"Easier over time. It has. So that was definitely one. And my son I can crop up a little bit here and there. And then I know how to do this thing. I don't like it. I don't really like it, but I'm more skilled at it, practiced. It's so interesting. Isn't it because similar for me, it wasn't necessarily a perfectionism, but we know that those first three years, like the brain is developing and they're like imprinting everything and it's so hard with our first kid because we don't. We don't know anything, you know? We've never done this before. There's no like no one takes. I had like one couple take parenting class when their child was like an infant or something like that, but basically no one does that, you know? And so we don't we don't know and then we have I think for me there is a measure forgiveness right that has to go along with like seeing our unskilful are on skillfulness of the past. Yeah, and I talk about good enough parenting, you know, definitely letting go and being good enough and I see that that's really quite great actually. You know, being a good enough parent. And, you know, that's and forgiving ourselves, like we were talking about before, why don't we make mistakes or kind of act in a way, being able to be compassionate with ourselves? And I think also for me, again, coming back to these ordinary moments, knowing that I didn't have to create these big special memories, maybe that I thought they're great, sometimes sure, and the memorable, obviously, but often these in between moments, you know, I still think about my daughter on a ferry. I was holding her. She might have been four or 5 and just her falling asleep and rocking her on this ferry. Just the wind in my face and feeling the sun and that is a moment that's wolf locked in and I savor that. And you know, it was quite ordinary. Yeah, I know all those moments of holding. Now that my oldest daughter is 15, you know, I can think of like, yes. All those moments where she was just like glued to my chest, arms, and legs wrapped around, and those are like, oh, you know, just like to think about that. It was like, that's like a shot of love in my in my day to think about that. Yeah, and as you're saying that, I'm thinking also those moments of intensity, like we're talking about. That can be they are clinging to us and we're feeling like, oh my gosh, I don't want another human being cleaned me right now. And then guilt me might lay on ourselves about that. So a lot of the mom guilt, you know, I've been able to really let go of because again, it's to know that it's passing. I think that's a super helpful thing. Those intensity of those newborn days when we're feeling so out of control and exhausted and that it's short lived. And we'll survive because I wasn't sure I was going to survive with my daughter enough to be honest there were moments. I know, I know, my daughter was such an intense baby and all that. Yeah, it's interesting. I think for me what's helped too is like that I did everything I could. You know what I mean? I know when she was under three, my temper scared her. And that wasn't.

"Bit of time and some loving attention. And oddly enough, the feeling of not trying to fix anything. Which is so interesting, right? Just like this is what is right now. And it's that whole process of you have to move through it and now feeling that relief of the other side of having just given those feelings some attention that the it's so interesting because I say like our feelings are like toddlers like they're like talking at her leg. I will not go away until you know and now my inner toddler is sort of running free but it's just so interesting to have that happen if you were a dear listener or a witness to that I guess real time for me. So yeah, I would add too that sometimes sometimes it's as simple as that and we can kind of come down the other side and it sort of dissipates and sometimes it's like you may need to go off later on and have a cry or something like that and make space for that. And so but sometimes we have to function in our lives. We have to do an interview and we have to go into a meeting at work and it's not the ideal time to lose it. So it helps us pull ourselves together but then I also encourage people to make sure they're creating space somewhere in their days where they can feel it and let it out if it's still there. And it's not always there, but it may be. I think that's the greatest gift of mindfulness for me is that it used to be that I was this on this roller coaster of emotions and those intense things were so either they would just I'd become overwhelmed by them very just like I felt like on a regular basis like I kind of felt overwhelmed by life but the process of

We both presented together at events and supported each other and writing our books, and I'm so excited that you've written another book. Don't forget to breathe 5 minute mindfulness for women. And I know you're a mama. And so I'd like to dive into all of that. But yeah. I mean, the mindfulness piece itself, I think. Hopefully maybe dear listener, you stuck with us and have that experience with me of coming into your body, but the whole experience of just acknowledging what is, it's amazing how such a simple thing can have such powerful and profound effects. I mean, how I feel enormously different than I did. 7 minutes ago. Right. When did you discover mindfulness? And how did it help you? Yeah, I formally, I would say around the time you did 17, 18 years ago, something like that. My kids are 20 and ten and my daughter was around three when I took a mindfulness based stress reduction class at my local hospital. As I wanted to learn more to bring some mindfulness into the therapy office. So I thought, you know, I needed to kind of really experience what this was because I had a yoga practice and there's shavasana and there's some meditation at the end, but it's a little bit different. So I wanted to get clear. And I faithfully meditated for half an hour every day as part of the homework. So I'm a recovering perfectionist type a and you know, within just a couple of weeks, I was like, wow, okay. I don't typically like to slow down a little bit, but I was finding that I had more energy and more patients with my daughter and I was

