"What do you recall about yourself? You know it's really funny when I was 22, I was actually a White House intern. Oh my God. I had no idea that was not set up. Oh, wow. Oh my gosh. Yeah, so, you know, watching that, I was just kind of like, I moved to D.C. and was interning at The White House because I was literally obsessed with Barack Obama. He started running for office when I was in college and it was just a huge deal. And you know, I went to UNC, you rushed Franklin street like when you beat duke. We rush Franklin street when Barack Obama won. And so I just was like, I gotta get to D.C.. This is where I need to be. And so I am not in any way saying Barack Obama would be like Bill Clinton. But if he had been like, I would have totally been open to this. So, you know, I can see how she ended up in that place. You know, especially when you get involved in democratic politics, you usually really care about the issues. You really care about the candidates. And you think that they are just these amazing people. Kind of, and I think, you know, not now, but looking back, maybe, you know, a little flawless, you know, you have to be a really good person to get to this place. And so she was probably just like completely transfixed and you never imagined that the president of the United States would pay any attention to you. But that happened with her. And so I can see how she got to that place. And yeah, I mean, in my early 20s, I had literally believed almost anything. A guy told me, one of my exes, I found a bra in his room. And by the, yeah, by the end of the argument, it was my fault. And I felt bad. I actually felt bad. And so I mean, you know, unfortunately, for her, this was involving the president of the United States. But I think all of us in our early 20s have done really dumb shit that we did not want broadcast across the national news. Shaniqua I know that song so well, let me tell you something. I busted my boyfriend who had, we lived in Portland where you can just stick money into it like poker machines all over the place, like they're in the deli they're in the grocery store, they're everywhere. You can just stick a 20 in there and play video poker and double it or lose it. And he had an addiction, and he was stealing all my tips out of my out of my drawer. From bartending. And he would go play them. And I busted him and he paused. And he hit the wall really hard and turned around, and then.

"A perspective was super skewed. Right. Because I remember being in the writer's room of a show I did in I think it was 2014 or 13. And somebody made actual Monica Lewinsky joke. I mean, like, a real throwback moment, you know? And I think we laughed at more of the like, wow. Here we are. 15 years later, and somebody decided to pull one out. But there was a writer's assistant, a young woman. I mean, she was probably 24, 25. And she said, oh, I love Monica. And it was honest to God, the first time I've ever heard anybody go, stop the room. These are her bosses. These are her higher ups, everybody, and went, oh, I love Monica. And I paused. And I was like, oh my God, we're awful. You just laughed at some joke. Like I said, more because of the out of context of it all. But still, I was like, this woman just did what we all should have just been doing. I got one of us did. No. Shaniqua. How old were you when the actual scandal unfolded? So in 1998, I was 11, so I was in middle school. And as an adult, I actually feel really bad about the way I came out of the entire scandal thinking about Monica Lewinsky. I distinctly remember thinking, oh, she's like a seductress. I doubt I knew that weren't 11, but you know, she tempted him, like, how could she do that to the president? He's just trying to run the country and really framing him as this helpless defenseless man who just could not help himself around attractive young women. And, you know, the first kind of reintroduction to this Clinton scandal for me as an adult was slow burn to podcast. And listening to that, I just, again, I really just upset with myself. Now I consider myself a feminist and you know, I'm always shouting from the rooftops about what women need, how we should treat them and the patriarchy, but was so easily swept up in this narrative that Monica Lewinsky did something bad and wrong. And not that a man who was so much more senior than her, and not just any man, the president of the United States could not be an adult, you know, say this woman is way too young, maybe she is attracted to me, but I need to draw a boundary and not do that. And one of the lines that was really interesting to me in the in the series was one of his advisers was just like, there's no way the president risked his presidency on an intern. And that's all I kept thinking when I listened to slow burn. He literally risked it all just because he couldn't keep it in his pants. He and one of the sort of just as a side bar, one of the things that you learned both from slow burn and from the show is that Ken Starr's posse.

"And it was like, I can't believe he lied to the American people, and I can't believe he wasted our taxpayer money on this in blah blah blah. And I remember thinking that the jokes they made about Monica could have been made about me. You know, I was not a slim Jim. I was, you know, it was all the things that they tried that she was crazy. They all said she was crazy. She was a stalker. I recalled certain points in my 20s when I was like, I think that's technically called stalking, but I'm not sure. We did it. I mean, is making a playlist in driving by your boyfriend's house all night long and just queueing it up so that the U2 song comes on right as you're passing by their house. Is that considered stalking? 'cause guilty. By playlist, you know you mean mixtape. Of course I do. Grace, how old were you? Do you remember learning about it or do you remember experiencing it sort of in real time? I was experiencing it in real time for pleasant elementary school, though, so I didn't know things like semen. I didn't know what that was, really. So I was learning a lot about anatomy as it was happening. But I do remember, I was living in Texas. Remember, this is where I'm from. All of the tropes of, well, this is her fault and she's a whore and why did she tempt him? All the blame was placed on Monica. And the biggest take that I remember consistently, that is still seared my brain. Frankly until I watched the show, which I can't recommend enough, it's fantastic. Are the late night jokes? I mean, single late night host had his take. It was always a male, always a straight white guy. And it was always framed in such a way to make Monica Lewinsky the butt of the joke. I mean, not to say that like Bill Clinton wasn't wasn't the butt of the joke as well. In many cases, but it just felt it just felt so mean spirited. And that's the biggest shift that I've seen from when I was experiencing it as an elementary school kid to today. We've now realized that there is nuance in the way that the media can report on these stories specifically in the way that they can report on it from the perspective of the female in this case. And I have to say that it's exciting to see this new trend of documentaries like the Britney Spears documentary, which talks about the responsibility of the media. And of course, though the American crime story is fictionalized, it's still in the same vein of like, well, wait a second. Let's look at the responsibility of other people in this story that we weren't looking at back in the 90s. So yeah, semen and media. You know, that was one of the things I think that I was so struck by is the scene in the show where they go into the late night rooms, which again is fictionalized, but still it's like the there were people who just spent their day is trying to make her the butt of jokes. And what's also so interesting now is when some of these comedians late night host have been called on to be like, do you feel bad about what you did? And a lot of them are like they were jokes, I stand by them. And I was like, wow, is it so hard to say you're fucking sorry? Yeah. Yeah. Or that you're..

