Interview With Pulitzer Prize Winning Author, Ronan Farrow

"I go backwards and forwards on the first question of wearing and when will you happiest. Because we're so encouraged to be happy all the time rather than the place that we're headed. I don't think that's a well not to be terribly pedantic right out of the gate but you know what is happiness is what you come very quickly and answering this question rided any way and i also found it. Surprisingly hard to answer by any metric that there are a lot of professional moments of fulfillment that came to mind as the answers. Getting a tape of harvey weinstein trying to entrap a woman. After months and months of trying. To get that those are obviously moments of fulfillment of kind. But then i think was a happy then because those high points were also marked by a lot of stress and can also be frankly kind of scary. I mean i think both on a level that any writer would relate to where. You're in the zone crafting a scene but also you're on a terrifying deadline and stressful. And you're afraid you're going to fail. And there's a lot riding on anything particularly when it's investigative reporting and in ways that are unique to my kind of work which is very combative in some ways and you know there are sometimes private. Investigators hired to follow me around and smear me in various ways so those moments of the film and are often entwined with ryan easy. And i don't know of happiness quite captures what those moments our exclusive. No i agree. It is part of the satisfaction of doing an incredibly hard job. That is dangerous and frightening at times but also incredibly necessary and then that paying off. I think there are ways in which that's a healthy happiness. If you were doing something whatever your profession is that you feel is contributing in positive way to other people's lives. That's a great thing to nurturing yourself. On the other hand that can take a lot of unhealthy forms. Yeah i i know and really respect a lot of great war reporters who famously do get high off of being in conflict zones and during time spent in in some of those types of places you encounter a lot of those people who are in it maybe for all the right reasons but also i think you know if they were to search themselves on a personal level. It's probably not the healthiest thing that they need to be in those high octane places all the time so is that happiness or is that kind of getting a certain kind of high again regardless of how noble the intentions

Transforming Infused Biologics into Injectables

"Rene, thanks for joining us. Thank. You Danny a pleasure to be here. We're GONNA talk about how It's enhanced drug delivery technology and how the company has rebuilt its business strategy around this, let's start with enhanced though what is enhance? That's a great question. Enhance is based on the proprietary enzyme recumbent Human Highly Rana Days Ph twenty. There is a human enzyme on human, highly Rhonda's enzyme and on accommodate version of that. I'd be happy to go into a little bit more about how it works if you'd like. What's the normal function of the enzyme in the body? Okay. So a little bit of biology then. So if you think about the Subcu-, if you think about the skin, there are three layers, the epidermis, the Germans, and then subcutaneous stays. The subcutaneous space is primarily composed. Of fact, some structural components like Alaskan in college, and then a sugar call highly Ronin. Hiring Ronan Forms Gel like substance in the subcutaneous as and this is what's important when it comes to enhance that that GEL like substance creates a resistance to injecting omnium into this up you space the typical volumes you can inject are usually wanted to amounts of subcutaneous. And so. What the enzyme does is it is it breaks down the highly Raanan as as you're jetting drug and the Enzyme Co formulated together. If rates out highly on, she can actually deliver large volumes of injections subcutaneous slow. And that's how drug. Works. So, when we think of That are infused into a patient is volume the issue of why those drugs get infused as opposed to inject it exactly most of the biologics are large lions and they can be sixty, nine, hundred miles. It depends on the concentration if a partner if a company wants to coach with smaller injection buying that could be administered subcutaneous -ly they we co formulated with our enzyme and that formulated product is injected. subcutaneous league are typical products. are in the range of five to twenty EML's. which is allow a lot more than the standard one to two that you can deliver without the enzyme. And what is it actually doing wants it's formulated with a biologic. So, it doesn't do anything to the biologic. But when you inject the CO formulated product into the subcutaneous face, the enzyme breaks down the highly are mentioned that the skin it's a sugar that's naturally in the skin. It breaks it down and opens the state think about like opening the secure space that larger volume have be dispersed, and some of the drug can then be absorbed into the. Circulation. So it facilitates fat sub Q. Injection Large on fluids. What does it take to actually formulate a biologic with enhanced? Does it actually? Does it require doing something to bind it to it or is it just a matter of exciting it into the liquid? It's more than mixing. So typically what we do when we work with a partner on their therapeutic, is we I WANNA, make sure that the enzyme is compatible with their drug at there's no effect of the drug on the vice versa. So we test for compatibility. Then we would test for stability making sure that the two men combine the enzyme on the drug are. Stable a long period of time so that the drug can be manufactured I'm sitting on the shelf for a period of time. One says diamond than simply mixing the two together and the amount of enzyme relative to the amount of drug is extremely small the environment in the order of micrograms of material verses, the drugs which are usually in milligrams. So thousand fold differences.

Harvey Weinstein experienced heart palpitations, high blood pressure en route to Rikers, attorney says

"Have you seen has been rerouted from the notorious rikers island jail to a hospital. Just hours after the disgraced movie. Mogul was found guilty to sex crimes. He is facing as many as twenty nine years in prison. Erica Hill is out front. Harvey Weinstein wants one of the most powerful men in Hollywood now. A convicted rapist. Weinstein with his manipulation is resources. His attorneys publicists and his spies did everything. He could to silence survivors but they refuse to be silent. They spoke from their hearts and they were heard. At least one hundred women have now publicly accused Weinstein of actions ranging from unwanted sexual advances to rape he has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. Six of those women testified at his New York trial over the past month on Monday. A Manhattan jury found Weinstein guilty on two counts committing a criminal sex act and third degree rape charges based on testimony from Miriam Haley and Jessica Man Hayley told the Cord Weinstein forced her into a sex act in two thousand six while man testified. He raped her in twenty thirteen during an abusive relationship. This 67-year-old was acquitted. On more serious charges of predatory sexual assault against both women and first degree rape against man immediately taken into custody. Weinstein faces five to twenty five years in prison for the criminal. Sex Act charge at a maximum of four years for the rape charge. Ashley Judd. Who accused Weinstein of sexual harassment? In a bombshell New York Times story published more than two years ago tweeting for the women who testified in this case and walked through traumatic. Hell you did a public service to girls and women everywhere. Thank you gratitude to the brave women who testified to the jury for seeing through the dirty tactics of the Defense Roseanne Arquett. Our cat publicly accused. Weinstein of sexual misconduct in a separate story for the New Yorker written by Ronan Farrow in response to the verdict fair. Lauded the many women who came forward at quote great personal cost and risk. Please keep those women in your thoughts. Today he wrote Weinstein's attorneys who planned to appeal also tells CNN. They don't think he could get a fair trial in part because of the intense media coverage they also believe the. Da wanted to make an example of him. District Attorney's Office wanted to shame Mr Weinstein and they wanted to get him on all counts. I think clearly throughout the course of this trial through cross examinations or the evidence we put forward. There was a reasonable doubt a grave reasonable doubt as to whether or not these crimes were proven. We're also learning a little bit more about why he was taken to Bellevue. Rerouted there Aaron. We're learning from his attorney. He was feeling chest. Pains having heart palpitations and high blood pressure. We can also tell you C. N.

Top 10 Performers of the 2010s

"Actually I am kind of I write poetry Snow Book Secret Notebook or your poet. Yeah that's great but you like to hear what sure sure it doesn't really Ryan though. Okay kind of like him better when they don't me to all right so we've heard your number ten. We've heard my number six Adam driver. Who's your number nine performer? The decade? Okay boy this hurts me because it wasn't too long ago I was asking if this was the best actress of the twenty tens and I still think she's in the conversation but Elizabeth Moss. When I sat down to do this list fell down to number nine okay and I think for me. It's it's partly again. I'm backing into the list here. It's partly because her strongest work was on television. I don't know if it's fair. We're a film show so I'M GONNA hold that. It's not fair okay. It probably isn't yet to discount the handmaiden and madman but you're right if you include those. Then how is she? Not One of the performance of the Dick and Jane campion's crime series top of the lake. Yeah so so you know those three works alone in her work in them specifically I mean madman. I made the argument. She's as crucial to that series. Almost as crucial. Let's say Don Draper. She was the lead in in Top of the lake in the lead the handmaid's tale but I look back at the big screen to and The one I love I think great in. I know you love the film more than Me Adam but the collaboration with Alex. Ross Perry's Ben. My favorite thing about those including are probably hurt toured force performance of the last. Ten years is in her smile. I think just from last year and then yeah squeezing in that great supporting part in US last year as well getting to show her comic chops I had to keep her on this list but when I started comparing her to the filmography we're going to get to higher up. Yeah I couldn't put up there at the very top. Yes same process with me. Though she slipped a little further I did begin by ranking top ten actresses top ten actors then figured out how to merge them and go made the cut. I Have Elizabeth Moss in my six through ten actresses but did not make my top ten overall. My number ten is an actress. And this is one where you could accuse me Josh of maybe looking ahead a little too much but I think the foundation of great work in this decade is also there. She is the only other one that woman I'm about to mention. She's the only other one with driver who feels to me like locks. We could already pencil them in for when we're doing this list in ten years okay. We're GONNA look back on the twenty twenties and go. Of course. This was the decade of Adam driver and of Sir Sha Ronin the three great performances come in Brooklyn in Lady Bird and of course last year in Greta. Gerwig 's little women and there's two great films there for me all time great films frankly in Lady Bird and little women. I'm less high on Brooklyn though I like Brooklyn quite a bit and I really do think. It's a wonderful performance from her. She also appears of course in Wes. Anderson's Grand Budapest hotel and I really liked her in Joe. Wright's Hannah for me. Ronin is the insistent innocent. There is some naievety about her. As you look at those performances Brooklyn ladybird little women but really just a lack of experience. There's the census. She still has a lot to learn about herself and about the world and relationships. She's going to make mistakes. She's GonNa make a fool of herself but that's because she's always going to put herself on the line there is a determination and there's a voracious nece to Ronin characters that I find really appealing. I was looking back at my notes from our review of Lady Bird and I mentioned the way she just kind of burns with this intensity and this focus. It's almost like she's from another planet in the way she talks and the way she studying the people she's engaging with there is this provocation that is inherent to the lady bird character where she's just so eager to expand her knowledge her base of knowledge. It seems like that's what she's after in every encounter in life and maybe more than anything. Josh the reason why I wanted to make sure I fit. Ronin on this list is I just want to continue to put out into the universe. This idea that I did see floating around social media after a recent Hollywood reporter with Ronin and Greta Gerwig where they talk about future collaborations with each other. And there's a great question by the interviewer posed to Gerwig about working with Ronan and differences in working with her now versus lady bird and I thought Gerg's answer was really instructive. She says it's the benefit of working with someone you've worked with before. I felt like in some ways I had conceived lady bird before I knew she was playing it and I'd written drafts of little women before I knew she was playing it but I don't know any other way to say it. Except she was an author of Lady Bird but even more so she was an author of little women. I felt like she knew exactly what we were making the whole time as a filmmaker as much as an actor she really became a second director for me. It was like an extension of every thought. I had she'd walk out in another step. I think honestly the closest I've had to it is writing. With Noah Noah Baumbach who is her partner. But that's fitting of. Gerwig I think in her personality that she so generous in giving Ronin all that credit as an artistic collaborator but I think it speaks to the intelligence and again that voracious nece that comes through in her character's it's probably embedded within ronin herself. That made her such a good collaborator with Gerwig. And the key line from this is Gerwig saying I'm interested to see what movie we make when searches in her fifties. And I'm in my sixties. WoN'T THAT BE INTERESTING? And I'm thinking that's great but I want to see the movie that you make together when searches in her thirties when searches in her forties. I can't wait until the fifties I would be perfectly content of those to just continue to make movies together until the end of time. So Sir Sharon did just sneak onto my list ten. Hey I like your band with Jona rubies. Len Fans knew awesome.