"You're ready, locating the breath wherever it's most accessible. So that could be the In-N-Out breasts at the nostrils. It might be the rising and falling of the chest. Or maybe the rising and falling of the belly. And if that feels too intense, there are also sounds. We can notice sounds. But for now, experimenting with seeing if we can notice the breath. Each inhale and each exhale. Letting it come and go on its own. Saying if you can notice the beginning and ending of the inhale and the beginning and ending of the exhale and there may or may not be a pause happening naturally in between. And what we soon find out is that our attention drifts off, which is perfectly normal. This is what our minds do. We hear sounds, we think all kinds of thoughts, we feel an itch, anything can pull our attention away, and it's fine. So each time we notice that we have drifted off, we note where we've been, and then we gently return our attention back to that home base of the breasts, and begin again. Simply noticing, sensing from the inside out, that inhale, and that exhale. And if you'd like before we bring our attention back to the entirety of the body, taking a nice deep pail in and exhale out. Noticing the entirety of the body, sitting here, breathing. And when you're ready, opening the eyes. Hello. Hi, shonda. Thank you so much. You're welcome. That was very helpful for me. Thank you. No, you're welcome. Yes, we can all use that. That's for sure. And it helps to have somebody walk you through it. No matter how much experience you have with a mindfulness practice, when you're in a moment, that's a challenging moment. It really does help to have that. But guidance is a challenging moment, and it kind of takes the onus off of us to guide ourselves, right?

"We each have a panic button and a while ago we sort of talked about it and we said all right, look, it's sacred, if I hit the panic button, you've got to respond and vice versa. And in the old days, we called it the barking dog. We had this thing where it's like, something's bugging you in the back of your head and you don't know what it is, but you know it's bugging you, and you know it's going to be a problem. And I think very early on that was sort of the precursor to this because we'd each kind of look at each other and say, I think I've got a barking dog. And the rule was you never say no to a barking dog. You just accept that the dog is barking and it probably means something. And it always did. But I think the end result has been to, as we grown over the years, it's having to respect for each other to understand when the person needs the support, sometimes just to listen, but also the craft and creative business of problem solving. Shonda, what are the ingredients that Betsy needs to bring her best version of herself to work and thrive? Oh my God. It's really hard when you've known somebody as long as I've known Betsy and is intricately as I've known Betsy to think about what ingredients can she bring only because at this point and this might sound like really I don't whoo whoo. She's like a part of me. So I don't really I don't even know if I can describe that. Yeah. Like definitely like my other work half in a way that's really intense. So I don't know that it can be described in a very easy manner. Creatively, I know that if I have a creative problem, that's why I'm calling. I know that if I'm having an exciting thing, that's why I'm calling. Everything that we do, we sort of don't, we almost don't have to discuss everything anymore because our shorthand has become so well crafted between the two of us. I feel like Danielle and I have that so much. If somebody had a wiretapped us, all they would hear is, did you? Yeah, I did. Did you speak to I did? We don't we just like don't even finish sentences. And so it's kind of like you're describing that exact dynamic, which is, you know, it's such a, it's such an invaluable thing if you can find that in work. It's a very rare thing. I think if you can find that in a partner. And so I'm wondering for those that are listening, how do you advise them to sort of find that creative safety within work?

"Mean, I just remember sitting in the room because back then I was painfully shy. Very new to television. I had never worked in television before. Grace was my first show, really. And I was not a person who wanted to go sit in a room full of old men and tell them what to do. But I remember sort of thinking like, these guys don't know anything about what's happening in the world right now, but they're the people making the decisions. And so I'm struggling to come up with what to say. And then Betsy opens her mouth and says, do you want to say what she said, Betsy? Sure. Because they were saying, there's nothing relatable about to show. I mean, I mean, look at this lead character. Who's going to want to watch this? I mean, this is a woman who goes into work for her first day at a new job, having spent the night before carousing and drinking and having sex with a stranger. Who would do something like that? And shonda looks like she wanted to throw up, which was the appropriate response to this. But I couldn't help it. And I said, oh, that's me. I did that. That's absolutely me. And what I didn't say was, yeah, I was probably drunk when I came into work the next day because I wasn't I wasn't actually a doctor. So there was not that much at risk unless you thought bad development of a script might hurt somebody. But I remember saying that. And I just blurted it out because it was true. I mean, it was sort of like we've all had these experiences where we go, we do something.

"Some people don't need that creative partner, but to me, what's so wonderful is you know it's right. It's true. You know it's right when it's working. And it was always very easy working with Betsy in terms of talking about things creatively. We see the world in very oddly different but very similar ways. And we just get along. So right, if it's not working, I guess you know it's not working. And you shouldn't be forcing it. But for us, it just always worked. I also feel like there's a moment you come or you say, I don't know, this person brings out my best work. And there's something about working with shonda where I feel like she encourages me and I find that I do my best work, collaborating with her. It's the most exciting process. It is endlessly entertaining. And I think a lot of it is when you find somebody who makes you better at what you do, it's very often a really good partnership. Yeah. What do you look for when you guys are hiring now? I always say that we look for talented people who will argue with us. And by that, I mean people who are fearless and will tell us what they really think, but really we're in this great position now where we're able to search for sort of best in class people. We definitely like to bring in lots of young people and raise them and watch them grow in our company. But we also can bring in people who are just spectacular at what they do. And raise our game. And I think also it's funny people who share our approach in a lot of ways to material but who have strong points of view who bring a lot of their own point of view to the table as well. And we're just really passionate about the work. You know, bet that you had done a career pivot from acting in comedy and to producing. And I'm curious how you knew that this was the right path for you that you should actually pursue this. I think I knew because I wasn't that good at comedy for a while. I don't know, you made me laugh a bunch today. Well, good. And by the way, it certainly comes in handy on long days. But I think what was interesting for me was I was working as an actor and in comedy or trying to. And I got a job reading scripts because I couldn't get a job waitressing, which is a whole nother story. But all of a sudden, I found something really easy. And I don't mean that to be glib. It felt organic to me to be reading material and giving insights on how to improve things or it took every single thing that I learned from acting to studies in college to waiting on table. It took all of these different skills that I developed over the years. And all of a sudden I found this place where everything was useful. And first, it started with reading and giving feedback. But the whole concept of producing was something that

