"Foreign affairs for The Economist. So I arrived at this pantry club and it was just a really surprising site. There were lots of people playing cricket, most of them women, there was funk music, playing, people were having fun, it was a really relaxed environment. And then the other really interesting thing about pasta is that the people who are leading this cricket revelation if you like are women. So there's 14 professional cricket players in Brazil, the national center for cricket is impossible. And all of those professionals are women. When did Brazilians themselves start playing cricket? The first cricket that arrived in Brazil, it was in the mid 19th century. It was played by British expats, who were there to build the railways in Brazil. And this was not a game really played by Brazilians at all, but now this is definitely beginning to change. I think there's been a few different attempts to get Brazilians playing cricket, but by far the most successful I think began about two decades ago when Matt featherston is this X player from Britain moved to Brazil for love and once he arrived, he noticed that there was a street version of cricket called taco. It's played by kids. They use bottles instead of stumps. Many of them use a rolled up bowl of socks or some other makeshift ball. And it's a fun game that's quite popular in cities. And so Matt noticed that this could be easily adapted into cricket. He started encouraging them to bowl over our tweaked a few things. And then had these kids playing a more traditional version of cricket. And so how did it develop from there? I think the great thing about cricket is there's a very strong offensive camaraderie, it's a very community focus sport. And pass us, they really tried to build that over time. And by 2009 it had become a regular program, organized by cricket Brazil, they've got teams for the blind, for disabled kids. They have a scholarship program that pets get players through university and then gets them back into the communities, coaching kids. And the really remarkable thing about process now is that over 5000 children now play credit, which is actually more than the number of kids who play football in the city. George, I mean, that seems extraordinary to me that cricket is now more popular than football anywhere in Brazil. It's just remarkable. And also that so many women are playing professionally. Why do you think that is? I think the big difference in Brazil and also other non traditional cricketing countries like Thailand is that they did not have that historical sexism in the game. So in countries like England or India for a long time it was only men who played cricket. In Brazil, hardly any Brazilians played cricket. So when it came to deciding to develop a national team, in Brazil, it made more sense to focus on developing the women's team, they'd have less ground to make up upon other cricketing countries. And that's what they've done and the women are doing really well. They're ranked a lot higher than the men are. And they've also become local celebrities, really impostor. It sounds to me like cricket is unusually popular in puss. What do you think the chances are that it could become a national sport that more Brazilians could take it up? So I think it's still early days for cricket in Brazil, but already it's got a lot of fans. So one of those fans is actually the mayor of posas. He's very confident that scene it can spread to the whole of Brazil. And I think already we're starting to see that that's happening. So cricket Brazil is building a federation of teams which will play in Salvador and the northeast, Brasília, and in São Paulo and within the next 5 years they're aiming to have 30,000 players in the region around process as well. So it's growing very quickly. There's a lot of enthusiasm and it looks possible that it could soon become a big sport in Brazil. Georgia, thanks so much for joining us today. Thanks.

"I was like, that's not a real thing. When you have your no, I remember having a girlfriend who had him, and I was like, girl, just breathe. Just sit down and breathe, you know? And then cut to a couple years later, I started having them. Three to 5 a day, I could be happy and all of a sudden, I felt like I was gonna die. I felt like I was having a heart attack and went to the doctor to be like, oh no, no, you've been under a lot of stress and you have not processed it. You had a lot of trauma. So you wanted to put me on medication. I am, you know, to each his own, but I wanted to, before I got on the medication, I wanted to see if I could address it in a more holistic way, at least first. And so a friend of mine who was very into meditation was like why don't you try that, you know, it's been proven to help PTSD and veterans and people that come home from war. So let's see. And the day I started after I learned the day I started transcendental TM. My panic attacks went away. So now it's like, that was, you know, I dived in after that and did lots of research and there's people should do their research on all of the benefits. It helps keep the gray matter in the brain. It slows the thinning of the gray matter. When your gray matter, as you age, it gets thinner and that's where all the brain diseases can come from, like dementia and Alzheimer's, lowers blood pressure without meds. There's so many benefits and it's just like 20 minutes a day. So to all you guys listening, I encourage you and we look into a meditation practice, yeah, especially in today's world where we are just always on our phones, you know, and never present. Social media, all of it. It's hard. You know, you got to really kind of carve out time for yourself. I agree. I agree. It's very easy to wake up and look at the phone first thing in the morning and very easy to just be mindlessly scrolling and you're like, why am I even using this phone? So anything that I think time. Yep. And you don't even realize it. You don't even realize it. Wasting your life. But I'm super, super grateful to be able to talk with you today and thank you so much. We really appreciate it. Thank you. That was great. I appreciate you. In her shoes is edited and produced by Camila Salazar.

"Audition process, I got the job. And, you know, I'm excited because it's a coming of age story about a young girl who is finding out who she is and finding out who she is through her voice, finding her authentic voice. And isn't that the question for all of us? Yeah. Yeah, that's like, that's the goal. I think that's like my the underground theme that I'm that it seems like I'm because I'm trying to find that for myself as well. No, I think that's beautiful. That's also something that I think we're all searching for and wondering and questioning and constantly trying to find an answer to and that whether there would be a pinpointed answer to that or not. I think that that's something that we all think about. Or to that. I want to talk about Succession since the new trailer just dropped. I'm obsessed with Succession. I'm very excited. What was it like working on season three and can you tell us anything about your character or just your experience overall? Yeah, so I got the offer right in the fall and we were nowhere near outside of the quarantine and I remember saying to a friend that I said, I would like to have something in the can. You know, a job in the can, you know, soon. But I wasn't thinking that soon. And I had to get on a plane within a matter of weeks to go to New York. In the middle of the quarantine. So that was very scary for me. And it was a trip to work with all of the PPE and it was like swimming underwater with weights. And yet I was a huge fan of the show. I think it's some of the best writing and acting on TV and I knew that I had to be a part of it. And it was a great experience. You know, I got to go to New York several times over the last year and work with some just great actors. It reminded me of, you know, my early days working in the theater, just that kind of level of commitment. And just depth, you know? And so just super grateful. Super grateful for the opportunity, had a great time. Despite, you know, despite the, you know, the pandemic of it all. Yeah. I'm very excited to see that. Speaking of theater, you've done so much work in the theater. Do you see the difference between the work in your process? Is that anything different between stage and film? And do you prefer one of the other? Do you have aspirations to do more theater work? Yeah, I love theater. I feel happiest when I'm on stage. For me, it's so all incredibly the 8 shows a week that it has to be a role that is just undeniable that I can not refuse. Anything less than that, I would rather be on a movie set because you could have a life, you know? But there's nothing like the exchange of energy between the audience and you as the character and the fact that you get to live the character from beginning to end every night and not out of order. That is very satisfying for an actor. And it's different every night and it's exciting and it's just, you know, there's nothing that can touch that. Yeah. You just said something interesting about having