41. Scuba Air Quality, Project AWARE Week 2020
"Way Back. In episode seventeen, I did a segment on project aware. It's history and the work the organization was doing. I also introduced you to the ten steps or tips for divers in making a difference things like being a role model or being buoyancy expert. One of the things that Patty and project aware initiated in two thousand eighteen was project aware week. We are closing in on the third annual project aware week, and it runs from September nineteenth to the twenty seventh this year. So. Why are they doing this? Well, Patty and project aware went to jointly celebrate the power of the global dive community and inspire positive action in support of a healthy ocean. And we WANNA do this not only with our diving, but also with our everyday life. Our actions and our choices can make a difference. Why the global dive community. Focus. Well. That's pretty easy to understand. We knew we know what the ocean has to offer as divers. We've been there to see all of its wonders and we've also been there to see it struggles. who better than us to advocate the oceans? One of the themes of this year's project where week is that one single person can make a difference. Earlier this year I attended our annual patio update by a regional manager. Ironically it was in person just a couple of days before the lockdown. Doing that presentation, Rob introduced me to a slogan that Patty is put forth. Seek adventure save the Ocean. That's pretty powerful. We all know about the adventure park. Getting to explore so much of the planet that most people don't experience. Patty training and travel has been enabling to seek adventure part for a long time. Their commitment to project aware continues to work on saving the ocean. But this year, there's a renewed effort on one single person making a difference. And that's becoming a patty torchbearer. Inspired by the Patty logo, torchbearers are committed to take the health of the planet and taking steps to heal the environment. Patti's mission here is to create one billion torchbearers by twenty fifteen. Certainly a bold endeavor. That's why one of the things we can do during this year's project where week is to promote the recruitment of Patty torchbearers? Becoming Patty Torchbearer. And you can easily do it from the conservation tab of the Patty website. Some things that torchbearers think about are being stewards for the ocean and your local beaches. Ditching the disposable lifestyle being a voice for the ocean shopping sustainably, and finally choosing experiences instead of things. A billion torch bearers is a big number and will be a very big voice. Project. Aware. We can also be time to conduct the project aware specialty course or other aware courses. We're going to be conducting the project aware Coral Reef Conservation Specialty, clash during project aware week, and we're also going to make it a point to have our social media focusing on seeking adventure and saving the ocean and concentrating on the two thousand and twenty project aware themes. A few weeks ago we were at our first open water certification dives in Rhode Island, a beautiful spot, but also threatened by debris. One of our newly certified divers entered her dive with a disposable coffee container. There was noticeable trash on the beach and in shallow areas among the SEAGRASS. So now I'm thinking, we really need to incorporate the project aware dive against debris specialty class into our schedule, and we're going to be doing that in October. Our shop is proud to support project aware with our one hundred percent aware commitment. And the project aware specialty course we routinely offer and a new things we have out there from project aware. Two Thousand and twenty has certainly been a challenge. Take. Some time during project. Aware we to reflect on how we can move forward together. and become a patty torchbearer, make two, thousand and twenty one, the turning

"I've been approached about the student teacher story before by people who always seem to have this moralistic agenda to tell this cautionary tale of young people who are in over their heads or taken advantage of with too much freedom and sex and drugs, and rock and roll. And I definitely want to be clear with you that I actually believe that artistic exploration and that. Freedom is worth a certain amount of existential risk and I'd rather live next door to junkies than millionaires any day. And I'm endlessly grateful. That we came of age in a place time like that.

Becoming a home carer during a pandemic
"3.3 million home health workers such as nurses, therapists and personal care AIDS provide a range of medical and daily living services to nearly 12 million people around the US, However, the covert pandemic is putting pressure on this workforce already in crisis due to shortages. Especially in some states that are experiencing an increase in covert cases. Alexandra Harrell is the founder of an organization called Patty and Ricky. And she offers tips on how family members can assist their loved ones during their new role as a caregiver during the pandemic really hard time for individuals with disabilities or chronic health conditions, illnesses they're scared that people home health care is coming to their homes. Because they're scared to Kobe and many family members have decided to have their family members were just abilities, chronic condition their elderly parents live with that. So there's a lot of new caregivers right now. And those, of course, are being experienced. You know the new caregivers that they're not used to this, I guess because they're they're usually out at work or wherever they go every day. And so now they're at home with the person who needs to care right? Because they're new to the caregiving, which is a new role for them can be really challenging at first. You know they used to having maybe they're assisted living facility, which many have been throughout the country, so it's just been a really hard time, but I do have some chips.

