NYT Reporter Kyle Buchanan Discusses the Lack of Diversity in the Golden Globes
"About the Golden Globe Awards. So, he said, it's just 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press. Paris Press, not a single black member. When you look at the nominees, it's Golden Globes so white It's 2021. Why Is this persisting within the Hollywood foreign press? You know? Well, the Hollywood Foreign press is an extremely insular bunch. You know, the reporting in the L A Times and in the New York Times this past week has a zoo revealed that several foreign journalists you know, over the years have tried to enter this group. And have been pushed out. In fact, it almost seems like the more legitimate the journalists. The worst. Your chances are of getting to this organization, perhaps because they were You know, worried about this kind of expo? Say, um wide. Are they still making while choices Because they are a wild bunch. You know, I've met Nick Those voters. They're eccentric to put it mildly, and they really thrive. On this kind of, you know, glamour and this this feeling that they are a pivotal step on the way to Oscar and they're not willing to give up any of that influence. In fact, they try toe. You know, only expanded, but they do so in such a weird way because they are secretive. In a way, you know, there's there's not They're not. They're not out there while they are out there, you know, rubbing shoulders shaking hands took himself fees. Um, if you want to define the list of their membership, that's when the H F P A really starts to clam up because they're not representing the best and brightest of global entertainment journalism far from it there, representing Maybe the savviest and canniest people in awards season that's more their speed than been trying Tost ablest any sort of legitimate credentials. The people who make up that group. So in terms of them being homogeneous, it sounds like they don't really might not particularly care. Well, yeah, I mean, they are homogeneous in the sense that there are no black voters, which is a kind of insane thing in the year. 2021. Obviously we know that Academy, which votes on the Oscars, has been taking sweeping steps over the last few years diversify its membership, which was primarily older, white and male. Gloves have not taken any such steps. And while they are somewhat divers to be Primarily rewarding American movies. To the extent that even a film like denarii, which is American, is shunted off to the foreign film category simply because it's characters often speak Korean That is indicating that ah, wide gulf between what you're covering and what you are what you look like what you're made of who makes up this group. And I think you know if they're going to purport to speak about this industry and who deserves reward with any sort of authority, and you know it's questionable sometimes whether they do or don't have it. And they have to absolutely take a look at themselves. I guess it kind of Buchanan. We're talking to him. He's the award season columnist for The New York Times. The Golden Globes are this Sunday. So here's a bright spot. Best director for motion picture category. There are more women than men nominated several fennel for promising young woman, Regina King for one night in Miami and Chloe Jiao for Nomad Land. Do you think this is the year we could see a best director Everett at the Globes of the Oscars. I do think so. You know, I'm sure the eight FDA would much rather we focus on that category than any other And certainly, you know, I mean, such as the story of award shows and often is the story of, you know, America generally that you have progress in one respect and then two steps backward somewhere else. But, yes, it was only a couple years ago that Natalie Portman was introducing the best director category is the Golden Globes. And very pointedly said Here are the five all male nominees this year that can't be said. In fact, there's a majority of women and I do expect that Chloe job for Nomad Land will prevail even if no man land doesn't take best drama, although it has a very good shot at that. Globes and not going to miss their opportunity to reward a woman. A person of color. She will be the first woman to win the best director trophy from them since Barbara Streisand for gentle Wow. He just kicked it back far for me

'The King of Talk': Remembering Larry King
"Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news. I'm Jeff Lunden in New York.
Joes library management strategy
"Me from allentown pennsylvania. It is mr jones elwin. Joe welcome back four hundred ninety one. Why is it. I think this is only the third time on shutters. What's up with that. That is a case of criminal negligence on my part. I i have a feeling your partner in crime was trying to suppress my voice. You're more than likely just because he's not here. I take shots at. That's absolutely right. have you been. I'd be good. That'd be good you know. Hey it's a pandemic. so what can we say but hanging in there Staying out more trouble than i normally would because it's harder to find trouble that's yeah it has been one crazy crazy year. Hasn't not or how are how are you guys doing with it. Down on fairly look being managed out of control i would say that four populated countries. I think australia has to be pretty close to the top of the list for the way we've handled it the that's all. i think. Awesome the here about a lot in the news here. We don't hear australia mentioned so that's interesting because they've done very well as well live managed to keep it under control will And put it on the news a lot. I think for the entirety of the year. I think streisand had about a thousand deaths if that all. I don't think we've had massive numbers at all. Victoria had a second wave way. The whole state went into lockdown for months on end and people were not allowed by the houses unless they had a good reason did they could only go within a five kilometer range and all that sort of stuff so we've been at governments have come under criticism for being too heavy handed but when i look look at africa's against say the us figures kind of think well i'd rather a slightly heavy handed government that actually keeps us alive the one that draws the just sweep it under the cap and pretend it's not a problem it's getting pretty rough here in europe is also going through the same and right now of course we're kind of in this crazy limbo where you know. We're really not getting any great direction. At this point administration. They're they're talking a lot. They're encouraging people. But obviously we still have the old administration. It's basically sand. Yeah there's no pandemic everything's fine. It's like we kind of live in two different worlds. Yeah it's been an interesting year this year so photographic. Have you been up this year. Haw well let's see. Prior to this year. I was doing a ton of traveling. Or olympus since my other sponsors teaching that kind of stuff i came into this year with what would have been literally my busiest year probably in the last twenty years might might. You're booked solid The beginning of the year. I was doing a nationwide tour. For olympus introducing the new owen. Dam one three camera. And the last trip i made was down to florida in the first week of march and Came home a couple of days later. We went into lockdown and within three weeks my entire schedule for the year was just wiped out. Everything had cancelled well in advance A few of the events went Went virtual but You know. I've always kind of been somewhat of an entrepreneurial spirit so i figured all right you need to pivot quickly and Some photographers pivoted by kind of moving into like product photography in that because fortunately people were still producing catalogues online stores. And i really didn't feel like going back into that area. I'd done that years and years and years ago. So federate i'm teaching. I'm enjoying the teaching. So i didn't learn how to do it online and i took a couple of days and did the whole pros and cons thing like okay. What are all the things that i like about online teaching. And what are all the things that i hate. And not of course was the longer list I'm a bit of a marketing nerd. So i've done a lot of marketing. Webinars where you sit there and the instructors staring down a laptop screen with really bad lady and a blurry image. And they're like okay. Let me let me share my screen with you. Oh wait hold on a second hold on I knew i had that slide deck. You're just a second you know. They're just painful. So at that point i did a ton of research figure out. What's it gonna take. How can i make a presentation. That is as close to doing in person as possible without really being there. And
Polls show Biden winning: Can you believe them?
