"A friend were kayaking in Northern California's Monterey bay. Suddenly a humpback whale three times the size of a double decker bus leaped out of the water in front of them. It hovered for a moment and then crashed into the sea. Here sound from a bystander's video The kayak was pulled underwater as well. Tom and his friend Charlotte desperately trying to get back to the surface and when they did they were shocked to realize they were both alive. The whale had landed on the kayak, but barely missed them. His brush with death launched Tom mussels journey to find out more about these magnificent animals, and the result is a new book called how to speak whale. Tom, welcome to here and now. Thank you very much for having me. And look, I know you have told this story so many times by now, but what was that moment like when you see the whale coming out of the water and you know it's about to land right on top of you? I can visualize it now. I just remember it, it was very straightforward. I just thought, oh, there's a whale in the air above me and it's going to land on me and that means I'm going to die now. In the remarkable thing is, you didn't die. So what happened next? As the whale came down onto me and Charlotte in the kayak, I flipped the kayak over and then I think just waited for the impact of the whale on my body because the last thing I'd seen it was coming directly towards me and was just going to land straight on us. But it didn't and neither of us were killed or even injured at all and I couldn't make sense of that and then symbologist looked at the footage and one in particular professor joy rig. She studies the body movements of Wales. And she said that the whale changed its course in midair and avoided us and she felt that it was trying to not hit us. Well, what do you make of that interpretation then? Do you think there was some sort of, I don't know if communication is the right word, but some sort of human whale interaction that was happening in that flash of a moment. As a biologist by background and as a filmmaker who's taught to not project human characteristics onto other species, all my training said, no, it was just an accident and there was no thinking behind it. But in the course of researching the book, I learned some things that have made me reconsider that initial response. One is that they are incredibly sophisticated in the structure of their brains, which leads us to think they have advanced cognition. And there's this other thing which is that a humpback whales will go out of their way to stop other whales, dolphins, seals, and sometimes even giant ocean sunfish, getting hurt, specifically being hunted by killer whales. So you're saying that the humpback would stop a sunfish from getting hunted by an orca, or something like that. It sounds extraordinary, but this has been recorded again and again. There are examples of whales having associations like different cetaceans wells and dolphins with different species, like friendships, you could potentially say like social interactions that last a long time traveling together feeding together playing together. So they seem to have inverted commas friendships across species. They seem to care about what happens to other species to the extent that they'll change their actions in their own lives. So there's clearly something going on here. You had this near death experience, which sets you on the path to find some answers, right? And one of the first people to bring whale sounds or vocalizations to the public was roger Payne. In 1970, he released a hugely influential album of
Weekend weather concerns Northern California firefighters

DeSantis flies two planes of migrants to Marthas Vineyard; Karine Jean
"Brandon Tatum is a 7 year veteran of the Tucson police department. He's a YouTube sensation with 1.9 million subscribers. He started blacks up with Candace Owens and now he's tackling his biggest assignment yet. This is the officer Tatum show. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to the officer Tatum show. I got so much to talk about. Today I want to hit on a few pointers. When it comes to Ron DeSantis, governor Abbott sending illegal aliens to Martha's Vineyard and some of these liberal self proclaimed sanctuary states. Now, if you've been watching the news or paying attention at all, you will realize that there were illegal aliens who were sent to Martha's Vineyard. Now, if you don't know what Martha's venue is, just imagine a place where all the wealthy people have their guesthouses and or vacation homes and Obama lived there. I'm sure Oprah Winfrey got a house there. All of these mega millionaires and billionaires have property at Martha's Vineyard. I would argue that it's an exclusive location where only wealthy people reside. Now I'm not going to lie and say I don't know people that live in Martha's Vineyard. I at least know one person that has a house in Martha's Vineyard that they don't even live at most of the time. So you can imagine that they are a billionaire. However, the ploy by desantis and governor Abbott sending some of these illegal aliens to multiple locations, I think, is petty, but I'm here for the pettiness. The only way that these people are going to get a taste of their own medicine is when we start being just as pity as they're being. I find it quite interesting. That they cry from the mountaintop. We need to, we need to have immigrants. Republicans are racist. They don't care about people. These people just looking for opportunities. And then when the opportunities are presented to be provided for by them, now it's a crisis. People in Martha's Vineyard network and you probably have to at least be worth several $1 million to even have a place in Martha's Vineyard. Remember all the stuff people are