"Norms Saturday Night Live buddies, Adam Sandler and David Spade and Molly Shannon are there. So are Dave Chappelle and David Letterman. And Conan O'Brien, who appreciates not only what Norm Macdonald says, but how he says it. He had to, I think, best work choice of maybe any community I've ever seen. He intentionally mispronounces words. When he knows, he knows how to say TV. He says it's the TV. He came on our show. I think it was his first appearance and he was talking about a doberman and he said it's a doberman. And he knows. But he's constantly screwing with you on every level. Right. But his word choice is he was like Mark Twain. He was, he had this folksy completely out of time and I don't know if he was born 300 years too late or 300 years too early, but he's talking in a way no one speaks like that. And you really appreciate the way he says things. There's a great example of that in one bit where norm, instead of offering any wisdom, wonders why we've come to expect it from him or any comedians in the first place. He mentions one comic in particular, and as Conan notes, mispronounces his name on purpose. But he's got an even funnier idea, a more philosophical one just around the corner. It's been your comedian they expect you to know things nowadays. You know what I mean? Didn't used to be like that. During the Vietnam War, they wouldn't go, wonder what red skeleton thinks on this. But nowadays, like I've heard, they go, the comedian is the modern day philosopher, you know? But first of all, it always makes me feel sad for the actual modern day philosophers. Who exist, you know? After norm set, both Dave Chappelle and David Letterman tried to define what makes norm McDonald's nothing special. So special. It was very in theory. It was amazing. The form is different. It's not strictly speaking, stand up. It's something else. Yes, it is. So is the extended conversation afterward. Part wake, part party, and like Norm Macdonald's portion, unusually intimate. Even with longtime.

"Struggle. We'll explore how one district in the most diverse place in the world confronts a diversity plan that opens up new and old wounds. Listen to school colors right in the code switch podcast feed. This is fresh air and we're speaking with David gallos he is a correspondent for The New York Times. His new book is about the career and legacy of the late Jack Welch. The widely celebrated CEO of General Electric for the last two decades of the 20th century. How far did GE fall from the heights that Jack Welch had taken it to? From being the most valuable company on earth, GE fell to the point of essential irrelevance in the American economy. In 2018, with all of Welch's bad decisions catching up with the company, GE was removed from the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The bluest of blue chip indexes and a real bellwether of the American economy. GE had been one of the very first companies included in the index. And it was ultimately the last of that original group to be removed. But departure from the Dow was this real symbolic moment that ultimately set the stage for a news that happened just last year, which was the fact that GE is finally getting broken up once and for all. What does that mean? Getting broken up once and for all. The company won't exist. The last year, in 2021, GE's current chief executive announced that the company would separate themselves into three smaller stand-alone companies. One focused on jet engines, one focused on medical devices, and one focused on power equipment. This is all that's left of Jack Welch's legacy, far from being the most valuable company on earth and a conglomerate that spanned the world and all these different industries. GE is now going to be essentially chopped up into three different discrete pieces, and that's the end of the story. There's also the matter of Jack Welch's lifestyle and around the time of his retirement. He had a nasty divorce, which led to a court case which revealed some details about his severance arrangement with General Electric. You want to explain this. This is one more way in which what Jack Welch did at GE informed the world we live in today. Jack arranged his compensation package in retirement to be such that he was essentially entitled to live as he had as CEO in perpetuity in practice, that meant that because as CEO he flew on private jets and enjoyed unlimited tabs at the finest restaurants, so in retirement with the company pick up those expenses..

"Or am I wrong about that? During his time at GE, many GE workers benefited. Those men and women at the company who were invested in GE stock, they got to see their fortunes rise along with Welch's and the companies. But again, it depends on the time horizon we're looking at. If we're looking at just the years he was running the company. And just what he did and who benefit at that point, you can make a case that sure. He was good for at least the GE workers who didn't get fired under rank and yank or under his downsizing or offshore or outsourcing. But fast forward and look at what happens to GE's pinchers. Look what happens to the men and women holding GE stock. As it plummets in the years following his departure because when he leaves all of these flaws are fundamentally exposed and Wall Street starts seeing through the charade, so his reputation among workers was a complex one. I think for some GE workers, they enjoyed the benefits. But even in the 90s, when Jack was riding high, it was becoming commonly understood among organized labor among union leaders that Jack had led a charge in the early 80s that was resonating with them still. And has ultimately helped erode union membership in this country to record low levels today. Let me reintroduce you again. We're going to take a break here. We're speaking with David gellis. He's a correspondent for The New York Times. His new book about the late Jack Welch is called the man who broke capitalism. We'll continue our conversation.

