For having me bruce here first of all. Tell me how you became involved in the preservation of sierra leone's heritage. How did you get into this work. Okay thank you okay. So how did i get into this world. I actually got into this work in the early. Nineteen ninety s and after. I graduated from college. In bachelor's degree follows in geography. I was restarted teaching assistants. As we call for like two years and i was appointed where needed to make a move. I was supposed to before postgraduate studies. What i didn't work out then. I had an announcement on the radio time that the rookie union was funding some youth group. Who were interested in. Fostering ties between the people of sierra leone and the people of south georgia and this was underpinned by research that joseph paula and american anthropologist who was raised it in sierra dot. Fine these was on the recession. That's here's dawn. That's discovered the link between both signed and the people of south carolina judge so he had given a series of public lectures and a group of youth from willing seen instead of freetown heard about him and they are him and saying they were interested in working with him to see how the foster ties between sierra leone. Like each people in south carolina and georgia so the catalog story shots and projects propose. I was put together and the espn that time agree to funding through the national office. But the bulk of these youths. We are on indicated to mr pilot decided that was needed for graduates who could in a particular this history better and go on throw of educational institutions around the country sharing the history of ceylon. The sale use wjr in detroit. Atlantic's live free and our unique connecting people saw. Md you follow the workshop and this council wearing graduates where an ax to apply to be part of this workshop and the deal laws. That's at the end of the workshop. It test was going to be given. And the candidates with the highest mac will be hired as education officer of this new project. We're putting so. That's how i got involved. I attended the workshop by gustav. And god i called the is mark and i was hired as education of south when outfits called the girl kinship. A situation at that time. So that's how. I started working with heritage matters. What did we do bala. And this was in one thousand nine hundred ninety three okay. I know a lot of people may never have heard of justice l. pileup but he's an anthropologist. He came to sierra leone. As a peace corps volunteer in the seventies and that kick started his fascination with bunsen island's history. his anthropological research has created and deepen connections between sierra leone and the gullick ichi people in north and south carolina and georgia. We're going to put links to his work in the podcast notes. Okay so tell me a little bit more about bunsen island. What are some of the things that people don't know that make it a very fascinating heritage sites for sierra leone. They so much talk about bonsai even know where to begin. But it's a fascinating place like you rightly said and it's Just seventy miles up river from freetown and they say estuary you know you go past the grim point and is adjacent to propel which is a mining town and it is sad to look that even though both john is a huge international name recognition magento saying unions did not know that such a place existed right under our noses when i got involved in ninety-three i'd never heard of a silent preston visible also was when we all went spot of the training workshop. That was my face off once island of birds. Well it is. A unique island is very tiny. The just sixteen hundred feets long until now fifty feet wide and it's is a dilemma of modification in history. And when you get there you wonder. Why was this folks bids displaced why not on task so ireland wales on other islands. And you win you start delve into the of salen you come to know that. Because of defense and trade properties the trigger decided to keep the fortum balls island lantau island. We're actually i was built but tasso has gipp water all around and it was indefensible. You attack it from all around. So the photos moved to bonds. Which is i didn't of navigation. Ocean-going investment can only go as fast bonds and they cannot go beyond bonds or you will run. I show because the shallow waters in also did this day located there on silent at abaco boss island at the mouth of the two major rivers local creek. And you're okay areva. That's empty into the estuary. So boss was strategically located. I know it was a fresh pot of core for traders coming from the interior down these two middle river we so detroit ceylon in addition to being able to defend the island. When the attacked do i have to could not effectively. Defend the island located at limit of navigation. The were able to escape from the upriver. Beach and fleet to a friendly african village with the attack has to leave and come back and rebuild the island by these that defensive outlets that do not have tasso island so in addition to defense advantage. They've also get. I look at goods coming down from imperial because they were the first part of coal. So barnes is a very unique place. Because when you go there you i can back into. Time is only islands initials fresh national monuments. It is very quiet most of the time except when are on sites or when you have on site and it is completely abandoned and it saudis or abusive coastal. Look about it in rims. And you're ticking back into time and you're transported into when clitoris was going on there. If you have a very skillful saw guide you through the site you will be able to recreate the experience of what light lose lights way street was going on and i said it is in ruins what we are stabilized the winds through a project that we recently implemented. And i'm sure we'll talk about that down the road as we carry on this conversation. But it's where he's to slips docks reasonable who was the first chairman of the monuments unwillingness commission who we discovered i ninety nine hundred and fourteen abandoned four hundred years that is. What's he said he said. Boss place where history sleeps and you get that effect feeling when you get there in no because nothing else much as until did division projects it will just completely are banned muslim. Abby don rings in the with the vision project now when you see not some work has been done what. We're very careful not to take away. That's sense of being in a win in. It's not like we did not disney eight days no new technological advances or whatever what we merely stabilize the winds so it is a very special place to visit. It is a site of which sites in lots of africans perished alert sites where africans are subjected to inhuman treatment and it was a point. So shipments for thousands of africans where she to the americans to be enslaved in the american colonies of south carolina and georgia and the little flawed. So for me.

