"Sex. One of our favorite topics. Sex sex. But we also want to know what happens behind closed doors for couples. It's something that over brunch, maybe your friends don't really bring up what their sex life is like, but it's something that is always top of mind, especially if you're new in a relationship or even ten years into a relationship, the topic of sex always comes up. So if we got a sex per couple with us today, Vanessa and Xander Marin, Vanessa's in sex therapist with 20 years of experience. And Xander is just a regular dude. I love that that's how you introduce yourself on the show. This is a regular dude, but you're really not. You're not just a regular dude. You're the host of pillow talks podcast and authors of the book sex talks. I'm holding it right now. That just came out and it's a number one new release on Amazon in the sex and sexuality category. Congratulations on that, as I'm holding your labor. Thank you. Love here. They're both in their late 30s. They live in Santa Barbara, originally from California, and they are married to each other, just want to clarify. And Xander. Welcome. Thank you guys. Thanks for having us. We're so excited to be here. So congratulations on the book and congratulations on the podcast as well. I feel like I intimately know both of you and I realize you don't know me. So you probably have so many of these people who have been hearing all about your intimate details, but I had this burning question this whole time is Xander, when did you know that Vanessa was a sex therapist? At what point was this information divulged? Well, I think that I knew from pretty much the very beginning. When we met Vanessa hadn't gone to grad school yet for psychotherapy. So she wasn't practicing, but it was her career aspiration. And I probably found that out first date, I'm gonna guess. I'm sure we talked about that. So yeah, I always knew that was something that she wanted to do. Yeah, it wasn't until maybe four or 5 years into our relationship that she really started practicing that on a daily basis. But yeah, it was always an exciting thing. It's cool to be able to tell my Friends that I'm dating a future sex therapist, but be honest, it made you a little nervous too, right? Was there intimidation? Vanessa beat me to the butt, the butt was that it was intimidating because I was like, it's fun to talk about sex that other couples are having or issues that other people are having, but I kind of always knew at some point I was gonna have to get honest about my own stuff. I was gonna have to confront my own issues or our own issues. And that was scary at first. I can only imagine. I'm intimidated talking to Vanessa. And I'm not even having sex with her. And then Vanessa, for you, when you started your research and your studies and then practicing, did you have any of your personal rules around sex?

"It's the working up to the moment, like for me, for instance, I can not get to turn on right away if it's like too hot in my apartment or if it's too hot anywhere. They're just certain things that you have to set up. And I think having quality time before intimacy turns me on so much. It makes me feel connected to my partner. Yeah, we even talk about it on this episode about the TV example and how that could be detrimental to get tired the last thing you want to do is have sex. But you know, I feel like we've had a lot of sex conversations on this podcast, but every time I learn something different, this one, this is based on the book that just came out that we got an advanced copy for and this is the book called sex talks by Vanessa Marin, who is a sex therapist and then her husband Xander. So we have both of them on the podcast. It's just the way they even introduce Xander as the husband as the guy, right? But the two of them by sharing just honest conversations in ways they approach sex and you'll hear through their story that even for sex therapists, sometimes it can be hard to have sex, especially in long term relationships. This conversation was just really great in the sense that it brought to light the fact that we're often so afraid to talk about sex, but you can do it in a way that doesn't feel so confrontational. I feel like in the past we've had conversations about talking about sex. It's always when there's something wrong. And they get ahead of it so much. Yeah, I love that. I love that. Sex is such a sensitive topic for so many people. And especially when you're single, you forget sometimes. I remember just being single and being like, once I'm in a relationship, we're going to be having sex all the time, because it's there. And I'll never be short of sex and then you get in a relationship you realize there's so much more to it. And if you don't talk about it, you end up just inserting your own assumptions into what you think is happening. And that is the ultimate sex killer is when you are assuming what your partner is thinking or wanting to do. Yeah, this episode is great. Like no matter your relationship status, like last week's episode, single and happy. We still said it was applicable for people that are in relationships and same for this, even if you feel like you're in a dry spell currently. I think just talking about it gets you a little revved up too and that could translate to just the way your vibe and energy is out of the universe, but also we talk about non creepy ways to talk about sex even early on. Not creepy is the key word. Q word. Yes. So we'll get into this conversation first. I just want to say thank you to everyone who attended the public happy hour in our Facebook group was a great turnout and apparently a member of our community revealed his girlfriend. To the group, it was like a first reveal. We actually had that happen two or three other times, right? Someone brought their significant other. Love it onto a happy hour. So funny. And also, you know, we are sad that our finding your
Why You Must Think Differently About Supply Chain Technology Strategy
"8 p.m. Monday, November 28th, 2022. Why you must think differently about supply chain technology strategy. At CS CMP supply chain brain sat down with NPO cofounder and CEO, Martin for which Marin to break down the multi multi supply chain complexity problem. Many companies these days are facing a different environment, different dynamics, Martin explains, referring to the increasing recognition that organizations today operate as part of an ever expanding ecosystem. Often referred to as multi enterprise supply chain business networks, these partnerships represent a fraction of the multi multi complexity businesses struggle with today. Martin goes on to explain that companies need to serve multiple sales channels multiple stores, multiple sites, multiple warehouses, multiple factories, multiple suppliers, multiple source in flows, and so on. This, in addition to operating across multiple countries having multiple currencies and needing to collaborate across multiple languages, it's a complex structure that is often unpredictable in nature. Partners can not always be relied on and issues of inflation, material shortages, and rising logistics costs serve to further complicate matters. However, Martin's view is a unique and highly optimistic one the businesses that find lasting success are those that embrace complexity

