Black businesses and artists see increased interest amid racial reckoning

"Week with the growing push for diversity and social justice in the black lives matter movement, black artists are experiencing more interest in their work. CBS News correspondent Naomi Rackham has more on the story. Boston based artist Liana Farmer has seen an explosion of interest in her elegant illustrations of African American women. I've got over 200 orders in the last week, and that was just one day in the midst of a national conversation about racial injustice, more Americans are trying to support black owned businesses and artists. And while Farmer appreciates the interest she wants it to be genuine. You hope that everyone values your work not just for being a black artist, but because you're a person and have something valuable or something that they love. And these artists are reaching new audiences through social media and other

Know also keep you in check so I think it's a good combination of of everything, but. You know it depends on your car. How your personality is like how how you handle criticism and things like that, but Definitely, it's something that you can work on. It's not it's not something that is like. Oh, I was born in the that you can you can. I know it because I had to do it myself. You just gotTa be Kinda. beat. A person keeps making the same mistake as you won't go far. Yeah, exactly okay number two the number two what I have here. I wrote hyperfocused practice sessions. I, don't say it in a business, not in her being hyper focus or anything I. Say if we're GonNa work on something, if women comes in with a plans like hey, we're going to work on this today. We're GONNA spend probably all the time. Working on that and not try to cram in too many things I've recession. You know what I mean say. We're going to work on sizes. We're GONNA work a lot sizes today. It's okay to not hit crosswords down the line for for a day, so we do that a lot I. Think Women Wing as a great coach and he plans you know everything ahead, and we come in. We make adjustments, and obviously depending on how things are going, but but he's. He does a tremendous job at data like Kinda. Keeping the focus at a certain thing for for a good amount of time, but whatever he wants to work on that day or that week and I think with athletes like Naomi when you do that for you don't have to do it for. Long periods of time. We're not going to work on something for a month. She's GonNa be. She's GonNa. Get it after you know two three days. So that's very eye opening things sometimes..

"Hi. Everyone you're so punctual. So the first few minutes of this. We're going to last time we kind of went into it right away and work on a scrambling going to be a little bit more lighter fare to start give folks a chance to get into the into the zoom and then we'll head into the agenda mostly. The meat of the agenda will be having to do with One Mr Dominic team not old. I mean not not only but like we haven't covered that at all on the show. There's GonNa be a game later on that we will play. We'RE NOT GONNA burn you at that this time. It's kind of like in the bane of a newlywed game. I was big on a game shows growing up. I was watching the game show network all the time and so we have ten categories. That were each gonna guess what the other person's answer is. If that's interesting to you at all a little self-indulgent hopefully it'll be fun this is although the prepping for this stuff goes. I put stuff on the agenda. And then he she goes. Is Anybody going to give a shit about that like literally every single thing that we add first off? Y'All watched Naomi today with Stephanos. Kill Bill as an old movie I discovered today. I was in college when Kill Bill came out so it made me feel really upset. I loved Steph was actually taking notes writing down the name of kill bill so he could ruin to watch it. I'm shocked that he hadn't seen it. Feel free to use the chat a lot while you're in the in the meeting for now. If you want. You can mute yourself on and talk with us. We'll let you know when we're getting into like the more serious often than will mute the room. Yeah and not to be or anything. Is Serena so on life. She was doing like her home shopping. Network thing starting at five I think Venus I mean Venus. Has that stuff on lock? Like her lives are so professional. She's got an assistant vineyard questions. It's amazing she so like this is obviously her future career if she wants it. If you watched a lot of you said you didn't watch it but if you watched the naming with Stephanos today I don't see how you come away from watching that with a better impression of him thank. He came off a such a Dick at every turn. I personally am not gonna go that far. I felt like he was. It was awkward. I'm I going to say he was a Dick A D. But we have. We have what I feel like. I feel like the sensor my language yet. He's just a little weird right. He Naomi Post them very straightforward questions. And he can failed to answer them in any kind of normal way. That was my take away from it. They've had this song and dance going on for about a year. No where initially folks were like. What's going on? Are they seeing each other? And it just became very clear to me from the start that it's this high school thing where the boy is so afraid and while I don't take words of Miami's Mo- but afraid of different way. Intimidated doesn't hold actor rounder. And at the end of it she's like you know. I know you thought that I was afraid but I hope this shows that it. I wasn't like dude. Nobody's nobody's coming for you for being afraid of new meals you or just chill. Naomi did well though I as someone who is not naturally predisposed to like being on video like I'm talking about myself now. I think Naomi trying to get better and getting more Like forcing herself to be extroverted is really cool and really scary for somebody WHO's. Who's not naturally like that? You're probably never make the switch like your personality is not. GonNa Change but it's really like to jump out of her comfort zone like that and actually be pretty good at it at school is Joyce. She's also the highest paid woman in sports right now. Yes she is that girls right now. It didn't take Philip and John Lung to start with the mess they ask. Did she ask about Ilan? She sure did but it wasn't. It wasn't even a question it was like you might get mad at me for asking this question but you like Elon. Musk period and that was like that was the question and he talked about. I don't know how he's a genius. This is the first guy like outside of NASA to invent rockets. And I don I have no idea what he's talking about but you can go watch it back if you're interested it. S something that I've seen so many different takes on when Venus had Naomi unhurt instagram for the workout. He says I'm happily surprised at the boundary between Venus and was a lot of folks. Were like that was painful to watch. But like if you know me you know that this is a huge improvement. I think speaks to more Venus being unprepared for that situation. Okay as I was when I interviewed new one on one like a few years ago. It's it's actually a a harrowing experience if you're not prepared because everything that you think about what an interview will be and how you prepare yourself is completely out the door there. There are no rules. Yeah well she's really funny but in a unconventional way like a very awkward way.

