"Are you hiring with indeed you can post job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash perspective. That's indeed dot com slash perspective from ABC news. This is perspective. A closer look at the week's top stories and the stories you may have missed I'm Sherry Preston. Coming up the president and the nation respond to the release of the Muller report. I'm having a good day to it was called. No collusion. No obstruction. The tragic fire in Paris's Notre John cathedral. We'll examine what's left? Down know, it's. Like, I kinda part of of the Paris skyline. Parents of a college student killed in South Carolina, speak out calling for change. That's all the ride sharing companies out there. They need to do more. They need to look at the safety. All ahead on perspective. The redacted version of the Muller report is out it gives us an idea what we know about obstruction of Justice that election collusion with its public. Release pundits. And politicians are parsing its findings analyzing whether the report exonerates or further indicts, President Trump, here's ABC's, Dan, Harris, a defiant unapologetic. President Trump arrived in Florida to a crowd of supporters who clearly believe as the president declared. The Muller report represents vindication. I'm having a good day to it was called. No collusion. No obstruction. But the four hundred forty eight page report paints a far more complex and potentially damaging picture while special counsel, Robert Muller, did conclude that no one from the Trump campaign criminally coordinated or conspired with the Russians during the two thousand sixteen election. The report did not clear the president of obstruction of Justice instead painting in painstaking detail and unflattering picture of a president who relentlessly sought to use top White House staffers, political aides and the Justice department itself to quote curtail the investigation and the report Muller laying out eleven instances of possible. Obstruction of Justice. The report vividly describes the moment in the Oval Office. When then attorney general Jeff Sessions informed. Trump a special counsel had been appointed the president slumped back in his chair and said, oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm blanked. How could you let this happen? Jim. According to the report, President Trump ordered former White House counsel, Don Mcgann to have Muller fire Mcgann refused deciding that he would resign rather than trigger what he regarded as a potential Saturday night massacre shortly after he ordered his top lawyer to oust Muller, the president was asked about it and flatly denied it. Give it at anything. No, I'm not dismissing anybody. But the report reveals he was determined to do just that the president was furious after attorney general Jeff Sessions recused himself from investigating Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election. I am now decided to jeez, myself, very disappointed with the attorney general. According to the report sessions told investigators the president asked him to unrig us himself, but he would not say rig with John since the beginning Trump railed viciously against the special counsel. But no obstruction on the investigation did produce real results in all there were thirty seven indictments in the Muller probe, including several of the president's closest aides some of whom pled guilty. Robert Muller was appointed to investigate Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen elections. And while the report shows that team Trump did not conspire with the Russians. The investigation also identified numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign. They're rushing context. Consisted of business connections offers of assistance to the campaign invitations for candidate Trump and Putin to meet in person ballers team says the president's aids and his family also worked to spread the fake news. Russia had posted on social media. But Muller concluded that there was no evidence that these people knew they were promoting Vladimir Putin's handiwork for more on the Miller report and everything else happening in DC. Let's go to our ABC news political director RIC. Klein I want to go ahead and start right off with what you wrote in your great political note. Neither an exoneration nor an indictment molars report somehow represents everything and nothing to just about everybody. I think that's brilliant. Because there is something in there. And there is nothing in there. It's how you interpret it it where you stand depends on where you sit. And I don't think anyone changed sides as a result of this. I it is an extraordinary statement about politics in our country that something of this magnitude would come out, and that both sides would would hold it up and say, look, we told you so both sides say that and the president his White House says it's the best day of his presidency. Democrats are saying that this could be impeachable and in both sides could be right in a way because the behavior described in here is simultaneously. Why Democrats think he's unfit for office? And why many Trump loyalists think that he's there in the first place because he's such a disruptive force? What was the most? You know, the thing in the report that made you sit up and go there is that that's kind of big the color of his initial reaction. To the appointment of a special counsel. I'm eft tells you a lot about his mindset, but I think more than that just the the White House culture where the president was ordering of people fired ordering changes cover up type activities and that people around him were saying, no, we're not going to do that. I didn't have a clear sense in real time about how many top aides White House counsel chief of staff outside advisor, Steve Bannon, even are saying to the president, you know, what you can't do that in a lot of ways the portrait you come away. From is that the president was trying to have struck this investigation and was saved from doing. So by a staff that was just openly defying his orders. If you are a prosecutor year job is to take a case to a jury that you can win were there things in this. Do you think that that they could have won had they take it at a jury it sounded to me like it was a close call all the way on the questions of of structure with of Justice and into identify ten or so, discreet episodes as Muller did where the president either try. Ride to obstruct or lied about something or try to get a cover up or try to get someone fired. Or did get someone fired. They were all going to be close calls. And I think the Muller makes clear that part of his judgment was based on the fact that the Justice department policy makes it almost impossible maybe maybe impossible to prosecute a sitting president. I think when you add all those things up it's hard to second guess Muller's decision or even frankly bars decision, not to take a case. But man, there's a lot there. And I want one smart wag that. I follow said, you know, if this isn't obstruction of Justice would could any president ever obstruct Justice because it came so close to that line. Now looking to twenty twenty what can we expect from the Trump campaign? Do you think, you know, in regard to this and really looking forward to the campaign in general, how will the Democrats play this all the twenty or so who are running for president and the Republicans themselves? I think for Democrats hanging on Russia and collusion was never going to be a winning strategy. Anyway, and is now clear that there isn't going to be a prosecution for obstruction of Justice. So. Do they did they move ahead on a peach mint kinda think not but they're going to have to make that as a as a first judgement? And then more broadly, the the case about what do you wanna president to be like that adds weight to the arguments that you'd expect Democrats to make in the twenty twenty campaign. Okay, rick. I know you're going to be talking about this a lot more, but try to rest your voice. Thank you. Sherry, thanks for the advice. Take care. This weekend marks twenty years since the shooting at Columbine high school in Colorado.

The policy has gone from waiting for a swat team to arrive to a doesn't matter. If you've got only your soft bulletproof vest and a handgun as officer you go in and stop that threat. There's no more waiting. We've seen that inaction in places like San Bernardino, en Las Vegas. Craig Scott was in the library at Columbine when the gunman started the rampage outside his sister. Rachel had already been shot and killed. He didn't know that when he hid under a table with two friends. Neither of them survived.

While you're nearly destroyed the iconic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris this week about five hundred firefighters battling huge flames of the landmark and a human chain formed at one point to salvage art and religious relics inside ABC's, David Wright spent the week in Paris and has more on the events that unfolded. In Paris, heavy hearts. The city the whole nation really in morning. This was the biggest symbol of Paris. It's quite straightening to see all the Parisians that come here to gather to mourn for me must mines. Must include. My name is Patty. Aladdin? Notre down Our Lady of Paris to those who live here a landmark ravaged by flames. The spire of this eight hundred fifty year old landmark burnt like a torch finally collapsed. Caving in the roof. No engulfing the very center of this cathedral in flames. John. Dick has washed it all from his apartment, my partner. And I were we're standing on the balcony watching that was the moment that he started crying. When we watched that spire fall down it. It's just you know, it's such an like an iconic part of of the Paris skyline. French president Emmanuel Macron tearful called the blaze a terrible tragedy. President Trump had these words the fire that having at the Notre dumb cathedral f- is something like few people have witnessed it's one of the great treasures of the world than it's burning very badly. Looks like it's burning to the ground images from inside. Notre Dom have now been released the altar where thousands would have flocked to celebrate Easter Sunday this week covered in ash. Took five hundred firefighters to battle the flames at times, they were powerless to stop. The first reports surfaced at six fifty pm Paris time an ominous image of smoke billowing from Notre dam. The horror of onlookers flames, then bursts through the ceiling. Inferno raging out of control. Miraculously the main structure of the cathedral appears to have survived those two iconic towers at the end still standing more than a century to build this church construction began in eleven sixty three the two massive towers finished around twelve forty five considered a triumph of French gothic style. The building is French history. Carved in stone and watched over by gargoyles. This is one of the most important landmarks in France, still standing is a feeling of great sadness here and all along this end people are singing him. Notre dam survived the French revolution. This is where Napoleon was crowned emperor of France it survived two world wars, and the Nazi occupation, the heart of friends, it's cultural significance cannot be underestimated Victor, Hugo immortalized Notre dam with his Hunchback story that Hollywood is told and retold over the years, I have chores to do it. It was nice seeing you again. Notre Dame is said to be the most visited location and all of France thirteen million tourists year. That's nearly double the foot traffic at the Eiffel tower the cathedral was undergoing a six million dollar renovation project. Just days before statues of the apostles were taken off the rooftop to be cleaned. They were spared now, the reconstruction work will have to begin all over again with much more damage to undo in. You bet your. That you own them mccrone has vowed to read this. Notre dam is the heart of Paris, and the French people are determined to do what they can to save. I'm David Wright in Paris. Relics and artifacts were saved while other priceless. Works were lost in the catastrophe under the millions of dollars poured into help repair the cathedral ABC's, James Longman. Also in Paris, gave us a look inside the destruction of the most iconic relics were saved and other parts of the cathedral that will need to be rebuilt Notre Dame now sits as an open wound new images. Take us inside the twelve hour battle to save the cathedral rushing into the danger. Shooting powerful jets of water into the eight hundred fifty year old cathedral and Megyn descending on the scene. A makeshift command post outside as this piece of French history fund, the fight appointments, sending up drones stroke buds, I view while they soul the entire roof engulfed the hours. It raged. Carries of the world washed by daylight, a wide view of the destruction inside fireman. Still working to assess the damage, but all around us. Hey, black ash dock memory concerns that the building is still structurally unsound pulse of it. All going to have to be brought down in order to secure the rest of the building. We're also hearing extraordinary tales of bravery specifically from the chaplain. The fight a chaplain who rushed into save the crown of phones historic goes that he went in with the team to find the relinquish that place where the Rennick is cats. They found that it was looked he. Whilst someone's going get a key. And while that was happening. His team broke in such was the level of urgency. This was happening whilst the spy of the church had Phoolan inside. But extraordinarily twelve hundred relics and important items are in that church and insurance say ninety percent of them have been saved. They include things like a piece of wood from the cross that Jesus was crucified on. The cathedral home to evolve connection of Christian treasures from the immaculate rose windows, and it's like clinic pipe Bogan to his most sacred relic to feigned crown of phones seen in national geographic's. The story of gold more than fifteen million people come here every year, yet only a fraction of them knows that these vaulted ceilings house, one of the most precious and closely guarded relics. And all Christendom. The crown of books, even if it's not the true on it. So way of remembering okay? He really was on earth. He was a true, man. He could be that donations have been flowing in now hoping hundreds of millions of dollars much of it coming from wealthy. French citizens many boasted by the momentum a precise digital replica of the cathedral captured in two thousand fifteen has boasted hopes for Notre Dame's restoration. There's nothing written about it Mason's never stopped at the end of the day and said, I built like a funeral this way. Because. And so I've been using more sophisticated technology. These days to try to get new answers from the building's architectural historian under talent painstakingly map Notre dam and the cathedral's using cutting edge laser technology talents. What will likely prove crucial to any future? Rebuilding efforts enders. Major mission was to make sure that as many people as possible. Understood the beauty of these gothic structures Lindsay cook vesicles, which inherited the project off the talents death was a major undertaking to do this and it took place over many years. And this is something that's becoming more and more crucial, especially after the fire at Notre dawn. And it's happened to so many gothic churches over time that it's actually for a medieval, it's not at all surprising Windsor Castle was devastated by flames in nineteen Ninety-two, but in any fifty million dollar repair project soul. The queen's official residents. Reopened five years later fire gutted island, Sint mel's, Kathy. On Christmas day two thousand nine but it was restored for more than thirty million dollars in two thousand fourteen and just lost Jae a fire consumed. The national museum of Brazil decimating nineteen percent of it's collection for the people of France. There are a ton of that beloved cathedral cannot come soon enough. There are a lot of foreigners. But mostly it's Parisian's coming down. Hey in quiet, contemplation looking to see what happened to their favor building. I'm James Longman in Paris coming up parents speaking out to make change. Following the tragic death of their daughter on perspective after this are you hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash perspective. That's indeed