China Restricts Transportation Out Of Wuhan To Slow Coronavirus Outbreak

"Chinese officials have announced a drastic step to stop an outbreak of a new virus there. They're suspending transportation out of the city at the heart of the outbreak. According to Chinese State state media starting Thursday passenger transport in the city of Wuhan will be shutdown temporarily and no one will be able to leave without quote. Special reason reason this move comes as the head of the World Health Organization. Says he needs more information to decide whether this outbreak should be declared a global health emergency. NPR's global health correspondent in. EISMAN is here in our studio Henry High also so tell us a little more about John I mean why are Chinese authorities focusing so closely closely on this tiny city so on is a large city. Roughly eleven million people in central China. And it's where early last month people. I started getting sick with this new virus coming down with symptoms like fever and severe pneumonia and since then the number of confirmed cases has ballooned to over five hundred including cases across cross China and in fact traveled with the virus have even reached several other countries including the US but the bulk of confirmed cases are still in Wuhan. Okay so what more do we we know about this. Plan to limit travel out of the city. I mean how sweeping is it. Yeah the details are still sketchy but it sounded like a pretty intense move. According to Chinese state media Starting Thursday morning city passenger buses subways and ferries will be suspended as we'll be flights and trains out of Wuhan and there's this provisions that citizens who want to leave need to provide quote special reasons we don't know what qualifies as an allowable reason how it will be enforced and how unusual is his a step like this when it comes to trying to contain disease to shut down the city basically well. I've checked with several experts on infectious disease outbreaks. And the consensus. It's very unusual to take such a broad step and also hearing a lot of concerns. This could hurt the local economy. It could erode the people in Wuhan's trust in officials and the health experts. I've spoken with also. Don't think this is likely to be a productive way of stopping the spread of the virus. Meanwhile the World Health Organization is considering whether to call this outbreak and international global health. Emergency Rate Right and there was a meeting today to consider taking that step but at the end of it the W. chose director-general her general. Tao's UNOM Gabri. ACIS says said. He needs more information in particular. He wants more evidence about how infectious viruses. How is it actually actually spreading for instance. Are these cases that have been confirmed in the last several days. Are they people who were initially infected or has the virus gun on to infect third or even fourth rings rings of people so the Emergency Committee is going to be meeting tomorrow to discuss this more. Okay he needs more information but how transparent is China being about this whole outbreak. That is is always a concern. It's been a concern in the past. He said at a press conference today that this time they are being communicative all right. That's N._p._R.'S EISMAN. Thanks a lot to do it.

Sorry Connie you. You lost her son to suicide when he was just twenty one. She's published a memoir including his letters and quotes called finding blossoms in the darkness. We're going to be talking about the book bereavement and how to find peace. My son was born born here and he was very very gentle. Gentle boy from the beginning he was was a great day student he he loved nature here. He loved Anima in the he was always caring about homeless. People handicapped people. This is the F- but let them the problem view was he could not step as a child he had the slipping disorder as a baby and it was really hard and painful but at the age of fifteen sixteen to the puberty he sick at emory them recalled it in clock just stop working and he could not the Stevedore Lovie van to Mayo Clinic. We went to Boston Dan McLay because they they're known for a sleeping disorder. Clinic was famous hi miss and I would go back and forth and at the end they told us that the there is no queue they have never seen and a case like Choubey. They had one but it was not the end as by that all by then you you mean buddy was nothing left in him. He was so skinny he he couldn't walk properly and he looked so old for his age and then Spain the hit the pain quote entitlement then more so he couldn't sleep a tool and I think they didn't ever property diagnose him also to realize what actually was going on. This is way to make us understand the security and read them. The way it works with light and son is is the inner clock. It tells them to sleep Tom to wake up. You've been was not working as I said and they just didn't know how to fix it. They they did not have the knowledge they did not know and they did so many different whatever would they told us we. We followed so many different ideas this way that way we tried it or we tried it all but nothing worked for where you've been in. He was on a lot of medication still. He couldn't sleep he would he would go to coma. It was not a sleep deep coma bacall it coma. We had no other name for it. he would just between ten ten fifteen twenty the last year of his life. I would say Iran ten months. Maybe he would collapse very rare. It doesn't matter if you could have been in a baseball stadium home or a hockey stadium and the noise and everything it didn't matter he would go to to that coma or fourteen thirteen to fourteen fifteen hours and he would not move just flat on his back back so he lost a lot of muscles the pay he suffered so much when he was younger was he able to you go to school or anything or have any sort of normal life yeah yeah he had. He tried your he had normal life semi normal life he would contra Miss School. He would take a nap because that was the time he could could sleep and then wake up and be up all day it till morning and go to school but he still managed to study and their door activities and his friend witless friends and then he was a happy boy he was really a funny way and take care of his pets. He had turtles. We had rabbits. We had dogs. We had Cabbie had the mini ruling our home. He managed that but at the age sixteen around sixty the pain was so severe he managed to go to school. He managed to go go to college but then he couldn't do it anymore. That did this impact on you. My God it was horrible. It was a nice man. It was a nightmare every night. I had to look at his dead. Body is body was just warm he was he was dead. Uh nothing light on no more no Nutley and every morning stock the told me we have have to wake him up at certain time to send a message to the brain come on is making time you have to get up and that was the huge challenge he was like that he had the a lot of like morphine morphine day. Give them. I don't know and put them to sleep so they do surgery. It was like that he couldn't he couldn't wake up. It was a challenge every day. I had to wake him up. I had to have been to dress up. Take a shower right away. Take him out to get fresh air to helping the fatigue goes no but the fatigue would take for awhile and then he would be a bit bitter but the pain was always there when he was twenty-one Sarah Utah Doc Noodles Tim. Yes yes so. How did you find out about his death. You were going to Boston for the last not chuck the less tests they. They told us that they could be a chance. They came up with a new idea so we've been there ever planning to go there for four days and he you had the program the Horford taste whatever they were arranging for him to do the night before he called me and he had a serious conversation Tim with me. He told me I'm going for you and you me love life he. He just loved life. Is it ongoing for you if they tell me that is this much and he put his finger to get this much hope and it takes ten years for me to get better. You know how much I love life. I do I do it. I go to rely too but but if they say there is no cure a want you to understand. I cannot take this pain. I would finish my luck in them. Keep them ask ask you understand that was saying no. He said you cannot be selfish. Money I go to Spain because of you. You know I'm I'm dying. Oh you know is a matter of time not even two years. Maybe a year I just WANNA finish it event event for all this stuff to Boston. After Weekday called us we had the conference call and then he started was very very fond of you because you've been helping him to research. Tell him about the feeling healing had happened with a research and he said to you being you being begun. No there is no queue what the cannot give off. We still try and you music. Thank you very much. I know there is no curie. Thank them and then the stamp forty hours. He was gone so you does your son to suicide how did you how did you deal with that initially because it's something that I'm sure in. Many people just can't imagine no well. I always say because a lot of parents talked to me. They ask me hard. I did it in high managaed and this this book is really is about my journey with my son what we went through before uh-huh and then what I went through after an how I could make it losing the time is the most I mean is unbearable. Then there is no word for that and then through suicide. It's even is absolute. Hell could use thing I did. I do east. Did I do everything I could have done. Was it my fault. Could I have done these could have done that way. I didn't feel it. Why didn't notice anything I met many parents yeah and after human was gone. I don't remember anything. I don't remember that ended the Auburn through such a shock that the damaged my short term memory. That's like one as you can. You repeat again innovate in it was absolutely a nightmare I for me. I'm sure it's the same for every parents when he was going to do that. How did he feel was. He afraid huck would have done that. He could have asked me I would have I would have done it. I wouldn't care about what losses you know but the fear of his feeling they didn't do it at home. He had a place chose place a beautiful place and he planned it own perfectly. How what was the feeling when he was going. He opened the door twelve o'clock midnight. He start walking. What was he thinking when he was putting issues on the notes and everything and win in that killed me an I'm sure for every pence is to see how how other people reacted to what happened so friends and family a lot of my family. nobody was really could get how serious human illness was. Nobody could understand. I couldn't understand where this is coming from. So when that happened they were all in shock shock and they they they my family. They news you being as a happy boy as a smart board and he he he was a great. Excuse me all this stuff was a shock to them to and now but the thing is for them to protect me and at the same time protect themselves. They don't talk too much about suicide suicide. You know they don't talk because they were thinking. Maybe they make me feel guilt guilty and I'm sure during causing they love jibbing. They grew up together. One of them told me I was very mad as you boy did he do it and then then he wrote the Book Doc. He wrote an email to me beautiful image he said Nah. I understand why he did it. I would have done the same so this is. The reaction people don't talk it did much you know not openly state is the same the steelers this. Why do you think people find it so difficult to talk about suicide. The General Enron said the they feel if they talk they opened a door which is so painful to parents. Don't WanNa do that. They WanNa protect the parents and at the same time for them is difficult to some are it angry some and his best friend and couldn't talk to me. He kept on saying off say jewelry. I could ask you if you call me. I could have gone UNOM saves you being so you know it's a lot of dealing with a lot of guilt is not not less than pain is the same thing guilt is a killer. Shame is Akila. What would you say to other parents. Who've been through what you have. If I met the lady had thought there was killed really in a horrible so I met this lady and she was asking me the same question I told live for me. I know that there is life. After a year we going to be within our always around the house is not that narcan vanish and then I I showed her lithograph my son he wrote and I find it after he was gone. I said look this is what my sunset and this is just before. He was leaning he could in somewhere else. You been somewhere else. Twas not here. He was Sambas could not understand it but I know he had his own way to connect when she read that she suiting my my daughter is a cities is what you thought it doesn't matter my child your child and she wrote that note and she said I'm going to put it in my Wallet Souvenir. I opened my wallet. I can see this and it gives me comfort. This is where my my daughter is. I tell parents my own experience. Everybody has find find their own way but it seems that giving them hope and cottage and sharing you means northern letter helps a lot because I've been in many patents this way I said just be open. Just be open and believe Universe is not the cool universe verse things happen. We do not know this is the journey and I share some of you. Minister old they go to the website our foundation website and they you get a lot of relief. They love it and it helps. This is why I put this book together and at the same time a promise to my son he wanted wanted me to share these. Yes and tell us more about the book. The title is finding some in the darkness which I love and this. This is my experience through that horrible pain that darkness. I find a PAT AH I find guidance through my my son's note. This is the way it is all his nose is about the love encouragement and there have faith in unknown and believe and just be open so this book is about that I have taught my story my journey and then after so it's a combination ready pop memoir but it's also some of the letters that he left you with that right and also some of his quotes. How did you feel initially sharing those in what may have felt like very private letters sort of with everybody now. I I said it in the book. It was very difficult for me really difficult difficult because that was the only thing I had from him. You know nothing is and what I did. Beat those notes. I got some notebook blank. No and I put those notes. I wrote those notes for myself. I self from Juby at mom. This is it is it mom mom mom and put the seekers I put photos so so this was a conversation he's having with me he somewhere else for and he's giving me all these notes and writing to me. This is the way I started I did and then it was a promise. I kept you me. It was really really hard but one morning I knew I had to do it. I got the feeling link mom. That's it do it and start. Doing it took me. A long time. took me a long time. It was not easy at it was emotionally. It was is a really really hard because I had to go back and put everything I wrote everything by hand and yeah it was was difficult but I had the desire in my heart to help. That was my desire and a promise these these two. Can I ask you as well not too long ago. We had world suicide prevention day yeah. What if anything do you think we can do to to prevent suicide would say because I my case was different. Houben told me but but because I have been talking to many mothers or fathers they had no clue there will say our yeah our child was Deprez is quiet these that but we never imagined I would say spend time with your case. Let them talk hock them. Give them law encouraged them. Do things within it helps a lot. Make make victim no that you understand their feeling. Make make them know that you want to support them and you are there for them. I think that that is very important and is there anything that you'd say to anybody. At the moment to you. Struggling would say never other give up hope never give up as we can never give up all we do our best to our best. I always say retail in do whatever we can do. There is in university but I don't want any parents feeling guilty. I don't want any pans feel that I'm a loser. I failed my son because that's what I will. I fail my son. I could have saved my son if if if if so be there for your child absolutely Peter Understan- Lavin recorded then at least we don if God forbid then that happened. We won't blame ourselves so much as I said in the book.

Everyone I'm Christiane Amanpour working from home in London as local and national governments around the world wrestle with reopening their economies some of the most popular businesses like music and sports face particular risk here in Britain for instance. A new survey shows the two thirds of those polled feel uncomfortable returning to large public gatherings and in the United States. Less than one in four would head out to a major sporting event if restrictions were lifted. Tomorrow Tennis Great Roger Federer Sees Opportunity in this crisis that goes to the very heart of gender equality on core particularly right now given how this pandemic exacerbates the gender issue of court. More women are on the front lines of this corona virus response as essential workers. Meanwhile women also apparently losing more jobs than men over all and they're suffering more abuse at home under lockdown now our first guest tonight in an exclusive joint interview a perfectly placed to discuss equality in this sport and of course a lot more tennis legend.

You know off off work and off the court about finely tuned. I've had my fair a fifty breakdowns over the last years. It's been it's been tough. Obviously tougher for everybody just not but it has also given us the opportunity to you know. Spend time and a lot of time at home with with my family. Which with my job in the traveling that we usually do. I don't always get that opportunity. So that's been really nice and and challenging at times trying to teach and educate my children which she know. Our teachers usually Do that foras. It's IT'S BEEN. It's been hard as well but I've enjoyed large large parts of it is being been quite specials. Have in my family as well but obviously I'm yet talk not able to go out and socialize and do things aside from the the tennis unspoiled which obviously is an important part of our life is just living really an on going out to restaurants and you know having your usual freedoms and not having them as has been has been. Let me ask you Billie Jean because not only have you been a champion for so many years but you understand very very well. The psychology of what it takes to keep keep up your game face so to speak. How do you think the younger generation of players are coping and how it might affect them post lockdown when you can get back to tournaments and the kind of rigorous training that goes into that? Why when they do get back to play. We're GONNA find out but right now. It's a great time to meditate to actually have some negligence or injuries. Let them ill. A lot of times. Players are Under the gun to keep playing for the rankings and whatever so this is a chance to heal and also I think to think about what it means to be the best you can be and that is. I rolled big on on the mental emotional and physical and I think the greatest players in the world have always been does matter what generation that had been the strongest emotionally and. I don't think a lot of kinds of players with those like the mental emotional enough because metals. What you think emotions what you feel. So I'd take some time to maybe talk to a psychologist about that but I think it's really really important to have reflection time and also what are your new goals. You've gotta come out of this. It's going to be different and you've got to out okay. So you've led led me into the sort of headline of what we want. What I sort of introduced before before? Welcome you want so reflect and adapt so I WANNA ask you. We mentioned that Roger. Federal has has put out a feeling. Maybe it's a trial balloon. I don't know but it's about the idea of combining the women's and the men's tour so let me just read the tweet and get you both to talk about it. So a few days he he said just wondering am I. The only one thinking that now is the time for men's and women's tennis to be united and come together as one. Andy Murray Your Mail player. What do you make of Roger Federal saying that? Now what do you think he means and what might be the result of that tweet well? I'm assuming something I'm not on the ADP cleric But I'm assuming it's something they may have been discussing Over these last few weeks and months about the possibility of AIDS WTI. Managing this is something. Obviously Billie Jean has been wanting to happen for forty fifty years you know. She's the one that really had the vision for all of this. You know we need to remember that. But I think it's great. If if more of the male players are seeing it as a positive step for the sport I think We have a very unique sport in that. We have the men and the women competing at the the biggest competitions together. And that doesn't really happen. In any of the other Global Sports I see that as a big positive we have equal prize money at those events which I think is tastic and I think that's very attractive to sponsors and to the audience. We have pretty much a fifty fifty kind of audience split between men and women which again is rare across sports. And I think all of these things are things that we should be celebrating and the sport and You know sometimes the on and there's a lot of infighting that goes on with with these things and I don't think that should be. The case is obviously going to be some issues potentially with with a marriage as well. But you know it's definitely I think a step in the right direction to start these start these conversations so so you obviously agree with some of the other top a tennis players on the male side due to rough on Dr but nick opposes it. I want to ask you because obviously I wanted to get you on this. You have spent your whole career blazing that trail for equality and you did start out wanting both tours to somehow get together. Are you pleased that this is happening? Now you see just opportunity or any pitfalls. How do you view this floating publicly by Roger Federal something? You've been lobbying for for decades on thrilled that Roger brought it up because the top male players bring something up people. Listen and I did have a chance to talk with Roger and we talked about it. He said the reason he even thought about. This was because he finally had some space and time to reflect and think about the sport but what tennis people have to understand this. We need to get along and we were much stronger much stronger as any said if we're together from sponsorship opportunities in we can grow but what we have to understand that we have to stay together as a sport is not competing with inner sport like a lot of tennis. People think our job is to be together so we can compete against the other entertainment in other sports. I don't think people realize you know we're in this business and I think it's very important where together that we're not an acquisition the WTO would not be an acquisition. We'd be a full partner in this arrive to make sport better and more valuable okay. So that's really interesting the way you put that. Because obviously there's also among some of the pioneering women in the sport some concern that this might be really great but it also might yet again if it's an acquisition and not a business merger on equal terms it might frame. The women's game are within again a male construct. Do you see both of you want to us. But is there a way to do this without getting subsumed by it what I think the ATP and the Wgn? Everyone's been talking right now to try to help with with nineteen and we've been talking for a while on certain issues through the years but I must say. The leadership of both are much. More interested in combining a partnership. So I think anything's possible if we stay positive in work through each point by point by point like you always do in negotiations But can you imagine how strong would be if we could negotiate one voice? Cianci on that cha-ching Note Andy. Murray certainly some in the mail in men's tennis a concern that they wouldn't get as maybe as much cha-ching so to speak. Do you see a struggle from other men in your in your in your sport to try to get this done and because I presume you want to see it done yeah I mean yeah. Definitely some some potential for that. I mean I've had sometimes conversations in the past when there's been prize money increases within the sport where you know. Let's say the fresh round losers check has gone from the man went from eight thousand to ten thousand dollars and the women's went from six thousand dollars to ten thousand dollars and I spoke to some of the male players about that who were unhappy because the prize money was equal and I said well would you. Rather there was no increase at all and they said to me. Yeah actually and I was like well. You know that some of this sort of the mentality that you're working with these in these discussions were over. That she'd rather make less money just so they're not an on an equal fitting with them with some of the female players so there will be some some challenges but I think When you have obviously a lot of the top male players now starting to discuss it and talk about that. That's definitely very promising but I think it's really important. I think in these negotiations that you know when it comes to this key decision makers right now and tennis pretty much all of them are men and I think that when these discussions happen. That's quite important not just to see this merger through like a man's eyes and to bring more women into the decision making positions so that everybody's voice gets heard. Everybody gets protected in these discussions and I think if that happens we have a huge potentials as a sports to I already think is a very special sport because of what we already have but I think it could be. It could be even better just quitting. That's really an important point to make sure that women are at the table. Obviously but just quickly if you can't in the potted version of the original nine when you basically forced an issue and you made women's professional tennis a reality we have fought so hard people have no idea to get to where we are right now and as. Andy said we don't have more women who are in decision making positions. It won't be probably even but there's a lot of men just like Andy who believe in us. I find that men who have daughters like and he has two daughters in the sun. Roger and I talked about it. He has two daughters and two boys so it is possible. It's all possible that we have to keep the vision. You always have to keep the vision like we had the nine of us and we signed a one dollar contract with Gladys Elvin. We had no idea what was going to happen. The latest went and got a sponsor we had no infrastructure. Three months later we start our journalists. We all out and we made it happen but we can all do this. If we work together for our sport and realized were in we have to stay together so we can compete in this world of entertainment. I think tennis people always gone inside. So much in worried about the factions a winning over this one with intense. And we're not the biggest sport in the world but we are unique. Like Andy said that we have men and women and from a PR point of view. I think that is a huge plus because the world is going towards equality slowly slowly every generation but every generation has to continue to fight for this and I think this is the time is just right because we have space were not playing tournaments and With Raj bringing it up in the dollar agree that hasn't always been the case of N. He's always always been in there for us. In champion. You know the game in so many ways and understand so much about everything really. I can tell listening to him that we just have to weigh the make. This merger happened and it will people realize how how much good it will do. So let me just follow up with you on that because You know without wanting to burnish you with a halo. Many women in the sport do look up to you with with. Thanks I guess for being a big big champion and I wonder is it because your mother was such an influence on you is your coach growing up and obviously as your mother. You are the first male professional player to have a female coach. Many MORAS MO- obviously is. Billy says you have to girls. What is it that kind of made you see the need for fairness and living level playing field yameen? That really started when I got female coach. Actually because when I came onto the tour I never saw any female coaches around. It was not to be honest. Something I thought about doing. Just seen mail coaches on the. I should also have a mail coach and then is actually at Darren. Kale is an Australian coaches working with Simona. Halla one of the best female players in the world. Just not he suggested. Why not look at a female coach him when he said I thought was of course why not. I was coached by my mom when when I was young. I had a very good relationship with Ultimo Rizova who billie Jean might know she. She took me on a few tricks when I was very young and I always got on very well thirty to and when I did then employed female coach. I realized you know this isn't this isn't how it normally is. Every time lost a match. My coach was getting blamed for it. and I never had that with any of my previous coaches and Emily Ramirez. No was a former world number one at Grand Slam champion and tastic Claire. Extremely qualified to to coach. And and that was when I realized there was. You know this was a problem and you start to see more and more and that was when I start to talk to my Mama. Little bit more about it too. She someone who's inspired. I think by Billie Jean's work and on. Yeah I started to to take more of an interest in it and see that it was was an issue that needed to be resolved was within the score and that was really where kind of started for me. So let me get back to the covert issue. Because you're also I think both of you interested and working on trying to support some of the lower ranked players who are not as well often not as okay during this complete. Shut off of this sport. I mean many people don't know that it's not just the famous names. It's so many hundreds of other players who live from hand to mouth tournament to tournament. And they don't have the wherewithal. Also what are you doing to try to help help their kitty and let me ask you? I? I mean they have set up a tennis player. Relief Fund to help the players ranked between two hundred seven hundred in the world. Because they're not making any money just now like like all of the players are not able to to support themselves so and I think that was a positive initiative. There's there's also been some resistance to that from from some some players as well you know but I have given some money to to to that fun to try and help some of the the tennis players. Hopefully there might in a few months time. You know there might be some events that we can put on his well to help. Raise some more money for for those players because they'll be the ones feeling the most and the players ranked that ranking bracket will also be the future of our sport as well they'll be young players coming through just now that will go onto be Grand Slam champions and the number one top ten players in the world so yeah. It's important that we we tried to support those now and any way we can green on the issue of for instance Serena Williams. Who's trying to beat the record of Margaret Court in Grand Slams? You just tweeted this week. Really sweet picture of when you first met the Williams sisters thirty two years ago just quickly. What does this timeout mean for that kind of dream? What could that could that? Could that put pay to it yet. Another year. Well you can look at it two ways. I think you have to look at it as a positive. You'd have to figure out what you need to do. If I were Serena the one thing when you're an older player is you have to be more fit than you ever thought possible. I playing dollars forty and I remember sometimes playing against the player that was half my age or or two times their ages. Still less than I was so you have to be extremely extremely bit and empower Serena with this time off I would enjoy my baby daughter and my husband but I also would be absolutely just from visible point of view. Just driving myself in being absolutely disciplined. It'd be so fit when so when the tournament started up again. You definitely can be ready. But I think that's the most important thing for Serena because once she starts playing matches pro she's amazing and of course Andy played mixed with her so he knows well exactly. Yeah and I was Gandhi as well. How do these cancellations affect your career and your level won't last night? I played was in the middle of November so I haven't played a match for six months and I haven't actually a tennis ball for the last six weeks of being at home but I have no idea really and I don't think many of the players do know how it will affect them. I tried to use this time to to get myself in the best shape possible to try and get my hitch stronger. I've had multiple operations on the hip so trying to give that more of a chance to to heal but also to to get stronger while and I'm physically in really good shape but being able to use the bike and I have some whites home which has helped. Yeah I'm just trying to get myself in really good shape so that when we do get the opportunity. My Body's ready and in the meantime as you say being staying with your family this. This particular instagram contribution has gone viral. Showing you in your In Your instagram post. When your daughter's want you to play dress up and put on a skirt I tried to explain. It was a kilt not a skirt but they assured me it was definitely a skirt. And there's the picture of you in your skirt they won. They won that argument when they went. Most arguments was my doses foreign too but yeah they've already got me wrapped around their finger so Yeah it's you know. They're the sort of things that you get as a dad when your home they actually they said on morning and then when I did on the just said Oh daddy look silly taken off but anyway I wrapped my life is about my dad too so I get. I know where they're coming from talented. The fathers of believe in their daughters as much is their son. Well this is brilliant Billie Jean King Andy.

Fdic in two thousand and one thousand nine hundred venture capitalists had another blockbuster year they invested more than one hundred and thirty six billion dollars in US based companies but now there's the coronavirus pandemic and it has brought on economic calamity. So what's can happen to all of that money? Invest it and all of those businesses. I'm poppy harlow in this week. I'm boss fouls I talked to venture capitalist arlan. Hamilton and backstage capital. Arlen has had a remarkable journey from being homeless at times sleeping on the floor of the San Francisco airport to running a multi-million dollar venture fund clearly. She knows a thing or two about resilience her story on the latest episode of boss files. Wherever you get your podcasts. They suck up do you. But at the same time they hate you. That's Peter Bogdanovich. I'm Ben Mankiewicz host of Turner Classic Movies I ever podcast. The plot thickens. I'm still here by Don in the seventies director. Pierre by Donna. Vich saw now. He's sharing his truly off the charts crazy. Hollywood stories exclusively for the plot thickens. I'm still Peter Bogdanovich hosted by me then magazines subscribed for free now on broadcast and there's a TC dot com slash podcast to learn more is General David portraying who led troops in Iraq during the two thousand three war and later also coalition forces in Afghanistan. He then went on to lead the CIA and is now global chair of the New York investment firm. Kk are so he is well placed to know what makes a good strategic leader and whether wartime lessons can be applied to fighting pandemic. He talks to our Walter Isaacson about it. General David betrayers. Thank you so much for joining US Chris. To me with you thanks falter. You've talked often about the principles of strategic leadership. What of those and how to May apply to this case? Well I think there are four tasks of a strategic leader in in this setting. Certainly the strategic leaders include the president those in Congress the Fed And the governor's As well given a federal system that we have in. The forecast are to get the big ideas. Bright and by-in-large. I think that there has been convergence around these thing ideas about what to do even as we are racing to develop a vaccine in the therapeutic treatable second to communicate the big ideas and the progress in Uh implementing them to the population us that they know the status. They know it. We still need them to do And they know how to go about activities as safely as is absolutely possible to oversee. The implementation of the mega ideas is the third task in. This involves everything from the metrics which have to be absolutely forthright and grounded in data The example that's provided the energy the inspiration The driving of the campaign plan which would include. First and foremost I think the dramatic increase intesting and the dramatic increase required in contact tracing and then the final task that is sometimes overlooked which is generally formally asked to be done which is to sit down and determine how the big ideas need to be refined On minted whatever so that you can do it again and again and again because early bird from the early experiences of states that are beginning to take small steps back to economic recovery And we're going to learn Whether or not they should do that even if they haven't had the fourteen days of the down trend That is a feature of the White House proposal in the one of the Governors Ann Arbor. So that's the process I think of strategic leadership And I think again having arrived at these big ideas that challenged now is to make sure that everyone understands them that you have sort of a relentless communication of what these big ideas are and then in even more relentless oversight of the execution of that. You talk about relentlessly communicating with clarity. Do you think we've been effective at communicating clearly about things like show do wear a maps county yet testing. What type of testing we need to do or do you think they'll ways to improve the single messages. We should be trying to get out. Well I think there's always room for improvement in in whatever endeavor you're engaged in and I'm sure that we will look back and see that there have been cases where there have been deviations from this sale minded emphasis On the steps that need to be taken while also acknowledging Walter that in a federal system that has fifty states with big differences between them in a number of situations. I mean the dispersion of the population in a a western state compared with the density of that ovulation say in southern New York and New Jersey is very very striking. Therefore there will be some differences in L. A. The reduction of the restrictions plays out. So what message should the American people take from? The fact the president has said he won't wear Man's. The vice-president didn't wear lost. Well I hope the message is not that they should wear a mask in a public place. that for example if you're riding the subway in New York or uncrowded straits to they become proud and again or in other situations where you can't maintain that physical distancing that we have all now memorized at six feet or further That you should actually do what it is that they are doing. Perhaps ideally I'd hope founded on some Data that they're being tested frequently and there's enormous safeguards at all the rest of this but at the end of the day again strategic leaders get paid to provide example as well as all of these other actions when it comes to oversee the execution of the big ideas that we have discussed in which they are the ones of course Who those out to the. Us public. Do you see an overarching strategy at work. Well do Again as I have described the White House Framework I think is very solid In fact if you look at the National Governors Association Approach They actually comparing contrast every single. Run of the different Significant proposals that is out there. And they are all roughly again. The same they all involve initially break in community transmission by essentially the lockdown. That we've all been experiencing. And then when the data shows you certain indicators these are the metrics and again you live and die by metrics just as we did combat. So we've got to follow the data and we have to adhere to again the guidelines certainly modified for the states and municipalities and their conditions Take the actions if and only if you have seen fourteen days And then you go to the next step and then fourteen. More the next and so forth Until you are largely back what used to be a normal noting that it is going to be a new normal and that I do think that business and consumer and citizen behavior will change some of it in certain respects forever As a result of this terrible and amick experience we. We're going through but on. Most of the governor's totally frustrated That they don't have the testing Facilities that need. It certainly seems to be that in a bipartisan basis. I think it's accurate to say That again democratic and Republican governors have stayed in that they would like to have more assistance with Jesse Nell again to be fair. This very very hard government workers we say To dramatically increase this and noting that a lot of the materials for these testings and various equipment in ball is not produced in the United States. There's a huge reliance of course on a Chinese manufacturing in a lot of these different ways and there is also a huge reliance on what was called just in time logistics where you don't want to have huge warehouses because that all costs money as just as businesses happened some other cases with slim. Del Need the warehouse down. Because there's a confidence that enterprises you can just have them deliver more and more rapidly than what is normally the case and of course if it's a global crisis Everybody is shutdown and that particular approach demonstrate certain vulnerabilities and challenges is the administration using the defense production. Act effectively in your opinion should be taking an approach more like we did in World War Two. That's a tough question obviously has been used. I think has just twice formerly but the threat of it has also been used and I think that's been used to reasonably good effect but again at the end of the day alter It's not a subjective judgment. That should guide us. Here is actually as my father used to say when it run. Branko her report card results boy and it was the same in Iraq. Remember my great mentor. General team coming out to a rock whereabout months five and actually we're starting to see a positive trend but it's still too early and he tells me he said you know you have a public relations challenge here. I said we don't have a public relations challenge. We have a result challenge and again what should tell us how we're doing is whether or not we ultimately get to whatever is determined should be the goal for national testing And again if it's five million tests per day which again would be like Fifteen to twenty times. They could day right now. that should be the metric against which we are competing. You say that one of the most important things to do now is a massive surge in tests and that we should have a coordinated effort to throw everything at that. Do you think that's happening? I think there is that Recognition I think. Look I mean it was a press conference yesterday or the day before that had all of the individuals that produce these kinds of tests not all but a subset of them once back on stage in the Rose Garden so again there's clearly that recognition Then the question is are those who are in charge of driving this campaign because make no mistake about it You know commander may try to make it. Look as if he has a light hand on the reins at all. He's doing just sort of adding people in the back and they're doing great work You drive a campaign the surge in Iraq we drove General Odierno and I drove that surge with McChrystal and others again. And you absolutely throw everything at that and you don't let obstacles stand in your way if you can prevent it but do you feel that. That's what's happening now. That's a tough one for me to judge Walter again. I'm not in the Council of these. You know again of the tests. Orson the others. I'm not aware of all the instructions that have gone out. I don't have the projections and again the hard data right now Again certainly right now. I mean what is I? Think undeniably Is that we do not have the level of testing that every single one of the programs. either specifies or suggests is required ultimately to with confidence allow people to reduce some of the restrictions under which were offering president trump called himself a wartime president. Tell me what you think. The attributes of a wartime president should be I think that wartime or peacetime but of course there's a certain urgency to leadership in order time. But you come back again to the four tasks of a strategic leader getting the big ideas right. It's usually an inclusive transparent. Open iterative process. No one of us is far than all of us together. Developing the big ideas then communicate them and doing that relentlessly and again the measure is how well does someone perform each of those Different tasks in. That's the question that I think again. It's fair for a country to ask about is leader about Congress about his Federal Reserve Chief Treasury Secretary the other prominent players a CD IN HHS. And it's it's fair for citizens of states and cities to ask the same about their leaders. President trump has said that he got bears. No responsibility for this as a commander. How do you balanced the notion of saying the buck stops with me? Taking responsibility for things with the need to keep People having phase in which you're doing look I grew up in a profession And served in that profession For over thirty seven years in over thirty eight and a half from government overall And the the description of your responsibilities as commander was the you are responsible for all that. You're a unit does or fails to do now. Obviously you look at When you're evaluating the commander for example and you see that there has been some problem or challenger came up short on something or did Santana on something is not always because the commander. It's obviously always a team effort. So in that sense you have to factor. In what else is going on at the end of the day. that particular Thinking seemed inescapable for me And I think probably a reasonable example of the kind of accountability that she can go with the awesome responsibility that comes from command from executive positions have used spoken to president trump about this now. I should note that I have spoken to members of the White House. Some that are fairly significant. Rates Several of them And they have welcomed in They haven't necessarily applauded every single bit of advice or recommendations that I have made by and large. They have been appreciative of me making that providing that input. Do you think you would be useful to have A FULL-TIME COMMANDER? Leica general in charge of this on a day by day hour by hour basis. Look I think you have a Task Force? It's led by the vice president President clearly is heavily involved in this There are subordinate task. Forces of various types challenge courses. How do you drive this to the next level? And that is. I think. The major question right now when it comes to significantly and dramatically increasing testing and contact tracing capabilities and finally. What have you learned as a wartime commander in the joint commander of many forces under your control that would apply to this fight against rounded? By Sake what you learn as a combat commander of heats in Iraq or Afghanistan or the Greater Middle East What have you is the imperative again of getting the strategy right. Please recall that. The surge in Iraq that mattered most wasn't the surge of forces. It was a surge of ideas. It was a chain strategy. And then you have to work very hard to communicate those big ideas through the breadth and depth the organization and then relentlessly overseeing the implementation of those big ideas working very hard to set up your subordinate commanders. For Success to get everything you possibly can for them So that they have the best Posssibility of achievement success without ever forget into sit down formally we used to do it in Baghdad and determining how you need to change the refined augment the ideas so that you do it again and again and again General David portrayals thank you so much for joining us. My pleasure thanks alter really important perspective. In American history is filled with great leaders. Who United the country at times of peril but in this current crisis? The Nation seems as divided as ever like for instance Michigan where a Democratic governor is in a standoff with Republican. Legislators OVER LOCKDOWN RULES. Angry protests is some open the arm jammed into the State House there demanding an end to the state of emergency historian and documentary. Filmmaker Ken Burns says that in divided times is more important than ever for America to live by its motto a pluralist onum out of many one. In fact is the name of his online resource. For History Buffs. It's an incredibly themed. Compendium of his work across four decades and Ken Burns is joining me. Now from Walpole New Hampshire Ken Burns. Welcome back to the program. Imagine a better time to have you back on particularly talking about trying to bring history to the present and trying to unite people so about UNOM relaunched it now under cove it and we had that little clip where you saying you know. Mark Twain says history doesn't repeat itself it it kind of rhymes what you see rhyming today from history and what are you putting out by them. Well I think what we see rhyming is pretty obvious. We've got depression like economic circumstances. We have this thirst this cry. For leadership that have appeared at the critical juncture in our past we have we're on a warlike footing so one is hearkens back to the Revolutionary Times and George Washington's leadership and the early days of our republic Abraham Lincoln and the civil war. Of course. I think probably what comes to mind for. Most people who the person who oversaw not only are federal are are central are UNOM approach to the depression but also to the Second World War the greatest cataclysm in human history and that is Franklin Roosevelt. Onum is an attempt to realize that a history does not repeat itself but there are many evergreen themes that constantly occur and reoccur motifs echoes. Ghosts rhymes if you will permit us to have a greater perspective on what's going on now so with the support of the patriotic philanthropist. David Rudenstine at my longtime colleague John. Mccain we've been working for many years on essentially assembling mix tapes if you will of these various themes might be leadership. It might be women it might be race. It might be the nature of Freedom. It might be hard times innovation war politics a whole variety of things and look at the way the various times in our films. We've accidentally bumped into these things and how they together suggest connections to the to the present. There's never a moment in my film-making over the last four and a half decades where haven't finished a film looked up and realized that it was rhyming in the present and look talking about FDR which you just mentioned of course you did a big series on the Roosevelt and you've noted of course it FDR straddle the great you know eruptions of the time of the depression. Second World. Well you just heard General Petraeus also talking about how. Communication is a vital part of strategy. So I want to ask you in a moment about fireside chats about how? Fdr got the nation through this terrible terrible time. So let's play a little clip and then we'll talk about it. By March thirty-three when Franklin D Roosevelt was inaugurated as President? The banking system itself seemed about to go on as frightened. Positives threatened to withdraw their saviors. Roosevelt closed the banks. Then ask for radio time on Sunday evening. March twelve to tell the American people how he and they together would meet the crisis. Remind us what that was like those fireside chats and when he demanded that time to be able to communicate via radio then and of course you know in many many decades since it's been via television just compare rhyme how FDR communicated and the result of that the effect of that compared to today and president since him will I think Roosevelt understood that that the power of this was in less being more we sort of hear about the fireside chats and assume they might be similar to the daily Kovic briefings. They were not. They were few and far between so when they happened. Everybody paid attention and he was using a relatively new medium of radio in a very intimate and a completely thoughtful way instead of having to Stentorian voice project to the farthest he could actually in a soft voice. Draw you in and you lean closer to your radio. And the genius of the communication people actually went and put their money back in the bank when he said hoarding has become an unfashionable. Pastime people went and put their money back into the bank and saved capitalism. Some people thought in just a few days today. I think we think that we can control the media. But it's really getting a tiger by the tail and so I think what we find. Is that the American. People are drowning their saturated. They don't know where to get. The information from it makes us susceptible to those alternative facts and and the possibility of those with more nefarious purposes to manipulate those facts or or to try anything. I think what was important about the great leaders whether it was Washington or or Lincoln or FDR who arrive in very different technological times in terms of the transfer of information nonetheless understood that they were responsible that being experimental was important to admit your failures was essential and to essentially give voice to them that is to say we do celebrate the pluribus. That's hugely important that everyone feels like they're a member but at the same time we understand and this was depression. The economic circumstances were forced on us but in the Second World War. We took that shared sacrifice another step and we said what we've only made five thousand planes a year and you want fifty thousand. That's impossible Mr President. He goes. No it's possible and we made fifty thousand airplanes fifty thousand airplanes women did a lot of the work. Americans just decided they would put their oars in the water at the same time and pull in the same direction and much as we're being asked to sublimate the individual freedom what I want for a collective freedom what we need right now. With the covert response to flatten. The curve is hugely reminiscent. Echoing of these previous eras. So what you've said also is that you really want to. You need the way to unite Americans in this incredibly an increasingly fractured state of the world. State of your nation is to talk about. Shed story shed history. Do you see anybody out there who is bringing that pluribus. Even even now. I'm certainly people appointed to another governor of New York. The current governor of New York obviously FDR echoes. Do you see what Andrew Cuomo is doing as trying to put the pluribus back into the United States. Absolutely I think him and the Governor of Michigan and the Governor of Rhode Island each in their own way are really trying to say an important part of all of this empathy. That is to say. I understand what you're going through. I remember the polls of the time of the depression people would would would place. Fdr above God. One man said he's the only person who knows that my boss is an SOB. Here's this to the manor. Born patrician leader. Fdr WHO is himself enslaved by infantile paralysis? He cannot walk without assistance and yet people around the country feel that he knows them feels that he senses what they're about and so. I think that you see in the daily briefings of Andrew Cuomo and other governors red state and blue state around this country. It has devolved in a vacuum of leadership to them to say. This is where we are. This is just the facts. This is what we need. This is what we're doing. This is what I need of you. This is what you need of me and this is what I will try to do. These are all important things and I have a sense that if we were to take time away from their busy schedules and I wouldn't want to do it now. We'd find that each one of them. You know Andrew or Gretchen or whomever are students of history. That they've read about what it takes to make the engine of this democracy operate and it isn't just a set of aphorisms on the wall. It's it's putting on the gas and then putting on the brakes. It's it's admitting your failures. It's responsibility it's experimenting. It's being honest and it saying essentially as you mentioned before the buck stops here. You mentioned a couple of female governors including the governor of Rhode Island Governor Raimondo. I consider Rhode Island my home away from home state. But you also in your history lessons and your films point to women's rights and how women well talk about the war production. I women came hurtling to the core and is so much in the manufacturing and the supporting the war effort from home. Just tell us because right now women are the majority on the front line is essential workers in the exact and that kind of industry right now. History tells us that that that it will get better for women after them. Could this be a turning point in terms of rights and etc this? This cannot help but be a turning point all great crises and this is clearly one of the greatest crises in the history of the United States offers. Obviously all of the horrible things that were going through all the disproportionate effects on African Americans and people of Color. All the economic dislocations all of the loss the death the sadness but it also offers opportunity in every great crisis has done that including World War Two including this civil war. I think right here. Christiane what could be and more ennobled position in the world than a nurse. Right now I mean somebody all of our sheltering in place and trying to surround us with the kind of various moats that protect us in our family and understandably so and we've been asked to do that but we have people mostly women who are moving to awards this danger and that to me is so anno- bling and so I think what happens is a crisis also offers US particularly in this case a chance to transcend the dialectic. That has beset us for the last fifty years since Vietnam this sense of Red State Blue State of young and old of gay and straight a rich and poor and that maybe these old forms these old tropes that have made somebody money. Don't actually have to work anymore that we can actually see what the mechanics. Their founders thought had to come into play particularly at crises. The called into question at these moments and we can understand for example. Why when we're prosperous and things are going well. We can question the role of government but a strong federal government at this moment is an undeniable fact of the survival of the United States of America. And at that point we can look to our past and look to a homestead act and Land Grant College Act and and a transcontinental railroad and the emancipation proclamation and the thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendment and Child Labor Laws and Labor's right to organize and the Social Security in the Gi bill and the interstate highway system and a man on the moon and the affordable care and go. Whoa you know our record as a federal government. Isn't this big force of evil. Have we screwed up yes. Please see my eyes film on Vietnam but we are at heart about a strong federal government that responds to the needs of its people. It doesn't done it very well most of the time but when it does do it well we are all the better. I think this time calls for great strong leadership as we're seeing in many of the governors houses and I can tell you overseas people are very well aware of American federal leadership at its best and they're missing that absence right now but I want to end on a more hopeful. Note that you know with whom you're also putting out one of the things that you did. I it was about the Brooklyn Bridge. It's something that's really inspired you and it's really too hopeful way to end so. I want to put a little clip from that movie and then we'll just quickly talk about it. I mean they could have built another at and bridge couldn't he and he didn't. He really aspire to do something gorgeous so Makes you feel that. Maybe Youtube could add something that would lashed and be beautiful. So the Great Arthur Miller talking about the decision to do that bit of infrastructure. Just quickly we got about thirty seconds. Why is it so important? This history makes you an optimist despite all of the horrible stuff that history reveals about human nature never changes the levels of greed. Generosity are the same sometimes within the same person and war with one another. But what Arthur Miller is acknowledging? Is the human impulse. None of us are getting out of this alive. Corona virus is going to remind as that in ways that are uncomfortable but if we do something that would last and be beautiful. There is a kind of immortality and there is a sense of joining with other people in common purpose in a kind of common anthem. If you will that gives us the confidence gives us. The courage gives us the ability to move forward and the best teacher. I know to arm you for these. Challenging moments is the history. You don't know and it's so great it's so much of the history you have created on film is now up there. It's on PBS. It's on unum and people can go and access it now. It's really great service for our times. Ken Burns thank you so much. Indeed and one day the President of the European Commission is hosting a virtual international pledging conference to raise money needed to accelerate covert nineteen vaccine development efforts leaders and health organizations from all over the world adjoining the event except for one major player and that is the United States. I asked on the lion about it. We want to have this online pledging conference on Monday the fourth of May and indeed we want to raise eight billion dollars and we all know this is just the beginning we will need more. It looks like what people have been asking since the beginning. Some kind of global task force to really coordinate many things but in this case vaccines I know that the. Us government has not been particularly reliable as as a leader in this moment. But it's just not willing to participate. Have you ever come across that kind of reaction from the United States in a global crisis like this? Well the United States are doing a lot domestically what research for vaccine is concerned and indeed they are informed about our global initiative and I hope that in the one or the other way they decide to join but for sure the American footprint is there because we have outstanding American scientists and philanthropies that are joining our call for action. I'm very glad about that. So we invited the whole world and I think the whole world is joining and this is for vaccines that will be made available to the whole world when they when they discovered so my full interview with online will air on our show on Monday. That's it for us for now goodbye from London.

