Abrams is contentious loss. In the two thousand eighteen race for governor the effort to stop voter suppression in the state and mobilize black voters ramped up as a result. Black georgians showed up to the polls in droves this past election cycle and turned the state blew one of the activists responsible for this term is latasha brown a political strategist. Who's been working at the intersection of social justice and political empowerment for decades. Latasha is the co founder of the black voters matter fund and bv 'em capacity building institute a movement to expand voter access and build power for black americans particularly in the south. She joins us today to discuss the impact of expanding the right to vote and building a more diverse and inclusive future for the south latasha. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you for having me molly. I'm happy to be here. Between mobilizing i. For the presidential election and then for a hugely consequential senate runoff election all in the middle of a global pandemic. I feel like is it safe to say that you had a very busy twenty twenty. How are you have. You had a chance to relax a little bit. what are you saying. It's twenty twenty. It's just been a continuum. It seems like it's been a continual. It is different so i will say i do think that we got a little breathing room and it's not as intense. I think we're starting to fine or at least i am starting to find at least somewhat of a rhythm of how to operate in these circumstances how to give it but we're still in the midst of a global pandemic. We are certainly a different kind of i think political landscape but the fight isn't over matter of fact in some ways it has intensified. You know that whenever there has been progress in this country politically. There's always been backlash and so what we're seeing right now. All across the south and particularly in places like georgia. We're seeing the state. Legislators take up these bills to actually prevent black voters disenfranchised black voters and make it difficult for voters to participate in the process. Given what we were able to accomplish. And so when i think about twenty twenty i will say yes. Twenty twenty in some ways is over but there is a continuum of work that we're doing related to that take a break. I don't know if i've been able to take a fall. Rake i will say i dig into take a breather rights i was able to take a breather and was able to take a week off and really be able to do some kind of i'm not gonna say calming down because i had to sneak in work time to but nevertheless we are in a different phase of the work and i'm really happy and proud of the work that we were able to do in twenty twenty and i tell people i don't know if we're going to remember what happened in twenty fourteen or twenty eighteen twenty. Nineteen what i know for sure. War is that all of the history books will make reference to twenty twenty so was a very significant year. But i also think that twenty twenty one is showing itself that it will also be significant year as well particularly as we're talking about what governance means. Could you tell us a little bit about how you and your organization played a role in twenty twenty. How did you play a part in the history. Books will hopefully report back so part of our organization. When i'm really proud of is while we saw a lot of the work manifest in twenty twenty. This has been a work in progress. I've worked in the region in the south around power building for the last twenty seven years of my life. I long cliff all right. Who's the other co founder of black voters matter and so there's is so interested over two and a half decades. There are different strategies that we've used and worked to try to perfect or really to help support our organizing work and so two thousand sixteen. We both felt it was the opportunity to come together and really create an organization that we could bring some of those best practices together round power building and that ultimately if we were going to break up this kind of structural racism this backwards. What we felt was the precursor for fascism in this country. That fundamentally you could not do that without literally recognizing the role that many of the legislators and the power base in the south play in protecting facilitating trump's power and some of the destruction that we see and some of the structural racism that we see in legislation so we created an organization two thousand and sixteen with the idea that we would build power and the way that we would do that is a couple of ways one that we would certainly address the issue that the south is not. I say this all the time in the south is not read is just been under invested. You know. I think we have shown we have the receipts to show that when you are able to make an investment over time when you able to build out the ecosystem and help tap into the capacity that exists. We can make a difference and so one of our first races before even georgia. That people know us is that we were one of the groups that worked in the two thousand seventeen specially us senate race which was in many ways. People thought it was just an impossible. Long and in some ways it was because in the state of alabama. That's a deeply deeply deeply conservative reactionary right state and so to be able to tap into the opportunity that existed in that year. We want it. We were able to. Our strategy and our strategy was how to connect role communities and rule organizations with urban work.

Ads like michael jordan. Hare like michael b jordan but unfortunately a strong black woman stereotype is rained in american culture. It has a long history. About as old as morgan freeman and batty white combined now you may be wondering what is a strong black woman is the idea that black women are emotionally resilient naturally selfless to browns ask for help and can succeed with no resources so basically every care to play by viola davis.

She helped democrats win georgia and before you knew it. Using active vaccine distribution the new york. Subway and kim and guy is marriage. The stereotype even reaches the doctor's office. Black women are less likely to be properly diagnosed. They have a much higher maternal mortality rate.

The thing is is he can't escape it like we keep things like know we liked. I started talking about is like this is like an interesting topic for us but it turns out little. Did we know when we first started covering this story on the podcast which i was last october last november that actually it would blow up into this huge issue. Semi conductor manufacturing became like essentially. Nash topic of national news. Far outside the sort of like the niche audience right. Semiconductors secretly rule. All our lives. And i'm i'm joking. Obviously but nowadays everything is so high tech that there are a lot of appliances that you wouldn't necessarily think of that have chips in them So smartphones computers things like that obviously but also lots of cars And i saw one headline float by. I haven't had a chance to read it yet but something about aluminum producer's warning of downturn So chips are everywhere. And i think were really starting to realize how important they are and also how important chipmakers are of course as we've been discussing there's a limited number of Right so anyone who sort of listened to our series. We started talking about the decline of intel. We talked about why. Us manufacturing in general is sort of Gone away and we talked of course about the dominant role of taiwan semi.

Us national security question. We know the biden administration is looking at it and you know looking at different ways to reduce us dependent so we really can't get away from the story and obviously we're going to be talking about it again today and i bet it won't even be the last time we talk about it.

Some of the best Clear english descriptions of the challenges of chip manufacturing and it was the first one everyone should go back. And listen to that one. Then talking about the decline of intel. But we're going to zoom out a little bit and look at the acute that the world is facing right now. Why are so many companies struggling with their ability to source chips and then the longer term issue of this is scarce capacity is scarce and even if we get through this current phase there is going to be still this sort of perhaps a dangerous over reliance on a few manufacturers that our capacity limited so a very excited. We're going to be speaking again. Second time on the show. Stacey raskin his managing director senior analyst. Use semiconductors at bruce dean research Stacey thank you so much for coming back on lot at stake. Tastic be back. Thank you for having again. What's it like you know. You're like a star now. Because one point semiconductors were just like this thing that maybe investors mostly cared about but it really does feel like an you know. Correct me if i'm wrong but it really does feel like in the last few months. Everybody is now obsessed with this story. I think i may have mentioned this last time. I was on but i. There's one reason. I love this space. It's literally ground zero for everything that's been going on. And it's it's you know it's not just the last few months the trade and that briar s and then the the the burgeoning geopolitics and now obviously the shortages. And everything else like. It's and you remember. I mean like the global electronic like enterprise. I mean it's like a four or five trillion dollar industry worldwide. If you add up all the pc's and and and and all of the consumer electronics and then all the services and software and everything that goes with it trillions and trillions of dollars in it all rests on semiconductors semi's or the fundament of all of that like we don't have any of that without semiconductors and so i think it's a phenomenal place to to spend time and it's job security for me so that's yeah that's that's the most important

