Who really killed Blockbuster Video?

"I'm Peter Kafka and I'm Ronnie. Mola and this is landed the giants. The net flicks effect a podcast on Netflix's disrupted. Hollywood change the way we watch TV and movies. And how it should have been squashed by giant competitor, but ended up turning the tables and killing the video store. Okay Peter. Let's go back in time long. Before we had netflixing chill, we had blockbuster nights. Remember this tonight. Make a blockbuster. In the nineties and early outs, blockbuster was the world's largest video rental chain. It was a huge part of American culture at its peak, it was bringing in six billion dollars a year in revenue and had more than nine thousand stores around the globe. It was the place to rent movies it was. Social place like teens would meet their. You know people you know because that was one of the few things that you could always do as a high school student. Was You know you could get together with your friends and rent a movie and go to the cool, parents, house, and watch it where there's a copy of the wiz that I would like hide in a corner at blockbuster because I always wanted to be there when I come back for, and we would go in there her car then go into blockbuster and pick out a movie, and then we get a little treat you know I don't know. We pick two to three movies scary WanNa funny one and then in action. Nobody has the movie I want I. Even Video Blockbuster probably hasn't I mean? We have over ten thousand videos? Five six o'clock on a Friday night. Phones are ringing off the hook. It's never what do you have? That's good. It's always what you have. That's new that last voices Jason Bailey nowadays. He writes about movies for places like vulture in the New York Times, but years ago, he used to work at a bunch of video stores, including blockbuster, which he says wasn't as great as we might remember. I have much more nostalgic for the video store. Then I do for blockbuster in particular which really in a lot of ways. Ways killed the video store, flattening it into the sort of McDonald's version of the video store, right? That's what I remember about. Blockbuster killed my local video store replaced with blockbuster, which I did not like blockbusters were everywhere, and everyone rented from there, but that didn't mean it was a great customer experience, one of the big things that you always hear people who who don't remember blockbuster through a Golden Glove nostalgia talk about where the late fees or as they tried to rebrand them additional day fees or additional rental fees. They were outrageous. Boxer made a ton of money on late visas or additional day fees running. At one point late fees made up seventy percent of blockbuster prophet, and along with this highly fees, there are a long list of other problems limited new releases, long lines, shitty customer service all which is lousy for customers, which also made it lousy for employees. I got cursed out a fair amount. Again for you know just doing what I was told to do by corporate, but yes I would, I would be told that you know that. We were monsters that we were bloodsuckers. I had that thing back on time I saw you. You take it out of the box I was like I got called out like that I had people tell me I saw you in here when I dropped it off. You tell me you didn't check it in on time. I'm not paying that if it got heated, but this is all factored into blockbusters business model. The company even had a term for it managed. Dissatisfaction managed to satisfaction is a term that John Antioch. Oh the CEO Blockbuster explained to me, and that is is long as you give a consumer and. And of what they want. They will ignore the fact that they're not always getting what they want. This is unique heating. She's a journalist who covered enough for Reuters she also wrote a book and made a documentary about Netflix's history blockbuster understood that only twenty percent of customers who came in would get the movie that they wanted, and they would have to get something else the other eighty percent of the time. They weren't happy, but they weren't horribly angry. Managed dissatisfaction is one of the great corporate euphemisms for screw you give. Give us your money. You are ever going to hear and if you can't remember what it was like to go to. Blockbuster occurred analogy. Be Like an airplane. You WanNa. Airplanes are like it sucks every way, and if you want to improve it in any way, you have to pay additional fees for everything that is blockbuster in a nutshell in the nineties, yeah, customers felt trapped, and with all the smaller mom and pop stores being squeezed out. They didn't really have a better alternative, and then all of a sudden they did. Again you've gotta remember. That netflix emerged in the late nineties when the Internet still felt pretty new. Amazon was just becoming release accessible selling books online. They're doing it cheaper than the competition and they didn't have to operate stores, so Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph to tech guys in the bay area are surveying the landscape and they thought hey, we could be the Amazon of something else. There's a better way to rent movies as many as you want. Go to Netflix DOT COM. COM Bake a list of the movies you want to see and about one business day you'll get three. DVD's kept him as long as you want. Without late fees DVD's had just come out. And suddenly there was this new way to watch movies that didn't involve these bulky VHS tapes. DVD's were smaller, more durable, and you could ship them for price of a postage stamp. So? Hastings Randolph thought. Hey, we could be them on of movies. This may seem obvious now, but at the time this was a big deal. Suddenly instead of having to go to the store and deal the crummy customer experience, he could stay home. You can hit a button and someone somewhere sent you the dvd you wanted instead of the one you had to settle. for which Netflix customers loved by the way they tended to order? The kind of movies at blockbuster didn't feature or even carry it all they had all the indie movies and older movies and blockbuster was focused on what was new.

"In McDonald's history. McDonald's executive sat across the table from the members of operation. Black Unity Near. Stoke stood by to facilitate. Facilitate people were armed. People brought guns to this meeting in case got to explosives, but this point Cleveland's white franchise owners wanted out their businesses were being crushed by the boycott, and they were done with being pulled into contentious civil rights disputes for McDonald's. However, it wasn't so easy. The company knew how it would look to give in to threats and intimidation and someone like a hill in particular, plus he was making demands that could set a precedent for McDonald's to. To have a role in local communities that it just didn't one operation black unity demands. We'd get to pick the FRANCHISEES. We get a fee for our I. Guess Search Firm Capacities. We get a pool. We get a card. We get money invested in a community trust for us a McDonald's. No, no, no on every point there stokes was caught in the middle, his white Democratic primary opponent was using the protest as a scare tactic asking what local business would be. Be Next to fall victim to the threats of black activism, if stokes wanted to live up to his promise of unity and get reelected. He had to get this settled. Meanwhile, members of Operation Black Unity turned on Hill, accusing him of extortion he'll lost control of the movement he had started now. All of this posturing and back, and forth is happening in the press as well as the national newspapers pick up the strange story of McDonald's boycott and Carl Stokes McDonald's. McDonald's was keeping an option warm. This entire time turns out behind the scenes. McDonald's and mayor stokes had been in talks with another community group one that would take over the restaurants that white franchise owners were giving up and that this group would be responsible for any community development projects like swimming pools parks that meant McDonald's was off the hook. Oh and it never have to negotiate with David Hill ever again. The day before mayor stokes primary election. He arranged in. In. Agreement with McDonald's and operation black unity to end the boycott stokes was reelected, and while hill did not get control of the restaurants. They were being run by members of the black community. I guess the question is. How do we measure success? In this situation? The boycott did expose black economic power in Cleveland in a time where African Americans were for the majority living in poverty. It did show that there was a difference having a black mayor, even though it. It did not solve all the problems. The Cleveland Boycott was covered in papers across the country, and the eventual agreement demonstrated to activate that local black communities could have a voice in negotiating with an international corporation about how it operates in their neighborhoods. Even for that brief moment. They really did impact. McDonald's and so I think the takeaway from those experiences were then deployed in different cities as they were challenging. What did it mean for McDonald's to be such a presence? In the years after Cleveland more and more black entrepreneurs around the country took over existing McDonald's and open new ones for fifty years. They've tested. If black capitalism can improve the lives of black, Americans in their communities wasn't enough. That's when we come back. We're back. In nineteen, sixty nine Cleveland's black entrepreneurs got what they wanted. Ownership of local McDonald's franchises and marked a change in how the company would operate in black communities for years to come. Black capitalist hoped that McDonald's restaurants could help franchisees in several ways i. they'd let them become business owners next with the support of McDonald's businesses would become profitable, and then with that money, black franchisees could invest in their communities and thereby help other black people. It hasn't been that simple from your reporting and talking to people. How are black franchisees feeling about McDonald's corporate? I spoke with a lot of former franchisees. Who? Especially have very mixed and more negative feelings where they feel like they've been forced out. Basically that McDonald's put them in a situation where they could not win, they could not continue to save the company. K Taylor is a senior correspondent covering restaurants and retail for business insider. At the end of last year, she reported that many black franchisees were making significantly less than their white counterparts. She also found that in the last few years, the number of black-owned McDonald's has been falling out of the seventeen hundred people who own McDonald's restaurants fewer than two, hundred or black. That's down from over three hundred in two thousand seven people have been aware of. Of these issues for decades, and from Dr it kind of goes, through ebbs and flows where they feel that McDonald's is listening to them making some changes and then periods where they feel like McDonald's is ignoring the concerns. This goes all the way back to the nineteen seventies and in response, lack franchisees created a group to advocate on their behalf. The National Black McDonald's operators association over the years. Some of them have accused McDonald's of discrimination. More recently black franchisees have told Kate that they've faced obstacles on several fronts. I mean restaurants were not as financially accessible as they'd hoped for more than a million dollars to just open one location, so you have to be a millionaire several times over basically you are going to thrive in the McDonald's system at this point. Add to that in recent years. McDonald's corporate has demanded expensive tech upgrades and move towards a model where fewer franchisees own more restaurants. That's made it even harder for black. Americans to buy into the McDonald's system. Because African Americans in this country are less likely to have the generational wealth. They just aren't in the same position to. Invest millions of dollars as frequently as some white Franchisees have been in two thousand seventeen, the Federal Reserve released a report showing that on average black families net worth is fifteen percents that families. So getting a franchise has become more challenging, and that brings us to the second point that these restaurants would make black business owners money. Kate found that it's been difficult for them to make a prophet. Right McDonald's several told her that the company LTD which ones they're allowed to run and where they could open new restaurants. If you're in an area that is lower income, it can cost a lot more for security cost. So. That's something where you're paying more for security. You're paying more for insurance because of concerns related to that, and that just cuts into the bottom line. Current and former black franchisees told Kate Dave attempted to run restaurants in more affluent areas. One told her that working a corporate liaison he tried to help. A fellow Black Franchisee opened another store nearby. McDonald's basically told both franchisees that their new stories available. It just wasn't a possibility at that point. And then literally the same week McDonald's announced that there was going to be a white franchisee opening a store on the same street that the black Franchisee e had been trying to open the location on. CATES said that McDonald's declined to comment on this specific example being excluded from owning restaurants in higher income neighborhoods has financially hurt black franchisees to sum it up in the most basic way, black franchisees we're making about sixty eight thousand dollars less per store a month than the overall total or average franchisees overall that gap is more than double from what it was and twenty twelve win. Black Franchisees have spoken out about their concerns. Some told Kate. They've noticed strange corporate behavior like McDonald's employees showing up for unplanned inspections late on a Friday night once even Christmas Eve or getting written up for minor infractions like a torn piece of wallpaper and that could. Could lead to franchisees being penalized financially, or it could lead to them getting their stories takeaway mixed in with all of this fears that if black franchise owners are struggling financially, maybe even selling their restaurants, they won't invest in their local communities. Remember.

