"Used to always think the key west was the boyfriend of the dry Tortuga. Try Tortue guys. And there's another one in the middle Am I think but anyway? It's the second to the very last one I think of all the cloud and it's it is it was at one point. The largest piece of masonry in the Western Hemisphere was so huge. But yes I've been that sal. It's really why he was there for a long time. I don't remember how long he was there. You can find the peace on Youtube. It's it's really interesting really pulled together. People go there and like scuba dive. Yes snorkeling yeah really. I can't scuba diving. I use the oxygen to quickly panicking. Yeah just inhaling deeply right and snorkeling I it doesn't require any tanks or anything to you doesn't I just I don't. I'm not very good at it. I can keep the thing straight or I don't I don't really anyway. I just need to work on it. I guess you enjoy outdoor things. Do you enjoy it. Yeah Yeah I mean why I only I should do more. I need to take more time off and become an outdoorsy person before before it's too late for CBS Sunday morning. Do you often do assignments? You travel a lot for it. Why did go scuba diving or was it snorkeling in Mexico because there was an underwater sculpture garden thing that I went to? That was Kinda cool. Cancun I wasn't a hustle. Competition by hustle the dance outdoorsy physical. It's physical love gymnastics in many ways. What do you so you travel for most episodes due for CBS Sunday morning? I do about twenty features a Europe. Yeah enjoy that going around. You love it. It's like going back to college and taking only electives. It's nice being on a show. That's not so dependent on the hard new cycle. We address stuff. That's going on that people you know we trust politics. But that's you don't love it. They they they have mixed feelings about it. They don't want us to ignore it completely. Dump do I think I do stories on a whole range of things right now about to? I'm working on a story. It was just on a plane reading a biography of Peggy Lee. He gets his hundred birthday. You mentioned that on one of the shows I think. Oh you know you mentioned on the Lawrence Welk yes. He has one hundred. Big North Dakota riffing hold. Somebody came to me and they said Peggy. Lee's daughter is wants to cooperate and to a piece in her mother apparently had this extraordinary archive of people through the years and she was also songwriter. But that spanned all these musical generations that I think don't hold me to this but I think like Paul McCartney would come over and yeah or you know them singing ripping on things so. I'm really excited to dive into this. Forgive my ignorance. Did she die. Young Peggy Lee Shingai that Young Peggy Lee die about twenty years ago I think in. Yeah and Yeah so she was. She lived to be an older. I mean I think she'll live close to eighty. I'm not sure. But but she was from his tiny town in North Dakota coder. You mentioned some other people from Dakota at the Wiz Khalifa. I think was supposed to go to bed. Mama right. Yes good Mama's I remember the Leonard Mountains. Movie Book was very important to me. Hit a book of a movie critiques. And and I was so I just reading the word. Nudity in a description about was was Kinda titillating for me at the time. I remember And Big Bad Mama I think had I think the word nudity. How old are you twenty nine. No I was. I was a kid I was so it was nineteen eighty ten things. Were your parents pretty. Strict about what Jim Catholic which you were as well and You are as you continue. And so yeah but I wouldn't say we can watch R. RATED MOVIES. We couldn't They but at the time we didn't have cable or anything it was pretty without the Internet was. I don't think kids understand how easy it was to shelter kids from stuff like that. I think you're right but I kind. Of In retrospect should've light having a strict upbringing. I kinda how. Well I don't know it kind of made things even more tantalizing. Oh Yeah and my parents. Such control over my TV diet really where they tried to exercise and it kind of made it more exciting to try to evade those restrictions. Like get through and watch things that I wasn't supposed to watch. And what would be considered off-limits than anything you know in. Sitcoms portrayed what my parents thought was sort of immoral behavior right like out of wedlock sack. Something put it like that now right acquaintances you know but I I. You know young so my father set up this. I mean it's really Kooky when I think about it this sort of that. I could watch one hour of inappropriate. Tv A week only murder one person Burbank. Yeah TV room springer and so it it. I it was Dallas Quest Dallas for the Dallas. Kind of jump the shark then. I switched over to dynasty but that was on I was like I have to watch dynasty. That's the I know you were into. Charlie's angels yes. Charlie's interested parties sort of pass. It I don't think we were pretty sure that we were not allowed to watch. Charlie's angels have been but but the thing is that the angel didn't have like salacious private lives. They just did the class right. And that didn't interest you. Well it interested me like like gay kids love. Charlie's angels for a reason. So that was. That's a whole different so they loved it but it was like but more like. Oh my God. It's so exciting. Like right. Pretty good I was just my my friend. The same one with me. Fonje has a fourteen month old daughter and And she was. She picks up little words from from Shows that she watches and stuff and she was from big bird. She got a word from big bird at a site or something like that. It was some very kitschy. Sounding delivery was a very we. Were talking about Characters and pop culture who we who now would be considered gay. Suppose but at the time but they weren't allowed to say that really wasn't allowed her in Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer who just wanted to be a dentist but when you consider how he sounded in the things he was saying how he felt out of place so there is a gosh talk about bad memory. One and I'll remember it in a few moments but there's a term for these characters. The ZANIES my friend Eric near WHO's so smart was we were talking about the. Who was talking about like Charles? Nelson Reilly. Paul Rip Taylor Poland Poland and these were known collect. These were known by a lot of people as the Zanies was done a little bit with a wink public. At that time. Most people didn't really most people didn't know openly gay people to people like Paul Land and Charles Nelson Reilly would be put into these roles that they would be playing husbands fathers but it was always kind of an heightened exactly and and and some people said this is very you know maybe not. Pc or some people might be bothered by this but in a way they wouldn't really be able play those roles now because they be known as gay it'd be it'd be a little trickier right. It brings up a whole host of other issues been away. I'm not arguing to go back time. Yeah figured all day clear the but it was kind of a kind of a weird moment because those roles wouldn't really exist today they wouldn't be cast that way Sir and they certainly wouldn't be yeah. Of course they wouldn't have fam- I mean they would have they would have families are much different way and not as quote unquote conventional And Jim J. Bullock. I'm now I'm thinking host of yeah. Yeah they were watching. The shows were like right but if they turn to their straight brother or sister and said Oh that guy's probably homosexual they place. What are you talking about Ryan? They wouldn't get that he's just funny. He's just he's Dany. Yeah that's interesting. Well I remember a rip Taylor who also I think recently passed away his thing and it's interesting to reduce people to this and and I'm sorry to do that which is again one of the things I love about your show. You you took a figure like Jimmy Carter's Billy Billy cutch. Carter's brother and you humanized him in a way that I I certainly I think a lot of people would be surprised by an. It's it's it's also very respectful. You do But I was just about to say about rip Taylor. He's the guy that threw confetti right. You know it's amazing too to have. And he was a popular figure entertainment What's that that is war? Maybe a same sort of same thing. And maybe more towards the Liberace end of the spectrum. That right like the like like I suspect that what somebody's flamboyant as rip Taylor and liberace more people got it. More people were like. Oh that guy's gay. They probably would have used the word homosexual back. Then right yeah but and and the joke even then probably was. That only elderly ladies were you know. Were doting on them is that they were potential husbands to their daughters. Were the only ones who didn't get it. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Maybe most people didn't get it expert hard and again i. It's it's interesting to examine some of these historical in that context. Today we know a lot more about much more liberal time. I'm thinking about Thomas Paine because I just heard the episode what made him so abhorrent to so many people you know. I'd fascinated by that and you you. You are seem to be as well I I'm interested in in well. In the case of Thomas Paine who wrote commonsense being the intellectual justification for the crisis right racist and did all these amazing things but only six people showed up to his funeral. And amazing is you know. Part of it is that he had a really difficult personality and instrument. I mean that's something I feel like. Everybody can relate to people who are difficult to get along with Have a steeper hill to climb. I mean shows I've been on my remember. I'm remembering when I when I was on the daily show when Jon Stewart was the host and there was a correspondent who is being tried out. And I'll never forget this early on. I'm not gonNA name you she's Woman woman who'd been taken out to do a field shoot me with the show and the producer came back into the office Having just worked with this perspective correspondent doing a piece and the boss. The big boss walked in and said to this producer. How was she and the producer who was a woman said you know she was kind of a pain in the ASS. Like Sheikh spent a lot of time worrying about our makeup. She's paying the ass and the Boston fine. We won't use her again and one telling you. It made an impact on me. Because I was young. I'd never been on TV. Never wear makeup again pulled off false eyelashes. I'm done I'm going. Oh Nashua rally break and to this day well now. I'm wearing a little but I'll never forget that I thought. Wow if somebody had said that about me. Just be easy to take the important to be easy to take. And that saying that took part of Thomas Paine being a pain in the Anne yeah brought us to breaking from the crown is right he was he was uncompromising and that's important but it is also interesting the role. I think that personality give both their do credit. I think The first being the the former being that I didn't realize that the states all thought of themselves as so independent that there was no. He was the first to kind of galvanize. All those states and and describe An almost create an American narrative will right he rebranded toward reckon before that before the revolution American was basically defined as cracker hillbilly. Yeah and and and Marylanders were Marylanders Virginians Virginians and you know they were all resentful of the crown. But Thomas Paine say well good. Let's all together as one nation. We're not going to be thirteen different nations when we break. We're going to be one and we'll be Americans and rebranded.

