Getting into security architecture: Careers, skills and ransomware
"I Wanted to talk to you today about because you know cyber work. The big push here is helping people to get started in cybersecurity and who don't necessarily know where to start or don't know what the next steps are in their career. So for listeners who might think you're fresh out of college I WANNA point out that you've been working insecurity for some time between undergraduate studies in recent master's degree. So I guess what I wanted to know, what are you? What were you specifically trying to achieve getting your? Computer Science from Michigan State you know before returning back to the business. sector. So there's a strong strong analytical competent. That is an integral part of any doctoral degree I began my PhD with the objective of owning my critical thinking skills and exploring the truth death of certain areas insecurity because as we know. So we will looked at the ten domains, of CIS SPN that's it. It's everywhere from physical security to cryptography and everything in between your network and I was doing that for for a long time and. It came to a point where I wanted to really truly understand something in depth to the point where you know I could get a PhD in in that area. So so that that that was definitely a motivation motivating factor for me going in. Do you have a sense of how you know the the addition of a PhD like this has has changed job prospects I mean obviously you're using Motorola but like like what what sort of doors does does a graduate level degree like this open for Cybersecurity I personal? Right, so that's a great. in terms of career prospects, it definitely opens up more research opportunities both in academia and industry. Right. Some research opportunities and industry will explicitly ask for a PhD So so it definitely opens those doors talking about industry in particular There are. There are few opposite like I said, there is a few doors that opened up right away. I could have definitely been. I could have definitely been a security architect without getting a PhD but the benefit is more intangible in that. There's elements of my PhD that prepared me for my role today. And allowed a smooth transition. into security architecture all as. You know. Because I play the role of. A playboy tactical and strategist role during my During my work as a security architect and especially the strategic part of the PSG definitely helps them. Okay. So you you mentioned that this is a pre specifically useful thing if you're going to go into a research capacity, is this something that you're looking to pursue as well? Are you looking to because I? Believe you're your emphasis was on ransomware are you are you doing sort of ransomware SORTA research level study of things ransomware right now? Yeah definitely that's a competent of my work and even at Motorola solutions on preparing I'm pursuing them up and so for example, if you know one thing that comes to mind that a PhD would directly help you in in an industry is like if you contributing to. If. You're if you're making if you're. Generating Patent applications that process is very similar to writing for Scientific Journal. So that's something that comes to mind right away that helps me aware PhD helps me in In the industry. Okay. So when we spoke earlier and I just mentioned it just now you said that that ransomware is probably the main focus of your study I believe. So could you tell me a little bit about what you learned about ransomware in this academic context and you know how deeply gone into this topic and what was your specialized area within ransomware? There's a certain aspect of it that really sort of attracted you. So speaking in the. Context is a lot of new things I learned One of them is actually funny. YOU SPEAK OF ACADEMY CONTEXT IN IN ONE thousand nine hundred thousand academy paper. Out in Tripoli Conference where which talked about where where the authors young young talked about crypto viruses that will deploy cryptographic libraries on on hose to perform unauthorized encryption and demand a ransom. In order to provide you with the decryption key. So they predicted the whole thing, one, thousand six, and this wasn't a ransomware in really start to grow around untold to five thousand six as when it started to. Grow. But so so that's always interesting is when when a academy predict some of these things I hadn't time. Reading about it in the academy context, I, notice that there's papers that have done studies on on large samples of ransomware discovered, for example, that ninety two percent of them are not affected right? Because cryptography is hard and and cybercriminals make mistakes all the time and a lot of the times they're scare where where they lock your screen expect you to pay the. Money when they haven't really done any encryption in the background So if you take away all of that fluff, then the h percent are the truly troubling ones and so there's a lot of noise in the cybercrime underground and you know we we get this. We get into this mode of thinking that Cybercriminals have descended from the heavens in terms of their. Skills but but that's not true. You know they make a lot of mistakes
Hugh Hefner's son Cooper, 'Harry Potter' actress Scarlett Byrne welcome baby girl
"You have nurse son Cooper and Harry Potter star Scarlett Burn. Welcome to daughter Betsy. Rose. Isn't this interesting? Oh, yeah. You don't hear that much about this, son, But this is one of Hugh have nurse Children, and it's a darling little baby. I mean, how wonderful Cooper is 28. His wife is 29. Then they revealed their baby news in March, And now they've got a new little one kids. Did you have your hats? And I was wondering, I'm trying to figure that out.

