what do you think of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders housing plan. I've looked at that really closely and it's exactly the kind of thing that we need to be talking about I think it's kind of troubling that it took trump to bring it up though for this to become infused into the presidential debate I mean Bernice had this in his platform for a while but I'm really hopeful that the other democratic camp candidates will a look at this as well because what what's going on here I mean we have millions of people who can't afford housing on minimum wage jobs we have folks with disabilities and elders that are out on our streets we have families with children I mean in San Francisco alone we have three thousand children that experience homelessness every year we have pregnant women who are ending up in preterm labor mostly African American this is affecting two more generations to come and so it's really it's really time to gets here we one of our members just the other day lost her she was pregnant and lost her baby and you know how this is really a very dramatic situation it's a huge human rights issue that this country is facing on the things about Bernese platforms at a really positive is used as looking at investing in public housing in improving the conditions and expanding public housing he's also got in there at the creation of new social housing which is kind of a type of public housing where you have childcare and and a kind of a democratic self governance that's in place that's a really beautiful concept used in in Europe in different places but you know we need to make sure that poor people in this country have a safe and decent place to call home just as a basic because there's this massive disparity everywhere in the country not just in the west coast every city in in in the country has the same problem there's no place where you can really afford rants I'm on a minimum wage job you're overpaying or you don't have enough to cover it and so we we really would like to see this be a lot take a lot more serious. Lee according to The New York Times the median home price in San Francisco is one point three million dollars Paul headline in the San Francisco Chronicle at the end of July Alameda county agrees to lease former jail to Oakland for homeless shelter as we begin to wrap up if you can say what at this point you feel needs to be done. and I think that the VA needs to get back into providing housing for veterans I think the United States department of agriculture needs to reinvigorate and respond it's housing program they used to build over thirty thousand units a year of affordable housing in rural communities those programs are completely and totally gone I think that hide needs to replace the fifty four billion dollars a year and this is every year over now for thirty five years homelessness is not new these boulders are not new the state of California puts out boulders all the time the city of Portland Oregon puts out boulders to keep people from camping there these neighbors didn't just make this up there in your waiting what it is that they see their local and state governments doing the federal government all the candidates for Democrat NY are for Republicans should be looking at the role of hide in ensuring that people have a decent place to live because housing that isn't a commodity that is it for people is a worthwhile housing program just like the homeowner housing subsidy program through the IRS which is over a hundred and forty billion dollars a year if we can afford a hundred and forty billion dollars a year and housing subsidies for homeowners we sure as hell can do better than thirty four billion dollars a year and housing subsidies for poor people. well I want to thank you both for being with us and of course we're going to continue to follow this issue not only in San Francisco and Los Angeles but around the country I wanna thank Jennifer Friedman boxing sick of director of the coalition on homelessness based as here in San Francisco and Paul Boden executive director of rap that's the western regional advocacy project a homeless advocacy group when we come back the trump administration recently revoke California's authority to set stricter auto emission standards but the state is fighting back stay with us. you. he..