"Oh, Marin Cilic in his 15 double faults. Yeah, I mean, watching his matches, I have a very similar feeling to how I feel watching Maria Sakura's matches, which is I unclench on his behalf when he falls behind in the school. And that's what happened in this match. He was serving 5 6 in the deciding set. He's loved 30 down. Reels off. A load of incredible points, consecutively, he's one four down in the tiebreak. It looks like it's all got away from him. You know, public or any boosters such as steady Eddie. You just don't see you just don't see him throwing it away. From that point and he didn't. Marin Cilic wrenched it from him, he reeled off, you know, 2014 U.S. open, Marin Cilic for a few points there. He just couldn't do it at any stage when he was ahead in the school. And I'm fairly evaporation for him. A little bit like, I mean, in several length of this year with her serving woes. Just having to find a way to win in spite of yourself and how agonizing that must be. He's a poster boy for that just like she is, but it's very stressful to watch, isn't it? And as Matt put it perfectly in our WhatsApp group, does Marin Cilic have fangs? Colon, the most complicated question in tennis. Explain yourself Matt. That's the title of the essay. I have written the essay. I don't want to have to write it. But that's the title of it. Well, yeah, because exactly, as you said, it's so confusing because I think Marin Cilic is a more even more extreme example than those players you've named. And I agree it's similar in terms of sabalenka and saccharin because Marin Cilic is a Grand Slam champion. He's a Grand Slam finalist. He's a Davis Cup champion. He's achieved so much. So you know that the highs are really high with him. And every now and again, he has a spell in a match and agree it is often when he's behind in the score, where it appears like he does have fangs. He can totally take over. He can get a sort of look in his eye that just says nothing is going to stop him. And he's got so many weapons and he hits the ball so cleanly that there's sort of nothing an opponent can do about it. And it's the epitome of fangs when he's in that mode. But then there's the other side where he's twitching as he's about to serve and he's decelerating on his serve and his feet are doing a little jiggle just before he's about to hit a forehand and he's shanking the ball and mis hitting it and generally he's a sort of nervous wreck and he doesn't look like he has fangs at all. And you get those two experiences within minutes of each other. You know, he can go from looking like a U.S. open champion to looking like someone who isn't even going to be able to make a serve within seconds. And it just makes for such a such an extraordinary experience to watch him completely enthralling, but a little bit stressful at the same time. A little bit stressful. I mean, I got the feeling you were about to walk out. He was so better of the undulations in the match. Just couldn't be doing with it at one stage. And yet that was within the best atmosphere of the week and one of the best atmospheres of the year wasn't it? That was classic Davis Cup. Home, team, on the back foot, fighting back, which is twice a break of serve up in a deciding set. And then I got the sense to realize that they could get to him as well. And they were trying to is that how it felt? Yes, I really think so. I think Chile just showed enough vulnerability and the entire stadium sort of seized upon it. And it was spine tingling in there at times because they came up with some extraordinary shots as well. It wasn't totally Marin Cilic sort of melting down. You know, there were some forehand passing shots in particular from Pablo carreno busta, which were extraordinary and the noise in the stadium cut right through you. They had chance, they just were cheering, they were standing on their feet, and then when something happened that they didn't like, they made a very European noise, which is to whistle. It's not something that Brits ever do. Brits boo, I think, and Europeans, Spanish, they whistle. And it sort of gives you a bit of a headache when you're in the stadium. It's such a sharp noise. But it's, you know, there were over 9000 people in the stadium today, all doing it at once. And it was an overwhelming sensory experience in that stadium. And as you said, exactly what Davis Cup is known for. It's almost, it's almost difficult to praise the new version of Davis Cup for that because this is what Davis Cup has always had. This is what we're searching for at every tie, if possible. But now it feels like we really have to treasure the ties where it's like this. And of course, Spain losing means it might not be for the rest of the tournament. I still think that would be good crowds, good atmospheres, but it won't be like this again, where the home nation was playing and yeah, it was a hell of an experience to be in that stadium. He was one four down. It looked like he had, I mean, as you said, Corona buster, I think, on the run is one of the great counter punches. And he got himself to four one. It looks like chili, it's just fallen apart. The crowd of got to him. And then he won one point to get back to four two and he got that look in his eye that you referenced. That sort of I am not going away. Look, and I am coming back. And he did. I mean, from one four down to win that tiebreak, that is an extraordinary achievement. And then he came up with a running passing shot of his own Catherine that I think is one that will take with us from 2022 into 2023. Yeah, Corona buster had made a really great little volley, very, very close to the line, Marin Cilic is on the run. It wasn't a very familiar sight somehow, like I just don't think of Marin Cilic is the running passing shot guy. He's a very good mover for his height, very, very good. Very rarely look slow or lumbering. But I still just don't think of him as the running passing shot going. There he is, banana ring this forehand around Corinna bass and not quite around the net post, but that sort of a vibe. And it's just plopping inside the line. It was wonderful. And then on match point, 6 5, he plays just, I mean, it was totally reminiscent of 2014 U.S. open Marin Cilic. Those laser like ground strokes with such conviction of on them.

"Really read a lot of their essays. They kind of got me into this mindset that I want to have a tech startup or tech company because I think that spolsky wouldn't even use the word startup, I want to have that and basically try my hand at it. So that I think was the most important inspiration. But we talked about mistakes earlier, right? But a little bit different spin, it'll be interesting to see where you go with it. If you could go back to the beginning, what would you do differently or where would you consider taking a different approach? That is actually a very good question. And it's an interesting one because you don't know how it is how it would have worked out. So one of the roads that I think we could have taken is doubled down on being everything to everyone. It was making something that's, you know, just don't niche down, rather build a product that is really just for anyone's site. And marketed to creators to small, medium businesses of any sort. So that could have worked out differently, but I'm not, I'm not sure whether it would have because it might have jumbled jumbled up the messaging and what we're actually trying to convey. Because one of the initial problems that we had was that we were trying to be too general. So I think that the way we played it was actually correct. It's an interesting alternate reality. But I actually wouldn't change that much. I think we played it okay. Will maren last question. So you're getting on a plane and you're sitting next to a young entrepreneur who's built the next big thing. The jazz about it, they can't wait to show it off to the world. They can't wait to show it off to you right there on the plane. What advice do you give that person having gone down this? I would say most important thing is not not to quit. It is slightly more subtle than that because if you want to do startups, you'll probably be miserable at a corporate job. So it's important not to quit the startup world, the startup grind as such. But on the other hand, it's important to also realize when an idea is not going anywhere and then having the guts to just pivot and move into something else. So I would say it's important to have some sort of a safety net and now I'm just getting all practical. But for me, it was having a top tail profile so that I always knew that if money got tough after I left Amazon and went into startups, that I could always just take on some projects on the site. And that really gave me a lot of peace of mind. So I would say figure out something like something like that. Where you have a bit more of a soft landing. Where it's not entirely binary like now I'm doing my startup and then if that fails and bombs, then I'll go work for some big corporation that I might not be excited about. So that I think is more life advice. It's not product or business advice, but I think it was very valuable to me, life advice, standpoint, sure. That's great advice.

"It's very difficult to gain independence of the left hand, but as a conductor, you really need that because you need to have, you losing 50% of your potential vocabulary, otherwise. Because you're saying the same thing with both hands, which is unnecessary. So sometimes I ask them to put their left hand behind their back, put it in their pocket, sometimes some people really, that still doesn't stop it. And so then we loosely tie them up. Really, they can always escape easily. Or I've had moments where I've put a blindfold over a conductor's eyes because they're so distracted by what they're seeing, that they're unable to focus. And sometimes that can bring a focus to them. You know, and then I have some weights that they can try to use around their wrist. You hook the one pound weight on to feel the weight of the sound. So we have a lot of, we do a lot of fun things. I have to say. Do other conductors who teach do that kind of stuff? I have no idea. This is stuff you came up with yourself? Yeah, I mean, these are all techniques that I used on myself as I was trying to develop. You know, I'd watch myself on the video and I'd say, oh, why can't I feel that sound? I can't feel the weight of the sound. And then I would then I would grab a bag of rice and try to conduct holding that bag of rice so that I could feel the weight. Those kinds of things. And conducting it so much about imagining the feeling of something. And conveying that. So it's really, really important to be constantly pushing ourselves toward that. Oh, it was really interesting.

