"Actor. Steve mcqueen raise up your can't steve mcqueen. Yeah he's very well known actors really an icon. I was looking at a fashion a magazine the other day and they had a article that asks the question who is cooler steve mcqueen or james dean so they sorta checked out there fashion sense and their accomplishments and they concluded steve mcqueen was the coolest guy ever that was why mcqueen was called the king of cool. He made a lot of amazing films like the magnificent seven bullet. The greatest gate steve mcqueen was the very definition of a self made man. He rode the fastest. Motorcycles is actually a race car driver he was always on the move in in many ways mcqueen was running for his life looking for a father. Because you see. His dad abandoned him when he was a little boy in his alcoholic mother married and divorced multiple times. In stu of steve's stepfather's beat him and he was out on the streets at the age of nine can you imagine all in his own at the age of nine. He ended up in being arrested. He actually joined the circus for a time. He was searching for some kind of meaning purpose in his life. Well he took some acting classes and was pretty good at it and before he knew it he was the number one movie star and all of the world mcqueen said in an interview. You only go around once in life. And i'm going to grab a handful of it. And it was the sixties and early seventies and everything was free free drugs-free sex you name it. And steve grabbed it all and he also was the highest paid actor. In hollywood he had women had cars. He had booze. He had global fame. He money one time. He said you know what when he was asked. You believe in. God he said i believe in me. That was the way he live. Well you know what he reached the pinnacle and then he just got sick of it all and he disconnected and his doctors told him he was having some problems with his lungs and he needed to get out of la. So steve moved away in nineteen seventy and tried to start a new life in a little town near ventura and he married his third wife there and she wrote in a book. About steve's live steve mcqueen the last mile quote despite the worldwide fien that he had and the fact that he never financially wanted for anything. A certain piece at alluded steve. For most of his life he had seen and done at all in this fifty years earth but there was one thing he didn't have and that was the one thing he wanted most inner peace so steve disconnected from the whole hollywood world and he bought an airplane hangar and filled with all of us super cool restored motorcycles. But there was one thing he never learned how to do. And that was fly so we went and bought a vintage plane known as a stephen by plane and he has some of his friends who could teach him how to fly it and they said there's one guy a guy named sammy mason. Who's in his mid sixties. Sammy a former test pilot for lockheed. It has stunt pilot so stephen. Sammy's spent a lot of time in the cockatoo. That plane as steve mcqueen was learning to fly and they talked about life and the meaning of life. And steve notice something different about sammy and he said semi woods about you. That's different semi said steve. It's my relationship with jesus christ so mcqueen was in three semi said steve. Why don't you come and join me. Church much through a surprise team. Queens showed up at church and the pastor whose name is leonard. Dewitt knew that the famous movie star was in this church but he told people just leave them allow. Let them just come and they did. And one day pastor went. And i know this because i found pastor to win i was reading this story and i thought i wonder if this guy is still alive so we tracked him down. I got him on the phone and he already knew me because we did a crusade up in ventura near whereas and he said yeah we helped you in the crusade. Oh well we had a nice talk. And i said tell me about what happened. Was steve mcqueen. He says greg. I was standing around after a sunday morning. Someone taps on my shoulder. I turn around there. Steve mcqueen he says pastor. I wanna talk to you. I'm going to ask you some questions. So leonard said okay. Come on tomorrow and steve came in. He said we had to do a three hour conversation. And steve had a lot of questions. And and i asked leonard the pastor will what were his questions. He said well he wanted to know. What is god really like this. God really forgive sin. No wonder stephen tried it all drugs. Booze had the coolest machines ever so pastor. Dewitt entered steve's questions and then steve said good. I'm i'm good now. You answered all my questions and then the pets are still reliable. Question for you steve. Steve smiled and said you wanna know if i'm born again right and the pastor said yes steve. Mcqueen said yes past her. I'm born again. I went forward at one of your invitations. A couple of weeks ago and made my commitment to jesus. Christ lot of people don't know this story. The king of cool med kreis and everyone who knew. Steve centers tranferred. Transformation was immediate and dramatic. He spent hours poring over his bible and frayne was bringing all the members of his family to church and bringing friends to church and trying to right wrongs for all the things he had done in his life and it was an amazing thing. Steve wanted to know maury as if the past would be with them. Every week. seems that. I don't wanna get on a soapbox and talk about this before i know more about it so it's was growing and he continued to grow spiritually for a year but he wasn't feeling well when he was working on one of his last films. The hunter so we went to see his doctors and they broke the tragic news. Steve you only have months to live. You have incurable cancer. And it's spread throughout your body. So steve told the pastor. And steve said you know what now that amac christian really wanna live. And if i don't make it. I know where i'm going then. Mcqueen said the only regret. I have as i was not able to tell. People would christ did for me so i just wanted to right that wrong until you. What christ did for steve mcqueen tonight. He saved them and forgave him of all of his. Sin steve ed. One wish he knew he was going to die. He has to pass through gca. Have billy graham come visit him. Pastor dewitt knew some people that work with billy and and the great evangelists came to visit steve mcqueen and was on oxygen at this point. And billy said there was a sparkle in steve's blue eyes and and he was so responsive telling me of how christ it changed his life and then steve is going to go in for surgery for a very large tumor and he had misplaced his bible. And billy said here take my bible and so he gave his bible to stephen signed it. Steve went in for surgery. And they remove the tumor but then when he was in recovery. He died of a heart attack. They found steve mcqueen. Lying there with billy. Graham's bible.

"There. This is charlie hedges. And you're listening to the next chapter with charlie and my very special guest is attorney theresa mcqueen who is so experienced and and really not a renegade but she has her own views of what what happens between client and move became. The relationships in courtroom were outside courtroom. And i wanna pursue. Something theresa is known for on her show. That just so intrigued me. That said i have to. This is why. I had to have therese on the podcast right now. Theresa i wanna have a bit more of an intentional discussion on a subject that has lost in our country. Today's totally lost in our country. Today and we and we need it desperately and that is the idea of ken. We just be nice. I was led to believe that you say in trial work or in depositions are in whatever. You're doing that if people were just nicer. You wouldn't have a job and that will never happen because first of all you'll always have a job and second of all people are not going to be nice. But i would love for you to talk about. What does being nice mean to you on that civility side of things that the nice factor is sort of interesting. I think when. I was litigating. My my feeling was people had just shown more civility professionalism respect for the person that they were dealing with. I think that Things would have been different. I could see how things would go differently as far as being nice. It's it's a good way to put it I kind of laugh. Because when i do civility training i ended up saying at some point like i'm not the nice police and i'm not here to tell you to be the nicest person who really really because you know. I'm an attorney. I can't always be the nicest person in the room. But what. I can always be always strive to be is professional and civil courteous and show. Respect to the other person again simply. Because it's you know that's my work environment. I wanna make sure. I have a work environment. That i can that i enjoy working in and if i have at least professional relationships with.

Their whole platform is falling apart and we got to see our former president barack hussein in his global warming beachfront home. That's not a good investment if you believe oceans are going to rise. Spent twelve million a peach ronald but anyway. When barack hussein had his no mask celebrity will raise the roof party and it was caught on social media. what they thought was quickly deleted. But as you know nothing's really deleted social media some dude out there somewhere eating cheetos watching golden girls and two o'clock in the morning screen cabinet and it's it's it's living on so the people who are like. Oh wear masks staying. Don't come out get in get down. They're all out there. You know eating steak and chicken at their vegetarian. Dinners with once again. That doesn't make sense wearing hawaiian.

"It's just nice to feel part of a brand like just like you know wearing the stuff or playing the stuff like i'm our old brand and representing those brands the best icon but yeah it said it. Social media is ever changing but yeah. It's exciting to now as of a few weeks ago. I'm like phil tying night doing it and doing sushmita consultancy on the site as well which is really terrifying. That really exciting. The same experience with it right. And so yeah. Obviously it's a new venture so it's has a little bit of scared you know mentality behind. They're a little bit but at the same time you know what you're doing you've obviously had a very successful run with it so far like when you talk about. How brands kinda got behind what you do right. That's kind of like the big token is like you don't have to change who you are to accommodate somebody else in. That's you know. I get the question a lot. 'cause of as a teaching product we'll brand new played. It's like well you know. I had i had my druthers. I have paid for by Whatever right and again. Since i chose i've had a chance to go to other companies and i just can't say the rep for tailor made and i we could be. We could be brothers like we get along super well so this point you know. It's not about that. it's about my relationship with darren. And darren takes care of bicol. Darren darren make sure i get what i need right and so when you start building these relationships with the brands that you're apart of you know what is it that you enjoy the most about you know not say give it back to them but your role in that relationship. The support i love. The i'm part of a team. Like i love that feeling about the creative process so trying to come up with unique ways that i can showcase the brands..

I think i have to talk about why artists important to me and as an art historian a. I have a specific perspective on this to me. It's important because it catches a difference sometimes contradictory snapshot of a moment in time like the history books. They record one thing but our can tell us something else. And art can convey the feeling. And i think that's what we've been talking about quite a bit. The feeling the mood and the executives of a period in time more so than any text or historical time line can so i would say is important to me because it completes the pitcher and and it shows the human in history on my goodness.

"Lightweight. So disturbing to us. That certain it's kind of like for me reminds me of when when you watch something like completely lower the toll when something like this morning and and people you know and they bring on. Robots are Weird six does on mix you. They're still realistic. It just doesn't set with you so interesting to unpack the idea. I love that the uncanny valley it sounds like to visit. Wouldn't you oh yeah a retainer vying think everyone would leave villa of post traumatic stress disorder with that was a weird one but this is what i mean about the layers. So if you think about this particular piece. We've got his inspiration. From rebecca we go the uncanny valley whether he intended that or not he's detonates tapping into it. We have got the arts and crafts movement. I mean this is so many layers already so is this. Is this what we always fear. Is this the practice of intellectuals and historians applying all of these ideas afterwards or is this genuinely war. Mcqueen was embedding in his work. himself and i think i've got a quote here somewhere one of my notes. Hopefully i don't want to do a cocktail party. I'd rather people left my shows and vomited so he was definitely trying to trick a people but whether he was really really engaging with intellectual ideas that may never be answered that sat. And i think again it just it just comes back to to really in my opinion cement. The idea that you know the job of the artist as really to to show in their own drama wonder off the track you think some of the best most controversial pieces of art even architecture really sucked dance to the drum and that's exactly what mcqueen is doing here and for me. This is a great example. All of the story behind what you see before you and it's always so much more interesting to look beyond as i call it. Look beyond the canvas look beyond what was presented. There's a whole realm of possibilities in and this is just an one interpretation over the be someone that watches this and says oh my god is clearly this and this is the people you know. There's there's no right or wrong answer. Here is just everyone china again. Supply just trying to kind of figure. I don't know like what's in comfortable but so uncomfortable at the same time like wondering and trying to stop unpack and unpack. Well i think the slight difficulty with on picking and packing a little bit like the magician telling you how he didn't the trick thing if someone hadn't seen this particular finale number thirteen finale shallow hollow and would hear this podcast i. They might not feel as old or surprised as someone. Who hadn't i think he kind of need to come to it. Unencumbered and you know and then find out you know. I'm taking afterwards because you want initial russia. What am i seeing. What is it's the same. I mean one of the closest experiences. I've ever had to the day when i saw the youtube video. Mean feel ridiculous thing to emotional church like experience watching youtube but i did but i hadn emotional church experience when i went and saw the rothko paintings in tate. Modern in that subdued room. Do you know the wasn't talking about. S is for me the same experience and and we all encounter are in different ways. But i had a very visceral emotional reaction to these dairy oppressive very dark strangely intangible paintings hanging on the but they feel like they could be ten feet on the other side the wall but they also feel like they could be ripe against your face something about them yukon quite ascertain where they are in your realm does not sound really esoteric. No i think it's such an interesting an interesting way to look at rothko for example. Because he's somebody who i don't know he leaves me a bit. Cold again are so are so subjective. Like and i think that's an that's amazing that you've had that expedients with us. I've had it with with other paintings. Where i've just been so pulled over and you can't quite put your finger on one as a them. I'll be honest with you. It's only those painting. Move me now. See the yellows greens. It's it's it's it's even more than just personal to me. It's it's personal to to make in that situation with those paintings but be interested will will painting moved you in a similar way over artwork. So i've had. I've had a fear of these of a penny moments as i call them. I've had one with right. So this is not the based sculpture of ever seen in my life. But it says a sculpture by an artist's code philip jackson and he's actually based on one for having the war memorial at hyde park. And it's this almer pilots that are kind of of an uniform. So he's known for these he. Does these really very weird is going to sound odd. None sculptures on the kind of look like something a doctor who on there's this other worldly quality to them and i don't know if it's because i was brought up as a practicing catholic. They meet me really uneasy. And i'm so hideous by them. It's horrible parallel. But in the film death becomes her. And there's a scene died in the mortuary where three nuns just glide down the corridor and in the entire film. It's probably one of the more. I connect spooky moments and philip jackson's three nuns sculptures together. Remind me of that particular moments of this definitely in an uneasiness to them. If if my brain is going straight to my other uneasy memory from from one of my favorite films than i can totally understand that sense of ood. That's giving me a chill because sometimes what you want from art. You wanted to release it and emotional response. Well that's it and much like you're the roth goes at t. These these nuns. They're you know they're they're above life size that two meters or something and they demand attention and the the are the authority and their space on you. Just have to kind of boating. Almost there just for me anyway. So powerful when. I don't know and it's the first time really. I've had had had an experience like that. And it's actually kind of like me on my. I'm i work in a sculpture gallery. So that actually can sit me on my trajectory of sculpture. This is my jam and yet just thought expedient for me was so powerful and it stays with me and it's something that's not really happened too much. Maybe one other time. But when i saw beavers painting by sudha at and at the national gallery but i think i had that because it was the first painting ever or bright when i was fourteen.

