Red Hat CEO Turned IBM President Jim Whitehurst Drives Cultural Change
"For too long into the red hat experience. But but how i'd be fascinated understand now yet a new culture a very different one from red hats After the acquisition talk about your own personal journey going from that dynamism of the red hat experience to the much larger organization different culture of ibm. Yeah sure i'm right in the middle of it. So i can spend a ton of time on Five hours on it or we'd spent five minutes so i'll start with a little bit. You know so what. I think i learned over time is out. I would argue. Delta airlines not was on the board of united now is incredibly well run company and it has a culture that would have killed red. Hat's red hat is a very well run company and it has a culture that would kill delta different. I'm gonna get together culture up at operating model because you're operating models really what drives cultures so it's leadership style behaviors sure banishment processes to org structure all electric culture. So i'm gonna munch those together. We had time. I can try to tease those apart. Let me just start off with those things together. A bit so in observation there is many companies have developed the operating model culture to dry standardization efficiency. Right that's what delta did the recent delta's the most on time airline at least the majors is because we spent a lotta time driving a ton of efficiency standardization. You're everything you're doing about how you take variance out and that's great for driving efficiency. Not really good for driving innovation because innovation is frankly all about driving variance in and so i got to red hat. What i thought was chaos. Lovely before i kill the i learned over. Time was just a relatively. Extreme way to trotted drive a faster pace of innovation and you know just taking the extremes the operating model delta. It's a single digit margin business where you are running very own. We wanna take in the last piece lettuce office salad. You'd get a salad. I mean you're like really really you know. It's a tough business in the software business if you get a winning product it money. Any software products gross margins are ninety plus percent if it's a winner jimmy lot of money so the question is will generate a winner and so once the innovation model that likely to try to write set of stuff where you ultimately ended up with winter. And so you know. I think for even how i spent every day at church at delta versus read different the cultures were is just the whole models are set up differently and so fast forward to that has one of the reasons why i have moved over to be. President of ibm is not because we want to drive red hats culture to be. Ibm's culture because ibm as a lot of services businesses we Mainframe hardware bunch of other things. But we want to try elements of the. I read culture in ibm. And the reason. I start off with that. Preamble and i encourage every company around. This ought to be really really chris. There is no better and worse. Culture operating model there are cultures and models that are used for different things. And here's the trick. Most companies a even red hat at both right you know we still had accounts payable processes and other things where we frankly didn't need all that innovation those standardize delta you want no innovation safety procedures before your trust me No examination there on the website you want experimentation so we're all mixes of those in it so to start off kind of coming into red hat. Everybody will most people idea are looking for breath of fresh air and a change. And i think we're trying to do some of that. But to be very very chris there elements of ibm's model. That are really important for what we do. And their elements red. Hat's model that we want to inject into ibm to change. But it's not a value judgment of better worse. It's different for different purposes. By the way. I'll say this is true in it. And i think a lot of people mess up in it they create a innovation group. That separate have no problem with the separate innovation group yet. But you can't over celebrate it like the special kids in the people who are running your european than keeping the lights on or not right and he can say hey. I'm gonna for model for these things. But they're both equally important is like a heart alone. Got gotta have both right. So i spent a lot of time at ibm talking about those things. Now what we've done from there is. We are very chris that there were three components of halter characteristics of culture. That we wanna drive ibm Entrepreneurial spirit growth mindset in radical candor. But we've also been very clear. Those are attributes. And i don't know how to implement an attribute i don't even know but when i can't do is i can exhibit behaviors. So we started. We're starting off in Stop word route. Which is it's like. Ninety percent of the prophets is probably fifty percent of the people but in the software group We're taking all of our managers breaking cohorts. Were having town halls meetings. You define behaviors that leap believe support radical candor growth mindset Upper pearl spirit and. Then we're going to be very clear on that what we expect of our people were setting up kind of bottom up rewards and incentives around those things and so i'll say you know behavior i if i'm gonna meeting in someone doesn't speak up. I will proactively ask everybody meeting before we make a decision and stuff like that or going to keep thirty minutes of every agenda free open time so people have issues talk so it's not hard stuff but you kind of put together the thirtieth those behaviors in now you start getting changed applied. The of really really involved. But i've been very crisp up front. There's kind of driving future state in seeking future state if you want to think about the opposing models not way. You know the way i talk about is. Ibm is very much. We plan yet. We get prescribed it and then we kind of execute. Where red hat we configure. We don't really plan because you're kind of configuring organization. Yup we can enable rather than really prescribing. We more engaged for executed. What

Here's correspondent adrian for ito who reports on race and identity for npr. Maria does not intend to get vaccinated. At least not right away. I definitely will be one of the people that won't take it. You know in the beginning players. She is not generally a vaccine skeptic. A discipline since this new i am not comfortable of getting it surveys. Show that kind of skepticism about the covid vaccine is widespread. Nearly forty percent of latinos told pew researchers. They would probably or definitely not get the vaccine more than half of black respondents said the same white people have also expressed hesitancy but the reluctance among african americans and latinos is especially worrying because their rates of infection are so much higher. It's it's a major concern dr keith. Norris's among an army of people ramping up efforts to ensure latinos african americans and other people colored. Trust the vaccine. He's hearing a wide range of concerns. Many stemming from a long history of racism in medical research concerned about being a guinea pig concerns about pharma and federal government. And then there's lots of social media messaging downplaying the importance of coronavirus. Norris works for ucla and is leading california effort funded by the national institutes of health to build vaccine trust. The strategy is to get clear. Concise information to black and brown communities with help from so-called trusted gers people with existing relationships in communities with high covid risk. People like tony. Wafer a longtime los angeles-based hiv educator in may he lost five close family members to covid. He's talked about that a lot as he's encouraged black friends and neighbors to volunteer for vaccine trials and now to take the vaccine is hard to say. Get getting this trial and these were people gonna help you win. These are the same white. Have been kicking your ass alway. You know what i mean. He says he acknowledges people's skepticism and meets them where they are. I tell people what are you. Won't they say well. I'm all blood pressure medicine. I'm taking central cholesterol. So you know before you've taken that pill clunk child out of thin air then they go really yeah. It was the clinical shelters. Ucla's keith. norris says this outreach. We'll take many forms in person on the airwaves and in virtual town halls. He says researchers will track. What messages about the vaccine. People respond to to see if there are certain areas that tend to have a greater impact moving people from being reticent to being willing. I'm not gonna go. Set is with sonny seattle health san diego clinic that serves a large mexican and mexican. American population fears about vaccine. Safety are compounded by language issues and concerns about immigration status. The clinic trained community outreach workers to answer questions about the vaccine the reason why this is working is because people are not relying on a government entity posed information especially due to the last four years. People rather i hear from someone that they already have a relationship with. She expects the vaccine to gain acceptance over time but she also says many of the clinics patients are already eager for the vaccine because they've spent months risking themselves in essential. Jobs have lost friends and family. Don't wanna see anyone else. Any other loved one. Have to go through that for these people. The vaccine means being able to continue to provide allies for their loved ones and to be there for them in the long run. She says that's the message. She intends to keep driving home. That's npr national correspondent. adrian florida.

