"In gay culture. Sure how large it is certainly a davick saying an always asked it. So this is not new is not know there. Saving such a magazine called davie magazine. I have a couple of old copy of somewhere because it's now used to kind of like we use like bears otters. Daddy is now part of that. Yes yes i guess. I think we'd make so many jokes about daddy's like nowadays. And i wonder like what is the underlying reason why that has a connection to gay men specifically. I think some of it has to do with issues should basket Daddy is more masculine. Some of the to with our issues one. Thanks that's true in certainly male relationships is that when two guys had sex. There is a power relationship between them. But it's a voluntary one. You know we talked about tops blossoms the power relationship. Let someone all get within. Its the botham. So that has the real power. And i think there's a lot of truth but society in general doesn't look online because it more matches heterosexual sex now that you're eighty six years old. How has your own relationship to sex changed. What would they get to be eighty. Six you don't have to lock sex. Which is all right. There is something about the testosterone levels going down. That's not only goes down. Graph the assets will take its will on your. I'm still sexually interested. But i've less opportunity. Of course it's obvious choose. I don't really want defending one. That's been there done that regarding dating and in your memoir you write about you. Know your great love of over twenty years william. Yes yes. I only bring him up now. Because the name on the screen for your your computer says william on the zoom ho. I i say if it's a password that your password password sorry escort ape high of twelve thousand. How gotcha my passwords at fast words. I can't get up but if you're asking me do i think about them. I would say every day. Don't stop loving and because that just messing into losing him. Is that why you say you've no interest in going through that again. no no. It's because of how much worked as a ball. I have close relationships. I'd loved that close relationship with the gresh. Sure i would wanna go through all the drama. That one goes through to have a love husband. Whatever last question about your sex life but sex was such a big part of your life or adulthood for so long now that you do have it less frequently is that do feel like a part of us missing or is it just. That's like what happens. And that's life off them actually. I i miss miss some of that but also he does a lot of disappointed that goes along with it slumped pain i could do without you know. I found that the more in love to people are the more easily this.

"Talked chris card to be aware of if you don't want your picture taken comments stand on. The other sought says a really big emphasis on discretion. Rush one the primary problems about being gay sense of loneliness and isolation you could go to the baths at have sex with a guy not know his name. You could go over central pollock here go to the bras pass and give get a blowjob. We go downtown to trucks to the sense thing but it wasn't a sense of affiliation between people what g. i a. which allowed gay men primarily to get to know each other in a setting other than just sex. You got to know each other people. You know trump this name. You might visit each other during the week. Now may seem strange today but in those days we can do that. I've never heard anybody articulate it like that before so like when i moved to new york city a couple years ago i was like okay. Where my gay friends. And you're saying that during those days early seventies that there was no conception of that it was just kind of like one off experience not a community of people if it was like boys in the band that a self hating gay men were very jealous. Look at johnson. And who were very sad with jay and there was similar organizations in other cities as well. You got to know people as people you laugh together. You went on and saps together cursing the police. So that city council the hawaii cars and you have that sense of camaraderie. One day at the end of the dance way have a demonstration. We walked from the fire house over to the building of a councilman who is holding up the civil rights. Bill if a thousand guys walking up the street over to his building to shout has allowed us. Rate can two o'clock in the morning and wake everybody up. That was a goal in fact. He wasn't supporting. He knew he wasn't didn't make any difference. The point is was was to have this. Demonstration has the police show up. Have the reporters and cameramen show and make a big sympathize. Offit lately what big simas. Big a big deal but like you said. you're jewish. You know. I am clarifying what you said. We will like an organism in the street marching with a sense of camaraderie and friendship with each other. That sort of thing was different than what companies all. That kind of reminds me of a moment. He wrote about in your book for the ferryman about how during the earliest pride marches. You would walk up to people in. Greet them by saying happy birthday. It was as if we'd all been reborn. And i think that's kind of magical. I just had never heard that detail before. Oh yeah we all wait. Does that every year. Not only at the firehouse. As a saturday night dances. That would be an officer at the door and when the person would come in the office will be there to say welcome and shake his hand which you say things like that were very important. They were meant to fight the isolation we experienced in those days. Been for instance. When i walked through though still the first time someone came over to me and shook my hand that said welcome. I was shocked. Jump the cape person in those days one high. Here's coming over talking tonight. And then in june during pride you would greet each other with happy birthday. Yes we shake hands and say happy birthday that changed when it became a parade when it changed from a march to a parade..

Excellent asking like did you feel like a like a celebrity in the gay community someplace. It's my name is connected with it. But i really do like to say these changes that occurred. Not because of any one person as anyone time for this. Really the sum total of a number of people ho fought sometimes against the enemy. Sometimes with a druther.

Power Grids Feel the Pressure of Intense Storms

"Hurricane ida crumpled a major transmission tower. That survived katrina sixteen years ago building infrastructure. That strong enough is hard when the target keeps moving because storms are getting stronger energy consultant alison silverstein says utilities and their regulators can take planning cues from murphy's law. We need to assume that everything possible that could go wrong is going to go wrong. Simultaneously and murphy is always gonna win. President biden's climate plan includes a much bigger role for electricity electric cars. For example cutting carbon footprint says easier with electricity from emission free sources like wind solar and nuclear. But even those have to stand up to extreme weather putting wires underground may seem obvious but engineering professor destiny. Knock at carnegie mellon university says that won't always work in hurricane country where you might have under grounded. The lines to protect them from wind putting them underground makes them more susceptible to flooding knock. Says it's never just one thing that's going to keep the lights. On energy experts. We interviewed agree on a few basic ideas though. They say the grid should be more decentralized so the whole thing doesn't shut down at once. More generation out in communities such as solar power would accomplish that but new orleans utility energy has resisted calls for just that to the frustration of local activists at mit engineering professors. Or up. a mean says not all the fixes are technical. He says power companies also need to become more agile and do more when responding to storms the fact that some utilities are not able to sort of respond immediately is also another kind of failure which is perhaps as drastic as the infrastructure. Failures is assuming outages will happen. Amin says utilities should focus more on dispatching generators even before a storm to make sure important facilities and vulnerable populations get electricity restored as soon as possible. All this cost money that usually ends up in utility bills. Congress is working on major funding through infrastructure bills. That could address some of these issues. There also focused on president. Biden's climate goals including zeroing out greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five.