Joe Biden's Potential Running Mate: Susan Rice
"Joe Biden is believed to be getting close to naming his running mate in this year's presidential election. One of those on Biden's short list for the job is Susan Rice. She has deep experience as an ambassador and in national security, but not as a candidate. NPR's Don Gani reports. Susan Rice has a ready answer when asked about the possibility of being Joe Biden's pick for vice president, whether I'm his running mate, or I'm a door knocker. I don't mind this was on NBC's Meet the press, and I'm going to do everything I can. To help get Joe Biden elected him to help him succeed is president. Her resume is deep. Rhodes scholar, State Department ambassador to the U. N. Obama's national security advisor, rise His vice presidential prospects gain strength as calls for Biden to name an African American woman grew during this summer's black lives matter. Protests And she is known to be tough. This is from an appearance on NPR last fall, My dad had a mantra that comes from his experience growing up in the segregated South, and in the twenties and thirties and Serving and segregated Air Force A Tuskegee during World War two. Hey, always told me and my brother don't take crap off of anybody. Of all the potential Biden running mates. None can match rice on foreign policy. But to many her inclusion on the short list is curious because that skill set duplicates Biden's own strength. He has deep foreign policy experience from his decades in the Senate. There is one big gap in Rice's resume. She has never held elective office never been a candidate, veteran Democratic strategist Patti Solis Doyle says in 2020. That particular shortcoming may not matter at all, given how campaigning has changed under the pandemic. No arousing public speeches, no handshakes at the local diner That's not happening anymore. And so that skill is not as valuable as it was, Say four years ago. The pandemic also complicates the vetting process. Those one on one get acquainted meetings between Biden and potential nominees will certainly be different. But Biden already knows Rice well, including from hours and hours together in the Oval Office during the Obama years. If there's one person that knows that Susan Rice has been in the room and can handle the pressure, it's Joe Biden. Joe Joe Biden has seen it firsthand. One certain line of attack Republicans will use against Rice. If she's on the ticket is Benghazi. That's the 2012 assault on a U. S diplomatic compound in Libya that killed four Americans. When it happened Rice one on TV and called the Assault an act of spontaneous violence that was later shown to be incorrect. All these years later, it remains a rallying cry for Republicans. In fact, here is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just this month talking about Rice and Benghazi on Fox News. She went on and made up a story about a video in a protest when she knew full well that this was a terror attack. In the end, multiple GOP led congressional enquiries into Benghazi uncovered no wrongdoing by the Obama administration. Susan Rice, meanwhile, is looking ahead early this year. She was on a panel and caution that if Democrats retake the White House, they'll need to respect institutions and show respect to their opponents. There will be

"Hello everyone and welcome to frames. My name is Scott Olsen and I am talking today with Beowulf Sheehan. Beowulf is one of the most sought after most successful and I believe most important portrait photographers in New York. These days he has worked in more than fifty countries lectured at New York University and Yale among other places and if you go to his website you will see portrait of people like Oprah Winfrey Twenty Morrison Patti Smith Margaret Atwood Patrick Stewart in Kellyn Paul Simon and dozens and dozens of others. It is a body of work of which I am personally Quite envious good morning. Bill could he's got great to hear Your Voice. I do have a quick thought for you. I've not traveled to fifty countries the photograph I photographed in better than ten by way of commissions however I have photographed people from at least fifty countries and hopefully been able to travel to their worlds in cultures through those experiences. Okay I saw that on your resume and I was impressed and I'm still impressed. So tell me how things are in New York this morning. New York is a beautiful place this morning. The air is cool and crisp outside. I did have a short walk this morning. I am very fortunate that out my window. I have a cemetery so I get to see less trees and I have a great deal of quiet. What sounds I hear. Every morning in this new time of ours is usually One of two things that I hear all either your birdsong or I will hear the sound of a passing ambulance and of course happy to hear the former not to hear the ladder. That is the time in which we live summer mornings in New York. City yes Tell me about portrait photography but let let let's begin where people how in the world could you get into photography? How did you get into the kind of portraiture that you do specifically I into photography being a shy boy and wanting to make friends and prior to the thought of making friends? I wanted to be reacquainted with my father. My parents divorced when I was in elementary school. My father was out in my life for a few years and when he came back the beginning of my high school years he had a Konica thirty five millimeter camera. A Long Lens to go with it and when I arrived at high school which was a high school outside of my neighborhood I went to magnet high school for foreign languages. I was busted very early in the morning to get there. I was in the ethic minority in head a world of new friends to make and when I got to school my classmates were speaking about two things with which I was unfamiliar of the Miami Dolphins. I grew up in Fort Lauderdale and girls and I knew very little about both but I had been working in the summers and not really spend that money on anything beyond books and comic book so I had enough money saved to become the youngest person in the history of the Miami Dolphins the buy season tickets to the Miami Dolphins. That's impressive I go So what I had done was than I began to use my father's camera and I would take a tripod that camera that long lens invite a new acquaintance from high school to eat game. And I believe my mother had driven been to us down To attend these games and no one ever stopped me. The guards were very kind. They recognize me after a few games. I always went through the same gate that sort of thing and was able to watch Dan Marino or the ball around and make pictures and then make Prince of those pictures and share them with classmates over time developing friendships and of course Getting to know my father again. That's a wonderful beginning there. Is I know an extraordinary event. Though in your early connection to reading and that's possible yes but but I'll let you lead that so when you're asking the extraordinary connection is well. Yeah you you are probably the only you are the only person I know who's ever been bitten by an alligator. Oh this is true this this. I don't know all the people in your life of course who you know but but I'm the only person I know who's been bitten by an alligator and that happened to me in the summer of nineteen seventy six in June of that year. I was of course on summer break from school quite small and my brother and I were playing in the backyard of the home of a friend of my mother in southwest Fort Lauderdale where there are canals and those canals in some cases feed than Their Way West to the Florida everglades and of course. That's where alligators hang out. And some of them sometimes get lost. My brother-in-law had been