That's a weird thing about check in in. Florida. Donald. So yeah. So just off the bat, that was a weird that that this happened that we had to divide our attention thusly yes.

We're going to have to presidential candidates have separate time all atop town halls on separate channels at the same exact time what I know why it makes no sense at all whatsoever. I. Answer. Like get some sort of metaphor for what this is but I can't even pull anything out you know what I mean AAA. This means that you know the to echo chambers are as such that they could be put up against each other in real time I. I don't know. Okay that yeah and then, and then you find that your metaphors fall apart. So okay let's Punch, lines to my bets ages they fall apart. Acres out there or you nationalist. Natio-. Own White nationalist whatever Nick Fan. Sure. I think. My white nationalist face is really strong. They love their Muslim podcast hosts is what we've found. Super Proud of you but anyway I get. Proud they're really proud. We call them the problems. Become. So, I actually point out just struck. So this is one of those town halls where people in the town hall ask questions one of them was like an airport hangar. The other one was like an empty auditorium everything was socially distant. It looked really safe. One thing I. Sort of liked about the format of the town halls and that I think we would normally happens in one of the town hall style debates is that the people ask a question should the moderator sort of their has maybe a little bit more time to figure out? Does this need to be fact checked does there's there needs to be a follow up I've found the desk format. Worked well for someone like Donnie that kind of spews a lot that needs to be fact check again I think Savannah Guthrie a little bit more time. Did you what did you think of this format like would it just off the bat? What were your impressions of out how? Donnie handled himself how Biden handled himself. Well I think first of all the format of that school I think that. I think it works better you know I like being. The different issues and topics and things going they are really complex issues. Do I think that either of those two guys have a real deep grasp of what's going on absolutely not but at least like to see what level of knowledge base they have, there's more of a possibility of that in a town hall type of setting. Then there isn't a two minute thing and this and that and the talking over each other whenever you know why it's very stressful. For example if you. Like they floated the idea of and then whatever. Say Like Oh, Joe, Rogan was like I'll you like a four hour? You know SORTA conversation both around the podcast whatever's like okay. Fair. Enough. Maybe Joe Rogan, not like the right host for that. But something in that format like a long form sort of debate like I dunno moderated by. Far Side fake the nation you know. I mean, honestly you've. Already, on the podcast on, you don't need to do this nobody's. Saying though like wouldn't you want to see them sit down and have to talk for like three or four hours like we do podcast multiple hours you know and you kind of go where somebody's at so. I. Think it would work better. No I I mean I think in I also think it. You said something that you don't think either of the candidates had a grasp of the policies I would like to deeply disagree with you. In the Joe Biden think this format they always talk about Joe Biden being a good retail politician and Blah Blah Blah he knows how to talk to people and It's like we haven't really seen him talk to people right because of the pandemic. But turns out that I found that to be absolutely true because you saw him making meaningful eye contact giving people long answers. You know it's like a woman who is the mother of of a transgender child stood up at an actor question about transgender laws and and all the. Danni has wrought on keeping transgender people out of the military and all that removing the word transgender from certain government websites. And and Biden gave a thoughtful answer on his position. On on these transgender laws what he would do a repeal, the ones that were invoked by by Donnie. And the trump administration and you know, and he spent a long time talking about he talked about the murder of of transgender women of color. You know he I mean, these are these he talked about it at various points. In the thing he talked about the income income inequality about. Black Entrepreneurship and expanding the pipeline of funding for black entrepreneurship he talked about. You know what he support he does not want to ban fracking. He's pretty clear about that I mean I mean you might not like that about him but he at least has a position and it's clear and it's disgust he even talked about regretting the nineteen ninety, four crime bill I mean, can you imagine regret i? Think what? What I learned from Joe Biden is that he does have positions on policies and I may as a progressive not agree with absolutely every little point..

The One lady who ever you mentioned shoulder that says white people should educate themselves on racism. That's a difficult task when they don't know that it exists. Yeah, see if it does if if their lives have never been affected by racism, they don't know where the start to look it up. Because they'll, they'll have no impotency empathy towards, and that's been the problem. If you've your life has never been affected by racism. Where do you start looking for it?

