"One NA member Here with Aisha and me today is daisy Rosario, she's an executive producer at stitcher with the show's celebrity book club with Chelsea Devante. It's in its first season right now. Hey, daisy. Hey, how's it going? It's going great. Great to have you. Also joining us is Monica Castillo. She's an arts and culture reporter with Colorado public radio. Welcome back Monica. Glad to be here. Glad to have you. King Richard is an unusual sports biopic in that it's not focused on Venus or Serena Williams so much as the overbearing man who drew up a 78 page plan for their success, Richard Williams basically raised his daughters from birth with the idea that they would grow up to be tennis champions, though he and his wife, brandy, played by ingenue Ellis, have children from other relationships, together the Williams trained Venus and Serena on abandoned tennis courts in their hometown of Compton, while also looking for coaching help from an overwhelmingly white tennis world. The movie follows the family through Venus and Serena Williams early days from their training as kids through Venus national breakthrough at a competitive tournament when she was 14. We see Venus played by Sinai Sydney, as she develops her killer instinct and we see Serena played by Demi singleton as she first begins to escape her sister's long shadow. But mostly we see Will Smith as Richard Williams, a stubborn flawed ambitious, hard charging father figure whose plans succeed wildly sometimes it would seem in spite of himself. The film was directed by Ronaldo Marcus green and written by Zach balin and it's both in theaters and streaming on HBO Max daisy. I'm going to start with you. What did you think of king Richard? I ended up really liking it, which I say in that tone because that's not what I was expecting when I sat down. In part for kind of everything that you have explained in the intro, you know, I'm a huge fan of the Williams sisters. They're definitely was a question in my mind of like, okay, why are we telling it this way? You know, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt, let's see. There are also details about Will Smith's performance that I kind of had to get used to, I guess, this is how I'll put it in the start, but I would say it's kind of a movie that once I settled into it, then I really enjoyed it. But the cast, you know, I know that this is like definitely Will Smith Oscar bait and I'm sure we'll talk a lot about that too, but the rest of the cast is so charming in particular, the girls who play not just Venus and Serena, but the rest of the Williams daughters. I mean, those parts of the movie just really made me emotional, you know? And so I really, really ended up enjoying it. And I also saw it with an audience that was into it, which was fun. This is probably the most raucous audience. I have been in a movie theater with since the pandemic. And so it was fun to be in a theater full of people clapping and ooing and awing and having serious emotional reaction to the story of this family..

"They get in their way or are kind of equally specific. And i just think the story so much more interesting when they're they're chasing those specific dreams than when they're chasing the the very bland and generalized romance. I also think it's very interesting. That riff in his boys none of them like the big thing that comes up with you know racist people fussing over immigrants is like the fear of of their jobs being taken that never comes up because ribbon is boys. Don't want jobs like they look down on slash are kind of horrified at tony for moving on from gang banging and taking a simple job they sing about how like taking small jobs would make them into slobs this. They don't want that for themselves at all. They don't feel like the puerto ricans are like muscling and on their ability to to find careers or make livings or even pursued their own version of the american dream. They just want to feel like they own their streets. And you know unequivocably own their streets and bully other kids as well as they used to be able to. The one of the big debates are maybe the biggest abate that has sort of swirled around in the heights is the color ism debates specifically the absence of darker skinned latin x characters in in the heights and the feeling that this very large and important part of that neighborhood is not reflected in this film that is about this neighborhood and then of course you know with west side story. We have controversy over the fact that that The Rita moreno is pretty much. The only is the only puerto rican in the in the cast. Actual puerto rico. There's a lot of brown face and a lot of things that we hit would be treated with true horror if it were bay but but but but is still pretty uncomfortable to watch now so I'm curious to. I was curious to see what everyone thought about the heights controversy because it has been really kicked up in a pretty big way at reading marino herself was involved in a way. That was Again uncomfortable for for everybody. In i interested in what we the controversy and also how it is kind kind of steered the discussion and the perception of the film itself. It's one of the things that wouldn't occur to me. And then i realized that the shortcoming of me as of yours with for my limited perspective. I think our friend.