"Recently Christian directed our first movie feature film and it was a little intimidating talking to some of the very talented actors. We convinced to do the film. One of whom was Patrick Duffy? Patrick is an actor that Christian and I watched while we were growing up step by step day by day. We loved Patrick Duffy and On that show and when he came to said he could not have nicer very cool for us and I asked him kind of gingerly. Because I didn't want to be condescending or disrespectful in any way and I said At the movie took place in Savannah Georgia and so I said Patrick. Are you comfortable? We'd love to have just a touch of a southern accent. Is that something that you're okay with? Are you comfortable doing that? He stared at me as neutral as he could be. He was like yes. Well I I was on shook out Dallas for sixty years so comfortable fairly could be a dream life. Good being a you're listening to life is short. I'm your host justin long and injuring sweetheart. Did show with me as always is a definitely now always Mike Quarantine quarantine buddy quarantine mate Christian. I feeling better. What stop bring you on my health? Well ABC people are now aware of it. Feeling a little maybe clearing your throat a few times that's the last lingering vestige of this. Yeah it's it's stuck in my chest a little bit but that's not the last symptom. I have no other. Kobe symptoms now up again. We'll but I hate talking about it because now the more I talk about in the more I realized how fortunate I am version of it that I've had of course and that's why it was really embarrassing that it was at all in the news because it was taking up space and people's attention from far more imminent there are people who are obviously are dying and people who are surreally really suffering from it. I was not neither of us. Were thankfully thankfully. It wasn't pleasant right but it but it certainly wasn't wasn't remotely label of where I won't bring it up again but if I clear my throat that's what it is that it's because I have some garbage in my chest okay and cabbage of course if you're from Massachusetts you know that that means garbage. Yes so stuffy Patrick Duffy. As soon as I said that felt I felt idiotic of course and he was very nice about that guy could not use such a gentle. What a sweetheart of a man Patrick was was very patient and he was definitely patients about that about me not realizing that he could do a southern accent. Patrick he wasn't insulted not at even though easily. Yeah he's not the show for sixteen not just not just on the show but One of the leading conic show. Yeah it was a very famous show. I remember our mother was really into that show and Patrick himself. Shoes to like we would watch step-by-step as we mentioned we watch an episode of last night and God. I haven't seen that show since I was a kid. And it's it's he's so handsome in good in it. I just remember thinking but when we watched it as kids remember thinking oh he's like an old guy and the last one. I was what he's Dad. He's like an older debt and last night. I was watching it like. He's like my age. Yeah he's a young guy young handsome guy. Handsome Yeah Are we talking about Patrick Duffy? Well I'll tell you why because our guest today was like many of you maybe or your parents or your grandparents was a huge fan of Dallas the TV show not. I don't know about the baby. The baby yeah in fact I think he did mention the city I think he does like the city he worked. He did mention the city he worked on. Anyway we'll get to that but yeah both fan of a huge fan of the city but a bigger fan of the show our guest today you know of course because You know him to be a big Fan of Dallas. Mo- RAKA MO is a humorist What else it's hard to describe. Here's a humorist general umbrella that I think he would fall yeah he. He became famous on the daily show as a correspondent years ago John Stewart since then he is. He is become a commentator on. Cbs Sunday morning. He does human interest stories every every week. It's every Sunday it's Cbs Sunday morning and it was always the job that that was like a dream job for me. It was one that Charles Kuralt for years had he would basically go around and do human interest stories throughout the country. He would go from usually in smaller towns and it was just something I always like fantasized about. I thought it'd be such a cool job to have an mo does that. Now he's he's he's filling. Charles Kuralt's legendary shoes and filling them so well Filling them out. He's wearing new shoes and he has a podcast that you like that. I haven't heard yet but I would say listen to mobilize and I also am halfway through his book. Mobilize the PODCAST is based on the book and there's a lot of stuff In the book that's not in the podcast and vice so I would recommend both of them. It's basically about. He looks at certain forgotten or maybe overlooked historical figures and he gives them a proper obituary. It's the it's just the the best and it is it's so good and he puts his Very humorous spin on things. But it's also more than that. It's just so informative and it's such a fun. Read the book and it's such a fun podcast. Listen and it had. You met him before you did this. Yeah we we met a couple of months earlier remember. Had you met him before that? That was brief interaction. I'm trying to remember where I know. He was friends with my friend. John Hodgman with whom I did the MAC PC commercials and so. I think I've met him through John Years Ago. I I I saw him once at a like a screening for something he was with Scott Rudin and so I was very nervous. Scott Ruins a big Hollywood producer. Could make or break a career so I was really like never made your broken make or thankfully break but Most somebody that I've always admired. And he's such a great intellect and Such good humored person. I've always really liked him so there are a few subjects that I bring up and so I just want to give a really brief some context. Quick one of the episodes one of them obituaries episodes is about Thomas Paine. One of the founding fathers a often forgotten founding father and its ties into a place that we we can talk about this afterwards right. Yeah okay. 'cause you also conceptualize it in. The pain was the how the only six people came to his funeral. Father All right. You did all okay. Yeah it's totally unnecessary. Bring Chang. Yeah and you talked about their sex life Saturday. Ten kids kids took turns. It doesn't matter. The whole thing should be doing this. Totally should not okay. All right here we go so without further. Ado. Don't you hate saying that I do? So whenever I say your idea but a right to really lean into kind of make fun of it. Yeah one other words you do do that so I'm sure there's other things I do with. I never just say without further ado I do. It's also because I don't speak friends. Yeah and I never studied French so I feel like a poser. When I oppose year so visit visit at Jia my condescencion Avec conned intellects with Mo Rocca. Coming UP NEXT SWEETHEART IN KEVIN. Bacon was on the show a little while ago.