"Already unimaginably wealthy while leaving the most vulnerable further exposed. And now we're witnessing the shock doctrine in real time so we wanted to talk with the writer herself. Who helped popularize the term in this interview we chat with Naomi about the possible outcomes of the current shock and how it might influence the politics of climate change. We also talk about Joe Biden's campaign. Michael Moore's new movie attacking Bill mckibben and how covert May Change Society? We started the interview with a quote from the free market economist. Milton Friedman who she occasionally references. Friedman said only crisis actual or perceived produces real change when that crisis occurs the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. I asked her to elaborate. Yeah I wouldn't say I'm a fan of that quote But I do. I have found it a very useful quote over the years Because I think we've seen again and again how moments of shock of moments of of Collective disorientation become moments when society's kind of get pushed backwards because we necessarily are focused on the emergency on on this sort of chaos and the the survival of the moment and and so that's the context in which in which. I use the quote. But I I do believe that crises can also move us forward. I do believe that that crises can be moments of progress and But there needs to be ideas lying around for that too so now I feel like we're we're living your book the shock doctrine real time. Right now I wanted to talk to you about a couple of things that the trump White House is is doing undercover of the darkness of this pandemic one is the first is that the Federal Reserve under prompting from the trump. White House is as said. Let's let's just bail out hundreds of oil and gas producers who were previously saddled with massive debt. Anyway now in the in the light of day they would you know. Those companies who've never tried to shift the their debt burden over to the Federal Reserve basically to us the taxpayers. And yet. They're doing it right now in the middle of this pandemic I mean it's it's like right out of the center of your book and I wonder if you could talk a little bit about that. Yeah I mean there we. We have seen this administration advance the wishlist of the oil and gas and coal industries. Really Since Day. One the Some of the first executive orders of the trump administration were pushing through the Keystone Excel pipeline and the Dakota access pipeline He's a big fan of the oil and gas industry But there are some things that he couldn't do like just a direct Bailout although these are companies that are publicly subsidized regardless but but but particularly the coal companies were worrying crisis now all the fossil fuel companies are in crisis because the price of oil is so low and and they've been pushing that through even more brazen or maybe equally brazen his what's been happening with regulation In this moment of basically saying that it is a health risk to have people enforcing environmental regulations basically the EPA has suspended enforcement of its regulations. But at the same time we've seen a new oil and gas infrastructure which we absolutely don't need because we have this huge surplus of oil and gas because planes aren't flying and cars hurt driving and so but and yet We're seeing new pipeline infrastructure being laid down in the midst of this pandemic for oil that we do not need And the idea being that this is kind of essential infrastructure. So it's worth the risk to the workers into the communities to have these people out there so I mean there's just been no logic to it I'm the only logic is whatever. The industry wanted before. The pandemic is being rammed through undercover of crisis. It is extraordinary. I think if people understood this. The trump White House in the EP was racing to get to issue regulations by the end of March while they were dithering around the pandemic to get these regulations out that effectively destroy environmental protections for cleaner air clear cars cleaner water. And you know all the while they were they were downplaying this pandemic. That's now taking tens of thousands of lives of Americans. I think people understood the radical dichotomy of those two things. I think they would be appalled. I do think people get this that this is what's happening in the middle of this crisis. I think that people are stretched really thin and I think people's health concerns are more immediate right than than the threat of water and air contamination. Worried that they're going to catch a virus By touching the wrong thing right so I think in the a a more immediate shorter term. Health concern is Is creating the space which isn't to say that people don't care right is just like it's just a bandwidth question? I think for for people right I you know we know that the added irony here. Is that This this pandemic is a ravaging communities that are polluted that have high levels of air pollution and And so it makes absolutely no so I mean what would make sense in the of this is to strengthen air protection and water protection And to do things that addressed all of the underlying health conditions that are meaning that certain communities have higher mortality rates particularly communities of Color in the United States that are the communities that were selected as kind of sacrifice owns by the oil and gas industry And so yeah I mean if if there was any logic to the way we were responding to this pandemic then we would be saying okay. Actually we need to clean our our air so Naomi last week in New York magazine Eric. Levitz made the point that makes the argument that when it comes time for one more stimulus Democrat. Give up a lot to get a lot. Of course he says that because the Republicans control the White House in the so. How do you feel about that? Should the Democrats give up a lot and it probably means bailouts for the fossil fuel industry in order to get things back for people who are in financial crisis right now? Wow I haven't read the Article I feel like the Democrats have already given up a lot And so you know. I think that there are certain things that are not going to happen. Unless there is a trait change in administration In we are in an election year. I think we need a change. We need we need to take the Senate from Republicans and the White House So in some ways we are in a triage situation Where we need to protect how hospitals. We need to protect health care workers. We need to protect families from evictions. We need to protect schools From mass layoff. We need to protect the post office. So I think a big you know I I think the IMF they can pass a green new deal right now you know I mean I I understand that but I think that they can defend the public sphere right now. I think it is possible to do that. because I think there is a very very high level of appreciation right now for people who work in those sectors whether they're collecting the garbage or delivering the mail or working in public hospitals. So if there ever was a time to speak up for the public good to speak up for the public sector this is that moment and we cannot give up those fights and so I think we need to choose those places where we can build In the next administration. Because obviously what we can do in this administration is limited and there is a period right now where no matter what. The trump administration does there isn't going to be an expansion of the domestic Oil and gas industry not with the price of oil where it is right now so they can try to create they can try to deliver the wishlist for this industry But they're not gonNA actually deliver a new domestic fossil fuel boom in the current context NAM. I wanted to talk a little bit. I wanted to set this up. Just a little bit for you We've got we're going to have a pretty clear assuming that you know. Joe Biden is the nominee for the Democrats. We're GONNA have a pretty clear choice. You've got a president in the White House right now. Who has utter disdain for science data? Facts evidence you name. It isn't doesn't listen to it. Never takes it on board. You've got a guy. Joe Biden. Who clearly does I mean? I know for a fact that he is paying really close attention to scientists and public health officials and medical doctors and others And as he's trying to work with governors in states who are on their own trying to cobble together national plan. But that doesn't seem to have translated that that sort of that stark choice between Biden and trump in November. Do you think people will get it by then or will a significant part of the Democratic Party really not want to vote for for Joe Biden when it's time to pull in all to either mail in your ballot or or or or make a choice. I mean I'm not a pundit I don't I don't know Joe Biden has a lot of work to do to really connect. I think with the just the atrocities of this moment. I think he needs to get mad and I think he needs to get mad and away. That is believable for people that doesn't feel performance give And and I think that there's you know I think he's sort of pulled his punches and in a willingness to really name the the the scale of the preventable death that we are living through and that is actually only going to accelerate because there seems to have been a choice the in the trump White House now that they just can't put human health ahead of the the stock market that whatever the conventional economic measures are. We're starting to hear even more of these very open. The rationales for mass death We heard it from Chris Christie recently And we had heard it earlier and I think for those of us who follow the climate crisis. There's something really painfully familiar about this When you go to. Un Climate Summit right and you hear the very kind of cold calculations around whether or not we're GONNA shoot for a two degrees Celsius warming target or a one point. Five degrees Warming target and then. There's you know you hear. These desperate appeals from people leading Pacific island nations going. Yeah but if you go for two degree Celsius warming our country will disappear beneath the ways or I'll never forget being in Copenhagen in two thousand nine when dozens of African delegates when they said that two degrees Celsius warming target marched out of the sessions and said Africa will burn. This is genocide. And you're not giving enough money to pay for the coffins. And what they were saying was you are putting your economy your quote unquote economy Your quest for endless economic growth before our lives and that is a very real calculation for tremendous numbers of people around the world and people have understood that this is the calculation that wealthy countries like the United States like Australia like Canada like the European Union have been making for many years when they have refused to treat this crisis like the crisis that it is that they are that their lives are being sacrificed on the altar of the economy and now that logic has come home to the largest economy on the planet to the wealthiest country on the planet and people are seeing it on the nightly news there and they are hearing politicians. Say Well maybe huge numbers of people are just. GonNa have to die so that we can keep the economy going and we're not gonNA have a bailout that will directly help you in the way that we have had a bill. That directly helps Boeing..