dot com slash perspective from ABC news. This is perspective. Closer look at the week's top stories and the stories you may have missed I'm Sherry Preston. Coming up speaking with the co founder of a unique addiction treatment center, but first the parents of slain college student Samantha Joseph center, calling for new rideshare security measures Josephson's mother and father are lobbying to introduce new regulations after police say their daughter was killed by a man, she missed talk or her Uber driver ABC's Byron Pitts spoke with her parents this week. I don't think it was even in our site that this was an issue until unfortunately, this happened. It could happen to anyone. Samantha was a force a twenty one year old with the world that are fingertips a senior at the university of South Carolina, her parents seem and MARCY say she dreamt of becoming a lawyer too savvy. Lous CEO's kind funny very very funny. A best friend to everyone. Good sister to Sydney, always smiling. Always new smile when you do. She wanted to make a difference was actually. Interested in international law, just two weeks after their daughter's murder, the Josephson say they feel compelled to speak out calling for federal regulation on the ride sharing industry and urging companies like over in lift to enhance their safety protocols, and we do not want anything like this to happen to any other parent a cat. So we've felt that's doing now. It was a typical Thursday night and Samantha was out with friends at a bar near USC campus. Shortly after two AM Samantha ordered Uber. She was being responsible going home because she had to work in the morning black Chevy Impala pulled up and cement got in. We believe that she simply mistakenly got into this particular car thinking, it was a new Garad. It was not the next day her friends concern they hadn't heard from Samantha called her parents in New Jersey. Boyfriend called me and said, I just want to let you know that we Samantha didn't come home last night. And they call the police, and I just kind of froze and called Seymour. We're still talking to the police as we were in the car to drive to drive down. And we got there about twelve twelve fifteen they brought us into conference room. That point. That confirmed him taught us police told them the unthinkable their daughter was dead her body up and found by hunters in a wooded area. In a rural part of the county. Devastated. Marcie and seamer had to deliver the news to their youngest daughter, Sydney. It's still. Hurts. We're still very emotional. Police track down the vehicle from surveillance video and arrested twenty five year old Nathaniel rolling in a traffic. Stop around three AM inside police say they found liquid bleach cleaning wipes and window cleaner. Police say the suspect trap Samantha in his car. The child safety locks were activated on the door Rolen has been charged with kidnapping and murder. His parents spoke to a FOX affiliate denying their son's involvement. I'm sorry. But I came forward to let my son serve time something even do a Sunday nobody in a court hearing, which the alleged murderer did not attend. Joseph says mother delivered this emotional plea. Beginning the right for women to my daughter in the opportunity for anyone out. Smith. Don't ever forget. Shame on you said her name, and you make your statement more about her and less about him. And that's what it needs to be because she's our life. It's really about my daughter, and it's really about that making this that nobody else is going to go through with that. We're going through. All the family does not blame. Uber for Samantha's death. They think that Uber and other rideshare companies could do more to keep passengers safe. All the ride sharing companies out there. They need to do more. They need to. Look at the safety rideshare company lift announced that they're adding new safety features in the wake of Samantha's death, continuous criminal background checks and an enhanced identity verification process. The Josephson's also suggested writes, your company should consider developing Barco technology to match drivers with passengers in. All you have to have a smartphone. In order to did an Uber left. You can put a QR code a barcode on the door. And if if it's that's your ride. It turns green in a statement to ABC news a spokesperson for Uber said our hearts remain with the Josephson family. We're always looking to build on our core. Safety features such as the license plate car making model and driver photo shown in the app prior to the trip the family wants to see legislation change to starting with requiring. All right share cars to have both of front and back license. Plate are one thousand nine hundred eighth that do not have a front license plate and South Carolina hap-. To be one of them. So we're saying to make that mandate. It we've have our children. They grow up we preach them. Don't don't talk to strangers. And what do we do now with the ridesharing? They get into a car with a stranger recently, South Carolina's house of representatives passed a Bill named after Samantha the Bill mandates that win an Uber driver or lift driver or any ridesharing company. When there's a driver working on duty to have to be an illuminated light. Individuals needs to be countable, and they have to look at the license plate. They have to look at the drive. Our family has turned. They're paying into action launching a foundation called what's my name urging passengers to ask drivers who they're picking up before they step into the car. Sammy litter wanted us to do this. Try because it was her goal to help change the world. Yes. Samantha was planning to head to law school in the fall in a full scholarship. She was set to finish up college in South Carolina graduating next month may eleventh is her graduation. What we all do that day? I think it's going to be really difficult day. But we need to go to ourselves. A moment of silence on her. I really wanted to be there for her. Coming up the OJ trial all over again. Former prosecutor says the new TV show isn't repeating history on perspective after this. Hey, I'm Dan Harris from ABC news, and I have a podcast, and you should listen to it. It's called ten percent, happier. It's all about how to stay sane in our increasingly insane world, we talked to everybody from the Dalai Lama signs. Borkum for human, gene. He'll ru Paul you have to explore this life. It's fun and interesting may even change your life. You can listen to it for free on apple podcasts or on your favorite podcast app. Welcome back to perspective. I'm Sherry Preston. A high profile defendant in a murder trial, a gutsy lead prosecutor and a media circus. The plot of the new ABC TV show, the fix was co created by former OJ Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark now, it might sound like it's repeating history for some. But she says otherwise her more, here's ABC's, bath gut. Mun had been convicted would your life have been different. How to answer that question? How could I know if he had been convicted, maybe I wouldn't have left the office. But maybe I would have looking back. You know, I really do think it was time in my life to do something different for care to decide who murdered Ronald Goldman and Nicole Pratt each nineteen ninety-five and Marcia Clark is front and center at the trial of the century. We do have sufficient evidence to convict him and prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The lead prosecutor in the case against retired football legend or thal James Simpson for the bird. Title of his ex wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and one golden in a trial closely watched by tens of millions of people around the country, he had to call at this incredibly violent relationship and on the particular day in question. Many many things went wrong for him off the same time. And then he exploded which is why we wound up with so much evidence, but evidence or not Clark inner team would become infamous one of the worst trial losses in history. If it doesn't fit you must acquit after OJ was acquitted Clark left her trial law career behind setting off in a path to redefine herself as an author of bestselling novels. I always loved to write from the time. I was a kid. I loved writing I was always addicted to crime fiction always which is why I wrote novels network crime fiction at now her latest venture. Res- co creator of ABC's new legal drama, the fix how much of the beginning of this story is your origin story. Well about this much you when you get about three minutes into the show, then we depart completely. So to the extent that it's a prosecutor in Los Angeles who lost a high profile murder case and let the DA's office that part came out of my life. He lost. So what? Now, you want revenge. You hate me for not suffering enough. Is that it believe me laugh? His impersonal mister Johnson never has been Robin Tunney stars. As Maya Travis a former prosecutor who loses a high profile case against a celebrity actor named sivy Johnson only to come back for a second chance years later with the actors accused of killing his new girlfriend. What are you doing here? He did it again you have to come back. My hat. This time we're gonna get him. Clark insists the fix is not a revisionist tale of revenge. Orenthal James Simpson not guilty of the crime of murder and gets do J Simpson for that. None guilty verdict per ground the world, Nicole Brown show is not you. But it's you wish certainly it draws on my experiences as a defense attorney as well as a prosecutor. So is it complete fantasy? Yes. I mean, this all fiction it really is all fiction, we even even the sevi- Johnston. Although he's African American he is British. He's a movie star. He's not a football player, and he'll you'll see through the course of very complex character, very compelling character. And all the characters have an arc that they go through. It's my fantasy in terms of getting to write a project like this for sure. This is about Justice and seeing the Justice is done. But no matter what it seems more than two decades later. The OJ case continues to follow her. Spawning ain't hit miniseries. The people vs OJ Simpson. And in Academy Award winning documentary OJ made in America. I learned a lot more about him in terms of his ability to perform when I saw OJ in America. But seeing it in in so much detail showed me he really knows how to put on an incredibly engaging in warm persona that is not the persona. I saw in court. I can't talk to you without your attorney present. But unlike Maya and the show Marsha in real life is perfectly fine with life outside the courtroom. If OJ Simpson ever did anything again, it was horrific or heinous what you jump back in. I wouldn't be able to jump back in. There's a bit of fantastic. Listen, the way Maya comes roaring back in rolling back in and just resumes, and that's not particularly realistic. And they have a lot of really good prosecutors. They don't need me. I'm Matt gut Mun moss Angeles. Coming up combatting addiction with music. Voda treatment centers unique approach to facing the disease on perspective after this have a dream. But don't know where to begin. I didn't want be limited looking for wisdom for women who've already been there, you will constantly be given the opportunity to lose yourself. Welcome to ABC's. No limits. I'm your host, Rebecca Jarvis. And each week. We're talking to the game changing women about success lessons learned along the way. And of course, the worst advice and really thought about this worst advice ever, you can hear new episodes of no limits every week on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app. This is perspective. From ABC news. I'm Sherry Preston, overcoming addiction. It's something that continues to come up in the midst of this country's opioid crisis. There are thousands of treatment centers throughout the country ABC's. Daria Albinger, recently spoke with a co founder of one at quartered in Florida. It's called recovery unplugged. The founder's name is all Pellicer. He discusses the way his music based treatment center combats addiction recovery is a treatment center that combat's mental illness and addiction with locations all over the country that uses music as a catalyst to engage the clients in their long term recovery you once dealt with addiction didn't yes, I'm in recovery and music has always been my companion. If that makes sense, but also as a clinician who's been in the industry since one thousand nine hundred nine I started using music in my groups and individual sessions and found that not only did. I get a better response from the clients. But they were also able to retain the information that I was teaching him. Now, I would imagine that music therapy is not something that is new what sets what you do apart from other programs. The first thing is it's not music therapy. We use music and everything associated with music from the lyrics to the vibration of music to live performances to songs to not only establish report with the clients. Engage the clients and help them practice. The necessary skill sets needed for long term recovery. But also as I've already mentioned help them, retain, those behaviors need it for long term recovery. When you mentioned that you use every part of music in your program there, including lyrics. I I thought of was a Lear Chroma song Kentucky back instantly shirt to a certain point in my life. That goaty a good thing. But some lyrics to certain songs, which take me back to. Points in my life that I do not want to go back to couldn't that be detrimental to somebody in recovery. Great question. You obviously have some wisdom and insight into this. So let's talk about that for a second. If you think about drug addiction drugs, really a symptom of the problem. So if that statement is true, then what would be the problem? It's poor coping skills negative behaviors low self esteem distorted perceptions, blah, blah, blah, right? And so what music can do whether good bad or not is can be a it could be a catalyst to let go of some of those painful memories, inspire somebody motivate them help put them in the present. It's very thorny. There's no communication that communicates to the soul like music does. And that in my humble opinion is where long lasting change happens. So let's take for instance, a song that could be associated with drug use. What comes to mind for me is Pink Floyd come to bleed. And so now what we can do is. We can analyze the lyrics of the song in a safe setting reframe it to so now it becomes associated with the serenity of being clean reframing behavior. Reframing a thought a perception, we can even had allies, you know, the lyric. I guess the other thing that comes to mind is if music is so cathartic, and if it can help somebody live a clean lifestyle, why are there so many musicians who struggle with abuse one of the reasons is because like as I've spoken to musicians some legendary ones who thought that they got their creative flow for lack of a better phrase from using drugs. As a matter of fact, I recently spoke to a member of a major classic rock and roll band who got cleaned thirty years ago, by the way and told me that he thought his singing songwriting days were over once he got clean because he didn't know. How to do it coupled with the environment? Let's think about it. And we go to concerts, we go to shows a lot of people are getting high there, you know, what's going on back stage. If you've ever been to some of these shows, so that the culture back in the day and even president is encouraging of drug and alcohol abuse what I'm grateful for now is is there's a lot of major stars in legendary musicians who are now in recovery who are now openly talking about their clean and sober. And they're better at what they do in their life is better, and they're raising awareness and changing the stigma. Now, you guys have locations all over the country. We have all levels of care from detox to residential too impatient. To outpatient services to housing we have locations in lake worth Florida Fort Lauderdale, Florida Austin, Texas, Allendale Virginia, which is northern Virginia. Where soon opening up in Nashville and who knows? Where we go from there. I am so excited not only about our success rates. But I really feel as someone who's been in the industry since one thousand nine hundred eighty nine that I'm truly making a difference from ABC news. This has been perspective.