"Welcome back. We're at the part of the show where the personal is political and the political is personal. Shaniqua. What's the dominant emotion you feel when you look at your 21 year old self? Man, just a lot of not regret, but just kind of like, man, girl. You could have done a little better with life. But, you know, you make it out. I always something I did too much when I was 21 was like, have lots of ever clear. And if I could go back, I would tell myself. That's not a good thing to consume on a regular basis. When I started thinking about this, I was reminded that when I was in my early 20s, I had a roommate Amy valpey, yes, I'm name checking you, you asshole. Who we used to shit, we shared a room with two twin beds. And she woke up one morning and was like, you know what you look like? And I was like, what? She's like, you look like a 7th grade boy named Liam. So I think that sums up my early 20s in some way shape or form. But anyway, we are inspired by having Monica Lewinsky on the show today and her show American crime story impeachment takes a look back and we're gonna take a look back at our younger selves. All the moments in our youth, we win that and discuss how it's impacted us today. So basically, girls, welcome to therapy. But before we get there, let me introduce our two panelists today. She's a writer, activist, hysteria is nervous little pepper. It's grace para. Hi, guys. How are you? Girl, how you doing? How's the pepper? The pepper is pepin. The peppers real happy, real spice. Yeah, I would say I'm not like a 7 on out of ten in terms of spicy factor today. Oh, okay. But you know what? What? I think I'll get a little bit spicier by the time this conversation's done because it's a good one. I'm real excited. Well, then I'm gonna introduce our final panelist who may be a little less spicy because she's been posting about eating dinner at 5 p.m., which I only cosign. I mean, first of all, I very much appreciate that I have you in my corner on this. But this is a new thing for me. I would consider myself very European, very worldly. I imagine myself at a court dinner that goes until two in the morning and that's what I thought it was a splendid life. And then I discovered what would happen if you had dinner at four p.m.. And what happens is like, you know, when it normally feels like one a.m. and you're going to bed kind of full with indigestion and drink too much wine and you're gonna wake up at four a.m. really, really thirsty and then just have a bad day the next day. What happens is at 7 p.m. you're like, wow, it must be late. Oh, it's holy 7 p.m.. There's like two movies I could fall asleep too today, before I even go to bed. And for those who couldn't tell, that's actor Michaela Watkins. Okay. I'm sorry. I waited for the I forgot that part. No, why? I think everyone knew it was you anyway..

"We started to see the writing on the wall for this, especially state legislatures last year. And Republicans have been able to just take advantage of manufactured crisis these that they've made up. They've really just ginned up a lot of fear and voters and unfortunately are reaping rewards for it. And one thing I'll add here that I think is something that we can take away from what happened in Virginia across the country is Democrats have to get serious about misinformation. Like we can't just let it happen and be said and not do anything to combat it. It's difficult. Yes, we are fighting an uphill battle. It's much easier to just say things that are not true and just kind of let them go out into the atmosphere, the voting sphere. But we have to get serious about combating that because it's harmful to our democracy, country and world, but it's also part of the reason we're probably losing our elections. Here's my hot take. It's not even a hot take. It's just a thought. But earlier in the year, we had on hysteria, both Jennifer Carroll foy and Jennifer mcclellan, two of my faves who are elected in Virginia, who were both running for governor. And mcauliffe, so happy to talk about this. I wasn't gonna forget the feel. And when you look at and again, like we're saying, we're not trying to be pundits. There's still a lot of information to come in. But when you look at areas that the Democrats lost last night, like Norfolk Hampton roads, it's hard to imagine that two I mean, I think either one of these women would have been a fucking fantastic governor. I wonder if outcome may not have been if people might not have been a little bit more motivated to get out and support one of these two ladies. Yeah, I think we have to think about that. Now, Virginia, Virginia's not Georgia, for instance, Georgia has a lot more the percentage of nonwhite voters is a lot higher. But, you know, looking at candidates of color and the way that they're able to excite the excite progressives more than some of the centrist candidates, it would just be a malpractice for us not to talk about that and consider what could have happened if we had a different candidate. You know, we've already seen the finger pointing about who's to blame about Terry mcauliffe's loss, even though it seems like enough people aren't looking at Terry. Blaming progressives and the fact that the bipartisan infrastructure deal didn't get past. But my friend, she said she probably talked to hundreds of voters just knocking on doors and sitting at the poll. And most of them had no idea what the biff was. They didn't know that there was this bipartisan infrastructure Bill that moderates have told us is the key to success and progressives are trying to pair with. Build back better and kind of pass all this stuff together, but she did say that a lot of parents were actually pissed off about the commentary mcauliffe made about parents don't get a say in their kids education and people, especially politicians slip up. They have gas..

"And you have to make sure you're talking to them, because if you don't, the candidates who are reaching the voters are getting their folks to turn out and Democrats can't just expect people to show up without a message that is resonating with them. Well, and part of it too is for folks who aren't aware, Joe Biden won Virginia by what was it ten points in 2020? So one year ago, Joe Biden won the state by ten points. And now it looks like junk is gonna win by what about two? Yeah, yeah. And, you know, I think that is really important to point out. But I also think it's important to remember that Joe Biden was really unique even last year, because a lot of down ballot Democrats did not do well. We didn't win a lot of Senate seats. We expected to win, and especially at the state legislature level, Democrats did not do well. And so I think honestly, we could have looked at what happened last year to kind of sus out what might happen in 2021. Joe Biden was running against Donald Trump. And I think something that we could see in the election on Tuesday with Terry mcauliffe is that he seemed to think he was running against Trump too and he wasn't. And I think voters understand who's actually on the ballot. And you need to be running a campaign against the person you're actually running against, not just trying to equate them to someone that voters can clearly see is not the same person. One of the things I thought was interesting last night and I wonder if I would like a hot take on this one. Okay. Is that I saw independence broke for junkin. Yeah, yeah. I really do think that Trump was just a bridge too far for a lot of people. And we're really going to have to reevaluate a lot of the winds we saw for Democrats under Trump. In 2017, you look at John ossoff. A lot of attention on that race. Donald Trump had just won. And so people were eager to pour in any race anywhere and help out. And Conner lamb one as well in between that time. But I think once we got to the actual midterms, that is where you just saw all the kind of energy release to say we don't like Trump. And then you get to 2020 and Trump is gone, but again, you had the opportunity to elect a lot of other Democrats and Joe Biden's the one who did well out of all of those Democrats who were running. And so I think we're really going to have to kind of take a step back and evaluate the winds we had and measure it against where people just responding to Trump because I think you started to see that response Wayne as we got closer to the opportunity to actually get rid of Trump and now he's gone. And that's not going to be something that mobilizes people. I don't think we can keep focusing on Trump as much. And that's why I think independence from what we can see probably a shift back over..