wrestling. This lady's backyard was time to come into the House for lunch. I had asked the Lady of the House. If we could use your host wash our feet persons they were full of dirt from the grass and the young lady had said no actually better just a spicer feed off the dock and then it'll be quicker and I went I. I remember sitting at the dock. Enjoying splash on my feet and looking at my brother and my brother's twenty months younger than me made his eyes get bigger and he looks down on my foot. I looked at my foot and I saw the alligator close. Its mouth around my right foot and I went to some degree of shock. The allegation let go. He caught the outside artery of my ankle and bloodshot out. Allah a bad money iphone sketch. And my my brother then began to grab my body to try to pull my body up and my mother and my mother's friend of course had come out of the house at this time and they were lifting me from the document onto the grass. The allegation had gone back under the dock. And I don't know how much more time passed or how much blood I lost but I then at some point found in the emergency room of a hospital where my brother was born. Only a few blocks away and doctors worked in saved my foot. Save my leg. There was concern for infection loss and I was very lucky to have for the balance of the summer. Have Gone to the hospital every day to get my foot. Epsom salts to save it and that meant of course not being able to play games at not being able to enjoy summer camp not being able to do sports do much of anything involved mobility and that deepened my reading and then with it of course my drawing and my reading and drawing through my childhood in and beyond began with comic books and then onto more challenging books More INTERESTING BOOKS. Maybe more interesting stuff. The right word say because books are wonderful. And they're very very interesting. Otherwise we wouldn't have these films adaptations of stories that now the masses is seen film but the the books of course comic books would come out once a month and it was great to go to seven eleven after school and pick up those books but I would devour them so quickly and then I really wasn't in the mood to wait another month for the next book to come out so I would just draw stories myself. The drawing worked its way over time of course into photography. But that's a longer compensation which I'm happy to have

"Democratic candidates a Joe Biden is forming a committee to look for a running mate meanwhile the party is looking for the best person to bring their message to the the people people and and there's there's talk talk about about having having former former First First Lady Lady Michelle Michelle Obama Obama take take on on that that role role for for more more on on the the campaign campaign key key case case CBS CBS news news anchors anchors Jeff Jeff Ellen Ellen Patti Patti rising rising spoke spoke with Bruce Cain Stanford University political science professor and director of Stanford's center for the American west professor a great headline obviously to put Michelle Obama out there is a potential running mate Ailey validity to that are from all indications the people that know Michelle Obama and I work with no I think it's probably more in that category you know putting performer you know we have somebody that would be very intriguing but hasn't actually run for office and usually when people haven't run for office after they passed the age of forty there it's because they really don't want to run for office it's not a pleasant thing to do so it's an intriguing possibility in never say the things are impossible but until the person really wants to do it it doesn't seem like it's very likely about using her more just to actively in the campaign rallies bring people together raising money do you see are taking an active role I think that she might justice I think Barak might if they're polling indicates that it could be very
How to Be Seen and Heard in a Noisy Marketplace
"I'm absolutely honored to welcome. Can you back to the show. So thank you for being this week's guest expert and mental. Susan thank you so much for having me back I have returned triumphantly certainly do the show and I am excited to deliver some modicum of wisdom to the audience. Excellent I'm going to tap into that with day. We'll see the time will tell. It's a new decade. The noise in the marketplace couldn't allow down what Arou- authors going to have to do to be heard and seen in this incredibly noisy marketplace one of the things I've been thinking gene about increasingly each time I publish a book is who really is my reader. I talked to my agent once and he told me that one of the problems with Nonfiction Authors Business Book Authors etc is that they think that everybody who is in business or everybody who has ever run a business is their target audience for the book and that's just simply too broad. Let me phrase it this way. Somebody asked me the other day. Should they start a podcast and I said yes but only under her this condition. If for some people your podcast is their favorite podcast in the whole world. Then yes you should should start podcast if you cannot start a podcast that is the civic and relevant enough so that it is somebody's favorite podcast in the whole world than you should not start a podcast because it will not succeed seed and I think books are largely the same now of that you have to understand not for whom the book is potentially relevant but for whom is this book. Ideally relevant for whom is this going to be the best and most interesting and most insightful and most helpful book they've ever read and the more you can understand exactly Jackley who that audience is the better you can break through the enormous. Clutter that we all face absolutely. I couldn't agree with you more. Because that's one thing when authors come come to me Jay and one of the first questions and I've said this over and over again in many episodes and that is who is your target audience begins because as you rightly say people think that the book is much more universal than it actually really is. They've got to start some way to throw that stone into the pond and the ripples flow out that leads me into who you'll latest book which is talk triggers on this. You've written one that I don't know if you talk to this. What exactly exactly are two triggers? Talk triggers are operational choices that you make in your business or in your career or your life that are designed to create conversation. A talk trigger is from a shorthand standpoint. A word of mouth generator. It is is something that you do that your customers or your audience notices and then feels compelled to share with their friends and colleagues online nine or offline the key to understand this however Susan. Is that a talk. Trigger is almost never rooted in quality because we as human human beings are wired to discuss things that are different and ignore things. That are the same. If you're a restaurant for example people stay well. mytalk talk trigger is that we have really good food. It's like no. It's not because all restaurants have adequate food otherwise they wouldn't still be a restaurant and many many restaurants have exceptional national food. The quality of your food has to be so stratospheric high for that to be the word of Mouth Story About Your restaurant that you can almost never get the instead you have to do. Use something different in your organization in Your Business that people notice a talk about so for me on stage as a public speaker. I only wear plaid sued. You have a whole litany of glad suits and that is my calling card. That is the talk trigger but the Best Hawk triggers our experiences and not just a bullet point so the way we do that. Susan if you know