"In a few trading to denver. You're not losing denver. I mean that'll help denver. But they're not even going to be their best team in their own division and you're playing in a week and division and if you have jordan leisure quarterback then you can still win that division. You might not be the superbowl caliber team. And maybe that's what management thought. Let's go all out. One more year with aaron rodgers. Try to win a super bowl and then maybe it's best for both parties to divorce. But i would have definitely traded him. If i thought jordan love could play. That's the tricky part of all of this. If they knew jordan. Love absolutely bisque. When patrick mahomes got to camp it didn't take long for the veterans to realize. Oh my god. Like alex. Smith came off one of his best seasons all pro. They would twelve and four and they knew it's the same thing that happened with the chargers. When when herbert got there it was like. Oh okay all right. There's something different and get doesn't take long. And of course. Then they punctured tyrod. Taylor's lung accidentally air quotes air quotes yes porn. It's interesting if they had traded for. The denver broncos picked that day denver had the ninth pick of the two thousand twenty one draft. Justin fields was available at eleven. I don't live they what you've already. Then you've wasted a first round. Pick with jordan right and and got into this situation in you know not everybody's sold on justin fields like you you. I would've traded him. I would've traded a lot of different offers here imagining ed. To number three pick. Overall san francisco is going to say we want rogers and he'd say went the three pick and we want this in this. San francisco is built to win. Now you could even say we'll give you jimmy garoppolo and garoppolo could help your team now or at least the next couple of years. Then you could give jordan. Love time to develop. I just think at some point you have to say. I can't let one player do this to me. In the nfl in basketball it happens but not in the nfl jimmy in chicago. Jimmy was happy to hear that. Rogers is back I felt like i was hearing his name for the thousands of tiny summer. Sure it'll be here and get a few more going forward but I i would say out the season though the ultimate sluggish too the packers come to chicago. Baby come to the bears. How awesome seeing that. David go get here jimmy. Yes mclovin did wear vikings you. I know i know. But if you say to rogers you pick whatever. Afc team you want and we'll send you there you want. The raiders will send you there. Yes you know how. Sometimes when a quarterback our players traded to team sports center puts the graphic up there them in their uniform bill.

"I was just sitting here thinking about how first of all what no one time for chat row. I was sitting here thinking about jordan. Love he has to have one of the best support systems in the world. He's probably the only person that was in milwaukee that didn't celebrate this The books championship. I mean you're assigned peace. You ever dated a girl and found out you that they win love. She was in love with you but come to find out all she wanted to do was make jokes and soon as they get back together and leaves you only outside. I wonder what the hell is would be about this guy three years from now. I really do because it's gonna be messed up thank you. Yeah i feel bad for jordan love. You don't ask for this. It's tough enough to come in and try to play in the nfl. Start in the nfl. And then you're going to succeed. One of the great quarterbacks of all time rogers dealt with it as well you got to be wired gotta be wired differently and i remember when roger's got there and i was told by somebody who's friends with farve that far set. His job is not to help. Aaron rodgers not to raise aaron rodgers. I you know. I gotta do my job. It's his his job to kind of keep up with me. And i i guess rogers likes jordan. Love i don't know how much how many tutorials are going on here. But hopefully he takes him under his wing a little bit if he knows he's not going to be there just to help him at least get a chance to succeed but jordan. Love's gonna come in with some big expectations going to be like okay. You're the guy we had to draft and that meant we had to get rid of aaron rodgers here and the fan base is tricky. Because i don't know if aaron cares about the fan base it feels like the last twenty four hours. Somebody in his camp cares about the fan base. Because they're like we told you not about money you know we just treated mistreated. We want to take back. Hey rambo call back. Get the band together again. It feels like there's a hey we're guy here not us Mike in las vegas. Hey mike they might. By mike neil in michigan. Hey neil how are we doing today. Hey but so. I think it's quite simple. What aaron rodgers wants. He just wants to feel that management is all in a win in the super bowl which means during the season trades adding some people. I mean the packers defense is terrible. Their offense has to weapons. That did wait this had to do with. Hey i don't know of management's all in on winning a super bowl after going to the nfc title game absolutely. We have a philosophy to build from within. They don't go and get free agents and that's not good enough as a lifelong packer. Fan management this management team is not all in on winning the super bowl thereon longevity. That did all right. Well thank you. I'm guessing if you've gone back and nfc titled games that you know you would be all in. They have salary cap issues as well. I mean do they reach out to the saints with michael. Thomas micheal thomas is not happy does aaron rodgers. Say hey can you get me michael thomas. How far is too far because of rodgers now feels like. Hey and they're gonna listen to me. I i go back to michael jordan. When michael jordan wanted to add some players to the bulls and management said no michael in management made the right decisions so the greatest basketball player of all time.

Trans & Jewish World-Building - Becky Silverstein, Laynie Solomon

"You just tell us a little bit about the project and what. That's all about also do you pronounce trans-hub project or trans halacha project pronunciation question cellini. We get their abbot. Even before we jump in on what the project is maybe will it. Just define our terms here right. Maybe we'll just define trans and then we'll pass it over to laney to pronounce undefined For us so what does it mean that. This is a trans project. Had we define trans for ourselves. And i think this is a definition to that one can use in the wider world right. Where trans or transgender is used as an umbrella term for anyone who knows themselves to be a gender that's different than the gender. They were assigned at birth. Folks may be like gender assigned at birth. What does that mean. is this a thing. We still do our world and of course it is right like people give birth. We look at the baby's we look at their genitalia. And we say it's a boy it's a girl and assign a particular gender based on those primary sex characteristics and then we started a forest fire. That's right and then we start a forest fire on. That actually happens a few months before birth when we're announcing the child's gender even before they're born and to be honest i'm so done with the conversation about gender reveal parties by never have to hear about another one. It would be amazing. Ya dan you know. Yeah and so. We know that when people say it's a boy or girl that folks as they're growing up and moving through the world sometimes they're like oh these words boy girl That are constructed at in the cultures in which we grow up at. Don't actually feel right to us. They don't match my internal sense itself. Those folks may choose to identify as transgender. So this is a project of the trans halacha project focused on the experience of transgender people. And it's a project facilitated by and largely participated in by by transport as well.

