"Called bridging the gap where we connect with a small christian college to try to have our students have this experience. I think that You know the truth of the matter is that we all need to practice how we listened with the purpose of understanding not with the purpose of changing people's minds and the only thing i will say about college students that i think they sort of gotten a little bit of a bad rap here It's it's not like society has studied me better nelson and so this notion that college. Let's focus on these eighteen. And nineteen and twenty year olds who are in the development stages now live and say boy. You guys are getting it wrong congress. Okay family at thanksgiving point. So it's a little bit unfair. And i think this has been a hyper focused on college students but i will say that we are taking a head on at oberlin. I believe we have to synced out in the world that have an ability to hear and understand. Yeah absolutely but it isn't specific at all by the way and you're absolutely correct and there's criticism the co this. This idea of hotbeds of cancel culture but at the same time you have to worry of the colleges reflecting the real world or sometimes. It's a good thing. I have big issues with his cancel. Culture ideas. I think sometimes it used to be called accountability For if you say offensive things and people are offended. How can you be offended that. They're offended you. Know what i mean like it gets into this weird thing but in one case it turned at oberlin it turn into pretty lawsuit with students accused the local bakery. Racially profiling a black student. The owners bakery sued the school. You are initially ordered to pay forty four million dollars because it looked like you were supporting. This was later slashed to twenty five million i. I know you're appealing the case. But how do you in the real world deal with these costly experiences..

"How do you have the revenue to provide the academic experience that all students want add value But it certainly is true that we're trying to balance our revenue and our and our expenditures and merit aid is a piece of that balance I wouldn't describe it as out of whack at least not here at oberlin. But it is part of the how this financial model works. Would you eliminate merit based scholarships to is it something. I mean other colleges hamilton. Franklin and marshall and marshall's endowment is less than yours to focus more on financial aid for need based students. Or do you feel like you've serving those. I think we're serving our students. Well you know opelousas. History is a part of that serving. But i think our commitment to diversity. Inclusion is is well documented. I mean we are. We will be spending time in the future thinking about kind of through the presidential initiative that we launched after the george floyd murder how we do better in diversity across all ranks of the institution and i think remember that one of the things. That's a little bit different about a woman is that we're kind of at outside in terms of number small liberal arts college right so most of our appears are eighteen hundred twelve hundred we happen to be closer to three thousand. That makes our model a little bit different. You know this idea of artificial constraints on supply. Why not make it bigger either remote learning and put your investment money there. Were you bring more people in. Do you see that happening. Because the idea of you know the colleges are proud of their rates of non admission. It's really quite. I've never seen any like we aren't letting anybody in like lucky us. It is it is one of the aspects of our sector that that concerns Jokingly said on a panel one time it's hard to to be proud of how many reject I do think that s colleges imagine what the future will be in. This is part care to about what the sector optima looks like. Meaning how many institutions make it through this covert era and what the demand will be. I think there will be some pressures to think about. What expansion looks like I said early on when i got here to oberlin. I'm doesn't oberlin. Education mean the only way to get the show up in oakland ohio. And so. I do think it's worth thinking about what it might mean and i do think that covert will force us if you ask me..

"Everybody was on campus. So that value didn't change and the challenge for all of us is. How do we make that transformation experience more accessible to more students. Well be lower costs. I mean you know. I just saying people that think it's not worth it. Obviously you've heard peter thiel go on about this. I don't even go to college and scott gala who's at nyu and he's been a vocal critic rising tuition. He compared harvard. I think he goes more at harvard. Then you then you guys but is very expensive streaming service. That's what he calls it. Like net flix and that's a joke of course but are you worried that remote learning and and the thought that is this worth it be a threat to the financial wellbeing of institutions. Like oberlin. i mean you don't harvard. You have a very large amount of money that you can rely on but of course it could could buy sell france at this point. Well i call those students. The nation states right into because we harvard christening yale multibillion dollar endowments i would put obviously in that category but i do think we're in the category of institutions. That are not as concerned about this challenges. Some institutions that have released mall endowment are hugely tuition dependent but listen every sector and it is no different has to be concerned about people's perceptions of our value and whether the investment is worth and the return on investment right and the return on investment. and and. listen. I i've been in higher education for twenty plus years and i do a lot of admissions events just because i think important for the president to be there fifteen years ago. Parents were not asking us about our. They literally asked that question. What's my return on investment. For this expanse you'd never got the never got an roi but now you're never now you get all the top literally that is a normal question edited mrs of it so parents are asking you. Why is this investment worth it. Here's we have to demonstrate. We have to demonstrate that the academic experiences obviously worth what they're getting outside the classroom. We also have to demonstrate that what their life after oberlin is by and are we doing a good enough job to prepare them for the variety of opportunities and experiences that they envision after oberland unlimited say beyond careers. But it's also about preparing your soul..

"And so what we have to do in this sector is embrace the innovation. And i think we've been hesitant to do that. Because you know the truth of the matter. Is that colleges are some of the oldest institutions in the country and we can be rather conservative despite people's views of liberal waiting in terms of our desire to change ourselves we can be really conservative. I don't think anyone's surprised by that. I say well we're built in a way that takes us a long time to get to a different model. Speaking of that a lot of liberal colleges are really struggling now the financial strain of the pandemic has impacted the ability of students to afford education. have you changed your tuition costs at all. So we haven't changed our tuition costs although we have clarified. How we provide need based aid so remember one of these places that meets full need we. We happened to be blessed to be able to do that for our students. And so you know when you look at our sticker price. What you're really saying is that most students are paying between thirty five and forty thousand dollars. Seventy thousand dollars. Seventy five thousand dollars or seven almost seventy six thousand dollars. Yeah so you know. I think that That's really been the focus of our institution to make sure it's accessible. But it is an industry challenge and i think places like oberlin half a little bit more protection because of our endowment and other things but if you want to give you wanna see gnashing of teeth and raining pans get a group of college presidents together and asked him about our prices and it just creates the pheno instantaneous. Oh my goodness because we know that this accessibility question is a value that most of us share and our have not matched up with family income right now but then you've implemented cost saving measures during the pandemic like salary cuts and you cancelled some programs. Why is the price of tuition. The same now is that these costs aren't going away. Or what is if you had. Apparently why am i paying all this. Well what. i was appearances that What.