"I, forgot and I it's totally I five. Butts mine is. Years Tiffany. Oh. My God thank you even stop apologizing. Tiffany has the question, do you? Do you think that? It's easy to make fun of guys because like do. Do you know what I'm saying? You seem to be very involved and you seem to get it and I'm trying to say it without oh like he's woke. Yeah like he okay to and I. Get what you're going now. ruggles see where you are. I can see it okay. Alright halfway through I was like this might be offensive to men. I don't WanNa. Make it seem like all men stay on their phone and ignore their family and don't cater to their wife when they're losing their mind and their knee deep, who but truthfully a lot of times guys don't get it so I'm just wondering how how how are you so in tune? With it. I. Mean I wouldn't say I'm one hundred percent. There's still thinks that I do that frustration frustrating my wife a lot, but I don't know I. was my mom single mom in? So I grew up. With women so the just the basic struggles that women go through I was around that. All the time, so it was. It's not weird. I think that that's a commonality in a lot of these I. Swear to you. A lot of the dad of lagers Clinton. Edwards grew up with. A single mom I mean. I think there were a lot of them. And I think you're right. I think that makes that's A. Very insightful and I think that makes a whole lot of sense. Because you're watching your mom, your whole world, do everything yeah. Okay I kind of had this many mind blown thing when you said that because I was like I. Swear all the dad bloggers that I know that I that we are friends with have a very similar story, and it makes perfect sense. You can see the struggle you know that it is. That's that's yeah. Okay, good question, Tiffany! That was super insightful. Look at you. To get there. It's okay, but I. You know we rounded the horses. Got The carton a wagon and we brought it back over. You know it's all all good. So what's been the? What's been. So I had something happened today. That was not a big deal, but it just kind of it kind of encompass what quarantine has been like in my house, so I'll tell my little story, and then you guys can share a story. What kind of encompasses quarantine in your house? So I have a big lab mix. We don't know what she's mixed with something poodle lab, Wolf Hound who the hell knows, but she loves a swimming pool right, so she's been swimming all in the pool and. I noticed that she needed to go to the bathroom so I open the back gate, and I let her out. She comes back in and she proceeds to get back into the pool because she apparently wasn't done. And so she pisses all over the Sun Shelf in the pool and so it's like okay guys now. Everybody's getting out because the dog is pissed in it. Then that dog got out of the pool, the other dog, my geriatric dog who wears a diaper. Okay, because I'm that lady who diapers dog and she's sitting next to me as we speak, she walks over to where the other dog was. She squats down and starts to. To Shit in her diaper, and so then I see her actively going to poop in the diaper, and it's like no. No, no, no, don't poop! Don't poop so as I'm taking the diaper off, she kicks and the Shit just flings, and it's literally flinging onto the ground into the pool and I'm standing there holding a dog shit diaper. There's dog pebbles all over the place. I then have to go and get the scoop thing and fish poop out of the pool and throw it out, and then the pool is closed indefinitely. Until can figure out how you shocked dog shit out of a pool, but I kind of felt like after that happened. It totally encompassed. Quarantine. You know what I mean like. The dog kicked crap at me like it was like I shall shit in this diaper, and then I shall kick it in your face, and you will pick it up because you. It is your job like that's how I felt. Yeah, so there has to be a story of something during this quarantine that you've just been like Yep Yep sick a fork in me. That was it. You want to follow that Tiffany I. that's why I'm a cat person. Oh really. You don't have pets if I did it would be. My kids have recently gotten scared to go into other rooms without an adult. And I think maybe my anxieties rubbing off on them and maybe Mike constant fear of being murdered somebody writing out to me right right, and so when it comes to go to the bathroom, they will go unless somebody goes with them, and I'm like trying to teach them that they have to be brave, and there's nothing going to hurt them, and and chloe will literally just. On the floor if I don't get my lazy as up and go with her, and so it's like I'm in. This weird struggled daily poor times a day. I'm not joking. Do I get up and give into her fear, so she doesn't pee on my floor. Just let her be on the floor like it's. That's the only thing I can release the bathroom light off. Is it because it's dark in the room? I. It's I. Don't know I've asked her. She thinks there's bugs. She thinks that the painting is GonNa come to life. Oh, wow, that's really ghostbuster. That's what I. Did they watch that watch no. That was my first of all. I get it, but she's never seen it, and so it's just a constant struggle, and it's hard not to get upset with her. You know, but. So I. Don't know, so, I what do I, do sometimes I. Just give in. You know following through with. We've been talking about since that I'm trying to implement can be difficult sometimes, because I don't always want to get up and walk her to the bathroom. Sometimes I'm in the middle of an intense game of candy crush right I'm saying amount down on a Burrito and I'm trying to live my best life and right. So then there's pee on the floor and she's like I'm sorry. I'm sorry I'm sorry, and it's just so genuine, just unlikely to okay, but chloe chloe is. Very cute, so you know, but at some point she should stop pissing on the floor so I don't know man. I think that I think part of it could be the fact that literally you've spent every waking moment with the kids, so there could definitely be like this weird separation anxiety thing when you go into another room, especially with you and chloe cause you to have been like. Like he like it's like skin coat with her. Do you know what I mean your best friends? But literally you're together like she doesn't want to separate from you, so it could be a little bit of that because. Didn't you have a problem with dropping her at daycare? Initially. Yeah, so I'm wondering. If maybe with all the crappy covid stuff, it's like a separation thing. Is it gestures house, too? But yeah, and then somebody else said Khloe manipulates well, and that xactly so anyway, that's that's really the only reoccurring thing other than the usual asking for a snack seven hundred times a day, saying they're board asking me to play with them and then dictating the entire place session because I'm not doing it right. How Fun is that when they tell you that you're doing it wrong and it's like this imaginary. How can I do it wrong? There are no rules Brian. Can you relate to? Leuliette can relate to that as you're saying. I can just feel it. Going down my back. I guess. I didn't want to go back to back. Because I have shit story to well I broke it up. You great this one, and then I'll follow up looking to. Look Into Shit Sandwich. Sandwich. This happened just couple couple of days ago and fresh in the minds souls go that one.

