"And so now i so now maybe we need to sit back and it really appreciate those dudes that brought it for twenty nine weekends. I mean maybe it's not that hard right. Well no no. I think it's extremely hard. Yeah no. I'm sorry. I don't know what i meant. I didn't mean that maybe it's okay so it's you know sorry i was trying to get some stats on my phone. Twenty fifteen last time dutch outdoors and out really. Yeah so we're six years of having different champions you know so i think clearly the supercross tracks have become less technical and more risky meeting. I mean you know these guys are picking up quads and do things that are just gnarly. Yeah so the amount of mental energy and focus at a takes to not die all and for that timeframe it could. There's there's no question it's going to wear you down and where and if you come up short indoors you're like hey i get outdoors. You know what. I mean so now like you're hungrier than they do to the supercross title right now. You're like wait. I need to get outdoors. Because i had. I didn't win super cost. the. I don't know i've always been i. Guess i've been around. Guys that have just been mental giants. You know done excelled at it and watching watching and talking to some of the guys. Now that have come through especially philip oto the few times we don't here and talking about it. You know it was all he could do to keep that focus on and nothing else mattered. Ricki ricky when he was going through it you know i think ricki ricki time probably probably wasn't the most approachable and personal writer to the fans on the balloon right because every of every ounce of his energy to stay focused to do what that do did on the track. You don't win every national every moto by just getting lucky yeah. It requires a tremendous amount of and then at the end of his career. I think when he started changing and not not being that gnarly dude and being the racer right. All of a sudden thinks changed. Now look at him now. He's he's the same as the kid that i met back in the early eighties when you look at ricky villa. Po two examples. That i know well. They hated to lose more than they like to win. Do you know what. I mean like when they lost. That's what drove him when they want. It's like i'm sharing. So i think that's common amongst any anybody. That's the winds. Especially if she did anybody. You will call champion i so i just think we're in the era. I i mean obviously look there will be another guy to come around the be like ricky. I don't mean with his records. But i mean i think there'll be some guy. Some point will come and crush everybody right there. Just we kind of just it's ebbs and flows in the sports..

I don't know if impacts how you tell your stories or if it's your life experience because of your you know because of your gender you know so as a woman growing up by was formed and shaped in a certain way and therefore the way i tell stories is the way i just don't like to have it be about gender quite honestly yeah and then in terms of the stories that you choose that you gravitate toward Tour does it.

"I knew michael dorian The he was the son of john dory and I how i mean have gone there. Yes did i go there at that crowd no but A little bit older than he was in. That crowd was younger anyway but So that was what attracted me to that story in particular. I was like new york in the eighties group in their the eighties. And i knew robert chambers and so part of what was satellites. Sorry i just what. What is your perception of back fan. Before all that happened he was just quiet. He was a quiet kind of tall. Maybe a little bit brooding. He was probably sad in person. I i would say But a lot of the guys. I knew he hung out with. Were kind of dark. You know they were going through there was they. Were troubled were a lot of drugs. They didn't come from families that were necessarily stable and and this isn't an excuse for what he did at all. I'm just telling you what my impressions of him were and we hung out pretty soon as friends with a group of friends pretty regularly. I pretty much. I can't quite remember much. You know because he was very quiet but the access we had in the series was based on people that i grew up with an anne as well had gone to college with his high school girlfriend. So who went on to be an actor right. Yes i kind of deep dive on her a little bit after. Yeah yeah yes exactly. So and then survived differences. Similar like we. We were very interested in having giving the women and going and meeting the women and talking to them about their experience with joan. If you want me talk about joan.

"Arnold yep she you know look. I'm sure you encountered a million stories. So i guess the broader question. You know stephanie. Had this wild story where she sort of foresaw her death. She had placenta previa when she was pregnant. And basically thought you know this is going to end badly for me. And nobody believed or they all thought she was crazy including her husband and she basically did die for thirty seven seconds and experienced. What so many people report when they have those experiences and then sort of retroactively discovered. I think that she had these sort of medium powers or at least the Six cents or whatever you wanna call it. How did you decide. And she was a great storyteller i understand. She was a producer before. How did you decide what stories to include In in this series was really important that the people felt authentic and that they again weren't seeking attention by you know having near the death experience than just But that in telling of the story and sharing their story came from a very deep emotional place that it was it was important for them to share their story because they wanted others to know that they weren't alone that they weren't crazy that they had had similar kinds of experiences. And that's felt genuine to me. Both in stephanie. Arnold and dr. Mary neil who's the the surgeon who is kept under water for more than thirty minutes when when she was kayaking..

