"I watch Nick Foles press conference. And he you know, he got he got emotional over being questioned them about them not being very good. And I think coach Nagy was irritated to kind of like, you know Peggy my my answer was a welcome to Chicago and you play off with a really good defense, right? So, they'll get used to it, you know, as long as you win games nothing else really does matter. I mean, obviously when you look at them from an analyst standpoint, you're wondering when they get into that wage work or if an office desk or twenty one point early or three touchdowns. Can we score 28 to 30 points which they have? I think they get the bulk. Is it put up 30 points or the phone number? To go to Indiana fell but like you said pay you and you watch that defense, they're extremely good and they got one thing that a lot of good teams and teams that have good success with the formula of the defense wins games. They create chaos with a quarterback and they speed up the offense is clogged which creates turnovers. So that defense to me on film look up to dominate not only been six weeks, but that's secondary to find the involved the defense side how good they've been playing is that secondary is playing really well also, so so, you know and thought we'd love to say there's no pictures on the scorecard. I don't care how you got that birdie. A birdie is a birdie a win is a win but we would have loved for it to be beautiful and to be you know them be a great well oiled machine, but how long can they sustain this throughout the rest of the NFL season?

The Enfield Poltergeist

"We begin in nineteen seventy-seven back in a little town called Enfield London. Okay. Okay. So we're across the pond. We are across the pond and because of that you're probably going to hear me do a lot of really terrible British accents. I love it. I'm here for that. Ye on top of that. I'm not really sure if I pronounce the name right of the town, but I think I've heard it said in field. So I mean that's how it's spelled. So yeah, I would assume as well but I don't know if it's like unveiled or like you know, that's your prestigious. Yeah, but because we're from America we're going to go with Enfield. I love it. So we're sitting in this Tiny Town. And we are going to visit our friends the Hodgson family. Okay? Okay. I've got Mom Peggy Hodgson who is in fact a single mom of four which at the time seemed like pretty weird, you know to be a single mother. Yeah. I mean, I guess divorce was still not like a big thing back then that's okay, especially in London, I guess so she was risky to the people of London. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So it was just a weird thing to see her four children included Margaret who was twelve at the time Janet who was eleven Johnny who was ten and Billy who was seven so we got our two girls and two boys easy to keep up with exactly. They're all living their lives having a grand old time in this cute little like looks like a townhouse kind of thing. It's like wage one of those connected houses where it's like there's a few houses in one unit yeah I know exactly which yeah so this cute guy cute little garden gnome whatever they're living their lives then the evening of August 30th 1977 rolls around okay oh Peggy as wage most likely stressed out mother is it trying to get her kids to go to bed she's like guys I gotta wake up I got to go to work tomorrow y'all gotta go to school tomorrow let's get to bed so she's downstairs doing some gift bad stuff and she heard Janet the eleven-year-old saying from upstairs that her and her brothers beds were like wobbling what yeah wobbling wobbling oh baby wobble baby wobble baby wobble no dead But they don't fall down. That's a wee before you so it's a total natural night. Okay, and then Peggy, like I said super stressed at the time she was not having this and she was just like Janet stop mucking about go to bed. I'm done with you. Yeah. Okay. This seems seems pretty normal. Yeah, pretty sure well. I mean like for Peggy from her personal perspective, you know, like it's a normal night. Her kids are being like no, I don't go to bed. So we'll make up this excuse. Yeah, she's tired and she's like just do it. I'm just over y'all. Let's call it done. Like I need a glass of wine and he only because right so the next Thursday evening Peggy herself heard a crash from upstairs. So this time she actually goes to investigate and when she got to the room a chest of drawers wage, Coming towards her without anyone pushing it seemingly of its own volition. No way. Yeah. Yeah rural she said in an interview that it seemed like Tom Thumb something was trying to block off her family from the rest of the house using the chest of drawers. Oh my gosh, that's terrifying. I know. Oh my God, and I'm sure not at all what she expected. Oh gosh. No, I would burn the house down immediately. I mean, oh my gosh, you go to open a room and here comes a dresser just like back at you like this isn't Beauty and the Beast. Okay, right? No, she ain't talking to us. Probably not that friendly either probably not dead. If she was I probably would have a different reaction right? I guess jurors don't have pronouns. Wow. Wow, and Carol just broke. So after that my Janet's older sister Margaret, she goes on to say in many like interviews and articles that after that night be activity definitely started to increase she says there were strange little noises in the house. You couldn't make out what was going on and none of us got any sleep. We put on our dressing gown and slippers and we would always go next door which wasn't a direct quote but I changed a little pool. So there you go like down in plaid quote. It's an implied quote people. So anyways, they're all putting on their dressing gowns and slippers and whatnot and took over to their neighbor's house who are named Vic and Peggy which could in fact get confusing, but we're only going to talk about big so There you go. Okay, so that makes it easy. Yeah Vic Nottingham. Oh how fancy anyway, so the family goes over to their neighbors and Mistral Vic Vic nodding him. He is described as a Burly Builder and he's a big dude. He decides to go over and investigate by himself, which I don't know why anybody would do that either. I mean, I don't know how long as I get people not believing in it and not wanting to do her like not really caring to go over but like Even if there's a tiny hint that it could be real why wouldn't anyone else with me. I'm guessing he was just being neighborly to his, you know, single mom of four. Yeah and wanting to help out. I mean, I'm sure to it probably had to sound kind of ridiculous. Hm, you know, and he was probably like, well, there's gotta be a very clear explanation. Yeah. You're probably right. I just wouldn't go I would not have gone by myself. I know you wouldn't have come over like, oh my God a chance to see ghosts. I'm there. I'll grab my flashlight. Oh my gosh, so he goes over and he goes on record saying I went in there and I couldn't make out these noises. There was a knocking on the wall in the bedroom on the ceiling and I was afraid beginning to get a bit frightened. No, meaning the Pearly Builder got frightened. The Burly Builder was bewildered sounds like a kids book. It does that get dumped so then they finally decide. Hey, let's call the police and see what she going on. Maybe the police will figure something out that we haven't put together seems logical right? So the police come over and they start to have very similar experiences and they are I'm sure of what is going on. One of the officers even signed an affidavit claiming. She saw a large armchair move. Unassisted four feet across the floor. Oh my gosh. No thoughts on record. Yeah. Oh my goodness. Yeah. Yeah, so like I'm also assuming that they checked for like any kind of rigging or anything like that. I mean I would hope so being that there were police I would think they'd be pretty thorough in an investigation. Yeah just freaks me out. I'd be curious to read that affidavit. Yeah, so then I saw Shaq just a regular day in the field and then you know, we decided to leave which they did eventually the police did in fact leave cuz I know they don't deal in ghosts they deal in real people. So of course, they couldn't

Insider says Petron is the fourth of apple's manufacturing partners to make the move to Vietnam. Foxconn. And Tag all have manufacturing setup there. It's worth noting that while the apple manufacturer will be going to be at. Phnom. Petron won't necessarily be, making, anything for apple in Vietnam. That said the piece points out that apple has been encouraging suppliers to move production out of China to avoid costly tariffs. Apple's online store went live on the subcontinent today tech crunch says for the first time in more than twenty years since apple began its operations in India, the iphone maker has started selling its products directly to consumers in the world's second largest smartphone market.

Alex Winter on how he and Keanu Reeves brought George Carlin's touching cameo to 'Bill & Ted Face the Music' (spoilers!)

"Jesse Thorn. Our guest is Alex Winter you probably know him best as bill from bill and Ted along with Keanu reeves he starred in bill and Ted's excellent adventure bill and Ted's bogus journey and the brand new movie bill and Ted face the music. Alex is also a director who's made several documentaries. His latest just came out a couple of months ago it's called show biscuits. It features interviews with former child stars about how their time working in the entertainment industry affected them. Let's get back to the conversation. There's a lot in this in this movie also about parenthood and the ties that bind to their and in particular how children kind of actualize the dreams of their parents in some ways for good and bad. I saw that theme also and show Biz kids. Your documentary that made me wonder if you saw parallel there to do you find that particularly compelling. I was raised by two artists. My parents were modern dancers. My mom had company in London, which is where I was born in my dad ultimately had a company in the Midwest. which is still going on when we moved to the states house quite young. I started out as a child actor professionally by like nine or ten I was working professionally by twelve thirteen I was in two long running probably shows back-back. Took me all the way into college so. My relationship to. My parents and to my family and the complexity of that and this idea of I wouldn't call destiny. That's the sort of of the movies that. But you know this idea of expectation and what is your life supposed to be, and of course, it's never going to be that and it shouldn't be that and and and how do the children affects the parents? How do the parents affect the children and of course now I'm a dad and so how'd now it's a triple layer cake right And Those are all those drams or fusing together and crazy ways and I had really wanted to make a film that allowed people who had experienced this firsthand meaning people that come up as child actors. I wanted them to be able to express the very nuanced layers of of that experience. Intimately I just had not seen that done and I had. you know obviously had done it myself in private, but I'd never kind of attacked at. So you that was very satisfying to be able to make and it was really odd to try to make show Biz because for the first time about ten years ago I couldn't find financing and it was exactly the concept. So it was very very strange to. Lovely. But strange to start making the film, shoot a bunch of interviews go away, make bill and Ted be dealing with you know Ted's problems with his dad our issues with our daughters live and our destiny that didn't end up the way it was supposed to in how did that impact everybody and you know, and then of course, like acting for the first time gangs I left act the acting business in after doing Dylan Ted to really Very consciously, and so acting again and I'm making a movie about child actors about parents and their children and it was it was like Oh did this all really need to happen at once was that necessary? I my Gosh. Every aspect of my entire life right now. So Yeah it was lovely and heavy Frankly yeah. Tell me about that decision to kind of I. Think you said, disappear for a minute and then come back and be doing more behind the scenes work than acting. Well. We talk about it in in show Biz kids and it's really not uncommon. It's. It's you know I had started acting I had a very, very public life from around ten years old to about twenty five on nonstop even through college. I was still acting on TV and doing commercials and TV shows. Nonstop and after bill and Tattoo amid and other film called freaked I was just psychologically. I was just worn out and I knew. That I was not I had some friends around me that were crashing hard at a couple that actually died. It was a pretty heavy scene. For Lot of us that had come up because we're all around the same age. So a lot of us were trying to transition from from you know sort of youth in the business too young adult business. We're not having the best time of it and and at the same time I gone to film school and was very very committed to my work as a writer director But it you know for me, I needed to make a conscious decision to get out of the public eye and just go live some normal life and I didn't feel like I'd really gotten to do that through pretty. Formative Adolescence and postal license and. Evan Rachel Wood speaks about this really well in the in the movie sodas will we? All everyone had the same experience I was sitting across from Diana Kerry, the hundred year old woman who was baby peggy, and she literally laid out my entire life story was completely jaw dropping. And that's what had happened to her when she had to really figure life out and she had to get away from the business and. And just be in the world and that's what I did I left. I left my acting representation and I moved and started a production company in London and I just shot commercials and wrote scripts and had a kid and live like regular Joe and. Got My head together and did some growing up and when I felt comfortable again, I started training again to act that was a while ago I just wanted to act for myself I didn't WanNA act. NAFTA, worry about it for paycheck I trained for a long time and it was just coincidentally had started kind of rumble back into life. But it was really lovely. It was a great way to come back can't owner. He's like, what am I, very, very dearest and closest friends in the world and. Everyone on that sat was family and if they weren't, they were really gracious and very happy to be there. So it was extremely sweet environment to step back into but Yeah, it was fun. But I I guess I needed the twenty five year break I I took it.

