"Other person to you. Well you know. There's always the impostor syndrome but more it was like that there is this character madeline albright and then there's me you know who actually has had a fairly normal life as A mother and somebody who does the dishes occasionally Farm various things in and then. I'm a normal person. And i didn't get to be the madeleine albright. You know until in my late fifties. And then i stopped being that other madeline. Not you know. The character madeline albright. What was the gap between yourself in the character report. I'm not in larger than life and literally not anymore because i keep shrinking and there would be all kinds of things that happened for the madeleine albright character and then there was li. Did you like the madeleine albright character. Mostly gotta ask madam what. What was the part of the character that you didn't like. I guess maybe another way of asking. What i'm trying to ask is like. Did you feel like you could be yourself in that job. Well after a while. I thought i could. You know when i wasn't kind of tongue tied in terms of only following the talking points or thinking. Well that is not the way that we thought this discussion would go. So i have to go a different way and i know what i wanna do and say know but the truth is it goes back to what we were talking about before i love being secretary of state and i loved the idea that i was the first woman secretary of state and refugees so i loved that no matter what i will always be a footnote in american history. And i'm so proud to be an american. Not long ago i was at a and i was supposed to describe myself in six words. And i said worried optimists. Problem-solver grateful american. And they all go together. I love to about naturalization certificates at ceremonies. In the first time i did it was july fourth two thousand at monticello and i figured since i had thomas jefferson job. I could do it. So i'm gave this man his naturalization certificate a walks away and he says can you believe it. I'm a refugee. And i just got my naturalization certificate from the secretary of state and i went to find him and i said. Can you believe that a refugee is secretary state. And that is the kind of thing where i love the character and in some ways. It's not just a character but it's me. That's an incredible moment and i can imagine that that job is just like a stack of incredible moments after incredible moments. And i don't even meaning imposter syndrome way but having this feeling of like. I can't believe this is where i am. I can't believe this is what i get to do. And i wondered reading your memoir and thinking about talking you today. What the lake. Eleven year old girl who came from czechoslovakia and showed up at ellis island. What do you think that eleven year. Old girl with think of Eighty three year. Old madeleine brown. Think that eleven year old girl who had come in on the ss america past the statue of liberty would be thinking. She turned out pretty well. He made a difference and so. I hope that that's what she would think. And that the things that i like to do are the things that i need to do. And that the ones that i need to do. I like doing and so. I hope she'd be proud of. And what else can you ask. What really things you like to do the things you need to do. I think it works. You know and. I really do think the things i'm doing now are the best combination of using what i learned to keep going and doing different things to lake difference through connecting the dots. Connecting the dots. Do you ever think about slowing down. No retirement as far as i'm concerned as a four letter word. Absolutely not wait. What's the four letter. Just think about it. You'd have to blotted out. Do you still feel like you have a twin Sometimes yes in heathrow airport. I was picked on one time to be the person that they decided had to open every thing in the suitcase and on there on the floor taking everything out. And i never did this but i said excuse me. Do you know who i am and the guy said no but we can find a doctor who can help you figure it out. So i couldn't help but laugh but as secretary it didn't often say i was secretary of state you know and so sometimes it would have helped but sometimes it doesn't but i loved it you know and i do think if i'd had my druthers i would have happily stayed forever. This is a pretty meta question. But do you feel like you're Yourself right now in this conversation or you playing the character. Marin myself i am myself. This is what i'm like. You know talkative. I'm glad to hear it being in those rooms in realizing the people on the other side of the table or just people that like it's all more complicated and messier and more human than people who haven't been in. Those rooms might think did that. Help you feel optimistic about the world in about humanity or did it scare you for the most part. it did. Make me feel better about things that there was a way that people work their way through problems. I do think however there were some people that did scare me and give their backgrounds. That the chances of the making a decision that i thought was going in the right direction was not gonna happen so the question is how long were they gonna be around but on the whole i really do think that understanding that there were human beings on the other side made a big difference in terms of how they saw things and then the way that i heard some of them described banks. There's no way to describe to you how much time we spend a group of us during the whole war kossovo and i invented something really knew at that point which will make you laugh. The international telephone conference and so We were talking about what we should do. in kosovo. There was a question about whether there should be a bombing pause over Easter and there was somebody who felt that we should and then truly one of my best friends. Now is the former german for a minister joschka. Fischer he said. Why would we pause to honor one religion while we're killing people of another religion and that was such a deep feeling and then also when we were talking about some of the ethnic cleansing he said that's what the nazis did and there's nobody else who could really said that and so those were the kinds of things people you develop a sense of trust in friendship to understand how people can say things like that.