"It's like any other McDonald's spot across the country. There's a big building Golden Arches, and an American flag when Marsha chatwin began researching her book on McDonald's and Black America. She made a point to visit this one. One of the first things I saw was a flyer announcing the winner of a McDonald's worker scholarship this. This restaurant is a pillar in the community. It sponsors and mentoring program and works with boys and girls clubs, the local public library sports, programs and the zoo. It's a place where people gather in -tunities like Ferguson where you have a lot of for residents. Sometimes. McDonald's where people use the Internet so. It's the Wi Fi. It's where you can get the air conditioning. And in two thousand fourteen, this McDonald's was also in the eye of the storm. When Ferguson erupted in protests over the shooting of Michael Brown there is growing outrage tonight. After an unarmed African American teenager was shot and killed by police in the Saint, Louis suburb of Ferguson Missouri. If you think about all of the international activists communities that showed up at Ferguson Missouri they come to America and the place that is open and lively is the McDonald's people took refuge in that. McDonald's from the unrest surrounding them fires, gunshots, rubber, bullets and tear-gas styles. The windows broken into again. We saw a couple of other stores. Neighbors went there to watch the results of Michael Brown's autopsy. Protests are still milk from the fridge to. To treat their eyes after being teargassed, it was one of the few businesses that had the financial capacity to remain open during the uprisings and bounce back after it was targeted and I. Don't think it is a coincidence that it is owned and operated by African. American, that McDonald's was more than just a fast food restaurant. When reporters left, and people turn their attention away from Ferguson. It was and still. Is there serving its community? Chaos brought McDonald's into black communities, and it is in chaos that we are able to see the ways that the McDonald's in the black community Serbs far more purposes than giving people a place to eat. From business insider, this is brought to you by. Brands you know stories you don't I'm Charlie Herman McDonald's big MAC MAC only at. McDonald's is the largest restaurant company in the world it's business is served burgers and fries to millions of people, but what happens when a brand like McDonald's finds itself in the middle of a struggle over civil rights today across the country Americans are demanding solutions, racial injustice and inequality. Many corporations are trying to respond fifty years ago. Residents of Cleveland Ohio made similar demands and went head to head with McDonald's over its role in black communities today, the fight for the right to franchise could the Golden Arches be a golden ticket to economic equality. Stay with us. What are some of your earliest memories about McDonald's? Eight so much McDonald's as a kid I know. The end is a young adult I should say did to. Marsha chat and I grew up in the nineteen eighties her in Chicago me in Oakland. We both have these shared memories of the McDonald's Menus of our youth. They had hot mustard, which was way too sophisticated for my kid Palette. There was like a barbecue on I. Remember the McLean Deluxe came out, and it was supposed to be a lower fat burger. Right as a kid, who was a place for birthday, parties and cheap meals with friends I remember it's where I surprised my mom after I got my braces off after having him for nearly four long years of high school. Terrible in Chicago, Chandler Remembers One McDonald's downtown were all the decor was inspired by African American history. They would have historical portrait's or they would make sure that the. The liners on the trays had history facts I knew the black McDonald's operators who gave me awards for Black History? Month competitions that I was in I, remember hearing the operators on the local black radio stations talking about. Make sure you fill out your son says make sure you fell into vote, so these were individuals who were clearly identifiable as people who were doing more than just business. Chat is now professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University but those early memory stayed with her when she went on to write a book about how she puts it. McDonald's became black. It's called franchise. The Golden Arches Black America. She says that relationship really started during the civil rights movement and one year in particular, nineteen, sixty eight Martin. Luther King was shot and was killed tonight. After King's assassination, there were uprisings and protests in cities across the nation on rest in Kansas City. Missouri April the weekend at Ryan's on Tuesday. On Wednesday on Thursday on Friday more, the same communities were devastated by these protests and in the aftermath. McDonald's found it had a problem. Many white people had fled the city for the suburbs and a lot of McDonald's restaurants in urban areas were being abandoned by the white owners and employees. At the time, there had never been black McDonald's Franchisee. McDonald saw this as an opportunity to maintain their businesses in neighborhoods that were case in two were in African American communities by bringing in franchise owners, and allowing those right franchise owners business in the suburbs plus McDonald's the setup might help protect those restaurants. If there is any racial unrest in the future, the owner had an expectation plow upon him that he would keep relations good, and he would make people feel like that. McDonald's belong to them but in Cleveland. CLEVELAND, Ohio McDonald's face to more complicated situation it was the first major city in the country to have a black mayor. A man named Carl stokes here. He is in a video produced by the local news site. CLEVELAND DOT COM I. wanted to be mayor because I felt I understood some of the problems that afflict us in the central cities for many people in Cleveland White and black mayor. STOKES represented unity in an interview with a local TV anchor he. He knew the challenges that came with that. Growth Reaction Again. The in Brevard of minority groups articulated black minority to. Achieve early expression through participation in society. Compound Bhai Great. After King's death, mayor stokes and managed to prevent protests and Cleveland's black community, but that meant there wasn't white flight like in other cities, if the king uprisings were the impetus for a lot of white franchisees to leave black neighborhoods that didn't happen in Cleveland, and that mid McDonald's restaurants in the city's black neighborhoods were still owned and operated by white people that didn't sit well with some local black leaders in new someone getting rich, and they see that those dollars are being reinvested in their everyday lives in other cities block. Franchisee became local leaders, and some of the restaurants prophets towards community development. So in Cleveland one man started demanding the same opportunity. His name was honest, hilliard so earnest. Was a interesting guy. He had appeared on religious radio as Crawford Thomas. Profit Frank, Thomas of the first spiritual Christian Church of America Hilliard show aired on a station that pioneered radio which had already become an important force in black communities John. Gibson was a DJ in those days. He put it this way in an interview for Smithsonian Series Black.