And also you can get my other show called drowning verdict, which is true crime in depth, sophie, sub me there. You'RE GONNA get those shows. Suze come out. To great way to be part of what I do, some always trying to deliver the best content I can't for you at the time that can do it and I gotta go with what I got. I look for new nuggets of information. Something that if you haven't heard before and I can share with you. Maybe can even share it with France. If you think the contents could have Kim always trying to let deliver bigger and better if I can. Thanks for your support. If you've checked me out on my co page, really appreciate that because you can just be more involved with the show that way helped me grow. Get better equipment etcetera. I'm also available. Where you get your podcasts whether it be iheart radio, spotify apple podcast, you can follow me there for not on Youtube. Also share me of course. That's a real honor to me. Have these sub have share? So if you haven't subbed, please do just come back for more. And I'M GONNA try to really meet high expectations. And I gotta go with what I got. Based on what I got and who I got with me. So today's episode, I've got compelling person of interest rather two of them. Who I would really consider are like UNICORNS in their chosen field of crime. And this subject of crime I've covered before. It's one of my favorite things to see on the big screen. Because it's just so thrilling I think in a lot ways that that's done. And one of the subjects who's going to be on film coming probably within a year, so going to be a true crime love story with bank robbery as the backdrop of why everything's happening. So if you're not familiar with Cowboy Bob for Peggy. Jo Tallus today you can become more familiar with her. A caller cowgirl ROB 'cause. She was lady and she's dressed up like a man a cowboy. To Rob Banks in the early nineties in the Dallas Texas area. For quite a while had confused the feds because. In this type of crime. Did you know according to the FBI that only five percent is not male who carries out these crimes, so it's overwhelmingly guys who do it. She had dressed up like a man at put on the. Fake Moustache Cowboy Hat. Hat padded her outfit. Never carried a gun never carried a gun, but just had that presence. So the feds had thought for longtime they're looking for. For Guy of course. Because only five percent. are other than that and in over sixty five hundred bank robberies last year is like five percent or less. So. Unicorn in that field so. Definitely, worthy for. The big screen if they're gonNA, do it from what happened in real life to fantasizing about a little bit more and putting on the big screen. It's a story that these to be told. So Peggy Jo, Tallus she had done these crimes and had never. Done Away with a whole lot. Thank the average for bank robbery about fifteen, hundred, twelve hundred. She was smart enough to say no dye packs. She didn't carry a gun with her. She was smart enough to say no tie dye packs and look for that so a lot of times. That's what will happen to. The personnel outside the bank, it'll explode on them and from there. It's just a mess. It really does have help capture. People have those pack explode, but she looked for that. She's really smart sophisticated. She knew what she was doing. And by all tencent purposes by all accounts. She was just a sweet lady who was into. Jack and banks, because it was ready and available on who would have thought that it was going to be a lady doing that? She had a great disguise. So this was. Early Nineties and with her story how they're gonNA play out on screen directed by Phillip Noyce who if you haven't heard of him before? One of my favorite movies is actually something he didn't. Ladies Call Dead Calm with Nicole Kidman. It's an awesome movie on the water. It's very thrilling, so he's at director. I think it's coming out within the next year or so. And, I think it'd be really good..

Hey, Tim, it's great to have you on the show today. Well, thanks for having me really appreciate it Marissa well. I'm looking forward to talking to you about rental properties. There are many reasons why. Why people want to purchase a home as we all know, people buy homes because they plan on living in them, or perhaps they're moving to a different location, and they need to get a home, or they're up sizing downsizing. There's many reasons, but in particular we're going to be going through the process of how to consider using property for either investment or current income, so like to. To start by asking you. What are some of the considerations that somebody should have if they were to decide to buy a rental property in terms of the purpose whether they want to use it long term, or as a way to increase their income on a monthly basis, I'm a big proponent of long term planning and long term thinking so really. There are strategies that I. I look at when a person is thinking about going into the landlord business. I is understanding that you are buying future income, so you are sacrificing a little bit now for the future, secondly is appreciation. The way houses appreciate in price is a bonus. I don't really consider that a primary factor but man. It's really good if you look at the history of owning houses third you. You. WanNa buy quality or break, even cash flow properties, so the cash flow at the beginning isn't so important, because the goal is that you own rental properties free and clear me no mortgage. That's where the magic is with owning investment properties speaking of that then how do we get to that point? So? Of course we're going to be talking about money and how the money? Money is going to be invested and there many ways to approach that we can put a minimum down payment and get a mortgage. We can put a larger down payment. We could probably cut the amount of payments that we put in so that we can own the home faster, or we can even pay in cash if we have it. So what are some of the options there? There and the pros and cons because I'm sure there are benefits to certain decisions, and I'd like to get a better understanding as to what we should be thinking about when we're thinking about making the investment while the first call would be to your realtor who is knowledgeable on rental properties and how that works, and typically your realtor really needs to own rental properties themselves so. So they have a better understanding of that. Really it's also up to the lender that you talk to to get that down typically, if you're buying and investment property, which means, you would not be living in it. You do have to put about twenty five percent down. That's a really good number to have. It gets you the better interest rate in it eliminates mortgage insurance which all. All has to do with cash flow another methodology of doing it though is if you're younger and you don't mind moving a few times, you can buy a property with the mindset that I'm going to turn this into a rental property and you can do that a few times over I recommend that people stay for at least two years in the House that they have gone. Gone cash is always king. You'll end up getting a better price on the house and the cash flow is immediate, but you wanna look and see what is the best fit for you based upon the cash flow, and what's called Roi, which is return on investment? Basically what percentage rate you're getting on the money you put in? We come across a lot of realtors in every realtor. Realtor as far as I'm aware, at least they specialize in different things. So how do I know what to ask in? How do I look for realtor? That has a really good knowledge specifically, when it comes to investing in real estate for some sort of rental income, there's questions you can ask real estate agents to Kinda Fair it out if they know about mental properties one. One is tell me what the ROI would be on rental properties if they don't know what that means, that's probably a good sign me, not WanNa. Use Them. I would ask them how many rental properties they own, and how many rental properties have they helped? Clients by those are the types of questions that you can ask also another great way of finding out who the good realtors. Realtors czar is cost some of the property management companies around and ask them. Who would you recommend I'm looking at buying rental properties? What real estate agents would you recommend that I use? That's a really good tip. Actually because they come across realtors that really specialize in this area, and so they'd be able to direct people to the right realtor that has experience in that area. Speaking of property management companies then when we're considering a property for this purpose, they're obviously different property types that we need to be thinking about. For example we want a duplex. Do we want the Condo a patio home single family home? Do we want to be in an area that has an Hoa or not, because there are definite advantages, and maybe disadvantages to those decisions based on our ultimate objective. So how do we decipher what the property type is that we should consider? That's something that our realtor could help us. Think about yes, absolutely and really the way you. You look at it is a term called risk versus reward. If you're willing to take more risk, the rewards are greater so for example when you're dealing with a town home or a condo. You don't have to take care of the outside. That's typically covered in the homeowners association dues not always, but usually. If you're risk averse to having to pay for things like roofs, exterior paint, also landscaping that can be very expensive. You may be better off going to a town home or a condo. The return is going to be a little bit less though the Roi will. will be a smaller percentage. That's really how you look at it. It all up to the individual how they WANNA do it. The same applies with property management. If you want a property manager to help you, there's no real standard rate typically somewhere between seven to ten percent of the monthly income that you received so that's going to take away from your our ally, but that means you manage it yourself, and they're certainly risks and rewards to that as well so it all depends on the individual, and what type of risk. They're willing to take getting into that then. Then in terms of managing yourself. I think that one of the things that people get concerned about is that they don't know enough about how to so. For example we have laws to consider we have to find the right tenants that we know are going to appreciate being in the home and taking care of the home end being their long-term. If that's what we're looking for, and then there's maintenance issues to consider as well as general expenses that sometimes we don't even think about front, so not sense. How do we go about learning about how we should handle? Handle it if we decide that we would like to do it ourselves. Versus hiring a professional are certainly books out there that you can read one that I read was called landlord. It's a really good book. The other way is your real estate agent should be able to help you navigate some of these things as well go online. Go to YouTube. You can do videos. There's plenty of information out there about how to do it yourself. If you're doing landlord, but certainly your real estate agent, they're knowledgeable in the investing side of things should be able to guide you. You and help you get started with that I've done that many times, so in other words do your research right I mean. There's a lot of tools and resources. Now that we have access to that. We never had before and that way. If we can gather as much information, upfront as possible will be more prepared. Absolutely real estate attorneys are real good resources well, they can do lease agreements for you. They can do. LLC's all sorts of things like that to help you. Protect yourself and have a good experience having rental properties. How do we know when it's? It's the right time. The values of properties increase and decrease in things fluctuate, and sometimes you're thinking to yourself. Oh, it might be a good time to invest. Because property values are higher now, and in some cases you're thinking. No, actually it's better to wait until they get lower. And of course we don't know we don't know when things are going to go up and down. They change a lot. So how do we know when we should start thinking about this? If this is an avenue that we want to pursue in the future well first of all I, think. Think, we can all say that it doesn't matter if it's nineteen. Hundred or twenty twenty real estate feels like it's always too expensive. I said that back in the eighties when I bought my first patio home at forty thousand dollars I thought that was ridiculous and boy. I wish I had thirty of those now, so there are things that we can look at and that are localized. The local market is what's important. The Denver Market for example since one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy seven. We've had an annual appreciation on real estate six point one percent even with the. But, there are indicators that I watch for from a localized methodology. The first one is employment, so if the employment numbers are going up now. I'm not talking about unemployment I'm talking about how many new jobs have been added to the market. If it's going up, that's a really good sign once it starts going down. That means it's going to be about twelve to eighteen months and real estate prices are going to start going down. That's typically what happened. Not always supply and demand is second, the greater the supply, the last demand, the lesser appreciation we have in houses, and that also affects rental rates and thirties affordability. How affordable! Affordable is the area that you're looking at. Those are the three things that I focused on when I look at. Is it a good time to buy or not? For the last five years up until last year, I was telling people. It's not a good time to buy. Because pricing was just not there. It's starting to now. We're starting to see home starting to cash flow, and that's the other thing that we look at so hope that answers your question in a nutshell, it definitely does him. This might not be the right fit for certain people, and so what I'd like to get a sense of is what does it. It typically look like to be a land owner to be somebody who's renting out property. What are some expectations that you need to have to determine whether or not? This is the right approach something that you should be thinking about for yourself well. There's a couple of things one of the things that I do sit down with people and talk about is how much extra money at retirement you want, and that helps me and where they're at as far as do. They want to be a landlord or not. Is there risk? Yes, you have to be able to not take personally when somebody would burger up your place and it's. It's probably going to happen. You do have to set money aside for repairs. You also have to look at things long. If you're not looking at it long term and have the discipline to look at it long term, this may not be the right fit for you. Everybody's heard of fixing flips. I typically don't like doing that, but in this case you WANNA, hold pay it off as quickly as possible so that your properties are free and clear and understand that you may have to go in and do some repair work, and if you're not comfortable doing that, it's probably not right for you, but if you have a long-term. long-term mindset and attitude, it's a great way to have additional income when you're retired. Coming in every single month, bats the goal, so in other words you need to understand what is required of you and how that's going to look in terms of how you're going to participate in the process, and if you don't feel it, something that you can do yourself, or at least be a part of an are not even interested in doing it then, perhaps, it's not a right fit, but if you feel like you're excited about it, and it's something you really want to be involved in this. Be something to consider not being involved with. With it, you can't have property management do that and that's perfectly fine. The real question is are you willing to look at this long term? Are you willing to make a little bit of sacrifice now for later? That's a really good tipped him. If people wanted to get a hold of you and ask you about more information regarding this, how do they reach you? There's a couple of different ways you can reach me by phone by number is three, zero, three, six, six, nine, two, six, seven six. You can email me at T -pointment H., Y. M.