"Hello and welcome to hysteria. I'm Alyssa Astra Monaco. I have heard some wild goss here on the east coast. This daylight savings is become very controversial in the crooked offices. Where do you stand on daylight savings? I actually am in favor of daylight savings. The whole point of it is to have more daylight in a day, and that's when I do things. You know, the sun is typically like what wakes me up if I don't have an alarm clock on and yesterday, I had to wait to go out for a run. I got up and it was almost 7 o'clock before I could go outside because I would never go run outside in Hollywood without like some sunlight or daylight, but yeah, I just, I don't know. I think it's smart. I think it makes sense and all the industrial reasons that they came up with it to save on energy costs and stuff. I mean, that makes sense, but for me, I just like the sun being out. I mean, I've never really thought about it much. I mostly only knew about the daylight savings controversy because Jonah made it a cornerstone of his campaign on veep. He was that's how he got the whole his whole caucus together. It was like the anti daylight.

"Okay now that may be offline but it's you know it all seeps in it all becomes part of the culture and that's you know that those are those are ways that we need to change the in terms of the platforms and i actually think they needed sort of go fishing for a week. I think like shut everything down for a week and like work nonstop and reconstruct and really sort of because I think i said this before but this idea around you know when we walk into a building. We assume that the architects and the engineers have structure this building for safety well and these platforms have not been constructed safely into like switch metaphors like they're often presented as well. It's just the public square in its neutral and people do here what they do but and you guys make a persuasive case about this in the documentary there at the algorithms push you they push all of us and they push us towards anger towards rage towards meanness towards all the things that drive engagement that drive the worst of human impulses that are already there but it sort of magnifies them and that's how they make money they make money off of our age and and this sort of safety. Laws don't apply right so in the public square. I couldn't just walk up to you as a stranger and punch you in the stomach without consequences you know and yet you can do that online. You know there's but he. I think also we see the human nature part of it too. It's like okay. We're in la right now. And i have road rage. And it's like i like road rage. Amelie is and it's it's very interesting. Because there's i i've observed it when i'm in the car and then when i'm in new york when i'm when i'm a pedestrian and so it's like happened to me where you know i'm in the crosswalk and someone turns and i'm like fuck you you know given the finger or oh my god my soliloquies in the car of the person in front of me. And don't you have that moment to in that. This happened to me. Sometimes when i feel myself getting in and then the person drives by me and i see their face even that moment. I'm just like okay. Yeah maybe like or maybe. They're having a bad day. Yeah maybe they weren't paying attention. You know it's again. It's the context you know and that's You know it is. I think that context and nuance needs to be part of a conversation. Need to be need to be sort of have a seat at the table. Yes we're having the conversation around public shaming in social media and how we're looking at things to change because the ovhly what people get from the dock You know all of the people Taylor's doing really well but there they she still affected you. Know and taylor is an example of someone who did nothing wrong. She did all the right things and beyond just shoot the target of racist attacks on campus. The first black student body president at woman. I would like buddy president american university. She was the target of all these racist attacks on campus. And then the fucking daily stormer in the neo nazis. There saw the story about her being attacked on campus and then decided to doctor and attack her worldwide. All over the internet to deal with. Yeah and i mean in. So i think that i think what people see and and you know what we hope people see from the dock to is that you know this analogy of you know we all look at the car accident right but how many of us think five minutes five hours five days later. God i hope that person's okay or i wonder what happened to them. We never think about them. And i think that's really what we you know. That's what people will see in the documentary stories that they thought they knew and and really come to understand different different aspects. That way will. There's this incredibly moving. Focus on grace and forgiveness at the end of the film and taylor Dumpson who you're talking about. We're talking about solutions. They want her to run for sure. She is such an extraordinary young. And yeah decides that. She's going to sue these neo-nazis yep and that's that's her solution debt and she wins the lawsuit And the settlement includes she decides what the settlements going to include and she includes this face to face. Meeting with one of the people who heraldic was a young person. Way think that was that was also you know like the restored. Yeah go ahead. And and she decides that It's going he needs to renounce white supremacy is part of the settlement and then he she meets with him face to face and he apologizes and the apology was important to her. Because she said she really believed in rehabilitation restorative justice. And all the stuff. And then this another man that you guys talk to basically who he'd been publicly shamed he he breaks down sobbing The senate finally got me. Wasn't he's talking about at the very end of the of the dock and he's like sitting in bed with my wife and i got this email and i just broke down sobbing. And she was like what's wrong. What's wrong and he said Someone was nice to me. Yeah it's you know. I i could. I could relate to that experience. I was going to ask i for me. It was more letters like people around does would send me letters would did you. Did you people apologize to you. I have gotten letters where people have apologized. Actually it was really. It was quite impactful for me After my first vanity fair essay in two thousand fourteen there was a letter that came in from a bunch of women who were very religious. Who were in a religious group. I can't remember the exact details. But they sort of. They reevaluated their own behavior and wanted to apologize which was lovely. You know And but i think that sense of an and again kind of going back to that idea of e. You really can't know when someone when someone is drowning kind word a smile a hey. I saw what happened or am sorry or hope. You're doing okay like i know. It sounds corny but it is it really and that is that easy for us to do. You don't have to be the person to go.