Kanye West posts bizarre Twitter rant: ‘Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up’
"So Connie went on twitter tirade last night. Saying things like Chris. Stay away from his kids. He slammed Kim's playboy spread and he even said the movie. Get out is about him. Yeltsin claims that Kim was going to fly out to Wyoming with the doctor to get him locked up, so it sounds like Kim is trying to get him help, but these tweets which our now deleted did get pretty personal. How do you guys feel if you can? I mean how are you supposed to feel this entire thing is so devastating. I feel like this has been something that's been going on with Connie for a while now. Obviously, he's been pretty open about his mental illness, and the struggles that he's had with it in the past. It is very clear that he's obviously going through something. Obviously, we don't know if that means he's you know. Stop taking certain medications or whatever has gone on. On, but clearly he's in a little bit more of a manic state. I'm not a doctor so I. Don't know if that's the right terminology, but clearly clearly going there's something and as his wife and partner for so many years mother of his children. I mean I'm sure it's devastating for her I. Mean I know firsthand what it's like to deal with somebody who has mental illness and let me tell you something it is horrific. Horrific you are not dealing with a person that is a the right sound mind, so it's almost impossible to help them, and they feel like everybody is sort of attacking them in what he was tweeting about being locked up. It's like she's not trying to lock you up. She's trying to help you and get you WANNA. Pass right now to get you to your most Sane Self, so I'm sure it's dead the skating for her. What do you think? I mean if you haven't dealt with someone who has gone through mental illness, especially member. You really do not know the distance that you are willing to go for that person you know people ask questions like when is enough enough? But when this is your family member, you have go the distance and for people are forever, and when people are going through manic episodes. Is sometimes they will say things that will cut deep. They will say things that will hurt their actions Are you know pretty irrational at times when you have family members? Sometimes you just have to take a step outside of the situation and assess what's going, and sometimes you're able to realize okay. They were in the right state of mind. They were saying things that maybe they do not mean and and you're. You're willing to just ride it out with them for him. This is the father of her children. This is her husband who we know adores her, so I feel like she is going to do whatever it takes to help him and to get him better, but you guys. There is no simple solution. There is not sanction. This is a lifelong journey, so I think right now. The whole family is going through it. But also with Kim, you know she has to assess how she is feeling. Because as you are not well, then you're trying to fill someone else's cost. That is half. Empty your nothing for yourself so it also it just falls on. You know you need to assess how you are. You need to help this person, but it's going to be a journey. Be. A mother continued to be a mother to the four children. She also has to be both mom and dad right now, and I think that a lot of I mean I've gone through this personally, but you know like people with mental illness have a hard time taking medication because they do complain that it causes them to feel jake or less, creative or sort of a little bit foggy, and I think that obviously we know I've been a huge conde. Conde stand from day one. He's obviously a musical genius, and he's somebody that constantly wants to be in the zone wants to be creating wants to be putting out certain things and when he's taking stuff that makes him feel like he's not living up to that. Potential I can understand him saying well. I don't want to do that to myself anymore. But unfortunately what we saw last night with the tweeting is the effects of not taking care of himself right? Right one hundred percent I think if you look at the history of the Kardashian women and their relationships. If you look at chloe and Lamar if you look at Scott in Courtney. Even when those relationships were romantically done, they never gave up on those people we saw how chloe came to Lamar's rescue, and how Chris was behind her, and how the sisters were behind her to help Lamar get out of the spot. He's at so being someone like Kim. WHO's? WHO's a part of a family like that? WHO believes that wind? She has kids or this man. She is not going to give up on him even if she's out of this situation for herself, she is going to stay in this for kids and I. Think the most devastating part for Cam, which is also the most devastating part for me. Is that people on the Internet are egging this on and laugh about this man going through this manic episode? Nine might be saying things that cut deep and are very personal, but I think she can get over that. I think what's going to her. Is that people are sitting here in laughing at this man going through this, and that is going to be the problem,

"A lot of playing board games these days and that's pretty fitting human making board games for a long time like a long longtime seven thousand years or more for a bit of historical context. We stopped hunter-gathering and settled down to be farmers about ten thousand years ago rather than try to cram seven thousand years in six occupied continents worth of history into a half hour podcast. I'll hit some of the high points. Especially the less well-known once the earliest gaming pieces ever found are forty nine. Small carved painted stones found a five thousand year old burial mound in southeast Turkey. Similar pieces have been found in Syria and Iraq and seemed to point devoid games originating in the Fertile Crescent. You remember the Fertile Crescent from the first week of world history class. It's the same region discovered alcohol invented papyrus and made calendars all of which you need. If you're hosting game night other early dice games were created by painting a single side of a flat. Stick these sticks would be tossed at once and that would be your role Mesopotamia. Dice were made from a variety of materials including carved knuckle bones would painted stones and turtle shells. No wonder folks used to say roll them bones dice from the Roman era. Looks like the six sided die. We use today though. Some of them had their corners. Cut off to be able to reach a higher number not unlike dungeons and dragons dice. Imagine excavating a distant Roman out host and finding a D twenty serious cricket board games became popular among the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. And that shouldn't surprise. That board games were a bigger part of life for upper class people since they have both money for entertainment and time to play. Even before the first dynasty Egypt loved a game called Senate. It's even seen on. The walls of tombs and copies of the game are buried with noble people. Ancient Egyptians were strong believers in the concept of fate. And that your luck in the game of Senate meant that you were under the protection of the major gods of the Pantheon raw toe to toe Cyrus. The significance of the game is clear. The game play not as clear. Historians have made educated guesses as to the rules more on that later and Board Game. Companies have used those guesses as a jumping off place to make modern versions. Four Games also became tied into religious beliefs. One such game was Mahan played around three thousand. B C e Mahan was a protective God depicted as a snake with coils around the Sun God raw during his journey through the night the game and the God became intertwined. Tim Kendall and ancient Egyptian historian believes that it's not possible to know for sure with the information we have available whether the game was inspired by an existing deity or the Deity was inspired by the game. Many people think backgammon is the longest plate of all the board games with evidence that it existed around two thousand B C but there is an extant game. That is a little bit older. Relatively speaking the royal game of for the game gets its name from being found in the royal tombs of in Iraq. There was also a set found in Pharaoh. Tutankhamun tune the game. Play is simple but very familiar. You're trying to