Is this other aspect of your job. As secretary of state that i wanted to ask you about the human side of it for you. Okay you were faced with some choices while in office that feel to me. Basically impossible where there were no good options. I mean i'm thinking about rwanda and kozovo. What was it like for you to be in a situation where you had so much power in control and yet didn't have the power control to solve problems. How do you engage in that kind of situation where there's no good options and rwanda's the best example. And i think what happened was when i got to be ambassador to the un. It was in ninety three and there already were issues that we were dealing with with the war in iraq than problems in bosnia. A number of issues in haiti a number of things that were going on and they were all hard. But i think the thing you need to remember is that even a secretary stating certainly as ambassador. You're not unchargeable decisions decisions. Come up through a system where the president has agreed on something and so there was a question about what we were gonna do about rwanda now the thing that i always say. Is that all the things that came out later. We're not necessarily things. We knew at the time but i do think that we knew that there was a limited amount that we could do given all the things that were happening around. I happen to have sought that we should have done more. But i was an instructed ambassador on things and i could see how people read at the. Un were reacting to the fact that we were prepared. We're not prepared to kind of have a larger mission there. How does that feel terrible. You do sometimes feels at while you have a lot of power. You can't make all the decisions on your own. I mean. I never one of the questions that always out there. Would you resign over. Something and I always think to myself 'cause you can only resign once so nothing ever happened. That i would have resigned over. But it does make you feel kinda deflated and then you have to try to explain why it happened. The way it did and that is hard. I had very serious arguments. For instance. With colin powell. Who was chairman of the joint chiefs. When i was arguing forgetting more troops to do something in bosnia and i did feel deflated here. I was a mere mortal female civilian arguing with the hero of the western world. Who had just won the gulf war. So you know kind of puts you in your place. I think the part that. I'm interested in his leg when you had that fight. You know somewhere in the west wing with colin powell and then went home that night and were brushing your teeth and looked in the mirror. Where were you at well. I felt that. I am somebody for better or worse. That goes over everything you know. Why did i say something. that way. would it have made a difference if i'd said something else and i don't know how useful that is. I mean you can overdo frankly especially on things that you can't undo but you don't miss your human part you know yeah. I was really hoping you'd say it's really good to always just pour over things. Well i can't help it. I do always for over things. But i i. I sometimes think that it may not help situation. When does it stop being the person. When is the thing that happened with me that most people were surprised about including my own family was that i actually have senator humor being able to deploy humor. Certain time is a very useful arm of some kind. I feel like they're not a lot of people who reach that level in politics who are willing to make fun of themselves. Well i do know how to make. Fun of my sniffles. You were saying that you gotta stay connected to the human part and i wanna ask you about that too because in your memoir you wrote about feeling like you had a twin that there was this other madeleine albright that the world knew that was getting invited to give speeches and sitting at the most important tables in the world and that madeleine felt like some.

Canada Has More New COVID-19 Cases per Capita Than US
"Cases of covert per capita than the United States. Of course, that country's population is only a fraction of ours. In fact, there are more people in California than in Canada. But it is really a dire situation for our neighbor to the North. Canada is one of the only countries in the world with significant outbreaks of three variants. At the same time, the UK, Brazilian and South African versions. The vaccine rollout just can't keep up. It's so bad that the CDC said earlier this month. Even fully vaccinated Americans should not travel to Canada. We're going to talk about all this now with Adam Miller. He's a senior health writer with the CBC and he's joining us from Toronto. Hi. Hi. Thanks for having me Well. It certainly is shocking to most of us to hear what's happening in your country. What is happening? What's driving this third wave? Yeah, that's a great question. Um You know, we've gotten off to a slow start with our vaccination roll out just because of the fact that candidate doesn't really have a domestic manufacturing capacity here. So all of our vaccines to date have come from other countries like India and the Europe and we're obviously gotten some AstraZeneca vaccines from the U. S is well recently, so We don't have that built in capacity to manufacture our own vaccines yet we're hoping to build that up now and in the coming years, But it's not something that we can really draw on right now. So we're really hoping that the U. S will. Open up. It's vaccine supply. But the priority, of course, is U. S citizens And we totally understand that. And I think the prime minister here understands that but hopefully down the road we get to a point where even you know some of the drug companies in the U. S. Will be able to give us more shipments because we're really at the kind of Whim of whatever they decide, because, like I said, we don't have any domestic manufacturing capacity is it that you don't have the capacity or they just made the decision not to

KCRW's Terry Glaser has more Weinstein serving a 23 year prison sentence after New York jury found him guilty of rape and sexual assault, and he's facing 11 more charges in Southern California. When it comes to the New York case, Weinsteins lawyers alleged the judge made several mistakes which led to an unfair trial. They say one of the jurors should have been dismissed because she was writing a novel about predatory older men that had similarities to the case. She was seated on the panel because the defense had run out of challenges to potential jurors. Weinsteins lawyers also claim the judge admitted evidence from three women about sexual violence that was not directly related to the case. And they say Weinstein was forced to give up his right to testify because the judge would have allowed prosecutors to question him about allegations beyond the specific charges

He's professor of public policy in sociology, East Riverside Welcome. Thanks for having me. Well, how would a vaccine passport work? Would it be like our regular passport for traveling? Well, very similar in the sense that I mean, we can. We can think about it as just a certified document testing to the fact that someone has completed their their necessary vaccinations, depending on the type of vaccine that they received. And that could be take on a digital were paper form in order to enable you know, she said, domestic or international travel or or or even domestic travel.

