What Does It Mean to Be a Man? Is It Worth Defending?

"What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be manly and is manliness? A political and a civic virtue. Is that something that's worth defending in our society today? This is a topic that's being discussed in some of the more intellectual quarters of the right. It seems like it is a debate about whose man and who's a woman, but it's not really about that. This is not a debate about Leah Thomas, and it's not a debate about biological males and women's sports, none of that. It's a debate about whether there is a distinction between males and females that could be described as manliness, and is that something that our society should in a conscious way cultivate and celebrate. Now, the debate sometimes takes a kind of low turn in that the defenders of manliness start looking around and looking particularly at the left and finding very mannish women or you may say unmanly men. And so a lot of this degenerates into a kind of name calling Obama's unmanly because he doesn't know how to throw a baseball. Look at beto o'rourke. This is such a beta male. He's so unmanly. And the consequently, there are efforts to look at women on the left and in the democratic side, Michelle Obama notably. And proclaim them unbelievably manly. And so, at this level, the debate is nothing more than a kind of slinging of epithets. In some cases, by the way, conservatives will leave and turn around and say, you know, libertarians are extremely unmanly and. Manliness is a lot more than this. I think that's really the point. So what is manliness if it's not simply flexing your muscles or showing off tattoos or being able to show your prowess in the MMA ring, what does manliness mean as a political and as a cultural

"If race is now the sole immutable barometer of who is a victim who was a victimizer, then LeBron James Jay-Z Kane west Chris Rock Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey are always to be among the eternally oppressed. Well, what did the LeBron James say? He scared to walk out of his house? Out of his mansion, yeah. That's exactly right. They're the eternal oppressed. The enormous influence power status and wealthy wield never negates their victimhood. Despite a nation three generations into affirmative action.

Report Finds 'Abuses of Discretion' in Kim Foxx Handling of Jussie Smollett Case

"I've talked before about the Jussie Smollett. Case in the Jussie Smollett verdict. Well, what I haven't talked is about is the responsibility. And the abrogation of duty and the shenanigans that have been pulled by Kim flocks, who was the Cook County state attorney, the supposed prosecutor of Jesse Smollett. The good thing is that there's now a report by Dan Webb, Dan Webb is a special prosecutor who was appointed. This is the guy who prosecuted Smollett. But what he does is he goes back and he looks not just at the small lead case, but he's done a report on the behavior of the office of Kim fox, and he finds all kinds of improprieties. Let's remember, let's refresh our memory when Smollett was first busted by the cops. And they had the goods on him. They had all the evidence that was eventually presented in the trial, but nevertheless, Kim Foxx's office a dismissed the 16 count felony indictment. In fact, had no requirement that Smollett either plead guilty or accept any responsibility. They really gave Smollett no real punishment. They just gave him essentially 15 hour 15, one 5. I had over a thousand hours by the way of community service. 15 hours of community service, and then they said, listen, you paid a $10,000 bond doing a forfeit that. So Jussie Smollett was gonna get off Scot free. Now, Dan Webb looks into the behavior of Kim Fox, and he finds all kinds of violations. First of all, Kim frocks from the beginning was conspiring with a couple of other leftists, a woman named Christina Chen. By the way, this is Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, and a woman named Cheryl and I fill whose president and director counsel of the NAACP legal defense fund. So this is how the left works in concert in order in this case. They knew that Jussie Smollett was guilty, but their idea was he's promoting our narrative. You know, racism everywhere, even if you had to make it up. So they're like, how do we get this guy off? So kitten Fox, for example, had said publicly, and you really see the level of public deceit, because she publicly said that I've recused myself from the case. She said, you know, yes, I did contact Smollett sister. I was in contact with the family when I thought he was a victim. But once I realized he was a suspect that we were looking into him as the possible perpetrator, I had no contact whatsoever with the family, and Dan Webb basically says this is a flat out lie. He points out that on multiple occasions, I think he identifies at least three that Kim Fox continued to maintain contact with Jussie Smollett's sister. And this he says was an abuse of

