Caleb Barlow Discusses Healthcare Industry Ransomware Attacks and Measures to Prevent Cybercrimes
"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host David Intra Cosso. This podcast discussed cybercrime or ransomware attacks against hospitals and other healthcare providers with Collab- Barlow CEO Synergistic Tech this barlow welcome to the program. Hey pleasure to be here. David. Mr Biles vile is, of course, posted on the podcast website. On background computer or cybercrimes against healthcare providers, more of a hospitals, disabled computer networks holding them for ransom. Frequently for Bitcoin fee, the tax have been prevalent since at least two, thousand and ten. This past month however, universal health services with over four hundred locations. Over in the US suffered a cyber attack disabling it's company wide computer network causing some it's hospitals to revert to pen and paper recordkeeping also last month the first known death. Resulted from a ransomware attack in Germany when a patient did not survive transferred to another hospital. Though a twenty nineteen hhs report found between twenty, twelve and sixteen. Hospital deaths increased after ransomware attacks. Earlier this month covid nineteen VACs. A covid nineteen vaccine trial was delayed by more attack or at least one. Likely. The most costly ransomware attack was to the UK's national health service in seventeen that amounted to an estimated one, hundred, twenty, million in it costs and lost productivity. ransomware attacks are on the increase especially amongst small hospitals, particularly vulnerable to phishing attacks, lasting upwards of tumor weeks because of their lean or inadequate security support. As Josephine Wolf noted in October Seventeen New York Times editorial quote Unquote cybersecurity shortcomings in the healthcare sector needs to be addressed now. More than ever when medical care is increasingly being offered via remote online formats. In twenty twenty states introduced more than two hundred and eighty cybersecurity related bills enacting several related to task forces or commissions training. Cybersecurity insurance in criminal. Penalties. The US Senate and House passed seven cybersecurity bills whoever not specifically addressed the healthcare industry and none became law. With me again and discuss healthcare cybersecurity is synergise texts, CEO. COLLAB- Barlow so club with that. As background LET'S START WITH A. Primer Info. I've read these ransomware products. in part are. Titled or named Wannacry Laki Win Plock encrypt locker. Are some these known ransomware product. So my question is, how do these encrypt clinical data and to what effect? So. So basically, what happening if you look at ransomware incident is a you know a narrow will gets access to a network and that could be as simple as grabbing somebody's credentials. You know maybe you were on a retail site, use the same credentials you used at work that retail site was compromised and There are many locations on the dark web that will. Sell compromised credentials or could have been through a phishing attack once the bad guy is into the network then there's two primary things that they're looking to do first is to move laterally. They WANNA get as much access across the networks they can, and there are a variety of tools that they'll deploy. They will actually help them harvest additional credentials once they've got a beachhead. On, the network in addition to harvesting new credentials and kind of moving lateral or what we call lateral movement. The other thing that are going to do is to try to elevate their privilege. So going from maybe an administrator or you know a nurse and triage and maybe getting access to their credentials, they're going to try to work their way up to a network. Administrator or someone that controls access to the whole domain once they've been able to get in and move their tentacles around the organization, then they're going to deploy their payroll, which is one of several of the tools that you mentioned will allow them to then lock things up effectively what these tools, our cryptographic tools, and they basically take the entire hard drive at the device. Scramble it and lock it up with a cryptographic key. What we've seen of late is the bad guys oftentimes insert a new step just before scrambling data, locking it all up in that the exfiltrated lot of it, and they're using that to increase their chances of getting paid by potentially threatening to. The organization by releasing that data if they don't pay ransom. Okay. Thank you so. I in my reading. It's uncertain Saul. Asked you this question? What's your understanding? How frequently? Is this occurring in the healthcare sector? Oh, it's every day I mean literally every single day because you got to remember what you read about in the news is only a very small fraction of what's actually going on even though technically speaking ransomware incident is as far as I'm concerned reportable incident because you gotta remember if the bad guy had enough access to walk up your data, they had the same level of access needed to read the data and they actually in many cases had the same level access needed to change the data. So the problem is you've actually lost control of that system when you've had a ransomware incident. I. So that was that was a question I did have. Other than. Possibly, making this data public and you know healthcare data's is is is confidential proprietary, of course. What do they typically do this data other than hold it hostage? Well remember, this is a organized crime. It is a volume organization you're dealing with a human on the other end and that human is organized right. You're not the only target, their targeting dozens of organizations at the same time in many cases are teams of thirty individuals and you know there's a breakdown on that team there's a project manager of a boss. There's people that are responsible for getting access. There's people that are responsible for moving laterally people responsible for elevating credentials and people are responsible for negotiating. Once walked up system

A Love Letter to Short Men
"DOT COM and at her website Carlin Betcha. Dot Com and here is a love letter to short men. Your height is not an issue unless you make it one. It's one of the most common openers I see on dating apps a man's height. It's usually the first thing men list and sometimes height is the only thing listed. Yep just height nothing else as if those two numbers measured in feet and inches contain multitudes. I understand why it happens. We are a society obsessed with looks we treat beauty and both genders as a currency attractive people make more money are viewed as more agreeable and somehow more valuable. This is part of the halo effect, a psychology term where we assign one single trait beauty to other characteristics kindness. Personally I have never seen a woman who cares about height in fact, I find short men hot, not all of them but many. Let. Me Tell you a not hot short man's story. I recently wanted to date with a five foot five inch guy within fifteen minutes of our meeting. He ass is my height a problem. It was not until he mentioned it. I had not even looked at the height he listed on his profile. I then spent the next twenty minutes assuaging his fragile ego and explaining why many women like short men it was exhausting at one point I think he read the weariness in my slumped shoulders and tried to self correct. I'm only asking because you're right about love and sex. Sure if you went on a date with a dermatologist, would you ask her to examine the fungus between your toes? I didn't say that, but I wanted to my sarcasm is a feral beast. Then, there are the many many short guys who lie about their height. You know who you are. I once went on a date with a guy claiming to be five foot eight inches. He was five foot four inches. That's a four inch lie. If we're keeping track I wore three inch heels for that date that put me at five feet eight inches. Greeted him with a hug. This was pre pandemic days his head landed on my chest. Awkward. For most women height is not a deal breaker but lying is So. Here it is short men the painful truth your height is not the Lady Boehner killer. You think it is it your lack of confidence that makes women's ovaries shrivel up and never want to go on another date again, I have dated a lot of sexy short men and they all had one thing in common nothing to prove when Tom Cruise five foot seven inches was sexiest man alive multiple times. Did anyone add a footnote sexy for a short Guy Hell? No. When Bruno Mars five, foot five inches shakes what his momma gave him are women getting out there measuring. Sticks Adriano. then. There's Napoleon. Napoleon. Never had complex about his height nor was he even really that short you can feel his confidence oozing out of the impatient love letters. He wrote to Josephine one read a kiss on your heart and one much lower down much lower. Nowhere in that letter, will you find a postscript saying unless my height makes you not in the mood? Yet Napoleon somehow got his name attached to the height inferiority complex known as the Napoleon. Complex. The Napoleon Complex states that short men tend to be more aggressive lie more and try to compensate for their short stature by being exceptionally cruel. But researchers found the opposite to be true. One study from Nyu phone short men are thirty two percent less likely to divorce than tolman. The study also found women married to short men reported greater happiness and short men did more housework than tolman. Yes. There is a correlation between happiness and a freshly floor. Clearly short men are doing something, right? I pulled over twenty of my most dateable girlfriends for this article I asked the same question. Are you attracted to short men most had similar answer? It depends on the guy that's a nice way of saying that is not the package. It's the meat inside. So