talking I don't let them in the border. No, no, no, let them stay in your vacation home. You're 15,000 square foot vacation home that you only visit for three months out of the year. How about you let their legals alien stay there? Remember when you were talking all that trash about president Donald Trump saying he's a racist for not wanting people to come over here. Oh, now it's in your backyard now you are concerned. See, because I think it's not fair that the ones who are advocating for open borders the most are not affected the most by open border policy. If you look at it, you say, I mean it does illegal aliens coming through Texas coming through California. Coming through Arizona, many of them ended up in Florida. What are the chances that they're going to make it up to Chicago? What are the chances that they're going to make it up to Northern California? Some of these places, they're going to settle in a place that's closest and most conducive for them to settle in. And you know who's going to take the burden of those issues, the taxpayer. Where do you think these people go to school? When they bring their kids over here, where do you think they go to school? They ain't homeschooling them. They're going to school with your kids. And then when the teachers aren't getting paid enough and they're burdened to the bone, why do you think that's the case? Because we got an influx of people in our country that don't belong here. And we really don't have the resources to take care of them. Man, you think they're not bumping and grinding and pumping and sweating. They haven't kids too. And they having a lot of kids. You think they weren't contraceptive. You think they may not say that other word. You think they're doing the Afghanistan like Joe Biden? They probably are, because. They did. They may not say it. Y'all know what I'm talking about. They're removal game is on trash mode. So I bet you a $1 million they're having a lot of kids. And where do you think they go? When they're giving birth to children, they go to the hospital. And your insurance, or if you don't have insurance, you paid out of pocket for the birth of your child and your second child in your third child. On their 7th kid, who do you think is paying for it? They don't have a job, many of them, they don't have jobs, they don't have a social security number. They can't get a wicked work anywhere. A lot of them are working under the table. They don't have insurance. But that pregnancy that high risk pregnancy is 40, $50,000. Who is paying for it? Okay. I'm just wondering where you're paying attention. Are you awake? And I'm not saying in any form of fashion that we should be mean to people. And we should hate people. How dare you want to be in America? I understand why you want to be in America. However, we can't just let everybody come into America. We can't just let everybody do it. Let me just give you an example. I gave this example at a university that I was speaking at. And I said, you pay

The holiday travel crush is on with Americans flying in numbers that we haven't seen since before the pandemic. There have been hundreds of delays and cancellations, as for those who hit the road.

"The death toll from the McKinney fire burning in Northern California has now risen to four, with authorities warning that number could still go up. Much of the tiny town of klamath river, which is near the Oregon border, has reportedly burned. And pierce Kirk siegler reports that this is one of several fires burning out of control in the west, which has again been baking in record heat. The McKinney fire so far, California's largest and deadliest wildfire this year has now burned close to 90 square miles of dry, overgrown forests since it ignited Friday, but there is finally some good news humidity and rain. Fire behavior analyst, Dennis burns, says storms dumped three inches over at least parts of the fire last night. But other parts of the fire got no rain whatsoever. We're going into a warmer drier period, so we expect to see the activity increase pretty significantly today through tomorrow. He means more dreaded red flag warnings for extreme fire danger through at least tomorrow. That's the story across this drought stricken region from here on the West Coast to the great plains where Prairie fires have ignited in Wyoming and burned homes in Nebraska. Climate scientists are again warning that prolonged heat waves like a week of extreme heat recently from Washington state to Montana are more common now with climate change. Well, just a triple digits, you know, 100° plus that's not a good recipe. CT camel is a fire prevention officer with the confederated salish and kootenai tribes in Montana, they're the Elmo fire, has been burning out of control and threatening homes and closing roads along flathead Lake at the height of tourist season. Camel says his crews can't catch a break because these modern wildfires no longer lay down at night. It's still hot. It's always been a go, go, go, type job, but you know, when the fires are getting bigger, quicker because of the wind because of the flashy fuels in the heat. You know, it does take its toll on some of the firefighters. Firefighters already in short supply due to labor shortages are exhausted. And with these erratic fires burning so hot, they create their own weather, the conditions often just aren't safe for cruise to even try to slow down the flames. Retired firefighter Timothy inglesby runs the Oregon based firefighters united for safety, ethics and ecology. It's a group pushing for an overhaul in U.S. fire suppression and prevention policies. Productivity is very low in these really hot and dry. And smokey conditions. Inglesby says mostly cruise can just try to protect homes and lives in the fires path.

