"On the program today, we hear from the UK's ambassador to Ukraine, who's now in Poland and the value of kinship care. We hear one woman's story of taking in her sister's three young children. The actor Ruth Wilson on her latest work and shares her views on egg freezing and why marriage isn't for her. With Bridgerton returning to our screens, one historian laments, why there is no body hair in period drama. For most of history in most times and in most places, ordinary women would have had underarm hair and leg hair. I really think that period appropriate body hair wouldn't really turn people off. I don't think we give viewers enough credit. And I think most people would say, oh, you know, I never thought of that. I suppose women would have removed their underarm hair. And the big question single or double duvets when sleeping with your partner. This week, nazanin zaghari Radcliffe faced a room full of journalists and cameras. She knew what she wanted to say and what she didn't want to say after 6 years away from home. She didn't want to talk about her experience in prison, her guards, or what solitary confinement was like. But she did give her opinion about the way 5 foreign secretaries dealt with her situation. The journey back home was tough. I grant what Richard said to thank the foreign secretary. I do not really agree with him on that level. And I'm going to tell you that because I have seen 5 foreign secretaries changed over the course of 6 years. That is unprecedented given the politics of the UK. I love you Richard, respect whatever you believe. But I was told many, many times, oh, we're going to get you home. That never happened. So there was a time that I felt like, do you know what? I'm like, no, I'm not even going to trust you, because I've been told many many times that I'm going to be taken home, but that never happened..

"To tell you what I was mentioning earlier with the actor Ruth Wilson about the concern from one historian around why there is no body hair in period dramas. This is a question posed by the historian doctor Marissa C road she's a postdoctoral fellow at Arizona state university also co host of a podcast called dick, which looks at the past through a feminist lens and I'm very mindful of this because we've got Bridgerton returning to our screens tomorrow. Good morning, Marissa. Good morning Emma. Where's the body hair? I don't know. I'm not sure. You know, and after tweeting that, now I know that it's not only me that have that question on my mind. I tweeted, you know, where's the body hair? And a bunch of people said, I've always wondered that, you know, so it wasn't just me. It's not just historians. It's also, I think, ordinary folks too, who are thinking, wait a minute, wouldn't these women have leg hair and armpit hair? That Judy messaged in, say, hair has been removed since Egyptian times, various chemicals and tweezers she puts it. Read the Marquis de Sade. Yeah, no, that's totally true. Hair has been removed, especially for ritualistic purposes, and as well for aesthetic reasons. Usually by particularly fancy people, upper class people, but for most of history in most times and in most places, ordinary people would have had underarm hair and leg hair ordinary women would have had underarm hair and leg hair. In most times and places. Yes, and I think that's what you're getting to here, isn't it? That we spend a lot of time or rather the people making these programs spend a lot of time on the accuracy of lots of different things. They are called out, aren't they? If there's, I don't know, a random remote control in the background or something. But why? Reddit goes wild. But why not this? Why do you think it matters though?.

"Unique needs and we want to work with the government and with local authorities to really make sure that we build a system that meets the unique needs and challenges of the families that are stepped into race. Well, indeed, I don't think many people will know a lot about kinship coming at all. If they know anything. And I've certainly learned a great deal since knowing that we were going to be talking and hearing about your recommendations. Mary, and good morning, welcome to the program. Morning. I mentioned your circumstances and what happened. And is it like you had a call on a Friday saying, if you don't want your sister's children to get split up and go into care, then you can act now, but you have to act now. Yeah, so I was at work on Friday evening, got a call around 4 p.m. and the local authority and my sister rang me and said, Mary, the children are potentially going to go into the care system. There's caught on Monday. If you want to come and save the children from going into the care system, please come to court on Monday. It was an overnight decision and I was meant to be going work on Monday. I had a holiday booked in two weeks. So much change in such short amount of time. It was just crazy. And you have your own children as well. Yeah, I was a mom for two kids teenage children. So within a couple of days I had become a parent to 5 children, and they were younger, your sister's children were like, I had three under 5 and two in nappies. It was tremendous like our shopping had gone double in price and there was no financial support and I wasn't getting the money from work anymore because I had to take leave. I was entitled to benefits. I was just using my savings. And you then in the same home as well, and I understand that that was a challenge in terms of sleeping arrangements. I slept with my niece on the sofa for around 6 months before we could get a triple bunk for them..

"Well, it's lovely to have you to have someone to talk to this morning, even if it is me. Ruth Wilson and you have to say, we'll leave you to go back to those thoughts and get back into that box quite literally. But thank you for talking to us this morning. Thanks for having me. Ruth Wilson there, the human voice is at the Harold Pinter theater in London until April 9th and true things is in cinemas from April 1st. Right at the start of the program I was talking to the first female admiral in the Royal Navy's history, I have to say, many of you also getting in touch about that interview. Fascinating to see a bit of a theme emerging that people women getting in touch, I should say, I've been there's also men have been getting in touch, but women who've been getting in touch said you've tried to join the navy and one person saying here, Alex and presuming a woman saying I can cope with the lavishness, hard work, what put me off was the shocking admin involved in the application process. If it had been better managed, it's likely I'd be part of the Royal Navy. Now I trained with the reserves. I loved every second. Sadly, my career as a teacher has taken over and now I have no involvement. And another one here, which is anonymous, saying I agree the armed forces is a great career for young women, but they really need to address the recruitment processes. This is somebody whose daughters have some issues on that front. I'll return to that message if I can, but along a similar line. But I also really wanted to read this from Meghan just listening to your interview with rear admiral Terry. I also joined the Royal Navy in 97, but didn't stay through the initial officer training. I'd like to congratulate her for blazing a trail through the Royal Navy to show what women can achieve. I can vouch that back in 97 I really didn't feel welcome and there were a lot of people who were very vocal that women should not be in ships. So there you go. More messages coming in, I hope to return to them. But we were just talking about children there, the different options available. Well, what is the best way of looking after children who can no longer stay with their birth parents when a family for whatever reason breaks down. The independent review of children's social care which was commissioned by the government is due to make its recommendations about the future of the care system in England in the next couple of months..

