Adrian, one of the things I really enjoyed in your book was that you talked about when a call out can be useful. You say, call outs can feel most powerful when they are used with their tactical intention for those with less positional political economic or other power to demand accountability to stop harm or abuse. Which I appreciate and I think you laid that out perfectly with the way that you were talking about R. Kelly. How do we make the distinction between call out cancellation and consequences? Because I hear all three of them being used interchangeably, especially in media, and especially by people who are trying to get themselves out of consequences. Oh, I love it. I think we're still in the birthing stages of figuring out what all these things are. And that's why people are like, it's a whole culture of this. It's a whole culture of them. I'm like, yes, this is in the culture. You know, we are in some ways cancellation is in the culture, right? And the culture is steeped in a punitive culture. So it's like cancellation is just the peak of a certain kind of wave that's happening in the culture. But it's not the only thing that's happening in the culture. And I think what we actually need is an accountability culture or a culture of consequences, where it's like, oh, it's true that you actually did this thing. We know that it's true. And here's something. Here's what a consequence can actually look like. When I think of a call out, the call out functions as an isolating tool instead of a tool of community. And I think that's where when some people use the term call in. The idea is like it's actually supposed to be bringing people deeper into community into a space where they can actually be held versus something where it's like we actually don't want this person to have access to community. I think a consequence, though, to me, a consequence is when it's like, oh, I can draw a direct line. I really can see this consequence makes sense based on what happened. You know what this person did. And I think a lot of times what we're missing is, there's no veracity around what actually happened. We don't know, right? And then there's no clarity on what is the consequence? Is it taking one year out of the spotlight? You know, is it taking a year off of Instagram or whatever? Because that's about what I've been noticing as the patterns. People kind of dip out for a year. And then you see them come back like everything's great, you know? Yeah, yeah, yeah. We don't talk about that other thing. Yeah, we don't, you know? And a lot of and they just move on. So I'm like, we need I'm always interested in what actually works. If that strategy worked, you know, if it was like, dang. We called these people out and rape just stopped. Like, isn't that happening anymore? This really worked. You know, Miriam kaba is someone that I always point people towards. She is an incredible teacher around abolition, particularly prison abolition. And she really talks about that long pattern of harm doing continues in spite of this system of punitive justice, you know, in spite of all those efforts. And she's like, we should just be focused on how we end the harm. That's the only measure. Did the harm end or did it not end? And I think that helps in a lot of these conversations because people get into some moral high ground space, and I'm like, it's not working. You know? Fundamentally, it's not working. So it can't be the right way. I can talk about this with you for. Or is I really appreciate you writing this book. Adrian rebrand. Thank you so much for being with us today.

"Slack joining me now is Sharon viniq a partner at the levy vinegar Pharrell Williams Law Firm in Oakland, California Sharon. Thanks for joining me. Thank you for having me. The Jeffrey toobin incident is relatively extreme when we think about examples of harassment, but what else can digital workplace harassment look like off since people are sitting in their home. We have all kinds of things that can happen. You can have a spouse who walks by without a shirt on you can have items on someone's wall behind them or on their desks. That would be inappropriate in the workspace. And then of course, you have the extreme incidents like the tube an incident that you just talked about now, how much control I mean dog? Should someone be able to or can someone have about those examples that you just laid out? For example, you know someone walks past the the back the behind you and zoom and they don't have a shirt on is that the fault of the person who's on the call or is that just something that happens to happen because we're in this work from home world that's new to all of us. That's the fault of the person who's on the call the same page of laws and rules and regulations that apply in an actual workplace applied to the virtual workplace and lots of companies already have policies that cover these sorts of issues home and they applied to this new world that we're living in. Yes. They do apply to this world that we're living in because you're still at work and you're still exposing your colleagues to the same type of conduct any conduct that would be illegal in the workplace has illegal in the remote workplace because the key here is it's still a work place now in the case of Jeffrey toobin. He says that he thought he dead. Turned his camera off on that Zoom call lots of you know, I wasn't there but do excuses like that make it easier for people who are committing misconduct to sort of Get Off The Hook em. Well, it certainly didn't make it easier for two but he was suspended if I was advising an employee and keep in mind that I I advise employees not employers. If I was in phising an employee, I would tell them that they could have a claim based on that and I think employers would be quite concerned. How would that work though, Susan? The way that it would work is that there would be a complaint made by somebody else that was on call there would be an investigation and then there would be action taken in the same way that it would happen in the actual workplace. So if something how do people approach handling harassment and misconduct when it happens virtually, I mean in a traditional office setting you would make I guess make an appointment with your Human Resources representative to talk about this or talk to your boss in a closed-door meeting. Maybe how do you do that? Now you would do exactly the same