Skin. Shit. Out of me. Anyway coming up tonight, show apple announces a brand new phone Juki. Young white is working the polls and why Donald Trump is threatening to hook up with you. So, let's do this people. Welcome to the daily social distancing show. From, Trevor's couch in. New. York City your couch somewhere in the world. This is the daily social distancing show with Trevor Dome Here's A. Kick things off with the technology news that I'm super excited about today I finally for remote no, that was killing me I was watching a Spanish soccer match right and then my TV was stuck in Spanish. TV. The entire week. I forget what when I blessed by nearly enough Oh and this also happened today apple announced new gadgets apple unveiling. It's highly anticipated I. Phone twelve featuring four new models with five G. Capability Ceramic Shield, and Mac. SAFE wireless charging. They did announce four new iphones. They got the iphone twelve, the iphone twelve many the iphone twelve pro and the iphone twelve pro. Max, a regular iphone twelve and twelve many. We'll come with a thing called safe not let's chargers cases. Other accessories snap onto the back of the vice interestingly to reduce their carbon footprint of the new iphones. When you open an iphone box, there will be no headphones. No chargers inside. You'll go. Apple has done it again you know how many times I've lost my charger but now apple is like you don't got to worry about that no more. got. You. Actually amazing. How so addicted to apple products that will just take whatever they give no charger we'll take it. No ear buds. The iphone thirteen. Will Not come with the phone I, two of them, the big bucks and the smell. No look. I can understand why they getting rid of the headphones. I mean we'll need to be more social that makes sense. But the CIA guys now is the time to have people sharing charges. Wait. How did you get corona? Will you gotta understand my battery was a thirty percent but let's move on to a country that's on the iphone to North Korea. Over the weekend Kim Jong Hoon north, Korean dictator, and wolves most dangerous rectangles hosted the surprise military parade where he showed off his brand new missiles and a brand new side of himself Kim. Jon Apologize For failing to improve. North, Koreans lives in an address at an unprecedented pre-dawn military parade. This came out at the climax of nearly two our military parade in the country's capital the country's leader Kim Joan was seen crying along with those in the crowd thanking the North Korean people for their hard work during the pandemic he got more emotion we've ever seen it looks like he was standing there at the podium sobbing and this went on for quite some time. Wow guys. This is the day. That Kim Jong UN finally became President Honestly Company that Kim Jong. Broke down in tears during a military parade. That's how you know everyone is feeling the pandemic blues, even a murder dictators like you do much. Do Visit Zoo. Background and they. They're back. Although it's really easy to admit your failures as a leader when it's impossible for anyone to replace you mean what people can vote him out. You know it's kind of like when a kidnapper admits that they were wrong I just wish that hadn't happened to both of us both of us, but let's move on from the most famous dictatorship to the one country that never become a dictatorship release the next three weeks the United States of America after RPG's passing president trump and his Republican millions wasted no time nominating Amy Coney Barrett the GOP's final infinity stone to destroy planned parenthood. Now like last year's nominee brick Cavanaugh Barrett has not been accused of sexual assaults or juvenile delinquency or Wait. What was the other thing I liked beer my man. So if you're planning on watching these hearings, please. Don't waste your time. Because over the years, all these hearings have become is each party making big speeches about how the nominees either GonNa Save or destroy the Supreme Court, and then the nominee pretending that they have never had a points of view on anything, for example. It's no secret that any coney Barrett's is against Roe v Wade right? Trump wouldn't have picked otherwise. But if you Oscar about it during the hearing, all of a sudden. She. Doesn't have an opinion. Do you agree with Justice Scalia view that Roe was wrongly decided I think on that question You know. I'm going to invoke Justice Kagan's description which I think is. Perfectly put when she was in her confirmation hearing, she said that she was not going to grade precedent or give it a thumbs up or thumbs down and I think in an area where precedent continues to be pressed litigated as true of Casey it would be particularly would actually be wrong a violation of the canons for me to do that as a sitting judge, it's distressing not to get a straight answer. So let me try. Again do you agree with Justice Scalia view that Roe was wrongly decided again I can't pre commit or say, yes I'm going in with some agenda because I'm not do you agree with Justice Scalia view that row can and should be overturned by the Supreme Court. It's a contentious issue which is I know when reason why it would be comforting to you to have an answer, but I can't express views on cases or pre commit. To approaching a case, any particular way? Democrats spent all day trying to get Barrett's to admit that she wants to overturn Roe v Wade. Basically the whole day was like prolifer says what pardon played an abortion rights for just one example barrack refused to say where she stood on every topic and I'm not picking on her by the way. This is what every Supreme Court nominee does, which almost makes you wonder what the point of these hearings is. Seriously what are we doing? We all know what she's GonNa do. So why do we have to do the whole song and dance as if it's a big mystery? How do you fit? We know how she feels. Like interviewing a toddler to see if they're gonNA misbehave after you leave the room are you going to eat cookie when I leave? I, have no opinions on cookies and are you going to draw on the walls when I leave? I. Don't have any opinions on joining. Well, that works for me. Here's the keys to the House Kid I'll see you in a week. Gives an idea guys. If we know which judges liberal and which conservative. Then one, we changed the rules to reflect that just four judges picked by Democrats, and then four judges pick by conservatives rights, and then the ninth seat could be a guest judge every week like on top chef. Stick with me on this that we will be lot more fair, and also everyone would be a lot more interested in the Supreme Court. Joaquin. Phoenix is on this week I wonder if he'll take away my health care. Oh so exciting and finally voting is now underway in much of the United. States. But if you live in California and you're planning to drop off your ballots had a collection box, you might Wanna read the. Fine print controversy in California after the Republican Party install dozens of their own ballot drop-off boxes at several locations across the state state officials calling them unofficial and illegal though they appear virtually indistinguishable from the boxes sanctioned by the state the California Republican Party, not backing down saying there are no laws. Private drop-off boxes are not permitted will will will will the California GOP put out their own trouble boxes and labeled them as official. Shady as hell you can't say something's official if it's not official I hate it when people do that. You don't like how they say old spices the official deodorant of the NFL I've smelled Patrick Mahomes and he smells like sunshine. which last time I checked is not part of the Old Spice Catalog the deception aside though I don't think it boxes on every corner is actually a bad idea. It should be this easy to vote in America. This should be drop boxes all over the place. You know they. They should be starbucks they should be everywhere and they should also let you take a dump if you need to because otherwise the alternative is what we saw happening in. Georgia just yesterday where people were waiting in line for eleven hours just to vote. And let me tell you something if I'm waiting eleven hours in line. Should I WANNA vote at the end of it I want to be president. All right. I gotta go wait in line for the new iphone I heard this doesn't come with a screen sword flooded.