"The polls predict that by Wednesday next week. Joe. Biden will be the next president of. The United States, how sound forecast this is however is still very much anyone's guess and we'll anything that Joe Biden or Donald Trump do or say this weekend make any difference to the way people will vote well to look ahead to the last few days of campaigning I'm joined by Jacob, parakeet us, affairs analyst, and associated the london-based think-tank llc. Ideas Welcome Jacob. Good Morning. So the last twenty four hours is very much a focus on Florida hasn't it was both candidates pushing hard in different ways. Yes. As usual, you have trump doing his big non socially distanced sort of pretend democ style rallies and Biden having adapted more to the pandemic world doing socially distance or drive in rallies being seen wearing a mask and that sort of thing. Florida is key for a number of reasons. One is that it's virtually impossible to imagine a trump win that doesn't involve Florida. If Biden wins Florida trump would have to not only win every single other state that he won in two thousand sixteen but pick off a number of states that Biden a Hillary Clinton won some quite comfortably. So if trump finish is Trump finished second in Florida then it's pretty much over for him and the other key thing about Florida is. Contrary to the what happened in two thousand with the endlessly delayed and contentious recount. Florida now counted spoke very very quickly. So we expect to know the winner in Florida probably by early Wednesday morning. So that would be an early indicator. Now, if Biden Loses Florida particularly, if it's a close loss that doesn't mean it's over and trump has one biden has numerous other paths to the presidency that don't involve Florida but especially given the. Value that trump has put on vote suppression and on trying to pressure the courts to shut down the legitimate counting of votes early, an early loss for him in Florida could take the steam out of that effort, which is why part of the reason why I think you're seeing his campaign put so much effort there. So what kind of narratives will be getting from both candidates with very very different campaigns Florida's Today. Well the trump campaign is trying to tie Joe Biden to. Latin America Socialism. Florida of course, has a very large Latino population many of whom come from Venezuela or Cuba. So trying to tie Joe Biden to be socialist leadership in Latin American countries. This been a recurring theme in the trump campaign I don't think it's necessarily a particularly accurate charge that might have worked as a campaign line slightly better against Bernie Sanders But that doesn't mean that it won't be effective in some quarters of the the mole lightining parts of the particularly the Cuban American population The counterweight to that and I think the reason why Biden has generally lead impulse in Florida albeit by a small margin is trump's management of covid nineteen has deeply alienated seniors and Florida is America's retirement heartland. So there are huge numbers of people over the age of sixty five who are also the most vulnerable to Covid nineteen and who've made up the bulk of the deaths and serious From the disease. So Biden has been losing ground with Latino voters, but he's also been making up that ground with seniors. And, show, you might see a slightly strange democratic coalition generally Republicans do well with older voters but because Biden missing is relatively unthreatening and because he's seen as more competent than handling. This disease, which predominantly affects older Americans. He might well more than make up his losses amongst the Latino voters we're looking at Biden being up in three of the key swing states which trump took last time, which is Wisconsin Michigan and Pennsylvania. What does that say about what the both candidates need to do this weekend? Well I think I mean the polling in those states particularly in Michigan Wisconsin? Has Really suggested that they're not as nearly as competitive as they were last time. The Biden has if not put them out of reach. Put them very close out of reach. Pennsylvania is a again like Florida really keyed polling. There has been a little bit closer. Trump has managed to keep Biden's average margin down to about five points verses seven, eight, nine as with the Upper Midwest. So, you could imagine a combination of voter suppression pulling error and maybe using the courts to fro out legitimate mailed in ballots on some weak pretext a big enough to bring trump over the over the top in Pennsylvania. Again. Though you know that could Pennsylvania's twenty electoral votes. It's bigger than Wisconsin or Michigan by a significant margin By also beating in Arizona in. The second Congressional district of Nebraska in the second. Congressional district main both of which award individual electoral votes he could in theory scout and electoral vote margin just on the basis of Michigan Wisconsin Arizona and the Individual Congressional district. So it's it's if anything even more key for both than. Than its Florida but Biden losing, it doesn't completely shut off Biden's path. We have widespread coverage of the number of people voting ahead of the ballot on the third of November some of predicting that with what I think eighty million votes have already cost and some predictions saying that it could be one hundred and fifty million people voting ahead of the of of Tuesday. What is that going to say about the way that votes are counted and will count come the closure of the polls There's not a single answer to that question because this is a state