Twitter For List Building With Madalyn Sklar
"One of the things that i saw of is interesting about twitter is would you say it's the place where people really build a personal brand stronger than a business brand so like we are robin kennedy on there as opposed to anything else How does that work. Yeah you can definitely build a very large personal brand on twitter. So it's a level playing field so it allows you to be able to connect with people in in showcase yourself who you are what you do with everyone else on there. So everybody's kind of the same when they're starting at listen. We all started zero when we're on twitter and any other social networks so it's what you do from there to build up. That's really important. What i really love about twitter as well is. It's the fastest moving. Which means the deepest connections can be made fastest. Because it's a fast food. It's not like facebook. You put a thing up and then at some point in the next three weeks someone see your post and will get involved in the conversation. The comments onto an the reply reply reply reply. It's the closest thing to sms text messaging but with otherwise unreachable people which is really awesome so we get people on twitter. And that's lovely then. What we really want to do is move them from twitter to email platform. Because there's a place for being discovered and starring relationships like on onto it and then we want to move over to to all. We can do some deep nurturing nurturing so why some some of the strategies that we can be using an definitely want to know some of the mistakes that people make tried to shift people across as well but how do we even be game thinking about shifting people from twitter to our email list. Well greg question first and foremost you've got to get people to know like and trust you. Nobody's going to pay attention to you. Do anything that you say like. Hey come join my email is. Here's a lead magnet here something great. They're not gonna care if they don't get to know you firs- they like you they see you're likable and trust that you're not going to spam them right so you've got to work on relationship building. I and you know we all know the power of twitter chats as an amazing way to do that right just spinning some time connecting with people getting to know them and sharing your expertise and next thing you know. They're following you and they see hey. This person has a free pdf. I could sign up for and now you're getting them into your email. Listen starting that funnel. So it's really important to spend time nurturing community on twitter. You got you got. You can't just post you can't make it a one way street too. Many people too many brands too many of everyone is out there. Just me me me. Let me just post my stuff and not do anything else. You have to be on there and listen and jump into conversations and talk to people. It's incredibly important okay. Let's talk about jumping into conversations. The think will also go along the idea of and talk about twitter chats and that really means and how how we can take advantage of them later. But how do you like. Someone's having a conversation. You can see this a better crack going on between some people. How do you jump in now without being that so of dickhead. The party just like nobody likes just right then. Tell us what's going on. We don't want to be that drunken buffoon how do we. How do we not be that person yet. Still insert ourselves conversations. Well you can go in and ask a question just kind of slowly immerse yourself into it and not just like hey here i am coming out with me or add value to whatever. The conversation is if you go in and add value. That's really the best thing you can do. But before you do that. I do a quick audit of your twitter account. Make sure you're always good. Make sure you have a great photo a headshot something so that because what happens is once you start jumping in and doing this regularly. The first thing someone's going to do is go. Look at your profile. They're going to be who madeleine. Sklar what is she talking about. Why should i check her out. Why should i follow her. So you really need to have a great profile so it's really best to spin a little time on that. I just do a quick audit. Make sure everything looks good. Make sure you got your dot com if you gotta lead magnet get like a bit link and put that in your bio you know. Hey here's my my free whatever. Xyz and then the link. There's this misconception that you can't put multiple links in your twitter bio and you can you don't want to clutter it up with too many links but you definitely want here. Dot com in the space for the dot com but in your bio is a great strategy to put a small short-leg to yearly maintenance somewhere. If you you investigated using something linked tree or one of the of the plethora of programs for doing that or do you just like a couple of things that go directly to that results than you know really depends on what you're if you've got a lot of resources i think link tree is great for that and is definitely something that can be worth dealing I personally prefer doing billy link when i have some kind of special lead magnet and of even gone a step above that i have a custom. Bit link That you can do. Mine is since my last name is sklar is clearly so sklar dot l. y. And they can be slashed. Whatever i want to be which is super cool. I learned about it years ago. When jay baer was on my twitter smarter podcasts and he was talking about custom. Billy links which is something nobody talks about. Everybody knows about billy to get shorten links. Nobody talks about. Hey you can go. purchase You know something dot l. y. And and jay baer was like you should get your last name. You should be like scholarly. That would be so cool so i ended up doing it and it's been really unique so i use that quite a bit flip. Love licensed probably candidate think belong actually will url honest but we definitely. We've definitely thought about that. So i love that so so we can go in these conversations that we see happening. I suppose the first thing to do is we give some kind of volley that might be saying. Oh he not disagreeing with people and being offensive and stop but we want be in there going. I've done it this way. Add to the conversation. Don't take away from me really important. Just standard be nice stuff People