Or you know. I'm wondering if these things will change the expectation. Yes or still in twenty years. You know a someone like me who is essentially an emotional coward. It's still coming i think. The expectations are shifting. But i don't think. I think the unfortunate thing is is that history still exists and the documentation of history slowly greece. So people were still like what my grandfather did it. Like this and tradition says in my family we do it like this and so many people still value all that stuff that it does complicate your ability to just be like fucking you know.

I wouldn't be like. Can we sit down and talk about the potential for marriage and our future relationship next. He's making one of those jokes you can be like. Are you forever real.

Who's in charge of you. Just shut the fuck up take it and then when you get to the new job you tell them bad stuff about the lady that recommended you. That's accurate i have a feeling. This person is either white and or like upper middle class. Some some combination of wouldn't that wouldn't they be used to just holding their feelings in no then in that case they're like i should say something as opposed to all of us who've had jobs where like to shut my fucking mouth because i need this job right right like i.

It sucks or you have to make a moral choice and be like. It's i should tell this person about themselves. It's it's more. It's a bigger imperative for me to tell this woman about herself than it is. I don't think it is that at least based on the description. She's just like yeah. This ladies canavan knowing and sal i. She's doing the right thing. She's a monster. She just isn't great so you could show i mean what does she is. What does she's like like the dog. Parker the bird-watching park like talking calling the cops on black men or something like that.

'cause you're like we never liked each other as an and the reason why i'm inclined to agree with you about her is because i don't know how you dislike a five year old child and that's picking up all the things that i'm not even putting down correctly is is she very much was like opposed to the idea of my existence. Because i was my you know from various relationship and so any adult that enters a situation with a grown man. Who has a kid is like.

"We do something different. Try anything pause. Was sam j. Hbo like referencing that. But it's like there's like besides besides sam show like how like there's a few others i think did he did a monologue. That was just straight up. Stand up and i thought that was bad. That was pretty cool. I do remember pete's show at the time being a version of groundbreaking when it it sort of launched. I think you know the further we get from these things the more they start to just look like little dots but at the it was like yo his shits is different is kind of weird in like up close in a way that other late night shows weren't and now you know it's yeah we're with with pause. I think that was our main goal was like. I don't think she's gonna look good behind a desk. So let's figure out a way to make it feel fun. Kurt thrive in. It really felt like we were crashing. A comedian party which was right. Like all those interstitial with them. And i'm like there's bestselling samsung what you're pointing out like. Wait who's oh. Oh oh yeah. I've seen that person on the lineup. Okay okay like newer new york comedians. That somebody's these girls which i use for all genders young girls. This raise these young girls out here. Grl's g. u. r. url s. Exactly yeah so wait okay. So did you have serious relationships before nikki. Like like when you think like serious like did you have any or yeah. I think i in a very unfortunate Sense i think. I am a serial monogamist where like i tend to find myself in longer versions of relationships and there was a period. I think you know a few years. Before where i was just out around town dogging out but for the most part i've like done a year year and a half two years with people for over and over again don't always great. It is great. Not that's good. Were you in them just to be in those relationships or like were you. Were you committed in that. I guess i guess my question is were you afraid to be alone. Did you just need someone to keep the bed sheets. Warm i think the answer that i probably would have given then is no i think. In retrospect i think there's probably a level of truth to that. I don't think that i was like dino lead like sitting at home. When i have to have somebody right. That's i don't think that's my instinct. I'm pretty good at being alone. But i do also think that i was thinking about my life and and what i wanted to be in represent and all these other things in a relationship at times felt like it would service that feeling and that's not necessarily why you should like you said did andy. It's you sort of. Just meet a person. you're like. Oh chemistry chemistry. Not just i can kick it with you for a while. And there's a big difference and it takes us a minute as adults to just figure out what that difference is. Yeah like it's definitely experience thing it's not like there's like a first of all. There's no class at school where it's like. Hey this is this is what's gonna feel here at love. Doubts on my teachers knew that feeling ever but allowed drag them. No i think that's one hundred percent true and it's why don't trust people like trusses waited worth. I have trouble with people like yeah. I met my high school sweetheart and we just stayed together forever and never had any downs like none. You ain't never go like vulgar. Might not even be it for for anybody much less me. I know i know it's funny though. I believe in like checking in on yourself in relationships in a negative way. But i'm very much like to me relationship something you have to choose every day and every now and then i'm just like am. I still happy aseel. Happy like just like myself. There's sometimes you'll be like i still love you. I do and that was a good check in. She did he checked in and she was like status. Update we're doing fine. I also to one of my big fears. Because i watched too much true crab not necessarily he will murder me but the sudden change in a lover shrinking that you are okay and then having someone come to you and be like actually i would like to kill you for the shirts and like i'm always telling andy where i'm like if you ever feel like you don't wanna be with me like my never. Don't cheat on me leave me. Please leave me please. Don't you dare go try to have a side piece. You talk about germs. Like could you please like lean gave me you have to. Yeah it's it's it's tough i think I always think about in. This is weird. But i always think about Tim robbins and susan sarandon right like they were together like twenty years at some point. They were like now. We can't keep doing this. You you and i are not meant to be together and i know at the time and this is maybe the internet being whatever the fuck the internet is everybody was like. This is terrible. If they can't make it what's going to happen to me and blah blah bias. Like you'll but they did it. They beat the they did the thing they kept checking in much. In the way you're saying and at some point the status wasn't coming back fine or good or any of those things was like. Yeah we gotta move on and twenty years is a full relationship you beyond the game you you made it to the end and maybe we just need to be more okay with the possibility that like relationships have a lifespan. They have a limit that they can go. And sometimes that's forever. And i hope it is in in my case in your cases but then maybe it's not in. That's okay to your enemy. This is until the grave. That's not fair that's fair and if you hurt. Her faster was there. Was there one of those guys. I've never been that. Investment like celebrity couples Did when when. Danny devito and carla rhea perlman when deputy and re perlman separated. I think they might be back together but when they separate that there was a little bit of like is are any of these things permanent do do either. You have one of those trying to think i can't. I don't have a person. That's like conscious. A relationship. That i i will say though as i get more and more in this business and i think about relationships like i always i never liked was somebody is like married or in a relationship and then they like kind of get famous and then they get like hot young thing regardless of gender race. Not say it's like little he's like. Oh i see you basically leveled up your basically like abbie new partner now and that really upsets me even know these people just like what grade is is a personal attack whether you intended there. Yeah i get that feeling. I feel like the person when i tend to go with the answer. That pops in my head i even. If it's not the correct answer the when you ask the question the first thing that popped in my head was robert deniro in his wife his life. I know grace hightower. I didn't know her name but it was just like that. Cool black lady. A robert deniro together. That's a cool story. And then you find out that like oh shit. Robert has moved on. Oh bobby's ed you know.

