Women Share Why They Fight For Reproductive Justice
"Welcome back to ordinary equality. I'm jimmy wilson a writer editor and feminist activist. And i'm kate. Kelly human rights attorney and feminist activist. Today we're talking about an issue that has been undercurrent of a lot of what we've covered so far reproductive justice it's a framework created by black women to center our needs in the midst of a movement that has ignored us for far too long. This episode we're going to discuss some of the reproductive injustice. That continued post emancipation. And how it spurred the founding of a movement bill to address the inequity and the mistrust caused by centuries of reproductive oppression at the end of the episode will learn white folks myself included can do to better center marginalized and underrepresented voices in this conversation. And what organizations are doing on the ground to ensure reproductive justice the slave breeding industry we discussed in episode three left a painful and persistent legacy in this country. Professor jennifer morgan talked about how the historic commodification of black bodies set the stage for ongoing mistreatment of folks embedding generational trauma that persists today that shamas sits beneath much more recent oppression of reproductive rights throughout most of the twentieth century. Eugenics campaigns flourished in the united states quickly becoming the dominant scientific view. The goal was to exterminate all so-called undesirable qualities in society through often-forced selective breeding and sterilization mental illnesses criminal records unwanted racial traits low intelligence levels and even poverty were considered undesirable indicators leading scientists. Believed that all these traits could and should be selectively bred out of the human population by any means necessary as we now know all of these ideas have since been proven to be as false as they are immoral. Time and time again. In the heyday of eugenics thirty-three states allowed involuntary sterilization on groups lawmakers claimed were unfit have children in california mental institutions. Alone about twenty thousand for sterilizations between nineteen o nine and nineteen seventy-nine unsurprisingly. People of color in immigrants were far more likely to be selected as an undesirable group worthy for sterilization mainstream. Scientists pushed these views. As fact margaret sanger the founder of planned. Parenthood got involved in the eugenics movement as she tried to promote reproductive rights. On october sixteenth. Nine hundred sixteen sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the united states. In order to push the idea of birth control rights forward. She consorted with leaders in the ever growing eugenics movement. She even personally advocated for selective breeding herself in one thousand nine hundred ninety one article. She wrote quote. The most urgent problem. Today is how to limit and discourage the over fertility of the mentally and physically defective as damning as that is. There's more to the story. Here's loretta ross. A professor at smith college and former national coordinator of sister song women of color reproductive justice collective on sanger's legacy her involvement in movement. But i also contextualized wbz devos was vaulted with the jenex movement. And so because it was a popular pseudoscience at that time a lot of people were involved in it. And so to single out margaret sanger as the demon is trying to eliminate the black race is just bad historical research because in fact. She was far ahead of her time. Even i called in a sectional list one day because in nineteen teams retired nineteen sixteen. She about poverty. She wrote about racism she wrote about all the inner sexual issues. We're talking about now. One hundred years later she was so ahead of her time and so she was an accident. Early intersection analyst. Who made some mistakes. But then everybody i know. Who's a human being makes. Mistakes if i wanted to do an analysis of everything dr martin luther king junior it wrong. It's an attention. But maybe they demonize him as they do margaret sanger. Many anti-choice advocates claim. That singer sought to eliminate black people from america altogether. That couldn't be less true. She focused the spread of birth control on poor communities many of which were largely populated with people of color. But it's because they were more likely to be susceptible to unwanted pregnancies and she wrote in one thousand nine fourteen enforced. Motherhood is the most complete denial of women's right to life and liberty. It's definitely disturbing to read about many of sanger's eugenic spaced beliefs. Today though she later repudiated everything. About the idea of selective breeding we still have to contend with the damage her involvement in the movement when a well known figure participates in such a harmful ideology it may provide others the justification to do the same. Her language may also have sowed increased wariness and communities of color after atrocities committed by nazi germany on earth. The terror born from the disgusting ideology of eugenics the vocal public support for the movement fizzled and most sleep died in the united states. But for sterilization continued behind the scenes for decades and still takes place today as we'll discuss later in the
"writer editor" Discussed on Ali on the Run Show
