Swing watching that situation and the black lives matter movement also just incredibly ignorant response from most people on the Internet. That kind of sparks. I think my early interest in trying to talk about these topics on Youtube especially once I saw that a lot of the politics that was going on youtube was like ignorant at best and like Senator Fascist propaganda at worst no things to the power of algorithms the more videos Natalie watched on youtube about things like feminism racism et Cetera. The more crazy shit she saw and the deeper she got into the radicalized rabbit holes of Youtube. My recommended videos feed on Youtube was suddenly full of these videos. Titles like feminism is cancer. Black lives matter is a racist terrorist organization. You know Like these are the talking points that were sort of growing on Youtube in two thousand fifteen. I knew enough to know that was bad. Natalie decided to launch her own YouTube channel. Contra points as a new wants to entertain encounter to all the right wing propaganda. She was seeing on the Internet and as a way to understand why these movements were bubbling up in the first place. Her first video was on in. Cells Aka involuntary celebrates and it's been watched more than three million times and this video. I don't WanNa mock insoles or lecture them or even sympathize with them. I just want to understand who they are. And why they're like this to start with. Sometimes the over thirty five minutes Natalie. Deconstructs in Selma Sajjan step by step grappling with their ideas and even offering some empathy. And that's the key to our videos and a real part of her success. So in your videos you confront a lot of toxic ideas around things. Like in sells for instance. So what is your goal? And how do you approach? Debunking these arguments while it is anthropological. I guess in some sense that is. I'm making a video to inform like a general public about this unusual online subculture. Most very aware that the people from that subculture are going to watch the video. So I I TRY TO MAKE VIDEO. That has like an escape hatch or like a life. Preserver a rope thrown whatever metaphor. I WANNA use that basically allows someone who's watching videos as an incentive to not feel like I'm simply just antagonizing them but also the at least making the effort to understand where they're coming from but my natural inclination when I'm reading this stuff is to be like. Oh Wow this is like these. People are horrible. Impossible to get along with their credit misogynistic but they're also like really really lonely and unhappy and I can try to make a video that doesn't just caricature them but 'cause that's pointless to me so. I try to give people three dimensions what I'm describing them when I'm describing these toxic online subcultures. Do you get the kinds of comments along the lines of like Yeah I mean Natalie. One's pretty liberal. But she's not like all those other liberals like I feel like that's a common trope among lake. I don't know in my conservative comment culture. Oh definitely like that's not not like other liberals is definitely kind of part of the brands like the one I hear the most actually is people say they don't feel judged by me They don't feel like I got a call from someone who said like I was only like transgender person. Could stand to watch Because I didn't make feel a dirty word during that. They would claim that about myself. But I'm glad they feel that way because that is exactly what I sort of go for. I guess WanNa make the videos. I mean I noticed early on that. If you're gonNA talk about especially the social justice kinds of issues. People are so defensive about it. And if you'RE GONNA get through to them you have to make a lot of rhetorical concessions. That might seem totally unreasonable. Like you just can't say the word transphobia most of the time it's just it's just people hate it. People hate accused of anything phobia. Just shut their brains. Doubted Shits shut their ears down. They stop listening to you and same with like calling calling. People Racist Sexist misogynist. There's a turn the time and a place for life using these words But it's not when you're trying to persuade general audience. In my opinion it just causes people to shut down. I think that's such a interesting in really important point in terms of like making the rhetorical concessions and it comes up a lot even just in terms of like you know questions we get of like. Should I call myself a feminist? Well that'd be to alienate. I mean just like basic is that. Is it more valuable to make some rhetorical concessions? If you are going to get through to a person versus using the kinds of words that will to use a term trigger trigger a lot of like hybrid conservative or like. Red Pill types. Well it's always it's always a give and take it's a question of. I mean you lose something when you make the rhetorical concessions often but for me it's about I guess I tried to start a strategize. I'm writing a script like how I can make rhetorical concessions without making ideological concessions to of my own
Kim Kardashian Goes on Tweet Storm Against Taylor Swift