a life and obviously being filmed TV theater. I know the schedules must be crazy and always hectic. But tell me a little bit about just, I think how you're able to deal with it, both mentally, emotionally. I know there must be a lot of stress or am I getting this part or am I not? And you've been in the industry for so long. And so how do you feel like you've been able to grow in that area and what is it like? Because I also feel like people really glamorize it in a way that is probably different in reality. Yeah, it is different. I mean, you know, any freelance artist, it is, there takes a lot of faith because after every single job, I don't care how much success you've had. You don't know what the next thing is until you know the next thing is. And so, you know, when I chose to be a zoom therapist in my short, it was because I know that experience very well. I've had lots of therapy ever had life coaching. I lean on my Friends. A lot of people are like, how can you be friends with your competition, but I find that, you know, only they know what I'm going through. I just spoke to this woman who kind of just I won't say her name, but just got a lot of success in the last year and she's having a hard time because it's just like overnight. And I said, please just reach out. She was thinking about quitting. And I was like, you gotta reach out. You gotta reach out. I've reached out to me, reach out to somebody else because it is no joke. That amount of faith. And some days you don't have the face. And then on top of it, there's the level of scrutiny and, you know, it's just, I feel very, very blessed, and yet I do not ever envy anybody's success because every at every level of success in this business, whether it's small or the biggest star in the world, it comes with its huge challenges. And there's just still you're always proving yourself. There's always rejection. There's always scrutiny. And that's why I tell young people who are getting into the business or any kind of freelancing a writer, a journalist, you know. You have to really, really want to do it because if you can do anything else, do it, because it can be very emotionally abusive. Yeah. I mean, I think that's for most creative. Physicians. I feel that way about fashion, so I get it. I want to end on there people always love to hear any wellness things. I've read that you're big on meditation and just talking about mental health, so any favorite wellness things you're doing or that you want to talk about yeah, self care, people talk about self care like it's a catch phrase, but it really will, like, if you're in line with yourself and you're taking care of yourself everything outside of you, people will treat you different. If you are actually in and when I say self care, that means, you know, taking time to yourself, where you're not on your phone and doing your version of meditation, walking outside, getting a foot massage, taking a bath. These are little things that you're doing for yourself. And when you do them for yourself, it's almost like it becomes a magnet for other people to treat you with care. If you can't treat yourself with care, then you're not going to get it from the outside. It's a weird kind of way to think about it. But that's I found that to be very true. And I'm a huge believer in meditation. Everybody can learn how to meditate. You all you got to do is Google meditate meditation. I do transcendental meditation years ago. I had a very I had a lot of trauma. I had a best friend suddenly die along with many other things that happened all at once and I started having panic attacks. And I didn't even.

"Rigorousness. Being scared for 6 months straight, being in panic for 6 because then basically your reality. You're going to work to be scared. And that is, it was rough. It was an intense, rough shoot. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done. And I was very lucky to have a really great crew and cast around me who were very supportive and great. But just in terms of the actual physical nature of it and the emotional nature of the state that you have to be in for those many months, it was intense. Yeah. I mean, it sounds very intense. Yeah. And I was really, I remember even thinking, I was like, wow, why did this surprising? Are they looking for a black woman for this? You know, what is it about and I love the fact that I was, you know, black women kind of saved the earth. She doesn't die. Literally when I first, you know, literally. I love that. Are you getting the most of your spectrum video subscription? With dozens of premium exclusive shows, it's hard to know where to start, but fear not your newest obsession has arrived. Joe Pickett follows the life of a young game warden who's ready to shake things up in saddle string Wyoming. As a man who lives to protect the hunted and lay down the law of the land, Joe must come to terms with his past, and face his fate as murders, mysteries, and mayhem take root across town. And in his own backyard, how will he reconcile with the town that has turned cowboy? Will he be able to keep his family safe and when will the chaos end? There's only one way to find out new episodes of Joe Pickett are released weekly, available now exclusively on spectrum. So let's talk about your directorial film debut with the adaptation of Angie Thomas's novel on the come up. First of all, congratulations. Thank you. What is that path been like from acting to directing, you know, why was that important to you and just walk me through that journey? Well, it's interesting because I always wanted to be a director when I was a little girl. I would always say I want to be a director when I grow up like my dad. And then I got involved in some after school performing programs and in college was in a black theater group called black theater workshop where we put on plays by black authors. And it was there that there was a recruiter from the Yale school of drama who came and spoke to us. And she said, you know, statistically minorities don't consider graduate school in the arts. And that was back then. That's what she's, you know, she was a recruiter for them. And she was like, you guys should consider applying. And I was like, you know what? That might be cool. Let me apply. And it was almost like getting in to drama school, kind of took me on a different path. It kind of made the decision for me. And so then I just have gone down this acting road. But I think that actors turned directors. They can make sometimes the best directors because they've been around it. They know what works. But lately, I just feel like life has kind of been ushering me in that direction. I was asked to be a mentor to directors at the Sundance lab. I had a DP kind of after working with me approach me and say, you know, I teach DPs at a college level, directors, cinematographers, is like you should really consider directing because you're a director. He had seen me kind of on set. And so it was just kind of a lot of outside influences kind of pushing me in that direction. And then there's a company called Maven pictures that when we had the lockdown, the original quarantine in LA, I got an offer from them to do a short film with the subject matter of what is it to be in this lockdown and they would provide the editor a writer and you would come up with a story and do the short film. And I took that as my opportunity I directed it. And it turned out pretty well. It just premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. It's about an OCD panic disorder, zoom therapist, who has panic OCD disorder herself. And it's very quirky. And she's in the middle of the pandemic and obviously she's taking care of all of her clients all day long because everybody's thinking it's the end of the world. And she gets a postmate and she goes and she's like, I didn't order this post mate. She goes outside and there's a dog in her yard. And a note from a postmate saying, I think you're a really nice lady. You always tip me really well. I can't afford my dog because of the shutdown. I lost my job. Will you please take care of this dog? And so she winds up having to take in this dog. And she has OCD. So she's just not having it. But it kind of turns out that the dog winds up being her therapist by the end. I love the dog winds up kind of taking care of her. It's cute. So it was a great experience. And I thoroughly enjoyed the process and you asked me about on the come up and this is a really long security to get there. But this is kind of how it unfolded. And then, you know, people started seeing my short and kind of saying, you know, you should get into directing and my agents were like, would you like me to start submitting you for directing gigs? And I said, sure. And I was thinking, you know, in a couple years, I do it. And then on the come up came up and I really responded to the story and I had to get in there and basically quote unquote audition like the way director's audition, which is give a 40 page presentation, Gina prince wood was a very close friend of mine. She was a great mentor during the process. I call her my mentor now. She loves it. And after like a two month.