After a week of being forced to Quarantine Donald. J trump is back on the campaign trail doing what he loves most spreading cove nineteen president trump return of campaign trail rally in. Sanford Florida. It was his rally outside the White House since getting out of the hospital, the president through masks into the audience as he walked onto the stage several members of the first family were in attendance. Many of them did not wear masks including the president himself I went through it. Now they say immune I can feel I feel so our walk into that. Look in their on kiss everyone in that order. I'll kiss the guys in the beautiful women and. Everybody'll just give you a big fat. Yes. My friends. It looks like trump has emerged from his battle with the deadly virus and it's made him Horny as hell. I. Guess It's true. What they say a serious illness can make you realize what's most important in life and also kissing the women and the guys. I'm happy that trump is now biohazard. Curious. That's cool although he may have just lost Mike Pence's votes. This is not the moral example. Should be setting for those kids in cages. Also it's insane. How trump says he'll kiss all the guys but. The beautiful women you ugly chicks I'm out I can deal with corona but Dr Shave butter face could be. Mis- good for trump. I'm glad that he's feeling better. Although I think he's recovery is going to be awful public health I mean how will his support is going to take corona virus? Seriously if it can be beaten by a guy whose body is eighty, three percent chicken nuggets the fact is trump's behavior sets an example for the people around him. And you can see at the rally that people already taken corona a whole lot less seriously governor Rhonda's interest being criticized for his appearance that president trump's rally in Sanford this is the governor of Florida Rhonda Santa's He's at the rally that trump is at right now, and this is his entrance. No mass high five in the crowd. then touching his face with the US to high five man, I know everyone likes to run the scientist choices but I disagree. Of course he's going to high strangers and then smelt their germs. If you're the governor of Florida, then you've got to represent Florida baby i. mean this just shows you how powerful trumpism is. His supporters think that his success is their success. There running around that really like they got over Kobe. We're IMMU. Brave me the like that with everything trump does yeah we got tax cuts baby. Because he got his tax cut, you're unemployed now. Although trump is feeling better, his poll numbers are still in the ICU which is why he's to a bold new ad campaign to convince America that his handling of the pandemic has been as successful as his own personal stereo regime the trump campaign. Now facing pushback from Dr Anthony Fauci, after lifting part of a seven month. Old Sound Bite from. Saudi. For a new AD president trump toppled the virus had on off leaders. By magic that anybody could be doing. The president tweeting. They are indeed Dr Fao Cheese own words and the president's campaign tweeting. It will keep airing the AD. But Dr out she tells NBC News they did this without my permission and my comments were taken out of context to Dr. FAUCI wasn't talking about the president. The quote is from an interview with Fox. News back in March where he was talking about the corona virus, Task Force and its efforts to respond to the pandemic I. Think it's really unfortunate and really disappointing that they did that is take a completely out of context statement and put it in, which is obviously a political campaign ad I thought was really very disappointing. What would you say if I told you I heard that the trump campaign was actually preparing to do another ad featuring you. You know that would be terrible I mean that would be outrageous if they do that. Doctor Fouled. She wanted you done. If, you tell trump not do something he's going to do it even more. So what happens all the time whatever you do Mr President please do not run your businesses while you're in office you mean. No okay. But at least don't host events during pandemic, you mean. There's no but whatever you do don't like their burgers on the white. House. Curtains please. Yummy. No No. The curtains arrival green to be honest. I can't blame them for this I. Mean he did what he had to do. It's not like he's got many doctors dying to endorse him. It was either quote doctor felt she out of context, will bring back this dude. The good news for trump is that all DR FAUCI may not be vouching for his medical expertise. Trump did get a very real endorsement from another top scientist, his son Eric spokesman three times that next. Saturday, the guys sounded hundred percent who was amazing. It actually probably goes to speak to how good some of these vaccines that are being created are in my father's done on the vaccine front no one could have done no-one. Could have done my father literally started day one grading this vaccine he worked pushes vaccine, and now my father just took it and you see how well he got over it Eric Trump talks about his dad the way little children talk about their Dad's my dad invented the corona vaccine and then he took the corona vaccine and now he's the strongest person in the World Oh and clearly eric doesn't understand how vaccines even work. They of the prevention, not the treatment. Like how a condom is prevention for having a kid like Eric and then leaving him at the mall as a child hoping that he wouldn't find his way home was the treatment although it is nice that Eric thinks. So highly of his dad I've been president trump was probably watching this at home like, wow, that stranger so nice. But yes, according to business casual Polian dynamites not only Donald Trump invent the vaccine but it's already here and you might be thinking wait trouble I just read the Johnson and Johnson had to pause there trial because someone got a mysterious illness but you just watching the wrong news, the real news. Is that corona virus has been handled. I mean you heard what Dr? FAUCI didn't say. And here's the truth people if the president of the United States with his team of sixty doctors in a hospital in his house access to unreleased drives can beat this virus than clearly. Anyone can do it now, who wants to kiss Cam I'm getting. All right we have to take a quick break. But when we come back `Jabuka, white will show you how you can save the election.

So the Davies social distancing show as you know election day is now just three weeks away. Which means now is probably a good time for America to get its affairs in order. Now, unfortunately, Corona virus has prevented many elderly poll workers from helping out this year. So we could see even longer voting lines than usual but luckily, people have been coming up with some creative solutions. There is an energetic effort. You might even call it frantic and some jurisdictions to recruit a new generation of poll workers to replace older. One's that's meant creative recruiting tactics like allowing seventeen year old high school seniors to serve his poll workers and just a few months they've gotten more than thirty thousand kids to step up an army of kids working from their bedrooms using their social media skills. This tiktok racking up nearly two hundred thousand views, Wisconsin using National Guard troops to work the state's primary in battleground. Ohio, they're recruiting at barber shops and companies like old navy and target offering employees a payday off to manage polls Laker Star Lebron James Helping get out the vote his new voting initiative has recruited ten thousand poll workers at Newport's wouldn't cast brewing company. They're labeling craft beer with political ads. It's a plea for poll workers and Qr Code that leads smartphone drinkers to Kentucky Secretary of State's website to sign up for training. Okay. So the good news is that might be a lot of new poll workers. The bad news is some of them might be wasted you own vote for Donald trump because that guys orange. Or are going. But yes, there's a big push right now to find poll workers for this election and our very own Chabukiani white decided to sign up what are. Your voting. So the Powell get you. Nope not that found that out the hard way poll workers, the volunteers that help the election run smoothly. But now thanks covid nineteen old people. The majority of volunteers are dropping out thankfully, there's an initiative recruiting younger election day poll workers called power the polls. So I sat down with one of their directors. Scott huge fan of your work. You're taking care of business everything's under control just wanted to contribute. Give you guys a huge shout out. So good job. I really appreciate that and I definitely could use it but we really need is poll workers to make sure that everyone can vote safely on time this election year that poll workers. Zimbabwean, election, you'd better do part actually really excited to get young folks like yourself. So we're looking for someone exactly like you you gotta be Richard Voter or over the age of sixteen. I think you're older than sixteen. Well, that's very flattering I do get that a lot but you know who I actually have. I have a friend who I think that this would be perfect for he has way more time on his hands than A. Trevor, no. He would be. So actually is forty-five old he's not from here. So I don't know if he's a registered voter, but you know we need everyone to show up in person have to leave your house you mean like actually go outside and. I've been bottomless for six months. Oh and there's also that little issue of King. Pandemic everyone is GonNa get. WHO SHOWS UP MASK? She'll hand sanitizers all that good stuff. Mostly just needed folks to help get people checked in fill out their ballots answer questions. The thing to power the polls is really hoping to inspire is a next generation of workers. Okay. Here's another thought. How are we rebrand the name? I mean even starting with poll worker those are too bad words poll I'm thinking of the subway it's dirty it's growth worker I'm thinking of work. No one likes that what about Okay. I'm thinking whole line monitored. King of the ballots all new out of line and you know vote vote regulator holy-moly. Like holy Moly. How Election. Influence. ooh I don't know problem is you're you're there to be a non-partisan? Okay. Look millennials are broke but you need to do to get people to the polls is money well Juki. Usually, you get paid to be a polar usually over ten dollars an hour So for a full day, that's a couple of hundred bucks. Yet. No Tacoma Age, and this is ridiculous. That's more money I'm making right now. Yeah So you just weren't going to tell me that they were casting workers. The money sounds good. But if I'm GONNA, spend all day taking ballots and risking paper cuts I'm going to need something more. We'll We'll send you a pizza if that's if that's. Hey I I also organization called Pizza Rolls, and so we'll get you lunch and all the folks the polling place you think hit by me with pizza. Topping. Everone. It worked. Okay Scott now, sitting and there's people who don't like pizzas. But they don't volunteer. What's worst thing that can happen? There's longer lines fewer holy places. Polling places tend to close in in citizens, communities where people of color vote it's less safe for workers voters. If porkers don't show up, it could change the course of this week. Doesn't represent the country. If. You are sixteen years old. Sign Up. TO BE A. Poll worker. Do something where you're? Side, please. Volunteer. Again We cheese usually PEPPERONI. We send gluten free ones too if we can. At least do it for the gluten free pizza you contributed nothing life so far Career. Drink representatives. Thank you so much for that. All right. When we come back, we speak to the one and only Anita Hill about the Supreme Court and what her journey has been like over the past thirty years don't go away.