Majority of women who have an abortion don’t regret it five years on

"I. as we talk about how things are changing in society of abortion that has come up in the news I remember years ago we would talk about how if young women chose to abort their child and didn't get the support they needed that I regret and that many women might make the decision to hastily aboard and then years maybe four ever regret that they lost a baby or feel haunted by that figure that the aborted all this study kind of the spells that and this study was published Sunday in the journal social science and medicine researchers found that are five years after having an abortion only six percent expressed a primarily negative emotions the overwhelming majority of women surveyed eighty four percent had positive emotions no emotions whatsoever about their version decision even if they hadn't felt that way when they were making the decision to have an abortion now get one this is a study where people do their surveys I mean there's no way to tell if somebody was you know filling it out in hopes of appearing in a certain way but we usually screen people fill these surveys out to be as honest as possible just over half the women in the survey said the decision to terminate the pregnancy was very difficult twenty four seven percent said it was somewhat difficult forty six percent said it wasn't a difficult decision at all that concerns me nearly seventy percent said that they thought they would be stigmatized if people knew they had an abortion the women said they struggle with the decision or felt stigmatized by it were more like a chore for Philly guilt anger or sadness immediately after the abortion over time these feelings declined dramatically sometimes even one year after the abortion going to see and then they said the top emotion of all the groups of women in the study said that they felt relief relief was an emotion used to describe how they felt each time they were asked about it I know that's open to a lot of discussion for some of us who are pro life that kind of hurts that definitely it's a string you know I mean I'm sure there's a lot of people in our lives where we would be relieved if they weren't a part of our lives when you talk about a baby and to hear that they were relieved to not have that baby anymore are the idea that baby being alive is is concerning but I don't think that's exactly the way these women were describing it as I think it was the dilemma of being pregnant having to deal with the pregnancy and now not having to deal with it anymore but again still strikes a chord in those are for life researchers came to this conclusion after serving a thousand women following up with them eleven times over a period of five years they surveyed women lived in twenty one states a week after they had an abortion and then again every six months thereafter over the past couple decades researchers say there had been an assumption that women will regret having an abortion and an increasing number of states require counselling and waiting periods before woman can have an abortion so in some states you can't just go you know what I found I got pregnant go head to go out and literature has suggests that counselors give some states require counselors to give a woman before having an abortion what what does this say there's a literature that some say there's a typo in this I I barely Anthony Kennedy just as something heavy in his office is car that I felt the restriction of a woman's right to certain abortion procedures says it seems on acceptable to conclude some women come to regret their choice to bore the infant life once they create insisting researchers say the results of the study proves that notion as a myth they say all the claims that negative emotions will emerge over time a method is process for decades without any evidence to substantiate the claims it's clear and not just for okay and that comes from Korean Rocca an epidemiologist at this is a professor in the department will be gone and revisit the sizes at USC so there was other studies that said that abortion do not contribute to feelings of records and most women well the regrets like they had suggested depends on how you think you'll be stigmatized and so is the country's de stigmatizing net and my guess is that a decade or two they're going to be even empowering women there's going to be kind of an abortion power what is it called it's called reproductive freedom reproductive freedom I think I get to exercise reproductive freedom you get pregnant and you get to exercise and in that pregnancy see I thought reproductive freedom is you get to choose who you want to reproduce with not killing the child when I look at it is Kelly whether you're pro choice or pro life when you stop a heart beat that's a kill that's causing death I am pro choicers well some of them will even agree that is the killing or ending of life so to me whether you think it's going to become a whole person or not you are indeed a heartbeat you are killing something I never have an abortion you know I made that decision very early on I was right I just for me I just don't think it's a baby's fault yes in all things could affect my life it could affect my career but I I if I got pregnant I just look at it is there was a reason for that's me I would never install that on somebody else so for me I would deal with the guilt now maybe I would do with guilt because a religious what if somebody isn't religious or they you know feel empowered or they don't feel stigmatized they will be less reluctant to regret and so you know it's all to look at the study and agree with the researchers say most would be fine I don't know that they don't abortion wouldn't be such a controversy wanna be such an issue of only talking about maybe five or six year we're talking about hundreds of thousands of abortions a year and I'm blown away that in the year two thousand twenty we don't have enough means for women to get birth control I know people say well also incest how many cases of this is actually happening of early like to know that I understand rate there's lots of rapes going on I get that five arm but you know why hundreds of thousands a year we have hundreds of different types of birth control we have education out there we have condoms and when you hear that people are using abortion as a form of birth control I do think we're doing something wrong in society I don't think it has a lead to that and I do believe that both sides of the aisle if you talk to people who are pro choice or liberal I think many will agree yeah we don't really need you know that is a high number if everybody could just stop with the politics and go look you know can we address the unwanted pregnancies can we address sex without protection I mean STDs are on the rise the these tender these are hook ups tender is eight app that's what the young people are telling me I thought okay you to meet somebody and date and you know there's I guess his engine you know there there's there's now there's dating apps for more serious but I'm hearing tender is just strictly for you know I just wanna have sex well no wonder STDs are on the rise no wonder were having hundreds of thousands of abortions being done here this is twenty twenty I mean we should be we should we should have this thing licked already nobody should be getting pregnant or doesn't want to be if you're getting pregnant by accident and then you have to kill the baby and I'm sorry I know people don't like me saying that but your anger stop in a heartbeat that's

