Don't give everything away here but but I would say that you got developed a relationship over time but yeah, like many long standing in good fun relationships. This one started a little sketchy. We we came. We covered a lot of ground I will say all m from him being wrong. And me trying to correct him. Right. His version of the story is going to be much different than that. Yeah I'm looking forward to. Good man good man. He's a he. He will He will be entertaining for sure. We've got ask rain drinks anything and we'll get to the Toronto Maple leafs and kind of Peru's Canada in headlines as well. But there's a lot of attention that people want us to spend on the maple leafs in post mortem. So we've got some of that coming up in ask Ray and dregs anything I'd be remiss I mean you look relaxed look comfortable. You almost look guy who's been camping for three four days and you'll were. How did it go? Did you enjoyed have a good time with the foul I think this is the fourth year for us and Cami had always been. I WANNA go camping I wanNA, go camping, and she's from Chicago. She's never camped in her life, but we have some friends that go quite frequently and they said, hey, why don't you common? We went as as a group. been. Four years in a row. I love IT I. I think it's awesome I mean I. Don't know what you're supposed to do when you can't we do a lot of nothing. and. Moore at the beach or ride our bikes or whatever I I really like it so. I I picked her you and Cami and the kids and the two families camping, and in my mind I'm thinking of like a sixty eight foot. With you know a king size bed and a couple of bathrooms satellite TV because I've traveled enough with you and I've I've been to a few world championships with you where you always have the best suite in the hotel you were away it is. We were an air herring for how long he'll months. My Room. If you put the if it was one of those old fashioned doors where you put the key in, it would broke the window on the other side. That's how big my room wants. This little shoebox for six weeks anyway. No, we can't. We're we're GONNA tent. We got blow up mattresses Yeah. That's it. Now if we had one of those big. Wheel delays you're talking about yeah. I wouldn't be able to drive the thing you the schedule and boy you'd be. You'd be willing that thing all well, never get backed into a spot. That's a fair point. So probably four or five years ago my family and I. Rented an RV to go visit my sister in Saskatchewan they've got a place. Fishing Lake. Like, yeah. Exactly Fishing League and we land in. Regina go up to pick this rental RV up and there's like an eighty mile per hour wind and I got it. Right? It's Wendy. What's what's the big deal until we got out on the highway and obviously there's not a lot of coverage. And this land yacht was. Blowing all over the road and I'm like it's going to take. We had to drive two hours and I felt like he was going to take eight hours because I go faster than like fifty miles per hour because the wind was going to blow us off throat like by my wife and kids are getting seasick a hot. Army, we had to stop a couple of dimes because it was like going all over the place. So see I'd be free out if that happened is that right? Oh. Yeah. We will but I'm not getting one of those big land yacht you're talking about I can't park it. I'd have to keep driving. I'd be like Chevy Chase in European vacation just kept driving around. You always put yourself in a position where you're going forward. So if you have to stop for groceries, you go the furthest part of the parking. Lot Right. So you don't have tobacco anywhere and it's always directed to the the accent too. You know. So there you go. There's your tip. Tip for the day like it never use the washroom either because I was terrified of actually having to release the valves and how many have we seen over the years? Swear you release that valve but it it doesn't work out. So well, forty nine no, no. Good. We didn't do that. Well, I'm.
The Meal Prep
"Hey everyone. It's me Lisa. Lillian also known as hungry girl I am here for another episode of Chew. The right thing with my good pals and Co workers and BFF's Mikey and Jamie Hey guys. Hello Lisa, how are you? Good. We missed you last week and we missed you last week. I mean. By we I mean me. Yeah, we were podcast last week. We had a busy crazy week. And we took a little time off I. Hope People Forgave US was anybody said Did, they even notice Regina Regina might have been sad. All Sir number. One. Fan Regina's GonNa love that shout but I'm really happy to be back. I have to say like this week's episode is so good. It's one of those episodes that we have been toying around with for a while and the requests for have just been pouring pouring pouring pouring in. So this is I like to call it the meal prep assode get it. Because it's a meal prep episode so it's the meal prep assode. And meal prepping is so hot right now and we are going to dive into. So much of what people can do to make their lives easier were answering fan questions. Is it weird to call them fans? No. It's all right. We're friends and FRENEMIES. From our hungry girl peeps and I am super excited. Are you like I know you're a big meal pepper? Yeah, I'm excited Oh good Mike you. I'm the meal prep or the family for the most part but what do you do like just like lineup jars of peanut butter is that how you meal prep much that's about. Ninety eight percent of the work is July up the jars. And the rest is knives. You have the smaller I the bigger nine for the chunky peanut butter I know. Exactly All Right Mike. I'm sorry I'm sorry for giving you a hard time time giving you a hard time and now you're going to give us. Who does sit like were there's right. Everybody Likes Workers Right Yeah Oh yeah. Okay. So they have new flavors coming out this fall. Are you ready to hear what they are share? Okay. So we got pumpkin spice, Caramel, apple and cinnamon cream, and this makes me extremely happy because I don't have the patience for hard candy. So they're going to be available in the soft choose which means. Less, work for me. Less work no, it's more work you have to get that. Out of your teeth. Yeah. That's true. Good Point. Good point I didn't do. They have soft candy now I think. So I think the don't you. I only know like workers, my grandmother who was like the cutest human being alive was obsessed with warriors and when I was young living in New York, I would drive to us every Sunday and I bring her a bag of workers and we would enjoy them. I love them and I was like looking forward to these I will try them but I didn't realize they were. Chewy. Bet really good though. Maybe, put him on top of like ice cream or something I don't know what? The not be really hard to eat. They'll be in Mike have you met us? Does that really sound like something we would do probably not something I would. Maybe. A. Well I have your weekend plans already for you. Are you ready? You know what you're going to be doing this weekend Lisa. Tell me tie dye with wine. Okay. This is the newest craze I guess in with people who are still in quarantine. So basically, what you do is you use wine as the is the die and you make tidy shirts with wine. I can link to a website on our food cast page. They'll show you how to do it. The only thing I would suggest is use a cheap bottle. You don't WanNA use like a forty dollar bottle of wine to make touch short. So get like two buck chuck at Traderjoes what about if you only use like? The white wine what if I only like Chardonnay and the House without worrying. Pattern. Do Tie I. Don't know I've been tie-dying Teen I. Think I've. I've dyed like six or. Items Minimum I made my sister birthday tie-dye pants. I've made I've taken a lot of my vintage t shirts I'm GonNa, try this I. think it sounds it sounds really fun and the best part is like if I do open a bottle of wine a very rarely finish it. So it's something to do with the wine the extra red wine that's just been sitting in your fridge. If you get thirsty, you can like ring out the extra into your mouth. As long as it's clean shirt. That's all I got. Okay. Well so let's get into the subject of the day. Subject of the day is meal prep and you know I personally like I always say I'm kind of uncoordinated in the kitchen I don't think of myself. I was like I'm a meal prep or do I have the patience to sit and prepare things and put them in cute little containers and I was thinking no, that's not very me. But when I thought about it further I was. Like that is not really what the definition of meal prepping is to me and to US Jamie and we've had this conversation philosophically. It's really anything that you can do to make your life easier when it comes to thinking about what foods you're going to be eating for the week, right? Yes. It is preparing for your meals, not necessarily just preparing meals exactly, and especially you know during this time when we are home a lot more we may or may not be. Getting takeout or bringing in food a lot of our food is being made by us like it's now is the best time ever to start thinking about what you can do to make your life easier. So you don't fall back and make that phone, call an order that pizza in or just grab something that you might not be happy that you ate afterwards. So the best thing you can do is really thinking advance about what you can keep on hand how you can. Either prepare it or how you will prepare it, and so you're ready for anything. It's

"Personal essays. It's about how you donated a kidney to your father in 2009 when your father was living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I've asked myself what I do in a situation like that, and I I don't know. Did did. Did he ask you or did you just volunteer? I volunteered initially, but he rejected it initially assumed as he told us that he was on dialysis and needed a kidney transplant. I I said to him, I volunteer kidney to you. Please. Andi, he said no that he wanted to. He wanted to explore other Other options. Hey, even explored buying one at one point in time because my dad lives in Saudi Arabia, and I believe that there's a pretty booming organ market in those kinds of places and I think he looked into it decided it was pretty gruesome and that he didn't ultimately want to do it. And so eventually he came, Tio. My brothers and I asked if we would be willing to donate and my brothers both have families and jobs that they need to be present for, and I. Luckily I didn't have a family. Andi had a job that allowed me to travel and I didn't have to go to an office every day to do so. I I was the best match and I went to Saudi Arabia for about 3.5 months. And went through with the donation. What's it like to see your father? And I know that non only Did he co create you? But you live inside of him. Yeah, it's well. It felt like I was giving back. It felt like that was why it wasn't really a question. That's why I volunteered immediately is because it felt like he'd given me life. He had supported me my entire life. And so it felt like This organ was partly hiss. This kidney was partly hiss. And so I was happy to give it. I think that you know been no real repercussions. Repercussions for me afterwards. The consequences are minimal.

Human beings are asked to perform. And, you know, reading that now. During the covert pandemic. I think that just has a very special resonance now.

