Talking Self-Reflection, Authenticity and Politics With Senator Liz Miranda
"I think we all project in a lot of different ways and I think self -reflection and being able to sit with yourself and ask yourself who am I right and who do I want to show up as um what is my authentic self my authentic voice you know because I think we we we have all these different roles and each role or each goal requires a different version of you in a lot of ways although you know you have your your core yes you do have to sort of switch it up so you know you could chop it up with your intimate partner and be silly and maybe curse but then you can't go to the stay house and necessarily speak to people that same way so we we always have to shift and it's exhausting like your friend said earlier like imagine you're comfortable and you have to every day walk into building where the pictures on the wall are all of old white men who have served as governors I mean thank god we have Deval Patrick and more Healy because those are the only two up in this like 300 plus year history of this state and have to tell yourself you're worthy you're enough you belong you're worthy you're enough you belong you walk with your head high because you don't know who's watching you and at the same time be feeling like you're getting punched in different ways and having micro and macro aggressions happen to you so it's not easy but I think the reset is something that you know the bet on self I really love that and to be judged by your truth those are things that I'm definitely taking away from my conversation I'm like listen so you know one of the things about coming on conversations with coach law is that everybody can go look up your bio right they can go and google you and figure it out but often they're not getting an opportunity to have these type of conversations which I think humanizes you right the real right it humanizes you and I think it allows people to be able to see themselves and see that the things that they think of weighing them down and why they're not going after their own better on self moments is like you can do it like we're not and I think entertainers often say this like people who reach a certain level of success say you know I'm just like you and you go no you're not like you're not like me you got more money you got this you got that how can you be like me and then we'll have somebody that commits suicide like Robin Williams so it's and you're like how is that possible you have people like Whitney Houston that was in so much pain and she had what you would think of as everything and and we don't think about it I often think about Bobby Brown too and amount of death and hardship and everything he's had to endure and we all have these coping mechanisms right you know I used to feel a certain way about Bobby and when he did the biography I came to a place where I had a lot of compassion and empathy for him and I really think that those two things along with grace are things that we're really missing in our society self -compassion you know I we're just too hard on ourselves and black women you know one thing we're really hard on other black women can we talk about that oh my goodness because I think part of the mental health I'm so tired of hearing women say I don't have any female friends right like I don't have any female friends I can connect better with men and sometimes no disrespect to men we can give men way more allowances allowances to be disrespectful to to mess up but we don't give that same space to us ourselves as women we are easy to cut each other and just be real funky with each other and and I've seen it happen countless times where you're like you're still breaking bread with him but then you cut me off and my I wasn't even way anywhere near egregious as as these these men yeah and you and you are like literally still cool with them fast because I'm calling you out on something or I'm not going along with the get down you you feel some type of way like I'm judging you when I'm really looking out for you

You know recall jokes that he just overheard somewhere. He didn't even necessarily remember where they came from. And they come out but he wasn't intentionally trying to rip them off you know. He just forgot worry heard it i would buy. That's entirely possible with the mind like he had and we will and i'll look further into that at the end of the episode by the way more deeply these accusations of joke thievery Sadly in the one of the things that upset robin the most was his memory failing with his lbj.

