"I loved station 11, and I know that it is controversial, but I really liked the glass hotel. A lot of people hated the glass host. The I read station 11, but I haven't read the glass hotel. It was the follow-up, and I think there are a lot of expectations. And I think a lot of people hated it. It's not at all like station 11. Huh. I was kind of on the fence of station 11, but I also read it mid 2021. Oh, not the right time. Yeah, I didn't realize when I got it. What it was about, and I was like, oh, okay, we're doing this, but beautiful writing. See a tranquility is interesting so far. I'm reading it at night, and I find that every time I start reading it, I'm like, wait, what's happening? But yeah, we'll see how it goes. And then finally, the one I'm kind of most excited about, I started flying solo by Linda Holmes, who wrote EV Drake starts over, which I haven't read. Did you read that? Yes. So that book is so special to me because it was the book that broke me out of my pandemic reading rut. And I owned it for over a year, and it had just sat on my shelf, and I was not excited about it based on the description. I was like, I don't care. And I adored it. And so then when we were talking about books, we wanted to call in, you kind of poo pooed flying solo and you were like, well, if you want it, we can read it, but I don't know how I feel. So I'm delighted that you love it. I don't remember doing that. I guess based on the description it's not something I would necessarily go for, but I'm loving it. It's so fun. And I just, yeah, it's really, I find it very comforting and soothing and I also really love that the main character is in her 40s. And also just the author just randomly worked in that she was plus size, but it's not a plot point at all. It's like never mentioned. And I kind of love that because I don't know. I feel like as a culture, we kind of just read things, assuming people are thin, which is ridiculous, but yeah, anyway, I love that it's not a plot point and it's just a detail and she's an interesting character with an interesting life and I'm really enjoying it. Okay, enough about me and 5000 books. What about you? Well, I have four too. So I read the roughest draft by Emily wimberly and Austin Sigmund broca. I had higher expectations for this one than it delivered. It's a RomCom about a writing duo who has written this chart topping bestseller and then broken up as a writing duo for unknown reasons and they're enlisted by their publisher to deliver on the second book in their contract, even though they now hate each other. And so they go to Florida on this writing retreat to do it. I thought it was also interesting that the authors are a husband and wife. I didn't love it. Oh gosh. Yeah. The idea of writing something with my partner just made me want to, oh, wow, good for them, but. I didn't love this. Okay. I did. That's a bummer. I almost didn't finish it. And then I kind of hate finished the last third of it. Darn. So not a recommend. I read project Hail Mary, which I obviously loved. I read cover story by Susan rigetti. I think that's how you say her last name. I'm not positive. I tore through this in one sitting. It is almost as if she took Elizabeth Holmes Anna delvey and Caroline Calloway and smashed them together into one super scammer. So it's about a scammer who is taking advantage. It's told from the perspective of her mark, I guess, that she's taking advantage of who is an intern at Elle magazine. And that's where they meet the scammers like an editor at large there. And get sucked in and drama unfolds. I loved this. It was really interestingly told too it was all told through emails, FBI records, slack messages, Instagram posts, and diary entries. And for the first 50 pages, I was like, oh, it's a little too simplistic. I don't think I'm gonna like this, but once it really started to get going, like, devoured. Huh. Okay, it's in my pile, so I definitely will pick that up soon. It was great. I think you'll like it. I do love scammers. And then I read how to fake it in Hollywood by Eva wilder, which comes out in June. And Claire mazer, who is my soulmate in celebrity normal people romance reading, told me that she liked this even better than funny you should ask by Alyssa assessment. And so I read this, I was really excited for it. And I liked it better for the first half and then the second half kind of fell apart for me. And I ended up not loving it that much. So this is a fake dating. It's a struggling up and coming actress gets into a PR relationship with kind of like a Ben Affleck if Matt Damon had died. So it's like a famous actor who was part of a fame, like an a list duo, but like the other half of the duo has died and now he's gone into like depression. I got what you meant immediately. So great description. It was just very specific. Yeah. And I didn't, I don't know. It didn't end up being better for me. Okay. But on that note, should we tell people what our may book is? Yes, you can do the honors. So we're going to read funny you should ask by Alyssa sussman. So just doing my diligence here to make sure it was the best celebrity normal person romance of the current of the current times. I was delighted by this book. It is about a journalist who goes to interview an a list celebrity who's about to star in his breakout role for a magazine profile. And it's told in two timelines, the first timeline is when she's writing the profile for the first time, and then the second timeline is ten years later when he's become a big star and then also kind of become disgraced and she's writing a follow-up profile on the ten year anniversary..