Who Is Activist, Ella Baker
"From Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny. Kaplan and this is encyclopedia will Manica. Very. Excited to present our. September. This month we're talking about activists. Women who stood up and fought against injustice and for a better world today, we're talking about a woman who doesn't often receive the recognition she deserves for her behind the scenes activism. As a prolific activist, she had a hand in society changing work major civil rights leaders turned to her for her organizational skills. Let's talk about Ella Josephine Baker. Sisters in the struggle for human dignity and freedom. I am here to represent. The struggle that has gone on for three hundred years. Ella Baker was born on December thirteenth nineteen o three in Norfolk Virginia. She grew up in North Carolina on the very same land where her grandparents were enslaved a few decades earlier. Ella's mother was part of the Local Missionary Association. She helped feed their hungry neighbors and encouraged women to be a force for positive change this activism and kindness stuck with Allah. Ellis studied at Shaw University in Raleigh North Carolina and graduated as Class Valedictorian nineteen twenty seven shortly after she moved to New York City in Nineteen thirty ELA joined several women's organizations and served as national director of the Young Negroes Cooperative League that organization focused on supporting the economic development of the black community in nineteen forty Ella started working as a field secretary for the N. Double A. C., p. she moved up to work as director of branches after just three years. She later also served as the president of the New York. City branch. Then in Nineteen fifty-six, Ella Co created the organization in French. Which bought the oppressive Jim Crow laws in the south. The following year a move to Atlanta to help with Martin Luther King Junior's Organization the southern Christian Leadership Conference. At that time, the SC L. C. was a brand new venture. It was created after successes like the Montgomery bus boycott black leaders including Martin Luther. King Junior created the organization to assemble more boycotts and. Throughout the south. But for the venture to be successful, it would take a masterful organizer while Martin Luther King Junior took the reins as the SEC's public figurehead Ella worked behind the scenes setting the organization's agenda and framing the issues. She organized the crusade for citizenship a campaign to support voting rights. For African Americans, she also helped Rodney Atlanta s ELC headquarters and even served as a temporary director for several months after the resignation of the previous office holder, Ellis desire to focus on the issues and to have influence over the. Direction often clashed with the group's main. Right, as ellos considering resigning in nineteen sixty radical act of civil disobedience inspired her to take a new direction on February first black college students in Greensboro. North Carolina where I'm from refused to leave a lunch counter. Worth's where they'd been denied service for Joseph McNeil Franklin McCain and their to college dorm mates that time was February first one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty. The day they walked into a Greensboro. Woolworth's and sat down at the segregated lunch counter. Ella wrote a letter that encourage students across the south to join forces and take similar acts of protest. She also organized a meeting at Shaw University for the students who spearheaded the citizens from those meetings, the student nonviolent coordinating committee or Snick was created. snick would have a profound impact on the civil rights movement.

How not to lose your we never curse on this podcast so L. it out. Castro. s-h-i-t with your kids. So we'll keep we'll keep this family friendly by the way. Did you all new real-life curse a lot, but we'll never do it on this podcast. Okay. So that surprise people and then anyway I am really digressing it is such a good book and it is actually based on a lot of meditation. Techniques including very powerful technique like noticing while you're doing something kind of noticing your own reaction, noticing your own feelings, noticing what's going on around you and it's fairly simplistic premise but I actually found it incredibly powerful. So I am not saying that I'm someone who loses it with my kids all the time. I. Feel like I'd probably do an average amount but I still feel like her book really helped me to. Calm down in those situations where I might have chosen to yell or give out kind of a harsh ultimatum or something like that. So. Yeah, good recommendation than which probably all check that out. There's a lot of. Whatever the word is with our kids these days. Yeah. You had mentioned though Josh giving you a night right like. That was amazing I had to ask for it. You know my husband is wonderful but we have kids and it's not always the easiest to put all three of them to bed. So neither of US typically wants to volunteer, but one night I just said. I cannot do this I do not want to do. Can you please just do it I want to go in there I want to go in our bedroom like locked the door and finish binge eating big summer, which was great by the way and I did and it was great. I will admit you've cried for me and I had to put her to bed but it was it was actually Up until that point and Exactly. It was. It was actually really nice and I will do it again I don't know that I need like a specific like night every week I know some people do that but I do think that asking for it when I need it. Fine with it, and then he asked it actually over the weekend he had a headache just like I can't and I was like you know what I feel like really good because you did this for me and I'm happy to do this for you, and so I think we may do that a little bit more. Yeah. That's great. Now, I took a sort of evening not not so much indict off. Having a really rough day than I You know we still had our sitter in after dinner for a little bit. Michael was with Ruth at her softball game and I said, I, really need to go for a run I hadn't got one in and I was feeling rather clustered about a lot of stuff and it was still ninety degrees but I went on a trail run and it felt much better in the shade at than it would have out on the. Street and it was just what I needed. I came back and so much of a better mood than if I had spent that time trying to answer random emails which I was going to do during an email triage time as we discussed in the last episode, just recognizing that you're kind of going off the rails and having some sort of treat or coping mechanism that you have to get yourself back to a normal place instead of wallowing in it, which is you know sometimes. Satisfying and its own twisted way. But probably, not the healthiest thing long-term if I'm GonNa Wallow in something that I, it's probably best for me to journal about it or like right out some words about it or even like draw a diagram or something because then I kind of get to enjoy the actual wallowing but then I feel like the active using my hands to do something prevents me from multitasking and also just kind of. Better know feels a little bit therapeutic. So that can be a way to acknowledge your crappy feelings, but then also relieved them at the same

Yeah, absolutely so I actually I help people overcome adversity to enjoy, and this all stems from that thirteen year for journey, but I had trying to create my dream family, and that encompassed many years of failed idea miscarriages eventually leading to international adoption, and then going back, try via, and then finally using a surrogate to help us out, and in the end after that tumultuous. Tumultuous Ride. We have our family of five kids Manso. Because I went through all of that, it became my passion to help. Others navigate their own obstacles in life, using all the lessons that I learned and coupling it with meditation training so that no everyone can try to purchase rice, responding in a more mindful and positive way man I think mindfulness is really at the root of so much of our health whether the physical emotional mental learning that mindfulness key. It's not something that we are necessarily taught in childhood taught in schools. It often is something that unless you yourself as an adult. Adult go and seek out that training of mindfulness. It's no wonder that it seems like our society oftentimes is very very scattered, brain and unhealthy and unhappy. We have so much mental unrest in our society and I'm a big believer that a lot of that comes down to just people not knowing how to be mindful. Would you agree absolutely? Yes, we were so caught up in the day to day an looking in the future, also looking in the past, and never really appreciating the present moment for how beautiful it is, because our minds are scoring so quickly. Get so much stuff and. Inundated with all the media that we now have our fingertips that it is so easy us to get caught up in that whirlwind of chaos, and not really be mindful of ourselves and our situations, and that's why I love using essential oils as we. We're going to talk about as another way to really like tap into that moment, because it just brings you back to what you associate with certain sense, which is why I love to incorporate in.

The, raid is jumping baker daughter of lowest washerwoman. Limb abandon the. Pirates of night. In a performance for the follies Berge that made her an instant star, Josephine famously danced, wearing a short skirt, made a fake bananas and strings of Pearls, the performance iconic it served as a revolutionary means of reappropriated racist stereotypes thrust upon Black People Uh. Josephine was an international sensation. It was particularly remarkable feat for a black woman at that time, as she was performing for largely white audiences in an era of widespread prejudice, her performances, including the famous one with the bananas skirt, not only entertained, but serve to disrupt widely accepted racist nerves and tropes. She also took her talents off stage, and on screen and several successful movies, and she sold products to the adoring fans who wanted to emulate the way she looked including skin, darkening lotion and hair palm eight. Josephine was extremely successful, allowing her to live in a mansion in south western France. She also adopted twelve children from around the world, and she had a pet cheetah named Chiquita.

They come united in one cause to urge Congress to pass a civil rights bill to end forever the blight of racial inequity. She was the only woman officially on the speaking agenda at the famous march on Washington for jobs and freedom. She said you know friends that I do not lie to you when I tell you I've walked into the palaces of kings and Queens, and then to the Houses of presidents, and much more not walk into a hotel in America and get a cup of coffee and that made me mad. Josephine continued her work on stage as an activist for the rest of her life. She died on April Twelfth Nineteen, seventy five.