American united leggings. She just really kind of epitomizes. America in so many different ways. And i feel like that's part of what i think. Part of what helped get obama elected. I think that's part of her power and continuing to connect to people Even now i feel like pet posts awhile presidency like it's michelle who's really like having a big sort of public influence said like i mean. The world is obsessed with her I think yeah reading her upbringing. I found like it was really cool. Sort of inside look into the history of chicago but Like i said it looked a lot like a lot of my friends childhoods to and so it was it was been interesting sort of i don't know i really. I really enjoyed that. And i can see why she can kind of go anywhere and someone like. Yes i relate to you and i think that's really cool. Something she kind of Talks about more in the next section becoming or sorry yes becoming when she starts. I mean it'd be part of that is her in brock's relationship in we can get into that as well because i love stories but also when she is hoping campaign for obama it's through her relatable storytelling Kind of cliche at this point. But so true of like the more specific you are the more relatable and like she has very specific stories. She like us as a tool to build bridges of understanding between one and people might feel like. I'm so different from you. And she's like oh my my dad was also disabled and this hit a big impact on our lives. Yeah i like. I literally wrote in my notes. I loved the middle section. That was like by far my favorite in watching them sort of advancing their careers. And like that's where the conflict really starts in their personalities and winning through that but particularly michelle obama on the campaign trail was a formidable force that i being like ten years old did not pay attention to and when it happened and so like i just had no idea i literally wrote in my notes like michelle is the reason that obama won iowa like.

"Now if you experienced at all there seems to be consensus around this like i want to say michelle. Obama even wrote about it in her book. What a black students who are in route to a medical degree get strongly encouraged by counselors and advisors to not do it. Have you heard of this phenomenon has happened to you. I have not heard this. And i also i haven't experienced it either. No one's discouraged me on that. I'm wondering if that's before they get to college. Possibly if students are like exploring the possibilities of what to go into when you said that the immediate thought that came to mind was what malcolm x. was discouraged to become as a child when they asked them. Hey what do you want to be and when you think about systemic racism oppression that stuff. A lot of it has nothing to do with physical fighting but has everything to do with what happens mentally to get you to accept whatever definition. They are trying to put upon you. What did he originally wanna be. I don't remember exactly. But i think it might have been a lawyer or something like that knowing it would have been a good lawyer. But it's one of those things where you say you. So damn you know when i went to college after i came home from prison bumped into master teachers. My most impactful teacher was a student of dr john. Henry clarke and i think dr john henry clogged is taught. You know the fact that he was professor maradas hunter college in. He had people under him who were not so talk ahead to go to school to get educated. They're getting their education in addition to what they had under him so with regards to master teachers. What i found was that in educational environments that are breeding ground for success. They have specific things right it. A student to teacher ratio is a balance that you find in a lot of private schools but in public schools. You don't find a lot of people fall through the cracks but with the master teachers. They didn't get the opportunity to look at the child and see the child's gifts that they're exhibiting

Capitol Hill violence again raises the question of social media responsibility

"The story of the us capital wednesday was a dark day. Us history once again. Ask the question. How much responsibility rests on social media companies that have allowed figures like president trump the foment enough rage to enable such an act. This is your daily charge me to discuss this is our social media reported queenie wall. Welcome queasy thank you for having me. It's been quite the crazy exhausting week. Yes i really actually want to get you on earlier by new. You're so busy to the store. I didn't want to bother you. I'm glad you're able to come on today. so let's let's talk about it. Facebook and twitter have to their credit. They been more proactive of the last several weeks really since the election in flagging trump social activity but wednesday's violence seem to be a real turning point. Run through some of the steps. They've taken to to your outright block trump in some cases so i think it was interesting because you saw content. Moderation happen in real time and initially. Facebook twitter did with a usually did with trump's posting tweets which was a label to them which you know experts have said in the past. They felt was not very adequate on to his claims of voter fraud. And then you saw twitter limit. The reach of his tweets Like stopping people from re tweeting his tweets and them and then eventually saw the company's remove the posts and that was you know as violence continued to break out on capitol hill. They took the even stronger step of locking trump's accounts which prevented him from tweeting or posting on facebook. Facebook said the lock was indefinite and twitter. Said that he had to delete three violating tweets. After that there there would be like a twelve hour lock period and once that ended he Again so how. Unprecedented is this. The you know. The fact that facebook said trump's account would definitely be locked down for the next two weeks but also really called indefinite which suggests there isn't an end date cow. How a precedent. How big of a deal is this. It's a really rare step by the social media companies because in the past especially with facebook the company has had a mostly hands on hands off approach to political speech. They exempted politicians from fact checking and their rationale has been political speeches already heavily scrutinized and the public should have the right to see what the president is saying and twitter has taken a much tougher stance but they have something called a public interest. Notice where they will limit the sharing of the tweet and say that it violated its rules. But you could still see the tweet if you click through the notice. But this time. Both of the company's locked trump's accounts and pulled down his tweets because they said you know the risks of islands with much greater than public interests these steps as you note there big deal ends a big change of practice but is it too little too late for these companies and many sense. Yeah it was because the violence had already broken out. They were given a lot of warning signs before and they didn't take stronger. Action until after violence had broken out and so the companies got criticism from politicians including former first lady. Michelle obama on civil rights activists journalists saying they should either take stronger action or that. This was really something that they should have done a lot. Sooner because at this point damage has been done right. So let's talk about the role that social media's played in radicalizing people how all this online content motivate people enough to actually travel all the way to dc and stormed the capitol building so trump himself and his supporters were promoting this rally online. Like it was no surprise that there was going to be a big rally on january the sex and he's been pushing these baseless claims of election. Fraud sense you know. Joe biden was declared the winner of the next of the presidential election. So he's been sort of riling up his supporters By seeing the election has been stolen and even before the violence broke out there were already stories and researchers pointed out that there were calls for violence on various social media platforms and some of it was in social media sites where there's a large conservative base marvin echo chamber. So it's just a lot of anger being filled. Fueled by a lot more anger on social

