And so we've been getting all this all this material and cutting it together and just renting the impact on the restaurant industry again. That's one we have sold yet. But it's like this gathering.

Needs to right right so but you know. I was gonna say that also with kobe so much is about. You know how much you can do with documentaries. You're not waiting around your developing in writing your you know you're doing proposals In all the things that the studios ceo kick and you get that to us now. Like okay great.

"Pushkin this episode of broken record is brought to you by the house of chanel gabrielle. Chanel grew up with cinema excuse of movement revolutionized image just as she did with women's appearances gone wa credited the fashion design as costume designer in their films. Mgm invited her to hollywood to give it stalls in new york. She understood that actresses like homey schneider elizabeth taylor and jane fonda would be the best ambassadors talent her thomas modernity in trounce the actors of the french new wave today. Chanel continues to leave a mark on the silverscreen. Watched the film gabrielle. Chanel in cinema at inside. Chanel dot com with lockdowns intense elections and bad news everywhere. Not to be a good way to bring you some christmas. Cheer early most of us won't be traveling far from home for the holidays but luckily one of broadway's most compelling stars. Is here the new album transport us to a place. Where all is mary can. Brain knows go so happy that i can see you in whatever damage affirming infringes. Hey that's leslie odom junior with snow a song from his new release the christmas album. This is actually leslie. Second christmas app plus. He's released several vocal jazz albums over the last few years. But he's best known for his grammy and tony award winning performance as aaron burr in hamilton. Leslie spoke to. Bruce had him about his career on stage enemies as all time favorite christmas album. Which is a touchstone of ninety. Zombie also talks about how playing a founding father as a black man was an exercise in empathy and he shares the lesson he learned thinks the incomparable talents of nat king. Cole and sammy davis junior. This is broken record latter notes for the digital age. I'm justin richmond park. Here's bruce them with leslie odom junior. So you're in a strange point in your career because you've had a long career people might know you from rant. People might know you from television but people really got to know you as aaron burr in hamilton. But now you've this music career. And i've had this twice recently where people said. Oh my god. I'm listening to this guy. Leslie odom junior. And did you know he was also in hamilton. You're like you know when people used to say do you know. Paul mccartney was in a band before wings. That's you now. Oh man thank goodness no complaints. Because i came out to los angeles almost twenty years ago after graduating from college. And i was doing television and my goal really simple i was. I was trying to make a living as an artist and that meant taking almost any job on television that people would offer me with auditioning for lots and lots of very silly sitcoms. I'm very you know dubious dramas. And i could have gotten one of those i. I didn't get any of the one that i really really want. A black have gotten one of those. And i could have been known for some ridiculous catchphrase or for you know pulling some stupid face to make people laugh but the worst of what i get having been a part of the original company. Hamilton is life people saying pardon me are you. Aaron burr sir. You know so. I'll take that and i'll also use it is it is my job. It is my mission now to continue to to make sure that is not the peak that it's up peak in my career but that but that yeah we continue to. I continue to push myself in surprise people surprise myself and just keep digging. Will you actually turn down a tv show four hamilton. I in fact. I think he'd signed the contract and you direct to the head of the network and say please please. I have to do this other thing. And they're really nice about it. They were his name his name out of them credit forever. Name bob greene black. He runs hbo. Now but i did. I went to bob. And i said i know Thank you very much. You guys have give me a a contract for guaranteed half a million dollars and man. That's nice but I really wanna do this off broadway. Show this hip hop musical about the founding fathers. Will you let me out of this contract. And he looked at me. Like i was out of my mind that he said Sure i'll let you you are you. That's what you wanna do. Really and i said yes and he let me out but it was a point that you are feeling a little too comfortable doing tv. You felt it was. It was safe and you wanted. You wanted to take a risk. I did while. I didn't know what america would fee. I didn't know if the show would find an audience. But i knew what i felt about. Hamilton it was undeniable to me how it was changing me from the inside. Because at that point i had been involved in development for a few years and this this little show was not only making me a better actor and a better performer was making me a better husband. It was making me a better friend was making a better citizen like it was making me a better human being and listen to the tv show was nice but it wasn't doing that you know what i'm talking to young people. I say this is really important that you know what you're in it for. You really have to know what you're in it for whatever whatever game. You're playing whether it's finance whether it's medicine or your nurse. Whatever you what are you in it for because when the thing shows up you wanna recognize it. Don't miss it when it comes. You know so if you're in it for the dough if you're in it for the promotion if you're in it for validation or or chicks or a great car whatever it is that you at the end of the day like i got in it for this reason no it so that you don't miss it when it comes and hamilton a a piece of art like that. That is why i got in it. Rent was the show that brought me to the theater. And and you know my favorite quote about art and artists is that an artist spend their entire life trying to get back to the place where their heart was first opened up. And that's what hamilton did for me. It made me feel like that. Thirteen year old kid again. That's what i was in it for so it didn't matter if it was half a million dollars or million dollars or eight million dollars. I was not walking away from the the reason why i started on the path in the first place. Was there a moment with hamilton. Where you thought okay. This actually is going to succeed. His i don't mean succeed artistically that this is going to be bigger like was there a point you like. Oh this this is gonna work now. I don't remember the exact day but it was pretty soon after we opened on broadway and you know we had the confirmation of those box office receipts you had. You had the confirmation of the of the record breaking advanced cells. 