F.D.A. Analyses Find Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Works Well
"May soon be available in the United States. The Food and Drug Administration could decide as soon as this weekend to authorize a vaccine made by pharmaceutical giant Johnson and Johnson for emergency use. The FDA today released its evaluation of the new vaccine and NPR's Joe Palka joins us to describe what they found Hijo. Hi, Ari. So there were a lot of details in the FDA is evaluation, but bottom line. Was it positive or negative about it? Well, they don't exactly give conclusions like that. But general, you'd have to say that the analysis was positive. The FDA based its judgment on a large study involving some 40,000 participants that was carried out primarily in the United States, South Africa and Brazil. Now, this vaccine only requires a single shot, so participants either got the vaccine or a placebo. And what researchers found was that overall, the vaccine efficacy was about 66% in preventing moderate to severe cove in 19. And 85% against more serious disease. Stacy Schultz Terry is a professor of infectious diseases at ST Jude Children's Research Hospital, and she took a look at the FDA analysis. I did not see anything that would make me pause in recommending that somebody would go get this shot. Joe tell us more about that 66% number because a lot of people have zeroed in on that to say, Wait. Does this mean it's less effective than the Fizer and Madonna vaccines, which reported close to 95% of efficacy? Yeah, The numbers suggest that but you have to have a little context here. First of all, you have to remember that. Initially people would have been satisfied with the vaccine that was just 50% of efficacy. So this is the first vaccine to come. If this had been the first vaccine to come along, people would have been thrilled. Second vaccines behave differently when the rolled out to millions of people, and so there may be changes in the numbers going forward and third variants have popped up around the world. And Schultz Kerry says the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is the first to be tested against those and it did well, African see against the virus circulating in the U. S Good African see against thesis South African and the Brazilian variance as well. And the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is easier to store and distribute than the other two. Tell us about that. Well, yes, I mean, the first obvious thing is that the only requires one shot And that means people don't have to come back. You don't have to chase after them to make sure they get a second shot, so that makes logistic easier. And second of all, it's not as it's easier to store. It doesn't require these special freezers that the modern a vaccine requires. And so what happens next? We said there could be emergency authorization as soon as this weekend. Well, the process works like this. The FDA receives a bunch of material from the company and then they evaluated and that's what they released today and then before they make a decision, they convened a group called the Vaccine Advisory Committee. And they will meet on Friday to discuss and evaluate and two over the data, and by the end of the day, they'll issue some sort of a recommendation to the FDA and the FDA generally follows the recommendations of this advisory committee. And how much of a difference is this likely to make in the supply situation if there are three circulating rather than to now? Well, it's going to make a difference. Maybe not right away. There's going to be a few million three or four million doses released almost immediately if the vaccine is approved or authorized. 20 million. They expect by the end of March and 100 million by the end of June, so it's not going to solve the problem right away. But it will certainly help NPR's Joe

The Mystery Of The Pennhurst Asylum
"The eastern pennsylvania institution for the feeble minded and epileptic later called pinehurst asylum was originally established as a facility for the disabled opened in nineteen o eight. The property contained in array of buildings all scattered around large tracts of farmland in chester county. Thirty miles outside of philadelphia though it might sound like it was designed for care and comfort. The reality was anything. But the institute was first created to house intellectually and developmentally disabled people alongside those who suffered from epilepsy but this strategy was unwise as such patients had very different needs. What's worse is that. Many of the institutions goals were based on the nineteenth century eugenics movement proponents of the movement believed that the human gene pool should be protected and anyone deemed. Genetically inferior. Should be prevented from reproducing by forced sterilization or segregation from the rest of society. For this reason. People with certain kinds of disabilities whose families could not care for them were sent to penn hearst. Most of them came as infants or children. Girls and boys are separated into different buildings. So there wouldn't be any sexual mixing in the decades since the institution closed a slew of modern day rumors claim that penn hurst carried out forced sterilizations on its patients. But while sterilization did occur at similar institutions in the united states. There was actually no record of it at pinehurst. Rumors of the institute's horrific procedures ran rampant. The last perhaps this is because the hospital was shrouded in an era of mystery it operated almost completely independently of the outside world. It had its own power plant and produced its own. Food and supplies were brought in by a special rail. Line pen hurts was designed so that no one from the outside could get in but more importantly so that no one on the inside could ever get out.