In the past stacy's cries for help had been met with indifference or further pain she had no reason to believe this time would be any different. In Stacy's own words. I could hardly speak let alone tell a high school stranger a man what had been through. But when Solti reminded stacey of her sisters position, she opened up not about the abuse but about the crime. She took full responsibility for Tom's death and beg the detectives to let her sister go. By midnight on July Fifth Stacey was formally arrested and sent to the Saint Louis County jail. Despite her attempts to absolve her sister Christy was also put in juvenile detention. Stacey lay on the metal bed completely exhausted. She'd been up for nearly twenty four hours and needed to sleep. But when she closed her eyes, all she saw was her father a rick to smile plastered on his face. A part of Stacey couldn't believe Tom was really dead. It seemed like he was all around her just waiting to pounce as soon as she let her guard down. She, worried that if she fell asleep, she would wake to find him standing inside her cell or worse lying beside her in bed. Stacey thought she would be free from all the sphere once she fired the gun. Show killed Tom because it seemed like the only way to escape him. But even now he haunted her from beyond his grave. During the night stacey was kept awake by nightmares and flashbacks during the day her thoughts never strayed far from Cristea. Although. She missed her sister terribly stacy's lawyers assured her. It was a good thing that the state put Christie juvenile detention. In meant, she was being treated as a minor and likely face a much lesser charge if she was prosecuted at all. But the lawyers were wrong in late August. The state decided to charge sixteen year old Christie as an adult. After almost two months Kristie was transferred to the Saint Louis County jail and the sisters were reunited. It was anything but a joyous occasion. All it meant was that Christie was facing possible prison time. Shortly after their mother Debra came to visit her daughters for the first time. Instead of comforting them. Stern she wanted to know exactly what happened on July fourth. When Stacy didn't offer swift answers deborah lashed out. She blamed Stacey for everything especially sixteen year old Christie's incarceration. Stacey solve read. Deborah. Was the only person who could have saved her and Christy She could have asked more questions paid more attention, even flown stacy and Christina Guam and freed them from Tom Forever. But. She didn't she chose not to. Instead, she lunged across the table ready to claw her mother. Another inmate had to hold her back. Deborah left the visiting area after that she stacy wouldn't speak for nearly two years. During that time Stacey and Christie had to navigate legal proceedings with almost no familial support. Police still unaware of the extent of Tom's abuse. Assume the sisters conspire to kill their father to inherit his estate. Because his mother had recently died Tom Assets were valued at around five hundred thousand dollars. Although sixteen year old Christie didn't want a penny from her father. She was so nervous during interrogation that she simply told police what they wanted to hear. Ultimately Christie was cowed into accepting a plea bargain. She pled guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in return for five year sentence. In January of Nineteen ninety-one about seven months after Tom's murder seventeen year old Christie was transferred to Rennes Correctional Institution, in Cedar City Missouri. St To was offered a plea bargain. If she admitted to committing the murder for monetary gain, she would serve just fifteen years. But Stacy refused murdering her father was the worst thing she'd ever done from that moment forward she wanted to be better. She would rather spend the rest of her life in bars than agree to a false story. Still a mental block kept her from being completely honest about the abuse she had endured. According to Dr Christine Grogan an author and professor who wrote about Stacy's case reluctance to break the silence regarding father daughter incest is quite common. Indeed, Dr Grogan writes that in at least one other case of daughter killing an abusive father the daughter pleaded guilty to avoid recounting the past in front of a judge and jury. The decision to choose silence over possible freedom was likely influenced by numerous factors. But according to an article published in the National Women's Studies, Association, Journal the pain and shame inflicted by sexual abuse have silencing fax. Although Stacey was able to say her father sexually abused her shame guilt and fear her from giving specific details to her lawyers this intern harm defense. It was over two years before Stacey actually went to trial in the meantime she searched for small moments of happiness at the Saint Louis. County. Jail. She started seeing a court appointed counselor who gave her a workbook called the courage to heal. The workbook change stacy's life. showed her that what Tom did to her wasn't her fault. It helped her view herself as a survivor, not just a victim. Because of what the Book Taught, her Stacey was able to begin the long and arduous process of forgiving herself. She also rediscovered her love for her mother, a bomb that Tom had been chipping away at since Stacey was a toddler. Stacey wrote her mother a letter and reconnected with Deborah as the date of her trial approached. Two weeks before twenty year old stacie appeared in court in October of Nineteen ninety-two she got wonderful news. Eighteen year old crusty had been released from prison after serving just half of her five year sentence. Stacey couldn't have been happier. Although Stacey was haunted by her actions on July Fourth Christie's release meant that all the suffering of the last two years had an entirely been in vain. With the possibility of a life sentence still hanging over her head Stacey accepted that she may have given up her own life so that Christie could live hers. Before she entered the courtroom on October Twenty Seventh Nineteen ninety-two Stacey new things looked bad. She needed.