How vulnerable you do or don't feel Yeah. I mean, I feel incredibly grateful. I have been employed, doing a job that I enjoy.

This isn't an easy time to celebrate because of the general mood, but also because how you're going to celebrate. You can't go out to a restaurant. You can't go up to the bar. You can have a party. S so how did you celebrate the nomination? And what is this ceremony going to be like? I had some champagne and was in bed by 9 30 That was the celebration was minimal. I got some handsome, very nice gifts and cards from people, but I have no idea that the how the actual event is going to go. Apparently, I think it's going to be somehow I think via zoom. I think that there may be cameras in people's homes. I don't think that applies to writers because I don't think anybody cares about C C writers. I think people want to see Regina King and her leg beautiful gown. A cz. Well, they should, but so, so I don't know if if me and the fellow writer is going to get much screen time, so, but you know, that's fine.

"regina" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"We are back you're listening to. It's been a minute from NPR I'm Sam Sanders. This week on the show, we are revisiting my chat with Actress Regina King From Twenty Nine, thousand nine we spoke about her late show watchman on HBO. Last week. We all found out that Regina Cain up for an emmy for her performance on that show Congrats Regina. So the show. Watchmen give me your elevator pitch in thirty seconds and I'll come. First of all, this is an elevator pitch if you're on a local elevator in the empire state building. So it is a show that comes from source material comic. Comic Books, it uses the source material as if it's the Bible, it is the Bible of this alternate universe, and in this alternate universe we have picked up for those who are fans of the book. We've picked up thirty years from when that book Okay, and we are while like that book dealt with the threat of Cold War. In this story, our biggest fear is. Racism and policing. Sounds like my life. Yes. You know and I mean, I thought that was so smart for Damon to choose as that backdrop imminent fear. Also. The show is like a Gumbo of genres. So you have. Fi you have romance. You have humor You have real historic events that will be happening. Open is the Tulsa race riot. Yes. Given history to. Yes. And that's one of the things that I thought when I first read the script out. Mike Oh. My God. Your character in this show I want to describe it accurately you in this layer. So the character. Known character is a former police officer. I? Think we can say the she's a police officer, but she is operating on the cover as police officer because a certain series of events have taken place that has led the police department in Tulsa to. Police in a way that their identities are hidden so that you all these officer wearing masks. Yes. On patrol patrol. Already. And then the detectives their uniform if you will is individual to ev not one detectives whereas whereas the same thing So Angela a bar is who I play to me, she kind of represents all of us. In the way I say that. Because in the first episode. You get to see three different masks, Ya. Know, and that's of how we move in real life. You know who we are at the family reunion is different than who we are at home with the immediate family et then who we are at work. You know. So we're always constantly. Changing masks and sometimes we get confused on which one we should have on us. Through Angela, we kind of explore all of that. Through Angela through story. So this show that is asking us to grapple with the questions about policing, but in way where everything's flipped on its head, the racial hierarchy seemed to David be flipped relationship between cops and civilians seems to be flipped. When you think about using a show like that to get it these big central questions of American Life. Does it work better or differently than show that has perhaps more. What we see every day, you've done other shows about raising policing that seem specifically of this moment. From our lives. This is a show with questions about policing and crime and race, but it is set in the world that feels very much. Not This Swan. How do you think about the way that those shows make us ask those questions or answer them when one is that in this world and one is not right. That's a great question because I'm just thinking about just myself as an audience member that I do feel like I receive things that are provocative or that makes me WanNa talk about them later. When? There's humor involved. So I guess this is very similar in that way. Like for example I saw a slave play. Okay, we. Need, I've been hearing. May Look. That's a perfect example of what you know I'm talking about. The. And similar to watchmen in a way. The like I don't no one knows they're going in not knowing what to expect. I don't want people to I don't WanNa say, I, hope that you feel this, I, want you to walk out of there or come off your couch. Take it in and just be honest about what you feel. You know and and that's really. The best we can do as an artist. You know having the opportunity to contribute to a conversation to force the viewer to be honest about what they're feeling. Yes. Yeah. A theme in your recent work that I've noticed. You deal with notions of the police state and crime and race and policing I'm guessing you taking rolls over time that speak to that is.
"regina" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"Hey you're listening to, it's been a minute from NPR I'm Sam Sanders. And we'RE GONNA. Mix things up for this show. We're taking a much needed break this week, but we still want to leave something. Good. So. Instead of our usual wrap of the week's News, we're going to revisit my chat with Actress Regina, King from last year. Regina Kane has been in the business since she was thirteen way back in the day, you may recall her role as Brenda Jenkins on the classic NBC Sitcom to seven. After that, she just kept on working John, singleton movies like boys in the hood and Poetic Justice other movies like ray consistent. TV, work and voiceovers shows like the boondocks. McCain has stayed busy and kept making good stuff and now decades into her career. The Industry is giving Regina Cain the accolades many things she should have been receiving along. She won two Emmys for her work on the ABC, drama American Crime and twenty. Fifteen and twenty sixteen and last year. She won an Oscar for her performance in the Jenkins film if Bill Street could talk. And just last week Regina was nominated for an emmy for her work on HBO's watchmen. This is the show it's inspired by the graphic novel of the same name where superheroes and vigilantes are outlawed. This show deals with issues of race and policing a lot of things that we were talking about when this interview originally aired and we're talking about those things even more. So today. But with these topics, the show does this thing where flips traditional notions of race and class policing on its head to make its point. In. This Chat Regina and I talk about watchmen and why she gravitates towards work that consistently deals with racial bias and she tells me how she state centered and grounded when the Internet would have her be anything but. Anyway. We begin the interview at NPR. West Yeah back when we could be at the office and being the same studio together. What time? Regina was hunter her fallen off, and we talked about push notifications mostly. How much dislike them? I. Mean it's like Ding for things like pinterest. Exactly. What? They're all off and they've been all offer years. Yes. Yeah. You have to do. It's just like it'll suck you in. It feels like one. These things have short attention spans one hundred percent to there's just so much random stuff on the Internet to get sucked in. Get sucked in. I'm really trying to be better at looking at social media looking at your fee and not having a visceral reaction to something. I Have Not mastered it yet because they've managed to. Pop in like tweets or something instagram posts from things people, you don't follow you and thank you should not care about did not care about or that I get in my feelings like. Why is there etional? No Pancake? Day. Why. Are we doing? Why are we doing this? Why? Why? Why are we doing this? But then you've also Google National Cake Day. What's the most popular? Yes. pancakes come from and then on the flip side I understand national. Tequila Day. So what does that about me? thinking. Big Picture about that. This internet media landscape. Is it harder as someone who makes TV or movies? To get the attention, you want these days because when you're making two two seven back in the day, you one of a handful of networks. They got a good time slot. You are watched. Yes, and now you are not just putting TV on the TV. You're putting TV into the Internet world's full of distraction and you are trying to be someone's International Pancake Day Jackie I'm trying to be number one trending thing. Yes. Yes. Yeah. It is difficult and it's difficult to be okay in my spirit about that. You know that that's that's the thing that I find myself You know that's the tug within me like I feel like, yes, I need to understand that we are in a different day and age. This is the time where social media is what you use to. Promote your project or a cause or whatever. But the reality is I'm not really consistent, and what I do notice is you know you have to be on their. Feeding it so that you can break through off National Pancake Day and everything else. Yeah. You know. But also it's like you are an actress I and I'm guessing you want to spend more time on the craft than yet, but I got gotTa tell you. I'm so impressed with those artists that are able to be on there like all the time in posting every single day several times a day managed to be really great at their craft I. Don't think I'll ever be good at that in what I will say is I'm okay with that. I have gotten to that. That I'm okay. But you know what you do have. Yeah. Skirt. So. Like there is also this kind of thing we're like. It is interesting to see. You in this moment, making the stuff that you're making because as someone who's been a fan of been watching you for a while it feels like something in the last two, three, four years you are functioning in your careers functioning like on all cylinders Does it feel it? Feels, it does feel that way I feel like they're they're of experiences have taken place to lead to this moment as with anyone's life. But I think I've been very good at Learning from my mistakes, you know not Repeating them. a growing from my mistakes or or just circumstances that have taken place. And I do feel like I, move with more confidence. Now, you know and especially in the past you know seven eight years. I think being a mother had a lot to do with Getting me to that space without actually thinking about it without timelessly. Because? I. Have another life been responsible for. N. That's like the number one priority and and the reality of because I'm my son is an only child. Okay. So the reality that not only is he an only child I'm an only mom I'm. So I'm learning justice, he were growing together and growing together in learning. Through his is. allowed. Me To think in. A more selfless way or also you have less time to get caught up with the pet with. Yeah. Exactly. In in thinking of like gain that confidence being a little better, just being you in this world in your craft. It almost feels like you would not have been ready for a role like the watchmen a few years ago. I wouldn't have been ready for a lot of things. You know like a lot of people ask me. First of all I believe that I love the saying that a we make plans in God lash. There, they. Get. True. And netflix comedy special. Telling you. Yes. And thank God, you can look at it. Thank you guys. You know. I'll have people ask me you know. Do you feel like? You were you should have been recognized here should have.
Ballot blocks: the squeeze on Hong Kong
"The squeeze on political freedoms in Hong Kong is ramping up and fast. On Friday, the territory's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced September's planned elections would be postponed for a year and poss- sediments. I've always had to make difficult decisions but then the announcement I have to make today is the most difficult decision that I have to make in the. Insisted, the delay was only to avoid the spread of COPA, nineteen. The decision to postpone them the training train t electrical election has nothing to do with politics has nothing to do with a likely outcome of this round of. PRO-DEMOCRACY PARTIES, AD HOC for success in the poll riding a wave of discontent at Beijing's recent imposition of sweeping national security law. The legislation broadly defines and harshly punishes subversion sedition collusion with foreigners. Nathan law one of Hong Kong's most prominent pro-democracy activists recently spoke with our sister podcast economists asks why? Phones. Movement is still really strong though there have been protests against the new law. The millions of people who wants surged onto the streets have largely stayed home is police have cracked down harder just try to imagine if you live. In a country place that that is no freedom of expression freedom of them fraiche ethan freedom of thoughts. Then definitely, like protests does not exist or will be lushly quashed earlier last week, twelve pro-democracy candidates were banned from running whenever the elections happened. On Saturday, on Kong's police issued arrest warrants for six political activists living in exile in the West. Since the promulgation of the national security nor on July the first of the scope for political expression has been very much. Dominic Ziegler writes Banyan, our call him on Asian affairs. And because of that, there haven't been any street protests. of any size since July the first because of the consequences. For those taking part. But nevertheless, there has been widespread concern about postponing the election by a year, the Bar Association, representing senior barristers and other lawyers in the territory has expressed what it called grave concern and it said that a decision to postpone September's elections for the Legislative Council, which is known as Mexico was undermining a vital constitutional rights and so what does that mean in practice? What happens with the sitting lawmakers? There are all sorts of implications about what it. Means in practice because hitherto Hong Nor has been very clear you have to hold elections for this quasi-democratic legislature every four years. So the government of Kerry lamb, the chief executive is in a bit of a pickle about how it justifies this. Although she said, it was for reasons of the pandemic several other jurisdictions have been able to carry out elections, and that includes recently elections. In Singapore, there are certainly suspicions that the decision was taken not because of. The pandemic, but because Democrats had a good chance in fact. Gaining for the first time a majority in this rather gerrymandered council and indeed even obstructing a government policy or criticizing the government has it has been suggested by the authorities the risk of falling foul of the new. National Security Law. So this decision is absolutely shot through with politics, but nevertheless to take some finessing by the government. To show that the move is legitimate, the chances are that how it will manage that is to get a ruling from on high from Beijing saying that this is the appropriate course and it's worth bearing in mind that Beijing has always since Hong Kong's return to China. Has Always had the authority to intervene in Hong Kong's has the understanding would be that this would happen only rarely. But in the last few weeks, we've seen it happening time and time again, I think this is going to be the practice for the future. But what about the the the candidates who were banned from running here is, is there a risk that that Beijing will start to essentially stack the LegCo with with loyalists there in this interim year? This certainly is a risk Jason the bear in mind that all the moves around legend. have been made in order to ensure that the pro democratic camp does not secure a majority in the legislature. Now early last week, the authorities did this by disqualifying a dozen also candidates caming that even for criticizing the National Security Law that gave the government grounds for not allowing them to run. Now, a few dozen candidates actually sit in the current Legislative Council. So one big question that the authorities have to find an answer to is whether those four legislators continue to sit in a council session is is now being extended by a year. The chances are that the government will find means to disqualify. Those four and Beijing's moves go further than that. Recently, they're speaking of arresting pro-democracy activists outside of the territory, which is also unusual. That's right has happened in the past week on July the twenty ninth four students were detained for supposedly inciting secession. This seems to have had something to do with facebook page and shortly after became clear that the police had put on a wanted list, a number of activists who are currently in exile. So, there is an example for instance of how China intends for this new national security in order have jurisdiction beyond the borders of the country itself. These people were in the United States, the UK and elsewhere. One of them was not even a Hong Kong citizen better taken up US citizenship and so as as Beijing's hands gets heavier in Hong Kong Antoine Indeed all over the world. How are people coping normal life goes on so far as both the virus and the new political restrictions allow what is certainly happened is that the street protests that so colored and royal the territory last year are now very much a thing of the past. So the act the concerned the worry that. Has. Taken hold in the territory is one that is not always voiced publicly but in private conversations and the concerns really are about Hong Kong's long-term future. One of the possibility is certainly that many people discussing is immigration and a number of countries have. Roots towards long term permanent residency or even citizenship. Those countries include the United Kingdom Australia Canada, the United States. But many people are not in a position to leave immediately. But what happens now with all of the momentum that was behind the protesters but this whole movement now that protests themselves have died down to the protesters are moving abroad. What happens now it looks like well, over half of Hong Kong's population is in favor of democratic change but the possibilities for that through politics and through the ballot box have been very sharply restricted in in recent weeks. So there's a conversation emerging. About what form opposition should take? So people are starting to draw parallels with the Eastern European bloc during the Soviet era too many people here the national security nor is starting to look like the Ray quick building of the Berlin Wall in the early nineteen sixties and people are drawing comparisons with opposition in the decades following that in eastern Europe and that opposition took perform of underground dissident, it took the form of dissident writers and The church played a big role in eastern. Europe. Some hope that it may do here in Hong Kong one positive sign has been taken from last year's protests is an extraordinary. Creativity in in the form of protest art in the form of.