Author Seth Berkman on 'A Team of Their Own: How an International Sisterhood Made Olympic History'

"We have another amazing righteous yet. His name is Seth Berkman. He is journalist by second journalists. We've had on the show but I'm a little bit of a twist. He has been the contributor at the New York Times nine since plenty of twelve he's also been published Yorker. ESPN other national outlets and this focus is actually on sports with an emphasis in perception the Asian athletes and we are catching him at this next exciting phase of his career. He is an author now. He published a book called a team of their own. How in the International Sisterhood Olympic history about the Korean women's hockey team in the two thousand Eighteen Olympics? That sounds like yes. Yes yes so. Thank you again for coming through. I guess we'll just go right into both. I mean so for for those the for those of YOU OUGHTA be watching. I don't know when and how this is how to book. Looks like a desk. The author right there on you know what I mean. Eight represent and Korea Korea. You know saying team of own available in all major bookstores available. Now so let's talk about this go. Who on the surface kind of book about sports and like players and identity? But you also talk about how this book really explores gender under an immigration in communication and that how do basically three identities of South Koreans like North Americans who you have a Korean heritage DOPP DIS as you call them imports and also towards a few weeks. Before the Olympic stars they find out they have to play with North Korean Ain't players so basically pulled from the diaspora and just kind of the hockey team. Right is that what happened. Essentially it's like a peeping pop pop of hockey players. They just kind of Joe hit. Go ahead you thank God. Damn tell us about your book in the very concise Nice way just for our listeners who are encountering it for the first time short and so it makes me think I once heard a long time ago. When you're writing a book someone told me that you should be able to explain it? One sentence I haven't been able to do that only because there's so many layers but to give you kind of just a simple breakdown to me. What the essence of this book is eventually? It's a search for identity a search for belonging that I think anybody can really relate to and what really sticks out to me. Is this give and take take that developed over time. So you had like you mentioned players from Korean-americans Korean-canadians North Koreans and South Koreans all forced on this one one team together over time though you saw this give and take develop between the sides for example. The Korean American Crean Canadian players like you said that imports they they never attached much their identity. They never felt Korean growing up. It was just language. Some of them grew up in rural North Carolina. So there were yeah no real strong connections or cultural aspects. They're going to Korea. Living in South Korea among young women obviously obviously changed that started develops stronger feelings towards Korea than on the other hand when you have the South Korean nationals. These half the team were teenagers. Fourteen fifteen eighteen sixteen year old girls on their growing up in Korea. And they're at that age where they're questioning everything they're having these thoughts emotions for example. Some players battled all depression but they never spoke about that openly just because in Korea it so taboo. Depression is still very new. Run around and there were even some players who had questions about sexuality their owns actuality. They just couldn't talk to their friends at school. Their people they knew increase about this but when the imports it's came over it became like an open book. You know they basically had these. QNA sessions where anything they wanted to ask about emotions or sexuality the imports. I would tell them. Oh it's okay that you can have these feelings. And so like I said you had this give and take between the exchange and I think that's what the book starts to really bring out is just how the sense of belonging grew from these two from opposite ends of the world basically coming together and forming this team. This little family that they did and going back to what Jackie said about. This is like a situation. You had a really crazy breakdown of how this team got recruited rooted because you know career finds out. Yeah we got the bid for the Winter Olympics. Oh we don't have a hockey program. So can you tell us then. Refresh the people who haven't read the book of how they went about recruiting in how unconventional it was so two thousand eleven. South Korea gets the bid to host the Winter Olympics in two thousand eighteen. So they celebrate immediately but then it dawns on them. Oh Shit we have to create a hockey team. Olympics hockey is a centerpiece sport of the Winter Games. No one in South Korea. They'll really plays hockey at all. So what they did. Was Korea Ice Hockey Association of a man who works in the public relations relations department. Basically he went on Google and googled women's Hockey College Women's hockey teams in the. US and Canada pulled up the rosters and looked at but names that sounded Korean or if they had pictures took note of players. Look Korean when I interview early on even said the first few players he found. Were actually Chinese. These there was like a Yang and a Wu and he never heard back from them but he is a cree. How can anyone who looked? Possibly Korean sounded like later Korean rename reasons. How like an excel sheet of a name? Exactly eventually he stumbled on a few that responded to them but at first when they were contacted they thought they were being spammed. Damned pranked emails. Broken English Green Symbols Ronan was like something at dot com got even like an official government in my email account and so the first person that kind of bit you know took the bait was She actually had an uncle lived in South Korea and so he when in an e content to Kia loughry ice hockey association. Verify you for sure Kia C.. Kriss oil great pat branding confine your and they reach out to him and he was like. Yeah we're interested in bringing your daughter over here to represent South Korean the Olympics and that's how these korean-canadian free in America players kind of latched onto the team. Yeah well it's interesting that they think bank just like you looking Korean is what makes you Korean route. You know if they're looking at Asian faces.

Race Still to Close to Call in Iowa

"Been nearly a full all day since the start of the Iowa caucuses and we still don't know who won partial results show former south. Bend Indiana Mayor Pete. Buddha judge is leading with about twenty seven percent of the state's delegates followed closely by Vermont. Senator Bernie Sanders with twenty five percent and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren trailing with eighteen. MM Percent Party. Officials said the delay was due to a bug in the APP that was being used to report the caucus results last night. Prompting officials to tally up the results manually Democratic Party chair troy price addressed the delay late Tuesday. Now the fact is is that as we started doing this Last night it took longer longer than we expected and so but the my paramount concern is making sure that these results are accurate and reflect what happened last night. In Caucuses across the state. We're going to do just that. And that's we're GONNA take the time we need to joining me now from Washington with more details on just what happened and how it's going to affect the rest of the twenty twenty race and his Wall Street Journal reporter Chad Day Chad. The candidates are already focused on New Hampshire which holds holds. Its primary next Tuesday. How has the delay in results from Iowa impacted their momentum? I think what it's done is it's basically allowed. It's actually given in a big boost to candidates who maybe didn't perform that well in Iowa. It's allowed them to be able to have an entire night where each one of the candidates are able to go out and have a victory speech. And then say we're going on a New Hampshire without. They're actually having been results. Come out and so you know in terms of momentum it actually is robbed You know the winner of the of the caucus from having that spotlight and and you know really what. The Iowa caucuses always kind of serve as is a way for people to kind of pick up momentum going into the next states. And maybe that's not going to happen as much here because every single one of the top candidates was able to say. We're on New Hampshire sewing new last night that these votes are going to be delayed. What is the latest Info you can tell us about the cause because of the delay in results? What more have we found out about the APP use to report the results in what went wrong last night right? So what we're finding out dribs and drabs are coming out out now and I think we still don't know everything that's happened But what what happened was that they were rolled out this APP to be able to tabulate the results and they were trying to do this so that it would be a lot faster to get the results out. Obviously that didn't go the way that they wanted to instead There were problems on one end where people were not properly trained with. The APP didn't know how to use it and then on the other end it's that win. Vote tabulations were being put into the APP. They were actually collecting that information correctly but they were not reporting out correctly. And so whenever I W- Officials noticed that and and saw that problem. They basically had to revert to the backup system and start going through a you know reviewing each one of the paper trail of each one of the caucuses and so that is obviously taken a lot of time and resulted in there being almost a twenty four hour longer delay in seeing any kind of results and how about the logistics of what's been happening overnight tonight and for much of today confirming vote and checking the accuracy. How did that work well? So what they're doing is they're making sure that there that the vote tallies that are actually in the computer system matchup. What's up with the paper trail that they had at the different caucases seven more than seventeen hundred caucus sites across Iowa? And you know one thing that kind of has gotten missed in this is that yes you know. We didn't see results last night. There were expectations that they were gonNA come out. There was a problem with this APP. However you know th the backup system that was in place Appears to be working you you know. They didn't release any results. That were Ronan instead. It appears that the party is trying to make sure that you know they're getting it right and so I would urge you know a little bit of caution in is we're looking at this as you know it was kind of a disaster. An embarrassment for the party. Yes it was. It's not what they expected to have happened. But in terms of actual votes being manipulated or actual votes. What's going out to the public That were Aronie issue. No that did not happen and importantly the party. The Democratic Party in Iowa has confirmed that there was no security breach or anything like that you know. I think what we can say is that the party has said that they have not seen signs. There was any kind of security breach. Hack it's very difficult to make that determination I would. I'd say what it does appear in. What they have pointed out is that there was a bug in the software for the APP that resulted in problems? And so You know I think what's going to kind looking forward. There's going to be a lot of questions about. WAS THIS APP properly. Tested that have enough review from people who are qualified security researchers or people who do this for a living thing you know and so those are all of the questions that were kind of digging into right now is how did this happen and You know how can you prevent from happening in the future. Yeah certainly a lot. The questions coming out of this and what happened last night is also raising questions about Iowa's role in kicking off the nation's nominating contests and fair to say questions about faith faith in the system. I think that's right. I think you know when voters see this where they see you know irregularities and problems you know that that's going to undermine their faith and so already you have a Democratic Party right now where a large part of it is very suspect of establishment candidates. Very suspect of the DNC and you have a lot of supporters of Bernie Bernie Sanders some of Elizabeth Warren. As well who say that you know this is a Democratic Party needs to be shaken up. And I think that this further you know reinforces some of the our thoughts that You know their suspicion with the voting system. There's suspicion with the Democratic Party and the process. And you know anytime that you have something like this whether it is eh appears so you know right now to be a situation where it's either incompetence or You know mistakes were made and not something where there's a grand conspiracy see. It is going to undermine people's faith in it and that's where in the in the vacuum of information that we've had over the last little while that's why you've seen that kind of bubble up on social media and looking ahead Nevada has now said it will not use the APP that was used last night in Iowa for its caucus which are coming up later this month. Yeah that's right and I think that they basically didn't want to be Iowa you know they saw what happened last night and said you know maybe we should go back to the system that we've used before I also also think that what you'll see from states going forward is that ahead of Iowa's caucuses. They were talking about you. Know setting expectations very high saying that results. We're GONNA come out very quickly quickly saying that. They had instituted all of these kinds of you know a new APP and things like that And that set people up to be expecting things to come out last night. I think you might see other other states. Say you know we're GonNa take our time and you'RE GONNA get results after we verified them And try to set a little lower bar that way people are not you know basically writing on very very high expectations and then very disappointed whenever they don't see results almost immediately president trump of course did criticize the process calling what happened a quote unmitigated Disaster Democrats have also faced calls for greater transparency. Where does this leave us? You know it's really hard to tell because of the way the news cycle goes right now. Everything is so fast paced. And I I think you know one of the things that The candidates hurt the candidates because they kind of missed their window here. We're now going to have a state of the Union we're GonNa have pretty much assured acquittal in the trial and so you know and then all the candidates are looking at New Hampshire and so you know the news cycle is already kind of moving on and so you know whether or not this will have some kind of lasting impact. I'm Allenby something that turns into talking point that Republicans see that they can use it against Democrats or you know whether or not Democrats will look at this and say you know. This was a warning shot. We really need to get things in order in terms of our infrastructure around different caucuses. And maybe we need to rethink Iowa. I think that time will tell right now. It seems very fresh but just given the way that the news news cycle goes You know we'll see if we're talking about this in three weeks and we of course here at the Wall Street Journal. We'll continue to follow that Wall Street Journal reporter Chad Day joining me from Washington. Thank you so much for having me

"It's almost better than sports. The stay in history class is production of Heart Radio Harvey One. I'm eve and welcome to this day in history class. A podcast where we dust off a a little piece of history and place. It ever so gently on your shelf every day. Today is January thirtieth twenty twenty. The day was January thirtieth seventeen three a group of forty six Ronin in order Samurai without a master avenge the death of their deceased master by killing kit a Yoshinaga. Though the event occurred on January thirtieth based based on the Western calendar Japan used a lunar calendar at the time according to contemporary dating the event took place in Gin Roku fifteen on the fourteenth day of the twelfth month. This difference in calendars has caused some confusion. Over the date of the event that said the Japanese temple where the Ronin were buried holds a festival commemorating the event every year on December fourteenth during the Tokugawa period which lasted from sixteen. o three to eighteen sixty fifty seven Japan was under the rule of the shogunate or a military government. The shogun or chief military commander ruled in the name of the emperor. Aw Daimyo or feudal lords were vassals of the Shogun though they were limited from gaining too much independent Power Samurai no longer had to engage engage in battle since Japan was at peace but each Daimyo did hire army of Samurai to protect their families and property in Samurai still had Coz Ziff honor and conduct known as Bushido that they abided by Ronin often became masterless because they didn't fulfil their duties because they were defeated in battle or because because they're master fell from power or die if a summarize master died or was deposed the Samurai could choose to serve the new Daimyo but if his master was defeated or killed in battle or if he did not want to transfer his allegiance. The Samurai may choose to die by suicide. Those who chose to live as Ronin often did so in disgrace the story of the forty seven Ronin. One of the most well-known Japanese history began when emperor he got she yama stint imperial envoys from Kyoto to the shoguns court at Eto or present day Tokyo. A high official named Kiyoshi NOCCO was in charge as master master of ceremonies for the visit US Nagano. A daimyo from echo was one of the daimyo assigned to receive the invoice kid s about training meaning him and another Daimyo in court etiquette but kit a allegedly treated poorly possibly because of inexperience or because the presence awesome offered.