'cause that that's what that's what matters in the commercial theater in the commercial theater commercial success is what matters and once we were confirmed that it was going to be that i had to wait until then because the business is littered with with great art and artists that were not appreciated or celebrated in their time. The stephen sondheim is known. You know Revered as one of the gr- the may possibly be greatest song writer for the american theater. You know he's brilliant and most assan heim shows including shows like west side story and these shows were not successful in their original run. They ran a year and a half some of them. You know a lot of them. They just people just didn't they weren't feel them in their time. So i didn't know of hamilton would fall into that category. Even once we went to broadway. So.

"He gives me more than he even feels that he does at times. I know that for a fact that that's like. Everything to me. What would be the one piece of advice? You'd give a sibling relationship that wasn't necessarily. In a good place. I'd actually say that families the only thing that sticks with you. There everything friends come and go relationships come and go but. Like a brother sister or mom and daughter whatever. That's that's what you have in life and that's what you fall back on earliest I do and so if you can make that relationship. Good or worthwhile than. You can always rely on it, but that's also not true in. In different households. So of course, but do you feel that the things that you do in your life? Do you feel that? You have your courage say to put yourself out there to write songs to save certain things is has something to do with how safe and grounded and loved you feel from your family. You know what I mean. Yeah. I actually one hundred percent like I'm. I think music is the scariest thing like no I think you're not to go into music I think that's going to film I think. But I'm not scared of. Failure. Because if if I fail if something bad happens whatever my family go back to you and nothing. Yeah I, I I'm not, Scared Yeah I always think there will be people out there who are listening to this who have a difficult time with their sibling and they try to figure out how to reconcile it. But then there's this longing that's always like if only I could just connect with that sibling, they might not have been able to connect with their parents but to be able to do that can completely change their entire life. So what would be your piece of advice to someone who's having a challenging time I mean? I find that. She's right in the fact that. This town, for example. I found that this town operates like a heat seeking missile a lot of times where it just chases kind of the flavor of the week and You can read into why you're not good enough for why things aren't happening, but at the end of the day. I, talked to my family every day pretty much every single member of them and they offer different things and whether it's a crutch or a laugh or just a keep your mind off things and life for instance, even when I was going through I've gone through breakups and Leslie's the one who literally talks me off of a ledge get my heart stopped on and she'll talking through it. You'll turn it into a song that sort of architecture. No but like that's that's like I'm sitting here going you know as a southern guy, you're not like necessarily wanting to just like. Cried your little sister about stuff. But really what you do is you can open up and talk about how you're feeling and alright a bunch of stuff and I'll say, hey, please make a song of it because it's shit hurts you know and but you will break things down for me and give me the real and family is no politics and they should be they're not every family has the luxury of that like I know my family no matter what I do. They'll be there and so you don't have to share code things you can hurt you can be vulnerable and you can be raw to them because. You know that's that's one thing on this town that I do feel like I've. Brought a lot of people in my inner circle and in my work life and personal life that are there from rebe at the end of the day you know that when push comes to shove the only people that are truly there if should has dries up My family is GonNa be the only one that's there and it's great I mean you guys are so lucky. So, lucky and I and I very lucky. You guys have really seems to be just a really stable honest. All you've got parents who are still together. But when you start interviewing people most most of the world really has real challenges in their family of origin and I actually think it's as important as you know talking to people who've had. Challenging relationships in their life if familial relationships that actually talking with you guys what what it's like to grow up with stability with a father who is really even who's able to diffuse situations and you know hit the neutral button. To be able to have that as your? Found Foundation creates this like. Safe beautiful feeling where you actually feel so loved at the end of the day. I think everyone's striving to create a family that can do what your parents did. So it's a real testament to your parents that you guys can speak about them like this that you're. So it's just so wonderful and I think. It'd be interesting to talk to your parents about their childhood because. Generational things shift and I bet they made some shifts in their life to be able to raise the kind of family that they did and and and it probably would be a great lesson everyone that you know. You don't have to be your parents you can raise your kids and your family exactly the way you want to. I don't know. I.

