NBA Chatter With Jackie MacMullan
"The nba comes back in full steam tonight. We're going to talk about a one year anniversary of the day. We call it the go bear game when everything changed. It was leading up to the week before. Boston song conferences. Five six days beforehand. There's utah's in boston. The utah guys get infected. Actually feels like it could have been a lot worse from that standpoint but in some ways it feels like it's been a year in other ways it feels like it's been five years but one thing that is for sure as the nba is a hell of a lot different a year later. What what's the biggest thing that's jumped out to you in the past year other than the no fans you know. I think the dirty little secret bill is just a mental health of we talk a little bit about the mental health of the players. I think it's that plus the mental health of the coaches. I would add that. Gm's ev involved like it it it just. There wasn't enough time. there wasn't an time off and and they knew that and that's why they wanted to start january but broadcast partners. Put the foot down and it. Just i see a steel seal the ripple effects of it when you talk to guys which is not easy to do these days because you're not in an arena. You're not sitting down and shooting the breeze with guys before the game like we normally do but when you get people on the phone or in a private moment you know what one had said to me about three days ago. This is so stupid. You gotta do it. But they're like it's just he one of the one another different. Gm said to me you know. I went in the other day to work is in their team has scuffling a little bit and he said i didn't like i wasn't talking about like hey you know you need to keep your elbow win. He said i just went to all and said like. Are you guys ok not about. I'm going to talk about basketball. Like are you okay. Yeah 'cause 'cause it's been a long haul now and and i think it's obviously a reflection of society as a whole. It's been a long haul for all walks of life in every profession and not to mention the people that aren't working. You know we could. We could spend a whole day on that. But that to me is the overwhelming thing that i notice and they're still great basketball being played. I give the guys that are cutting through this amazing amount of credit especially those final four teams which i think when you look back. Now they all struggled. Yeah lakers not until anthony davis went down with the celtics. Certainly the denver nuggets came out of the. You know the gate. Six and seven the miami heat you know. They were a plan team or out of the playoffs in the early. Start and i think that's a coincidence.

"Hello welcome to classics for kids. I'm naomi lewin. This week in celebration of the christmas season some classical compositions that involve christmas carols in the middle of the nineteenth century. An englishman named william chatterton dix came up with christmasy words. What child is this for the old folk song green sleeves years later when raytheon williams wrote his fantasia on green sleeves. He probably had a pretty good idea that the peace would get played a lot at christmas. Time the fantasia. Green sleeves was originally part of an opera but some pieces of christmas. Carol classical music written to be used in church johann sebastian bach was an excellent organised. Who spent years writing church music. Bach based a whole set of variations on the old german. Carol come mojo known in english as from heaven above earth. I come that same. Carol turns up in auto nikolas christmas overture which even has acquired to sing it. There's another german christmas. Carol in which. Mary sings joseph dearest joseph mine asking joseph for help rocking the baby. Jesus to sleep. Yohannes brahms used that in song. He wrote to honor another baby the son of his good friend joseph or josef in german. Walk him brahms. Like the inside. Joke of the to joseph's and he liked the wonderful tune which he gave to the biala A couple of centuries earlier than brahms was composing in germany mach. One chaperone ta was composing in france. Chaperone ta came up with a whole set of what he called. Carols for instruments. The title of this one is where are those cheerful shepherds headed. One of the top ten favorite christmas carols actually has music by classical composer even though that's not what he wrote it for felix mendelssohn composed a song to celebrate yohannes gutenberg. The man who invented the movable type printing press mendelssohn didn't like the words to that song and told his publisher. He thought the music could be recycled for something else. Maybe a wedding piece but nothing really religious. After mendelssohn died someone in england discovered that the music went perfectly with a poem by charles wesley. The brother of john. Wesley who founded methodism Pieces that use christmas carols were meant to be played at christmas time. Utter reno raspy composed a musical description of three paintings by italian renaissance artist. Sandro botticelli one of those paintings is the adoration of the maj. I in which maj i.

Advocates Call For Changes In Prisons To Reduce Inmates' Exposure To Coronavirus
"State prisoners have been significantly affected by the coronavirus. At least 220,000 of them have tested positive for covert 19 tight conditions and buildings make social distancing and controlling spread difficult. That is the case in Kansas, which has one of the highest infection rates among state prisons and with access to the vaccine, unclear Advocates are calling for changes to reduce exposure. No mean do you, dean of the Kansas News Service reports. Mary Flowers hasn't seen her daughter, Jordan Fuller, since July. Fuller went to county jail and then in October, she was transferred to the Topeka Correctional Facility. The states on Lee Women's prison. Kansas Prisons haven't allowed visitors since March to prevent the spread of the Corona virus. But that hasn't worked. The virus made its way into the state's prisons in April, 11 inmates and three staff members have died. 5000 inmates in the system have tested positive. It's awful to have a child in there, no matter their age, you know, even when they're 30 throughout the pandemic prisoners and Kansas have said social distancing is basically impossible. Everyone has masks. But not every inmate wears thumb. Not everyone reports their symptoms if they're feeling sick. And people are scared for their health and frustrated by new safety restrictions. Flowers says her daughter has been living in a tent in the prison's laundry building for more than seven weeks until all 60 new arrivals to the prison test negative at the same time. She says her daughter has been tested nine times and has been through four quarantines. They put these women in an impossible situation. You know they're being held where they can't even make it inside the prison. John Wesley O'Hara is a corrections officer at the Topeka facility, he says units go in and out of lockdown when someone gets sick. People still move from building to building and the prison hasn't been disciplining people, so it's hard to enforce mask wearing They were understaffed before the pandemic, But even more officers are out now because they're quarantining taking care of kids are working outbreaks at other prisons. The people who are left sometimes work 16 hour shifts. Harris says he tries to be careful and keeps mostly to himself outside of work. But when his roommate who also works at the prison, tested positive they had to miss Thanksgiving with their families. I had to call my ex wife and tell her I can't see my kids for the next two weeks. This is isolating work. Just by its very nature. Now you had something like this where you actually have to have that physical separation as well and the stress becomes 10 times Greater. The Kansas Department of Corrections declined interview requests. But in a statement, spokesman Randy Bowman said the department is working with officials to follow public health guidelines. Criminal justice advocates have said. That's not enough for months. They've argued the best solution is to release people so they can isolate Lauren Bonds is the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas. She helped sue the state to release thousands of inmates this spring. The suit was dismissed. But the A C L U is working on individual clemency applications for prisoners who are vulnerable to the virus. The only way to make sure that the transmission rates go down is to make sure that people in prisons can observe the same, You know, protocols that we're being told to observe out here in the community Governor Laura Kelly's office says she's still considering the requests. As for a vaccine, health care workers in Kansas prisons and jails will be among the first to receive it. But there's no news on whether inmates or other staff will be