"Oh my God. It's only been one day since I reported on the Kanye West Taylor swift phone call situation and I'm already like Oh fatigued by like it was fun yesterday and now. I'm just like really. We're still talking about this. Maybe it's because they didn't have coffee today. Maybe it's because we're in the middle of a pandemic but yesterday it was fun today. It is emotional. Labor and I will be invoicing Kim Kardashian and Taylor swift and Kanye West for my countless hours. Spent thinking about phone call gate anyway. Kim Kardashians like freaking out on twitter. She's like posting up a tweet storm about this Why is tweeting about it? I think she she's like upset. That Taylor posted an instagram story. So let me I tell you Taylor Swift's instagram post Taylor posted on her story writing quote instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about video footage that was leaked proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about that call. You know the one that was illegally recorded that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me my family and fans through hell for four years. Swipe up to see what really matters. And then if you swiped up you were sent to a link to donate to corona virus relief. I mean I don't have a major problem with this. I don't know Taylor's has barely like correct in what she's saying but she's capitalizing off of a major celebrity news story in order to give money to people who need it right now which listen. I don't hate. I totally support that. I think honestly more celebrities. Should we doing that right now? Anyway clearly this ticked Kim Kardashian off Kim went on a tweet rant after she saw Taylor doing mostly like an act of good and before I get into Kim's tweet storms have to speculate. Is Kim Jealous? That Taylor swift is like raising more money from her. Fans for Corona virus than Kim is like Kim Kardashian. As we all know famously is generously donating twenty percent of her shape. Wear line profits to corona virus relief but like my personal conspiracy theory. Is that not a single person has purchased shape. Wear so in my personal opinion. I think no one's buying shaper at where right now which means no one's giving money for him to donate to corona relief anyway. That's my long winded way of saying Kim was not happy with Taylor's post. She took to twitter and she tweeted a bunch of tweets. Let's see how many tweets Kim posted it six tweets in a row. I feel like for Kim. That's a lot for Kim. That's a lot okay. She wrote at Taylor. Swift Thirteen has chosen to reignite an old exchange that at this point in time feels very self serving given the suffering. Millions of real victims are facing right now. I didn't feel the need to comment a few days ago and I'm actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now but because she continues to speak on it I feel. I'm left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying to be clear. The only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her. Publicist who stated that? Connie never called to ask for permission. They clearly spoke so I let you all see that nobody ever. The word was used without her permission at the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet but as everyone can see in the video she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement when her team she said she declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such strong with Sajjan his stick message. The lie was never about the word. Bit was always whether there is a call or not and the tone of the conversation. I never edited the footage and never lie only posted a few clips on snapchat to make my point and the full video. That recently leaked doesn't change the narrative and quote. Okay so like technically I think none of these people are in the right and I think that this is all weird and like I think they're all wrong they're all It's semantics game at this point at least Taylor shift is is getting donations for corona virus off of it. I don't know what Kim is getting out of speaking on this right now. Kim is just like making herself kind of look bad right now even though I don't even think Kim is wrong. She's just like she should have just said no ping like now. Everyone's kind of making fun of Kim Kardashian. But like hey if there's anything crash. Ian Doesn't mind it's when people are talking about her so I guess can you? Oh this whole thing has aged between probably ten years. I think I'm GONNA start sprouting. Some grey hairs from this. This is a this feud this futures fund but now it's now the fun is over and I'm getting old. I'm getting old
Exposing a War Crime with Justin Watt
"On March. Twelve two thousand six during the height of the Iraq. War full members of the Janabi Family forty-five-year-old forty-five-year-old Qasim. He's thirty four year old wife Factoria and two daughters six year old at deal and fourteen year old. A B were murdered in their home in the Iraqi village. Village of USA fail south of Baghdad. Be had also been right and her remains set a lot. It was widely accepted. The attack had been carried out by local insurgents as such violence was common in the area that was referred to by occupying. Foreign Military is the triangle of death. The American soldier Private First Class Justin. What was stationed in Iraq? At the Thanh months off that Janabi family slaying. Ajayi sajjan confided that one of their fellow soldiers was responsible for the brutal crime. Justin pussies friendships Corre- and David. He's lot but risk but conducting talking. He's uncovered investigation into the matter. He discovered several of the soldiers were involved to varying degrees and made the difficult decision to expose posed them for the American soldiers. Sergeant Paul Cortez Specialist James Baca Private First Class Jesse spillman private first this class Brian Howard and Private First Class Steven Green with band to of planned carried out and covered up the ripened murder of be as well as the massacre of her family. Ole Five individuals faced charges by their involvement and received varying convictions. Green had been discharged from the US army mental instability prior to the crime's coming to lot and was consequently trod in civilian court while the other four perpetrators is faced the US army general courts Martial Green. Who was responsible for carrying out? The Med is sentenced to life imprisonment with no possibility. PF parole he took his life shortly after the remaining perpetrators was sent to military prison to serve a varying