the story is when somebody books made it to give a keynote presentation. The meeting planner about seven days before the event gets access. We sent the link to a special website. You all can go right now if you want. It's dressed. Jay Baer Dot com dress. Jay Baer Dot Com and it has on that special website pictures of all the suits. What's that I own? And the meeting planners select switch suit they would like me to wear to their event and then it goes on my calendar so I know what to bring to the event and meeting planners talk about about this all the time they tell the audiences about it when they introduced me they tell each other about it. It is the differentiator at people talk about. They don't say Jay's is a good speaker because they expected me to be a good speaker what they didn't expect. Was this other thing in all talk. Triggers by definition are things that the audience or your your customers or your readers. Don't expect for you. I see your plaid suits as being your brand would. Do you agree with that. Is it your brand in that sense. Even though as you said which I love the meeting planet can choose what you wear. I'm not short that I would want people to choose but I won't. That's why everybody has to have their own version of a talk trigger so to me. I hope the brand is helping people build their businesses in in on conventional ways. That perhaps they haven't thought of before word of mouth is one of them. Customer Service is one of them digital marketing is one of them. So that's what we're trying to shoot for. I would say the plaid suits suits is a brand attribute that the reason it becomes a talk trigger is because we turned it into experience. People noticed it but they didn't talk about it until we built the website and then allowed allowed the meeting planners to have a handed. Then it became truly talkable even example. A restaurant there's a restaurant in Sacramento California called skips kitchen very simple restaurants counter service mostly hamburgers good burgers like by all measure good hamburgers but when skip started the business he and his wife ten years ago they they really stretched financially to get this business open. They're down to their last nickel and they certainly couldn't spend money on on advertising and marketing. What how are we going to make this go without any any sort of advertising budget? And he said well. Let's just do something that people haven't seen before so they created this system where you order the menu board. You Wanna I wanNA Patti. Melton an running rings in a chocolate shake and then your food's ready they bring it out to your table. We all have been to restaurants like that. There's nothing noteworthy about the premise. However after you order but before you pay the person at the counter pulls out a deck of playing cards and fans out face down on the counter in front of you it looks you dead in the eye and says and you select a card and if you get a joker your entire meal meal is free whether you've ordered for just yourself an entire high school baseball team now on average about four people today win this game and when they win they go crazy? They're telling their friends. They're putting insult fees on the Internet. They're put reviews on Google and YELP and tripadvisor to this day. There is a line to get in. Almost every single day skips kitchen and they had had still spent zero dollars zero cents on advertising ever. Now do people talk about the food. Yeah it's good food but expected to be good but what they talk about. Is this card game so much. So that despite the fact they have a giant neon sign out front that says skips kitchen in Sacramento. Most people call it. That joker restaurant. I love it I know that rotary every week. We take cards to find out whether it's a joker in them. We win the idea. They say my dare. I love it. I have a trigger in my book. So here's how it works okay. There's actually to talk. Triggers for the book won the book. Talk triggers is hot pink and as Alpacas on the cover to pack as sort of a whispering to one another sort of a word of mouth kind of way now first of all there are zero other business books ever published in the World Tau pack as on the cover pretty sure unless they're like Alpaca business book. I don't think that even exists. So you will definitely definitely notice this book on the shelf. That is not an accident. Second on the back of the book it sets Satisfaction guaranteed if you purchase this copy of eggers not one hundred percent delighted. The authors will purchase any other book of your choosing. It's on the book and we have so Dan Lemon. My Co author and myself have made that offer we've sold lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of copies of this book and we have had two two people take us up on this offer one guy emails essences J. I didn't like the buck and I said Oh that's too bad. How come he said there weren't enough case studies and I thought well that's strange because we have like thirty three case studies in this book? But that's okay. I said all right. We made the offer. What kind of book would you like? And he wanted some sort of weird out of print book on cobol programming. He was like a hundred and forty dollars. She thought was a little beyond the Pale but we made the offer so we bought him a book a month later. Another guy says Jay. I didn't like about I am I gonNA. I'm terribly sorry. How come you said there were too many case studies? You can't please all the people. All the time was the lesson that I learned there. Erin he wanted a book and I bought him a book. So that is the thing that people talk about when they picked him up and they look in the background like wow they must really believe in this book. If there's literally Hristo by me and the other book and we will
President Trump's State of the Union address - Military family reunites
"News I'm Jeff bell I'm Patti rising and our live team coverage of the state of the union address continues on KCBS we are joined now live on the KCBS ring central news line by KCBS political analyst Larry Gersten it's great to talk to you this evening I'm interested in your vast experience how this particular presidential speech ranks with the the previous state of the unions that you have seen in terms of of tone in response you know Patty in some ways it was extraordinarily traditional I mean I'm not sure anybody was expecting it to be delayed out quite the way it was if you talked about their great economy you talked about about how rebuilding our our society our country's talked about defense talked about health care education equality opportunity all those types of things so I'll be in the broad brush if you could look at it that way was was was almost you know part and parcel the way we've heard things before now go down a layer if you will and and look at some of the details that were filled in and that's when you saw a different trump and and and and we've seen before in two ways number one it was it was very partisan very part stated the union speeches are usually above partisanship it was very partisan you talked about charter schools you talked about the the idea of a baby our feet is always and being kept kept up to it to add a completion he talked about to say to our cities and and specifically talk about California and how terrible it was you know resting all these undocumented and let him go so he really he really did throw out the meat the red meat if you will to his constituents to the base and I think that's something that maybe some of us were prepared for it but really didn't expect to see this prepared for it as we were what about some of the factors that went beyond the speech the reuniting of a military family the presentation of the medal of freedom to Rush Limbaugh