But no matter how popular Josephine was on stage. She struggled with America's racism offstage. Josephine had known of race riots in Saint Louis. Since she was a child, white mobs had burned down the homes of black families, and some of her neighbors had been killed because of their skin color. Even a New York Josephine wasn't allowed in white hotels and couldn't get served in many restaurants instead. She was often met with signs that read. Whites only. So in Nineteen, twenty, five at only age, Nineteen Josephine took another leap a rich, American producer offered her role in an all black revue in Paris. Josephine said yes, and boarded, a steamship headed for France. As ship sailed away Josephine leaned against the railing, the ocean breeze, whispering against her cheeks. As she watched the Statue of Liberty Fade away behind them. She felt something else coming into view. Real Freedom. When Josephine first arrived in Paris. She was less impressed by the theater than she was at being able to go into any cafe store or gallery she wanted to. There were no whites only signs. In addition, there were fewer taboos, romance and Josephine with aren't have love affairs with people of all different races, religions and genders. But her truest love was always Paris. Josephine's debut show. The Revenue Negra opened to a sold out crowd of writers painters. Stars diplomats and even royalty. When the curtain Rose Josephine did her usual, comedic routine, and the audience laughed at all the right places. Later though to their surprise, Josephine was carried onto the stage on the back of a male dancer. When he stopped. She cartwheel down from his back, and the crowd gasped. Josephine was in a costume made. A pink feathers she began to dance in a frenzy, moving her arm, stopping her feet, and throwing her body around the stage like she was in a trance.

After more than ten years of successful, performing in Europe and around the world. Returned to New York City. But she was disappointed to find that discrimination against black people had only gotten worse. At her hotel, Josephine was informed she must never enter through the lobby again and said she was asked to use a service entrance at the back of the hotel because the lobby was for whites only. And when Josephine performed in the song and Dance Revue Ziegfeld follies. The, audience was shocked to see her dancing with four white men. Because of that critics wrote many hateful things about Joseph performance in the newspapers. Even, more difficult news followed her disappointing return to the United States. She soon learned that the PTO had been diagnosed with cancer. And passed away while she was in New York. Heartbroken Josephine quit the show in return to Paris. There she was grateful to be greeted by her cheering fans bouquets of flowers, and even an accordion player. As, she addressed her fans Josephine broke into one of her most famous songs. Move Ooh a song about her. Two loves France and her home country. To loves have I. And they tear me apart to loves have I. Both are in my heart. One is a flower and the other aflame. To loves have I. Not the same. Just a pains left for her adopted country, only grew, and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty seven. She became a French citizen. But, while Josephine's careers soared, war loomed on the horizon. In May nineteen forty, the German army invaded France and by. June Paris spell to the Nazis. Josephine despised the Nazis beliefs in white superiority and their hatred toward Jewish people, people of color and anyone else who is different. Without hesitation, take another leap. She. To become a spy for France. France is the country that adopted me without reservation and I am willing to give my life for her. She told the man who recruited her. The leader of the French Resistance thought no one would suspect the famous Josephine. Baker was a spy. Still it was dangerous work. If, she got caught. She could be killed or sent to concentration camp. Her Country House became a hideout resistance agents who often traveled with her as band members. In Lisbon Marseille and Algiers, she went to embassy events and flirted with friends and foes. All the while secretly eavesdropping on Nazi officials.

"Yorker film critic Richard Brody for decades. He rarely leads me wrong and I can't remember the last time that Richard was as excited about a filmmaker as he is about the Director Josephine Decker. In two thousand fourteen, he wrote a piece about decker with the headline. A star is born. And her film Madeleine's. Madeline was Richard's pick with you heard of it or not for the best movie of two thousand eighteen. Josephine deckers new film is called Shirley and it starts Elisabeth Moss as the writer Shirley Jackson. I have a title hangs a man. It's about that girl. The missing one. Girl. What do you think? Well you haven't said much. It's just an idea. I Try Sapir in college. Girl sounds trite in a bit trashy but to. Give it a go. I'll read of course for you. Wait too far. Going to take time, we'll give it to me and a couple of days. It's enough. Oh No. Dear, that's. You're not. You're just not up to it. Wrong. That was Elisabeth Moss Shirley. Jackson and Richard Brody joins me now. Richard. What is it about Josephine deckers work that you love so much. Wealth Very Simply Josephine Decker is one of the very few filmmakers who seem to be reinventing the very stuff of movies image, sound performance with each film, and she's coming out of a fusion of traditions, which is one of the things that makes her work, so interesting I knew her as an actress. She had appeared in some films by Joe Swartberg that I was familiar with so her direct filmmaking experience comes from what I would call number core film in other words films that were made on a very low budget. The script improvised, but Her way of making images is a say. Mr It has something to do with the films of. John Cassowaries something to do with that long God. Filmmaking and That fusion of traditions along with her own personal inspirations makes for really original form of work in what surely about the new film? Surely as A sort of bio-pic about Shirley Jackson the author of the lottery, published in the New Yorker of course in nineteen, forty, eight, the we dig very deep into Shirley Jackson's creative process, and it does so experience with a hectic image, repertory, fantasy, sequences, nightmare, sound design, and above all the performance by Elizabeth Moss that is itself spontaneous and ferocious. So I hadn't heard of decker until you told me about her until you wrote a better. How did you first get to know her work? Well, actually I was just talking with her about that the other day. I remember vividly when we met. We met at the Maryland Film Festival rate in those days the. Sort of the gathering area where the coffee and snacks were was a parking lot, but I did recognize you I've seen you in in in Joe's films. I asked You I'm. Are you in a film festival this year? and Said No, but I have a film directed a film that's in the in the festival. It was a short film and I I asked You. If you would send me not a link of course I didn't exist, but send me a copy and you did. Send me a DVD. I pumped it into my dvd player, and from the very first images. My eyes got extremely wide. This film is called me the terrible. which is a wonderful comedic and yet really kind of poignant. Fantasy about a child's adventure life it is, and it was. My Gosh. It's funny because. I really remember your response to that and was really floored by ungrateful that you connected to it so much and I said to myself. You know I'm impatient for anything you do next, but. Essentially, you're you're the two main themes in your career until now and you're working till now are the relationships of women and the artistic and creative drives of women, women artists in their attempt to create in the face of private and public obstacles. That's very true and it's interesting. The I mean it was funny almost to be blindsided by how much didn't even realize the amount of crossover? There was between Madeleine's madeline and Shirley. marlins violent as a feature I made before I made Shirley and. Sarajevans are writer on Shirley saw Mandolin. It s looking at each other and being like there is a lot in common between these two movies there's. An older established artists. Kind of? Maybe the right word might be praying on. The innocence and connection she has with a younger artist, a younger younger woman right Madeleine's muddling is the story of a teenage acting prodigy who's a member of a professional theater company where she's in effect, exploited by the director. You know I I love that movie. One of the things I love about it is the sense that you don't deliver a script to the actors in merely photograph them performing it, but rather that it's the result of a real time ongoing creative process in which you yourself participating. Yes, I think I had my first one was improvised. Much fully improvised. That was filed in lovely was scripted. There's a tiny bit of Improv, but not not much and I kind of missed improvising, but when I. In. The improv movie I had missed the kind of like clearer. Turning points that a script allows you so my next door I, had set out to build through scripting, know from Improv, and and then I cast iron, credible, acting troupes, and spent the next six months working with them, improvising towards these and around these themes that I wanted to be at the heart of Madeleine's model, in which were mental illness and parent, child, relationships and and also how art. low-budget art tries to address these large things in the question of how yeah how how does this? How much impact do you have, so? I think Madeleine's madeline is one of those movies that really shouldn't exist. It's it's it's an extremely. The beginning of the film is about an actress dressed up as a sea turtle. You know it's not like a action films, so part of the reason is it exists. Is that I felt encouraged to keep going to closer and closer to the things that was really interested in and excited by. The New Yorkers Richard Brody with Director Josephine Decker.

