Insider Info with Annie Kreighbaum and Nick Axelrod-Welk

"Our guest today are anti creek bombs. And nick axelrod welk anne neck i love. I love a duo on the podcast. Welcome thing so excited to be here so let me let me give a little. A little highlight with your bio. Anne is a beauty journalist turned exac and former brand lead for glossy and nick is a former reporter for l. and wwe which is women's wear daily correct. Yes it is there. Were these things called. Newspapers that we used to read would get delivered every day. It was the fashion newspaper. Like the most. I one of the most iconic fashion newspapers i would say and you are also the co founder of the personal brand. Excuse me personal care brand. Necessar- said that right. It's been awhile since i've taken french. And you co founded the iconic beauty site into the gloss and together. They co host eyewitness beauty which is a beauty and pop culture. Podcast available wherever you get your podcast. You guys to focus on the business side of beauty. And i'm curious with this question. I'm not even i'm wondering if it's even possible for there to be trends in beauty in twenty twenty one when when the beauty is feels like the world has kind of just been uprooted or or changed by this pandemic but what are some trends that you are are seeing that you're seeing and that you like for yourself well on the kind of inside baseball cy. But sure it's not news to anyone like you describe yourself as like more of like a novice like outsiders which i think you're an expert than you give credit for it. But but for since the since they started tracking this stuff color cosmetics which make up products. I don't need to explain to anybody. Listening with that. Means has been like the category that's been consistently the number one revenue driver for any like big brand just for the industry in general like like the biggest challenge of the pie. I don't know what color cosmetics is so that's basically when you walk into a sephora and you're you're the first thing you see is makeup skin care is in the back of the store and the fragrances at the back of the wall like. That's all intentional. In order of sales. Yeah oh lord was at a certain point. Yeah learning okay okay. yeah so. The industry is is sliced up. Land like hair care. Skin care whatever color. Cosmetics has been like since the dawn of time like the number one biggest category billions of billions of dollars. Will just last year skin care has taken over which hilly coming from my glossy and like kind of seeing that wave happen. I think it really started with k beauty coming into the us people on the internet. We're getting much more educated around like ingredients and different. There's going team. I think like the trend has been going on for quite some time. But just last year. I think with the pandemic And people being at home and having to diy more skin care. And i think too like people understanding like actually. I don't need to see a dermatologist. For every little thing. I can exhausted. Leasings myself Skin-care has overtaken. So i think that that's gonna continue for sure in like the entrance of all these mid to lower mid range brands in terms of price point like the ordinary or the inky list or natori like things that could all of a sudden by acid For ten dollars versus what happened probably five years ago which is either the hydraulic. Acid is from lemaire and it's two hundred and fifty dollars or they're probably wasn't even one you could buy in the drug store so i think that they're just exists now category of product. So that you know what like with makeup. You could buy ten dollar lipstick to get the same idea as a forty dollar up stick Same relative color now with skin care. You can sort of do the same thing. Okay so many so many questions. So i wanna i ask you because you mentioned this sensation of going into sephora and everything is so deeply intentional and i know it's the same with marketing and packaging and in thinking about like price points getting lower. Our is the quality of products the same so much of beauty just like markups and exclusivity and making something sound fancy and getting it in the hands of like victoria beckham or is there a true difference in quality so one anecdote i have. Is that one time someone told me in this completely rocked my world. That lemaire is made in long island and and that sort of says it all like you know. It's a cream with some like plankton. In it or you know no seaweed. I guess and it's made long island and they call it. Lum creme de la mayor and it's three hundred dollars Is that does that mean that. There's two hundred dollars worth of ingredients in there. No one hundred fifty. No one hundred fifty eight okay. So for context like the markup degree product but for a healthy cosmetics company business in general the markup on cosmetics from the goop and the packaging is eighty percent margins. So a two dollar what it cost you two dollars to make gold charge ten dollars for and that's like standard across the industry and you can't really knock a cosmetics company for doing that because they are so so cheap to make and to have investors to be able to pay the bills to be able to make this something that can really support a team and you know whatever and like grow a business. That's just industry standard so like. I don't think anybody's pulling the wool. Over consumers is this markup rate on the fashion. It's like some pence fifty percent or less of a markup. So that's i kind of a comparison. I forgot like what other interesting. I was about to say it. But i'm sure nick has a million. Well well yeah it's not. It's not an evil thing. The markup i think there's so many more there's so many more costs testing everything saying what's the difference between something that's like super expensive versus something. That's like a little bit more accessible. I do think that there's a huge difference. I mean i think what the ordinary did is like very interesting. And i still think they make like a lot of great products in general but you kinda of see like the texture of putting on like the heireann sierra and from the ordinary that costs you six dollars versus like one that has more ingredients in it from like a. I don't even know if they have one and playing with taught harper. Like it's this absorbs into skin better doesn't leave sticky feeling. Where's better under makeup. Like might smell nicer. These are all things that you have to consider. Its except for some people. It's worth paying for for others. It's not worth it and they'd rather just by the seven dollar one so okay so this leads me to my next question. Which is i'm kind of obsessed with this idea of dupes especially when it comes to here and makeup like and candles but not all. Dupes are really dupes. I kind of get into this. Like spiral do you believe. Dupes are real as possible to have a troop in skin care or makeup products. I think it's rare. There's certain things that you can charge more money. For the candle you can afford like a fragrance concentrations get a more powerful fragrance certain synthetics that are really expensive like amd brett Which is a mosque. like an animal derived. it was an animal derived. Musk now it's all Made in the lab But that is like a really expensive thing to create. So that's why a lot of like less expensive candles expensive fragrances. Don't have that smell