"I know that The coolest show audiences amazing and we've been highlighting that and so West of future of young black climate leaders program and and how can people support. I think one of the biggest things is this the sharing content sharing the message Being able to reach out to different people and say hey take this and spreading it as much as possible. aren't necessarily finalized. But we do have some things in the work that we wanna to be able to bring bring forth within the next few months in. So i guess us being able to. Why be ceo being able to call upon you know the cool show To be able in the hip hop caucus say. Hey we have this project. We had this message if you want to spread this swagger networks lights get them to listen in order to get them to also share it amongst their networks and like creating like a my sealion you know. Make sure that you know. We're all connected. In a way. I think that is probably one of the most beneficial beings because you know fly domestic the message. You're not gonna the message won't televised you. Know the truth espen. Time isn't gonna be from the. Tv is not going to be in. The mass media is not going to be you know Foot for in that way so we have to rely on ourselves. Rely on our network to be able to like i guess Sift through us through to the beat out the mass the mass of the mass media machine. You know so yeah relying on each other in spreading spreading a message reading the content. How civilised we wanted a month simple as we can do. No that's right. Revolution may not be televised. But it definitely will be uploaded. So he make check out He will caucus podcast. And wherever we upload this process. You're you're going gonna get it Carin wester future of the young black climate leaders program. Each year is the young black leaders themselves right. The the young people So really hoping again through all of what dante said sharing the message sharing the visibility That this is actually happening. That exist is used as one step in creating the awareness of our folks so that more folks can know about it and take advantage because that visibility and An impact in attention. Then we can actually get more investment more people investment more resource investment resource both financial and skill right in terms that we have such a huge wealth of an ecosystem of skill sets to be able to like setup up here shares. Peer ciphers and really. Wanna make sure that we're growing that we're growing network of black leaders in so. I think that that is really the next step growing that network of black leaders which means sharing the message which means connecting with each other. And what i mean by that is. Is that like if i can call on you right. Like kinda like dante's that if we can call on the show if you can call on you know all of the networks you're connected or we can call on youtube that message and knowing that that is reciprocal thing right. That they were building a community building relationship were growing. I guess you would say our beloved community. I think that is a huge first step because we one of the things that i don't want to lose the momentum and we know kind of again the revolution may not be televised and the reason why that is is because we don't we gotta keep it going. We have to make sure that this is in every day all the time conversation. No matter what we're talking about specifically the program like dante said we do have some things in the works..

"This stuff isn't anything. New are have been doing a lot of this for generations and would because we never get to tell our story. it's taboo or you know non black people or you know white. People people of color no this in terms of connection to their older in our history. We acknowledge it. What is it in the mainstream narrative. Hell nell you know. We like to use words in innovative. And it's like there's nothing innovative about a lot of these things. It's it's really just been This again narrative and kind cultural strategy ship that has happened over generations and we are generations in. It's going to take us that much longer because there's been generations of that to basically dismantle a system. That doesn't work for us. And i think that that's actually the core is well is is that we talk about remediation. We talk about working within a system. This system has never worked for black people. Indigenous people people of color. It wasn't created to work so it's working within a white supremacist structure. How it's supposed to and it will continue to do that. In capital extractive economy that really does continues to exploit us to maintain that system. But it really is about a restructure and if there's to be restructured that actually works for us. We have to be positioned to leading allies is not going to happen. So thank you so much that question. Yes we have to be able to address the history of our pain and our harm in our trauma and that so important. So that we don't then perpetuate that kind of dante's point on other people Because that just makes us vulnerable to not be able to transform the existing system there were ended impacts us to a new one or a restorative one that we know actually does need to value in center serving us as a community rather than killing us rather than making us sick rather than using s for exploitation using us for profit in ways that don't allow us to build our own liberation our own community ownership our own wealth which we had like right. Well no one wants to talk about that story we have. We've had all of those things right so really is just about re-centring all of it Dante she handled that one. So i'm i'm at another layer here for you on his question because you see what worked at once. He was saying they say. Cd does she was doing it. I wanna say i was going do a clubhouse joke. They have your club. They said he was cooking the letter cook as he was definitely doing that. That's so we're hearing hearing currents answer in that process. Wha- what you believe the rolled artists and all this then You know tony capable by quickly. The role of the artist is to make revolution resistible. And and so when she said those amazing words How do you feel that we should That should help us to inform our view of the climate revolution with this kind of position of us taking our rightful place in in leadership.