"Let's take another call Helena Helena. I believe it is. It's online five calling in high, Helena. Thanks for calling all of it. Tell us what you thought about in the heights. Hi. This is how in height I thought the story was outstanding heart moving the actors, actresses. Dances were superb, however. Too much singing. And because of that, If you're not from the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, you will miss some of the words, you know? Mm hmm. Uh, that's that's my take on it, but so much really too much singing. Okay. Thank you. It was a musical. But okay, let's go to Akash Online Nine high Akasha. Thanks for calling all of it. I love that you are infuriated about something very New York. Yes. So I loved the musical. I thought it was just enough singing. But there was a part where there's a whole song about getting from Washington Heights to the concourse, and they made it seem so easy and it's super not you have to go like down and up or take a bus or a cab like it's not just three stops on the D Train. The D train doesn't stop And my That was my biggest takeaway from the talk with I I sort of love that and I have to tell you. A lot of your fellow New Yorkers are on board with you about that one. Thank you. So much for calling in Monica. I want to ask you about some of the choices that the filmmakers made. You know, I was talking somebody about and I said, you know, there's a lot of fantasy elements. There are fantasy elements in this film. There are animations. One time at one point, the wigs in the beauty salon come to life. How did you feel about the fantastical elements? Monica? Oh, I love that. But that's another, You know, sort of tool in the in John choose toolbox in order to kind of break it away from the stage play in the stage of the Broadway version altogether because you can't get those animation sequences in in real time. So we can do that with movies we can do. You know, um, Benny and Nina dancing on the side of a building as the sun is setting very romantically behind them, But we can't quite pull that off just yet. Broadway. I had a you know, One of my favorite Easter eggs in this is at 1.1 of the characters is on hold and you really realize the music. The music is he'll be back from Hamilton, the the King George song. It's a very funny little little side moment. There are a lot of little ones like that. I love when the percussion in the in the nail salon and the beauty salon was the woman's fingernails. Tapping. I thought that was like a really great audio moment. Did you have an Easter egg You loved Oh, goodness. I mean, as someone with long nails. I also really appreciated that scene. It's kind of hard. I love so many aspects of it. Actually, you know what? I wanted to give another shout out to Olga Melodies. She plays a well, claudia she has that amazing number paciente affair. Beautiful, bold sort of dream ballet sequence and a good portion of it takes place in the New York Transit Museum, and it takes us back to, you know, older. New York trains. As you know, she's singing about her journey coming with her mom to America. I mean, the very emotional number, but at the same time, you know, I've been on that platform. I have been through those trains. So for me that was like my little sort of like Easter egg took me back to that time, but Um, it's also you know, a moment and that character reminds me a lot of, you know, members of my family, you know who have made the move from Cuba to the United States, and you know you grow up hearing those stories. Um, so it was very emotional for me. My guest is Monica Castillo, Arts and Culture reporter for Colorado Public radio. We are all talking about in the heights or you are having an in the Heights Watch party. We are going to take a quick break and get to that controversy over Colorism. We've got several calls about that and also about some calls about thin privilege, which is kind of interesting. We'll take your calls, and we'll talk more with Monica about in the heights after a quick break. This is all of it..