She didn't exist in the latter half of the twentieth. The Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics created a wife for uncle. Sam The on creatively named Aunt Sammy. The character was voiced by different women at each individual radio station that way the listener would hear an accent similar to their own and feel more connected to aunt Sammy. Three women worked behind the scenes at the USDA to prepare the script each week that all the regional aunt. Sammy's would use fanny Walker. Contested Recipes Josephine. Harmful wrote the chatty portions of the show and Ruth Fan demine coordinated all of the Menus and recipes. The other woman who guided homemakers through was the very real first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt. When Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House in Nineteen thirty three? A record number of people were hungry but being president is not without its perks and the first family eight well even extravagantly while people stood inbred lines. Eleanor Roosevelt. Who didn't know how to cook realized that the way she and the president ate in the White House had the potential to influence and even help the nation through the depression. She hired an acquaintance. Henrietta Nesbitt whose husband was out of work to be the new White House housekeeper housekeeper at that time more like how we use the term homemaker today and not as we use a euphemism for cleaning lady. Nesbitt and Roosevelt retooled the entire kitchen installing modern appliances and coaxing the skeptical White House staff to use them. This was the first kitchen in America and it wasn't even sanitary recalled. Nesbitt in her memoir. Meanwhile Eleanor turn to home economists for menus that would balance nutrition and economy the healthiest recipes in the world wouldn't help people if they couldn't afford the ingredients what's more she resolved to serve these humble dishes in the White House. Her efforts were covered by national newspapers and followed closely by housewives. There was a catch. These nutritious economic meals were awful. The first kitchen was turning out some of the most unpalatable meals in modern memory. The president himself was usually the test subject for these new dishes and he obligingly choked them down. Things like deviled eggs with tomato sauce and prune pudding in place of lavish dishes. The White House table was the stage for things like Spaghetti with boiled carrots. Cold jellied billion and bread and butter sandwiches served so much mutton that being grown sheep which is cheaper than lamb. Because it's much tougher that it became a joke throughout Washington. The first lady experimented with foods like milk corno a mix of dried milk powder and cornmeal developed by Cornell University milk. Porno could be eaten as a gruel like dish or worked into recipes. I was not brave enough to research. What those recipes might be. The bland meals became so notorious that visitors to the White House would eat before they went nutrition. Not Taste was paramount in the time of soup. Kitchens and bread lines and eleanor. Roosevelt was trying to use her table as a way of encouraging and inspiring other Americans to get through this uniquely challenging historical moment. It was just as well they got used to eating a limited range of food because FDR's presidency also included World War Two and the Roosevelt's eight rationed food just like everyone else Roosevelt's White House eight modestly in an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering. Jane's Eagle men. The CO author of a square meal told The New York Times. Here's a sampling of menu items. The first family and the public general might have enjoyed in massive bunny ears spaghetti with carrots and white sauce. The sauce was basically just milk. Meatless loaf made with peace oatmeal peanuts. Rice and or cottage cheese. Whatever you could get your hands on Mulligan's stew any animal. You could kill or find dead with whatever veggies you could manage or anything. That would keep hungry. They for a few hours without killing you like sawdust. It was reportedly created by the massive homeless population during the depression. Where people in homeless or migrant worker camps would pool their resources so that everyone could eat none of my sources mentioned where the name Mulligan might have come from. We do know the name origin of another STU. Hoover Stu Herbert Hoover had been elected just in time for the crash. But Unlike the Roosevelt's he continued to live the good life in the White House. Shantytowns BECAME HOOVER. Villes and the soup from soup. Kitchens became hoover stu the weirdest one of all and this report is opinion was peanut butter in baked. Onions was a whole onion hollowed out stuffed with peanut butter and baked. Just because we have two things on hand doesn't mean we should eat them at the same time as Eagle men succinctly put it. Peanut butter has nothing to say to a baked onion. Some recipes sound like they shouldn't work but surprisingly do like mock Apple Pie. Apples weren't readily available. But Americans weren't willing to give up their conic Apple Pie. The apples in mock apple pie were actually Ritz crackers and it worked. If you're not already familiar with Youtuber Emmy made in Japan. I'll link her hard time series in the show notes and on the website. She all kinds of dishes from times of deprivation including hot water pie grapefruit. Peel steak toast soup. And even the Haitian dirt cookies which you can hear more about in episode number ninety four. My name is mud while we can be grateful that recipes like ketchup soup and peanut butter and mayonnaise. Sandwiches are behind us. Some food created during the depression is still with us. Meatloaf is a comfort food classic and shaping food into loaves go to during the Great Depression. The same goes for casseroles which were a good way to use up odds and ends or to mask less palatable ingredients the depression also gave us the mother of all comfort. Food Kraft Macaroni and cheese or kraft dinner for my friends up. North in Nineteen thirty seven craft heard about a salesman from the tender Roni. Macaroni Company of Saint Louis. A Scottish emigrant aimed grant Leslie going rogue and selling his noodles with packets of greeted kraft cheese attached. They hired him to promote the concept and started selling it for nineteen cents for four servings.

Although you know John had been attracted by Josephine's flamboyant performer persona he thought once they were married she would settle down and be a typical French wife attending to close meals business. Thank you notes kids. Although Josephine had long to be a wife can have a normal life. She soon realized she could not leave the stage she also had a miscarriage which put more strain on the marriage when she found out John was having an affair Josephine retaliated by I haven't one of our own and then by nineteen thirty nine their marriage was foundering and then they were divorced by nineteen forty in early September nineteen thirty nine France formally declared war after Germany.

She said France made me what I am. I will be grateful forever. The people of Paris had given me have given me everything they have given me their hearts. I've given them mine. I am ready captain to give them my life. You may use me as you wish. She's a fucking spy now. How cool is that and our words made clear that not only wish you motivated by hatred of racism but by her love the Parisians in France Josephine was was told us her social contact with Ted as many embassy parties as possible just appear carefree carefree and frivolous but keep an ear to the ground about German troop locations in Italy's plans for entering the war everyday Josephine reported for work at a Red Cross Center in a run down section Peres to to help prepare for refugees fleeing from Nazis Military Intelligence also told her look for possible German spies amongst the homeless refugees Once Week Josephine Sutphin flew a plane with Red Cross supplies to Belgium with the Red Cross shelter perform for the troops on the front lines during the Christmas season of nineteen thirty nine she sent fifteen hundred presents with a signed and photo of herself to French soldiers on the frontlines and I'm guessing if anyone had been measuring this specifically they would have seen a giant spike in French frontline masturbation late that Christmas night like you know I'm right?

Josephine becomes pregnant again from who no one knows and then suffers another miscarriage and sadly this one results in an emergency hysterectomy she subsequently developed infection quickly becomes peritonitis and then septicemia antibiotics not really routinely available until the late nineteen forties septicemia usually fatal so luckily she does survive because he's a bad ass mother sucker for next two and a half years she wrote in jeeps over the desert of North Africa entertaining allied troops under very very rough conditions she sang in hospitals bringing happiness and comfort to wounded soldiers.

It wasn't one religion or another but simply the idea of God that was everywhere. I like that Josephine appeared to have had the same open minded in accepting view of religion she did of race in December nineteen forty seven Josephine and Joe traveled to America or she appeared in a show called Perez sings again the American critics pain her stating her costumes and more talent than she did in her performances man fucking America tough not to crack Josephine Baker Joseph encounter purvey pervasive racism in America New York City.

There's a story about her eating lobster an address room when it was time to go on stage and when the stage manager pounded on her door she was annoyed the hero interrupted for meal and demanded that you go out and do her show so she just took her lobster onstage in eight in front of the crowd who apparently I thought it was just an odd part of the performance and helped it so what you'll make active weirder. She's getting on lots of extra animals so many charts bringing them to the theater now they would find rabbits nest in the wardrobes white mice in the drawers cats dogs and birds fucking everywhere baby tiger a Boa constrictor where some of the more exotic animals. She brought to her her job. She brought a young goat and a pig into theater she says you later she'd find animals more trustworthy than people would have a variety of pets for the rest of her life. Now I WANNA make it for just a little while like how would it be to be allowed to get that weird. I swear big enough. I don't need to bring a tiger. I JUST WANNA be big enough to have Mike doodles. Penny pooper and Ginger Bell be slowly lowered down to the stage during a standup show. I WANNA wear little capes and crowns sitting a little thrones. Maybe even happened a long time now and they're not even live. Maybe they're stuffed. Maybe it makes even weirder place to but I pet him and talk to them as if they still are live throughout the show. That's why I know I've made it. When I you get to do that? Kinda Shit and still sell tickets just being cut her first music record nine hundred twenty six. I actually listened to a ton of Josephine Baker musical physical you know doing the research for this for this podcast is good. It's way different than what I usually listen to. She'd sing songs in both French and English. I think are most familiar at least to me. He's blue skies. This is one from when she was young just getting going. Her voice is not as confident strong later but I still like it. Listen listen to this this this is a little bit of Josephine Baker Blue Skies it would be average cloudy or and grayness on me. Nothing it was nice quietly airbags in the background Akron just a little thing being things don't think the thing don't don't don't think keeping sometimes it's really sweet New Year Banjo in the background but also in nineteen twenty six josephine but I really liked. I listened to her. Yeah Tom this last couple of days and there's just something about her. Voice doesn't have great range. It never got like super powerful but there's just no again. Is that in fact there's something to it. It's like yeah I like that. I like listening to that doesn't help or it doesn't hurt me that she is a preposterous faucets tractive as well that never hurts also 1926 Josephine met a strange little man named Giuseppi Al Pacino claimed to be from Rome was really from Palmiro.

