"rodriguez" Discussed on Good One: A Podcast About Jokes
"To Ida Rodriguez, where she discusses the burden and opportunity of representation. What did you hope for a joke like this? What do you hope comedy can do? What do you hope your comedy do? What do you hope for something like this? I hope that people who hear my comedy employ some empathy and think about how their actions affect other people. I hope that people engage in conversations that are productive and healthy that can push culture forward. You know, I hope that people laugh and it feel joy and I hope to normalize experiences like mine to make people feel like they're okay and just because they grew up poor or they grew up without their father or that they've been on housed or that they have been discriminated against that they know that they're not alone. Because a lot of times, comedians aspire to ascend into celebrity. For their own reasons and their own pain, and then they start to employ the same practices against the average man and woman and nonbinary person that was a practice on them. And so for me, it's like, I love George Carlin for many reasons, but one of them was that he maintained a distance, a healthy distance from celebrity culture that upheld his celebrity 'cause a lot of times these people, you know, they want to be cool. They want to be in the in crowd. They want to be a Kardashian, if you will. They really do deep down inside. And so for me, it's like, I want people who are not going to ever be that to know that they're still okay. And that I see them, if nobody else is, and that I'm them. Yeah. You know? I still, I'm still worrying about how I'm paying my bills in March. I'm not, I haven't made it to the point where I'm like, oh, you know, it's all good for me. I live in an apartment. You know, I'm still help my mommy pay her bills, you know? I have a lot of responsibility for my village and I don't ever take any of them for granted. They don't get paid a decent wage. You know, you've talked about there's something you'll sometimes say in interviews, I find really interesting, which is you talk about using your story to relieve the shame and guilt of the audience. Especially around difficult subjects. Can you talk about how do you try to do that and how you hope comedy is able to do that? I mean, you know, when I did, they read, I had quite a few emails from women who had been sexually assaulted and molested. Who understood my joke. This me too shit is real, and I'm gonna tell you something. Ladies, there's a much more practical way to deal with this. We don't have to fucking cry on Twitter and write think pieces and shit. We.

"Make it make sense. Yeah. You know, like, you honestly feel like this is a problem. We don't want a shelter. We don't want that symbolism in our neighborhood. And this is a person who has a Black Lives Matter sign in her window. And I'm sitting there like, not only do you don't care about black people you don't care about veterans, you don't care about women, you don't care about children because that's who's on your neighborhood sidewalk underneath the freeway. You just want a flush them out. You don't want to even see them, because you don't want to acknowledge their humanity. And you know, it's just like those are the people that I'm talking about. They perform and they appear to be on our team so much, but when it comes to, oh, when it comes to real life and execution, they're not on our team at all, because when you're talking to a woman who used to be on house and you're telling me, how irritated, you are by this because now you just see what you see. And you think, oh, I met her through my friend, my friend is an actor. She's gotta be in the in crowd because she's over here. And it's like, you're talking about my people. Those people on the street, those are my people. Yeah, I think what you do. The distinction that you're making and I think is it's like the difference between people being in their neighborhood on house and people living in their neighborhood is that they're saying these are not my neighbors. Like they're living here, they live here as people without homes. But if we give them homes here, then they are my people. And that is the distinction of the point of view, where you are saying, they are my people regardless of where they are. Yeah, and if you care about human beings, you never know. You don't know what's in that facility and what potential lives there that will eventually become. Hillary swank is an Oscar winning actor that lived in her car, right? I believe that it was Hilary Swank, but it's like, you never know what's in there. And even though you shouldn't even care about that, it shouldn't. It could be ten McDonald's workers in there. They're human beings. Not that there's anything wrong with being a McDonald's worker because they're certainly is not. But it's just like, it doesn't matter who's in there, but it's just like that. That idea that you really care about the community so long as it doesn't impact your little habitat is very problematic and very common. Yeah. And a lot of these woke people are in the neighborhoods in Harlem. They are in Brooklyn. They're in alpha and Miami, which they call, you know, wynwood, which they called the art district now. You know, we don't have any of our bodegas, you know? Getting rid of all good food in the neighborhood that I seasoning on it. We'll be right back with Ida Rodriguez, talking about what she hopes her comedy can do. This podcast is sponsored by better help, online therapy. Some people are hesitant to start therapy until they really quote unquote need it. And I get it. I don't buy band aids until I quote unquote need them. However, this morning, I cut my finger trying to open the box, my cat's food is kept in, and I cut myself and I didn't have any band aids because I didn't quote unquote need them before I cut myself. The point is you can start therapy anytime..

