CNN Bans On-Air Drinking During New Year's Eve Broadcasts
"Again, one of those shows that not exactly what you signed up for, but it's Monday and that's the way it is. Also on CNN, I watched the history of sitcoms. The other night oh, by the way, big news. The head of CNN. Chris licked, my told you is going to do great things at that network. He's still making sweeping changes. You know, he got rid of Brian stelter as we know, the guy who also the guy who was jerking off during the Zoom call, Jeffrey too, but he's gone. He took Don lemon's prime time shell away, and now he's really changing things. It was announced that there will be no more drinking alcohol during CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast. Doesn't Chris lick no, that was the only reason why any of us tuned in to see Andy Collin lit up with Anderson Cooper who could barely handle a shot. We used to have a drunk Kathy Griffin with a lot of fun people, Don Lennon was loaded, dancing, it's fun. Give him one day a year to be assholes. Well, seen in their assholes, all year long. But you know, one day is not that big. But no, he cut it out. No more alcohol. So I'm watching this show, the sitcom story, you know, no show ever, ever says anything nice about rosemary. You guys know rosemary. I don't think all of you do. You might act like you do, but you don't. Those of you under 40, 45, probably have no clue. Rosemary was great on the Dick Van Dyke show. She was married to Maury Amsterdam on the show. Van Dyke was something you always want. And he'd walk in and trip over the sofa, a little cushion, and it got home and had his Martine. It was one of those shows, whatever. It was easy viewing, you hear the dogs? just as loud. But rosemary at 5 years old, she was offered a 7 year contract and became a radio star at NBC radio network. And then she made a bunch of films. At 5. Could you imagine what her me too stories were about? I mean, she's dead now, but could you imagine the stories she could tell you about running around desks and who was trying to nail her? This is back when women were secretaries and housewives on librarians. I also saw a bunch of stuff how great to watch Ed Asner as Lou grant on the Mary Tyler Moore show, saw a clip where he got all hot and bothered by Mary's friend, wrote a morgen star, remember Valerie Harper house I loved rhoda. Rona was like before Laverne on Laverne and Shirley. Before Laverne defazio, rona Morgan stern was the first girl on a sitcom that, as an Italian kid, or as a city kid, you'd go, I mean, I grew up a Long Island, but I still had a little bit of Brooklyn in me. You see that girl and you go, oh yeah, that's my cousins. That's our Friends. I know wrote a Morgan stern. Jewish or Italian same thing. Laverne de fazio, same thing. I didn't grow up with Cindy's. I grew up with Laverne's. And I grew up with rhoda's not Mary Tyler Moore's. And it was wonderful to see her because then you said, oh my God, there's a chance for all of us to get work. It's a lot similar, it's very similar to what black people felt when suddenly they thought to appear. There are people began to appear in sitcoms. You know, build caused by was huge and I spy and it made them go, oh my God, we can do this. One of our own is there. So I get that. But there's one part where Lou, Lou grant walks around rhoda as she walks into the newsroom. And he goes, you, you're different. I like you. Then he goes behind it, and he says, I like it from back here too. An old Valerie Harper can say is, I think he's about to kick my tie is what a different world. Thinking back when I was a kid, I had no idea that kind of talk bothered women. Because I saw my mother and my sisters laugh at those comments. So how could any of us think that what they were saying was improper? You know what I mean? And then Betty White, they showed Betty White. I know Betty White way older than me, but I can't explain it. I had a crush on him. I remember being a teenager. And thinking, you know what? When I never married, it would be great to be married to a woman like Betty White. Look at that dimple on her left cheek, you can hold a couple water in that dimple. She's so funny. She loves her men. I just felt like Betty's the best. And that was a kid. I was right.