After sending some would end during the daytime people with a fireball tour through part of their building they had all the safety procedures in place and they were able to deal with the fire pretty quickly then subtly. They were on the drudge of wondering whether they were going after. Just go under give up because of course waiting for the insurance company to reimburse so they can start rebuilding artists could event so they could start making money and moxie is a really interesting space awesome. Incubator space for small artists entrepreneurs all of the artists occupying students. There were purchasing jointly some really amazing equipment enormous laser cutters. Cnc machines sharing things and subletting up jobbing in subcontracting to each other for commercial work. That was not only bringing money into them bows employing other artists. They were doing a range of projects and it rained. From tech offices to small restaurants to artist fabrications so we approached and even though we were focused on housing and we were told moxie just really needs capital to get through the next ninety days or their history so vital arts through the opportunity loan which recreated raised funds and gave them a short term loan. It helps that one of their founders wolf. Very savvy was able to really meet with evil that were involved with vital arts. Put for the business plan. Explain the economics of their whole thing and how they really train and enable artists to make a living which was very tracked awesome that they were long term proposition minute. Literally the month we gave them the money. Coke hit they at artists having difficulty paying rent. They've been all over but they immediately pivoted to making. Pp got large donation of plastic say brought artists in that knew how to use their advanced laser cutter and all their stuff is started delivering thousands and thousands of face shields hospitals all over the bay area at one point moxie was coordinating seven hundred artists in the bay area and a number of other organizations from laney college sculpture department to toy makers working with groups that were distributing the p. b. e. and became like a hub employed artists. They found ways to raise money employed artists and volunteers and paint people on the line. Creating stuff gay people a sense of purpose away to gathering community to work safely and create something society really need. At that moment. I was just on a site visit with our board there that last week and the exciting thing is because vital arts investment and then getting through that really tough period. Their landlord decided that he could go set of month-to-month he's given them a fifteen year lease they now plans to vastly increase. The number of studios dobrynin giant containers. We saw on site is a wonderful model. they've restructured into three different entities. They now have sort of a firewall between the fabrication and the holding company for the properties. The property can be tended to regardless and they are looking at a much more sustainable much more healthy long-term existence for they could not just and thrive and they've been very clear in saying to us if it wasn't for that cash when we needed it we wouldn't still be here and it's been very awarding work with them for me personally to be able to stay in touch and see just that amazing enormous amount of energy community goodwill and creativity that they put together not only in taking care of the artists that were connected to their space but taking care of the community around them and they're still doing that type of thing and they will go on. They are now talking and working. In collaboration it's premature to announce anything but with other entities In the bay area about creating Housing complex that would be complementary in the same neighborhood and extending their incubator model because they are one of the few arts collectives. I know that's been able to operate in providing artists with employment and Basically mentoring and training and small business and entrepreneurial methods so that's exciting to see. Thank you really wonderful. Story of people using the proverbial pivot survive and find new opportunities. Low serving the community. Which i think is key exactly. I mean seven hundred plastic shields at the time that we needed to must remember making ten thousand of these. Every two weeks out coordinate hundred artists acres but the number the quantity they ended up donating. A thousands of san quentin got to the point where they were able to. It asked out at the black lives matter march for people so they always thought in this lateral way that i think a lot of artists do which is not. Just what's good for us. Good for the system in the community part. I smash such an iron. How 'bout yourself. Average story well that would say closely related to specifically artist housing but by my favorite story what the last eight weeks or so has been. We helped in one of the ways of like how we acquire how to artists communities. How do you acquire property. And how do you preserve their and counter forces that are driving For artists everyone else. And there's a case still twelve weeks ago we've been really involved in helping create a allow last year that nancy skinner champion. Sp that allows anyone. Who's a renter or attendant in a building. That's up to four units. If that building goes into for closure is gonna be auctioned off normally. You're out of luck and this law. Let's you as a tenant when the foreclosure comes you're allowed to match whatever bid there is whether it's the banks or outside investor and keep control of your house the catch is you have forty five days to come up with the cash and so if you're renting somewhere you might not always have six or seven hundred thousand dollars in cash lying around on short notice but that said it's a pretty significant tool and we piloted this. Actually with a ton of people from the arts community the berkeley unified teacher jocelyn foreman. Who's living in a house panel and it went into foreclosure with a bunch of her colleagues in the families that she helps in the school district all came together through the berkeley public schools fund and started raising