"We are lectured all the time about domestic, violent, extremism, as if the right has lots of domestic violent extremists, except that's just not true. The left is full of people that are willing to use force to intimidate and harm conservatives. It's happening with turning point USA chapters all across the country. It's now happened twice the university of New Mexico, university of Iowa, and yes, now at University of California Davis, our turning point USA chapter was trying to host a speaker Stephen Davis, a great man. It was met with antifa and the young lady who runs the turning point USA chapter Madeline low University of California Davis chapter leader was mace three times by domestic, violent, extremist leaders, domestic, violent, extremist, leftists. Joining us now is Madeline love Madeline welcome to the program. Hi, thank you for having me. First of all, are you doing okay? I am. I am. Thank you very much. I've recovered, yeah. Well, walk us through what happened last evening. So I was arriving to the event at 6 40. I was 20 minutes early. And when I arrived, I saw about a hundred, maybe 75 to a hundred protesters in front, and they were banging on the Windows yelling things at the UC Davis conference center. And so I walked through the crowd trying to fit in and I go up to the security guards asking them if I was able to get into the event. And when I found out I couldn't, I was started taking videos of everything that was happening around me. And at that point, people were starting to grab me and say, why are you talking to these people? You need to come back here with us, and I was asking them politely. Please do not touch me. And then once I walked out back to the crowd, I saw protesters protesting the protesters. And at this point, I went over to them and said, hi guys, what's going on here? And I was videoing this whole situation. As I start to walk back into the protesters crowd, man asked me to identify myself. And I just keep walking past him. That's when he proceeded to mace me. And then I turned around and then another person maced me and then the same guy that did the first time makes me again. After that guy from my left to grab my phone, ripped it out of my hand and then took it from me and threw it on the ground and smashed it. At that point, my hand was hurting a lot because he had ripped it out of my hand and I was trying to hold on to it. And then he called the police and the police would not come until the protest was broken up. And so that was the end of that. Was anybody arrested for using mace against you three times? No one was arrested because the police department would not respond to the call unless the protest was broken up. I'm pretty sure it was due to an incident ten years ago at UC Davis. And so I had to wait around for the police department to come take my statement in which if they find the people who did mace me, they would rest them and press charges. Yeah, well, something tells me that they're not, they're not going to take this very seriously, right? And probably one. And so here, basically, you're trying to host a peaceful event with turning point USA, trying to have Steven Davis on campus and walk our audience through this a hundred masked antifa people show up on campus because you're going to have an event with a couple dozen people, maybe 50, maybe a hundred people. What's going on here? So this is exactly what happened and so the vice president Luke Schultz is the person who invited me to this event. I was really just a member going. And I'm trying to get more active in the club. And at this point, I was taking videos to have this be promoted. And when I showed up, I was not expecting a hundred protesters. It was extremely not fair to any side. And I think it's really showing what how much freedom of speech we have on campuses and universities are on school. And I'm a first year. And I thought that it would be a lot more accessible to just have the right to speech and understand and go to club meetings. And now it's really being a threat. It's politics on campus is being a threat to everyone. So you're here and you want to join a turning point club meeting. Again, this wasn't a very big event by turning. It wasn't standards. Is that fair to say, right? Yeah, yeah. We actually didn't believe. We only had 200 people that RSVPed, but we didn't expect a lot of people to show up, especially not protesters. Yeah, and so then you try to this is a club meeting, right? And so you try to show up and a hundred leftists that some of whom are armed with batons and mace antifa domestic violent extremists try to then intimidate and then they go after you and mace you, which is against the law that is domestic violent extremism and one of our audience members says do these kids ever go to class. I bet a lot of these were non students though. Weren't they? They sound like they unity members. Yeah. I saw a lot of older gentlemen. I felt as though they weren't undergraduates. They might have been recently graduated or community members. Yeah, I mean, that's been our experience. And I mean, they have these trained antifa pamphlets. I want to read it for our audience here, which is don't talk to cops. Don't photograph or film the protest, protect each other, stick together, watch what you say, leave your phone in case of arrest. All this different stuff. And they have the Sacramento NLG hotline..

"Can't be that hard, but you know? Did you start see if it became a playwright after me, even though she was already a writer? And so this is really exciting because we're doing it a long work in New Haven this week and it's so rare that a major Connecticut I don't think it's ever happened that a major Connecticut theatrical institution support Connecticut indigenous stories, right? Like it's so rare that these major institutions support native work. So it's really exciting. To be telling this story that we care about our ancestors with an all native cast of ten incredible actors. Coming together is how that story and they'll be workshop performances of it. Saturday and Sunday, the 22nd and the 23rd. And yeah, I'm super, super excited about that. And then I go right from that to doing where we belong at the public theater in New York. But really, really powerful story, really important ancestors to be able to honor in this way, telling this story, and for dealing with fielding flying bird, who the story is about just recently her journals her journals in which she wrote the muji language where patriot Cornell University just recently gave them back to us. So it's a really powerful moment for that story as well. Well, it sounds really, really interesting, like a really exciting performance, a play. And Madeline tell us more, you're a teacher, you're a professor there at ASU, you work in native theater, tell us a little bit more about how you teach these topics to your students. Yeah, so I'm super excited in the swing. I guess each contemporary native drama because that I feel like is just going to be such a fun class to teach, because I get to think about instead of some literary courses, like how do we synthesize this down to one thing instead I get to think about how do I make sure they understand that there's such a broad spectrum to this work. So how do I get to not only introduce them to native writers for many different nations, but also many different genres that even flying birds diary is so different from so many other things because it's a Victorian native play. Like when non natives think about the Victorian era. You know, they never think about native people. And so it's just interesting, right? Like what are the things that are unexpected? So yeah, I'm really excited to be engaging with students about not only the incredible breadth of work that already exists, but then for native students, okay, what are you going to contribute to this? Like, what are you going to write? What kind of stories do you want to tell? Because ultimately, that's really what I'm always thinking about is what are we building for the next generation to keep building forward from? Because the next generation of neighbor native playwrights who have already been introduced to are just so incredible and just keep building building building leaps and bounds beyond what we've already set up for them. I really imagining us into the future. Not just indigenous futurisms or things that are literally imagining us in the future, but just the way they tell stories really breaks down a lot of the things that we can't see beyond I think in our current consciousness. Madeline, you have such a profound perspective on the theater and how native people are served by the theater and what we as need if native people can do to make the theater more aligned with who we are as people, both historically and culturally. And you know, there's so much emphasis on Native American art school here in New Mexico and Santa Fe, we have IIA and there are other really strong art programs. And I'm curious, I don't hear a lot, I don't hear as much about performing art schools focus specifically for native people. And it sounds like a lot of what your vision is and a lot of your efforts would be really suitable to a specific Native American performing arts school. Is there something like that already in works, maybe I'm just misinformed or is there momentum or is that on anybody's radar in the future? It's the dream. We talk about it a lot. There's a lot of other needle scooter artists when we talk about that a lot. You know, someone ends up a program and it's like, oh, all the difficulties they're confronting would be solved if that had only been a native center theater program. I think there might be there might be something that works out of know about. I do also serve as there's a mini program at Yale called the Yale indigenous performing arts program. That does offer