"You're right, I can't comment from a government perspective. Because there is an incredible, I should say incredible culture of women fighting. Volunteering and fighting. But this idea that men couldn't leave and women could. I just wonder what your reaction had been, sort of as a woman to that in your role. So I think as a woman and as someone who is aiming to attract my armed force to upwards of more than I am now, I would say that your best fighting force is one that is diverse and inclusive. The conscription element will always bring a political edge to it that perhaps people are not comfortable with, but I do know there are other countries who have taken that on so Sweden I know recently has looked at conscription more largely. So I think it is on the one hand you say you want an inclusive force where everybody is able to contribute if they can. But I absolutely understand the political difficulty with that. And so I think it should be about allowing people who want to to get involved. Rear admiral G Terry, thank you very much for talking to us all the best with it. I hope you'll come back and tell us how it's going a lot to do, it sounds. There's quite a lot to do, but thanks very much for having me on. There you go. The first woman to be an admiral in the Royal Navy's history. You're getting in touch with regards to how women have helped you or perhaps some of those special places in hell as well with that famous quote from Madeleine all right, who we learned has died, but we're remembering today you'll hear the voice of shortly from some of our archive and interviews. A message here is about, in my working life, it is only women who have helped me and I want to pay tribute. Another message here, though, saying it's only women who have hindered me or tried to make me feel small. That's from Catherine. And what makes you think they're capable of doing that was one sneering remark..

"That's the next step to allow people to make life choices and manage their career. And of course, it also affects men who are serving who have caring duties as well. Do you think enough has been done in that? So I think in the 25 years I've been in a lot has changed and we've got a lot better. I think in the last ten months, since the Atherton report, we have accelerated a lot through what we've done in terms of and in terms of the wigston report, those types of things. These are some of the reviews our listeners may remember, the Atherton refers to to Sarah to the MP, who has been looking at this in a parliament in a parliamentary broad perspective. But also we've got things like the wraparound child care, which we've bought in. We've bought in a different accommodation model, the future accommodation model which helps people live where they want to live where their support structure is rather than making people move. Have we done enough? No. Is there more to do very definitely, but we are definitely on the right path and we are accelerating those that we can see that have a benefit. So we're using a feedback system which says, does this work for you? Do the pilots work? How do we change and test and adjust that? It's also about culture though, isn't it? And when I was looking through that review that you mentioned, some of the things that came up in that also don't make for easy reading. And I know this is the army, but the head of the army, so general Nick Carter talked about a laddish culture being important in the forces necessary for winning on the battlefield. He later said those words were a mistake, but you talk about what the little people know about the armed forces. Then you want to get more women in and then you hear we need a lavish culture to kill and win, and I'm very minded that we're talking while we have a war in Ukraine. Yes, so there is a definite culture change. And again, in my 25 years, the culture was hugely changed about all sorts of things from healthy living to how people are seen as being good at delivering their job, not necessarily any of their other attributes. What I'm keen on focusing on is intersectionality, which is a great word I learned in America about we are a sum of all our parts and so we need to understand that that is the importance and you need to be comfortable enough to bring as much of little of yourself to work as you want to. So in the navy, you need to be able to deploy and to deliver on operations. Is that?.

Ruth Wilson quit The Affair because she 'didn't feel safe'