Hey, Tim, it's great to have you on the show today. Well, thanks for having me really appreciate it Marissa well. I'm looking forward to talking to you about rental properties. There are many reasons why. Why people want to purchase a home as we all know, people buy homes because they plan on living in them, or perhaps they're moving to a different location, and they need to get a home, or they're up sizing downsizing. There's many reasons, but in particular we're going to be going through the process of how to consider using property for either investment or current income, so like to. To start by asking you. What are some of the considerations that somebody should have if they were to decide to buy a rental property in terms of the purpose whether they want to use it long term, or as a way to increase their income on a monthly basis, I'm a big proponent of long term planning and long term thinking so really. There are strategies that I. I look at when a person is thinking about going into the landlord business. I is understanding that you are buying future income, so you are sacrificing a little bit now for the future, secondly is appreciation. The way houses appreciate in price is a bonus. I don't really consider that a primary factor but man. It's really good if you look at the history of owning houses third you. You.

"There is a story that Elizabeth cotten got to name herself on the day. She started school. Her parents had a mess of kids and supposedly. They never really agreed on a name to call her when she was born in eighteen. Ninety three or eighteen ninety-five people disagree on birthdate. Which makes sense considering that she'd didn't even have a name anyway. The family just kinda settled into calling her little sister because she was the youngest sister. Of course a moniker. Like that didn't work for the teacher. Who asked for the child's name on the first day of school little sis had always liked the name Elizabeth? So that's what she told the teacher her name was and for the rest of her long and eventful life. That's how she was known though. Many of her friends would one day call her by nickname Lib. Little could she have known when she was just a girl that the name Elizabeth Cottonwood one day wind up in the Smithsonian be announced at the Grammy Awards and even lend itself to a Beautiful Park in Syracuse New York? There's another story about Elizabeth. Many years later as an adult and apparent herself she was working in a department store in Washington. Dc when she encountered a young girl near the same age. Elizabeth had been on that first day of school. This girl was lost and in tears because she had gotten separated from her mother while shopping as any child or parent who has stressful. He lived through. This situation knows it can be terrifying. But Elizabeth was kind and calm and the girl named Peggy immediately trusted her together. The two set out to find the girl's mother it didn't take long. But the chance encounter made history. Elizabeth cotten obviously made an impression on. Peggy's mom a woman named Ruth Crawford seeger because before long Elizabeth was working in their home helping to take care of the three kids cook and clean. They quickly bonded with her and she made the most of her time there. The seekers were a musical family. Father Charles was a musicologist that someone who studies music and how it develops in different cultures he worked for universities and the federal government to help document and preserve the music of African American native American Latin American cultures and more. The mother of the Family Ruth was a music teacher who published a book of Children's songs and the children were very interested in folk music especially the oldest child his name was Pete Seeger and he would be famous musician on his own for years. Elizabeth would share space in the home with the Family. Who's world seem to revolve around making sound? Someone was always learning practicing listening writing or singing. Something new little. Did they know that the woman in their midst was incredible musician herself honestly? Though she was so humble she might never have told them wouldn't stay hidden forever. Though as the days flowed by someone from the family found her playing one of the guitars in the home and in a very unique style that they had never really heard before embarrassed. She apologized for touching their instrument but they were more astonished by what they had just heard. Linda's family back home. In North Carolina had been musical to when she was a girl. Her folks sang spirituals. All the time and her brother had a guitar and Banjo. Which only seem to call to Elizabeth. Whenever he was at work she would sneak into his marvelous sounds. This made her brother angry and she was firmly told not to touch them again but she couldn't help herself. Elizabeth loved the sound of the string instruments. She found them awkward because she was left handed though her solution was to hold them upside down. Putting the low sounding strings. Closer to the grand high-sounding strings. Right up by her face was the opposite way that the instrument was intended but she made it work. She plucked the strings with her fingers. Two or three at a time which could create a counterpoint melodic lines at the same time. It's not easy to do but Elizabeth methodically learned to do it. When her brother's work schedule allowed of course eventually her brother moved out to start a life outside of the household and he had the nerve to take his own guitar and Banjo with him. This left poor young Lib and quite a dither.

"There is a story that Elizabeth cotten got to name herself on the day. She started school. Her parents had a mess of kids and supposedly. They never really agreed on a name to call her when she was born in eighteen. Ninety three or eighteen ninety-five people disagree on birthdate. Which makes sense considering that she'd didn't even have a name anyway. The family just kinda settled into calling her little sister because she was the youngest sister. Of course a moniker. Like that didn't work for the teacher. Who asked for the child's name on the first day of school little sis had always liked the name Elizabeth? So that's what she told the teacher her name was and for the rest of her long and eventful life. That's how she was known though. Many of her friends would one day call her by nickname Lib. Little could she have known when she was just a girl that the name Elizabeth Cottonwood one day wind up in the Smithsonian be announced at the Grammy Awards and even lend itself to a Beautiful Park in Syracuse New York? There's another story about Elizabeth. Many years later as an adult and apparent herself she was working in a department store in Washington. Dc when she encountered a young girl near the same age. Elizabeth had been on that first day of school. This girl was lost and in tears because she had gotten separated from her mother while shopping as any child or parent who has stressful. He lived through. This situation knows it can be terrifying. But Elizabeth was kind and calm and the girl named Peggy immediately trusted her together. The two set out to find the girl's mother it didn't take long. But the chance encounter made history. Elizabeth cotten obviously made an impression on. Peggy's mom a woman named Ruth Crawford seeger because before long Elizabeth was working in their home helping to take care of the three kids cook and clean. They quickly bonded with her and she made the most of her time there. The seekers were a musical family. Father Charles was a musicologist that someone who studies music and how it develops in different cultures he worked for universities and the federal government to help document and preserve the music of African American native American Latin American cultures and more. The mother of the Family Ruth was a music teacher who published a book of Children's songs and the children were very interested in folk music especially the oldest child his name was Pete Seeger and he would be famous musician on his own for years. Elizabeth would share space in the home with the Family. Who's world seem to revolve around making sound? Someone was always learning practicing listening writing or singing. Something new little. Did they know that the woman in their midst was incredible musician herself honestly? Though she was so humble she might never have told them wouldn't stay hidden forever. Though as the days flowed by someone from the family found her playing one of the guitars in the home and in a very unique style that they had never really heard before embarrassed. She apologized for touching their instrument but they were more astonished by what they had just heard. Linda's family back home. In North Carolina had been musical to when she was a girl. Her folks sang spirituals. All the time and her brother had a guitar and Banjo. Which only seem to call to Elizabeth. Whenever he was at work she would sneak into his marvelous sounds. This made her brother angry and she was firmly told not to touch them again but she couldn't help herself. Elizabeth loved the sound of the string instruments. She found them awkward because she was left handed though her solution was to hold them upside down. Putting the low sounding strings. Closer to the grand high-sounding strings. Right up by her face was the opposite way that the instrument was intended but she made it work. She plucked the strings with her fingers. Two or three at a time which could create a counterpoint melodic lines at the same time. It's not easy to do but Elizabeth methodically learned to do it. When her brother's work schedule allowed of course eventually her brother moved out to start a life outside of the household and he had the nerve to take his own guitar and Banjo with him. This left poor young Lib and quite a dither. In these days kids would often work to help the family which she did but she also saved some of the money for a guitar her own three dollars and seventy five cents. That is what her first guitar cost. And as she clearly remembered from that point on her poor mother never got any peace and quiet. Every spare moment was filled with music. Which sounds Nice. But you've got to remember. Elizabeth was learning by teaching herself. Luckily she was a quick study. When you spend that much time working hard on something you are bound to improve. That's how it works. She put in the time and before long. Elizabeth was not just playing guitar but playing incredibly well in her own unique finger style and she was also writing songs. One Song she wrote when she was just eleven years old was called freight train. If you'd told young Elizabeth that one day decades

Democracy Cant Thrive in Chaos

"Jane Fonda was arrested five times for environmental protest outside the Capitol this fall. She accepted a BAFTA film award while being taken into custody and photographs. The actor cast a striking figure in handcuffs in red will coat. It's a color fitting for the protests which are inspired by global school strikes and called Fire Drill. Fridays fresh from her arrest streak. The activists joined environmental justice campaigner and community organizer. Peggy Shepherd to record a live episode of Dare. I say in partnership with AMEX AT SAKS fifth avenue in New York City Peggy has been at the forefront of the Environmental Justice Movement in the US for a long time. She founded nonprofit organization. We Act for Environmental Justice in North Manhattan in the eighties. It helped low income New Yorkers in particular communities of color fight harmful environmental policies. It now fights for better environmental and health policies on a local and national level in the I live recorded episode of Dare. I say peggy and Jane discussed civil disobedience the green new deal resilience and why it is important for women to lead the climate conversation. How can we remedy empathy crisis? That has hurt generations of Americans. Why is the cult of rugged individualism driving climate disaster? What can older generations learned from teenagers at the decades on the frontlines? Peggy and Jane Have Not Stop Fighting. They are women who dare. Hi You know. We have a lot in common where activists arrested. But why have you decided to be arrested and to be active at this moment in time over Labor Day weekend? I felt great malaise because I drive an electric car and I do away with single use plastics and I make all those right personal lifestyle choices but I knew that they're not going to be able to scale up in time to get us where we need to be is a good place to start but it's no place to stop and so. I read a book by Klein that talked about a green new deal and talked about gratitude and it inspired me to get out of my comfort zone as Greta says we have to do and not behave business as usual as you know better than a lot of people. We have decades many decades more than forty years writing speeches and books and getting the word out about the science. What the science says. And we've marched and we've rallied and we've played nice and it hasn't worked enough and we only have eleven years left and so we have to up the stakes and I think we have to mobilize and go into the streets and put our bodies on the line and engage in civil disobedience and risk getting arrested. I don't WANNA BE ARRESTED. But you know you have to be willing to risk it so I went. I moved to DC for four months to win gaijin fired real Fridays because Fridays is the day that Greta and the student climate strikers have chosen to strike for climate so I want to support them and helpless their message teenagers today were born more than a decade after NASA scientists warned Congress about climate change in nineteen eighty eight. James Hansen told lawmakers at the time that he was ninety nine percent sure that human activity was causing temperatures to rise. Teenagers today have inherited the climate crisis. They have grown up. In a world of apocalyptic headlines and increasingly volatile weather. It's no surprise that they are extremely intelligent educated and now taking to the streets sweetest teenager. Greta Tonsberg inspired a wave of student protests across the world when she skipped school to strike outside of her country's parliament. And so how do you feel that? We really can motivate young people and youth to really be the strong activists that they need because they are going to inherit this climate this globe right now. What I'm feeling is I don't need to motivate them. They're motivating me. They're the ones because they see that we've taken their future not we. The fossil fuel industry has is robbing them of the future and we can't let them shoulder this burden by themselves. So Granny's unite. Older people have to get out there and and we have to stand along side them. This is a collective crisis that's going to require a collective solution that means all of us together because it is a stomach and we know that we can each take the issues that we need. Whether it's changing light bulbs whether it's recycling. We know that we can do all of those things. But we know that it's systemic and that we gotta come together collectively to educate our elected officials and to pressure the policymakers to really pass the kind of legislation that we all need. But we know that we can't do that with the message. Simply reducing carpet or a message. Simple energy efficiency. We've got a really embraced the values that appeal to all of our communities because Oliver Communities are not whole. They're not healthy. We know that millions of people in this country are living with bad air. They don't have clean water and they are disproportionately impacted by pollution and the Environmental Justice Movement has really for the last thirty years were to achieve environmental protection for all communities and we know also that when we talk about climate change and you hear people talk about climate justice. Climate Justice is not just a cool phrase. It's really a term that is focused on the most vulnerable communities. And how we've got to take action to ensure that the most vulnerable are protected because when that happens we're all protected and so we've got agreement deal and we know that that's been an important framework that's been proposed and it's wonderful that she was not prescriptive. Afc and the others who have talked about this framework we know that it has motivated sectors of of our country to get together and fill in the blanks. What they think is a green new deal what they need for their communities and for their lives and that's been a very important motivator. I think in this moment for a long time. There's been this rap that the environmental movement is white and elite. I think even Obama kind of felt that way but my experience is that that is not the case and then in fact people of color who live in the frontline communities have been very much at the forefront of the environmental movement and are the bravest strongest voices. It's a stereotype that people of color don't really care about the environment. Because they're really concerned with with jobs and food and of course we're all concerned with that but what? I've found predominantly above ninety sixth street when we have monthly membership meetings. It's not the more fluent Brown's donors who are coming out on these sites. It's people from public housing. We get so many calls about air pollution coming into their apartments about odors and emissions from trucks cars buses. We have worker training program for under employed young men and we invited them to come to our membership meetings to hear about issues of climate change or toxins in and chemicals cosmetics and they were able to understand the issue they were able for the probably the first time in their lives to talk to an elected official and tell them what they felt in what they needed and so it's about support. People know what they need. They just need some support to be able to advocate and to be able to. Maybe have a place to come and use computer. Have a place to come and ask some key questions. Let me just tell you that the upcoming mayoral public housing tenants are going to be a major factor in who gets elected and we're going to be organizing them and there's coalitions all over the city to ensure that some of the most vulnerable people are the ones who are going to be part of the solution and so I would simply say that the most vulnerable when we address them we lift all boats. It's not about trickle down. It's about lifting everyone up together and that's what creates an equitable and just society.