sentences. You just what's actions led to mixed opinions from the American public some viewed as a hero while others accused him of being a traitor data and sent him death threats. His decision also impacted the Iraqi paypal creating hostilities. Between the locals insurgents and touring military three Justin has since been medically discharged from the army and has spoken with US candidly about military experience including the Janabi family family murders adding additional context to our episode on the crime. Justin started by telling us how he came to join the military before nine. Eleven by buddy names all and we're GONNA do the steel challenge together. They had a program in the navy. That dead allowed you to join with a friend. She going at the same time in guaranteed you a selection slot to go to buds went through got qualified for that. What I was seventeen at the time and I showed up to maps like the process for joining the military? Here in America's like you'll go through talk to a recruiter you'll do. There's some preliminary testing then you have to go up to maps for you know. Some physical batteries stuff apt to batteries. Stuff like that on the day that I was supposed go to maps. And that's where you sign your contract. My buddy bailed on me completely so I went up there on my own and as it turns out the job it was like a crypto does slash networking like computer type position. That wasn't available anymore and so I was like okay. I'm not going to do this because I was seventeen. you can't join into your eighteen hours in what was called the delayed entry program so you get all your stuff done when you're seventeen and then basically as soon as you're eighteen you ship out. I basically dumpstered the idea. Nine nine eleven happened and like in a serious relationship. You know I had a pretty decent job I was a blackjack dealer. Casino pit boss. The relationship ended and I remember just being in a position where I was just Kinda like okay. Like what am I gonNa do now because like all of my plans kind of like based around future with that person listen and you know. I had no idea what I was going to be doing. And I was like cleaning out my room and I found my body and my original ship date was supposed to be on September eleven and at that point I was just like while somebody else's probably like in my place. I just watched band of brothers. Zoom may be sound like the biggest cliche ever. But you literally after watching that I was like you know I want the hundred and first airborne infantry and if you're not going to give him I'm not going and at at that time the Iraq war kicked off this is like two thousand four. I want to say so it. It just really kicked off in Iraq. Ans- dance they couldn't find people join just as Iraq was a lot bloodier then Afghanistan. And so I got like a twenty thousand dollar bonus for joining the infantry which is unheard of because it's a it's a low like agr- apartment job. Yeah twelve days later from that data I found that I D I was on a plane for Benning to get into training so went through that then Amelie after that the air assault school school has learned a robot of the jobbers which is a big part of the hundred and first does and then got on my unit you know and it was. It was a very different thing to go through all the training knowing that. You're going to war like everybody. They're sergeants that were teaching. Just got back. It was their first combat deployment. mm-hmm there's people that were in the logistical infrastructure of basic training. They were headed down to the hundred. I with me so I know there was a lot of camaraderie. I I think apprehension everyone. Everyone knew with certainty that they were going. Everyone knew that it was popping off over there. So yeah yeah I mean it was. It was a crazy time for sure when we sent in Iraq so the way it worked out is I got down to one hundred I I I. And that's where I linked up with my unit and you get assigned to accompany and everything and that's how I ended up in First Striker Bravo Company the unit that the book was based not got down there on the mmu pre-deployment spin ups. you go out and do more training. You know out in the field and like these stimulated urban combat villages at the National Training C. C. Out in Louisiana we see Anna and you do training pull unit and then as smaller elements. Then you go. I mean usually get stood down a couple of times just because they don't like people knowing exactly when you're going to be leaving with how many people you're going and everything like that just operational security stuff so I wanna say so. From the day that we're seagoing. There is like a couple of week variation we went and we stopped in Germany on the way there and then landed in Saudi Arabia. You did our last combat zero before getting down into into theater which is like make. Sure Weapons Still dialed in. And then yeah. We're down to Iraq doc. We landed in Baghdad. It just a different world. I mean you land there and the war machine is is pretty pretty sophisticated so like by the time we got down there. We'd only been in Iraq in that kicked off two thousand. Three's basically the end of two thousand and four early two thousand and five. They already had this. Main kind of super base built up in in Baghdad. was called striker at the time and there was like a Pizza Hut and green bean copy. It's just weird but then you're like walking around in this area. That feels kind of like you know a military base and then you'll be talking with your friend and then all of a sudden you hear like a a huge explosion. A few hundred meters outside the perimeter. Then you'll hear a bunch of machine gun fire and from a couple of different areas and then you it'll just go silent right and you're like somebody has died at their like. That's crazy I it was just a a weird transition.