About what happened in ferguson as well as the underlying iceberg. you know we talk about minneapolis. We talk about we talk about you know charlottesville charlotte all these different sites of uprising in. It's always in the media. The narrative is like old black death while that black death may have been the catalyst. There's an iceberg under their of historic deprivation historic lack of resources story exploitation that causes that know that uprising for that causes the inciting event In seoul the pain may cause the inciting men but in order to continue to vision future. It has to be informed by you. Know love and care and wanted to make. For the other people around you in noxious painted you experience. Both both of you had beautiful responses today. I want i want to go a little deeper In into that. I think it's important for audience to just kinda here and dont'a as you were finishing up your response you you you went and you reflected on the names of those who have been killed by police. Brutality and any acquitted acquitted that to the pain that creates one allowed times in this new age of video of seeing that it literally reliving that but also just the decades long of the pain that has caused within That's the stomach Brutality and i guess that's what i'm leading to is that i equate racial justice in climate justice. The same and i i this four initiative a you know an example. I would say you know. Imagine if the movement for black lives was a was a movement because it's an issue that everybody should be concerned about matter who you are but imagine the moon for black lives was started by predominantly white people and then fifty years later. We ought is thought that fleetwood holiday with something that white groups dealt with and black people were trying to be like. No this is important. This affects our community And because they have become so entrenched into one's doing it we kinda sometimes forgot that that that connection. And what i mean by that is that now. We're seeing that those who are first and worst those who are they're putting petrochemicals and coal fire power plants and pollution and incinerators all kinds of things within black and brown and it didn't as communities for years. We're seeing that. Actually one who have been impacted by the pollution is exactly the ones who have been impacted by the taliban but because the ones who have been layering that they we. We're now just getting to that almost fifty years later. It's spent some time across the board with of justice and obviously that aspect but really as far as understanding environmental Aspects to injustice was happening people now connecting the dots and say. Whoa whoa. whoa i now. Seeing that they're putting these pipelines like wine three on line five will and it goes through black and indigenous or brownsville.

"That's that's exactly why there needs to be black climate leaders that doesn't exist in ways that are mainstream narratives around climate economy etc Do because we are not their position to tell our story. We're just mainly position to again. We asked the questions. Be the teachers Instead of being put in positions of leadership in naturally power which is a huge thing To actually shift it dont'a To answer your question yet. I feel like pay. Maybe wakes you up. But i don't necessarily think that pain him be the driving motivator It has to be a sort of like not wanting others to experience that pain or not wanting others to continue to experience the painting part. I guess from the way. I see it. Because like out my political inculturation was as of marxist. A marks talks about the history. History itself is a history of class conflict right in that like throughout all of his. We've seen in the conflict between Exploiter class and the way class in that with that is what moves history forward the progression of these classes to try to throw out. Bow shock exploitation. And so these this historic class conflict has had a sort of you know Eight has been consistent throughout history right is consistent throughout history and white supremacy white. Supremacy does a unique colonel in that exploited Exploited in that with the introduction of white supremacy noodle have exploited class seeing themselves as you know apart a be a part of the dominant class even though that are exploited because of white supremacy. They made see themselves as you know all right or even been afforded a certain level of privilege in the rise of the american class. I say american western middle classes quickly because the amount of money that the american middle the western middle class would have kind of insulates them against creates that privilege that we talk about the ability to like be okay with the way things are but that system was built on the backs of the people of color people in the global south in so for iced. We can't be okay with it. The system that as exists causes pain for people of color people throughout the world. It causes pain in causes a need to want to make a change in. So i guess for me pain. Wakes you up pain makes you see that. Wow something goes wrong where that privilege. So many people. They don't see anything wrong. they see your sis. Not only do they not see nothing wrong. But they see capitalism oppression as the way things ought to be right. They see ask the way things should be in for us is like the way things are this to be. Directly caused us to be deprived in that. Deprivations gets activated and wants us to make change in so yes. I would agree. That pain introduces people to the system. But paying can't be the introduces people to like wanting to change. But you know that pain can't be the only thing that makes people want to continue. It has to be a love of you know level. Other people love of the earth decide. It's like we can't continue to do this anymore. Because it causes pain to others and wanting to remove that pain from others as well as ourselves is the driving motivator for why we want to make mistakes because pain only so far it has to be something. Outside of that is so yes. I agree that pain want wants you to make pain. It could be the thing that wakes you up for me. Specifically the pain of trayvon martin michael brown in all these different things the pain of the uprising in the pain of the way.