"This conversation is at least a year and a half in the making. We've been emailing about making this happen for so long and here. We are amelia. Beden thank you so much for being here and welcome to the alley on the run. Show thank you so much for having me. I don't know a whole lot of people realize this that you and i go way back because i'm one of the. Og elliott on the run blogs ends. Well also we worked in the same building. Yeah remember and but we never saw each other. Like how crazy is that cardi kind of had my foot out the door at and also up two thousand ten like people weren't making friends on the internet. Thought it would be weird to like lunch an awesome because like my lunch options around that area. I never wanted to go too far. I used to go to g g cafe a lot and it always made me very sick. But i went there because it was my habit so i could've used you like you probably could have found better places than gee-gee cafe at i mean probably couldn't afford to go anywhere hold lay the papyrus next door and then we used to wander around the the whole foods because that was right wing. Katie holmes had moved into that building and so there were all these paparazzi outside that whole foods and we always thought we were going to see katie holmes and never did yeah. I feel like a header. Celebrities like in the wild when i lived in new york. You know at events like shows in stuff like that but go that building that you and i both worked at three three three seven. Th avenue Al sharpton worked in that building. I used to see him in the that very long elevator. Line all the time. It'd be like that's all sharpen cool if that counts talk. Maybe not as exciting appropriate katie holmes. Well before we get to into our like all that we're going to talk about today and bond over we do need to start you off with a warm up. Which is when you tell everyone who you are where you're from and what you do. My name is amelia benton. I'm a freelance writer and editor primarily focusing on health and fitness and also an avid runner in live in my hometown of houston texas with my husband omar in boston terrier rescue astro. What is astro- doing right now. He is penned up in the kitchen behind his baby because he would otherwise probably the running around making toys such a good boy high. So we're going to go back in time and talk all about your career and how you got to where you are today but i wanna go right to the present day. What are you working on right now. What's exciting and what deadlines do you have on tap. Well i worked. I just work on a piece. That was really exciting for me. I'm not sure. I should say who i interviewed because it hasn't been published yet but i just interviewed a certain elite runner who is most likely going to represent mexico on the tokyo exciting marathoner. Yes okay. I can guess who it is. I think party. And who is that foreign and is it a profile. What's it about was awesome. It's runners very cool. Okay so let's let's hear about a day in the life of amelia. People don't understand about what it means to be a freelance journalist. So what does a typical day in the life of amelia. Look like okay. My probably not typical compared to most freelance writers Most days for me start super early because my husband he works in oiling. Ask the street and he his workday start super early. He's usually his first alarm usually goes off before five. Am and. I usually can't go back to sleep once that's happening. So usually get up with him and have some coffee with him and just like lounge around like catch up on the news. Maybe listen to podcasts. Until it gets light out in around seven. I usually go out for myron and you know. Get back walking feet astro in. I usually start my day around nine. And usually i usually have the today show on in the background. My curse you hours of the day usually aren't very productive. I'm usually just answering emails setting up interviews etc and around eleven. When i turned the tv off as one eight usually get more productive than actually start writing and usually end my day around five pm. Usually one of our gets home just because you can't really concentrate when he's home and he's trying to talk to me and i want to be able to talk to him in here about his day so i love hearing about this because i think i mean i think most people in the past year have been working from home whether they still are or they were periodically for freelancers. This is kind of always been the deal. So i had to laugh last year. When are the all the articles. Were coming out like how how to maximize working from home. I'm like a and all the articles like make sure you get dressed. You get dressed everyday. Do you wear jeans. I never get an leggings. Are the best leggings are life. Likings are life. That on. A t shirt leggings i also. I don't think i've worn jeans. I traveled to atlanta for the olympic trials and have no intention of putting jeans on any times know why constrict that sounds horrible. Yeah so do it. Sounds like you do give yourself a hard stop at the end of the day which i think can be challenging especially with when your job is to be interviewing people and i imagine mostly working around their schedules are pretty good about setting boundaries for yourself Honestly not really i. I haven't taken a vacation. This whole time let On and i probably should have. I mean like everybody else has like. I should be able to take a week off but i just know that i'm ever going to be able to not answer my emails. You know like if somebody tells me with a good opportunity of course. I'm going to respond. So yeah tell me about an email. What comes to mind as you look back on your career. Are there certain emails. You've gotten that have been so exciting whether it was someone saying yes to an interview or an editor reaching out accepting a pitch or saying. Hey we'd like you to write for us. Do any emails come to mind. That made you kind of stop in your tracks and feel really excited. Yeah actually you know for twenty twenty. One already had three new to me. Clients that all of them were editors who reached out to me just Just cold like they have read something. I wrote in another publication and then they want me to write for them which which is really i mean. Really flattering because you know just two or three years ago. I was at the point where i felt like i was constantly emailing everyone in eight often. Not getting any kind of response and for the first year. so that i was freelancing. I really wasn't sure this is gonna work out for me. Yeah let's talk about that because you're not shy about the fact that being a freelance journalist is way better more fulfilling more financially desirable in many than working full time at a publication so before we hear the full story of how you made it happen. Can you talk a little bit about that. About why for you. Being freelance has been such a better fit than where you were in the past.
