"Out the constitutional right to abortion, the prosecution of women suspected of purposefully or accidentally ending a pregnancy was on the rise. According to reproductive rights lawyers, there's been a movement to use state laws on child endangerment, fetus side or murder to arrest women whose pregnancies ended prematurely, and it may be a harbinger of what's to come. Joining me is Bloomberg legal reporter Patricia Herta. Even before roe was overturned, there have been cases where women have been prosecuted for miscarriages or stillbirths.

CNN Reports Overwhelming Frustration Among Democrats
"Here's CNN cut 16. New CNN reporting this morning about an overwhelming sense of frustration. Among Democrats over what is being described as mismanagement inside the Biden administration. One member of Congress calls The White House rudderless aimless and hopeless. Joining us now seen in senior reporter Edward Isaac dovere, who broke this story, Isaac, the call is coming from within the caucus. I mean, these are Democrats telling you these things. What do they say? Well, John, that's right. There is a lot of frustration that they want more action out of President Biden. They feel like days, weeks go by, there's not enough going on to say that they're taking decisive moves to combat inflation. Obviously, it's a big problem that is very complicated, but still they'd like to see some activity around it and they'd like to see that on other things. You'd like to see more decision making go on. They'd like to see some accountability when it comes to even firing people over the baby formula situation or other things before that that have continued to crop up in this administration and this White House and they feel like this is feeding a problem that the president has and the Democrats have going into the midterms in November that there is not enough decisive action going on that people don't feel like they're responsive enough to all of the problems that are there. And it's also feeding some doubts about where President Biden would be for reelection in 2024.
Fresh update on "reporter" discussed on Bloomberg Law
"Brusso from Bloomberg radio. I've been talking to Greg Farrell Bloomberg investigative reporter with the legal enforcement team about the lawsuit filed by former arcticus managing director Brendan Sullivan for $50 million, claiming he's owed the money from deferred bonuses he was forced to invest with the company. Sullivan claims that employees were sort of forced to invest a chunk of their annual bonuses. Yes, insofar as you were allowed to contribute a much bigger chunk of your bonus into the deferred comp plan. Or you could put in just a smaller fraction of that. And he was interested in the smaller fraction part, but it was made clear to him that the decision on how much you get for his bonus would not be decided until he made his decision as to how much of it was going to go into the deferred complement. So it's clearly viewed by Sullivan and presumably others as it's good for you. Your bonus will be bigger if you decide to put more of it in the fund. So it's alleged that basically Bill Wang was using the deferred compensation plan as like an interest free loan

The White House Scrambles to Point Finger Amid Rising Energy Costs
"One of the reasons some of these companies don't want to drill is because the administration has made it very clear. They don't want them drilling. So who the heck would actually put any investment into any new rigs or any new technology to gain this stuff out of the ground? You wouldn't, right? And yes, maybe the profitability is better and shareholders are certainly happy about that, but the answer is not to say, you are not allowed to make more than 10% profit if you make more than 10% profit, we're going to double tax you. Somehow, dare I say idiots because I think the economic minds in The White House might actually just be at that level, right? These idiots think that if you tax everybody more, the companies that is, well, then somehow they'll want to produce more and they'll be incentivizing. Come on. You know exactly what would happen. They would cut back even more. I guess profitability would go up even higher at the margins because you've got less supply. And it would be a disaster. Anyway, they have to point the blame at someone. And so again, the reporter was asking, which is it? Like $5 gasoline or a $61,000 electric vehicle. And they're trying to say, well, it's the oil companies who are at fault. I'm sorry. You're going to have to do better than that.