right there in the chamber again presidents have done this as far as I can roll it back to Reagan but he did take it a notch above beyond that the metal thing I think it will upset some people because it was so outside of the balance of tradition if you will and doing the east room and it's a certain way you do it on the other hand bringing the soldier back with the family directly touched a lot of people because nobody likes that the families being separated from his since I think I think by the way did this a lot of other areas a two to drill down even further when you look at some of the things the president said that just patently worked through for example he said you know we want to see pre existing conditions what this administration's been fighting breezes existing conditions in every which way for several years he wants to make sure that we have good health well you know we've never seen any plan a country that would replace the obamacare and so that that kind of leaves you wondering what's going on there you talk about other things you talked about how how we have his health care is better and the people pay less and that's just not true I mean there there are a number of things that the president said that just work through this is not a partisan response on my end it's just a faster response and how many people know these things I don't know who that's another story but but I'm I'm sure that with the other side some of these agree just seems far they're concerned will not be forgotten and you saw you saw that what have what happened when the speaker Pelosi ripped up the speech have never seen anything like that my life she ripped up the speech because she was so angry with with which which cheaper C. it was just a a series full of lice great to talk to you as always said that is KCBS political analyst Larry

"patti" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Robert Mapplethorpe did the very iconic photograph for the cover of horses. Would you briefly describe the the photo. Well it's very a classic photograph by Robert Very Simple. I'm standing against a white wall all with a triangular shadow and dressed in the clothes. Typical of myself thin and Just an old white shirt a clean old white shirt Sort of a black ribbon that symbolizes a tie or CRAVAT Black Pants Jacket slung over my shoulder looking directly at Robert it's Has a little bit of little bit of Baudelaire little bit of Catholic boy a little bit of Frank Sinatra and a lot of Robert. What impact do you think that photo hat on how people perceive you well I you know I. I don't know I know people really liked it. I know the record company. Didn't they didn't let such a great photo. Why didn't the record company like it because my hair was messy because You know it just. It was a little incomprehensible sensible to to them at the time but I fought for it and They did try to air. Brush my hair but I made sure that was yes fixed people were very upset constantly about my appearance when I was young I don't know what what it was. You know they just just. It was very hard for them to factor. But I've always had. That problem is even as a child. You Know I. I used to go to the beach when I was a little kid. And just is one where my dungarees and a flannel shirt and the whole time people would be. Why are you wearing that? Why don't you get a bathing suit? You know why it's like. Leave me alone this this is just like I'm not bothering you. Why are you worried about you know what I looked like? You know. It's just I'm not trying to bother anybody but But people love the photograph. The people on the streets loved the photograph and It gave Robert Some instant attention. I think it was his. You know the where he it really helped launch his work into the public consciousness and And so we were both very happy about that and the funniest thing and sort of the sweetest thing was when I started performing after the record came out I would go to clubs anywhere could be. Denmark could be in Youngstown. Ohio and I would come on stage and at least half of the kids had white shirts and black ties on was it was it was Kinda cool. We were all. We all had suddenly turned Catholic. You write that you know when when Mapplethorpe died of AIDS in March of eighty nine the morning that he died. You describe your feelings and you say that you were shuttering overwhelmed by a sense of excitement acceleration as if because of the closeness that you experience with Robert you're to be privy to his new adventure the miracle of his death. You say this wild sensation stay with you for some days. Could you they describe that. Did you know he was dying when you did. Have you gotten the phone call when you felt this. Or you're just feeling this. You know without even know. I felt that after he died after he died I had already received the call that he had died. I mean we knew that he was dying. We knew that he was dying the last couple of weeks of his life. I talked to him Tom. I talked to Robert in the last hour that he could still speak and I listened to his breathing before I went to sleep. His brother called me and let me listen to his breathing and he died that morning. So that sensation that I felt was his You know acceleration into his next place after death. I could really feel that. I've experienced a lot of death since Robert. I sat with Allen Ginsberg when he died I was with my husband when he died. My parents but Robert the acceleration in energy. I felt after Robert's death was unique. And it did stay with me for quite a while and I think that each of us you know our energy leaves in a different way. According to the person you know according to the energy the person the the the way the spirit manifests. Each of us die died differently and we have You know I believe that I believe we all have a unique journey whether it's a journey of pure energy if there's any intelligence within the journey but I think each of us have our own way of of dissipating or entering a new field. You say that one of the people who you were with when he died was Allen Ginsberg and in your memoir you mentioned some advice that Ginsberg had given you after your husband died he said let go of the spirit of the departed and continue your life's celebration Having experienced as much Beth with death as you have. Is that good advice. Do you think yes. I mean I think that The idea that time heals all wounds is not really true. Our wounds aren't really ever healed. We just learned to Walk with them. We learned that some days. We're GONNA feel intense pain all over again and we and we just have to say okay. Okay I know you if you can come along with me today in the same way that sometimes we start laughing out in the middle of nowhere remembering something that happened with someone we've lost and life is the best thing that we have. We have a life. We each have to negotiate it navigate. It and I think it's very important that we Enjoy our life that we get everything we can out of it and it doesn't take away from a our love departed. I mean I I take Fred along with me in the things that I do or Robert or my father or my mother. You know whoever wants to come along they can be with me and you know if I want them I can sense them. You know we we We have our own life but we we we can still walk with the people that we miss or the that we lose and I think it's very important to Not Not be afraid to experience joy in the middle of sorrow. Because you know that's what our life is you know our it's the fearful symmetry symmetry of Blake. You know joy and sorrow. You don't WanNa just feel wanted them. They're both they're both valuable to the Spirit Patti Smith thank you so much for talking with us. Oh you're welcome nice to talk to you too. Poet Songwriter and performer.