"Your own health and safety your neighbors health and safety and i think that a president of a campus for three thousand students may have more influence and ability to encourage that collective action than it may be for a president with twenty thousand students that required cancellation of sports and other campus events. So people were upset about sports cancellations specifically there was a petition to bring them back. How did you answer these various things so this was all about balancing risk and the risk and athletics by its very nature. It asks you to do various things that The cdc will recommend you not do in close contact reg breathe on each breathe on travel all things and so what we said is is that risk worth what it might mean to have an outbreak on campus and what we determine was that particular risk. Was it worth what we discovered over time is that we could create our let us the where bubble because we know how it is not would every time i say that but we did create a framework where we didn't have an outbreak on campus. The real challenge with athletics. Frankly is a travel component going to other campuses engaging with other communities and then the effort itself so that's what he required and that was the only one of the only areas where you couldn't duplicate competition right so in our conservative we had to make also changes to i. There was no public performances right here. The students here coming for this profession. They cannot perform for an audience but we could do some things. Different for those students created a whole set of digital platform to people. They see there were. Yeah there were things that we could do athletics. We couldn't duplicate competition right. There's not a cello off or something. That's not jello over land now that you said that i've michigan channel. What am i ran college campuses. There would be show you know what but you know that's to require you name that with donation which should channel now would make money the ticket sales it exactly. That's right. I'm i'm a business minded person so also partying same thing. Do you have very strict enforcement of social distancing. We did so we ask every student asana community agreement and a community agreement indicated that you couldn't have gatherings it was pretty strict and You know the first semester in the first few weeks We had to send about fifteen students away and so they had to be not only off campus but essentially at least fifty miles away so they went home because they violated the community agreement to get to come back. They get to come back the next her. So you talked about the vaccine campaign program that includes a vaccine distribution centers we be requiring proof of vaccination in the future. Have you look at something like that. It's interesting so we did do that for the flu. Shot so this year we required all students to get the flu shot and they had to provide proof of the flu shot It'll be a little bit different with the vaccine because.

"I'm cara swisher. And you're listening to sway last fall. My eldest son louis started college at nyu during the pandemic as a parent. I had a ton of questions like how schools were making safety decisions of course but also how they justify their high price tags for what was essentially zoom classes. Those are the questions at carmen twilly and has been grappling with for the past year. She's a president of oberlin college. A small liberal arts school in ohio well known for its music conservatory and for its progressive student body. Welcome to sway carmen. So i want to start our conversation by going back to march of last year Remember that remember. I do i do i remember barge. It was a it was a challenging time. Yeah absolutely when copen nineteen. I started to seriously spread across the us during the time. My son was gearing up to start college the upcoming fall and we were all thinking about the safety of it. By march twelfth. You announced students would not be returning back to campus. After spring break and the remainder of the semester be conducted online. Can you take us through that decision. I remember that moment so vividly. Because it's probably one of the most difficult decisions i've had to make in my professional career so i came in on that morning. I call an emergency meeting of our two. Deans into the conservatory. Arts and sciences our chief of staff and literally walked in it was probably seven thirty eight in the morning. And i walked in and said hey guys i think we're gonna have to shut this down. What convinced you was reports. It was a series of things. It was a public health. Reports that started to demonstrate that they weren't clear about how this virus spread and remember a college campuses have this congregate setting framework that make it complicated to think about how you prevent the spread and it became clearer and clearer that a weeded not have the ability and the knowledge to prevent a widespread outbreak college campus..
A Culture of Silence
"Hey welcome to the. podcast politics, race, and culture from a multi layered POC perspective I'm money. and. Joining us from Overland Ohio professor. Jeanette. Is Cultural anthropologist author and professor of Comparative American Studies at Oberlin College Hey Gino welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me and thank you for being in Ohio. We need you and joining us from New Jersey. Also, very important state is Pam Gumbo spot mashes a veteran of foreign policy organizer and a senior political strategist. At the Working Families Party welcome. Pam. Thank you so much for inviting me. All right. So we are looking at a sad story, the story of Vanessa Gin. But we're going to put it into a larger context. Right? We hope everybody knows the story of. She's twenty year old specialist in the US Army who went missing from Fort Hood army base in Killeen Texas, which is about. Fifty minutes away from Austin. Right at the end of April. When many of us at least here in the east coast were in the throes of like pandemic insanity more than two months. Later, there was an extensive manhunt. Finally, there was a grassroots campaign led by let the women service members and veterans, and there was national each and the family was finally told that their daughters remains had been found with the backdrop of a global pandemic and you know this real. For Racial Justice long-held accusations have reemerged into the national spotlight around the military sexual violence in the military. Violence and how you protect yourself from other people who have guns and you're living on a base in the military and so many other intertwined injustices in systems that ultimately were responsible for says, disappearance and death. So Pam you've been actively involved in the campaign for justice for Vanessa is well is speaking out on these issues in fact, for years Gina You as an academic have written extensively about the military's relationships specifically with Latino and Latina communities. So gene, we're going to start with you talk about the significance of this case and what it's putting into the national spotlight from your perspective. Well, as you say, this is such a tragic set of circumstances that brings us here together but I think it's also really kind of an important opportunity to honor Vanessa's life and. Hannity, incredible activism, an extraordinary advocacy of her sisters, her younger sister Lupe and her other sister and her mother to bring this to national attention and I. Think. For me one of the things that. So extraordinary about this is that for some people, this is new that this is something that is surprising to people