With your accent ultra. Ultra ultra audio. I mean rene shall we guys. I'm harry and meghan one of the things. My husband and i have always talked about is our passion for meeting people and hearing their stories and no matter what the story the usually offer you an understanding of where someone else's coming from and at the same time remind you in some way of a story about yourself and that's what this project is all about to bring forward different perspectives and voices. The perhaps you haven't heard before and find common ground different voices. Different perspectives could be less establishment an elitist than a member of the common ground. They must it's just i am no nothing against either of them personally and i'm sure it'd be perfectly listenable but it's the this idea that that telling stories that haven't been told as though there are hundreds of protestors out there who've been doing that for years Yes but i'm not. I personally don't resent them. You know someone who makes similar shows to the ones they're describing i. I've kind of always thought the most celebrities get involved in podcasting. Jimmy collins is everybody he does drive up listenership for podcasting and ultimately that's a good thing for everyone making cast rising tide carries ships. So something more in the sex is good. I mean things that knowing me arch well audio is production company. Name rather than the brand name. But maybe that'll be fixed later on show it will be. I mean people have said to spotify. They had problems with royalties so maybe this is their acquisition of gimli. I'm not gonna say it's paying off but this is another coup that at least uses some of the things that they bought because that style that informal so we just heard in the trial is meghan. Markle is season actress but even so to produce prince harry to sound like that. I imagine must've taken actually quite a lot of effort and that's the kind of thing gimblett. Good isn't it. I mean for for spotify. They they've got a blinder of year They signed up. A lot of people have acquired companies. They're positioning themselves that you have to basically use the spotify app as your podcast app because it will combine shows you can get publicly from. Rss feeds with shows exclusive to that platform. And this just like michelle obama on a job. Rogan will do that. And they're they're playing a blinder. Will it be a super successful show if it was them solving family problems. Why do you think it is the rebecca the four. I mean i'm using the short end of calling them royals. I know technically. They're not in the official practicing royal family but four royals. Why do you think podcasting would appeal. Where it's hard to imagine a royal. Even an excommunicated one doing a regular radio show. Tv show you know making would not be doing fine witchy quick answer probably because they can edited shit. You know it's very. It's very safe way for them to they can achieve things. They make themselves sound relatable polka like having a friend in your ears but also it's obviously going to be edited very carefully so it can be presented in this in the package. They've got in mind. I'm not gonna lie. I mean i might listen. If they drop a few hints about their private lives. I mean on that does their willingness to allow certain vetted meteoroid is asians access into their private lives contradict with what they're doing in the high court. I mean you know. They're suing associated newspapers. They're suing a picture agency for invading. Their privacy can they have it both ways yes. They need to make living but they are making a living by selling access to themselves. Well i think that's very in line with what they're doing that they have decided that it's going to be entirely beyond their own terms. And that's a mixture of legal giving exclusives owned media. Have got a documentary thing with netflix's well as they've got this spotify so yeah i mean i think it fits the pat now whether it works out. We'll see. I'm sure it'll be absolutely fine for them I think they also know that they've got to by being totally against the press which is pretty much what they are. They need access to their own media so social media. Podcast and the netflix tally to to get their own voices heard. They don't need the inbetween of the sun. The daily mail to communicate to the to the public and done that to you. They've created their own channels to to speak to subjects directly. It's interesting 'cause. I think we have seen recently a bit more of a celebrity. Push back against this idea that it is a trade off. I think you know for you know decades. We've accepted as fact this idea that if you're famous you owe us certain amount of your personal life. It comes with the territory and we've just kind of let that be you know. Just the fact. Yeah well now we're seeing push back. I think you awareness. That mental health has contributed to the celebrities. Are saying why who says you know. And i think having their own social media pocus platform etc has really boosted that movement towards no. I'll tell you what you can have. an from. Sports point of emu say work in terms of getting people to the platform. And i'm sure it will but they're investing so much money. Do you know how they judge whether it's a success. I mean what's the metric because way they make money is by converting into premium subscribers or selling them targeted ads. You know a jet for model to have. That's that's so poke. If you're spotify subscriber endanger ads on the music. You will still get ads on the po costs. So there's there's an ad model there. I'm looking forward to make an harry. Doing s- quest based and dodi shots but they will re reads the ads in michelle obama's show. Maybe they'll have a third person a stunt character. He'll do the reeds for them. Who knows some courtier. But that that's that's the market. I but for spotify a whole you remember the music. Pit doesn't really make any money but they need to do is shave. A couple of percentage points off the royalties. They pay all the volume that they pay the record companies to make the whole thing profitable so if i was them and i was saying hey only thirty percent of the audio consumed on spotify is music now when we come up to rights negotiation. We have another look at that so by being broader they have a few levers they can pull. It could actually make their operation much more. Profitable nothing postings. Partly way to do though