"patti" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Thousand nine hundred nine Patti Smith. Welcome back to fresh air. It's in New York that you met Robert Mapplethorpe and E- either you change the course of each other's lives. Would you tell the story of how you met met Robert Mapplethorpe well. Our my first meeting was very simple. I had some friends at Pride Institute. People that went to my high school that had the means to go to art school and I I was looking for them hoping for a little shelter since I had nowhere to sleep that night but when I went to visit them they had moved and the the boy that answered the door didn't know where my friends had moved and Said said well go in there and maybe my roommate will know where they are and I went in a room and there was a boy sleeping lying on a little the iron bed and just with the mass of dark curls and I soon as I walked in he he awoke and looked at me and smiled and then I talked and he knew where my friends had lived but the thing that I remember the very first impression Russian I have of Robert is waking up and smiling at some point you realize that Mapplethorpe was gay at some point. He realized that he was gay. how did it affect his relationship with you when he came to terms with being gay and had lovers lovers and eventually had a along time lover. Were you able to stay as close. Even though the relationship had changed a Robert Nigh always just as close I mean we had to work out obviously the physical aspect of our relationship and it was really may who in the end severed the physical aspect of our relationship. You know in the end. We worked that out. I mean because we were so close and our love reach other was so deep that the absence sense of And we were still physical with one. Another he was always very affectionate till the day he died. We were still affectionate toward one. Another in your book you write about how Mapplethorpe's work started to change and become more serum masochistic in its imagery which which he became quite famous for and and you're right that That imagery was bewildering. And frightening to you you you right. He couldn't share things with me because it was so outside our Rome and that you couldn't comprehend the brutality of his images ages of self inflicted pain. It was hard feud match it with the boy you had met. Can you talk a little bit about a little bit more about your action to his images and in what what you found disturbing an incomprehensible about it. Well they're disturbing images they're meant. I'm just I'm just I mean Robert I mean a lot of my my Reaction was out of first of all negatively. I didn't know anything the thing about that world. I still know very little about that. World and my protective instincts for Robert they frightened me. I worried that he would be hurt. Her door something bad would happen to him but he was all always assured may that All of these situations were controlled. Consensual situations yes. I mean there were few of these images that I thought were actually brilliant and so we were able after I processed the subject matter to talk about these images as art but I was never really curious to talk about them in any other way and he respected respected. That you say that until a friend suggested that you be in a rock and roll band. It had never occurred to you. It was just like not part of your your. Why would it you know Oh is I'm not a musician you know? I didn't play any instrument. I didn't have any specific talents. I mean I came from the South Jersey Philadelphia area and in the early sixties. Everybody sang they sang on street corners. Three part harmonies Acapella. Most of my friends were better singers than me There was nothing in what I did. That would give a sense that I should pan rock and roll band. Also girls weren't in rock and roll bands. I mean they sang thing. But you know the closest thing to a rock singer a real rock singer that we had was grace slick and I certainly didn't have gray. Slicks voice you're saying that you didn't have you. Didn't think of yourself as a singer per se that your friends had better voices than you did but you created this new style. Israel really that was a combination of poetry and music. It wasn't about having like a perfect singer's voice it. It was the style that you performed in the personality that you put into it. The kind of defiance that you had in some songs the energy would you talk about what you felt you. They were doing early on. That was different from what you've seen other people do. I think my perception of myself was really as a performer and a communicator. I had a mission When we recorded horses my mission was Fisher first album? My first album horses My my mission in and collective band mission was really on one level to merge poetry and rock and roll but More humanistic likely to reach out two other disenfranchised people in one thousand nine hundred seventy five. The you know young homosexual kids were You know being Disowned by their families. The kids were you know kids like me. who were a little weird or a little different? Were often persecuted in their Small towns and it wasn't just because of sexual persuasion. It was for any reason for being an artist for being different for having political views for just wanting to be free and I really Recorded the record to connect with these the people and also in terms of our place in rock roll just to create some bridge between our great artists that we had just lost Jimi Hendrix. Jim Morrison among them and to create space for what I felt would be the new guard which I didn't really include myself. I was really anticipating people are or bands like the clash and the ramones. I was anticipating in my my mind that a new breed would come television. A new breed would come and they would be less materialistic More bonded ended with people and Not so glamorous. I wasn't thinking so much of music. I wasn't thinking so much of Perfection Or stardom or any of that stuff. I was thinking I had this mission and I thought I would do this. Record and then go back to my writing and my hi drawing and return to my you know my my Somewhat abnormal normal life but sources took me on a whole different path. Is there a track from Horses that particularly illustrates what you were describing as what your mission was bird land. Okay I think bird land because for various reasons. Bird land was An improvisation -ation build on an improvisation it so much exemplifies the communication of my band. Especially between Richard Lenny and I and It speaks of this new breed. You know the the the new generations who will be dreaming an animation. You know the new generations nations. That will race across the fields no longer presidents but prophets That that it's that that was my My telegram to the new greed. Oh let's hear it. This bird land from Patti. Smith's first album horses.

Director Greta Gerwig on 'Little Women' and Louisa May Alcott
"Start with a new film that opens this Christmas Day. It's an adaptation of Louisa May alcott novel Little Women and it is a lovely little gift of a movie yourself theory someday. So you'll need me. You'll wish you have behaved better. Thank you so much for your employment and your many kindnesses I intend to make my own way in the world. No no one makes their own way. Not really we civil woman. You'll need to marry. Well you are not married. Because I'm rich wjr. The film is from writer director. Greta GERWIG stars. Sir Sha Ronin. She played the lead in Greenwich Direct. To`real debut lady bird and the rest of the march sisters are played played by Emma Watson Elisa scanlon and Florence pugh Laura dern plays their mom and Meryl Streep is they're wealthy aunt March gerwig has been thinking about little the women for a very long time well before she even found out that producer Amy Pascal was developing a new adaptation of the novel. Here's Greta Gerwig little women and has been a book that I have loved my whole life in a very deep way to the point. Where my memories? And the memories of the March sisters were intertwined in that way that I think books of your youth can means something even beyond being books because th- they