Arsenault was ordered to die by Seppuku. or a form of ritual suicide by disembowelment after awesome knows death. forty-seven his Samurai right led by OAC Yoshiko toes to become Ronin and seek revenge by killing Kita. They started gathering information on kid has house and they split up taking jobs as laborers in merchants to throw Canada and other shogunate officials off their trail. Oishi began to drink alcohol heavily and frequent Geisha the houses to alleviate suspicions and his agents began to think that the Ronin were harmless but on the night of January thirtieth seventeen o three the forty forty.

They then took it as head to Austin as grave at the Sangha cousy temple and the story of their revenge and spread. The ronin were praised by many for their loyalty and for killing Kibbe.

"At ten forty seven. AM We publish. I think we really weren't weren't sure how the world was going to react. The New Yorker releasing its ten month long investigation which includes an audio recording of an encounter between model Umbra Gutierrez and Weinstein spent a lot of the day. Just trying to sort of monitor the reaction and see what readers thought and and you know hear from you how the women who are in reacted and I was just amazed at both how positive visited the reactions of the services. Were and how quickly it sort of blew up. People around the world are coming forward on social media. Yeah to share their stories of sexual abuse their inspired by the many women who have accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and worse. Dominos started good at falling of of other women. Coming forward of people who had had stated Thailand condemning. Weinstein coming out and saying this is off off. But what's really chilling is to read further down. Where more than a dozen staff members say they need a witness these incidents or knew of them of you know criminal precedings Our investigations launching that it blossomed into something much much bigger much faster than I think we ever could have. Expected said it was surreal. What Ronan Farrow has written for the New Yorker pushes the story even further and makes the open secret nature of this alleged behavior? All the more unfathomable. I was feeling very amped up about what it is to exist as a woman in this particular moment. What do you remember about publication day relief relief?.

Jury selection begins in Harvey Weinstein trial

"Jury selection and Harvey Weinstein's criminal trial is underway in New York City Deep with opening statements scheduled for next week the pressure is on to assemble a panel of twelve jurors and about half a dozen or so alternates. The process this has been far from simple the wraps media and politics reporter. Jay Clara Chan has been following the case from the courtroom in downtown Manhattan and she joins joins us now from a courtroom hallway. Welcome to the show anything sadly so a headline grabber. From the case as week was that the Supermodel gee-gee had deed was dismissed. Let's talk about the bigger issues. What do we know about the jury pool size and how the selection process is going? Sure so did actually had sort of a accused stage jury selection process for last week that was essentially what we're calling a pre screening. Prospective jurors given a questionnaire already fill out and then based on their responses on that train drivers psych decide. You know we want to strike this person or not And then starting to gate which was more more exciting About one forty perspective jurors came into the courtroom and so there was a live who questioning period between the attorneys and from on that right after this morning session that just wrapped up. It looks like by jurors have been selected already so one of the things that lawyers for Harvey Weinstein have been arguing. Is that people's history of sexual assault or knowing somebody who is a victim or survivor of sexual assault should disqualify qualify them from serving on the jury. How is that issue been debated in the courtroom one of the sort of bigger misperceptions even for high profile case? It's like this is even the idea of knowing about one or having heard of the accusations about him. That doesn't actually necessarily immediately disqualify someone for the attorneys. It's more picking apart. How does that information potentially impact would that information potentially impact then or give them a by sees When considering the evidence that will be presented before them and then obviously one actually or for that is if perspective juror has experienced sexual assault or I know someone who has experienced sexual assault? I mean that is something that could very much influence how they view a case and for the most part what. We've been seeing so hard hard for jurors who way that has been the case They've sort of stood up and said you know. I don't think I can be fair impartial. And sort of already indicated a kid that they they shouldn't be selected. So that's something we've been seeing there. As potential jurors are being interviewed as part of this process. How much is coming out about? How much they they know about Harvey Weinstein and what he has been accused of trying to varying degree but I think large number of prospective jurors who've come in and have indicated that they're familiar with either him mother person refer somewhat about his case? Obviously there is the greedy shins. And there's some in perspective jurors that say you know. I actually read William Fair books so I feel like I'm bit too familiar with this case therefore I can't be impartial fair And other people might be saying you know I. I've heard about him but I think I can put that aside. And just consider what's being presented as evidence etc testimony Cetera if I were to be selected for jury Ronan Farrow is the author of catch and kill any wrote about Harvey Weinstein in the New Yorker. It sounds like one juror already. Freddie has been held in potential contempt of court over tweeting about the case. What does the judge said about the way the jurors I guess lawyer should be behaving in terms of what they're saying outside of court? Yes that actually happened just this morning. They had called back in. A inspector would sending some tweets that he shouldn't have been And so he's going to have to come back in March after the trial should be all that got to essentially make his case why he shouldn't be held in contempt. I mean I I think even on the first day though when it comes to public comments about the trial or how people should be talking about it You know the judge told the defense you know don't Discouraging towards the witnesses. Don't talk about then if you're giving interviews You know to the jurors. Don't don't talk about the case if you're still perspective or don't talk about this case with family or friends don't text Oh tweet about it etcetera and then also for journalists we have to very careful about You know talking hallways and things. He's like that. We need to make sure that we do not in any way interact with jurors in a way that could put anything like that. We're talking with Jay. Claire Chan from the rap about jury selection in the Harvey Weinstein trial in New York. She's joining us from New York City courtroom hallway. Weinstein's defense team has requested a change in venue. which which I believe the judge has denied what is their argument in terms of why the jury pool in Manhattan may not be impartial to Harvey Weinstein? I think I think it goes back to again. The idea of you know this is a very high profile case And getting that one you know was a prominent person in New York. They're comparing to that. You know it's almost impossible to avoid news of Weinstein here in Manhattan And then also in recent motions they requested then you change multiple times but more recent motions. These awful pointed to a couple of protests that have happened on some of the days of the trial as more examples of you know clearly clearly. This is something that people are talking about. It's unavoidable etcetera things like that but you know the judge has denied their requests in his reasoning. Sort of been when you know because this is a national or international story. There is no place you could go where people would not be likely to have heard him. Sometimes in questions lawyers as potential jurors sometimes emotions they file with the court. You get a glimpse of potential prosecution and defense strategies. He's as any that. Come out so far through jury selection about how this case might be tried to the trial really hinges on the accounts of two women who've come report to accuse teen. Obviously the defense will be very focused on rigorous craft damnation to go cold in these women's stories or to somehow demonstrate teacher that the relationships were consensual or that the alleged victim you know maintaining relationships with Weinstein and the prosecution on the other hand will be demonstrating a pattern of behavior that once you may or may not have engaged in And really focusing on using the the two minutes testimonies along with his to bolster day cases essentially. We're talking to on Thursday Monday. As a holiday. A hundreds of potential jurors are being interviewed. Is it really likely there will be a jury impaneled by the end of next week and that we actually might hear opening statements by unexploited. Actually I do think so. I think we are actually Schedule I'm the December tourneys. We talked to them. I WANNA say yesterday or day before and they were also pretty confident that we would be schedule mean with he this morning session just wrapped up already. Fighters have been selected. So there's still a couple more days if you do this and I. I do think by next Wednesday over here. Opening statements. J. Clara San is a media and politics reporter for the rap. She's covering the Harvey Weinstein trial in New York work and she joined us from a hallway outside the courtroom Clara. Thanks so much for coming on the show

Ronan Farrow says 'close to 50' potential Weinstein jurors were sent home for reading his 'Catch and Kill'

"This week Jury selection started for the trial of Harvey Weinstein. He's as of course this formerly super successful Hollywood producer who was accused of decades of sexual abuse more than eighty women have come forward accusing him of things. The story broke as you remember. This is kind of the beginning of the METOO movement in October of two thousand seventeen in the New York Times and the New Yorker so harvey was finally finally charged with sex crimes in New York in May of twenty eighteen. So that in and of itself is about a year and a half ago I'm not going to get into the charges. But they're horrible So yeah jury. Selection started this week and the other thing that also happened. This week is that new charges were put against him in Los Angeles so now. He's facing the possibility of two criminal trials. Meanwhile he just settled a civil suit a couple of weeks ago. So it's just all all of this tumult around you know he's very horrible allegations and it's really one of the only you know men who is going through the criminal criminal justice process in terms of these accusations. Yeah and we should underline eighty women. You said Yeah Zero Eight zero and then we have these two. You know criminal trials now the one in New York they mentioned we have two women pressing charges one is an unidentified there and even in La both of the women are unidentified in those court documents. So it's also just a big story in terms of you know what it takes to come forward yet another interesting aspect during jury selection. Is You know the idea of trying to find an impartial jury. In these cases right I mean not only are they trying to find people who don't know a whole lot about the story which at this point is extremely difficult Mac that it's been to more than two years and the stories were huge but also you know attorneys are concerned about the possibility of having an impartial. Jury when you know one in and five women have been raped in her life rate and just the idea of even if she isn't super familiar with the Weinstein story just dealing with sexual assault in her life of either herself or someone she knows like could also create someone who is partial in one way or another Ronan Farrow tweeted on Thursday night that he is heard the fifty potential jurors fifty have been released so far we all read his book right and killed and so it's weird. The only thing I will add is that hearing the stories of these women. Yeah you're not only struck by their ultimate bravery in coming forward at great risk in themselves but just the endless amounts of people all right protected. Harvey Weinstein this. Systemic cover-ups over a decade can't get horrifying. It's yeah and it's extraordinary. How much much in how pervasive that was among everybody police and and colleague Turney everybody? Yeah Yeah I want to ask this question about impartial impartial jury and jury of our peers because when we talk when we are supposed to be having our be tried before a jury of our peers so many of our peers have have been victims of sexual harassment or sexual assault and so is it. What does impartiality really mean here? If you're throwing out all of the folks who might have been affected by crimes it's like this that gets even bigger question around. Just the idea of Lake is the crew. Does the criminal justice system work in these cases you know and you look at the fact act that this settlement came out earlier this month where women at least got some money out of it. I mean. Obviously that doesn't result in Weinstein actually going to jail which I would imagine. Imagine is extremely important to a lot of these victims but yeah I mean I don't know I don't know how you get an impartial