Come back to the daily social distancing show earlier today I spoke with lawyer and Professor Anita Hill, we talked about her work with the Hollywood commission to help fight harassment and discrimination in the entertainment industry, and we talked about the Supreme Court's and the nomination process. Professor Hill welcome to the daily social distancing show. Thank you for keeping say long before the me too movement. Your name was in the headlines because you stepped forward during a confirmation hearing, it was in one, thousand, nine, hundred, one, it was about Clarence Thomas who was was going to be stepping onto the Supreme Court. To part question for me number one. Would you do the same thing again, considering what happened to your life following that incident and number two? How much do you think society has changed since that? Yes. To. Your first question of definitely would at that time that I did it I did it for the reason that I felt the truth had to be told that we were. Batting an individual or a lifetime appointment and the highest court mccown. A country. That Can Be affected by an any single supreme court decision I felt not what I had to say was important in terms of the character and the fitness of an age. All Abu was was the nominee so I would do that again. Has the country change? Yes the country has changed. HAS IT changed up. and a as you probably know confirmation hearings have actually changed as well. But but we have changed and I think there are some more to be had. One of the most lingering memories from the Senate confirmation hearing that you were a part of was how terribly you retreated and one of the people that you live through it with was Joe Biden. There are still many people who experienced that firsthand who haven't forgiven Joe Biden and they were surprised to see you come out and say, well, I'm supporting Joe Biden's run for president of the United States people didn't understand how that was possible considering how he treated you at the time. Would you explain to those to those people who save Anita Hill? Why on Earth would you support Joe Biden after how he treated you thirty years ago I lived through it. Family lived through it, grams lived through it and the American public lift. And so it's not even just about how I experienced. It really is a whole country experiencing it was painful or a lot of people. The question that I that I had answer in you know almost thirty years later is. Where we to go from here. And by voting, for Joe Biden, I was really dealing with the reality of the moment. We have a serious problem whether it's with sexual harassment or sexual assault is you've seen in green court nominee earrings. Or other forms of gender based violence. We have serious problems country at how are we gonNA deal defense. We can't undo the hearings, but we can make sure that they don't happen again. And I believe that my job really is to put myself in a position to keep pushing for a change and I believe my best is making this issue. One that is part of a public agenda is with don't. Into not going to. Be Easy. To work out in push. And is administration at that be the case to make some changes. The society needs Hollywood maybe one of the biggest examples of where the metoo movement really exposed what was happening but really it happened to cost across industries and you stepped up and you part of the Hollywood commission where you are dealing with these incidents. You are now trying to set up parameters that protect people in Hollywood when you look at where Hollywood was. And when you look at way, you think Hollywood needs to be how do we get there? Well, we have made progress and people ask me to was effective at all I. think it raises an incredible amount of awareness and awareness really is the beginning of change, but then gotta get down to the hard work of looking at how those kinds of biases in that kind of acceptance has been built into our structures. In you know. We started out trying to examine the structure in. Then we realized leaf gotTa do a survey we gotta hear from people who are working in the industry about. What they think needs to be done. And over and over. What we were questioning know about. We found out that one they felt there were some progress but not enough, it's almost like, okay. We've got a sense of how things might be and now we want more and we expect more. The other thing was accountability that they're saying you'll we've raised awareness. Now we gotTa Start Holding People Accountable. And we have to put in place the processes policies and will. To make change on the saddest things that I read was that. Many. People in the workplace in the industry feel that. Me To has only been effective or those high profile case with. Our witnesses and victims. And that we don't, we can't we can't tolerate that. We've gotTA. Make sure that this movement in the advances we've made ourselves throughout the industry through every corner because that's where many of the most vulnerable people are. Most definitely I would love to know. How you see yourself in the world, you know if if there's someone out there who who sees a need to hill and goes I had an incident in my life. But I, don't want that incident define me how did you define yourself? Who Do you see as Anita Hill? We'll. See that incident that happened when I was thirty five years old which about your age. Now, if you can think about your life there's so many things that are going on in your life you're at the point where you're looking at. Necessarily want this Moma as wonderful as it is to have your own TV show. You don't necessarily want this moment to define you. there are I will tell you bigger better things to come, but you have to really push for them and that's what I realized. Almost thirty years ago that I was going to have to keep pushing all in. It's one of the reasons that I took on the challenge of working with the Hollywood Commission I still realize that on this issue. There was more work to be done outlet upstanding about there was more actual work to be done. One of the things that I want to be very clear is I see what happened to me I don't see it through a single man's I'll especially now so many years later and looking back I, see it through the Lens of gender, of course, but I also saved through the Lens of race. See through the Lens of class and who long who's in and WHO's out politically. And I at these are the very issues that we're facing in a whole range of ways that I. so when I do work with Hollywood commission, it's it is of course about sexual harassment is about me too but it's also bias it's about bullying. It's about people with disabilities. Different ethnic groups, different racial groups issuing sexual identities. Gender identities, you know what I really trying to look for is. Equality. Equality Jerry ratliff speaking. And keeping people safe. And and so I guess that's the the legacy of a to keep. The next however, many years many of us are going to have a core that we have little confidence in. In terms of getting to equality. But there are other ways to. And that's one thing I've learn especially from hearing that there are other ways to find even when people think you have lost. Your ways that you can find. To make sure that ultimately the goal is achieved, but you have, you have to keep the faith you have to the core. On that note and inspiring notes Professor Hill.