"Here's some of the things that were said about my guest maron alsap early in her career when she fought to be accepted as a conductor. These are quotes from fellow conductors who found it too much of a stretch to take a female conductor seriously. Here goes. A sweet girl on the podium can make one's thoughts drift towards something else. For me, seeing a woman at the podium, it's not my cup of tea. This quote gets right to the point. I don't really like women conductors. ASAP became the first woman to lead a major American orchestra in 2007 when she became the music director of the Baltimore symphony orchestra, a position she held for 14 years. There were other firsts, including first woman to be the principal conductor of the Bournemouth symphony orchestra in England, and the São Paulo state symphony orchestra in Brazil, and the first and only conductor to receive a Macarthur fellowship, the so called genius award. Her mentor was Leonard Bernstein, and like Bernstein, her passion for music is wide ranging from the standard repertoire to symphonic jazz compositions, film scores, and contemporary works. She's currently the principal conductor of the OR F Vienna radio symphony orchestra, making her the first woman to ever lead a Viennese orchestra. She's the subject of the new documentary the conductor. It's streaming on the PBS website and on several other streaming platforms. Marin Elsa, welcome back to fresh air. It's been too long. Congratulations on this new documentary. It's terrific. Oh, thanks so much. I want to start on a very sober note. And I should mention that we're recording this on March 22nd. And we're running it later than that. And you and I don't know what will have happened in Ukraine in the interim. But I want to start with a performance that you conducted of the Ukrainian anthem with the orchestra de Paris. And I believe early March, what would you say about this piece of musically? You know, I think anthems are strange beasts in a way because they're not necessarily reflective of the culture, from which they emanate, but they have a certain nobility. And I think this is rather the sensibility about it is rather somber, nobility. And I think as far as anthems go, it's quite engaging. And of course, emotionally performing this in that moment was extremely moving. And the whole audience immediately stood up and the orchestra remained standing and one of the musicians said a few words before we played and I think every concert I've done since then we've tried to include some kind of reference to the crisis that's occurring in Ukraine. So here's my guest Marin Al SAP conducting the orchestra de Paris in the Ukrainian national anthem. That's.

"I think I had so many so many things to carry that I just put a backpack on and said, okay, just fill it up and let's go. I want to talk a little bit more about working with Bernstein. There's a couple of clips with you working with him in the tanglewood days when you had your fellowship at tanglewood when you were studying conducting. And he seemed so affectionate toward you, and you can see that not only in the look on his face, but he's kind of putting his hand on your shoulder and I think putting his arm his arm around you at one point. And you can tell that he likes you who feels this bond with you. He's encouraging you. And I was watching that with two sets of eyes. One thinking, oh, he's really encouraging her and the other thinking, if this was today, he could be accused of being inappropriate in touching you without asking your permission first. So are you very self conscious now about how you touch people in the orchestras you conduct? And I'm wondering, too, if Europe has the same kind of sensitivities that America has now. You know, I think that it's always a good idea to try to be respectful and remember that not everyone is open to being touched to being to having that physical contact. And while, of course, I worry that the pendulum will swing too far the other way. But that's a natural, I think that's a natural cycle that happens. I've been known to kind of tie up my students. Okay, that doesn't sound right. But when they're left arm is doing something weird, sometimes I'll tie it to their and I've really thought twice about doing that in the last few years. And before I tie up one of my students, I asked them, is it okay? So you know, but I think for conducting, you know, it's so much about being able to have independence of hands and your posture and what if they're nodding or if they're bending or if their knees are, you know, you have to bring some awareness to these different habits. And sometimes the only way to do that really is by touching the person on the knees, come on your knees, keep bending here. Do you feel it? Do you see that? But of course, we have video also. And I say, come on, watch the video and I do a lot more come on, watch the video than I do touching anymore. But I was never as affectionate as Leonard Bernstein. I don't know another human being who is that affectionate. I'm interested in hearing more about why you'd want to tie somebody's hand up. What were they doing wrong that you wanted to correct? What happens is that since we're symmetrical beings, when one does something with one's right hand, there's a natural tendency to do it the exact same gesture in opposition. So it becomes a mirror image. It's like when you're walking and you move your arms. So it's very difficult to gain independence of the left hand, but as a conductor, you really need that because you need to have, you losing 50% of your potential vocabulary, otherwise. Because you're saying the same thing with both hands, which is unnecessary. So sometimes I ask them to put their left hand behind their back, put it in their pocket, sometimes some people really that still doesn't stop it. And so then we loosely tie them up, you know, really, they can always escape easily.

