"This is a special show today, Friday October 28th, where I want to get the word out about what is happening Monday at 8 p.m.. That's October 31st reformation day to get the word out about a video that has been made. It's a short video. It's a powerful video. It's not sensationalistic. That's what makes it the more horrifying is it's a very simple step by step narration of what happened. So we've been talking to our friend Kevin sorbo, who's the voice of the narrator on this, but we wanted the woman who made the video to come on and we have right now. Laura Klaus and welcome to this program. Hi, thank you so much. Thanks for having me. Well, listen, I am just so thrilled to see this happening.

She'd previously been involved in a rollover situation but her guts were unharmed while her previous owner wasn't thrilled at the thought of hanging onto an imperfect vehicle. I was poor and open to the idea. She costs seven thousand dollars. It was a fortune. Then let's be honest also now but she seemed worth it as she was sturdy. Safe and even trendy. If you squinted your eyes and allowed for creative liberties. I was bigger than still swollen with the possibilities of the lives. I might lead a wealthy novelist a stylish professor or quirky artist a journalist and actor or maybe a movie director but most of all a dancer.

It was the gillette razors. Yeah the first video. That i did that. I got my channel attention. Was this gillette parody right you. You remember the gillette. They were essentially saying like. Don't be a manner horrible. Don't be so toxic. Be a better person and they had some racial stuff in there. Like all the bad guys and the video were white and then they're like black friends would stop them from hitting on a girl or something like that if they were the hero guy you know it was just such a leftist dream commercial and but the dialogue in the in the video and the ad. The voice over narration was was very left wing. It was the way that they talk about things. They don't want to expose their real intentions. They want to try to convince you to be better because they know that you're not good enough as a man you know and so i just took that you know that voice over took the ad mostly as it is. There was a couple of cuts in their. But and i did my own voice over which moore obviously in clearly stated what their intention was which was to say like men are terrible. You shouldn't be you shouldn't be a man. Every man should transition. I didn't say that. I made it clear what they were saying. In simple terms and that just by itself was funny and people really resonated with you know well over a million views and the only issue with that was i wasn't in the video is just my voice and nobody knew who i was note knew what i looked like so mike channel had gotten some exposure.

Voiceover talent voiceover actor and an audio description narrator. Thanks for joining us. Well thanks for having me ryan. I'm thrilled to be here. I could hear it yes. Let's get into it. What you love about audio description you know. I've been narrating and doing voice over work for twenty five thirty years. Every job is different. Every type of narration is different. What i found though from the moment i started doing audio description is it's like the narrative part of an audio book. The whole less is more kind of thing i find. I don't actually do anything. it's just. I'm in the scene and it draws me in the the sound design draws me in everything about the shore. The film just draws me in. I just kind of go with the flow. It's almost like when i'm finished. I'm coming out of days in a way. I don't know if i'm explaining this right. But you're in the flow. Yeah yeah it just immediately from your first job. I did it just. It just threw me in that way. The closest thing. I can like an a two is the narrative part of a of an audiobook scoop back to what you said about the the lesson more. When you're when you're not doing anything. I can only imagine the that's coming from the the twenty five years thirty years of experience that you've had in voiceover i i'm hearing you say that you go with the flow and you're you're in the moment as well as Doing less as more can you. Can you help explain to someone who might not be a performer. Or an actor. Would you are bringing. That is less like what is that less. Could you define that. I don't know if i really can. I do a lot of corporate movies. For instance and it's kind of this is who we are. This is what we do type of thing in the corporate realm. So you're not over projecting or doing anything like that but you are telling the story of the corporation in affirmative way. I don't. I don't know if i'm describing this correctly. I also narrate documentaries and that's different because you are linking different parts of the story. You're not drawing attention to yourself. But you are providing linkage between different parts of the story with description i find. It's even less than that as far as not drawing attention to yourself. It's if i'm watching something with description. And i have to tell you since i started doing this everything i watch i have the track on. I love it. If i'm noticing the narrator the narrator isn't doing a good job with the best narration i can't even tell you who narrated it or what. Their style was or anything about it. All i know is i've captured all of this information that i otherwise wouldn't have captured what i'm hearing. Is that as both a performer of audio description narration as well as in audience watching a show with audio description. The there is this immersive experience..

It ain't enough that we had white Kevin Arnold in the 1D is one of the literally my favorite show outside of like the classics all in the family and Sanford and et cetera mesh. But the wonder years. In the 80s, it was the one that reasons why I wanted to become a writer. That narration. That narration of a youthful stories. Well, what do you think I'm doing now, guys? What do you think I'm doing now? I'm doing what Bob Saget did and what got into my head in the 80s watching a young Kevin Arnold. And the fictitious neighborhood that really was Long Island. That's a whole story for another day because the creator was a Long Island guy, et cetera, et cetera and blah blah blah. But anyway, here we are. I'm doing that now. It's amazing what you can pick up. So maybe some black kid will see the black one the years. Produced by Don Cheadle and he'll think, well, I can do that too, and, you know, it could be great, but I Jesus Christ. Don't we already, don't they have their black?