"To talk about Dominic West. But by way of Ruth Wilson and I know you're saying to yourself self. Who are these people? These people? So Ruth Wilson, you were may remember from Showtime's the affair. Now I guess back and I did not watch the show. I have not watched the show. I apologize. But apparently back in 2018. Her character was randomly spoiler alert. She left the show. I'll just put it that way. And apparently, there were some rumors that she left the show at the time. Due to some pay disparity between her and Dominic West. She eventually told The New York Times that that was not true, but she otherwise quote and I'm quoting Perez Hilton now kept mum on the subject. Except to say, quote. There is a much bigger story. Well, apparently this week she's talking more about that story. She didn't interview with stylist Is that like a magazine about stylist? Probably. I mean, you hope, a fashion magazine for sure, she said, Quote. The reason I haven't gone into the affair meaning like what happened there. Is that I haven't worked out how to discuss it. There's a lot of noise and anger surrounding it. And really, the power rests with me to choose how I discuss my life, and my experience is what's important to say is that I did speak up. I did have a voice. I did stand up for myself. There was a situation on the affair where things didn't feel right. And I dealt with them and I managed to protect myself. Well, that That's kind of a shocking statement. Yeah, and this goes back to a story that made headlines at the end of last year, where there were accusations that the show run around the affair. Was running a hostile work environment. Didn't did this person leave or there was some sort of all happened at the time because I vaguely remember. Well, the parent when Ruth Wilson left, it was shocking and one of the things um the reasons why she left is because there were issues with nudity on the set. They're issues. I believe, with some of the sex scenes that were happening at at the lead of the show Runner and one of the show's executive producer, So it was just it was just a gross situation for Ruth Wilson, allegedly and since he left so when she In this most recent interview when she talked about it again. She didn't give a ton of specifics. But again, she does say that she, you know, spoke up at the time and that she defended herself and that she dealt with it or that the issue was dealt with. According to Let's see, Um I don't know if this from the same interview quote it was before me, too. It was before Harvey Weinstein. And yet my instincts were very clear and strong about what I felt was wrong. What was going on What I didn't feel safe about And that refers. I'm assuming to the piece you just ah, red or shared about the nudity that there was a lot of nudity requested of the actresses in a way that did not make her feel comfortable right and saying that there was a much bigger story on the set of the affair, the Hollywood reporter did it. A feature on Ruth Wilson last year and so just to put it into context, a little bit of a timeline she left in 2018. Ruth Wilson left the affair in 28 team, and she was saying that she brought up these issues, you know, like you, said Bradley before me, to which I would say the fall of 2017 is when that really kicked off with the Harvey Weinstein story. Being published in The New Yorker in The New York Times. Allegedly there was an unreported 2017 investigation by Showtime's parent company, CBS into Ruth Wilson's accusations about what was happening on the affair. And that she is restrained by a non disclosure agreement, which is why she's kind of talking around this issue. What I did find interesting is I think this comes also from that 2019 Hollywood reporter piece. In one surprising twist of the tale, the show's executive producer and director, Jeffrey Reiner, was said to have asked Lena Dunham and a dinner party. To persuade Wilson to quote Show her bleeps or at least show some bleep. Yeah. Or bleeps being the upper experience and her bleep being the lower experience meaning like, Can you just get her to show some bleeps? Which this is why I'm so glad that we had the meet to movement. Sure, women everywhere, like Yeah, thanks for showing up bread, But we've talked about this at length It sound like I'm just arriving at this, but To just think about the reality of what women had to deal with, and probably still do to a certain extent, you know, although I would hope post me too less. In Ah, smaller capacity. Just the like. Overt use of their sexuality or bodies in a way that, like other people wouldn't give a second thought to but are now having to question like. Is this a good use of nudity? Is this something we would request of our male co stars? Where it just seemed like women's bodies were. It's just a given. That at some point you should show your breasts or be naked in a you know a scene If you're doing a dramatic role, for example, writer at the very least, the probability if you're female body, somebody who's going to ask you to get nude whether or not you do. It is a whole other thing. But the proposition of having to do that, in order to fulfill some dramatic obligation is just like the probability is high. Wass. What I also think is interesting is here we have again a person connected to Dominic West. And, Ah, this is a story that I feel like we're going to continue to hear about not necessarily The story of Ruth Wilson. But the story of Dominic West And maybe not specifically as as concerns the affair but thie actual affair that Dominic West had with Lily James. And you've got to believe that Lily James was not the first woman that Dominic West had an affair with

The Case for Police Abolition

"At. The time of this recording one thousand seventeen people in the US have been shot and killed by police this past year, and as the numbers continue to grow. It's got meany questioning why we're even need cops in the first place, but the question of polishing the police also makes a lot of people nervous so today we're going straight to the source in talking to an actual abolitionist. Bill Fina Y'all on. It's an important conversation that you don't want to miss. This is the nod. We've heard it all before. Give Cops Body Cams hold them accountable, cautious need diversity and bias training. We need community policing black police. We need Brown police, but as the years roll by an efforts at reform are showing no signs of stopping the brutal violence against black people in this country, a different call gaining traction is the call to abolish the prison industrial complex, which is made up of prisons, policing and surveillance all forms contrary to what a lot of. Of people believe this isn't a new school. Of Thought, it's been around since the eighties, and it's been embraced by people all over the world. Much of what we know about it. Today has been studied practice and built upon three black women. We have to mention Angela Davis Ruth Wilson, Gilmore and Mariam Kaba Today. We're joined by bill. Fina Y'all want a Baltimore based restorative justice practitioner. Who writes about abolition and how to practice it in our community? It'll pheno. Thank, you so much for being here today. It's awesome. Have you thank you? Thank you for having me so abolition. Is Abolition essentially what we talk about admission we're saying is that a world cannot just without the physical presence of police in prisons, but a world where we all have, our needs met in a way that we do not have to commit the crimes that laid us in prison, and with policing right, and so abolition forces us to complete your frame how we think about the concept of prisons and lease, and to be honest about the history of it prisons. Prisons were created as an alternative to slavery. It says so and the thirteen th amendment, and so when we look if that that violence and genocide history of policing prisons, abolition says it's not possible for us to have world rabies dynamics exist so I'm sure we've all seen a lot of the back and forth in the media, and even just an online conversations about what's reformist versus what is abolitionist. What sorts of things are absolutely out of the question or Believed that we can have rover prisons and policing exist. We just have to make it better. And abolitionist believed that is not possible behalf to completely get rid of it and create new systems and structures. How did you come to fruition? Personally had become part of your life identified. The woman is came to woman is during college was definitely my sophomore. Year of college and I thought begins to stand what it means to exist as A. A black woman in this world I understood this system is structured. That are against US I think a lot of people don't understand that the reform to slavery with prisons. The reform to slave catchers was police, and so when you have stopped with that truth as a woman as as a former refugee as an immigrant to this country will hold, I, experience, it was not possible for me to say I love blackness and not become an abolitionist. Something else. That's near and dear to your heart, and also the work that you do is the story of Keith Davis Junior talked to us a little bit about Keith and his story so keep Davis Junior. Is a twenty eight year old black man for Baltimore, who was shot at? Times by the Baltimore Police Department in June of Twenty fifteen. He's being accused and they're saying that it gun was founded in Keith was connected to a murder. In March he was sentenced to fifty years, and after five years in five rows, Amish. It's been an ongoing case that five years WWLTV's dedicated to. Always bring her into the space. Kelly Davis has four beautiful children and Khloe Amari and Jaden and his case is so connected to what was happening in Baltimore after Twenty fifteen after the murder of Freddie Gray talk to me a bit about how keeps life and story relates specifically to your Abolition Work Keith case is connected to abolition one, if forces us to see kids humanity beyond what he did as a child chief, interaction with the criminal justice system started very early, and what we know is that it was a result of all of the conditions that came with Keith birth his stories parents. Parents his poverty, and so forth, and so as a result of that chief found himself funneled into a system. That once you've been in there. It's easier to keep coming back. If Selah commits a crime, we have to ask ourselves if the necessities of somebody is not being met, and instead were thrown them in a cage cage is actually more violent and transformed into a even more violent person with Keith case what we've seen has been a blatant disregard for any kind of laws, any kind of good faith and what we saw for the past five years is lies and lies and lies and confirms. That meet cannot possibly rehabilitate a system that has no