Purell Hopes Well Sanitize Long After the Pandemic Ends
"Daily on this friday february fifth. Happy friday everyone. Here's a question. How much hand sanitizer did you use this week. And betting a lot certainly more than you use before the start of the covid nineteen pandemic well. The same probably goes for the number of extra paper towel rolls. Unopened surface cleaners. You have stored in your home. There is no question that the pandemic has changed our buying habits but it's also changed our hygiene hazards including you guessed it. Just how much sanitizer.

Al recently made a move. That's a rarity in its sector. They built a new factory and a new warehouse. Now that is an expensive undertaking. Unless of course. There's a payoff which begs the question. Will there be pure l. Says yes there are betting that demand for hand sanitizer will remain high even when the pandemic is eventually in the rear view mirror. Go jos chief.

That's a risky move. That other companies within demand products aren't ready to make yet clorox which sells disinfecting cleaners hand wipes and hand sanitizers also saw demand grow during the pandemic as did lysol which sells cleaners and yes hand sanitizer but instead of breaking ground on new buildings clorox and lysol looked for other ways to expand and make more products faster. The wall street journal reported that both companies reconfigured existing factories to increase output and they hired third party manufacturers to make more products if the pandemic ends and demand decreases well. They can simply discontinue the third party products and not lose much money if anything. The pandemic has crowded the hand sanitizer market companies like proctor and gamble which did not sell sanitizer previously jumped into action at the beginning of the pandemic and produce their own sanitizer safeguard for consumers. And don't forget the distilleries texas based vodka maker tito's produced more than eleven hundred tons of hand sanitizer between march and december of last year which they gave away to first responders and other critical personnel other distilleries across the country bottled their sanitizers for profit. Which helped him stay afloat. When tours and tastings were cancelled someday someday this pandemic will be over and when that day comes.

How Biden's appointment will affect international religious freedom
"There has been in recent years. A fair emphasis placed on the notion of religious freedom. And the question arises. Of course on this, like so many other issues. What changes will be made with the change at the White House and we're joined now. By Susan Crabtree. White House and national political correspondent at real clear politics dot com. Susan. Thank you for being with us. Thanks for having me Jim, are you speaking here about religious freedom in this country or around the world? Well, in this case, I'm talking about international religious freedom. That was a big emphasis in the Trump Administration, State Department with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Thean Basseterre for religious freedom. Can't uh And Brownback another cans and seeming up to make it a big priority in the Trump administration. They really did more on this issue than And the administration. In the past, they held a huge summit that attracted 100 and five countries from around the world, the biggest of its kind. To really Look out on this issue and talk about issues that there are playing out around the world that are basically Terrible circumstances in China with nearly million Wickers, um being persecuted and forced into labor camp. And in places like Burma, where they're working. Go. Muslims have been slaughtered by the tens of thousands in recent years and pushed out become refugees. Think huge refugee problem. So this Thies air issues that the Trump administration made a huge, Ah, big priority at into integral part of it. Um, foreign policy, and we're wondering on a lot of the people in the advocacy community in Washington and around the world are wondering if it's going to continue. And I understand that. Ah, Mr Brownback is quite optimistic that this will continue as well as our speaker Pelosi and former Republican Congressman Frank Wolf. Well, I don't know about Speaker Pelosi and and Frank Wolf. They were they did get together. This is a priority for secret Pelosi over the years as well. She's spoken about out about human rights in China. When, as far back as when the Congress is considering most favored nations status that creates status for China. She's always been ah, big advocate of human rights when it comes to religious freedom. She and Frank Wolf teamed up and did have a big debate. And, um, at one of the summit that I was just talking about, But in terms of where Biden is, we really don't know it. Kind of a candle in his administration, because He has talked about his own personal faith quite a bit on the campaign trail, but we don't know where he stands in terms of making religious freedom the priority of its foreign policy. Because he seems like people are fearful that climate change is going to really be the big push. We already see John Kerry being named as the Called climates are on, and the President elect Joe Biden, has that pledged he would rejoin the Paris climate accord. Although, of course we are able to walk and chew gum at the same time. I believe, right. We could do both, couldn't we Well, one would hope, but they will see pretty soon here, whether a divided names and Ambassador for religious freedom And that would show that he is he. This is a bigger priority in one might think for his administration. Um, the Obama administration left that position. Taken for several years, and that concerns some of the activists and, um and they're worried, very worried that this is going to become less of a priority. Under Joe Biden. But you know, it depends on who he named to replace Sam Brownback. He There are a number of people named circulating. Certainly Katrina plant of what is one of those people. She is the daughter of Tom Lantos, who actually served in the administrations. Certain Congress with Joe guidance, and he was on Lee, Holocaust survivor to have ever held a seat in Congress. And he has quite a legacy going, and until then, it was very supportive that in fact, Between plant is what is now running human rights sanitation, and she gave Joe Biden, um one of its big first awards a number of years ago, and Biden had pledged to not turn a blind eye to this type of religious persecution. Um, he actually said that we have to be true to Tom Lantos. His legacy so If he names a between Atlantic Into sweat. I think that be advocacy, community community and globally will be a little bit more sure that he's taking this issue very, very seriously and will continue these big summit that we've seen during the Trump administration. And the groundwork that Come peyote and Brownback laid