She reminded me of me. Homesick for new york. And the pandemic We really get into a lot of sort of the filmmaking in this latest netflix series. And of course.

"Were allowed to just sort of be there with them and be truthful and that is what really inspired me as a filmmaker than you know sort of as i get older. I'm very interested in visual ways to tell stories when you don't have the whole verite story there when you can't spend hundreds of hours filming with someone you help. How do i. Visually like create. The the feeling. And i think that was a lot of what was fun about surviving. Death is. I got to really be creative with visuals and music and tone And and so and then over the years also working with great people working with great. Dp's and music people in Lighting people I've learned from them to You know ways in which we can get more. I do encourage i think. Filmmakers documentary filmmakers. They you should know what lenses you like. You should know about equipment. You don't necessarily have to be able to shoot but like it's helpful because then you can talk about some kind of lights you on in certain kind of lenses you want to create Which will give you what you want. Yeah that's important understand the tools that you're using the toolbox definitely so what is next for you. So we're doing. So am working with anne on a feature doc for hbo and that has been on a bit of an odyssey In that We started it pre cove it about a year before covid head about inspired by the college scandal a well. Yeah and Then became a film about this musical that had been written about college pressures parallel to the time that the college scandals coming we follow the musical through high schools as sort of a window into these high school. So yeah yeah and in west virginia and then of course covid wiped all that out and shut everything down including our stories that we were building building building to these moments where the kids go to college. Like how's the play gonna come off all that kind of pretty straightforward narrative stuff. And now we're looking at like the sort of post covid George floyd like the impact that has had filming actually in new york city in the bronx and brooklyn well with kids. So that film. And then i'm working on a subpoena film about parole with Jesse sweet so. And then i don't know i'm always looking for stuff. Cool will ricky. Thank you so much great to finally be able to do this. Thank you thank you neck..

"More coming out. And obviously the market itself is getting flooded but for those aspiring documentarian out. There are there any distinguishing characteristics. That you think good documentaries have now. They'll allow them to kind of stand stand out amongst the fray. So now i feel like there's so many series out there and everything you know when it used to be featured docs like hbo or showtime cinemax. Whatever back in the day it was featured docs and so it's like what is the good story that can sustain for an hour and a half or and now it's like what is a story that we can tell over five parts to make you know and i think sometimes it shouldn't be five parts giving sometimes. It should be an hour and a half. You know i think sometimes stories we're getting stretched and there's a lot of pressure on still makers to find something that feels big whereas sometimes the best stories are these small stories. You know some of the films that are out there. Now that are sort of a name kademi. This a film called kunda about two black and white film about farm animals. And it's just this quiet poet poetic film and i think you know what it's doing really well filmmakers. I think we just don't looking for something different now. You never know you never know what's necessarily going ahead Which is why. I think also when you go back to like film trope of like do with this way. Is there like a journey hero story. I just would encourage people to be truthful to the story you know. If it's a palm let it be a poem you know. I always refer who referring to announce a film called iraq in fragments and it really just touched down. James longley film was nominated for academy award just touched on in iraq at the moment during war and like you live with three different. I think it's three different stories for period of time without some super narrative structure. And you just get like iraq in fragments these fragments of that world and that was enough. That was enough. And i think sometimes were Included world like. Wow you know is this gonna is are people gonna care. Is it going to have a life. Are people going to tune in and and unfortunately we have to ask those questions. Because that's how you get funding these days but sometimes it said unexpected little story than unexpected. You know maybe it's the one about truffle hunters this year or or quiet from about time or something that is unexpected in people. Are you know last year. Like the honey. What would they gave the bees. The honey keeper shoot. What was that called. Oh my gosh. It was really beautiful and Again like who. They didn't go in there thinking they're gonna get an academy began. Get kademi awards like you. Just can't go thinking about your audience per se. Have to be true story. I think that's huge last few questions. Obviously in the world of directing and filmmaking. There's a lottery sources a lot of books on the topic. Most of which are not so great for that being said were there any key volumes or resources or or just books that were essential for you and your career either from a business perspective or filmmaking perspective and wasn't certain i definitely would say no about books. I think it was just watching films The like mazel brothers. You know greg. Garden's great gardens justice Films like that or even even an war room or penna bakers films. Or i mean i kinda grew both were even you know. Gimme shelter these old films Which are all very character driven. You know they could just go along with these characters and let the stories unfold and And they were unexpected in that way and they just were filmmakers..

