Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

We're taking pictures of food were taking pictures of our loved ones and everything. And then along the way we wanted to tell Facebook. Hey, everybody. I'm checking into this vacation resort. I'm taking this airline. I'm doing this. I'm doing that. I'm taking all these surveys. And so for years we gave Facebook our information because we didn't know Right. We always talk about this, Ursula. You don't know what you don't know. And we didn't know that We were just serving up our information to mark and we we forgot that Mark Zuckerberg and his friends are the same ones that created Facebook. Why?

The you can give us for those of us who want to be helpful. We wanna provide good support system. We don't always know how. Yeah i love this. Because i do have hope. I do believe in my heart. That even when they're people who say the wrong things really are well intentioned and they really want to help And i think one of the first things a person can do is to educate yourself. You know if you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with bipolar or bpd or trauma ptsd. Flex ptsd educate yourself. What are what are some of the signs where the some symptoms even ask beloved one.

"Conservative talk. Yeah yeah so. I'm really kind of at the intersection of face. Culture and mental health born and raised in los angeles. I'm in california and Studying psychology and research assisting ucla's someone institute for neuroscience and human behavior so in my studies in research working on a thesis but then also i do a lot of like opening up the conversation about mental hall in a holistic way in faith settings in general settings but i think mostly in the community i was a church cade so so just that blending of the theology and be psychology and even the science. Far as we're looking at it comprehensively is kind of what. I'm really big about sewer in your line of work. What would you say are some of the misconceptions even encountered in the faith community around mental health. I think there's two big things that come to mind one as you know. I think throughout the history of the church. We've kinda had this one hundred percent spiritual view about mental hall which is all the symptoms of mental health and the causes are all is spiritual issue just solely a spiritual issue which can unfortunately lead people to be demonized or something must be wrong with your faith for you to be or your relationship with guide for you to be having mass. You know And so the biggest thing. I advocate is that we are bio psycho social spiritual beings psyhological psychological social and spiritual human beings. That's how we're wired. You know the bible says to love your blurred your god with all your heart with all your mind with all your soul with all your strength. We have all these dynamics that makes a human being and that also contribute to our mental health. So i've just addressing the whole person that's probably the biggest one. And then i think the second thing i liked to really debunk. Is this idea. that But again something must be wrong with you spiritually or morally or your character if you are experiencing depression or anxiety or have been even diagnosed or even need to take medication and i think that just comes from black and white thinking and the assumption that you know good things must happen a people who do the right things and bad. Things must happen to people who don't do the right things or are in some kind of disobedience or unrepentant sin you know matthew five forty five cents on the just and the unjust alike rate. Jesus comes across the blind man. John nine and they're like who sinned rabbi. His parents that he ended up lying. And jesus nobody send neither. This happened. So god me glorified.

How do you think that helps you develop as a performer with all that shyness? I feel I hate playing solo and a so it helps needs to have other people on stage with me like it takes the pressure off a little bit So yeah and also like they're really funny so it helps the whole show feel more engaging to have Other people who have some character on Asia with me you also have received support from your local.

Just basically like listener supported commercial free community centered mission driven. Radio Yet They're really cool. Can you talk about what it means to you to be supported by your local radio station like how it might help legitimize your work or encourage you to lay.