I don't want to say my special was good and I don't even want to say that necessarily was in any way prophetic but I'm happy with it. I am happy with my special time fun which you can watch on net flicks which is still very watchable. I would say the last two to real an end times fun on Netflix are the best work I've ever done and maybe the last work I do in that medium so and I'm okay with that. But I didn't anticipate this. I did not.

"I'm John. Horn asked the entertainment industry begins the slow process of returning to work. Will there be as Carrie? Washington says a real shift in institutional practices can there be a different and more diverse Hollywood. We know because of the coronavirus. There will be changes in how people do their work. But. What about the work itself? How far will the industry reset? Actually go? This is Hollywood the sequel. Welcome to our new podcast from La Studios. Each week were sitting down with some of the sharpest minds in the entertainment business to talk about where Hollywood might be headed as it returns to work. We'll get into the external changes for production marketing distribution, and with the movie theater business in tatters. What even defines ahead? We'll also explore the biggest question of all. Will there be systemic change that finally corrects the inequalities that may have been acknowledged, but hardly repaired. And that's where we'll begin this first episode with actor and producer. Kerry Washington. You know her from the TV series scandal. We spoke initially in mid-may, and we'll share that conversation in a bit, but after the killings of George Floyd Brianna, Taylor Ahmad Arboretum and the protests against police, brutality and systemic racism that followed we wanted to get carries thoughts on how this moment might affect the entertainment industry and America itself. I think one of the things that is challenging to. METABOLIZE is that. Not, that much has changed for black people in the last couple of weeks. But there's a different response to it. And so I think. The sentiments of the moment that feel revelatory. I don't feel like those feelings belong to me this. This is not a moment of revelation, but I'm watching the revelation. Unfold around me for people. And I'm grateful that that as a not even as a country, but that the world is showing up for black lives. In a different way. But this is what what has been the reality, this level of danger and anger and fear and. Maybe trauma lack of safety like these have been the realities for black Americans since there were black Americans. There are fundamental differences between a moment and a turning point and I'm wondering optimistically even. Is there a way that real change not only in the country, but also in the business that you work in. Can come out of this. I think so. I think I can hope so. You know I mean we're not. None of us have a crystal ball. It'll be the historians that tell us years from now whether this was a flash point a turning point. But I? I it feels it certainly feels for me like something is different, and like we have to be willing to look at ourselves. Regardless of what industry were in. Do you hope comes out of it? What are you hope changes I? Mean what what would you say would mark progress or change? I think a more radical acceptance of Anti Racist, society policies and culture because I think what people are realizing is that it's not enough to just not be racist that because our institutions. Were built. In the fabric of racism because our country was born, you know with. Black Americans being designated a fraction of human being like it's. It's not enough to just not be racist. We have to be actively anti-racist. and for that desire to come from. A deep. Understanding that we all deserve full rights of humanity. Yes all lives matter, but accepting that to be an anti-racist society. We have to affirm that black lives matter. I think that's I. think that's where we're at I think people are finally kind of. That and our institutions need to understand that not just. Interpersonal relationships, it's important that we're having those conversations that our dinner tables in in our classrooms, but also at the highest levels in our systems of government in our systems that are supposedly built for public safety. We have to ask ourselves. Who Do we deem the public? And who do we deem the enemy? so. I, I'm hoping that I'm hoping that that this all of this new. revelatory reflection lends itself to transformation, not just the hearts and minds, but also institutional practices, and those institutions can include you know arts organizations like the theater industry. Because there's this letter Hashtag, we see you which calls out racism in the theater. It signed by people like Sterling K.. Brown is Array Lin Manuel Miranda I. Think you shared it on twitter. What comes out of that and the best possible outcome to me. It seems really obvious like. We look at ourselves to get better and do better. That's the that's the practice of self. Reflection is to ask ourselves how we can do better so I mean even the language of inclusivity and diversity right like when we say that we're committed to diversity its diverse from what we're still centering whiteness as the most important thing and allowing or inviting diversity around that or when we talk about inclusivity. They're still an in out, so we're still centering certain kinds of people and you know maybe in tiny fractions allowing admitting other people to the table, so there's just so much of it that needs to be reexamined and and look at and and I. I mean the. The simple answer is what I hope comes out of. It is a lot of good. That we can see. Better and have courage to make room for each other..