Harmful, false posts about people online
"Today's episode. I want to start out with something. Be pretty scary. For all of us the info that's out there about us on the web and then later i got some great news about a solution for another scary thing rhyme. There's a new security system that will protect both you and your wallet. I wanna tell you about something that is really upsetting to me. And it's something that affects everyday people in greater and greater numbers costing people their jobs causing relationships. You name it and that is false postings about you on the internet is someone who's been in the public eye for decades. It's part of the The drill for me. That i know there are going to be things posted about me. Just flat out aren't true. But there's so much out there about me that people will make their own judgments whether something they see about me. That's just not true. Is the real story or what over time they felt was who you think i am and so for me. No big deal. But what about for somebody who's regular private citizen and they're applying for a job and they never get called back or they have a really promising interview and they never got back with you. Free their second or job offer or you meet somebody you really like to go out with and they go and google you or any search engine and they find out that your this scary monster but it's really not what you are who you are. Here's what's happening. There are people you've heard of revenge porn. I don't know what the name this is. But it's where people were taking out revenge on you purposely post false stuff about you to mess up your life and it is just a brutal thing and i saw a story about this whole problem in the new york times where the new york times writer was contacting people who had been identified as people that were using internet searches a way to take revenge against people posting fake stuff saying people were molesters and all this terrible stuff and the individual. The the new york times contacted took out revenge against that writer and that writers editor and posted all kinds of fake stuff about them. Who's just ugly stuff and there's no easy procedure how to take that stuff down. There was a website. I don't wanna give any publicity to. It's a well known website but not not a household word but a well known website that to me is engaging and extortion that if you find a profile about you on that site and you have proof that none of those things are true they charge you a ransom of a few thousand dollars to pull down the information about you. There was fake in the first place. I mean this is. This is hideous. I mean not only. Should it be a crime when somebody falsely post stuff about you clearly not true that you committed a crime or whatever but the sites that are profiting from this ransoming your reputation back to you. They should be looked at as extortionists and the owners should be facing criminal actions as well but those are should in the meantime. What do you do. This is hard so there are techniques that people will do where they will go around posting a lot of stuff about themselves so they then pushed the fate. Negative stuff down when somebody does a search and that's an imperfect thing and you have to have some decent computer skills to do that but the other thing you may have to do is the best defense. Maybe a good offense. You may have to tell a potential employer. Hey if you do background search on me. There's somebody i don't know who they are. They're taking revenge shots against me and they're posting false stuff about me and you're going to see things about me that aren't true at all
Hope Springs - Growing Flowers From Seed, Clare Foster
"Welcome back to our conversation with clear Foster Gardiner writer editor sharing with us about her garden life journey especially, as it relates to growing flowers from seed were back to hear more about the different kinds of flowers to grow from seed including annuals by annuals, grasses, herbs, perennials, and more. When I look at the. The table of contents and see. How that flows? What criteria did you to set for your contents and the flowers you would include which aren't always traditional flowers. They are also flowering herbs, flowering grasses, It's a, it's a lovely wide range. Will thank you. Yeah. It's it wasn't encyclopedic in any way we didn't want it to be really we we wanted to include the plants and the flowers that we will really growing and that we knew worked really for people. So, cutting flowers and as well as herbs and the the more the edible side of things Yeah. So we really focused on on the plants that the that we were we were growing and that we could recommend first hand. and and I think again because Sabina was working for children seeds and had access to different varieties we were quite Specific in varieties that we were recommending even though those change all the time I mean this quite a few. Varieties now of a certain flowers that we would have put in and they've the because they they just changed the the whole time and find new things. New Exciting colors. So yes. So just just the the the plants, the that we recommend ourselves I think was the the main criteria. And the publishers wanted us to do the be friendly section which I think was a very good idea actually because I think there's a loss of interest in. Oversee ecology and biodiversity biodiversity at the moment and insects in particular. Yeah and I I. Really. This is one of the things that resonated with me about the book when it first came across my desk was the way it is you know it's a pretty