"Beautiful. I think you're I think it's right and I'm assuming I'm not I'm not mocking but I'm absorbing I I agree. I think I feel the same if if those beautiful thing about this, it's unfortunate that it Colin comes across the specs of Public Safety and sometimes people's lives but in a certain sense, it feels like selfishly in a totally selfish sense. And I mean that in the sense of the word that selfishness just means not interest and self-preservation that it is an opportunity for me to like kind of dive back into. Oh what are things that I really like what are things that I enjoy from a fan perspective? What are the things that make me like? Oh, this is why art is really beautiful and really useful and I'm saying and why really, it's really really essential and I am at a point of a strange impasse with songs and songwriting right now, but I'm spending the time with my other interests allows me to I'm hoping that it's going to allow me to be truthful about my intention as far as songwriting because I would be To come back to the song ratings because and writing and pushing forward because I'm like, oh no, this is a service industry. This is bigger than me and I truly believe that again and I truly need to contribute. I need to put something in a Pantheon and not for the reason specifically that it's just me talking about things that I think are important because I have the ability to it's not just about me yet. I mean wage and I'd like to get to that to that point, but I also know that I cannot all I can do is kind of set the bed, you know, I can I can keep the room clean and in the hope that the odd feeling returns and wants to stay, you know, yeah well and and speaking from the point of view as our Lamar fans like we were stoked when you walked in the room back in Nashville, but there is they, you know, there is an equivalence between like, you know, the way that you hit like the chorus of all right. I'm all right, and and the way that you light up talking about Paramore or video game. So whenever like those those those are the same like as as an observer and as like somebody serve absorbing stuff that is the same feeling we are watching like like unfettered like passion for something and whether that's music or that's just fashion. Like that's that's the thing. So I you know, like not that you need anybody to like say go ahead do it. But like you're not giving up anything. I think God by exploring those things because I think they're one in the same. I think that people will connect with with you getting stoked about like streaming and doing that. I think people can tell and that to be a fan of you or be an ambassador be a fan of anybody who's been on this show or or anything in general. It means recognizing what that passion is and what it looks like in connecting with it, you know in that same same way. So hey, I you know, I really think you're onto something really nice here. Thank you and likewise. I do I take that. I see it. I receive it and I appreciate it. Thank you so much for coming on the show Reggie. This has been Ashley page. Well, I quite as a breath of fresh air. These are things that I don't often get to talk with you about that. I think about with some frequency. So I appreciate it. So on your you're welcome on whenever. We hope to see you soon, buddy. Thank you so much. I feel like I'm surfacing off.