"Completely here you go. i'm speechless. I can't even take a breath and even we've seen this and again it's just one of the will powerful and it's the moment that you say it in for me. I was like has this completely bypassed me. It's incredible. But i think it does bypass people because it seems to live in the realm of fashion and the two thousand fifteen exhibition of savage beauty obviously was in new york inherent in london as well and helped move mcqueen from the realm of fashion into maybe the consciousness of art and so i've been exchanging book. That wasn't the presentation themselves. I think what interests me is is if you look at won't presentation look at two presentations. Look more looking for us from two thousand one you start to realize the the clothes were secondary. This was performance art. This is performance art. The is that with abramovic. You know this is someone who's really making a statement through performance. The is in dialogue with over art forms with culture with history. When people don't know about this there that's fine you know. It seems to belong to the realm of fashion. But you know. I ryan paper like this with the goal of hopefully changing people's minds and relocating to the despair of arts absolutely and it should be in and just like what you said. There is in this sort of rail again. Fashion very much like are kinda suffers from this 'gate-keeping aspect that is only for people with money. Or if you're cut from a certain cloth and it's not about a toll like fashion and itself whether you buy from each primorac or you know talk designers your way of performing arts every you know it's as your own performance are and i think from mcqueen heat is just such an interesting character. Hans down an artist he and credible so powerful so moving. And i just can't thank you enough for this paper on yeah. I just couldn't wait to talk to you about. This is just so interesting. Oh you're welcome. I mean it was an absolute pleasure like the studies journal. Weather papers published That they were really supportive as well. They were very interested in it. They actually modified my original pitch so it was the sublime and the melancholy in mcqueen. So there's a whole other area devoted to the melancholy unpacking. That got a whole podcast in its own right and a whole of philosophical field that recall get into but it Maybe mcqueen is data recognizable his melancholy. Because there's a sadness to a lot of his shows The damn blue when His mental isabella blow died. The whole show is very toned with this melancholy than of kohl's and this the widows of collage in which i know you like that finishes with a pepper's ghost holograms. Some people. call is of kate. Moss and floating apparition like inside a pyramid and that you know it really does the folk that feeling of melancholy light sublime is one of these philosophical ideas set between two clear distinct feelings. So it's got by interesting tension again whereas sublime sits between maybe horror and pleasure and the melancholy sits between happiness and sadness it's that reverie you're looking back on a memories of your childhood and your sad but they make you smile at the same time and so i think these two philosophical ideas the sublime in the melancholy on really interesting when found in arts way more interesting room found in fashion that is melancholy wail for alexander mcqueen it really like the sublime in the melancholy do go hand in hand with has presentations and has collections but you know mcqueen himself famously took his own life very sadly in two thousand ten he was very troubled and it was well known he was also in the realme fashion there s a lot of issues and of course arts and the need the need to be addressed lot of mental health issues and i think mcqueen just really has particularly the windows closure for me the embodies the idea of of longing and sadness and our cautious think it's fabulous it's wearing your heart on your sleeve isn't it it's like we're different artists sometimes the best artist of the ones who who who put it all out there everyone to say in for example and and you get a real sense of of that feeling in the art work and i think mcqueen was a very very good example of that but through so many extra liars i mean one of the things i definitely wanted to talk about which i think i should bring up now. Is this mind boggling. Idea of why. The robotic arms all the gangs in rebecca horns high noon high moon. Sorry why they make us uncomfortable. What is he tapping into the kind of triggers that strange feeling in fighters. And it's really interesting because it's actually being written about by a japanese professor as elliot's nine hundred seventy and it's professor masahiro mori and it's called the uncanny valley and i think it's something that we should all know because we all we all know this feeling but we probably haven't had put into words and the uncanny valley is essentially when any kind of machine or maybe a computer program all or maybe a graphic in a film for example when it's not realistic when it looks obviously deficient hope when all of it we kinda chocolates it and say that stupid not convinced terrible graphics in eight films. It just doesn't really do it for us. But then it gradually gets more realistic like the case of the robotic arms. They move so lifelike like this. There's an interior dialogue that thinking and the more something becomes attuned to what we consider realistic. Human behavior. the more uncomfortable we become with it. So think about when you're watching gain. Cgi in the movies. You're watching a film can't work out what's wrong with someone's face. It doesn't look real but it doesn't look artificial either and it distracts you. It takes you out of the moment and you find yourself going. What's going on with that person's face and then in the next scene. That face sprouts horns or something you realize it was. Cgi all along. But it's not moment when we can't quite tell it's real or not real. The called the uncanny valley and in robotic computer theory terms. It's a moment where human beings are repelled by something they automatically dislike. Mcqueen is playing with the idea. So rebekah horn something that is inorganic behaving in an organic human.

"Painters and he's probably more for romantic and the idea toppling the sublime book. Yes were both that both philosophies essentially on they and i think in the nineteenth century because a lot of crossover between the sublime and romantic and it's all about feelings and then we we can pitch victorians. Now you know everything's about. How do you feel about this being moved by that. And that's that's what was concerning to them. That was what was of interest to them. And let you said he ties in very nicely to the whole idea of romanticism. And the idea of the supply which of course was was a movement off reminding thinkers of painters and writers philosophers but direct influence on the work and influence of alexander mcqueen when he was at university. Well you see. That's that's an interesting point water it. There's no evidence suggests that this particular painting wonder of folk was even seen by mcqueen or whether mcqueen was thinking about the supply in fact the first time i encountered the words sublime in relation to mcqueen walls andrew bolton the vienna curator that did the savage and beauty show when he he essentially built the exhibition around the ideas of the sublime as an object so he was looking at the fashion garments and saying that they was sublime. But if you really read carefully what he said you you feel like it's sublime lights. He's not really a government struggles to be sublime to move you the same way as maybe a thunderstorm painting might so i became interested in the idea of will if there is sublime in mcqueen and i don't agree with andrew bolton that it's in the garment where is it and i believe it was in the performance is in the action and that kind of takes us to a new territory of the formative sublime which is far less written about book. You know like all these things. The sublime starts in literary criticism it moves into that takes. Why the hell concert performances sphere. It makes sense well that set and if anybody has seen a mcqueen catwalk show you our complete awestruck that s incredible and as a performance and itself some of his things that he managed to do and it was the thing that people craved fashion week when mcqueen was was alive and doing his shows he d he was known for these. Very performance based theatrical. Metrical his inspirations so varied one thing that kind of tickles me is this one particular show. That was Inspired by the chest scene. In one of the harry potter films us quite mundane and an overstaffed. And then there are shows inspired by the highland clearances. which is so intellectual and historical. So there's definitely and a lot of different. Inspirations going on is as much as it's hard to say he was inspired by the sublime he certainly was inspired by pieces. That are in dialogue with the sublime and one of those pieces. Which are we going to talk about. Is rebecca horns high. Moon the kinetic sculpture that she made must see. I had never. I had never come across the sculpture. Before until i read your paper and i think it's something that will haunt my dreams forever. If i'm perfectly honest with you at such an uneasy peace to sort of look at but then when you when you read into it so interesting and i think rebecca german performance conceptual artist. She's all about the idea of body. And how you can transform it and ways of pushing the limits of that and the piece is so so incredible amd you wanted to scrape out. I mean you really need to say and you need to ideally see in action but hopefully this description will suffice essentially hanging from the ceiling of the gallery to winchester rifles which aw themselves connected via plastic tubing too big vats of red liquid and the red liquid is feeding from these bats. The formal like can shape and clear glass. The red liquid feeds through these tubes to the guns and the guns intimately squirts the red liquid at each teacher so far it sounds so silly but it happens at irregular intervals and finally there is a trough along the floor of the gallery but is catching some but certainly not all of these sprays that are going out the place. It's sexual and violent. That's what is interesting about this particular sculpture and it walks this line between tension and release. It's kind of creepy and weird. And there's this organic element to the red liquid Inorganic element to the guns. That i think kind of gives us that sense of them of where does the human and went to begin in violence and obviously the sexual connotations are admissible very different from her work as well which usually about extending the human body or changing the body in some way. It's like here she has. I mean she did this. With law at kinetic sculptures. She has totally removed. The person from it is equal. But it's definitely you get a sense of and i think this is the other interesting. I did that relates. High moon to the finale of mcqueen's number thirteen shirt is the the something Mechanize something unnatural. But it's given human qualities in in this case it's the kind of Squashing of the liquid at intervals which which is not that tick tick tick tick of a machine. It's broken into people's that feel kind of organic or natural although inexplicable yeah. That's i love this idea of looking at it. And they send the almost human and machine have become one on like we've kind of the human has dissolved. And you know. Maybe it's a conversation about how humans are being replaced by machines or our dependency on machines and that can that can mean and violence and only sorts of connotations off. That really is quite an awe inspiring. Thank you really delve into it. I don't know have you. Have you ever seen it in real life. No are went to an exhibition of her work in this one of the pieces the watson there to interestingly go the way you described it is it's quite clear the 'cause alex macqueen did see this pace and it's it's on record inspired by it. The finale of number thirteen but by whole presentation whole catwalk show was about the arts and crafts movement and it was about this tension between the machine made. And how may and you you intuited that when talking about high main so you could see how alexander mcqueen intuited the same thing and kind of went down the same paths men creating his collection but it so evident with the finale of number thirteen. Which i mean. If you're happy to go ahead describe that yeah. No absolutely so. I think it'd be really great if you could say c. Naturally of what the shore was a bow and because like you said it was within the woke show was all about the arts and crafts movement which people listening. Don't know what the as at some it was. A movement founded by william morris and it was all about the truth was and it was this group of artists that wear rebelling against the industrial revolution almost done and Celebrating the made and it was all about truth to materials on. Mcqueen has carried that through with his this incredible shortage..