check out your profile. Boston really great okay. A great way again people from a profile now that they're on your profile over lead magnet is bit links short links delete mandates great stuff. Now you mentioned this wonderful thing about until about a year and a half ago. I had never heard of a twitter chat or a tweet chat or a tweet. Our as many names for these things in case anybody's thinking what the hell are you talking about doing this. So of synopsis of what one of these things is absolutely so twitter. Chat is a great way twitter to bring like minded people together so for instance. I host the twitter smarter twitter so every thursday afternoon at one o'clock eastern whole bunch of us just converge on twitter for one hour it revolves around the hashtag. You just gotta make sure you pull up that hashtag and you'll see all the tweets around the hashtag and it just connects you really cool people in there so many twitter chats out there. There's so many different topics and interests so I have found it to be hands down the best way to connect with people on. Twitter is great for relationship building. I've met so many amazing people from this. I met you guys from there So yeah twitter chats is definitely the way to go. I recommend finding some that look interesting. Check them out and become a regular on some of these and try to commit a few hours each week. They're typically one hour away. Each week is typical twitter chat. Yeah most of all like a weekly event.

So if if somebody wants to participate in this one of these twitter hours or email in one of these twitter chats what's the best way they can leverage that to build their email list without being obnoxious person in the room saying hey buy from me. How can we participate in those things with and still be cool. Yes it'll be effective such a great question so back to your twitter profile. Be absolutely sure you've got some kind of lead magnet available. Make it really easy for people when they go to your profile to see it. Another strategy is to have a pen. Tweeden and penn tweets great feature on twitter. We can take any tweet. You have out there.

House passes immigration bills with path to citizenship for "Dreamers" and farmworkers
"Congress today just gave their stamp of approval to to immigration bills that could give a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. One was a bill for young dreamers and another for farm workers. The latter would create protections for roughly one million Add workers. Within California representative Doug Will. Mulpha was one of 30 Republicans to reach across the aisle to back the bill. Simply a way to get right with the law have a cap full of already in place AG workers with a legal status better for the worker of the farmer. In our system of idea who was in this country. Currently, Democratic Congress member Jim Costa from Fresno spoke on the Capitol floor farm workers. Some of the hardest working individuals you ever meet. I know because I've worked side by side for years. Growing up on my family's farm. It's simply wrong that they be subject to living and working under shadow of uncertainty and fear of being deported. The bill faces gloomy prospects in the evenly split. Senate Democrats will need at least 10 GOP supporters to break Republican

"And adding some other parts to it but like so many negotiations. The question is where do you begin. Who says what. When and there's been a recent report by the monitoring group at the un that the iranians have been really really engaging in terms of how to develop their nuclear capabilities with the kind of really expanding. What they're doing that they shouldn't have been doing. And there's also increasing concerns of expansion of terror groups like al qaeda and isis into a guy in particular in exceedingly vulnerable areas. Like this hell so. There's violence displacement of illegal activity also in the sub saharan region. We see china. Extensively reaching belt road initiatives and but the worldwide france seems to be the only country actually taking action. Is this a giant hot spot that could grow. I definitely think it can for a number of reasons. People say but they're fifty four different countries in africa and they have different backgrounds history. Ethnic composition various different problems with their neighbors and They are often not really part of the story enough. In terms of what is happening. They are victims of climate change in many ways whole areas having turned into desert which creates people that can't make a living and have contributed to the migration issues. They do have problems with covid. They are told to wash their hands when they don't even have enough water to drink. So the question is the distribution of the vaccine. Hauer they taking care of that and then also that they do have different trade ties. By the way i have said the chinese must be getting very fat because the belt keeps getting larger and larger and they are using their economic suasion to a really seduce a lot of countries in africa. Who van are saddled with what is known as the debt trap where all of a sudden they are more debtors to the chinese and being really recipients of aid and so it is a very difficult and complicated area that requires attention. There's no question by the. Us and the world for any number of reasons not for colonial purposes but for really working together to solve the kinds of various disputes. Some problems that they have another place where the chinese have opened the notch on their bell doesn't latin america which is in decline after decades of economic recovery and combating inequality but now there's no rampant corruption poor management that the co virus problematic leaders whether it's of course in venezuela but the also in countries like mexico and brazil does the us and europe have a leadership role to play in stabilising a region which is also fundamentally western region. Well i do think that we have to remember that. This is the western hemisphere. Our relationship american relationship with latin america is a very difficult. Frankly which is that. We are damned if you do damned if we don't if we don't pay attention to them. They're very angry for good reason and if we do they say we're interfering and this has been going on i think for quite a long time and by the way the most radical revolutionary thing..

