"Mean. I think that's really exciting. Part that as i've met more designers i've met more design educators and i've been trying to kind of navigate within my own practice what the importance of flank. A book like this can be. There's so much power and it's such a privilege to be able to do so and learning even how to do this process and learning what it means to kind of work with the publisher and like all of that sometimes unknown inaccessible out of reach sort of opportunities. And i think that like. It's so important that as i as we learn. Oh is this how it works. How we sharing that back out to the folks that we might be working with that may not know as much about that process and so i think to contribute to the design field in honor. It's it's a privilege. I'm excited to do so and and i'm also really just thankful for everyone in the book because i mean to be open and share. Their stories is also can be a very vulnerable position to put yourself in. And i'm mindful of protecting their stories and making sure that they feel like they're best represented and and so i am so just thankful for their contributions and participating because it wouldn't have come together without their stories now. You are an artist. You're a designer. You're an educator and academia. How do you balance all like do you find that they're i. It's at opposition that times. Like how do you make it all work. You see it as like a kind of rotating hats. I think sometimes the focus is on one thing more than the other during the year teaching fall and spring semesters really sort of primary focus and then sometimes in the summer. What's really nice is. There's a bit more time to work on like more self driven projects or or other kind of commissioned works and things like that commission work happens. I think like year round so it happens even as i'm teaching and collaborations with different people as well and so..

"And because there's for me there's multiple avenues of my practice and things that i'm exploring right. The research that i was talking about is one avenue. Another avenue of my kind of design practices like collaborating and connecting with other design educators or designers of color and this particular book. That's coming out. Features twelve interviews one of which includes myself with design educators from across the united states and canada and it features just kind of an interview of our experience getting into design navigating private and public university and college settings and what it means to now be teaching in the environment that we are and so i'm super excited about this book coming out and at the end of the month actually on march thirtieth just because it's the first time that i've had a public a really really public projects. I think this that is being published at the scale. And so i'm excited and and all the things in between us. Well that's amazing. Congratulations on the book. Thank you what do you hope people get out of this. I think what i hope. The most is that folks like myself. Emerging designers emerging students in design concede themselves in this book. I think we're only a sampling. We're not everyone and we can only sort of share our perspectives from you. Know our own background. Sin what we have accomplished done. But i think that might ultimate hope is for there to be visibility and to to see it as a to see it as like if you're interested in teaching or interested in design and you're a person of color specifically your black brown at necks. You know it's just a sampling of a folks who are doing it and working through their own design practice in navigating challenges that are coming up and also to validate any other educators who are experiencing similar challenges or successes and to recognize that like we are a bigger community than we realize. We're only a step away from each other in some way..

"In some way like i think the music influences that i've had and i think about sort of as if i were a dj right like water. The remix is in the sampling's that i can do from these different eras from these different visual graphics and how you reassemble them where they can. Maybe speak to someone who like my parents like grew up with those films but it also the visual in the typographic play. Potentially speak to someone right now. Who's an emerging designer and maybe not has ever seen that film or series of films. So i think it's it's a it's i like the idea of remix and juxtaposition and now as we sort of delve into that more. Which is you know you're research focus as it says in your bio you focus on. How socio political frameworks and shifting technology influence the sound symbols and styles of black cultural vernacular in mainstream media which sounds like a mouthful. What sort of research is happening right now on black visual culture like you talk about some of the other work that you're doing or maybe something that you've seen from peers. Anything like that. The thing that i'm finding really kind of interesting right now. Is that like a few years ago. I was just reading articles about digital black face and you know the circulation of memes and gifts and things like that on a social channel like instagram or facebook or twitter and i was drawn to kind of standing. What does it mean to have something. That's digital black face. And what is black face. And i think i was going down a path like in terms of research of just trying to understand more historically. About how black face has you know. Surface in the united states in its history in its lineage has been and i think there's so much kind of visual content today that has a connection to that lineage. We don't always know what it is or it's been suppressed in various ways where it's not been analyzed and talked about in the context of of graphic design but it's analyzed and talked about and many other disciplines whether it's media studies or afrikaner studies like things like that. I think that there's so much scholarship that's been generated around like images and understanding the root of those images and so so anyway for me as a designer. that's working with type image often. i just wanted to have a better understanding of that history. And i began to kind of do research around music publishing and like early music publishing and for me was trying to trace the lineage between like music album cover to that early music she cover and forms that have surfaced in between and so. I think that it's been a lot about excavation in trying to see what i can find and using digital collections to to see what what's available and look closely at who was publishing various works. If there's like information about the artists sometimes the artist's name is embedded on the illustrations of those early works. And so it's just been for me right now. Navigating a lot of that historical information. And i think what i begin to do with that is again. The remix part is like wanting to look closely at the typography these become like typographic specimens. And i think what's what's really loaded in charged about doing that. It's like the time is really charged. And so i'm trying to be mindful of what does it mean for my own position to be working on top of these works or fragmenting or or cropping in particular ways. What do i find sacred. What can i touch. What is uncomfortable for me in creating a collage or a remix. If you will. And i think that i struggle and tangle with all of those things i think in the creation of work that responds to that research and now you're also coming out with a book soon right. Is this the culmination of this research. So no the book that's coming out is called black brown and latin next design educators conversations on designing race..