The issue that we have in this country is not the quality of care. It's the cost of care and going to a socialized medicine for this country is not the right answer of somebody. This in the va system god blessed va and god bless those people that work in the va. But i'm gonna tell you that's not the system for three hundred seventy million america's or anything that looks like that right now. There's been a lot of money. Spent on me talking about how i guess i don't. I'm sorry against me talking. About how i guess. I don't want to protect people with preexisting conditions. I push back on that very very very very very staunchly. Because nancy pelosi for the last two years could have passed a single standalone bill to mandate insurance companies protected those with pre existing conditions and it would have passed the house. Overwhelmingly it would pass the senate president trump would have signed it. We are all on record for protecting people with preexisting conditions. Everyone what are we talking about. The issue is how do we address the cost of care. Particularly when equality is so high here. In america i tell a story oftentimes about king the king of saudi arabia. Wh when i was there and he heart condition in. Where did he come right here to houston texas a richest man the entire world. He can go anywhere but he came here. So what the. Aca does is as driven cost so high that you want to start to the quality of care. And that's.

"And the fact that we've spent years under presidents who won votes in the person who they ran against The the way that the senate works supreme court right. They're all types of conversations in our politics. Currently that are fundamentally about. Legitimacy is the system fair are the rules as written fair and voting is one of the ways that i think this comes up frequently that for many people no matter their politics they think yeah just. Because it'd you commit a crime. I mean we should take your right to vote for life or no. We shouldn't be making it more difficult for people to vote. And you're seeing in some ways. A bipartisan and cross patterson coalition around some of these issues even as their active attempts being made by any number of folks to restrict the right to vote and the access to the ballot. Box to your point. Wesley about a lot of folks like to think of this. As a historic issue rather than more recent one thing that particularly interests me as a lawyer is looking historically how these voter suppression techniques and methods for limiting who can access the ballot more easily. And should it be hard how they do get ingrained. Historically and recently in our laws as a part of our institutions and systemically throughout our legal system things like poll taxes and the felony voter laws that we just saw in florida. Play out where the state passed a constitutional amendment giving people who had been convicted of felonies. The right to vote and franchising them and then a gop state legislature. Making them have to pay any fine before they can actually vote in that state and most recently. Our supreme court decided a case in two thousand thirteen. Our listeners also heard me talk about this case but it's hugely important. Shelby county beholder. Where the supreme court essentially gutted section five of the voting rights act that paved the way for a lot of these particularly in the deep south like in my home state of georgia but other states allow states to do things like purge voter rolls as we saw in the most recent gubernatorial race in georgia also changed polling locations at the very last minute or closed down a huge number of polling locations largely in minority communities. And so these things that we're talking about are not just actions that folks are taking. They are entrenched in our laws and deeply ingrained in our our legal system in all parts of it in the courts but also in the legislatures and it's historic but Is continuing to play out and to your point. you know. we're seeing the results of that. Two thousand thirteen supreme court opinion. I think in a number of the examples you gave of what's happening in this year's election preventing folks from getting to the polls definitely certner. So you mentioned tommy. Because i i actually wanted to ask you about that. So in teaming up with lebron he and many professional athletes both male and female they've been instrumental and opening up polling stations at sports arenas across the country and one of the interviews that particularly stuck out to me was the discussion with espn journalist. Maria taylor not just because she's a fellow university of georgia grad go dogs but you guys talked about sports and race and politics and she brought up tommy smith and you interview tommy smith and.