many programming for native students at Yale around that, but it's not actually like a full fledged trading program in any way, shape or form. And I really, I really do feel like you're describing is really, if I could have any job, you know, it'd be like director of the indigenous perform like that would be it because so much of what I think about is is the power of story medicine is understanding that we always understood as native people the power of storytelling and what it was for. And actually a big part of the harm of why we haven't been in these major theater spaces is one because they've been keeping us out but also because they were so active to hurt us. There were these periods of history in which red face on Broadway was in alignment with the Indian removal. And they were doing these things intentionally to say no, native people aren't human. Let's show you they're not human in the spaces. So it wasn't accidental that we weren't in those spaces. It was like, no, they were using those spaces to harm us. And so the steps of reclaiming those spaces and then bringing our ways of telling stories into those spaces, there's a reason it's taken generations of generations and generations of work. And now I feel like it's really about how do we not accidentally assimilate into those spaces, but how do we make sure when we show up in those spaces, we can show up in our way and do things in a good way that is meaningful to us because they're going to learn more from that, then they probably have to teach us because they don't even realize how toxic the history of those spaces are that they're operating in. So yeah, so I feel like the dream really is that. How could we actually have a center, well, also, so one, there's two things that are the dream. The thing one is, yeah, like a training program that is just indigenous performance, just native artists. And then also how come we don't have an indigenous performing arts center anywhere on this continent that I know of, I hope it exists that I don't know of it and then someone's going to tell me about it. But I keep waiting for that also, that like every other place you go, there would be some art center dedicated to the indigenous performance of that place and then here on this continent we don't have that. So those are the two things that I really think could be really transformational for how we move forward and even bigger way. I've always thought a possible venue for something like that could be at Haskell and Lawrence Kansas because they have that historic theater there on campus and a long legacy of performance arts and plays and things like that. Just saying there, just saying. Well, Madeline, unfortunately, we are running down on the hour here, but where can our listeners go to learn more about where we belong, flying birds diary and just you and your career? Yeah, so real quick. Haskell actually was one of the foundational organizations when it came to indigenizing Shakespeare, both as a school and in the arts, if anyone ever wants to look into that. But also, yeah, for me, and for my career, you can always just go to my website, which is just WWW dot Madeline, say a dot com is probably easiest. I try and keep it pretty up to date. With what's going with what's going on in my life and my career. Otherwise

"You do. Okay. I do have a standby. Yeah, and actually it was really scary for a while because the way they had structured it was they gave her like one rehearsal in April. And then they didn't give her another rehearsal for another 6 months. And it's a 90 minute show, so I thought, oh my goodness. That's really hard when she has to go on. But there were a couple days I was sick. And Emily price, she's osage. And she went on for a couple of performances in Seattle and did fantastic. And so that was actually a real relief for me because prior to that, I thought, oh no, you're sick the world's gonna end. You know, or if I get injured, everything's gonna, but it was really great because then instead, you know, just another performer got to tell the story and she did a great job. So that brought me a lot of comfort knowing that it didn't actually really all rely on me the way that I thought it did. Well, how did you choose your director? Because you had to bring somebody in to direct your vision. Yeah, it was so early on. I didn't realize that it would become this big of a thing, you know? So it was at a point where as a director, I know a lot of other directors. And at that point, when that director came on, we didn't know what was going to be a tour or it was really for the production of Shakespeare's globe. And I had brought on the director manteo for two reasons specifically. It was one. I knew she had done a lot of work internationally, and I knew it was going to an international audience, and so I wanted to think about what that would mean. And also because I needed to pick a director who wouldn't make me cry at the time. Someone who was available because it also wouldn't be sensitive and not try and colonize the story, was really important to me. You know, who would she like, okay, this is your story. You know, you need to be a part of every conversation instead of somebody who's like, oh, I have directing, so it's my story, you know? And so that relationship was really important, even though it was a non native director that they were able to adjust in that way, because normally working on native projects, they advocate for their being a native director on the project, but that's just doesn't what happened at that time. And so then the respect that there was the responsibility that that director then has to learn how to work in a native theater setting is very different because I actually didn't realize until that moment that I'm used to a specific set of protocols because I work predominantly in native theater compared to compared to a lot of other folks working in the industry who are trying to get a product or trying to work toward a certain thing and I'm just not interested in all of that. Well, Madeline, I know that you struggled a little bit with even the term director and you actually reached out to a mohican elder who helped you gain a new perspective and a better understanding of what it means to direct from a mohegan perspective. Can you talk about that? Yeah, so there was a point early on in my career where I was, I think I was directing a version of Mary Katherine eagles, you know, incredibly peace, liberal full moon, which is about the violence against women act and the survivors who testified to get it passed at that time to help retold their stories during the play. And when I was reading on this, I thought, my God, the western version of directing is so the word doesn't describe anything about what I'm trying to do about how you bring people together and you work with folks. And my mentor, the way William selling room junior, he was like, you need to talk to you. We need to be using the words in our own languages to talk about what we're doing. And so at that time, I spoke with mohegan elder Stephanie fielding about what the word would be in our language. And our language is in a reclamation project. So the language is shifting a little bit at that time. The word she gave me was she said men are heart she leaves us there. And so that's reframing was just so helpful for me because it made sense out of what I was trying to do, that it's not about, you know, you go here. It's not about that. It's about how do we get everybody on the path together to be able to go on the journey we need to go on together. And so the attention doesn't ever need to be on me, then the tension is always this halo can I lift up and support whoever I'm working with, what do they need right now? Like paying attention to that. It's such a gift that reframing because then I never needed to worry about what I was doing. It was always about how can I do the work I need to make sure everyone can do the work that they need. So that was really powerful. Folks, if you'd like to get in on our conversation today with Madeline say it, please give us a call. One 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. We're learning all about Madeleine's work today. She's a mohegan playwright, an artist, a theater maker. And she's got a play that's out now. It's called where we belong and we're learning all about just what went into that production with the inspiration was. And how the play actually transpires on stage. And Madeline, I read that you require theaters where you perform to agree to an accountability writer. And whenever I hear about performers and writers, I immediately think about big bulls with no green M and M's and things like that. So tell us more about what you expect from theaters that you partner with. Yeah, I should have done the M and M thing. That's probably honestly would have been easier. Yeah. So I was really concerned with those that my show was going to go on tour because all I could think was the idea of going in. It just sounded so colonial. It's one mohegan show. Story, why am I going to tell mine? Well, he is a story. All these other places, they should be telling the stories of those places. You know, there should be people from those places telling their stories and those spaces. So I really was not into this idea. And then I realized, well, if this is the first play in those cases, then that can only happen if I can require them to do these other things. If I can require they have an event with a local native writers work being presented so that they're building those relationships that they have an event or some sort of action around language or vitalization. Of the place that they're in, you know, specifically so that they're thinking about the language of the place that they're and not just my language. That they have a community event of some kind where they bring folks into their space and they welcome them and they begin to dialog around how they can partner together for the future, free tickets for all native folks because that just seems like a given because everyone's happy tickets anyway on their land, but also for me as the performer, the play is more powerful and better and easier to perform when there's other native people there in community with me. So it's really important for a lot of reasons. What are the other things that they agree to do? Oh, they have to agree to never, never perform red face again in their theater. And in a few other things, yeah, and I just thought that, okay, if I'm going to do this,