"Are against you. But there's a chance right? Early reviews of the film were positive reviewers called it a blast of Sunshine. Joyful, perfect Summer movie. There are big dance sequences, gorgeous visuals and some pretty good sight gags. While it has a 96% approval rating on rotten tomatoes, and a quick Twitter search that reveals hardcore fans are watching the film two or three times in the heights has not been strong at the box office. There were some reviewers who called it superficial and sometimes contrary and reviewer Armand White from the National Review just roasted it, saying Miranda's cultural misappropriation is in the heights is the grotesque product of a mainstream culture that seeks Latino figure who is acceptable precisely because he is politically and artistically non threatening. So reviews are just informed opinions right? But there is one fact about the film. It has been noted The film's leads are mostly lighter skinned actors. Colorism in Hollywood is nothing new. But in this film by these filmmakers, Miranda and shoe Is it enough to derail the film's success as one of the hosts the podcast? Show your work, wrote. Having these conversations doesn't mean that in the height should be canceled in the height still has value. It can both be seen and interrogated. As imperfect as it is. There is so much to discuss, and we will get to all of it with you. Listeners are numbers 646435 70 to 80. We want to know what you thought of in the heights. Joining us now is Monica Castillo and Arts and Culture reporter for Colorado Public radio. And she has reported and written about in the heights. Monica. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. So when did you first become aware of the musical in the heights? So I like Broadway. But I never really had too much money to be able to go to a lot of Broadway shows while I was living in New York. So you know, I actually missed in the heights when I was on on the in Theatre the first time on Broadway, Unfortunately, And finally, you know, the soundtrack made its rounds. I would hear it here and there. But it wasn't until the movie was starting to get into production that I really like sat down and listen to it, and I really enjoyed it. When you thought about the film. What were your hopes for the film? I had really high hopes again, like I I do love like Hollywood musicals. And now you know, getting the chance to see all these different works, you know, in one way shape form or another. Um, I I I wanted it to be everything that they had promised that this was going to be. You know, the Latino or Latin next movie event of the year that this was, you know, going to be such a big forward for representation. You know, there's been a lot of conversation that this was going to be like our Black Panther. This was going to be our crazy rich Asians. And then not quite. We'll get to that in a minute. Let's talk about the film strengths. What do you think, are the its strength as a film? What stands out? Think there's a lot of great performances in the film. I absolutely adored the choreography. I think John Chu really has an eye for like design and staging. He's done a few of the step up Sequels. So he had knows a little bit about what it takes to, you know, make dancing seemed really energetic and exciting on screen. Um, I think there's some really great set pieces away that he kind of breaks it out of, you know, the sort of stagey kind of feel that some musicals adaptations may have he really does a great job of you know the and then take, for instance, the 96,000 Number, um, where you know, on the stage. It's performed one way and then in the movie, we get this beautiful, like pool sequence that is just kind of impossible to pull off on Broadway. And then here because the magic of the movies were able to have sort of, like Busby Berkeley, Esther Williams kind of style musical. Let's take a couple of calls. Anastasia is calling in from West Orange, New Jersey Online three Anastasia Thanks for calling all of it. Hi, Alison. Thank you so much for taking my call. And admittedly, I just got emotional with your screener talking about this. My husband and I. We both cried through the whole thing. Because, remember, um we have tremendous performing arts here in West Orange, and they put on in the height three years ago. And, you know, just leaving the auditorium. People saying this is nothing short of professional and so to see all this. You know, it was back and forth. Our kids who performs so well and I said this was the Rx for coming out of this. Untenable and stunning year. Um, we just We loved it, Um, particularly the performance that moved me. The most was probably Abuela. Um, the young lady who played her part. I can't remember her name. My daughter could probably come here. Um, with just So moving and just really I think it's what we need right now. Why? Why does it make you emotional Anastasia? You know the struggles. You know the immigrants, immigrants struggle. The idea of, you know, hopes and dreams that Mm. I I thought it was beautiful. How non obvious. You know, talking to his kids talking to his little girl on the beach, But he's right there in the heights and you know it. Just the whole full circle of it was, um So moving.

I'm Alison Stewart and I will meet you on the other side of the nails. Mm. Live from NPR news. I'm Lakshmi, saying the U. S. Supreme Court is siding with college athletes in a dispute with the way over rules limiting their education related compensation. The justices ruled efforts to limit compensation of students violate antitrust laws. NPR's Windsor Johnson reports the unanimous decision could set the stage for major changes in college sports. Under current rules, students cannot be paid and the scholarship money that schools can offer is capped at the cost of tuition and expenses. The case does not decide whether athletes can be paid salaries. Instead, it paves the way for students to receive laptops, graduate scholarships and other forms of non cash compensation. The N C double a defended its rules as necessary to preserve the amateur nature of college Sports Windsor Johnston reporting President Joe Biden expected to invite members of Congress to the White House for more infrastructure talks. NPR's Tamara Keith reports large differences remain. A bipartisan group of senators has been working on a compromise infrastructure proposal, but it's not clear how much support they found among their Senate colleagues. Separately, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, appearing on CBS this morning, said the president and his team need more details about what's in the proposal and how it will be financed an idea that's been floating around there. That certainly the president would not support is a gas tax, which would raise taxes on people making less than $400,000. A year. We're just not going to stand for that, And we're not going to accept that The White House and Progressive Democrats in Congress prefer paying for roads, bridges, broadband and more by increasing taxes on the wealthy, which Republicans have said is a No go Tamara Keith NPR NEWS.

