"Skills and mechanisms to learn into adapt. That's more important than how to be a good person and have grace in the face of all this shit. That's more important. Honestly, as shitty as Mira had it, as shitty as I had it, it should as you guys had it. It made me who I am. There's scars or I'm not saying I enjoyed them, but I'm not saying I wish them on people, but they made me who I am that gave me the empathy and the understanding. But again, there are some people in this world the last president who clearly had some bad shit happened to them and it went the other way, you know? But yeah, I think it's all about equipping. It's not about protecting. You protect as best you can. You put a roof over their head, you know, you don't do stupid shit, but other than that. And I think that's kind of the conversations Mira had with their son. It's that too. I'm going to answer these questions as best in as honestly as I can. And then I'm going to debrief with my husband about it and we're going to come up with a plan. Yeah, and to your point, I think equipping not only are children, our children, but also just everyone around. Like you said, giving this book to people that you think should breed it to understand, here's one example of what growing up Brown in this country feels like. This is what having a child who you know is going to go through some more experiences. Feels like I remember just hurt depictions of her fights with her husband and a lot of it is just the conflict of her child looks like her. And so she can understand what kind of world awaits him, right? And how the world will see him. Is that afraid of me? Yeah. I mean, I had a girlfriend and in college, a serious girlfriend. And she was white. And we had this debate. Like, we weren't going to get married, but if she's like, if I had kids, I can't be walking through them all and people not think it's my kid. My sister, as well as my podcast co host, both married to black men. Their children look black, you know? My daughter, my daughter is, I'm not sure if he looks Indian or Chinese, but it's a thing, you know, in mirror's son looks like Mira, not like Jed. And never mind the kind of relationship. I mean, he is absolutely his father's son. I would imagine, but he doesn't look like it, right? And the world is going to judge him on, you know, a term I've learned modern minorities is this idea of black passing white passing, Brown passing, you know?.

"And so I think it's really easy to point fingers, and I think some of us are more guilty than others, depending on your life experience. But Mira was just as guilty of it. You know, at a point in her life. And she wasn't aware of it. And I think it's about what are those moments, those uncomfortable moments that you have to force yourself into to learn from. And this is, you know, it is exhausting to have to explain it to other people, rira, which this is where fiction and nonfiction are great. This is where media is great. Because again, it's great to be talking with other Asian people about this book. But this is a book that, hey, listeners to this podcast. If you are Asian. Sure, get it from the library, but buy a copy of this book for your white friends that you don't want to have a conversation with. And modern minorities, my podcast. I have a lot of my white friends from Alabama who listen to the podcast. And I get notes from them. I'd never realized. I was like, well, that's okay. I don't have time to explain it to you. Listen to the podcast. Rate at 5 stars on Apple, please. I did find it, I mean, as the aspera Asians, let's say. We really do get it from both sides, right? Because we get the racism from the country we live in, but then we also get the American enough. Yeah, the exclusion from our family back home. That coupled with no mirror being a darker skin, no desi person. The color was on part with just like we were mentioned. We have that in the East Asian Diaspora too. And I mean, it's even more aggressive there because like what's considered dark for us, it's not really that dark and all of scheme of things. My co host Sharon, when we reviewed this book on quarantine comics, she revealed to me that she is a dark skinned Asian. I was like, really? Okay. And she gets that from her family. That's nuts to me. But you know, Mira talks about, you know, when she's in America, she's just another brown person. But in India, she's black. Yeah, I mean, like no skin whitening. Oh yeah, fair and lovely. Do you guys have what's you guys have SK two? Like, what do you guys have? Oh, that's bougie. That's the boozy one. All right. That's all I know about Korean skin care parties. It's sq two is like the Ferrari of skin care. It's made from patera I hear, anyway. Like when I see Korean skin care products where they say whitening, I don't really consider it to be skin bleaching because it's not, it doesn't have the chemicals to actually lighten your skin. When they say whiten, they mean brighten, meaning turning your dull, unexploded skin into something more dewy and shiny, but the marketing is there because they're like, oh, everybody wants to be like beautiful and fair. And it's like, well, I mean, if that's going to sell your product, sure, but that's not.

"The conflicting advice I don't write about ethnic stuff. Definitely capitalized on writing about ethnic stuff. Well, I mean, I'm assuming well, first and foremost, while this is a graphic memoir, it looks and feels different from many graphic novels and comics. And Mira has said, you know, it was an her own self experiment to break into comics, and it's not a world she is from. She is not a sequential artist. She taught herself to do this. She's an acclaimed author for a non graphic novel, right? Her first novel, sleepwalker's guide to dancing, it's actually a fictional account that mirrors kind of her life growing up. And so it's so. It's almost like the prequel to this book, even though it's not, right? And I mean, I couldn't help, but after reading this book, the first time in maybe or maybe not crying. I had to pick up that book to kind of understand and see her execute in the other style. So this book good talk is almost an evolution of her kind of wanting to try new things and try new mediums and try new storytelling formats to capture those conversations more vividly than maybe pros could. Yeah. Yeah, memo writing is a little bit tricky because you still want to have a relationship with the people that you write about in your memoir, whereas if you're writing a fictionalized story that's based on your real life, obviously there's a little bit of distance and I don't know. There's just like an organized story, a conclusion, whereas with good talk, it's literally a series of conversations. And there really aren't any easy answers when it comes to growing up as a person of color in America. And it really shows because her son asks really difficult questions. And as a parent, she's like, I don't really know the answer. I thought I would know the answer by the time I grew up, but I guess we're all still growing up and yeah, it was very interesting reading this as someone who did not talk about race with her parents growing up because of the cultural and language barriers. But obviously, my parents had their own racial prejudices and just like a lot of implicit biases and I could definitely relate to that while I was reading the book. I don't know about you guys because I don't know your experiences. I mean, so we've read a lot of memoirs for this book club and I think a lot of times I say the same things every time, which is, you know, even though Mira's experiences aren't exactly similar to mine, right? Personally, I can't relate to growing up as the only Asian in a neighborhood because I wasn't. I grew up here in this thinking valley where up until even through college, my schools were always worried the 50% Asian. So that feeling of isolation is something that I personally don't feel, but as someone who exists in America as a minority person of color, the feeling of there's this tension throughout the book that I think you pick up on if.