Also at times assistant also husband never legally marry because technically she's still married to William Baker. Oh Oh Willie number two from back in Philly Oh philly Willie Josephine and Pepito would have an odd relationship some saw him as a parasite clinging onto Josephine gene used for her money other saw him as a saint always standing by Josephine when she'd have sexual affairs with a variety of other men that she did not try to hide from him and that he was not into but the the other had some kind of arrangement or he just put up with it in nineteen twenty seven Baker starting her first silent film called Silent Siren of the tropics sorted Kapito. This is why some people thought he was a little bit parasite he gave himself three different paying jobs in this project he was producer helped direction and played a small role onscreen even though no one cared at all of us in this movie Oh you're not the movie tells a story of a native girl named Papa toll played by Baker who falls in love with the Frenchman named Andrei bevill and to be honest for me doesn't hold up I couldn't keep paying attention to it for more than a few minutes time but to be fair. I'm not someone who enjoys old silent movies from the twenties in general. I don't think I've ever like to single one. I've watched you know compared compared to now they just. Ma Opinion made Super Shady movies and I think of course they did. I don't buy it when people get really into like era film. I not as fucking this terrible. They were just getting started. They didn't know what they were doing. Track again. Despite not being a fan of wooden caption dialogue like Papa also spoil you the rent money and if view do not believe me you ask Bam Boola. It felt like they took the writers fucking ten minutes to write this entire movie. I will say Josephine is super graceful graceful in it her body controls amazing shakes dancing and complicated movements look as easy just walk in a breathing and she looks somehow. This is interesting about her to me. Somehow very modern like an eerie degree agree like a horror movie. She would like start like talking directly to me like she looks like she has to be still alive somewhere. Does it make sense like sometimes I see the old footage I think yeah like someone who longtime ago. Dogs like someone who lived in a time before modern dental care and find lotions someone who never got a chance to use sunscreen someone who never heard of a push up or multivitamin but some people I think are I'm sorry yes all those people I see I see I think we'll have you prison for Sherban dental on time but then other people might talk doc what how does this footage from a hundred years ago like you look across the street right now with Josephina thinks she looks like she part of the screen and not only blend in today's Today's modern society but dominated again become star again like she would crush instagram even though I didn't love it siren the tropic dig positive reviews from critics and the public alike people in Sweden aiden liked it so much that it was made of her in her likeness sold in Stockholm shops who staff ooh that's nice though rub and tug and the daughter Oh look at the Darla voted on your part American movie producers in Hollywood also WanNa Josephine to perform in their films and she turned him down which speaks to her star power she was so successful in Europe. Jill live in France so much she was like yeah. I'll fucking eat Hollywood. Nineteen Twenty eight Josephine appeared on a world tour of sorts twenty four cities in Europe and South America Erica back when he couldn't just buy direct flights or any kind of flights back before motion sickness pills no thank you this is Josephine would encounter some hardcore racism again now for the first time since you left America the Nazi movement is getting stronger. It's growing along with other racially intolerant and tolerant groups Eastern Europe also the Catholics protester performances performances fiercely in someplace like Vienna on the grounds of moral indecency in Vienna the Catholic Church actually held extra emergency masses directly Lia prior to her performances as if her dancing around topless was going to rip open a portal to hell. I am here is Satan. The dock titties have stood me for my eternal slumber gyrating African hips mimicking very natural in life-affirming out to procreation creation have pushed God himself to give me permission to bring forth an army of demons the punish you for allowing those Dr Titties Joe Flap about in front of previously pure white men seriously what the fuck is wrong with people like the ridiculous shit that the people get worked up about making me so angry consistently the Australian parliament voted as to whether or not she'd be legally allowed to perform in their country you know and she was barely allowed allowed by the government again. Those dark titties watch a moral decadence might they unleash amongst the white folk. They'll watch one dancing. I'm just abandoned the white families and start fucking each other in the street when Josephine returned to Berlin where she previously been warmly embraced Nazism it got much much stronger foothold Nazi hecklers start showing for her performances literally just yelling racial slurs at her the middle of fucking show disrupting the performance until Josephine Josephine couldn't stand it had to cancel her remain performances Munich outright bans her from performing altogether right can't risk getting no superior area Ryan Dick's hard might make white men question. They're silly racist beliefs. If they get Boehner's over those dark titties luckily elsewhere in Europe she's received warmly in Romania and outdoor theatre Josephine dances or banana dance in the rain storm tossing away her umbrellas part as a makeup runs interface her face you know getting poured onto the costume disintegrates and the crowd goes wild Scandinavian audience has also loved her. Even though one Danish pastor had campaigned against her morality he attended a performance and became so thoroughly converted that he stood up in Sheridan the Swedish royal family excuse me attend to her performances including the Crown Prince Gustaf whom she's rumored to have had a little romantic fling with the girl who dreamed of Rotea may have had some routine or bedroom which have been kind of mind blowing in Amsterdam she did the Charleston and Dutch wooden clogs to the delight of the crowd Josephine found controversy controversy get in South America Argentina. The Catholic parties protested her as immoral the nation's president agreed but an anti-government party adopted her as a symbol of their ongoing political battles supported her at one performance. Both factions protested got into a little fight fights and started throwing firecrackers with one another which is a weird way to be angry one another like I it didn't evolve into a real brawl. Just you know just showed up and through our crackers wearing committees and Shit I guess grown men act like weird. 10-year-olds Josephine returns to Paris. He's offered another starring role time. In at another theater called Casino Day petty and this show she would sing she would sing and shows for the rest of her career.

I bet not man penny ginger sleep in bed with Lindsay and I I'm fine with that but I would not be fine with a cheetah the might slice faces animal the night and where was it cheetahs saying they weren't in a little hotel room anymore. Josephine and Pepito bought a thirty room mansion in an upscale suburb in the Western Bank of the river. It was named the beautiful oak because of the gorgeous oak trees that line the long driveway it looked almost like a fairy tale castle complete with pointed turrets dormer windows medieval shields I mean she is living like a royal life now. Each room this place had its own theme from a Louis the fourteenth bedroom to an Indian room with temple bells in a room next to the master bedroom. She installed cages for monkeys monkeys in another room. should an avery for parrots parakeets cockatiels cockatoos Roman the ground ducks chickens geese pheasants Turkeys all sorts of flower gardens on the estate to the point that she hired full three full time gardeners.