How do you how do you know Max first of all you guys work together way? Ed The same episode of will and Grace He was co starring as Debra Messing boss. And I was doing my little recurring thing as Beverley less on right. Aaron Walker's best friend anyway. We started talking and it's the craziest thing because we just really hit it off and then he invited me over for dinner one night and I didn't know who I was and his wife is brain fail. Who's had a casting for Fox? As I left his house they were cutting a deal for made for the cool kids series. I was GONNA do for lots and my agent said don't disappear. You know how we have to go back and forth. Where are you going to be going over to Max Greenfield? I'll speak does his was who were negotiating with fog. Dora were there. There was Charlie his last night. I don't know he's real big over at Fox in jazz and they said welcome to the Fox family on. That's how I knew I got project. And was that from your reoccurring role on will and grace to that have anything to do with you. Now they were casting this heart the characters nine and he was a seventy three year old straight Jewish man from Brooklyn Perfect Nevada. That's made Max said at three o'clock in the morning now. He tends to exaggerate. Light me up. Stories said at three o'clock in the morning he was looking at that script with his wife's in each unit who you should read for this. His name is less Jordan tested wail and so they called Charlie who was producing it who produced L. On my mind go. And you know Charlie Front Out Charlie Charlie from all the boys that rejoice in Philadelphia Charlie Charlie Day. So Max how Charlie. Day At three o'clock in the morning Charleston and Mass Jess He's the right one. And then Charlie tell me later on when I walked in I saw series because the cool kids must gun originally beat three guys older guys who grew up in Brooklyn. And they're they're now the cool kids and I rest Ghetto other housekeeping Alan grier and Martin Mall and Vicky Leslie. That's interesting have you. It was such a different type. Had you done a role like that? I mean when you first heard that it was a New York Jewish tough guy. I said look. I'M GONNA put a different spin on this. I didn't try it off. Okay okay try it all many years. Weather's a wonderful director named Sam. Weisman he went onto graduate mighty ducks and he cast in this part. Is Ralph Short the shortest member? Fdic the issue of the. He's set because now. Listen you carry a certain kind of baggage. It's not Gonna. You could articulate what that exactly means what he meant by that. How would you say to Bush? It up your your. He said that's not gonNA work with this character so I bush up which was hilarious. I can't remember but show that was silent and I said did I pull it off in days for my friends in Kansas. They said No. She walked on the screen. My friends at Gen. Even now you said get a Lotta her. Well you know. I have a friend named Ken. To is very. I mean he makes you seem like John Wayne. He's very flammable and whenever he would try to push it up it we come off. He he would do this. Kinda slow solothurn. Thank the strangest thing I had eight years ago. People our hope is that like an eighty two actor. Well you know what it was very wink. Wink come on. We go out to the gay bars at night. You see every cast director and Tan. You secret juicers. But then during the Dina Agents Collins they listen feet on the ground voice in the lower register. Keep your hands at your saw. Maybe sit on your hands. Didn't work again. Work never worked.