"And a half to thank robert. He's completely opened my eyes to the wonderful water of alexander mcqueen who somebody of course i knew it wasn't until reading roberts. Paper is sat down and watched one of mcqueen's catwalk shows for the first time and it took me di ness unbelievable rob hall presentations on shores. And before i knew it knew two hours going on it was just amazing on great. Nothing so setback and relax And i discussed. Alexander mclean and the sibling. So we're going to talk to you about alexander mcqueen on the sublime by have to ask. Where was the first time you came across alexander mcqueen. Can you remember well. I think it's not going to be. The most exciting story is just on youtube I was obviously aware of alexander. Mcqueen probably seen pictures in magazines things like that but as actual cat walk all the presentations that he did. I have to say. I was not aware until one day on youtube. I happen to see the finale all number. Thirteen the The show we're going to talk about with shalom harlow. In the two robotic arms and eight stopped me in my tracks and had a massive influence and led to me essentially watching every every walk of mcqueen's until a pretty much still do it now for closure is that no no told because it's exactly and what your paper made me when i read through i was like why have i go to Never very much like you. i attended event. I'd never really so the alexander mcqueen rabbit hole and what character or performer or a designer amazing. No absolutely i mean looking into his personal stories. Obviously palm positive researching something like this and this amazing quotes from him. His life story is very interesting and and he. Sometimes we think about fashion as something removed from art and that may be intellectuals come along and then they superimpose this intellectual idea over the fashion and it was never intended by the designer but that was not the case with with mcqueen. He was really conceptual in his thinking. He would often start by thinking about his show before he designs the garments for it so it was essentially mcqueen was by any other name. He was a former artist and it just happened to be. The media was the fashion industry was almost like it was a happy accident. Had no agree more with your i. Just thank when. I would seriously encourage everyone listening to one lesson to this to go away and watch some of his catwalk shores. Well of course link the show that were going to talk about in the show notes. Below as where it was all the images that we reference and they'll be available to view on my website and on my instagram page. But he he really is a performance artist. He the whole thing that we're gonna talk to d- as the idea of alexander mcqueen and the sibling and i think my question to you is the sublime seems to be this huge big words and our historical terms that can mean so much and really high began to break that day and so what yes well encounter the sublime first of all probably the same places. Most people when someone's talking about amazing food supply this coffee is sublime i think in modern parlance the word sublime has got a really is lost. His teeth it's really muted term. But you can take the philosophy and you can take the main the sublime and can go all the way back to the first century. Ad and it was originally a greek work of literary criticism that was concerned with the sublime in rhetoric. In writing how good writing has the power to move. Someone really engage and moved reader or listener words being spoken. So that's the first hand. Reference is the reference we have to the sublime as philosophy but then if we fly forward to the eighteenth century all the philosopher edmund burke explored the sublime but he switched to aesthetics and he declared the beautiful is that which is well formed and pleasing to the eye whereas the sublime is something that promotes and i quote feelings of all mixed with pleasure. And that's the key difference here. Beautiful is beautiful. We understand what beats police but the sublime is something else. I'm breakdown his quote feelings of all mixed pleasure. I would say all that's appealing and pleasure. That's a feeling so if it's this mixture then the sublime exists in the space between the two feelings and that's what makes it really interesting this attention that it's neither one nor the other and i want to clarify what i mean by all. This is all like. Oh that's amazing. This is all like it's terrifying. Something kind of fiery the the most common example is the painting wandera above the sea of fog by caspar. David friedrich and this is one way we think about the simple and there are. There are others but essentially. It's the idea of something that sold fast. Probably nature like a giant storm cloud the thunderstorm of volcanoes erupting the in its presence we become very mortal we realized our life is finite and we all maybe terrified the sublime brings this other element of safety and security where you're in you're encountering this also thing that has the power to destroy you but you are safe. It's essentially the roller coaster with the seat belts. You know you're in danger but you know you're safe and it's not feeling of exhilaration danger but also security the is what really the sublime is at its core about the loss of the spine. So how does the sublime get into arts. No one has a roller coaster. Experience an art gallery or do they. Well that's the thing. And i think like you said caspar. David friedrich painting as kind of really the perfect example of that. It's wayne you encounter piece that completely moved in just for anyone. This is such an iconic piece within the history of art and is probably something that you do to name but you will definitely definitely knew it to see it so just to describe it for the listeners as this gentleman that standing almost on a rocky cliff edge and he looks onto this past landscape of fog and there's this enormous sky and the figure is facing has back as to viewer on looking onto this expansive future nothingness and complete mystery of what's before him. I was just going to say that. Caspar david friedrich walls essentially a landscape painter which sounds like the the dolans of the art history spectrum except the way he painted was really caught sensitive immense vast skies that were quite overwhelming. And i almost think wander. Focus is a poor example of the kind of painting he did. But by inserting the the man on top of the rocks over that kind of funky landscape where where everything is a bit of a mystery. Because you don't know what's on the other side of that. He kind of ticks all the boxes that make the sublime so it technically is sublime but i sometimes i have to say. I hate to be critical. Do not think necessarily warrants the sense of what how the some of his paintings do but it definitely takes the boxes and it's become this thing it was actually largely ignored. Celebrate the nineteen fifty so it was painted in eighteen eighty and it wasn't until an art historian started writing a vote in nineteen fifty and the tala in hamburg and snow become less like go to painting. People must see but yeah you're right. I must be honest casper future. I don't know a horrendous amount about him but he does fall into the romantic of.

"Okay I. Stop Word on the street is came and Connie has had an exotic getaway with all of their kids to work on their marriage. Of course, we are rooting for them but this is a move lots of stars have done. With mixed results in the past, do you guys think couples know deep down if they're gonNA, make it before they go on these trips or do they just convince themselves that the trip is going to help and they're gonNA work now I think they go like they go intention of it being you know helpful beneficial but I think you know sometimes you go with the Kevin shoot ever like plan something to the t. like vacation or something and everything just completely goes wrong. So you go yeah. Intention of having an amazing time and then you're like Oh, this is a nightmare. Happens I mean I went on a trip you know at a point in my last relationship where I thought Oh we'll get. We'll have a weekend away. It'll be a nice distraction but I knew that was over. Over I think certainly with Brad and Jen when they went on the trip, mean Brad New I'm different out of the marriage because Indian is waiting for me. So I think in this case I think it's a real effort and I think that these two. Are Working on their relationship these celebration vacations that people go on. Solving. Feel like. Hashtag. So Schmidt shirts salvation vacation. I think that if you're going to go on that either you guys go in with this intention of fixing it or really is that last like Lettuce Ryan Save this. But if you're just going in to try and like you don't really WanNa fix things because you know deep down if it's for over one hundred. Going and you know it's over it's just you stuck in a room with less distractions and you're forced to like deal with those things you don't like anyway. So. Really ought to me you gotta be ready to work or thinking. I'm going to do everything one last time I'm going to get one last hookup in I'm going to get you know one last hugging. The other person is thinking I, want to try to save this. So you know you have to go in with the statement engines. Meanwhile, Kylie is thriving as all know it is her twenty third birthday today and we show many questions I mean what the Hell is this I'm GonNa ask you because I don't think you care that much about flowers. Would you this flower display this sort of bizarre flower display or do just want some normal roses? It looks like upside down pineapple. No I No and House. Yeah. I watch. This in my house is taking up the whole first floor like. She has a house big enough to hold it but like this is not going to work in my house in two miniature versions, it's really impressive. If just consider how many flowers that is the craftsmanship that goes into it. Feels like it should be at some sort of like of event like a homo. Championship, where people are walking around like there's thousands of people story she had this. Little white you're doing you're destroying hundreds of flowers. One person to enjoy maybe a few people. If it's her family, it's just a lot and can no. Aspirin and they're known for the over the top flower installations. We see them at every holiday every Valentine's Day every birthday and they're usually really beautiful. This is the first time that I'm kind of like does she like like I don't know even her style and it does now I can only see pineapple also she's sending these to herself right? Like we don't think someone sending them to her. It's not like with she knows her cell like she I think she I don't think she's sending them to herself I. Think She's setting these things up and she's like mom it's my birthday and I need to have a happy birthday Kylie by the pool. Like this standard this is like brushing your teeth rally you would send your own like Happy Birthday, Senate Oh. I am that desperate I. Don't know why you think I'm not like I as McQueen of just doing anything to make myself looked a little more love look. Yeah. No I would do it anything. You'll see. Meanwhile and everybody was going crazy over Cardi me and meg. Song Walk, which stands for I'm just kidding, but it's not all good. Some critics want to ban the song saying it's too sexually explicit vile and quote sets the entire female gender back by one hundred years. So dots on this guy's what he thinks about this. A both. For those that don't know. Stands for what? Is. but in terms of their argument at this is setting the female gender back one hundred years. The female gender was way far back on hundred years ago, and it wasn't because they were embracing their sexuality and taking control their own bodies because other people aren't doing it. So if anything's GONNA, take the female gender one, Hundred Years Back. It's someone telling women what to say and do like they're doing right now.

"Saving face still feels to me like a genre of one in so many different ways. And that's not really a great thing in that you would think that after saving face the world will be filled with Asian American Lesbian Ron. Calm but the fact is the way that you the way that you actually told that story still to me is unique and has been until. I watched your second film. Thank you so. I'm glad you see a similar DNA. Because I think they're quite different films in that. I'm always worried that people who are like I love saving face are going to be deeply disappointed by this one because this is not saving face to. It's actually genre wise. It's actually quite different but I also very I've been told I've a very specific voice and so it's possible that that voice just comes through and both it's it's not just the voice I think but it's also things tangling with in this this larger notion which I think. We'll talk in more depth about of the layers intersectional layers. I think of what it means to be Asian American to be a woman to be not just heterosexual right. These are things which I think are pop. Culture hasn't done a great job of converging right and telling stories that are appealing to to a mass audience and I think he really successfully did that and saving face. I think you've done that here. It is very different but I think those are what make so necessarily that. You've told another story if you will how well thank you?