"Two classically american. You she just really act. Kind of hit amazes america in so many different ways. And i feel like that's part of what I think that's part of what helped get obama elected. I think that's part of her power and continuing to connect to people even now. I feel like posts awhile. Presidency like it's michelle who's really like having a big public influence. Said like i mean the world is obsessed with her. I think yeah reading. Her upbringing found like it was a really cool sort of inside look into history of chicago. But like i said it looks a lot like a lot of my friends childhoods to until it was it was interesting sort of i don't know i really. I really enjoy that. And i can see why she can kind of go anywhere. And someone's like yes. I relate to you And i think that's really cool. I feel like that's something. She kind of talks about more in the next section becoming or sorry yes. We're going when she starts. I mean it'd be part of that is hurt in brock's relationship in we can get into that as well because i love love stories but also when she is hoping campaign for obama like it's through her relatable storytelling Like kind of cliche at this point. But so true of like the more specific you are more relatable atlantic. She has very specific store. She can Like us as a tool to build bridges of understanding between one and people who might feel like. Oh i'm so different from you. And she's like oh my. My dad was also disabled A big impact on our lives and yet like i literally wrote in my notes i loved the middle section that was like by far my favorite in watching them sort of advance in their careers. And like that's where the conflict really starts in their personalities and winning through that but particularly michelle obama on the campaign trail was a formidable force that i being like ten years old did not pay attention do and when it happened and so like i just had no idea. I literally wrote my notes. Michelle is the reason. That obama won iowa like like just the amount of face to face networking that she did during his campaign sort of unmatched among like potential first ladies like she was as much a public figure in a representative of an obama administration as brock. Like i think a opinion on this is like. I also read few months ago. Now i read ton ozzy cokes eight years in power and he has its essay collection. He has he wrote an essay couple years in the obama about physically amount about michelle. And he.

"I'm going to do this now. Like oh yeah that's good. I'm like awesome. Thank you for that approbation. But i also i when i did retake it when i got excited. 'cause you're like rocks nine when i retook it my second highest wasn't i in this also like a very very fun to barack obama. Put tyrod more. Maybe to hit like ms like his work ethic not work just like his. What is the wearing. Translate like his drive makes sense to me. In a way that it's kind of like teams more all over the place Like it's less structured but it is still nine of head in the same place whereas i was like. Yeah like michelle. Like did seem like she. Now let's one track like sheep full kind of just like from the beginning like she was like. This is the path that i'm supposed to tainting. Moore's no instead of just kind of I think. I related to later like later when she would just kind of like switched jobs a lot and i was alternate as i was like that i get that was like i am almost always ready to try a new job. It's something amazing decisive. I think multiple things are interesting. I just want to try my hand at a few things like like doing things like running away just like media hold like basically just kind of like be a in for a second and then but then also michelle meetings like the order the structure thing. I was like both of you. I understand your yeah like i. It's interesting looking at the pair of them. Because i mean brock is much more chaotic. But he but he's also. He has a sense of confidence and belief in his ideals in himself in what he's doing his goals in other people That is what it seems to drive him in seems to like he backs it up with a lot of reading hard work but it seems like the belief and confidence are a lot of what gets him in the door whereas with michelle. She makes very clear like you know. I worked my ass off for this like. She's very practical. She's very like what is immediately in front of me that i can do and like puts in the hours and is very very focused and driven on a particular thing and doesn't have as much faith in other people she's like. I gotta do this myself. And that was kind of the main difference between them both very successful people. But yeah so i yeah i like reading the whole section. I was just like this is giving me excellent insight. Into victoria's mind. I was like this is victoria break. I don't know has moments where she's like when you care so much about what other people think you you blah blah blah and mike. Every she says it. I'm like i know we do care too much. It's not helpful often like knitting too and he talked moving to that like that. School in the west side is like what is now. Yeah and she got her first be or something and had like a small identity crisis like that's kind of part of michelle obama's power. In a way is. I feel like she somehow manages to bring together like her life. Experiences are really relatable to lake a very wide variety of human beings..