"Capacities is what Widely bcl projects sort of standard on. Thank you for that. I guess so. So this is the for both of you. this is maybe. I don't think it's a hard question but maybe it's when he mainly just wanted this pause for you when you give you answer in this process Could of this. I think it hopefully will. I'm sure will hit you both In your spirit when you think about just where we are a people so this is just the thing I give you a little background to the to the question as well. I believe Dante everything you just said is is correct. I do not believe That the climate movement starts with the industrial age genetic. It definitely starts With the slave trade in some cases before that with this extractive mentality and also with white supremacy. So with that being the case the modern dave to movement a lot of times puts itself in a position where it it It looks at Where we are as a movement based upon either decrease november to protection agency epa or even with the first earth day a mastan with conservation but literally that aspect so basically fifty years ago so everything that kinda wanna get to is. This is that. I feel and me being from louisiana and Having a still going through with my community the effects of hurricane katrina. I believe that the inconvenient truth wasn't just the climate crisis but the truth was white supremacy and and i believe like many and That we until you liberate black people. You can't solve this crisis so with that. Being the case also feel that a lot of times i work is based upon the larger climate movement and it puts us in a position where will always explaining ourselves literally creating products and programs to say that we exist. Hey where over here. And it can be said that black people come into the movement through pain rather than privilege. Do you both agree with that. Greenwich you Yes i think that a start out with. Yes that i agree that he will come to the movement Through pain black people especially. I don't know if i would say. I would say rather than privilege in the context of how we wanted to find privilege right if we're defining it in the context of again white supremacy in the system. Of course right we are. We have we are. We are the most impact it had been historically on all things right and we talk about climate that means the economy that means The the ecology environment. I mean all education everything. Right are the most impacted population and so We walk through even just with race. The contract race You know come to this through pain And i think however if we were to switch that i like to Not not think about coming to this movement in terms of pain in that contract right that we are brought into that are his. The history of our people were brought into Then i would say that we're reconnecting to joy of excellence like like you said rev We get asked the question over and over.

The world took a collective gasp. There was a headline this week. And i the one that went viral. The most people screen shot at the most and we'll be sharing was from fox news at said jennifer aniston. David schwimmer after all. These years are now dating and that got the people go in thinking. Oh my god. Finally it's happening. They talked about how they had crushes on each other briefly you when they were filming and it's all coming together but that lasted. I think less than twenty four hours. Because david schwimmer's reps did put out a statement that that is not true. Thank god i honestly did not want jennifer aniston and david schwimmer to be dating. Because i really liked the story of them having a crush on each other and channeling that crush so hard through ross and rachel and then not acting on it and it's like okay you like that tension build you guys were professional and that's great. I think they're both past that in their lives. That'd be so cool that they end up like that's kind of drew national. Like wow like. Can you know what you're right. Why am i being cynical about it. If if if jennifer and because i have a vendetta against her but then it's like they were destined to be together. Yeah i to be honest. I think this just stems from our personal feelings about david schwimmer right. Like i think jennifer better than david twenty idea of longtime love interest on friends iconic getting together finally yes of course adds a love story for the ages. People would totally obsessed with it. And maybe it's just because ross and rachel who works o- on and off the whole time but you just. You felt happy knowing that. Ross and rachel figured it out that is like you didn't need it as much needed as much in real life. I watched an episode of friends. Who was just on my. I was watching cable when rachel's with joey and yeah think to yourself. How did they write this into brady. Brief time that for that felt silly. It was like rachel. And joey how far toward the end of the show. Run out of things tick