Majority of women who have an abortion don’t regret it five years on

"I. as we talk about how things are changing in society of abortion that has come up in the news I remember years ago we would talk about how if young women chose to abort their child and didn't get the support they needed that I regret and that many women might make the decision to hastily aboard and then years maybe four ever regret that they lost a baby or feel haunted by that figure that the aborted all this study kind of the spells that and this study was published Sunday in the journal social science and medicine researchers found that are five years after having an abortion only six percent expressed a primarily negative emotions the overwhelming majority of women surveyed eighty four percent had positive emotions no emotions whatsoever about their version decision even if they hadn't felt that way when they were making the decision to have an abortion now get one this is a study where people do their surveys I mean there's no way to tell if somebody was you know filling it out in hopes of appearing in a certain way but we usually screen people fill these surveys out to be as honest as possible just over half the women in the survey said the decision to terminate the pregnancy was very difficult twenty four seven percent said it was somewhat difficult forty six percent said it wasn't a difficult decision at all that concerns me nearly seventy percent said that they thought they would be stigmatized if people knew they had an abortion the women said they struggle with the decision or felt stigmatized by it were more like a chore for Philly guilt anger or sadness immediately after the abortion over time these feelings declined dramatically sometimes even one year after the abortion going to see and then they said the top emotion of all the groups of women in the study said that they felt relief relief was an emotion used to describe how they felt each time they were asked about it I know that's open to a lot of discussion for some of us who are pro life that kind of hurts that definitely it's a string you know I mean I'm sure there's a lot of people in our lives where we would be relieved if they weren't a part of our lives when you talk about a baby and to hear that they were relieved to not have that baby anymore are the idea that baby being alive is is concerning but I don't think that's exactly the way these women were describing it as I think it was the dilemma of being pregnant having to deal with the pregnancy and now not having to deal with it anymore but again still strikes a chord in those are for life researchers came to this conclusion after serving a thousand women following up with them eleven times over a period of five years they surveyed women lived in twenty one states a week after they had an abortion and then again every six months thereafter over the past couple decades researchers say there had been an assumption that women will regret having an abortion and an increasing number of states require counselling and waiting periods before woman can have an abortion so in some states you can't just go you know what I found I got pregnant go head to go out and literature has suggests that counselors give some states require counselors to give a woman before having an abortion what what does this say there's a literature that some say there's a typo in this I I barely Anthony Kennedy just as something heavy in his office is car that I felt the restriction of a woman's right to certain abortion procedures says it seems on acceptable to conclude some women come to regret their choice to bore the infant life once they create insisting researchers say the results of the study proves that notion as a myth they say all the claims that negative emotions will emerge over time a method is process for decades without any evidence to substantiate the claims it's clear and not just for okay and that comes from Korean Rocca an epidemiologist at this is a professor in the department will be gone and revisit the sizes at USC so there was other studies that said that abortion do not contribute to feelings of records and most women well the regrets like they had suggested depends on how you

House to vote on limiting President Trump's war powers

"With Nancy Pelosi coming out and announcing that the house is going to vote to data limit trumps war making powers there are there are planning to vote on the war powers act they say that the president's justification or lack there of bolster their case for a house response to put a check on trump's the president's war making powers and one of the questions that came up was about it was a hypothetical over the rationale for the strike so they're going to wait a couple of options to limit the president's military abilities they are pushing for a measure from representative Rocca Hana to block funding for offensive military operations against Iran without congressional approval sure and a resolution from representative Barbara Lee to repel and to war authorization that was passed to head of the US invasion of Iraq and Steny Hoyer said that they're discussing additional measures beyond that okay let me just say constitutional questions notwithstanding this is a big factor less demonstration anyway because the president can veto it and they would have right and they don't have a veto proof majority to actually pass such a restraint into law so this is all just one giant dog and pony show because in the end nothing's going to change about the president's powers and what he can do here but it definitely while I am sympathetic to Mike Lee making arguments that Congress should start doing its job when it comes to war making them to go on like this academic college seminar in the middle of a briefing that's not the point the point was the solemn minus right justified

A CAmpaign To End The Celebration Of New Years

"Welcome to the promised by gas. Brought to you on T. l. v. one the voice of the city whose worthies and Burgers in the nineteen thirties launched a campaign against the celebration of New Year's which in mandatory Palestine as in Modern Day Israel was known as Sylvester the name borrowed from Pope Sylvester the first thirty third pope of the Catholic Church who was buried and in the catacombs of Priscilla in Rome on December thirty first and who was beatified on December thirty first date became known as Saint Sylvester's Day or the Feast of Saint Sylvester which feasts came to stand for the reveries of the night dividing the last day of the year from the first day of the New Year in Israel as in Austria Italy Lee Bosnia Germany Slovenia Slovakia Switzerland Luxembourg left in China Poland and the Czech Republic France Croatia and probably elsewhere as well now on December remember twenty seven thousand nine hundred eighty four for instance. The paper hired-in reported that the city had been plastered with posters quote sponsored by the rabbinate and the the Hebrew community calling for residents not to celebrate this holiday Silvester as it is foreign to the spirit of Judaism they ask the owners of houses of pleasure and cafes not to rent their rooms for these purposes and quote Davar reported in the same year that deputy mayor Easter Iraq who fifteen years later would ascend to to mayor addressed the city council about quote the question of the holiday of Sylvester that is setting down roots in Tel Aviv. FEE proposal of Mr Rocca was accepted saying at the city council of Tel Aviv sees in the foreign custom of Sylvester celebrations a definitely unwanted thing which is in opposition to the spirit and traditions of the people title of Israel and asks all cafe owners and owners of large halls in the city not to organize Sylvester parties. A committee was chosen to speak with cafe owners owners etc about this matter and quote a year later in nineteen thirty five the municipality itself published this notice quote the city sees itself as obligated to remind owners of cafes and restaurants this year once again of the need to refrain from having public celebrations in honor of Sylvester Eve. This custom to celebrate the holiday of Sylvester believe in public Jewish circles in the Hebrew city harms the national lifestyle that is taking form in the land of our forefathers. This claim is aimed also at the General Oh public some of whom admittedly only a few make a practice of celebrating this holiday with debauchery and loud social parties obviously the municipality and the the citizens of the city will treat with respect anything undertaken and done in honor of this day by those residents of the city and their guests who are not Jewish for this is their holiday and quote in a year after that in one thousand nine thirty six of our reported after the fact that quote several cafes such as the Lawrence and Savoy had special holiday programs in Tel Aviv. There there were many private Sylvester parties mostly from the circles of immigrants from Germany until morning. There was much car traffic and many walking on foot. One of these people who return to his home home after midnight under the influence of alcohol startled the volunteer firefighters with a false report of a fire end quote in nineteen thirty nine. The paper beaucaire made its feelings things about known with a one line article with a banner headline on page three the article in its entirety. Read quote on Silvester Eve. Eleven people committed suicide in new. You Work and quote in one thousand nine forty. The religious paper hot so fat reported this quote I witnesses say that a man of Israel at midnight in Tel Aviv especially in the North would forget that he lives in his own nation and land semester celebrations were celebrated in several coffee houses Jewish houses in the Hebrew city and whomever was indies coffee houses which elevated the celebration to the top of the top and drinking and debauchery would forget that we live in times of emergency. The New Year by the general accounting is not for us. It's the Jews. But it is a New Year for trade and bills and money's silvester celebrations are not Jewish celebrations in the land of Israel. Especially and only those who became habituated to these celebrations collaborations in foreign lands the lands of assimilation fail to Wean themselves of this habit. Even after they pass through all the circles of hell they returned to their iniquity in the land of Israel Israel. These are just one chapter of the spiritual and moral decline that is evident in our public life especially in the first Hebrew city the glorious tel.. Ah Vive end quote now to celebrate. Silvester Twenty twenty in the glorious Tel Aviv. There were hundreds of events for instance one could welcome the New Year with the Abba Tribute Band Carney or or go to Cooley Alma for their annual gala. Three for one Christmas New Years Novi Bash the bootleg was hosting a centers party quote unquote the hostile hosted hip hop new year's breakfast on Rothschild had funke Meli and these were just a fraction of what was on offer so grand was the celebration that the municipality itself posted this on facebook from the legendary Tel Aviv. EDM Club the block quote mayor e high. I don't feel so good. I won't be coming into work tomorrow and quote quote this post from Iraq Tel Aviv Tel Aviv municipality itself. Yes there was the battery in the city. All right one could pretty much find any form of depravity ones. Momma might have worn one against save perhaps for the badgering bullying browbeating of the burgers. About how you really shouldn't go to a drag show on New Year's in the first Hebrew city in the Jewish state and arguing nothing captures the spirit of the city. Well Tel Aviv. Dafa better than a tradition reaching back. Almost ninety years of offsetting the ideological severity doctrinaire rectitude a to enforce the citizen of the hidden who ain't kidding of joyless Orthodox Zionism and greeting each new year. Hal each new day with playful exuberance heterodox selective Goya's and lots and lots of alcohol and seeing the first Hebrew city is a place not just for spiritual fulfillment but also for fun fun fun and more heretical. Still Bill Finding spiritual fulfillment in fun. Fun Fun with us.