We're speaking today with theater writer, actress director and overall theater maker, Madeline say it, and we want to hear from you too. Are you familiar with Madeleine's work? Please join the conversation by calling one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. That's also one 809 9 native, our phone lines are open our producers are standing by so please. Give us a call. And if you have a question from Madeline, she's here. She's happy to answer any of our questions or respond to comments from our guest today. And Madeline, I'm sorry, I was a quick break. We had to go to there. I'm going to go, but before we, before we broke up, you were talking about your background and Shakespeare and as a child or as a young student reading Shakespeare and imagining some of these plays in Native American setting, Native American settings. And I think what's interesting is Shakespeare died in 1616. It was only a few decades after the British had begun colonizing in America. And Shakespeare actually referenced indigenous peoples in some of his work, specifically, I'm thinking of the tempest. There's an indigenous character in the tempest. And I understand you actually directed a version of the tempest and built upon that indigenous character. Can you talk about that? Sure. So actually the first play I ever directed, right? And this actually is in my piece where I talk about my relationship to it. This is an early point in that, but the first piece I ever directed was mohegan reimagining of the tempest where we looked at the indigenous characters as being from here in their language as being up here. And it was centered on the question of what would happen if the quote unquote indigenous character within that play could get his language back. And what would that journey be like if as he moved toward freedom, his language came back to at that time, there wasn't native theater being produced everywhere, the way that there is now back when I directed that first production. And so I was desperately trying to find a way to tell a story that had meaning to me using the tools that were handed to me and thinking about Shakespeare's language in that way. And so yeah, so that original production, it really centered around what if this was a story of fear as opposed to a story of somewhere else. Now I wouldn't make those same choices because, you know, I have a different set of critical tools around that text and what I think it means now, but there has been an incredibly strong legacy of indigenous adaptations reimaginings and translations of Shakespeare's plays. And the fact that it's happened a certain number of times, I think, you know, really tells you that there is a kind of value in that work. And a lot of the folks doing translation work, particularly there's been a lot of really incredible indigenous language translations of Shakespeare, particularly in Alaska, native languages, a few different ones that come to mind. But those projects, those are what actually makes it exciting to me because I'm not an interesting man as I am interested in the way that the work gets reinterpreted and reinterpreted and reinterpreted over time. And what that means for the different periods of time in which it exists. And I think the fact that it's being questioned and grappled with so deeply now, both by native folks, but there's also, you know, I feel like there's a tradition right now to evolving of native adaptations of all sorts of western classics. In addition to Shakespeare, you know, Vera starboard alone has made a Christmas Carol and a native Pride and Prejudice adaptation now that are both fantastic. So there really is a body of work coming from lots of native artists around this. But yeah, that very first production of the tempest that I directed was how I entered into directing was this thing of like, hey, I see something here, someone else doesn't see let me tell my story through this text. And in that, the caliban character was mohegan and the aerial character was a flock of blackbird. And the idea was was that it was centered in my homeland, and it had a prologue in mohegan. At the time, because the idea was, as we were setting it up as a story of something that happened long ago because at the end of that play, the settlers leave the island. And so my thinking was, okay, well, what if this was something that happened? And then the settlers never stayed. So I was really imagining it through my own lens at that time. Well, now let's talk more about where we belong in a one person play, it's got to be challenging. That's just you up there on stage, like I mentioned earlier, there's not a lot in terms of set decorations or costumes. It's pretty much just you, but you've got a team behind you, right? It's not just you doing the whole show. I mean, I would imagine there's folks that help you with it. Tell us about that. Yeah, so yeah, yeah, exactly. As a solo solo show, right? Because you always have a creative team and designers and all of that. And there's a team that tours with me. But in terms of onstage, it is just me. Offstage, you know, we have a costume designer, a sub and Ali, who I've worked with a lot who's fantastic and then there's a director and a production designer and a sound designer and all of that. So if I don't composer, because the music is really scored to me, Eric choki made this really specific composition to score to my emotions to help keep people more access. But on stage, it is me, but it doesn't interesting. It doesn't always feel as much like a solo show. I think because of the fact that I'm there, storytelling with the audience, but also because I bring my ancestors with me on the journey. And they show up as characters. And so that relationship also makes it not feel quite as much like one person alone as I am not really up there alone, but also the audience is watching me constantly engaging with other folks and other spirits who come with me on my journey. It is difficult. I so prior to this production, I was a director predominantly a director and a playwright a bit, but predominantly director, so I was used to working with large groups of other native artists and never feeling never getting to feel alone, which actually is a big, big, difficulty too, right? Is just finishing the show. There's no other task numbers when you're kind of like, okay, have a good day. You should help, you know? It's very different than working with large groups of people all the time. So it's been hard sometimes because sometimes you know the audience may be there's no other native folks there that night, maybe they don't fully get it. You know, it can be difficult. But it's been a real learning experience. You know, I'm constantly trying to take care of my physical health a lot more because one little injury if you have to do the same thing every single day, but you don't need to do your back and everything becomes a big deal. Because I'm sorry you don't have an understudy, right? I mean, it's just you. If you can't do the show, or

"That was a trailer for Madeleine say it's one person play where we belong. She joins us now, here today a Native American calling as our native in the spotlight. Madeline, welcome to the show and congratulations on your success. Thanks so much for having me here. Absolutely. In Madeline, please feel free to further introduce yourself if you'd like. Chad and TV used to choke. So I'm Madeline as you said, I'm a citizen of mohegan tribe. Lucky to be calling in now from Connecticut. And where I'm working on the project flying birds diary that you mentioned earlier and I'm just so excited to be here and be speaking with you today. Thank you. Madeline, we're super excited to you to have you on the show and just to learn more about you and all of these fantastic plays and all of your other work. So I wanted to start because I read an earlier interview in which you shared that where we belong was not originally meant to be a play and I'd like to ask you what changed that perspective. Yeah, it really definitely was not meant to be at play. I originally wrote it to process and things I was going through. And as a sort of storyteller, theater maker, I processed it through story, but people kept becoming interested in the story. And wanting me to share it more. And a big part of why it wasn't supposed to be a play, right, was because it was so personal and so vulnerable. And I've directed a lot of plays by other fantastic native artists that are personal or vulnerable to them, but I had never shared anything that was super personal about myself publicly in that way. And I was so terrified early on what will they think about me about the fact that I'm talking about these things, what will my mom think? My tribe think, what will everybody think? And so I kept making when I had to perform at the first time, it made me very sick because I was just so nervous and also the experience of going back through my own experiences that were so close to me still at the time. I thought, well, there's no way it would be sustainable to do it more than once. The first time I was invited to actually perform it, was it Shakespeare's globe in London. And I felt like there were things in it