Memory terms and conditions apply. This is the memory palace. I'm Nathan male. She had just turned fifteen when her family all move to the rock. I could call him. Nyland man is an island, but to say, I Lewis in her family moved to an island might leave you with the wrong impression, but the wrong images in your head. She and her family moved to Iraq the craggy bump of New England, limestone poking out of the water in the middle of narrow neck of Narragansett bay of Newport, Rhode Island, just big enough for a modest lighthouse in a modest regular house for a modest family. Her father was a sailor. He piloted a revenue cutter for the US government, doing customs enforcement. Strapping sea-captain in I've is youngest days, but he got old fast, had a bad heart and in his early fifties, he had to come shore. It was eighteen fifty four and he was assigned to the new lighthouse online rock. And you should know that lime rock is just a few hundred meters from the mainland on one side because there will be times in the story when you might picture Ida Lewis alone. In the middle of nowhere, there may be times when you'll be swept away, and it will seem like this lighthouses away from all civilization beset by forces, natural and existential. So keep this picture in mind a white lighthouse the White House on white rock, just offshore from a bustling seaside town. Close enough. In fact that every morning I could take the weather rowboat down from the hooks where it hung in the side of the weather, White House in row. Her younger sister and brother across the channel to go to school in town. School was done Friday, and then she'd returned to lime rock and help her mother get the house in order and her father get the light ready for the night before taking the boat down again to pick the kids up and brought them back about a thousand feet needs direction as the Gulf lies. But longer often, depending on the tide or current or the chop in the channel in her angle of attack. There were days of parents would watch their teenage daughter, small Enslinn port, their younger children across treacherous. Winter waters marvel at her skill and your strength. The way here dress soaked by the spray clung to the muscles in her broad shoulders or her wrists is they worked the oars and how she always seemed to know just what to do to keep the boat, steady how she could just press on and keep rowing. When the see was breaking over her. She wrote the channel every morning even after her father's stroke. It came just four months into his job and left him unable to get up and down the stairs to the light enabled to have the buckets of oil erode a town for supplies or clean the chimney or policy glass or do much of anything, but sitting in the chair by the window. So at fifteen, Ida Lewis became the keeper of the lighthouse on lime. Rock. Lewis was just kid. Lewis was just girl, but her parents knew she was just the girl for the job in this job undertaken in the summer of her fifteenth year. When the sunshine in the waves in colored the whitewash lighthouse in the late afternoon when the water that broke against the rocks cooled, the salted air. This job would be her life. Each day each night every day every night, the same duties for decades. To row to and fro across the channel, all the upkeep, the ceiling resealing the caulking and painting mending things weatherbeaten in water, warn and mildewed polishing the lens dusting each Bevill. We'll crouched in the glass in box that house the light at the top of the tower, wiping soot in salt from each window pane front and back each morning to prepare for the night ahead tonight that come Sooners summer fades and you need to work faster. Get your siblings off to school in the dark and the cold to come back in time to trim the wick in sweep the chimney measure out the oil and heated to thin it out and winter when it got viscous burn dimly into fast and keep inventory and keep records and fill out forms in purchase orders, incident reports, and go up and down the spiral stairs up and down in the heat, Nicole and the rain and snow in the spring breeze that caught the smells of shore flowers, cut grass. But the sounds of the shore out to the world of the rock, you mean with the smell of the sea. And the sounds of see. See. How well does one know the sounds of the sea when one keeps a lighthouse in Iraq within it in how well does one know the ways of the waves and the wind and the spray and the light on the water at all hours in all seasons in their infinite ways. Anyway, some days were different one day an end of summer day, some teenage boys Bush Hermitage sons of the wealthy families who just begun to summer in Newport back then took out a sailboat one last time before returning to school for the fall in Ida, the lighthouse keepers daughter now the lighthouse keeper herself could hear them playing. She worked in heard them horsing around as they pass by and then arguing is the waves picked up and swamp the boat shouting as it capsized. But by then she was already pulling her rowboat down from its hooks and hefting it into the watering enrolling on as it broke over her and save those boys from down or being dashed upon the rocks on which she lived. They didn't tell anyone because they didn't want anyone to know they'd been saved by some girl. I didn't tell anyone because she was just doing her job. Then the days went on and the nights went on. Got her siblings office school. Got the light ready for the night. Kept it glowing till dawn in the days went on and the nights went on. And then one night early March eighteen sixty nine. She just turned twenty seven just finished her twelfth year. Some forty three hundred days in the job and the rock. There was a squall just another squall just more whipping wind in Whitecaps. Frigid spray that frozen your hair. On this night as her light shone through the sleet in the frost on the window panes she heard cries over the usual Halley. Her father called out from his chair by the window a boat off the point by Ford Adams, he could barely make it out men in the water. He called to his daughter, but she was gone out into the storm in her nightclothes only a towel for warmth wrapped around her neck already on her way back streaming, pulling against the current or slice into the water. Keeping steady rains breaking over her head hands, freezing bitten frost muscles, burning. She pushed through the storm. When the men to soldiers stationed at the fort would remember the terror of that night in the storm that took their boat and the life of a boy. They'd recklessly paid to take them through the channel despite the dangers. So they could make curfew after a night outcry, housing. When they told the story, they remembered seeing a boat in the water saw at flash in the light from lime rock. Is it crested heatwave and then plunged down into darkness on its way toward them. But they were crestfallen we're sure they were doomed when they saw was road by a woman who can never make it to them in time would never be strong enough, could never haul them into the boat, could never row them back to safety. But yet here they were alive to remember the heroism vita Lewis. Fourth of July eighteen sixty nine was either Louis day in Newport, Rhode Island, in lieu of a celebration of the glorious union reunify just four years before at the end of the civil war, four thousand people gathered to praise the girl keeper of dolime rock lighthouse many in the crowd had known for years newer from school back when she went to school or from daily trips into town, or they knew her in passing. Truly having seen up in the loft in the lighthouse or out repairing her battered old boat as they sailed by in, there's but many more knew her from the articles, not just the ones in the local paper. A dug up stories of other rescues heretofore unreported. But the ones in national magazines too. They had seen the etching on the front cover of Harper's, weekly idol Louis just over five feet tall, just over one hundred pounds on a windswept rock, a broiling tempest behind her, but her gaze fixed ahead arms crossed. Just joss said, look in her bright eyes. That seemed to tell the illustrator to speed up. She had worked to do the soldiers. Rescue made their rescuer famous in two ways that were brand new eighteen six, nine nationally in seemingly overnight. And so on an overcast summer day, her mornings work behind her still enough time to row back in light, the light and start her night. Either Lewis listen to speeches made in her honour saw girls. So women dressed like she'd been on her Harper's cover black dress, white kerchief tied in the sailors not around her neck. She saw concession ears hawking Chachis with their name and her face and the lighthouse she kept printing on them. And then she was presented with the new boat paid for by a group of donors that included Ulysses s grant hero of the union and president of the United States. And when she was asked to speak to her adoring crowd, she had few words beyond thanks. She didn't like crowds. And besides there was worth waiting for her back on lime rock. That summer nine thousand people came to see her. You could pay someone to real you out. We're have your man pull up your Yod and then shuttle you over there were Astor's in Vanderbilt's in admirals in railroad men in for the summer season, the leading lights of high society. Who couldn't resist the chance to meet the famous. I Luis the humble girlhood so quickly come to embody American bravery and duty. Not that they ever invited her to visit. Then Susan, b. Anthony. And Elizabeth Katie Stanton formed the national women's suffrage association. In the very next day, they came calling on lime rock and try to recruit Ida. Lewis is the public face of their 'cause she was the hero American women needed. But Ida demurred she didn't like crowds then besides there was work to do. But again, and again, that summer she would have to take a break from that work to greet or to humor. This dignitary. But of course, most of the many thousands who came went famous. Some days in between the cleaning and the dusting and the wick, trimming and the paperwork and all sheet, shake six hundred hands. It could be too much when people could be too much photographers would make her sit. People would get the house dirty. Some people would steal things, but most people were kind. Just folks with boats daughters wanted to see their heroin and flashing. Summer would end in the weather would turn in the wind would blow cold and nor Easters with Rory. And it would all be for the best. Her admirers would stay on their side of the water where they could look out to the lighthouse and know that Ida was out there a symbol of an all American type of virtue Yankee pragmatism mixed with a Dacia daring. Do. Late for them all living metaphor, and she could stay on her side of the water and get back to work. There were songs and poems written in her honor. She received medals and gifts and marriage proposals. She did marry a sea captain who had come and kept a ship in the slip in the docks. Just across the channel from lime rock. They were engaged for three years while he was at sea. When he returned to claim her, she left the lighthouse behind for family life on dry land. But the marriage didn't make two years. And she went back to her light. She said there was peace in the middle of the sea that she couldn't find on shore. She said, the light was her child in her life was taken care of it, and she took great pride in knowing that taking care of it mattered that it kept people safe. Best we can count. She saved eighteen lives with their own hands. The last of those that we know about came when she was sixty two years old. There were likely more, but she didn't like to talk about the rescues was all in a day's work at all one Hoover duties, no more vital than the cleaning or the caulking or Dustin Lynn's or pre heating, the oil in winter. So it will last through the night every night. The last of those nights was in October of nineteen. Eleven. She collapsed with a stroke. The next morning. Her death was international news. Full-page tributes. Her funeral was massive crowds lined the streets flags flew at half-mast businesses shut down for the day. One of the boys, one of the rich kids she'd save when she was just a kid herself who hadn't wanted anyone to know that he was saved by some girl was one of her Palmer's and let's just pause a second. The picture in there, a man in his late sixties in a suit and tie carrying that coffin, knowing that the woman whose body he bore had given him his last fifty years. The sermon was a lovely thing. The Reverend work the Ida Lewis says, shining light in the darkness angle for all it was worth a new could blame him. He praised her courage and how she plunged into perilous waters. Again, again. She would have hated going to her own funeral all the pomp and the pretense. She never liked crowds, but she would oppressed on and kept rowing while the c crashed over. There was work to do.

From Caravans to Cages: Why Trump Bashes Migrants

"What's happening right now as a large group of people that court caravan. That is an assault on our country. I think the Democrats had something to do with it. And now they're saying, I think we made a big mistake. Unmanly hudson. Welcome to deconstructed another week another so called immigration crisis. The midterms around the corner and the racist nativist around force, I'll speak to the legendary Mexican American journalist and Trump's bet nor for he rambles I've been this controversy five years, and I have never seen anything like this. We are normalizing racism. We are normalizing cruelty. So this week on deconstructed the migrants coming. The caravan of Central American migrants continues to swell in numbers and army of migrants is literally marching or riding or making their way from visit from Honduras from most all of them from Central America. President Trump is calling the caravan a national emergency, and he's claiming criminals and unknown middle easterners are mixed in with the crowd. They will be. There's no proof of anything. There's no proof of anything the army of migrants already assembly at our border. What are we going to do if the media's to be believed the United States is about to be overrun by holds of terrorists and criminals from Central America? And we don't just talk about folks. News or bright, Bob, we're talking mainstream media organizations ABC news calls it. The caravan crisis the Associated Press. Yeah. AP run a piece headlined a ragged growing on me of migrants resumes, March towards US. I mean, seriously an army marching towards the US to invade and occupy this poor weak defenceless borderless country, come on. This is a quote caravan of innocent men, women and children unom d- people. The most vulnerable of the vulnerable refugees asylum seekers people fleeing violence and persecution. And yes, extreme poverty to they come from. By the way, like Honduras, which the US helped destabilise in the first place by backing violent coups and turning a blind eye to state sponsored violence and persecution to follow. Donald Trump's lead and present these people as an assault on America is irresponsible dishonest alarmist and racist. Even if all seven thousand people make it across the border into the US and claim asylum, which is highly unlikely that would only represent around one percent of all asylum claims one percent and yet two weeks away from the midterms Trump and his racist cronies have succeeded in getting the quote, unquote, liberal media to focus on this mythical threat from Central America, rather than I don't know that ongoing attacks on healthcare and Medicaid their regressive tax cuts Trump's own history of tax fraud, the murder cover up in Saudi Arabia, the Russia investigation, and of course, the guy accused of sexual assault that they forced through onto the supreme court. But. This is why Trump won seriously. This is why Trump won at every turn at every juncture in his journey to the Oval Office. And since he arrived in not office a mainstream media that supposedly hates him. And that he supposedly hates wittingly or unwittingly has helped him boosted. His message echoed his lines reinforced his racism dumped to his white nationalist tune. You know, they have a word it sort of became old fashion. It's called a nationalist. And I say really we're not supposed to use that word. You know, what I am nationalist? Okay. What's so frustrating? Is this bogus immigration crisis? Centered on this caravan distracts us from what really has been an immigration crisis at the border, a moral and political catastrophe at the border, the so cool separation of migrant kids from their parents by the Trump administration, and the fact that is gone from your Twitter Facebook feeds that it no longer dominates the headlines on cable news as it did in may and June of this year doesn't mean that the story the scandal the abuse has gone away. It hasn't according to the latest official numbers from the Trump administration, which many believe to be a complete underestimate. There are still sixty six kids held in detention who were quote unquote separated from their parents, one of those children is under the age of five in total. Remember more than two and a half thousand kids kids would torn apart from their parents by this administration. A lot of those parents hundreds of them have already been deported from. This country. Then there are the unaccompanied kids who came to the US alone. There are more than twelve thousand of them now being held in detention twelve thousand that's more than five times a number that we're in custody eighteen months ago, and they record high. It's barbaric, it's a moral disgrace. It's a crime, and it should be in a normal. World would be a political catastrophe for the president that caused it. And yet Trump carries on with his presidency as if all this fine with kids at the Buddha. How often do you see journalists ask him about that story? Ask him about the kids still in detention rather than about mythical ISIS terrorists from Central America on the country. A lot of the media coverage again helped Trump by referring to what's been going on at the border as family separation separation, but it's not just separation. It's theft. Children were taken from their parents against their will without that consent. Sometimes without their knowledge by the United States government. They were stolen. Oh, we'll take your kid next for shower. The kid never comes back. Oh, you'll son daughter will be right here waiting for you. When you get back from your hearing than a baby is torn from her mother's breast whilst in the middle of feeding that's theft. Plain and simple. And let's don't forget what has happened to some of these kids in detention we've seen reports of kids who were assaulted handcuffed Chaz forced to drink toilet water held down and injected with sedatives and anti psychotics which left him unable to walk. So this is a story of theft of child abuse of racism all rolled into one. Let's be clear about that. But here's what the president of the United States things they exploited the loopholes in our laws to enter the country as unaccompanied alien minors. They look so innocent that innocent these kids are not innocent. He says disgusting, even by his standards disgusting. And look, I get it. The Obama administration did some Harithi. Things when it came to immigration and border security from deporting millions of people to detaining unaccompanied kids, but what Trump is doing is on a whole different level. Listen to legal and from the ACLU speaking on my colleague, Jeremy scales podcast intercepted back in June. It's horrendous. It's the worst thing I've seen in my twenty five plus years of doing civil rights work. So look we shouldn't give a bomber appalls on immigration. But nor should we deny that Trump is way way worse. And one of the main reasons he's worse. And why he's so dangerous is because his immigration policy isn't a reaction to an actual migrant crisis to increasing numbers at the border or even to pressure from the press or the public. It's a product of its motivated by white nationalism. When Trump appoint Steve Bannon, and Sebastian Gorka, Stephen Miller to his administration, and let them decide immigration policy that's white nationalism. When he talks about migrant caravan gangs, invading infesting, the United States. He's. Borrowing, language, and imagery straight. I don't wanna key texts of the white nationalist movement, a racist French novel cool the camp of the saints when he tells his aides that he wants fewer immigrants from shithole countries in Africa and more immigrants from places like Norway. That's white nationalism. So let's not discuss or debate immigration or asylum or border security in a vacuum. Let's discuss it in the context of a presidency that is driven by white nationalism and administration that has no qualms stealing detaining and abusing migrant children in order to appease, it's racist base. And to get that base to come out and vote for more of the same. My guest today is an award-winning journalist perhaps the most recognizable face in Spanish language, media in the US who's been outspoken on the issue of kids in detention, and is an immigrant from Mexico himself. I can hear this country on January second nineteen eighty three and I had left Mexico because of censorship. Then Mexico was not a democracy. That's whole. Hey Ramos on the first episode of his new Facebook. What series real America which launched in September? And looks at the mon- immigrant experience in the US since the election of Donald Trump Ramases being one of the most persistent voices asking difficult questions about the administration's immigration policies. It was out tendency in fact, that got him thrown out of a Trump press conference way back in two thousand fifteen. Excuse me, sit down you weren't called sit down sit down sit down. Go ahead. No, you don't you have been called. Go back to Univision. Hey, ramone. Thanks for joining me on deconstructed. Congratulations on the moons of you new Univision Facebook series real America on the first episode of that show. You talked about what the political climate was like the United States on the issue of immigration when you first came here as an immigrant on a student visa in nineteen Eighty-three. You even include a clipper Ronald Reagan, famously speaking about immigrants in front of the statue of liberty nineteen eighty they came to make America work. They didn't ask what this country could do for them. But what they could do to make this this refuge, the greatest home of freedom in history. When it comes to immigration, especially from Latin America, how different is the US of Ronald Reagan in one thousand nine hundred thirty two the US today on the Donald J Trump it is completely different. Sometimes it feels like a different country when I arrived. He was January nineteen three. It was completely different this country game, mediocre -tunities that might contra foraging. Mexico couldn't give me back. Then Mexico was not a democracy. I wanted to be a journalist. I didn't want to be censored and the United States, Los Angeles. As a CD helped me be the journalist that I am today in just a few years later in one thousand nine hundred six was precisely Ronald Reagan who gave our nominees team more than three million people in this country. And now what we are seeing is exactly the opposite. So holy like you. I'm an immigrant to the US. I'm a Muslim immigrant from the UK. And I made the brilliantly time to move of coming to the US into a fifteen just a few. Two weeks before Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president. Now. Obviously, I knew that Muslims were not popular in this country, even before Trump, but I never imagined things would get to the point where you have a supreme court approved Muslim ban is that how you feel that you knew things weren't great for Mexican immigrants when you move to. But you never imagined America when Alexis president Mexico's sending rapists here on purpose. It was very difficult to think that something like that was going to happen. But we knew it was it was coming is just that a lot of people didn't want to listen what we were saying on June twenty fifteen Donald Trump in New York City, actually said that Mexican immigrants were criminals, drug, traffickers and Rapids. He said that some of his followers and supporters now are saying, well, he really didn't mean that he Mia. He actually meant the documentary immigrants in this country. That is not true. He said something completely different. Let's talk about quote unquote, family separations at the border, which like you. I regard as one of the biggest domestic scandals. Of this scandal ridden presidency, you've covered a lot of political stories in your thirty five odd years of doing journalism here in the United States. A lot of stories you've covered at the border on immigration. Where does this story about separations about kids being ripped from that? Parents put in cages where does that rank in terms of stories that have shocked, you how bad is it? I don't last week. I was in mcallen, Texas, and I saw a group of women to mothers with their kids three and five and two an accompanied minors. One thirteen in one fifteen there were coming from Honduras. They were escaping as violence, poverty hunger. In that's the kind of people that Donald Trump us precisely as his example as deterrent. I've been in this controversy five years, and I've never seen anything like this. Just imagine. What would happen if it would be Mexico doing that too? A US children. What would happen? What would happen if Mexico? Invaded by now, it would have been a completely different story. But somehow nothing happens with Donald Trump. It doesn't matter what we do nothing is happening with with Donald Trump. So I I'm honestly as journalists. I'm getting ready for another two more years employee for another six years because this is not ending on a recent episode of your podcast entrepreneur you spoke with the ont of Alison Valencia Madrid six zero alva- doornail who is separated from a mother, but it memorized on phone number manage to make a phone call from her detention facility propublica obtain that recording famously of that cool. You hearing wailing children in the background. But what shocked a lot of people even more is that you can hear a man's voice. Presumably an immigration officer joking in Spanish. We've got an history here only need is a conductor. This is not just security or border control. This is cruelty. This is depraved behaviors it is cruelty. And then nothing it is our responsibility as journalists to denounce it as our cities. I'm honestly not surprise. We knew this was happening on fortunately, many journalists and many politicians just didn't believe the same way when he had me from a press conference in into our were we were saying come on. This is this is an attack on the presence and attack on freedom of the press on the first amendment, and nobody pay attention. Of course, when people realize what was happening. It was already too late. Do you worry that the US media has moved onto quickly from this story with the kids at the board of the journalists are too easily distracted by all the shiny new scandals and Goths and outrages that Trump has basically produced on a daily basis since kids. In cages became a global news story back in may and June of this year. Yeah, I'm very concerned about that. I think we we are normalizing racism thing. We are normalizing cruelty. It's normal now to talk about children being separated from their parents. How is original these moment is happening? Yeah. You've also interviewed a woman on your show named Elena Martinez from L Salvador who came to the California border seeking asylum with her husband and sons age five and eleven her husband older son ended up in a detention center. And then that sun was separated from husband at the time of your interview, neither she nor a husband and seeing the child and over a month. What are these people going through on a daily basis? How are they dealing with this trauma? I cannot imagine Hoy. What state I'd be in? If either of my daughter's God forbid were taken from me and just disappeared. It is it is traumatic for them. It is incredibly difficult. However, you know, what I'm most surprised and really shocked is that after talking to them. Mm-hmm. They are telling me that they would do it again in mcallen. There's a refugee centre. Brondby sister Norma Pimental. She's an incredible woman. And there I met about two hundred immigrants most of them coming from Honduras in what mala and I was asking them. So having you heard what's happening at the border you coming with your kids with your children. Why are you risking it? And they were telling me doesn't matter. We're going to risk it. Because if we stay on us, we stay in some. They will see alpha gang members, my one my boy to be part of the gang or gang members. My want to rate my daughter, if the whole family doesn't support them which which makes a mockery of Trump's whole zero tolerance. He does understand that these people are trying to survive. Exactly. And nothing we make a mistake by just calling them immigrants. We we have to call them what they are which is refugee exactly hundred by calling them refugees. They disturb certain protections. According to international laws that are not being given by the US government. And I still can't believe that we have lower the number of refugees being that minute this country Trump claimed over the summer the day before he reluctantly belatedly signed an executive order bringing family separations. He said, quote, Mike, people love this. I mean, people talk about political correctness. The current is icy the self I see in the US meeting right now as outsiders as a newcomer to the US. Is the refusal of reporters and journalists to call out the white nationalism. That's in front of them to say that, you know policies on Puerto Rico or policies on kids at the border these accidents, but these are deliberate policies aimed at stoking up Abass aimed an informed by a particularly. Absolutely. And I'm glad that you mentioned the case of Puerto Rico because that's the best example on how Latinos in Puerto Ricans are Latino or consider Latinos are being treated as second class citizens in nine days after hurricane Harvey destroyed. Parts of Texas, according to political dot com. The money that the victims in Texas receive the food and water the victims in Texas received was much much larger than the victims in Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria. It is something that we can actually count. We saw how President Trump treated with these Dane in how he humiliated the victims of hurricane Maria and Rigobert throwing them. Rolls of paper towel. I didn't see person from doing that recently in North Carolina. I didn't see him doing that. With the victims of hurricanes in Florida, and in Texas, but simply because Puerto Ricans work considered second-class citizens president. Trump got away with that. And then he even said that it was an incredible success when you had three thousand people almost three thousand people who have died in Puerto Rico. Daddy, simply incredible that one. That he has made it now he's denies the number of going back to the election campaign in the summer of two thousand fifteen you were famously trying to ask Donald Trump question at a press conference, and he wouldn't let you speak. Eventually he had his fug of a bodyguard. Keith Schiller, physically remove you. Thank you already personnel escorted Rama's from the event after hey challenged Trump on his immigration proposal. Trump told NBC's today show that BrahMos was quote ranting and raving like a madman sit down sit down. Go ahead. No you down you have been called. What was going through your mind that they did, you know, then before a lot of the rest of us what kind of an authoritarian President Trump would turn out to be. I knew he wasn't going to be easy. But I never expected that US politician would eject me from a press conference. I mean, I would expect that from another retiree and country not from the US. But that's exactly what happened by the way. The only other person who prevented me from asking a question with a body was was Fidel Castro. So here, you have Fidel Castro and Donald Trump doing exactly the same thing. So this is this is important because when when Trump said that again, Mexican immigrants were criminals, and rapists, we said this is racist. When Donald from ejecta me from a press conference. We were saying well right now is a Latino journalist next is going to be is going to be a different attack on the press, and nobody pay attention. Did you feel? Down by US media colleagues. Many of them didn't have your back when you were being mistreated by Trump at that presser. They were complaining you were to opinionated. You too much of an activist you with a Latino guy. Exactly. And what shocked me ease that? Instead of defending me some of them simply raise their hands. And waited Donald Trump to them the possibility of asking a question, but to be to be very honest here to journalists Tom yomas from ABC news and Casey haunt from MSNBC. They stood up in the middle of the press conference. And they told on from Mr. Trump, you cannot do that. And then both of them ask than the candidate to allow me to come back, and as the questions instead of them, and I did I came back many people don't remember that I came back in that. I was able to to have a conversation with him for five to seven minutes. However, thanks, Tom yomas in case, you're on this oddly. We're in the minority that day when you have a media that is as white as the American media is it makes it hard. I would argue for a lot of them to take the Trump threat seriously because then not experiencing that threat, personally, it's not white people who are having their. Families prevented from entering the US because of the Muslim ban. It's not white people who are being compared to rapists animals by the president. It's not white people being shot by the police at traffic stops. And then label sons of bitches when they protest those shootings, these fad what I'm saying that the Trump threat is personal to people like you and me, but sadly, not for a lot of our white Anglo-Saxon colleagues whether the liberal conservative. Among your examples. Let me let me out that I'm among immigrants all the time. I'm an immigrant. Some of them have documents some of them don't in many of the the immigrants that I talked to are afraid simply just to go out and drive because they don't know if they're going back to to their homes today's ago, I had the fortune of participation on event with Antonio Vargas. He's filipino. He realized when he was sixteen when applying for a driver's license that he was undocumented in this country. He's probably the most famous commended immigrant this country, but he used to work for the Washington Post, and he wanna pull a surprise. This is the kind of contradictions that we see in this country. Of course, part of our problem as community a Latino community is lack of representation, I'll give you a quick example. We're about twenty percent of the population. But we only have four senators. Well, the same thing happens in the media. We don't have the belittle representation, and we don't have the media represent. Nation that this is a mazing. You mentioned media representation. I mean, I moved here in twenty fifteen and I'd heard so much about how Hispanic Americans are going to determine the future of the US by twenty fifty. They're going to be part of this new majority minority population, and yet, then I turned to the media and communities like yours. Mexican-americans others are so underrepresented in the media. The New York Times the Washington Post don't have a regular columnist on the op-ed pages from any Latino communities. Forget Fox News CNN MSNBC nightly lineups that big name anchors. Don't include a single Hispanic face as far as I can see. Yep. I agree with you. And part of the problem is that when you don't have enough Latino journalist working in these incredible institutions, then they make mistakes how come the Washington Post and the New York Times still called on documented immigrants illegal. No human beings illegal, but still here, you have the New York Times and the Washington Post us in exactly the same terms, sometimes illegal aliens as as the border patrol, and is so tree is in that taking part of an argument is in that standing for a cost or for a group or for a movement that does not represent America correctly. I believe that with more Latinos in positions of power that would be different. I think I've Latinos we are going from big numbers to power, but still we're far far away from from the numbers that we serve and before we finish on a personal note. Ten years ago, you became a US citizen a quarter century of moving. It took so long. It's you know, it's complicated. I I live twenty five years in Mexico, and I wanted to leave twenty five years here in the United States to become a US citizen. And I wanted to do it because I had to cover the war in Iraq. And I wanted to make sure that it was a war that started on their four pretenses. Remember that there were no weapons of mass destruction. And I was concerned about my children. I was concerned about my family, and I was concerned about my country. So I wanted to fully participate. And now, I I am a citizen, but I also have a Mexican citizenship. So people here in the United States cannot understand the fact that I am an Fabian sometimes Mexican sometimes American impossible and blue passport. And sometimes I choose to be American or Mexican depending on how long is the line at the Mexico City airport. Does. And ten years later, given the US we now live in do you have any regrets about becoming a US citizen on because that's exactly who I am. I I am Mexican American Chicano sometimes because I came through through California. Sometimes I'm Chilanga, which means that I'm from from Mexico City. I still as you can you can tell I still speak English with an accent. And I am going from one world to the other and trying to translate from one world to the other from one language to the other from one group to another. But isn't that what so exciting so many of us can hold multiple identities? And there are still so many people out there who see that as a threat something to be afraid of rather than something to embrace. It is it is the United States looking at the mirror, and then realizing that that is very different than what here she had in mind. It is, you know, I don't know if you don't you DNA testing, I did it recently. And I'm surprised too. To realize that I'm part of from Europe, but part of me from Africa and from Asia. Well, I think right now the moment that relieving with Donald from is the United States opening that envelope. And then realizing all my God. We're not white.