"I just reminded me of Daria in a way where it's like very minimalistic. And none of the faces have expressions. It's like all the same. Their paper cuttings, their actual paper cuts. Yeah, they're paper cuttings, yeah, yeah. I know some people were a little bit weirded out by that on goodreads. Why are they saying such serious things with such a straight face and I'm like, well, this book is about being honest and having difficult conversations. So I like the fact that there were no expressions on the paper cutouts. And there were a lot of things that I could relate to in the book as an Asian American immigrant, also being in an interracial relationship with a white partner, and I'm not South Asian, but colorism is definitely a thing in East Asian culture too. So there was a lot in this book. It was a lot of samples if that's like a correct way to put it. A trauma, an emotional trauma, greatest hits. Yeah. And Roman, this is your, I don't know how many, how many times have you read this book now? We're coming up on 5 or 6, 'cause I accidentally discovered this at the library. You know, back in 2019, 2018, 2019. And you know, that's peak Trump era. It was kind of a dark period for us. And I just kind of picked it up and I don't know. I'm a father of a young kid, my daughter who's a half Chinese half Indian she would have been three at the time. And you know, it was a scary time. It just generally what's going on in the world. And so kind of see someone talk about the moment that we're in, but also talk about kind of all the root causes of her fear and her emotions. It just really resonated, and then obviously, you know, when we, when we first reviewed it on quarantine comics, my comic book underground comic podcast, my reporter buddy Ryan. I actually brought Sharon my modern minorities host on it, and Sharon doesn't read a lot of comics. And it just opens up a lot of conversations in comparisons to kind of what our lived experience was. Even me as a man, hearing, share, and relate to being an Asian woman and kind of the expectations of parents in the kind of double standard against your brother. So I've read this over and over again in different lights, then when we had the privilege to interview Mira, obviously I read it one more time. And I feel like this is now a book I pick up every year or so I've gifted the spot God knows how many times as well to my sister to white friends even..

"This tough time. All right. Well, I think we should just dive in. The full title of this book is good talk, a memoir in conversation. And a memoir in conversations is a very accurate description in my opinion for the format of this book. Because everything is very short, all of the chapters are, I would say like maybe three, four pages at most. Yeah, it is a graphic novel so a lot of the book is in no comic book form. I guess as we get started, we were do you want to start with the book jacket description? Inspired by her popular BuzzFeed piece 37 difficult questions from my mixed race son. Here are Jacob's responses to her 6 year old son secure, who asks if the new president hates Brown boys like him, uncomfortable relationship advice from her parents who came to the United States from India one month into their arranged marriage, and the imaginary therapy sessions she has with celebrities from Bill Murray to Madonna. Jacob also investigates her own past from her memories of being the only non white 5th grader to win a daughters of the American Revolution essay contest to how it felt to be a brown skinned New Yorker on 9 11. As Ernest and moving as they are sometimes laugh out loud funny, these are the stories that have formed one American life. That's a very NPR. I heard that and I was like, I mean, I guess that's accurate, but it's a very NPR kind of review of it versus like, you know how the book jackets go, you know? Yeah, but they have to hook in the literary the literati. Yeah, you can't go in with you're gonna relive the trauma 16 election. And all of your feelings during that 8 month period. Well, I mean, but it's so much more than that. It's an emotional gut punch to like, I can't speak for everyone, but for a lot of our lived experience, the childhood, the teenage, the college, the relationships, the parents, and I'm sorry. This book, the way we described it, every time I read a podcast description and I talk about this, this book hits too close to home. And that's a compliment. That's the highest compliment. It's just like an emotional gut punch every other chapter. Yeah. So I guess we always start off with general impressions. So rero, what were your overall impressions of the book? I was pretty excited to read it because I've heard so many great things about it. And graphic memoirs, you know, I wouldn't say that they're a new genre, but there's definitely been a recent surge of them in my opinion, and it's been really, it's been really great to see graphic memoirs from Asian Americans and other immigrants and marginalized experiences, a lot of those stories don't really get the mainstream marketing, I guess. So I felt a good talk did get a lot of mainstream marketing because I just saw it everywhere. And I think Mira, she posted the first comic, the very opening chapter, I think, with her son talking about Michael Jackson and is he white or black? I think she posted that online first. And then it went super viral and then that's how she ended up making more comics and compiling that for this book. I think that's what happened. That's what I kind of read online, but overall I really liked it. I liked how the chapters were very short and digestible. I really like the art style. I don't know..

"Always account for students that depended on services they receive in school and also really needed that dedicated space, which they may not have had in their homeline. So how does that kind of learning incomplete learning, especially affect students who show horses? I think to some extent students that are on the road all the time actually, we're very prepared for a disruption because many of them missed a lot of school to begin with. So in some sense, that was actually an advantage, but in other senses, they were just as much subject to disorganized teaching methods and teachers that were overwhelmed to be perfectly fair to the teachers with a lot of undue expectation on meeting students that really needed different levels of instruction in different levels of attention all through one zoom class, which was fairly impossible or in other cases through asynchronous learning modules that essentially are leading comprehension check, take a test, not very growth oriented and much more just kind of check the box and move on. So students that show horses maybe had some resilience to this based on their experience, but I think the lack of continuity and how school was being delivered was a particularly new reality that they had to contend with as they dealt with the disruption to both their lives and their schooling. So Mira tell us a little bit about blue ribbon, scholars and how it works and where you're located. So we are located currently on site at his locale. We operate year round both in person and virtually depending on where our students are. At the moment, we are working to kind of create that space for our students where they can come learn and follow their home curriculum from either online school or virtual school or their regular private or public school. We work with each institution to make sure we are modifying the workload in the curriculum to help each student learn and grow and while covering the topics they need to cover also just actually.

