Multiple current and former. Staffers have come forward accusing the governor of inappropriate behavior and in some cases sexual harassment which cuomo has denied curious on a call with reporters. Today women have a right to come forward and be heard. And i encourage that fully but i also wanna be clear. There is still a question of the truth. I did not do what has been alleged period where also reporting that cuomo's aids have called former staffers to see if they'd spoken with any of the accusers. All of this in addition to questions about nursing home deaths earlier in the pandemic or leading to calls for his resignation including from top democrats the wall street. Journal's jimmy kind covers state politics and albany and he's been reporting on this story high. Jimmy thanks so much for joining me today. Be with you ed murray. So jimmy bring us up to speed here. Can you talk about these allegations. And the pressure governor cuomo is now under well. The governor's facing mounting pressure on two fronts really the current and former female aides. Who say that. He has behaved inappropriately toward them or in some cases sexually harassed them. And there's also investigations and criticism over how the state handled covid nineteen in nursing homes as of friday morning more than ten democratic members of the congressional delegation have called for the governor to resign and on thursday. The new york state assembly said it would open an impeachment investigation into the governor which could set table potentially for the first impeachment of new york governor since nineteen thirteen. What my colleagues. And i reported on thursday evening was that after the first woman to accuse the governor of sexual harassment came forward in december and that woman's name is lindsay boylan aides and allies of the governor reached out to other former staffers to contact them and see if they had heard from lindsey boylan. We spoke with. At least one former staffer a woman named analysts who said she took the call as intimidation aides to the governor including his senior adviser rich as a party. have said that they were talking to staff because they discerned ms boylan was also talking to former aides. Mr as a party said that the calls were not intended as intimidation. And we should note that spokeswoman for the governor has said that ms boylans claims of sexual harassment are not true. As you've noted pressure has been steadily mounting on the governor to resign how to what we've heard today change the sort of dynamic surrounding the governor right now well governor cuomo finds himself isolated in addition to calls from republicans in the new york state legislature for impeachment. There are some democrats who also support taking that step on thursday almost sixty current democratic members of the new york state senate signed onto a statement calling for cuomo to resign. Members of the delegation jumping on board on friday just adds to that pressure. The governor is short on friends and allies at this point. He is hanging his hat on an independent review being overseen by state. Attorney general letitia james into the accusations of inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment. He's gotten some cover from officials like us. Senate majority leader chuck schumer who say that. That review should play out and has confidence that it will be thorough but increasingly the dances in albany are tipping and what we're also seeing. Is that more. People are coming forward to tell stories about interactions with the governor in the workplace. So i think that the situation with the governor is changing not just day by day but hour by hour and we'll have to see if there comes a point when he makes the calculation that it's too much for him to effectively govern or when leaders of the state legislature. Get to a point where they want him to leave and see no choice but to move forward with an impeachment proceeding and of course. The impeachment inquiry could be found in. Cuomo's favor now. How is governor. Cuomo responded to this. He held a call with reporters this afternoon. What did he say. He said he was not going to resign. He said that the people of the state elected him and that politicians calling for his resignation. Who has a friday included senior members democratic members of new york's congressional delegation. They had their own motivations politicians. Who don't know a single fact but yet foam a conclusion and then opinion are in my opinion.

"Hopefully, that won't be the case, but it is interesting that the blouse you did a few weeks ago when some protests broke out, say that they basically were not allowed under the pause order, and as you mentioned, he's not gone back to that line this week. Because I think he understands the outpouring. Feeling is just too great for that kind of a argument to work, but. This ties into what we're going to focus on in the special third half hour of our program today we'll have on the district attorney of Brooklyn Mr. Eric Gonzalez to talk about. Not just these protests and the policing issues of the moment, but the bigger questions about the criminal justice reform conversation the discussions about racism and. And this not never ending cycle of. Violence against black people perpetrated by some officers the law. That's what we'll do in the last part of our show from six o'clock on before that Ben will have on a couple of canucks. Yes we're continuing some of our exploration here on the show in other work that Gotham Gazette and see limits are doing of the congressional races that are coming up this month. you know folks obviously have been focused on. The and its fallout so many issues related to that then we have as we've been discussing here. you know the incident in Minneapolis and everything that's tied to that and the reaction, but there were also elections happening this month here in new. York, A. Huge slate of races will be on the ballot month There's the June twenty Third Primary Day, but of course there's also early voting starting June thirteenth going to June twenty-first, and as we discussed on the show before all voters can vote absentee gubernatorial order, but you have to get an absentee ballot application.