"Yeah, whether it be the groove which is amazing frankly for them and or Jesus lyrics or the performance or whatever. I saw the kids in the pit behaving the same way that I behaved when was sixteen and it just made me feel so much. Hope about the state of music about the state of Georgia saying honest and felt heartfelt things have still having a place in the music industry today, you know, and I saw it with my own eyes. Like it's not a story. Somebody told me it's not like a hope. It's I saw it. I felt it. was there, you know and so literally immediately that concert let out and then I found out whatever tattoo shop was open and I was like, need to remember this moment. So I told you I literally taught you the word remember on my arm. So that's not something you know, and not to use the phrase life in a bottle again, but it's like you saw what it meant to be a legendary band like you got to see like like and just I'm thinking as you were telling a story. I was remembering seeing them at Jones Beach and they brought the couch from from like the cover art of their first record. Wow from the cover art from that first record. Yeah, like I I just like but just remembering and just the fact that they have managed to stick the landing of coming into twenty-twenty being a powerful relevant, like like charged band that can resonate with any generation it it feels like how people talk off. Out and we're talking about, you know power more in the same way that we talked about the who are The Beatles are ever like these are things that have we'll have and please let them be the fucking Vu off and it's like really not like they were wage Mill guitar playing. All right, like they have they have reached a legend like a legendary status. You know, they were in Guitar Hero, you know, like that's where else do you go Guitar Hero and rock band true. I think the play as Haley in one of the guitar Heroes. So that's the thing is like, you know, you saw what it meant for a band to become a legend and that resonates with me. Absolutely. What was the first concert you ever attended first concert. You ever attended was Coheed and Cambria Russian circles. Jake's Landing in st. Pete, Florida. Nice as a good one. That was a huge fan. It was amazing. Do you remember the song the final cut by them? Yeah. Yeah. Yep. Yeah, so that was The Encore cuz this was during good Apollo. I'm burning star 4 and yeah, it was yeah, I know I really caught like we talked about lightning bottle. I know I have thought I had the, key made like I was like, oh bro..

"That song Angel part of it is the first thing that that joins in my head because I feel like it's like a it's a prologue. It's setting to see and it's like this is going to get really dark but it's supposed to be optimistic in the end. That's that's that's off. So that's like yeah also your your delivery like have you ever done slam poetry like you you're on that shit? No, I didn't because and and this is a this is another that maybe kind of a famous people but I don't like a Cadence that a lot of poets do that's wrong with the way that this thing here where they're taught King like this and are you are you say you William Shatner or are you just doing that for effect? I don't I don't like that. I don't I think it I think it undermines kind of some of the the I don't think it's maybe I just don't understand the medium. Well enough, I don't know because that's how I felt about John Mulaney first. I thought it was just like this was fucking boring stick figures, but then I then I started to understand like that. It's like really high level of absurdist kind of satire. So maybe I just maybe in a year, I'll say I'll look back on this podcast and cringe but I feel like my poetry is one of those like genre things where it's like, you know, there are people who choked up like a hip-hop authors. Or country or whatever as a genre without sort of diving into like oh certain people deliberately like this by the people deliver like this like, you know, and and I I started kind of in a in a Sim poetry in a space and because of that like I also hate that Cadence like I've always thought it's a bit ridiculous and I also felt like that was a crutch for having lines that actually didn't necessarily Derek off for me. It's been more like an expiration and like internal rhyme scheme as well as like delivery..

He makes skins for csgo. Okay. Okay. Okay. Do you have a favorite lyric from surfacing like is there a lyric that because we were talking about we've been talking about lyrics this whole time. Is there a lyric that really stands out for you? Do I have a favorite lyric. I mean again, it's it's hard to ask me to like it's I guess it's hard to hard to do that because they're so also tied to like different wage. Places in my life circles is so much about my hometown and that's why I had Chris on it boys never cries such a formative about formative experiences for me. What if I is like f one of the darkest night, I feel like I've ever I've ever put out, you know questioning God brushes with suicide like, you know like that how this feels about like a really really real life thing, you know, but actually I'm going to stop being I'm going to stop being that guy and just actually answer the question the first the first thing that popped into my head off when you asked that question was I don't want to spend my twenties tired drunk and alone just to find why I keep you up online on the phone. I know say it's cuz I love to hear the sound of your voice, but it's more accurate to say it's just more clear than the noise. Then I can always kind of took in spite of all that I do is television static playing from another and and also fun fact that's a another National reference which no one will literally ever there the television static thing. It's a reference literally so that long Talked about earlier to the I was a television version. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, but it's television static playing loud from another room to which I've never found the door to go and just turn it off, but I can never stop looking for it. I'm making a choice. Everyone has.