that they needed to hear. And so for that reason, I was willing to go over there and talk about the ventures of my people across the ocean to England. Our relationship between the mohegan nation and England over time and also the relationship between Shakespeare, our indigenous language and colonialism felt like important things to talk about over there. But originally, when they said, it comes out over here, I thought, oh no, how could I even do that? You know, it's just so much to go through each time. But what changed it for me, a big part of what changed it was people's reactions. Not only realizing that every time I shared it, people actually appreciated it. They weren't mad at me. You're making fun of me or all the silly things that went through my head when I originally was thinking about what will happen if I share this with people. But not only the native audiences who my folks folks from my tribe were super appreciative of it, my family were super appreciative of other native folks are super appreciative of it. But even non native folks would write me notes and things find me through social media or after the show. They would write me notes sharing their own stories because after I shared my story with them, they wanted to share something back. And that was really powerful to me. It made me feel like what I was doing was worth something. If it was actually affecting people in that way. And so that's what made me want to keep doing it. Madlyn, let's talk a little bit more about the plates of it's just you by yourself on stage the set is basically mounds of dirt so it's just that you and a lot of dirt and if you could because I watched some videos on YouTube and it's really really there's just a lot of energy that you project throughout the performance. But if you could help our listeners just kind of understand and what is the journey of the audience as you perform on and where we belong and some of the key themes and just kind of just describe just what that experience is for somebody in the audience watching you on stage. Yeah, sure. So the play moves back and forth between time. It doesn't sort of hug a specific timeline exactly in the way that it moves, but it basically chronicles my journey in 2015 to move to the UK to pursue a PhD in Shakespeare and how as I go on that journey, it brings up the journeys of my ancestors who in the 1700s had to go to England and diplomatic missions for our people. And how actually there's a lot of parallels in it. A lot of things haven't changed that much. In addition to that, it's also the story of a wolf who becomes a bird. My name in mohegan, the translates to blackbird. And I was thinking a lot when I started writing about what it means to be up in the sky. What it means to be a bird person. And I had been flying a lot at that point for work, like I had gone from being someone who was always at home to someone who was flying, flying, flying constantly and thinking about that shift in perspective. And so a lot of the journey is that journey is the journey of me becoming a bird while crossing the ocean. And it goes back and forth through time a lot to sort of make sense out of that journey using family anecdotes and little moments throughout my life. But that is sort of the core of the journey. And it does grapple deeply with my relationship between my love of Shakespeare and my love of my own culture. And sort of the reckoning by the end that the reason why Shakespeare is so prevalent is actually at the cost of mohegan culture. And that the reason why I'm not able to I wasn't able to study mohegan as a kid and was able to study shakespear was because of all these colonial systems. So it's designed in a way that non native audiences by sitting in my mind going on the journey are forced to sort of see through my perspective. There's a scene that takes place at the British Museum over in the UK. And it's been really interesting having that experience because the things that seem so normal to us in terms of what we expect of museums and things like that. Are so shocking a lot of the times when our native audiences when told through our lenses audience member a couple of weeks ago who asked if the play and who asked if the museum and the plague existed. And I just remember that being particularly interesting is a question because they couldn't fathom that there were these institutions that feel our relations that don't give them back. Because they had never thought about museums in that way before. And it was like, yes, of course, that museum is a very real place. It's a very famous museum. But that's really what the play is doing is it's me up there, you know, making awkward jokes about colonialism for some of it. But also, you know, going on this journey and really taking the audience with me on this very personal journey through my own life. I want to definitely get into your background and your passion for Shakespeare and I think what really stands out to me is just from hearing you talk now and from watching what I've watched of the play is that you're critical of the colonial legacy and that in many ways is embodied by Shakespeare, but yet at the same time I can tell that you have tremendous respect for his writing in his genius.

Overturning Roe Does Not Make Abortion Illegal
"I was reading the federalist Madeline Osbourne who wrote a piece about corporate media, the media machine is in full full throttle doing its part to keep the pro abortion propaganda churning. They don't care about facts. Overturning roe V wade will not make abortion illegal. That's just, that's untrue. A majority of Americans. Do not support abortion. It's just not true. And this is a tough moment for this country. And as we wait for this decision, possibly this hour, I truly urge you to do a couple of things. First of all, take a big deep breath. Second of all, as we wait for what would be the most significant Supreme Court decision I think arguably in our lifetime. Is there anything more important than life?
How Can Parents Remove Woke Orgs From Schools? Pastor John Tells Us
"I'm pure ya mom here with my son tonight. Connor. And I had a question regarding, we've been going to school board meetings for the past two years in puree unified. And a big group of parents and we've got this organization right now called bloom 360 five going on in a lot of the school districts in Arizona. And I wanted to point on it because you talked about what is a man and in this organization, they disguise it as something else where they basically paint boys and men as all bad abusers and that if they're the provider of the home, that's a stereotype. So I guess we're having trouble. How do we get these organizations out of our schools? Besides running for school board, because I'm already doing that, this coming November. So I'm going to get on there and get it out. But I just want to help, I just want parents in the community if they're having these situations where we've got these big organizations or these big companies in our schools, how do we get them out of our schools? Right. And you're speaking about our public schools, correct? Yeah, correct. You know, when Madeline O'Hara fought to remove prayer from school. They had to replace prayer with something. They brought in metal detectors. They brought in cops. They brought in dogs, and they brought in all kinds of things. Here's the reality. When a place has told God that he's not welcome, that place becomes cursed. It's kind of hard for us to expect to have children receive our viewpoints and ideologies in a school system that's postmodern. And a school system that pushes socialism and Marxist ideologies. The best thing for us to do when we see that taking place is to find turning point school. Find dream city school, find a charter school that's not pushing those woke ideologies.

She's supposed to be sad. No, absolutely not, because Madeline albright is a special one. She's someone introduction. Well, she's special in the sense that she's a monster in every way. During the administration that she worked for, many that was under Bill Clinton, they had implemented verify that for me more than 1090s, yeah, that was the late 90s when she said that because she had the they had the economic embargo on Iraq. At that time. And a half a million people, young children died actually during the embargo. The deformity rate of radiation. This is 1996, so this is Quentin Taylor arrow. All right defended, on May 12th, 1986, albright defended UN sanctions against Iraq on a 16 minute segment in which Leslie Leslie stall asked her. We have heard that a half a million children have died. I mean, that's more children than that diet and in Hiroshima. And you know, is that price worth it? And I'll probably replied, we think the price is worth it. So this is the kind of inhumane human being this was low life she's someone who completely disregarded the lives of half a million children who died in the economic sanctions placed on Iraq, where Iraq couldn't purchase the necessary medical supplies and treatment for their patients all across their country, and as a result half a million children died. And this is the this is what she thinks of it that we think the price is worth it. So pardon me if I see any Muslim eulogizing her rest in peace, any of that jazz, which I know what's going to happen from the leftist Muslims because that's their crowd. Sorry, you were going to say? No, no. That's right. Yeah, I was confused because she was first appointed ambassador to the United Nations. And then she became Secretary of State. So there's two different positions she held under the Clinton administration. She's a grotesque monster. And that's all I wanted to say about it. There's nothing more deep and insightful to say about her, but that she passed away today and we hope she gets what she deserves from a lot of..