"He WanNa hurt somebody who hurt you. We can't make a life that way not for your eleven month will daughter. Not For all my little nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews, and all the children on the earth. There billions more people on this planet than there were when I was born bilious. Billy. What can we do together? As humans living well on the planet, instead of living poorly and destroying the planet. Those are the questions we ask ourselves. Now some number of people. Have gathered periodically. Twenty or twenty five years who have insisted there is a quote bipartisan close quote way to reform the excesses of the criminal system in the United States. In my view. Bipartisan criminal justice reform is nonsense. It's nonsense for a number of reasons first, and foremost it's nonsense because it purports to be able to identify the people who should not be punished and set aside all those who should be punished to label those who should be punished. The people quote we are afraid of close quote. Those are Newt Gingrich's words. And leave them aside and perpetual punishment while a few people who we might call the low hanging fruit, get some kind of relief whether that relief is decriminalization or something like house, arrest or Carson ration- that kind of thing. Meanwhile the people who are participating in these bipartisan reforms. Are Very Busily. And somewhat effectively as K whitlock has shown in her fantastic writing. Trying to relieve white collar. Business type wrongdoing of any kind of accountability in a court of law. Ruthie. I discussed the sophisticated but deceptive and harmful way that the myth of a bipartisan coalition allows conservatives and Libertarians to exploit the experience of the most vulnerable as a way to reduce accountability for the most powerful. Many of the kinds of rules or constraints that they are trying to bust down and some of the day in this instance are people like from Olin Foundation or the Cock brothers or the Manhattan Institute the Right Wing think tanks. What they're trying to bust down, if anything that gets between them and their ability to extract value from Labor and land. And furthermore what they're trying to get around is being responsible for any. Bad Effects of their business decisions and practices. If. It can't be proved. That they engaged in these business practices, knowing and intending to harm people. Therefore. If they do some kind of work. Let's say at a city called Flint. That poisons the water that the people of Flint. Drink. The capitalist firm, the establishment or establishments responsible for poisoning, the water that humans rely on. Can't be held responsible if they didn't intend. To poison the water knowing that humans would die. A. Wow Do you understand what I'm saying. The way in which this links to the kind of what you call law fair that has emerged to protect police officers. Thank you. You made my day. And that does it for this week's show.