"People. You are fans of this man. You have demanded that we figure this out. If you knew how hard Leslie Odom Junior has tried to get here to do this and talk to you all and share this great news about his brand new record. You wouldn't believe it. The man has worked harder than anybody supplies. Let's give a warm Bob and Sheri. Welcome to Leslie Junior. Oh my gosh. Let's before there's an earthquake or an asteroid. Let's jump right in and talk about your brand new record all original songs written by you. It's called Mr started telling people that I was going to record Malala original tunes before I'd written a single Saul just because it sounded good just because it sounded like you know the next crazy thing I could say if I'm being honest with you. My wildest dreams came through a while ago. And so all of this has greatly you know the. I really didn't see any of this kind of stuff for myself. I was that theater guy came from the theater. And that's really all I wanted to do it so as the success since stuff has happened in that space. It's opened all these other doors that I'd be a fool not to walk through but it really is just about kind of just dreaming the new dream for myself every couple years. You know as I as things keep happening and I wish we for every single person under the sound of my voice. You know that there comes a moment in your life even if it happens once in your life if you can stare you know stared at a dream in the face like wow. This is it to materialize as the thing that happened. That only sounded sounded wild and crazy at some point. You know the treatment of drink. It's interesting to hear you describe it that way because I sometimes think that on even are even in our wildest dreams we can hold ourselves back you know. Were afraid to speak to the universe. What's really in our heart but then success You take some chances and you'd take some risks and yours brave as you can be and you have some success in some artistic validation and opportunities happen. They're not just opportunities in terms of jobs. Or or gigs or paychecks. Its opportunities to go that much deeper. And be that much braver. What do you think? I think you're exactly right. You know This whole you know the this this whole the pandemic is like a reminder of how why do this to begin with you know. Would you do it? Even if it wasn't attached to weekly paycheck and you know or I mean civil weekly. When I first the first ten years of my career I would have killed for weekly paycheck. Boy like more like a BI monthly paychecks. So let's talk about this big brave new leap the record of all original songs. Mr which when I read that. You recorded at skywalker ranch. I kinda had to rub my eyes because it seemed it seemed like an unlikely spot but tell me how that came to be Skywalker RANCH FOR PEOPLE. That may not that are going. Where have I heard that that's George Lucas? That's like Star Wars right right. I did My first very first film Did when I was like twenty five years old twenty six years old and I didn't do another film for ten years but that very first film I had at a small part in George is produced movie and he invited us up to the ranch. And we did like cast bonding weekend. The film about the Tuskegee airman and so we met some of the airman and got to ask questions and stuff like that and so George became a you know I Dare I say friend. You know what I mean somebody that I would. I would see around every now and again that he would always you know Care about how was doing and what I was up to. And so I never forgot my time up there and I always thought it would be amazing to do. A writer's retreat up skywalker. It's they've got everything they've got lodging. They've got pianos got a recording studio so when we were putting this album together I never had forgotten that in. I said well you know all they can say no. You know I mean I'm GonNa. I'm sure we were not going to get to skywalker ranch. But I'M GONNA I'm GonNa ask you know because maybe who else let us have it? Well you are. You're Tony Winner. Which has to be. I mean I bet there are still days. You're in the shower and you go hot. Damn I wanted to take. Probably you know that. That's any grammy for the cast album for Hamilton. And now you've got you've got this huge new credible original record that if we can ever let you out of the House you're going to be able to go out and perform for people I gave when we because we told our audience. We're like we're trying to have leslie ODEM junior on but we're having all these technical problems and we're driving the man crazy trying to get him connected so I started getting e mail from fans of yours And and one of them said you have to ask him what he sings to his little girl at night when he puts her to bed does he say dear theodose does he saying here. Comes Bunny Foo Foo? What does he sing? So funny I don't really saying to to my kid at night. We read but is she'd rather my wife saying that's violent because I went to Nicolette My wife is performed to. She's she's been on Broadway and see Ya. She'll sing Lucy's they sing. Nikola so-called waitress on Broadway. She started she started and yeah and her. Lucy will saying we'll sing those songs together. I am at home. I'd much rather hear Lucy or I'd much rather hear Nicolette Sing than me. Nobody's nobody's clamoring to hear me. Say because I don't care who you are. Whatever your thing is that you're good at your kids are like yeah. I don't think so dad I would be fine with me. Well we are just so glad that we were finally able to figure out a way to talk to you The next thing was going to be a CB radio down at the truck. Stop 'cause ideas. I can't wait for this all to be over so that you can get on the road and we can all come here. You do these incredible songs from Mr Live. It has been such a pleasure talking to you and I wish you nothing but the best. I hope everyone that you love. Stay safe and healthy and that we're able to get you back on the road soon.