"Then you don't want to go to the gym. I mean, it's just a whole, that is really the same thing. Yeah, no, it is because I used to love to get my hair flat iron, you get flatiron like once every two weeks, but then you time it. So, you know, you wanted to stay straight and silky and bouncy for the first 5 days, but you don't want to stay away from gym too long. Exactly. So you have to time it. Okay, I'll get it. I'll go to the gym, you know, last couple of days before I get it redone. So I was at a point in my life where it was scary as hell. The idea of shaving my head because, you know, who knows? I mean, I didn't know what shape had I had. I didn't know if I had dense or I had a conehead. Larry, Sims, who's a big celebrity hairstylist, I convinced him to do the movie and I every day I asked him because there was a D-Day because you couldn't go back. You had to do we had to do it all in one take what you see in the movie is real. Like you're seeing me actually shave my head. And I asked him over and over again, I said, do you think you think I have a funny shape head? He's like, no, baby, you have a beautiful head. And I said, and you can tell. And he was like, yes. You can tell. You know, you could just do stuff. And then the day I did it, I shaved it, he ran into the bathroom and the tears in his eyes, and he said, thank God. I said you didn't know he said no, you never know. You never know he's like I was hoping that you have a nice shaped head. I love it. So it was, you know, we had scheduled the day that we're going to shoot that scene and it was very nerve wracking not only for me but for the whole crew because we knew we had to get it right. We had to get it right in one take. They rigged the camera behind the mirror. So I was actually looking into a mirror. It didn't, I didn't see the camera, which was really helpful. And that day, I found some music that really helped me get into just her state of mind and her emotional state, which was great. And on that particular set, the sound person in between takes, we would blast music. That was just, you know, different sets, they have different kinds of things that go on. And so I just asked him to blast the music during the scene. And it was really wonderful. And you know, everybody was, it was kind of like a triumphant emotional, the whole set was crying because it was kind of cathartic for everybody. You know, the symbol of the hair. Like, I'm just gonna let go of everything outside of just who I am. And so, and I said to myself, I said, you know, if I hate it, I have wigs. Wigs are in too. Yeah. People change their wigs like they change your earrings. Exactly. All the lace front. And so I was like, I have wigs. I could just wear wigs for, you know, a little bit, and then I'll put braids in my hair when it grows out a little bit. And surprisingly, I kept shaving it. I loved it. I had so much male attention. Men? It was like they were obsessed with it. It was crazy. It was the opposite of what I love that you were surprised by that. No, I really was, because I mean, I had ex-boyfriends, calling me, texting me, saying that, oh, can I come rub your head? I was really shocked. And anyway, so it's been three years, and ever since, once it got to that kind of awkward, there's always that middle stage when it gets to be a certain where it's not that cute, or at least I couldn't get it cute 'cause it does take a lot of energy for natural hit natural hair is just as a lot of work. Demanding. Yeah. They have a lot of amazing YouTube videos, tutorials, and I would watch them and not do it. Because I Google twist out every other night. And then I'm like, this looks wonderful, but I don't have the time for this. I don't have the time, or the energy. No. And so then once it got long enough, I just started wearing braid styles, all different kinds, and then when I would work, I would just put it braid it down and then wear wigs. And so it's actually longer than it's ever been. Every single day I fantasize about shaving it off again. Oh, wow. It's actually my mother who keeps saying no, no, no. Isn't that such a mother? She's like, no. Such a mom thing. Such a mom thing. But yes, I'm in Palm Springs right now. It's a high of like one 15 today. This would be a good time to have a shade. Yeah, I was gonna say. I would be perfect. I'm gonna take it back even further, but I mean, love and basketball, alien versus predator, you have so many amazing, amazing credits, you were extremely phenomenal in alien versus predator, and you've had the record for highest opening weekend for a movie led by a black woman until lupita was in 2019s us. And I bring this one up specifically because sci-fi is not generally a genre that black women really have a lot of taken up space in and survive and thrive and figure out a way I think to create a different language that isn't already available, especially in the 2000s. So what was it like then and you've been so many firsts for black women in general, but what was that like and what has it been like to be such a trailblazer and now these really important moments? Oh God, it was great. I remember I was in LA and it was an audition that came to me on a Friday night to go in on a Saturday. And I had this guy that I was dating, and he was in town. And I didn't want to go. And I, 'cause I just wanted to hang with him, and I was like, that's just too much work to just, you know, 'cause I don't like to go and wing it, right? And why are you auditioning on a Saturday? So I was just complaining about it. And it's so funny because he turned out to be not a good guy. But he made me go. And so I, you know, in my mind, it's like, you know, sometimes you just never know, right? But he was like, no, just go, just go. You know, we'll do something after. So I wound up going and then two weeks later I was on a plane to Prague to screen test. It was like a 8 hour screen test in the studio with a big ass predator. I had to shoot a gun and kind of push him around and did a bunch of scenes and by the end of the day I knew I had the job and then two weeks after that was on the plane back to Prague for 6 months shoot. Wow. And so it was very it's almost like I didn't have time to really let it sink in what it was. Because I was so kind of displaced and didn't wasn't really ready to just uproot my life and go. And but obviously I did. And it was extremely grueling. You know, I always don't envy action star thriller stars because it's a different type of.