Body cameras were supposed to make police accountable. Its backfired

"Protesters are demonstrating in hundreds of Cities Dominion interracial injustice and police brutality, but one of the things I was opposed to rain in the police. Cameras might actually end up encroaching on protesters privacy's. I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge. With me is seen at privacy expert, daily charge regular offloading. Alfred thanks for joining me. Hey, thanks for having me, Alfred. You've got a piece of looking at police. Body cameras in the concerns are now raising during these protests, but before we get to that. Let's back things up a bit. You talk about how body cameras with the police took off. So Body Cams really came into the police terminology around two, thousand, fourteen, twenty, fifteen, when there were protests over the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, where people were asking for the same things that they're asking for now six years ago when they were saying that we want more police accountability, we want more police transparency and they believe that body cameras would be technology to help solve that if we have a camera on police officers at all times, then there's more evidence when police are doing anything that they're not supposed to be doing more evidence of police misconduct no five years down the line. We've really seen that that hasn't really been the case. There's been studies that have shown that. There isn't really more police accountability just because technology is there and we're seeing now that you know. These protests are evidence of that that even though you know about half the police departments in the country have body cameras equipped, but they are not making the major changes that they were supposed to be doing. Let's dig into that on paper. You've got a video recording police are doing so theoretically. That's supposed to create some accountability. Why hasn't that happened I? Think a big problem is that the body cameras were? And people assumed automatically that they would only be used in a certain way, and from what we've seen you know the transparency side of it is not there so even though these body cameras are equipped. You know it doesn't really mean that they're always recording. We've seen that in Kentucky during the protests when police shot and killed David Makati during a protest in Louisville Kentucky This was the protests over the death of George Floyd according to reports, there were no police body cam footage of that and the police chief was actually fired over the body. Cam's not being turned on at this. This incident and we take it a step further down. And we and we take it a step further down, and we check and see okay. What what about the incidents? Where Body Cams are turned on while in those incidents, police will do almost everything they can to prevent this footage from getting released an you know there's been cases where people who have been shot by police officers have had to sue the Police Department of get that their own footage released to the public, and you know we see from the case of McDonald in Chicago where it took more than a year for police. Police to release footage of the seventeen year old, getting shot sixteen times by Chicago police officers, and that put it wasn't even released to the public until a journalist sued for it, and it took you more than a year after he was killed by police for that footage to even get out there. That's an interesting point you raise. The footage is meant to hold police accountable. So how are the police justifying not releasing the videos? The reason want so difficult for this footage to be released because police are the ones controlling it. It's these videos are ending up in their database as these videos. Videos are ending up at their whim and again it's also they're ones who control whether or not. The cameras turned on and that that's part of the big issue of it. So in one case the NYPD had sued not release any footage that it would violate state laws against releasing police records without a court order, so it's it's a lot of things I I've seen in other cases before where they've just argued. We don't have the bandwidth to release all this footage. Public records request because they have to comb through all this footage and then put it on a flash, drive or A. DVD or something like that to release to the public and I've seen police departments argue that you know we don't have the ability to do that right now. With all these requests that are coming in, let's talk about these protests. You make a point. That's a bit counterintuitive. The footage is post. Keep listening check, but they may actually be used against the protesters. Talk a little bit about that. So several cities like Baltimore New York and Seattle actually have policies against using body cameras at First Amendment events like protests. The reason why is because you don't want to be potentially identified or tracked after the fact and these body cameras can do a really good job of doing that, and that is now the privacy concern that comes with body cameras is that they're more being used. Used as tools of surveillance, and they are tools of accountability, so the argument right now is that we should have these body cameras turned on at protests, because of all these incidents of police brutality that we've seen against protestors, but it kind of hangs in the balance with this debate of while we also don't want these cameras to be used against us later down the line. Some cities like Seattle. I've actually turned around on their policy against no body cameras at protests and said if you are out of protest, you should turn it on. The mayor issued an emergency order on Monday about it, but privacy advocates are kind of pointing out that that might not be the way that you want to

Health Experts Warn Protests Could Set Off Second Wave Of Police Brutality

"Massive protests across the country have health officials concerned today airway, many of the nation's top medical experts are worried. These demonstrations could lead to a large second wave outbreak up police brutality from the onion and onion public radio. I'm Leslie Price. This is the topical. We've got the latest on each one of the many things you should currently be panicking about so stay with it. Well, it seems that worse could still be ahead of says health officials offered a grim outlook for the future today with a warning that protests currently roiling the nation could set off a second wave of police brutality for more I'm joined by OPR correspondent Marcy Hammond Marcy. Is this something we should be concerned about well? Leslie experts say there is cause for alarm here's deputy director and she'll get. We've seen massive person demonstrations across the country in the last several days, which is of course, a fertile breeding ground for excessive force, and what's worse, we believe that this second spike in police brutality. Deadlier than what we've already seen that those sound concerning no, can you give us a little more context? How did we find ourselves in this situation? Where did this police brutality come from? Well? Of course, some form of police brutality has been with US basically forever, but over centuries of exposure. The American public has largely become immune to it. However, this novel strain that we're seeing this year began with seemingly isolated appearances throughout the country over the last several months, and now boiled over into a full-blown epidemic. So what should we be on the lookout for if we think we may have been afflicted by excessive force well the most important thing. Thing to note is that. If you're feeling symptoms, it may already be too late. Here's deputy director shook it on what exactly watch out for? There are a variety of symptoms. Some of which include puffy swollen is cracked ribs, an inability to breathe, and in many cases death. We're seeing a huge uptick in these symptoms in hospitals and ICU's across the country, which have already been stretched to their breaking point by our militarized police force Oh well fortunately, I don't have any of those symptoms. Am I in the clear, not necessarily. Leslie shook. It also cautioned that there are large number of asymptomatic carriers who can actually be among the most dangerous. Dangerous as they continue to spread systemic violence and oppression, while not even being conscious of it walls, a healthy white man I'm not too concerned, but Marcie. Are there any populations that are particularly vulnerable to this epidemic? Interestingly enough? The CDC has found that the African American community has been affected disproportionately, but really it can affect anyone pets, the elderly even children, and what are officials recommending in the event that you do become exposed. Here's shook it from the CDC once more. If you've been afflicted, we urge you to remain physically and emotionally isolated and avoid all large-scale demonstrations against stay sanctioned violence until physical evidence has healed. Unfortunately, this isn't going. Going away anytime soon, so we're going to have to accept police brutality as part of our future, since any potential cure decades away, and would likely be extremely expensive interesting, so is refraining from protests, the key to preventing the second wave. Well, it may lead to a temporary lull and incidents important to remember police brutality is extremely prevalent, and it can strike vulnerable populations while they're walking through their neighborhood, sitting in their backyard or even asleep in their own bedroom so unfortunately there's really no sure way to escape it all right well. Thanks for the reporting Marcy and stay safe out there. That's OPR's Marcy hammonds. We'll be back in a moment. Somebody better call in the National Guard because there's about to be a news riot. Here's what else we need to know today. In Shenzhen China local sweatshop workers lead Chen was reportedly devastated to hear the jacket she worked so hard on had been looted upon learning that the five dollar jackets she'd labored endlessly over for fourteen cents. An hour have been stolen from Zara retail store in the US Chen was found to be inconsolable comfort to learn that insurance covered the stolen item, and Zara would be just fine. And in Washington, the looting continued last night as president trump was spotted, throwing a garbage can through the window of a local McDonald's before making off with about two thousand dollars worth of big MACs later in the evening, trump was reportedly spotted a desecrated robbins that was later set ablaze, and finally with many companies releasing statements of support for demonstrators this past week. Anti is breaking from the pack with the Popular Pretzel Shop Chain Today calling for all protesters to be shot. Interesting, tank. and. That's it for the topical today. I'm Leslie Price Well folks. It's been quite a week here. In the United States and I just wanted to take a moment to say that in times like these end in the face of unprecedented and longstanding pain. We hear it onion. Public radio are committed to acting as a ball of equality, searching evermore for striped for Justice and equality. And Justice.

The Big Story

How worried should we be about foreign takeovers?