I really appreciate that like you have no idea how much it's meant to me I it's funny because I I mean I knew. There's like a small very very rabid fan base for saving face but I always assumed it was really small like it's like all right me my friends. Everyone Dave dated. Maybe everyone those people have dated. And that's probably and then like that's ninety five percent of it and then like five percent or like creeper white guys you know and that's probably like the band base but the I do feel like one thing that was shocking to me is when as film got announced. It just seemed like a crazy number. People came out of the work to be like that. You know I've been waiting for another Mike. You have like what I didn't even know this this and And I probably honestly is probably better for me. I didn't know that because I think it would have freaked me out. I think it's the Best I. I'm a big fan of low expectations. I think the lower I can keep people's expectations the better for me but I think that You Know I. It's just interesting because I I mean I don't know if that's just an artifact of the way I tell stories to like when you talk about the intersection -ality I wonder if it's because Obviously McQueen filmmaker. I'm an Asian American filmmaker. And you know I spoke. English is my second language like there's all sorts of things but because they're just part of my life. I think my treatment things is that I don't I don't treat it so previously like it's going bleed like I'm a big fan of subtlety and nuance and so I kind of love it. When like you know like I I try to write characters specifically as I can because I wanna make them feel human But when I wake up in the morning I don't think Oh. Gosh another day to combat homophobia or another day to like deal. Although these days if I go on twitter I do think conversation hike but like left wound vices like I wake up. I'm just like okay. I have to get up. What are the things I have to do? Which is like pretty much like everybody else right and I think that is a little bit of the philosophy that I right behind. Is that the textures of a character. Argh going to come out especially in the directing. Because I'm the way I cost him the way I choose to frame them like there's all sorts of stuff that goes into that but my goal is to in a weird way. Make people that. Maybe you don't normally see or you don't have in your own life but make them feel incredibly human and accessible to To you and so I don't know I that might just be A. I wonder if that's what your your reacting to. I think I think it is. I mean I think that there's something that comes from authenticity right and as it appears on screen that even in telling stories that might feel familiar otherwise I feel very different. To some people. Right like to your point there are you know kind of a creeper white dudes. We're probably watching it saying okay. Wait for them to kiss. Whatever I can't imagine that anybody who watches wouldn't wouldn't ultimately be absorbed and taken somewhere different from where they began. I I mean I remember the first time I saw it I didn't know what to expect. And after seeing it I I just knew that it was It was a film that I think would change. People change

Beastie Boys Made a Movie. We Made a Beastie Boys Podcast.

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this. Is the big picture a conversation? Show about Beastie Boys. That's right beastie. Boys made a movie beastie boys story which is directed by Spike Jones and available to watch right now on apple. Tv plus. If you're like me and worship Beastie boys you need to watch this movie later in the show. I'll be talking to add rock. And like diaw Beastie boys about their movie history their favorite fruits. How they're doing in quarantine. The New York Knicks documentaries that they want to see a bunch of other stuff as I tried to keep them focused on our conversation. A really love these guys beastie. Boys are my favorite band ever and it isn't even really close so to talk about them before we get to them. I asked the VIC Ferrari to my Alessandro Allegra. Join me it's Chris Ryan. Hi Chris. I've always seen myself more as a Nathan Wind Guy. I've been waiting my whole life to do this. Podcast so let's go. I'm very glad you're here with me. I can't think of anybody else. I'd WanNa have here other than you. Except maybe Mike the Inadequacy and they're coming later. So when I say beastie boys what's the first thing that pops in your head Chris? Probably the invention of cool so I think one thing that we've talked about a lot over the last twelve to eighteen months. We've had a lot of Quentin Tarantino podcasts. We've we celebrated a lot of his movies on the watchable. We talked about them on. Big Picture Podcast with him and something that comes up. Ally is kind of how he gave us a vocabulary or language to through which to understand culture and understand the world and I think the Beastie boys are equally responsible for that in both of our lives in terms of introducing us to so much music and so much other culture that wound up becoming just part of our like way in which we relate to the rest of the world through these like Kung Fu and exploitation movies through rap Reggae punk rock weird funk like all like it just basically made collectors and fans out of out of us at the risk of stepping on music exists. I wanted to ask you why you think you. And I to some extent to are so interested in figures who are all about basically like recombinant culture. You know who take all the disparate parts of stuff that they love and smash it all together because that is the thing that the movie and then returning to all of this music that I listened to over and over and over and over again in my life that I have thought about is like wow they really just jammed all the stuff they liked together to make something new like. What is it about that? The second part of what you said is the most important thing. Do you think about the people that we really respond to. Wu Tang clan quitting Tarantino. Beastie boys it means we're very basic very and B. It's the most important part is finding the second thing the thing that you're GonNa make out of all this shit. And that's what makes me so excited is when someone uses all these postmodern tools in these reconstructs. All these things out of this of Cultural Ephemera to say something else. Wootten Klan took all those Kung Fu movies and took all those samples but made something that could only have been made in Staten Island. You know back could only have made the music. He made with the experience that he had. And the Beastie boys could only have been the beastie boys by combining bad brains with run DMC. Yeah and I feel like it's not a mistake that so much of what we do at the ringer and so much of what you and I have been trying to do in. Our lives is basically celebrate and be enthusiastic about the things that we care about and I feel like these artists are the same way if you if you think about Beastie boys and you even look at the way they tell their story in the movie. It's just we really liked was the clash and grandmaster flash and Cheech and Chong and we were trying to find a way to make all those things make sense together and I feel the same way about what we do every day I feel about you and I love the NBA and we love Top Gun and we love. I love deb's I don't know how you feel Dad's but You know just trying to find a way to make all those things fit together so I feel like I have aped and tried to copy a lot of what those guys do. And I feel like a kinship to their their mission their creative project. Absolutely I mean like you and I don't mean to make it sound like you. And I are the Beastie boys here but you know. I think that we use the Internet the way other people would use a sampler right and we draw in all these different media. We'd take youtube videos. We take a picture and I think it was probably more the case before we started working professionally together in an editorial capacity but we would have like tumblers and blog spots and you were just kind of like throw a picture Steve McQueen up in an article you were writing about those face and it would have some sort of relationship and I think that that was our way of continuing along this tradition of mixing and matching different pieces of culture to say something about yourself. The thing that you said that I think is probably one of the most important parts of the movie that will nocco very remarked upon because a lot of it is going to be spent talking about. Yok and it should be because this is very much I think an image to him in a real moving tribute to their friend but when Mike D says in the beginning of the movie that he was just this weird kid who found the clash. Not only is that like. That's the origin story for a lot of people. Who like they find that one band? Whether it's the dead or the clash or you know run DMC. Whoever it is that makes them think that they are now. All of not alone in the world the clashes like a really really important. Template for the Beastie boys because they are basically A Crossroads Group A marketplace. At Crossroads Group. It's where all these different cultures are coming. And they're setting up their wares and you can pick and choose off these tables and then you go home and you make something out of it. And that's what the clash did too. I mean you can make a lot of arguments about appropriation. And whether or not the people who the clash were taken from or or paying homage to properly compensated for the work that they did And the same thing could go. For the Beastie boys but I think a lot more people know about Lee Perry. Because of the Beastie boys did not you know and and that's like a really really important act in culture. Everything is about timing too I think about when they hit the scene and who they were working with and on the one hand I guess there's an appropriation question. I think they've moved past that so effectively because they were just literally there with Russell. Simmons and Rick Rubin and run DMC making music together and they were a part of something that was essentially punk at the end of its first true like lightning rod phase at the end of the day and and rapid the Dawn. You know I mean. They weren't there necessarily in in the parks in the south. Bronx but you know one thousand nine hundred. Eighty three played on the radio. Yeah Yes yes. And there's that great moment in the movie where Africa is asked about cookie. Post by one of the members of the Beastie boys and you can see like they're they're they're they're in the moment and they're going to dense area and you know performing for white people introducing them to wrap it away and that couldn't have happened if they if it was just five years earlier five years later. The same is true for the class. You know it's like they arrived at a time when the world was ready to hear rock and try to play reggae. And what that means for the future reggae. There's something also about this specific approach to the world though that jumps out to me. Which is it's not. Just this is what we like. It's this is what we like and I don't care if you don't like it and I don't I actually don't care if you don't get it because when I think about the things that I knew when I first heard the band it was you could fit it inside of a very small box. I just did my cultural reference points. The music that I knew about the the records the comedy everything that they were throwing in. I wouldn't say that I discovered them because they were sampled for three seconds on a on a record on policy boutique but they were a window. You know I had never heard of Sadaharu. Oh until I heard the beastie boys rap about him you know like there's so much in their music the sampling the lyric writing even if it is in their songs are very rarely like high minded. They're not necessarily pursuits of big ideas. But they put big ideas in front of you. Just by dint of what they were interested in and I I liked that kind of take it or leave it quality they bring to it and I feel like that really comes out in the movie too. Don't you think yeah? It's only a couple of people are lucky enough to have other people care about the thing that they care about. You know you can. You can play the game and you can try. Ride the wave of what's popular at any given moment. But it's so weird because what the beastie boys did especially once they move to La. I think wound up having such an incredibly profound formative effect on all the culture that comes after it but it so it winds up being underrated as as to what a zag that was how crazy it was for those guys to be like. Yeah we'RE GONNA LEAVE NEW YORK. We're GONNA leave behind rapper. We're going to go to capitol from Def Jam. And we're GONNA work with these two producers that basically no one's ever heard of an assemble these like really out there incongruous samples to build together a new sound that we're gonNA use to define us for the next couple of decades. The only thing I wanted to talk about because I think is probably also a reason why you and I like them. Much is that and this comes across very much in the movie much

"I taught in the piece about his very confess phenomena logical filmmaker that he's very interested in the tactility of seeing and you get that particularly western deep because when it's blown up from you know super eight to the large screen then you'll very also aware the pixel ation and you have to strain really both in terms of sound in terms of vision to kind of make out what's happening. These murky figures kind of emerging out out of the darkness. And the way in which the the soundtrack subtly goes silent as they stagger around and they stop again. So you you you know you do identify. Think very powerfully with the claustrophobia. The experience of going down you know over two miles in this cage to work the coal face to extract the oil. You know. I almost sort of felt your hands. Switching the hinge of seeing too. Because you're sort of on the edge of your seat looking looking at the the the image and it's yes i mean. It is a body experience as well as you know a a sort of the visual experience and again you've got bodies of mainly black men in a precarious place play an environment. Which is which is threatening which is hostile to them. Yes it's a place of restraint you know they They are entrapped in that. And the course behind. It is the whole complex. History of colonialism sexually goes to wise people do certain jobs and new though i mean in a way that's why i think he doesn't have an agenda. I mean i think an artist who was more interested in you know the kind of in the old various political message would have gone into that mall whereas i think with mcqueen to some extent you have to work it. You have to work to get the movie to get the to get the narrative but you also in a way to work through the different layers rule there because they're in in the narrative there in the missiles and van in the different component parts of the image at anyone sort of moment on the screen..

"April twenty twenty podcast from on diplomatic. My name is george. Mela and my guest on this program is john bird who is an artist. Writer curator emeritus professor of art in critical theory at middlesex university and the apron edition of the paper john rights by the artist and filmmaker steve mcqueen who had a major retrospective at tate modern in london until the gallery was suddenly closed because of covid nineteen mcqueen who turned fifty last year had an immensely successful career by any measure since winning the turner prize in one. Thousand nine thousand nine for his early explorations of the moving image. He's gone on to direct four feature films the most recent widows and twenty eighteen and and twenty fourteen twelve years a slave for which he received the oscar for best picture becoming the first black recipient of that award but mcqueen has by no means abandoned the gallery for the movie theater as you'll hear and has his recent exhibition showed before we got onto that. I asked john to fill in some background about mcqueen's korea before the nine thousand nine hundred nine prize. He was an all student. He was a chelsea first of all chelsea school of art and then he went onto goldsmiths college university of london in the beginning of the nineteen nineties student at goldsmiths from ninety to ninety. Four as you know the goldsmiths is the school that is most closely say. Cat who became known as the y. b. as young british artists it produced quite of quite a few including damien. Hirst so he comes out of a background of officials practice. He became interested in photography and film and video work at school and that became his medium expression. I think for quite a lot about at that period of the early nineties late eighties and early early nineties. It wasn't just the film and video offered to some extent to come different way. Don't for a new way of working. It was a break with the more traditional pass activities of painting sculpting so. He did that. He had a brief period in new york. Where east of the university. But then he. He's interesting that he's work was picked up actually really quite early on. I mean i think not only when he was college but very soon afterwards in in the early nineties he was in a way noted as one of the most original most interesting students coming out of that that goes miss background and he started making black and white videos.