Because i love halloween How is halloween out there for you guys. Well some. i don't know. I mean they're tricking treatise as well. They usually regular he young kids. I didn't think. I don't think you really get Older trick-or-treaters of. I'm not sure what it's like in canada but i think generally people just have a party in go drinking something but in glastonbury. It's it's a whole different thing because Here we celebrate someone festival nyc The day of the dead kind of thing so you on a your ancestors. Ana people lost and It's it's a little bit more a little bit with spiritual in class rate. It's not quite so quirky spooky. Thun on i just happen to like both To both a like a candle everyone. I've lost another everyone in my in my family that never met full on sent them my blessings of my love and then i dress like a ghost so do whatever. Yeah i don't know. I think it's just pause time a lot of people although people can't wait to just go halloween shopping. I'm a few halloween. Facebook groups and everyone keeps posting about this shop with got their. How do stock in now already. It's even august so there is that love the you said that In canada's savvy. Halloween seems to be like a dying fucking thing. Because it's just there's not as much activity as there used to be. When i was a kid. You know kids were out all the time. Every halloween is not so much anymore. Like nobody trusts anybody anymore. So it's a dying thing. But i really love that. You said what you said because i had a guest on the show and actress from sweden Big time actress. Sweden officer who said that in sweden. They didn't originally celebrate halloween but they did. Exactly what you're talking about or all the cemeteries they would be lit up with these scandals so it looked beautiful but then eventually halloween started to kinda make. Its way out there. A little bit from the us and they were a little bit reluctant in resistant to it. At first because i thought it was going to start replacing. You know that That tradition of theirs but they found a way to have both and now they're cooler with it. 'cause it's like other kids love halloween like you know. It's more western than what we do. But the kids love it so why why not. As long as we're not replacing what we do for the memory of people we lost and whatever. We can do both okay. It's it was just so commercial to them that they really didn't embrace it. I when it started win started to make its way out there. Halloween was a little too commercial. They didn't really care for it but once they realized it can coexist with what they always do their traditions. Then it's like okay. It's not so bad. i guess you know. They don't hate it as much now as they want. They're very resistant to it. Making his way out there So that's interesting. I thought that was pretty cool. to hear that history and what they do but I love that you also mentioned the day of the dead because the halloween town. And that's just the name i call it because i don't know what the fuck else to comment. I want that to have its own story. I want it to be I want every talent to be so Like have its own perspective of the main story so they all think the world is going to fucking end if somebody doesn't do something but they don't know who the fuck can do anything so the christmas town they're like just near round that's what they do. It's always snowing in that. They just keep their lights off and they they're all about being around family because time is almost up whereas in the october plies they're going to be like treating it like the day of the dead ish to the point where they figure if they live year round like everyday is day of the dead then maybe they can kind of reason with whatever they think it is. That's ending the fucking world and make peace with like we're going to go so we want to make sure we're on the right side of things. When we on the other side we want to you know appease whatever it is we believe To be on the right side of that and be happy when it's over you know what i mean and right so i want day for them to kind of be like they're offering you know Some kind of gesture by living the way they do every day is like a dead for them because they're trying to make peace you know with what's inevitably going to happen and hopefully be in favor of whatever it is that they choose to believe it. I'm not making it a religious thing. it's going to be very fictional but You know I thought that would be an interesting story. So it's all perspective is every town has a different perspective of how this ends. You know what i mean. And some are making peace with summer making the best of what time they got left. Some are trying to get prepared for what's coming after it's over and you know what i mean. Some are going to be stubborn. And just like nah. It's not happening. Others are gonna be all gloom-and-doom like you know we're screwed anyway get out of eight. Like is gonna be everywhere. You go is going to be interesting when you speak to people because they're all going to have unique perspectives just like life. Everybody has their own perspective. Of what happens when it's also done right. I really wanted to be interesting. Not everybody's all like. Oh we're so screwed blah blah blah. You know typical. I want everyone to kind of you know some you talk to them. You're like oh they're actually cool it they don't mind there. They have so much faith in you know bad. it's not completely over when it's over and whatever and other bugler more in the fucking here now and just want to spend time with those that they love for every moment they got left waiting for at least we go together at another be. We're going to be like nah. Something's gonna stop it. It can't fuck it in like that. And i'd be like fuck it. Let it in the sucks anywhere in your employees. Have those different people right. That's what i wanted to to really accomplish with different towns not just aesthetically different. But i want the story to kind of have.