America's recent protests against racism and police brutality have drawn much interest in the Middle East. Some people have reacted with shock some with Schadenfreude. For others though America's unrest was an opportunity to discuss the problems with race in their own countries. Most Arab states have a black minority, each of which faces its own discrimination. The worst treatment though is reserved for migrants. There is a scene that played out almost every day for weeks for months outside of the Ethiopian embassy here in Beirut he would see cars pull up and drop off their passengers if the OB and women who were carrying their possessions and suitcases are in bags. Great girls from is our Middle East correspondent based in Lebanon these weren't women catching plane or catching a train. They had nowhere to go actually word maids, domestic workers whose employers. Could no longer afford to pay them because of the economic crisis here in Lebanon also couldn't send them home because the airport was largely closed because of covid one, thousand, nine, hundred, and so they dump them off outside the embassy they simply left them there to be someone else's problem. You would meet women who said they'd been sitting there on the curb for days on end using their bags as pillows simply left the fend for themselves. And isn't that kind of a general comment on how Lebanon treats migrant domestic workers? It is even before cove in nineteen. Before the economic crisis, there was widespread racism and harsh treatment of migrant workers here there are a number of cases where Lebanese have advertised their maids on facebook as if they were property, there was a post back in April that offered a Nigerian made who was described as being very active and very clean and she. was being sold for one and a half million Lebanese pounds, which is worth about a thousand dollars at the official exchange rates. There was also a clip that was circulated widely here in Lebanon in June it was from a television channel in Ghana that covered the return of two hundred or so Ghanaian citizens from Lebanon most of them. One, hundred, eighty of them were women working as domestic workers here, and they described horrendous conditions and treatments. Fit. After that sexual harassment. They bit s like animals. I have videos of this. I went through in that country and they also warned other people not to follow them to Lebanon not to come here to work. No. Doubt Music and go back to Lebanon is not a country that we should be. How does this situation come about? Where for instance, an people find themselves trapped with arguably abusive employers often starts with unscrupulous recruiters are agents migrants who come here to other countries in the middle. East. Are often promised good salaries, respectful working conditions and they arrive and find out that it's anything. But but then they find themselves trapped for two reasons. One is they often have to take out loans to pay fees to these recruiters and the loans can run thousand dollars two. Thousand dollars which when you're making only a few hundred dollars a month and you're trying to send much of that to your families back home it can take many months if not years to pay off those loans. So they find themselves trapped by debt. They also find themselves trapped by something called the Catholic system, which again exists here in Lebanon and many other countries in the Middle East whereby migrant workers are bound to their field or their sponsor, and so they can't simply. Changed jobs because their residency in their work permit is connected to their sponsor, and if they leave that job, they have to leave the country. So you meet migrants who say despite the awful conditions they're making more money here than they would make back home, and so they're willing to they're forced to continue to put up with US conditions because they're blocked from finding another job, and so all of this is a function of how the Lebanese feel about migrants or is this. Strictly a racial thing. It's hard to separate the two because almost all of the migrants here are either from east and South Asia or from Africa. So it's often connected to race as well as their status being migrant workers but the racism here it cuts across socio-economic lines I spoke with a black diplomat too says been pursued through upscale shopping malls Lebanon by security guards thought she was a housekeeper and they wanted to know why she was shopping without her madame without her employer. So Racist, certainly a problem here and in other countries around the Middle East and not only when it comes to migrants states across the Arab world have black minorities. You have Egypt for example, the Nubians who have been there for thousands of years you have in the Levant and the Gulf states black communities that are often the descendants of slaves taken by Islamic empires or the descendents of African Muslims who made pilgrimages to places like Saudi Arabia and decided to stay again, those communities face various kinds of commission as well. Would you mean by that? Will you hear some of it? Simply in the language that people use darker skinned people referred to with terms like opt, which means slave Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt darker skin than his predecessor was sometimes referred to as his predecessors black poodle you turn on the television in the Middle East and black face is fairly common sight on Arabic language television and no doubt that kind of racism manifests in in everyday life in lots of ways, it does you see it in areas of life. March choice of partner you have families that will see skin color as a marker for Associate Comic Status Lighter skinned people seen as being wealthier and more educated. You see it in the workplace as well in Iraq, for example, where there's a black community that has been there for at least a thousand years they to this day struggle to obtain government jobs and they're often relegated to doing menial work and living on the outskirts of society. You see it as well in the Gulf states where there's almost a racial hierarchy to employment. If you walk into a Nice Hotel and the Gulf you might see black migrants from Africa working as security guards or as porters. You will see them far less often in jobs that require interaction with customers. Waiters hairdressers, things like that those jobs which are better paid than less taxing often go to lighter skinned workers from Asia or from Arab countries I mean racism has been very much on the agenda over the past few months because of the the killing of George Floyd protests that erupted across the world did that wave of protests hit the Arab world as well? The protests themselves. Didn't reach the Arab world. This is a region fortunately protest often a criminal offence of we didn't see much in the way in street demonstrations either in solidarity or around the region's own issues with racism but it has certainly escalated the conversation that's taking place both online and offline. There was a video that circulated quite widely earlier this summer was shot by a Palestinian actress condit's. Who recounted some of the just casual bigotry that she's heard and day-today Life Semis Ben Aston Headache. Mariam. People often argue that it's harmless. It's just words. And allow. Them. One of the points that she was trying to make in this video is that it does hurt people and that it does have an influence not only on the targets of it but on societies broader attitude towards Black Arabs, and do you think having these kinds of discussions on social media and the like will make much of a difference? Is it enough having a conversation about these? Things is certainly better than nothing. But one thing that we've seen certainly in America through years and years and years of protests against racism and police brutality is that just having a conversation doesn't actually bring political change or social change. That's something that takes a long time and it also takes concerted effort in politics and education, and unfortunately one of the problems in countries across this region. Is that there are few avenues to do that, and so it's good to have a conversation about these things but. The ways that you actually go about making concrete change. Unfortunately, those ways are often blocked in the middle. East. Thanks very much for joining US greg.

