Tonight, revisiting the past, we'll look at stories from history that carry lessons for the present. We begin with our story of Canada's unmarked graves. In May, 2021, when archeologists detected what they believed to be 200 unmarked graves at an old school in Canada, it brought new attention to one of the most shameful chapters of that nation's history. Starting in the 1880s and much of the 20th century, more than a 150,000 children from hundreds of indigenous communities across Canada were forcibly taken from their parents by the government, and sent to what were called residential schools. Funded by the state and run by churches, they were designed to assimilate and christianize indigenous children by ripping them from their parents, their culture and their community. The children were often referred to as savages and forbidden from speaking their languages or practicing their traditions. As Anderson Cooper first reported last year, many were physically and sexually abused and thousands of children never made it home. The last of Canada's 139 residential schools for indigenous children closed in 1998. Most have been torn down. But the mezcal residential school in Saskatchewan still stands. Its windows boarded up, its rooms gutted. A reminder to a nation that would rather forget a three story tombstone for generations of children who died here. Sometimes I wish it would be gone for all what happened here. You wish this had been torn down. Yeah. I could hear everything in here. What was done? It lingers Leona woolf, who comes from the mezcal reserve, was 5 years old, and she says she was taken from her home in 1960. School officials and police would often show up unannounced in indigenous communities and round up children, some as young as three. Parents could be jailed if they refused to hand their children over. When kids arrived at their schools, their traditional long hair was shaved off. If they tried to speak their language, they were often punished. They put me in a little dark room like that. They shut the door and then they take off the light. All I had to look through was this much like I was in jail. She says the abuse, many kids at mezcal and suffered from the Catholic priests and nuns wasn't just physical. Father Joel was fondling the girls here. A priest's father Joel was fondling girls. Yeah, this used to be sick me. They used to have a bed here. And he would take girls into the book. Yeah. My cousin. He took your cousin in here. How old was she? Yeah. And she was only 8. I grew up a very, very mean woman. Because of all what happened to me. You learned that here, you think. Yeah. She is not the only one. More than a 150,000 children were sent to residential schools, which Canada's first prime minister supported to, in his words, sever children from the tribe, and civilized them. For much of the 20th century, the Canadian government supported that mission. This report aired in 1955. They learned not only games and traditions, such as the celebration of saint Valentine's Day, but the mastery of words, which the idea for the schools came in part from the United States. In 1879, the Carlisle Indian industrial school opened in Pennsylvania, where this photo was taken of Native American children when they first arrived. This is them four months later. The school's motto was kill the Indian save the man. Consequently, ours was killed the Indian in the child. Kill the Indian in the child. That was the guiding principle here in Canada. Chief Wilton little child whose pre was 6 years old when he was taken to this residential school in Alberta, then he says he was given a new name. My name was number 65 for all those years. Just a number. Just the number. 65 picked that up stupid or 65. Why'd you do that idiot? What does that feel like at 6 years old to be called a number? Well, I think that's sort of a trauma begins. Not just the physical abuse. Psychological abuse, spiritual abuse, and worse of all sexual abuse. You were sexually abused. Yes. I think that's where my anger.

"That's coercion right there. I'm really grateful that women in hollywood now are starting to talk about this and starting to write articles about it so we know. Emilia clarke had this problem. Because there's an article about it in cnn or whatever but like more and more women are saying wait a minute no no and also after the fact when we realize wait my whole marriage was a sham.