"As we look back on in her shoes this year, and the women who inspire us. Here's the cut's editor in chief, Lindsay people's Wagner, in conversation with actress, sonali fan. I remember even thinking, I was like, wow, why do they this is surprising? Are they looking for a black woman for this? You know, what is it about and I love the fact that I was, you know, black women kind of saved the earth. Welcome to in her shoes. I'm Lindsay people's Wagner editor in chief of the cook. On this podcast, we talked to ambitious women about how far they've come and where they're going next. So now, Ethan is in New York City born and bred actor and director. She started out as a teen guest starring on sitcoms like family matters in moesha before becoming a staple in rom coms like love and basketball. The best man and brown sugar. She is also appeared in blockbusters like blade and alien versus predator, where as she's pointed out before, she is one of the only black women to save the world in the movie. We spoke about her embracing natural hair, her directorial debut and how much she loves meditation and self care. So I'm excited for you all to listen. Hi sana, thank you so much for joining us today. Hi. It is my pleasure. I love your hair. Thank you. You're great. Yours too. So in Netflix, 2018 film Napoli ever after, you played a woman who really only becomes true to herself when she embraces her natural hair. Can you tell us about what brought you to that role? I mean, it was such a important and I think critical role for so many young women of color like myself to see someone go through that journey. What really made you feel like you had to be part of that project and to walk me through the casting and what really was attracting you to this story itself. You know, hair in that movie, which was a book. It was a very big book and it had been around for a long time. It was very beloved. Is a metaphor. It was kind of like a synonym to your authentic self. Your nappy, nappy hair being who you really are. And so. I just loved how it was this woman who was always trying to conform and do what society has told her that women should do. That black women should do should be. And it was never anything that was coming from who she truly was. It was always something that was coming from outside of herself. Hair being such a huge thing for women across all racial lines. We were taught, you know, that long hair means your desirable, you have to be desirable for the prince to want you. Your worst comes from the prince wanting you, not about what you want. From the time we're little girls, we read these fairytales about, you know, Snow White and Cinderella and it's all about from the time we're really little all about being chosen that are worth comes from being chosen. And having to conform in order to be chosen, and so for me, it was way deeper than just hair. Hair was just kind of a metaphor for, you know what? I'm going to step into who I truly am. I'm going to find out who I truly am who I authentically am. And I'm going to choose. And part of the reason why we kind of, you know, I love the idea of her not ending up with anybody at the end. Because she it's a love story about falling in love with yourself. And you know, sometimes that's hard in this society when we as women and especially black women are told over and over and over again, that who we are is not okay and that you have to fit into some kind of box. So anyway, that was what really drew me to the role. And then, you know, obviously it was so great because you got just as an actress, I got to really just do all of the range of emotions going from kind of a repressed quote unquote good girl who's never kind of really succeeding in life to, you know, just a real, real breakdown where she had to find out who she truly was and what she wanted. There's so much that so powerful about this movie and I think honestly what hit home for so many of us watching at home, we felt what you were feeling. It was this visceral reaction of you shaving your head and it felt there's so much emotions and I think specifically for black women around having short hair and cutting your hair. I remember as a child, you know, when you go get your trim, you would freak out, if the hair stylist did more than a trim that was such a big deal. Or you know, wanting a short hair style, I was even having a conversation with a girlfriend the other day and she wanted to go for a short hairstyle and the conversation turned to what would her partner think? And I'm like, who cares? Do whatever you want. And so I just wanted to hear your thoughts now that it's been time has passed on that scene and what your real life was like also outside of that as well in shaving your own head. Yeah, I mean, it's interesting because, you know, as an actor, being in the business, my whole, you know, practically, you know, my whole adult life. And, you know, we're just now talking about having black hair dressers, like this year, you know, like with the whole time's up. And after Black Lives Matter. But I was, you know, having to deal with going to, you know, other countries where, you know, you ask for somebody who knows how to deal with black hair. Everybody says they do. My go to thing was, well, do you know how to use a stove with a hot comb? And then they'd be like, no, because not that I even used that. But you don't know how that comb did. You know how to black hair, right? But you know, that's why a lot of us black women suffered because they, you know, go models have had to deal with it over the years ago and our hair requires a completely different kind of regimen. You know that. Can't be having heat on it. It can't be getting wet every day. And so, you know, weaves were a big thing for me, many people are like, you have a hair. Why do you wear weep? Because I wouldn't have been there. If I, you know, had to get it straightened every day for whatever part I'm playing to have continuity. And so it's an ongoing thing that I think all women deal with with their hair. But I think especially black women, it's like, okay, what am I going to do next? And we both have braids, but I'm sure, you know, you talk to all your girlfriends. Like, what should I do? You know, or should I get next, right? And so, you know, it's great. I am so happy that braids are in now. It's such a thing now. Because they are a protective style. Anyway, I digress. I was ready. Sana was ready to shave my head at that point because after years and years of just dealing with all of the demands of having coarser hair, quote unquote nappy hair, there's different degrees of mappiness, but like, you know, you get your hair iron,.

"I got the job excited because it's a coming of age story about a young girl who is finding out who she is and finding out who she is through her voice finding her authentic voice. And isn't that the question for all of us. Yeah yeah. that's that's the goal. I think that's like my ch- the underground theme that i'm that it seems like i'm 'cause i'm trying to find that for myself as well. That's beautiful that's also something that i think. We're all searching for in wondering and questioning and constantly trying to find an answer to that. You know whether there would be pinpointed. Answer to that or not I think that that's something that we all think about that I wanna talk about succession since the new trailer just droughts. I'm obsessed with succession. i'm very so what was it like working on season three and he tells anything about your character just here experience overall. Yeah so i got the offer right in the fall in we were nowhere near outside of quarantine and i remember saying to a friend i said i would like to have you know something in the can you know a job in the. Can you know soon. But i was thinking that stone. And i had to get on a plane within a matter weeks to go to new york in the middle of the quarantine so that was very scary for me And it was a trip to work with all of the p. p. e. and it was like swimming underwater with weights and yet i was a huge fan of the show. I think it's some of the best writing and acting on tv and I know that to be part of it and it was a great experience in. I got to go to new york several times over the last year and work with some this great actors. It reminded me of you know my early days working in the theater. Just that kind of level of commitment and just depth you know and so two super grateful super grateful for the opportunity had a great time. Despite you know despite the you know the pandemic of it all on very exciting to see bad speaking of theater you've done so much work in theatre. Dc yeah the difference between the the work in your process. Is that anything different between stage film and do you prefer the other aspirations to do their work. Yeah i love theatre. Feel happiest when i'm on stage For me it's so all encompassing the eight shows a week that it. It has to be a role that is just undeniable. That i cannot refuse anything less than that. I would rather be on a movie set because you you can have a life round. But the that there's nothing like the exchange of energy between the audience and you as the character in the fact that you get to live the character from beginning to end every night and not out of order that is very satisfying for an actor. It's different every night. It's exciting and it's just you know there's nothing that can can touch that you just you just said something interesting about Having having a life in obviously you know being filmed tv theater. not schedules. must be crazy. always hectic Tell me a little bit about. Just how you're able to deal with it. Both like mentally emotionally. I know there must be a lot of stress or like am. I getting this part or may not And you've been in the industry for so long and so how do you feel like you've been able to grow in that area. And what is it like. Because i also feel like people really glamorize it in a way that it's probably different in reality. Yeah it is different. I mean you know any freelance artist it is. There takes a lot of face because after every single job on how much success you've had you don't know what the next thing is until you know the next thing is and so when i chose to be a zun therapist in my short it was because i know that experienced very well i've had lots there be ahead life. Coaching and lean on my friends A lot of people are like how can you be friends with your competition. But i find that only. They know what i'm going through. I spoke to this woman. Who kind of just won't say name but Just got a lot of success Last year it's she's having a hard time because it's just like overnight. And i said please just reach out. She's thinking about quitting and you've got to reach out to reach out to reach out to me reach out to somebody else because it is no joke. That amount of faith sundays. You don't have the face and then on top of it. There's the level of scrutiny. You know it's just I feel very very blessed yet. I do not ever envy anybody. Success because every at every level of success in this business or the smaller biggest star in the world it comes with its huge challenges. And there's just still you're always proving yourself there's always rejection. There's always scrutiny And that's why. I tell young people who are getting into the business or any kind of freelancing a writer journalist you know you have to really really want to do it because it's if you can do anything else do it because it can be very emotionally abusive yet. I mean i think that's for most creative positions. I feel that way about fashion. So i get it I want to end on There are people always love to hear any like wellness things I've read that. You're big on meditation and just talking about mental health. Sell any like any favorite wellness things you're doing or that you wanna talk about. Yes care People talk about self care like it's a catch phrase but it really will like if you're in line with yourself and you're taking care of yourself everything outside of you people will treat you different if you are actually in what i say self care that means like you know taking time to yourself where you're not on your phone and doing your version of meditation. Walking outside getting a foot massage taking a bath. These are little things that you're doing for yourself and when you do them for yourself it's almost like it becomes a magnet for other people to treat you with care if you can't treat yourself with care then you're not gonna get it from the outside. It's a weird kind of way to think about it. But that's i found that to be very true. And i'm a huge believer in meditation. Everybody can learn how to meditate you. All you gotta do. Is google meditate meditation. I do transcendental meditation years ago. I had a very head. A lot of trauma. Had a best friend. Suddenly die along with many other things that happen all at once.