It's Not Just Texas: The Entire Energy Grid Needs An Upgrade For Extreme Weather

"The electricity grid is more than wires. It's also power plants big transmission towers and local utilities. Everything that gets electricity to you. Much of that infrastructure was designed for a different era says energy consultant alison silverstein. We plan this grid for us inherit weather and we are now facing mad max. These pop culture references are silverstein colorful way of saying that what worked in the nineteen fifties sixties and seventies needs to be updated for a future that includes climate change. Everybody has always designed these systems looking in the rear view mirror that made sense grid. Managers identified the worst case scenario from the past and planned for that but climate change is delivering whether that hasn't been experienced before the number of weather disasters with losses over a billion dollars is increasing according to the federal government and the group climate central says that since two thousand there's a sixty seven percent increase in major power outages from weather and climate related events. Each region has its own vulnerabilities. Take the pacific northwest. And it's massive hydropower dams for example. Not only do we need to be worried about the cold weather events like he signed texas and the the hot weather events like in california ben kiala is at the northwest power and conservation council. They recently changed their planning models to look ahead and better prepare for how climate change alters win water flows through the dams. He says warming temperatures make it likely that mountain snow pack will melt earlier in the year. And you have a lot more water running into those reservoirs in the winter when it used to be more of a spring phenomenon and it might be that by summer. You're pretty much. All the snow. Pack melted everything off. And you don't have that much precipitation and you just have way less energy in the summer grid. Experts generally agree. The country needs to build more transmission lines to get electricity from where it's produced to where it's needed. That would make it possible to add more cleaner. Sources of power like wind turbine solar projects in batteries to store energy. Larry gas diker heads wires. A trade group advocating for more high voltage transmission lines. He points out that president biden set a goal of net zero carbon emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five. That may sound like a long time from now but in the world of building transmission It's really not that far off when you think you need a good ten here. Lead time in order to get there and gas tiger says all that new transmission infrastructure big towers. Thick lines comes with a steep price tag. Our study said up to ninety billion dollars of investment by twenty thirty maybe as much as six hundred billion an investment by two thousand fifty gas tiger suspects the texas blackout. While encouraged policymakers to move on this issue. Soon as expensive as this sounds the texas experience shows. There's also a cost of not preparing the grid for more extreme weather in dollars and lives jeffrey. Npr

"Right automated we want to automate things that computers can do for us. The other part of it is supercharge. What i'll call supercharging right which is basically the ability to The ability to basically give the experience a kind of make it super efficient and make it more seamless and the kind of the call center cars both of those those those elements. And there's a lot. I've most of the brands that i've been involved with the human is not. You can't replace human like if you're in if you're in an in home sales or you're you're selling homes. You can't replace a human in that if you have a complex question about a about an annuity or or about some you know. Some sort of financial product replacing the human is not is not the goal of the experience with the goal of the experiences to make it. So that you get to the right human and that that that that the conversation has been queued up and that we've made it a nice pleasurable experience that that has a feels right. Pushing buttons on a phone does not feel nearly as as intuitive as like saying you know what really i wanna check my. I wanna check the amount. That's on my account and and the machine saying great. Here's the balance. We've got this balanced here with you. What else would you like to do. And they can keep interacting in that fashion versus listening to these really long problems and then pressing buttons and you know and that's just the major time waster of people in general you know. I don't know franck still around. Franck schneider from speakeasy. But that's one of the things speak as he does really well. Is it similar to what google contact center. I does as well. Which is the concept of age assist. So the ball. The ball handles the call. If it can handle it can handle it if it can't that determines who is should send it to on when the agent connects with the bought. The ball sits around and listens on. It gives suggestions in it post from knowledge. Base isn't it suggests that the things to to to do you know so it's a concept of yes if you can handle it within the within the call it if it can't if it needs a human send it to the human within the balkans stick around and actually help the human you know by suggesting and all this kind of stuff you know suggested content just transactions and and then the human connection to trend as well so if you if you know about the boss suggestion your load of rubbish and you can say. I don't need this. I need that so it's like a. It's like a win win situation. Yeah yeah and then also the other thing is passing the right information off frightening because it be to make sure that that information flow happens all the way from and there's nothing more frustrating than than calling up somebody entering a bunch of things and then saying oh. Yeah by the way. What were you calling about again. Who are you. Yeah definitely definitely times. I've gone through a an idea and given all the information and then go to the other end and you have just say the whole thing all over again. It's a it's a nightmare. So we've got a discussion here. An ad wada coin again around so summit said the internal use case alignment is certainly important with content. Yes costs and then eduardo said the some the other important desi is a single owner of the experience across all channels as opposed to the silos ship in talking about here..

"Call length all those things. Would you concur with the student. i would. I'd like my experience. It's kind of organizational right meaning because you have a call center and the teams that that handle these things are like so in my experience of working with with the call centers. I've seen where most of the people who handle the ivr's are the tech teams like they don't have like there's no user experience person as even close to that right. The only way user experience person gets involved in that situation is that they literally go actively seek that out. That's what i've done with with several of these other companies. Say hey look. This is a primary channel that we've got a lot of people coming through. How can we make this better overall. But i think a lot of it has to do with this organizational way that that that that the call centers are kind of on their own we our digital product teams which are working on on all of these things that are saying. Hey we're trying to engage and get and get really great experiences whereas the call center is just like they're on their own and they have an organizationally they they work in this kind of a little bit of an antiquated fashion. Where you have. You typically have a ba you have the tech team and then you have the call center leads who are basically saying. This is how we want it to go right among thing..