Antisocial: Online Extremists, Techno-Utopians and the High-Jacking of the American Conversation
"Andrew Marantz joins us now from Chicago. He is a staff writer at the New Yorker occur and the author of a new book called Antisocial Online Extremists Techno Utopians and the hijacking of the American conversation enter. Thanks thanks for being here. Thanks for having me these pretty not nice people that you research for this book. I don't want to bum people out too much with the subject matter and I and I don't think of it as purely just trying to dunk people's heads in the scary toilet bowl of the Internet. You know my goal is not to just sort of tore people through who the badness and show it and say hey look at all these bad people. There is an element of that and I was spending three years hanging out in person primarily and also online with some pretty odious people. But it's really a kind of test case for what the Internet can do to us and kind of how we can understand it well enough to to pull ourselves out of it so so it's not merely just gawking. Seal injected teeny bit of hope. Perhaps into this world some hope some some diagnosis of where we're at and also I thought of it to use a kind of nerdy philosophical term. I thought of the whole thing as a kind of reductio AD absurdum that if we had a functional informational landscape this is not where we would have ended up so it's really sort of about how information in in technology and media have led us to the place where we're at now and how we got here all right before we get into the topic which is very serious on a lighter note. Perhaps I couldn't help. But I don't know if you've seen this movie on an airplane Longshot. With Seth Rogan. And Charlie's Theon have you heard about this or seen it. I haven't seen it okay. So it opens up with a journalist is sort of Gonzo journalist embedding himself with Neo Nazis and white nationalists and that whole world to write about them so I couldn't help it but picture that but in all seriousness. What was it like meeting people in person? And how hard was it to break into this world. The people I was going to as a whole range that we it wasn't doesn't purely neo Nazis. There were some Neo Nazis. who were very not thrilled about me? Being Jewish and that really became an issue with them way more than I expected. I didn't expect the antisemitism to be so front and center with some people that the Jews are really kind of at the center of their dark cosmology and with them that was really an issue issue. I mean there were people who would talk to me for hours and hours and then sort of halt in the middle of an interview and go wait. You're not a Jew are you and it'd be like come on man if you're your professional antisemites for a living and you can't figure me out your your job so that became awkward. What happened when you said yes? They would kind of get flustered and one guy in particular he had a podcast called the daily show which was his very funny. About the Holocaust he was a real true dyed-in-the-wool Anti Semite right and he would brag to his followers about how he had such good Jew Dr as he called it because they're obsessed with how Jews can pass as white even though by their lights. They're not really early white so he would constantly warn his listeners. You know you guys don't get it but I do. Because I grew up in the northeast. He actually was from this. Very very multicultural. Bucolic Golic New Jersey suburb where his father taught Beowulf at college. I mean he was really like Kinda. The Progressive Dream turned progressive nightmare and his parents ended up disowning in him. And I it was a whole thing and he actually as a sidebar was married to a Jewish woman which was complicated for him so he was his own kind of little Phillip Roth novel all of a person this is just sort of like one chapter of the book but when I start going down that rabbit hole with him and then he finally finds out that I'm Jewish in the middle of an interview. He he gets very flustered. He says you had red hair so that really threw me off. You know and I'm like again. You should have had that on your list of things to watch out for happens. Yeah yeah it does happen but then we kept talking for hours. I suggested that we meet up in person. And he picked a German beer hall for us to meet at and you know they they were constantly trying to throw thrown me off my game and sometimes it worked. I mean I I have to say sometimes. They're they're trolling was effective. Even at the level of kind of unnerving me other times they really didn't and I found it kind of clownish and silly like when I showed up at a German beer hall I was like okay. You know I'm just GonNa sit here and let you do your thing and try to you. Know he tried to have an argument with me about Israel which I did not indulge him in but for the most part the earlier parts of the book I really Kinda turned to the deeper Nazi. Not Stuff after Charlottesville. When it became clear that that was a national issue that I couldn't look away from the earlier stuff was more about what they call the light? As opposed is to the outright people who are misogynist people who are Islam phobic but they fall on the correct side of what they call the J Q which is the Jewish question and these are people who were fine with my being Jewish and they really are more motivated I would say by Sajjan xenophobia and other things and when I was in those spaces I never felt unsafe. I just had to hold my tongue you know and not object to everything I found objectionable or I would never. I wouldn't have been able to fly on the wall for three years. I would have left after five minutes and I just sort of Said Okay my job here as a New Yorker style reporter is to see people up close really get a feel for who they are when they're on their own when they're mask starts to slip and I can't do my the job if I am constantly showing my hands knowing that felt weird and conflict but I felt like I would get better I better servicing the reader by putting putting it in the book than by just doing it in the moment. We're not there to Gawk because you said it just merely to do a late cecile logical observation of these people. So what was your goal with the questions that were driving you and exploring the subject. I was worried about the purely ethnographic. I mean I like a lot of books that are pretty purely ethnographic and just sort of showing what a subculture is or does as you say that the more Gonzo thing. I wanted to stay away from that particularly in our charged moment. I wanted to do something that had a little bit. More Synthesis and analysis in it and so the questions will really one of the basic questions was just okay. The reason techno utopianism is in the