"It would be fun to see this with you. Know some sororities. But i feel like they're much more secretive about their business. You know yet. Also because black sorority is they have a life outside and after college right. Yes in a way. That really scares me kamla. And all the as long and it's amazing because like your lack of knowledge about the as and then is absolutely seen as like you not being a real black person and it's just like i'm sorry going to my school band greek life. You know my mom is a delta. I grew up in a household. And i don't know that much about the dare delta sorority and most of what people now is either from their parents or from watching school days. So that's another internet thing where people tried to assert. You know binary it's like. Oh you don't know about rushing in black fraternities and sororities. Now i'm sorry i didn't go to grand blanc like my mother didn't thinking i think is just one of the craziest fat color combinations we've ever had. It's just so wrong on certain people again.

"Movement for overcoming inequality. But we really do need people who are on the ground who were working the political system. Whoever very long view is not going to happen in one year. It's not going to happen over. One election cycle. I think it's a miracle that the democrats actually are putatively in control of the senate by one. Vote kamla harris. I think it's a miracle that the democrats have the house will have the house but we can't rely on miracles right now. Let me just say one more thing. Yeah it's important that people who care about the future of this country take an play the long game. I am very sympathetic with people who come to me and say i'm burnt out. You know i've just. I've just been baying my head against a wall trying to make change trying to make social change that is progressive. And i can't do it anymore. Yes of course. I understand that i feel many times the same way but often people were burnt out. Have been doing it the wrong way. They've been taking too much responsibility on themselves. Personally they've not been allocating responsibility to others up been sharing responsibility. They've not been building a movement. They've not been pacing themselves. They not been thinking about the long term in some of these things take an entire lifetime. So yes you can get burnt out. But that's usually a symptom of not doing the right way. One of the things. I think about when you mentioned that though is how burnout we all got over. The previous four years in trump administration the constant onslaught of bad news of vitriolic speech. And i think all of it culminating frankly in the siege on capitol. There's an the temptation. I think to say that as a way almost as a defense mechanism not simply it but to simply say. I can't handle any more of this guy you know. I can't handle any more. What he is unleashed upon us. I just don't have the capacity to do it. Well it's easy to to look at the trumpers and they're still out there and they're fulminating and trump is fulminating and it's still a huge threat jor democracy and be cynical and say nothing will ever change. It's easy to look at climate change. It's easy to look at at our democracy. It's easy to look at a racism and just say Is always been with us. It will always be with us. It's always going to get worse and worse and worse we are doomed and basically tune out Well it's too easy to do that. I think the biggest danger honestly is not burn out the biggest dangerous cynicism. If many of us and by us. I mean progressives who care about this country who want social change who believe in the ideals of this country if too many of us just say no way. This is not going to happen then. It won't happen it so fulfilling prophecy of doom. And that's what the oligarchs and the white supremacists would really want more than anything else. They want us all to get cynical. They want us all to become defeatist. They want us all to feel that. Nothing is going to change in fact if anything it's going to get worse and therefore give up because we give up then we seed the entire ground to them and we must not do that. It's important that we keep on fighting. We can get angry. That's good angers. Bad anger is good. We can be outraged. That's.

"Government is urging people to return to the office. What impact is that going to have particularly on women. Many of whom have been working from home for over a year. We've had such a huge reaction from our listeners that we wanted to hear more. Boris johnson's called for a gradual return over the summer. The chancellor and some business leaders are calling for people to taper off homeworking for the sake of their prospects the economy and their wellbeing but research for the bbc art today shows that in an increasing number of jobs are being advertised with the option of working from home where we're gonna hear directly from listeners with a range of us and experiences all on all of this but i i'm joined by wendy hallett at wendy was a senior manager retail group arcadia and she oversaw top shop on street in london are on twenty years ago they. She founded her own retail company to create a flexible working environment for herself. When her children were young and nice she advocates this for her entire staff. Wendy welcome went very invited me on wendy earlier this week. We heard this suggestion. That civil servants should get their pay docked if they continue to work from home and the times newspaper has the story today. That tech companies. Google is planning something similar. I wonder if you think a financial penalty is the way to get employees back to the workplace and indeed if they need to be going back to the workplace at all. I definitely don't think that Starting off with looking at financial penalties to get back in the office is the right way to go. I think the fact that that has been so much more working from home so much. More flexibility for men and for women. It's not just a female Issue gives us a huge opportunity to look at how we do work so i think to come coming on a negative which he shall we pay is totally wrong and i do think that we should be looking at flexibility. I wouldn't advocate everybody working from home every single day but i think there should be now a flexible approach. This is a huge opportunity to narrow. I think the pay gap of anti changes the way we look at working going forward.

