"Could have known how much she meant to her. I've had time to think about it over the last years. And she has left such a legacy of kindness and i think about her frequently and i ever think about the person who killed her which i think probably says something about her and what a light. She was to me and to heather. What are the additional tragedies. Patricia's murder is that she had completely turned her life around only to have it taken away but the way that she had changed her life and was on such a good pass for her to be. Cut down like that in speaking with heather. We asked her. She was compelled to reach out to us to share patricia story. I can't remember what episode it was. I remember thinking listening to it. Man someone were talking about my murdered family member. I wouldn't want to be just like that because it's so compassionate and so kind and so victim-focused august. I thought you do a family member. Who was murdered heather. I think sometimes cases happened in small towns or cases at our domestic violence related like this can be overlooked a wiping shot by her husband. Unfortunately a typical if you can call it that murders so sometimes people just sort of glossed over and think. Well that doesn't affect me. And i want people to know that it does. It affects all of us. I think this is definitely a story about how domestic violence spreads to other people. When you're a young woman going through the world sometimes you might say comfort yourself about your own risk of being out in public by thinking. Well statistically speaking. If i'm gonna get murdered by a significant other and i don't have to be a significant other so i'm safe heather's right and it's why domestic violence is literally everyone's problem even if you're not an abusive relationship because the potential violence isn't limited to the two people involved and let's face it. Tiffany was lucky that she survived that night. She even testified to the fact that jacob started putting more rounds in the pistol after. He shot her step. Mom and jacob undoubtedly intended to kill tiffany that night and patricia being the nice and compassionate person that she was she was just trying to help tiffany getaway from somebody with a history of being dangerous. And let's talk about the prevalence of domestic violence in america. Now the cdc reports that one in four women and nine men who experience violence in some form from their partner. They're also statistics regarding individuals who intervene and abusive relationships. That's where this comes into play because it's not always the people in the relationships if you jack in domestic violence like i would intervene right and it. It puts everyone at danger. And it's why. I think we talk about domestic violence a lot and i think we see a lot in most true crime cases. There's some aspect of it but it doesn't just affect the people in those relationships. There's so much more violence that results as an implication the national coalition against mystic violence. His family members like patricia or people who intervene make up twenty percent of deaths that result from domestic violence. That's crazy big deal. Huge deal something. We don't talk about a lot of domestic. Violence is literally everyone's problem and we all have to work towards fixing it as long as there is domestic violence in the world. Nobody else around in abuser safe. Because if you're willing to hurt someone you love. It's not a big stretch before you're willing to hurt somebody else so i think just. In general people think more understanding about the cycle of domestic violence and how abusers get their claws into the person they're using and it's by fbi statistics it takes seven intervention by one percent on average before. And if you can get away from their abusers and then when they do that is the most dangerous time there is help out there if you or someone you know is in one of these dangerous situations a good place to start is with the national. Domestic violence hotline. Can you can reach them at one. Eight hundred seven nine. Nine seats will huge. Thank you to heather for being our. I report this episode.

"patricia" Discussed on The First Degree
"So when they're especially faced with this having to look them in the eye in court in. This guy is glaring at them. Of course they're going to change their story. You know it's very textbook well and it's like the fear of god forbid he would get out or anybody in that situation. They wouldn't be charged with the crime. And then now. They're just in the free world like that has got to be the most terrorizing thing in the entire world. Thinking of not kind of folding. Yes she does support them. No it's on top of measuring what what potentially could happen. What the fallout could happen. If they said something knowing that this person had probably done bad things in the past and gotten away with it and thinking that going to get away with it again he might come in and do something even worse to me. Yeah we have. A lack of understanding of the psychological implications we have no idea the hold that abusers have on their victims. It's a lot easier to look at somebody else's situation and as a black and white situation where it's so nuanced especially with domestic abuse It's such a nuance thing. That do not understand the relationship or the power struggle. That happens especially when you're married to this person for this was twenty seventeen. They got married in two thousand and nine. You have to imagine dated before that they have four kids. It's your entire life. Yeah you don't know anything. Different and psychological influence manipulation has been coming from several directions like we have to reserve judgment in these situations. We don't get it unless we've been there won't also tiffany has literally. She's experienced the worst loss imaginable. Not she's not doing it for the fun of doing. No when she's been like he shot her finger off. he killed a loved one. Who knows how fearful she is of him. So the bottom line is that we have to look at tiffany in this residual behavior. We have to look at it with compassion. I i was really surprised right. But i actually work in the criminal justice system and having various capacities for a lot of my life. I guess all the training that i received about domestic violence has made me more compassionate towards anything else. I just have a lot of empathy for her. I can't imagine saying what she saw in being. Okay again. I just feel sorry for her. A lot of my family is mad at her. I just can't make myself anchor. It with her at the end of the day. Jacob is still the father of her children and she's the one who's going to have to live with us and explain this to her kids so i can't imagine name about pressure personal. It'd be under that circumstance and we'll heather had compassion for tiffany's position many of the family members who were feeling patricia loss. The just could not take that position on themselves. They were hurt by tiffany's defensive jacob. Most of what i heard about through my family was just how upset. Everybody was tiffany for changing her story. And how it's set. Everybody was jacob for why. Because you know he. He tried to pretend why this wasn't him and that he was innocent and that he doesn't go all over town threatening people that he didn't shoot four people and with the audacity of that just really struck everybody just so obtuse. The deliberate about of him trying to claim innocence is ridiculous. Jacob's trial approached quickly and soon his fate would be in the hands of a jury. The trial actually happened in lightning speed for a murder trial. And what what. I can say that. I really appreciate about the way that seminal handle this and the way that gains county handled. This is that you know. They got visiting judge who had experience and murder trials to come into the trial. They got a special prosecutor. Who is actually was. The defense attorney in lubbock still had a lot of experience with felony violent crimes. The prosecutors plan for the trial began with painting jacob as dangerous threat that he ultimately was the even compared his actions to the shooters at columbine in one thousand nine hundred nine in more recently the orlando nightclub shootings two thousand sixteen. So that offensive like that. There's not back quickly and argue. That jacob did not have the firepower and body count for that type of comparison so in order to prove capital murder. The prosecution depend offer shootings as a connected chain of events. With sole purpose to kill so there were several testifying witnesses including tiffany herself and her testimony was emotional and according to the seminal sentinel in turn of events. Tiffany ultimately admitted that her husband was the one who not only shot patricia but started loading the gun again as she escaped in tiffany's testimony was really a relief for everybody but the next focus and question for onlookers was whether or not jacob would testify himself and the answer to that question was yes when jacob took the stand. He blamed his actions on concoction of beer tequila antidepressants which he said caused them to block out that particular night and he denied remembering the events of that evening and when it came to the shootings he again claimed his innocence. By saying quote. It wasn't me but the jury didn't buy jacob story. They convicted him of capital murder and he was sentenced immediately. Here's heather again. I knew he would be found guilty. But what i was really interested in was to find out what the sentencing would be and i was really happy with the life without parole. And if you're willing to shoot strangers and people that you are supposed to love in the streets or in a parking lot. I don't think it's safe for the public for you to be roaming around ever again. Following tickets conviction. He filed an appeal which was denied and while patricia rest assured knowing that jacobs behind bars. There are no winners here because they still don't have patricia. Heather only wishes patricia.

