Hidden Histories - Rosewood, Tulsa, Chicago
"Halfway between Tampa and Tallahassee, a hundred yards off state route, twenty four and ten miles from the next town stands a handsome Pale Yellow House with decorative white trim on the two story porch. The house was the only survivor of an episode of such extraordinary violence that it boggles the mind how quickly and completely it was swept under the rug. An entire community was burned to the ground in an incident of racist asymmetrical warfare. And most people have never even heard of it. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. The community had been or technically still is Rosewood, Florida. It was settled by both black and white people twenty years before the civil war, but the Jim. Crow segregation in the Post Bellum decades put a clear divide into the community. The town was incorporated in eighteen seventy after it got a post office on a train stop and was named Rosewood for the Pink Cedars that were also the base of its economy. Residents worked in lumber, yards, mills, and even a pencil factory. Until the cedars had been overharvested, and the factories began to close. Most of the white residents moved to nearby sumner. But one couple John and Mary right who ran the general store? They were kind to their neighbors, and were known to Slip Candy to the black kids who hung out at the store, possibly because their own children had died young. The white flight continued into the nineteen twenties when Rose Woods population of about two hundred was entirely black plus the rights. The little hamlet got by just fine. Until New Year's Day nineteen twenty-three. Over in Sumner, a woman named Fanny Taylor woke her neighbors, saying a black man had broken into her house and attacked her. Rather than alert sheriff, her husband immediately gathered a group of men. Including clansmen who were in the area for a rally and a tracking dog. the, dog, lead them to the railroad tracks, which led to Rosewood. The mob, which would grow to be three hundred strong got it in their head that they were looking for a black man named Jesse Hunter who had escaped from a chain gang. The dog ran through the open door of a house and back out with that of wagon tracks. When the homeowner swore that no one else had been in his house, the mob tied him to the back of a car and dragged him down a dirt road. Then they tracked down the owner of the wagon whose tracks the dog sniffed. When he also claimed ignorance and innocence, the mob mutilated and killed him. The mob came to the House of Sarah carrier the Taylor's laundries. Two dozen people most of them. Children were hiding inside having heard what was going on already driven out of their homes by fear. For whatever reason the mob was sure that carrier was hiding Jesse Hunter. They fired on the House and carrier. Sons returned fire. When it was over both Sarah and her son Sylvester carrier had been fatally shot, though Sylvester had managed to kill two of their assailants. Had, anyone bothered to talk to Sarah carrier about Fannie, Taylor. She would have been able to tell them about Taylor's lover. Her white lover who she had been with before the attack. As, the mob kicked in the front door of the carrier house, the people hiding inside fled out the back door to the relative safety of the nearby. Swampy Woods. Not. All were able to get away though. Carriers, other son James was found by the mob who reportedly made him dig his own grave before killing him. The newspapers of the nearby towns caught wind of what was happening. They ran exaggerated. Retailing's of the siege of the carrier House and blatantly false reports of roving bands of armed black citizens. Seeing that even more white men poured into Rosewood believing that a race war had broken out. Apparently it's only a race war when the race you're targeting fights back. The manhunt and terror campaign wasn't confined to that single night, but stretched on for nearly a week.