"We haven't covered my goodness. I mean i think. I mean we did touch on this but i i would love to just reiterate the the importance of your so many people have it. I have this belief that their genetics are going to define who they are as far as chronic disease risk and and their overall health and okay. Well my mother is in a you know memory care facility. So that's just where i'm going to end up or you. My father died of heart disease. So that's just where i'm going to end up and and it's really our lifestyle that is going to play a role our our genes certainly play a role but the lifestyle is what is really going to affect your help. You gain that long healthy active life that you want. And so i just can't reiterate that enough people will say that you know your genes are. Your genetics are kind of loaded the gun. But it's your lifestyle that pulls the trigger and it's so so true like you get that a good healthy lifestyle going and you can make such a difference will so in you'd mentioned when we're about lifestyle medicine there were six pillars. So i know this what we're talking about. Life's our time a lot but what is one thing people could do right away. That would you know. Get them down the right path. Like where do you recommend. People start with something simple. But what's an easy thing. A simple thing you know one of the first things i always go to is a good night's sleep and people are like people are always surprised that that's like where i want them to start. But i feel like the physical activity the ability to manage a stressful day the ability to eat a healthy meal. All of those things are so much easier if you have good quality sleep on board and if you're trying to make all these changes in your lifestyle but you're not sleeping well it's like you are swimming upstream fighting against current there. So where do we start. Getting a better night's sleep. I mean it's one of those things that sound so easy and yet obviously. We're not doing it so it's not easy. i think. What like a good first. Step i tell people to do is to develop a really good structured consistent bedtime routine and when i say that i mean starting like two hours before your actual bedtime and and being consistent night after night with that routine and with the time that you're going to bed and not varying it on weekends you're really trying to be very consistent but it means things like turning the electronics off the blue light waves. That are going to interfere with our day. Interfere with our melatonin secretion which are like sleep hormone. But so turning the electron ix off you know dimming the lie not doing anything like you scrolling on facebook or doing any of those things that stimulate our minds and can get us all wired wrong direction. When we're wanna go sleep eliminating those things thinking of things that really are calming so dimming. The lights nice music or reading a paper book thing or stretching yoga meditation. There's all kinds of things but creating a consistency in the that. Our two hours before bed and doing it night after night and then the other thing avoiding alcohol soon before bed and definitely caffeine in the afternoon evening hours but if you start doing those things that like that right there can make such a huge difference. Alright excellent so thank you very much madeline for for being on today and for sharing wisdom and your experience and congrats again on that the ultra that is you and yeah thank you so much thank you..

Let's keep an open mind and you know have maybe a different way or not. Just be so concrete that they don't work what people typically tend to find like. Is that just an excuse that they've been giving themselves in out that they've been giving themselves or is it just the way they approached it. Well they just didn't approach it in a way that worked well for them or in. Sounds like if if you use the example of goals. What i found in talking to them is in the past. It has come back to to the all or none mentality and things like that. Yeah they've set goals but they've set like really big goals without much structure in between here in the air and so they end up thinking well setting a goal doesn't work for me versus starting with something really tiny undoable and where you have some confidence that you can do it and you do it and and then continue to gain that confidence if you if you start with something just very small very attainable you very relevant to the overall picture and you actually make it happen then you get a little confidence. Go a little bigger. You know. there's a whole kind of structure in there to to to reach that bigger goal. But when you just go from here to there it's a lot of times people think it just doesn't work. Well we've covered a lot here today. Madeline so let me ask. Where can people find you.

Absolutely yeah i really feel like there is. I mean i'm not gonna get too much into it. But of course syria type for women especially back then in women who didn't possess a lot of money you know i feel like a lot of stereotypes were sort of played on by the people who who talk about it but she really brings her stories to live she.

That wasn't through our own channels so whether that was the publishers are different platforms different partnerships. Anything that wasn't like our social media or our email or our advertising so influencers played a big role in that i also headed up the digital partnerships team during the inauguration which i might refer to as pick that presidential inaugural committee There we also utilized influencers in both cases. We really utilize them. It's kind of an external messenger or external channel for our broader goals. And is this something this focus on influence. There is something that really came about this election cycle or really became more sort of professional this election cycle or have you also seen it in the prior work on campaigns. You've done yeah. So i do think that will wonder hillary campaign in two thousand sixteen did dabble in this space. So definitely want to give them credit for that and then The d. triple seed did a very small geo tv program. Get out the vote program in the twenty eighteen cycle really in the last few days the
"madeline" Discussed on The Archive Project
"You know i have changed it anyway but it really served made me focus on on how much i wanted to see from being the object of odysseus story and make her the subject of this story There is a lot more. I could say And i'm really excited to be in conversation with omar and to answer questions from some of you so thank you all so much for listening madeline. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you for letting me be a part of this Because i'm an insufferable writer I wanna start with craft Both in song of achilles search there's the sense of the the beautiful economy of language and these icebergs sentences were so much sort of living underneath the water. I'm thinking The truth is men. Make terrible pigs these exceptional brief but but sort of beautiful sentences as somebody who you know when i finish a draft after. Go in with a shovel and shovel out adverbs and adjectives. I'm wondering do these sentences. Start out this way or are you. Are you constantly in the process of sort of working them over polishing. What is the style of getting these kinds of sentences onto the page. I'm will first of all thank you. That is lucky to say I do plenty of shoveling. Let me be clear. And i'm a big editor. I really believe in you know. I do probably a hundred drafts at least or maybe to put it another way for every page that ends up in the final version. I've thrown away a hundred other pages. So i am a big big editor and i liked the real work of writing. Comes you know during the editing phase. Oftentimes sentences that sentence the truth has been made terrible. Pigs actually came to me. When i was just riding in the car looking out the window so sometime sustained. Sometimes you just you know. That's what the greeks called the muses. Sometimes they just give you a gift but for the most part. I think when i'm writing. I'm often really thinking about poetry. I've always been inspired by poetry. And i oftentimes will start a writing day by readings in poetry out loud to myself. Because i'm always trying to remember that you know poetry. Does everything that novels do. But much more compactly and so. When i'm writing a novel. I really want all the words to be sort of load bearing So i always sort of having that in the back of my mind. What is the most compact and strong in moat. Most forceful way to say this. I'm curious about the register. I guess when you're looking at a character like sir see who over. The centuries has been subjected to a particular kind of trope in terms of how she's presented Rearranged obliterated pushed aside flattened so and so forth. How do you go about sort of narrowing down the register of that character to a place where where you can tell a story. That dozen sort of confine itself to to one particular one dimensional characterization of of this person. well I think i started with with sort of two things. One is that for me. Finding the voice of the character is really the key. I can't actually write anything worth anything until i have found the character's voice and it took me five years to find surface voice and the process of finding voice is really to me. I'm not a musical person but it's akin sort of watching people tune in instrument. I feel like it's like a little bit this way. No a little bit this way. now where is it. i'm trying to. I'm sort of listening for something. I wanna hear the character. Speaking in my mind i want to hear them sort of completely and i think having a background in theatre which i do i feel so much. Characterization is carried just the way someone tells a story and in the words they choose to use what they choose to reveal. Don't don't reveal so for me..