Episode 60: Living Minimal (with Samantha Josaphat)
"Sir. Hey there. It's joy Marie and Courtney. Welcome back. We're back with a new episode of child logs or candid career conversations with your group chat girlfriend. That's right. And coming up. We have a great episode for you with Samantha Joseph that an architect of the founder of studio three nine seven architecture. So she's going to give us an insight look and making it in the world of architecture, and how to bring the power of focus and minimalism to our lives. Yes. Definitely a great conversation. But I you guys know we like to start every episode with a clock in this is a segment of the show where we check it on each other. We catch up on what's going on in the world, politics business, more and encourage you to do the same with your group. Check girlfriends, Courtney, how are you? What's going on good? There's a lot happening. I always say like, I've you life peaks and valleys, and I do feel like in a valley situation. It's just the challenges happening. And it's interesting because I think this year has kind of been my Picquier like twenty weather world is burning. I was just like. Everything is fabulous. And I was wondering where like this valley was gonna come from. Because I was gonna come. So. So it's a Rives. But I'm kind kinda impressed with how I'm viewing. Like, it's a reminder that challenging times are win. You learn those lessons in when you have that growth is like you don't better than happen when everything's hunky Dory. Yeah. It's like a necessary way. Way of life and just kind of leave a real for like, you know, miracles to happen whatever you're just like four that higher pyre step in getting your faith, strong and just being able to look outside myself. You know bouncing that faith with like that cautious like lemme vet. Let me make sure every step of the way is cool. And yeah, like having ownership over what you can control. But then come through under man. Oh, well, I hope you know, you're able to work through that at some point. The upside is that we know they don't it doesn't last forever. The val. That's right. They can be rough. So is on the prize because I'm claiming right now like kid married in the spring, and we of this. Yes, I'm where they care about you. I could I'm good. I would say I had a pretty neutral year when Cali there like peak or a valley. But you know, I think it's it was really a self. Reflective introspective as you all know. And I think there've been a few key things that I'm walking away from as we're wrapping up there. One is really just lake how we speak over our lives impacts. What we see which I believe impacts our future as well. It's something I've heard said from speakers, I admire, but to that end, I'm just giving a lot less airtime to complaining to comparison must not to negate that I feel things and impacted by things people do to me or things that he I even might do to myself. But. I just think like choosing not to make that the center of my relationships or make like misery, the focal point of my conversations with friends has been very intentional because that's not what I wanna manifest very hard to do in New York. I think. Good. Yeah. I feel like you know, that's kind of for this next season. That's kind of not what I want to take with me. So I'm trying to give it a little less life. You know, I took a little bit of a haggis from social media just been a few weeks at the time. We're recording the Sepah sewed, but planning to go strong till the new year that's been really refreshing and like a necessary reset because I do personally spend a ton of time on Instagram in particular. So I've been as an introvert I've been and don't debate me I've been refocused. Outset that energy on if I think about somebody. Let me hit him a shoot them FaceTime or asked them to do coffee. So we can actually catch up versus kind of passively engaging with my friends, you know, so that's been kind of fun. Reading more just like doing three configuring my morning routine. Try to be more intentional about my time. So how are you feeling with this new this new lo fi life? It's been really great. It's been very good. I feel like I am starting to set myself up for new like my New Year's resolutions. Really great because I've just I'm starting to basically act on all the areas, I want to prioritize resolution, so you know, I think a lot has shifted in me. And I think I've changed but this year, and even though my circumstances fluctuate, I feel really grounded. So I'm very grateful for that. Wonderful. That's like the perfect way to go onto new year. Yeah. I think so let's get into the Shiites. Now, do it. All right now, it's time for rancher is reviews. This is the segment of the show where we highlight product services, tools or experiences that we're currently loving or hating in our professional lives. Courtney you're up what are you doing today? I am raving. I think we've we've talked about this a few times on this show before, but it's really coming to life for me in that accountability partners. I am trying to get in shape for the wedding, and is just the ban of my existence. Like, I just hated so much. They need. It doesn't like they're few things that I hate more than working out and thinking about what I eat. So I've been kind of stagnant. I feel like I've been engaged for since the March and of thinking about this since March, and I've been progressing about it since March. Or down to the wire. Now, I'm starting to like be a little bit better about it. And I think it's completely because people holding me accountable so shoutout to Aaron for bring her craze workout lifestyle. She killed me almost one, but I forgive her is necessary. Shout out to my fiance for like sending me threatening text messages that I asked him to send me like a right around like that my clock hit me up. Like, what are you doing lazy bum guzzling? Listen, whatever works never work. We just like try at least me, I'm not a very disciplined person. I never use that as a agit for myself or just so having a community of people. It's like support you share things with that. You wanna -ccomplish? It's just it makes it so much easier. That's great. I love that show and all the little people like sharing their fitness during Instagram not so much you like rising grind people who are just like very aspirational unattainable. But the people who are like, oh my God. I hate this. But I'm going. I'm your try really love this trend on stories of people tagging their friends and their morning workout to like you tag like five people in the may workout and they'd take five. I love that. It's like friendly peer pressure. Okay. Of it. Okay. Joy. What are you doing in a very similar vein? And I took a peek at your. So I really I wanna shout out people doing the self work Ling people really really doing self work. Shout outs to my accountability partner. You Norian good friend. We have weekly conversations for hours on end about this. And really like what comes out of those is that real self Karen self love is painful. It's like it's really about taking a mirror to yourself looking at your flaws and weaknesses and recognizing your own role and the role that your choices have played in your own circumstances. And that's not to negate the life that you might have lived in the pain that you might have experienced. But like I feel like it's really about what you can do and what you can own and that's tough. That's a can be really really rough. But I feel like what that does is make for it sets you up for better relationships in work, better communication, better partnerships romance. Cly? You know, a helps you to see habits behaviors that aren't serving you in order to clear room for the things that can help you better align with your purpose. So just shut out to everyone. That's doing that. Because it's it's hard. It's intentional. And it doesn't happen by accidentally people don't just like wake up in their, you know, happy people that communicate. Well, and you know, our forgiving that all takes work to kind of undo things that maybe have made you not like that. And I can always tell people who aren't doing the work because it's like an I'm able to extend more grease to them now. Because I'm like if you're snippy at work for no reason, that's because you got some healing. I'm forgive you for snapping it now because I am volved. But you know, it helps you to be able to see when other people are maybe like still working through that stuff right journey. Yeah. I love that. I think the that reminds me of a I love forgot. Who said it? But basically idea that happiness is a choice, and like it's never just natural state like have to choose to do it. So. Yeah. Anything especially still. So we have a treat for you. All this week. We have Samantha Josefa in the studio. Samantha hello. So I wanted to come in because one I've never met black few architects, maybe there, and I wasn't surprised when she sent over your bio Samantha is architect and the founder of studio three nine seven architecture part of a mere point three percent of black female architects registered in the United States. It was a point before three percent. She is the three hundred ninety seven living black female architect to be licensed. That is crazy to where it's like smaller than high school graduating class sometimes. Yeah. Bunkers, so she has experienced in corporate interiors residential, retail, transportation and recreational architecture, and by building herself available network of resources. Continues to shape path to a more, minimal and sustainable future. She's also the president elect of New York's chapter of national organization of minority architects and this past March some of her work was exhibited at the United Nations visitor center as part of an issue to champion diversity. And she also currently has work on display at New York City's center for architecture as a finalist for the time square Valentine heart designed compensation competition, so an architect with a sleigh. We love. Hollick so impressive. That's insane. Yet. It's crazy chart hearing my bio like oh, right. What is to be like a unicorn? Because sometimes I don't feel like a unicorn I'm actually surrounding myself around other unicorns. So it's like I'm kinda used to being a go getter because everyone around me ago getter, and it's so weird. What I hear people say like, you're the first black architect, I know or black female architect because I'm like, they're everywhere. They're so many of us. But it's because I'm so used to network and we encourage each other so much and we like self promote each other and stuff like that. And so I get so used to being around them that I forget where he's yeah. A unicorn outta the entire you know. Yeah. Operation hopeless conversation opens someone more exposure to who's listening anyone interested in architecture. Anyone in architecture right now anyone questioning whether they should stay in. We're gonna get into it. And I think one of the big things I've been wanting to talk about on the show to is to bring the one who has a lot of experience in design and design thinking, I think that process limits of a lot to just no matter your field life in general, personal professional just about how to have that focus that you need. Yeah. I think Clinton agree with that. Because I did study more graphic and digital design in school. And I just feel like especially like what space like something around organizing space organising objects. That does translate to me. So organizing information organizing projects exactly being process-oriented. Exactly. Like, I find myself designing any and everything like I look at a sign on the street and relate they should've put the person in the dog. The top rate side or I could just be in a space. Like, I was you know, inherent. I was looking for the windows and certain things it was just like, oh, I wonder what part of the building. Are we in interesting uh? So before we dive into that design thinking conversation, tell us a little bit about what goes into being architect. 'cause I feel like we think we know probably man where do I begin? Let's just begin when you're in high school trying to decide if you wanna be on architecture. Not when you're looking to apply to schools know that you have to apply to the architecture program. That was my first mistake I made because I thought oh once I get to college. I could choose my major when I'm a sophomore because that's what I was always told, and I got to college, and I was telling everybody. Yeah. Architect major. And then the counselor was like, no, you're not. Yeah. I was just like what do you mean? And she's just like there's architecture program. Like, oh, okay. I thought I had to buy the books I had to apply to the architecture program and because it's such a rigorous program. It's a five year program that only starts in the fall semester. So I had to ply to the program submit a portfolio, get accepted and then start the following fall. But even just that process was like a life lesson in it. So I I got a rejection letter, and I was just like dang. I didn't get into the architecture program. And soy I went to the school at engineering, and they were totalling about all the different engineering majors. And I was just like it's just not clicking. And so then I went to someone in the architecture program that I knew and I was like I didn't get into the architecture program. And he was just like what are you talking about you did? And I was like, no, I didn't I got the rejection letter, and he happened to call the I think it was the dean of architecture program at the time. And as he's on the phone with him. He was like, yes, she's in the program. And I was just standing there like. What in the world? I started freaking out like oh. And so it was just crazy because because I was so persistent, and I was kinda determined to figure something out whether I was going to get into the architecture program or not me being able to follow up actually gotten the result that I actually wanted to word. That was my first lesson on persistence and following. Yeah. And what kind of kept us through that. Because I love to hear a little bit about the rigor of that program. And maybe even you know, I'm not familiar at all after the program anything that you had to kind of get to get that are are. So while I was in the five year program, it was pretty tough because one I entered school. And at the time I was coming from Georgia going to school up north. And so like that was a culture shock, and then like everyone in my program that was a culture shock like I just felt like I was completely different. And so like between like, you know, communicating with my colleagues or trying to communicate with the professors like everything was alerting lesson. And then I had to learn architecture on top of that I had to teach my grandmother how to pronounce architecture. Lesson after lesson. And so that was a five year program and the way I focused was I put on my headphones, and I put my music on blast liking like I was like so focus when I was like, you know, working on my projects, and I know sometimes I people because they could hear my reggae from. But I did build a friendship with my classmates because we saw each other for so long like every day we saw each other for five days straight. You know, one of our classes where like four hour, long classes, and then even after the class we have to still stay in studio like do work. And so you kinda wanna have a relationship with your classmates, sometimes it's hard again because it's a culture clash, but eventually you get through that. But another thing that I did was I got involved with other student organizations outside of the architecture program because you know, in my class, it was only two black people with you one other girl. And so I felt like I needed a sense of home in community that looked like me at that understood my background so that I didn't always feel like outcasts. And so I joined student organizations to get to know other classmates one thing that did work for me because I was a change of major student, and I had that first year of not being in architecture. Program. I made friends a lot of times my classmates all they knew were, you know, our class our class. And so I was I guess fortunate enough to build friendships before I even got into the program. So they will you know, pull me out every so often. Yeah. So it was really interesting. We told me before how I after you do this five year program that you're doing if not done you're still not like, and I like. Your program. Okay. Now, I gotta find a job along with trying to find a job you have to think about okay, if I'm going to go through with architecture. Do I wanna become a license architect because being a licensed architect, you could either go out go out on your own or you can you know, move up the corporate ladder eventually in order to sit for your license. You either have to a graduate from an accredited five year program or graduate from an accredited master's program or get grandfathered in by like working under other architects, I certain amount of years. And so once you you checked one of those boxes, you also have to gain a professional experience or nor to sit for your exams, and so usually that's like a two three