"Yeah a little bit and be something as simple as he started to see him as a threat for twenty twenty four and they don't think he should be the guy they want may become ill it to be the person and maybe that's maybe that's what he did wrong to light to turn this. I don't know i thought about that too. I was thinking about that a few months ago win. It was heating up with what he did with the nursing homes and then there was also kind of the beginning of talks of recall of gavin. Newsom is obviously going to happen and it made me think okay were these twenty twenty four contenders at the democratic party. Didn't want to get in the way of kamla now. I don't know how that is because kamla is so unpopular and like surely they're not going to try to get her to run against onto santa's but i mean who the heck knows so i was thinking about that conspiracy to but i do hate that. This kind of gives democrats away to say look. We hold people accountable. This is what we do whereas the republicans don't care about integrity and their leaders at all. We really care about integrity. I've seen people kind of have that reaction and it just makes me roll my eyes. What do you think about that. Yeah well that's i mean that's one thing on the left. Is that first of all. They're all they're always on offense. I think i think the right learned something from nothing that happens can never prove them wrong or ever. Give them a reason to apologize or to or to say. Oh we got that one wrong because these are the people that were hailing him as a hero identified themselves as cuomo sexual and And rather than saying oh we got as on that one. That's embarrassing they're saying. Oh no this proves how great we are. It's kind of like what the the the the olympic weightlifter the guy who Well you know you know. All about that olympic. Well yeah exactly and he. He flunks out of the olympics and the laughed. Rather than saying this embarrassing. They say oh this. This proves our case he didn't he didn't or rather she. They say she didn't succeed. So that proves that there's no problem here. The the right is making a big deal out of nothing so. They're always doing that and they do that. In this case But but of course i don't buy it at all. They're very selective about who they decided to hold accountable. And i guess the question why why was. Why did andrew cuomo draw the short six fires echoes. Maybe we'll never.

"It would no longer be a financial burden. She oh if you found a thousand other people with the exact same chance a thousand to one chance and each of those people paid insurance one thousand dollars worth of insurance in that insurance pot would be one million dollars thousand times. Thousand is a million. If one person had the child with down syndrome wishes what that pool should yield. That person would get the million dollars. And here's the thing as your risk increases so then you're you're an an a one and five hundred pull you have to put in two thousand dollars. Then you start thinking about your behavior in terms of the real risk and cost so the government. Is this massive insurance policy. But it's not fair you pay way more than you get out. It doesn't affect your behavior because they actually pay you to behave less. Well it's bad for you. When i had it life insurance and i was supposed to not smoke. They took a task than they were like. Oh you have nicotine in your system. Your your premiums are going to triple otherwise you had to cancel the policy for a year. And i never cheated again. I'm just saying the welfare state. Just a bad insurance policy and you can work around. You do the same thing with alzheimer's and everything else and then you think about your health a little harder when you realize how much it's gonna cost for you to get disability insurance to get you know health insurance and your old age. The idea that they're trying to make caregivers feel oppressed. That's the that's the way they always divide and conquer is a create the oppressed in the oppressors and to make people who are caring for their family feel like they're being oppressed by an ill family member. Somebody hasn't tried that that is that is terrible. That is they're taking the mental health issue. Like the leading thing of the story. Like all suffered. i just told you i had. I wasn't what the story it was about what it story said it was. It was mental health issues. They're all about mental health issues. Everything is and in fact. They're so good at the psychology of everything. I think they're so adapt understanding psychology. That they know damn well that they're promoting mental illness and actually have a story in the patron fifteen about that. Yeah i think we're going to get communist sooner than later. I think this is kind of leading into the mama. Kamla thing so this new study is out. That found something very interesting. Trust in science apparently is not what we thought it was.

The Suburban Women Problem
"kamla" Discussed on The Suburban Women Problem
"Just because of your accomplishments but just because you're showing me that this was even possible and she said not only that but you have a daughter who is watching you and her mindset will be very different than my mindset growing up. She said in her mind when she was growing up people that looked like her did not run for office. They weren't politicians whereas my daughter now will gladly tell you you know Loudly proclaim that she will be president. One day And in fact she was She'll now if kamla isn't the first female president than she will be the first female president. I hope we have a female president before my daughter turns thirty five million two But you know. I mean but this is something. That's like on her radar that is completely possible whereas my mom you know that was something that was completely impossible for someone like her to do. And so. I think that that's really important when we have representation but i also think that running for office is not the only thing that people can do to be involved and there's a lot of other ways that people can be involved rachel you mention helping someone else. Run for office in any capacity whether that's with your time your talent or your treasure and if you don't wanna help us specific candidate maybe there's specific cause that you're really into where you can join one of those grassroots organizations and really help affect change and whatever is really important to you so i don't want people to feel like running for office is like the only way no. There's many ways. I was like this suburban mom who worked a part time job at a kid store and then you know my life changed and i was offered lots of opportunities. This is what i decided to his. Podcast this is authentic to me. This is something i thought i could do. Justice to that you know was was going to be genuine. And i think that's really critical that you find something that you're interested in even if it's a little bit of a stretch if you can be yourself and you can lend your talents to it. That's that's a really good place to start is. I was actually thinking about this and reach. Always think about how you've said how people kind of attack you saying that you didn't get involved until affected your family. But underlying that is really the fact that a lot of political arguments. Don't talk about how it affects. Our families. And i think getting involved when it affects your family's is like the perfect time to get involved that attack. No that's actually really great right that let's start talking about how this is affecting our families like that is what women have. I feel like wanted to talk about all along. So i tend to be more involved when i know it affects me my family my friends my community and i don't think there's anything wrong with that and i think that is the strength of women you know finding how this affects families how this affects our communities and using that kind of disturb for our action so.

"Weekly extra. I'm joanie grieve in for jonathan freedland. One of the biggest decisions that then presidential candidate joe biden needed to make during the campaign last year was who he would pick to be his second in command. His vice president knows how to govern. She knows how to make the hard calls. Last summer. biden. Announced that kamla harris the california senator would be his running mate that i will support it still in her. Fifties harris represents a younger generation of leaders and picking the first black and south asian american woman to ever take such a role biding was hoping in part to appeal to a wider swath of the electorate but since taking the oath of office in january harris's rarely been in the spotlight. Save for drawing the ire of some democrats and all republicans who are not particularly happy with her response to two of the issues. She has been tasked with voting rights and the migrant crisis on the southern border. Be clear to folks in this region for thinking about making that dangerous trek.