yetlis. It felt ridiculous. I'm what no that was. That was ridiculous. What is also ridiculous. That david schwimmer's rep student led this role for like a couple of weeks. The fact that it was david schwimmer's reps denied this now. Jennifer aniston's make this makes is so much funnier because i imagine schumer's publicist. We gotta get out ahead of this. One guys look not even that. But i feel like almost maybe he got embarrassed like oh. I don't want jen to think that i'm telling people where dating didn't think about that. It's far too famous to ever address. Something like this but for him. He's like my. I've gotta to make sure. I'm too busy. Like with brad pitt. Room wimberly jennifer too busy like being. The world's best acts like posting photos of throw his birthday like just she's she also likes like all everything. John mayer post like good. You don't want to seems like such a great lady to take a page out of jennifer aniston spot Lobby john she does. And it's just so funny because it's like this right at the report was that You know those feelings started to stir up again. They've been spending a lot of time at her house in los angeles and his rep told l. u. k. Which is interesting of all publications to give the statement to. They won with al. Uk that the story is quote false. Just false that's the statement false. I mean they like rekindle it at the reunion comic sense. Yeah that is because they gave us the ammunition outlets could see totally outlets being like ooh any chance we get of any of that from like the actual report. No it's well the them confirming that they had crushes was during the friends reunion. I know was this just based on nothing. Oh no it came from closer. I don't even know if it was a legitimate closer online. It's a it's a uk it's a uk publication that i've legitimately never heard of jennifer aniston david together cozy dinners long walks and spark after twenty years of buried feelings together. So maybe that's why. They gave the statement l. u. k. It really was building in the in the uk tabloids and then it got picked up. Because i like. I said the fox news article is what i saw shared a million times. I saw it from pretty little thing which makes zero sense. Pretty full thing is british though is pretty they they posted. I saw their tweet. And then i saw dubois respond to it being like. This is all so damn tonight. Yeah they did pose a story very good very good authority that they're not dating. So you know what everyone sorry. Ross and rachel dreamers out there not happen. it's not it's not and that's okay it. Is we have a great interview with nikki.

It's crazy how big it is. But i give it three out of five. I think caitlyn gives the three point five five but did she see the first one. No okay no but again she was just like we'll we'll watch it. Well you know we do. We have the different streaming services net flicks we have. Hbo mac with hulu. We look through about one hundred movies but because we have all the options. Nothing is good. I like there's gotta be a better one where we were just given like two options. We'd have found a movie we liked. We watched it. I thought it was fine. She thought it was pretty good. But i don't want to spoil it. It's funnier than it is like avengers. He knows a lot of comedy in it but somebody's upset with eddie about spoiling stuff. What this is kathy from wimberly texas boy. I am listening to the again. I really feel like eddie. Just outer banks. They don't tell the yeah you spoil it. I went did some research did i. You said something that doesn't happen until halfway through the first season watching that show. it's terrible. Yeah you weren't but that shows terrible. Like i watched the first episode and i was like this is so stupid. I can't believe the acting everything about it was awful and the fact that you're watching it you deserve to have it spoilt. But only one episode there is shows. I've watched i mean. Listen if i watch ted lasso and stopped at the first episode of been laden. I want to get it right. You can get into it. I completed season one outer banks. I'm not like dying to go see season two or start it but i have seen a lot of friends that i trust their taste and they post about it on instagram. And they're like they're loving it so he loves that kind of stuff right outer banks forever just because i like water and boats and partying people young kids. But it's fine. You're not gonna you're not gonna bench it. I'll tell you that much. You watch the only one episode episode in the first team is. There's these kids out on a boat and they're just looking. They're looking for a sunken ship. Or whatever and these drug lord show up and without even asking questions. They don't know if the kids are just out on the lake refund. They start shooting at them without even knowing what the and what happened on the inner banks but on the outer bath a lot is so dumb life out