future proofing your job at flat iron school you can learn the technical skills you need to launch a career intact at the software engineer slash box today that's what our school dot Com Slash Fox Cares Fisher editor at large recode you may know me podcasts about tech politics and media were part of the Vox Media podcast network today in the red tears my great privilege to have Ken Burns a filmmaker who's been making incredible documentaries bluegrass and I just have always had an affinity for country music in George Bush senior So talk a little bit about why you decided to do this and how you make a decision like this for public television for almost forty years his most recent documentary is a series called country music people don't know this enormous country music fan he also founded an for a second cornmeal this Dolly Parton this is not way back when before your depression during the this Dolly Parton and yet she understood some dynamic this is who she thought was a beautiful woman and she's modeled at it turns out to be this you know it intersects with camp and cut up kitchen high art and it may be that may extend to all of country music I mean we tend to for commerce for convenience for whatever it is and I think her version dollars just goes up to the top and she's got one of the greatest voice she's one of the greatest singer songwriters great businesswoman everything the whole packet edge and she's never sung a wrong note several people in music have told me as we were working on this project that's pretty she comes through throughout the season I literally can't I've been to Dollywood nor she said something to us in the interview I I was privileged to interviewer in in that case and and she one thing at its founding each of its two great superstars Jimmy Rogers was himself a mixture and so we're the Carter family and the Carter family Jimmy Rogers don't sound again so it's all mixed in there no borders the people move back and forth all the time and it just becomes important just throw away these things and just say it late eighties joy dunphy who is one of the three producers myself Dayton Dunkin who is also the writer and Julie Dunphy and I produced the country music but she and I delights us all guardless you can't not when she opens her mouth and things you can't not like Dolly Parton truly American these kinds of of the good part and back and she finds him dead on the floor having not signed the sources of country music and so that's the end of film we made decades ago is now the opening of e anything and then from then on it I'm numerously goes in gobbles up all this other Forums Western Cowboy Music Western swing the Bakersfield sound you started I'd buy buy that kind of on sitting on top of things how colorful which speaks to the stories and then it's also there's some mysterious about it in the the late eighties made a film on Thomas Benton and the final climactic scene is him saying to Rita his wife I think I've finished this thing and I'm going to go out and sign it and he doesn't come back connected to the blues it's connected to jazz it's connected to our in Beit is with our and be the parents of rock and roll so it's connected to rock and folk and pop into rap and even classical me film we just dating selection I was like that's interesting and especially because it worked in the country Music Hall of fame she couldn't get a job waiting tables became a tour guide in something uh on the Kathy Mezei with that painting which I've seen which I've been to the country Music Hall of fame which is a beautiful painting beautiful being so here's the inside dope it can't see like dreams and songs and souls and then at the very end of the film near the end Vince Gill says all of it superficial it belongs to a certain group of people that are now perhaps fly over people and and their stories don't deserve to be told which is absurd in the United States the beginning Merle haggard says in the opening of the film just a couple of seconds after Kathy story he says it's about things we believe in from Africa you've got cowboys guitars and fiddles and it's all there it's just incredible milange mural type thing and she says it's very all things and that's what this is it's got a gospel choir it's got people with lap dulcimer it's got slaves it's got a train got a steamboat it's got the Banjo coming Collagen is just a fundamental truth this does not have the sophistication and complication of classical music or some form of jazz but that back half the Predator he's says it's very colorful and here I invite you in and and I think the whole series and not consciously it it sort of evolved that way is bracketed ever wanted from music is to be moved and so you what you have is this music we we find very easy to categorize very easy to say it's only this thing lyrics universal experiences right when when Hank Williams said I'm so lonesome I could cry there is no one on right landed right it doesn't know what he did but I still miss someone go out on a party to look for a little fun but I find a darkened corner 'cause I still miss someone own never in the truth means that it's it is main lining with very elemental but deeply personal music and Over her blue eyes I see them everywhere I missed the arms that held me when all the love was there I wonder if she sorry for leaving what we begun there's someone for me somewhere but I still miss someone it's a great song that isn't fantastic and it also Echos Bob Dylan a lot of member their history textbooks with Thomas Hart Benton and grant wood photographs that's how we understood American history visually kind of muscular hyper colorful you knew nothing about but then got that education what she describes and very about that painting because I think it really beautifully from the entire series people of my age a huge problem with billboard for awhile not letting that beyond the country and you go who cares right right the Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan we have again it's very funny we sorta end this with Roseanne having to sing that it is memorial service at the Grand Ole opry but way back in bill and it mirrors something that at the very end of the film Marty Stuart who sort of our Zelic throughout the film he seems to have been everywhere in the history country music or absorbed that history auto garage everything into its own little silo and then we we make it a separate island nation magazine yeah any policy is if you need some passport to get there but country end set I'm the coolest thirteen year old when she went to school the next day rental leases at one point you know I just did songs that I love and they told me I was rockabilly than the when you take on a subject which is in this case music as I did a couple of decades ago on jazz when people brought their instruments brought their voice and they scattered or they you know at one point win but one of the things that that I thought was very interesting it'd be one of the songs one of my favorite songs was all fly away which I think is I'd forgotten about it the joy of birth the sorrow at death a broken heart anger jealousy rage look what I did to my lady look what my Old Lady did to me how do I get right with God and so a huge part of these universal human questions is the search for redemption us a question about what is the meaning of life now that okay so much of it is from that genre talk a little bit about that so there is an in fact I can go to Winton he said we all have an ethnic heritage but we have jazz it runs through blues runs through pop and it's mirrored by the Jimmy Rogers types that are Saturday night the rogue scams as Charlie Parker Dizzy Gillespie's bebop chops share fast and furious and then it's somebody just breaking into song and we love that extra dimension episode four or five he and Bob Dylan Johnny cash and Bob Dylan are full Yano and Roseanne says Bob Dylan knows I still miss someone better than my dad says these are airlines passed down where somebody says well let me just pick up this is how Marty Stuart says on the Mandolin does that what Bill Monroe did it sounds like somebody's trying to imitate in jazz race down in does the entire orchestra we bring win because he also says like Merle that music is the art of the invisible that means it works on it just fundamental where are you and a good deal of this is born in the church and the Carter family represents a huge edition that runs through number one song of every group of music gets a certain royalty a certain you know I think I'm the only person I've watched Nashville of course I love that Britain Bob Jones say yes to coming on his nationally broadcast show you just never saw Bob Dylan on national television they're using girl from the north country with Johnny cash and as Rosen thank ash says actually all at my door the leaves are falling a cold wild wind will come sweethearts walk by together utter American thing the synthesis nothing everything's always a connection everything's always an alloy stronger because of its constituent parts and that's why especially right so I'll give you a really good example and this is a wonderful kind of mind blowing thing is that there's a nineteenth century him that gets taken by an African American turned eighty this is the story the original American lead guitarist is mother May Bell Carter Right the original sort of caning voice that coming Toya's rock then he told me I was folks and they told me I was popped and I was told me was this and it begins to tell you that that we waste so much time it's just like a little nauseous we church which Lesley riddle the song catcher with Ab Carter A. knows very well 'cause it's wonderful Gospel stom- called when the world's on fire the Carter family and so every once in a while Dolly just brakes says this is the song that we heard from granddaddy who's saying it mummy who's saying it to me and then you understand had one hundred percent link there was amazing because you really do see it because I think that's what the films as well as linking linking people with other people and of course johnny cash you could easily wires an african-american pal to travel around and try to pick up these melodies that come both from a white Protestant tradition both secular as well as religious inherited that's much more important it happens to me no less than it happens to you so what country music is engaging are these age old themes like the lyrics and writes this land is your land all with the same melody around the world's on fire little daren Powell mine this land is your line so you begin to see the is faster than any other art form we INNOC- only art form that you can't see let's talk about the the different parts of that Thomas Bernhard thing the church part I obviously the Mount Rushmore of country music like ap Carter like Hank Williams Johnny cash like Bill Monroe they all have African American mentors goes off and your eyes glaze over but when you're dealing with it at at a at a pop level at a country music at a at a blues at an rn be level out of as Rosanne cash would say out of the bedrock formations that have been around as old as the Earth is Sarah Carter AP is a song collector that wean the US and us into what would Jimmy Rogers represents and what brings to the table is this huge dynamic of a mix tutors who take their jobs from here to weigh up here that justify their position in Mount Rushmore Jimmy Rogers is suffused with the blues and all of the folk tradition. Okay we're so polarized anybody who suggests that what's really American is to pull out this one thing right you automatically a priori is he still sent to it all the time but now I'm listening Johnson a Cappella for us and that was so great Sashi as folks to bring their instruments and sometimes that meant their voice family was to well first of all this is a story that surprisingly is is a story of strong women all the way through and this is not true jazz which is a fraternity is not true of rock which is it's art it's art exactly so talk to the Carter family was one part of it and then Jimmy Rogers Jimmie Rodgers is coming from southern Mississippi he's a little bit more about Sunday morning there about family about church about mother about home and he's about the road he's about the bar particularly the lungs and you have to realize at that time tuberculosis is the number one killer in America they're saying spinner up you know Jimmy Spit up like enable they've been able to transcend perhaps the financial circumstances of that poverty but they have never forgotten where they've gone to an unlike any other musical form country music star but it is in fact as the songwriter and it said three chords and the truth is going to ask you about it was a great that was a great way also opened it so he says this and what he's done I love the melody ditch the lyrics and have one of their biggest hits Little Darla Palo mine same melody Woody Guthrie comes through loves the melody ditches you can't go to Mick Jagger and say hey man great second-set right you can't go to Leonard Bernstein said you nailed that first movement Maestro you don't have a chance but you can tell garth an equally as interested in which is the US along with we and our that has a kind of intimacy that we can talk about and I think the stories in country music kind of reverberate tip Bob Dylan there's another moment about when oh no they're completely tied and of course it's only their friendship that permits Johnny cash to ask and more importantly someone goes out in our world today and is frank about an addiction are frank about a pain frank about a loss and Jimmy Rogers was about that so people has he understands where the makeup of US comes from and not just the US capitalize version but the two letter plural Pronoun and that Song You wrote you know from Boulder to Birmingham the way you sang that he just was allowed me to express my grief that's the great secret of country music and I haven't once mentioned the identity politics right right absolutely one of the things I want to talk a little bit of women and African Americans let's talk about that those contributions one of the things you take on this I will like to gravitate in this identity politics which runs both ways in go into appropriation so when Ray Charles is given creative control of an album for means is that white people have taken black music and made it their own and here's the the opposite side of that because we always how much that Song meant you can tell I'm Lou Harris we're Kathy Mataya my mom died of the same thing or I lost my lover too in the same way you did and the first time in his unbelievable career he chooses to record modern sounds in country and Western music that's released in early sixty been a waterboy on the all black crews of the southern Mississippi Railroad they're laying tracks so he is suffused with the blues all the other great early people mixture and this cross pollination so what's so surprising and and in some ways satisfying and liberating is to see the S. level that we've ever heard that singing who who is as good as him aretha Franklin Marvin Gaye Sam Cook at that level and he's recorded an album of country songs yeah he's going to have and he comes up and becomes the first grade superstar of music and every other title at Blue Yodel number this or Yodel this or blue he's about drinking he's about disease he's got to break yellow says he's going to die super young but he's willing to talk about it and it's it's wonderful sir you call white men's Whitesman soul music or is that right correct in the in the book Kris Kristofferson says he says it's it's kind of the white people soul music and listen to their stations and white people listened to their stations and never the Twain shall meet completely false our whole identity of Americans is this the African American influence throughout the history of country music and more important the continuing influence after Mother Mabel and Sarah Carter of women of white and black in the American south that suffused with the blues and with the folk tradition the Carter family's doing it to their collecting African American songs and reworking them but they feel ours are like that today or last chapters called don't get above your raisin that'll southern saying you know don't get too big for your Britches don't forget where you came from because unlike rod weakened the Allah and so what we're doing with my homework is that later story and Arthur slice injure junior said that we suffer today talk about that I think when he says it I I notice even as I've watched a thousand times there's a little bit of a hitch in my giddy up because I go don't go don't go there AKAM premium subscription Adt com dot com slash decode that C. A. L.

Singer at the from too much pluribus and not enough UNOM I'm in the business of them I just wanted I want to be able to tell stories that we can all share it we'll get to that but it isn't thing soft and easing they're going to do hard she's like a singer this beautiful love song valid then she breaks into hard headed woman and then you've got patsy Kline are focused taken that up and might come back with a black eye if they did bring it up but she's willing to say she's not sustain year don't come home and drinking and then you have Loretta Lynn Loretta Lynn is singing. Don't come home a drink and with love and on your mind and the pill well before right anyone else in Ron because Dr Saturday night and Sunday morning and then you have to send him more so Sunday morning is there to talk about the Carter family because I don't people realize how important this right immediately ameliorated by the presence of Charley Pride comes in I believe there's a country Serena in and some make you cry but you'll feel better what current jury music's gotten polarized that way because it isn't like whenever I tell people I think what Namibia Red State read why would you be housing in God didn't make Honkytonk city well you know she's fantastic minded Jackson who does twenty years before Tina Turner does we're GonNa do the people who understand what that means so and then and then I haven't brought up you know Dolly or Reba or Cathy or Mary Chapin Carpenter or all these strong women that have been right perpetually through country music so we're talking about that more with Ken Burns actually my favorite literature remains you're the reason our kids are ugly yes no no no details credit scores things you really don't want stolen were taken from customers of a pretty major credit card company this sort of attack is happening more frequently than ever kind of binary response it's either yes or no whereas life and art which both imitates it and leads it is express VPN dot com slash decode an arm yourself with an extra three months of express VPN for free support the show and protect yourself that's expressed V was called explained in every episode is fifteen to twenty minute deep dive into one important topic this week that topic is called I got an early preview and watching it uh-huh dialectic but what is dealing with are the things that the polemics dialectics are supposed to deal with and never do because they immediately default the impact of women on it you mentioned you just went through a line of amazing women singers reba mcentire Patsy Kline Kathy Matteo one is drawn to I always love you just think you and I think we can write a country song because the chorus of of that song as I will always most provocative thing is the connection to religion as Raza Aslund says in the episode cults Plus Time Equals Religion make sure you check it out by searching for your companies are getting hit and leaking your private information like sieves so how can you protect yourself checkout express VPN dot com slash decode of you I will always love you I will always love you just like Hank Williams Simplicity Rab Liars extraordinary g now but Joe Lean I would have to say did express VPN is an APP for your computer and phone that in crypts and Secures Your Data Express VPN connects you with just one click it's lightning fast and cost less than seven N. dot com slash decode for an extra three months free.

yourself and your data use my specialty Dolly Parton obviously at the top but the game I think and still at the top of the game astonishing my favorite song of hers it remains Joelene Oh of course we're here with Ken Burns really needs introductions filmmaker who's made amazing documentaries for public television for almost forty years most recent documentary series is called country music which talking about bucks per month if you care about your online privacy and safety you shouldn't be on the web without it my passwords are very secure I'm GonNa tell you how I do it but it's genius Oh the art can accept complication it can accept something that is different from the thing that it's saying that to me is where our salvation lies of all of the the music I don't know anything better than Joe Lee you know it's like it's a perfect song it is it's the perfect so so there's no polemic here there's ause meaning we need to be reminded that it is possible to transcend what is a fairly superficial response You know even as we think about politics and how things are in such disarray it's that thing I mean I I I've been out touring the country all over the place and there's been a few times doesn't understand what Hank Williams a redneck meant when he said I'm salons a mica cry and utterly reject your idea that you would and people have tried to sort of bring in political dynamic to it and you realize the way the questions Manasseh said you've just in some ways implied that some redneck it's sorry that he said I'm sorry that politics got in the way because there's no one more country than what he goes one hundred percent yeah one of the things that people you just anything you listen to his is clear presumably country music went in a different direction like we have the Nashville sounds so the Nashville sound is a response to rock and roll rock and roll all of a sudden the call nobody's buying country anymore hey they treated the blacks you know all of a sudden you have a sense of this bubbling up from the people who built the country but have never reaped the profits or the benefit there's great music I mean the tendency is oh you sold out you're trying to be this it's ask lines crazy wouldn't written by Willie Nelson who who you know zoom a lack of humanness in the person that you feel might be a political opposite to you at this just at this moment and it got a huge amount of applause insurance company and they put on a barn dance wls does Charlotte does Dallas does like Shreveport does like all these other places and their barnes name changes I believe the Great Country Song that most people say is the best countries he stopped loving her today by George Jones is an example of that but then you have the bakersfield sound which is Buck Owens we need to define it and you don't need to define I think that's what we've found is that just about every time we were attempting to sort of focus down right Nassfeld all that Milange that is country music and fills a gigantic auditorium every single year and then broadcast every single Saturday night me a market for old time hill country music meaning white anglo-saxon Protestant Scotch Irish stuff and there is and he records this guy in Atlanta as were sears has WLS Chicago world's largest store they have wls am in Nashville with a big transmitter stands for we shield millions it's in other great who's just unbelievably great is that then it became even worse many purist would say with a country politics sound well okay well country music is really lost its way because women can't get on or this isn't broadcaster some computer as programming twelve hundred this is it's always been commerce so they're trying to get some crossover success so instead of fiddles they got violence instead of nasal harmonies they've got the Anita cursing or the Jordan narrows backing them up and there's a straight line between them so how did you decide between what was country because you know you do have bluegrass you have I mean is patsy Kline bluegrass country is she following the digitization of the maddox brothers and rose and Merle haggard and then later Dwight Yoakam saying no no no we're going to be unabashed we're GONNA keep the Twang we we're still about not ident- opry still comes on Saturday night it's still puts on two dozen three dozen shows a night from gingham dresses to electric bands with drum kits wonderful accident there's a life insurance company the National Life and Accident Insurance Company which starts a radio station like every other company Robertson from Texas and it's sold and Phil and John Carson Cells and and then Eck Robertson says you know I think if you come down to Virginia the second year done on Saturday night you get in the car and you travel until the next Saturday night in that area and you get as many gigs as you can and then you're back at the opera you have to show up back there Edward can't be used by the people who use it in a pejorative sense but can be used by the people who wear it and say you know f you right back and then broadcast all across the country and you know the business model has changed a little bit we're going to get into that model has completely changed on so many other things that it would be hard music or this sort of the USA US country music which is not even go there couldn't meet someone more progressive than what he got three exactly who is most definitely country Mardi suicide city politics Bert were about the experiences of people that were dispossessed and we know there is a common theme you know if you're called oak is that any different Merle haggard says than the basically he's also doing what's called race records what we would call the blues right and having some success and then someone says Duh maybe there might artist hottest music in that in that field is fascinating this guy recognized that he understood it and and right there he's trying to make a buck you know he's technologies one completely new and the other been around for a few decades the phonograph has been around for a few decades and people have them but this thing radio and this guy this was this was riveting so he's the one that sort of stuff so he starts at a film John Carson there's been somebody else who's been recorded guy named the identity of a hillbilly and for many years for decades it's called Hillbilly music as a kind of both derogatory but as a badge of honor just as the you know strewing the seeds out broad casting these you'll look at twenty years later and that's the secondary definition it means from one point creative bone in his body he does have one right but he's he knows as in all things that there's always a commercial element the way you find out about some of these taking too the place in Virginia I can show you where this music comes from an he's from southwestern Virginia town called gay lax or someone is is from their end the very beginning most record stations are not for decades are not playing records people are coming in showing a microphone right right and that's the way you hear that any records lots of groups and they are not not enough and then the local paper advertises it and then the Carter family shows up and he's saying they just been doing it accidents one night to the Grand Ole opry and it's the longest running radio program in the history of the it's also centrally located so they don't pay much on the opry but it means that be a member of the opry but what you do in between is your business and you do as many gigs how is that Change House Nashville changed in that regard well I think it's still there for fun ride churches and funerals gatherings and they're from Virginia and then Jimmy Rogers shows up accidentally in town and he doc it's it's a very interesting dynamic in Dali says you know you know we can call each other hillbillies but we would you if you call me that from the outside then you're you're in trouble and I think in any art form the artists in any generation don't WanNA stand still they don't want to just play the old stuff they want to go and push it's called the Big Bang and this happened in the summer August of nineteen twenty seven and almost on successive sessions I think it was the first of August that the Carter family was recorded and then the fifth that Jimmy Rogers came in and Jimmy Rogers and the Carter family just took off and until the depression began to crimp sales they were the hot the least we would imagine it's the least technological brand of music not a lot of electric now although increasing and different people do different things now at the very beginning of why we even know the guy I'm thanking his yes zone idea that I knew a lot of our country there's a white guy who's selling how is just starting and you know if you looked up in the dictionary the word broadcasting in nineteen ten it would be a farmer walking long furrow with a little bag of seeds and him straight to many points same idea of reaching people through this new medium radio and this is what the recording plus the playing and strip down and spare but from the beginning there's been this tension between something that's kind of over orchestrated if you will and the pure sound whatever that is tensions I mean if you think about the outlaw movement and Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings rebelling from these over heavily orchestrated checked off and saying look this records and their ethnic records and their what all kinds so is Romanian Japanese and his friends coming and he's trying to supply so Ralph Peer sets up in Bristol Tennessee Virginia this main street is divided one size test one size Virginia he sets up on the Tennessee side and he comes in family it's hard to speak about some of the things that have characterized country music through the decades insider dealing with more nuanced senses of love and loss in that way like pop and it's got drum kits and it's heavily electrified and you can't hear or the stuff that really distinguishes itself is the stuff that has a nod to the millions of copies and and they gain a kind of control and saying no we can make it the way we want but this is going to this day you can hear people knocking named John Carson who's a factory worker not been up in the hills for decades but he changes his name to fiddle Giancarlo the Rube and where the barn dances and the grand opera and all the other things get their start it's really fast we when you're talking about that took a little bit at the technologies of it because country music is really at the door of country music and saying well I guess I'm in Americana and roots now I don't know how I got out of the country but countries only male and countries only this thing that sounds more and he's so wrapped himself and his music and his story the lyrics around the Mike that someone said when when Hank Williams started singing is like Vince Gill them door Yokum they understand the tragedy they reflect it but there's stuff going on there's a joy right from having built the country about the net the national impact because using the nationalization but national steel where it's where it's at fluid that impact is it's usually is just one of the instruments the fiddle the the Banjo cash from Africa and the tar so it has the sense of being shen at it really the audience and the commerce side of it vote on that where we don't like the way you're going are we do love the way you're going this is something new so and songs that's Hank Williams so I mean you've got somebody who fits in the tradition has mastered the modern form of Presentation Hank Williams went up music changes in music have had on it you know you talked about you referred to little laws and That song that was an interesting it was ridiculous to me I was like superstar dentists the question of level nobody's been at the level of garth and he's growing up watching these kiss concerts and and Queen and all of this a naked lady could go by behind an African elephant and nobody would know and that's a test and so you know and Garth is doing a variation good what survives I mean I couldn't tell you right now who of the top thirty people should be in the Pantheon I can tell you in thirty years because we can allow old stuff that has to it has an edge to it and it may in fact have to do a lot with the life that people been wrought up and if you're in an upper middle class a hat and it's but he's an if you think about it he's a combination of these beautiful heartache ballads Hank Williams and these wonderful kind of drink it's nobody's more country than garth and yet he brought in these stacks of amps and these fires and he's the propelled through the air and Mary poppins her and they go this is terrible demos as a bad demo let's just put it out so it'll die a quick death and then Willie will be more compliant too what we want him to perform and of course it sells trouble commenting on it because we don't have as history requires the passage of time and therefore the perspective that allows us to triangulate with a little bit more certainty about what mm he breaks up with his band the ten eve- ramblers and then goes in alone and they become the is like lightning striking twice what we've always wanted our country people to be are these tragic figures in the Patrick Williams and Jimmy Rogers mode and he these things and yet is often the tail that wags the dog rather than the other way around the way in which not only my children but but I am captured by these that he's so mesmerizing in the showmanship of it in that way he sells the songs where it whether it is at heartbreaking bowed more than so much still left to happen but I I think the things that we see across the board in the fact that technology has opened up all the this is meaning and meaning accrues duration the work that you're proud of the relationships you care the most about have benefited from your sustained attention and they are not doing what any if you walked outside today. three-quarters if not one hundred percent of everyone on this block yeah would be so he's into production but he's as has his wife says in the film he's his career nobody's attention is the singular focus you don't write a great country song because you're inattentive you write it because you forest and done it and that's the story of Hank Williams whether he audience are on their phones right right now you hope that they're tweeting something but what does that mean because the end of the day the only thing that matters addicted to this as as anyone but I don't get too deep into all of that because I think it is such quicksand and now we know from let me go into this studio which just two three instruments my guys I just let us record a plane and the executives listen to red headed stranger ah I think of having orchestrated as garth brooks he isn't really what I mean it's interesting he was sort of the first superstar would you will you know Jimmy Rogers is the first a Coda to follow follow Johnny cash to his death in two thousand and three so that's where it is and we're aware of what's going on but we feel uncover looking down their device and so how is it that you participate in life and so I've I've been very measured in my own acceptance of technology I'm just as most of the new show impeachment explained relaunching on Saturday October nineteenth we're living through history and it has these two weird speeds twit one asong requested whenever anyone passes it's like amazing grace or will the circle be unbroken and then he sings it at George Jones's funeral and he threw it he breaks down and cries and Patty things up all these slow moving issues that don't make the headlines every day what is a high crime and misdemeanor like what did the founders mean when they wrote that how partisan polarization playing in and so we're going to try to prices that we hold in our hands right you can go to a screening of a film in which a filmmaker has worked in my case for in the country music for eight and a half years and have a screening in there a third of the put together show here it's going to hit both of these in their own way talking to some box journalists who are covering this and making sense out of what happened that we then also easing back half of the show it's like but but but Ma'am I am tonight so when you look at modern country I WANNA I do WanNa tell you what the impact of the Internet and service also don't serve us you know my my daughter goes to my number three girl I have four goes to a private school just started and they have a rule that you can't be on your loveless has to pick him up and carry him I think there's a metaphor here about focused attention not a metaphor it's just a fact of truth of life and so much of these technologies talk with an expert somebody's been studying somebody who has an angle on it the show begins again October nineteenth on Saturday and it'll come at every Saturday after that so please subscribe at Apple Pie the of life isn't the REBA mcentire this exact favors of hers as fancy I Love I can listen to that song on repeat and of course Jesus take the wheel is my face three area including with technology and where he's going with it and thinks about it we take a quick break back after this I'm inclined editor at large box and I am host in fifteen minutes or fifteen days that's where it is or or or Vince Gill writing go rest high one of these albums used one of these songs that you think have been around for hundreds of years he writes it casts or Stitcher or advocate your podcasts see don't Miss An Episode II Patel Editor in Chief of the verge host of the verge cast is the stuff happening every day and every week like are they talking about Australia and whose is like idiot ambassador to the EU and how do you make sense of that and then on the other hand impeachment obviously Teresa so I'm a little bit out of my depth I we are historians we stopped in the mid nineties height of popularity when Bilman road is it's it's so listen to it all the time makes me laugh we're here with Ken Burns director of several documentary series most recently country music we're talking about that we'll talk about that and every country song I don't know why totally appropriate I say it all the time to people whenever I have a trouble I'm like Jesus take the wheel I'm not particularly religious don't miss out he's a wonderful human I love it when he married when I was like I will rethink garth brooks no he's he's one I think in some ways writes verse at the death of his friend Keith Whitley who dies of alcoholism he sets it aside and his own brother dies a couple years later he picks it up again and he finishes it and it's a beautiful own as you travel between classes at my end so and so people have to lift their heads up in media others until you go and you think wow what happened what happened and you know when you say water me a pizza Yeah Vladimir's listening to right right right right but when we get back here and talk with Kimber is about what's changing the documentary even revamping the virtuous more and more lately and coming out episodes twice a week sometimes even at third bonus episode on Tuesdays I talked to influential people around the world of tech like Microsoft founder Bill Gates and other tech exacts like the founder of lime scooters the CEO beyond meat we must have been talking a lot of reporters and academics about the major pressing policy issues in tech like facebook's content moderation editor Joe Robbie thanks for listening to this episode of Rico Decode I'll be back here on Monday tune in then wanted the tactile thing when you've got unlimited amount of digital space to record stuff there's a lassitude that enters into your work and so I've always tried to be conservative Oh didn't switch out a film everybody was by two thousand out of film and shooting digital until two thousand and ten because I still the only with gender we're dealing with really tough stuff and brings you to the idea that somehow the past is something simpler than the and this will get to onum now that than it is decade of fury on the part of people from the outside what you don't do that you're still analog and fury from the inside of people saying look you know I came here to be an intern and for two hours takes two minutes but then that gives you a range of a thousand things and then there's no there there right and then what matters and they're still has to be a thing that matters so insist I have to turn on a machine that's worth millions of dollars and do twenty nine steps and at that point you're tired and you want to go home and you'll see it on your phone when it's out right I also your smocks because there were working in a cellular process photographers who are still developing have gloves because it's a chemical process everybody happened I watched it they're perfectly fine perfectly fine I we I make it for the the big screen of a big TV I mean even the filmmakers on keeping the form these are handmade films still even though it's ones and Zeros and everybody's got a mouse and a keyboard which I don't like the I want to be able to hold real one learn how to shoot a horse right but I needed to get to a place where I knew the tail wouldn't wag the dog because you get so seduced by the table pets take shortcuts or you have the tyranny of choice you know when I'm an editor analog I go wow I just asked the editors something it's either going to be two hours today's now that today's takes two hours in and he's also the founder of an online video destination called unum now you talked about not enough too much pluribus unum talk a little bit what you're doing there and the impact of technology free listen and join us so again subscribe to the virtual wherever you get your best we'll see there we're here with Ken Burns who is obviously famous documentary episode one and after you and I have dinner I can say hey let me take you back and let me read this up and show you what we're doing with Huey long for the civil war baseball or jazz or whatever it is can't happen now just it's absurd I can do that now that's wonderful but I'm glad I waited because it kept us in control the process and the tail didn't wag the dog so that's important are you forced to do that I love going out to screenings where it's all and you're in a dark room with strangers which I think that communion is super important that brings us together so let me take the technology part of it and then owners in the way I've seen friends get too involved not in content but in sizzle and just still wanna be working at the end of episode in Your Business on your documentary I watched your entire documentary on an eye pattern iphone yet I did not watch on television I you know I signed into pbs while it was sort of a badge of honor to learn this analogue stuff but you know you asking me to learn this stuff is like like I came here to learn how to drive a race car and you're telling me that primes I prefer the Old Testament ecclesiastes which says what has been will be again what has been done will be done again there's nothing under the Sun I know from now not force it just it makes sense the advantages far outweigh the stuff but I will swear by delay I think that was an important delay it just didn't ten with the same fervor as did the opening intro things fire death you know for us a big deal is to put a red line under something David alone just tell a story story is and then one hundred percent hundred okay so we're there so people say history repeats itself it does not never just tell me one thing that repeated itself were condemned to repeat what we don't remember understand why that's there but it's not true Mark Twain is supposed to have said history doesn't repeat itself but it in two thousand eleven is when you went from two digital basically to digital everything and I still take my cameron I'm okay I still miss the tactile painters all right so what tells you that there's nothing new under the Sun what that tells us that human nature doesn't change and so that studying history is actually studying the present about that and the same social media because people call you quaint or artisanal but you know is fine it's handmade it's not quaint we're dealing with race words Miller for a chat show we cover the latest intech news and product reviews bringing our other reporters around the verge that show his party listen to it you can hear all that more if you subscribe to the virtuous wherever you get your podcast can now draw on fade out now I can put a fade out on I used to wait until this expensive process called optical printing put your name on the lower third journalists you know I mean if you're dealing with leadership you're dealing with war dealing with politics you're dealing with gender you're dealing with all sorts of things that completely recur and re occur all the time don't repeat they just end the future and it's the best teacher we have so if you get into the repetition or you think you can make us say you WanNa make film ballot contemporary moment in political it's advocate pulling with these universal themes that we have about freedom the tension between individual freedom what I want and collective freedom what we need that's been thing you're dealing with race those ideas I did so what if you could the way you play disc jockey at home make a mixed tape of the theme say take leadership right or immigration and an hour and five minutes or twenty five minutes so UNOM is about curing those mix tapes so the evergreen nature of history and realizing that whatever it which is fine first amendment everybody gets to do that they're really great documentaries that come out of that but it's skyrocketing the