Who don't know now. Leo is really important. It's standards for the national association of latino elected and appointed officials and again it's a very important organization within latinos and latinas and people who are engaged politically. Okay yes yes so a. And it's an important conference and this is the first time that a sitting president and a vice president have spoken at the conference which is incredible. And so you end browsing if you think about say like why okay. Twenty twenty one okay. So biden harris both talked about protecting voting rights.

Jonny Gould's Jewish State
Interview with Tuvia Tenenbom
"He's my absolute pleasure to welcome back to johnny gould's jewish state to via tenenbaum. Absolute pleasure to be with you again. You know you are a true free speech. Doyenne and for this particular podcast. I think it's the first thing verson ground rules as you can smoke. That's the first thing eight you're wanting to billion and the second thing is you truly opened my eyes to my own. I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued. I think from a lot of british people. And i think that's what you sean likes this book. Which is finally out in english. That's why it's called the tame taming of the ju. it's not just a take on shakespeare. It's the taming of the jewel. I mean giuseppe. Funding indicated biden. Own amazing to me edo deny or tolerate and sometimes joined together. Fox's would there accuse us we'd the hate us. That was shocking. I mean the fell. Shocking was citizen. This admit is imminent burden. I didn't expect it. I went to britain. Because i'm a tinto naomi's love english data. I said okay. My published opportunity mean sister. Go anywhere you want whatever you would like to go is i like to go to britain. I like to go. i like to see did out. I mean zane ought to do it better than anybody else. That's what i remember. And then the was black seed said. Okay i'll see you two belting stone which one stone i didn't expect anti-semitism and i didn't expect such a contaminating such a contagious. Such deepen. they semitism so deeply rooted. You know it on an island katelyn or in england which is the most important of course a bit of the uk but it was a frightening to sit and what is more fighting. Wants to see the basically. I'll kind of collaborating. Sometimes they had to fight jewish lead. Doesn't seem like law. Your people told me this and that your people told me i interviewed. People not told me are available. The life is a horrible thing so this is the common people and it took time. Tim's admitted but one that gate open has had them open and started talking. Honestly say to me you know. How many times have been told delta jew oh you know let us all kinds of dips and it's like amazing much so and little kits in manchester of hasidic. The auto talks kits in manchester and london will have had acts pelted them only storm so whatever it is i mean is a big addictiveness and we talked to jewish leaders saying even when the time used to say anything against wirelessly well owning two positions if to say one wowed against jimmy coleman only now's opt in the position you know as it became hewison you wayne saying that a one is easy allies. That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop. Who has who has three and a half million followers. He prostrate himself in front of ken loach on twitter. He said all this great interpreted it was as though he transferred the word. A jeremy corbyn for ken loach. I would kneel before him. And then if i couldn't anymore i prostrate myself in front of him which set off a huge torrent of jew hate and of course he a month ago on holocaust memorial day. Couldn't believe the terrible tragedies and then this is where the problems lie and that's an eye opener i think for british choosier surprising the anti-semites i mean disgust for britain and coastal are the places. You know that they took very nicely. Buddy dead jews in world war cho- you knows such nice people bubble and so bad and let's give some money to memorize them and and an make any fence you know maybe even endows of comments may be whatever it is making events you know in in a beautiful place to memorize their juice by the juice living was you know i mean it's like at all let's let you know what's album changes on the plane and of course the cord is a polish time. The code is is the stinian am am by itself. You know if you kill by the palestinians you know it doesn't mean that you don't like jews you know if you're critical officially doesn't mean that you're antisemites if you are cup only fizzle and if the only people who care about our justice palestinians because you killed by nobody else. Don't get about. Muslims in china while being tortured by million. Your don't care about syria. Don't care about libya you don't care about lebanon. You don't care about you. Don't even know what happens in yemen. Of course you never heralded by the war in chechnya and and distorted opening their head about anything. Only but it's going to stadiums you know is that there's a problem and they interesting thing when when i went into states and talk to the people and i tied to figure out. Why only this issue bottles you know. Other they show from people is back know underneath it. The other side was fight. Independence genius he. So did choose members alleys jews and a hall of people or some people would say something like you know what you will high. I don't know why feedbacks why feel about palestinians and i don't feel about anybody else. I have to think about it not over the palestinians up. You know it's like when. I wanted to start with like anyone to my my wife. Easy as you mentioned and i went to take a towards kamla sound everything and i'm gone to straight on that and i pick up young people young white folks as they call them. You know students.

Addison sister palestines and yet when you see slice cates looked like he must santana even studious and everything or well drafts. And the person free pop stein. And then he apologizes up.