"Monica lewinsky. Thank you so much for for doing. Off-line hi john. Thanks for having me. So i'll start by pointing out one positive thing about the internet It's connected the two of us. Yes exactly i remember. It was like twenty eighteen. I think i had just seen the clinton affair documentary on a any. And i think i tweeted something about how everyone owes you an apology or a lot of people. Are you an apology and some of the replies were wild i got like we're all gonna tiny window into your but then you and i started messaging about online bullying shaming. Do you remember that. Oh yes l. And also too. I think the other in rhode was listen. Monaco so so good friend in common. I think she had posted a photo of all. You guys somewhere in like okay. This one's cue that guy you that was just like they're all married or gay and it was like fuck so is the best something that stuck with me from. That documentary is that there have now been sort of to cultural reassessments involving you over the last several years. The first is about bill. Clinton's treatment of women that coincided with me too movement. And i had sort of thought about that in my own mind for for many years but the other one. That really stuck with me when i watched. That documentary was a reassessment about how the rest of the world treated you in. Nineteen ninety eight the media comedians strangers on the internet and i found myself getting so angry about that like just watching some of those late night shows so then i started going down the rabbit hole and i saw ted talk and read your vanity fair piece and the line. That really stuck with me. Which is why. I wanted to talk to you. Even before i started doing the show. Was you saying. I was patient. Zero of having reputation completely destroyed worldwide because of the internet. Can you talk about like how and when you came to the realization. That so much of what happened to you was because of the internet I think that it. It was probably not until i started to see it through a different cultural lens and that was really more around two thousand ten so that far off i think that for me. it was post graduate school and a master's is basically like giving you a new camera lens to to to look at the world And so when you get your master's in social psychology london school beckenham so it sounds very fancy i. It was a great experience. I was very lucky to go there. But i think what happened for me was it was kind of this confluence of coming out of graduate school Trying to find my way in the world are really quite scarred and damaged by what had happened in ninety eight and and coming to a very different understanding of the the long shadow the long tail the far reaching consequences of of what had happened and so while that was happening. While i was trying to you know interviewing and trying to find a job trying to find a way forward this tragedy happened With tyler clementi and my mom was actually the one who told me about tyler story. I had been away and not pay attention to the news and Like short version is his roommate. Head secretly webcam ten while he was being intimate with another man. And so it was like you know there had been these conversations around it online and it was like. Hey i've got him on tape. I think probably the details are a little fuzzy for me but basically it was This sort of anticipation of humiliation of this being aired this video i mean nobody wants to be no one wants to have their Intimate moments on audio or videotape. You know shared without their consent and And so he jumped from the george washington bridge a few days later and i the experience with my mom how distraught she was you know and she just she was crying and she just kept saying his poor parents his parents and that sort of struck a different tone with me. I'm obviously we talked about things that had happened over the years but this was just a different a different way into the story and it was sort of a moment where you know i. I started really looking at what was happening. I think that it it had changed in that. Social media hadn't been around in ninety eight and so what it meant was the ra- lot more voices so in ninety eight. What was different. Was this the kind of fastness of it. The immediacy global right instant and Now we had adding to that layer voices invoices invoices of people which makes a difference. Psychologically i hadn't thought about that in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. So much of what happened was until i started watching the american crimes during impeachment which is excellent drudges involvement matt drudge involvement played by billy. Eichner that great job. trudges involvement in this and the cancer report just being put on the internet. I sort of watched all that. And i was like. Oh yeah this is. This was an internet. Yeah one of the first internet scandals now it was and it was so. I think that there were there. Were kind of these I don't know if you this right way to say it. But almost tent pole moments of the of the ninety eight scandal interconnected with the internet and so being one being drudge and that being the first time that the internet broke a story before traditional news and then with the star report there was. I can't remember where i read it but It was might have been a wired piece where the reporter was saying that it was.

"We are in this place where we're just so excited that the other side loses and we're just gonna publicly shame. Each other as a substitute for winning elections are passing legislation. And they're doing things that happened functioning democracy. We used to try to take someone down right. Because legal institutions have broken down democratic institutions. Broken all these institutions have broken down and so what we have left publicly shaming each other. Exactly i'm joan february. Welcome to offline. Hi there my guest. This week is monica lewinsky. Who stop by the studio to speak with me about online public shaming. This is obviously a topic that she's had a lot of personal experience with. She's called herself patient zero but having a reputation destroyed by the internet since what happened to her in one thousand nine hundred eight was one of the first big stories to be broken online by the drudge report. She stayed out of the spotlight for years after that but around twenty fourteen she reentered public life and started speaking out against online bullying public shaming. She wrote a long piece in vanity. Fair should give a tedtalk that has twenty million views on youtube and she's currently doing an awareness campaign for bullying prevention month. But what. I really wanted to talk to her about was latest television project. Not the american crime story impeachment series that she's co-produce though that's a great watch but i wanted to talk to her about a documentary. She co produced on hbo. Max called fifteen minutes of shame. It's a film about what monica calls our culture of humiliation the internet and social media platforms fuel bullying and shaming and meanness and harassment. It is fantastic. I've watched it twice now. And i was really excited to talk to her about it. In this conversation where we cover what it was like for her in the years after her public shaming one thousand nine hundred eight how she decided to re enter public life why social media makes shaming bullying so tempting and easy and what we can actually do about it as always if you have questions comments or complaints about the show.

"Me too era had come about. And at the time, of course, it must be remembered, Bill Clinton was not only the president. But married, and she was very much seen as the sort of fixin who set her cap at the president famously. She was revealed to have flashed her song at him as a signal that she was available. And but of course, a lot of young women become obsessed with their boss and when they're the most powerful man in the world, you know, that has its own attraction, but frankly, all the blame was laid on her. It was actually called the Monica Lewinsky scandal, not the Bill Clinton scandal. And these days, of course, you look at that and you say, well, hang on a moment. He was the president. He was the most powerful man in the world, let alone, you know, your boss at the office with you. What an abuse of power that was. And yet, women, including feminists, rushed to defend Bill Clinton against this young woman who, as the series makes clear, thought that she was in love with him. Jessica, one of my first thoughts was, well, where were the feminists? Why were they not trying to protect support? What Monica Lewinsky was going through? I think that they knew that Bill Clinton had been relatively good on women's issues. And this was tarnishing that. And so they didn't come out to defend. You know, there's a famous interview in the New York observer where, in fact, they're mocking Monica Lewinsky. They're talking about the way she looks, they're saying, oh, well, who wouldn't want to have an affair with Bill Clinton? And much like that clip we heard. It's pretty cringey to read. But I think that there was this sense that this would pass and that, you know, they should put their stock in the person who is going to be better. And as Sarah said, you know, this was before me too. This was before we had a more sophisticated understanding of power dynamics at work. Now, having met at Monica Lewinsky Jessica is the portrayal of her in impeachment accurate, would you say? Oh, you know, it's a drama. It's a Ryan Murphy drama. So there are certain flourishes to it. I think she would say, so she was a producer on a show. And that was really important. To her and to the show because they wanted to get it right and they wanted to show it through the perspective of these women, but how could they do that without actually advising the women? So I think she would say that it's emotionally honest. But there are certain things about it that are a little dramatized. Of course. As you might expect, Sarah, how important is it that one of the is able to almost reclaim her own narrative. She was a producer on this very drama series. So she's able to inform the scripts. I think it's been psychologically very important to her. She sort of came out in a sense publicly about 5 years ago with.