Republicans Miss Opportunity to Reach Generation Z
"Getting back to this article by Evita Duffy, who just says, listen, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy literally handed Generation Z over to the Democrats on a silver platter. She makes the case for it. Guys, do you recall? You guys may recall this. And we were all feeling good when we saw this. You know, we've worn the shirts. We've said it, let's go Brandon, so on, et cetera, but do you guys recall? Remember this. Remember this, when college students were at college, football games, in their stadiums, and they were saying, forget Joe Biden, but they were using another F word instead of forget. And we were looking at this as Republicans as conservatives and saying, oh my goodness, they are waking up on college campuses. Surely, surely someone besides Charlie Kirk and Steven Crowder are gonna be on these college campuses surely, right? Surely, surely they are in C has a squad out there to take advantage of these college students that feel disenfranchised. Surely Kevin McCarthy surely run a McDonald's. The Daniel Shirley Mitch McConnell have a plan to go ahead and make sure that we get some of these young college voters who are obviously upset who see that COVID lockdowns are completely un American and they're turning against the very president whom likely they voted for. Many of them. No, we didn't do that. We didn't do that.

Craig Shirley: Reagan Ran an Ideological Campaign to Stand for All
"Or how about the guy in Georgia who's another left wing kook nut And how about the guy in Arizona He doesn't even show up You don't even know his name He was an astronaut okay great And how about the guy in Ohio is a complete fraud pretending he's a moderate when he has his head so far up Pelosi's but it's not even funny I mean he should be out there The concept of permanent offense Remember back in 94 back in 93 and then before you talked about permanent offense I don't get the Republicans that don't get McConnell I don't get this woman who's ahead of the RNC It's seems to be more about personal PR than it is communicating a message you unifying a party so that it stands for one thing to all people That's what Reagan did That's what Reagan did in 1980 in which escapes everybody else Mark I know you know you were there And I was there I'm not I don't want to take myself But Reagan ran a campaign and ideological champagne in which he stood for one thing to all people The party stood Bob they'll God bless his soul God bless us all He did something rather brilliant in 1980 He kept introducing legislation about tax cuts about defense spending about this that the other thing Now he knew they would lose in the Senate But it would force the Democrats to go on record as being against tax cuts if he can get spending cuts to being against defense spending Did all these things So he kept forcing it right in harmony with Reagan's message And it was a beautiful thing to do because it boxed in the Democrats voting things that they didn't want to vote for
Craig Shirley: November Won't Be a Red Wave but an Old Testament
"So tonight when we hear people talking about the Democrats or tightening with the Republicans and so forth and yet when I look at these individual races in these individual states George of Pennsylvania I look at Ohio I look at Arizona these candidates have really tightened it up these Republicans many of whom were written off No I agree I agree This is going to be it's not going to be a red wave It's going to be an Old Testament pestilence going through the town and killing everybody who is not killing but destroying who is Democrat who's a Democrat on the town if they don't have lamb's blood painted over the lintel It's going to be a snack It's not going to be a tsunami Because tsunami suggests it wipes out everything It's going to be a selective dismemberment But while we're talking about bothers me Mark the Republican Party to me doesn't seem to have their act together which is no surprise They always they seem to be spending more on more effort and more money and more time on personal PR than an organizing a message like a contract with America doesn't have to be a contractor of American college is something else But why aren't they all rallying around stopping spending tax cuts corruption things like that I mean the border parents rights things that are making people mad things that they want them addressed They're talking about themselves instead of talking about the rights of the voters and the rights of the parents

A Dire Generational Warning From 'Hollowed Out' Author Jeremy Adams
"There is a massive crisis happening right now with young people. And it's not just one issue. It's multiple. Jeremy Adams, whose teacher of the year in California and has just published this book, which again is hollowed out a warning against a warning about America's next generation and he joins us right now. Jeremy, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Shirley, thank you for having me. I really appreciate it. Thanks for having me on. So Jeremy, a lot of different ways we could start here, but let's just start this way. Tell us about your book and why you decided to write it. Yeah, well, I've been a teacher for almost 25 years now. And one of the really interesting and unique things about being a teacher is that you start to see things in the classroom that the broader society takes a while to figure out. And having taught for 25 years, I'll tell you in the last 5 to 7 years, there have been some profoundly disturbing changes in the way that my students spend their time in the way that they look at the country and their value system and the way that they look at adulthood. And this book is really essentially a battle cry. Me waving my hands in the abyss saying, hey, other adults in America, we have a profound problem here with our young people. And I was I couldn't agree with you more. This is not a political issue. It is a cultural spiritual and moral issue. Our children are literally being hollowed out of the values and the behaviors that typically give life its meaning and its purpose. So tell me, what are you seeing? What is that warning? What is the canary in the coal mine? Yeah. The problem is that our young people literally are living their lives untethered to adult values and don't responsibilities. Morals, they spend their time in a way that you and I. And I know you're a bit younger than I am. I'm sorry to say. But you know, they literally spend 9 to ten hours a day on their cell phone. That's right. And think about that. When you spend 9 or ten hours a day on your cell phone, that means you're not dating. You're not going out. You don't have intensive friendships. You're not reading. And nowadays, literally the attention span of our young people has been destroyed.