The US Economy Is in an Increasingly Delicate Position
"Let's talk first about some of the. The challenge is overall before we get to AOC that the American economy continues to face. And frankly, the reluctance of the administration to really do anything about it. I mean, this is at least the perception. Maybe they're trying, but there's such a lack of, frankly, competence when it comes to the issue of ensuring economic prosperity and tempered inflation that I think that effectively sort of doomed here for the next 6 months, 12 months, whatever you want to call it. I mean, I hope that recession is not going to be bad. I think it hopefully will be just a little one, but listen, there is an attitude out there that somehow, you know, you can just go buy that $60,000 EV and solve your problem, which by the way makes no sense because people are going to actually have to plug in the EV and don't forget they're still paying for electricity. They're still paying for natural gas. I mean, the cost of everything is going up. But a fox reporter really pushed The White House on this this week. Let's listen to the exchange. Trying to do right now is to deal with an acute problem right now, which is why the president, again, asked for a 90 day suspension of the gas tax, the gas tax holiday. It is going to make a difference. Peter, we're talking about 18 cents on the federal on the federalist level. We're talking about an average of 30 cents on the state level. And if the oil refinery does their job, if they do what we are asking them to do, which is put their profits back in so that gas prices can go down, that's almost a dollar per gallon. That matters. Sure. It matters. But you know what? We don't live in Venezuela. This is not a socialist country. Companies are not there to do what might help Joe Biden and the Democrats. I mean, companies are there to maximize their profits for shareholders. That's the whole idea.
John Zmirak Shares a 'Tragic' Piece From the Washington Post
"A few days ago, Eric, I saw a piece in The Washington Post written by a clearly pro choice reporter named Caroline kitchener. She is their official abortion reporter. And she did a long feature about what she thought of as a woman who she thought of as a victim of the Texas heartbeat bill, heartbeat law, which says no abortion after her heartbeat can be detected. And she wrote this piece about the difficulties this woman faces and her troubles and the problem is it's a happy story with a happy ending to any normal person. When this woman gets an ultrasound and finds out not only do the kids have a heartbeat that is their heartbeat, she can't have an abortion, but it's twins. It's twin girls. She immediately gets excited and says, it's a miracle. I'm glad I'm keeping them. The boyfriend marries her. They're still married as of now. They're delighted to have each other to delighted to have the kids, but to The Washington Post, this is a tragedy because their blue collar. They live in Texas. Their kids won't go to boarding school. They won't go to Harvard. They won't go to Paris. They're going to live in the Bible belt where people try to pray for football games. And so to the readers of The Washington Post, this is tragic. I mean, the boyfriend can't skateboard all day anymore. He had to get a job. Blue collar job. Governor presents that Texas. He could run for president, is his name beto be honest. Be honest. A woman's not a billionaire. So he didn't have that motivation to marry her that beto
Biden Shows off Embarrassing Cheat Sheet
"President Biden, I don't call him president. Biden today, today being Thursday. You'll hear this tomorrow on Friday. Biden, the schmuck, inadvertently held up a detailed cheat sheet that his staff prepared out of mercy instructing this guy, this leader of the free world to take your seat while you are capitalized. And limit your remarks to two minutes, these are instructions that were prepared that Biden accidentally held up a cheat sheet and held it up facing the wrong way so the cameras spotted it. You'll read all about it. I'm sure you already have, but it's time you hear this show. And the instruction whether the speech was for offshore wind drop by sequence of events and the cheat sheet told Biden to enter the Roosevelt room and say hello to participants. Then the paper says, you all caps, take your all caps C you take your seat because you have to tell a man. Who's not really, it's not really familiar with what to do in political rooms. You know, it's not fair. The guy's only been doing this for 50 years. You know, you're still going to, it's still important to tell her that where he's going to go. You take your seat. Then the note says that after reporters arrive, you give brief comments for two minutes. And when the report is depart, you ask Liz schuler, president of the AFL CIO, a question, and then you thank participants and you give part. Can you believe this is going on?