It's very like morgan freeman right. I think it's doctor. That appears like two minutes from now. I think it's the same The voices sounded. Maybe the same. It's meant to be like morgan freeman.

Thanks so much for being with us, Scott. It's an absolute pleasure. Thanks for having me so people you follow in the hospital, the medical personnel Seemed to want to tell the world about their world. Yeah, You know, Scott, One of the things that surprised me the most about during this project was that fact just how we were given complete and almost unadulterated access to every moment. They needed people to know that their own Children were dying for lack of food on Lee by other people, knowing especially sort of the broader World Would it change be possible and
"narration" Discussed on Mr Barton Maths Podcast
"This particular solution to general principles. Yes imagine for a second a diagram. I think wrinkles rapids diagram. Remember the like this particular solution and you've got this other particular problem. And how are they connected. Put a big question mark between them. It's you can't connect particular particulars soon generalization. Yes if they're different in any way and they always are so. The south explanation can do as can help you take this particular explanation which you understand connected to general principles which are that applicable to other particulars so That is something. I think about a lot. When i'm writing self explanation prompts that there are chewed distinct purposes. I think i said this at some point ali. I don't remember as long conversation. But i was in quarantine at the time like not not the quarantine that we talk about where it's like. Oh i can't go to restaurants. I call that renewed. I mean i mean we. Kobe positive person in our household so anyway but That's my excuse for not remember but by over. Point is that That's another thing that self explanation prompts can. They can help in the very least. There's two purposes for self explanation prompts. They can help people notice things that would otherwise skip over. They can help connect these particular mathematical symbols solutions to general principles that are generally applicable and That second purpose shouldn't happen right away. I don't think. I think you want to make sure you understand the particulars before you generalize This is interesting so again. I think we may disagree a little bit. He i completely agree with the The types of self explanation. I i to my sheets to be able to generalize so my logic for putting the self explanation prompts in stage. Two narration is because what's coming next stage three which i will read the maths which i got for which i admit from you when you first when you on the show a couple years back. Can you describe to me this. This notion that you want students to read mathematical solutions like they would read a power. Ruffin english off alaska's beautiful. I really liked that. So i have the stage nex. West unions just have a bit of time on their own. Just reading the solution looking at those self explanation prompts but then they have the opportunity to discuss with the person next to them. What the answers to those south facts nation are so i would rather the prompts. That's a focus. Their attention to sat up the discussion as opposed to have the discussion. I followed by the prompts. But again i don't think it matters too much but that's that's my way of. I want to direct attention first so that students can have a more informed discussion as opposed to. I think this proper failing my teaching you have students you to discuss the worked example. Explain it to each other. I think lawsuit struggle with that whereas the self explanation prompts can really guide those discussions that that's my logic anyway. Yeah if i. If i i see that i don't give kids a ton of time to discuss the simple. I moved quickly there that works. It works especially works better with older students. Yes i find out and maybe maybe for younger students. I would be more inclined to use more. Do you notice this prompts. The ones that could guide them through. Yes lincolnshire they notice. Everything in the work is ample. I should be clear. I'm not asking. I usually ask students to continue talking to their partners about the deeper questions. Also yes yes only I agree that those are rich conversational things. I like when kids discuss reasons. And i guess that's that's that's a good time for that and it's a set up to succeed in that process instead of just kind of like. Why do you think this obsolete. So so it's interesting we do have seemingly the same concerns the same pieces but they're just a little bit off kilter. It's yeah. Yeah it's interesting and would you just to kind of wrap up this story. 'cause i'm the i'm fascinating you take on this. So after silent generation read the moths. My next pau is your turn so the related related problem and you may know i construction in a way. That's i buy board or the sheets. Listen to three so you got what example on the left self explanation prompts down the middle and then the related problem the alternate on the right so students can kind of compare and contrast across. But his thing. I've been thinking about a lot recently. Particular with remote teaching at stage five stage five which i call show coal to borrow doklam offs term and this is where essentially i showcase students work. Both students who've made a mistake in the alter that i think's an interesting misconception. An interesting thing to discuss. But also where is the kind of climax at the white example where i will showcase an example of excellence so student who set the. You'll turn out beautifully. Everything's great bible to the visualize or whatever it may be an streams can essentially use that tomorrow by work and crack on with some some practice. Now what's been interesting is that whilst then kind of remote learnings been hounded. Obviously it's been a lot more difficult to see. The students work what they've been doing. You'll turn and obviously there's lots of kind of shed whiteboard platforms that people using white ball data or whether it's google docs google slides people coming up with ways of doing it because a lot more difficult than it is just wandering around in the classroom grabbing a mini white board. And so so what. I've been thinking about with the climax to the words example..