Dvd's you haven't looked at a decade is a show that perfectly encapsulates life in the early aunts and launched a friendship that would inspire millions. Hi I'm Zach Braff and I'm Donald Phase in two thousand one. We start in scrubs a Sitcom that revealed a glimpse of what it was like to survive medical internship as Turk Jd. We explored guy. Lump nearly twenty years later. A lot is changed. We're not superman. But we're still best friends given a mandatory lockdown. There's no better time to relive the series that brought us together in the first place and doing it a podcast. That's right people we're gonNA bring friends and crew members and fellow cast members and writers. And guess what we're GonNa even invite some of you to call into the podcast and ask all the questions. You WANT THE ENTIRE SECRET HEART STAFF. Join US for fake doctors.

Let's let's go to Let's pick a year. Let's say let's say twenty twenty four Hypothetically speaking if you are accepting the nomination of presidency just hypothetically speaking what's on the Awami play for you on. Dj Your acceptance. Oh that's just wrong. Oh yeah well that that hypothetical will never happen. Never know and let me just let let B be clear the presidency. It's it's hard It's it's not something it's not an endeavor you Take on without serious consideration and it's not just about whether you personally can do it or whether they're people who want you to do it but it's a it's a hard ride to take your family on it's A. It's a huge sacrifice to ask the people that you love and it's not. I'm not just talking about my kids but anyone that has that is within our orbit get impacted by this And I just would never do that to my girls again. Ano- it it it it. It shapes their life you know there are many great things that they got from it And you know they don't regret it for a second but their whole childhood was truncated in a way. Because you know magin growing up and trying to go to prom with armored guards in trying to you know have a boyfriend or go to concert You know right now My oldest daughter can't can't go to a public place without everything she does scrutinized and she's mentioned and they've held themselves up well in it You know and and so when people say that I. I know that there's an excitement and what people need. But as a parent I feel like you know. My family has made a sacrifice and now it's time to make room for the next generation and the flip side to that. Is that if we continue to sit in the seats of power and we don't train and build up the next people we look around and we find that our benches empty you know so i. I don't think it's good for democracy to have the same set of families with the same set of ideas just sort of passing the mantle back and forth. I don't think it's good for the country So that's why Barack and I are dedicating our our our foundation the work that we do to really building up that next generation because there are a lot of young people out there who will be good at this. Who will have no way of knowing? How do you access politics? How do you raise money? You know how. How do you go from being nobody to being in this?