"I think to me now as you sort of you know started bright polka dot and then even as you're of navigating the postgraduate world. How did bright polka-dot change like. Did you sort of started off in one way. And it shifted into something else. I think what's interesting for me with navigating wanting to work with different design studios and different agencies and again trying to figure out how to mesh more corporate work that has nothing to do with me versus projects that are kind of self driven and are interested in various topics racine's in the very beginning. My portfolio on my website would reflect a lot of work. That wasn't necessarily from me but might be client oriented. That was no. It was just really corporate in a lot of ways. And i wasn't sure what what i needed to have up there to get a job to look a certain way. I think i was very conscious of wanting to put work. That looks like a thing would impress someone else gas. I've gotten older and you know as my projects have changed in what important values are important to me at this point. What was more important was having a blend of projects that i was excited about. That were really connected to me to communities that. I'm a part of that could really just push forth topics. Conversations have a critical point of view. And i think that that's what kind of shifted in the last. Several years as my portfolio has continued to change in projects that i've done are kind of like a discussing. Larger grander topics tonight had previously. Let's talk about some of the projects that you've done through bright polka dots. One of them that i saw. I think it was think was one that i saw right off. The bat was a an forgive me. I'm to begin. This god is a black woman. I believe is what it was titled. Yeah so the black woman has got. The black woman has gone. Thank you yes that one the curator's for the exhibition were moore green and karen santa farrow.

"Like prepare to worked as a designer when i graduated. I think it was really. I felt like bereft of the academic environment in some way. Because my thesis project doesn't undergrad was called black and i was investigating my identity. Like who i am what i wanted to say like i was saying before and the design work was like very it might even be like if we were kind of situated almost kind of like as a contemporary artists right so i was making work in a way that like what i was concerned about was how it was going to be perceived in a more corporate context and how i could apply for jobs with mike thesis saying black. Very visibly on it. I think i was just trying to. When i finished getting out of school like i was trying to figure out what my design community would be. You know and it was a very different time. You know we have all these different like digital spaces slack spaces where people are convening in connecting in meeting. Each other yeah. I don't think that i knew what it meant to have. A community didn't know. What kind of design. I really wanted to do or go in. So i was like a freelancer for like the first year or so out of school where i was kind of navigating through job boards in finding places to do smaller freelance gig projects with it was also in that time that one of my former professor had reached out about doing like a teaching in a class at the university of bridgeport. And so i was really. Can i teach like. Can i do this and i think her reaching out. And you know because my mom is a teacher like connecting with her was really kind of support they were really supportive figuring out the thing or not figuring out but helping me figure out how i could sort of begin to teach this collegiate environment because i started in that way was like freelancing. I was teaching. I started out with a hybrid practice. And i feel like i've kind of maintain that ever since in some way where there was like a kind of a triad of working in industry teaching and having also a research practice that may not necessarily be for clients at the same time Now is this kind of the beginnings of bright polkadot. He and i mean actually fright. Polka dot was born out of a web design class that i had in college because we were all asked to like create portfolio sites. And my name is so common that there's like hundreds of people that have my name. Kelly walters so i was trying to come up with these different permutations of kelly. A walters kellyanne walters. I was just trying different versions of things. And i didn't like the other options that were left like busy dot net so i was like well. Maybe i'll just go in a very different direction. And just kind of think. About like a moniker. If you will like many of the fabrics patterns that i always sort of gravitate towards our polka dots and so i was really interested in this idea like polka dot. And then i was also interested in adding bright to it also metaphor for myself but also just kind of like a lively edition to polka-dot i guess and so i went with it and there's a very particular pattern that i used for one of my designed books that is kind of also the very specific inspiration. I i don't know where it is somewhere in my apartment somewhere but that became like mine. My website name and i've kept it ever since and i i know it just it felt right..