"narration" Discussed on Dear Writer
"Starting before they released it and then once they released an different strategies they used and how it helped what ones worked. And what didn't work. Which i found quite interesting There were a lot of helpful episodes that i listened to as i have said before. I don't really listen to them. In order i kind of just look through. The lesson decided. I felt listening to at the time. So they're very jump around from all different different times definitely understandable. Yeah i used to do that with with the creative pan but then i ended up discovering that even the ones that i didn't think that i was going to gel with or like that's not real relevant. Yeah they head pieces in it. That i was actually quite interested so now i'm just doing it all in order but i totally understand jumping around because you know you only have so much time. Yeah and there's so much out there. You never know what you're going to if you're going to like podcast or not right. Yes yes. i've listened to a few episodes couple that i found really helpful where The golden age of independent publishing and also a very some in a similar vein state of independent publishing in twenty twenty. Those are really helpful because they were very relevant talking about right now what self publishing because a lot of resources you find are bit oda or not up to date or you know the so. That was really interesting. And they also were postulating where indie publishing was going to go in the future. And an interesting point that they were making was obviously. We want to self publish. So we know a lot about it but the number of people that are like us actually know that self publishing exists is really small and same with people who buy self published books to like a lot of people don't even realize that their self published or whatever well because it's to such a professional standard these that as a bia- yours get these covers it a professionally. Designed by south publishes so you may not necessarily know the difference between unless you specifically look it up right. Yeah exactly and i guess if you carry on from that. This should a large proportion of the world. One that is even unaware of e books to start with or very limited access to e. books at all so it was sorta about once these people become aware of it. How much room to grow. The field has so. I found that really really interesting. Very thought provoking. Yeah there's definitely a lot of areas in the world. Like i think india is a big one. That's a market. That's supposedly going to grow to an extent. I think without it depends on the specific roles. Yeah yeah it depends on that but yeah this laboring for growth in the future diff- and even my friends and people that i know that still like i'm not so sure about e books or is it still there's not a lot of people that even actively read them that makes me. What are your books. Audiobooks has been growing hugely last little while like personally. I don't listen to audio books. Because i thought i don't like the narration. I find it really hard to john. Whittled the voices although that and saying that in the future sort of one of the that's being exploited as set whether you could select like with development whether you could select specific accent from which might make it more palatable to you yet i find that it alters the way that i like i usually read it differently in so if i'm listening to it i don't take it as seriously. I don't get quite as involved in the book because this narration going on my air. That makes me laugh..

Taking Care of Mama after a Baby
"No matter how many children you have had their you've adopted or how to surrogate adding another person to your family is an incredible experience and it affects everyone in the household not just for a few days or weeks but in our home we're coming on almost two years with our fourth child which i believe but it feels like we're just really all settling in took a while to integrate the more the more people who are here it took longer to bring forth little one in and my first suggestion is to listen to momma. She knows best. You are the one who will have the inspiration for what you need to take care of yourself and you can get really hard to listen to yourself. I work with a life. Coach named natalie clay and she recommends that you listen to the self chatter. It's kind of a behind the scenes. Talk that narration in your head. That's going on throughout the day. So listening to momma after having a baby is listening to the narrated that you're tying yourself. Are you telling yourself that you or your partner should have specific roles in the postpartum journey. So you might be thinking your head like why. Isn't he getting up in the night. Or why is he getting up in the night. Does he think i can't do this. Are you doing yourself that you should be producing milk or breastfeeding in a certain way Are you telling yourself that your body should be healing a certain rate like. Why isn't my c section scar closing up war. Why am i not wearing jeans with a button on them. You know i. I have more energy to nice. Should be back to my regular life by now type of right. Maybe you're thinking other people are thinking about you a specific way. Typically they're not. My dad always says something. If you knew how little other people were thinking about you you would stop thinking about what they're thinking about you because they're so busy thinking about themselves so true the most humbly thing but i just wanted to give an example. I remembered for my first delivery. So i had my first baby and i was gonna deliver with a midwife and i was going to be so hippie with no epidurals. I'm an all natural mama. And then the baby came and i would never dilate after days of contractions so i got a in and that i still never dilated. And so then they gave me daryl and then babies still wouldn't come out so eventually they rip out with forceps and i was like left with a gaping hole in the bottom of my private and it was a horrible horrible description. I'm sorry i parts but that was also a horrible first delivery