I think i was working for a fucking moving company and also teaching kaplan classes like she wasn't wrong An evil hearst never forgive but she wasn't necessarily wrong in that instinct year but she probably feel bad now. You'll ask television on television. And you know she was like own. Shit i should. I hope she feels terrible. Our bowel movements are difficult. Every time it sounds like a car neckline most johnny carson would do this character and he would always make these like really like arcane kind of like insult to people like him. I hope a sick yak leaves a present in your drawer. Okay your sock drawer. See him no johnny carson. I don't either. People don't know references to comedians. Passed away when you were six. I'm never really maybe this is. I think this is just maybe thing that probably black comedians into more often than than not never gave a fuck about late night and everybody revered like oh carson letterman and all you have to watch these old near genius. The thing that they do like i like when conan does that hip thing otherwise. I'm i'm chilling on late night. It's boring yeah. I definitely felt. I've always wanted. It was so funny. Because conan did his lascaux is like everybody else social media. Which is you addressing him. Which is all these things about like i. I saw the first time. I saw. I was in and i was like by good decided realize he touched. Somebody lives twenty five years. Or i just didn't have a good picture of me with him. I had of him. And pete home show but like i didn't have any post i'll never forget. Cut my face out and put it over pete's face that's the way to do it. I will say he was my favorite. I think he's i do genuinely think he's brilliant and really think he's just the funniest guy is just that format to me was never liked interesting enough to be like deeply bought in is just like all right. Yeah he's the funny one and the other guys are i guess. N- fine nineteen fifties format. I don't know why it took until the last couple of years you'd be like should.