"It wasn't total voice but it was more of a actually doing some some some items within slack and but anyway so that was kind of where it all started. And that's how kind of started with this kind of journey of getting involved in integrating with voice and you exit the same time When it started to make sense you know. But i'm i'm usually sold on it. I i really see the power of it You know the the the mazing thing about boys in general is just is the handsfree aspect of it and then as we start to get technology that becomes this kind of omnipresent a thing. That's kind of where we don't have to have our attention. Focus on something. We don't hold it and we can do things that are hands. Free voice becomes really super powerful. The in way to integrate with technology The integrate with with kind of a with businesses as well but definitely with services and products for sure. Nice shout franck schneider. He said he's a cool dude. Franco's coolest sometimes you said sweet lid kin. And i think he means the heart. I think that's philly for heart so thank you might get you one for christmas. A thank you. So i'm interested in your. You've mentioned prototype a few times and you mentioned you know like getting something you know. I think what you said. That initially was unpacking. Something i wanna. I wanna robot to show me how that's pocket figure out what that actually is so. It's obviously this is the kind of process you x. Mind kind of taken away that You've mentioned the word prototype number times. Obviously we got connected through voice floor. You've been used some time. So i'm wondering you can kind of walk us through your typical. What was a typical process. Look like from idea to either validation or to you know take something into being kind of produce like you know what is your process composition design. And and how is it similar or different to typical. You ex design so speak. Yeah so i would say that. The process is i is identical. Meaning like so. You're you're starting with kind of identifying the goals of the project you know aligning stakeholders along. What success looks like You know doing your research You know One of the things that i bet and then you know and then creating something and then putting in in front of user so i mean so the process is i would say is very similar. Meaning like as i as you x. Designer i think the process is pretty simple. We we. I think a lot of times. We over complicate what actual you ex design is with all of the techniques and things that we got to do and and all of that but basically what when it comes down to the real basics of design it is figure out what the business needs to get done figuring out what problems that the users have figuring out. What is the kind of the intersection between these two items. Like how could we basically make it so business gets what it needs to get done and the users get what they need as well And then trying to build a bunch of sauce and testing it. You know you build something you put it in front of people you see how it how it behaves and then you and then you revise and the and the interest rate so. I don't think that that kind of global process you know. Change is really funny. I there's a really really good video. By don norman recently talking about kind of design and he kind of laid it out like really like how simple design sort of is when you when you get down to like meaning from From really high level conceptual process of it..

"You're talking about education you're talking about. You're talking about the high. How're you doing today. Mr silverstein nice. Nice to talk to you When most people are just like. I need this done. Thank you very much for the pleasantries. I appreciate you being nice. But i need to get this done and move on with my life. I'm not calling you to be already didn't want to do in the first place. Yeah especially especially with the financial institutions government organizations. You know banks insurance most of those companies are. You're dead right. It's people don't go there because they want to go there because they have to. You know i. I worked for quite a while and government service design and it's like nobody comes to any government organization because they want to. It's not something that they want to really do. It's usually something that's gone wrong. And they need to sell it out or something that they have to do. Because otherwise i can't fly with spot or a park without a permit or can't drive without tax and so it's like it's stuff that you just have to do and so it's like there's nothing worse than having to do something and then trying to do it on not being able to do it. Which is why why websites this is where the value of of of the i've as well and we'll move onto some. It's a minute. But i think that's where some of the value is because because websites in some cases quite hard to get right you know. Large government organizations large insurance companies large banks massive websites swathes of content very difficult to find navigate. It's never usually written in plain english. It's never that easy to digest. So it's actually quite hard to to get what you need to get out of it you know and being able to just have a compensation the strips back all of the stuff that you don't need and just get straight to the point and delivers them. What you need to deliver on is is absolutely ideal you know. Yeah and the other thing kind of part of that like you know the one of the other things that that on the are is is i find authentication. Right mean because that's kind of that part of it that kind of like you're talking about the idea that you know you're not calling because you want to but you calling because you have to and then you spend all of this kind of authenticating and getting up to speed and all of these other things and these are the areas where you either surprise and delight somebody saying i. I entered my social. I'm ready to go. I just talk to somebody and get and move on my way or use like no. I need your blood type. I need your date of birth. I need the the last four of the The the last name of kindergarten teacher on all of these other inane things that we do To verify and you know hopefully we'll we'll get better at this as a as an industry as we get you know as we. We evolve With with all these authentications. I think the passwords are the evil that the worst evil ever met. You know that we've ever ever invented and that once we get to biometrics that they're baked into these things..

She's the spirit behind the sixteen nineteen project at the New York Times which was a takeover of the New York Times magazine as well as an incredible podcast series as well as an upcoming series of books and Articles. All of which are meant to help us further. Understand the way that slavery and it's a long lingering effects have shaped so many aspects of America so widely so deeply that she calls America a slave. Crecy Nicole's also done extraordinary work exploring education and racism. She's an intellectual bad ass. Who's got a MacArthur genius? Grant and a job at the New York Times and a mind full of brilliant ideas. I mean I listened to her and she just blows me away. She's awesome and I'm so honored to have had her on the show. It's the Great Nicole. Hannah Jones on tour ACO when the sixteen nineteen printed project came out. There was this thrill among black people like walking around like caring and cling to it holding onto it and like is like so important. Did you feel that excitement when like people were finally getting their hands on it? And like this is so great. Yeah it was like most amazing thing my life really. I I mean I. I hope we were making something powerful. I knew it was important. But as you know that doesn't mean that people will respond to it in that way and The response far exceeded exceeded any expectation. We we had. What was the pitch that I made to the Times this because this came from you not somebody saying. Hey imagine something but you said No. Let's do something no I I I've been thinking about sixty nine thousand four very long time and I'd been on booklet for about a year and a half and The first thing I pitch when I got back from book leave in January. It was the project and The pitch was very simple We have I I I talked to my editor about it. And then we have a weekly ideas meeting For the magazine and I just brought it up at the meeting and I said that This August will mark the four hundred aniversary of the first enslaved Africans being sold into Virginia and that most Americans have never heard of that date and that I wanted to dedicate an entire issue the magazine to assess as the ongoing legacy whole issue. It's not an article now the whole thing because what I said was that the argument of the magazine would be that you can look across all of these aspects of American life capitalism democracy. Why would only western industrialized country without universal health? Care our culture our legal system that almost nothing has been left untouched by the legacy and I wanted the magazine to look at a modern modern phenomenon across America life and then trace it back to the legacy of slavery and that we were going to be able to make these connections in a way that they hadn't been made and really Do a project place slavery. Actually at the center of the American story and immediately Jake Silverstein. The editor in Chief of the magazine was Ike. Let's do it. That was it and I mean that has been took off from there. I mean what this specific project but it has been part of your genius at getting major media institutions to say yes. Let's do a major project on a very specific deep issue of racism. Right I I came to know your work with you to two major pieces of segregation for this American Life. Yeah and now this major multimedia project for the New York Times just for those of us who are in those spaces or entering those bases. How do we get a room? Full of white folks say yes. We will dedicate a ton of space to segregation or a ton of space to the Slovak crecy of America. When they know a lot of the audience will be like. This makes me uncomfortable. Yeah I think to be clear. It wasn't that big organizations always wanted to say. Yes sir working on these issues for almost twenty years and There were certainly times in my career. Where with a struggle to get my news organization to allow me to do. The work wanted to do. But I think what What I has the benefit of. I've been studying this for twenty five years. I'm obsessed with it. I read widely on the history of raise on the sociology of raise. I have always treated it as an investigative story. And Not Simply. Let me show you how black people are at the bottom of this indicator. Let me show you this Segregation exists because that's not interesting. People know that anything you measure black people suffer the most from it but I always make them. I'm GONNA show you the architecture of it. I'm GONNA show you the intention of it and it's going to be investigative and it's GonNa be surprising to people and I think that's what once you have success doing that. Of course it becomes easier to convince people to let you do it but I think what? My work is always surprising to. People like people are not surprised segregation exist but when? I show them actually. There was a thirty year decision by the Federal Government. Not Enforce Fair housing laws. You know when I can say actually. We don't have universal healthcare because we have fought back against social programs because we thought black people would benefit them for more than one hundred and fifty years. I think it's that of surprise but also really the rigor of the scholarship Racist one of those things because everybody has a race that everybody thinks they know dislike covering education. Everybody thinks they understand how public education should work. Because they've gone to school and when you can approach them With the argument that they never thought they never knew is shocking to them surprising to them. I've been able to to sell those arguments and then you also have to actually be able to deliver compelling narrative rigors scholarship Get people to talk to you. All of those kind of normal reporting things as well.