"Welcome back to town hall Ohio we're talking about farmers and how they manage their operations to not only feed the world but also protect Ohio's water quality telling the story Doug beard or five USTA's NRCS Jordan Hey we're sure of the Ohio farm bureau and Erin filers who is managing the Blanchard river demonstration farms network Erin described force quickly a little bit about edge field monitoring basically capturing the water the leaves the surface or through underground tile measuring the nutrients ran it dug a part of this that's the that's really the research component or one of the key research components is the fact that you have what you call paired field sites what is that why do you do it okay appeared appeared is essentially to individual is set ups each with rage of field monitoring equipment set up on two different fields that have similar characteristics as far soils and terrain and slow and Donna it's great if we can have the same farmer operate those two different watersheds what we try to do is capture the base of condition so what is naturally coming off of that through the farmers normal method of practice and then what we can do is change of variable and that farmers operation whether be a cover crop installation whether it be a change a nutrient management whether to be a change in some other part of his production system and we can measure that impact by a comparing what we see coming off the field with that change as we can repair it back to the baseline so it's a it's a great opportunity to do great research so Jordan as you look at this edge of field monitoring what what sticks out in your mind is maybe the top one or two things that we we've learned to a half three years into this yeah I think the biggest thing we've learned with the edge of field not only fits my new or or commercial fertilizer is placing another ground so getting that many were covered up in the soil to some degree obviously of the balance between full Telligent full incorporation and then you know sometimes you'll put him there differ letterman or just on the surface so you the balance between those two and make sure that you get that those nutrients covered to some degree so I learned a lesson the first time I visited the Kellogg operation they apply commercial fertilizer and you know if if you don't know anything about agriculture say well let's just put all of our fertilizer under the soil surface or let's inject all of our maneuver into the into the ground so the Kellogg's are testing it with the commercial fertilizer of the US state learns of testing it with with liquid manure what's it cost the testing the did not just the testing the equipment I'll do that the equipment gather the Kellogg's they use strip tillage so they're putting their fertilizer out with that that type of tool bar I'm not granted there a large operation so they have just bigger equipment in general about their strip tillage barb was of gosh about a hundred ninety thousand dollars for that bar to put that fertilizer below the soil surface the the sailors with their minore operation probably in the fifty to sixty thousand dollar range and then the technology that goes on top of that to give it the ability to variable rate that new Trent he is also many thousands of dollars so that the equipment costs add up quickly and that doesn't even count the tractor that might be two hundred thousand dollars and that's gonna pull this equipment so it is a very costly endeavor to accomplish that goal so I go back to the math we mentioned at the top of the show there that basically in order to meet some some target forty percent reduction types of of goals we scene we're talking about a farmer that's losing roughly twenty five cents per acre and nutrients but fixing that problem can run twenty thirty forty dollars or more per acre to actually fix it so thus the math of how do we balance productive agriculture with water quality Doug there's a another practice that farmers are beginning to adopt and and we're learning more about planting cover crops what's a cover crop in what to do for the farmer and what to do for the water what I talk for farmers I tried to use the analogy that cover crops are like a crescent wrench they can do you they can be used to to do a lot of different things they can be adjusted to to accommodate that farmer specific objective whether it be organic matter depletion they would have billed organic matter where they want to sequester hold nutrients whether they are trying to to just stop build soil health and so are those objectives can be accomplished with a lot of different species and so what we try to do is is asset producer what do you want to do with cover crop and then we can make a specific recommendation to the farmer this far species and rates are concerned but there is a tremendous amount of interest and we have worked with literally hundreds of by the thousands of farmers who are interested in are applying cover crops in the western base someone asked the same question of you Jordan again so if this works why doesn't everybody do it yeah I mean I guess our our goal overall is that you know we're we're trying to be a conduit to all this information right you were bringing all this research information all these results and every farmers different every farmers in different situation there's there's a bunch of different soil types and capabilities in and willingness to do certain stuff and then and so what we try to do is provide a suite of things they can they can pull from so we talk about the few different buckets.

Our cameras weren't allowed inside the parole hearing room about an hour later. Sti Family walked out. I man I'm all former inmate. Johnny Dean released on Parole from Louisiana's Angola prison earlier this this year after a long battle to get out from under one hundred fifty year sentence for drug violations and that brings us back to Matthew Charles and we met earlier Matthew got out of prison in January after more than two decades behind bars on drug and gun charges a beneficiary of the newly-enacted first step act a first step toward prison reform but getting out itself is often just the first step of a long and difficult journey and here to talk about right now is Matthew Charles Matthew great to have you with us you. You and I spoke when you were locked up. I spoke right after you're elected that scene. We just showed look familiar to you yesterday with moment of freedom what what were you thinking that moment about your future from walking out. I was thinking about just being back reunited with my family and friends but the fact that I was able to walk out just was breath fresh air by all kinds ends. You were model prisoner. Your story got a lot of attention a yet. You've found yourself where a lot of guys found themselves. Things didn't always come easy. What was the biggest struggle struggle for. Let me was housing and employment all right. Well thank. You and we're glad things are working better for you all right. Let's bring our next excess. John Peacock served more than fifteen years on manslaughter turned his life around and is now the executive director of Hudson Link for higher education in prison providing education education and life skills to incarcerated men and women and helping them Reenter Society Lawrence Bartley spent twenty seven years in prison. He's now the director of the publication news inside aside from the Martial Project A nonprofit news organization focusing on the US criminal justice system Lawrence and Sean both did time here at sing sing