"Up you guys tata's this podcast before we get started with today's show. I just wanna say My condolences to the family of joey jackson What a terrible loss. Way too young in my view. And now i just found out we've also lost dusty hill from cc top who passed away in his sleep. So my condolences to everyone on that side of things to his family. Friends and whatnot Such such a terrible loss man. So mike nolan says to everyone involved today. My guest is none other than beautiful and talented mira morningstar returning again to put up with my ass. Because just can't seem to get enough of that sucker for punishment. Right now we talk about A lotta things man about the movie industry working together in movies and everything else in between all the crazy rumors that get started about you. When you reach a certain level of fame and shit that gets nuts and Just working together on a lot of things. In general we get into the masters of the universe reboot as well. I don't know what you guys have heard about it. But heard mixed things i i hear. A lot of people are bagging. It so we'll see how it turns out. I'm watched it yet. So we're probably a little harsh on the show about it. But i do reserve judgment until i've seen so we're gonna watch together at some point and see what we think of it so anyways. Let's jump into it. Man babbled enough mirror morningstar returns all right now. That's yeah. I don't know why it does. I don't know whatever So anyways i order business now that we we touched fucking so much off air that so much time has. I probably forgot everything that we're going to talk about on the fucking job that's fine So there's that by far most calm down now. I know you want me. But you're gonna have to control yourself on you're kidding trying autists onto using For people that don't know. I assure you not just a narcissistic fuck I i'm joking. Because you've been slated for at least two so far rocketing roles in movies with me and in spider house. You're gonna be my fiance like eric down saying whatever so your movie. Yv so cheesy like that now. Nobody can say shit So that's why. I have fun when she liked that so before people think. I'm just that fucking egotistical and some kind of narcissism undertaken the pressman. How the fuck are you besides heiberg on stupid amounts coffee like i'm great haifa. A bit too hot but not really really. Well how are you. I'm not sweating like a fucking piece of rotisserie gold as it's a cooler for me But this is what date you all the time i fucking have you go to your attic in swelter in fucking heat. Just talk to my steve. So it is what it is. I guess you're trooper. I appreciate it. I know i i love it all of it. It's fine years. we are I gotta tell you though. We didn't talk about this up there. And there's you know want to say something to the bucket show We kind of agreed to watch the new human show together one day and i started to hear things about it and i was like. Oh oh no it's not. It sounds like it's fucking terrible So the more. I looked into it As i got down. I think i'd rather watch fucking paint dry. You know jesus christ You know. I thought with you i in i watch paint dry with no problem. Then i read about the show and i was like could we maybe watch that instead. We watched it just. Sounds like so fucking full on agenda Apparently he man dies off in the burst. Show he's kill law and then it all about teela. She's like fucking raging lesbian. And and it's a whole thing where it's so virtue signaling. Whatever it's not sincere or genuine. Like i don't buck who's a lesbian. Who's bucking whatever. But it just seems like it's by design trying to be all like you know. I'm sorry but you know. People are kinda right when they say we have share abro. Why can't he manhattan's goddamn show. Why why do we have to make this. Like some feminist agenda like kevin smith bucking dropped the ball and you know i hate to hear that because i really respected her and i still do. But let's say i'm not i don't have any judgment right now on him at the moment until i know more. The general vibe is he sold at suck money. Dick and Got chat tail face Everyone has to have their teeth sentence. Currently even cats So anyways it it just seemed like everything about it is so like agenda driven and then to find out that at one point kevin smith even said he was never a human fan. So good buck josh. So everyone's like oh you know he went off fuck in hollywood shit before people say fucking day. Yes okay. I get it like you know. Technically i guess i would be considered hollywood movies and whatever but we're not talking about that. We're talking about a person in terms of selling out for money. Not what they do for a living. You know what. I mean. I will never go fucking hollywood. Like and sell-out suck the money. Just shit that. I don't really agree with that. Stupid and just ingenuous and If getting a lot of backlash and you know there's some arguments for it where people are like. Well it's not called. He ran motherfucker. It's you know it's most of the universe there for everybody spoken story except it's focusing around one character And i get that you know what a lot of people might not get in. This industry is that it does have Several companies involved the have the rights to the character. One gumby has like universal has the rights to the show now Were mattel has the rights to the character and whatever so you're going through a lot of different channels to get right so therefore you kind of have to do at different than the original show. I get that but this just seems like they're beating you over the head with virtue signaling fucking agenda trying to be like you know politically correct for certain I guess.

"Mira my guest john. You're just making a really important point. Pick that up again. I at risk. For tying if i caught covert because i'm overweight. Okay that's my own fault. I might well lose twenty years or thirty years of life. If i caught cova break now if i took this vaccine people are telling. The chances are very slowly to die from the disease. If you got the vaccine. I'm not even arguing with the medical. Let's say that's true. Do i wanna by thirty years. Twenty years of life by entailing myself in the abortion industry. I want to secure my life at the expense of the desecration of the bodies of unborn children. I don't think it's worth it. And i don't think god thinks it's worth. I think god expects us as christians to be willing to accept a certain level of risk living in a fallen world where diseases run rampant. That's how things are the fall he does. He expects us to to take that risk. It expects us not to profane the bodies of unborn children with these vaccines that were developed which to me are no better than if they were made by. Joseph mingling using the dna china here literally. The only person who's talked about this. Nobody seems to have picked this up.

Hollywood Monsters with Mallory OMeara

"History is written by the winners by men early editors of science fiction anthologies choice to exclude by women and in doing so made many believe that women did not write science fiction in the genres earliest years. This is just one example. And by no. Means the only one mallory mira self-confessed monster lava and film. Ned discovered a similar story in one of her favourite monsters. Millicent patrick was one of disney's earliest female animators and went on to design one of the greatest film monsters of the creature from the black lagoon but a jealous smell. Coworker ensured that there was no prestigious career. A rating millicent. Mallory decided to set the record straight in her book. The lady from the black lagoon. Hollywood monsters and the lost legacy of millicent. Patrick and reestablish. Millicent of monster design mallory. Thank you for joining us. But before we get stuck into things would you please introduce yourself to our listeners. high Yeah thank you so much for having the ottoman cited to to talk about this with you. Three i m author of lady from the black lagoon an fulltime author. And i'm also fellow podcasters. I host the show reading glasses every week with my friend. brea grant. what did you hope to achieve by. Unearthing the story of million patrick and setting the record straight about her contribution to monster design. Well a few things honestly the impetus behind me working on in in writing from the black lagoon was just i wanted to know. Millicent has been my hero. Since i was a teenager and i wanted to satisfy my own personal curiosity i found out about her when i was seventeen and it just seemed creature from the black lagoon like nobody even knew if she was still alive. She didn't have a website. She didn't have a wikipedia entry. Nothing about her online. So i personally just really really wanted to know at as i started digging into her life and her work and in this book i i also just. I wanted people to know that we've always been here. You know i. I actually started working on this book before the metoo movement happened and while i think it's amazing that there's such a huge push right now to get more women in front of the camera behind the camera writing doing everything women everywhere in cosigned for me but i also think it's really important to have people know that women have always been here. We have a legacy here and millicent. Patrick is proof. That and if i could only unearth her story and bring it to the world than i could could prove it is funny. You say that. Because i remember i was a massive star trek fan still but i remember in high school being completely obsessed with original series star trek and then discovering that d c fontana was a woman and i was like women have been there from the beginning. We right star trek. Yeah so i. I definitely can get on board with excitement. It changes everything. I mean finding out that a woman who designed this incredible monster that i became completely obsessed with it changed my life. It made me realize up until that point all of my heroes in the monster world. Where met you know tom. Savini rick baker. Dick smith jack pierce. It never even occurred to me that women did those things and seeing just one single photo of seeing a woman working on the creature from the black lagoon. It broke my brain open. It was like being struck by lightning. And it you can. You can make a direct line from that moment in time in front of my computer. Seven seventeen to me becoming a filmmaker later on up reading a bit about medicine on. You mentioned that you back. Then she didn't have a wikipedia entry. She does have one now on your on it as well. Yes i mean we're competing is basically all from the bottom up until that point there was no there was really no biographical information about her and the stuff that was out there was largely false Sometimes because of Militants own she liked to fabricate biographical information about which was very fun for me to deal with as biographer But it's now now actually people who she is and she has a wikipedia. Entry people You google tons of stuff comes up. It's really it makes me really really happy. So how did she become raised from history in the first ice so the her boss at the universal studios monster shop and she worked there in the early nineteen fifties was a man named bud west more and he was part of a very very famous big family of makeup artist. The west morris His father actually. George west was the man who invented the idea of a makeup department so they were huge. Deal in hollywood at the time he had a massive amount of power and influence not just at universal but in the film world is a whole unfortunately he was also known for taking people's credit being very jealous of the other artists that worked with him if they were more successful or more talented than he was which wasn't hard to do And she designed creature and they shot the movie and it became very clear that the movie was going to be a huge hit. They the universal studios publicity department wanted to send millicent on a press tour to promote it and up until that point in history know in the fifties. There was no twitter. There was no. Imdb there is no way for people to really look into the details of of credits on films. You know back then. There was no like ten minutes end. Crawl at the end of a movie like we get now. There was only like these cards that gave the heads of department Credit for the things that they did so no matter. What but didn't design at on a movie increase in the credits creature. It says makeup. Bud west more So he never was challenged. People always just assume that he designed everything that came out of his shop