I don't know if anybody's ever GONNA ask these people to come to your house. Yeah Yeah Diana Ross came and performed of just for the staff Bruce Springsteen The the show he's doing on Broadway right now He tested that out. It was just a fluke. He wanted to do he offered to do something to say. Thank you to the Staff. And we were like of course bruce you can do whatever and he put together what became home. The Broadway shows are always says Hamilton. The same thing like absolutely that's how he got the inspiration to even go through with it. Yeah he tested on you. I yeah and We thought he was look crazy. We were like okay Alexander Hamilton okay. That's nice cute. It's it's always say that Like I was part of the production team that did the cast album and apparently I missed the email of him pitching it to me so I told him I found the email after the record and I read the email and I told them as a yeah. There's probably I would probably said No. I'm fine I'll sit this one out because right just looking at this concept I was like has the chance of being a little corny right. Yeah but somehow he warned me through absolutely you you and your husband art true chicagoans to the bone and probably one of the most touching things that shocked me during your administration was the The letter condolences that you sent to Chicago. House heads When Frankie knuckles as the way and always wanted no like as a trueblue Chicago in are you a house head like have you gone to any house parties to see any of the Gods of House Music Dj Ever Yeah. I was I was old by the time house. Music was like a big thing in Chicago. you know everybody. Has The music house music you know but by then I was out of clubbing out so I never got to experience. The you know going at the club is being all up in it. But you know you couldn't you can't be in and out of Chicago without knowing barrels right. What about stepping? Are you a good? Are you your husband good stepping you know? I love to step Barack is you know he can. He can do it. But you know who loves to STEP WITH ME? Is Sasha my youngest? Oh She oh yeah yes she. She gets such a huge kick. Outta me leaning her through the so. That's sort of one of the things that we do when we're at a party together or where family event she's like Ma less debt. Let's step But you know we never had the time. Barack and I never had the time to lake. Do the step classes. Because that's what couples do in Chicago. You go you go to Kennedy King College where you're taking the step. Glad so we never. We never trained INSTEP. Can I say I just sort of? It's Kinda just a box you know. And if you've got like a rhythm and you got the right song you got a little you know a good step in song. It just comes But I I grew up watching it on on TV and parents doing it so it's almost like I can imitate it but I've taught Sasha had a step and that's she's my step in part on I will say that The party that you guys grant me permission to DJ I'll say that I was holding back. Maybe for the first hour so because like okay. I'm at the White House. I can't be to look at the White House and Oh boy little did I know That you all speak the same vocabulary musically so for you know how important is it to also embrace? Because that's the thing I just never seen. I've never seen like parents wholeheartedly. Embraced the music. Culture of their kids like normally parents. I know role there is up in the air and kick you know that sort of thing whereas you guys were out partying your daughters at you know the the last week of the White House party. His jaw dropped like so. I mean. How important is it to you to to bind in also understand like the music they like ours. They like like you know who chance to rally. Yeah absolutely I mean I I when you love music you love all music And if it's a good song if it's got a good beat you know. I can t out tease my kids. How good their favorite artists are compared to the great sal? Play that game with them but I can appreciate a good whatever it is. You know And I and I love that time with my daughters I love to let them teach me about what they love. AND AGAINST. Sasha is my more musical child. She you know she. She's got her room. Set Candles Lit. You know colored light bulbs with a certain sound and it just depends on what her mood. Is You walk into her room and she could be playing classical music or she could be jammed the scissor or you know you always surprised by her taste And that reminds me of how I grew up. You know. My grandfather was a jazz lover but he respected my mother's music. He respected our music. And I think that's just when you love music you're open to just something that feels good so there I I love sitting down with Sasha and just telling her tell me what's good. Tell me what you're liking now okay. She'll say I just heard you. You're GonNa love this and she knows my taste. This is a new artists. You're GONNA love them. I think you know she's like I think of you when I think of this artist So in that way they keep me They keep us both on on point. I don't know all the artists names now. I confused the you know. I just recently realized that What Migos wasn't just one year. Then I kept saying you know. Let's meet WHO's right right. Let's meet him and they're like no mom that's not just that's group and then I found out okay. Well then who? Who are they Yes I'm not all down with it but when when I'd like a song like halfway I mean your daughter Shit music with you like you know music. My parents and that might be grounded for two weeks so you know what I'm saying. Yes she's like. Don't do that that. I try not to be judgmental with the music. Because it's like that's how I felt about social media throughout the presidency. The question is if we're GONNA reach kids. We have to understand their language. We have to know what they're hearing if we want to get young people to vote. We can't get them to vote just talking our language so we had to figure out. Well what is twitter? And what's Vine? And what are the kids listening to? And if you're busy judging it you can't communicate with them so I don't want my kids to feel shut down because their music isn't what I grew up with So I think it's very important but you know stuff I don't like I don't like and I will tell them if I think. An artist is crap You know and we'll have debates about it. SO. I I think that's a good conversation for families have go okay..