"There's an opportunity for investments from China into Canada today. The innovation minister was forced to stand in this. House acknowledged that he misled when he said that the company. He's selling our retirement homes to was Canadian. Under Chinese ownership. You could be forgiven if you missed some of the stories that inspired today's episode. I mean look. It's my job to be tuned into all the big stories. And I know I miss them. The fact that moves like this one. Don't register on. Most of our radars might be a problem. Right now obviously Canadian businesses are suffer. Not all of them are going to make it through Colfax now. And that makes some of them. A tasty target for foreign buyers who are looking to acquire assets in a stable and relatively prosperous. And in some cases, those investments are badly needed in other cases, though especially when the purchasing company has direct ties to a foreign government. There are real security concerns. I mean. Why would a foreign government have interest in owning a failing Canadian business? So much interest that they are willing to pay more than anybody else. What kinds of risks do we take on when we allow Canadian companies to come under control of state owned businesses. How can candidate government balanced the need for foreign investment especially during an unprecedented economic crisis? With the red flags being waved by our security and intelligence agencies. And also just. Why, don't most of us know or care about this? What part of the big picture is missing here? Jordan Heathrow, and this is the Big Story Stephanie Carbon is an assistant professor of International Affairs at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University. She also has a book coming out this fall on you, T. press, which is called stand on guard, reassessing threats to Canada's national security. Hi Stephanie. I want you to start. If you can buy explaining a recent deal that kind of put this question in our minds in his why we reached out to you, can you just tell me a little bit about The Hope Bay Gold Mine Project, and what it kind of means for national security in general, so the Hope Bay Gold Mine is a mine eighty S. he was a Canadian control. It was it was kind of being run by. by US t, T MAK RESOURCES INC and it unfortunately unperforming, it's one of actually three mines that have been unperforming recently where there's been some kind of take over, but this kind of raised eyebrows because it's been a basically taken over by a company called Shandong Gold Mining Company, which I also goes by St. Gold and the concern is that this company is considered to be a state owned enterprise. The Chinese government has a forty seven percent. Share in this company, and often when you at the other owners, the you can dig down and find that there's actually probably more links to the state. Generally, so this seems to be an a case of a Chinese state owned enterprise, taking over a Canadian natural resources firm something that you know has raised concerns in the past say in the last ten years and seems to be happening even in this Cova era or perhaps because of it. Why does it raise concerns? I? Mean pretend I know nothing what's wrong with them? So. This is a really good question. Canada is is a small country, right? We're a country, thirty, seven, thirty eight million people, and that means we. Need for an investment in order to grow our economy. especially up north I mean it's very expensive to develop things up north, and we know that successive governments have wanted to encourage business up north to try and improve the lives and conditions of people who live there, but we get concerned when we see these government, company or state owned or even state champion enterprises coming into the market in order to provide that foreign investment, and sometimes they are the only companies that are interested in providing that financial assistance to get these companies going. So you know the first concern is for a long time. We saw the government trying to get of business. Right privatizing various companies, but we're seeing. Despite the Canadian government getting out of these businesses, we're seeing other governments. Take their place, and this is something that actually Stephen Harper warned about in two thousand and twelve thousand thirteen. Canada has spent a long time. Trying to privatize its into industry, but not in such a way that we want foreign governments coming in and taking over those. Businesses instead, so this is. This is something that we've worried about for some time and. Part of the reason that these state-owned enterprises are problematic is that we often don't understand what they are trying to do in. You've taken a normal company right? McDonald's any other company. You know that they're trying to make money, right? That's what they do, but with state owned enterprises. Is there some kind of geopolitical or Geo? Objective that they have in mind. Particularly in the natural resources sector that we have to maybe be concerned about you know, are they trying to strategically placed themselves in such a way that they have control over Canadian resource in a way that perhaps maybe Canadians or the Canadian government would be uncomfortable with. Do we have any examples of that happening that we can look at and say you have this was A. A mistake we shouldn't have gone down that path so a really good example of this would probably be nexen people would point to next is of course a oil company. It's out in Alberta and in two thousand twelve. It was kind of putting itself on the market, and it was taken over by Seahawk. which is a Chinese state owned enterprise, a petroleum company and there was some concern that you know. Do we actually get want. These kind of government owned enterprises owning these businesses, and it paid well over the market price in order to get access to accent. A Louis. Some national security concerns that were raised at the time. Eventually, the Harper government did let it go through, but you know a lot of the promises that were made as a part of the deal. Really haven't gone very well. the business hasn't been as profitable as as was hoped. There's been some safety issues. Accidents with regards to nexen owned critical infrastructure, and even recently we've seen a number of layoffs. I mean. There's so many layoffs in that industry anyways in my heart goes out to the the oil workers, but. It. Really just hasn't performed as well as hopes, and this is one of the concerns that I think has often been raised. Is that state owned? Enterprises can't fail they are. Backed by the state. They're not subject to the same pressures as a normal company like again. Going back to McDonald's. You

"But even if we're not sheltering with family or roommates, we have technology connecting asked. But sometimes you just WanNa go where nobody knows your name because there's nobody there. We're talking today about hermits from the Greek Aramis Manning wilderness or an isolated place. There are all sorts of reasons why a person might up and leave their community behind to live a simple solitary life. Some people begin their life of solitude when they go into hiding and simply never come back out. Such as with Canadian Willard, McDonald, who jumped from a troop train in Nova Scotia after being drafted into World War Two. Two other men jumped with him, but they were later caught. When you get, Shanghai like that, you get armed, so McDonald had three Oh three rifle on him, which definitely came in handy in his new home, MacDonald built a one room shack near Gully Lake in the wilds of Nova Scotia and lived in it for the next sixty years. At first he had to rely on hunting and fishing to survive, but residents of nearby town soon discovered him and began to help him get food and supplies.

"Was back with a bloody vengeance established in the early nineteen nineties. Eastern lightning believed the second coming of Christ was manifested in the form of a Chinese woman named Yongsheng been and conveniently their female. Jesus was married to the cult leader. John Elway Shun both Joanne. Yang fled to the United States in two thousand to avoid prison but the cult itself was still thriving in China with millions of followers across the country. Since two thousand eastern lightning had been connected to a number of crimes and suspicious activity most recently two years before in two thousand twelve members staged massive demonstrations across the country to spread false predictions of the end of the world years before that the group was linked to a series of violent incidents arson battery kidnapping and extortion. But the savage unprovoked killing of a stranger seemed unheard of even for eastern lightning. China was outraged by whoosh `alliance murder soon shaky cell phone recordings of the attack taken by other McDonald's patrons circulated across the Internet though the violence itself isn't visible the sound of Wu's screams and the image of her attackers dipping. In and out of frame as they delivered each blow was disturbing and the people of China were determined to punish those responsible. Not long after patriarch. John Lee Dong who dealt the killing blows and his eldest daughter. Jong Fawn who started the attack were interviewed on national television. When asked why he murdered Wu John Lee. Dong simply replied. I beat her with all my might and stamped on her. To she was a demon. We had to destroy her. John Fong was equally callous as they stood before judges at their subsequent trial. She often smiled. Father and daughter were each sentenced to death and executed. They maintain their belief that the killing was righteous to the end John. Lee Don claimed we are not afraid of the law. We have faith in God but while the Jong sacrifice their lives to carry out violence they believed was for the sake of their Jesus. They'd ultimately persecute their fellow believers even further the McDonalds murder pulled. The Church of Almighty God back under media scrutiny and as a result government crackdowns intensified after. Wu's murder Chinese authorities arrested more than one thousand members of eastern lightning and considering China's notoriously aggressive approach to religious dissidents. Their punishment was most likely brutal. After the fact even eastern lightning denied the event entirely refusing to associate self with the Jong's crimes in an official statement about the McDonalds murder. They said this case itself is full of lies and layered with dubious facts. The lies used to frame and entrapped. The Church of Almighty God are collapsing in on themselves today. Eastern lightning remains on a list of banned religious groups in China and according to its website is reportedly still amassing millions of followers but though the group has managed to evade the spotlight for years now it's Army of radical believers may always be on the precipice of committing their next senseless act of violence..