get all of your pieces around the board first thumping off your opponent's pieces along the way again. Proving there's nothing new under the Sun. The royal game of herb was played with four sided or tetrahedral dice. A D Four for the tabletop games out there. Even though the game's over four thousand years old amazingly we found a copy of the rules Irving Finkel the British museum deciphered cuneiform tablet and discovered. It was the rules for the Royal Game of Earth. He then saw a photograph of a nearly identical board game being played in modern India. That makes the Royal Game of Earth. The longest played game in history and there is a great video of Irving Finkel. Who has ever so pleasantly mad teaching youtuber or Tom Scott how to play Lincoln the show notes and a little clip right here. Because I just couldn't help myself. All sorts of evidence has come to live so that we know how this game was played and we can play it now with a great deal of excitement. Sometimes it brings out violence. Come Times it brings out savagery. I have to say that this so we've decided to bring in a member of the public. I can't remember the name on Tom. Scott I make videos about science technology in the world. Who's never paid this game before? I have never played this game before. I'm Gandhi swift overview of the walls. Hope he masses and I'm getting to play of course play gently at first because I don't say hi to hang I'm to wipe the floor with it wouldn't do it for me even discovered these rules and I'll throw in his mind. Game listing whitlow. Marta is similar to that question of modern. There were some minor differences s today. Each player has fifteen checkers and uses six sided dice to be the first to bear off. All of one's checkers. I confess that I am reading that. From a website verbatim. I know less about that. Yemen do cricket. Backgammon had a renewed surge of popularity in the nineteen sixties which is held longtime for a comeback. Thanks in part to the charisma of Prince Alexis. Obolensky the father of modern backgammon cigarette liquor and car. Companies began to sponsor tournaments and Hugh Hefner held backgammon parties at the Playboy Mansion. At the same time that the Romans were playing Latin backgammon. The Chinese were play. We she or you may have heard of it. Go Que- she may even predate the game of twelve markings and the royal game of Earth. According to legend which has a pesky habit of morphing into history quay g was created by the ancient Chinese. Emperor Yell to teach his son on Ju discipline. Concentration and balance the popularity of wage e grew throughout Eastern Asia especially in Japan. Which is where the name go comes from another ancient game which is still out there and a favourite of nearly every household in my family is the African game of Mangala in our modern parlance. Munkala refers to a specific game. But the name actually belongs to an entire genre of games a genre eight hundred traditional games strong. This family of Board Games is played around. The world is referred to as Sewing Games S. O. W. I N. G. Devotes the way that you pick up and drop the stones playing pieces like you were sowing seeds in the ground. The word Mukalla comes from the Arabic Nicola to move most one college games share a common structure where each player has gained pieces in divots on the board and moves them to capture their opponent's pieces leading them to also be called count and capture games. The boards can be wooden clay even just little holes in the dirt playing pieces of everything from seeds. Stones shells anything near at hand that fits in the holes. The earliest evidence of the game are fragments of pottery. Board found in Eritrea dated to the sixth century CE. Though if the games were played with seeds on wooden boards or pebbles in divots in the dirt the game could be even older. The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence after all that particular logical fallacy is called argument from ignorance at ignorant him. And it's not a good look now. We go to the land of ice and snow of the Midnight Sun. Where the hot springs flow Scandinavians played chess. Like game called. Nevin tough at least as early as four hundred see. I'm sure my clever listeners haven't forgotten that. Viking refers to the raids undertaken by a small portion of the population themselves called Viking US meaning kings table noth- Atoll was a war strategy game. The kings objective was to escape to the edge of the board while the opponents laurel objective was to capture him. The attacking force had the natural advantage at the start of each game. Perhaps mimicking a cultural mindset of a small group being victorious against a larger force like say a few boats full of Viking attacks against the army of an English King Scandinavians spread the game to Ireland Britain and Wales through. Let's call it. Unexpected cultural exchange archaeologists have also discovered that it was popular as far to the east as Ukraine.
Mel Magazine co-founder Josh Schollmeyer on how the site's 'never been there to push razors'
"The idea overall behind behind mel. Whether you're a couple things one I always joke that it. It's me we're really working through some shit which is kind of trutv just trying to find my place in a very as you point out fraught world. I think when it started the idea was much more quaint Which was had come from playboy where we did? We did a lot of things on. You know bespoke axes that you could hang in your living room and a lot of consumer the endless conversation. Some of my fellow colleagues would have about Artisanal Gin and it just seemed Frankly it kind of bored me and it felt pretty out of touch and I think you know I come from a very blue collar working class background and I think there was a time with my grandfather and even my dad and uncles. Who looked at that stuff is very aspirational? And I think as time went on aspirations really changed and became more experiential than they did around certain goods also felt that that approach shamed people. You know if you didn't have the right kind of socks that matched your jacket with the right kind of barber. Somehow you were less of a you know well-heeled sophisticated urbanites and so I wanted to do something that I felt would speak much more. Fundamentally to men's lives especially not just with what was going on with social change but the fact that like the whole notion of quote. Unquote adulting and you know. When do we start to grow up and mature and you know as men in particular are faced with a lot of more fundamental things in life things? You never thought you'd worry about around your job your especially given the economic times we've been in the last decade or so. I think mental health is a super important thing I didn't see places like men's health and others really taking mental health as seriously as physical health especially around like sixty seconds to ads. I was much more interested in trying to holistically. Triangulate my need for like my ambition for career my ambition to be a good partner and father and my ambition to be something other than the guy who died at his desk. Or you know a husband or father and somebody who had his own identity and I think that that's a very tough thing to square kind of in any year. I think it's particularly tough now and I just wanted to sort of investigate the thinking the different people that I thought were doing that. An intriguing ways that maybe you could take something from okay so I mean I think everything changed with me too right. Yeah Yeah I WANNA I WANNA get to that but so that was the original idea. And I think what? You're talking about with with esquire and Chiku and a lot of the sort of traditional men's publications I mean a lot of that's business model driven right right. I mean like it's an archetype based on who they could advertise against right so I actually believe that guy never really existed. It was just that they could get style advertises. They could get auto advertisers. They could get liquor advertisers they could get studios so like. I never believed that guy existed. I believe that that guy existed to sell against right so different business model at Mel. I mean so you hooked up with with Dollar Shave Club with Michael Dubin Explain explain the model there because they think I know originally I was like. Oh Wow weird this is gonNA BE. I remember you know our digital alum John.

What Else Did Shel Silverstein Write?