they're the they become part of your family I think that's that's the magic of Reading when you're a child is the the distinction between fiction and reality is thin for you or it. It was for me anyway But I hadn't read it since I was about fourteen or fifteen and then I read it in my early thirties when I turned thirty and I All this stuff came out at me in the book that I it not. When I was a child I can passion get so savage could hurt anyone and I enjoyed it? You remind me of myself never angry. I'm angry nearly every damn I li- reading as an adult. I heard all of these different things. I saw it as much touch spike easier and sadder and stranger and almost more triumphant in a certain way and also just is this kind of being aware of an author was another layer of it for me that Joe both wants to be an author but then Louisa as author and so even though Joe March march by the end of the book says she stops her ink well and stops writing and gets married and has children opens a school Louisa though wrote and she wrote that book and we know what. Because there's the book you know. I just sort of had an idol saw about well if I made this. I'd want to center center on this. I'd WanNa Center on all these themes that I felt I hadn't really seen yet about it which was ambition and money money and women an art and I heard in passing my agent said at a dinner. Oh they're interested making little women again again and I was like what I have to go. I have to talk to them. I have an idea and I hadn't made anything at that point. But he got me a meaning and I I went and I talked talk to them and I told them some version of what I wanted to do and And I said I want to direct it and they wanNA write in Iraq and I hadn't had nothing to really show that I could do that so but they very luckily hired me to write it. And then I wrote my draft in in two thousand fifteen two thousand sixteen and then I went away and I may lady bird and then by the time I was finishing that up they said well what what do you think about making little women and I thought I said well I knew you'd ask. I'm ready but it was a it was one one of those for two. It's turns events. I want to ask about that perspective that you had a reading the book as an adult versus as a young woman woman sure and the perspective you have as somebody who is a creative person gas writing movies and making movies because so much of the movie and certainly in the book as well is about the challenges of being a creative person and how you value your own art how you compromise with people who are financing it and how you find your voice even in those parameters that's right now there's a you you picked up all the cards I put down. No it's a it's funny. It's that the opening scene between Joe March and her publisher Mr Dash would which the majority of it is actually word for word from the book when she says took care to have a few of my sinners repent and he says people want to be amused not preach that morals. Don't sell nowadays. That could be me talking to a studio head about something. I WANNA do But it was. It was all there for me to be discovered. I didn't invent it like like I said that. That scene is a scene from the book but it felt too so relevant to right now and then beyond that when when I was researching Louisa Mail Cart and it became clear that that who Lewis male caught was was equally the subjects that I was interested in and then you learn about her life. Is You know unlike Joe. She never got married. She never had children and but she kept writing and she did keep her copyright copyright of little women which is a you know huge thing that she did and I mean there are so many things about her life and what she did. It felt eerily familiar and I think even even in the fact that Her publisher sure and even herself but her publisher truly didn't know what a hit he had. And I find that happens all the time that there's a constant underestimating of audiences that are not the same audience of the people who are in charge of publishing or whatever that may be the the first half of little win because it is really to books as written ends so group. The curtain falls upon big. Joe Beth and amy whether it ever arises again depends upon the reception given to the first act of the domestic drama called little women death. It's almost like she's saying I've got a a sequel but I hope people by the I know she's She's a business lady no she and and and it it. It's worth saying that the the initial printing sold out in two weeks and it has not been out of print for one hundred fifty years in one thousand nine hundred four. There was a story. Little women leads poll novel level rated ahead of Bible for influence on high school pupils. Yeah that's nice. I mean I mean it's just nice for her and it raises his other question like what people take away from the book because you can interpret it in very different ways. I'm going to give you two prominent women who have thoughts. That's about it. The first is Gloria Steinem. WHO said in Nineteen ninety-two? Where else could we read about an all female group who discussed work art and all the great questions or found girls who wanted to be women and not vice versa? Oh that's beautiful found girls that wanted to be women not the versa. And here's the author meal Paalea who says the whole thing is like a horror movie. I know I think if you have an idea in your head of the it can be of little women. It's usually from the first book. It's the kind of Christmas to Christmas structure. And the you know the second half of the book Louis Male jokes. She should've called the wedding marches. Because they all got married and truly British version is called good wise exactly zoo you know. It was in this to book structure which is part of why I is structured the film I did starting with them as adults Because I wanted to start with the second half but I also think there's two books embedded in it because if you you just read the book on its face value with this. Kind of pre Victorian morality of Domesticity in virtue tied to femininity communitty. And all of these kind of tidy bows put on each chapter. Then I think you miss what's really roiling roiling underneath and if you read it that way of course Camille Paglia is completely right. It is something that would be a horror show if that is all you're seeing but I'd the way I look at it is if you can take the ending of the book where she felt she must marry Joe off to someone because that's what the readers demanded and she made this economic decision. That's what she would do Because she had so books then if you if you read everything through the Lens of will she had to make it all kind of tidy for the time time then if you take away the tidiness what's left is a whole bunch of am Bishen and mess and anger and lust and craziness and things things that don't fit neatly into any box. And so what I wanted to do was not update the text. The text doesn't need updating. I wanted to take away the constraints constraints of the time in some ways. Because that's what was interesting to me and even in those constraints. Louisa really did do her best to try. I to imagine what what would in a gala -tarian marriage look like. What would something that was? Not Essentially INDENTURED SERVITUDE BE As a marriage and I feel that you know Gloria Steinem being one of them with a Simone Tip Avar Patti Smith Orlando Toronto or J. K. Rowling rallying. There's a long list of women for whom this book meant very specific freedom an ambition and what I wanted to do was make a film film that was in the tradition of why that inspired them. Because it's there's gotta be a reason more than she got married to Professor Bear Sogo to see you. Thanks for coming as really

They would charge them with obstruction. But because. President Trump is the president of and the DOJ has a policy of not indicting a sitting president. They that was why Muller chose not to. He also of my understanding of it is that they didn't want to make a decision because they didn't they didn't want to put it in the report because it didn't want to take away the president's ability to have his basically his say his day in court.