"Who how will i go. None of that should just like yo. She's fun this is a great hang. And i think i was in a place in my life. Which i'm i'm a firm believer that this is more of the difference maker than anything. Is that if you are in a place in your life where you are willing to try to make a relationship happen adler much more likely to actually be able to make something happen. As opposed this nebulous place. Of like if i meet the right one maybe i'll do. It counted thing it was like nah. I'm i'm down to get a baby boo so she seemed cool. Let's see if this is it that makes sense. I do a lot of it almost half the battle is just the person wanting to be in the relationship and then if you just happen to walk by the right time you could be the one you in. That makes feel real. Pretty when i tell her that. All buddy general like with guys. Like i like andy like humor in ready to have a relationship where you were i wor- i work very like i were indeed. Well yeah 'cause. I had my shit not figure it out but i was on the path to like being happy and so just being on that path in the first place like open me up to be happy and other areas host to just like when i was like even in college when i thought well yeah i didn't i didn't i was compromised. I was constantly compromising right. With what i wanted to do. I say this a lot but make sure but like i was compromising between what i really want to do which was again. I couldn't even admit it to myself but like comedy in some way and what my parents wanted me to do. Which was lawyer doctor right. And i constantly like finding something in between those two things like philosophy professor that's the white inbetween read. It was high professor but silly. I did jokes. Yeah so so then do you in the in the case of the relationship where you then like were you acknowledging that with with naomi with with everyone around you or was this just a private consenting in your head where you're like now i'm ready to be a big boy and do the i wasn't conscious. I mean it wasn't like to therapy and could actually like articulate these things that i could go back and be like oh right okay so the fact that i could you know with women before i would always wait to it was safe to. I knew they liked me to like make a move and what they owe me. I was the first time where i was like. Oh no i like her. I'm gonna make the first. I'm gonna like ask her out. Even if had a weird way that like asked her out facebook but like it was a long time ago. Man doesn't nine babies. You did you poker did you hit. It was so funny though. Because like we but i will say this right now when you say that about being who you wanted to be kind of being you know we met right so we met at a time when you were like. I'm a comedian. Now and oh look. I'm meeting a girl in the comedy space. It's like okay. this is it. You know what i mean like. It was kind of in line with the community. You wanted to be a part of the part that career you wanted to pursue kind of worked in that way. I mean now langston chemistry and there was a thing where i'm like you listen to the commissioner like zipping your zaps but like you had like this fun night and i'm sure that was also part of that kind of like. Oh this is fun. We we have chemistry and you until you have chemistry with someone. You don't really realize how rare it is Oh shit all those other relations no offense to my other girlfriends but like i liked them but right. No i think that's one hundred percent. Sure i think that like you. And that's part of why these questions are so often difficult to answer is like i don't know i just didn't like them other ladies i. I don't have like a precise way of articulating. What the differences. But you know. I've spent time with a lot of great people who truly the vibe wasn't there and that's not a reflection of them being a bad people but they're probably not right or meet writing right but now you what i what i always love about your relationship what i find so interesting is like and i remember the very first time i saw. You do. stand up some brickland bar hunting. We were in the back of someplace real dinging but at the time. And you were. You were a substitute like you might have been visiting even new york at the time and you didn't live there but you're you're talking about being a substitute teacher. I used to be a full time teacher. Okay then okay. I was say substitute. And i wish i would have been able to sustain a life on doing sub word. That would solve so many of my problems but now i was a fulltime teacher. And that's probably true when we met i probably. I may not have been a fulltime teacher anymore. If i was visiting new york i was because i was living in boston. And at the time If i was like In new york. I was working more like A test. I was teaching kaplan class. Oh yes fifty. Sat prep in jeddah. I did that. Yeah i did. Sat's injuries yeah okay. Gre seems to because you're working with like adults than like reasonable human beings. Sat feels a little more depending on where they place you at least can be a real pain in the ass. It was just rough. Because like i also like i was trying to tell the students that like. I'm sorry that you have to take these tests. That they are not like i would. I would tell them the truth. These are standardized for like white upper middle class. People and i like you should not feel bad if you're not getting it i'm going to try to teach you some of the stuff bipolar. Don't beat yourself up because the ida very different instinct. I get your black ass in their goddamn test. No they did not. I worked cool teacher. I feel like you would at least a time when you were like teaching. What grade did you teach. I taught full-time ninth eleventh and twelfth grade english okay except for those. Those pests on tenth graders. I taught everybody. Were you cool. The kids like you. They did like me. I i think the thing you find out is you think you're cool and they kind of think you're cool but that's very temporary that at the point that you do something that they don't like you ain't a cool teacher anymore. You just ma fargo. They're talking shit about in the hallway all the cool teacher because they're younger than everybody else. Like twenty four. When i got my first teaching job and so i was younger and i looked more their age and i knew their references. We listen to the same music and shit like there was a bond in that sense. But then you assign a homework assignment and they don't do it and you give them my f- in their life that any really ain't cool leaves the naslund's like nah. I'm just. I'm just trying to make it through this dog not gonna let some sixteen year old. Who doesn't like reading ruin my life but we listen to kid sister. Yes like there's no bond here. We just happened to old enough. We might be in the same club but you're not so shut up stupid but when did you always know you wanted to be a comedian actor because you are married to a professional woman. She's a professional woman out here working. You know and. I think you've done well for yourself. Your book busy blessed but obviously it's a journey like was that always the intent when y'all got together were you like. Hey this is it. I'm going to need you to subsidize me for a little bit i. I had the good fortune of meeting her. After i had already kind of started doing stuff like i. I didn't meet nikki Broke met her sort of on the come up. I was still teaching the kaplan classes. But like i was like a few months out from the insecure pilot. Lifetime then you know adam devine in fucking The oscars like there were a few things that sort of followed that immediately affirmed the argument. I was making that..