And my mom God help our. My mother's a very stoic person, and she because she's an educator. She thought I have to give this kid a place to have all of these feelings, and it's not my living room, so I'm GONNA put her in children's theatre company and she really allowed me to kind of express myself. Through these local community, children's theatre programs happy medium in the Bronx with to die here in New, York, which is a great children's theatre company and. And that allowed my mom to live in her safe zone emotionally, but also allowed me to be this expressive walking hid. Who isn't that great mother just to say like? I don't totally get this but I know she loves it. She is really I. My mom inspires me so much as a mother because she really. She's always met me where I am to the best of her ability, and it probably comes from decades and decades of being a teacher, and then training teachers that she's dealt with every kind of kid. There is in the world and so she was really able to see me for who I am and help foster, and then and then regret it later when I wanted to make a career out of it, but now she's she's good, Selena the governor's ball and she's not hungry neither am I.

For people haven't seen the play. How do you describe it first of all before we dig into the component parts sure so. The whole film I play now film takes place in real time ninety minutes in the lobby of a police precinct, and it's the story of black mom. They buy me and a White Dad who are desperately looking for their eighteen year old son, who's just gone missing and they know he's had some kind of altercation with the COPS, but they don't know what's happened, so it's really. Really that like dropping into that parents, worst nightmare of not being able to track your kid down and spending time with them to learn kind of how extra complicated it is when that child you're looking for is black and is involved with law enforcement, so get so obviously. It was adapted from the play, but it seems to me that it's very close to what play was. Obviously the cast is the same, but the set is very similar. Wardrobe all of it. Yeah, we brought a lot of the same designers was the original cast, and we brought a lot of designers production design. Costume design I feel like I had two big desires for myself. And making the film I wanted people to leave with the same feeling they had leaving the play, which was a feeling of wanting to continue this conversation, wanting to make a change in the world wanting to be able to impact. The lives of young people so that we don't continue to have parents up in the middle of the night terrified for the outcomes of their kids. But also really wanted people to want to go to the theater, I wanted people to feel like they have been part of a theatrical experience, and to want to be part of our really beautiful theater community. So, when we did the play, I was so proud of it, but there were barriers to entry based on geography. Not Everybody can fly to New York to see a play on Broadway based on price Broadway. Tickets are expensive so being able to bring the film to Net means that it's available to anybody.

A great one Kerry Washington carries the star of the new NETFLIX's film, American son, it takes a raw look at race and policing in America Americans son started as a Broadway play. It was a hit there, and so now they've made it into a Netflix film, basically in its original Broadway form same cast. Virtually the same set, and it's a ninety minute film that just grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let you go. We'll talk about that and more in the interview I'm joined on this podcast by the producer of the podcast. Maggie Maggie, so we're just talking about how much we love Kerry wash. great actor obviously incredibly intelligent outside the realm of film takes her activism seriously incredibly well-versed on politics and issues of the day. Her big head of course was scandal. Seven seasons on scandal landed that Gig in two thousand twelve. She played Olivia. Pope a Washington fixer kind of a juicy role I think it's fair to say legally ship with the president of the United States. Everybody loved that role of Olivia Pope, but she's got a long story that started in the Bronx. She grew up with the parents, her mother of a teacher, her father realtor. She's a professor, actually her mother. And they were very skeptical. Dreams of becoming. She says she didn't want. They didn't want her to become an actress, but my favorite one of my favorite ones, and she said she was with her mom at the EMMYS and her mom sliced into a filet mignon. Starving artists.