"You can be whatever you want. And your parents, your parents were musicians. Yeah, my parents were both professional classical musicians. Yeah. And I don't know if they were yet in this position, but your father became the concert master at the New York City ballet orchestra and your mother was a cellist in the orchestra. And she also was a cellos for Radio City Music Hall. Interesting career or something each had. But anyways, they were really accomplished musicians. So they really understood the world of classical music and what an offense this was to you. Were you applied to be in the conducting program at Juilliard several times and you had studied at Juilliard ever since you were 7, but you kept getting rejected from the conducting program and once you were told that you'd never be a conductor and that your muscles had atrophied. Yeah, I think I was 2021 or 22. What do you think they meant that whoever said this? Well, I think I have to give some background to this because you know I really had no experience as a conductor. So I think they were reacting partly to my naivete, my lack of skills, yet all these things. I don't think this was strictly gender based. And also, there was the feeling that if you couldn't reduce a score at the piano, that you could never be a conductor. And that's what this particular professor was reacting to. I did the audition I got very far and then I had to I had to play from a Mueller score at the piano and they were all transposing horns and piano wasn't my answer and I played the violin. And so it was pretty bad. And that's when he said, you'll never be a conductor because all of your muscles have atrophied. And I thought, you know, I play the violin, which enables me to speak to the majority of the orchestra because I understand what it feels like. I know what it is to be a string player. I know what the sound is. And of course, it's really changed over the years. And although it was felt you had to be a pianist to be a conductor. It's now really changed. And string players, I think, are really coming into their own as conductors. So I do want to say that I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that I had no experience. But I was a little bit the first time I applied to Juilliard. I had just graduated with my masters in violin performance, and I got a form letter saying that my academic credentials didn't meet their standards. So I stormed into the president's office on that one. And you know, I kept trying. I tried two more times. And I have to say very recently, just last year, when I was awarded an honorary doctorate from Juilliard, I read my final rejection letter. And the students really appreciated it. Oh, can you paraphrase some of that for us? Oh, it really says that we're sorry to inform you that our committee was an unable to consider your application. And we're refunding your $35. And we wish you good luck. Something like that. But you have to, it's easy, of course, now, to have some distance on it. But in the moment, I was, I was really devastated because it felt that everywhere I turned every door was just closed. And that's what really prompted me to say, well, if every door is closed, I just have to build my own house. So I just got all of my friends together all my Friends from string fever, my swing band, and Friends from Juilliard and Friends that I had met gigging around New York. And I said, would you guys come and start an orchestra with me? And that's how we started the wonderful concordia chamber orchestra. Let's take another break here, and then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining us, my guest is conductor Marin ASAP. There's a new documentary about her called the conductor that streaming on the PBS platform and also on several other streaming platforms. We'll be right back. This is fresh air. Hi, I'm Jen white from NPR's one a podcast where we get to the heart of news politics and culture. We recently covered subjects you wish you'd taken in school like civics and personal finance. Our in case you missed it series is part one O one part discussion about why certain subjects are often left out of curriculums. Listen now on the one a podcast from NPR. This is fresh air, let's get back to my interview with conductor Marin alsop. She's currently the conductor of the Vienna radio symphony orchestra. She became the first woman to be the music director of a major American orchestra when she became the music director and conductor of the Baltimore symphony orchestra, where she stayed for 14 years. It was very difficult for you when you became the conductor of the Baltimore symphony orchestra, the conductor and music director. I think you thought you'd gotten the job, but then there was there were protests. In the documentary about you, it's described as a fabricated letter of complaint by a handful of musicians in the orchestra. What was the story behind that letter? Well, you know, I don't really know the story behind the letter and I actually never read the letter and the first time I was seeing it was in the documentary, believe it or not. Because I was so traumatized by the experience. I had guests conducted the Baltimore symphony a couple of times. And it was fantastic. What a wonderful orchestra I thought and what great potential I love the city. I love the musicians. And so to be offered the position by the board of directors and then to be met with this out of nowhere protest that couldn't be really ascribed to any one in particular. Because everyone was sending around anonymous comments and concerns and this and that and it wasn't until I saw the documentary the first cut of the documentary that I saw the some of the phrases in this letter that hiring this woman will set the Baltimore symphony back 36 years. I'm not sure where they got that number. These kinds of things that it would destroy the future of the orchestra, et cetera. Anyway, it's a complicated situation that I walked into because there was such a history of adversity between the management and the board and the musicians. And I decided that I wouldn't take the job until I spoke to the musicians because I wasn't going to I didn't think they knew me. I mean, it was true. They knew me from a couple of guests weeks, but they didn't really know who I was. And I wanted to at least be able to explain to them what I thought I could bring to them. So I went to Baltimore before I would sign the contract. And spoke privately to the musicians. What.

"That was my guess, Marin ALF, conducting the London philharmonic orchestra and the finale of brahms second symphony. You know, one of the things you do so well is talk to the audience and explain what's going on in a music piece and what they might listen for and I used to hear you at the cabrillo music festival in Santa Cruz where you were the conductor for like 25 years. It was like a two week long summer festival. And you would always just like play excerpts of the piece before actually playing the whole piece and say, here's what's happening here. And I love the informality of that and the concerts were in a gym, so the setting was formal. Everybody was just showing up in the clothes they had ordinarily wear. There was utter informality. And I found that just making the music so accessible and so much more interesting to hear because you were telling me things to listen for. As somebody who likes that approach, as you do, did you ever find that people confused informality? With a lack of authority. Oh yeah, I think that's often a danger that we see that composers who write music that's quote unquote accessible are often considered less profound. And I think speaking to the audience, it's always been a hallmark from my days of playing in nightclubs with my swing band in jazz clubs. And I remember the first night we performed string fever at Mikhail's pub up on 97th and Columbus, and I had a whole prepared little talk I was going to give. You know, now this tune is from 1930. I had this whole thing. And I don't know, everybody was drinking pretty strong that night. And they were like, come on, just play your music, and I realized, okay, this can't be this formal. I have to go with the flow. And that started to inform my speaking at concerts that it has to be about the moment you're in about sharing with the audience some things. And when you're listening to new music, it's very important. I mean, I try to imagine someone just coming in from work off the street and trying to digest a brand new piece of music. It's a whole language you've never heard. It's a vocabulary. Maybe an alphabet, you're not familiar with. And if you know a couple of phrases and a couple of just a couple of thoughts, a couple of ideas, you have such you have a much richer experience of the piece. And so that really is my goal always. Bring the composer closer to the listener, rather than having always these distances. I don't think distance equals greatness. I think greatness equals greatness. Bravo. Let's take a sharp break here. And then we'll talk some more if you're just joining us, my guest is Marin oswalt, and there's a new documentary about her called the conductor that you can see streaming on the PBS website and on several streaming platforms. We'll be right back after a break. I'm Terry gross, and this is fresh air. NPR news is committed to keeping you up to date on the latest developments from Ukraine. State of Ukraine is a podcast that brings you NPR's best reporting on the war and what might come next. Listen to state of Ukraine, from NPR. Let's get back to my interview with conductor Marin ossoff. She was the first woman to conduct a major American orchestra in the U.S., and that was the Baltimore symphony orchestra, which she recently left after 25 years. She's now the conductor of the Vienna radio symphony orchestra. And she has been the conductor of the Bournemouth symphony orchestra and has conducted orchestras worldwide. She has a very groundbreaking place in classical music. So you wanted to be a conductor ever since you were what? 7 or 9, was it? Yeah, I know it was 9 9. It was 9. I don't know if that makes much difference, but I was not exactly. And one of the reasons why I was because you saw a Leonard Bernstein, young people's orchestra in which he would talk to the audience, which was made up of children and their parents. And described to them what was happening in the music before he actually played it. But you were told you kept getting rejected from conducting programs because you were told ever since you were a child that women aren't conductors. So let's start there. When you were a child, did anyone ever explain why women aren't conductors? I received some conflicting information on this. So after I, my dad took me to see Bernstein conduct and I was so I was so overwhelmed and enamored and taken back by him, not just the conducting. I think the conducting was sort of the least of it. It was the way he spoke to us in the audience. He's enthusiasm for the music. The fact that he was jumping around and not getting yelled at, I really like that part too. For me, classical music was already a little bit a little bit too rural oriented. But I said to my dad, I want to be the conductor. Look, look at what a great time this guy is having. And my dad said, absolutely. Wonderful. And then I went and told my violin teacher who I was studying with at Juilliard pre college. And she explained to me that, look, conductors are older, and you know I thought to myself, okay, well, I know that that'll change. And she said, and girls don't do that. Or maybe she said girls can't do that. Yeah, it was even more deadly, I think girls can't do that. And I never heard a phrase like that. You know, it never occurred to me that there was something that girls couldn't do. And I went home that night and I told my parents, and my mother was so mad. She was hopping mad. My mother said, you can do anything you want to do. You can be anything you want to be. That's ridiculous. We should sue them. My mother was like crazy. And my father, I think he must have gone out that afternoon and he came back because when I came down for breakfast the next morning, there was a long wooden box at my place. And I opened it up and he had filled it with batons. And so from my parents, I got the message, you can do,.