"Opposite. Jarrod. How're you doing today? I am doing all right, Ben, how're you? Doing okay, I mean obviously it's. It's a time of. A lot of struggle and a lot of wrestling with what's going on in the world. Things seem even more. Serious and troubling and tragic than even when we were just sort of focused on a deadly devastating pandemic that was having such public health and social economic impacts, and now of course we have you know a great deal of unrest related to police brutality, and and all the comes bad and the protests. We've seen here in New York. City, and of course around the state around the country, and even around the world. Obviously is beginning with a very very unsettling. Devastating incident. I guess now about ten days ago in Minneapolis video that we all saw a horror. We all share it in and then of course over the past several days. So a lot of peaceful protests. Very. Activity and a police response that has come under a lot of scrutiny, and you're right I think partly of course. The covid nineteen death count's in. Numbers and case counts were coming down. We were beginning to turn the page at least the next phase of dealing with that pandemic, but is remarkable how the events of the past few days regarding policing and protests have totally pushed to these deny mind, anyway Kovic to the to the back burner, which is something I would have thought was possible. Two weeks ago. And important elements to what's going on one of which which is this idea that while for months people really mostly doing what they were asked to do. By public health officials and other government officials in terms of trying to reduce the spread of the virus. You have this major incident, and of course everything that it's a it's attached to I. Think One important thing to remind. Remind many people who seem to not quite grasp this is that these protests are not simply about one incident in Minneapolis. I think you know. Many people are in tune with that New York City. Where obviously, there was a very similar incident with Eric Garner six years ago, but but still some some seem not to be some seem to not quite get that. Dad. This is about much more than than one incident in Minneapolis, but but as we sort of see the response to that, there's this. Really, important question of whether these mass protests will have a negative impact on the city's fight against the pandemic, and some of those concerns have been raised, but we also interestingly saw the mayor sort of never really try to tell. People were still in two vulnerable position with this virus. You should not be. Gathering to protest, and maybe he just realized it would be futile to say that, but I think that's been one of the in the big picture, one of the most important elements of how these things have converged. Yes I was talking about that and on Saturday, I covered the protests that originated in Harlem with a rally, and then a march, the FDR drive and I was struck. Almost everyone was wearing masks and I was very impressed by that, but it just at first, began trying to do the social distancing, but it became impossible, and so I think most people that March and it was several hundred people came into contact with more bodies than they had since the second week of March, and so I was concerned, both for myself and my family and everyone there. There that it might be if there was any disease to spread like covid that it could be an event. We look back at as a place where it spread rapidly..