"It's all about turning buttons and slide right Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding winding its Whole Spectrum Cycling Show forty-six here folks we got Jay Back in his Usual spot there. Hi everybody splitting splitting. Tony and J K is Shannon today Krona Shannon made the trip up for mckenry down there Illinois Illinois. Come by some parts. Do you have any Wisconsin jokes as being an Illinois guy. No no hang out mostly here. I got jokes about my stay on. My state is joke right on. Yeah don't tell us in Illinois. Let's good one clean. Oh it doesn't really matter it doesn't have to be I just WanNa Shannon's daughters. Might listen to this morning. I can tell you my paycheck and show you the taxes. That's a joke. Why why do trees in Wisconsin Ben South? Aw kazillion noise sucks. Jesus we're not even going to get into bears jokes no. I'm not a football fan so I'm good. Are there there you go all e cranky. How about that Fifty degrees Sunday all man fifty one there was a record here. I don't know if he got record. Where you are? But according to Mir meteorological winter which starch December first we have yet to have a day below Oh twenty degrees which is insane giant from December first until February. Whatever it is today? We've not edited a nineteen degrees. Colder Day let us crazy that is not trucks. We were as uh we were riding the slip and write down at Silver Lake and it's hard to mashed potatoes. `tatoes real quick. Wow yeah that's better than yeah so Saturday. It wasn't as it was Saturday was nice. Saturday was fine but towards the end by second lap. It was Gone did you get out there kind of set it up the day before. They said they had it all groomed. Yeah I had to take a trip out to Madison to deliver a same Barrow. Jumba framed J. P. and he happened to be running an event at Norsk golf club or something and and Mount horrib- not mentioned grumpy troll troll. Is there all right across the street from there. There's a hole in the wall Yup bar diner awesomeness but we should go there. More often cassettes. That's nice ride out there. Yeah well if they would keep this course that they had for that race going which I don't think they can. I think it was a a one time thing but it was like a two and a half mile of course on this Gulf course fairly open golf course but kind of hilly and it was really really nice. Nice they'd been grooming snowmobiles and then they ran a snow dog over at the I think the morning of the event maybe but it was actually some of the best pack trails ridden in awhile and I bet the next day way. Take your this. You had to slip inside so imagine it it Glazed up. It went away pretty quickly and then now that close to the blackhawks trails. That's it is on the west side of Matt it's west of Madison out horror which is like fifteen miles west Madison Blackhawk. I think is more North West from where you take one fifty. Do you want to get to not horrible. I asked That's the next huge ashes this Saturday and I asked if he was going to be there he said the trails are awesome. But I think it's been. Oh Oh yeah right at Blackhawk. Yeah that's A. That's a ski hill that has Trails to and normally. I think you have a pass to ride there for some somehow. They're you're getting a deal. Where if you enter the race you get a pass for the rest of the year leary up so yeah? That sounds cool. Yeah I was asking. JP is going to be hanging out there. But I guess it's been hidden up north north. Jp are actually ever work because every frigging day. He's supposed to photo riding somewhere. I'm jealous to do. Come on man. Who was icy today and I had a beer either? Maybe maybe that's well. He was talking about the reason and he got the scenario is his buddy down in Iowa and he are planning on doing the tour divide and they agreed twenty twenty eight days hundred ten ten miles a day. I'm like oh well we might extend that though if it's taking a little longer so he you know what are your time to go out there and ride the great. That'd be awesome though we got somebody to track and watch. Yeah Yeah I don't think he's. I don't know that they're doing the race. I think they're just riding the trail but I'm not positive. I think you know you can ride that trail just as a trail so check you can probably do it in like three years worth of chunk chunk in the middle couple years ago the other one picture so I was the dude leaning on his bike. And you're Kinda like what's he doing. And then you see the bear in the distance like Oh yeah I wouldn't be riding either. It's like he's waiting for the Bertolini Mike. I don't WanNa ride bikes to a situation where I could get killed by a bear. Well that's when you ride and one of those onyx hubs is Super Silent. You know maybe can just roll right past them without them even worried about the noise from the fact that he's GonNa Smell my tastiness. Yeah and they can run the best nervous a couple of coyotes and the oak leaf north by a thirsty Fox. And I was like okay. You can just go away now at. Amman aren't aren't you know this is your turf brother. Okay go just just walk across. We have city council. Well you could see coyotes right down the road there on the remember no problem Nice Great. They're here I more maligned deer everywhere along that trail on the river. Oh Oh my God. There's deer all time big agreed. Stuffed animal over on a north by the river stuck in the tree of a line. I could. It's like. Oh yeah there's logging line. Yeah so one of the things I thought interesting about. JP's and his buddies von on their doing single speed also. So I was thinking what I would ride on the trail. Besides I have the Chamba Stella Tie which probably we would use but I took that Old `Tatanka out with the Roloff race. The rohloff would be on the could use all the years I can get. Yeah what's the that's nuts. Man The elevations gotta be crazy. Yeah it is. It's yeah I I haven't ridden route so I but he gets over ten thousand feet in some spots. I believe US flat-lander yeah you're sucking a lot of wind. Having lived out there for a little while and watching people try to acclimate mate without spending a couple of days and late over the mountains and they're suddenly throwing up and stuff. It's like well if you had any water. Well no beer in in Denver. Here's here's what am I doing to myself and I'm not doing anything. Did nine thousand five hundred feet and you sleep like a baby when you're not taking that much oxygen after about a week you're used to it but it was like wow you are literally dying thousand feet you know. It's fifty degrees out. Feels like the middle of summer in Wisconsin this gorgeous. It is the bed the snow comes out and then it's all about twenty four degrees right right after the happy hour. It's like what happened. Wait a minute. Tempers dropped forty five hundred so Shannon. Tell us a little bit about your rat bike adventures this winter. What have you have you done all the hugest races? So far I've done all the huge effort he's In fact I plan on Doing Blackhawk. which is the fifth race? Ace and then after that and I'll be there for that. That's the finale red sauce with the same data sweaty so lots of competing events answers go over a little later but in Wisconsin. You've got four or five every weekend to pick from for sure. In two years ago it was like nothing. Nothing yet right you just I just had to go find your own adventure back. Dale Pine Sunday. There's a I'm not gonNA gophers later. Memory end up now Shannon knows as much or more about that than I do the Diet. Yes yes Mogae. And Jamie Center put on like a downhill type Fat Bike Enduro. Or what do you call Ren across. Yeah it's definitely using one of the the Bar Snow Bardy runs where they have features and stuff. I saw smudge do a little video of monkeying around a few features but I didn't realize he was attached to. Yeah yeah they'll put a video out last year. I think the two of them did so. Yeah there'll be some way to get your bicske and yourself to the top without pedaling and I think they're doing three runs and the best has two of your three is the current format for your times. And hopefully this'll take off. I mean uncle and Tony `Grande and all went up to a downhill. What last week or two weeks and Duluth area or similar way north of here? Alpine doesn't maybe maybe to catch think rib did it last year at remounted one last dear. I don't know if that's coming to look into that. Little do on. I mean I think Little Switz- has done while I got to see if we if we have one at Rib Mountain in this year. Open your hills. We'll bring the money right so I I don't know I got to figure out what's with little Switzerland's around here is in the summer they still do it but I think think it might be once a month that they do it not positive or might be once a week an hour but they do. CERT- lifts serve it all year long for bikes. And then what do they do at the the rock and Franklin snowboards only or you know what that places Kinda gone up and down over what they do over. There could never quite figure it out so I don't think they allow bikes on it now in they used to have the whole L'Ecole Hill had great trails. But then it Kinda closed for a while. Ilias be wars races there in. Yeah when you first started. They had a couple races are now wieland's Brockett has a location right there in that building. Right so he'll be a metric. kind gotta make sense to have a bike stuff going on right considering. That was a heck of a B. B. M. extract there too that was like a world class track. That's a good bust your ass track speaking of BMX shot to Sam yesterday. Who came in and checked out the large why it oh in the saint came from way in the celebration celebrations? Sean came into pay his bill. And like Oh you wanNA patch so yeah. Yeah and then San Joaquin right after you WANNA beard. He's like No I'm okay. And then he saw Pepsi's Equate. Are they be like I'll get you one. So we're celebrating that I'm gainfully employed again. Yeah Tony the not. Just the bike shop Stalwart anymore. Oh did you you come back to the WHO. Oh No. He's one of those guys again. Do I have to have to fish out. The Fat Burger Parking. Only no no no. I'm not coming back. Oh Oh you're yeah you're being very yeah no no no no no. I stayed state employees. He was very good to me. But since we're not rated here from the word go you know I'm not dealing with. It ever again haul. My God closest we're not nevermind. Next up you go on forever the Subject on top of the hill a shannon brought in the Disputes Mirror Pond Pale L.. Fantastic some leftover spoils from the slip and ride. shoots sponsor that or help sponsor that Nice. That's nice. Yeah yeah they are and they do a good job with beer stuff to for sure out of the Bend Oregon. They're five percent alcohol Z.. And forty isn't it. It's it's tasty beverage. It's amazing. How many beers that taste you? Know that are a similar style can taste you know quite different. But there's a good one it's got some Kinda the animal with a with a on the fan. Good artwork from shoots. I've never had a bad disputes. That's you know. There's there's certain companies that can be here missed but deschutes pizzas always on so this event at Silver Lake. Well how was that format. It was a relay what they did have solo. Men and solo females but that that wasn't decided until tortoise the end it's held by Cambe and raising money for the trails there because now the groomers and everything they're trying to build up the trail L. System at Silver Lake and petrified springs. Go all about petrifying springs. It's nascent easy dollars Thank you guys all know him he. He's erased director. On so I did a relay with Uncle g Hongkou Gomez and Tony Guerande. Nice Freeman really a We did not strong team. Yeah there were stronger. Teams Gomez is getting pretty powerful. He's doing yeah he he actually brought in Our last lap with like maybe ten seconds left. We're all just yelling out. You know but the power down. He came strolling with just a couple of clicks left to the clock but it was a fun day fund. A Mary Bathroom. Seventy fifth in had Brought in all the food there were a Burrito Zor so he does and then there was a chili. Cook off and shoots with the beer gatorade water so all to support Cambe and several trails and a great time. So all these places started grooming this year and we just just got to get him some snow now tonight. One inch start piling up again fucking inch. I'm sorry I want one foot and let it freeze and freeze. Let's stick around for more than four days. I'm just hoping in four weeks from now. They have it up. been cable so well you should be okay up cable. I don't think it's been getting that warm up. There and three years ago was an ice storm right before burkey. ooh Last two years was great. Are you on the rookie. Yep Nice always a good time. Where do you stay? When you're up there and Hayward Cable Ville usually the telemark mark this year? We're staying in a cabin. There's a ton of us that are all just hanging out in a cabin. Yeah there's some great places to stay up there I know Right behind the Sawmill. There is a really cool place and I didn't know telemark was available again. Yeah no the condos the tell all right right right candles yeah not the main lodges. Not that it's still gone right. You know that kind of reminds me the overlook hotel in a way the same thing every time I drive by like whether it's district while Magana Burke's yeah there's been you know I've been I think even at might even have been at a show. I'm gone event later on. That part of the hotel was even closed. And you're kind of wandering around in there you're like this kinda creepy. Terrible mill is a couple of local places. I I think one of the Kohler family people bought that whole property. I don't know if they still have it but that was like well. We just need a private nine hundred acres something so we'll just by this lay. The golf courses still open the airport still up but yeah the Ski Hill. Nothing and had some great times in those condos boy. That's that's a lot of fun in there. It will usually make one person in the cabin a happy birthday birthday so wherever we go. It's their birthday. Good good call. What did they do at? What did they do at Phipps for your birthday? We haven't actually. We've missed that one. Campus Phipps gotta walk in there with George. George George not going to throw you under the bus charge. Hurry but yeah. There was some naked crates. It's back in the old days up there late at night about two in the morning. Not at Phipps but right in the ball right at the Taylor does. Yeah those were some UNDAY's Boecklin. Ralph was still still around before his airplane. Just for the record. You know bad naked. You're all that that's why it's done a two in the morning so it's nine cancer. I can't see you don't get sunburned on your P P. Neither who sounds terrible. You know what he wants. No somber down there Arnaud any right at all so I don't know what the heck else is going. I never as a super bowl this weekend at anybody watch any ADS. That's the only good reason well although I did watch the jeep ad later because I mean Bill Maher. I didn't catch it during the Super Bowl. I'm not sure why I watched the majority of it. I was waiting the chiefs. Of course I didn't watch. Any Midwest is handing Muslim for numbers. Nothing not even a sniff all right so I'm scheming on like okay. If they kick a field goal Kick it off. Okay hold them out the ball back down and then kicked another field goal shooter going back to the jeep end bike even hooked up that bike with all the wrecks and everything josh owner. There they hooked up the bike that jeep electric had electric bike F. It didn't say jeep on the the bike but I guess GPS GONNA go ahead and anyone else. That was the one that was in the commercial. Yeah it's it's Funny Bill Murray's butts on IT YEP and TV. Lenny Lake promoted this week and like I say watch the video because TV lane. I'm like wait a minute. This is a like. How many seconds is that electric jeep bike in there? All bigger. Don't even think it's three are- it's like I was really excited to hopefully see somebody riding on electric fabric. That kyle the shop manager down there. He got to meet by our he met bill. Murray one of the days before that 'cause they were doing all the filming done ice. Let's go vertical. Should get Bill Murray on the line attack in Buffalo Bikes. He's so did did anybody meet the Gopher 'cause he was the commercial with a helmet on. Yeah I don't even know that this year yeah so early Spring Rowsley Rowsley or at least which actually started in November. So yeah so I mean so. It takes three seconds of a fat bike on a super bowl commercial to to be probably the most exposure any bikes ever had in the history of fat. Like anybody at that and it's just got tons of press without even trying saying I probably found a dozen articles on there being a fat bike in that it wasn't like even celebrated as I mean if you looked and it's like Oh yeah you can tell it is despite people due to a layman would say no so. Do the guys down in woodstock deal with cat normally no okay for some. They had seen it but apparently they put their acts on it and all set up for Colorado Company called quiet cat. That's doing the the bike. I guess they other ones too but this one seems to be more integrated with down to batteries stuffed in the in the frame you means late and like the baby maker for trying to talk show that I keep mother show forty-six and show four of the baby maker. Well and the funny thing is is. I commented about the new French which their advertising as a sexy singles speed e bike Mike. Odd Jesus Christ the baby maker and I commented on their post. 'cause that stupid because he called it sexy and it's apparently like Super High Tech. I encourage you to go. Look at the. It's it's it's and he even combatted. He's like yes. It does look similar to the baby maker. What I'm like? Oh here comes the but baby maker but you gotTa have oh baby. I'm wondering. How much of cabinet will be dedicated to E.? By I know you guys are going on Thursday. We'll have a report two weeks from now then couple of weeks down on the road. We'll see if we can do a couple live on the floor interviews. I don't know why we're excited to see what what they I mean. Love them or hate Adamy. Bikes are here to stay. And I think there's opportunities. JK to make some serious as much noise as last week about it. Yeah yeah so I so. As Fat Bike Dot Com guy it was always easy to go to trade shows. Because you have a goal of finding fat pikestaff like stop and while there's other cool stuff. I mean time is so short. If you're trying to get stories you're kind of focused on who. There's some new tires new bike from these guys. Or whatever and those amy me heated grips that I never got which I don't think they make anymore but Going to cab that we're going to be there for what six hours and it's like. What do we focus on? Because has you. Bikes are going to be a huge part of it for sure but I think we'll just kind of have to take it as it comes. I Walk Real. Yep Yep yeah I think I spent a good thirty measures like over access last year because they had the demo bikes with all that and the electronic drop her own really really so you go with the woodshop. Do you go with like even got you. Right on sounds exciting. I'm really stoked for that by the way I postponed my start dated. New Jobs are good. Call official this data Mike No you're given official start date then yes twenty-fourth right on so we're in all these jeep articles. They brought up the fact that you know trails and e-bikes haven't been like getting along yet and I make you guys know who not Mikey. They smile twenty. Nine is a wheel. Builder in Colorado is super writes a lot pretty opinionated on stuff and they. This is like criminal article like maybe two years ago when he was talking about sort of culture of Mountain biking his getting hosed from old school days because he's an old guy you know kind of like me and I just for some reason they had one of these quotes in one of those e bike articles. But I just liked it was so cool because he's like our trails are being systematically shredded. Yes by skidding. In Dombroski straight lining shuttle monkeys and shortsighted Straub aspects. I in an industry that sells the sport largely by playing to the above users. So I don't know what do you what do you see that in. What's happening with mountain biking slash that biking? Some doubt necessarily cross country is much stratas. Definitely brought some attention to it I would say with people shooting for Komo's and such right here. I don't yeah I think in the Midwest you have less of that first of all the terrain doesn't really lend itself to being a complete jackass. You really have to put some fitness into it and you know you don't have have the the runs where you can just short cut. You know turns all the time and start really shredding and skidding and being you know kind of goofy. But I don't think we have shuttled around here anywhere. I think we all right. Possibly the one one's going up the ski hills but I don't think they care you know they're bringing people in there probably maintaining the trails in a way that it sort of encourages that kind of hooliganism. I just thought it was. I just loved the the the words he used to describe the. It's people letter writing. This cracked me up is what that did Dang right so this weekend coming up here in in our area. Yeah besides tomorrow in our area this weekend tomorrow besides the thing at Blackhawk in Madison which is a huge ass race? There's the Badger State Games going on up at underdown north of Steven's point wherever that is and I I didn't even know that. That was the Badger State Games in the race. And then I kinda went. Oh Yeah. They're in the same place so I have you ever done a badger state game so now I I didn't even know they were still doing fat biking in it. I know they done a couple years ago. Four or five years ago in Wasa they did one test so if you WanNa go do the Badger State Games thing. That's up there. You probably already registered though if you're going to do that because that's one of those things racers to and then we talked before about pets Jay's Alpine valley thing I mean there's you know again there's also events up in in hayward and come to Wisconsin discounts if you like that bike and embrace infant do absolutely and Down the road. We got a bunch of other stuff coming. We'll talk about that another week or two but one of the things I'd like to kind of highlight and it's a long ways off. So who knows maybe we can get down. There is the US Open Beach Championships. In rights it's Bill North Carolina. That's no I gotTA linked to the two thousand seventeen video they did and it's it's right on a barrier island and you stay at a hotel there which is it just goes back and forth in front of the hotel around you know mile and half or whatever each way on the beach and they have a really cool course for being on the beach that just on a barrier island so if we're not going to get a winner you might as well take part in summer. I want sand. So we're going to have to go somewhere to get it you you know. If you're GONNA do that that you should come in and either purchase yourself a nice tie chump. Or perhaps you know since it's going to get wet UNOM Wyatt. Yeah Shannon do on a ride. The meeting you can read my out should gen and got himself some fancy new Tan Helga today to get the ten hell. Yeah take. We'll take the white out after the show here. Now check it out. I think that it would be a great beach back. I didn't know about what the rain forecast it. Because that seems to be more of a trail thing right right fortunately but we have other folks. I don't know if I mentioned this last show but when I was at Wyatt last week The red fork now comes in a five eighty five exit crown. which makes it work with the Wyatt geometry really well? That's not the ones around the corner. Here's an that's a Ford Ninety which is kind of unique. It's not that much different. But it's more what the frame was designed for so and I think it is that they work with rent and make take their carbon fork. Yeah more more better better. More more or carbon were carbonized. Friendly Carbon say carbon is pretty cool stuff. I was is in the model airplane game for a long time in our carbon planes are some of the most advanced vehicles out. There they can pull fifty gs in like indy. Cars can do six these do fifty. G'S SO carbon. Strong stuff folks I I. I'm not afraid of it no more I am. I mean carbon CPOS or I have a set of bars but not eleven. Now Yeah you love it now I uh I will say I I will say carbon buyers from a guy that can get some some bar palsy from time to time depending on what bike. I'm writing. They do make a difference anti-vibration full full carbon to me. Is You know I mean by Sir. I just had this discussion someone. Stealing aluminum bikes are environmentally friendly. The forgiving especially as steel bike. It'll tell you for months. It's about to die a carbon bikes. Mike's GonNa die and you're gonNA hurt and I still feel that way. So yeah you want carbon components. Okay you WanNa full carbon bike will then. You're wait we I need go home. You're already. You're already drinking the Kool aid or their retirement bars. And now I ain't GonNa go go. Thank you go further none now if I go if I can if I'm GONNA go with the money to buy carbon. Pardon my French but fuck that I'm GONNA get a Goddamn Anti Shumba and have the last break ever GonNa need my life. So that's awesome there on the wall. No more common. I think those are the well. There's more coming if we've hit the lottery pretty soon right. Those are have to find the next run so you can't go wrong. I mean a tie bike. Will last you forever forever you know. Meanwhile there's still plenty of from lamb and they may be the last ones who knows else we got some. We got some things to iron out on if we'RE GONNA do another run but It's a heck of a bike folks. You should grab one while they're here because they may and orme not come back and if they do get one medium to large is to excels medium and to smalls are there I may have one other one stashed in the back back. But I don't think so and you know they're less Schnitzel Perte. Yeah but Anyway anybody got anything Before we sign off for this week and say goodbye to our listener. Jenin thoughts nothing for coming tyranny interesting this week. Ding Ding Brian. We only got four holes for Mike. We've got four. I taught him will suffer a burger and a beer somewhere so just happens to be across the street. I if you WANNA WANNA go to the best breweries should ask for free leave town. I don't are. They opened the slight. Oh yes of course while rightly wants ANSCHLUSS. Askar's you will. If you've never had NASCAR's Burger to blow your doors. I O Greg that my way this opens once and he said just keep driving. He'll be happy with just another beer. Yeah who isn't already. Well Jen Kosov.

That's indeed dot com slash marketplace. You know what it'd be really nice right about now on a Friday five, maybe six minutes of really good analysis of what the heck happened in this economic week? That's what from American public media. This is marketplace. In Los Angeles. I'm KAI resolve Friday, the twenty first of June. Good to have you along. Everybody, it is written right here in the by laws of business and economic journalism that I have to say this. So here goes the geopolitical news might be getting most of the headlines this week, but one ignores economic reality at one's peril. So we are here for that also for the week on by honest Watson is at the New York Times, John Harwood is with CNBC everybody. Hey, kai. So on a let me start with you, and let's start with trade and something that actually, I think did get lost in the shuffle. While the president tweeted it out. So whenever knows a win for the president, the Mexican Senate approved the US MCA, a big deal even after all the tariff back and forth, that the White House has been doing with the Mexicans last month or so. That's right. So it's kind of ironic. It was Trump's idea to rework this agreement, but it passed in Mexico. Oh, I in the US could actually be the hardest place for it to pass right now. So there is a hold up in congress right now about whether or not they can pass the agreement. The Democrats are saying that the labor environmental, and pharmaceutical provision aren't good enough and Republicans are basically, accusing them of playing politics and holding up this big achievement for the president. The question is, whether the the Trump administration and President Trump has the political savvy going forward to work with the Democrats and give them what they need to pass it. They are in control in the house right now. And the president hasn't always been the smoothest when it comes to cooperating with Nancy Pelosi the we'll see. We'll see what happens here next month. I John let me, let me continue with you and Trey different slice of it. The president goes to the g twenty in ten days or so we are told there will be a sit down with president Xi. They will certainly talk trade. Do you expect any actual movement to happen? I expect that President Trump at the end of the day, when it gets up to the point where China is going to retaliate, the president, potentially may expand those twenty five percent tariffs to another three hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese goods is going to pull back from conflict. China needs a deal. The president needs a deal. We have an economy that is slowing the American business community does not want an extended a trade conflict, nor do financial markets, the president a pays attention to those. I think it's going to be tricky had to see how they can navigate a face-saving resolution I expect that we will get one, though. But Ana the US TR the US trade Representative has been holding hearings this week about that next tranche of tariffs. The president is talking about there's really gearing up for more. Yeah. Yeah. So while the president is considering this US. Air is going ahead and laying the groundwork for him to really upped the ante with tariffs on the rest of goods from China that we have not put taxes on so far. So, you know, I think the stakes are really high and we'll have to see what happens, you know, predicting the course the, the Trump administration is always such a safe activity. Right. But it does seem like the president and his advisers are more and more aware that a bad meeting a bad at come here, clearly has the potential to take the may markets that it could be really bad for the economy. The IMF said recently that if the president were to follow through on this three hundred billion dollar trunch of tariffs. In addition to those already put in place that could subtract, half a percentage point from global GDP. So that's not negligible. And the president is also under pressure, politically to stay tough on China. So that's a calculation that he will have to make. But certainly when it comes to the markets and the economy, they are pushing him towards some kind of resolution John Horwood, a detour here to one Jay Powell on the Federal Reserve. The fed met this week on interest rates, as we all know, decided not to do anything, but then come out and say, in essence, look, we're gonna, we're gonna cut reasonably soon, which comes at an interesting time, because the president is, as is his want squeezing chair, pal, pretty hard, the there, is there is political peril here, but also economic peril, there's no question in J Paul said in to the conversation that you and I have just been having. He said that the weak points of the economy right now our manufacturing investment, and trade services are doing fairly, well, the consumers fairly strong at the moment, but that's a real concern for the economy as we look toward a growth receding under two percent in the latter part of this year. So, yes, I German pal did signal he's going to do that. On the other hand, he was put in a very awkward place by the president with the pressure, even the day before the meeting the. President sang will. Let's see what he does as I decide whether or not I'm going to try to do moat him from the chairmanship. But I do think that there is a legitimate case to be made that the fed moved to aggressively to raise rates, and you have economists on the left as well as the right saying rate should come down a bit. And I expect that will happen if in July or if not then in September on a do you think, as a, I'm gonna take a turn here with John in a minute to the to the debates that are happening this week this coming week, the president the democratic debates. But do you think covering trade as you do that? There's an appetite for trade to become a political issue in the twenty twenty campaign. That's interesting. I mean, I think that there are other issues that are more important to Americans, you know, we consistently hear about health care, but, you know, trade, obviously was something that resonated in two thousand sixteen and we have heard, you know, Democrats try to broach this topic. I think that the president has put them in a little bit of an awkward position because in some respects, he's actually taking on some positions that Democrats, had supported like Chuck Schumer had called for a long time for a tariff against China. You know, Democrats generally more in favor of a trade policy, that would protect American workers support unions, things like that. So, you know, they've had to kind of walk narrow line and say, you know, we support the tough stance on China, but we don't support hitting our trade partners. And, you know, I think he's just kind of put them a bit on their back foot, when it comes to talking about trade. She'll John about the debate. And, and briefly by which I mean like less than forty five cash, it's going to be pandemonium. Right. Two nights ten candidates per night. What breaks through can the economy? Do you think on what is it Wednesday and Thursday? I think the big issue was teed, up by a former vice president Biden, in his remarks at a fundraiser this week when he was speaking to some high dollar donors, and he raised the idea of economic change that makes the economy, more fair that doesn't produce, fundamental alteration in our institutions that on the one side on the right of the democratic debate, and then you've got Bernie Sanders, Lisbeth Warren up pushing on the left side and saying, no, we need structural reform. We need corporate governance reform major tax legislation. That's the fault line in this debate, Ma moderate incremental change in a calmer, political environment, or dramatic changes to address, wealth and income inequality. John Harwood at CNBC on a Swanson at the New York Times. Thanks you too, for your insights, you bet? All right. Have a nice weekend on Wall Street this Friday finished within spitting distance of flat. The major indices did good week over although we'll have the details when we do the numbers. Here with something of a corporate conundrum prompted by this. Unom L'Oreal Paris, that is the Paris brand of the much larger overall loyal parent company, now has a female president, for the first time the conundrum is that you'd think the beauty industry would be one part of the economy, where women would soon be running out of those kinds of firsts in reality. No beauty does have better representation of women in leadership roles than other industries. But men's still dominate the cease, we'd and the boardroom, at least at the biggest companies as marketplace's Tracey Samuelson reports Ethel face day for your typical woman might involve a sunscreen may be too tinted moisturizers or foundations. She wants together and I show an island bronze blush lip gloss mascara. I could go on whether there's a woman at the helm of the companies that make those products often depends on the size of the brand iris, quo is the CEO of Ledbetter, which compiles data on women in leadership at major consumer companies. Personal care performed the highest in terms of or representation, thirty four percent female, that's actually better than any other industry. And then they were among the top performers on executive team representation at twenty four percent, fee balance still for an industry that sells primarily to women close. Those numbers aren't all that great win about in Weiser covers the beauty industry for DA Davidson. She says, when it comes to smaller private companies like glossy Josie Morand thrive cosmetics, you'd be amazed at how prevalent, it is for women to be CEO's, and founders of these beauty companies. It's very common more so than in other industries, female founders can be draw for consumers says Lauren good, sit a beauty analyst at Minto. That's almost a piece of the marketing technique is to really talk through the brand founder, why created this brand it makes the brands a bit more personal and gives is consumers that extra extra benefit. Benefit. Good sit thinks has caught the attention and interest of bigger brands. I'm Tracey Samuelson from Arcus as the supreme court. Winds down its term at the end of this month. We are gonna look back to a year ago today when the court overturned a ban on states collecting sales tax for most online, commerce marketplaces, Eric bears checks, in on how state treasuries have fared since for years states couldn't collect sales taxes from online merchants unless those companies had physical presence in the state. So states were missing out on revenue from online shoppers, an estimated ten to twenty billion dollars a year says Carl Davis with the institute on taxation economic policy. So this is money, that's used the fund schools in roads and police and healthcare, and everything else, it meant, there were fewer dollars flowing in for all these core services, states off five point four percent, increase in sales tax revenues between the time that the season was handed down to this past April according to the urban institute, but it's hard to know. Exactly how much of that is due to the new rules. Some states started collecting taxes later than others. Man's other states. Still don't have the technology sorted out says Jared walls act with the tax foundation. Some of those days are playing catch up and are still trying to put these systems together for their administrative purposes, so they can collect the taxes, but also for the retailers, who need a way to integrate this with their sale systems still isn't easy for smaller retailers to collect the right sales tax for every jurisdiction, which are pomp a law professor at the university of Connecticut says states are trying to overcome that problem with laws that require ecommerce platforms to collect the taxes. What this means is that an Amazon, which for longtime has collected on all of its own sales. Will now be collecting on sales made by third parties and for shoppers looking to avoid sales taxes, palm says at this point there, just isn't any way around them America barris for marketplace. Good people at the World Bank. Tell us that the dollar amount of payments sent home to low and middle income countries by overseas workers. Remittances, is the technical term and hit a record high in two thousand eighteen five hundred twenty nine billion dollars nearly ten percent bump over your earlier. Then those payments really matter remittances account for twenty percent of El Salvador's entire economy for just one example. So it's a strong and it's a growing market, which means more companies want in technology companies among them Facebook is hoping its new crypto currency libra might hurt on that one this week. They're hoping that'll be in the mix. But Facebook is not the only tech company out there, you know, marketplaces and dealer has that one about half an hour northeast of downtown. Los Angeles rural, India sitter, dining room, table with their ipad, but she's not playing a game or streaming Netflix. She's taking care of business. Yeah, I sent money to Macy starting Billy Bean's Mundy is in her, mid sixties works as a cook. At an assisted living home. She's been sending money to her family in the Philippines for almost thirty years show, a ton of money, but her sister's unemployed back home. I sent two dollar sometimes if I have money I sent one hundred dollars. Yeah, sometimes she called me all they have extra money, yet can just sent me some and then send it right away. Other members of her family who live in the US and Japan. Also help their relatives in the Philippines, Monday, Houston her money through an old standby Western Union, then somebody told her about an app called zoom that she finds cheaper and more convenient. Let's zoom with an axe now owned by pay pal. So I'm gonna go in. So I have to put my password in hair. Itami to sell countries. I'm going to sell like built in stone. She types in the amount. She wants to send fifty dollars this time the app converse. Those dollars into Filipino pesos as she types, it's two thousand twelve hundred S's zoom will send the money in tack on a fee, five bucks. This time startups promising to disrupt the remittance market, or popping up all over the place. Greece Ray manages, the US side of operations for a company called American cash exchange. It has offices here and in Mexico. It's been in the riddance market for seventeen years every week. There's probably one or two you Ewald wallet companies trying to enter the Mexican market, that also have participation in the US that somehow want to make that transfer of funds easier Mexican national sent more than thirty three billion dollars homeless year. And ninety four percent of those dollars were from the US a London company called world remit just raised a hundred and seventy five million dollars in venture capital. It's promising fast transfers and fee transparency. Jason Lou follows financial technology piper Jaffray. He says, even though the remittance market is growing increasingly crowded. And the competition is forcing fees, down the older lower tack and more expensive money Graham in Western Union still have an advantage. It works and people rely on it, and it's worked for them. So they don't necessarily see the need to change to digital solution. Maria Alvarado certainly, doesn't I met her outside a Western Union in downtown Los Angeles. She does send money to her family back home in Mexico, but you won't find her doing it on an ipad. Pudding. Never the same money over the internet because I don't know how to use a computer. She says Western Union just feel safer. She trusts it Facebook wants people like Alvarado to trust it in the ruins market. It's got one big care to offer. It says people will be able to use its plan crypto currency payments system for next to nothing back in northeast Los Angeles. I ask a Monday if she'd be swayed by a lower fee. Well, I don't know if it's free ah but, but for the time being she says she's fine with paying the four ninety nine to get the money to her sister, just as long as it gets there in Los Angeles on an Euler from architects. Coming up guys. You know, but we have what's called the sociable shop inches, eight what it used to be. Is it first though, let's do the numbers. Down finish. The session down a tenth percent, thirty four points, twenty six thousand seven nine s and p five hundred also down at tenth that is three point close, twenty nine fifty the NASDAQ down two tenths percent nineteen points eight thousand and thirty one but as I said for the week nut, so bad Dow added two point four percent, the S and P five hundred up two point two percent. Nasdaq gained three percent. Rub sailing for Carnival Cruise lines this week, the company cut its profit forecast for the year finished the day, down four and four tenths percent. That's on top of the seven point six percent loss yesterday out in that in the wake of that couple of its competitors took kids as well. No, which cruise lines down to seven tenths percent, row Caribbean down three tenths percent bonds down as well. That's the price.

This is marketplace. I'm KAI Ryssdal. Turns out there may be a whole bunch not to like about the light buttons of the social media world, mental health professionals and child advocates say the drive that a lot of kids have for validation popularity on Instagram and the rest of them can lead to exile and depression, low self esteem, as well instrument itself, which public service announcement here is owned by Facebook gave a nod to that not too long ago when it said it was going to experiment with hiding those light counts on some posts marketplace Mitchell Hartman dug a little bit deeper on the like problem. The like button is an integral feature of Instagram allowing a user to give a click of approval to a picture or video that someone has posted counting likes can turn into a popularity contest. And for kids, that can be a problem says Dmitry Kristaq s editor in chief of JAMA, pediatrics children, compare themselves to others via social media, and that can lead to feelings. Of inadequacy social isolation and depression and anxiety. Christoph is says more research is needed to prove these connections and test of sorts is now being conducted by Instagram itself for about eight weeks. Some Instagram IRS in Canada have only been seen the number of likes on their own posts. An Instagram spokesperson said the company's CEO is bullish on the results so far, but offered. No other details Pamela Hearst Dellape's tra- of the group. Children and screens called on Instagram today to ditch like counts altogether where United States users, and not just as an experiment amassing likes allows Instagram influencers to attract advertisers. But CF RA analyst Jon Freeman says he wouldn't be surprised if Instagram does deemphasize likes going forward because people are gaming the system from the advertisers expected Gernot interested in the number of like they want. Rich. Data, not just likes strong dislikes. And those this came from Pennsylvania Freeman says moving away from likes could also be away for Instagram and its owner Facebook to appease critics who are concerned about how social media affects young people. I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace. Aren't too many American companies more conic than Sears. There also aren't too many American companies more troubled than Sears tumbling sales. The past decade store closings bankruptcy last fall. A messy restructuring fight troubled now, though, Sears is working on a new concept selling. It's old school goods using some brand new tactics from the marketplace hub at Casey, you are in Kansas City, Peggy low is on now. The facelift is obvious. Minnie's step into a Sears home in live store. There's big video screens behind her. Welcome desk to people in blue polo shirts, man and a woman greet me and tell me that the store manager is helping a member. Your members like hospital while more members of our family, but, you know, Pasco this new concept store opened Morial day over them park, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City. It's one of just three so far. The others are in Lafayette, Louisiana and Anchorage. Alaska store manager, Richard herring says the store is much smaller than the traditional Sears outlets gigantic stores, averaging about one hundred and fifty thousand square feet and often serving as mall outlets. This is like the fifteen thousand square foot so smaller footprint but it's more of intimate herring shows me around the store has a large space for mattresses, dishwashers air conditioners, refrigerators and stoves it took a page from Kia by placing the appliances in a simulated decorated kitchen fitting them in around couples. Visual, this is what is going to look like inside your home and spaces like real issue for a lot of people. So we have the measure just to make sure it's going to fit. Company's new home in live stores. Offer a tactile experience that online shopping cannot. But what about all the stuff that people expect to see in a Sears store? Hearing says that has come up with customers to go. You don't have any tools. Go have any close guide. You have a kayak. No. But we have what's called the search bar this bar. This is a computer near the front of the store where people can order, things store doesn't carry which will then be delivered to the store for free customers must then pick up those purchases. There's also a small selection of other brands Sears says the store is trying to appeal to baby boomers who are familiar with Sears brands like Kenmore appliances. And since boomers are downsizing Sears is also hoping to attract what it calls young forming families who are up sizing into homes. I met Forty-one-year-old mad Campbell at Kansas City coffeehouse. He owns a home here. He says he buys appliances at the big bucks stores like Home Depot or best buy and he hasn't been to a Sears in use. My dad Ed Wood was always serves tools. But that's been. More than a decade ago. The chain had about nine hundred full line stores that offered appliances, but also apparel, some motive products and home and garden equipment. Now, there are more than two hundred of those stores left around the country. So will this new concept work for the struggling company, a tool cool Carney, and assistant professor of marketing at the university of Missouri? Kansas City says it feels like a last ditch effort to salvage the brand, you would say that, you know, maybe you know, see us light in the stent put us into CS used to being defies. That's when we do look at it series executives say, they're committed to this concept for the long haul, and they're getting ready to open.

