"I'm not. I'm not supporting riverside. He's got his work cut out for. Let's go to Tick-tock international moment. It's time for the talk international moment. you guys are hikers right. Big hyper hikers in this group. I know we'll get hike. It's been been smoking. But i love to go hike. Yeah yeah i. I don't know if you guys news wants to five days on the appalachian trail in in the great smoky. It's no big deal. Pretty impressive saul black bear but we had to cut the trip short. Do one of a guys almost freezing to death will night due to being underprepared for the nights up. They're very important to be prepared in climbing mountains. Which brings me to my first story in sweden. Where six irish hikers had to be rescued from the top of sweden's highest mountain called cabinet. Kasai cassette kosei cabinet. Kasai cab ivan ivan. Put it in like ways. I can understand it. And i can't jackson kick us off by saying cabinet. Say yeah it's at twenty one hundred feet. Above sea level child's play really compared to the six thousand plus feet peaks. I was summoning on the. At that's what. Us pro hikers called the at any rate twenty one hundred feet above twenty twenty one zero zero a. It's very small. Yeah so any group. The eddie rate the group of six likely hung over irish friends set off on sunday to summit the the giant peak but on their way down the weather conditions took a bad turn and they got separated because clearly. The strong hikers left the slower hikers for dead otherwise it's almost impossible to get separated hiking. That's just how it happens. You leave someone behind supposed to be a short walk this. Yeah well the put into perspective. Whales building the world's calls building the burst khalifa's twenty seven hundred feet high. So they couldn't they couldn't even make it. They're fifty two hundred feet so it's like yeah twenty one hundred seats like a third of a mile or two thousand foot. Climb is probably big. But if you're like on a trail just like walking up a big hill takes you hours away. Quarter the way to denver exactly right so at any They were able to use a cell phone. They got separated that we're able to use a cell phones call for help but not before spending a long night in the mountain at fourteen degree temps which really must have sucked for one more on who is wearing shorts because he didn't think this was going to happen. Obviously also luckily. For the hikers. Swedes prepared for hordes of drunk irishman who flocked there at the start of autumn and have little A little hot setup there Just in case this happens. The president of the swedish mountain rescuers national organization said that this is a common thing this time of year and quote. They had bad equipment bad clothing. The mountain rescue or in that area had to watch last night because they couldn't get the helicopter up because it was too cloudy they got airlifted. Everyone's fine like i said not false. Got airlifted basely. Somebody couldn't handle it and they fought the rest of the group so we can't leave this one person behind strong guys came up there and piggyback down. Yeah it's pretty eight. This happens all over the place. I went on a bachelor party in catalina island and they have a very similar hiked the top of like the island. I guess the to the peak of it or it's like it's a big. It's a hike that most people the average person wouldn't wanna walk it. You know but that allergy. That's true did you hear about the cop that went on like a tender date with some girl from outta town and left her to die on the trail utah. What saw i think he went on a date with her and she disappeared. I think i think he might have killed her. And they don't know yet but yeah you just like he just like left her quote unquote right popped off. There's the peak. Yeah that's impressive. Twenty one hundred feet. yeah anyway. let's let's let's move on to france for a great one. Actually this is actually a really good one. American born french performer josephine baker paddle pop video. Later quite a beautiful lady. You've got to trust me. We'll be entered into paris's pantheon mausoleum making her the first black woman to receive that prestigious. Honor the pantheon is where the french bury their most iconic figures and baker will be just a sixth woman to bestowed with that honor among eighty or so other men and women And other here's a french culture and achievement josephine was born in saint louis in nineteen thousand. Six rose to international stardom in nineteen thirties after moving to france to pursue a career in show business. She was also resistance fighter for her adopted country france during world war two fighting the nazis. I have a picture of her military uniform and had a role in the civil rights movement in the us. Marching alongside martin luther king junior and was there for his. I have a dream speech. What did you say she was she. She was fought against the nazis. I thought you said alongside for nuts. No she she marched alongside martin. Luther king okay. I would have been a big turnaround fighting with the nazis. That mlk misheard it. Yeah you must. Maybe i said it wrong. I don't know but don't worry guys they're not going to dig or body up and move to the pantheon that would be in bad taste. Her actual resting place will remain in. Monaco and a plaque will be installed at the pantheon. This november baker has been on the list of possible in duckie's since two thousand thirteen and only the french president can give the final approval approval so after eight years over thirty thousand signatures. Mccrone finally did the right thing. It seems like i said. She gained stardom in the twenties and thirties. Because frankly the french had never seen a sister move on stage and were very impressed with her. Provocative moves during the war. Baker used her celebrity connections to gather information on german troop movements which she passed on scribbled on musical scores. She died in nineteen seventy five and was given a full military french. Honored at her funeral are great woman. Glad she finally got what she clearly deserved. Macron's wife probably fans probably saw her alive. Yeah we'll joke joke about whole macron's wife. He's an older lady right. And now finally to tanzania where president some saluhah hassan. I'm gonna see if i can pull this went up because it's pretty good there. She is you guys see. You're right She is nice looking lady. Right really nice looking lady not really very upset with whoever she yet looking at in that. Yes she's mean and she's a sixty one year old First female leader of tanzania. She made some remarks while hosting tanzania's under twenty three men's football team and during that match. Some mia said that while female footballers were making the east african country proud by winning trophies. She did not stand. They did not stand a chance of getting married because of the way they looked quote if we bring them here in line them up for those with flat chests you might think they are men not women. She.

