"Was premier child development psychologists of the twentieth century and worked with eric. Erickson in benjamin spock among others to create the arsenal children's families center here in in the pittsburgh region and on one occasion brought a world renowned sculpture l'est to arsenal and the sculptural. said what. What are you gonna do. What is it that you want me to show kids end. Her peer instruction to him was. I just want the kids to see you loving the clay in front of them and to me. That's just a perfect moment of margaret conveying to another educator in this case in artist that idea that attitudes are caught and and how it is that we do simple things reframe what we do to convey that joy and love of learning which kids young people adults need to see continuously. And so your book is it for educators and school leaders or is it for everyone in many walks of life with a joyful thing. Is that a lot of people. Say i'm glad as a human being that i read this book. There's something so instructive and affirming uplifting about fred rogers blueprints for life at said. We wrote this book particularly mindful of the role of parents families and caregivers and then our educators the teachers the librarians after school directors. Anyone who works in what we would describe as the carrying profession where they are responsible for the being an instruction of of children whether that's at home or school Dads that Day you know. We think anybody who knows. Loves fred rogers will love this. We certainly hope that's the case. Will we've been finding as the book has been out since april it is slowly making its way around the world and what we've been finding and hearing from folks in other countries where mister rogers neighborhood you know is not know where fred is not a cultural icon. That this book is resonating. Even for them and i think that speaks to the timelessness and the universality of what fred was teaching a deep humanity of what frank was teaching. So we hope that yes parents educators caregivers. Yes fans of fred rogers. But as greg said hopefully any human being will find something in red dot. I would think that's probably true. I've worked in creative services along time in my career. And i definitely found some great takeaways out of it myself so it's it is a great read. I read the book and it's really great. So where can listeners find access to the block end or any additional resources or contact with you. How how can that be found..

"What happens if i take apart this toy in. Look in in what what's inside. One can't be curious absent. The grounding effects that a teacher or educator creates in creating that safe respecting environment where you say. I belong and i wanna learn so you kind of touched upon creativity as well and i wanna lead into that because i feel like curiosity and creativity are very intertwined But creativity as well. I feel like there's a kind of a label that's placed on some individuals on. This is a creative individual. This is not so much a creative individual so in your book you highlight a study that was conducted by dr george land that tested for contract creativity in children beginning with one thousand five year olds. Tell us a little bit about what was tracked and kind of what does that mean tracking that creativity from childhood through to adulthood. Yeah this is a really interesting study So in nineteen sixty dr. george land tested degree to of thousand. Five year olds using test that he developed for nasa of all places. What you found was that ninety. Eight percent of those five year olds scored so high on documents tacitly qualified as creative. Jesus we know that kids come up with strange sometimes ingenious solutions to problems. They paint pictures and they make up stories and songs they're inherently create anyone who's spent time ratified year old. Tends to see this pretty quickly. George land you know. He discovered something else. He tested at seeing rupa five-year-old's every five years and what he found. Was that ten years old. The share of creative geniuses shelves from ninety eight percent to thirty percent and when they turn fifteen it felt from thirty percent to twelve percent by the time they were adults share of creative geniuses and fallen from ninety eight percent to two percent and milan. It is team. Concluded was as greg alluded to earlier that. Create your alert. That creativity is something that's inherent to all of us as we saw ninety eight percent of girls..

"These tools matter not get into briefly what they are so just to give you an example. A couple of years ago. Google was trying to figure out what makes a good boss for a long time. They had just assumed that the people who know the most stuff should be promoted. You know if you can write computer code in your sleep and you're automatically going to be a good boss. Google being google decided development that they did this massive analysis of their own teams. They studied performance evaluations at employee surveys exit interviews and what they found was that content is important. There is no way around it. If you're going to work at google if you're gonna be boss you have to be a great programmer. But among the things they found that mattered most content expertise ranked almost last the more important thing. The things gubler's wanted to see in their bosses. Where things like communication. There were things like curiosity. Can you come up with creative solutions to problems. Do you care about your colleagues in their wellbeing. They wanted all these very human qualities that fred spent so many decades teaching mister rogers neighborhood and easier what. He called his tools for learning in the book. We break down as curiosity creativity. Communication collaboration Learning and growing which is the sort of umbrella term for things like growth mindset in connection which is of course what we remember rogers for most which is the power of human relationships. All of these tools have been shown not only google but in just about every aspect of life to be essential to children's success up to ten times more predictive of children's long-term success in test scores. They have been shown to benefit everything from academic outcomes to mental health. Even physical health and children's overall wellbeing. They cost almost nothing to develop. And a hinge on the very things that we think at rogers thought make life were living. Which are you know. Self acceptance close and loving relationships and a deep regard. Were for our neighbors so again. This is is being ahead of his time. If things he focused on in the neighborhood are now scientifically proven to be essential to children's success and at places like google. They are the most essential things you can have succeed in. So you know we always feel like there's individuals in the world that are more or less curious You know with curiosity being kind of an inherent part of them or not as much. So how can curiosity be incited in oneself or others or is it something that's built into all of us what you just said it in. It's it's built into each of us. It's not something that some people have in some people don't rather it's a learned behavior that we lose our curiosity and we lose our creativity and so what we need to do is to tap into that curiosity that we have as young kids and the ways in which we ask questions and the ways that we dance and sing explore. What is it that we can do to maintain that sensibility. And as fred rogers would say a great atmosphere for learning that supports that sort of curiosity. So what is it that a teacher doesn't classroom or librarian does in a library. Space will so much of it goes back to what ryan was just saying about creating a human and humane environment creating space and atmosphere for learning where kids feel like they belong where they matter where they feel respected where they feel like. They're safe both. Psychologically and physically. It's those grounding elements. That are absolutely critical and essential for the moments that we then begin to be curious about. What's possible and and start to wonder about what happens if i put these two numbers together..

"I have the chance to talk with greg and ryan about their book. The research of dr george land and tools identified as he central learning. Welcome gregg welcome ryan. Thanks for joining me. I thank you expert joining us absolutely so your book. I've already said the title when you wonder you're learning and it's based on mister rogers enduring lessons. What prompted you to write a book based on mister rogers and y y fred. Rogers will first and foremost. It's a book about learning and it's a book that stems from nearly fifteen years work here in south western pennsylvania for fifteen years schools museums libraries in all of the educators who work in these and other learning spaces have been coming together under something called remake learning which is amazing network of educators in and out of school pre k. Through higher ed thinking about what is relevant what is engaging what is equitable in support of young people and the learning experiences that were trying to create for them. I mentioned this because very early on. We started talking about fred rogers. And it's easier in twenty twenty one than in twenty. Oh seven to articulate this but we talk about the fred method and the ways in which these educators involved in remake learning. Take advantage of what fred rogers did. And we can think about fred's work in a simple formula whole child. Plus learning sciences equals the fred method. That is like fred rogers. These educators are grounded in child development theory and practice understand what's developmentally appropriate for children in youth and they're also learning from what we're learning about learning itself from places right here in our backyard like carnegie mellon university and the university of pittsburgh but also campuses higher education and research institutes across this country and i mentioned the learning sciences. Because for me and ryan this was our big. Aha that is seeing fred rogers as a learning scientists not just as that childhood hero of ours not just as some convenient story to talk about education and learning but really understanding fred rogers and his work as someone who was a learning scientist a learning engineer. Someone who was deliberate end intentional about what it is that he did with his program. And that's what we're finding among educators all across south western pennsylvania who are involved in remake learning. One of the things that struck early on was just how far ahead of his time. Fred rogers was You know if you talk to. Susan the leading learning scientists today. Many of whom are working right. You're in pittsburgh at places like a carnegie mellon if you read the research papers if you go to their conferences Which we've been doing a lot of over the past few years. They talk a lot like fred does. It's interesting they don't necessarily sound by scientists at i. They don't talk about charts and graphs. They don't talk about things that are being measured increasingly. They're talking about things. Like how do we make sure kids feel safe. How do we make sure kids feel like they belong to a community that cares about them. How do we make sure that kids view that they are loved and capable of loving when learning scientists speak today. They sound a lot like mister rogers. And mister rogers neighborhood. Once we realized that we realized we had a book on our hands and we realized that what fred was doing. You know starting in nineteen sixty eight in many ways. Learning sciences is just catching up to him. Now you're absolutely right so far ahead of his time. It's it's there's so much more to what he offered. I think than you know. Maybe what was on face value the television personality as beloved as that was so in your book. You describe tools for learning And they're described as essential..