"Pay attention to you and again, hard thing for a code to do. Just start with that number one. Number two, know whether what the signs are when you're getting into trouble if you can't function. If you can't function or your suicidal, then you got it. It's a medical problem. Then you've got to make sure a doctor is involved and it may need medication it may not. And then have some sort of long-term treatment plan, which is usually ideally what you're doing psychotherapy or something like that or group or maybe it's 12 step if you can't afford it. This thing that drives me crazy. I'm glad you're involved in some sort of 12 step program. Because the research shows clearly that 12 step works, it's as efficacious as many professionally managed things. I'm not saying you should avoid freshly managed services. I'm just saying that literature is clear and it's free. It's available everywhere. And it's available 24/7. And why we are not availing ourselves with this, it drives me out of my mind. The same people. I'm not believing it. The research is just there. And the same people that want to talk about healthcare expenses shit on 12. It's like, hey, there's a solution, everybody works. Anyway, so that's my little thing. Oh, I've gone to debtors anonymous. I've gone to the under earners group. I learned about them through alanon. This is all filling, right? Yeah. That's all. It's the opposite of drug. It's a converse of drug addiction. But it's the same thing, right? Same stuff. The buying that whatever to fill the void is saving the rescuing. It's your drug, as opposed to heroin or whatever. Yeah. Learning how to and just learning being able to accept that you don't make enough money to live the lifestyle that you think you need to live to have the value that you think you should have. And here's the thing about rich people, they always live under their means. Yeah. Always. Unless they're crazy. No, I don't even live in a little mini house. You know what I mean? He's interested in building his companies, not in spending money. Yeah, Tiffany is very, very judicious about her spending. There you go. You're gonna get castle. But that's what I would like to see some more funny from her about. I think that'd be hysterical. Yeah, she's always about her money. And that heritage one side of my family system. So I know what that rains down on you from that. But listen, I have to wrap this up. It has been a pleasure. This has been healing. This is just what I needed today. Oh, good. Well, it's kind of what I needed, too. And for totally different reason, I need to see that people can get up and speak, honestly, and take aim at anything. And comedians being comedians again. And I look forward to you talking more about men, because I'm sure you're going to have some crazy. Oh man, I have been so fucked up. I said it in there. I know they're gonna come for me 'cause I said men are crazy, but I know they're coming for me. We actually are more disturbed by women who fall for men's bullshit. If we like to see it when you call a man out, I was watching something, I was watching like a reality show, so my wife yesterday. And she was like, oh, he's so cute. I go, do you don't see that? He is manipulating her and he will not be able to work. He's so impaired, this guy will not be able to get a job, and you can't see that because he's being romantic. It's like, oh my God. So that's kind of stuff we actually admire when women can see it. We like it, so. Oh, I appreciate it. All right, listen, get the go watch the comedy special. It's available on HBO Max. It's worth your time. Also follow eta on funny Ada as well as the YouTube page 8 of Rodriguez. Is there some outtakes from the series on the line? I'm sure they're going to be on HBO Max's page. Everything's going to be there. So check it out. Anything else coming, I think we want to talk about anything else we should look for you out in the road. Show us developing a series at HBO Max based on my life. Is it like a script? Cartoon or real? No, no, it's real. I think cartoon would be interesting too. I'm also working on an animated series for ITV studios. Where you can do a little more, you know that in animation. Well, that's right. That's why I think it'd be funny because your version of the Family Guy very interesting. Yeah, I would love to do that. That's what we're working on.