'All Black Lives Matter'
"And also beyond black. Trans Women being excluded from the conversation. We've also seen trans men like Tony mcdade be excluded as well he was a trans man shot by police in Tallahassee last month, and some people have been fighting to have. His name honored at protests as well for people who don't get why he should be included. What what do you say to them? THEM WHY is it important that Tony's name be included if the Senate Trans, humanity and Trans lives right and I think the say people want answers from the Tallahassee Police on Tony. mcdaid on who they say was armed. They say was this who they say was that, but they're not really a lot of reports about what happened. It's only the what the police are saying. Happens. And then then a lot of people are also talking about. She's not a victim of police violence, but Nina pop who is them a most recent I'm Black Trans Woman. Who was stabbed? Then Roll Missouri in early. May so I think that the those that push. To include their names? Is Just Center Trans. People and Trans. Lives and black lives in this moment, and there was even a march the other day that Senate on stonewall where a group of activists did a march that was explicitly devoted to him. In the midst of the protests for George Void so i. think that's what that's about. What would a truly inclusive black lives matter movement? Look like to you. I! Think truly was the black lives. Matter would look like the movement that the three original founders had envisaged right, and we should say three founders you referencing. Are Patrisse cullors Alicia? Garza, and ultimately that's right. The irony is that two out of three of the founders of all living, and then two hundred or three. R LGBTQ and they when they started were deliberately creating a movement that was intersectional, and which is committed to fighting transphobia. It's actually one of their stated principles, but the problem. Is that because Blm? For sorts of reasons that makes sense. It's not a hierarchical organization. It's decentralized one through decentralisation that means that the local group of people who ever decide to pull themselves together and declare themselves the Ambi- Ellen RBM. and. That means that you can end up. Not Trying to end up. Hating the existing biographies as they exist, and so, that's what I think happened. I don't think that it's a straying of. I think that it's just a structural thing and and the decision to create a decentralized organization which means that those values that are held at the top. Don't fall down all the way to the bottom because it's not a top down organization, so it really do think that that's part of

Summoning the Courage to Change the Power Structure
"So. Gardner has welcome to Latino rebels radio. I. Thank you so much for having. So I have a lot to talk to you about and I know we are going to talk about covert and incarceration and health but. Obviously this week I think the entire nation was shook with what has happened in Minneapolis and I and I just wanted to get your thoughts about the death of George, Floyd or how? Trauma and how outrage actually? I WANT WANNA. Get your two takes like how you. How do you feel like looking being in a someone? This week in the middle of Pandemic when this is happening, but also just like the health implications of constant trauma, and I just had a really I'm from privilege, and I'm having problems with this, so I'm going to get your thoughts i. Yeah. We're in the same boat I. Today's my first day as President at Marguerite Casey Foundation. Got The right day. And I feel and. On. The one hand really devastated not only. Because of the murder of George. Floyd also because of the murder of Brianna Taylor, because I'm not of Tony mcdaid that. We are living in witnessing. Sort of the constant assassination of black people. By a state that does not value their lives and I'm really torn up about it I on the one side I feel. Like my sector, like philanthropy is often at the edges on not willing to be abolitionist, not willing to call on not only police accountability, imagining supporting organizers in leaders in our communities to imagine a world where detention and incarceration and policing aren't the only ways that we resolve the issues that we have with each other. and on the other side you know we really quickly as an institution, we put out. Six hundred thousand dollars to leading black led organizations in Tallahassee in Minneapolis. In Louisville. That are at the front lines, both of the abolition, the fight for abolition and and to try to address the issues that are happening today, and so the health consequences for all of our families for all of us is a extreme like. How can we imagine a different world a different future where being killed every day when brothers and sisters are being killed everyday when our aunts and uncles in MOMS and dads are held in detention and put into prison when our political leaders are. Corporate leaders are nonprofit leaders Fine the courage to actually step up and say we deserve better. Our families deserve better. Yeah, I'm devastated Julio. Frenk I I'm really glad you. I wanted to ask you that question and I. Really I really appreciate you like putting it in the context of what you do because I do think. In this world sometimes we're taught to you know. We can only stay in one lane, or and I think you know even me as a journalist like. I've struggled this week. And in the context of like Cohen teen in the context of what you wanted to talk about as well which I also think you know. It's funny because we just published on Friday. Three letters from migrant detainees inside of a immigration jail in Illinois. That, twenty, trans queer weblog reached out and we. We published their words. He's people are saying these conditions. You know I am worried I am. I'm not getting any help. I'm being dehumanized and we just decide well. These these letters came out so there's a risk because you're like they WANNA come out in public, but then when you come in public, it's like. It's a criminalized system. People are speaking out. Talk to me how this is interconnected in the in the work that you do because you're like the reason why we wanted to talk about what you're saying you. You mentioned abolitionist them. You've mentioned. Detention jails, and how this is how society is just not getting it especially now, especially during covert so. How do you begin to connect it all? Yeah, you know philanthropy is really weird, and on the one side I am clear that philanthropy isn't. Better of a functioning democracy and are robust and fare economy right that philanthropy exists mostly because he's our tax dollars that are not. That are awarded. And rich people, and then they're rich institutions get to be the arbiters of who is deserving of resources in a moment. What ideas are deserving of being lifted up? What leaders should be resourced, right? I. I I am clear that I'm like in A. that. I'm holding contradiction right that I believe in a functioning stage with the safety net that taxes are most. Wealthy at the benefit of all of us and I work at an institution that as as been created because of these failures and. I think that. Many of my peers in philanthropy have given up. The ability to actually contest for power to use these positions and the resources that we have Julio. We are one institution right? We have seven hundred over seven hundred million dollars in an endowment. That we get to us not only to try to supplant government or take the place of government, not only to create a band aid on the cancer that our communities are facing. We can use these resources to support leaders organizations to start to create evidence that our families can be more powerful to start to create evidence that our government can actually for us that it could be more responsive than it can look like us. That I can talk and feel like us. We can create evidence that our economy doesn't have to work only at the expense of our most vulnerable workers right. And many I think many of my peers don't see that