"Not just any whale song though. The sound pattern is similar to the call of a blue whale but at a much higher frequency the mystery behind did that sound has gripped the imagination of people right around the world. Leslie Jamison tells that story of obsession and others like it in her latest collection of essays. Make it scream make it burn. Leslie is the author of the New York Times bestsellers recovering and the empathy exams. Leslie Good Morning Can Morning Matt. Let me start to be here. It's great to have you let me start with that sound. It's the sound of fifty two blue. What is the story of this whale? The story of fifty blue which is still ongoing actually is the story of the whale who ultimately became known as the loneliest whale in the world as you said his his his song was first discovered by these naval audio engineers. Once a set of Navy hydrophones had been kind of decommissioned from tracking Soviet subs at the after the end of the Cold War and they heard the song that was unlike. Any whale song. They'd ever heard and wants. Their results became public. People became obsessed with this this elusive Wale and his song for a couple of reasons that his song was different from any other whales and that he was always tracked traveling alone. I was interested in telling not only the story of the whale himself. And how he had been discovered but really the stories of people who had become obsessed with him and why they had become obsessed with him and and what sorts of meanings they projected onto him. Told me more about that. Because to your point people people became obsessed with this. Well Yeah I think and and I'm very interested in in getting at the insides of people in the mysterious insides of people through these things that they get consume buying. Can't let go of so you know I tell the story. Three of a Polish tabloid photographer who got down by his girlfriend and became very attached to the whale as a sort of mascot of heartbreak and ended up getting a massive massive tattoo of the whale. That I can show you many many photographs of if you're interested across his back I tell the story of a an Irish union organizer Sir. who sort of restarted his life and Middle Age and for him the whale was a mascot of endurance? I really got quite close to one woman men who was recovering from a coma up in Harlem and for her the whale was simultaneously symbol of loneliness and a symbol of what it might mean into be resolutely adamantly independent. Why did people project so much onto the whale? There's a line that somebody says that the whale is everything. What was it about this whale? That allowed them not just to get the Tattoo and to write songs about it and to create art inspired by the whale but to project all of that onto this thing I think there were a few elements at play. I think for starters. The whale was simultaneously vivid and distance. So it's it's an immediate media image of this whale all alone in the vast ocean you can picture you can kinda get attached to that image but the will was far enough away that we didn't really know do that much about him and that not knowing made it easier to project sort of everything onto him. I also think there's something about Wales Moby. Dick is obviously the original white canvas. Bewail who comes to stand for lots of different things to lots of different people in the Melville novel but I I think whales are simultaneously genially so huge and powerful and that with this particular whale there was a sense of vulnerability living alongside that huge massive power because has he was always alone because he was a little bit different and I think those veins of vulnerability made him a a a more appealing source of obsession. What were are you more interested in the whale or that sense of Obsession I? My ultimate interest was within the obsession of which became a participant in as well as the documents are of. I there anybody who knows me during the eighteen months span probably two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen. When I was working on that long piece nose and was subjected to listening to like a particular song that had been inspired by the whale? Everybody in my life was hearing a lot about the whale. I myself was coming out of a long term relationship and so I think that idea of solitude and what could be done with solitude became Quite moving to me as well and so when I was writing about these people who are obsessed. I wasn't writing about them. As kind of clinical anthropologist. I was writing about them as as kindred spirits in a way. How'd you land on this? I mean you have written a lot about obsession and things that people become obsessed with whether it's running incredibly long distances whether it's it's the whale whether it's a mysterious skin condition or the idea of reincarnation how'd you end up landing on what you become obsessed with so there are lots of pads to my subjects. Sometimes their personal so in the case of the ultra marathon the brutal race through the Tennessee Z.. Wilderness that you mentioned i. It first came onto my radar screen because my brother was running it and he is now run it run it and not finished it many times which is kind of in some ways points race did not finish other pieces come to me. Through editors and editors approach me with a lot of ideas that I don't take so I think it it always always comes down to the question of whether I feel both a deeper level of connection to the story and usually that deeper level of connection comes from feeling like I can tell both the surface story of the whale of families who believe their kids were reincarnated spirits from the past. There's there's that story that I can report out on the tangible level but for me to really take the story on there has to be some set of deeper questions that I feel like that surface. This