Minisode: Mob Dogs and Remembering the Kent State Massacre

"Subject line gives it away so I'll just read it. Greetings from the Mid West. Let's get right into it. It was the mid eighties and my mom had a wild perm and my brother and I were not yet around to drive her. And My Dad Bananas Bananas premiered last week on the great network from code murder. My parents had just bought their first home in a suburb just south west to Chicago. I just did that with a Chicago accent Chicago. One day the real estate agent that sold them. Their house showed up at their door with the dog and asked them if they wanted to keep it. My Mom being the Animal Lover. She is happily took him in without question. How it doesn't happen to me. I want that to happen to me. Ding Dong yes. Do you want the best dog ever? Yes he was a beautiful amber and red golden retriever. That my parents named Duke rolled up beautiful being footage stock. The famous talking been`do apparently the real estate agent. Let's call her. Peggy was in the process of showing a nearby home that had belonged to a Chicago mobster. Who was recently murdered? The man had left behind his widow as well as his dog. You may see where this is going. He noticed that the mobster's widow would leave the dog tied up in the backyard all day long and did not seem to care for him at all so one day she took matters into her own hands snuck into the ladies backyard all my the dog and brought him to my parents. As far as my parents know the woman never went looking for him which was for the best. Since I would imagine it'd be it'd be bad to piss off a mobster's widow when I asked my mom to tell me more about the story she also mentioned that Duke was supposedly a gift from one mobster to another. He was purchased and Likely a pretty expensive present. My mom adopts all her pets from shelters so duke was the only purebred dog. She's ever had my parents say the duke was one of the sweetest dogs and I can only wonder what kinds of things he saw before he ended up with them. I hope you enjoyed this story. It's one of my family's favorites. Thank you all for what you do. And for keeping me company as I run up and down my stairs in an attempt to exercise from home seeing you in Milwaukee last May was a dream come true and I hope to see another live show when this is all over. We do to stay. Well S. T. G. M. A. That's a great story. That's a great story. I WANNA mobbed odd little lot lately. Dangerous that real estate agent was a very brave woman. The AC for her bold okay. This one just goes hi. I just finished the latest episode about the Kent State Massacre. My husband's from Kent and his whole family has a connection to the university in one way or another. The first time I went back with him his mom was driving us around showing us things in town when we got to campus. She drove us to the now parking lot. Where the massacre happened and began to tell us her story of that day but first a meet cute. My mother-in-law was in the first nursing class at Kent State. And My father-in-law drove for the campus. Bus Service several times a week. He drove the nursing students to Cleveland to complete training at hospital there after a few trips he and my husband's mom hit it off and began dating. I'm not sure the amount of time they were dating before the massacre but it was enough time that he knew her family well and had been to her parents house many times on the day. The massacre tensions on campus were high and my mother-in-law was in her dorm just behind the hill. Where the shooting took place. She watched from her window. As students came pouring over the hill following the gunshots. She then got the order that everyone had to be off campus immediately and got a ride back to Cleveland to her parents. House with some people from her dorm this whole time. She knew that my father in law was somewhere on campus but had not been able to get a hold of him all day. She worried as she sat at her parents house. Not Knowing if he was okay or not as they were getting ready to eat dinner. A bus pulled onto the suburban neighborhood street where her parents lived. She was relieved. As my father-in-law got out of the bus and exhaustedly sat down to dinner with them. Turns out as soon as he heard about the evacuation order. He began filling up the campus bus with students and drove back and forth to Cleveland. All Day it's about I know it's about a forty five minute drive to get students to the airport and other safe places. They needed to go. The whole family was so relieved to see that last one at pulled up on that little neighborhoods street. This story struck me in this time that we are seeing how people who do jobs. We normally wouldn't stop to think about can be realized as essential in the wake of the tragedy my father-in-law knew it was essential for the students to get out and realized he had the ability to do that. He kept working for the campus bus service and eventually went on to run it for a few years. He and my mother in law spent the rest of their lives in Kent and raise four kids. Who all went to Kent State? Not a May. Fourth goes by that. My husband doesn't take a moment to recognize an important part of history. That day is even though it happened before he was born. Stay sexy and flirt with your bus driver Rachel. Oh I love that so good all I know so good luck for the helpers. Everyone is Mr Roger

Yeah Yeah Wednesday just Just left me. We're recording on on a Thursday crutches. Thursday it's allegedly. Yeah we're all like messed up and like my schedule has totally I? Everything is just is just like kind of a weird Amorphous Blob of time and it's every day is a question of like. How am I going to sculpt this time blob and every day as a surprise? Yeah how fun. Yeah it's a really good time But actually so that's a that's a transition that I'm going to take advantage of talking about this article Yes it has. Oh with the headline training for this our entire lives. And it's by. It's by Todd EMCO. Who's a listener of the struggle bus and the the dog parent of Piggy a very adorable service animal legged SOG piggy offer talk about Peggy for a second piggy is literally the best thing ever piggy is emotional service dog as well and can tell when you're feeling sad and goes up to people randomly and just knows when they're feeling sad so piggies doing overtime? Feel Yeah I feel like yeah piggies like working around the clock probably because picky so good at like human beings But todd takes piggy to schools and and Kids come up to piggy initials relieved beautiful disease. There's a lot of videos about Peggy. But were all linked to this on. Go Bus PODCAST. Dot Com this. Article's really interesting so yes there is really at article by Todd. And it's like talking about how What will the idea is basically that there are many people out there who are what what everyone is experiencing right now in a way there are people who have been kind of you know quote unquote like he says training for this their entire lives so lang todd says as as a severe obsessive compulsive disorder post traumatic stress disorder anxiety sufferer someone with compromised immune system? I know that people like me of spending our entire lives self isolating compulsively washing your hands in dealing with systemic exploitation of our plight and then the article he just he just goes on to talk about the various strategies that He uses in. That are familiar to him for like just dealing with the reality that we're in right now and it's really it's really interesting. It's really helpful. It's published in a mad in Asia Pacific and you can willing to it in the show notes but it's it's really good. I reread at this morning. And there's just like just a bunch of Just like awesome tips in there and not just tips but like just someone talking about you know aspects of a lot of us are feeling right now and it just feels really nice to kind of have that you know be recognized like called out so check that out as someone who has. Ocd and anxiety These are not the things I'm used to like washing. The hands is not my thing. You know checking doors or you know not talking to people and so. I've learned to adapt right so I think it's it's a really beat Florida about adapting and and how our anxiety is you know it can be real and you know we. We talk a lot about What's the word you use the Rip Van Winkle. Yeah no but sort of like just sort of like over thinking things and thinking like Oh. This isn't a catastrophic catastrophic thinking. That's all right. Thank you and and at this point we can think that way and I think that that's in in a very strange way Very welcome for those of us who have catastrophic thinking it's like okay Yeah yeah one thing that like. I can't remember if you and me were talking about this I forget who I spoke about anything on Zoom meeting with the I know. Yeah totally but like I. I've been feeling like Like my in a weird way. I especially felt this way in the very beginning of all of this I when people were like really starting to come around to how serious this was When people finally started to come around I was. I felt like finally relieved in a way. Oh well yeah absolutely but like that my like my like anxiety and vigilance about the world and its dangers and being safe that like other people were finally like thinking about that too and there are many people who think about that all the time because there are plenty of people in our country who are under extreme threat all the time just by virtue of they are but but like. I think that until this happened and like reality set in for a lot of people There were there. Were just a lot of people who aren't accustomed to thinking about what it means to live in uncertainty and to feel you know that the state not only will not protect you but is actively harming you And that there's chaos outside your doors and all the stuff and there's something about like people kind of also realizing that that's happening that made me feel like finally people are getting what I've always gotten like you know just because like we. We all have our own things that were bringing to everything in like my one of the things I bring to. Everything is being hyper vigilant and being like Yeah like thinking catastrophically cause me to spiral and have like not unproductive thoughts but cows probably thinking is also what has like my my like history of catastrophic making my propensity for it is. I think what has positioned me me personally to like. Be Relatively okay during all of this Yeah I'm very surprised. How calm I am during all this. You know I went through my spiral a few weeks ago. Like oh no and now like I'm good right so it's like these are things that we we just talked to our doctors and talk to our friends and it turns out that a lot of people that we know have had this or are carriers and it's very serious and we should take seriously but I like that people are well. I don't like anything about this but I like the people are finally taking it seriously and so when I tell people they're like oh myself as well and I'm like oh now we're sharing and unfortunately I mean this may be we'll go into your your next segment of debris Jabra of I really wish people took this more seriously if they aren't already Know New Yorkers are taking this seriously because we're very close spaces but I see a lot of things on social media where people are like but can I just walk around the block and do this friend and it's like no no. You're hurting us. If you if you heard other people you could be a carrier. I'm sorry to get negative sally. That's fine but do you want to like. How are you feeling are you? Are you doing? Okay just want people to know listening wisely. Yes how allies I am doing. A thousand percent better. I have I still have a low fever which is weird but you know it is what it is and I feel a thousand percent better. I've been just cleaning the apartment and cook and food as much as I can the even though my landlord turned the gas off. But that's another subject entirely

"peggy she" Discussed on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

"All that's all. Yeah it's interesting. I'm in general like philosophy one. Oh one you always debate pornography like the debate abortion debate pornography all these different things. I have always been pro pornography. I think it's liberty and are more who's GonNa decide what's pornography who's not yet the the porn that is most popular. Is I find disturbing. Yeah I find it to be very violent and aggressive and not even mirroring. What real sex is live? That's the big problem. I think I don't think I mean. Yeah we debate whether porn should be allowed or not. That seems like a different debate than just. Is it healthy? It's not. It's not good for these young brains to be exposed to this non reality of sex. These like juiced up fucking meat heads pounding some eighty pound year old. Yeah Poucher Office. Eighty pound gail so aggressively. Yeah it's a rough well. Even Peggy said something that I thought was so interesting. That Curls Watch A to of course but said girls mainly watch. It almost is like a playbook like this is how I should act during sex. I should make these sounds. I should do this. Which is yeah yeah? I believe that she's right. That probably a lot of girls. Watch it right but I also think Dr Alex you don't know it turns people on. I think a lot of women. Watch it for stimulation to so. I think it's a little. I guess I always. I always bristle a little bit. When there's some implication that women can't don't do anything on their own accord that it would just be to please? A man feels a little dismissive of like women's agency. I don't even know if it's just a please man. It's it's like this is my role in sex. What it's supposed to look like. This is what I faced. Looks like when you're in that because like I don't think it's about pleasing a guy it's just like well. I guess this is what it's supposed to be. It's the same thing that's happening with the boys of like well. I guess this is what it's supposed to be big dicks lasting a long time and all this other none of that's necessarily true normal or normal at all but I feel girls even just from seeing movies take away. An idea should look like and it. That's not necessarily true right. Never you've never watched pornography right. I know we watched it once in college. Like a bunch of US watched watched Joe. Yeah but I've never watched it seriously now right. You can't imagine it being sexy now. Oh Yeah I have enjoyed it at times but again. It's one of the few anomalies in my kind of addictive personality. Which one is. I can gamble normally doesn't get weird. Yeah and then also pornography of always been able to kind of take it or leave it. Yeah immagination as you said. Oh it's razor-sharp I need very little to go on now when you're masturbating you're fantasizing Do you does the fantasy have to be plausible because for me. It has to be incredibly plausible. Some people like jerk off to like movie stars and stuff. I can't do that or you can. It does not have to be plausible. And it's not even like it's not even like full full.