"Up being hospitalized but he survived but earners shelton the good samaritan who jacob shot in the head he didn't make it ernest had family. He had friends hit a life all taken away. Because of a drunken tantrum from a madman he made the selfless and heroic choice to help. A stranger and his life was taken. That's heartbreaking and sickening. He was just passing through on his way home to arkansas and was helping the owner to get this problem customer out and he ended up losing his life over. Meanwhile emergency workers had rush patricia to the hospital where she was in critical condition. Doctors were trying desperately to save her life and all her family could do at this. Point was wait and remain hopeful that she would pull through she was brought to the hospital in warwick put an eye senior and they had to scan her brain to see of her brain was still or not or she had suffered brain death. Unfortunately that is what happened. Patricia would not recover. The doctors who worked to save her life ultimately determined her head wounds. Were quote not survivable per ticket and ended up showing the day and when she was shot because brain does is legal deaths in texas a couple of days after that there were major from watch. The port just like that patricia was gone. Patricia's family struggles to cope with the pain of losing important matriarchal figure in this family restaurant owner miguel diaz stayed in the hospital for a couple of weeks and when he left kennedy breathing apparatus home with him which he would need. Throughout the duration of his recovery patricia entire family were dealing with this impossible mixture of emotions. And then there was tiffany. Who had been shot by her husband and watched him kill her step mom who is like her best friend. I feel awful for tiffany. Because she watched one person she loved shoot. Another person should love in the face directly in front of hers. You know. I can't imagine the level of trauma and she has continued to experience from this. There's so much pain so much suffering for white. Why did this happen. Heather has a theory. When i finally tried to wrap my head around. What jacobs done it just. It was hard to believe how he'd come to the point where he was willing to do this and willing to try to deprive his kids of their mom and depriving them of their grandmothers figure. I would not be surprised if in this situation when they were arguing. Tiffany told jacob. I'm leaving you. I'm going to go pack a bag and get the fuck out and he just lost it so other than having understanding for first survivors pop domestic violence and being continuing to be supportive. Even when that can be very frustrating is really the only thing we can do because this escalated this. This did not start with shooting for people in a parking lot or by the side of the road. It started inside. Somebody's home. Heather is right. This situation did not begin at the parking lot that night. This began inside tiffany and jacobs home. A pattern of dysfunction and abuse that progressively got worse in all likelihood. Jacob felt his grasp on tiffany. Slipping away tiffany threaten to leave. And jacob couldn't let that happen the questions at the horrible events of that night didn't stop here. This question of why patricia was another one. Heather theorizes that patricia kind and loving nature who willingness to help anyone under any circumstances ultimately put her in harm's way that night. I think that's one of the reasons that she ended up in the situation that i was because she just wanted to help people and she would do anything that anybody asked her she would give you the shirt off her back and i think shoe saw parts of herself and tiffany and so she was trying to help. Her jacob was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon attempted capital murder and a capital murder charge. He pled not guilty to the charges. And get this. He denied that it was him who had shot at all. These people and this was despite the fact that everyone in town knew who jacob was and had witnessed him perpetuate aspects of this crime and not to mention remember being shot. Tiffany drove directly to the police department and told them exactly what jacob done. I don't understand his thought process about that. Because you know these people and you know that they know you and we can sort of wrap our heads around. Why jacob would start denying. It was him who did these things. He's facing major charges serious jail time if convicted leaves a judge with two options life in prison or the death penalty. Jacob doesn't want that so he lies yes and as the weeks and months past. Patricia was forced with the daunting task of trying to pick up the pieces and adjusts to life without her patricia family mourned and processes tragedy together. Best they could. But as jacob's trial approached a rift would cause a fracture within this family in this was caused by the fact that tiffany changed position on all the events that transpired on the night. Patricia was killed by the trial by the time. The trial sam around year or so later she has started saying that. It wasn't jacob. jacob jacobsen. Shoot me jacob. Didn't do this when everybody in town knew absolutely that he did. There was no question about who done it. Not but jake was denying that it was him as well. Let's take a moment to digest. What heather is talking about. Tiffany was the one who watch shakeup shoot her stepmother patricia while sitting in the car with her and now she's defending her husband. The man who had done these rather atrocious things when tiffany started saying. Oh no it wasn't him. That really fractured her relationship with her dad. Because jimi lobster. Their relationship was not always perfect but they really cared about each other. And the fact that jacob did this in tiffany was standing by him. I think really hurts. Jimmy watch and remember. Jimmy was trying to help his daughter and son-in-law with their own personal issues. Jimmy can't ignore. The patricia is gone. Because of jacob and their family would never be the same again but before you judge tiffany. What she's doing here is very much textbook. When it comes to the behavior of domestic abuse victims so if you look at several cases where domestic abuse victims are tasked with testifying against their abusers. You often see them taking their side and it's just built in to these abusive patterns like these people are scared of their abusers.
"patricia" Discussed on The First Degree
"Right always looks perfect from however away or especially on social media so we've discussed domestic violence several times on our show since launching the first degree but on today's episode we're going to punctuate the unexpected and enforcing immigration 's that domestic violence has the ability to inflict as far as dysfunction and tiffany jacobs relationship. It was clear that the tension was compounding steadfastly and things ultimately reached a fever pitch and would definitely culminate on the afternoon of march fourth. Two thousand seventeen. The day itself began with a family barbecue at tiffany and jacob's house tiffany jacob patricia in a grandmother spent that saturday grilling in the backyard. This gathering had all the trappings of a chill spring day texas there was laughing there was grilling and there was beer-drinking but at around nine pm. Tiffany jacob patricia. In grandma decided ahead somewhere else to keep this party moving. They went to get a few drinks at a local watering hole. Called the parikh terrace restaurant. It's worth mentioning. That jake consumed a full twelve pack of beer prior to leaving his house in arriving at this restaurant so they all go but after they arrived patricia and grandma decide they're over it and they're tired so they took off and went home leaving tiffany jacob to mingle for themselves Well jacob tiffany gone to this restaurant slash bar kind of place in town. And i guess they had gone there for dinner and soon after they got there. They started arguing. We've all seen couples like this at bars and restaurants. It's uncomfortable to witness an alcohol exacerbates. The intensity of these rebel disputes. And as we know alcohol also eliminates logic and brings on hair trigger responses and there were some serious drinking going on this particular evening in fact according to the owners of this restaurant and jacob had ordered fifteen shots of tequila within a span of two hours jacob consumed most of them by the time the fighting began. The couple had been there for two hours which means they'd likely consumed a significant amount of alcohol. In fact the reason that tiffany and jacobs argument started is because jacob offered tiffany another drink but she turned it down so for whatever reason jacob did not like this at all and he began cursing tiffany and calling her names in front of all the patrons and staff. Tiffany walked out to the back patio of prekaz to smoke a cigarette. Jacob followed her and told her if she left him there that night he would quote unquote kill her. So jacob was becoming more and more enraged by this point all eyes and ears in this restaurant were on the two of them. Tiffany watch jacob become more and more intoxicated and she wanted to remove herself from the situation immediately and at some point during all this. Tiffany called patricia to come and get her and get her out of this situation because she knew that he might get violent at this point to be clear. We didn't hear anything. Specific about jacob being violent with tiffany in the past. But it's something you can infer based on frankly what happens next. I guess jayco was getting really ugly because the owner asked him to leave and he wouldn't leave in a random other person who just happened to be there. That night helped him hope. The owner removed jacob from the premises to clarify jacob getting so rowdy and imposing by this point that the owners of the restaurant wanted him gone but the owner who is forty six year olds. Miguel de as could not handle jacob on zone. Luckily a good samaritan a fifty one year old ernest shelton solve of the situation was getting out of hand stepped in to help me galvez the owner and the guy who was just passing through town. Get jacob out and at that time. He threatened them. Jacobson pivots his frustrations towards these two men. And he's hurling threats. At miguel diaz in in fact witnesses remember jacob walking out the door and saying the diaz by morning. You'll be dead man. Tiffany who was still present at this point was trying to neutralize the situation and stop it from escalating. She assured diaz and shelton. That jacob was just bluffing. But tiffany still wasn't gonna put up jacob's behavior and she also knows he has a history of getting behind the wheel while drunk. In fact jason has gotten to do is in the past so tiffany seizes an opportunity. It snags the keys jacobs truck. So he can't drive. And then she slips out of the restaurant and leave with her stepmom patricia who'd arrived to pick her up and just get out of there. And how brace yourselves because how things unfold from here on out are completely senseless shocking and honestly fucking terrifying so by this point. Tiffany had removed herself from this escalating situation. She left with patricia. Taking keys with her jacob is absolutely enraged by everything that's going on he's drunk and angry and petulant and on top of all of that he doesn't have a right home so he walks down main street and he ultimately enters this convenience store which is where he runs into a guy named joshua. So jacob doesn't know joshua he them up and says something. This guy. Convinces him to dr jacob home and while he was reluctant at first joshua eventually agrees so he takes jacob home which is about a five minute. Ride away from this convenience store and as far as the timeline of what happens next. The details are kind of mercury but at some point jacob makes it to the house he shows tiffany and gets this other set of keys and these are belonging to a white chevy suburban that the couple owns together so tiffany is not home at this point which means. She's still with her stepmom patricia somewhere. So jacob and tiffany do not cross paths at this time. Jacob gets in the chevy and he heads back to town okay. So we're seeing this if you visualize it. Yeah jacob and tiffany are have not crossed paths but they shall and probably will at some point right like things are escalating but either way at this point. It's approximately eleven forty pm. Jacob after taking the white chevy drives back to paribas restaurant and pulled into the parking lot. An prekas is where he got into this confrontation with miguel de as the owner in earnest. Shelton the bystander heats where he got into a fight with his wife tiffany he gets out of the car emerges from the vehicle in in his hand. He's a twenty two caliber springfield pistol. He begins waving this pistol angrily his head. So jacob is screaming and yelling for the owner of the restaurant miguel diaz to come outside and face him so this is some scary shit. We've got an angry drunk belligerent. Fucking asshole waving a gun in the air literally threatening the life of a restaurant owner who just threw a guy out for endangering his other patrons he didn't do anything to deserve this kind of threatening but due to the sheer terror of what might happen. Miguel de has his wife. Who ran the restaurant with him immediately. Grabbed the phone to call police. She called nine one one. They'll still at the restaurant was ernest. Shelton he was that good samaritan who earlier had helped as remove jacob from the restaurant and ernest came to miguel de as aid again and amidst the chaos the sharp blast of a gunshot reverberated in the parking lot. Ernie shelton who is just trying to help.