"That Nashville trip, you know. I own second time has come up in this podcast. Yeah, I remember that Nashville trip. Like I saw I saw on Josie Dunne like, you know performing in a lawn is that owners I'm sorry? That's that's one will send. Yeah, nobody. You know, it was Chaz cardigan was there like I saw Josie Dunne like like all you know, these people that were interacting with are going to have you know, these moments in their life and I just I think the way that Chris described as like lightning the bottle was really not just like really apropos. Yeah. Chris is a great talent of them. Yeah the influence me I really like I'm like, I want that feeling I want the feeling that like, I'm seeing these people who are going to change the world just a couple of minutes before they do, you know, I think that is a beautiful beautiful sentiment and that there's such and a lovely optimism in that in that sentiment. But if I have any advice as the old the resident Oldham here is to do not chase that feeling off. Not a thing that exists. It's only thing that that it is this exists in retrospect. Yeah, it's not a real thing to me. I think the and I remember that show and remember that night. That was the first show that I may have been to in Nashville and it was very very recently after I'd moved it was Chris was Chris Martin Yago for those of you in this thing land who are still listening shot was you cuz you're a marathoner water maybe stand up and stretch if you're sitting that's that was the time when Chris Maga was judging the Music City Mayhem and I think the week's one that year. I don't know. But yeah, Chris had Chris Maga had moved here before me and was introduced to many people and at least talking about what I was doing before I moved to Nashville. And so that was the first show where I came home and like was like there was a face of the name sort of and so he decided to take a picture to kind of commemorate that first show and just oh man, we all made it out of Florida were all like doing our thing off. Oh cool, I'm saying none of it had to do with frustrated. None of it had to do with Chris getting a job at Atlantic Martin Yago getting a job at Atlantic. None of it had to do with Chris Klein going on and doing the things that he's doing now up in New York. It was all just like we love each other. I think we kind of all Instinct really knew that that was not all going to laugh like the time was not all going to last. We were all just working together off and kind of sort of struggling together. There's a beauty in that struggle of Tame Impala talks about it and his new record. I think the song is called Lost and yesterday. I can't remember the lyrics specifically but with receiving a quote the thing they don't tell you the struggles of best part, but only kind of yeah, they say that again, I'm sorry, they're doing their thing. They don't tell you is that the struggle is best part but only kind of yeah. Wow. Wow whose that by its Steven Falk is a creator of the show. You're the worst and a couple of other like you worked on orange. Wow, those things. Yo put me on game. Hit me dog. It's a game..

"And now I sound like some conspiracy theorist, but I do believe that music is a service industry and it's not about giving famous or whatever that bullshit is Faith about the moment like for me that band and I always get shipped for this people always make fun of me but I don't care it's stained that man helped me through so so so much like those guys and their lyrics like I never learned to work things out but all we ever do this ever seem to do it. And then I find you here through your eyes as an X is the next lyric of that and I just remember some of those lyrics were just being like wow, that's really really hard feel fam. I Still Lincoln Park follow. Yo link muhs all say anything for me to me wage. Say anything. Yeah, a live in the theory of law. Tell know. Okay? Okay. Okay one. Excellent. That's not be mocking. That's me like a tempting offer. I can't do is it a Max Beeman Max. Yeah. Yeah, I can't do the vocal beautiful this beautiful song called Cemetery, which is about it's somehow it's somehow managed like this song. I'm going to cry manages to to like go into arguments about like after life and religion in the context of like being suicidal but then sort of getting out of it and then like meeting somebody who really just change is your entire Viewpoint even if you don't necessarily agree with them and he does it in three verses and it's like I love that's like the salt like the soft like last verse is Faith is the one who made my disgusting heart from a lump of clay should be asked what got me through should he asked me it was you and then his wife sings on the song. I'm with him at the at the last course. It's just such a heavy it's like how it's like how Karen edits all the Nationals there. Oh, yeah.

"We were struggling with one line like it was we had five minutes left before incidentally Chaz cardigan at the time spouse card again, but Chas cardigan was the next one up. Yeah. He's a good guy. He's great. Yeah, so he was he was coming in. He super nice like he was dead. Kind of kick us out but like, you know, our time was running out we were you know stressing and you come in and know and I both gave each other a look like we gotta keep her cool man, like like like we we both really like this guy we both really like his music, but we need to write this line and we can't give away that we are a little bit star-struck at the moment. We just need we just need to like you just need to like let this go down to like do our job right now and then like as we're like, you know crunching the thing you throw out the line like you have the line and I love it. You're like, you're like, I don't want any credit then you're like, oh I gotta run cuz that's yours baby. Yeah. I mean if if I can contribute a job, but it's good, but it's Charles baby. That's funny. I never I literally that shouldn't literally never crosses my mind. I have a deep fear of being arrogant to be honest. So I don't I feel that don't think about that shit. I just don't even entertain it. It's not it's a modest. It's not a humblebrag. It's like I just don't even entertain it. I don't even let the idea of celebrity in it bullshit into my own name. And so and but I that is to say though the the difficult part about that though is that it often comes across his flip in and off this comes across as like me not caring about how much other people care about a work that I'm involved in and I never made it to seem that way, but I know that intention is different than affect but it's a hard it's hard balance. I think you know, it's like trying to find them. Okay, you can be passionate you could also be knowledgeable. I think there's a stigma around being knowledgeable about something. You know, how often times like ask somebody a question that I know the answer to so I don't come off as like the guy being like did you know like, you know the actually guy? Yeah the actually, you know, but and that's the thing is that that works up until somebody doesn't actually know the thing and then you have to admit you presented a question knowing the answer like, you know, just to sort of sidestep around.