So, okay, shonda. If you could spend first of all, let me preface this for those who don't know, shonda created the very critically acclaimed Carly's Aiken favorite, princess diaries two. While she is known for many other things, I would just really like to call that out. So shonda, if you could spend a day in the tan, the bridge return, or in genovia, where are you going? Oh, I think I'm going to Bridgerton. Genovia was a spectacular world, but very, very narrow. But either way, you get to be with Julie Andrews. Yes, that is. Consistency. Consistency there.

And I drove to see Betsy beers in the production company that she was working in. And I got completely lost and I was late and I'm never late. I mean, literally like I'm the person who arrives everywhere even parties, embarrassingly, like ten minutes early. So I came in late and I was all flustered, and she was super nice about it. If I remember correctly, and we just started talking we had one of those moments where you start talking to somebody and you feel like you've known them forever.

"The crown has landed on my head that way, not a killer. This is the way Yeah, to leave. The killer wasn't offered before me. If you're trying to curse you can't pull shirt. We have so many disasters bombarding us right now. Today, We're gonna talk about Bridge or Tim, one of the hottest shows on Netflix. Right now hot in various ways. We'll talk about that. In less than a month, more than 60 million homes streamed it. Naturally, a second season is already in the works. It is a Shonda Rhimes production. Richardson is set in London during the early 18 hundreds, and it follows the Bridget in family during the social season in which well to do young ladies are presented from marriage. Today is a most important day. And for some, a terrifying one. But today's the day London's marriage minded Mrs are presented to Her Majesty. The Queen. May God have mercy on their souls. Well, we've seen this type of drama in countless Jane Austen remakes. But this show is different in some key ways, namely, it is multiracial. Joining us to talk about Bridget Tin is Melanie McFarland, TV critic for Salon. Hi. Hi. Thanks for having me great to have you. Well, this really is the talk of well the talk of a lot talk of social media. And how did it become such a viral sensation? Well, I think there was already a lot of high expectation around the show for two reasons. One. It's one of very few of any adaptations of what is very much you know. It's a romantic novel. I mean, it's It's part of like the romance novel is just kind of generally looked down upon in literature. There are various reasons for that, and it's not right. But unfortunately, it's kind of a fact. So the fact that this is a serious that is being adapted. I think that already brought a lot of heat with it. And the second thing is Shonda Rhimes got a huge deal that killed her away from ABC and landed her Netflix and this is her first release with Netflix. And so I think a lot of people were curious. You see what that would look like, and it's very steamy. As a Shonda Rhimes production is it's d me? Yes, but I think one thing that Shonda Rhimes does really well in her Syriza is to show the world as she would like to see it, you know, And as she does see it in all of her production, she does have an element of inclusive casting now. With Bridger 10. The way that it's executed is in my opinion, not the best on we can talk about that a little bit more. But she also has its very fantastical way of looking at love, You know, even in Gray's, You know, all of the relationships are in some ways, you know, Even the breakups are, you know, hyper dramatic and kind of hyper fantastic. And here you have this very polite society. You know, with this, you know, all of the glamour of, you know, Regency all around it. To have Shonda Rhimes presented Ryan's production of Granted. It wasn't created by her. It was created by Chris Van Dusen, but to have her name attached to something like that. I think that there was a lot of expectation and for a lot of people, it exceeded those expectations of what a Shonda Rhimes Netflix production could look like. So you notice it from the get go. The first episode you see that The Queen herself is black Queen Charlotte and then later on the main romantic interest, the Duke Duke of Hastings. He is black and Quite fetching if I may say, and but that's not commented on until a while into the series, the multiracial nature of this and I just want to play a clip of a conversation between the Duke and the woman who raised him. About that, because this I think this is the first time that they talk about it. We would to separate societies divided by color until the king fell in love with one of us. I love your grace conquers.