"Decades ago in the evenings around closing time a man with a very bald head and a very dark beard used to come sloping into the mysterious bookshop in New York City. His shoulders hunched is the warding off a perpetual cold wind. The proprietor auto pens ler had come to expect these visits indeed. He looked forward to them. He would close up the shop and guide the man back to his. Inner Sanctum. A book lined study with floor-to-ceiling shelves there the bearded man would deliver a Sheaf of papers containing a new freshly penned mystery story to be added to the theology. That Pencil publishing the writer refused to take any money for his efforts. Even though pens lawyer was paying well. He craved compensation. His eyes gleamed as pennsly- slid his payment across the desk between them. It was a stack of used books containing dozens of stories written in the mystery genre later that night he would devour them one by one but first pens lawyer and the bearded man would talk and talk. They talked about books about life. Auto pens layer was just recovering from a devastating break-up and so they spoke about battling in a recent phone interview for this article. Pennsly- remembered that at a certain juncture. His guests said something so piercingly insightful and eloquent about the break up that it took his breath away Henseler said I wish I could remember what he said but I failed to write it down what I do remember. Is that when I expressed my amazement at his facility with words he just shrugged and said I guess that's why they call me a poet. He could've added among many other things because our bald and bearded man was Shel Silverstein a true renaissance man. Of course many of us know him as the author and illustrator of the giving tree a light in the attic and where the sidewalk ends among many of the other wildly successful books that he wrote Andrew for children. That's only the tip of the proverbial Iceberg Silverstein also drew cartoons and wrote plays for adults and penned numerous songs especially country songs. In fact he won. Two grammys for song. Writing one of them for the Johnny Cash. Hit A boy named Sue Sheldon Allen. Shel Silverstein was born into a Jewish family in Chicago in nineteen thirty his father and a bakery which only began to thrive in the wake of the Great Depression. After high school. Shell spent some time studying at the Art Institute of Chicago and later Roosevelt University but was drafted into the US army serving in Korea and Japan. Silverstein began working for the military periodical. Stars and Stripes and it was there that he began regularly publishing his idiosyncratic cartoons after his military service Silverstein got a job as a cartoonist. For the fledgling magazine. Playboy for his playboy gig. He traveled the world sending cartoon dispatches from Bahrein wide in nineteen sixty three Silverstein. Met Book Editor Ursula Nordstrom. Who prodded him into writing books for Children? And that same year he wrote the giving tree a book about the nature of Altruism and selfishness there would become his most famous and popular work his sense of the absurd and the whimsical cartoon line drawings that illustrated this and all of his books would become his hallmarks in deceptively simple language. His exploration of the innocence and imagination of childhood made him one of the most celebrated and widely read authors for generations of children and adults like Auto Penn's lair recall Silverstein telling him that he spent a year living at the playboy mansion as a guest of Hugh Hefner. It was there that he met Susan Hastings with whom he had daughter named Shoshana in nineteen seventy tragically. Susan died in nineteen seventy five and two. Shana passed away. Unexpectedly after cerebral aneurysm. In one thousand nine hundred two by many accounts her death utterly devastated Silverstein in Nineteen eighty-four. He had a son named Matthew with Sarah Spencer. According to Pens Ler Silverstein was a deeply eccentric. Man Pennzoil told us for instance. It wasn't unusual for him to be having dinner in a restaurant with a group of friends and then suddenly announced that he was done. Get up take a taxi to the airport and flight of Chicago or Los Angeles or Florida or wherever he felt like going on the spur of the moment shel. Silverstein died of a heart attack in nineteen ninety nine at the age of just sixty eight but in story song and image. He left behind a remarkably prolific artistic record.

In It for the Long Haul
"Your hustle and all the other radio topiary shows are producing episodes on a trucking related theme. The long haul and this is ours. You know what night over the road kind of reminds me of us. Everyone knew about prison but they didn't know what life was really like. Oh that's true. And we all see those trucks on the highway. But God knows what daily life entails. Wait a minute get it. I'm sorry but it's a Little Cup your coochie and then it has a little spout in the up through it but if you really bad the pressure would just go all over the place. And so I actually don't even use it. It's for when you have a really low stream you WanNa just take your time is slowly but can you. Can you use it while you're driving or you have to pull over? You'd have to pull over. Yeah there there you just get. Pow's yeah but no. I I never have a problem all right enough of that. Eric told us she's been driving for about three years and she drives. What's called a day cab? So there's no sleeping compartment and she doesn't do long hauls like Paul and that's not because she's on parole in can't cross state lines no. She's not on parole at all. The reason she doesn't do long-haul is because she has cats and bring a lot a lot of it as she doesn't want to leave him alone for too long right. Erika Toda set aside from the fact that it takes her away from her cats. She loves almost everything else about the job. There's the freedom. The fact that driving a truck takes all of her energy and focus. She likes it. There's a Lotta multitasking. Although sometimes she says she sees people doing a questionable types of multi tasking. I saw one guy looking through the pages of a Playboy magazine. Once that was weird I was going to take a picture and when he saw that I was looking at him. I had to pretend like I was like while he was driving. His Dome Light was on and he was traveling right next to me and he was just flipping through pictures of naked girls. And I'm like wow. There is one thing she really does not like about. The job is not the job exactly is some of the other truckers male truckers would. I don't like this very insulting is when other truck drivers. See me coming out of the cab and they asked me. If I'm driving an automatic. Why would it be automatic? Why do you think I can't shift think I I can't float my gears? That's weird and you might have guessed. Eric doesn't look like a stereotypical truckdriver. Look like I realized. I'm becky myself into a corner and you know what I am. Definitely someone who needs to listen to over the road because is actually going to inform me moonwalking. So what I'm going to say is that to my present mind. She doesn't look like a stereotypical truckdriver she superfit. She's pretty and she pays a lot of attention to look Erica. She's a bee's she's not to be fucked with me. Spent twenty years in the Peon and actually back before she got in trouble with the law. She wanted to beat a law. That's right she wanted to be a cop a constable on patrol now while she's out driving it's like she's part of the highway patrol. I'm on the phone to the cops all the time. I see crazy shit. What do you mean? You're the cops all the time? There's crazy stuff going on the freeway all the time like Ali driving and then there's a ladder I call the cops on like I am number two lane Northbound eight eighty. There is a ladder and and I don't know who dropped it and then a few minutes later I'll call back like didn't you just call me. I said Yeah. But there's a mattress on the freeway. Now I didn't know that people called that's that's all day long. What number do you cautious when one or the regular CHP number CHP is the acronym for California Highway Patrol? I didn't know that's how they got if I call nine one one and and it doesn't connect me to see hp than the the operator disconnects me see HP. I've only stopped one time. But that's because there was somebody in the in the fast lane trying to make people stop and they were waving their arms and they were standing in the Fast Lane. They got into an accident in their car was up against the side Wall Medium. Call Nine one one and I rolled the window down and I started screaming at the person. Getting your car getting your car. Now get off the freeway and then the person who is waving heard it was my voice and she was a teenager and she had been drinking and her face was split open and she was trying to get people on the freeway to stop in the Fast Lane. And so I'm looking at this girl bitch. You're about to die. She didn't die because Erica. Was there on the phone with the. Chp Erica told. She sees a lot of scary shit out there while she's driving around and she also had a few close calls borough one day. She was getting off the freeway and her brakes failed. I felt like I just had to do what the hell do. Keep from killing anybody. I was Coming Downhill on Airport Boulevard in Stockton and I lost my breaks all the way to the floor. It was just absolutely nothing. I couldn't change gears because my RPM's for just so high. I my my gear. Shift was locked in. I was just driving right into the intersection and my light turned red and their light turned green and nobody could see that. I was having a problem and the cars started going in the car right in front of me. It was just enough to where I made a left in a whipped around him may like a C- like ch and then and then I jack knifed to stop and I destroyed a trailer because I was carrying doubles and there were tomatoes and and I completely demolished the light signal box. But I couldn't stop.
