Understanding the Two Best-Selling Proponents of Critical Race Theory
"George Lynn Oy, Research professor of Public Policy and Political Science, University of Maryland, Maryland describe CRT through the writings of the two best selling proponents. Robin D'Angelo and Abraham X Candy. CRT begins with the perception that race is the primary way to identify and analyze people and consequently posits a racial hierarchy that supposedly exists with whites on the top and blacks at the bottom. Individual behaviors in significant because everyone in America functions within a society of systemic racism, structural racism and institutional racism. CRT affirms this perspective by pointing to various existing racial disparities, which it claims that the result of racist discrimination. So, according to this perspective, efforts by public and private organizations to enforce civil rights laws and employment, housing contracting education, etcetera. They're either insufficient or pointless. CRT offers two responses to this situation. First, all whites must admit their culpability by confessing the advantages white supremacy confers on them. Failure to do so reflects white fragility. An instinctive defensiveness, the white race said to display after they have been trained about their investment racism. Second, individual whites cannot hide behind any personal history of nondiscrimination. The desirability of race neutral laws or policies because the collective action of their race has been oppressive, and it goes on, folks. This is what the people Who believe in this are saying and writing. And reaching millions of people and reaching a kids in classrooms who have no choice but to listen to this stuff. And for Chuck Todd on Meet the Press and NBC To act like this is manufactured when the evidence is choking like smog. And for this full Cornell Belcher. To try to try and turn it on Republicans and Donald Trump just shows you what a sleazeball this guy is.

We'll talk about some details behind that we've got an update from dan is on tesla's stock an update on gigabyte lynn news on tussles referral program. And an interesting tweet from elon. Musk that has caused a lot of speculation. Also quick the stock tussle today finishing up about two percent to six hundred and sixteen dollars sixty cents. That compared to the nasdaq also. Strong day up nine tenths of a percent are. Let's start off here with the initial reviews of the model s. so we have one for motor trend. We have one from automotive journalist. Jason kameda whenever tesla has a new vehicle. I always look forward to these. It's kind of a nice time to celebrate what tesla has done with that new vehicle and unlike what we see business news wise from cnbc or reuters. This is automotive new. So the writing is different style. there's a lot of primitives. Nice compliments towards tesla and sometimes some really beautiful writing which again you tend not to see too much in business. News look at trends review here first. So of course. The question that everyone has undermined around this vehicle is can't actually do zero to sixty in under two seconds motor trends answer. Yes but with some stipulation so they actually spent kind of the i. I don't know half or third of this article talking about the requirements that they had for their sixty test run which i think unfortunately it detracts a little bit from their main takeaways. Which of course. We'll talk about as well but they been a fair amount of time talking about how Wanted them to run on a specific track with specific tests conditions. One of those conditions being that the drag strip needed to be prepared with hd which motor trend says as a quote thick black resin that allows cars to accelerate quicker than is possible on normal roads and quote framed that way it does look a little bit manipulative or suspect. But it's not like the hd is common this is a substance that most drag strips are using and using in competition so this is not so unusual thing in quarter mile races. It's just not how motor trend. Test their cars so they wanted to make sure that that part was clear so understanding that they write quote. The plaid model s zips down the quarter mile in a staggeringly quick. Nine point. two five seconds up one hundred fifty two point six miles per hour.

"lynn" Discussed on Five Things with Lynn Hirschberg
"Teddy bear. It could be the guitar. You smashed on saturday night live. You know it kind of is actually. That was probably my fourth baritone. That i smashed and what i love about. The baritone guitar is that they're very cheap. At least the dan. Electro bertone's are super cheap and it makes it accessible and they also just sound really warm a lot of the time when you buy a cheap guitar. It's like super bright and and weird and you have to get it setup. But every baritone i've bought from dan electro like am i have my sound guy. Morgan change the tuning pegs. Or whatever but i for the most part the way it sounds is why i gravitate towards so the first time i played one was when i met my producer. Tony berg and i had the song talk about songs. I don't connect with anywhere. There's a song called chelsea. I record that. I don't know what i'm talking about I was playing it. And i had been tuning my guitar to like c. Sharp tuning for years like a just a normal acoustic guitar and they would come like i would literally unwind two strings on accident. It was so low and he was like dude. You know they just make these. They make guitars that can handle that and he handed me one and i wrote five songs. And they're my favorite songs off my first record including motion sickness and smoke signals. It just totally changed the way i thought about music and it has continued to be sometimes. I'm like oh. I should mix it up and try another instrument and see if it inspires a song. Rarely that happens is usually like. I need to play a baritone again. So why did you decide to smash it with. He's townsend thing or was this just something you've always wanted to do. It was more like a bright eyes thing right i. That's why there's a amazing video of them doing road to joy on. Tv where they all smash their insurance end very last minute. I like sumed that he had better stuff to do. Honestly nate walcott. Who's from bright is who played on my records. But i think about a lot of people who plan my records like composers and then i take other musicians. Who like tour. And maybe don't play on records all the time to like. Learn the parts but i never played with the trumpet player before so it was like all figured out. I'll find somebody. And and then nate was like wait. I wanna play snl. and then. I remembered this amazing video of him smashing his trumpet. And i was like. It's too last minute to make you do that. Nate but i'm definitely it was good tar and people do it all the time but i felt like i wanted to email the company before like i wanted to an electro and they like sent me an instructional video and how to do it right out of people can't do it and it was hard. It was harder than i thought for sure but it looks hard. It lived actually a you. Were giving it your all. I was impressed. Yeah and snl was so excited. And i think they like an element of something else you know. It's hard when you play just qatar-based music to even look exciting at all on stage. So i think they were pretty stoked and yeah it was like a last minute decision and so fun and now you're gonna do it all the time totally. Absolutely i think conor actually did it like every night with his band d'esposito he just bought. I think it was the same exact qatar actually and he just bought a million and would smash them every night. Did you keep the pieces or did you just leave them there. Yeah you know. They're actually up for auction for glad. That's so great. Yeah which is great. I love that. Did they reconstruct or they sort of frame the well. Actually i think i mean i basically just took a whole lot of the side of it. It's definitely not it's still kind of like intact. But there's a whole whole missing in the side. So yeah i love. That are dealers touring. You must miss playing live. Yes so much. Yeah but you're back in the studio correct. I mean out of the studio. I'm definitely not working on a record. But i get asked do like whether it's seeing backups. With someone else or a cover of somebody's song or do christmas songs every year. I've been in the studio lot. What's your favorite christmas song. I mean i'm partial to if we make it through december which is what i did last year which is a merle haggard song. It's so depressing. But everybody on the original recording so clearly on drugs it like the time signature makes no sense. It's very like. I guess like.