"Out before. But now she had. She gave voice to the awful truth and still nothing changed. It didn't matter what she said nobody was going to help her she was all alone. In the fall of one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five, stacey started eighth grade although she previously been put in the gifted and talented program. She didn't care much about school anymore instead she started acting out by shoplifting from local stores. According to stay see she stole because she wanted attention from her mother who was always distracted with work in dating and her father who in Stacy's words only loved her half the time. To get to the root of Stacy's behavior. Deborah, had her see a psychologist but Tom Droves Stacey to her appointments and sitting in the car before therapy sessions he intimidated her reminding her not to tell anyone what he'd done. Although Stacey never outright said Tom raped her the psychologist told Deborah that her daughter was clearly being sexually abused by someone. Deborah S Stacey if Tom was abusing her and stacy her fear of her father outweighing her faith and her mother once again denied it. Endeavors is the psychologist wasn't helpful and she couldn't afford the continuing expense she stopped paying for her daughter to go to therapy. Deborah was under tremendous financial pressure. She wasn't able to keep up with the payments for their house so she moved to a small apartment. It was cramped especially with her daughter's there. Deborah. Wanted her own space and soon enough Christine Stacy were once again living with Tom. The arrangement was disastrous and not just for Stacey though her little sister eleven year old Christie wasn't subject to Tom Sexual abuse he did physically abuse her beating her at the drop of a hat. After Christie complained to her mother, Deborah agreed to let Christie come live with her knowingly leaving Stacey alone with a violent man. By, Nineteen eighty-six Stacy had stopped trying to avoid her father. There was no use. Everyone from her babysitter to her psychologist to her own mother had failed to protect her. She felt completely hopeless. With nobody else in the House Tom. raped. Fourteen year old stacie nearly every day. It was an unbearable existence. That year Stacey attempted suicide by taking a handful of allergy pills she found in her grandmother's cabinet. In response Tom Possibly. Afraid his secret would come out if stacy continue to hurt herself sent her to live with Debra. Unfortunately Stacy's relief was short-lived. Deborah was always either working or out on dates. So she became a de facto parent to twelve year old Christie. Eventually, Deborah settled on a man named John who consumed all of her time and attention. Stacey and Christie felt unwanted at their mother's house. Meanwhile, their father seemed to miss them and swore he had changed. Deborah and John Got Married in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seven the next year they moved from Missouri to Arkansas. According to Stacey Debra made it clear not through her words, but through her actions that she was better off without her daughter's around she and John Spent all their time working or locked in their bedroom. Our mother couldn't be bothered to spend any time with them, and Stacey, and Christie were uncomfortable around John Anyway. The marriage happened so fast that the two girls felt like they hardly knew their new stepfather at all. Stacey and Christie had a choice to make. They could move to Arkansas with their mother who made them feel like burdens or they could move back in with Tom who had it seemed undergone a change of heart. He was living with his mother again and he begged his daughters for a fresh start. He claimed he wanted them to be a family. Sixteen year old Stacey and fourteen year old Christie ultimately decided to move back in with her father and grandmother. Although Stacy's choice to go back to Tom seems difficult to understand worked by psychiatrist. Dr Susan Vince had found that children's sexually abused by their fathers experience a peculiar bonding with their father. This is referred to as traumatic bonding and according to psychologists MD young and J lowry may explain strong emotional ties to the incest perpetrator and a history of behavior that mean increase the risk of further victimization. Stacy's relationship with Tom was confusing especially for her she hated him and left him at the same time. He discussed her when he was Tom if there were still times albeit infrequently that he was the dad she desperately wanted. Their traumatic bond may have created in Stacey cognitive distortions especially surrounding the issue of blame although she was clearly the victim prolonged abuse and psychological manipulation letter to feel extreme guilt and shame. Stacey may have accepted her father's promise of a fresh start because he had successfully convinced her that the abuse was her fault. She also may have believed him because at her core, she wanted their relationship to be better. But no matter how badly she wanted things to change. They didn't. According. To her the abuse picked up again almost immediately. Even with grandma land around Tom was drunk and violent day in and day out as much. Stacy wanted to protect her sister. It was impossible to keep Christie sheltered from Tom's physical abuse. And Tom was clearly incapable of taking care of himself or his daughters and Grandma Leonard. Was Too old and sick to keep him in line. Christie. Barely fifteen years old even developed a secret drinking problem of her own. It was left up to stacy to care for her traumatized sister and her ailing grandmother all the while during her father's abuse. It was already unbearable, but things only got worse. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, Denver and John Relocated to an air force base in. Guam and grandma Leonard passed away. With her mother out of the country and their grandmother gone seventeen year old Stacey and fifteen year old Christie were entirely at Tom's mercy. To. Make matters worse stacey was still suffering with the abdominal pain that doctor diagnosed as lactose intolerant. So many years before. In Nineteen Ninety Stacey finally received her real diagnosis, her reproductive organs were wracked with infection. She had pelvic inflammatory disease or P. ID almost certainly caused by nearly a decade of sexual abuse. But the pain wasn't the worst of it stacy learn she would never be able to have children of her own. In that moment, she decided that the father she had once loved was dead to her. She knew she had to figure out how to get away from him..
"stacey" Discussed on Recode Decode
"We've always been aware of the fragility of democracy and the fragility of our voices, which is why it is so important that we fight even harder in a moment where it's coming into sharp relief because the. The demographic changes that we're facing and the that's just racial demography. It's age demography. It's shifting of populations from the to the south. All of those pieces are changing how our politics are lived, and so yes, we have a democracy, but that democracy is constantly in need of refreshing protection, and we have forgotten that part of our responsibility, so you're. The lawsuit got moved forward correct. Where is it now? So, not surprisingly, the state tried to kick us out of court, and not surprisingly we kicked. There S and. That's what we do their name. Fair fight, we fight. That's what I do, and so we have an incredible legal team and incredible staff, and not only did the state have their motion to dismiss denied. It was denied in a beautiful eighty-five page order. That used our own language back to us from the court. And this is really important. In terms of voting rights, a the standing issues in the suit, a really important Stacey Abrams a candidate, our campaign is not a plaintiff in this suit. Grassroots civic organizations that represent domestic workers that represent Martin Luther King's birth church churches around the state civic organizations. The court agreed with us because those organizations work to engage voters and educate voters. They have standing because a future harm. This could do to them, and so that's important for organizations in Florida and Tennessee and Texas. That are facing unbelievable on on the right to vote did that. This federal judge has has granted. Standing agreed with us in terms of standing, so there's a whole series of things. Is Now the governor, not surprisingly as governor. He has not talked about this issue. He has not talked about twenty nine thousand provisional ballots were given up twenty, nine, thousand mainly African Americans in state where he is governor. Don't know their vote was counted. They map like a racial map of the state of Georgia. You plot those two thousand nine thousand. It's a map of African American neighborhoods. This governor has never looked people in the eye to explain that and he put a bunch of crap legislation to legislature I fixed it here. We go, and the court said Nope, buddy you didn't. That didn't work. Go what is the goal for you all to do? Because a lot of people did stolen election, and it keeps doing that is. Look I I. I. Don't call it a stolen election. Others do others I appreciate it. But but. That's not the language use. Because the minute it becomes about me or single election. We miss the point. This is about whether voters voices can be heard about whether citizens are allowed to be voters and the moment it becomes about a single politician. Good if you dislike politician, it's a non-issue. This is about our democracy and that's that's constantly be the return. We've got to get back to the fact that politicians are elected to be representatives of the People's needs, and if they cannot engage in their system, they cannot have their voices, and their values heard than we do not have a democracy, and so no it is, it is not about the election. The election was was a marker on what I would argue has been twenty your story of. Irregularities and intention Alevis in diminishing the right to the United States because it didn't start with Georgia you've got Wisconsin. You've got Texas. You've got North Carolina. You've got Michigan. You've got Pennsylvania you got. New York. You've got states that have systematically denied access to the right to vote, and until we correct those wrongs, we do not have a thriving democracy in our country. You're touching on something though that has begun to concern me pretty deeply. You said a couple of minutes ago. This isn't a partisan issue, but it is the Republican Party has begun to see that. Its interests coincide with less democracy. Somebody made the point to be recently the you can't possibly imagine bringing the voter age down from twenty one to eighteen in today's America. Because young people are Democratic Republicans would never permit that when you think about the Electoral College, it has a similar flavor to it when you think about Puerto, RICO NBC and potential statehood there and a similar dimension to it. It seems to be pretty dangerous place to be in this country that democracy is becoming a partisan issue that it's seen as something that if you're going to expand the franchise good for Democrats, and if you're gonNA contract, good for Republicans, so moves nuclear. Democracy. The corrosion of our democracies partisan, the purveyors of most of the suppression absolutely are partisan. It has been a longstanding intend to the Republican party to silence the voices of those who are not likely to be a member of their party, and that means young people color and. Those are the two main targets primarily people color because racist, the strongest predictor of political leanings. Yes voter suppression legislation, further suppression behavior is almost intentionally targeted to communities of color and low income communities, but the corrosion of democracy has a broader sweep because the problem is once you start to break the machinery. It breaks for everyone using it, and that's why I think it has to be that. We also remind Republicans this is a danger to them as well. The area where they had to run that election, because the same incompetence and they'll fee. Since that was used to deny the right to vote to millions of Georgians to have their full hearing, it also had the Ansari effective affecting that election three separate times, because those same tools can be used against you if they become part of how the machinery operates. We're listening to my two thousand nineteen interview. Was Stacey Abrams and Lauren grow recorded live at the code conference. We're GONNA. Take another break now. We'll be back soon. So supplement Georgia now because right now has gotten in the news and you. You came out and think both had talked to me about this. This is pre the reproductive rights issues You have come out pretty strongly that the tech companies often boycott states usually in the first now media companies right there to you. You've talked about the idea of not boycotting. These comes something. Tend to do right away or typically more than other companies. Can you make the argument to tech people why they shouldn't if they're if they're for reproductive rights why they shouldn't boycott. What's your thing I was surprised? Leaning forward okay. I believe in boycotts. I grew up in the city I live in Georgia I only to vote. Go outside and eat because of boycott, so yes I know they can work, but we have to remember that. Boycotts have to be directly connected to the goal, and the challenge with reproductive rights is that Roe v Wade does not ban overturning Roe v Wade Ban abortion overturning Roe v Wade returns authority to determine access to abortion to the states, and so even if Roe V. Wade is overturned if you have not changed the composition of the legislature. Then you cannot change the outcome because you can get one law reverse, but that does not stop a new law from taking effect the only way to fundamentally change access to abortion and to make it. The law of the land is to change the composition of the legislature and the governor in the state of Georgia. Boycotting doesn't do that because what you do is you suck out resources, and you actually remove potential voters who could make better? It is better to stay. Fix floating system because it was a one point, four percent difference even. Voter suppression was at its height and flipped fifteen legislative seats. During my election. We can do even more, and if we change that, then you actually change the long term outcome, not only of reproductive types, but actually maternal mortality access to healthcare. We have to stop responding to the moment, and actually think about the mission and the mission for most of our states is to actually expand gets to participate..