A Conversation With Suki with Punit Singh Soni, CEO
"We are joined by a special guest today from a company that's making some waves and creating some ripple effect while they're doing it. They're ceo puneet joins us today. Caen introduce yourself. Tell us about sukey dot ai and star with your vision and how you gotta go in plus madeline reid. Thank you for having me on the on the show. It's a pleasure to be here talking about this journey. I start by giving you a very quick background on on where i come from. I have all of three years of experience in healthcare so many of the folks who are interested in healthcare listening and probably have way more to teach me tonight. I have to say A my background is google. Most of it is from google. I was Before enterprise software startup it some venture investing Which i strongly recommend you not do if you want to actually build a company and be an operator and I in google in the search team then ended up actually running the mobile apps group for little bit Welcome games Social which you know has a whole different story it probably a good subject for different podcast And then we tried. Motorola was actually astern software. Their software product management. So did that for a little bit built a bunch of very interesting phones. One of them was the. I always on wise form. You could say okay moto x. navigate me to starbucks and this was before alexa. And siri and google assistant other things. Were even a a Even idea and so I kinda saw the evolution of boys and You know the whole voice tack especially when it comes to listening and ambient all of these things from the days when it was very early on And i ended up actually going to. India was the chief product officer flip guard which is india's largest e-commerce company. Came back and thought it would be very interesting to see how they apply some of this voice technology in alternative another spaces beyond dispute consumer. I had this thesis That the largest most interesting influential tech of emory ever is going to be in healthcare. Now i don't know if it's going to be now or five years from now or a decade from now but but i do believe that there is a very interesting company especially with the evolution of machine learning and artificial intelligence. And that's going to happen in in this space. And so that was the genesis in some ways of expirations in healthcare Obviously happy to tell you a lot more about you know how we chose this idea but that was basically how we got into a into the space and ended up putting together sukey. Yes ended up actually running Software product management at motorola and built a bunch of different phones. As part of it one phone that was probably very much well received in the market was moto x. Which was d. I always on phone. You could say things. Like ok moto x. Navigate we do starbucks and it will do that. This was before alexa and siri and the assistant from google even ideas. And so i've kind of seen a ambient passive listening and conversational voice from the days when it was barely technology and not really even a product and so ended up finishing motorola going to india. Where i was running a product for india's largest e-commerce company came back After we sold it to walmart. And i had this idea that there must be a way to use this trend that we're seeing machine learning and boys and why and apply that to healthcare
Nurse shares her experience treating COVID-19 patients in Miami and Los Angeles
"L. A county became the first in the nation to hit more than one million cases since the beginning of the pandemic. I see you. Availability remains at 0% at most hospitals. Cherie Perry Smith is a traveling ICU nurse who arrived in L a last week and she stationed at Martin Luther King Jr Community Hospital in south L. A, and she recovered from having Cove it back in October. Welcome to press play, Cherie and Welcome to L A. Thank you, Madeline. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you and this is your fourth station for covert treatment. I believe you were in Atlanta. Miami in Texas. How does the situation in l A compared to those cities? It's really rough. It was probably most comparable to Miami. Honestly, um, is, um I see you capacity is just it's beyond capacity. Um you know him, Okay. It was a 10 bed. I see you, and then it was expanded to 20. And now there are 35. We're still expanding. So it serves a community of 1.8 million in Compton. So it's It's really hard and Nations are The communities being Rod's very heavily. So it reminded me of a lot of Miami. Just limited resource is and people coming in really late in coming in. Really, really Siddiq. Oh, right, because they're putting off treatment because they know that there's very little capacity, right? Right. So people are coming in already, you know, with Multiple organ systems failing. Wow. So when you're comparing it to Miami, what do you mean by that? Take us back to the Miami days and what it looked like I was in Miami over the summer, and that's actually where o'clock clothing on while I was there. I mean, I didn't cover till October, but it was in Miami. It was it was like working. The ICU is normally pretty stable, like you is not like working in the ER. So when I've been er nurse, too, but I preferred ICU because it's always controlled. There's this uncontrolled is done stable, multiple cold's going off with multiple patients. It's a war zone on DATs. What Miami felt like and L a certainly Was very reminiscent of that period of time in my career where the patients are so unpredictable, and it's just when you have multiple people coding at the same time. It's very hard to give them the resources they need, because you're stretched very thin. And so that is what you're seeing now in L. A All right, um, lovely. We have PPE here, Which is my blessing. Just because Miami we were given one gown for patient per day. I was in one in 95 masks for three weeks. I get on in 95 mask every time I come on shift, so I'm grateful for that here, and I can use gowns one time and one time out. I'm grateful that you know people have generously donated to this hospital on we have peopie. But the patients are very, very stick. You know, we have patients in their thirties there. We have mothers. We have fathers. We have just people and it's really sad. You're on zoom calls, and they're saying goodbye and It's very hard. Were you expecting that? MLK has been on CNN. They've been told it the epicenter of the epicenter in L. A On. Guy knew all this going into the assignment, but I think because I had been in Atlanta for a little bit, and that's home. I kind of got used tol like, you know the stability of working in a stable covert unit again and So I was a little triggered when I got here. I had to take a moment to kind of be compressed because, um It took me time, you know, especially after having cold it, you know, to see those patients like that, cause I certainly thought that could have been me too, too. So, um my first night was rough. Umm Cold's going off and I looked like I was, um, orientation precept. It was amazing. All the nurses and staff physicians are amazing at the hospital it working so hard and Even stretched so thin that they said they sent in the National Guard to help us as well. So it's The first night I had to take a moment of my precept and say, Hey, I just need to take a breather. Get out my Mass because I felt those flashbacks coming back from working in Miami and And so many people die in a day. You know, it's really hard. Yeah, it really is. Especially since as you say, we saw these images you know, on the news from Miami over the summer and in other cities as well, New York, Of course in the spring. And yet, here we are. Almost a year into it. You hit the nail on the head. You know, it's like you think you're prepared and you never are. You know, I remember Washington when it was happening December in China, And then I watched in Italy and I watched the New York and Hey, And here we are, Like you said, a year out coming up on one year and and there's no break. It's just you feel like you don't get any respite. No. No rest from from the chaos and I mean, we're even in Texas. When I was in Texas. They had a mobile morgue Did er there? And, um You know, it's and I'm hoping with the vaccines rolling out, you know things will we kind of get herd immunity, But even nurses, there's physician. There's people that are very skeptical about it. And I've had both of my doses now, but I think that that's gonna be a problem with getting the pandemic under control is the apprehension to give back to native Can you explain that to me