"Ronan Farrow Ronin sixteen hundred age eight. Okay so the. Sat is now back to sixteen hundred hundred. Thank God why why. I'm so pissed anyone would have fucked because it means something. Well I was confused saying. They've added a third category brought into what thirty three thousand four hundred. They added a writing portion. It was the year after I graduated. They added that in no. I wanted that I would've. Oh Ah Oh oh yeah I would too. I was a good writer so I missed that boat but then I guess now it's back. I think I think I mean I couldn't find anything on any of these websites saying that the score was higher now so I think it's back to sixteen hundred said. Writing Section is optional optional. And students who choose to take this component of the test received three separate scores each ranging from one to four so that's like a separate thing that one to four roll Oerlikon. Act Score number. It's just an extra thing to do if you wanted to. He wanted extra shit on that. Stressful Day says sixteen hundred. Yeah there were an option on the. Sat for me to just write a short story on any goddamn topic. They wanted to throw my way. That's what I would have picked Dino what you got on your sat. No WH- wh-. Here's what I do know I think told us after Ronin left I took it really young like seventh grade and then I took it again in. I guess the eleventh or Twelfth Grade Probably Eleventh did better on it in seventh grade than I did in eleventh grade. Probably more more reflective of how much I cared at that point about going to college which I did not I was not good at it. You weren't good at. That's surprising that surprises me. I got a thirteen hundred head but isn't that great pretty. It's pretty good. It's great is pretty good but I went as a t class. 'CAUSE I took a couple of times in the first time I got a low sky. Got One so got a one on one thousand maybe I seven hundred and then I took it again. I took it three times three times. Yeah took it again. And I increased my score by fairmount and then I took it again. I increased again and good job. You should have kept. What's the limit? How many times can you take you can? This is another way that this test is a little bit. Flawed favors like rich people who who can spend the money on it. Yeah that's true but my score was even. I got a six fifty for verbal and math. Oh that's that's very very nice. I was pretty proud of that. That's great more of the evenness on the score. Of course you know very symmetrical which just goes to show. It's so silly he doesn't. It has no correlation to anything. Because I am I would say ten times better at English reading comprehension Shen than Merrill skills than I am math so the fact that that did not parlay into the score. Yeah shows it really has nothing to do with anything thing. Yeah so I'd have to imagine. My math. Portion was much higher than my probably free. Maybe because you had to is is recrossed. A lot of reading I can imagine reading comprehension. Well that was yeah. It'd be really tough for a second and look at those paragraphs I it would be in full flight panic like Oh my God there. How many quiet my brain goes? There's so many lines okay. And then news extraneous information in oils very stressful times element of Stressing okay the term in Gay Literature.

It's called the best little boy in the world about gay sons evening to compensate or feeling like they need to be and all of the areas that basically they can let you down and get married and have kids categories not really for the. It's not really that. I don't think it's not really for the parents it's more of. Let's see since young. Gay Men cannot be assured of family support peer approval or God's love as long as they hide their sexual orientation from everyone it may be wise for them not to invest their self worth than those life.

Media's influence on people people Another question is if the facebook group so the story of people haven't seen it is a kittens exactly and posts. The video of it and a group formed on facebook that sort of decides. We're GONNA find this guy. Giuliani style and it really spurs him on on and makes him feel famous which is what he was searching for in the first place and it really escalates from there and there is a question of how. How responsible are these people see now? Yeah that became the big question of the documentary. My issue was an I couldn't get. Kristen narrowly see this The point I was making her maybe she thought and just didn't agree but I was like what's so interesting is all the people involved are living alter egos online everyone. The people hunting him him. And I'm like it's so interesting that all the players in this story Ori are doing. The same thing is no one's playing an evil character wants plane heroic investigators several of them are playing heroic investigators. But they're using different names. Yeah she was saying she can act dumb. She connects Mar.. She loves the ability to be all these different things in this virtual world and I just started thinking of the whole group of people that are drawn that and actually live on a computer. They're drawn to that anonymity are those alter egos. They're all participating in something similar. They're living out a version online that they WANNA be that they're not in real life or at least that differs everybody on social media. That's every single human bearing Lamma Cow. Now everyone showing the version of themselves that they want the world to see. That's maybe ten percent accurate. Yeah so part of me was like this. This guy is he relieve out or is is his online persona evil as we know. That's he no right right but I'm just saying if the online world wasn't an outlet for him is he doing that stuff in a vacuum. I don't know that he is. I don't know that that just him wanting to do that as much as him wanting to play that role on the Internet. I don't know I I think this is a strike to for me to be famous and this is a way this is too easy of away and people will meet you there. People will attach onto your extremes online. I am and so I don't know I think there's something interesting to to take away about our responsibility. I really really couldn't believe at the end of all it was like the Internet is designed in such a way that you don't have a license plate on your car that they can't just know where those but those people are that are writing those things at all time is kind of crazy to me on. You can't figure out who posts a key a murderer video that blew my mind. You can't figure out the cops can't just in one second you can find out who murdered these cats by like. What computer uploaded the video and where the computer sitting at? That's kind of crazy to me. I know especially since in the last episode. You were saying you you can talk to Google and they can send you owe entire history every single place you've been. Yeah so I guess Google Kim but not the police in which seems seems a little weird not fair Okay Yeah. Nda Law in California California will be among the first places is to restrict the use of nondisclosure agreements. ooh interesting it'd be no one already. Last April New York endorse a new law that starting in two thousand thousand nineteen permits confidentiality clauses. Only at the request of the victim other laws are in the works in September. Outgoing governor Jerry Brown signed into the law bill that would ban nondisclosure provision in settlements involving claims of sexual assault harassment or discrimination based on sex the California bill one of a raft of Hashtag metoo inspired laws goes into effect January. First Only God. You're free Oh you know how. He gave that piece of advice for famous parents about maybe giving their kid a different surname. I thought that was interesting because then. Then you're talking about Anderson Cooper and I was like yeah I never think of Anderson Cooper is coming from famous Vanderbilt Gloria Baharan because his name is cooper right so if it was vanderbilt yeah probably would constantly be reminded of that Anderson Vanderbilt. Yeah what a name. I don't think that would be as a successful show.

"About a lot during it anyway. Check that out okay. Ronan Farrow Ronin sixteen hundred age eight. Okay so the. Sat is now back to sixteen hundred hundred. Thank God why why. I'm so pissed anyone would have fucked because it means something. Well I was confused saying. They've added a third category brought into what thirty three thousand four hundred. They added a writing portion. It was the year after I graduated. They added that in no. I wanted that I would've off. Ah Oh oh yeah I would too. I was a good writer so I missed that boat but then I guess now it's back. I think I think I mean I couldn't find anything on any of these websites saying that the score was higher now so I think it's back to sixteen hundred said writing section is optional optional. And students who choose to take this component of the test received three separate scores each ranging from one to four so that's like a separate thing that one to four roll Oerlikon. Act Score number. It's just an extra thing to do if you wanted to. He wanted extra shit on that. Stressful Day says sixteen hundred. Yeah there were an option on the. Sat for me to just write a short story on any goddamn topic. They wanted to throw my way. That's what I would have picked Dino what you got on your sat. No WH- wh-. Here's what I do know I think I told you this afternoon and left. I took it really young like seventh grade and then I took it again in. I guess the eleventh or Twelfth Grade Probably Eleventh did better on it in seventh grade than I did in eleventh grade. Probably more more reflective of how much I cared at that point about going to college which I did not I was not good at it. You weren't good at. That's surprising that surprises me. I got a thirteen hundred head but isn't that great pretty. It's pretty good. It's great is pretty good but I went as a t class. 'CAUSE I took a couple of times in the first time I got a low sky. Got One so got a one on one thousand maybe I seven hundred and then I took it again. I took it three times three times. Yeah took it again. And I increased my score by fairmount and then I took it again. I increased again and good job. You should have kept. What's the limit? How many times can you take you can? This is another way that this test is a little bit. Flawed favors like rich people who who can spend the money on it. Yeah that's true but my score was even. I got a six fifty for verbal and math. Oh that's that's very very nice. I was pretty proud of that. That's great more of the evenness on the score. Of course you know very symmetrical which just goes to show. It's so silly he doesn't. It has no correlation to anything. Because I am I would say ten times better at English reading comprehension Shen than Merrill skills than I am math so the fact that that did not parlay into the score. Yeah shows it really has nothing to do with anything thing. Yeah so I'd have to imagine. My math. Portion was much higher than my probably free. Maybe because you had to is is recrossed. A lot of reading I can imagine reading comprehension or that was yeah. It'd be really tough for a second and look at those paragraphs I it would be in full flight panic like Oh my God there. How many quiet my brain goes? There's so many lines okay. And then news extraneous information in oils very stressful times element of Stressing okay the term in Gay Literature. The best boy in the world thyroid they are. That's what he said. It's called the best little boy in the world about gay sons evening to compensate or feeling like they need to be and all of the areas that basically they can let you down and get married and have kids categories not really for the. It's not really that. I don't think it's not really for the parents it's more of. Let's see since young. Gay Men cannot be assured of family support peer approval or God's love as long as they hide their sexual orientation from everyone it may be wise for them not to invest their self worth than those life. Domains success in these domains cannot be controlling guaranteed when one is gay unlike success in academics. Thanks good luck and being the best at competitive tasks which are relatively more controllable and guaranteed with at least some effort where they can control Bala nation really not to keep getting into shows and stuff we watch but don't fuck with cats. Yeah it's talking about this on the last episode now. It was really now that I've seen it once again. I found myself you know wanting this person to be punished thoroughly with a tremendous amount of compassion and for this kid growing up in Canada being called Gay pejoratives is all life and no friends. How's how's it going to impact you? Yep People don't just arrive place no yet there. By experience of a guy might have been twisted already. rebe yeah like I said last night. Do you think if that bullying hadn't happened. He would have done all the things he did. And I said I don't think just. The absence of the Boeing would have prevented that but I do think if he were totally emerged in a friendship circle and activities and a bunch of other stuff that was rewarding. Yeah I don't think he's on that path. I know I saw breaking. Yeah check it out. Netflix don't fuck with cats. It's a wild wild ride. Sure case a Lotta turns. Strap yourself in your bed. That's an Easter Egg. Oh in another part that this isn't a spoiler about that the a big takeaway.

It's not the story that anyone is going to want to consume or create or anything. Exactly yeah and it was almost considered impolite to bring it up. I mean the example that run. Remember having a biographer. Who had would written an authorized biography of Cosby on this? was you know right before the Shit really hit the fan all over again about about cosby but the allegations had been there for years.

If there's by the way on all of these issues there's always some clip of Tina fey joking at the AH but You know what's funny as well as you were talking about your unique situation and I I kinda went back to the question. I asked you six hours ago. which was why do people have some? I'm kind of pre wired connection protection and you know what I was thinking while I was saying it as I think we're all primed for it by our parents. We love our parents parents in so many of us have pretty deeply flawed parents. And we've learned to love and overlook some pretty big transgressions just in childhood. I think that's where we're kind all primed. It's like Yeah Dad's not perfect. MOM's not perfect but we love them. We're sticking with them. I mean it must be part of the think it varies in these cases. When you talk about a bill cosby or a Michael Jackson I think you do have a generation or this is built into the Woody Allen reaction to I mean there are woody Allen fans fans who just sit on twitter all day and like harass my sister?