She's join us on the podcast before twice most recently as a panelist on mentally yours live today. We're going to be talk about her new book sway. So you're joining us today to about a new book, Sway. What made you decide to write this? It's been. Longtime coming it was a combination of academic research I, did which was all about bias and technologies had been thinking about bias, and whose views represented and all the whole notion of power and hierarchy in data and I was working Lawton mapping technologies during my phd now so did that, but then also combination of my personal. Experiences as a woman as a woman of color as a woman in jammed the first IMMU lecture woman lecture appointment in appointed in a engineering department talk, leading engineers wideman the UK just navigating these spaces where you feel like. Sometimes you don't fit in you belong and then you kind of feel like you're part of the two words being almost British, but not quite Indiana, and all those kind of things and racially profiled at some point, having to talk to my twitter about race, but also sexism and misogyny all those things that the expediency your life, but that combined with my academic interest and research interests will interdisciplinary notional. What does bias and how it effects society kind of came together announcer allies that he below talking about a lot about unconscious bias in his working. Working with a number of organizations on diversity and inclusivity for a couple of years, and I was writing about it, but then it kind of was becoming like a trendy word, and people were just using it as a buzzword without really knowing what it means, and so I thought that really needed to know and do a deep dive into were Liamine unconscious by stuff in Detroit me a big crested by the o'briens. Worth is actually breaking down what it is. Yeah, it is a big question, and that's what the whole book is about. But in in brief, an Indus very simplistically, speaking is just biases within us those kind of 'em. Affect Us, our decisions and our judgments people on our interactions. which we sometimes are not aware of or reduced voice them or we don't realize them so so there are some explicit references like I would see I refer such vise, screen, or certain studio very explicit, but then when it comes to certain kind of. Implicit things that we have a template brain that are dependent on things we've learned to live these kinds of learned behaviors, but We don't know often that these are affecting the way of behaving and the decision making so those are our unconscious bias, and how can the book out people to understand their own personal biases and prejudices do what I really wanted to do. In a book is Great. This kind of non-judgmental, very non Peachy, and so a couple of people who read the book like Endless Sania indicate shook line, and and they also said that it's a very non-policy kind of non preachy attitude to to bias because people can get very defensive when you start talking to them or devices, and so I didn't really want to. Stand on my soapbox and talk about it, but in the way that I brought in research and facts and evidence, what functional stories also and combined a lot of different disciplines slowly and enter and kind of innovating accessible manner, I hope that s even region they become more aware of how these vices effect. Decisions and instructions in a way that sometimes we not one, but then it helps them gives them a space to actually start reflecting on, get on buses, and this is what people all the readers were reading. Are telling me that they hadn't you convey lie some things that they come across in the book and they are really becoming a Morterero. The kind of prejudices the might carry without them realizing it things they've learned and also wanted to talk more about not just the racism and sexism, but also Regina biases that you can talk about, but also other kinds of biases, helmeted biases like hindsight bias st to scope is in how we interpret information on how politics autism politics affects our view of the world, and on ageism and accents and also big areas. Technology in bias, really wanted to talk to all these things in we by bringing in as many.

Regina A. Mason: Searching for William E. Grimes
"Jimmy Mason is a remarkable woman. She spent fifteen years of a life researching alive for great great. Great Grandfather William Grimes with nothing to go on the connection to the underground railroad. She spent countless hours in libraries reading books. Looking at Michael Film and Census Records Grind was changes. Oh when he was sold away from the arms of grieving mother to a far plantation hair grew up friendless and mother list apparently no surrogate slave family or loved ones to embrace him. No one even to look after him. Grimes was the first person to go through slavery in the South and write about it. This was the first time cousin. Slavery exposed onto the spectrum of one who had lived in and he was the first author to write about the harsh realities of the north. Despite the narrative of his big F- freedom land. Recently in Black America spoke with China rant to produce of Gina's journey the site for William Grimes and Regina e Mason on today's program. We conclude our conversation and so my co-producer contacted his agent his agency and they sent it over and to my astonishment he came back and was like I'll do it and it was more than a reasonable rate and which also made us faint and the next thing I was out in In Hollywood in in Melrose actually at his recording studio and and directing keep David in the booth which was mind blowing to say the least and he was astonished to see you know me and and and you know given my age and done and being an African American male to be directing this film so that that really made him happy when he saw that he just was was really blown away with it but he blessed the project came in. He did the most amazing work on it and it really just elevated genus story and Grind Story to a whole new level so we will be internally thankful to him for that and every once in a while I do have talks with them still. He's just a really good person and I think he's a studier of history. He's very big in the voice over world. He's an Emmy Award Winning Boys Actor. Who's done a ton of Ken? Burns documentaries so he was really into and this is his thing so I think he really enjoyed working on this project and we were better for Ms Mason ominously. This was labor intensive. This is way before Google and everything else. So what gave you that consistent drive to want wanting to complete this project William Grimes himself you know when you read his narrative all that. He endured life to the cruelty the abuse at every turn. He was reminded that he was nothing but he never bought into the status quo. In fact he defied the status quo. Every turn just the fact that he had the notion that he was capable of writing his own story without any assistance from white people speaks to who he was and how self assured he was so his example of perseverance and endurance gave me the will to to just carry on it. And see this per- This project to to the end and I'm speaking of the book project and I do have to say this once. I started digging into this story and realizing that no other scholars and really looked at it. In fact when I went looking for any body of research that was done on William Grimes it was so inaccurate and they were historians to just took liberty to to write about this man having not done any research whatsoever and then I came across the Work of Dr William L. Andrews scholar from UNC UNC Chapel Hill University of North Carolina Chapel Hill extraordinary expert on early African. American autobiography. I came across his book to tell of Free Story and he studies the slave narratives and included in his body of work which is sort of like the scholars Bible. Today he wrote about William Grimes not a whole lot more than I had found those about four pages of work and I needed to make sense of that genre of literature that I really knew nothing about so I reached out to him and he at the time was the only living collar who that who I could talk to and we sort of built a relationship every now and then I would send him information about what I found a William Grimes and he one day wrote me back and he says look the work you've done has to be preserved in some fashion or another then. He approached the idea of partnering to do a book. Because I knew that bill knew that I I wanted to bring this story to light this new scholarship that had never been done before on William grinds and he definitely was the right person because obviously he had studied grimes he had written about grinds and there was really no one else that I could associate myself with and he was the man when it came to early African American autobiography and so we partnered and We developed what we call all. What has been the authoritative edition of the life of William Grimes runaway slave? What was it like your feelings when you you read his narrative and then understood that your great great grandfather was just not an ordinary slave Well I WANNA say this William Grunt was an ordinary man. Who didn't extraordinary thing? I want to move to realize we may not have those narrative is out there. We may not be able to to. We can maybe able to find our ancestors who had been enslaved on In plantation records or slave inventories. And all you see our names sadly those voices we will never know their voice or their humanity because the story doesn't exist so to find this first person account of slavery and by the way we them grams. It's the first person of color to go through slavery in the south. Handle right about it so for the first time we got to hear about southern slavery from the perspective of the Sleigh and not from the slave owner himself so it's a different kind of storing. It's more authentic and true in terms of the experience so to recover this and then associate myself to this narrative. I realize that all of his virtues are inside of me so when you say William Grimes was not the ordinary slave he definitely speaks for those who didn't have a voice and I believe that. None of the slaves bought into the enslaved narrative that was supposed to be their destination and ultimately was their destination or a. Yes. I believe that they all had that will to be free. And and in their own circumstances they asserted whatever power they had in a rebellious way. And so to know though that William Grimes was able to make out of slavery and to tell his story is huge it is it's just incredibly empowering and I realized that again that his virtues existed me and he was my example every step of the way when I wanted to give up when I was faced with all kinds of closed doors I realized that he faced those same and he was told no over and over again but he found a way to get it done and so I I it brings me great. Pride that this enslaved man who never bought into the status quo live within