"Any psychological abuse towards Elizabeth Holmes or any manipulation of Elizabeth Holmes, which you know going into this trial had been reported they might do, and that what the defense might argue was that she wasn't capable of intent to defraud because she was under the control of someone else in this case, sunny balcony and, of course, Sonny Bill Wani firmly denies those allegations. Alright Ed Ludlow live outside the courthouse in San Jose. We're looking at folks starting to make their exit there. Elizabeth Holmes may be leaving at any moment. I want to stick with this story and bring in Bloomberg opinions. Tim O'Brien, who wrote a piece about what he expects to hear from Elizabeth Holman's and interestingly, Tim. Her defense has talked about reality being far more boring than the story you read and bad blood or The newspapers. You know, what are you expecting to hear? In this case as it plays out over the next few months? Well, you know her defense has a steep hill to climb. If that's the argument, they're going to make Emily because what's going to be a battle in this courtroom? Is. Did she know what she was doing? Or didn't she and the prosecutors? I don't think would have come this far if they didn't feel like they had a preponderance of evidence. Demonstrating that perhaps they won't. Perhaps it will go in another direction in the courtroom, but I will assume that they've got Evidentially material that shows exactly What she was thinking at different points in time when Theranos and homes were making claims for its blood testing product that were wildly in opposition to what it could actually do that may take the form of email. It may take the former witness testimony. From advisers of the company from employees at the company from outside investors. But that's really where the rubber will meet the road here, and her defense attorneys will obviously say that she was A zealous and passionate advocate for product she believed in And while she may have exaggerated things, she never knowingly misrepresented everything and anything. And that's really what both sides have to accomplish in terms of the jury, convincing convincing a jury that she committed a crime. It's all about intent. Of course, we've been waiting potentially for her defense to lay out this argument of her facing psychological abuse from her business partner, her ex boyfriend study Boudouani. If that happens, she could take the stand herself, which would be a pretty Significant moment. You know, the stakes are very high here. If Elizabeth Holmes takes the stand, what does she have to prove again? She's going to have to prove that she didn't act with intent. To mislead patients, investors and business partners, all of whom were severely damaged by what occurred at their nose. You know Elizabeth Holmes and her company blew through $600 million of other people's money. People's health was affected by it. Partnerships bit partners. Business prospects were affected by this, and obviously investors lost money. I I think when she takes the stand, obviously, her own credibility is going to be at stake here. I think the argument that she was so psychologically, um Damaged and abused by Sonny Ball. Wani that she didn't know right from wrong is also a steep hill for the decline. I think how she comports herself on the witness stand the tone, her famous voice that is often entered different registers from time to time. Is going to have an impact on this jury. There's a real risk here for her sitting in front of a jury, and I'm not convinced yet that her defense attorneys are going to let her do that. But if they do, it's going to be obviously a pivotal moment. Tim, You know what's also interesting is that the journalist who blew the lid off of their announced John Kerry rue he was on our show. Yesterday, he wrote the original investigation in The Wall Street Journal of Theranos. Back in 2015. He's also on the potential witness list, and he believes that if he is called that part of the defense's argument will be To turn the table on her accusers to say that this was a witch hunt. What do you make of that argument? Well, we've heard witch hunt a lot in terms of different people defending themselves over the last several years, including former President United States. People can claim whatever they want about the intention of prosecutors, Emily, but at the end of the day in a courtroom, it's going to come down to cold. Hard evidence, if if you put in front of a jury explicit evidence that shows Elizabeth Holmes Actively and knowingly misled investors, investors and partners and ultimately, patients. That's going to be a very damning outcome and simply saying that the prosecutors are on a witch hunt. Won't oblivion any of that. All right, Tim O'Brien of Bloomberg opinion. This is gonna be a long trial. Three months of this, and we will be talking about it every step of the way, Tim. Thanks So much for your insight there coming up.