because I think for many people like Pam and others who are have been in the military know that issues of sexual violence and sexual harassment in the military have a long history. And Violence Against Latinos and the way that in social media and used media have framed this as femicide. We also know that this has a long history in our communities alongside history and our communities. So for me, this is a real opportunity to draw attention to things that we don't want to pay attention to enter really hold our elected officials accountable to addressing these longstanding problems that have is incredible impact. On Latina's and women's lives and on their families and communities that they have sworn to protect and that they have enlisted in the military to try to protect, and so I see this as a tragedy that is also a real opportunity. Pam Do you see it the same way tragedy? That's an opportunity from your perspective as somebody who served in the military what stands out about the importance of this case I. Will tell you. I. Organized Around Pretty Heavy topic sprayed ending wars, militarism violence holding the department, of Defense, accountable and when I heard about the disappearance, right because we can't forget that she was disappeared choose disappeared for months and I learned about it through Spanish language media and social media networks not through the English. Media networks and the sowed and devastating part is that Vanessa is one of thousands on thousands. And I think the social media explosion that happened with Vanessa that Hashtag shows you how prevalent this is what is different however, I do think that we are in a reckoning moment in this country where everyday people are no longer satisfied with hypocrisies. Yeah and what greater of hypocrisy than the daughter of an immigrant joining the military to give her life for what rate what caught my ear when I heard. Gloria. Vanessa. Ganz immigrant mother on the Spanish language news. She was very clear about what was happening. She said me e my daughter told me that she was being sexually harassed by a superior right and nothing was done. There was little to no urgency. has also done what often doesn't happen, which is she has not treated the military the Department of Defense generals she has not treated them with blind allegiance or ability. She has said I don't care that I'm a working class, Latina you're going to respect me and you're going to give me answers which is different right and I think that blind allegiance we'll get into it but blind allegiance to the. Institutions have really lead US astray and not had any accountability for
Forever Free: Edmonia Lewis
"Hey Joel Lauren Hey so. You know what I feel like I have been I have I have not done our podcast. Justice. And the reason being is because you know every. So often we do an episode on historical person. And it seems that you do a lot of episodes about like strong influential women. And I do episodes on. Deeply White Dude's. Deeply disturbed man and I was like you know what? I'm going to remedy this today. I'm going to do it right and I had I had known very little about this person until I started doing my research, the more I learned about her the more I was. Like. Impressed about her. Just. Her talents and her very interesting life and everything. So today. I'm going to be doing an episode on Ed Monia Lewis. Yes I don't know who that is. So at Monia Lewis was the first professional and internationally known African American sculptor. Wa Yes so Her work was like well known all over the world during this time period but we'll get into it so. she was she is believed to have been born on July fourth eighteen, forty four that she didn't. She didn't know her her birthdate. Lot of people didn't warn free in Greenbush New York, which is now the city of Rent Rensselaer and her father was Afro Haitian while her mother her her name was Catherine Mike Lewis was of Mississauga, Gibb Way and African American descent. So she was both African American Haitian and native American Great. her mother was known as an excellent weaver in crafts woman while her father was a gentleman servant and her family background inspired Lewis in her later work. So, by the time she reached the age of nine. Both of her parents had died to maternal aunts adopted her and her older half brother whose name was Samuel. He was born in eighteen thirty five to lose his father and his first wife in Haiti and the family came to the United. States, when Samuel was a young child Samuel eventually became a barber at age twelve after his father died because he needed to start making money for the family and so he became a barber I know isn't as seventh grader giving you a haircut that's a nightmare but apparently. We're pulling your teeth both. Apparently. He was very good because eventually he moved out West in became an entrepreneur in a landowner and was very successful. but at the time, the children lived with their aunts near Niagara Falls for about four years and Louis in her aunt sold Agip way baskets and other items such as moccasins, embroidered blouses, tourists, visiting. Niagara. Falls, TORONTO, and Buffalo. So Little Gail. during this time Lewis went by her native American name, which was wildfire while her brother was called sunshine or sunrise, which is like these are just cool. ASS names. Great names may great names man. So in eighteen fifty, two Samuel F. for San Francisco leaving Lewis in the care of captain s mills, and Samuel provided for her board and education. Captain are mills was a an abolitionist. He was a well known abolitionists at the time. So in eighteen, fifty, six, she enrolled at New York, Central College McGraw Hill which was a baptist. School at McGraw Hill. Louis. Met many of the leading activists who would become mentors, patrons and possible subjects for her work as her artistic career developed. So during her summer term there in eighteen fifty-eight, she took classes in the primary department in preparation for college, and she was enrolled in primary courses in order to help advance her reading and writing skills along with other subjects of academia that we're not quite advanced enough for the academic department. So. In a later interview, she said that she left the school after three years having been quote declared to be wild. Oh Wow. Yeah. She said until I was twelve years old I led this wandering fishing and swimming and making moccasins I was then sent to school for three years in McGraw Hill was declared to be wild they could do nothing with me Oh Yeah. So they seem to have expected a lot from. A kid who had been grown up just like doing whatever she could to survive. So. Eight fifty nine when she was about fifteen years old her brother Samuel and abolitionists sent her to win Ohio where she attended the secondary Oberlin Academy Preparatory School for the full three year course before she entered Oberlin College, which was one of the first US higher learning institutions to admit women and people of Color. At the time, she changed her to Mary Monia Lewis and began to study art. So from here on out, she's known as Ed Monia Lewis. She boarded with Reverend John. Keep his wife from nine until she was forced from the college in eighteen sixty three. So I'll tell you about that in a second. But at Oberlin with a student population of one thousand Lewis was one of only thirty students of color. Yeah, Reverend keep was white a member of the board of trustees and avid evolutionist and a spokesperson for Co Education so throughout her life, she was kind of moved from from patron to patient as a young child mostly with abolitionist family Scott.