God bless her just all she did was sort of dragged along for the ride and I think do the right thing ultimately and supporting my sister. But it's terrible terrible toll and certainly she was never the instigator of any of it. Well no one's even thinking about it for me as a parent like I was molested in there is a parent but thank thank you the parent and as I would be I would take my daughter having been molested under my on my watch way worse than I'd take my own the pain of that that has to be one of the deepest trenches of her sadness agonizing sadness and you know I imagine feelings of guilt over the fact that it happened and let him have access to a horrible horrible thing in private homes have heard her. You know when my sister says you know I'm right in the NOP Adam coming forward and I'm doing I've seen my mom both say the right thing to where like of course they'll support you but also just know this Nami is GonNa come again. Yeah and so I got props to every parent who stood by a child with this kind of allegation the said did you watch Aaron lease wonderful documentary. Sorry about the The Olympic coach Gymnastics Nassar. But that's a horrible story so it's a very horrible story on all levels but for me. The neighbor of at the worst moment was a dad who did not believe as daughter in for years didn't and then eventually came to accept that it was true and then killed himself. You can't even begin to evaluate. The ripples van emanate out from these things and for the kids you have these kinds of. I mean you would understand it better than I. I can't imagine the phenomenon of not being believed by your parents. Rhyme and this is important parents even in the face of all of that machine and dismembering a negative backlash rush that they do stand up for their kids in these cases. Yeah but what I see in that reaction is there are people who they have grown up carrying about out someone and their work and you know and you see that in the Michael Jackson reaction example as well. It's so deeply emotional oil and it does connect to as you say the ways in which you know we look up to our parents and there's no Arguing on a rational factor of in the level for me. I feel like I come at it. Pretty evenly because there's incentives on both sides right in in my sister's case for instance. Yes I care about her and believer but there's a terrible cost to my believing her right off means going up against that whole machines and also like I of all people would love to You know not have a pedophile father.

People are just now starting to speak out some more happening with the Taliban and so forth and and there's been fits and starts to that it's complicated but certainly we lost a window of opportunity where I think there was a viable negotiation path.

I think as an individual was very much not susceptible that he wanted to get out of places assimilationist in that way but also was a political pragmatist and understood the need to fall in line with the military brass various points. And you know you see an interesting thing. Between in terms of the Obama Administration where the first term was marked much more by a rejection of diplomacy and I go through these examples of that in that book and the Second Term Firm did belatedly kind of come around to okay. We need to invest more in diplomatic activity big. I can't remember what I was watching or reading. But his big itself itself admitted failure was a how he dealt with Israel right. That was something he he set out to do with great fervor and it just. He didn't do what he was hoping to do. Do you have four hours to talk about. Let's skin and having dinner with you because let's let's do you hear almost half the time sensibly for the relationship. Bowl is all day long. I WANNA do it. And then appointed by Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state to work with youth or advise on you and the global role in the wake of the Arab spring. It was kind of related to that. Yes you must know so much about that region. I can't believe you're thirty one remembering I feel so so little. You know you talk to these guys. Like Steve Call who've spent decades writing about nothing but that and there's no bottom to that well. Oh yeah you're going to be a specialist Afghanistan Pakistan like you. I have a You know enough of a a knowledge from the years I've spent there and and the investment I've put into reading the history and so forth to understand the contours of what I was writing about in that case but I would not not call myself an expert. Okay so I have a real quick question about being young when your loss by the way she did a little hand gesture. Listen I dropped doc. Speaking for yourself is in charge when you're eighteen and in law school. Aw are people like side eyeing you like do you feel like you're constantly having to prove yourself when you're in that situation because the there's like forty year olds in law. School are they like who is. Is this kid or everyone embracing you. And it's not an issue much more so in college where it was really really young. That's what I want the social. Oh costs fat. I mean you guys could be the judge of how dysfunctional I am as a result of so far so good thank you. We'd have to really know what's going you know. I deliberately went to small schools all the way through true and my scholarship program and Oxford with small amount law. School was small college small and it turned down. You know bigger University settings that I could have been then partly because I knew it was gonNA be Weird as hell to be a kid in these classrooms. I wanted to be in a place where I wouldn't fall through the cracks and where people would be Sweden supportive nurturing and they really were. I was very fortunate in that respect. I mean I have all sorts of residual trauma from like childhood stuff and and from some of the public part of the really do growing up in the spotlight and then making a lot of public enemies in your work you get you know smeared and he eased and terrible negative stuff said about you publicly that can be its own form of the equivalent of high school bullying but actually because I skipped high school and and then I was in these settings where people were actually quite lovely. By the time I was in law school where it's an older more mature crowd. They were just great. I mean some of my best.

"Not in the Weinstein thing certainly not in many of them but in some of of them I do have a hunch. Both people sincerely believe they're telling the truth. I think we do a process experiences so differently again with the baggage of fears and insecurities. We all carry as we already discussed. I have events in my life that you would think would be. There's no way we remember this differently. My brother and I watching seen my mom get beat up by our Stepdad. That's a very memorable experience. He has it in a completely other house that we lived at. We have it in different houses and we have the you know what I'm saying when I experience in my own life that kind of distance of like how could we have this drastic different memories of this experience and yet I witnessed it all the time. And benign things. Aren't there many cases where it's like. I believe her and I believe him. I believe that they may have had completely different experiences. Appearances walking away from the situation so I certainly in principle that can be true. I think that in the stories that I have chosen to report. They're actually on a specific subset that that is about sufficiently violent criminal allegations that you don't get into those gray areas as much. I mean the prominent examples of stories about sexual violence that I've reported really are sometimes. There are less violent anecdotes in there that are meant to establish an mo but they're always rooted in in very very serious criminal claims where there wouldn't be a lot of room to have been a reasonable interpretation of events that would be a totally essential. Is it frustrating. Because I can tell by that answer. You're making a real distinction as you totally should between what you've reported did it on and what I will just say when I read the Z's account I of course that the difference is it frustrating to and I think how might be guilty of having sometimes lumped you into all of the stuff in is is it frustrating and all that what you're doing such a specific thing. I mean this is where we get back to. The distinction talked about earlier like I am not the high priestess of the metoo movement. Toronto Burke who founded the METOO movement in that term and is an activist working in the trenches is with survivors. You know advocating for them. She's the high priestess of the me too and those are different jobs. I mean I admire her so much. She's truly bad as individual all. And I'm really grateful as a reporter that you can put out facts into the world. And then there are activists who have an agenda and turn them into change. That's a meaningful part of our. Our culture should work but actually to preserve the independence of this kind of reporting. I don't even get involved in that. I don't really have attend. Of course I care about the issue. I have a belief if that you know a variety of the issues. I've reported on need more attention on them. Yeah but I really maintain the posture of going wherever the facts. Take take me and not going forward with the story if they don't feel like it's rock solid and not being an advocate for my sources. You're trying to respect them and make them feel protected in the process But you're not carrying water for their set of facts until you have the evidence to back it up so that is a hard distinction. Shen and yes. I I think for outside observers. Who just here swirl of names yeah they understand? There's a lot of social change happening around this issue. There's no reason into necessarily understand like this person as a reporter and this other person is an activist and this other person as a source who came forward but it is relevant. Because I was talking to my wife about you I guess maybe it was when you were on Bill Maher recently and she made a point to say to me. Ronin commitment is to investigate situations that that is what you're you're Kinda mission is your mission isn't to like you're not trying to go expose every person who's what you believe in everyone should be heard and everything and should be investigated. I love your wife. I love her even more hearing that she's heard my talking points. Hey I was. I thought maybe you're 'cause yes. I am very supportive of the movement and yet at the same time I kind of reject believe all women. I just don't believe all anybody to know and it's actually. It's antithetical medical to what I do to to say. Believe all anybody. I've always been very clear I talk about this. A lot in my ethos is listen to wall survivors of sexual violence. Listen to all women. Listen to a many categories of people. We weren't listening to for too long and I think the best service yes you can do to claims of this type is to investigate them thoroughly and even adversary. I was having this conversation for one of these episodes of the podcast with A. Ah Young Woman named Emily Nester. Who was one of the first Weinstein accusers to come forward and had you know documentation to back it up and so forth so so? Her account of events was very important to the early phase of the reporting and she was reminding me that I basically I grilled her to the point where it was an extraordinarily unpleasant process for her. I've I've made sources cry with my question. I mean it's it's as every question your denounces going to ask ultimately right that's right. Yeah kind kinda like when you prepare a witness right for testimony you have to act as the prosecution. Even if you're the defense with the important distinction that I'm not I don't have the agenda preparing preparing them. I literally have the objective of finding out. What's true rights and God bless every source who puts up with that signs up for it stands like? That's it's part of the process and I try to do it in a way that's compassionate and makes them feel safe but also you know I think ultimately they understand that's important as I was reading about your life in your underpin status graduating at fifteen and then went on to Yale Law. School got a doctorate in law. Won't buckle the fuck up your Rhode. He's got to know is insane. It's preposterous but in. He passed the New York bar. So I have to imagine at some point you. At least we're considering practicing the law you know you get into this tunnel vision when you're in any closed universe like that like legal profession in my case and I think I knew going into law school even going to Yale Law for people who don't know law school Yale Law is Kinda. It's the Montessori School of Law Schools Schools our bill and Hillary where bill and Hillary they turn out a lot of the great sort of legal professors and judges the stereotype about the places like you. Kinda don't don't learn black letter law. They're gonNA hate me for saying but people don't go there and then there's the vast majority of them in fact do. There's plenty of Great Braxton. I think the law but just relative to the competition relative to a Harvard law even their quirks jail all like you don't have to take property there's basic you don't have to take tax like there's basic gaps in your legal knowledge. I'm going to merge with I love that about the place because you can have this incredibly we kind of Philosophical Legal Education and I was very very fortunate to be able to go there and use it as training. That didn't didn't necessarily have to be for practicing or too big law firm so I was a summer associate at a big firm but I knew pretty early on that I wanted to do something a little more public services. Let's see I guess right so looking at the road it would appear from the outside and correct me if I'm wrong that this specific focus of your journalism Seems to have found you is that is that accurate you worked in the Obama Administration and you were doing work in Afghanistan and Pakistan with how the US government is interacting with non-governmental in civilian populations over there right. Yeah so I was there in two thousand nine in. And there was a a resurgence of what came to be known as Coin Strategy Counterinsurgency Strategy and it was a school of thought the champion by in general portray us in the idea. was you send. The soldiers into the community is and there's a series of steps where you know you you clear throughout the enemies but then you're actually like living with the local population and trying to win them over and there's a huge body of debate about. Is this a terrible full approach. Is this a good approach. And you know ultimately I wrote a book failures of our policy in Afghanistan war on piece by now but You know in this case I was writing about is how are militarization of foreign policy. That happens as we scale back. Our investment in diplomacy almasy can backfire and how Afghanistan is a great example of that. And there's many many great books about how we've messed up Afghanistan Astana over and over again. And it's this quagmire and famously the graveyard of empires an. I don't know that I'm going to be able to offer any new insights into that in this conversation but I think that whatever the merits of that counterinsurgency strategy that we were just talking about it did not work there right. Did you have the sense. San Cited as you're flying over Afghanistan. There's nothing to capture. It's the most kind of theoretical place to have a war. There's no town to overrun on. There's there's nothing it's just mountains and deserts and you fly from one previous Soviet base to another previous Soviet base. And you realize like this isn't really elitist thing you can get your arms around yet. Everyone's there you know again. I'm not I'm not making a case for Oregon's involvement there. What blows my mind is we? Just keep making making this mistake of thinking and it's often it's out of the Pentagon our our military brats just is able to sell our whatever the white houses at the time on this idea that we can win and it's just not how it works over and over again going back to the proxy wars of the Cold War era in the whole country of Afghanistan as it exists now is a creation of proxy wars gone wrong. Yeah and that's not.