"Beginning. It was like high-powered zoom recordings which broke terrible. And then it was like sending them a camera that they had to set up and that looked terrible and then it was getting local crews when things opened up. And that's where we are now. I think the most successful ways you have your local crew. And if you can't get on a plane or for whatever reason your high risk as director you you can you get like a facetime or you get zoom and then they have an airline and blah blah blah. Yeah it's who we've been shooting. We've been shooting in new york. We're doing a film for hbo. We've been shooting with p. p. e. You know we get tested two days before everyone gets tested we have to submit our task and then they sent us pack some p which we just wear and protect notches ourselves protect the subjects and then the subjects can go without their masks cossio. Yeah so as a as we said irrepressible storyteller. What is it that draws you to project. i'm sure you tons of ideas and you're constantly combing everything that comes out you for their story here is what is your kind of litmus test like what specifically draws you to a project and what do you make decisions on pursuing a project based on. I mean i think early on in. May maybe it's still true. Hartley is just character. You know for me. And i think it comes from my acting background is. I'm really interested in. Who is this main subject. Who is the character. What is it that they want in their lives. What are the obstacles that they face. What is the journey. They're going to go on in this film and the story that i'm telling you know i want to see change within the character over a period of time. That's sort of the goal. The narrative has some kind of a an arc to it that feels that can be Storybook arc in some cases that were not you know But just you want to go deep with character. That's what still attracts me. Stories is like the people going through it. But then you know whether. I'm doing a film about like the boston marathon bombing and that touches on larger issues Or darfur the double kevin horseback the deals with genocide in sudan..

"She spends her own money like she works hard at her job and spends her own money in travels around to these haunted sites and tries to connect and that is what makes her interesting to me makes her feel like her journey. Her searching is authentic and real. Yeah and it's again that the character centric human element of it. All i think is what is so interesting in addition all the supernatural elements. So we have a lot of filmmakers inspiring filmmakers listening. Could you give us a sense of your origin story. How you essentially became a director. Yeah i started really in theater. And i was thinking it'd be more in the acting world of theater And went to graduate school for year and theater and then came out and wanted to tell stories and wanted to be in control and realized that as an actor i would not be in control of my destiny and Through many many jobs in new york working production working at like saturday night live which sounded glamorous but was not at all you know working on the film unit but ultimately documentaries for me as a woman Twenty three year old. I gas twenty. four Was a way to work with france. Re college in a camera that we heat. My friend had camera. Someone you know had sound equipment and we would just go and tell stories and that was for me. The way i could tell a story was to be a documentary filmmaker and not have to necessarily prove especially than in hollywood to be woman like as director. It was much more difficult than i think. Now i think it you know and The documentary filmmakers was was much more open to it and the budgets are lower ultimately. You know you can do a lot on her own can do a lot you in so that that was like my path into it. I mean i hell jobs. And i worked at. Hbo and all this other stuff. But i work on the weekends and at night making my own films. Because i never i always say like if i could paint. I would have been a painter if i could. If i could plant instrument i would have been a musician to me. Making documentaries is is my creative outlet and so when i worked at hbo As i was. I worked on the Autopsy series i as an associate producer and then as a producer of shows rudolph who was really rabbi. Now we had like some either as producer like. She was from harvard and she lasted a week. The by photographs of autopsy issues. Like i'm out But i always wanted to make my own stories. And so i would just do it when i could and you know. Sometimes it took years to make a story and your first feature neglect. Not the children ryan. It was it was. It was a film that i did about a youth program in harlem i had met..