Arman gave us some questions that people ask on facebook will get to some of them and use that as sort of a guide to our conversation but overall we will be discussing. Our experiences being raised by. Ri- parents i guess here. We go when if ever did you become aware of differences between the way you were parented compared to your friends or peers. Did you have any thoughts on these differences at the time. What's something you noticed. Your parents did differently than others. That you're thankful for or didn't mike. While i think definitely was aware in a school setting as far as being able to choose activities that we wanted to do. We were never made to do anything. I i think. That's pretty fundamental to the philosophy but we were never made take piano lesson. Everything was totally organically. Had to be our idea and we did take piano and sometimes our ideal was to take piano lessons and it would be for three weeks and then we'd be over it. Read enough to take them anymore. I think actually maybe there was a moment of try to persevere a little bit but for the most part we were allowed to do whatever hobbies we wanted to. And so i think madeline was interested in mad science to dig mount zion. Yeah i feel like. We got to explore a lot of different interests which helped us gain a ton of new experiences. Even if none of those ended up carrying. I still now. If i'm doing the crossword. I know some of the music answers because i took music either in school and a little bit out of school and i learned certain things that add to my knowledge of the world but at the time i was like i don't wanna do this anymore and i just sort of through that way but i still gain stuff from it and at my own pace. Yeah i have friends. Now who say pretty confidently that looking back. They wish that their parents would have forced them to do the violin or some sport because now they would be really good at it. I strongly feel totally the opposite. It's much more important to me than my parents raised me. In a way that fostered the sense of we trust you to choose your activities and pursue the day to day basis. Yeah passion of the day. Well yeah yeah. I feel like i'm one of those people who says that sometimes kind of jokingly but like if i actually think back in valuate do i wish that i magically had some skill. Yeah but that totally discounts. All of the time. That i would have had to spend doing something i didn't wanna do instead of being able to explore stuff that i did want to do <hes>. But something that we've talked about recently. Is that when you're a kid. You don't really know how other kids are parented. You know you can go to a kids house and they have different foods. They have different toys and stuff like that. But you don't see the differences in the parenting until you're older and you can talk to them about like. Oh what were your parents like when you were younger. Whatever is in your household you consider normal for a long time. I mean i don't know that much about how the brain develops but there's got to be a critical period for like when you start comparing yourself to others. It seems like middle school. I remember in middle school. All of a sudden everything was like. I was self conscious in a bunch of different ways that i wasn't before then including like what was at my house and what other tatton stuff but that point which is arguably the more important part in terms of the philosophy that our parents us before that point. It's not something that you notice every day. You don't see other kids with their parents enough to understand what's going on in their household and you don't care if you go for a play date you think of it more as like oh catherine's brand is to have a bunch of cheese it s- there or they always have this particular game but like you don't feel that you're less than because you don't have that in your own house. Yeah so. I don't think you have to worry about your kids comparing themselves to other people in like preschool. Like no no child. Is that aware

In Michigan, Some Are Being Asked To Do Own Contact Tracing
"Health departments in Michigan are so overrun with covert 19 cases that they're asking people to do their own contact tracing Brett Dahlberg reports. There are similar do it yourself public health efforts taking place across the country. Contact tracers in Washington County arm or slammed than they've ever been. There's just so many more people that are gathering and then are exposed. Madeline back Allure is a contact tracer for the county, which includes an armor, so it used to be. You know, we'd have a case and maybe that person had seen two people and now it's a whole classroom full of daycare students or it's a whole workplace. Contact traces get in touch with anyone who's been exposed to a person who tested positive for the novel Coronavirus. Racers. Tell those people about their exposure and walk them through how to quarantine. I call people who have been exposed but who don't have symptoms yet. On dry to keep them away from healthy people who have not been exposed. But the number of exposures is piling up faster than contact tracers can make those calls. And recently, the federal government shortened the recommended quarantine period from 14 days to 10 days. But in Michigan that only applies to some people in some counties, and now they have to explain that too. Yeah, it makes things more confusing. Not only that, but they're making twice as many calls as they did earlier this year, so the Health Department has tried to shorten the time that they spend talking with Cove in 19 patients by getting rid of some interview questions. They're sacrificing information for speed, but they're still not able to keep up. And that's true in hard hit places across the country from Virginia to Oregon on the brink of being overwhelmed. Local public health departments have been forced to try something new. They're asking people to basically do their own contact. Tracing Susan Ringler Cerniglia is the spokesperson for the Wash, not County Health Department in Michigan. She says people who test positive for the virus should start telling their contacts right away. Basically, you know what to do. Don't wait for us to call you because the department can't call everyone. Ringler Cerniglia says they're prioritizing calls. People like the county's oldest residents, those living in nursing homes and people who live in ZIP codes with the highest infection rates, But that means some people outside of those groups won't get calls at all. Public health professor Angela Beck says. That kind of prioritization is a good response to a bad situation. It is a last resort tool. It's not the ideal scenario. Is it better than nothing? Yes, I think it is back is an expert on public health work forces at the University of Michigan, she says. Cutting back on contact Tracing calls means health officials will miss information on where outbreaks are happening and who's at risk. The lose chances to break transmission chains and slow the virus is spread, Beck says. Without enough contact tracers to track the virus at an individual level. The only option left to contain it is a generalized approach. That's part of what's pushing governments toward really broad restrictions, like shutting down into our dining and requiring schools to go online. She says This failure was predictable, the result of years of poor funding of health departments. The chronic under investments in the public health infrastructure in our country has really cost us during covert 19. We can see the consequences very clearly back, and public health officials still want people to focus on the basics like masks and physical distance. And they still want you to answer contact Tracing calls. Just don't be surprised if the person who calls to say you've been exposed is a friend or relative

Trump irresponsibly continues downplaying Covid-19 as he tweets he will leave the hospital
"The upbeat attitude. That team president there's course of illness has had, um, didn't want to give any any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction. On doing so, uh, you know, came off that we're trying to hide. Something was initially true. And so is the effect of the matter is is that he's doing really well. White House physician Dr Sean calmly yesterday, admitting that he put an overly rosy spin on President Trump's Covitz symptoms during Saturday briefing Come on. He told the press outside Walter Reed Medical Center that President Trump needed supplemental oxygen twice after his blood oxygen saturation levels dropped. He was also given the steroid decks, a method zone, a drug typically used to treat serious covet cases. It added up to a muddled message on just how sick the president was, or is Trump, though tweeted today that he'll be leaving the hospital this afternoon. Meanwhile, White House press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany announced this morning she has Cove it She's at least the 11th member of Trump's inner circle to test positive. This caps off what can only be described as a tumultuous and damning weekend for the White House and for the country. A new national poll by NBC and the Wall Street Journal shows Trump trailing former vice President Joe Biden by 14 points. Joining us now is Sahil Kapur. National political reporter for NBC News. Welcome back Sonia. All right. So what if we can determine from any polling at all is the impact of Trump's diagnosis on his reelection effort in terms of popular support. Love Madeline. The race has been exceptionally stable for months. Now it has been somewhere in the range of a 6 to 8 Point lead for Vice President Joe Biden and national polling averages. The swing states obviously very off out front, but he has a comfortable lead in most of the swing states that he needs to win. Somebody's clearly the front runner. This point is clearly in the driver's seat. And the polls that we've had the balls that we've seen since the president's diagnosis are sparse. We haven't NBC Wall Street Journal poll that came over the weekend that was finished just before the president's positive test, and it showed by with a 14 point lead. That's the biggest