Break down what we do on these episodes. We have built halls of fame for tom. Hanks roger deakins. Nancy meyers toshiro buffoon. A monster movies and most recently george clooney. So it's time for eddie. What we doing we build. A hall is ten films from a career. No more no less. He's got forty movies so we got a lot to talk about here. I'm going to start with this. Amanda eddie murphy. What do you think. I think of multiple eddie. Murphy's i think of a lot of characters all in one movie. This is going to be interesting van. I'm really excited to talk to you about all of these because i've been listening to unsurprisingly. There are a lot of rewatch ables movies. Eddie murphy movies on rewatch bulls and i was listening to some of them in. You're on several of them. And you know i had that podcast thing where you want to respond to the person but you know it's a podcast so now you're here and it's a privilege to get to talk to you but for me eddie murphy is a little bit of. It's a generational cork for me. Because i am just. I think a little bit more than both of you and so i became kind of like movie aware movie sentient like mid nineties. Nine hundred ninety five nine hundred ninety six. And i've done a lot of catch up but if you become aware of movies in the mid nineties that means that the first eddie murphy. You get the nutty professor and then milan. And then shrek. I saw shrek in theaters. Not above it. So you know at that point. He's like the elder statesmen of comedy super established. Like i knew the beverly hills cop steam song and dance to it while before i saw it but kind of understanding him as like family eddie murphy and then catching up on everything else. Interesting chronological or not chronological murphy. Experience for me. Then you want to do your history with eddie. I know you are been living with him for a long time. Yes i have been So i hambur what year this was and i don't wanna insult my parents. Every time i mentioned my parents. I get some minor detail wrong and then i have to hear about it into along to our phone call. Your parents listen airpods today. Let's no your show's. I wish they wouldn't but that's nice. Yeah i wish they would but they My father was taking me to see a movie. We were all going to the movies but this time we were breaking it off like my father was taking me to see one of the superman movies. It's either three or four and my sister. My grandmother my mother went to see beverly hills cop two and this was my first experience with with with seeing people so jazz to see a movie because they went this way. Like we went to the superman franchise. I fell off by that point so we went this way and they go this way when they go this way. They're all of these people over there. And i'm like daddy i wanna go over here and he's i know that's too old for you. We're gonna go watch superman. And i say that because that's the moment that i actually became movie sentient by. That's the start of it. That's like what are these people into. Before that i can't tell you when i i kind of became aware of eddie murphy. Because he's like michael jackson in the sense that there was never a time. I wasn't aware of him. I was born in nineteen eighty so by the time. I start getting Information downloaded into me eddie. Murphy's a part of that he's like a part of that thing but the first time. I realized that this guy isn't just a do that. I see on tv or the guy that that he is. The biggest thing in the world is what i saw. People excited to go for it felt. So that's my that's my memory of him and it's not even necessarily what you might call one of his mega classics like beverly hills. Cop two was the event that you can remember that says a lot. And that's eighty seven net says a lot about where we were with. Eddie he was kind of in the middle of i. There are very few movie star runs in the history of movies like the one he had in the eighties. The rise to fame which starts on. Tv i guess tom hanks Robin williams maybe In terms of just successful movies maybe will in there but those movies weren't weren't quite the same as well. what is there were talking about. It's really remarkable when you think about it. There's no like they're not like high concepts with willa was like he needed to be punching an alien in the face to get to this level and like eddie movies are just like it's especially in the eighty s. Eddie is just running around doing stuff. That's that is what this movie is. He's he's being harassed whether he's a cop or he's a convict fresh outta jail or if he's a guy off the street who gets taken into financial institution like it's just it's entirely built around his persona and his sense of humor which is is unusual.

The Emergence of Private Cities in Africa
"Come to africa today. I'm excited to come back. Robin williams bothering flex. Trains ronin recently published twenty one trains twenty twenty and one that stood out for me is private cities bronwyn. Thanks for being back. What is a private says. He and how is it. Different than the city's bill houston. Let me talk about private cities. The first thing to notice that as with most trains does have some context in history and we could look back in time to the company towns that quite quite a big deal in the history of america so if you talk about small town life across the american continent which academy as sort of concept was colonized and became the american today. One of those small towns ready set up by companies sufficient based mining companies. Late on it might become big retail city towns and essentially the whole concept of a company. Town is a town that only exists. Because tequila company has decided to put its head coaches. They and what happened with a lot of these company towns to is those companies would have to subsidize the community so in fact they kind of owned so north to get workers to go move to sort of an ounce of the way out in the sticks environment of setup and make a life the company up to provide that a job they might have to provide a communities to attract workers to stay. They wouldn't be able to be self sufficient. Self sustainable business view said for example he drake's or nail salon putnam of people. You want to sit up business. The companies often have to sponsor that that came with a whole lot of pros and cons because the company obviously has been a lot more influence over that community than the culprit. Seca public or private sector should have across the most democratic community. Where that's in town and village whatever. It is such a little bit of context. Not this whole concept of private cities can become a lot more intensive but security in the modern era. The poston does age. We can look rain across the world at once. Going on in china and i'm trying to set up a lot of these massive company cities coal company towns are essentially a company workers live workshop. Learn stay at night without actually believing. The company compound and that