"Journalist Naomi Klein traveled to Iraq in two thousand and four one year after America's military invasion. She wasn't there to write about troop movements or firefights there to write about what late Senator John McCain called a huge pot of. Honey that's attracting a lot of flies and it was going to be a business opportunity for Halliburton bacteria into the business. Opportunity was the invasion itself. So you had a huge number of private contractors alongside the US soldiers playing key roles including guarding the Green Zone Companies like Blackwater and then the reconstruction of Iraq after the invasion was also treated as this huge business opportunity for American contractors. That Experience Lead Naomi to coin a term that's been central to her writing disaster capitalism. And so that's why I started writing about it but I didn't use the term disaster capitalism until I started to see the same private disaster infrastructure that I had covered in. Iraq migrate to disaster zones like New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina And to parts of Asia after the huge sue Nami in two thousand and four years of reporting on disaster capitalism led her to another concept. The shock doctrine. That's the name of Naomi's two thousand seven book. It details how crises are used to push policies that enrich a small number of elites and undermine everyone else. That's the strategy of doing what you would never be able to do because the public opposes it. That's what I mean by the shock doctrine and now it's happening again. The trump White House is using corona virus to push bailouts of oil and gas companies demand payroll tax cuts that would undermine social security and Medicare and bail out corporations with little support for their workers. She calls it corona virus capitalism. But this time there are lots of ideas on how to use the crisis to benefit more people and the planet can they be an equally powerful counterforce. What we need in the climate movement is the kind of thing we can only get if people pay attention. If people engage if people organize and participate in their democracy and mobilized. That's the only way we're GONNA get a green new deal so I often hear this idea that well this is just like the left. Wing version of the shock doctrine. It isn't because the whole idea. The shock doctrine is to do an end run around democracy whereas in order to get what we need. We need more democracy. We need more engagement. We need people paying attention.

Was Diddy right about forcing Joe Biden to have an agenda for Black people?