money to help her make bid on this house and then they brought us in and i mean interestingly it's sort of tied to the arts because many of the people involved made it happen. Are the arts faculty food berkeley. It's to so many overlaps in ozone amazing story where in two weeks we all collectively raised almost seven hundred thousand dollars to get her home and prevent someone who has helped as a community resource officer has helped thousands of families in from losing her own home. It's pretty inspiring story. There is now hopefully soon to be funding so that this can happen. Not just in this. One magical instance where. There's this tremendous community but with state funding and other kinds of funding so that they're in lots of buildings that artist's work in so catherine sort of alluded to the work of doing in berkeley collectively looking at all. The retail vacancies is a huge of rebuilding san pablo university at the retail spaces vacant while the building might not get foreclosed on because the underlying land is so valuable that it can be solved to be torn down undeveloped. There is a need for a tools. We'll bring those buildings back into use s become some nine related funding. It's not just the joscelyn's house. And her corner of people like how the story be a catalyst for every long neighborhood has the same kind of thing where we should be able bring not housing in workspace back into nearly control and it is possible. That's exciting thanks once you do it once even though it's hard you've got a home that you can point to and einstein with you and same question for through so folks who are listening to the show. How can they get engaged in supporting your work. I mean obviously there's donation volunteer would people rallying behind the new piece of legislation. Was skinner to help lobby for city of berkeley city of oakland. I tell you. The city of san francisco has massive amounts of retail space. You've noticed it yourself. How can folks get engaged. Yes well kind of all of those things if you want to donate in. You're able to do so. We take all major forms of modern urgency not bitcoin and not also been a tremendous number of our projects. Have come about through. People doing plan to give kind of long-term donations wear home becomes affordable housing after seven passes away or it gets issues. That's one thing and on the outreach side the legislative piece of ideas in berkeley. You're going through efforts to the arts commission but there is one thing you could do right now. Which is this week. Senators in errors advocating for funding for sp. Ten seventy nine and on the california can meet land trust site. Cac lt network dot org. There's an sp tinson nine letter that you can sign. And since the governor and also since copied a senator senator to let her know that you're in support of our efforts that's that would help. Clt's in housing all right and then can folks volunteer at this point. I mean we're starting to magically. We're going to all come out of this tomorrow. But that's the fifteenth of june can folks who want to volunteer to help in any way as well. Yes we will certainly certainly many different areas that you could volunteer with in. We have a small project committee that helps review projects expertise in building. Construction finance like those are expertise to really. Welcome if you know a lot of teaching. Were filming of co-ownership initiative helps develop curriculum for creating your own cooperatives for community owned real estate of different kinds. We share e be people of color sustainable housing network of other seal tease renovators though the ways you can volunteer as great and turn into you katherine. How can folks get engaged in helping about art at two critical ways. Where jerry tiny. I work we have no staff. I'm an independent consultant. That helps vital arts and very few hours. Sousa volunteer board an advisory committee. So we're going to and build those groups so we are interested in that. What i can say right now is that we are accepting donations. Which make possible time energy and some of the work that we do through the opportunity fund you can learn about that on our website which is www vital arts dot org you can donate and also launched a new mailing list for advocacy purposes. I said we keep a mailing list for starting to be able to develop that as a tool for advocacy working on something we know. For example that the city of oakland is about to unveil new downtown plan which is going to have some critical set-asides for art culture. It reminded need support for some of those ideas because it's going to put requirements on developers that they set aside space for artists and cultural organizations. So we're constantly advocacy political pressure mode secrets on our mailing list. Send us the two nation help with the work is great and volunteering. His specifically on our committees In our ward and we are looking for good candidates for those that can help us well and so this is the final question for both of you. But what do you think are some of the good things that have come out of the pandemic that could support artists artist housing more engagement with arts and arts education. I actually i tend to be a bit not to this anyway. But i think that the arts community has come together through the pandemic in a way that it hasn't been in a long time when it started. I was on weekly meetings with all the nonprofit groups in berkeley for example. Oakland art screws me as a lot. More meetings a lot more could meanings mostly zoo but bringing people together to talk about sharing ideas. So collaboration is starting to be is always was so difficult to do. Between a lot of entities were seeing a lot. More collaboration and a lot more people working together because the bigger height is not between the way. We want to do things where you wanna do. The bigger threat. To the whole thing. That i see is that the value of artists and their contributions has been recognized and made abundantly clear. Georgia's you mentioned earlier the having that whole industry so close and go away. Don't live music no theater. no dance. Snow no art shows. You can go see museums close down. People began to realize how much not