Hey Brian stuff lauren. bo-bottle here it's happened to all of us that fresh peachy were so excited to eat as suddenly sporting a dime sized growth growth of fuzzy white stuff or your couple slices of Sandwich. Bread have sprouted. A few tiny flecks of green. Is it safe to just off the unappealing area and consume the rest mold on the surface of food usually appears as a green or white area often fuzzy in texture it can be widespread or appear to be isolated on just one section end end while it may look like the growth is on the surface. Mold is a fungus with a structure similar to a plant roots stock and spores the roots often invisible to the naked eye can grow quite deep the stock and spores are what you see on the surface and the spores can go airborne which can cause the mold to spread on the current object or contaminate nate neighboring foods. You've heard the expression. One bad apple spoils the barrel often if mold develops on one piece of food. It quickly spreads to other nearby air by food not alter bad and some are normal and even desirable some cheeses such as Rocca for our speckled characteristic. Blue Green veins achieve this quality. cheesemakers introduce a friendly edible type of mold. During the manufacturing process. The resulting cheeses are perfectly safe to eat uniquely creamy and very popular although admittedly both a funky and acquired taste but other modes can cause problems. Some cause allergic reactions or induced respiratory Tori distress which is why you shouldn't sniff etymology product and some moles produce poisonous substances called micro-toxins which can cause serious illness so so what about that tasty PT.

"Invited me not to talk to us about Rocca and she told us that this scripted story is based on a very real phone call between her and her grandmother she decided to cast herself as me too and her real grandma as her audio grandma this happy arrangement worked out really well if you can hear since RG is a great actress but she's also a tough critic my grandma didn't like the ending really yeah she actually at this moment where she was like I don't know what you're doing but I don't like the end and I was like oh how would you want it to end and she got like really quiet we were sitting at my parents' dining table in Saint Louis at their house and she like leans in and she's like there should be a plane crash and I was like what and she was like yeah there should be a plane crash and the only one that survived is a small child but then after doing the appropriate paperwork and only after doing the appropriate paperwork so it's not stealing the woman adopts the child I don't know if that was some kind of like you know subtle commentary of like what direction she would like my life to go in but I I was kind of like you know wow that's that's like a different place than I you know I was thinking about where this should go but we can record that fast forward we're doing some pickups for it for the peace the next day and she's like yeah you know you know my idea yesterday I'm yeah I think there was a little much that is hysterical it was really I often honestly there it just made me want to like work more on her projects because we really did enjoy the process of making something together and figuring out how to translate an idea and they're into real life I think she really liked being a part of that process this story is scripted and one of the beauties of this piece is that it's you know it's a very small story but when you listen to it it really kind of illuminates a lot of bigger things like you know first and second generation immigrants age culture and kind of bridging all those gaps did you think about all that when you started with this little colonel I think I've thought about it after I I worry sometimes about starting too much with meaning I feel like when you start thinking a lot about meaning sometimes like whatever you end up making ends up really heavy handed but in my experience at least when I started with the story when I started with like the moment that made me feel something I can just trust that whatever it is that I'm feeling is real and then figuring out how to tell a story that is true to that feeling your subconscious is kind of working for you yeah yeah that like those feelings are coming from somewhere right and and if you just produce what you want to produce it's part of you so it's it's just gonna come out yeah I think it's a hard thing to trust yourself in that way but I don't know I think that's a part of the exercise have you had other response to the fees other than this award I mean how of people generally responded to it when they've heard it there is a screening of it and it was a really wonderful because I hadn't seen it played before with subtitles and I'm not totally sure because the room was dark but I think I heard a lot of Sniffles and sobbing and just people gathering themselves and I was really like touch that people laughed so much because I think humor is really important me too and if people can process something difficult by a laughing at certain parts of it that's good sometimes there was one moment that I thought was interesting that I thought would maybe resonate more with certain second generation immigrants I'm not sure but there is a point in the peace that the granddaughter says I'm still a good girl and he's still a good boy and it's like such a weird thing to say and it's something that I would never say in English if I you know because I have language skills to express whatever I'm trying to say it but in the absence of those words that feel more natural and appropriate it it there's just like this weird kind of clunky thing that comes out I I'm like in my thirties and I I don't describe myself as a good girl ever in in the context of this conversation I guess weird stuff comes out as my grandma got older she started to lose your hearing some and it just became like another tool and communicating with her to be able to go between both languages which I think is common for immigrant families like you're just kind of in and out of different languages in the same sentence and like if there are certain words that you don't know like you just kind of fill in the gaps with the words in whatever language that you do now and I don't know it kind of makes you a little more patient and I think that that's generally a good thing to keep in mind when you're dealing with your family the winner of the twenty nineteen best documentary honorable mention award for her story Rocca here's a short excerpt of need his acceptance speech I.

