Mindy Kaling playing Velma and Scooby Doo spinoff Black Jamaican actress Jodie Turner Smith playing the doomed wife of Henry, the eighth and the British miniseries and Berlin. My dear sister No holds a loose tongue in her head. So does this sort of diverse casting violate some unspoken rule about realism critic Bob Mondello takes a long view, he says. Cross cultural Casting has always raised eyebrows, even though it's as old as casting itself in the fifth century BC When the Greek playwright escalates, needed a defense attorney for his leading man in the tragedy, the Oresteia he picked the God Apollo choice You do not make if you're worried about verisimilitude in casting. Live theater has always assumed the audience can make imaginative leaps. Whether it's depicting warrior kings who rant my kingdom for a horse or founding fathers who rap. I am not throwing away my shot. Hamilton, of course, is a special case. Just like my country. I'm young, scrappy and hungry, and I'm Shot. It's a Broadway musical, famous not just for putting hip hop in the mouths of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington but for matching black and brown faces to those historic white characters.

This is a story of America, then told by America Now it's our country to with inclusion as Hamilton's calling card, diverse audiences made it a worldwide phenomenon, an outcome that seems natural. In retrospect, but that flew in the face of decades of theater practice in 1986. When the stage union actors equity convened the first national symposium on nontraditional casting.

What was popular back then. In accidentally made shaggy scooby pods. I mean his the way chevy walks. I mean he's definitely wearing flared pants. You know which from the sixties and seventies that would be but he also. I think it had to have been subconscious. No matter what they say. Because do flared pants make you a stunner. Yes yeah actually but his. I'm marie as close. Always being like rumpled come like he wasn't like fried was very clean lined out of baggy.

But i guess this better than that man that is wild to think of an that more to be clear that was in the official press release so peacock could be blatantly lying. But i feel like they would get in trouble. They live like that blatantly so their word for it man. Okay well i guess you. You've set us up there. Christopher for a transition into our next story here which you're talking about the state of hollywood and there being no original ideas anymore Tell me about delma show. I think we've talked a little bit about like the existence of the show. Maybe when it was i but now learned a little bit more about it. Yeah list. I announced back in. I think it was february when. Hbo sets a string of adult shows. That was coming to hbo. Max and one of which was the elmo. Just unoriginal ten episode comedy series about the origins of they'll mattingly the unsung brains leader of the mystery. Inc gang and This is a a series that we learned recently that the series will have no dog. No van and the character will be of east asian descent. So this is going to be set up in a in a world where there's gonna be no shaggy. No scooby doo and the character will be voiced by many killing. And we'll be depicted as being of east asian descent so couple. Big dramatic changes from the character has been traditionally depicted for the past fifty plus years a okay so I mean i guess the answer to the question. Why is already been answered by what. Chris was talking about at the in the previous ob subjects. So we don't really have to go over that too much but Actually i'm curious what you think about this because you and i are both really really big fans of never have i ever which is a i think the most recent show that michaela created. You're going to say. We're really big fans of scooby. Doo expecting shares fans. We're big scuba heads. Continue so so considering that hd considering our phantom of sub brand new original thing that that many tailing recently created. What do you think about her diving into this world. And what do you think about the the changes. That are being made to the sacred. Scooby doo core text here. Michelle why not. I don't really. I mean. I like scooby doo. I've watched I watched it a few times as a kid. Growing up when the reruns of the classic animated series show up and i've seen some films and various things it's classic it's fun I think yeah being as old as it is it's due for some makeovers and reimagining every now and then. I don't actually mind that much. I've even seen the live action movies. And i was convinced for a long time that the first live action movie was better than it was but then i wash it recently and it's not it's not that great But i i don't have any problem with us. I think it's kind of a given considering that. This is an origin story to begin whistle. Of course it's going to be before. She joins mr inc and his four. She meets scooby and shaggy. And why can't you take it as east asian There's many killing is of indian descent and there's actually been a time when she went almo is fitted as by an asian actress before She was portrayed by hayley. Kiyoko who played velma in the live action made for tv movie. Scooby doo mystery. Begins in two thousand nine. So i this.