"And they feel duped and then she gives me no defense that had i know that but also That atar being medium because there is so much information out there i mean there were moments like that where it was very helpful to have a character. Go through the doubt to be a skeptic so that we could have those moments of skepticism. We could had those moments of doubt. They came through the story. Bryson as opposed to me having to impose these there were always experts of people for example that people from the society for psychical research in cambridge in the uk. They're the ones that could be talk about skepticism. Through the through the years regarding physical mediums for example So it was helpful. I think you know you want to ask this question. You wanna have some balance that grounded the show in a railway just showing but like you said it didn't seem agenda-driven you allowed those those things that potentially could you know disprove just to emerge naturally through the story which you know as documentarian. I feel like it. All has to naturally emerge from the story agreed. Were there any concepts that That hit the cutting room floor that you really wanted to get in there. We know it's interesting when you doing. Survival it kind of veers into psychic cy kinds of work as well because you know as a lay person getting into an odd like. What's the difference if we study remote viewing or psychic abilities. Why why isn't that part of this kind of a series and and now i fully understand it but lesley was like no. You won't our stories. All are about investigating looking at the possibility of survival after death and side that sort of hugh super human or human powers of being psychic and able to read. Someone's mind or being able to take your mind and remote view. It's not about survival. And so so it really. It took me a while to sort of stay focused on.

"At researchers and doctors and scientists who are exploring investigating this potential possibility of life after death possibility of consciousness out of the outside of the physical body was never my intention to try to prove anything or not even really builds a case. I just wanted to give an audience. The best examples out there of the research. That's being done and let them the audience. Draw their own conclusions for me. It's about asking questions. And so you know but i think sometimes you know people have looked at it and since i don't believe it they didn't prove it like i'm not trying to prove anything. I just want to ask these questions. Which are compelling questions and look at these really serious minded and very accomplished doctors and scientists. Who are doing this kind of research not just in the united states at the uva medical school but around the world and so that was my interest. Yeah i mean overall it seemed to give a very regardless of what you believe. It seems like a very comforting view of death and the potential next phase. And things like that. And i feel like now's the time and a lotta people need that considering cove and considering everything that's gone gone on the world i mean with all that in mind i mean other reception. Seems like it's been pretty great. I mean i think you were number three on netflix. At one point. I mean yeah. It's it's pretty amazing. It seems like it's been the response has been great. What have you been hearing from from from viewers. Yeah at first of all. It has was like number nine in the world at some point which i was like. What in the world not spray the And that's the one. Great thing about netflix does reach a very broad audience Santa has been seen by a lot of people. People for the most part are like appreciative of thanking us for making this series They find it hopeful they You know and And they're grateful that it takes a serious approach to these kinds of phenomenons. You have people who are. I'm gonna say like couve believed this. Who invested in invested in sort of life after death and and this to them is the great example of sort of the serious nature of it and they're appreciative and then you have a lot of people who never they call themselves skeptics or non-believers. But they're like don't believe this. But i found it really moving and i feel a bit more hopeful and again like it was never my agenda..