"And so on. We know from talking with and working with colleagues and comrades who are fighting against land, grabbing whether it's from black farmers and Mississippi or landless peasants in Brazil or Mozambique that given the fact that seventy percent. Of all the foods consumed on this planet is still produced by small producers that we have already there. The opportunity to free ourselves from that deprivation and degradation that agribusiness produces so this is another way of thinking about freedom. So. These are some of the large ways that abolitionists are trying to think, but think concretely about what it is. People already do or already know how to do. Already should be able to do if they only felt empowered if you will to do it. Well abolitionist recognized the oppressive contradiction built into American notions of freedom. that. Make it so difficult to gain accountability from the police. They go beyond reformers who simply want to limit the project of justice to convictions. Across the country, we've seen the emergence of campaigns to dismantle police departments and de-fund the police. I wanted to get ruthies perspective on the mainstreaming of these demands. No abolitionist. WHO's a true abolitionist wants to save money. What we want is for the money to be spent to enhance and support human life so that it can flourish in a way. That doesn't destroy the planet. We're not about cost savings. Although every so often, abolitionists will line up with people who are about cost savings, and sometimes we'll travel in the same direction for a few minutes, and then generally part company. What therefore we're talking about is divest from police, prisons, courts, and so forth and put those money and human resources into schools social work. Green new deal or read green new deal. Economic activity things that communities municipalities states can do. As, we saw five or six weeks ago. The Congress of the United States in connection with the administration of the United States forty fives administration. Printed which is created out of thin air, something on the order of a trillion dollars. Trillion dollars most people who are listening to this have no idea how many Zeros to write down to indicate a trillion dollars as written number. So much money. Where's that money going? If that money were loaded into helicopters, and those helicopters zoomed over the United States and the money were throwing out the windows of the helicopters and floated to the ground. People picked it up. Most people would spend what they picked up and that would make the economy That's not what's happening with that. Trillion dollars, most of its going into large corporations and firms or to investment banks will then decide the allocation, and some of it will dribble down eventually into the pockets in the hands of people who will spend it, but it's actually the spending of the money that will revive economic activity that is so harmed by Kovin and all of the effects that Kovin and high unemployment are reaching in the country. It could be that for some abolitionists. Calling Four. This massive divestment re vestment. Will be the frontline demand, whereas for some people who are going in the same direction as abolitionists. The call will be for those four. Cox in Minneapolis to feels who experience the full brunt of the laws that currently exists. Insofar as at the moment we're going in the same direction. Those two things can be called for at the same time however. Those four cops experiencing the full brunt of the law. Will Not in and of itself change the larger structural issue that abolitionists are constantly trying to help people see imagine and shift. ruthie is discussing an issue this painful for us to talk about right now, but crucial for us to confront. If our movement is really about transforming systems of criminal punishment into something else can we really rely on these organized systems of violence to get justice for our loved ones that have been killed by the police? I mean. Do you have thoughts about about how to negotiate that and movements where there seemed to be these conflicting? Ideas around punitive. Way To talk about it. Is? For people to think through which is to say, talk through and feel, explore and experience in. Interactions with other people what we want to get. Out of punishment as against what we want, the world to be liked..

"Ruthie. Why wouldn't you want the people who killed your cousin to be locked out? The answer is that wouldn't bring my cousin back. If they were locked up forever. That would mean that their families would suffer as my family has suffered, and it wouldn't solve the problems at the Black Panther party that other parties striving for liberation were trying to realize in the world olive that made me abolitionist either abolitionists can tell you their stories. We all came together, not because we thought the people in prison were innocent, but because we knew that prison wasn't solving the problems that we in our communities were struggling to resolve. All of them could see how the vulnerability. Every day vulnerability for modestly educated people in the prime of their life. Could not be addressed in a meaningful way as long as the forces of organized violence and prison expansion took the place of solving the problems that people actually experience. I can't count the number of times that I've used the word freedom in protests here in Philadelphia in places like Ferguson Missouri, New York and elsewhere. Backup backup. We want freedom. It's a cry. We use to back down the advance of police in the costal state. But in the introduction to root these two thousand seven Book Golden Gulag. She said something. That is both disturbing in clarifying. And I'm going to quote this. The practice of putting people in cages for all a part of their lives is essential feature in the development of secular states, participatory democracy, individual, rights and contemporary notions of freedom. Concepts of freedom. Are Constantly struggled over. Circulated the planet over the last five hundred years, and it didn't begin. With the expansion of European colonialism and imperialism, but certainly these concepts concepts of freedom central to the struggle of how we make life. So the American project tests the word freedom. Written large. Cross every document, although liberty kind of more strongly than freedoms in some places. and. For some people. Perhaps people for whom a reformist reform is adequate. Freedom to participate in all of these institutions and agencies of opportunity and control is adequate for others of us. That freedom isn't enough. That freedom actually doesn't make possible the flourishing. Of Life as it should be in part, because it rests on an unspoken or not spoken enough foundation of colonialism as well as. An unspoken problem.