How Ad Exec Nancy Reyes Became Undeniable

"You got into Harvard. You go you graduate. What led you into advertising. It was a total non-intentional thing. I had a consulting job in Boston. I had a boyfriend in Boston. Thought I was going to stay there. It was all great and then prep for prep called. And they said there's an advertising agency named Olga Lee who wants to diversify their student body. We think you should meet them and I said that's okay already have a job and then come on. You never know I went and they flew me on a plane and they picked me up in a black car and I mean I would do a lot of things with those accoutrements. I mean it was incredible and I walk into this place with a red carpet. I get put into an office on my own. I get fed and people come in to see me. I'm I'm like the guest of honor and I had maybe twenty or twenty one interviews and I was really impressed and I left and they gave me an offer for what was a lot of money at the time and they were doing it because they knew important. Money is to someone who has got to figure out how to pay student loans. And I've got to send money back home. I don't have money. Money again. Becomes an issue. How did you get good I think I got good. There's one major moment. I think that I think I was fine. Is What the really answer. I was fine for about five years. I was adequate and then I moved from New York to Francisco and I started working at a at the time. It was the best advertising agency in the world. A place called a good be Silverstein and partners in San Francisco had been there for a year. Maybe I was a little bit arrogant and my boss called me into his office for a one year review and I'm sitting here sunshine on my ass and he said you're not as good as I thought you would be ha- and I remember thinking neither you. I'm not impressed by you. I went home. I was mad I was so mad. We'll beat did you say that or deduce myself but when I remember it I like to remember that I said to him but I didn't set it to myself. I go home. I'm really mad that I had a minute to think about it and I said I have. I haven't been as good. I haven't been I feel like I've just been floating through this thing. I haven't been great and that turned me to be great. Because what is the difference in what you do between being good and being great the differences authority respect compassion. Fight the fight that you can that you can muster up. We were constantly trying to convince and their organizations to do things. We're looking for brave. Bravery brave partners and many many many clients and many many brands are brave. But the difference is do I help them be brave? Do I help them play it safe? And if I'm really good at my job is the brave side. You spent eleven years ago that right something like that. Yeah and you're in their San Francisco office. You thought you'd retire there. What happened as I sit with you in a New York office of a didn't work out? I didn't happen well. Let's see I got pregnant with my second kid and I decided I need to move to New York because our families are both based in New York and good be says You opened up New York for us so we opened up the New York office and Dream Dream job. It was incredible best of times worse times. It was really hard. It is New York after all and it eventually shutdown. We found everybody jobs and shut down because the business was just not the same. The environment was just not the same. The Hustle was different. It was just different. Did that feel like a failure? A hundred percent. It still feels like a failure. It still feels like a failure. Even though again I can rationally tell myself well. These were the conditions that you were dealing well with. This client fell through well. This thing happened. That thing happened and I can make a pretty good argument as to why none of it is my fault but it feels entirely my fault soon. What did you learn from? The I learned to fight for myself a little harder. I was going through a really rough time. I was trying to keep the office open. My husband had been diagnosed with cancer. I just had a second kid. I was breastfeeding in the bathroom. And I was trying to help the San Francisco office be Great. I was trying to help New York great. I had a two hour. Vote bride every night to and from work. I think it was a moment where I did that thing. Where how many things can I do? I ate how many chores can I take on and it was one it was just. I don't know too many so I learned to do that again. I remember my husband was waiting for me to finish a pitch meeting with a client that we didn't end up winning. He was waiting for me before he would not let the doctors take him inside the operating room because he wanted me to be done with my pitch because he was trying to be nice to me about that and he wanted to say he loved me before he went into surgery and I rushed home and all this ridiculous traffic and he you know he said what he said is wonderful things and he goes in there and then he comes out and we find out years appendix cancer. And I think did I really just spend my time in a pitch meeting? I mean what is wrong with me? This is all wrong. It's all wrong all wrong. So that's the thing I learned is just rebalanced refects. This is not right. What do I care about what I want to be around? Did you find that? Did you did you? Were you able to reach her that I did I did? I had a little stint on the client side so verizon that's verizon and it was. It was an incredible experience but I did not find any relief from anxiety or pressure or stress and I felt really alone. is a great company. Great Organization. Lots of wonderful things about it but it just wasn't it wasn't for me. Can you explain for those of us? Who Don't know what the differences between being in house and being at an agency. Yeah I can tell you what my will my experiences like but most clients who work on the in house as you as you referred to it Often I guess it's changing these days but have been clients for quite some time and Many of them in the marketing world tend to be incredibly creative incredibly strong and they often have to make very Big Presentations and sales presentations to their internal product companies because marketing is a discipline on. Its own so you often have to fight for that money it's It's an investment. Not a cost and that argument is sometimes difficult to make. The agency side is more known as the creative just the creative side and It just has a different approach to it. We don't as much with the corporate world unless we're interfacing with our clients so it gives us the ability to have perspective and be super creative. But we're not in it and It was a valuable lesson to me to be on the client side to have true understanding of what a client goes through advertising as one twelfth of their job the pressures they face the culture that they live within the constant challenge to the investment discipline the staff the impact of marketing on business mean. That is a big time job. A big big time job and a creative agency is best equipped to respect that once once we respect that and we understand that. We're going to go a lot farther than we do. If we just think all they do is

What Else Did Shel Silverstein Write?