Maine Insurance Agency Slammed for Racist Sign
"This person ain't gonna be able to live this one down, ladies and gentlemen, a major insurance company or a major issue in this company's terminated their relationship with a main insurance agency after it allegedly displayed a racist sign about Juneteenth holiday earlier this week. A photo taken Monday, which the communist news network has obtained shows a signed taped to the inside window of the Harry E Reed insurance company in millinocket. Maine. Now, before we get to the story, have you ever heard of millinocket Maine? Well, you know what? We did our research. Miller not get made got 4000 people in it. And 90 plus percent are white people. And the only black person in the city took a picture of this fried chicken and collard green sign. So let me read you what the signs say, Juneteenth. At the very top of the sign and then it says you can see it here if you're watching on TV. And then it goes down and it says, it's whatever. And then below that, it says, we're closed, and then below that, it says, enjoy your fried chicken and collard greens. Now, before I got mad at this sign says, I actually got hungry. Because I love fried chicken. And collard greens. Especially if grandma cook it. When my grandma cooked, it's off the chain. But the young lady comes out. I don't know if this is a young lady or not. It says the person who said they posted the sign issued an apology on Facebook, writing, in part, in part on the company's page. I am so sorry for any pain, I have caused in a negative attention I have brought to our beautiful company. I don't want to hear it. You only sorry because you got in trouble. It is unacceptable.
Why Arizona Should Support Kari Lake
"And I don't know if you live in a state of Arizona, but if you are in Arizona, Carrie Lake is a rockstar. I'm just saying, I've met her before. I met her husband. I've endorsed Carrie Lake. I've done many events. I've been, I've been around, you know, I've been around her. I had her own just the other day to explain some fake news media, trying to push propaganda against her. And I'm gonna have her on again. Why do I support Carrie Lake? Because she works harder than any person in politics I have ever seen. Only Donald Trump maybe can rival carry Lake at how hard she worked. And I would argue if I had to default. I think Carrie Lake is more active than Donald Trump was. Every single place I've ever seen someone running for office Carrie Lake is there. Every single community event Carrie is there. Every single debate Carrie is there. I can't imagine these others being there. I don't see them. Sometimes they don't even show up for some of the debates. One time Karen was the only one out of the major candidates to show up to a debate. They punked out. Now, why would they do that? Because Carrie Lake is a boss.
The Constitutional Errors of Red Flag Laws
"I want to continue our conversation about gun laws, gun legislation, and specifically red flag laws Rand Paul had made mention that there is a lot of constitutional errors that could be exploited. In the red flag laws pertaining to due process anonymous anonymous accusations that could be made against a person causing them to lose their right to keep and bear arms. Can you continue this conversation by explaining your thoughts on red flag laws and why they could be a very dangerous thing? Yeah. So I mean, they start with this sort of nugget of good and truth. Which is that nobody wants someone who is actively dangerous to themselves or others to have access to firearms. The problem becomes how these laws are written in practice. When you look at the 20 or so states that have passed this, all of these laws, as they exist now, suffer from at least a number in some cases far more than just a couple of very serious due process concerns. You referenced the senator Paul in some of the concerns that he has and I think those are all correct. You want to make sure that you're not allowing unfounded accusations to be used against people.
Getting Into the Guts of New York State Gun Restrictions
"Right? So according to many states in according to the constitution of the United States America in a ruling from the Supreme Court is that you can have certain restrictions on what they would call sensitive places, right? You can't bring a gun into a bank. You can't carry a gun into a courthouse. You know, you may not be able to carry a gun into a place where I think it's that stupidest thing in the world, what they would consider to be a free gun or gun free zone. There are certain sensitive places that a particular state officials can require that a gun not be taken to. In some cases, for obvious reasons, other cases, I think it's absolute stupid. However, the state of New York wanted to dean that every place that people literally gather in congregate is a sensitive place. And that's just completely asinine.
Supreme Court Strikes Down New York State Gun Restrictions
"There was a great decisions from Elise 6 of the Supreme Court Justices, passing down advisory methods when I say advisory methods, I mean direction as to how to treat the Second Amendment, specifically the way New York State has treated the Second Amendment, proving for clarence Thomas and others that New York's restrictions on the Second Amendment is out of control. Let me just give you an example of one caveat to gun ownership in New York State. According to laws in New York State, you have to provide a reason. For you to carry a gun. Meaning you go to a gun store to buy a gun, a part of your evaluation on whether or not you're capable of culpable of handling a firearm is that you have to then provide them a reason why you should be able to carry a firearm. And then they have discretion to deny your reasoning. And home self defense, according to New York State law, isn't enough for you to be able to carry a gun.