comas be seen as slightly darkened shade privacy's it's almost more like endangered labor and in fact across the african continent of these executives that have chinese company towns popping up. They might say work places like maybe even here in south africa you have them to basically work about a working. Saint consider put that in brackets. But that's kind of what happens. The only allowed to leave the company. When you've paid back your date and once again that's also got parallels in history where you can see what happened with colonization. Once again how companies like the dutch east india company for example the british company would subsidize travelling costs so they book passage as always people got to the new colonies in this battle days. Depending on how you want to look at it and those who had been work back passage face. They were essentially sort of assigned to sanitize slave to the company until into lake At cash. not looking ahead. It becomes a lot more exciting. Because you've got eat on must for example talking about his mas cuttings. He wants to put into play where he's offering to exactly that sort of deal where is offering to pay evils passage to mas in exchange. The going to have to work that back and until you've been able to work that back. You are essentially sort of property to the company. You got a date that you have to pay and we start thinking about the company private cities particularly off planet. If you're going to get quite dramatic in the peach mas or even waiting on says starlings of space space up there. You know unlike us a space station but a privately run one. What authority are you going to defer to if you like the way he being treated what. Government has oversight in these new territories. That's exactly what happened. With the frontier company towns with the cynical colonial model of that paying passage paying back endanger lay essentially the company was given the mandate on the european space. When it wasn't a government to actually sit up the rules full that society you referred to your local politician because the politician was part of the company so they are a lot of trademarks of that depending on your political views as to how comfortable you with the slow not on the one hand people saying people would only take that deal with an anonymous go with the duchy senior company if they wanted to know what they're getting into their making a deal. People should be able to do that at the same time. Obviously huge issues of potential abuse. That can come out of this and it basically it is. It is quite a can of worms
"We're all glad to have survived. Thousand twenty the change in the us administration suggests it may be time for a different tone in how americans work on the issues our country needs to tack. But are we up. For an essay on the unraveling of america an anthropologist. Wade davis wrote for rolling stone last august. Got people talking. He joins us now from his home near vancouver. Bc to explore. America's changing role in global politics is essay is sort of like a letter to a neighbor who needs a little tough love and that neighbor happens to be a canadian anthropologist. Wade thanks for joining us. My pleasure could be with you so you wrote an article. That apparently is the most widely read thing. Rolling stone has ever published. Will it hit a real nerve. Million people read it on the site. It trended number one for five weeks three hundred and sixty two million social media impressions within two months and my visitations to my wikipedia. Site soared from a modest one hundred fifty a day to over four thousand. Just hit this nerve wrecking a none of us expected that nervous like that Little quip that's going around on the internet suggesting that to live in candidate today is like owning an apartment above a meth lab. Robin williams. Actually your essays. You say. it's a love letter. But it's a love letter called the unraveling of your neighbor america. How is it a love letter. Well i think when you have someone you love and you do. A family intervention. The most important in the first thing have to do is hold a mirror chisholm to show how far they've fallen. Because that's the first step in the path of rehabilitation and. I think that things have happened so fast. In america that in a way people look in the mirror and they still see the myth of their on exceptionalism and they don't necessarily see how far things have changed and i think kovic revealed that you know it didn't cost the country to fall but revealed to what extent the country had fallen. And i think a lot of that's just about the nature of community and i think where canada's not perfect place but it is interesting to compare the consequences of covid in the two countries way. It's it's interesting because americans. I think we take up a little bit offence when somebody from country critiques us. But we're more likely to listen to canadians. And it's so helpful for somebody to remind us that the global view of america has changed a little bit. I mean people used to look at us differently than they do now well as a great reporter for the irish times you know. They've been many motions expressed about america's since world war two but one that has never been there is there now that was pity. And that was how the world saw america's frontline healthcare workers were waiting. The arrival of emergency supplies on air lists from china. It was almost like the hinge of history opened the asian century. Pity that's something new. Another thought that. I've had is. When i if i ever refer to america's as an empire people take offense to it but we're an empire to me and empires rise and empires fall. I'm a historian and and it's frustrating to me. How unable or unwilling americans are to realize. History may be speaking to us in your essay. You reminded us how empires come and empires go. Well no kingdom expects to fall and they all do you know historically if you think in european tradition. The fifteenth century belonged to the portuguese the sixteenth to the spanish to seventeen to the dutch. The eighteenth to the french and the the nineteenth to the british. The british empire actually reached its greatest geographical extent in nineteen thirty five. But we know of course that by the end of world war two empire was bankrupt and bled white in the torch had in fact passed to america. What clearly yeah. I mean if you look at the numbers after world war two we were so dominant and comfortable thinking. We're the last great superpower. But of course as you said look at what the past has taught us and i think pretty clearly right now. There's a changing of the the torch ever further westward in it and china is emerging as the next great superpower I mean i don't necessarily look forward to that moment with any kind of The light and i think if if and when we find out that this is the fading of the american era. I think we'll be very nostalgic for the best years of that era.