The 5 biggest Netflix original series have been revealed
"Netflix. Says these are it's five most-watched original series now. This one is weird to me because we were talking the other day about mandalorian. How it's a real flagship series for disney. Plus it's generated subscribers and big budget and all the rest and we were curious where like we'll netflix's has been around for a while. What is their flagship stuff. And so i. I thought of stranger things i also thought about some of the money. They paid for a lot of those comedy specials I wasn't the the escobar show. What was that called. What norcal narcos was that. Another one yes. Ozark is very good. Okay oh sorry anyway. They've done them as done them. But i saw this list and this list kind of surprise a lot of shows. I never watched or heard of for their top five. Most watched shows and well some of them are recent. Which kind of explains you know. Maybe i'm not necessarily watching him. So some of them are recent but number of coming in at number five with sixty three million viewers by the way in order to be viewer. Show on netflix. All used to do is watch two minutes really just so you know that's the threshold while two minutes which for a series. It's kinda crazy to say you watch the series if you only watch two minutes. But that's the metric that they're using they They got this deal With the former the former producer maker of grey's anatomy scandal. What is her name. Rhymes shonda shonda rhimes. Anyway they produce this show. Renton and sixty. Three million people watched it came out recently. And never heard of yeah. See you've never heard of it. I've never i mean. I don't think it's targeted at us. By the way if you scroll down a little bit oh we don't see image for some reason but if you did see the image you would know it is not targeted at you. Okay and then you go or maybe you feel that that's targeted at you. Don't alley brought from sean to land. Who brought you grazing so her. Production companies called sean dillon. She signed one hundred. Fifty million dollar deal with netflix to make some content and this is one of them. That's coming in number filing number four tiger king. This one i heard of but i never watched. Did you watch that. no i'm with you. I've heard many things about it. Good and bad. So when i saw this have a big number for viewership coming in at number four. I believed it. Because i heard the chatter on social media right around the time. When a lockdown lifestyle was taking off it was a lot of tiger king talk. So i i understand that one. Go number three number three stranger things. That's the other one that i had heard about seeing some of the promotions. Seizing three was the top of the bunch. Sixty four million you can see. Some of these are pretty close. Scroll down to number two this one money heist which is a translation. This was a spanish show that i sure you've never heard of but huge in the spanish speaking world is it. Yeah i've seen The hero image on netflix But i haven't watched it. Yeah i guess it would be subtitles if you watched it. Yeah yeah and then coming. In at number one. The witcher seventy six million. Did you know this. Did you watch this I believe this was a really popular show. I have not watched it yet. You see that's going though to lot of. We did not watch it and we're netflix subscribers. So it's kind of. It's a bit interesting. Yeah but we don't watch anything really. I don't watch enough stuff to even say. Maybe this stuff is amazing. But if you ever if you were curious like what are the statistics of a popular show on netflix. This should give you an idea. Between sixty and eighty million between sixty and eighty million viewers is a hit considered a hit original for net flicks. I'd be curious what the mandalorian pulled off. Because i feel like there's a different level that's why i feel like is a big threat to netflix's model the disney's powerhouse in

The sex scenes you guys. I know it's it's like it takes back to good old days but you know pre children. You're like oh that was fun. I remember that face okay. So anyways i've obsessed with this. You can tell that. Shonda wrote this. Because i was part of it. Because here's the thing this is. Why grace anatomy such a huge success. This is why scandal was such a huge success because you care about multiple characters like. There's it's so hard. I feel like we're show to had this big of a cast. And you actually care about all their storylines. Shonda can do that like i. Yes there are the main stars of the show. But there's all these other stories that are going on at the same time and you care equally about the vets way. It's funny okay without giving away too much. I have a question. Now here morgan. Because i know you're not as big a fan of the show as we are. I try question i try. Would you marry a duke. If it meant you couldn't have children or would you marry the prince which man you'd have everything you ever wanted but there will be no love. You can't get this question. This is the hardest question for me. I would marry the i was married the duke because ultimately everything you want be doesn't isn't everything you want because you definitely want.

I think of Katie and Matt and always will. I don't care what anybody says. What's that? Spade showed Jason the Spade show? I love when comedians Compete with each other, and that's what itwas they were always competing for the funniest punch line, and I thought it made things really good. Let's have you watched spades new show on Netflix before we take a break. I have not watched that. But you know what I am watching because I realized I actually do have HBO. Max s O. That happened.