I here's a vagrant story from San Francisco I've read a couple of stories apparently this one deals with neighbors there's one particular section of San Francisco if you know the city at all it's got a real problem with that the whole city does but the tenderloin is interesting name John is your is your loin tender. well if you'd like to poke at it. anyway a group of neighbors banded together and they have placed boulders along the sidewalk too did terrible his people from camping out this is that this is actually the mission Delores neighborhood in a place called Clinton park they say that it's meant to keep drug users from having a space to shoot up as they camped out overnight. David Smith told a local TV station bill shoot up and stay overnight a bunch of my neighbors we all chipped in a few hundred dollars and this is what we came up with but he's gonna be hard to move. yes is like like the flower boxes that they tried to put up and vanished any kind of put them between trees and polls so there's really no room anymore with the boulders are. and amazingly in the story the public works people say they're not going to do anything about it a San Francisco public works department spokeswoman said the city had no part in putting the boulders here and since they aren't blocking the sidewalk is no plans to remove them because there's there's more sidewalk there but the bird they put the sort of the front by the curb right but John's right there big you're not gonna they're huge yeah well they probably look at it the city itself. this is gonna take too many people too much time and we're gonna have to get heavy trucks and I wonder how they got them in there you wonder that because otherwise you know most of the songs are making people take fences down as we learned last hour this is how far gone it is all right so you have all the pope and the needles on the streets of this neighborhood. and the the city's response was not to arrest these people for defecating public are using drugs in public they put a public toilets and then not only did you get your own toilet they hired a group of mates they call it a six person patrol team to clean up. to clean up the the the the physical. what is that really your hiring maids to clean up after humans pooping on the straight and you're giving them toilets and you notice the toilets against didn't work because they needed six people on the boat team. no well you will rest these people. your last step and you charge that this is what creates a huge health hazard this is how you get type is about a play. one of the neighbors said it's working since we put the rocks in it's helped it's something we've got to do something for people trying to do the putting up fences they're putting up a planter boxes they're putting up boulders they're doing everything they can the city's aren't helping get all big just refused to go away I don't even answer if you complain they don't they don't they don't respond anymore this being. he knew story here comes the other side Jennifer Friedman Bach executive director of the coalition on homelessness says there's a name for that it's called anti homeless architecture yeah right exactly you've got it yeah okay. that is anti home by the way they tell you got another response from bonds office no. all right if you if you sent in a picture if you want to go of the homeless in canton at the VA yeah I was about a mile from my house and then you want to know the address that's right right eight first wrote this is Ricky angel I know this guy's real I don't know from being played is a constituent advocate in Mike von ins office you should be able to look up the staff yeah I'm going to do that thank you for reaching out to our office is the old that letter I'm I'd be more than happy to follow up with this homeless in camp and could could you provide me with the approximate address or intersection and I wrote Sam said the Boulevard and bring him I'm sure you know about it are you waiting for robotic plague before you do something by the way my wife stepped in human feces while walking dead Samoset down the weight of their dresser she looked up and she saw there a few steps away pulling his pants up like I said thanks for the good work well he responded again any ghosts thanks for letting me know I will follow up on this if there's anything else I can assist with please let me know. what is warm letters is a bot it does sound like is it is this a comedian. this is what you get. you show them pictures there openly defecating you government address it's been covered on television and this this alleged Ricky angel pretends he doesn't really know what's going on and he's in no hurry this the the exchange started when a good start yes September eleventh no even earlier than the house earlier yeah yes September fourth is when I first sent them. and I'll keep playing along sure Johnny can't can't fight ever mark as new houses started an impeachment inquiry into president trump.