really meant to their lives. And a lot of what was keeping people saying through. The pandemic was the arts and wet artists. Were offering them when they're living rooms in whatever form so we saw not only a shift in starting people really recognizing artists were doing but here in the bay area. We've seen artists being on the front line as calling second responders leading a lot of the efforts around things like pb organizing foodbanks organizing community volunteers coming together to help the homeless really pivoting to being on the front lines of working to help us less fortunate with food shelter and other items even as unemployment for artists in the bay area has been anywhere sixty five percent to ninety five percent depending on what community. You're talking to so it's been a rough time. I think our advocacy has gotten stronger. We are all in the position right now. At sacramento level at the city level. Have a new east bay arts advocates group that is advocating for more funding. Coming out his cares act. We did successfully from the federal government. Get some funding to try and help. The arts to covid was bigger than the entire national budget for. The arts usually affect comes from the federal government. So we're starting to slowly get people to recognize and right now. We're making the case that not only the arts needs support for recovery but that the arts are key to the recovery of the economies and the communities that were a part of that we can put open the doors of these arts organizations and put artists back to work. It's putting a lot of money in a lot of other people's pockets as well so i think we're feeling Somewhat optimistic we've got to the state level a pilot proposal for wpa program and really starting to have more serious conversations happening with public officials all over in a way that i haven't seen in a long time so i'm i'm optimistic. That collectively were stronger than we were before college. Even though individually so many people are suffering. Thank you could message in about you. You're on the ground there too and housing as well. So what are some of the good things that have. Come out of this catastrophe echo. What kevin sat around the degree of organizing engagement advocacy back really transformed plus and both on the side of housing and on the side of sustainability clinton justice and more specifically in the arts wearing any of those hats of seeing the scale of impact arts is is like it's impossible. Overstate wearing way. Artists designer at saw one e seven shows answered last april and had to lay off everybody. That's worked on projects in shows and there's been a tremendous loss of young of culture makers that is really concerning sort of. How do we make sure that there is not a lost generation of culture at one time was really inspiring is the there has been own much of coming together. People who were all usually competing for the same little tiny of money. Oh well if you get that show. That means. i didn't get it. This is the moment when we need to actually transform our culture and that is something that the arts and culture community does. That's like how we articulate new vision for a world that is equitable and sustainable and that everybody has access to on footing. And were in a moment where i feel very bit of cautious optimism. That might be possible. Even though i'm on some level in a trade that does not breed optimism so at the same time. You have to have this vision of okay. What does it look like. This is moment where the arts are not simply an instrumental thing. It's not sort of an instrumentality to deliver a particular message. But it's actually about transforming how you'd think and observing what it's and what is actually not that pretty and you need to see a thing before you can repair as we go so that's my hope and my sense is also everyone that i've talked to beyond the arts in the house of the world's rotter world is everybody sees it. That's actually been the benefit of the end is going. Oh my god. This wasn't actually great for you. Know maybe the good old days were so good or they were very good for a very small people. Second best maybe third-best Where we go from here. Let's just kinda get on with it really. i can score with. I realized i'd like to underscore take for granted but as we're talking about rebuilding and building back we're talking about building back better and because things were so drastically altered we do have an opportunity in the arts to create much more equitable and differently operating sector and institutions and relationships between artists public's so it is scary in some ways because there's so much that was laid waste but it's actually a moment of enormous possibility at it's been very exciting to see leadership coming to the fore during this period of thank you catherine and for sharing both vital arts and the northern california community land trusts work today.

"Etc. So i'm going to start with you catherine david story. Actually it doesn't have to do with housing at all. Although it is an organization that is looking at building housing adding housing but it is began working with the group moxie in oakland which is the largest remaining industrial arts space in the bay area for at least in the east bay lot of the really large industrial buildings that housed and people who could make really huge things. Like for bernie man are gone. They've been forced out by cannabis savin purchase. They've been rented or raised property turnover. A moxie is the last remaining one and they were having difficulty. They were serving hundreds of artists around the bay area. Because they had a unique place. Where you could fabricate and make a lot of stuff work with large steel etc and whole ecosystem hardest dependent on the space. They suffered a fire a couple of years ago year and a half ago which wiped out some of their studio space as someone who they sublet to. For a project the some the classic beginner's mistake bagging up some linseed oil. After sending some would end during the daytime people with a fireball tour through part of their building they had all the safety procedures in place and they were able to deal with the fire pretty quickly then subtly.