"On Casey Madeleine brand. We have all seen the videos. Well, you gotta wear a mask, bro. Way. Don't we don't want any of this anymore. This is over. I can't do it. I'm a blond white women. Yep. Entitled people. They're usually white in a grocery store a target or Wal Mart, making a scene in some cases, throwing food on the floor or knocking over a display all because they were asked to wear a mask. These videos go viral. But why? Why do we find them so appealing and will publicly mask shaming people actually change anyone's mind. We're going to talk about this now with Alex Abad Santos. He wrote about this for box. Welcome. Thanks for having me. So that montage lot of have seen that masked freak outs. It's strangely satisfying, I guess for us to watch these videos because they've gone viral while everything so appealing. S O. I talked to a few experts who are at the genealogist, inhuman behavior specialists and human behavior at the genealogist to and what they said, is that these videos are kind of really satisfying to people who wear masks because They confirmed your worst believes about people who don't wear masks. So when you see people freak out, and you see people act irrationally when they're not wearing mass, it kind of confirms your bias that wow, these people are wrong and we're right then God were wearing masks. Well, Science does back up the mask wearing so Is there really a debate over whether or not it's proper to wear a mask? Yeah, There's no debate among how expert But what is it about the place of where this happens like often these things are happening in Like a trader Joe's or a target like retail outlets. Why are these freak outs happening in those places? I think there's a lot of things happening. One of them is the reopening and what's happening in certain states and where you're seeing he's Corona virus cases shoot up and, AH, When you go into a public place, it becomes easier to lash out at things. And when you have like a person lashing out like an employee or people lashing out of someone not wearing a mask, it becomes easier for us. Is humans to lash out at something as a person versus being like Something a little less tangible, which is the invisible virus. Also, it seems like it's easier to take your anger out on some poor retail person than on someone who has actual power. All right. If you're completely fresh, it becomes much easier to lash out at the person getting paid, possibly minimum wage to deal with you than to go toe like a governor who probably won't be answering your calls any time soon. And is it the case that people who aren't wearing masks and get angry when being asked to put one on is it the case that they are mainly supporters of President Trump, who has Refused to wear a mask. I think he's only warn it 11 once publicly when he was at Walter Reed. So is that the case that this is definitely Trump's supporters refusing to wear masks and then having these public freak outs that we're capturing on video. Yeah, So the experts I spoke to were quick to say like, Well, maybe it's not everyone, but I think what you can say is that there's been a lot of visual public signaling in that people aren't like mass. And what what happens that whoever you look to his leaders tend to intend to copy their behavior. So when President Trump doesn't wear a mask that the signal to his followers that they don't have to wear one either, and we tend to do a copycat behavior. Are we, the only country that has politicized mask wearing? I mean, it's A little terrifying that this is what's happening, and it's making. AH epidemiologists and health experts and public health officials jobs much harder when A master's politicized Yeah, and it's it's hard to walk that back. So how are you supposed to confront someone who's not wearing a mask in a way that Won't AMP up the situation and in a way that will Get them to listen. Unfortunately, I'm a petty person, and I am very of the mind that like oh, like, Let's just public shame. It works right, But it actually doesn't work health officials that I supposed, He said that You can look at like HIV other like STD passing and a lot of different the way we think about disease and publish aiming doesn't work. What work was actually having some kind of encouraging behavior. It's kind of like the way we teach kids now are the kind of way that we think about like how we teach Children is all positive reinforcement. And so I think. Instead of lashing out what health experts say is like, have a conversation. Try to be a bigger, more understanding person and trying it. That's the way to convince the one I think the problem is that if you're a mask where I probably friends with people who all wear masks because you kind of gravitated towards people You have the same lights interest this interest in same kind of political affiliation, Museo and so maybe those opportunities to be a bigger person and have an honest conversation about why this is so important without it being combative and trying to do a lot of positive reinforcement. Might not be a reality for a lot of us who are kind of more own bubbles, and especially with like social distancing. I'm not. I don't think I'm in any rush to go to like my local target and trying open conversations with people not wearing ass would like to just be staying at home..