straightforward book. It's about growing flowering plants from seed to fill out your your garden over the course of the season. on one level, and then when as I was reading, I kept sort of making little ticks along the margins or underlining because he does get to a lot of universal cultural conversations. The gardening world is having is grappling with right now that I think are all important and you know among those would be Ecological and Seed bio-diversity. So you know just the fact that of trying to grow from seed opens up for almost any Gardner a whole range of plants you would never find at the local garden center and it also then as you are seeing, as C. J. changes changes with the trends if you are growing from seed in that seat is able to come true from seed that you know it reproduces for itself. You are also protecting the biodiversity in A. City of seed so it gets to cede sovereignty and. And I think that is a I'm not sure what it's like in the UK. But that is a very big topic of conversation here for heritage varieties for culturally significant varieties among different groups of people. The indigenous seed keepers network comes to mind immediately the seeds of the African diaspora here in the US is it's a big part of that garden communities, conversation and then you know you, you mentioned the fact and it's clear if you ever grow from seed, it's much more. Economical you spend a lot less money. You create a lot less plastic waste in the world because you don't come home with your you know ten I'm not sure what the equivalent would be in the UK. But you're fourteen dollar one gallon pots using a lot of soil that comes from somewhere and water and and whatever chemicals might have been put on it at the nursery you bypass all of that which I think is an important thing to point out and Made me laugh when I saw comment on one of your instagram posts claire from Genie Blom who said you know annuals are going to save the world and Which is, which is true. But you you never you never preach these things in the book they come up as a result of what you're what you're. Educating people about and sharing with people because you never get far from the fun and the color and the joy. So. As you were working on the book with Sabina were some of these bigger cultural conversations sort of. At the forefront for you. Yes. Yeah I think so. the trouble is with with the book of of of this sort of this size. Is. You're limited with your word count. Quite the lot of text was cut, which is, which is a bit of a shame in a way but but yes, absolutely, I mean these things it is the subtext for the for the whole book. Ready. But more than anything I think an keeping that content that the simplicity simplicity of the framework. Was Key because I just want to encourage people to try to try doing it. And and Yes for the fun of it and the Colorado Avalanche in the garden. And and and. For The expense lack of expense that you can create your own garden so cheaply and so quickly I mean I've just you know I haven't had to ask by any annuals for my pots this year I've grown from seed and and And it so satisfying I, mean just just the whole process of it I I didn't think I can kind of do without it now it's something that.

Yes so I was actually traveling with my boyfriend. Slash unofficial photographer Jonathan. We put our apartment up for after wrench for the majority of spring. He took a hiatus from works to finish his master's program. I'm a travel writer editor for my work. So we were basically had no plans and we're just kind of bopping around and and seeing where felt right so we were actually in India. We are in Delhi win. I The Danish borders were shutting in mere hours. Of course Jonathan could get back but his girlfriend's in American could not that came right before at the American borders shots and I could get back. Jonathan could not so with with literally five hours at in India to choose. We found a cheap flight from Delhi to Bangkok. And we said you know what will be together. This is. There's Kobe it can't destroy a beautiful weather and Delicious Pad Thai at we will will take easy here and just see what comes next. So that's what originally brought me back to Thailand so you all with Jonathan. It's not some long distance relationship livelihood in other episodes and fortunately he is an officer on a Danish oil-tanker so as soon as the flights to Europe started dwindling down in Thailand. He knew he knew that he had to get home or he risked losing his job so about a month ago he he left me Could've defend myself but obviously we we chat every day. This is the first time in my life where I've really had to make every decision For myself and and really every decision wasn't important. One so he is. He will be there at the end of this. I'm I'm really hoping that at some point in the near or distant future either Denmark opens again the US Open's again. Thailand opens again. But until now we we are very much the long distance relationship with him in the middle of the ocean. What are you doing? You was there. Jonathan's going back to today mark. He's going back to work. Your tribal rod is not a lot of commissioning going on. So what have you been doing? Well I'm the kind of person that always needs to keep myself busy. And just in order to stay sane also because I really do love what I do. So as a travel writer and editor. I've pivoted a lot of my messages to stay home but in the future blank blank would be the optimal you know post pandemic vacation so I helped launch L. A. Style magazines travel sector which has been a lot of