"Have taken that advice like, you know, no one I like kind of had this spark because of this advice that was from a relative stranger at the time. Like I did not know the hell like what's a Halsey you know, and and basically that's that's how we got into all this. So when I saw her again last year, I definitely had like a kind of like like that was that's a full circle like you've change. Life moment, you know like you you literally in a conversation change like the trajectory of my life and that holds, you know holds like a thing. So that's that and then well, so we're working on this like kind of like teen record of it's called different plans because we had plans for other songs, and now we have different plans. And the reason we're doing is cuz we weren't going to put out these songs cuz we're like, oh we have to worry about our campaigns and our releases and like are these seagulls of these whatever and then it just really hit me that there are songs that that like fans and like people and stuff can like connect to that might not get like a million streams, but could be a very significant part of their life and who are we to kind of like hold on to those songs? Because we don't feel like they're going to be massive like like why not why deprive somebody of a song that can actually really help them? I was actually talking to Sarah from transviolet about it that like there are songs that oh wow shots at rennes-le-chateau translate. She like you were saying that like there there are songs that have a dog There's a song they have called bruises that have been very important in people. I know his life despite the fact that it's not their most popular song. So I feel like what Gillian saying like, for example, something was a breakup song Lee when I had like when I had a break up, I was just listening to her live performance of something like on repeat..

"Oh, well, they probably just discovered that on their own and didn't have any contracts for it, but they understand what the word mean and they're using it properly so you're being so to insult them because they are using the word properly but maybe not pronouncing it correctly is to one completely dead. Or the correct usage of that word and the the the implication there and to to essentially just call them stupid innocent because they haven't had the experiences that you have which is down unfair to assume from another person. So I'm only saying all that to say that like I'm glad that your therapy is working. I'm sorry that the Earth and Society has put all these implications on you and made you feel bad for having skills that you have like right that's what that is. Like, it's it's made you feel bad for having skills or developing and parsing through like everything like my my mom was a stickler for grammar like lovely person but a stickler for grammar and at a certain point, I realized like sort of going down the rabbit hole of you know, one hand like creative poetic license as what you can say, but also recognizing like culturally that different different areas and balloon Landings speak on and local isms and have different like, you know have different ways of of a job. Grammar, I was I realized you know language is is a way of of expression if you understand what I'm saying without any like the then somebody who correct your grammar, correct? Your pronunciation is just throwing that in there to a show that they're sort of smarter as opposed to you know, I would I would copy out that though. You're not wrong but I would caveats. Yeah, some people some people the intention is is is really good. Yeah. No, I'm not I don't mean to necessary mean by Intentions by do mean that like if you understand what somebody is saying it's not worth interrupting the conversation and like some like like the train of thought just to sort of make a correction.

"Yeah, like I do it all the time like it's one of those things where it's just it's like and so heartbreaking because you know, that that comes from being told pretty constantly that like, you know that they're wrong for talking that much about something that they're passionate about. But also I you know off Feel very strongly that like like who you are is how you react to either end of extreme pressure like when you are who you when like under absolute pressure because cuz well when you can't like think about anything it's like, where do you do you fall? What do do? But on the other side is like what do you when have nothing but free time, what do you do when nobody's calling the shots or telling you what you need to be doing? Yeah, like what do you do with that time as well? And so I feel like especially in this I didn't I didn't know you were like interested in editing and everything before music. I was a sound editor. So I was doing Foley's home and backgrounds and all that stuff for for film and like editing audio. I went to Florida State in mess with and yeah, so we had a lot of cats from the effort to school there as you know, it's very am sure, you know, it's very decorated. I've definitely I've definitely crunched many a vegetable to make a bone sound. Yeah. That was my job before this and I I watched like, you know, my biggest hobby authors. Say in a sense of this point is like watching television. Like I love TV on my free time. I write scripts and stuff still like I think that that's so yeah, that's I mean that that was a dream of mine before the sort of music thing accidentally happened and that's why like, I've always considered sleeping lion to be more of a cultural project than like a music project which is why there's a podcast which is why there's all this other stuff by really vibed with like what you're saying too because in this time with the quarantine, I've been shocked by how little music I've been making and instead how I have been like leaning into the podcast. I have been leaning into a job writing for fun like TV show reviews just like raving like Alan sepinwall is my hero like he and mind you. He's not a musician..