"But as a child who's formative years took place during the two thousand, eight financial collapse I've seen the government throw a lot of money to a lot of industries INC's in various programs with that caveat that I don't know if the debt will ever mean anything this far doesn't seem like it has. So if the government is going to throw a lot of money at something, it's just my personal philosophy that should be something that goes directly to the American people and makes their lives better because even if we don't make. That money back we could make so many people's lives so much better I don't think I need to tell you all this. But if you need some arguments case, if you ever get like in a discussion with friends or family, just think about all these situations that could be cured with access to higher education there could be more doctors to stop this health crisis. There could be actual hopes and dreams because kids know that they would have a guaranteed shot in higher education no matter what kind of money their family makes. Kids growing up in poor neighborhoods would not have to resort to illegal means to make money or play a dangerous sport that guarantees head trauma because getting a scholarship is the only way that they're ever going to get out of that lifestyle and get an education. I don't want it to sound like a stereotype that I'm bringing it up but I've heard athletes like Chris. Carter, say that he knew the only way to escape his situation was. By playing football and I. Think Cam Newton said something similar maybe Richard Sherman one of the athletes that's usually outspoken. But yeah what it takes to convince business people to vote for Biden then sure. But I am sick in general of how this how are we going to pay for it? Argument always follows Democrats plans but when Republicans WanNA, cut taxes for big corporations, nobody bats, I accept praise them. That's not even the biggest significance as I was. Talking about though I mentioned than I. Found this in CNBC and while it is still NBC, they do tend till like traditional economics, which usually favors capitalism to the highest degree. This story and other stories saying that the market will actually like if Joe Biden is elected really showed me that there's something going on in the undercurrents. You didn't see this last time around there weren't all these types of articles being written about how great the economy. was and how it would be good if Hillary Clinton was elected or how great her plans were. This shows me that if even Wall Street is getting behind Joe Biden, which isn't going to be necessarily popular for folks who favor Bernie Sanders, but it is important in getting trump out because that means that these high dollar folks these highly educated folks win for trump last time are now on Biden side, which is really really important needless to say. aright folks that's GonNa be it for me today I do a little bit of a modified clip show here where I play some of trump's. Well, we'll call them greatest hits for lack of a better better word going all the way back to his original campaign all the way back to twenty fifteen some of the awful awful things that he's had to say in any case, stay safe vote vote vote vote now see here on Monday by the way before we go if you don't mind I might start a Friday song suggestion where choose A. New Ending. Song every week just something that I've been into something I think might be under appreciated and for this week I'm choosing no time for caution by Hans, Zimmer, it's from the soundtrack for the movie interstellar you might remember it from the docking seen towards the end of the movie I won't spoil it if you haven't seen the movie yet but man talk about a movie that gets you thinking in any case that's right at the end. So I hope you do enjoy when their eyes widen in amazement as old faithful burst into the sky. When they gaze upon your Semites, some nights towering sequoias. I had a two week regimen of hydroxy.

Franois Clemmons: Hi from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

"There has been so much written about Mister Rogers telling you that if you wanted to stay on the TV show. You could not be out of the closet. Did that make you adjust how you were behaving and presenting in private even in your personal life? Yes because I felt people first of all they show the photograph to friend so I felt an obligation not to be caught in those compromising situations because you see the first time someone told him I had gone to a club down in Pittsburgh called the play pin so I went there with a buddy of mine. We were dancing sweating and I go home. That was the extent of it but evidently somebody took it upon themselves to tell him that the other I've seen there and I felt violated adult man. Who in the world is telling him what? I'm doing what I do when I'm not on the show is my business and yet you ultimately agreed to stay in the closet. If you're GONNA stay on the show that was an emotional slash spiritual decision. I began to feel that I was therefore reason. Not just a happenstance. Once you have this inner feeling that I was at a meeting with destiny that I could not be casual and I couldn't deny what I knew I wasn't going to. I thought about what? What would it be like if you don't hold up your end of the bargain if you don't sacrifice in a way that has honored brings honor so? I really had a sense of obligation and commitment responsibility. Those words they haunted me. And when you say you had a responsibility who or what was that responsibility to the responsibility was to have a good face for white people who are watching this show. People were a little different in how they felt about my being on that show but white people would say all. That's terrible. Mr Rogers was so kind to you and you are gay person. You were caught in that alley that boxed up the back of the truck or somewhere and that's a disgrace. That's what I felt. I could not allowed to happen. We were there any out. Gay Black People in the media at that time No there weren't a lot. No you know who led the band the the European rock singers George and another one who just died. I was that David Bowie. Yes yes yes. Yes yes now. You're asking me specifically about black people. None of these guys are named or black. And I ask that because I didn't know if you ever considered not taking Mr Rogers advice and becoming out because there were so few media the I'm I'm a front runner. I do not care what they think. I'm speaking of my personal opinion. I've been blessed with strength and I will take care of myself. I don't care what they think but I love the man who did Fred Rogers and it would have been very very painful for him to have to go through that whole episode so I sat and I thought about it and I said you can do this you can and you will. I hadn't had love from father and it was so unconditional so bountiful that I sent. I can't give that up. I've never had it now. I've got it and I'm not going to throw it away. I'm not gonNA treat it lightly and casually. I love this man. He's treating me in a way that makes me feel whole makes me feel like a person that I'm wanted and needed and cherished in that community. They became my family all of them. So coming out you would have lost the show. You also would have lost. Your family would have been everything. It would have been a terrible loss. I had pulled in so tight with my stepfather. Beat me up. I said you know their relatives and I can't trust them. I began to allow myself to be feeling to be hillman when Mr Rogers asked you to stay in the closet. If he wanted to be on the show he also suggested that you get married. Would you have gotten married to your ex wife? Had he not suggested yes because he wasn't the only one I think who was advising me. She was my best friend so we hung up all the time all the time. An hour on the telephone was nothing for us and I didn't feel at that time that I was courting her as a lover rather than just simply expressing the this is my friend. I prefer her overall. You guys and you did have a few gay friends who knew you were gay. What was their reaction to you getting married. Oh they were surprised this what. What are you getting married for and I said well. That's my destiny. I think that's my life. I do have a lot of affection for her. And maybe that'll turn into erotic attraction it never did and when I was making love to her I was thinking about my boyfriend or somebody and so it became apparent to me that I had made a serious mistake because she was a very very nice person and she was deserving of a better relationship. And that's what I basically said to her. You know I can't give you can't be the husband that you need a want. I just can't yeah. I felt like a failure I had tried to do something and I was really down in the in the mouth say. I was so depressed that I had tried something big and I had bit off more than I could chew. Did Fred Rogers ever meet any of the menu had relationships with Oh later on he did and I have to tell you. He didn't have anything against gay people. I don't know how to share with you but I didn't have very many relationships with people. I've never lived with anyone except my former wife. I've always lived along not by choice. I think there were only two people that I had very quiet. Demure relationships with that lasted for fifteen years. Each were they quite because you felt that you couldn't come out of the closet fully. Yes in fact one of the sediment don't dress up tonight so they won't recognize you. You won't get any attention and just the two of us can go to this restaurant and this movie and be very quiet loving and cuddly sweet and when did you come out publicly. Maybe about ninety. When I started the Harlem Spiritual Ensemble. I felt very today I was I was holding a big bundle of life. I decided I'm coming out. I don't care who knows it. I'M NOT GONNA hide it. And so from then on people s not very many. I told him yes.

Hacking Your Leadership

Your words matter. Choose them wisely.