That have you know they. They make their way into even five year olds life experience and so for for for me and for her and I to have this opportunity to be together and for her to be engaged in what I'm doing and seeing me Find ways to fight back on what I view as tremendous unfairness in this country with Donald Trump and beyond donald trump. You know some extreme inequality. I'm so proud and and seeing her Part of that inspires me. You know to be candid running for office. Running for Congress on any level is an any sort of district I I would assume it's a real challenge and that's what I hear you know. I'm running to replace a long term incumbent. WHO's been there for a very long time? It's not You know you don't wake up every day A and I feel like it's a day at the beach and what inspires me is seeing my daughter and knowing that it's for her and her generation one doing this like I you know I grew up right on the edge of the middle class I many more opportunities than my parents Because of their hard work and because of the infrastructure structure in the social safety net of this country and I worry very much that that is disappearing I see it and my extended family that they are not getting. You know kids growing up graduating graduating from high school now so and have the same outlook That I had opportunity and ability to improve my life and to make something of it. And it's it's IT'S I. I refuse to sit silently and let that be the new reality for the next generation. I mean some of the statistics. Sure you you hear an alarming all of us you know. The bottom twenty percents economically speaking of kids have less than ten percent chance of doing better than their parents. Forget getting into the middle class. Forget any sort of You know larger metric just doing better than their parents. If there's anything that says the American dream it's that our kids will do better than we have or have the opportunity to do that. And there's so many indicators whether we talked about health or home ownership or ability to make a living to have good paying jobs that that have a safety net All of these things are the the big thing I haven't mentioned Thus far so much climate change. It's all of these. Things are real issues issue that Having my daughter see what I'm doing Just give me more. You know inspiration to keep going 'cause she and your your children different. You know. This is why I'm doing it. It's it in spite of how challenging it is to run for office at a mom She's wanting to doing it and I do you bring her with me everywhere. I can And I go back to the personality. 'cause this is for her you know. I only have one right now someday. I hope to have another kid. They may be different personalities audy's but it works for her and it works for me and I. She's been more outgoing than I am. So sometimes when I look at her and I see what she's doing well she's out there. You know being a Ham I gotta get out even it was. I can't so that's how our relationship works Between she and I it's It's a lot of fun at then. One of the most poignant parts of my life. You probably did not expect when you got into this that you would be referenced in a letter by the president terrain odd. God what was that experience like. What's funny I mean? This is one of those examples going back to what you just asked me. I was picking my daughter up from school rule because she loves when I can do that. It's just fun for her and and And we're walking. I start getting these emails and text messages saying you. You know the the president is talking about you know saying. You're this bizarre socialist or I and she usually when I pick her up. Go to get ice cream so I tried to to be normal and not really react to any of it we get the diner we get ice cream and then she said mom. Can I have your phone so I can play Plato Games and I said no I have to do something right now and I try to be honest as I can. I said well you know the president. He mentioned me and she said what Donald Trump mentioned you. He's a bad man. I mean that's what she said but you know trying to explain it in the context of everything that's going on. I you know I don't go too much into it with her. But it was one of those surreal moments In my life where well. I'm very clear that he's grabbing at straws. It's very clear earlier looking for anyone. This president to blame but himself for the exact situation that event. And that's really unfortunate. It's just another great example of what he needs to be impeached impeach because he's The kind of person who cannot be held accountable Up his own a quarter to will never accept responsibility and it was. You know it's bizarre. But not surprising that he tries to use scare tactics particularly aimed at women who are speaking out in any way shape or form To advances dances goal. That's true his standard practice right to call me in a sort of paint a broad brush of all of this the Socialists who are leading the party in a certain direction and that's why this is happening to him. It's it's it's bizarre. You know you gotta you gotTa Laugh at. That's how Terminated he is by by women men and by You know what's happening to him. And he sort of shows his cards in that way so wasn't scary at all. It was sort of very bizarre. But you know I I did have a memorial I said. Well what the pressure that I and many many other people like yourself have been applying to push for accountability and push for impeachment has been working working and he's seen it and his party seen it and it won't be forgotten of course now we know we're moving forward with impeachment. And so you know I it was. It was a surreal all day and and at the same time you know good. I'm glad he's he's felt the pressure. I'm glad that he's