Well anyways, when yeah, when it grabs him by his foot when it grabs Isaac Hayes by his foot and makes them decide what his best record was no it grabs him and it's so contextual like wage. To be grabbed from almost anywhere that it like almost crushed the Studio's morale and because that particular assignment that particular set-piece was so so difficult to create but they executed a neat and it was amazing, but they have a they have a great sense of and understanding of the universe and what makes it scary and how to keep doing it without having to add to too many of those additional relationships because basically you're alone basically the entire time another great game that does it that is so sorely underrated in the horror genre actually know it's it's people who know about it love it, but I think people don't know enough about it because the previous game was such kind of a pretty dismal failure..

"Hello everybody and welcome to the pocket weekly podcast hosted by yours truly. Regarded what's going on? This week, we have nick great editor in chief of Android back on the show and the two of US talk about a couple of the main stories to come out outside of devices in the first half of this episode. Mainly, the fact that the four big tech giant their CEO's basically put on trial in front of Congress, and we just give some speculation behind all of the antitrust issues that were brought up. But of course given when this episode was recorded in one, it is coming out. One of our main stories is going to be around the oneplus Nord the next couple of weeks are going to be. Really. Crazy. So if you are listening to this right now and you're not following the pocket now weekly podcast in your favorite podcasting APP, make sure you hit that follow button because a lot of stuff is coming up pretty soon Samsung unpacked is next week and as I'm recording this intro, the Pixel for a has been made official. We don't quite have our units yet We're still working on that, but you can rest assured that both pocket and myself over on my channel we'll have content coming up very soon on the new affordable pixel device. But for now enjoyed this episode between me and Nick Graha Fan droid. I don't understand how you haven't had this setup already for podcasting and whatnot. We've had you on the show a bunch and you only just today to do this. Well I mean we have been podcasting over instagram live so it's not like it's the best setup anyways because you're using a smartphone to record. So have the real camera out now and yes, I don't know if you can hear it in the background, but my laptop is. On overdrive because I have the camera software transmitting to Ob yes, and then s transmitting to are streaming platform now. So my laptop, the fans are like. which which laptop is it just my own curiosity. Why make book thirteen pro Okay hopefully it doesn't like. Yeah. It's you seem fine right now but I've tried doing oh bs on facebook pros before and honestly in just in laptops in general and I've had mixed results. So yeah, I mean this one's the year and a half old. It's the laptop that I do all my four K. video editing on. So we handle four K. video editing I'm hoping it will keep up with this but yeah, it is. Turning away, keeping those fans boosted up not to the Max about middle. I feel like. Since you just. Go. No. Okay. I thought I. saw that my over here stopped going. But I think. Okay. Cool. A little bit of a background thing and this is kind of on a personal note I'm actually really excited because. Half, because of the opportunity that pocket now has provided me but also because I've just been making the effort to move into other categories. You just mentioned laptops. I'm really excited because it looks like all doing some pretty awesome laptops coming up and can't wait because. It's nice to get away from smartphones once in. Awhile. It is it is I. Mean I've done. I haven't done that many laptops. I've done a handful of chromebooks. Pixel. Book. And I have an MSI laptop here that I need to review once we get through this. Wave of smartphones and I have some extra time because as you know there, there is no extra time right now with all the devices that are coming out. Speaking of that. This is not one of our main topics for the show. It's part of our low check in here. I sent you that link right that Google's using the hell out of everybody right now. What is rolling everybody? Yeah. What exactly is this like? That's Latin. Right. That's on the page. Well, it's it's the usual filler text that you have on a dummy website. The our Laura them. And they essentially created a dummy page for an upcoming smartphone but they tweaked the wording just a little bit because there are words that seemed to imply smartphone type. Things like just the in the title there's The low light. Low Light Teneh Cap Kerem megapixel lum long lasting. Is that Vaccari, up yeah. So like in in the link description, you sent me here in Telegram I. If you read that out, that's in the page description. So like they they played a little bit around with it just to. Make It look like they've done a little bit extra effort than just slapping some some fake words in there as dummy place holders but because I. Think, of Pixel for a is coming sometime soon who knows we've been saying that from what? Since quarantine four months since? I I actually wrote an article about two three weeks before. Google before it was cancelled. Saying Google might actually launch it before I o based off of some of the leaks that we were we were seeing and that one turned out to be wrong the Oh, the Hubris of the publication. Gosh. All my gosh. That's why as the one of the reasons why I'm happy where I, I am in my little pocket of Youtube because. I. I don't have to do the rumors and whatnot I know that that's a common portion of Tech U2 is to be like Oh what are we going to look forward to I'm like what the thing is nothing is confirmed. Why would I talk about? What's an unconfirmed? Deals with that on the daily does all members and all that. So I mean I may covers it really well with the pocket now daily and honestly I'm like. Didn't you just cover this yesterday? You've done it like four days in a row. But Hey, there was leaks and news stories for days in a row about features and specifications that are coming up on a new device and on. After awhile you know writing for publication and writing tech media for years now I am so tired about writing leaks and. Rumors and speculation articles because. It's just a repeat of the same story last week with one extra