"All right Joe so you had a southern candidate for the presidency but this is a whole different Vail. Hey as we may say in the south. I thought her Her point was interesting that she made about being a political progressive in the south she had to learn to speak progressive. But also moderate also conservative to get anywhere in Georgia politics which as a participant in Georgia politics. Anyone on both sides have to kind of target those audiences but what did you make of what she had to say? We have great people on here every week but Stacey Abrams was if not the most impressive person we've had one of the most I think she captures the shoes with a very sophisticated understanding but with a motivating narrative. And I think that she is going to get a very very long. Look if Joe Biden's nominated I've lessened side into what Bernie Sanders will be looking for. And I think the real field for Biden will be fairly small. I think it will be a woman. I think it will be a woman of color and one of the things about Stacey. Abrams is America. Hasn't seen that much of her. But I think you'd be listening to this. You know that the more they see the more they're gonNA like her. And speaking of Bernie and Biden. A lot has happened since we last spoke. The field is now narrowed down to two going into Michigan. Any predictions there from South Carolina to Super Tuesday. More happened in short time that I've ever seen in a presidential. I wanted to ask you that because it seemed very quick to me but my institutional knowledge is shorter. No I mean we. We're talking about a candidate who it at best come in third place in previous contests winning across the board by more than he was supposed to win and candidates getting out knowing people to judge and Clova chart got out the day before. Super Tuesday didn't even go to the polls to get more data so the media tends to make everything seem extraordinary like everything is breaking news but this was extraordinary. I think this week's primaries are very important particularly Michigan. Sanders signalled his intentions by canceling a Friday rally in Mississippi conceding. The South to Joe Biden Michigan State. He won last time by a very narrow margin over Hillary Clinton. He has to win Michigan. He has to make the case that outside the south his wing of the party is strong enough to take him to Milwaukee and the nomination if he loses in Michigan. It's very hard for people to believe that narrative and one of the things I think we can take away from the earthquake of South Carolina to Super Tuesday is Democrats are looking for getting on with it they want someone that will beat trump. I believe that if Sanders Loses Michigan Democrats will write them off He'll get his twenty-five thirty percent of hardcore supporters. But I think Democrats are itching for this to turn trump and away from inter-party squabbling. So I think Wednesday morning. We're going to have a much better sense of where this races and while all of this is going on we are dealing with a national and potentially global crisis dealing with corona virus putting aside the fact that both Barney and Biden are well into their seventies and hitting a campaign trail shaking hands and kissing babies and visiting multiple populations a day that have potentially been affected by this at the same time. The White House is trying to Tamp down fears say things like we've got it handled. We've kept it limited. The mortality rates are extremely low. Maybe even lower than what's being reported but there's so much left that's unknown and we're starting to get inklings of that and reports of that based on the testing and the test kits available. But what do you make of how this is getting handled? Well I think there's there's a couple levels to this one is. We talked a little bit last week. About how the president has failed leadership test. His job is to make sure that those with the information deliver reliable accurate information to the public so that they can make reasonable judgments. What you don't want is sort of mixed messages and and chaotic messages. But it's clear. The president has put his reelection and his political fortunes ahead of the public health. He has done everything he could to downplay this on Thursday of last week. He told Fox News that he'd beaten it and it was over. We know it's not over. We know they have beaten it. And from a communications point of view it's disastrous to say you've solved the problem and the problem is apparent to anyone who turns on television or opens the newspaper and I think the most the the worst and most damaging thing of that is when the scientists who worked for the government go out and say in a straightforward way. We don't have this contained. We are worried about this. We don't have the test kits available to test people. And then the president and his economic advisor. And his pollster. Go and tell the press that yes we do have a contained so if you are an average American you think I would imagine a lot of people jump to the conclusion of well if if the President says is contained and the scientists say. It's not will boy. This must be really bad. And even the scientists are being are being held on a short leash and that's created not widespread pack but a lot of people doing a lot of things that they probably don't need to do at this point. Finally the most where you can actually see it on a day-to-day basis are the financial markets on the stock market. The president has made a huge deal. About how much everyone has gained on the stock market? That's been wiped out and it's been wiped out for two reasons one is the virus is having a direct impact on the economy and stock market is never looking at what's happening today or what happened yesterday. Always looking ahead and it's always looking to what they predict will happen and so the fundamentals are changing. Despite with Larry cudlow says every day they are changing. All you have to do is go to a mall. Go to win airport and see how easy to get through the TSA WINE. People have changed their habits their travel habits. They're going out to large events and that will have an impact on the economy but the second thing which is within the control of the administration is the markets can handle can price in the change in economic fundamentals. What really causes volatility is when there's uncertainty and they can't figure out where the floors and this is where The particularly the president but also some of his aides have spooked the markets. They see the president is saying everything's Okay and then scientists saying everything's not in there like we don't know and when they don't know their instinct is to sell rather than to buy and that has a psychological effect on people but it also have a direct impact on the president's reelection prospects we we when we talked to Doug Sosnik The couple of weeks ago and he when he was our guest he talked about the by the end of the second quarter people's minds were baked on whether the president was good for the economy or bad for them for the economy. And so we're coming up to July first. The end of the second quarter is not that far away and now we have incredible economic uncertainty. And it's fair to say that Donald trump is an unpopular president but his core supporters at about forty percent. We'll always stay with them. That theory will be tested if we go into a recession if the stock market tumbles even further if this vicious cycle turns on itself and starts really impacting businesses around the country. And without that it's very hard to see Trumping reelected so the bottom line is there is a reason. trump is using bad information and misdirection. Because it's in his interest. It's a very very risky strategy. It's George Bush mission accomplished. He told the country we had this done. And it's not done and it's an issue a lot of political back and forth. The public doesn't care about they don't pay attention to it doesn't move the one way or the other just moves sort of the twitter verse. You can't have a conversation any place in this country with anyone whether they're a stranger or a friend or a family that doesn't start with corona virus you just can't that moves voters you know it's the old adage of Chicago. Mayor Jane Byrne lost the Mayor Oh action because it snowed and she couldn't get the snow off the street fast enough and she went from being a head in the in the Democratic primary to losing. This is something that impacts everyone. Everyone's thinking about everyone's talking about real anxiety and the leadership that they should be getting from the White House. They're not it's not going away. I suspect we'll be talking about this next week and the week after that and the week after that. Yeah I would count myself included with those people who every conversation they have revolves around at least in the beginning corona virus and so much changes each day that by the next time we talk. I'm sure it will be an entirely different storyline but Thanks TO OUR LISTENERS. For joining us this week until then exciting. Thank you for listening to words matter please.