I here's a vagrant story from San Francisco I've read a couple of stories apparently this one deals with neighbors there's one particular section of San Francisco if you know the city at all it's got a real problem with that the whole city does but the tenderloin is interesting name John is your is your loin tender. well if you'd like to poke at it. anyway a group of neighbors banded together and they have placed boulders along the sidewalk too did terrible this people from camping out this is that this is actually the mission Delores neighborhood in a place called Clinton park they say that it's meant to keep drug users from having a space to shoot up as they camped out overnight. David Smith told a local TV station bill showed up and stay overnight a bunch of my neighbors we all chipped in a few hundred dollars and this is what we came up with. these can be hard to move. yes is like like the flower boxes that they tried to put up and vanished any kind of put them between trees and polls so there's really no room anymore with the boulders are. and amazingly in the story the public works people say they're not gonna do anything about it a San Francisco public works department spokeswoman said the city had no part in putting the boulders here and since they aren't blocking the sidewalk is no plans to remove them because there's there's more sidewalk there but the bird they put them in sort of the front by the curb right but John's right there big you're not gonna they're huge yeah well they probably look at it the city itself. if this is going to take too many people too much time and we're gonna have to get heavy trucks and I wonder how they got them in there you wonder that because otherwise you know most of the songs are making people take fences down as we learned last hour this is how far gone it is all right so you have all the poop and the needles on the streets of this neighborhood. and the the city's response was not to arrest these people for defecating public are using drugs in public they put a public toilets and then not only did you get your own toilet they hired a group of mates they called a six person patrol team to clean up. to clean up the the the the physical. what is that really your hiring maids to clean up after humans pooping on the straight and you're giving them toilets and you notice the toilets against didn't work because they needed six people on the boat team. no well you will rest these people. your last step and you charge this is what creates a huge health hazard this is how you get type is at the bottom play. one of the neighbors said it's working since we put the rocks in it's helped it's something we've got to do something for people trying to do the putting up fences they're putting up a planter boxes they're putting up boulders they're doing everything they can the city is already helping get all big just refused to go away I don't even answer if you complain they don't they don't they don't respond anymore this being. he knew story here comes the other side Jennifer Friedman Bach executive director of the coalition on homelessness says there's a name for that it's called anti homeless architecture yeah right exactly you've got it yeah okay. that is anti home by the way they tell you that in the response from bonds office no. all right if he if he sent in a picture if you want to go of the homeless in canton at the VA yeah I was about a mile from my house and then you want to know the address that's right right eight first wrote this is Ricky angel I know this guy's real I don't know from being played is a constituent advocate in Mike von ins office you should be able to look up a staff yeah I'm going to do that thank you for reaching out to our office is the old that letter I'm I'd be more than happy to follow up with this homeless in camp and could could you provide me with the approximate address or intersection and I wrote Sam said the Boulevard and bring him I'm sure you know about it are you waiting for robotic plague before you do something by the way my wife stepped in human feces while walking dead Samoset down the weight of their dresser she looked up and she saw there a few steps away pulling his pants up like I said thanks for the good work well he responded again any ghosts thanks for letting me know I will follow up on this if there's anything else I can assist with please let me know. what is warm letters is a bot it does sound like is it is this a comedian. this is what you get. you show them pictures there openly defecating you give me an address it's been covered on television and this this alleged Ricky angel pretends he doesn't really know what's going on and he's in no hurry this the the exchange started when a good start yes September eleventh though even earlier than the house earlier yeah yes September fourth is when I first sent them. and I'll keep playing along sure Johnny can't can't fight ever mark as new houses started an impeachment inquiry into president trump the actions.

"I'm Mary Louise Kelley and I'm ari Shapiro great Britain's outgoing prime minister Theresa may met with her top security advisers today to work out a response to Iran's seizure of a British flag ship in the strait of Hormuz last week the decision a strong condemnation of Iran for quote an act of state piracy the British government pointedly decided not to join a US military effort to protect commercial shipping in the Persian Gulf and we're joined now by NPR national security correspondent Greg my re here in the studio to tell us more Hey Greg Hey Arif so first what if today's developments mean well Britain sending two very clear messages first it says it's a very angry with Iran for the seizure of the ship and second it's still not willing to go along with the U. S. in this maximum pressure campaign against Iran after this government security meeting of