"On. What all this is about to cover. Sure first of all this is about elizabeth homes. The woman who at nineteen years old dropped out of stanford promise to change the world with her blood testing technology. If she had made it work it would have been revolutionary. She could have been the next. Steve jobs are was in love with her vision. I thought she was brilliant. But the reality was very different from the rhetoric that she shared demise homes know at the time. She made those statements that theranos could not do all those tests. Yeah she knew in reality. The technology was not working. It found its way into walgreens free short span of time that meant people. Everyday patients and doctors came in contact with their nose. Technology and in many cases got inaccurate results. And what this criminal fraud. Trial is about is about the investors who lost millions of dollars by putting money and faith in theranos. You know all we can do is hope that the jury sees it clearly and does the right thing. And what would that be Send her to prison for twenty years. That's the maximum sentence and the doctors and patients who were misled by the company and elizabeth homes herself. The founder right in homes has pleaded not guilty on all these counts. But you emailed me rebecca over the weekend like hey. There was just a big development in this trial. Like what what is going on now. So there is this eleventh hour bombshell. That came out over the weekend. This is a huge deal. Unsealed documents that suggest that elizabeth's attorneys will allege that. She was abused by her former boyfriend. And coo sunny bell wani. The heart of it is pervasive. Psychological abuse emotionally psychologically and even physically everything from what she could eat to what she could do to who she could speak to and the defense is really putting forth this argument that she had post traumatic stress disorder that she believed those misstatements that she then put forth to investors because she from essentially a battered woman syndrome. We should say that sunny unequivocally denies all of these claims and allegations but this is going to be a very interesting defense because what her team is not essentially doing with the defense like this is saying. She didn't do some of the things that she's accused of doing. What they are doing is saying there's a reason for it. And the reason is not elizabeth homes herself right so so then jury selection begins today right. So how does this inform what this trials about to look like a real essential going to have her team. Admitting like yes. Yes yes all these awful things are completely true. Is that where this goes immediately. Well we know for one thing. She will definitely take the stand. I mean it's a ninety nine percent probability. She will her attorneys. It's very very rare in a case like this criminal white collar fraud that the person charged does take the stand but her attorneys have already indicated through court filings. That she most certainly will take the stand to talk about this alleged abuse. We also know that there are over. Two hundred witnesses on the witness list and a number of them are in our podcast. If you're sitting across from elizabeth homes in the courtroom. What's going to be going through your mind. How could you. We talked to people who worked with elizabeth homes. Are you surprised that she's going to trial instead of taking a plea no. She's a big risk taker. And i think she's wilder. Robot dykes and there are. I can tell you brad. A lot of other employees who we've spoken to who they look at this new defense or the defense. That has now been newly unsealed and they really struggle to buy into it based on the things they witnessed and experienced behind the scenes. There's also things we raise. In the first couple of episodes which show the audience some of the potential inconsistencies that jurors will really have to contend with in this argument the elizabeth homes that we knew was there before sunny she. She created this company at nineteen years old and dropped out of sanford. Sunny didn't join the company until two thousand nine. So there's a handful of years in which elizabeth was running the operation on her own how she spoke to the press back then how she and interacted with other employees back than these are all questions that the jury will have to contend with as well as her post theranos life which. There's a lot of bombshells in that brad because anybody who's followed this closely knows. She was coming into this trial pregnant. We now know. She gave birth to her first child about a month ago. And i think you know they'll worry about sending women to prison with a baby and how's that a factor into the jury's interpretation of her but to have it in their face like that and to use a baby as upon. I really think that could backfire in your introduction. I think you touched on something really interesting. Which is the pandemic itself and you know if you had talked about blood testing technology. For five years ago there would be certainly people who experienced blood testing and any sort of testing in a laboratory setting but now with the pandemic. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone. Who hasn't relied on the outcome of a medical test to make determinations about their life and the question is now. To what extent is the jury going to look at that and say well yes. Of course there are no should have held itself to a much higher standard. Or could you find jurors who would look at the situation. That's unfolded in the pandemic and say well. Is it all reliable anyway. Can you really trust any of it. What i gotta say. I'm looking forward to at least new episodes in the drought because in most true crime you have.

"Which i think is like really interesting when it comes to the latest like bid of black horror that we see but also i think when i think of those films like get out or when i think of the show like lovecraft country is how they're approaching trauma in a very complex way so there's race-based trauma that the characters are immersed in which is on the larger societal level. But then they also look at like the individualized experiences trauma whether that be traumatic loss in grief from death whether that e from facing psychological abuse and physical abuse children whether that be facing the collect or sexual harassment and sexual assault but also in terms of being able to look at the intergenerational transmission of trauma which you see on display when it comes to the freeman family in particular in lovecraft country and so those are some of the common themes. I'm looking at. But i think also one of the themes i see. I don't know if other people see it this way of seeing that we can survive. Which is i think a beautiful slip in terms of seeing black people in horror because especially for people face like what racism or white supremacy. Even if it's in the supernatural context or a kind of like alternate amplified context in what you would see in real life. It is refreshing analysis think hopeful to see like oh there can be black characters in this film that go through all this horrible stuff and they actually make it and they actually subdue or overcome the monsters in the film which i think is great Yeah you know you raise a really interesting point. Because i do think that there is that angle right that old. Like even if it's a fantasy like we can overcome this white supremacy in like evil piece but i think that there's also an angle of looking at that as like re traumatizing. Yeah and i've heard people talk about. Oh i don't know if. I want to watch that because it feels very triggering and you share just any thoughts about like what that looks like and also some tips for how we can process these experiences in horror that might feel triggering another. That's a really good point. Because i've heard especially around. Lovecraft country of people talk about trauma poorer. And and do we really need to make more pieces of media that center black pain and to what end and i think it's complicated right because i think if you are a black audience member it's hard to withstand that and i'm not gonna lie lake with both get out and lovecraft country like i had to pause multiple times because and for me. I think the reason why is like going back what you were saying earlier. In the conversation. I can watch. Mike myers and no. That's not real. There's a degree of distance. But when i'm watching a show like lovecraft country even though..