"This is fresh air. And if you're just joining us. My guest is Carrie. Washington she starts with Reese Witherspoon in the new series little fires everywhere which streaming on Hulu Washington and Witherspoon also produced this series? You Witherspoon are both founding members of times up which is the organization in responding to the METOO movement working on gender equality working against sexual harassment and You Played Anita Hill in the HBO. Movie confirmation. You're probably a teenager during the Clarence Thomas hearings. So I don't know how closely you followed what was happening but playing her and having to do the research about what happened. What we're one or two of the things that you found just like most disturbing about how she was treated and how hearings are handled. Why remember really distinctly when the hearings happened because it was one of the first times that I really saw. My parents disagree on a social political issue. They usually my parents were really in agreement Around issues having to do with money or politics or black identity. But because of intersection analogy This was a moment where I watched my mom. And Dad processes experience very differently as a black woman and a black man And it was disturbing to me And and I and I'll never forget it. It really made me question who was in the right and I think any the hell is such a hero and I wanted to be able to explore for both characters for both Clarence Thomas. Anita Hill what was at stake for them and what. It costs them And in particular. Because Clarence Thomas I think is often perceived as the winner in that situation because he got to have his seat on the Supreme Court but Anita Hill transformed society. She changed the shape of Congress and gave us language for sexual harassment. Really transformed our cultural practices in this country and so I wanted to be able to to shine a light on that as well. What did you learn about your appearance? Hearing them disagree about Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill. And I'm assuming your father defended Clarence Thomas and that your mother was on a hillside. Yeah I think my dad and I really I when I look back I understand. My Dad was devastated. That this black man who was going to you know sit on the highest court in the land was being raked through the mud and he felt that Anita Hill should have had more loyalty to the black community that this was bad for black people black people as a whole. I must say that my dad is now not of that opinion That my dad has has grown in his feminist ideology. Through the years. I would be remiss to not say that My Dad is is is pretty amazing person But he was the product of his time and felt the way a lot of black men did at the time and my mom believed Anita Hill. And so I think it was one of the first moments that I realized the unique challenges of being a black woman my impression watching Anita Hill during the hearings is that she was trying so hard not to show any emotion to just GonNa give the facts answer the questions and remain as firm but as emotionally neutral as possible. Did you feel that way too? Did you try to play her? That way yeah I mean I I could probably recite the hearings to you now. I watched them so much and I tried to approach playing her with the influence of Anna deavere Smith like I really tried to watch the video and listen to the audio and and capture the cadence and the rhythm of Anita Hill and I tried to figure out what I could learn about her personality from the placement of the way that she was speaking to those senators and even in her everyday life. But it's so very different from how I speak and that that difference is reflective of who she is so it was really fun to kind of work in that way and and wrap my head around her using her voice and her posture and her walk in sort of an outside in approach to the character. She had very good posture. She actually. She did have very good posture but she also has a little. I won't call it a slump because she's far to graceland elegant to call it a slump but she protects her heart when she sits and so. There's a slight curvature to her shoulders and the way that she protects her heart And and doesn't let people have access to her her inner most heartfelt feelings and identity I love the way you've turned her her her body her posture into a metaphor. We'll it is. I mean you really you know you know you can study Alexander Technique. You know for how people move in. The world says a lot about who they are. I used to go to rehearsals for scandal in sweatpants and a sweatshirt but I could not do the scene unless I had the shoes high heel shoes on four inch heels because Libya pope had a walk and she had a posture and she had a stance and I couldn't rehearse a scene in flip flops or sneakers even when I was nine months pregnant playing. I'M GONNA Pope. I was in four inch heels sometimes wedges but I still had to have that he'll because that that extra height and not extra lean forward and that extra tightness in the belly and the core that a he'll requires that's part of the steeliness of WHO Livia Pope is so I always say I don't know who character is until I know what shoes they're wearing until I figure out the walk until I figure out how they stand. You know one of the things you try to do is to be of service in the causes that your act have been a now with the with the virus one of the things that you did in conjunction with the World Health Organization and global citizen as you did Acuna with California's Surgeon General Nadine Burke Harris and you ask for questions from I guess that was through Instagram. That you asked for questions and you posed the questions to her and she answered and in the this like eight minute. Qna that you had with her. You said one of the questions that you were really surprised that you were asked that you had to ask. It was the question is the virus affecting black people and black people. Get the virus What did it say to you that people were wondering about that way? I think the landscape has changed dramatically. Since then we've had a lot a few days ago. Yeah Yeah We. We've had a lot more. Black people be impacted and affected by the virus. But I think at the time it speaks to kind of how separate our communities remain in this country and I thought thought you might say that. Yeah there's a huge gap between worlds and a lot of ways that we don't we don't always if we watch the news and we don't see somebody who looks exactly like us. We don't necessarily think that it has to do with us. I want to preface question by mid knowledge ing something. I know you'd want to acknowledge that. You're you're very lucky right now in the sense that like you don't have to worry about employment or having enough money to pay rent or get food or you know you're covered on all those things but that doesn't mean that you're not worried it doesn't mean you're not worried about your children and your and your husband and that it's just not you know really radically changing your life. So how are you keeping your spirits up if you are And I think I'm keeping my spirits up with a lot of prayer and I am doing some meditation. Which is something I always want to be doing and buy some meditation. I mean three minutes a day but I am setting my timer and doing three minutes of meditation before running downstairs and And really trying to be honest with the people that I that are safe to be honest with about What I'm feeling and what my struggles are and how I can do better for myself and my family and for society and When I hear about loss you know people friends and loved ones of friends that are sick and dying To try to just continue to express love and support and stay connected to each other.