"The idea of shaving my head because you know who knows i mean i i. I didn't know what shape head i had. I didn't know of dance or had a cone head larry. Sims was a big celebrity hairstylist. I convinced him to do the movie. And i every day i asked him because there was a d day. Because you couldn't go back you had to do. We had to do it all in one. Take what you see in the movie is real like you're seeing the actually shaved my head and I asked him over and over again. I said you think you think. I have a funny shape. He's like no baby. You have a beautiful head. You can tell. And he was like yes. You can tell you know you. Just the day i did it ashamed it. He ran into the bathroom in with tears in his eyes and he said got. I said you didn't know you said no. You never know every effort shape ten so it was. You know we had scheduled the day that we're gonna shoot that scene and it was very nerve wracking not only for me but for the whole crew because we knew we had to get it right. You had to get right in one. Take they rigged camera behind the the mirror. So i was actually looking into a mirror. It didn't. I didn't see the camera which was really helpful and That day i found some music. That really helped me get into just her state of mind and her emotional state Which was great in. On that particular set the sound person inbetween takes we would blast music. That was just you know. Different sets have different kinds of things that go on and so i just asked him to blast music during the scene and it was really wonderful And you know everybody was kind of a triumphant emotional. The whole set was crying because it was kind of cathartic for everybody know the symbol of the hair. Like i'm just gonna let go everything. Outside of just who i am and so and i said to myself i said you know if i hate it. A have wigs. Wigs are into new people. Change your wigs like they change your earrings lace all the lace fronts. And so i was like. I have just wear wigs for you know a little bit and then i'll put braids in my hair when it grows out a little bit and Surprisingly i kept shaving it i loved it. I had so much male attention. Men i don't it was like they were obsessed with it. It was crazy it was the opposite of what we do know. I've really was. Because i mean i had ex-boyfriends calling me texts amazing. That will come rub. Rub your head. I was really shocked and Anyway so it's been three years in ever since once. It got to that kind of awkward. There's always that middle stage when it gets to be a certain words it's not that cute Or at least acted get cute because it does take a lot of a lot of energy to for natural. Natural hair's just as yes but we're demanding. Yeah they have a lot of amazing youtube videos tutorials. And i would watch them and not do it. I mean i google twist out every other night and then i'm like this looks wonderful. I don't have the time for this. I don't have the time or the The energy enough and so then once it got long enough. I just started wearing braid styles all different kinds and then when i would work i would just put it. You know. break it down. And then we're wigs and so it's actually longer than it's ever been. Every single day i fantasize about shaving it off again. Oh wow actually my mother who keeps saying no. no no. isn't that that such a mother. She's like no mom hair such a mom thing but yes i'm in palm springs right now. It's a high of like one fifteen today. This'll be a good time to have a shaved. Gonna say i'm going to take it back even further but i mean love and basketball alien versus predator. You so many amazing amazing credits You were extremely phenomenal in alien vs predator. And you've held the record. Highs opening weekend for movie led by a black woman until lupita was in two thousand nineteen us And i bring this up sickly because sci-fi is not generally a genre that black women really have a lot of you know taking up space in and survive and thrive and figure out a way i think to create a different language that isn't already available especially in the two thousands. So what was it like then and you know being you've been so many i for black women in general but what was that like in. What has it been like to be such a trailblazer in now. These really important moments. Oh god it was great. I remember i was in la and it. It was an audition. That came to me on a friday night to go in on a saturday and i had this guy that i was dating and he was in town and i didn't wanna go and i 'cause i just wanted to hang with him and i was like that's just too much work to just you know tech 'cause i don't like to go and wing it right and why are you auditioning on a saturday right. So i was just complaining about it. And it's so funny. Because he turned out to be not a good guy but he made me go and so in. My mind is like you know. Sometimes you just never know rain Just go you know. We'll do something. After so i wound up going and then two weeks later. I was on a plane to prague to screen test. It was like eight hour screen test in in the studio with a big ass predator. I had to shoot a gun and push around and did a bunch of scenes and by the end of the day. I had the job and then two weeks after that was on the plane back to prague for six six months shoe though it was very. It's almost like i didn't have time to really sink in what it was because i was so kind of displaced and didn't wasn't really to just up my life and go and But obviously i did. And it was extremely grueling. I was you know. I always don't envy action thriller stars because it's a different type of rigorousness Being scared for six months straight being in panic for six presented basically your reality. You're going to work to be scared. you know. And it.