seen what we've been doing on our videos and talking about out All the abuses of his office You know the inhumane treatment that he's he's been sanctioning along the border it means he's that that has is reach him and I am glad so so I if our listeners would like to help out your campaign what are some ways they can do. Well thank you so much. Well you know we the the biggest way we're GONNA win. This is by getting our message out there and visibility I think we're we're moving. I'm very much in that direction and as much as people can continue to You know talk about everything we're doing. Journalists can cover our race and cover all the important issues that we're trying to address some housing climate change to mental health. That is really important if people can donate to our campaign pain We're going in probably the most critical period for the next six months as we really digging deep and field ops and that just means for layman's terms. uh-huh you said knocking on every door meeting every potential voter As much as they can and I think You know there are many reasons to vote for change at this moment in time. Time and vote for someone who's spent their career in public service and it's really focused on addressing extreme inequality climate change. And I think it would also be real nice to see the first woman elected since odd second district and fifty years and in the district that includes the Statue of Liberty district that includes so many cultural economic historic Important important aspects of not just mirror but also our country and We're GONNA Fight Hallway and I've been very inspired by you know all the the support that we've received in on everything from twitter and person in our community and People can keep keep Carrying our message and support US financially. They they can. They can do it on our website Lindsay with an e foiling dot com and We're we're so appreciative of every opportunity to to talk about you. Know the change us to see. And when is the primary June twenty third twenty twenty i. It's so confusing in a presidential year especially in New York power. Konare can have three primaries this year. I it's Yeah No. It's very confusing. And and part of that you know let me say one thing. The democratic like establishment. Not just in New York but in in across the country has has has made things confusing and complicated by design to really really keep the same group of people making decisions for all of us in power and one of the great benefits that we have electing a lot knew a lot of new leaders later in the state legislature. This past year in New York was some election law changes that means that we've consolidated the primaries Outside of the presidential missile primary this year. So everyone who's voting in a primary outside of voting for president will vote on June twenty third. What used to be in New York people for President on eight April Twenty Eighth So that will be a few months before and then we'll be the top. The top of the ticket vote that people come out to vote on the primary in June but historically there were all these different dates so only people who had a lot of flexibility in their schedule could come out to do it and they had to do it on that date now. We'll have because because of the mentioned these electoral changes early voting. No fault absentee voting We tried that out this past election cycle in November and it it went very well and those are just going to be you know. These changes are really going to help candidates like myself innovate and reach people. And it's going to get people like myself who didn't always have time. You know a lot of flexibility or my husband to go to go vote that one day that they can they can they can get in and get votes. So it's GonNa it'd be a lot easier for people to actually cast their ballots this time around all right excellent. Well that is very good news.

"Of the dumb cast family of podcasts. And I am on today with Lindsay Boylan who is running for Congress in the New York. Tenth District Highlands. Hi So nice to chat with you. Yeah you to start off. Just tell me a little bit about your background and why you're running for Congress absolutely so I'm the daughter of marine and Mom who who had her first kid at sixteen and a single mother so to really tough parents who really want the best for me and my sister and the American dream for for their kids I grew up in San Diego moved to Virginia. Part of that whole defense and military. You know upbringing. I went to college Massachusetts And at Wellesley The The the big feminists and Fan of Hillary Clinton inspired me to go there. And then I came to New York and I've been A public servant for pretty much my whole life having started in urban planning and parks management in the city and then moving onto the state of New York Working directly ultimately for the governor As a secretary for Economic Development OATMAN and housing I have a five year old daughter and that's been wonderful husband and Really everything I'm doing is is focused. On how how to make the future better for my daughter than what. I'm seeing right now in this moment in time and you know I would say probably of this this this moment in time and people running and getting the in the process of challenging incumbency and Democrats like I am in this case. It's more about. How do we actually make the changes that we need need The tenth Congressional district by different accounts is the most unequal district in the country. So it includes Wall Street and it includes some of the wealthiest areas in the country and then we have thousands of people living in substandard conditions in night show which is public housing in New York. City Some of which are without heat and hot