"This is why I'm Madeleine brand he salty sweet and oaky nineteen fifteen minutes of queen and then we add the whiskey lanes actually a you know by now that means it's time for our weekly cooking with Evan food segment this summer with hotter temperatures you might want to avoid the event and have a salad for dinner Evan Kleiman has a few tips on where to get good to go salads and she's going to give you a dressing recipe of her own hi Evan hello Madeline well you asked listeners about their favorite salads in Los Angeles and so what are they telling you where is the best takeout well first of all we have to identify what kind of salad so I asked about big salads it's a big salad like a meal well it's not a side salad your jury pool not not a composed salad a lot of modern salads in in restaurants that we know and love or composed everything lying flat on a plate and you kind of a little bit of this and that now I'm looking for a large quantity in a bowl that's crunchy and tons of texture good dressings yes you have me I like that okay and did you get a lot of response a lot of responses and of course they fall into various categories so there's the chop salad which everybody loves that usually consists of some kind of lettuce material I'm usually some garbanzo beans and then it's kind of like a hero the insides of the hero sandwich chopped up and mixed with lettuce so the originator of the salad is La Scala and there is still great but in a limitless Scala Emilio opened a place in Encino called finally enough Emelia and some people say his is even better but then there's also Nancy's chopped salad at pizzeria motes which is famous and the one that because of wanna that one is delicious I've had that one what makes a good chop salad a good solid is having respect for the kind of greens I mean a lot of times greens can be an after thought because you know what you're interested is in all the different Salamis and cheeses olives pickled onions may be nice crisp raw onions but I think it's also important to pay attention to the quality of greens and then of course you want a nice punchy vinaigrette yes definitely a punchy vinaigrette so what about some of the other categories one of my favorite is the cob and with a cousin to the chop it's a cousin to the chop it it is not Italian focused so the card is much more protein intensive you have the Aggie usually have Turkey or chicken some bacon maybe some blue cheese none of this sounds locale to say oh no no we're not talking about salad as penitents we're talking about a big salad okay big solid big calories go for it so my favorite Cobb salad actually is at the grill on the alley the original grill in Beverly hills I just think that it's beautifully put together and so delicious there's also a humongous one that I haven't actually tasted but listeners pointed out to me I'm out for Roma in studio city avocado is heavily represented in that one so how could it be bad mmhm then the next category is the Chinese chicken salad yum yeah I love them too so a lot of folks love feast from the east and west where that was my mother's favorite place but Joan's on third also has a huge following yeah I've had that one that one's good too do you like the wontons or not the fried wontons and it if if there's no fried wontons were you even doing eating that salad just have just have insurance and have it be over sesame vinaigrette is really good I like that too no no yeah but I mean it's all about those one time yeah that's true again not a locale mail but that's okay okay so the mid eastern version of these big salads would be perfect to use which is the solid that is greens often arugula tomato cucumber sometimes still and pita chips with a good dressing there's a great when it carousel and then we go into the papaya salad world which is a different world wow it's endless so it is different though because it has that whole thing of being tart just a tiny hint of sweetness if it's that northern eastern style there's a great deal of funk from either Brian just crabs or maybe at this chunky funky condiment made from fermented river fish and it's interesting when you do shots like this there is definitely consensus so the two places people loved that version is from long kind nod in receita and song from Kong in north Hollywood all right so what if you wanna make your salad at home so I grew up with a mother who did not believe that you would actually eaten dinner if you didn't have a big salad and big solid man at least two kinds of greens cucumber carrot and then some a wild card who knows what bean sprouts whatever something else crunchy and the dressing was always the same and as the dressing that I ended up serving at my restaurant for years that I renamed the forte dressing meaning strong mmhm and it's a garlicky parmesan dressing and I'm sharing the recipe with everybody it's a huge amount of garlic that you put through a garlic press which makes the garlic super spicy very peppery and then a nice hit have a good red wine vinegar good old oil and a handful of parmesan cheese no I should say growing up my mother of course of course salt and I love it with pepper too growing up my mother made distressing with Wesson oil craft shake cheese that's popular in the background there I think he's snorting his approval he looks at dressing actually more students all right we're gonna have that recipe for your dressing as well as the list of where to get all the salads up at KCRW dot com Evan thank you thank you so much I'm

collective bargaining agreement the union agreement both of those things would be an antitrust violation if it weren't for the fact that there is a specific exemption actually two exceptions in anti trust law for the benefit of unions what the agencies are saying is that in moving to a group of boycott as they put it of the agencies telling all the writers to fire their agents that the writers