"Josephine. Baker came to paris when she was just nineteen years old. It was the nineteen twenty s and. She was a performer. She already been singing and dancing in vaudeville shows across the us. Since she left home at fifteen you know she was a complicated woman who had a fight in her and the wherewithal to meave her own country because she refused to deal with the atrocities of racism and she made a life for herself in a foreign country. Which for a black woman to do even though lots of entertainers made the track. She became a star huge. Let's some big deal. You've probably actually seen pictures or watch recordings of some of the performances. That made josephine. Baker famous like the dunce of arch where she danced across the stage in a skirt. Made out of bananas critic at the time. Described it this way. She is in constant motion. Her body writhing like a snake or more precisely like dipping saxophone. Music seems to pour from her body. She lived out loud. And i love that about her. Some of the little details of her life are just like the greatest turing her stage shows that she had a cheetah who would would sometimes escape into the orchestra pit and like at an extra level of excitement to the show. That's such an amazing detail in such a you can really imagine that she cheat was a spy. Yeah just so you know what i mean. She was a spy for the british during world. War two right she. She was absolutely absolutely so you know. And there's all these things we don't know you know there's all these things we do know because you can. You can get her biography. Sound about the details of Just think about the things. We don't know you know gone unsaid. But she was a very unique woman at a very unique time in history. And i think that time in history makes her a lot more relevant also because she was pioneering. She would have been my friends in the late. Nineteen forties josephine baker bought the chateau day milad a renaissance castle in the french side. Just so our listeners can imagine it. What is the chateau look like. What is josephine baker. The chateau for me starts as you're driving up the road you can see the chateau from the distance. There are a lot of obviously chateau's in france and especially in the door don in that region. And they're all quite beautiful but the road to hearse. Place is one built with anticipation for us. But once you get inside the gates there's the gardens are absolutely beautiful and where you think they stop. You know there's little paths that lead down further inside. There are stained glass windows and winding staircases. The bathrooms have marble floors. And some of josephine's bejewelled. Gowns can be seen on display when tracy visited the chateau for the first time in two thousand twelve shoes. Already a fan of josephine baker but visiting the chateau being their alone and hearing someone's voice echoing through the halls. It connected. Tracy to josephine is sounds. I don't wanna sound weird. It wasn't until later that. I what i saw a video of her as coming out of her chateau and there's this video they show you and i was like. Oh my god. I do that. Same silly dance in front of my husband all the time having never seen her do it right and so the woman at the house said to me you know a lot of black women come here and feel like they can feel the spirit of her which is the whole reason for the pilgrim a pilgrimage really is and then i thought i need to take women out on this pilgrimage because this is a whole 'nother level is a whole new level of experience. Tracy started a travel business and the first trip. She organized was for just two women but with every new experience more and more women wanted to sign up and it was usually women that were over fifty that maybe had taken care of their families their whole lives or children or grandchildren and had finally given themselves permission to go out into the world. Some of them getting their first passports often their first opportunities outside of the united states. And so i was really proud of that. Tracy returned to josephine chateau over and over again and as she introduced new people to the castle eat introduced new people to her. Even met one of josephine suns once when she was visiting and since she's become friends with the castles current owner because we should note even though josephine baker loved this castle she ultimately lost ownership of it by nineteen sixty four josephine baker was in debt. She'd spent her money pretty generously. But you'd also been taken advantage of so. The chateau was put up for auction. Josephine was devastated. She barricaded herself in the kitchen and refuse to leave but the new owner had her forcibly removed. Jews week in shock and ended up being hospitalized her friend. Princess grace of monaco helped her find a new place to live and at age. Sixty two after having built a new life for herself in a foreign country after having served as a spy during world war two and spoken next to martin. Luther king junior at the march on washington just feed baker went back.

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. Ella encourage snack to focus on practicing group centered activism rather than leader centered activism in contrast to the SE L. C.'s leadership style with Mlk at the forefront.