If you live in or visit high risk areas. You'll you need something stronger. That is bugger off bomb dot com. Don't forget to type in sexy <music>. I'm dreaming hunky singer here. Happy happy hour just an oddly as year shoe. All your beautician snus all my dad. You have a gorgeous voice. I just watched your video this morning. Thank you thank you that was it was cool a little twist of fate it was supposed to be the pop version of the music video and we i was just playing around on the piano. Another session and to this orchestra were interesting is because chris has worked in country radio and in some. I'm right up some reading about you know that your country and i was like that doesn't sound country and christmas lake. We'll nothing dozen country now at all right because you sort of the pop version and but it all you saw gorgeous voice to any matter what i okay i read about you because representative sean maloney you <hes> you said thank you representative maloney for helping tackle this issue head-on he tweeted the survivor of conversion therapy justin nutley still bears the scars naming her album meet the singer. Who's using his music to help. Stop the harm being done to l._g._b._t._q. People what great first of all what great timing we just talked about today. The latest from the trump administration is them trying to all right passed legislation that lets businesses discriminate l._g._b._t._q. Among others based on religious government contractors to so it's like right like taxpayer money. This isn't as private business either as like this is like a bad dangerous precedent well right but i i mean first of all. What a fascinating story. You're you're like boy. Erased meets like the book of mormon. I remember when that condition was posted in new york and i'm like oh. This is gonna yeah about addition which book of mormon you love it. I absolutely loved it. My in my family was like i heard a bunch of lies like actually it's it is pretty accurate. Yeah i it it. It's great and i feel like if you can't laugh at yourself and your own culture you leave it to someone else to write less kindly and the church seems to have of embraced it a little bit really had to like a warm message at the end of it believing young uh yeah absolutely fake smile. We really love it exactly yeah. It's great really put out an ad in the in the playbill that said you've seen the show now write the book stephanie together and saw that playbill yeah yeah. Oh i forgot about our date. Yes that was our one date. We went to go see book of mormon. Yeah okay so wait a minute. I e because i have to say boy. Erased was was really powerful unom reading this first story about you. Just saw preview screening of the new film boy erased he was so affected by its portrayal of a controversial gay conversion therapy he drove around salt lake city and silence silence for two hours with painful memories hugging out tugging at him <hes> that yeah that was tough to watch and so powerful but for you i can only imagine it okay. Tell us your whole okay girl mormon in utah. You underwent gay conversion therapy between two thousand and two in two thousand four. You realize you were gay shortly. After your return from l. d. s. mission seeking help from a religious leader. He was recommended a therapist who says promised to him help with changing his sexual and the the crazy thing. There's like a the more people have been through this process there like well. I didn't really go through conversion therapy. It was more this retreat or this camp or like <hes> a specialist in helping me develop the the feelings i should have as a father and a husband and i'm like that's the same thing it's just they're calling it by something else now because like no one wants to put a sign on their door saying i'm a conversion therapist right you know it's a percentage of those people to end up being gay themselves so i would say probably ninety be working on their own issues perhaps and it just blows my mind like that <hes> like when when they tell people about the stuff stuff that i'm doing well. Is that even a thing people still doing. It and it's like yeah. That's the problem that it's gone so off the radar that it still happening and you just don't see it like what what is conversion. What do they do to you wait. I'm getting to the heart. Which is something you want them to do to you. I'm just curious. No that's a great question. I wondered the difference in this article. It says one of the models that therapy messes as your parents are responsible for you being homosexual actual they have you developed this rage against them and beat these images of them with baseball bats. That's your famous. Now my ex-husband today okay you. You said you didn't <hes> your your experience was not as extreme but you did feel depressed and suicidal after your experience. They told me that i had been sexually molested. As a child repeatedly. I didn't remember around that had to have been what caused me to learn these behaviors and that you know my anxiety would trigger this so i was put on. This cocktail of medication like one of them was for war vets basically for people's d. God says on that. I did that for two years and finally realized like this is bullshit. Can i say that in in fact i was unhappy i would point minded but yeah so it wasn't until my my mom caught word of what was going on because i didn't come out to my family that i was gay. I came out to them that i had been sexually molested and so they went on this pseudo witch hunt to try to figure out who in my neighborhood could have done this and thank god they didn't find reined who they thought that it because then what would have happened to their life who who you were sexually molest noel told you i just it was so awful. I just didn't remember number. It was this repressed memory syndrome something no wait a minute but so obviously some of these programs differ 'cause when chris has like what did yours entail so i this part crap me cracking up you group therapy setting. We're healthy. Male touch was encouraged just confused him even more he said many of the participants messed around with each other after sessions yeah yeah oh yeah it was like ching. The other group is supposed to cure you like yes. The idea is that you didn't have enough affection from your father or enough male bonding experiences so like these guys would like hold each other and it's like healthy touch sessions and you know if you if you gained like a crush on a guy you would obviously want them to your touch burner and like yeah speed dating. I ought not only might not cure absolutely does and gentlemen not care but now i've had an erection action from within four hours doctor who's the doctor. We are calling so much bullshit and this podcast in this happy hour. There's a lot of people who need to tell bugger off. Anyone involving repaired if they already very off yes but i wonder if for bomb work i don't think so that's the way my bugger obama's my new best friend because i had a nasty bite bright and you know me i don't go to doctors because as whatever and it was itchy for like three weeks screech screech screech creek not a good way and we had to hear you complain about for three weeks i thought venom was on its way to my heart. I barely survived and then ding dong. Nick nick of time. Bugger off bomb arrived at my door no more buds. I love it because i never used bug spray because i hate smelling like chemicals. Deep okay bugger off bomb. Deep-freeze smells smells good made from non g._m._o. Soybean oil beeswax rosemary thyme geraniums cedar wood basil and eucalyptus essential oils. Ooh i'm gonna only attract the right kind out of things. Not bugs smell like you could eat me with the melon baler so you could come from a hike without any bugs but maybe something else cow yeah yeah handy to ten so i couldn't take it for a weekend trip somewhere if i wanted to this dirty just for my listeners bugger off bomb is is are offering fifteen percents off when you use the code sexy go to bugger off bomb dot com type in the promo code sexy at checkout. That's right get fifteen percent off by going to bugger off bomb. Dot com use use that code sexy at checkout homemade in small batches right here in the pacific northwest. Ooh i can smell it now not for uses a deterrent against zeke or lime disease. If you live in or visit high risk areas. You'll need something stronger. That's bugger off bomb dot com type in the code sexy so there's different types of it so they they kind of spread out among long this like myriad of possibilities as to why you're gay like either. Your parents weren't there for you. <hes> or your molested as a child or you didn't have enough male bonding experience and so there's there's always always this explanation <hes> environmentally and psychologically as to why you have this condition and they treat it like it's an illness of some kind and it's just frankly not so there's no way they can pull anything that would that would actually explain away what they were trying to to change because there's just no explanation nation makes it makes you realize how incredibly ridiculous and dangerous it is. It sounds so cookie cutter. It's like you were molested. Knowing wasn't no yes you. Were you know you hate your parents and all i don't yes you right and this this this this this religious bias that kind of was obviously underscoring at all is i mean it's supposed to bring your family together but like tore mine apart heart like my dad felt awful for not catching this this this imaginary person doing this to me and then actually broke the cycle is that he called my mom. Mom was kind of like whoa. How could you let this happen and she's like what what what what's going on because they didn't tell her and she called jeez. I don't know what the hell is going on but like you you you cannot blame the repressed memory of something that never happened on what's going on in your life. I wish you would just tell me what's going on and that swin you know the cloud started clearing a little little bit and i was like well. Maybe i need to try something else because i've been doing this for two years and there's guys at this therapy so it's going to group therapy and then a one on one therapist through elliot's family services and and you know it was a combination of talk therapy psychotherapy and then group support therapy that had like conferences and retreats and things and i just just like this isn't working in. I don't want to do this for another ten or fifteen years like some of these guys still in that same boat and just think oh well. If i die then gotta take it from me then. You know don't do that now and here's the party acquire. I don't know if they warn you but this is running a crime but <hes> once you decided the therapy was working. Quit got a boyfriend. Your boyfriend suddenly died of a heart attack. Oh my god the mormon <hes> you're built mormon bishop told him you wouldn't he wouldn't have to go through this grief if he hadn't left therapy in pursuit relationship relationship with a man oh that must have made that pain worse that <hes> brent was taken away because i wasn't supposed to be homosexual and so i that that was kind of this moment of realization of you know you've been able to play these fear tactics on me before but you know what this is bullshit like you. You didn't know him. You don't know him. You didn't know what existed between us and yes. We were both in this space of. I don't know what we are but we cared about each other. It was my first experience with a guy at all like outside of this therapy and now you're telling me he's an expendable human because he wasn't mormon like this author so much bullshit in your story that oh i can't call bullshit enough time podcast but there is too much bullshit into into interesting interesting those parts of your life to to a person that's not even a licensed therapist first of all or even if they are licensed therapist they shouldn't be because it's supposed to be any mental health or mental health if <hes> person like license as opposed to abide by a code of unbiased and evidence based treatment and this is absolutely no evidence to support that it that it fixes treats anything anything because it's not a mental illness. I had a pre cry to get ready for those four play. I made up bullshit podcast but your testimony for equality utah. I mean the way you describe. You said the journey to begin to love and accept myself was not an easy one. Once i took a chance open my heart i met and fell fell in love with someone that would change my life forever. Meeting brent was one of the best things that ever happened to me one day after work. I received an email from brent's brother. Let me know that brennan suffered a very sudden unexpected heart attack and passed asked away and and you talk about how you couldn't even go to the funeral because you neither you were outstripped yup yeah <hes> yeah and they had the funeral oklahoma and and <hes> his brother just said you know. We're just collecting some emails from friends. We thought maybe you'd wanna write something and i it was really rough and it was through that process that my my boss at this credit union was reading my emails and <hes> found that i was gay and asked me point blank are you homosexual and i'm like well way to go clinical but sure and it doesn't have anything to do with my job and she's like walled yet. Yeah it does we wouldn't hire you had we known and so i- soon set found myself out of a job in utah didn't have any protections at that time <hes> which is why i spoke at that hearing <hes> <hes> finally did pass a law but i'm finding out more and more as i spend more time in utah. There's all these little back deals and <hes> amendments is that happened after some of these bills and apparently after this past for discrimination in job and housing for lt protections <hes>. The governor signed a bill. Oh that underminded it <hes> and there hasn't been a case detested but basically if the business or property has a contract major contract with a religious organization they can claim religious exemption from the law yeah and then i was pushing for right sane. I the by the way there was another little a scoop of bigotry. In your original story she mentioned there was a woman more qualified than me who had interviewed for my position but they didn't offer her the the job because they had seen one of those equal stickers on our car and assume she was a lesbian. She says she wasn't judging my lifestyle but preferred not to have people quote like me working there. I mean this is where i thought like wow maybe we do live in a little bit of a bubble gary now because i like so i mean and the the i mean that called lake lambda legal and just like we just suggest that you move to do that. My feeling is like this kind of. I don't know hashtag stonewall three sixty five like the whole purpose of that was to stop being treated like second-class citizens and that's still happening <hes> even in salt lake city where this little liberal hub utah. It's still happening. <hes> such a powerful your testimony when you say when in the course of those couple of weeks my job the person i love my faith in my community. <hes> there was an extremely low part strongly consider taking my own life <hes> then you sam standing her alive because of three things firstly unconditional support of a wonderful mother who if you refuse to allow me to continue to believe i wasn't worth loving the rest of the members of my family soon and followed suit with that makes all the difference in the world and you know what if i had come out <hes> honestly to her <hes>. I don't think i may have had to gone through everything that i had if i would have just been trusting enough and that's one of the things she told me she's like well now i now. I don't get to meet someone. That was so important to you so please don't let that happen again. <hes> it really changed everything she had actually attempted suicide and she followed the police and to make sure i was okay. I didn't know that so when i met you know if you're going to harm yourself then the police have obligation to make sure you're okay. <hes> when i arrived at the place is that we were supposed to meet. I saw this police tape and some flares and i got out of my car a police officer she said are you justin. I said yes he put me in the back of a car and locked and walked to a and i was like what the hell is going on and i look over and it was my mom's car that was underneath this truck and <hes> started ringo or something and they were pulling out of the window because she had followed the police to make sure okay and ran a red light and so i spent hours in the waiting room of the e._r. Hospital she comes out with with this crutches and things around her neck and she just said you know. This is what it takes to let. You know that your loved exactly the way you are. They'll do this again and that's that's really <hes> the pivotal point when it changed. I know there's kids out there. That aren't as lucky as me to have a mother that would just love unconditionally very pragmatically off love peace and that's an important message when i mean i've said this before that i took years to come out to my family my mom you know i'm crying like crazy. My mom just started crying. She's like oh honey. You told me yeah i mean and i thought wow i lost like twenty years of close host family. I was just i was so afraid. They were gonna judge judging them. I'm like oh the republican their catholic <hes> really you know and i had you know i was not. I was a lipstick. I guess and i had just an ambitious but they didn't. They really didn't know. They just thought i didn't care about boyfriends. I was one of the career and my mom said i thought you just had commitment issues and then she said something later down the line not in the same moment but she said you know you you. You did throw up a lot on my tits. When i was trying to breastfeed you i said mom i you just said tits and that's just just full. Stop right there secondly that you're all in the family potty mouths poppy potty mouth. She's she's italian the passion from her side but like it was we've we've gotten this amazing relationship now out of it that i wouldn't have ever ever had kept this yeah. I just love it. I d mahmut says tits love iraq. I wants to my girlfriend's mom. She had a nice rack. I post some of our conversations that i have with her. <hes> <hes> via text. I post them on instagram times. He texted back once. She's like you just told <hes> no. She said i just i just saw that. You performed at pride and salt lake. That's great but i saw a picture and you know it's a shame that my gay son has better tits than i do and so she i re posted that on instagram remember really popular book shit. My dad says you gotta do and mom says uh-huh okay son yup i should i posted a few conversations and people actually said this needs to either. Be a sitcom or an ongoing thread that you have because this is. What's what's my friend member. We had ended my longtime friend. <hes> crazy jewish mom same thing publishes just the tackle her mother texture like forty times times a day and they're hilarious. She's like one of them. Was this is random. Are you still goldstar. Gay and i'm like you know too much. How do you know that word right and i'm like how did how like you know too much. Why do you know this and why are you even asking yes. Of course i am. She's on just asking you need to know these things. Because you said tits too much right right right right and your mom would know if you're a platinum gay. I threw up on your what else told her. I want my long form birth certificate because i don't believe i came out of your vagina regina. My said when i explained goldstar gay was you know i haven't touched a giant and she's like oh. You've touched mine. I'm like no you're not gonna count that they came in or a like born early because they can't wait to get out of fucking china and they're never going back and that's why we're screaming his akra finally just catching our breath up darkness xactly that was that was you know okay. That's the last one i ever wanted. I gotta platinum star husband. Oh my god that's right dan. What is platinum mean se- section. He has touched it. How how was like hold up in there. I'm not coming out and she doesn't want it to either. Believe me like i said my mom said <hes> and besides you're the l. Noon gave me stretch marks out of the three mike. Thanks thank you really big one yeah yeah i was and i didn't have any. I didn't have any bone structure. I think for or at least a year because every picture they have of me. I'm kind of this ball like cream cheese kind of ripping my brother's bowling. Is that my head or my feet as it's just like a giant mouse with to offer is and just not ever wipe the after birth off no actually my mom that i was the wrong kid i while because i didn't look anything like my brothers and i just yeah it was that's another story but yeah there's pictures of him as a guy be in the hospital. My brothers both have pictures with my mom because they were doorbell and just this giant amoeba. I've never forgotten some jokes from a thousand years ago. He's talking about the birth of his son and it's the most beautiful moment of my life and i'm there waiting and watching and here comes in. It's a monkey and cheese sauce cheese. Apparently the so that new survivors is the debut single right from <hes> scars. Which is the album again you it. Can we hear a little pop version right. Let's i just want to <hes> does your voice is gorgeous thank you let's hear <music> dedicated to people who've gone through repetitive searching through start for gator <music> done tearing me apart side massan on this is from las sued. I plan title of the next one afford florida's so i am reading the whole obviously mormon home but when you first started. Did you say when you but you believe your same gender. Attraction was an addiction disorder a learned behavior so you talked about medication. What what is there something they consider anti-gay pills they can they thought because of the childhood trauma i suffered that allegedly i mean they had me geez over the over the course of weeks and weeks starting to remember these pieces of this memory like oh i remember burger the the wallpaper color or the or the carpet the floor yeah you know something on the wall and it was just like you know think back to a time in your childhood of a house that made you uncomfortable all the walk past and you know i thought oh my god. This is once again calling bull. They're creating traumas in your head and in fact i went to a psychiatrist because i'm i'm still on one of the medications because i can't come off because it was it was a big dose in like my brain needs. It and there has to see this. I hate to say where i kinda start to understand a little bit. The what marian williams is no. This is just a personal thing for me and i get it that it saves. Some people's lives and i don't want to but i have a friend that killed herself. When she went off the paxil axel. Remember there was a lawsuit a lot of friends and family of people that and you describe it as it was to help suppress your feelings and it just seems like that part. I get when people say that well first of all. I'm not a fan of the pharmaceutical industry the overprescribe police stuff that might be just situational sadness or like. You said you just like they were causing using your trauma and your doctor. I'm seeing now. He's just like you know. I would actually be prescribing this to you from the trauma. They created yeah yeah. That's that's what it sounds like to mess with cam brain chemistry like that and i do get the when it's situational sadness that they are over prescribing and then like you say you can't get off because then it's parlour yup yeah i've i've. I've tried the different methods and stuff so they're looking for alternative but for now it's just like well just stir until we figure out something else but i mean it was basically all these these drugs were to help suppress not the feeling but it was almost just make me numb emotionally which was then just making me completely numb to life right sure it worked but it didn't take away man attraction and took away the joys as well as though the pain oh totally like in an imagined i mean how much this could be avoided by just our blame religion for everything but just being able to be grow up as normal healthy kid right. You know there's none of of this. There's none of this. <hes> i mean it's like i. We were all bullied right. I mean oh trump's what's hard enough even being gay that it and like i i've talked to a couple of groups of social workers at the university of utah in some in some groups and some of them <hes> were interns at the the elliott family services and they've definitely changed their their m._o. I'm they're telling some kids lay. Hey maybe you just need to take a break from the church for a while and figure out who you are which is pretty eighty four word <hes> thinking <hes> the problem is though is that's kind of <hes> it differs between therapists the therapists offices salako ah the message is inconsistent so other therapists say no. This is something that maybe we can fix it. Also this idea that now they're kind of encouraging asexuality as a way to you. Just keep you in the training. Oh well you know you're just just not attracted to anything right you know like or you're confused that means you're not attracted to anything so now you can still stay on religion religion now then mormonism in england. I you know when i left mormonism. It actually wasn't due to being gay. I mean i was trying to stay. I mean that was the whole point right. That's the therapy it was actually when i had found out some of the problematic stuff in their history that was deliberately hidden badly yeah and i was i felt a little duped duped because they served a mormon mission for them and i felt like why didn't you give me the whole story before i went and sold it. That's not fair you know d. Do you believe do you believe in god still deny believe yourself. Agnostic agnostic louis is more of like a humanist where i feel like honest to god. I've we have the power in us to change change things. We have the power in us to to destroy things to create beauty and i think that god is in us like we we are the ones that are responsible for changing things and make things better and instead of praying someone in the sky to take care of someone who's hurting. It's we're supposed to do that and that's kind of why. I'm doing what i'm doing because that's what i believe you you are. I love this you. You're off when you were at u. Performed the winter olympics too yeah. I did a a regional stint of joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat the show must be mormon closeted well now. I was in love with donny. Yes exactly yup and you have nice teeth. That's dentistry might be you too at this point so i did that and that kind of sprung me into some of the other musical theater realms of things and then i got asked by the governor to be the two thousand isn't to olympic opening ceremony reception and i i thought it was spam. I because i'm like what the hell this is not possible but it was it was really cool and it was at that point that i kind of after the olympics were over. I started doing some gigs a coupla nashville and new york and that's when i decided to move to new york 'cause nobody really makes it in utah and it's a place where people are from the osmond's. They had their studio true. One olympic related question yeah curling what the fuck yes okay exactly. Although maybe it's because i'm getting old but i find it very relaxing watching to see if it was summer olympics. I would've said pommel horse. What the fuck yes yes yes. I think we need to bring back something like the old old school stuff like hey. Let's take. Let's do this lake gladiator stuff going on because if you're still doing curling some of this stuff. Do you like that eater movies. Do actually using must be part of seemed gender attraction disorder so you're single stanford. Those two thousand ten was a marriage it. When the whole marriage equality you eight that's kind of when i felt like what what i had to say was <hes> connecting to people. I'd add written out of frustration when property went down and i just felt like you know what this is. This is bullshit and this is. This wasn't supposed to happen enough people. If enough people have gotten off their asses voted. We wouldn't be an accusation and that's kind of what member j obama won't wait. What about the us this game say more. Bullshit has been called this happy hour. I am so happy because he's warm. He's not gonna swear he's not gonna drink. He is made up in tips and bullshit ladies and gentlemen. Let's listen to a little of scars. Is that yeah <hes> uh-huh <music> the next month actually originally a rock and roll songs like a term br used say he's waiting four. You watched in dismay. We saw his way never thought was is in <music>. Uh mine yeah it. Actually i'll change speaking suicide panel at the senate's festival last year and i was speaking on conversion therapy and and some of the other panelists <hes> one was transmitted and we talked afterward and she i'd sung survivors as part of the gig and she turned her arm over and on the inside of reform was the word survivors survivors oh well and then she pointed out that under legs i was asking about the story on her tattoos and some of the tattoos on her legs were to cover the scars that were left by your parents whipping her with a belt level level for wearing a dress and that's actually the moment i went back to the studio and rewrote the song to be what it is now because before it was as big loud rock and roll song and i felt like that moment changed it completely and i felt like it needed more needed to pay more amish to people that have that have had those scars cut so deep that they're gonna be there forever and yeah and that we should actually celebrate those remember them instead of trying to hide them because that's what makes us who we are beautiful really yeah yeah you saving lives.

Where am I hot microwave if take pleasure very warm? Welcome to another episode of the Working Experience Podcast Mattie K.. And John on the last day of of Twenty nineteen. Yeah shed a tear. This is not just another podcast. This is closing out a year A stellar year. We add about Taylor. Two hundred twenty something podcast now. No to Lord. where I'd like to seventy two seventy? Oh my God why wait wait. Oh Yeah I think I'd say off into the stratus we're closing in on three hundred man while we're going to have to have a working experience various party on the three hundred thousand sewed let's see We are UNOM skews me. This is to eighty two. Oh my God wow time flies. It doesn't it when you're having fun doesn't it yeah how fun and make bank is what it's making Friggin Bank. I'm this that's not why we do it. Everyone though I mean we're we're we're definitely heading on the upward trajectory in terms of listeners downloads however in the money department how many downloads we have to we. What are we You know we got there in terms of ship should we should we Make it public. Yeah why not. I hear other where we're doing. Where over six figures in in total downloads in lessons? Oh total yeah all right. That's over two hundred eighty episodes. Yeah Yeah I'll you know. Do we have an average. Do we know how much are average would week getting like per week or per month. It varies on the the Quite how good the episode is but we average in the like below thousand listen per episode in a good episode. We'll get anywhere between two and five thousand. Yeah well and let me be frank. The quality quality of our episodes does vary. I will say indeed. It keeps everybody on their toes So I I I guess you know cruising into the new year and We we we also have opened mediums site with a short little all pieces anywhere between five and eight hundred words so really shouldn take up a too much of a chunkier day to give him a read and let me tell you something the bang for your buck out of that. Five to eight hundred words the amount of wisdom we've managed to pack into those five to eight hundred. Words is is a lot the trip dripping with wisdom. I don't think we have any articles that are five words. Though where did you come. We've come range five hundred. I think said five five five I could probably get down to five the working experience Haiku right back at right at the Eunice. That's one word right there. That's one were on one. Yeah yes it's one word But you know one of them is the The trap of expectations. Because you know we do this. I find this podcast enriching to do Sometimes it's a royal pain in the ass you know usually it's it's enriching But like you know. We went into this with the expectation that by January. First Two thousand twenty we're going to have so many downloads. I mean Oh this would this would have been done. Yeah we would have been out but you know the thing is like people do go into to things like that with these kind of unrealistic expectations. It's like where did you come up with that number or I'm GonNa have my first million by such and such an age or you know what we use that word all the time like an education expectations expectations and my thought on that. Is You can expect anything. You want anything you want. You can expect effect to make your first million by the time you're thirty or forty But there are many other factors that will come into play to defy your expectations so like New Year's resolutions. Tonight is the biggest night right tomorrow. Maybe not tomorrow but January stories. Second Everybody'll be at the gym right. Oh you Betcha you betcha everybody's going to be pumping iron yup run on the treadmills the ellipticals and then come January fourth. And that's and that's probably being generous ghost town well. People have these expectations expectations. Like they say they're going to lose twenty pounds. You know by the end of February and it's like okay. That may happen or may not you. You may enjoy your knee or something could happen or whatever you know. I mean it's then when they offer to people people are and you know it's forming a habit you know it's like it's much easier to stay the course you know view. been right in the couch for twenty years. It's a lot harder to jump off and jump on a treadmill for thirty minutes. You got to build that habit. Yeah and I think probably In statistics show this people like they go in with these absolutely unrealistic expectations. Like they're going to go to the gym four times a week for an hour. And you know that doesn't sound like much but when you've worked all day and you're tired and the weather's crappy crappy and whatever People start to fall off and it's like the and it's also sorry to cut you off but it's also it's a mindset. You know you. I mean as much as we joke about it. Here on the work experience you do have to have a positive Zedillo mindset to you. Know if if you're going to decide to go to the gym or you decide to start a business. Whatever it is you don't first of all you don't want to start that with with negative emotions? Don't WanNa like basically admit defeat before you even start and you don't want to launch launched that thought on a sea of expectations like you're saying like okay. I'm going to start a business and by June first I'm going to be rolling in millions right. I mean because if that doesn't happen then what I mean Oh then you just give up on life right. I mean that's the thing like if you don't lose twenty pounds by you know March. I said he lost ten pounds. Or if you don't like see yourself alf losing weight I mean you know. We live in a very instant gratification culture like I wanNA see results now. It's I it weight loss loss just to take weight loss. It doesn't work like I think. Wait comes off like a quarter of a pound a time. It's very knows a slow process. You can lose a lot of weight in the beginning depending on how overweight you are but again like people starve themselves. And they're gonNA fast sixteen hours a day and it's like okay. You Really GonNa the do that. Are you really going to keep that up. Well I think that that is the thing. That's the number one resolution solution right like you see people losing weight or getting in shape. You feel like the commercials everyone's talking about it And there are there are ways ways for you to drastically lose weight like you could do it like you could. I heard I think it was on the Joe. Rogan experience was Kevin Smith. Smith was talking about the potato diet episode. Yeah yeah he could Yeah you can eat as many potatoes as you want but but you can only eat potatoes. Right and you'll you'll shred wait. You'll just drop weight but go that. That's sounds easy enough Q.. Magin that there's nothing on it like you can't put anything on it. You just have to have a potato you can have bake you can mash can have it whatever way you want but just a potato. We'll number one. He had he was very overweight and he had a heart attack and he had to lose a lot of weight quickly and that that was a way to do it. That is not a sustainable diet. I mean you can't no it's useful fall yet. Yeah the the Diet is just quickly lose weight. Yeah I'm doing. My point is that there are ways to do it. That was extremely difficult right and that I mean hey if somebody is fifty pounds overweight. And they're like God damn it like I think you can kind of pick anything and part of the point was That you don't even want to eat it after a while like you don't want anymore potato race right just eating like assist subsistence level. Full of food right just to yeah right and you know you could pick tomatoes. I mean within reason. I don't think you could pick like pizza or something like that but He was at a critical point so if somebody's fifty pounds overweight and they're like Jesus I I WANNA lose twenty pounds just to like so. I can at least run or you know 'cause the the problem is when people start putting on more weight it becomes harder to exercise like you can't your needs can't take it absorbs probably the number one thing. Well I think the statistics on diets gruesome at like people will gain back the once they go on a diet eighty percent Santa people will gain back the same amount of weight that they lost more. And then we will. Then there's like another ten or fifteen percent that will will gain more because what happens. Is You know people like like you. said they'll go in hard you know they'll instead of just going and easy so they'll starve themselves and their their body assumes that Oh you know there's a plague or were starving Rabin ourselves and then when the diets over it you automatically eat back all those calories that you lost it. I mean it's evolution you know. It's it's in our genetics. That's why I say hard in the paint baby go and ardennes paint. Either you're going to go to the gym two hours. I every single day or forget the whole thing. Just forget it. We'll we'll many many K.. Soon as midnight rolls around January first twenty twenty he stops eating only water with a little bit of Lemon and Jim six hours day. Yup that that lasts for about two three days with the outset. And if he's if he's lucky he's in the Er right with a drip ninthly pulled shoulders and ice packs all over your body. And I'm just done I just you know well. My New Year's resolution is weight related but mine is to gain twenty pounds which I think is pretty Uh Listen I you know I go hard in the pain. I'm I'm Sutton expectations resolve. It's not easy to gain twenty pounds. You gotta eat your concentrate you you gotta order that extra pizza the right. Yeah that extra big Mac. Sometimes you're uncomfortably full and you gotta get back in a and you gotta push through that you gotta push through that pain. Aw Eat until the point that you're gonNA vomit and then you just gotTa Labor and you got to know that that comes with experience. Let's see gotTa Ebben flow it you got and also because when you think about it if you eat and then vomit you've lost all those gains. Yes see that's why The thanksgiving buffet was a real wind for me because I went with my family up to the Mount Washington in hotel. And they have this wonderful all you can eat buffet and driving home. I thought I was going to vomit like I thought I did not get an either. I'm not just saying for for this podcast. I thought I was going to throw up like I couldn't talk because I was concentrating on breathing. I was like Oh my God like. Why did I do this to myself? But I didn't and what I realized is that was such a resounding victory because I took it right to the edge because if I threw up it was a waste. The whole thing was away stripe stripe so absolutely. That's me taking it to the edge knowing your rights in bound man what is that movement human optimizations that what it is never heard of that. This is exactly push took hills in. Well the thing is they'll have to to back to back Commercials for Valentine that no Panitan that bike. Yes and then So I have I have friends who have Peleton. Yes see I. I don't it looks like something I would resoundly mock but I could see the value of it but my point is you'll see a Peleton an and you'll see an ad for a gem then you'll see an ad for golden corral which has is like a five ninety nine all you can eat buffet and then he spent an extra two or three dollars for a box that you cram more food into that you can I and I would say probably. I'm going to say sixty percent of the time that food doesn't even make it home. It's consumed in the car. Of course long car ride home. Yeah or or even fifteen minute car on that you dig into the box but we live in a very like how many food shows are on television. Television like we live. Food is sport. It's it's it's a disgrace in this country and in honestly as one of those signs of the fall of Babylon you know like food porn like an you know not to get Maudlin about it but there are many many cultures. They just eat to keep going. They don't all all of our. All of our problems are for with excess has to do with excess. Like you eat too much you drink too much smoke too much and psych. Yes all all of these vices but with food it's it's tricky. Because you need to eat like there are you know their food disorders this What are the ones where when you throw when someone throws up what is that called Bulemia Alenia Belania? What's the other one in a wreck sick So they have to WHO's ever affiliate afflicted with this has to relearn how to you know their relationship with food and eating well. That's also a lot of societal pressures to Lucca. Certain way to be than in all that whereas like other countries where people are barely getting enough to eat. I mean this honestly. He must just discussed them. It must absolutely discuss them. That's like you have so much food. You make yourself throw up and you just endless. And and then gyms to get rid of the fat from all that food. Let's just seem ridiculous. Like what what have we. What are we working towards here? You you know so yeah. Food is probably a big Probably the big ass food. Wait getting in shape. That's probably the biggest so uh-huh new year's resolution or something based around that but you know some are one guy They were on the news local news last night talking to people about New Year's resolution. And you know a lot of people said getting into better shape and one guy said you know. I'm just going to try to be nicer to people like little more patient nation. He's like that doesn't cost me anything. And he's like you know a good new year's resolution. Yeah and he said it's hard because he's like sometimes not that way and I have to get him to a better habit of that. That one person said do volunteer work. I was like yeah there. You go like a use some of that gym time to. Maybe you know go to one night a week week. The homeless shelter. Something like that. So you know something that will cost you anything you can sustain them and they better other people like. I think the idea idea was to have a new year's resolution that that benefited other people in some greater or smaller way. I mean one guy read about. He is pretty successful. Land investor property investor and. He had come from kind of a poor background. I think this was somewhere in Pennsylvania so he drove back to his is hometown with a a rig packed or had it driven with like twelve thousand dollars worth of Christmas gifts that he went around to these how project yet I bikes. He bought like a hundred bikes and all kinds of stuff and it was just like wow. That's you know that's really that's really something. Nice that someone dead that's very productive active and You know Well listen you know on the working experience here. We hope that twenty twenty get after it. It's it's it's even a bigger hustle than twenty nineteen Well Yeah of course we were reading this article that you sent me see. That talked about not working nights and weekends it was kind of at Boohoo. kind of a kind of a m almost against the grain of while you're working says my working experiences. Maybe work to three days a week. I mean come on. There was a great term that I read called slack partner. It was somebody was claiming. He only worked like ten or twenty hours a week and he did. I forget after it really little more into it but I liked that one. It's like Slack Trooper Noor. It's kind of an awkward phrase doesn't work that well but the It's like the Tim. Tim Ferriss four hour workweek. Yeah yeah mentality. Yeah he writes right. He does writing for medium. I guess he's been successful Awesome Malzahn. Oh yeah now. He's he's pretty successful But he I mean he works more than four hours but his point was you. Can you can create a a side hustle and spend a couple hours on that week and eventually that could be main source of income eventually could be yes us So this article here and I'll pull it up it. Was You know the idea is that you're supposed to be working nights and weekends either at your career or at your side Hustle And basically working all the time which blends into the idea of work. ISM that you're always supposed to be working Muslin hustling constantly now. Now the the Tagline for this article is. Let's see young ambitious. Don't devote nights and weekends to your employer do this instead so so I am neither young nor dishes And truly never were have never devoted nicer weekends at anything in other than self indulgence But you know it's funny. How like Elon? Musk famously said no one ever change changed the world on forty hours a week. First of all. There's no way that he knows that Well that's not true. And that's there's I mean famously. I think it was was Ben. Franklin that had his schedule you can you can google it but basically he would get up at a reasonable hour like nine or ten o'clock. He would have breakfast. He would read Either think or meditate meditate and then he would work for two hours and then he would take like a two three hour lunch a stroll in the park and then he'd work another two or three hours and then have dinner and then read at night and you get a lot done. I'm sure you're not cry. You got a lot done Ben Frank Goodwill Oh Benny when you're not constantly checking your phone and looking at your email and like that seems to be. What constitutes work and business easiness like you're always looking at social media? You're like how much worl I'm I'm an. I'm an attention whore a LICOR. Well if I don't get a certain amount of lakes aches you curl up on the couch and a ball. You're you're you're function you can't even function you're done yeah I know it's the narcissism And then this other Guy Ryan sell cliffs you ever heard of him now. CRYPTO currency entrepreneur. But that sounds like a frigging benefit to society For if you don't work nights and weekends in your twenties you're not GonNa have a successful career like I love these people who you just think that. Because they've made a lot of money they now can tell everyone else how to live their life and the the assumption is is that by taking that set advice. You're going to be happy and rich just like them. When in fact they could be miserable? Their life could be miserable they could be wealthy. Well the thing is or they could be wealthy and happy. Well that's what I wrote down like. How `bout is successful life? Like if you spend your twenties twenties working nights and weekends like how about going hiking or taking a trip to China or getting loaded with with your friends on Saturday night and blow off some steam like what. What about all you know I mean yeah but that's not that's not you know it's not print where the matt that's boring? You know what it is is like when it comes down to it. Is You define gene. What is successful for you for your life? Like what does happiness mean for you. And that's too big of a question for most as people to even comprehend. Nobody wants to hear that you know I read about you. Know the company away they do that. that Yup Yup I was just reading about this someplace else and their CEO Who apparently he is one of the worst people ever he will like scream at people in front of everyone calls somebody brain dead and this is making luggage? This is not curing cancer. You know what I mean. which kind of goes with I talked to Erin Griffin some time ago? She's one of our. I guess actually and she made the the point about work as Like what exactly are you doing. Creating the new door dash to go get food or something like that anyway anyway He would send these. He sends like round the clock emails. One of which told them to They were not going to get paid time off They were asked to cancel. Holiday travel plans and urged to take photographs graphs of themselves in bed with their laptops in order to keep pants pants. Keep pace with customer demand and shipping. snafus a yeah. This guy apparently is a nightmare. Like he just as an absolute nightmare Now they rent an sorry. Go ahead while I was just gonNA finish up with the the one of the founders of base Camp Jason Freed. I don't know if you know if you know that we we I interviewed and his partner right under eye hand was it Hanson. Guys Dave. He was on the podcast yet. Do Hanson Yep. Yeah and he says if your company requires you to work nights and weekends your company is broken. There is a managerial problem. Not your problem and I would say like yeah like if you. I've heard people complain about like their European counterparts. They can't get anybody at the office after five and whatnot and I think Ktar European counterparts must be looking at us like what is your problem like. Why can't you get your work done in a reasonable amount of time? So it's yeah well it's the always connected life. I mean I. I read an article about a guy who works at the. US Forestry and the key you know he insanely happy in. All he does is hill unit goes to work. He's got a clear a section or is GonNa you know look at the trees whatever he does and every day he's he goes in. He's got a task he does it. He works like five or six hours a day and then he he goes. He goes home to his small little cabin. And this guy's happy is a pig in shit. Yeah and you know some enemies making like started. He's making like you know. I don't know what the salary is. It didn't stay in the article but he's probably making thirty league grand ear the I'm sure he's not raking it in. But you know this goes back to what I was GONNA say about resolutions exercise like whatever your work as you have to enjoy a like if an expectations. It's like you know doing podcasts. Making a short film writing a novel like you cannot write a novel with with the expectation that it's going to get published. I mean that that is a lot of hard work. It's a lot of publishing shorter stuff on people's websites for no money. Things like that and there is no reasonable expectation that you're GONNA get published so you better enjoy what you're doing because you know as I've talked about my short film. Got Shut Out at twenty some odd festivals. But we're GONNA make another one this summer because I like it. I genuinely enjoy doing you and I I can't you can't go into anything like this podcast like we said we're we're we're GONNA have one hundred thousand downloads for every episode and you know we're going to be like Joe Rogue and well. I mean you know that may happen. It may not but I enjoy the intellectual repartee and all. That's go on a little bit on the deep ad. I know I'm not even sure repartee word I think we're we're barely comprehensible. Is that a word. I don't know I don't think so I I'd say I'd look it up but I'm not GonNa do that so comprehensible that's so we are leading but yeah I mean you'd better enjoy what you do. You know any LAN. Musk I mean I guess. He gets enjoyment in his own. Robotic pod person is an type of wave. I don't dislike but I think everybody is looking for you. Know the answer to solve everything and you. Can't you know everyone's looking for like Oh you know. Tell me what to do you like yes. You're right and you have the truth of it and the truth of live in the meaning of life is like you hold that answer you decide what is success. What is happiness? You don't put that if you put that answer in someone else's hands you will be like myself curled up on the couch on a daily basis ACIS but it's just amazing. How many people are on instagram? Twitter facebook these articles telling other people how to be success in happy. And it's like like that woman from Yahoo with the one hundred forty hour work week and you know you're not going going to be successful if you don't work weekends and nights I mean you know I read this book called the game or big games about the NFL NFL and a lot about the owners. Mark Leibovich route it really good buck lot of it kind of centers around the Patriots but These other owners as well and he said you know they they think that because they're successful in whatever they did and they own a football team that they know every time they really think they know everything about anything rocket science you know Reattaching the retina and I or they they just like so full of advice for everyone about everything and people do look to them. Because it's like wow you're a multi millionaire billionaire but you know it's like again. Listen Yeah it's I. I was investment banking. I worked nights weekends. Hundred Hour. WORKWEEKS was making a ton of money. It sucked I was not happy. I remember like getting being physically ill because I didn't want to go to work. Yeah Yeah in by any if you looked at me and looked at what you know the indeed the job and the status you I would be labeled a success like he's made in. I was miserable. But you know there's a lot of people who would just carry on with that he would. Oh yeah walk. GRANDMA GRANDMA bottle whisky just march along.