Washington Theatre Josephine. Ti leaders manager whose real name was Red Burnett Burnett. That's right now. We're talking again years later. Redwood recall I seen Josephine saying she was a bitty thing. Standing there singing to the people shed a lovely voice and Kinda handled herself like Diana Ross she was just thrilling. He made a mental note that as soon as he got a chance he'd find south of her to do and help out the theater. Take her off the streets. His opportunity came a few weeks later when the weekly show at the theater was being given by touring troupe called the dixie steps there producer Bob problem his troop was short and act during the previous previous week's book and in Kansas City is husband wife. Kali team had fallen out with each other so badly that they'd split both personally and professionally gone their separate ways now needed a replacement a Burnett one side of the Jones Family Band Old Man Jones was sent for the whole family including Josephine was worked into the show. The band was scheduled to perform two spots and during one of them Josephine would do a little comedy dance. Her dancing was a hit she later say seeing everybody looking at me. Electrified me is if I'd had a sluggish Jin as a touring comic for coming up on twenty. I totally get it and a good crowd can make phil well when you're sick. Make feel rested when you're exhausted and if you're already feeling good make you feel like the most alive you've ever felt and his red Brunette proudly recalled years later the minute. She hit the stage Archer back like an animal she she just like a rooster flipping tail. She was a natural by now at age fourteen Josephine's huge repertoire of steps or leg goofiness interface pulling her you know making silly faces who was beginning to develop into a style entirely her own. She was a true original. Never stick into a set routine. She didn't really know any set routines. Instead she just kind of jump into whatever next step felt right she just completely improvised dances and the spirit spirit of the music just like a proficient jazz player do a she became like this living dancing embodiment of jazz of the Jazz era too many she jumped from one appropriate routine to another other like good Blues Guitarist Houston Right Scales kind of whip up the appropriate solo on the fly for whatever key the song was in producer. Bob Russell was amused enough by Josephine's dancing to hire her in the Jones family band to stay with troop for the rest of its tour. She happily accepted how cool she's going on tour think about where she was just a few years ago be incentive by her mom to be a child made and sleep in his cellar with a three legged dog no fence bojangles sleeping in a bed with her entire family choosing to lay on the floor of the fucking rats to get away from the Smell over overstep dad's feet using newspapers for blankets no longer going to have to eat our old discarded fruit nails. No longer have to steal a little chunks of coal to make a couple of pennies for the family those lay days of Vaudeville hundreds of acts touring theaters all over America mostly booked by few big agencies assembling shows and sending them out on the road. The Big White Book is the time where the United Booking Office booking office yeah run by BEF Keith Edward Albee an agency long defunct folks now and the William Morris Agency which is very much still around William Morris merged with another talent company. If years back is now known as William Morris Endeavor or sometimes just as endeavor her. I remember meeting William Moore's agents early micro to comedy festival in South Beach and Florida desperately wanted them to want to sign me. They did not Dang it. Oh my heck luckily many years later. UTA would sign. I love work with them and William Moore's can suck my Dick now better at all better bitterness black performers nineteen twenty they had their own agency the theater owners booking association known as Toba which functioned most in the south and Midwest hiring blacks to play only two blacks very segregated. It was told that it was handling the Dixie steppers tour title would die with the Great Depression not that many years later some of the theaters which the White Vaudevillians played were pretty terrible but the places is it. We're the black performers played were always worse. Many were rickety wooden shacks off with leaking roofs broken seats. Sometimes members of the audience had to sit on the floor but the Dixie steppers made made the best of whatever venue they were performing. May My reminds you. The early stand appears most road comics attorney comics that travel and do shows all the countries opposed to comics who tend to stick into you know one or two markets like New York or la where they do stand up at night usually do something else from the day. It's a writer actor producer anyways. There's a lot of road comics. When I got started traveling in late two thousand early two thousand one we get paid? I tour working one nighters essentially a one nighter any venue that decides to have comedy either one show a week or even less like once.

That's their quote the blast black rights organization that end up Lacey Pe- estimates number at one hundred some estimates that roughly two hundred and fifty African Americans were murdered over the course of those three days. It was the worst race riot in American history and e Saint Louis would never be the same and young Josephine Baker was an eyewitness to it. All the riot called a purge by some seems like a more apt description so seared into her memory. She recounted it again and again for the rest for life forty seven years later when interviewed for Esquire magazine Josephine would say e Saint Louis was a horrible place. Yes worse than the deep South. I was a little girl. All I remember is people they ran across. It's the bridge from East Saint Louis to escape the rednecks whites killing and beating them. I never forget my people screaming. A friend of my father's face shot off a pregnant woman cut open. I see them running to get to the bridge. I have been running ever since that man stuck with her as it would. The riot change race relations race relations nations in the Saint Louis Area for years and years to come.

Twelve black men were arrested for serious crimes local black population both e Saint Louis and Saint Louis us now had something new to worry about racism of course it existed before as had you know constant insults segregation sporadic violence including wins but nothing like an all out three day violent purge urge Josephine wanted nothing more than to get the fuck out of Saint. Louis put us memory long behind her who's bad enough that her mother had twice sent her away from home to work now. It seemed the gangs the white racists to render you homeless by burning your home to the ground.

"Of cows brought into city to fulfill their hamburger patty and leather boot destinies. The smell of death was quite literally in the air day and night the stench of the slaughter houses tanneries in meatpacking factories waft over the narrow cobbled gas lit streets of the city neighborhood neighborhoods were also coated in soot constantly being dispersed from railroad activity. Saint Louis was a huge railroad town. If you're old time evil guy with the handlebar moustache you enjoyed tangles to some train tracks Saint Louis Account and this is important when Josephine was born and Joseph born march wasn't Saint Josephine some it may feel that she suggested me the Saint Louis area was one of the most important interesting areas in America in regards to black American Culture Saint Louis Super Interesting history especially when it comes to African Americans. Let's dig into that a tiny bit before we bounce back into Josephine's. Life city was founded in seventeen sixty four as a trading post on a long bend the Mississippi River and like much of the southeastern South Eastern U. S. at the time it belonged to France as the town grew French culture would influence his character was named after King Louis. The ninth of France actually technically founded founded Saint Louis belong to the Spanish but because we're traveled so slow back in eighteenth century local French explorer didn't know that they didn't know that their king had given away their territory when do like like these useful finance now. It's like it's like in Spain technically but you know you'll figure that out to find the the French founding interesting considering how France would later become such an important part of Josephine's life who become her true home her spiritual home and yeah just you know where she would actually live for most life and the place that would make her a superstar in in the early nineteenth century one of the many things a French gentleman was judged by was the refinement of his servants so as a matter of pride for many French slave owners to see that their slaves were very well educated education which is very different than slave owners and most of the English territories who strongly discouraged any type of self improvement from their slaves actively try to keep them uneducated by the they head to hide learning because they wanted them. You know easier to to be able to control. I guess most English slaves were literate. Often received no formal education whatsoever many French slaves could read and right and if slave had ability at some type of like craftsman or as an artist a painter or sculptor their skills would actually be encouraged their talent will be nurtured which is so fucking weird to me considering that they were still still enslaved by like what a weird situation to put somebody into only Maurice. This voter is beautiful as when you work with oils you'll pay great the tension you'll lessons. I was thinking eases time. You'll try someone praise on these O- only to work with some watercolors missy must have here. I rather focus on the oil you you will get you whip as fucking crazy like how does it to educate someone encouraged their natural talents but not freedom it in a way. It seems almost more cruel to me because I I would imagine that the smarter you get the more aware you would be a of the evil nature of your own slavery. some slaves life's chieftain even brought education by attending their masters on trips to Europe. It'll be educated in Europe because education Saint Louis became an early leading pre-civil war senator emerging black intellectual and artistic culture by eighteen three when France sold land in America the United States all eight hundred twenty eight thousand square miles of it. It was the Louisiana purchase there were some five thousand African Americans in the Saint Louis area comprising both slaves and some free men and women whose owners had emancipated them so I guess that's that's nice though it happens. Sometimes this was more than the white population of only a few thousand trading post grew into a town in the city immigrants from other European countries as well as France began to flood into it many he came from Germany others from Spain Greece Italy Syria Ukraine one reason why they chose Saint Louis was because the ground around it was fertile and it was located in a great place for nineteenth century transportation methods growing number of railroads were cutting through Saint Louis. The Mighty Mississippi connected to other cities as far as part is a Pennsylvanian the north New Orleans and in the south many of these newly arrived European immigrants had no prejudice against blacks released last precious many even held anti-slavery opinions prior to the civil war. You're so you know America prior to the civil war not a good place in general for Black Americans but Saint Louis was one of the better places for black Americans also strong musical tradition as far as in the city a many local African Americans began to study music informal European tradition the standard of black musicianship in Saint Louis became as high as anywhere else America and then when the civil war ended in April of eighteen sixty five in southern slaves were free to flood of them immigrated north and one of the most common immigration destinations Saint Louis they heard was this magical land. You know where there's opportunities for everyone. Black Americans are living in Saint Louis before the civil war. Were comparatively doing pretty well compared to other urban you you know black populations around the states. Thanks that French education you know they were educated craftsman. They were the best artists musicians Barbara's caterers etc.. Many of them settled on the south. The city city southside living in substantial houses. Even though segregation was the rule in many areas of life in Saint Louis their children at least in the initial wake of the civil war attended attended both publican parochial schools with the children of white people. The freed slaves migrated northbound less skilled worker in Saint Louis. you know area they're hoping for they're worked as field hands servants dockers reporters other types of factory work. Many of the men were building the rapidly growing railroads by nineteen hundred Saint Louis had become the the biggest railroad junction and all all of America when it's famous union station was completed in eighteen ninety four forty two different roads met there and I jumped ahead of myself when they initially got there they did find work which is why you know L. Sony will kept coming resembling Medieval Castle Stone this as union station covered three acres in the heart of downtown Saint Louis served more passengers than any other railroad station the entire country no longer train station case you'd curious ceased operation in nineteen seventy eight as an active train terminal fancy hotel an aquarium supposed to open over the next few months so check that out. If you like aquariums here anyway the huge influx of blacks and Saint Louis after the civil war from the south that by nineteen o four the time of the world's fair I it was it it was not quite the Mecca of upper crust of African American life that it once had been because too many people moved in way too many many of them former slaves who weren't educated weren't skilled craftsman and there just weren't enough jobs to go around by nine seventy four it was getting hard for unskilled men to find work in Saint Louis. It'd been good for a few decades gates and now poverty is growing year after year and so is racial tension white unskilled labor is starting to really resent the influx of their black counterparts competing for the same jobs especially especially since we're willing to work for less wages wages paid by white factory owners. I might add it seems that the anger those white factory workers was misplaced right. Don't don't be mad at the dude willing to work for less than a fair wage be mad at the employer willing to pay them less than a fair wage. now back to Josephine's family when Kerry Jerry McDonald arrives from South Carolina she's accompanied by her mother and her elder sister Elvira Alvarez had lost her husband in the Spanish American war of eighteen ninety eight now received a small pension from the US army. She was at pension to rent a small apartment. In the poorest part of St Louis on Lucas Street little little tiny apartments crammed in houses.