"stacey" Discussed on True Crime Brewery
"Stacey buying more booze that morning and stacey served Ashley Drinks. It was vodka and orange juice in a large cup but Ashley saw stuff swirling the drink. Stacey just told her oh I added some spices. Don't be a baby but it did taste bad. So Stacey showed Ashley a trick. She put a straw all the way to the back of her throat and told her to just suck it down on account of ten so she was basically swallowing the stuff so she wouldn't taste it much. And the next thing Ashley would remember was feeling kind of sick and going to bed. That was interesting. That Ashley's boyfriend stopped by that night. And what he did was. He called the house from his cell phone as he stood out front. Stacey answered and told him that Ashley was sleeping and just couldn't be disturbed so without telling Stacey that he was out front. He asked her if she would look and Ashley's room because he thought he had left his ATM card there. Stacey agreed put down the phone in a few minutes later. She returned to the phone and told the boyfriend that she had thoroughly searched Ashley's room but had not found his card but the thing is he knew she was lying because he was out front and Ashley's bedroom light had not come on at all so nobody had gone in and search that room. Gotcha but he didn't say anything. I mean this is his girlfriend's mother. He's not going to start an argument. He just went home yet so the next morning. September fourteenth two thousand seven brief found Ashley Glassy eyed and unresponsive. In her bed she started screaming. And then stacy came running out of her room. Ashley was obviously in distress and not breathing. Normally Stacey called nine one one stacy told the operator that her daughter had taken an unknown quantity of Ambien and a drunk a whole bottle of vodka. Well bree was so freaked out by this. She had to leave the room and when she came back in her mother was still on the phone with nine one one but there was a folded piece of paper. That hadn't been there before lying near Ashley's head on the bed so re picked it up and opened it and stacy told the operator that Ashley had left a note so as the ambulance was racing to the House. The dispatcher kept Stacey on the phone and at one point. She overheard Stacey expressing worry that the room was such a mess. So that was weird. Set priorities right right. So Ashley was rushed to the hospital where she received emergency treatment and she did recover. Doctors said that she was within hours of death and that her sister had saved her life. The note found on Ashley's bed appeared to be Ashley's Murder Confession where she admitted to killing her father and her stepfather Ashley had a life threatening level of alcohol. And opiates in her bloodstream. As well so Ashley Woke Up. Police detectives questioned her about the murders and about the no. She said that the last thing she remembered was her mother giving her alcoholic drinks and she denied killing anyone or writing the note or being suicidal. She was just totally confused about this and it was really suspicious because the note was written with a typewriter then outside of Ashley's Hospital Room Stacey embry were told initially would survive now. Bree would remember that. Her mother was desperate to get back into the room of Ashley. Yeah ed I need desperate like she wanted to get in there? She was worried. Yeah and not about her daughter. Good reason yeah. As she spoke with the police Ashley quickly realized that it was her own mother who is setting her up framing her for murder and then to kill her and she has a little shock. And that's probably an understatement. Big Understatement I mean. This was a lot to take in. No kidding you're recovering from this near death experience and you find out that your mom setting you up for killing two guys and tried to kill you yourself. Yeah and she remembered that her mom had told her that the police were closing in on her and her mom was worried being arrested so she just chosen to throw her daughter under the bus. So this made Ashley realize let her mother probably had killed her father and David Castor. There was no other explanation so as the police talked to stacy asking her about the note found in her daughter's bed and about the deaths of her husband's she became angry non-cooperative. The police had planned on arresting Stacey but they held off in order to gather more evidence but now that more lives were in danger from her. They decided they couldn't wait any longer. I mean there was a serious chance that Stacey would try and kill her daughter again if she wasn't locked up so the next day Friday September Fifteenth. Stacey was arrested. She was booked for the murder of David. Castor in the attempted murder of Ashley. So stacy did not confess to any crimes. She held that she was innocent. She hadn't written the note and she hadn't healed or attempted to kill anyone. Stacey was very willing to blame her daughter for the murders of her husband's even though remember Ashley was only eleven years old when her father died. So the evidence including the motive pointed directly to stacey after searching Stacey and Ashley's House and Computers Portions of Ashley Suicide Letter were on the family. Pc The hard-drive showed that it had been written in segments over. A period of time to rough drafts had been saved. Investigators noticed that the letter referred to antifreeze as anti-free leaving off the Z. At the end now it could have been a typo but stacey had been heard calling antifreeze anti-free before detective. Spinelli remembered stacey making that error verbally in an interview after David had died so they not been opened at two twenty seven. Pm on September twelfth. Two days. Before Ashley went to the hospital and it was proved at Ashley wasn't home at the time because she's attending classes at afternoon so stacey was home at the time. And she's the one who had picked up Ashley at score three Thirty Day right so stacey was at home alone and that document was opened on the family computer an hour before she went to pick up Ashley at school. Ashley's boyfriend was interviewed. And he told police that stacy had only spoken with him about this about. Ashley's boyfriend was interviewed and he told police that Ashley had only spoken with him about suicide once and that was about a month ago when they had both agreed that they would never do that. He didn't believe that Ashley was depressed or that. She would have attempted suicide and he definitely didn't think that she had murdered anyone. She was actually quite excited about starting college and she and her boyfriend were in a good place in their relationship at that time. Stacy pled not guilty and was held without bail her defense team Charles. Keller and Todd Smith Plan to point the finger at Ashley had convinced the jury that Ashley had been capable of killing her father when she was just eleven years old. In December of two thousand seven Stacey was indicted for the second degree murder of David. Castor the attempted murder of Ashley and I agree offering a false instrument for filing it turned out that stacy had convinced a friend of hers to notarize. The forged will after David was already deceased friend. Apparently it felt sorry for Stacey. 'cause she's now lost her husband's so she ended up doing it against her better judgment to help her friend out so she agreed to testify and decided not to bring any charges against her so stacey stayed in jail over Christmas and her mother visited her quite a bit now. She was convinced that stacy was innocent and her theory was that Ashley hit hated her father for favouring. Brie and that Ashley Hated David for taking away. Her mother's attention so according to her this girl had killed both of them after being in jail for nearly a year and a half. Stacey castor went to trial in January. Two thousand nine now the defense's version of events. In which Ashley as the guilty parties impossible at first but the evidence slowly convinced the jury is Stacey casters guilt. An expert for the state testified that the actual drinking of the antifreeze was probably not that bad does have a sweet taste since night unpalatable now. Because liquor is actually the antidote to counteract ethylene glycol poisoning David Castro's drinking slowed down the poisons effect so the mixing of the two substances the alcohol and the ethylene glycol just lengthened. His painful death. Yes so kind of like torturing him if you think about it yeah. One of the first responders to the scene of Ashley's poisoning was detective Valerie. Brogan and she testified to the chaotic seed. And how close to death. Actually Ashley actually appeared to be. The jury was not allowed to go to the house in person so a slide show was played showing photos of the Kester House and of Ashley's bedroom more than one person on the scene and at the hospital with Ashley. Afterwards testified that her behavior answers were really consistent with her telling the truth. Stacey on the other hand was seen as being difficult and very evasive. The emergency room physician. Who worked on Ashley? When she was brought in by ambulance testified that she was conscious though barely but definitely incoherent her blood. Alcohol level was zero point. One four percent and remember the legal limit for drunk driving is zero point zero eight so this was nearly twice that the physician testified that this was potentially fatal. And when the pill she had ingested were added into this equation she could have likely died if she hadn't been brought into the ER and when the computer expert testified he said that not only was the suicide note written in portions over time. When Stacy was home the note had been written in Stacy's user account also Microsoft Word Program used to write. The note wasn't even installed on Ashley Computer. Oh Yes oh. The evidence against stacy is just becoming overwhelming so she took the stand. I guess in a last ditch effort to convince the jury of her innocence but that didn't work on February fifth of two thousand nine. She was found guilty of second degree murder for David. Castor an attempted second degree murder for her daughter Ashley before she was sentenced the DAS adjudged to impose the maximum consecutive sentences because of the painful prolonged death of David castor and the cold and calculating way. She attempted to kill and set up her own daughter as Ashley was in her bedroom. Comatose from the drugs and alcohol that stacy had given her stacey was out partying in a tent in her yard with friends acting as if everything was fine so that showed her to be very cold so the. Da said that Stacey Castor really place no value on human life other than her own and that included the lives of our own children. Yeah so the judge told castor that he had never seen apparent attempt to murder her child in order to set that shot that for a crime that the parent had committed. It is a strange case. Isn't it it is. I'm trying to think of I've heard of any cases like that and I don't think I have so the judge sentenced. Stacey to twenty five years to life for David casters murder and another twenty five years for attempting to kill Ashley. Then she got another one to four years for the forging of David's will she's held in Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for women in Bedford Hills New York. Her earliest possible release date was June. Two thousand fifty five suffering psychiatrists James Knoll was interviewed for twenty twenty episode on Stacey Castor Beck in two thousand nine and. He said that she wasn't technically a serial killer but it was likely that she would have killed again. He described her as a black widow. Type of killer. Someone who kills lovers or husbands for financial gain and she had demonstrated psychopathic traits especially in our willingness to kill our own daughter and her daughter. Take the blame for her other crimes as well right. Shortly after Stacy's conviction David's family made plans to have his remains relocated. They just weren't happy with his gravesite being right next to stacy's on her with first husband they looked at it as a way of Stacey gloating and maintaining a trophy of what she had done to him. Yeah if that's the case but I could see where they're coming from absolutely and even nothing else you'd say I don't want my son or my father. Whatever to be buried next to her. Well sure so in two thousand eleven David Castor Son David Junior and his mother Janice filed a civil suit and they were awarded. What remained of David casters estate? Stacey Castor died in two thousand sixteen. She was found dead in her cell. Her cause of death was determined to be from a heart attack and there was no evidence of a suicide or homicide. So that's kind of funny. Not Funny Ha ha but funny strange that she ended up dying at a fairly young age of a heart attack. So the sources we used for this case in addition to the two thousand nine twenty twenty episode black widow there's a forensic files episode titled Freeze Framed.