CNN: There Are Serious Problems With Biden's Gas Tax Holiday
"Selling. But I do want to share an example of a propaganda network that is all Democrat all the time like CNN and what reporter Matt Egan said to CNN's Erica hill, just yesterday. But to John's point, there are some serious problems here. It's also important to remember that just because things poll well doesn't mean it's necessarily smart policy. What? Not always the same thing. Like John said, this does nothing to fix supply. It actually supports demand at a time when demand can't keep up with supply. Moody's economist, Mark Zane, he told me that he is concerned that this could be inflationary. And there's no guarantee that energy companies are going to pass along the entire savings here. And then there's the fact that this money funds the building of highways at a time when the construction of the building in the highways has gone up because of rising costs for building material and labor. So there's a lot of issues here and I think it does show why Obama in 2008 called it a gimmick. Uh oh, you're losing CNN, Biden.

"reporter" Discussed on Poetry Off The Shelf
"Of the event, the time for prayer. And it was so beautiful. It was the first time I saw that sound on the page and heard it. Recognized it. It was this really great moment of connection. And then that's when I really I think realized like, oh, like, poetry is really great. I really love that. Yeah, maybe. But do you feel that for as much as you are on the outside of your parents or your father's Palestinian experience, do you feel that writing about what you write about, you know, do you feel like it has bridged some of that distance? Do you feel like you've gotten closer? Do you feel like you understand your father better for having written about him? I don't think I'm ever going to understand my father. Do we ever understand our parents? Well, no, okay, there's the fundamental mystery of them, but I also felt in your arms. I did feel like there was a real push more, how'd you say that? Yeah. And intimacy. Yeah. Definitely, he was. And I don't want to speak for him, because everyone has their own internal feelings, but I think to some degree, I always knew his grief or that it felt like it was mine. Or recognize that aloneness in him and it hurt. It hurt to like carry that. No one told me I had to. It's just like. You grow up with people and it's almost like it's like osmosis, right? Like you can't, where is the separation? You can close your bedroom door, but like that person's presence and we never really separate, right? And I think I felt that very deeply I felt his grief very deeply and I felt very isolated. They isolated us, my parents, they were isolated. I mean, I don't know where that begins or ends, right? That emotion and it's very blurry. Yeah. Yeah. But you know, to go back to that poem that you just read. You hate the way I interrupt Al Jazeera, how I seek answers to questions that shouldn't be asking. And also there is already this kind of friction between your dad. You know, every hour we talk makes me wonder if you'll ever make eye contact. Will you look at me? And I'm going to distraction. Yeah, that I thought was interesting too. I understand that American society is kind of held at bay because that only means it would come to replace Palestine, you know. But your kids. What do you think made it hard for him to connect to you? I think that dad. You know, there was Palestine, and then we existed as destructions away from his fixation on it. I don't think dad, I don't think dad sauce. I think he was, I think he was very engulfed in his grief and trauma and I think, I think we were objects to be moved around to get to Palestine. And I'm not like. I'm not mad or upset about that. If you ask my brothers, they would be better. I think. Again, I just think it's politics. It's just history. It's geography. It's the way that it's all this shit I can't control that was in my household that I had to just deal with, right? So and that's not to make an excuse for him either. But it's just recognizing generational trauma, right? Right. Right. Yeah. So I have a sense from reading your poetry and from talking to you that you have a lot of weight on your shoulders, you know, like not just as a reporter when you're carrying the pain of all these people that you talk to. But also your father's grief and then by extension, you know, Palestine's grief. And so I'm wondering with all of that grief and responsibility on your shoulders, you know, to write about it to write about it in the right way and so on. How do you allow yourself the space to write a different kind of home? You know, to write a poem about your happiness or about someone you love or something that has nothing to do with all this responsibility and grief. How do you allow yourself that space? Is it a struggle? No. No, I mean that. I think joy and love is also resistance, right? Like, I love, I love Ross gay's work. Yeah. I mean, nobody can look at that work and say that Ross gay does not carry a lot on his shoulders, right? Yeah. Yeah. And I think my friend Jeremiah oh consi, who's also a poet would also argue that joy is revolutionary and would also remind me that it's time to go to Cleveland on a Saturday and you know they're going to make me really sugary waffles with all of the toppings and we're going to eat. You know, I think there is no lack of joy in my life. And I'm very thankful for that, but I also think that that's a very intentional thing. Yeah. Can I ask you to read a poem that I thought was exceptionally joyful? It's called it's called ode. Pace. Thing. But it starts the night comma so warm, I could fall in love. Yes, this is for my friend, Kevin. I love this poem because it was after a really good night. Of a lot of like calm and quiet. Owed..