I remember talking to coach condos The former coach at ucla and she said if anything should be studied in her story it is her support system because they are the greatest support system in the world. And so this idea that you have to scream and yell and berate and belittle and breakdown an athlete in order to make them want to be great is just thrown out the window. You know she had this incredibly supportive set of parents. She had a coach who had never coached. Elite gymnasts who was not vying to become an olympic coach and protected her. The first time simone was invited to a training camp at the curly ranch. Marta karolyi just railed. You all these other coaches were like. Oh my gosh. she's amazing. She did such a great job.

Jim and amy in consult with simone's parents decided to keep her out of the next camp. They declined the next camp in retaliation. Marta said well. Then we'll see you later and she wasn't invited back for more than a year but amy will say if she had taken her back that next week and she had been subject we month after month to that same treatment.

But she would not be the simone biles we know today and simone has said. If i had that kind of coaching. I would have quit. You know. I'm not the kind of person that can can deal with that. And so that next year was twenty thirteen. Simone starts winning everything and of course.

Marta said ten more. Even though your ankles hurting or you have an achilles issue. And when she went back to the jim she was encouraged to be joyful and interact with her teammates and she even during that karoly rain was coach differently her parents. Your mom's told me that she you know she did not like a lot of the rules. There was a very big role that parents were not allowed to stay in the same hotel as the gymnasts and nellie broke that rule and because of all that support because she was allowed to remain joyful and herself. We see this incredible gymnasts but it makes you wonder how many simone biles have there been with the talent..