there. Be careful about spoiling stuff. Gonna say eddie. I i still stand by. I don't think that's okay. And i thought suicide squad was pretty good. Would you like to spoil it. No he doesn't. I don't i didn't like it as much as mike d. Liked it but i do love superhero movies. I was kind of let down a little bit but kaelin did like it. It's on hbo though. If you wanna watch it big day for me. Eight new episodes breaking bobby bones is up today on disney plus so if you guys have disney plus eight brand new episodes for you to watch her up there appreciate if you watch it or if you go to work turn them on. Let them play through. That also helped me so let's over and open. The mailbag now came alien. We call these mailbag. Hey bobby bones. My wife and i don't even see remotely. Either i when it comes to movies when i want to watch something. She'll sit there and politely. Act interested even though. I'd have no issue at all if she had decided to do something else. Well she wants to watch something though is totally different after. Sit there and if. I'm not engaged in the predictable. Romantic fantasy movie she enjoys. I get accused of being rude. It's even worse. I happen to fall asleep to see what you would do. Well you would suggest in the situation. Does this happen with you. do you. in kayla have rules on picking movies rj. We talked a segment ago. Where a texture. And i said. Hey you wanna watch movies. Yes we just went over and started flipping through the different platforms that we subscribe to the only one that we could settle on was suicide squad and she didn't even really why suicide squad i was like i went through a bunch i was like nah and then went on suicide squad and i was like oh that looks good and then. She didn't respond and i went. It looks good. She didn't respond to them. What that looks good you can watch. Suicide squad watched it and i don't think she planned like it as much as she did. She said it was one of her favorite superhero movies. And she's not a big superhero movie person but if she ever gets up walked to the bathroom all positive and like no. I need you to be invested. Some kind of like this guys wife. I'm like if you're going to be here. You need to be invested. I don't think. I respect a movie that she picks the same way. And i wish i would. Because i'll be on my phone sometimes so it shows me. I need to be better at this too. Because i'll go. We watch it but to be fair. I don't know that that. I have to compromise and watching movies a whole lot. Because she's not a big movie watcher. She'll watch a lot more housewives. I do sit and watch housewives with her which is an hour sometimes right. So could this be in the same category as like maybe for some women football. She does a better job at watching my crap that i do at watching her crap. I'll be honest. i can see that. But i do listen. I'll watch some housewives of salt lake. I'll watch house. Beverly hills you know. I don't know i think erica jamie and new now the man and that's the big question did air canal. I know she's going to be back the reunion. She's back for coming back. Okay so you guys would know about talking This is what i would say. I think you guys need a mutually agreed upon. Watch the movie you can have. Three phone breaks up a movie. You need something. He's almost like this emailer. Almost like okay look. I would rather not watch movies. So i don't have to movies but that's okay too. I think if the compromise where we watch movies fun to watch a movie together as a couple only if you both like the movie. And i say this coming from caitlyn's perspective is i've i've dragged her into king kong vs godzilla. And that's why i like that better than i thought i would and could tell she was like what i got myself into. Okay so. I'm the selfish one in this situation and i don't think it's always enjoyable for her. I know but if i want to sit down and watch how to lose a guy in ten days like i would appreciate it and if she came to me and said will you watch this with me i would. She just doesn't do that very often. She's like here's some so. I just think there needs to be a mutually agreed upon either. We don't watch movies together. We pick one a month off our crap or it's this free range do whatever you want if you don't like it but you both have to agree to it or you're gonna hold resent toward the other person. Although it doesn't feel like she's very is up. I know him. That's what i'm saying What would you suggest. I mean i would suggest he needs to like do a little bit of what she does. He needs to sit there and pay attention and watch movies. He's not appreciating the fact that she's doing for him in fact. I think i'm paraphrasing. He's like i mean it's fine. She's doing it. But i'd rather just not watch them with me. And that's so that he can have an out from her movies and that's not cool. I don't like that guy acting better guy there you go. Rj that's.