water for long periods of time during the winter right now I just posted an article about that. It's not enough to continue politics as usual. We need a serious transformation in dealing with extreme inequality dealing with climate change And then a third prompt for me that I hear a lot about my care. A lot about his mental health In addition to physical health and all of these things. We've been talking about for a long time but we haven't been acting on them and I think it's really going to require a whole new generation of leaders. I should to advance on the issues and the problems of our day. I'll give you one quick example I worked for the state of New York and Helps Negotiate Hundreds of millions of dollars to go to nature as I mentioned New York City's public housing in the last legislative cycle. But I was there and that felt like a win. Felt like we were moving towards Improving the reality of people living in public housing. But the real reality is we need tens of billions of dollars to fix Nitra and that needs to come. I'm from the federal government so much of the conversation for the last decade at least has been an absence of the city and our state leadership an absence of the federal leadership and in the city and the state leading and we really need a federal government that works. We need to Congress that can can make dealing with these big issues actionable. And that's if I'm running talked some about campaigning in an urban environment you know I think a lot about this. I live in a pretty urban area in the south side of Chicago You Know I. It's very different than sort of driving from house to house and knocking on doors. You know what what does that. Look like how do you. How do you reach the people? How do you make sure that they know what you're doing in your campaign and I and get them excited about voting everywhere possible? I mean it's it's A mix of throwing every kind of solution to interact with people so here point. It's not always easy to get into building some of the big buildings I've been kicked out of a few. You have search nations about it but beyond being just an urban district. It's very gerrymander stretch. So we have everything from Columbia University and the upper west side and then it runs all the way in the west side and Lower Manhattan and jumps over into Brooklyn And includes as far as borough park and so I'm I'm at subway entrances public spaces Increasingly will be in the new year as we get closer to the primary. I am knocking on doors wherever I can. And and then finding different ways to engage with people whether it's on facebook whether it's online being at various community events community board meetings any and every way that we can to communicate you know what we're trying to achieve she were trying to deal with extreme inequality through housing and and Healthcare changes and respond to climate change. Having spent a lot of my career in in working for it through the city and working for the state. I have some of that connectivity. And it's really all about continuing to every day the out there and that's how you win and I think particularly in a challenger race is is is is showing up at every possible thing whether it's something and you know the mental health community nonprofits that I engage engaged with And that's the fun part honestly and there's a lot of stuff about you know fundraising call time The back and forth politics that can sort of bog. You down on the most fun the most meaningful experiences I have are are interacting with people and I've had some really powerful experiences. I it's it's why I am running and it inspires you to keep keep going. It's challenging of it is what are people saying when you talk to them you know do to people think about congressional races. Are they excited about twenty twenty. I assume a lot of people are thinking sort of Presidential race than in maybe not so much on congressional races but you know to they are they engaging on the issues are they excited. Yes no I think you know. There's no question that if time where Ev- everyone on your aft with is is glued. What's happening whether it be discussions around holding Donald Trump accountable You know with impeachment yesterday of course and it's going the Senate people. Are you know if not watching their hearing and reading and staying up to date about what's happening on the national stage and certainly with the presidential race and the debate. There's a lot of interest in appetite for constant media around that what I would say that I found Not really surprising thing but reinforces you know what I started with as when I knock on a door even if people are voting regularly so these are active active people in our community entity in terms of the the electoral process. They're not thinking about. WHO's my number Congress? WHO's my member of City Council? WHO's my state senator? WHO's my state assembly person? They're thinking about. Who is helping me with my problems? Who is trying to respond to things that are creating a problem or challenge for me and my community and so they'll they'll talk about the housing crisis and the cost of living here which happens to be the number one issue and everyone in my community boards in the district? They're concerned turned about climate change. And they're not. They're not so interested in getting into the specifics about who who is their leader. In what different bodies they want problem solved. And frankly that's why I'm running. 