We are here. Yes yes yes because this is this a moment for plans. We are here to talk about the brand new reality tv. Show on the block. House of ho show that does seem to exist primarily to make about the name. Ho shonda for asians. Everyone knows getting. It's it's a fun show. Show that Is definitely worth talking about. And we have some great people talk about it with us first of all our friends. Our colleague Our collaborator jammu. Who is producer of the podcasts southern friday and the forthcoming movie daughter and has the morgan with fillon myself in fill one. I don't know a little bit of a book project which we can talk about some other time and welcome to the podcast jess. Thank talk about this. Yes you are not alone. We would also love to welcome to they. Call bruce both you guys. First time right hon win. Who is the senior culture editor at salon and co host of good pop culture club. Another podcast in our Podcast family so welcome to the show. Yeah a happy to be here. I'm yeah shocked that it's taken so long for me. Ask but i feel like this is the one i meant to be on me. We definitely we definitely asked to vietnamese american women to be on the pike. Ask very specifically to talk about this show. And i like han when i asked you. I may have been like kind of presumptuous. And that like you know you're you're an entertainment journalist. Who's vietnamese american. I was like. I just assumed that you had watched you like interested and watch watched house of hope when i asked you. I presume that was true that you did and so and so. That's why you're like. Yeah i'll be on the on the podcast. It was funny because you know. I should've expected it and yet you asked me. I was like oh. Of course. Because i'm actually from houston perfect practically a ho hos and they were none of them though. 'cause toes what to private school system so we should say that house of hose on hbo. Max it is a Reality television series in the vein of all those shows that you that no one wants a care to admit to watch like the cardiac shahs of sunset and The real housewives that genre But it specifically focusing on a very wealthy vietnamese american family in houston Have i covered all the bases. I think pretty much. I mean know we we can say that the the cast of characters is What you might expect for a family drama whether fictional or not set in an asian context right you've got sort of the patriarch matriarch the siblings they all have different dramas individually collectively. They gathered together. Eat a lot basically. This is the nonfiction crazy rich issue. Because that's exactly what what was clearly developed to be right right right. It's definitely created in the wake of the cruiser cheese But that said i mean we've all watched it in varying degrees varying varying number of episodes. I will admit to having watched the first episode and a later episode. That i was told i should watch because it was worth watching and the guys are pretty finished. A lot of it right. So unless the jump in Just start with you. What's what's your take coming up. Well i guess well i. I actually ended up catching it early. Screener of it before so. Luckily i only watch more so It to be blunt. It was not as trashy as what i expected it to be. Maybe no expectations. And like i feel like new money. Beat amuse people like there are certain type and how the show presented was Surprisingly a a lot. More layered than i thought you know especially particularly when You know you go deeper into the series because at first episode definitely like leaned into like this this like you know american dream poll by the bootstraps model minority and all that jazz and and then it starts off like that and then just breaks it down and just show us like just all the dysfunctions of the family. So you know actually was an keep in mind. I don't really watch. the family. Reality shows is just not my thing. But you know i had to see it. 'cause beat me representation and you know all my worries and concerns
Ellen Pompeo Hints at Grey's Anatomy End, Khloe Defends Kim's 40th B-Day Trip Amid Backlash
"It's time for some daily. Pop Morgan. Is out today suggested I joined once again by actress kitchen night polio. Thank you for joining us from Georgia. Loving for having me. Thank you. says. They do even. Just in case. Well, thank you very awesome. I want some. Okay. One of your favorite TV shows may be ending grey's anatomy has been on for fifteen years and Ellen pompeo just made a very shocking confession about what is next she tells variety. We don't know when the show is really ending it, but the truth is this year could be at this is also the last year of Ellen's contract. Okay. So Justin. Do you think they should end the show now while they're on top because people are still loving the show. Grey's anatomy is Kinda Sorta like young and the restless in the sense that like it can go forever and could miss a whole year. I'm back watched two episodes and then be caught up again you know what I mean. Yeah and the answer minds right and almost reminds me of the time. Do you remember when the hills was I going off Air Lauren Conrad was going to walk out the church and it was going to finish and she thought the curtains were going. To close and all of a sudden kristen cavalieri walks in and they revamp did I think Ellen pump? POMPEO is gray but the show can survive without her but can't survive without Shonda see. So Shonda, of course, just send them big NETFLIX's deal and it's to my understanding from what I was reading that she is literally parting ways with ABC completely, which may mean she's not GonNa have our hands on this show as much as she has in the past maybe not at all. And without shining once you've created show. Yeah. But once you've created a show, it's your show and I mean who's changed things happen we don't know how her contract is structured it could just be humming net flicks. One hundred percent but do I mean I think ABC has Shonda rhimes was so early in her career I don't think any see would have given Shonda. rhimes so much ownership over that show where she could move it to ABC but I think that Shonda rhimes, this voice, her blood, her sweat is so in this show that yes if shot arrives went to Netflix she will still get her coins from this show and she will let Iran. We'll be run by somebody else. That's does her voice. Okay. So listen I know somebody who used to write for how to get away with murder and he told me that his job was literally pointless because he says we were instructed to come in with ideas and we always did we came in and we said here's this. Here's that here's this but it always went with whatever Shauna had envisioned. Thank you for your ideas. Those are good and all but. We're going to do this. Appreciates the help but what did you say? No I said well, clearly, she has something you know I know it can be frustrating for someone to shoot down your ideas but the longevity of her career and all the shows that she is there's a reason why they've been successful and I know the Debbie Allen has been doing a lot with race mad at me. You know. You never know she still no matter she goes to net she still you know that's still her show. They can't take that away even if she starts creating another network. One hundred percent you know what? I am all about being petty and I heard about the drama shameless ABC for not giving Shonda that extra fast pass at Disneyland Shame on you. But if I'm Shonda RHIMES, I don't give y'all keep the show going on still get the cash I'm not gonNA. You know bitch and fuss about it. I have two kids got college should be four and I love living fancy like Oprah. We'll see what happens but I know there's some diehard grey's anatomy fans that are just not ready to say goodbye yet. So we will have to wait and see okay Khloe Kardashian has a message for the people who are hitting on Kim's birthday trip. She told Ellen Degeneres. She knows this year has been very frustrating for everyone but there Was a good thing. I did hear that people were upset that we all went out of town but also its her fortieth, and this is something that she really wanted to do for us. It was such a nice thing and being there with all the precautions and everything that we took and being there and how grateful everybody was for the tourism aspect of it and how. So many people said that we were their first party or guests that they've had in months and what it's done like for them to be able to pay their bills or to do. So for their family I mean just hearing those. Yeah. Messages when we were there, it was really a we felt really good and we felt so safe. So safe Wow. You know I knew the minute that first photo went. Oh, here we go. It's GonNa be a firestorm and For me I went to Cynthia Bailey's wedding in Atlanta and a lot of people were giving flack about that I thought about it for ten seconds and when it's a milestone, a wedding or fortieth birthday or something. Of that magnitude, it's hard. Skip it. It's hard to say or I'll just wait until next year. So I completely understand why there was so much backlash but I also understand why you wanted to continue in go on with it because you know sometimes. Life Yeah Kisha. And and the truth is that you know they did everything I think unfortunately, the Kardashian. Sometimes are just a position where you're kind of damned if you do damned if you don't. I'm not mad at him. I'm like, go ahead live your best life you share money you should be able to spend it how you WANNA spend it and they did everything they could to keep people safe in terms of quarantine in terms of getting Kobe task I mean, what more can you ask for it? Some people are upset because they don't have the option to do it, but you know sometimes you you can't just live perilously through the and plan your trip that newest you.