"The setting for today's case is seminal texas and the name seminal comes from the native americans who live in nearby oklahoma and the word means wild or people who live at a distance and it's the seat of gains county and according to the seminole sentinel which is the local newspaper it was the fourth safest place in texas as today's case unfolded our first degrees. Name is heather. Who says seminal is one of those places where everyone knows everyone. It's a small town around. Like seven thousand people. It's primarily a farming community mostly peanut farming relative to other voices large population of mennonites. There and those peanuts and mennonites are really the thing that that little town is known for and It kind of has the same problems that small rural places have which is a lot of grandchildren and a lot of drug issues. People tend to know each other. Or if you don't know somebody you know their dad really well or you know you play golf with their uncle. Today's case takes us back to march fourth of two thousand seventeen movies. Logan get out and fifty shades. Darker were in theaters in ed. Sheeran's shape of you and love on the brain at the top of the music charts and it was on the day of march fourth at heather of first degree received strange. Call from her mom who is asking about her cousin. Patricia was dog sitting for my mom at her house. She had gone to see my new little baby great nephew who had just been born and she was on her. She was driving back and she called me. Because people were posting praying for you praying for you all over patricia facebook page. None of us knew what was going on. We just knew something was wrong with patricia and eventually my cousin was able to figure out what has happened. She made my mom over onto the side of the road because she didn't know how she was going to react. And my mom ended up getting lost trying to get back on the highway when she was trying to call me. But i was sitting on my mom's couch watching them karadzic files actually and i got a call from mom and posit the news. Heather's mom shared left her shocked to the core. She told me. Patricia's been sean. The first thing. I could think to say was after all the things that she's been through she gets shot and now before we continue. We have to tell you a little more about patricia. As well as her relationship to her first degree. Heather past and present patricia was heather's cousin. She was fifty nine years old and worked as a healthcare provider. Which as we've seen particularly this past year is a profession. That takes a lot of empathy. Patience and compassion. Patricia was a wife a mother a stepmother a grandmother. You get the point. She was completely committed to her family but to give you the context needed. Push the story forward. We need to go back to the beginning. She was the one of the sweetest people that i knew. And she had been through a whole lot in her life so she was really just the most compassionate person She had dealt with a really serious drug addiction for a lot of her years. Patricia like so. Many americans struggled with a serious drug addiction. One that could have taken her life. If she had failed to get a hold of it but through sheer strength and determination she was able to overcome it when her sister passed away. I think is really when she decided she tried to turn her life around a lot before that but when she lost her sister she completely turned herself around in patricia. Really did turn it all around doing a full one eighty and when she was on the other side of her addiction she became the most fantastic mother stepmother partner that she could be so. Here's some more necessary contextual information. Patricia had a longtime partner and like most very very long relationships. They had their ups and downs her spouse jimmy marquez. They remained very close and she was always part of the family even when they were kind of on the out patricia and her husband jimmy had rocky periods where they would briefly split but the always found their way back to each other very much had a blended family. She had two sons and a daughter that were her biological kids and she also had multiple stepchildren was active in the lives of her family. She took care of her kids step. Kids and their kids to and she was particularly close with her stepdaughter. Tiffany gronick and tiffany was a mother as well to four children who she had had with her husband. Thirty-one-year-old jacob chronic. Jacob been born and raised in kansas before moving to seminole in two thousand nine jacob and tiffany were married and between then and two thousand seventeen. Their children were born as surprised. That would four kids. They welcomed any help they could get and based on what other shared. This family really looked after one. Another everything that patricia did was always done for the best interest of tiffany's children who patricia saw entreated her own grandkids despite not being blood related to them patricia. Jimmy tried to instill these types of ideals and tiffany and jacob. They raised their family but however over time it appeared. That jacob and tiffany's relationship adopted a rather recognizable archetype. They turned into this contentious makeup. Break type a couple. You know the awkward kind of couple that get into loud frequent public fights. They had really frequent problems with each other. And i know that tiffany's dad was frequently upset with both of them over their behavior in the way that they treated each other in the way that they behaved in front of his grandchildren. He was really not happy about the situation between them. And i don't think anybody else wherever it was just a really tense situation all right. So here's what we know. About jacob and tiffany there was infidelity on both sides of this marriage. Although the explicit specifics of these fares are kind of unclear needless to say these indiscretions they stoke the flames and fighting. Between this couple it was a tumultuous relationship that took a toll. Not only on tiffany jakub. But the rest of the family to including patricia. and tiffany's dad jimmy who found themselves having to intervene especially when these fights happened in front of the grandkids and that's not an uncommon thing to have children very young in this part of the country so with that many children. They probably started having children when they were barely legal. Adults doesn't immensely stressful situation for young couple. You'd have to imagine that being a young couple of four kids you know you're probably dealing with a decent amount of stress and this could burden even the strongest relationship at some point. Their relationship started the fracture. But my understanding is that there was maybe infidelity on both sides of that. And i think that there was some at least emotional of years son jacob side. But here's the thing when you look at jacob's facebook which is still active which is interesting. There's no sign of an unhappy couple to be seen at all. jacobs cover. Photo is a snap of his four kids his profile picture as a family photo of him. Tiffany and the children. And if you scroll down to his wall you can see that. He and tiffany would post these little flirty messages to each other on their facebook pages. You look back. that's the thing. Everything looks perfect on social media when the reality is anything but.