"A Are could be written. But are they really being followed as Laura right when she says The industry has had a lot of change. It's been an enormous and dramatic amount of change in the the last two years. Virtually every facet of Hollywood from the agencies to the studios to the guilds as mentioned the screen actors guild have come up with new guidelines basically to prevent the emergence of another Harvey Weinstein. And so far anyway. People seem to be taking them seriously as opposed to the old days when they might sort of snicker at a sexual harassment video the HR department ask them to watch. How different is because you mentioned the HR department videos? And I think a lot of people who working in more traditional environments are used to seeing those so how different is that from and the entertainment industry when it comes to experiencing a reporting sexual harassment. Quite I mean one of the things that I think makes people who work in film and Television. Unusually vulnerable is the fact that they're on these. He's sets for short periods of time. They're not technically employees of a company. They are independent contractors so there isn't an HR department at that. You could go and report to in many cases And there are also really untraditional ways in which people get jobs case in point think have going for a job interview in someone's hotel room well in in Hollywood that was very common in most industries. That would be strange. The time's up organization. Just just released a safety guide to address misconduct in the industry. What does that guide represent? Do we know sort of what some of the parameters of safety safety are in the guide. Well a couple of things that that times up addresses in the guide are the situations where so many of these problematic encounters occurred so for instance auditions again which which larger and mentioned in that clip. You played additions are sort of this strange nebulous area. Where power was abused in many cases? The time's up guidelines tell actors. If you're invited to to an audition in a place that is not comfortable for you you have the right and in fact it would be a good idea to suggest another place It tells you that you can have multiple multiple people present. It just doesn't have to be you. And the director or you and the producer the guidelines also address nude scenes which are an area where there has been a lot of discomfort furred unawareness about how to deal with with boundaries and how to respect boundaries on set interestingly nude scenes have also sparked the creation of whole a new job in Hollywood. which is that of the intimacy coordinator? We actually spoke to someone at the takeaway into BC coordinator called Jacklyn Francis. Who Goes by Jack The stripper about her work on the set of the movie? Hustler's let's take a listen intimacy. Coordinator is something that is starting to happen in films that portray sexual contact so we weren't don't like simulating sex onset. But I was there to be like. Are you comfortable with this move. Are you comfortable doing this. If you're not let's try something else like it's not about doing exactly what you think you're supposed to do as a stripper stripper. It's about doing an expression of what feels right to feels natural to you. So we're working with constance Jennifer thank. Well how would you WANNA move. If there's that you don't enjoy don't do it with the last thing that we want anyone to feel uncomfortable. Comfortable Are you hearing a lot of that From the folks that you talked to in Hollywood Rebecca. Yeah I would say nude scenes is an area where there's still a lot of work to be done. There are so many scenarios where people can be made to feel uncomfortable and where they don't necessarily know how or where to express that discomfort case in point. My colleagues at the Hollywood reporter did a piece recently about the actress. Ruth Wilson on the showtime show the affair and why she had left that show that I heard on some mystery surrounding it. It turned out it was largely to do with the way nude scenes were handled. And how when she expressed his comfort with them Her her concerns were apparently not taken seriously. We spoke to the actor Mark Ruffalo also here at the takeaway about this new chapters At least that Hollywood is is in. And here's what he had to say about the changes that he's been seeing. We're all meeting before we shoot the movie all of us the whole crew. Everybody Buddy and it's explained to us or what discrimination is what sexual harassment is all of these things that we have have been sort of assuming our whole lives and have been taught cultural norms. Our whole lives were changing. Rebecca is that Is that change also happening among the men in Hollywood as mark is is sort of alluding to there. I'm sure every actress wishes she could work with Mark Ruffalo. Who is like one of the nicest people in Hollywood I it? There's clearly a cultural change regardless of gender that's happening in the industry three one of the things however that comes up that makes me think okay. There's been a lot of progress made but there's still some work to be done is. I often talked to people who have reported an issue. I've talked to alleged Weinstein victims alleged victims of other Perpetrators in Hollywood and they say that they're having having trouble getting work. They they feel that they're sort of a scarlet letter on them because they spoke up now. They're considered a troublemaker or a rabble rouser. Is that still today with with the trial going on on an and every and the new charges coming out of La. Do you think that that's still happening. Well indeed I mean in reporting I've done on the on the trial itself. Some of those victims have told me day feel feel that specifically because they spoke up about Weinstein they're not getting work elsewhere in the industry the same thing came up on a piece. I recently did about women who had spoken up at Fox News regarding Roger ailes that they had largely not been able to find work elsewhere in TV news so on the one hand we're putting all of these systems was in place to ensure that these kinds of behaviors don't happen. What I think the jury is still out on his when people do report Do Their career suffer is. Is there adequate support for them. Rebecca Keegan is the senior film editor at the Hollywood reporter Rebecca. Thanks so much. Thank you inmates. At multiple correctional facilities in the state of Mississippi are facing an emergency. See seeing what I call a massacre on my heart is broken because we failed these guys and we need victory for the past week. In alarming wave of violence in the state's prisons has led to at least five confirmed deaths advocates and inmates claim. The death toll may be higher hire Malaysia. Canada is the founder of the Jalen Barker Foundation and a prison reform activist Mississippi. New Year's Eve haven't had any sleep until last night. It's been heartbreaking. The most thing of it is fear. What did you WanNa hear next at two o'clock in the morning I'm hearing it was somebody was attack three three o'clock in the morning? You hear somebody's attack not being able to help them. It's the worst feeling that I have had. I just want to change because I have a lot of loved ones that is in. Yeah and I want them to come home one day. Details of the situation are scarce and sometimes unreliable with families saying officials are leaving them in the dark but footage gathered By inmates with contraband. Cellphones show rundown facilities fistfights injuries. And even dead bodies which they've been sending from the inside. Many of the the families say they just want answers. One of those victims were stabbed was a family member. You can see him on video being stabbed inside the cell fabric and then we constant. We're we're easy. No one is able to tell us anything toll. Tell us the truth. Let us be there with them because you know that this has happened then be beside him let benefit least in in the in the lobby is say so they can say well. Yeah he's okay. This latest violence is only a glimpse of problems within Mississippi's criminal justice system. That go back for years. There's alesia Santo is a reporter for the Marshall Project. And she's with me now to help us explain what's happening at least you. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you for having me. Let's take a step back here. There're era problems within the Mississippi criminal justice system and facilities. Give us a sense of what those are the. MDC prison system is extremely understaffed Say That's one of the key problems. They're facing that. Many prison systems across the country are facing so when you have a lack of staff you have a lack of ability to bring people to programs to have visitors to let people go to church or work and you also have A situation particular to Mississippi that we know of where the gangs have a lot of control over the facilities. We did a story about the Wilkinson prison. which is one of the prisons in Mississippi? That's privately run it's run by a company called. MTC and in a an audit that we obtain that was meant to be internal The prison officials actually admitted to auditors that they relied on Gangs to run the facility due to the lack of staff that they had and if the control did not come forward if they didn't actually keep control of that particular pod then they would go on to lock down and it kind of leads to this cycle where a lock down where people can't move leads to very very hi tensions and as soon as those doors open up that's when the violence comes pouring out. Is that what we're seeing now with this latest wave of violence in these Mississippi facilities. I think it's something you have to think about in the background of what's been happening that led up to all of this so we here at the takeaway reached out to the Mississippi Department of Corrections for comment on what was happening. The extent of their response was a link to a statement that they'd published on January third. The statement says that a lockdown will continue in the state's prison facilities. He's while they investigate the recent violence. Have you heard anything else from officials in Mississippi right now about the state of what's happening so far. A lot of questions remain unanswered including luding. How many other people were injured? And what other incidents might have occurred other than the ones that resulted in death. We've often relied on public records requests to do our reporting with MD.. I mean I can't say they've never answered questions they certainly do at times but I think it's a lot more reliable to use public records law and order to just get the documents we heard at the very top Alexia from A woman who says she has loved.