Election Twenty twenty is heading into the home stretch just twenty five days until you vote your view. Terror in Michigan. antigovernment extremists arrested for allegedly planning to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer why she says this was inspired by the president stand back and stand standby you told them and why he claims she should be saying thank you. He's the candidate who has Lindsey Graham feeling the heat about keeping his Senate see being killed financially they hate my guts Jamie, Harrison is live on the view to share whether he'll show up to tonight's debate if Lindsay doesn't take a Kobe test beforehand plus Anita Hill on her mission to hold people accountable for sexual harassment and why her pass confrontation with Joe Biden isn't stopping her from hoping he's our future president and feel Good Friday on view your deal. Here come hot topics. With whoopie Sarah Haynes, joy behar sunny hostile and Megan McCain and Ana Navarro. Now let's get things started. Hello. Hello enjoy. Have no fear. The view girls are here welcome to the view and just think twenty twenty can't possibly shot. That's anymore this happens yesterday thirteen extremists were arrested for allegedly plotting to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and she claims that one man gave them their marching orders watch. Just last week the president of the United States stood before the American people and refused to condemn white supremacists and hate groups like these two. Michigan. Militia. Groups. Stand back and standby he told them. Stand back then stand by. Hate groups the president's words not as a rebuke but is rallying cry. As a call to action. WHEN OUR LEADERS SPEAK Their words matter. They carry weight. When our leaders meet with encourage or franchise with domestic terrorists. Be legitimized their actions and they are complicit. So is she right to say his blowing a dog whistle to these extremist groups? Sunny. What do you think there's an I? You know I think it's a valid point. Joy I think it's valid question. Whether or not the president's rhetoric has emboldened at the very least these groups you know by not only refusing to denounce them at every turn but by saying things like stand back stand by but by also tweeting things like. Michigan in response to this governor, merely putting in precautions to try to protect American citizens from a deadly virus. When this president said, it was up to be governors of states to protect the citizens that he wasn't going to put in any federal mandates. The other thing is he feigns ignorance of these extremist groups when his own F. B. I. Head Christopher Wray basically testifies that. The. Domestic violence extremist remained the most persistent and lethal threat in the United States and I really ask everybody to read the FBI F- affidavit because it is chilling, we're talking about people saying that they were going to take her hostage before the election, take her to a secure location in Wisconsin for a trial, a treason trial, and they had surveilled her home. I mean this was serious and they had taken actions in furtherance of conspiracy her life was in danger. Right Sarah think is guilty I think these groups have definitely been emboldened as sunny said, but I wanna I commend the FBI in the local law enforcement because it takes them infiltrating these groups in person on social media and their the reason this was stopped i. think it's a perfect storm right now, these I in reading this Michigan has had a history of these militia groups. They have maybe the highest number in they're kind of seen as the desired pinnacle of of militia groups and then combined with a governor who likes sunny said was had some of the most. the strictest guidelines during this pandemic she had like almost two hundred executive orders. It was like a perfect storm for them to rise up in a sense and I think the scary thing about all this is that the one common thread and all these groups that are scattered all the way across the country in all fifty states is they seize on civil unrest and if there's something we can say about the times we live in their divided in polarized and it's the biggest reason we need leadership right now who bring the temperature down in that is not what we're getting. Normally not getting leadership. We're not getting any help from any of the Republican leadership either because they coddle allow this type of thing, they have been coddling him since the Giddy up. So I think they're just as guilty. What do you think? I think this should not be partisan. Are thing this is about being American think this is about be human. And condemning political violence should not be a hard thing to do whether it's Steve Scalise scalise getting shot a baseball field and a congressional baseball field or whether it's governor Whitman. Threat and the danger she was under I watched this last night I said yesterday as it was unfolding. And I didn't you know What shocked me, it shocked me that it's shocking but a no longer shocks me in twenty twenty. The idea that there is this conspiracy to go kidnap assassinate try a governor of Michigan is something that I felt like I was watching an episode of the ozarks, an episode of scandal but somehow reality is even crazier than fiction and look words matter Donald Trump tweeting out, liberate Michigan for most people. That's. Just one more Donald Trump tweet. But for if you are a whack job, if you are unstable, those things trigger you and those things lead to action he has got the biggest bully pulpit of anyone in the world. The American presidency at he should use to condemn white supremacy to condemn political violence and to frankly call for unity because words matter when they are the president's words, they matter even more. Right, they're not just unstable they're organized. That's what's scary. So. Just, a week after announcing that he has the coronavirus trump and his doctor claims ready to get back on the campaign trail. But when we come back see if you think he sounds like the picture of health during this interview with Hannity last night state. Trump. Welcome back to the view. So we were just talking about Governor Whitmer and she will be here on the view on Tuesday. So put that on your calendars. It's only been a week since the admitted he contracted the coverage but he says he's ready to hold rallies in Florida and Pennsylvania's earliest this weekend and his doctor gave him the green light to do it whose doctor Dr Vinnie boombox. Let's watch him Hatton's way through Hannity last night. In the last time I had a big problem they adulated. Get the debate with three debates with Hillary and. Or I think I debate. They. Debate they related the Mike. And they oscillated it very very. seriously. Will you encourage your supporters to get out and vote early? Well I want him to vote but I will say this absentees. Okay. Because absentee ballots Excuse me. Absentee ballots are fine. And just F-. Why The Great Mitch McConnell has been avoiding the White House like the plague. At the studio of the Rachel Maddow show so does that sound like a guy who's ready to take show on the Road Ladies Ama-. To me. He sounds like a guy who's choking literally and politically look I. Think he's I think he regrets all of this stuff about not wanting to debate donald trump has no leverage right now all the polls are showing him behind. I say, don't rely on polls you should always. Vote and campaign and get engaged of your life depends on it but he needs to debate more than Joe Biden needs to debate and it's like you know look I realized that after seeing but fly land on Mike Pence's head. He probably thought my God if a fly lands on my head, it'll never get out of there. So I better not be Bait. I think. Now. He is trying to go back on this issue of I couldn't debate and and he needs to debate. So he's trying to show that he is healthy i. hear that he's thinking of coming where I am to Florida tomorrow. So all I have to say is shoot staying doors, lock your doors, Mar, the windows. Right lack of lack of your animals. Sarah. Do. You think that the fly with gotten stuck in his head. That's hilarious. Sarah. I think the thought of a rally right now is just Shocking and as Anna said not shocking at the same time, we were just seeing him take a ride outside of the hospital where everyone talked about putting at risk the four people in the car. Now, we're talking about what it takes to get the president from Washington DC to Florida and all the people that social security, Pilots Press Corp people in that Air Force One and now they're going to a rally. We've seen his inner circle be hit by at least thirty four cases as a result. Of them not wearing masks in being close together the Rose Garden event as well, and now you're going to rally that draws thousands of people, and it's not a matter of is the virus here. It's the viruses here, and this isn't a group of people at these rallies that typically wear masks or socially distance at all, and now they leave this event and compromise every person they pass from gas gas station attendant to a restaurant and their families. The irresponsibility of this is crazy because right now. Traveling here in the US to some states, including DC, if you go there, you are to quarantine for fourteen days. That's what's recommended in prudent. How many examples are we gonNa have where we are expected as citizens to do one thing and the president and the administration are allowed to do something else? Okay. Yes. Very okay. Sunday you only have a very short time left. So tell us what you think very succinctly because I always want to hear from you go ahead. Yeah I just think it's just very very reckless because I'm not a doctor but according to the CDC guidelines for patients with severe illness and it seems like he suffered from severe version of the coronavirus. He could still be very very contagious and he has to isolate for up to twenty days and it's only been ten days and so he could be spewing infectious particles to everyone at the rally so he should stay home. He tried to kill Pete. Don't know what he's trying to do to his supporters. We'll be right back. Next, he's the man who has Lindsey Graham worried about his job security and tore into him at their first debate center. How good is your word when you made a promise to the American people and even more you made a promise to the folks in South Carolina that you wouldn't be doing what they're doing right now Jamie Harrison is live on the view to share his journey from Dr to the man who could help Democrats paint the Senate, blew. Grandfather always taught me. He said Jamie man is only as good as his word well center. How good is your word when you made a promise to the American people and even more you made a promise to the folks in South Carolina, that you wouldn't be doing what they're doing right now. Ouch. Ouch that was South Carolina Democrat Jamie, Harrison taking Republican. Lindsey. Graham to task at last week Senate debate here to tell us how he's giving. The longtime incumbent can handle a lot more is Jamie. Hamas Harrison. Welcome to the show Jamie Nice to have you here. Thank you so much joy I'm so excited you know knows more excited my Momma Tricia, who's watches Thank y'all make it. Happen. Hello Mom. Okay. So Jamie when you announced that you were running against Lindsey Graham for the Senate no one thought you had a chance you now. But now now the race is described as a toss up. You have also significantly out, fundraise him audience to the point where Graham went on Fox to beg beg I tell you for donations? Graham has been a senator since twenty three. Why do you think after all these years that his losing favour with some Carolina voters? Well. Part of the joy is that Lindsey Graham has gone. He cares more about his own events in power in Washington and during the job and the people in south. Carolina. They need a senator for work him. You know even before the coronavirus hit South Carolina many folks many communities in in the state have been suffering. In South Carolina two years ago. Fourteen of our forty six counties had no. obgyn's are we've had four rule hospitals to close. Thirty percent rural communities in the state don't have access to broadband. So they can't even get onto the Internet and those are the issues that people have been dealing with or longtime, and Lizzy gun talk Ra. Worries about what's going on in Washington DC. Ozone on. Came Me Nice to have you here, you'll worked for. Jim Clyburn for many. So you know South Carolina politics and in two thousand, fifteen Lindsey Graham called trump a race baiting Sina phobic religious bigot who was unfit for office. But now he's one of his biggest supporters why? Why do you think Lindsay