"In James Lee the third's a different soldier's tale. And the movement we heard was called, I must survive. One of the things I associate you with is championing the work of contemporary composers. And what we just heard is an example of that. And I'm wondering if that is part of how you see your place in the world as this groundbreaking woman conductor, or do you feel like you're especially attuned to other people who are being marginalized who you want to bring to a bigger audience and take them out of the margins? Oh, you know, I don't really think about it in those terms, but now that you're mentioning it, I suppose that is part of my sense of purpose. I love working with living composers because it brings me closer to the creative process. I'm not the creator. I'm always the recreator. So I'm extremely respectful and always in awe of the composers. So working with living composers is a dream come true because I start to understand their inspiration, their motivation, the narrative behind their pieces. And of course, when I'm able to work with composers who haven't had the same opportunities, they are so hungry to be heard that it feels incredibly rewarding. You're still the only woman who has been the conductor of a major American orchestra. Women have made breakthroughs in so many different professions over the years. Why has it been so slow for conductors? Well, I have to I have to jump in here because there has been a recent appointment just within the last couple months of my dear friend Natalie stutzman, French conductor, who will now the Atlanta symphony orchestra. So at least there is now a woman in the top 25 orchestras. There will still be no American now in the top. But I'm really thrilled that she was just recently appointed, but I think it almost highlights the fact that progress is very slow. And sporadic and there doesn't seem to be a real progression to the top in terms of this industry, which is something I hope we can see change in the next decade or so. In the documentary, there are scenes of you mentoring young conductors and teaching them how to do it. And one of those when you're mentoring a young woman, you're talking about her gestures can be interpreted gestures at the podium, can be interpreted differently, whether that same gesture is being done by a man or by a woman. And the example you give is if you're holding the baton with your pinky raised and you're a woman that will be seen one way, but if your man holding the baton in your pink is raised, that will be seen another. Would you elaborate on that? Well, I mean, it's fascinating to think about because everything we do is conductors is about body language. And body language is interpreted differently when it comes from a woman or from a man that the same action, the same gesture. I mean, just think about it when you, when you shake someone's hand and you shake a woman's hand in the handshake, it's very firm. Maybe a little too firm, you know? There's a certain impression one has. And then if you shake a man's hand and his handshake is firm, you know, it's a completely different experience. And so what I was trying to get across to the student I was working with was that we need to have a constant awareness of what we're doing so that we can almost degenerate if that's a word what we're doing and make it only about the music because a gesture like that which is kind of frilly would be seen as that weak maybe a little bit submissive if a woman does it. If a man does it, it probably will be interpreted as being sensitive. And this is just the world we happen to live in. I don't really I don't ascribe too much judgment. I'm just trying to deal with the world the real world and how to express the music gesturally so that there is no gender association with it. It's only about the music. But as women we have to think about that. There's also a moment where we're telling one of the women who you're mentoring, if you want a passage to sound really kind of strong, you can make a fist to show that. Are there certain gestures that women are less accustomed to making? That you have to kind of encourage them to make, that it's okay to do that. Oh, that's a great question. I can only speak from my personal growth of my development. I found that being being demanding and getting a big sound from the orchestra, that was my biggest challenge when I was starting out. And what would happen for me was that I would go for it, and then I would sort of back away apologetically. Because, you know, I didn't want to hurt anyone. I mean, not that you're actually even touching anyone, but there was a tendency to say, oh, sorry, sorry. Are you okay? Everybody all right? That's my nature. But I do see that in many other women that I work with. To stand up and kind of take no prisoners and just be there and be demanding an unapologetic about it. This is something that's hard to do in life, period. But it's especially hard to do as a conductor. So why don't we hear something really rousing? And this is the finale of brahms second symphony in your conducting the London philharmonic orchestra. Can you talk about if you remember what you were doing when you were conducting this in terms of your gestures, your physicality, trying to help evoke this rousing finale? Oh, sure. I mean, first of all, working with this fantastic orchestra recording all the brahms symphonies was a dream come true. But this finale is it's filled with joy and power and possibility and I can remember just letting.

"That's my guest Marin ossoff conducting the orchestra de Paris in the Ukrainian national anthem. You are the conductor now of the Vienna radio symphony orchestra. And I'm wondering if the members of that orchestra are very concerned about the possibility of a wider war in Europe. Oh, it's a huge concern. I was just in Vienna, these last two weeks and the conflict is close. The border is just a hundred kilometers. It's not far at all. And many of my musicians in the orchestra were taking in refugees and trying to open their homes and are trying to get supplies there. So I felt that everybody, everybody's deeply engaged deeply worried, so with the Vienna radio symphony orchestra, you recorded a piece called a different soldier's tale, and I think this might fit the moment too. Can you tell us about this piece and then we'll hear an excerpt of it. Yes, absolutely. Well, this is, this is from a CD of all music by James Lee, the third. James is a black composer living currently in the Baltimore area and D.C. area. And this is a piece that was inspired of course there's the very famous soldier's tale by stravinsky, at least star du soldat. And this piece, James piece, was inspired by war stories, told to him by his grandfather, and I think as an African American soldier, fighting for freedom, had a different significance to begin with. And then the whole experience of bonding with his fellow soldiers, but also feeling on the outside of what was going on. Well, let's hear an excerpt of the movement called, I must survive.

"This is fresh air. I'm Terry gross. Here's some of the things that were said about my guest Marin alsap early in her career when she fought to be accepted as a conductor. These are quotes from fellow conductors who found it too much of a stretch to take a female conductor seriously. Here goes. A sweet girl on the podium can make one's thoughts drift towards something else. For me, seeing a woman at the podium, it's not my cup of tea. This quote gets right to the point. I don't really like women conductors. ASAP became the first woman to lead a major American orchestra in 2007 when she became the music director of the Baltimore symphony orchestra, a position she held for 14 years. There were other firsts, including first woman to be the principal conductor of the Bournemouth symphony orchestra in England, and the São Paulo state symphony orchestra in Brazil, and the first and only conductor to receive a Macarthur fellowship, the so called genius award. Her mentor was Leonard Bernstein, and like Bernstein, her passion for music is wide ranging from the standard repertoire to symphonic jazz compositions, film scores, and contemporary works. She's currently the principal conductor of the OR F Vienna radio symphony orchestra, making her the first woman to ever lead a Viennese orchestra. She's the subject of the new documentary the conductor. It's streaming on the PBS website and on several other streaming platforms. Marin ALF welcome back to fresh air it's been too long. Congratulations on this new documentary. It's terrific. Oh, thanks so much. I want to start on a very sober note. And I should mention that we're recording this on March 22nd. And we're running it later than that. And you and I don't know what will have happened in Ukraine in the interim. But I want to start with a performance that you conducted of the Ukrainian anthem with the orchestra de Paris. And I believe early March, what would you say about this piece of musically? You know, I think anthems are strange beasts in a way because they're not necessarily reflective of the culture, from which they emanate, but they have a certain nobility. And I think this is rather the sensibility about it is rather somber, nobility. And I think as far as anthems go, it's quite engaging. And of course, emotionally performing this in that moment was extremely moving. And the whole audience immediately stood up and the orchestra remained standing and one of the musicians said a few words before we played and I think every concert I've done since then we've tried to include some kind of reference to the crisis that's occurring in Ukraine. So here's my guest Marin Al SAP conducting the orchestra.