China Expels Three Wall Street Journal Reporters
"However tonight there is a twist on the reporting of the casualties and the doubts and the non transparency to twist is this headline in the Wall Street journal China expels three Wall Street journal reporters sub at China revoke the press credentials of three wallstreet journal report is based in Beijing the first time in the post now era that the Chinese government has expelled multiple journalists from one international news organization at the same time to help us understand this puzzle and also to look beyond this to the up to students of the reporting out of China these last weeks of the covert nineteen crisis we welcome Jonathan ward author of China's vision of victory Jonathan the expulsion of the newspaper reporters for a regime that is fussy about its world image does this make sense our it does this demonstrate in some fashion the brittleness of the Communist Party good evening to good evening John good evening court it's good to be well I think in reality this is an old piece of the playbook for great for Beijing not just the expulsion of journalists but the desire to control the narrative and if in doing this to countries with the think they have sufficient power to do so for quite a long time since the days of now say don't need done this with Indian media back in the days of the border what they're doing this in South Asia even today where you have investors from China telling individual newspaper editors of the call that they can't publish this or that bone China today they think they can do this to the United States and it's very similar I think to what they did with the NBA at the end of last year where the essentially said you can't say this you know tweeting about Hong Kong and then asking for an official in the NBA to be fired so this idea that China can intimidate or whether it's media entities are business entities on the shows I think if anything the confidence yeah China has today to state that it can control the narrative not only inside China but outside China because of course the Wall Street journal is beyond trying this person aware and so are you know many of the you know we'd in which we use media outside and they seek to influence all so a lot of this you know just sense to me you know one China's political system is to simply incompatible with that of the United States is incompatible with the modern world in China's power is growing far too great and that is what we will have to deal with going forward Jonathan you talk about confidence of the senior Chinese leaders at this another way so for instance right now those senior leaders face an existential crisis for themselves and for the regime and they need the help of for instance the United States and yet they're doing something that is just going to aggravate their image problems in Washington and elsewhere I would think that this is an instance of China lashing out doing something that is against its own interests and shows therefore that something is really wrong in Beijing what do you think of that theory and and how do you parse through it as you go forward I think we have to understand what China's leaders think that China's interests are this is a a nation state crews Regina has hearing did essentially it can unleash a billion people on the world and and come to rule the world because of that so they're very much in their own ideology when it comes to how to appeal power in the sense of what they've achieved in the last thirty years of their sentencing so you know the whole idea for great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation which is the central narrative of the Communist Party the idea that they will rule the world by the year twenty forty nine but the open road will be built made in China twenty twenty five will allow them to dominate every major industry these ideas have not gone away even with coronavirus on the other hand what you have is is a a real you know almost shut down slowdown in the Chinese economy in the first quarter of this year that I think is is is yes putting the pressure on and showing the world that our dependency on China is going to commit to great a price I mean all sorts of companies in the service on apple missed quarterly earnings and such and those that are really buying into the idea that China will continue to ascend okay never very tough decade going ahead because of China's confrontation with the United States yeah I I think that the sense of destiny the sense of the great because the nation that's held by the Communist Party and its core leadership bond is absolutely a very dangerous path for China because it leads to this confrontation with the world and that that needs to control essentially information even in a time of crisis Jonathan he maybe I'm out of touch maybe I don't see this but my sense is listening to what you're saying is that we're talking about a leadership in Beijing which is kind of view of the world which doesn't correspond to anything that we know because China right now does appear to be weak and I don't think that they got the position to be able to intimidate countries for very much longer because what we have seen during this crisis is the one victim the one real problem for Beijing is that it's lost its image of invulnerability so I would argue based on what you say that China's leaders are just themselves out of touch I think it depends on what the world does to come together against essentially to the rise of China at this point I mean look at what we in Britain this is causing huge problems for the US UK special relationship and look at China's economic ties in Southeast Asia and the way that that creates the difficulty I think for diplomacy in our ability to bring countries into a folder mean they're able to accomplish a great deal and it's still requires a concerted effort from the rest of the world I think to to say that China's ascendancy at this point cannot go too much further if they're going to have a regime like this I don't think the world has come together to do that yet but it's what must be done Johnson is there one explanation for why she didn't being didn't go to the center of the virus right away he simply could Chang why didn't why didn't she go there what it what is the thinking any leadership in the west would demand I mean some analysts have pointed out that this would be consistent with you know prior for instance now and and others that remaining in control of the crisis it involves you know being pulling back and working from behind the scenes and then sending simply another delegate out she has tried to cultivate an image of him as a man of the people but you know in this case it probably shows more than anything how dangerous this fire threatens dangerous yes but he is a puzzle did they have another way of looking at the world when the general doesn't lead he's not the general that's it you know I'm not being fancy here but she marching around in Beijing with a mask on was absurd well John do you know it's interesting that you say that because on social media in China many people were saying that seizure being was a coward and they contrasted him with what you mentioned the Primera Liga Chung actually going to move on talking to doctors in the hospital and they said see Jim being just stayed in Beijing and did a photo op yes Jonathan you know as well as I do that you the measure of the leader's how it does in crisis not how it does on a good day right that's true and I think we have yet to see with the with the real consequences are going to be in the Sunni could certainly be in a dangerous position it also could offer an opportunity for those who are against in circles of power to come together you know I'd love for term where does your garden well you know I I just don't see how they get out of this because they're lashing out and whatever friends they need they're alienated them very quickly yes I I you know we used to tease him as being looking like Winnie the Pooh but in that mask in Beijing he didn't look anything like Robert eight eight it looks like a well all right sign leave it alone Jonathan do you they were using the term Chernobyl for awhile of the clock is running if that's applicable do you believe explicable because the roof the clock says five years and they're gone that's what happens the Soviets is that a fair analogy we have about thirty seconds I think it depends on how well they're able to gain control of information and how effective the surveillance state that they built in you know centric social credit score and all the rest of it is I mean this is going to be a real catastrophe something to tolerate apparatus they built are they able to control connection message sufficiently to essentially roll over all the dissent that will come from this we will see Jonathan war he is the author most recently of China's vision of victory garden Chang of