Multistem A Stable
"Dr Van Dockland has served as chairman of the board of directors at Ather since August two thousand and as CEO since the company was formed overseeing the growth and development of the primary business operations of the company and the transition from a venture backed startup to nasdaq-listed Public Company. He also serves as chairman of the National Center for Regenerative Medicine. Doctor Van Lynn received his PhD genetics from Stanford University School of Medicine and earned degrees in both economics and molecular biology at the University of California at Berkeley. I'd like to start by asking. How regenerative medicine therapies are different than traditional pharmaceuticals and biologics? And what value can they bring questions? So regenerative medicine really consists of several different types of their include cell therapy gene therapy gene modified cell therapy and then tissue engineering approaches so those four different sectors. If you've will comprise collectively the the regenerative medicine space and regenerative general medicine is fundamentally different from traditional pharmaceuticals or approaches that have been used to develop biological their babies. Because typically those therapies are very specific entities or single agent therapies that hacked through a discrete well defined mechanism of action. Cells are different in. That sells can actually work through multiple different mechanisms of action so they're multidimensional in that regard. Gene therapy is different because gene therapy is not meant to provide a temporary fix or a specific problem or a specific. But it's meant to provide in some instances permanent you're or a long term cure by addressing the underlying defect that is affecting the patient in causing the condition or causing the disease so gene therapy and cell therapy or a little bit different from one another in terms of how they differ from pharmaceuticals and blogs but together they really represent a broad approach kind of a paradigm shift. If you will in terms of how people think about approaching the treatment The whole range of different diseases and conditions that are really not well served under current standards of care and that regard that really gets to the type of the value that can bring because you can imagine that in contrast the putting somebody on lifetime therapy of different types of medicines to help mitigate the damage specific disease or condition if you can actually offer up a specific intervention whether it be one or a series of administrations of cell therapy or gene modified cell therapy or gene therapy approach and affect long term durable improvement and even cure for many patients. That's a pretty exciting prospect and it also stated with a Bali now. It also creates some potential challenges. Because we're still trying to figure out. How do we establish a reimbursement? Framework for therapies. That might be single or a single administration. That could be cured. It have an impact over many many years. But there's actually been some pretty good progress on that front so both in terms of the way that these therapies work and also the impact they can have in some cases over very long timeframes. I think it's it's pretty exciting. I agree completely. I think it's really exciting. To think about cheers for diseases that have been managed or even untreatable up to this point and also What you mentioned about a new way to look at it is also really important. Because they're more expensive but you have the potential to cure or a therapy. That will last for a long period of time. And so it's exciting to think about these new therapies in along those lines. I was hoping you could share with listeners. In recent years what have been some of the most exciting clinical breakthroughs regarding regenerative medicine. Well it's actually pretty exciting in the sense that there's a growing number of things that either been validated through clinical development now approved by the FDA and other regulators on the cell therapy front. The Car T. therapies. Which are gene modified cell? Therapy approaches? Current therapies are actually tallahassee. You take cells derived from the patient themselves. You genetically modified those cells reintroduce into the patient to help fight the cancer that has in fact. By definition these are patients that have failed other forms of therapies other forms of intervention and the progress on that front has been incredibly exciting where we see several approaches. They've really had an impact. In terms of improving clinical outcomes in many cases for patients. They really had no other no other hope because they had exhausted all the available treatment options and then they were basically treated using these types of approach so those approaches are pretty exciting. I think bed some of the gene therapy there. Several gene therapy products that have been approved over the past several years whether it's Things from Bluebird or he'll chance Ma from onto partis or a vaccine which is the company that Nevada's acquired or looks turn up from spark therapeutics. All of these have shown very very exciting response levels among the patients that are being treated very very high levels of Progress Clinical progress or curative effects or demonstrable improvement in the primary clinical outcomes. And I think in many respects these just represent the tip of the iceberg. If you will in terms of things that are that are coming Recently actually just a few days ago out at the J. P. Morgan Conference in San Francisco the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine. And every year they do state of the industry overview and they present a lot of different data that really describes the phenomenal progress in terms of clinical development and companies advancing to the various phases of clinical development or seeing more more things in phase two and phase three and then also highlighting other things that are well-positioned or could be well positioned for approval. Within the next couple of years. I think all of the data that was presented this year really reinforces and underscores the fact that the regenerative medicine sector and community as a whole is making incredible progress that is attracting live investments a lot of partnerships and as making really good progress with respect to regulatory and clinical side of things. I mean we now have over a thousand programs that are in clinical development the regenerative medicine sector and I think that that really covers a lot of really exciting opportunities that that a lot of people have hope and optimism around in terms of how can change medicine as we know.