The popular music of the day was ragtime and Saint Louis with its strong musical tradition had some the very best ragtime players in the entire world originally developed informally by Random Midwestern pianists penis. Excuse me and later formalized by composer pianist like Tom Turban Scott Joplin eventually arranged for Orchestra's ragtime became why widely popular all over America beginning in eighteen nineties and and the subject of ragtime time does bring me to today's sponsor today is brought to you by ragtime gets the whip recently rediscovered album ragtime classics reinterpreted by none other than musical go master Albert Fish. Let's hear a sneak peek of how Albert added some some really really Nice heartfelt lyrics to Scott Joplin's nineteen o two classic the the entertainer not when you crave some sexy he party when you need sleep out in Spain when you need.

I don't believe he was no devasting in real life anyway. It makes me happy to be able to do like that back back to real history they lose was live with music and dancing. Josephine's mother Carey was an exceptional dancer carry good dancer. I'm an idiot. She also I also wanted to be performed St Louis slightly nightclub in theater scene and she's a bit of acting local theaters at the gate theatre.

"This is a three CR podcast and this is published or not good morning. Jennifer has again is not that delights. It's a wonderful you better get. I should too and I'm going to talk about chocolate boxes. Start off with because in a chocolate box he get chocolates with a mixture of Hod God soft and Chewy centers and with a book of his short stories this also an intriguing mix. Josephine rar returns to publish welcome back. Thanks for having me jam by the mixture of sittings it would appear that over the last years you've been traveling the Wool Josephine Christophe. Yes that's been a bit of traveling. That's being some long stints of living in other places as well but that I think is is definitely gently reflected in the collection well with some of the stories there. Is that link back to Australia but with others. It's a sense of discovery of actually with the story he's going to take place which takes the raiders and of course your characters from America to Canada to series even to the nullarbor mixture right this. The process isn't just wear the stories takers. It's how the stories unfold the I is called Glee and you won the Elizabeth Jolly Short story competition with this one. Oh that's right in twenty sixteen yes so as it being published somewhere somewhere else as well it was what was known as published three the astray and book review. I think it's going to be up in in America on electric literature but it's a it's in the book but it's in the book a heartbeat and good things and bad things can happen in a heartbeat before we actually find out what is he's necklace. Can you give us the most incredible family remembrance of any family enjoying a by luminous. It is a form of phytoplankton thank you and and so we have this this family trekking through through the water and the older brother. What did he do with his little sister. Oh he was towing her along on a on a rough burqa pots and when a break apart he carried in his shoulder he really has got this beautiful beautiful sense of responsibility that we see very very early on but then carrying older brother who's either Kayla's idiot at based or a murderer at worst so he's just returned after six six years and I'm going to get Josephine row to just read a little bit about something I think in Australia we often see suddenly only the crosses planted at the shoulder of the highway. Do not stand for two tiny girls and missing teach a mother. They stand for small town. Intolerance grudges is bone longer than its fair on necessary nourished by the kind of rural oxygen a larger city would have starved them off so the the brother older brother returns after six years and what happens then this is quite something anyway. The narrator of the story is his breath uh-huh sister a brother. Oh my goodness I can't. I think a lot of minor raiders are a male or have lives that are very different to mine and and I think in this the instance with this story I was interested in layers of sibling rivalry which often can be more explicit between same gender and in the case of Wrath and in defend their their half brother said that the two mixed race family as file no I saw differently than that sort that brothers probably didn't and how much they watched show other than brooded out and that's what I got out of that the watching any at the factory in the next story the real real life the narrator is at Uni Dropout and she is described as a wholesome looking girl. Commit Jodi possibly doing scams. He wanted a wholesome looking girl right and now Johnny's come back into to her life. He had he had it with lose weight lose a wing. Lou Louisiana Louisiana top seeing marshmallows at tame alligators to distract wine tours children. That's gotta be a reason to go into Canada right into the thick of Apollo Vojtech sir sudden I wouldn't make the same decision dirty do and there's a lot of decisions to be made in this book but not by Jodi because his girlfriend uh knows that he's this people you can have but not cape and jody's one of them pregnancy is a connection action to another story and this is anything remarkable and you saying this is the last of the stories book right so I think I've I write the collection Sean ever about seven years and and some of the stories Glee squishy mentioned some of the smuggled longer stories set in Australia aaliyah started out maybe in two thousand twelve or twenty thirteen and I've been sort of I was bothering them right up until print but anything anything remarkable came came together quite quickly and I think in a bit of a head full of steam and smoke around the time of the Long Virginia Marriage Amendment Austrailia and a very important question. Are you using your body for anything remarkable so linking of pregnancies between those chooser another connection between stories would be grief and he I'm going to ask Josephine were to read again from page sixty and this. This is an image that stayed with me for a long time after I finished. She has come here to how to how on hindered you know this before. She opens her lungs and begins the sound. Aga- need agonizing and though you cannot know the root of the anguish it is familiar to you from the town through the trees the sound of bells. She has timed her bowling to the church bells meaning perhaps that she has done this before done this often. For how long has she done this months years. Her Hood is up but you Kinda. She could not be much older than your wife than yourself. She has smooth slender hands that taught now fingers splayed as though they too who are emitting sound alight terrible force look this grief such intense grief and for two of the stories only isolation will help knowing no one so no one knows your story whereas Sivy move to self to oh well named the North American town. She is come from she's come from France after a particularly traumatic incident that we might say because it was while story and killed herself into the smallest possible place she can find and she's got money but this place has no luxury no and she doesn't she doesn't want to buy which doesn't want to go out. She doesn't want to do anything and the name of the short stories chevette which the name of the dog could share a neighbor's dog that she looks off to who kind of chose her out of aw that brings bats live to Chevette and then this Natia who world she's moved into a small cleared space versus Merkley. Oh so this is set in in Newfoundland actually in Canada for anybody who doesn't really know it's sort of like Tasmania of Canada similar size similar populace. That's an island off to the east and this particular place is very a remote access is only accessible for certain parts of the year when the when the water is across the pond is frozen and can actually be driven over with an ATV well. It may be a feral cat here with kittens that helps with her grief but what what was she couldn't do with all the baby things that she had. I think that I think we could leave that to you. The rate either well has the ability to throw things away. Soren sinkers rise truth. there was the mother and son who had on the mother's birthday every year had gone for a row on a lake and thrown cake crumbs from aboard cake. A into the water was really nice things that love those lovely descriptions corruptions in this short story about the viscosity of the water was underneath the water so that's sort of It's not one of the a particular towns but I was thinking a lot at the time about places that are very vivid in the Australian psyche that have become quite iconic and eh submerged towns for the Snowy Mountain hydroelectric and then with severe weather changes these towns that have been submerged are emerging again and we're kind of seeing what's under there and even stories about the how how the certain times the the church bells tolled rings. You know that's that's that's a kind of long standing Australian. I wanted to play it without a little bit it well in relief to all the grief. There is bemusement. Even from the title the once drowned man we just as confused confused as the taxi driver. Where does where does he want to guy wants to go to Canada and he wants to go there to thank a man who saved his life extensively other than exactly sorry foul early in the spas conversation they have on on this long drive this serendipity that brings in conversations and remembrances like the circus starving pasta circus they both have stories that they the passenger and the driver related about this. Does the circus and this drive up look. I love this little click into technology that you so to say. The driver is talking about all of these It's very hard to verify the grandiose claims of strangers a quote from the book. Our phones would just for phoning in and it was saved. Presume most people were full of smoke but safe still will not call them. I think that that's pretty clever. It's a female taxi driver. Who is his in Mike have with this man for a number of hours and so I just wanted to kind of let the two of them talk and the uneasiness and the guarded nece that was that but also the sort of amount talks about good faith a lot and that story so it's a sort of contrast of those two things yeah. This man was talks about the nicest thing that somebody has said to him and I'm sure it wouldn't have been a dentist saying that you had an uncomplicated to mouth looking for a big accomplishment compliment than that and other stories the only connection a couple now have is the porno movies when they were very much younger and a lovely line by Joseph Noor that all the she's feeling feeling that she's just wasted a life of course all the lives she wasn't living lined up uselessly tacky. Snow Globes from places she had never been places where it doesn't even snark get this clever so this stunning writing about how disasters do not choose people and the from between silence and hush. I thought that was beautiful so Josephine row in her collection. Is it cold here until August. We didn't have anything about August much in the book tool. We had some interesting that you call that it it previously had a different title. what is the what's the quickest way. I can explain this. I think of August as being well I what I think of August I have sort of of it which is the North American late summer time aplenty and then I have the very insular Interior Melvin August on my minded while so it's sort of about this through him sees a story to it's a short story collection of departures and heartbreak with characters on the verge of pivotal decisions and lifting. Oh what's going to happen which is exactly what a good short story should have should do to you so thank you very much. Josephine Roy with here until August from blacking thank you Jan and Josephine has traveled but traveling overseas can be fraught with danger but when you are a veteran of Vietnam you have extraordinary resources at your disposal..