"It's not aware. By the way, this is part of the job right now for white people to just get appreciated. Appreciate you don't know shit. And then start to educate yourself. No, no, but I appreciate that. So, you know, within our community, there is a system of a hierarchy of what is better in terms of being lighter and the closer to the same thing. Yeah. It's global. Weird to me. And Asian weird to me because why do you want skin that you get melanoma and gives a shit? That I was told that it was better, so. And black women have a thing about hair, too, where it gets more there's a higher status to less. Yeah. What? Why? Well, why supremacy is why? Yes. That's right. And so it's Stockholm syndrome, right? It's the greatest lie ever told is to tell a people that the darker you are, the lesser value you have, but the problem is that a lot of us adopted that as a belief. Stockholm syndrome. Yeah. And we do it to each other. And so we were on a panel and we were happy. We knew that, or it's power stuff, power games. Just another way of creating power within a group. It's also, yeah, it's divide and conquer. Because if we're fighting about hair texture and complexion, but none of our conditions are changing, then they're winning. And that's really that's the big, the big goal anyway. Or everybody's losing, really. Well, we all are. And I'm glad you said that because I appreciate you saying that. Because really, I was just talking to somebody yesterday, even I get a lot of hate from white racist people who can't stand me or whatever. And you think about somebody who's from, you know, I'll say someone that sent me a really ugly message from Omaha. And poor, you can tell not very educated. And the one thing he felt like he had over me was that he was white. And I was like, tell me that that's not sad, and that's not an illness, that you think that you don't have healthcare, you're poor. You probably don't read well because your post was indicative of that. And the one thing you think you have over me is your complexion. That's an illness. And that's being taken away. That's why they're freaking out. Absolutely. So, you know, let me give you a kind of a rush of ideas with your talking about the idea of white supremacy, I think, is the word needs to be altered or something, because you think people always remember they think about skinheads, and that's not what we're talking about. But I give you based on the word as we use it today. I have two of my own personal stories of white supremacy. One is I was working on teen mom and my co host has African American boyfriend or whatever. And one of the mobs brought up having to deal with racism of West Virginia. And I was like, what really we still have that? And I was like, and she looked amazing. What is the matter with you when I thought that's my privilege? I was like uh oh, I got a really, I gotta educate myself. So that's why I'm asking you that question. And I went deep and I got completely moved had a rush of insight with Frederick Douglass. I read a bunch of stuff. His words and a bunch of and I got deep into the reconstruction. I was like, oh, fuck, this is a thing that we're pushed into our encouragement because we can't deal with it. It's too horrible. But he, the way he got through to me, Frederick Douglass, was he called Abraham Lincoln and white supremacists. And I was like, I'm clutching my pearls. What? And I was like, and then he goes on to explain himself. And I'm like, oh, I get it. I get it. It's what I'm doing when I say, what? Does raise some still exist? You're kidding me. It's like you're sitting on high somewhere else and you really are not in with the people's people's experience. And you have an obligation to share and be a part of. Why would you? No, you know? Like, how would you be? That's gross. No, I know. It's gross. But by design, though. Well, fine, but I don't want to be a part of it. And it's gross and it bothers I hate that I was that way. And I'm trying not to be. And so again, one of the reasons I'm so excited to talk to you. Well, that's honest though in that. That I appreciate more than people that say, I've never seen color. I know. That was me. That was me. And I thought that's huge, that's why supremacy. That's what that is. And maybe we need a new word to describe that, but that is a eurocentric Caucasian point of view and experience and it needs to be expanded. And it's just comedy is a great way to do it, I think. I hope so. Yeah. And by the way, watch the special, everybody. It now, HBO Max, go get it. And Tiffany hadish haddish has been part of your life, right? Another important voice in all. And I wish she'd get more into her Jewish heritage, too, in fact, make fun of that more because there's lots of comedy there. She's doing that. She's trying to go that way. I think she's probably doing that. So let me get back to you and your homelessness. How did that happen? You were teen mom, I guess. Yeah, I was. And you know what? Let me tell you about homelessness. I really have been a been unpacking a lot of this because I think that it's important to talk about it. We really, I was homeless from one day to the next. I was working at a job at a private bank. My residence was there. West Coast office for tax purposes and business purposes because I was one of their employees. They were based out in the Midwest. And they let me go for a they would let me go the owner of the company was friends with my ex-husband. And my ex-husband convinced him to let me go so that I could lose my job and come back to him, which happens to a lot of women who are in toxic relationships with men who, you know, where there's a power dynamic and that was there. But it was just from one day to the next, you know I had my two kids. I had a job. I was driving around in a decent vehicle. I lived in a decent place and one day I pull up and the sheriff is at my house and they're removing my stuff out of my mouth..