New York Icons: Kaufman Astoria Studios
"New York for its entire. History has brought people together of wildly different backgrounds and that might be different races or cultures or a geographic areas Irish people and Jews and African Americans and you know Italians but also different classes. You had the tenement girl and the rich playboy and everybody in between well. That's just a natural for storytelling. But when these stories were told by Hollywood what was distinctly New York about them could get flattened out for the mainstream. If you look today at a Marx brothers movies the first couple of Marx brothers films. They're throwing all these terms around. Mommy's Nora Nori. There is Jewish for free loader animal crackers in the coconuts where designs you know for a New York audience but when the Marx Brothers then do moved to Hollywood and they begin making films for MGM. There's no Yiddish in those movies anymore. Right they become the sort of universal. You Know Hollywood movie Marx Brothers that that's from forty second street classical nine hundred thirty three musical about the Broadway chorus girl who becomes a star that connick number has the busby Berkeley dance formations but it also has the skyline the elevated train street vendors and attempted rape and murder. It's a film about New York. Made in Hollywood that helped form what sanders calls the mythic city. That dream version of New York. That's a distillation of the real place. Forty Second Street and all those back stage musicals that were made all the homes that were about the putting on of a Broadway show. They were shot in Broadway theaters. They were shot in Hollywood sound stage theaters. You know there was just endless numbers of these amazing films which did not have a single frame except possibly the establishing shot the opening shot would be shot in New York as the credits ran by with music behind him in. May Nineteen thirty. Three paramount turned the Astoria studios over to its main creditor western electric that companies filmmaking arm Eastern Services Studios INC operated it as a rental studio for independent productions. Its output varied widely. The Scoundrel for example was set in Manhattan's literary world. Noel Coward plays a ruthless hated publisher. Julian place the woman he charms. Mary's then abandoned putting something happened. Man I do live. I hope you're playing folk killed when you're dying using it on. The homepage of the year does not think of human when he dies. He's condemned to damnation unless he finds one person on Earth to mourn. Him novelists writes Ben. Hecht and Charles MacArthur rotated but at Astoria. They also got to produce and direct. They won an academy award for best original. We don't be Marquette. Hulu your new. There was a series of Spanish language. Musical starring Tangos Star Carlos Gardell Tambien. A nineteen thirty. Three's Emperor Jones was based on the controversial Eugene O'Neill play main character was a black pullman porter who escapes prison to become dictator of a small island. The film could only have been made with independent funding. Then the studios were called to service for World War Two. The Department acquired the property in Nineteen Forty Two and the pictorial center of the army. Signal Corps moved into make trading and propaganda films. They expanded the facility and built barracks for the soldiers. The army used motion pictures in the war effort and turned to experienced filmmakers for help frank. Capra worked on a series of orientation films called why we fight one episode related to our won the Oscar for best documentary. Just what was it? Made US change our way of living overnight but turned our resources are machines our whole nation into one vast awesome producing more and more weapons of war instead of the old materials by the end of the war the ABC employed over two thousand people making movies over half of them civilians. All this work even brought new film techniques like multiple angles shooting and change film in even more momentous ways for five years American audience. It has been seeing newsreels. And it's someone you know. A movie maker said well you couldn't you couldn't bring in the enemy for for production meeting you know before. The battle and people went out with sixteen millimeter cameras. And these lightweight cameras that could go everywhere. They saw actual action after the war audiences and creators had developed a taste for this more realistic filmmaking. There was an appetite. For a new kind of filmmaking. That would be used more available light less contrived cinematography be shot with faster. Granier film be more shot on location and feel more like a took place in real place and not this kind of fabricated construct and be more adult this desire for realism meant the glossy representations of New York. That Hollywood made before the war wouldn't do director is like Ilya. Kazan felt their stories needed New York locations and New York talent. You don't understand I coulda had class. Gerber contamination could have been somebody by the MID FIFTIES NEW YORK. Filmmakers were more than just contenders. The Oscar wins for on the waterfront in nineteen fifty five and Mardi fifty six affirm. That excellence could come from outside. Hollywood New York is setting is capable of whatever mood or dramatic statement? You WanNa make architecturally in its light for talk about winter light as Mr Bergman did. New York's winter light image. That Sidney Lumet in the documentary film titled by Sidney Lumet. He grew up on the lower east side in nineteen fifty seven. He went from directing theater and TV. Two movies with twelve angry men. You're asking us to believe that somebody else did the stabbing with exactly the same kind of knife. Larger a million or one go onto make more New York classics like Serpico Dog Day afternoon and network. He died in twenty eleven. I'm not comfortable anyplace but New York when I leave New York for any other place in the United States My nose starts to bleed. Filmmakers at this time took full advantage of New York locations for their exterior shooting. When they needed a controlled indoor set they may do with whatever studios were available. Tv Or old movie studios the old Bronx by graph for example operated as a rental studio under different names until the seventy s the Astoria Studios. Meanwhile were still occupied by the army. There was some leftover stages from the twenty s and they reuse them and Sidney Lumet told me amazing stories of going onto these studios which he was in an editing room up in the Bronx. That had been Edison's old editing suite with an e draw you know kind of worked into the curtains E for Edison. These were the oldest movie studios in the world and they were using them in the nineteen fifties to make all those great early in mid fifty s movies like Twelve angry men and on the waterfront the city eventually recognized how vital New York and the screener to each other in nineteen sixty six mayor. John established the first mayor's film office in the world to lower hurdles to filming their Lindsay's film office streamline the permitting process