"There was the music that I bought myself, and that was the forty five version of something with the Jackson Five, ABC. CAIRN of Stop the love you save, that's win. Though the forty fives that new played on your little Makeshif record player thing, it wasn't like the Big Stereo that your parents allowed you. The US, but the thing you plugged in, and you had to put that little round thing and the whole. In you know? That was that was the music that I was allowed to play on my own. Keep the record in my bedroom. Kinda thing, but the Jackson Five. That was what young people that's. We grew up imitating the Jackson five and putting the record on and cousins would be Tito and I'd be Michael. Beyond the drums. We spent the whole afternoon like just shaping our performance to stop the love you save so. Those were some of my first memories. I always tease I always tell them that them. When when our C. The Jackson's that. You know for a lot of us. That were young and you know like. They were the first superheroes that we really had. The jacksons were an occupation almost, and it was interesting culturally because there were the Osmond's remember were the big sort of white family group back then, and there was the big debates about who was better, the Jackson Five, the Osmond's and that was a sort of a political state. So how did you feel on the lines? How'd you feel about one bad apple? Apple when it came out where you fold Lino mid was it was cute, because back then you didn't have like fifty million stations, right? The one station and that played all the pop music, so you heard stopped love you save along with one bad apple, and that you know you had your little groove and dances to that, too. But where was your heart? Your heart was with the Jackson five okay. Michael That's money because I. was I'm one of those friends in the Group of friends that is always last to call something, so I was always Tito. Everybody everyone's fight over. I'll be I was also surrounded by my brother and my male cousin, so I was the only girl in the in the in the posse been, so it was just natural that I stood out as Michael you know. I've felt I would justified in being Michael if I had to hang out with all these boys I should at least be able to tell them what to be around. Grand, this. So even then you knew you knew you had a role to play in without even knowing what future is going to be I obviously. Do you remember your first concert. You know that's that we were too broke for concerts. I mean you know I'm trying to think because my kids go to concerts all the time and I'm like you all are so lucky We were too poor for concerts. Quite frankly ma I never saw the Jackson Five Live. I'm trying to think maybe it was in college where and it wasn't really a concert. It was like an arena orchestra. Sort of Stevie. Wonder was playing in an orchestra. Maybe it was in Philly it's kind of a blur, and a girlfriend had the idea of getting tickets and going to see it I do remember. Was! Oh Gosh if I had to have been maybe a sophomore in in college, so that was what eighty. Eighty, two eighty three and it wasn't it Stevie wasn't like on some big arena tour at may be. It was a benefit. I don't i. don't even remember, but I do remember that we had front row tickets and we both walked in. Our tickets were and then we realize it's like we are in the front row happened. We were looking around waiting for somebody to tell us to move to move. but it was just him and his band, and he played some numbers, and then he call his his bodyguard. People pick some people to come up on stage and stand around the piano, and Sing Ebony and ivory and me, and my girlfriend were picked so I was standing on stage with Stevie. By his piano, thinking what ruin, but that was yeah, yeah, no, I never told them about that because I figured he didn't see me. Right? Well I know that Stevie has. been at the White House at least fifty eleven times. Like. Any event that I'm seeing between two thousand eight and two thousand sixteen, like it's almost like Stevie. Wonder comes with the package like TV CV is you know that he and he is all you know he's always game. If there's a cause and it's something he believes in. The first time he showed up was at one of the biggest fundraisers that I had during the campaign It was at Ucla and this was a big announcement because I was I was highlighting I was the keynote representing my husband, the campaign, but Oprah introduced us. It was Maria. Shriver and that was a big deal because that was right when she was going to endorse Barack over What her her husband the governor was. Was Doing, and that was a big deal. Caroline Kennedy so was a women's empowerment kind of thing, the first time I was surrounded by all these mega giants, and I was the keynote speaker they were passing off these introductions to me and right before I went onstage one of our staff, said Stevie wonder's on the phone and he's in the area. He heard about the concert, and he wants to come by and I was like Oh, yeah. So, he just shows up. Like I know that happens a lot. Actually wanted to ask. Are there any other Non Stevie? Wonder moments at the White House, that stands you. Oh Yeah Yeah Prince, but as the first one is prince performing, but of course stevie performed to. Stephen the Ultimate Party crash I get get. When Stevie! There! It's like okay. Steve Guy play Prince and we went back and forth trying to get prints because every time we do our parties and you've been to one of the parties. Yes you've been there and so oftentimes the personal parties were around a birthday or something like that, and of course, prince doesn't celebrate birthdays so. He was like I can't come. But I WANNA come, so we had to figure out how to create something. That wasn't a birthday that he could come to, and we finally worked it out. and you know that was just. That's just prince doing his thing and jamming in a way. where he for the first fifteen minutes, he just let his band riff. You know that generosity that he has to let his you know backup singer lead the song in his bases. They were just jammed before he even showed up and it. That was amazing. Paul McCartney. Singing Michel to me, wow! You know Aretha Aretha has performed performed many a time and you know. She would come with her for and her medal of freedom, badge on because when she came to the White House she wore all her stuff. and she's. She's blown the house down. By everyone from Mick, Jagger to. One of the more beautiful performances was Esperanza spalding. Before she.