by state issue. Some states have relatively generous rules allowing the receipt of ballots up to suffer several days after the election as long zero postmarked before election. Day. The the issue of course is that under the supervision of trump's handpicked postmaster general mail delivery has slowed down considerably. But the impact of all this there's been a kind of you could call it a streisand effect I think of. All the attempts that trump has made to meddle with ill voting to meddle with attempts at expanding the franchise, and that has been to prioritize voting for in person early getting ballots in early the rates of receipt for. Nailed ballots amongst Democrats are very, very high. Now, there are specific places that the Democrats are worried about like Miami Dade County but that doesn't mean that they're necessarily going to lose their the fact that so many regular Democratic voters are getting their vote in early means that for these last. Few. Minutes the Party and its affiliated ideological pressure groups can focus on voters who are more regular. Maybe haven't turned in their votes yet and really focus on getting those people out to vote. So we won't know until the counting is done how that's shaped up some states give registration of voters breakdown. So we know for instance, how many Democrats have requested ballots how many Republicans are requested valid in Florida, but there's also a big population of independent some we have various polling that suggests how they might vote, but we don't know for sure and just the rates of early voting. They give us a hint as to what the ultimate vote count will be. But I think we have to be careful not over over overemphasize what we can know about who those votes four particularly there'll be a small but not insignificant crossover of people who have historically been Republicans voting for Joe Biden people who have historically been Democrat. But you'd have voted for Republicans for years but never bothered changed their party registration and that sort of thing. Finally Jacob. There's a question of peacefulness to do with this I mean. Donald, trump has already said that unless. There is a huge swing towards Joe, Biden then he will cry raked and then a whole new process begins.
Lost Bob Dylan Interviews Surface at Boston Auction House
"Long lost interviews with Bob Dylan of surface at a Boston auction house, and they contain some surprising new insights about the singer songwriter Taylor.

Divina de Campo
"Let's rewind a bit and go too little too. When you were growing up because I think it's fair to say, isn't it? When you growing up, you get all these stereotypes sort of enforced on. You don't you. You tend to remember my mother trying to get to wear a skirt wants to wait because she said, that's what girls. Whether it was a big row over that but it was a similar things going on in your household was trying to push the binary on you in some way or my my dad more than my moment, which is weird because when I came out and she did not react well. But when I was little like that was absolutely no an issue we had addressing boggs and like my favorite thing in the dressing boggs was elected. ABC's leopard-print should neely. The Laurie. Today. And it had a goat trim round the neck, and then I think, yeah. HOW SPLIT IN IT? You know I think I'd say go it was a sleeveless dress with gold trim I mean tacky as hell. So Takeda's. But that was my favorite. Yeah absolutely. Follow I. Loved it. I. Felt it was you know this is yes. I love my life I. Always Been Dressing Up Anyway Kate and hasn't been a big deal but then I remember Ed once we have play room I. Mean we're so big class cry you play. So. I remember putting all these dresses on and then going in and feel like look I got all these silly clothes on on my dad's face was he was just like incandescent and just went very nice and. It was like seething. That was that I think the first time that I remember. Thinking Oh there's something wrong doing this you know dot doesn't like it but I don't know why my experience my father is he's very much generation of men were they weren't taught how to talk about their feelings or talk or express emotion in any other way than anger. At how old would you have been? Then I think I was about four five hours really. And then the you go I, guess you getting any attitude, the playground for not conforming to agendas wineries. Yet not conforming with definitely for me it wasn't such a thing at junior school lower. The thing like junior school that just didn't didn't seem factor into people's hey. So, you know Judy School for me. Actually it was a really happy time. I felt well-supported where the no case. But somehow they didn't seem to have that much of an impact on me Oh my thinking or any of that stuff. So every time at school are is singing in the choir. I was in the you know the little school show I was leading. Violin. Bali class. So I was just on cut fruit loop. Any moment are get. That's why I was kind of confused was. She reacted really badly when I came out, but she'd never kind of held me back from doing any of those things. You know if ever there was a little quaint okayed it with me. You know I was like the absolute stereotype epitome of Funky Little A. The. loafing Barbra Streisand, get me that Bob predicts and on the radio I love a all of this like this song, my brothers and sisters used to sing to me all the time in the car was. So my show you've got it the. Match and I was like, okay why are they singing they? Sit Me Oh, it's because I'm not.

Why Actress Lisa Vidal Believes "I'm here because this was supposed to happen."