and removed a lot of red tape for shooting in the city he even dedicated a police. Unit to location shoots then in nineteen seventy. The army moved production to different site and turned the Astoria property over to the federal government. This was not simply a movement of some soldiers because most of the people making the films were grips carpenters electricians and actress who were part of. New York's commercial motion picture industry so they were not at all happy when this plug got pulled in Astoria. The complex sat abandoned. For years unprotected and open vandals people would go in there. Rip The copper out of the walls and those people with a purpose then they were also just people in there for mischief terrible condition in the meantime you have this eyesore at the edge of a residential communities have halfway between the area and Long Island city. It's just getting worse and worse and worse. They abandoned cars dropped all around weeds growing through the sidewalk. I remember this very clearly. The film unions local community and the city got together to preserve the studio site. Save film jobs and clean up the neighborhood in nineteen seventy seven. They formed the nonprofit a story of Motion Picture and Television Center Foundation. They managed to prevent the studio from being sold off or turn down by getting the site on the National Register of historic places a process that normally took years.

"We got a hold of Isis aquarian via phone. She's in Hawaii. We had seen her at the source family reunion dinner but but we didn't talk to her there but she heard our show and she agreed to come on and talk to us and then she did it and it sounded like this high isis. How're you ewing doing Okay well thank you so much for doing this with us. Sure so isis want you tell us about how you got involved in the source family family to begin with I was living in. La Actually engaged to a famous rock and roll photographer. Rondo Shelly loved La. Look everything we were you were you originally from La. I grew up in the air force. My Dad was a military man so we lived in California before. But you know I basically basically lived Oregon California Hawaii okay. A real coastal girl. Oh actually we were living in Florida. My devastation it takes canaveral on. When was this that you are working with your photographer? Slash boyfriend in L. A. Mid Sixties. Okay actually hit meant what Jim Baker when he had three famous restaurants on sunset boulevard breath aware in the world and then the source and he was actually known as Food Goo. Jim Baker was an iconic Hollywood legend. Before he was even bother you owed. Oh Oh okay. That's news to me. In what way his restaurants were all very famous okay. Everybody went to his restaurants. They were shot as a curve. Her and he was you know he was La Player. He was very good looking and he was very inland with no one. BEADY and Steve Allen and it was the in crowd and and he was very well-known. Interesting Steve Allen of our ears so those those two people seem like unlikely. Unlikely friends because Steve Allen was sort of not very into the spiritual side of things. Do you know anything about that friendship while Jim Baker wasn't he didn't it really started his spiritual trip until he sold you old world kind of went on his journey and devise on each other before then. The way I described him Baker's he was the ultimate animal man. He's a man's man that he was lazy. And then now the women loved Kim Piazza Array of friends from Jack Lang to Paul Breaks. So well connected. When did you make the connection with him? Well when I hit lose UCLA. Before I met lawn I had gone to the old world. I was actually introduced to him and his wife. At the time I actually became very good friends with his wife. The store was kind of a whole put on us. Never really kindness connected we did we. Didn't you thought maybe a relationship or something might arise sooner than it did. It was a playboy and then I just Kinda moved onto another crowd and Net ron and then you know we were doing our studio. I haven't seen Jim in in a year or two. I heard that he opened. This restaurant called the source. It was the beginning beginning of this. That you chain restaurant that he opened up and we were looking for models for Jesus Christ superstar Mhm Booster we were doing and I love that I need some Jesus type looking people and I said well. I've heard that my old friend. Jim has him at this restaurant. There's a collection of Jesus wearing roads. I stepped onto the source doors patio. He came out looking like Moses. You know so close he wanted. Jesus and Moses. Yeah so you know is is women following him and beautiful young people at the stores and it was just like something happened I just I clicked. uh-huh never looked back. Did you have to go home and think about it and then return the next day just immediately a member it was immediately. I was Aw something happened. I would if it was if I knew this is what I was there for. I instantly blue that we had made agreements before incriminating and he confirmed that just like my destiny was that was it it was assets. What was the confirmation to just kind of agree with you or did he have some kind of evidence of that now? He looked at me and he said I. I've been waiting for you. It was like a cosmic snick download. And then he's voiced it. Okay yeah so I went back home and I told you on that. I was playing to join the first family way and I thought he would actually come with. Yeah I remember in the documentary. He was saying that that wasn't for him. Come with me. And he thought I was stark raving me now and he let me go thinking that you know in a couple of weeks I would be back but I didn't. That was that that next day you were having having Frist Bruce as a family and the sunflower and Solomon. Yeah that was the proof of Solomon and that to the studio and I got some cameras and I just started documenting. Because that's what I was used to doing. That started my path of being a family. Historian all starring in our guys keep her which is so cool and I think what really makes the source standout from so many other groups that you have so much documentation. How much of that is yours? And how did you kind of make sure that you yourself were included in the in the documentation. Well it was all mine. Basically I started it and then I was just with him all the time following him around and I became like one of the family administrators and Kinda hands the camera off to a Swiss. This brother only and by that time. He likes the whole thing being you know recording and he said this will end up saving the legacy and who has all that now. Does it take a good chunk of your house. How many photos yard? I you know she'll onto the art guys through forty some years of being here Hawaii. They started getting started deteriorating because the climate and just one day I well well you know I gotta figure this out. I gotTa do something and that was about fifteen years ago when I decided I was going to write the book. I never never intended to be the one that wrote the book but I couldn't get anybody else to do it. Some people