"Been talking about flooding energy healthcare. And the like one of the major issues in this country Wesley as you know, that has really flared. This year is violence on the streets. This sort of hatred of the police, the Seattle Leah, Seattle City Council drove Carmen Best Longtime, well respected police chief out of there we've seen the same thing in Rochester and the violence in the streets has got to stop. You've got to re you've got to restore the rule of law and I know that that's an issue that you have been very, very public about W- for people who don't know your stance on the matter, what would you say? So last week I just got endorsed by by the police union here in Houston and I was very pleased and honored to have that. Because what I understand about law enforcement is that these people get up every day they strap on a bulletproof they put a bullet proof vest They have a weapon and a Taser and they have to respond everything ranging from a cat in a tree. To An all out gang war. and. We're human beings were flawed. We're not always going to get it right but but by God, we don't need fewer police officers we need more and of the millions of interactions that law enforcement has with our citizens. Every day we choose to focus on the few that go awry and that's just not right. What I is that. People want to feel safe when they are living in their homes when they are in their communities. And they don't want to walk out and feel like you know the country's GonNa burn itself down because we don't have any law and order because we aren't backing the blue. When Governor Abbott came out just last week. With that petition for politicians to sign that basically says, we're going to support our law enforcement. This is not a Democrat or a Republican issue. This is supporting those people that lay their lives on. The later lies down for us every single day and they could be sitting in their squad car in police car outside of a building and get shot. As, we saw a couple of weeks ago. So I signed that thing as fast as I possibly could. But lizzie Fletcher. Didn't. So, now we are playing partisan games with police officers and I, get it the we are not perfect. There's always bad apples when every bunch you know even as an Apache pilot in the army I, I know that there are some a lot that there are some officers and some NCO's that actually did not represent us well, but the overwhelming majority did my dad would. Always say you don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. So so law enforcement has my full support at I wanNA work with them to get better in to improve is kind of what Americans do we innovate we build, we don't tear down we don't arrest on the past we don't look retroactively we move forward. Let's move with police to get better as a community. You grew up in Houston before we talk about your story. Let's talk about your family story I think is a very powerful add particularly in these times your introduction and said, look, here's here's the we are as a family and from the first time I've met you you are not Wesley Hunt individual you are Wesley Hunt Emily's husband and victorious dad and the lineage of your father who have so much respect for your sister who? You have so much respect for talk a little bit about that Yeah My dad twenty, three years in the army and he taught us respect of this country. He taught us that although we may have had a checkered past and may have had the original sin of slavery that's over and you can be somebody in this country through hard work determination and grit. That's what he told us. No excuses. The buck stops with you. Consequently he has three children. My sister went to West Point. In my family I she is ten years my senior she went on to serve twenty three years active duty as a military intelligence. Officer and also received her masters degree in Applied Mathematics I, went to West Point in my family second did eight years active duty as an Apache helicopter pilot deployed to Iraq flew fifty five combat air emissions in two, thousand six and did two tours of duty in Saudi. Arabia's diplomatic liaison officer, and my brother is also a west point graduate. He did five years. In the Navy we don't. We don't hold that against him. But he went on to do his master's degree and business at Harvard Business School and say that because there sixty years worth of military service in our family and although we are direct descendants of slaves from Louisiana here we sit with the opportunity to serve our country with distinction the opportunity and I say that again to serve our country with distinction to live the American dream to get an education and we have got to continue to preserve this not just for my family or for your family Michael or for your boys but for your children's children after that. Every generation, we have an opportunity to step up and fight and this actually our opportunity to do that right now, we are a product of the American dream and I don't want to take it away from anyone regardless of your race religion color or creed. You can be someone in this country. So basically, if you get elected to Congress, you will be the underachiever in your family. That's exactly right. Exactly right. I'll tell you what my sister my sister is the best of us all I, mean she's she is the trailblazer. She's the one that that showed us. You know tell told us about West Point. We would visit her when we were kids and I think at some point you know when you see your sister marching around and you see helicopters tanks, eight years old I guess I was going to go to west for my entire life but she was a trailblazer for us I followed my sister to the army. Of got about a minute left you have made very clear throughout the course of this campaign. I'm not a black Republican. I am an American American and and I WANNA be seen as an American and I think that that is a very powerful unsaid message that there are more to people. There is more to an individual than their skin color not make assumptions. Based on that skin color, but is that something you're conscious of? Our young people looking at you, I am I am very conscious of it, but this is one of the only countries in the history of this world where you can have ten people in a room from ten different countries and ten different religions ten different races and creeds, and you know what? If, you had everybody put their passport on the table it would all say American. That is our identity I. We are Americans first we are a melting pot. We don't burn the flag we respected because we can unite around that, and then we could solve in hash out our problems afterward and I want to say one more thing Michael because I never I never have an interview without bringing up my fourteen classmates that are no longer with us. They died in the global war on terror one of them who's a Houston Ian went to Westfield High. School. His name is David Frazier and I had the honour and distinction of giving his eulogy some fifteen years ago. These brave men did not die for white people or black people or Hispanic People Asian people they died for. Americans. and. We as a community cannot stand by and not serve because they are no longer here to surf for themselves. We must do this in their stead and less always keep in mind that we get to put our feet on free American soil every morning, and breathe in free American air because people died for it.