What Makes Entrepreneurs Unique?

They work in some salaried field. They're paid by the hour or by biweekly or monthly, but they don't live the entrepreneur's life, of course, raising the question of what is an entrepreneur's life, what makes it different.

And one reason said to me, I bet I can do what that guy does. And I remember that kind of struck me because I can see why raising him was thinking that, raisin was an economist, so he was familiar with the world of business. In fact, in other words, this wasn't some like sociologist or Professor of romance languages. You know, I think I could run Amazon. No, this was a guy who actually had credentials in the economic field. And yet that question kind of nagged me of course I didn't say anything at the time. I just sort of nodded, but I was thinking to myself, can he? I mean, is it really the case that an academic who deals with economics could do what an entrepreneur does?

Harriet Tubman, the Ultimate Outdoorswoman

Growing up how she led slaves to freedom on the underground railroad but there was a lot more to her than what you probably remember from history class.

We don't often talk about. Harriet tubman in that light. Or if we do. It's kind of cautionary tale. Her experiences in the outdoors must have been so awful. So why would any sane black person wanna go into the wilderness voluntarily it feeds into the narrative. We often hear that african americans are not outdoorsy. But what if there's more to the story. What was harry. Its relationship with nature. How does that shape. The way african americans with the outdoors today and how might a closer look at harriet. Offer a new perspective on who belongs outdoors victoria. Marin has the story so this story was inspired by a podcast called following. Harriet which is about harriet. Tubman the show pulls back the curtain on harry. It's life giving listeners. A deeper context to her story. A story that i think is more layered and probably more relatable than many people realize most of us enter. Harriet tubman is life when she was in her thirties forties fifties and often times. We don't sort of think about how she came to be. Harriet people of my generation people who grew up in the nineteen seventies. We first met harriet in a photo in the corner of a textbook. She looked old. Her skin was stretched tight on her face. Her mouth was pinched. Her head was wrapped in a dark. Kerchief
We Study Billionaires - The Investors Podcast
CPI Rises 4.2% Over the Last Year
"Welcome to the investors podcast. I'm your host trae lockerbie and today. I'm super excited to welcome back to the show. Fan favourite merrin tusa and always a pleasure. Thanks for coming on the show. That's my pleasure. So one of the reasons. We love having on merrin is that there's always just a wealth of knowledge that you bring to the table and it's always such a wide ranging discussion and today's no different. There's a lot to cover. And i want to go ahead and dig right in one of the most interesting headlines. I think we've seen recently is the. Us bureau of labor statistics releasing some new cpi numbers and the is risen. Four point two percent over the last year so given your knowledge and the gold and silver mark is. I just wanted to take the opportunity to ask you about what your stance on those metals looks like right now and if you've been expecting maybe better performance out of them lately as my subscribers know when you have such a lockdown in so much pent up demand you look what's going on with copper lumbers so many sectors or hitting it and people what about gold and silver. I remind everyone that eighteen hundred dollar gold is a phenomenal price. Or me and the company that i'm heavily invested in and i get it. People want the to handle as four handle. Cpi came to thousands better than eighteen. Hundred i agree but when you're all in sustaining cost is eight nine hundred and you know you have a one hundred percent margins. That's a pretty good business to be in so yes. The investors want. Bitcoin like returns. They want that action but mining is the remember. Gold is the oldest currency in the world so moves a lot slower and it's a much more global. There's a hundred eighty six minds with over for example with over two million ounces. It's everywhere and it's a big business osama silver silver nod as much of a currency metal. Like gold is because over half is used for australia. Uses has got one foot in the industrial sector and one foot in the precious metal. So you would expect silver to be doing better than it is
Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood
Investors Are Throwing Money at mRNA Technologies
"We've been talking about all. The potential for 'em are innate. Technology means virus detection for all kinds of diseases. Now let's talk about the money because the rush is on to invest in marin a and the whole field of synthetic biology which approaches the body in natural systems as programmable platforms like computers however. The history of silicon valley and medical tech is mixed. You remember theranos and just last week. The founders of a hot biotech firm called you buy ohm were charged with fraud in a similar fashion. John chambers is the founder of syn bio beta a network for entrepreneurs engineers and investors interested in synthetic biology. He says billions of dollars are flowing into the field. Now what you're seeing is a new generation of investors and entrepreneurs coming in who are looking at a whole new set of tools around reading writing and editing of dna and designing and building and testing of biological systems. So you've got to look at the potential for these technologies to do a lot of good in the world not just in healthcare or quantified self or in this case irony vaccines but also for climate change for food production for chemicals and materials. So i think with any technology that the power to do good. And there's a powder do bad but i think with this technology the power to do good in so many different parts of the lives is just huge.