The Passing Shot meets... Sam Seddon, IBM's UK Sport & Entertainment Sponsorships Lead to discuss Wimbledon + how data is used to enhance the tennis fan and the tennis player experiences at The Championships

"Thank you ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the passing shot the tennis PODCAST RUN BY FANS FOR FANS with your host. Jolan Kim Today on the show we are joined by. Sam Seddon who is IBM's UK sports and entertainment sponsorship need? I'm responsible for all the partnerships including with Wimbledon and England rugby at Wimbledon Sam has the responsibility of managing of IBM services for the championships are the official. It provider for the LT say. This includes managing a team of one hundred people during the fortnight. He's responsibilities range from capturing data courtside to media services security systems as well as oud two platforms. Sam thanks coming on the show. How are you today? I'm well thank you well. Managing the wind is herring through the UK at the moment. Let's hope we don't have a when the tennis hits us in gene and thank you for coming on. This is all pulsing meet series trying to bring different individuals from across the world of tennis. The wild onto to learn more about what day? I'm just a bit of kind of background. I'm looking at what? Ibm bring to to Wimbledon. Really it can be split into kind of two things the player experience and the fan experience through the things that IBM provide a. Let's Talk Fan experience. I because we we are both tennis fans. This is a podcast very much focusing on the fans relationships tennis so could you just briefly talk through how. Ibm help to to kind of really bring people closer to the action when it comes around every year. Yeah it's it's a range of things really. I mean the the way that we work with Wimbledon as much year round. So where? We're always looking at what we can do to improve and what we can do to be better. There's a little sign when you come out. The the officers of the club says once once we finish we begin. It is liked every single year superman from technology point of view in the way the most fans will interact with Wimbledon From in a way that they control is through that digital properties. Say everything on the broadcast and BBC or ESPN or Starr. Whichever country and Wimbledon are increasingly getting involved in how that looks and feels when it comes across the television to you. I'm so they've sat there and broadcast company to help support and deliver that content providers. But unless you're able to come to rest up nineteen the place that you're going to experience Wimbledon most in a way that women don't want it to be presented on Women Dot Com in the official APPS. So we're we're constantly looking at what the fans want need an how do we create content as by engaging that works in a way they can exist within digital properties in in social media platforms that they operate within an? How do we create an environment where we draw people from one environment to another down data in voice the school why people winning and and how do we present really exciting engaging ways? I'm how do we help news? And how do we experiences the very much tailored and personalized to you is the found? So you get what you want when you want to. I think thirty interesting point because I think with fans I think you have two different sets the fans who are actually going to the event and then you've got the fancy going to them obviously still want to to be engaged in all of those different audiences that comes different sets of needs in different ways to interact with women in. It's almost kind of feel that you have to cater for two different two different sorts of fans. Would you could say it's fourteen fourteen. Say Wimbledon have done some segmentation of their audience. Say You know. What kind of fan are you? And they've done a three research and analysis and not broken down by country but it breaks down into broadly speaking fans and they will go their own. Needs them once in a while. They are there general sports fan all they she the the real tennis fanatics all they a social fan by which means they're they're interested because of the social. Open this up. Do you think so. There's all these different segments and you've got that fan base. Both onsite and offsite say Redo look at that kind of Leffler detail. In terms of how do we deliver an experience when she's going to be compelling to those different user groups of making sure that all of them being saved in a way that they is appropriate for them wherever they now? Yeah I think I guess having lots of different fans it's that's a layer of complexity because as you said there's lots of different needs you know catering to kind of tennis fanatic compared to a casual fan a is quite tricky and I guess that's one of the challenges of Wimbledon. Is You know it is a national event series one tennis event the fans in the UK are going to watch. It's probably going to be Wimbledon. And as a result of that you can get people with absolutely kind of zero knowledge wanting to get involved in tennis in the time up to people. I guess be who you have to put in for a million times four love you love to cheer in it's It feels like that's kind of one of the one of the challenges is that you know you've got that kind of level of go. Some people with zero knowledge of tennis in some with lots of knowledge. Are there any kind of challenges as well? The you kind of have come across when you think about women and about what. Ibm has today. It's a real scale challenged. That would do that. We have that we women out with and speed and scale so Wimbledon's if you're into new you probably familiar with that in pursuit of greatness content themes and they've had a number of series as I shared the story behind the MCI greatness theme is. It's an aspiration that can never be achieve. Women always striving to be the very best they can be and that is because of the nature of the event is a high quality event. They striving to be the best. Tennis told ME ONE OF THE BEST. Sporting events in the world and that comes with a requirement for quality and doubt as to absolutely everything if then layer in on top of that From look what's going on in early June twelve going on in July at this huge scale requirement in terms of volume of content in terms of the infrastructure. That says behind all of that. Making choices seamless and works and that level of scale is significant. Saying we'll scale their web environment about fifty five thousand percent out tournament time to implement time that's going to be done incredibly efficiently and then you've got how do we keep a new stories coming quickly and rapidly so we we do. We've done some sessions with in the past where we coming with a challenge which is okay. So Wimbledon Art journalist Sander Jan this on site creating content with us social media or whatever. And it's the challenge is how how can that unto journalists break news faster than global media organization because this you'll know there's a first mover advantage in terms of getting your content. I so how do we help? Wimbledon identify that the news might be breaking before it breaks and we can do that by looking at the data. And how can we help them? Create content really quickly but still maintain the quality in terms of watching highlights and getting access to that content. You know immediately after the match. So if you've not managed see the match you can see the highlight so you have seen the match us. Want to see the best shots getting that continuity quickly is also very important so we use often plow technology artificial intelligence they scientists etc to make all that happen. And Are you able to just over a bit more into into the types of technology that you use because I understand you've got a team of one hundred eighty people approximately that you take on board at the championships that I know I've I've seen a recall. The the data collectors sitting there at the first of all kind of getting the stats in. But how is used to? She translate that to what we'll see on our APPS FROM. We live schools in the match stats. Yes want somebody clicks the button on the side of a call as just a regular right package has been designed with some software that allows really rapid capture and the people that are capturing. The data is very good tennis player. So we know that we're getting quality data. We train them very very well to make sure that is the case. Then it becomes a big data distribution and analysis operations say that data and its role form can be distributed immediately to school board but then we also wanted to add to that data and enrich. It wants it telling us and what does the system the Women Information System that contains all of the data that we've got an during the time that we've been capturing it had all the schools and results came back to eighteen seventy seven. Say when you're sitting on sitting in commentator's booth you'll have a with an information system in front of you and the screen match statistics up. They instantaneously every time somebody touches a button and enter some data say the percentages of first second Serbs how many shots eccentric such as we start to enrich the data with more insight and then we can feed that into the APPS. Say all the APPS update within seconds not doesn't matter where you are around the world as a big cloud infrastructure to make that happen so we go seven data centers around the world are helping to drive for public centers puppy cloud environments these subserving the front end web stuff and then we go three private ones assault backup will manage the environment and then there's a big data science operation going on we've systems on top of the data warehouse constantly searching four and when recco records might be broken. Say when Raja last year went to the top of the all time. Ac leaderboard we can sort of predict to an extent when that might happen so we know that he's close we gotta serve. We know how many might say he normally serves no match. So we can pre one Wimbledon and then notified Messina's hit so that they pre created content. And then all of that. Data series is a source of information when it comes to presenting things into slum tracker which is a tool that you can use as a fan in Wimbledon Dot com and in the APPs which is a local. I being in the shoes of a tennis coach. Say basic the school but you can dig down into all of those lovely stats that tennis fans like and then. Also we've sort of run. Some smart official intelligence machine learning over the top of that understand. What are the tactics that these two individual players need to execute against in order to increase their chances of winning and you can see how each players performing gates though she can see the tactics of the match this momentum flow in there as well which is based on analyzing data and then finally we can use the same data along with other data to create the video highlights? So we can say this is an exciting point because of where it is in the match You know on my serving Trying to save a break and UNOM loved thirty down on a Monday at ten around fifteen thirteen and come through win is it a set point might be thirty breakpoints. No match all created equal. So how do we select the ones that you want to see? Entertainment at highlight reel. Well we've done that based on excitement. Say We will say listening to the sound of the crowd and the noise that making within the stadium and how animated they are for every point. And then we're also looking at how automated. The players are using video technology and tour artificial intelligence system to recognize when the plays are related. You know fist pumping gesticulating and if we combine the data. The crowd excitement and the player excitement together than we can rank every point excitement and then we create highlight reels off the back of that data so the simple act of pressing a k on the side of a key on on the side of the court trick is a whole load of downstream systems and activities that ultimately results in all of the digital experiences. You say or the scopes up dicing an artificial intelligent tyler assistance. I'm creating that is really cool. I mean as a fine either. You just don't think about these like behind the scenes things that go on and I think that's pretty incredible especially eight. How the highlights are created from analyzing crowd reaction and players emotions. I had no idea that that was that was being used in Ice Basil. This is kind of music to journalists is and the broadcast media because just trying to think what what did they do. Before we had such technology you can imagine them frantically like sifting through bits of paper in the carpentry bulks China's search for facts and things and it's incredible really. How do you see? There's a lot of new technology. I guess you working hard. Every year to kind of continue improving emcee of greatness see wouldn't always striving for absolute talk quality. Where you see the beach every like major projects that you're kind of heavily invested in working on kind of in the next five ten years as anything that you know fans are. GonNa be getting the not guessing at the moment that you could kind of. Tell us about revealing team. That's the kind of yes or no answer to that question. Is there a lot going on? Yes absolutely and the Wilson. He beat some new things in the summer. We're we're the kind of early stages of proving some of that out of the main and go from quite exciting things going to be available Hopefully for the fans June helping give you even more of an insight into us going on this summer. Why can say the moment? Is that the use of data in all its forms. So data in the form of in the forms of statistics data in the forms of understanding the preferences of a Fan Do you came as a fan like stammering curve. Because he's got an amazing one hundred backhand and therefore his another up and coming player that you might not have spotted but you might be interested in because they've got similar playing styles are being able to understand your wants needs because of how you interact with the site and being part of the the my Wimbledon program which she's Wimbledon's community and fan program and giving us the preferences of the players you like and by by some of the helping us so view better is something that we're we're focused on quite significantly this summer bringing together more from what we can do with the data we've got whether that structure data schools but also unstructured data example. Dumping Sound. Then we can we. Can you even more of what you want when you want? Not What we're looking to try and do in the summer. It's really fascinating because I yeah for me. I feel like one of the biggest one of the biggest developments. One of the things has changed. The most overtime is is the APP and mean. Kim Is tennis fans the week through that cycle of where we get to a grand slam and we download the APP. And then we you know we see We have a law about the the experience because it feels like across the ground. Slabs is a different sort of level of experience. You get with each APP. We me and being came out. She ranked the Wimbledon not probably the highest of the four grandsons. Because I guess yeah it's a testament to that pursuit of perfection that the APP is a really useful companion For fans because it is able to kind of do all those things in terms of Tell you the stats in and just get information right to be honest because some of the other APPs we've we I've experienced any way of just kind of been you know they've not been a hundred percent and I think tennis is one of those sports where there is so much data out there so it will miss kind of it almost feels like the you know the stakes are high stakes high stakes almost kind of when it comes to women. When there's lots of survival was on me. Yeah not in a good to know that you re write the APPS says thank you that an overflow work and effort does go into. I mean Yeah. I mean guessing is one of those things and again just tennis is on one level is a very simple spoil and his tell you to people people either side of the net. Hannibal backwards and forwards and somebody leases. Appoint SOMEBODY WINS. Appoint an score increments but the the structure if they have the game allows you to infer and develop some more from it and the the fans really need that and I really appreciate it is blinding is not bad for you so you really notice it when he's not there and the fact that it is their seamlessly sometimes goes a mess. But it's not it's also not trivial task. Say nothing this is one of the things that people don't understand is you've got eighteen cents. A product eighteen tennis matches at Wimbledon released happening any single point in time all of which streaming data all of which are their own sat match statistics to a great extent cooler on all of that needs to be provided seamlessly within a couple of seconds. Somebody hang up keyboard on the side of cool to several million people around the world and the complexity of delivering is often not appreciated. And the search. Where why would you have to consider that as why women went with people like IBM so that we worry about it? But it is a non trivial task. But you get it wrong. It is very obvious and I suppose just one of the biggest challenges is I. Guess making sure that there's no technical hitches or or security breaches because everything is she of backup centers around the world of see the same data being collected if there's a sudden blackout I mean. Is that a big concern that you have to factor in when you're planning everything for the championships. Yep See so we. We have a high pilot. Say We've got technology on site where we need. Really rapid speed an and very low latency so scoring systems for example and values are designed to be resilient. Give you an example. We've got people looking at the royal box. If you looked up to the left hand side is you. Look at the roadblock in God's up there that's where all statisticians assisting a nonsensical will have we have three and that's so that we've got speed and accuracy between the three payments from these calling it. Somebody's entering the Dayton and some eastern the speed elements and the recount. There's also two systems cool side and then back in our operation center we have hey to data overseas and they can. They're on radio to all the calls around the grounds if there was any query around any point on any in any match they use a TV Mona system that allows them to go back. Frame by frame to any point on any court identify What the the right data answer is which could be what was inputs hits or if not they can make amends to the system centrally so that updates say we've essentially three levels of resilience just on capturing data on site and then around the world. We've got seven. I centers say that's for geographical speeding disbursement but he's all safe for volume and say assurance. I am most levels of resilience throughout all components of the architecture. You're going to be very straight around kind. The capturing the data in and of course the data is there to serve fans. But it's also there to serve players in IBM's row at Wimbledon. Yeah they do kind of improving enhance the fan experience. But it's also that the you know. The statistics are very useful and valuable data in general is very valuable to the player experiences while. And if if he if he doesn't mind could you just give us a outline? A gain of a war is the IBM do specifically for players. Were mooted yes. I mentioned that we'd go all of this data from all of these years that we system so the players have access to the system so first and foremost they can go and they can check on record but it can also look their parents and thus made available to all of the players but we also do is we provide them with. It's a personalized website. So that website is that to give them all of the information they need about the championships including the tennis. So they can. They can see that partic- bookings in there that transport bookings they get notifications around when the replay comes out so they they know when they're playing him what match what time the Ron's they can start to prepare for the next day and then we provide them with and that play reports throughout system. And if they're on one of the six main show courts and they also got video file which is embedded with matched to districts so they get four full report which is a huge data about tactics. Placements point-by-point data trails. And then they also can use. Use the video to say okay. What I'm just interested in my break points. Or I'm interested in my backhand winners or my unforced Iras and the video. Just jump tweet. Those points in the match speeds aids their their analysis of the performance and then we have a bespoke data signed services. So there're any particular questions. Any of the coaching staff of God about the players. Some we can we can pull requests. Well so is it possible for a player to a navy pro be practicing so I could go on their iphone or an IPAD and access their website and gay to their report like sites so they can literally be like okay. I need to welcome my backhand against my opponent in round two and they've learned that from you know literally from the smartphone or whatever and then they can let the baseline five seconds later is how is that how it could could what What if they were on a practice court? They could do that. But that's all and then all out that technology on the on the championship but the technology allows that to happen. Yeah and then we've also done some work Wimbledon onto national governing body but the U S T a R. He always he put on the US Open and done work with the US. Ta a coach advisor to and that again is looking at The the tennis database video data so it looks at physiological. Say how much of the plays being existed joined action? We can look. We look it up. Based on their height that body weight the speed around the cool how much how distance that covering and then we look mechanical intensity. So that's a weighted view of their acceleration deceleration as moving around the coal and combining that with that point trail. We can start to identify a correlations between That performance in the match and how the APP. Tim flowed versus the overall physical exertion. I wish is incredibly useful for coaches and has been developed in conjunction with the the US TA play development team. And that was used for the first time this year and Democrat with timeshare that the the US Open said this. There's more going on in that space. In terms of supporting how plays being couched developed and being pegged matches ultimately the players are performing at best on the coal then happy tournament. Yeah I can imagine that severely interesting area the moment because you know. There's a lot of talk in the tennis wild about Odin. Cool coaching so I could get to a point where is sounds like you know with. Ibm and you know you can do this. Kind of data delivery post-match. But you know if encore coaching becomes a thing becomes a thing on the tool becomes a thing at grand slams across the men and the women A key could it be. Could it get point where you know you almost feeding insights During the match being almost being that Even more reactive and and being able to kind of do it on a changeover. As opposed to you know after the handshake so I think that the the technology would be able to do that But just because the technology can doesn't mean that one should And I think that's one of the very important considerations in anything that's done Nina. Is this the right thing for the game as much for the for the? You know the game's administrators in this in various guises to kind of make that decision rouses and nothing without being technology forcing its way in and trying to make the change I think the other thing that you've got to consider not scenario is how do you make it even hajime kits something? The old players have equal access to because of you know available to everybody. Then you're providing an unfair advantage Say That's element as well and what levels at the toll might eat David Atom. So and so. I think there's a number of subtleties within. I agree it was more of a you know as I think. He's kind of an area to this being exploited. The maidment tonight of night out kind of data imply plays a role that but it's kind of a case of well how much how much overrode. Yes should they should data be playing but just going back to kind of women and kind of the Access? The players do have. This is kind of a service that only you know there. There's lots of different sorts of players that women to the players who have the whole entourage and then you've got players maybe just have you know one another one part time coach but you know the service you provide is something that's available to everyone. He plays eight eight tennis match When wouldn't from other for genius to to the gentleman singles? Yes we make. The same saves available to everybody. So that again is one of the principles of the Wimbledon or radio declare about is everybody has equal access say equal access to the player website equal access to reports based on the court the applying on every video file everybody gets statistics embedded in an not just a function of what we're able to deliver technically and then equal accessing. You Go to Query Abou- your performance and you can stretch. The query is in the question to us. Then you know you come to the press. He come down to our operations from as you you just asking we will help out so do you have a bunker so of on site where players could go to if if everybody stopped about how they come up every stopped about how to beat them. Can they literally go to some Some place on site and and ask you a question. Say We we do. Actually we do refer to as the bunkers because we're underground I'll actually underneath fourteen for those of you. Familiar with the women's Si- and underneath broke us and to say as with it in the dark recesses of the buildings but yeah what we're able to do is provide answers to questions were provided with. We're not able to do is provide the coaching advice. That may help interpret. That will help. Come up with the right question to ask in the first place. Say Yeah we provide the magic bullet. Yeah we don't provide the tennis tennis analysts that goes with the with the data but we can certainly provide the data and do you at Wimbledon Sam Challenge to see the light of day and see any tennis. Yourself or your. Tv's you want and seeing the light of day. Because I'd sort of move around between the the main cup offices which are over the top of the main mentioned skate-gate full and then we have specific tweets on site and the it operation. So I get to see above ground up tennis unless I'm walking past a call. They say you generally quite Biz even from one thing to another one that and do an IBM role full Wimbledon qualifying. You'll you'll set up a a Hamilton. Did you cover that as well? Yes so Wimbledon. Consider the championships to be three event qualifying. We are operationally ready in delivering the services that we need to deliver from qualifying. Say as they started to see your where they you can now buy tickets and go down to see qualifying that broadcasting some of the qualifying matches you talked to some of the aficionados. Tendencies as much as you can see it. Going to be done a qualifying. So if you've never been before you want to get right up close and really really good tennis. I can highly recommend it. It's gray setup down. I was really really lovely environment. So whip still providing the same kind of data services as we don't provide all of the play report materials down that that we may qualify for us because they denote the team starts down we all streaming the TV three feeds three Wimbledon Dot com and providing the same services NC stop some schools and so into the APPS and you spoke about earlier about being able to kind of scale up. You know the the you know Wimbledon forty nine weeks of the year. Is You know it's a private members club for the for three weeks at one of the biggest the biggest tennis tournament in the world. And we've seen in the news. Recently the Wimbledon has acquired land in is going to actually get more tennis courts on the main site and I imagine if you feel row with. Ibm It's kind of like Whoa. That's another that's going to be another big opportunities kind of scale up your your operations as well. Yeah it's incredibly exciting to be a satiated with Wimbledon when you know that plans to say progressive and They go to forty eight campus. At the moment they just did about another seventy five by the purchase of the anti bio the Gulf coast. Exactly what they're going to do with it. They're still working through. That and there were various plans. Be Things that are being considered Potentially moving qualifying up to that site. I'm not sure whether I'm they would have championships games. They're not I honestly don't know this rate between the two sites. So how are they going to overcome? That provide different access opportunities to cheap stations There on the false side of the Gulf coast say how does one factor that in But I mean all it means in macrey Thames is. The championships is continuing to think. Really big and really bold and Tim's of maintaining his position at the top of this bowl and dies very demonstrable exemplar that and it was the plans develop ensure technology and the overall experience for the fans coming to the guests coming to Wimbledon whoopy-doo front and center. That thinking is building out but whatever they do it will still be very Wimbledon. Nils Toby Amazing. Sound sounds fantastic. I have to say when Wimbledon comes on this year. I'm going to be taking extra special attention I think to to what's going on and looking forward to seeing. All of the kind of innovations year is just is actually quite incredible. When you think about it what you can do with that data already undocking. Its potential thing. Ibm just at the row. Full Front of under yeah especially with Wimbledon's kind of future expansion possibly in an exciting time to be following it so sam. Thank you so much for coming on. I hate this year.

Episode 1: The Fight for a True Democracy

"Quiet out here. The seagulls son is warm but it's not too humid humidity actually kind of a great day for fishing y sticks. What does it smell. Now's like dead. It's smells like the water what is going through your head right now. I don't know thinking about what they they went through. I don't know I just wanted to a lot what it was what it was like it. They say our people were born on the water. You're when it occurred. no-one can say for certain. Perhaps it was in the second week week or the third surely by the fourth when they had not seen their land or any land for so many days that they lost count was after the fear had turned to despair and the despair to resignation and the resignation gave way finally to resolve they knew then that they would not hug their grandmothers again our share a laugh with a cousin during commercials or seeing their baby softly to sleep but the same lullabies that their mothers had one son to them the tail eternity of the Atlantic Ocean had severed them so completely that it was as if nothing had ever existed before that everything they ever knew has simply vanished from the ERC some could not bear the realization shen the heave themselves over the walls of wooden ships to swim one last time with the ancestors others refuse to eat miles plants shut until their hearts gave out but in the suffocating hole of a ship called the white lion bound for where they did not know those who refuse to die understood that the men and women chain next to them in the dark. We're no longer strangers. They had been forced trauma. They have I've been made black by those who believe themselves to be white and where they were headed black equal slave so these were there people now what happened here. I mean we really don't know a lot a pirate ship by the name of white lion tails into the bay here and they needed to trade something values so that they could get supplies to make the rested their journey and what they traded twenty to thirty Africans in this would be at this place kind of ironically call point comfort where slavery in the British North American colonies that would go on to become the United States begins From The New York Times magazine. I'm Nicole Hannah Jones. This is sixteen eighteen nineteen Did you arrive barrier. Whatever that's here Happy Valentine's Downturns Dana Cole. This is a tape Nicole while Opportu this when I was a child. My Dad always flew a flag in our front yard. Our House is on a corner lot and in in the front yard right in the corner was this I couldn't tell you how taller was. It always seemed really garishly tall to me. At the time there was very tall aluminum unom flagpole. My parents didn't make a lot of money so our house always had paint chipping in. There was always something about the house that was in disarray array. You know the grass was looking disheveled or the railing on the stairs was falling off but the flag was always pristine as soon as it started to show even the slightest Tatler my dad would replace the flag with a fresh new flag. He would never allow a tattered flag to fly and I didn't understand it. I I didn't know other black kids whose parents were flying. A flag in their front yard allowed the white people who flags lots of people who flags My Dad was born on a share cropping farm in Greenwood Mississippi whereas family picked cotton in the same cotton fields that addin slave people had picked cotton not too long before that county the floor county in Mississippi lynched more black people than any any other county in Mississippi and Mississippi lynched more black people than any other state in the country so it was pretty devastatingly violence and hard place raced to live my dad's mom fled the south like millions of other black people during the great migration and came north to Waterloo and found many of the same barriers that she had sought to escape. She was forced to buy a the house on the block side of town. Most jobs were unavailable to her so she cleaned people's houses. My father went to segregated schools and at a young age my father joined the military so that he could get his way out of poverty but also for the reasons that so so many black people join the military which is he hoped that if he served his country his country might finally see him as an American. He loved being an army he was stationed in. Germany picked up German very quickly. He was so smart. He loved talking talking about that time. It was a period where he got to see things that poor black child born in Mississippi would not normally get see but the military didn't end up being away out for my dad for long he was was passed up for opportunities and the only jobs my dad ever worked were service jobs. He worked as a convenience store clerk. Gore bus driver and because of that this big pristine American flag flying in the front of our yard yard was deeply embarrassing to me and I didn't understand why he would feel that much love for country. That clearly did not love him. and I felt this way all through high school. I was no longer standing for the national uh-huh anthem. I stopped saying the pledge of allegiance and really throughout most of my adult life. I mean clearly I know American. I I was born here. Every family member for generations back that I know were all born here but I never felt like I could claim fully that I was an American American but but it wasn't until I really started researching and reading and thinking about this project that my own thinking started to shift that I realized my dad understood things that I never knew. I now understand banned for the first time why my dad was so proud to fly that flag. My name is huge. I was born in Charlottesville Virginia. My grandfather belonged to Thomas. My grandfather was one hundred and fifteen years old when he died now. I am one hundred and one new now in my boy do we were saying we blown you. Leaders like yourself. How whole option bench puts you mentioned beat on Interstate. Interstate bidding on cattleman accordion makes makes people people for you So you kind of have to put yourself in the scene. It is June of Seventeen seventy six and Thomas Jefferson listen at the very young age of thirty three years old has been tasked with drafting the document that is going to declare to the world why the British North American colonies the thirteen colonies want to break off from the British Empire he goes to Philadelphia and rents two rooms on the edge of town along the river and sits down to draft what we all know now is a declaration of independence when in the course of human events and it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another we sitting at this portable Mahogany writing desk that he carries with him and he pulls out some paper a very nice quill pen and he starts to write these words that almost every American can recite by Heart Declaration of independence. We hold these truths. We'd be sell to behold these truest to be self evident created that all men are created created equal. They become some of the most famous words in the English language they are endowed by their creator with certain was Burton Blood Hilbert rights that among these are life liberty liberty and that's a suit of happy life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That's what makes us unique. That's what makes us from the Sheriff Values Bruce. We all hold so do but when most Americans don't know is that while he's writing these lofty words for liberation he had brought with him one of the many enslaved people who may own in order to serve him and to keep him comfortable now then enslaved person was a teenager and that teenager was the half brother of Thomas Jefferson's wife what that means is. Thomas Jefferson's father-in-law had children with one of the women that he enslaved so actually he was Thomas Jefferson's brother-in-law and so as he's writing these ideals. He knows that they will not apply even to his his own family members at the time that Thomas Jefferson is drafting the declaration a hundred and fifty two years have passed since those first Africans were sold into Virginia. The enslaved population has grown from twenty two now five hundred thousand some people fully one fifth of the population is now enslaved it has grown from a conditional institution. Russian where some of those first twenty were able to become free after a term of time to one where black people are born into it they die into it and they passed that status Addis onto their children. You now have generations of black people who have never known a day of freedom and who will never know a day of freedom and yet when Thomas Jefferson's contemporaries talk in public about why the colonists need to be free from England the refer to themselves as slaves as slaves to the King of England and so the columnists are being criticized in newspapers for this obvious duplicity duplicity by those who don't believe that they should break off from the British Empire one of them writes. How is it that we hear the loudest yolks for freedom from the drivers of negroes another rights to Benjamin Franklin and says perhaps you should ask the people who were actually enslaved. What slavery is like mm-hmm? Thomas Jefferson of course is deeply aware of the hypocrisy and and aware of the criticism of the hypocrisy so as he's drafting the declaration he includes a passage in there were actually blames the King of England for introducing slavery into the colonies he'd call slavery a crime and he says that the King of England committed this crime but that's not our fault it was not are doing this is just one more thing that the King of England did to wrong us so he brings this document to the Continental Congress and it doesn't take long before delegates from the Carolinas and from Georgia look at that language about slavery and One can imagine they he said what the hell are you doing and they say that there is no way that they are going to sign this document as long as that passage about slavery remains and so it is struck and the thirteen colonies signed the declaration in the declaration goes out into the world without mentioning slavery at all and we start the revolutionary war somehow miraculously these thirteen scrappy abby colonies managed to defeat one of the most powerful empires in the world and we become a new nation and sell account is gathering they try to figure out the language anguish that they are going to create in the founding document that we of course come to know as the constitution but now they have a problem trying to leave behind an old country they believe was antithetical to freedom and create a new one that they believe will be defined by freedom this country that was going to be based on individual rights on a government of the people for the people and by the people but this was also a place that at this time was still practicing institution of slavery and so the colonists have a choice voice to make are they going to be the country of their ideals the ideas that they were putting paper country based on the idea that all oh man were created equal and if they were going to be that country then they were going to have to abolish the situation of slavery or are are they going to be wedded to the institutional slavery because they depended so heavily on the wealth that was being generated from it and in that case they can't really lever the document that they want to right and so what they do is they decide that they're going to try to have it both ways and they baked that contradiction John Right into the constitution both codifying and protecting the institution of slavery but never actually mentioning the word and so they have written what is perhaps the most radical constitution in the world and from the beginning. They knew they were going to violate. It's mostly essential principles. They call this country a democracy but it wasn't one Sometimes I'll be frank. sing ever reach him sheriff's seeing that whole hour we are invited lied or I can understand now but I can't named someday when I'm not host the voice now all. I wish I could Irish ooh ooh to kill. MOCKINGBIRD is the most successful American play in Broadway history says sixty minutes rolling stone gives it five stars calling it. A landmark production of an American American classic to kill a Mockingbird alr- is one of the greatest place in history raves. NPR The New York Post says it will change how you see the world. This is what great feeders for four all rise for her police to kill mockingbird a new play by Aaron Sorkin. This is a phenomenon says New York magazine on Broadway at the Shubert theatre. Get tickets at telecharge. Dot Dot Com on August fourteenth eighteen sixty two Abraham Lincoln invites five free black men to the White House for meeting meeting. They are part of the black elite in Washington. DC and he wants to have a conversation with them. The civil war has been going on for about a year and Abraham Lincoln is worried because the war is not going well and because it's not going well. He's feeling like he might have to do something drastic. He's considering taking very radical. Step of liberating the enslaved people who are in the confederate states dates and he's thinking about doing this as a war tactic understanding that if he takes away the labor force that might cripple them or at least the threat of it that would force them to remain in the union but he's also concerned about what it might mean to suddenly free four million enslaved people and what the consequences this is of that might be. I can imagine these five distinguish men are very excited to get Lincoln's invitation Haitian. They are abolitionists they have been pressuring Lincoln to abolish slavery but when they get there they are greeted by President Lincoln and and another man his name is James Mitchell. The James Mitchell is a new employee. He's only been at the White House for a couple of days and his job is a new job and it's called Commissioner of Immigration. Now that's immigration with a e meaning. His job was not to help people to enter the country but the help people to Exit Lincoln doesn't waste any time according to documents that recount what happened that day uh he tells the man that he had gotten funds from Congress to ship black people once they had been freed to some other country and then they can said you and we are different races your race suffer very greatly many of them by living amongst us while our suffer for from your presence in a word he said we suffer on each side we are taught to think of Abraham Lincoln as the great emancipator and he was but the truth is like many white Americans he was a post hostess slavery because it was a cruel and unjust institution in opposition to this nation's ideal but he was also opposed to black political and social equality as he said in a speech that he gave in eighteen fifty three he consider black people a quote troublesome presence and that they were incompatible with democracy see that was designed for white people as he said in that speech free them and make them politically and socially are equals. My own feelings will not admit of this and if mine would we well know that those of the great mass of white people will not and as those five black men stood in the White House. I wonder what it must have felt like these men had been fighting for the liberation of millions and had waited for this moment only to be told that once they were granted their freedom they were going to be asked to leave the country of their birth and to make it even worse. Lincoln then tells them that is their fault halt that the country is fighting a civil war at all he says although many men engaged on either side did not care for you one way or the other without the the institution of slavery and the Colored Race as a basis the war could not have an existence. That's why the president said it is better for us both therefore to be separated so Lincoln's the meeting and one of the men tells them that they will go back consider his proposal Lincoln then tells them take your full-time no hurry at all after that meeting those men made it clear that they were not interested in taking Lincoln up on his offer to leave the country of their birth mm-hmm. There's a quote by a different group of black abolitionist that really sums up the way that most black Americans felt and that quote said this is our our home and this is our country beneath it side lie the bones of our fathers here we were born and here we will die after everything that black Americans have been through in this country that they didn't immediately take-up Lincoln's offer and go somewhere else and start over Israelian astounding testimony to their belief in the American ideals by choosing to stay black people were saying this is our country. We Are American and we're actually going to work to make these founding ideals of reality and in the years that followed after the civil war ends a very short period called reconstruction began and so you see the formerly enslaved pushing Shane they're white allies in Congress to start to change our founding documents and to actually resolve those contradictions that were baked in they do this through getting amendments passed of course amendments are the way that we change our constitution so of course very first amendment that they have to pass is the thirteenth amendment which abolishes the institution of slavery and what's interesting about that is this is actually the first time that the word slavery is mentioned in the Constitution is in the amendment that finally abolishes it they passed the Fourteenth Amendment and the fourteenth amendment guarantees Aaron Teas that all of the enslaved people will finally be citizens of the country of their birth. It also ensures for the first time that the laws cannot treat people differently based on their race. This is called the equal protection clause and this clause will be used again and again really all the way up until now to guarantee guarantee that all Americans are treated as equal citizens and finally they passed the Fifteenth Amendment which probably is the most important amendment amendment when we're considering what a democracy is supposed to be the fifteenth amendment guaranteed the right to vote no matter what your race is now. It didn't include women at that time but certainly set the stage and it's for the first time guaranteed that whether you were born person who was enslaved whether you're white or you're black lack you had the right to exercise your vote in this democracy. The only reason we saw all of these gains in the south was because they were federal troops there and those federal troops were holding back the violence of white southerners owners who were not interested in seeing these gains this all changes with the presidential election of eighteen seventy six it was a contested did election and breath affir- behaves is the Republican candidate and remember back then it was Republicans who are the Progressive Party and they were the party of Lincoln that was working to pass all of this progressive legislation but Rutherford B Hayes really wants to win this election and so he makes a deal with if the Democrats in Congress that if they give him their electoral votes he will withdraw the federal troops from the South and end reconstruction so he makes the deal and the troops leave and we immediately see white southerners implement a campaign to force black people back into the position that they had been in before reconstruction the suppression of Black Life Life over the next five decades would be so devastating that would come to be known as the deer the second slavery you can you the truth. I don't know how I'm living. I'm the oldest one that I know what still time for people to Sri Lanka. If I sell it'll be sleeve again. I take a growing and it all right away. Thank you coach and not us incredible to kill. A MOCKINGBIRD has not played to a single empty-seat reports sixty minutes.

Lee's to kill a mockingbird a new play by Aaron Sorkin a New York Times critic's pick tickets at telecharge dot com but they days America and her allies crowd before the White House await the announcement. I have received this afternoon soon. A message from the Japanese government which specifies the unconditional surrender of Japan reporters rush out to relay the newest news one anxious world and touch off rations throughout the country unconfined in February of nineteen forty six and a young black man is sitting on a bus watching the Georgia Pines flypast the windows. He's on his way to see his wife and probably very excited because he's been away at war and he hasn't seen her in a very long time he'd been fighting for this country in world war or two and just that day he'd been honorably discharged for a service but he is a black man who is returning to the Jim Crow South. You can never with if you don't keep you in them. Separate the whole trouble with its integration business is it probably will end up with mixing socially but to tell me. I don't even have the right to fight to protect the white race. We are going to maintain segregated schools down in Dixie. Well I the aim this mixed marriages and becoming equal with a white. You got to keep the white and the black what happened on that. Day is a story that would be told across the country good morning. This is Orson Welles speaking. I like to read you David. It was a story that would actually change the course of history. I is it would a junior being duly sworn to depose and state as follows that I'm twenty seven years old on a veteran of the the United States on you having served fifteen months in the South Pacific won battles. I was honorably discharged riding the bus Georgia Atlanta. The bus driver stopped at a small drugstore. He wants to use the restroom stopped tied weight from invite a chance to go to the restroom. He Kristen said no when he cursed me hard hard. Kristin Beck on the bus driver gets upset with him and they have a little bit of argument. What are doesn't think much of it. He goes to the bathroom runs back to to the bus and the bus keeps going but then a few miles down the road the bus stops and the bus driver gets off the bus and then calls and tells her that he needs to get it off the bus as well so what are gets off the bus and before he can even utter a word I ache and he got off and went and got the police. They didn't get a chance have to explain the policemen struggling with the billy across my head and told me to shut up the second ahead by a police officer over my left arm and twisted it behind my back. I figured he was trying to make me resist did not resist list against him. He asked me was I discharged and I told him yes when I said yes that is when he started beating me with the billy hitting me across the top of the head after that. I grabbed his billing running out of his hand. Another policeman came up through his gone. Turn to drop the billy. He dropped me so I drop the billy. After I dropped village policeman hell has gone on the other. One was beating and the blows. Let's keep coming and they keep coming to the point. That watered loses consciousness whatever it is still wearing his crisp army uniform. He's been discharged just a few hours earlier when he comes to. He's in Jail L. Next morning could not see he was beaten so severely by that police officer that that he would never see again so what is beating was not at all unusual ward war to had done exactly with many white people had feared that once black people are allowed to fight in the military and when they traveled abroad and the experienced what it was like not to live under assistant racial apartheid that will be much harder to control them when they came back back men in their uniform for seeing is being unduly proud so these men who had served their country who would come home powdery wearing the uniform to show their service for their country would find that this actually made them a target of some of the most severe violence but what was unusual what happened after what its case was picked up by the N. double. ACP EP and they take him on a bit of tour where they're saying look what happened to this man who served his country and that's largely seen as one one of the sparks of the modern civil rights movement people coming in from all over the country back to the second sustained movement kind of black people trying to secure equal rights before the law and equal place in this democracy during the early week of February nineteen sixty the demonstrations that came to be called the fit in movement exploded across the South Negro youngsters paraded with placards handed out literature and tried to sit in at lunch gallons of giving realize is how important official reaction was swift severe gleam in Georgia for your injustices. The government is responsible for the injustice. The government can how long but it'd been and in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight three hundred and fifty years after the introduction of the first enslaved Africans pins into the colonies should alleged. I have a challenge to all of us. Congress passes the last of the great civil rights legislation to go to work unit community than our stage in our homes in our hearts it ends legal discrimination on the basis of race from all aspects of American life through eliminate tonight the last vestiges of injustice in our beloved we often think of the civil rights movement as being about black rights but the civil rights movement was never just about the rights of black people it was about making ideals of the constitution hole and so when you look at the laws born out of black resistance these laws guaranteeing rights for all Americans experience marinas which Black-americans were tapping did not go unnoticed by the rest of America. I mean basically every other rights struggle that we have seen. We talk public accommodations by ten years ago the black we're. GonNa have to start all over again with women disability rights gay rights women's rights. People with disabilities. Were still victims. Kim's of segregation and discrimination all calm from the efforts of black civil rights struggles job to have you back not the viewed as a piece of me. No Americans will ever again be deprived of basic guarantee of life liberty and the first suit of happinesses delegration over update on the steps of disagrees with one of its most momentous civil rights decisions the Supreme Court found gay the and Lesbian Americans have consciously might right to marry the majority founded justification in the fourteenth amendment ridden after the civil war to who extend equal protection under law to freed slaves so we are raised at thank Abou Seventeen seventy six as the beginning of our democracy but when that ship arrived on the horizon at Point Comfort in sixteen nineteen that decision made by the colonists to purchase that group of Twenty to thirty human beings beings that was the beginning to and it would actually be those very people who were denied citizenship in their own country who were denied ride the protections of our founding documents who would fight the hardest and most successfully to make those ideals real not just for themselves but for all Americans Americans it is black people who have been the perfect of this democracy. When I was a kid I must have been in fifth or sixth grade. Our teacher gave us an assignment. It was a social the class and we were learning about different places that people came from and this was her way of kind of time the story of the great American melting pot so she told us all to research our ancestral land and to write a small report about it and then to draw flag. I remember kind of looking up and making eye contact with the other black girl who was in the class because we didn't really have an ancestral land that we knew of slavery had made it so that we didn't know where we came from in Africa. We didn't have a specific country three and we could say that we were from the whole continent but even so there's no such thing as an African flag and so I remember are going to blow by my teacher's desk it was on the window pane along the left side of the classroom and spinning it to the continent continent of Africa and just picking a random African country so I went back to my desk and I hi drew that random African countries flag and I wrote a report about it and I felt ashamed. I felt ashamed one because I was lying but I also felt ashamed because I felt like I should have some other country and that all the other kids could trace their roots elsewhere and I can only trace my roots to the country that had enslaved us. I wish now that I could go back and talk talk to my younger self and tell her that she should not be ashamed that this is her ancestral home and she should be proud to be an American as her dad was and that she should boldly and proudly draw though all stars and Stripes claim this country as her own UH to kill a mockingbird is unmissable and unforgettable double Raves Rolling Stone Five Stars The New York Times declared it a critic's pick saying this is a mockingbird for our moment a beautiful elegiac nick satisfying even exhilarating new play about justice in America.

409- California Love Scared Straight

"This is ninety nine percent of visible. I'm Roman Mars. I love podcasts, I really do and not just mine and the one some associated with. But I listened to dozens of podcasts a week and I'm always looking for some spark that excites me comforts. Me Challenges me entertains me. I. Love Seeing the Boulevard podcasts it would never occur to me to mock like I know the joke everyone has podcast now. But. I, always want more. You know not all of them are for me but when one hits I just get excited about its existence I get excited about existence in general in this happened to me when I was listening to a new show called California love it's a podcast about seeking to understand what it means to belong and not belong to the places that we are frahm and the episode I thought would most resonate with with you beautiful merits. Graffiti, which is a huge part of the visual expression of cities. There is a cultural war being played out before our eyes in the back and forth between tigers and anti tankers, and this kind inhumane story is about those signs in what it feels like to be in the middle of it, where the stakes to an outsider can seem so low, but actually couldn't be higher. This is California love. Here's Walter. Thompson. Hernandez. Spring twenty seventeen and I'm on the seven thirty, three bus line heading West on menace boulevard. I'm sitting in the back of the bus. It's the early afternoon and there's nobody else in next to me. I'm listening to music my headphones. When I noticed? No friend. It's Ivan. And we used to be in the same circles the tag early two thousand. I've been hasn't changed one bit. He's still wearing a tee shirts still speaks from the side of his mouth like a used to when we were teenagers. His hair still cut really loud too. It's been more than fifteen years and we last saw one another. We Dab each other up and hug. He says next to me. Hey. You still right. Yeah. I do story. This is California. And I'm Walter. Years. I was wearing the gray sweater matching sweat pants at the officers at issue to me. My last name was written on the back of my sweater to identify. Ninety, seven. Straight program at the downtown La Central Police Station three times. Twice weekly classes and I'll Saturdays. s when we have boot camp. They made us do push ups. Squats sprints and more beams and on the. Roof. About. Two dozen of us all under the age of seventeen or in the program. Usually, the judge orders to attend for some crime committed. One of the guys with graffiti legend named site a south central writer whose name can be seen throughout the city. He was we'll right is called in offense bomber. His stuff was everywhere. Like Dan site. What I do remember his. All the cops get mad at me screaming at me and my face. The saliva all of my face. Can't. Some people were there for skipping school fighting or violating probation beside. We're both there for vandalism. I had. Ten eleven warrants for graffiti, all kind of stuff. I started tagging with a group of friends in middle school. And once I learned how to tag I'm beginning to paint the streets. Maybe it with all the things I was seeing and experiencing at home that job to be as far away from it as possible. My mom had a boyfriend at the time. This Y dude who was unemployed smoke we drank heavily every single day. He was abusive and controlling towards me and my mom, and I would often physically fight which led to numerous visits from the police. Home definitely summer I didn't want to be. Insights on life. It was just his rocky, his mind. Me Mom were sleeping in parks and the car. In peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches for night. We slept in a lot of back streets. South Central La and Western imperial, and then the sheriff's will take out. and. We'll move on one block over. Graffiti with a lot of things for me. It was an outlet. Away from me to take out the rage pain in the hurt is experiencing at home. The streets in the walls. They're basically my therapy. I existed when I did defeated. I existed. That's why I started doing that since of. Awakening Rebirth The first Saturday. The Emerson Guards yelling at us. and. He and I smiled at each other the whole time. We soccer. Our moms are both with us dead de and when you guys can put their hands on us. So we felt safe. And we talked. The skier straight. It actually didn't scare me straight. In fact, got me deeper. Into Graffiti. About. Two years after I finish the program I started catching spots with a guy named aloe. On writer graph world. And the crazy part. He looked just like one of my favorite rappers. Everyone used to call me to. Just a few months we became brothers and we joined the same crew. You're young and. Willing to do graffiti. So I was like, Hey, we could be best season. Let's do this together. Alice talking like an old head right now but he's really only year older than me. He and I spent every day together painting the city. This going on and tagging. I remember there were times I'm like. Really, feel like doing is like come on let's go and like. All right. Let's go and we would go and then it's like once we're there it's like like so like I did this. There's a lot of people like I knew a lot of people to and not everyone I don't say oh. Yeah. Let's go.