and that brings this to Mike Capra Michael Capra who for the past seven years has been the superintendent of this facility after a long and impressive career in law enforcement great to see all of you superintendent. Thank you for for hosting is here. you job here as the Superintendent essentially that to keep the late on make sure everyone's safe to make sure your employees get home home safe at the end of the day but you realized that wasn't enough and then programs were necessary. What do you find the more programs more occupational things that you can do. How does that a change the environment well I think as a system we certainly have decline in the amount of inmates that we have you see the men that are here today. These two guys who have known for many years this year have all been part of this movement called voices from within which is just a bunch of guys who really WanNa think about tomorrow think about their children's coming in they didn't want them to file the same same steps that they have filed number one and also to make an impact on the inmates who are here to give them hope and to give them a positive role model to look for so so that our system is a little bit safer. I was surprised when I was on my last visit here talking to the guys and they they WANNA be part of the change on the when they are on the outside part of the change. They all want to be part of their think tank group of people. If you ask these guys right now how many have a college education right now most of them are going to raise their hands and so when they to get involved in looking towards what can we do the change the culture inside and out and making this inside of the silliest safer place there's so much involved and they have have some fantastic ideas and we're putting those those ideas to work so attention and showing you came here when you were sixteen yes. I was arrested on sixteen in left when I was thirty four and how did this place change for the better. I know it sounds crazy but I lived in nine maximum security prisons over sixteen years. I never met award until I got to sing and Brian. Fisher was awarded time would walk the halls and talk to us. Hey are you in school why you're not in the in really push us and I remember like it was yesterday probably eight years ago you said it to me. Hey what if we did more and it's just not a normal question from Superintendent Imagine Charity Prison to think about doing more here like college and music and theater and an introspective work to make dig deeper into what causes the be here in the first place and Lawrence. You've been out what about a year fifteen months months. He's twenty seven years in the system nine of them here here. Yes what was it like stepping the outset. It was wonderful. You know I've been dreaming about my release. Since the first day I slept on a prison kyw went on finally got the opportunity to get out you know it was like the movies have watched when you go into the future and all this technology you see and I was I I was marble by was like wow this is super. Greek you know so in doing that and and when I finally got the opportunity for Masha project to get some gainful implement employment. I didn't think that I was special but I- intentionally went out to do exceptionally well because as I was doing it for the men behind me. It was talking about the men. Come up till you walker. Let's talk about the men behind you. You know these what are you. What are you tell them. What do you tell them about life on the outside. I life outside has everything in you dreamed of everything we always dream it being as exactly what it's like but what we spend all that time in creating those programs rams that came out of our head and every step of the way we are not getting paid for it. We just toiled through it. We argued throughout all of it is worth it because those skills are transferable transferable one outside and if you do that you sit the ball high and not only doing it for yourself and your family you doing it for. Everyone went to prison uniform in the country that just wants to our as easy. It's very hard is difficult but I intentionally denied a difficulty because I can't afford to fail because of offense offense. They all fail my children fail. I can't do it and what about how society looks at you. We talked with John. About checking the box you get. You're a felon felony. I mean people ask you. Why were you here and that's going to be difficult compensation. It is a difficult conversation but I like. I think that my character speaks for itself. I am not who I was seventeen years old when I committed a crime if fact changed when I was still in my teens and I have have to suffer through a decade of incarceration when I wasn't that same individual anymore so when I'm on the outside if people look down on me because because I'm incarcerated I tell myself that's none of my business. That's their perception has nothing to do with the way I'm GonNa live my life all right it back with John Legend as well as personal reflections and final thoughts and what we've talked about here today when we return in a moment we're back at sing. Sing Sing with John Legend for some final thing I keep thinking of is the figure that ninety five percent of those locked up are going to get out some day. They're going to be on our streets and our neighborhoods with that in my what do you want to leave. Leave our viewers with. I think the key is that we see each other's humanity. I think this nation has a legacy of treating certain people like they were subhuman. I think slavery was part of the reason that that has been part of our national culture but we have to see everybody Black Brown whatever they are whatever community they come from as part of our national community think their humanity think of their families think of their emotions think of their possibilities for redemption and structure our system to account for that and every dollar we spend on prisons. Every dollar we spend on punishment is dollars. We can't spend on education on health care on on the things that makes our community stronger and let's continue to invest in things that make us stronger and stop investing so much in punishment John. You're obviously a huge important part of this conversation and so we thank you much of our conversation. Today was framed by the many questions I wrestle with during my brief time visiting behind bars and Angola prison including one that I wrote down I wrote could any of us under the right circumstances. Make a mistake that would take away our freedom and then what where do accountability and punishment and Rehabilitation and redemption begin and can they're truly be justice for all on both sides of these walls. It's a long long conversation certainly longer than one hour allows but it's one. I'm dedicated to further exploring. I want to thank John Legend Loretta Lynch and all of our panelists as well as might capper operate his team here at Sing Sing Correctional Facility for hosting this important event for all of us at NBC News. Thank you for watching and so on it. Hey it's Chris as from MSNBC every day. I come to the office and we make a television show an everyday. I think to myself there's so much more. I want to talk about and so this podcast it's called. Why is this happening and the whole idea behind it is to get to the root of the things that we see Lee out every day. They're driven by by big ideas each week. I sit down with a person uniquely suited to explain why this is happening new episodes of wise this happening every Tuesday.