The Young Turks
Senate Democrats move immediately to "Plan B" on minimum wage
"Yesterday we told you That the parliamentarian head ruled that the dollar minimum wage does not pass muster for reconciliation and must be taken out of a covid relief. Bill now We clarified unlike most of the media. That the parliamentary and actually has no power whatsoever It is just give an advisory opinion is not an actual ruling. The person who does the ruling is actually the presiding chair of the senate was normally is the vice president so comma. Harris is going to have a huge part in this conversation now wants the parliamentarian gave her so called ruling. All the democrats immediately gave up on fifteen dollars minimum wage as things stand now they are going to be taking that provision is going to be taken out of the bill and we will not get fifteen dollar minimum wage for at least four years now. There is a way to prevent it. There are four steps here. I'm going to walk through all four steps and you will see that if we do this. It's actually very doable. To keep it in the bill and to actually win on this issue but it requires courage from progressives and then Requires us to put public pressure on some of our allies and then eventually to the biden administration and sure so step one is unfortunately right now the most important step and where we're going to have to call out bernie sanders bernie sanders. Is the chair of the budget committee. The chair of the budget committee the signs. What is in the kobe. Relief bill bernie sanders. Current plan is to take fifteen dollars minimum wage out of the covid relief. Bill that is a terrible idea. He should not do that. If corporate democrats are going to vote against let them vote against it but doing it on their behalf. i cannot overstate. What a bad idea that is in that scenario that right now is what is going to happen unless we change it together bernie would kill the fifteen dollar minimum wage on behalf of joe manchin and joe by. He should not do that. So that's this is step one. I'm going to get to the other steps in a second guys. I need you to immediately participate. We've got a campaign we've got a partition and and we've got hashtags. We must do all of the above and the campaign is called. Don't kill it bernie because yes step one indisputably. It is a matter of fact. Is that the budget chair decides if it goes in the bill that is bernie sanders. That was the whole point of him being budget share. If he's going to take out. Fifteen dollar minimum wage will take out every provision the joe manchin and joe biden are opposed to that means we will get no progressive priorities past none. The fifteen dollars. Minimum wage was literally the bare minimum. It was the first ask of progressives so bernie. You've got to keep it in the bill because if he does not keep it in the bill. It's over that hashtag fight for fifteen. There is no more fight. That means progressive surrender. I'm being honest with you. Guys our job is to do the news. Those are the facts of how this process works so go to the petition. All right and here. Let's put it up for you guys and it's simply called. Don't kill it bernie. And what is saying is we don. T have a clear message. Don't take it out of the bill. It's one hundred percent your call on whether you keep it in the bill or take it out of the bill. Do not do that because if you take it out of the bill and you kill it then we will not be able to get back to it for four long years and there's no reason for it so and and if you're tweeting about this at all please use hashtag. Don't kill it bernie. Because we must get senator sanders to turn around. There are no other steps if he takes it out of the bill now if he keeps it in the bill now let me walk you through how we could actually win on this step two would be since it's in the bill. The presiding officer of the senate would have to rule to take it out of the bill. So kamala harris who in her role as the vp would normally be the presiding officer. The senate would have to actively vote with republicans or side with republicans the and the parliamentarian for what it's worth again. The parliamentarian has no vote. No power just gave a rando opinion on what they think they should do it. The republicans would never care about it. It it has no force of law at all. in fact it's being used as an excuse by kamla harris show schumer and the others to kill a provision. They were never in favor of so. Then we have to put pressure on comma harris to not side with mitch mcconnell. Can we do that. Yes yes we can definitely do that. If chuck schumer wants to protect com la- harris and he puts another senator in as the presiding officer. Will they will put pressure on chuck schumer. Would you like to continue to be the senator from new york. There are a lot of progressives in new york very very strong. Progressives in new york that could easily take that seat not easily but that could certainly have a shot at taking that seat. So now here's the most part steps three if she decides to take it out of the bill. There's nothing we can do about it comma harrison show schumer will then actively be saying okay. We killed the fifteen dollar minimum wage because we never wanted in the first place but if we get past that step and go. You win you win. We're keeping it in the bill. Then mitch. Mcconnell would object. Mitch mcconnell would then say. I want to appeal the ruling of the chair. Now here's a great news. Since joe manchin a cinema cap the filibuster and so two joe biden. They would need sixty votes to overrule the chair. So that means they need to break our filibuster to overrule the ruling of the chair. They're not gonna get sixty votes. We win okay. There is a separate more but understand before we go to step four step. Four is awesome but right now you understand how simple it is with. Depression brought to keep it in the bill. We have to pressure mention not mansion comma harris and chuck schumer to not side with republicans. Why god is a progressive movement. If we can't do that what can we do. Do we have any power or don't we have any power. Were about to find out. And then step for is if the republicans cannot break the filibuster. The mcconnell has one last option and this is wonderfully ironic. He would have to ask for fifty vote margin and straight up and down. Vote to kill the filibuster in regards to the votes of the presiding chair of the senate now mansion cinema have said that and biden said that the filibuster is the most precious thing in the world to them. So what are they going to. Now turn around just to make sure you don't get higher wages and they're gonna vote to kill the filibuster in this regard. I mean you would be the most spectacularly hypocritical thing they have ever done and they've done some pretty hypocritical fix so you put them in an near impossible situation and it is incredibly doable but step one is do not surrender. Guys one last thing before we go to john and jordan. There's ninety two billion dollars online. This would be a pay raise for about thirty million americans and to the tune of ninety two billion dollars every single year the reason why biden mansion and the republicans don't want to do it is because the chamber of commerce is dead set against it they are those business interests are giant donors to both the republican party and the democratic party. And those donors are saying. I wanna keep the ninety two billion dollars. I want to give it to my workers. I want to keep their wages incredibly low now go do my bidding. And they do now. Bernie is not in that camp. But he's getting pressure from the other democrats to take it out of the bill. We in a sense have to back them up by saying bernie. We do not agree. We do not agree. Don't kill it bernie. Don't kill it