I want to get right to my guess. Aida Rodriguez, stand up comedians, especially is fighting words, available now as we air this podcast. November 4th is where it became available. It concludes with a documentary of my parents name is it Ada or I use it? Because I see I'm I come from a white boy background, right? I love it. And so I think of an opera. Let me keep going.

And I recommend the stand up highly and when we finish our conversation, you will see why. Welcome. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me. So there's a million things I want to get into with you. Okay. And not the least of which is that when you walked in, you said, I was on the phone with my therapist, I thought that for me. But I want to come back around to that. Okay. First, I really appreciated your stand up in terms of and I hope I'm a characterized in this correctly. The complexity of Hispanic culture and families and it dovetails very nicely into the complexity of race and ethnicity in our country generally, which has become a cartoon created by white people. You know what I mean? Yeah. And you take aim at everybody, I would say. I love. I love that. So how would you characterize that to me? That's what I took away. What would you say? Well, I think that's a great description of it. I think it's important to hold the powers that be responsible for what they've done to people of color. And at the same time, hold ourselves accountable for how we participate in this. And I think that we miss a part in holding ourselves accountable. I think that we've become so polarized and everything gets politicized that we meaning. The country is the country and in general. Because one of the things I noticed, and I like really dug from a comedy. And by which it's very funny. I know it's your first goal. It is funny. But it has layers to it. And I like the layer part for this podcast. It reminded me a little bit of what Ali Wong does with Asian culture, what you did with Hispanic culture. It's not one thing. It's not just stuff. There is not like when I hit going into these meetings with executives because they're like, we got to conquer the Latino market. There's no such thing. And should I say Hispanic, Latino? You can say you can say either some people identify as Hispanic, some people identify as LatinX. Some people don't want to identify confusing. Of course, it's confusing to me. I want to get it right, but it's complicated. People even people from white people identify as Hispanic, but go ahead. Absolutely. People from Spain Hispanic and their white people who speak Spanish. And then there are people from the Caribbean. And there are white people want to get into Harvard that do it too. That's absolutely and white women who, you know, I don't want to be called carrot. No. Don't want to be called Karen, but do Karen kind of stuff. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's all complicated and we have to be able to break through and have nuanced conversations or we're never going to get through to the other side. But there are people from the Caribbean who don't want to be caught Latino or Hispanic, they are now identifying as Afro Caribbean or Afro Puerto Rican or Afro Cuban, which I respect, and I think everybody should have their identity. I just think that, you know, it's important for us to be able to just have conversations. And that's what I wanted to do. I wanted to spark conversations, nuances just disappearing in conversation. Right. It's all cartoon now. I love that you said part two. Yeah, well, because fake news is a cartoon version of complicated story. So it becomes propaganda. Absolutely. Really. And so I've been in many shit storms. On social media. And it's always not what I said. It's what somebody said I said. And then that's the shit storm. It's never the actual story. It's always one removed that's untrue, but cartoon version and off it goes. And I say the same thing as it pertains to what we've done with race and race culture at the culture and stuff like that. And I think you take aim at that in the absolute pretty clearly. And it is, again, what you're doing is complicated multiple levels, because you're saying we participate in it, but it's foisted on you by elites. People are absolutely. And you know, it's not just, you know, like, it's so complicated, because Washington has always talked about Hollywood, Hollywood is always talking about Washington. And they all should, you know, there is what the fuck are they talking about? Yeah, everybody's always talking about how hard you have. Every morning you have a bunch of rich people sitting on television, telling poor people what they should be thinking and how they should be feeling. And it is so you know I was homeless. I was I struggled and I'm still struggling. I live in an apartment. I'm not by any means wealthy, but I still, I still am respectful of the people who have jobs that make $12 an hour and knowing that even in my own apartment, my reality is very different than people who are making towels and people who work in mines and work in factories. And I just think that we just sit around. First of all, you know what I have to do on a very very frequent basis. I have to always go check statistics of how many people in the world are actually on social media so I can put it into perspective. The last time I checked, it was like 4% of Americans were on Twitter and 7% of the world. So that's a lot. That's a lot of people who are not on there. So remember not to take that so. Seriously. You know, so seriously because it's really just people who have time to say, oh, thread. But I noticed strange we were having this conversation yesterday that I think Twitter hit