"Well we have the apollo eleven celebrations behind us. We have our own australian space. Agency set up by making clock so what's next today we take the sign show to the world science festival in brisbane with an expert panel who know how you can have asteroids containing tanning more minerals like iron and the rest than even remain in the earth's crust and who understand how water mind in space can be worth millions but what's the potential there so many surprises including their own space history so off we go to so you're in space. It's been part of a human journey into space into strata. I began space tracking in nine hundred fifty seven but in the end suing years while seventy four other nations including new zealand indonesia formed space agencies australia did not for decades among o._e._c._d. Countries only australia and iceland did not have a dedicated headed space agency australia's group that counted luxembourg motor and vatican city among its members but in may two thousand eighteen the government budgets did about twenty six point five million dollars which was allocated to the newly formed australian space agency and on may the fourteenth got another fifteen million to kick start things the three part program today. We'll look at the past history australia's role in space. Take a deep dive into the forces that formed the new a._s._a. And examine the visionary science settled propel our nation into the future space travel in two thousand nine hundred and beyond and so chapter one we're going to start by looking at australia's impact on space travel by getting a history lesson from an independent space historian curator and writer and a lecturer in the space humanities department of the international space university. She's a member of the international academy of astronautics and also serves on the international astronautical federation space education and outreach committee and its space societies and museums committee so please welcome tom historian and author of the book australia in space kerrie dougherty okay yeah i rocket when thomas brisbane came out did he average rookies with sent home so when we're fish walkers well. It's an interesting story. I probably not was a._a. Champion adelaide in the eighteen seventies called frederick haslam and he actually developed an improved risky rocca for maritime rescues but sadly an a story we hear over and over again the south australian government locked like the idea but they didn't want to spend the money on it and so his development was never adopted ended. I rockets when they happened. Go up in woomera yeah seeing the rocket range inch or the township and it was originally created actually for testing long range british missiles back in the late nineteen forties what that meant though was that come from the late nineteen fifty s when the space age began you had the right concentration of skills and experience from tracking missiles that could be used to track rockets and satellites satellites and his first sounding rocket which is not a rocket that can put a satellite into orbit but can go very high up into the atmosphere to carry scientific instruments intruments. That's long term. He was called named after one of the senior people. We're who apparently was very tool so when he was the boss of the guys who developed at so they thought they'd better named after him to destroy play in that early period tracking and so on one of our major roles was actually in space tracking and even before nasa existed the united states had put a couple of tracking stations in for the first satellite and from there we began to cover all the different types of missions that nasa developed after it was created in fifty eight so we had tracking stations deep space missions tracking stations orbital missions and tracking stations for human spaceflight missions and that began with the mercury project for those of you who remember john glen.

"Me Rocca. Let's just take a brief sidebar, Mr Flynn, who is away. Waiting sentencing dumped his last lawyer and has taken on a new one. We know this, thanks to the president's tweet this morning. General Michael Flynn, the thirty three year war hero, who has served with distinction has not retained a good lawyer. He has retained a great lawyer. Sydney Powell best wishes and good luck to them. Both. Sydney Powell is a frequent contributor and guest on Fox News. Well known in the Republican legal world, what does all this mean to you does anything? Get your attention there. I mean, the whole thing really gets your attention. I can't tell you exactly where this is going. But look, first of all, Flynn, is about to be sentenced, this, judge has signalled very pretty clearly that he was planning on sending Flynn to jail. And we have no reason to think yet that that would have changed. I think Flynn is going down a different path. He thinks, well, if I'm going to go to jail with this judge, then I might as well, roll the dice on a pardon and Trump is certainly signaling that he is amenable to that, by that tweet. I mean I thought that tweet was astonishing. Because first of all, he supposedly fired Flynn because he was not an honest man who had lied to the vice president. I mean for Hinton now go back and he's doing the dance that he did. With Manafort, and with Cohen, the oh, he's a good man. He's a good man. I mean he's holding out something for him now, the possibility of the pardon, and this at a time when Flynn is being subpoenaed to congress. There is still very much Lynn could do in his cooperation in his testimony now with congress and Trump knows that and I think this is his way of holding out this pardon holding out the possibility it hasn't worked out for Manafort. So I don't know.

Mo- Bidu Aries. And we've got him here on talking tech to tell you all about it. I'm Jefferson Graham. Let's just jump in and hear from oh, I'm a long time fan, reader of obituaries and, you know, any good OBE. It writer will tell you that a good old. But it's really about the life of I am of a person rather than the death of a person on CBS Sunday morning. I've always loved profiling people. And it occurred to me that there were a lot of great people from the pass. It didn't get a proper sendoff and some that didn't get an e send-off at all. And so that this would would be the, the right vehicle. I guess as cold award is at is to, to, to profile the subjects that are interesting to me, you know, and, and like I said, there's a lot to choose from beyond von meter in TV brothers. You're doing Sammy Davis in who else? Meander falls, because when they died out, forty thousand years ago, there was no open at least not one that we could find now there might be a stone tablet, somewhere in the Levant where they were given you know, sort of a proper sendoff, but I don't I don't think so we couldn't find anything in our own search in the archives are in Lexis Nexis, which I think people still use. So this was this was important for us to do next season. This is something that I've always been interested in the black congressman of reconstruction, which I know sounds like a funk band, but it's this period right after the civil war when there are a number of African American men most of whom had been slaves, who end up serving in the United States Congress. So it's those little pockets that are, that are interesting to me as well as well as people like Audrey Hepburn Sammy Davis junior, who we hopefully all. Love and remember. But our I think are due, for sort of a new a reevaluation and you're still doing Sunday morning at the same time. Absolutely. I have a lot of stories in the works. They're going off tomorrow to go profile Angie Dickinson, which I'm really excited about. So I was watching old policewoman episodes last night, and I highly recommend getting your hands on a policewoman DVD. Yes, they still sell those DVD's. That is an listening to the DVD commentary. It is, you know, I don't listen to enough DVD commentaries in his hilarious listening to her reminisce about the show what, what will be up. So it'd be next week the third one, the one that's releasing this Thursday is forgotten forerunners, which may be on ongoing thing. I do the years have collected names of people who I call sort of the pioneers before the pioneers. So there's a woman named Elizabeth Jennings. An African American woman who almost exactly. Hundred years before Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was was was was asked to sat down on that on that boss, excuse me. Among Gumri, Alabama, Elizabeth Jennings in New York was kicked off of a streetcar. And she ended up suing the railroad company that owned that streetcar. And she won and this is before the civil war, and led to the integration of New York's transportation system. And I mean it's a remarkable achievement and it's almost equally remarkable that we don't know her name. So this episode this Thursday, is about her about the African American man who played major league baseball, what passes the major leagues sixty four years before Jackie Robinson antibody woman who was the highest paid director in Hollywood during the silent era. So these are all names that I'm pretty sure you don't know. And but so it's this episode is our first where. Featuring people that you probably never heard of.