Carrie Snodgress Rocked in Diary of a Mad Housewife

"And this is who I want to talk to you about today. She was somebody who told me a lot about Neil Young some 20 years ago. And it was very surreal to me because in ways I don't even remember. She became my acting coach. And we spent a lot of time together talking about a lot more than the script I needed to learn. Her name was Carrie snodgress and a lot of harvest moon is about her. You know, maybe some of you heard about it. She was a tremendous actress. She was a hell of an actress. She won two Golden Globes Golden Globe Awards and only her second movie. She got best actress and best newcomer for her starring role in the movie diary of a mad housewife. In 1970, that's a movie. That's not easy to sit through. You know, particularly if you've ever hated your husband or hated the way women get treated, but this is a movie about she's the housewife of a relentlessly pissy fucking asshole of a husband and her kids are brats and psychotherapists tries to fuck her and it's just like everywhere she turns life's no good and finally she fucking snaps. But what she does in that film while she's not talking is so much more powerful than the words she was given. That's why she was nominated for best actress for the very same role a month later at the Oscars. Never before has an actress or an actor. One Golden Globes for best actor or actress and then best newcomer. It's never happened. In fact, best newcomer's gone. But Carrie was the first and last.

Russell Westbrook's Wizards Reunion

"First of all. Can you just take us through the winding road of how russell westbrook ended up with the washington wizards so at some point over the offseason westbrook made it clear to the rockets that he wanted them to find him a new home. Something is up in houston. Tell our tim macmahon in. Adrian were ski that both russell westbrook and james harden have expressed uncertainty about the direction of the franchise. And when you have a guy who makes that sum of money and you have to match salaries it just becomes very difficult to find a market and that's kind of why you see a lot of these guys on supermax contracts. Getting swamped see john. Wall and russell westbrook ending up in a similar situation is the only two guys that are comparable because their salaries of the exact really try to make sense but one hundred and thirty two million one hundred and thirty two million. Okay ready to pull a trigger. That i think it was more of like you know what we think. Your guy will be better for us and we think our guy would be better for you. So why don't we just compromising.

"First of all. Can you just take us through the winding road of how russell westbrook ended up with the washington wizards so at some point over the offseason westbrook made it clear to the rockets that he wanted them to find him a new home. Something is up in houston. Tell our tim macmahon in. Adrian were ski that both russell westbrook and james harden have expressed uncertainty about the direction of the franchise. And when you have a guy who makes that sum of money and you have to match salaries it just becomes very difficult to find a market and that's kind of why you see a lot of these guys on supermax contracts. Getting swamped see john. Wall and russell westbrook ending up in a similar situation is the only two guys that are comparable because their salaries of the exact really try to make sense but one hundred and thirty two million one hundred and thirty two million.

"It was an ambitious project that though it failed would become part of the iconography of a decade in september nineteen ninety one the first term residents moved in to biosphere to a three acre volume built to be an artificial materially closed ecological system biosphere one being the earth itself a texas oil billionaire. Funded it to study. How people might one day be able to manage a self sustaining ecosystem for life on mars. It proved to be a lot harder in practice than it was on paper. The oxygen levels would drop too low. The crew didn't really know how to grow crops for food. Their pollinator soon died out and the ants moved in not just any aunts crazy ants. My name's moxy and this is your brain on facts. They go marching to by two. They're the subject of to cgi movies from nineteen ninety. Eight and a picnic wouldn't be complete without them today. We're talking about ants. This topic comes to you by popular demand to social media comments an email. That's a new record. So thanks to rachel. A prodigious and kate from strange animals podcast. We really should think about ants more often than we do considering how many of them there are. I've often enjoyed dropping the fact that the ant population is equal to the human population by weight. But is it. The claim comes from one thousand nine hundred ninety four book journey to the ants by harvard university professor and a german biologist. They based their estimate on the estimate of a british entomologist who calculated that the number of insects alive on earth at any given moment was one million trillion. If ants make up one percent of the insect world that's ten thousand trillion according to the book individual workers weigh on average between one two five milligrams according to the species when combined all ants in the world taken together way about as much as all human beings. So if you're going to play on a seesaw with a bunch of ants you would need about a million of them on the other end to balance you out assuming you weigh sixty two kilos or about one hundred and thirty seven pounds which i will tell you. I don't with around thirteen thousand ant species worldwide. There comes a lot of variety. They range from smallest less than one millimeter long to over fifty millimeters or two inches. That's the aptly named titanic mira gigante so weights vary too but experts seem to agree the average weight of an ant is less than ten milligrams but even among experts. No one really knows how many aunts there are in the world. A bbc documentary claims. There are not ten trillion ants but one hundred trillion though it still suggests that the total weight of the ants equals the total weight of humans. Even by the author's own math their calculations are wrong. If we estimate that the seven point two billion humans on the planet weigh a combined three hundred and thirty two billion kilos or three hundred sixty six million tons and ten thousand trillion aunts weighing an average of four milligrams. Each we get only forty billion kilos or forty four million tonnes or about nine pounds of human for every pound of ants even if we allow for the smaller human population in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and the smaller humans. It's still back of napkin. Math at best one expert does say that the numbers might have inaccurate at one time. Probably about two hundred and fifty years ago. We must also remember that. Humans are getting fatter all the time. We're not just increasing in population we're increasing in fatness. So i think we've left the ants behind another way to try to wrap your head around. How many aunts there are is to look at the biomass of them. One of my favourite weird history and animated rant youtube channels sam annella compared the biomass of several animals and visualized them as spheres literal animal planet's for example. If all the blue whales in the world could be mushed together like plato. They'd make a spheroid about one hundred and forty meters or four hundred and fifty feet across blue. Whales are huge but there aren't very many of them. In contrast the chicken planet is more than twice that size three hundred and thirty meters or eleven hundred feet across their small. But we've read a lot of them. The math was tricky enough. What with trying to come up with a density for each animal. But sam found order of

Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS

"So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin. Himself is flipped a apparently senator McConnell may have slipped as well. I think. It's unfortunate. This game of delaying nominations has gone on for quite a long. I have a colleague who waited two years before she withdrew for circuit court position because it wouldn't allow vote. That's just sort of power politics on both

What Trump and Biden Plan for Small Businesses

"As election day quickly approaches, we want return to our ongoing election series. We're taking a deep look at how president trump and Democratic presidential nominee joe. Biden. Differ on major policy issues. Today, we're going to focus on small business. The pandemic has been especially challenging for them. Thousands of firms have already been forced to close joining us now for a look. At. What the candidates say they will do is Journal, Economics reporter Amira Imo Kway High Mira Hi thanks for having me. So both candidates acknowledged some strength with the paycheck protection program. But there are some distinct differences as far as involvement and approach. Let's first start with President Trump yes. So the main thing president trump has done is he's encouraged Congress to. Come together with the administration and reopen the paycheck protection program that program expired in August and so small businesses have not been able to apply for it since then so president trump has signaled his support for reopening the paycheck protection program with about one hundred, thirty, five, billion dollars in funding that was roughly the amount in unused funds that was left when. The program closed and what about Joe? Biden's view. So former Vice President Biden has really emphasized what his campaign characterizes as shortcomings in the paycheck protection program and his platform calls for overhauling the program and doing things like including more oversight of the program and also a provision that would make it so that businesses with fifty employees or fewer would be guaranteed. Funding through the program if they are eligible for it, and some of the experts I spoke with said that that provision would be really important because when the paycheck protection program I opened a lot of businesses were initially unable to access the funds because the first round of funding quickly ran out small businesses whether they are in a pandemic or not. Always. Face challenges when particular difficulty can be getting assistance even though there are programs available. What is Joe Biden? Vision as far as accessibility is concerned so Joe Biden's platform proposes something that his campaign calls the Small Business Opportunity Fund. So this is a fun that would receive thirty billion dollars in federal funding initially, and it would make investments it do things like. Direct. Ten billion dollars to state and local programs that provide the sort of venture capital that businesses need to start and businesses need to grow and the trump. The trump platform on this trump platform or pitch has really been sort of highlighting things that have been popular during his first term. So for instance, he has talked about tax cuts and his administration. Implemented a tax deduction that lowers income tax bills for many small businesses. His campaign has also focused on sort of the regulatory approach that the trump administration has taken and some small business advocates say that that deregulatory approach has really helped small businesses given them less burdensome regulations to work with and basically taking away some uncertainty and that has has benefited them. Within small businesses I WANNA. Focus on minority owned small businesses. This election is happening as the nation has an ongoing conversation about racial equality. What is the White House of you as far as specifically helping minority owned small businesses. Well what's really interesting is that this area is one where the trump campaign in the binding campaigns actually a common ground I think both campaigns have acknowledged that for instance, there are concerns that minority owned small businesses had trouble accessing the paycheck protection program or that minorities tend to have more hurdles to overcome when they want to start businesses because minority households tend to have less access to. The kind of wealth that they used to finance small startups, and so the trump campaign has proposed what it's calling its platinum plan for Black America and in that plan the the campaign is proposing, for instance, giving more funding to these kinds of lenders called Community Development Financial Institutions. These are financial institutions that focus on lending and other financing to minority communities, rural communities, and other underserved communities. And some specifics of Abidin plan. So Mr Biden proposes using that Small Business Opportunity Fund that we talked about earlier to, for instance, expand lending through state local and other programs that have had a successful track record of providing lending to minority owned businesses, and his plan also calls for expanding lending through those community development financial institutions that we talked about.