'cause I spent all of this time my whole career working in the city and then working in the state Trying to grapple with problems to make our city and and our district work better in various ways but at the end of the day we need to see it solutions and we need a federal government if that works and that of the whole life cycle of politics and the different roles that people have is the part that is the most ineffective. It's not it's we're not. It seemed change and so when I knock on doors even if people have been voting for the sitting congressmen for the last several extra cycles very rarely do I get someone who says you you know. I'm committed to voting for Congressman Nadler. What they say is this is what I care about? Are you going to address that. And how are you going to do that. This is what has not then responded to this is this is what my family is struggling with. Are you gonNA. Are you GONNA be here. Are you going to show up every day. Are you going to be in this community community. So you know exactly what we need. And you're going to advocate for that and make changes in DC. And so I was. You know I'm running against someone who's not had a serious challenge is pretty much in his thirty year career from running to be the first woman to represent the district even though this is a liberal district in fifty years and I think when people see that because there hasn't been a challenge. There's sometimes getting their doorknobs for a member of Congress for their member of Congress for the first time in many cases that's the reality and so they're excited to tell me what what they need what they need to see changed So I've been pretty excited by that point. It's you know a a lotta door knocking to a lot of creativity and finding ways to get people's doors But once I get there I've been you know so moved by how much people really want. Want their leaders to to listen and you act on what they tell them. So you're an alum of the vote. Run that lead program So tell me some about how how it. It helps to have the training in that network and especially when you're running for office as a woman taking on a a man who's been in Congress for a long time. Yeah I mean essential hugely helpful You know everyone. Everyone from their leadership and and Erin have been enormously helpful supportive. You know the the basics of women running for office is that they we may consider it but it takes a very long time to actually do it because they're all these barriers to thinking it's possible it's it's the sense of who should run for office. Do I have enough preparation Russian and my there do am I telling enough there's there's a tremendous amount You know unfortunately that goes into the self doubt that keeps women out of the process. Ashby incumbency thinking that. There's no way to get around all of the challenges that keep women and moms like myself from running and having having come together with in my training a huge group of women from every background with many moms like myself like yourself it was inspiring thing and I continue to connect with them. I've always invited to things and I've made friends with with women that I met there who are also running you know. I've met a few fellow candidates who are running in Congress in the city And and and we're in this battle together. I mean it is a battle. We need to see significant changes. Not just in the policies we make but also so in who's making the decisions in in halls of power in rooms that matter and the only way to do that is to have a critical mass of people. Who really leap believe like you do and I do? Who are wanting sea change? And that's exactly the friendly there. They've been infinitely supportive and I've just been appreciative about. So you mentioned you have a five year old. I have a five year old as well and I know that can be an exciting times challenging age. How how do you involve your daughter in your campaign? How how do you do it? Having a young child and campaigning at the same time. And you know what What's what's her recommendations which you have for other moms of school age kids who are thinking about this? Sure sure. We'll you know like like you know we all know his MOMS and and His parents that our kids are not a one-size-fits-all so I'll preface this by saying. I have a very outgoing daughter who loves to be in in the limelight. Look to be engaged in things so I mean she was with me at the impeachment. Rally the night the evening of the impeachment and she comes with me you too so many community events. She loved it she loved meeting people. she loves that engagement..

Chasing you like at which point are your dream chasing. You and i think when you're like when you're talking about. It's usually people who are talking about doing something artistic. It's these stories are generally not like i had this during bringham dream of being an accountant and i'm finally account you know what i mean like inside it to pursue my dream of being an accountant at the age of at the old age of forty five when i was clearly past is my prime for using excel. It's never usually not that scenario. It's usually something kind of more in the arts or whatever an athletic thing dance. Thank you starting your own business. That's that's the version there you go also. There's there's there's really old people who go to medical school. I don't like that really fucking old people that goes. I remember my brother who is eligible went to school with someone who was much older. It was like an interesting you know. It was just like an interesting thing that they were doing such a crazy career change powers about he and i were in a maybe a couple other friends. We were joking about writing a screenplay about a bunch of fortysomething comedians who all quit on mass and go to medica- go to dental school together yeah but that's the deal that kind of like a reverse of the sort of those movies usually are and then one of them gets caught sneaking out and doing open mics at night and like no all right.