"You. Grew up acting. When did you know that this was for you? I knew from a very early age that I loved to perform. I was always singing because I'm a singer. I always had music on the radio. That was my first love. Actually I also used to watch lot of television because you know. We lived in the Bronx and Spanish Harlem, so my mother was not like letting us out some. certain times the neighborhood. We get tricky, so she was like no in my out. Or whatever and so I, watch them on television. That was my friend. I watched movies girl, so I used to I was so pulled in by movies, and then I have my my aunt, my the-they who? Is such a hero in my life. She was always taking us to movies. Song Forget. UH, she said, drop us off at the movie theater me and my presence, and she'll be like I'll be back five PM to pick you up that she felt bad for us. Abuse stuck in us from weren't allowed to hang outside. So, we would be at the movie theater. Day those days you go from one theater to one movie to another you know at then I saw funny girl, my my my d. c., funny girl and I just fell in love with Barbara streisand and how she was singing and acting. And that was it. That was it I knew I wanted to do. What do you mark as your big break? You know what my big break was a film that I did all I like him. that was my big because I like it like that and I think there was a big break for all of us in that gnome, it was a small film that became like a cult film that became huge, and so I pretty much soon after that I got signed a deal to Aden, C., which led to my semen Silbert show that was my i. like big, lead role on a network primetime television show that Steven Spielberg for. Do you Steven Spielberg Rating? You Fan Fan Mail. Did that's surreal, please? I? Thought they sent it to the wrong guy This must be a somebody else. I couldn't believe it. I mean I still have it up on. My Wall is one of my proudest moments, and I always. Love Steven Spielberg Right, but I thought it was interesting to that when you got that spinoff. And you were really going to be carrying a pilot that there was a little piece of you that worried. Can I carry this pilot? Right like that is a different level of pressure to be like this show will succeed or fail, and you're not like the fourth or fifth person down in the credits it is you. Well Yeah I mean they brought Blair underwood in and our characters just exploded on the show. You know we became a hot. Partnership shelves some Cups Yeah you know I think. I. Think when you go from a guest star. else doing these kinds of roles or even a recurring character writing comes in now. Maybe you do three episodes. Maybe you do five episodes whatever? When you come to the place of a lead. And they're they're absolutely is a whole new level of responsibility, and absolutely without a doubt there is that you know that little bit of light on my Gosh when I do this, but. That's when you. Really embrace you towns, and and recognize the you are and say. Yes I can do this. Yes, this belongs to me on here. Because this was supposed to happen and it's it's a battle right because we had that little devil on one side, a little angel on the other who they talk into each year, and so we consist. That's why that's why training is so important. That's why understanding the process of creating a character be prepared preparation. Discipline Professionalism. All of that comes into play. So that, you're standing on solid ground and you have foundation when you come into that position, you know what you're doing. I was looking through your IMDB. Have you ever played a non Latina character? I have there been a few of those roles were actually white. Jane. That was written white. Gabrielle and I have the same representation, and they sent me the script and I got a meeting with Martin Brock. Akil and she was like I know Lisa's work. And we sat down for three hours and talked about Cara and. She's like I want you to be my car. It also shows you the value of having a person of color. Be The other person on the other side of that table. Right like the heels would get that absolute asks. They are so fro. You know black and Brown. Absolute.

Super Soul Sexuality with Rabbi Lisa Grushcow
"Both been really drawn to Judaism. I know for me personally. So many of my artistic. Inspirations I mean not consciously but they're all Jewish like Bette midler Sandra Bernhardt Barbra streisand lake. These people have informed so much of my view of the arts. And you know there's a strong part of what they do is related to Judaism and their spirituality and same for me. My I like comedy against version was Sarah Silverman who Super Jewish. And she's not embrace it and what I love about that. Religion is how it's both faith but also like an intellectual practice and people love to be conflicted in argue and disagree and I was raised Catholic. But I've never felt that catalyst ISM was really a space to question and I just love it. You get to do that in the Jewish faith. I don't think we could have found anyone better than Rabbi Lisa Grechko. Who is our special guest today? She used the Montreal Legend would you say the rabbi well she's a Rockstar as much as a rabbi. Can Be yes she is a rabbi at Temple Emanuel Shalom here in Montreal. She is the first queer. Rabbi that I personally know. She's quite famous here for really embracing progressive views for a religious leader. I'm in her sermons or super popular like people actually go out on a Friday night. Yeah I heard about it from a friend of mine. Who'S NOT Jewish? Who was just going and really found something real there. I feel she would be a great character on sex in the city. Like the girls would go to my sermon. I mean I just think we need rabbi Grechko in our lives in many ways as possible so we had a great conversation with her about sexuality. Faith family even divorce because she she has the same sex partner but she was divorced in the past and that sounded like it was a bigger problem in her community than being a lesbian. Rabbi crush go also does a lot of interfaith works. He works with Muslim. Meteors Christian leaders and it was really important for us to go beyond the politics of the day or whatever opinion people can have about different religions and some listeners might be atheists or some people listening might be fervent believers. We wanted to go beyond that and ask the big super bowl questions through. Rabbi you really got into Lake you we got rabbi Grechko set up a new. Didn't waste a second to get into your big oprah like question what came first in Your Life God or same sex desire. I was conscious of my spirituality. Let's say and religious sense of connection before I was aware of my own sexuality and then I was a relatively late bloomer. I wasn't out 'til My mid twenty say so for a while there was a real sense of struggle. And how would navigate those things together But that was more. A challenge with institution spiritually. That piece always stage. Did you feel spiritual As a child because I felt very I relate because I did feel as before I was kind of socialized in school and the world I felt