Signed by darren and shannon from evansville illinois and it gave them their email address so patricia them with the news and now darrin shannon are planning to visit grand cayman at some point as for the bottle. The dacosta family's planning to put their own note in the same bottle and send it back out to see what an incredible journey. It's here the second quarter edition of the journal of diving history magazine. It arrived in the mail just after the last show. This latest additions cover story was written by chris. Cole and it is about the divers who worked on the edgewater disaster. It was one of the worst maritime disasters in us history. I'll leave it at that and you can do some of your own research but it was a really interesting article. There's also an interview in the edition. Done by michael newdow with dick rakowski and he's dubbed. The father of nighthawks again. Some really interesting stuff. I highly recommend that you take a look at the historical diving. Society's website if you become a member you'll get the journal mail to you every quarter a pleasant surprise in your mailbox. I received an email from a friend a few weeks ago with the subject line serenity so who can't use a little serenity how about serenity now well it turns out that my friend was asked by our son to watch him cameras for a school project. These live cams were from the monterey bay aquarium so i went to the link and it took me to their landing page for nine different cameras. I'm not going to list them all right now. But you can peek. In on their penguins. Sea otters were moon jellies. There's even a camera for monterey bay itself personally. I like to observe my sealife while diving but these live cams from monterey bay aquarium can fill in and provide that little bit of serenity. Now here's something interesting. That came in from shearwater. You know the makers of the dive computers. They have a contest. It's going to be starting up. In may called the spring shopping spree and the winner will get four thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars shopping spree at the dive shop of their choice. And here's how it works if you purchase the shearwater in april or if you buy one in may you can register for the contest with their online portal with a proof of purchase. But you don't have to buy a computer to participate. You also be able to register by completing a short fifty word essay on why you like shearwater computers. The lucky winner will be selected at the end of may. And it's another great way to support your local dive shot. Thanks your water for doing this. And finally there was a short article from patty on april twentieth about their meeting with the maldivian government to confirm the protection for sharks. There was some speculation out there that the maldivian government might be lifting the shark fishing ban in their countries waters. Well this can't be good over ten years ago. Patty along with others helped to establish this current protection so the patty staff met with the moldavian ministry of fisheries marine reserves and agriculture's lead zaha wahid. Well here's some good news here at the meeting minister while he said that they were committed to sustainable and responsible management on april twentieth the ministry released a statement that said the maldives does not intend to permit a targeted shark. Fishing in the mouth. These great job. Patty in great job maldives for protecting these critical apex predators. Well that's it for wet notes. For

Lockwood story That's what have you learned part of the question. It's interesting well. I think it might make more sense when you do read the new novel. That is kind of the question that is addressed so the first section really is about The protagonist sort of leading this life inside the internet as if she's trapped inside the internet and the second half of the book is about her. Learning to be a pair of hands i would say is about carrying. It's it's about transforming yourself into some useful capable pair of hands that can vary things that can lift things thought in action that can hold so. That is what i would say to. And i i i think finding these these very small direct human ways to be useful that that are not small that move you know their way into the macro cosmos that become very large because you're applying them to to the things that are around you and then they expand.

How the media treats parents of mass shooting victims
"So it's been a horrific week. It's actually been a horrific year for gun. Violence in this country has been assertive. Perception that mass shootings and gun violence in america took a pause during the pandemic. That's absolutely not true. We're good violence. Killed twenty thousand americans last year more than any other year and at least two decades so this is a crisis that goes on and on and on there are a lot of people looking at solutions on the political front and in terms of changes in laws. But there's also a lot to be done in terms of thinking how the media covers gun violence in this country and how it can do better and how it should do better. I'm thrilled to be joined by manuel patricia. Oliver welcome to you both. Thank you for having us and you. It's great to have you here. You both found yourself in the center of the gun debate after your son. Joaquin was among seventeen people. Who died at margaret stoneman. Douglas in parkland florida in february of two thousand eighteen. Let me first ask you both. How did you end up in parkland in parkland win. Did you move there. We moved there with here a me from venezuela with eighteen years ago and we decided to move your of schools so you move for because you wanted a school for joaquin. Yeah for for both yet. Better life according life for them was offering that in so did he go to. He went to public elementary schools and then to Marjory stoneman douglas. Exactly we are. We moved here because they the rating off those schools were really good. They were all a loss. Africaine started here an spree k. Because he was three years old so into every single public school era.
Finding Your Compliment
"It's interesting beyond for four years right because you hear all these great ideas from people is that if they're execute upon change the world a very serious way. I always use the example of spacex rate. How many people before you on. Musk thought of reusable spaceship. Probably a lot. But how many actually get out there and execute upon it and build thing not that many and so you know patricia club. It's really a mindset shift. Right rather than sitting around and pontificating about ideas we really focus on. How do you put those ideas into action. You know even if it's something as small as bringing your product or your service to the farmers market and just selling it to people getting it in people's hands that's what we want to encourage this club so it part of getting started From our commerce conversation earlier. Excuse me you told me that Baylor entrepreneurship club engages in things like different focus groups that are skill specific. Is that right correct. Yes so what does that look like. Yeah what it really looks like. His peer to peer mentor ship. Where you have people building interpersonal relationships with others who have complementary skill sets to them. You one thing. I really believe in as being a specialist. Not a generalist You know it's been my experience that if you're a generalist you're not that competitive right and so as a special shoe is for people who Compliment your abilities and skills. That's what our mentor. Ship program is really about so it. It's more While it is developing different skills it's also networking opportunity correct absolutely. Yeah and i think that's important too because nicot said you're a specialist. I mean you are the the the leader of what you do. So i always think about mario and luigi do you remember. Playing mario mario was always good at a lot of different things but luigi was able to jump the highest. I often went with luigi for some tasks. Because i needed to jump higher than mario is able to know. And i mean it's it's purely fact like i love luigi because of that because he was able to differentiate himself and set himself apart. But if you can't jump that high that's no problem right around your self with people who can And i think they would entrepreneurship club. And wouldn't nick is doing is creating a great networking opportunity for students. Who may be good at one thing to find others who compliment them so for example In a previous episode. Talk with or talked with doria and i am a awful content creator. My social media is the worst But i would love to have somebody like doria on my team and we do. Have somebody like dairy honor team. Gray smith who is a killer content creator and so that's what nick's talking about and that's why it's important to have these types of clubs because he can find people who compliment yourself and It really helps take your business near venture the next

Guanajuato And Quertaro