New video shows Minneapolis police arrest of George Floyd before death

"In Minneapolis fallout from the death of the man in police custody this week continues a video that went viral shows a police officer pressing his knee into the neck of a man the man was face down on the street handcuffed he repeatedly told the officer he could not breathe protesters gathered last night and then again today to demand that officers arrested the mayor is now calling for the same thing NPR Cheryl Corley is following that she's here now hi Cheryl hi just give us the latest catch us up on what has happened today well we know that the the four officers were all fired the mayor has weighed in on this is is you mention and set on the statement on Twitter that being black in America shouldn't be a death sentence we also know that the FBI is conducting a federal civil rights investigation the state police are conducting one as well and as we know that that arrest was captured on video and we know how that brought this whole issue of police use of force into the public consciousness and and many folks just say that this death was similar to the twenty fourteen death of Eric garner who also said he couldn't breathe when he was detained by police yeah we should just lay out clearly the man in question the man who died George Floyd is blocked the police officers need you see on his neck is white so that's the underlying dynamic here the family of George Floyd and we mentioned that the mayor of Minneapolis Jacob Frye they are asking for criminal charges to be filed what do we know about that isn't likely well we've seen it happen in recent years we have seen police officers charged there was another case in Minnesota in twenty sixteen where an officer in the shooting death of Philando Casteel you may remember that one that was the school cafeteria supervisor of the officer was charged officer Janice he was acquitted in Chicago there was a police officer was found guilty of second degree murder in the shooting death of laquan McDonald that also raised a lot of protest across the country the video was really crucial Mary Louise in both those cases and it may be here to if any charges are filed I talked to Chuck Wexler the head of the police executive research forum that's an organization that works to develop best practices for police department and he said he's seen that video you really ask yourself why does that officer has continued to keep his his knee on the individual snack I mean it's just it's just excruciating to watch after he says he can't read and I will also want to point out that there are about a thousand the fatal police involved deaths every year and and few of those officers are charged but it does happen he mentioned the case of Eric garner and I'm also thinking of Michael brown in Ferguson in twenty fourteen those staffs did lead to reforms just remind us what happened there what what we might be watching for here well in both of those cases we solve the department of justice get involved in in Ferguson in particular there was a consent decree and the the city and the police department had to make several changes M. what happens in a lot of these cases is that the most significant policy and reform is all about the use of force and we've seen that in several departments in the first issue the first issue they take as they say you know you have to believe in the sanctity of life when we are dealing with these cases and then the second reform is that they asked officers to intervene and that there must be a duty to intervene so those are probably the two biggest reforms that have come out of these

"Am a feminist but recently when someone said to me that my brand was vain and shallow. I was so pleased said that to you. Such brand is vain and shallow. Do they mean your like your comedy stylings no like me? You're wow. I don't think you'll vain and shallow. I think you as a woman of great depth and a lot of self awareness. I know that's great but the other one. Just sound so much more sexy. Yeah sounds fun now. I see that I see that. I'm a feminist but I love that people call a vodka soda with a dash of cranberry the guilty feminist cocktail. Even though it used to be called a rose Kennedy. I have taken another woman drink. But she was super rich and I'm not sure she was very nice. Some good with it. Jfk's mom she had many children but most of them seem to be men who cheated on him. So I'm fine with it. I think all of the men that she had she decided she you decide. That's father Shay Med. She had a daughter that had a lobotomy. Oh my God yeah. It's dark that's a sad story. Yeah Yeah I'm a feminist but I've been very anxious about my teenage daughters social life since seeing her birthday. Wish list was only books honestly. I was like who is this child. What's happened to her? Then I was like drugs. Do you think my husband was like. Why would you think that I'm like she doesn't want makeup similar Claude? What's wrong with her? But I worry I mean you're a teenager like but anyway she's a good kid but still. I am a feminist wearing all black and polls because it makes me feel like Chanel. Like Coco Chanel. But then I have to remind myself she was a Nazi sympathizer and not want to look like her. But then I have to push that out of my mind so we can enjoy the black dress in the polls i. I'd like to be able to carry off like a big flower like chest flour when she used to wear like a black outbreak. Gardenia. I'd like to be able to pull off an oversized one. I don't think I am a feminist but when people find out I've been married twenty two years and they try and do the math to figure out how old I am I always say. Don't bother child bride. It happens a lot where I'm from. So they're like okay. I'm a feminist if if Pretty Patel lost her job and her cat away and she went to boot to spend boot points and they said Oh sorry these have expired and she went to parties to use her sixth session and they said Oh. Sorry you had to use that by Friday and Saturday morning and then she went to McDonald's after an hour and they said Oh sorry. We're not serving chips anymore. The chips have run out. We're not gonNA put anymore because we're just about to close the door. And then she went home and she lost her the key to her house and the people inside were asleep and she was like oh they couldn't hear her or they probably pretended they couldn't yeah don't realize living with her that much and then had to go and sleep on a bench and then in the morning she woke up and she remembered that she didn't have a job and she felt super super bombed out and then she went back to boots with the cart. Said look please. I've only reward points like sorry expired. You should have used them before. Pretty Patel at everyone in the letter of the letter of the Law Letter. I would be fine with it

He took a hiatus from works to finish his master's program. I'm a travel writer editor for my work. So we were basically had no plans and we're just kind of bopping around and and seeing where felt right so we were actually in India. We are in Delhi win. I The Danish borders were shutting in mere hours. Of course Jonathan could get back but his girlfriend's in American could not that came right before at the American borders shots and I could get back. Jonathan could not so with with literally five hours at in India to choose. We found a cheap flight from Delhi to Bangkok. And we said you know what will be together. This is. There's Kobe it can't destroy a beautiful weather and Delicious Pad Thai at we will will take easy here and just see what comes next. So that's what originally brought me back to Thailand so you all with Jonathan. It's not some long distance relationship livelihood in other episodes and fortunately he is an officer on a Danish oil-tanker so as soon as the flights to Europe started dwindling down in Thailand. He knew he knew that he had to get home or he risked losing his job so about a month ago he he left me Could've defend myself but obviously we we chat every day. This is the first time in my life where I've really had to make every decision For myself and and really every decision wasn't important. One so he is. He will be there at the end of this. I'm I'm really hoping that at some point in the near or distant future either Denmark opens again the US Open's again. Thailand opens again. But until now we we are very much the long distance relationship with him in the middle of the ocean. What are you doing? You was there. Jonathan's going back to today mark. He's going back to work. Your tribal rod is not a lot of commissioning going on. So what have you been doing? Well I'm the kind of person that always needs to keep myself busy. And just in order to stay sane also because I really do love what I do. So as a travel writer and editor. I've pivoted a lot of my messages to stay home but in the future blank blank would be the optimal you know post pandemic vacation so I helped launch L. A. Style magazines travel sector which has been a lot of learning. Seo on the back end and kind of looking for new talent new writers at the same time I also am the executive producer. A PBS show so public television show that's streaming across all the United States. It's funny I don't even have a TV here in my bungalow. But I'm getting all of these pictures of friends who are saying. Hey live is not your shown that I see when I turn on the television. So yes it is hand. It's been a lot of fun. You kind of show people that the idea of friendship connection when travelling which is what the message of fly brother. The show is about Still remains true even during a global worldwide pandemic so it in fact it's been it's been more meaningful than ever because it just shows us the importance of the people that we meet when we travel not just the place as a little bit of a pivot from my normal everyday because those things are are a little bit in line with you know my career and might suggest. I've met a really wonderful group of experts from all over the world theory We joke that were a bit of United Nations of of Thailand at and we of course in in a socially distant manner have this rocketed to really help the street dogs and the elephants year in in crabby because at the street dogs really rely on the scraps of the hotels and the restaurants tourist just leaving McDonald's hamburger in a garbage near the beach but with legitimately notorious. These dogs are are starving and in Near Jack. So what we do. Is We go on our on our motorbikes early in the mornings I'm we collect food. We have you know a donation site available or use our own funds And then we have about eighty five street dogs in different packs that we ride our bikes to which is a new phenomenon for me. Because I've I've never been exactly the most graceful human being so Doing that on a motorbike is is definitely stepping out of comfort zone. I never had thought really how much a pandemic would affect you know with this chain of events how it would affect the animals and in turn affects the humans because now a lot of times people like culturally are are more frightened of the street dogs but if the dogs aren't having to you know come up in bag and really show their show their strength in order to just survive if they can be fed and we feed them food. We feed them vitamins. We've gotten We've taken some to the vets just to make sure they're all right you know they're manged there for Then everyone kind of lives in harmony so that people generally have been very very open and welcoming to to the group of ex stats riding around in helping the the dogs.