the presence of a higher power. Is that what you're referencing? I had I had You know it's interesting because that's one of the things that might be different about Judaism in some ways that were so community based in so behaviorally based so I was very connected to the Jewish community as a kid. I went to a Jewish day school. I went to synagogue on a regular basis Shabat Dinners. Were part of our family life family celebration so all of those things were part of it. Some of the deeper connection came through learning which Jewish is a very spiritual activity kind of encountering sacred texts and asking questions and I grew up. Thanks to my parents with a lot of nature. A lot of travel lot of just sense of of being connected to something bigger you know going out in the middle of the night and lying down on a blanket and watching star shower I would say for me. It only took on a deeper resonance. Actually when I was struggling with coming out and figuring out what that meant for my path towards the rabbinate that was in some ways the closest that I got to a sense of calling or a Pitney because it felt like there's this path that I'm on and it's not going to be as smooth as I thought it would be so if I'm going to be on this path that has to really matter to me. It has to really be what I feel like I should be doing. Were you looking for answers? And that moment I think it was much more a feeling of of yearning of desire of closeness and relationship. I would say a sense that there was something someone who I couldn't didn't WanNa walk away from you said that coming out brought you closer to God. Can you talk about what way it brought you closer to God? I mean if you look at the story of the Hebrew Bible though stories that you've learned as a kid for US issues. One of the central parts of that story is the story of the exodus from Egypt. And it's a story of if you if you know the Hebrew going from meets rhyme. Which is the word for Egypt? But literally means the narrow place to a place of openness and possibility and the God who speaks to Moses out of the burning Bush. It's often terribly mistranslated as I am that I am. You know that Wayne was assessed. Who are you and imagine the Ten Commandments? Among God says I am that I am but it really is. I will be and so from me. Coming out was a very It connected me to that story of leaving a place of of narrowness and constraint and having a new sense of of possibility and freedom And to me that was a very religious spiritual story which I understood in a whole different way. I'm certainly not the first to do that. And that story has been used by so many people in so many important ways but for me. It really resonated. At that time John were usual. Kid I think maybe the arts for me and like my experience of the arts was the closest that came to spirituality as a kid but other than you know just loving Bible stories. I enjoyed it in the same way that I enjoyed fairy tales. You know what I mean. I don't think I really thought that. Much about my spirituality growing up Christian for me. I wasn't necessarily ashamed of being queer or being gay but shame was definitely an undertone in what in what you're describing it doesn't sound like that was your experience. It sounds like it was quite beautiful discovery for you to lean on that same sex desire and that queen is that was within you. I think in that sense it really Revealed from a Fault. Line between institutionalized religion spirituality And you know it's it's ironic because I'm a representative of of organized religion though. I sometimes joke. That Judaism is as disorganized. Religion is one can get. We don't have a central hierarchy in line of authority. You know it's a good thing now. I think it's a good thing and the rabbi isn't with direct line to God. The rabbi is a teacher and a member of the community so there isn't a sense of of infallibility or of kind of being closer to God than anybody else I love So that's you know when we we tend to be an argumentative argument to people and it's not a dog. Matic religion by enlarge. It's much more about what you do then kind of signing onto a creed and so by and large. There's a lot of room to move in that. But I grew up in a an arm of Judaism which has changed since but then wasn't ordaining. Lgbt folks that piece became a real real faultline for me. And I did grow up with not anything that anybody said. But we're not seeing anybody who looked like me and having an old you know commentary that was on our in our pews at the synagogue which spoke about that chapter in Leviticus and same sex relationships as being. I don't remember what the language was whether it's something around depravity and paganism in that kind of thing so that I remember but it wasn't the overall messaging you said something about spirituality and religion and I think a lot of people feel spiritual but don't necessarily want to belong to a religion that's more organized or more conservative more conservative. I understand but I sometimes worry that we sell ourselves short by not looking because I think when we look were sometimes surprised by what we find you know and the fact is organized religion and institutions as much as they are like dirty. Words can do things that you can't do when you're just meeting in somebody's living room right. We can create sacred space. We can organize community together. We can be there for each other and offer things in different ways that you can't if it's more do it yourself you know and I figure religions have been asking spiritual questions for Millennia so to be able to come in and be part of that conversation right instead of feeling like you have to start from zero and make it up from you as you go along. I think is really powerful.

"streisand" Discussed on Here's The Thing
"Fleming told me that she tried and struck out onto other genres before she landed ended on opera. Had I grown up in New York City. The singer songwriter thing might have opened doors. Might have opened on television in high school. Winning some talent show playing a song that I wrote. Then I tried to pursue jazz then and that didn't work despite the fact that he's had a phenomenal jazz department. I just couldn't get in. She's about to mix it up again. Her Broadway debut is set for next spring in a revival of carousel. Take a listen to the rest of Renee Fleming story are- on here's the thing dot org. Look I'm Alec Baldwin and you're listening to here's the thing with no formal voice training and no money need to kick start. A career. streisand relied on raw talent to build herself up and the wiles of a man who happened to hear her at a small Greenwich Village. Club called the SOI Mardi. Erlich Mun was a music manager and almost as young and hungry as Barbara herself. He used his slim rolodex. Checks and razor-sharp. Pr Instincts to help build. Barbara's image into what it is. Today I met Mardi at the ball so I when he came one night I was nineteen nineteen and he saw me as the first act the opening act and said if you ever need me kid I was. I was kept over at the ball suave many times but then I