"That is a great pick and a great band. I really really recommend going on a wolf. Alice rabbit hole. Get yourself on youtube. Watch their tiny desk concert such a good an interesting band. Thank you isha harris monica castillo. Making you happy this week. So it's been making me happy lately. Has been the louis. Miguel series on net flicks. Their second season. Just finished airing on netflix It's based on the life of one of mexico's most recognizable singers. The series takes more of a shakespearian approach to his personal life looking at you know his controlling father backstabbing management and his own personal flaws. He's also haunted by the disappearance of his mother It really sort of humanizes this myth like what we think of when we think of this you know big famous romantic singer Of the eighty s and ninety s. Pretty sure he played it every single wedding. I went to in those decades. And every maybe even even king says because it was like he was like the slow dance king and he's now also executive producer on the show. So he's you know worked a lot with the star of the show diego brunetta in sort of like fleshing him out as a character and mike his performance and i can't say enough good things about the eagle bonita either because he's been researching louis miguel for years even before the series started And it shows. I mean he plays louis miguel from like about seventeen eighteen two in his forties and he mimics all the different body language and the different phases. He was going through in his career almost to its he. I've been watching louis. Miguel music videos. And then diego panetta's performance and i'm kind of an awe of this how well he's mimicked that so it's both like yes. Watch this for a bunch of drama. And if you're curious for old school poppy Latin music you can definitely tune in for that but also like this really great performance from diego panetta. So that's louis. Miguel the series. Thank you so. Much monica castio. What is making me happy. This week is a single play in a single baseball game from may twenty seven. You might be able to find it. If you google the phrase dumbest play in mlb history. It is between the chicago cubs and the pittsburgh pirates The cubs are up to bat. Hits the ball on the ground. Third gonzales simple ground ball. The first baseman instead of stepping on the bag to end the inning. There are two outs literally. All do is take a step back and the inning instead. He tries to chase down the encroaching runner. You really want to watch this off. The runner close to home. The first baseman realizes that a runner is advancing to home from third. Goodness gotta pitches the ball to the catcher to try to get the out that way. Remember all anybody has to do is touch somebody with the ball and the inning is over. They bobble the ball. At home plate the baserunners scores then the batter who was being chased down from. I takes off and runs to. I don't think you're invisible the throw the ball to first. They've mishandled the ball so badly that the the basement are gets up and steal. Second the throw the ball to second and miss by a mile. Balloon is incredible and the entire time. I'm thinking this is what it was like to play softball for the onion. When i was the coach and co captain of the onion softball team back in the late nineties and early thoughts and i have never in my life as a sports viewer watched a play that reminded me of my own athletic prowess that is very much. What is making me happy. This week we will throw it link to that play into our newsletter. We put links to everything we recommended in our newsletter.

And how do they travel to get it under study confirmed that the work will cancer patients like Karen have to do to find get care is a major reason they die more often real hospital closures? He says, don't help patients the issue of travel. Also creates income disparities in terms of access to care, because those with more income on going to be more likely to travel to get their care, more readily. And so these issues of income disparity and geographic disparity. St- start overlap Krista Posta has seen this firsthand in southeastern Kansas. She leads a group of health clinics in the low income. Region. It's not unusual for us to see someone walk in in-state cancer that they put off because they didn't have money in have insurance or it's just the way our we wait too long here for now. Karen is coping after her sister-in-law ferries her from the treatment center to the lab. And back, we wait for the lab test to be processed. And then Karen gets her chemo shot. Now, we are back on the road, and Karen is prepared and I have found that if I eat a few rich crackers crackers on the way home. I don't get nauseated for the next hour.

"We're on the show, and she breaks out dance fairly frequently that's something that I kind of do without really paying attention. I'll cook have music on. And I was also a former dance teacher, so that also happened to be her background as well. And we should note that when Netflix canceled one day at a time it released a statement seeing that, quote, not enough people watch to justify another season. Now the company does not share its viewership data. But then the hashtag, renew OD a short for one day at a time was all over Twitter. And now pop TV clearly sees the value in the show. So what do you think that Netflix misunderstood about the show's popularity? I don't I'm not entirely convinced that Netflix knows how to advertise all of the shows that they have their adding to the service, all at once, you know, a number of my friends who are also fans of the show mentioned that they didn't even know that there was a third season on, even though they had watched the show on their account, and they love the show. And I was the one to tell them like, oh well, did you see the new season because it didn't come up on their queue. What do we know about the fan base for this show? I mean, do we know who's watching well, I think that social media campaign really let us know who is watching, and it wasn't just Latinos, who were watching it wasn't just folks who were there to support the queer characters on the show. It wasn't just wind demographic. I think it really hit across many different corners of you're ship. Of course, the country's demographics are changing. What does this shows trajectory say about the value of diversity in Hollywood right now? I think there is a good push an Hollywood. I still wish. It lead to more shows and more movies being made by craters from marginalized communities and underrepresented communities. That's that's still a long process and one day at a time really felt like a step forward in the right direction. So the fight for diversity and representation in Hollywood is far from over. One day at a time was just a test case for that, and Monica Custodio. Now that one day at a time is coming back this time on pop TV what something you hope to see more of. I'm really excited to see how they're going to continue to explore some of the social issues that they've brought up on the show. They have addressed racism and sort of anti Latino sentiment that has been happening in politics, and in culture. And they've directly addressed that they've also brought up mental health issues in the Latino community, which is, you know, so rarely talked about, and it's given a lot of people and a lot of pieces that have since been written about the show, a way to talk about it with their families.