"To the Pakistan cricket star now prime minister of Pakistan. And I think they bonded over that global spotlight often very uncomfortable on very young women. And as grown women, they've tried to shed that and get some agency back in their lives. That seems to be something that we're doing at the moment where we're reassessing women's stories for a modern day lens. I think we've seen that. Haven't we Jessica with Britney Spears and everything that she's been going through? Yeah, I think we are living in a cultural moment where one we have a little bit more wisdom. And so we are looking back on things in retrospect, noticing how maybe they weren't covered so fairly. And I think in particular to these cases that were in journalism, Monica Lewinsky was patient zero for Internet shaming in the sense that she was one of the first stories that was ever leaked on the Internet on the Internet site dredge report before even the magazines or the tablets to get this story. And I think that we have more women working in media now. We have more young women who are looking at this from a little bit more modern sophisticated lens. And so yeah, we're looking back on people like Britney Spears or Monica Lewinsky or Whitney Houston, you know, so many of these pop stars who were treated pretty unfairly at the time and through a modern lens. It's almost hard to believe the way that they were spoken about and written about. So Sarah, how do you feel this new generation of being introduced to Monica Lewinsky, perhaps for the first time? How would they view her now compared to how she was portrayed in 1998? Well, I think they'd view the power dynamic as very different. And certainly that sort of global shaming.

Okay so i don't know how many pieces that is. But i'm going to say that some around six hundred seventeen shirts and leggings. Probably can't you still can't pick no goes up. Yeah it's fun right. You don't know what's in it but get excited about and then it's going be the most egregious part you don't get to now be your own like fast. Yeah like the pattern. The moon is alive. Jumping over like spoons. I don't want this would be like. It would be amazing when the unicorn leggings would show up. You're like this is what i wanted. But you didn't why can't you just you couldn't just pick. It would just show up and if you cry at the thing you wanted. You had four thousand leggings with hamburgers on them. I wouldn't ask you weren't so we're not we who knows what julie was on facebook during this time. She's now but god knows she wasn't up into the lula rose. Yeah now i see that. They changed their logo. Which in the in the documentary and it was. It almost like an instagram logo. It was like it was rainbows at same square but it was like instagram very similar.

And mary's been a rep for leroux. This entire time and still is just went on a vacation. Someone said she just went on one of these like she qualified for the crews. Or whatever. And i imagine she probably has a lot of people under her and people always said like how is it that each wife has their own house and this and that and sharing the money but not sharing the money and they're like. Why does mary get as big of a house as the other women who have six and seven kids. Mary has one and she's outliving her lesbian life. Why does mary neo four to five something she needs it for that fucking lula row close jewelry light and she was like screw your jewelry. I'm over here doing the leggings. Yeah and she's i think she makes a lot of money and thanks to leroux which is also they. Both the owners were in the mormon faith so it is very an. I've i've read that. A lot of mormon women are involved in multi level marketing businesses and a lot of mormons are because it is about staying home. Making money and warminster are really hard workers. And they're like and there. There are the salespeople. I always said the reason. Mormons are so successful is because they had to go for two years and try to recruit people imagine going door after door. Nobody says yes. And you just keep going then cut to ten years later.

Impeachment: American Crime Story Tells Monica Lewinsky's Side of the Clinton Scandal

"Crime story impeachment which come on september seventh if i if i run my dates correctly. Here's my big takeaway from the abundance of trailers at they have released for this in the last three weeks. Really like quite a push. So and i think i'm starting to get the feeling like this is going to be an american story o. Oj simpson moment. Where i think we're going to revisit a lot of the stuff from the clinton impeachment monica etc. But i have a question about all these trailers. We still haven't gotten a significant amount of time with clive owen. His bill clinton which leads me to believe. They're either sitting on marlon brando in the godfather level performance or marlon brando. Doctor moreau level performance. Like it's it's going to be one or the other that is definitely a take and you may right. I choose to think about it slightly differently. Which is they have two things one. It's very very hard. I mean presidential performances especially in this era are almost uniformly imitations right and it's distracting to be like oath. He's just like bill clinton. Yeah whatever Falco place. Hillary clinton like i think it was a smart move to minimize them in the trailer because immediately becomes about. Wow clive owen. Doing a great job being bill clinton sure in it's distracting from the show. They wanna tell. I think the second piece of it is the from my understanding of it. The reason to tell the story about something that you know obviously isn't fresh and a lot of people's minds but i for people of our age our generation certainly is. Is it for. Sarah paulson to win more awards. That's going to happen. But i think it's more to tell the story of the monica lewinsky and linda tripp and people who were actually the prime movers of this. That shook the firmament that the much larger figures were resting