"Ultimately, his successor continues this process, and it leads GE to get into things like sub prime mortgages. Short term lending. And all of these businesses become dangerously exposed when the financial crisis finally hits. In addition, Jack used financialization to use GE capital to essentially smooth out the company's earnings. So every 90 days when the company reported its financial results to Wall Street, in the weeks before it had to report, it was able to massage its earnings and do a few transactions here a few transactions there. A few assets buy a few assets if it needed to make a few write offs to come in and hit its earnings targets just about where it had promised Wall Street it would be. And that led to this unprecedented run of almost 80 quarters in a row when GE was able to hit its numbers. Something no other company has ever come close to. What's interesting about this is that the focus on quarterly earnings reports was kind of a feature of corporate leadership in these days that you had to convince Wall Street that you were doing well. That was the benchmark once every three months. And if you did that well, your stock price rose, and Jack Welch did that really successfully. It struck me that if they were able to hit their targets, year after year after year after year, and you're talking about tens or hundreds of millions of dollars in quarterly earnings, it must have looked a little suspicious. I mean, could anything be that, I don't know, could anyone be that successful? I mean, it seems like it must have been fudged just on its face. We have to remember that before 2001 2002, it was a very different era on Wall Street. This was before the sarbanes oxley act implemented a great deal of more stringent financial disclosures on public companies. This was before some of the major corporate scandals like enron and tyco and WorldCom. And it was frankly an era where men like Jack Welch could get away with simply not sharing as much as we might expect big companies to reveal about their quarterly results today. And that's just what he did. It was largely a quote unquote black box. No one really knew exactly all the transactions that were happening inside GE capital. And that was the intent. Now, some people definitely were suspicious. And indeed, not long after well retired. Bill gross, one of the most influential investors, the cofounder of pimco, big Bond manager. He writes this scathing, rebuke of GE, where he says the company's honesty remains in doubt. And goes on to say, GE has been shrouded in mystery for a number of years..

"About the cultures of work. The 9 to 5. It's a myth and rest around the world. I came into this totally prepared to defend my American productivity. At work, the new season of the NPR podcast rough translation. We're speaking with New York Times correspondent David gallas. He's written a new book about the career and legacy of the late Jack Welch. The widely celebrated CEO of General Electric for the last two decades of the 20th century. Gellers argues that Welch's doctrine of ruthless cost cutting and single minded focus on corporate earnings harmed workers ruined GE and warped much of the American economy. Geller's book is the man who broke capitalism. So when Jack Walsh took over the GE corporation in 1981 and ran it for 20 years, you say he forced a lot of downsizing a lot of layoffs. A lot of outsourcing. And he went on an acquisition spree buying other companies which changed the nature of General Electric and gave it control of a lot of companies that it may not have known quite what it was doing with. The third thing you talk about is something called fine financialization. Explain what you mean by this. Jack understood that in the early 1980s, the business world was changing. And indeed, Wall Street and the finance industry was poised to grow in truly exponential ways. And that was the result of changes in technology that were enabling different kinds of market making. And it was also the result of a great deal of financial innovation at banks and leveraged buyout firms, et cetera. And so even before he took over, he had identified what was known as GE capital, this financial center inside the company, as an area that he believed could be really the future of the company. And over the course of his 20 years in charge, he did just that. Many of his acquisitions well beyond kidder Peabody served to enlarge GE capital. But in the process, they took GE into all manner of ultimately somewhat risky financial products. GE all of a sudden was transaction in large corporate real estate deals. They were managing white label credit cards for other companies. They became the owners of enormous fleets of least vehicles and airplanes. They had satellites that they released. And so all of a sudden, again, they realized Jack realizes that finance this large umbrella term for a whole bucket of businesses that are quite far from the factory floor. Hold potentially the keys to making GE as he desires the most valuable company on earth..