The Inside Scoop on Ben & Jerry's
"There's something really comforting about a pint of Ben and Jerry's even though it's full of sugar and Saturated Fat. It somehow feels okay. You know what I mean. Maybe it's the fair trade symbol on the front or the we buy from local dairy farmers on the side of the pine or most likely seeing Ben and Jerry's photo on it because you kind of know they're good guys that their hearts in the right place and the thing is all that peace and justice and love and equality stuff that Ben and Jerry's kind of tied together with brand it's real. It wasn't a gimmick it wasn't a strategy designed to attract customers. Because it's who they are. There weren't social enterprises back when these guys started and they certainly never plan to get rich but they did do well and they did do good and their amazing story of building. One of the most beloved ice cream brands actually begins almost sixty years ago. When Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield or at the same middle school on Long Island in New York? We were both fat. This kids we were both Nerdy not not in the mainstream socially. We were the two slowest fattest kids in gym class. You know if you're running around the track and you're half left behind everybody else. There's another guy there. Besides you get pretty friendly with a guy and did you end up going to the same high school. We went to Calhoun high school. We graduated. Barry was a math league. I was a debate club. I let her to debate letter and math. You guys grow up in Long Island. You Finish High School there and did you. Where did you go Jerry? Where did you go to College Ben? Where'd you go? I went to a lot of colleges. I went to Colgate I went to skid more I went to. Nyu went to the new school. What you did the circuit I dropped out of all those are And then I finally joined the university without walls which was the most unstructured college program at the time. The idea was that the whole world was your campus. You go out there and learn whatever you wanted to learn the new comeback to this administrative body and proved that you learn it and they give you a degree and I dropped out of there too so that was my college career still too much structure. Fan and Jerry. How about you? I went to Oberlin College in Ohio. I did four years straight. I was premed and applied to and got rejected from lots of medical schools on two different occasions. So so you guys were. I mean look failures. Let's be honest. Chat is untrue. But what happened after you graduate? How did you guys reconnect? Well I I was working Out of school for disturbed. Kids in the ADIRONDACKS. I was teaching pottery there and then I decided I wanted to try to learn a try to be a real potter. You know those who can't teach those who can do well. I tried doing and Nobody would buy my pots so I I left the adirondacks. I moved to New York City in order to get some more other influences on my pottery and of course it was so expensive to live in New York the needed to spend my time making rent driving cab and so I had this apartment. Pretty grungy apartment. Jerry showed up in New York. And you moved into Ben's apartment or you just you just ended up both by did sewed this after I graduated college after my first bout of medical school rejections I moved in with Ben in New York City and then I left and went to North Carolina and after my second bout of medical skirt Jackson's I connected with Ben Again and it was at that point we decided to Put our fortunes together and Open up a little shop which yeah which turned out to be an ice cream business. You know we. We didn't exactly think of it as a business. We thought of it as a venture like. Let's do something because we're right right. That's exactly right. Let's do something for a couple of years and then after we do that. Let's do something else. We talked about becoming cross country truck drivers after we did this ice cream shop so was ice cream. The the the main idea. Was that what you were going to do from from the beginning. Because because I've read that that you weren't really sure what kind of shop be we're GONNA do. Yeah we thought we would do something with food because we'd always liked to eat and we wanted to live in a college town so we thought about picking a food that was becoming popular in big cities but had not yet been brought to a college town and at that time the foods we thought about where bagels and homemade ice cream so we we went to a used restaurant supply store to price out BAGEL making equipment. This was G in G restaurant supply. All New York Luis There Luis this old guy with a gold chain around his neck and a big cigar in his mouth and He he told us we didn't have enough money to buy BAGEL equipment. He also told us I wouldn't screw you. Life's too short so I'm curious. I'm curious were you. Because you guys were mid twenties and did you sit down like you know. Hang out late nights putting out a strategy thinking Starting to think about different ideas you could do together and you meeting in in cafes during the day or was it a candidate even. How did you even start to develop this idea? It was just much less. It was just much more sort of the old days before cafe culture right right. No we did not meet in cafes to discuss this but we did discuss it quite a bit and we researched it quite a bit. We sent away for thirty espy. A pamphlets that cost between fifteen cents and three dollars per on all the different aspects of running a business. This is just like pamphlets from the from the small business that you were available. The government had how to calculate your break even point Pretty pretty basic stuff our goal when we open. Let's to make twenty thousand dollars a year a piece which was pretty good money. I guess in in the late. Seventy s right. No it was shitty money and it took us a long time to achieve that goal when you were in New York and of thinking about what you could do. How did you settle on on an ice cream shop? At how did you settle on Burlington Vermont? Well we settled on ice cream because Bega Clinton was too expensive and we settled on Burlington Vermont because originally we settled on Saratoga Springs and we actually moved to Saratoga Springs to get ready to open up the place and We're spending most of our time working on this business plan for an ice cream shop and doing a lot of research and we took this correspondence course and how to make ice cream. We were doing the correspondence course. We got the big college text book called. Ice Cream by Williams are buckled. Wendell as Arbox. Thank you the father of modern American ice cream and Jerry could understand that very complex textbook because he had this biochemistry background from his failed medical right so there were some other ice cream shop that opened up in Saratoga Springs before us it was called Afternoon Delight. Did they make good ice cream? We left town. They opened up. Just figure we'RE NOT GONNA WE'RE NOT GONNA open up here because we didn't want to compete and we figured we we had a better chance of success if we opened up in a place where there wasn't much competition and originally we were looking for warm rural college towns in the all. The warm ones already had ice creams as we went further and further north opened and the only town left that we knew anything about was BURLINGTON. Which you know is an hour and a half south. The Canadian border. It's cold there wasn't much ice cream here. I just want to pause for a SEC. Because I think a lot of people here Ben and Jerry's and think these guys were hippies which is true and they're you know they're sort of Activists and and but but that it was just kind of slapdash but you guys really did. Actually I mean there were some method to this you researched. You actually scope out possible locations. I mean this wasn't I mean you were really actually trying to do this in a methodical way. We're very hard worker. Yeah I mean no but when you describe it your your And yes all those things happen. But the way you're describing it is putting a lot more thought and planning into it then then we actually did. I mean we. We just took one step at a time and we did whatever the next thing was in front of us. I I think it was near that time that we kind of realized that the word business is you know. Essentially a kind of a busy nece that is mostly commonsense and a lot of