"Welcome to in her shoes. I'm lindsay people's wagner editor and chief on this podcast. We talked to him. They should swimming about how far they've come and where they're going next. Sonali is in new york city born inbred actor and director. She started out as a teen guest. Starring on sitcoms like family matters and militia before becoming a staple in rom coms like love and basketball the best man and brown sugar. She's also appeared in blockbusters like blade an alien versus predator whereas she's playing up before she's one of the only black woman to save the world when the movie bespoke about her embracing natural hair for direct royal debut. And how much love. Meditation and self care. So i'm excited for you all to listen heist enough. Thank you so much for joining us today. High it is my pleasure. I love your hair. Thank you too so in netflix. Two thousand eighteen film napoli ever after you played who really only becomes shooter who south when she embraces her natural hair Can you tell us about what brought you to that role. I mean it was such a important. I think critical role for so many young women like myself To see someone go through that journey. What really made you feel like. You had to be part of that project in the walk me through the casting and what really wasn't tracking to the story itself you know hair in that movie which was a book. It was a very big book and it had been around for a long time. It was very beloved is a metaphor. It was kind of like sent synonym to your authentic self. Your nappy nappy hair. Being who you really are and so I just loved how it was this woman who is always trying to conform and Do what society has told her. That women should do That black women should do should be and it was never anything that was coming from who she truly was. It was always something that was coming from outside herself. Hair being Such a huge thing for women across all racial lines. We're taught that long hair means you're desirable you have to be desirable for the prince to want you. Your worst comes from the prince wanting you not about what you want from the time. Where little girls we these fairy tales about you know snow white and cinderella in. It's all about the time really little all about being chosen that are worth coast from being chosen and having to conform in order to be chosen and so for me it was way deeper than just hair hair was just kind of a metaphor for what i'm going to step into who i truly am. I'm gonna find out who i truly am who Offensively and i'm going to choose and part of the reason by we kind of you know i love the idea of her not ending up with anybody at the end. 'cause she choose she's the love is a love story about falling in love with yourself and you know. Sometimes that's hard in this society win we as women And especially black women are told over and over and over again that who we are is not okay and that you have to fit into some kind of box so anyway that was what really drew me to the role and then obviously it was. It was so great because you got just as an actress. I got to really just do all of the range of you know emotions going from kind of a repressed quote unquote good girl. Who's you know never really succeeding in life to you. Know just a real real breakdown where she had to find out who she truly was and what she wanted. There's so much that's so powerful about this movie. I think honestly what hit home for so many of us watching it home. We felt what you were feeling. Was this visceral reaction of you. Shaving your head in it felt. There's so much emotions. Anything specifically for black women Around having short hair and cutting your hair. I remember as a child like you know when you go get your trim you would freak out. If aside was did more than a trim that was such a big Or you know. Wanting a short hairstyle. I've even having a conversation with a girlfriend the other day and she wanted to go for a short hairstyle and the conversation turned to let her partner thing. And i'm like who cares. Do whatever you want. And so. I just wanted to hear your thoughts. Now that it's been the time has passed on. You know that scene in which a real life was like also outside of that as well in in shaving your own head. Yeah i mean i It's interesting because you know as an actor. Being in the business might whole you know practically you know my whole adult life and you know just now talking about having back hairdressers by this year you know like with the whole time is up and after black lives matter but i was. You know having to deal with going to you know other countries where you know you ask for. Somebody knows how to deal with black hair. Everybody says they do my go to thing was. We'll do you know how to use a stove with a hot comb and then they'd be like No because not that. I even use that. You don't know what the hot comb. The you know like air right but you know that's why a lot of Lot of us black women suffered because they you know go models have had to deal with it over the years ago and they are hair requires a completely different kind of regimen. You know that can't be having heat on. It can't be getting wet every day. And so you know weaves were a big thing from many people have hair. why do you wear. We've because i wouldn't have any area if i you know had to get it straightened every day for whatever part i'm playing to have continuity and so it's an ongoing thing that i think all women deal with with their hair but i think especially black women. It's like okay. What am i going to do next. And we both have braids. But i'm sure like you know you talk to argument girlfriends go. Should i get next right and so you know it's great. I am so happy that braids are in. Now it's such a thing now Because they are protective style. Anyway i digress. I was ready. Sonali was ready to shave my head at that point because after years and years of just the dealing with all of the demands of having coarser hair coat nappy hair. There's different degrees of nominees. But like you know you get your hair flat ironed thing. You don't want to go to the gym. I mean it's just a whole. That is really this because i i used to love to get my hair. Flat irony flat iron like once every two weeks. But then you like you time it so you know you wanted to stay straight and silky bouncy for the first five days but you don't want to stay away from jim too long so you have to time it. Okay i'll get it. I'll go to the gym. The last couple of days before i get it redone so i i was at a point in my life where it.

If you wanna take away like three writes from us it's called just like just a couple rights. We don't deserve it's alright recently. I've had a lot of keep that are about like gay cliche things we've talked about how people say not this all the time. Whatever so this is another one of those To quote my new favourite grace jones song. I've done it again. My keep it to every conversation between gay men who are between the ages of twenty and thirty nine starting with the phrase high gay. I don't know if you know what this is. Meg stelter who is a comedian. You've probably seen in a supporting role on the show hacks on hbo and in my dreams or on every front facing twitter video ever grow. She's yeah she's sort of like the the the most popular front facing twitter comedian. Who's also a real stand-up comedian. As are obsessed with her. And she had this one video go viral where it was mocking corporate pride and how they address gay consumers and it begins with this woman. Meghan character saying hi gay to the camera that in a sort of blank stupid way. Alright well she did it in a blink stupid way so guess who picked it up immediately the gay community everywhere you go. And i've been to san francisco pride. I mean fire island now. I'll be mark days next week. Guys what is wrong with me. Oh miss carmen. Sandiego i know not miss carmen. Serotonin let me tell you. Here's the thing. I'm all for everybody latching onto a female comedians viral moment. I mean it's truly truly viral. I can't. I can't escape it. But my son i have heard it every day. Hundreds of times thousands of times. So now if i hear it again i need you to know if you catch my eye. I will be driven to murder. Only murders on this podcast. Yes you know the moment in a lifetime. Movie where the clinton rob lowe's is changes and you realize you're in the wrong man. That's me okay. Okay you do sort of a young rob lowe quality. okay. I've never heard of better compliment in my life. Unfortunately now my serotonin is replenished. J. fucking see here's gays just right now. I think we're in a moment where they love having everything in common. We love wearing the exact same shorts. We love wearing the same shirt and now it's really infiltrated speech. Mcm's shorts an jacques shirt total. Oh my god. So it's like hi gave this community thing where we all have agreed to say it. And it's let's just meaning and lost off funny to me and i also think a critic about gay man is. We usually are really good at being funny. An unclear ways so please. If you're going to say the cliche thing then say three more originally funny things afterwards. Please just just for me just for me. You think the proliferation of social media and morges being able to connect with one another is that lost to create yes Within our own communities with our friend groups like even us who live in la new york like who were supposed to begin the like The literati of the gay community like one sort of leading the pack right. You could sit with them like here one of them say like what are these brain dead phrases and it's like maybe you're supposed to be funny right now. He's supposed to innovate. The job of funny has changed. And like yeah. It's not about sort of valuing the originality of comments anymore so much as it's the the pass around vibe of whatever it is like we can just use it and take from it. We're turning straight men. What is high gay but quoting anchorman at the lunch table. Right the stepbrothers references do add it to the. Keep it in graphic of all the things that we're tired of hearing gay people say you know just number six high gay. And it's not that. I don't like having things in common with every queer person around me or whatever. We've just done it too many times. Let's move on from this thing. I think we've exceeded our desire to have community. Now we're at this point where saturated we're done the original again be rich. I know y'all are here. Everybody gay fine we got here. It's twenty twenty. One made me laugh girl. That's what he was doing before when he was said in closeted war. I long for that. Getting you know like you also just kit associated with fashion anymore. I guess that's true. Well i don't know about that. Every time i go to like You know a queer dance party or something. Somebody usually a process me with something and the gender blending community is the party white whitegate. Because you know what i think.

I was like a newbie to hollywood but i was not necessarily you know a beginner actress and so people always kind of see people success but they don't know all the rejection that went into to this day you know. I don't envy anybody. Success any at any level. Because we don't know what's on the other side what it took to get there. Yeah so the would Rick familia wrote the wood and that was another wind.