No acknowledgement, no thanks for Rosalind Franklin who made the discovery of DNA structure possible
"It's the centenary of rosen. franklin's birth. This year she who made watson crick's revelation of the structure of dna possible. Her photograph of dna made all the difference and was featured in western. Play called photograph. fifty one with nicole. Kidman who else is franklin. But it was after dna. According to patricia farrer of clare college cambridge that her work on viruses and irony made work like this year's fast production of covid vaccine possible all that worth two nobel prices so far. Thank you think just portrait by malcolm. I'm watson i'm creek. Let us show. You are trick. We have found the seed of life sprang from. We believe we're stew of molecular goo with a period of thirty four angstrom. So just think this means to our respective genes that sakes did not be disgusting or you girls. Try that trick of watson and crick and achieved. Double helix lusting cheeky was recited by james watson and francis creek at a symposium in june nine hundred fifty three to celebrate the discovery of the double helix in nineteen sixty two. They received the nobel prize for this work. Along with morris wilkins. They've been basking in the glory of his saints but there was another crucial contribution to solving the puzzle of deny that of the dock lady of dna roslyn franklin. He's francis creek acknowledging homework on bbc radio in nineteen ninety nine. It was fairly fast. But you know we were lucky. You must remember. It was based off the x ray. Were done here in london. Started off by. Murray's wilkins and carried on by rosen in franklin and we wouldn't have got to the stage of least having a molecular model if it hadn't been for their work will the story is very bleak. She was naps. Brilliant x ray photographer and this was how the physical reality of the double helix model was first. Seen because wont watson and crick quarrel remodelers that that is they were abstract scientists. They were thera- titians so they were making the model as it were in their heads out of those bubbles and sticks that we all know so well which made the double helix model. What roslyn franklin's incredible achievement walls that she was a technically quite brilliant with this new and difficult apparatus of x ray photography and she showed this first image. Hilary rose from city university london. She's been a sociologist. of science. Since the mid seventy s and the image is referring to is the x ray picture taken by rosalind franklin niners photograph number fifty one. It displays a doc. Black spotty cross shape which confirmed for watson and creek. They hypothesise that. The structure of dna is in fact. A double helix. Hilary rose is passionate about rosine. Franklin's contribution and believed her story is one of appropriation and rasiah without her consent. These pictures were taken by the third noble prize winner. Wilkins and they were shown to watson and crick in cambridge and this is appropriation. I mean there are harder woods for it. A ratio of course was dramatic in the nobel prize acceptance speeches. Roslyn is by then dead. So little people forget those no question hoping for price. 'cause they not give them to the dead they given to the living so the three man. None of them acknowledged her work public. What she gets is a footnote in morris wilkin so that's the asia and you would have thought on the occasion art a such a thing as the nobel prize. The woman is dead that there would have been case for little generosity. Not a hint of a three man. Just carry on as if she hadn't existed as she hadn't done the pioneering extra work. It wasn't a pool in shabby story. And there's plenty in the history of science strong views from sociologist. Hilary rose no matter which way you look at it though. The mystery of this dark lady is intriguing author. Brinda medics was so fascinated by rosalind franklin. That she's recently completed a comprehensive biography. He she is with robin williams. Rosen franklin's family very well off for intellectual whether or not they're very wealthy anglo jewish bankers they also had a publishing firm for the sons in the family who actually were inclined to banking rutledge and keegan. Paul you're very distinguished people very proud of their heritage and they trace their ancestry back to king david the founder of jerusalem. So i mean this is a family takes its ancestry seriously and so one of the problems i think was not so much her gender but class. She sounded aristocratic to them. She spoke terribly well very clipped and some people just hated that. And it's one of the many ingredients which actually made her disoriented and not as happy as she might have made a very clever little girl. And i mean as she was growing up quite small. She wasn't very clever. Little girl and i discovered family letter from her aunt mamie. Anyway she noticed rosalyn has a six year old and she rosalind is alarmingly clever. She does her sums for pleasure and invariably gets them right and i thought that alarmingly was very significant because roseland had three brothers but the fact that the girls should be the cleverest really did
Is Suicide Contagious?