thing presumably you would send an email or text message depending upon how you communicate to either your boss or the HR person and then you would make a complaint the same way you would do it if you were sitting in someone's office with the door closed. From a legal standpoint. Is it harder for a plaintiff to make their case when harassment is occurring online rather than in person? I think in some cases it could be significantly easier to make a complaint to change upon the nature of the harassment if it's an email or a slack message you actually have documentary evidence that it happened if it's in a zoom meeting where there are multiple people on the call, there would be Witnesses of what happened and that's very different than what often happens in the workplace setting where it's just one-on-one harassment. If it is just a meeting between you and the harasser it would be exactly the same as if it happened in the the physical office. Now we're talking off in about like the some of the examples we gave her people in their own homes and what people their colleagues might witness through their job, but what about among colleagues? On Zuma balls are in slack. Like how does harassment play out there? Like what happened with Jeffrey toobin? That would be exactly the same as if it were in the office if you were for example in a meeting and you pulled out your penis that would obviously not be appropriate. It's not appropriate to do it during a zoom call either wondering whether or not companies are updating their codes of conduct to include more specific language around things like zoom and slack I've spoken with some of my colleagues on the defense side of the bar and it really depends upon what the existing policy said most existing policies already talked about email and electronic communications, but certainly I would think in the last week companies would be quick to add zoom and slack off as the ever-evolving landscape has indicated that people need to be reminded that that's the same as sitting in the office. We are of course in unprecedented times to use a word that we've been using an unprecedented amount of times quite frankly, but we are also in the middle of an economic downturn. Lots of people have lost their jobs as a result of this pandemic and I would imagine that people might including one of our listeners who said that they sort of deal with this in the same way that they dealt with it in the before times says, you know quote same way as in person laugh it off. Hope it doesn't happen again. Are you hearing more people who are saying, you know, I think something weird happened. Don't really want to bring it up. I'm scared to lose my job. Now. I've been practicing law for quite some time. And I think that these downtimes are just like any other down times when somebody's been home rest, whether it's sexual or racial harassment and they still have their job. They're generally reluctant to complain where they've been harassed and then they're terminated for some Undead. Added reason or they're terminated because they complained about the harassment. They are more likely to go forward because finding a new job is very difficult. Are there other ways that employers can be proactive about protecting employees from harassment in the work from home environment where in some instances Shore there may be other folks who are on that same Zoom call, but in other instances, they could be just a one-on-one interaction. Well, I think that employers are probably going to make sure that they continue whatever legally mandated training there is here in California. We have all kinds of wage laws that require that people have semi annual training. I think that employers are probably going to be proactive about reminding people that their obligations regarding non harassment and no discrimination continued even if you're in a virtual setting and should is there anything specific that people should be paying attention to about their own behavior? Yeah. I think that when you birth Sitting at your desk, whether it's remote or actual you should look around and see what's behind you and that you should try to treat your home office the same way you treat your office in a building there that could get dressed up in fancy and go to work every single day. Even if some people are working from their kitchen tables, correct, and lots of people are working from their kitchen table, but better to work from your kitchen table than sitting in your bed naked here from Sharon vinik partner at Levy viniq barrel and Himes in Oakland, California Sharon.

"Coronavirus cases are rising again Nationwide and it's not just big cities that are struggling in the most recent Spike that began sort of at the beginning of September. It's rural areas by and large that have been hit the hardest. I'm tanzina Vega and today on the take-away for Wednesday, October 28th how hospitals are stretched thin from a third wave of the coronavirus wage plus Minneapolis promise police reform in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, but concrete change has been harder to arrive at one councilmember said they were going to abolish our current Minneapolis Police System Song. Another sad this council is going to dismantle the police department. Another said our commitment is to end the city's toxic relationship with Minneapolis Police Department. Also how incarcerated people are viewing this political moment in history and how workplace harassment can still take place even when you're working from home. But first hospital stretched thin health care workers overwhelmed and too few resources. Those were the stories dominating the headlines a girly months of the pandemic and now once again, that's what we're hearing from some Hospitals and Clinics across the country with many others close behind covid-19 numbers are rising dramatically Nationwide with more than fifty states reporting cases at or close to record levels translating into more people being hospitalized. I'm joined Now by Frank lovecchio professor of emergency medicine at the University of Arizona and Dan Goldberg a healthcare reporter at Politico. Welcome to you both. Thank you so much for having me Frank. The last time we spoke you were painting a picture of an overwhelmed hospital system in a zoning because of rising Kovac cases. Where do things stand today today in Arizona were at a much better spot. Our ICU cases