"The people of color sustainable housing at work that is intended to really transform. How do really different communities think about. What's broadly construed as cooper's ownership but legally means there's lots of different some variations of it that are best for particular particular projects. But what we're trying to do is educate people to be able to help themselves and think about. How do you come together with your immediate community to take control of your housing. Take control of your workspace and make that permanently affordable so you both have ownership control and you're not setting something up where it works great for you but if whatever you decide to leave for whatever reason whether it's ten years from now one hundred years from now you're not nikki. It impossible for anyone else to do. That's an education program training program and outreach program really excited about than there's straightforward housing development and acquisition in rehab projects. Where another thing that we all face is displacement. Though racial makeup of the bary's communities has been changing and not for the better like huge percentage of our black and brown community in berkeley and oakland has been displaced in the last decade and is happening escalating rate. The anti displacement projects are where we go in typically work with tenant organizing groups and resonant groups to identify buildings like. We did ten street in berkeley to project Recently did where the owner had set up the building for what's re positioning which in less banal language means it's going to be sold to hedge fund investors who will effectively evict. Everyone were convince everyone to leave so that the rents And doesn't really matter what the rent laws are. The investment organizations wave winning. So what will have been able to do you again with measure in berkeley helped. Someone project major k. k. In oaklands in various other regional financing issues have let us be able to come in by building from the market. It is in the midst of this. Start stabilizing the building. Identify riyadh that needs to be done eventually. Make make it. So remains to following up on that. How has covid nineteen impacted the northern california land activities to try to secure housing. It's it's made it all incredibly complicated. A lot of our work is actually not necessarily best suited to do remote involves real feelings real people and often in communities that don't have wonderful internet access so it's been a tough year and it's also been a tough year for a lot of our projects which largely have a great deal of autonomy so when a building is completed typically the residents only improvements. Not always but in in many cases and manage day to day things and a lot of projects have had a really hard time where the scene thirty forty fifty percent of the residents suddenly complete unemployed at the same time as serve buildings. That are not. He's buildings and everyone is cooped up there. Twenty four seven for months in that. That gets hard dispute resolution. Mediation folks have been busy this year. It's also lead into the work that we're doing with catherine and a bunch of other. Clt's in the bay area berkley. Tendency union really drove being part of the emergency rental assistance program. The state put out. That call was knowing how really hard hit so. Many of our residents were our goal initially was just to make sure that our residents got help. And then you start getting into it and go. Wow okay our residents are really hard hit. But that that's dwarfed by the state it's really a lot of people. Don't have all the paperwork to hand that the state and local applications ask for engine really need a helping hand to make sure things happen and is the encouragement ago. Yes there is help there. It's real help it's not. There's a lot of distrust of government agencies. Still a lot of people. Is that really intended to help me. Or is this something like what's the secret story behind it whereas the bad to it and since been satisfying to see our team via the help a lot of people last week we passed the six hundred's in person and or one on one sort of direct assistance in the last six weeks so that's six hundred households there. That's great so i'm gonna turn my next question and start with you catherine wooder. What are you seeing. Some of the biggest issues facing artists in housing and in workspace of course issue always for artists in finding housing or any other kind of space is affordability in the bay area. That's been an issue for quite some time. But i began working on this issue back a long time ago. In city of san francisco when we were doing the first cultural element in a city master plan and one of the things that we realize. It's live work in particular a lot of artists. It's not enough to conventional housing unit. They need that workspace onto how nontraditional space where you can do welding or you could make loud noise with your saxophone at night or whenever is is a particular type of space artists need that is in short supply so the biggest issue we've seen as affordability but then zoning and codes currently written and have been for some time can really a big barrier because lot of the housing that artists need is non-conforming with existing codes particularly residential card. In san francisco. We succeeded in redoing doing the first interpretation of the uniform building code create on the work code that was predominantly commercial in nature dominantly work in a certain percentage of live that was unfortunately used during that era is the eighties to allow a lot of the work. Life styling units but city of oakland just recently redid their code put back in some of the stuff they had stripped out recently. They pulled some of those things out in a much harder for existing buildings and existing housing to qualify. We're at the point now. We're just trying to rescue or save housing. It's been here for a long time. That suddenly is seen as non-conforming because there's pressure from cannabis this pressure from developers Head funston high pointed out. This real estate is really valuable. So i'd say i afford ability seconds zoning codes the third has to access to the capital and expertise one of the things that we found as we started touring buildings and we were a lot with safer spaces. Diy wishes were directly with hundred spaces in oakland to stabilize them. We learn about spaces that are trying to stabilize the radar that are having problems coming into compliance and speak with them and as i was saying some of the populations that we work with rental assistance firm. Don't trust the government and don't know how to prepare an application multiply that for art and that don't trust. The government have not had good experiences with inspectors and also don't have the expertise sometimes to access the capital or access the professional assistance. They would need to bring a building code. So it all comes down to access which i think is is true about a lot of marginalized populations in our society with some of these liberal buildings. It can get a little bit more complicated because type of housing that there is so nontraditional that there's a whole lot of mary around that they get on trying to just get it basically but i think that's. That's what i say is one of the biggest. Systemic issues is that got address the capital with also address the codes and then now building. Anything new is prohibitively. Expensive so adaptive reuse becomes the solution. It has has been for many cities and years where covert is actually given us a gift. Is that things are getting marginally more affordable and accessible in this situation. Those i pointed out there's also over land grab going on certain people were taking the long-term trying to get in there as well so i in same question for you. I mean you're on the ground with your team every day not only building but also managing as well. Wh- what are you feel are some of the big issues facing artists in our community.