couldn't get a job. Finally I got a job and they were paying me something like seventy five dollars a week or four hundred dollars a one hundred dollars a week but I could eat you know so if people wanted me to sit down I would order a baked potato sour cream and chives butter so so but I couldn't make a living. I really needed more so I called Marty and I say is there any way you could get me one hundred and fifty dollars a week doc. Martin told me many years later that he actually paid the fifty dollars because they wouldn't go for the the raise I loved it. That's why he's such a great person. Greenville invested in me. Yeah you've been with him now for how long it's like well. We separated for a while for a few years why he didn't get along with The man in my life at the time was John Peters. I've heard this story before but then believe me. We got back some as I could so that period is over fifty years but if you take out the what does he do for you now. What does he provided you provide for you now? You trust him everything. He reads scripts full on manager. Today's his birthday by the way is eight years old birthday Mardi early I was watching these Not just old cabinet shows where famous actors would come. Is it a spring roll. Is it meet. I think this one is vegetarian. This or for alleged -tarian I don't eat beef. Is there a egalite one. Yeah I think it's chicken visit. Isn't that good. I remember I was sitting in your apartment years ago. I said very hungry when I work consists. Corman was there coca and you we're GONNA do. Prince of tides came to meet with you. I remember to touch and your woman took care of your apartment came in and you said you said y'all Gauley little something. I could eat a little something. I eat a little something. She brings some crew today or crackers or whatever some spreads are you looked at me and you said God I if I can you know how many here ready to a movie and I love to eat and I said he go if we do this together. I'm going to hire US chef. I'll pay for it and this chef will come down and we're GONNA I eat whatever the fuck we want. That's why I left you. Say and you look at. We could be. Just forget about Dr Russell's crazy with all right. Let's go down to make the movie that we feel like eating we eat. We don't feel like eating me. Donate go crazy. Great idea and the new cast. What's his name in the Ma Nick? I'm teasing AH yes. Because he had to be a white looking southerner not mean your New York our love that movie did you. Oh good now watching those us old caveats on comes Brando and oncoming this one and that one from that generation of Belafonte when he was young all that civil rights activism. Were you active than as as well. Oh yeah I was supporting Bella. Abzug for Congress in Nineteen Seventy nineteen seventy. I even supported Mayo. Lindsey who was a Republican. Because I liked him I like the way he spoke. You know I thought it was a leader. He was a leader and he was fair and he was believed in justice and just like to music also durable looking. So you know it's like you know what happened when I sang in Houston by the way before the storm. I invited the bushes. President H W Bush mean Forty one and Barbara Bush to come to my concert and they came and I gave him socks I heard he collect collect socks and they came backstage and she brought me a pin and I gave her something they would just so lovely even now I wrote to see if they were okay house house their house and they said we're fine. We're in Maine and this and that you know in other words you know. He had dignity. He had great dignity and she was an advocate for women's rights. I like good people. That's why I can't quite understand what's happened to this country and it all it goes back to women to women against women. Yesterday I was watching Hillary being interviewed by somebody and the first question was so rude by the woman. Well how do you now that the Democrats will want you around when my foot. When she was running there were three women who interviewed her as well and they were so faces? scrunched up on television. Well so are you trustworthy. Are you not trustworthy. I mean they would like shockingly rude attitudes foods and I told her chief of staff you know I think you should be interviewed by men. They're going to be nicer to her than the women. Fifty fifty three percents of white women voted for Donald Trump. Now how do you figure that. I saw her on the view this morning and I think I would have said he was in my space like that. I don't think you have to call him a creep. But you could say you know you're going to get your own time. They're going to. They're going to ask you a question and would you like me to stand behind you in the shot. I don't think so so if you don't mind. Can you see the myself if she did did that to him. I use that phrase and appended to a lot of things if she had done that to him if she had said that about him. So you sing. At Clinton's inauguration you're close to Clinton to the the old Clinton years the nineties. They were great and they're great. I have my criticisms of Clinton I have my criticisms of him and his policy. What did you criticize? Decide about. His piece is acquaint idea. Now you never hear the running for office talk about peace and a policy and strategy to get us to peace we were in a state. It'd perpetual war we spend violent trillions of dollars remain trillions with a t that we don't have we don't I mean I am I am I make it very as simple for myself I read. I have a copy. I carry it around in a folder of my favourite writings of I have. I'm one of them. Is Is ours. Farewell Address in the coining. The phase the military-industrial Iran district and complex. Send him but he says you know every missile that is fired we lose this every bomb that we drop. We quit cost us this. He refers to this world in arms as our new Eisenhower. The last man to be elected president acclamation man who did not want the job Everyone around him said you one bro. You gotta run for this job. You got to do this. And Eisenhower. The Hood Ornament of the American military machine walks out the door and says watch out for these people he warns the military industrial coined. The phrase the military-industrial complex basically watch money from they have too much power. And we've lived keeps getting progressively worse and worse and worse. Where and I don't think Clinton was Hillary Clinton voted for the war in Iraq that it was the one thing that really upset that that was almost a dealbreaker for hormones? But it'd be you have to remember this 'cause I've discussed this with her and and President Clinton she at the time thought that Bush would keep his word Bush forty three and they were supposed to to go to the UN. They were supposed to have weapons inspectors Make sure that there was nothing there that wasn't done. We had weapons happens inspectors because I used to talk to Scott Ritter who was a weapons inspector there for seven years and he said there are no weapons left and if there were any chemical weapons they have a shelf life. They're they don't work that's what we saw.