"You never really know who's going to shine during a pandemic during a crisis but A person in a voice that I think has really stepped up in a major way has been Naomi Campbell who has done some amazing interviews and And even just had some conversations herself about the pandemic about politics and Of course I mean she is a woman who's traveled and seeing the entire world but she's just been brilliant throughout the pandemic with just deep insights and thoughts and yesterday she had a conversation with diddy and apart of that conversation was about the presidential race and did he gave his thoughts on it. And I want to play that clip for you now. Black born is now going to be for free. We're going to have to see some promises. What are we in return for? I'll quote nothing has changed for Black America and in order for us to vote for biding. We can't be taken for granted like we always because we're supposed to be Democrats off because people are afraid and trump so I was going to take him out. Community level was to make a deal. This is business at this point. You know we can't truth follow. Titians you know so. We WanNa know very clearly just like trump made it clear that he wanted to build the wall vitamins to make clear that he's GonNa Change Lives in quality of life of black and Brown people else. He can't get the boat. I will hold a vote hostage. Ivine now. I saw and heard that clip earlier this morning when my friend. Sholom in God. He posted it and he posted a loan. Caption if you go to my instagram now or Charlemagne's Instagram I reposted Charlemagne's caption where you could just go to Charlemagne's page and check it out for yourself. I agree with everything they did. He said they're like I. I would say it even stronger. I think it's it's ridiculous to say otherwise but it's a bit of a roar test Which wish if the ink blood tests where you Somebody shows you ink blots and you tell them what you see I heard what did he said. It was like Yep. That's right we need to make sure that Joe Biden actually has an agenda for us and I I heard that and I'm like yeah of course. What other scenario are we saying that we don't care if Joe Biden has an agenda for us because what did he is saying is true? Black people almost exclusively put Joe Biden in the position. He's in right now and he doesn't come close to winning. The presidential election in November without the black vote and all saying is. Hey we need to let him know. Hey if you actually in real life want us to show up and vote for you like in a major way if you want us to put you over the top talk to US clearly about your agenda show us the policies show us the plans show us the strategies instead of just saying that you're going to be different than trump or that. You're better than trump. Can WE BE PRACTICAL. Can you talk to us about your economic policies? Can you talk to us about your justice policies? Can you talk to us about your healthcare community development policies? Can You? Can you speak on these things? And I see several of my friends including Kenny Burns who? I'm doing an interview with later this afternoon saying. Hey Hey that's reckless asked my brother Isaac as the third also posting. Hey everything they did. He said right. There was completely wrong and I was shocked because everything I heard in everything charlemagne heard and and I see many of you even on my instagram debating. It right now. I agree with every bit of it. It's outrageous I mean if it's a city council person if it's a local mayor if it's if it's a state representative if somebody for Congress we should always require of them that they have an agenda that as much as we can make it is binding that they have some type of binding commitment to our concerns and other people are saying no no no. No No. Don't say that. Don't say that you just need to vote for Joe Biden no matter what. And here's the thing. Black folks are gonNA show up and vote for Joe Biden Black Folk vote almost ninety five percent for the Democratic candidate and black folk will show up. But what we know in Michigan in Wisconsin in a place like Georgia Florida North Carolina and others. Is that if you actually want to win? Black folk have to go all out and we saw that in two thousand and eight and two thousand twelve of course with Barack Obama but black folk while black folks showed up to vote in huge numbers for Hillary Clinton in any place where the turn out was depressed even a little bit in in Milwaukee in Wisconsin or in Michigan. She lost. And it's okay for us to say to Democratic candidates to democratic nominees. And let's be real as I record this. It's still April. Were still in the primary. It's okay in April to say. Hey Joe Biden I wanna make sure you actually have an agenda for US okay. Like that's not an let's be real did he is not making threat. He is saying that we all deserve to have a presidential candidate. That has an agenda that actually represents our needs. Our concerns are our biggest issues and that they have to have a plan. And we wanna see it because what we've seen for most of our lives is presidential candidates who desperately rely on our vote but have no agenda for us have no plans for us. They plan on being generally nice. But we need something more than general nicety like we need people that have an actual policy agenda for the concerns and issues that we have and I'm grateful For diddy who didn't say. Hey I'm not voting for Joe Biden he just said Hey We're at the stage. In American history where the Democratic candidate needs to have a serious agenda for black folk and anybody who looks at this situation says otherwise is ridiculous and I see other people saying. Hey He's saying that from a place of privilege I don't I don't understand that. No He's saying it from a position of authority of somebody who generally doesn't go into making a deal with somebody unless the deal is good for everybody in what we want to understand is HBO. We're GONNA make this deal with you. Not only where you are the Democratic nominee but where we go all out to make sure you win the race. Exactly what are you going to do? And if that's a problem for you saying something like that then we need to have a big conversation like we need to go deeper if saying that much Riles you up. And gets you frustrated? Then you have probably been eating crumbs under the table for so long that you are used to people over promising and under delivering. You're used to not getting anything like the U. S. just the standard and so I see a lot of what I think are just outrageous. Criticisms of what he said I think people understandably so so badly want to defeat Donald trump that they are afraid to even ask Joe Biden for favor and is lying. No no we can do. Both we can defeat Donald Trump and in April still argue that they are some things. Joe Biden needs to do and do differently for him to garner our full support.