The Battle of the Hotels: Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and IHG
"Let's get into it. The Hotel Battle Hyatt Hilton Marriott. And here's our moderator. Julian Keel teepee emeritus director of credit cards and points and miles. Take it away Julian. Thank you Brian. I'm Jillian Keel. The director of credit cards and points and miles at the points guy. I am excited today. I have four hotel experts with me and we are going to be doing the battle of hotels. Let's start with Zach griff our travel endless. Hello Zack Hey Julian how's it going. Tell me what Cheney covering today I'll be covering my personal favorite. Hi Hi. It's a very big points in miles favorite also with us. Jt Enter our senior points and miles writer. Hello JD Jolyon. which brand do you talking about? I'll be defending is she. which is the hotel? Branwar spent the most nights this year and in the last two and a half years since going pneumatic a serious high HD HD fan. Yes all right sounds good. We've got cursor Ross and our points in miles reporter. which brand do you talking about today covering Hilton? which is my personal favorite brand? Lorenzo Hilton fans out there and then finally summer hall our director of travel here at Tgi Hud summer. How Juliet Hot Yes so I am going to be defending Mary bond boy. It is actually the program that I have had top tier status with the longest. Now hot minute since I had hiatt so I I have become a Marriott girl sort of yeah and a lot of Marriott in the news in the last year so let's start right there. What would you say for each? We'll start with you summer. What is the one thing? The one worst thing about Marriott's in one sentence from the best thing about Marriott is Saint Regis their high end properties. He's really are amazing. aspirational and something that Makes points worth it for me. So on the flip side I have had a lot of problems with the integration. They are now fully integrated program with Starwood Arwood but there was some serious serious rocky roads and lost points to get there So that was. That's been the worst part for me the last couple of years. Yeah there's been a lot of complaints about it's not just me. Yeah we'll get to that. Jt How about you. For I. H G best thing in worst thing about it. Yeah the reason why she is. The promotions are really great. The rewards program especially with credit cards. You get great night's for cheap. The worst they would definitely be a lack of hotel benefits like guaranteed late. Checkout even has a top tier. I don't get that or breakfast at all hotel brands and you're a top tier elite at a lot of hotel brands. And we'll get just a little bit Carita. As far as Hilton best thing and worse thing I would say Hilton is probably my favorite because it has the most accessible elite status so you get the most bang for your buck with your top tier status. I'd say probably the worst thing is how they tend to devalue their own points Frequently and without notice. Yeah if you're into the the point smiles but some people may just like Hiltons in general. That's true yeah. And Zach Hyatt like I said before points in miles favorite best and worst thing. Thanks for letting me take this one home because the clear clear win for high at here Hi. It's top tier. Elite status is easily the most rewarding of all of them They're fantastic about offering consistent benefits across all the different hotels whether it's confirmed sweet upgrades guaranteed late. checkouts breakfast everywhere under the sort of like exclusions that you get with some of the other chains and earning and burning points with height is super easy transferable currencies from trace and Yeah the only real issue is you can't find height everywhere Hi It's a portfolio is a little bit more limited than the other larger legacy chains but Hyatt. If it's in a place you're traveling going to. It's often the best hotel to choose but some people would argue that the key point of a hotel what you need the most is for them to be one there where you need it and that is somewhere somewhere highest serious For sure and hides doing its due diligence there. And they've had some recent acquisitions some other hotel chains so hopefully they will continue on that making a lot of party partnerships small luxury hotels taking over to Tallahassee so they have integrated more properties into their portfolio. But yes agreed. Are y'all crazy so I have heard High at yeah. They're Nice but you probably won't have one where you are and I've heard ice she. You don't really get anything being elite and I've heard Hilton. Yeah your points may be worth nothing tomorrow and yet here. y'All sit defending. These is the best loyalty programs. It's really quite entertaining. Maria does have the most hotel Marriott has close to