are about two hundred or so during the peak was about nine hundred seventy wage. About 85% used at that time and we've dropped substantially. We are seeing numbers down the wrong direction though with positivity rates admission rates. We are seeing good things though. People are staying home and when people stay home when they are sick Etc, they get evaluated by electronic visits Etc tends to be a little bit better for us because we don't see the burden in the hospital wage. We are just at the beginning and things are going to get worse Frank what are some lessons that you've learned over the past six months in working with patients and with having this virus that you're applying today. It's just a question and what we've learned is there's not much we can do for it we can talk about drugs we can talk about supportive care in the end oxygen help but if you don't need oxygen, there's not many reasons keep in the hospital if you other sicknesses are in check, for example, your diabetes your hot your blood pressure. There's not much we can do for you. So we try to push people at home. People are getting a job. Oximetry even in an underserved Hospital like mine and if the levels drop would telling the patience to come back never if somebody's oxygen saturation was under 9,000 what we tell him to stay at home. Now. We're telling them go what eighty-five eighty-six percent oxygen content something. Typically that was an automatic stay in the hospital people 100,000 and much more. You know, I think it's because they are able to breathe. We realize that the are moving out is not as big as a problem getting them oxygen is a little bit more of an issue much different than things like pneumonia or other things that affect your brain that cause you to stop breathing as well. It's it's a new disease. We're learning new things every day and just want to make sure in terms of PPE ventilators resources. Are you all feeling like you have what you need as you mentioned should cases begin to Peak even more in the state. You know, we're at our Peak we would hit pretty hard and nobody came in for other diseases right now because surgeries are open and other patients are still trickling in I think I could be a stress to the system. But as we sit today, we're in great spot. Unfortunately around the country. That's not the case where you know, you see places like Illinois are getting Thirty-One thousand new cases, you know, that's higher than any any state in the country except for Texas for example there and let's bring you in here Healthcare reporter for Politico. Give us a sense of how much of a rise we're seeing in hospitalizations around the country to Frank's Point. Well right now there are over forty four thousand patients in hospitals and just to give you some perspective at the beginning of the month. There were only about 30,000. So we're up about 33% in the last four weeks. This is the most number of people we've seen in hospitals since the summer surge that you know started to that peaked in in July birth. You know really started to come down at the end of August. So things are really bad around the country and and unlike in the spring which was really tart which is really focused in the Northeast and the summer which was really focused in the South West Palm this fall surge that we're seeing is much more uniform. It's pretty much everywhere, Utah, Texas, Idaho The Dakotas, Wisconsin, they're all having capacity issues at the brake pedals Dan. One of the big concerns back in the spring was hospitals having to make decisions about rationing care. Are you seeing that playing out differently now than it was in the spring or or hospitals still being forced to make difficult choices about who gets care sort of two Frank's Point not necessarily who get scared, but how much hospitalization time people have and need to have a great now. Unfortunately, yes. We are seeing that, you know, Utah has has made that announcement that they have begun to start rationing care and we should you know, explain exactly what we mean by rational thought. Because sometimes you know people get the sense that it means you're left out on the street, but there are tons of little decisions made along the way that amounts to rationing care even things like staying home when your a levels are at 85 as opposed to what we would normally do and bring you into the hospital in Idaho. For example, they have closed a pediatric unit to turn it into a Cove in unit. Now that unit wasn't necessarily fall. But that means if there is a pediatric case that would have gone to that hospital. Now, they're being diverted somewhere else, you know, when a hospital closes. It's cardiac unit and turns it into a Cove Indian it that's rationing care off and like I said, unfortunately we are seeing more and more hospitals, especially in the Midwest and the plain states having to make decisions like that Frank. Does that sound familiar? Oh absolutely. If you walk into a hospital today as opposed to a year ago. It is much different areas are never hospital beds are now covideo nest and pediatric places are moved all over to different spots at the hospital because this is not a dog Kids as much as adults in other words the kids might get sick but not as severe as adults. So we're taking those hospital beds and using them as adult beds. Yeah, the hospital looks much different than we use outside before people walk in. We're we're lucky in California and Arizona because we have good weather what people can kind of wait outside but not the appropriate waiting room that you would normally have and and Frank back in the spring when we spoke. You were asking people to wear masks follow social distancing have the has the public listened not all states. If you look at the rates of people who wear masks et cetera. It's much more prevalent people that are over sixty hand washing as much more prevalent social distancing and avoiding crowds as much more prevalent those over 60 in those under Twenty-One, especially, you know beans et cetera. I don't want to say it's non-existent, but it does not go as well. They don't tend to get a six so they don't really see the disease as a problem. If you look at a state like Dakota which month For unclear reasons. They are the highest date of not wearing Mass. Their rate is 105 patients getting covid-19 out of a hundred thousand people whereas the rest of the country is about ten a.