subtitle of the book is we had this moment in the early twenty first century when a bunch of young guys. He's like a handful of young men uprooted everything we knew about how information was was disseminated in our society. -ociety they disrupted they innovated. They moved fast and broke things they had no plan for. What would supplant those thing? Even when they were asked they didn't have a clear vision of what this Utopian future would be like. They just assumed will topple. Everything will clear out all the cobwebs of traditional hierarchical means of communication in and then something better will automatically take its place and that to me was the underlying question of the book that the this this tacit and even sometimes explicit faith in American exceptionalism in the arc of history always Kinda automatically inevitably bending toward justice that leads people to have really dangerously naive politics and dangerously naive plans for their technological future. You know I mean. We don't think of things like facebook and twitter and read it as being inherently political. But you know I spent a lot of time reconstructing how those things came into being and I spent a Lotta time physically immersing myself in the offices of read it in particular and watching how they do have a test. Ideology that motivates them and the ideology was the marketplace of ideas will sort it all out and this book was really trying trying to prove demonstratively. That is not the case. The marketplace of ideas has failed to sort it out libertarian approach to the Internet yeah. They were proudly techno libertarian. They were very into you know Liz affair above all and you know it sounds really nice to say as twitter always said we're the free speech wing of the Free Speech Party that obviously obviously in a vacuum all things being equal being pro. Free speech is Great. It's just when you don't hold that intention with other things and when you don't imagine in your mind's eye hi how dark and weird and bad things can get not that they will automatically. I mean I don't WanNa replace the arc of history bending toward justice with an equally sure. Sure faith at the arc of history will bend toward terror. And I mean I'm not that much of a pessimist I'm just trying to replace our faith in inevitability with one of what I call them. The book contingency where lots of different things can happen. You kind of have to have guardrails in place. In case something weird happened and who would have thought given that motto for twitter they would have put a ban on political advertising. Yeah I mean we've come so far away farther than even when I was shopping. This book proposal around things have changed so much in terms of you know to use another kind of stock phrase the the way the overton window on these issues has moved. It has been really surprising to me and look. It's not naturally you can't expect people to anticipate everything but you know one of the analogies. I drive to hosting a party when you start a social media company any. They like to think of themselves as a town square. Or you know public criers or
"sajjan" Discussed on The Reboot Podcast
"This question of inclusivity. And you're helping me see that. If if there's a company or someone knows listening to this podcast who's thinking about training if they step into the training mode. We're going to train her executives in diversity if they are thinking of doing that without stepping into the work that your cohort stepped into. Then it's then. What would you say? Is it it's important, but it's not enough. I think that. I think it's it's critical. I think that is different levels. Right. If there's van date level, and there's the real level as far as I'm concerned, the deep level bad is systemic because what you find out first of all is that this whole thing is is not necessarily we think of racism and racist as this individual characteristic, and yes, people can't be racist. Absolutely. They are right. But the bigger issue, and what will really talk about this stemming nature of racism in America. And how the entire structure is built built create it. On that notion on that principle and bass, the kind of learning that one gets when you and you start seeing. It opens your eyes in a whole way. So my first reaction to your to what you just said is that is really buydell that the people who are asking for this do that kind of work. So that they could see something different. They really get there really asking because then they'll start asking for something more than what they're asking for because there's more than just wanted throughout the word that equity. Okay. They versity is bringing more people into your space that are. LGBT pokes color, whatever it is. Equity has to do with power. Is about power-sharing. Okay. Because if we really want to get the work done that we need to do to make this planet tick the way that's going to be whole. And well, it's about sharing power is about folks women folks of color, whatever it is having equal power and power in organizations. So as opposed to I did my diversity quota. You know, I've got a bunch of people on the floor who now women of color, whatever it might be. And yet the entire cease week. His wife now. It's about power equity. So I have to throw in the notion of diversity inclusion equity, which we call right now. I'm so proud of I'm on the board of spirit rock as we have this really would encourage people to go to the website spirit rock things blew up morale race. Okay. Just put it bluntly quickly. And it has been a place at always said, you know, we, you know, we, of course, when everybody here and yet everybody is not there. And so we went through an amazing inner still going through an amazing process, and they put up on their website, the DA I which is diversity inclusion in equity plan and really speaking to the public about what they didn't do claiming it with humility, not Shane just honesty and what we're doing. Doing about it. And we're doing deep work there. This is not a bad day. Is not abandoned in. It's been a process, and they have put me sources behind that process. In order to write any kind of long said that has happened on this planet is not your fault. If not your fault. That's the other thing if not your fault now response done. To learn. It's not your fault. This is a systemic issue. That affects every single institution in America every institution and it trickled downs. Just like heard written Romney said. Met said. Trickled down the Sajjan. Whoa. So this is just get on. I don't know. Trumpet. But what he is done. But good thing that I think he has done is that I have never seen Republicans say those kinds of things and really come out against racism the way that they are..