and like it was weeks and months of pain. Am i had a family member call in. Invite me to a party in extended family member she said. Oh hey can you bring something. And i was trying to like advocate for myself. You know until. I was like hey i don't know if i feel ready to bring something really something the matter. She was being sincere. And i said will i'm still i'm still healy. And she said from what and she had multiple children and had never had the experience like me so here. I am in a situation where i for. Good reason could stop there and think. Oh she is telling me that. I am being dramatic and that i should still be healing. Will she wasn't doing that right. So not self chatter started right than in my mind but what we can do is we can stop right then and check in with yourself and say hey. What am i telling myself about this situation. Am i allowing myself the time and the ability to have a different experience than someone else. Yes you know what. I think is interesting specifically about childbirth. Is that because so many people have done it and are doing it all the time. Sometimes we can minimize our own experience in. just think. Well all women do this all the time. I should be able to just bounce back. I'm a wimp or we can even do it to each other like well. I've had a baby too. And i didn't take that long to recover and we can sort of start to minimize each other's experience when really we just need to realize that every time this happens it is a miracle and it is a trauma to our bodies and every woman is going to experience it differently and that way we can sort of have our own back and say. It's okay that i'm healing at a slower rate than my friend but that we can also have each other's back and just say you take as much time as you need because this is hard stuff we do as women. It may be that women are doing it every single day. But that is it's hard stuff we're doing every single day as
Apps to Make This Valentine's Day Your Best One Yet
"Friend and colleague mark saltzman tier and he has some recommendations to have technology. Help solve this. Valentine's day dilemma. Hey jen thanks for having me back on the show so you have a recent column that is appearing on tech dot usa today dot com about valentine's day. What did you find out you know. I know it's a dated expression that there's an app for that but there are so many apps that can help you prep and celebrate valentine's day for this weekend and that includes when you've got a partner already and you just want to spice up the weekend or if you're in search for one so part of the app ground up which we're not going to get to right now is a look at some dating apps like okay. Cupid and what they found with their members that a lot more open to long distance relationships in virtual dating as you might expect to keep up with the times at least to start which which i think is interesting. I wouldn't want to be single during a pandemic. So i feel for those looking for love at the wrong time but the app said i looked at include of course flour so there's a lot of different apps that you can use. Pro flowers for ios and android is one of the more popular because their prices aren't crazy. We all know you pay through the nose for flowers especially around this time of year including delivery and they throw in like a vase or vase depending on where you're listening to this or a pot if you decide to order a plant they throw that in and there's a lot to choose from and you just put in your zip code and they'll tell you how quickly can get teased. May not be too late if you're listening to this before february fourteenth but a good app to your phone anyways because you can be anywhere and within a couple of tops order something to your significant other and it doesn't have to be just valentine's day so pro flowers was one that i recommended acknowledging that we may not be going to restaurants this valentine's day to clink glasses over a restaurant table. You may be ordering in so at least you don't have to cook with services like uber eats and other food delivery services so suggesting to give that one a spin. Your mate may not love getting you know. Pop is or burger king. c may want to look for nicer option not to slam any potential sponsors of talking tech. But you know if you're going to cork some wine you'll you'll you'll even see where the driver is on their way so you can time everything and of course contactless delivery in twenty twenty. One is good. They've got your credit card information on file so they'll just leave it on the step. Notify you when it's available so those were a couple and then one more is to create a sentimental slide show with photo's as as a nice sort of virtual valentine's day card better than something you could buy at retail i'd argue and there are a lot of different apps that will take your photos and videos and auto magically make a slide show for you including narration if you want to add it or a lot music and i'm referring to one actually in the article called quick without the sea so q. u. i k. it's actually owned by gopro and it's a free download for android and it. Lets you select the photos and videos or you can let it do. Its thing and it will create a sentimental slide. Show for you as set to music. There's one hundred and free songs included or you can add your own music if you like and then send it to your a partner or you can do it privately or posted to social media. So that's that's great. Because it does a lot of the heavy lifting for you and exports it in ten eighty quality with sixty frames per second buttery smoothness so those are a couple of apps that i thought were great for valentine's day.

And if you want more information that and some great names you can. Google look it up.

Stop just for the fact that we were borrowing stocks than stelling those stocks and buying those stocks again when they were cheaper and returning who's borrows. Docs how dare the poor's short just like our hope. Just like myrtle there at the end right off all right so we have carte blanche to fucking tear apart this book and make it better than.