"Wesley Hunt is our guest. He is running to retake the seventh congressional district that was long held by Republicans we have to win eighteen a net eighteen. A congressional seats in order to cast at first and most important vote, which is for the speaker of the House, will it be Kevin McCarthy or will it be Nancy Pelosi and if it's Kevin? McCarthy. Then we don't impeach president trump and he can actually accomplish his agenda to think that everything he's done. He's had to do despite Nancy Pelosi's greatest efforts to drag him through impeachment. Imagine that you're preparing a historic Mideast peace deal but you have to set aside a great deal of your day. To prepare for impeachment proceedings I mean it's it's. It's frustrating. It's it's downright infuriating and and on that matter I guess the next Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy has been campaigning in the district for you. These guys want you there tell me about that. he's he's been very supportive of this district and what he's also called. My Anisi hit my candidacy for him as one of the top gets if not the top get for us here moving forward. This is a district that president trump lost by a point and a half, but Mr Culbertson one in two, thousand, sixteen by twelve points. So we have to do is allow people understand what's important to this district. What are the things that that? Make us go. Might the oil and gas industry like health care about that my wife is a pediatric nurse, practitioner at Texas Children's and an infrastructure. These are things that we have to get done in as long as Pelosi has that gavel where I'm not going to see anything and Lizzy Fletcher along with her freshman colleagues, they have all voted with Nancy Pelosi Ninety, nine to one hundred percent of the time. She's not the only one Nancy Pelosi. A rules with an iron fist we all know this and so do they. So this is why it's incumbent for us to get this seat back, and this is why McCarthy is here because he knows that as CD seven goes. So does the House we win this seat back we will take back the house and I think we have a very good shot at doing both. Emily's your wife is a pediatric nurse Practitioner. What does she talked to you about the needs of healthcare that she sees firsthand? She works at a lot of their urgent cares as a nurse practitioner and she's constantly telling me how. We've got. We've got the utilize urgent cares more because of the cost is lower against the cost of care issue. So a lot of times you see kids that have a runny nose and where do they go to the ER. We choose the most expensive form of treatment for something that's minuscule, and so for us, it's actually more of an education process to the public. They help people understand that the symptoms need to match or the treatment need to match the symptoms and guy and so. I think she gets frustrated every now and again fortunately for Houston we're actually are doubting. So. Many urgent cares go right now particularly for pediatrics and for kids But her biggest frustration is is is the education of the public and how can we do a better job with that? I speak for a group called AFC urgent care which stands for American Family Care Urgent Care, and they you know they're walk in for families. I think eleven locations, but they are they have also now A lot of these companies that do work in the refineries they become almost the outsourced medical clinic not almost they outsource medical clinic for people you have occupational health issue gotTa do drug testing. You've got minor injuries and where before they sent those to the emergency room, which by the way long wait and very expensive care, and now they've got these clinics that are actually. said, it's almost a tiered approach to that, and so it's it's been very, very successful for them and I I agree I think that's a big deal you mentioned in thing to Michael. I WANNA thank all. Then there's my wife is one of my heroes gay she you know if you watch how tirelessly that they work even as a pregnant woman still in the middle of cove. Okay still facing patients still going out there and serving the public I mean our first responders, our nurses are doctors that have gone to work every single day in spite of this I just WanNa take time to thank all of them in a watch my wife maneuver throughout this whole endeavor for me has been Spiratou. No mean it makes it makes running running for Congress easy. When you look at a month pregnant woman that's actually going already to. Have a nineteen month, which means you have to take out the trash. You. Getting around that. You mentioned energy in g is critical to this community and I gotta say it is to me the most glaring policy difference between Republicans and Democrats and I have had this conversation with with people in in Houston who are Democrats who say I gotTa Tell You, my party's wrong on this I make my living in the energy industry in my party's wrong on this. This is the policy difference in between the two parties that affect Houston most. Absolutely and The, energy industry in Houston is our absolute life blood. We cannot forget that there are two hundred and fifty thousand jobs are that are affiliated with the oil and gas industry, and then all the industries that are tangentially related to it, and and when you look at congresswoman's woman Fletcher who is ardently and immediately supported Joe Biden who was on record for saying and I quote no new fragging. She immediately backed Comma Harris when she was nominated and by the way she is the CO sponsor or co author of the Green New Deal and the Senate do you know how liberal you have to be to be a senator from California? Guy, this is who she has chosen to back. So so when a President Biden. Leans on a vice president. Khama Harris and then they lean on Nancy Pelosi guess what they're going to have lizzy vote. But I'm here to tell you that they absolutely will not have mine Michael. You know I look at guys like mansion in West Virginia there. There are candidates and officeholders over the years who said look I'm going to stay in my party but I want you to understand I disagree with my party on this major issue that would still be an option if she had come out and said Hey, I'm a pro energy Democrat in Houston that would make it very hard to beat her but she has she is all in on. The green new deal and I just hope people understand it is not fearmongering. It is reality you're talking about simply destroying jobs in this community. It's the equivalent of the lockdown just going into a restaurant and saying you're open on. Monday. But you are no longer open on Tuesday and you're done. We'll continue our conversation with Wesley.