Johnny Dean released on Parole from Louisiana's Angola prison earlier this this year after a long battle to get out from under one hundred fifty year sentence for drug violations and that brings us back to Matthew Charles and we met earlier Matthew got out of prison in January after more than two decades behind bars on drug and gun charges a beneficiary of the newly-enacted first step act a first step toward prison reform but getting out itself is often just the first step of a long and difficult journey and here to talk about right now is Matthew Charles Matthew great to have you with us you. You and I spoke when you were locked up. I spoke right after you're elected that scene. We just showed look familiar to you yesterday with moment of freedom what what were you thinking that moment about your future from walking out. I was thinking about just being back reunited with my family and friends but the fact that I was able to walk out just was breath fresh air by all kinds ends. You were model prisoner. Your story got a lot of attention a yet. You've found yourself where a lot of guys found themselves. Things didn't always come easy. What was the biggest struggle struggle for. Let me was housing and employment all right. Well thank. You and we're glad things are working better for you all right. Let's bring our next excess. John Peacock served more than fifteen years on manslaughter turned his life around and is now the executive director of Hudson Link for higher education in prison providing education education and life skills to incarcerated men and women and helping them Reenter Society Lawrence Bartley spent twenty seven years in prison. He's now the director of the publication news inside aside from the Martial Project A nonprofit news organization focusing on the US criminal justice system Lawrence and Sean both did time here at sing sing and that brings this to Mike Capra Michael Capra who for the past seven years has been the superintendent of this facility after a long and impressive career in law enforcement great to see all of you superintendent. Thank you for for hosting is here. you job here as the Superintendent essentially that to keep the late on make sure everyone's safe to make sure your employees get home home safe at the end of the day but you realized that wasn't enough and then programs were necessary. What do you find the more programs more occupational things that you can do. How does that a change the environment well I think as a system we certainly have decline in the amount of inmates that we have you see the men that are here today. These guys who have known for many years this year have all been part of this movement called voices from within which is just a bunch of guys who really WanNa think about tomorrow think about their children's coming in they didn't want them to file the same same steps that they have filed number one and also to make an impact on the inmates who are here to give them hope and to give them a positive role model to look for so so that our system is a little bit safer. I was surprised when I was on my last visit here talking to the guys and they they WANNA be part of the change on the when they are on the outside part of the change. They all want to be part of their think tank group of people. If you ask these guys right now how many have a college education right now most of them are going to raise their hands and so when they to get involved in looking towards what can we do the change the culture inside and out and making this inside of the silliest safer place there so much involved and they have have some fantastic ideas and we're putting those those ideas to work so attention and showing you came here when you were sixteen yes. I was arrested on sixteen in left when I was thirty four and how did this place change for the better. I know it sounds crazy but I lived in nine maximum security prisons over sixteen years. I never met award until I got to sing. Sing and Brian Fisher was awarded time would walk the halls and talk to us. Hey are you in school why you're not in the in really push us and I remember like it was yesterday probably eight years ago you said it to me. Hey what if we did more and it's just not a normal question from Superintendent Imagine Charity Prison to think about doing more here like college and music and theater and an introspective work to make dig deeper into what causes the be here in the first place and Lawrence. You've been out what about a year fifteen months months. He's twenty seven years in the system nine of them here here. Yes what was it like stepping the outset. It was wonderful. You know I've been dreaming about my release. Since the first day I slept on a prison kyw went on finally got the opportunity to get out you know it was like the movies have watched when you go into the future and all this technology you see and I was i. I was marble byles. I wow this is super. Greek you know so in doing that and and when I finally got the opportunity for Masha project to get some gainful implement employment. I didn't think that I was special but I- intentionally went out to do exceptionally well because as I was doing it for the men behind me. It was talking about the men. Come up till you walker. Let's talk about the men behind you. You know these what are you. What are you tell them. What do you tell them about life on the outside outside has everything in you dreamed of everything we always dream it being as exactly what it's like but what we spend all that time in creating those programs rams that came out of our head and every step of the way we are not getting paid for it. We just toiled through it. We argued throughout all of it is worth it because those skills are transferable transferable one outside and if you do that you sit the ball high and not only doing it for yourself and your family you doing it for. Everyone went to prison uniform in the country that just wants to our as easy. It's very hard is difficult but I intentionally denied a difficulty because I can't afford to fail because of offense offense. They all fail my children fail. I can't do it and what about how society looks at you. We talked with John. About checking the box you get. You're a felon felony. I mean people ask you. Why were you here and that's going to be difficult compensation. It is a difficult conversation but I like. I think that my character speaks for itself. I am not who I was seventeen years old when I committed a crime if fact changed when I was still in my teens and I have have to suffer through a decade of incarceration when I wasn't that same individual anymore so when I'm on the outside if people look down on me because because I'm incarcerated I tell myself that's none of my business. That's their perception has nothing to do with the way I'm GonNa live my life all right it back with John Legend as well as personal reflections and final thoughts and what we've talked about here today when we return in a moment the we're back at sing sing sing with John Legend for some final thing I keep thinking of is the figure that ninety five percent of those locked up are going to get out some day. They're going to be on our streets and our neighborhoods with that in my what do you want to leave. Leave our viewers with. I think the key is that we see each other's humanity. I think this nation has a legacy of treating certain people like they were subhuman. I think slavery was part of the reason that that has been part of our national culture but we have to see everybody Black Brown whatever they are whatever community they come from as part of our national community think their humanity think of their families think of their emotions think of their possibilities for redemption and structure our system to account for that and every dollar we spend on prisons. Every dollar we spend on punishment is dollars. We can't spend on education on health care on on the things that makes our community stronger and let's continue to invest in things that make us stronger and stop investing so much in punishment John. You're obviously a huge important part of this conversation and so we thank you much of our conversation. Today was framed by the many questions I wrestle with during my brief time visiting behind bars and Angola prison including one that I wrote down I wrote could any of us under the right circumstances. Make a mistake that would take away our freedom and then what where do accountability and punishment and Rehabilitation and redemption begin and can they're truly be justice for all on both sides of these walls. It's a long long conversation certainly longer than one hour allows but it's one. I'm dedicated to further exploring. I want to thank John Legend Loretta Lynch and all of our panelists as well as might capper operate his team here at Sing Sing Correctional Facility for hosting this important event for all of us at NBC News.