"And i think on one hand i was really sort of just trying to find myself as an undergrad and navigate. This really rural environment. I was coming out of more of a city suburb. Backdrop previously just growing up so storrs connecticut was really rural. And so for me. There is also this kind of tension of navigating being in sort of isolated space and it also being really predominantly white and feeling like i was missing. I think towards the end. As i was about to graduate i was ready to move to a more eclectic more sort of diverse space. But i think as my time evolved while i was there. It took me time to figure out who. I wasn't what i was saying. What i wanted to say by the end. I was like okay. I'm ready to go elsewhere or try something new but i think you know it had its challenges. I think that i was. I think one of very few black students in the art program luckily the year that i went through. I think we have in graphic design. I think there were like three of us. That were kind of in the program together. And i think the other kind of interesting thing about uconn is that it's known for basketball and science right so like those are giant components of the campus culture and like everyone kind of fawning around all the basketball players or science in research were like really dominant focuses of the kinda campus. As i look back. I was just learning how to become who i am in some way and navigating again what i needed to do next when you graduated. Did you feel like you're prepared for the.

"Always did band in was definitely a music in band person. But i think what happened was that you had to choose right. I think for middle school and high school in particular. You can only do one. Art or art focused disciplined mess. Part of your kind of credit sequence in. I chose marching band. And i chose ban and would always be a lot of the music classes but because of that i only got to take like a one art class at the end of high school. Which was like a graphic design class so i think i was exposed to me or creative environments but not really knowing what to do with it or just thinking that it might be a hobby. I think through middle school and high school thinking that could be a hobby not necessarily as a profession but at the same time there was one other project that i didn't eighth grade where i think i wrote a way to pixar and and like pixar sent me back like a folder of all of these inserts from all the different animated film sin toy story bugs life and all this stuff again. I think there were things that happened. But i didn't connect the dots. I think at that time that i was interested in some kind of computer. Animation or computer generated imagery kind of thing but not knowing exactly what to do with it the southern interested in that too. You mentioned there about how kind of an elementary school there were. All of these sort of difference arts and music and kind of. I know you were exposed to a lot of it and it hadn't even thinking about when i was a kid. We had school plays. We had of course like music classes with recorders and like the little phone blondes. And all that sort of stuff and it was always just of presented as options. Not necessarily like. Oh if you stick with this you could be a musician but more soldiers showing you that this is kind of out there like it's an option and of course as you go through your education you go from elementary school..

"Teaching is a way of like relearning tools or techniques or methods that i'm using in my own practice and so like when i'm talking with students so we're talking about projects or conceptualizing about something or trying to figure out how to make something i think i feel like i'm sort of like a co facilitator of Collaborator and that where we can talk through strategy. We can talk through approach. And i think it's so important to my practice because you know through those discussions in my ability to kind of think through. How do i deliver this material to two students. How do we discuss xyz. Or think through these things. I see my own self like being able to kind of like in my practice. Reflect on even those lessons or conversations that i've had with with students. And i think like they inform each other and i think my design practice with things that are happening outside of the classroom. You know those experiences working with clients working with other artists and designers for me. Those are like are examples that i can draw upon to of bring into the class about like this is how i did. Xyz with with whoever it lends a bit of credibility to it as well. Because it's not like. I'm just like making stuff up speaking from the various experiences that i've had i think it's helpful to draw upon his lessons in the classroom space. It's interesting because i'm sure that you know like you say is the students are informing. You as you as. You're going through all of this. I wonder though if it was maybe easier. Because now you're teaching over kind of an entirely visual medium teaching over the web you can use zoom. It can point to youtube videos. But i don't know have you found that it's been a little easier in some. Yeah in some ways it is. Because like i can literally were like the only thing that's between us is the screen and mike what. I've really loved about this..