Disneyland pass a serious snub from a network executive in a new interview with the Hollywood reporter Rhimes that as part of her contract with the network she had negotiated all inclusive passes to the theme park for herself and her family.

Jennifer Lawrence Confronts Anderson Cooper
"Morning everyone are you ready for some day leave? Just out today. So Morgan and I are joined again by Kisha Knight Polio. Actress a mother and you probably know her from house of pain and the cosby show. Thank you for joining us again and we are. Coordinated, in our Maulvi Pinky we are. Show and here we go. All right. Have you guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back. In fact, she's talking about that infamous fall at the Oscars and why is set off of nasty little battle between her and Anderson Cooper listen to what Jennifer said on Heather McMahon's absolutely not podcast. I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean. One hundred percent yeah you need the right best e with you I like that okay. Moving out of channing tatum. So sad news I think channing Tatum Jessie j broke up again Jesse just posted this video drinking and dancing with the caption single live in a pandemic. That's how you get there strap. We talk about that. A source tells US Jesse and channing broke up months ago because they realize they're just better off as friends now they've brought up and gone back together multiple times at what point. Do you say this is finally do you think this is finally for these two I? I'm. Not Down here, you know I mean. Go ahead. No, you I mean I just think listen like you know it's supposed to be sort of like a new relationship is supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be easy and it might not last forever. But if it's supposed to be the fun easy relationship and you've already broken up four times in between that time, it just seems like clearly there's something here that is not connecting you to something is not working out. So just like leave it alone there's no reason for these to attack broken up three times like. In my yeah. At this point in life, you know my motto is. You know it's like spoiled milk. You don't put it back in the refrigerator. and. Come back and think it's going to be something other and foiled. On because clearly, it was gonNA work by now. Exactly Keach. Have you ever gone through this where you broke out was somebody got back together the whole thing I think that's something that probably when you're younger and you Kinda keep getting things to try and when you fall in love with the ones possibility I think as you get older and you've done it and you've learned that lesson, you realize you know okay you know what? This isn't working for me. It is. Okay. We don't have to make our. Yeah. I luckily, you said Fall in love with their possibility men is that true? Amir Young? You're falling in love half the time with just what you think. They're GONNA be your. Number set and then you realize that potential here and I. Think also when you're younger, you're more willing to be in a relationship that might not be perfect because you don't skip factor in time as much. But I think as you get older, you're like I don't have the time to waste on something that's really too difficult. You don't have the energy either

"You guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back. In fact, she's talking about that infamous fall at the Oscars and why is set off of nasty little battle between her and Anderson Cooper listen to what Jennifer said on Heather McMahon's absolutely not podcast. I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean.

Insiders scoff at Meghan and Harry's reported $150M Netflix deal
"We've been talking the last couple of days about Meghan Markle and hair, ese. Deal with Netflix. Okay. And there are some reports that have been saying that Prince Harry in Meghan Markle that their production deal signed this week with Netflix could be worth as much as $150 million. And Hollywood insiders are saying Absolutely not. There's no way it could be that much because they're producers, not content creators. So what The comparison is is to some of these deals like Shonda Rhimes, For example, you know who's created Grey's Anatomy on everything. She has a reported $150 million deal with Netflix and then the creator of Black ish Kenya. Barris. Also, that deal reported to be worth $100 million. But there's a top Hollywood agent who says that he'd be shocked if Meghan and Harry's deal was worth more than two million a year because they aren't creating these shows, you know, like Shonda And Kenya are creating the concepts writing. I mean, Shauna writes everything. Yeah, Yeah. Big difference. Mona Content she produces is extraordinary. Unbelievable. I mean, she writes she has a team to about 20. But yeah, I mean her her vision. Her concepts exacts important. You're showrunner and your head writer. They set the tone of everything right. So Harry and Megan, they're going to just kind of source it out and and they're going to hear a name on it. Yeah, and they're going to be producer so they'll put their name on it. But there will be other producers as well.