Who who only drink in fuck each other's wives but damn do they drill. Yeah like you see the executive being like well. They're drillers for the best drillers executive when they're the best watch. Michael clarke duncan walk in slow motion. You'll see able to. But i just i want this on record. We most cursed recording that. Oh my god. We're star-crossed wrote you. In april. I kept dropping the ball. And then mabel got sick and started peeing everywhere. The naomi got sick and started peeing everywhere. Let me say. I don't wanna put that much responsibility on you all that you you were very kind to skip over my antics. But i had one point was scheduled to record with you while i was in new york and the night before we had wrapped shooting on a pause was sam j and i went out. I'm usually behind the camera. I'm not doing anything. But i finally like went out drinking with them and left my backpack which included all of my lake. Oh my laptop. My sound equipment. Everything in it at a bar then went to that bar to recover it thinking. Oh yeah i'll get it. I'll show up. And i'll still be able to record with y'all it wasn't at that and then i spent like literally a day and a half trying to track down said backpack which i did eventually on god. Oh my where was it. A very kind person in the production of the show gathered everybody's drunken Like grow remaining things and brought them back to his house so hero true heroes along with the strength to carry all your shit. Do you wanna shout that person out right now on the pod. The wrong instinct. I we eventually fired. That person for unrelated things. I feel bad name is bruno. He's a lovely man. Saves my life and i would've kissed him on the mouth if it weren't cove it but otherwise he was going to get a pack battle smooch smooch. I was saying that my goal was really to get underneath. I said i wanna get a deal under the surface with likes to see if i can dig deep because you know i think of you is such a cool customer. You're cool customer. You're like look even when you talk like that excited likes yes. Maximum his peaked. Exactly why i think this is. This is my happy excitement. Excitement gets real high and everybody is very jarred. By the fact that i i lose my shit constantly on on my peers and my family. I'm a yeller at home. And that's bridge with my wife. I'm sure of it. what are you. That's very surprising. So you're yeller at home like what's the kind of stuff we talking like. What would trigger yell. How small if something will trigger a yeah like. I don't know that. I probably am exaggerating when i say i'm a yeller at home mostly because we're recording and i don't want this documented but i do think i think we one of the things that we argue about probably most often is my wife has attended c- to finish my thoughts for me like i'll i'll be saying thing and she'll be like yeah. You're saying this. I that'd be. I know that's not what i'm saying. I'm gonna say it the way i was gonna finish in. Let me get my idea on. She's like okay. Go ahead and then sometimes it is what she said and that makes me angry is just. we're communication. Yeah now does that to me. But it's more like she's just trying to like because i'm a little a little verbose languid with my speech Floored sometimes and she's like fucking wrap it up. I get where you're going. Come on get to the period. Yeah but it's like nah. I worked really hard on this sentence. Let me know what i mean. Yeah yeah. I didn't read the sars for nothing. We all know how huckleberry finn ends but let me tell my version saying yeah. I have a rafting trip to talk about. That is very racially sensitive. How did you and your wife meat. Because i also think she's a cool customer and by that. I mean like when y'all are very mellow she's like a little soft spoken meaning like she like you have to really listen. He's not here yelling for you. Hoes okay you have to release that you have to focus and then i'm just like i like your outfit. Will you be my friend. Hello dami mike. Well that's fine. That's what i'll take. I'll take it but she's a big fan of yours. I for mostly if that's clearing swoon. Her behavior shame on her because she loves your comedy loves you as a person that said We met through a mutual friend. Who i went to undergrad with and nikki did teach for america with and that person was then living in chicago. I went back home to visit my family. Nikki was visiting our friend. We hung out one night. Made out in the club and then I spent the next like three months trying to convince her to keep hanging out with me. Despite the fact that i was living in new york and she lived in baltimore. Wow i remember you. Guys were long distance and i didn't realize it was like that that you met separately but also how honestly that's all i ever wanted when i made out to bars for them to. Then how do.

India i've been catching up on past episodes for a big dramatic reason. I'll get into and wanted to say. Thank you to both you and ricky lindholm for the episode. She was on ricky listening over the course of the first six months of this year. I bought my first house with my husband. Sold the house and got a divorce. Who has a busy six. My now ex dropped the bomb on me. Two months into having a house that he's actually been unhappy for a while and after one whole day of trying to talk through our issues. He said he wanted a divorce. This was completely out of the blue for me. There were honestly no real red flags. He apparently had a crippling inability to communicate and covered that. With the everything's fine mask. He truly did not appear to be that kind of unhappy. Getting my life together took a little time and finally listening to the episode with ricky. Last week gave me an incredible amount of peace. I couldn't figure out the words to describe what was so wrong about the man. My ex turned out to be. But ricky said it perfectly when she said you have to find someone who is not emotionally week. That couldn't recover from disappointment would make the week decisions and can't take care of themselves. It struck me to the point that i backed up and listen to that advice five times. I've finally saw. We actually is instead of the mask. I had falsely thought he was being able to define the underlying issue. Really helped me organize my feelings. I thank you both for all the great nuggets of wisdom. You shared along the way and for creating this place of funny. People sharing their troops and wisdom. I look forward to your new episodes and my brighter future. Hope- hopefully find someone in the future. Who actually misses this bit. Yes you yes you will. I am so proud of you.

But like i can't even imagine i know i can't imagine but you know what it's a true blessing that this person finally showed you who they were. You know timing terrible part of somebody being trashed daytime. It's never gonna be great trash but honestly you're doing great. I'm so glad that ricky and by sending us could help leaves ricky.

Why Culturally Relevant Teaching Is Important
"To this episode. Let's dive right into it. So one of the think about culturally responsive teaching. I define. It is being attuned and acknowledging students diverse backgrounds. Educating them with the lens that there heritage background and cultural assets are advantages and can enhance their education and having a worked in urban schools. I see that students already possess a genius within them because of their diverse backgrounds and because of the cultural assets that they bring to the classroom and it is up to me to us as the teacher or teachers to facilitate a nurture this genius within the children that we teach and i was made aware of this time and time again in my teaching i saw a second grade poetry lesson using a poem by langston us and the students were able to dissect and find hidden meaning within this boy without a lot of prompting. It'd be difficult for the students to have this kind of insight to have this kind of critical thinking but they were able to dissect it to break it down honest and understand it without me. Having to prompt them and realize how much of a genius students have when they can bring their backgrounds cultural assets their experiences to the classroom culturally responsive