"We've got McDonald's we've got starbucks. We have a longtime CEO emphasis on longtime reportedly leaving the company that he he founded and we will get to all of those but we have to start with apple. Because Apple's first quarter which is the holiday quarter was everything you would want to be if you're an apple. Shareholder profits and revenue came in higher than expected iphone sales fifty-six billion dollars worth of IPHONE. Sales else yeah. This is the quintessential beat and raise kind of quarter which apple probably needed in terms the stock Devaluation was trading At all time highs in now is a new all-time high a little bit more so it fulfilled A very high expectations and the question. That you know probably will be bandied around will not spend too much time on this house is evaluation justified at this point. Yeah I mean. We'll we'll get to the stock in a second but the iphone sales rightfully so getting the headlined find the. What is the other products category? That's the official named apple gives it the other products Apple Watch Air Pods beats headphones. Ten billion dollars worth of sales. Yeah you can split up the various segments of apple and get a number of extremely large companies and I should just spin off the other products and you'd have a maybe not a maybe not a top top one hundred company in terms of market cap but certainly top two hundred certainly if you were a fortune five hundred s and p five hundred companies. How many could you get out of Apple? There that that must've work has been done a few times the pile of cash is one of them At at over two hundred billion right now is one of the more dominant companies In history is apple's pile of trades under the ticker P. L. C. S. But in terms of the actual business yeah they've got the the various moving parts wearables. I I guess and and home and That being the the fastest growing part today and and so- expectations for for that or are the highest of various things I think that the IPAD and Mac Sales were a little below expectations and there. It would have been a time where that would have been a big problem But today is not that time iphone is still the dominant part the business and and really got the job done Especially in China. So what about the stock well actually before we wrap up on the stock worth mentioning and this is something will return to a couple of times. Today Tim. Tim Cook did talk about China. And I think in most notably showed up in the guidance that they gave cue to the range of guidance was wider than and they normally give and that was tim cook in his team's nod towards the uncertainty in China and rightfully so yeah a bit of uncertainty. Both as is to what the purchasing patterns will be there especially over quarter in our relief. You're looking at apple over one quarter of timeframe you're probably missing a lot of story there but Possibly benefiting a little bit from move to do some of the manufacturing outside of China and really. Yeah this like many other companies is talking has to talk about what the China fact is going to be in his largely answering entering with the you know over the short term. We really don't know over the long term. Probably not much of a problem apple stock has more than doubled over the past year. As you said it's at an all time high as strong as this company is. This really doesn't seem like the data by shares if you don't own shares so going into the day it had moved up from Over the last six months from about seventeen times earnings of over the next twelve months to twenty four times earnings over the next twelve months The next twelve months earnings. Are you know. Always a little harder to Way Than than the actual trailing twelve months so it they're looking at good earnings in the next twelve months and things like China might be more of a headwind than than we know today And giving a much higher multiple on that positive future. The than was being done six months ago. So yeah the the risk here is that the the stock trades a little bit more like the stock usually trades and at some point in the future. It probably will shares of McDonald's up a little bit this. It's morning after a good fourth quarter report. McDonald's prophets were a little higher than expected global. Same store sales were nearly six percent Another company dealing with uncertainty in China in the future in the present. McDonald's closed a few hundred locations agency. But that's a tiny fraction of the number of locations. McDonald's has around the world. Yeah there is certainly a time when McDonald's was looked tat Negatively for not having done as much expansion into China Essay Yum brands which got bigger there faster and earlier than McDonald's. What's but Today that doesn't look like As much of a problem They have to sort of give the same answer today that Others are giving. We'd we don't not really no. We're taking care of our employees and and you know we don't know I I think that for McDonald's it's more temporary sorry a more where permanent hit to actual cash in the bank in that. If you don't eat Adam McDonalds you're not gonna eat more there later hopefully Whereas if you don't go out and buy your iphone today and you really want to you're gonNA buy it And you know in a month or two or something like that so I think that you you know the phones will eventually be built and manufactured and sold and McDonald's. This is a you know when when they're closed for business they don't they don't make that up later. So that said is another good quarter. I think they have highlighted that US sales are an traffic is what they're you're most focused on and I think that is going well the US guest count getting US guests counter. Positive is our number one priority priority new CEO said In in the call. And you know they're they're getting people in they are. Although I get why it's a priority already. You know even though we see the positive comps and they're able to boost that ticket for two thousand nine thousand nine they did. They did see a slight decline in traffic. You mentioned mentioned the new CEO. I think that's also worth highlighting. McDonald's I mean this is a quarter we're referring to him as the new CEO. St I'm sorry because his name is harder to pronounce than Smith I'm GonNa let you take a crack at it. You'll probably get it right but I'm not one hundred percent sure that I'll pronounce it perfectly because because it is not Smith which is I think the only name I can confidently get right all the time Chris. Kempinski is the new CEO. And I think you're right. Yeah I wrote it down phonetically phonetically but worth pointing out that you know they put up. These numbers is a huge company. And they put up these numbers when in the middle of the quarter Steve easterbrook who had been from a business standpoint a successful CEO and certainly from a stock standpoint and he left suddenly and immediately and Credit to Kempinski and his lieutenants for having no time to ramp up as CEO l.. And pulling off this type of horror and we'll see if he can handle it just doesn't smoothly for the next couple of quarters. Yeah they're so so and there is a tendency to give probably my estimation too much credit to CEO Both positively the and negatively at times And we'll see whether McDonalds a an operation owes as much to Easterbrook as would have been thought the case you know this time last year he certainly did a great job and they're in a good position Right now what they're looking at is more for competition from places on breakfast which McCall's got too early while giving more competition to the the chicken sandwich phenomenon That Popeye's got to earlier than The McDonald's so they're rolling out a couple of new chicken sandwiches and they are. I think expecting more competition from Wendy's in the breakfast category so you know a little bit the getting To some competitions You you know. Both sides could and Brad from a headline standpoint starbucks first quarter report KINDA similar to McDonald's in the sense that profits came came in higher than expected they put up global same store sales growth of five percent. That was I think about a half percent higher than was expected and yet shares of starbucks down a couple percentage points and Maybe they're being more aggressive with their guidance. Since with respect to China but if they are it's probably because they need to be. Yeah I think this is where three three now on getting to China being a big part of of today's stories and It is the their fastest growing and I think second largest market and is a major major major contributor to the top and bottom line again when they're shutting down stores which they're doing closing They are losing that money that cash flow and they're not gonNA make it back despite our recommendation that if you have missed some coffee go ahead and drink more the next day right and make sure you're you're you're getting all the health benefits you can. I mean this is this is not make light of the situation but One thing that lives in listening to the Conference Call I. I felt like a little bit. The I thought the did a very good job of just going on again and again again about the partners Being what other places call employees starbucks calls partners and that the starbucks is success was all attributable to the partners and the a special relationships. And all that and and I'm going through as you have and will again the college experience and my feeling going to every single college and hearing their Spiel is what makes that place. Special is the people right and left and I got a little bit of that vibe was through the conference call which you don't typically quickly get There are many. CEO's that Talk about their third grade employees but starbucks is definitely a leader in that category. Oy I agree with that but I referenced. This the other day that I think that how companies doing business in China provide guidance in their earnings report. This quarter is something that bears watching more closely than usual and as a starbucks shareholder. I was happy with the guidance that they gave the clarity. You mentioned Kevin Johnson CEO. I'll also mention Pat Greece Murphy's the CFO just being very clear with analysts analysts about China about closings. Basically saying to the point that Kaminsky made with McDonald's look we're going to update our guidance for for the current quarter and the fiscal year as soon as we possibly can and they're also dealing in an environment where the the state government of China may not necessarily be giving them all the information they want. That is a very real possibility..