The Zodiac Killer Pt. 2
"The Zodiac killer contacted the California press for the first time in letters to three bay area papers. He claimed he'd already murdered three people and threatened to kill more. He also included a bizarre coded message which he demanded the papers publish. The papers did with Zodiac asked and a little more than a week later. The cipher was cracked by a couple from Salinas. They revealed a chilling taunting message from the Zodiac. About how much he loved to kill at the time. The term serial killer was not widely understood but it was nonetheless clear that the Zodiac was unique and dangerous kind of criminal. He craved publicity and infamy and he would go to any lengths to get it. It was a frightening proposition but knowing the Zodiacs hunger for fame also gave authorities some valuable insight into the killer's mind. Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note. Vanessa is not licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show thanks Greg. Many people yearn for fame though not everyone actively seeks it. According to Dr Robert Fuller former president of Oberlin College. This is because power is unevenly distributed in society between. Somebody's and nobody's he writes. Nobody's are marginalized to the point of invisibility. Since humans are social creatures. Banishment carries a threat of being deprived of social and material resources critical to health and happiness and sometimes to survival itself. Fame promises an escape. This suggests that the Zodiac felt that becoming infamous would grant him power over others and would turn from a nobody to a somebody precisely the Zodiac. Was likely someone who felt marginalized in his everyday. Life seeking publicity and spreading. Panic might have made him feel more in control for a moment it looked like the Zodiac had gotten everything he desired his crimes. Were big news the talk of the nation but he was soon beaten that his own game on August eighth nineteen sixty nine the same day. His First Cypher was cracked his limelight was stolen by Charles Manson and his family after the brutal murder of five people including the pregnant actress. Sharon tate the Manson's were all the press. Could talk about. The celebrity of their victims granted the Manson family the edge over the Zodiac and this undoubtedly antagonized him to regain notoriety the Zodiac knew. He'd have to do something dramatic nearly two months later on September twenty seventh. He made his move that afternoon. Twenty Year Old Bryan Hartnell and twenty two year old. Cecelia shepard lay on a blanket by the shore of Lake Berry Sa. Brian and Cecilia had made the trip on a whim. They had previously dated but weren't together at the time under the shade of a large oak tree. They enjoyed each other's company and spoke quietly together around six PM. Cecilia noticed some movement in the trees nearby. Brian dismissed her worries. He initially assumed that another lake. Goer was relieving themselves in the woods as they were no bathrooms in the vicinity but he was wrong. Cecilia gassed as a strange man. Holding a pistol approach them from a few hundred feet away. The gun wasn't the only thing frightening about him. He wore some kind of long black hood over his face which extended down past his shoulders. On the man's chest. The symbol of guns crosshairs had been drawn the same symbol the Zodiac used to sign his letters. Neither Brian NOR CECILIA. Recognize the simple and had no idea they were face to face with a serial killer even so the gun and the outfit were more than enough to terrify. Cecilia. At around two hundred pounds and six feet he cut intimidating figure almost like a medieval executioner. Brian wasn't quite as scared as Cecilia. When the man I approached he assumed the getup was just a disguise stolen from a costume shop. Both he and Cecilia watched paralyzed as the man. Got Within seventy five feet of them when he stopped moving. Cecilia asked him what he wanted. The Stranger told them he was there to rob them and warn them against doing anything rash. Brian and Cecilia approached the man and gave him what money they had. Brian only had seventy five cents. But the stranger didn't seem too concerned. It a measured cold voice. He told Brian every little bit help then. He was quiet for a moment. It looked like the hooded man was thinking about what to say next without any provocation. He explained that he was an escaped convict from Montana. He claimed to be on the run to Mexico. Miraculously Brian was still relatively calm about the situation. He felt sure the man was only looking for their money. He hoped he could diffuse the tension by showing some kindness to the would be assailant in offered to write the check for some more money somewhat thrown by. Brian's offer the Zodiac clumsily. Refused his help at first when pressed he finally said he wanted. Brian's car keys. Brian searched for his case. Not sure if wade let them as he searched the Zodiac grew impatient and visibly anxious brain began to believe. The man was bluffing and casually asked if his gun was really loaded. The Stranger promised his gun was loaded and claimed he'd killed before then. He ordered Cecilia to Tie Brian. Up tossing her some clothes line from his pocket while she complied. Brian tried to talk to the stranger. A little more but only received a couple of terse answers the Zodiac Ben tied Sealy as hands in ordered both of them to lay face down so he could find their legs. Brian couldn't help protesting. It was getting dark around the lake and the temperature was getting lower in his mind. The Stranger had already gotten everything he wanted and couldn't understand why his legs had to be tied up the Zodiac pressed the gun into Brian's back and ordered him down again this time. Brian Obeyed and he and Cecilia late on the ground next to each other. Brian grimaced as the man hog tied him. He tried to keep a brave face for Sicilia but he was completely baffled by the situation. The stranger seemed so nervous and so careful. He didn't sound like the hardened criminal he claimed to be and yet he hadn't let down his guard throughout the encounter once the Zodiac has victims tied up. Brian's words no longer seem to have much effect when Brian asked if he was nervous. The Zodiac laughed. Brian followed up again. Asking if the gun was really loaded. The Zodiac Likely Hoping to finally terrify. His victim took the magazine out of the gun to show Brian the bullets. Then he holstered the weapon. It turned out he really hadn't been planning to shoot them instead. He'd brought a knife. Brian and Cecilia watched in horror as the hooded man. Pulled out a foot long blade from a sheath on his hips then without another word he jammed the knife into Brian's back

"You ever been to Oberlin college Josh been up that way? His is it in Oberlin, Ohio. I believe that's the name of the town. Yeah. It's up northeast. Yeah, yeah. It's kind of like kind of like between like Sandusky and Cleveland kind of down in the dip a little bit. But north. I don't know if you've seen the story or not actually saw this on the national review, but a jury has handed out a staggering eleven million dollar verdict against Oberlin for a smear campaign against a local business and awarded another thirty three million in punitive damages to this little mom and pop store. Call Gibson's food market in bakery. Now, they say the damages will probably get reduced. But Oberlin apparently went after this little place claiming that they were just this racist outpost, and what ends up happening is three kids three students. Attempted to shoplift some wine from the store. The owner son pursued and detained the this guy. Police arrested the students who were charged with crimes. Oberlin colleges students Senate passed a resolution, declaring Gibson's. That's the name of the store. Gibson's has a history of racial profiling and discriminatory treatment of students and residents alike. The these kids cop to it all the, the facts of the case were