and our polling and on the Sea Wall Street Journal going Going back to last summer, the summer 2019 between Biden Trump. So we can tell from that that the first debate certainly did not help President Trump by more than 2 to 1 margin. Respondents in our poll said that Joe Biden did a better job that made the president with a really awful fine here on this recent covert positive test on his diagnosis is certainly not helping him because it's pulled him off the campaign trail at the worst possible moment, and that's why he's that's why we see such an eagerness on his part to get out of the hospital, which he has said as you mentioned. He plans to do later on today. Right? I mean, there. It seems to be, though a risk that if his condition does worsen, he'll have to go back to the hospital. And that might not look any better might look worse in terms of the optics he wants to control. It's interesting in a number of fronts. It's a health risk to himself in the event that he were to get worse hospital, you know he wouldn't be in the hospital. Doctors wouldn't be around and have the facilities that could do it, Walter Reed to immediately tend to him. It's a risk to others because if he only tested positive several days ago It is pretty much a scientific and medical certainty that he still has it and will for several days to come. Who is going to come in contact with it going potentially infect them. And yes, it's a major risk to his. It's a gamble that he's taking. With regard to his presidential campaign and his political hopes, because if you were to suffer a setback of any kind, that would be devastating because it would again shine a light on his decision making throughout this process, whether it's you know whether it's been his policies on Kobe and his handling on a national scale or his decisionmaking personally, his refusal to wear masks at various instances is downplaying of the virus. The severity of it on multiple occasions. So tumultuous sounds quite accurate to describe the moment President Trump is in at this point. Yeah, Yeah. Still, he tweeted today? Don't be afraid of Cove. It don't let it dominate your life we have developed under the Trump administration, some really great drugs and knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago. Could people see that as well? Evidence that he was right that Cove? It isn't that big of a deal, despite the fact that more than 200,000 Americans have died of it. But that they see him as a strong leader who can beat the odds of this of this disease. It's hard to see a message like, Don't be afraid of Kobe resonating when, as you pointed out, 200,000 people in the United States have died for it. Still, tens of thousands of people per day are reporting new infections and that pound just continues to rise. Foreign above. Any other comparable country in the developed world. You know that's sending out reliable information. So it's the other problem with that message is President Trump had Access to the best treatment in the world. Not everyone has that he was given an experimental drug cocktail that ordinary patients were called and positive would not necessarily have access to, some medical specialists said. That that was akin to doing the kitchen sink at the fish, But you don't you don't offer a drug cocktail like that, unless you think that there's a real problem and that the patient wasn't responding well to you, no ordinary treatment, so It's just difficult to see how this helps the president because it's part and parcel of what he's been doing all along, which is to downplay the severity of the virus. To say it'll go away to say it's not a big deal, and that message is not served him well so far. Yeah, well,

Achilles and Patroclus in Modern Media
"A couple of episodes are discussed the mythological figures Achilles and Patrick lists and the depiction in ancient texts most notably in his Iliad I don't want to recap episode to thoroughly. So if that sounds interesting to you, I suggest you just go listen to that episode, but I will say a few things necessary background Achilles some. Patrick lists here is off the Trojan War, our break episode which depicted in the Iliad although there is genuinely some ambiguity as to the exact nature of their relationship in the Iliad their relationship is very intense and very important to the plot character arcs and emotional hot of that poll. What is not ambiguous is how their relationship is on the stood in the later Greek texts we discussed. So we discussed east glosses. Play the domes which survives only in fragments famous speech impetus symposium, Ace, Kaz courtroom speech against to Marcus all of which depict achilleas and Patrick lows in a sexual and romantic relationship. As we discussed earlier episode, those works stand relationship in a way that is anachronistic to the Iliad, but we nevertheless thought it was important to note that is reading is a very old an integral part of the evolution of the myth. That you can't really get away from if you're talking about them today speaking of the evolution of this myth, we also spent a bit of time talking about how although people generally appeal to Hermosa when discussing whether Achilles in Patrick Louis Wet. Really love this. Is True one canonical version of the myths in which they feature, and we would be doing them a disservice to understand as early as the real story and every following version as accurate or inaccurate by how it compares to that. I bring this up because it's very easy to find audibles and people talking about how modern adaptations on any good because then not accurate and these articles that generally quiet nitpicky and lazy, and I wanted to know this specifically. So we don't do that sort of thing ourselves. It's inevitable and desirable when adapting these myths into new mediums and feel like very different cultures than the original. That heard this man to make changes just it's necessary to on Seoul's materials while doing. So so we got a comment on differences here, but the compensation will be more like why those changes get made and do we think it works as opposed to just being like well in the Ilia? Data. So with that background out of the way, we're going to talk about Wolfgang Petersen's two thousand four, maybe Troy Madeline Milas to eleven novel the Sung Achilles and the twentieth eighteen BBC mini series story full of the city I think he ranked in the order of like worst to best in my opinion but okay, you may disagree. That was not why I decided to order them. In that way I just thought we'd chronologically but that's fine. I mean now that you said that you did it chronologically and I also view that as West best that makes me feel positive that maybe like an even better adaptation that I genuinely think is good it's coming to clear I don't love any of the music specifically. In seven years but will like no. Sorry in five years because they've come out every seven years how to for two thousand eleven two thousand eighteen. Cool. Okay. Nice. So. We'll be watching an amazing adaptation, the Trojan War with that we will love anyway. So we're going to begin with the to troy maybe the film for it was directed by Wolfgang, pay the send styles Brad Pitt Kilis who just a very two thousand thing to have. It was written by then relative newcomer David Benny off which explains why it's a bit of a dry run, the game of thrones. I that sounds up its vibe. I, was gonNA. Tell you some fun facts about this movie but I decided that they weren't that fun. I cut them all but I'm GONNA I kept one which I tell you solely because it might make you upset Australian. Fun Fact No it's not. So all of the actors in this speak in that accents with the exception of Eric Bana Rosebud, the to Australian actress who had told that they had to get rid of their accents. And I think that's disgusting screw you. Wolfgang. Petersen. I have no problem with like. Okay. You have to change accidents that doesn't sound like a fantasy will like I've whatever accent I have a problem with that and I mean like this some stuff to say about that. But if doing that because you want all your actors to have a consistent accent. Okay. But if you just hate the way Australians, tall, that's not acceptable. Garrett hedlund obvious American accent fine. But Eric Basil accent is absolutely illegal. Sorry. Thinking recompense the twenty twenty, five trae. Offers how the TROJANS are all. Star. I like it. Yeah. The film was commercially quite successful but received mixed reviews, which is frankly claimed more than it does those because it's a bad movie. I tried to watch this movie just like you know throughout my life. I've tried to watch this movie like three or four times. I've sat down in front of this film I've got like twenty minutes and I just can't do it. So. That's where I met with this. Okay Jason Do WanNA disagree and say it's a good movie. Nor I will say that like I don't think it's the worst movie like suddenly I watched this movie as a kid when it came out had no problems with a had some fun fight seines cool choreography some big actors doing fun things than having fun. I didn't really mind it and obviously now watching it I think it has some quite severe problems both as a movie analyzer adaptation I would certainly agree that it's the west of the three adaptations that we're GonNa talk about today. But then again, this is the point cost queers fact and it's not