But you can decide you don't want that. You don't. I'm not gonna I'm done. You know, I don't want to be a part of that. I don't care about that. You don't want to be apart. Don't think of it is that you're done too old, But I also think, but Jen Shah, you know there are people. Yes, that I think the pandemic really. People were stuck at home and Ah, lot of people answered their phones like they had this interesting guy who is a data scientist. He was on Bill Maher couple weeks ago and he worked for Obama when he was 20. He graduated. You know from Oxford, like when he was 19 and he's a data scientist. But he said the reason why the polls were so off politically in 2016 and again in 2020, he said. Democrats or people who lean Democrat or independent. They answer the phone more. They're more willing to talk to people. Okay, he said. Sometimes it's a re framing of like who is answering and sure who is susceptible to the same, So they know things about people that will pick up the phone and A lot of people, he said in 2020 were so lonely, so bored so scared. So this so that the people were answering the phone? Yeah, something to do. Yes. And so that's why scams were up. Right opinion polls were kind of seemed to be to one way or the other. It was very interesting thing, the what they can figure out about who picks up the phone. Yeah, that's interesting or answer service stories or anything like that. But I also think there's so many new things with new technologies and everything coming up every minute of every day. How are we expected to know everything, and I don't think there's anything to do with age. Well, no, it isn't back on that, you know, because there's just too much look at me and never learning how to right Click. Now that's been around forever.

If I were on a tribute thing, I always think it's dire straits who sings dirty laundry. Sounds like Mark not for what is the song minute work Sing. They had a bunch they had gonna be now down under under you, man, you know, And then I feel like the next time will be dirty London really associated that song with that I mean, because it was like 82 waiting around for it was like all that I still can't believe when I went down the Tina Turner Rabbit hole this week that Mark Knopfler wrote private dancer for dire straits and then when it was done, he's like, You know what? This shouldn't be sung by a man. Gave it to Tina Turner. She turned it into a giant hit, right. That's insane. Yeah, never guessed market and we forgot to talk about the fact that a writer and Tina Turner had beef Oh, yeah. I also in watching Aretha last because that was basically we watched. That was like making this. Uh but Aretha kept her private life. So walled off beyond Tina Turner was exact upset. Yeah, Yeah, yeah, you know, talked about Yeah, about that. That was kind of counting on both of them just really was their beef over. Um, I believe it. Woz Tina Turner was being introduced as the queen of rock and roll or Queen of rock and roll and soul or something like that on a Rico was mad under title because she's the queen of soul. Okay, because when that came up in the documentary of Tina Turner it that I thought that was a wreath, his name. I didn't think that What the queen. It's all for the queen of Rackham all when it came up during Tina Turner that I thought that was like she's queen. It's alright, right. So anyway, but I mean, they don't get to like how much it really was. I don't know how much they overlap. I mean, there could have been jealousy or something. Maybe a little envy. Envy, I guess on the part of Aretha because Tina Turner had success with I continue Turner, and then she totally reinvented trail blazed. For herself and in a way because Aretha wanted to act. Not that Tina Turner did. But I don't know. I don't know if it's made immediate competition. I'll just invented scandal like I can see this in our future. Yeah, it just felt like you know, I always sometimes one everyone, um Everybody to get along. Yeah, I ever I don't want to put any two women against each other.

"But in Newark, Delaware, next door played a big role in the fate of the local school district. Will arenas is from Newark and wrote about it for 10 at medium He joins us now. Thanks for having me first of all, for those of us who haven't used next door. Can you talk about what it is, but more importantly, kind of how it's evolved in recent years? So, as you mentioned next door started out as a sort of community bulletin board for the Social Media Age. It was really useful and a lot of ways as the years have gone by, it has become in many communities, a hub for local news and local political discussions next door discourages discussions of national politics. But as it has become more influential in local politics, we've seen that it can play a role in things like local elections. I saw that here in my town of Newark, Delaware, you write about a school referendum. What was the referendum? And how did next door play a role in its result? So in 2019, the Kristina School district, which is the second largest school district in Delaware, was going out for a referendum to raise money. They did all the things they usually do. When they go out for these referendums, and they usually pass, they talked to the local media. What up information on websites. The referendum failed and it failed badly, And when they were looking at why that happened, they realized that a lot of people been talking about it on next door. And those discussions have been dominated by a few really loud voices who were anti district anti referendum who felt that this referendum was just a scam to extract more money from taxpayers. So when they went back out in 2020 Now this situation was much