Catherine Engelbrecht: Lessons Learned From True the Vote, 2000 Mules
"Look, I mean, I think it was congressman Sheila Jackson Lee's district. We call it Shirley. And there was like an empty lot, folks. You got to check this out. There's an empty dirt lot. And Catherine calls. She's guess what we found. It was true to vote back then. We got over 40 people who are registered to vote at an empty dirt lot. Do you remember that? Oh, yeah. That was one of our very first research projects and the way it went was when we started through the vote, it was just a very small group that said, you know what? We need volunteers who are not enough volunteers to work at the polls and we're all looking for some way to sort of check that good citizenship box. So let's go do that. And when we did that, we saw problems related to process. Some of those problems were focused, most of the problems were focused on inaccuracies in a poll book. And that led to the question of, well, how does bad data get into the poll book? What kind of controls and maintenance measures are being taken, which roll back to how our voters being registered, which got to these MP lots and people being registered at Jack in the boxes and, you know, fans in the dresses and so forth and so on. And that really started this, you know, now decade plus kind of sojourn and crusade for better process and really the heart of the movie is really meant to highlight the breakdown of process and breakdown of integrity in our elections. We have been pushed into a corner where voter ID is claimed to be racist. You know, we need to be able to vote for a month before election. Oh, just go down the list. And then you introduce these drop boxes. So our hope was to highlight just how broken it is all becomes and then find our way
Did Joe Biden's Millions Really Come From His Book Sales?
"And over at the federalist the gentleman continues rather than ask for proof of sources of income the media has been stuck in a repeating cycle of reporting about whether Joe and Joe Biden underpaid payroll taxes That's valid question but it misses the bigger picture To that end tax returns are viable investigative source documents since the days of Al Capone the rule has been clear don't ever fail to pay taxes on any income even if shady It's the easiest conviction for prosecutor So it's logical that all income will be reported and for any potentiality of the ethical or legal line an upstream S corporation would serve as the perfect mechanism to obscure it from view On a matter of this importance all possibilities must be fairly concerted until proof is established one way or another See Donald Trump's taxes are audited every single year At Biden's been Biden may have completely valid sources for all his millions And if so he should demonstrate a particularly given the evidence of foreign money flowing through his son and indirect references to him and releasing Biden's tax return last year White House press secretary Jim Paso commented that the release of the president's tax return should be expected of all presidents Shirley she would agree this means the full set of documents

"And frustration, all of the emotions that are part of life. On a recent trip to Mexico, I got a chance to sit down with Shirley Manson while she was on tour in puebla to talk about her career, her music, and the long road that brought her to where she is today. Are we in business? We are excellent. Shirley, I understand that not only were you a brownie scout growing up. I also read that you've been known to recite your brownie scout creed on occasion. And I was wondering if there was any chance that I could get you to do that today. I promise that I'll do my best to do my duty to God to serve the queen and help other people and to keep the brony guide law. Wow. And for those who are just listening and not watching, I did have my little three fingers salute. Do you know that I still have my brownie pins? I'll see them jail as I wish I kept mine. I still have them and every day and then I'll take them out of this little box that I have of ephemera from my childhood and I sort of look at them and remember and sort of astounded that so much time has gone by and that was so important in my life at the time. Yeah, I love that. So I know that your mom muriel was conceived on the highlands by a butler and the governess and she was an orphan until she was adopted at 5 years old. As a result, you've said that she always felt inferior and tried hard to be a part of things and to make everyone feel good. And you've said that in many ways you grew up doing the same. And I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about why. Well, I didn't grow up doing the same funnily enough, my mom certainly fostered a very sort of loving home and she was obsessed with the concept of family. So family was something that was really important to her. And she absolutely sublimated herself for the family unit. And as I was growing up, I