"Welcome to hacking your leadership. I'm Chris and this is talent Tuesday. This weekly segment dedicated dolphins talent related for this talent. Tuesday episode. I WanNa talk about the way we speak to each other a few days ago. I happened to catch a documentary about Mister Rogers. There's been a lot of new content about an recently to the Tom Hanks movie on his life. That came out a few months ago. One of the things I learned that I found fascinating was a description and analysis of the way Mr Rogers spoke a longtime producer of the show was interviewed about how the crew had coined the term fresh referring to the language that Mr Rogers had supposedly admitted and it wasn't a new language specifically rather was very intentional way in which he spoke and the reasons behind it. The entire premise behind this way of speaking was the concept of anticipation meaning. Once he decided on the message he wanted to land and chose the words he wanted to use. He then played out the conversation in his mind and anticipated how a child would react to hearing those specific words. If the reaction was shaping up to be negative or if there was room for misinterpretation of the message he would rewrite the words and try again. This conversation within his own head would go over and over until he was confident he'd never inadvertently cause stress or anxiety in child and this meant literally every word on the show was carefully selected and scripted. There are no accidents and there was no advocating. A basic example would be how he never used the phrase your parents with groups of children because not all children know their parents. So instead he would say your favorite grownups. There are several examples of this process. Online where you can see the progress of these conversations and it's so smart if you have a minute after this episode Google Fetish steps and see what I'm talking about. I bring this up because I believe that when it comes to leadership our words matter to our message matters and I don't think enough leaders really consider this when communicating way back in September of two thousand seventeen. The eleventh hacking leadership was about the concept of intent versus impact and the importance of each. Lots of people argue that one is more important than the other and will. Each situation is unique. It's pretty clear that the people who consider both intent and impact are the people with the best interpersonal relationships. But something tends to happen when it comes to these discussions. Even our eleventh episode is guilty of it. The trade off between intent and impact is typically discussed in the context of potentially offending someone or giving them the wrong impression of your character where it typically isn't discussed is in the context of landing a message with your team in a compelling way away that means they both understand the message and are bought into it. A famous allegory reads give me six hours to cut down a tree and spend the first four sharpening my axe. It has real world implications on the prep-work required to get literally anything done right. No one wants to do the boring tedious work. That comes before they do the thing. Whatever that thing is no one wants to sharpen the x. Before cutting down the tree they just WanNa start chopping away. No one wants to stretch before working out they just WanNa start picking up weights. No one wants to check all the fluids in the tire pressure in their car. Before taking a road trip they just want to play on the music and drive many leads playbook or set of instruction when it comes to rolling out new strategy. They're told what the strategy is. What success looks like what the expected behaviors are and how to validate those behaviors and armed with this high level information? They scheduled time to disseminate everything to their people. But what many of them failed to do is spend time purposely crafting their words in a way that is most likely to land the strategy with their team. While eliminating room for misinterpretation in essence they failed. It'd be fresh about it if you're leader of people the next time you scheduled time with an employee or group of employees. Take the time to write out what you plan on saying and then practice it. I with yourself then someone else. Put yourself in the shoes of your employees. Think about how your words are going to be interpreted or potentially misinterpreted consider with you. Some confident not just confident in the fact that you know the information but confident your ability to demonstrate belief in the strategy. Lastly make sure your language doesn't inadvertently exclude anyone from the strategy over time. You'll find you get better at this process of preparation and eventually you'll be able to do it in your own head. In fact on some level you probably already do thanks for listening and have a great

Kid-Friendly TV Show Recommendations

"I think it's important to clarify. We're doing these recommendations are for very little kids and everything that we are talking about all of the recommendations on this episode our TV and I think there are parents of very young children and people who give advice to parents have very young children who tend to obsess over screen time and how much screen time a toddler should have look. These are unusual times and the first thing that I want to say before I even start doling out recommendations is just to remember that you're doing the best you can. You're doing fine if you need to put your toddler in front of a TV or a tablet and that is what needs to happen for you to stay sane for you to get your work done then so be it. Your kid is going to be fine. Your kid has you. That's what's important wanted to get that out there. I will also go so far. As to say as a person who obsessed about this didn't obsess about it goes back and forth the important part of the best you can is the you can part so if you are stuck on the fact well. The best is only two hours. It's the best that you can do. Given your circumstances your doing great exactly so. My first recommendation is something that my parents put in front of me. When I was very small child back in the seventies which has been fairly recently rebooted for new generations the electric company. The Electric Company is a educational children's program in the seventies it featured such wonderful luminaries as Rita Moreno. It has an extraordinarily charming kids show. That is really focused on education. But does it in such a warm and inviting and pleasant way so the original seventies electric company you can stream it via Amazon? It does cost money. You can find pretty lengthy excerpts of it on Youtube floating around and you know a lot of us who grew up in the seventies. We'll have you know like individual favorite moments from the electric company. I just remember that that was something that my parents really love to have on and around because though it was geared very very much too little kids and they say online. They say that it's geared toward five to nine but I think you can really go younger than that. My parents didn't go nuts watching it now. They recently rebooted the electric company from two thousand nine to twenty eleven. Those three seasons you can stream for free at PBS DOT ORG and As an incentive for parents who listen to this show and have not checked out the rebooted electric company one of the CAST members is William Jackson Harper. Who Played Chidi on the good place incentive to watch the new electric company Occasional guest spots and occasional music composition from one Lin. Manuel Miranda. I'LL AL. Obviously we could go back and forth. Comparing the quality of the two there is no way to compare something. You were nostalgic for as a child with something that is trying to duplicate that magic but that is a marvelous piece of educational programming. That is still entertaining. And that is right up there with stuff like Mister Rogers neighborhood and sesame street and all sorts of wonderful stuff that you can find on PBS kids. Electric Company is just a gorgeous piece of that puzzle. And I don't think it gets as much recognition as it should get especially compared to some of those other classic pieces of programming love it. Excellent Pack Loved Electric Company Berry. What is your first recommendation? We in our family when my oldest was younger and I was pregnant with my second son. It was really imperative for me to be sitting down lying down pretending that I didn't have a child for like two or three hours a day but I also had already watched so much Daniel Tiger which is wonderful and other. Pbs Kids thing. That probably taught me a lot about parenting but I wanted something that I also really liked from the creators of Wallace and GROMIT. Shaun the sheep which I have so many I mean I literally have photographs of both my husband and my then three year old watching. Shaun the sheep and both laughing at exactly the same amount because it is genuinely funny. It is the first thing that I think our family all liked the same amount where we really all were engaged in it in the same way. I you know you're not pretending to love you know Mom Tiger or whatever you're not pretending to be like Mom Tiger. I'm really actually mom. Tigers really haunted me over the years but I will say that Shaun. The sheep is both adorable in terms of its slapsticky laps. But it also looks gorgeous. So if you're not familiar with Wallace and gromit they created these these beautiful claymation sort of handmade aesthetic from our animations and Wallace and gromit. I also highly recommend but it's more of a sophisticated storyline. What's Great About Shaun? The sheep is that they are sort of snack. -able basically it is a brilliant sheep named Sean and the adventures of him and his farmer and his friends and it is genuinely funny. They're all of these little references. That are incredibly sophisticated without going over the head of your little ones. There's a kind of buster Keaton ask quality to it and I can watch them all the time. I really truly do not get sick of Shaun the sheep and my kids who are now as we said six nine still really love them. It's about that and maybe the British bake off are the only things that the entire family can agree on. If you've missed out on it please go back and watch it and you may find yourself watching it even without your children and where we find it. You can find it in a myriad of places. It is on Amazon prime. It is on Netflix. The Shaun the sheep extended universe of both movies and also the Wallace and gromit from the same animation studio are in many streaming places so if you just search Shaun the sheep you will find a gorgeous claymation that will make you. Giggle is a great pick and man. My kids now are nine thousand nine hundred sixteen and at no point in their lives. Has there been more than like a small handful of things that everyone in the family can enjoy at the same level at the exact same time so when you find one of those the love that you experience as a parent for that piece of entertainment is intense. I feel you on this one in a big way. Very very nice excellent. Pick Berry Hartman Steven. You'RE GONNA give us your second pick and This is not surprise. Me Buddy well. This one is specific to one of my kids particularly my older kid my son. Jona when he was little he obsessed over a cartoon that I watched as a kid called the wacky races and the wacky races were a very short lived. Hanna barbera cartoon aired in late. Nineteen sixty eight and a little bit in early sixty nine and then has kind of lived on in reruns. There's a DVD set that has like the complete collection of the wacky races. Hanna barbera cartoons are pretty primitive. You're talking about children's TV in the late sixties. You have some kind of squeaky gender stuff. There's like one female racer penelope pitstop. Who's like more concerned with her makeup than with racing? It has that name is amazing. Insert pitstop into my middle name. Very pitstop hardiman stuff hardiman The thing is though there's something about the way. This particular cartoon was structured where each episode of the show all of these goofy characters. They were the same characters. The plot couldn't be simpler. They're racing and at the end of each episode. One of the racers wins. There's a bad guy racer named Dick Dastardly. And his side kick Mutley. Who has that famous? Little wheezy laugh and my son who was obsessed with numbers kind of obsessed a certain amount of scorekeeping managed to latch into it. Not only as a piece of like fun cartoony entertainment but kind of latched onto it as like a statistician almost and really got obsessed with it. Even though there were only seventeen episodes he just watched them over and over and over again. Now the wacky races have existed in a couple of different forms. There's a wacky racist game for the we. The kids also played. This is also like electric company is one that got rebooted and it got rebooted a few years ago and once again if you're obsessed with the nineteen sixty eight version you're gonNA watch the version from twenty seventeen or two thousand eighteen and roll your eyes because it's not the exact entertainment that you grew up with but you look at the voice cast on this rebooted wacky races. It's Tom Kenny WHO's TV. Spongebob Jill Talley who's also voiced from. Spongebob she's also from Mister. Show like Tom. Kenny and Billy West. Who was stimpy. He was fry in Futurama. You have some really lovable voice. Cast working with this show. So lucky races isn't necessarily the top of very many people's list as far as like high quality children's programming but it was really important in my house and really had this nice kind of cross generational appeal where I got to feel nostalgia watching it and my kids hooked into it in ways that even I never did