"Welcome back to town hall, Ohio, we're talking about no plant nineteen. That's the hashtag that many farmers of slapped on this year's cropping season. If you've been with us throughout the show, you've been hearing a lot about the economic consequences of nonstop rain. But there are emotional consequences as well. My co worker here at Ohio farm bureau, Jordan. Hey, wisher produces a podcast titled field day and ended up coming addition that he shared with talks with Highland county farmer and a member of the Ohio farm bureau board of trustees Nathan Brown chat about the impact of this year on farmers. Mental health. This has been something that's been really hit home to me being a first generation farmer, I didn't necessarily come from that culture background, but mental health and, and your mental wellness has been a part of my life from beginning, my brother and my mother, and my father have all had issues at one point in time. And you know something that I've struggled with in just, you know how do you how do you navigate life, you know, we're young parents. How do you know that your parenting your kids? Right. And then you know, once you throw in the agriculture and, and all the twists and turns that are thrown at you as a farmer. I see so many guys that are struggling, and they don't know where to go, and you know, we treat mental illness in this country as taboo, we don't talk about it. Yeah. It's, it's not something that may affect me, but that's not something I wanna show and in a mental wellness is the same as my physical wellness. I need somewhere to go if I need to go to have a checkup that can help me sort through my issues are usually once the tough through a lot of things. Right. They shoulder the burden of a lot of things, maybe their, their families income debt just just the day to day like physical work that's there. And then, by the way, like if they have a kind of a blip that comes up mentally are in their in their mental health shoulder that too, without actually expressing anybody, we bear so much ourselves. And, and we don't. At, like asking for help, we don't you know, I know more farmers, the farm by themselves have nobody else of that helps them on a daily basis than I know operations that are, you know, six seven eight ten people, you know, it's, it's that one person. And he's, he's the one that. If doesn't go right? He's the one to blame for if he goes bankrupt. He's one to blame for you know if his crops fail. It's all on him and that can be more than people can handle sometimes and. I've heard people say, well, if you can't can't handle the stress and get out. Well, you know, that that's not really a fair statement for anybody. Because if you had cancer, you know. You just need your job because you have. No. I mean you're going to go find help and it doesn't always have to be a professional help. I don't think you know you need to build a good support of, of peers. I mean, you know, me and my wife have one of the best relationships, the two guys for I mean, we are open and honest with each other, and it was just this weekend. We were joking around. Oh, we were in the card. Are we talking about this subject a little bit? And she said, you know, you're, you're getting pretty good with us. You mean a whole lot better hide, at the used to be what are you talking about? She's like what you're probably sitting there thinking about. Well, you know we just finished planting beans, but we got spray to do, do we've got this going on. We got cows litter just turned to blow out so we're in the process of Breedon. And then we're talking about three four five six inches of rain, come this week got, plus you got board meetings. All this other stuff, family kids, that are playing T-ball and baseball. And, you know, just trying to navigate life. And I think as a as a business owner and an ultra list, there's just more weight that is put on that person. You said it's kind of taboo, and it's tough to subject, because it's, you know, farmers generally haven't been the most expressive. But I think hopefully our generation can can help lead the way a little bit more on saying, okay hand up help go, go see somebody, you know, those guys, I say, reach out to your family reach out to your buddies. You know, put together of of group, you know that's one great thing about how you act professionals group. I mean you can meet so many guys and so many agriculture. Listen farmers from around the state and gather your network, and find people that you connect with and use those relationships. Those bonds to get through tough times, like you know mentally that you're having or whatever. And that's that's one thing I like about organization in organizations in our cultures. They bring people together, and you can.

"Welcome back to town hall Ohio opioid education is our topic today. Chad gesture of nationwide. Jennifer Martinez with the whole drug mental health board of Franklin county in the studio with us. And we were talking chat about some of the other parts of controlling opioids besides parental, and kid education. Besides law enforcement you made the point that the state of Ohio is taking this quite seriously as well. State of Ohio is a fantastic partner. And again, this is a public private partnership with everyone taking accountability. So few years ago, the state of Ohio took action to reduce the number of opioids prescribe to Ohio. And so at the peak in twenty twelve there, probably seventy pills for every man woman child in the state of Ohio that were prescribed, it is down nearly one third to about fifty pills, so it's still a lot of medicine in the marketplace. But the state's been a great partner and their leadership makes all the difference in terms of involvement in it. Both of you have made the point that this needs to be a high priority for the community. I'm thinking back three four years ago or at a higher farm bureau meeting, and the farmers are talking about the farm Bill and they're talking about clean water in Ohio, and they're talking about property taxes. And then this voice comes up and they start talking about drug abuse Cisco is farm bureau's vice president of public policy. I shouldn't be surprised, but it still set you back a little bit when farm bureau says we need to start paying attention to this. Yeah. Absolutely. And you know, part of our mission farm bureau's to strengthen our communities and a component of that. Our folks have recognized is the drug epidemic and what we're doing here in terms of this opioid crisis. So our members have made it a priority issue for the last three years and only seven or eight topics rise to being what we consider a priority issue at farm bureau, it's where we're going to put our resources where we're going to put our effort in ended has risen to that level. So much of what happens in farm bureau, the, the initial steps were taken a locally Michelle spec, who's one of our organization, directors and her counties over eastern, Ohio. They jumped on it with both feet and kind of brought everybody along. Absolutely. They were kind of the role model for how other counties. Could engage in this. The first thing we encourage everybody to do is take a look around at your community. Farm bureau is really good at that networking at using our grassroots model of actually having feet on the ground. But we encourage every folks, and we've put something out to every single county farm bureau. So they know look and see if you have prevention action alliance already organized. And if so, join their effort, there's no reason to duplicate those kind of the same thing that the board went through and saying, how do we collectively bring everybody who's working on this individually together? So we want to be part of solutions of community already has one to help strengthen that solution by using our grassroots network. And then our other major component, though, to this entire thing has been a youth where we know we have a strong point is our for H and R FFA students, we have an in with them. They're listening to the voices of the leaders of those organizations, who are who are helping them. And so we put together program called help for a hope, for Ohio, and then also came out of eastern Ohio and a local group that came together and said, we need to help educate the students about what they