"Come on her face said that was it like what would it be like to kiss her? What would you come on? That is over the line. I don't want that in my. I don't want this image of thoughts in my head I think about it. Like with jumpsuits like the first time you have this but like the first time. I saw somebody wearing a jumpsuit. I thought recently I thought. Oh what's the second time you see the MARINA GERMS? That your dad the third time. You're like me a jumpsuit. It it just gets in your heads guys who said Oh. It doesn't affect me at all. It's just like sneezing but you know we know that even when you think it doesn't affect you and then there was some guys who really felt like whether it was. I don't I can't say whether it was true or not but they felt harmed by their park consumption and they had never told another adult dot and they wanted to talk to me specifically. I wasn't even watching porn and when I was new to masturbating I felt so guilty. We weren't even a religious house. I was constantly trying to quit that activity. I thought it was a Horn of me in Showed a total lack of control. And I was regularly trying to monitor that in and I couldn't so I can only imagine if I had on top of that Objectively some gnarly images. I'm tying with this already behavior. I'm for whatever reason shameful of in the nets in there to shame boys when when talking about it for sure right and to recognize like. I said sex curiosities normal. Masturbation is normal and to just kind of think about some of the stuff like if you know college corner or less satisfied with their sex lives on but their performance summit partners bodies managed thing to know. Sure the thing that one guy said to me that really affected me was even about any of that he just said you know. I feel like pornography for this generation. It's it's affected our ability to be innocent in a sexual relationship and just explore sex without preconceived ideas he said that's just been fucked by porn for us. Will you kinda start knowing every single conceivable thing that could happen? Yeah right you've seen every reese and yet the yes. Yes yes nothing and I mean I don't know I don't know what the ultimate impact is of all of that but I know it's a huge change and I don't think that we can raise kids in a culture of explicit media and not even porn but like regular media has gotten much more explicit. And pretend like we don't have to talk to them about it or I mean that's another thing with girls like we have all these years that I've been writing girls we've recognized I'm sure as a parent you recognize that the media images out there can be harmful to girls right. You knew that right. They can reduce them to their body. Their objectified there. You know whatever. It's bad for the mental health. All these things we know. So we've done a much better. Job of like Shrunk Union with them about media leaders in these organizations and there's like psychologists and advocates and activists and parents and everybody's like all careful and conscious about how we raise our girls in this media culture but boys are in the same stew right and even my current circles like most. La Parents are hyper aware of not creating potential of food dismay. But no one's thinking about that for the boys at all crossing online. No one's worried at all. No that's my. That's my point so we know how to do this. We've done it with girls. We know how to create media literacy. At least I mean it's not perfect on it doesn't always you know but we try. We try to give them because we can't make the meeting go away. We try to give them a Lens. We try to give them a critique. Nobody's doing that with boys. Nobody's during the boys and I feel like that's something that isn't even about like you know saying the word clitoris to your son which may be. You'd rather put yourself on the eye with a fork. Do but you know you can like start pointing out. I mean I remember when my daughter was really little. She's sixteen but when she was a like you know when she was little mood watch you know whatever animated films and just like. Hey honey you know look. The debt characters is bigger than arrests. Your is bigger than yours is bigger than your waist like. Where does she keep her uterus? Is it in her purse. Like what is going on I. I wouldn't have said that if I had a son arrived right. Yeah Yeah Yeah we say to. Our girls were reading We came under fire about this but we we are no way saying you shouldn't read snowing the seven doors. We love it. We still read it but we're always like kind of weird. A stranger came in. Kiss this woman who is dead. Isn't that kind of bizarre? Without even asking the NECROPHILIAC. Anne's not ask permission right. Just something to observe the Democrat but those are like those little weird. I mean those things with your daughters even learn how did like throw him in all the time. But it's because like you think okay the culture is going to try to brainwash your daughter right and you gotta get in there. I gotta get it so that she hears your voice whenever she sees that. Snow had story saying well. That's weird. Isn't you know like you want her to hear that? But we haven't really thought about like how our boys need that from US too. Yeah well I'm I'm just delighted that you've Explored this topic. It seems still in its infancy where we're talking about what we need to do to get boys. That's who decided with me too thing like on one hand it's created this imperative to reduce sexual violence super important but it's also created this really positive and exciting opportunity to engage boys in all these conversations about Saxon intimacy and gender dynamics masculinity in ways that we never have and that is like a tremendously exciting possibility to me. Yeah you're right I don't I can't imagine there's not a household where this topic doesn't come up comes up with mine all the time. I mean it's in the news all the time and it's one of the only happy accidents of the whole thing is like it is starting a conversation. That's long overdue right. And that doesn't by the way we're only be negative but can also be about the positive. How do we help people get their? Yeah well Peggy thank you so much. For flying down yeah. I'm about a third of the way to the book and I absolutely love it. It's just I like it as much is on the masculine. It's really great. I also like how Franken is thank you. I appreciate that you're talking talking talking to them. Nothing's kind of sugar coated. It's like now this is a glimpse. This is what it is Super Fun. It's great all.

"Was more acceptable for the girls. Girls were more likely to identify as bisexual Pan Sexual To be interested in going out with translator. Trans Girls Boys still felt pre-tape boxed me less so a little bit but I think that had moved a lot less okay. Because that's what I saw. Yeah and what impact is that having on the conventional definitions of masculinity and the roles? Everyone's playing you know. I did look at transpose. To agree not not like hugely. But Did Stephanie. Part of the book and it was. I mean. They're not as one guy said you know we're not sent down like angels from Heaven to Change Your Masculinity we exists. Yeah Yeah And some of them just wanted to be the most conventional of guys but sometimes they pushed guy other guys to not like question you know whether they were really men or anything like that. To sort of broaden their ideas what does it actually mean to be mailed? What does it actually mean to be a man? What does it actually mean to engage in these things and that guy in particular would talk about? He's said a Lotta sense like well you know. That's not my masculinity or he talked about it like this dynamic thing he was building. That is so interesting I never heard any other guy. I never heard like a we would now call a straight guy right say well. That's not my masculinity and I thought what an interesting way of looking at it that was looking at masculinity is something that you're creating kind of in making decisions about and this is my masculinity but that over there That's not the kind of fascinating night. Just wonder if now that there are. There's more acceptance of gay men and their as you say holding offices in Student Council and they're you know not running for president running for president and not relegated to the fringes of school if that is somehow encouraging going like wait. If that's the worst thing I can be in. Everyone likes this guy like can I move closer to the you know what I'm saying? I would hope that is happening. Some communities that you know near conventional peanuts toting guy was friends with a straight guy with had they would have gay friends transplants. But there was like I think there was a quota in their head. A little bit like thinking in this many trans and gay friends. You have too many them like you know. Start TO MIT than they may be. Start will be people will question. It was like weird you know was that you could slice it but I did see that the fraternity guys that I talked to. They had one guy who was like you know big ten school really Midwest Dude. They had a transplant there in their frat. Oh no kidding. Yeah and that really he said if I ever. It is Not so sure about this. But that over time you know they they were accepting and that that had broadened their idea of what masculinity was to. It did have kind of a good effect again. Like I said transplant Not really my job right right right Nor is it now? How about pornography? So how when we? Yeah when we talk about why. Us Idiot guys. Have this notion of like big Dick and lasts a long time. Because that's what you're seeing porno right. You're not seeing the guy's not clearly stimulating the girls. He's having sex with ninety nine percent of the time in a porno. Yeah if that's a never been more accessible ever history of the world and if that's the only version of sex scene and this is the default sex educator yes now. That's a huge problem. There's there's a lot of racial politics at play. Important black guys penises or black women not being present or only certain kind of black bodies or how Asian women are depicted. I mean all kinds of race stuff in porn and I would ask what is about that all the time like. How do you deal with the racism and they go? What what these guys who would see racism like in their normal lives. Of course they would. They were very aware but it was like they left. That's there's like you leave so much the door when you start looking through the porno videos that that is just one more thing even at the door. But it's another thing that's affecting you. You're just not acknowledging that it's there reading Missoula the Jon Krakauer bug in one of the cases was this you know to again blackout drunk people. This guy's start digitally penetrating this girl in Cheese. Like kind of coming in and out and then she says stop and he says No. I'm GonNa make you score in this boys a virgin. He doesn't know he thinks his job is in a sexual experiences. Then make someone score. That's what he's been led to believe is the norm or the high water mark of proficiency in bed. Yeah and that's why I know. And that's that is why we can't we? GotTa Talk to you. Know to to ignore what boys are absorbing in girls too because girls look at look at it more like a manual for what guys want right but if we're ignoring because it's it's really different and you have to. I mean I always like to frame this saying curiosity about sex's normal You know. Masturbation gay no good everybody and you know. There's all kinds of different porn and a lot of some people. Consider some form porn to be feminist corner ethical porn or whatever it is A.

"But I feel like there's a whole I had to code switch to those in here being vulnerable and then I can't honk. Yeah okay but that's guy mode. I did not but I coach switched because shing back. Yeah yeah interesting. The there's one piece that was written after this book came out In Men's health by this Guy Brad. Weiner's he was. He said that he felt that. He saw himself reflected in some of the me too stuff. His behavior his past not accused key recognize. Oh yeah you know. And he's like okay. So how am I gonNa do this differently with my kid. And he like took seriously the stuff in the book and really grappled with and went in like had these conversations with his son. I felt like I was watching watching an action. It was really really cool but but it was struggling with. How do you have these conversations with boys on support them in making that kind of change or just thinking about their dynamics with women or any of this stuff vulnerabilities like guys vulnerability especially when they're drunk To over preceding yes You know just seeing anything. That girl does or says any active friendliness. It's on right now. How to about that he will. That's my big so so the thing I've said on here before is I agree wholeheartedly with the direction it's going. I think God it's going directions going again. I have two daughters thank God. It's going the direction it's going with. That said I think the entire traditional role of a man pursues a woman. She's got the brake pedal and he's got the gas pedal that too has to change because people have to hook up. People need to Fall in love and have sex. So yes we're going to teach the guys as we should put the fucking brakes on but we also have to tell. Ub ASSERTIVE UNM sex. You pursue you know what I'm saying like if they do had this whole thought about that recently because I I was talking at a at a girls school and this dad raised his hand and said I just. I'm really troubled by the way we've been talking about consent like it's something that boys are getting from girls and that is still not you know giving girls the agency right. So is writing this book and I was Writing about this whole thing about gay guys how they're better at negotiating consent and like navigating consent and straight people. And how the because they kind of have to learn how to do that. Because it's not like what's going to happen with whom or how is that. There's more defined roles that they have to have a discussion doing what that's what I'm thinking about. Whatever you're going to do and an so. Dan Savage so Dan said to me at the beginning of a gain connor with two guys that they'll say the magic words. What are you into Manhattan moment? You will anything in and anything out. Everything's on the table. And you have this discussion and it's like the kind of open to question you. Wish people would ask in a section of all people with us but I started thinking about it after I was like. Yeah that's really great and I wrote about that and I said you know this'll be ideal after that Moore recently been thinking but dance. Gay Sex with men If you had heterosexual young people and and a guy asked that question the answer and this is back to these hidden. The the girls answer might be. I have no earthly idea right. So where do we go from there? Yeah how do we get from that? Who People being men and women young men and young women in particular starting their sexual experiences being able to ask that question and answer that For Real because that's when we're going to be where we need to be with stuff entirely and I yeah I just worry that the I just worry who's instigating and you're right and did the. The concepts never even considered whether the guy gave consent. I've never even heard. I've never read one line of Writing About Guy. Giving each book. Oh Okay I'm not. They're not that far..