"Decades ago in the evenings around closing time a man with a very bald head and a very dark beard used to come sloping into the mysterious bookshop in New York City. His shoulders hunched is the warding off a perpetual cold wind. The proprietor auto pens ler had come to expect these visits indeed. He looked forward to them. He would close up the shop and guide the man back to his. Inner Sanctum. A book lined study with floor-to-ceiling shelves there the bearded man would deliver a Sheaf of papers containing a new freshly penned mystery story to be added to the theology. That Pencil publishing the writer refused to take any money for his efforts. Even though pens lawyer was paying well. He craved compensation. His eyes gleamed as pennsly- slid his payment across the desk between them. It was a stack of used books containing dozens of stories written in the mystery genre later that night he would devour them one by one but first pens lawyer and the bearded man would talk and talk. They talked about books about life. Auto pens layer was just recovering from a devastating break-up and so they spoke about battling in a recent phone interview for this article. Pennsly- remembered that at a certain juncture. His guests said something so piercingly insightful and eloquent about the break up that it took his breath away Henseler said I wish I could remember what he said but I failed to write it down what I do remember. Is that when I expressed my amazement at his facility with words he just shrugged and said I guess that's why they call me a poet. He could've added among many other things because our bald and bearded man was Shel Silverstein a true renaissance man. Of course many of us know him as the author and illustrator of the giving tree a light in the attic and where the sidewalk ends among many of the other wildly successful books that he wrote Andrew for children. That's only the tip of the proverbial Iceberg Silverstein also drew cartoons and wrote plays for adults and penned numerous songs especially country songs. In fact he won. Two grammys for song. Writing one of them for the Johnny Cash. Hit A boy named Sue Sheldon Allen. Shel Silverstein was born into a Jewish family in Chicago in nineteen thirty his father and a bakery which only began to thrive in the wake of the Great Depression. After high school. Shell spent some time studying at the Art Institute of Chicago and later Roosevelt University but was drafted into the US army serving in Korea and Japan. Silverstein began working for the military periodical. Stars and Stripes and it was there that he began regularly publishing his idiosyncratic cartoons after his military service Silverstein got a job as a cartoonist. For the fledgling magazine. Playboy for his playboy gig. He traveled the world sending cartoon dispatches from Bahrein wide in nineteen sixty three Silverstein. Met Book Editor Ursula Nordstrom. Who prodded him into writing books for Children? And that same year he wrote the giving tree a book about the nature of Altruism and selfishness there would become his most famous and popular work his sense of the absurd and the whimsical cartoon line drawings that illustrated this and all of his books would become his hallmarks in deceptively simple language. His exploration of the innocence and imagination of childhood made him one of the most celebrated and widely read authors for generations of children and adults like Auto Penn's lair recall Silverstein telling him that he spent a year living at the playboy mansion as a guest of Hugh Hefner. It was there that he met Susan Hastings with whom he had daughter named Shoshana in nineteen seventy tragically. Susan died in nineteen seventy five and two. Shana passed away. Unexpectedly after cerebral aneurysm. In one thousand nine hundred two by many accounts her death utterly devastated Silverstein in Nineteen eighty-four. He had a son named Matthew with Sarah Spencer. According to Pens Ler Silverstein was a deeply eccentric. Man Pennzoil told us for instance. It wasn't unusual for him to be having dinner in a restaurant with a group of friends and then suddenly announced that he was done. Get up take a taxi to the airport and flight of Chicago or Los Angeles or Florida or wherever he felt like going on the spur of the moment shel. Silverstein died of a heart attack in nineteen ninety nine at the age of just sixty eight but in story song and image. He left behind a remarkably prolific artistic record.