material is granting the access to and that's ultimately my entry point into the story. How do you define that? I mean the the idea of obsession because it's not just a fascination. It's not a preoccupation. It's something that's deeper and it's not just about time either. It's it's something that goes beyond that. What's what's the definition that you apply to that I think for me part of part of what I come back to you in thinking about? What makes something an obsession? Is that it. It feels as much a part of of a person as the external realities of their lives so their family life their job life their daily commute their their home where they live. You know that that this obsession if you were to ask that person like who are you. What makes you who you are? What makes you tick that? This obsession would be just as much a part of that answer. Maybe even a bigger part of that answer then. Those External realities of their daily pragmatic life. Life it's almost like if if every person is sort of the is the version of like the surface of the earth or kind of geologic crust than the obsession is this Fisher that opens in the earth in. It feels like that Fisher can deliver me to something deeper and more multi and stranger inside of them. You could dismiss some of the things that people people are obsessed with. There's a piece in the collection about couple who believes that their son was Second World War pilot and his past life and it could be easy to say. Well that's odd and kind of put it off to one side. You don't do that. The why the reincarnation piece was a good example of the fact act that there was a reality happening there no matter what. So maybe there was the reincarnation of a World War Two fighter pilot in in which case that was a reality that was happening but even even if you were to somehow which would be impossible I think totally disprove the possibility that he was reincarnated fighter. Pilot there's still a reality of what's happening there. which is that a family has constructed an entire sense of identity around around the soul of their son being the sole of this pilot? And that's become a big part of their sense of who he is as a person it's become a big sense of who for him who he is says the person and it's become a big part of their family narrative so for me it's impossible to dismiss because whatever the truth of the reincarnation piece there is a truth truth happening there of the store. Is that this family has been telling themselves and kind of constructing their their lives around as a journalist. Or you comfortable with that. I mean you talk about with this in in The pieces as well the line that you may or may not be crossing. It's not as though you believe their story. But you don't completely dismiss it as well and you almost believe you you you find yourself almost aligning with with what they're saying right. Yeah so I think my I think. My understanding of my role was the journalist in relation to their story was that I had to pursue that angle. Of how does the story of reincarnation align with the facts that we can see your. The scientific frameworks we do have but at the same time it also felt like to me and even more compelling part of my role as a journalist was to really investigate what the story had come. I'm too mean for the family and to be as honest as I could on the page about my own. Subjective investments in the story. Why I felt defensive? Incisive of this belief in reincarnation why I wanted to sort of make a case for a belief in reincarnation as suggesting something beautiful about a human understanding of the soul even if we couldn't back it up with physics for example. When I'm writing about reincarnation I'm also early on and twelve step recovery and actually a a lot of the ideas that were appealing to me about twelve step recovery? Were also appealing to me in the vision of Self Hood that reincarnation suggested and so I put that I put put that kind of bias on the table. Because I think I'm telling a story of my encounter with a phenomenon and that's a part of that story. It's also but encounters with with people told me a little bit of votes the photographer that you meet in one of these pieces any appeal. Yeah another another instance of obsession. In this case I think both identity and and time the passage of time have have a lot to do with with her obsession but Anne is a photographer who has been photographing the same family in in Mexico for almost thirty years at taking many many trips to spend many many weeks in their company a lot of her method involves does getting close at both emotionally and literally so that she can show up enough times to be present for the shots that are ultimately going and it be the ones that kind of crystallized some truth for her but I was really interested in her photography as an art practice but I was also really interested in her emotional investment in that work the way that she kind of wasn't able to let go of it. What did you learn from her obsession? A couple of things one that the same things that make a creative process beautiful and profound can also make it wrenching and difficult so I think for her part of what I loved about the photographs. She had created of this family was the fact that they existed over thirty years the fact that they seemed saturated with the intimacy of these bonds. But I also saw the way is that you know. First of all there was a a kind of pain embedded in her relationship with them because she was exposed to the injustice of their poverty the extent of their suffering not that their lives were entirely composed of suffering but they held a lot of difficulty. And that you know for her there was a a real ongoing pain in becoming so close to them so I think that double edged sword quality of like the same same thing that makes something strong can also make it..