seven thousand properties around the world. They do have legit elite status benefits. I love my free breakfasts. This is the selection. I make as a platinum when I check in and yeah they do have some properties have gone up in points but it typically isn't a surprise that just happens overnight so I think you'll lost already. We can wrap it up now. I think Mary also has its own HASHTAG bond void. It does so what is it. People who may not know what is point is is is the term that people use when they get unexpectedly screwed over by Marriott may or may not have also been yes I also was bond void So so that's no no. They might be now. How far do you have to fall when you're already starting with not much like with Marriott? You go in with high expectations tation so get knocked down a little bit. You still come out ahead. I've been bond void and yet I have also been saint. Regis it even unfair though at this point to say with that you are going in with high expectations when it comes to customer service I really I have had real problems where I had hours and hours on the phone. I've written stories about these on the points guy real frustration legit but I will say most of those are now in the rear view mirror. I'M NOT GONNA say it's not still happening to someone but a lot of the problems. uh-huh were centered around reservations made before the two programs merged and we're pretty much past the date or our past the date now. That's even possible so I'm not saying you can't that still have problems of Marriott but I can say that I'm not really having those anymore and I had some big ones. If I was still going through that day after day with Marriott I would have said Cya Nahra eh but I'm not and so instead I'm just living it up. You know at the Western snowmass and skiing out for thirty five thousand points tonight. What about that? Yeah yeah well the only issue though is right you have seven thousand hotels and you talk about you. Know you haven't been bond void nearly as frequently as maybe you are back in the day when the merger what's happening but how hotels how consistent are hotels in delivering your early benefits by upgrade. That might be a problem but in fairness I I wasn't getting the day of complimentary sweet grades frequently with high at either right but I also have four certificates that can use to confirm upgrades and each up to seven eight. Yeah exactly and we're talking about standard suites at top Tier Properties Park. Hyatt's we can go onto battle. Who has the most luxurious hotels? But I'm going to be staying in a suite and most likely as a platinum. You probably are. Well you're right however I travel with two kids so there's four of us in a room. A suite actually isn't useful anymore. It was there was a period of time where sweets were the ultimate and that is when I was a high at globalist or diamond at the time but now sweetshop one bed and then some light crummy sofa pullout so if you need a sweet you know maybe hired is a good thing to focus on for for that period of time in your life. But I'm at a time. Any beds in a room and so sweet upgrade for me is is useless most of the time. I'd rather have an awesome hotel exactly where I want it to beat beat and a few hundred more square feet most of the time speaking of upgrades one of the things about Hilton diamond status. That a lot of people complain about is that so you don't get confirmed upgrades. It's at the discretion of each individual property. Correct that's correct. I will say even though I don't have confirmed sweet upgrades. I have played in large large number of nights and home properties across the world and I've gotten upgraded on sweets on awards days on page days. Basically it's just the US. I think where you're shafted in terms of the sweet upgrades but everywhere else and the rest of the world you're getting in but you think that Hilton is at a slight disadvantage. Because of that because of these other chains that maybe do confirm Swede upgrades think it just depends on what your priorities are in the same in the same way that summer says I'd rather have a reliable quality hotel all across the world. And maybe I'll have a suite upgrade. Maybe I won't but I at least know that I'm going to have key benefits. It's available to me at a high quality level and on the flip side as far as earning top tier status. It's probably easiest with help. I'm just going to go ahead and just throughout throughout that Hilton aspire card because everyone else is just you guys have no game You know interest in terms of light barrier to entry to top Tier Diamond Status Status or top Jerry Lee Status Hilton. Has Everybody beat all you need to do his own one credit card right so with Hilton. You don't have to choose to focus all your stays on Hilton.