Who come from around the world. Because i can hear some of you saying it's unesco and they're going to say that it's very hula but joe's dad actually grew up in brooklyn and an joe. Correct me if i'm wrong. You grew up being called joe at home correct. Yeah at least. He called majo- okay. So were pronouncing it. The american way with awareness. Even know. I i did practice. The norwegian will thank you all right. Let's talk about the book. And i want to talk about it if you could tell us a little bit about it. Without spoiling revealing anything at all the theme of the book is brothers. there's Two brothers roy. Who is the older brother who is more introvert. Character are not doing that. Well at school and his younger brother call is more the extrovert likable popular guy doing well at school. They grew up in this small town in the mountains of norway and their parents die when there are in their early teens for from what seems to be a car accident later on call moves to the united states to study business administration and fifteen years. Later he comes back to the small village and roy is at this time running the local gas station. Call coming back with a big plan for the whole village. Which is building a luxurious spa hotel. In which everyone in the village will participate as investors that this is his big plan and he's also bringing his new wife shannon. So the move in with roy us. This progresses with the plan for the for the hotel dog secrets from the past starts rising to the surface. All right and we're not revealing any of those secrets. Where do you start with a book like this. Does it begin for you with the characters with the idea of brothers with the feeling of like. I'm not writing. Hurry whole novel this time. Where do you begin. This novel definitely started with team of of brothers. I grew up with a with a brawler younger than meam. Newts which i was very close to be Like the brothers in the kingdom. We shared a room on the bunk bed and we played football together for many many years and later on when i moved back to oslo where we grew up he moved youtube when we started the band together. And we played in that ballentine. Pass away so we were always very close. And it's not like this is a novel by a keyhole looking into the rail relationship of me and But i definitely draw on the experiences and our emotional bombs in the in this novel. I think it's Also generally about family. it's In my previous novels. I've been subconsciously focusing on sung father relationships but here it's a it's brothers but also family in dreamt The loyalty the obligation. You feel toward a family and of course the dilemma of Following the rules of society and following the unwritten rules of the family which is sometimes especially in this case in conflict. It's interesting to hear you talk about that. Because i think most people when they think of your recurring main character harry hole probably don't think about family and relationships that's partly true yes youngest sister doors with which he feels responsible. But it doesn't have a brother. And i think maybe that's up constantly say was something i did to remove him more from my own person And my situation. I knew that at some point i would have to address the theme of brothers. Because it's it's been there my whole life. It's been such a big part of my life in an interview with the times in two thousand and twelve said that you were increasingly tired of harry hole and that sometimes you found your your books with hole to be very dark and i you know very dark is definitely how i would describe them. I'm curious what qualifies as very dark in your book because this book is is not lighthearted that the kingdom even without whole i guess. There's less physical brutality in In this book this this less violence. But the there's nothing may be more psychological abuse and psychological violence. But i mean hates is is the flip side of the coin to to love so i think is impossible to write about hate violence. Revenge without keeping one eye on love which is the case here. It's loss story. Turn bob dates up. i was asked to come up with a sort of a tagline for the novel and it was a two brothers and one woman.
Word Of Faith's Pattern Of Abuse 'Got Worse Over Time,' Says 'Broken Faith' Author
"Jane Whaley was not satisfied with being a pastor's wife she believed god had bigger plans for her so she pushed against all the norms that kept her from the pulpit and found the church and spend their North Carolina called the word of faith fellowship the church's website shows people singing and smiling Jane Whaley at center stage from the outside it looks like a community of pious believers but some former members say the dangerous cult these people believe that Jane Whaley was their path to salvation and that if they did anything that went against her wishes they would get cancer and die or they would become drug addicts these are things that Jane way we would tell them it was Holbrook more he and Mitch Weiss a fellow AP reporter have been looking into abuse allegations within the church for years our colleague Rachel Martin spoke with them about their new book broken faith and just a note here the story does include descriptions of that alleged abuse there is two sides Jayme wellies yours that's sweet southern grandmotherly type and then there's the Jane that nobody sees except church members the one who screaming at the top of a longs congregants warning them that the devils have to come out it's like the Jekyll and Hyde right Holbrooke can you describe what people saw in her what was bringing them to this church I think that in the beginning when people would go to the church they were selling a lot of love yeah the members of this church they live in nice homes they drive nice cars the children are well mannered they have a Christian school so I think when a lot of families first go there everything seems great but over time Janeway Lee and her other ministers they take more and more control of your lives in fact a lot of times they'll remove children from their families home it and place them with ministers to be raised and what that does is over time sometimes those kids care more about the minister's than their own parents so it makes it difficult for families to leave so it's not a quick thing where you just walk in the door and they say Hey come on in you can come in you can never leave we're gonna take your television magazines radio all that away from you an institute all these rules it's a slow progressive thing and Mitch she when the other church leadership they would use family members against one another I mean hobar talked about how they would separate children sometimes as leverage but they got family members to serve as informants almost absolutely you have to realize they believe that Jane well it was a profit that god spoke to her and everything she said was the gospel and one of the techniques that she used what she had everybody informed on each other it was in a way she would have them tell her their deepest darkest secrets and then she kept the file of those secrets and if they threatened to leave or did something wrong she had all the evidence she needed there to keep them in line so it it was a range of emotional and psychological abuse but from interviews you did with a hundred or so former members you were able to reconstruct a pattern of a violent physical abuse can you just a lay out for us some of those more extreme examples of that yes it was something that that really got worse over time and you have to understand what her philosophy is the doctrine is is really pretty simple doubles a real and if you're a drug addict it's because you have this drug gavel if you know your alcoholic the same if you're having an affair it's the same thing there are there lawful devils and so what she would do is it was called devils and deliverance where they would have people surround you and scream at you at to get the devils out get out double yeah and and it will go on and on and on perfect example is with the baby if babies cry it wasn't because they were hungry or they had a dirty diaper it was because it was a devil inside them that was making them cry so you would have groups of people surrounding a you know in a fan and screaming until that baby would just get tired and finally you know go to sleep and not to scream it just it just to be specific this method call blasting they are they're right in front of the subject's face right there screaming into the baby's ears enter a like inches from her face exactly and that's how she started at the beginning with her congregants over time it became more and more violent it wasn't enough just to screen to scare the devils out of people now you had to punch people you had to hold them down to restrain them you had to choke them you had to do everything possible to get rid of that devil and that's when it became extremely violent that's where the people who who recounted their stories would break down to us they would tell us about their injuries and they couldn't go to doctors they couldn't be treated because they knew what would happen so they had to keep it secret but it's those beatings that that really it's still seared into their planes now they can't get rid of those images those nightmares there is a lot of suspense in this tale but it's it's not fiction I mean this is this is a real life accounting of how the church destroyed these lives but you're you're so specific I mean it reads like fiction though you could you've you're recreating dialogue how did you do that we tried to talk to as many people as we could about any particular incident that we wanted to write about let's not often interviewed him together multiple times over a period of five years really we look for please reports department social services child welfare investigation documents we have recordings from inside the church videos so we just tried to to use all the resources that we could find to tell this story in the most compelling way that we could several lawsuits have been brought against the church and its members over the years has anyone been held accountable for the abuse there are five people currently charged with assaulting a former member of the church Matthew Fenner he says that he was beaten to expel his homosexual demons back in two thousand thirteen but so far nobody's been convicted in that case and Matthew fenders waiting for justice the fact that you have the sheriff you have the district attorney all these people who have looked the