"An exceptionally good movie out. There now called the united states versus billie holiday and my guest today. Andrew day is playing billie holiday in such an exceptional incredible way that she's already got two nominations from the golden goal actress in a drama. In best song you know. So what more is there. come on. let's go out and sell them. I like iraq is gonna drama cly waiting to make that joke for like a week. I hear under that. You just desperate to play billie holiday. Dismiss this what's it. You had to go begley daniels and say this is my part as groveling at his feet on what i want all my life getting acting for all my lack of what just never never so yes. Deadly the exact of that is what happened. I'm just terrifying. I had not acted before other than in high school writing middle school like musical theater. Some plays but i never acted before as a major motion picture leading a cast. It was the idea that to me was like unfathomable unanimity at n ridiculous. Actually to be honest. I was like this is a terrible idea so now but i met with him and his he was thinking the same thing he like now. I really don't to preserve his role in so we didn't want to win a perfect meeting. Yeah it was amazing. Actually i know want you. I do not want to do this part anyway. Why don't we just sit here. Should be here these orders and we can go home so it was interesting. We bonded because we both were like. This is a terrible idea. But i saw him a desire to authentically. Tell billy store. In as a fan of billie holiday that was part of my fear is that i'd be staying on her legacy. that'd be stay on a great. Diana ross's legacy lady sings the blues or audra mcdonald on broadway. So i think we both saw. He was worried that he would also be that in casting me in so so we both had a great fear to overcome together. I think really for both of us. I mean through face into a lot of hard work and and and a great team right at gargantuan effort by our entire sort of ecosystem of people in family. you know we got together. We dove in. We move to get her here. We are win injured. Did the fear goal way Fear number one. Which but what happened was that i was uncomfortable and i was scared being but i had piece about. I had a piece about my purpose. Does that make sense. You know so was muscle. I was terrified. But i started to sort of feel my spirit. I try to stay. Spiritually grounded connected. I started to feel that. Okay just i was just reading. Certain things in has started to feel okay. I think i'm supposed to do this. I think this is something i suppose to say. Yes to i am. I actually read a scripture about being caused to face your fears doing act great faith and that's when i know care have to do this so i was still scared but it was one of those things that was like okay. You're gonna have to actually face it in a recumbent. Can you remember that. I seeing the did whatever that day was like where you're actually being billing. What did he was he gentle with yuli daniels and not starting with some. We actually very well. His the first day in the very first scene was gentle and our industry with natasha. Who's obviously incredible veteran actor writer like she knows this process from the top down so i was blessed that my first thing with her lee was extremely tender with me in two the entire process. You know so. It almost didn't matter with see we started with he had such care unanimity. But we did start. It's latasha leone is too little. The bank of holiday walking through central park in enemy talking about in his ability never jail talking bar tabarre card demand that she's dealing with stating from her. So it was. It was a little restricting through the park with the dogs. You know but it wasn't easy in the sense that it's technically my first day of shielding ever so that air ejector a by can't walk through parks sizably talulah bacon back and then the very next scene was actually her and i just making out in jewelry store so it was great. Second you know. Joe right in with lynching sexiness his first week little stroll in central park. That never happens again. Naked in front of strangers. That was gonna ask you before. I we talk about billion and the connection that that the two of you have of that night before you went to work the next day. What kind of a good night's sleep did you have. I'll regularly so. I really didn't sleep that i i'm not a. I'm not a sleeper. That's skill in the talent. I have not yet developed. Maybe somebody can hire me to be asleep. Let's see if some miracle pops out of that. That would be great so you know. It's interestingly enough people. Ask me what scene i struggled with the most non my okay was very emotionally challenging with a cenex. Struggle with divorce was in the hospital. But they're like billy's sleeping dislike. Relax a little bit like you just sleep Get closure is billion now. I there was no sleeping before going to set. Did it help you all that you have this wonderful musical career that you've been on stage in front of people. It's not the same thing as acting but in a way it is known as a singer as a musician. You have to feel everything you have to make it. Look like it's rolling off a lock that this is it. You can be confident than within the confidence. You can be inspired. He ended up at all. Yeah i think it did excellently. I mean you know one of the things my acting coach thomas which say she's like you know when it comes to acting. She knew how just terrified was she said it is. They are different but it is sort of the same. What she she calls. We ought announcing Chapman tuna says. Okay you know so. I think it did help in the sense that i know what it is like to go onstage. I know what it's like every night. The pressure before you go on stage the need for audience to love you for them to be satisfied for them to feel your love them. And i understand the washing process that once you're in it and you're in the music in your is i look at it as sort of a washing kind of cleansing a healing. Because i think that's it. And then i understand the feeling actor a performance of like. Oh my god that went so great or everybody's loving it select or arable like oh my god i i never wanna perform again. You know what. I mean. So i understand. Bill got sort of arca the most. There's so many permutations that yeah there is.