"Okay. This is the twelfth episode of our third season of newcomers. We're working our way through tyler. Perry body of work for the first time with the help appearing scholars super fans and sometimes people who've contributed this season is fifteen episodes. So there's literally no way we can get just no way. There's i mean. I would literally be doing this for twenty hours a day so we wouldn't be. It would take much longer than at the combination of time. It's taken tyler. Perry to make all of these things watch so we can say that we have experienced another film within the medea cinematic universe it's medina's witness protection from two thousand twelve and we'll be watching more movies and tv shows in the weeks to come before we jump into that any final thoughts on the ruthless pilot from last week that we watch. I'm i still sam by. It was not as exciting as the oval or the other movies. We've watched. But i did watch the second episode to see who sent me the picture. Yeah the like whatever guy the head of the colts. It was so disappointing. You're like he lives in a world market like it was it was truly like they went to world market and they were like. We're not gonna buy stuff. We just wanna shoot in world market so hard. I don't wanna watch that show ever again. But i do. Oh yeah the highest the highest. I do need to watch The oval and i know you're watching the oval. And i'm really jealous you posted in your instagram story that there was a beheading on the ovilla which is unsolved be heading. The first daughter throws herself out of a moving car. That's going to miles an hour and then the first lady goes. This bitch really jumped out of that car. That bitch jumped out of the car. And i was like. That's your response to your daughter jumping a moving car. The it's perfect. I love it so much. And then the way they clean up this beheading. Flip the mattress. And that's not. You can't do that. You gotta get a brand new mattress. It's like it's like the woman from the pilot right that he's she's like your horace yes they said i get a plus one then. Her head is just sitting in the bed. makes it up like what. Why did he pick it up. Like didn't he think it was connected to her body and he was going to like hold her like what is happening. He thought he was going to kiss her. And i in the world that we have made it like up to kiss pigs there. He's like No one's scores out everywhere he's covered in blood and then kyle who's trying to become like the head of the secret service. Guess he comes in. He's like i. I don't clean this up. What did you take. And he's like some molly and then he throws away this huge plate of cocaine. And i guess molly as like you gotta save that for another time and a president is walking like his because he picked up a dead woman's head and then they toss her head in this laundry basket. And i was like tyler you what but see. This is a pisses me off. Because i knew that happened in the oval from your stories and then i was excited for this movie on. This movie does not deliver in any of those ways. Which we we've been getting used to. How crazy all of these are shows so well before we get into it. So medina's witness protection is available on. Hbo max you can record it on filo and you can also watch it for a fee on apple tv. Google pay and voodoo spoil. It so watch it. I if you care about that But i think we were both disappointed by madonna's reduction and we've been we've been loving every so because i want to hear what he thinks about this i we we have been so into the season so far and i was like. I was feeling pretty excited to watch. My friend even was like. Oh that's a good one. And i don't know how i feel. That's big dipper saying he likes this one. We can't trust dipper saying that. This is good too. I truly now. I'm questioning anytime. he said. Anything has been good well. His taste is questionable. Which i would love to discuss with him at a further point we he. He likes to watch bad stuff. You so i mean he's he fits right in but let's bring our guest out. I want to hear it. Our guests things about this show were so excited. It's langston kerman. Langston median writer. Actors was appeared on series including insecure and south side. He currently hosts the podcasts. My mama told me for big money players network. I heart radio so welcome langston An exciting yes langston. Thank you so much for being here. Let's get into it. Have you watched any tyler. Perry before i head and i actually vowed never to do it again. You all forced me to know so far is in force me to ask. I had made a firm stance in my life. That like. I'm gonna get that. Toxic man out of here is our like nope. You're going to do it for a bit long running doing over the course of a season. So would you seen before. If you remember i believe my my last straw was daddy's little girls. I finally put my foot down hours like if this is the best he can do. I'm out. yeah we like that one. That was going to say. I think it's his most. I think at least critically acclaimed film is the one that i think stands stands on the firmest ground is far as being considered a film industry. That is true. I think that's true. But i but i also think that movie had like a lot of weird. There's always a surprise raped or that wasn't a radio. You know accusation like that one was our first you dip into that sort of thing dramatic. No no ha ha funny. It's not really yourself the top to herself in a very serious thank top. That's the shift that tyler perry sort of creates his his union. So had you seen this witness protection movie. Before i had not i i was not going to see it. I in fact was was devastated to find out how many people consented to be a part of this project. What are your initial thoughts on witness protection. Well i think I think there's a part of me that wants to believe he tried his best. And then i know that's not true. You know what i mean like. I didn't put his best foot forward. I i was excited. That romeo miller is finally getting his his just do it was heartbreaking to see what would point eugene levy head sort of sunk to in his career. That was so confusing to me. Because i thought eugene levy would definitely elevate this movie whatever it was gonna be. I was like it'll be really funny when he's doing his thing him interacting with medina. I thought it'd be funny. We tend to like media show. But but i was like i. He didn't even get a chance even in the bloopers i was like. There's not enough silliness happening. There's there's no it isn't like the freedom to play really felt like you know one thing we've learned by doing the show. Is that like tyler. Perry works extremely fast. Fooding full movies in eight days like aps made a full series of television which is insane full movie in eight days. You all have been in plenty of films you know. That films are are months months at a time. It is shooting entire film..
"langston" Discussed on WGN Radio
"Here with Sally Langston, Who's a private detective? Her own private detective Agency of Viper Private Detective agency now, Okay, So, Sally, some someone comes to you and says, I think my wife is cheating on me. What are the tools that you have is a private investigator that you can use to make a determination as to whether or not that's true? Well, you know, Every case is different. You know that for me listening to the client Lot of detective Don't listen to my clients. I like to get into Just asking all the right questions. You know? What have they been up to? What's changed? What's going on? I do have tools. I have GPS tracking it don't play in the gray area. There's always the contract involved with me. Um, I'm not going to be going and putting it on just anybody's car. You have to own that vehicle. So, uh, I've been in the business over 20 years and, uh, not going to break any laws or lose my license over it. So We know I know you know this, but we can't really play with anything as far as audio video is is open. A lot of clients asked me to look and peer in people's windows. That is natural Egal. Um it's cute because people are just like, Yeah, I don't I don't you I don't care. Just be. Just just shove that camera in there and I'm like I can't do it. You know, it's funny because I did work at a time where I was able to film inside windows and it was you had to be so many feet on a public property s o money feedback and the cameras were so good. You know you were able to get that stuff inside the windows. Much of your time to be a private detective. Now it Z like you're Ah, sluice your back to the old days, knocking on doors. It's not as easy as it used to be. And the laws protect people's privacy to some degree, unless you're in a place that You know, you don't have that expectation of privacy like an opening a restaurant or somewhere outside, But you know, you bring up a really good point. People think I'm just going to tap the phone or I'm going to record his conversation. And that's not legal. But it is legal to videotape without consent. Which is true. It's pepper, you know, like in a bathroom, sure, but right, but that audio, it's you. I mean, Illinois has some of the strictest rules and it is a two person complies. So both parties have to be aware for it to be legal. And a lot of people will come to me and say, Oh, look, I have this tape that I made of my husband talking to me, and first of all, it was a crime to have done it and I can't use it in court because the judges won't hear it because it's illegally obtained. So even if you have it, you're not gonna be able to use it. And I tell my clients and sure you do, too. Don't do anything illegal. Because if you're at odds with a human being like your spouse, what happens if he calls the police who tells his lawyer that you've been doing this? And now you could be the one in trouble, right? That's exactly right. I had a funny case where I was following someone, and, um, I used to call the clients when I got something good. And, uh, I had been outside a house and had told on Well, what about your husband has brought his girlfriend She because family's house and this is just crazy. They're having dinner, right? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. And then all of a sudden, you know, like an hour later, I'm videotaping. You know, I'm not video chipping at that moment, but this woman pulls up brothers. The house grabs the girl by their rights or down the crushed. I'm like, Oh, my God. That's my client! I am not here. Yeah. Crazy stuff happened some surveillance emotions. They're so high, and you really have to be careful. We really have to be careful out there. People are doing some crazy things. Yeah, And that's the thing that you know you watch those shows the cheaters or whatever. I mean, I actually have a hard time watching those shows because even though it is kind of amusing to watch all this drama played out it really people are people are in pain and at the worst time of their life there. Being videotaped in that pain, and it's you know, it is hard to watch because it's their life. It's not. It's not funny to them. Obviously. Definitely, um, infidelity cases. I get a lot of calls about. You know, girlfriend boyfriends, and I don't do that. I only do legal cases with attorneys on 100% with an attorney and I will work with any client. That hat is going through a divorce. But mainly my best cases are Um Help protect the Children of a divorce. Which child custody. Um, I still receive phone calls Christmas cards with pictures of how happy to families are today. It's very rewarding work. And and that that is that is rewarding work, and there's a lot of that tour. People come to me and they say, you know, I want sometimes it's a man who says I'm afraid someone's gonna accuse me of doing something with my Children. So can I. Videotape. Can I have cameras here and you know, I want to catch my my wife screaming at me. So can I put a audio too? You know all of that kind of stuff and you gotta be very careful. I imagine right giving them advice what you can and cannot do. Yes. I mean, a lot of things can backfire on you like I was just telling you, Um you know, if you're if you're open and honest with someone, and you just don't know how it will be perceived in a court Aziz. You know, judges are very 50 15. They could follow the law are they don't even have to They can they can choose to listen to that audiotape. Uh, and use it. So it's really hard to know what's gonna happen in the divorce case. I, but I stay. I don't play with that grain and I just don't like it. No, no, I'm just curious about this. I know people are on dating app. So all of the time is there some way to determine quickly whether somebody you're in a relationship with is in on on a dating app are on all the dating app store. Some of them. Is there some quick way to do that. Well, if you guys use the same credit card, Yeah, sure, Crazy..