Trump fires nation's top election security official who disputed fraud claims
"A town were. Disagreement is par for the course. Today there was one thing that almost all of washington could agree on namely that the government's top election security cyber cyber security official. Chris crabs did a great job protecting our democracy and did not deserve to be fired. Chris crabs was dismissed last night via presidential tweet after he repeatedly pushed back on trump's claims of election fraud and after his agency refused white house. Requests to edit or remove informational accurate content which was pushing back against trump's false election claims most notably krebs cybersecurity and infrastructure. Security agency cisa. It's a unit within the department of homeland security last week called the november third election quote the most secure in american history adding that there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes changed votes or was in any way compromised and quote democrats today reacted to krebs firing with predictable outrage but notably they were joined by many republicans including some of the president's most ardent defenders in congress to presents variety to the confusion entails. I'm sure i'm not the only one that we'd like. Return to more of a lot on what's normally of course. Well chris krebs is rightfully earning plaudits in an enhanced reputation for a job. Well done and for standing up to this president. This lack of normalcy is likely to continue for the remaining nine weeks left to go in this administration. We all need a way to get through it. So i'm happy to give you one. I'm happy say the joining us now to discuss this story and others is someone who obviously needs no introduction on this show or anywhere else the inestimable. Rachel meadow rachel. It is so great to see you here. I'm going to ask you the first question on behalf of all of your viewers how are you. I am great valley and let me just start by saying how thankful i am to you for doing for stepping in for me on zero notice and doing this at length. You've just been fantastic and my staff loves working with you and you just. I've been watching every night and you guys are doing an amazing job and so i am grateful to you for making it possible for me to be important which is Which has been a trip. But i'm i'm fine. I have continued to test negative through this whole thing. Which means that. I'm getting close to the end of my quarantine period. I will hopefully think potentially be back hosting either tomorrow night or the night after in which case i will have more to say about where i been in what i've been doing and what it's been like. I definitely have some stuff to say about that. And i want to let people know what's been going on but bottom line is i'm grateful to you and i'm finding i will be back in something that looks like your chair pretty said well you come in the time that is needed for you to come and as i remind our viewers all the time This continues to be your staff who put the show together and it has your dna and it's so we're we're glad for that. I want to ask you about this topic. We were just talking about chris. Crabs a man who was responsible for trying to keep at least outside interference and cyber interference out of our election. He told people last week he thought he was going to get fired and then last night in typical fashion. He got fired by tweet for doing his job. The president directly contradicted him saying he was wrong about what he said. This election was not safe. Votes were changed votes that were cast for trump became biden votes and chris. Krebs is now no longer there. What do you make of this. I a couple of things i mean. In terms of krebs himself. I feel like it's worth reflecting. On the fact that i don't know that there is anybody else who has served particularly at a high level in the trump administration who has come out of it not just with an enhanced reputation for having done a job very well and done right by the country and taking something. That was very very difficult. That other people have had a really hard time with and sort of nailing it doing it well but also leaving not just with his badge of honor of being fired by the president for having done his job well leaving without having compromised himself without having bit his tongue without having kowtowed to the president or compromised himself in any way that was trying to either stave off himself being fired or trying not to rock the boat or trying to go along to get along. Which so many good people have fallen prey to because that's the way the president manipulates people gets what he wants and so i think chris crabs is being lauded justifiably by people on all sides of the ideological spectrum and all levels of government for having done a really good job but he also really in some ways stands alone in terms of having done well and done right and not having bent himself to the vagaries of this president. I think that's really important. I will also say the alley. That i think there's an institutional thing to watch out for. Because part of the reason we started talking about crabs potentially being fired last week was when a divisional chief at cisa got fired. Then krebs himself got fired. His deputy also got fired. What's happened is this agency has been decapitated and that has a couple of risks. One is that this is a dozen just work on election security. They are responsible for example for protecting vaccine. Researchers from what appears to be a robust international malign effort to interfere with and steal vaccine data by actors like potentially north korea iran russia That's really important. We reported in recent weeks on hospitals being hit with ransomware attacks russian-speaking gangs from the former soviet union hitting us hospitals in the middle of this pandemic with ransomware attacks and locking their computer systems. That's also with instances remain. We need an agency. That's good at that stuff but also in terms of the election. i mean the there are still being counted. There are recounts happening. there are certification. Tallies that are coming up and people including senators on the intelligence committee have warned that this is one of the times when we are quite vulnerable to disinformation and potentially foreign interference. Somebody might target the understanding of the american people to try to confuse us an upset us and muddied the result of the election now as it is being finalized and finally tabulated and so two houses a plan so well not just to have him ousted but to have all the whole upper echelons of the agency taken out for these reasons at this time is very dangerous for lots of different reasons. And i'm i'm very very uncomfortable with not just what this means for but what the implications are for our national security one of the reasons i would like you back is because rather than doing it myself. I'd like to hear your narration of this legal clown car. That is driving around the united states stopping michigan last night with the board of canvassers in wayne. County not agreeing to certify detroit's election results than fifteen million three hours later after getting pressure decided to do so. Rudy giuliani walking into a court. Case after twenty eight years Walk into a courtroom in philadelphia not really understanding the law very well. Republicans putting pressure on the secretary of state of georgia. It is a bit of a clown car but they are doing stuff to stop this election from being certified and to stop the administration from taking the reins and getting their transition moving. Yeah that's right. And i think you had really interesting conversation. Stacey abrams about this earlier in the hour alley. And i. I think that one thing. That's that's interesting that we can see at work is what you were talking about with her about the secretary of state and georgia the republican secretary of state who's absolutely been involved in contentious voting rights disputes with voting rights advocates like abrahams with democrats in georgia but his emerging here as a sort of normal republican and not a trump republican in the sense that he's not exactly a champion of voting rights in georgia georgia's had all these troubles but he's also not willing to go along with the insanity of the trump republican claims that the georgia election should be thrown out because of some magic dust that they've imagined they can cast over those election results so i do think that this is accelerating in some small ways with republican elections officials whether it's local commissioners in pennsylvania or the secretary of state in georgia or other people who are just sort of you know regular elected officials who are responsible for election integrity finding themselves affronted by the president and his legal team are trying to do in a way that i think maybe is giving us a little bit of a peak had a post trump republican party or at least where the schism might be between trump and and republicanism as we move forward.