"Ricki? Sunday morning. Welcome back here. Sunday, spin. I'm rick. Tribune here and the AllState skylines view joined by Chicago mayor candidate, Bob fioretti. Good morning. Good to be here. Thank you much. So tell me as a candidate in this multi-candidate field. I mean, obviously, it's been reduced somewhat through through the objection processes, but still how do you separate yourself from everyone? Well, I think it's getting the message out obviously in this day and age it's all about dollars and cents. But we do have a pathway. We know the amount of votes that we need to get and we're trying to stick to that path and not deviating from it. And making sure we get every vote on election day. I have to tell you though, as you know, I ran for county board. Because nobody else wanted to stand up and all of a sudden my name was bantered around. I think the polls show that we're pretty equal on on on around election day. But really nobody voted in the county board race the turnout was like twenty one percent at their points. So we need a good turnout. We have to get our close to eighty eight to one hundred thousand votes out, and hopefully, it won't be too cold or snowy day. What what is the path? Well, we know where our pockets are in wards throughout the city. I mean, it's really kind of a and this is true for any candidate really the way. This is fractured up isn't it in among constituency as well. I think in in my. Area of what we need to do. I have pockets out of every constituency. And I think if we can make sure that they get out. And I I feel wherever I go. I feel an energy because I can walk down the street and people are saying I'm voting for you. I hope and I think I think people are honest when they stopped near the street in a restaurant in a church at the forums. That we've been at the people who I don't know. But they we gotta make sure that they then get out to vote and they're motivated enough to vote in because the problem a lot of my constituency are people that are really disenfranchised with the city they feel like their wit's end there either. They can't find good educational opportunities for their kids. They're struggling to get their kids in the school. They're struggling at their jobs, and their they feel the impact of high taxes property taxes. And most of them are just saying I want to get out of here as soon as possible. They're disaffected. Yes, that's what they are. But aren't they also the ones that are harder to motivate two, then take become active in the political process. Yes. And that's that is what needs to be done to get them out. Most of them are already have a couple year plan a five year plan that saying I'm out of here. Whether it's a police officer fire firemen whoever's out there, especially in the public sector. They're all feeling that. There is a big move. I was just recently in one of the restaurants in Greek town, and I was at the back end this. I was walking out. I hit five different people from five different tables on tell me as I was walking out saying they're leaving our city, and it's all because of high taxes educational lack of educational opportunities. And a lot of them are going to Florida. Tennessee, Georgia and Texas. When obviously we know the issue about city taxes, but is there can fluence there with the fact of state taxation. Oh, yes. And I think they feel that too. I think they feel you know, these these are hard working, honest people, but they feel. Engulfed in the corruption and the and the taxes here in our city and our state, and they just don't know where to turn, and they feel the best way is how a lot of a lot of people who have kids or grandkids here in the city. They a lot of them are moving to Indiana across the border. They make it easy. So they can take the south shore work here and try to deal with their everyday life problems by moving to Indiana and Saint closer family. Well, to me, I mean education has always been a significant issue for the future of the city, especially with some of the regional occasion. As we talk about people moving out, you also have you know, younger people that want to be in. It's not cheap. Then you know, they they get married soon as they have a kid they're off to the suburbs. And I've seen that you know, when I approved, and we moved United Airlines into I still call it the series. Tower, and we moved them over. I knew that we had a younger demographics from elk grove. And I lived in the suburbs. I thought we move them here they come. And it was just the beginning of what happened in the south loop and west loop. They look out the windows and say, why do I have to go all the way up to the northern suburbs move here? And they did I would see people in Mary park a park we created and people would say, hey, all them. And I'm I'm one of the people that moved here from working at United in the Sears tower at the time, and I would say great. I'd see the same people who later this my girlfriend. We're getting married. They have a kid. Couple years later. They're moving out to suburbs. At that point. Fox's happening, and we have to see if we can keep people here. Well, how do we how do we do that one? We need a freeze them property taxes. No matter what we can't keep taxing our citizens. We've got ten point two billion dollar budget. We need to find ways to keep are taxing structure under control. Secondly, we've been opened up the educational opportunities. They should be available across the board. I mean granted the funding is now maybe helpful from the state, but it's just not enough especially in some of our neighborhoods we need to reduce crime. We because no matter where we go. People are talking they fear fear of crime. We've got we've got to try to eliminate that. And more police on the streets. More police on foot patrol bicycle patrol throughout all of our neighborhoods will help eliminate some of their but at the same time, we need to bring jobs and economic opportunity to all of our neighborhoods after school programs wrap around which are social services to help in the high crime areas at the same time, we have to reopen our mental health clinics. I think that's one of the top priorities in fighting crime here in our city. You know, we can talk about more police on the street. We can talk about adding more detectives, but we need to open up our mental health clinics. You know, here we are we going to lower Wacker, there's ten city up and down. You get off of the Dan Ryan right over at Taylor Roosevelt street. I mean, they have a massive tense city under every viaduct we need to help those folks. So they can find some sort of productive lives in whichever direction. They want. Speaking about bringing economic opportunity to the various neighborhoods, and obviously when we look at the south, and we look at the west sides. What is mayor what can the city do to spur the economic development? That's a key component ultimately in the crime and education issues. Well, it's it's bringing. Yes, it is. It is a component. You hit it right on the head. But the first thing we need to do is stabilize neighborhoods. You know, we need to create a tax rezoned in my view to bring businesses. But at the same time, we need to stabilize the housing and the affordable housing the foreclosure crisis hasn't ended in parts of our city. It's continuing we need to find ways to help people refinance homes. Get them on a steady opportunity that they can find some growth people who are still working are in foreclosure, I just had an individual who talked to me yesterday. He's got a condo down in Hyde Park. He works for for the county. He's in foreclosure can't make it. You know, these are the type of things we need to stabilize our neighborhoods. One of the more interesting aspects outta the latest tax Bill signed in Washington are opportunities owns though, those are creating development without displacement. And everybody knows. I mean, Chicago was Harvard for a lot more opportunities zones than any other city MSNBC jumped down why Chicago why Chicago, and I it's because we are really a distressed area distress city in our south and west sides, and hopefully we can have people come in develop the areas bringing jobs on you know, we have about fifty thousand vacant buildings in the city of Chicago. We ought to find ways to rehab him and bring them back to life. Once we stabilize our neighborhoods. We can have growth in economic opportunities. While knows economic opportunities owns this is kind of a private public partnership issue and allowing private developers and businesses to get a tax break for investment purposes. Correct. But I don't see anybody kind of spearheading what? You know, whether how how this should be done. Well, I'll tell you why. Because nobody knows how to do it yet. It's a. I mean, the president just signed the executive order. I think if you really a few weeks ago in December. So it took off at that point. You know, we we need to look at it carefully and make sure it's development without displacement. And that's been the aim of it. I am in some discussions with certain people throughout the that can come into the areas and see what we need to do. I think in the next two weeks. We'll be able to crystallize. This area. And I think it'll take off and help our neighborhoods. We're speaking with Bob fioretti, he's a candidate for mayor of Chicago. I'm Rick Pearson. This is the Sunday spin..