My mom didn't even know I went to the movies you know and I'm just kind of having this private moment with any hall and I ended up having a similar thing with all that jazz however the thing that I remember about all that jazz by this point in time I'm lying about my age and I'm working at the pussycat theater right.

"Serving that you were not happy. Stop now and guess what I. Yeah Yeah so the thing is like we talked it up and tried to make it for a long long time and then finally got got accepted at a small company called senatorial that kind of high end exploitation movies True Romance. Yeah sure mets Paul Hertzberg and Lisa Hansen. They ran the company and one of the things about them is they had for a while they. We're actually getting theatrical engagements. And they would do that through their company Semetel but the thing is they had an output deal with Columbia so they had prestigious video uh-huh releases. I think their biggest they had. They had some expectation he hits like you know nine seven six evil or something like that But I think they're they're they're their most. Prestigious movie was that bill will be relentless. We're Jed Nelson place a serial killer and so they got the film then they got then they got me started. They hired me to do a couple of rewrites on a couple of movies that they were doing to dialogue excited I was completely excited. And so they were going to do with Ballistic because I'd been I've been pointed bill direction from Scott Spiegel wrote wrote evil dead to a friend of mine and I sent him true romance and and had written reservoir dogs by that time. True Romance Ansah read natural born killers at the time so he read both of them and he thought well they can't be made. But this kick anomaly right but then he started like. Why can't you romance be made? Maybe I could make and so he was going to do it with Senator Al.. There was an interesting thing. Senatorial had a woman who ended up being a really really helpful to me. She was hired as the leader development at senator name was Cath Catlin. No good name and she used to be Tony Scott's assistant And she's their development person so she's the one that Kinda hired me for To do a dialogue Polish and another movie that they did and she kind of worked through me on that one and her big thing was bringing true romance to the company because she really really liked it. Well well she finds out that. I'm a huge Tony Scott Fan so she actually introduced me and and so Tony Kitchen brought around. It was on the set of less boy-scout so who's that kid you brought around. She goes oh he's a really young writer that I'm I'm I'm grooming him and she was grooming grooming. She totally was totally me to be professional. And she says young rider that he's really talented and I'm bringing them up through the ranks at senator. Al And he wrote a really terrific script. Okay well why don't you send me a couple of scripts. I wouldn't mind reading them now. Cool so she sent him true romance and reservoir dogs so he reads it and he goes. I WANNA do reservoir dogs. And she's like well that's when he will from self to do and and and I could could tempt him but I actually. It sounds like he's getting going. It sounds like it's actually happening and it was starting to actually be a real thing. It wasn't just a pipe dream and partly because I had actually sold Taroman so I was legit. I sold it to senator. That was a company people had heard up. Yeah it's a big deal. Yeah it was a big deal I it was actually a producer writer. But I'm on my way to being produced right. Yeah and that was all that was only need. As far as legitimacy was concerned the writer could could be a direct of course other it takes some guts and so she was so he goes okay. Well let's do the other one. Well how about the other one true romance. Well we have that. Well what what. Why don't we do it together right? I'll do it for you. And so the thing about it is so he wanted to do it and and so I wanted to and there was nothing excited me more than Tony Scott. That must have been like your greatest day. It was amazing. A whole lot of stuff had to be worked out. I mean like the less I think ended up getting paid like one hundred thousand dollars to not make the movie right away and then there was. All kind of senator wasn't involved with it anymore. I think they ended up selling the the rights to semi ideas company. And so but Tony ended up making the movie through Samuel Company and so he made the film and and it was a situation where it was like. You guys got the money to buy out by healthy small guys right. And so they didn't and they bought them out and they made the film and while they were doing that. Were you making reservoir dogs. So the thing is I had already made reservoir dogs by L. This time so it was like all that it took them the time. It took me to make reservoir dogs. How much time it took them to get disentangled from the whole Senator Bill Belichick thing but then to the outside world? It looked like you had like eight things at once exactly. No it was a combination of. It's like came the moment of quantum so I make sure I make reservoir dogs. That's my first thing and it was a big deal that the first thing that ever got produced was was directed by me. Yes because we're in it because I wasn't put into this. You know the saying of a writer trying to be. The director after arteries established himself as a writer. I didn't have to go through that. I was accepted as a director from the critics very first movie right very then in. I'm really short order. After reservoir dogs true romance goes into production and natural killers goes into production right efforts. I mean boom boom. So they're both going to be coming out before by next movie now. I'm writing my next movie. I'm writing pulp fiction now right and I've already written from dusk dawn so literally. It's going to have happened that it's reservoir. A reservoir dogs gets made romance gets made the natural born killers gets made. Then I make pulp fiction and then that from desktop don gets me so like everything I ever wrote is all all of a sudden produced and made in like a less than four year period. Well it was. It was amazing because you also changed changed everything else. Everything else got changed because of the things you wrote. Well the one of the things that was like but one of the things actually was like line of demarcation one thing that really boated bode well for me as far as like a establishing me especially by the time pulp fiction came out was reservoir. Dogs was enough of a smash as a first time film in the independent film. Saying to really be waiting for the you know the kids sophomore.