learning. Seo on the back end and kind of looking for new talent new writers at the same time I also am the executive producer. A PBS show so public television show that's streaming across all the United States. It's funny I don't even have a TV here in my bungalow. But I'm getting all of these pictures of friends who are saying. Hey live is not your shown that I see when I turn on the television. So yes it is hand. It's been a lot of fun. You kind of show people that the idea of friendship connection when travelling which is what the message of fly brother. The show is about Still remains true even during a global worldwide pandemic so it in fact it's been it's been more meaningful than ever because it just shows us the importance of the people that we meet when we travel not just the place as a little bit of a pivot from my normal everyday because those things are are a little bit in line with you know my career and might suggest. I've met a really wonderful group of experts from all over the world theory We joke that were a bit of United Nations of of Thailand at and we of course in in a socially distant manner have this rocketed to really help the street dogs and the elephants year in in crabby because at the street dogs really rely on the scraps of the hotels and the restaurants tourist just leaving McDonald's hamburger in a garbage near the beach but with legitimately notorious. These dogs are are starving and in Near Jack. So what we do. Is We go on our on our motorbikes early in the mornings I'm we collect food. We have you know a donation site available or use our own funds And then we have about eighty five street dogs in different packs that we ride our bikes to which is a new phenomenon for me. Because I've I've never been exactly the most graceful human being so Doing that on a motorbike is is definitely stepping out of comfort zone. I never had thought really how much a pandemic would affect you know with this chain of events how it would affect the animals and in turn affects the humans because now a lot of times people like culturally are are more frightened of the street dogs but if the dogs aren't having to you know come up in bag and really show their show their strength in order to just survive if they can be fed and we feed them food. We feed them vitamins. We've gotten We've taken some to the vets just to make sure they're all right you know they're manged there for Then everyone kind of lives in harmony so that people generally have been very very open and welcoming to to the group of ex stats riding around in helping the the dogs.
How Studio 360 Got Started
"Hosting studio three sixty Kurt. Anderson Co founded. Spy magazine was a writer editor. Columnist design and architecture critic and playwright. He'd also just written a novel turn of the century which came out in nineteen ninety nine. The Britain plays. He worked for television. I mean he just was a renaissance person in the arts and in journalism and that was exactly the kind of person we were looking for. That's Melinda Ward the former chief content officer for Public Radio International and creative studio three sixty. And here's Julie Bursting again. I remember that lunch that I had with him when I was interviewing for the job. And he said you know. I've been working with a vocal coach to try to get me to not sound like I grew up in Omaha. That didn't work. Well I said to him. We're firing that person because you need to sound like you if you sound like just yet. Another announcer with a announcer voice. This show is GonNa fail so you gotta sound like yourself. Good Morning. I have realized over the years that I am always. I think much better at this. If I've worked out for Sunday off my super villain name. I speak Spanish. I'M CISCO I need. This is a child to crew. I had a forty five this record in. Oh this is the end and I'm curt Anderson. Thanks very much for listening so for me I was. I would always record Kurt in his sessions and I was in some of his first sessions. And you know he was brand new at doing it. He wasn't sure what P popping was. He didn't know how close to sit to the microphone. He didn't know what a pickup was. It was fun to help someone figure all that stuff out in the interviews. I felt like it took them awhile. Loosen up I'm just GONNA say that. Pairing Him with interesting people felt like the best way to use him so in those early days we just looked for really cool funny interesting people for him to sit down with and that got him excited to come into the office and into the studio and do that and I still remember the day that season Santana came in people do feel a turned off or or indifferent. two images of horror and and war and suffering that they see in that they feel indignant about I think it's comes not because they're blase but because they feel impotent or powerless and I think that's perfectly understandable reaction and I saw Kurt in our conference room and the look on his face of sort of terror was really powerful but I knew he would do a great job but I could see that. This was like the first person we've ever had in the studio that he was a bit in awe of it was just this powerful show about how artists have looked at war since homer and she was phenomenal and he did a great job. Do you feel okay about the new. Whatever you say okay. We show him how current into a lot of different situations that require lots of different levels of sort of being alert to possibilities. We just through so much stuff at him and you know it's a different kind of show in that. He didn't generate ideas but he would rarely say no. I remember