more dire man. If they didn't pass this time, they were going to be cutting all extracurriculars. This time they deputized some of the advocates of the referendum to go on next door. They give him talking points. They said. Hey, when you see people spreading this information about the district Tell him this. They did that They got tons of engagement. There were the one of most popular topics on our local next door network. And this time when the election happened, the turnout was an all time record, and it passed by a landslide. Can't say for sure that that was because of the next war strategy, But it certainly seemed to play a role. We're watching Social media grow while local newspapers struggle. What have you learned about this moment? Through this story, so the decline of local news was bound to leave a vacuum of some sort, and something was bound to fill it. Recently. The emergence of next door has given people a way to get local news from social media in this sort of engaging for Matt. I mean, it's mixed in with With gossip from and about your neighbors. It's it's mixed in with information and stuff you need to know, but obviously things get left out and we have a local weekly paper called The New York Post. It covered the referendum. The reporter told me something interesting. He said that local authorities have actually become less willing to talk to him for stories now that they can reach constituents directly on next door. They can give their unfiltered message, and they don't have to go through the filter of a journalist who may add their own critical questions or scrutiny. And so it could certainly become a hub for misinformation as well as the useful information that you can you can find just from the local knowledge of your neighbors. We've said over and over again here. You know, this used to be a place where you sold a couch, and now it's where you can be and like kind of high stakes. Political battles. You know about school funding. How is next door responded to this shift. Do they even see it or acknowledge it? One way you can tell that next door wasn't fully prepared to take on this role as a major hub for local news or local politics. Is that it's moderation system is very rudimentary. It's all done by volunteers. They're unpaid. They don't get a lot whole lot of training. One thing we've seen recently is that next door in the wake of the U. S. Capitol, Ryan Has tried to pull back a little bit from controversial political content, especially national politics. Now it's also going to stop recommending political groups to users. So it's starting Teofilo that cycle of backlash and response. And taking some additional safety steps that we've seen other social networks go through before it. That's will arenas, senior writer for 10 at medium Thank you for your time. Thanks again. To Alabama now where people are mourning the death of Sheila Washington, She founded the Scottsboro Boys Museum and fought to bring honor and dignity to the nine young black males falsely accused of raping two white women in 1931. In a peer of member station. W. B. H M reports as a child, Sheila Washington was fascinated with the story of the Scottsboro Boys. They ranged in age from 12 to 19, and we're traveling by train through Jackson County, Alabama when they were accused of raping two women in all white jury in Scottsboro sentenced eight of the nine to death. 1931 trial drew national attention. Later, the U. S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the case leading to two landmark civil rights president's regarding the right to counsel and non discrimination in jury selection. Washington learned about the case through an old book hidden in her father's Pillow case. Here's Washington sharing that story last year. Said. One day when I get older, I'm gonna find a place. And honor the slats were boys and put this book on the table and burn a candle. And a memory. Washington did just what she said. In 2010. She opened the Scottsboro Boys Museum and Cultural Center archivist John Allison says Washington faced a lot of opposition. When she opened the museum, he says, as generations past, people in the majority White town wanted to move on and forget about it. Sheila Knew that this was a story worth telling. It was a story that we needed to tell a story we needed to address about the injustices that had happened to these young men. It took Washington 17 years to open the museum. Allison helped her gather materials from the trials. Washington also received help from the Black Heritage Council of the Alabama Historical Commission. Loretta Wimberly, a founding member of the council, says Washington often faced resistance, but she was determined. Sometimes you have the beeper system. You have to be patient, but you have to be courageous. Well, she wants like courageous, persistent person, and she believed in what she was doing. Washington also became the driving force to clear the names of the Scottsboro Boys for Good. With help from a legal team at the University of Alabama. Washington worked with state lawmakers to issue posthumous pardons when convictions involved racial discrimination in 2013. The governor signed the bill and the Scottsboro Boys were exonerated. Alison, the archivist, says Washington's efforts helped the city overcome a big racial stumbling block. And I think it also may be helped us to set a precedent that these things could be done. But it's never too late to do the right thing. It's never too late to right. The wrongs of the past. Washington died unexpectedly at the age of 61. She'll be remembered for her courageous fight to bring honor to the Scottsboro boys, even though they didn't live to see it for NPR news. I'm Jenna Pierre in Birmingham..