"Moon guidebook author. Julia joins us now in an interview. We recorded prior to the kobe outbreak. One reason i haven't explored mexico as much as i'd like to. Maybe because i have a hard time pronouncing the pounds. But i think three towns near mexico city that really are like household words for anybody who loves exploring. Mexico are what those three towns. There's semi i n de guanajuato and kenneth at all and you could rent a car and being these towns. What a couple of hours. Yeah it's probably about two and a half to three hours to cut it that. Oh that's the closest san miguel. You're looking at probably about four hours to get there from mexico. City you can hop in a bus doesn't really nice comfortable bus lines or you could rent a car to. Would you do it. If you're flying into mexico city to get to these towns you know. I would take the bus. There are actually buses that come right out of the airport in mexico city to get at that oh and for their. It's you know striking distance to san miguel. So it's it's pretty easy to get around by bus. There's lots of great bus lines. They make it convenient so julie just so we can kind of get our bearings. Give me a quick thumbnail. Sketch of the three towns. Well going to what those starting with. That is a university town with a beautiful colonial central. San miguel day in day is a very laid-back. Small town that also has a very rich history and at the is a medium sized city where you'll get a mix of a lot of different things some business and a beautiful centro also plays really worth visiting julia. If you had to do your sightseeing before you started your actual bake ation. We'll be on your list. What are the top two or three things you gotta see in this town. Well i would start by wandering around the plazas and looking at all of the churches and baroque mansions throughout the central. One place worth visiting. Is the candidate that oh art museum. It's housed in an augustinian convent from the seventeenth century. So the building itself makes it worth a visit but they also have very interesting contemporary work by mexican artists other local artists. So i would definitely put that on my list in between to the market. The makoto crews would you find Artisanal things that come in from the countryside is at a farmers market. What would you be wondering through there. It's mostly a food marquette. And i really recommend visiting it because it gives you a very unique opportunity to wander through a really big bustling city market that again is not touristy at all so you're really getting a glimpse in mexican culture but you're not You know there's other people with their cameras out you feel like you're really getting an authentic experience there but it's also very clean and friendly and easy to navigate. It's not as overwhelming some of the big markets in mexico city say but it has a very similar atmosphere so i think it's a really cool place. I love visiting that. I mean in get at the dell in when you're there wandering through that market and just a little bit hungry. What are some of the regional. Specialties you look forward to trying well. One thing that is very typical of kenneth at o. Are gore dita's which is a big round. Corn cake flattened by hand. And then it's cooked on a griddle and it's usually stuffed with something like pork or she's no prickly pear cactus which is very popular to eat in whole area because the grow everywhere negro really the cactus pear do you call it Yeah and it's called the in mexico tuna. Yes and when you see tune on the menu. It's does not. Tuna fish actually refers to prickly pear fruit. Which is very popular especially in this region because these Cactuses grow everywhere. Wild

How Sephora is tackling racial bias in retail
"Sephora. Just released a study on racial bias in retail. This was really cool because they partnered with four academics who very well known in this world doctor. Cassie pittman cleaner. Dr david crockett. Witnessing fowler and dr patricia raspberry and so sephora like new they had to bring in the big guns to help them study this back in nineteen. They have also in the spotlight for anyone who didn't know they've been in the news two four about some some stuff that was why the study was initiated. Because they knew they had issues in this with both the retail associates and their customers Profiled so so. I went to a presentation that gave showing us the highlights of the research at just a couple of things. I wanna point out. But i'm going to link to. They gave us this little booklet with more of the highlights at a leg to on the blog. So you can look into this. Because i think a lot of other retailers or if you work in beauty or even if you're shopper which she while are of beauty there's things that you can take away from this. That are interesting and so far is gonna Going to work on some stuff. But here's the highlight so three and four retail. Shoppers feels to seventy four percent of people. Feel that the marketing failed to showcase a diverse range of skin tones body types hair textures. So even though we've just been talking about there's been movement in the last couple years clearly. Not everybody feels that they are being spoken to in the beauty world and in fact black. Shoppers are three times more likely to feel like this than white shoppers. They also looked at all. Shoppers of colors not just black and white But in addition to locate shoppers they looked at the associates the retailers and what was going on there and a lot of the retailers talked about a lack of training to help people diverse background. So when someone walks in the store and have a hair type different than yours if you're the retail associate. You're like nobody gave me training on how to do this. The other thing. They didn't seem to get training on was implicit bias. Only forty percent of retail employees surveyed reported having unconscious bias training. Now that might sound familiar to you because remember back in two episode to forty three. We had dr susan taylor on. She's a dermatologist. And she was talking about how everybody at u. penn which is where she works was getting this implicit bias. Training for doctors. Obviously retail associates needs the same type of thing. You look at a shopper. You think things regardless of your race it informs the way you interact with that shopper and retail associates want this training so sephora actually has made a pledge that by the end of the year one hundred percent of all new employees will had implicit bias training which i think is using is really
The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself
"Welcome to untangle so happy to have you here today. Thank you pitcher. Share happy to be here. The i love your work. You've done such incredible stuff. And i just for our audience. I just think this first paragraph in your book was so interesting it starts like this in this incredibly competitive society of ours. How many of us truly feel good about ourselves. It seems like such a fleeting thing feeling good especially as we need to feel special or above average to feel worthy anything else. Seems like a failure. Tell me a little bit about that. And what led you to really do this. Work on self compassion. Yes so i started practicing self compassion. When i started learning mindfulness actually my last year in graduate school. Uc berkeley a man. I did two years post doctoral. Study with one of the country's leading self esteem racers. And i started really becoming familiar with all the research. Showing the downsides of self esteem. It's not a downside of having high self esteem but of pursuing it trying to get it the shenanigans. We go through trying to go good about ourselves compared to others and so i kind of thought that was practicing self compassion and seeing the incredible benefits my personal life and i just thought this is such a healthier way to think about. How did we late yourself. Positively themselves esteem. so that's kind of really would give me the. You might say that confidence to actually start researching self passion. But what's wrong with self esteem. So many parents today want their children to have self esteem and self competence. Tell us a little bit about the difference between self esteem and self compassion right. So there's absolutely nothing wrong with self esteem feeling. You're a person of worth in value. And we definitely want people have a sense of high worth as opposed to 'having themselves and and that's the wellbeing goes about question really. The problem is how people go about getting their high self esteem so for most people s steam involves a process of social comparison. Right so i mean again. If i said patricia your podcast yet savage. How would you feel. You probably feel good about that. Evaluation right asked this kind of the way. The system is stacked against us. We all have to feel average at least in those areas that are important to us to feel like that's just like baseline minimum self esteem. And so we're always comparing ourselves to others. If someone else does something better than we do. We often feel inadequate comparison. The really big problem with self esteem. as it tends to be contingent in other words we only have self esteem roomy succeed. We lose it when we fail so when things are going well for sure we lacquer cells we feel we have value but what happens when we fail. We blow that big job assignment or get rejected soon as fail ourselves esteemed desserts us which is actually precisely when we need that. Self confidence. The most self compassion. It's not about judging yourself positively. It's not saying. I'm a good person. Or i'm better than other people i most great is just about relating to yourself kindly so there is a sense of self worth inheritance self compassion but self worth comes from just being a glide human being where the like all other flawed human beings as opposed in necessarily succeeding or on being better than others. So you're done research showing the sense of self worth linked to self compassion as much more stable over time than just a simple self-worth judging yourself positively but how did we get in this culture to a place where we are so critical of ourselves and where we need to study something like self compassion where it's not a natural characteristic. I'm not convinced that it's just a western cultural phenomena. I mean i think definitely hard in the west because there's so much pressure to compete and succeed. Same thing in east asian cultures with as a lot of pressure to succeed and compete. But i also think there are some natural reasons while we tend to our jump to solve criticism immediately a mess. Basically that when we feel inadequate in some way or we fail at something we feel threatened and when we feel threatened we naturally have the threat. Defense response right. We want to attack the situation. Get rid of the problems of. You'll safe again. Unfortunately when the problem is ourselves when we attack the threat we actually attack ourselves. So i really do. Think at some level our tendency to to be self-critical is really desire to keep ourselves safe.