"And Welch realized he sort of had bought himself a mess. But at the end of the day it didn't really matter, because what Welch was focused on was using deal making to make GE. Not only bigger, but as he said, number one or number two in every industry. You know, you write that when he bought NBC, it made him a media mogul. And gave him a certain level of visibility and access to celebrities. I mean, what was distinctive about his approach to owning a broadcast network? I mean, did he meddle with content? He reveled in the limelight. There's no doubt about that. Under his watch NBC acquired the rights to the Olympics. And the story goes that he was not entirely persuaded of the business merits of the acquisition, but he understood that it would be a good opportunity to whine and dine other executives and celebrities at the Olympics. And so he went ahead with it. Beyond that though, Welch understood the power of owning media properties long before I think many other media moguls truly did. Now, whether he meddled with coverage in an ongoing basis, I don't know that we can make that claim. But there are instances when indeed some very senior media executives who are working for him at the time have shared anecdotes about him actually doing just that. There were reports that on election night in 2000, Welch is in the decision room at NBC and pressures the team to call the election for George W. Bush. Now, I think they resisted that temptation, there are disputes about whether or not that happened. But the implication was clear, Welch understood the power of the media and at least at times tried to use his influence to shape events to his liking. The remarkable quote here, I mean, I don't know, how reliable this is, is him saying in the newsroom on the election night of that razor thin Bush versus gore race. How much do I have to pay you a holes to call this thing for Bush? Pretty stunning. Indeed. We're going to take another break here. Let me reintroduce you. We're speaking with David Geller's. He is a correspondent for The New York Times. His new book about the late Jack Welch, who was CEO of General Electric for 20.

"This is fresh air. I'm Dave Davies in for Terry gross. If you're concerned about the growing disparities of wealth and income in the United States, as well as the decline in unionization and the fact that our economy seems dominated by corporations committed to downsizing outsourcing offshoring and financial manipulation, our guest, New York Times correspondent David gellis says that to a remarkable degree, these trends can be traced to the career of one man. Jack Welch was the chief executive of the General Electric corporation for the last two decades of the 20th century. In a new book, Gillis says Welch's ruthless cost cutting and single minded focus on quarterly earnings transformed GE and made him a celebrity CEO, a darling of Wall Street whose methods were widely praised and copied by other corporate managers. But gelles argues that the spread of Welch's management principles was bad for workers, bad for the economy, and ultimately bad for GE and the companies that followed his lead. David gelles is a correspondent on the climate desk at The New York Times, covering the intersection of public policy in the private sector. Before that, he was a reporter and columnist for the business section for 8 years before joining the times in 2013, he was a reporter for the Financial Times. His new book is the man who broke capitalism, how Jack Welch gutted the heartland and crushed the soul of corporate America and how to undo his legacy. Well, David gelles welcome to fresh air. You know, Jack Welch took over General Electric in 1981 and I remember it as a company that sold toasters and appliances and dishwashers and refrigerators. This was a company founded by Thomas Edison, almost a hundred years before, give us a sense of GE's role in the American economy and the American life back then. As I dug into the history of GE, I found it hard to overstate. Not only the impact that GE still had in 1981 when Jack took over, but really its role in the history of American industry for the better part of this century before that. This was the company that brought us a vector lightbulbs, power plants, x-ray machines. This was the company that introduced everyday products, like the toaster oven. They were behind the mass marketing of radio sets and televisions, dishwashers. The list just went on and on. And that was just on the consumer side. When you looked at their influence on industry and government beyond what we might find in our kitchens, they were no less influential there as well. It was GE that helped put men on the moon on the Apollo missions. You go back and look at those pictures and there are lines and lines of GE engineers working side by side with NASA engineers. And right up to the present day, the size of that company became at one point, I think representing something close to 1% of the American GDP. And there was a phrase. As GE goes, so goes the American economy. Right. It had a very strong record of research and development and innovation. How did it treat its employees? Like many companies in the post war era, GE was a relatively benevolent employer. Many people call it the golden age of capitalism..