were families didn't even know they were in the source family. They didn't Walker kids to know about the story. Okay so so how. Many of the former members G. think are still open about how they were in the source family versus what percentage would you say. Just kind of. Don't talk about it. It's buried deep in the past for them. Well since the documentaries a book and all the publicity the city and and we've had a couple of family reunions. I think everybody's pretty open to you. Know some people that that are negative negative to it and realization that we all came to and it was quite a shock to me when I think it was. We didn't all have the same. Mainly -ality is added censure thought through the Lens of our own being our own karmic experience that we had. y'All were on a different different paths with it so if we different people will get different stories everybody else. I'll have the same experience That's a really nuanced onced. Lovely view that you know we all have these different experiences and we might see them you know totally subjectively. I feel like that's A A little contrasting with some of the the ways that was presented in documentary where it felt more like father yoed is the embodiment of God and everyone in the source kind of saw him that way and he really was. What was the word? It was like your your earthly master. Something like that. So how do we do. Yes we you went through those phases through all phases from the beginning of the family we went to so many incarnations experience. The American Indian Chips the Hebrews. He took assuming everything he was on his path. Also listen incredible me but you know yes it got messy at times you know we were all all trying to figure it out including him he had to figure it out too. There was bends in the road. Yes you know. I think we all got a passing grade. We were a mystery school. We were just hippie. We were into the spiritual pursuit and it was new territory for him for all of us. Who is God? He was God to us. It's not uncommon to talk that way not uncommon to talk about being in our God goddess. Okay so what's he got in the same way that I'm God. Yeah Yeah so you know forty years ago that was just like new territory. We we saw each other gods. We saw each other spiritual beings

"playboy" Discussed on Ridiculous History
"Of the often controversial Hugh, Hefner. The rumors are true ridiculous historians. We are joined once again, with a friend of the show and host of the history of standup podcast. Wayne Federman friend of the American people, Wayne Federman. Friend to our producer, Casey peck, from Wayne Federman. How're you doing? Wayne. I really would rather be speaking. Casey that guy's incredible. He made shaima in, but you won't be able to hear him because he's not piped into the phone, but we will rela- any words of wisdom that he provides on his behalf is he beaming right now because I'm talking about him is he says he says that he has his face is obscured by a giant computer monitor. So I can't tell you that person his voice in my ear says that he is okay. And he just leaned in and give a big smile fund story before we get started. And this is true story way when we were putting together this episode, Casey, actually asked us to hold and he traveled all the way back from Paris, France to be here today very special trip. It's true. It's all true. Yeah. Let me just say that it's very much on brand for casing. So when we previously spoke together, we looked at the history of what we call stand up today. Not just as the, the craft or the, the actual performance that we think of with somebody standing with the microphone in an audience that hopefully loves them, but not always we also talked about some of the bigger social questions that stand up brings to the forefront. And sometimes those can be uncomfortable questions that people don't typically explore now, the they laugh at too, but sometimes they leave thinking in our earlier conversations leading up to today's episode. Use started telling us about someone that was, I think maybe vaguely familiar to us but somewhere, we weren't super well acquainted with, with, which is the comedian and activist dick, Gregory wing, could you tell us a little bit about. Just for our audience who dick Gregory is, well, dick Gregory is famous in the history of up for one specific thing. And that is, he became the first major and there's a caveat, we can go into it comedian African American comedian to play white nightclubs. And how that happened, we will tell you in a moment. I'm sure but he was just a it was a funny kid. He was an athlete. He went to college. He was in the service, and then he moved from Saint Louis to Chicago to pursue his dream of becoming a stand up comedian and could only play the black clubs in and around Chicago and rears really struggling actually had a day job. He worked at the post office. He washed cars all trying to subsidize this career his and at this point, he's, he's married. He has yet has a lot of responsibility, so leading up to this big moment. We're gonna get into that involves another. Historical luminary and controversial figure dick Gregory was doing his best to get into the kind of Chicago stand up nightclub scene. And as you said, it wasn't a very welcoming scene for people of color, and I wanna play this clip from American masters, on PBS where Gregory, kind of describes this moment where he had to disarm a white audience at a club. I wanna say an Alabama or something like that, where someone calls him a racial slur, and he has to take that opportunity to defuse the situation rather than make a scene. And you know put his career in jeopardy because these were alternately his clients, who he was there to entertain. So I think it's really is a very teachable moment about the kind of climate that he was dealing with. So I go down there, and I'm not thinking of anything, I didn't know what to time that a negro is not permitted to work white nightclub. That's an all American in remember not knowing that I used to. Practice. What do you do? When some white person yell something negative out embarrass you. And so I used to practice with my wife, but it didn't work because us to nice and kind and in one night, I don't know how that this little job, and this little hick town miss your Walker, Indiana, so that you had to say no more. So I'm Michelle walking Danna and. And somebody get that nigger off the stage. Now, I was ready for and everybody just froze as why book. Call me call me a ring. Just hearts me trigger. I'm out of. There's no way you can feel sorry for me or embarrassed and laugh. When I got him back now I'm all together. Welcome to. Thank you. Jesus christ. I wanted to hit him myself, and then the guy walks say sorry. This. Sorry, almost pay. You man. I've been trying to figure out how to get to this, so Wayne, I wanted to know if you thought that maybe this was kind of, if he would have had to deal with similar situations like this leading up to this moment, and he almost describes it as, like an aha moment, where it's like this is how I can deal with this kind of heckling. Right. Well he, I feel