"Woman. I think that they're it may be. It's so few we've had historic Paradigm Gang Yeah so few women in the seed of of of control or a seat at the table whatever it is that instead people get to these these things have been perpetuated that really are just very binary and not at all like a nuance world live in and I think it's that's why it's important that things changed to me because as you you you you we saw in the last election cycle. All people are either in women are just angry or they're you know to submissive and there's never never somewhere yeah I think the everything on this year right and in terms of like norm building like we I we only ever saw it was neither like sex of the city drinking or or bad mom's drinking. We haven't seen very very just which haven't seen very much representation of other stuff. No I think that women also with the hashtag mommy juice and this was just my initial thought this wasn't I haven't thought it out so I may change my mind leader after somebody emails me how stupid I am. I get emails for like I did not agree with Oh yes and impartial quest dumb same business I think with the mommy thing that's also a way for women who feel they need a moment for themselves to relate two other people on the Internet at the end of the day. I liked to have a glass of wine just for like ten minutes for me and so. I think that that's like obviously when I say there's downside he'll call. I don't mean like people having a glass of wine at the end of the day because that's their aim where they take their moment for themselves and so I I do think that that's not necessarily that may be a place where people find an ability to take a little bit of time for themselves and my other thought was I do feel also recently started. We're watching madman like you were saying we have this visual of like men making business deal dark liquors and cigars and there's never women in the room. It's just dudes after they played golf with other men and then they have a dark mark a whiskey or a Scotch and then they make money deals and never women on there with the whiskey or the golf clubs making money deals true they make the same Gillette razors for men and women than the women ones are more expensive so how does that. I'll add adams against all unfair all of it unfair no but that's such a good point. It's really about our perception of like and like the men can handle the alcohol. You know what I mean. It was like a man thing to do with a big old cigar after we played something and then I'm going to buy a whole company and do some insider trading all right you guys. I'm curious to know what the people think the nation's think of the new sobriety movement and you know Oh. Are you rolling your eyes. Are you kind of sober in a non preachy way. Where are you with this? <hes> hit me up. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Okay you guys. That's the end of the show. How do you you feel the feel good? This is this is awesome.

I'm sober because it's unhealthy not to be so the need you must be really unhealthy V you or not sober you know what I mean is. Are we just virtue signaling and is that annoying Lebron a you. Have your hand raised. I think that there are people that are virtue signallers virtue signallers and there are people that are just that's the thing that they wanna do in their life and there is both happening at the same time we know the people that are in our life that are let you know they're vegans begins spock yourself because it's so annoying and it's constantly go yourself. I've got a gluten free muffin and I know what I'm doing. I don't even tell people just like this works for me and it's I've wanted to doing my life and I i. I WANNA feel comfortable with it but I'm not like throwing it. In People's faces or making people feel like their choices are bad and I think that both of those things exist there are the virtue signals who just like WanNa let you know and you're like and then there are the people that are just finding what works for them and I think it's important that they feel supported and like they're not weird and that there are places for them to go and I think both of those things can happen at the same time and we can just look at the virtue what you signallers and be like I know that deep inside you must feel shattered an empty because you have to push your shit in everybody else's faces yeah and I feel empathy and for you because my therapist told me to and I think it's yeah you there. I'm GONNA leave that there and I think it's great I but I would say is I think it's I would rather have that whatever the person's doing because there isn't a one-size-fits-all box for people who don't want to drink as much and drinking is such a pervasive part of so many cultures here and globally I would love for it to be even more acceptable to do something of different because Sony people struggle with it. I mean I can think of so many people I know in my family life that anything that is a different different model for people choices that are healthier for themselves. I'm all for it. I don't care if it's putting on a shirt. I don't care what it is. I think it's this one I think is is great for people. If it works for people really agree. I'm also I mean there are some really big downsides alcohol right right right of course <hes>. Can I also just point out something that I feel like is annoying about our discourse around alcohol which is that. There's something gendered about the way we talk about. Alcohol and women like it's like you're either. You're either trying to live out some sort of sex in the city fantasy or your fucking mom who so frazzled from motherhood that she she needs like her hashtag mommy juice or whatever to like make it through the day you know and both of those <hes> depictions of women in alcohol are just so irritating to me like I don't even what I was drinking. I was also anything that has to do with like shitting on sex in the city also irritating because it was a show about some ladies who were friends like we need to all come down what about like the cultural importance of what that show did or didn't do or whatever the fuck anyways but like I think both of I when I was a drinker I had fun and it wasn't a big deal wasn't about there is no gendered. I didn't feel like I was living out any of these gendered <hes> fantasies that we have about women and alcohol. I think it's all part yeah. I think it's all part of the same thing. I mean.