a weird little threshold. I think because I was portrayed on John Oliver as having an opinion that was again false. And it's funny. They picked out something that I said on a different podcast where I remember saying, God, I did not express that properly. That's it. That's my opinion. It was false. And a shit storm ensued. And then I said, I set the record straight and another guy who's actually more sort of a opinion maker said it straight in a different way, but said it straight. And it just stopped. And I thought, oh, Twitter's getting more powerful than television today. Because in the past, once television caused a shit storm on social media, it continued. You couldn't do anything to stop it. Do they canceled yesterday? I was on the verge of getting canceled many times. And what are you going to do? What do you get canceled for? So I got canceled. I was on a panel that was about and by the way, don't have to say it if it's going to get you canceled again. No, no, no. It was about Hispanic heritage month and there was we have a very big fight in our community a valid fight about colorism, which I've always spoken about in comedy since I started doing stand up 13 years ago. It's not new for me, because for some people, this is a thing. They talk about it because they want to get followers, they want to do documentaries. They want to do podcasts. They want to sell t-shirts. For me, it's something that I've been doing. Because it caused a lot of pain in my family. You know, it caused a lot of pain to my family members..

"The inoculation of diseases we're seeing issue with these vaccinations is so called, but they're not by definition. What Phelps says is that, though in appearance, these protocols are written by Jews, they are not. Jews, these are Jesuits. Yeah. The Jesuits were a militant. Militant. An army. A militant order. Of the Catholic Church. So here again, we see catalysis through these protocols, which calls for the destruction of the borders. Calls for the vaccinations. But yet now you've also brought to light the Catholic involvement in retrieving these invaders, bathing them clothing them, giving them purse, food, and prosperity. They're the same people they're the same. Same gang. It's the same gang release. Yes, of course. So this is then the same battle, the same power, the same structure. The same form of governance in the sense. That's founded the independence of Texas. Isn't it? Is there a link there? Is there a link there? I think things change with time. You know, there's a different leaders along history. And we're seeing it right now. Last year, we had the greatest president in the United States. Ever. This year is the same United States, the same White House. With the worst president, so I think the same thing happens in this organization. At the end, there's groups of power behind. Leaders in they are the ones that push forward their own agenda. Me as a Christian as a men of God. As a man that loves people, humanity, their respects life. I'm pushing my own agenda. Well, not my own, I push my diene that I believe that is right and that and that I believe that every human being should be happy. And that every human being. Has the right, we all have the same or should deserve the same opportunity. But. The right way that they will land. There's people on this planet that will never ever ever feel their dreams of what they want. You know why? Could they do it the wrong way? But that is not my fault that it's not your fault. Is their own. And we're not responsible for being for someone being irresponsible. Is now your fault that is not my fault that people is not responsible for themselves. There's a time that where we can not help people because you can help and they're going to end up in the same place. What can you do about that? Or me, nothing? Is your decision to stay there? Was willing to help? Are you wanna be there? Is your decision? So working hard, pushing, not my own agenda, but I believe God's agenda. That's okay. Believe in the Bible, I believe that the Bible is the best book ever written. Because it was inspired by God, not by men. And that's what gives us life in the right direction. And by the way with this obey, we want to do our own will our own things, and we end up in misery or doing the wrong thing, I can help you with from my heart, but if people want to stay there, then their decision. So it's okay to help but if we can not help everyone, it's okay. But the United States has that hard that love for people like no other country in the plan. Our border patrol agents, they are the they are trained not only trained, you know, they are great people, but they are also trained to treat people in a better way. And they do. They do it. And they have that passion for people. But they have to do the right thing also. If somebody deserves to be sent back to Central America, that person has to be sent to Central America again. Let me ask you a question. What was Kamala Harris doing in Guatemala City? To be honest with you, I think just a show. Just to show, that's it. Let me come people down a little bit, but just to show nothing happened. So what about what about resolution? Rolanda, you're monitoring monitoring this invasion on the border in the firsthand. You've worked with Latinos for Trump you know, regardless of the point here. Rolando has been a Trump supporter, but really you're a supporter and defender of the U.S. Constitution. Of course, in the rights, gratitude and support and this boy, this is his last year in college. He's going for political science. He wants to be a lawyer. And through what I heard him one day he wants to be a constitutional lawyer. Yes. We love the constitution.