"Like these like small actions to make it feel like you're in a different space. Sometimes so i think that that's what my that's what my days like more and more now of just like what are the subtleties that i can adjust in my home environment to you know feel like i'm in a different space. I guess has there been sort of a change in how you've been teaching or anything like that. Uh yeah definitely i think. Now it'll be a full year of teaching remotely online. And i think that for my program in the communication design program at parsons i think we had transitioned to an online teaching format and i think what was really challenging in the beginning with like trying to figure out what does it mean to do a critique in this environment what does it mean to build up student report and morale and all of those in community or around like students that you are working with that previously. You were seeing physically in a particular space. And i think the difference between kind of what i've learned in that kind of crisis moving in a somewhat of a crisis mode to teach remotely versus starting the year teaching remotely just like i've been working with students all year that i probably won't ever get to meet in person. And so there's this difference in trying to figure out how to get to know someone as much as one can an online format through smaller group conversations or having slack channels or things where people can sort of commune in a digital sphere. But it's definitely been different than previous years and now has parsons kind of been accepting of all of this and all these changes that have been going on. Yeah i mean. I think every program is is navigating this in its own way. I think that like including ours. We have like tools and supplies in things that we are wanting our students to use for all various projects but with students kind of navigated across the world really makes it difficult for them to be able to have access to that..

I make a bunch of different things print and digital and everything in between nice. How are you feeling so far about twenty twenty one. Twenty twenty one you know. I was really curious to see how the inauguration was actually going to play out at the end of december just anxious about all the various things that have been happening and i think the beginning of twenty twenty one felt really rocky just for me in trying to understand like how the end of one presidency the beginning of a next the middle of a pandemic and sort of just a lot of uncertainty so it felt a little overwhelming. I think but it feels like it's getting potentially better as best as better can be yes. I don't know if that's a thing. But yeah i mean i can certainly see how it sort of feels a bit like. We're starting to see the light at the end of this long pandemic size tunnel so i know what you mean especially that we have new leadership. There's vaccines that are out there. People are getting vaccinated. It feels like things are starting to go into a different direction Yeah i just. I feel like i. I'm just anxious for everyone and making sure that we can safely make it through the second year. I guess of this like new world that we're in and i'm also really curious to see kind of patterns or observations are made in this time that will affect us longer than this time. I guess longer than the year in change it's been. I'm really curious to see what it looks like. And like being able to reflect back maybe even in ten years or five years like what i remember of this era. So i don't know like reflexive i think in that way like looking forward and back if i can at the same time as funny. That's that's kind of january. Is after the the greek i think. Greek god or demi-god janice has one face looking for one face looking back so that's kind of apt comparison. There are things different for you now than they were last year. Trying to think at this point last year we were. Maybe like a week out before everything shut down. If i recall. I think the last time i was in new york was like march eleventh. When we were told like two days later everyone had to sort of stay at home. And i think like things were more sort of uncertain in some ways at the very beginning of that last year as i reflect on where i am now. I don't know. I feel like they're still unknowns. But i'm i'm living to sit inside of the uncertainty. It's very uncomfortable to do that. But i i don't know i think more than last year i feel like this year. You have to sit with the uncertainty in a way that i don't know i don't know how to really describe that exactly. I just feel like i'm navigating what it means to not know even more than before and not take for granted what was thought to be stable or when was thought to be certain. If that makes sense yeah. So what is a regular day like for you now. What my home is my office is. My classroom is my social space. So you know it's it's the all purpose room for many things. I think it was. I think it was weird to navigate that last year of like finding what the delineation is between all of those kind of spaces. But i think depending on who you're talking to in meetings whether it's co workers or your friends or your family kind of figuring out a way to feel as though at your own environment home environment that in a separate area or Time of the day that it can feel as though you can feel the shifts in it. sometimes it's about just getting up and walking outside and coming back and feeling like you've gone into a new room or changing the lighting or opening the blinds or turning on the light.