should be doing. How to have peer to peer conversations how to stay away from the drug themselves to begin with, but then how to have peer to peer conversations might as well, pull the adults in have conversations with them about what to look for. That might not be normally what you would look for in your household that's called hidden in plain sight. And so we have had hundreds and hundreds of students. Now, we did a statewide version of hope for Ohio. We've replicated it a road show all the way around Ohio to help those students who are active who are engaged to look at another peer and say, there's something off there. I have a conversation with them that might help in the long run. So a lot of different ways that we're using kind of that peer to peer conversation. Both in our communities and with our students in American Farm Bureau kinda saw what was happening here and it started a county. It's moved up to the state level and became a national priority as well. It absolutely has it's done the exacting. It's supposed to do communities. They were vocal and they, and they spread the word that we've got a dress this at moved up to the state, level, USDA an has let has met with our. Our county farm bureau's on several occasions. And she's now, actually moved over to the White House, so they, they recognize the work. She was doing in the rural communities and said, we need what she's doing to be replicated everywhere. And so our voices being heard at every single level in terms of we need help. We need the programming, we need the dollar think Chad for folks who may not know the relationship between farm bureau nationwide goes way back to win. We started a mutual automobile insurance company and it grew into nationwide. And we've had our hundredth anniversary. You're coming up on yours. But, but this whole community thing, and people working to help each other. It's kind of a shared value that we, we have with nationwide and foreign of your immunity is the shared value in. It's no surprise that the farm bureau is so engaged in this issue and so many others, and no surprise that. The Ohio farm bureau was actually one of the first members joined the Ohio opioid educational lines and said, what can we do so the work together on a complicated issue? Like this is all about complementing. Each other. It's not a competitive environment. It's leverage. Reaching more youth, and we highly valued, the Ohio farm bureau, and we highly value, the work that nationwide and the mental health board. Everybody's putting into this problem that we all have to tackle we've got a few minutes who wrap up to today's show, and perhaps sheer few more ideas on.

"Welcome back to town hall, Ohio. We're taping at the annual meeting of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation Jenna, what two three four hundred farmers from across the state in town to do their lobbying with legislators at the state house and talk about some of the issues and hear from our keynote speaker Liliana Esposito, she is the chief communications officer for Wendy's. And and it's been fascinating learning about this piece of the of the food chain, and how it relates to our piece of the food chain. So we'll Yana hope you're doing it as much as we are you don't work in a bubble or you have other people, and you've talked about collaborating with farmers and far Morgan ization, but who are some of the other organizations that you find yourself working with on a regular basis that that you need to be able to communicate with and maybe sometimes negotiate with and and get along with we work with a lot of different organizations and individuals and. Some of that is by choice and some of that is not by choice. But you really as a where a publicly traded company, which means we have shareholders. It means that we have other stakeholders that are interested in our business. We're a major employer. So obviously, we have an impact on a lot of different communities and states around the country, and we have to work with elected officials and policymakers in those areas, we also are a restaurant company, we're bringing food to to to families. And so there are there are parents, there are bloggers there are all sorts of folks and organizations that are interested in what we do what we find at farm bureau is there's a lot of people interested in what we do too. And we work with them sometimes not only because we want to but we might have to and one of the challenges we run into quite often. And and it's not just farm bureau. It's not just Wendy's society. There's a lot of people who were single issue people strip if you're not on their side on animal welfare. It doesn't matter. If you do every. Something for the community and and pay every hamburger flipper twenty seven dollars an hour. They're still going to not be happy with you. How do you try to reach out to these single issue people? And and and maybe at least Ford some level of conversation. I I I think that you have to work with people that you don't necessarily agree with if if the only groups that you engage with are those that agree with what you already believe then it's going to be a pretty tight bubble there. And so you may not agree with everyone that has an interest in your business or in in what you're doing on a daily basis, but I do think you have to listen, and my general approach is if you are willing to have a reasonable polite, respectful conversation with me, I will have the same conversation with you. Now that cuts out a good number of groups that aren't willing to do that. And so I think single issue doesn't necessarily mean single-minded, I think there are some single issue organizations. That just have a very specific focus, but they're willing to work with you on how to get to the same end goal. Even if you do it in slightly different ways than what they might have originally proposed. So for instance, there might be an environmental organization that ultimately what they want to do is provide for the cleanliness and the safety of the water supply. If the only thing that they will talk to you about is a one specific way to make that happen, then you might have a hard time coming to some sort of a collaborative approach. But if they're willing to be open minded about a variety of ways that you could get to that same shared goal. I take that conversation. I take that conversation any day. And so there are organizations that are willing to have conversations with you. And again, their approach might not be what yours would be. They may not start from a place of a lot of understanding about what you do every day. But I think that's an opportunity to engage in. Sometimes we just have to put our own biases aside about those organizations or individuals and listen to them as well. What advice would you have for farmers who we we? Frankly, we have to evolve we know that for my lifetime and every generation before me, the key crucial food question was do we have enough to eat? Now. We are fortunate enough that yes, we have so much to eat. We can worry about how my raising beef cattle impacts the Guatemalan tomato grower. And we have the opportunity to look at social Justice and environmental issues. So how do we bring ourselves along? And agriculture to recognize that people want to have a say in what we do beyond just the food. We put on their play. You talked about the importance of advocate, advocacy, and obviously you're here on day. And so that advocacy is taking the form of having direct conversations with legislators, and that's incredibly incredibly important. Not the only way that you can be an advocate. And so for instance, there was a there's a pretty sir here in Ohio that we were visiting with just a couple of months ago, hog producer, and he was building a new housing facility a couple of years ago, and one of the things that he did all on his own certain. No government mandate or anybody telling him he had to do. It was he put plexiglas viewing pains in the barn. And what it allowed is that anybody from the community or a reporter or anybody else could come in see how he was raising hogs without obviously having to go through all of these safety challenges that you would have of having an outside person. Enter that facility. I think that's a great example of how you can look at your own operation and say, how can I.