"A beloved celebrity dies unexpectedly before their time. And the headline start to quickly pile up and take over social media. But there's no real story yet. No details no explanation just click -able headline with a bunch of photos. Celebrity. Dead at forty, eight, thirty to twenty, four whatever and in the absence of any real information, a question inevitably arises. Was it an overdose or suicide? Unfortunately, I am acutely aware of what it's like when the answer is overdose. Please refer to season one for that story. But when the answer is suicide, how the story is told matters. For so long there has been cautioned around public discussion of suicide. Asking the news media think a little harder by reporting it, they could be perpetuating the story. We touched on this episode one but if media gets the message wrong and that wrong message reaches a struggling person at the wrong time, the consequences can be devastating even fatal. For example. In Two thousand fourteen after beloved comedian actor Robin Williams died by apparent suicide. And that shocking news flooded the headlines. Suicide rates went up by ten percent. This detail got repeated after another prominent suicide death we'll designer kate spade was found dead in her apartment today her death and apparent suicide. We saw after Robin Williams suicide rates went up ten percent. We Know Kate spade reportedly was infatuated with his suicide. which became part of another subsequent suicide. Relearn today we lost a friend and colleague Anthony Bourdain. Anthony is the second public figure to die this way this week. Was the first some experts point to a phenomenon? They call suicide contagion, which often happens moments such as this. And it turns out there is a long historical precedent for this. There's this phenomenon called the weather effect. Stick with me. This won't take long. It is a fancy literary version of the outdated term copycat suicide. And it comes from this seventeen seventy four to novel called the sorrows of Young werther the book spoiler alert and with the sympathetic hero or they're dressed in a blue code and yellow trousers shooting himself after being rejected by someone he loved. In the years that followed so many young men were found dead having shot themselves while dressed as werther that people freaked out and banned the book in several countries. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two, when Marilyn Monroe died. The following months were filled with extensive coverage about her apparent suicide. which led to widespread sorrow and an apparent twelve percent uptick in suicides. These are obviously massive national reactions to the loss of our beloved heroes and icons. But you see the same thing happening in communities or someone dies by suicide. All of sudden, you have to worry about the other people in town. Or the kids in the schools. And it brings us to this very complicated question is suicide contagious. This question of course has been plaguing us this whole project not just because we're talking about suicide. But also if I didn't know, we are doing it in the midst of a global pandemic where community spread is all we're talking about. So is it as simple as that? Is suicide something you can catch and if so. How do we protect ourselves. Like. What's the equivalent of a mask for suicide? I'm Stephanie Woodall's Wax and this is last day. We knew early on that, we wanted to talk about contagion but truth be told we didn't totally get what it meant for suicidal thoughts to transfer. Is it like. Flipping a switch not suicidal one moment suicidal the next. And that's how we were thinking about it. Until we heard this. Every morning I wake up and I make agenda for the day. I love plans I love knowing my options. In sixth grade when the first suicide cluster happened in my community when we lost more than three people in one year. It was the first time that suicide became on my list of options when I was going through a problem. I feeling, Sad, one day I think through what the options were. NAPPING, think about hanging my friends I thought about taking my own life I thought about going out. On my list of what I could potentially do to help. Figure it out in solve it. This is Lisa. How speaking at a jet event a few years ago. And when we watch this video something clicked. We knew we had to talk to her. Can you tell me a little bit about yourself like who are you? WHO IS LISA? Yeah. So that's such a hard question sometimes answer. It makes sense that this is a tricky question for Lisa because a lot has changed in a short period of time. Today Lisa is twenty two and she just graduated from college. She's about to start a theory impressive job as an engineer at a little known company called Apple. But. In sixth grade, she was in a very different place at the center of what is probably the most commonly referenced example of suicide. Contagion. Lisa was a student at gun, high school. In Palo Alto California a school that comes up again and again when you start to dig into the concept of suicide. Contagion

The 2 Choke Points in Selling and their 3 Causes