And i think that for my program in the communication design program at parsons i think we had transitioned to an online teaching format and i think what was really challenging in the beginning with like trying to figure out what does it mean to do a critique in this environment what does it mean to build up student report and morale and all of those in community or around like students that you are working with that previously. You were seeing physically in a particular space. And i think the difference between kind of what i've learned in that kind of crisis moving in a somewhat of a crisis mode to teach remotely versus starting the year teaching remotely just like i've been working with students all year that i probably won't ever get to meet in person. And so there's this difference in trying to figure out how to get to know someone as much as one can an online format through smaller group conversations or having slack channels or things where people can sort of commune in a digital sphere. But it's definitely been different than previous years

How are you feeling so far about twenty twenty one. Twenty twenty one you know. I was really curious to see how the inauguration was actually going to play out at the end of december just anxious about all the various things that have been happening and i think the beginning of twenty twenty one felt really rocky just for me in trying to understand like how the end of one presidency the beginning of a next the middle of a pandemic and sort of just a lot of uncertainty so it felt a little overwhelming. I think but it feels like it's getting potentially better as best as better can be yes. I don't know if that's a thing. But yeah i mean i can certainly see how it sort of feels a bit like. We're starting to see the light at the end of this long pandemic size tunnel so i know what you mean especially that we have new leadership. There's vaccines that are out there. People are getting vaccinated. It feels like things are starting to go into a different direction Yeah i just. I feel like i. I'm just anxious for everyone and making sure that we can safely make it through the second year. I guess of this like new world that we're in and i'm also really curious to see kind of patterns or observations are made in this time that will affect us longer than this time. I guess longer than the year in change it's been. I'm really curious to see what it looks like. And like being able to reflect back maybe even in ten years or five years like what i remember of this era..

"Looking at how we look at black culture so there's like an aim on an to be doing this research partially because i was not aware of this research and so many people need to be but then at the same time what is my responsibility. As an artist isn't maker to also be presenting images that offer the beauty in the positivity that comes out of being either a black person of black culture. kelly walters sounder. Bright polkadot a multidisciplinary design studio and art practice. He's also an assistant. Professor of communications. Design at parsons school of design kelly. Welcome to the podcast. I thank you for having me. I want to start by asking you about something. I saw on your instagram feed. Recently you wrote the way you make is intertwined with who you are. And i loved the statement but i also loved your comment about it in the Column next to the statement in which you said and this is my question you said. It all started with middle school powerpoint presentations. Is that how you got. Your start did you. Did you know looking at powerpoint as someone who was that young that there were better fonts and better futures ahead. I think so i mean. I think that it's funny. You know when. I look back now. I definitely had an interest in type. I didn't know really the it would be considered graphic design But i knew that i was that person loves making power points for the group projects that we had and i think word are was the little pop up box that you could like experiment with like different typographic characteristics. And so i love that. And i loved putting together the The trifled boards for like science. Spare presentations i was. I was doing the same thing. I would use word to my utmost capacity to create typographic. Headers but i didn't. I didn't really see it as design. I just knew that. I loved working with type at that point and so as i got into high school i didn't. I don't think. I really took an art class until either my junior senior year because i didn't have space for it. I took bands. I was a music person So i never really got into our like in that kind of way or seeing it in that way until like the later part of high school. So if i'm reading your bio correctly since were going through your life a lot of change when you got to the university of connecticut Communication and communication design. Maybe we should start with your undergraduate thesis. So you con. I definitely was a double major in Communication sciences which was in the liberal arts program and then communication and design Which was in the regular sort of art history department and i was grappling with at that time. Just trying to understand who i was. This is a black woman as someone at a predominantly white institution and my thesis Senior year was called black. And i created a series of books that were responding to either stereotypes. One book was like as many words. As i could find that have been used to call a black person in the united states and everything was printed on black paper and balanced and sat on a black table that i built says well and yeah it was. I think the first time that i realized i was kind of crossing a little bit of this. Kind of design meets contemporary art space. a really liked you know. Creating experiences for people to engage with language university of connecticut was on my shortlist. When i was looking for colleges and i thought long and hard about the disadvantages and advantages of being an a place. That's that's close to rural communities. It's far away. That's cut off as an school and they had good ice cream. But i worried worried. I worried about feeling That isolated at such a tender time and it sounds like that's part of what bubbled up for you. Yeah i mean. I think that when i was applying for schools i you know i have family members who were really adamant about like making sure that we like for my brothers and i that if we were applying for school to consider applying. Hpc's and so. I have great aunts that went to skiing university or howard university so there was a threat of it. That was always there. But i think that you know growing up in connecticut. I really wasn't sure how far away to go. And then i think the other thing that was a draw oddly enough as they look back that i did marching band so i was in marching band the entire time i was at uconn you know and they had a really big marching band and and i think that like the ability to sort of jump into a community that was sort of familiar and i think through growing up i think being at uconn i realized the things that i needed or was missing. Think after leaving. i think that's why. I traveled all over the place for the next few years. Just trying to continue to expand and grow beyond kind of being in connecticut but at some point in this journey as a maker you became interested in media depictions and historical depictions and this became a whole new part of your work. That really interests me. Because i think it also speaks to your curiosity as a historian is a cultural historian of the space that you're in having a maker. Could you talk about how that came to be what was the. What was it that got. You started on looking at media depictions of black culture. Yeah so i think from around the time of grad school. I was experimenting with a lot of things right. And i think that what was happening was that i was looking always. It seems that images of black individuals in the spaces. That were hyper visible. And i was just trying to test visual vernaculars. But i didn't dive. As deep as i probably have been until last few years where you know i was revisiting. That work and trying to navigate. Had i already done all that. I could write. Had i already figured out all that i needed to and there was a few articles that had come out in the news. I think one was about like digital black face in digital media fixation and i was really inspired by that because i was looking at a lot of like images from television and film and trying to make sense of them through design work that i was creating but i felt like i was replicating. What already exists in wasn't creating anything new. And so i think at that point i had to pivot and really do a deeper dive into understanding more around the historical context of certain stereotypes and how they came to be and i think a lot of most recent work that had been doing has been trying to kind of navigate and track.