She became the first black woman to have a play produced on broadway half a century later her work remains one of the most celebrated snapshots of black struggles and black joy. Here's the story of lorraine hands berry lorraine hands berry was born on may nineteenth nineteen thirty on the south side of chicago. Her father carl. Augustus was a prominent figure. Within the city's black community having founded one of the first african american banks growing up lorraine and her three older siblings played host to a number of famous people including langston hughes. Wabc boys duke ellington and olympic gold. Medalist jesse owens. Despite their middle class status and cultural connections the hands berries were still subject to chicago's deeply ingrained. Housing segregation agreements known as restrictive covenants were widespread throughout the city. White property owners could collectively agree not to sell to african americans. This practice created a ghetto known as the black belt which ran through the south side when lorraine was eight years old. Her father secretly bought a home. In one of the so-called restricted heads in nineteen thirty seven when the family moved in a white mob attacked a brick was thrown through the window narrowly missing lorraine the local homeowners association filed an injunction for the hands berries to vacate lorraine her siblings were chased spat and beaten during their walks to and from school the supreme court of illinois doubled down on the legality of the restrictive covenant. And the hands. Berries were forced out of their home eventually the. Us supreme court overruled this ruling on a technicality. Thirty blocks subsequently opened up to black families across the south side while this ruling and the hands fight did not outlaw restrictive covenants. It did signal. The beginning of the end for the practice lorraine attended. Chicago's englewood high school where she became interested in theatre. She initially attended the university of wisconsin. Where she cut her teeth with the communist party but left after two years in one thousand nine hundred fifty lorraine moved to new york to be a writer by nineteen fifty one lorraine had found a home in harlem and began socializing with many of the great thinkers who had once visited her family back in chicago.