"Theme. Leticia Van Sant. Thanks so much for talking to me. Hey thank you so much for taking the time You live in Baltimore rate. I do Where did you grow up? I grew up a part of the time in Baltimore City and part of time in the suburbs And I went to college out in Minnesota and I also lived in DC for about six years but nine back in in Baltimore. Nice and your name Leticia Van Sant so like not an easy name people And I've noticed the way that you your name with others is like very kind yet. You have taken control of the narrative like you have pronunciations all over your social media all over your website. You even have an explanation for your name. Letitia is an old family name that you share with a lot of women in your family and then you were nicknames. Sandy from Van Sant. So that's your middle name and you still like you. Have this like whole explanation on your website. Can you talk about your relationship your name and also how you've come to present it to people? I really appreciate the question. Because it is a source of confusion often Like just first meeting people so I so like it said on on the website. It's an old family name and at the time that I was born there were four other letitia and my mom's Tisch and my aunt goes by letty and So they just decided to give a totally different. Sorry your mom and her sister of the same name. Oh it's my great aunt. Oh Okay Yeah. Yeah so yet anyway. So they they had already kind of used up the nickname so they called me sandy for Van. Sant which is my middle name. My real last name is Robson so growing up. Most of the time people knew me as Sandy Robson and then when I started to perform I thought that Leticia Van Sant was like a rock and rule were interesting name and the way that I tend to think about. It is kind of two things like they are both Matra. Lineal names for me. So if feels like a way of honoring women in my family and it also feels like the opposite of a stage name for me like instead of it being like a fake front. It's like a more distilled version of the real may and then. How did you come to you? Because you're a person that it seems as though like really loves to practice compassion. So how did you come to present it to people in the way that you have? Oh I just wouldn't expect anyone to know how to pronounce it. 'cause it's hard to spell in her pronouncing note people haven't come across it before so I don't want it to be like a stumbling block or a barrier. When I'm meeting people so your family growing up what did what did it look like. My mom is doctor. My Dad was a teacher a high school teacher. I have an older half brother and a younger younger brother. Who's about a year and a half younger than me and yeah like I said we. Most of the time I was growing up in the suburbs of Baltimore and I feel really blessed to like. I just have really wonderful supportive family in and we got along really well and my dad is very creative. And get himself in all kinds of Scientific inventive projects. All the time So I feel like I get some of my creativity from him. You see science teacher yet. He taught physics and chemistry and Flight Flight Science and computer science. So he's low alter nerd. Do you have an interest in science? no not really but I sit another thing. That was important gray was that they had my both. My parents had grown up in really strict methodist homes and so they grew they raised s with no religion whatsoever. And then when I started to want to go to church when I was like thirteen or fourteen I the only place that my dad wanted to take me was a quaker meeting house because he had encountered them when he was drafted into Vietnam and he had really taken issue with how the Methodist Church was kind of tacitly supporting war and so he thought that like a real church would be against it and said so. He took me to quaker meeting and then that was a really big part of my formative years. was a quaker meeting and getting to know those people and then. I The lobby group that I worked for in Washington. Dc was it a quaker. Lobby Group Yes I worked for about six years so when you were a kid would what made you want to start going to church? That's a great question. I think it was because I grew up in an area that had lots of Catholic people and some of my Catholic friends were convinced that I was going to hell because I was baptized zone. And so I and so. I started reading the Bible on my own but I kind of thought that in my house it wasn't allowed was wasn't really true but I would like secretly read the Bible under the bed covers unlike have no idea what any of Matt and was like totally confused by it and so I started to just want some sort of spiritual guidance. It took me a long time to ask before I was able to go to church. It was good for me when I did. Yeah how did you find the quaker meeting services? Well I guess for people who don't know Quaker meeting is they. Call it meeting instead of church and you go into a room in their pews on all four sides and the basic idea is that every person has equal access to the truth and that we all are equally able to seek it and So there's no ministers and as you sit in for an hour in silence and if anyone feels like they have a message or Some kind of They call it ministry to offer You can stand up in share message so it's nice like people Is mostly quiet but then you hear like bits of wisdom or questions or or you know neat stories from people in the room. When would you stand up? They talk about the the name. Quaker came from people talked about like before they stood out to give a message they would start to shake or cut a quake and I almost think it like a version of stage fright like that people are like nervous to get up and say something in front of everybody at again. Now that I'm talking about is not unlike stagefright performing like making yourself very vulnerable when you're doing that so I guess I can't quite remember any messages of given quaker meeting but most of the time I just listen yet. Yeah I wouldn't have probably stood up by their. Yeah yeah would have been afraid. I'm interested to learn a little bit more about what kind of kid you were like. For example I read that you had a poetry club. The Tree House some Tomboy for sure. I grew up with on the street with only boys only brothers and I also started to really love public tree and I love the books of Narnia and I would right. Let's of Haiku in poems about fairies and and like castles and stuff like that and I I really like to make maps and forts in the woods. Let's cool yeah like cool kid. Yeah in this era. You would think it was a cool kid. In retrospect I saw this video of you juggling on facebook and you said that you like tie yourself to juggle when you were eight when you move to a new neighborhood and had no friends which is that sounds really hard. So how hard was it for you to make new friends as a Kid? And does that translate into your adult? Life is your sense. Great Question of my whole family was is. I would say like everybody's Kinda shy and yeah me moving to new neighborhood as an eight year old. I'd say overall life I've been very lucky to have a relatively easy life but that was one thing that was really hard for me for sure and yeah. I had a really hard time making new friends and I was really really shy and I remember like in middle school. I started to like WanNa work on not a lot and so it would make little goals for myself and I would say like like Okay today in math class and going to ask Julia what time it is. Ask Her at two forty seven and then it would be like to forty six. So yeah I dislike may little goals for myself in but I would say also like a getting No people in the quaker youth group was like a major growth time for me that helped me get over my shyness and it helps me relate to other people a lot because. I think a lot of things that look like me. Nisar or look like people who are too cool or you know it's just it's just that people are shy or you know people who are having a hard time figuring out how to express themselves like I think we all just need to have a little bit more compassion for each other about how hard relate to each other totally and something that just occurred to me about Going to quaker meeting so much is like being comfortable with silence.