"To stop doing that. Well, the free market is spoken. Sales in the last three months. Addicts have dropped significantly revenue dip four and a half percent. Four and a half percent. No, I'm not rooting for places to go out of business. I'm not rooting for people have jobs. But this is what happens. I mean, all of a sudden Dixie you don't because some idiot on Twitter put something about Dick's sporting goods selling guns while he bought it. It's gonna Dick's. Well, he must be responsible. Then right. Then are we going to just start next time is a car accident? Are we going to find out where the person bought the vehicle, and then just go try to destroy that car dealership on social media? I mean, it's just dumb. So people have said I've had it with you. And I know a lot of people that have said, I'm not gonna Dick's anymore. They got mad. The CEO of Dick's sporting goods Edward stack said that the rue firearms policy brought in new customers. You said that. Yep. Our new policy brought a new customer sales were flat in August is now warned that the negative reaction could affect future results. You think? But they're going to stick with it. They're sticking with it. There. Apparently investing in new brick and mortar stores they're opening up. Six more. They still they sell things online. But people have said they're going to buy they're going to buy plays, the sporting goods other places. People have had it and it said again companies would just just stop. And if they would just fight back a little bit and to fight fightback just defend yourself speak up for yourself. That's all you have to do. And they go full wuss on things. I mean, it's incredible. They could also simply just ignore it. That's what a lot of places. Do. Look we outed Tucson unified school district for letting teacher work in a hostile work environment. Did that a couple of weeks ago? Guys, getting threatened by students is I'm gonna have my stepdad coming and he's gonna kick your butt teachers looking over shoulder all the time. He's a, you know, maybe the kids gonna bring in a weapon he's he's a troubled kid this kid. We talked about it on this show is a very powerful show here in southern Arizona and Oliver Arizona, and you know, what to USD did nothing. Nothing. What happens? They could ignore it. But for some reason, these guys all of a sudden the run companies feel like they have to make some kind of. They think it's like a positive community outreach situation or something like that. And it just it turns into it turns into garbage so Dixon's hurting, and they're hurting bigly. And that's and that's just fine. Now, really quick those those migrants. Launching a hunger strike. Not many. Reuters says a handful of the migrants that are out there in Tijuana. They want asylum so badly there's so mad. The police are blocking them from doing whatever it's taking for a long time. So a handful of them have apparently said we are going to not eat until we can actually get our way. Really? We're not gonna eat by the way, the Tijuana mayor has come out, and he has blamed that open borders group of people without borders published fund safe frontiers. Whatever the hell it is. He is blamed them. Anyway, there's a group also starting a three day hunger strike. Gersten Madrid at twenty to twenty two year old Honduran. Started the trek you ready for this Star Trek. And it's right there. Sorry to stay. He joined the caravan to better provide for a young daughter. He left behind. He's not leaving. Because there's gang violence. He's not he's leaving because he wants to get money, and he wants to take the money making America suck it out of our economy and funnel it down. It's never seen again to his home country of Honduras. Just because he can't get a job in your country is not grounds for asylum. Oh, I wonder if college students actually understand that I wonder if they believe Goodrich. Let me ask you because you know, listen, I understand I think no shut your mouth. I understand college. When I talked to you I understand in college because I've been there it's largely a waste of time. It really is. Do you think a lot of college students, did, you know, this that you can actually claim asylum because he just can't find a job? Like, if you want to get richer, you can't just go to our border go I'm wanting asylum because I want to get a job, do, you know? That's