Biden targets Trump's legacy with executive actions
"I'll be referring to joe in kamla as president and vice president more today than i said president trump ever and yes. That does seem biased. However like i said a while back. When i initially addressed in i call people by their title when they act like they're title trump never acted presidential felt like he deserved to be referred to as president. In fact. that's what i mean by. This show is more informal than regular news because even by using those titles you normalize trump. What trump did in what trump was. Were not normal. And we can't think that they were. They were awful disgraceful. And we can't ever let that happen again now under president biden and his busy. I two days in office yesterday evening. He signed fifteen executive orders in two executive actions. So what's the difference between executive orders and executive actions. Well an executive order is legally binding so it means more in executive action on the other. Hand is basically just symbolic. So let's go over those but be warned. I'm not always sure which ones are the orders. Which ones are the actions when you read about them. The news media treats them like they're interchangeable in. They're just not at all. There were about nine different categories of things that biden addressed. I in terms of masks. He signed an order requiring masks and social distancing in all federal buildings all federal property and by all federal employees and contractors and he even more masked ball signing the bill which sent to huge message other orders included stopping the united states from withdrawing from the world health organization which is a great thing for people worldwide extending a pause on student loan payments and housing foreclosures and actually even saw just now that they put student loan interest at zero percent.

Ep 128: Vice President Kamala Harris, Black Women and Leading with Charisse Jones, USA Today - burst 2
"Win senator. Kamala harris became madam vice. President elect comma harris the tortoise fear. The tiktok sphere the interwebs wit nuts. And there's a reason why she's our first black and female vice president elect an. She's first pacific asian islander. This is huge. What you say series. It is momentous and i think that when you talk about social media really good point to bring up is part of the reason that she got that appointment that she was picked by joe biden was black women coming together activists media personality saying we want a pay off our work right you know. We deserve to be in leadership. We're always doing the work of this political party and we want a black woman in that space and so you know her ascension represents not only her talent but all of the talents that came together from that movement to make sure that we were recognized in that way. And it culminates on this day. It's amazing because so much of what's going on in this political arena that led up to the elections and even there after because we had run off in georgia where black women played a huge role in moving the needle in some states. That weren't supposed to be blue. I think that's what's so interesting. Is that not only. Do you have kamla in the spotlight. Comma harris but stacey gabriel. Yes and all of those organizers who are getting that moment in the spotlight because it's so clear The role that we play at how deserved we are of recognition and being able to dispense power. And not just help other people attain it and so everything that happened after the presidential election. Has i think really made that clear as well absolutely. And you know the book. And i've shared it with you. Know thanks really centers on this other folks. I want you to understand that. What happens in the political sphere has everything to do with what happens in the corpus sphere. There is no separating it and you may say oh we don't talk politics at work that's not the point. It's the human dynamic and what we saw this political you know phenomenon that happened with joe biden choosing a black woman in response to kind of You know it was a large outcry from people that understand that time and time of gin black women have come to

No AAPI Cabinet Secretary!? (With Madalene Mielke)
"Madly milk. Welcome back to the motto. Majority podcast today. Thanks so much. Appreciate having a having having you have me. Yeah absolutely well. We love our previous conversation back in episode. One one to talking about your career your life story from the very beginning you know your political career dating back to al gore's presidential campaign. I believe so. I encourage everybody to listen to episode one until after this episode to get to know your personal story a little bit better but today we are going to focus on. You know some current topics. Niger say before we get into that. You are the president and ceo of the organization. Asian pacific american institute for congressional studies or apec. Could you give us a quick overview of the mission and the goal of this organization. You're leading which. I think actually is a good background and foundation for other stuff. We're gonna talk about later on in this interview. Well absolutely so apex down at twenty. Six years ago by former secretary norm annetta when he was a member of congress. He founded it alongside on the congressional asian pacific american caucus k. pack which comprise of the api members of the us house and senate and so apex mission is to increase a representation at all levels of government From community service to elected office and have them participate at all levels of the electoral process. Gotcha so it's interesting that you mention norman. Mineta who i think is one of the first cabinet secretaries of asia-american designed in our country. I don't know the first night check on that. The first right okay. So yeah. I think he was transportation secretary. He was actually commerce. Secretary and president clinton's administration got it and then went to transportation under the bush administration. Gotcha gotcha he has this. Unique history of serving the first cabinet secretary serving both administrations both parties administrations. And really i think started in important. I guess trend of representation that is about to end with the incoming biden administration. And we're talking about as we are a few days before job and becomes president to be inaugurated. This will be the first time in close more than twenty years that they will not be in asia. American or pacific islander as a cabinet secretary in an administration whether it's democrat or republican for the first time. And you as the leader of a pack which is a nonprofit has spoken out quite a bit about a lack of representation. Could you share with us. What is your view of what is about to happen with this. Lack of representation in the incoming administration sure dodge. Obviously we have an incoming vice president. Who is a pi asian american. She south asian descent black vice president-elect kamla harris and also to cabinet level positions. They don't head up an executive department of which there are fifteen. And that's catherine tie. Vr and near attendant. You know the to cabinet. Level positions obviously have a lot of influence and i will just use the word sides the congressional hispanic caucus and the congressional black caucus as well as k. Pack when they sent a joint letter over a hundred and fifteen members of congress to the by the administration saying close to equal equal. And so that is that those were their words and so And so you know. I cabinet secretary heads of an executive department. And there's only fifteen of them and so when you think about that fifteen how's that diversity including asian americans. It doesn't because there isn't one of the fifteen a. I applaud the administration for their work in trying to expand diversity in having openly. Lgbtq individual leading agency And native american woman of half of the cabinet will be women so all those great things. So if you wanted to find diversity and not include asians in the fifteen than i need to ask you. What is your definition of diversity. Because we seem we've seen this play out and other places where the state of washington. I think they're department of education. Basically categorized asian americans as white so obviously a different definition of diversity.