"I I think it's fair. It just shouldn't be applicable. If you have five committed I am totally for some crimes then generally rurally. I'm against them across the board. I kind of am because even if it's not criminal it's still a way to to inflict power on somebody in general and even just treatment behavior all of that stuff even if it's not like a criminal thing or a well but let's just For us in our exact situation. Let's say so you're coming into the house in you're going to be exposed to every aspect of our life and then now you're in a position addition if you were a piece of shit what's your not to go write a book about the fact that I far too much and I just like embarrassing angle needs in here all the time he farts too much. Well embarrassing grows stuff that could potentially let's even say a diminished my income because Samsung doesn't want a guy who's got pulsa flatulence to sell up refrigerator and now hold only so in some way some non-disparagement Cla Leave the two are related. And there's a lot of overlap. I don't I've observed that Chris Index had sex in three months. Like there's this I I totally agree but let's say that you do something to me. I get fired because of that. Let's say that also affects my my income moving forward if I'm trying to get another job and I can't because I can't really say well. This is actually what happened. I I don't think that's fair. I know I agree. So are you seeing non-disbursement. Sounds like that would be the compromise. I think there are always going to be valid. Applications of confidentiality clauses. Says of some kind. I mean I'll give you a more clear-cut example. You're a scientist working in a lab on some incredibly sensitive technology for for you know whatever a car company and they have to be able to limit contractual in some way you bring that to a competitor. There's there's very clear cut. Cases is where I don't think this is a terrible social ill to have this as a legal institution agreed to your point. Monica that they were over used widely and particularly tickets in the context of the kinds of stories. I did just years of working with sources who were scared shitless because they had signed the bad version of this. which is you know? Harvey Weinstein impeded me a million dollars to destroy all evidence of the crime. He did And never speak about it again. That's one of the episodes of the podcast is about this young woman. Ambra Tehran's who participated in a police sting and got a recording them admitting to groping her very dramatic crazy story. He gives her a million dollars and and she signs away her right ever talk about it and has all devices scrubbed of the recordings and thankfully a secret way to preserve a copy. Do Yeah Yeah I feel like if a criminal active something criminal has happened that should pretty much void. Nda Is there any room legally for that to be part of how their instructors so that should be the case and there's conversations happening in different legislative bodies now about how you make that ah more clear and like actually preemptively preventing them from being used in cases of sex crimes. I think that that actually is now the case in California in the wake of this report is an NDA. You should probably say. Well I will sign this but what I want included in this is that this is excludes any kind of sexual misconduct towards me or something car. In various jurisdictions that is now mandatory already row for nine Ken on At this point do the kind of agreement I just outlined of it is expressly for the purpose of covering up a sex crime so lawyers who are engaged in brokering that kind of agreement should know that yeah. They can't do that and they should put a stop to it. If someone is trying and now just in a juicy gossipy way do you have a sense of global sense or cumulative sense of what Harvey had paid out over the years. I mean I won't speculate other than say it's obviously it's in the seven figures because So a lot of money and it is one of the remarkable things about that story and so many others that there was a whole echelon of powerful person news just buying their way out of criminal accountability for a long time. Well I watched that loudest foists in the room which was incredibly well acted by Russell. Crowe just WANNA add. Did you watch that. It didn't watch it but I know Gretchen a little. Yeah I'm sure you know the particulars of of all these things. But they were paying out. You know tens of millions of dollars. I mean it really added up to huge amounts of money. Well that's where I think. The reporting is especially important because we need as many journalists as possible digging into cases of corporate culture normalizing that sort of thing and I think it's pretty widespread. I mean I've done now reporting on NBC on CBS. It wasn't just you know a single rogue studio like the Weinstein Company. Happy to your point Fox was in one of the examples. I hope that we're seeing the death of this idea that powerful guys figureheads of these companies are so indispensable danceable that it's worth concealing potentially criminal activity it just it never is. It's bad for the bottom line you know in the CBS story when word leaked that we were about to run at the New Yorker. Not even when the article itself hit like ten hours before when I think the Hollywood reporter put out a piece saying you know run fair is about to put out this. CBS reporting it'd been much root for months and sitting with my fact checker and we're of course just focused on the one thing we have to do getting the reporting rate and kind of trying to tune out the noise but meanwhile the news the cycle around this is starting and he turns his phone towards me and CBS's stock has just to plummet only last like a value on the one hand. And you hate to see that happen based on speculation I mean that's the actual facts investors on the other hand. I hope that's a lesson for companies everywhere. They thought they were doing the right thing for the bottom line covering this up. I mean this was a birthday knew that there was a criminal investigation homeboy. They knew knew that there were payouts and they kept him in power. Hope now people have internalized the lesson like actually. There's a cost to that. I imagine you gather all of of your information and your structuring and writing you do all these things in your fact checking and that has this whole. I would imagine excitement to it like you really onto something. You've really only got something and I wonder what the journey is from going like. Fuck I got this. This story is good. It's solid. I'm very proud of it. And then the panic the chatter sadder the legal threats the stock dropping. You now really are responsible for like a billion dollar movement. Do you lose your conviction fiction at all you go. Oh my God. If I've got this wrong now I am fuck fucked or you at that point or at your so solid on it or was that just you only get to that point. If you're so solid on it give you an example. I had a major political story that would have been the kind of thing that would take over the news cycle for a week or something thing and we had it flea drafted and multiple source. But I and my editors just decided at the eleventh hour not multiple multiple source enough. We wanted another voice in the room for dinner. Particular thing that had happened. And it's just never worth putting it out in unless Europe roof so so rock solid and as you pointed out all of these stories generate these crazy legal threats and attacks me personally and so you're there's really no temptation to put it out prematurely. I wish I could. You know credit myself for that. It's The New Yorker has absurdly high standard of fact checking things only really progressed to that point. If you know it's going to weather the storm so because that's a way that your bolstering some confidence is as you have the the vote of this institution the New Yorker. That's behind you could lead your own confidence a little bit. Well I think just to make it more specific for people. Because there's there's no reason anyone at home would necessarily know what that process looks like. It's not like you're doing secret. Research in avoid and then saying we feel feel confident. So we're going to put this out and see how people react. The fact checking process entails going to everyone. WHO's mentioned and saying okay? Here's what we are reporting. And here's the evidence and getting all their rebuttals so no one who's a subject of this kind of reporting is this kind of reporting meaning. Investigative reporting is shocked. And you kind of know what the responses are GonNa be and calibrating to those responses. It still can be a shit storm when when it comes out publicly and even you know you see people admitting to things in fact checking and then still being underhanded in the public discourse and Shar and yeah yeah I would imagine. You're getting a lot of opportunity to exercise your muscle of constructing a real argument for the other side which I think is one of the healthiest things people can do and seems to be one of the things. People are most reluctant to do which like give it a real real shock. What is that other point of view? Absolutely and then you know it's a a way in which I think. The legal training helps. Because that's very much embedded in legal thinking and yeah and sincerely you you know. My work involves burning crazy amount of my bridges all the time. But I do think that if you're GONNA be in the crosshairs of some kind of tough investigative reporting better to have it be an outlet like the New Yorker. That's really gonNA sincerely want to hear you out all the time I listened to someone during fact fact checking process and think. Okay actually I see that point or they presented this piece of evidence that persuasive and it changes the tenor of the thing I I've had. Sometimes I guess. Yes a provocative view of some of these situations. I am of the opinion. Not Certainly.

You know if there's a sign that there might be a wider pattern than you're aware of just don't say anything for a few minutes okay.

Let's I don't Know Louis C. K.. Okay but I do hear many many of his friends end up on stern or any of these places and they're now put in a position where they have to kind of publicly say they don't like this person who they do like and they love. Is there room for me to go. Look I love this person and I absolutely believe the accusers and I think this person has a problem and I also love them and and to be honest. We'll continue to be friends with them and hope I'm a part of some growth in solution like is that option on table in. Should it not be or should it be. Yeah it's really tough. I mean first of all. It's not really for me to say like I'm not you know the the high priestess of what people should say about people accused are unique position. That you really are the vanguard of the metoo movement so I would hope that people would consider your opinion on how we course correct to be relevant. Well I mean this is a bit of a sidebar but I actually I don't really agree with that characterization. I see how people could see that from aways away from it but from my perspective being in it. There's a really sharp distinction I mean I'm an investigative reporter report on all kinds of corruption and malfeasance is and to me it was actually philosophically very important that the stories. I've been fortunate enough to break about sexual. Violence weren't distinct from any other serious kind of story. I think that these kinds of claims had been almost ghettoized for years and years and described as something that was distinct from any other kind of criminal. Relegate Have Loyd tabloid not news impossible to bring out of the realm of he said she said and I just based on my legal training understood. That's not the case. It's in some cases it's he said she said. And in some cases it's actually backed by tangible Benjamin evidence whether it's an audio recording or video or a paper trail of settlements to conceal something or there's eye-witnesses leave a room and saw how distraught they were. There's all sorts of mechanisms. It was your take uniquely corporate corruption not just corporate but just systems water systems whereby learning about this. Hopefully we're not just learning about an individual we're learning about the the ways they get aided and abetted and how that is baked into our culture. Our corporate practices government practices. There's all sorts of legislative legislative Implications to the reporting that I've done on. NDA's for instance and a bunch of reporters have now done really good important work.