"Just like we did for Elizabeth Jennings. And Moses Fleetwood Walker we track down the newspaper coverage of Lois Weber's passing. She didn't get a ton of Inc. In the major papers with one exception a big front page item. In the Los Angeles Times penned by famed gossip columnist had a hopper hopper paid tribute by writing I don't know of any woman who has had a greater influence upon the motion picture business than Lois or anyone who has helped so many climb the ladder of fame asking for nothing. But friendship in return. Hopper added. I have a feeling she wasn't sorry to leave this world for a better one Shelley stamp hopes for a better legacy for Lois Weber. I feel confident that over the long haul histories of Hollywood will be written to feature her and all of the other women that were active at the beginning industry, but the more films that come out and the more. Folks that get rewritten the more tension that's paid to her. I think I think we can correct this. Emmy. These are the stories of just three forgotten for runners the pioneers before the pioneers, but in any story of firsts and four runners you've got to be careful we talked about Elizabeth Jennings as the Rosa Parks of New York parks. One of the most famous symbols of the civil rights struggle, but nine months before her arrest a woman named Claude at Kovin did the very same thing. And as far as Moses Fleetwood Walker, well baseball, researchers recently came across story of William Edward white. He played one major league game in eighteen seventy nine for the providence. Grays white was actually a former slave but lived his free life as a white, man. So was he really the I I don't know maybe proving who was I isn't as important as we think maybe misses the point that all these people whether they were fur's second or one hundred second had guts. And made things at least a little bit better for the people who came later sometimes much later, of course, that depends on us remembering their stories..

"Shilling watched the film together. It's only ten minutes long. And let me tell you suspense is gripping and what's happening here. One of the hallmarks of the last minute rescue is that you have the woman on the phone with police or husband and often the phone line is cut. And so that cross cutting back and forth of the phone. Call is a key element of suspense Weber. Does is she puts the three elements together in the frame it the screen split in three. There's the wife at home on the phone. The husband at work, and the intruder coming further and further into the house right sawing the phone line peeking through the door. So we see all elements at once. And there is looking right at us. A tramp is prowling around the house and he's good bad guys. Good in this. She's on the phone, and that's lowest Weber playing the woman. She wrote it she starred in it. And she's directing it how did Lois Weber? Present if she would walk in here, would you think well there she is that's groundbreaker or she's a radical. She had what's is what I think is really interesting about her her persona was that of a kind of very dignified, married white middle class woman. I'm should really presented herself that way. But I think that persona was a way for her to tackle the issues that she tackled. She describes herself as a missionary in several places that I've seen. Well, she took that description very seriously early in her career when she was pursuing music. She was involved in evangelical work in New York, and she really saw cinema as she said. It's a meeting where can preach to my heart's content. One of the issues. She tackled on film was birth control. He nineteen sixteen. Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in America that same year Weber directed a film called where are my children, which was considered so controversial that universal preface to the film with a big full screen warning to parents, not to let their children watch the film on supervised the studio also defended the film subject matter by pointing out that birth control had been in the news fair warning to this audience, though, the film's point of view has not aged. Well, at all hell take on legalising contraception is very mired in the eugenics of the period. She's making a case for legal contraception for largely for. Women living in poverty and for immigrant population. So that's sort of classic eugenics argument. Right. And that's one half of the film. The other half of the film is vilifying wealthy. Privileged white women who repeatedly use abortion to avoid pregnancy. They're not propagating the right? Stop -solutely. They're not propagating the right stock. And so the the the reproductive politics of this film are pretty distasteful from a contemporary point of view, right? We can't really shy away from that fact, but they were relatively typical of the time Lois Weber was not part of some fringe. No, no now, Lois Weber didn't earn recognition. Just for her directing just when I thought nothing else would surprise me. I learned about her political career. Nineteen thirteen feigned Hollywood director, Lois Weber gained national attention for another role. She was mayor of Universal City. Yes. Universal city. The home of Universal Studios any family that's been lucky enough to take a trip to Los Angeles. And we went as a family one thousand nine hundred eighty when I was in the fifth grade, hopefully took the Universal Studios tour where you see the psycho house, and, you know, jaws comes up, and you think it's going to bite you what they don't tell you on that tour the city once had a mayor a female mayor seven years before women gained the right to vote nationally. What was this about was this a big Hollywood publicity stunt kind of? But it was an important city. Stent Universal City. Imagine it self as a place where work in life or combined, right? That making motion pictures is so fun that it's a community you live there in you work together..

"The greatest directors and the profession and whose success confused any argument of women's inability to fill posts in a man's field. She was a very important figure Weber was also prolific she directed over one hundred short films and in one year alone when she was Universal's top director. She wrote interacted ten feature length films is an extraordinary productivity. I can't really even imagine. I think by contemporary. It's impossible to imagine. I mean these days, you know, you wait for your favorite director to make a movie once every three years. Well, you know that they're reporters the saw her onset during these years. They talk about how how decisive she was how in-command she was. She had her script in her hand. And she was issuing orders and everybody would come to her for every little detail about wardrobe about sad about everything. I mean, I think she just worked incredibly hard. She's prolific issue innovative. So she's not a cookie cutter director, she's not a director that's for lifting because she's turning out the same thing again. And again, and again, she takes on all of these very controversial social issues of her day. She's known as this director who took on birth control and poverty, religious apocryphal. But equally important, I think is her visual storytelling, which extrordinary one of Weber's. Most popular early short films is called suspense. It's from nineteen thirteen. What she's doing is? Adopting of what about time would have been a really well known formula called the last minute rescue, basically, Liam Neeson's movie. Yes. Yes. The earliest pre-take taken right by nineteen thirteen by the time. She takes it on. It's very well known formula. She keeps her generic title to tell us that she's taking on this formula. And that she is going to better the master at his own game..