As a, talk show host like we're little heavy on the daytime talk a little bit you know I think it does make. Great sense in local markets because? You have a specific, local thing that you're. Talking about do you know what I mean that's radio still works but I don't know, I a lot of people have. Tried, it. And. It. Doesn't work Meredith Vieira Katie Kerr Harry, Connick junior canceled canceled. Canceled, yes agreed, agreed agreed. I just think, that just because Kelly Clarkson very.

Thing that's your kryptonite singer, you, certain things But let her do that stay. In your lane we don't, I don't, want to see. Kelly, Clarkson chatting it up with you know. Who, else did. Actually she had a. Somewhat successful on The Wilson. Girl, from Wilson Phillips Brian Wilson's daughter Carney we'll see remember that I mean just I just feel like just because someone has a good. Personality and they happen to sing for a living And, they happen. To be a good interview doesn't mean that they belong on daytime. Talk. That's like putting on Justin Timberlake as a host of a daytime talk. Show it's not necessary Carney was. On from nineteen ninety. Five to, ninety six I thought she was on longer came back those Ricki lake Ricki lake also she had a successful Carney show dealt with issues concerning unruly teenagers hookers this, is the.

Good interview there are people who. Trained to do that people like yourself Ceelo green. Is returning to the voice oh cool that's.

Out with a two dollars and fifty cents roughly reduction in some. See and blasted all over the internet television and radio, and the newspaper that they were reducing our water belt now that just proves to me that. These are. Really dishonest people You talking. About the city of cedar park water department did this to you No no no no no I'm talking about. Austin Dallas do right Well they do I mean there are many many people that have had the skyrocketing water Bill told stories that they call to get some answers and they. Get a rude person or a dismissive person. On. The, other, end, this, just. Not really interested in, helping them yeah Or they don't they just don't call back in a timely fashion but according. To the water department you're happy with them check this out do. Security, keys make computers, more secure well, according to Google the answer is simple yes ever since they, required.