"Was poverty. And I was. I had no idea the carded me off and they put a mask on me and they said now drive back home. For Midland flew up. House dramatic But in order to make sure that I self quarantine in China stayed away from folks, I had to drive back from Midland Texas the same day. So it was a it was a real high in in the morning and then by the time I'm driving back to Houston seeing tumbleweeds. But we saw quarantine the whole family. Had IT you're? Pregnant. So, how does that work? She was pregnant when she got it she she was not as dramatic like me. So she definitely had forty hours of cough then had forty eight hours of this kind of a latent coughing, and then now she's fine. My little one had a to Victoria. She's what nineteen months yesterday, nineteen months but she was Ason to matic like me you would have never known. uh-huh. So I always advise people take this thing take this thing seriously impacts people differently. But just be safe. Does it affect the pregnancy? No does not fortunately for us. So That's a good thing is it is and she's pretty far along issue is. Now. Yes. We're. Zone here. What's he does know the sex it's a girl they have a little girl and it's going to be a another little girl. Well let's talk about healthcare Dan Crenshaw was on Fox morning this new breed of young Republicans that are coming up are much more aggressive about talking regarding policy on healthcare I think some of the older Republicans are not comfortable with that. Not Aware on that just not that that's not that's not something that they they get granular on, but you and I've had a number of conversations about healthcare and that's what crenshaw was talking about this morning Your thoughts as a new congressman. Should you win on Congress's role on healthcare? Right? So right now, my opponent who is Voted with Nancy Pelosi Ninety nine percent of the time she has an ad out against me basically says that I'm against protecting people with preexisting conditions, which is absolutely absurd. was looking at my wife. By the give birth I would call that a pre existing condition that should there should certainly be covered but we want to she just lying when she says that I absolutely I had a constituent in your district yesterday one of the mayors of one of the villages say to me that he saw back to back ads of her saying Wesley Hunt wants to eliminate pre existing conditions and he said there was a spot and then you're spot came on sixty seconds later and it said we will protect br existing conditions. Yes. So so this is an attempt to make you out to be a monster not too bright. She's a congressman she can't Brag on her record. That's right. That's right. Wow. I cut you off. You're you're talking about Michael and I think for us is not it's not the it's not the quality of care here in this country is actually the cost of care that needs to get addressed, and then also for the last couple of years of preexisting conditions is such a big hot button issue for the left. Then pass a single standalone bill but doesn't have a lot of pork in it. That says, insurance companies will continue to cover those with pre-existing conditions. Just do that and I guarantee you. It'll pass the house. Overwhelmingly but they don't WanNa do that. No they want the Cudgel to use against Republicans that they want to kick you're disabled child off of their insurance. Flooding right now obviously, you drive in today it's a big issue. It's. It's another issue that Dan Crenshaw has been very aggressive on that. You have been very aggressive on you know when you look at your district and the villages and and the flooding that occurred on the west side of Houston you know that is as important in that district as street violence is in Seattle herbal shirtless talk about that. Yeah. So you know especially in Congressional districts where we have you know pieces of addicts and Barca reservoirs that we know need some work. We've also known for the last fifty years that we need to work on a building. Net Third Reservoir to create more storage for the city of Houston again topography. The topography of Houston really hasn't changed that much and also we need to improve conveyance by making sure that we at least start the idea or start the project of building the tunnel that I'm sure many of you have heard about in the issue that I have is a lot of these projects at the federal level are controlled by the Army Corps of Engineers. That's who we can influence as Congressmen and women, and right now, not a single bucket of dirt has been moved from addicts a broker and I know this because I was just there last week. Okay. So here we have tropical storm some two years later and Congresswoman Fletcher has it touched these projects. That's actually a part of the problem that we're seeing and look. Flooding is indiscriminate. Okay and we know what's coming every year hurricanes comes every year we have got to get started on these projects yesterday. Well, and you know interestingly the national issues matter. But particularly in that district that was that was hit so hard and I think about everything from six ten west and the further out you went and then the. when when that release occurred in the damage that has occurred, I, mean all through the villages ninety point Hedwig everyone on those ravines on the Bayou I mean we. Feed of of of water, but it's it's very, very frustrating and what I find interesting is I've never heard Lizzie Fletcher mention flooding. Obviously, she's not been able to do anything on the issue in two years of being there. That's that's just unacceptable that district it is, and this is why it's really important for me to win this seat. Okay. Because if you look at kind of. The three congressional seats that have this area encompassed in it is it's Dan Crenshaw, north of I. It's me and it's Mike. Mike McCall. And if we can take the gavel out of Nancy, Pelosi's hands about winning back the seat by winning back the House, we could actually get these projects done in the three of us can work together to to do just that. Talking with Dan a few weeks ago and he has reached out to listen. To music. Fletcher's office. Multiple Times. But never got a call back. So at some point, we have to realize that we got to take the bull by the horns and get this done and I think the three of us can definitely accomplished that if we work together. Well she has been incredibly partisan in part of that is because she was recruited by the National Party folks and I will tell you I don't care if it's in New, York California Oregon Texas Alabama. I. Don't like the idea of these National Party folks coming into any community picking their candidate and saying they're doing it in your racing throwing a bunch of money at her and say, we have to hold onto that seat so that our girl from San Francisco can get blowouts right when when there's a lockout. And and I find that to be the worst of politics and the only thing worse is that some people don't realize that that's what's happening and if all you want your congressman to do is cast a vote for Nancy, Pelosi Yoursel in your district down down down the river and that's exactly that's exactly what she's done. She's not a leader on any issue no and other congressman we'll tell you she is not a leader on any issues. She's not a voice to be heard and into add to that Michael the majority of for money actually comes from out of state. Right. Okay. So make no mistake about California and New York have bought this seat and this is why it's important for us to take it back. Then majority of Mike when he comes from right here in Texas and right here in the district well, they did this to Ted Cruz. The idea is if you can flip a Texas seat, you can flip them anywhere. Right you can come into red state you know low tax. Better Service, state, and pick off a longtime republican congressman and frankly Culbertson got lazy If you can take a seat like that then that that gives her a buffer and that's why the seat has to be one back Wesley Hunt is our guest will continue our conversation in the seventh congressional district a hotly contested race with one time.

It is essentially a safe space for young people of Color who often queer or trans to be safeguarded and to be to experience acceptance and love, and to be able to celebrate their identities, and really be who they are, so it is such a special community and what I love about this. Show it we're making. It's a reality. TV, show dance competitions the fact that it's not your average competition show it is. It's also kind of documentary style.