You're doing well in staying safe and healthy To be talking to Leticia Van Sant Who's an artist from Baltimore and there's something I find very telling about the way. She approaches her name with people she offers the pronunciation upfront. She puts it right on her website. Letitia Tisch rhymes with wish a not assuming that someone would know how to say her name. There's kindness and patience and the offering but she also takes control of the narrative in her unique and beautiful name on her website. It says letitia is an old family name that she shares with a number of women in her family as a child she was nicknamed Sandy from Van. Sant her middle name. Her friends still call her sandy but she responds to both as a shy child. Letitia grew up with a passion for social justice and pursued a career in politics. She actually worked at a progressive lobby group in Washington. Dc until she decided to make music a fulltime venture a writing does have a political edge occasionally and she also bravely approaches the topic of sexual assaults garnering from her personal experience. We talk about how she made the choice to address her experience in such a public upfront and honest manner. She's a clear-headed smart and compassionate person. I really enjoyed getting to know.

"Quick question for the waiver, Bronx New York, a friend of mine as Letitia James while she was public advocate. Okay. About unemployment and. Really employment issues, both and housing in particular. If she said, if it weren't seemed like nothing happened with Letitia James after hearing this from does the issues get lost in the source and the larger political constituent or about the issues when we look at the larger picture because there's no answer coming from Letitia, James one person particular so hamlet page, a friend of thank you. Yeah. So. Council member or potential public advocate. Yeah. I would say I wouldn't put that on tissues actually, pretty vocal on these issues. I would put it on just a whole lot of elected officials, including myself and voters have to hold us responsible for the things that we said, we're going to do very often and too often that doesn't happen. We get excited we vote, and we walk away and many of us say some nice things in the camera, and we go in another room and do something else. But the biggest issue that when I run I want to deal with is affordable housing in particular. I've been working on this issue for over twenty over twenty years. The the number the two things I got asked the most actually about as employment and housing those are the two toughest things to deal with. But there's some things that we are not doing the city council, and the mayor I believe failed when it came to some zone and proposes that came for years ago mandatory inclusionary housing, we're not using all the tools that we can when now trying to overlay some of those things, but I think we need to be opening and just make. Issue customer. Salamanca actually has a Bill in the city council now to try to make some changes to some of those proposals. As I mentioned the rent laws are up now. So we really have to pay attention to that on the city and the state level. And the biggest thing that we can do is preserve the housing that we have the we will not we can't build faster than we're losing. And also, my hope is that at some point. There's a real joining of the homelessness and housing problem. The answer for homeless is housing, but we have to separate plans to separate commissions to separate deputy mayors. We really have to think about this all in one. We'll go to another question. Yeah. Go ahead. I'm from Brooklyn. My question is regardless of the outcome of the primaries. You still seem to have a lot of energy and conviction. So where does that come from? Thank you. Get it from my mom.

"You mentioned the possibility of public advocate Letitia James making history becoming the attorney general one of the things that of course, you've already made clear is that you have some intention for running for public advocate, if she is indeed successful as she is is favourite to be do you want to give folks listening folks in the room here, you're sort of thirty second rationale for pursuing that position if it becomes open? I if an win to strange makes history plan on being a inefficient candidate for public advocate. I actually hadn't planned on it. When I when I lost that night. I had a plan. If I wanna had a plan if I lost. It was not public advocate. I didn't plan on win losing which kind of what happened that night. And so I thought everything I went around the state actually using the public advocates office as an example of. What I thought the Lieutenant governor's office can be and people were very receptive to that even in places where they had never heard of what the public advocates office was. And and so it makes sense now that the actual offices available the one I'm using for example, why not go ahead and throw my hat in that ring and use it the way I think people intended to be used. I'm not running for mayor. I'm not going to try to springboard to run for mayor. I believe a lot of issues that people care about I've been in that kind of public advocacy role as a council member on so many issues and not just as a voice, but affectively foolish nation through policy through budget had a real impact in so many folks complement and say that you know, this office was descriptive of the work. I've been doing, and so it seems to me to make sense. It got a question. Go ahead..