Rejoining the Paris Agreement of 2015
"Last month december. Two thousand twenty. The paris agreement celebrated its fifth anniversary. Unfortunately the united states of america really wasn't part of the celebration given our withdraw effective in november of two thousand and twenty two thousand and fifteen seem so long ago and the world in the united states has changed so much since then from what has been reported we are poised to rejoin the paris agreement with the transition to president biden's administration wonder just how easy it is to rejoin. I hope it's as easy to rejoin as it was to withdraw. So what exactly is the paris agreement and why is it so important. I'm a little embarrassed to say that. I really didn't know that much about it. Which meant i needed to understand. Is treaty a lot more first off. Yes it is a treaty a legally binding international treaty that was executed in paris on december twelfth. Two thousand and fifteen now. It was executed by the parties of the united nations framework convention on climate. Change or you an fcc now the un fcc was established in one thousand nine hundred ninety two and it was originally based in geneva switzerland since nine hundred ninety five is located in bonn germany. It has a staff of four hundred and fifty people from over one hundred countries. The executive secretary of the un fcc is patricia. Espinosa of mexico. And she is held this position since two thousand and sixteen if you go to the un fcc website you can click on the paris agreement tab at the top from there you can view a short two minute video about the agreement. You can also access the actual agreement. Which is what i did. It's not a huge document. It's only twenty five pages long and consists of twenty nine articles. Article two sets the goal specifically article two paragraph one ace states the agreement in enhancing the implementation of the convention including ex objectives aims to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change in the context of sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty including by holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below two degrees celsius above pre industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to one point five degrees centigrade above pre industrial levels article. You also states that we need to do this. In a way that does not threaten food. Production and making finance flow supporting low greenhouse emission gas and climate resistant development. The cornerstone article says that this agreement will be implemented to reflect equity and the principles of common but differentiated responsibilities based on national circumstances. Now that's pretty powerful to me. That means wealthy. Powerful nations should be the leaders. The treaty works on five year cycles. And we just completed the first cycle now in this first cycle the country's established what is called their nationally determined contributions or nbc's and that's what each nation is committing to do to reduce global warming. You can actually go. To the registry of nbc's it states that one hundred ninety countries have submitted their first nbc including the united states. Although that first one was submitted. September second two thousand and sixteen and at eight parties have already submitted their second. The united states go back then was to be seventeen percent below two thousand five emissions by twenty twenty and twenty six to twenty eight percent below the two thousand and five emissions by twenty twenty five it stated that are targets were fair but ambitious. I think the overarching theme of the agreement was that we were all in this together. Developed countries have to help developing countries. Everyone has to play their part. Perhaps this is the idea that we're all in this together is why the. Us gave notice to the secretary. General of the united nations that the usa would withdraw and he gave that notice on november. Fourth two thousand and nineteen with the effective withdrawal date of four november. Two thousand and twenty. How ironic or dubious that. This date was right around our presidential election. I guess the good news is we haven't been gone that long and we can again be a part of this more good news. Is that for the first time. In two thousand and twenty. The un climate conference started to have a dialogue about the ocean and in twenty twenty. One there is a push to get ocean-based climate solutions into the paris agreement. Not so good news. However is that the international maritime organization. Or i am oh who represent the shipping industry is backtracking on their commitments to put this into context the shipping industry emit as much greenhouse gas gases as the sixth largest countries emissions. So it's not trivial. So how close out this segment again. By stating that. I am encouraged with the very real aspect that the united states will again rejoin the paris agreement and we will renew our commitment towards addressing climate. Change
Pablo Escobar's Hippos Are Out of Control
"A couple of years ago. I read a novella called river of teeth by sarah gaily. The concept of the story is based on a real world event. That almost happened smack. In the early twentieth century a bill was proposed in the us house of representatives and informally supported by theodore roosevelt. The us should import hippopotamuses from africa to the swamp lands of the gulf coast and breed them as an alternative meat source for americans basically starting a new industry in the us of hill. Ranching as you know this proposal never came to be but gala novella now collected into a volume with a sequel and some other stories under the title american hippo imagines magic in alternative history where this did happen only set fifty years earlier. You get kind of gulf coast cowboys on hippos tape story. It's great loved it. I highly recommend it. Or if you just wanna dig more into the facts. I put link in the show notes to a long read on the history of the hippo proposal by john. Mouallem will the reason i bring. This up is because americans in the early twentieth century. Were not the only ones with dreams of becoming hbo ranchers decades later pablo escobar would also get into the hippo game importing four of them to live on his estate in columbia and now forty some years later they have bread and multiplied and are spreading all over the wetlands of north bogo. Talk causing mayhem. Consternation and some real concerns for the region. Scientists say this now invasive species is competing with native wildlife polluting local waterways attacking humans and they project will grow in number two fifteen hundred hippos by twenty forty at that point the scientists say they will be nearly impossible to control their environmental impacts will be irreversible but never mind controlling fifteen hundred hippos. How do you control a dozen or even just one. That's not like you can just google it you know. In colombian officials are not hippopotamus experts and there are unique challenges levied upon this specific situation. I quoting the washington post in their natural habitat. Hippos spend the long dry season crowded into waterways shrunk to puddles. They're vulnerable to disease and predation not to mention one. Another as bad tempers but tropical columbia is hippo paradise. Environmental agency researcher david vary lopez said rain is abundant food is plentiful and they're no carnivores large enough to pose a threat. The animals spend five hours a day grazing on grasses and the rest of their time basking in the cool waters of the magdalena and surrounding lakes and quotes report from columbia not being the hippos natural habitat having in effect on the hippos behavior it also affects the surrounding communities impression of the hippos. The officials tasked with dismantling escobar's estate back in the ninety s. Weren't sure what to do with the one male and three female hippos so they just let them roam instead of sending them to a zoo with his other animals and mostly they did that because the hippos were massive and aggressive no one really wanted to approach them so we'll get the harm be and letting them go well. Kenyans and other african communities with native hippo populations could tell you a whole heck of a lot. You've got hippos from each sex so they can breathe for one and they're also hugely destructive to the environment into other animals. Hippos killed more humans each year than other large mammal. But when you don't grow up around hippos you don't necessarily know that so the hippos have become something of a mascot and columbia. According again gift shops in nearby puerto trail info sell hippo keychains and t shirts at the amusement park that was built on the site of escobar's former pleasure palace. Visitors can tour the lake where several dozen hippos now live occasionally one will plot into a nearby community looking as blase as a shopper on his way to the grocery store the hippopotamuses. The town pets resident claudia. Patricia camacho told the local news in two thousand eighteen. You could say that he now takes to the streets as if it were his own and quote but the hippos aren't as friendly as they may look on t shirts. They terrorize farms and hurt residents at times. The government has ordered the hippos to be shot on sight but there's been pushback from animal rights organizations and local residents so then they tried putting the hippos in a pin but and this is one of the mini quotes from this article. That honestly sounds straight hundred jurassic park. Etcheverry said i didn't know they could jump hikes so then they tried big pens with high enough walls that the hippos can't jump onto them. They've also been focused on trying to prevent them from breeding by cuisine. And then castrating the males. They've been through a steep hippo anatomy learning curve on that front though. Not even being sure where to look. For the animals external reproductive organs turns out. It's a bit complicated. They finally got a system of castration down. But it's costly and complicated so they can only do about one year but the estimates are that the population grows ten percent a year and apart from the bodily harm humans and the destruction of farms the hippos as they multiply host of other problems quoting again. A twenty twenty study of hippo inhabited lakes found that nutrients from the animal's feces were fuelling huge. Plumes of area an algae. These intern reduced the oxygen content of the water. Making it toxic to fish.

It's beautiful to see a poet that you love continue to challenge themselves and really upped the ante themselves with every palm at every collection. Now you see coming out but as Patricia 's rigor rises I never feel like she's leaving behind. The people who were poems truly for it becomes more intellectual becomes is more complex and more curious but at the center of her poems. I feel like our poems that are reaching back for a community that I think maybe the structure of poetry's maybe sometimes sometimes forgets about these out and also she made me want to be a formula's you know as a spoken word poet. I used to be like fuck form. That's like what the people that I'd say that I can't right do and shit like what the fuck is a sustained into me and then put your Smith Forum is like how you get good and I was like wait what you say right.