And I'm sure up until a few weeks ago you weren't even imagining sewing face masks. So Jan how'd you get involved with making those masks for the Pandemic University Hospital here? In Cleveland called me up into said we need how we need. One hundred thousand mass. We need them quickly picked. What do we do so from their recommendations we developed a pattern? They approved the pattern to start off. We found fabric donated. We got cutters CICADA. It we got kits and then kind of an idea video because we had a teacher customers how to do this both online as well as in the stores so we did a video it went. Viral was started a million mass. Chia challenge because we wanted to have some fun with it too so people could help each other and post. How many Dick may we got? A million wasn't a big number and we've surpassed twenty million already. Wow that is remarkable. I just got chills hearing that that is so incredible and I understand also jammed at the hospital that you just mentioned that reached out to. You has a very special meaning for your family.

Does closing schools slow the spread of coronavirus? Past outbreaks provide clues

"Okay let's start this conversation by talking about the number one thing on most kids minds and definitely the number one thing on most parents minds school closings so corey. Why take the kids out of school? Well Emily we've seen in the last few days a kind of tipping point where we went from schools closing. You know here there. On a case by case basis to honestly and just really forty eight hours last week schools starting to close statewide and in most of these places when the decision was made. The didn't actually have that many infections. So you know it. It may have struck people in the moment. Like kind of weird right. Why doing now. Why close if there aren't infections in our media rain so why do that well so I spoke to this guy? Nicholas Kristof. He's at Yale and actually does a lot of really interesting work studying. How ideas spread among other things And they happen to spread kind of like diseases and so when corona virus hit the scene given the interest in this topic and given the fact that you know I'm a physician also specialized in public health and Epidemiology. It was not a stretch for me to become interested in this topic. And so Chris Dacas said. Look yes you you can close the school when there's a case and probably everyone would agree that that is a sensible thing to do and it helps so there's a study. He pointed me to of H One n One. A Flu. Epidemic was about what years ago? Yeah so the study is of Japan's reaction and showed that closing the schools when there's a case made a difference and found that reactive school closures reduce the rate of infections in the community by nearly thirty percent. That is no small number percents so that makes a lot of sense to me but like you said schools in the. Us are closing all over the place even when there aren't a lot of infections. Yeah and I think part of that is because the science around covert nineteen at least in how it spreads is still kind of unsettled. You know. We're not totally clear on how kids can spread it We don't know if say a child you know doesn't seem sick. But is still carrying the corona virus. How will that child impact the people that here she comes into contact with right right like their parents or caretakers exactly so honestly out of an abundance of caution school closures? They limit contact. They limit the possibility of kids getting sick. And of passing along Corona virus to the people they love and Corey. You have an example from history of a time when school cancellations really helped out during a viral outbreak. What was that yeah? This was an enormous flu epidemic back in nineteen eighteen and there's actually a really good research on how U. S. cities responded including What happened to the city's the closed their schools early versus those that didn't so Nicholas Kristof ca says when you look at this research. The results really speak for themselves. If you compare a you know a Saint Louis which closed the schools in advance and kept them closed for longer. Their death rate was three hundred. Fifty eight people per one hundred thousand population but Pittsburgh which waited 'til later didn't keep the schools closed as much. Their death rate was almost three times as high eight hundred. Seven people dying per one hundred thousand population. Wow that is a lot of people. Yeah it's a lot of people And what about? How will that affect families in vulnerable populations? How how will that affect them? I imagined that all this comes with a cost. Oh absolutely and I think this is something. A lot of people aren't thinking about that. You know while keeping schools open has a public health cost so does closing them especially for vulnerable low income families. You know a lot of people don't realize that twenty million kids in this country more than twenty million depend on schools for free breakfast free lunch in some cases free dinner Many of them get medical care at school not to mention the fact that there are lots of parents out there who are working. You know low wage hourly jobs. They can't take off work. They can't work from home. So what happens with these kids? I spoke with Sonia. Santa Liza's she's the CEO of Baltimore City Public Schools which are now closed. And she really summed it up. Well for me are a large number of our students the safest place for them to be actually in school so if you think about this from her point of view in. Baltimore you know. The State of Maryland has closed schools for two weeks. That's a long time for some kids to be home alone. to be coming to distribution centres to pick up what are called. Grab and go meals. But honestly emily really really complicatedness is the fact that CDC released new guidance at the end of last week that said these short-term closures like two to four weeks. They're not even long enough to actually slow the spread of this disease. They might need to go much longer and I know there are a lot of school leaders around the country who are looking at guidance and scratching their heads. Like how much longer we talking about here? Well I mean the governor of Ohio Mike DeWine said on CNN. The Sunday you know. He's closed schools there for three weeks but he said it's perfectly imaginable that this is going to go on a lot longer and it would not surprise me at all if schools did not open again this year. Wow Mollica I want to bring you in on this. Because you've been looking at the ways this can really affect families. Yeah if schools are closed it can definitely put a lot of pressure on families I spoke to Joy Osowski. She's a clinical and developmental psychologist at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. And here's what she said. One of the issues. Is You know a lot of parents need to work. And they cannot work remotely and even if they can work remotely. There are a lot of different kinds of things that need to be done for children. If they're not in school yet puts also much more pressure on parents because there isn't the routine of school so there are more meals at home. There's more care for children needed during the day and so they really have to establish what we would call a new normal anew routine and that way so how can parents create that routine and deal with that well You know she had a lot of different ideas but the one that struck me was that Older children can take some responsibility. I myself am the oldest of five siblings and I helped with my siblings growing up. She says that they could basically watch younger kids and help around the house doing chores and that kind of thing And she says it actually is helpful for the older children and can give them a sense of responsibility a sense that they're like actually contributing to the family in a time of crisis And I asked a soft ski weather. Older kids really do step up to the plate and she says that actually she's found after disasters like Hurricane Katrina for example. Older kids have been really helpful. They're helping younger kids out with schoolwork So parents can lean on them. This older kids do your part of the job description. When you're born you got a job description and it's look after sampling. Yeah and what about talking about the virus itself because I know a lot of families are really scared and there's a lot of anxiety around it and maybe they're not sure what to say? I mean a softy said is that parents need to be informed check the CDC website listen to NPR. And there's really really good news for families on the one end. Kids don't really seem to get very sick and emily. I JUST WANNA add a couple of things to from the episode. I just recorded with my colleague on your comments on parenting and current virus over life kit. When you're talking with kids make sure you're not making promises you can't keep so. Don't tell them. Oh no you won't get it because you don't know that and I always liked to channel Mister Rogers whenever I can which is look for the helpers trust in the helpers know that the helpers are out there our country is full of doctors and experts and professionals who are there to help take care of us when we need them and that will be a comfort to kids.