The patriarch of the family has died and a ten thousand dollar insurance payout is imminent they the money to buy a house in the cheaper all white neighborhood nearby to they use it to invest in a liquor store and education lorraine based many of the characters on the families who rented from her father and with whom she attended high school the cast safer one character was entirely black lorraine was in her twenties and the play itself dealt with racism life in chicago's black belt and the pain of assimilation into white culture topics that were considered risky for the predominantly white theater. Going crowd it took over a year to raise enough money to put the play up. When it debuted in nineteen fifty-nine a raisin in the sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on broadway and the first to be led by an african american director lorraine was twenty nine years old.

James baldwin noted. I had never in my life seen so many black people in the theater and the reason was that never before in the entire history of the american theatre had so much of the truth of black people's lives and seen on the stage.

The Harlem Globetrotters
"The Savoie ballroom was a jewel of jazz age. Chicago theatre opened in the nineteen twenties just before people in the United States were hit by the Great Depression which left many Americans poor and hungry throughout the difficult time. The Savoie was a place to find joy on the south side of Chicago. The building was regularly filled with residents from the largely African American neighborhood. Who gathered to dance to some of the biggest stars of the day count basie Duke Ellington Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong? Were just a few of the people who banged out. Tunes as people jibed across the giant DANCEFLOOR. Dancefloor was so big that it actually doubled as a basketball court for the Savoy. Big Five in the late. Nineteen twenty s the five-man team hosted games to fill the slow nights in the ballroom. A young man in cab. Calloway would sometimes seeing during halftime but back then basketball wasn't very popular people cared about contests like horse racing and boxing baseball. Not The five on five game that depended on getting a ball through a hoop. It was a long way from the sport. We know much slower and much lower scoring than today. This team from Chicago would eventually work to change that. But they're Savoie audience could never have guessed how at some point. There was a dispute among the players of the Savoie five and they broke up. Three of them led by Tommy. Brooklyn's start a new team and rename themselves. The globetrotters it was an era of barnstorming. And when not at the Savoy they set out from Chicago to tour the Mid West region of America there were no organized leagues of teams and players in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Instead semi professional teams would travel from town to town and earn money playing teams from whatever town they were in sometimes. Businesses might have a team of employees so a barnstorming team like the globetrotters might play against some guys who had spent the whole day assembling cars canning vegetables or even driving taxi caps. Other Times barnstorming might play a team made up of members of a religious group. The House of David. Those guys never shaved so they played basketball with beards down to their bellies. Making James Harden's beard look like a five o'clock shadow soon. A young Jewish immigrant named Abe Sapper. Steam entered the picture with the globetrotters. Abe was a terrible basketball player but his other skills were valuable. He knew a lot of people who did bookings and many of these towns and more importantly he had a car these five teammates and their manager. Abe would pile into his model t like sardines attend camp and hit those cold slick winter roads. It was the nineteen twenties and they understood that random people in random midwest towns might be surprised to find that all five members of the team coming to play their local guys were African Americans. There were very few professional sports comprised of African Americans at this point so they decided to alter their name to help people know what to expect at the time. The most notable and best all black basketball team was known as the Harlem rent which was short for the Harlem Renaissance in the Nineteen Twenties and early thirties. The New York neighborhood of Harlem was an epicenter of black culture and it was a time referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. People knew about these incredible artists and musicians. Who lived there along with the writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston so the globetrotters who were very much from Chicago? Ask themselves how do we make ourselves sound dignified worldly and clearly a team of African Americans the Harlem Globetrotters? Will it matter that? We're not from Harlem that we've never tried it around the globe new super nope cool. Let's pile into a small unheeded car and go beat some people in basketball and they did just that it was remarkable. How good they are. They beat nearly every team from Wisconsin. Illinois Iowa anywhere else they went then they pile back into the car and head on down the road to the next game throughout the nineteen thirties. The team built up quite a reputation. They might have been the best basketball team in the world. No one agrees on how the famous tricks came into the game. A popular explanation is that they'd slip into the fun and flashy dribbles and drives after they safely put plenty of points on the board against their opponent. This did several things one it entertain the audience. Once the actual threat of competition was gone. No one wants to watch a blowout so a fun. Show of tricks kept the locals entertained but also no one wants to watch their local fellas get trounced a group from the city coming in and wiping the home team can really anger a local audience and the Harlem globetrotters new. This trick plays would thrill any crowd and win them over. The focus slowly became not about the final score but about how much fun it was to watch these incredible athletes and their astonishing an often humorous approach to the game. I we win. And then we cloud Abe Saperstein once said now most people agree that the real clowning didn't start until a man named goose. Tatum joined the team. Goose was an incredible athlete. Who could put the basket ball through the hoop with ease? But he also had a keen eye for comedy he found inspiration and funny movies and carefully watched the acts of clowns and other entertainers his favorite gags would show up on the basketball court. Sometimes goose would tiptoe over and pretend to spy on the opposing team's huddle all while making sure the audience in on the joke other times he'd hand the refs at trick ball after a timeout upon dribbling the ball. The referee grow angry because the ball never bounced back up. It just plopped devoid of air on the ground. Sometimes goose would disappear from the court altogether while the game continued only to be found in the audience eating popcorn. He even had a bit where he would pretend to be knocked unconscious on the court. The refs in his teammates would try everything to wake him up. But no amount of shaking or poking prodding would open his eyes. It was only the smell of his own Stinky Shoe. That would get him back up on his feet again. Much to the disgust delight of the audience in Nineteen forty-eight Abe Sapper Stein was with a friend who just so happened to own a basketball team called the Minnesota Lakers. The Lakers were the best team in the brand new professional basketball league which would soon become known as the NBA. The League did not allow black players on any of their teams regardless of League affiliation and regardless of the color of the player skin each man believed his team was the best in the world. They'd never meet in a league as it was so the natural solution was to stage an exhibition game between the Lakers and the globetrotters. It didn't seem so to the men at the time but game between an all white. Nba team and an all. Black semi pro team would prove monumental. Eighteen thousand people came out to watch which was easily twice. As many people as most professional basketball games would attract the time. And despite the fact that the Lakers star center who stood six speed and ten inches tall was seven inches taller than anyone else. On the court. The globetrotters one on a last second shot. It was a powerful moment. The next season those Lakers would go on to win the National Championship. But when they played the Harlem globetrotters a second time for a second exhibition between the two teams. The globetrotters came out on top yet again. The following year the NBA ended segregation and three of those same Laker Whooping Harlem globetrotters Chuck Cooper Nat Clifton and hang designee. Became three of the I four African Americans to join the League and play professional basketball. This was nineteen fifty three years. After Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier in baseball the globetrotters still continue their entertaining shows today. Keeping the spirit of barnstorming alive. They get a lot of credit for how they support communities and bring joy to so many and educate kids about health. But it's easy to forget about how important they were in integrating professional basketball. They now tour and play with just one team often known as the Washington generals according to most sources the globetrotters have beaten the generals over sixteen thousand times. How many times have they lost though? That question is harder to answer. But it's just a few. The most recent globetrotter loss was way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one when both teams lost track of the score when clock expired. The generals were ahead. That was not supposed to happen. And people expected the GLOBETROTTERS TO WIN. And it's usually agreed that they will today. It's all about the show the fun and the love of basketball not the competition. This is what made that loss. So shocking reports from nine hundred. Seventy one SE. The stands were filled with silent shocked faces and even a few crying children. Luckily it's been smiles for all since then