readily available including one of the arrested students quickly offered to plead guilty to theft, all three students, eventually took please and made statements absolving Gibson's of any misconduct. Or racial, have you heard about this case, I, I have followed it. And boy, you finally finally, a victory for Justice and common sense. So it says the dean of students Meredith Ray Mondo, formerly, the special assistant to the president for diversity, equity, and inclusion joined the protests. Here's where the Bullhorn she helped distribute fliers condemning Gibson's and calling for a boycott. This is a racist establishment with a long account of racial profiling and discrimination. Doesn't that they're just making this up students made copies of defamatory flyers? Or the school. Bought them pizza, and beverages and lent them. Their logistical support the school suspended its longtime business with Gibson's and the department of Afrikaner studies posted a comment on Facebook saying, Gibson's food is rotten, and they profile black students all of which apparently has been found not to be true documents reveal that the Oberlin administration was at times afraid of its students and at times, viewed them as a weapon on a professor publicly Jack objected to the schools handling of the matter. Meredith. Ray Mondo said an attacks f him, I'd say unleash the students if I wasn't convinced this needs to be put behind us. Gibson David Gibson, owner of the store repeatedly asked overland to make a statement that Gibson's isn't racist as a gesture toward reconciliation the school arrogantly refused. And now is set the pay up big time. So once again, eleven million dollar verdict against a Oberland, and then another thirty three million impunity damages which they say will probably get knocked down, but still I just points been made. And these that families their lives have been saved that was their entire livelihood. Yeah. And it's all based on lies and even when Oberlin was, how do you how in the world unless you're caving to the mob, outrage mob on campus? When you're presented with the facts from the police in the district attorney still back back down. It makes no sense. Well, it's a good day for them. And, you know, hopefully. This will help kind of reverse this trend, whether it's people refusing debate cakes, you know, for, for gay couples why they want to force those people why you just wouldn't take your business. Elsewhere baffles me, and even now to this, this story I, I heard Glenn Beck talking about it this morning. Who was who did I hear talk about? I think I can't remember who else has been very positive story of light. But one of these kids, one of these survivors of the parkland shooting and he refused to speak out against the NRA. He still pro gun and they've hunted him down. They apparently found some Google docs where he made some racist statements use the N word in a what was meant to be a private conversation between him and some of his buddies. They said they were trying to out shock each other. The kid totally cops to it says, I did it. I'm sorry. This does not represent me. He was fifteen sixteen years old. And he had been accepted to Harvard. And now Harvard got wind of this, they made him jump through a series of hoops, to basically try to save himself. He responded in a timely fashion to all of it, and they still crapped on them this after he was given a full ride to Harvard, he'd already turned down scholarships to go to other schools. And now he's just out and again he he's saying, I did it. I'm not claiming I was hacked like joy Reid on MSNBC or anytime somebody else's found avalaible little baggage in the closet. But are we really going to say that a sixteen year old kid can't make mistakes? And the funny thing was was that also the I forget, what the office is at, at Harvard. Some sort of admissions and. i forget the actual title they had also reached out to him and basically said tell us your story and he copped to it and said it's my fault i did it i'm sorry this isn't me and i'm i'm i'm different person they said we look forward to helping you grow they hadn't even talked to the other part of the school to find out now they're just gonna they're not going to let them in because they're they're going to make an example out of him absolutely most likely because because of his conservative background i i've been following kyle probably since a month or two after the park clan shooting i became aware of him through another conservative person i follow on twitter and he smart great great takes good political outlook and if we're all going to be held to a standard that our lives are going to be ruined based on the things we did when we were sixteen and trying to screw around With our friends. Then you might as well pack up society and just shut it down. There's no reason. When you when you apply that locally, and we've had a couple of things happen locally, whether it was, the, the kids allegedly pudding, bodily fluids in the crepes grow in a school and feeding them to the teachers, do you think a situation like that is worse? And just for the sake of an argument, we'll say that if indeed. The food was contaminated with human bodily fluids. Do you think that's worse than? A racial slur, on a Google doc. Do you think it's the same thing? Do you think they both deserve to be forgiven and said, you know, I believe with what the. With the, the bodily fluids thing, those kids are still in middle school. That was there. They're not even high school students. You know, and then the giant phallic symbol in the hallway for, for graduation. Are these kids ever gonna get to live this stuff down or are there futures? Just absolutely destroyed. i don't know but i know i don't want to feel like we're moving into a dystopia and future that i didn't think would actually come about it it's coming about quicker and i and i got attribute this again i i believe it was this morning glenn beck had mentioned this with one of his guests he quoted there was some author that said basically a few years ago i think in about twenty eleven or so he said the kids growing up in this era Because of social media, and all this documentation. By the time they get into their mid twenties. There's a good chance at a lot of them are going to have to change their names. And assume difference. Life's lives because of baggage from the past that is in the digital realm that they will never be able to outlive, or outrun. he's a spy while i i didn't i don't think we're we really eight years ago thinking about this kind of stuff like this now because it's just going so fast the outright i feel like the outrage mobs didn't really kick in full fact until about obama's second term and i'm not blaming him solely for this don't get me wrong i'm not i'm not an idiot like that i'm just saying i remember with somewhere in the second term of the obama administration when the social justice outrage mob kind of begin to rear its ugly head and now i don't think can what do you think is there any way we can put it back in a bottle no as a society no it's it's just going to keep snowballing well i it's all politically motivated and i it's it's I don't want to jump into a partisan politics thing here. All I'm saying right, this kid and all of those parklands survivors. I don't care what their political allegiances. They all survived a very horrifying incident. that they're gonna spend the rest of their lives trying to cope with in that regard and then you've got political operatives behind the scenes trying to take people out hey has anybody looked into david hogs past or any of the other kids who come from the other political spectrum and look for anything that they could dig up on those kids to try to plunder their livelihood tonight for going forward that's a dangerous wormhole to go down because that's what they've done to this kid i know you're right and once that i rock gets tossed all bets are off because everybody says hey you know yeah we'll knock it off after we take one of your guys out and and then it never ends it comes back and forth back and forth back and forth so couple more things to touch on and we'll do that in the final segment of the.