Helping A Child Whose Parents Are Struggling With Addiction

"Around twenty children's sit around sickle inside the main Camp Lodge. Almost I only have a parent. WHO's addicted to opioids? The lights are dim. It's one of those moments you know is going to be intense and you should brace yourself even before it happens. Happens the eight to twelve year olds. Read the letters to addiction dear diction why do adults like you. When I'm older I will be kill? Kill you make me not like bog. Edad ed it's sad. You make my dairy goat prison. I hate you their addiction. You are immersed my worst enemy. You took my dad for me. My stepdad my aunt and bound to be my uncle so I just have to ask you a question could you please just go to hell. Signed Hyundai very sad kid. I hate you so I wish you wasn't. Will you kids so bad. I hate you go to to help. This is my issue. Mommy the pain. These children feel L.. Is almost too much to bear and millions of families are touched by addiction. But remember that episode of Mister Rogers neighborhood where he tells children to look for the to help us. Well this episode of Life Kit is about how you can be that help because not everyone is lucky enough to go to a camp like this windy. Berkshire Director of campus and Dayton Ohio. Says kids shouldn't bear this pain alone and the most important thing is that you know. Oh that you're gonNA love most important thing to me. Is that your team. And you're no and you're heard after reading. Each child goes outside and throws their letter into a glowing firepit. They watched the letter to Addiction Bourne. Berkshire on other mentors hug them. And say I love you and you're so brave one little ten year old with big Blue Eyes as the last one in line chilly high. Listen IT S my mom. He missed him sweetheart in. I'm sorry mom here. I'm sorry what can you do if you'll see the teacher a neighbor churchgoer coach and you suspect something might be going on. Maybe or thinking yes. I'd love to be that person but I don't know much about addiction. Mary Beth Collins with the National Association for Children of Addiction says it doesn't matter we're not expecting adults to have to go and do a crash course you don't have to go And read a book all about addiction. You don't need to be able to speak clinically about substance use disorder all that you really need to know how to do is to be carrying to be loving and to be able to connect with kids and engage with them. mm-hmm that's as simple as it is. Okay but what if you want even sure there's really addiction family or maybe you don't want to overstep again. Mary Beth Collins says don't worry about it I invite this people to not get bogged down with that level of responsibility. You don't have to Komo for sure it's bad enough before you intervene. I'm covey the Cardoza and before I began reporting on addiction I used to think it mant mant parents strung out on the floor or they've disappeared for days or severe abuse going on but experts like Collins say that's actually not not true. Most of the time addiction takes place in families. That seem like they're functioning pretty well so you'll see them going to work or in Church walking the dog doc. She says the far greater likelihood of neglect or emotional abuse lake constant criticism or unrealistic expectations. Having said that a child safety of courses the most important so if you see signs of physical or sexual abuse definitely call the authorities. All of these children have experienced traumas sometimes abuse and neglect a growing number are in foster care. Many have apparent incarcerated dead or not in their lives. Alone is a national nonprofit that runs these camps in thirteen states many areas hardest hit by the the OPIOID crisis. The children meet at least twelve times a year so I think of it is an opportunity. That's Claudia Black an expert in the field of addiction. She helped start these camps years ago. Yes safe place for very young children to be where they can speak their truth where they can be honest about what it is. That's going on in their family. She says there's a lot of secrets and Cheam. Many kids don't even know what the word addiction means. They just know that parent is different. One eleven year old whose mother has been in Rehab. Several Times says this is how she explained it. If you really want to have a cupcake every single day in constantly constantly. And if you didn't have it you'd feel really schick. Black says that might not be the best analogy because well children love cupcakes. Rather she says she tells young children. It's like an illness or a disease with those who are older. She's a little more graphic. Something literally has their arms their hands wrapped apt around your parents neck. And that there's a choke hold and that your parents hands are tied behind them. They don't have the ability to reach up and pull pull whatever it is this got them around that neck and that so severely choking them in. I think that what we want people to a really grasp is that it isn't willpower. And there isn't a choice at this point without they're getting some kind of help. Okay so now. Let's get down to some practical tips Bryan Moss overseas all camps at Luna. He says these children are at higher risk for so using earlier and for entering the juvenile justice system will never be able to change. What's happened to them but what we can do is boost the protective factors and and lessen the likelihood of long term consequences? What are some of these protective factors that brings us to take away number? One being a caring consistent doubt in a child's life a help. Oh because Claudia Black says often. That's exactly what these children don't have a sense of mastery or feeling of success. At least one area of your life is really helpful to children and so the role that somebody could play play is how can I help develop that with child. Maybe that's with Helping this twelve year old boy work on a car with me and I'm the neighbor and and I teach him some mechanical skills and he develops a sense of mastering sense of pride around that. Or maybe it's win. This little girl comes to my house and plays with my kids. I get she and my kids involved in an art project and really try and further her talent because I see some natural talent in the art things you can do. I really really simple bake a cake. What you game going to hike kick around a ball ask about school collins says it's not about the activity it's about showing you care consistently those loving moments are what will build that trust in these children? And it's through through that trust through that consistent nature that they will start to trust you more when Michael was nine. He got into trouble unlocked for privacy reasons. We're only using his middle name. He was angry because his dad never spent any time with him. He was always dealing with Michael's brother Who is struggling with addiction? He would rarely come because he was with my brother or he was working. It was either one of the two. Michael didn't tell anyone how he felt. I hope but he was angry. I would slam the door as will as sometimes I hit my head on the wall and then walking out of class and and just not being able to control how I felt at that time and then one day miss missy accounts lettuce school started talking to him in the hallway just stuff like how a school today and what do you enjoy doing sometimes complimenting him Michael started going to her office to chat every day for two years she enrolled him in a Lunar Kemp. Michael says he always appreciated that. She didn't ask questions about his family. All pry. It's good to wait because you don't WanNa make a kid feel uncomfortable with answering the question themselves being that the kid. It doesn't even know what's going on in their life they just know it's an addiction and they just wanted to stop