"That dispenses thirty two ingredient chicken nuggets for your kids when they're screaming in the car? You know I it fulfils fulfils. This idea of indulgence. Marketing Foods is healthier. Didn't work but instead. McDonald's went for a stealth health campaign this past decade they cut sodium and sugar in their offerings offerings. Bu about ten percent and they just didn't tell anyone these kind of small changes can have a huge impact given how many people eat McDonald's every day and meanwhile everyone instill thinks they're getting their indulgent treat. It's the same thing for their sourcing. If McDonald's makes a change affects nearly everyone McDonald's for example announced that it would go with cage free eggs and five percent of the eggs consumed I think in the. US and Canada are consumed at McDonald's and McDonald's makes that shift which they they have started to do the effect is this is fascinating on a number of levels. First of all. Millions of Americans are going to have their first cage free eggs by way of McDonald's and then there is the industry effects. They decided that they would remove remove antibiotics from their chicken and that is something that has led to widespread changes across the industry. Same goes for eggs so the decisions. McDonald's makes can literally reshape America and Americans but in a very deep way. It goes the other way round to McDonald's reflects America. It is what it is because of who this country is and how it grew. McDonald's was born because of the rise of car culture and the growth of the suburbs and an obsession with technology and efficiency and speed. The hamburger grew unpopularity. Just as America was becoming connected by countrywide movies and radio shows and everyone was starting to search for a national identity and national cuisine and at the same time McDonald Donald was able to become the behemoth that it is because of America's comparatively low minimum wages and Americans belief that private business and individual hard work can solve love all of society's Brooklyn's and Marsha says all of this is most obvious when you look at the out sized role that McDonald's is played in the black community which despite everything she can't entirely I condemn. I have seen people who are deeply indebted and have so much gratitude for the world that was created created for them through working at McDonald's and rising the ranks and becoming a franchise owner. I know people who are very much. They voted to this system in this enterprise that they believed has not only lifted them into a different economic status status but has allowed them to endow professorships and various opportunities at historically black universities. I know people who had opportunities to travel and to compete in various competitions for athletics and for music because of the fast food industry so I will say this I think that the relationship is reflective of how limited outcomes can be when we don't have robust public systems for people to get their needs met. McDonald's should not be a person's only food option and it should not be the only job that's available in a community and it should not be the only place that a person can go to get sponsorship aunts or ship for youth sports and so I think what I would say is that the relationship exposes. How deeply clearly failed? The Nation has been in serving all of its people equally and it perhaps reflects not only desperation but some ingenuity in. How people get their needs met? But Marcia says you can't blame McDonalds McDonald's alone for the inner cities problems and you certainly can't expect McDonald's solve them all either. I think that if we believe that the fast food industry is made to solve these problems than we have already kind of given up on what's possible symbol and at the end of the day. Nothing in my mind can replace a robust publicly supported publicly funded set set of systems that assesses what people need and tries to meet them. There's nothing better than that. And we've never really had it in this nation even with her criticism of the outsized role. McDonald's has ended up playing in black communities. Marsha still feels extremely connected to McDonald's and to her memories of the restaurant from throughout Radyr Childhood unto the Food Only Guy and the spirit of full disclosure. I have not eaten McDonald's in Weil as I got older fast. Food was just harder for me to digest But with that being said I think McDonald's French fries are the best French fries of the Great Fast Food Franchises mcnuggets we'll get mcnuggets are mcnuggets. Perfect for me. Both my parents worked and my mom. I love her and I hope she doesn't tune in to this part of it at least because is she wasn't like a a really big cook. My Dad wasn't a really big cook at all but a growing up we would go to McDonalds a lot I get the mcnuggets analyze. Anna Love them and I will always no matter what they do to the recipe. McDonald's mcnuggets. Hold a very special place in my heart as we're actually my favorite too. I particularly loved the dipping dipping sauces. My family didn't eat a McDonalds a lot but my mom made a homemade version of the nuggets breaded and Pan Fried chicken pieces and we called chicken mic graber and I loved it. Sounds sounds good. But it's also kind of Adam and marshes larger point. We all have a relationship with McDonald's however distant or intimate however positive ever negative it built us. We built it. It's who we are for good and for bad and their fries are indeed.

"This was a big issue of debate. And there are a number of anti fast food folks in the nineteen seventies the knees that were suggesting that very few dollars actually stayed within the community. If you think about the way that franchising works you have to pay a lot of administrative fee to the parent company. You are purchasing from predetermined suppliers that are often not local. Your insurance company wasn't necessarily local and so other than payroll and philanthropy. The question of how much actually stayed in the community thirty was a really good question in the Nineteen Seventy S. Some researchers worked out that only about seventeen percent of what an individual McDonald's restaurant spent actually really stayed in the community where it's based the rest went outside back to headquarters and big national vendors so some people said it was time for genuinely black. Owned businesses is businesses born in the communities where they're going to operate time for them to take on McDonald's and the other national fast food chains. Oh they were blown right out of the water in the latter part the book I look at a business called chicken Georgia's that was created by a Baltimore. Man named Ted Holmes who was a believer in black capitalism and had thought about different types of businesses and investments and. He starts this fast food. Chicken restaurant that is quite popular locally chicken. Compassion Joy But he cannot maintain the business and keep up with the competition from KFC and Popeye's big big brands that are able to do things like provide coupons and discounts. And you know. Chicken Georgia's is now one for the archives. Some McDonalds and the other national national chains were usually the only option and of that seventeen percent of their money that stayed in the community. Roughly fifteen percent went to labor costs. One of the great promises of bringing these franchises into the inner city was that they provided jobs. The unemployment rate for African Americans was several times over Unemployment rates for whites entry level. Jobs for teenagers was incredibly hard to find. And so the promise that you could get a pretty good wage job through fast food really resonated in the late sixties. Well for a long time you know before Job became this pejorative term. Working at McDonalds was seen. Culturally is truly honorable thing when you were. You're learning responsibility. You're learning how to operate in a professional setting often as a teenager and atom says. These teen jobs weren't considered great just for the African American community. Oh my God. Everyone is flipping burgers in Nineteen ninety-six. McDonald's estimated that one in every eight Americans had some point worked at McDonalds. One of those was Jeff Bezos. Who is now the richest person in the world? He still brags about cracking eggs on the Saturday shift. At McDonald's Paul Ryan the former former vice presidential candidate and House majority leader talked about washing dishes at McDonald's back when he was a teenager working for pocket get money. And then you have cultural figures Lin. Manuel Miranda Jay Leno. Pink Seal Shania Twain working at McDonalds used to be seen as formative give a stepping stone on the path to somewhere better but at some point that changed job entered the actual formal dictionary in in the late nineteen. Eighteen nineties is a term for sort of dead end job by the nine thousand nine hundred people working in fast food restaurants. Were no longer teenagers. I think it's anywhere between Twenty Six and twenty nine line depending on who you ask. That's the average age of a fast food worker today and that means it's not a teenager learning responsibility for the first time but somebody WHO's trying and to make ends meet and doing so under very difficult conditions and so what previously seen is a ladder opportunity became more of a hamster wheel a hamster wheel without health insurance and without a living wage and without many real opportunities for advancement but it is true that these franchises sizes made some people rich. Ray KROC told reporters that McDonald's had made more African American millionaires than any other company. Certainly those black inner-city franchise owners often got rich But if they wanted to expand and operate restaurants in white neighborhoods that was the no the white franchise owners could operate anywhere. They wanted even in the inner cities. The black owners were segregated into only owning franchises in the inner city. So unlike white owners they had a limit on how much money they could make and Marsha told us that this is kind of reflective of one of the major limitations of the whole black capitalism movement and so it's easy to say. Oh well that's a simple idea. Giving people more opportunities to operate businesses and create jobs. Bob's what's wrong with that. I think the fundamental tension in that idea is that that kind of silence the voices that said well what about integration and instead the move towards black capitalism and black businesses always presupposed and always imagined that these businesses says would operate in hyper segregated environments again limiting opportunity and taking pressure away from governments and society to make any real changes. Still Marsha and Adam agree that within those hyper segregated environments. McDonald's often served as a gathering place. Almost a community center is third places where people would go outside at home and outside of work to hang out to meet up to just be somewhere that wasn't palmer work and socialize. There aren't many places where that happens in modern America. It's a really unique feature fast food because the barrier to access is a cup of coffee and you can hang out for as long as you want. You're not sectioned off by your age. You don't have to travel long distance necessarily and that's how it's come to sort of inhabit this new role in American life whether it's a sort out of a lack of resources libraries and parks and other institutions normally would be attractive has shifted to become fast food food restaurants when it it is sad that that is kind of one of the few places where that happens but if you're looking for the bright spot it's that it's still exists is there are places where people kind of congregate and it's nice. It's nice in a way that if you squint a little bit. It doesn't seem terrible. If you have to. squint that hard. It is actually kind of terrible. It's not just the physical restaurant that ends up playing a central role in the community especially an African American inner city. Neighborhoods where where there weren't a whole lot of resources. Marsha says that McDonald's made everything possible so the first time I ever competed in a quiz bowl competition about African American history they were one of the sponsors and they ensured that we got prizes at this big ceremony at the do Sabato African American History Museum with with the Mayor There is sponsored the American Double Dutch League and the American High School Band and the McDonald's all American Basketball Game Magic Johnson played that game in high school. seculow Neil Michael Jordan Lebron James. If you were a McDonald's all American athlete you're one of the best high school basketball players in the country. This investment in African American high school students is great and and it's also terrible. You don't even have to. squint like Adam says to see that. There's something really wrong with. Having one single Fastfood Company the Fund almost all the sport and culture in a community and function as the community gathering place and provide almost all the jobs too and I'm concerned about that because I think no business should have that kind of impact or that kind of influence or authority in the lives of people who are in struggle and so. I think it's really fascinating the way that fast food has in many ways represented a a lot of the racial economic inequalities intentions in our country. But there's something else at the same time as McDonald's was solidifying their hold over African. The American communities there was a new concern rising about their role in the American Diet and as fast food became more commonplace and became a regular fixture in the diets of Americans broadly but especially of the Hor- the surgeon general and other authorities on health started started to commission studies and they started to realize that America was in the midst of an obesity crisis and the fast food consumption played a big role in that. A lot of those critiques racialist and they were often used as a way to demean or critique the ways that people of color lived and the choices that they made for their children but one of the elements of the conversation that always gets under. My skin is that a lot of these inquiries he's into health disparities often presuppose that certain communities or certain people have an affinity for fast food that there's something natural and and Burgers are delicious and ice cream is good and fries are amazing. I think a lot of people can say that but I think that the way that health researchers I don't consider the larger world in which fast food operates in certain communities that goes beyond on the food. They're missing the long history of racism and lack of opportunities that lead to taxpayers helping fund all those inner-city franchises and to civil rights organizations stations supporting that investment because it was so desperately needed and it was basically the only kind of investment on offer anyway and so that conversation as is it emerged in the eighties and the nineties. I think was very much ignorant of this history and did not want to acknowledge that racism constrains choices and that people make the best choices they can under the various circumstances in which they live of course it. It wasn't only the black community that was being told that fast food was unhealthy for all the reasons marsh mentioned the health community did kind of target that message at the black community but really the whole country was hearing airing that message and so where the fast food companies themselves. My favorite anecdote from this time is that Kentucky Fried Chicken actually shortened its name to KFC in Nineteen Ninety one because fried was such a an F. Word in response to this new health consciousness fast-food chain started offering quote healthy options. Take Donald's famously. Had this Burger that was ninety one percent fat free beef and had seaweed derivative in it..