I went in for robin. I'm sure that knowing tae and the chemistry that we had in addition helped to get that and then love basketball. Gina wrote love basketball with omar. In mind we were dating and didn't say anything. So i was listening while he had the role and because people have different ideas of what chemistry is people have to me coming from the theater. You can you make your chemistry. I'm not a believer in. Oh if you're dating you don't have chemistry or if you're not you know there was all these beliefs and i knew that it could jeopardize me possibly getting the role if they knew dating so we just kept it under wraps. She didn't find out until the middle of shooting was like. Wait a second close. She wanted a basketball player. Who could act. The only reason why i got and this is where i feel like. There's some kind of destiny involved. Because the only reason why. I even got a shot to audition for eleven basketball's because one day she years before she even had her deal. She had a a table. Read for the script to hear it out loud in front of an audience and the actress got sick. Who was supposed to read monica and she had heard about me and got my number and tracked down and was like can you take her place. And i was like okay. Fine you know. Somebody said the script was good And we did it becoming from doing a lot of those kind of readings. I gave my all and i really put you know. I've created the character and then she went off got her deal a couple years later. Were wasn't really seeing a lot of actresses. She was seeing mainly basketball players. But because i had done the reading she let me come in because she liked my reading and so those are the kinds of things where you're like wait a second. That is crazy. How there were so many near misses. It's so cool. When actors like allow us to see behind the scenes in the process of how they got their role. So that's still still interesting and especially for that role. I think about you and gabrielle. Union and regina hall and these people who i consider these black legacy actors that were working at what i think is the peak of our genre and how many black women you inspired to continue acting and start acting because they saw themselves in you myself even watching love and basketball and being like oh my god you can know what you want. You can be aggressive and still be feminine woman. All of that was was moving for me. And i kind of want to ask you. Do you feel that legacy still like do you feel do you feel the footprint. That's left on black. Hollywood and how the culture has changed because of it. When i was coming up there. Were like five of us. You know i'm friends with a lot of them. Are real regina and gab. And nia we're all we all get on the phone and so it's nice every now and then to kind of talk about like. Wow this was really cool that we were the ones that were able to do something different than the history of film you know but you don't. You're just living your life like everybody else. Every day it has. It brings its challenges. I'm not walking around thinking you know when people say what's a movie means to them that makes me feel good and because a twitter i know whenever is playing me feel good and it just makes me wanna keep moving forward. I really truly believe in the power of representation of being able to see yourself reflected. i was around as a little kid. My mom was in the original albany company and she was on broadway with earth kit. And i'm stephanie mills. They she did to with the kid. I was like a toddler behind the scenes and watching that show over and over. And then stephanie mills she was. My mother was in the chorus. For the whiz on broadway and so i got to see a little toddler. Black women reflected to me. And so i definitely know that that benefited me in terms of a like a subconscious belief that it was possible. And so. I'm really happy about this moment. Now after black lives matter you know we are requiring now that we you know there's a minimum of representation because it's just it's so important to self worth and self esteem to see yourself reflected..

"It's nice to have him in this video as opposed to win. I was younger in high school going to high school. You know like seeing like enjoying eminem eminem's albums or so great But you know jag hall's not communist every other you know it's starring in films where he's like i'm going to be better than all these other black rappers and jack harlow gives me like. He was nardi goofy and he reminds us in every single song that he's getting cuter so high school and now he's his own. Those lips that slightly greasy hair. He looks just like paul mccallion. Who oh yes twitter zone. I just want to say it's gotta be hard for a little nasdaq's because i feel like the okay. The nature of this video is so like dirty and scandal or whatever but for the people it's intended for the reaction is basically like lulls like we enjoy whatever and then. There's only this other side of the chasm which is extreme outrage. And i almost wish could find some a happy medium of Listeners who are like properly excited and not that he doesn't have that. But i'm saying it's it's meant to titillate and for the people it's meant to titillate where like ll job. I will say that. It reminds me of when madonna did her poor instagram. Where she said you know did it. First about the kissing britney and christina a kiss to men the bt awards days and this video reminds me of that too is not to say that madonna wasn't pushing an envelope. You know in the nineties you know especially with you. Know her her videos But there's something about this just just feels more dangerous. Yeah less less complete. It's completely for shock value too but it's shock value. It feels like it's helping change a conversation. And i feel like it's been a while since madonna has done something for shock value. That was to change the conversation. You know it's she's free pars past. The sex era is what. I'm saying because the kiss. What britney and christina was just titillation it same thing is kissing two black men on the stage of the bt awards. I remember watching that live. And just being like this feels like a shadow of a shadow of a shadow of the former madonna of super pointed agitation. But yeah and there's the whole point that that entire kiss was by mtv then it went to justin timberlake reaction because the whole point of it was to see like what britney's ex-boyfriend thought about it. Right right yea christina kiss and it's not like he gave them to stay in. It was like shock and fetishes ation still going and that's how you know that this is entirely different but shout out little nasdaq's for knowing his position analogy and continuing to push the envelope. Meanwhile knowing that he has opportunity so shout out to that negative baby who at rolling loud. You know the music festival in miami on sunday with on a feary random. Yeah about about gay people and aids which makes no guy dan sets. He says if you didn't show up today were hiv aids or any of them deadly sexual transmitted diseases. That'll make you die in two to three weeks. Put yourself phone lighter up. let's start that. Can we start. Can we start there man. I ister aids killing intuitive. Three weeks like are you andrew dice. Clay this is the oldest whole heart like lily not even any terrifying like aids. Melodrama do diet two to three weeks bitch bill and also i hate shout out if he didn't show up with hiv has gone. Leave your shit at home. Your it makes no sense ends at home as good as you should and my idea at home so i can't drink tonight. Also first of all you are at a festival. One hundred thousand people mostly unvaccinated hanging in yalo dine in two to three weeks. Okay ali ali also not even the gaetano tation like it is incredibly dangerous for a black man to say that given how hard the hiv aids effected heterosexual black people as well and continues to its ignorant. Incredibly i'm literally gratified in some way that these comments are as particularly super dated sounding as they are. You know once upon a time you'd hear like homophobic comments and just think while they're homophobic now i mean it truly sounds comments from thirty five years ago. I mean it's just super weird that someone that young can sound so old and out of touch. I would be honoured if you had a fresh. I'm a phobic take. I'm dying to get all the toxic. Oh come on. Please fresh anything. I guess he was called out of course by madison among others For the ignorance and the fact that yet in an era where we're worried about people needing to get vaccinated. Yes continue to spread. Misinformation about disease is really just stupid. It's even worse. Maybe bring tori out on stage which he also did which will get. Ooh is the worst part about. This is so he goes on to say and shouts out to young. Who aren't taking the parking lot. So that sounds anecdotal. What were you doing before you. What were you doing. Mine why is it fresh at the forefront of the front lobe. Okay what happened what happened. I guess frustrated. Did he like pull into a cvs. One time and see like how. Come to front mine.