"Goals they ask your seon say and his best friend and like Alice just the way she is? Oh we don't accept that. Yeah it's like well if that's just the way she is then like okay then. Also what are you doing on advocation together. Yeah no more of that. I need to talk about this more. Can you imagine a vacation supposed to relax. When you have this person with you I I would never be able to close my eyes for a second multiple? Here's the other thing lips blowing my mind like I know I had to talk touch on this in the beginning but multiple vacations hanging out multiple times a month like to live in the same building building like what's happening. Yeah nothing horrifies. Tournai more than multiple hangouts horrifies me more than you joining your life okay so it feels like this asker is joining her life with this beyond say in. This fiancee is not really giving any ground. Oh my God again we could be totally off. And I'm just just using my Ba- past history to think about this but it's just kind of like your fiance is marrying you and making you hang out with his best friend all the time and his horrible horrible partner. Yeah sounds like a nightmare is you. And you said it's his best friend not our best friend. Yeah it's my partner and I have a lot of the same best friends and that is not what you said. No that's a you friend. That's that's a that's a friend up alongside your fiancee. That does not belong to you. I just feel like and I'm just GONNA I'll say it. I think that Tallahassee he's like overbearing nature or whatever is actually the smallest component of this. Oh my God do you think they buried the lead. Oh I think you're totally right all the time and again ask her. Please write a SPEC because I want to know if this if I'm if I'm onto something here but like it seems rotten at the core that you can't can't choose to who to hang out with a maybe because we're such introverts you know you and there are people who extrovert who hang out with people. They don't even like because that's how they live. Well oh I see my group of friends probably every weekend and I think that would be that. Seems like a lot for an introvert. So you see your friends every weekend. But they're your friend one hundred percent yes exactly. It's taught her group friendship. Yes yes that's exactly it why you always hanging out with his friends. We're your friends man. You might be really honest here trained and I hope you're wrong wrong too. I Oh so this is what I hope what I hope is that Tallahassee is just jealous and the asker asker will say I I do WanNa do better if you can tell me something concrete and then Tallahassee will say you know I can't think of it it's just that I'm insecure and then it solved. That's what I hope you'll. Here's what I think it is. I think that this asker is in this relationship with dude who has a significant bromance and he's is putting this significant bromance. He's bed he's been my friends like fifteen years babe. We were in the same fred big. I'm going to hang out with him whenever I want bed. If you WANNA WANNA get us some beers could you do that babe. That's I'm picturing this. And then you and this person you're like going on these hiking tricks trips in Costa Rica with your fiance's and she's she's like Oh my God you don't yeah. I can't believe you better vacation with this person. Oh I can count on two fingers. Friends friends that I've been on vacations with Prince. I run a vacations with. Yeah St- to yeah to yeah multiple and I liked them and I made the choice choice to hang out with them all man I mean you. Okay here's what it is though you need some more agency in this entire social jen cracked it. Yes that's one of this. She sounds like she has no choice. Yeah how do I cut ties. How do I create boundaries? How do I not create awkwardness? Those are all things you asked us. I don't think this job is yours. Yeah Yeah I don't think it is because you're not the friendship glue your fiance is get your fiance needs. If he are fiance needs you to hang out with his best friend and his best friends partner than he needs to make this. Okay yeah exactly. Like what is he done to make this easier on you. What does he done to make this easier on you and again it could be totally wrong? Maybe you think the bro best friend is wonderful. We'd hang out with him one on one with or without your fiancee and to be clear your fiance could be fucking awesome generous and kind and and lovely and be making this bucket and be making this fuck up. I mean that's that's what like relationships are. It's what marriage is like. You're GonNa let you're going to be like then. They might hum by never occurred to him that like he could help you with this right. Yeah I'm probably not to be honest with you. Like like men really understand that. They're the role in something so in conclusion. If it's just between you and Tallahassee I think you just need to make some space between the two of you wait it out. Maybe there's maybe she's got some thorn in her pod that she doesn't understand if it's tallahassee and the whole Tallahassee versus the world the one thing that you could do to make this easier on yourself is to take her motions as seriously as you should which is not very seriously because if you're constantly stepping all over her feelings In ways that are not obvious that means that she has a lot of triggers. And you need to either ask her for her specific triggers. You don't do it again or you just have to say sorry whoops by Oh Shit Oh mistakes are right and of sentence and then the last bit of this is like whole boy. Let's talk to this fiancee and reconsider. Consider how much time you're spending with this couple that you dislike. Where are the redeeming qualities? The only reason that you want to repair this whole thing is because it would make make your fiancee's life easier which that's a wonderful instinct to have for a partner but is it worth it. 'cause it's this is exhausting Chen. That was so good. The only person who wins in this situation if you solve it is your fiance. Yeah you don't win by having good boundaries and a good like report with this woman. You don't like her. Yeah trying to be friends. Yeah Yeah I mean you wouldn't ask your your fiancee to make friends with someone. They didn't like that doesn't that doesn't make that doesn't make sense. I need to know more. Yeah and again. I know we who. Yeah we gave. You want to think about. Yeah we we have some potential truth. Bombs comes on us and we. We dropped our heavy opinions on us. What we did?