"Agree place. We make Los Angeles your place. Yes Los Angeles is your place Los Angeles. This is my place. Los Los Angeles is my place. I have to say this even though I'll cut it sometimes when I'm really bored I think about all the Times you and I were in the same place at the same time time but didn't know each other all the time we were at the Fox Venice at the same time under each other and also. Didn't you drop. I went to a bunch of movies at the at the lack La. Yeah Yeah Yeah I think you were there. I just feel like I must have seen across away and like so. We Have The Passion of Joan of ARC guess who else was at that screening Vigo Mortenson. Really Yeah Talk to him about this. I know exactly what you're talking about. I was there that night early. Dropped out they all day for like three days of movies at lack I literally like cut. School drew a Fox Fan. During that period of time you know stocks even exist anymore no newark still there. During that period of time it was like you know God they would have like to screening between between us being Ucla Theater Theater or the lack ma or something else. A lot of the being they would have had like two screenings of what's up doc a year but none of which would be at every single one of join us doing a an hour long. Qa that nobody recorded it was just their booze and back before the days when people like filmed everybody's bettys QNA with their cell phones. People says gnarly Shit. Yeah so getting back to polling cal for one minute was it. How did you feel after the conversation where you happy sad just sensitive? No it was released. We'll know it was really. It was really gratifying to talk to her and it was gratifying to hear how much a how much affection she had for me. It was actually really excited. She was actually sure what's not to like. Well she I think she did sort of look at me as Paul L.. Let filmmakers she looked at me as as a filmmaker took her to occur aesthetics who took her aesthetic. Seriously you know and And I think I think she thought I had a joined Aviv when it came to that was kind of upper. Rally up her her pulpy Junkyard Alley. Yeah the same. You had a lot of cross section of cross pollination obsession there was a lot of mutual obsession and but at the same time like I. I'm sure she wouldn't have known what to make of kill bill because I just like the. I don't think that would fired on any of her cylinder she. She would've loved kill bill to to she might. She would've loved kill. I mean she's got a heart but one of the things that was really nice at the very end end of the show and she saved it for the end one she gave me one. Pauline Kale quote. Oh yes okay. So she talked about Jackie Brown and she said one line about it that you can imagine like you can imagine that that was from the review. She constructed in her head that she never wrote and she goes okay. I mean the the scene of going through the airport in the opening credits are not only. Is that from the graduate. She's costume awesome designs so much out of Pedro motive. Our film their mothers will be quotes around the shots. So that was that was. That was a little Like trying to make the best pam grier opening sequences ever done. Because why. It's really wonderful opening sequence Gary and But then her final thing that she said just before she got off the phone was I just want you to know I really enjoy listening to you. Talk about blowout on talk shows. That's good I love that. I love that movie. I love that movie. That's an underrated movie. But you know what I I you you know what I didn't realize I you know and I can't imagine I would have been able to take advantage of it anyway but dreamed what about it. What I didn't realize was when I was really kind of obsessed by her in the eighties and I'm working at video? Archives was how easy would have been to get better. Yeah you know I didn't you know it's like I now. Every interview method critics sitting around giving interviews but like any of those critics from that time period. Whether it be owned or Stephanie Harak or any of them you know they all talk about being in their twenties and writing you know a couple of movie reviews and some Cockamamie think peace and sending it to Pauline Kale. Yeah and Paul schrader talks about it. and and Elvis talks about it she reeser Cockamamie things written at one thousand nine hundred twenty and twenty two and then calls them the jobs he gets them on the phone and give some tough love and okay now I want to do this. I don't WanNa see you and you can't spend you spend three weeks writing that fucking review who okay now. You need to write it in two days. Yeah you know a die and then like would bring them along and then when it came time she got jobs. Yeah she's people call. She got jobs obstr- album she had Paulette's everywhere. It's like. Okay Dallas Herald. There you go. You know your time's here. You GO A- and now I couldn't spell I couldn't tie you know and I was like so incredibly flaky. I'm sure I would have flunked every test. But she might just go. Get your asked the fucking Gary. You don't know how to spell you don't need to. You need to not type you can you you you can type better at the end of this week. You could tie better at the end of this week needed at the beginning of this week if you join a class tomorrow when he wait you don't have to type trust me with all she responded to is your passion and also he doesn't have to be able to sell incredibly articulate. The amazing thing about Pauline Kale is and I think it's part of why we I love her is it. Sounds