A Rosenberg by Any Other Name?

"I'm Jason La Steak and I'm really excited to welcome Geraldine. Good a fan and Kirsten from left to the podcast today. To talk about Kirsten's book a Rosenberg by any other name. A history of Jewish name changing America Josie could offend. It's a scholar of modern your studies currently teaching at American University. She received her. Phd In history from Brandeis University in two thousand eighteen and her research is focused on migration gender and the intersection of law and religion in French. American Jewish history. And we're also joined of course by Kirstin from Agla who's an associate professor at Michigan State University's Department of History her book Rosenberg by any other name. Which we're GonNa talk about today explores the history of name changing in the US in the twentieth century and her first book American Dreams and not nightmares looked at secular Jewish intellectuals. Use of the Holocaust in the early nineteen sixties. Thanks Jason I'm Geraldine. I'm very excited to talk with Kirsten today about her book on Jewish name changing in the United States. I was really fascinated to read Christian books because he deals with so many different things. And one thing that really stood out is the question of the types of economic and social anti-semitism that juice faced in the twentieth century. And this is a story that has been obscured both in how American Jews tell their own story and how they really name changing itself. But it's also a topic that has been obscured largely in the history of American Jews. And so a lot of the discussion with Kirsten really centered on the question of how everyday life of Jews in America were is shaped by anti-semitism and how American Jews del their own story in their recounting of how juice change their names in the twentieth century. I hope you'll enjoy this conversation. Kirsten hiding for joining the Jewish history matters podcast. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited so I actually wanted to start with a joke. That's awesome so it's actually a French. Joke offense Jewish joke as I understand it. So it's a story of Mister Meshu Shoe Katzman. We'll goes to the French authorities in the early twentieth century because he wants to change his name. A finds that cats minis for to foreign sounding Fort Jewish sounding so he asked no. Would it be possible to change the name and the French official tells him yes? Sure Okay so what's your name Katzman. So he breaks cats on into to any asked him. So what does that mean in German and the Jewish men says it means Shah Cat in English Okay what does men mean and the men answers it means lum the men so essential official says okay. Katzman you are no no longer cats men but shallow brilliant. It is marvelous because it's really about how your revealing I see in the process of trying to conceal it as you say in the book. Jewish name changing is no laughing matter. We have a lot of jokes involving name changing but it is in fact a very serious topic and so I wanted to start the conversation by asking you why it is such a serious topic and also what do you mean by name changing because I think the readers need to understand what that meant in the American context so the first thing that's really important to say is I only looked at one archive when space for name changing which was official name changing in civil court. It wound up being incredibly rich space. But there's lots of other places in lots of other ways that people could change their names for example. When I started talking about my work I had immigration. Historians say but this is not the only kind of name changing that happens if immigration memoirs you can see and I teach for my students memoirs where people decide to change their name on the shop floor. You know all the people they work with at the sweatshop. I'll sit around and spend the day talking about what your new American names should be. There's definitely kind of informal name changing people sort of take on names and the US among if not the than among the most flexible places in name changing you can really informally. Change Your name to anything. You want without any kind of permission or official status whatsoever. And it's legal this Anglo American law that the US actually took it even to a greater extent in England in some ways on sort of informal name changing people's selecting names because they like them because it sounds good. Those actually are are themselves legal so people can really change their names to anything so because I was using official name changes in city in civil court. I was looking at people who chose to do so officially who chose to be having the state know about their name changing and so- choosing to look at official name. Tinging meant that I was also looking not just at the state it wound up meaning also that I was looking at other kinds of people who might be interested in your name private employers or universities or other kinds of places and spaces where they might these surveillance you. I think maybe watching you questioning. Why your name looks different from one place from the other? What I saw gave us a real insight into the impact of the anti-ageing and the importance of it which is actually kind of your second question right. Why is this important? Why is it serious? A lot of what I've found