The Business Behind The Color Of The Year
"Today's indicator is Nineteen Dash Forty fifty. Two that is the exact shade of Pantheon's official color of this year classic blue and it had a lot of competition. Pantalone has identified more than twenty three hundred colors. It print them out on its famous color chips in a factory in New Jersey. Pretty the people that work there have special vision tests that ensure their ability to expertly distinguish subtle differences in shade and tone. Laurie pressman is is the vice president of the Pan Tone Color Institute. She's worked there for twenty years. She's been there basically since Pinto unsorted picking out. Its colors at the year. She is a bona fide color expert. So I- astor astor. Radio and color is a color. I asked her to describe classic blue to somebody who could not see it so when we think about classic Blue Tanto One thousand nine hundred fifty two classic blue. If you think about the sky at dusk think about a blue that speaks to the end of the day. It has that that reassuring qualities that we associate with blue. The dependability the stability. Because it's something that we see every day and yet there's a little bit more color depth to it. There's a little bit of a a red undertone but please don't mistake this classic shade to be that Cardigan sweater or that university jacket. Because it's more more modern I was just GonNa say like Navy blue. Yeah I was just GonNa say that. That's a fascinating. Look into the mind of a color expert right. I mean I don't know anything about color As you know card if I were like black and gray basically every day I try to blend in with the pavement but as I was looking at this colored there was something striking about even to my untutored eye. And that was that you know the colors for the last few years have been very vibrant and lively and this one just isn't last caller was called living coral bright and lively In two thousand eighteen there was pretty lavender color your before that was this kind of Kermit. The Frog Green and then they came out with classic blue and I wanted to ask ask her about it because it just looked so kinda Blah yeah this blues like it doesn't seem that young to me. It seems a little Lake Doc. It's the color of my bank card. Now see okay and I say you have to go back to the red. And that's the really interesting I would say taint or undertone or influence to this color so I don't think of it as corporate you know this is not your IBM blue. That's not what this is. This is a really fresh and more vibrant blue so it has all those great things that we love about the blues. The reassurance the calm that we're looking for the confidence inspiring us to connect at the same time. There's an energy I don't know it looks like a bank card to me. Here's here's a sample of the color which Panta sent me so this is printed out on their printers and I am now putting my chase bank card right on top of it. And they're close. I think the chase bank blue is slightly darker but other than that distinct cards more vibrant. I think you're right and it's more metallic I don't know honestly when you I know. Pan Tone has turned and color precision into this multi million dollar business companies from all over the world in all kinds of industries. Actually pay pan tone to help them choose colors for their logos and their spring bring lines and their packaging and their products. Barbie Victoria's secret tiffany schweppes. They have all worked with Pan Tone to develop their signature color color. The year is supposed to be more of a cultural statement though. Panton collects data from all over the world to see what colors are being used and tries to think about why certain colors are becoming more popular. What what are you looking to to get that? It's really product what we're seeing in movies. It's art you know it. All the different materials we see coming through do all the different Focus on different travel destinations and once the color set everybody pays attention. That's according to Regina Blah's check. She is a professor of business history at the University of Leeds. And she's the author of the Color Revolution. She says hand tones color of the year becomes kind of celebrity within the industry. I think antone has made a color into a celebrity for this for this year. I think I think that's what it's about and much like celebrity. Classic blue has some high profile haters a lot of articles of come out saying Classic Lewis Boring and Corporate Regina's. Yes it is and it was really a brilliant choice my lean. Okay okay so I am so interested here because to me it just looks like my bank card like it is. That's what caught your bank card and I think that's the whole point is it. Looks like your bank card. It looks like the IBM I b. m. logo it looks like the binders that are lining up here in my office. It's very safe very safe and very secure and very very familiar. And I think what they're suggesting is that in this era of turmoil that we need to have there is a desire an underlying desire to move towards some stability and that Bankcard blue suggests that stability and it is bankcard blue that will be featured in a million million product meetings all over the world as clothing companies home decor companies carmakers hotels electronics makers and countless other businesses. Consider it in their buying decisions. Any business today Who is concerned with producing products for the consumer is concerned with with the latest color trends? If you're an Taylor or banana republics you WANNA be on trends you WANNA follow the trend and so and and what do you think uh of classic blood you like it. I think it's an interesting color. I like blue. I wear blue and green and pink. Because I'm blonde so works for me. Oh interesting saying okay Do you buy stuff and classic blue. I just bought a classic Blue Blazer. So I'm all set you did is it. And by the way Cardiff Panton does not just consider classic blue a color. It's a whole experience in ambience. They sent a box of like a handled handled. It's like the smell of classic blue and some Jelly that's the taste of classic blue and was also blue and grows Sorry and the feel of classical and they also have the sound of classic blue.

What I Learned by Being a Part of Taylor Swifts First $1 Million Dollar Month on eCommerce with Brendan Kane
"Brendan Learns By. Being a part of Taylor Swift's first million dollars a month on ecommerce with some incredible things that you you can learn more Brendan's learned over the years and first and foremost less talk about generating followers. I mean we are looking to create movements. We're we're looking to create this mission where people WANNA see. Our flag is planted in the C. N.. They want to follow us. They want to know that we stand for something and they wanNA stand by that. The thing with US end Brendan talked about how you generated one million followers in just thirty days sounds pretty insane. So really were that kind of stemmed from his. I spent fifteen years building brands. And helping you know big celebrities like a Taylor Swift's or an MTV or Riyan on building building platforms Promoting movies and listen was a great experience really enjoyed it but but it really seemed idea. My head is like take off a learning experience experience in a renewed I built in apply to somebody starting from scratch starting from zero because I would get asked that question all the time and I'm of the mindset that I want to actually try things I don't WanNa Irizar and talk I wanNA actually building create so when thinking about okay. Who would be the perfect person to run this experiment experiment on NC? What was possible? I thought why not myself because I had never been on television film. I'm not a professional athlete or a Rockstar. And that's that's where I set out on this journey to generate a million followers in thirty days. I did that task on facebook and have been building a separate set of methodologies and processes for instagram which I've been I've built it to be able to generate between one hundred twenty two hundred fifty thousand dollars a month and we're about to see if we can push that up to two hundred fifty thousand dollars a month but that's really kind of the mindset when methodology. Ah or the reason that I went on that path. How let's talk specifics? How did you do it in? What recommendations tips tools tactics would you give to our listeners today? Fire nation if they're looking adding to generate a significant number of followers in a short period of time as well. Yeah so I'll start with that question first and then I can dive into tips because I think it's really important important to understand the mindset behind this like why are you doing this. Why do you want to generate followers? What is your return on investment? Look like what is the end goal like so many people get into this and don't really understand why they're doing it and then when they actually get into it they realize how much work it is because because it's not just about generating their followers like generating followers. Sure we can help people get followers quick. But it's really what you do with them. It's the content behind it being able to connect with that audience in a meaningful away and foster relationship. So I think it's super critical to understand what your goals are what that return on. Investment looks like it doesn't necessarily have to be it direct attribution to revenue so in my case when I generate a million followers in thirty days it was to get a literary agent get a publishing deal and then speak around the world and then all AH generated attention to be on a press outlets like your amazing podcast. You know it just generates opportunities from there. So mine wasn't element of becoming coming influence or generate brand deals or sell our products. It was more of a back end approach to generating revenue because for some people. Like if you're an e commerce business or you're just trying to sell off I really wouldn't focus on followers in the beginning. Our focus on lead generation and Direct Response Marketing of Regina ad platforms to do that versus generating followers trying trying to sell them in terms of specific tips like the biggest thing that generate success excess both in generating powers generating engagement generating sales leads. Its content everything comes down to content. And if you're not good at it creating content you're not going to be successful. So what are the areas that we strive to be experts in one of the ways that we've got good at content content is really having a an agile approach to creating content not spending too much money in a specific direction until it's proven and then also testing content is testing content as much as possible to really learn an experiment because one of the biggest mistakes I see people make as they invest way too much in a specific direction. They don't look get any the analytics or data and they don't try and take the information and learnings to improve their content on a daily basis and a long term basis. So I exercise that I did in terms of generating a million dollars in three days on instagram or on facebook was leveraging the advertising platform as is a market research tool most people. Use It as a media buying tool or an advertising tool where they don't really realize the power behind it to be able to test content at scale you're where you can take one piece of content and tested one hundred or two hundred different ways to really understand what it takes to get somebody to perform specific action action and take those insights learnings to really fuel your short and long-term content strategy and with instagram. It's a bit different but what we do is we. We still test content and content actively we just. Don't use the ad platform to do that. We actually test content by syndicating out and other accounts and seeing what the effectiveness combat content is to drive traffic back and follow on my counter or clients accounts that we work with. So you know how to run social media like a celebrity A. You've done it for celebrities. You study celebrities and how they do it. The successes the failures the in betweens. Let's breakdown three ways that we as entrepreneurs this can run our social media lake a celebrity. Yeah I think that the first way is people often. I advise certain celebrities that are on on their way up and they look at like a Kim Kardashian or somebody that has hundred like one hundred million followers and understand how they acquire that it really comes down to distribution content. So you look at Kim Kardashian. She is on. She's on obviously very successful TV show. She's in magazine. She's she's on print. He's on billboards. She's on radio. All those things drive traffic back to her social channel so one of the biggest lessons that they always talk to people about is Gore. The traffic is don't try and create from scratch. Where is your audience? Currently what accounts do they it. Follow what blogs do they follow. What website today read? If you can get on podcast or radio or potentially televisions make a list of all the places the your audience currently exists in the euro strategic ways to get in front of those audiences how can you provide value to those accounts. Or how can you create compelling content onto those people wanna post and that's really how celebrities become celebrities or how rockstars become rockstars is they go where the distribution outlets outlets are they harnessed that traffic and drive it back one of the perfect startup. Examples of this of all time is youtube is how they got acquired for one point six billion alien dollars in less than two years two or three years and the way they did it as a basically funneled olive mice faces traffic back to their platform because at the time when Youtube was I created. My space. Didn't have video player so youtube created an embedded player that my space profiles could than are mice face users. A user could embed on their my space profile. And once everybody's friends saw that you had a youtube player you would just click that logo to their platform and create that embed code drive back so I think that. That's you know. One specific tactic that people can have a lot of success with in terms of the principles of of being a celebrity. And I think one of the important lessons is once you start to scale is. How can you build your brand for longevity because you don't want to be one of these? He's flaming stars that that peaks too soon and