Olivia McQueen you walk into pants on fire. Tell us about being a teacher. Is there a certain teacher who inspired you to become a teacher? Well my aunt gets her so much off. So that's one of the things. Oh it's about the good hours and you get a lot of money and you get a lot of money for being the teacher. Oh Yeh we gotta talk about. Maybe they could make even more. That's what I think don't you think? Yeah Yeah is there a certain age of kid? You would wanNA teach maybe first grade so I don't have to a lot about award English right so you should teach and then all you don't have to know a lot about anything but I have to deal with that kids. Oh and they they. Stopping bad after preschool. Right a liberal. So I WANNA learn some more things about you. I think Lisa wants to learn more thing all my gosh I was just saying. Is there anything else about her? Lots of things so many things in fact we're going to play to truth and a lie. Olivia's GonNa tell us three facts about herself. Two of those facts will be true. One will be ally. We will figure out which one is the lie A- Libya. What are your three facts? I've been a competitive dancer for four years now. My grandfather is a famous Irish folks here in Ireland and I love marshmallows. Feels LIKE SETTING US? Up for trick. Doesn't like marshmallows. Exposes excuse trying to play Games with those? She thinks she can come in here and just pull. The wool over is our sensors. That's it. Marshmallows is ally Nice. Try Okay okay. You're trying to outsmart her gameplay Libya. Which one of those facts is ally? I Love Mushrooms Campbell today. Show you do not like marshmallows. I've a story though the story so I strap and I had a loud marshmallows to soothe my throat. And I had so much that I didn't like the money more. Oh so you overdid it on the marshmallow once upon a time you like them. Yes so not even in hot chocolate now. Would you like them on a train? I would like them nowhere. Our first expert is Lara. Night please introduce to Libya. Let me out my name is Lauren. White. And I'm actually in jeans designer. Which means I work on developing and designing sheets. Thank you very much Laura. Let's meet our second expert. Simon fastener Simon. Please introduce yourself to Libya Libya. I'm Simon Baz ner and I'm a denim influencers. We'll have to learn more about that. I'm not sure what that is or how you can influence your denim. But we're going to find out. Hey Lisa is that a bootleg copy of those sounds sounds originally sourced by me. It's actually time right. That's when we put our experts on the hot seat while they enter Olivia's questions Lisa. Who should we put on the hot seat? I Simon because I want to be an influence there and maybe if I picked him he'll tell me how to be an influence. Okay that's fair all right. Well I are you influenced. I'm an insulin. So you're influenced. Let's see how that works? Okay Olivia what question do you have for Simon to start? Simon? What's a gene influencer? Gene or Denim influence is an expert in all things denim or genes so When people are interested in What type of accessories would go with a certain type of Denham or a certain type of gene? That's where I come in and I let them know a what would go with that and be where they can get the best and most fashion forward version of that. I run a blog entitled GET THEM DENIM DOT Com. That's why keep everyone up to date with the latest denim fashion designer. So if the denim you want exists. I'll show you where to get them. Okay Laura. What is your favorite style of jeans? My favorite style of jeans is a High Rise Jack Gang. They're super soft and they're super stretchy and they're my favorite. I wear them every day. They're called high-rise. Because they go the way from your feet over your head and then the Zipper is where it opens for your face. You might be onto something. I think you're influencing LISA. I've questions for Simon. Where were the first pair of jeans? Made by WHO in the first pair of jeans were made in Italy in the town of Genoa and by and by WHO will they're made for genetic for for Genoese sailors so They were made by emend named named Lawrence Influenza. Okay Laura what made you want to become an expert on jeans while I got my first job in jeans in Los Angeles about twenty years ago and my favorite part about getting into the denim business is denim is a very specific fabric. If you don't wash it and you wear over and over and over for many years it starts taking on the characteristics of the person that's wearing that garment which is really really cool so my job is actually to recreate some of these really awesome old vintage garments. Make it new make it really modern out of new fabrics. It's so much fun in really creative sue. You're saying it's best not to wash your jeans and you are correct. Actually have a well. That depends so if you're if you're buying a really stretchy gene that means it's going to have some spandex something in it to make it really stretchy. That goes with cotton. You're going to want to be careful not to wash those james but every two or three times you wear it because that heat and a lot of water will actually give a little wear and tear on that gene so you can do some spot cleaning. Sometimes if you have a really rare pair of jeans you might want to do a couple of fun. Things like put them in the freezer. Put them on the snow hanging out to dry. You just want to be careful not to hit them with too much hot water into wash them too. Often were other than giving them a fun trip while them in the freezer well some people think it might be a wise tell but I have personally found that sometimes bacteria can grow on anything actually so when you WanNa wash something most of the time. You're not only just getting out the hot chocolate that spilled on your garment but you're actually just washing something to be cleaner when you put that in a really cold environment just like putting a rug outside in the snow in the wintertime it can actually kill bacteria that might be on that garment cool. Denver's that y your backyard is covered in rugs. I think you're at the wrong house. Lisa Oh wait Do you live in a rug store. I do not oh I was at the wrong. Okay go ahead okay. This is for both of you. What are most teams made of? Who wants to take? That sure. I'll take its motions are all denim is really is a is mostly made from cotton So I'd say cotton and then for the for the more stretchy jeans lasting or you know Three percents SPANDEX so most of the older jeans before we would say probably about Nineteen ninety-five nineteen ninety. Eight were one hundred percent cotton. Since then we've added more and more stretchy stuff that goes with the cotton which we call spandex or like war lasting that being said some jeans actually like the ones that way right now go up two hundred percent stretch so those numbers of the new fibres that you have to add to get the genes. Really Stretchy has gone up and stretch. Jeans are actually the most popular jeans right now in the market cool. Hey stretch jeans. If you're listening good for YOU CONGRATS. You did it. Or she may be stretching the Truth Laura. What are the most current trends and jeans so one of the number one trends in jeans right now? It's actually two polar opposite idea so one is getting back to a no stretch jeans or what. We call a rigid gene for women. In addition to that really stretchy high wasted jeans is also a big trend on the women's sign on the men's side. We have a couple of things coming back so we have a skinny slouch gene. Plus a little bit of puddle at the bottom. That's a cool word for a really long gene. That shows off your sneakers. In addition to that we also have the Dad Jean coming back which President Obama rocked all the

Opening Act - Rumors in Rock

"First false rumor. Did you ever hear the rumor about Keith? Moon driving a Rolls Royce into a hotel pool. I've heard a lot of stories about Keith. Moon well. He is the quintessential rock and roll guy and bad boy he definitely collected Nazi memorabilia. He may have bitten. Steve McQueen's Hog and blew up his drums win. The WHO played on the smothers brothers. Comedy Hour. I cannot wait to do his episode I am. I have like four books based on. Keith Moon I am. I am locked and loaded. I Love Keith. He is my soul. Well so those things may be true however there was a rumor that he drove a Rolls Royce into a pool at the Holiday Inn in Flint Michigan on his twenty. First Birthday. This is not true. According to Pete Townsend. The story is actually a combination of two different stories. That has become one not true rumor. So Keith Moon. In one of the stories like one of the incidents he left the Hamburg off of a car and it rolled into a pool which was under construction and to not have any water in hit home. Which would be worse though driving? Dr Into a pool with water or driving a car into a pool without water but he didn't drive the car into that. I'm just like either one either or I'm just saying like it just rolled in on its own. Which would do more damage I think you're pretty much screwed either way fair enough. The cars a loss of it goes near the pool. Yeah Okay and then so the second story that this was combined with to create the not true drove. Rolls Royce. Into a pool was that he charged new car to the band. Who refuse to pay for it. So Moon drove it into a muddy pond in his garden and call the dealer to come pick it up. So it's too true. Stories rolled into one story right. That's not true. Yeah Oh yeah. It's incredible and that's not our last Keith. Moon rumor either. Nope our next one which is true now okay. I should say with the caveat that these are true and false based on articles that we both read and so there might be room for error. So this is just like fun. Yeah it's just fun and it's inauguration. It's yeah just what we found. No one has photographic evidence. It's just fun fun so I hope you guys out. Don't get angry and you're like that never happened or that did happen bub-bubba so like don't don't get mad at us is just this is just meant to be fun and a little bit looser so and just for us to kind of talk off the cuff so Our next one. Which is true. Is All about Ozzy Osbourne. Oh my so ozzy. Osbourne achieved infamy overnight after incident on January twentieth nineteen eighty two in Des Moines Iowa during the height of his drug problem. That is putting it mildly. Ozzy Osbourne was performing when an audience member through a bat on stage. The singer believing that it was rubber and I do believe that he thought it was robbery. I don't think he would have. I believe that too. Yeah bid off its head as a stunt only to find out that the bat was real and alive not only that but as he declares in liner notes to the two thousand two reissue of diary of a madman. The Bat wound up biting him as well which forced him to be treated for rabies. The incident fed his rock madman legend along with the one time that he bit off the head of a dove which basically what happened was when he first met with Columbia records in Nineteen ninety-one. He took a live dub into the meeting with him and bit off the head in front of the horrified executives. Awful yeah so crazy man out. I wouldn't sign him to a record deal yeah. He was also arrested for urinating on. Or near the Alamo. And while on tour with Motley crue he allegedly got into a one upmanship. Dare contest with Nikki. Nikki six and I'm sorry that is at is a contest. I would never even get close to know but he ended up snorting a line of ants better than biting the heads off live animals. I think though no okay. The dove thing is kind of unforgivable. The bad thing is understandable. But you snorted a line of ants would if they were fire ants also. You just have ants in your sinuses now. I'm sad I read that. Oh my God you have to elaborate immediately regretted it I apologize. You should move on move on Thanksgiving on next all right. Here's a good one Kay cass. Elliot choke to death on a ham sandwich. Can We bury this now? Please yeah really not cool. I don't like this lie at all. This rumors terrible are you. Doing Mama Cass. Yes I am all right so this came up. Following a series of sold out gigs. In London Mama Cass retired to her apartment where she died of heart failure on July. Twenty Ninth Nineteen Seventy Four. A rumor spread very quickly that she died from choking on a ham sandwich which is just a horrible thing to say you know yes. She was a little overweight route. So it's believed that the rumor started when Dr Anthony. Greenberg the physician who I examined CASS. After her death wrote she appeared to have been eating a ham sandwich and drinking coca cola while lying down a very dangerous thing to do. She seemed to have choked on her ham sandwich. So so great job Dr Greenberg for that one. But point of fact her autopsy showed that a heart problem leading to heart. Failure was the cause of death not a sandwich or any other item lodged in her throat or trachea. She had actually had very little to eat the day before she died like her stomach was pretty clear. No dead I'm actually going to piggyback and double down on a Mama Cass and Keith Moon. True story with us. They were not but they did die in the same apartment. Yeah rockstars have been taken from US. Way Too young and it just so happens that two brilliant musicians died in the same apartment at the same age of thirty two Singer Harry Nilsson I love. That's my alarm. Every morning I wake up to his song. GotTa get out okay. If you've seen the show Russian dolls you'll know why I wake up to a song every day but He renounced his London flat to friends when he was traveling. And so on June twenty ninth nineteen seventy four Mama Cass of the Mamas. And the Papas was staying in the flat while she was on tour and died of heart failure in her sleep and on September seventh. Nineteen seventy eight Keith. Moon of the WHO overdosed on a sedative in that very same apartment which is eerie because they died in the same apartment under the same landlord at the same age. How crazy is that? That's a little