Pastor Shawn Bolz and Eric Discuss Liberty and Revival

"Hey folks, welcome back. I'm talking to Sean boltz. The book is encounter. Sean, we're talking about a lot of stuff. And one of the things one of the themes here is that I think sometimes people think in religious ways that they keep in a little religious box. And they forget that God wants to use our faith to touch everything. And even when you're talking about the simple issue of liberty, right now with the truckers in Canada, there is revival happening in those places that people are realizing we're in a war. People are trying to take away our liberty and who are often the loudest voices is Christians who say yes, God wants us to be free. God wants us to understand how we're supposed to function and we're not supposed to function the way marxists do the way socialists do. We're supposed to be free. And so you're getting stories of at some of these truckers rallies in places like Canada, people get the microphone. I love it. And they're sharing the gospel of Jesus. Absolutely. This is something that God is doing. It's amazing. Well, and I think of every great move I've got to revive that actually hit a nation, like Argentina revival, Welsh revival, the UK revival of the 14 1500s. It start with a little minority of Christians who weren't allowed, and were possibly even passive, and then all of a sudden something woke them up to say this isn't right. We need to stand against injustice. We need to stand for the kingdom. And it's happening again today. It's happening in America. It's happening in Canada. And we're going to hear more and more that you're one of the conversation leaders is driving a narrative of what God is doing and what Christians are doing, what people are seeing and impacting their faith. I think when you read a book, like encounter, it helps set up at the foundation and your heart to say, wait, God is with us in a really unique way right now. And I need to believe and see that. And I've got incredible feedback from the book, more so than any of our other books recently. It's just so crazy to see people who read this and feel like I have a vision now. It's activated things that God's putting me from a long time ago and I'm ready. It's a now time. And I think that we need these kinds of resources right

Eric and James O'Keefe on What We Can Learn From 'Mr. Jones'

"Welcome back folks. I'm talking to James O'Keefe founder of project veritas, author of the new book American muckraker rethinking journalism for the 21st century. So James, I was just referring to this film mister Jones, which talks about Gareth Jones, a Welsh journalist who sees in Soviet Russia in the Soviet Union in the early 30s. What Stalin is doing, which is evil with a capital E but the other journalists, most notably Walter duranty of The New York Times who won a Pulitzer Prize that's never been rescinded for effectively giving cover to Stalin's genocidal murderous regime. But I thought it's so incredible because what the story of the film shows is how one of these reporters, one of these journalists, Vanessa Kirby's character, initially she's basically said, I believe in this communist utopia. And I'm willing to look the other way for the greater good. She eventually changes. But it struck me that that's where Mary very many American journalists are today. They hate Trump so much or they hate something so much that they're willing to overlook the facts, the story. I mean, the most dramatic example for me was the Hunter Biden laptop. When that story got buried by everybody I thought I just feel like my country is dead. You don't have a country if you don't tell those stories. Well, that's true. And in this book, I write about this idea of in journalism. There's always been a tension between access and autonomy. So what I drew from the movie about Jones movie was a study of the potemkin village, so the guy had access to the Soviet Union, and he was being told these things. And these days, journalists, if not narrative Eric, they tend to relay what they're told by the powerful. They just relay it to you. Okay, here's what The Pentagon says. Here's what Putin is saying. Here's what this guy is saying. Well, that's not really journalism. That's more like public relations. So of course, I can't go to these fraudsters. Hi, I'm James O'Keefe. Tell me all the fraud you're committing. They'll never tell me the truth. So investigative journalism is what you really want. You want, okay, you're told X okay, I'm going to go try to disprove X by finding out why. That's not happening anymore. And the reason is not just politics and narrative, yes, that's some of it. It's also economics. It's expensive and it's difficult to challenge the company line or to challenge the government line. And you burn your access to the government. Right. The Biden administration will punish these