Cuomo's Fourth Accuser, Karen Hinton, Speaks Out

"About Governor Cuomo. And we have with us here on the show his fourth accuser, Karen, hidden Karen, you seem as we were talking about before the break. Very protective and feel really bad, especially for some of these younger women. Um, you are the same age right as Governor Cuomo. So you thought you you had been experienced in terms of dealing with Politicians and a whole bunch of things. But of course, never anticipated what had happened here. Do you regret that you didn't come forward sooner? Yes, I regret it. Uh, but on the other hand, I Never. There was never an opportunity for me to speak about it because there had not been any other public accusations. And you know, at By the time I had turned 40 I was no longer working for him and didn't work for him again. Um, you know, we weigh moved my husband on my second husband. I boot from Washington to New York. He began working with Governor Cuomo as his director, state operation. And um, and so I wanted to be supportive of Andrew's position as governor of New York and I wanted him to do well and I had unhappy a great deal of respect for many of the programs and policies he's put into place. I mean, the work you did around gay marriage. Was was very moving to me and very important. To this country and the work he's done in Cove it even though he's now facing criticism and rightfully so. His handling of the Because the manipulation of the numbers or the nursing home deaths occurred, whether it was in the hospital of the nursing him. That's very problematic and rightfully so, and we should be concerned about it at the same time. He also has done a very good job of of one of the first governor because it was one of the first hot spot to really take control of the terrible situation and try to turn it around and the death and the case is dropped. And they're continuing to drop now. But do you wish like maybe do you think maybe if I had said something 21 years ago He could have. It could have illuminated his behavior could have stopped his being out late. Do you think we live in it? We live in a country. Even they, uh, you know, it's problematic for the young woman who are coming forward. Now they could end up losing jobs or not getting jobs in the future, and people may want to stay away from them. And so, uh, my decision to do it now we try to stay. You can't speak out. You don't be silent, Speak out and support these women so that they can continue to function and have vibrant Important careers because in 1998 When I'm working for Andrew Cuomo. And then, of course in 2000. This was a time when they've been so much that the board about Bill Clinton's womanizing. And I did not want to find myself in a position where I could lose my my job. I could not get another job. I could lose clients who might hire me as a consultant after I left Hut. Wait. The country was not in a position to try to believe a woman. Did anybody believe Monica Lewinsky at first? Did anybody believe other women from Arkansas who accused Clinton of inappropriate sexual behavior? No. They made fun of them. They called them been those They called him trying apart trash. No. Was I going to Uh, come out and say something about Andrew Cuomo in 2000. No I had anyway, I just decided not to do it for fear that that it would hurt me would hurt my family. And so I just opted not to say anything. Then time passes. And, uh, Andrew, an odd developed a friendship. I'm now married to someone he has known for a long time. Um, So you know I wanted doing I didn't want Oh, Tonto in any way harm that relationship, um, that he Had with my husband, So I just decided to keep it between my husband in May and another friend. That's it. That's what I was going to ask you. You told your husband and you told her friend. Um, did you ever tell? Did you ever talk to the governor and say Hey, what happened? Whether it was, you know the next day or a few years later, Or did he ever say anything to you Apologize even No, no, I wasn't gonna bring it up. I didn't want to have that kind of drama in my life.

So I just wanted to leave it there and looking back on it. Should I have done that? I wished More than anything that we lived in this society in 2000 turn of the century that we lived in the society where that type of behavior Would rarely happen when you're dealing with a person you are paying money to for help, and you're in a position of power, but no That's not wasn't the case in 2000 and 21 years later, it's still the case. And, you know, I'm now 62 years old. So you know, I've got I've got a life ahead of me that doesn't really involved. Um, um, Anyone needing to do me favors and get me a job? That sort of thing?

What To Tell Kids When The News Is Scary

"Auntie whether it's a tornado or a terrorist attack whether the kids heard about it on the internet or on the playground six takeaways to help you and the little people in your life make sense of a world that can feel really overwhelming takeaway number one. We can control the amount of information we can control the amount of exposure rosemary. Says for starters trying to let your kids watch or listen or browse the news without you and try not to stream it or leave it plan on the background all day long because my parents had twenty four hour news just kind of on around the house throughout the day. I absorbed more news as a child. I probably should have. Molly lewis is one of the many folks who share their story with us. She was six years old when the one thousand nine hundred six murder investigation of jonbenet ramsey was getting wall to wall coverage. Joe ramsey and i were pretty much exactly the same age and i knew that murder was a thing but i had assumed up to that point that murder was just a thing between adults and suddenly i was learning that children could also be murdered. And what's worse. That could be murdered in their homes. Potentially by someone that very much trusted my gosh. That is such a heavy thing for a six year old absolutely and i mean but it's going to happen if kids much time with content. That's not meant for them. And i remember corey a couple of years ago. Common sense media reported that forty percent of parents of young children say the television is on always or most of the time in their home whether anyone's watching are not forty-two percent. Yeah yeah appearance of kids under eight right. Yes without realizing right. So it's pretty common. So i asked his about this. So concretely. should we have news on in the background when our young winner kids. Young kids are around. That's probably a good rule of thumb. Because you can't control you can't control these breaking stories which are always breaking so that's priority number one. But what if you did your best and your child's still sees or over here's something on playground or online. Yeah i mean you. And i both know when you can get a little older. You cannot control everything in here and so something's gonna come up. It's going to upset them. They're going to have questions and you're going to need to talk about it with exactly and that leads us to take away number two when you do have that conversation with your child about something. They've seen or heard that scared them. You need to begin by asking them what they know tear conley. The media researcher says to choose a quiet moment when the phones are down the. Tv's off maybe on the way to school allowing them to have that space where they're asking questions about what they're seeing how they're feeling and what do they think who they think. The story is talking about basically giving kids espace to reflect and she said this also gives them permission to bring up something that may really been bothering them. Also asking what kids already know. It's really important first step because anybody who has kids knows that kids often will develop these wild misconceptions when they don't know the full story and they have very little background knowledge and very little understanding of the wider world to help them here right like alison docker really warfare. Involved like hairy apes or the story from emily pro cop from connecticut. When the monica lewinsky scandal happened. I sincerely thought the whole thing was in the news because she got a stain on her dress. I was terrified that any stain. I may get on my clothes would end up being the laughing stock of my middle school. Die still get an uneasy feeling when i'm at a party and spill anything on my dress. I feel so badly for emily.