It's also but encounters with with people told me a little bit of votes the photographer that you meet in one of these pieces any appeal. Yeah another another instance of obsession. In this case I think both identity and and time the passage of time have have a lot to do with with her obsession but Anne is a photographer who has been photographing the same family in in Mexico for almost thirty years at taking many many trips to spend many many weeks in their company a lot of her method involves does getting close at both emotionally and literally so that she can show up enough times to be present for the shots that are ultimately going and it be the ones that kind of crystallized some truth for her but I was really interested in her photography as an art practice but I was also really interested in her emotional investment in that work the way that she kind of wasn't able to let go of it. What did you learn from her obsession? A couple of things one that the same things that make a creative process beautiful and profound can also make it wrenching and difficult so I think for her part of what I loved about the photographs. She had created of this family was the fact that they existed over thirty years the fact that they seemed saturated with the intimacy of these bonds. But I also saw the way is that you know. First of all there was a a kind of pain embedded in her relationship with them because she was exposed to the injustice of their poverty the extent of their suffering not that their lives were entirely composed of suffering but they held a lot of difficulty. And that you know for her there was a a real ongoing pain in becoming so close to them so I think that double edged sword quality of like the same same thing that makes something strong can also make it..

"Not just any whale song though. The sound pattern is similar to the call of a blue whale but at a much higher frequency the mystery behind did that sound has gripped the imagination of people right around the world. Leslie Jamison tells that story of obsession and others like it in her latest collection of essays. Make it scream make it burn. Leslie is the author of the New York Times bestsellers recovering and the empathy exams. Leslie Good Morning Can Morning Matt. Let me start to be here. It's great to have you let me start with that sound. It's the sound of fifty two blue. What is the story of this whale? The story of fifty blue which is still ongoing actually is the story of the whale who ultimately became known as the loneliest whale in the world as you said his his his song was first discovered by these naval audio engineers. Once a set of Navy hydrophones had been kind of decommissioned from tracking Soviet subs at the after the end of the Cold War and they heard the song that was unlike. Any whale song. They'd ever heard and wants. Their results became public. People became obsessed with this this elusive Wale and his song for a couple of reasons that his song was different from any other whales and that he was always tracked traveling alone. I was interested in telling not only the story of the whale himself. And how he had been discovered but really the stories of people who had become obsessed with him and why they had become obsessed with him and and what sorts of meanings they projected onto him. Told me more about that. Because to your point people people became obsessed with this. Well Yeah I think and and I'm very interested in in getting at the insides of people in the mysterious insides of people through these things that they get consume buying. Can't let go of so you know I tell the story. Three of a Polish tabloid photographer who got down by his girlfriend and became very attached to the whale as a sort of mascot of heartbreak and ended up getting a massive massive tattoo of the whale. That I can show you many many photographs of if you're interested across his back I tell the story of a an Irish union organizer Sir. who sort of restarted his life and Middle Age and for him the whale was a mascot of endurance? I really got quite close to one woman men who was recovering from a coma up in Harlem and for her the whale was simultaneously symbol of loneliness and a symbol of what it might mean into be resolutely adamantly independent. Why did people project so much onto the whale? There's a line that somebody says that the whale is everything. What was it about this whale? That allowed them not just to get the Tattoo and to write songs about it and to create art inspired by the whale but to project all of that onto this thing I think there were a few elements at play. I think for starters. The whale was simultaneously vivid and distance. So it's it's an immediate media image of this whale all alone in the vast ocean you can picture you can kinda get attached to that image but the will was far enough away that we didn't really know do that much about him and that not knowing made it easier to project sort of everything onto him. I also think there's something about Wales Moby. Dick is obviously the original white canvas. Bewail who comes to stand for lots of different things to lots of different people in the Melville novel but I I think whales are simultaneously genially so huge and powerful and that with this particular whale there was a sense of vulnerability living alongside that huge massive power because has he was always alone because he was a little bit different and I think those veins of vulnerability made him a a a more appealing source of obsession. What were are you more interested in the whale or that sense of Obsession I? My ultimate interest was within the obsession of which became a participant in as well as the documents are of. I there anybody who knows me during the eighteen months span probably two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen. When I was working on that long piece nose and was subjected to listening to like a particular song that had been inspired by the whale? Everybody in my life was hearing a lot about the whale. I myself was coming out of a long term relationship and so I think that idea of solitude and what could be done with solitude became Quite moving to me as well and so when I was writing about these people who are obsessed. I wasn't writing about them. As kind of clinical anthropologist. I