I've done i'm thinking fokker. Yeah songs going after that market. You're you're probably thinking about it. More rashly than me. Like i it from the purest perspective of like you know you're you probably got looking at it the right way though. Yeah you're thinking about it from people who are you thinking about it from a perspective. People who all my level who probably wouldn't hire me for coaching anyway after about the mediocre poker players. Like you know old carlos. Well i mean you know. I've got a course called fish in a barrel right so like i use the f. word fairly prominently and the reality is like everybody starts out as a fish. Right like when you're unstudied when you don't know much about boker we all nobody like just comes out of their mother's womb as a poker savant we all start at the same point and so like you know there's lower level poker players who are fish who are beginners that find out about you through you know an outlet like poker news and then investigate like that to me makes a lot of sense and that's those are the type of people that you know. I think that you're gonna do an amazing job As a teacher breaking things down simply for those lower entry level

From entering ballymun miss yes in submitted his resignation to the king earlier today and the palace said in a statement that he will stay on in a caretaker role until a replacement is found but now that the country's leader has stepped down. This appears to have thrown the country into a fresh political crisis as malaysia deals with its worst cova. Nineteen outbreak and a decimated economy. Well for more. I'm joined on the line from kuala lumpur by political analyst. Bridget welsh bridge. Just give us a sense of the timing for this and why the prime minister is saying he's stepping down now well. The prime minister has You know acknowledged. He doesn't have a majority of the parliament support. His speech on his resignation to the public doesn't fully sort of a Address some of the reasons why I think the public pressure has been on him to resign. Which as you pointed out are in the economy in the in the record number of cases The initially slow vaccination rate which says since picked up where over a third of the population is now fully vaccinated but the fact is is that i think that there is a covert has had a very big impact and of course this is created a context for elites to be able to pull their support from him and i think that me and yes instill sort of suggested in his speech that that he was still had lots of support which i think is probably not the case from the perspective of what how he perceives it in the case of the parliament He clearly doesn't have the numbers. The question now is who will have the numbers to form of government

Flipping the Script: A Look Into the Detectives Behind Yvonne Layne's Case

"That we've heard firsthand from an expert about the type of person she believes could have killed yvonne lane someone angry. Who knew von personally and had a reason to attack her with a vengeance and we've heard how botched the crime scene was how the scene didn't match what joe said. I think it's important to take a close look at who exactly detectives were on the case and turn the tables instead of putting the victims under the microscope. I wanna put the cops under it and look at their records and try to figure out why this case was such a mess. I've already talked about a couple of alliance. Police officers like quinton artists. A patrolman who you on allegedly said had started harassing her after a traffic stop. Artists is now a registered sex offender. Then they're officer rick. Who's last name. I'm keeping private for now. Who detectives told the psychic was rumored to be dating. You're on and possibly the father of her youngest child. But now i wanna focus on the four detectives assigned to the case as you may know already. If you've been digging through case files on patriotic. They were detectives. Lloyd bud samson william muko mark walsh and john leech and i want to start with john leech on april first nineteen ninety nine detective. Leach was not on duty yet. He was called in to help. Here's detective samson in his two thousand eight deposition. you've heard clips from before to assist us. Exactly his day off when he got called in. That was true that he was called off vacation to help us this case. And we've called in whether or not was vacation a lot. I don't recall that but yeah he was called in. Did you make the decision. That would be an order now. I do not but somebody did. And so each mccall on the day off part time off and helped samson says. There was no quote lead detective on the case. But according to samson he and bill mucciolo did most of the investigative work leach was mostly on the case to assist like mark welsh. In fact. i won't go into mark welsh much because he wasn't a big part of the case at all.

I guess that he couldn't overcome the nine big blind handicapped given to perkins but what was kind of unusual eight or nine hundred hundred previously. He wasn't far off. Pace swings are pretty common. There's going to be variance in that format. Of course we saw lots of it in the granny poke match several months ago so it was strange for it to kind of have the plug pulled so quickly but obviously his backers and he was substantially backed decided. It just wasn't a profitable venture anymore on you know fan. Some ghetto close. I guess our. I suppose they always have the option to stop. Many in the community. Were very critical of london. I guess they should be critical of london on his team. Took the broom too.