has made such a big change and do you think is unwavering support of trump has helped? You has it helped him what has this support done? Well it's about political opportunism I am. Lenzi is only in it for himself. He had his interview last year in which you said his goals were for this year was getting elected and being politically router, and it's it's almost like you know he just to figure out how he can get in front of the TV camera how he'd be enforced from me. I'm as a relevancy not by how many TV gets I do Sean Hannity Your how many times are golf with the President I've. Measured my relevancy by whether or not I'm hoping the people in South Carolina, and so you know in the end of the day I tell folks this is not about Democrats versus Republicans of progresses versus conservatives is about focusing on is right versus what is wrong in Lazy has forgotten it I used to respect him greatly I thought he was a good guy rise above the political fray. But what we've seen as a he's why people hate politics. Now. Your second debate with Lindsey Graham is tonight but last night you said that you will not attend the debate. If Graham does not take a covert nine, thousand, nine, hundred tests I think that's smart. Lindsey says, he will follow the previously set debate rules of just having his temperature checked before entering the building. He also says that you didn't ask reporters to take a Kovic test before they interviewed you two days ago at a bar and you're just trying to avoid answering tough questions. How do you respond to this? I. It's SORTA. Laughable. First of all, congratulations on your amazing new book but you know, Lindsey, it's still oh, he's so desperate. At, all of the experts have said, `I soundly beat him at the last debate. But what this is about is about being brothers and our sisters keepers in the last debate Lindsey Graham took Kobe test each took a Kobe at that last debate. This is about being responsible. We met every five hundred people to die in South Carolina because of the krona vast one of them was my aunt and so the responsibility is not just about us as an. Individual. But the people who are there they're hardworking people at that studio and every single one of them is taking a test. I'm taking a test right after this episode today. So why in the world can Lindsey Graham not just go and take a test? All of that riding took him thirty minutes. It takes less than thirty minutes to go and get you know swamp and take a test Lindsey. What are you had? Why can't you take the test? Jamie for many years. Southern states like South Carolina typically voted for Republicans. But much like your race polls are showing that Biden and trump are now neck and neck and Republican stronghold states like Texas Georgia North Carolina and now South Carolina to what do you think has changed southern voters. Well I think part of it, let's you're seeing areas is the emergence of what I call the New South, new? South? That is Bo that is inclusive that is diverse. The seat that I'm find for was a seat of Johnson count home it was a senior Strom Thurmond. It was a seat of a man called Ben Pitch for Tillman talked about the joys of lynching or black folks and so on. November. Third with voters goal and cast their. Ballots final are you on November floor when you get when we see the results South Carolina the very first two see him that you will be the very first to have two African American senators serving her at the very same time and so I'm Palette, a transformation of the South Lindsay's relic Abed old sal I'm about building a bridge to the new South and that's what you're seeing not only here in South Carolina. But in Georgia North Carolina. Office out emergence of a new. A new awakening where people know that all voices should be value and her. Okay. Jamie. We're not letting you go yet. Because we have more with you. So please stay tuned for more with Jamie Harrison when we come back. was approaching my car with his hand already over his gun and my life was a threat we. You say we are stared lumpy American. Love this country. and. This country. Back the stop. Sunday. At Five PM Eastern and Pacific on ESPN. and. So we just. Lost our guest Jamie Harrison I. Mean we didn't lose them. The technology is so crazy right now in this particular period in history. So we we're GONNA get him back. I. Think Pretty Quickly I. Say behind his back. Yeah I. Think the Russians hack his lovely. I hope he beats Lindsey. It's all I have to say. Look very interesting race. I I've been very skeptical of whether this. He could win in South Carolina South Carolina is very much of a a solid red state. But as you said in the beginning, it's now a toss up and when we just interviewed him when we saw him in the debate, I thank you can see why. And Jamie. Harrison's a man with a with a lot of experience. He worked for a man for Jim. Clyburn, who was The, whip. The Democratic Whip in The House and a legend in. South. Carolina. Somebody that knows how to work across the aisle and and like Jamie I you know I've I've known Lindsey Graham for many years I supported him I hosted fundraisers for him and frankly the man I see today is a recognizable to me. and. and. He says to me during the break that that's why he was running because. He's look I would never have run against the other Lindsey Graham but this is a at least. That's you know it's like he's been through a episode of the body snatchers. Listen He. When? He. When he was here a few years ago he had like another four years to go before he was up for reelection. He had a whole different rap. Now we have Jamie. Beck. But Lindsay Lindsay Justice all about politics anyway would back with Jamie Jamie how? High we lost you for a second. It was your. You see what I'm talking about the Rock Band here in South Carolina Internet. Yeah Okay let me ask you this question because it's an online mind because this week South Carolina Republican election officials were granted permission by the Supreme Court to reinstate this requirement that absentee ballots include witness signatures. Now, that has got to be a ridiculous thing in the middle of a pandemic when people are alone in their house who's supposed to come and witness their signatures. There's this just another way for them to obstruct justice and obstruct the vote in your opinion what are you going to do about it? While, joy it's the saddest thing in Lenzi is in agreement with us you know in the midst of a pandemic when anxiety in our house an all time high where people are just trying to keep. The Lights on, impede their ran in and try to stay safe and healthy. You've got Republican officials here including Lindsey Graham who are going all the way to the Supreme Court to prevent people from voting and that's that's fundamentally wrong. I mean we send our sons daughters overseas to fight for democracy to fight for the right to vote for other folks in other countries and we do everything we can hear to prohibit people from voting in our country. That's just fundamentally wrong. Yeah. On the United States Senate kind of. Jim Crab. It's so yeah it's like right? Yeah. Sunny go ahead well up very quickly. We don't have much time, but we have very similar stories I've learned and with how we grew up and you've said that regardless of what happens in November you feel like you've already one tell us what you mean by that. Wall. Sunny you know when I go out and I talked to young folks. And they just tell me they said you know missing I. Never Thought I. Would See. An ADIGA American man from Orangeburg south. Carolina. Run. For the Senate and you're almost there and you inspire and that's what this is all about. It's about inspiration and giving people. Hope you know our model here in South Carolina Sunny while I breathe I, hope hope is what got me from a mobile home to now on the verge of being a next United States senator. From South Carolina, it's hoping hard work and I hope young people see that in this country, what makes this country great is that you can do anything you possibly dream and you just have to have hope and you just have to work hard to in order to do with I hope that this campaign is demonstrating that for young people across this country Indians out caroline. We can we only hope Jamie that people will do the right thing and vote? So I wanNA, thank you very much for coming here today, and we hope you'll come back again and we will be right back. Thank you. Why does Anita Hill say she still voting for Joe Biden despite their confrontation over her claims that Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her and does she think the me too movement has done enough to stop the culture of harassment she's live on the view next. Welcome back to the view. So lawyer and activist Anita Hill made headlines back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, one when she bravely publicly spoke out against sexual harassment and a toxic work culture and she continues to speak out and fight for women's equality and fair treatment to this day here to tell us about her latest important mission is Anita Hill. Thank you for having me. It's good to be here. It's an honor and a pleasure to have you here Michelle. So we're GONNA get into your nonprofit work in just a minute but people do remember those hearings I was on the radio during that time and I was champing you to the Max and I remember it was a very contentious period by I remember chaired them and he admits to making mistakes he did admit that and he says he's sorry for what happened to you. Now you said that you're going to vote for him for president. Why did you decide that he should get your vote because he was not really on your side in those days. You know what? First of all I WANNA. Thank you in. Your show vice-president Biden did appear on your show and I do recall it. You helped move him forward. I think understanding his responsibility for those hearings having said that that is really up why I have decided that. I want to move for work in continue to push for the kind of. Of Responsibility, and accountability. Making sure that happened to me. In what happened later Christine Bodley four does not happen again but not just in terms of Senate committee hearings just in terms of the way we are treating women in workplaces on the streets in their homes in terms of gender-based by we have to move We have to move on this. This is an issue that's important not just about me and job I. It it's about the welfare of the country. And I'M GONNA call you Anita 'cause you told us to earlier but as somebody who is familiar with the Supreme Court nomination process, I am wondering what you think of President? Trump's choice of any Barrett and what it could mean for women. I'M NOT GONNA make an evaluation of amy coma bear coke cody bearer. What I will say this, we need more time. We absolutely need more time you know. The Supreme Court is essential to our democracy. It's as essential as the president. It's as essential to as Congress and we need more time to understand exactly what we're getting with this new this nominee we don't have time where Millo Kobe, we are in the middle of a presidential race. People are. Struggling to keep their jobs in their homes. Now, we cannot en- should not rush into selecting a pre. What nominee just for political expediency say what we need to do is have a fair hearing it will do service to the American public. The public needs to know who is being appointed for a lifetime as well as a service to the courts out. Emini. I WanNa talk to you about your your your work with a nonprofit group called the Hollywood commission to help fight harassment and discrimination in Hollywood the group surveyed more than ninety, six, hundred workers in the industry and found that only thirty five percent. Believe it likely that someone in a position of power would be held accountable for harassing someone subordinate to them as someone who has testified to experiencing this firsthand? What do you see as the challenges of coming forward with allegations of harassment or abuse? I see the challenges as in many ways as are the people who responded to the survey get. People don't come forward because they fear that they're going to be retaliated against in. That's real. It's it's factual. It happens. They don't come forward because they they often taken seriously. And finally, they don't come forward because they realize that even after someone is found to be a responsible for bad behavior that there is no accountability for that behavior and we've got to stop that we've got to begin by holding people accountable and we also have to provide people safe and secure platforms and processes or them to report the behavior. and. We have to protect them afterwards against retaliation.