Abc's series scandal as a political fixer. Who has her own crisis management firm and is having an affair with the president of the United States? Let's talk about scandal and how that series changed her life. Let's start with a scene from it and in scandal. You play political fixer. Who has your own crisis management company and your character's name is Lydia Pope and you've been hired by the president to handle an eight a young woman who claims she's sleeping with the president and what we don't know at this point is that your character has a romantic history of her own with the President and she confronts the President about this aid and he tells her it's alive so in this scene you're dealing with the aid. She sitting on a park bench name is Amanda and she sitting on a park bench with her dog. You SPEAK FIRST CUTE. Dog Golden Retriever. Yeah his name's Thomas Jefferson which is lane. I know but he's very presidential. Itj mandate would be a mistake to think there will be no consequences to you telling lies about the president name. Who Are you? My name is Lavi Pope and I WANNA be clear. I'm not here in any official capacity. I'm only here to warn you that because you know what could happen. It could become hard for you to find employment. Your face would be everywhere. People would associate you with a sex scandal. All kinds of information about you would easily become available to the press. For example you've had twenty two sexual partners that we know of. Also there's that ugly bout of gonorrhea and your family your mother's mental illnesses psychotic break two years at Bedford Hospital. I bet that's private. She runs a daycare. Now Right he told me you love me. You gave me the stocks he. It's those kind of lies that could hurt you if you send them to other people people not as Nice as me. I'll give you some free advice. Hand in your resignation and pack up your dog and your things you get in your car and go and a small city Minneapolis. Maybe or Denver get a little job. Meet boring boy. Make some friends because in this town your career is over. You're done look good person in this was a good percent. Monica Lewinsky and she was telling the truth but she's still got destroyed. So that was Carrie Washington in a scene from scandal. The character that you played and scandal was loosely based on a real crisis manager named Judy Smith and one of her clients was Monica Lewinsky. Did you meet Judy Smith before playing this role? The first thing I want to tell you is that that was my audition monologue. Now you're kidding so I get emotional when I hear it actually because it it really like to hear that for me is really exemplifies the journey of the show because I was doing that monologue before the part was even mine So it's it's really special to hear it but yeah I did the character I we were always careful to say that Livia. Pope was inspired by Judy Smith. But Not Bay. Sundry Smith because Judy never had sex with George W Bush. That's that's super important. She was never having an affair with the president. But she did work in the Bush White House And she was a fixer and she did work with Monica Lewinsky And Judy and I spent a lot of time together when I was developing the character and then really throughout the series especially in seasons one and two we talk to each other almost every week and we would talk about plotlines and character and and how to make the show as authentic as possible. And I love Judy. We still talk now. You just said what we just heard was your Audition which I had no idea but How did you get the part when the script for scandal was circulating? This has been talked about a lot in the press but there hadn't been a black woman as the lead of a network drama in almost forty years And I was. I don't around thirty five thirty four thirty five at the time so in my lifetime I had never seen a network drama with a black woman as the lead so this was a highly coveted role And shonda really. She says she saw almost every black actress. In Hollywood between the ages of you know nineteen and sixty she really wanted to give everybody a shot and And then shot the Shonda rhimes who produced the series. Yeah it was our show runner. The Brilliant Shonda rhimes so when I read the script I thought this is mine like it felt like it was written for me. It brought together so many of my worlds and so much of my life experience working in Washington working on the campaigns. I really felt like I was born to play her. But there were like twenty other actresses who felt the same way So there were a series of auditions several auditions for a meeting with Shonda and then several auditions. And eventually I really had the privilege of being able to take this on and you know it's interesting because you are the first African American actress to be the lead in a TV series about forty years since get Christie love. You were not like a role model like your character. Did a lot of bad things so with a balance between her I think in many ways she was aspirational rate. She was an entrepreneur. Everybody wanted her closet. In fact we did a clothing line. Based on the character with the limited there was a lot about her fashion and her world and her intellect and her sexiness that was very aspirational but there was a lot about her character that was questionable that she was having an affair with the president that she would take on clients who were not always deemed as the good guys so I think that complexity was part of what drew people in. Let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining US my guest is Carrie Washington. And she is now starring in the Hulu series little fires everywhere. We'll be right back but first we're going to take a short break. This is fresh air right now. Every household in the country is being asked to fill out.