year process, but thankfully, in New York state, they allow you to gain those credits while taking your exams, and so I took advantage of that. Because my student loans was out the roof. And so I was just like can't afford grad school, I need to get. This experience. And so what I did was I went out, and I started working in the professional world. And I just right away. Started studying for my exams the first exam. I took it was actually not former architecture license. It was just a sustainability certification. And I just wanted to take that test to be like somewhat of a tester on like test. Taking and stumbling that I got to know the pro metric center, and I will never go to that place ever. Yeah. It's they have a couple offices in New York City where people take like there. I think I don't know if they take Berg's, but I know they take their CPA exams there and like all these other random exams, and so yeah. Basically at the game professional experience and get license and it's not just one test. It's seven different when I was taking was seven different tests. I think it's six tests now. Yeah. So as you say, this is just strikes me that like you have to be so focused admitted to one thing so long, and I feel like going to college. It's like people are like dip in and out of majors. Like how? How are you? Like, did you ever have temptation to like want to try something else or you're just like I'm in it, some going to fit like woods, the I think I was so caught up with all the work that I had to do there. I didn't even have to. If I think about trying to change my major I'm gonna fail this class because deadline is in two days. And like every week we had a big project doing like the requirements in these projects like you'll these professors are like they're insane. Like, this is not possible. And I mean, sometimes you would check things off everything off the listen, sometimes you wouldn't. But like what they would want you to produce in a Wiki just be like, what planet are you living on? Yeah. I guess. Yeah. It was funny because I was thinking the same thing as you were speaking because I feel like we haven't really had a lot of folks on this show who do have to be that prescriptive in their pass, whether that's medical or. Or even law. And I just like, you know, I admire it so number one kudos to you. Man. I married now. But before I was just like, I don't screwed. You made it you're here. But I mean, I'd love to know like in balance with like technical like focus and getting through the work. What kind of what inspired you, and drew you to their profession overall? And, you know, even when you look at culture like what inspires you, what are the influences and the influence of architecture that you know, as inspiring you and motivating you to kind of make your contribution to the field. It's funny because when people ask me this, I usually hear other architects say all these fancy elaborate explanations. M I explanation is very simple. My mom, we moved to Georgia and we're living in apartments for couple years. And then we're able to well she was able to purchase a house. And so we were going house hunting and out of me and my other sisters. I was always the one going house hunting with my mom. And so every time we stepped in to a house. I was just like why would someone do this? Why was that doesn't make sense? I was just like I got I got a design spaces or whatever because I know how to figure this out or whatever. And then like while I was in school. I realized I actually been designing all my life. But I didn't realize I was designing again, like I'd be in the car, you know, dropping my grandmother off to work with my grandfather. And I'm like looking at everything outside of the car window, just like reimagining in a different way. It was like I said not until like halfway through school. I realize like, oh, I ve been designing for the longest. And so the reason why I say like, oh, this is a simple answer. And it's not elaborate because you know, architectures such an elite profession that like most people that know about architecture are exposed to it. And so like, those say like, oh, I knew this architect growing up or you know, I've heard about, you know, this famous architect, and it's just like, no, I didn't know any of that. Like, I barely even your how to pronounce architecture. It was just a simple like I figured like why can't I redesign something? And I don't even know like I I didn't even say the word architecture. I remember going through a professor saying I wanted to find buildings. I didn't even know it was called architecture. She had mentioned to me take this three drafting class. And so I took that one three D drafting class in high school. And she also told me when you start the architecture program tried to join a sorority because it's a. Predominantly white mill profession. I didn't even time to join us too. Wordy? What I say like I was like screw like barely making it through the program. But I was making all I just needed to make it when graduation came like, my whole entire family came like it was so funny because like, you know, everyone's graduating, and it's like everyone two or three people in twenty people. Because they. Yourself described minimalist. You can't get you. Very chic varies. So what is the benefit? That's like a less as more approach. Yes. So what is the benefit I guess of doing less in a world that encourages us to do the most everyone expected to do all the things. But you'd like I mean, even I guess, that's your style. But also eight your life you'd like focus on. Yeah. This thing because I always wanted to be efficient because it costs more not to be officiant. Ed, man. I didn't. I didn't have the money to like do all this again. It's it's so weird. Because like when I look at how I am now. And look back to like have I always been like this. I realize like I've been practicing minimum since the longest or whatever like for when we were in college like everyone was always running to Starbucks, and I was like Audrey Gordon daughter because. Or whatever. And I would say like growing up everyone always was like, oh, I wanna mansion I want this. Like, look, I need a simple, you know, small unit a condo. I was say condo. 'cause I did want own because I'd won't have to have as cleaning products. It will have to spend so much time on cleaning. So I'm always like connecting activity, or, you know, purchase to like just downsizing on the amount of work that I have again being officiant. And so. I apply that to everything professionally, and you know, how I how I go about my personal life. But being able to focus allowed me to be minimalist in my like and how I socialize with people. Like, I was just like, okay. Like, I got my circle of friends, and I could only see them like can't see anybody else. Like, no new friends was like four. I was just like I'll catch you five years because I really can't. So how do you like apply that whether it's like in when you're designing a building or kind of designing your career? How do you choose like what stays what goes? Oh that takes time like whether it's like interior designing you're looking at materials like sometimes I have like a lot of materials in front of me. And then like a walk away and come back just to say, okay. Like, what can I lose like United take things I take things out of the mix slowly? But I try to throw in like all of my ideas. And then I say like, you know, I try to have higher to them and say what's more important than the next. So that's how I approach it with design, but also with architecture just with like building systems in particular and a lot of architects are taken this route. But like trying to build more passively where it's like, okay, we're in New York. The sun rises in the east your windows. Owes like if like all the activities, you would do in the evening, you would want on the west side because that's where the sun is setting. All your activities. You would do in the morning, you would want on the east side because that's where the sun is rising. And so you use less artificial lighting because you could use, you know, the sun also like just the type of glazing you use or the type of windows you have in a building. Like, it allows you to allows for light to transmit into the space, but not the heat, and so the air cool, and like if you're in the Caribbean or the desert like you kind of place these openings in the wall in a particular way to allow breeze to come in. Don't see unit or a heater and stuff about solving problems. Like, yeah. But what I do like about like being sustainable architecture. You could teach to people who aren't architect, and like I feel like everyone could be architect. Yeah. Yes. You have to have all these certifications in like, the states, or you know, other countries, but you can still architect your life architect, the space, you live in and work with architect architect to say like, okay. This is how I move around my space. I know I need these particular materials is just like, it's weird like architecture sounds complicated. When you're looking at a set of drawings. But if you just take a step back, and I have to tell myself this all the time too. But like just actually try to make sense out of it. And not get too technical. You're like, oh, I get it. We're using concrete to store the heat because the places to hug. Yeah. Joy. So I'm hearing prioritizing. Yes. And I'm also hearing working with the things that you can't change rather than trying to force them. Yeah. I mean for a while architects have been trying to design buildings to like keep out the natural world. It's more sustainable to just work with the natural elements. It's less building systems, which means less money. So you've also stepped out on started your own architecture firms. I love to hear a little bit about kind of what inspired that. And I think also just what your hopes are for the future of the industry. I mean being the three hundred ninety seven are black woman architect period. But then, you know, as a black woman to step into that role. You know, what you're hopeful for and what you're excited about I loved hearing, you speak about access, and I love to hear you just be encouraging and say like it's something that people can have a role in and have a part. And even if they're not necessarily like certified. So what what you know, what excites you, what do you want to kind of see in the future? So. So I felt stifled which is why decided to go out on my own. I just felt like I couldn't do all that. I know I am as a person. And I've always been a go getter. I have always been in a position where I've been trying to like delegate to allow other people to become who they wanna be. And I felt like while I was in corporate like I was always at the bottom. And I understand like, you know, I was at the beginning of my career. But it just felt like I wasn't going to move at the pace that I needed to for myself or for my community. And so I took the leap of faith to say, you know, what in order to pay off these student loans a little bit faster in order to be this project manager in my life like and have control I'm gonna try something completely different to try and get a different result because I felt like going from job to job I was running into the same issue. And just like if I go to the next job, I'm gonna probably get the same result soliciting something completely different. And at the. Time I had my credentials. So no one could stop me. And so I don't see myself ever going back. And I also want to you know, be that late of inspiration whether someone's staying in corporate or they're going out on their own to just be able to say, I'm gonna take control. Yeah. And that's so heartening to hear the because first of all you put in like five years change, and he did. But to say like, okay, let's let's flip the script. How can we adjust this? We all have these dream jobs times, you get the dream. And it's like man Asya river win job. I was jumping on the bed because I was so happy I got it. And then I was balling to get out. Like it was. So I learned my lesson. They'll get through to. I also I wanna hear kinda your take on the influences architecture design in mainstream culture too. Like, I think about, you know, salons tour with yet at the table back in twenty seven hundred twenty two and just kind of you see those influences on her style. But also like the set design. Yes, Virgil right now, I'm always looking at like, you know, whether I'm looking at him musician or movie like at the end the credits, I'm always like who's the set designer because I remember one time when I was in college. I would say I want to be in Hollywood. But I'm in architecture major. So how am I going to work this out? And so I would always say like oh do set design, but set design is so particular its own industry. And so a lot of times, you know, architects don't really cross those paths, but I was actually just talking with someone last week about how architects can pay. Play a role in set design, for example, like the set design for Black Panther one of the set design. She's now the production lead or producer. I'm sorry, really know, the the title or whatever, but you know, she going out to Africa to all these different countries. And just looking at the culture and looking at the architecture and having to like, you know, put that in you know, to movie seen it. So it's interesting when I see architecture in music, and in in film because onto feel yes. So I actually just helped out with a company called studio. One eight nine that does that has their garments are made in Ghana. And so like I just wanted to connect with them. And so what I did was I reached out to them for fashion week, and I helped them with producing the show for fashion week. You know, I wasn't looking for like anything in particular. I was just like I want to expose myself to this industry can make that connection. Yeah. And that's another thing that I'm able to do now that I've created that freedom of time for myself to say like, oh, I could put some of my work on hold for a couple of days to help out this company to, you know, learn something outside of my industry. Yeah. Yeah. So it sounds like you're ready to kind of like expand that focus kind of thing. Yes. I focused so much that now I can like expand. Sure. Is there anything that guides you as you kind of have you expand without losing that quality of? Social having still having some sense of focus in the sense of not saying yes to everything because a says black women we love to get excited about a lot of stuff and always trying to help someone out. And so I still have to tell myself sometimes like you can't do this. And sometimes I say, yes. And then after go back to people and saying, I'm so sorry. But like the way my time is set up right now, I can't actually commit to this. And so I tried to do that head of time before like, I get into deep with people, but being able to still expose myself to many different things. I asked myself these questions like how is it helping me as how's it helping studio three nine seven as a firm like Ken? We potentially see this. You know, become something else where studio three nine seven kin. You know, expand their design capabilities or how is this exposing our community to architecture more wool this initiative allow other people to. You know step into these roles. One goal is through your three nine seven is to employ, interns, and employees like architects that look like me that allows us to feel like, you know, we're in a space that we're not the minority. But we're you know, the majority are were just as good. Yeah. Wonderful. All right. So you've shared this amazing career journey with us in resort. Appreciate that. Is there anything you want to impart for someone who's like staring down a similar long Pab whether as architecture or something else like any of ice for staying. The course I definitely say remind your sofa of why you initially got on this path to stay persist to remain persistent and resilient because sometimes when you're in the thick of things, you don't really see the light at the end of the tunnel. And you know, I graduated from high school in two thousand six and I could literally tell you it was into a two thousand seventeen I was like, okay. This is finally working itself. And so it was a long haul. Again, thankfully, like I was too busy to stop myself. But at the same time now, I have so much freedom. And I I wouldn't change my during. You for anything? I also try to tell people to respect the journey because we're always looking for that end result. And we then don't, you know, respect our different stages stages, while you're you know, on that path in, you know, at one point in time like I felt like I was becoming this miserable bidder person. And like it was reflected on how I communicated with my friends how I communicated with my family, and because I was so focused on a result. I couldn't you know, appreciate these certain situations along my path. And you know, now, I'm used to look at people that looked happy. And I would be like, oh, I wonder what that feel that was. On the train. Sometimes like must be nice to be able to sit and smart me mug is somewhat concentrate. And so I encourage people to respect that expect the journey.