apologies it's very in the weeks it comes down to whether regulating packaging fees the way that agents get paid by employers by the studios that whether that kind of regulation is a legitimate union goal or not so what the agencies are saying here is that the union is really going to far in trying to regulate a business practice between the agencies in the studios as opposed to you as opposed to regulating wages which of course is what our union does when they negotiate with management so basically the agencies are saying union you're poking your nose into something that's not a fair fair it's not really your business this is our business with studios you just concentrate on what you're supposed to be doing which is setting the price for for writers that's right now I think the writers

"You. Such she'll know. Madeleine sat down with director Terry Gilliam yesterday with just one important question. Are you the man really who killed on Quixote finally? I'm trying to be more mysterious about who do the deed. No. I mean, many people try to long the way many producers who thought they were the only one that could ever make the impossible film reality and so many of them failed, but they didn't fail quietly. They did their best to destroy the work that those who succeeded had done. Well, so you have tried for many decades to make this movie, and you famously do I say famously or infamously like infamous, okay, get say there was the infamous attempt that was immortalized in the documentary lost in LA Mancha where you had Johnny Depp in the lead. And then there were all sorts of problems. There was a flood and the French actor who was playing Quixote he was very ill and had to drop out and the whole thing fell apart. So after that, though, you kept going why I don't know really is more. Like, why not once you start something or other nice thing to finish it? I mean, it's no good to Everest. Take a couple steps. Freighted? I give up. That's what it felt like it took ages to get it away from the French insurance company that had to call up quite a bit of money when the first attempt failed, and then we had to keep finding. Bankable actors would joy up and then once we had bankable actors we defined the Bank and these combinations required. You know years, and I kept failing for different reasons, we always got close to the number that we needed to make the film, but never got it. And sometimes you got a few interesting actors tied in they get tired of waiting off and get a proper job. Right. So died up for example. He said, I'm tired of this. No, he actually just grew older apart in waited. Well, there is a character in the movie now the current movie who looks awful lot like Jack Sparrow is that I'm talking about a Russian oligarch. Now, I wasn't. I was talking about the guy the beginning who who gives Toby his student film. He's got to watch the film. This is when other people watch it, they say bits that. I can't even remember or maybe even didn't put in there or just failed to cut out should've. Well, you mentioned the Russian oligarch. Did you put that in to reference modern politics because you do have Trump reference in they're trying to conceal they on my back complete games. Disney nightmare drag.

"I'm Madeleine brand President Trump's pick to head. The Justice department is expected to be an hearings with the Senate beginning tomorrow, we embar has already been attorney general during the George H W Bush administration and before being nominated by Trump bar had been critical of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling today, though, he promised to let Muller finish his investigation. The move is seen as a way to placate Democrats. Who say they're worried about bars earlier comments, it's Monday, which means Jessica Levinson is here to give a preview of the bar hearings. She's a professor at Loyola Law School and our regular legal legal. Welcome your chief placate or be here. Thank you for placating. Well, what do we expect tomorrow? We expect more of the same of him saying, oh, yes. I would definitely protect the investigation, blah, blah, blah. Yes. I think that for people who are unfamiliar with watching confirmation hearings for the attorney general think about confirmation. In hearings for a supreme court Justice. So they are the most neutral even-handed person in the world, and the person will say, you know, I'm gonna take every case is comes. And in this case, really, there's an enormous amount. Ask the future attorney general about but everybody's gonna focus on us the Muller investigation. So everybody will focus on Lookie wrote op EDS, you said things in public where you criticize them all our investigation, and what people are going to zero in on is really two different criticisms, the I will be that these obstruction case really had holds no water. The obstruction being the firing of James Comey being asking James Comey to go easy on Michael Flynn, and then firing James Comey and then separately he's had a very broad view of executive power. And he said, for instance, that President Trump should not submit to interrogation by Robert Mueller. And this is very consistent with his view over decades. Of some would call it. Critics would call it an imperial presidency. Others would say just exerting your role as chief executive breath think the questions will focus on those two criticisms we'll talk a little bit about his past. Because when he was working for George H W Bush, he urged a pardon of figures involved in the Iran contra affair, he urged pardons for a number of people cap Weinberger who is Defense Secretary exactly who for a number of officials who work use of lying to congress during the Iran contra scandal, and essentially said, yes, that's