"Hello and welcome. My name is Greg. Martinelli and this is the egg sales professional podcast. The purpose of this podcast is to make you the best salesperson or sales manager possible in agribusiness today we're talking about the to chokepoints in selling and their three causes. which part of the sales process are you stuck on well? Every manufacturing, process, service, provider or business unit has a choke point. Point. Every salesperson also has them in their selling process and a choke point is the number one limiter in process. It's the one process that one service or that one step in your selling strategy that holds up all the others. Last time we covered the topic of stress more specifically. We covered your stress. The egg sales profession who goes out on a daily basis and calls on. On livestock and crop producers today we're going to cover one critical cause of your stress, and that is the chokepoint in your selling process in a feed mill. The chokepoint is typically the pelleting and drying process of the pellets in a grain elevator. It's the speed of the dump pit, and possibly drying grain. In what year in many manufacturing process. It's the packaging line in other words. Words you can process potatoes into potato chips fairly easy, except for the last step, which is putting in a bag and putting in a box that may take maybe the choke points what slows everything else down working with sales, people in all different aspects of agribusiness I can tell you. The most common points are prospecting and closing if you look at the selling process in a linear. Linear fashion it might go something like this fine prospects on them. Ask questions present products and services close follow up complete the new customer paperwork train them on how to use the products and services coordinate future orders, and then provide ongoing support to ensure a long term relationship with your customer that might be including handling complaints and expanding the purchases with your company last mentioned the most. Most common chokepoints are prospecting enclosing have also found there are three common causes, and they are lack of knowledge, a lack of skill in a lack of value. We'll start off with the first. One lack of knowledge is the easiest remedy. oftentimes a sales person just doesn't know the steps involve or how to implement them with their customers. DISC is a great example if you're not familiar. Familiar, you should be I. Talk about it all the time I. Think it's Great. It isn't a four quadrant system or D I S C, or sometimes they use colors to depict the four quadrants typically salespeople set out in their territory and sell based on their own style. The problem is the customer doesn't want you to sell in your style. They want you to sell in their. Their style for example, if a salesperson is a data techie, Kinda person, they love to fill the presentations with data they sell on data, even if their customers hate data and technical infant, information will sales, people can remedy this with training, workshops, sales, meetings and experience to increase their knowledge and open up this chokepoint. Let's get to the next chokepoint and that is a lack of skill. This in this example, the salesperson knows what to do. They just aren't very good at it yet. And the yet is an important part of that sentence. Many salespeople fail to implement what they know they need to do. Because they're either afraid of making a mistake or they will look incompetent. Many of them worry. They will appear pushy or the worst being sales. -I, so they stick to their old ways of doing things. You need to become comfortable. Comfortable with trying new techniques to improve your skill. Let me give you an example in the sports. World Golf is a great example of a lack of skill. It's a very simple game. If you think about you, take a little club. You hit a ball down the fairway and into a Little Cup. Eighteen Times as Robin. Williams pointed out one of his comedy routines. It's not rocket science. However, it can take a lifetime to develop that skill how? How do we develop the skills? Well, certainly, when you know, have some knowledge how to hold the club and all that Kinda stuff, but most importantly we just need to get out there and golf and put it into practice and develop our skill in sales cold. Calling is a great example when it comes to the lack of skill as a sales person you know of your roles is to find call on and sell new customers, however when you. You get out there the fear of meeting someone new kicks, in and you stumble on connecting or asking good questions on the sales call the socializing part at the opening of the sales called goes well. Then you start asking a few questions related to your products and try to get down to the business of selling you get stuck on what to ask and fear upsetting the prospect, so you go back to the social discussions on weather and crop. and. Local events etcetera. You gain little to no information which would help you. Come back for your next appointment. You are now stuck in that called. Let me know if you ever need anything or any of our products, which is right next to I'm happy with what I'm doing now I'll keep you in mind zone. We all get stuck in these zones, and they are no fun. We'll the last cause for a choke point in your selling process might. Might, simply be a lack of volume, not enough prospects, not enough good prospect, not asking enough good questions, not asking enough closing style questions, not following up enough, nor fast enough and dropping the ball with a lack of good prospects is a very common limiter. I see sales people