like she's talking to your ear saving thing with you. It's like the minute you say something about blow out it's like you're it may be written down but it's like you're saying it into someone's ear but I think she would have had she would've had the zine quality out of the Fan Boy Zine qualley Ali which I'd want to hold onto a little bit but I wanna be more literary like her but I don't think I knew that at the time I was more Zini kind of I ended up doing that. You wouldn't have ended up making films. Well this is a better thing that I look. I know I agree. I mean even to the idea that it's like even when I think of being video archives all right if we had like I I thought a budget time about starting. Some sort of Zine never had the fault I never. I never loved the idea that much that I was going to push it all the way and make that my main the thing right it would have been okay now. This is the thing I'm doing. And you're all cooperating right and and I never cared enough about that to do that. However however in today's Day and age if it was if it was simple as starting a video archives facebook page and writing reviews? Who's about Shit I saw and that the it looked halfway decent? When you post that would have been a different story? Yeah all right if you know if if I had a scituate for forget about making a movie on an IPAD on but even the idea of I can imagine me and the guys. It'd be the archives totally starting a podcast right and that would have been the video archives. PODCAST and. I might not have made movies if I had had that much. wjr If I had had an outlet if I had that that much of a satisfying gas ultimately unsatisfying but in the short term in the here and the now quite satisfying and you have a huge following. I think I think I would've. Yeah I really think I I really think I would have. If I'd had a larger platform arm to get my my movie shit out there and you can still do it now. Yeah now but now's a now it would be a different story and I could definitely do it didn't i. But I like that road. Take no I do that. Rather than there would be no pulp fiction bad. I do think about that because I do think that it's like me making actually making movies and making the movies I that I could make that. I wanted to make them being able to accomplish that. Do that that's such a crazy dream that it would have been easy along the way if I had had anything. Good in comparison to let go with that because I had nothing but despair on this. I know this dream to the very end. Everything else was just so depressing by comparison that I had no choice but to live my dream was the only it was the only outlet I had but I actually do think that if if me and Roger Avery had started a podcast. We'd probably be doing the fucking podcast to this day. And we'd be on our buck and fortieth anniversary and our wise is would never listen to it. We'd be like the fucking mark and Brian Movie. Shit Sir thank God. That didn't happen. That's all I have to say.

"Thought about this and you bring up somebody that I thought would be interesting with you to talk about and I decided to choose Pauling Kale while excellent choice. Excellent choice if I was actually an interesting thing because I noticed when I do an interview you were something with a now. The younger critics aren't that young any more. Frankly to tell you the truth but what if somebody who's like ten years younger than me or something right and if I do interviews as with them all of a sudden they'll say something to me at some point in this hour an hour an hour and a half interview. Oh my God I just love how you quote palling Kale all the time. And it's only when they realize that I quote Pauline Kale all the time and it's even to the degree where it's like. I remember whenever I watched movies and I would see characters quote aristotle or quoted owed flamboyant or Camus or anybody. I don't believe that I never believe that people walked around with that stuff in their head I always thought it was a silly movie. Affectation book affectation people are constantly quoting Shakespeare. And saying it perfectly to the letter this phrase or the standard. I never never bought it but the reality is now the time. I'm in my fifties from reading Pauling Kale as much as I have that I can quote her like that things happen things come up and I think she thought she had will pop into my head and Alverson. I'm like spouting Confucius even if I don't even agree three with it or not. I have to get it out of my system. When do you remember the first time you read her? Well the first time I read her was after the first time I I I knew who she was because how I knew who she was was she would appear on the Tom. Tom Snyder show appear with Tom. Snyder on tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow. Yeah it was like around like seventy eight or so is the first time I think I saw her repairs and I had no idea who she is. I never read the New Yorker because of the New Yorker magazine was a boring to me when I saw the cup right. I knew of it but I never read it and you didn't have pictures of those dorky drawings signs forget about it and so I remember. I remember the first thing I ever heard her say was Tom Tom. Sawyer gives her a real big intro and everything and and the first question the kind of gets interface. Okay so now pauline. You said that Philip. Kaufman's remake of invasion of the body snatchers because the best film of Nineteen Seventy Eight. Now you don't really really believe that. Come on that's that's joke right. And then she says I'm responsible for.