"Is to protect them or don't talk about difficult things around young children and Mister Rogers just never bought that he would talk about divorce she would talk about death but in ways that were not on nerve being they were they were actually sued and they actually made these human realities accessible to children in a way that I think we're still shy about doing I you know I'm a parent I I I would never have that I I wouldn't have usually had the confidence or build even pull believed that it was the right thing to do to sort of like engage young young children and very difficult topics but Mister Rogers dead because sort of you know I'm almost finished up with his own kind of psychoanalytic theory you know he believes that well actually children our experience these things and if you don't talk to them what experiences anxiety and sadness and yet they're not invited to explore it or talk about it and so he brought these things right into the public here amazing absolutely this everyday things too of a free of the dark or your friend moves away all those things that we feel and as kids it's kind of like well you'll get over it and instead Mister Rogers just laid it bear and let's talk about it when it's like right I want to go back to what you were saying earlier about the plaque on the wall and the whole ethos is that a part of Rollins today you know is that something that your students kind of not think about and and maybe Mister Rogers was just sort of a you know sort of the beginning of of thinking about this kind of things that Rollins or has that always been the credo it's really always been the credo it's our it's really always been part of the Rollins college you so and I would say that it's actually become a more transparent and more self evident since Mister Rogers we describe our mission as providing an education for global citizenship and responsible leadership and we really do have every student try to understand that if you're getting an education at Rollins college you have a privilege that that few of your global players have which is not to say that our students are privileged you know eighty five percent of our students are in financial aid twenty percent over twenty percent are eligible for federal Pell grants which go to the lowest socioeconomic stratum of our economy so it's not the fact that our students are economically privileged is the very fact that by having access to a college education of the kind of quality of Rollins that you are in a privileged position and you have a responsibility to use that privilege to improve the situation of others who don't and that is carried through got that inspired Mister Rogers transpires us today at Rollins sort row and you have a very robust program of civic engagement where we have our students put their round education to work in the world to service even while their students but also helping them I imagine what they're going to do with the overall detail cation when they graduate it is up service a curiosity to any of the students because they're so young do they mention Mister Rogers are they curious about it I know I've gone on Rollins campus and asked Hey where did Mister Rogers thing out so to the students themselves kind of acknowledge that well we have but we we we lift them up and celebrate them you know is in some ways lightheartedly but also sort of as a as a moral touchstone dole would in my you know when I speak a campus events or if something happens on campus you know I mean sometimes it will say you know what would Mister Rogers think about this and and does some work extent kind of a moral hero in a way that he's he's larger than life and so missed I I think the students I'll tell you I'm not so sure that they're curious about him now I mean they're eighteen twenty two year olds and and now they're really of an age where Mister Rogers was not part of their childhood but I'll tell you what they resonate with they they resonate with us this idea of an ethics of kindness because I think especially students of this moment of this era this political culture see so much meanness and so much nastiness as part of public discourse that I think that they find both inspiration and comfort and sang okay but Rollins does are not our norms that's not the way we talk that's not the way we treat our fellow students are fellow humanity that's not what we can do all that may take some moral courage in that in a way that I think is is very align with our mission well let's go ahead and let people know that there will soon be a Mister Rogers statue on a single user there on the Rollins campus so tell us about the artist you commissioned at what the plans are for the sculpture well it's it's very exciting that this was not my idea of this wasn't anybody the currently on campus I get idea this was the inspiration of a of a trustee of the college who was traveling in Europe and came upon some very prominent sculptures there and and and came had an opportunity to meet the sculptor who's a very prominent sculptor blonde public public scalp sculptor and lives in France but he's actually from Great Britain and he engaged and then that was spawned this idea and so really this trustee Alan keen and gathered some of Winter Park residents in and and several other Rollins alumni and say let's commissioned a sculpture of Mister Rogers for campus and truly been through his initiative that happened and is happening the scope is name is Paul day DA why and he recently was on campus for a week just to soak up the war and the feeling of campus and the here Mister Rogers stories and we have a wonderful child development center that is a sort of a lab school for art our students were starting child psychology and and there are about forty children who go there and so called they spent time at this lab school and he talk to faculty and staff Mister Rogers and got the whole vibe of that and now he's developing a prototype a proposal for a sculpture of Mister Rogers but he's already let us know that he doesn't think it be appropriate just to make a kind of iconic sculpture of Mister Rogers the man he wants to set Mister Rogers in a context of children so I I believe he'll be maybe sitting down or on his knees are sitting on the floor maybe even with children around him they'll probably have a topic will be references to Mister Rogers neighborhood sold almost be more of a of a larger than life size bronze scene if you will of Mister Rogers in this neighborhood that's what we hear it so it's a work in progress that will probably be done in about fourteen months and and I look forward to it I look forward to having it be a point of reference for us on on the campus of Rollins college but also for any of the thousands and thousands of visitors to Rollins college that we get every year speaking of those visitors the visitors to Rollins I'm sure you know like to look around see all the iconic areas and everything so for someone visiting what are some places they would wanna visit particularly because it has some meaning connected with Fred Rogers what we actually set up an easy little Mister Rogers walking tour of campus and only has four spots but it it takes you by the music department where his portrait is harm and of course it takes you by the placket placard for that says like this for service and then it takes you to our archives where we actually have a boat a pair of Mister Rogers sneakers that he wore on the show and are very old and tattered and quite charming and one of his iconic sweaters that was not for him by his mother that he that he wore on the shelves so we have a lot of Mister Rogers archives the better funded business so people can go ahead and take that tour and see those those different items and what are some what are some things about the campus that are more modern day that you would like people to know about the campus well I think that the important thing about Welsh college is is our commitment to a certain kind of learning and it's it's it's relational learning and learning that happens in the context of human relationships which is why you understand why we celebrate Mister Rogers so much we do not believe the best kind of learning happens online we don't believe that you guys kind of learning happens in large lecture halls with a hundred or five hundred students we think so we are a certain size and scale on purpose we have thirty five hundred students and our aspiration is not to grow because we're committed to this kind of of of of putting IT this kind of learning where a professor six in a classroom with twelve to twenty students and each one of those students is sort of accountable on a day to day basis to come prepared to engage in the learning of the day and and and that's it that's important thing to understand about Ross colleges that were out were a residential liberal arts college on purpose but we have the good grace to be situated in Winter Park which is charming and right in the middle of this dynamic global city of Orlando and central Florida with all of its diversity in international influences it's an ideal place for a college in that way but what we do is we we retain a certain scale on a certain commitment to quality and academic rigor that we accept as a part thank you to talk about your music program since that is what Fred Rogers was there to study what is that like what does your music program like well it it builds off of what I was just talking about which is our situation because here we have a small but very very high quality music program but because we're in central Florida both our faculty and therefore our students have access to performance opportunities that you would at anywhere else we also have associated with with Rollins college one of the oldest box festivals in the country under the direction of Johnson player who's also the chair of our music department and so this is a classical music sort of Bach oriented choir and and orchestra but in the choir and orchestra are also many many many of our students who are not only learning music at rounds but they're singing professionally in the box best of all in addition of course there is gives me and there's a lot of music opportunities for Disney and John Sinclair is also one of the directors at Disney and so for example now coming up in the season our students will be performing the holiday concert for several nights in a row at a customer and those kind of opportunities to be able to perform publicly aren't typically found in a small college and as a consequence many of our music students either go into further music education or become professional performers and no small number of them there's there's two now that are part of the liberty singers outages me so I think that I I I this is the third college that I've served the second as president and they and music is such an important part of collegiate life but I've never heard the quality of music come out of our faculty and staff like I exactly students and staff like I like I do it wrong so it's a good it's a great music program I'll tell you what as we draw to a close here I want to let people know again about the sculpture and I guess we can see it in about a year is that right yes yes indeed go ahead I I guess I would say in court I I guess but I would say in closing is you know the reason I'm proud to have Mister Rogers associated with Rollins college is because I do see him as representing a kind of social vision and a kind of ethic of of respect for it each individual that our society desperately needs right now and I actually think that there's something out I'm a philosopher by training and there's something that I can imagine writing in the future would be a short piece on the ethics of Mister Rogers because he really did come Adams work with principal and sciri he was really trying to convey something and it's and and it's a message about the dignity of the human individual whether it's a child or an adult and that each human being is worthy of respect and should be treated in all interactions with respect and that that is a message that I think our society could could well used to here today definitely well thanks for joining us today grant Cornwell is president of Rollins college I best peril.