And he's like, yeah, that's just the fancy term for eviction. So they don't even call it eviction. That is. You don't call it eviction. You don't have a name. It's a case number case number, case number. The actual name of the eviction, it's called of restitution. And that would mass tenants up a lot because the magistrate wouldn't say, okay, the eviction has been granted. You're being evicted. She would say the restitution has been granted. And no one ever knew what a rid of restitution was. And those tenants have no representation? I mean, low income tenants are the least likely to have representation. If they do show up, a lot of them don't show up. And I think an Akron Cleveland is different, Cleveland, you have to have a lawyer as a tenant. But in Akron, there's no rule that says you have to have a lawyer. So you have these lawyered up landlords who already have a considerable amount of power because landownership is power and then these tenants who are obviously can not afford their rent and are being evicted who don't even understand the language of what's happening around them. Or the technology. I mean, the technology was a mess. Yeah, and also not everyone, I mean, especially not people who are at risk of being evicted usually are not the wealthiest people. Internet access is not a given. So did you report on people who just didn't have Internet access and couldn't be there? Yeah, we did. I remember we surveyed in the very beginning. We looked up the records of people who had scheduled eviction hearings coming up in a couple days and we had visited them and asked. And I was doing all of this work, by the way through reveal. Yeah. And they were a big step for investigative reporting. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. They were a really big support. Sort of walking me through this giant system, but we'd gone around to some neighborhoods to ask people and a lot of them some of them didn't know that they had eviction hearings coming up. Some of them knew, but did not plan to go many of them had already left their homes. And a lot of them said that they didn't have Internet access or that they didn't know what zoom was or remember, if you're working in an industry in the service industry or, you know, you have income that's coming in from doing odd jobs or any blue collar type work. You don't necessarily spend 8 hours a day and an office on Zoom, like the rest of us. This isn't just the language of the privilege that I'm counting myself in that is language that is it's not the same. It's not the same language. It's not the same world. And then they would log in and it's like, I mean, I was like, I don't know if I'm in this right room. This doesn't say eviction, or they'd be in these waiting rooms for some time wondering if they were in the right place. I mean, it was really little things like that that really beat a person down, I think. Yeah. And you write quite a bit in your essays and in your poetry about the sense of powerlessness that you feel around your reporting that you're reporting is probably not going to save anybody from being evicted. And so I'm wondering how do you tell that to the people that you ask? Can I interview you? Do they have other expectations? Do they think that you can actually help and how do you tell them that you can't? I wish I had an answer to that. And when I do, maybe I will report again on that level. I haven't reconciled it. I haven't gotten comfortable with the discomfort of not knowing the answer to that. I'm writing a second book about this right now. That's sort of documenting. And asking that question of what the point of writing or witness or storytelling is. Because there's that really, and this is going to sound so jaded. But there's that really optimistic standpoint of writing changes the world, you know, stories matter. And they do, but there's so much there's so much like useless consumption that's happening at the same time. There's such a high volume of everything, including bad news, right? And where does it all go? And I don't think I don't think we figured out how to reconcile that. And so I don't know what the answer is and honestly it did feel very useless in the thing that snapped that into focus. For me, very early on was we knocked on this guy's door. He answered it. He was incredibly agitated with us. Even. Hinging on a little bit of it was scary. It was scary. He was a little violent. He looked like he wanted to hit us, and I don't blame him. Yeah. We obviously introduced ourselves told him what we wanted from him and he looked at us with the most just dumbfounded look on his face. And said what the fuck is your article going to do to prevent me from sleeping in my car in two days? And slam the door. And I had no, I had no answer. I mean, I don't know, right? Yeah. I didn't go and I didn't go to journalism school. I was not indoctrinated with this idea that reporters changed the world. I did not carry myself ever with that mindset of I'm doing really, really important work for me it was I love writing and I love spending time with people and there was moments of great connection and intimacy with quote unquote subjects that I was working with in alongside and that's why I loved it. I didn't do it because I believed in this higher minded idea of truth. But then I felt really, really dumb. Like, yeah, what was that going to do? And then why do we produce? I was going to write the article and then I was going to hope that some politician who was probably white who was going to pick it up and attempt to change the system. Even though the entire system of politics in this country is flawed with voter disenfranchisement and all of the ways we block populations from voting or that somebody was going to,.