It's Sharapover: A Complicated Affair

"Thought we had the weekend off. I thought we had bought ourselves a little bit of time doing that. Mailbox episode but Maria Sharapova decided to upend our brief break and announced her retirement from tennis. Let's not do a whole lung. Preamble about this. We're here because Maria Sharapova has retired and we're here to talk about that to situate her career talk about the the ups and downs of her career and put her career and her into some context. She announced this week via an essay that she wrote for Vanity Fair and Vogue which were released at the same time both conde nast publications. It's the sort of flex that only a player of her magnitude can do. It's been interesting to me to watch her over. I would say probably the past year or a little more and an observed how little attention and how little fanfare has followed her around considering that she was once the highest paid female athlete in the world. She was tennis's biggest superstar for for many years and this latter stage of her career has been quiet. When you say only a player like her obviously Serena can do that too. I Know Naomi can do that too. I think those are the three players in women's tennis who have that kind of stature status to be able to call up an A. Winter. And be like. Hey can I can let y'all know in your publication regardless of who can do it. The point is that Maria is bigger than tennis. In the same way that Serena or Roger or Rafa are Novak are bigger than tennis. They don't have to go through the traditional tennis media to do these things they can call on their sponsors their friends mainstream press. They have that freedom does afford them because they are successful and they make a lot of money. Of course I knew what you meant but I think dealing with a complicated figure like Maria Sharapova comment on us to be as precise as we can with our words so as to not open up ourselves controlled. But we're not doing this. The whole episode. Every every statement about Maria is not an equal statement about serene. We're just not. I agree I'm just saying we can easily cost nothing to be more precise okay. You see what you did there. You put me in a position to be the bad person. Well maybe you shouldn't shouldn't do it anyway. Maria wrote this essay. I think there were probably a few journalists and people within the sport who was coming and we can't release it as a massive surprise considering that her body has been betraying her over the past few years. It's been extremely difficult for her. To stay healthy at this point for even a match or two in a row. Her events have been sparse. It seemed that the writing had been on the wall for a little while. What's interesting to me is that there is no retirement tour. There's no final triumphant moment at a Grand Slam. That meant a lot to her. There's no on-court Farewell. It almost seems I know. Use The word quiet before but it. It just seems a little anti-climactic for somebody who has meant so much to the game for the past fifteen years. Sure but to me. It makes sense because to embark on some kind of farewell tour. You'd have to be able to count on your body to a low to show up for right and I think that's what the bottom line is here for Maria. She told this story in her Vanity Fair Vogue Essay. That just getting on court for her match at the. Us Open last year. Felt like a victory getting the shot in her shoulder Infos cortisone or whatever but just being able to play to numb the shoulder and play in the first round was a big achievement and so she was past the point of being able to plan anything tennis related because their body just wouldn't let her right and I don't think she's the type to be like well. Let me just show up for this first. Rhone have a cute little moment and lose six two six two like. That's not the kind of scripting that she would one. No and she's had an interesting career injury wise because after that big shoulder surgery that she went through with that had really compromised her play. She had to rewrite the way that she served. Her game. Looked quite a bit different than when she was seventeen. Eighteen nineteen years old but she learns how to move on Clay. She wins two French Open. She becomes a dominant player. Again will maybe not a dominant player. But she reaches number one again. She's part of this triumvirate for a little while with Serena and as Aranka all the while dealing with this shoulder issue. That is still very much a problem. It's not just that she won the French Open. She was winning tournaments on clay. Yeah her up until two thousand ten. I believe she had one or made. Just one final unclean. It was green clad. Amelia Island But from two thousand ten words you see Maria making a ton of clay finals in fact the majority of her finals that she makes I believe in the second half of her career come on clay winnings took three times and winning Rome three times. So that's like you said a complete change of course from what we conceive of her to start her. So where do you WANNA start here? Do you WanNa talk about her career on the court and just kind of give a little background where she started where we are now and then I mean the extracurricular things are huge story with Maria as always I wanNA talk about first about her influence one of the things that I've seen since the the announcement that she's retired is some folks. Scoffing at just how much her actual influence was and how much she inspired people and I don't think you can underestimate. Just how much influence Maria Sharapova had in bringing people into tenants. They might not be the reasons that you would want people to come to tennis. But Maria Sharapova is Bar. None globally the most well-known women's tennis player. And we know this. Because Jamaicans don't know what Serena Williams looks like. We know this from schools John's quits. I can't tell you how many times I've interacted with people and they're like what would you like? Well I have a tennis podcast and like Oh Maria sharp over. I'm like do you follow tennis. No but they know who? Marie sharp over yes. Her Persona has cut through so many different facets of life to the point where random people know who she is on top of that. There are a lot of people who the very first match they saw was Maria Sharapova match. And that's the kind of thing that can't control. I was a Cheetah van because the very first match I watched was a continue to match the very first men's match. I watch was an Agassi match. Those are the things that that people hang onto. Because it's their first introduction right so there is that there is the fact that she occupied this place of prominence being the top paid female athletes in the world. For so long we can have a totally different discussion about whether that was warranted or deserved that separate and apart. If you're able to separate those two things then I think you can see clearly that Sharipova mental out to a lot of people and had great influence within the tennis world the sporting world and in society at large globally as well within tennis. She is a polarizing figure. We are not going to pretend like we have always been kind to her on the show. We've had our fun roasting Maria over the years. You've had your fun today with the title for this episode and You know. I'm going to be totally straightforward. Maria is not not a player that I loved to watch play tennis. I can appreciate her place. I respect a lot of things about her. She's not somebody who's matches I- flocked to watch and we've been critical about the way that she wrote about Serena and her bulk about how she handled the IT F. and then water ban and there's a lot going on but she is not an a boring character by any stretch. If you were to look back now and Marie his career what is the one word or the one thing that comes to mind what well? Unfortunately right now. It's Mel Donen. That's the first thing that comes to my e. Yeah like if we're doing plane Word Association. I'm not saying that's fair. Okay but I think when we have some distance when I've been thinking about her career. I'm thinking about winning Wimbledon at seventeen thinking about having a career slam on Sugar Povoa. Her tennis achievements are huge. Because very few women have won a career. Grand Slam. Her off-court achievements are also big and they're also painted by the fact that her blindness and her whiteness made her the perfect foil and the perfect heroin. As opposed to this dominant black champion Serena Williams you know she was the great white hope right again. Another consideration of the great white hope for me. The word is complicated when we covered the muldoon thing. We came down right in the middle of the fence. We come down on either side of the. I think I'm still there actually. It was kind of interesting to go back and look through some of the research done for that episode. What like what three years ago? At this point I'm early. Two Thousand Sixteen when it when it came out so almost four years ago we would have covered this on the show and to now be going through it again are thinking about it again and and feeling the same way like not much has changed for

UK Immigration: No visas for low-skilled workers, government says

"It's been a busy week. What with the new immigration guidelines coming out. So let's me tell panel Naomi Smith CEO of the campaign group best for Britain hollow naming. Hello what do you make of the much ballyhooed points based immigration system because there are no visas for low skill workers people coming in to offer work from approved sponsor no benefits to their grunted indefinitely to remain? It's pretty tough isn't it? It's awful. Let's face it. That gloves are off. This is exactly not what people want. And I'll come onto that in a second We've got proof that it isn't It will cripple social care. It will hurt. Hospitality are most of all it just sends a really horrible signal about what Britain is who we are in the kind of society or government is attempting to make us be it is about being a closed protectionist society and not an open one earlier In Twenty Twenty veteran did some MVP polling on freedom of movement and even fifty seven percent of Conservative voters in the twenty one thousand nine hundred general election support reciprocal freedom of movement. There are only twelve percent of the country who are outright against it On on our side they're about fourteen percent of not as who are absolutely happy to accept inbound freedom of movement even if we don't have reciprocated by the rest of the EU. And so. I I think this is awful. I think we need to be talking about essential workers rouses unskilled and low-skilled. Everybody knows that if you've got an aging population you've either got to have policies to change you know to make it more palatable for couples to have more children and to increase your birth rate or you have to import your population to look after your your your elderly. And at the moment we're doing neither An even if we were to start doing some of the policies that encourage people to take more paid parental leave and therefore incentivize people. I leave the workplace. In order to have children it would take decades to get to the levels that we would need after all people and basically what this is about urging companies to replace what they call low skilled jobs with robots but you know in the sector and lots of hospitality we simply can't replace people with robots certainly not yet and I'm sure most of us wouldn't want our loved ones being careful by a machine when it could be in a nice caring individual who's dedicated their life to looking after people and it's a big red burden Big Red tape burden Now as well on employ sorority railroad quite pressed because they are not going to have to assess how staff meeting eligibility criteria. And they've already got lots of other things to do so I think for a variety of reasons. We all just go to admit this is awful. And not what? Britain wants 'CAUSE PRISSY PATEL. This morning was saying that basically there were millions of economically inactive people in which population who were just just wasting apparently takeovers low skill jobs. But of course unemployment Ashley. Very low with me it is. I mean they've got to decide which which is true because both things can't be We do have record unemployment but we also have record numbers of in-work poverty Look to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation recent report on people law under employed to an extent but much of the time. They're doing more than one very bad job that they don't want to be doing. They're feeling very insecure. Their low pay zero zero hours These are unfulfilling jobs on making people. Happy the on empowering them to be the best versions of themselves and to live happy fulfilling lives so which is that government. We either have record unemployment and You know a and they want to disregard all these levels of relative poverty that the people like Joseph Ranch Foundation as saying are true or we have quite high unemployment and there are people to pick up the slack when the so called low skilled European migrants no longer eligible to come it it. You know. It's just it is ridiculous. You're quite right to call hours.