It that's gonna make you pay more attention to it as well. And on top of that, we're the earning company, and you know, in all of land, or however, you know, I'm sure there are plenty of qualifiers for that. But the point is they make a crapload of money.

"And then he threatened to go to her job, and cause a scene women are at the highest risk of being killed when they leave the partners, according to experts in this field, and for many women their workplaces, then become a place of heightened danger because their partners know when and where they work so all this is to say, it is a tragedy that multiple people were killed, but the stories become so focused on the officer in some circles that that we are not paying enough attention to the domestic violence element of the story, and how it speaks to a much broader and more frightening phenomenon about how patriarchy sexism Sajjan and toxic masculinity at this sort of fatal manifestations that they have their sort of two things that I'm thinking about in response to this. The first is yet another example of clearly identifiable signs of domestic violence culminating in a. Another mass shooting that speaks to the need to buy these warning signs at take them. Seriously. When women come forward to report experiencing domestic violence, and to make sure they're folks don't have access to a gun who are exhibiting this behavior before it gets to this point. And then the second thing that I'm thinking about is as you said Clint, the centering of the police officer in the narrative when really what needed to be said was more about domestic violence than any particular threat to police, but a reminder that police often are threatened to by the fact that people who are violent that have patterns of violence can get access to guns, and can sort of engage in these mass shootings, you know, one of the ways in which patriarchy functions that is particularly insidious is that we just aren't believed. Right. So I especially had to learn very early and very quickly as a woman that unless we use certain words or show certain signs of. Damage harm trauma that are visible to others. And that can be rationalized by people who have never been through it that we will not be believed that the idea that verbal abuse can lead to more drastic kinds of abuse. The idea that psychological and financial abuse are signs that people should be paying attention to are often just things that are not discussed in society because patriarchy functions in such a way that we treat those things as minor to the point where when a woman has been able to break up with a violent partner, and or an abusive partner, we assume to your point Clint that the dangerous over the anything that they could be scared about their after it's probably a figment of their imagination because they're safe now when in fact, it can actually escalate things as we unfortunately have seen in this case, I'm frustrated by the kind of report. Eating that. We're seeing in this. I'm frustrated at the dots are not being connected properly. And yet the fact that the dots are not being connected to this domestic violence situation. Are unfortunately, par for the chorus and very reflective of exactly how patriarchy functions especially when it comes to domestic intimate partner violence. So what I realize that I knew a lot of the things that have been reported in the news about intimate partner violence or domestic violence. I didn't know some of the some of the subtext is that sixty to eighty percent of intimate partner homicides. No matter which partner was killed the may physically abused the woman before the murder like we think about the gender aspect of this is that the majority of intimate partner homicides. There was some abuse before the homicide actually happened that half of all homeless women and children in the US are fleeing from domestic violence, and that to me like such a different way to think about homelessness or how system the country which is when half of the women and children actually, leaving abusive household or homes one of the. Found interesting to you is research that talks about domestic violence is most likely to take place between six pm and six AM. So like the after work hours, the report also there's another report that analyzed the method of homicide, and this is a new report that came out demo CD that more than half involved firearms and twenty percent involve some sort of blade. So some of the laws around giving people who have been accused mastic abuse, like restricting their access to guns like there's had eventual impact, but knives are still in shoot..

This elections a second round run-off between Bolsonaro and a candidate from the leftist Workers Party racist, bitterly, polarized, Latin America's largest democracy. We're joined now by NPR's Philip Reeves, he's envio deja narrow. Hey there Philip. So is this election essentially a done deal as he that far ahead. Will it certainly look that way of the last couple of weeks giant Bolsonaro has had an eighteen point lead in the polls. Thanks to his ability to capitalize on deep public, contempt and anger in Brazil's towards establishment politicians. He's done that despite being a congressman himself for many years, and he's channeled that anger at his rival from the Workers Party blaming that party for the recent recession, which was the worst in Brazil's history and for a huge corruption scandal because that party was in power win. Those two crisis began to play out. However, the latest poll from yesterday shows the Workers Party candidate phenomena Adagi has narrowed has made some ground and that the lead of Bolsonaro has narrowed to twelve points. A why are we seeing this late swing away from Boston are what's driving it? Eight hundred be certain. The a couple of incidents this week that might have been factors. Boston outta made a speech in which he talked about his leftist opponents as red bandits and said he wanted to drive them off the map and amount of never before seen in the history of Brazil and also a video emerged from July in which one of his sons who's also congressman is heard talking about how easy would be to shut down the supreme court.