"The Johnny Carson would kind of go both ways in a sort of mock the left mocked the right exit wasn't vicious it wasn't life like Bob Hope every president he'd tell jokes about him but they were all none of them were mean spirited so I don't know it some point the money people are going to say we don't need another political feminist movie because they keep bombing we don't need another movie that talks about homeless six because they keep bombing at some point the money people are gonna stop making these movies don't you think you would think but I've written about this endlessly and when it when I read the press the variety the Hollywood reporter when they woke movie fails they don't mention that it'll have like a five rooms why Charlie's angels flop they will not mention that it was full of lectures it was full of sprite feminist empowerment and that could drain the entertainment value they will not mention it and I guarantee the studio doesn't care or is not I'm not aware of it do you know the funniest thing I have heard about the new Charlie's angels movie came from a friend of mine who's a feminist who said it was too feminist she's like it was unbelievably feminist the first line of the movie is a is a lecture the first line there it Kristen Stewart a she's a good actress was which is to say you know I think one can do anything he talks like that I'm sorry yeah they do in the movies like that it out I mean it's so what it what do you like so far what is your what is your I know you're beginning to formulate your favorites for Oscars you said you haven't seen all the all the movies that are going to be in contention but what are some of your favorites right now I mean are you is walking Phoenix going to pull this off for the joker I love him he is one of my I think he's an incredible actor in the this radical inter actor to win the joker best and Best Actor well I think it might in the Supporting Actor with the he liked her thank you I think that was wording here hang on one second your point is accurate I love the joker I love Joaquin Phoenix in it a judge a rabbit was outstanding what is that movie what is the what is that about it's about a little German boy whose imaginary friend is it off after it's a very bleak satire it's very funny Sam Rockwell is insanely good in it he's a good year ha heck of a year yeah he's one of the best out there he is absolutely I loved beautiful day in the neighborhood to Tom Hanks movie that Mister Rogers its mission waves no safe spaces was excellent they haven't seen that movie please is it ever going to come out because I couldn't go see it the night that they played it here it is and that's the Dennis Prager Adam corolla film I don't really want to see it could it was literally two days here well you know if I don't know if it's still playing here I know it was in a couple different theaters sort of in the suburbs of Denver I know it's opening wider this weekend so I don't know why they don't know what maybe I'll see this see it then because I am a big fan of both of them I have a question yeah traditionally we've had all the Hollywood movies and foreign films nominated for Oscars it seems like most of the best adult films coming out are now network films like Amazon and and and companies like that when will will we ever reaches a time where we'll have Oscars include some of the cells which are better than some of the Hollywood nominees are you going to keep seeing people game the system like the Irishman they were in theaters for a week then there are a Netflix it's a tricky question and I think you just nail that with the it's we're in it shift right now a cultural shift and I think the Oscar voters will reject a Netflix movie that is not in theaters in any capacity right with Irishman just went straight to Netflix I think it has like a this pertained to it you can't the academy of arts and sciences it doesn't say Hollywood in it well but then you could also say they've been movies on HBO for years very good exactly out your level of future late show time yeah but they've never been nominated for Oscars so this the the streaming landscape is different you can certainly make the point if you wanted to that some of those films are better than some of the winning films for Oscar I agree a question interesting interview with deniro and Scorsese and the cashier Pacino Pacino and Martin Scorsese was very vocal about the the fact that no studios would touch the Irishman it was about money would not touch it and he said it you know Netflix jumped in with both feet and it was a delight to work with them I mean he was he was it you said about working with Netflix and in my mind I think it was his way of signaling if you want to get a fine arts still made this is where you go and I think that could be a game changer of Netflix but you know Netflix is also over extending itself around the world right now so they could very well end up as far as movie making and television show making in the same position that some of the big studios are in you know for every out how many how many flops that we don't talk about are they making versus the ones that we do like the Irishman yeah the financials of Netflix I don't get it they're just opening Monday th I by the way every other day at my house I get new stuff from Netflix books and gifts and like disaster sees sure the same critics these things and they can this is going to cost a fortune but with the also sent me the desks the screeners and thinking just send me a cold you'll have Netflix watch it here I already got Netflix on this gonna watch it I don't need to disconnect the mailing costs I mean just yeah be flush with cash but I agree what I've heard from many many artists is that they say Netflix says do your thing yeah when they're off it's all you you're the artist with the studio will write the checks you make the movies and that's technically the best way to go about it but once the money starts getting a little bit tight right then you might get the notes from Netflix officials you look at the stars and Cinemax and epics they are doing some great work yeah adult to work and a lot of the theatrical Hollywood movies are kidding movies there either you know horror movies or their super hero movies you know that Hollywood is re regressed to their childhood no with it is they're afraid to take a risk they've earlier about making a movie that could possibly offend someone or I you know I think that they have they have been that's why you had twelve ugh Andy hardy movies in Hollywood yeah no new thing there always have been afraid to try something new here's a place Scorsese famously said that Marvel movies were not cinema verite once the hours in arguments but the point that I would see is that this serious story telling that he loves that he created he correct characters now yeah on the small screen exactly in emacs its streaming it's H. you know so those stories are still being made AS we still want to consume them but if we could leave the house we want a roller coaster ride the irony is irony is this in the fifties it used to be you started on television like James Garner in maverick yeah and then you were a big star on TV and you made theatrical Giles you yeah you graduate and you never went back either no now and now the opposite is the case it out all this serious important films are being made on TV I agree with apple TV they got all the actresses coming there like Reese Witherspoon is our major stars out clamoring to begin a streaming channel is unproven yeah I I think it's cool I I feel like we're in a good area of creative destruction right now and I don't think it's a bad thing it will be interesting to see how some of the smaller players because distribution is change so much and you combine that with the fact that you have a seventy five inch screen at home hello yeah which also makes those TV movies theatrical movies and nobody sitting behind me kicking my seat and nobody is making noise and nobody's on their cell phone in my house with my seventy five and I don't think the theaters have any more aces up the hole in the whole because remember they've they've introduced cinemascope to defeat television yes in the early fifties because you couldn't get wide screen on your TV I don't think there's anything left to do for theaters to make people go out and spend fifteen Bucks for it for a ticket I don't disagree but the communal experience is still a replaceable if you go see a comedy or horror sharing your right everyone's scared everyone's laughing it's hard to match that of home that's true that's Christian toto his website Hollywood in toto is fantastic he also appears on a regular basis with our friend Michael brown over in six thirty K. how what when you on his show on Fridays at three o'clock Fridays at three with Michael so you can hear me over there or just on occasion will pop in when the Oscar nominations are I you know I might make this one of these years where I try to actually see some of the Oscar movies but Chris falsely too easily now I don't know if I'm just getting older if I'm too comfortable in my home to make it all the way through a movie but I'm I'm gonna try the last time I did that that I saw all the Oscar movies was when the wrestler was nominee Mickey Rourke and that one wore me out I was like that was a lot of depressing movies in a row so we'll be back in a dark Oscar stuff and have a merry Christmas my friend thank.

Golden Globes 2020: Female directors snubbed yet again

"Me it's beginning to look a lot like awards season in the past week the Gotham independent film awards were handed out to the critics choice association released its nominations on Sunday the LA critics did their thing over the weekend as well and yesterday the nominations for the twenty twenty golden globes were announced in in the case of the latter there was a quite a bit of controversy the golden globes once again failed to nominate any female directors in film or TV honestly there were quite a few out there who are doing spectacular work Greta girl getting one ever given a online five live you wild the LA film critics and the critics circle offered a bit more in the way of diversity giving accolades the films including hustlers the farewell and Diane and among all three groups however married story parasite and the Irishman led the film category is joining us now to talk awards and what it all means is box culture writer and friend of the show Constance Grady because it's nice to see you thanks so much for having me so we'll talk about the the snobs in a minute but were there any surprises in the golden globe nominees for you I think the big surprise for a lot of people was joker getting nods not as for Joaquin perf walking Phoenix's performance which was expected but also getting nominated for Best Picture and Best Director especially since as you've already mentioned there were so many snobs in the directing category that was a movie that really became as big signifier in the culture wars when it came out honestly even before it came out there were some people who were saying that it was glamorizing the idea that a disenfranchised late and then turning to violence would be like this complete reasonable into laudable act and some people saying that it was the big greedy Christine's treatment that super hero movies deserved and then when it actually came out the critical consensus was that it was not really even interesting enough to justify that level of controversy so for it to make such a surprising sweep in a category that saw so many big films overlooked was really surprising I think for a lot of people do you think it it it seems to me that it really comes down to Joaquin Phoenix's performance I know that really maybe it was it was enough to sweep it into the best film category that performance really is undeniable and certainly you know a director does a lot of work to pull a performance out of an actor having said that I think there are a lot of other films in that that were in the conversation for Best Director Best Picture that didn't get pulled out that have really fantastic performances as well you know you could talk about it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood the Mister Rogers movie starring Tom Hanks Tom Hanks turns in a great performance and he was nominated as well but the director Merial Heller who did a lot of work with Hanks as well was not nominated so let's talk about that no women directors nominate you had hustlers affair well book smart little women when they see us what do you think was going on I mean this is speculation but you are culture writer yeah yeah I think one of the big things to remember about the golden globes is the end voting bloc the voting body for this award is super super weird the **** the Hollywood foreign press association is just ninety something people living in southern California extensively it's supposed to be a journalist for foreign publication of a lot of the members of the award body actually aren't and because it's a weird number in ninety people it's like not really enough to get a consensus pick on the and on the films of the year you know the academy in comparison has like eight thousand people in its body so you get like this weird sort of personal preferences can really tell things really strongly one way or the other so that's why it's kind of idiosyncratic yeah their picks tend to be very quirky and unusual compared to a lot of the other big awards shows and sometimes that means that they can recognize really really cool TV you know there was a time when the globe's had a reputation for being much better on TV than the end use words like the and needs would nominate modern family over and over and over again and that those route they're recognizing you know crazy ex girlfriend a Jane the virgin and other critically acclaimed show that never really got any any love but other times it means that the gloves will just completely shut out movies and TV shows that are really sort of in the middle of the conversation for no particular reason other than that didn't really connect with the voting body and kind of consistently it seems that the voting body does not connect with movie is directed by women the director honey boy tweeted good morning to everyone that's writing me about hash tag golden globes I feel you know this I was on the inside for the first time this year there are not they are not or people they do not represent us do not look for justice in the award system we are building a New