"Seldom do a much, and of course, the golf tournament yesterday one by Gary woodland with spectacular golf every now and then I check and see what's happening on MSNBC. They had a panel discussion of extreme progressive African Americans did. Crying NYPD in fact, police departments all over the country and urban areas in which white privilege and white supremacy and targeting of blacks as a constant ongoing problem. I'd like to ask the question of the Reverend Al which political parties what which are the two political party control almost every aspect of every urban area in America. Of course, answer would be the Democratic Party here in Cincinnati. The last time Republican was elected to the position of mayor was nineteen seventy-one with Willis gradison almost fifty years ago. And so, I constantly hear the charge of the radical left that we've got to reform, the police department police brutality is rampant. Police have Premacy white supremacy, white nationalism, whatever it is has taken over Chicago police Boston place. New York police Cincinnati police. I assume Dayton place Covington place, Columbus. Police which political party is in charge of the police to borrow. That would be the Democrats. So if Al Sharpton has a problem with this systemic behavior of police departments not individual misconduct, which always take place individuals even cops at times act up, we're talking about systemic oppressive white supremacy, anti black bias all over the place, which is gone all the way down into the into the water system in this country. It is a given fact. It's reality. If that is the case, which, by the way, I do not believe. But if that is the case which political parties responsible for that one hundred percent. That would be the Democratic Party. The media doesn't cover that way. I just did. And so when we roll through life, and look at the circumstances of what happened to the Gibson bakery in Lorain county, which I think is west of Cleveland Oberlin college far left nothing about this verdict will cause the radical left to say, you know what we're on the wrong path here. They three kids ought to be held up for public ridicule because of what they did to that business. They beat up a guy and they stole property from another. That's not the attitude. All they needed to know was the race of the perpetrator and the race of the victim, and then certain liberals the fascist on the on the left. What Ovide based upon that fact, and if it's a black student they can do. Nothing wrong and a white business owner can do nothing. Right. So Gibson is wrong. This tudent is correct. Even if they're shoplifters, even if they beat somebody up that's excusable. And these are the children of privilege. If you or your parents pay fifty to seventy thousand dollars a year to go to Oberlin college are Kenyon college or Audubon, gang very expensive. Then you assault beat up and steal from a middle class person irrespective of color you should be expelled from the school once you're convicted. And they admitted their guilt, there, weren't not video and security cameras Gibson was asked about that during the trial. He said, we can't afford that stuff. So we got up every day at three o'clock in the morning and just get to work. So the Democratic Party and African Americans should be the one at the front of the line saying, we can't accept this behavior. This is wrong. All three of these students. Jonathan Aladdin and the two women with them Cecilia wet stone. India Larence also judgments entered against them for their misbehavior. Are still students at Oberlin college nothing has changed the university or the college has not recognized the wrongfulness of their behavior. And fact, they are doubling down, claiming white privilege, somehow, gives an African American, the right debate somebody up and steal something is that the way you see things.

But because that doesn't change the facts. I don't understand how any parent. Could support overland college in any way the Greek. Those students were they were initially charged with some kind of misdemeanor. But when it want be before a grand jury. They were charged with felony and the owner the bakery, says, well, I don't want these kids, you know, to pay for, you know on this record the rest of their life. So these people have Gibson's they were pretty. I mean they were merciful. They weren't like the college. Well. You know landing thief, what was feeding the hell out of Alan Gibson. I've seen him on TV. See about fifty or sixty years old. I'm not sure I think this was the son. Three people three students set upon him and flown assault or aggravated assault were likely charges. But the Gibson's had mercy by saying, well, these kids, you know, all they wanted to do was sell roles sell some bear. They've been in business over one hundred years. They had a contract with overland provide fresh patriots pastries. They got rid of all that. And so this is not what you're saying.

"Going on out Hieaux that hasn't gotten nearly the national attention at the Serbs involves Oberlin college and. Three three students black students at Oberlin college work used a shoplifting of the day after the twenty sixteen election and Oberlin college the sided to make this a decided it was it was. It was a racist incident on the on the Baker the, the bakery, had committed against these black students even though the, the three black students were one of them was attempting to shoplift than after buying a trying to buy wine without a proper ID, and they ended up beating the owner of their one of the owners of the bakery, a little bakery. But it became a major major causes to what destroy this bakery. There were demonstrations, they lost their college contracts called Gibson's bakery. And, and the one of the deans sort of lead the students in the, the crying, the racism, and there wasn't a racism and the, the students eventually pleaded guilty to shoplifting. So there was no racism, but the Oberland refused to settle up with this bakery, which had been there for five generations in, in the little college town. And so the, the bakery sued and they just one last the last week, I at eleven million dollar judgment against Oberlin college, and this, this week, they've been talking about damages double or triple damages against the college, and there's only one place, that's been reporting that and that is the, the legal insurrection. It's a it's a web. It's a great website. It's run by William Jacobson. He's a professor at Cornell law school, and he's the president of legal insurrection foundation. And so I just wanted to this is, as I said, this is a really interesting story. It's been covered by powerline blog dot com. There's a big op Ed piece about it today in the Wall Street Journal. But I wanted to have a professor Jacobs. Onto discuss this professor Jacobson. Thanks for being with us here on the highway car show. Thank you for having me. So what's the latest on the damage is part of the part of the case? Are they hearing hearing testimony today or if they made a decision? They finish testimony today on punitive damages. So the eleven million dollar award compensatory damages Hieaux to have a cap on punitive damages county twice story. So Jerry could add another twenty two million which would bring the total to thirty three million. The jury could also recommend that the judge awarded attorney's fees to plaintiffs than it would be up to the judge. So this could go well north of thirty three million dollars. We will find out tomorrow tomorrow. It's not gonna it's not gonna be one of these cases where he's going to take under advisement for a couple of months. This is going to be a quick. Jury rendered the verdict and the jury is going to render the unit. Same jury that gave the eleven million he's going to decide on twenty two million. They'll get the case probably late morning lunchtime tomorrow. This is the same jury that Oberlin college just gave kind of a slap to last week after the came back with the initial verdict saying, they, they hadn't followed the facts of the case, even