"Were talking today about podcasts. In the age of a pandemic one show that is returning today after a break is called still processing. It's a podcast with one of the smartest takes on culture and a favorite of ours here at the frame still processing is hosted by Wesley Morris. And Jenna worth them. They're both staff writers at the New York Times when we reach them by skype this week. Each their respective homes. I ask them how the current crisis is affecting their approach for the new season of still processing. I don't know we're still figuring that out a little bit but it occurred to me today. Gina are trying to figure out how to explain what our goal was the season. I mean I think you knew and I just had to catch up with where you were but I think we really are going to spend this bunch episodes that we're GONNA RELEASE OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS. Just watching listening to in reading lots of things and just enjoying that they got made. We'll do the things that we normally. We would typically do the work culture but I mean we're really just going to look at all this great art and popular culture that we have and talk about it. Well we always see the show as a bomb in some ways. We always wanted to feel like you know virtual happy hour with us but I think now we're really into that and so we want people to feel held. Want people to feel seen. We don't want to add to their anxiety and we also don't want to diminish it and so. I think we feel like our offering is helping people make the most of this extra time they have and hopefully distract them from some of the bigger pressing things For an hour or so week so I'm GONNA come back to that idea of bomb at about some of the pieces of art and culture that you feeling like you want to consume these days. How would you categorize that content? Does it fall into certain niches. What do you think was I mean I don't know we haven't really mapped out? What exactly we're going to be going a lot by by gut instinct in like feeling our way toward things that would be fun to to to think about and watch together and listen to together and read together. We're you know we're GONNA do. We're GONNA do a bunch of different things Wesley you recently wrote. In The Times about rewatching Steven soderbergh movie contagion from Twenty Eleven and the headline was for me. Re watching contagion was fun until it wasn't and I have to say I just watched it too and it was really spot on about. How diseases spread. There's so many close ups have how often people touch things and then the body's really start piling up. So what role does contagion or Wesley. Pandemic novel that I think both of us love emily. St. John Man tells station eleven play in our lives. I mean it depends on what you what you need from. These works of of plague and their aftermaths. I watched contagion because I heard one of the people who worked on at one of the one of science journalist consulted on it on a show called on the media talking about all of the problems with virus movies in the ways in which The what the movies have to say about such things aren't always accurate. But you know the fact that she was consultant and that made me wonder like how she she mentioned how hard she worked how she and the other people who worked on the film as consultants hard they worked to get it right some like okay and Soderbergh is is is one of my top twenty favorite filmmakers but I was really surprised by how there's a point in the movie were just for me. It shifted into be into going from a movie. That sort of winking at you in having a good time with you as a as a as a work of genre science fiction sort of medical science fiction genre filmmaking into something really much more grave and considered about what happens to us in times of uncertainty where we're at war with a thing we can't see and what that does to society and what it does to relationships but really the thing that I love about the movie is it. It's not really really about. It's actually just about keeping your government and the idea that you have these three different women representing these three different. Three different Kate winslet and Jennifer really work both work for the. Cdc But they do different things within the CDC and in Marion coachee are works the WHO but the idea that like you have these three women like saving the world essentially not. Because it's some great thing you know to make themselves look good. But because it's their job right exactly these receptors are found in the sales of both Respiratory tried to end the central nervous system and the virus attaches to the cell like a key slipping into lock somewhere in the world. The wrong tape up with wrong. Pack anything like this before and it's still changing. It's figuring us out faster than we're figuring it out because nobody else do. I don't know it just really moved me. The bet movies belief in in work and in science as a as a real sort of moral. 'cause Geno what about you and the role that plagues stories might play in our in our current lives. He no I'm more anxious prone more prone to anxiety than the average person might be so. I made the mistake of watching twenty days later with some friends right at the beginning of all this 'cause I thought it would be funny and it wasn't that funny. It's not funny but it's a my mom.

Mike should tell you that joining us on the line for this episode of the bridge is Wesley Morris. From The New York Times Wesley say hi. Hey Mike how are you good? Thanks fantastic so You know how this works Mike but just to remind everybody. I'm going to ask you three Trivia questions. The first will be a callback to our most recent episode of Hip Parade and the next two will be a preview of our forthcoming episode of hip rate. Are you ready for some trivia? Ready Excellent here. We go question one last month. I ran down Whitney Houston's stunning chart records including the first woman to debut at number one on the album chart with her Whitney album before the charts were computerized with the soundscan system. Only six albums. Total debuted on top before soundscan. Which of these was not one of them. A stevie wonder songs in the key of life be Prince Purple Rain. See Bruce Springsteen live or d Michael Jackson bad so I do not remember you mentioning the Purple Rain. Filling goal is T- principally that is absolutely correct though. It was a blockbuster. Purple Rain took four weeks to reach the top of the album chart whereas stevie wonder Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson. Lp's all opened on top excellent. Mike that's one down. You've got to go. Are you ready for our preview trivia? Ready all right here. We go question to all four of these artists performed live on the nineteen ninety nine grammy awards however who among them went into the night having never scored a top forty pop album or single and came away a superstar with number ones on both charts within three months. A Britney Spears be Shania Twain see Alanis Morissette Or D. Ricky Martin Chris. What year is this? One thousand nine hundred ninety nine ninety nine okay okay. Ninety-nine okay Artists you mentioned were already successful at that point but I feel like ninety nine might have been the the big year for Ricky Martin. So I'M GONNA go with the Ricky Morton and that would be correct. The correct answer is d. Ricky Martin all three women were already platinum sellers and or chart-toppers on Grammy Night. One thousand nine hundred nine Ricky Martin. A Latin pop star delivered an electrifying version of the cup of life. Aka. Loco LA VIDA by May. He had America's top album and salt spectacular. You're doing very well Mike. Are you ready for question three? I'm ready here. We go question three during the Latin pop boom on the charts at the turn of the millennium all four of these acts scored number ones on the hot one hundred but three did so in nineteen ninety nine while one had to wait several years longer. Who did not score a number one pop hit until the two thousand dollars a sh- Akira be and Rica. Iglesias see Jennifer Lopez or D Carlos. Santana all right so the one that I remember a little further along possibly. Would it be a secure? You have done it. That is correct. Shakira did not issue her first English language album until two thousand one and her first number one pop hit came in two thousand. Six with hips. Don't lie like Ricky Martin all three of the others Iglesias Lopez and Santana top. The hot one hundred in one thousand nine hundred nine superb. You've run the table on the trivial. Well done Mike Nice job. That's great good job very much. Thanks so I understand. You have a trivia question for me. Is that right? I do all right ready. I'm ready as I'll ever be in the years. Two thousand to two thousand ten. There were no Spanish language number ones on the billboard. One hundred but a few songs in Spanish did hit the top forty which had the most billboard top forty hits in Spanish in the two thousand. A pit bull. Beat Daddy Yankee see Shakira or D. Ricky Martin. This is a great question because all four of those artists had numerous hits in the top forty during the two thousands but the question is specifically who had them in Spanish and the only top forty hit. I remember secure. Having in Spanish is actually my favorite single by her. The one she did with that Assam's locked old tuna. I love that record so but I don't think she had very many other. Spanish language wants to going to eliminate her and this also appeared. Repeatable is kind of a reggae tone star. But he's still singing English a lot so I think it's either people or Daddy Yankee and I'm GonNa go ahead and say Daddy Yankee. That is correct answers. Yes he had four hits in the billboard top forty by the year two thousand ten including two thousand four's gasoline and two thousand seven's collaboration with Burgi impact shoo. I'm glad I'm puzzled. That one out mostly. Did you have any idea because man I was just using deductive logic. I would've guessed daddy Yankee just because I mean I don't know if I can count the number of times of her pit bull do his thing in in in Spanish I mean I have but not in a big debate. Certainly not an all-spanish rate. Well it was a good round for all of us Mike. You got all of your questions right. I got my question right so I just want to say thanks so much for being hip raid listener and joining us on the bridge. Thanks so much for having me so as you could hear from those last two Trivia questions our next episode of Hip Parade will be about Latin pop crossover on the American charts. This year's Jaylo insecure halftime show at Super Bowl reminded us all the power of Latin Crossover. It was a big moment for Spanish language artists Latin pop however the Latin boom of twenty years ago. The one that made Ricky Martin famous was kind of a half step. The moment when J. Lo and Shakira became famous as well because all of those hits were in English by the late tens Spanish language pop hits were starting to crossover on their own terms and not necessarily by adding English versus although of course that helped and we will talk about how Spanish language music has crossed over on the charts over multiple decades right up to the present day. So look out for that in our next episode of Hit parade. My thanks to Wesley Morris for joining me for this episode of the Bridge Wesley. The Best Place for folks to read or listen to you is at the New York Times right and are there other places folks should check you out. Well Geno worth them and I are going to do a live still processing show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music Aka Bam In a month on April ninth. We're going to probably be.