So I just I wanted to make I just wanted to make that known that you guys have to let's start making less less really start trying to because it's unfortunate, and there's a tragedy, and it should not have happened that that young girl passed away like that under those circumstances and my my condolences to her family, and if somebody who takes Uber and lift all the time, I. You said he said it was taken. I completely understand. Why this is a sensitive topic? I get an Uber is all the time. And I'm like, I don't even enough things happen to you. Honey. Sometimes I'm been like, I don't know about this guy every now, and then they go down a road. I don't think listen necessary or they start talking about some non I actually have audio. Recording of an Uber driver. The other day. I was trying to record a cars for a Jewish. And he hey chili. And this guy started telling me just out of the blue. He started talking about how good he is it eating pussy as he was driving. Not that's actually creates he'd started. And I have it on audio. And I was recording this commercial because it's an inside joke with my friends. So I started record the commercial, and I got the audio of him being like, and then I spread lips open.

I'm just giving you the Swedish version well because I was getting picking numbers all the time. And I was there. They started. They sort of let me go on. Anyway, you know, so I'm trying to not get kind. No, no. It was nothing white guy with a button up. He looked very normal. He was like I'm going to give up. I didn't want him to. Give up I picked the number. He did not give him a number. He said he wanted to thank me by taking me to dinner. I let him take me to dinner. He gave me a cigarette. We, you know, remember him smoking a cigarette, but he didn't smoke as much as I did. It was laced with something. I would say it was not a heroin. I started nodding out at as I was Notting out. We were right on sunset. He was parked on sunset. I parked my car in the garage didn't want to move it. So we were going to dinner in his car. And he as I was nodding out. He said he wanted to show me something he pulls me up out the car and takes me around to the back of his trunk pops the trunk and shows me all this these no like, tools, and like chainsaws and acts and hammers.

I've been timing. You. Some I in my own head tie big you on this story. And you start a timer for five minutes. Matt. No, I got it. We're at thirteen thirty three. Let me know when five minutes met. That's when I will talk. Again. I haven't done five minutes of silence and two years. Oh my God. You guys carrying the show for five minutes. We were looking at you. You talked about a cigarette. Some Hooker in LA with tools a girl in an Uber girl. I hang up and then MS fabulous asked you a couple of questions. You jump down earn. I thought Wendy you came for her fucking documentary.

But you know, I'm actually I wanna hear YoM YoM is hot take on. Glad you're alive related incident of murder, and I it's not like before getting murdered all over the place copy to Uber. It's like this is a racket. Do you know what this feels like a campaign of fear the likes of which we haven't seen since George did the can't get leading? They're like, you don't need money or like this. Iraqis eleven shit. It's like what Ober you better watch out for ruber should've had him bring you the cross stations.

Chainsaw so much as you chain saw, then you get a nice dinner. And then the other thing is you go to a separate location for dessert because it has can take your murder to the second location. You probably won't get. Because they say always go to the second location for your kid, man. But she should be dead, though, one the kidnapper takes you. They say if you move if he moves you successfully you're gonna die. The hope take you to a second location. He should've said, you gotta dinner. Yeah. But that's 'cause she took the initiative. So this is why I think this is why should products set because like sure to be serious. So this is a good tip. If you're getting -ducted if you take the gun to the second location. You say don't try to help men in comedy. Mitch let them figure in life. And you guys I had to work to get Jackson t that's the lesson. You try to help white boy to become a comic. He's probably not doing that shit. No, more fuck guy. Yeah. Anytime you're nice to a man in general. I swear to Christ. I try on the train and not be a cut and make eye contact smile with people and they pull the Vic on yes. And it's partially as the defense thing to me like you can't rape me. 'cause I'm gonna let you I like oh like trying to make eye contact. I'm also a crazy, right? Yeah. I like, I do a pretty I might kill you. Right. But said is on I make contact with someone staring at me. And then you kind of look, and you smile they instantly than dude things. It's like, oh, she was nice to me. I'm with me. Yes. And they will it's so it's a nightmare. You can't be nice to men, and I stand by what I put on Instagram Kenner track. Because so here's here's the thing. Right now, you all can't see your face 'cause she's broadcasting he left he left but on her face. You can see that she's making her shopping list for her trunk right in her head.

Don't hide the beetle juice buzzard as demon that you all okay. This queue. That's why he works. Cute. But he's a demon that let me get back to what I was saying. When you are in trouble, and I have been in trouble. More times than I would like to admit because I am unfortunately, friendly is I suggested that we go to get chili cheese fries because it made sense. I'm a big girl that I would want food, and he wouldn't question it, and I just hope know, we're sledding. Would you be like let me suck a dick? I I'm saying, okay. That's it or as a gay personnel. It'd be like let me do not. You know, what I'm saying is for me, the quickest thing for me to think that would not raise any alerts with him is that I'm hungry. Now. Let's go get some chili cheese fries. And then we can do whatever. The fuck you want that I'm down. I didn't wanna make him think I wasn't down. But I needed to do something before we you know, it was a risk. I had to take I was already in a risky situation. When he took me up they had to think quick because I'm nodding out, and I don't have the time. So. I'm like anything I can get away from him. Because even the guys that knew me from Carney's behind the grill. They just thought I was looking up with this nigger they giving high fives. And and it's like, and they don't know that I'm screaming out for help. So I'm on my own. Yes. I get outside to go to the bathroom that he thinks is right there because thank God. He don't know Carney's, and he don't know that the to get to the bathroom. You gotta go downstairs to go back up to these days. When I go down, I'm walking trying to get to at the time, the coffee bean was there and all the comics hung out the coffee bean, so when I get to the call now on now by the I'm so drugged up that I'm walking into the street. Another white guy comes and pulls me out of the streets. And he's like, what are you doing? And I said, no, no, no, no. I get it because I'm scared of white guys at this point because white guy getting ready come and get me. I said I gotta get the fuck outta here. And he's like where you going. I said I didn't want to tell him. I was scared to tell him. I said he says, well, you can't you're walking in the street who who's here for you. And I said just there's some comics. I said, I'm. A comic. Can you take me to the comic sitting here? And I didn't know any of the comics like that. And that's how I met my friends Zorba Zorba Gerard. I met him for the first time, and we met there. He saved my fucking life. I said to him now, I'm a young kid. I'm like nineteen years old. They think I'm some idiot. You know, because they know you come to the monks with my mama, mama. Take me up to search on Sundays. And we would go together. It my first time going without my mother. Mommy. She was out of town. It was my first my first time going by myself. She gave me money to park she parking garage. I don't want you on the streets. Like all these things. My mother was doing to keep me safe. I mean. Because you don't think of the woman that you can get hurt. It's serious. I know, you know, by mom told me not to she's like don't go park on the street. I'm giving you money to go into, you know, a parking garage. Don't risk your life and somebody that I trusted. I don't notice guy. Just look good. You know, not look good, but he looked normal and he wants to fucking kill me. And I'm trying everything worked in my favor that day for some people. It don't it worked in my favor that God took everything and let me go step by step to some type of safety. And even when I got to the comedy store like when I got right before like the coffee bean, the people whispering about me. Oh, she's this on drugs. Something's wrong with her and I had to grab Zorba. And I I've seen you, please. There's going to be a man with chili cheese fries coming to kill me. I know that sounds Larry's. But that's what I said. I said this is a guy he's come with chili cheese fries. He's gonna kill. Me here. He's wants to kill me an airline all she's just drunk. She's high, and it wasn't until that motherfucker walked up, and he has something in a foil tent. And they and Zorba was like what is that in there? And he was like I got her chili cheese fries. And everybody went to try to stop this niggers lights out 'cause they knew then that oh, this all makes sense was going on and whatever he gave me I was high for six or seven hours. Yeah. And at one point I I remember going to the hotel next door to the comedy store, and we had calling cards back then and I call my mother in a drunken stupor that my mother was concerned. And this is when you would call peoples voicemails leave messages because we couldn't we didn't have all the cell phone all that. And she kept saying call me back coming back, and we didn't know how it's going to get home. I'd to call my girlfriend. It was a mess. They thought he's going to take me to the hospital. And then the next week. He comes back. To do his spot. I was gonna ask you if you would hate back. Did he say anything to you? He the same anything that Zobeir to stop me from going up to just let him go. Let him do his thing in we never want to see him again. And when he after he got off stage. I went up to him. I said, I don't know what the fuck I sit on what you what you gave me you gave me some high. I said how many girls have you killed because I know he's killed girls. And he looked me dead. In is said, you'll never know. And I come over my body that deal women he has done this to. So when we talk about this younger on this. Uber shit his credit Israel, you know, sometimes you don't get to make it out of the sting people die in 'cause some reckless bullshit. Right. And that's shit the mount of suffering. It's not just her. I mean, I'm telling you do I notice grow. No. But I could have been this girl. And I get all excuse me. All choked up I given Cavs all hours of the night. I get home and four I am here or LA almost every day. So whether in my own car and Uber a strange last night, I got in a random cab because I didn't have enough money for an Uber. My county more got along with the grand concours went upstairs. I had cash I got a cab. But it didn't have any kind of certification all schools ails ninety seven again. I got some random cabins shit. I'm okay, I get an constant strangers cars daily. So this shit is real. It's real. Yeah. That's I have win the taxi cab. When I first moved here. The same kind of thing this guy were driving, and he's like pretty girl like you shouldn't be by yourself at night, and I just moved to New York from LA. And then I realized he starts driving a radically. And then he's like just starts complaining about his life. And now he needs a woman to this go fishing with and I was like, oh, this is a crazy person. And then he was like driving all over the place. And I and I was like, oh, we're Where'd you like you went the wrong way. I'm like, and I was lost in the elections because I just moved here. And I was like fuck that's going to be an extra ten bucks. And he goes don't worry any shut the meter off. He's like, I'm charge you anyway. And I was like on remember thinking I'm going to get killed. Yeah. Yeah. I've had the same thought. And so I did the same thing of why was like, you know, what I can really go for a drink. You want to get a drink because I'm an alcoholic. So I was like, oh, it's probable that. I would to go get a drink. Yeah. So we stopped at a place on ditmars right before thirty first at a bar right there. And I was like let's get a drink. Let me buy you drink because I had to try to calm him down. It's the same kind of thing. Get away it is fucked up as a woman that when you. You have someone trying to attack you and come out you and your threatened, and I've been like not to pry, but I've been raped by two guys, and I was assaulted by my fucking laundry guy that I know his whole family the day after Christmas in my apartment, an older Asian guy, and I know his wife and his daughter, and he just like grabbed money, and then and like, but are instead of people being like, why don't you fight back? It's like narrow because getaway you try to be nice. So that your let me let me down. So you don't hurt me? Try to like women trae thank your into it. Then you can figure out how to get away. So I did the same thing. I went into this bar, and I was like, let's get a drink. And I and I violated the stripper trick where I got just like a seltzer water and got him. I was like give him a double fucking, whatever. And. Give him some on rock. Yeah. I need to get the fuck outta here. You have any bleeds to call episode sign on the Ron Ron Ron pitcher, please pitcher, he'll take a double window. And I have the mccraw rocks. And I had to sneak out. I ran out. I gave I was like you put money in the jukebox, and he went to go put money in.