If It Don't Fit, I Quit!
"We're GONNA phone call from a listener of this past week and the listener had a question. They are seventy one. They have no Internet connection at their home. They would go to the library and they would retrieve all of their email at the library and the question was how can they access their email if they don't have an Internet. They don't have a smartphone. They don't have a laptop no technology and a gentleman was really great and explained it to me and so I got together with Shonda weird and we were talking about it and Sean says you know I've heard about this product called Grand Pad and I think this might be a great solution. We reached out the company and within a half an hour. We had Scott. Lean on the show to tell us all about the different products that they have and the great solution with granted and Scott is the CEO of the company. Scott it's great to talk to you and see you face to face and thanks for coming on talk. Great thanks for having me on. Well I'll tell you Grand PAD is an amazing product for those that maybe are technically challenged or really. Just don't feel the need to have to get a full pc or a laptop or a tablet set-back about eight nine hundred dollars that don't that doesn't have this capability to be able to do what. Grand Pad can do. Can you tell us a little bit about the company and kind of where did this idea come from? It came from personal. Need we saw on our own family so my son and I and I'm fifty five. My son is twenty five. We started the company together six years ago because we saw my mom who was eighty at the time and my mother-in-law who's eighty eight struggling would standard technology and as we started looking into he said all of course no fault of theirs. They were trying to use technology. Iphones ipads other devices. That were designed for thirty year olds. It's unreasonable to think that it would work. Great for someone. Who's and they have different needs. And so we set out to design something from the ground up hardware-software service that was designed for what we lovingly called Super Seniors. All those folks that we just love so much or over the age of seventy five and it's designed just for them and it's got all the things that they want not the things that somebody who's twenty once and vice versa. So that's what started us out on this journey six years ago and now we're reaching thousands and thousands of people around the world and people really love it because it was designed for was the idea originally saying we need to do something that is not tied with suddenly. You have to get an internet carrier. You have to worry about a router in the home. The WIFI was that kind of from the ground you realize. This is one of the challenges. We're going to have to face. Yeah absolutely we step back and looked at the whole. You know the problem and then work to come up with a solution. What we said is what what my wanted was she wanted to be able to do. Video calls with their grandchildren. Who were all the United States and my mom like many folks in this age group suffered from pretty serious hearing loss so talking on a standard line land landline or cellphone was not an option for her because she can hear and so she she wanted to video call but using skype and fussing with their PC dealing with headphones it frustrated her and and frankly it frustrated the point where It made her feel bad and made her feel stupid. She's like well. Why can't figure this out? She ran around. Business was absolutely brilliant. Lady but what caused her to cut withdraw and say fussing with this technology and viruses and all. This is so irritating to me. I'm just not going to do it. you know human nature. If something's painful you withdraw from it and then sadly was happening. Was she was more disconnected from her family. Because of that so that was the problem we set out to solve and it's says exactly as he said we said let's let's try to solve all of it. No Wi Fi is required because grand pad comes built in. It's got four G. L. T. Just like our cellphones built in. That's all they're out of the box when you ship. It just automatically works no cables. That are hard to plug in. Like on a on an iphone where you gotta get plug it in. And if if I have eyesight issues and tremors this just has a wireless inductive charging docking station. You just sit there at a charter. So we really looked at even the packaging We've all been frustrated. You go to the store and you buy something. It's got that plastic clamp show and you gotta have a hammer a knife in assessors dope. It we got rid of all that nonsense and we just. We made a product that my mom marlins who sadly she's gone now but my mother-in-law eighty-eight Joan something that they would love and use every day to stay connected with your family. I love the fact that And some people just if you could set up a Wifi. Give Him. A tablet okay. Let's face it. They have the tablet. I know I have a tablet and I lose it all the time with this. You can use it and they put it right back on that charging station like you said no worry about having a recharge it and that's a nice look in charging stations so with it on a table. It's going to have a nice presentation. People people like keep it there. You know next to him on their Either on their nightstand around the table next to him. It's always there. We we really obsessed about the design. So even what's the right angle? So that when it sitting there on the docking station. It's it's at the perfect angle to do a video call. I don't have to be holding and then sees my face and I can easily see my grandchildren and the other thing is The audio quality. I'm always losing my headphones. And they're hard to plug in and they don't work rider. Bluetooth has dead. This has super loud front facing speakers. So it's the loudest talent. It's a custom built tablet that was made just for this age group so super loud that makes video calling easy but it makes music and I know you're listers love good. Oldies we hell. Yeah we have over thirty million songs. I can play some audio for you. It's loud. It's clear perfect to to hear.
Learning How to Forgive
"I don't subscribe to the idea people a- bad and I I don't subscribe to that because I believe that these inherent good in everyone. I think that crime It's all to be honest with you. Very relative What might be criminal in. Some communities are excused in other communities. Delia Muna was born in London and raised in Nigeria. Her mother is Nigerian and her father is from Sierra Leone. She went to college and Law School in the United States and then she became a public defender in Washington. Dc main motivation for me is that throughout my time as a public defender. I and as a Christian I operate from the presume that if Jesus swear on earth today he'd be a public defender. He was always defending people who were accused of various Nefarious activities Tax Collectors and you know Prostitutes and and and people that we will consider unsavory but as a public defender. I got to learn and appreciate that. Each person has a story and that my role as an advocate was to tell that story in a way that will shoot to the lead experiences to give voice to them I learned to appreciate the fact that but for the grace of God Right. and fat Human beings have the capacity for change today. We're talking about forgiveness. I'm phoebe judge. This is criminal I'd like to ask you about where you grew up in Nigeria and and how growing up. You saw forgiveness injustice Criminality in differently than than we do here right. So we're very very communal society and so compared to to the US where It seems that we exist in silos and a very much individual pull yourself up by your bootstraps sort of mentality in Nigeria we. It's sort of those mentality that if one person is going astray we all collectively are going astray. And so the idea is You know we rally people will rally around you to make sure that That you don't go astray and that if you do that there are resources particularly human resources to help you Sorta recalibrate Your life trajectory And that's really critically important. I guess it's kind of a flip the whole idea in on the head which is in other communities when someone does something bad it it looks bad upon the community. Exactly as opposed to here. Where if someone does something bad when this person must be intrinsically bad or evil and let's remove them from the society? Oh yes absolutely. You absolutely correct here. It's you did something you something that you did and in other communities. It's like well what? How did we fail? How could we have prevented this? And now that you have indeed some done something. What can we do to restore your humanity? What can we do to make sure that you become one of us The question becomes. When is enough enough? When is punishment enough? When can we say you have paid your dues? It's time to welcome you back into society because we still think you've got value. We still think there's much more that you can add to being a productive member of our community in two thousand eleven a twenty five year old woman Nimble Shonda Armstrong drove her car. Into New York's Hudson River with her three children inside later. Leshan to Armstrong's neighbors came forward and said they knew she was in trouble. The often heard yelling. Her landlord leader said that she asked him twice in six months to change the locks on her doors. Delia Luna wrote about Louis Armstrong and other women who'd committed similar crimes she asks how is it that American society bears no social responsibility to support. Its most vulnerable members. In raising their children she proposes that we watch out for each other not just watch each other but really look out and offer help as she says communities in Nigeria. Often do she writes. It's imperative that the legal system take steps to foster a sense of communal obligation towards the most vulnerable members of our society single mothers and their children in two thousand fifteen delia. Muna was made clinical professor of law at Harvard. The law school's first Nigerian professor. She's also the deputy director of Harvard's Criminal Justice Institute where Third Year Law Students under supervision. Essentially work is public defenders. We asked her to tell us about the cases that stay with her the most and she says it's the ones where children are charged with crimes. She told us about representing a nine year old girl and she was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and she was charged because while Throwing ten from classroom. She picked up a book a textbook and threw it at a teacher. Miss the teacher. The book hit the wall The child was promptly taken to a The principal's office and when she got there she was then arrested put in handcuffs. She was transported at the back of a police car and brought to the courthouse. She had to be placed in isolation so in solitary because she was nine years old and I went into speak with her so she is tiny little person and I was trying to explain to her. What my role was as her attorney and advocate and she had no idea Just even process in what that meant and she looked at me and she said where's my grandmother. And when can she take me back to school and then she said to me? Do you have any food? I'm hungry and so there. I was trying to figure out how to advocate for this child. In light of the very serious thing that she'd been charged with I mean assault with a dangerous weapon. book But clearly this child at other issues that we're contributing to Her behavior in class that day and he really will have been a very cruel and capricious thing for the legal system to continue. Its prosecution of her. It's easy to forgive a child and to consider all the social factors in play in their behavior. It's not always so easy to forgive adult. Well that's correct I it's easy when you paint a picture of a very vulnerable child but what about those evil adults and evil men and women who do such terrible things well. The truth is A An an an evil adult or terrible adult just didn't You know pop from just didn't become that way. They've had most likely a terrible childhood A childhood where they will likely abused likely neglected. And so you have children who wants. That's happened to them will indeed grow up to be adults who then Commit crimes I don't ever believe that an adult just takes actions without something being the catalyst for whatever it is. They that they've done and so it might be easier to forgive a child but if you delve deeper into the experiences the lived experience of an adult I think it makes it easier to forgive them once. You understand what it is that they've been through The prism through which they view life and sort of. What's happened to them?