"Really great and really thinking about her a lot lately What place in your life has had a huge impact South Africa just in general? I think South Africa has formed formed me the most as a human and I didn't really understand it until like my mid thirties late thirties. When you know he started therapy and I ended up talking way more about growing up in South Africa than I thought I would be talking about my boyfriend at the time or like my relationship with my mother? Yeah I just started noticing using that every session we would just talk about you know my childhood growing up and things that I think I never. I've never been able to articulate about how it affeldt growing up in that country and it's the dichotomy of you know being so great and also so dramatic. Did you grow up with apartheid. Being it was still in existence. Yeah wow so. That was something that changed dramatically when you went back yes so in ninety-one when I left that's when Mandela was released and then ninety four we had our first first free election but it was definitely. It was good for me I. I'm glad I ended up therapy. I think it helps me with the work. They're now it helps me stay connected because I feel like I am emotionally so connected so good way for me to balance my relationship ship with my country with the people that I feel so connected with to do a better job down there. How old were you when you left? I was sixteen. Oh my God and how. When did you first go back? Oh three months later going back. Yeah and when you left where you scared say sad nervous us. No I was excited. I mean I was given this great opportunity to travel for the first time. I mean I've never been on a plane before. Wow so that was like and I was asked asked to go and go to another country and that was I mean the excitement for that was yeah. There was no fear it was really just just. I was over the moon that I was given the opportunity to just go somewhere else and you went i Paris. No the I went to Morocco. Oh and then then after that I went to Italy where you modeling in Morocco. Yeah Wow yeah that must have been a bit of a culture shock after it was and I was doing a photo. Oh shoot one night and I was on a camel. The Sun was setting it. Was this beautiful setting and the photographer made this poor. Little Moroccan dude walked this camel in a circle and the camel just finally only said No. I'm done and it was getting dark and he started bucking and he hit his head back into my face. Oh my God and I. Yeah Yeah I dislocated my jaw on your first job job and I go to the hospital and they put it back and then the next morning I woke up a yawn and it went Out Again and then they put it back without any medication which was brutal and then years later I had to have surgery because it really kind of messed up my mouth. Oh my God I know. Some people think modeling so glamorous. It's so hard it's very hard so hard. There's a dangerous dangerous.

"To Q.. leear identify identify with that in terms of in terms of back. But you're still joe instill Joe Salchow. My shows your other other south. Yeah all right. So what is a thing that has had a huge made You know like something that in your life has had made an impression on you or a totemic thing that you keep with you or a lucky charm or a piece of art right that you saw that. Change the trajectory of your life a dance. You're always really good at talking about down's no I know and dance was huge for you. The fact that you're dancer I think has really affected so many things. Well yeah dances dances tap. ditsy get your it says it right. I know let's ask you. You had a crush on and movies and I love your answer. We remember your answer John Way Wage John Wayne because of how he walks. That's a dance response. Yeah I'm and the reason you love your again. Why because you put your head? You're yeah yeah I know I remember. That's because Edward was stylists fashion director. And he said something so and so great he putting the Sparkley little onesie young and I never 'cause I'm not us is zero and you know you never totally know a few feel comfortable enough you body but then a nice way attic. Oh the pictures I love I love. He just had this way. Yeah I would say Four me this is a combination and some not only pursued at this but this is the sort of the intersection I guess of of dancing and film singing in the rain. Stats this you remember how old you were when you thought young like six seven. I think it was the first time I ever wanted to re. We live inside of a movie. I think you don't forget that. I think I don't know a lot of cake to yes. Yes out of a Kagan agee hole and also loved gene. Kelly's face so much and everything about I wanted to be gene. Kelly kind of I mean yeah. I couldn't imagine anyone more handsome and more wonderful and I dance dance. He could sing and he was boyish without being a boy we pretty masculine is like a stair whether it's like kind of not sexual stare was I love and I love the I'm very I wish to rest by stare. t sort of staggering in dancer and the Howie shot those routines and what he did but let but I loved Lily and really I wanted to be Gene Kelly and that movie because it's about movies but but it's also dancing and singing and movies and and it's this relationship at the other Gene Kelly movie. Maybe I'm just saying the object of Gene Kelly who this was an American in Paris the whole room he has at the beginning. This sequence folds the Murphy bed and the toast and the whole thing that I continue to love love small spaces but gene Kelly as arturo really. I think was so choose from me. Combine to everything I was interested in. I think I assume everybody watches the movies and wants to live inside them. But I think if you feel that not as strongly as I did. Maybe that's when you WanNa work in them right you you WANNA find a way to get inside and of course the issue never really do but you you you know. You're it's as close as you can get the the singing in the rain. I think that's a wonderful thing to think that you're affecting people the way you were affected. I hope so. You are definitely the whole generation of people who WanNa be Francis Haw. Yeah it's I don't know if they want to be I I can't remember her name. What's her name mistress? America Brooke when Tracy rates about her. She calls her meadow. I just I don't know that everyone wants to do. But maybe maybe maybe on certain days not every day one thing exhausting exhausting to be broke every day. It's exhausting one thing. Definitely the with little women that we did as I remember saying to everyone that cinematography or and then Who Food Production Designer Jacqueline durant? Who did the costumes and the discussions with with the grip gaffer and everyone everyone I said I kept saying I want people to want to live inside of it and also eat it? That was a combination. And that's that's how I felt felt about those does gene Kelly's visible and so I think I was trying to tap into that thing and I don't think every movie I'll make we'll have ABC quality but I wanted this one to have it because I think it is for so many women that place you. It's discomfort the comfort of of the of these sisters and and I have had to re give it to them in a new package of day. They want to crawl back inside of it to that. I think there's something else you do. That's really brilliant. And all of your work. which is you talk about ambition in a very pure and interesting listing way and you talk about ambition for women in a way in little women? That's really interesting because it's not just about Joe. The movie in many way the subtext. So the movie for me and I said this