Well, you know, I wish there were more races like Trump. Yeah, that's true. That's true. You know, for really like about president Trump is that, of course, he's not a racist man at all. He's the nicest man you can ever meet, really, very nice, very, very educated and everything. But let me tell you something, what I really like the most about Donald gate Trump is that he is very straight, and he told media what they deserve. Because media is not doing that right job right now. You know, the media we know we know for years out there, you know? So they are not doing the right thing for America. And president Trump did nothing but expose them. And that's what we need and I really like that. Fake news. Fake news, of course. They've been in espanol in Spanish on eBay on telemundo. Other channels in Spanish, they only say like half of the news. And the other car they say, whatever they want. And that's how they like your community. And when I discovered that, and I started traveling around with my friend, dear friend, Bianca Gracia. I started learning more and seeing these more often and then when I went to The White House, I was really surprised by seeing a lot of the staff a president Trump inside of right now. They were Hispanic. Illegal immigrants? Thanks for laughing. That was a joke. I know. We don't know about that. No, let me tell you. If it was Biden, maybe he would take illegal people there.

"M j rodriguez welcome to the times. Thank you you are an emmy nominee. And you've had some time now to process it. What is surprise you about being on this journey. You know what. I think most surprised me about being on this journey and being nominated as an. It's kinda crazy to hear myself say but an outstanding leading actress in a drama series. I think the most surprising thing was being received as an actress being taken seriously within my craft and actually being accepted in the awareness of myself as a afro latina trans woman it's kind of astounding to me because for so long i have my own insecurities but i was also subjected to a lot of discrimination obviously as a trans woman about even two years and even farther back so to see the change happen over time in quicker than i expected. I've just been so flabbergasted by and i'm really proud of myself but i'm also proud of the human race and them actually getting together and knowing that we as trans women are humans too and that we walked this earth just by how they do and that we love like how they do we have hearts how they do. We believe like any other human. Does they're starting to see it and understand it. And it's going to show by receiving a nomination like this. It feels good just to let our audience know you've made history as the first transgender performer to receive an emmy nomination for best actress in a drama series for your performance as blanca. How what do you want the trans community to take away from this moment. And what would you like the cis- community to take away from this moment. What i was specifically like the trans community to take away from this moment is that it's possible. It's even more possible now to really chase your dream as an artist. Whether you're a singer and actress a dancer now. The lane is completely opened. The doors bus down completely. And it's time for you to take your space. It's time to take the space like how you deserve because it's open and the only way that it's going to happen is if you actually take it and you go about it with dignity and grace and humility but you go in with confidence knowing what you want and what i can say to this community. Specifically you know the females community is that you know we're here to uplift each other. Though where different types of women we still identify in the same bracket which is woman whether we'd be trans horses and we're here for each other and now's the time to come together and share space together like how we should have been for a long time and you know. I don't think that's going to be hard for any of this. This woman out there because naturally women were nurturing were carrying. We make it happen so i have no doubt in my mind that women across the world translates the like will open up and become a little bit more collective and knowing that we're here to change the dynamic. I mean woman when the world we run the world assist men out there. I would say start opening up and being our allies and understanding that. There's no agenda for trans women to infiltrate your space to make you feel uncomfortable to the list can go on. This is not a time for your feelings in your masculinity your fragile masculinity and also some toxic masculinity to be forced upon us so that it can make us feel lesser than or be little less instead use your strength in your masculinity to actually uplift us and be comfortable in yourself so that it's not so toxic so i would say that to office people around the world but yeah where here and i don't think we're going anywhere anytime soon and i think a lot of people more than i thought are here for us. I wanna rewind a bit to your early years pursuing acting and i know rent was such a formative production for you. I mean you made your off broadway debut playing angel in the two thousand eleven revival. Talk to me about what rent meant to you in how you look back on that chapter of your life rent was the best love story soliloquy. I could have ever received when. I was eleven years old until i was fourteen and then until i was nineteen. That's show not only gave me a true understanding a full explanation of what it was like dealing with. Hiv and aids on top of being homeless. But it also showed me what a chosen family looks like when every single last one of them have been ostracized these will all people who were displaced. Because of the lives that they lived and not all of them were lgbtq. I it was a mixed group of misfits. That's what rent taught me in amid so much to me. Because of that. Because i was a misfit and i still a misfit. I'm sitting misfit. You know out claim that now and when you are part of that crowd of people who are different you not only get a glimpse of how the world is outside and how they see you but you start to see how you fit in the world sue.