"Your host. This episode is part of our series exploring covid nineteen impact on nonprofits and small businesses in the san francisco bay area back in april of twenty twenty when we decided to create this ongoing series on covid nineteen impact i or nonprofits and then on small businesses in the san francisco bay area. We like you had no idea how long the pandemic would go on. And what the health and economic impact would be in our community with vaccinations increasing cove nineteen cases and deaths decreasing. We're now moving into the summer of twenty twenty one with the reopening of the economy and all of the uncertainty of ever changing indoor and outdoor vaccinated and unvaccinated protocols and politics. That will drive how we all come back together as a unified or fractured community.

The focus of this week's episode is on housing for our artists community. Members are featured voices are the executive consultant for vital arts catherine reasoner and executive director of the northern california land. Trust i in winters who share about their work with our artists community to develop solutions to deal with the pandemic's ongoing impact on their housing. I'm joined remotely by executive consultant katherine richner vital and the executive director of the northern california community land trusts i n winters. Thanks for being here. Catherine thanks church. So i'd like to begin by having each of you provide a little background on each organizations. So catherine why don't we start with vital arts and then we'll move over to the northern cal california community land. Trust thank you. I don was founded out of the tragedy of the ghost ship. Fire edward. burr brown lost his son. Jonathan the night of the fire and with two of his good friends. Beth jay and tom dolan founded by arts to honor the memory of those lost in the fire by ensuring access to save for double spaces artist to live work and perform we act as an advocate facilitator and catalyst for solutions and seeking systemic change in the way artists artist housing and birkin performance base are dealt within the bay area and we were very flexibly in collaboration with others but we are a constant presence and happen jerk several years and now catherine one of your main programs is the the opportunity loan fund yet. We work in three areas. All are sort of based on stemming displacement of artists. The first one was looking at without a lot of time looking at the needs existing lib workspaces and analyzing what the barriers were and one of the things we found course access to capital is often issue but we found that with existing liberals faces particularly in oakland where we estimate is about two hundred that are under the radar access to sometimes even modest amounts of capital to get an engineering study done or to help with soft cost preconstruction to address code issues can do or or really threatened an entire ecosystem artists living and working in the space so the opportunity loan fund is a small sort of modest revolving fund that provides capital for particular projects to take advantage of specific opportunities. That might allow them to leverage greater sustainability. We also at this moment working on three or four different projects. We've been working a lot on code and zoning issues that are in the way on addressing advocacy with public officials like for example. The city of berkley which just passed a lot of funding for affordable housing artists were not included in the house and guidelines or even in the language that would have permitted that so getting artists written in as a priority endangered group along the teachers firefighters. As we didn't city of berkley but also getting colds and zoning to address nontraditional housing such as left work can have real big dividends and we've got one development now will include three artists units in new construction in an affordable housing development in berkeley as a result of some of early advocacy. Somewhere working at both ends trying to preserve and trying to get new housing developed and katherine. How does vital arts work with with i and the northern california community land trust. I should let i and speak to that working on a couple of levels. Violence does work through collaboration with others. We know that there are a lot of other agencies. Have been doing this work a lot longer than we have specifically when it comes to things like housing very complicated understand that at landscape and some none in california community land trust is really trusted partner because not only do they know the landscape and how what some of the challenges on the ground but they have fostered and seated several other land trust and other entities in the area and i and himself as a practicing artist doesn't need us to explain to him. Wet artist live work. Housing looks like and how unusual it is. So we've been working with them. Were recently on the emergency. Rental assistance program can talk more about that. I and invited us to do outreach. The civically to artists to make sure that artists are aware that the state has put aside one point five billion soon to be three billion dollars in rental relief which is now being matched by the feds. We're finding that arts institutions even at the city level. Don't know about this that the arts community has completely been left out of the communications has been very exciting to do that outreach. Because arneses many of us know we can talk about are among the hardest hit in unemployment since covid and the need is very great. We're also hoping to develop a program that will sort of focus on deed restrictions to existing property that are occupied by artists to ensure that there permanently restricted to artists. Use in the future. And we're looking at different strategies to do that and turn it to you on. Can you walk us through all of the wonderful programs. You guys are policy advocates. You have your own housing. you have commercial. You're doing co ownership. Lots of great stuff. Yeah what and try to touch on some things. Above all the mcat was was founded in nineteen seventy with an incredibly broad mandate that in some ways it's inspiring and at the same time the type of broad mandate up until this year. I would say you wouldn't have been able to charter. An organization that original purpose was set up to found and spread the he model across northern california.