My friend during the first week of January Lincoln reported that its users watched more than a half million hours of linked and learning. That sounds like a lot but the first week in April learners watched one point seven million hours of classes three times as many same transit true of other online learning platforms to among the heavy hitters in this category is core. Sarah launched in two thousand twelve. The platform offers virtual classes taught by university professors for a fraction of university prices. Since stay at home orders began. The company. Says there's been eightfold increase in enrollment in social science personal development and arts and humanities courses according to The Guardian? That's an unprecedented increase core. Sarah Chief Product Officer Shrub on Goalie told newspaper. So what's happening? Well like so. Many Corona virus related phenomena. A lot of things are happening at once. I of course it's simply that millions of people have been home and while parents are busier than ever trying to help their children learn online. Many people without kids at home have time on their hands. And there's only so much netflix you can watch can hear it amen. In addition millions of us are searching for ways to tame pandemic inspired anxiety both linked in learning and core Sarah have seen enormous enrollment jumps in classes designed to help us manage stress for instance core. Sarah serves up the yield course. The science of wellbeing last year.

Six million people have signed up for the class and on linked in learning over the last few weeks. People have been gravitating toward classes on mindfulness stress reduction and resilience. And then there's the elephant in the room layoffs as of last week. More than twenty six million. Americans had filed for unemployment. Some people are using.