If I sing a song and speak of my relationship with my sisters and their people who are touched that my father died of Alzheimers and people feel every motion that I've gone through in that audience, you've bought them to laughter. You brought them to tears, and I just take that as another blessing that I've been given. So I feel as though I've pleased when I leave the stage and they're standing in cheering for more and that more more cells even better than a standing ovation feels girl. More more more than I'm back like a superstar, how an redo worm right line to myself. I can't wait to get back out there and do another song. Always know that you're shining no matter what. That's not just something Patty says. It's really how she lives in her legendary career. Patti LaBelle has recorded hits acted in the movies and on Broadway and authored books, but are true. Passion remains performing live and at age seventy one. She's still electrifying crowds around the globe and finding new ways to connect with her audience. She is living proof that age doesn't define who we are and what we can accomplish Patti LaBelle. You are one fierce master. I would sit here and lie. If I said my whole life was beautiful and wonderful. There were no downs and no deep valleys. I've been through it all, but as I say, look at me now. I am good. I am so happy sometimes as I checked myself, I said, is this really you pet? You that happy. I woke up happy. I've been going to bed happy. I am touched by angel's. I am people ask me all the time. You know, why are you still here in a? Why are you still performing at seventy one? The way you did when you were twenty? I have no answer for that. Things are happening for me more now than when I was twenty and thirty and forty and fifty at seventy. It seems that I'm reaching this place in my life that I never thought would happen. And now my door has opened so wide. There's even a window over there that sober with my name one and it's coming at a late age and as low as saying to a lot of women and men don't let your age full you. It's only a number. You can do as much with seventy as you can with twenty. I guess that's why I'm still here because my spirit is so wild and so engaging, and I love what I do. I am loving myself like crazy. Nobody in this world can love me like a love me. Nobody just leave out the hate and bring on as say, turn up the love. I'm Oprah Winfrey and you've been listening to masterclass the podcast.

"I was performing many years ago in Albany, New York, and I fell down on the floor a passed out, and I was rushed to the hospital, and the doctor came back with my diagnosis, and I thought he was going to say, oh, you're exhausted because we have been working a lot, and he said, did you know that you were diabetic? I said, no, I didn't. My mother was diabetic and had her legs amputated and my aunts and uncles. They all on blind. And I said, no, I didn't have a clue. So of course, you start thinking about the things that you've been doing and your life like cooking food improperly, like frying the whole chicken in eating the whole chicken and French fries and macaroni and cheese potato salad. I fry corn with butter in crane. Everything a loved. I had the modify. Now. I had to start broiling baking chicken and just eating vegetables as I did, but instead of putting the ham hawks in, I just changed my way of living. And of course you have to start exercising more. You have to keep your weight down. You have to leave the cakes alone. I was addicted to cheesecake every now then if they're sugar goes low, I have my little by the cheesecake but your whole lifestyle changes. But most people are walking around with diabetes and they don't have a clue that they might have it because they don't get tested. I wouldn't have never gone to get tested unless that had happened that night when I pass out. So people just don't think that they will end up with diabetes, and there's so many people who they won't go to the hospital. Your eyesight starts acting funny things happen. With your body that normally don't happen. Go see a doctor and just see in. He might tell you your fi, you know, but at least find out a lot of people because I did a few commercials for diabetes after seeing me, it made them go to the doctors, and it said that a celebrity has to tell you to check yourself and people listen to us. They'll listeners only time. 'cause sometime we'd be lie. Check your body the way it feels. If you feel funding, go, don't listen to Patti LaBelle, just go for yourself. Potties group..

"If you're today, there was one time we were doing a show in Ohio, and it was half an hour before we left the hotel. So we all waited for Cindy birdsong to come and get in the car. And there was no Cindy, and that was weird. So we're all kind of crazy things. So of course, we had to do the show and later she called us and said, girls, I'm sorry. But I'm with the Supremes now. And I said, Ooh, I said, that's sweet. I was pissed. They wanted to replace Florence Ballard and Cindy birdsong very much like Florence Ballard since she left to go with the Supremes, but it was done the wrong way. I would've agreed to her going with the Supremes who were doing so much better than our grew, why not graduate. So I would have said, go ahead Cindy, but let us know I or Diana talk to me, I and let me know. Don't just snatch girl from me so that hurt for a long time when things happen to me that are not so pleasant. I don't let it bring me down. I take the high road and I forgive, but I never forget. But I do take the high road. You'll never see me disrespecting anyone no matter what they've done to me. And I found a way to forgive Cindy and the Supremes for that. They wanted to enhance their group. You didn't diminish mine. You know, you just took a great. Friend of mine away, but we're still friends today. Autumn line is it's okay. I love her madly. I've had a crazy life, but it ends up well. The temptations were Philadelphia playing at the show boat downtown. And after I saw the show, they knew Patti LaBelle was in the audience and they introduce themselves. And for some reason, Otis in, I became attracted to Otis Williams of the temptations. So I ended up seeing Otis and we ended up becoming engaged, and then he amused, beautiful ring. And he talked about what kind of life where we're gonna have and everything. And I'm saying, yeah, I said, I'm right track the to it temptation or to a man that I wanna be with. I think I was more in love with the temptations than Otis Williams, who was a very sweet man. They were big at that time, you know, and sometimes you get a little celebrity crazy. And I think I was in that category Chow that Maga Rinaldo sons went through my mind. Mess it. I don't think this is gonna work. And the reason I said it is because he wanted me to move the Detroit and stop saying and not use this. I don't think so. I sat. Really. I said, very nicely. The engagement is all I have to sing for the rest of my life, no matter what if they weren't paying me, I have to say that's how it is with me, no matter what I'm going to say. Yes. I still really care for him very much. He's a sweet man, but I'm glad I didn't marry booboo now that was a good move on my part. I knew that I was more than that. So believe in yourself and release yourself of things that you think you want release set mine and say, no, I want to do better. There's no other group like Lebel. They never will be Sarah Yash known Hendricks and Patti LaBelle, and we wore the most outrageous beautiful clothes. And the reason we were the close is to get your attention because three black ladies up. There's just a regular gowns s not gonna work. Most of the time it doesn't work. So that was all the gimmick. We did the most. We were Madonna and Gaga before they were and kiss. They saw our clothing and went to our designer. So we were kissed before they were kiss, you know, we were ahead of our time and let me tell you there's not been another Lebel out in life..