Britain's Foreign Secretary Jeremy hunt spoke to parliament and let's have a listen Iran had no rights to obstruct the ship's passage left to learn Portella was that for an active state piracy so Arron sees this ship the steno imperil last Friday and it's now in an Iranian report around also released a video of the crew members it shows bunch of guys in red jumpsuits most of them Indian citizens sitting around the kitchen table so if the U. K. is not going to join this US led effort how does Britain plan to protect its ships in the Persian Gulf will hunt said the Britons going to try to put together a European led mission to protect commercial shipping in the Gulf we have no details on on what countries might be willing to sign up on this for this the the British government was under criticism for not protecting it ship in the Gulf and one option would be to join this US coalition that they the Americans are trying to put together to protect all the oil tankers going in and out of the Gulf book hunt made a very clear that's not what Britain once here years again talking about this potential European naval group it will not be part of the U. S. maximum pressure policy on Iran because we remain committed to preserving the Iran nuclear agreements Greg this seems like a pretty dramatic split between allies especially coming after president trump pulled the U. S. out of the Iran nuclear agreement and Britain France and Germany along with other countries try to stay in it yeah initially is seen that this Iranian action might have the effect perhaps unintended from Iran's point of view of of bringing the U. S. in Europe together at least when it comes to protecting the the Persian Gulf on the US has been trying for weeks to put together this coalition even has a name for it operation Sentinel but what it doesn't have his actual partners and the US military says it's still working on and this Iranian seizure of the British flag ship does not come in a vacuum there's been so much else going on in the waters off Iran remind us of the context for this will Arron says that that you did this for very of for very specific reason that the one of its oil tankers was seized near Gibraltar on July fourth of written said this was violating E. U. sanctions on Iran says well we're not part of the E. U. that's none of our business hours are **** never should have been season this is why were acting now Enron had another note today it is said it arrested seventeen people apparently all rainy ends claiming they were working for the CIA and that some of them will be executed how does the US respond to that president trump said totally false story NPR's Greg my re thank you thanks sorry all right so your move Britain as we just heard the official response to Iran's seizing a British flag ship is a statement of strong condemnation no diplomatic measures no economic measures have been announced to no sanctions no kicking out diplomats but who knows the fact is Jeremy hunt the foreign minister we just heard there is not one hundred percent sure he will still be in the job by the end of this week for that matter it's not one hundred percent clear who will be prime minister or defense secretary either in other words it is shaping up to be quite the week in Britain and for more on that let's bring in guardian columnist Jonathan Friedland who is in London hi there hello hi so quite how unsettled do things fuel in London tonight it is a week old transition on Tuesday the country will know who the next prime minister will beat because there's been a leadership contest within the ruling Conservative Party in either the man you research to Jeremy hunt or he's rival Boris Johnson who will be that is the former flamboyance mayor of London and then briefly a predecessor of Germany Hans is foreign secretary most people it seems pretty certain ticked jumps in to take over but that would even happen for another twenty four hours after that on the Wednesday meetings there is this kind of old into regular in the United States you have a three month transition we have this one over a period of hours right it it means that this week there is a degree off on certain I was in London over the weekend and pouring over all of your newspapers the headlines were all about Ron and the fears of war it made me wonder do political leaders whoever they may be but for the week in the U. K. do they even have to head space to think about anything besides brexit I think there is very little band with civil anything but breaks it in D. one of the patches for the job that Boris Johnson has been making is let's get this out of the way so that we can get on with all the things people are sick and tired of it on Iran isolated is Britain how isolated desert feel I'm thinking of this is a a former employer great power that is in the throes of a nasty divorce with it you your end relationship with its great ally the US is unpredictable let's say that's right I think this Iran issue has brought into very shoppers leaks quite what a big if you also made mistake could strategic choice bricks it would be because he is a crisis where did to options available all really quite binary either you go with our tall trump wants to you it has withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal and once the Europeans to go the same way Ole you started Europeans who want to maintain that deal and Britain so far because it was a brilliant