Harvey Weinstein was convicted earlier this year of rape and sexual assault against two women and sentenced to twenty three years in prison accusations by dozens of women in two thousand seventeen led to the end of his career and it helped spur the to movement. How effective do you think the movement has been for women? I think the movement has been very effective. I don't think that you would have had the accountability for. Or excuse me out I'll think that Harvey Weinstein would have been held accountable but for the me too movement and not only did people come forward. But you know the district attorney's found a way to hold someone who was accused multiple times. To hold him accountable. Even while they were protecting due process. We see now that their new charges against him as well, and again, this is over do when we made our first announcement about the survey results.

Ep. 161: Tackling The Lack Of Diversity In Hollywood

"Phase of wanting puppy. Knock at a puppy. I'm not getting a puppy. There's no way I'm getting a puppy. Totally getting a puppy. I and welcome to happier in Hollywood the podcast about how to be happier, healthier Saner, more, creative, more successful and more productive in a backbiting superficial, chaotic, unpredictable fundamentally. Insane world. I'm Sarah Spain writer and producer living in L. A. and with me as my high school friend and writing partner Liz. That's me Liz craft on this podcast. We talk about being writers in Hollywood, how we balance a career and friendship and how to survive the war of attrition that is life in. In Los Angeles in today's episode. We're going to talk to John Nets Volturno of catch, light studios and Julie Harris Walker of catch a break podcast about how they're working to make Hollywood more diverse. Yes, they're not just talking about it. They're doing it and they are tackling this issue Sarah in many ways. We're going to hear about all of them. Yes, and then we have a hack that's good for adults working from home and fun for kids. Having distance plates to. Okay Sarah we have a lot to cover, so we are going to dive right into from the treadmill of in which we discuss, what's most pressing in our work psyches and this week? It's catch light studios. We're going to talk about their work. which includes a studio production, company and amazing podcast, and so much more. There's a team of women behind catch sight studios today. We're joined by two of them. Them and they are tackling the lack of diversity in Hollywood in a major way. Genetic Volturno founder of Catch Light Studios has produced seven franchises in twenty twelve Ginette joined Bloom House, says the head of production where she worked on over sixty feature films, including the Academy Award Winning Pictures Whiplash and get out prior to this role Janette worked as a line producer on the hugely successful paranormal, activity and insidious. Insidious Franchises which laid the foundation for Blunt Houses Success Julie Harris Walker is the producer and host of the podcast. The other fifty percent of her story of Hollywood were Julie Talks to successful women and entertainment and shares their stories. She also hosts the catch a break podcasts which we'll talk about today it's the insiders guide to breaking in navigating Hollywood Julie has spent the last twenty five years in l.. L. A. Working in the entertainment industry as a commercial producer production auditor at Disney production finance executive at HBO and the Weinstein. COMPANY VP of sales for entertainment partners currently s VP west coast operations for green slate along the way she is, had three amazing children written a book about pregnancy discrimination incorporations. You'll never have a baby in this job again and become a passionate advocate for gender, equality and diversity. The book sounds amazing way. Julie and Ginette welcome welcome. Thank you for being here during this time in our country, when so many of these issues are at? The forefront seems important right now, doesn't it? She says yes, it does so. We have a lot of ground to cover, and we're going to get to the catch a break podcast, which host and talk about the special live series. You're doing about how production? Production can return after covid nineteen, which I'm super interested in, but we want to start with hearing about catch late studios and crew v the production database. You're all creating, so we're recording this on June fifth and protests over the systemic racism in our country are going on all over, and we've known forever that there is entrenched racism in Hollywood and everywhere both. Behind and in front of the camera, your work combatants that in a very concrete way. Yeah so let's start with. Let's start with cruelty. When I was running production at Blohm House, I was in a unique position where I was able to hire people on a crew, and I could have some influence on who the department heads were and so. I was helping people to move up in take chances and shift job positions and I could help bring people into the industry in certain positions, and that was really exciting to me, and I realized that trying to get more women in or people of color or any diversity on crew was it was hard because there wasn't enough people in the pool to actually bring up so marcy, Brown, who is my partner on this project and I sat there and thought about okay. How do we find these people? Where are they? And how do we identify them? Train them and help them. Them move up. And we sat down and made a wishlist of all of the things that we wished, and it didn't exist out there. We couldn't find a tool set out there to help us find and cultivate these people, so we found these amazing women who have accompanied called wonder woman coders, and they teach other women how to Code. And they became our business partners. We pitched the idea of creating a database that was an inclusive global database and here I'm GONNA show my age because I like to refer to it as like a Rolodex but nobody uses them anymore. Where people could identify themselves. However, they wanted to identify themselves, so they could choose I want to be known as a woman who is over forty who is a veteran or I wanna be a a man who speaks Spanish whatever there's twenty or so different categories that you can choose to identify as so. There's a couple of different ways that you can get into the database. Database either a production company has a show, and they enter you into the database, and you'll get a notification that you've been entered in it because you're now on the cruelest for that, or you can go in and enter yourself in there, or the company can put you in there, but in any case you get a notification saying that you're in this database you can suppress. Suppress your information. If you don't want to be in the database, or you can embrace it, and you can say here's who I am. I am a camera operator who is an aspiring DP so now I can search under camera operator and I can search under aspiring DP. Who is a woman is over forty great now I can search for a camera operator. Who is an? An aspiring DP who is a woman who is over forty who is in the Lgbtq community who is a person of color who speaks Spanish who has a password, any of those criterias, and you can really refine what it is it you're looking for so that putting together a crew and a workforce you have the ability to be able to level certain people up, it's. It's so good because we've found in recent years, we might issue a mandate to production. We want a more diverse crew. More women more people of color and everyone says yes. Yes, yes, that's what we want to. Yes, we're doing our best, and then nothing happens you go to the set and you know well. This looks exactly like all of our other shows. Exactly it feels. Feels like this is sort of the answer to that so that people can't say no, we can't find anyone. They're just not out there. This is how you find them. We could just hand them this tool. And then they can be found what I really love about the Group of people that I'm working within the team of everybody is everything that we've done from the. The, database to the studio to the management company to the podcast has been pulling our boots up ourselves and we built this database for ourselves because it was a piece of a tool kit that we needed, and it was something that we realized that the rest of the community needed as well I sat on the board of the low budget film committee for the Iot Agreement. Agreement, the contract and one of the issues of getting people into the Union is that if you're a company and you've signed a union contract in your adhering to those rules, you are obligated to hire union I. You're not allowed to hire non union person, so there's the catch twenty two of getting people into the Union. It's all fair and good that you say okay. You're an aspiring person who wants to move into this position, and you're in this position. But how do you actually get into that next position right right? So yeah, one of the big big pieces that we were able to accomplish last year, and this happened in November twenty nineteen was the Iot low-budget theatrical contract and the team that created it from the outside from the union side, and from the producers side came up with a piece of. Of language that says notwithstanding all of the above, which is hiring first off of a roster, an employer can hire one person per production from bonafide industry training program at the rate that's applicable to their classification in consultation with that affected union, so that means that you can bring in one person on any production in a low budget, theatrical contract a low-budget setting into the union. That's a game changer. Now we can start bringing people in. Is that one person in every union. One person in many news, while in the I one person in like you can bring in one person for hair and makeup or one person for wardrobe or one person for grip or one person for craft service one person. On the entire show, so it's slow going, but if you think about it, I was averaging fifteen low-budget productions per year at Blair House. So there's a very symbiotic relationship between the low-budget world The