"Not sure how Kerry finds these but I like him vision in my mind on a Friday night recording all star Saturday right past doing doing local search well washing live PD yeah it's it gets weirder talkin aquaponics enough questions pose going right as you're going to break what tell kind of water used to reattach and is this is this something sustainable for the desert well so I get this question a lot because of the fruit trees you know every tree something sustainable for the desert and really the bigger question is is four point eight million people sustainable for the desert that's really the question that we have to and that's a low number well as it being the twenty twenty cent the twenty twenty senses comes out we're probably closer to six well in the state I'm so I'm saying the Phoenix metropolitan area and you know really what we're there's a there's a balance here and the balance that we run into is all right do we ship this stuff in do you know what food miles are ever heard of food miles I have an idea but now Iraq haven't heard specifically it's Adam miles that food travels from where it's grown to where it's consumed and what do you think any guesses how many miles is the average food miles in the United States who who who make up something twelve hundred fifteen hundred to two thousand miles so when we're looking at a peach or a fish or a tomato or anything that's grown in right now blueberries in the grocery store are from Peru Chile one of the two I can't remember long way long way the environmental impact on that is huge for the you know picking it shipping it so on and so on one just a manufacturing process for oil consumes a bunch of water right right to get the stuff transferred from there to here so that's really the thing that we have to look at when we're looking at all right is growing food in the desert appropriate well first of all those four point eight million people in the in the valley secondly the environmental impact of shipping it third thing and this is a really important piece the nutritive value or the nutrition the nutritional value of the food when something is picked this isn't this doesn't include fish or maybe it does when something is picked off the vine of peaches picked that's picked one is not right if there are you know if it's coming from South America or Australia they pick it when it's not rape it could be bad by the time I got here because of a bad by the time I got here plus the nutrient density of it isn't complete so they're picking a let's just call it a pizza there picking a peach that's not fully nutrient dense and then the second they pick it and they travel it it starts degrading nutritionally so by the time it gets to the grocery store the nutritional value is less and I would suspect the same thing would be for you know fish once they kill a fish the nutritional value starts to degrade so that it's not as good for us so that's the balance that we have to look at is when we're looking at at are we gonna raise food in the desert and how we gonna raise food in the desert are we going to ship it from Nebraska or Chile or Peru or New Zealand which those are places that we ship food from all the time so that's really the bigger question is how do we look at how do we look at the the the environmental impact of the stuff and so I say grow the food locally here's the cool thing hydroponics uses ninety percent less water than that right correct yeah compared to conventional agriculture when you apply water to of field that water infiltrates into the ground the plant uses part of that and then it it it goes below the where the plants can use the that water and so warm without coupon X. you're recirculating that water you're not losing any water to the soil by infiltration you're losing the only water you're losing is the water that evaporates and the water the plants use so it during the summer during peak evaporation times evaporation or adding it may be thirty gallons of water a week to a a two hundred gallon tank so it is actually quite water efficient how many times can you recycle the water it infinite eat I've never had to empty my take I guess mother nature's done it for many the benefit of using the tilapia they can take up a high saline content water better than than other fish and so when you're adding your your tap water your fresh water you're you're reducing that salinity in the water okay you guys are really piqued my curiosity this sounds cool but it on first impression for someone listing of her it seems capital intensive there is an investment it's a do it yourself project that involves many different at where.