to everyone I've spoken to is that it's a bad how a woman transcends circumstance in different ways whether it's through talent whether it's through beauty in the case of amy because even in the amy case I'm fascinated because I love the casting of Florence because in the past people like Elizabeth Taylor who are like a born beauty just sitting there doing nothing. Is Amy right so with Florence. WHO's very pretty but still still the idea is can beauty? Take me out of here. How how does beauty applied beauty become a ticket to another world world right and that is a fascinating thing in that character it becomes her arc in a way she smarter than she looks? But the smart isn't what gets her there right. I mean with all of the characters whether it's motherhood or whether it's obviously joe is about writing and being outspoken. Outspoken and talented and brilliant. And Beth is strange. I guess the thing is that I wanted to do is when she goes and sits in the Lawrence's just hasn't played. The P plays the piano that I wanted you to feel like a Koch. Of course she could have been someone. She's not marked for death. And and I want to every single girl to be essentially ambitious and crazy like what we would describe as like but even like all of them. It's true in little women of course but I think it's so fascinating how you amplify the subject matter because that's in the book but it's not in the book in this way. No Yeah I mean I think what I only really Joe. Well no his dad I would make the argument. It is definitely in the book with Amy. And that the biggest in the book as the biggest the amy and Laurie have in art studio or amy says I want to be great or nothing. That's from the book. She has an active discussion with about how she says. I you know I I. Don't I WANNA be a commonplace dubber and I don't intend to try anymore which I just thought. It was sort of staggering conversation. She has been she does very clearly. Say I'M GONNA marry for money and I don't see why should feel bad about that. But her giving up art is really interesting and I think I think what's neat about. It is that it's not. Actually schematic dematic with the two characters. which is well? I think you know amy kind of is like realize that she goes to Europe and in my this is sort my invention but like you know she. She spends time in Italy. which you'd see the old masters you on to Rome? You would have gone to Florence. Would've seen oh how great it was. And she's in Rome took all the vanity out of me right and you know because she would have been idolizing that kind of painting and then she goes to Paris and what I think is interesting in Paris. What's happening in Paris in eighteen? Sixty eight many is painting Cezanne Painting. They're starting to take apart the canvas and make paint. The subject of the painting is about to blow apart. And I in my imagining joining of who amy was stroke may May alcott. Whose artist sister is she got some Paris and she was like Oh shit and now they're already destroying the thing that I think they're they're they're making what I wanted to do? cubis the ready. It's coming anyway and I just that kind of analysis of you know Oh my God and what's interesting to me about Joe and amy and I've never really gotten into this because I think sometimes when you're speaking in shorter forms you don't WanNa get these things closely but was interesting to me is Joe. Joe Is also being told that she's a hack. She Writes Adventures underage student. Yeah and people don't like them she you know she's doing it for the money right. The difference between Joe Enemy may not be talent or anything it may just be. The Joe Never gives up and amy decides to cash in the chips. And that's what's interesting to me is like fascinating what what separated them as Josiah's kept going and she could make an argument. That's what separates effort NATO daily. I mean maybe you feel like life. What it is is who won't quit? I think a lot of. It's the outlast you outlined. Just keep working but I think you do. I was thinking of Louisa. And there's a there's a review in the Atlantic Henry James Panned her at at the end one of her books and that's she said I could be quoting all this wrong but I don't think I getting the outline of it right. But that's AH. That's where the thing that she said. I can't afford to starve on praise which I gave to search to say came from because Henry James is from this high flute and family he it has all this money he does. He does not need to write to save his family and Louisa needs to write to say per family. And that's the difference in any. She outsold old by Gino factor. One hundred I mean sheets she. She blew him out of the water. I Love Henry. James Henry James's ingenious. We don't worry about that but not unlike Joola we just kept going and I think I think that break between Joe and amy and I always saw amy and I love. Can you give me the line. And maybe it's in the book and I don't remember where she says something clever and Joe says you're so wise I mean I always was wise. You just never noticed. She doesn't the she doesn't say exactly that in the book which she says in. The book is I don't pretend to be wise but I am observant. And you're like Holy Shit. She sees how the entire tire game is rigged. And she's going to bet on this and what she bets on his. I'M NOT GONNA I'm not going to be painful for her to not be the best and Joe. It's just too painful to not do it right. And even if she is not the best and people always ask what would you do. If if you couldn't fail I think an interesting people always ask you that I will not lucky high school kids. What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail? They go after dreams but I also think interesting question is what would you do if you knew you would fail. Like what's worth it anyway right and I think Louisa Joe It's worth it anyway. They just kept going. But yeah. It's a amy. I wanted her to be something formidable against Joe but it didn't fantastic character. You made her a fantastic. And then I'll just do one more thing on it because it's interesting is like my analysis. I think I love your analysis for eighty the one one of the reasons. I made her CICCIO. Huge foil. Oil is is she. She is too in the in the book a she's she has shooting the same weight classes. Joe should just. She's boxing a different game and what I was interested in. I have forgotten how what scholar did this. There's all kinds of interesting gender stuff in it. You you know Lori is a is a boy with a girl named Josie girl with the boy's name all all of that kind of interesting childhood pre chant chantant pre gender roles stuff is gray but also you know. Joe Spends the whole book wishing she were a boy and almost performing performing masculinity right but amy is not feminine. So much as she's performing femininity ugly. Yes manx feminine. Yeah Amy's not. Yeah Amy's learned. That's what you're supposed to do that will get me out of here. Get me out of here so this sort of performance of gender under. Amy Doesn't need to do this particularly she doesn't because it's the most expedient way to get where she's going and I think that that's but that was a fascinating interpretation because yes I think that the classic thing to do is to just cast a straight up very pretty girl and Kala today. She's the pretty one end of story right and what you did was a billion times more interesting than Florence. So you cast Florence Darling. UH-HUH I love her too but that was what you did else might have cast. I Dunno whatever. Yeah well anyway. That's his name full digression. I could talk about little women forever..