Political Demonization is Solvable (again)
"A few years ago identified what you felt to be very deep problem in your country. can you describe what it is and how did you I recognize it? So actually goes back to well by data I nearly. Ninety, two there was a vote on Switzerland joining or not joining European commercial area or economic European. Economic. The and the Swiss refused that, and that was actually the starting point of an. Incredible career of a party called the Swiss People's Party. Here which is which happened to turn from really Conservative Party into a rather writing populist parties well and Chris blowhole. He's the leader, the the well-known like personality of this party. There's a saying that he get has tailor made suits, but which actually don't really faith on the shoulder. So he would pretend to be one of you know the people but actually a billionaire, he's super-rich one of the richest people in Switzerland. He runs this party anti finances this party mostly, and so that was basically the start of this career of the party. So the problem you identified is the problem. Of Swiss, populism you identified a particular event and it was the referendum on mass migration. Can you explain would what's the significance of referendums in Switzerland and why this one in particular effective the NFL pay came up with a will be called an popular initiative, which is a therapy democratic proposal to the Swiss people that we voted on, and that means that you a needs to collect one hundred, thousand signatures at on a specific hem nego text, which thin if it is accepted is being introduced into our Constitution. So such as some law, you know it's changing. Our Constitution. So the writing populist as well as other parties misused the tool today as a marketing tool for issues they come up with this at just right before elections. So they can compaign on a specific issue, but originally disrupt was given to minorities which would never be represented in parliament and through this initiative, they could introduce law and come up with issues which matter to them, and so that particular event was in February two, thousand fourteen voted on the so-called mass immigration initiative already from the name, you can see that it comes up, it brings up a certain framing and yes, pay wanted to. Limit the number of people coming to Switzerland in the free movement of people agreements that we have with the European Union Switzerland is not member of the your opinion, but we have but a treatise and visit they're just too many people come to Switzerland every year and they one. Yeah. By really close marching of fifty point three percent it was only twenty thousand votes which made a difference, and so you said to yourself, how do we stop this and then you went through a process of trying to think how how do we push back against this kind of language get the thing was we didn't actually. Themselves, in the country that we grew up in because we we saw Switzerland as a you know cosmopolitan international country, a open and so on and we nobody expected this to happen. It was like our brexit moment. You know we said, okay, that's not the country that we want to live in. We want to change this. We won't have a brighter future and the brighter vision for what Switzerland's can be, but the populist argument had already infected all the other parties in other words everybody began saying in Switzerland well, actually maybe it's true. Maybe they're too many people here. Maybe we need stronger borders maybe we need greater sovereignty. So how do you? How do you push back against that kind of? This change of social mood. Basically, what will be so is that we want to promote. Switzerland regarding the future we said Switzerland is the land of Opportunity of the twenty first century. We're not the kind of open air museum where nothing should ever change and that's also the country wants to live in in two thousand fifty. We've actually looking forward to the two thousand fifteen so in so you began reframing. The conversation but actually use you said to me earlier you you thought I about creating a political party and then you decided that wasn't the way to go. Right. So for us I mean, of course, we're super disappointed about all the other party if it just overtook the narration of the hoppy of there are too many people in our trains too many people renting apartments here I thought okay, we have to. Make a new party because we don't cannot identify with any other. We don't have a political home. But then we realized that the Indus was political system. It doesn't make sense to create a new party, but instead, we decided to create an over partisan movement. Actually goes against this tendency of polarization, but we wanted to unite the progressive liberal minds in this country, and also we wanted to link US somehow back to the tradition of eighteen, forty eight, which is the foundation of the liberal state of Switzerland, and we we introduced ourselves with our manifesto as children of eighteen, forty eight. So trying to link these liberal ideas back to the past. So they're part of Swiss history and they don't seem like some kind of foreign import no absolutely and even more it was a vedic patriotic but emancipated. Patriotic Understanding of where we come from the founding fathers of our country for deliverables in eighteen, forty eight, and we totally identified with their mindset of what it means to be a modern Switzerland.