We're not going to spend a lot of time with Whitney Houston or we were going to mention like one aspect of her But we're going to spend a lot of time talking about the bodacious awesomeness of black women from like nineteen eighty two to about nineteen eighty ninety five or ninety six and connect that era.

"She wasn't always doing that. Kinda singing on. I mean so emotional. That second versus so emotional. I got to watch you walk in the room baby. I gotTA watch walkout. And they're like knew that she does. I mean things like that. She'll throw in a little bit. She'll she'll put you put a little stink on a song just so you know that she can do it right and why people. I don't know what people her when they heard us. But as a black person I'm like well. She is clearly communicating does. She is clearly trying to tell us she is still in the room. And I I don't know I just feel like we were real. I mean I think every black person who was hard on Whitney now is like yeah. I think we might have been a little hard on a girl Whitney but I think that part of that was just that she was so enormously successful and popular with white people. I mean with everybody and it didn't matter how much signifying she did in the songs the fact of the matter is in as you point out like people were just they just they don't. They didn't know why a person who was selling that well was why. Why take up space in black world when you know an African America? Why and when you own the rest of the country right now right so when. Houston is finally in the rock and Roll Hall of fame. I've I watched enough artists go through a process of you know in the critical mind. It happened to Donna summer when she was finally inducted a few years back by the way. God bless you. One of my favorite episodes of of podcasting ever done was was. You're not that means a lot to me. I Donna is very personal for me. I grew up with our. I'm a I'm a Brooklyn boy and you know talion my mom's side we. Italians have this weird ownership of Donna. That it's personal but anyway so even after all the drama you know issue finally respected. And she's got this higher love cover. That's all over the radio hundred and the drugstore just the other day and by the way you made a hilarious point in your episode with China then on a rolling stone list of the greatest singers of all time she was one spot below. Wait FOR IT Steve. Winwood who she's now gonna hit covering on the radio I mean Oh my God Chris that list. I know that list. Yeah that was probably. She was still alive by the twenty to compile that left around she could see that list. Yeah just kills me anyway Well you know. I've been thinking a lot about this rock and Roll Hall of fame argument and I'm shocked that it's an argument. Lake me too. What are we arguing like? How how strict are you going to draw these lines right like in my understanding of the way this always worked and you can correct me as I'm speaking out of turn is a voter yourself but I always associated the rock and Roll Hall of fame parameters is just being in the Rock era rate? I agree like what grounds do you discount Whitney Houston if Madonna's in there too well and two more to the point if a wreath is in Aretha was like a first ballot entry. Nobody questioned ARETHA. How do we even wondering why Whitney Houston's in the hall how is that even a question I don't understand that you know? I never mind the people who should be in the hall. Like Roberta flack and Dionne Warwick. Hello her cousin who are not who've never even been on. Roberta flack at that. That is I know right and feel free to talk about the higher love cover on means anything to you. It doesn't it doesn't and I heard that I'm a really big. I do not enjoy posthumous music. I mean it's okay. She recorded it. It was going to be released Japan. I mean fine. It's actually thought when I heard it like Whitney did not think we weren't gonNA find out about this APP. Find OUT SOMEDAY BUT I. I have a really good friend bill. Addison who is who is among the Great Whitney Houston Aficionados. There are several in my life. stunningly high number more than any other artists. And I think he really sort of gave me an appreciation for for not the cargo version but he found the original single or the side and there is just some singing at the end of that record. That just cracked me. I mean it's just this sort of thing where like you hear her doing it and you just laugh because nobody has more fun. And this is the other other thing about Whitney Houston now. I know that we're we're talking about the chart but the great. The greatest thing Whitney Houston ever did was all of her lives in. I mean to go to Whitney Houston concert and hear her rearrange. These songs see her spent eight minutes on one Gospel Number. Shos powerful and just way she would like to get all up in a song man. What a genius. That's her legacy just genius..