Gioachino Rossini 3: Overtures

"Hello welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Win. Overture comes from the French word for opening vow to. That's what they called the piece of music that opened ballets and operas in Seventeenth Century France. After French overtures became popular all over Europe non-french composers started pending the name overture onto larger pieces of music those overtures or sweets as we now call them consisted of alternating fast and slow sections but they always started off with an overture in the French style. A slow introduction followed by lively second section today the kind of overture we know best is the dramatic overture a piece of music. That gets you ready for a stage. Work that follows sometimes. Those overtures consists of a bunch of hit tunes. That work like the overture to Jacques Oven. Box Operetta the Grand Duchess of Charleston. Dramatic go all the way back to the days when trumpets announced that some royal entertainment was about to start. That's the opening to one of the earliest opera ever written or fail by Claudio Monteverdi. Good overtures really. Get you in the mood for what's coming up for instance you can tell from the very first note that something serious is going to happen in. Mozart's Don Giovanni overtures set the stage for plays to Egg Mont by Gooda is obviously a tragedy as you can hear from the overture that Beethoven wrote for it but when you hear the overture Felix Mendelssohn composed for Shakespeare. Play a midsummer night's dream. You know it's a comedy. Actually Mendelssohn didn't originally right. His overture for production of the play. His midsummer night's dream is yet another kind of overture. A concert overture as the name says it's meant to be performed on a concert and doesn't have to have anything to do with anything. Theatrical lots of times when composers were asked to provide music for a special occasion. They'd write a concert overture. So that people who were sitting for a long time at some ceremony didn't have to sit through a long piece too when you're honest. Brahms composed music for the ceremony at which he got an honorary university degree. He made all the students happy by putting their favourite drinking songs into his academic festival. Overture lots of concert. Overtures were intended for patriotic purposes. Like the one Tchaikovsky wrote for the dedication of a church in Moscow. Tchaikovsky used that occasion to celebrate Russia's defeat of Napoleon in eighteen twelve tchaykovsky certainly knew how to put a rousing end to an overture and of course Soda Gioacchino Rossini. With one he wrote for his Opera William. Tell one of the things where Seaney put into his William Tell. Overture was a musical thunderstorm

"naomi" Discussed on Coming Out Stories

"Senators they asked me to talk about stuff and talk to other women to empower empower them. They told me we didn't even think you were married to a man. We just thought you release Byan so it's okay point. I didn't need to say anything but I think the probably generalizing slightly more tolerant in Berlin than of course that's world suburbans. Don't care Germans don't care as long as you do your work and they accepted me. They said No. We thought you release been so so so tell us a little bit about your film. Sir Is because I've just been very lucky to see one of your fulfills which I have to say was incredibly harrowing serving and it's about young lesbians being murdered in Namibia because of their sexuality and that is going on right. Yes that is definitely something thing that's going on and I choose. I chose this whole theme because visibility of Lesbians in Namibia is up two zero zero and people are only starting now to say okay. My my daughter is different. It's okay stuff like that the lesbians. ESPN sneaking around in secret to meet each other part goes do get murdered every week. Everyday everyday they get raped. And this is psycho correctively. It's called corrective rape on one sense that they get raped because because they lesbian so through get them proper. Whatever supposedly supposedly and then there are the gender-based violence just because if someone if people notice that you are closer to the girls also get killed in what is really horrifying? It's not just killing. It's really humiliating. It's demeaning it's killing it's it's cutting throat off its raping and I With My Fourth Surfing. I really chose this whole rubbish dump because in Serbia a lot of the girls are found by places like this with people who clean up all the have to put things away and then certainly a body the and then they have to figure out who this is and stuff and they told me is is horrified. Well after say I watched the film about an hour ago and I found it. Utterly horrifying is almost something. That's fantastic was wrong word but it seems so other worldly it just seems like how can let's be happening and then you'll telling me the lesbians big murdered a weekly basis for their sexuality not for any other reason no no no it. Is the sexuality thing and of course us. There is a big corruption. I think everybody knows if people are poor. People are trying to get something from other people. Okay I'M GONNA older gun against your head give me give me give me of course it is. The there is also a lot of corruption but when it comes to women and when it comes to girls girls get raped because a raped and killed because of who they laugh absolutely terrified and so do women ever come old guy. Yeah there are lots in the area Lee immobilizing themselves. They were very proud to hit the second pride parade now fifty Lesbians Walking and they actually got a lot of the community people. It wasn't this was about a hundred people. I was so sad that I wasn't there because it is really something that's going on. The actually also did the CEA something like a slut Marshall these these things where they the girls put on the short. What skirts and say you can't just write me because I do this? And they were actually women African women in Casserole to them and said how can you do this. I have to tell my kids in the car that you walking around. Let's go put some clothes on you. That's why you get raped. That's why you do other things stuff like that so it is it. It is the thing in the heads of people that that you need to change. And I'm trying to to give people this idea to show them it. Look it. Is there what it sounds like. It's changing incredibly slowly. Because the other interesting thing you said was actually cast some real lesbians from Namibia In and they were happy to come forward they were happy to come forward. They said No. This is cool. There's nothing like this I wanNA play. I WANNA play. They were at the lady was casting said there was so many girls we couldn't these goods was so great. They all just wanted to be part of it so it was me. It was heartwarming. Because we were standing on the set and talking about these things in these girls were just telling. Oh this is so true only we so happy. Be that you doing this and that we can be seen if people wanted to see your films what they're called and whether confront them. It's called a center series despite its not online at the moment because I'm doing a festival run and after that I'm GonNa be on tallow films in the US a platform for lesbian spe- in finance and the other woman thing was Who's funded considering Lesbians in Namibia put money behind the Namibian the film commission. I must say it's a long journey I made a four. We have three other films. I produced it myself about this theme. I'm about especially lesbians domestic violence and stuff like that. I always try and put together but always say this mainly spin theme there in. I couldn't get get them to sponsor I went to the belly. Nala twice where they were but they had a lot of guys was ding main. Of course this big African men standing And then I want to hear funding for lesbian for myself people funding Namibian Fulham's you coming to Berlin. You're saying you know maybe I'm maybe why can't you find me. And I think S- people started changing and when I went to visit them again before they gave the funding. There was a woman in the team and I made sure that I caught. They were upset that I made an excellent point and I said to you here for a movie i the the whole thing and I am so happy about that and they now so happy that I'm taking it all over. The voice is great and so you know an atom proud sort of lesbian filmmaker. So you walk into that conversation with you. I will have because I have. I've been they put me on the front page of one or two big newspapers as someone writing about lesbians in. Maybe I was speak on the front page. Yeah and I asked my brother in law so what was the reaction of the family said. No one is talking about and that's the thing New don't talk about what's happening and that's what I'm doing I'm talking about what's happening behind.