You're talking about. I'm guessing is like the seventies which by all forty years ago. Yeah these alligators Bring up in freetown for. I mean just to let you know that like you know read me. Just sierra leone What is called the dhs. It's like the housing survey basically every five years. There's a demographic and health survey that's done and the most recent one for sierra leone just came out it was compiled in twenty nineteen and the d h s is done by statistics sierra leone and funded by lots of our partners and you will not be surprised but today in sierra leone about sixty one percent of women between the ages of fifteen and forty nine have experienced spousal violence In fact it's gone up by ten percents From twenty thirteen in twenty hundred thirteen. When did the survey was fifty one percent ten years later more women in sierra leone actually report that they've been victims of spousal violence and You know sometimes. We think that. I mean as we discuss these issues we talk about you know human rights in sierra leone and you know the place of women the place of man. Women's rights the rights of children. Because we talk about this a lot. I think sometimes this like in our minds. We think because we're talking about it.

When i saw the the i was just really really heartbroken. Actually that even though we are talking about two to lots Even though there are programs even though you know the police now has like a special family support unit across every playstation. Now there's a family unit that's supposed to deal with issues of domestic violence and domestic abuse. Of course it's very very underfunded in general but just that you know you see the posters on the streets so you think that things are changing But that something you experienced growing up almost like three. Four decades ago is still very much a big problem in sierra. We wanna protect girls who wanna protect women. We wanna hands off our girls. You wanna do all these things when we talk about them but in our households. I don't think that the conversations are happening. I think a key part of the reasons why the conversations are not being the family household is again because of how men see themselves in our society in our communities in our families and so i'm really keen on talking to men like you Because i think that meant only men can talk to. You know because if we see the reality. Monday cedeno if not for Be wandering it's like this idea that the men are adults. The women are not right. If you really want to have these conversations about changing. We want to transform our society than not only miracle. Monday and say not to from. Because i may not be keep like come up before we move. Will you know what i mean. It's very important for men to speak up and for men to take a stand because you can talk to other men because other men see you as equal in a way that they don't see someone like you're i mean because Yeah go ahead. But i mean it's also like growing up on understanding all of these dynamics you'll inherited and inheritance all laminates not inherit Your language grow And each you.