The Greatest Barn Finds of All Time

"Barn fines. The long lost cars with a built in mystery, we're addicted to these lost and found time capsules partly because of the story they tell about the past but also of how they feel in the president like something that time traveled into. Now with decades old potential waiting to be tapped and to be clear, these cars don't need to be found in a barn. Okay. Today are barn finds come from parking garages and Australian chicken coop and even buried underground some because. What's the rarest car ever found? What's the most valuable and how did these automotive treasures get lost in the first place? A normal person loses their car keys once in a while. But who is the person that can lose an entire car? especially one like a prototype shelby Mustang or a LAMBORGHINI MIRA s here's a hint. They're usually very rich people. We'll also get into Wi Carr fans continue to love these barn fines. Maybe an age where literally all the information in the world sits in our pocket. The idea of hidden treasure is more precious than ever before and with so many cars feeling blander and more mass produced than ever unique cars feel rare than ever to a barn find always has its own one of a kind story behind it. So I think that's a really good point I would say that like barn finds potentially like. Don't exist in the way that they used to because to me a barn find. Also. Suggest some sort of like. Deal or like you. You know what? I. Mean Like it's like, Oh, I found this car. Then I bought it for this much money whereas like now the person. Can just google it like I know I I make a living everyone in this makes a living talking about cars on the Internet, but the Internet is ruined cars everything is valuable now. Yeah. It tennis sucks I. Think it hasn't ruined the joy of driving or getting to experience like new things in that way, but I see what you're saying whereas. A lot of things are described value immediately, which I I really hate God on bring a trailer this week there is some Honda accord from the mid seventies that sold for like twenty one thousand dollars and I was like that car it's not worth that amount of money just because it's A condition four thousand dollars to a huge Honda accord. But because like there's such a hype around like Oh man this is like in this such and such condition with this miles and it's There's only so many of them like that's when money kind of ruins it in that culture of like wanting to have. A car that valuable I don't know the same thing happened though like fifteen years ago with barn find particularly mopus because those cars Warner's common back in the day. So when people found like Barracuda or Challenger sitting somewhere in a barn there like a meal like discards worth a million dollars no rusty piece of. and. It's only worth a million dollars if it was original parts matching everything. But because you found some shell behind your uncle's place, it doesn't mean Jack it's. Clearly. Look I'm a I'm a bitter Mo- par, Guy. It's been the the the. Been in completely over inflated, which is why I had to buy an imperial instead of like a real muscle car. Of. This attitude that everything has to be some crazy valuable car for to be cool which is not true. Your car is really cool knowing don't feel bad about but Joe, I know I don't know any sometimes Nolan's car. No one's cars parked at my house sometimes I go and sit in it I I. I'm glad. It's fun. It's like I said Mitt I think like when the Sun's going down. Unlike man, this thing is going to be cool when it runs, we'll be it's it's I ordered a bunch of brake parts which have arrived James outs There might be some more boxes on the way, but I'm GONNA refresh the brake system, and after that, the big hurdle becomes getting the car to run and that's when I can find out what else needs to be fixed. So. is it are you converting from drum brakes disc? No, it's. It's got drum brakes around. So I ordered a bunch of drum brake. Specific stuff like. Brake shoes and wheel cylinders. Brake lines return springs all this stuff I also live on the top of a gigantic hill. It's to be a real trial by fire situation. We're going to go around your little neighborhood there first before we do anything drastic. This is like a seventeen thousand pound rockets. Zooming down. Well, we know that we know the break works. So let's get right into. Finally. With what might be the OG OF BARN FINES? All right. This car probably has the record for the longest time hidden away it spent. Okay. You guys ready for this. One hundred and twelve years sitting in a shed in Austria before being uncovered in two thousand fourteen. Wow. The car I'm talking about is the Porsche p one also known as the Edgar Lunar Electric Vehicle, and even calling a car might be a bit of a stretch, Armstrong whatever you WanNa call though what's not up for debate is that the P. One is the world's first ever Porsche designed by then twenty three year old Ferdinand Porsche Ferdinand even employees the nineteenth century version of a watermark actually hand carving P.