think I was quite intimidated by that. I think that's one of the reasons I never had children. Because I was just like frightened, I think, by how serious she took her role as a matriarch, you know? But once my mom died, I really suddenly realized that the brightest light in my life had gone out. And one of the things that really struck me in the day of her funeral was a friend of hers had come up to me and said, you know, every time I met your mom, it didn't matter what was going on in my life. I would always leave her company feeling better than I had before I bumped into her. And I remember thinking, wow, that energy. My mom's light and energy's gone. And I'm a dark horse. You know, I've spent my whole life dark. And I've always treasured the dark and always been a bit scared of light in a funny way. And in some ways, I still am, and yet the day my mom died, I really decided that I was going to try. And bring light into my relationships and into the world and so after 45 years of being a bit of a, like I said, a dark horse. I've turned my attitude around a little. I read that after she passed that you were determined to become the architect of your own life. And wondering how that realization came to be. Well, two things really, my mom always used to say, you need to engineer your own happiness. You need to engineer your own life. Nobody's going to do it for you. And I never really fully understood that again until she died because she had been my Joan of Arc, really. And she fixed every problem I had usually, you know, particularly emotionally. My mom could fix anything that I was feeling. And when she left this earth, I realized, okay. I think I know what she was talking about now. And I started to really focus on the idea of making myself feel good in my life on a daily basis because I suddenly was aware that my time was running out and I didn't want to spend it sitting on the coach for the miserable and sorry for myself. Your dad was a research scientist at Edinburgh university in the department that eventually famously cloned Dolly the sheep. So were you aware of all of that happening at the time? I was vaguely aware the funny thing is when we were growing up, my dad did specialize in genetics in particular animal genetics and me and my sisters just thought this was the most boring subject of all time. And it wasn't again until we were older when we suddenly realized he was at the forefront of some of the most important subject matter in medicine and science in the future, so on so far. So I'm very proud of my father, actually. But growing up, he would conduct strange experiments in our garden shared with eggs and maggots and God knows what. I mean, my dad is a real eccentric. And has been a hugely inspiring figure in my life and remains so he's such an adventurer and he's so curious. I guess you get a lot from him in terms of your own alchemy and working to make things different. I don't have nearly as much get up and go as my father. But you know he's a very religious man, very devout and yet he's a scientist. And so I was brought up with this duality in my thinking, which I'm very grateful for. I don't see that they have to be exclusive necessarily because my father always seemed to make this duality complete sense to me. While I was looking at when I was doing my research and I saw that he was a Sunday school teacher as well as Sunday school teacher, which was even worse. So you had to be in the class when he was teaching. No, but you're also bullied as a child, was he witnessing any of that? You were bullied because you were a redhead. Yeah. That's a common part of growing up or certainly back then and I grew up in the 70s, basically in Scotland. And being a rare Ted, you know, you're part of 2% of the population. You are just a natural target. And so yeah, I got bullied and people made fun of me, but it wasn't until I got into high school secondary school where I had us proper seriously physically imposing bully. And she really did scare the bejesus out of me. But yeah, my parents knew about it because I told them about it, but they are philosophy was you just have to deal with this. You need to figure out way of dealing with it. And I was furious at them, but I'm very grateful, ultimately, because in my life, I am no longer even capable of being bullied, as it turns out. Because I just learned how to deal with it, you know? But you know every child has their own story. You think that you're sorely the one who is the target of people's wrath, but I think people like to bully other people, I think we're seeing that same White House as currently. So that's just part and parcel of growing up, I think. Well, despite your bullying, you said that your childhood was pretty normal. You studied violin and clarinet. You played in the school orchestra. You also sang with the choir. Then when you were a senior in high school, you began smoking and drinking, sniffing glue,.
Why Is It Racist to Ask for Voter ID?