goals to negotiate you keep deal once that to persist and looks for allies and yet right now the Europeans are looking up Britain's saying I thought you were out of the door and yet the Americans is saying if you want to protect your fuel ships might compare the sector state said just today that's something you the U. K. that is sold out we're not going to cut your back so there's a kind of isolation and loneliness it's just a remarkable thing to think that we might be sitting here in the summer of twenty nineteen contemplating a Briton not sure what allies you can count on if any no I mean foreign policy Bailey featured in the referendum campaign to three years ago and yes it's a massive cool because Britain has in the phrase punched above its weight since nineteen forty five partly because they had good story United States but also it was a baby in these close network of alliances relationships with the European Union but wrenching itself from that does it become not any weaker but less strategically valuable even to the United States if we no longer part of that he's a big judgments and yet they barely featured Jonathan Freedland of the guardian speaking with us from unsettled London tonight Jennifer Friedman thank you many thanks two years ago hackers hit the credit bureau Equifax and expose the data of nearly a hundred fifty million people that's more than half the adult population of the United States now some of the people affected by that breach stand to be compensated Equifax will pay up to seven hundred million dollars in fines and monetary relief to consumers we're joined by in pairs Chris Arnold who has been following today's settlement with state and federal regulators hi Chris Hey are you so is most of this money actually gonna go to people who are affected in some way by the breach well most of it well it looks like upwards of four hundred million dollars will go to those people we spoke to California's Attorney General hobby year the Sierra who was involved in the settlement along with other state regulators and here's what he said we're trying to make sure that anyone who was impacted by this data security breach has a chance to recover their costs if you lost your privacy if identity thieves have taken advantage of your private information you deserve to be compensated by Equifax now people can conceivably get up to as much as twenty thousand dollars to get a document the time and what all this cost them for many people it'll pride be a lot a lot less also if you spend money and time just signing up for preventive stuff like credit monitoring or whatever else you have to do I the goal is that you will be compensated for that too and they'll pay any gets twenty five dollars an hour for up to twenty hours that you had to do with that I'm sure many people are asking how do I get the money they have to do in service since there were that many people of all the rich yes there is a website as the rough in is Equifax breach settlements dot com I'm gonna say that again because it's radio Equifax breach settlement dot com assuming the court approved the settlement people go there and they'll tell you what to do what you have to do this with in the next six months to get compensation within six months of court approval of the settlement right it's always hard to get a sense of the magnitude penalties with huge huge companies is seven hundred million dollars view it as a meaningful deterrent for a company as big as Equifax well it depends on who you talk to but with consumer advocates not so much with which out to Edwards went ski with the nonprofit consumer advocacy group US per again he says look I mean it's great that people are getting some money back that's fantastic but as far as a real effective deterrence I don't think it's a lot of money I think it's more of Hey go away money rather than a real penalty or a punishment and I think that's a calculated that by Equifax today one in there in the go she hated a parking ticket rather than a punishment at least some of the people affected by the breach feel the same way we spoke with Jessamine west from Randolph remind her information was stolen she says and here's her reaction that people be getting some money back garbage rate like money isn't going to like what we need is an overhaul of the way thank operations are allowed to handle our personal information it's interesting crystal like Equifax wasn't the hackers here right Equifax got hacked and yet everybody wants to punish Equifax there were hearings in Congress when news broke lawmakers were outraged explain why there was so much anger at the company that in all likelihood sees itself as the victim sure you know at first a hundred fifty million people but what Equifax has in its sort of vaults of information see if your credit score which sell as you get a mortgage or a long to get your credit card numbers social security number you know and this expose that.