Be even louder and it doesn't have to even be with your words. It could be which presence it could be.

"Justin held a range of jobs such as working on immigration issues that the un and helping to launch a new york city public school. She was also the first women to be hired. As baker for chef daniel balloons three star michelin restaurant. Daniel jesmyn launch hopper at kitchen from her apartment in brooklyn welcome. Thank you so much for having me if i were to walk into hybrid kitchens bakery. Today what would i see. It is truly a hive of activity. Were in this really quirky Building underneath the metro north tracks added one hundred. Fifteen th and park in manhattan. It was ten thousand square feet of public market. Space that We built out into a bakery an incubator. So the first thing you'll notice when you walk into hop kitchen is just thousands of pounds of dough being processed into hallows into an salmon into be all is into persian. Brad's and all of these brides any any time of day. Except for maybe three thirty. Am in the morning. There's bread on the table and women around the table making bread and baking bread. I often am so curious. When i walk into a bakery anywhere in the city and i say these beautiful tarts and croissants syn cookies i'm wondering who and where are they baking this your one example of where it's happening. It's a great question. And you know what i would. I would say the question to wear their baking it. Unfortunately fewer and fewer of them are getting baked in the city. The price of real estate has has left most bakeries kind of moving to new jersey and moving out at the city And people are having to to really travel for those jobs so one of the. I think the real innovations of what we're doing is moving into a community with high density population in helping and high unemployment rate and helping to create a lot of jobs in that area. What are these women doing. Prior to getting trained by you nancy mendez was selling. Dvd's in the subways before she came to hopper catch on live vanessa came with her husband. who's a manager at burger king from bangladesh and. Her story is really interesting because when she came for her interview Her husband came with her and she didn't didn't really let her speak for herself and her english was so limited that she didn't feel confident enough to speak and nahla finesse as one of the managers in the kitchen. Could you talk briefly about your post program placement. The jobs that women get after range from Bakeries in new york city to starting their own businesses to training outcomes. The first is that women Start their own food businesses so A woman that we hired about two years ago named fanny and she came in and learned how to bake once she was in the bakery training program. We realized that she had been running a catering company out of her home kitchen so she was out of her home kitchen. Catering one hundred percent ecuadorian weddings and we helped her formalize her catering business and she graduated to become A member of our incubator kitchen l'amour typical for us is seeking good management track positions in bakeries and manufacturing facilities around the around the city. We have placed bakers at whole foods. We've placed bakers. That means on kaiser danielle. We've placed bakers at other smaller bakeries. That people might not recognize it. A little bit off the off the radar. Hot bread kitchen is a a culmination of experiences that you had. And you had the seed for this idea kind of in your back pocket for almost a decade. What are some events that influenced your your starting. Hpk a for instance. You lived in guatemala where you would go every day with a a mother to a corn mill. Yeah it's it's funny. So i spent some time when i was in college doing development work in guatemala city years later that i remembered this experience but i was living with family for a number of weeks only but i was fascinated by the process of soaking corn and grinding corns of the the woman who was the mother of heads where i was living made fresh corner tears. That were just tremendously delicious. And we we. Every morning we would take the soaked corn and go to a community Malino which is where they grind corn and bring home the fresh masa we would make tortillas and you know at that point i would have never thought that it would end up running a tortilla company ten years later but it somehow is like life. Experience that i- cataloged for this later. Entrepreneurial iteration you also interviewed at an organization called women world banking which also kind of influenced this endeavor. How so the real idea for our kitchen. The real kernel of the idea for hopper kitchen came early on in my professional career. When i have just recently graduated from college. I interviewed for a job. In in new york city for women's world banking which is a phenomenal microfinance institution And i didn't get that executive assistant job. And but i told someone about and he heard women's world baking and for me that was evocative of kind of this this of an immigrant women's baking collective and i still have notes from back then and i. You know my early twenties self. I sort of started to think about what it would mean and got quickly intimidated and realized i didn't have what it would take to pull it off. Started this other career but kind of just kept pulling experiences together and then In two thousand and six learnt