"So Dame Patricia, I want to start by talking to you about your absolute passion. Because of course, you are known full movies on television, very much. But it seems to me that your absolute passion is still the stages that a fist agent. Well, say tourists the test really that's where you learn your job, if you think of quite a number of feted successful television actors that basic training has been in Santa and when it works that is nothing like it, the immediate exchange of an imaginative imagined experience with a live audience. There's nothing like it s- quite wonderful. Do you think it changes you as an actor if you if you were to come into your acting career and maybe? Primarily trained in front of a camera compare that to someone who has had a lot of stage training. Does it change the way that you approach the craft? Well, you require really a different technique for television of film, the new full Santa, you have to project in a theater, even though you may be playing an intimate scene. You've got to find out how it can hit the little man on the back row and yet preserve the truth of chill playing, and taking back a little bit first because I'd like to know how you came to be in a career on the stage, you grew up in Cheshire. And this would have been during the second World War. I imagined that at that time a career in the performing arts wouldn't have been shall we say the most obvious choice headed it'll come about. You. I don't know. I over say the kicking and screaming. I've face my destiny I grew up in a family, the loved there, and I lived in a wonderful town called Birkenhead, which had a quite marvelous musical the owed music wherever you would have a list of tons. And I mean, some of the great comedians, which I saw I saw some of the greats and they took thirty years to perfect their act and they were going around the country doing twice nightly may be, and then moving on testing themselves against a live audience. And so I used to as quite a small child here. My mother and father talking about the theater, they went to. And my mother took me to my first. Don't pro lab. O M. She took me to my first Gilbert, Sullivan and one just loved it all, but I have no intention whatsoever of going on the wicked stage. My intention was to teach this wonderful English language which I grew to love in composition. And then when I was at school, we used to learn great chunks of boat dri, some of which I can still remember. But I thought it was all part of education, you know, reading writing arithmetic history, geography, sing a song do a don's recite to poem player, part, all part of this wonderful discovery. But of course it's it. It's really the people who are your mentors who spot a seed of something in you and not as shit. And then you have to begin to take it seriously yourself that mentor that you speak of their I'm assuming you're referring to the academic Edmund college. Well eventually, but, I mean, my first mentor, always, my mother, not that she was in any way push shaved Seattle. Mom. I mean you didn't do that sort of thing when I came from, you know, and you were never told at I came from the, you had anything really special in case you got a swollen head. Did you feel as if you had something special though? I didn't think of it in that way, I was one of the very few people willing to give up my serves Delongchamps to study. The, the recitation of, of lyric poetry sonnet at pick Shakespeare improvise Asian. And so it was all going on behind my back. And then, of course, you know, my great one for recognizing the signs, I think the red trickle in life is spotting the opportunities and the great skill is choosing the right ones. Let's Volvo would slightly, because you eventually, of course, made your way to the stage at the West End, you made your London debut when you got up on stage at the West End full the first time, of course unmistakably this is now you'll career your own the stage. Did you feel as if you've made it never, you're never feel as you've made it made what I have considerable repertory experience. There were repertory companies all over the country, and that's where you begin and make mistakes. And observe the more experience players. The great tragedy now. Is that those attract companies no longer exist? You would be part of a group of people who were there for twelve months, two years, three years, and I had an open invitation to audition for the Liverpool playhouse and finally, took a deep breath and went down nor dishes. And, and I thought if I'm not offered a job as an unpaid assistant stage manager. Then that's the writing on the wall. That says it I'm not good enough, but I was off the job. And then I trained further at a drums, school is low Vicks air to school that it prestigious and then began to. Anna living. I always swore the device. Didn't earn a decent living within four years. I would pack to in. Well, thankfully, you didn't. And thank you hit this. Thank you. But tell me it's it is always tempting to look back at something, whether it's, it's fear or any sort of performing ARA and say, oh, it used to be so much better than it is today. But you of course, you do still go to the theater, very often, you're still playing roles in the theatre often I'm JoAnne, busman's holiday, very much like to see I'm always amazed that up there doing it. You know, when I see someone like McKellen, or David Suchet will Judi Dench, or I mean, this country is full of wonderful actors, I wanna talk about your leap to Broadway. You did that in nineteen sixty six with a play by Roja Milner, and it was titled, how's the world tree? Eating you now the review in the New York Times, it was by Walter it opened with this line. The new comedy at the music box is yet another British import and before it goes back to of its players should be captured and kept, so the theater review of the New York Times thought he should keep you on Broadway that you weren't allowed to go back to the West End, that's a fairly promising start isn't it? It was very exciting. It was very exciting play which began life at the hamster theatre club. A small theater up near Swiss cottage. And then it transferred to the Altes theater, then it transferred from the arts there to, to Wyndhams as small and very good American management, soit and took three of us across to Broadway. And so that was, my Deb, you he was feted generous to me while to Kerr. And he was very important critic, of course, New York Times. Absolutely you and yet with digits certainly even now but certainly back then as well. What was it like they're making the lead into Broadway because you were coming from a coach like the West End which has its own very rich, traditions, and Britain has its own? Very, very well functioning, thriving theater industry, then to make the leap into Broadway. One imagines that it must have been a very different. Coach did you feel as if you perhaps, the Dame Patricia Rutledge touching down on Broadway inside a spaceship getting off onto the strange new planet. Well, there was so much to take in, but it was so exciting but at the heart of it all. You do your job. I mean you don't alter performance because you're in New York, you tell the story and adhere to the character or characters in this case, the with three different characters I played as you were. When you first started to explore the play I enjoyed it very much. Did you find that there's a substantial difference between the styles of acting a lotta people say, look on the American stage people act this way things, more exaggerated? It's all very, very different. Whereas the certainly the rhythm of performance seems to be different here in London. You can have a few pregnant pauses along the way you can allow the audience to pick up on what's being said, simply through a polls in a sentence, someway whereas in American humor, in American writing that might not be quite the same, did you pick up on those subtle differences, as well? I think with regard. Comedy. The American audience is required to be spelled out rather, I think we're subtler really and sometimes an American audience will not grasp the idoney of a character or a situation, but the wonderful thing about American audiences is the warmth of anticipation when they come into a theater, they're determined that they're going to have a good experience and they're going to enjoy the evening, and that you can almost taste it. I completely agree with that you are, of course, most closely associated with television acting, and there is you'll most famous role highs Bukeye, but that didn't come until. The nineteen nineties. I just wanna talk about your initial foray into television because initially you weren't attached to any long-term series for quite a long time. It was only that long term commitment that came later in your career. What was it about television that drew you to that form of craft I can only imagine that at that point back in the early days of, of your career, the idea of a theater actor acting on television Mata, being quite different. A lot of theater actors didn't really take such a kind of you to the medium of television. It's good writing on response to good writing television. Of course, began to give a -tunities wider opportunities to actors who'd spent the major part of their careers in theater. It was a medium. That you have to address. I did take Paul quite early on in some episodes of Coronation Street, and Olen knew was that I didn't want to get caught up in that forever. With something about the, the process of acting in a soap opera that made you think not quite right as other adventures to have more interesting really. But it was nice to be asked, and I did three episodes, then departed. I'm not fortunate enough to of ever taken a role in a soap opera. I mean, there's still time in my career, maybe I'll get to that point at some point, but my understanding is that acting in a soap opera. The metabolism full soap opera acting is actually quite fierce. And we often sort of looked down upon the soap opera but the craft and the effort involved in, in making production lack of soot, Parise act quite enormous and the discipline, you know, you have to shape you'll life round the requirements of rehearsal and presentation, but I didn't want to get stuck forever at goes for keeping up appearances as well. Talk to me about Victoria, would I because before highs in the UK, there was kitty and your your participation in Victoria wood as seen on TV that series. Twenty-one who knows you first and foremost as hyacinth bouquet. They might be surprised at just how we could say abrupt maybe blunt. But how Roches a character kitty was. How does he test? Desk. She was good test. She was great ask up -solutely, but somehow Cutie being expressed by Dame, Patricia Rutledge. She doesn't come across as grotesque. She does to me. I can't show. Yes. I was terrified of that. They were forty minute monologues. By this ridiculous woman who'd become an overnight celebrity because she'd walk the penance in slingbacks or something in the interest of mental health, very dangerous stuff. But I remember I was terrified because they went out live, I was testing new comic material in front of a live audience for the first time. I mean on the whole, you know, where the major laughs should come, but the always surprises, and Victoria used to find me hiding in the wardrobe barrier. You know, reluctant to go out to the studio and she'd say, come on, they're all waiting for you. So, but. Very skillful written stuff. I mean, I think with that kind of comedy, and with the famous lady. We're going to talk about spos-. I think you paint with post colors, they are larger the knife. And so you've got to take that risk really risk. It's what it's about risk. Speaking of risk a lot of people who can watch those models kitties monologues. They're easily accessible people can relive them, but a lot of people weren't understand to appreciate that. They were done live. There was a lot of risk involved just the making. This was miserable. I was glad she didn't write and emo- for me. I think I begged not to really. Oh, you make make quite nervous looking back. I'm thinking about it all. Nevertheless, there is something much more intimate about television isn't there because at the theater people have really made an evening to come out and watch you coming into your environment theater. Whereas with television your being invited into their way are coming into the city in Rome's invading their homes, which is why people off from. St. think they can be very familiar with you. Tell me about the segue from kitty into hyacinth. It does seem like a bit of a natural progression. When we talk about it. I didn't think of it like that at all. I done some of the wonderful Alan Bennett monologues, which he had written for me. And I remember when Victoria approach me about playing the kitty row. And she sent me some scripts, and I got in touch with Allen and said that died been offered. The he said, is it funny? Are they funny? And I said, yes, I think they are in strange kind of way. And he said, well, do them then..