"It is it is She's a Russian doll of sound right. She's like what she signifies is so many different things at the exact same moment if she put out that version of that song As a singer if she sung it that way in the recorded version and not lie by the way she sang. It live on silver spoons. Well I don't know I. It's just a totally I mean. She's Anita Baker. She's not Whitney Houston Bright. Which begs the question about crossover and what it means because in essence my focus in this episode and why you know. I waited three years after your episode. Did you my own? Because I really have to think hard about this but my focus was pinpointing when Houston Crossover. And what that meant for both white and black listeners. I mean and I was trying to give a context about what was expected. Not only big crossover stars like Michael Jackson Prince Lionel Richie but what was also getting played on black radio during the eighties. Do you have a sense of what this meant? What crossover meant in the eighties and nineties? And where the other crossover figures from that time Finn was. I was a big chart watcher. And I can tell you that I was free and I also had I watched MTV and beat An vh one and the the the the lack of overlap among at least b. e. t. an MTV. This is a very important point. You're making yeah the lack of overlap. The W- The way they were in different worlds. Your please speak on that. They were just completely different worlds people who were stars to black people this is. I mean you and I were talking before the recording about. Bobby Womack the bobby will of like nineteen eighty six to nineteen ninety. Was Freddie Jackson. Right MR slow down. I mean there was a lot of crossover but the question with a crossover in you probably define this better than I could. But it seemed like a crossover was a person who wasn't going to stay right. Rate like a person who was just visiting and I'm thinking specific like Freddie Jackson is a good advert. Good good example of that Le Vert. I think really good example of of Crossover Lake. They came once. They really come back but they were all over black radio for years. I guess this then segues into the Whitney conversation because if if we assume that much of crossover is just visiting. T- barrier term. Yet Whitney crosses over and stays right. Michael Jackson crosses over and stays Lionel Ritchie crosses over and stays. What does that mean in terms of the black audiences relationship to these artists? Moving forward and what? Why does Whitney in particular get that backlash? That's some of what I was trying to pinpoint. Well none of her of her biggest hits were in the top ten of billboard's hot black singles chart but Michael. Michael Jackson was near the top the year end version. You mean But where do broken hearts go? I mean like there is nothing black radio about that single except the power in blackness of the voice singing.

Welcome to the bridge. Thanks for having me. This is a real pleasure as listener. I you know I've learned so much from you. And the idea that Jan. I did something that made you. WanNa do something on this show is just. That's very cool. No it's true I I and you know you're episode appeared back in the spring of twenty seventeen when double check this. It was one one of the two Whitney documentaries had come out so the one by Nick. Broomfield we can I be me was out and that's what you guys were responding to. And it was right around five years after she died and the second documentary which didn't come out until the summer of two thousand eighteen simply titled Whitney. You know that was still to come but I just thought what inspired me was. You guys were you. Were not avoiding the controversies or the scandals. But you were focusing on the music career and frankly some wonderful anecdotes in there one of which I wanna ask you about right now. Let's just put it on the table. When did you grow to appreciate Whitney Houston and by the way? Feel free to bring up silver spoons if you like. Oh Yeah I mean. That was the first time I've ever seen her. I think that was the first time I I was at school when Merv Griffin was on in the afternoon so I missed her singing home right. There's a moment where the father on the show. His best friend has a new girlfriend. And the new girlfriend happens to be Whitney Houston and so at the end of the episode. They all go or I don't know if everybody goes but somebody goes to the club. It's obviously the boyfriend is there and Whitney Houston sings saving all my love for you and listening to it now when we recorded that episode and we were doing the preparation for it. I was really struck a I was relieved to know. My memory of that moment was true because sometimes I have false memories of cultural events so we all thank God. I was right. She looked exactly as I remembered her. But when I couldn't have appreciated as a seven six seven eight was the arrangement of that song is not recorded the album version.

"Do think roughing mobile taking see wesley next to traditional mobile's android thing i think it depends on who you ask i think it's everyone's keeps talking about how it's changing and maybe this is like the renaissance of the graphic novel or this is the time i think it i think it's given much less space in in media and it's reviewed much less frequently and i hope that that is beginning to change but i think there is still a bias that it's less serious discovering or exploring more this concept of space an empty space are you working on anything else any other projects yeah i'm working on a collection of graphic essays about urban loneliness it started as a i was doing the series for the new yorker where i was drying people who are isolated in public settings it's one of the really interesting parts think about living in a city is just getting to observe people go about their day inside was starting to do big portrait's like that and that involved into an essay collection about loneliness and then i'm working on a graphic novel as well which is in color this time but lists no results the topic fuel new book much and wanting only this wondering when he visited all these abundant places do you feel like you learned something from all that not always i think sometimes i i would take this journey i would save money up forever i would apply to three grants that i could could go do it and then i often felt really sort of disappointed by the experience i think because i'd done so much research beforehand and then you know some of the cities are still partially inhabited but many of them like correct or is is completely abandoned and it's now just sort of a tourist attraction and there is something that's really a letdown about that experience it's like you've you've seen all the photos and they look exactly like they do in real life there's no nothing new to discover was kind of places of you're seeing recently and do feel the going discovering new places and if so what would they be.