"And the Democrats are playing on a whole other level. I mean, you look at what Chuck Schumer is doing right now insisting that he's got to get the filibuster before Martin Luther King day. If they don't get their voting rights acts. And somehow it's racist to say that now it doesn't really make sense that we're just going to allow every single person in the United States of America to just mail in a ballot. I mean, how do you check IDs? How do you check social security numbers? How do you know that the person who filled out that ballot is really the person? I'm still naive enough that I think you ought to show an ID when you go to vote. The concept and these used to really get me when I lived in New York City. I'd always bring my ID. Every single time, because I'm like, Shirley, surely they'll need this, right? And they never did, of course, because somehow it's racist to ask for ID. I don't get the logic given that now they're trying to card everybody to go into a restaurant in New York City or into a building in New York City or a store or a movie in New York City. So if you have to be carded for that, then soon to be carted to vote, right? I mean, just to play

"Probably the combination of all of the drugs. And all of the health problems. It's just a lot of hard living. Yeah, man. So she was cremated according to her wishes. And in 1968, her husband, Stanley released a posthumous volume of her work called come along with me that contained her unfinished last novel as well as 14 previously uncollected short stories. Among them was Louisa, please come home, which I started to read. That short story. And it is very good. It's about a girl who she just decides to run away from home on her sister's wedding day and she planned the whole thing. I'll buy a ticket to this place. You know, if I go to this place, it should be fine. And I'll change my clothes here. Wow. It's a very good churchy. Okay. And also in that book, we're three lectures that she had given at college or writers conferences in her last years. And Shirley Jackson papers are available at the Library of Congress, which is really awesome. In the August 5th, 2013 issue, The New Yorker published paranoia, which writers from The New Yorker said, was discovered in her papers at the library, which is pretty cool. So two of her children, Lawrence and Sarah became editors for a collection of her unpublished works. It was called let me tell you news stories essays and other writings. And that compilation released in August 2015, marked the 50th anniversary of her death. So in 2016, journalist Ruth Franklin published Shirley Jackson a rather haunted life, a biography examining the influence of her upbringing marriage and addictions upon her work. While positioning her as a major figure in American literature and examiner of post war American anxieties via domestic horror. This biography went on to receive the national book Critics' Circle award for biography, the Edgar award for critical biographical work and the Bram Stoker award for best nonfiction. Nice. So Shirley Jackson's life is also depicted in the 2020 film Shirley starring Elisabeth Moss as Shirley Jackson and Michael stuhlbarg as Stanley Edgar Hyman. But people have scholars of Jackson have kind of criticized that as it's not really a good biography of her. She just happens to be the basis for a character there. Yeah, I heard it's like highly fictionalized Shirley Jackson esque. It's Shirley Jackson in a Shirley Jackson story kind of feeling as opposed to what a biopic. I will say that the photos that I saw was with Martha as her, it was exactly like her. It was kind of crazy. Yes. So since 2015, Jackson's adopted home of north Bennington, Vermont, has honored her legacy by celebrating Shirley Jackson day on June 27th. The day in the fictional story of the water. Okay, that's very good. You know what? They say vermonters are uptight, but that's a very good joke. I'll give them that. Yes. So I just want to plug. I got a lot of great information by a very excellent article by Zoe Heller called the haunted mind of Shirley Jackson from the October 17th, 2016 issue of The New Yorker. And then Ruth Franklin's biography of her sounds incredible too. So I'd love to check that out now that I have this newfound newfound interest and appreciation. Yeah, exactly, appreciation for Shirley Jackson. So that's that. Love her. It wasn't so wild. So for questioning, we are going to pivot. Okay. Our quiz is called surely you can't be serious. This is a quiz about the stars of the 1980 parody film airplane and some other famous shirleys. Okay, great. All right, question one. The trio of Zucker abrahams and Zucker wrote and produced the film airplane, and they later created the naked gun comedic crime series starring Leslie Nielsen as detective Frank drebin. How many naked gun films are there in that series? Question two Shirley Temple, child actress, dancer, U.S. ambassador to Ghana and to Czechoslovakia, subject of a Spanish surrealist zany painting, what couldn't this talented gal do?