Have you heard people talk about mindful drinking or being sober curious because they're now seems to be a movement of people who aren't alcoholics but they're sober but they're not doing your grandma's sobriety you guys is they're doing a different kind of sobriety like where you meet up with other people in your sober together which is sort of a nice novel idea New York City. I mean have you guys done any of this like a meeting up with people and being sober I I mean you know I am so I I was reading this article. I was thinking about it and I think sober is a particular term usually for are people in a program right who are not just not drinking. They're also not doing a lot of other things and it has to do with the process they went to of like because it was a <hes> an issue in their life that affected many things things like the term sobriety is often <hes> like I'm careful with because I feel like it's I don't WanNa disrespect people who are like in a or A._A.. To be in Rehab for a long time or you know what I mean yeah you want honor that I agree I definitely want to honor that and then there's people that are making lifestyle changes yeah for like health reasons and or they've realized they feel better when they don't drink and it's wonderful that accompanies and places these are making options for people to go out and have fun with others and not drink but still have like a fun beverage. It's incredible. Actually I think it's really I think it's really important because you realize how much drinking is a part of our culture I was I can only hang out with people when I'm wasted I can only let's get after up. You know what I mean or like. I'm not going to being social unless or I also notice if somebody who doesn't drink how uncomfortable sometimes other people get when you're not drinking even though you're like no I don't. I don't care if you drink. I'm just you know what I mean. Don't it's so funny because I okay so I do think the one of the things that happening is this movement of people who aren't Alco who wore not alcoholics but are just right <music> as you're saying for health reasons or for whatever reason <hes> and maybe they were like on a mild end of the alcoholism spectrum you know what I mean. We're not like they hit a rock bottom. It's not like you know none of that kind of happened but but they were just like yeah things. Were just like not feeling well. They're like I didn't burn my house. Nobody had sex with too many people Jane Yeah exactly and I think that's kind of. I think more 'em were entering an age of nuance..

I think we're probably anti Russian during the Cold War whatever like thinking get riled up by some anti Russian don meddle in our election sentiment yeah. I feel like that should be the drum or bank should be a big Ravi more get it out. There and I also WanNa say it's possible that we are drum banging that drum and then the media's not covering covering say this every it's absolutely possible. It's certainly unclear what it is that the media will cover the amine be. That's actually a part of the discourse because how many other things were going on you know in Congress so many in a previous episode we listed like four different bills they were trying to bring about election meddling and insecure in the elections and nothing has happened in in the media doesn't cover for those bills so there we can't even get public opinion <hes> pub to pressure <hes> Republican congressman to do anything about it will as I just having been a few months into this race. The things that get covered are things that <hes> <hes> you know are already. Snowballs is <hes> is Jerry Nadler the next Joe Crowley. You know it's <hes> does it connect to something that has gotten pressed before so I totally agree. I mean the one thing that I don't know how much it's been talked about but having read the Muller report if you look at volume one you know there's sort of two large ways that <hes> Russians interfered with the government they are with our election. They <hes> you know basically hacked and leaked information related related to the Clinton campaign and the D._N._C. and then they put in tons of bots to act as if they were supporters of the trump campaign so they were clearly doing these two large things hacking and and plants of people that were reporting and then Muller doesn't make the association that it was a criminal intent but Russia absolutely did infiltrate <hes> voters basically through these boss and and and campaign officials deals with unwittingly is sort of how it's painted and I think there are two problems that that creates for Republicans wanting to talk about election security one. Is You sort of have to say yeah. We were duped duped into that feel real good to say there's there's if you believe this happened. Then you believe that the Ju- hard and then secondly I think just as important as people are afraid to go against anything. Donald on trump says now I mean he after his as I understand it after his obviously openly racist diatribe against four congresswomen he became more popular and the Republicans ends error the G._O._p.. Members are sitting there and they're saying okay. I guess we'll just go along with this because people like him and that is <hes>..