And again things that you remember orange buckets arriving by the truckload. And I turned to one of the guys who were emergency crews who was next to it says that we're guiding us through the site. And I said what are the buckets for? And he said body parts. I know it. Yeah. And it was just like oh my God. And that's the aim for these people. And again you know you just think about each one of those buckets is a body or a person and it's a family and that's a life. The worst pieces of somebody are part of somebody.

And we were actually doing live shots walking through this ballroom that what had happened is because of the force of the explosion it set off the fire alarms. So the rumored flooded to the extent. And so basically we were sloshing around a mixture of water and blood and brains and flesh and everything that was like that was left over from the suicide bombing. There were bits of people skull still embedded. In the ceiling above us it was always left of it. And what had happened and this is what happens in television is that the producers in New York and D.C. though we saw the live shot that we had done for one of the early morning shows and the producers and donate this wrong way it's just how we talk and that's great TV. And TV horrendous but I know what you mean. Let's do it again. And so I had to do this thing over and over and over again walking through the blood. And like just every hour almost don't stop.

"Reporter of the after newspaper had it they had a history there of of pulling these hoaxes to point out the absurdity of of Jim crow and so they asked Mabel grant to was very fair skinned if she and her niece would try to slip into the park on the day of the second protest figuring that the ticket takers would be very nervous worrying about the protest and wouldn't look that carefully at people and so they did and they slipped they bought their tickets they went in they bounce arrives including the carousel and then they left just before the protests started told their story to the reporter who wrote this this and news article so I tracked her down I was very hard to do it was sort of beef I started this research before the internet was really very very often so I I saw what her name was and so I guess Facebook friended everybody with that last name on Facebook and finally met a distant cousin who is that all I remember her and so I phoned her up and she started crying on the phone and she said I've been trying to find that article for so long and I can't find it nobody seems to know where it is she was so glad that someone remembered what she had done and and then she had purchased she was only eleven years old at the time and so we have met many times that since then and she comes to all the programs that I've done on the book and she's going to come to a program for you going to do on January twentieth at the Reginald Lewis museum in Baltimore and tell her story again on video for for for the museum so that was really wonderful wonderful story and they were at her and apparently was a very lively person very gutsy up to doing things like this yeah my guess or share Langley in Amy Nathan the name of this children's book is a ride to remember a civil rights stories Sherrin story when she as a very tiny girl integrated he park in Baltimore a carousel specifically this carousel Amy is now on the national mall right how did that happen well the amusement park with them greatly damaged by a hurricane in nineteen seventy two and if it had been having financial problems because as it feared many white people stop going to the park mindset with integrated and said they had financial problems and then that hurricane just sort of did the men they couldn't afford to to bring it back but luckily thick the carousel was inside the house the carousel house so it was not destroyed by the hurricane and it was just put up for auction and the concessionaire for the Smithsonian I needed a new bigger carousel than the one that they had and so he bought it not knowing anything about the history of it not just because it was a big beautiful carousel so he bought it and this is a start on the national mall in nineteen eighty one and they didn't actually the Smithsonian didn't know the story the carousel honor to know the story the National Park Service did know this story and tell I started researching it and I found out I was I was wondering when I was read