in the archives. I mean I think a lot of people would have found it boring people's reasons for changing their names if you didn't spend a lot of time looking at them. They were very boring. I want to change my name because it's hard to spell because it's hard to pronounce equal can't remember it. It's hard to say on the telephone. You know a lot of sort of things like that so you had to kind of read through the lines but also some sad stories people who would talk about being excluded in the military people who talked about their employer telling them they had to change their name when they got promoted people who wanted to erase memories of having escaped Germany during World War Two. There are a lot of those sad stories and in other kinds of readings. I did oral history is that I did. It's not always you know. Sort of a tragedy. But there's a lot of lingering sadnesses there's a lot of lingering ambivalence and I think the larger part of the story is people feeling like they had to do this. Some of the interesting part of looking at the state and the government's interest in doing this right and sort of making name changing available to people so easily right so readily you can change your name. Go ahead and change. Her name is volunteerism. The circumstances under which they're changing their names are not free and open they are constrained. They are significantly constrained not forcibly coerced. But they are constrained and sometimes they are being asked to or told to change their names by employers by military officers by defense industry contractors by people who kind of represent some kind of power and have interactions with Stay or certainly with their possibilities of getting a job and living in America. I think it's interesting that everybody's treated this so much as a joke that no scholar studied it. You know which I find really interesting right. That people have so far. Brush this and treated it as something that was not serious that was insignificant or Hurace. Something that was not really important so you actually mentioned the state a few times so I wanted to ask you about the state. What's at stake in controlling names and name changes from a state perspective so the federal government begins asking about name tinges voluntarily on Naturalization Petitions in nineteen of Sex. It is voluntary. It's just a line on your naturalization petition so I only did a very limited look at naturalization petitions but I found at least a few where somebody clearly had changed their name so that it looked very different but clearly the people setting this out that they didn't fill out a name change like the government didn't see this change in spelling as actually being a change in name. So there's a certain amount of laxity that European grants are being treated with in their ability to change their names so my story more begins with really World War One and then especially the Inter war period and World War Two and it spirals as the welfare state as the government begins to be concerned with issues of security and be concerned that the people standing in front of whatever federal worker may not be who they size so one of the most important things I think that leads to the nineteen forties in particular being. Sort of the place. Where you see. More of these official petitions being submitted than any other time in the twentieth century is that the government decides that during World War Two. It actually happened in nineteen ninety eight. They begin having defense. Contractors require birth certificates on so they can ensure the safety of their defense plates. So you see beginning in the nineteen thirties forties this kind of spiraling new. People start to have to produce their birth certificates in order to get jobs to become a part of the war effort which is where the jobs are happening and then as people begin to register for the draft or as they begin to be officers they are getting inconsistent right. It's not I don't think this is every single person who goes to apply to become an officer or to register for the draft or even to try to work for the defense industry but what you get is just more and more people who are getting defense contractors or officers or rotc people or whoever saying. Oh your name doesn't match you know you're going to have troubles you know you need to come back. And produce a birth certificate that matches so some of this is about security right security as the country is going to war and I think some of it is just about the government beginning to look to documents. They are trying more during the welfare state especially during the war to keep track of. Who's who I didn't see a lie. That was necessarily pushed by the Alien Registration. Act But that is something that is starting to begin to question people who have not become citizens yet so my gases that is playing a sub textual role in some people's decisions to do this. The state is beginning to keep track of people and so this kind of very open ended name policy which was working really to sort of bring white immigrants into the country and enfold them seamlessly as the US goes to war as it begins to offer benefits like welfare benefits but also especially as it begins to go to a second war it begins to want to keep track of people and it's using names as part of that way of kind of keeping track of