Ex-Florida gov. candidate Andrew Gillum to enter rehab for alcohol abuse

"The subject of Andrew Gillam sure about this so word has it this guy by the way if you don't know who he is he is an ex Florida governor's gubernatorial candidate and apparently they found him and another guy in a hotel room and the other guy was well pretty much unconscious and had mess all over his face and apparently the guy was wearing something called chaps yeah if you don't know what shops are well you just go find out for yourself but don't do it on a work computer and Gillam is sort of you know walking around in some sort of a hazy state now turns out the guy who was with Gillam in this hotel killed you know married I think he's even got some kids it's Gillam E. is caught in this hotel room with this other guy who is some sort of a male escort now I had so a third guy comes into the room to continue the party she got Gillam you got this other guy who considers himself a some sort of like a male prostitute kind of a thing wearing chaps he's on mass Gillam apparently is drunk or high on something so he's rather inebriated as well so that the third guy walks in he sees the male prostitute he's unconscious barely breathing any calls nine one one so the officers that arrived due to the fine but Andrew Gillam you know the guy who was running for Florida governor so I'm now Gillam does what most people would do in this kind of situation he is going to enter rehab who didn't see that one coming now if I remember right this guy is corrupt as all get out anyway former Florida candidate for governor Andrew Gillam disclosed on Sunday that he is entering a rehabilitation facility saying he had fallen into a depression and alcohol abuse after losing his bid for the state's highest post you know I usually have a couple of fi chocolate chip cookies when I get depressed maybe chocolate chip sundae that kind of a thing I don't go into a hotel room with a male prostitute and another dude with a bunch of mass Bill Clinton you member Bill Clinton with that whole story in the last couple of weeks yeah you know what I was dealing with the pressures of my job so I started doing what I was doing with Monica Lewinsky now Gillam is saying that he was depressed after losing his bid for the governorship and so he decided to enter into a hotel room with mass a male prostitute and another guy it all makes sense now by the way yes he is a Democrat the Democrats statement came days after Gillam was named in a South Florida police report on Friday said that he was inebriated and initially unresponsive in a hotel room along with a male companion where authorities found baggies of suspected crystal methamphetamine so there is your Andrew Gillam update he's not charged with any crime he was allowed to leave the hotel how do you explain because I just how do you explain that to your wife Gillham said in his state there is by the way there's other things about this story that I cannot say on the radio I would so love to is one of those moments I wish I had a podcast I Gillam said in his statement on Sunday night to last night that he resolved to seek help after conversations with his family and deep reflection calling the decision a wake up call for me I thought that was a wake up call for your family to his exact quote since my race for governor ended I fell into a depression that has led to alcohol abuse he said pledging to work quote to heal fully and show up in the world as a more complete person because you know his world was not complete with a male prostitute in chaps in a hotel room with methamphetamine he said that he would be stepping down from all public facing roles at this time that's probably a good idea Delem I mean I would if you really think that's awfully big of them to step down from all of the public facing roles does he really think that people well you know this is a Democrat this hit me you know what maybe he was you know identifying as a married man but he was actually you know something else maybe that's what all this is about he says I want to apologize to my family my friends and the people of Florida who have supported you know I thought we're all supposed to you know like social distance apparently not for Andrew Gillam he missed the memo he says I want to apologize to my family friends and the people of Florida who have supported me and put their faith in me over the years he added requesting privacy for his family in an earlier statement after the police report became public Gillam said that he was in Miami beach for a wedding and did not use illegal drugs drugs he says well I did have too much to drink I want to be clear that I've never used methamphetamines what about the prostitute male prostitute in chaps I mean you know what enquiring minds do not wanna now he says I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this is caused for our movement while the police report said Mr Gillam was unable to communicate due to his inebriated state let's see here he found the guy apparently on some sort of a some sort of a like male prostitute website I get there I'm barely there is such a thing police say one of the men came into the hotel room and found Guillemin Travis Dyson thirty years old apparently under the influence of the unknown substance officials began chest compressions on Dyson and he was taken to a hospital where authorities say he is in stable condition and Gillam had stable medical as signs with authorities there return to for a welfare check he was allowed to leave the hotel for home yeah I I don't know how you explain that to