So given that polling or these worries of both are well-founded. Well, Bolsonaro says that he's going to respect the constitution. He wants government. He says. Authority, but not an authoritarian government.

"And I don't think I know arguing that, but it puts onto screed manifest the you the fan fiction of what it would look like for? Yes, young young Harrison Ford, because some people really clean so idea that they wanted the the want their actors, they want their character. So look like the original actors more so than no one does this for Spock and we talked about Spock in the past couple of weeks. Of course it's going to come to start discovery and there's been, you know, spark kind of character is now gonna be portrayed by an adult form. I three actors, but no one's going. Give me a deep fake young letter nimoy onto the spot face in Star Trek j.j Abrams Star Trek, but people really care about Harrison Ford being. Do you think. This is gonna naval that fan behavior. I think the act of creating pop culture. That's the stole Joe base enables bad fan behavior, and it may doesn't necessarily courage it, but the bad fan favorites that come out no matter what. And that's just rather unfortunate. I think as technological exercise, I think it's super interesting, and it's a very real example of just how powerful these deep learning is. Deep fake technologies can be, why is this so positive? When we just came off of. Rogue one where we had Princess lay at the very end of it, and everyone was up in arms about it because it didn't look good. Well, look better than this, I think were as good. The ones giving the thumbs up thumbs up. The people are giving. This is the novelty of said, this being some guy and to this being algorithm generated as opposed to hand massage and case like the Hammet Sajjan part is kind of essential even with formats capture, like all the enemy captured by face that's still tweet by artists, and maybe that's helped to a higher standard, which is why the critical feedback in in. Rogue one. Was a little harsh. I wonder if what's the actress name? Who played Hansel anyone? All era. Ehrenreich ehrenreich your brains. Amazing. It's really amazing. Not if you listen to this pass up soda title stressed out for five minutes with felt like fifty minutes. So remember the name of one actor. I wonder if he knew it like if they had, if they did this in the film and if he knew that they were going to do the film, how that would affect his acting. If you knew all, then you're not hire. Eventually what you're hired to do that would maybe because they capture all the same expressions. It's like an anti circus performance. Uses voice. Sure. I don't know like they used and I just wonder if that frees him up. If he's that kind of actor, that would be free to a moat better or act differently. If you knew that your face was going to be seeing. I think that there's a stigma still for performance acting and that the surely the burden of responsibility would be shared by the effects artists and technicians who are would work on that post processing. I think the procedural, yes, the answer is yes, I think you'd be you'd feel less pressure, but it would also be less of he would feel like you'll be less of his performance. And so I, I'm glad they didn't go that way. I don't wanna see films go that way. They're places where I think it makes sense. For example, Arnold Schwarzenegger the Terminator Genesis was a, they had a young Arnold Schwarzenegger and they just imposed superimpose the face of young Arnold's purely with on a bodybuilder..

"Let's go read a book. Or you can. You can go deal with that and I'll just leave and it'll be fine. But were you and your books I? Well, I packed for camping. I may tried four books, so I'm good how many things. Two. There little book not only eight hundred as a piece. Those are little two hundred. I can read like four of those weekend reasonably and like two of them are behind line. And I don't know if I really wanna read him so I might get to pages in and be like, Sajjan. I can't read this. The thing that happens. I think I've been reading the same book for three years by him, so I'm gonna do, but anyways, totally got derailed. But I think for some people, it's genuinely hard to have that discussion. I was having a conversation with a friend the other day, and like I was talking to this person and she was talking about how I have some challenges. Other people's boundaries and kinda came to well, you're, you're kinda pretty. So it's easy to give you what you want. And I was like, I don't know what that means like, how do you adjust to that? If if you don't understand like, I don't know, that sounds terrible. So I think it can be it can be challenging to negotiate consent at times in the gray area because two people with two different understandings of what's going on. Well, and I think like we say often when we talk about almost every topic you have to be willing to just almost over communicate because you cannot make a sumptious about where people's heads are people. But you know, if you're really diligent in communication and asking more questions than you think you need to. I think that you at least have a chance at having a communication that allows you to understand the knowledge behind the decisions, maybe not, but at least you're giving it your best shot, but let's get back on consent. I know. No, I'm sorry. I got us dissected. So I'm, I'm wondering, kinda in follow up to last question. Do you defined consent differently when you're talking about sex versus personal contact, personal space, even property. That's a great question. I don't know the answer, but I'm thinking, no, I don't define it differently. I, it's still about being informed empowered to use that information to have agency and my choices and to show and receive care and to participate in a greater culture.