What Dead Historical Women Can Teach Us About Dating and Sex

"For a long time i rode a sex dating column for the the new york post and i really appreciate that time in my life but since then i started writing about history and politics and every so often often someone comes to me and says would you ever consider writing a dating advice book and i always say the only way i would ever do that is if all of the advice is came from dead historical women and most of it was bad do you say as a joke yes always and then i said it to this one very nice editor on the phone who said well i'd love for you to do that can you can you get it in by june and i said yes and it was the easiest book sale i've ever made shots jets incredible i was gonna say did you sort of like say on to channel these women and because it's all of the advice sound so much in their voice it's just it's so good i'm i've always wished that somehow that would happen to me robert graves deflected criticism of his i claudius novels by telling a reporter that the entire manuscript had been dictated to him by emperor claudius himself in a dream so we don't want to start with that's a real humble brag it's a real humble brag of london emperor came to me and just story so no critiques please no none of none of these women came to munich dream cream i do read a lot of different books about them and took the cool historical tidbits that i found those books that i thought could be transcribed into good good advice for women right now what i really loved how in the insure you talk about how there's always some idiot on twitter that's like oh i wish women were women the way they used to be back in the day and like this book just kind of disproves that whole line of thought that is based on many real only no i'm i i have a twitter account i am yeah i'm familiar with dot com yeah and this totally disproves that way of thinking because women's since the beginning of time have kind and not been that ideal idea woman i think the more things change the more they stay the same and a lot of women in this book are doing things thanks i think we'd be considered very audacious by modern standards i'm kind of fascinated by grace kelly's end of a first date move where she would go into my i room of this and come up with no clothes and that's the way a lot of nudity so nudity in the book i'm also that's something that i really don't associate with grace as kelly in any of her alfred hitchcock movies now i love that and so you use that tibet to have her advice be make your feelings no yes she's real clear a lot of not scared to tell someone how they feel and then a yeah and then you write about how she'd be like go make some coffee and then go into the bathroom and come out naked i was like oh that is insane that that is actually what she did and i love that it's memorable also really feel like a man in the nineteen fifties and sixties when she was doing this probably just think they were making can coffee so let's talk about some more of the advice in the book patra that is the advice for making the first move what can we learn from her on making the first move cleopatra made i moves of really big and she really began her relationships with this very showy entrance entrance a lot of the mist and the stories about cleopatra hinge upon the idea that she was this ravishing beauty and she was us an attractive lady and they're all different ways of being beautiful but by any standards she wasn't especially good looking she was just really audacious basis and she really went for it and when she first met julius caesar she header self smuggled to him inside a federal that was dropped off at his feet feet and then lays blade before whose feet talking about how they could afford to an alliance which is not a thing that you might be able to recreate oh yeah like not necessarily you didn't like UPS to your lover a little desperate if we'd be really audacious lake uh-huh and then when she met mark anthony she had herself taken to him on a golden barge where she designed it to look like she was a goddess and she appeared to him if she was a golden goddess so cleopatra really thought about how she was going to plan her first move oof and i think it an age where a lot of us are very timid and wanna seem cool and have a call me maybe attitude approaching people cleopatra went for it like she went one hundred percent i honestly can kind of relate this particularly i'm on the part on the barge where she's the gold god it kinda can because so nicknamed gone on a first date and then i invited him to my holiday party and my holiday party i was like the star of the show like i i was going around with platters appetizers and like jello shots because this was like whatever like two thousand nine not the shots wherever cool but as i'm going around with platters never like laura oh my god like laura laura and i'm like the star of the show and i kinda take her advice to mean you know just be like the starve make yourself an unmistakable store yes staple star like have the attention be around you and it was like all my friends and it was like my house you know like i was the star of my holiday party and walked around like own my own the place grid right and i want to form an alliance that woman yeah i think that's actually a great way to translate that into modern day advice i feel like throwing party and inviting boys who have a crush on was also so big move i was single gal it usually worked really well unless the person didn't come in which case it felt like you were throwing that party for nine uh all these people are in my house i've got so many shots yeah i've been to your parties and you do throw a very good thank you i'm so you also have a section on slut shaming can you choose to feature josephine baker and that little micro in every possible way hero of the civil rights movement hero of the lost generation yet josephine baker is just the best and if you don't know her by name you definitely know her by image she's the one that has the banana skirt so oh you're right i'm writing in her voice say i'm writing as someone who danced topless and a banana skirt so why her for the slut shaming section i feel like josephine josephine baker is someone who had to go up against a lot of repressive rules of the time and i mean to head to leave america because she couldn't really prosper in america's a black woman and she was someone who i wouldn't say that she had no regard for those rules but she he was able to think about societal rules that served her and once it didn't and follow her own contents and her own desires and mm-hmm she strongly felt and i think many modern day women should strongly feel that her sexuality and her physical desires were nothing to be ashamed of she had a very large sexual appetite she loved having sex with people she had multiple marriages adopted a ton of children those desires did not impede her life in any way indeed the fact that she was comfortable in her body and comfortable with her sexuality is how she she became a great star and it was also because she chose to change her circumstances right by going to harris yeah we actually just did an episode on on if you should move if you you should mirror for data and just for a change of scenery if you're like in a funk also tried to come back to america and change everybody else's circumstances stances andrea four really hard for that i mean you can't obviously say that any one person was responsible for civil rights victories but she had a really huge detained in that