Netflix's 'Love Is Blind' brings the reality dating show into 2020

"Netflix plan to take over television has extended to dating shows for a while. But perhaps they've never made one so weird so baffling at so cringe. Inducing Lee embarrassing for everyone involved as love is blind and you probably know someone who's watching it then what the show insists on calling an experiment. Couple sit in separate cells that they call pods where they can hear each other but not see each other and once they've had a conversation or two if they're getting along they get engaged and only then do they meet will any of them. Make it to the altar. I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes. We're talking about the NETFLIX series. Love is blind on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR joining me and Steven from NPR. West is one of our most treasured friends. Who the record should show. We did not force to watch. Love is blind Sam Sanders the host of. It's been a minute. Hello Sam I would. A page ought to be on this show. We should also point out that Y'All can't see me in her. We're trying to figure out whether we can possibly have a meaningful conversation county each other so before we get to deeply into it. The basic idea of this show is that you start with some men and some women they all sit and if you think of them as little tiny prison cells with furniture and painted walls they are separated by a wall that they can't see through but they can hear through so it's basically like having a conversation with someone in two adjoining phone booths. And so they talk to each other and then if they like each other enough to get engaged without ever having met or spoken to a non television based situation they move out of those pods and they go on vacation and live together and see if they really really want to get married they all have to have a wedding and go up to the altar. And then when you're up there you have to decide. Are you going to say yes? Are you going to say now? Dump you forever Steven. You're a viewer of trashy television. Way Back leaving. Some fairly trashy dating shows enough that I can peg this show as a combination of the bachelor married by America and Mr Personality hosted by Monica Lewinsky. Boy Cut. What did you think of this one? You know the first episodes I struggled a little bit. I found it very stressful. It's got some of that kind of falsely generated conflict. It's a dating show. I've kind of weaned myself off of the Bachelor Bachelorette for kind of ethical reasons as much as anything and getting back into a dating show. Took me a couple episodes. At which point I could not stop watching it. The instruction going in with Stephen. I know you're very busy right now. Even just watch three or four. I've watched all ten and burned through them. Basically in one sitting one of the things that makes this show. So Benjamin is that it's on Netflix. So there are among other things no commercials and no reason to break into the show and say begun. And then I'll come up the senior about to see and then you come out of commercials. Here's a recap of what you saw. Before the commercial break with the bachelor going back but he's Ryerson on streaming services edited versions of the Bachelor and the Bachelorette where they cut that crap out and then each episode will be like twenty six minutes long. So this doesn't have that but it's centered on this ludicrous false choice between getting married or never seeing each other again. Which is down like they're not allowed to subvert the show in any way they're not allowed to say like f you were dating. There's sort of forced to do one or the other and they. They all seem to buy into this experiment in a way. That is very silly but at the same time it is a weirdly intoxicating show that I ultimately enormously enjoyed even though it's very very stupid. Yeah I basically agree with that. Take Sam a hit me. What did you think? Oh Man so. There are two big reasons. I love this show one for what it says about net flix and to for what it says about what we normally do. And don't say about love one. This really shows that like in spite of trying to be the place for Prestige Film. Net flicks is actually really good at reality. Tv You'll recall. Cheer you'll recall tied in with Marie Condo more queer eye or nailed it or next and fashion or the glass blow reality show followed by the circle and now this. They're making really good addictive reality. Tv and that's for several reasons. You know some of Stephen pointed out. They don't have to commercial breaks thing. Let these stories flow and organic and then in many ways they are not overproducing this stuff when I compare What's going on with. Love is blind to like the bachelor. There seems to be less direct manipulation by the producers. They'll be plotlines in the bachelor of where the had the couple go to a country music concert but wait turns out the country. Music singer is one of their excess craziness. Ensues you see the last of that with the blind makes it feel more earnest. Even though still fake I know I know right at the very least. They're better at hiding it. It doesn't feel conspicuous. Whatever manipulation there is and you know they're certainly is like we're all going to happen to meet up with my parents and I. It does become kind of something that you know is is staged in some of the same ways but I do agree that they're better at making it feel like something that could happen in a real person's life. Yeah so that's the first thing like this to me is evidence that whether they like it or not. Netflix is now better at reality. Tv then movies and with that the second thing it says to me is the things we do or do not talk about publicly when it comes to courtship. I think this show is really brave and having these people who are strangers very early on in their quote unquote relationships talk about race. Talk about physical appearance. Talk about money. One of the couples has to deal with the fact that one is black and one white. And they discuss it. The entire time very openly and candidly and responsibly. Another couple Barnett. And what's her name? Maria she's flat broke in one episode. She says to him my credits crap. I don't always have a job a few months ago. I was Outta my car. What you think about that. You would never see that on the bachelor you would. And most couples don't talk about that until it's too late so to see. That disgust candidly on this show. I find it kind of refreshing. Well it's one of those things where it's both early and too late because on the one hand only known each other for a couple of weeks but on the other hand there are already engaged so I agree that there's that funny. There's this funny conversation between a SAM mentioned Barnett. And amber where? It's not just that she's saying like I'm broke or whatever and he asks her. How many days a week she works and she says as many as I feel like she says I work to live. I don't live to work. Which is one of those things red flag that could be as you said. There's such a fine line between my queen and I know the same way about folks to say that as folks who say. I don't do drama. It's like Oh no. You don't drama. Well right actually do drama. You sort of have to theoretically talk about those things but you have none of the history that might make talking about those things in some ways both easier and harder. But you have to do it anyway. The part that I found most jarring to tell you the truth was like the very first time someone in this show says I love you. I almost crawled out of my skin of so weird so weird. The other thing I think is amazing about it is the people keep saying this is crazy and I keep wanting to say yes. It is run. Are we nuts? Yes in like that is what makes me. What's become the saddest story line in this show? And this is the story of Mark in Jessica. They have a great emotional connection. But Jessica doesn't think that mark is physically her type. He's not tall enough not Nordic enough not blonde enough not white enough and that becomes clear very early on and she never just says that he's also ten years younger than she is and exactly former relationship. Where if it were a family pet you would phen. Is it out of mercy? Twenty hours before this show.

"All right famed attorney royal Oakes attorney to the stars and a prominent legal analyst a regular here on a land of evening news is with us day three of the impeachment trial royal always good to speak with you my friend welcome back good to talk to you and I never thought I'd feel sorry for United States senators but I'm starting to feel that way after their twelve hour plus days with no cell phone they can't say a word and listening to the speakers essentially regurgitate the same message over and over it's going to be a little tedious for them yeah absolutely and just a little side note you probably heard that they're only allowed to have water or milk in the on the Senate floor as well no caffeine making it even more difficult this is only the third impeachment trial in the Senate ever so there is really no mold or model to go by royal right everybody is saying the Clinton rules this is how we did it with Bill Clinton this is how we should do it here but from a real court room perspective what do you think about how this is going well it's hard to think of it if from a real courtrooms perspective because it's so different for example here Chief Justice John Roberts is kind of ceremonial he can be overruled at any point on any issue by a majority of the Senate and so yeah it's it's hard to think of it in those terms of the jury of course instead of middle Boris we picking people who can be objective you've got a hundred people who are political animals you gotta figure that pretty much already made up their minds you covered the president Clinton impeachment what do you think about Donald trump's legal team especially Ken Starr it was amazing that he would hire somebody a few days before the trial I know these guys are brilliant lawyers but you know when you get ready for trial you're totally immersing yourself like a tea bag into this soup of evidence and it's amazing to think that they don't have to be able to get up to speed that quickly and when you compare to Clinton of course you suggest that's the model where you have some deposition testimony videotaped of Monica Lewinsky back then in a couple of other witnesses and then it was played on TV for the senators that's what Mitch McConnell I think is hoping for you to know what this is we're just a few video tech with this is to keep this thing a short and sweet as possible and going back to the two original charges when the house passed the impeachment charges against president trump abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and what we're hearing from a lot of our listeners and what we're hearing from Republicans is that the obstruction of Congress is not a real crimes or it's certainly not an impeachable offense is that true well you know what it boils down to is that there are no clear guidelines as to what is impeachment worth it now if you argue that it has to be a crime literally on the criminal law statute books then there's a good argument to trump didn't commit a formal crime but the Democrats believe that something is generic and anymore this is abuse of power is a legitimate basis for impeachment we'll see what the senator said but probably more importantly was hit with the voters say in November there's no jury here but they do have to convince the Senate which is ultimately the jury that the president did abuse his power it's a subject of thing doubly subjective very political and of course let's face it realistically the Democrats down fifty three to forty seven in the Senate to convict you have to have a two thirds vote or sixty seven where are they going to get twenty Republican senators to vote for conviction is just not going to happen unless a nixonian smoking gun piece of evidence emerges it's kind of for show it's a made for television production with the Democrats hoping that it will sink into the voting public and influenced or voted November all right royal oaks with us from Los Angeles royal thank you as always okay if you take