Tony Awards Preview

"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma. This is a woman who when she was two years old was in an automobile crash, and was never able to walk again. And now on Broadway playing eight oh Anne who is like the sexual. Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough. But when you watch her play at you, forget the wheelchair exists, and you're watching her take over the stage like Dolly Parton. She, it's just an amazing thing to watch and it works on so many levels. So I wanna be there when she wins that Tony, and I want to be standing up and applauding and going Bravo. She deserves all right. Best featured actor in a musical Andre shields in Haiti town and a groups Luccin. That's a good name into Patrick page in Haiti's town germy, pope in into proud the life and times of the temptations and Ephraim Sykes ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations, the favorite, the one, I think will win is under the shields and Haiti's town. He's seventy three years old. He stands on that stage is the narrator in like a silver suit. In total control of body and every movement and pulls you in till you're memorized. Your mesmerizing you not take your eyes off of hundred shields. This is a veteran actor who needs to get this Tony. But what if he didn't who would go to there's a young actor named Jeremy pope who plays Eddie kendricks in the into proud the life and times of the temptations? And who does he's playing a difficult man. One of the most difficult of the temptations. But one of the most talented as well. He's also nominated this year as best actor in a in a play in choir, boy, this is to me, the brightest newcomer that you will see on the stage and you're going to see him everywhere, stage movies television. It's just the beginning. So if you get to see this, you're going to be able to tell your friends, I was there win. Okay. Best director of a play Rupert Gould for Inc. Sam Mendes for the Ferryman Bartlett. Fair for to kill a mocking bird Ivo von Hosver for network, and George C Wolfer Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Sam Mendis in the Ferryman this play. Does a job on stage that equal to his first movie which was American Beauty, which you may remember won the best picture? Oscar and once Mendis the Oscar as best director.

"And he's had time to process his own goodbye. It's much more raw. I mean, I totally understand where she's at with it. I get where she's at. I would've liked to have seen a different of Lucien in her in that night because it feels like she goes through and. Ocean arc I realize she's very little time to process this. But she starts off nauseated at physically vomiting. Wow. She is really sensitive. I don't know if she's released a gifted I look at the circumstances. Is it crazy to react this way to vomit to be sick to your stomach? I just think let the punishment fit the crime, I've never dealt with this. But I have known many people whose marriages survived infidelity. This was a one night stand not an emotional affair. It was a one night stand with a very bad consequence. And she doesn't believe she's like one time never means one time as she's spiteful and hurt. Oh, if she's fucking you. She's fucking everybody. And can't we side with that? I mean, what it'd be infuriating to be so upset to find all these things and the other person's like will handle it. Don't worry. I gotta do this other thing, by the way. Can you get me this phone number? I left in my jacket. That's the hard part. I've been there. I have been in the mid. Middle of a fight with a girlfriend and needed something practical, and it was not ready. Yeah. Exactly. She wants him to be concerned only with their household. That's completely understandable. But that's not the game. He's playing. I'm juggling too much. And I am not going to draw one ball, and you are on my list of priorities, but you're not even necessarily number one. That's the hurt. That's the pain. One other thing point out is that the actress who I've also seen in many British costume dramas Ruth Wilson said that she came up with the idea with the director that she had already wanted to leave lock that in her mind because he was more concerned with his buildings and all of that that she had been dissatisfied without even fully realizing it, and that this was an opportunity for her to go with that feeling of let's do something else because I'm actually not happy in this marriage. That would help if I could have gotten some of that from the character that would've really helped that this would actually be a relief to her this gives her. Her the out. She's not the bad one. Yeah. Well, there I mean, it's called subtexts. Are you saying she's the I feel like she's the bad one in this scenario? It is lock. She's not the bad one. If she wanted to leave and she just abandoned her family, she'd be seen as the bad one. But now she's able to shirk all responsibility and blame onto her husband because her husband had an infidelity with consequences. Bright allows her to go through with things that were harder. If she thought he was committed, and obviously they both care about their sons the thing that's interesting about Tom, Holland and the other young actor Bill Milner as I think it's true for many men. It's not true for me and my father because my father liked auto racing. And so I never got into it. And so this whole idea of when we talk about sports, we're really talking about how much we love each other is not a thing in my household. But I do believe that many men have trouble being emotional with one another and they do use things like talking about winning soccer game as a stand in for saying. I love you. And I respect you. And in fact, we'll see that. And the way that Tom Holland's Eddy. Sometimes like he calls after he knows what's going on. Mom is stairs. Throwing I wanna talk about the score. I talk about mom, and then I'm going to go back to talking about the score. Because that's where I'm comfortable men. Art, speaking zero typically, they're not comfortable talking about their emotions and lock is obviously very compartmentalized very detached from them. We can see that he's going through them. It's helpful because we're in the car with him looking at this incredible internal actor who can give us that performance that we had a lesser actor. We might not believe that he's David by what he's doing as is. But to me, it's incredibly moving to see him talk sports with his son knowing that he's really trying to say, I wanna come home with you..