"streisand" Discussed on Here's The Thing
"Then over the following years we also learned. She's a great actress appear. She is trying to win. REDFORD's love in the way we were short waves I mean you have to and I'll keep making them until your every wonderful thing you should be and will be. You'll never find anyone is good for you as I am to believe in you as much as I do our love you as much and know that streisand develops a reputation Asian for being difficult and for being a bit of a recluse she gets married divorced has a kid but all the while she just keeps getting better and more more famous until she's this unique character in American culture a megastar on her own terms since we first met in nineteen ninety. We become friends. We talk at her home in southern California by the way. Still do me a favor. Take the clock and make sure it works like a task needs batteries wound or okay. Okay thank you so much you walk around the house and you have your. Let's just goes you're making those. How is this not taking care of you? See to work for somebody like you or me. You have to understand the artist's temperament people don't see that the time is wrong. I wasn't going to start with at this. No but I'll ask but I'll ask you because that instinctive eye for detail and just thinking all the time but I want this. I want this. What this is that? What naturally propelled you into directing films? Yes that and also it was something that happened during the way we were where were two scenes were cut out that were intrinsic to the value of the story and it made me so. Oh crazy that they couldn't see that Algebra two that propelled me into it. I couldn't understand it and it's hard to Carl with a you know a hit movie. I don't know if it was a hit at the time. Tell you the truth. It's grown to say was Warren Beatty said to me once it is it until you take ultimate responsibility and you're willing to direct the movie you're going to be constantly frustrated. He said you must consider that it was so delicious. And it's like you know when you finally have the power to control your work you you get very very humble in a sense. It's like I wanted to give power way to other people as well. You know I would say to my stanton you run that course With the camera man. This is the shot but I want you to be able to tell me where to stand in other words. It's a feeling of such gratitude where you you never have to raise your voice because everybody's finally listening you don't have to get angry. Sorry about anything. They weren't listening before sometimes. So sometimes when I would say things as just an actress like this is what I'm telling you this story of the way we were it went on-deck fears you know. They didn't agree with me. Whatever but when you see something so clearly That's wrong to me. Your what could be right or see. I had such a great time directing dental because I did it in England and in Czechoslovakia Gawky AH in England. They're not afraid of women. Powerful women strong women because they had a queen. They have a Queen Queen and at the time they had the prime minister. Who was Margaret Thatcher? So I was shocked at the respect that I had and as a first time director couldn't believe it And the crew was so kind and just it. It was the most wonderful experience I must say. And even the The Czechoslovakian government was wonderful to me. Because as I needed Jews to be in the synagogue and pray and so you know it was during communist times and they went to the the Jewish community thank God and had them come so I didn't have to teach them how to be Jewish now how the pregnancy is real juice. Real chooser wasn't Italian justice where they have to say well. How do you stand at a synagogue? And how do you pray. And it was. It was wonderful and also. Well you know when you have extras in Czechoslovakia. Then they didn't give them lunch so the the people would come with like bags of their lunch which broke broke my heart so I would you know. Give them our food which we never had vegetables. We had to send to London or France or Italy to get vegetables staples because their food diet was like hot chuck. I loved it of course bread and butter and hot chocolate in the morning with whipped cream. was there my kids. That's what I wanted to be thinner but well and everyday I would not every day but every few days I would bring in past these. You know with that delicious dough and the meat inside and we'd always have the most delicious tease. I'd bring in those cream like doughnuts shaped like a hot dog from wimpy's and you know eat this delicious cream with the doughnuts on my God was so good and they thought it was very sweet because the whole crew wrote a letter. That's one of my prized possessions. I must say and they wrote this letter to the newspapers and said that you know mystery said something like Miss streisand never raises her voice and has smile for us every day. And it's like not the stories we've heard about her and no newspaper would publish it. But it figures it's like Hillary Clinton as you you said. The upside of that experience with gentle was working in a culture where the power of women was just accept it and I'm I'm Crestfallen to say the least but what happened here. Not just because the sky I want but I really do think misogyny and well eighty four. I did get some sort of award from women in film directing dental and a lot of my speech was about women against women because the reviews of gentle from women were vicious. You know in other words. They didn't even talk about the celebration of of womanhood that a woman could not only you know make dinner and have babies but she could have an intellect she could want to study. Be something more than men do do do do it. Mendoza just equality you know so to reader review that said her. She wore a design the New York Times she wore a designer yarmulke. Now everything every piece of clothing in in that movie was authentic that same year. There was the film directed by Ingmar Bergman Fanny and Alexander. They were the same Yarmulke but nobody attacked that film. I love detail so I would you know for years. I would do research about Polish Jews about these Jews that choose everything. The Evil Institute in New York A talking to scholars studying Talmud just to bring that. Because I do believe that when you study like that and do the research you don't have to act that it's like the camera. Picks up the truth truths even just behind your eyes in the sound of your voice. Whatever it is mine you know I had this wonderful shot? I I thought the cuts from a chicken coop to me sitting behind the bars up separated from the men in the Schule and that shot was attacked by this. This woman critic Janet Maslin name was now she could attack my lips. And could that's true. I'm a terrible lip sinker. I can't do because when I did movies. Funny Girl and Hello Dolly. You know they record the soundtrack three months before you shoot and I have to be in the moment as as an actor. I don't know how gonNa feel when I actually perform it. So that's why when I did the movie Star is born. It's all real. It's all I had a number of replicates I did not want I needed to be free to be in the moment so we recorded on the spot. What do you call that live? It was alive and then what I would do is Because I had final cut on that movie I could control those things We would shoot the close ups. I Sa- where the performance really counted. And then I would just choose it right on the spot. Okay I think I would do about one to four takes wchs you know all these stories about me like I do. Millions of takes. Most of them are false. And so let's say I would take take three you know and and then move the cameras back to the wider shop match to that. Because you didn't have to see me close you know not doing the lip sync. Good are the documentary film film about can extensively about Ken and Ryan Gosling. We corner him at a at a at a hotel Jimmy Tobacco and I did this thing called seduced an abandoned and we get gosling at the Beverly Hills Hotel or the Bel Air Hotel and long story short as he has this beautiful explication of of how agonizing it is to shoot films just in that kind of Arthur Murray by numbers way. We have a match to this to this. It can't be fresh and it's painful. Oh and that's why I love long takes because I think I'm from the theater and we had to do a whole show right so I don't like pieces. I mean you I. The Fun of directing to me is designing the shot the camera accommodating the actors so the actors. There's a lot of scenes in gentlemen antelope. You can see like this. They're all in one move. Practically in other words we come in through a door and I'm in in in the foreground. Let's say but he who's following me the my lead actor Who was Mandy Patinkin? Anytime and he still is You know we see him standing there and then he comes forward and I sit down. He becomes he standing up at. The camera. Never moved. But you see everything then. The camera moves as we're together but it doesn't cut and then he has you know when when he leaves me he you see him go out the door. He slams the door and the camera moves in a little bit as I'm thinking about it. That's the scene but it's what's fun about that is is that we're all on our toes. You can't make a mistake in most of these shots that I do that. There's no coverage for Ronnie honey and of course the the greatest seems very little coverage the actors play the scene in the frame quiet. That's right now in the time that you made films uh-huh the many years you've made films the successful acting and not directing successful as a director and producer.