I mean, she only one fifty three to forty six Jemaine Williams, and then Letitia James is poised poised to make history. Yes, she won forty. She had forty percents for teach out thirty one Sean Patrick Maloney twenty-five so Latisha James if she wins will become the first black female attorney general there, you go New York state, zephyr teacher was a big fizzle there appeared to be a moment where she was gaining everybody in the debate. They had for the attorney general everyone was ganging up on zephyr because they thought she was going to win. But she nothing. And then interesting though, those Democrats who aligned with Republicans five of them went down. Wow. Hard core left wing progressive. Democrats shows you that that Blue Wave is really big in this city. So well, the election leads off our big three defeated my voice. I really wanted Cynthia to knock down the governor also in the big three hurricane Florence. It's hanging over the Carolinas. It's gonna dump what twenty to forty inches of rain, and it's just going to sit just sit in it's parked. It is parked or over the Carolina. I have no idea where new Bern North Carolina is what people are on roofs of their houses and cars, there's like a waiting list of one hundred and fifty trying to get water rescues. That's the thing. It's the water is the flooding. It's the rescues. It's the rain is just gonna keep on coming. And of course, they're losing power by the hundreds of thousands. So it's it's it's not a pretty sight that would you like to just say, hey, you were told to get out. Coming thought of that. I don't want to be as harsh as you know, I agree with you though, because you see her a lot of these people interviewed I have weathered this hurricane whether that hurricane the problem is folks, you know, if something happens to you.

"This is max and murphy today we've been talking with attorney general candidate letitia james and then you just heard a clip of our conversation with attorney general candidate zephyr teach out they are to the four democratic candidates for torney general in this year's primary and we're hoping to have their competition also on the show so jarrett we've talked with letitia james today we heard from zephyr teach out last week what are your thoughts on what she had to say well just to piggyback on what we were talking about before went to that clip about letitia james sort of being the establishment candidate efforts which is the flip side of that i mean she is the insurgents insurgency ran against andrew cuomo two thousand fourteen and you know posted a respectable finish in that primary stirred up a lot of trouble with the working families party and the governor and now she is i would not say as much out cider but certainly one of the challenges i think to james in the in the race and her position i think reflects that or position the raises reflected by her policy stances much more willing to call out what she's culture of corruption one thing i think is interesting you know the answer that ticks james gave visibly corruption was about reform structural changes here talks about andrew cuomo in the culture of corruption interesting approach to how changes made and government how much of it is about the levers of power and how much is about people pulling and pushing it and i guess you could apply the same question to ice is the problem the structure of isis she suggested i think probably most cogent explanation i've seen of that of that position that we need to abolish it or is about the president of the top of this immigration infrastructure who's who's pushing buttons and pulling levers you can hear from zephyr teach out there's virtually no hesitation to sort of go after who she wants to go after and and she is running certainly the campaign for this to the left that we've seen so far in this torney general primary but she's also you know she by virtue of not having a lot of establishment support or you know she is not necessarily doesn't have to worry about who she might offend or what's toshi might step on a very advantageous place to be now does it make up for the advantages that someone like to shame has even someone like sean patrick maloney has being current member of congress with a base in with fundraising prowess and such that's remains to be seen but she teach out certainly has advantages in terms of how she's able to run the campaign and we've even seen her repeatedly say i'm calling on my opponents to join me in not taking corporate money or calling on the governor to make certain proclamations such as you know giving the attorney general power to you know make criminal investigations as a blanket issues andrew cuomo wanted when he was attorney general but has not granted the attorney general's under him interesting and also we are still open for phone calls at three four seven three five oh eight one eight and what's fascinating about that point ben is that you know there are a lot of candidates who take that route either for strategic or for reasons of their beliefs and then when they're elected they have to dial it back a bit because governing requires compromise or is deemed require compromise the position of turn general actually would afford you the ability if you wanted to continue to be the kind of annoying outsider to a point i think there was a point where minute andrew cuomo hit loggerheads and there was a debate about the use of banks and funds who's making troll of that and i think after that there was some more effort to be have a little more friendship between the two so there's a limit to it but but it is part of the job i think if you want to set the agenda yourself and go your own way and not necessarily a worry about whether you're pleasing legislators across or the person in the executive office and before we get to call that that is certainly has one parallel to the position public advocate and we've absolutely seen tisch james in that role go out there on certain issues she's pushed the body camera issue she's filed a bunch of lawsuits she passed she.