this all about the history of this well what did happen to the carousel so I found there's something called the national carousel association and they know where every historic carousel it is and so they told me well it's now on the national mall and so when I told them about the story about Sharon's ride in its history in the civil rights movement they were just really taken with that idea and since then they have you know have an historical marker installed at the carousel and they found that they looked at historic photos and figured out which horse Sharon road they took that carousel and they decorated it with the names of civil rights heroes and they put Sharon's name when the metal plate on the back of the saddle and also in one of the core issues and so now when when families come to the national mom walked by and you know it's a very popular tourist attraction if they stopped to look at the at the at the historical marker then they get a bit of a history lesson while they're having fun sure I think you need to hang out there on August twenty eighth how great would that be the name of the book is a ride to remember a civil rights story my guests have been sharing Langley and Amy Nathan Sharon Amy thank you so much for sharing your stories thank you for having yes thank you for having us coming up we'll have suggestions for ways you can honor doctor king on MLK day stay with us.

"What is the method of holding people accountable. At the end of the day when elected when it comes to elected officials although there are many other ways for things to happen the end of the day the buck walk has to stop with our with the voters ray especially with elected officials and yet there seems to be this constant stream of this vis behavior reward. Frankly in some cases were awarded. Yes I mean and I dark feeling it is really dark and I've been trying to keep people's names out of my mouth but when you have someone who is in a position of power to be consistently shown that they can say say whatever they want and there are no repercussions for that. It gives other people the idea that they can do the same well. A lot of folks talked about the civility ability question and we need to be more civil and I I personally take offense to that. I believe that what we need is a respect conversation. And yes where we can respect each other's ideas and also respect each other's persons and I think that is the thing respect each other's life choices or how they we're born or how they live. That comes down to it. We need to move from civility to respect. 'cause I think respect is what we're having here is the question we're having here. I'm glad that she will. He spoke up and told him that. His comment was unprofessional. And that he wouldn't have said this to a male reporter because it's true he wouldn't have said this to a male reporter he wouldn't have said this to a male colleague. He might have said it to another woman woman reporter and nobody would have said anything but the fact that she now knows that she has a voice that she can use and she has an outlet for that and I know it took a lot of courage and a lot of strength drinks to do that. So I know that there's one thing you know we always try to look at like Solutions and ways to make things better on this podcast. There's one thing that I know that you did last year kind of looking behind the curtain. That made a really big impact for you. Can you talk a little bit about that. So I went to this class. This verbal self defense class that was hosted by Laura Calill and she taught a group of women the ways that we can stop ourselves in a situation when something happens or someone says something really must up to you you get this fighter flight and oftentimes urine such shock that somebody just said something vile or something racist or something incredibly gross to you you and you're like what and it gets you out of your head and you can practice this and you can be like no but what did you mean by that and you call them out on it and it gives you the opportunity to take that control back and I think that every woman should take this class and I think it was incredibly helpful for me and it gave me a lot of of opportunity to help other women because I've also taught other women had to do the same thing. So if you're interested in learning more about verbal self defense and all all of that stuff you can find Laura at force of bad assery DOT COM. And we'll put a link to her website in the show notes and Allison Donahue. I just want to say thank you for being one hundred percent. That reporter plans to open a nine screen first first run movie theater restaurant and bar. In Detroit's midtown neighborhood are now dead and the culprit is Detroit's Bugaboo Parking crain's Detroit business reports at at the Austin Texas based chain Alamo Draft House pulled. Its plans to open a thirteen million dollar theater after the developer was unable to guarantee the three hundred parking parking spots. Alamos said it needed for the project. Alamos planning to open a theater on a parcel located near