was writing about them as as kindred spirits in a way. How'd you land on this? I mean you have written a lot about obsession and things that people become obsessed with whether it's running incredibly long distances whether it's it's the whale whether it's a mysterious skin condition or the idea of reincarnation how'd you end up landing on what you become obsessed with so there are lots of pads to my subjects. Sometimes their personal so in the case of the ultra marathon the brutal race through the Tennessee Z.. Wilderness that you mentioned i. It first came onto my radar screen because my brother was running it and he is now run it run it and not finished it many times which is kind of in some ways points race did not finish other pieces come to me. Through editors and editors approach me with a lot of ideas that I don't take so I think it it always always comes down to the question of whether I feel both a deeper level of connection to the story and usually that deeper level of connection comes from feeling like I can tell both the surface story of the whale of families who believe their kids were reincarnated spirits from the past. There's there's that story that I can report out on the tangible level but for me to really take the story on there has to be some set of deeper questions that I feel like that surface. This material is granting the access to and that's ultimately my entry point into the story. How do you define that? I mean the the idea of obsession because it's not just a fascination. It's not a preoccupation. It's something that's deeper and it's not just about time either. It's it's something that goes beyond that. What's what's the definition that you apply to that I think for me part of part of what I come back to you in thinking about? What makes something an obsession? Is that it. It feels as much a part of of a person as the external realities of their lives so their family life their job life their daily commute their their home where they live. You know that that this obsession if you were to ask that person like who are you. What makes you who you are? What makes you tick that? This obsession would be just as much a part of that answer. Maybe even a bigger part of that answer then. Those External realities of their daily pragmatic life. Life it's almost like if if every person is sort of the is the version of like the surface of the earth or kind of geologic crust than the obsession is this Fisher that opens in the earth in. It feels like that Fisher can deliver me to something deeper and more multi and stranger inside of them. You could dismiss some of the things that people people are obsessed with. There's a piece in the collection about couple who believes that their son was Second World War pilot and his past life and it could be easy to say. Well that's odd and kind of put it off to one side. You don't do that. The why the reincarnation piece was a good example of the fact act that there was a reality happening there no matter what. So maybe there was the reincarnation of a World War Two fighter pilot in in which case that was a reality that was happening but even even if you were to somehow which would be impossible I think totally disprove the possibility that he was reincarnated fighter. Pilot there's still a reality of what's happening there. which is that a family has constructed an entire sense of identity around around the soul of their son being the sole of this pilot? And that's become a big part of their sense of who he is as a person it's become a big sense of who for him who he is says the person and it's become a big part of their family narrative so for me it's impossible to dismiss because whatever the truth of the reincarnation piece there is a truth truth happening there of the store. Is that this family has been telling themselves and kind of constructing their their lives around as a journalist. Or you comfortable with that. I mean you talk about with this in in The pieces as well the line that you may or may not be crossing. It's not as though you believe their story. But you don't completely dismiss it as well and you almost believe you you you find yourself almost aligning with with what they're saying right. Yeah so I think my I think. My understanding of my role was the journalist in relation to their story was that I had to pursue that angle. Of how does the story of reincarnation align with the facts that we can see your. The scientific frameworks we do have but at the same time it also felt like to me and even more compelling part of my role as a journalist was to really investigate what the story had come. I'm too mean for the family and to be as honest as I could on the page about my own. Subjective investments in the story. Why I felt defensive? Incisive of this belief in reincarnation why I wanted to sort of make a case for a belief in reincarnation as suggesting something beautiful about a human understanding of the soul even if we couldn't back it up with physics for example. When I'm writing about reincarnation I'm also early on and twelve step recovery and actually a a lot of the ideas that were appealing to me about twelve step recovery? Were also appealing to me in the vision of Self Hood that reincarnation suggested and so I put that I put put that kind of bias on the table. Because I think I'm telling a story of my encounter with a phenomenon and that's a part of that story. It's also but encounters with with people told me a little bit of votes the photographer that you meet in one of these pieces any appeal. Yeah another another instance of obsession. In this case I think both identity and and time the passage of time have have a lot to do with with her obsession but Anne is a photographer who has been photographing the same family in in Mexico for almost thirty years at taking many many trips to spend many many weeks in their company a lot of her method involves does getting close at both emotionally and literally so that she can show up enough times to be present for the shots that are ultimately going and it be the ones that kind of crystallized some truth for her but I was really interested in her photography as an art practice but I was also really interested in her emotional investment in that work the way that she kind of wasn't able to let go of it.