That hasn't found its way into the internet. But there's just so much stuff out there That that part of it is good. If you dig deep and um draw. I collect reference And then i work with concept artists who take that input in generate. You know gorgeous digital paintings that that you can barely tell the difference between the yellow station and the still photograph january generated on there very often. There you can't tell And and weird. And when i started there was always a certain amount of surprise. You design it. You do drawing and maybe you know models and then you you put it together and you build it and there was always like wow. This is cool. There is a surprise element. It's not a surprising. Now because we have such great you know set illustrations and digital models and but there's still that that's thing of going down to the stage in the process of building and creating sets where you walk in the stage and go home. I god i love. And i'm surprised by this and i'm not surprised by that. And that's the real of conceiving and seeing come to life which is why you do it or why i do it. I you know. I have to compliment you on one of my favorite set. Your design is the penguin's lair in batman returns. I mean dow is just totally talking about capturing the character of the penguin that that's exactly where he would live and that was amazing. The think for batman returns as we had anton. I designed the first film and he passed away of course and you had to come in and the second film but i like that you added. It looks like you added your own touches to to like the oversized statues for example. Which is part of batman lauren. The comics was that something be discussed with you or something. Oh you did okay cool i. I don't remember you so long. But i do remember. You know there's the first movie so how how. how can i You know it's like improv. The the basic rule is yes. And so i embraced. Would he did. But then i tried to. You know jack it up in places and the suit my own curiosity about what would really what would serve this story. The best and you know the story of max schreck corporate greed and and kind of fascism all Cps its way into the design of that movie. Yeah i mean you had to design that whole town square and then like the alley where batman has some fights in the beginning and the shrek department store itself. I mean with that grinning cat. That was like ooh that's creepy. But that was the totally wake you a lot of fun and we we had. We started designing that before. We even had a script. Because that in one of those instances where you they say here's We're doing batman returns. We have a release date. We have a star director the but we don't quite have the script yet but you gotta go now because we have a release date and we kinda backed into started building with with basically an outline or a a few key sentences from writer or so. That was pretty. I was pretty hairy especially penguins. Layer was with a huge and miserable. Salam i because we had we air conditioned all of the sets the try to generate brass. But really i think it was. Tim's idea just to keep studio executives set by making it damp cold and miserable and We didn't have. We didn't have a lot of visitor And it was also for the penguins. The live penguins That were in that sense. Penguins prefer cold. Who knew and your work with barry. i mean what you did on men in black three to designed the past and then to take to nasa and i mean that was absolutely amazing how you capture data. I've actually that the gantry way for the astronauts. They actually walked on his at nasa in florida. So and you captured that perfectly. It was really amazing. How you blend the past. What's it like to kind of design the past a little bit. And i guess that's where research comes into your reference research and endlessly staring at it and in people who can and and then You know replicating. That was a really complicated movie to do. Whenever there's time travel involved i i. It's such a puzzle for your brain. It's just staggering. So that was tough. A hard one. I mean you literally have to watch it because if for example something is out of place that looks to today. People are going to say. Wait a minute. And i know. I i remember those days. Well i grew up in the sixties. So it's kind of like. I don't remember that but But then mib gets a little bit of a pass because they obviously had weapons that were kind of based on alien technology to so you kinda give them a little bit but oh yeah yeah that was a that was a tough one definitely but it certainly looked depart on that Like with barry The source material in the first script described the men in black headquarters. There's a series of brown stones in like greenwich village with typewriters next paper and i talked him. It no no. It should be a terminal unbeknownst to anyone. Because it's the whole concept is who knew and therefore to subterranean terminal for the for the coming and going of aliens seemed like the right way to anchor the show and to base the men in black and he of course loved the idea and the rest is history. Yeah that's one of my favorite designs to the age q. Is so cool. It's really amazing. How everything just fits the world so well and know if you would have done in the comics. I don't think that would have worked as well. Not for a movie anyway. So for unfortunate events any news as it. Is it going to come back for another season or maybe you started working out again. We know We you know there were thirteen bucks and we shot off thirteen books twenty five episodes and that's it we did it all so we're done and you can talk about. You're working on now. I can't talk about it. But i probably in. After the summer. I had such a great experience on a series of unfortunate events. I'm scared to go back to work..