independent world and the rest of the industry. You need the low budgets in order for people to get in for everyone to learn how things work for people to move positions for creativity, and for trying out new ways of doing things. It's not just doing it low budget because we're cheap. It's a whole learning ground for people. That's where people cut their teeth. You don't come out of film school and go straight into a Michael Bay film. If literally happens. One thing that I'm thinking as you're talking is you are really focused, obviously, on Hollywood and the mechanics of Hollywood, but it's feels like something like this would work and other industries as well that I'm so glad that you said that we dream that the same database the same application could be used for other industries all over the world. It can be used for hospitality. It can be used for finance. It can be used for anything that you're looking for. We just did a zoom session with a group of people from the. The studios, and from the Irvine Foundation, and from Deloitte, who are trying to crack how to change the fabric of our industry and one of the things that they asked us was database that you've created. It feels like it's very attuned to people who are on set, and I said he s, but with a few more job classifications into it. It can be for anybody who is coming into the studio and wants to work on the corporate side of things, so you can change it to be corporate as well by just changing. The titles of how you're calling people sort of a camera operator. You're looking for an accounting EXAC well. Crew V is amazing. We will absolutely be using it moving forward. Thank you for awesome reading that resource. Love your feedback on how it can help with the writing side with the creative side because that's an area. That's way off fluid. The search criteria needs to be adjusted a little bit more for the writing artists side of things, so we would love to work with you and figure out how languaging works and that side of things. Absolutely, let's do it good. And you also have number one rule management. Explain I what's the number? One rule is the number one rule that we've said our entire careers is take care of your crew. That is the number one rule. If people ask us like what's the secret sauce behind the production? How can you keep creating all of these productions low price and doing it over and over the repeatable thing? The answer is it's not a playbook. It's not a defined technique. It's not a mold, its success it's the success is simply the return on investment from the people and the craftsman that we work with in the we support, we support them. We allow them to thrive, and they come back and figure out how to create what it is. We're asking on all of these projects, so the number one. One rule is if you take care of your crew, they will take care of you. And so we created a management company to train hire and retain people and individuals in, and we're focusing in Los Angeles I in the most vulnerable people that are impacted and underrepresented in the population, and train them and employ them through the production partnerships that we have through our studio and through our originals. And how do you find people to train? What is your reach out? So we're working with a woman named Alexa who is a dear friend who worked at homeboy industries for several years, and she is helping us through outreach programs find and partner with particular organizations. We're not trying to reinvent a wheel. There are people out there. That are helping people get into certain programs and outlets, and we're partnering with them to help Create A. A roster of people that we can pick from and help bring into the industry and then train, and then give them more tools. They need to learn how to network. It's well and good to bring one person in, and you give them their first job, but what happens after that job? The issue is they have a networked with people right? There's no foundation for them to say okay. That's great. I did my first thing. Thing, but now what do I, do right, and that's part of why we created the catcher break podcast is because when I was an exact, I would have all these kids come in and say like Hey, can I take ten minutes of your time and buy you a cup of coffee and I was doing five six seven of these meetings per week and I realized if I keep this up, I'm going to be over caffeinated. caffeinated never get anything done, and they're not asking the right questions and I feel like. If we could create this podcast that it would be something that would be a little bit more evergreen. It could help people answer. Those questions so I came to Julie and she had done the other fifty percent in the history. Hollywood was a dear friend, and I pitched her this idea with our friends and she was like Hella so. Yes people come to. And they don't even know what jobs exist. I know we had no idea that there was such thing as TV writers when we were growing up, we do. We're from the Mid West. Hollywood was not on our radar. Okay we're GONNA. Take a quick break, and we'll be right back to discuss the catcher break podcast and the live series that you're doing about how the industry is addressing covid nineteen. Getting in shape doesn't have to be about losing a specific amount of weight or a magic number on the scale. It's about building healthier habits and feeling better about yourself. That favorite pair of jeans is your goal great, but there are many reasons you might wanNA practice, self care, and every person is different Sarah I just had a birthday, and I'm really trying to focus on taking care of myself and the tools that neum has like the weight tracker the step counter all of these different tools, really helping me take control based in psychology. NEUM teaches you want you do the things you do and empowers you with the tools. Tools you need to break bad habits and replace them with better ones your human. If you go off track as I have sometimes, there's no shaming just tips to help you. Get back on track tomorrow. You don't have to change it all in one day. Small steps make big progress. Sign up for your trial today. NEUM NO DOT com slash Hollywood. What do you have to lose visit? NEUM DOT com slash Hollywood to start your trial today. That's an. M. Dot Com. Slash Hollywood. Okay, let's talk about. Catch a break podcast. I think it is so excellent and just really getting into the nitty gritty. Thank, you I, think we're all in that position unless you were born and raised in Hollywood and came up in the industry you come to Hollywood, and you see that they're actors and directors, and you -ssume that maybe there's writers, and that's it when really there are thousands of jobs in Hollywood and no matter what your skill set or passion or whatever is. Is. There's probably a job for you. If you only knew about it, so of course, it was very funny because I was interviewing Ginette for the other fifty percent, and at the end of that podcast she started pitching the catch on past, and I was like yeah great idea, and soon as I turn off the recorder, she said, do you WanNa do it. You've just met genetic. Of course I guess the first season was really. Let's start at the beginning like episode one and we would gather panels of experts in all of these things that we were talking about so season one was. How do you get your first internship? And then once you're in the internship. How do you parlay that into getting your first job? How do you network? How do you talk to people? What did you resume? Look like? And then once you have your first job and say it's onset how you behave onset like the things nobody tells you until you've made some big mistakes that could derail career on your day right, so it was when you show up. Here's what you need to know. Here's how you need to act. We even did a video on how to use a walkie talkie. Because even if you've gone through film school, you come out, you may know how to direct a feature film. Theoretically you know all the little pieces that nobody tells you about. You're actually in the industry figuring it out, so the whole first season was really all the little bits and pieces of things you may not even know questions you may not know to ask. We went through a call sheet and talked about every single position on a set. Oh my God. I wish I had had that when we saw our first call sheets. Reminding me stay on our very first show that kept talking about the swing set. We'll minded. We need a swings. Playground on the I didn't. I was so. We did episode on. What is the language and what do all the? Spend your first year walking around writing things down. Like what does that mean? So we did that, that was one trying not to look like. You're just like completely wide and no nothing. You have to like pretend you know, but you don't know. How to be cool man and the thing. that. Really gets me on these things as we're talking about bringing in people in underserved communities, and this is a freelance industry and people really don't get that when they first get in, so we did a whole show on. Listen you know you're going to get paid really well on one show, and then you're gonna be off for who knows your next show. How do you create a budget for a year and sustain yourself on that? And what do you need to know about what it's like working? How do you operate within those things and those are the things that I think? Really make or break it for people who come into this industry because you have to realize you are not living on fifty two weeks a year paycheck. You are living freelance, so assume that you're going to get paid nine months out of the year instead of twelve months out of the year and spread that out. We tell every staff writer on their first job. Remember, this is your first job in. It's hard to get the second job and you don't know how long it's going to be. And suddenly you're going from making assistant money to making writer money. You just have to remember to stretch it out which percent exactly? And, the other piece we did was on our website. We added a bunch of bonus material. So like the day we talked about call sheets. There was a call she. You can download and follow along nicely