"Anita shabri haley branson pods cover northern california for the times over the past couple of years each have covered the rise of anti-government groups in the region anita says the covid nineteen lockdowns further field that movement in shasta county. I think that's exactly right. This has been around for a long time but it was really two things happening at once. Trump who is very very very popular in these areas losing the election and then the coronavirus lockdowns set this movement on fire yet at some militia members and some just residents starts to create these online videos to help grow the movement spread. It's message right. So what you've seen in shasta. Is this very sophisticated Attempt to both monetize and turn into a media company and spread this movement about taking back local government and really their tagline is draining your own swamp so they're taking that trump movement all that trump energy now has no place to go this group up. There is hoping that if they're successful in shasta they can kinda export that places. There's been one group in particular that has stirred that proverbial they call themselves the cottonwood militia. What's their story. And what are their stated political goals cottonwood is a very kind of to road town. Right on the border of the county law enforcement of there's very Fit there aren't a lot of deputies and this particular town felt like they weren't getting the sheriff's patrols that they need it and so about ten years ago a little over that they had a series of break ins in town and in response to that they formed the cottonwood militia sort of their own neighborhood patrol albeit heavily armed one that has since then grown to stretch all the way up through mode county. So it's really expanded quite a bit. They have scholarships they run a boys camp but they do military training in the woods and they're heavily armed so there is a a real sense that are their own force to be reckoned with in the area. You have this cottonwood militia. You have this resistance. Coronavirus pandemic shutdown his popularity of donald trump. You have this long history of secessionist movements up in northern at then haley. now it's coming to ahead in a very public fashion during these board of supervisor meetings it's been building all year and it did really come to a head in january on january fifth the day before the. Us capital was stormed. There was a county supervisors meeting in shasta county and this was supposed to be a remote meeting This was right at the heart of the winter. Surge cases were rising there as they were throughout the state and what happened was to county supervisors unlocked the doors and they had an unauthorized in-person meeting and in flooded dozens of people who were furious about all of this. Here's one of them. Kimberly pull in order to open up staff county and support for justice and support people. That's really mound. that was your free to the supervisors. Were there in person and three watch. Virtually those are the three that are currently up for recall. People said that you know they weren't willing to to face their constituents there was all of this fury over the krona virus. What was happening locally but there was also talk about trump and about biden and the speeches. They're just had these very violent threats Talk of civil war and revolution and then stood and he said He said when the ballot boxes gone. There's only the cartridge box and he said you've made bullets expensive but luckily for you ropes a reusable and the man. We're about to hear whom haley just referred to timothy.

What makes what's happening in shasta county different. I i just want to be really clear that the folks that they are trying to recall are conservatives so this is absolutely a movement to replace conservatives with a far right what would they consider a constitutionalist government. So what they're saying is that shasta. County is not beholden to the state or the federal government a insurgency against local government that would allow local government to act independent of state and federal laws. And i think that what makes this so interesting is that they perhaps have a shot at turning this government far right in one of the stories that both of you row you profiled a local activist. Who has been antagonizing. The cottonwood militia and other conservative residents of shasta county by satirizing them online Nathan pick ni that led him to being assaulted and police originally portrayed him as a bad guy but the reporting on your story showed otherwise..