It's ten years of abuse before for we've met some of my You know in in really tough developing country orphanage type situations and I'm very inspired by them uh-huh and how they've overcome incredible challenges but it definitely makes for a childhood where you have a great sense of perspective and also. It's hard the times. Yeah it's on the surface it was privileged and and now I'm realizing oh I had it way better for my own personal selfish desires of having all all my mom's attention at all times well we've got our shit and you know I really focus on the privilege of the positive stuff because there's plenty of I. Is it likely that amid the chaos. I better be Goddamn Sears Tower of accomplishment to get noticed absolutely not actually I think the last half of of what you said is not right. I think I felt like I had to be a kind of click the the model child in the family not to stand out or get attention and and not set set an example but to just make life easier Wa. It was not one of those situations where like I didn't have an authority figure she. It was a great mom was always authority figure but I had a sense of empathy and understanding as I would with a friend where I realized like Oh this is is this is a lady who set out to do a really good thing and is shouldering an immense burden and I better be an easy one yet with a little bit part of it. What order are you in this therefore younger than me? Because you're middle middle ish but they're older but they came after he a some of them right. I think there's also you know there's a trainer remember the term in Gay Lit. There's like the best boy in the World Theorem mid that gay sons. If feel the need to overcompensate in some tremendous way that makes sense like you're going to let them down in your mindset at that age you're going to let them down eventually on this one part you're not gonNA get married and they're they're not GonNa go to your wedding so you'd better crush the other. It is yeah and also just that you know you're gonNA get teased or ostracized for something. So you're not going to be Alpha in these particular the traditional ways but you're going to be really dominant in these other. Yeah and find now as I'm in positions where I'm like hiring people for my team and stuff stuff. There are all sorts of great arguments for hiring in a diverse way whether it's people of color or people from various gender and Sexuality Quality Minorities but one of them is definitely that you get these incredible journeys where people kind of have to assert themselves early and find themselves early. They've overcome a bunch launch. Yeah it's not even that you're selecting for that you know checking that diversity box that they bring they've honed in on what they're I'm good at. I think early like people who are growing up as minorities feel like okay. Where's the lane one? Do I excel APP because I gotTa go Gung Ho at that because yeah there's all these other elements that Monica champion cheerleader. Just letting time I do have a bow in my Aso. You're trying to look even younger. 'CAUSE you're intimidated. Emma Ronin thirty one years stories. Nice to everyone has a different journey. That informs how they respond to. Hey can you tell this. Incredibly invasive personal account of something. That's going to Abend your life if you tell it publicly and put you at odds with all these powerful interests and wait for the catch and kill podcast. That I'm doing now. That's a book but it's also a podcast right so I wrote this book catch and kill. It's this series of stories that I broke about Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein and The various tools deployed by powerful people to suppress stories in the press manipulate news outlets and tabloids by stories for them to kill them. That's where the term no catch and kill comes from and it's also it's kind of. It's a memoir of very low point in my life where I was like physically deteriorating and not sleeping and I was on the run from literal spy is the Harvey Weinstein hired this Israeli private intelligence firm called black. Cuban they sent like a fem towel with false identities after my sources says and me and two Russian spies that hung out outside my apartment and chased me around and really quick so I have to imagine in those moments. It's both a scary intimidating at times and then other times were you like. I'm in a Goddamn James Bond movie. This is exciting. was there an excitement associated with it as well Not at the time in the midst of it because I was losing my job. scared shitless but in the aftermath writing the book. Definitely I had to make these decisions like okay priority. Number one is the reporting has to be airtight and incredibly respectful of the real life people who are affected by this so lots of fact checking lots of legal review but then also there was this process of. It's an incredibly dramatic story. That can be keun in terms of getting what I think is an important story to the widest audience. Possible so in terms of structure. Let's write it in a way. That is a page Turner and repulsive thankfully people have gotten that I haven't been eaten alive for making it dramatic and honestly at times fun like chartres it go through these incredibly credibly heavy stories you need to alternate with some levity and I'm proud without came out but now I'm doing this accompaniment podcast. The what's the catch and kill podcast straightforward name and. It's like if you finish book that you love the ideas. Then you get to spend a half hour forty five minutes with each of the characters and their little true crime documentaries about that character's life story so for the people who liked the plot of the book and want more there's new stuff and and in some cases it's people who didn't speak for the book but figured in the plot we did this episode with this wonderful woman who was an assistant to Harvey Weinstein in the ninety s named Ruina Choo who I had talked to around the initial Weinstein Story. I did in two thousand seventeen and she wasn't ready to talk Her name didn't come out at all And it's been this long journey that she talks about why she didn't speak and a lot of it is circumstantial and we'll be true for anyone you know. It's the career repercussions it's having A. Tell your spouse having tell your parents but to our point we were talking about earlier if you bring your own story to that decision I mean. She talks a lot about being Chinese British. And those two cultural forces sort of stiff upper lip thing of the English And also the kind of what she describes describes the model minority pressure of being Chinese drought. Both of them making it extra hard for her to speak. Yeah which is estimated by when I was reading about Catching kill I was. I was wondering what what what would be your most generous reasoning for why people protect act people. They admire who they love their alike. There's loyalty there's some kind of evolutionary wiring in in there to really nor the truth. I think many of us really vulnerable to that it in terms of protecting bad guys. Yeah Yeah on occasion. Yeah it's well I think we're built as a species to former judgments based on the limited data points we have and so you know. Ah I could name any number of names here but pick your favorite person comes out and says but I loved working with Roman Polanski or Woody Allen Bill Cosby and it's like of course you love of course he's going to be great to you famous person on especially famous guy on set. You're not an underage girl or you know a model old Has just been drugged or scenario and You know I am not perfect in that respect either but I try in cases where there's someone someone that I like and even care about feel loyal to coups credibly accused of this sort of thing to step outside of my own experience of that person and acknowledge that there is another universe that I don't get to see Firsthand Shar an and I think it's just about respecting the unknown as well like a great example. Simple of what you're talking about is I broke these stories about. CBS less moon values and a chain of executives under him including in the news division. And you know. Many many dozens of people talking about how culture of harassment kind of gets baked into company is practices corporate cultures. A real thing and and it can turn bad in these ways S. right and it's all these different factors from the legal department to a board. That's saying these crazy mustache twirling villainous things in the board minute meetings. They're saying like I don't care if it's dozens of women accusing him of rape Right right literally. That was very close. Estrin came on board. I remember in the wake of I did two stories back to back about Moon Vez and in the wake of the first one which had six women accusing him of assault and harassment And they were very serious stories. Was People like Ileana. Douglas Wonderful actress saying you know he jumped on top me helped me down in this business meeting and not super cool professional conduct on right right right and yet there was even after those first six came forward a real contingent of CBS talent but also in the wider Hollywood community people who race to his defense and there were people who came out and said you know. That's not the last that I know. Sure and of course that was true for them. I'm sure right but it's it's like never entered into their calculus what I knew already at that point. which is there's another six coming with them? Even more extreme dream violent claims yeah backed by a lot of evidence.

"The Harvey store you know just for people listening you know I just you have a personal connection to me. Maybe so let me just tell you the story just so you get an idea of the way this guy I operated and I didn't put this together until way later But I do the roast. I have so many jokes about Harvey Weinstein that are just brutal again. It was people laughed at it. I I mean I did. Jokes like Harvey slept so many actresses. He doesn't have the clap. He has the applause. I mean I was doing jokes like that. Of course none of us knew that these were rapes. Very important You know I stood a joke. It was like Harvey's slept so many actresses backstage West took out ad space on his taint. I remember hearing you make that choice. That was a joke that just made and everybody laughed. You know and you know with girlfriends we would literally sit around and you know a friend of mine was doing a harvey movie and we go. Bring Your kneepads ads like. That's how resigned. Everyone was too. That's how ubiquitous. This was So I do the roast that night we go to dinner. It's like me and Quentin and whatever everyone in Harvey's there I don't really remember talking to him but we were kind of sitting near each other. All I remember is that he made the table laugh so hard he was telling these big stories and cracking everybody up and it was just like so charismatic. So engaging funny smart of obviously vicious quick remembered everybody's names you know he's like Whitney. How's your Sushi like he was just really really quick? Incredible brame name and then the next day I get a call for an audition for Harvey Weinstein movie and this is a movie that I don't I I don't know if it ever existed I call for Harvey Weinstein Movie. I'm like I don't I don't have the CY decides will be there when you get there. which is very abnormal? It's very unusual. Normally fleet side sent you before but this is like I'm twenty four years old. I don't know what's going on in my arm and movie. Everyone is very stressed out. That's calling me about it. Whenever Harvey was is involved in anything people were doing? You know we gotta get to this ruining and I'm like what can I do tomorrow. And then you gotta go today and everyone's like I've never seen agents or anyone behaved like this before so I go to this place. I'm really nervous because it's I usually get to prepare before. In addition I walk into this in. Look this may be me being paranoid but I have cast things sent so I now know how casting is supposed to work. I now know the casting offices have like furniture and desks and people and sharers. I I walked into this office. I just remember going. Oh they must have just moved in but it was a totally empty room with no chairs. There wasn't a tripod and a camera set Most audition rooms have like lights. There's a piece of blue paper in the background Normally the actor gets miked. It's there's other actors in the waiting room I shop. It's just me and the casting directors like I had never met before is kind of frazzled and like forcing me to like. Read this thing and it's just filming me with a camera in her hand like I've never had an audition and before that or since and I look back and I don't know if it was a real audition or not I don't know but I went in and then later they're like all the movies probably will be not happening or they haven't gotten the sides it was something about a babysitter disturbance do paragraphs sexually. There's no no it was yeah it was a monologue of yeah. You just gave me a book to read more read worn peas. No I don't I don't remember because it was a movie that never came out and they're like oh it lost lost financing because that was the time where it was like. I wanted a job so I mean that did happen. A Lot Obviously a general but especially happened a lot around harvey in in those days. I I didn't put it together. No joke till your article came out and I was like. That probably wasn't even a real audition cause and then I did the math on it. But I don't I don't know for sure and then then the next day I wanNA say to. Maybe it was like two days later. I'm at the comedy store and performing comedy store. I go on stage and I remember the set being weird because I was wearing like sneaker wedges is and I like fell a little bit so I ended up just sort of joking around with audience the whole time I left I get a call ten minutes later from the manager of the comedy store who is no longer the manager the comedy let me start to no one's getting in trouble here currently and he was get back here Harvey Weinstein came to see you and I've known this man for ten years he was shrieking I mean this Harvey Weinstein is a man that terrified men that needed nothing from him I mean this was a gritty Brusque Comedy Club owner who had seen so you know who carries drunk people out of comedy clubs that are trying to fight them you know and he's going to get back you're right screaming at me and just picturing harvey sitting there you know having come to see me wanting to get me back I didn't go back because no joke. I was too insecure because I wasn't wearing makeup and I was like I can't let Harvey Weinstein without makeup like my vanity. Probably saved me but this just for people listening like this is a man that like hunted. People hunted people. A lot of sources used that word you know. This wasn't like A. Oh we were kind of flirting and then we both had different ideas of what happened afterwards. This is a man that went after women bang down their doors. Women are putting furniture in in front of their doors. This is a this is darth vader this is a cartoon villain it and it's such a crazy experience as a reporter to have multiple women independently described cities. You released similar. Things women have never spoken to each other We'll touch US tell the identical story and then I pushed the furniture in front of the doors. You know I know it sounds crazy as it was like in a movie but I was so scared and end the traits. You're talking about all inform each other there have peace. He was a bully. It is ultimately a story worry about the abuse of power and the fact that when we are afraid to question people at the top of whatever industry sometimes people get hurt as a result. Because because that's what unchecked power do. Yeah and you know it's just so fascinating to be in a business that makes its money from making movies about taking down villains and no one could figure out how to do it when it was happening in real life. It's like a bunch of writers and producers that are all like making movies about how to take down and I'm like just deuce th what would your character in the script you just wrote. Do about this guy. We don't even know how to write those movies. All the movies end with giant column of light now shred I wanNA people flying around in a column of Light. I mean this is a man who what was the IMF did he steal six hundred thousand dollars from AIDS so so there was this controversy on the board of Amfar is you know where funds were allegedly being redirected from the charity ready to The production of finding Neverland's Yeah Rodway version of finding Neverland. He was doing and I think his explanation was that it was designed to be joint fundraising but it was certainly it was regarded as shady. Yeah within this board and now as he's working overtime to suppress these allegations of sexual abuse against and he's also trying to get the end for far board to sign these crazy nondisclosure agreements and to kind of pay them out to get rid the problem. Yeah and eventually the House of cards does start to topple. It's so important How many things that this debunks like? And how many things that came up that that enraged me and I'm obsessed with the things people say in order to kind of get around having to confront sexual harassment and I know it's a big thing and sometimes we have to disassociate or sometimes we have to kind of you know I was talking to someone about One of these and they're like God come on. That was twenty years ago. And it's so wild I mean people say that something like listen to your basically like a lick that we. We weren't denial twenty years ago. Now we have to be in denial again. This is exhausting. Like think about what you're uh-huh there's this conversation now about how we should feel about time when it comes to serious crimes and there's all these jurisdictions saying you know what we're going to get rid of the statute of limitations when it comes to sexual assault and I think that's a pretty healthy competition and I think when you say this happened twenty years ago all I think is think of all all the people it's happened to since. Listen to what you're saying. And that is such a big part of the motivation. So many of the people who ultimately spoke this the realization Asian that whether it was just of their own volition staying quiet because they were justifiably frightened of the repercussions for them or they signed some kind of a crazy nondisclosure closure agreement it took a payout. I think for those people realizing that others were getting hurt. While they grappled with the weight of silence changed everything and now that it's been a couple years since the first New Yorker article came out. Now there's no you cannot hold onto that logic anymore. There's no one who has come forward whose life has is magically gotten amazingly better like they are really martyrs and doing this for the next generation of women to protect others that you don't come out and then all all of a sudden you get to start marvel movies. I think both things are true. It's been hard for a number of these women particularly in Hollywood who spoke in these stories and a lot of them still talk about not getting any work. They haven't gotten a single auditions since the story. I hear those kinds of accounts after the fact. But there's also also definitely a contingent that's doing great and I think that's important to note as well because the fears loomed so large and I have loved as the reporter in that equation. quesion having people come back and say you know what I feel a huge weight lifted and look. It's complicated for all of them but a lot of them have said it's better now and some of them even you know their careers have been fine or better than they've felt less paralyzed by this. They're able to work more. I think it's that I think it's just sort of the weight off their shoulders in this sort of healing moment. It's not like you know for people that think that this would be some kind of a career move or some kind of mercenaries certainly not that for attention attention if you know the women that are thriving because it is because they're healing and because they're moving past something and because the sort of evil powers that were you know smearing them are now thon on. Yeah Yup and look in those cases which I wish were more common where Someone feels like they're career has been in a good place since they did. An incredibly brave thing became a source in a contentious story I wish every industry would do more of that You know there are a couple of cases like an agent. I used to work with I'm usually get credit for this Bryan Lourd and his folks at ca called Annabella. She or a right after she did this incredibly ably difficult thing of coming forward with a very very violent. It's really important for you. Know this is someone who's when you first called said no thank you not interested. Oh Yeah and did you. What did you feel when she said that she was apologizing for not being able to help in a way that made you think that made me think that there was more there and also lead heard from so many people that she had told this story consistently over the years but ultimately when someone is completely shut down like that? There's there's nothing you can do but give them space and thank God. She then reconsidered later and and her story I think has really inspired a lot of people. It's it's particularly clearly brutal. An awful one and anyone who reads it or here's Will understand why she was reluctant to speak. At first heartbreaking embarrassing embarrassing. That's that that I think a lot of people don't understand that that it's no one's dream to go out in the world and have everybody knows something that intimate about you. What she did is is terrific? She now has to walk down the street and everybody knows this awful thing happened to her and she talked about that she went into. The decision is open. And you know I think thinks she's one of the people where the degree of trauma she went through is so severe that there are good days and bad days and none of it is easy even ongoing accents. And so it's been a wonderful thing that You know career wise. It's not easy either. And she supporting her kids but You know she did get new representation afterwards. Yeah and people in. The industry rallied around her a little bit and she's been working again at which which is also great as a consumer of movies because she's wonderful accurately. I love seeing had it also was after sexually assaulting was telling everyone she was difficult. Yeah you know. He put people in an impossible situation. He would Assault them then they tell everyone they were difficult and then make it so it was impossible to get any kind of legal action and then were forced to signing as that made them always have to look over their shoulder and be paranoid annoyed completely and I really hope that pulling back the curtain on that and understanding that that was a real thing that was happening the blacklisting and the smearing uh opens doors for a long time. I know it sounds like a movie you know. It sounds like a movie but these things were actually happening. Well and when you talk to smart people who went through it of course the first thing they say I know I'll never be able to prove this. I Remember Mira Sorvino..

