"I you know what. I'm excited to see the conversation. Get louder sure. It's the same messaging. Nothing's new it's just that it like it. Either you get like a new audience. Who here is it or sometimes people have been hearing the same words for years but finally they understand it or it affects them in a certain way. Sometimes it takes people having a baby or a life change and then they're like wait. Whoa i realized. I need to like i wasn't happy before I just think that it keeps getting louder. And it's definitely something that has started on social media and then gets implemented into real life from the noise that's made on social media because this is not a movement that's coming from corporations down. Yeah will you have your your make my size movement where you try on the largest size from retailers that don't have an extended size range and you like take a photo of yourself in it and how poorly barely got that backup you get it. Because i'm just saying that a lot of people recap that and it's usually wrong and at i'm just saying yeah. You really got it. But you're like putting pressure on these companies to extend their size ranges in a lot of cases. It's actually happening. Yeah we wanted to get an update like have there been any big wins. Like we'll ask. Do you know what i find. Interesting is actually a lot of not a lot but some there have been some friends that are launching extended sizing put like in secret. What do you mean like. I don't know how to pronounce. thank you. Stout they launch up to three x which is like a really big deal for a brand like like that like they'd go up to a size ten so they just launched this up to size acts but i or three x. But i haven't seen it anywhere. Like i haven't seen they didn't do like applies gifting. There's no one on their instagram. It's not sold on like shop. The it's just it's a secret. So i'm like it's interesting to watch brands do it that way because i'm like what are you expected to happen here. That's so strange. Yes and then. You've got like draper james. That's a good example of someone who's launched extended sizing jonah consistently keeps doing it. Well so there's there's there's a lot of winds that have happened. Tanya taylor keeps during a consistently I'm veronica beards. My favorite brand to wear. I think that there's a lot of there's been a lot of movement in retail amend. There's been some steps back when loft discontinued all of their plus but they also having like a major retail struggle because of cogan. So there's there's a couple there it's kind of one step forward two steps back a little bit. Who's the top of your dream last to make your size. I love zimmerman. i hate love shack fans. Say like as a brand. But i do love their yeah zimmerman. I feel like all of the australian brands are cut also very good so oh yeah yeah that rick's obama did target wait. Did you guys shop the the target designer collections. No i don't have a local target and oh no. I ordered mine online addresses and they fit perfectly. Oh what did you get. Yeah i got the green Like high low dress with the big giant leaves. And then i got the blue like brush stroke print dress like flares out and has like a v-neck. I found that the sizing was great. I am. I found that the quality was good like my package arrived in two dresses in it and it was so heavy i was like this is a lot of fabric and like a really high quality dress. Did you get. I got there. I got a rick so dress elegant shore. It's like a mini dress with some sleeves and buttons down the front and it has flowers on it and like that's an example of a brand that i would love to make my size and i hope that they take this data data. Yeah right and they see that they that they have a customer. Yes because i think the plus sizes were sold out for like most of the items. Yeah they were. Yeah but but yes i. It's interesting because a brand like love shack. Fancy did do this. Exact thing with target last year then didn't do a launch into extended sizes so interest. Why does yeah. I don't know yeah. I feel from talking to learn chan. Who has also been a podcast guest. There is like in the corporate world. There's like this mentality that plus size women don't want to invest including because they want. They think that they're going to be you. Know like becoming a smaller size of the invest in the interim. But it's like when we did. I i worked with her on heading prelaunch in like when we did focus groups like. That's absolutely not true. Like i don't know where that's coming from. What's interesting is. I do think that there. I think that that is true. To an extent there is. That's not a false narrative completely but it's not one that should be upheld and i also think that there weren't really nice options for bigger women. He added four. I feel like it was kind of. If i'm being honest i kind of feel it with co ed where i'm like. Oh like i gained ten pounds dirt kobe. That like i'm assuming will come off once my life is back to normal but i'm not like invest not not investing in close up just like. Oh you're and rent the runway really hard hitting around the runway. But it's also like i mean i don't wear a lot of body close anyway but i wouldn't buy something. That was super happy console. I changed the size. It wouldn't really matter like all my clothes me no matter what. I just wear like huge addresses. So it's like. Oh i gained fifteen pounds. It's still intrigued by. But i don't actually think will work for me is have you seen framed. Dunham has the genes that fisk sizes. I'm saying i don't think they'll work for me because frame denim tends to be really short for me. Okay and so i think they'll probably be like we're.