Not Surprising. And that's just those two holidays alone. That's not including you know the winter holidays including birthdays anniversaries or engagements. That's only on Valentine's Day and Mother's Day which is incredible. I had no idea. Yeah me neither. And that's actually just a small fraction of the three hundred billion dollars exchanged globally from the mining of approximately ninety million carats of rough diamonds and sixteen hundred tons of gold every single year. And of course with that colossal sum of money on the line well. Human Nature can and does falter sadly succumbing sometimes to unbridled greed and avarice often quite literally on the backs of others. How many of us have really truly considered the true cost of our jewelry. I mean we may very well recall the price that we paid for it. But what about this other price? The human and environmental cost cast in twenty eighteen activists organization. Human Rights Watch published a study which is called the hidden cost of jewelry and it highlights some really heartbreaking egregious instances of human rights abuses and environmental tragedies stemming from unscrupulous mining operations such as when in two thousand eight members of this and Bob Way military staged a bloody takeover of the diamond fields and the country's Murang`a district and they slaughtered some two hundred civilian miners for the next six years. Certain factors of the government's armed forces military and police oversaw a brutal and ruthless program of torture and forced labor including forced child labor and their class to pilfer the diamond fields in two thousand eleven. Human Rights Watch documented a pervasive program of sexual violence against workers at the hands of the private security company hired to protect the Tara Mine in Papua New Guinea. While Canadian Gold Mining Company began mining operations in the Maroteaux district of northern Uganda without even notifying or securing the necessary rights or permissions from the indigenous Karamojong community. The grim reality is that gold around your neck. The silver on your wrist the platinum on your finger or the gems in your ears may very well have come for one of these mines or others like them but do not despair dress listeners. Because today we're going to bring you an episode which hopefully informs and educates you about some of these issues that are going on in the jewelry industry and we hope to shut a light on the ever growing movement to write these wrongs and also to institute responsibility and transparency all along the supply chain in the Jewelry Industry today. We are joined by jewelry designer educator and activist. Bliss Lau to talk about ethics and responsibility in the jewelry trade and what we as a consumer can do to effect change. Bless all welcome to the show bliss. Welcome to the show thanks I'm happy to be here. Yeah we're so excited to talk about Jewelry Today. But before we delve into what? I think will be some rather surprising subject matter for a lot of our listeners. I'm hoping that you can tell us a little bit about your own background. And how did you become a jewelry designer and specifically when did you begin zeroing in on some of the problems in the jewelry industry that we're going to cover today sure I? I went to Parsons as a studied fashion design and then I actually started off as a handbag designer and I did that for several years and I used to have this handbag that had the chains down the front of it that looked like the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge and at some point because I studied fashion design. I kind of was procrastinating. And for fun I made myself a body chain with a chain that had used on my handbags and it became like a huge explosive interest in the industry. Basically like what we would call viral. Now that was actually I was viral and it was the first time I ever heard the word was when it went. Viral eventually made myself actually. My first ring was a ring called the kaleidoscope bring which is still in my collection and because I studied apparel I wanted to make a ring that referenced apparel in the sense of when you get dressed you get up every day. It's a form of identity so you choose to put on your shirt and your jacket and your outfit and is who you are and when I wanted to enter into jewelry space. I didn't want to create something. That was an imposition on your body. I wanted to create something that in that same way would give you choice. The kaleidoscope ring is one ring made a four pieces so every single day. You can choose to wear it differently and it can evoke personality. That's what I love about it. I actually am mostly a bespoke bridal designer now and I have moved into fine jewelry in around twenty fourteen and I did that because it wasn't really a plan My now husband proposed to me with a sketchbook and asked me to design my own rang and it was actually at the Metropolitan Museum at the Alexander McQueen show Oh lovely because he knows I love fashion and it was the first experience that I had in picking out a gemstone and thinking about fine jewelry and then learning about fine jewelry and eventually I stopped making costume jewelry and just fully dove into making fine jewelry and bespoke bridal so we know each other quite well so I know your work quite well. You have been struggling a lot personally with some of the ethics within the jewelry industry and this is like one of the new major directions of your work. So when did you first start becoming aware that there were problems? I mean all of us we. Everyone knows that there are certain issues when it comes to gold and diamonds and things like that but it feels like a really big idea and when it's a really big idea it doesn't feel like you can do anything and one of the things that I love about. The jewelry industry is that your industry is essentially made up of a millions and millions of independent small businesses myself included. And when I started one of the things that I did that really made me realize that I could make an impact with my design and also simultaneously made me realize how challenging it can be was

Don't Look At The Wall

The Next Right Thing

Don't Look At The Wall

"The original cars movie released in two thousand six which was also the year. Our Son was born at the time. Our girls were toddlers and I had three young nephews so we watched a lot of cars the cartoon version. This is what I'm saying with mater and DOC Hudson and radiator springs and of course lightning McQueen that all the kids called lightning the queen because of course they did about a month ago John and Lugar Son and I watched that movie and I guess I haven't seen it in a decade or so because every single song took me back to win. The kids were tiny and nobody slept through the night and it felt like. I was making chicken nuggets and applesauce for every lunch and dinner. Probably because I was my days of watching cartoon cars may have passed. But I'm still happy to listen to the sage advice of one real life race car. Driver named Mario Andretti who has been famously quoted over the years as having given some excellent racing advice that also seems to apply to life. He said don't look at the wall. Your car goes where your eyes go I. I saw this quote after about a week long bout of wrestling with some questions in discouragement. In my work yes. Y'All hi. It's me. Emily talking about my work. Mindset again seriously though. The simple racing advice really stuck with me during a week where I was questioning everything from the decor of my Home Office where I was literally looking at the walls to a more metaphorical wall gazing as I questioned the direction of my work at the time. This was actually just a few months ago. This happens every now and then for me sometimes on a more extreme level than normal. But I'll share. This particular season of looking at the wall has looked like for me. Now I would Mario Andretti said. Don't look at the wall. He said in the obviously of racing. Because your car goes where your eyes go of course if we want to more. Broadly apply that clever statement to life. The Wall could represent any number of things options. Distractions trouble you name it. I'm not saying we're never to consider our options to change course to be aware of obstacles or trouble that might come up as we make our decisions about our life and our work. Hello this is episode. One seventeen of an entire podcast about making decisions and I'm constantly. I feel like talking about perspectives weighing the options and seeing all sides of things. Of course that's important but I will say sometimes we can get so busy looking at the wall that we spend all our time there and we forget where we're actually going and why were on the road in the first place like the mom who's so worried about all the things that could go wrong when her baby goes off to kindergarten or starts driving a car or goes off to college that she forgets to be a person to take a walk to eat good food and laugh at the table and enjoy each parenting stage as it comes or like the employees who desperately wants to impress her boss or outperform. Her Co workers that she loses all joy in the work. She was once excited to show up for every single day or like the writer who becomes overwhelmed by what other writers are doing. And how they're doing it that she doesn't make the time to actually write the words that make her come alive. That will serve a reader. Well an usher light and hope into the world around her like the citizen whose so completely frustrated with the state of the world of politics that she feels powerless toward any change at all rather than seeing the small things that are hers to do and using her unique voice to make way for justice in her church her neighborhood and her city and like me. I feel like I've said this before but keep learning it on different levels so I'm gonNA share just a little bit of my own wall gazing story with you now and maybe by the end of it you'll consider yours for years years. It's all you. I have felt out of place in the stage culture. That many in my industries seem to inhabit so comfortably. Listen I don't even know if that's the right way to say that. But please forgive my lack of Separating over the perfect description right now I've got a point to make. It's not that I think it's wrong. To stand on. Stage is for real. It's so needed it's important. It is a unique calling that I respect. I just don't think it's my unique calling at least not fully and becoming more and more convinced that speaking to giant crowds from a large stage doesn't seem like the place where my most valuable contribution is offered. And this might seem like not big deal to you but for me. This has always been tension that I've held. The question has been for me. What does it look like to be an author who doesn't travel and speak on stages? This question is valid and it's important but if I let it it can become my own version of looking at the wall because instead of looking at what my work is I slowly begin to define it by what it isn't and eventually becomes a heavy burden to bear. Your car goes where your eyes go in so for the past several years. I've been learning. What does it look like to keep my eyes on the road and I've been living into the answer granted years ago at I? It honestly looked like saying yes to lots of travel and to speaking and never feeling fully like myself in that and after that it felt like saying no to most of the speaking but then kind of wondering if I was doing it wrong. I'll be honest these days. It looks like a few different things. For example it looks like hope. Writers is still does look like that serving writers online from the comfort of my own home leading in the ways that I know how stumbling through it doing it well sometimes in being really excited and then not doing it so well other times and learning as I go it also looks like saying yes when my friend tissue box and writer invited me to Co lead literary London with her one of my favorite trips ever this year. GonNa take our third group this summer to that trip which is currently full by the way next year. It's GonNa look like being a lecturer for the masters in Spiritual Formation Residency Program at Friends University. By the way if you want to hear more about that you can listen to episode one hundred where I tell the whole story and this week as this episode airs. I'm in southern California. Quietly CO leading twenty-eight hope writers through a year long mastermind cohort that we've designed especially specifically for them so I give those examples not really to tell you what I'm up to lately but just to offer some embodied real life versions of what this has looked like for me in my work to quit looking at the wall and instead keep my eyes on the road already. Don't look at. The Wall is becoming for me. A kind next right thing. Mantra and remember Mario's advice was about racing. Assuming you're travelling at fast speed and if there was ever a metaphor for the pace of our lives right now maybe a race car comes pretty close. You keep your eyes on your intended path if you want this to go well. It might be tempting to catalog all that could go wrong or all. That is wrong but it's more dangerous actually to look at the wall than it is to simply keep your eyes on the road and so this quote found me right on time at the end of last year and I'm so grateful for it. Maybe it's finding you today at the right time as well. If you're having one of those days weeks months or let's face it decades. What would it look like for you to make like a race car driver and keep your eyes on the road? What are the walls in your own work right now? What about in your relationships are their walls in the places where you volunteer where you give your time or your money. What are the walls you're facing today? Are you able to name them? Are you willing to turn your eyes of from them and focus on the road ahead? This is your invitation to stop looking at that wall and simply do your next right thing in love.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's formal step-down from royal duties is set for March 31