"This is all before any of this has published of course of course and at the time they were saying things like well. We're worried about tortuous interference. which is legal doctrine That refers to interfering with someone's contracts and it was really typically A. Ah something that comes into play. When you're you know a business competitor of someone and you're trying to get their employees to to break their contracts to benefit you enter the person's business It does not typically come into play in the context of legal judgments against American news outlets who are in good faith pursuing a story the and talking to sources who happen to have nondisclosure agreements because they've settled with Harvey Weinstein for instance to conceal sexual assault allegations. So this was a a case where I lay out at least fifteen secret calls that previously. NBC News at denied now they acknowledge between senior executives there Harvey Weinstein. He and his lawyers are making this argument there. Then repeating this argument to me and my producer. Eventually I mean despite you you felt like you had the sources to go with the story but would've eventually you decide to go with the New Yorker Why did you do that? The executives of NBC News told us to take the story elsewhere. And what was your reaction when they told you that Sh- absolute shock and independent. When I say us they independently told this to me and to my producer You know wouldn't it be a great vanity affair piece. Wouldn't it be a great New York magazine piece. If you want to take it somewhere else go with God and it was still frightening and uncertain because I think everyone on every side of this realized it would be a scandal handle wants. The story came out somewhere else while I was working at. NBC News You know I was on. NBC's Eras NBC News. Investigative correspondent Ronan Farrow two days before the First Harvey Weinstein in New Yorker Story broke and people did find it strange and it was very rapidly scandal but even after taking out of the door you know there was a period of weeks where I had. No Oh news organization The New Yorker hadn't yet said Yes to it. I was paying out of pocket to continue to do interviews myself and thank God. The sources were so brave and hung in there with me through these he's ups and downs and jerking them around so really all credit to them but This was a situation where the story was sent out into the cold. And it's only thanks to those sources his and to the brave journalists at the New Yorker who rescued it that we're having this conversation now. It costs such a huge sensation as possibly something that you couldn't predicted at that time. I wonder when you look at at how. NBC reacted in the days. After you published your story What did you think of their public explanation? Nation of why they didn't air it well. The reaction is fascinating to watch and in many ways mirrors. I've now done reporting of this kinds on a number of institutions am I obviously. Is You know. The publisher of the National Inquirer is a major focus of the book And you see some of the same deceptive tactics to you know I reveal in this book and this is something. NBC News is confirmed and they hired a wikipedia white washer after the story came out to remove references to the Weinstein and lower scandals from the pages of all of these NBC executives is and to this day. wikipedia is largely stripped clean of any references to the scandal And you see this fascinating pushing poll playing out in those edit edit pages on wikipedia where real editors who are just crowdsourced are saying there's corporate spin being done to these pages. Were losing the truth. It's slipping away. This is so agree grevious but you have a paid Operation to strip that information out and ultimately prevails to be clear eventually You did learn that one of the reasons. NBC Didn't go with your story had to do with with today. Show host Matt Lauer. What happened there? Well multiple sources in the book both at the national enquirer error and At NBC talk about a threat being delivered What is and and we also have? NBC's denial of that in there That senior leadership Ship knew that there was a threat to expose more of the lower information. But we do know as alluded to before is that the inquirer was already exposing more and more about Matt Lauer was intensely. Tensely focused about Matt Lauer had pulled a file of killed stories on Matt Lauer in this timeframe And more than that that. This was a company as it was arguing that its it's journalists should not report on secret sexual harassment settlements was enforcing and brokering its own identical settlements. And you know the the book okay hopefully is not just a cautionary tale about NBC News. But a cautionary tale about what happens in our profession when we are not transparent and accountable and and when we sweep serious newsworthy problems under the rug. In your book you talk about the former employees Who of NBC? Who alleged that that Matt Lauer raped her well? They weren't covering the twenty. Fourteen Sochi Olympics Matt Lauer has told variety That any acts with that woman were completely consensual. What do you think of his denial? That he forced her to have sex with him. This book is very meticulously fact. Checked and every denial. Denial is in their loud and clear. And you know I will let readers decide for themselves All I can say is that the facts are very carefully interrogated. Gated laid out there. And you know she think some persuasively Says look whatever happened before and after that night whether he thought it was flirting with him how offer he interpreted my texts where I was a junior employee. Bread for my job is the narrative she gives and you know I tried to sound as enthusiastic as possible when he wanted subsequent sexual contact. You know she says regardless of all of that. The incident in question involved her being too drunk to consent and then saying no repeatedly Louis to a sex act that he proceeds with and you know his thinking is represented very fully in the book. And you can decide if you Feel that she is correct in that assessment assessment with lower was dismissed But but NBC. News president no OPPENHEIM has called you a a disgruntled employee says the reason you're you're spreading conspiracy theories stories about why the Weinstein story was killed was because you have an ax to grind. What he say to that every story that I report against powerful interests or organizations I get this same kind of rhetoric thrown at me and that's true basically every investigative reporter who works on a tough story corey and one of the things that we've seen in recent weeks Is You know people like Chris Hayes. inside the NBC ecosystem holding their bosses says accountable unanimity. As far as I've seen in the outpouring of support from journalists they're saying this accords with our knowledge of what's happening here and we need to do more or to hold ourselves accountable The book is very much a tribute to great journalists across the board and specifically journalists NBC. News who are now demanding answers answers and so you know. I think that the response to that is very clear. In the way in which our community of fellow journalists have rallied around this book. Your your book reads like a thriller and it paints this this picture of a large network of of media business. Entertainment men men in those industries. Who who are working together to to keep Keep stories undercover. I wonder you know In in many ways the story than the picture that you paint a firms some pretty long held conspiracy theories about the media Does does that worry you at all you know at a time. When authoritarian rhetoric gets weaponized against the President United States people like Donald Trump? You know I've tried to call the press the enemy of the people. I think it's very difficult to come to the end of this book. With any opinion other than admiration for the many reporters who continue in the face of that to operate at the highest standard of truth telling and to not acquiesce to pressure from powerful interests. You A- as much as this is a book about the ways in which the media can letdown. Brave sources It is also a book about the vital importance of the work. The media does is and the need to hold ourselves to that high standard. It's also a book about about Ronan. Farrow who went through an incredible amount of stress is to pursue a story. You were lonely at times. You were isolated. You were targeted for surveillance. You say you you lost your job at NBC. So yeah you WanNa Pulitzer But but in your mind was the story worth it. Every time a source comes to me with a new piece of information that reveals not just stories about sexual violence in any kind of misconduct or malfeasance. I am so grateful as I am to the women who made it possible to tell the Weinstein Story and there is no question in my mind that I would do it all again and that it was the least east that I could have and should have done and I try to be forthright. You know when I talk about those difficult moments About you know it being a moment where I was really tired tired and stressed but also the tip of the iceberg in terms of how bad it could have gotten for sources and for other journalists. And you know just one in part of this massive machine and how it affects lots of lives. I try to tell it in a way where it is Not so much as me. But revealing about the larger patterns patterns of obstacles people go up against so so the answer is absolutely not. I've never had a moment where I felt that it wasn't worth telling these stories. Ronan Farrow. Thank you for telling your story today with us. Thank you so much for your time. Ronan Farrow spoke with Duncan mccue. In October he is a contributing writer.

We have no secrets and nothing to hide. There is no evidence of any reports of Matt Lauer's misconduct before his firing no settlements. No hush money no way we. We have found that.

"It's it's especially exciting to be hosting Ronan Farrow and Megan twohey writing in the New York Times been two years since they publish their separate exposes of sexual assault and harassment allegations against movie Sir Harry Weinstein those stories encouraged many other women around the world to come forward with allegations against other powerful privilege and previously protected men and help give rise to them metoo movement in both the New Yorker and the Times subsequently shared last year's Pulitzer Prize for Public Service which honored the award honored the courageous breakthrough reporting of Ronin Jodie and Megan Catching kill ronin recounts his part in breaking the Weinstein story and tells the institutional resistance attempted a temptation and the threats he faced in in doing so other book which contains additional revelations it's not just the work of investigative journalism but I is itself a compelling and it's instructive Spice Story Ronin writes about not only the extreme tactics taken by Weinstein what Ronin calls a full on espionage operation to stymie the coverage but also described actions by executives at NBC News where Ronin initially pursued the story to keep it from being broadcast. I'm not giving away any spoilers because assists has been widely reported since the books released but Ronin speculates that NBC's behavior was motivated by a desire to protect news anchor Matt Lauer who has Ralph was subsequently accused of sexual misconduct and let go and the interest of fairness let me say NBC strongly denies that it sought to block Ronan and an investigation or tried to cover up hours misconduct and lower maintains that his actions were consensual up at Ronin stands by his account and if nothing else the controversy is certainly helped stir interest in his very revealing and very riveting book Ronin of course as accustomed to public attention having lived a sort of boy wonder existence the son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen he started college at age eleven graduated at fifteen admitted to oskoui delayed entry to work as a UNICEF spokesman for youth and after graduating from law school at age twenty one he joined the State Department to work for Richard Holbrooke focusing on NGOs that Afghanistan Pakistan and later became secretary of State who worked with Special Advisor for Global Youth Issues in two thousand twelve off to Hartford on a Rhodes scholarship in two thousand fourteen.