"Jesse thorn. My guest is Jennifer Friedman. She's the host and creator of the adult swim special series, soft focus. She's also a comic and writer who's written for the daily show and the late show with David Letterman warning before we get back into this segment, and I talk about sexual assault and miscarriage and a few other sensitive things and things are a little graphic. If you're sensitive to that kind of thing we just wanted to give you a heads up. Anyway, back to my conversation with Jennifer. C'mon. Let's play a clip from my guest, Jennifer Friedman and her show software. We talked a little bit about the cannibal cop Gill valley who who sent many emails and message board postings about eating his wife and her friends. It's so funny. It's sad. But no one got hurt. So it's funny. He also wrote a book about it. And he says that everything was just him indulging in very specific and complicated, fantasies. And this is my guest China Friedman interviewing him about it. I'm not this lunatic. I'm not this homicidal maniac. You know, I'm actually a very normal. Nice sky very go with. Oh, wouldn't say boring, but just just just a humble humble kind of just random. Sure, basic guy. Yes. Your plotting to eat women on a website for fun. Your wife had suspicions. She puts fire on the computer caught you calls the FBI they arrest. You you go to jail. What advice would you give someone who was busted by their wife for plotting to eat her and her friends on a dark finish website. I don't know how many people have actually been in that situation that was fun that was one of the funniest because. I don't know just normalizing it in a way that made it boring was so funny to me, and he didn't like to be called boring. That was what was so funny. I mean that port will I don't think that poor guy. But the media had such made such a meal out of his where at the same time his wife left him. Like I joke with my boyfriend that if like I found out that he was plotting to eat me. I'd be like, Josh, I know him, and I know I know what he's capable of. And I'm pretty sure he wouldn't eat me. But like, if if you think your partner is going to eat, you there's like something to that that feels real and somewhere else I read that we didn't including the interview he would like ask her what her running routes were and stuff like it was just very weird. But it also was really fun to show a side of someone at the media hasn't which is that he was like this like university of Maryland guy kinda normal decided to just like. Cop. And I think our culture so obsessed with serial killers. And just even though it feels boring at this point. They're not masterminds. They're just kinda like basic dudes. And I think if we if we stopped being obsessed and glamorizing men who kill women, maybe they would do it less. So. I think the funniest thing in that clip. Those laugh is you transitioning from the description of what a normal guy he is to the specifics of his incredibly, not normal behavior. But the thing that I enjoyed the most and that is you just maintaining his tone and stretching out as long as you possibly could the interchange of you, and he exchanging descriptors of how boring. Yeah. We were really careful when we produce that with the women because the second part is dating game. And I at the last minute, we're like what if we got a woman on the on the game who would actually date him as opposed to have it just be like a joke about him being creepy. Like why not let's go on a fetish website? This is just a window into production and find a woman who is like into blood play or whatever and we did. And so that dating game was completely unscripted. He had no idea that was going to happen beforehand. The way that we pulled it off. And it was a whole team of really smart people. I was working with to this day. I'm like amazed by what we were able to capture. The only thing we scripted where you know questions for everybody. There were questions we had him ask the women that I couldn't I break very rarely breaking his laughing. And there was this one moment when he was asking the women like how fast do you run that? If you like, listen, really carefully. I'm I'm uncontrollably. Quietly giggling 'cause it was the most uncomfortable. Serious thing I've ever been part of. It's eye. Jesse thorn, I'm talking with the writer comic and host Jennifer Friedman, her latest special, soft focus is streaming now on adult swim. You pretty much open your show with. Segment about rape. Yeah. Why did you decide? Because it happens all the time. I mean, I was in college, and I could count on my fingers and toes the amount of women. I knew that pass out at a frat party and woke up with a inside them like it was so bad when I was in college. And I remember the whole controversy with the Rolling Stone article on on UVA, and how that was handled and botched it was so heartbreaking because I. It's such a real thing that I know not just from secondhand experience. How how much of a an epidemic that is that I felt like at that moment. We lost this opportunity to really talk about it. And it's not, you know, there are serial offenders who just get away with it on college campuses, the most that is the most people who commit date rape. But it's also people who just haven't ever thought about consent and don't think of it as as rape. And and I think just getting people to think about consent and using comedy to do that. It's not gonna stop everybody. But to a guy who takes the girl home who's really really wasted or girl who takes advantage of a guy who's really really wasted. Maybe if they're thinking about what affirmative consent means they'll act differently. I think when I do jokes, and I'm not a stand up comic. But I perform comedy in front of audiences. I have found myself over the last ten years in have been grateful to have done. Reevaluating the way that I think about sexual assault in humor