Because he was also unhappy antibodies online. We were just kids we understood each other's pain and how ignored we both felt. Allah taught me how to tag on Venice Boulevard Bus Lines. Spots in the panels and the headlights. I taught him how to do everything. He knows. So. Describing the into a transparent case. So people wouldn't be able to see it. There has to be some way for you to make which you just wrote pop out into the world. So usually what we do is we would take like dirt from somewhere. So we lick our fingers and rub the top of the lights, you would smart that on the spot. The dirt would end up failing to spaces of the. Graffiti spot that you. Ban? Now you're spots going to be seen.

Guy Joe, made it his mission to buffalo tags using paint and equipment he had purchased himself. Seeing him buff. I'm out. The of wasn't filling because creating the article a lot of me like this one time when I spent an entire do peace with large bubble style letters on a rooftop ner Pico Robertson. And it was gone the very next morning and I knew Joe. and. It wasn't just us. It was all of us. There was a whole city kids of spots trying to be seen, and then there's the why guy named Joe will come out any races again. Joe was definitely a villain. Fell, he was our villain. You right all day long but you're never gonNA get up in the morning. I'll be buffed. You couldn't even read the sign earlier. You could not read the sign. Remains Joe McConnell. They call me the graffiti guerrilla among other things. Look that not beautiful I mean it's not like it was the day. What is Nice? Net Nice looking. Joe Was a woman anti-graffiti unit. You may have seen his infamous lineup of Pico Fairfax. Graffiti no longer accepted here. Please find a day job. Thank you. Nineteen ninety-three Joe Conti the graffiti. Gorilla. Joseph Chases. And paint over our spots. We all thought he was the city employee. But really directed alone. After the King Rights, our neighbor organized the building still burned out trees planted all these people wanted to fix the neighborhood helicopters wherever. I went this meeting and they had all these things that they wanted people do was only like seven or eight of us there. So I'm sitting there I'm thinking I'm not GonNa say anything I'm not volunteering I. I'm working seven days a week I two little kids I'm making money I'm not. So they said, graffiti was last thing on the thing. SASON you're taking graffiti I'm like, yeah, cool. That'd be excellent. There's no graffiti around. I go out the next day and I started driving around I'm like Oh, my God. Outright. A. Late summer two thousand. Alone I spent eye-catching spots all over the west side before go back with hostage L.. And then a four am got a weird craving for Hawaiian Punch so decided to walk around. And then. You took a streak and then for some stupid reason. I, was like hey. Let's record this. And I took the video camera that I had. With him make it to the store, we cross the street. And you decide to start tagging on a trash gap. And my domes- instead of looking out looking back I'm looking into the Lens at you. And Police pulled out on us. The cops handcuffed US made us out on the curb and then separated us for questioning. I was already on probation for previous graffiti offense. Thousand for sure going to Juvie. The COP says to me. Back then it hasn't started using my mom's last name Hernandez. So I said. Walter Thompson in the cops were like. ME. They thought Walter. Thompson sounded like an eighty year old dudes name. And now that I'm thinking about it. They were kind of right. I remember them asking me about that. So what's your friends? And I was like Basil. Because I'm not trying to give up your name I. Didn't know what she said sounds like Basil, and the Cup was like. I was like I don't know I. Don't know his name. Is I was like maybe he's not going to give his name. So. Allen iced are laughing at the cops for not believing me. But the COPS Day didn't think it was funny. They got mad and they got frustrated and put us in separate cars. took us back to station. I went home after three hours. But Allah. He was almost three days. No me as site. SL. JT. A monkey MIA to graduate from high school. To kick me out because she fussy Kinda Ford to take care of me more. So here, I am thinking about ready to go to community college. I leave him home garage is sleeping in the garage of the dog. Normandy in seventy six. Because he can let me stay in his house, but he got a garage. In Me To me in a dog fight over who is sleep on the couch. That's word feed. He really kicked into high gear because I was out the press only hungry. And this is only my spirits up lend that trauma doing graffiti. Is a human need to express yourself. Unfortunately, the lower classes in the impoverished don't have the spaces in the walls to. Be. Creative. Own Nothing. They. Can't write on their own apartment building kicked out. They don't have a house to do in the backyard. So we're GONNA do that the streets are they can be. We're GONNA got stars and they got they got can't control of popcorn at the top. In the game for a while. This is nice once I started noticing it and all that I got interested in it, and then I started studying it and go now mainly with taggers. I said look I just WANNA. Travel you guys. They're like Oh. You stupid web with unlike. Okay. Learn about this. No matter what I just WanNa learn see that sewer skinny goes up. POPs like they're that little circle that's called can't control off. There's nobody I don't think there's anybody in the world gets graffiti like me I. Don't I don't it would take a lot of. This stuff. This is stuff on top of stuff I'd profit stuff. A lot of people get. They don't get that graffiti has to start with all these tags and then it moves to throw up and then it can be a Maryland, they can be a burner can be a production to give you know, and so only a small amount of the people are. Going to be able to get to to the art side of it, the real side of it, whatever that might be and then make living. That's cool. But if they don't, they aren't allowed to tag, they won't get there and if in the world would really suck if we didn't have graffiti E. Okay. Yeah. Some of this stuff takes a while to get to. But. Not every day it takes no time. I don't get excited by graffiti. It doesn't bother me that it keeps going up it has to go up otherwise artists can emerge and they should be entitled to emerge I. Mean It's it's a lot of them. Their stories are interesting to hear. Well, Kinda can read it. So why would I keep painting graffiti if if I enjoy it Because they have to do it to expected to get painted out and three kind of gives them a fresh cameras to keep going. It all sounds like to me to. How could somebody love graffiti so much and spend every single day destroying it doesn't really add up right. It sounds like something. He says in front of tag so that he won't get beat up. After getting, arrested with Allah changed my life. Mama's the reason. She picked me up from the station at six am. And it wasn't the first time. But there was something about that nine thousand different. She lived worn out. She looked like a mom who had no more fight left and I was really tired of disappointing their. As afraid of her being afraid for me. And I knew had to change things up. I remember trying to call you. And like you're avoiding me. And then I finally got a hold of you.

My best friend and I wouldn't see your talk each other for seventeen years. It was one of the hardest choices I ever made because I left friends behind who I consider family.

In all nine then Allah city attorney Carmen Challenge at emission to go after writers. Began to gather street level intelligence impropriety injunctions targeting graffiti crews. Whilst that was imprisoned. Tags, rejected him to provide support including one. He didn't know that will. But. Who is really tight with? Aloe wrote me. While in prison. I met him only once impersonal minibus. I never hung out with him like that. He went to prison for something that we were all doing. That could have been any one of us is what I'm saying.

So I can trophy which makes people's lives better. So for me, it's just I spent a small fortune on it. But it really Saves me mentally. By twenty, fifteen hours working as a journalist and writing about race and identity. One day I received the call from Childhood Friend Nicky Tell me about the company started in Compton. Nikki's company was primarily hiring undocumented workers formerly incarcerated people to groups of people who live with the mall stigma. I walked out of the lobby and saw a frame newspaper article featuring a black man standing in front of the wall. I took a step closer look really familiar. I took another step forward and noticed that the wall red S I G H T and big and bold letters. It was site. Oh. Dan that's I from stare straight. Dino site I asked Nicky. Site she replied yeah works here. He's actually in the back driving the forklift. Let's go see back there. What are the odds? The three of US went out to lash that day and began reminiscent about scarce straight Angra FYVIE. Something, told me to ask side of Aloe. Because, there weren't a lot of other black artists so what I have to live. Aloe site replied yes my boy. My jaw dropped all the way to the floor Gimme is number I said. I called him. And nobody answered. I went home after lunch, and later that day received a phone call from an unknown number. I answered in this mysterious voice asked. This is better. al-anon medical week later at Earth Cafe in downtown. La. I was nervous and I was scared. Because even though a lot of time had passed, I didn't know how he felt maybe he felt abandoned by me. When I saw him, he did really like to buck anymore. He now had a fro and tattoos leaves halfway down arms. Honestly, he looked like he had been through a lot. But he still had same charming smile and that same laugh. So much had happened since we last saw one another he had got married. He had survived to drug overdoses vegetarian. And of all things like of all the things in the world, he was studying to become a lawyer a lawyer. We talked about our families about food and our friends. And towards the end of the night, he looked at me and said, he had something to give me I was just like, Hey, remember this. And I remember your faces dislike. How He handed me a slap tag remember those post office figures he talked about earlier. Will I have failed this one out the same night we got arrested. Before that Weird Hawaiian Punch craving. This laptop out our names on it said, Bazo said Aloe an asset, our crews. And he kept once laughed tag through the years through everything. And now I had us lap tag. And is one of the most important things in my life. Now. Prophecy what our OWN NEMESIS JOE is up to. Our thinking I don't know. So I found Joe on the Internet a contacted him and it's been a few days with them. IT TURNS OUT JOE hasn't changed. He's still coming a feeding and he's still doing it for three. I was wrong about Joe. This dude, really surprise me. He lives in south central with his wife and cares for abused pit bull. A yard wishing a dog where. I really expected Joe Agreement. The with read magazines. But he did it. He does have an award from trump. For. Graffiti? Abatement. President trump best guy in the planet for community in the State of California forty million. People. One's got one of those in the state of California anyways. Joe Actually hates the government these people don't give. Our people? What he means that every day people working class folks and especially people of Color. and Joe's also really into fitness. He's an avid bike rider NFL football player from the south side of Chicago Verdy Guy Stole my story. Remember the film rudy the classic. Story that was my thing man I wanted to walk out of football. Player. He NFL. He got there three years ahead of me and took my. crease over well we are. Yeah. I decided to bring Jones side together because I wanted them to talk about how they perceive one another. Side. Thanks Joe. With a part of the problem. You know just another white dude who's part of the system to lock around. Joe On the other hand had never met site the human. He Alava species but he didn't know the man. He thought it was just another from the hood who got caught up in the system. So I invited both of them to my aunts Alpha talk because it was a neutral space. One above them to feels comfortable. Possible. Really. Didn't know what was GONNA happen. Sites like somebody who is really chilly mellow. Sit here just kind out there. Are you. Still. Walls. You really that's good. I like that. Emma ons, dining table and talking about what they agreed on graffiti. Looking on the outside of. Ugly. Horrible. It's this and that but once you see foot into that world, it's a whole another a whole another. Of on the matter. You'll never be able to relate unless you hang out with a feature artists or art graffiti artists you'll never been relate it'll just be judging from outside and inside with a messing around he came ready. He even reached the graffiti community on facebook to see if they had any questions for Joe do you want to hear those questions? Let's go shy and blanks WANNA know why you buffed out the top ninety two and told us told him get day jobs I thought it was just funny. It was just funny. It came from an American Express commercial another person Xyz you some of the questions were really angry cal Trans Trans is so insane about how they buff burners told Joe he was really hated. Who It on you they plotted on your family. Wow. A lot of people went out to your kids secretly I can't say who okay and is is almost similar to like. I don't want to say. Disrespectful. But like you know how a cop goes out and shoots a kid or arrests, kids and people feel that pain forever. Yeah. Is kind of like the same. It seemed like the that people went to Joseph is is really affected him especially since Joe Alaska sign. He was visibly shaken and he really let down his guard. Joe revealed a different side to him that people aren't used to seeing. It performance anymore. If felt like we were finally getting the Real Joe after lost my son I lost my grandmother, my parents, my brothers, my in laws my sister in law's a lot of artists a lot people I knew people my community I mean there was a time in like. Ninety nine through. Over seven eight where there's a lot of funerals, there's just so many funerals and it just I I mean it's it's a lot and so I just and then with a lot of things that mainly with my son and they're still fall off from that, which is now almost it's almost twenty one years. You know and so I just kind of then just really became allow Monica to off no no, no no no. No. I've met a lot of different fiore's orders. At least about thousand of them. That I know more. At. The same stories you. Are Similar. And I'm listening to. Listening to you and what people don't know influ forget is any kind of painting. It's therapeutic. painting doing art activates one side of the brain. The helps heal trauma. You've been dusen trauma. I feel that the more the longer that person paints. Reflects how much healing they need and how much the pope that. Painting provides. I still do it because I still suffered trauma. That has not been rudy yet up rooted. So And I see it and you. You might not be doing graffiti but you are painting over. Yet it is still in a way therapeutic and provides a sense of. Relief. And the other side of that is that. It's fun. and. There's some. There's some people that are game as beaver not. In that moment I think joe finally felt seeing her to. He wasn't the in your face Joe, the Wild Joe, the Railroad Rajko you know. He was soft and he was gentle. As I. I'm pretty sure he felt the same way too. People see walls with her feeding on them and think that the people responsible for the tags. Criminal. But it's hard to know that there's a whole life spray print that emerges on the wall. And to be real. It's impossible to see the things that people are dealing with at home. It's already hard enough being a teenager, but imagine having a way to express yourself. That's really hard. Some, it has property damage. But what about the damage people are experiencing in their own lives? Each graffiti is a window into someone's life. Sometimes though. The windows to see through because there's writing on. But each window in each wall tells a different story. The wall the first thing I see when I traveled to a new place. They. Tell me everything I need to know about where math. The alert me a danger. Tell me who lives in that community. And wanting to be aware of. Let's go back to that bus. Spring, two, thousand, seventeen. I'm on the seven thirty three bus lines and wedding west minutes boulevard. I'm sitting in the back of the bus. It's early afternoon and there's nobody else in next to me.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle step back from royal duties

"Hello this is the global news podcast from the BBC World Service with reports and analysis from across the world the latest news seven days a week BBC World Service Service. PODCASTS are supported by advertising. This is the global news podcast from the BBC World Service. I'm Jonathan Savage and in the early hours of Thursday. The ninth of January. These are our main stories Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry has announced he and his wife Meghan or stepping back from their roles a senior members of Britain's royal family and plan to spend more time in North America president trump has said Iran appears to be standing down after it targeted a two airbases housing. US forces in Iraq. The former boss of Rancho Nissan Carlos Gone has strongly criticized Japan's judicial system in his his first public comments since he fled the country but Japan rejects the criticism. Saito custody. Tom Any coq nine ninety. He has been propagating both within within Japan and internationally false information on Japan's legal system and its practice. This is absolutely intolerable. It also in this podcast vandals in northeastern Greece of deface raw car dating back. Thousands of years and a French court has announced that the former President Nicolas Sarkozy will stand trial later this year for corruption and influence peddling and we begin here in the UK where a surprise announcement one of Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have have announced their stepping back from their roles as senior members of the British Royal Family in a statement released on instagram. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex say they plan to become financially independent. The intend to divide their time between Britain and North America last year. The Duke and Duchess began legal action against British newspapers I complaining of relentless propaganda against them. The BBC understands the couple. Didn't consult anyone else in the royal family. Before releasing the statement Dan Wootton the executive editor of the Sun newspaper broke the story. He told BBC. There's been a long running rift in the British royal family. People like to hear it. It's very uncomfortable. And obviously it's not a great thing for the institution. There is a civil war going on within the royal family over the treatment of Harry and Meghan Harry and Meghan want to move was not stated in this statement today a more progressive monarchy. But what does that mean. What does that mean for institution where the Queen is all about tradition? And you know I. I don't think the Queen will be happy with the statement today. A royal correspondent Jonny Dymond explains what it all means. They are talking about on. I use their words from their website at the moment a new working model. What is clear is they are going to spend a lot more time outside? Britain and they've made that clear in their regional. Same there north. America's what they talk about. We can probably read Canada into that. They just spent six weeks there. That clearly enjoyed themselves there and they we are no longer going to take part in. I think it's fair to say the institutional structure of the Royal Family. They have done for the last couple of years and and that includes the way that they deal with the media which is still the traditional media the print and broadcast media the UK. They've put out a statement again saying they will no longer do the traditional way of dealing with the media. It means I think every day activities that you might have thought that royals those days and that guy's the opening hospitals and all kinds of things they will no longer do as well. The big projects like the INVICTUS Games the Games. That Harry Harry setup for injured servicemen and women. I suspect he will still want to hang onto. He showed enormous enthusiasm for that. I'd be surprised if they do royal tour's anymore. I think that's very very unlikely. But we own waiting for detail and they say that more detail will come but they are not quitting the royal family but there Definitely changing the royal role. Tony Diamond. It was perhaps a step back from the brink fashionably late for his appointment with the media. Donald Trump emerged through the doors of the White House's grunt foyer the morning sunlight pouring in behind him then sticking to his ultra Q. He presented a message of have reassurance for Americans as well as a warning for Iran's leaders on some barely-veiled criticism for several of America's traditional allies. Iran appears appears to be standing down. which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world for far too long doc all the way back to nineteen seventy nine to be exact nations have tolerated? Iran's destructive and stabilizing behavior behavior in the Middle East and beyond those days are over Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism and their pursuit of nuclear. Your weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen. Mr Trump said new Americans Americans have been hurt in Tuesday night's Iranian missile strikes unjustified killing the Iranian General Qasim Suleimani saying his sons had been drenched in blood last week. We took decisive action to stop a ruthless terrorist from threatening American lives at my direction. The United States military eliminated the world's top cursed Kacem. Sola Manny as the the head of the cuts force. Salamone was personally responsible for some of the absolutely worst atrocities. President in trump also announced new economic sanctions on Iran. Our correspondent in Washington is Gary O'Donoghue. People had been looking for a de-escalation. Is that what they got. I think they've got that if that's what they were looking for. This was pretty measured tone throughout his speech. Yes of course there were threats and there were two. There was talk about these new sanctions. Sections of the Iran is pretty sanctioned as it is already and some calls on allies to do more in particular in terms of Iran's nuclear program program but you saw that as well as an appeal for peace an appeal to the Iranian people. And I think you get a sense when you watch and listen to the whole. The thing that the president isn't a bound to launch air strikes on Iran we'll see what Iran's response to that will be but at the moment. I think that the temperatures tick down. He might think that Iran has been sanctioned to the Hilton recent years. But what do we know about these new measures. Nothing at the moment. We'll wait to hear from the Treasury Department on those typically typically they would involve sanctioning extra bits of Iran's economy or most of that is sanctioned to the moment they may extend to other individuals in the regime. That's something anything that the Americans are very keen on stopping members of the regime from getting access to assets around the world stopping them from travelling and things that they do that quite lots so there may be some more of that but I think in many ways Iran has already taken a huge hit it has from sanctions and the economy's in Messer. Ms As as a result and what we heard today was aimed at the domestic audience. Do you think just to some extent I mean I think the president can present this as a victory at the moment he can. Certainly he's killed someone. He says. This was a terrorist whose hands with drenched in blood. There's really been so far and I say so far. Nothing in terms of particularly effective or damaging retaliation allegation. No American lives have been lost. We'll see if the hardliners in Iran. Stop it that's a lot of people think they weren't Gary O'Donoghue in Washington. A French courses announced that the former President Nicolas Sarkozy will stand trial later this year. For corruption and influence peddling Mr Sarkozy will be the first former leader here to face trial for corruption in France though another former President Jacques Chirac was convicted of embezzlement after leaving office. It's the latest twist in a series as of Criminal Charges Facing Mr Sarkozy Lucy Williamson reports from Paris in the tangled forest of charges investigations that has surrounded Nicolas Sarkozy over the past few years. Today's stock announcements could not be more clear on October. The Fifth Mr Sarkozy will become the first former president and to stand trial for corruption France. He's accused of using his lawyer to try and bribe a judge to leak information about another case he was involved volt in. This trial only came about because police. Investigators tapped the former president's phone as part of a separate inquiry into whether whether he accepted millions of euros from the then Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi for his first presidential campaign. The prosecution service earlier criticized. This is the repeated appeals made by his legal team which it said had paralyzed the investigation. And it's compared Mr Sarkozy's actions to those news of a season defender Lucy Williamson now. You may have heard in our earlier. PODCAST the first public comments made by the fugitive. Former head of Renault Nissan Carlos Gone who fled Tokyo for Lebanon last week since his arrest more than a year ago. He's not been allowed to make any public statements so on Wednesday his news conference conference in Beirut lasted more than two hours. He explained why he escaped. I did not escape justice. I fled in just this and persecution political persecution having in your more than four hundred days of inhuman treatment in the system designed to break me and unwilling to provide me even minimal justice. I was left with no other choice but to protect myself and my family accused of financial misconduct in Japan and Mr Golden vowed that he would clear his name but not in Japan where he argues. He can't get a fair trial speaking in Tokyo. The Japanese Justice Minister Muscle Michael Mori firmly rejected Mr Jones criticism. So they'll say talk us through Tom any coconut ninety Makita. He has been propagating both within Japan and internationally nationally false information on Japan's legal system and its practice got. This is absolutely intolerable. Japan's criminal justice system set accept appropriate procedures and is administered properly to clarify the truth while guaranteeing basic individual human rights. Ordinance bought but one topic remains the subject of intense curiosity. I asked our Asia Pacific regional editor Michael Bristow. If Mr Godwin had said anything about how oh you managed to escape no in a word yes. It's a dramatic escape last month. Gloom Japan to Lebanon Food Turkey suggestions that a hidden he didn't box went out in a private jet. People were desperate to find out. Reporters were desperate to find out exactly how he escaped and he said right at the very beginning of this long long press conference that it wasn't going to address that presumably just to protect those people who helped him he did however in the course of this long long press conference gave a little bit of an indication of the thinking behind his decision to flee Japan. He said it was the hardest decision he's ever made in his life life and he also said he came to a discussion of his lawyers about exactly the length of time it could be spending in Japan and this is what he had to say. The job I I still did not have the date for the first charge. Then they came with the idea about say. We put all the time Saint Fish for talked before we start the second so what I asked my daughter's about my saddle. We're going to be made five years Japan before I the judge he said at the top it was a plot against him by Nissan and executives and prosecutors in Japan. They colluded to to bring these charges against him. Those charges will under report in his income by tens of millions of dollars and misusing nissen funds amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars. DOLLAS he says the accusations against him were baseless and also he picks what he says a hold of the Japanese legal system. He was detained question. Eight hours a day without a lawyer without evidence presented against him The authorities stopped him. Senior wife could see letters few glass. That's all he could see from his wife fund even when he was released he could only see his wife in the presence of a lawyer so he was sort of like suggesting as many people said before that Japan has hostage the justice system in which people are held for. Indeterminate amount of time rearrested and essentially coerced into pleading guilty. In order to get a more lenient lenient sentences any reaction to all of this from Japan. Prosecutors have dismissed allegations against Japan's legal system. They said it's just a one sided testimony from callous go and he ought to comeback and if he really wants to clear his name he ought to face the accusations face the charges which were put to him and which now look as though is is going to escape because Lebanon does not have an extradition treaty with Japan's. It can be very hard to get him back to Japan to face. Charges Michael Bristow.

French police have told news agencies that the victim was a young African but for now now the airline has not provided further details officials said an investigation was underway but the incident is likely to raise questions over the security security in place at the applet in Abbey John Lewis Trust vandals in northeastern Greece have defaced raw cart dating back thousands. Thousands of years pitchers of animals and plants were scoured out with a wirebrush. Here's our Europe regional editor. Mike Sanders Greece is clearly not short of antiquities antiquities but rock. Art is relatively rare there. It's a kind of graffiti. Lines scored into the bare rock in the open air across a wild landscape. It's often quite quite difficult to spot. And as it's exposed to the elements the wildlife on the human population. It has eroded over time some of it dates back some five or six thousand years. Here's to the Early Bronze Age doctor Andrea Vanilla. Research Fellow at the University of South. Florida has done field studies in the area. He says the damage could be substantial essential. The Arthur is quite significant because there isn't Much Chirac God English and particularly for the ugly scenes the ones that probably dated between the Olympic Bronze Age they are fairly unique to Solely for the loss involved those seeing business disaster the arts what's been damaged is near the coastal city of Kavala. It was discovered in nineteen sixty six. It has never been given states protection. Some people feel that it inhibits inhibits their use of the surrounding land. One local archaeologists even has a theory that treasure hunters wanted to obliterate clues mentioned in an ancient legend. As talked via Nilo explains. There is a local history. That was He didn't pressure or in the area and the car would point to it. But I would to say that. The main reason for this happening is that they won't do in that land for only use on the fifty state and local authorities affected affected. Don't open very well that area there was no No economic benefit in having this doctor says that a balance has to be struck between preserving cultural heritage and making a living Mike Sanders pill to come on this podcast new information about how people in the only part of the British isles to come under Nazi control resisted occupation the best of friends. That's what Sheila von Der Lion says. Britain and the European Union will remain even after Brexit a partnership of zero trade tariffs and zero quotas. That's what the head of the European Commission says. She's aiming for but in a speech in London she. He warned that there could be no compromise on the integrity of the Single Market on the customs union without the free movement of people you cannot have the free movement movement of capital goods and services without a level playing field an environment labour taxation and state you cannot have the highest quality access to the world's largest single market the more divergent. There is the more distant the partnership chip will be then. She held talks with the British Prime Minister. Boris Johnson I asked our political correspondent. Rob Watson what had been discussed. They basically sat out with a PAT. The fundamental positions. You really heard the E. U.'s position. They're from ursuline. The line which is essentially look time is short for negotiating an agreement. Mister Johnson wants to before the end of the year and basically you the UK are not GonNa get as good a deal outside the EU than in it and Mr Johnson evidently repeated his government's position and that is that it wants to Sadler a free trade deal with the European Union by the end of this year. And that won't be any extensions in the UK won't follow the A US rules. What's the importance of seeing new compromise on the single market and customs union? I think it's hugely important. I mean I think this is the e U saying Mr Johnson and the UK in general. Look you're going to have to wake up. You'RE NOT GONNA be able to have your cake and eat it. You know if you want to have great access to the European Union's Markets you're going to have to follow our rules you'll have to align with with Something that Mr Johnson has ruled out in other words what the US around the wired about as sort of a UK off the Off The coast of Europe is sort of Singapore on times a competitor off the coast of Europe. Not playing by the rules but one thing as they would see it the same kind of access the sound and friendly but is the trust there. I think they I think they are friendly. Look I'm not sure that the word trust is the white right one really. I think that the dynamic has the same really Jonathan. Since Britain the moment Britain votes to leave the European Union with essentially Britain wanting all the things that light about its membership of the European European Union so great access to trade expertise lack kind of things. None of the things that didn't like hanging the money. Apply the rules of e court and being part of a political club and the EU as all said. Look I it just not going to have a good deal outside the club than in it and I think the next few months are going to be a WHO who gives ground. I mean clearly. They've states out by maximum possessions but over the next few months who is going to have to give way but that was rob Watson. Thousands of camels camel's in South Australia are to be shot dead from helicopters. As a result of extreme heat and drought a five day call started on Wednesday as is aboriginal communities in the region reported large groups of camels damaging towns and buildings. Some feral horses will also be killed. Camels aren't native tip to Australia. They were brought over by British settlers from India of Ghanistan on the Middle East in the nineteenth century. Estimates of their numbers vary but there are thought got to be hundreds of thousands of them across central parts of the country. Jonathan head reports the cost to animals from Australia's bushfires is still being calculated thousands of farm livestock and hundreds of millions of wild animals thought to have died now the authorities in South Australia. Say they need to kill ten thousand camel's in the remote northwest of the state. Australia has the world's largest population of wild camels introduced in the nineteenth century to help travel in the desert the long the drought of the past two decades is driving the animals to leave the desert and seek water on farms. Damaging crops taps even air conditioning units in the past cameras have been rounded up and sold for meat but the authorities say the population has now grown too large they plan to shoot the camels from helicopters and have promised almost they will be killed humanely. Jonathan head aid agencies are warning. The drought in the southern African country of Zambia has left more than two a two million people in need of food aid late rains. Last year came with the back of poor rains and a field harvest meaning many people mainly subsistence farmers armor of simply run out of food whilst drought does happen from time. To time in Zambia. It's very unusual to see such levels of suffering. This is the first time in fifteen fifteen years that the UN's World Food Program has been required to provide food aid there as Andrew. Harding reports from Zambia. Experts are blaming climate. A change that would that is you can hear is people scrambling to collect sacks of maize flour that have been laid out hundreds of them in the center of loosened Peuco village aid agencies. Who delivered the food a saying in? This part of Zambia is suffering from severe malnutrition levels that are one level below that which would trigger famine mornings so esther simone has just come over. She's sixty five and you're hearing like everyone else waiting for the food aid. When did you last eat UNOM? Maybe it is almost today's best. How you feeling very weak? What did you eat all the to flowers fruits? Do you remember it being this bad before in your life living. Thank you vs it. Is Our table nowhere to get food if you need those who Having money glad to get through this. Aw the local clinic here. Are Health workers set up a set of scales on a tree branch and he's wearing some of the local children weighing six pointer. Six points expensive. What should she be wearing for ten months? She's supposed to be at nine calligraphy she's two kilograms underway the the the nurse. Here is Nancy monthly. It's bad because this is one of the areas that doesn't have Mounir string. Yes yes okay. The non more would still be five cases but now the number has gone up. I think the rich twain tea or more. If I'm not mistaken one is it happening. There's no food people did manage to have is anything last year. Now Zambia who suffered from droughts in the past. It's something that happens in this part of Africa with concern is the drought getting move severe less predictable and much more to cope with and the reason for that is climate change Alan. The Lander is a program for the World Food Programme number one the rain patterns of actually change over the number of yes in the last fifteen years the effective. The rent's season October. As we speak now the effective start of the rents is mid December. The second part is the distribution of the renfrew itself secular extremely erratic. Now it's one place ten kilometers nothing so the weather becoming more unpredictable and more extreme. That's not just business as usual. That's climate change and now there's also an element of the human interest kind of accessible. There's been a lot of frustration going on okay which which is actually a contribution to the spitting on the changes so that is actually driving the plan pretend aspects as well people well are now starting to take the food aid back to their homes dragging big bags putting smaller ones on their heads. We're told US enough for about at eighteen hundred people to last month but this is a crisis that many people believe is going to last for quite some time I can see big black clouds here. there has been some rain but not enough yet and the concern is that there are at least three months before the crops are going to be ready in the fields to harvest and so a lot of people could still be very hungry for quite some time that report from Andrew Harding. In Britain. The government has called on the English Football Association to review its decision to sell broadcast rights to the FA Cup the third party to the bet three six five gambling website. The FA Cup is the oldest annual NOCCO competition in the football world. The Government Minister in charge of sport. Nicky Morgan can wants to see the contract terminated. My colleague Sarah Montague asked Mark polygraphs the former chief executive of the Football Association and Current Chairman of League Guan Side Tranmere Rovers for his views. I think most people nowadays would accept that this is not something that's in the football desperately wants to get involved but actually football does have light longstanding aquatic deep relationship with the gambling community. I think from the FAA's perspective It it's inconsistent with the stunts now on mental health excetera on the the linkages between mental health and gambling. All there for everybody to see so. I think it's a function of the timing of this. I think that some could actually redress rescued straight away at the moment Probably not because of primitive contract I would imagine the FAA's contract with all Mj high-energy as a contract. BET FY six five. So it's one droplet straight away is going. That'd be quite difficult so I think the timing of this is in fortunate throw them But going forward almost certainly they will not want to include in their sponsorships with a clubhouse we we have but demographic in book and had with some some of the poorest areas of the country and we've been approached despite all financial difficulties over the last few years we've been approached by bashing companies. Should we simply said it was something for us not to do whilst the Game May may be involved in clubs have to make their own decisions to get involved in for us. We decided against against it. We'll see can I ask why because there will be people say look. He's not able to watch. This match is because bet three six five a load of money into it and therefore I can watch it and yes I may they have on the side of my screen opportunity to bet on it But that's a price worth paying. What do you say I can only speak bake for ourselves on this? And and we're proud to say where we're family club and it's rooted in the community and I think it's it's well established linkage between gambling. The problems on the problems that makes for a community itself in terms of breakdown of marriages and families and so forth and so on and so it was purely a personal decision by this club to do that to to distance itself and if the found I think the founders realized that they understand they don't need to have to have that by the side of the screen. I just think it's it's commit in. Saudi inconsistency full somebody to To make a payment whether it's to make a bachelors just to make access to the opportunity to make back on something that we know that we really have to To look after I think that the phrase that you know when the fun stops star is is Joel well and good for the patching communities say that but the reality is if the fun stops your wealth past that point. That's mark polyester former chief executive of the Football Association patient in England. The channel islands lie between Britain and France. No new information which had previously been shut away for decades has been casting light on the levels levels of defiance they're under Nazi occupation during the Second World War the islands of Jersey and Guernsey were invaded by Hitler forces in nineteen forty and undocumented for five years. They're the only parts of the British isles to come under German rule in the war. David Lewis has the details. The nudie released fire was bring to light some of the most extrordinary acts of defiance from ordinary islanders. Seventy five years after the end of occupation among the crimes that Nazis clamped down on with a daubing V for victory. Victory signs listening to illegal radio broadcasts and the spreading of Anti German propaganda sentences varied two of the youngest prisoners school goes Kathleen in Duckworth and fourteen year old barrel wiccans were both convicted of unspecified political offenses and held for a night in custody. Philip George Ozark was found. Guilty of unauthorized authorize weapon possession and sentenced to five years forced labour in France and Germany. He was only released at the end of the war. Another Islander Louisa Gould. Who'd been found guilty? Not of hiding a Soviet prisoner of war on the island was sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp outside of Berlin from West. You never returned a register kept by the Nazis at the island's prison contain the names of five hundred and six individuals who committed political crimes. Some of those charged were sentenced by German troop courts specially established in jazzy during the occupation. To try people for crimes committed against the Germans.

Metro Cody as weekly mental health put cost my name's Yvette. And I'm an and this Twitter, Mikey van Eyck. She's an author and a new mom. She's written a lovely book called remember this when you're sad. So we're going to be shutting to her about that. But also, we're going to be shutting to a lot about sort of pregnancy giving birth and motherhood. This is firefighter Raphael. Poor yet for firehouse subs.