Make Mondays better because the view is live too close for comfort the former vice president response to allegations of inappropriate touching. I helped powerless. I felt like I could move. I I just didn't even know how to process it who this derailed his presidential run before it begins creator and star of insecure e suray and blackish star Marseille Martin talk about joining forces in the huge new comedy, led all and spring into a brand new view your deal here come hot topics with Whoopie. I'll be huntsmen joy Behar sunny hostile and Meghan McCain. Now, let's get things started. What what are we can? It's been the my goodness. You know, Joe Biden's presidential campaign hasn't even fishery begun and people are trying to knock them out of the running woman Vanna politician Lucy Flora's claims that Biden was out of line when he campaigned for her back in twenty four teen take a look out of nowhere. I feel Joe Biden put his hands on my shoulders, get up very close to me from behind lean in smell, my hair. And then plant a slow kiss on the top of my head to have the vice president of the United States do that to me so unexpectedly and just kind of out of nowhere. It was just shocking. The reason why we're having these conversations about vice president Joe Biden is because he's considering running for president. So now Biden responded that in all his years on the campaign trail never. Believe he's acted inappropriately. So he'll listen respectfully Flora's when it was never his intention. Now. Should she have spoken to him about this before she went on television about it or I mean is it, you know, listen in the old days, we would call Joe some folks of a certain age would say, he's a little overly familiar. Okay. But most politicians when they're doing this with you. And they are and Joe is Joe is a hands on kinda guy. Yeah. What no one? I've never heard anyone. And she says she felt violated, and I have to take her out a word, but it would have been nice if she had turned him and say, you know, what Jay I'll really like this to please don't do this or not missing vice president. I'm not really comfortable with that something 'cause he's standing right there, though, it's hard to say to somebody who's somebody touches, you inappropriately. But it wasn't. That's the point. I didn't we. Does not say it rises the level of sexual assault or anything of that nature. She does not claim mrS immune to moment. So I think we need to be very clear on that. Because I think some people are interpreting it. Well, that's the point. That's the point is to get people to think about it like that it does not rise to any of those. No, it's a long way from smelling your hair to grabbing your who Har. I mean, let's tell the. But she's annoyed. And so we have to that. But I don't think it rises to two point. We've been listening to about Harvey Weinstein and the rest of these people it just doesn't look like that. And you know, we don't know Joe Biden his been here. I remember when I met him in Florida before he was vice president, and he was so friendly. He's the close talker. He comes right up facing thinking. I hope my breath is good. You know? More important. I hope his. Yeah. And you know, so he talks close. He touches what he's like, I feel it would be really unfortunate. If we got rid of everybody who was just an affectionate kind of person. Those are nice people to he's also been in public office for about fifty years of his life. I do wonder if she could have sent him a letter, right? Like cinema personal note to say, hey, this happened a few years ago. Now, I feel confident and telling you about it. I don't wanna make this public. I always wonder when these things come out. What is the motive for this person? Is it is it simply to let people know uncomfortable, which you could have done in private or is it because you maybe want someone else to win. And you want him to have doubts about actually announcing presidency. I've had concerns about the me too movement from the beginning about getting to this place where you can't have normal interactions with each other that is to say like this one was comfortable, and that's her place. But are we going to get to a place? We can't shake hands. We can't hug each other. Because that to me was uncomfortable. I worry about that. I do. I'm sort of in the middle on this in the sense that I do believe that with this particular situation. There was a power dynamic. You're talking about the vice president of the United States. He was running. I think for tenant governor. So she may not want to want to have offended him. And I know a lot of women get put in that kind of situation where they're offended they're uncomfortable. But they may not say anything. So that's that's one thing. But I do appreciate his response to the criticism. He said, I may not recall these moments the same way, and I may be surprised at what I hear. But we have arrived at an important time when women feel they can and should relate their experiences and men should pay attention, and I will and I think that is the appropriate response. Respond very well, very perhaps this intend to make her uncomfortable. But she is saying you did make me uncomfortable. And he's saying I will listen. So I don't know that we will see anymore smelling of hair and kisses. But. What? Misses me off. I tell you. Well, I don't want Joe to stop doing. I don't either, you know, I'm just gonna sit on thing. There's a certain kind of retail politician that loves people I would pull Bill Clinton in that category. I would my father in that category. I would certainly put Joe Biden in that category. When he came on the show is the only politician other than my father to go into the crowd and shake every now that means something when you're in Iowa, and I'm sorry. But I just when I heard this I read her entire statement. I do agree. Women should be heard. I'm sorry. I worked at Fox News during the Roger Ailes time. There's a very big difference between things like that. And things like this. And Mika Brzezinski said this morning Democrats have to ask ourselves. What exactly is the me too line? You wanna draw because you will live and die by that line. Joe Biden is a good decent. Man. I do not believe he's never made me feel uncomfortable. Once I've been around him a lot. Not hurt him. I hope not. But I think Democrats what I said on Friday about Democrats cannibalizing each other and eating their own the part you brought up about politics. She said on Jake tapper her politics it was politically motivated. She says politics was definitely impetus. The impetus is the reason why we're having the conversations and I'm sorry. She was a Bernie Sanders supporter in two thousand sixteen. She was just seeing baby. That was that because he's running under a livable thing. She's a she's a Bernier beta person ABC feels more inclined. Now, I don't know. But all I'm saying is that I've outed for his character and my personal experience. I'm saying what I'm doing. Ed want Trump in for another four years? I Don I is this is for me. This is these things are not democratic or Republican veasley are about listen, some people if they make you uncomfortable. And I know I'm pleased. Don't Email me or text me. Please. Please either my point I want women to get to the place where they can say, hey, you just made me uncomfortable. This idea that you have to tip toe away from this or you have to carry you do not have to carry if someone makes you. He came down to do you favor. He came down to do you a favor. He was at your fundraiser. You had every right to say, you know, what that said, I don't do that. Joe? Can I think the media is doing some of this to Stephanie Carter who is the wife of Defense Secretary ash Carter published a blog Sunday defending Joe by over a viral photo. Jiggs misrepresent you nervous in this experience. And he kept his hand on my shoulders as a mean of offering his support and said that she said to him. Thank you for letting him earlier in the day, and it made her feel frantic fled is not forgot these that that picture Joe Biden knows them. Yeah. Right. He was behind a whisper into so you have to stop characterizing stuff. Mischaracterizing, it that's comfortable experience for the other woman. It was not, but don't sit and wait and say, I'm uncomfortable on national television. Right. Because it makes us suspect of your listen be we're probably get heat over this. But I. That's all right. Yeah. I've been a woman a long time. I've been a woman a long time. My mother said if you're not comfortable, you tell them to stop. She she instilled that in me, and I'm trying to share it with you will be right back. Still ahead. Rossing Conway how Kellyanne Conway hit back at box newsmen Chris Willis for asking about her marriage. Did he step over the line? Or did she bring it up firs? Now is the time for strong women to speak out. And when these women come together watch out 'cause we have argue. If you want to get out and make it we have our voices every single one of us who have immoral compass have to speak up and listen to women. That's why when it's time DeVos your view. This is where you come varies is not as it is worth. He only place in daytime taking it all on a lot of healthy debate. At this able the are a lot of women around the stable you strong. Be bold all day long. And that is wide all the view on ABC. Dila had ISA array and Marseille Martin on the big buzz over their new comedy little and a brand new view your deal. Well, the back saw the war of words between you know, who and George Conway has been playing out on the public stage in Kellyanne Conway is weighed in about it several times in the past. But she drew the line in the sand on Fox News this weekend. Take a look has this hurt your marriage out. Chris what are you open out? I mean, what am I gonna couch and your psychiatrist I think that's really inappropriate question. Here's why that's the point. That's the line over which nobody should have crossed. So if you wanna talk about a policy issues policy disagreements the fact that my that fact that George Conway my husband would prefer that I not work in the White House. I guess you can ask questions of president is weighed in I've waited as modestly as I can. It is what people are talking about. If I fended you. I'm sorry. I'm sure. So which part of the question was in a pro, I don't think it's appropriate. When the president of the United States has weighed in has waited on Twitter weighed in on Twitter has weighed in publicly that makes it part of the discourse. In fact, the president has called him, Mr. Kellyanne Conway and the president also called him the husband from hell. And so since the presidential wanna know yet, right? President Twitter account. Those are official documents. I think it's part of the discourse I have to say I feel both ways because on the one hand. I really don't think that Walter Cronkite would've asked this question. I don't journal on the other hand is like who's afraid of Virginia Woolf in public constantly tearing at each other. So it becomes news. But in the back in the day Walter Cronkite would never touch this. Well, this would never happen back in the day. Like that people had a whole different. Yeah. Because his day these k- the Kennedy family was out of control, and nobody knew about now. Who is one of the great political? Journalists of our time has a piece out in the New York Times called all stuck inside. George and Kellyanne Conway's marriage and professor Troy's that this marriage represents the train wreck. That is our current political culture where all intertwined as Americans like we're all in this marriage together and constantly colliding against one another and whether they like it or not they have put their marriage their children their life out front and center in public. Giving interviews talking about it on TV. So you can't have it both ways. But there, but there's this feeling in the White House that they're zapped from when they make it public. I just wanna give a shout out to Chris Wallace. I think he's one of the best we still have living. He didn't wanna ask that question. He was very uncomfortable. That was ever watched it. I mean, should invest it. But we were all what we're all uncomfortable all the time with this. And they're doing it while, you know, impart, we're all uncomfortable because we have all put ourselves so far out there on Twitter and on Instagram that we tell everybody everything. So it's not a surprise that. We're wallowing in it. But oh what? What you what you mean? We what to mean we well. We gotta talk about it. About it. Bernie's birthday. Can I say happy birthday to my dog playoff? Four. We're always willing to give a bitch a shout out. Charter school charter day school in North Carolina had dress code requiring girls to wear skirts because the school founder Baker Mitchell claims that quote preserved chivalry and respect among young men and women now the girl said they spent so much time adjusting the start suppose wouldn't look up their dresses when they going up and down the stairs. They just couldn't focus in the classroom. So they took school to court and won. So. Do schools like this need to pay attention to things like that. A skirt should not invoke wh-, whether you're going to be chivalrous or not chivalrous because it's the right thing to do if that's what you're into but dry, and you does wearing to make that happen, right? If the skirts the problem, we've got a long way to go also on the weekends. If he noticed the new fashion for you, probably do with your kids. It's like belly shirts and shorts that have your juche out. I can't buy as where that not bad. But I I went to private school. I went to actually four different high schools, we move so much. I went to public and private I like the idea of a uniform because it taught me consistently, and I like not have the girls pants or or scored which I think the school had the option as well. Which is you know, what that is like the shorts under the skirt on. I don't have to hot. It's Carolina Vince too hot blend. The girls were pats going to be on the ground moving around uncomfortable girls wrong, comfortable going up and down. Because people look it up during the Catholic school. The nuns years ago, the nuns didn't want you to win night never went. But they couldn't wear Pat. They couldn't win patent leather shoes. Because the boys could see like a mirror distract. Gosh. I went to Catholic school, and I had skirts. Yeah. All the time. But you know, as as a mom of boy and girl, I just think it's ridiculous that they're blaming the girls thing again for behavior of boys. Teach your boys to be chivalrous, and that sort of the answer to the question. Right. Where spent challenging I remember, how do you go? This is the place round. Yeah. It's about teaching children. How big word. Respects, the diversity honors gala was held this weekend in Hollywood, Florida. And we want to congratulate who own. Oh, yes. Watts. I'm glad to Mason things. Yeah. And Stuart milk who is Harvey milk nephew Harvey, the great American icon who was assassinated for being gay fascinated for his political beliefs.

But honestly, my activism with the LGBT community goes back more than a decade and the love I have received back in return from LGBT community dedicated to my gave friend, Josh.

But it's it's rough. And this is also another sad start where heartbroken to hear about the loss of rapper entrepreneur, philanthropist, nipsy hustle, who was only thirty three, you know, he'd been pulling the neighborhood and the police and the gangs together and saying we have to find a better way to exist together.

But one of my mom's favorite movies growing up was big starring Tom Hayward. So I saw big, and I was like, well, what if we do this in like, you know, a different perspective more of a modern take on on, you know, what's going on now and make it a female empowerment all black women castes. So that's really how it came to be. And he's talking about it. My parents were really into it. And we talked to Kenny bears, which is creator of blackish. We talked about it. He loved it. And then we went to will Packer and then universal. And now we're here. Yeah. We just amazing. I remember meeting you at the dreamers academy last year you were talking about it. And this movie is about female empowerment, it has so many women of color front of the screen behind the screen, and you're such a role model to so many kids. My daughter included. What does that mean to you? How does it feel it feel surreal, you know, growing up? I didn't see a lot of me on the screen like a lot of young black girls that looked like me that can look up to in the industry. So me having opportunity to create things that I love and that I want everyone to feel comfortable in and be accepted by is. Absolutely amazing. And I'm so happy that everyone is looking at it and being inspired by. So I'll keep on moving forward. Congrats. Actually what I also remember about the Disney dreamers academies.