Drugmakers, distributors said to face federal opioid probe
"How if at all could the law hold drug companies criminally accountable for the opioid crisis we may find out federal prosecutors have begun issuing subpoenas to drug companies we do not know for sure if the pro about of Brooklyn is pointing toward criminal charges we don't now but it raises the question of further jeopardy for an industry that is already faced a giant judgments in civil lawsuits Regina lebel we'll talk us through the facts and the law she's at Georgetown University Law Center here in Washington DC she directs Georgetown's addiction and public policy initiative and she knows about this topic because she was chief of staff of the office of national drug control policy under president Obama thanks for coming by this morning good morning so the US attorney's office is not saying what they're up to of course but six companies acknowledge they receive subpoenas what does that suggest to you well it certainly suggests there's a blank stance of criminal probe there have been other charges that have been brought in the state of Ohio and also in in other parts of New York against drug distributors so this is against distributors and manufacturers which makes it very extensive and we're not as you said we're not really sure what the results of this will be over a long period of time if this is as the distributors are saying merely an investigation to look at practices or if it could result in criminal charges being brought against some of the the the officials in these drug distribution companies it's good to take note of that suggestion that this might be smaller narrower than that it seems but suppose it is bigger suppose it does go that way what criminal laws could conceivably apply to people who were doing a perfectly legal business but maybe in a responsible way right so they're bringing these actions under the controlled substances act which is again how these cases have been brought in other parts of the country over the years the Drug Enforcement Administration has brought administrative actions against many of these same distributors where they have shown willful disregard for drug distribution practices we're so I'll give you an example in Kermit is a small town of four hundred people from two thousand and eight to two thousand eleven there were three point seven million units so doses of the opioid hydrocodone that were distributed to this little pharmacy in a town of four hundred in which state was not this was in West Virginia okay so that's an example of the type of kind of willful disregard for regulatory practices that they could be looking at in this case meaning you guys could look at the numbers and tell that something was happening here and that you were effectively drug dealers pretty much and what they're supposed to do in in best practices they're supposed to tell Drug Enforcement Administration Hey there's something going on here we're gonna take a look at this and work with you to regulate it but that it clearly that's the question here did that happen we've seen over a number of years that that isn't what happened and that's what that's what this could be about common sense would tell us that if millions of doses of drugs are being sold in a town of a few hundred that something odd is going on here but is there a law like specific law for which you could face criminal penalties because you failed to do something there right that's the controlled substances act that's what it does exactly and that law is written in a way that someone could go to jail executive our current executive could go to write right now of course the company's Johnson Johnson to give an example they've already faced huge civil judgments but they've said when it comes to monitoring the flow of drugs whatever they did complied with the law could there be a case to be made there certainly I mean so they they'll look at they'll have to have discovery the look at what what happened if you know if the compliance officers weren't really doing their job if they encourage people to to provide I'd more drugs to the small towns so they'll they'll they'll look at all of this during discovery given the companies are paying are being told to pay billions of dollars in civil settlements is there a point at which this becomes too much so I think from a policy perspective we want to do is make sure this doesn't happen again and will we reach that point when will we reach that point and I think that that's the question before us is incarcerating these directors of these corporations gonna make sure that we change the practices that lead us to this would you do that put somebody in jail I ate out my interest is in changing the policies and practices that got us to where we are today does that mean if that means jail time for someone you do it I think that that's a that's a larger issue my concern is changing marketing

I think I think it was a high school. My friend's father used to call me Regina Belle and now it's like this like the year the time of the religion and so it's a wonderful thing that's funny because I feel like the same unlike growing up never met any other Regina's and I guess I didn't embrace how unique unique that was.

Hey Regina spiked it shout out so today we're here for your December cover story your fourth essence cover this. This is the third time I've seen you in the third cities as I saw you in Atlanta and New York. Press Dunkin for watchmen. We're GONNA talk about this. Is Your Third Solo cover your fourth essence coverage as you did like a twentieth anniversary with a bunch of the ladies back in the day. Remember that all the different college I did. But so then there's more because did essence cover with Jamie Foxx in Carrie Washington us for rain. This year I'm wrong. Oh my God this is your fifth as your thought about that right now because when you were doing I was thinking about about the Jamie carry one and then white then when you said the one with the clean is Michael Michelle Shell. Yes telly bearing. Yeah I was like. Oh my God. The raiders. mind yet. That one was actually have that photo frame nine. Oh my God I have out one of the outtakes from that a photo shoot Jada 's Jason Senate who had just recently became Jada Pinkett Smith? I think it was only a couple of years or in and It's a photo with the cameras up above in. We're all looking up into the camera and it's that one of my favorite photos that have been my office. Yeah Yeah so along with your cover is now you are Angela. Abrar Weisman and your looming all over the city every city in this poster. I think I'm going to dress up as you. I may be the way I would love that. I told Damon would be Damon. Lindelof creator of watchmen series. I said if I just see one photo of someone dressed up as we won. You know 'cause we literally premier like eleven days before Halloween and so that posters everywhere. It's like so tell me about Angela. Abor our house. She came to be. Oh my Gosh If anyone anyone is familiar with Damon trajectory the comic book series. The graphic novel watchmen became part of his DNA. He ready it for the first time in his teens. And it truly Just inform the writer. He would be if you are a fan of loss if if you are a fan of leftovers then you know you see you have read. You've watched how he that that influenced his style all of rioting and he Turned down doing this series twice before where we are now. Because he's like there's there's no you can't you can't remake perfection A. Why would I do that this disrespectful then a finally on the third ask ask He said what if the credits are going up. On the watchmen series and my name is not up. How am I going to feel about that? And that was one of the Things pushed him towards doing it and then he said well give me pause to let me find what what it is and he found what it was by going back to the graphic novel You'd viewed red tunnel icy coats case for reparations. That had something to do with trying to fine. What is that looming thing of today? That the Cold War the threat of the Cold War played in watchmen the comic book series. So that's how we got here. And then how I became involved is as he was building it figuring Out with that story was he created it The story being centered around a black woman. He has this rule rule to never cast a person that he's worked with before and then another project Belong Sir Short. He broke that rule because because he felt that I was the right person to embody Angela a bar and he sent me the in Aden sent me. He had the script delivered for the pilot because it was such top secret and he wrote this lovely note saying this. Was this thing an minute. I didn't know about this. He doesn't cast someone in the next thing. Rule average decide He has me at. Hello the factor because my experience with him on leftovers leftovers was incredible and So yeah I I knew I was GONNA say yeah pretty much before I even read it because I just know I know the writer that he is and I know the show runner that he is and I know the collaborator. That he is a new that I would be allowed to take ownership and and that's something that I look to for years now. I have experience with John. Ridley you know with John. Wells and Bittermann Christopher. Christopher Chu Lock on South Plan you know so Once you started out having that experience on Southland that kind it led me to a space of knowing that if I don't feel like the processes collaborative then I don't WanNa be a part of it you now So who is Angela era. Angela uh I really feel like she's kind of a a representation of All of us in all of us. I don't mean just all black people I mean all people I don't mean just all women are truly mean all people because once you you tune in to just even the first episode in you'll see along the way and it will also be indicative in other characters as as well. She wears a lot of masks. You know we see in the trailers commercials this sister night so we know that that that is one of her masks. The obvious mask but when we meet her we think we're meeting Angela. A Bar and then little few minutes later we we meet the other man ask Am I. Guess I'd say that the that got a woman we meet our little deeper into the show. That's probably the closest to the essence of Angela's because she's most comfortable dribble most In her natural skin with her family with her man. We're going to talk about So we're talking about here right now. That's a nice little Yahya Abdul Mateen sack ars leg. This is me. Yeah doing amazing amazing. He's in amazing women. Being he's the best work has been you know Someone can have the best Partner is is an artist to Build in a scene with into Not over talk assine but Get get into the nuanced moments In a scene Dive into the odd little things and said I think the audience sees but it's not in the dialogue in that comes from chemistry of actors. Obviously it starts with the writing and directing but the chemistry between the actors and the respect for the art form If it's mutual with the actors in with the I committees that and I didn't even realize he headlines Right before looking at it like oh he said did he just flow spray. Tina's husband gear liked it. Yeah so you never wanted to call she. which isn't new for? Are you here. But it's interesting. That whole being of number one kosh she'd and people have that talk talk about that so much and I guess I just. I'm old school. And kinda come from a space of There are no small parts arts. They're just small actors. That was something that was said to me. Early early early. Mateen's you know maybe even pre teens means and that stuck with me so Something that my acting coach back then bridges. WHO's top bridges? Meyer Oh yeah yeah in. She said that early on just that never left me so when I hear that understand that people are saying that out out of respect in in in and they feel pride in that in that position but I'd say that did I don't give anymore than I gave. When I'm any other number on the call sheet well? That was the first prime I sense. Sounds because not only are you the number one number one percent of the cost that you are one of three Oscar winners on this show keep that which is fears ears fierce so and I think what makes it even more fears is it's one of three Oscar Winners winners that you still know all of our names you now off. Sometimes you like oh well. Who is that person? They want an Oscar in nineteen such such can you just. You don't remember their name but there are people they may not have even seen a Jeremy Irons or Lou gossett junior movie. But you say those named when you light all heard that name before so I don't know why that makes it more significant for me for some reason because it says something about these actors in their careers in how they've navigated them. That Dave remain relevant. You know you to it including myself so correct me if I'm wrong. I think you said that. When when you won the Oscar you were going back to Atlanta? To work on watchmen right one and then yeah so we were all screaming screaming of course but what did you feel the second before you one in the second after you heard your name. Do you remember. Well I won't say the second seconds before I I remember even watch the Oscars before an Kudos to the team. The men and women in stand beside me. They never reminded me that best supporting actress. Whose first up and so I just you know? We're having a good time. You know arrive here. Settled in the seat and white dress and theater ask you know and you know in my an amy. Tina came out and they said that the I was at how is happening. Now it's happening okay. It's happening what's couldn't be a face with the and I just remember looking over my mom.