Every purchase tell you, sir. Buzzfeed, and I'd write mental health schools that on started writing about my own pity depressions have home exactly in teeing. What's for the people? And then it just kind of became apparently had a bit more of a story to tell the these fossils in touch with agent. He convinced me to to write my story down in its entirety. Yeah. How about what I really like about? It is you lots of listings in there, which breaks it down on. I think the reason I find it very helpful is because I've bipolar disorder. When you have things like depression is quite hard to to read big lumps of texts. I find even the actor reading can be quite difficult. So you do have some lumps of texts. That's fine. That's to the new. To have a little lists. Yeah. So yes, remember this? When your side, did, you know from the start that that was kind of approach he wants to have in terms of the style. And I think so I didn't want I wanted to write about my own experiences, but not make it just to sad and say not make about maybe because I'm not a famous person or a therapist. So that will join narrowly honest, my teenage years reading other people's memos. You know, like the dock the better like drug, addiction and prostitution legend love this kind of books. Ultimately feeding even to the Mossad. So I wanted to be an element of like help and niece fullness in it unless whether lists came in. So the I could to fight peer or write it down or doubts on the bedrolls and kind of. Yeah. Help them that way. Yeah. Absolutely. It says it also very sort of simple things. Like, I said with the depression things he's experienced that yourself ams of both of us. And yeah, it really does help doesn't it to just have lists up yourself or listen books. Lightness to kind of remind you things. That could make you happier, which I guess is the whole thing got inspiration for the yet. Definitely you need to about your diagnosis Kleiner that something that you kind of covering your book. It was not easy. How did you diagnose cog out? What was he will kind of paused to the diagnosis? I was diagnosed with depression in general anxiety disorder at Uni of the longest time. I thought I was something physically wrong with me. So I'd go in for awesome. Check for men jaundiced eye bts, had a brain tumor. When point I didn't really know anything about things icy. So that was kind of when the booth such rolling for me in terms of like, of course, something mental going on had therapy and medication for it. And then serve in my early twenties. The anxiety and depression to Scott worse in the episodes became more intense and longer, and I thought there was something else that have that play an off to to a flight the six or seven time a crisis team, they put me through his critic assessment. And I thought I had. Bipolar disorder. They decided that I didn't. And then they thought maybe I did. And then I went back and forth between with these tips. Amid in the meantime, kind of doing my own research, and the more I read about woodland personalities and more read about the case studies Morris, like the sounds really familiar to me, and I can even the job and was super code and medical. I just felt like in this feels like my story. So when I had another assessment, I thought look, I think this is something that I have and within five minutes there yet that makes it so I kind of have to steer it sort of myself was the frustration restraint. It was like I felt like I had to jump through a lot of hoops. And like, you know, every assessment requires like six minutes waiting list is like a really long time. But the payoff from getting the right diagnosis like far outweigh the frustration of anyting up to it. Yeah. And then what was the treatment? Once you had that diagnosis. So I saw a therapist who had more specific experience people with APD. And then I was on various other waiting lists for the group therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy, which people BBDO toge- recommend it. But I just fell three either moved to different boroughs. So then I went back down on the waiting list. So I never actually go that access to that care, but the therapist Radi helped, and I followed support online slay joined various Facebook groups as part of like an app life found through read it like I just found online support. So that that was really good for me as well. You online persons. How have you found the internet helpful beyond kind of finding apps? All information. Have you found like the community aspect hopeful yet? Definitely I think when I was when I was a teenager like teenage suction to the pro Ana premier stuff phone online three I think, it was live know at the time inside Gaza, and I spent a lot of my teenage years with other women online trying to lose way how sharing tips on how to pick up your dinner, and is like super destructive. So kind of interesting that I was able to find actually a productive community and even out of the pro Ana friendships, I made a couple of women who would talk for longer and talk less about eating disorder more about like books. We liked music because then I got really into like VM apple when the monkeys and kind of shaped love who I was as teenager in getting into my twenties. So I kind of found my people, and then I think face because a lot of negative aspects too. Of it. But I think three groups I found a kindred spirit. Specially recently become a mum. So I found most of mums he will say kind of experience mental health problems, and how we kind of navigate motherhood, and and pregnancy also suggest laying will this stuff was going on a heads. I definitely wanted to talk about motherhood, Yuccas grit. If it, and I do not have kids, I have a cat about the same thing note qui-. You too. So having a baby. Yeah. It's crazy. What was that? Like feel mental health. Like, what are you worried about that when he decided to have a child? Yeah. It was super Hillary. And I think it came at an interesting yet a wit time because I feel my mental health on the decline, and I could feel that I was potentially gonna go off the rails again conveyor into more like self destruction. And then I found out I was pregnant as shit. And there's actually the biggest lifeline mix it meant that I had to get my shit together because I needed to keep maybe alive and to keep myself, well and healthy, and I needed to like access the help and get help not vacate for yourself in the way that I don't think I would have done if I hadn't been pregnant and gives you a notch. You even if you don't care about yourself. You have to care about some excellently. Yeah. Definitely what would the particular challenges around pregnancy itself? And yet she having a baby in terms of mental health because I'm sure there's loads in terms of maybe medication. But also, you know, whole sleepless nights, all kinds of ways would change your rear. There's loads. I think. Yeah. Initially with medication. I assumed I'd have to someone's teleprompter, quite high dosage, and I assume that I'd have to go with them on the GP recommended. The I go down a couple levels, a new ready just doing it. Once it really best up, my brain chemistry, and the midwife was like way more important that you a healthy, and we can keep you in balance than like, the very tiny risk that it will go into your baby Oku cause any problems after birth said that just it. Yeah. It just became more important. I look after myself. I think physically your body gates resigned, many changes when you're pregnant, and you put sort of doesn't become Lynch doesn't become us says a humans of taking pot another team taking part in it. But people say like comment on your body. More say, it would be like, oh, but you look so tiny still, and I know that's like a nice thing. But that would spiral like a whole anxiety things. I'd be like, oh, no minority saying enough. Like, I'm not going to be mad mama's baby died at all. It just feels whole thing that new say like normally, you shouldn't really comment people's bodies. Anyway. So it's bit wit that some colleagues begging to ages. It's like, oh, you look too small like that. Is wit me to that was like a bit of an adjustment. A lot of the scans a very like medical and clinical, and you'll expect it or I felt I was expected to look at Scott and be like, well, there's baby. An instead I just feel like, oh, this is so weird. And my body is mine, and I'm I don't feel a connection to what I'm seeing on screen. I feel like that is an inside me to leave the appointments feeding really down like I hadn't experienced over. These other women are experiencing bashing hindsight. Talking to the people at that's very common reaction, and it's hard in this fake liquid environment to have this big emotional reaction because it's just like snow quite setting. Yeah. I'm very common e you see these films these scenes in films. Don't you ever wanted to seeing the scanner gets excited? I'm sure for lots of home, then they just. I mean when when friends showed me DAT pages on looks a bit like a potato, but I'm allowed me because I'm a friend. Not outside of anyway. That's maybe I'm thinking. Okay. Yeah. I think it's understandable. You might not yet be connect with it. Have you found things since oh how old sue baby? Now. She's so be six months and few days. Hobby found to hold, but I will how did you find giving birth because you've got a section in the book, which is a modes. Yeah. Basically being sued Boston will. Yeah. Because everyone must be scared to give birth. I don't know. How people manages honest yet it Stephanie the anxiety leading up to it is is a lot. But genuinely might entire like both experience was amazing. And I do it again without even having a child come out like it was so great like unom, no, even lying or exaggerating. It was. I think I saw I put a lot of. And I'm not saying that it's how much work you put into it. Because a lot of it is luck. And like, I was really really lucky that everything went super smoothly on the vacations, but I did most of my already labor a home. My we'll despite when I was in a cafe with my friend, and I was like bitching about an ex boyfriend. And then suddenly spikes that is helpful chip if in case someone speed along, and then I went home and let contractions Radi hut. Like, there's just no way about it. They just suck like feels like your spine is like being ripped into. But with each contraction like it goes up, and then it goes down again. So, you know, you're always going to get like a little bit of a break. And then the midwest came up to to check may yet things hunt release sped along so just kind of ocean eating between light lying in bed. Lying in the boss of like hosing myself down with water late the end of the Free Willy when transporting him into the ocean. And then just like chucking water on him. That's kind of me in the buff. Like like, my boyfriend was running around like Chuck. Mottram may getting crisps whatever and than the midwest came into check may again, and it's Sunday dilates to six centimeters, which was like a little. And then I was in a new baron went to hospital had lays of Gasunie, which was amazing. I was really nervous about taking drugs note because I was against it. Because I was worried about how it would affect my anxiety. And the when they were saying like, oh, it's like you retreat into head is like why did enough I won't last. But actually it was legit. It was so great. I was I this is fun tastic. And I was like hooked onto this like gas canister unless you blood around it because I was just going at so hard. I was just like someone like last real like, I don't want won't boy will war, and then I had a really easy going water birth. Yeah. Like it her, but it wasn't like anything I can manage and then astroid baby when she was born in it definitely wasn't that thing that they say in the movies where you feel as instinct connection I felt like. I was being introduced to a famous person six someone I'd been thinking about for reading on time. And then I su- hunters like oh my God. It's you girl. Hey, it's just like a really surreal. It was a necessarily like oh. And now, I become a mother. It was just like, oh, this is crazy. But in a really good way, you describe it in a way that sounds appealing. But I'm still just thinking pain. Yeah. Yeah. It does hot. But it's it's nothing that you can't handle widdly. I had this with system my neck during pregnancy that I had to get removed on that was more painful than labor like it was this like annoying little sisters servic euless. But that whole experience was like more traumatic for me than buff. Like, I think I just you know, really, I put a lot of work in into trusting my body, which is only like don't normally do like, I'm someone when I'm walking down the street, and I trip it sets off this big reaction in my head. Like, oh, well, I almost died. So I was really nervous about having to trust my body that much. But I had a really great perinatal counselor specialized in that. And I talked about how I was scared is going to dissociate not present. And that may be a be a bit like in the get-out when they like stuck in the the blackness I would be stuck in my head forever. But that didn't happen. I was like seeped apprentice buying so everybody was like the Mr. bike thing and that didn't happen. And I think that is because I I worked really hard at like being them and today somehow happened was really lucky. Do you? Remember how you feeling mentally while giving birth nor is there any kind of fear or worry about what was happening. What you completely enjoying Gafsa? Yeah. It was definitely enjoying. I was retreating into my head law, but sort of in like, a radiate sort of healthy way when it like very minimal people that there's only my boyfriend in the midwife unluckily. I didn't have any complications. That was fine. An a bit like civic when a cat's a cat is in pain. They kind of go by themselves, and they just wanna like deal with themselves. That's kind of how I as bit. Like, just leave me alone for a bed. I'm just gonna handle this his and you become very like women's like an animal like to push the baby out you have to Radi like bed down and like make sounds that. You'll like will crazy, but it's kind of freeing like when do you ever get do that unless you're gonna a the Costa is read that you get to be that sort of like basic animal type persons? That's quite about maybe afterwards. And how basically her arriving has affected your mental health now because I think that's the thing that would scare made the idea of getting pregnant and giving birth guys may, but also the idea of than have missile person to look when you're also trying to look after your own mental health year yet. It's it's crazy. It's amazing. But it's crazy am I think a big part of my bootleg disorders like fundamentally idea believe that I'm unlovable pus. And that nobody initiate have to love me suss. Just. Lake and then you have a baby. And like a baby's is gonna love that mother because they have to to survive. And so, you know, behold beholding to be like, oh like she's really like looking where you on the room. And she's like you have this amazing connection me. Like choose does not what's she's not doing that. Like, I couldn't wrap my head around. The fact that I have someone who loves me unconditionally because relationships there is love, and I left my boyfriend I appeal as me, but you can still test it and push those boundaries and push people away. It's really ought to that with a baby because they just need you like they need you to feed they need to let them keep the womb. And so that was kind of a really good. I for me that I am is possible to love me, and I'm capable of loving someone unconditionally I'm capable of doing that. And it's freebie scary. But that it's it's a good thing. And she is just like really like made me like show up for myself. Like, you can't decide to wake up. And be like ours to be today. Like you have to wake up and do it every day, and that's really tiring. But it's really good discipline for me. I think with my mental health sometimes being a bit lazy. I haven't looked off to myself and I've chosen to binge drink do drugs or have sex people shouldn't have sex with. And you really can't do that. When you baby. I mean, it's a good thing. So we're going to be taken out on town. She's like made me show up for myself in a way. I did you know anyone else can really selling babies after Lagoda. I'm slut. Probaby just do it. Thinking about having another baby. I think. Yeah. I mean, I've always said the I would love like a football team of babies because I just I just love kids. And I was a very lonely kid, and I didn't have a very stable chatted. And I've voiced I wanna give like a million kids the most stable life. They can ever have. And if a kid is like, oh, my life is so boring. But yes, I did a good thing needs to be pulled. And so in in my head. I would, you know be living on like Allama farm and be having these babies, but realistic view, I think one I probably couldn't afford to have a kid right now. And I would love to just have as much time as possible with with Astro even thinking about another kid. I think my boyfriend would crazy. I was like I'm pregnant again, he does he know about your plans to have a million children. He does and like many of my my whims. As he likes lofts offers like a thing that probably what happened like when this people like every day. I want a new career like I made someone like just looking. In hair as I go. They should definitely be Jemma still. I should miss critic should be a security guard. Like, I always want everything. And so I think he thinks it's one of my wins. But a g the jet when a lot of treadmill. Yeah. Maybe don't ability. They don't us garage ruling, Donna. Do you feel like in the immediate week softwoods? Because I I think one of my consented beam post-natal depression, DEA notice any kind of dip you'll mood or change in your symptoms mental state. I think it helped us see for prepared like almost assumed the I would get it. And where I give gave birth that was opposite the mood. Sage everyday good. Mental health would Meigs every day would be like comment check ins to mostly like, I just assume that that's where I'd guy and because of that I did make sure I had lights additional support. So I had midwives who came more frequently than they would the people I had a community nece who checks in with me and how I'm blending with the baby and I had a intervention health visitor. He comes more often than no health fister. Would as well a nominee you go to them. But she would come to you. So I didn't really have to leave the house and have thanks. I about how gonna get on the bus. I'm gonna get in cheap. They just came to me that was a massive help an it's it's freeing in a way. It's red in your life. Something we'll focus you so much like the only thing matches keeping this tiny human alive. And so, you know, the dishes can way, you know, you can't think about work think about Twitter followers. Ooh that the that matters is just keeping someone alive and override sleep. Even looking after yourself like my mom stayed with us the first two weeks, and she'd remind me to go have a nap. And I was like, oh, no. But I wanna like hang out with Westridge was like it's not going to remember like just go sleep in cash, Alex you stink. And so that was really helpful to kind of remind myself self care aspect and having my every day. I'd make sure I would have like a half now off to myself, and that really helped me reconnect with my body because it what is hijacked by this person. And then you know after you give birth. I remember locate myself in the mirror and being late. This body doesn't feel like mine it's like is going through something really intense. You know, like blame everywhere is slow MS like a balloon, thus just been deflated. At it's just gonna shriveled at. It's like this is strange as having that like buff time kind of maybe look at my board years of peace it back together like in my brain. So that I could like reconnect everything's is literally kind of bost apart. But it was great. But. Untested. How do you make sure that you are looking after yourself? And also, I think I'm just voicing my own could leave having children. Oh, my word be getting hyper focused on the baby. Yeah. Coming so anxious about that the just being constantly reflect what if this happens this here, do you find the and how do you make sure it doesn't become overwhelming? But yet, it's it is hard. And I think a lot of people say like, oh, trust your mom instinct, a friend of of like American people in Facebook's. I wanted to things always talk about mom. Thanks. And then yet it it's it's hard because when they say like oh trust yoga. I'm night will be really have a gut instinct so like shit. I go hostal is is Russia. K should I do this should of this? And that is a big worry. Especially in the beginning. There is always something wrong with babies like weather's really serious face serious. They kept thinking that Astor had joined us. So we kept having to get together Jones level. Interns that she was fine. But it's very common there. You know, they just wanna get you get your baby checked out and that was Radi stressful. But as they grow older on their move robust, there's less of that health anxiety around to Eben, you can ease up a little bit. But it's it's a work in progress. Like I had to have they've restaurant to Alex at Victoria station because it's rush hour. I made him take a picture of Astro every part of the journey. So my phone is just street. She's and that's sort of. How is that's like compromise d this I'm gonna have to be without her. Yes, I'm gonna have to offer million pitches. But that's fine. That's gonna get through it. So you just have to compromise a little bit undisposed as well. Like, you written this lovely book. What are your plans next in terms of mental health kind of stuff in terms of the book? Do you feel like you're done with that? Oh, yeah. Venus can you that because you always get the baby to the cost for the moment? Instead of having any mother. Just like two peas. Will they smoke? You'll them. You can't even know. She has to watch me do everything. I'm sorry is just how how it goes. Even what I do wonder about them. Do they have to come into the style with you and everything you just yet leave her on the floor and just sort of like talked to her as I'm showering, the sliders freely relentless, but it's you know, it's fun when they're sixteen you'd be like you watch me do. Yeah. In terms of of writing more. I've I really want to another back. I wanna to be about myself. I think I say like I'm twenty nine th always like seventy then yes, you'll have had enough life for like another part too. But like, I just haven't I've told pretty much there Saito, and I'm not I haven't been a month long enough to like right among book. So I would love to write fiction, and I'm working on a story by HUD about a radio program about often and mental health wards. I've had some experience with the oldest male staff does power of abuse of the youngest of teenage patients and said that's a story like IBM to explore within fiction rather than rice think nonfiction. But I've been currently writing in two minute intervals to take ten years if that. Yeah. I think it will be quickly. Not from what I've heard from other sort of that. When you do have a baby you have this weird thing where like yes, initially already busy. But then when you do something get some free times you get loads of stuff done in the free time. And then you back on when you didn't have a baby unit. Dislike what has been all that time watching that fix? I'm a do on day. Yes. I'm sure we'll get them the fiction book out coup. Thank you.

Rj wouldn't absolute pleasure. It is to welcome you to the show. Thank you for being this week's guest expert and mentor. Thank you for having me here. It's really an honor and a pleasure. Today it's a special on for me to invite a fiction also to this podcast because as you know. Focus primarily on nonfiction and building an author marketing platform, but you recently were kind enough to share your wisdom on how to market books while also being a fulltime writer. A great secretary. Very good segue. Yes, well the thing I say anytime I. do any kinds of speaking and speaking to writers I say to the honest truth, which I am a student like you I am constantly learning, and with the way book marketing has changed and his changing all around us every month. It's a little bit different. You constantly have to stay a student so that that is the first thing I recommend. Anybody is remember your student. Don't stop learning. Marketing whether you're fiction or nonfiction, author is critical, and I know you have a certain philosophy why writers should probably study marketing rather than just studying writing talk to us about that, you know it's very interesting. Because my wife actually went to college and got a business degree, but the marketing she learned back then. This was back in the seventies. Maybe the eighties is very different from. From the marketing now approaching people higher, you do I mean no one back then could see social marketing and going onto facebook and twitter, and all these social media places that has opened up tremendous doorways. The important thing with any kind of marketing is try to make it sincere. You know if you just come out and say I wrote a book. It's great you got rid it. Better to share read a page of the book on social media or something like that. Let the people see your love of what you create and sell that love I mean. That's what I've done. As an entertainer is I, love performing, and then I didn't sell them on specific things that I did, I sold them on the love. Avoid I do and that's how I was able to successfully work for forty five years doing magic in performing. And that brings up a really important point, and that is an passion that you have your own work. Many authors say to me well. Would you mock it the book for me? Or who can I get to market it and I said you know the best person to mock it. The book is You yourself because Lily that passion, nobody else can have that passion for your baby and one of the things you should learn is the famed elevator speech. You should be able to tell what a book is about in two lines and. And less than thirty seconds you should be able to tell somebody exactly what the book is about and what's exciting about it, and that's good when you get to the point of making the description and things, which as we go on, it's one of the most important marketing things you do. You should have that ability off the top of your head to say exactly, and you can practice it. I mean. I'm not above writing out stuff and practicing them so that if somebody asks me, I'm prepared. That's good technique to use. and. That's a critical one because you're absolutely right. Because when authors come to me, the first question I asked is tell me about your book, and it could be five ten fifteen minutes later and this old, telling me about the book and I'm like you know that's a little bit too long. We need to sentences of the right these but I. think that's a really hard exercise to do is to condense your book into those two sentences. Do you have any techniques to help us with that? Always think of what the headline is I. Just finished a book called the vanishing. She is going to be coming out next month or so probably in July at some point. But it's a new novel. The to sentence thing here would be to promote what would get somebody's interest than the number. One thing I would say is someone who lives in the Pine Barrens in New Jersey and what if the Jersey Devil or real I kind of just leave it at that that makes them ask what what do you mean? What if the Jersey Devil Israel? It's just well. That's specific and there's a NYPD detective who people are vanishing from her hometown and she wants to find out why. So those are the two cents is basically I would actually put them the other order I'd say a retired near excited detective has people vanishing her hometown. She wants to find out why and could the Jersey Devil be real. And there you've got two sentences that make everyone go. Oh okay, that's an interesting idea and that's what you want to promote you. WanNa get people interested in your concept before they bread a word of what you've written. You mentioned the headline. It's funny. 'cause literally be for you and I got on the line together I was reading a book by Jim Edwards about copywriting secrets, and he said the most important part of your copy is headline, said eighty percent of people often don't go further than reading the headline, because the headline leads to the next Pau copy, which is of the explaining what you book is about or what anythings about in your sales, letter and us so getting somebody intrigued, and obviously with a fiction book is very different from a nonfiction, but it still important to hone in on. What is the key takeaway? What is somebody wanting to get out of this and tuning into the emotion? And bringing out that and obviously horror. Yes, there's a lot of emotion in her. We have technique and for people who are looking to do their own descriptions. I break it down. This I've seen this done a little differently sometimes, but it breaks down the way I put it his Ada Aida. Is You know a I? A these are the four things you need for a description. The first one is a the first is attention. You need that headline to get their attention. than the I is interest, so that's when you start to tell the story with a couple of paragraphs probably short paragraphs you increased that interest. Then you hit them with desire. Desire is where we we say something you know. It's a riveting novel like Courageous Female Protagonists, an historic native American legends you know, that's where we create the desire, and the final thing is action every book. Book description needs an action line like by the vanishing for US spine tingling. Woodland fright tonight. You know you have to have that final action. This is what I want to do. You've read my description. The final line is this is what I want you to do. It's a very good formula getting attention, interest, desire and action. You focus in on what every good book description needs. I know that that is a fabulous formula that's been used over and over again in any kind of. Copy writing and yes listeners. If you take that and in heaven, never it is a nonfiction, and you look at those different headlines. They attention the interest czar in the action. What could you put in those spaces? And maybe it's a couple of words, and you could string that together and make up something that would be compelling for people to want to read what you have to offer because you've got a message. Everybody's got. Got A message. I mean Agyei. You've got a message in your book or Yanked Yep very much. My books are designed to be entertainment. I'm an entertainer. I'm now using the written word to entertain instead of me up on a stage. It's got more than that. It's the thing about fiction is. You can end the situation in a way that you would like it to and I'm not necessarily saying it should always happy ending. But I'm a very big fan of Dean Koontz on one of the things Mr. cones does in his writing. Is He makes you? Grateful for the human existence it at applets you within this story where some very bad things happen to some very nice people with a message like that a fiction is a really good way to do it. The three most important things for any book whether it's fiction and nonfiction besides description description is one of those three your cover. Very important people do judge a book by its cover, and the third thing is your keywords and a lot of people neglect that not only should you create a good key words for your book, but if you can insert them into the description, a little bit that also helps people find your work. That you talked about the cover and the importance of the Kava and I know that one of the things that I say to authors. You have to be a hundred ten, one hundred and twenty percent in love with that book cover, because if you're not if there's any part of that book, cover you not happy with. It's going to psychologically without you even realizing it, it's going to affect your sales because you're not as proud of it as you would be if I save just. Goo Goo. Gaga over. And one of the things I always recommend that again. This is the school of doing the hard way is know what your genres you know whether it's nonfiction or fiction. No, what you're. Sean is I. Mean You know with The vanishing I know it's a Har- novel I. Know What It is, so go look at. The horror bestsellers on Amazon. Look at their covers. Look at the fonts they use look at how it's presented because you'll quickly see the flaws in your own cover. If you're looking at what's selling number, one and number, two and I may not always agree with some of the top sellers, but I always learn something looking at them very important to do that and also reading the descriptions that these top sellers uses very very important, so you can get a real feel as to what is selling in your Genera. And that doesn't matter which genre. It is I think that's a crime rate. Formula is to go into Amazon. Look at what is selling and take the best of the best I'm doing that all the time. Yes, is great and obviously key words essential knowing what those are and using them. All J you mentioned the school of hard knocks. Let's go into that. A little saw the tool to as about some of those haunt notes. I know that you've had a lot of trial an era. To us a little bit about those things that all authors could avoid era being the bigger of the trial part when I I wanted to start publishing I found day. you know I was going to publish, but I found a person who did marketing in a hired them for those first two books and spent a great deal of money. Now on the plus side they did get me in touch with the designer. Use for my covers. The same designer been using all the time 'cause. She's just brilliant and she's very reasonable. A lot of what they did really did not help the book at all and cost a lot of money. I mean they did get some reviewers and things, but now there are so many places you can get reviewers. There's so many ways to get people, and of course what I do now is I- organically. Launch, I send out to my mailing list. I have a mailing list now. That's over five thousand and I have to I have a regular maleness and a VIP list. The IP lists are these people really like my work and I put out an email that says we you join my launch team if you do I'm GonNa want you to Alipur Review I'm GonNa Watch to pose it on social media I'm GonNa. Want you to so I. Tell Them Upfront what I'm. GonNa ask of them. And then I sti- give them the pitch I will send you an advanced reader copy and I do follow up I do follow up email every week or twice a week before the launch and get really wrapped, and then the day of the launch I. Send them a free book directly from Amazon, because sometimes her tiny little changes between the advance reader copy in the final then accounts is verified sale, even with me gifting the book and tell them you gotta put in the review. I received a free book in exchange for an honest review. It's been very good. It's been building a great deal. My last book launch. I got fourteen reviews within the first couple of days from that group. Things like that are little things you can do, and you should do them yourself. Because paying somebody a lot of money to do. It sometimes doesn't work out the way you think. And said there's little things that can make a big difference. You mentioned reviews and I was. Just GonNa say talk to us about how you get reviews, because that is definitely a question, I get over and over again. How do we get reviews? The book that you've given us one way is that you got raving fans ready. Who if you tell them to jump I? Think they would jump. You might be IP group. They have bought repeated copies of books. They signed up for the IP list which you can only do from the ad and the front and back of the book, but makes it a very specific way to do it. There's a second technique you WANNA build an email list first of all. Get an e mail carrier like us. which very pleased with very easy to use, but you have a way to sign up for that, and they can sign up on my website or in the front and back of my book. I have an ad for a free giveaway novella. Now the reason you put an ad in the front of because a lot of people put an ad in the back of the book, but they don't put it on the front book. The reason you do that is when somebody goes online and his looking at your book at the peak inside on Amazon. They see the ad and then they go. Why don't I get the Free Book First? And then they get the free book and then decide Okay I. Like this guy. I'm going buy more of his books, but that's a really good way to get them. I do recommend having free collection of stories of Free Novella that can give away and offered on your website and the new thing I'm adding now. Is I'm creating audio books that are give away their short their novellas, but it's a two hour audio book that you can download from my website through book funnel which I'm also a big fan of that will get people to buy the audio books that I sell through audible on Amazon. That's really good technique signing up for something like book funnel. That would be the third thing I would. Would recommend and there's also story origin which has story origin, APP, which is free, so if you do it now, it's free, but the whole point of a book funnel is they do promotions multi off the promotions that you can sign up for? And if you have a giveaway novella, you can get people to sign up for your mailing list by just giving away the novella as part of promotions with other authors, and the nice part of that is you do a promotion with sixty other authors and you have sixty people sending out things. That have your book listed in them? It's a very good technique for building. I think since the beginning of this year I added a thousand people to my mailing list more than that at this point I'd say about fourteen fifteen hundred since January. Just with promotions I've been doing on book. Funnel the whole idea of that of your mail list to end just generating a list that you can use to market is fall more effective and far more powerful than relying on your facebook or linked tin or any other of the social media platforms. Because I always say people have been listening to. My cousin will think I'm like a stuck record, but if Something happens Zozo media and when? You lose all those fans and followers. Unless of course you'd be able to transfer them over to your website by giving them something way now you may not have a Nobel, but you could a checklist. You cut a special report. You can have a little mini e book. You could have tips. People love stuff that's of value, and it could be a high value to them, but easy and inexpensive to produce from you. And also when you have a non-fiction book since I do WanNa include the nonfiction people in this. Doing a say a self help book. If you can have some of the techniques, you're going to go into to elaborate explanation of further down in the book you sal, giving away some of those techniques in a little report or novella that you can give to people. It's a very good thing, and it creates the interest in well now. I want to get the book. I'M GONNA learn all of these techniques. It's a very good thing with fiction. I mean I have three giveaways right now. One is a collection of horror stories which I've written over the years. One is a Prequel to my in the mind series before the first book, so they read that free one. Hopefully they're going to want to start reading the series and the third one is sort of in the middle of the series, and it was just something I made for people who were reading the series, and enjoying it I just wanted to give them a little extra something. That extra something, and I know those some of those are concerned about giving stuff away because they save I give it away. They're not going to buy. The book called the Audio Books Oh i. say give it away I. Mean the top people in this business and I had somebody likes of Jay Baer and go listen to his podcast people if you haven't already. Already and he'll say give it away. Give it away. Give it away. They GONNA come back because if you give stuff away and like if you can give this annual way, wow, what am I going to get? If I pay for it last month? I did a giveaway with three books and anytime. You're doing tree book promotion I'm I think very highly free books. Where I gave away the first three books of the in the mind series, because I was releasing the Ninth Book I had a box set. That was only available on Amazon. which is good because page counts I mean. That's like twelve hundred page trilogy I had so many people well. I got a bunch of new reviews from people who read the trilogy and liked it and the sales of the fourth book when way up, because the people I mean. Mean we gave away over two thousand copies of the trilogy through. Amazon, my sales for the fourth book would way up because people read the three books for free, and they were like okay may get the fourth one and continue and I'm seeing sales down the line as people are reading the books and and going through them, which is the point of having a long term series is you want people to be interested in excited about the next book? That can work for the nonfiction. As well as fiction is having a trilogy having more than one book because it, they like you the first time around. They GonNa like you the second time around, and hopefully the third and ongoing I, just WanNa. Throw this in I. Don't know who said this, but it was this. The way to sell more books is to write more books to sell. And I've seen sales increased as I have more product as I am putting out more books I see more sales and I think that is so true. If you want to sell more books, create more books and people will buy them. Yeah. I think that's a lot of truth. Lot of wisdom in that. Jay If our listeners wanted to get hold of you and find out moral. Read some of your books. What's the best way for them to do that? The best way is on my website, which is www RJ LEWIS DOT com, but it's spelled A. R. J. A. Y. It's the phonetic of RJ, and the reason for that is there was already in our period J. Period Lewis who went out and became a bestseller before I started publishing. I decided to go with the A. R.. R. J. A. Y. Lewis to make myself stand out because she writes very very different genres than I. Do and I don't want people to get confused. Also you can find RJ MAGIC DOT COM. That's just the litter the litter.

All of the Philistines out there who don't know how to make t properly will be educated the etiquette of making tea. But we do have a big obsessionally sausages here on, keep calm, cauliflower cheese, above TS, one of the obsessions fully breakfast sausages A. Absolute Essential when it comes to the forest breakfast, but. There was a wartime stir over Queen Mary Sausages. The creed has sausages and the man from the Rif was a wartime scandal that never was involved black market court, martial and Queen Mary seemingly unquenchable appetite for. Decent breakfast sausage. To the relief of the palace courtiers. For. The flagrant breach of wartime food regulations by Georgia, six mother. Never leaked out instead it remained Hevea to a notice passing reference in the diaries of the Kings private. Secretary Alan Michelle's. The scandal is now getting public airing in a wartime murder mystery written by royal biographer. Christopher, who writes into the name of teepee failed. As slipped into several enroll facts into stealing the crown, including the fair of Queen, Mary a sausages during the war, the widow Joseph was evacuated to badminton in Gloucestershire, the home of a niece, the Duchess of Beaufort it was not an easy time for the host Queen Mary speedily took over the whole house and arranged her own life, and there's the biographer wrote problems the bound her favourite tipple was a sparkling missile which Juke did not keep. Keep in the cellars, the conservative MP Henry Chips, channon recorded in his diary that a wine merchant in London, received SOS from badminton for Mohawk Mary also had to be dissuaded from writing letters to a German relatives. They might have been in the family still making contact with the enemy. At that time, the greatest concern however came when she pra kids and sausages from an area officer, who according to one account fell into her debt after. After accepting lifting her Rolls Royce in the spring of Nineteen forty four, Henry McGee the Judge Advocate General, the armed forces called the shells seeking a solution to a delicate court, martial case, and had the potential to become a national scandal. The shell wrote his diary that he was shocked to learn that. It involves Queen Mary. She had been apparently been buying sausages contrary to the food regulations from some RAF depot, and there was some great Shinde. Shinde about it. There was no record in the court martial going ahead, suggesting that the charge was quite a dropped Wilson has the shells expressing fair about what could happen if fleet street got hold of the story Royal Family? In the black market, they say the Queen uses a position to stock up and sausages. His final would would probably held true if our royal family comprehensive properly crisis while hope for the rest of the countries that. Lasalle You know what I think I would have. Carefully smuggled all sorts of types of sausages into the country. I would have gone onto Cava gone under the enemy lines to get a perfect brought west, and bring it back a baited, and you know in stealthy like a spy. Creeping back into the country with sausages rat round my neck and jointly angled beret. So off the much complaint and people writing in on postcards, saying Chappie, please give us human t first of all forty million years ago in the bizarre arm and fish story here we all fossilized teeth. Fish is so similar to ours that very ancestors. These fish are common ancestor. Men have bony, vertebrates. Saunders used the brightest sex race source in France. Digitally dissect the fossil human t first of all four hundred million years ago. Maybe twenty five years ago for British people. In a bizarre armored fish, according to a new x ray analysis of a fossil paleontologists have used European. Synchrotron radiation facility es RF, the strongest x ray source in the well to digitally dissect the primitive jeweled fish, the teeth belonging to the extinct fish, was discovered net Prague and check in the Czech Republic almost one hundred years ago. They were trapped in the encasing rocket. Scientists have not been able to study them before, but the non-destructive x rays hidden details, the size and structure, showing us a striking resemblance to human teeth, humans, no sixty thousand living species of George Vertebrae Sharks, Bony Fish and fittings, reptiles, birds, mammals descendants of this fish researches of said. So they they did an artist's impression of the tropical reef in the Czech Republic, and it contains one of these fish, one of the most primitive Joel vertebrates with teeth. It depicted emerging from its hiding place in an empty shell of a giant molester hunt for food. These findings change our whole understanding the origin of teeth. The jawbones resemble those of the Bony Fish and seemed to be directly ancestor to our own. So when you grin, the Baugh Romero in the morning, and the teeth that grin back, you can trace their origins right back to the first your vertebrae. Teeth and the courage or vertebrates, including humans in shock to real sins, some consistent patents new tape fusion to develop on the inside of the old ones out wants to replace them in humans, passenger be modified so that no human no new teeth below the old ones deep inside the jawbone. The however several difference between bony fish in their descendents, including humans and other land, animals and shocks, the sharks have no bones at all, and have a skeleton made of cartilage in t simply sit in the skin in the burn efficient land animals Atif always attached to the jawbones. This extinct order fish, a called stem species, the common, the many different descendants, the also believed to be the first jawed vertebrate in which teeth were known to exist. You know what I think I'm actually going to. Call. These paleontologists and see if I can get some of these. Rep Yelich replica teeth and get them implanted. I absolutely fantastic I mean I think when you have genetically. Porty for maybe British teeth. It would be very useful to Get some of these ancient. Implants put in that I mean if the slice for a piece of steak, you know or sausage, maybe a piece of Ted in tough Fisher, chewy piece of lamb. That'd be absolutely fantastic, so I think. This gives us all hope. All of us. Who Have Um you know they don't have? The liberace said of teeth. I think it might be rivaled wonderful to get implants of fossilized fish fish teeth, and this is something I'm definitely going to look into. So last week I did promise new entry into the oven dictionary, and this is sort of. Nothing. Aging Barnacle that sticks to female objects aggressively and tediously can only be removed with the threat of force. At that point, the bottom feeder has struggle coronary episode and needs urgent.

Safety Rules Lucia von said it's quite hard to communicate to those customers especially after two or three drinks when they need to behave, they just can't get up and go to the bar and get a drink. Guys who never table and chat to some random. They don't even know. Most of the issues been a table, pretty ladies and table pretty boys, and they just go over like all right, do you WANNA drink? You just can't do that anymore, so I mean some of the solutions. I think that we could introduce to help these millennials. Jen's is these a frisky souls. You've had one too many beverages. is why not write the sweet love note? And flirtation note on a bleach. Wipe and just pass it over I mean. At that point you disinfecting and killing the virus, the viruses available, and you can get your love note, Passover, so you could maybe try to create a some sort of paper, aeroplane or bleach, why para pain and fling the replaying through the air with the note on it to the adjacent table, or maybe you could use yesterday selfie stick to clasp a sexy stanza or Raunchy rhyming, couplet and positive over to the Jason Table, so I don't know if selfie sticks or going anymore, but you could just close that beautiful.

Why caught my eye brows delighted to have beauty salons reopen recently we may have improved are running gobbling sour dough skills in lockdown. But all of these are easy painting, your own toenails or shaping your own eyebrows properly, so such procedures require precision and skill and best left to the professionals, and that's why the beauty services charge a hefty fee. So now you can book. pedicure and funding at your browse attended to but wait. What's this brow? SCAPING is apparently off the menu so a facial, and this is a small print of government guidelines in the UK announced this week.

You have to pay a little bit extra for that for that upgrade. You know what I wouldn't even bother with paying the subscription or the upgrade fee I would just actually sit onto hot water bottles, one for each bump cheek and Romantically reminisce about that rubber Wanda the the heated pad and heated hot water bottle, and then you sort of playing a game of Russian Roulette on a bumpy road, and if you have pulled suspension in your car, if the water bottle.

So very occasionally during the pandemic and lockdown board, and does hit pretty hard between the is so what I found in the week and please look it up. is translate Jahics.

Was Chappie the British Butler loves to wind shirts and in Latin that is Chappie Thomas Butler a Matt ferrum shirts, so that's the first one, so the butlers mind really does happen to wander in the next. One is I can't even imagine Margaret Thatcher on a Cold Day. And that one is ego conned imaginary, Margarita fat sugar, indic- figure us. And we have one more to speak into the lesson Cyborg here over here we go. Oh, the vind Lewis making one rav of flatulent. Let's see what how it comes out. vindaloo as fasten UNOM Pontius flatulent. Fans of the sex education TV show can actually stay at a therapist home for those who've been cooped up in a small flat would no gardens since lockdown began? It is the stuff of dreams.

You could actually plays series of little games. Maybe you could play. Pin The penis on the donkey or round and round the Bush all. Maybe a you know you go back to your childhood, a good game with million Willie's. British food is being castigated for centuries all over the world you should've. You should have heard some of the remarks. When I first moved to the United States about how bad apparently British food is, but the Downton Abbey, addicted Spanish tuck into the full English. Breakfast finally have a long disdained British culinary traditions. Spain is suddenly demonstrating an unlikely affection for the full English breakfast. The country's biggest selling newspaper I'll pay has broken with tradition by publishing an article entitled God's saving this breakfast glowing hommage to the FRY up. It's a calorific tasty greasy varied and absolutely wonderful. Set the paper referring. Referring to the very British combination of sausages eggs, bread, beans, tomato source, according to alpay. The Downton Abbey Television series about British napster cats is hugely popular in Spain and has played a key role in enhancing the appeal of the English breakfast. The newspaper illustrated. It's a picture of the programs. Ladies Lady Sybil lying in a bed with a breakfast tray place overlap. The article described how the breakfast has gone from being the preserve the aristocracy to a popular working class dish. and has given rise to Shara, Gresson Yata the Greasy Spoon Cafe, so let's bury. The I did English food is an insipid and generally bad hodgepodge shorts, not the world's most very color new tradition, nor is it most creative will balance, but why denied it's far from the cat food that we imagine over in Spain. Say boy lay founder the English breakfast. Society believe Spain's former version to the English breakfast owed much to poor mutations serve holiday Brits across the Costa's. I believe that the proper English breakfast can be only made with English ingredients, and what you get in those resorts is nothing like that so anyway? Listen back to the podcast a couple of times. We actually cooked on one hundred. Hundred Degree Day here in Denver. We cooked full English on the side. Will on the pavement outside of my house. Oh welcome back to the comfort.