"There's Something About Mary" Actor: W. Earl Brown Interview

"My next guest is one of the most talented diverse actors i've ever had on the show. Please welcome w earl brown to the show. He's one of the best actors on a plane. That's certainly one of my favorites earl house like treating it today. It's going pretty excellent. I'm gonna tell you right now. I'm gonna kiss your ass. We're here you have perhaps the funniest pin tweet i have ever read in my life and i'll for those of you that are listening. I will go through a really quick in my career. I've been killed twenty twenty eight times so far. I've killed over forty and i lost my baseball that pretty much sums it up. I mean i could not stop laughing that assist in half to say so. I'm reading some ear your tweets here before i get into your life a little bit one. I completely agree with your take on casting directors actors and how they should receive some type of recognition from the from the academy. I am so on board with you on that. That was the first thing i thought when i saw that david but rubin has been named president of the academy that that finally they should be able to get recognition because it's the only department in in all of l. making the only department head. There's a head of casting that there's no oscar recognition in the never has been <hes> and that that's that's wrong so hopefully it will okay so that's that's insane because i have to tell you earl the fact that i had jackie burch on the show. I want to see a year ago. I mean she was the backbone for those unbelievable unbelievable. John hughes movies early on. She's one of the best casting directors on the planet and people don't know that because they know that but there's no you're right. There's gotta be some type recognition for these people's great work. Yeah i'm on board and two more things before we get to your life. You're a huge kiss fan. Is that accurate well. I'm a huge music fan rights across the board. That's like a lot of live shows on but yes as as a kid one of the things that right around the time. I thought i technically cognizant thought that i want to be in movies. I was a ratted kiss fan. Yes <hes> um and then <hes> so <hes> yeah. I've i've gone through numerous times over. You must follow my tweets. I am i'm going on the kiss cruise. I've been invited in years past to go and i can finally do it. I finished production on the show. I'm working on right now. <hes> <hes> right about the time of the crew so that was like you know what i'm going to one of my one of my buddies musician buddies from nationals going with me because my wife has desire higher hispanic tomorrow night in charleston. South carolina is legitimate like crews career away for a couple of weeks. Is that how that work yet. It's a five day cruise. It's a music cruise. I've done it the outlaw country cruise which is x._m. Series <music> outlaw and they do it in conjunction with six men. Six men also produces. The kiss cruise routes on the same boat. It's the same everything that's how i've been invited it. 'cause i've gotten to know all those guys and they found that i was a kiss. Fan like me just spoke so i'm finally doing for me. The twenty five hundred trunking rolling all night darting in every day in the guest navy man gene gene gene simmons does not get enough credit. He's done some beautiful things with make a wish kids but that's another story for another time. Do some really sweet things that people don't know about but the last tweet that i wanted to just before we get into your life is your recognition of the show the boys on prime. How freaking greed is that show. I i love it. I still got to shoot episodes. I think left to go yeah saddam idiots. It's it's disturbing. I'm riveted to it <hes> with you know it's such a social satire commentary on the world. We live in business that worked and the political system that we're all living. It's it's really really good and when you think about it and i won't ruin it for you because you have to left but when you think about it though it's that's exactly how superheroes would be if they existed. They wouldn't be like the marvel crew. They would be exactly like this right. Okay so let's get into your mazing life man here so you're born in western kentucky so the acting buds bog in performance bug has got a bite you right that grandparents grandparents house right because they do a lot of i don't wanna see entertaining because that's a terrible war. They put a well. How would you phrase it was the fourth i peter peter i ever attended was my grandparents torch it. Was you know it was farming. Culture and on the weekends are on sundays usually sunday afternoons afternoons after church. That's where everyone would gather. Isn't that was the one day they wouldn't be working. <hes> the the first time i really thought that i i wanna do that. I mentioned earlier of freshman year in high school three movies that just blew me away that it was the summer seventy seven seventy eight <hes> star wars halloween animal house. Those are the ones youngest pre trees videotape rentals. You know if you saw movie you had to see skaters so the movies i went back to seek multiple times where those three and they were the ones that really planted the seed. I've told by a family friend. I do do not remember this but i can remember being the ham as a kid telling jokes that stuff but she swears when i was around five years old at my grandmother's house. She said what she goes. You look to being you said monday. I'm going to be an actor in movies. I don't i don't remember it but she he swears so i guess that seat was planted earlier animal house. You have to say one of the things that you have that is really difficult difficult to get either. You have it or you don't that's my opinion on. This is a sense of humor because i i always have those people who say well. I'm funny like if you have to tell somebody. You're funny earl. You're not not funny and i believe that you've got that about you. Thanks there is there is a thing of timing that is kind of an inherent thing that if people don't have it you can't learn it <hes> it is an innate thing that really goes to the any kind of skill in any creative pursuit <hes> but yes. I do think there's a lot of great stand up comics folks who were not good actors and there's a lotta great actors who can't do comedy. I always found myself drawn towards the uh the artists that kind of <hes> did everything and shell silverstein and kris kristofferson and you know musicians as in writers and painters actors don't really think it all comes from the same place is different skill sets crafts skills involved also but that that need to create live in the moment and we share that with that i think is universal. No that's really really well said and i was talking to aunt cusak who's in the boys and she brought up second city in chicago and she was talking about that and how how that how you mentioned timing right so she was really focused on the timing part of it so it's interesting to hear you say it that way. It's really really well federal and it's it's just a story from my resume in how you approach stuff i i was a rabid seinfeld fan and i ended up getting cast on seinfeld with guest star and i never really been around. Any of those got is in leary had just won the award for master of my domain which i think alongside vitamin d benjamin lucie is the best half hour of television comedy ever written a bomb. There's some norman lear stuff that i would probably put come in that pantheon but but anyway just line so i find myself on the show cont- they fired another star in the middle of that week. I hadn't seen larry the entire time and we're about to shoot and mine was a big theme at the top of the show that sets the a. n. B. storylines in into play too big seen on a on a bus with george jerry so we've we've been rehearsing on the set. We're going to pre-tape that on an actual bus so there is shows up for the rehearsals we we go through it and as they're pulling the boss on the sound stage he goes earl is comically this. This seems not working not that coming so we go down to the other during the stage and he says let's let's run it. I'll be jordan jerry u._b. L. let's let's let's run it so we do it two or three times and he had this annoying habit habit of shaking his head no ever so slightly as we're doing it because i tell you i tell you what let's switch out the audi al u._b. George and jerry gary. Let's switch so we do it a couple of times switching roles. It was all right. Let's switch back so we slipped back back started doing this thing. He starts shaking his damned head and you know i don't lose my cool hardly ever do i even get nervous but man by ask was clinton in that. I'm gonna get tired. I said all right but let's and as he shaking his head ahead no and when i see all right what's what's the intention at the top of the scene. I mean the beat when i think of in terms of of the beats intentions intentions as an actor. <hes> you know that you enter a scene you you have a purpose for entering seeing that in that whole purpose that arc leeches through the seeing you have beats that that changed through the course of things leading toward the purpose so that's the way i think of stuff and i said so. You'll oh my intention when i entered the scene i i don't know him from from this week and he's looking at me with this incredulous look on his face me like i said oh. I didn't say this but i thought it. She doesn't think black a playwright. He doesn't think what beatson intentions each strictly comic rhythms bets. Ah the rhythm and pace of the saying fuck do it again. Let's do it again. I go back to the top and basically impersonated canadian him doing the part. That's it that's it. That's it that's it. That's the thing so that you know that was a learning process because that's the way he approaches stuff <hes> and then of course when we got he put himself in the scene as the man in the cape running on the bus and we get on the bus. I was too tall for the lights. I had to squat so that my face would appear on camera. I had he was the most unnatural thing in the world on on on camera on the frame it will but i had to do was incredibly comfortable and then we start filming the damn seen i can see his ball all hit the corner of my eye checking when he says that you know the larry sanders show exaggerated. I buy per cell nice not exaggerating there <music> but that but that's a that's a great point you bring up because you kind of he just has a different approach of how to do things. I mean look at your. I mean when i said had you were a diverse actor. I wasn't kidding all your work. Your filmography filmography is amazing so you must have as an actor those little. Those are the little things you have to learn along along the way that that obviously make you the actor you are today right. It's those little moments right. Is that a good way of looking at it yes but but it looks like not every situation. Are you perfect for our baseball game on right now. Not every great player fits on every t- recruit them and and in that situation it was it was uncomfortable for me. It turns out. It's aren't you know i'm i'm fine in it. I'm in the same cell thing <hes> and then other times. There's situations where it's just like. You know it's a perfect perfect fit. You just immediately click in with everybody that you're working with. Deadwood was that was just a really rare her <hes> situation that we were all firing on all cylinders and and we knew that we have something unique and it created hit a bond that that still exists a jerry stone pot that still exists between all of us yeah. It's an absolute work of art. I'm going to touch on that in a moment. I'm so yeah you we talked about these experiences. You you end up getting a bachelor's degree murray state you get your m._f._a. At depaul to great schools so so we get early on earl that you're the acting bug is bidu. You're you're very talented. You're you're certainly met to what you're doing but where who is your biggest influence fluence kinda coming along we mentioned some movies. We mentioned some moments but whether it's the paul murray state. Is there a mentor or somebody kind of growing up or developing your your your skill. Is there somebody that you really credit more than anybody else or is it just the the <hes> all these things taking into account as one like i think yes there's absolutely been great teachers along the way i think getting a little metaphysical here but i think the universe sent you. The teachers features that you need in these places in your life just has to be open and aware you know and and i can look back. I mean the first major influence. I was a high school teacher. Our speech in debate coach larry england mccallum county high school. He demanded the best of you. He demanded and did you work <hes> and he always said look winning is a byproduct of being at your best and he said here's here's the deal. We're all from a farming community in western kentucky. There's nothing wrong with being a farmer with being a carpenter would be with as long as you choose that as long as that's what you wanna do with your life but don't let think just because of the background you're from anything's possible and my group of friends that we're in that group with me are highly successful. Ones the senior v._p. Of united healthcare at boston one is the assistant general manager of jack daniels. Thanks bert one is he's now on his own but he was with oracle years out of dallas <hes> and we joke about something the water amongst us that we we kind of set off of each other and challenged each other and we all got out and did something else with our lives <hes> so that and then in college of martin allen oscar was the head of a theater department when i took an acting class on a whim i had no idea what i was going to do when i started college of the first my family to ever go to college and mark but then eight professional actor at one point in his life and he's the one who kind of pulled me aside and when you have something special you have so there was him i don the second city chicago there was going it can in graduate school and then in the professional world. There's really took so people who while