like dick, Gregory, especially at that time, had a very high emotional, and comedic IQ on how to handle Krauts, and it's remarkable considering he's not that experienced other than basically playing these black clubs. But I just think he had an innate sense of one how to perform in front of white audiences. And to like, had a diffuse these very volatile situations that I'm sure would come up all the time. Right. Because as as you venture before he was he was working. Let's see his comedic career began in what the. Mid to late nineteen fifties. Is that correct? Yes. Yes. Yes. That's exactly correct. And at that time, there wasn't a lot of, you know, African American comedians on television or on the Sullivan show is just a few and once in a while see somebody, and there really wasn't a, a big circuit to play the big white nightclubs, which we called nightclubs at that time. And, but they wouldn't use African American comedian, once, once in a while, they would but as a rule, that's the, you know, they'd have an act, you know, Sammy Davis could play there or something like that. Or, you know, a team or a singer, Pearl Bailey or something like that, all the time, but not, not a standup. I saw really interesting clip with comedian Paul Mooney who was another very outspoken comic, a contemporary, maybe a little younger than Gregory, but still kind of very much like in the same scene as Richard Pryor, maybe like the next generation, but he talked about how in Hollywood nothing could ever be. The two white, but it was very easy to for something to be two black. And I think that's a really interesting distinction, where like you talk about Sammy Davis juniors performers of that Keller. They were a little more palatable to a white audience, but a comic like Gregory, who wasn't pulling any punches. That would be a little harder to take for these folks. Maybe weren't used to seeing things like that is that would you say that's accurate? Yes Mooney is one hundred percent on like people would go, okay. This is this is too much for. But again, dick, Gregory I think really learned how to thread, the needle almost like in a, a Jackie Robinson kind of way that he was like able to like take white audiences expectations of what a black guy would talk about. And he talked about racial stuff all the time that was the centerpiece of his act, but he did it in a very, non threatening very human way, as opposed to an angry way in that same NPR PBS clip that, we just heard later on talks about that. He. Was always respectful and he wasn't bitter and that he wasn't angry. And this was all I'm sure underneath. But again, I just feel like his emotional IQ was through the roof on how to handle these situations. So it wasn't like Paul Mooney who would not, you know, I can't imagine Paul Mooney handling that situation in that club the same way it would be way more confrontational. Yeah. Absolutely. I, I agree. One hundred percent with that statement about emotional IQ recently this, this is not a plug. I actually do. Listen to the history of stand up. Oh, yeah. Season two started. And in season. Two guys just had an episode come out recently about the playboy circuit. And this was something that I didn't recognize this episode for anybody listening is available now when our episode comes out, so give it a listen. This brings us to something that we'd we'd love for you explore with. Us here, which is the interactions between dick Gregory and Hugh, Hefner, the mastermind behind playboy magazine Lear the playboy empire. No, this is something you were alluding to in the beginning for sure. And this playboy clever, I didn't realize was a big source of entertainment and massive, you know, opportunity for working comics. If you've got a regular gig at the playboy club, which was in Chicago at the time of that was a massive break for you. Can you tell us a little bit about how dick Gregory literally kind of stumbled his way into this massive break? The story is fantastic. Well, this is you soom. This is why talking to you guys. This moment is very important in the big history of stand up and we covered briefly in our first season. And then went a little closer in. Thank you. For the kind words about the playbay episode. I appreciate if we ate it for anyone. It's the eight of us that are interested in the history of. Stand up. So this is what happens twenty nine thousand nine hundred sixty the first playboy club opens your. Like, what does that mean a playboy club well in fifty three real quickly Hafner publishes this magazine, December fifty three called playboy, Maryland rose on the cover? There's no date stamped on it, because it might have been the last one and it's basically has nudie pictures in it. But nothing too graphic it. I hope that's clear. What that means? Yes. Yeah. And then like articles, and he was into literature. And so anyway, this magazine, attache cog. Oh this kid who had this dream becomes his runaway success in the fifties? So he is like printing money by fifty seven is outselling time magazine outselling Esquire. It's like this incredible end has a big female readership, as well. So he three things happen around this time one he does this huge indoor jazz festival. Galled the playboy jazz festival to he buys a mansion in Chicago and the call at the playboy mansion, which is like this party house, and three he opens the playboy club and also four. There's another thing, I'm forgetting, he starts, this syndicated television show called Playboy's penthouse, which is this black and white, and the first two years, and you kinda get sort of presents like this party that you're invited to so people are sitting around, and they're drinking, and they're smoking, and there's a guy playing piano, and suddenly Sammy Davis comes in and sayings. And then Lenny Bruce does some comedy it's, it's just very incredible. Like insight into like the world. He wants to create after and that was kind of like a variety show for him. Right. Is that where we get that idea of him with the pipe and the smoking jacket and the whole? Yeah, yeah, yeah. But it's not it is a variety show, but not on a preceding stage in like a living room and then we let's go over to the dining room and then let's get some. Cocktails made over here. And let's listen to side Coleman play witchcraft. And it's it's just a great like promotional tool for the playboy brand, which was, and we talk about it in the podcast that he was going for sophistication like that was his like he thought got if I could make nudie picture, you know, this part of a sophisticated lifestyle with high fidelity and sports cars, and jazz, music, and great literature that. And that's what worked, you know what I mean? So it was like, suddenly not a smutty behind the counter kind of embarrassing thing if you wanted to see pictures of beautiful women, so that was that was another genius Hugh Hefner's. So he's make eats kill killing it killing during Eisenhower's administration. So he opens his playboy club, February twenty ninth nineteen sixty and the playboy club was this. You had to pay twenty dollars and got a key. Literally a metal key later..