There was another guy was arrested in Leone. There was another guy's rested elsewhere in France, and this is because Emmanuel Macron defended and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I will give credit where do free speech He defended free speech when in discussing the those the cartoons.

Smith came in with his own idea and so on but but really the coup. It had an and I've always said this when I was spoken to people. I've said that the person who it impacted the most was probably Chaka Stevens because he swore that we would never let that happen to him again, you know as yours as speaking with regards to like how the redness of the city right. I was just thinking I'm like, so this is how it happened because as his people come out to continuously defend you right and put themselves on the line against the Army for you when you come to power off or you can do whatever the hell you want. You can do anything you can do anything and then it's like you start to understand the excesses and the dead overly everything nest of you know, Siri another shock of Stevens, right? Cuz that's how you start. It's like Yeah, no, it's absolutely power up to the power. And and you know, what was interesting is that this is the thing that my father used to tell us and I can say this and Thursday available when which is remarkable when you consider that when he was a lawyer he had one of the most successful legal practices in the country and when he became a government Minister, I didn't steal.

It represents about 60,000 hospitality workers in Nevada, the majority of whom are Latino.

Gioconda Arguello. Kline is the secretary treasurer of the Culinary Workers Union. She says President Trump's handling of the Corona virus pandemic has hit Latinos, especially hard. In Nevada. Latinos make up about 30% of the population but account for more corona virus infections than any other group. We cannot afford another four year for President Trump, and we need to be sure by then become to be the precedent. But it wasn't Biden, who most Latinos in the State caucus for back in February. Bernie Sanders was the most popular candidate. An analysis by found that of majority Latino precincts, 70% backed Sanders. This is like two some concern among Democrats that Biden isn't motivating Latino voters. But Adrian Panto Ha doesn't see it That way. That enthusiasm gap is not there. We see a highly energized looking a population. Panto Ha is an analyst for Latino decisions, a public opinion firm focused on Latinos. He says that when it comes to getting Latinos to the polls, enthusiasm doesn't matter nearly as much as voter contact people vote because either have the resource is to go to politics or because politics comes to them. And when it comes to Latinos, which is a resource for community politics, coming to them is pivotal. Back on the streets of Reno. I speak with Javier or Maldonado, The young man Leone was canvassing.