"I'm sorry it's nice to help. . You mentioned the this is really A massive massive looks women find so I'm really trying to to stand out. . <unk> out. . So, , how have you been doing during lockdown pandemic in general at Grand Canyon because by by depression is depressive illness so it tends to be endogenous it as much as it doesn't it's not reacted. . So I know that there are many people during the lockdown have discovered. . Being out of control of them mental health I. . in fact, , such would have been a been okay I mean I've been overwhelmed and I have been sad and I've spent days in cheese as we all have but not not as part of a depression because depression, , there's two schools of people as people who really want the world to stop taking over again, , nobody knows people who found such solace in lockdown that they get straightened things are moving moving with his two schools. . I'm kind of a bit of a halfway house, , but generally I am I've tried very much to. . Err on the side of positivity I've tried to be perspective police at loose women is what they call me and try to look for the good news about this virus <unk> when we can help build little China because this too many Corona Karen that cooling out bang just want to dwell on all of the bad signs in order to statistics don't seem to want us to move forward. . So I tried to just having a little bit of perspective on it. . So generally I've been very long winded willfully wave say I've okay. . Woeful is very much welcomed. . So do not. . How you feeling with kind of the end of lockdown in there you said you're kind of in between the nerves and the feeling. . Okay about it. . It's kind of difficult to remain positive because if you if you have to read the mainstream media which all of us being in the media we do, , and because of loose women particularly, , we have a very at never been noticed. . In eighteen years. . But I have in the last few weeks because we have corona virus and we have the black lives matter to huge arenas and. . <unk> been difficult at <unk> after at Jojoy Day as as as middle class white woman sitting on a panel not knowing. . How terrified to know what to say trying to take guidance from all black colleagues you know, , and so that's been that's been hard to navigate, , and also I will not go to the table at least women and to talk about the virus without back by science. . So but that's also difficult because you have the Oxford model and the imperial model as to, , for example, , who are completely different I kind of night before science was sort of social wrong thing that if it was the virus whole, , the scientists would. . Be on what it was and where it was going to go. . So as I say they call me perspective police and I try desperately to remain positive and my view is things like the second wave if there is going to be a second way, , let's prepare for let's deal with it but let's not ruin some of joys about coming out of not down by by we don't know that there's going to be one you know. . Today hearing and I will share. . But you know there's such positive news about the about the vaccine coming out. . But also you have to look for this news you have to look for the stats that moment that may be slight outbreaks going on. . In infection, , but the mortality rate is the lowest that we've had in July for years. . So again, , it's balancing it all and just trying to remain optimistic. . Can we talk a bit about your ambient <unk> unwelcome visitor now? ? Housing depression being. . During the kind of positive promoting it and also to the rising event how's it have? ? You managed that his Araya to? ? Attack No it has the <unk> it has been right. . So the book was spooned at Shall We say by an me documenting an episode of depression real time last September. . And like I said before my depression in the May. . Not Always. But . in the main is endogenous, , it's organic. . So it is depressive illness. . And M. . so as a result of that I, , never know when it's coming. . So an example to people who don't know about about about it as opposed to when we feel depressed went something circumstantially, , it's made you settle or grief-stricken, , which is horrible and depression is not persistent sadness which are often read whenever you look for description of depression it will stay position sadness and I want to say that sadnesses something that we that we feel when something makes us sad. . Like happiness you know it's not a striving for happiness. . Happiness is something we should feel when something makes us happy. . But depression depresses every single emotion. . So you can't feel happiness sadness lovejoy greed <unk> nothing nothing nothing nothing. . So I went to my sister's feeling terrible the morning eyewear crop and visit mine welcome visit to is definitely that and impulsively having talked about this for thirty years I picked up my phone and I recorded three day episode of Depression in. .

My phone goes away unlike missing my phone rings and it'd been on news at ten million and a half people viewed it on the comments ladies would just. . Heartbreaking you know people who completely felt that they been heard for the first time in that I was describing what they feel like people who showed them to that family who suddenly seemed to have an understanding of what gone through people who had never been empathetic to people with depression because they thought it was a what is she going to be depressed about not understanding the illness