It's not my song. That was the one to be that one. Yeah, but no, he's a cool thing that the generational thing I remember being with a guy once and I was going on about Sajjan Pepe saying, well, you know, assuming he'd like me to give them a bit of history one on one. So. Well, Saudi beverly's gotta I'm sorry. Mom gotta have made. He said band on the run was my sergeant pepper. I was just a generational thing that was record. He thought it was. That's great. Wanguo I don't know if the the ban on the run markered like I had one very young and for some reason, I just thought Picasso's last words was like, like the greatest song ever heard is a child like you know, drink two major. Yeah, I just and then nine thousand nine hundred and eighty five on there. Like I'm not gonna just do a Chris Farley here, but when. When when you did that one, like when was that for you? The did that really make was the best of wings? Were it was on that record, you think? Yeah, I think so. At the time he was, yeah, because we we, we did a crazy thing with wings because I finished with the Beatles. I had now the the question of what am I going to do now. So the first thing I did was the mccown Iraq a which was literally just plug it into the back of Studer four track recording. Anything came. After that, then I started to get a little bit more sophisticated, but. Yeah, you know it just good nowadays. The come round. Yeah, you know when people seem to think that what we did then is good, but it's interesting too because with all the experimentation you did, which I think it was certainly with the McCartney record ram and and even like, you know, some of the earlier wing stuff wildlife, right? Is that like, you know, it was kind of all over the place and you were taking chances at all the way through it. You're making hits right about dozen or so wings hits. So I did, you know when you were recording those records, were you like, well, this one's this one's the hit and that's going to sell the record and the rest we can just fuck around with and have a good time. I didn't always know that it's not everyone in inbounds. They don't always know which the hit is. Yeah, you can make a hit. Sometimes you just think, okay. Get back was one with the Beatles for me. I didn't recognize at all. Now I just thought it was doing to tune to. To do board..

"And so I think you know something like that might happen to you. It might not. I don't really believe in quote, unquote, dressing your age, don't either. I don't think that's like a thing. I think it just sort of happens. And if it doesn't happen, that's fine too. But like I think it happens because of your lifestyle, kind of like, I don't know. I like I just sort of stopped wearing skinny jeans because they were tight. Yeah. Do that for so long. Really wanna wear these anymore, but it wasn't I. It wasn't like I was like, oh my God, I'm forty. I can't were skinny jeans anymore. Yeah, I wouldn't. I wouldn't put any pressure on yourself to change who you are, unless you're, you know, your style might evolve over time for me. My style is evolving in that, like I want to be more comfortable and I give less FOX. Yep, that's it. And that that happens because I'm aging and I think I'm kind of becoming more confident and comfortable and myself, but it wasn't like I woke up and was like today's the day. I go to lean Fisher. I mean one because I only fishers very expensive so I can't go in there that much. But boy, do I like it so I wouldn't put any pressure on yourself. I would just dress. However you feel like you want to express yourself in terms of like those voices that make women afraid of this age? I feel are the episode would with Glenis mcnicoll. I feel like it's a really good episode. Listen to read her book. I mean, I think so much of this is stuff that it's like internalized misogyny because we live in a patriarchy and external massage externalize Sajjan. Yeah. And so I think it's worth kind of examining why you have these thoughts and what they mean. And overcoming them? Yes. And it's not that it isn't hard to age or to deal with those the the pressure and expectations that come along with aging, the cultural expectations, which I think we've talked about, like having kids being partnered or having a certain job or being a certain place in your career or whatever it is. But I would say like if you can get clear about like, what are your goals and intentions and how you wanna live your life without trying trying to. Nor, but just look into yourself and see what's important, what your values are then say, like f it to all the other. Bullshit. Just enjoy your life. Yeah, I don't know if that answers your question listener, but I also think don't one thing I hate to say, don't do this, but one thing that's becoming more clear to me as I get older is that I'm less afraid of aging, not. I don't know if I've ever been afraid of aging, but certainly you have this feeling like when I turned twenty five and I was still like an intern. I didn't feel like I had accomplished all the things I wanted to accomplish. And if we are lucky, hopefully our lives are long and. There's so many opportunities for us to discover ourselves and connect with other people and have new experiences. And so I was saying in embrace it, yeah. I mean, we happen to live in a culture that venerates youth. There are so many other cultures that venerate are their elders. Yes, think if we lived in a culture where elders were really respected, imagine just imagine by elders. We mean people older than we are not elders, although we are made to feel that way. Right. And just like the thought, like you were saying the thought that getting old is itself a privilege and a and a blessing hopefully not something to be fearful of. Yeah, enjoy it.