"CJ. Pasco who who writes about? This is a sociologist and Oregon. Did this whole thing where she looked at a thousand tweets with the Hash Tag. No Homo Guy. Yes by the way. We've talked about this on here before. I've received many of them like a Guy Will WanNa tell me he liked me in a movie and that's just way too vulnerable so they'd have no hormone then that's exactly what she said. She said what you see when you look at the mall is that it's used as a shield so that they can express normal emotions of affection or connection and the no. Hama allows them to do that by using this kind of homophobic slurs slash joke in the process. I'm forty five. I was just in the hospital with my friend. My friend was receiving is back in Michigan receiving these beautiful texts from his friends. You know. He's a roofer reason manual labor. His friends are also in these. These tags were like dude. Scared me so much so glad you're safe in the hospital and then straight into some kind of a homophobic epitaphs like it's the same thing as home like Oh man. That was hard. I just said I was worried about you. I'm glad you're safe. And now I gotta throw something out there to just kind of negate the whole thing and I pointed out to him and he is like. Oh my God. It's so true and we just went through all of them. Every one hundred percent of them had some kind of disclaimer. It exists within the gay community as well because we have a very very good friend Jess. Who's gay and we're doing this separate ten episode podcast together about relationships and he talks about being gay and within those relationships how femininity is also devalued valued. Exactly so it's it's a hard thing to come back because it's everywhere it's even coming from the source like yeah women can treat men that we do. There's research that says that women say they want to be vulnerable but when they are not so happy about it Sinoe so can collude as well like. I think. I'm only getting away with it because I'm also like embarrassingly committed. All these hyper masculine. Things like off roading and fighting all these things were that bought me enough leeway to also be very vulnerable. Even I I feel like there's some weird balancing act in my life where it's like. Oh I can get away with all that I can wear a ponytail. I can do this because I'm doing that so I so someone could just blatantly. Call me back and that's your version of no home. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah the same thing genuinely like those things but yes yes. It is now okay. There's a call for parents to talk about sex. And what specifically do you think parents should be saying about sex with this book with boys and sex? I did something different with my books. I I've tended to always like take the reader into some situation. 'cause like when you're a writer the first thing learned showing not tell right right so I was I. Well have to give an example of what this looks like in a classroom or a prison. I'm profiling and I kept trying with boys and sex. Trying like to go to different programs going to classrooms and I just kept thinking. This isn't right. This isn't right and I think it was because I've been writing about teenagers and sexuality for nine years now and.

"The whole premise is wrong in a way right yet will by the way the reward for finding the right guy is not that you'll enjoy it or have an orgasm or find joy in intimacy is just that you won't have the shame and regret right. He won't be made a fool of in made to be a slut and all these other. Pejoratives is true that most young people want to explore sexuality and a trusting relationship. But you know we just act like doing this one thing one time suddenly going to make you experienced or only make you know something that you don't know and we all know that's a lie if you make out with somebody you're fifteen years old and you make out with somebody for three hours. You're experimenting with like sensuality in Communication. And you'RE GONNA learn a heck of a lot more than if you get drunk at a party and the random to punch your visa card. You know no you're right. The the much bigger source of that feeling of intimacy and love and connection is actually in eroticism. Sensuality right. Yeah okay so with girls. There's that issue there's also these two options on the table right. Which is year either a prude. Or you're a slot right those both of which are negative. Who had you know? What's the right number? How do you? How do you like one girl said to me? Usually the opposite of a negative is a positive but when you're talking about and sex there's two negatives so where do you go on that poll and where you are now so personally? I was super sexual really young. I was molested when I was younger. So it's hard for me to iron out what I think. A humans just natural disposition is to that I certainly desired at greatly. I don't know how much I can speak to. You like your average boy but I definitely do remember having many friends who I was shocked to learn like didn't WanNa have sex so like I was subscribing to this serotype as well that like boys just WanNa have sex and then occasionally I would have a friend that would be like yeah. I'm scared to do that and I was like. Oh I wasn't expecting that. Yeah I mean that's you know one of the things that I talk a lot about with boys. Is that stereotype? Throw down to fuck you know. They aren't necessarily. There's that pressure that you're supposed to be that way guide in the hallway. You get status. That's a big way to get status hooking up with as many as possible with as little as possible in trading partners disposable and guys had related to that all kinds of different ways. I mean I was thinking about this one guy who said he'd had a bunch of hoops in college that included intercourse. And he said it's it's weird because it's like there's not a lot of I contact. It's a lot of conversation and it's like you're acting vulnerable without being vulnerable. Yeah you're you're you're you're taking physical steps of vulnerability but there's really no emotional wounds and vulnerability issue is really interests you and oh big time. Yeah sometimes after book. He don't realize what it's about till after you write it And they start talking about it and I realized that really at the heart of this book and you see the word vulnerables like a neon sign throughout the book. Is that issue of guys. Rustling with the taboo against vulnerability whether it's that they're rejecting it or denying it or embracing it or capitulating it. It's all of it whether you're talking about the masculinity itself or all the different ways that I talk about the relationship to sex and it's always dancing around that it's always trying to reckon with that and with the wall you know that they've all put up between themselves that vulnerable self in the world yet and I was really acutely interested in how things have changed since I was that age when I was reading your book and what I saw which was completely consistent is still the worst thing you can be is a girl in any capacity so being vulnerable as being girly or you know not wanting to fuck would be girly and all these things. The only thing beyond that of course is to be a fag right and so I was curious if that was still the thing and it is still a thing but then I was really interested to hear that. They are very explicit about the fact that they don't mean gay right they still say fag but they just WanNa be clear. We're not talking. We're not saying that about sexual right. I mean th th. There are a lot of differences with poison. I mean they have female friends. They see girls as totally deserving of their places in the classroom and you know on the playing field leadership and in professional. I mean all that is there too. And that's why was started when we were talking earlier about grills on the contradiction that I was always interested in these contradictions between the new and the old. I think that's what's going on with guys like this sort of inflection. Point in a way with boys who were. We were with girls twenty-five years ago. And so that stuff you know when I would say what's the ideal guy they would still be saying. Yeah athleticism dominance aggression sexual conquest emotional support themself lettuces. All I was shocked I thought it was like famous. Still still absolutely you know when I say that. Even though that wasn't necessarily they were also think about what's small percentage of the high school population that applies to what percentage of people are athletes or are actively involved in that. You know it less than ten percents. You've got an ideal that less than ten percent of the people are going to achieve. It's just a kind of a bad recipe right out of the game. You know right but back to the you know to the fact thing. It didn't mean to them. Necessarily that they were questioning. Somebody's sexual orientation and they would say. I would never say that I have gay friends. I would never say that capers and that makes it. Okay I don't think so but it was about masculinity right and there's this is the antithesis of masculinity and it can be it's like slot can mean anything can be applied to anything it can you know and so it creates like when they talk about the man box or the. Maske live in or whatever you WANNA call it that draws the line stay tuned.

"Yes. Welcome thank you. Thank you for Traveling today to come see us from Berkeley well. It wasn't very far farther than most of our guests are coming from. Yeah also yeah the flights fine. What are we looking at forty five minutes or something fifty three? I believe. Okay you go into Burbank. I didn't did okay. I'm smart that way. It's not terrible driving and then find out of Burbank. Takes all of twelve minutes exactly now. Where are you from originally Minneapolis? You Are we love people for Minneapolis. We're going to stereotype right now We Know Peter. Krause we played brothers on TV and he delivered on the serotype immediately. I'm accused really are and then we went and did a live show last summer in. Minneapolis and again. It was the nicest there was just a shiny nice. It's it's real. What did your mom and Dad do in Minneapolis? Dad was a lawyer and my mom was a teacher. And then a stay at home mom. And what kind of law dead. Due in now I spent many many years sitting at the kitchen table staring out the window. Not Listening to that something riveting intellectual properties or something over the Supreme Court case that change bankruptcy law. My Daddy did and he's still. He's ninety three so he's still around. That's so impressive. We all went. Oh you win. We all went to watch him. Watched him why we've met. My brothers are also lawyers. Okay how many brothers have two older brothers. Okay now. Do you have little sister syndrome. Yes okay yes yeah I think of my what my my poor sister. I have a younger sister and I also have an older brother in. Yeah just growing up in a house with two boys in those being the people you're emulating it's quite a. It's very specific path. Yeah yes I always say this about. I think when boys have sisters older sister says yes I agree difference in. Who has that dynamic seems to predictably make the best boys really do think it does honest. I really do. It's healthy to be around female early in your life. Who can kick your ass? I think that's probably a permanent sister. Relate to just about like all guys like their sister right well in your new book you had really kind of. I can't even imagine you expected the level of access or the level of openness that. These young men were giving you right. Wasn't that come as a shock to you. It really did. I mean I really. I was really hesitant to do a book on boys. I've been writing about girls for a long time for like twenty five years. Right and part of my hesitance was that I basically have like whole transcripts of uh-huh. Yeah we're going to college and what did you major. I went to Oberlin. Ohio and we weren't allowed to major in anything practical point okay. What you've changed that a little bit but so I was an English Major. Okay that's a useful major loss. Well that was the whole thing. I was trying very very hard to avoid. I want you to pursue that. Yes yes and I mean I think my parents kind of expected that would be a lawyer's wife. Okay maybe go to law school and catch a lawyer husband but my brothers my lovely big brothers who were by that time both either lawyers are in law school sort of ran interference for me. I kind of pictured them like big linebackers thing not her. I think also that I think that I got through on this kind of weird like sexism worked in my favor and a funny way. Tell me because I think my dad didn't think I was going to really have to make a living. So expectations were low. Yeah and so. They weren't really eighty. They weren't really paying attention. But be you know kind of sneaking through and saying I'm going to be a writer wasn't as threatening. Sure somebody else. Would you know take care of me? Didn't work out that way. It didn't work out that way. So you're dead. Probably grew up in the thirties forties. Yeah right okay. So Yeah His paradigm. For what a woman's going. I don't say that with any. Ill will at all. Oh Yeah Yeah. And when I said I'M GONNA get on a plane out of New York Dad and I'm GonNa be a writer The basic response was. That's a pipe dream and you can't do that okay and I thought Oh yeah. Watch me tough I went. Well now. There's a couple of things there though too because Peter has brought me into what the Minnesota Culture is in. There is a modesty right. There's kind of a celebrated modesty arrogance his bad arrogance is the worse writes in some weird ways to pursue a dream as audacious as I'm going to move to New York and be a writer could be seen as arrogance a little bit right. Yeah I mean there's many different layers there's the gender layers that are happening but also this fear I mean I get that now having a kid and I'm sure you follow the creative path you feel kind of like wow. That was a lot of luck. Also ten years of rejections out. It's just weird to wish ten years of rejection child to be very strong willed and have a very strong vision to be incapable of doing anything else BS and and or really low self esteem and believe deserve this flagellation the modest modest this fantastic writer and she wrote one of the best books on writing and one of the things that she talks about. Is the radio station K. F. K. D. or or k? Fucked trying to write one speakers saying you are the greatest. You're the best. You're the other saying whoever told you you could pick up a pencil quiet both of those down when you went there. Were you aiming to because you've written for the New York Times for how long ever forever was that? One of your first started when I got to New York. I was a editorial assistance. That's I was below. That was staff which sounds like an infection esquire so I I got a job at esquire. That's a fun place to have started. Yeah yeah it was sort of a little bit? I wish I had thought to write things down so that I could have written. My own devil wears product. I bet so. Okay so your first book in My right to assume that you were probably written articles that have been published magazine editor. I worked at different magazines. And then I was. You know worried about writing full-time and what that would mean. And whether he could live and other things so then yet. My first book was called schoolgirls it was about young women self esteem and education and I followed two groups of thirteen year old girls through their thirteenth year to of look at that transition to adolescents. Did you approach it like a journalist or scientists journalists? There's like a couple books that I read when I was in my early. Twenty s Was called loose change by Davidson and the group and both of those kind of what they did was they like looked at a turning point in history through the lives of individual women And I just I love that idea. I love this idea that you could tell the story of an era through anybody really. I think our stories and that's been kind of the driving thing for me as a journalist. Is that how to our individual stories connect out. There's a neat Zane in screenwriting which is every single scene should encapsulated in a way the entire story. You're telling it should be a FRAC DOLE in that sense that every single sliver of it should be the the thing in its entirety. And that's kind of what you're saying is wells. Oh Yeah what did you find? That was like shocking. What was the tasty thing that you were bringing the light with that book? I really think that was sort of setting me going on thinking about things like that was nineteen ninety four nineteen eighty-four about like. I was looking at the way that the media was affecting girl's body image that was taken. I have a chapter in that book. That's called schoolgirls onslaughts. That was about sort of the perception of what it meant to be slutty. And the way the girls desire was suppressed. And what that whole piece that I think? Later years years years later was kind of the seeds of girls and sex Which is your. That's your most popular book. Yeah I think so. Yeah so new. York Times Bestseller is nice and sex in case you didn't fantastic. Oh wonderful on the list. Oh that's great but feels wonderful. Now guess so that I feel like I was starting the conversation with myself and maybe with readers looking at the way you know. I sat in on a lot of algebra classes for that book. How how do you get permission to be at a school as an adult? So for that book cash. It was really only time ago. I I feel like I approached principals and principals would go through sort of a process with the PTA and the school board and then the parents ultimately would have to send permission slips. And we'll tickets that I also always change people's names right. I didn't use the name of the district and district. I was in an offer some protection because their kids and that would be wrong. I mean one of the things about the way that I work with all well. Most of my books not all of them. But with that one in with girls and boys the sexist that. I'm not looking for anything in particular. Necessarily I just want to see what life was like in this kind of world that I'm looking at so I just go and hang around. I can't know what's GonNa Happen. Right so you know whether it was like in that book that there was a sexual harassment case that suddenly burst forward or like in boys and sex. One of my very favorite scenes in the book is when I'm talking to this boy. I'm skyping with this boy. Who's a senior in college by then and when I met him? He called self a feminist. Fuck boy Break like you already know. That means weirdly enough. We were on a family vacation and Family members who are teenagers. One of the girls told one of the boys that do you know that what they call you in school. They call you a fuck boy and he was so upset by this. He's sweetest boy ever and I thought what can that mean when it. When I was growing up I graduated ninety three. So if someone called me a fuck boy that would have been like a Sign of glory or something. I can only imagine but what does it mean. What it meant was that he accepted a lot of Israel's could count okay but that he had this kind of veneer of a kind of an and I think he is. He's has sort of egalitarian perspective. But he so. He like would teach consent workshops and he was very scrupulous about all that but that doesn't mean that he didn't take advantage of what was like a super skewed ratio of girls to boys on his campus and manipulate that and treat partners is disposable and there was like this kind of jerky underneath won't and he was starting to recognize that When when we met he was like wrestling without Manton. He felt about that and he was like it. Felt really good but maybe it doesn't feel so good year so I personally have this history where I was by all accounts..