"The decision by Prince Harry and his wife. Megan Donncha Sussex formerly Meghan Markle to step back from Britain's royal family now a date attached to it. The couple will officially begin their new life on March. Thirty first they will live in Canada the hoop to retain the title Sussex Royal for their new ventures. It will no longer be allowed to use the honorific royal. So now they have to scrub royal from there at Sussex Royal Instagram page with its over eleven million followers and from their website Sussex Royal Dot com where they sensationally announced. They were stepping back from official duties earlier this year. Prince Harry's marriage to Meghan in two thousand eighteen seemed to herald a change in Britain's royal tradition. Megan was American an actress and women of color but press attention. The New Duchess of Sussex quickly turned ugly and at times racist in a candidate interview last year. Meghan to the pressure had gotten to her. You add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed. It's It's a very real thing to be going. Through behind the scenes to navigate the palace injury. We turn to Max Foster. Cnn's royals correspondent. He's our guest today. Max Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you sir. I want to start with the beginning with a couple when they were introduced to the British public. How were they perceived as a couple every was gripped by this story already because we all knew that? Harry has found someone and the story gradually leaked and then we started with the official sort of nobody there they had a photo opportunity Kensington Palace at your went down to and There were received with joy. I would say Harry is very often perceived as the most popular member of the British Royal Family at a lot of goodwill towards him. He's defined by that moment when he walked behind his mother's coffin every wanted him to be happy and there was this very modern woman hit net which opened up the royal brand probably too much wider audience. She was a slightly older woman who had had a career had been divorced and also was biracial. A lot of people in this country. If I'm frank early on the conversation was while she looks white but obviously then we saw images of mother and she started identify very much as a black woman so that became a big part of the story and that brought in a much wider world as well. I mean the British Royal Family in many people's eyes is seen as the ultimate white institution and in a way should broken that and I think both inside. And outside the institution that was seen as a very good thing because anti-monarchy needs to remain relevant in east harbor wide appeal and she heard singlehandedly widened. It by being who she was. But Max while there may have been a sense of her opening up the modern K. There also was a racist response. Yes so one of the early investigations on this. We teamed UP WITH SOME DATA SCIENTISTS. Who a very strong on racial abuse online their expertise and we did look quite deeply into this and there was a lot of racist abuse online and sort of things. I could never repeat and we try to get to the bottom of this because Ozzy. Harry's issue is always being the tabloids in the UK and what we identified was some undoubted sexism and I'd say probably xenophobia towards her anti-americanism. Some classes comments frowning comments on her way and the way this sort of came to the tabloids initially was some sexist narratives around etiquette so if Kate for example wore off the shoulder dress you'd be described regal. Princess was Megan did it. She'd be breaking protocol. There was this classic story where she had black nail varnish dark nail varnish remember she was Breaking Protocol Austin follow it up and which I thought was ridiculous. Yes I did and of course. There's no protocol a nail varnish in the royal family but a lot of the sort of negativity towards her was around protocol and I think that was quite loaded when you looked online a lot of these narratives were picked up by racists we. It was very hard to identify who the trolls were online. How many there were even. But they're very powerful. There were some very sort of tenuous links to white supremacy some links to the United States groups as well but this was a small part of it I think. Actually a lot of the discrimination was sort of snobbery it was sexist and often that was interpreted as racist as well. I remember when I was reporting on our survey. We interview caught a prominent biracial journalist. Here and she said is a particular issue. Someone who's biracial because they never feel like they fit in and this for Meghan would have been very painful because she's been criticized on so many levels what people outside monarchy will never understand. I don't understand it. Pretty unsettled more than most operate within the system. Is that when you Marietta? Monarchy you give up fundamental human rights the freedom to move around the freedom to vote the freedom to express yourself. You can't express yourself. You can't expressing a political opinion or support a political party because that would compromise the head of state. He's meant to be independent and have cross party support. Macon couldn't express any of her truly felt opinions. I think it's really massive sacrifice to take that role and I. You know a work very closely with William and Charles McQueen in particular and I actually really respect for the way. They've made those sacrifices and they do do it for the roles duty above self all the time. There's a point where Prince Harry actually has a bit of a breaking point with tablets doesn't he? He's had it several times before and after occasion as well. Hari is deeply scarred by his upbringing. If you look back at some of the images Diana you'll see her going up to cameras pushing them away from the kids that didn't have the protections they have now that walk down the street have talk of his all around them. And Harry spoken openly as has William about how they would have to comfort their mother because of the sort of media pressure shoes under and there was lack of sympathy as well because she caught it the media. He's deeply scarred by that. And recently he spoke to it and told them that every time he hears a camera flash or click. He's reminded of his mother's death. They literally blame the Paparazzi specifically for the death of their mother. This is something that's deeply entrenched in Harry Psyche. And it's a mental health issue for talked about that and he hasn't a resolved it so that's where that comes from with him. I was also in Afghanistan with him. I didn't do the interview. It didn't interview. They're talking about how this is pre Meghan. How he never expected to meet a woman who would be able to take on this pressure and I think he eventually felt we couldn't protect Meghan and that's why we came to the ultimate meltdown. Later on before we get to the mountain. No let's spend another moment on Princess Diana obviously in a strange way there are a fair number of parallels with that. You know famously. Storybook wedding watched by I. Think three quarters of a million people around the world or more than that and then that's very very very public dissolution of the marriage and ultimately an extremely public and painful death talk to us a little bit about her legacy and how that plays a role here. Well there's a couple of parallels the media pressure the media intrusion the fact that Dina was the biggest star in the World Megan's not far off flat as a couple they. Certainly I would say. Probably the biggest celebrity couple in the world globally having traveled with them not just in the UK or the US. That's one pressure. The pressure is an internal pressure. I had a story last year which caused real ructions behind palace walls and some very close to the couple talked about the couple not feeling supported by the rest of the institution. I e. the family feeling that they had single-handedly modernized the monarchy and that wasn't valued and that's exactly the sort of language that Diana spoke of as well how the institution was working against her. So I think that's the clear parallel between Meghan and Diana. And if you see some instagram posts. She speaks warmly. She also identifies with Diana. What about their desire for privacy? I watched their original BBC interview around the engagement and they talked about how at the beginning of their relationship. They sort of had five months before they were fully noticed and even their honeymoon. You mentioned how Diana was hounded by the press But obviously we're in an era where forces of social media invade every single space in almost all of our lives. Let alone the royals. How does privacy play a role for this? They were very lucky to stay under wire for that period of time and then eventually it came out in a British newspaper and they wanted to just get to know each other before that onslaught Harry was so aware the pressure that she would come under as soon as she became public and they came out as a couple but he just wanted to give her time to get to know him and presumably define the way they would carry out their public roles to hurry. He absolutely believes he has a right to a private life. And the tension blew up for example around Archie Christenings He received public money to renovate his cottage in Windsor couple of million pounds or so that was seen as taxpayers money and the tabloids. The British media felt that in return for public money. You are a public figure. Therefore you need to allow some access to your life and traditionally that would allow me in pictures at the baby's Christening because the baby is a public figure as well. Harry Mega fundamentally disagreed with that. They felt that they had a right to a private christening. And that's where the tension really fed up between the British newspapers and the couple and that's just the difference they couldn't resolve. They felt they had a right to private life and some in the media felt they did so. Was there a break with the public? Let's say after the birth of the baby archie. I don't know you whether the public has lost faith in them. Necessarily I think it's quite divided. Actually I think the line if if it was crossed for the couple was when they eventually came out and said they wanted different roles and they published a statement and they published a website and transpired that the queen had asked them not to. And they're done so anyway. I think for a lot of British people. That's crossing the line because she's the most revered figure in the country and she seen as a female icon as well more so than Meghan so that was a line that was crossed for the public. Perhaps the have got a huge amount of support particularly amongst young people. I know that America has a huge amount of support. A lot of people cheer her for the way she challenging the institution and refuses to compromise on any values and beliefs and the way she wants to live her life at the same time. There are those that feel that she doesn't have enough reverence for the system and she should have been more clear about her role and how she should fit in before she signed up to marriage and that sounds a bit harsh but ultimately monarchy is built on a hierarchy a hierarchy which is built on the line of succession. So it's the Queen Charles William and George if that breaks then the whole system collapses so never gonNa have a situation where Megan Harry would be on a par with William and Kate. It's just never going to happen because the system breaks down. You can modernize as much as you like. But you can't modernize that element of it. And this idea that she wasn't valued properly. I think for many within the institution many Traditionis is actually her misinterpreting. The reality is that she will always have to walk behind Kate. And William because that's the system really interesting. That's actually something I think. Most Americans it's harder for Americans particularly interrupt their minds around but just to keep us on the narrative briefly. They have the storybook wedding that go in a honeymoon. She announces a pregnancy relatively early Within five months of the wedding they have this beautiful baby and then they go on a trip to Africa. And it's there. They bring along a journalist. Tom Brand and they give them quite an intimate interview. Can you tell us a bit about that? I was there. I interviewed him earlier on as well. In theory it was about the tour and the causes but it became much more personal than that and a couple of moments. Really stand out. One was where Harry talked. He didn't talk about a rift with William but he did respond to a question about a rift with William where he said that they were on different Paul's which was the first public acknowledgement of a difference.

The Big Story

Harry and Meghan are moving to Canada. What does this mean for everything?