"For ME GROWING UP IN CHICAGO. McDonald's was always around. We had birthday parties at McDonald's because her apartment was on on the small size I went to McDonald's after work in high school and after school. It was the go-to meal when my mom Um and I were driving far distances and we needed something to eat and so I have probably spent most of my life inside of McDonald's so the fact that I wrote a book about McDonald's. McDonald's is actually not that surprising. This is Marsha chatwin. She's a professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University and her new book. The book about McDonalds. It's called franchise the Golden Arches in Black America and speaking of the Golden Arches. There's another new book out called drive through dreams. James A Journey through the heart of America's fast-food kingdom it's by journalist. Adam Chandler the Golden Arches are thought to be according to independent survey more recognizable as a symbol. Both then the Christian crosses around the world recognizable or no. I didn't imagine we'd ever focus an entire episode on McDonald's but here we are Dr Together. Adema Marsha Taylor story about McDonald's that is about much more than McDonald's making it perfect for gastropod and we of course our guest repod the podcast. That looks at food through the Lens of science in history. I'm Cynthia Graber and I'm Nikola twilly and this episode. We're getting to the bottom of how McDonald's took over America. The story starts with WHO invented the hamburger burkart. And how did it become so ubiquitous that it gets bigger from there this episode. We're asking his McDonald's basically America's national cuisine and if it is is what can it tell us about who we are as a country less. How did the tax payer ended up funding the spread of McDonald's in the inner cities and why we're civil rights groups on board? Well whatever idea you have of of. How huge fast food is you should double or triple in your mind because the statistics are bonkers? They're completely bananas us. Eighty percent of Americans eat fast food every month. Ninety six percent of them eat fast food every year which is more than the number of Americans that participate participate on the Internet atom. Says there's not a single place in America that eighty percent of Americans go to at least monthly not a library or Jim or any house of worship according according to the Centers for Disease Control which is not happy about this stat. More than a third of American children eat food every day and for the population as the whole. It's roughly the same thirty six percent of us. Eat it every single day.

It isn't unusual but because we're thinking of our historic responsive remember that this isn't isn't the seventies we're a net export of energy products now and so the fact that we're in a very different position when it comes to oil and gas supply allows us take a much more relaxed response to this.

McDonald's is testing crispy chicken sandwich into markets. I'm sorry to report that. Neither of those markets as close to me Houston Texas and Knoxville Tennessee today through the end of January. McDonald's is testing this out. I think if you're a McDonald's shareholder you've gotta it'd be popping the champagne because this is I mean. This is the story of well arguably the story for McDonald's twenty nine thousand nine is the sudden departure of the CEO but but right after that is earlier this year where the independent board of Franchisees send the letter to management saying priority number one is a southern style. crispy chicken sandwich so we can compete with chick-fil-a and now Popeye's and well done franchisees because they appear beginning their wish. Well done if it's well done because chick-fil-a sets a pretty high bar. I have not tried the Popeye's chicken sandwich because I'm not going to wait in line for the chicken sandwich any any more than the normal amount of time. You wait in line for chicken sandwich but McDonald's has to get this right and the reality is they've struck out with premium. Chicken sandwiches sandwiches. They also have not done a particularly good job in the past decade since I was a kid with event launches remember when it used to. I'd be like it's the Olympics and like McDonalds have they were the sort of original pioneer in that seasonal exciting special offering. And it really petered out. I mean they did that. The whole international menu earlier this year and few weren't driving by McDonald's you didn't ever really good sense of what was going on so I do think this is good but the sandwich you better be good and that's not always easy to pull off. Yeah I'm I'm trying to remember who it was but Someone maybe it was Burger King someone in the last year or two a rolled out a new product that had been field tested. And it hasn't really worked. I think a great example would be Caso Kepala other ego where where they did a lot of tests and that's what it was. It was just because now it works but the first time they're like. Hey we tested it in these markets and we're ready for the roll rollout and nationally. It was a loss in my opinion. They asked some of the wrong questions. Because people like the taste but there was an expectation for appearance. Appearance with K so that it it still doesn't deliver on so they were kind of missing the mark and I don't think McDonald's will do that but tastes or subjective. Do you really. You believe the Popeye's chicken sandwich is better than like a chicken sandwich at a nice restaurant that does chicken sandwiches probably not but people have gone mad for it so it becomes a viral thing and and more a status symbol than necessarily the quality of the chicken sandwich. I absolutely agree with you that they need to get this right but I also think that they don't need for the sandwich to be the best they don't need it to be better than Chick-fil-a they just needed to be good enough. So that that particularly on Sundays when every chick-fil-a is close people. Say All right. I'll go to McDonald's for that. I feel like if you're a McDonald's you should really just google. How do I make tick Philip Chicken Sandwich because you can do that? You could find all the fast food and different ways to make it at home and that really should be your flavor profile and what you're going for. I'm not saying copy. Get a hundred percent. Exactly maybe ninety eight percent exactly. But there's clearly a standard for this and Chick-fil-a has created reputation that it's a premium product which people will pay a premium price for. McDonald's has struggled with premium price. So they may have to deliver premium product at a pretty good but not premium price. So it's a bit of a tight rope but yeah if they can make this work. I think it'll be a driving. Hit for them before we wrap up. It's been a tradition on this show starting back in two thousand fifteen started by our producer extraordinaire. Dan Boyd that the holiday music that appears on the radio increasingly earlier in the year. We don't begrudge the radio stations for doing that because that makes them money. That's one and it was early. I think it was early November a station here in DC had flipped to the holiday format and one of my kids is. Why do they do that? And I said because it makes money. That's quite simply. Why don't begrudge them doing that? What we judge them is the fact that it's the same fifty the songs and there's so much great holiday music out there so we took it upon ourselves on this humble little podcast to replace our standard in closing music with a different song for the month of December each day? A different song to you. Know to sort of broaden the horizons of us and the dozens of listeners because again there's so much great holiday music out there so many artists that you wouldn't necessarily here on the radio so it's a little it's a little public service campaign and it starts today looking for Christmas segregation from the Jewish guy sitting across the table. What we do want to go with Christmas in Hollis? Could we walk me break out a little run DMC what Christmas. That's one of the. That's one of the fifty. They get played on the radio. Although I will say. That's actually a good. He's a good song. But you know I suggested before maybe something from the new letters to Cleo EP. which is a Christmas album? We'll check the Austin band where Botha fans of but we But we also so Mix It up when it's Hanukkah we play Hanukkah tunes so so we'll see that's going to be happening all month long but unfortunately Klein is not going to be here all next week. You can find him somewhere in the Carolinas. Doing a little boots on the ground research and casino. Thanks for being here. It's always good talking to you as always people on the program may have interest in stocks. They talk about on the Motley Fool May of formal recommendations for so by herself stocks based solely here. That's going to do it for this edition of market.