I am honored my love you first of all so getting this time to chat you. Wonderful break. Thank you. First of all I mean. Just in general. How has this whole experience been for you Did. You expect to sell as many units. Then come out the gate like this. This book is changing like the Golden, the chat rooms and see people's reaction to the book in. The staggering sales like. Did you expect any of this at all? Honestly No, no, I don't expect anything that has happened in my life. You know I'm a girl grew up on the south side of Chicago every day Barack and I wake up and go what? We're still doing that, but but I. my hope was that the book would resume would resonate I knew that I would be writing a book because all First Ladies All firt. Presidents are expected to write a memoir of some sort so I had. Had some time to think about what I wanted this to be, and this could have been just a chronology I could have just sort of walked through the days of those eight years blow by blow but I knew I I wanted to the book to be more than that I wanted it to be a book that would inspire people to dig deep into themselves and understand their stories in the way that I've had the luxury of doing over the course of my life so I I feel like I'm just maybe the Muse that my story is the framework but my my overall goal was that people would start having these conversations about their memories, and the the context of their lives, and how it's shaped them and you know what what? They WANNA. Do going forward, so I'm excited that not just for the sales in the units in the arena crowds, but more of what you're seeing comments in how to move ing people to think differently about their own lives in stories. Yeah, even out, say that even in or first of all. Thank you for A. Granny the honor of of of of scoring the me playlist, that goes with the book, but. Even with me Like I had to dig so deep into. Memories and songs for me are like Polaroid's of moments in my life, so songs aren't just songs for me. Like audio polaroid's and you know even for me. knowing your vast music tastes with which I really WANNA get into I you know. For me. It was all also an experience like trying to figure out what moment you were Or trying to guess what moment you were feeling when Miss Particularly. That particular thing, happy Off Classic slow form I forgot to mention. Yes, the name of your book is becoming. Guests on the show and be like. Oh, by the way we were talking about. Lively gentlemen good night. So knowing that the how big of a role that music plays in your life I'd always start this this question with all my guests. Do what was your first musical memory or do you remember the first album you ever brought for single? Yeah, yeah, absolutely, absolutely I talk about that. Yes. Talking Book Stevie Wonder's talking book was the first album I remember getting a gift, and I got it twice. That's how good an album was I. I got it as a gift for Christmas from my parents, and then from my grandfather southside, who I wrote about who is sort of the musical core of our family. My maternal grandfather who he gave me the album you remember there was the album you can get with the Liberals in Braille Braille year. Yeah, yeah, and I remember spending time just not only listening to the the the record over and over again, but trying to feel the Braille and understand the words and to think about and I I would. Would memorize the cover because there's something about that cover with stevie without his glasses sitting like Anna Canyon area in that Dashiki Afghan sort of thing with the braids, and all of that was you know that cover to me was as much the experience of the album for me I was trying to really find I was really trying to figure out what goes on in his mind. What is he thinking? What does it feel like being blind? How does he feel music So that was the first album that I ever owned as a child, but then.

"To Michelle Obama in this double talk clips sixteen. It's worth listening to listen. Been socialized to sort of sit there and be quiet and to sort of you. Before we open our mouths argue with ourselves at our head. We before I can speak up. Perfect while the guy. Anything you dislike us to hear? Happens to a lot of people. So here's an oppressed woman. Now, Michelle Obama getting it on the oppressed racket grew up in a understanding a middle class home in Chicago always made believe she was poor it worked for her. She became first lady sort of. And now she's complaining that women were sort of socialized to sit there and be quiet. I guess that message didn't take effect on her somehow. She's speaking for the other women, I guess that's the only way to look at it. I want to ask you a question. Most of you wanted entertainment to continue where I asked you. If you thought that the pornographer you Hefner was a villain or a hero. And we had a great show. Great callers for playboy bunnies. Dan, mothers, whatever it was a good show. But fundamentally I thought about it. Then I showed that show was about do you believe in sin? I mean was he a center or Saint is what it came down to? Now, of course, the network said that he was one of the greatest men in the history of the world far exceeding that of any patriot. That is you have to the pornographer as to be expected by the purveyors of pornography violence, but I want to ask you the audience of this show, which is different audience than the network audiences. This is a very unique audience as is as are all the audiences on this side of the aisle. It's like another America. But I want to ask you something. Do you believe in sin does sin actually exists? There is an invention of the ancient Israelites to control the wild Jews of the desert. Let me repeat that in case you missed it. You probably shocked, by the words because you never heard wild and Jews in the same phrase Arpita case you missed it. Do you believe in sin? Does Syn actually exist. Was it? A trick of the ancient Israelites to control the wild Jews in the desert thousands of years ago..