CEO Let's talk a little bit about your theme this year it's called what's next why what's next and what is next so what's next is that so we're looking for faster growth in the future then in the past and but what's next is the growth the economy goes for the stock market what do you mean economy and and what I think is that when you think about the turmoil that's taking place in the stock market now and everyone is afraid that's you know and people have higher amounts of cash and they've ever had before in Europe they have negative interest rates people so concerned is eighteen central banks can in Rio do there The interesting United States are have been going down the way I think about it though is that the stock market today is pretty much the same values nations that it was in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and sixteen point six times earnings or sixteen point five times earnings then then was amidst turmoil you had the city's on fire the national guard the streets are trying to keep law and order yet the Vietnam War protests women's rights protesting so so everything was it's a mess but but really sticks and the assassination of President Kennedy swapping my office about I have a lot of younger people mouse and they said tell me about this assignations sixties and people said well John Kennedy said anyone else and they said I don't know it was Martin Luther King in one thousand nine six eight and Robert Kennedy Nineteen Sixty eight they tried to get George awesome so so there was turmoil and it was a concern that that the country was going to survive but the stock market then was thousands on Al Jones is now twenty six or twenty seven thousand twenty six times the economy then was eight hundred and fifty billion is now twenty one point three trillion twenty five times so all you had to do this believe that this country was going to survive and invest then and you would have made twenty five hundred money and so I think that what's going to happen in the next fifty years of course I'll be one hundred twenty six by then and you can reach me at Barron Funds Dot Com they will know where uh-huh and but but I'm thinking about the next the next fifty years it's going to be similar to the last fifty years that'd be twenty five times or money if you invest now and and and even better is that interest rates today or one and a half percent one point six percent for ten years they're normally four and a half percent for ten years you have platform investments now so it used to be when I was young and you wanted to make money you'd build a factory for a million dollars or hotel and then maybe eight hundred thousand one hundred fifty thousand after you take the risk of putting up a million and so but now you've you've come into capital late business you have technology I therefore other people giving you money writing off have platform built you could be a licensor people could be using your business in the cloud and then all of a sudden you start getting revenues and that revenue you just seventy eighty ninety percent margin that's worth more than a earnings per share company without having put up the capital people finding some of these two so you can do it exactly so it's capital low interest rates the technology technology is making businesses grow faster because and and also it's it's making your costs be lower and then knowledge knowledge is growing the fastest pace than it's ever grown and it used to be one hundred years ago that knowledge doubled every hundred years and then after World War Two it was twenty five years and now it's every eighteen months and with the Internet of things going knowledge is going to double according to IBM every eight hours or twelve hours knowledge humankind but when when you look at our growth that we've seen to this point a lot of people say our economy is just stuck in a slower growth economy we're never going to be able to grow faster pace we've seen it pick up a little bit over the last several you ears but why isn't reflected in the numbers why isn't the economic growth stronger because you're right information technology all of these different ways of increasing our productivity are it's not reflected in government numbers right now people are afraid well you're in one of these the economy doesn't go like this it goes like this and and so the result to that whenever goes down people say this is it this is the end I better get out and so all these people watch remote show in the morning and everyone talks about well the stock market invested

"Book personified she's also personified no doubt here's the thing about her when we were talking about her her brooklyn nesh and her jewishness one of the things let barbra streisand was able to do and i think one of the bases for her stardom was it she took her jewishness and she converted it into a larger sense of otherness you know when you look at movie stars and she always wanted to be a movie star she never wanted to be a singing star look at movie stars from the period before streisand these are people we all aspired to be we never felt that they were outsiders we didn't identify with them we hoped to be them what was streisand change that transaction and outsiders she looked like us she acted like us she suffered many of the shame indignities that we suffered and so when barbara streisand came on the scene the source of popularity in my estimation was that we could identify with her and she was on vicarious vessel for success yeah i always thought you otherness otherness you bet and that made her almost the underdog that we all rooted for and also will we're all underdogs most of us and though she had this colossal voice which i actually think when you have that much talent neil can put a distance between you and the audience but when you're acting and you're acting the way she did i always felt like the ordinary woman was looking at barbara streisand and saint go get him go get them ordinary woman is looking at barbara streisand and also saying i know that she knows what i've been going through that's true she had to go through the same thing and it's interesting to me that when you look at her movies her movies you're about that you know she generally plays a woman who's been put upon a woman who has to fight to succeed a woman who doesn't always get the guy at the end of the movie that's right most of our movies are romances but if you look hitter movies at the end of the film whether it's it's funny girl or it's the way we were or its gentle she doesn't usually get the down right and this is by the way is the opposite of woody allen who always gets the beautiful woman always.