"Well it's official. Royal couple will be moving to Canada. Prince Harry and Meghan dropped a royal bombshell last week. The couple took to social media to announce their stepping back from senior royal duties. The Palace wasn't impressed in the queen called an emergency crisis meeting to figure out next steps ups of a Queen calling the discussions constructive adding she supportive of Harry and Megan's desire to be a young independent family. She also confirmed that Harry and Meghan again. We'll be living in Canada. This as you'll hear from our guest today is huge. Half in half out. It's never been done before. So what's what's behind the move. What are Harry Megan's plans for their time in Canada? What does this mean for their future? And what does this mean for the future of the monarchy and I'm Claire Broussard. In for Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the Big Story Patricia Treble double of royalty dot com is the royal contributor for Maclean's I patricia locally. So tell me about the moments that set all of this In motion the big announcement. Well the big announcement came on the eighth of January It was after six o'clock London time so all the palace officials officials that everyone had gone home right. They were or leaving or they're in transit and Harry and Meghan sent out what they called a personal message using the work medications patients so I got an email like all other royal reporters who are on that system. They also put it on their instagram account. And everything like that and basically saying they are stepping away from their roles as senior royals which came as a bit of a surprise to a lot of people because further reporting shows that while the he baby talking about reimagining their roles and changing the roles and maybe kind of stepping back from some duties the Queen had very explicitly said to Harry. Please don't do anything public until we settled this out. And they went ahead and by all accounts gave his brother Prince William and his father Prince Charles ten minutes notice so it was a done deal so they have basically basically launch themselves into the great known royal wise and I mean you follow royals for a living. What was your first reaction? My first reaction was in my jaw dropped and I picked it up ice. I forward that email onto my editors with Eight engine like you know those those red fire engines a survey. This is huge breaking news breaking news. It was jaw dropping because it was. It is so unusual You know we've not ever moved. Never had a senior royal stepping away from their duties like this before and it was also very personal for royal watchers. We could kind of see this coming. We knew that there was a change calming and it wasn't just with them taking six weeks off at the end of last year. It was even before that if you go back you know to the previous months when they were in southern Africa and they gave that incredibly emotional Raw interview to documentary. Puerta who's one one of their friends. Tim Bradley Tom Brady. And they talked about how Harry talked about how he basically really doesn't like the press at all. I mean every click reminds him if a mother And if you looked at Meghan you know she was clearly under pressure. She was struggling in the role and she kept talking about how it it wasn't enough to just survive. You have to thrive as you knew there was going to be a change and even then if you would go even further back though there these little telltale signs and one of the big ones for royal watchers when you Kinda look at it is in the sound so simple you know or not even obvious but it's that they have not gone to Balmoral which is the summer vacation spot of the Queen? The queen goes up there for a few months every year Late summer early autumn and all her family come visit in the years to come for about a week the roll through. You know it's not like everyone comes for the same week and they roll through and they go hiking and they do all sorts of stuff and she loves having her family around her. I mean it's the same like at Christmas. She likes to have her extended family gathering together. You know she's ninety-three she's always done. This is very much her thing and for the last two years. They begged off by immoral. They have not gone. And that's kind of one of those little signs that all was not well. That all was not settling in as well as everyone had hoped she would. So what was the reaction from Buckingham Palace. The reaction from Buckingham Palace was astonishing. Because about two hours later there was this to sentence sentence. Missive that basically said Oh cut cut cut cut cut through all the the the niceties like. Oh Oh my oh. Oh my my We need to think about this. This is all really complicated. Oh my basically that's what it is and you could see that. They were clearly caught off guard and they are making no bones about the fact that they were caught off guard by what Harry. Megan did and it wasn't just the message alone. You know saying you know. They want a balance you know their their time. Between the United Kingdom in North America they want a balanced their their private life their family life with duty you know and they kept talking about how they want to clam rate with the Queen and honor our duty to McQueen McConnell and everything like that but it was at the same time. They launched a website Sussex and that's their brain and it was the Sussex Royal Dot Com. If you you looked at it it was all loaded with this incredibly sophisticated website with all their thoughts about the financing. How they're going to finance themselves? They're talking about financial independence and and it talks about the Commonwealth. Every like that so this was not a sun thing. This was not just ended. This was planned. They had been working on this for a very very longtime and why exactly they lost. Shit this point likely because You know his thoughts you know his preliminary thoughts about the spending more time in Canada or spending more time away had made the press There was a story in the sun the day before and they just thought. Let's just go for it but they didn't tell. Oh Granny Yeah and speaking of the press. We've seen so many examples lately of different headlines for Kate and Megan. I mean there's time they're doing both the exact same thing at the headlines ends for. Kate can be positive and cheery and the headlines for Meghan can sometimes be pretty nasty What is that all about? Do you think that could be behind Harry and Megan's decision to leave so I've talked about this and I actually. I went into a certain depth. I got a backup to say that The tabloids in Britain The present Britain is just a whole whole different beast from what we're used to. I mean you must understand that And the other thing is you've got this differentiation between the print side and the online side right there that you don't have here so it's a again a very different beast and so if you're looking at something like Daily Mail they will take a story and they will slice it fifty eight ways to Sunday And they'll have fifty eight little stories and all with click bait headlines and stuff like that because that's what they're doing they they want you to click on the article. They want you to read the article. So the more extreme stream the headline the more the more they can talk and spin something they will do it and that is it standard over there and so what what happens is unfortunately making his the first person to marry into the raw family in the social media world and in the first world of this new type of journalism this online you know take tiny little snippet like there was a snippet about a Canadian billionaire. Somebody reported Canadian. Billionaire was the one who loans them his his his house in Vancouver island instantly. That story was everywhere they did all this thing about. Here's this guy. Here's his relationship to Clinton did a and then he goes on twitter and goes no. Oh that's I don't have a house here. I have no communications. This is completely false but by then that story everywhere and unfortunately what happens. Is You get these stories. So you'll get you know. Kate looks fabulous and green. Megan looks pattern green. But then you'll get. Kit Looks Fabulous in Green. Kate looks bad and green. Kate looks good white. Why is Kate wearing white again? You got these stories endlessly and the issue is that what a lot of people in you know when you become famous one of the first things everyone advises. You don't don't read the press. Yeah don't read the press. There is so much bad. Press out there and it is talked and often it is wrong and often it is inflamed and we're not talking the mainstream media. We're not talking the royal correspondence and things like that. We're talking about just the just the amorphous stuff that you everyone finds online and it's clear that they are reading the press and they're getting more upset and I would be because a lot of the stuff is they'll take a little nugget of information and spin it but at the same time they were getting upset about things that approve true. So Harry a Meghan. Were really upset about that. They were splitting from William and Kate and forming their own charity. That turned out to be true. They were upset because you know there were reports that make an Harry. Were churning through staff. That was true that they were that they were leaving. The Kensington Palace compound. That was true. You you know that. They jetted off repeatedly on private jets in the middle of summer while also talking up environmental causes. That's true so you know you're putting yourself in the public. I you have to expect criticism. Some of it is going to be unbelievably wrong and some of it is going to be legitimate. And it's a matter of balancing that out. What what does it mean really to step away from the family like officially will Harry still be Prince and Megan still be a duchess who the heck no really really? We don't even know this is this. Is this the mystery. We don't really know what this is GonNa mean what the few their future is. But you can make you could start to finding the tea. Leaves parsing royal statements is an art form. That a lot of us a figured out. Okay and so if you look at the statement after everyone met at Sandringham to talk about this The Queen issued a statement on January thirteenth. And it she talked about how it was incredibly emotional It was a very personal message. The Queen does not do you. Emotion like this not in public right Not Her thing. Form a woman formal generation. This is simply not. It is not for her to do it for other the generations to do. You'll get Charles everyone. Hugging people not going But if you look at it she she you she talks about Harry and Meghan. You know she doesn't talk about conductress Sussex. She talks about family eight times and she says that they will quote remain a valued part of my family But it's clear she says we. We wanted them to say fulltime royal working. They're not going to valued member of my family. I think what that means is that they are. They're not going to be doing official duties. I think that that is pretty much sending out the signal that if they want to go into commercial ventures which it looks as though they do to take the Sussex Royal brand global all that is simply incompatible with royal duties. Because you've got that conflict of interest because are you doing something because somebody's paying you to do it or you doing something something. Because you're supporting the crown and remember official royal duties and those are the ones that are in the court circular. You're doing this in support of the monarch and the monarchy. You're not doing it for yourself. It is very much support of her. You're aiding her so I think they're going to be all out but there are still her

Harry and Meghan are moving to Canada. What does this mean for everything?

"Well it's official. Royal couple will be moving to Canada. Prince Harry and Meghan dropped a royal bombshell last week. The couple took to social media to announce their stepping back from senior royal duties. The Palace wasn't impressed in the queen called an emergency crisis meeting to figure out next steps ups of a Queen calling the discussions constructive adding she supportive of Harry and Megan's desire to be a young independent family. She also confirmed that Harry and Meghan again. We'll be living in Canada. This as you'll hear from our guest today is huge. Half in half out. It's never been done before. So what's what's behind the move. What are Harry Megan's plans for their time in Canada? What does this mean for their future? And what does this mean for the future of the monarchy and I'm Claire Broussard. In for Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the Big Story Patricia Treble double of royalty dot com is the royal contributor for Maclean's I patricia locally. So tell me about the moments that set all of this In motion the big announcement. Well the big announcement came on the eighth of January It was after six o'clock London time so all the palace officials officials that everyone had gone home right. They were or leaving or they're in transit and Harry and Meghan sent out what they called a personal message using the work medications patients so I got an email like all other royal reporters who are on that system. They also put it on their instagram account. And everything like that and basically saying they are stepping away from their roles as senior royals which came as a bit of a surprise to a lot of people because further reporting shows that while the he baby talking about reimagining their roles and changing the roles and maybe kind of stepping back from some duties the Queen had very explicitly said to Harry. Please don't do anything public until we settled this out. And they went ahead and by all accounts gave his brother Prince William and his father Prince Charles ten minutes notice so it was a done deal so they have basically basically launch themselves into the great known royal wise and I mean you follow royals for a living. What was your first reaction? My first reaction was in my jaw dropped and I picked it up ice. I forward that email onto my editors with Eight engine like you know those those red fire engines a survey. This is huge breaking news breaking news. It was jaw dropping because it was. It is so unusual You know we've not ever moved. Never had a senior royal stepping away from their duties like this before and it was also very personal for royal watchers. We could kind of see this coming. We knew that there was a change calming and it wasn't just with them taking six weeks off at the end of last year. It was even before that if you go back you know to the previous months when they were in southern Africa and they gave that incredibly emotional Raw interview to documentary. Puerta who's one one of their friends. Tim Bradley Tom Brady. And they talked about how Harry talked about how he basically really doesn't like the press at all. I mean every click reminds him if a mother And if you looked at Meghan you know she was clearly under pressure. She was struggling in the role and she kept talking about how it it wasn't enough to just survive. You have to thrive as you knew there was going to be a change and even then if you would go even further back though there these little telltale signs and one of the big ones for royal watchers when you Kinda look at it is in the sound so simple you know or not even obvious but it's that they have not gone to Balmoral which is the summer vacation spot of the Queen? The queen goes up there for a few months every year Late summer early autumn and all her family come visit in the years to come for about a week the roll through. You know it's not like everyone comes for the same week and they roll through and they go hiking and they do all sorts of stuff and she loves having her family around her. I mean it's the same like at Christmas. She likes to have her extended family gathering together. You know she's ninety-three she's always done. This is very much her thing and for the last two years. They begged off by immoral. They have not gone. And that's kind of one of those little signs that all was not well. That all was not settling in as well as everyone had hoped she would. So what was the reaction from Buckingham Palace. The reaction from Buckingham Palace was astonishing. Because about two hours later there was this to sentence sentence. Missive that basically said Oh cut cut cut cut cut through all the the the niceties like. Oh Oh my oh. Oh my my We need to think about this. This is all really complicated. Oh my basically that's what it is and you could see that. They were clearly caught off guard and they are making no bones about the fact that they were caught off guard by what Harry. Megan did and it wasn't just the message alone. You know saying you know. They want a balance you know their their time. Between the United Kingdom in North America they want a balanced their their private life their family life with duty you know and they kept talking about how they want to clam rate with the Queen and honor our duty to McQueen McConnell and everything like that but it was at the same time. They launched a website Sussex and that's their brain and it was the Sussex Royal Dot Com. If you you looked at it it was all loaded with this incredibly sophisticated website with all their thoughts about the financing. How they're going to finance themselves? They're talking about financial independence and and it talks about the Commonwealth. Every like that so this was not a sun thing. This was not just ended. This was planned. They had been working on this for a very very longtime and why exactly they lost. Shit this point likely because You know his thoughts you know his preliminary thoughts about the spending more time in Canada or spending more time away had made the press There was a story in the sun the day before and they just thought. Let's just go for it but they didn't tell. Oh Granny Yeah and speaking of the press. We've seen so many examples lately of different headlines for Kate and Megan. I mean there's time they're doing both the exact same thing at the headlines ends for. Kate can be positive and cheery and the headlines for Meghan can sometimes be pretty nasty What is that all about? Do you think that could be behind Harry and Megan's decision to leave so I've talked about this and I actually. I went into a certain depth. I got a backup to say that The tabloids in Britain The present Britain is just a whole whole different beast from what we're used to. I mean you must understand that And the other thing is you've got this differentiation between the print side and the online side right there that you don't have here so it's a again a very different beast and so if you're looking at something like Daily Mail they will take a story and they will slice it fifty eight ways to Sunday And they'll have fifty eight little stories and all with click bait headlines and stuff like that because that's what they're doing they they want you to click on the article. They want you to read the article. So the more extreme stream the headline the more the more they can talk and spin something they will do it and that is it standard over there and so what what happens is unfortunately making his the first person to marry into the raw family in the social media world and in the first world of this new type of journalism this online you know take tiny little snippet like there was a snippet about a Canadian billionaire. Somebody reported Canadian. Billionaire was the one who loans them his his his house in Vancouver island instantly. That story was everywhere they did all this thing about. Here's this guy. Here's his relationship to Clinton did a and then he goes on twitter and goes no. Oh that's I don't have a house here. I have no communications. This is completely false but by then that story everywhere and unfortunately what happens. Is You get these stories. So you'll get you know. Kate looks fabulous and green. Megan looks pattern green. But then you'll get. Kit Looks Fabulous in Green. Kate looks bad and green. Kate looks good white. Why is Kate wearing white again? You got these stories endlessly and the issue is that what a lot of people in you know when you become famous one of the first things everyone advises. You don't don't read the press. Yeah don't read the press. There is so much bad. Press out there and it is talked and often it is wrong and often it is inflamed and we're not talking the mainstream media. We're not talking the royal correspondence and things like that. We're talking about just the just the amorphous stuff that you everyone finds online and it's clear that they are reading the press and they're getting more upset and I would be because a lot of the stuff is they'll take a little nugget of information and spin it but at the same time they were getting upset about things that approve true.