"peggy she" Discussed on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

"Yes. Welcome thank you. Thank you for Traveling today to come see us from Berkeley well. It wasn't very far farther than most of our guests are coming from. Yeah also yeah the flights fine. What are we looking at forty five minutes or something fifty three? I believe. Okay you go into Burbank. I didn't did okay. I'm smart that way. It's not terrible driving and then find out of Burbank. Takes all of twelve minutes exactly now. Where are you from originally Minneapolis? You Are we love people for Minneapolis. We're going to stereotype right now We Know Peter. Krause we played brothers on TV and he delivered on the serotype immediately. I'm accused really are and then we went and we did a live show last summer in. Minneapolis and again. It was the nicest there was just a shiny nice. It's it's real. What did your mom and Dad do in Minneapolis? Dad was a lawyer and my mom was a teacher and then a stay at home. Mom and what kind of law did do in. Now I spent many many years sitting at the kitchen table staring out the window. Not Listening to that something riveting intellectual properties or something over the Supreme Court case that change bankruptcy law. My Daddy did and he's still. He's ninety three so he's still around. That's so impressive. We all went. Oh you win. We all went to watch him. Watched him why we've found that my brothers are also lawyers okay. How many brothers have two older brothers? Okay now do you have little sister syndrome? Yes okay yes yeah I think of my what my my poor sister. I have a younger sister and I also have an older brother in. Yeah just growing up in a house with two boys in those being the people you're emulating it's quite a. It's very specific path. Yeah I always say this about. I think when boys have sisters older sister says yes I agree difference in. Who has that dynamic seems to predictably make the best boys really do think it does honest. I really do. It's healthy to be around female early in your life. Who can kick your ass? I think that's probably a permanent sister. Relate to just about like all guys like their sister right well in your new book you had really kind of. I can't even imagine you expected the level of access or the level of openness that. These young men were giving you right. Wasn't that come as a shock to you. It really did. I mean I really. I was really hesitant to do a book on boys. I've been writing about girls for a long time for like twenty five years. Right and part of my hesitance was that I basically have like whole transcripts of uh-huh. Yeah we're going to college and what did you major. I went to Oberlin. Ohio and we weren't allowed to major in anything practical point okay. What you've changed that a little bit English major okay. That's a useful major loss. Well that was the whole thing. I was trying very very hard to avoid going. I want you to pursue that. Yes yes and I mean I think my parents kind of expected that would be a lawyer's wife. Okay maybe go to law school and catch a lawyer husband but my brothers my lovely big brothers who were by that time both either lawyers are in law school sort of ran interference for me. I kind of pictured them like big linebackers not her. I think also that I think that I got through on this kind of weird like sexism worked in my favor and a funny way. Tell me because I think my dad didn't think I was going to really have to make a living. So expectations were low. Yeah and so. They weren't really eighty. They weren't really paying attention. But be you know kind of sneaking through and saying I'm going to be a writer wasn't as threatening. Sure somebody else. Would you know take care of me? Didn't work out that way. It didn't work out that way. So you're dead. Probably grew up in the thirties forties. Yeah right okay. So Yeah His paradigm. For what a woman's going. I don't say that with any. Ill will at all. Oh Yeah Yeah. And when I said I'M GONNA get on a plane out of New York Dad and I'm GonNa be a writer The basic response was. That's a pipe dream and you can't do that okay and I thought Oh yeah. Watch me tough I went. Well now. There's a couple of things there though too because Peter has brought me into what the Minnesota Culture is in. There is a modesty right. There's kind of a celebrated modesty arrogance his bad arrogance is the worse writes in some weird ways to pursue a dream as audacious as I'm going to move to New York and be a writer could be seen as arrogance a little bit right. Yeah I mean there's many different layers there's the gender layers that are happening but also this fear I mean I get that now having a kid and I'm sure you follow the creative path you feel kind of like wow. That was a lot of luck. Also ten years of rejections out. It's just weird to wish ten years of rejection child to be very strong willed and have a very strong vision to be incapable of doing anything else BS and and or really low self esteem and believe deserve this flagellation the modest modest this fantastic writer and she wrote one of the best books on writing and one of the things that she talks about. Is the radio station K. F. K. D. or or k? Fucked trying to write one speakers saying you are the greatest. You're the best. You're the most other saying whoever told you you could pick up a Pencil. Quiet both of those down when you went there. Were you aiming to because you've written for the New York Times for how long ever forever was that? One of your first started when I got to New York. I was a editorial assistance. That's I was below. That was staff which sounds like an infection esquire so I I got a job at esquire. That's a fun place to have started. Yeah yeah it was sort of a little bit? I wish I had thought to write things down so that I could have written. My own devil wears product. I bet so. Okay so your first book in My right to assume that you were probably written articles that have been published magazine editor. I worked at different magazines. And then I was. You know worried about writing full-time and what that would mean. And whether he could live and other things so then yet. My first book was called schoolgirls that was about young women self esteem and education and I followed two groups of thirteen year old girls through their thirteenth year to of look at that transition to adolescents. Did you approach it like a journalist or scientists journalists? I mean there's like a couple books that I read when I was in my early. Twenty s One was called loose change by Sarah Davidson and the group and both of those kind of what they did was they like looked at a turning point in history through the lives of individual women And I just I love that idea. I love this idea that you could tell the story of an era through anybody really. I think our stories and that's been kind of the driving thing for me as a journalist. Is that how to our individual stories connect out. There's a neat Zane in screenwriting which is every single scene should encapsulated in a way the entire story. You're telling it should be a FRAC DOLE in that sense that every single sliver of it should be the the thing in its entirety. And that's kind of what you're saying is wells. Oh Yeah what did you find? That was like shocking. What was the tasty thing that you were bringing the light with that book? I really think that was sort of setting me going on thinking about things like that was nineteen ninety four nineteen eighty-four about like. I was looking at the way that the media was affecting girl's body image that was taken. I have a chapter in that book. That's called schoolgirls onslaughts. That was about sort of the perception of what it meant to be slutty. And the way the girls desire was suppressed. And what that whole piece that I think? Later years years years later was kind of the seeds of girls and sex Which is your. That's your most popular book. Yeah I think so. Yeah so new. York Times Bestseller is nice and sex in case you didn't know that's fantastic. Oh Wonderful Number. Seven on the list. Oh that's great but feels wonderful. Now yes so that I feel like I was starting the conversation with myself and maybe with readers looking at the way you know. I sat in on a lot of algebra classes for that book. I did how. How do you get permission to be at a school as an adult? So for that book cash. It was really only time ago. I I feel like I approached principals and principals would go through sort of a process with the PTA and the school board and then the parents ultimately would have to send permission slips. And we'll tickets that I also always change people's names right. I didn't use the name of the district and district. I was in an offer some protection because their kids and that would be wrong. I mean one of the things about the way that I work with all well. Most of my books not all of them. But with that one in with girls and boys the sexist that. I'm not looking for anything in particular. Necessarily I just want to see what life is like in this kind of world that I'm looking at so I just go and hang around what's going to happen right so you know whether it was like in that book that there was a sexual harassment case that suddenly burst forward or like in boys and sex. One of my very favorite scenes in the book is when I'm talking to this boy. I'm skyping with this boy. Who's a senior in college by then and when I met him? He called self a feminist. Fuck boy Break like you already know. That means weirdly enough. We were on a family vacation and Family members who are teenagers. One of the girls told one of the boys that do you know that what they call you in school. They call you a fuck boy and he was so upset by this. He's sweetest boy ever and I thought what can that mean it. When I was growing up I graduated ninety three. So if someone called me a fuck boy that would have been like a Sign of glory or something. I can only imagine but what does it mean. What it meant was that he slept with a lot of Israel's than he could count okay but that he had this kind of veneer of a kind of an and I think he is. He's has sort of egalitarian perspective. But he so. He like would teach consent workshops and he was very scrupulous about all that but that doesn't mean that he didn't take advantage of what was like a super skewed ratio of girls to boys on his campus and manipulate that and treat partners is disposable and there was like this kind of jerky underneath won't and he was starting to recognize that When when we met he was like wrestling with what Manton felt about that and he was like it..