"And so whether, consciously or unconsciously, we've all sort of accepted that the leader of the campus has a responsibility and addressing this issues, right? Even if that leader didn't create the issue, we look toward our leaders on college campuses. To address those issues to rectified a racial climate When is like that, so I wanted to look at college president specifically because again, whether we know it or not, we have given a lot of credit. We've turned toward those leaders to address our issues. And in the time frame that you focus on its a 40 year period between 1948 in 1968. There were too many college presidents of color that you're talking about. Are there You have no, not from a national standpoint. No, not necessarily. But the beauty of the book is that at historically black colleges, there were black college presidents leading those institutions. And so the book being national reaching from the Northeast coming out to the south. The uppers happened deeps half across to me. It was an on the West Coast. The book has a phenomenal breath in reach of the types of institutions, right? We're talking about private and public. We're talking about predominately white campuses. And historically black campuses. We're also talking about colleges in the south and outside of the south, right because this isn't just a servant issue. And so you do see these numerous instances where there are these white academic leaders leading universities, but they're also in conversation with Black House presents as well in the South. 1948 the entire civil rights movement was butting. Did this change in colleges around the country reflect just was going on elsewhere around the country? Yeah, absolutely right. So the issues at hand and ultimately what the book argues is, you know that college presidents were Insolent you actors, even if they did so quietly in shaping policies and practices that had racial implications in America in a lot of issues weren't tied directly to other issues happening beyond college campuses. And the book has, you know phenomenal conversations about the role that college presidents played in shaping the federal housing acts. They came through the late forties and through the 19 fifties. Inroad at universities played in housing discrimination, especially major cities. New York Philadelphia Boston area Chicago. You pick a major city college presidents for absolutely critical and lobbying before federal officials and having meetings at the White House, particularly with the Eisenhower administration. You see the road at university leaders have played in shaping so many aspects of American societal life. And so it was really, really interesting to think about these academic leaders that way because they're not simply reacting. To social issues where they actually proactive in shaping how the nation engages those issues. Looking at how college president responded to issues when I really got into the history of it is looking at these leaders in a much more broad and much more complex way. You see them as a national collective actively shaping policy around those issues. You spoke about housing discrimination at the chapter where you focus on housing discrimination begins with this wonderful quote from Velma Hall. The Octopus in the South has tentacles in the north that that's just a wonderful way to get into that chapter. You find something in the archives that capture you know everything that you hope to convey in the book Are you looking at the research and bad quote really captures the entire book. Not just that chapter, right is just beautiful in the sense that Yeah, these issues that you know our national collective memory. If you will dance to replace gonna sell rice movement and limit our thoughts primarily to the south, right? They're phenomenal historians. Who have pushed back on it and talk about the Jim Crow north as well. But especially when it comes to higher education in the role of our colleges and universities when it comes to civil rights and rush in an important takeaway, imagining how when federal officials have a national issue They tend to look toward colleges and universities because these other places that are intended to solve our nation's problems, and specifically, they often sounds looks for college presidents because those on individuals who leave the institutions that are supposed to solve our nation's problems. You have stories in here about some fascinating characters and one that I really hooked on was John Davis Williams was the chancellor at Old Miss. Ah, starting in 1946 talk about that the search for him and just the amazing changes the university went through while he was there. Yeah. So So on John Davis Williams, JD Williams as his closest friends call him because the chancellor at Oh, miss in 1946 and the hiring process for him. It's so fascinating, right? So, just a brief background on the university, Mississippi old miss, as it's called Coming through the 19 twenties in 19 thirties, largely the institution's history was focused on maintaining the social hierarchy in that state. Obviously, a segregated is all white is heavily male at that point, and it's just about, you know, grooming the next generation of the Sons of Mississippi, if you will. But ultimately what you see on coming into the 19 forties. Is this sort of national pressure around what is our institution going to become, and there's this conflict on campus. Around. Do we stay focused on becoming sort of a Southern social club or is the university wants to become serious academic institution so it can compete? Across the region and nationally with his fellow academic institutions. And so the search with J. D. Williams because really fascinating because the border shirts these they're very interested in looking for A Southerner, preferably he. Ah, Mississippian. And so JD Williams is born in Kentucky, just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, spends most of his career in Kentucky. I mean, eventually moves up to become president of Marshall University at the time. Marshall College. Meanwhile, at Marshall, President of Marshal in 1942 to 46, hey actually engages a few of these What I call interational programs by some of these national Consortium, which is unheard off. So the process of hiring him is one of those things where he does his delicate dance and trustees, like Do we like this person did not like this person is theseventy enough to leave the university? Mississippi? Eso becomes this is fascinating process to hire him, but he doesn't phenomenal job in building up. That university in terms of physical infrastructure on the book, talks about how many acres and having more square feeds and having more buildings are built on during his tenure, and ultimately he's good at building up the university, but he Tends to take a back seat when it comes to the broader question around desegregation, and that's what about really gets into his leadership after the riot on campuses September 62 when James MEREDITH her role as the first black student JD Wings really steps into the national spotlight and showing how it institution can recover is public image after having a racial riot on campus. He really just walked a tightrope between the segregationists and the integration and and and James MEREDITH himself. And he said after the right he really did keep it together. To me. It didn't rocked about too much, one side or the other on obviously being the college president is important to almost think of them as elected officials because they asked us so many different stakeholders and Janey Williams was no different, right. You have to imagine how he was in conversation with Ross Barnett. White supremacists. Segregation is the governor of Mississippi. But also, you know, in conversation in a legal battle against the end of Lacey P in James Merritt of trying to desegregate the university and trying to walk that tight rope. It wasn't so simple as the president did or did not do something as much more complex than that..