A Look at Jennie Livingston's 1990 documentary Paris is Burning
"Hello and welcome to Queer as fiction we talk about Queer historical media I'm Jason and I may lie and today we're talking about Jenny. Livingston's nineteen ninety. Documentary. Paris's Bang. Before we start, we have a few called him warnings to this episode. This episode contains mentions of Racism Transphobia Homophobia the AIDS epidemic murder and family rejection. It also contains the use of outdated language surefooted by Queer people on people, call it in courts. If any of that sounds like something, you don't want to listen to please feel free to check out one of. Our other episodes. So I wanted to stop this episode by explaining what is Paris's banning because I feel like a lot of listeners probably a pretty good understanding of this documentary. Some very young listeners may not have seen it. I said Hanson had you seen it before we researched this ups lot no but I had a pirated version of a hard drive for decades. I love with things and have adhd. reasonable. So I was aware of it but I hadn't actually seen it. Yeah. I think I heard the name but didn't know what it was. So Paris is burning is a documentary about the bowl culture scene of New York in the nineteen eighties prominently featuring the African American and Latin American members of that community many among gay and or trans. It documents how they lives intersect with the Bulls the form, the Bulls tight and contains several interviews, participants, explaining concepts, such shade, realness reading, and legendary woods that may be familiar to a modern audience given how by propagated in popular drag culture. Yeah on TIKTOK. The documentary features no narration and very little dialogue from the interview wide lesbian filmmaker. Jenny. Livingston prominent members of several houses in the scene featured including pepple of Asia during Corey Angie Extravaganza and Willi? Ninja. I'll make a nerd here on pronounce while several of the performance featured in Paris boning. Ambiguously Trans Women and so I'm GonNa to share pronounced where I don't have specific evidence I. Do want to note that pepple of Asia describes himself in the documentary is not being woman not understanding the experience of womanhood and being on In a sex change however, her two thousand and three obituary in the new. York. Times describes her as preferring in pronounce ongoing with that as the more recent source compared to this documentary which was filmed in the eighties. So having talked about what Paris has been is I want to I going to kind of how was made so as described by Academic Lucas, Hildebrand in his twenty thirteen book quit film classics Piracy's Boning, which was a major source when I was researching this episode Livingston was taking a film production class at NEOCON. INVESTI windshield observed three young men voguish in Washington. Square Park after asking what they were doing she was invited to an upcoming bowl and soon thereafter began documenting the scene via black and white photographs and audio interviews which were kind of the mediums in which she worked at the time. She was really documentary filmmaker. This was her first data and she since gone on to make several more films which obviously less notable. Because I don't know what they. Yeah. That's pretty wild. Are they on like queer things. Yeah I, believe her I think there's like Queer Antenna. Seems to many of her films. So yeah, it was only the light of that. She began filming the balls and coming up with the idea of turning these into a documentary. Film took seven years to make in no small pod Judah. The struggles Livingston had funding its production. She initially intended it to be appealing observational documentary just kind of following the lives of the Queen's involved in the same but lacked the funding to shoot the endless hours of footage that would be required for such a production. I'm not really an expert on how documentary films of made. Films something like seventy or eighty hours of footage as it is. So like, wow, that must have been. Lot of what is required for something without the kind of caught away stained. Interesting to think about funding a project like this in like post the iphone world. Because there's like a very like obviously a useless modern. Just, film it like whistle the money going yeah. It's like it's interesting. She talks about the various ways in which the film was funded was funded by a bunch of different organization. Thirteen. Different organizations contributed funding including the baby say. And she stalked interviews about how? It's the late eighties you conscious show someone from the BBC your footage you have to fly someone out from. England oh. Wow. Yeah. My Gosh and show them a physical film real. So is that indicative of a certain level of like promises project was seen to have if she was able to show it to someone like that or did this happen quite routinely it was just logistically difficult Y-. Oh. Yeah. So instead of a purely observational documentary, the earlier interviews that she'd recorded were bought back and more interviews were conducted. Most notably interviews conducted in one thousand, nine, hundred, nine broad sense of narrative to the film by depicting the commercial success of Willi Ninja, as well as the tragic murder of Vance Extravaganza young star in the bowl seen who features prominently throughout the Documentary Livingston has self describes the film making process as followers. Suddenly, the people I filmed worked with me in pop because I represented a chance to speak out to be in front of a camera to show off I, consider Paris burning collaboration on the deepest level, the people who. Are Articulate funny poised while the editor and I made coherent full that we saw the documentary was truly written by the bowl people themselves I use that quite because questions of narrative agency consent and understanding of the nature of the documentaries production became deeply controversial upon the film's release and will form a pot about lighter discussion. But before we get into that, I wanted to do a bit

Disability and Diet Culture with Rebekah Taussig