"Welcome to true crime. Purry I'm Shell and I'm Dick. Stacey castor was a recent widow suspected of two murders when her eldest daughter Ashley was hospitalized following an appearance suicide attempt while some looked at stacy with sympathy others thought she was evil. A woman who was alone responsible for the tragedies in her own life the story of Stacey Castor life her relationships and her losses is a complex and very twisted narrative. After it all played out. She would be exposed as heartless and calculating. Join us at the quiet and today for her dark plans. Stacey Castor. After getting away with one murder Stacey became comfortable with eliminating anyone who got in the way of what she wanted her murderous plots knew no boundaries. Not even the lives of the children she claimed to love. So we're in New York for this crime correct New York state. Yep So and I have a New York Beer. I actually have a beer. Brewed by brewery in Stacy's hometown weeds port ace. So the beer is pumped hct fest. It's brewed by Lumpkin. Heimer craft brewing company in. We'd support. This is an October fest so you might be wondering why. I'm drinking in October fest in February. Well now they're always good because I was thinking it was there. Yeah so this one is okay. It's nice that it's not terribly spicy. Although October Fest Beers shouldn't be real spicy anyway and this one shows a lot of Pumpkin. So it's Rusty Amber Colour Nice Big Whitehead. Pumpkin aroma some sweet mall taste. Goes right along those lines. Pumpkin Little Caramel so light by beer very smooth very drinkable. So I'd I'd give it a pretty good score so from my limited experience. Pumpkin beers aren't always very pumpkin. Either more like a pumpkin spice but does this have a real pumpkin taste. Yes well it's a subtle pumpkin taste but it is there all right. Well let's give this one a try. Let's open it up. We can open it up and take it on down okay. Let's take this on down to the quiet end. What's going on at the quiet unto day to day is a celebration of almost daylight savings time. Okay I enjoy daylight savings time. What's your opinion on it? Oh I'm neutral care one way or the other okay. The thing with moving from standard time to daylight time as we lose an hour we spring ahead but at my age. It doesn't matter okay. So you think there's an age when that does matter and win with the cutoff beyond that are when you're thirty seven and a half then you don't care anymore wrote okay. Something to look forward to for some of the younger folks. Exactly Alright dickey. Why don't you start our story? I am enjoying this beer by the way I like it. Well I thought you were tonight. Spear yes. Let's talk about Stacey Castor. Who was born? Stacey Daniels and she was born in we'd sport which is a little town just twenty miles from Syracuse. Her Dad was a car salesman. Stacy had assistant brother named Darcy and Jamie off. Three of these kids went to school in the weeds. Port Public School System. His sister became a nurse. Her and her brother worked for large toy company. Now Stacy had plans to become a lawyer or maybe a paralegal but in his senior year in high school. She met and fell in love with twenty four year old guy and that kind of derailed all of her plans. It did so this guy. Is Mike Wallace? This was a good looking guy. Here's the life of every party. And he was the first guy who wasn't turned off by Stacy's height of six feet. Well in her mind yeah in her own. Mind our own mind. She felt like that was really not liked by the guys that she was that tall in. Uh this was a little bit of a strange situation anyway and not just because of the six seven eight year age difference. Mike had been married before he'd been married to Stacy's third cousin. Nancy I had to look up. What a third cousin meant and that is people who are related at the level of their great great grandparents. That's barely related. But anyway that's distant but she did know her. Yeah well I mean if you live in. The same area sure should be acquainted with absolutely now. That can time a little bit Nancy. Who was mixed first wife? She become pregnant with another guy's child in nineteen. Seventy nine is back when she and microbes seventeen so make an answer got married and they raised two children together. When was his stepdaughter renee? And they had a biological son James that Nancy and Mike's Marriage was just disaster. You know you could have kind of predicted that the coach you while they fought a lot and Mike was in and out of jail for his partying ways he had. Dui is and even had domestic violence charges so even though Mike had been abusive to her. Nancy always defended him and she would claim that he had a big heart but he was just raised in a family with some generational domestic violence so basically saying he was a product of his environment. well a lot of times. That's the case not always right right. Hopefully people can break away from that but I think it usually does take some self awareness and some therapy and it seems to me to be kind of an easy way out of things. Yeah you can say well. I'll blame it on my parents or my upbringing. Well it can be a cop out. Yeah for sure so after six years together. Nancy and Mike did get divorced. No big surprise there but it was just in time for Mike to fall in love with another high school senior and that was stacey he barks. O School. Seniors doesn't he. Yeah and it didn't matter if he was a high school senior anymore. He still liked them. Route so stacey and Mike Got Together he was working as a setup operator at mcquaid international. Pretty good job. This company manufactured Heating Cooling and building management equipment right in nearby Auburn so within minutes of meeting Mike. Stacey was already planning a life with him she wanted a wedding honeymoon and then a family with him and she thought they would spend the rest of their lives together but then stacy found out that she was pregnant just months after first. Having sex with Mike and Mike decided he wasn't interested in having another child so he broke up with stacy now of course that didn't stop her from having his child but she lived at home with their parents and she gave birth to her daughter. Ashley. According to friends and family stacy was a good mom in the beginning at least. She was madly in love with her baby. She was inseparable with Ashley and gave her all of her attention. And his Ashley grows up. We're going to see that Ashley. Her mother were really best friends to me. That's not the way to raise a child. Yeah but anyway well. Is there a way to be friends and still be the the parent line through definitely is yeah but if you stop being the parent and your only friend that's bad? I agree or if you're the best friend true true it's really not healthy for the Child. The child needs to go out and make their own friends with their pierce right. Got It but anyway. Stacy found out as many women do that. The bad boy party personality that had attracted her to her baby's father was really a negative when it came to settling down and raising a family together because Mike like to drink and go out with his friends but she was really into him and she didn't give up. She kept seeing Mike showering him with love and attention. And Eventually Mike Did Propose and gave Stacey and engagement ring and she was so happy here. If you look at the photos from Stacey Mike's Wedding Mike Looks Pretty happy pretty carefree. He had that thick dirty blond hair. Kinda longish big huge substantial mullet. Yeah that was one of those straight hair. Mullets that hangs down to like the shoulder. Blades serious mullet. Those were good And Stacey was thrilled about how the wedding when how everyone looked then. The wedding took place in her family home and there are lots of friends there to see her in her. A beautiful wedding dress. Yes so looks like everything's happily ever after to stacy at this point at this point and even with his ex wife. Nancy they gotta lock. Yeah they did. They even invited Nancy and her two kids over for Christmas. One year and Nancy was welcomed to drop off her kids with stacy and Mike for visits in their home. Mike had been in charge and quite abusive in his relationship with the Ansi but she noticed that he was very different with stacy. Stacy was the one in charge in her house. You know wearing the pants as they say and Mike really toed the line. Stacey was sharp young woman really pretty smart and she knew what she wanted to get done and she did it. Still Mike like to go out drinking and he even did some drugs but it seemed like he was really good to stacey when he was home. Andy worked so he provided okay. I don't know yeah. I think there's still some difficulties if he really likes to go out and drink do drugs matter how he is does wife. When he's home right. Sure Yeah but there's no doubt anyone's mind back. Then that stacy was really in love with Mike. Oh absolutely mean to her. He was like a teen idol and she had a crush on him even after they'd been married for years also. Everyone agreed that Mike adored stacey so even though things weren't perfect it seemed to be working for a while but then now three years after Ashley was born. They had a second daughter named her. Bree now Mike Call Bree his little princess and it was obvious that he preferred gre- over Ashley now. This is kind of strange because he fathered apparently fathered both children right betsy. Some people started to question. If you know maybe might doesn't think he's Ashley's father because we know that one of the two children that he had with Nancy when it had been conceived with another man so maybe he remembered that and showed some coldness towards Ashley. Yeah maybe it was even not even a conscious thing right but later on. Stacey would say that Mike's Preference for bree was very hurtful to Ashley that there was an obvious lack of emotion between Mike and his oldest daughter so obvious that she even pointed it out and family photos. Stacey said that she tried to compensate for the lack of fatherly. Love by spending as much time with Ashley as possible so their relationship really went beyond that of a mother and a daughter and they were more like best friends. But you know Ashley didn't remember it that way. She didn't remember feeling rejected by her. Dad are seeing him prefer her sister. She had happy memories of her dad from when she embry were little girls. So when we think about this when we go into talking about her crimes we might realize that. Stacy was kind of playing this up for her own reasons. If share so when stacy and my gut married she worked as an ambulance. Dispatcher and Mike was a mechanic they managed but they didn't have an excessive amount of money didn't do vacation sir other big indulgences. They lived in a two story house near the junior high and high schools in a nice working class neighborhood.