Monocle 24: The Briefing
Joe Bidens presidency
"And foremost happy new year to all our listeners. At the ever present risk of tempting fate it does feel like two thousand and twenty one can only be an improvement on two thousand and twenty one. Primary cause for optimism is the fact that after january twentieth earth's most powerful office will no longer be held by america's worst on imprisoned citizen description. Correct as of this broadcast between an untamed pandemic economic crisis and the spectacular mess made in general by president. Donald trump president elect joe biden faces a daunting oval office in trae won joint first of all by christchurch mcnichols news editor and by suzanne lynch washington dc correspondent with the irish times in this first part of the show. We'll look mostly at what president-elect joe biden wants to do and will do domestically but chris festival on that thought of succeeding donald trump. How much political capital does joe biden inherit just by virtue of not being donald trump. Well to be honest in some ways. That is a question that will be. I think more important end to discuss in the second half of our show. We look at foreign policy. Because i think that is where there is arguably a lot more political capital. You know joe biden will enter office of this month to lead a country that is still extraordinarily divided. It has to be said that whatever Court decisions were taken efforts to reverse. This election rejected by courts and by many academics. Who saw you know and others observers. Who saw no real evidence of fraud. It is important to point out. I think that potentially a majority of republicans are going to come into this year. Voters believing. Joe biden is illegitimate that that is not correct. That is not that is not what happened. But it is nevertheless a danger for democracy. And it's something that really i think is important to watch. Joe biden essentially has a tremendous amount of goodwill from half of the country who expects him to reverse many of the policies that donald trump implemented over the last four years and he will do a number of those from day one but we should not forget the other half of the country that will be causing a huge stink about all of this and it will be very interesting to watch how he tries to bridge those gaps particularly when it is such a strong divide as i say even in the sense of many just simply not even seeing him as their president suzanne to bring you in that division that chris delineates the is going to make extremely complicated one question. Joe biden will have to grapple with which is what does he do about donald trump. Does he as best he can. Just ignore him and hope he goes away or does he turn various congressional committees and the department of justice loose to try and get to the bottom wherever it may be of whatever. Wrongdoing was done. I don't think joe biden instinct will be to do that. I mean joe biden has presented himself very much as the kind of the nation's healer. He's talked about his own track record when he was in the senate for so many years of working across the aisle with republicans and working productively republicans. Now some might say that. Joe biden is suffering from naive radio. That washington has changed. That things have become much more polarized on they have in the last decade or so so he for example has has quietly hinted at his relationship with mitch. Mcconnell mitch. mcconnell is more more than likely going to be leading. i'm the two men have worked together. Particularly joe biden was vice president and mitch mcconnell in the senate and but even still you know. We saw mitch mcconnell reluctance to add call. Joe biden president-elect even though he had had won the election so that is a major at challenge for at for joe biden is going to be handling congress also. The problem facing him is democrats did very badly in november's election in terms of their seats. Both the senate and the house so not to pelosi now coming into a new year coming into a new congress with a much reduced majority and that is going to make things tricky for her. She's going to be tried keeper own party in check and i think a lot of the more left wing elements of the democratic party. Who basically were prepared to put away their differences with the establishment democratic party. If you like to try and defeat. Donald trump i now all gloves off and i think we're going to see this element of the party. The bernie sanders winged. Aoc wing. you know. Really kind of be vocal about what they believe. This joe biden presidency should deliver so i think you know that whole political reality of how washington is going to work with the mats in the house and the senate is going to be a constant challenge for joe biden other tries to govern. We'll chris let's look at the most pressing issues that will face president joe biden which is of course the covid nineteen pandemic now. Obviously there are grounds for optimism. Which is that a vaccine exists but it is going to take a while to get it to everybody. We are still months away from normality returning to the united states. Between now and then is there anything. The president biden will actually realistically be able to do to make an obviously already dreadful situation slightly less dreadful. Well i think he is going to try his damnedest to do that. he has set this or that that we all know now of Essentially a one hundred million doses of the vaccine in his first one hundred days disseminated to the public That's an ambitious goal. Although at the same time it it should be said that this was A goal if you will of the trump administration as well And this was. This was something that was planned. They had essentially bought one hundred million doses for the first quarter But the biggest challenge that we are going to see this In these first one hundred days is really going to be how that is disseminated. How is it gotten through to hospitals. you know and how states and local authorities cooperate with the federal government in order for that dissemination to take place how the army is potentially involved. It is a herculean task to get all of these vaccines out as quickly as joe biden has promised and i think it's going to be interesting because on the one hand you know he is as we you know he's he's still not president until january twentieth much of the work on this has been done by the trump administration At the same time there is you know there is this risk if you will or you could also put it in a positive way. There's an opportunity in that joe biden. I think will very quickly find that. This becomes his pandemic to deal with. And that he will be reckoned with in terms of how he is able to get certain programs underway. That means that his people his entire operation is really going to have to hit the ground running incredibly quickly when they take over in particular because they also have not gotten that much help that much cooperation from the trump administration in the transition. Suzanne joe biden has of course being in the white house during one previous dramatic intervention in the united states economy. When he and barrack obama arrived in the wake of the two thousand eight collapse will he be tempted towards something similar in the current circumstances or preceding more on the assumption that wants the vaccine is taking effect. The us economy will more or less sort itself out. Well it's it's a very good point. Under i mean i think there are lots of parallels here actually to what obama faced obama joe biden back into into a nine and you know even between the election on the inauguration i mean america. I'm particularly america then. The wider world was embroidered the biggest financial crisis in decades. And they have to deal with that. So yes there are a lot of parallels i think joe biden has a proven record on this and they were able to pass the tariff act. They did the the bailout fund for the auto industry hugely complex pieces of legislation. Where a lot of money involved. And that may well be the case. Again i mean the. Us economy at the figures december have been worrying. There has been worst. Jobless figures than had been expected am the signs of recovery. We saw in the late summer. You know really didn't continue as we kind of got into that second. Wave around thanksgiving time so i think the economic consequences. This you know are really not getting. Maybe enough attention here. Obviously so at the figures are overwhelming in terms of the deaths the infection rates and but there's also a huge impact on the economy. And i think we're going to see i. I believe around the world. It's it would probably accentuate this. You know the difference between the house and the have nots. If you like you know the poorer are are people who are have lost. Their jobs are in less secure. And yes we're seeing the stock market. Do very very well throw twenty twenty and a lot of people. You know hoarding cash. Essentially as saving. So these kind of issues i think are going to be front and foremost for joe biden particularly. I mentioned already because of this very strong left wing within his party. They want joe biden. Who who has been pivoting. More to the left economically i think for example compared to say a hillary clinton at the time you know four years ago and i think he has suggested you know with his pick johnny yet and his treasury secretary. She talked about for example. The need to address structural issues economic inequality along racial and gender lines in the united states describing how they are important for the economy to address that. So you know what he's going to do in terms of getting more covert relief. Package is going to be a key element of this first one hundred days in parallel to the huge logistical challenge of getting those vaccinations out trying to encourage people to get vaccinated etc and again. This is all going to depend on his relationship with congress and these are going to be. It's going to be a lot of money involved in this and Republicans in particular in the sandwich have been At loggerheads with democrats out late twenty twenty about the size and scope of a of any rescue package for the american economy and you know commentators ironic air pointing out the national dash went way up under trump a now are we going to start hearing republicans complaining about the national debt. So i think that whole aspect as i say in parallel to the the health issue is going to be a key concern for biden in the first few months presidency. Chris susanne mentioned there a couple of members of president-elect biden's domestic team we should talk about obviously the highest profile member of that domestic team which vice president-elect kamala harris do. You anticipate that she'll be a more visible and obviously engaged vice president than usual because it's going to be a very different relationship. Between her and president biden vice president biden had with president barrack. Obama perhaps ironically as things have turned out biden. wasn't really seen as a natural apprentice. successor To the much younger president he was he was running alongside whereas you already. Since there's a a feeling gathering kamla harris's president in waiting. Well i think To continue the two thousand two thousand nine parallels in in some ways. This is a sort of the reverse of that. As as you're discussing. Because i think when joe biden came into office as vice president he sort of provided the experienced the heft to the to the obama administration as the time as the sort of political establishment candidate for you know a relative neophyte in barack obama at the time and so his role You know he was. Obviously you also had before that dick. Cheney famously is maybe the vice president who really transformed the role but joe biden sort of ran with that and he was this You know incredibly powerful Very involved vice president as involved if not more involved than dick. Cheney was as vice president you know before that vice presidency often was seen as this very unimportant role and so i think in that sense perhaps looking now to kamala harris In some ways there's a reverse there because she is not the one providing the heft if you will joe biden is now even more experienced than he was back then so he will be the the fully experienced leader if you will in this campaign In this in this white house And so the question will be in that sense. What kind of room. He is willing to give kamala harris. What exactly she is going to put her stamp on In terms of us. And i think that's still a bit of an open debate. He obviously picked kamala harris because they have a good working relationship. She is somebody who was Arguably more of a centrist than some of the other candidates that he could have picked. You know she's not from the bernie sanders wing of the party. I think that was important because in wanted to pick somebody not only who was historic in terms of being a woman. I african american as well in the vice presidency But really somebody that he could have a good working relationship with in order to use her as both a trusted adviser and entrust her with leading on certain issues. So i think it will be very interesting to see how that relationship plays out and finally as you say as one point he obviously has not expressly said it but many would assume. There's a very good chance that joe biden will be a one term president and so in that sense. Yes this is. Come a harris's chance to really show that she is the one who will take up the mantle of being the leader of the democratic party of the future christchurch. Mac thank you for the moment.