Iran because most people think the country is not ready for a black candidate not ready for a woman candidate the next time a woman runs or a black a jew or anyone from a group that the country is not ready to elect to attack highest office. I believe he or she will be taken seriously from the start. The door is not open yet but it is a jar shirley chisholm died in two thousand and five three years before she could see barack obama get elected the first black president of the united states and fifteen years before she could witness kamala harris got elected as the first black and first female vice president before shirley passed away. She was asked how she'd like to be remember after she was gone her response. I'd like them to say a shirley. Chisholm had guts. That's how i like to be remembered. And thanks her fighting spirit. Her fearless determination to forge her own path. She absolutely will be everyone. Thank you so much for welling with us this week..

"Well listen. I am so grateful. And i'm not i mean i know it sounds like i'm blowing wind up your skirt. I really really think you're incredibly special. And i couldn't really believe that you said yes to this because you've been one of my dream guests since i'm so honored. I have a million and one things. I'd love to ask you but you know this this particular podcast is about songwriting and i was kind of blown away by the fact that you hadn't start dropping till you went to university. Yeah i was a late bloomer. What was your musical expedients when you were growing up man. I'm from a super small town in north carolina. Snow hill yes. We didn't have access to like a lot of records shops. Where i could just go in and wake up one day and get cds like we had to drive. Maybe thirty minutes to do that. I didn't have access to a lot of live shows so mom. Musical experience came from television and radio. I fell in love with soul for my mom and dad every saturday morning. We get up and have to clean the house and my mama put on. You know her favorite songs which usually consisted of a lot of tina turner and some patti labelle. My dad is a crazy luther vandross fan so you know that's where i get my love of soul music from and then you know i fell in love with hip hop. So where were you first exposed to hip hope. Tv the first video. I saw that really captivated me was. Mc lies poor georgie. That one was the one that was like. Oh my god like who is. Is this a woman. I wanna do that. You know i just fell in love with it the storytelling and then you know having the story in video format as well And i fell in love with new york because of that. I always wanted to live there. But you know that's that's kind of my musical experience at kinda had to sit in front of the floor model tv indian style and just take it in and then imagine myself in new york or you know what that felt like so i'm an aquarius I have a very open imaginative mind. Did you always want to be a rapper. Or always. Since since i m c light. I knew what i wanted to do. The only thing was in growing up where i grew up. And you know. I hear stories of you know other artists that live in big metropolitan cities and they go outside of their homes and they could see to pop shoe in the video down the street or most deaf or whoever. I didn't have that experience so being a musician was hard for me to even believe that it was something attainable for me or necessarily like. This is what i wanna do. I don't even know how to go about doing it. you know so though it was always in the back of my mind like when you passionate about something no matter what you say. I'm gonna do this. It never leaves you so you know. I said ibn accountant. I like math. But you know it's an accountant. Yeah you go to high school and they tell you to go talk to the goddess kessler and figure out what you gotta do and it's just like oh you're good at math you'd be a great account and i'm from the country and i'm just like okay and but no one like that's not me. I want to sit in a cubicle. Pudge numbers are like are like to be creative. So you know. I went to college and you know the way the universe works out. You know if you allow yourself to open up to it and follow it. It always set you on a path. You supposed to be on no matter what and you know going to. Nc state and getting a job at a sneaker store introduced me to one of my best lifelong friends. His name goes by the name of charlie smart and threw him actively pursuing music because he comes from a musical and you know it was something that was his dream and he actually went for. I was able to learn. And you know stop being fearful and he brought me into the world and we started a group together with other friends. So were you writing before this before you met him writing a note boots or your head or yeah was i started writing poetry. I write and that was around. Like my middle school adolescent in highschool days and it started you know are are always comes from a way of wanting to express yourself so that was a time where one you know you getting thirteen being a teenager like you want to be independent and your parents got all these rules and you fall in love and you get your heart broken and you know coming from my family. You know how the baby boomers are like you know. I ain't trying to hear what i said goes and there's not a lot of conversations going on so i started writing poetry just to get out what i needed to get out. You know frustrations by heartbreak. A bad he won't let me do what i wanna do. You know you're on your. I guess you're working on your fourth record correct. Yeah my fourth album no pressure oh man let me tell you i always do the most. Yeah yes you do Which takes us of course to the song that you chose off your masterpiece eve For this particular podcast which is about you know a moment in your writing in your experience as an artist. We are some you know you. You take a leap of faith are you. Are you change direction or you realize something about your own artistry or your writing and so. We're going to examine today f. Any of i said it correctly. Yes that you said it correctly. So i wanted to know why you put this particular song at the end of this record. What was the what was the reason for. Its placement there One you know sonically. It just felt good there. But i think the most important reason is it. It was a culmination of everything that album was supposed to be. And it brought all the women that i talked about into one and i think the the final thought that i i wanted to leave was the idea that the greatest thing about women and to being a mother is at you. Bring life fourth in his world and we're here to nurture and teach and grow and protect That's that's a strength and beauty of a woman like you know just as an example you look at to pot. Who's one of the most polarizing figures you know in hip-hop and beyond and he is who he was because he was raised by strong woman a strong black woman and that idea can be taken and put into a whole bigger context of what women mean universally to this world. Lots of a straight yes. Yes a political activists Black panther You know she had her own struggles but at the end of the day she she stood strong the as a black woman And whether we looking at humans or in nature you know something about the feminine energy that you know can't be ignored and denied and i just wanted to end it on that note. How important it is for us to take a step back and and recognize that.