"Now, let's travel back to the earliest days of Hollywood somewhere between nineteen ten and nineteen twenty two the story of one of silent films. Most prolific yet almost completely forgotten directors. How much does this historical 'em nesia bother you? I mean, it's infuriating. It's absolutely infuriate. And film historian Shelley stamp is here to set the record straight. One critic at the time talked about the three great minds of early Hollywood. To whom will be familiar to most people who don't know anything about early cinema DWI Griffith and speed to mill and the third grade mind was those Weber not Louis, Lois Weber. She was the first American woman to direct feature film, a nineteen fourteen out of tation of Shakespeare's the merchant of Venice. She was also one of the stars these all took place before movies even had sound Shelley stamp wrote the book Lois Weber in early Hollywood. She was the highest paid director in the industry, the highest paid a man woman child as as one of reporter put it she was respected. She negotiated very lucrative contracts. When she formed her own studio, so you can see she was right up there with names that that we associate with with the fathers of American cinema at the time and their legacy indoors and hers does not. Last year a mere three percent of studio films directed by women and pay inequity is a persistent issue. But in the Hollywood of one hundred years ago, lowest Weber was one of the most respected and highest paid directors. I know it's like, I'm describing some mythical time in place like Camelot that just poof disappeared. I mean, this really happen. I think the first thing to emphasize is that yes, Weber was the most prominent female director during this time, but there was lots of other female filmmakers during this time. Right. She wasn't a unicorn she wasn't an anomaly and the early years of the industry were open to many people, right? When film began in the early decades of the twentieth century, it became really popular really fast. So there was an incredible need for movies. Sounds like a land rush or something. This is open terrain and once the industry solidified in LA around nineteen thirteen LA became an incredible magnet for women in particular. And Lois Weber was one of those women. She was born in Allegheny city, Pennsylvania in eighteen seventy nine and started off as an accomplished pianist. She then moved onto the theater as an actress. And that's where she met her husband Phillips Smalley he started working in the movies. I, but she very soon joined him and they worked together as a collaborative team. She wrote the scenarios they acted together. Onscreen often playing husband wife or into partners and the co-directed who is leading home. Here initially there billed as the smallest and they're built as a couple but within four or five years Weber is clearly the dominant creative force. But Shelly told us early on Weber was not a unicorn wasn't even the first in her field. In fact, the actual first woman to direct films, really one of the first filmmakers period was Alice. Gibney shea of France. We're talking about the eighteen nineties. She eventually opened a US studio in New Jersey with her husband right around the time Weber was getting her own start. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that women were at the beginning of the formation of film language. Here is an article August fourth nineteen sixteen lowest Weber star of first magnitude from the Nashville Tennessee in. I mean, the middle of the country. You know is surprises. Not variety is is not a trade journal lowest Weber ranks with.

I guess as cold award is at is to to to profile the subjects that are interesting to me, you know, and and like I said there's a lot to choose from beyond von meter in TV brothers. You're doing Sammy Davis in who else? Else meander falls because when they died out forty thousand years ago, there was no opet at least not one that we could find now there might be a stone tablet somewhere in the Levant where they were given you know, sort of a proper sendoff, but I don't I don't think so we couldn't find anything in our own search in the CBS archives are in Lexis Nexis, which I think people still use. So this was this was important for us to do next season. This is something that I've always been interested in. The black congressman of reconstruction, which I know sounds like a funk band, but it's his period right after the civil war when there are a number of African American men, most of whom had been slaves who end up serving in the United States Congress. So it's those little pockets that are that are interesting to me as well as well as people like Audrey Hepburn Sammy Davis junior who we hopefully all love and remember. But are I think are due for sort of a new a reevaluation in you're still doing Sunday morning at the same time? Absolutely. I have a lot of stories in the works. They're going off tomorrow to go profile Angie Dickinson, which I'm really excited about. So I was watching old policewoman episodes last night. And I highly recommend getting your hands on a policewoman DVD. Yes, they still sell those DVD's that is an listening to the DVD commentary. It is I don't listen to enough DVD commentaries in his hilarious listening to her. Reminisce about the show. What what will the episode be next week the third one the one that's releasing this Thursday is forgotten forerunners which may be on ongoing thing. I do the years have collected names of people who I call sort of the pioneers before the pioneers. So there's a woman named Elizabeth Jennings. An African American woman who almost exactly a hundred years before Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks was was was was asked to the sat down on that on that boss, excuse me, among Gumri, Alabama, Elizabeth Jennings in New York was kicked off of a streetcar. And she ended up suing the railroad company that owned that streetcar and she won and this is before the civil war, and it led to the integration of New York's transportation system, and I mean, it's a remarkable achievement. And it's almost equally remarkable that we don't know her name. So this the episode this Thursday is about her about the African American man who played major league baseball. What passes the major leagues sixty four years before Jackie Robinson, antibody woman who was the highest paid director in Hollywood during the silent era. So these are all names that I'm pretty sure you don't know. And but it's it this episode is our first where we're featuring people. The you probably never heard of.

She was transportation was not integrated and had she had trouble before much. Everybody had had some trouble in the past. Now. I know you think you know, who we're talking about here. But no, we're not in Montgomery, Alabama. We're not talking about Rosa Parks in the nineteen fifties. We're in New York City. We're talking about the eighteen fifties. They her to get off and she resists. Yeah. She said, no. And I'm pretty sure you've never heard of this woman Kerr Mark on history has all but disappeared and she's not alone. In this episode will also tell you the story of the first black major league baseball player. And no he's name is not Jackie Robinson. You got. Rewind a few decades from nineteen forty seven back to eighteen eighty four actually, and we'll introduce you to the woman who ruled Hollywood one hundred years ago at several points. She was the highest paid director in the industry, the highest paid female child as as one reporter put it I'm Morocca, and this is who Aries. This moment, the forgotten forerunners? That's the other day one of the time citizens of community. Mrs Rosa Parks was arrested because she refused to give up a seat for of white passenger. That was the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King junior. Speaking about the Montgomery bus boycott in nineteen fifty-five touched off when civil rights icon, Rosa Parks stood her ground by sitting. But another African American woman struck her own blow for Justice a full century earlier. She's really, the Rosa Parks of your and mostly are most Americans have no idea. Her name was Elizabeth Jennings and Amy hill hearth wrote a book about her called streetcar to Justice last summer, Amy and I- retraced Elizabeth's footsteps around the once infamous lower Manhattan neighborhood known as five points. You may remember it was the setting. The Martin Scorsese film gangs of New York the five points. Murderers, alley brick bed mansion. The gates of how I think it was the dirtiest most disgusting place imaginable. I think if you think of the worst smell you've ever smelled and multiply by thousands of a second. Have you been on see train lately? Amy's right city. Life was especially filthy back. Then the streets were covered in horse manure with wild hogs running rampant alongside open sewers. No surprise life expectancy was only forty years old Amy and I met up on a sweltering day. Just like it was on July sixteenth eighteen fifty four when Elizabeth headed to church to practice the organ with the choir. She was wearing these long sleeved jacket over a long dress that went down to her ankles with layers of petticoats courses, and so on must have been miserable. I'm taking advantage of the fact that this is audio only I'm wearing shorts and I'm still hot. In other words, Elizabeth Jennings is an upstanding church-going woman, a schoolteacher no less all she wants to do is board horse drawn streetcar, the public transportation of the day with her good friend, Sarah Adams, but certain rules got in the way in New York City like most northern cities at the time. There was both deja array legal, and sort of defacto, segregation and discrimination. Leslie Alexander is a history.