You do see tragedies, and they're all they're all extremely important this one, however, people have told me, it could have been my daughter could have been my sister could have been me in fact, so we were we're going to do every everything we can't on her life. And I've promised her family too. To honor them by improving rideshare safety first for college students. But then for all people, and I think most people have followed the case mean she she got into a car and Columbia thinking, it was an Uber. And it was not correct. You know, it was not an Uber. Young lady said, you know, I'm going to go home to go home safely called Newburgh was waiting exactly where she should have been a car pulls up sees the young lady on the curb, you know, bent on doing harm. She opened the back door got in the back seat. He puts the childproof locks on and takes her way into tragedy into the night. And we've got an informed people everywhere you and me too, by the way who were vulnerable never to get into a car before asking what's my name. You know, it's so interesting. I I was telling a colleague about this yesterday. Are I would go to New York every week this year? And I and I literally walked down the. Terminal, and some guy said where you going I said, so I I got into his car on my thing. What did I just do? I who the person is. And you do that all the time report. So we're in with Uber, and lift and all these other services, you're just getting in cars, and you're in a hurry. You know in a case of a young woman dying to get home plate, and you really can't wait to go. And and plus let's face it in the university setting the kids are a little trusting, you know, they they they believe everybody's you know, good person the car pulls up. So we've really got to start with education. As as the president as such an important leader, not only in in that community, but in this region in academia as you as you digested and processed at I'm interested in. How you dealt with it in what? Lead you to where we are right now. Well, you Patricia and I had a tragedy on the first weekend. We were president and first lady eleven years ago is a horrible traffic accident, and we went and dealt with the family not knowing what to do. I mean, what is called for? And there's no rule book about that. This last time we went and visited with her strong family her parents, but also extended family and just brought our, you know, compassion to them. And frankly, we drew courage from them. They told us her story. Samantha was a wonderful student had been accepted to law school in Pennsylvania with with lot of scholarship money beloved by her students did a lot of community service. You hold their hand you give them a hug, but her dad looked at me and said, please don't ever forget her. And I said we're going to dedicate a lot of effort to never forgetting her. What I what I told him is that even when I ask an Uber driver. What's my name? And I expect him to say Harris, I'm going to be thinking. My name is Samantha. That's interesting, and and so touching on on so many fronts. So. A lot of people with you at the forefront. Have started initiatives of of number one informing people. Let's let's let's get to that. And try to help people a lot of young people watch the show, as you know, what what should they be aware of all people for that matter? Well, of course, well, of course, the license plate the color of the car the name of the driver. But the driver really needs to affirmative Lee prove to you that they know your name, but we were so pleased that Uber proactively contacted us. They came down to the university yesterday. We had a press conference. They're changing the very way that the technology works. So every Uber passenger about a minute before their cars to arrive. We'll get a safety reminder not to get in the car until they follow the safety practices, and they continue to investigate. How technology could be used to make make it safer, by the way, Paul not only for the user, but for the driver to because the. The bad guy, the bad person could be on the curb next time. So this is this is good for the driver for the legitimate. Uber driver as it is for the passenger. So what would be the the one takeaway that people should know as far as part of this initiative. Don't get in the car. Don't put your behind in the backseat until you are confident that a match is made between you and them. And there are many ways to do that one of them though is to affirm that they know your name directly. Don't tell them your name. Right. And don't ask them. Are you John or you Hector whatever don't don't affirm that because if it's a bad person, he or she might say sure, that's who I am make sure that they utter your name. And then make sure that they tell you their name as well. There's certainly a lot more information about this initiative, and we will continue to pass that along. I it's it's rare to get you to talk to you in and realize there is a pretty strong turn here. Here to the next week. But I loot it to you being the president of the SEC. You're also announced that you were stepping down and read the other day that there the school is badly trying to replace you with a number of candidates, but I would like to have you reflect back on your years eleven in the SEC. I mentioned the Spurrier years where certainly quite extraordinary one national championship in women's basketball, the final four, and these are just the athletic side, indeed of things, but as the president of the SEC, the the meetings are coming up fairly soon in Dustin. What will if you can tell us what will be some of the topics? Well, of course, I meet with Commissioner Sankey all the time. I have thirteen other phenomenal colleagues. They're all wonderful people. I think the issues for this year center around student athlete wellbeing. They always do values and principles and playing the game. The right way, the SEC wants to be a leader in that when you dig deep. For of course, it's litigious environment with people, you know, suggesting that that that student athletes be given a lot more money. They're always issues of safety, of course, and not only concussion, but many many other issues as well fan safety metal detectors that that's becoming the reality. Now, working under king Alexander at LSU. We're initiating, you know, what will be required. Metal detection going both into football stadia and into basketball arenas. It's just the way of the world and many many other things like that selling alcohol at athletic events. And and I must say, frankly, the role of ESPN and the role of television everyone's moving into more of a digital a marketplace people at some level or dropping cable subscriptions, but they're not spending less money on watching athletics. They're just doing it on different platforms. So we're very concerned about that. And want to be part of the conversation. Yeah. It is fascinating. Because when when just network launched. Five years ago or with the first game, of course, coming from your stadium. Yes. I it it it. It was a breakthrough moment. And I know not to this is not to to Pat anyone on the on the back. But but that that move that was initiated by originally by Commissioner psyche. And ultimately before him Commissioner slide mitt changed a lot of the way schools individual schools can operate. Indeed, we share our revenue. I think your your viewership knows that one South Carolina, Winston basketball or Alabama. Let's Winston football. They really don't get more money than the other universities. We like it that way. We're one of the few conferences that don't have a buyout program. In other words, if the university wants to walk away from the conference. Yeah, you don't have to pay us. It's like, okay. Best wishes like we don't expect that by the way. And so is it a long time. Now. Now, we don't see it happening. The other thing I may have mentioned before is scheduling, I know your fans are very interesting, especially in inter divisional scheduling, it's a hot topic. And if I may say there's disagreements about that a lot of universities have what they'll call a natural or historical rival on the other side. We don't particularly we've got Texas. Am right now we had Arkansas before that? Those universities are a long long way from from South Carolina hard to get fans to travel there beautiful schools worthy schools love visiting them. But we'd we'd also like to visit some other universities and expand the fan and the player experienced that way. Not not everybody feels the same way. I'm really interested. We're talking to a lot of athletic directors. And they even though I know there are there are always factions. There's a younger group there's a older among president. So you don't really hear bickering? At the at the CEO presidential chance or level. What's it like when when all of you get into a room like like a brotherhood, and you know, it really is we get along. We we have the same problems. I had Samantha Joseph and they had a different problem. Greg always hosts the kind of the night before in a private. Hey guy is not a work session. You know, we talk we eat, and we you know, we develop that camaraderie, and then during the business meetings when we disagree. It's a is obviously professional, and that's how we move the the conference forward. And that front because we not to during bring you in any any other schools issues, but there's always something going on at some school. And and you forget that the president. I'll let you finish the sentence hires Bethlehem director, and that is supposed to be the person that hires. The next person doesn't always work that way. But, but how do you see that role because we it gets confused and blurred? Sometimes I think the president in AD need to be partnered up in my case with Ray, Tanner. Although I did hire him Eric Hyman before that I did not, you know, their lives are really hard. And I've got a I've got to be a have to have their back. And if they don't consult with me, and I don't know something. And then something breaks, I'm left, you know, not knowledgeable about that. But it is. But but then I'm not a micromanager, you know. It's his job to hire coaches. And frankly to fire coaches is it's his job to finish in the black every year. It's his job to build the facilities. But I think if you have a trust based relationship he'll know that he's got my back when he needs that. And of course, he's got mine as well. In terms of leading university. One one is big as broad and diverse as the university of South Carolina on a daily basis. What is the biggest challenge? Well, I think in this day of escalating tuition when you see young people like myself who were first generation college students in my case from New York immigrant parents who needed a public university to send their son to college and that becoming out of reach for people in what I'll call that middle class. That's a very big problem. That's a concern of mine. A passion of mine and number two the quality of the product. Are we training them? Both to be good citizens and good people in the workforce. Or are. They getting what they need is the liberal arts still the core of American higher education. I believe it is. But is it enough? I know you also have to make them skilled at being part of the of the digital world. We live in the business world and prepare them for a great career. So we were always focused on that. But athletics really is the front porch of the university. And I can't tell you. But that when a we had on eleven win season. Let's say with coach Spurrier, and then you go on and win the Capital One bowl or the outback bowl or you make the final four or with Don Staley you win at all how applications and enrollment spike immediately interesting. You would ask the young person. What are you thinking, you know, just because we want it last year? Now, you wanna go to my school? But that is the way it works. And so athletics is not only a, you know, it's not only a Saturday afternoon event that something that makes the alumni proud. They donate more, you get more applications, but but you've got to manage all of that all the time. Quite an extraordinary life. Well, lived in appreciate coming to talk about Samantha. And I know that's something dear to you. But we wish you well. I know you've got a lot more to do. Even though you're you're moving on from the presidency. But we really appreciate you coming by today. Thank you pull. Let me thank you for all you do. We'll I'll see you again in Destin. I know you'll broadcast from there. Well, it'll be an exciting time this year, you know, because you never that far away from the next football season. Of course, so go Gamecocks, but go SEC, thank you very much. Thank you, president of the SEC an the -versity of South Carolina. Dr Harris STD's, we appreciate him being here. We'll take a short break and back with the remaining moments of this program. Listening to about Paul finebaum show podcast motor back. Really great conversation with Dr pass jetties. Let's continue with more calls. And checking with an in Florida next, an thank you. Good afternoon. Get afternoon. First time caller, I was calling. I was a little set what he said about Stotts stricklin of Florida. If there were any bias as the gator fan, I could see being in a similar situation to Georgia's sometime soon, and I would want us to be selected and would set a precedent. If Georgia was selected to be you know in the play off. So I think that his explanation didn't make any sense. Talk about a straw, man theory that it's a thirteen person committee, and based on what I had heard it really wasn't that close. Oklahoma was the fourteen Georgia was considerably behind them. And a lot of people argued that will house state of all schools probably should have been in even though I didn't agree with that. But. I think sometimes when you hang around a certain mentality, you begin to disseminate that, and that's not unusual for our former guest. Thanks for the call. Mike is in Baton Rouge. You are next up. Good afternoon. You all wanted to pick your brain there for a second. Obviously, repeating your thanks to Dr Steve, you know. Solidifying students safety is probably one of the key important things that anybody at any college good could you know, try to benefit from but getting back to the athletics. Here. I wanted to pick your brain for a second in in my opinion. I went to Florida. But now I live in Baton Rouge. So I'm kind of a, you know, pilgrim and unholy land so to speak, but but I've noticed something the last couple of years, and and let's just take football and set that aside here for a second. When you talk about teams that are possibly building a rivalry. You wanna talk about teams that have this rich history and tradition of sports and excellence in that now like I said, take football aside and look at both LSU in Florida. I mean gymnastics one of those two teams almost winning the national championship every single year basketball and not necessarily so much for the to Florida does have a couple of championships in years past. And look what happened just this year alone. Florida ends up winning two out of three on the basketball court softball, very very similar one of those teams is always up for that. Baseball. Look what happened last night. I mean, Florida puts up fourteen on rent LSU. I'm sorry. Sixteen on a fourteenth ranked LSU team now at football to that. You know, obviously, you have two teams that are constantly going at it. And don't get me wrong. I know people wanna have, you know, people from Florida say well, Florida state's rival and people in LSU say, well, Alabama's rival well the last couple of years, they really haven't been a rivalry. But if you look at these T these teams on the football field the last couple of years have had had a little bit of quote unquote hatred about. Yeah. And