though they'd been sitting there the entire time. Standing and really reflecting the arrogance of overland college that within an hour, I think it was an hour after the million dollar verdict come in came in the general counsel and vice president of Oberlin college sends an all campus Email, blast Email, basically saying that they're, they're sorry that the jury disregarded, clear evidence that the college presented and we did nothing wrong. So they didn't they haven't gotten the message from what I understand, because we're the only national outlet that has reporter in the courtroom every single day of this trial. He's been a month now. And so we've been reporting daily on it from what he tells me today, the jury did hear about that letter and essentially Oberlin college today, pleaded poverty. They, they pleaded for the mercy. What they said, we're cash-poor basically, what is what is the. Almost a billion dollar endowment, but they're trying to look at that you look at, like the cash flow and things like that. So I don't think that's going to go over very big. I mean just not enough things that are numbers. I mean, one of the things that I have to believe inflame, the jury is during the regular case they presented evidence as to compensatory damages how badly was the bakery, hurt or not, right. And the eleven million for the bakery. And its two owners. But on the bakery, part, Oberlin college actually called in experts who was paid seventy five thousand dollars to announce to the jury that fifth generation bakery that supported three generations was only worth thirty five thousand dollars and it just totally tone deaf. It's like where the college where smarter than you. And we don't really care, we're going to do whatever we want. And I think the jury got that sense, and we'll find out tomorrow, you know, whether they feel there's not only need to compensate people, but to punish the college, you would think after they lost the original jury verdict that they wanna go into day and instructed their lawyers to just the sort of apologize and you know, put on a humble face, and, you know, ex, you know, express some remorse, however, insincere, you know, trying to get some of that get some of that. But I, I don't know if they flat out apologize. But they did some of that we understand the message you sent etcetera etcetera. But what I understand that when the general counsel, we sent that last Email was out in the state, and they asked her. Did you ever consider when you sent out that last emails also sending out an apology, and she said, no we never kid. The college can appeal it, though. Right. I mean they they have. Yeah. I don't know whether these people every money appeals tricky things all the pellet court needs to do is find one serious era, by the trial, judge. And this thing could be back. So this battle, I would refer to this trial as you know, the end of the beginning. Okay. That now starts round two which will be pellet process, and that's, that's the risk to these plaintiffs because it doesn't take much for an appeals court to revoke now, just, just to be clear, when when the three students who were were rest were charged with shoplifting. They, they later pleaded guilty to shoplifting and signed statements saying that there was no racism involved in the incident. Right. That's right. Because they were in fact lifting so yeah, he got caught shoplifting. The at the police ran a report of their history of shoplifting arrest at Gibson, speak redoing back decades. And there was no evidence of racial bias there. I mean, I can't remember this specific but it was something like four out of twenty two were minority. Okay. So there's no evidence that Gibson's bakery is just calling the police on every minority student who comes into into the store now. What happens this, this dean of students? I mean, you know, the kids can all claim that, you know, they were just Callow youths and all that they didn't know anything. But this dean of students, Meredith Romando she handed out a flyer accusing Gibson's of having a quote long history of racial, profiling discrimination. What is what happens to her? Well, I don't know. Unfortunately, I've seen naked Denia that often people fail up. Okay. The president at the time of Oberlin college college guy, Marvin, Chris lives, who really oversaw this hold Abaco when it was happening is now, the president of pace university, he got a promotion, he moved up. So what will happen. I have no idea. But I, I would not be surprised if the college kept her on kept her in that position until the cases over bequeath to fire her now, let her go would be an admission that maybe they did something wrong, this happened the day after Trump was elected. And there was a whole rash of these incidents. So where we are in suburban Boston. There was an incident. Some, some local students at a business college work used of making a homophobic, racist chants and a woman school where Hillary Clinton went to college Wellesley college and it. All it was all BS was all nonsense. We this was going on all over the country. But most of them got got saddled with an matter of days, if not months or weeks, this is this is just gone on and on couldn't Oberlin have just put an end to this by with a simple apology, and giving them their contracts back. And, you know, just again just admitting that they were wrong. Yeah. In fact, testimony at the trial from that Gibson, you know, three generations, but two of them, I believe testified that they asked to college not even to apologize. They asked the college to send out a mass Email to everybody indicating that Gibson's wasn't racist. It was no racial profiling, and people should continue to, to use them. College wouldn't do it. If they had done that they probably never would've brought a lawsuit. I mean they were so arrogant. And this was at a time I believe when they knew to affect the students were in fact shoplift. But they couldn't bring themselves to not even apologize. But at least let the community know we've investigated this, the police have investigated it and all these rumors and all these protests are not too, because you know what Mike Sperry Ince's in covering goes on campus. A lot of these administrators are scared to death of the students. They don't want their offices taking over, they don't wanna be accused of being racist. They don't want it right. You know the harassed on campus and harassed restaurants, so they could Pichu late and they cater to the worst elements in the student body. Now, there were a lot of Oberlin students involved. There were a couple of hundred people protesting outside this bakery for a couple of days and the protests were so aggressive that deplete a policeman testified during the trial that they considered calling in the county, riot team, get things under control that how aggressive they had the. Business was so destroyed that they had to lay off pretty much everybody in wasn't a member of the family right at the bakery. That's right. They had I think it was nine or ten employees in the bakery. They had to lay off all, but one of them, they are the owners and ninety year old in sixty year old and his thirty year old grandson, who will work in the business stop taking salary, so they could keep the place afloat. And you know, this was just a really horrible thing this institution. Formed in eighteen eighty five if you can blow, how many businesses from eighteen eighty five day in the family, and this is the business. I mean, the closing argument, I believe plaintiff's lawyer, are you to the jury that this is a business that survived two world wars, the great depression, recession the sixty turmoil but they almost didn't survive, you the Oberlin college aggressive, you know, false race racial accusations their business collapsed. This is a college town over the college is a small town and win the biggest institution in the town, cut you off and everyone who goes to all their and everyone who works. There you off your business collapses. Where do they laid off employees minorities, any.