Meghan Markle's family 'banned' from top reality TV shows

"Talking TV Talk. About eight should? Also, watch it we've got Alexander's Alvin? On from the. Decider decided common. Great great website the affair is coming to an end is that right Alex, what do you know about this that is correct we. Don't know ton of information is currently running a season. Four that ends about mid August but. Decided to end the show on their own terms they're gonna do one more season after. This season five? And then that's, it for the shell we don't necessarily know how. Many episodes or what's it going to be on this plane what is this I'm sorry the I've never Yeah it's been? A big hit for oh Oh Attorney is really. Love More attorneys, the actress in it right from turning west Ruth, Wilson and Josh Jackson aka pac- from Dawson's creek Say they're going to wrap it up after another season which is, a very, nice for the actors, very nice for fans of the show to habit, and on its own terms Over at HBO they've got a hit on their hands with this Amy Adams show sharp objects haven't seen it yet, here great things about it people were hoping, there'd be more but it looks like maybe one season an app for this Yeah one of our great writer editors Megan keys it's actually currently out at the TCI which at the, television, critics association tour where there's ton of panel's going. On so she has a lot of coverage going. Up about it and one. Thing that happened was Casey. Is the head of. HBO and the very first panel, came out and said Nope new season two for sharp objects You know it's it's, interesting when, you look. At that compared to save big little lies both of them were based on books nobody really expected to, be a second season of big little? Lies, because there's no other books beyond, that but. According to him all of the actors on big allies were super into doing more they really wanted to pursue it. So they ended up doing on the other hand sharp objects. Very dark it's really hard character for Amy Adams to play with story is going to be done after one season, so, no season two for the show This is a story? That I, read, the sporting Alex and I didn't clear it with you I don't know. If you're aware of it but I. I'd love your comment on it Megan Markle the new Princess there in England there's now been a ban. On British television saying, that her family you know she has an extended family with a. Half brother and a half sister. I happy and say beat up the half brother, it gets, it gets. A little crazy they say that no member of Meghan Markle's fat family is allowed to appear on a. British reality show did you hear this No I haven't heard about that they say that damaging to, the reputation, of the royals so they've put out an edict saying in America if. You wanna do that, because I think her half. Sister is up for some American reality. Show but they say as far as great British television is concerned they won't have it good for I. Mean listen that's okay Not everybody needs to be on a reality. Show right I think ultimately. There right get something that. Megan Markle do and she. Was getting into royalty is, that her tire life would. Change forever and ultimately it is, going, to change your family's forever, and, it's it's kind of, nice that the other. Folks well just, profit offset. And, drag you know potentially dragged. Her name through the mud as things off it happened. With reality show so I'm all for that I'm still watching big brother I don't care about Julie ten less moon Vizor anything and I just have, to say please if if you like, fun television maybe a, little violent but I love preacher. I love, it, love it That. Show is absolutely bananas. Insane and it's only got crazier I was talking. To? Some folks most recent episode? Which opened up a pretty much, opens up with about five to ten minutes it takes place in one room. And honestly they have some of the best staged fights. On television it's all mostly one take the camera just. Kind, of zips around the room, has four, different characters are fighting it's funny it's exciting I love. It and three words crazy. Betty Buckley I mean I'm. Telling you Betty Buckley for. Betas enough but he is, Madam Lansdale and she is. She is a main Maine woman, wow, she's really a great actor, I, didn't know she had, that inner that's excellent. Right I'm watching. For that Do this story for me Carlton chooses is one of the guys who I created. Lost and I know he did some work with net. Flicks on a, show called locking key that I don't really know too much about but there's been some news about it what do we need to know there yeah so this is actually based on one of my favorite. Comic books of all time it's, written by Joe hill Stephen. King's son the art is by fantastic artist named Gabriel Rodriguez at some dancing around development for a really long time there was. A initially going to be a series on, FOX they shot a pilot which if you can track. Down to spend tastic that never got, picked up then they were going to do a series of movie is. Those never, got picked. Up the shot another pilot for, Hulu. Which also. Didn't get, picked up and now finally after years networks, has officially picked it out with Caulton cues. And Joe hill working together as. Show. Runners for the show they're. Gonna do to ten episodes in skimpy. On at. Some. Point in the future And. In general pitch, for the, weird house up north has a bunch of magical keys that each do different things a family moves into the house and battles a dark entity who wants possession of all the keys sounds good Yes it's. Fantastic at a little bit of a little bit? Of a spoiler full disclosure I actually make, a small appearance in the book every. Really, yeah really so fingers crossed I'm going. To be on the. Show oh that's so exciting what are. They going to, have a lost reunion because I would like a reboot. Of loss so then they can finish it properly they they've talked about that quite, a bit Linda Lavin, collagen cues they've. Said, they. Are done. With it they're completely lost but they expect because it was such a popular property it's only a matter of time. Until ABC or somebody else does her boss reboot but when they do they're not involved oh interesting. All right Keep our eyes open for that Alex great to talk to. You, thanks.