rape jokes jokes. And one of the reasons I think is that as dude it took people kind of looking me in the eye and explaining to me that when I'm sitting in a room with two hundred people in and some proportion like one or two and five have been of the women in that room have been sexually assaulted that. It no matter who is the target of my joke. No matter what the structure of my joke is and all the joke is about this. It's not about this or whatever. Like, I'm joking about probably one of the biggest traumas in the lives of twenty percent of the people sitting in that room. And that was something that I had to really think about a lot and. I imagine that. It's also something that you have thought about a lot before you waited into doing any kind of humor about that. So they're actually like two issues here. One is is talking about a subject, even if you're talking about it from the right side of it with humanity and having that trigger men and women who have been victims of harassment or assault. I am not someone who says that you should shy away from talking about whatever because you might trigger somebody in the audience. I want to believe that women are not porcelain dolls. And that people who go to comedy shows, they have to be responsible for how they're going to react to a subject matter that a comedian talks about for example, I have jokes. One particular joke about miscarriage and part of the reason I'm talking about is because Republicans are legislating it. We're not talking about it is so common, and so many women experience it, but because we don't talk about it. It increases this kind of isolation stigma when it happens to you. So I think we really need to be talking about these very real things that men like Lindsey Graham have never seen a vagina. Don't get to legislate them. He might have seen one at birth. I imagine his eyes were closed whatever that's issue number one. Number two, though is the issue of like a man talking about rape jokes. And I think any man can talk about rape jokes or anything. You just run the risk. If you're on the wrong side of it of sounding like a rapist. But I won't tell you. If you have a rape joke that makes fun of rapists don't shy away from that. Because we need people talking about these things. And if somebody says, hey, you can't talk about rape that's messed up because men get raped too. And these are real things. And again, I think. We should be talking about everything and talking about it with honesty, and kindness and humanity and not being afraid when people who maybe aren't listening to you misinterpret. What you're saying just be able to kind of nothing is less funny than explaining a joke. But if people need you to explain a joke to to not just I mean, people are going to jump on. You know, matter what. But I think you should shy away from rape jokes. If you're telling them from a asi- that is anti rape. It's walls. I Jesse thorn. My guest is Jennifer Friedman, host of the adult swim show, soft focus, I feel like in comedy. There are unique vulnerabilities for women. That's not to say that vulnerability in general is unique to comedy. But there are unique vulnerabilities. You know, everyone is an independent contractor. There's no HR. There's no HR. There are many more men than women. Actually, there are many more men that you see than women. But when they start out there a lot of women in the beginning rungs of comedy, and for many reasons, they don't continue or they try to continue and they don't get the same opportunities. But it is a myth that. There are like like if you see a show at a club, and it has nine men and one woman that is not in any way, Representative of the amount of women trying to at least working comedy, I tweeted at I had an acquaintance who I followed on Twitter who was regular at one of the big comedy clubs here in Los Angeles and would retreat lineups when he was on them and the book, great comics, you know, these are this is Los Angeles where you move to work store. Oh, yeah. And I would look at the lineups. And I'd be like this is this is a fourteen person lineup with one woman. Is the comedy store, and it's hard for us to call this stuff out because we want to get booked there. But yeah. Clubs many clubs, especially in New York and L A do not show lineups that reflect the gender composition of of people working in the industry. I tweeted I I tweeted at them. I might have retweeted might have quote, tweeted them. But I tweeted at them like that's fourteen comics and two women like you can do better than that. And I am not joking. They tweeted at me a picture of a flyer for ladies night. It's like separate but equal. Yeah. Here think that's a suitable response. Yeah. In public. I just I couldn't I couldn't believe it was real. This was not in two thousand and two this past year. The New York comedy festival I had a flier out that was like maybe all men and one woman on the festival like in one of the orig- like at the initial kind of pushes PR pushes for the festival. And. Yeah, I mean, you want a joke like, oh, New York men's comedy festival looks great. But again like we are freelance people, and we are trying to just get booked. So it's hard to be outspoken about this stuff. Well, I I really appreciate your work. I'm I'm grateful for what you've done. I'm trying. I'm trying be kind to everyone. You guys. Jennifer. Thank you for coming on. It was really nice to get to.