"I would say was one of the best campaigns ever run America because it was run by people who looked like Georgia but you can try this at home and what I don't want people to think is that you have to have a singular person at the top of the ticket in order to be successful you can win elections by talking to people by being authentic and honest about your positions. They're not gonNA agree with everything you say but they get excited to know that you're are willing to tell them the truth and what our campaign says. Our playbook says is invest in everyone. Go everywhere and reject the myths that say that if you talk to people of Color White people won't vote for you if you only talk to white people people of Color won't vote for you can have it both you can have both voting that you can talk to people in rural communities and suburban urban communities ended urban communities and you can build a coalition but the campaign has to do all of the work and that's the part that tends to lead to disconnect you. You and I both know there are a lot of great candidates who lose because they run crappy campaigns and those campaigns that are the most efficient are not the ones who select this group of voters voters to win most efficient campaign is the one that wins the that gets the most voters to turn out and my mission is to say that if you're in a red state or pre blue state that more more than likely what you're missing is that you're not talking to the people that you've already written off people that you say are unlikely voters are non voters.

You're in for a penny yeah all right okay between twenty ten and two thousand eighteen in Georgia. Lots of voters were purged from the voter rolls without going over how many voters were purged from the roles in that time period read in Georgia fifty four.

"I'd love to talk to you about beacons because they felt so promising, and then they ended up being so not promising and yet a lot of the technologies were talking about in this conversation or things that we thought we'd do with beacons. And now, we're basically going to do it with gateways and other devices. So can you kind of talk to me about I guess what happened with beacons? And then how that concept has adapted to maybe what we hope we need. Yeah. Sure. I think the. You take it back far enough. This goes back to what happens with many technologies, I guess and by the way, I think it's actually going quite well beacons, but you're back when the community adage with low energy in one of the things that got introduced with that was the ability to broadcasting, right? We've talked about a bluetooth device canal just broadcast out messaging messages, and any device around and can hear those, and you know, the community's been very creative with ways us that. And that's what led if you go. If you remember a little bit of the progression apples, the one that introduced the IB can protocol as a means to kind of figure out how to use that keep ability to support point of interest information beacons or using by cast apology to serve a variety of different opportunities. I think there's a lot of interesting ways to use bluetooth broadcast one is as a to support these point of interest information began. So we still are seeing a lot of museums. Putting these beacons on exhibits to allow visitors to get more information about it retail environments are deploying beacons on various products. And dial displays and so forth to facilitate chopping experience. So who to broadcast, capability servicing. These beacons is still a very growing market, but that broadcast capability of who's being leveraged for many many different things. So it's actually the fundamental technology behind bluetooth mesh. So all the devices in a mesh network are actually using broadcast and communications as a way for them to communicate to each other. But the answering requests, yes, yes, it is in this is partly. I mean, this is as you point out. This is technology adapting, you know. This is basically like we're gonna put a capability out there and see how people react to it. And what they do with it. So this this makes sense. Okay. Here's another thing. I'll add onto that you're in another area. Go. So for instance, we were in there. Still are many many sensors Lucians us gluteus they can choose any different way to communicate using that can use to point to point connection back to a gateway. They can use a broadcast communication this kind of beacon communication to communicate information back to a gateway or they gonna. Use mash. So that's one of the things that's developers really like about this flexibility. Not just one way to communicate. I can communicate over it went to wait connection. I could do to rebroadcast connection. I can do it now over mash, etc. So it's a it's provides a really good flexible platform for developers to choose. What's is the right approach for them? All right. Thank you so much for coming on the show this week. Of course, thank you for having me. That's it for this week. Thanks so much for listening.