The Latest News On The War In Yemen

"War in yemen has been one of the grimmer stories unfolding anywhere on earth for roughly six years now for most of that time it has struggled fool widespread and much more so this year as the rest of the world was preoccupied with the obvious. One of the reasons that yemen has been under reported is that it has been difficult and dangerous to report from monocle. Twenty-fourth beirut correspondent. Leyla moulana alone has recently been to yemen and joins me now a layla. First of all the logistics at this point of getting in and out of yemen. How do you do it. The logistics arch freaky and there are multiple ways now. there awesome flights operating into yemen. And on the way in the way it was done. was through cairo's flying into cairo. And then going into an applet. Who'd you in the south now the flights of neuron a few times a week. They don't necessarily ron time. All hugely overbooked. Of course with people want to go on another extremely expensive as what happened with us. Was that when we lost one can can you then looking out as well because these flights are constantly moving. So it's very unsure when you go in how exactly oh gutting be able to get out and in all case We had to change into a land route option and dry options country which took days because the flights simply went operational on the way out so not necessarily the stable of travel. Itinerary will clearly once in yemen which parts of it. Were you actually able to see so. I was in shabwah. Governorate which is in the south is traditionally very Very tribal governor. At and at the moment it's now the only southern governor this fact compete under the control of the central government it was until the end of two thousand and nineteen ponti occupied by the some transitional council which is the nutritional southern separatists of southern yemen. But they were pushed out at the end of two thousand and nineteen alongside the shabani elite forces which were essentially local mercenaries hired and backed by the united arab emirates. Who of fighting that. They had been fighting against al qaeda terrorists forces that they will push out the two thousand eighteen so it is now backsitting under government control but of course at still a lot of controls over the different parties that some things. That isn't the right decision. So in that part of yemen is life relatively stable and peaceful on the one hand is driving around the capital city act. They're all going up. There are shop opening people walking around. That does seem to be a bishop. Prosperity come back and stuff. People was antony there were jobs hidden now. We can't find jobs in other areas with coming his to work so in on that side of things know that building tourist complex building hotels that very hopeful that the level of stability having now even things like went scoreless Address the that level of civility means that they will have increasing prosperity. The problem of course is firstly that the country as many said to me is still seen as water but also there are a lot of problems with stability they currently have posited is because there is oil. it's one of the three governorates that has a lot of oil in yemen and the governor has made a deal with the central government that they get a twenty percent cut. That goes straight to the governor at so they can invest in rebuilding infrastructure analytical houses in the governor at. That's a great deal. But a lot of people in southfield they should be getting even more not so much of it should be going to the central government that trying to encourage more western oil companies to come back in as also lots of liquid natural gas that the moment there is just one australian oil company functioning on The moment there is just one austrian oil company who is currently can shop. Hope that increase was fired. You enjoy -tunities Very unstable as i say with the political situation still going around. They're all active. Frontlines from the nearest one is in marriage to the north. That's fine with the season is also still frontlines. The southern traditional council as well given everything you've said about life in shaw born those soins reasonably encouraging signs of some sort of return to normality. Does it feel like the government is itself a self contained country at this point. Is there much talk about trying to put yemen back together. So this is the big question with some people are saying shove what is the example of how of federalist yemen could work. You know in which the different governorates level tournament. A certain amount of money to run that own concerns are loyal to a central government and of course contribute troops to a central government. Which is what's currently happening. Lots of shift one young men going and fighting own the nearest frontline that the government has up in a way in tons for its relationship that they have on say. The governor is a loyal to central. Government has a good working relationship barron which she has been given this level of autonomous theoretically that is hopeful future. The problem is that people are fighting for different reasons. This is something people kept saying to me that you know there are some people who had the interest of the money interest of the oil. The pool of calls many people saying that the uae and the arabia of that those reasons. But then you've got some transitional council bay come from a long line of people who believe that the south of the. Nfl is completely different from the nose. Should be united and shouldn't be wrong from the north which causes where at the central government is based although i should say that most of the people who make up the central government actually are outside the country right now because he ended so constantly moving on stable But seth me they're southerners new feel wouldn't at shouldn't be enrolled in the as the south bend. Of course you have. The who fees. Who are the shiite iran backed militia. Who are still fighting in. How occupied a lot of the north of the moment. They are running at sanaa city at the moment still and they of course flight final ideology and copy one of my money as many people said to me that it's not just about these business relationships on the national resources so while the idea the united yemen too. Many people is hugely appealing. And so many people that saying can you with retired war. We want peace. We want elections. We just want to get on with our lives and have yemen stop being associated with the idea of this ongoing horrific war which the united nations is called the greatest humanitarian crisis currently in the world but whether or not that's realistic the number of political issues currently butting up against each other both in tunnel and the proxy wars being fooled by international powers is is another question is obviously not short of problems but it was also burden this year as every country on earth walls by the covid nineteen pandemic. Were you able to get much sense of how that has affected life in yemen or how yemen with the resources it has has been able to handle it so the area i was in has extreme yellow covid figures at least in tons of what's being counted now going in i thought perhaps they simply aren't being counted all covered up in some way. One of the arguments is of course. It doesn't really make sense for the government to be covering up coach. Vic is because it's one way of them getting access to aid. Amy because so much aid money to other projects has been coastal this year because it will bring directed towards codex but in the area. I was in shock whistle. The numbers are extremely loads. They do have a new testing center in the capital of. Its just couple of months old. That's incompletely funded and built by the saudis very center. It isn't getting much use because they don't seem to be that many people coming in now elsewhere in yemen. The problem has been much worse. Part of the reason might be that there is not that much movement in the south. Where's the north in ogden. In saana a further away from that is a lot of moving there and we. Stephanie seen horrific numbers of people really struggling particularly ibp comps. Where who's it spreads wildfire. Now i did meet with several people who said that in the prisons. The situation is getting much worse as well. I spoke a couple of prisoners families who said that they the dominant co code in prison and the conditions were horrendous. They were not being freed Unlike many prisons seeing around the world who've been given a thorough from prison while the coronavirus has been spreading shouts great concern. The big problem really is as i say. That was not much of it to be seen at the moment. But the very worried about Of course we know that in the summer does seeing that the transmission. I'll in the winter. Once that construe immune systems are the health service simply The local hospital is absolutely overwhelmed. Ready mary i was having a den. Gay deng massive outbreak which is affecting a lot of young children in particular from the rural areas. You have to travel hundreds of kilometers to get to the hospital. So although right now where i was as i say not that big a problem if it does hit in the winter and docs saying they're concerned about that. It would be really really devastating. The muslim needs right now. Layla milana allen in beirut. Thanks for joining us.