"naomi" Discussed on Coming Out Stories

"Is a podcast about one of the most important conversations. If your life I'm go swell from someone that came out a bit later in life. She's called name H.. Lives in Berlin where she works as a primary school teacher and filmmaker but she grew up in South Africa and the media. I actually interviewed her in Wales at the L.. I I music festival Malysz. Being a took me a while to get there. How long are we talking? I got divorce last year in July. Officially I've moved out to three years before I was married. Twenty three years to a man. It was a thing of noticing after the five seven years. Already that it that it didn't work. We tried to keep everything together because with two kids. Two lovely kids. They grown up now they great and I think we stayed together because of that and I didn't want to come out sort of DEL everybody. It was difficult. It took a while for me to find myself. I had a problem figuring out who I am. Why don't I feel feel good with myself and I always try to please other people and and things like that now realize also also from growing up so I grew up in a very Christian African Wayne? So where were you growing up. I grew up in half in Namibia in half off in South Africa and my dad because he is a preacher. We moved around a lot. And he's a preacher so I cannot be there saying saying I like girls but I did want to do more things with them and everybody told me you. We almost always the weird one she. My parents actually back to me when high school was finished. We look for someone so that you can go to the farewell party because I didn't WanNa go hidden and he boy was a big thing ahead to go and they actually ask someone from Church Ski and I went with one of the sweet guys from Church and and you remember this dress my mom mate for me and so that I can go there but it wasn't really wasn't me so I'm guessing if you will dot was a preacher. Sure he was very much against. I'm trying to say that is talk about over. My dead never talked I grew up in a community where you do not talk about these things squirrels. especially you don't see and you just do what you told to do. And I don't even think they know really that I- Melissa Lispier Yeah. My mom died. They they know that I make these movies. But I think it's more case of on Omb as the movie make. It's not a case like she is a lesbian. And I just have my brother in law. WHO's the one who really stand behind me? And he knows it and even told me. Don't tell your sister because she might not accept it so well or you might not be able to talk about it and I'm still at that point so you haven't told you sister asking old you all of you. You literally came out yourself. Last year I came out to myself about out. I think last year or the year before I sort of started as soon as I moved out I couldn't take my marriage anymore. It wasn't doesn't that we had fights or things like that and my ex even told me you know what I think you realize because this is not working we tried everything everything. I feel guilty because of this out Christian upbringing I feel guilty because I'm the woman I'm supposed to make things work and have things stand behind everybody in see that everything works out but I couldn't take it anymore in one night. I just said stop. I can't do this anymore. And then he got a he got another woman Was a big thing. Anyway it was already over with me and I said I'm moving out so I actually did something anti-christian anti-african I moved out instead of men. So how'd you buy me asking. How'd you fifty three? So you really didn't come out to your about fifty one. That's a long. That's a long time to how Tom I MUSC- I did a lot of therapy when I moved out even before I came to a point where I wasn't satisfied with with myself I felt like I needed to find myself and it took awhile. It's still taking the journal isn't business a journey it's still taking and that's why for me sometimes talking about these things I'm not sure always okay. How people okay? She says she's lesbian and she she was married. She's not saying and stuff like that. But I find a vein Clinton place through my mind riding and I think at all I'm a rider. I always I always write about women's stories and I started the serious about this lesbian couple. WHO stands up for everybody else now? I'm doing this whole thing. Giving People Mumina I'm Anna Voice to speak up even though I'm sometimes also have some problems with that but I'm getting there I'm getting your your your voice voice for for the people that aren't I'm really the I'm trying to be the voice and I feel very happy when I reach at least one or two women especially Shirley from my community or from my age group from where I grew up who realize okay I can say what I want to say. I can be see what I wanted to be. I don't have to stand behind a man I can just be who I am. So what was the conversation. Light them when you had to turn around to your husband and say i. I am leaving an ice because I'm a lesbian unlimited. I'm a lesbian. He figured it out. I just said I'm leaving. It is telling me you know what your way Discount be and of course the divorce men women thing and fine and I really thought the problem. It's just me it's just me. It just took a while for me to figure out that it's not me. It's not that I did something wrong. It's just the way I am and and the sooner I started realizing it the better I feel and I must say the sooner. I realized that I accept myself. More Seattle AH with a no signs before then when you were growing up teenager. Did you ever feel attracted to other women fairly directed to a lot of girls but I always on Omi table getaway disease a friend just you can go with it and there was nothing like that. When I grew up I grew up really in an African Community? When when you're a girl and you want to play or visit the it's okay? It's not a case of you. Want to be more always. I remember I had a feel friends girlfriends that I always wanted to. I always wanted to see where they are. But I wasn't allowed to an Akron. We go to church. You can say hi and then it's okay and stuff like that when I grew up. Yeah so I guess it was. A difficult conversation was telling when your children did you tell them they figured it my kids. My son is nineteen. My daughter's twenty two now. Yeah and I I think they figured it out the whole thing. 'cause I'm always talking about it and they the ones who come visit me and asking. I was telling them about this festival. Are you going. Let South did they encourage you to go. I think so it because I've been We separated now two years now. The big thing for me is i. I think it's the process of I finding myself so that you haven't haven't explored having a girlfriend. No Wow okay you'll be the first lesbian. Love incident actually. Hasn't you haven't had to go. You're still waiting. Yeah she's she's in front of a face. Why is that embarrassing? The embarrassing some people are just slow developers. You you come into it later in life I think I am but I'm I realized that I am. I actually feel proud about it. Yeah I'm starting adding to say it also known wherever I go and so but I haven't actually like a lot of the conversations. Young Girls. have their parents wins or family. Sit Down and say okay. People I m lesbian. I haven't done that so I still have to go to Namibia. Maybe A and maybe sit down. I've been putting that conversation of going there and seeing I'm doing this is this is it and so but I think I think I'm slowly getting there. It's almost like your work is outing you as an. It's kind of doing it four Ileana until this conversation. 'cause you're making the people in Balloon Sept- accept me as lesbian immediately. The One lady. I work a lot in the women..