"Be filled. Okay so now. We'll go to a place. Yes let place has had resonance for you. Well Big Sur. Really I thought we're GONNA say Sacramento. I know well of course of course but sir is a place to me is Brigadier June. Were when I was growing up we had family down in southern California down in San Diego and Riverside and so we drive down. We drive down mostly like highway five between between Sacramento and and all the way down that long stretch of done it Oh yeah Holliston. And the cows and the oil fields hot hot always. My grandfather was from Riverside and he dug in those fields. And he you know it. We're very we're California your family in the sense that all the reasons you've moved here for dust bowl reasons farming was better here. I it's like very like the way what I think that kind of history of California's which so new in some ways but I remember there was one trip and I don't remember how old I was when maybe five six that we for some reason we were driving down highway one and we stopped the pinch the firepit and I went to the way Fares Chapel which is a glass chapel and I like all not all all put a certain kind of little girls a lot of time planning my wedding and my mind and I was like in my mind for a very long time I would want to get married at the waverers chapel in big Sur with tap dudes in chorus of men in Tuxedos. I don't know what I was. That was so clear it'll be wonderful. Would be in this glass chapel. All these top DOC. Dancing men will come in. I don't know it was what I wanted anyway. and still I'm not just for me but but anyway so so I had this and I remember it being most beautiful place on earth and then it went back again then in my twenty s and I- car camped and I loved it and then I want back again like every time I've gone back significant and then the last time I went back was actually the right after all of the HOOPLA and the excitement and the Academy Awards I went to for Ladybird. The next day. I packed up the car with all my little women research and I went to a cabin in the woods in big Sur. And got real with myself about you. ooh What can I do this. I knew I was I I I had. I had a draft that I liked. I thought I could I. I could wrap my head around it but I felt like I. I always need to be alone when I when I imagine myself into movie making movies is so strange because you have to imagine you have to imagine and believe in a thing that doesn't exist yet and you have to know what it is and then you have to get everyone who you're working with to dream the same dream you are so that you're all in this. Imagine reality together. I think for me to do that. I need a lot of alone time because I need to. I need to know it and I particularly since it was an adaptation of something that meant so much to me. I felt like I had to the commune with Louisa and really get deep with the ghost of Louisa about what she wanted at sound. So Oh pretentious. But it's just how I need to do it so I had all her books and journals and they had all these. I had brought my content contemporaneous rainiest writers like you know trying to work my way through more. Thoreau and Emerson and then book she likes like George Eliot Middle Mar Middle. That'll march and also Daniel Dorando. Yeah and Milan that floss. Actually no one's well barely anyone in the movie at they've read When Joe is reading to bath on the beach she's reading from George Eliot the we could never loved the earth so well had we had no the child within it so beautiful and she loved George Eliot so it was sort of like what is she loved? What do we do you know? Why do how am I going to approach this? And and then I spent two weeks in big Sur with the trees in the end the ocean in a funny way it was. You know it's not I mean it's not conquered. It's the IT's west coast but I felt like it could kind of give me some connection and then I read somewhere where I Still WanNa do this. Monastery in big Sur and Pico. IRA does he does every year. And I I've always wanted to go there. But did he read. It's part of the mission. Yeah Yeah and he rented the when I was a child I built it out of sugar. Cube me too. I not that they built another San Juan Capistrano. That's a good one to build. Yeah sure keeps to I. You remember if it was out of sugar cubes but I do remember. It's had a long time. You probably did The better thing which is build it out of popsicle sticks. I was a little dumb about school projects because I was number two. TJ about them and my one of my neighbors who went to school with me. WHO's as a best friend of mine could? Different Noah Noah Shapiro Anyway. He I just remember. We'd do our homework together. I state reports. I picked main because I was interested in May because Maine was the first state in the Union to see the sun. Because it's the most easternmost in most state. That was the idea interesting but we had to draw a map of the state and no one knows. Like why didn't you pick a square one pit it Colorado and as you I. I'm drawing a coastline. But the right thing winging anyway I think there's a metaphor in there somewhere. So yes but so did it was probably out of interest and it took a lot longer but it anyway so big Sur and then recently I like I I'm I it's just a beautiful place and then I I don't know I be writing the script. I rewrote the whole script. There I took it apart and put back together there. So that's a say the name of your movie. Oh little women the little women I wrote. I had the whole draft but I yeah I took it apart. Put it back together because I can't. It's not yeah I don't make things that are modular so when I changed things I have to take the entire machine apart. It's not like I can move this over here. It all all kind of clicks in a way and it's very frustrating. I've noticed when the studio wants to give because