Dante Basco Discussed Landing the Role of Rufio
"You work asked. How did how did that come about like you had started out as a dancer one of your first credits is in moon-walker. Yeah yeah me. And my little brother Dion. We're in Walker. I was actually his understudy in moon-walker and we did the bad video but we did the kid. Bad video friends would allow those kids today. I mean mercer tantrums in the video. She's like the executive producer showrunner of of fails to share. We've known each other since we were like twelve. The way dancing works. You have the casting you have to have a cast like exact behind them because people get hurt all the time when you dance so we did that. We Young. We're gases when he came to L. A. But when I did hook the pretty remarkable thing about hook is so my little brother. Dion hadn't auditioned for another character in the movie. And I remember calling my managers when he got the addition. Because we're like you gotta give me an audition for this movie because you know the one thing we knew is it's Robin Williams playing grownup Peter Pan. And you're like that had captured the imagination of the world like. Oh my God like Robin Williams is Peter Pan. That's who he is. And so we were all excited about the movie and Spielberg and and whatnot. And so I ended up getting audition for other character. Rubio we know in these characters are and then my other brother. Dr Ian got an audition for Rubio too so we both went in together. This the thing about being brothers L. A. And Act against all audition and continue against each other and to this day and it's like was the TV show like last season where they're like. Oh it's between you and your brother during both on the board like whatever like was going to get it so good like but we've all trained together and go of the process understand that you're not really in competition with each other you know but we've been through a lot as brothers and different these days almost be really close. Yeah I mean it's hard to be Asian actor in. It's hard to be an actress. La I always say it's hard to be an actor in La. Probably want hard jobs in the world as far as to work and then on top of that it's hard to be an ethnic actually and within the ethnic spectrum it's hard to be Asian ethnic spectrum and even within the Asian spectrum to be Filipino. That particular Asian is super strange. The people because they're like are you. What kind of Asian Asians that? We wrote this role for you like a brown skin kind of are you. So why are you so ten and then even within that little like Filipino? It's like it's you know I'm one of four brothers that are like very close in age like you're the boss brothers like at our performance that our performance that we're all here in the audition so it. I've lived a very unique experience except where I've brothers that lived with me. Oh we are definitely going to ask you about one of the few experiences. You had playing a specific Filipino. American character in the great debut debut But I I want to ask you lower living in this hook. Moment your audition you said before that in a way your upbringing in paramount helped you in. Yeah House. The unique thing about that particular project is I went in on me and my brother both went in. We put the auditions on tape with the with the Catcher in Jefferson. There's a picture of that day too. We both dressed up like how he thought loss was addressed up. I remember like bracelets on this. Weird like floral shirt and so We had the addition and then I got a call back like the eight my managing like. Oh so Steven Spielberg wants to meet you. So I went to Amblin which is on the universal lot in the whole lot. All great but there's like this one sections like Spanish villas like that stevensville offices. We went there and this is like before. Ps Ten does like here. Like a mall arcade in his office which is crazy and so we're they're playing video games and he brings me in and then he doesn't even me again we talk. We talk about a lot of stuff you talk about rats so Rizzo and talked about Dustin Hoffman. Because I know his playing hook at that time and we talked about films we talk about other things I did and then do you want me to read. He's like no no. You're good I just wanted to meet you and I was like what I walked out. My mom had to go. I don't think I got it like I read. You know and then a few days later they offer me the part which wild so read the part one time. When I was on the set I remember sitting on the pirate ship and I was like. Hey Steven like never auditioned like read the roll one time and someone offered me the job. How did that happen and Steven was like Yeah Dante. Like at of all the kids we. You're the only kid that scared me. And but you know when I think about it now inside. I'm living in paramount right. And this is ninety one. You know kids were getting shot in my school. Like my best friend. Like one of our friends got killed his girlfriend. There was like guns everywhere drugs. We you know there's like life and death situations going on every day. There was like a big race war blacks breast of Mexicans. Where where what side are you on? Oh we need to get out of here at lunch or like you know it's going down and when you're dealing with like that kind of environment to degree the lost boys gang. I just the leader of the gang and so I think some of that was you know brought to the surface when doing the character and I think that kind of resonated with Stephen. I think that Kinda helped my the whole thing so