"He's a 90 sought arrive, saw it take over neighborhoods and then saw those associated with it. Vilified How is crack able to spread so quickly and invade so many lives? A new documentary suggests follow the money corrupt police took bribes to look the other way and let the dealing continue in black and brown communities. The Reagan administration also looked the other way because it wanted the international traffickers to use the drug money to fight communist regimes in South America. Yet his news coverage of crack was sensationalized. Politicians finally found it in them to get quote tough on crime, but did that help the communities that crack had devastated? Crease funding for drug treatment programs. More community resource is to increase economic opportunity in those neighborhoods. No Got mass incarceration and mandatory minimums Director Stanley Nelson's new documentary tracks The Crack recommend epidemic from the opulence of the early eighties to Iran Contra to just say no toe over policing of black neighborhoods. The film is called crack cocaine, corruption and conspiracy. You can watch it now on Netflix and Stanley Nelson joins us now welcome back to the show, Stanley Thank you so much. Good to be here. You grew up in New York City went to college. You're in the seventies. What do you remember about the crap crack epidemic in the eighties and how it really altered the fabric of the city. And how did you use that knowledge to shape your documentary? Well, you know, anybody that was around, remembers it vividly. I remember. You know, all of a sudden neighborhoods were taken over. I remember. You know, blocks around my house. I live in Harlem that that you couldn't walk down. Remember, distinctly, you know, coming home from a party in a cab. Had three in the morning and pass them by a block in Holland, where there was literally hundreds of people out on the street. Um, you know that that it was kind of a free for all. I remember the kind of rise of crack really Vividly. In the documentary that I think it's so important and unique is that you speak to, you know, in the In the film you speak to academics and journalists. And former users, But you hold a lot of space for former drug dealers. Let's listen to Sampson Styles and Tanya Taylor talk about what it was like to harden themselves to survive. Their lifestyle. It was a war out there. Was shot in my back about it Institute from my spine and it exited my chest. Decided if I was going to die, I wasn't gonna be under white sheet. So I got a got in a cab, and I took myself to the hospital because had I laid that with a smothered to death. As I was bleeding internally and my lungs were filling up. Being in the streets made me very hard. I had the act a certain way and be tough, so nobody would think that they could take advantage of me. Have robbed you of your true self because you become this hard and God 24 7. You can't show any weakness, then it's like what is considered weakness. Laughing. You know, at a joke that you may have rolled over laughing that you just gotta And hold all the rest of that in You may go to a party. You want to dance to the song, But you can't dance because you got other killers looking and they're gonna take that's a weakness, so he's too emotional. That's a clip from crack cocaine, corruption and conspiracy. I'm speaking with its director, Stanley Nelson, Stanley, What would the story been missing? Without these voices? The voices of the dealers? I think you know they have been vilified and that you know, you really see it in the film that they at least start out as being very normal people, you know? Dancing styles, talked about trying to getting a job at McDonald's and not making enough money to cover his bills. You know, he's in high school and his girlfriend's about to have a baby. And all of a sudden, you know they one of his friends, you know, give them some crack to sell. And you know, in 20 minutes, he sold it all and and has made you know hundreds of dollars. Um, you know, I think it at first There was no policing at all. And it was a free for all and so many of the crack people who sold crack and when became crack dealers felt that you know they weren't gonna get busted. You know that that the police went in the neighborhoods and They? That was a way to make money on. You know, there's no industry, no jobs. Um, and I think that that their voices at the kind of humanization Of the people who were involved in the in the trade. You start the film in the eighties or that opulence of the eighties, the nightclub drug culture where you know Wall Street guys are cutting and snorting cocaine with their heavy black credit cards. Openly and almost like, sort of with the rebellions. Reverence. What was it about that scene? How did that scene lead to the beginning? Of the crack industry. Sure in in the in the early eighties, you know, Um uh, you know, through films and TV, you know, um, we we saw kind of cocaine glorified and you know, I remember going to clubs and You know people with different coke in the bathroom that black openly and parties and the bartenders you go find a bartender who was selling coke and you know it. It became kind of Ah, ah, Hip drub drug. You know the drug of the elite. The drug was people with money. You know, Scarface was sticks his head into a pile of coke, you know, and and and all of those kind of things, and at the same time, um there's kind of an influx of cocaine in this country and cocaine because cheaper Which leads to people cooking it up and freebasing Coke, and then it becomes cracked. Have the free basing. It was sort of came into the public's consciousness when Richard Pryor burned himself trying to free base cocaine was a new way for you just to take in cocaine. How did this innovation make its way to cocaine manufacturers? And how did that change the drug economy? Yeah. In the film we interview freeway Rick Ross. You know from l. A who was a incredibly, uh, prolific go crack dealer, and he talks about the fact that You know, freebasing cooking up Coke was a long involved chemical process, you know, and dangerous. A zoo, you know well reflected by Richard Pryor setting himself on fire. And one of the things that he discovered was that you could cook it up in advance. Put it in little vials and sell it already cooked up, and it became Not free basic, but it became called crack, and that's when it really took home. I guess the Stanley Nelson, the name of the documentaries, crack cocaine, cocaine, corruption and conspiracy. In the film. One of your subjects notes that two thirds of crack users were white. Yet we ended up with this notion that cocaine's the drug for white people and crack is the drug for black people and brown people. How did we wind up with that notion? Well, once again, you know, the felling of crack largely took place out in the open and in black, black and brown communities s. Oh, that that that's what that's what we saw. That's what you know. You could say that a news director could say you don't go down and film You know, people using cracker buying crack. I mean, it was right out in the open. And so that's what we saw. And you know, we we talk about people coming from New Jersey and other suburbs into into the inner city to buy crack. So the economy, the open economy became largely associated with black and brown people. Although if you said you know, two thirds of crack users were white..