Go subscribe to straight up with Trent. Shelton let's go. Let's get it so one of the coolest things that I get to see as part of my job is the manifestation of the product or products that I dreamed up and created and figured out how to do so many of you as a business owner. You get these ideas in your head and it is incredible. Incredible to get to watch them come to fruition and I started dreaming Abou- one of our most popular products the start today journal. I started dreaming about this a couple of years ago. I had been doing this daily practice based on several different people. I had heard about several different things than I kind of put at them together into one daily practice which was every single day. I wrote down the dreams I had for my life but I wrote them as if they had already already happened. There's something really powerful about claiming a goal as if it's already done and I wrote down every day and it was how I set my intentions and and then I would post about it on social and so many people are like what are you doing. What is that? Where do I get that journal and I was like is? It's not a journal. It's just a notebook I'm just writing down the same thing every single day but what I think is interesting as business owners or creators is often in times in fact. Most of the time your audience will tell you what it wants from you and I kept pushing it off because I was like you guys. This is not a big deal but but it was and people kept asking for and I finally just thought what if I turn this into a product and I started to dream and plan and I literally taped pictures to the wall of my office of what I dreamed that my journal would look like and the intention behind it and I wanted the covers to be really pretty and I wanted it to be something that you could do once a quarter and then as you complete each journal. You'd have a stack of this evidence of how intentional you were about your life and we figured it out and I mean you know sometimes we messed up on the shipping and sometimes we messed up on the interior but we failed our away to where we are today. which is the start today? Journal in the hands of hundreds of thousands of people So incredible such a blessing for me to be able to go on instagram and see Hashtag Start Today Journal and see people all over the world using this practice as a way to aim in the direction of their dreams.

"Naomi and Andy move to LA for work. I'm just gonna call me. Andy not jubilee Naomi says it's easier to get paid to do comedy. There. The move hasn't really taken. No. And I will say it's definitely made the depression harder. Yeah. Out here. 'cause obviously with this again, right structure would be great. But this is a business of eb and flow and. Being in a place that is so quiet and sleepy. And also where the bulk of my relationships are with people who are also in this field. It makes it hard to disconnect to take your mind off of what am I doing doing enough? Is it going to happen? That's really hard to let go of when like every person, you know, is having to same conversation in their head. Jim gaffe, again told me one time that that's why he lives in New York. Because when he's in LA wherever you go you're at work like the office is just an entire city. And I know I don't know who you're gonna meet exactly and also I have friends who do other stuff I had to have the friends who are teachers and work in nonprofits, and our lawyers, and so we can get together. And you know, they might like, you know, they're like are excited about what's going on in my world. But we'd there's no like, how'd you get that, you know? That sounds so cool. Show me your baby.

Sometimes sometimes I was like, you know, I just I think I am just going at times. I will be wired the way I'm wired if I don't do the things I need to do to kinda keep myself up. You You know? know? I need I need to make like part of my structure, I need to like go out of the house and see like a friend at least twice a week in a perfect world. I do stand up at least three times a week the way I think normal people go to the gym I need to not sleep until twelve like, I I will so easily slip into that. And I've got to make myself. You know, I gotta be up by ten AM or else or else. It's the Malays will set in and I won't be able to get over it. And then I'm a piece of trash, and it all starts. That's such a wonderful show biz thing I have to get up at the crack of ten o'clock. I know right. I know no job come on. You're not going to work on time. But when I don't have a job when I don't have a job. It's a wrap. It's a wrap. We're talking twelve PM at one sure watch your stories. What do you know about mental health now that you wish new a long time ago? I what I know. Now is that to struggle to attain mental health is not a shortcoming. It does not mean that you're lacking as a person and that you have some fundamental flaw. And I also know now, you know, as people as we are more open as a culture has decided that a lot more people are struggling than you think are struggling.