That was that's an actual bridge an actual bridge and an actual river. I'm not sure the the name of the river was even in the song. Yeah. In any event. I'm along the banks of the coach echo river, which is not quite as dramatic or or legendary. But nevertheless is mine. And so I'm fond of it. I'm here in our. Virtual hanger talking with two of my very very good friends come into some. I don't know whether you're near the Tallahassee bridge or not. But which talk Kansas is the is the air capital of the world. And that's where Dave Higgins right now. Hi, David what's going on with you? Well, I am within a block of three bridges over the little Arkansas' river, which would be the little Arkansas river in forty nine other states. I understand by by our Kansas. But yeah, okay. Yeah. We got a bright sunny, shiny, David. We've had off and on precept. So to the trees are starting to but out, and it's nice. We're getting temps in the sixties during the day and thirties at night. Yeah. That's nice. It's maple maple syrup season. Then right and happy spring spring started yesterday yesterday. I know when I first looked at the calendar, I thought oh, cool. We'll do the this episode on the first day of spring because it's the twenty first of March. But this is one of those years when the first day of spring isn't the twenty-first it's the twentieth. So yes, this is one of those days where daylight and dark or equal. Yeah. What an actually I, you know, it's one of those funny things apparently the the. The threshold where we passed beyond twelve hours of light. All right was on the eighteenth or nineteenth. It's one of these weird. You know, having sunrise sunrise, sunrise sunset things that that it doesn't that that passing of that threshold that milestone doesn't happen on the first day of spring. It can happen a day or two before for some strange reason. But whenever it happened. It's happened. And that's a good thing. Because I just you know, as much as I love the fall, which is a some ways my favorite season. I'm I'm always put in a good mood this time of year. And it's like the winters clearly going away. The days are getting longer the trees are budding quite as much here as David describes. But and so I like this time of year, and it's obviously nice in which ties. Well, david.