"stacey" Discussed on Call Your Girlfriend
"If you have never heard Stacey Abrams speak before you are in for a treat, and I hope that after you listen to her talk, you will reach out to the people that you know in Georgia to help out, because guess what we all know somebody from Georgia. It's true. Board, the train follow her on social media, which is something I do not regret doing, send her a little cash center. Some support, yes. Here, Stacey. Hello, Stacey, Abrams. Thank you for coming on. Call your girlfriend. It is my honor. Thanks for having me. You are running a really tough race in your kicking ass. Right now. This is exciting. Thank you. I very happy at. We have a lot of work to do and I am cautious, but optimistic that we are headed in the right direction. We just have to make sure everybody remembers. I can only do so much. We need people to actually come out and vote. You know, it's not lost on me that you are poised to become the first woman. The first African American governor like that's, that's historically like is very heavy. How do you feel about that? It's a deep honor and I start there being positioned to open doors for others to be the first, but not the last to change the face of leadership looks like, but it's also an opportunity to talk about the barriers that a lot of us face to push through conversations that are sometimes considered awkward or uncomfortable or. Not necessary. And by being able to lead on this moment of history, I can raise conversations about money about family about challenges that we face with, you know, our siblings in our communities that a lot of others either haven't experienced or have felt comfortable talking about you talk a lot about your family and your your, your personal biography, and how so much of your political beliefs are rooted in. I wonder if you could tell us exactly how they come into play into your politics. So I'm the second of six kids. My mom and my dad are both originally from Hattiesburg Mississippi where they were both very involved in civil rights movement, but we're both very poor. I mean, my dad likes to say he was from the wrong side of the tracks. My mom's from the wrong size, wrong side of the tracks, and they were both sort of in that space of not having a lot. My mother's family was really much more destitute. My father Stanley actually did. Okay. His parents worked for the college in the Nate in the community, but they were always on the edge. They weren't the traditional. They're black black, lower middle class, not middle class, middle class. I think that part of that led to my parents very deep commitment to. Education because they knew education was transformative. But it was also about making sure that we understood that we were responsible for those around us. That service was critical. And when I talk about why I'm doing what I do, you know, I'm always brought back to how I was raised that this is what you do, but the reality is incredible. Parents and opportunity does not diminish the struggles. My parents were working poor. We are family was my mom was college librarian who sometimes made less money than the janitor who cleaned the college. My dad is dyslexic and wasn't able to get a job in an office even though he had a college degree from a very good college Mississippi. And so they still struggled. My younger brother is an amazing man, and he was part of five brothers and sisters who they're six of us altogether who had real successes. But he struggles with drug addiction and with mental health issues and with incarceration. I have been responsible.

"Hey, let's hear from Derek. Hi, Stacey and Kevin, this is there from Illinois. I'm calling in regards to question on a threes or that I've modified the whole, the keg of beer. I'm trying to monitor how frequently it's like holes and I have as e wave monitor, but it currently only reports out about every thirty minutes with the power usage is. So I don't get a very good idea of when it's actually running or not. So I was curious if you guys any recommendations of different product I could use that would allow me to track the power usage of refrigerator. Basically, along with that, if you had a way to monitor the internal temperature of the refrigerator, that would also be helpful, had trouble finding any that don't require mounting the sensor inside and it would have trouble getting out of the freezing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. All right, Darren, this is a lovely question and an easy one. For the most part. So my suggestion to you right away is used a smart plug like the we moat incite or any smart plug that has some sort of energy tracking on it and plug that in and you'll get a nice little graph of Azure refrigerator cycles. You'll see it happening. So that's that's one way to do it. And as for the temperature inside, we actually address that last week with a variety of temperature sensors. If you're worried about the wireless signal getting out of the refrigerator, which is like a giant Faraday cage, you can put it on a temperature probe, which is like the probe connects to a device in the probe, says, inside the freezer in the device is actually outside the freezer. So that's one way to do it. Most of them we found were expensive or required a required a hub, so you may not love it, but someone else did suggest a cheaper alternative. If you have smart things and are feeling incredibly technically savvy. So Todd blow. One of our listeners actually sent me an Email. Mail and was like, hey, if you guys have smart things, he's been using the Jami temperature sensors. They're rum nine dollars to check his freezer temperature. So that's an option. You do have to download a special device handler on get hub for the sensor and load that into smart things. So this is not. I mean, I think I fully believe that everyone is capable of doing this, but some people may not want to do this, but for nine bucks is pretty good option. So the, it's actually pretty easy to install a smart things handler, I had to do it for some Ferraro devices, for example, in literally just downloading the code from get hub, saving it as a text file or whatever the file format is for smart things, and the just using your smart things apt to install it. Once you do that, then smart things the hug knows what to do with information from that sensor or device. It's not so bad and you mentioned Stacey, the, we mow insect switch. That was actually one of the first Hieaux devices that I added to my house. It producible. I wish we could do. More than just look in the app and see a log or real time energy use, but there may be ways to do it. I have not looked at we mosaic PI's, but there's new simple native way to like trigger events to say, hey, the refrigerator's been running too long or something. Maybe something's wrong as a result or it's not running at all when it should be right. There's just I have not found an easy way to use that, but still it is informative. I think we'll get there on the right track. Yes, it doesn't fa- borrow. They also have energy tracking. Outlet is to tracking outlet if you have time have some. Okay. So Derek, we hope that helps you and congratulations for winning. We're going to have a new contest for October. And next week we'll tell you what you might win. In the meantime, feel free to give us a call at five one, two, six, three, seven, four, two,.

"Stacey check it out and help support our show so let's get this party started with intel and wind river all right earlier this week intel said it would spin out wind river systems to p firm teepee g for an undisclosed price this is a big deal because win river systems intel bought it back in two thousand and nine when river was an embedded systems allow us in software provider so when intel bought it i remember being very like oh hey this is intel in the iot produce mood in wind river for a long time was very independent it was actually a little weirdly independent because no one seemed to know what it was doing with intel but in twenty sixteen so a little over two years ago intel really brought it in much closer the ceo of wind river left when to mobilize earn and the thought was oh now the sin but at that same period of time intel started like shutting down some of its smaller kind of low power energy efficient they're not really energy efficient it's low power chips and it started we were kind of like i don't know if intel's going to make it on the iot and now it looks like this wind river didn't actually help intel sell any iot chips he end because there they're so many embedded os is like our tosses for embedded systems in their free it's unclear what value wind river really had to offer intel and it's probably worth pointing out even though we don't know the sale price the acquisition price in two thousand nine was eight hundred eighty four million dollars that was a lot of money back then so a curious how much of that they got back and as far as what value they added i think i don't know on so i'm not gonna say a lot or little but i suspect it was not enough because obviously they sold it but as you said stacy there's so many different embedded software platforms out there.