"Off shoes. Boy You pledge yourself which a non assets I I don't know. How are You doing this Regina? I'm doing well excited to be here your first time. Like guesting on another podcast. Are you serious? Yeah I believe you're such a natural podcast conversations my house. That's a travesty. Thank you thank you know. I'm super excited to be here. Been like such a big fan of your podcast and I feel like I don't know I just I love listening to you speak. I feel like the podcast is just obviously like a great way. I mean we have known each other only for a few months but I feel like every time we talk. It's just so real and raw and genuine. I feel like I've known you forever. I feel the same way. Well it's funny because I've been listening to your podcast with Christine perfectly imperfect. I've been listening to that for quite a while so I feel like it's that same feeling of like we know each other feel. I've talked with you and heard your thoughts and feelings for awhile. Sounds interesting feeling of connection which I appreciate but no. I've had so much fun getting to know you. Regina this shoutouts off the Mike Girls because this was a great connection. Oh yeah definitely definitely yeah. Well we're here. This was actually something that I wanted to do for quite a while even before off the Mike and it was just further solidified by events where you got to host such a great conversation. I heard it from multiple people about body positivity and just knowing more about what you've been going through as a person as a professional I stopped me so great to have you sit down and talk with me on first of all okay because it is something. It's a topic that you know. I think any person can relate to yeah yours truly for sure And I'm just curious because I couldn't be part of your breakout session. I was curious like how that went for. You like what you guys talked about there. So the first time we ever even brought up this topic of light body positively or just like body. Consciousness was in an episode. We did for perfectly perfect also like way way in the beginning and I remember. I had such a hard time recording. That was my first time really actually owning up to it because I've always grown up like a little curvier than other girls you know. I'm not necessarily plus sized but you know girls got a booty and it was always like really hard for me to buy. Clothes made me feel really self conscious to like constantly compared to other Asian American females. And so I think that it was so hard for me to record that that even as I was editing. I ended up opening up more like ended up editing like recording separate clips and then having that inserted in because I felt like I wasn't tripping as true and open about my body image issues like that. I grew up kind of struggling with so that was like my first kind of intro into just like kind of talking about it more openly. That's because that's such a public way. You know what I mean if you've never even say in a private setting between friends like really even acknowledged it to go. It's like going zero to one hundred pretty quick so I just wanted to take a second sorry to interrupt but just commend that because I think it's incredibly brave like honestly I don't know this whole podcast situation. Just getting to know myself in my thirties. And even before that which was like being aware of like your own truth as as cliches that sound but like knowing yourself and knowing how you are y you are the way you are. The total is a big deal. You know so yeah I mean I feel like that's how I feel about my own podcast where I feel like I'm diving into these topics where I'm like Ha. I didn't realize that that behavior stemmed from. This is why I think the way that I do so I am very grateful for that and yeah I think that with this. I think that the outreach to that from the community after you do talk about these like really hard hitting topics like that was super encouraging to just hear like other people's struggles that they feel the same way and the thing is like everybody has some sort of warped body image issue. I'd like you know even my friends who I think are. Oh so perfect. They're all like Oh. I hate my hips. I hate my Blah Blah. Everybody has that about themselves. And I think that that's what I wanted the session to be about where it's like a lot of these perceptions that we have about ourselves are the most negative thoughts that we think about ourselves one hundred percent not in like but the thing is the problem is is that we project onto other people and whether that's dating friends meeting. New People like I remember sometimes like in College. I would wear like a skirt. That's like a little tighter. Maybe my stomach showing a little and I'd be like Oh my God. You know this guy that I'm meeting right now. That's probably all he sees that which is consumed me. Oh my God. I looked terrible. I feel terrible and it's probably not even what the other prisoners thinking in the first and so we always build up this idea of who we are in other people's eyes when in reality that's just how we think about ourselves. Oh totally and it's like that's the all consuming nature of these insecurities. Should they go in my opinion? This is my opinion but like should they go unacknowledged they they start to really run the show. And that's the part that I think has been so maddening about that whole process of becoming more self. Aware is recognizing because it is a very for me at least. It was like a super humbling infuriating realization of like how much these decisions or these into not decisions. Honestly I wasn't deciding I feel like these insecurities these beliefs or these are straight up this board at like paranoia right really delusions of grandeur. Whatever you WANNA call them. I don't know what the proper a psychological term is but it ran my life. You know and in part still kind of does which still pisses me off in like a noisy. But I'm just really trying to reconcile without which is why I care about having these kinds of conversations because it does help to hear that I'm not alone in this. Play this issue and this feeling of like you. Sometimes you like. You're crazy person because you can't ever just chill you're not for me. At least I just. I couldn't relax 'cause I'm always in my head about it. Yeah and your mind is just thinking about all the negative things about yourself not even just about body image is like oh. I don't like the way I said that I don't like the way that I wrote that. I don't like the way that you don't like it's it's all consuming and I feel like that so much so negatively affects your self esteem and the way that you via the way that you view yourself the way that you even put yourself out there. You know like even a work situation friend situation. I feel like when you start thinking about all these negative thoughts. You don't put your best self forward for and I love what you said about acknowledging the fact that you have these insecurities. I think that was huge for me. I think in the beginning I was always like why do I feel this way? Why do I have these like negative thoughts about myself all the time in? Why my projecting that I'll to other people. I think that when I was able to really hone in on like okay this stem from growing up in an Asian household where Asian family members not just parents which is of like. Pick at your body like. Oh yeah they take liberties. Yeah exactly right. It's it doesn't even phase them. It's like asking about the weather. It's like Oh you've gained weight. Thank you you're so bad. Yeah my yeah exactly. And it's like such a mixed like ward cultural thing too and I remember when I was little like one of my great aunts used to like love to like like slap my arms and my thighs us like so bound. C. And she's like Oh.

there's some big stuff here now I want to talk a little bit about watchman because it's weird because this is it's based on a very famous comic book that came out some time ago that's very very popular to comic book nerds and I know as you know that comic book nerds are the most relaxed forgiving people so have you have you had any encounters have you been down to like comic con to deal with it yet I have and you know what what so far so good you gotta standing no at our screening you know well I hope you can move on this to be like in marvel movies and just like make the we're heroes

blurt it out like hi alienated forever something like that really is the hardest person on NPR. how Kerry groves they're saying that what did what did Sam Elliott hey when you told him that you had had a crush on him I think he blushed really behind the mustache that's nice origene king it is an absolute pleasure to talk to you we've invited you here to play a game that we're calling I'm not a watchman I'm a watchman So you're starring in watchmen so we thought we'd ask you about watch men specifically the people who collect luxury watches Greta wondered obese by Gerry Steinberg in the New Yorker about his obsession with watches and we're going to ask you three questions about this particular obsession get to write you win are are these is a real term for something that collectors look for in a desirable watch visit a emotional complications B symbol challenges or see thick beefy lugs the or if you like which of these things would you want to see unisem Ellie Hirth GonNa say the big BP was if you're gonna go for that that's right very good plugs are the part of the watch that the wristband hatches to and you want thick beefy ones that's nice stick beefy want somebody next question you've probably seen those watches with the really enormous faces like the size of tea saucers that were popular just a few years ago what do watch Aficionados call those watches a laws the end Holy View or French for Hubcap Watch be Penis Extenders C. U. W. owes for defied wrist objects the word penis. It's fun so I'm GonNa go with your thanks for the call according to Mr Stein guards the true watch efficient auto does not care for those overly large watches and believes they are an expression of male insecurity relationship between the two like you look at Big Watch and that tells you what I think it might tell you that they're making up for something else I think that's the short second hand all right so you're doing really well here Virginia for luxury watches unlike common watches are made by hand by craftsman at one factory in Germany the watchmakers were under stringent rules including which of these they're not allowed to drink ever be the cannot eat tic TACs because they could be confused with Ted talks or see they're not allowed to eat any roughage because believed intestinal gas harms the mechanism. Oh that last one but I'm going to go with eighty your right again I believe German watchmakers that any drinking at all makes the handshake and you don't want that in your luxury watch maker so I'd like to buy a watch that to me by a drunk person in what it would be an original it would be joking how did we Jean King Do on our show Regina King a superhero with an Oscar you gotta be right that's true and I ask you a question this guy I know why love you girl when you're at the Academy Awards and you know obviously he didn't know if you're GONNA win or not head put that camera right beside your head Edwin they're saying the nominees did you know had you already decided on what face you would make if you know what I did watchmen when you're a superhero beating people up it's am it's a perfect combination of me and my son doubles the gymnast I am not Christian had to could you kick somebody's ass right now that would be again yes king starring in Washington at premieres an HBO October Twentieth.

Shut up, and it's just shut up against didn't hadn't say the way. She says that it's just It's so. just so packed with with. Meaning she's really good at being. Startled and confused and kind of the vessel through which we learn the world, she she is very good at the fish out of water part of it. I it is funny. She addition she really wanted to be Regina, George Lindsay Lohan handed, and I don't think that she could she can't pull off mean girl as well. As to my cat. It's thank God that they cast it the way it did because some of her plastic stuff. And again, I think this performance it's good because she's not quite selling it as well. And she's not supposed to be right? You know, the point of this is that that's not who she is. And she's not comfortable. But yeah, man. She's no, she's no Rachel mcadams. And that department definitely not Lindsay Lohan as she becomes more plastic and has the worst haircut is so distracting. Hannah's so hideous.