That's so nice. Well i could tell you simply that I think part of it is you know i sort of started from scratch. I'm not a musician. I really don't play anything except feedback really and Just in terms of myself. I was still evolving as a human being and I think as as we evolve We get stronger. I didn't really peak as a performer. Till i was much older. you know. Of course you lose a certain amount of your youthful looks but what one gains is a strength of character and confidence and i think confidence and Just staying in contact with your earliest self. you're young self. you know remembering who you are. I have no stage persona. So i don't have anything to lose. I'm just. I'm just the person that's on the street. Talk into my kids. I go on stage. And then i'm talking to the people. I'm the same person so we are here on the jump. Tolkien about particular songs in an artist could here and you have picked pissing in a river which I was delighted by you. Know first of all i wanted to ask you. You know what was going on in your life around the time of writing this song. Well this was particularly a tumultuous time. I never thought that. I would bank a record but we did. We made horses. And i knew so little about the music business or help people operated or and i had no clear ambition that when the record was over i thought okay. I did that now. I can go back to work in the bookstore. I can be writing poetry but then we were offered a tour and we got to see a lot of the world something that economically. I could have never done before. We were offered The chance to tour. And then i was asked to do another record. Which really i. I really hesitated. Because i felt like i had done a record. I had done what i want to do. I wanted to do something new. I wanted to open up territory for others and You know create new space and i felt. Hopefully i had done that. And also pay homage to people that i admired and This was new territory for me. Because i i wasn't quite sure what my goals were for the second record and my personal life was a bit in a tangle you know just in terms of relationships and I.

David Vlez on Building the Branchless Bank
"So david i think an interesting entry point here is fun and interesting once since the news was just announced that berkshire hathaway made a very large investment into your company. And you just told me that they're the largest bank investor ever so that's quite an interesting dynamic. Can you walk us through this story. Why do you think berkshire was so interested in your business out of this down. To be completely honest we never really considered him as potentially investor as we've seen him very actively investing in traditional banks. Intriguing convents where one of the biggest investors and goldman sachs surprises. Today they to be best for bank of america and they tend to look more traditional recumbents in more mature industries but we had a conversation with them a few months ago and they started digging in and they were very very curious can really really good questions about the market size of the unit economics of the business about cohorts very thoughtful understanding financial services. In what we're doing here in the mark because howard getting with some of the traditional banks in latin america and in a few weeks they were very excited and very willing to lead around in. No bank can so for us has been we see days and i think the market has proceedings a bit of the big validation of the business model validation of or ability to show bags eventually your ability to surpass traditional banks in the future financial services. What do you think are the most important differentiator between what will call the incumbent banks that maybe berkshire invested in more traditionally versus new bank. What are the largest important differences for those out there listening to understand the thing. The first one is the consumer obsession and a culture that is based on consumer obsession. Nah i don't think this is shirley specific to financial services. I think what common denominator of incumbent industries either financial services. You look at insurance or even media or transportation is that after. Let's say six. Seven decades of traditional capitalism you ended up with a number of players oligopolies where four five companies effectively owned the markets.