Hope Vs. Despair

"Everyone Stacey Incarnate Cardiff here. This is indicator from planet money and it has been a while since stacey naive put on our holsters stared across from each other for a good old fashioned gunslinger and shootout. Right we know Cardiff. That these things are very hard on you so try not to make them frequently you know as it or not. I am talking like I'm in a Sergio Leone flick. So because we should always be talking like we're in a Sergio Leone movie. We need the music fistful of dollars, the DOODOO. Of. The US economy is in this very uncertain place right now, there's the election coming up Congress and the White House have not agreed on a new bill to provide aid and stimulus, and the economic indicators are pointing all kinds of different directions. Yes. So based on those indicators is the case for hope stronger or weaker than the case for despair. To end the show station high debate, we take sides and to decide which side we're flipping a coin flip out at the O. K. Corral, Dang right? Heads I. Make the case for hope and Stacey you are despairing and if it's tails, you get to be hopeful. So I'm hoping for hope. It's tails, which means you get to be hopeful I. Spring the despair. Oh, I'm so excited I. I'm excited to be the voice of hope Cardiff. I feel like I feel like there's a part of you. That's excited to be the voice of despair. AM I. Wrong. Little bit a little bit. So yeah US economy after the break the good the bad and the I guess in our case the Smug League own nice. Prepare to rush Garcia prepared to do Rashed it's happening. Support for this podcast and the following message come from. Google, from updating their hours to adding takeout and delivery information. Small businesses around the country are using free google tools to adapt learn how at Google dot com slash grow. Okay folks. I will be arguing the case for pessimism for despair about the US economy stacey is arguing the case for hope. Stacey. You get to draw I. Okay. Cardiff here it is the case for hope the US economy is coming back. Economists are forecasting that the economy rebounded very strongly in the third quarter of this year after a very terrible second quarter the official numbers for the third quarter have not been released yet. They come out next week, but it is possible that the economy was up to eight percent bigger than it was in the second quarter that is just enormous definitely for sure it would be A. Really strong number but let's remember that the third quarter included the month of July when the economy was still running on the stimulus provided by the cares act that was the big government spending bill that provided an extra six hundred dollars a week in unemployment benefits to people who are out of work but those extra benefits expired at the end of July. So the stimulus by now is probably wearing off and also we still have almost seven million more unemployed people in the country. Then back in February before the pandemic started and I'm really worried about them now that they're not getting that extra help. Yes, you are totally Right that the high unemployment rate has been absolutely crushing, but the reason for hope is that Cardiff this very great that you referred to has actually been falling. So remember the worst economic damage from the pandemic was in the early months of March and April since then the unemployment rate has fallen from about fifteen percent where it peaked down to about eight percent as the economy has recovered, that is a huge recovery in a pretty short amount of time. That's true for sure and a hopeful sign but we have to recall that not all unemployment is the same most of the people who've already gotten their jobs back only. Lost those jobs fairly recently, but the number of long-term unemployed people is actually still going up each month. These are people who lost their jobs more than half a year ago and they have not been rehired and the longer they go without a job. The more likely it is that they're gonNA, lose their contacts and lose their skill sets and really struggled to find work again. Later you make some fair points Cardiff and I would respond that if the economy keeps growing though eventually those jobs will come back and there is a really good reason for hope that the economy will, in fact keep growing and that is consumer confidence. In September consumer confidence shot up by the most it has in seventeen years, which means that people in the US are planning to keep spending money because they are optimistic about the economy. For example, the sheriff people who are planning to buy a major appliance like a refrigerator, a stove or something like that is the highest it's been in seven months, and all that spending is going to keep the economy growing. There we go. Cardiff Garcia mic drop I. Think we should just call it right now I have one because consumers can be wrong I. Mean just because you're planning to buy the latest oxo coffeemaker with that sleek. Thermal Carafe does that mean you actually will if suddenly the economy goes bad but I would also point to a big split in precisely what people are spending money on. So specifically, yes people are spending more and more money on goods for the home like furniture and electron ix. But consumers are still not spending much money on services on things like eating at restaurants on traveling, and that's a problem because for example, restaurants and hotels are a huge source of employment for low income workers. So I'm just worried about people who rely on those jobs coming back especially since remember again, those extra benefits for the unemployed already expired. Almost three months ago card. If I think you should go ahead and splurge and buy yourself fancy coffee Raffin. Here's why. So you keep mentioning that the benefits for unemployed workers have expired and that is true but it is also true that not all of the money from those benefits with spent right away. A lot of that money was saved plus people who kept their jobs have also saved more money since the pandemic started because all the business lockdowns meant there were fewer opportunities to spend their money and you know people were maybe hunkering down a little bit too and what this means that a lot of households out. There still have money saved up money that they can start spending in the economy on things like fancy coffee carafe indeed though we also do know that a lot of the unemployed workers have already spent down a lot of their savings according to the J. P. Morgan, Chase Institute the unemployed spent about two thirds of their added savings in August that was the first month after the benefits expired, which means by now their finances could be getting really tightened. So they may have to cut back on some of their spending card. If you've now perfectly set up my final argument in the case for hope hated when I do that. That is policy. It is not too late for the president and Congress to make another deal before the election in order to stimulate the economy, those negotiations are still happening and also the Federal Reserve has been using monetary policy to help boost the economy. For example, low interest rates have given a big boost to the housing market, and historically the housing market has been a good sign of where the rest of the economy is headed and housing market is doing quite well. Yeah I definitely concede. The point about the Fed and the housing market. But the Federal Reserve itself has also said that what would be really useful for the economy is another bill like the cares act from the president and Congress, and all I'm saying to you is if the case for hope relies on politicians striking a deal agreeing on something that might be the most despairing