So I'm sure it works for you up on steaks killed you do well with that. With the older crowd. Hey, thanks for listening. Thanks for the call. Thanks for the text. Thank you. Maybe that would be a good question when you're getting to know people like on your Twitter bio or Facebook on social media, you know, you have that little spot where you'll put something clever about yourself. Maybe you should just always make sure you list. Your karaoke song. Steve do you have a karaoke zone? Do not know you karaoke to not. Yeah. And you're welcome. Oh, my gift to all of you. Not only do I not karaoke. And I never have. And I never will. I don't wanna hear you carry. I don't wanna hear anybody carry. Oh, we have parties here where they carry. Okay. No. We're always busy with the. And it's funny because I guess that's really big in Asia. It's really big in parts of the world more. So than other cultures like aboard and others the United States. It's huge really big after three AM. I'm telling you, I do although I will say this. We were on one of our cruises. We are on a Kelly crews, and they're in the lounge downstairs, they had karaoke going and the place was packed and some of the people there was one of the gals who I think actually worked on the boat. She might be she looked. She's maybe twenty eight years old. And she saying some popular songs did you knew? And she she was so good. It was enjoyable. I mean it was really enjoyable. You wanted her to sing more? But that's the exception. I'm at how many people will be singing not well and enjoying it. And people will be sitting there not necessarily paying a lot of attention. But using that as the background music and everybody seems to be having a good time. I couldn't be the person on the stage. So at the bar, right? And so it goes back to doing that. You're describing the commercial where people would describe you would describe yourself now. I mean, the people who can stand there and sing badly and feel good about it. I'm jealous a little bit absolute, right? I mean that is a measure of confidence or or Jack Daniels. Something I don't know what's going on there. But really, what makes you think the people want to hear you sing. And I know that's that's not even a rhetorical question. But it's not an important question either. Because I'm the only one that seems to care about the answer to that. So I get it. I'm an outlier. Well, what I don't understand it. I do have an answer for you. What I did it on. New Year's Eve. Yeah. And I didn't care that people could hear me singing. I was singing for whoever would listen. And I was thinking you Queen song that is way out of my register. But I didn't care because they saying in that moment just made me happy. You feel good. What time did this moment? Come. I don't know. I think I do New Year's Eve L of what's your what's your what's the Queen Sonja. This show must go on. I'm not going to ask you to sing it here. What with us wanting to keep listeners, and all, but I imagine you're pretty good singer. And it's beside the point it was feeling good for you served a purpose. So hurry, hurry free live. I'm just not in the I'm not on that bus. A sandy you're on WGN radio. Sandy, what can you do for us? Oh, I can do so many things you the. First of which is I had old Chelsea wishing record in the sixty two now p one of the song never bite a married woman. And the guy what I'm beaten by a boa constrictor. Let's see what they were some others about buying the woman champagne at the end of the night when I would bring that record out. Everybody knew it's time to go home, man. Oh boy. Fun. Been trying to find you find that. And then report back to me. Okay. Okay. Just don't bite me. Let's say Jake vice from sandy and ear on WGN. How are you? How you doing great subject to songs that gets the boost slowing and house rolling in that. Sweet Caroline, and oh my God. I forgot the other one. But anyway, you goes to that song. Everybody will jump in and the party has just begun. And we sang it before we went to Afghanistan, and it just gets everybody going every single time you said to my producer L if she just whispered in my ear the song. You can't remember I if I'm not mistaken was American pie. Bye. Bye miss American pie. And then the other one care. Caroline. You know, what we had it? Come navy commander with us? Any goes?