the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Woodward Avenue that there's only the Detroit water and Sewage Department. It was originally supposed to open this year. The site is well served by transit including a queue line station around the corner on Woodward. But let's be honest Detroit and metro-detroit remained solidly car dependent city and region critics including the group detroiters for parking reform. Whom whom we featured on this very podcast say? The city's vitality is being hurt by the presence of too many parking. Lots the news also means that Detroit will continue to be served by by just one first run movie theater. That's the Bel Air Luxury Cinema Multiplex on eight mile road so jair. I mean the sucks. I'm sorry that today's show is kind of a bummer. So here's the thing. I know that there's actually been very creative ways to implement Alamo theaters leaders in other places like parking on the roof Like working into buildings and stuff. It's Kinda crazy to me that this thing's done over three hundred parking spaces. I know that parking A. There's a lot of legal requirements for parking in the city code right now that I don't think people realize that they force parking. Another thing is is that there are parking lots nearby. But they're all mostly controlled by one guy and they sit empty. A ton of the time is is that one guy does he have a the big pizza and district. Yes that's in Detroit yes but regardless. This is the kind of thing that like in contrast me crazy. That downtown Detroit doesn't have a first run movie theater. You would think there'd be somewhere to catch that in town. Yeah I mean we did we. I used to. Oh yeah the Red San Lorenzo Fan. We had those four little screens. It would have been really great to be able to go downtown and to catch a really cool movie and beating Slip Dinner. People Forget. Detroit has a long history of movie houses and movie Patois so many of the the quote unquote ruins at some of which we've lost. They were movie palaces. Not Lake Fine Art theaters. You know what have been really great. What if and this is a big if because we already know what's going to happen to this? What what if? They renovated the United Artists Theater. Into what theater. Why instead of a parking lot I will? I'll say this though. I think we both need to take a moment and shout out a very cool little place. It is not that downtown. Detroit is a complete movie desert. Know The folks At Cinema Detroit do a wonderful job on the more independent outside. Run kind of style that and it is worth going and they work really the hard over there to find a really good films. I really do love Cinema Detroit. I think they do an amazing job and also want to highlight the Detroit film theatre that is always a a good one. It is always a good one at the. Va Right really pretty. It is really pretty. But it's a bummer. I mean I think it could have been good for all of the theaters right so you could do a first run. You could check out something more indie. You could start. Because that's the thing I think people don't realize so often in Detroit. It's what we must have one thing thing and only one thing no. We need multiple things. There needs to be like a network a neighborhood. A Bar does better when there's other places around it to go to that. Make it interesting twisting businesses. Do better together. And that's crazy thought that I don't think that we've understood around here for a long time. No because people expect to get in their car go to a parking space. Go to where they're going get back in their car. Go to another place. They don't think Oh. Well I can park one place. Take the people mover down and we don't offer it enough places either. We really don't and I know that the queue line is like a joke most of the time because let's face it. It is having a district works for tourism. It does work it. Does it works for the tourist who has no idea what they're here from wherever and they know that it will reliably go to a stop. That's near their map. And that is the one good thing. Now it's GonNa take them a lot longer than the bus or something they really will. It's kind of like Disney's least best ride. I kind of feel the same way that I felt about H. M. When H. and M. opened downtown where we were like. Oh we're actually a real city I felt that when we heard that Alamo draft house is coming to Detroit. I was super excited and stoked. I mean somebody. We've both lived in other cities. This kind of stuff is. There's so much stuff in Detroit that just is in other places. Yeah and we're always fighting for like we really need to get to the position of like this is just what we we have what we visit and it just works. I would love to be there. It's been a long time it's depressing. Hey if you can't you can't laugh you'll cry.

And you know what even if he only gets that much or less than that it's still a huge victory for him because he took the manufacturer of this, contaminated product, the court and he wants. And it's this is almost like a precedent setting thing or the rest of the industry.