"So tell me about your relationship with food growing up. Well, I grew up in a family of six kids. I'm the youngest of six kids and the three girls in our family, and some of my earliest memories with food would be sitting around the dinner table. We were always forced to finish everything on our plate that was kind of one of the rules and I was always the last one to leave. It would take me forever because I hated canned fruit and HAM and. I hated actually I really doesn't like a lot of the food that we eat growing up, but I would always be the last wanNA delete the table. So my dad would read a page of a book to me in that I'd have to take another bite in the needed read another page I've had to take another right do that for like an hour and a half so I think my earliest association in. In that sense was less about enjoyment or less about hunger. Neither of those things really factor in it was more like fitting into family structure and that make sense. There's like six of us right and so it was sort of necessity I. think this is our eating time and we ended early tight budget. So Ma made this food for US tonight dad paid burden was like now time to eat. So those are. Really early memories but I think in terms of like developing my larger ideas about eating and how it connected to my body developed a little bit later, surrounding a lot of my mom's ideas about filming entity and what it means to be beautiful and a lot of that was wrapped up in fitness and being really small and being a frail. So she wake up like hearing all of these stories about how tiny. She was in her youth in even as our mother like a lot of stories about her doctors commenting in how thin she was, and she would say all the time. She would say things about how she just doesn't think about food and we would know that she would forget and I say forget in quotes because I'm not really sure what that means to forget to eat that doesn't seem like very human, right? But she would forget to eat and so there was just a lot of obsession or focus on being really small and thin and having people commenting on her body in hurry telling that to US ally and to this day I'm not sure that she's even aware that that's a thing that she did or does it just seem so ingrained in scientists constant stream of narration. So and the youngest and my two older sisters and so I always felt like they kind of fit in line with her desires and expectations or what her girls would be, which is very tiny and small and I too frail and I didn't fit into that and started to notice that right around adolescents like. Middle. School I never forgot to eat like that. We can never going to happen to me I loved always have loved loved loved eating and adolescence I was growing and so I had kind of this an ending appetite and I can remember coming home from school and like I think there was a good month when I would make myself an entire casserole dish of custard and just eat the whole thing and when I got home I was just like that was my tree to end and I was starving when I got home and I would just completely divan so I started to grow quite a bit and I think that was when I started to grow a notice that my Body was just rounder softer than my sisters and then of course, right around that time body, our bodies were attached to male desire. So like you're small, you need to be small and petite and frail to attract male attention, and that was very important. Now, able in, you know the subtle ways that you learn those messages both at home but in every other stories
Advocates For Deaf And Blind Laud Netflix's New Playback Features
"Netflix recently announced it's rolling out a new feature that allows some viewers to stream their favorite shows or films, slower, half speed, say or faster. The feature, which is currently on Ly, available to Android users, adjust voice pitch to make the faster slowed down speed. Sound natural. The idea to criticism from directors like Judd Apatow, who said last fall that platform should leave content as it wass quote intended to be seen. Advocates for the deaf and blind are lauding the new feature, saying It's a win for people who rely on playback options so they can also enjoy the cinematic experience. One of those advocates as ever it bacon. He's a board member of with the National Federation of the Blind, and he joins us from Salt Lake City, Utah. Hello. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. So for those who who dont know for someone who is blind, How do you watch films or TV shows? So we watch films just like anybody else on Ly. We have what's called audio description. Our audio description narration that's going on while the programming is being viewed. And so basically when there is no dialogue between the actors, a narrator comes on and describes what's happening in the scene and what's happening in the the show. So we have an understanding so like they might describe The set What's happening around us? They might give us some gender information or race information about characters, just overall things that help us. Understand and comprehend what the creators were trying Tio portray to the general public. And so how does this new playback feature assist with the viewing experience? Well, blind individuals. Many of us use a screen reading technology on our computers and our phones. And we have learned and adapted over time to speed that up on a regular basis. We've also been listening to audio books for years as a member of the National Federation of the Blind. I've been listening to audio books from the library for the blind for many years, and we've always been able to speed up that process because we're listening all the time and in our our ears that kind of trained over time to listen at a quicker speed and so allowing us to do the same thing on on on a show. Like a documentary or some type of other content. It really helps the whole lot. When when you're trying Tio consume such great content in mass quantity. And why is it so important? You mentioned that you've been doing this in other platforms. Why's it so important on a streaming platform like Netflix? Well, I think it's very important because I'm going to watched a lot of content just like anybody else. And honestly, I've been listening to so many things all of my life that when I listen at regular speed, sometimes it can sound a little slower than it that it should. And And so I might. My years kind of wanted a little bit more faster as a blind individual. Because that's what I've been used to listening to my computer, listening to my phone listening to audio books, so it's only a natural process that I would want the speed to be a bit faster on the streaming content that I'm viewing on Netflix or other platforms. You know, as I mentioned earlier, there are directors actors who have pushed back saying This playback option distorts their art and the way it was intended to be consumed. How would you respond to them? Well, I would say to to someone like Director Judd Apatow, who is a person who I love the the programs that he's put together, and I've watched several of his films, There is so much information that they have put out in their content. That audio description allows me as a blind individual to comprehend and observe on DH two Having that speed feature. It just allows me to do better understand and better comprehend what they were trying to portray in their creation. I love a lot of Judd Apatow's work and I think if he understood me is a blind individual and how I consume content, he would be applaud this new feature by Netflix