how to bake it seems while you still had this thread of immigration an interest in food you also had a strong social mission In your in your pursuits you worked at new york city public school. You helped to launch one. Did you feel like you were kind of fumbling through your twenties or was it more of a very mindful adventure that you were on your somewhere in between. I ended up in graduate school and that felt very intentional. My degree is very specific. I really focused on immigration policy. And i thought that i wanted to get a job doing immigration policy and then the point of graduation i was like oh god what does that mean and i just was not interested are motivated to do that kind of work. Which when i made the switch into public education So i got involved in the school. Start up and i did that for four years so while you were working at the public school you clone yourself and also got a master baker certificate at the new school. When did you decide to do that so i did that. In two thousand and six somebody said to me you know. I had been talking about this idea for women's world baking for a long time and she said well you're not an immigration and you're not a and you're not a baker's why how. What do you have that you bring to this project. So maybe realize i would need to learn how to bake and then the real i think game changer in the trajectory of hot bread kitchen is that i landed this apprenticeship and the bakery at restaurant danielle and my my first day at work i think it was really telling 'cause i loved being in the bakery. How did you land that apprenticeship which ultimately translated into a full time job where you were the first women hired in the bakery. My boyfriend now husband my boyfriend. At the time. Who's now my husband had been had worked in the front of house in wine service at danielle and he introduced me to mark fiorentino. Who is a benevolent wonderful human. Being who took pity on my week baking skills and and took me under his wing and taught me at that point..

You can't beat it just starting you can start for free and this is another reason. I shows anger. Fm all the work. You do there many times in today's world that if you're not super famous a super-rich that people tend to look at you as someone unworthy. Perhaps you're not super rich super famous and let us face it in today's world certain jobs. Just don't even pay a living wage. This brings me to something. I had read somewhere. That job is what you make of it. And i said sure then came this two encounters one office supply store my daughter and i had gone there to make a large amount of copies and the clerk was so good about expanding all the options. We had in order to make it work for us. I thank him for his kindness and he seemed generally surprise after all. He is probably like this all the time just part of his job but is it a few days later. I went on a saturday morning to my local supermarket which i dread going there Because the lines are now longer than ever since covert we in line and waited and a young woman does seem too good for her job proceeded to tell us we should go to the next Cashier and it turned out that she was closed. We turned around and said to her. You sent us to a cashier that as close and then she just Send us to another cashier That had like another person waiting already. They're violating the protocol for covid since we were really next to the person in if not we would have to wait where everybody was going by And then another worker proceeded to come over and say to her. I guess they just don't want to wait nosy. I said Nobody funny she was somehow a few minutes earlier when she was telling the too good for this job. They just don't want to wait the takeaway from this was that i always believed honor. The work you do thinking that you are too good or too good looking or makes some side comments to another worker In the service to everyone there are many people who are good. Workers need to work and need a job. Work is just that work for sure are jobs where there are situations. No one should have to tolerate by. But i'm not talking about those situations. I'm talking about every day. Probably underpaid jobs the jobs we conham people do the postman. The people who clean our streets the sales clerks babysitters you name it. A some point some of us have had jobs we hate it where on the pay impossibly underappreciated but you know that you know what you honor the work you do by respecting yourself and the people you service till next time remember life is for the living. Live it and stay well to next time..

Kobe is just got me thinking about all the things you forget to appreciate. There are times that i get of the sky from my bedroom window and every so often. I see the moon and all the different faces. It goes through from a quarter moon to a full moon. Sometimes the moon is much bigger Embroider and other times you can barely see it but you know it's there somehow. This kind of contemplation got lost. We all remember to look up at the sky when there is a of some kind of a special moon or some other event. That is not likely to happen for another two hundred years or more then it becomes this media event not the quiet of just observing the beautiful sky above us. Looking up is the time for quiet contemplation. Just enjoying the view. It time to just let your mind wander a time of quiet peace while for now. Remember that life is for the living.