Covid vaccine: PM to have AstraZeneca jab as he urges public to do the same
"When johnson talks about the uk's world-beating response to covid nineteen vaccine pogrom passes muster. It's been an unqualified success or one of the reasons. His conservative party are so far ahead in the polls over twenty five million brits have received their job so fall but the government unexpectedly announced show fall in the number of vaccines delivered in april juice. Supply issues and the debate has a geopolitical angle. To given the you struggling with its own vaccine rollout slovan the line. The european commission president on the block might even consider export controls. All options are on the table. We are in the crisis of the century. And i'm not ruling out any anything for now because we have to make sure that europeans are vaccinated as soon as possible so sarah. Let's begin with the overall state of the uk's vaccine pogrom based on what was set out in december. It's pretty much all going to plan fairly high levels of takeover ninety four percent i believe and the government is insisting that all over fifty will have had their first job by the middle of april. So what's the problem. Well a week ago we would have said. This was indeed the most Astonishingly amyloid success and a sign of vessel. Buoyant moved around it. Was that the with some very clear briefing to a couple of the saturday newspapers suggesting that we were actually going to move to the over forty's much sooner than expected so it was a bit of a jolt to find out on wednesday that in fact. Nhs people involved in the program had been told that they must hold booking any new appointments throughout april because the been a sudden very significant reduction in the supplies available so that really has put the first serious dent in the narrative which right from december the eight. I think it was the day. That william shakespeare became one of the first two vaccine as now suddenly. The government is in the unaccustomed position of having to explain what's happening and explain why some of the public expectations that they'd raised so hard may not be met to be fair to the government. They still absolutely insisting they're on track with the two big dates that they've set for this program that all over fifty should be vaccinated by the middle of april. And all adult britons. Who wants a job will have had it at the end of july. But there's no question that it's been a difficult political management problem for them this week and very much not the position that they'd hoped to be in the club. Let's have a look at why this might be happening and seven. I spent a lot of this week speaking to people. Whitehall trying to figure out exactly what was going on behind the scenes with matt. Hancock gave us a of clarity in the house of commons and the government is pinning own production issues. The first one is this batch of one point seven million jobs that we sent back for testing and the second thing is the supply from the soham institute of india which again the governor's put down to supply issues but others are saying that actions being blocked by modi's government from shipping out to the uk. Exactly it is pretty opaque what's happening. There are two elements. Here that can hold up. Supplies one is the genuinely technical difficulties in producing a complex biological process. I mean it's not straightforward zanu vaccine and a lot of the manufacturing sites haven't made this sort of marin a vaccine before it scale factor. You could say none of them have because this is the first one. That's the fiso won. The astra zeneca at novartis vaccine is also level to a complicated process. So there are technical supply issues and then there at the political ones. You alluded to and i don't know whether the serum institute of india supply has been blocked for political reasons because india was having rather a good downturn in covert cases. But that's turning up again. Unfortunately and there are feelings. That indian government wanted to have it at home. This is so. I think if we look at the context of this a lot of it is actually not that much of a serious problem that we were crunching the numbers this week and april is a significant moment in the vaccine program for the uk. Because yes they were vaccinated all over fifty which according to people like christie chief medical officer of england which uses ninety nine percents of deaths on messages the pressure on the nhc s. But eneko you have to install the second jobs. Really the po- gum began to scale up towards the end of january and eleven week window. The nhl is set between the first and second doses. That really kicks in april and but hancock said this week that really still going to be delivering about fourteen million jobs throughout april which is low though. It's been in march but it's still a pretty high number so it's probably good to keep it in context with feels really what's gone wrong. Here is expectations that the rogue briefing about forty s really feels like delivers come off the bush tourism bush. Johnson's tried to restrain for much of twenty twenty. One yes and i think some. Nhs officials were less than delighted about that huge raising expectations last weekend. In a way. I think this was always going to be a difficult point for the program. It was absolutely predictable that at the point at which second doses to scale up there was going to be a deep in first doses. So it's perhaps unfortunate that there wasn't more subtle public preparation. You're absolutely right international standards even in april. We're still going to be doing more. Vaccinations than many of our counterparts. So it's particularly unfortunate wasn't better preparation. Because i think in the minds of a lot of britain's the will now be a sense of this program isn't doing well it's stumbled. It didn't have to be this way that it could have been very differently presented. And after all as i said the government is still on track to meet those two deadlines that it says now clive. We need to put this in the context of europe as well and we heard from s. the von d'alene at the top. That and you still really struggling with its vaccine vo loud but the most baffling things. She's seen this week. Is the story about the astra zeneca job and how effective or side effects. That may have in this concern. Over blood clots we heard from the ama from the nhra in the uk from the world health organization. All saying there are no concerns about blood. Clots and ashes annika vaccine yet at didn't stop lawson countries from halting giving out the doses. It's a very complicated picture on side effects. At least the spotlight turned away from efficacy. Before countries in continental europe were worrying that the astrazeneca vaccine wouldn't work well enough to older people. I think the efficacy questions have more or less be answered now. The spotlight is on whether they're adverse side effects and a few of those have been discovered there. These two different sorts of blood disorders do with abnormal clotting thrombosis that have been detected in people who just been vaccinated in norway in germany elsewhere on continental europe. The numbers are tiny. I would say fewer than twenty around the continent. Investigation is still continuing. There's no proven link with the vaccine. But a lot of vaccine knowledge ists the might be a link. But that is no reason to stop the vaccination program when it's saving tens of thousands of lives probably and people have said that just by halting for a few days the astrazeneca vaccination and continental europe. This week until the european medicines agency said it was okay that would have cost lives. It loves cost lives directly because people weren't getting vaccinated and it also probably unfortunately of cost lives indirectly because all the publicity about ad side effects will just undermined confidence in the vaccine
Fallout of Texas winter blast
"Good evening. Thank you for joining us. The governor of sexist apologizing and promising answers after a deadly winter storm the deep freeze. Just the start of an ongoing nightmare for residents now. Struggling with shattered pipes in skyrocketing energy. Bill here's abc's tripled. I can't imagine what it's like for you to see it like this is terrible. I've never thinking house. This brianna bolden tells me she could smell the soap rotting wood from outside the front door of her grandmother's house before walking into this is pictures and the memories. They captured all underwater. And this is actually my big lama right here. This is all and that's the past those wife for half a century. Her grandparents filled this home with children and grandchildren home cooked meals. Tiny reminders of a family growing together is a lot of memories at this house. But now this house like so many in texas has been gutted. Helplessly flooded by first hypes last week's historic winter storm on your couch look. The damage is just a fraction of the devastation. in texas. that killed thirty. Two people will take months or years and billions of dollars to clean up. So how did it go so wrong so quickly. Texas has more than enough generating capacity to handle itself. It was just the state of affairs of that equipment and the state of affairs of the management of that equipment. The causes from texas is the only state in the continental us with an independent grid meaning. It does not connect to any other states power source. When that merciless winter weather hid in one of the warmest regions of the country. People crank up their heaters and the energy demand surged when that system shut down. There was nowhere to turn for power. There is no place for the texas grid to go there. Couple small lines extension cords to the east in the west. But that's not enough really to to pick up. A forty percent drop in texas generation and the result was more than three million texas residents in the dark and cold at one point leading many to take drastic measures for running dangerously low on one. So now what we've been doing. All day is actually coming outside getting snow putting it are pods and heaving on our propane grill. Then hypes began to freeze and burst shutting down water treatment plants across the state inning. Almost fifteen million texans would have to toil their water of four. It was safe to drink daily block water. We don't even have the electric reliability council of texas or bur. Kat had long been warned. Its infrastructure was vulnerable to freezing temperatures the state legislature held hearings on this exact