"The ability for actual working class people to get their hands on desperately needed supplies, which is where we came in. And we're trying to actually put people in touch with either networks organizations or more specifically trying to just simply put supplies into people's hands. So that they could go home and. Give water to their children or to put food on the table for their families at one point. I was in blunts town with like fifty hot pizzas that have been donated by a good friend of ours who is running for city commission here in Tallahassee, and I was I just I drove down to the poorest neighborhood that I knew oven blunts town. Just started handing these pizzas out to families. And a cop pulled up on me ask for pizza, and then proceeded to tell me that I was making a big mistake by handing these hot pieces out to the folks in this community because all they were doing all they were doing was sitting around at their houses waiting for people to to hand them things that they needed on that I should my time in my pizza would be better spent given to the relief workers in the linemen and the law enforcement officers downtown, so it's just little things like this perspectives. Like this that perpetuate that type of thing. And meanwhile, the public in any small towns are all working together we saw people cleaning out their refrigerators rest. Cleaning out their refrigerators coming to the center of town and cooking over fires and on grills and just handing the food out for free. You know, because it was going to go bad anyways. So that's the word to be the real deficit of state aid comes in. It's the most vulnerable communities are either Illinois eligible to receive it or are reluctant to seek it. Yeah. So it sounds like what you're really seeing is that the we're there was state aid. It was you know, being used either explicitly four in tandem with flexing of state muzzle. Terms of sorting out who in who is not worthy of the pizzas of community. Just one of the thing that I wanted to add on the initial relief work that we were doing just besides like loading, trucks and trucks full of everyday goods that people are going to need to to say healthy and safe was through the Florida people's advocacy centre. We got plugged in with an organization that was focusing on providing relief. For two undocumented folks in a small town in Quincy, which is in Gadsden county. Just kind of north west to Tallahassee and we went over there. We were giving supplies. They started to trust us. They, you know, it's pretty amazing because a lot of these areas there, it's very conservative and on any other day. They would have an issue with anyone calling themselves. Socialist they welcoming us with open arms. We actually able to go to some of these people's houses who are undocumented and where migrant workers and help them put tarps on their roofs and things like this, which we're like soot which was so important in the days just after the storm because it didn't it actually didn't rain for about a week after the storm passed so we had a little bit of time to help some of those people really protect their homes and their livelihoods so in the it's now about a month out after the storm. It sounds like some of the initial work that you're doing is, you know, a little kind of like bailing out of boat of just doing what you can where you can to help things out has. This coalesced into more, you know, organized work to kind of target more effort at at certain places or you still kind of going around in spot buy spot do giving aid where you can. Yeah. As I mentioned earlier, the universalist unitarian church is where folks in mutual with mutual aid is actually for doing organizing in Panama City, Panama City is far to the west of us about two and a half hours west of where we're sitting right now, it's that region is still ravaged it still looks just tragic I drove a comrade up there last week..

Bowl. I'm a number of the Tallahassee assay member of the libertarian socialist caucus member of mutually disaster relief. Yeah. So let's start off by talking a little bit about the storm itself. Can you kind of describe what it looked like on the ground there? And what the immediate aftermath was in terms of destruction, and what you were dealing with in a community basis. Yes. So Tallahassee was largely unscathed by the storm. We had a lot of down trees. And most of the city was without power for several days. That's not unusual in this area. The storm really of any significant size comes through you experience those types of things, but the communities just to the west and south of us were hit extremely hard. And it's incredible. It looks like nothing that I've ever seen before complete forest tipped over houses. Just obliterated. These folks lost everything. Yeah. And you you said that the city were the the worst of the storm hit Mexico's beaches, basically, not there anymore. Yes. A Mexican beaches completely destroyed. I think it was like one house that had been built for the times that had that had survived other than that. It was a complete loss. They've actually evacuated everyone from Mexico beach in they're slowly letting people come back to assess their property damages and things like that. But the town itself is is no longer considered a town and is a complete loss. I think I saw the picture of the you know, that one house that remained and just everything around it. It's just a field of of desiccated. Boards and stuff. Mexico beach is largely kind of like a not a resort town. But an area where many people own second homes and go there today -cation into enjoy the beach. However, there are many poor families that live there in the towns around Mexico beach are widely impoverished these people did not have anything before the storm and after an event like this. They're left with nothing in many times, not even given the resources on how to start to rebuild yet. So I I'm assuming that after a town like that is destroyed most of the people who don't take and holds homes just kind of abandoned the area and whoever's left there is kind of left to deal with the complete void of infrastructure. Yeah. And unfortunately, the folks who have the have the have the means and did on second homes down there. They're the first ones to apply for, you know, those FEMA grants, and the people who really need them in some of these smaller communities that are less affluent aren't always giving the resources to apply for this types of things. And you know, it's. If you don't know where to start you're not going to start. And so it's not gonna come for a lot of wealthy, folks. It was let's lead insurance other. But thousands of people lost literally every day. Could you tell me a little bit about what kind of advanced preparation will kind of organizational work, Tallahassee DSL was doing to get ready for this kind of thing. All to be totally honest. A lot of the Tallahassee DASA response was very spontaneous. But mutually disaster-relief, which is the organism action that I do organizing worth do organizing with is this is their this is their thing. They were involved when hurricane Michael came through and hurricane Irma. Hurricane Maria that went to Puerto Rico multiple times installed solar. And so win the hurricane Michael rolled through mutually disaster-relief. Folks were ready and willing to participate in to help in the aid of folks in affected communities there..