"Daddy okay. Hook the nineteen ninety-one cult favorite reimagining of a Peter. Pan Lor starring Robin Williams. And Don Bosco you are. I'm just GONNA cut right to an icon. Come on come on man and you have been ever since this this role Rubio and we have so many questions for you. But we're going to start is what has revealed meant to you over. The course of the time. I mean is changed over the years. I did Rouphael when I was fifteen. Start when I was ten before was an actor. I was I'm from me and my brothers from the bay area right. And we're all artists and actors and musicians and poets and we start as break group in the Bay. Area called Street freaks. We popular was in the bay area. Kid You know grew up going to forty niners games in Oakland as games and we ended up dancing for the forty niners and the Oakland A.'s. Halftime shows thirty. Four thousand six hundred that kind of stuff then. We got scholarships the Ballet Company ballet and so we start studying ballet and it was like a real billion Elliott thing kids from St that they picked up and start the world ours and so like being an actor. Artists has been in my family's story since my earliest memories of whatever we were doing you know and so by the time I was fifteen and did hook it was like I mean I was you know somewhat prepared for it because I was studying acting for so long and studying the greats and then I was very much whereas work with greats worked with Spielberg maybe at the height of his powers. Dustin Hoffman is. He's on the Mount Rushmore of the actors. That changed the face of acting the seventy S and whatnot. You Got Robin. Williams is the Godfather improv acting. In one of the great you know give me. The list goes on Maggie. Smith said Bob. Hoskins is like every day is like what's going on here and so I was really prepared to just really do a great job but that never prepares you for character lasting twenty five years later. It's like now I've been Rubio longer than I haven't been Rubio. You know so you know you walk around. And now it's like it means something different to a whole generation as people tattoos of your fifteen year old face on their body crazy. Which you've seen with your I've seen with my own eyes. I've signed people's bodies at kamikaze tattooed on you know. And they name their kids after Rubio and their dogs after Rubio and it means something to just the people at large as far as like this rebel spirit you know and then in mean something completely different to a whole generation of Asian Americans where I get a lot of like. You're the first cool Asian that I ever saw on television as exactly what I was about to say. It's you and I'm dismayed that you hear so often not here and again when you're young you don't really think about it when you big movie in your teenager like even though I was like a trained actor and a pretty solid artists at fifteen is like I just WanNa be cool like plea at the for. The love of God can come out on Friday in theaters and when I go to school on Monday. Ken like some people. Think I'm cool. Where are you going to school at that point in in southern California I was going to school in Southern California? I was in high school Limit town called paramount. And it's right. You know right next to Compton. The crazy thing was this is the nineties s in we got into some trouble me and my brothers in the middle of shooting Hook. We got caught shoplifting. At Serena's mall yes. I needed some isotoner gloves. We needed some isotoner. Glove would use gloves and southern California. I don't know Jerry Rice War on I duNno had some is anyway. We got caught. My parents got so and again when you grown up in the neighborhood and paramount which is like site content but it's more Mexican than black and it's you know gang violence in the nineties and we have friends run drugs. Everything's a lot going on in your young mind like shoplifting is nowhere near anything else going on a neighbor but we got popped. We got in trouble and I was actually in the middle of shooting. Hook which is super strange and the guy that Catis history does mall was like watching. Because he'd seen me in a movie called perfect weapon he's like that's that do from perfect weapon and then. Oh my God. He's they're stealing isotoner gloves So we ended up getting bused to Orange County and started and finished our school at Orange County. The and then I was there when the hook came out. So it's kind like I was a kid in school and the movie came out and I went from a school. I was like predominantly black and Latino to a school in Orange County. That was I think there was twelve black kids in school And like it was like predominantly white. We were like. What are we doing here so that was a school that was that you were in? Hook was coming. Yeah that was I was in when he came out and I was. They thought it was cool. I mean we were cool are here with me and my brother like three. Brown brothers walking around campus with high hair and Super Hip hop kids and then the big movie comes out. And you're like that kid from that movie. I kinda always wished I was in my old school when it came out. Because know you get the extra On the hometown new school. And it's all weird already now. Super