printed out the glossary, so people could follow along because he really wanted to make it learning environment and a teaching tool. And I wanna just mentioned right now. That's catch a break. PODCASTS DOT COM, and of course will mention it again, but just for everybody. You got to just make that a regular place you go. Okay Julie so you've been talking to all kinds of people in all kinds of jobs. Is there something they have in common? Do you think that makes people successful? Oh, for sure I mean one of the funny things we ask everybody. What was your first job in? How did you get it? And there is no story that is the same, so there's a lesson new. There is no there is no method. There is no checklist, but the thing that really a genetic add onto us, but the things that really make people make it is. Showing up your work ethic, asking questions being helpful, not having an ego persisting all of those qualities that really can go across any job that you have. Those are the things that really get people to make it agree wholeheartedly. True I. We always say if you get coffee with enthusiasm. Then you will end up getting the job as the writer's assistant the next you just seem like you WanNa be there ago such a long way and get the coffee. Right and conventional knowledge is if you make a mistake, and the thing is beneath you nothing beneath anybody. And do the extra thing also you know like us. We had a writer's PA on the fixed. She's a writer now because she was in the writer's room every day. She said I want to be in there and she didn't just go in once. We've had assistant who said they wanted to be in the room and then never actually show up in the room. She was in there every single second that she could be in there. When you see that kind of passion, you're like okay. We will do anything we can. Help you move forward exactly and you have to have a real improv attitude. Everything should be yes and yes. And would you like a cookie with it? For us. We nuts a bag of nuts. We guess, don't be evil donut. Bring her. All right before we let you guys go. We have to talk about the live series. You have been doing on the return to production after or during I really say. In Nineteen Pandemic I. Know you've already started it. Tell us about it. I know people can go back and watch episodes. They've missed What is? You're not too late. We've only done one episode so far. We're going to do four in the series and it's really. How do we go back to work in the COVID nineteen era? Because we realize it's never going to be while someday, it'll be posted Cova, but not for a long time. How are we going to work within that environment? And so we wanted to attack it from a bunch of. Of Different Areas I know everyone in the world is doing the series right now, so we wanted to make sure that we were doing it a little bit differently, and from really all different kinds of perspective, so our first episode, which we did the week before last, and you can find it on catcher break dot, com. You can also find it on dot com. It's on facebook. It's on Youtube. And it was. What are the protocols which everyone is talking about? But also we had Errington, executive director of the Hollywood Commission. We had Sonia J F Barnett a certified intimacy coordinator and we had Nancy Naysayer, casting director along with our very own Jeanette to really talk about besides going back to work and safety protocols also had. We maintain a safe set for everybody. Everybody in all meanings of that word had we not lose track of our diversity and inclusion work? Had we not lose track of our sexual harassment work? How do we make sure that even if we're all in has met suits. How're the actors safe and can come back to work, so it was a really good conversation I'm really proud of how it went especially. Now we later the civil unrest that were in I'm so happy that we kept diversity inclusion top of mind in that conversation. So then going forward next week we're going to feature some vendors and how they're pivoting to work in this new world, because everyone's been talking about so many things need to go digital. You know accounting needs to go. Digital Payroll needs to go digital. What are we going to do on set as far as P P. and cleanliness, so we have a whole swath vendors from all different aspects talking about how they're going to pivot to work in this new world, whether it's a digital workflow or dailies that happen faster or clean carts on sets to help me mold protect against all of that, so that's our episode on June. Eleventh. And then on the eighteenth we're going to talk about the big elephant in the room which is finances its insurance bonds budgets financing, because we know producers are going to figure it out right. How this is all going to work unless you can get bonded or get insurance? We're still at a dead end, so we're GonNa talk about what those aspects are going to look like. As all that information comes out how deals may be different, if distribution is different, we're going to talk about that piece and then our final episode. We're going to go back a little bit too protocols, but really. What kind of production do we think can come back? I or now we're going to have someone who has been shooting during the Democrat. We're going to talk to someone who does variety of different genres to talk about which ones he thinks are going to be able to happen I. We're going to talk to the California Film Commissioner Calling Bell to talk about kind of the landscape and the governor's recommendations and the amputee recommendations, and how that all looks 'cause? We have a little theory that probably is going to be smaller independence, perhaps reality like those productions maybe. I? Were guessing huge studio scripted series. Make them later just because they have so many people in so many moving parts, although they also have the money to do everything that needs to be done protocol wise, so we're really going to discuss all of those and see where we end up. Here's what I want to know this thing because they're starting to put out regulations and sort of plans and new processes for all of these things, but the one thing to me. That's not getting addressed. Is Air Quality? Ventilation systems on sets. I looked at the new production regulations that came out, and it was like one bullet point in the midst of a miscellaneous thing, and I'm just like this is the air the yes, stages are big, but they're. It's a very enclosed space, and you're not letting noise in. You're not letting air from outside in. And that concerns me personally, I don't feel like anybody's talking about that so. If you have experts coming in? Please ask them about set air quality, and what can be done to make the air quality safer because it's should not just be a bullet points oh man. There's another monkey wrench. We need to have airplane happe- filters in the studio. It's going to cost a lot Oh. Yes, so you know so right for outdoors right now. Yes, Oh, we are believe you me. We've been talking about that everything we do. We're like. How can this be outside? The, emotional roller coaster every time we have hope, then there's another. We are seriously everything. It's like and they're walking outside. Well Jeanette and Julie Thank you so much for joining us today. You are doing so many fantastic things. My Hope People listen to this interview more than once so they can sort of get it all. Ending we. We would love to talk about the database. The ASU because that is an incredibly exciting thing. You're doing, so we're excited about all of these pieces. It's so funny that you spend X. amount of years sort of dreaming and and creating and putting all of these things together, and now they all feel like their blossoming at the right time, which is such a nice feeling that you put so much love and care. Care and nurturing into various projects from creating a studio that can really celebrate and partner with the craftsman who helped make the projects, and then the database that helps people find and discover new voices and talent, and nurture them to come up through the system, and then a podcast that teaches people all of the things that you wish that you would have known when you first got into the industry, but nobody. Nobody really told you about an at film. Schools are teaching you more of the nuts and bolts on how to put things together, and they don't teach you how to actually live that life, so all of those pieces that are coming together. It's really wonderful time for us and I'm super excited about what the future holds. And how can people access Kruvi right now? So crew? The is like the lice of. Of crew right so it's crew C. R. E. W. The e v Dot Com and you can just go and sign up and sign in, and it takes the place of a website for a lot of people you can have all of your videos and your social media, and all of that is included all in there, and it's kind of a one stop place for people to be able to access it. And of course catch a break. PODCASTS DOT com where you can access to live series about life during covid nineteen. Julie engine. Thank you so much for being here today. This was amazing and we will definitely be talking to you hopefully on the podcast in the future, but also not in person but zoom problems. It was wonderful. Thank you so much. For having US coming up, we're shifting gears with the Hollywood hack that grownups will love for work, and kids will love for play, but I this break. Okay Sarah. It's time for this week's Hollywood hack, which is an APP. It's called scribble together. Yes, because obviously as writers. We use white boards all the time, but we don't know win. We're going to be working together in person again, so we needed a shared digital whiteboard, and we looked at a bunch, and they all seemed complicated and scribble together as sort of like the Google, Docs whiteboards, it's simple and easy to share documents, and it's pretty cool. It's working very nicely for us. Yes, even I can figure it out, so you know it's easy. Also great for kids WHO WANNA draw with a friend or play pictionary while they're zooming or colored together while they chat, they can just go on scribbled together and scribbled together.