"patricia" Discussed on Patty Has a Gun: The Life and Crimes of Patricia Hearst
"Yes, the Patty Hearst story is bizarre by It is in a way in keeping with the general craziness that loose afflicting the United States in the sphere. The question that makes this case fascinating to people all these years later is a simple one view Patti, really join in with her kidnappers were which she Co. were. Welcome This is party has a gun boat life and crimes of Patricia Hurst. The podcast that takes you back to the 1970s and one of the most bizarre crimes in American history. I'm Brian Stelter and I'm joined by Jeffrey Toobin CNN's chief legal analyst. The author of American heiress and the executive producer of CNN's New series. The radical story of Patty, Hearst. We are going back to the 70s our first episode talking about the kidnapping, the night of February fourth 1974 But first, take us back to that time. The time of Watergate, the time of you tell us this was the great revelation to me of writing this book and working on this series which was how crazy the 1970s were. You know, I was a kid, So I didn't have many first 10 memories of sort of the broader world. I was will always in kid world. And one of the shocking shocking things to me about the 1970s was what a wreck the United States was. Let me give you one statistic, which is the one that I think is the single most bizarre in my book in the early and mid 1970s There were nearly two thousand political bombings a year in the United States at one minute before one o'clock this morning, the switchboard at the Capitol received a phone call. A man's lawyer, said a bomb would go off in the building and a half. Our at one thirty in the morning, it did as it was a violent explosion ripped off doors and nearby conference rooms. There was alarm for a time that other bombs might still be hidden inside the capital. There were several every week in California alone. When think about how we react to political bombings today, It was just a time of incredible tunnel. Nino often these bombings were not designed to cause casualties So you know, but still, you know, they were power plants. They were in post offices. They were at government offices the late at night. The sometimes not late at night. And that gives you some idea of the chaos in the United States. But that was just the beginning. What about the the energy crisis, where you know gas lines were everywhere? We had laundered used dartboard walk on the morning. New. Dan on the and for a three four five hours until you ran out of gasoline Watergate where we had the first presidential resignation, which was unfolding Justice at the time of the Patty Hearst drama, southern persons were indicted. Today We're trying to cover up the Watergate scandal. The accused in booted all four budgeted Nixon's former top advisers, the four men who at one time were closest to Mr Nixon and held the positions of highest trust you had other terrible cult stories, said the Manson story was late '60s but you had Jim Jones, The it from the People's Temple who the mass suicide and Guyana, which was in the late seventies. All of this was unfolding at the same time. So and the epicenter of the craziness was the Bay Area of of California where this story unfolded. So yes, the Patty Hearst story is bizarre by it is in a way in keeping with the general craziness that was affecting the United's. Dates in this period, This was also in some ways the beginning of a celebrity culture. Was it not? That's going to be a factor. And you know you as a media reporter? The EU will appreciate how different the media environment was that, you know, one of the things that people used to say about how highly publicized the Patty Hearst trial was. So the Patty Hearst case was, was they would say, you know, she was on the cover of Newsweek seven times. Now. Today people would say, What's Newsweek and what's a cover? But still that illustrates just how much attention There was. But I think you know, Yes, there was the beginning of the celebrity culture and the public fixation with big cases in big trials, but he was a smaller media environment. One reason we could have two thousand bombings a year without the country falling apart is there was no cable news to cover 24/7. There was no Internet. You had a newspaper. The came out once in the morning. You had a network news. You had local news A by, you know net. Work news consisted of just the Today Show Good Morning America started a nineteen 75 and the three evening newscasts too. So yes, There was a lot of media attention. But the media as a universe was a lot smaller than it is today leader when ask you how the news actually broke about Patty Hearst. But first had it actually go down on February fourth. This is in Berkeley, California. She's in her apartment. And then what? She was a sophomore at Berkeley at the University of California. She was living with her boyfriend. Steven, we'd who is a graduate student in philosophy, And they had an apartment on the ground floor of a nice, but not extravagant building close to the Berkeley campus and right around 9 o'clock. Stephen and Patricia were watching. Television was a show with Bill Bixby emptied them blanking on the name of the show at the moment. And they got a knock on the door and there was a woman there who said, Oh, I'm sorry. I I think I may have bumped into your car and Steven weed. Opened the door a little wider, and the woman and two men knocked their way into the room and their names were Angela Atwood Bill Harris and Donald the freeze who later took the nom de guerre General Field Marshal seemed cute when they were the members of a group that called themselves very small bazaar group called the Symbian ease Liberation Army. They also a is seeking the alliance. All groups in this outbreak were poses the present system and its government calls on them to unite into a fighting force. Wilted divides the slogan of the SLA. They'll To the ice has done sect. Praise on the life of the people. They knocked down the door, they hid Steven. We'd on the head with the SAP, which is a like a a felt covered weapon. He fled, he fled out the back door, which turns out to be significant. Patricia is gathered up and Bill Harris puts her on her shoulder Putzer and tries to put her in the trunk of his car, which he had backed into the driveway. Another member of their group. Was was waiting to drive them away. There were two other cars that had set up by the House. He lifted the trunk, But the trunk Feld closed. So he had to put Patricia down to reopen the trunk at which time she fled you, she ran away. He had to go tackle her. But ultimately, he put her into the trunk in the other car was a woman named Nancy linked Perry, who saw some students who were studying next door for a biochemistry exam in a different student apartment Nancy, Ling Perry, saw them come out onto the balcony in opened up with a gun shooting at them. Donald the freeze also shot at that. There was this incredible melee But they managed to drive off when they turned the corner a Berkeley police officer stopped the first of the three cars There were there was a three-car caravan and a young man. One of the SLA members name Wyllie Wolf was driving the car in the backseat of the car where Patricia was in the trunk Bill Harris and. Donald the freeze saw Willie Wolfe stopped by the cop And they thought to themselves, are we going to waste this cop? Because are we going to kill the sky? Because you know, if he stops us, you know, the gig is up. And as they were having that debate, they saw Willie Wolf drive off because the cop had only stopped him because his lights were in awe. The report of the kidnapping had not yet been made. So the three cars drive off. And that's the beginning of the Patty Hearst kidnapper. The story could've ended right there with that police office way gate could've ended with a with a massacre, an air, or with the killing, or the officer, or the officer copying foil. Exactly. But it was not foiled and a nearly two-year drama ensued. Maybe I bury the lead because we haven't talked about the reasons why these kidnappers wanted Patty Hearst, Right? And and this actually goes back to the media in a way because the SLA and I know we're going to be talking about the SLA was less. Splinter of a splinter in the radical movement of the 1970s it really never had more than a dozen members a tiny group. And they had sort of generalize grievances against, uh, American society that were not dissimilar from like the Weather Underground in the Black Panthers. They were concerned about racial discrimination. They were concerned about the unfair economic division of spoils in the United States. But oddly three of the original kidnappers came from the Indiana University theater program. And they were believers in guerrilla theater. And they wanted to make a dramatic statement and they thought, who could we kidnapped? That would make an incredible statement. And what they settled on was a Hurst because at the removal forty years, It is difficult to envision And remember and know how famous the Hurst name was in the 1970s because he William Randolph Hearst Patricia grandfather, who she never. At He died before she was born, was the first and greatest newspaper baron in the United States, and maybe we want to advise our viewers. Do you think our listeners know what a newspaper as they came on paid for far familiar with abor media power in the 20th century by and large was defined by newspapers and no one was more powerful than William Randolph Hearst. And even though he was dead in the '70s, the hearse chain, which included a paper in San Francisco, in many other areas, was enormously powerful in the name, had tremendous residents. So the fact that they picked a hearse to kidnap was far from an accident. And even though Patty herself was just nineteen years old and not politically engage particularly, She was a symbol of media power in the United States. And these kidnappers knew they would get Nash. Attention based on kidnapping Hearst. No question. And and that was why they picked her also. They thought that the Hurst family was richer than it actually. What though religious also turns out to be part of the story, We'll be right back with more, How'd he hasn't gone right after this?