"Family to Ghana decades ago her story is on the world and it's coming up thirty minutes from now the world weekday afternoons at two this is fresh air I'm Terry gross let's get back to my interview with Mario Heller who directed the new movie a beautiful day in the neighborhood starring Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers and Matthew Rees as a journalist assigned to profile him for esquire magazine Heller also directed the films can you ever forgive me and the diary of a teenage girl when we left off Heller and just told the story of how she and her three year old son had watched an episode of Mister Rogers neighborhood that dealt with death which was an upsetting idea for her son who'd never heard about that before do you remember how you learned about tough I remember my grandmother's husband dying but I think I was older I think it was seven or eight when he died but I remember that being the first real person I knew who died and I and that my parents didn't let me go to the funeral and I remember feeling like it was really unfair he wanted to go I wanted to go I don't I I thought I wasn't like I felt and I think about sort of Mister Rogers and that way of like I I felt like a full person you know I felt like I was having as big of an experience as everybody else and why wasn't I allowed to go to the funeral and I think they were trying to protect me was upsetting for you to learn that such a thing existed and stuff yeah yeah I mean I yeah I was one of those kids who thought about death a lot and we had we had the big earthquake in the bay area needing on how old were you then ten mmhm but that really it scared me in like a deep dark way you know it really shook my sense of what could happen in the world it was just the first my my brother was trapped in a warehouse we couldn't get to him in the house of bread Jenna we didn't know if he was okay and you know friends of mine their parents were in San Francisco and the bay bridge collapsed and we didn't know if they were okay and that there are people who are part of our community who died and it it was just so chaotic it was just the end of the world it felt like the end of the world at the time it really did and it it definitely I had a high was it it's still something that has meant you know meant something in my bigger emotional life that I am still dealing with it there and you know I think back on myself as a kid and I'm like I and I see it in my kid I think that's why this experience of showing in that episode was so I felt for him so much because I I remember what it was to be the kid who was thinking about the kind of dark questions of life and while other people aren't but now you know I had this experience when I was preparing to make this movie before I went to Pittsburgh I went to a a talk at the Buddhist send center in Brooklyn and I think I had this idea in the little I really know about Buddhism or Buddha where I was thinking that somehow if you are very enlightened that you're very peaceful that year you're at peace you're sort of happy and this woman who's giving this talk said of the goal of Buddhism is not your piece fortune to never feel any pain the goal is to feel all the pain and that made me think about Fred at that time because all all of the things we were hearing in the research about Fred was that he went emphasized such a great degree with the people you came into contact with you would need a stranger on the street and they would pour their heart out to him about what they were going through and he worked almost hold it like a vessel like he she just became this great vessel for other people to for what they were experiencing into and and I think he felt at all he was he was present in the pain of the world and not denying it and he grew up with a lot of illness I mean he was a sick child was often isolated that's how we started doing voices like forces first puppets right he was his parents were so nervous that he was going to be kidnapped Adam chauffeured to school so that he was even more isolated from his friends yeah and I think he was in his own in his own head a lot in that way but I think he also was ferry he spent the rest of his life there for trying to be super connected to other people rather than being so separated from them I want to play one of Mister Rogers songs that you use in the film hi I particularly like this one it's it's it's one called what you do with the mad that you feel and it's also it's a song all about learning to control yourself and your emotions get out of hand and I think this is a song that most of us adults should learn by heart to so so this is the real Fred Rogers singing it here we go do you do with them and that you feel when you feel so by when the whole wide world seems so wrong and nothing you do seems Marian Wright what do you do check bags and some clay or around friends or a game of tag and see how it's great to be able to stop when you land the thing that's wrong and be able to do something else instead and thank this song I can stop when I want to can stop when I wear on the job Tom and what a good video like this note that the feeling there's some thing and I need help how much we can all right can be seven day out while I'm on and a ball and some and okay those Mister Rogers it do you play the songs for your son I do that when I play for my kids all the time that song sort of became like our thesis for the whole movie have this idea that so many of us don't actually have practical ways to cope with their feelings and you know it was as a song he quoted when he did that famous hearing in front of the Senate where he got money for PBS but also it was a song that we put in the movie specifically because it felt like it was telling the story that we were trying to head on with this movie which is about this grown man who really hasn't figured out his own coping ways he can't he hasn't figured out what to do with his own Matt and and what does that mean much what type of a man is he then let's take a short break here and then they'll be plenty more to talk about if you're just joining us my guess is Mario Heller she directed the new film a beautiful day in the neighborhood we'll be right back this is fresh AIR support for NPR comes from this station and from whole foods market offering colors and flavors of the season with seasonal

"Meaning connected with Fred Rogers what we actually set up an easy little Mister Rogers walking tour of campus and only has four spots but it it takes you by the music department where his portrait is harmed and of course it takes you by the placket placard for that says life is for service and then it takes you to our archives where we actually have a boat a pair of Mister Rogers sneakers that he wore on the show and are very old and tattered and quite charming and one of his iconic sweaters that was networking by it's mother that he that he wore on the shelves so we have a lot of Mister Rogers archives that are fun to visit so people can go ahead and take that tour and see those those different items and what are some there's some things about the campus that are more modern day that you would like people to note about the campus well I think that the important thing about Welsh college is is our commitment to a certain kind of learning and it's it's it's relational learning and learning that happens in the context of human relationships which is why you understand why we celebrate Mister Rogers so much we do not believe the best kind of learning happens online we don't believe that you guys kind of learning happens in large lecture halls with a hundred or five hundred students we think so we are a certain size and scale on purpose we have thirty five hundred students and our aspiration is not to grow because we're committed to this kind of of of of putting IT this kind of learning where a professor six in a classroom with twelve to twenty students and each one of those students is sort of accountable on a day to day basis to come prepared to engage in the learning of the day and and and that's the best important thing to understand about Ross colleges that were were a residential liberal arts college on purpose but we have the good grace to be situated in Winter Park which is charming and right in the middle of this dynamic global city of Orlando and central Florida with all of its diversity in international influences it's an ideal place for a college in that way but what we do is we we retain a certain scale on a certain commitment to quality and academic rigor that we accept as a part I'd like you to talk about your music program since that is what Fred Rogers was there to study what is that like what does your music program like well it it builds off of what I was just talking about which is our situation because here we have a small but very very high quality music program but because we're in central Florida both our faculty and therefore our students have access to performance opportunities that you would at anywhere else we also have associated with with Rollins college one of the oldest box festivals in the country under the direction of John Sinclair who's also the chair of our music department and so this is a classical music sort of Bach oriented choir and and orchestra but in the choir and orchestra are also many many many of our students who are not only learning music at rounds but they're singing professionally in the box best of all in addition of course there is gives me and there's a lot of music opportunities for Disney and John Sinclair is also one of the directors at Disney and so for example now coming up in the season our students will be performing the holiday concert for several nights in a row edit cut center and those kind of opportunities to be able to perform publicly are typically found in a small college and as a consequence many of our music students either go into further music education or become professional performers and no small number of them there there there's two now that are part of the liberty singers reaches me so I think that I I I this is the third college that I've served the second as president and they and music is such an important part of collegiate life but I've never heard the quality of music come out of our faculty and.

"This is Mister Rogers this if the frog could have I'm worried that he bring sway and these are just people talk and work you know how to add it you know this is like a production meeting that is going on and he still put that brand of of of thought to it I think the point to me what seemingly the performance element is only to succeed in a greater communication to the to the origins of which it is aimed Fred Rogers believed in the power of television right as a tool for change the tool for reaching people television hasn't really worked out that way well he didn't change television on as a technology art form but look what he created for a half hour extraordinarily wise smart things that made children understand the world a little bit better if you only get a half hour out of that you know one today I think you're still half hour ahead of the curve what about in the general culture a film like this do you think there is a craving a need for Fred Rogers so you think there's some like marketing is I think you know what we got what we have here is counter program you see what I'm saying like what we're gonna do is going to have the guy with the public yeah well that's good well no I think we can work if we run the program days like this thing there's I think credible symphony going on at all times and it's in the polls and sometimes the greatest potencies is found and I think if we do that for him a small number of people up for a brief moment so much so the best Mister Rogers neighborhood ended its television run on PBS in two thousand one Fred.