they probably better because you think. Oh Oh can you just do this. And I'm like well no I can't because of this and they're like our guys here in my crazy labyrinth but Anyway so that. That was where I think the movie I you see now is that and I heard in my mind because I sir. She told me she wanted to play wage. Oh Very Joe Move I. I'll be playing Joe. Oh I got okay great. She says she knows But surfeit she's perfect perfect but I had heard in my mind to the speech. She gives about Women's that women they have minds as well. It's just hearts ambition and talent as well as just beauty and I'm sick of being told that love is all women's fit for but I'm so lonely I heard search say it in my mind and I started started crying alone in this cabinet in the woods and then when we were set she said it exactly the way I'd heard it in my head and it's one of those creepy things about making art especially making a communal art film. which is you know there's Louisa May alcott who wrote little women than there's me adapting it than there sir? Show who's playing Joe but also playing Louisa. And then we're all in some shared reality transcends transcends one hundred and fifty years and space and time I it's it's odd and anyway big Sur. I feel it gave me the magic. There is parlor other game which I always think is good but in your case it's so obvious about which one of little women are you but you're definitely joe so we don't even have to have that conversation do do I but I feel like I find myself in different parts of each of long. So you're not really. Wow Best. Weirdness yes yes I think people forget how weird this. She's also a one way you're like her because and so am I. She goes over to the house and plays the piano she does does. She shows the initiative to be. Everyone's afraid to go over there. She sedan she and not socially but she emotionally seduces the gentlemen of the House Yeah. He's everyone everyone in. The book is very scared of it in your movie leaves less terrifying terrifying. Yeah he's She's she's also. I love Punky we gave her. We gave her allies and always talks about her. Beth is being also genuinely peculiar which all comes from the book and it's always been satisfying. We we have her feeding her doll. which is really weird satisfied? The first time I watched it with an audience and and it got big laugh and I'm GonNa Z.. They see how strange shoot. Yeah because in the book which you know. There's so many wonderful incidents in the book and you don't have time I'm to do every single one of them although I would have loved to. But she has this sea power she. She accidentally kills her bird pip yes and then tries to revive him. uh-huh weird funeral. It's odd and it's but it's great. Yeah and I just I feel like the weirdness of Beth had never been totally explored. And that's why we give the line when may she's as Beth. What's your favorite color? Purple will but I just wanted her to say things like that. It didn't end up working in the kite but I also had a lies screamed uncontrollably. It was Laurie jumped out of the out of the Colas Rag and We had a few of the other things and Elisa was so good at tapping into the Strangeness Strangeness of Her and so so that part of it that kind of slightly in their own world to Q.. leear identify identify with that in terms of in terms of back. But you're still joe instill Joe Salchow..

"My children. I think the first time you give birth. I I was like Oh my gosh it changes you on a cell. You changed me on a cellular level because I was so oh I was old but I was. What what? They call a geriatric mother which is just a terrible term that they use that for. You're over thirty eight even but it's very depressing but but it was like. Oh the just that pushing out of a child eld into the world is is like unbelievable experience and so that was like and that changed me it was like a cataclysmic change that I was unexpected. In a way I was expecting to get the I thought I'd get postpartum depression. I so it. I'd have a really really long labor. I you know the pessimistic me but I was worried about all of those things and instead I I had like the easiest labor and had none of that and that's why I was like oh my gosh this is so unexpected. Isn't that weird. I don't know if I would expect it used to dance. You're in really good shape but it has nothing to do with it they said actually has to do with. How your Your mother Genetic no ways obviously some needed was your mother tall. She didn't yeah so everyone's tall but I was. I didn't know what to expect. So your your sister. She's six six. Yes Oh my word now and did they all go like my mom and my sister. They're going under the nose saying Bush till you're is power all that kind of pushing. Okay anyway this is graphic. Do you think is great for your podcast. This talk talk us. Do you think it changed your acting having children. I just think life has changed my acting this spin so many I've had such a a a roller coaster life and I've had things taken from me very quickly very suddenly which has changed my acting in a strange strange. Why because it's released me but it's given me this well of emotion so I've had things happen that have left me terrified raw? Aw totally wanting to just jump in and live life now in the moment and be as brave and bold and as grateful as I can be so a yes having children but also having such lost. It's like so so sudden and so a median. Traumatic has actually actually also changed. You know so. It's always contrast this too good and the bad we said life is the contrast without it. We don't know what we can't feel. Oh probably right so as much as you don't WanNa you're going to have to take the good with the bad but life is giving me now such i. My desire added just give artistically and give all as much as I can when.