If you intentionally work the London verse specific way it is going to affect you magic inverse specifically but what I'm saying is you can't divorce yourself from the yeah yeah to Ivan question for you which always fascinated me about your writings about the way I also perceive when we talk now when I read your little postings on facebook answer because you are one first approaches your work. Let's put it sounds like on your website does sealed of hieroglyphs in the back as a background image. You work a lot with addiction with Egyptian magic or Egyptian symbols symbolism. Also the Korea book is much much in their the book of Gates just mentioned that there's a lot of things around in your in your work at one would immediately put into the drawer roar cold high magic. I don't like it that expression but you know but that's what being used degree yeah on the other hand what what we were just talking about for half an hour the land and people and male female and all those things the of course it's overlapping of course but as I at first sight many people would at ron today drawer uh witchcraft low magic again again. I'm saying I hate those distinctions but they are being made uh-huh and your work is to me jumps at me because it does not do that because it it takes those two hearts at the same honesty at the same level. Maybe I see that in distorted rail but by correctly but do I see it right or wrong and if if so what's your point of view you then how do you do that. Why do you seem to be one of the rare. Ones who've stat wealth in low magic is is I. It's it's relatively molten is concept and it usually comes after the months of people who don't know very much about magic and is like a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous saying and some some stupid thing and and this is where you get people fool who am. I don't WANNA put people down at the same time. The needs to be honest with this is says lots lots of people that go into magic not just because they won't magic but because you know they want to belong. They want an image each. They won't say yes they will they won't they batch robes fe. They won't shoot belong in house hierarchy in this certainly other and so define themselves in a very specific way and drawer very neat rows you know with what won't people cope Inverted Commas is very much. Stay productive freemasonry. You know that was the first onto belly from the seventeen hundred sway you had the fits the Heinrich Kate very set way of looking because not have the consciousness false at that time that sound people sold and it was naturally forward in time and other people you know the you have folk magic which is in every country in the world and that tends to be people doing their own thing. I mean the whole idea that they will which crtv coffins and they had coal drippin's and ribs steaks aches and outfits things. It's all bullshit again. It's Sasha Coins Sultan to the memory of the people who actually worked within tribal and traditional insults magic day between the savage and you know they are to cry and the the English particular very good defining themselves as the aristocrats and everything else is being the barbarian not mentality it seeped into modern sinking magic is part of nature. You know isn't something took off. In a temple temple encloses it confines it works with it for excite saying that is not natural coasts natural element. Is You breathe. The End you know the just get very complicated because there's there is definitions within metric but not in the high low but as saying much chick the you work with to develop ask human thing to develop everything arranged you some sense of upon the Lange people everything basically that's Suan Taco magic is another talk music which is all thank the individual and nothing else. I will do Magic to get why won't now you can get into moralistic arguments for the decision right which is a so-called to do with anyone except for persons during the magic it's business that would be more of the definition we think because both styles of those of much cannot wait us or potentially can use the most complex rituals the most natural rituals the most natural magical behavior. He's the land in the temple can be used in any associates eight snow the presentation of the magic that there's a separation. It's the intent behind it that is the only difference is the intent focused behind that right right now. I hope what I have here is a question isn't going to sue bid but what motivates motivates you and of course many of course but what motivates you in particular for example to be as so much taking the Egyptian symbolism as a background or maybe more the underlying it's not actually the underlying force folks it is in Korea in the coast itself it could have you noticed folks. Don't use chips and stuff is in the close. Hello speakers the structure as a purely technical this is the thing is people have to devos in their mindset difference between belief in religion didn't much technique because two very different things and from a technical perspective fuel training magician from scratch each to adapt level the needs to be a structure that training can sit on top of a foundation and they need to have lots of different experiences an and go down different rousson different traditions but the needs to be skeletal structure the whole second can enhance together with and the ship. Shen system is the most stable I've ever come across. In terms of of a magical patent not the religious beliefs magical patents is incredible so hence they would acquit sat and they work with lots of things as well but it comes back to that because you know the oldest and most stable that has endured for over fine thanks. CBS and this is why it kept popping out in the minds of magicians of hundreds of years freemasons like an archive yet. The freemasons fellow worked with it. You know you go back through Egyptian stuff turns Kenneka three hundred years before that and even when you're looking in early mysticism system set for example in Christine and Sufi mysticism without them realized they'd say we're actually using the Egyptian princely patents in some of them without realizing is because it's so stable it passed from generation to generation. That's why right right thank you. That's that's a very good point and again. It brings us directly to Korea. Because of course we cannot do this. Talk here there without at least talking a few few moments about Korea Sequeira for those of you who do not know but I don't think there are many who do not no east magical school that Joseph has created with other species. She's motor and to motivate that online line and which you can get in book form also online for free which is great thing and it's a great course is just to me. It's I hesitate saying it but to me that I know that's really honesty and we're not going to do a whole talk about Korea that has been done earlier but but maybe he would just like to add something other experiences you made over the last couple of years since we last spoke and what what may be my future ideas of plans you might have to just maybe just a few words talking night's sleep the students during the world and there's keep of stocks earn tips and then realize it's really hard were so they they tell off. It's like if you want to do the rail share is thrilled but when you do the real shit in anything is he's really honed work and there's there's some very well in a similar stage now of mentoring people through houses insure section function and we've we spent a year restructuring in the background sto making it secure for the long term. Tim Future because of these things can go rogue and net chick go rogue so I've met show that this checks and balances so the Congo Dot com turned into some money grubbing goodwill Nacho there are now balances in the background grounds that would stop me from doing and I'm not talking legal checks and balances we have a board the trustees and we have a student council and the Joel basically keep in check because Powell voice needs to be kept in check and until says people who've gone through the whole call commands run as the tablets which will take a while because theory loan covenant and host and they come out they become Pau the structure itself the consoling structure still there recount the lockdown intending to co all of these things there are people who don't magician involved in Mitchell space of illegal people oh and their finances things like that so it'd been doing all of that not too long negotiation and conflict with lawyers to put they work together to make it literally a now the next fish for the next next year. We're just in the plumbing saved. He's doing events next year so like they want to do across streets confidence in England which will not be one of the solidifies make very expensive on prince this but one grassroots people of on just magicians but pagans which crashed bringing people together to talk about things that we everyone thinks is important people talking about work because also important.