not granted. Did you know that we're now? Yeah. And be perfectly honest. I'd be know that. Yes. You knew that already. So you knew that I'm shocked my dowdy. Do you think your fellow college students actually know that? No. They don't do. How do they know that this? Smart. No. Yeah. There was just a. Are you millennial do you for that category? No. There was a new study said millennials think that Obama was more important to this country than George Washington. Not smart. Well, glad look you're giving me hope. So you know this. That's what he will. I hang out with the ones that you hang out with. Yes. I've seen your shady characters. You're shady group that you hang out with with anything like the people you hang out with your radio station. There's some issues. Okay. Good good for you. So I like, I there are a lot of people that actually think that it's okay, they just want better life, and it's not just young people, by the way, you have dopey. Geraldo Rivera, Jerry, rivers going on FOX. They are just nice people innocent. They're coming here for a better life doesn't mean you should be let in so. Anyway, this Missa Gershon Madrid said he is starting a three day hunger strike to draw attention to the standoff quote. Why are the police treating us like this? If we're not causing number the Mexican people any trouble. What? Mexican police. Stop more than a dozen migrants. From the caravan approaching apparently a border-crossing, why are they stopping us? It's their country. They can do they want you crossed illegally. So they're going to try to start a hunger strike, a hunger strike, and are they going to do it? And what does that even mean? Maybe it'll be okay. Because there's only thirty-five toilets for six thousand people, and they're all getting sick. Are you sick right now too? I'd say they wanted to come in. 'cause I'm sick. I didn't do that. No. You said this come in. I did. Yes. When was this on Monday the longtime ago? Now, are you taking more are you taking more medicine now because I'm feeling better now? But okay, good. I'm glad all right. Well, good. I'm glad Michael by the way, I will publicly praise you for going through your your medical situation that you did and working as hard as you have to come back. This is the only time I'm going to be nice. There you go six fifty coming up by the way in in just in just five minutes. You got to hear the montage of the media acting as if no I said, we'll do it at seven ten tonight. We'll do it at seven ten the media montage as if as if Trump is actually going down and going down league going down huge because of this situation, by the way, guess what? The UN has said is the is the. What you're doing the UN says, I know what you're doing. What is it? The UN says would you believe what you're doing each threatening the fight against climate change? Do you know what that is? You know what you're doing? But I'll tell you what you're doing. It's coming up morning ritual gear. Louis Kansas AM, seven ninety Tucson's.

There are locally owned kitchen about design center, and my wife was like I think we need to update our bathrooms, and I'm like the bathrooms look up to the reds are they're gonna look great. It's a lot more to it than I realized not that it's hard. But I don't I don't have the actual answers to these questions. Thank God, Kelly's working my wife because my my wife would normally ask me questions, and I'm like why asking me this stuff. What's great? Is that Kelly's dealing my wife. I don't have to deal with it. Okay. There's more than just replacing the my wife wants new cabinet tree new countertops, new sings vessel, sinks. So there's more to Kelly's like all. Right. You want vessels thinks what size because we got to figure out the room between the wall where the mirror is and the sink faucet back. There. Do you know how much room there is how how big is your cabinets, you're going to have to redo the flooring, you know, for the floor. What do you have to do you could just simply replace the countertop? My wife wants to a whole shebang. You can do in your kitchen your bathroom. They have a granite yard of granite planet. What I'm saying is they make it easy answer all the questions, and they have everything you need there from the sinks to the faucets of the countertop granite, and granite, the marble the courts inside back splash, and they have the.