"The oath that I have suddenly taken tonight means at its core that I will do my job without any fear or favor and that I would not do so independently of both the political branches and of my own preferences. Last night Amy Coney Barrett became the 9th United States Supreme Court Justice in one of the most partisan displays of power. We have witnessed in the past few decades Republicans use their political majority to force Barracks confirmation before election day. So far sixty million votes have already been cast in the 2020 election embarrassed nomination process was one of the fastest ever for Supreme Court nominee lasting a little more than a month after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Barrett answered less than 20% of the questions posed to her during her sneering leaving many Americans unclear about how the new Justice might lean and frustrating Democrats who remember how President Obama scotus nominee Merrick Garland wasn't even granted a hearing the current team was the culmination of nearly four Decades of work on reshaping the court Mitch McConnell starkly said this on Sunday a lot of what we've done over the last four years would be undone. gamer later by the next election won't be able to do much about this. for a long time to come while Republicans bask in the glory of their third Supreme Court Justice in less than four years millions of Americans continue to face eviction hunger unemployment and a third wave of coronavirus off sections and Congress remains deadlocked on a stimulus package. I'm tanzina Vega. This is the takeaway and that's where we start today with the new supreme court and how it has changed for the foreseeable future may join.

"Powerful a sacred a lot of the popular culture around which is especially as we are right here on the fringes of Halloween are you know, very white we're looking at Sabrina the Teenage Witch Hocus Pocus even Wicked on Broadway in Griselda what happens when a lot of our imagery about which is is & Brewhouse 2 a.m. Next tent is really focused on whiteness. Yeah, very important question. I think that at this ways a lot of people of color from identifying with these paths and traditions because we don't see ourselves in them. I never saw myself in this imagery of the which until you know, I started doing my own research and looking deeper into different facts and realizing like oh so it wasn't just European women that were persecuted during, you know, the Inquisition and four or five hundred years of these campaigns terrorized women and and working poor people, you know, because then these techniques that European men were enforcing an acting on their own women were brought to the so-called new world and we're fine-tuned on the backs of indigenous and African people women in particular. So there's a whole history that then gets overlooked before we go and jump into Salem right song. History is the history that brew has of color which is of color are reclaiming because not only is it about stories of people of women that were violated persecuted and Mash song and their legacy hasn't been reclaimed. But there's magic in that I think it's important that my sister and I have this platform and so many other brown and black blue has and which is because we're tapping into an energy that's very Cosmic and it's very Universal but a lot of the practices that which is of all colors and backgrounds are practicing and reclaiming today are actually house embody by people of color by communities of color indigenous people African people their legacies, their Traditions are being reclaimed in a beautiful way, but they're mostly embodied by white bodies and Pam. What about you? What are some of the stigmas or misconceptions about witches and Witchcraft today? well, a lot of them route back to the 14th century when women primarily were being accused of being witches, you know by by the Catholic church at the time and so the association of women as being lascivious or evil having some malevolent power and being in League with the devil, you know, having some kind of demonic power is something that was part of a very intentional propaganda campaign that then I'll start the witch hunts throughout Western Europe and later in the New England colonies, you know from the 14th through 17th centuries, so that stigma is unfortunately he's still with us and it really speaks to our fear of powerful women or women who seem to be an aberration somehow, you know sometimes wage Women were accused of being witches because they owned a land or they were older. They didn't have children or didn't have enough children. It still is a word that is used today to shame and silence women for those of us who aren't witches or blue house. I'd like to ask both of you. Is there a way that some of us can bring some magic into our own lives, especially in such a difficult difficult moment for so many people Pam all human beings can benefit from ritual and from trying to connect with something that is greater than ourselves. You know, I call it capital S Spirit some people call it God some people call it many gods whatever your Paradigm is that resonates with you. I think doing some actual physical activity whether it's lighting a candle or setting out some beautiful. Flowers or some kind of offering to that greater spirit and then really mindfully putting out intentions and blessings for the most vulnerable Among Us is a lovely practice that someone can do regardless of their faith or religious beliefs because this world really really needs those blessings and Thursday really needs us to all set our intentions to mindfully and actively transform the world to a place that is just and compassionate and healthy for everybody Griselda. What about you? How can people bring some magic to their lives in such a difficult time finding the sacred and the mundane is a magical practice that can really enhance moja that can really increase positivity that can really uplift our outlook on life. It's finding the things that you do daily like washing dishes wage. Taking a shower or engaging with your children and making that a magical ritual practice and that means presence because you get to appreciate the running water and washing dishes you get to appreciate the raw in a child in the process of learning and the most difficult but the most rewarding aspect of this little bit of magic that I'm imparting is being able to stay present and finding the sacred and the mundane in the most difficult moments.