issue in twenty eleven. The last time the state experienced major freeze there were numerous hearings hundreds of pages of recommendations but they were all made voluntarily. Nobody actually change the incentives so that the generators would have a financial reason food to weather. Is this week. Several urquhot born members resigned in the wake of this disaster today in virtual urquhot board of directors meeting. The chairwoman acknowledged the pain and suffering of texans her resignation effective after the meeting ended. All of our hearts go out to all of you with head to go without electricity. Heat water not attending and food during frigid temperatures and continue to face the tragic consequences in some cases. The loss of a loved one state leaders have promised an investigation into urquhot handling of the crisis and members of both parties and the governor of rowing to make sure texans are on the hook for those astronomical electric bills at a time when essential services were needed. The most the system broke. You deserve answers. You will get those answers but people brianna bolden are in need of far more immediate solutions. She's facing mounting hardships. Having recently lost her father and grandfather. It sounds like your grandmother doesn't have home insurance right now. She don't she couldn't afford it anymore. Every generation been through this. Is papa really worked hard for this. I'm sorry statewide. There is so much damage from burst. Pipes plumbers can't keep up see the water. We have another one right here. Everardo omega of a plumbing. In houston says he's crews have been working around the clock just as bad. I mean there's necas mad and they're receiving more calls than they can answer this heartbreaking the tell somebody. uk make we broke down here. Twenty five hours plummer andrew mitchell in his family driving all the way from new jersey with a car full of equipment in arts in short supply here for just going to see what we can do to help out texas residents and also converging in texas to help out the cajun navy civilian volunteers known for using their big trucks. Kamal boats for rescues during major storms like hurricane harvey in twenty seventeen. We talked with a lot of people around here who've been they were impacted by hurricane harvey. I dealing with this. A lot of people think that this is worse than a hurricane's coming in we have more. We know what's going to happen with this disaster. We did not know what was coming. Community was not prepared. No one knew what was coming riley at this is marin mckim. She spent the last decade doing aid work in africa. When disaster struck home she was one of the first on the front lines. The cajun navy has gotten quite good quickly setting up distribution sites like this one but with so many people impacted. What's perhaps most useful is their platform and their connections. Cajun navy crowd sources disasters and cajun navias known so once we find the need we start using the social media platform and we put the word out there and people want to help on this day. They're delivering to katy texas home to just over twenty thousand with some areas still under a boil. Water notice
Daily Coronavirus Update
Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine deemed "safe and effective" by the FDA
"And johnson. It's been shown that they're vaccine is effective at preventing hospitalizations and severe effects of covid. Nineteen this from scientists at the fda we're seeing about. I think it's sixty six percent effective when it comes to moderate to severe cases of covid nineteen so matthew. Tell a little bit more about what we're hearing with. His johnson and johnson vaccine right so what happened. Is that johnson. Johnson released data about a month ago. You know press release but the process for evaluating these vaccines is that they go through the fda and the fda really unique in the world independently looks at the data and re analyzes the data that the company produces and its own report and then hold a public meeting which will be happening friday and so the documents before the public meeting came out and they had some good news both some really clear data on hospitalizations and a general sense of approval from the fda researchers. Sometimes they're not as positive so it looks like this may be another option now. The big plus is on. This is one. It's a one shot dose. So you don't have to go back for a second jab in the arm and also doesn't need to be kept frozen like the pfizer derna vaccines do so shipping and handling of all of this will be a lot easier much easier to transport and that's a big advantage. It does not look like we're gonna have a huge amount of supply the start off with so it doesn't dramatically change how fast we're going to be any shots into people's arms but for a lot of people i think in a lot of experts i talked. You think this'll be a great option. It's one and done. I think some of the numbers. I saw the might have about four. That are produced right now. Ready to send out so it gets approved. They can get those out really quick but it wouldn't be until april possibly where they can really ramp up production to start distributing that right and will also be getting over that where they're hundreds of millions of doses of the two vaccines have the madonna and fayza biontech vaccines. That are expected to arrive in the us by july. So there's gonna be a lot more vaccine available. The jj supply will ramp up and we'll be getting more of those other two vaccines that leaves. There's a vaccine coming from nova vacs. We don't really know about how much will getting the early results issued press. Release again good and we're waiting for. Us results on the astra zeneca vaccine. Now some good news. With his johnson and johnson one is its effectiveness against these variants. That we've been hearing a lot about so it fared better than expected when it comes to those. I the way to interpret. That is we'd seen some results and the new results that they showed today look a bit better than what we'd seen in terms of variants. There's still does seem to be decreased. Efficacy against the south africa variant. Three five. Which is really the one that we're all worried about but it did look better than what we've seen previously and what j. j. has said it seems like with those variants. This vaccine is still preventing severe disease and hospitalization. Which are the key things. We've always wanted from vaccine here. The idea that you'd prevent a symptomatic infection or mild cases kind of bonus compared to just making sure that people end up in the hospital hospitalizations numbers were good on that front. What did we see when it comes to side effects. I saw that there were a few unexpected side effects. Although these are very rare you know but The expecting side effects the kind of pain in the arm the headache fatigue. That's pretty much in line with the other two vaccines. We have that right now. There were some rare events that occurred more often in the vaccine in the placebo group. Keeping in mind that forty thousand people were in this trial. There were fifteen serious blood clots including some. Dvd's in that exciting compared to ten in the placebo group. That's something the fda plans to monitor there was also some rini ears in the vaccine group and not in the placebo group. So that's kind of an odd one that will wanna watch again. This is really a prelude to friday win. Some of the top experts in the world are going to gather on zoom call and go over these data that the fda assembled we'll be live blogging that stat. That's when we really find out a lot about any medical product. It's it's one of the amazing things. The fda does now an interesting thing in all of this so public health officials might have a messaging problem when it comes to pumping the johnson and johnson. One out when we're seeing guys like pfizer maderna's say that their vaccine is ninety five percent effective against corona virus. Just listening to numbers right. This says sixty six percent. So what are they going to have a challenge in getting people to want to take this one over the other or you know how how to work out. It's really important to realize that particularly between those three vaccines. The getting vaccine is much better than not getting a vaccine. The change vaccine may be on par after a second dose and that study is being done but unlike visor during the second dose is going to be months after the first and then also slows down the study. She gotta wait right for people to get their second dose. So we're not expecting those data until kinda summerish but the big thing is for a lot of people. There was also the appeal of a single dose here. And i don't think we should understate that. And the effect on severe disease is big so the problem is gonna be the in the initial rollout. You really want people to take whatever vaccine. They're giving because being vaccinated is so much better than not being vaccinated. And that is part of the path to get in the world back to normal and public health. Authorities are absolutely going to have to articulate that now again because there's not going to be that much supply of this initially. They're going to have time for a learning curve right now. the demand for vaccines clearly outstrips supply. That's why you're hearing so many stories of people desperately logging on trying to get vaccine. What scott gottlieb used to run. The fda has raised the issue of you know. We're we're going to reach a point where the people who wanna get vaccinated we'll have been vaccinated and we're still going to need to vaccinate more people and that's when convincing people who are less sure to take vaccine in to take the vaccine that's available is going to become more of an issue last question briefly pfizer moderna vaccines are based on 'em a. What kind of platform is the johnson and johnson. When using this like theatrics annika vaccine is called an ad no virus which is a kind of virus that is used to the same kind of ideas marin a the instead of traditional vaccines were you inject the protein that your immune system sees and then learn to recognize an attack. These sneak something into your body that makes a lot of proteins. You make a lot more protein and then the body recognizes that an attack it in this case they're using this virus which is kind of a cold virus to sneak some genetic material in and that makes the spike protein from the sars virus which your body then learns to recognize and thereby has antibodies that attack the virus