"You are not hearing elsewhere. We'd like to welcome today for the very first time. Dr Mira Farka economics professor at Cal State Fullerton well known speaker throughout southern California on current economic conditions. Doctor Mera Welcome to strategic investor. Radio very pleased to have you thank you. Charlie is always a pleasure to be here so Dr Mirror a little of your background. Here you arrived in the USA from Albania Age. Seventeen with two crisp on one hundred dollar bills to your name here. He went to cal. State Sacramento then to Columbia for a masters and then a PhD in economics started at Deutsche Bank. That's back when they could pay their bills then at cal state fullerton now for many years. You're a dynamic presenter. Because I know that because I've seen you and I was recommended to to your presentation by a CPA who actually got excited about it and Who Said you've got to come here this lady? She is dynamic and funny and and you were everything and more and it was all about current economic conditions. And the like so. Let's start with giving us a brief background of yours. All Charlie did better than I would. Just add a little bit more sort of background information. I imagine. I grew up in Albania during the Cold War This is when I'll be firmly within the socialist camp and when the regime change which was after the fall of the Berlin Wall in nineteen ninety. I got an opportunity. I was very lucky to get a scholarship for from Fresno state of all places and finding a little background story on that. I We we got actually me and my friends and I my high school friends. We got hold of this College Books if if. I don't ever seen them. But there are sort of like I think their title was the complete book of colleges. So there's this big thick books with all the addresses of all university the United States. And if you look at these books I don't think they exist anymore. I think they're now digital. But if you look at them they're Kinda SORTA pleased alphabetically by state. So we start with your Alabama and Arkansas Zona in Alaska and so on and then you come to California i. California has many universities by the time I came to California so I started alphabetically. I'm lacking to California. I ran outta posted money. I was actually writing letters to these schools Sullivan. I WANNA come to the United States to study. But I'm ED please but I don't have any money. My parents didn't have any money. No one really had any money you know. Being at the time was the regime right by the time I got a California ran out of money. So I'm very glad. Fresno state took pity on me as the actually offer real scholarship. It was a fantastic opportunity and I did a being economics. A minor in mathematics at Fresno State. I Then applied to Columbia University. I got accepted Finished my bs there. My areas of specialty our financial like on all kind of between macro economics and finance financial markets I worked I saw. I would never I was done with academia by then. I thought I would never go back to ED little. You know I actually joined joined. Deutsche Bank as a senior economist that worked in their ethics Research Desk and also the ECON group. This is the group that is responsible for economic forecasts of the Bank We actually put out forecast for our clientele. I was in New York and London base and also places and then a few years later. I made a transition back but I could be me. I came to cal. State Fullerton I'm where I teach economics. I'd eat financial Economics is one of my areas I'm also the CO director of the Woods Centre for Economic Analysis and forecasting as you mentioned and we do a lot of public speaking Sort of laying the outlook for the economy. The landscape where we see going. I'm also consulted with I. Actually I adjust market As well which is one of the biggest consulting firms These days are getting bigger and bigger. Well it sounds like you stay plenty. Sounds like you stay. Plenty of busy here Mirror I try try out of trouble so MIRA tell us. Why did you choose a career economics? Well as I mentioned I mean. I came to economics in in in a bit of an unusual way usually I grew up In the US would have had economic exposure to the field at least in Highschool Brad. Stevens earlier We didn't I grew up in Albanian was still under communist regime socialist regime In my formative years well until middle of high school. So we learn Marxism so I never had any free market economy Lectures I actually When the regime fell and I was still in high school. There was a third year of junior year of high school The same lecture that taught us Marxism started teaching free market economy. This when the roots. Obviously they didn't go very well So when I came to Fresno state originally my major was philosophy and sociology but under the advice of my one of my mentors that cal state Fresno I was still give it a look at they could economic scores and I did and I never looked back. I love the course. I loved it. Because it's sort of merges. Two things my to sort of primary interests which is emerges the exact sciences which is mathematics statistics and so on and also the social sciences and the business aspect of it so it. Kinda performs a nice marriage of the two and that slayer I met for that first. Economic course change the course of my life. Well the the you know th that's quite a story especially given the fact that I grew up in a communist country where he really didn't have economics as we know it free market etc learning learning. Abc's way after everybody who basically grew up in a different completely different system. And sorta you seeping through Moses. You see it everywhere and we never got that and to me was sort of a sort of a a light came on at that point and I will never forget that you know a mirror. I I love to hear stories yours because you know for those of us who grew up here and we just take the whole place and everything for granted. It's inspiring to hear what you talk about. And what you went through to get to the states and showing up with very limited resources. And your and your family didn't have resources. So congratulations to you for You know this is bootstrapping. His finest here. Oh No thank you but I have to say I mean it's it's I was lucky. number one but also it's the it's the system itself right. It's the country that kind of gives you the opportunities and I'm forever grateful for being here because I don't think I would get the same opportunities anywhere else in the world that I mean it while we appreciate hearing that so. So let's start at the ten thousand foot level here. What do you wish as a PhD in economics and a professor and one? Who SPEAKS ON ECONOMICS? All the time and I can tell everybody that was one hour that was absolutely filled with data and information that was applicable at the level the state level the local level. It's such A. So what do you wish? Mira that more people better understood about economics. What are the Common Misperceptions Economics that you wish weren't there to such a large degree for the question Charlotte. Because I don't get out of the question very allston Almost never which made me think makes me think a little bit There's a couple of things that I think. People have to understand about economics that I think are sort of either misunderstood or there's a lack of knowledge first of all. We all have to have an understanding that it's not an exact science I mean and that's perhaps what makes fascinating right. There are large standard errors around anything. We say anything. We do economics. When I present a forecasts there are standard airs around that number that provide obviously and I think presenting sort of a Preparing and presenting these forecasts for the school. And when I did it for Deutsche Bank SORTA taught me to quite a bit to be basically. Don't be a great degree of humility. Right you could along their start. Lar- standard errors. This is this is the one of the main lessons that I think people may get. Frustrated with. Economics is not an exact science and went through does not exactly go for their standard errors around and the second thing that I kind of notice is that not only issues but some issues are big and complex and they kind of require sort of a deeper understanding requires an explanation that goes beyond a tweet goes beyond eight Hashtag goes beyond a soundbite and I think people get very sort of bogged down into getting just highlight with one word or couple of words and that kind of desert injustice with certain degree and the third thing I would say and I mentioned this. A little earlier is a little bit of a lack of misconception. The lack of knowledge about the economic realities. I give you a simple example My own students. I always do this every time. I have a class and I started. I first class interject introduce myself. I'm the course I started asking then broad questions about just general global economy global facts and and you know ask him. Who's the biggest economy? The answer is China WHO's Who's the biggest? Us biggest trading shot partner. The answer is China. In what countries the population growing faster? The answer's always China. So for everything seems all these Lee there is some this conceptual by the data more. Broadly if you go out there and talk to and I love to talk to small business people. I love to talk to service people all day long. But there's a broad misconception about simple things like you know how many people earned the minimum wage if the surveys show that I the number is lobby. People perception of foods. Earning the minimum wage is actually much larger than what the number is people. Think it's twenty five to thirty percent when reality is about. Three percent ruined all. How big is it? What what what is inflation invariably? The answer is eight percent ten percent or even twelve percent and of course we can grapple about inflation. And how you actually measure it. But it's certainly not ten percent. So there's this this broad sense of misconception about or knowledge of data I would say That that that that I find not only among my students but also just the broader public out there. Thanks for that input because I think generally you're right we live in a world of slogans and sound bites and You know and and we don't get a lot of hard data and often that hard data is highly criticized such as you know the Consumer Price Index. And you know things like that. So let's move on for a second here MIRA tell us I know we hear a lot about group. Think these days both in corporations on university campuses etcetera Is there one or more areas of economics where you find yourself differing in perception and perhaps belief or opinion from your peers or colleagues or or many other economus? So it's exactly what you mention. It's it's it's not a specific area. It's mostly in the approach it is exactly that. Sorta herd mentality that they're that group. Think that I think has seeped in more commonly sort of more more commonly observed more recently last five to ten years. Then let's say twenty years ago but it's certainly a pervasive feeling That I get I mean. Look I'm a firm believer of what Mark Twain says that when you find yourself on the side of the majority it's time to pause and reflect and I think I see unfortunately very little of that being done but my colleagues and I'm speaking here for academia but also those work in the government does work for the Federal Reserve? I'm a lot of my friends that work at the Fed and It's almost like the moment they get a contract and they get a job at decided They go from being critical thinkers. I mean the Fed has done some good things have done some things that I disagree with. But they were critical singles to be begin with is then you see them sort of like becoming cheerleaders almost overnight and you sorta miss this critical assessment of the Fed policies and in the same spectrum. In a way I think perhaps this is sort of following up on the same idea..