It's a real life. It's good. It looks like a real old dad and he was weighing the vice. Yeah, he's really cool is being home. He does because disgusting he was home for selling. Conan isn't back yet. But Fallon is still going into the theater and, um, over on Stephen Colbert shows last night. Um Really did. She did not do that much press. We've not really seen Tanya Taylor Joy whose star of the Queen's Campbell, Yes, and people have continued to love that and watch. So who the guest was, and I'm like, I don't even know what these people are. So I didn't watch it. Yeah, and s. So she was really She was really quite delightful. I catch people first became aware of her on this fantasy Syriza called Atlantis. And then she was in this horror movie called the Witch. And then I can't remember. She might have been. And I think she was in Emma, which doesn't make of Emma. And that came out right when the pen right when everything locked down like back in March, and it is available on Netflix and has gotten good reviews. And if you're missing Bridger 10, you might wanna check out Emma and Anya. Is in it right the unrecognizable from the Queen's gambit, but she had kind of a fun chat with Stephen Colbert. So let's listen. Did you know that? It was a sensation? How did you learn that? Suddenly this had caught fire. I mean, honestly, I think I'm still learning it because when I first you know, when the show first came out, I was filming something else in Ireland, and I was barefoot on the side of a mountain in the freezing cold, and I would just come back to my apartment. Men. Any phone would blow up and it would say, Oh, you know, people really liked the show, but it wasn't real for me. I was too isolated. And then when I came back home to London, I went for a walk. With my mask and my Beanie and the amount of people that stopped me from just this. I honestly couldn't believe it, and I think it's it's going to take some time to get used to, but luckily everyone so kind They just really enjoyed the show. And they want to talk about Beth and I am up for that. So yeah, That show is so good. Yeah, really One of the 10. It's finding the right. It's fun hearing your voice, isn't it? Okay. Here she is with can't remember what's next. Did you have any idea that people were gonna be so gripped by the story of a chess master? It seems like an unlikely hit, doesn't it? I mean, I think if I'm being completely honest, when I first read the book, I was so in love with Beth instantly, and I think people follow passion, so I felt impassioned by chest when I finished reading the book. However, that being said, I think there's thinking something will go down well, and then there's the mind boggling numbers that you just you know, just with me, so I don't think any sane person prepares for something like that. His wife That's like over the 50 million people of what kind of a mark and um and then one of the things that became a delight and queen's gambit as you watched it, and as the story unfolds, Is her fashion, the clothes that she were, and it's sixties love. It's amazing. So here here is she talking about her clothes? Everybody loves the period fashion of the show, and I'm old enough to remember when I was new. But those costumes they're so beautiful that you get to wear. Where a Where did you get them where those designed for you or those original vintage? Costumes. It's a combination. I was so lucky to work with the wonderful Gabrielle vendor, and she and I got along house on fire immediately, and we had a very similar way of working where she respected that I was requested Beth that we would put on the clothes and immediately if my body would just Rejected it would be gone, eh? So a lot of them are vintage pieces. And then a lot of them she created with the show particularly in mind. Do you know these air These just lovely Do you get do Keep these Well, this is what's so crazy because God, Bree and I worked so closely together at the end of the show. She just came up to me and said, Honestly, bed they're yours, You know way found them together and You back. The line is very blurry. You should just take them home. And I was overwhelmed by that kindness because I really wanted to keep a bet. Like a bit of Beth with me. However, the show is so successful those clothes they're currently in a museum, so I do not know what I will get my class. That's really if you wore those on the street, I think you might be recognized. Honestly, I've been thinking about this a lot, because obviously they're so beautiful, but I actually cannot wear them outside because people will think I have lost my mind. And I may never hired for another job again. So beautiful costumes will parade around in my room for my own enjoyment. They really are that lovely but my thing with some of that sixties stuff for some of those old Those fabrics are so itchy. I mean, the wool they use so much wool Joy. Oh, I would just be teaching myself crazy. Remember some of my mom's old stuff, and I just it she rolled dressed very for you, do you? I mean, because I was Our girl in the fourth grade in the late sixties, Okay? And I had a mod. Wool dress on and I remembered vividly the top of it was white cream. Yeah, and then from the bus down, it was like a nice mustard. I believe I inherited from my Aunt Janet.

Rocco, I don't even know if kids do those They do, but they're called a CTS now in different grades of school. Yeah, we remember in grade school, filling in the holes with the pencil. You couldn't go the bathroom. And and I remember a night tights on and there was no going to the bathroom. And Mrs Anna said that you know my teacher. She wasn't my beehive teacher. He was the fourth grade teacher a little bit. I don't know what beehive means. Beehive. You're just okay.