only, you know, so I think in my mind, these two schools are starting to build a really really deep rivalry. And in my opinion. They could be one of the best in the SEC. Well, yeah, I mean, it it has been over time. But but I agree and you know being in Gainesville yesterday. Mike, I wondered about that. Because I even talked to Dan Mullen about who is your rivalry. Because he said when I was there with urban was Tennessee Spurrier you had to beat Tennessee, Georgia. Yeah. Joe Georgia's interesting, I it depends on. On which side of the fence, you're on with Georgia in terms of exactly who it means more with. But I been with hell I happen to work on a show with primarily Florida and LSU people you can figure out who they are. And there is always it's always going back and forth. Now add on top of that this year alone. The series is finally coming back to Baton Rouge and LSU decides to play Florida on their homecoming night. So I mean, if you wanna talk about a rivalry building. That's pretty much prime time placement right there. No doubt. Hey, mike. Thank you, very very much for the call. We will continue great conversation there with Dr pestis. We have a lot more to come. We talked about Nick Sabin hip surgery. It's Monday in case, you have your calendar connected. No live coverage though. More phone calls at eight five five two four two seven two eight five, but we are back here. Live in just a moment. To listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back. I'm really glad you are with us in Joel is in Georgia. Joe go right ahead. All I wanted to make a comment about the my grip of call Shera dog next to the letter, and I'm just really don't think his comments we're the same as a lot of Georgia fans feel about the situation. And it just kind of I think you shed a four light on the program and just giving bulletin board material to to other teams, and I know controversy sells, but you know, calling other people's character on the table, and well, listen, I called them on it, even though he didn't specifically say because he when you insinuate something. Even like that. You're you're you're suggesting it so I think, and that's okay, listen, you know, Mike Tyler say, whatever he wants we invited them on. But I'm also I feel like I have every right to jumped in. Sure, you're well, we had, you know, he posted another article on dog nation, and you know, ruffled some feathers with some fans, and the parents, of course, of of a popular ballplayer. You know? He wasn't at a a part of the practice that you know, the short period found that the media's allowed to be there. And you know, you just insinuated in a in an article, you know, something to the effect of checking the police blotter and the kid is not in any trouble. No problems whatsoever. And it was just an off color comment that just I don't know it just goes on. With with what he just said on on the air. Thank you very much. Joe? I do appreciate that. Listen, we invite people on to give their opinions. They're there representing their news organization not the fan base. Although sometimes those lines do get blurred. Mike is in Georgia. You're on the air. Mike. You know, I'm no big Mike Griffin fan. Then I kinda agree with the last caller. You know, I read all his articles on Doug nation and everything. And a lot of them were controversial. But I will say I think is unfair to have him characterized as a mercenary because he leaves one job, you know, to go to another job. And I mean by that. Well, not bring that up is there. I mean, there was I didn't specifically say what I mean there were a couple of times for four years ago, and he was clearly carrying Butch Jones water. Well, I agree. I agree. In fact, that's the first half of your interview your conversation with them today. You know, kinda made me worry about Georgia's chances this year because the last time I heard him bloviating over a team and a cut so much. It was Butch Jones. Mike, there's a bigger issue here. And I'm not gonna spend a lot of time on it. But when you nowadays in in in the writing world and in the digital world if you don't take. That side you may not be pleasing your bosses because there's very little room for the vanilla milk toasts writing or just a writing about what you what's happening. If you don't have an edge your bosses are not happy because all they and I I made a speech a couple years ago to the Associated Press sports editors meeting, and I made this very same point. I said you people here, and I meant by that the people that are in charge are the problem. It's not that. It's not the beat writers because you all you guys care about and women I should add because there are some certainly women leadership as well. People care about is getting clicks on the internet getting Twitter. Re tweets you don't care about quality and much speech. Did not go over very well. And I haven't been invited back. But that's okay. I'm glad I said it, and it's the I it's it's the sports editors, and it's the editors because that's what that's what rules the roost nowadays in the digital space. Are people clicking on your article? And I realize it's a business. But there's there also has to be some integrity. Does they're not. I thought there had to be let's talk to. I'm an nex when you speak of integrity. You think of I man from Montgomery? That's what is for. I meant. I meant integrity, man. Man. Dino, Paul was looking at TV there. And it said, you know, Nick from America's he he's begging people to call in to save show. Saint shows such kind of saves you gotta save the show. To be better. Yeah. Used to be better than another fellow that doesn't call anymore. He say same thing in it's up to certain people make bright call save show. It's not my job to say this show, my job knit from America's hashtag, Georgia. Whatever all the things you do with your little thing there. My job is for me to make a good call. And if your calls sucks, then it sucks, I can't help that my job NFL in. But you're talking only jump in one second. Sure sure you have called this show for how long twenty years longtime. You've had some great calls from not. So great calls and some really Nick is called in this show for five years, and he's never even had an average call. But he bakes his tweets to be on air. Yeah. Oh, put my tweet tweet a link from Nick. I mean, I don't wanna say he's the worst caller because to be the worst of anything that means you you have to stand out. He doesn't stand out. You know, I hear all these people talking about saving show and show sex, and this and that and the other, and you know, narrow mind is is you can't compete with a narrow mind. I mean, this is it's just never going to be highway. It's never going to create commerce for the city is never going to bring tax dollars. It's not going to bring audience. It's not going to be a strip centers malls. Mcdonald's is not gonna set up house there and Hardee's across the street and Paul finebaum. Probably don't even won't show on that narrow men low road because that's what you get with narrow thinking. Now, you've got a group of professionals there. John Mark yourself, and y'all got contracts you got will be greatly bait money, then when you were all making big money. Yeah. When you have co host you've got big co host important co host. And when you have guests bath is very knowledgeable pig. This is what they do for a living. And and for these people. To think somebody's got to save the show. Maybe these people that are talking all of this need to broaden their horizons and understand it's not all about this one school's quarterback to Nellis move on that narrow Mont stuff. You know, Paul big on the nets cycle operator. Nick, I figured out rated Donut. Yesterday. Are they going to do this and one little pop up tents like the head on sideline created all the miracles during the football game? Then guys go in there banged up. Looking looking like beetle Bailey and income in that red rate tackle sort snorkel again. And I'm thinking that's the place, but the problem with him look tense. There's not there's going to be so many people looking over each other's shoulders when they do a hit report stepped me more people in there than it was at John F Kennedy's autopsy you wait a minute. What are you doing? What do you know what you're doing get you see all in my glass and back and forth whipped? And right shifting. This is an important thing. And you know, that got a hand to stick up in power, somebody got hand somebody and it to me, I'll hope I'll be I'll hold you up Alabama. I'll stand in for your guy, and I'll keep you strong and great dislike me more than eagle amid grit cough. Harry is up next. Hello, harry. Welcome to the program. Any paul? Thank you for taking my call. I'm glad to get in because being spring break. My. Daughter was watching Paul the show. And then what a great guests to have on for young people to watch particularly her. But thank you other than of South Carolina. You know, we we never think of certain things that are going to be helpful in education on air popped up. Right. From say, I wanna thank you for that ball. Now. My my regular question that I had planned on asking before. I even saw the president. I didn't know he was even going to be on. Paul. This was asked to answer. Just let me know. But but I I don't know the answer. I'm just I just want your opinion when the would gets LSU, and and when when coach Wade goes how much of a chance the give Billy Kennedy if indeed even wants it if he did what chances the think he would have to get virtually none. That's what I thought you'd say. But I wanted to get it from EUPOL. But thank you again, great show, and you have a great Easter weekend. Thank you very much. Always great to hear from a Harry, we're up against a break still time for you to get in at eight five five two four to seven to eight. We appreciate you being with us realize this is a holiday series important holiday. Good friday. But we felt like we had to be here. Just so you could hear I'm in. We're back after this to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back to the program. More of your calls at eight. I five to four two seven two eight five and Fred is up next in Texas. Hello. Take him a call brother as a Good Friday to you everybody who celebrating Passover tomorrow, we have a wonderful Passover. And then if the east of debate is sending this thing you have had a addict payment to this need really the last three days about Dallas. You this meant this. Did that today that a new EP stat malignant, and it was whether he would come in, and, you know, make coach owner vers where the wheel way should be nervous. But I want to focus on coach. Who of course, his team won ten games last season. What do you think shit? Make coach nervous. If you just does what he supposed to do. Nothing. About the way. I don't know. It was your on that. Well, but I think I know him well enough to say what I'm about to say, I don't think he really gets nervous about anything. I mean, this guy has already beaten beaten the house. He's he's the head football coach at LSU. No one saw that coming. He was the interim coach given no chance of survival. Not only did he survive. He got a really good year last year. And he's expected to have a good year this year. And if he does and he'll get in trouble, just like any coach LSU will get in trouble after a bad year like any coat. Exactly. And I want to add. The theme that Iliad which made to take should be should be navy about annuity. Here's the fifth and you look at the staffing at she. Typically, if the Tiffany eighties enemy, and they have been in Mandalay, Nevada the Nevada. Yes. Fit into it. She leads the hand at one because coach wasn't asking for it. They Finally I think got the ten analysts just this past year. And I think that having a new AD could be the difference in terms of coach own that having a struggle to get the things that he needs to have the winning program. What I think you're right. I I'm we're not here to bury Joe Aleve. That's already happened. But we all know he didn't run a very good ship. Fred you you're closer to its an I am. There's. And it would it was almost like a tale of two city. And I think it was in your interview yesterday. I can't remember the gentleman's name. But he was talking about how Texas and them should have done more to keep woodwork. And he said that with is then half-yearly do you remember that? Yeah. And then she she tesla headed and you'll find it on Twitter, so joy leva and wildly wildly unpopular comes up. So that wasn't they weren't allowed to cheerleaders for Joe L. Look, he's always about the doors. I'm not gonna pile on any more than than it needs to be said, which is that they will questions about him running the program. But I'm saying this coast. Oh, I think it's going to be cited. And and I know we'll wave excited maybe for deeper reason. But have a great weekend, brother. I love you. And you are at Great America. Thank you very much. Really good to hear from you for the let's continue with more calls, and Joe is in Georgia Asia. Welcome to the program. Good afternoon. Hey, thanks for a second. My call what I wanted to tell you. I have two tickets to the first game that Georgia had ever played in hidden Sanford stadium and most of the Georgia fan have never seen those. I'm sorry. Joe haven't seen what I got to Georgia tickets that was played in Sanford stadium. Again, their first game in Sanford stadium. Okay. And I didn't know most of the Georgia people have never had a ticket like that. It was played in nineteen twenty nine. Oh my goodness. I bet you're right. I got him off of fellow. He didn't know what he had. I bought them for for twenty dollars. That's amazing. What do they look like? Well, they're are big. They're huge tickets that cost three dollars. They're huge pace board tickets ran and gold acted if if I had your Email. I I tell you what Joe let me put you on hold and we'll get we'll get it to you. Thank you very much. Okay. Mickey is in Louisville. Hey mickey. Hey, Paul sorry about the tragedy in South Carolina. Unfortunately, my question is about South Carolina's quite all right yesterday on your show. They did it tour of the new fifty million dollar and that South Carolina put in which all. Extras you want including a recording studio. Darius Rucker Serta. Okay. Several years ago Kentucky put in the wildcat law which wish for the basketball team. I me bright with all the extras and the NCWA rules. I do remember that they said they couldn't do it. They said they couldn't offer Ashley stuff that was not available right tooting body. So that is a I remember that that that's where they the players used to live and hang out. And you know, I don't know. I think what's going on. Now is it every I've been to pretty much all of them every one of these campuses have have new football facilities. But I'm pretty sure that they're on. They're not although at South Carolina may be but I think you get around it at the difference. I think it can Tuqiri was the players the players. Live there versus worked out there. Okay. Because I'm pretty sure that even that the football facility. I mean, how is it? The I was at the university of Florida weight room yesterday, and you had you had students athletes from from various sports working out. And now, I'm a man I'm imagining that the football facility at all. At at USC is not limited only to foot I could be wrong. But. Thirty five athletes. Okay. So. It's a great question though and making the wildcat lodge. That was I remember when that started that was that was a state of the art facility. No one had ever done any thing quite like hate to run. We we still have an hour to go. We'll talk more about the Texas AM search for Scott Woodward's replacement will also get to your phone calls, and you can call us now at eight five to four to seven to eight five.