Biden, Harris are Time's 2020 'Person of the Year'
"Go from here. That's the colossal question. Before president-elect joe biden who was named times person of the year along with vice president elect kamala harris. He's not the first person of the year to be tasked with the future of america. Almost every u s president since the franchise began in nineteen twenty. Eight has been named person of the year at least once excluding calvin coolidge. Herbert hoover and gerald ford but biden is likely the first in a generation to inherit such a crescendo of course trophies. A worsening pandemic that's brought a staggering loss of life widespread unemployment and an economic crisis a global climate crisis a reckoning over the continued pervasiveness of systemic racism and growing misinformation blurring fact and fiction during an interview with time editor in chief and ceo. Edward felsen thal at queens theatre in wilmington delaware. The president-elect discussed his partnership with harris the coming covid nineteen vaccine rollout. His thoughts on pardons and more here are excerpts. From biden's interview edited for clarity on restoring america's middle class if my plan is able to be implemented whole plan. I think it's going to go down as one of the most progressive administrations in american history. We've lost the idea that when ordinary people do well. Everybody does better. It's important that we focus on the things that provide opportunity pardoning donald trump. my justice department will make decisions based on the facts there. The people's lawyers. They're not my lawyers. I'm never going to pick up the phone. And say pardon so. And so or go out and prosecute so. And so. But i lived through gerald ford's pardoning of richard nixon. I think that the law and the circumstance should take its effect. I'm not suggesting. Trumpy prosecuted. Or not. But i would not be engaged in that prematurely. How the pandemic has changed him and us. What's been reinforced is my absolute commitment. That everyone is entitled to health care. It's not about whether or not it's a privilege it's a right. We're the only country in the world that has come out of every crisis stronger than we went into the crisis. I predict we will come out of this crisis stronger than when we went in finding vaccine. Hesitancy the words of a president matter. Whether they're good. Presidents are bad. They matter i joined the three presidents who said they would be publicly vaccinated because i think people will realize that we have to reinstate confidence that science is real if someone with the reputation of anthony fauci and the leading scientists of the country said this vaccine works they should take choosing kamala harris. She is straight as an arrow. She is really really bright. She is tough but yet she has a heart. That understands what it's like to be on the other side of prejudice. She also was an immigrant's daughter who was raised in a strange way like i was. We were taught that we could be anything. Don't give up just move. Keep pushing. And i just found her to be someone who. If in fact something happened to me i knew they could take over. That's kamla