"Japanese and Jeff lease is generally smaller than Canadians Americans right so the more taller and Mascara man's immoral like Manley. I think it'd be last year is more like Manley. I think he's saying that there's a real bias when it comes to what's considered manly and you explore this in the book as well. Yeah there sure is. I love that you have these clips there so fantastic. I talk a lot about boys of color and particularly about African American boys and Asian American boys Who are kind of flip sides of the same coin in in terms of how we think about masculinity so African American boys are kind of hyper? Sexualize D- But then the other side of that is that they are The that can flip over and they are quickly. Seen more predatory and Asian American guys are seen as less masculine and a sexual and one of the guys who is Asian American that I was talking to was telling me about his experience on Swipe APPs and Swipe APPs are kind of rife with sexual racism and he matched with a girl who they talked for a little while and she said well you know we could be friends but no offence. I don't date Asian guys and he was like. How is that. No OFFENCE OF COURSE. That's a fence courses. Yeah and now on the other side of it you tell the story of. What's an exhibitor WHO Is Young Black Guy who who's trying to figure out again back to the hookup. Culture piece how he figures into that partying drinking Scenario as a young black man right and that you know with the the African American guys that I spoke with were in largely white schools So they were operating in that realm and they felt a pretty intense sense of anxiety all the time around. That and so one of Xavier's friends Emma said to me you know I don't like to go party I'm not I don't WanNa be in a room with a bunch of drunk white kids because anything could go wrong and if I'm the only black guy at the party you know I'm the only black at the party. So there is this sense that he was going to be Targeted and potentially as they would say you know. Lose my whole life for you know not only walking talking. Sh- pulling out your ID when black but also potentially For being in a room and being the only black guy and if anything you know he there's like if something gets broken if a girl complaints anything it's going to go straight to me. What about the issue of Sexual Orientation What's it like? What did you learn about what it's like to be A young gay man Well there were a couple of things that we're really interesting about that. The I was how it related to straight people and one of the things that came out really clearly was that gay boys Presented a kind of model of how to navigate consent and negotiate several relationships in part because they had to. You know what was going to happen in counter was not assumed or obvious. One Gay boy said to me you know. I don't really get the straight guys who were so resistant to talking about consent. Because you know if you're talking about it that means you're GONNA be having sex and that's great. So what's the problem? Dan Savage. He's a Red Syndicated Columnists Sucks Has said that gay men tend to use what he calls the four magic words which are what are you into and I loved that because it's exactly the sort of open ended question that we ought to be encouraging people to engage in when they have a sexual encounter. What are you into the conversation and puts everything out on the table as opposed to the way that we tend to think of it? Which is that. It's a yes or no response to A A set of predetermined ideas and usually that one person is suggesting. Can we talk briefly about porn and porn has done to how Boys and young men see not just issues of consent but sex and sexuality. Yeah I mean you have to know that if you have a teenage boy. He's certainly important right And that it has become in absence of parental conversation and conversation in school one of the main sex educators and you know curiosity about sex is natural and masturbation is important. But what's changed? Is that with the rise of the Internet and smartphones and particularly sites like porn hub. That dropped the paywall. Young people can see anything that you can imagine and a whole lot of things. Nobody wants to imagine Right at their fingertips and the picture of sex that they're getting you know there's all kinds of porn. There's there's queer porn there's feminist porn. There's ethical part but that is not really what they're looking at. They're looking at what you can get in for Free. That's the most accessible And that typically shows sex as something men do to women Female pleasure as a performance for male satisfaction distorted bodies. A lot of acts. That you know wouldn't really feel good to most people And when we're not talking to our kids when we're not telling them what is real about that what's not real about that. What's missing from that Inevitably they're taking that into the bedroom. You you end the book by talking about talking to kids with and there are a series of lessons For parents we started talking about parents being freaked out by. Maybe what they heard Around hookup culture. What's the lesson to parents in terms of how to talk to boys and young men about sex so look? I know you would rather poke yourself in the eye with a fork. Then talk directly to your son about socks right. Maybe you can't even talk to your partner. You know I it is. It is not something that we a culture have learned how to do. But we don't have the luxury anymore of silence. We we have to do it because if we don't the media will educate our kids for us and you have to do it. I mean as you say you wouldn't talk about table manners In one conversation. Expect your son to be polite that this needs to be a a series of conversations. Yes yes I mean you would not sit down and say okay you know you need to have good manners when you leave the house Make sure to put your Napkin and say please pass the food and excuse yourself before intellectual give a whole list and then walk away and think okay. I've told my child I've done my job. No you would not do that. So in the last chapter of the book I devote to talking about not giving you a script but the kinds of conversations that you need to have with your boy and most of them would work with girls too About sex but not just sex. You know a consent but not just consent Sexual pleasure about media about porn about gender making gender dynamics visible About a whole series about masculinity about a whole series of ideas That they're going to end messages that they're going to confront that we need to Disrupt and help them critique and understand better like I was thinking about how I have a daughter and when she was little I was constantly bringing up Distortion body distortion in animated films. So I would say you know. We bought some Disney filming. I'd say hey look. Her eyes are bigger than her wrist are. Your is bigger than your wrist. Is your head bigger than your waist. you know and just having these sort of constant little conversations and I thought I wonder if I would have done that if I had a son. I don't know and he is growing up in these same. You know culture where that is saturated. I mean that's that's for little kids but as they get older You know it's saturated with sexual sexualize imagery that this is mainstream media video games. Tv movies That the same sexual imagery that that girl see the same ideas of female sexual availability and sexual submission the same ideals of ideas of male sexual entitlement. And we've gotten so much better about talking about that with our daughters Over the years because you know we we see the harm that can do to them but we have been really silent with our sons and I think that's one place that is not the threatening for parents to change Peggy. Thank you. It's a real pleasure to talk to you. It's been great. Thanks so much for by.

"Our guest today is a journalist who has spent over twenty five five years chronicling the lives of girls exposing the contradictions young women face in their intimate encounters everywhere. She she went however she was urged to turn her attention to boys which she resisted until two and the declarations that masculinity was broken and toxic. And so she stepped into the opportunity to engage young men in authentic and perhaps long overdue conversations stations about gender an intimacy. She'd already discovered that American parents talk little to their daughters about sex but she soon learned that they they talk even less to their son's her biggest fear going into this project was the guys would WanNa talk to her especially because in her words. She looks like she could be their mom. Welcome Peggy Ornstein author of boys and sex young men on hookups love porn consent consent and navigating the new masculinity. Hi thanks for having me. Hi Peggy so even though you do look like. They're like you could be their mom. You soon discovered that boys were actually very eager to talk with you about themselves and their experiences not only about sex but about about porn casual hookups. And those even bigger questions that we're all thinking about about race sexuality and gender and their our own developing perceptions of masculinity. I'm really curious. who were you talking with? So I was talking to boys who were between the ages of sixteen eighteen and twenty two and because written girls and sex and I had focused on a particular demographic which was kids who were either college bound or in college. I did the I kind of. Just just transpose. That and that was the same that I was working with for boys and sex but beyond that That was pretty broad..

"Background Girls Ashanti Year. The founder of the Brown rose guy to politics. And this is the first three episodes highlighting amazing being digits women in honor native American heritage month. This episode we'll hear from Minnesota. Lieutenant Governor pay again and to share Arnold with the Center for native the American Youth. Lieutenant Governor Flanagan is currently the only native woman serving and statewide elected office. She got her at the local level. And the Minnesota State House versus the champion women and people color as lieutenant governor. She has continued her. Focus on ensuring that Minnesota's underserved populations are not left behind. Thank you so much for joining us today. How are you? I'm doing really well. Thanks so much for having me wonderful so I do WanNa dive right in user your career in the State House and then ran for statewide office. I was one of those mini people. Combat Watch your race in awe in just amazed at how fabulous you are but when we look at the numbers they are not. You'll have women serving statewide office across the US in your carly only native woman seraing out those ninety. What are some of the barriers that using we need to break to seem more native women in elected the office? Will I think one of the things that I want to emphasize is that native women have been leading since time immemorial Amen Native Women Native Americans as a whole are far too underrepresented at local state and federal governments by think As we see the success of Congress Race David's Congressmens homeland as well as Warren Native Women. were running for office is an historic numbers in this past election. I think that's not runoff. It will. It's a trend into the future. I think mainstream society is just catching up to what we've always known that our women our leaders and we absolutely want to be at the table to make decisions that affect our communities and we know that when we have women represent at the table things are different and we see that under your administration Minnesota one the things that I just saw is that the state held a today government to garment tribal relations training with all of your state agencies. And the governor's office in you commented. Our administration has committed to strengthening relationships with all eleven tribal nations in our urban Indian communities in Minnesota. And I think this is a really good example on how states him for better relationships with tribal nations. So what are some of the key lessons that came out of training training that you think other states can be allies ing while I think one of the things that was really important to to the governor and me was to make sure that we we are trying to be a model for the rest of the country in how we essentially build relationships that our governments governments Honored Treaty Rights and tribal sovereignty. And frankly isn't should be seen as a new thing. We are simply doing what has been required of us for for the last one hundred and fifty plus years. Minnesota was a state. So you know my hope. Is that as we are figuring this out. We are working across Ross agencies and figure out how to how to do this well I think education about we are on our tribal governments function as sovereign nations in how they self govern how they possess self-determination for a federal government employees. All of these things are incredibly important for non non native people to understand that we are contemporary people we still exists and I think a big takeaway to for lack of non native people who attended the training was acknowledging the generations of of trauma. Frankly that that have occurred with the people in that you can see some of the effects still to this day but also talk about things like treaties. Treaties aren't just for native people and they are also for non native people are in Minnesota so Minnesota exists exists because of a treaty. And I think it is. It is critically important that we continue to educate folks across government amount of course but more broadly through our K twelve system as well about the people who have always been here are still here and we'll always be here into the future when I think about what you did with the tribal relations training you've been just trendsetters since she stepped foot in local government and during your time in the State House you help create the people of Color in indigenous caucus which focused on improving education health economic opportunities. He's a people cholera in indigenous communities in Minnesota and we all know as around all editions people people color that the spaces are really important. A lot of times people will see them as divisive so from your point of view. Why is important why it's important for us us to create these spaces especially when we have that at the table in the opportunity? Will I think you know. Government works well when it reflects the population at extract present. And so. If we don't house on folks at the table I think that democracy is is unable to flourish so I think part of creating a people caller indigenous caucus was to ensure that we were making our voices heard already but in terms of the people that we represent because for too often decisions have been made about people call our indigenous folks without our input at the table. All we do thanks to communities not without If we're doing this this correctly we're able to bring policy solutions from people who are most directly the affected Those are things that are going to be more long lasting have to be buying in. I think The solutions that worked so part of creating a posse caucus was making sure it could speak on her own behalf but just to Honest to also have a safe place or ourselves for each other to be able to talk about Some of the the issues of racism in systems and really. You know I think about this. Every day I As indigenous woman who serving state government. I am working in a system that was not created by us or for us and in many instances was is created to eliminate us and so I think having a caucus that created community allowed us a place to Frickley amplify one another and wanted to release speak with authority on behalf of our communities was powerful and now the posse caucus in the House and Senate has grown since the last election and It's it's exciting to see. I think it allows more folks from communities of color to say there is a place in space for me there. I'm going to step up and run for office. I really love what you said about us being in the system because a question I get from people all the time is what challenges you have on a daily basis says doing work in politics and I remind them I wake up every day and I play in a system. That never prepared never thought that I would be a participant. We're constantly constantly navigating things every single day with wasting to my next question is assault rape picture of you with Congresswoman Debt Hall in snakeheads at Beautiful Picture. We know all three of you. Very Earth Saint Twenty eighteen. How having the support of other native women impacted packed your time in office? Will I have to say you know when cherise Debra here in Minneapolis. We went we got to go to on a snobby academy which is is a K eight school for Indigenous Kids Minneapolis. It was powerful odd to be with these native kids but also with my two sisters talking about our our own experiences than just the path of that lasted to be in that room in that space together we have a a little tax group. Rupin cheer each other on and I was at the state of the Union was a guest of Senator Tina Smith. And when cherise and DAB came in I heard suddenly Peggy Peggy from down from the floor and here are my two native sisters who are waving to me from the floor of Congress.