within the presidential thority and its proper. He also said publicly thought that President Trump was correct in firing. Sally gates, who was the former acting attorney general who said, I will not defend the travel ban and then outside of this. I know everybody, of course, is focused on the investigation. People need to ask him about his thoughts on zero tolerance immigration policies. People need to ask him about transgender people. Serving in the military people need to ask him about the idea that there is fraudulent voting and or voter suppression. So there's enormous amount. We really want to hear from the man who my expectation is absolutely will be the next attorney general if he does say in these confirmation hearings that he will protect the Muller investigation is he then bound to do that or could he just change his mind? Well, I mean, he has said something under oath, but something like protect is. I mean, it's a lawyer's favorite word. It's like I will act reasonably I will protect them all investigation. So what exactly does that mean by all reports rod Rosenstein has been very protective of the mall investigation. He's of course, the acting attorney general in charge of overseeing who's going to step down when when and if William bars confirmed so what he's basically said is I pledged to let Robert Mueller do his job. But they're still. Still wiggle room in there, for instance, for him to say this is going to far field or I will not release his final report exactly he has pledged in of people are focusing on this transparency he said the public in congress have a right to know what's going on in this investigation, which is an important signal to Democrats and to some Republicans that no I will not keep this confidential. But there's still a lot of wiggle room. In terms of reductions in terms of how much you release who you release it to. So these are broad statements that are meant to make us feel more comfortable, but he leaves himself plenty of room on the future. And again, he'll be confirmed. Do you think because the Senate is Republican? I think he'll be confirmed because the senate's Republican also because this is a Smart Choice for President Trump. He's picking someone who already had the role who was picked by another president who has confirmed by a different Senate, and that makes him look a lot more conventional comfortable. Unlike some, for instance, of the judicial picks who have never. Served as judges. This looks like somebody we should all feel at ease with except for his open criticism of the mall investigation. That's why that'll be the focus on Tuesday and Wednesday. All right. Let's look at another story. This is a federal judge has blocked new Trump administration rules that would allow more businesses not just religious organizations, but mainly any business to opt out of the provisions in the Affordable Care Act that provides that mandates that they offer birth control coverage to women. So this judge said, no we're going to issue an injunction. It's just a preliminary injunction. So there were thirteen states and the district of Columbia, and they said the Trump administration by administrative rulemaking is essentially trying to eviscerate this part of the Affordable Care Act, which is a federal statute in. They're trying to blow hole in what was a small exception for certain nonprofits and religious institutions, and what they're trying to say is if your corporation or your employer, and you have a real religious or moral objection to providing your employees. With free contraception then you can opt out. And so the argument was basically one that goes against the statute to states have said that will be a huge economic burden on us. Because then either the states will have to provide the Carter -ception or the states will provide for medical services for women who have unwanted pregnancy. And to this is really discrimination. And so what the judge said is just were going to say that rule doesn't go into effect today. The rule was set to go into effect today in the judge says we're going to have a whole trial on this. It's not going to go into effect while we have to try, and that's his trial again, thirteen states. Plus the district of Columbia going to trial against the Trump administration for trying to impose this rule. Right. And actually, this is the second time that these states have sued because the Trump administration tried a first rule with language that was a bit broader just a few months ago. And then the Trump administration lost appealed to the ninth, sir. Circuit who enlarge part upheld that district court ruling. So this is actually the second round of rules. And what the court said is, you know, this looks just like the first round of rules, which may sound kind of reminiscent to the travel ban to some listeners. So this is something that William bar presumably would get involved in. He absolutely could get involved as the as the attorney general. This is something that's important to the department of Justice, and there will probably be similar suits throughout the nation. And I think this question of and religious objectors, and then the rights have kind of fill in the blank here. It's versus the rights of women to obtain contraception free of cost. This is going to be a question that the attorney general absolutely faced with Jessica Levinson. It's always great to talk with you. Thank you. Thanks for coming in law. Professor at Loyola Law School and our regular Monday legal legal. Well, after that segment taped judge until Adelphia also ordered Trump administration's new contraception rules speaker on. Extended that order to the entire nation. That means the birth control mandate remains in effect. Coming up United States immigration law allows child brides to be brought into this country.