"langston" Discussed on KQED Radio
"She set poems by Langston Hughes to her own music since then she's been working hard. She's produced several new human beings as well. As new albums the latest album, the capitalist blues is out now and Layla McCullough is with us from the south by southwest festival. Leyla. Thanks so much for talking with us nice to speak with you again. Thanks for making the time. How has the festival been for you, so far it's very interesting because I've heard about this festival for a long time. And and it's my first time actually being here. So I'm realizing why it has the reputation that it has it's kind of overwhelming. And it's like, wow, how do you break through? All of this noise. You know? But here I am. Well, speaking of breaking through all this noise. And one of the things about your music has always followed its own path. I mean, you've always kind of said what you wanted to say in the way that you wanted to say it, and you have kind of organized your life in such a way that you could do that. And I was reading an interview about this latest album. We're you said how have my previous records not been considered protests albums? Point taken which I feel like you're making a statement with the title capitalist blues, are you? Yeah. I think so I think that it's appropriate. It's been interesting even just being here at south by south west and witnessing the inequality that is so prevalent in our society just walking around the streets here, promoting my music. And yet the words that I'm singing still feel like they ring so true, especially in this sort of context where everyone is literally trying to get ahead and trying to move their careers forward. Trying to move their life forward in some way. And and then we're right next to this huge homeless population. I've been seeing like people nodding out on heroin on the street corners and thinking how did we all end up here at the same time in this moment. It just makes me feel like more sure of my songs. Does it feel a little disorienting in a way? Yeah. It's disorienting because I'm like, I don't want to believe that there is rampant inequality with and that it's difficult to see our way through this as a society. I don't want to believe that we're all so callous in some way, and that we're all just so self interested. I'm not absolving myself of that, you know, when I say that I feel that way about myself sometimes, and I'm like, this is so confusing. Because I'm using to be here. I have I have an incredible amount of freedom in privilege in certain ways. And yet. You know, I'm a black woman in the folk music world jazz world, just seeing all of the layers of my identity sort of juxtaposed.