"Thank you of your daughter or better yet. A person. Jenner friedman. Welcome to bullseye. I it's nice to have you on the show. Hi nice to be here. It's weird listening to your stand up in a soundproof room with one other person. You were a field producer on the daily show for a few years. Can you tell me what that job involves? Well, we were writing and directing segments for the show so any any segment with a correspondent in the field had a field producer. Like news shows which kind of the field producer is a person who's with the correspondent in the field. But I think with our show because it was. Fake news or not fake news. But just not pure news at had kind of at a allies elements that role was more of like a writer director. Yeah. So I I had a I had a buddy who was a field correspondent for the daily show, Al Madrigal. And I went and visited him at the daily show office one time, and it was talking to him about his job and allies, very talented comedy writer, and as well as their talented comedy performer. He's like, you know when I do field pieces. It's really it's really the producers project. I am. I am a vehicle for that writer-producer. That's a person who works on this for weeks or a month. I am a person who flies to Florida for two days. Yeah. I'm glad you said that that's the hardest job in comedy that that job because you're basically a filmmaker, but your actors are unwilling participants except for the correspondent everyone else in the segment are not necessarily wanting to be portrayed the way that you are going to portray them again. We we don't take people out of context though, there is an element of journalistic integrity, at least when I was doing the field pieces, and you just shoot a bunch of stuff. And then you put a piece together. I mean, it was really really hard. But it was like a crash course in film school for me. What do you feel like the goal of those pieces wise? I mean, I think. I always like to sugar co like if I want people to understand nuances of some issue. I'll give you an example, one of the pieces we did was the fast food worker strikes where nothing about that is funny. But I really personally believe that people should have living wages. So it was a story. I wanted to cover and if you can use comedy to to show that type of a story in a new light, you can hook people into it. That particular piece. I did Samantha was a correspondent it's hard to kind of joke or talk about free market economics, and how it has failed. And so and also to talk to really vulnerable people who are fighting for living wages, so for that particular piece, we actually found a a person who has I think it was like a hedge fund that was like a seventy million dollar company, and he came on the show talk to us about why Mark how markets determine wages, and how living wages would mess up all sorts of things, and you're probably going to edit or censor it on what I'm about to say. But. One of the questions. We asked him. Do you believe that markets determine wages, and he said, yes, supply and demand markets dictate wages? So then the second question Sam asks described to me the type of person worth two dollars an hour. And he said verbatim. I don't know the PC word for retarded and right away. That was two minutes into him sitting down. I was like we have a segment because what this is showing is that the people who believe this have very little empathy for people working, and that's actually in my mind. The most distilled version of that argument that if you were talking about a news show, you couldn't really say that because it's like two editorialized. But if we can show it coming out of the mouth of somebody who who is like a free market unfettered capitalist. Then it proves a point in a way that it's like it's using humor. But humor is not necessarily the right word in that situation. But it's like getting to the core of that argument. I think that having watched soft focus your two specials for adult swim. There is a distinct similarity in structure, you're doing a similar thing to a daily show field piece. Generally speaking, the tone is different. And I wonder if if first of all if you agree with that. And second of all if you if you could kind of describe what you wanted to be different about what you were doing on dealt swim. Well, I mean, that's my show. I don't have Dawson's been really really cool about not really having a heavy hand in the aditorial of it. And I think because it's more under the radar. I can take at the moment more risks than the daily show would take also, you know, I'm thankful that people enough. People have seen daily show that the format is like familiar enough that people trust what we're doing without. Being hypercritical or anything if that makes sense like it's a recognizable format, but then it like goes off the rails. And we are in different times like John the daily show ended pre Trump and in that time period, we had this kind of shared reality that even if people disagreed he felt like you were on the same ground. Whereas now everything so insane. It's just it's just a different time without getting into specifics. And it feels like if you watch the news, and you see what's going on you feel insane. So I think that the show is partly a response to that. It's it's a little bit. For lack of a better word and a little bit pushing the envelope more because I feel like right now, we kind of have to. We'll finish up my conversation with Jennifer Friedman after a quick break when we come back. We'll talk about why women still have a hard time breaking into the world of stand up comedy. It's bullseye for maximum, fun dot org and NPR. Hi,.