Jim good morning Jimmy how much worse a whole lot worse something like twenty percent more robo calls last year than the year before according to industry groups that keep an eye on these things something like fifty eight billion billion with me I thought it was million hits fifty eight bill calls were released last year now it course zealous some of them are useful calls your pharmacy reminding you that you have a something to pick up they they could be E. something from your your you know your doctor's office reminding you an appointment like that but on in general I think people think of rebel calls as a sort of annoying sales call or the potential scam call that we hear so much about not your right Jimmy I get two or three these things every day right Wrobel tax are they becoming bigger to roadtechs OR eight no Dan yeah they're a little easier to avoid I think at least what I found it you delete and block and try to make sure that the you that you know what yeah that's that's another issue this all is supposed to be covered under under new legislation that president trump signed it was so called the the the telephone rubble call of use criminal enforcement and deterrence a all at two spells out traced right for a little bit sick does it contorted there but at any given the FCC more time to take action against Wrobel collars and the fines can be up to ten thousand dollars per call so the feds are trying to crack down on it this all had the backing of the Florida lawmakers who said that they've been trying to do this kind of thing for years I would imagine that that I read and somebody knows there are states that get more calls I would think Florida would be one only because Wrobel callers are trying to scam you out of something and we've got a much older population probably more vulnerable to this true a get Florida is not in the top ten among the states that get these kinds of calls it surprisingly up up the coast in in Maryland and New Jersey in Virginia they all get many more calls and that in the end even Georgia ranks number nine in the number of complaints the average monthly the people are getting something like twenty eight calls every month the almost one per day there yeah I mean Oregon has a lot of calls out there so I mean there there is a peace seem to be a lot of rhyme or reason except you're looking primarily at coastal states right our other software developers are trying to be able to find a way around this well yes and you can find apps that that are intended to cut into these numbers your provider also your your vessel provider Verizon eighteen T. the others also have of ways that they can alert you to incoming spam calls or to to kind of blocked them as well they put a little bit hesitant about that though Jimmy because the concern is that let's say you you sign on to Verizon's call block service men and you had an important call an emergency call is blocked by Verizon then they face potential liability right they've been a little bit hesitant to go along with this kind of a global so sounds like there really is no answer this thing we're just gonna have to get used to it unless they really put a lot of people in jail with this new legislation and maybe you'll get scared off by right that that that's and and imposing fines and the and making the do not call list actually means something to get used to mean something now it seems to be useless yeah Hey Jim thanks of pleasures are you get and we'll talk to strangers it's Jim Ryan the it I got a call yesterday a unholy give this number but anyway it was a somebody who want to.

The Key to Networking
"I really don't go to a whole lot of industry conferences. But I want to one about two months ago, and I came out of it with a business opportunity that was somewhat unexpected. Although I had planned it a little bit. About two weeks before the conference. I was looking at the agenda, and I was really just scrolling through to see what the sessions were. And to see if any names jumped out of me and one name in particular did jump out not because of his name. But because of the company that he worked for it was a rather large company that followed for a while. And there are a large agency out of New York City. And I wanted to find out more about this agency. And really to see if there was any opportunities that maybe we could Claverie with them somehow. Fast forward to the conference, and he was there and right away. I recognize who he was because I had done a little bit cyber stalking as any good business. Velma person would do. So I knew what he looked like I had actually connected with him on Lincoln and follow him on Twitter. And I think I followed him on Instagram as well. So I was reaching out beforehand introduced myself. I told them I was going to be at this conference. And when I went up to him, I said, oh, hey, I'm Eric. And he goes, oh, yeah. You connected with me on Lincoln. Right. Yeah. That's right. And so we sorta talking it was an icebreaker. It wasn't a cold Helo. Just like everyone else at the conference was doing. There was actually something there that connected us. Although not a very strong connection. He at least knew who I was. And I had propped on that. I was going to be there. And so he probably within my profile pitcher and recognize who was or at least had a general. Idea of who this guy was that was walking towards him at that moment. So we talked for a little while maybe five minutes and the conversation came to a natural conclusion. And I said, well, it was very nice to meet you. And maybe I'll see later the conference. And I thought that was it. I didn't think I was going to bump into him again at all well that night. There was a happy hour, and I was sitting at a table with a couple of people that I met during the conference just having a beer, and I look over at the bar and the same fellow is over by the bar. But he's he's he's us sitting down. Maybe I'll five feet away from the bar, and you standing there, and he's all by himself. And he's he pulls out his phone and starts messing with stone. And what I realized was no one was talking to him, and guess what Dallas that opportunity. So I got up IB lined over to him. And we talked for another ten or fifteen minutes, and this time, it was a lot more at ease because we're in a social setting we're at a bar, or you know, had a couple of beers. And he asked about what we do. And I told him, and he said, you know, what I think there could be an opportunity for what you do in one of our offices. I'm going to connect you with this person and this off. Office. And he did exactly that. So after the conference right away. He sent an Email to introduce me to his point of contact and that led to a couple of emails being exchanged, which led to a video call where we were explaining what we do to the personnel is making the decision now nothing has come of that. But the key here is look at your conference agenda and see who's going to be there and start making connections before you ask you show up. I showed up by myself. I didn't have an entourage with me. So it was a little bit awkward, but still I wanted to meet people there. I got way more out of meeting people there and talking to people than I did from the technical sessions that sat in on the key to conferences networking, and it can lead to opportunities. Whether those opportunities turn into anything is a different story. But you need opportunities to grow your business. So. Again, go to a conference don't just go and sit in the sessions find who's gonna be there beforehand connect with them weeks before and start the conversation before you show VIN person.