Julin Castro, a 2020 presidential contender, on why Joe Biden beat him and Trump
"Secretary hulan castro. Thank you very much for coming on the podcast with you before we get to the topic that we are here to talk about what i wanted to talk about. You want to talk about. And that is the latino vote in twenty twenty. We gotta talk about the biden transition and what you're in for. Do you wanna go back into a presidential administration. But that's his decision. Of course it's his decision. Yeah but. I've said that i'm open to that. I haven't taken anything off the table. Have anything on the table. I haven't had any conversations with the transition team with with the president-elect about that. But the thing that i do know and i can tell already from the names that have been put out there for different positions. Is that the team. He's assembling spectacular one. And it's going to be so much more competent effective than what we've seen over the last four years it goes without saying you know for years ago. Donald trump promised everybody that he would surround himself with the best people and then couldn't be that could have been further from the truth. Joe biden is actually surrounding himself with some of this people out there. Whether it's the folks were up for treasury or a g or any number physicians. And so whether i'm part of that or not what. I have confidence in what matters most to people is that these are going to be very competent. Effective folks okay. I'm going to continue to put you on the spot. And in president obama's administration in the second term you were the secretary of housing and urban development. So let's just take that off the table. When i go back to to where you were before dream job dream scenario. Just forget that. Joe biden kamla. Harris are gonna be the next president vice president of the united states. What would be the dream job. In a presidential administration. I was running for president. Of course they make good people. I would do hampshire saw otherwise and rightly so in twenty. But yeah i mean. I'm going to leave all of those conversations to the transition team. That's uniquely decision. And so i feel like i'm going to continue to use my voice in any way that i can on the issues and the vision that i pressed forward in the presidential campaign. A lot of that vision is shared. I think with adults Biden and vice president-elect terrorists but was find a way to serve anyway. I can't even if it's only in according break candidates for office up down the ballot which i was happy to do in twenty twenty so transportation there Yeah there any of those roles for people that are interested in public service or great role all right and then i was only pressing on labor and transportation. And you didn't give me a chance to keep going down the list. Because i mean let's not forget. Therefore you ran for president. Before secretary of housing and urban development. You were a mayor. Yeah yeah you were the mayor of san antonio. So it's not. It's not out of the realm of the possible that those two agencies would be something of interest may be an ambassadorship. The world food program in rome. I mean there are lots of things but we'll just leave that alone. We'll leave it alone. I feel like that. This is an exciting time for a lot of people that want to surge. And we'll see what happens. I love pressing. You folks who are you know on the precipice of possibly joining the cabinet tried to watch you squirm but let's talk about something that you actually can talk about and want to talk about. And that is the latino. Vote in the twenty twenty election as i said before. I am fascinated by what happened. Talked to me from your perspective about what happened in the twenty twenty election. These the latino vote. Well overall the a latino vote was still a very important and impactful part of the democrat coalition and you could see that most notably in wins in arizona nevada. You did a community like georgia. You know where. There's been a growing latino community over the last decade or so so overall. Very positive the turnout. Rate among latinos was higher than it was in two thousand sixteen like it was for all other hurricanes so that was very positive. Obviously you also had some of these areas of the country where democrats did performed as well as i would have wanted them to or anybody would have wanted to. That was ruining for joe biden and democrats. I think of miami dade county for instance in florida. Yeah so let's go through each area so in miami dade county in florida. What were the dynamics. There that made the turn out on behalf of joe biden. Not what democrats hoped. it would be. Well you probably heard this term monolithic right more in the last two or three weeks two weeks since the election having last year