"Kerry a little over the average for the nation about seven thousand Bucks for credit card and about forty percent of those consumer roll their balances month after month of a lot of people to pay their bills every month credit card bills if they can it's great to do if you if not then just trying to carry huge balance I think if you got little kids you've got grandkids we'll give you a quick idea how the T. two about credit loan money for something something small the play video games they they want something that costs fifty sixty hundred box slim save some money a deposit or down payment will call out and then give them terms and and give them a bill every month to listen you only sixty dollars your interest rate is going to be ten percent and your payments going to be due on the first and if you don't buy it by the tenth even a penny a couple dollars extra into the exercise will then let them build credit with you and then let them understand that your money costs money for less money when you give a kid money out of your pocket for less money you have to feed the family pay bills or whatever situation you get it but if you want help with that exercise let me know hope you walk through that right it's powerful super powerful but on the other side of the breaker box is going to be here for the copper.

"I thought you should know Kerry was the first to throw her arms around Mary I put my arms around the two of them and we held each other in silence no one knew what to say the Nile perhaps is unnecessary human function to cope with the heartaches of life the following weeks proceeded largely without incident and it became increasingly tempting to delude ourselves into complacency imagining that all was well when that merry would soon recover as quickly as we did however her headaches would return and reality would slap our faces as brightly as the frigid December wins there was one other curious changing merry's behavior merry seems to be growing remarkably disturbed by my obsession with work and now took it upon herself to interrupt my endeavors it increasingly frequent intervals such was the occasion the evening that she asked the question Richard have you ever wondered what the first Christmas gift was her question broke mine Grossman in matters of business and weekly returns I looked up no I can't say that I've given it much thought probably gold frankincense armor if in that order it was gold I sensed that she was unsatisfied with my answer if an appeal to King James will answer your question I'll do so on Sunday I said hoping to put the question to rest she remained unmoved this is not a trivial question she said firmly understanding the first gift of Christmas is important I'm sure it is merry but this is important right now no she snapped you don't know what is important right now she turned abruptly and walked from the room I sat quietly alone stone from the exchange I put away the ledger and climbed the stairs to our room as I readied for bed I posed to carry the question Mary had asked the first gift of Christmas she asked sweetly this is a trick question no I don't think so merry just asked me was quite upset that I didn't know the answer hope she doesn't ask me them Kerry said rolling over to sleep I continued to ponder the question of the first gift of Christmas until I gradually fell off in slumber that night the angel haunted my dreams the following morning at the breakfast table Kerry and I discussed the previous evening's confrontation I think that the cancer is finally affecting her I said how is that Kerry asked her mind she's starting to lose her mind she's not losing her mind she said firmly she's a sharp as your me such a strong no I said defensively I'm with her all day I ought to know then why is she acting this way asking weird questions I think she's trying to share something with you wreck I don't know what it is but there is something Kerry walked over to the counter and brought a jar of honey to the table Mary as the warmest most open individual I have ever met except she paused do you ever get the feeling that she's hiding something something something tragic terribly tragic something that shapes U. and changes your perspective forever I don't know what you're talking about I said.