doing this segment on sky. Come up with this talk show within the video game halo and we had. Kurt like go and be like an Avatar in the game. They're shooting I'm trying to defend us here. Your need to move faster Kurt. I'm sorry I mean it seems funny to think about it now but like at the time it was super crazy and cutting edge at this guy had figured out how. Sorta hack the game and had this whole virtual reality six months after Katrina. We planned a trip to go to New Orleans. Really figuring out how they were going to try to solve this problem of of how to. Kinda rebuild the city and what the design questions were around at all. The water is gone now of course but the wreckage. That remains is absolutely shocking. Presumably the people in this neighborhood are among those who a great many of them majority perhaps didn't have that's right. They didn't have a choice. I think that's one of the great travesties of Katrina went on a trip to New Orleans for a few days to kind of produce it and get all the different voices together. But you know he's always been really passionate about design and kind of see him step up and really tap into the the human element of what was going on there. It wasn't just like an architecture is it was about people's homes and lives. It was really interesting to see him in that element because so often he is just in a studio and actually one of a favorite memories of working with them in the studio was a program that we did In two thousand fourteen and it was our nineteen fourteen episode and we produce the whole thing as though we had been on the air in nineteen fourteen and today's program we present to you through the medium of radio some singular developments taking place in the arts today in literature drama music and the media. Moving pictures new technologies and new ideas are changing. What we the American people create and how we are entertained. He delivered it in the crazy. Old Timey Voice. That people use stood us for broadcast announcing and our technical director at that time. John Galore. Who brought in a megaphone? Like a troll off Warne and had Kurt record threw it into the mic to compress everything down. I mean I've seen Kurt Geek out on many wonderful occasions but I have never seen him geek out that joyfully. It may not be too old to speculate that later. Generations will look back upon nineteen fourteen as a remarkable year perhaps as a year in which the twentieth century cruelly began. This week on the PODCASTS. Were looking back at the early years of studio three sixty which is drawing to a close after two decades of covering arts and culture on the radio after the first year on the air the show was finding its groove and its audience but then in the fall of two thousand one. The unthinkable happened. There has been an explosion at the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. The upper floors of northern tower at the World Trade Center has experienced an explosion studio three sixties original offices were at wnyc in the municipal building at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge just blocks away from the World Trade Center. I remember coming into work in. Minneapolis and hearing on the radio about the the hit on the towers and then coming into PRI and of course the WNYC studios were right under. The twin towers are right next to them and the that a lot of people took came up under the twin tower so we were horrified and terrified didn't terribly worried about a whole. Wnyc staff and studio three sixty staff you know found out later that Julia Burstein had been in the office and she had had she'd left. Wnyc had to walk all the way up the west side of Manhattan to think it was her brother's apartment or something to call day and coughing and choking and nobody knew what was going on.

It's a picture that the studio for whatever reason has some concerns about and They they say would you mind either looking at it and giving US notes and would you mind coming in for a few weeks or it's phrased you know differently but there comes a point where frequently that's On a picture even working for many months at the director and the editor and maybe even the studio executives the producers sort of what I call snow. Snow blind no not sure what they're looking at anymore because it's been working on it so long. They don't have objected to take on. What's there and any light to bring it? Excuse me like bring in what they called fresh eyes and sometimes just watching picture giving notes and sometimes sometimes it's actually sitting down and doing a version So that's how you know And then I find that Not taking credit is a way to make my suggestions more tolerable eligible that. I'm not trying to hog credit from someone yet. It makes sense to me. Yeah you know so that. The suggestions go down uneasily could easily because they're often as genuine efforts to help. I have a question down the road that steps on this topic. But I'll ask you now because it's just it's it's appropriate at this point. Do you find that studio executives as time goes by our. I don't WanNa say the word meddling because that's has a negative connotation to it but you find that their involvement is more were. The work should probably be left to those in the creative process. Director writer editor is is it. Is it more intrusive as time goes by Paul Well I'll say this that the most successful films that I've worked on. I've been the product of my collaboration with the director. Essentially just the two of us Making decisions incisions about the cat. Now that's well said and and you know I wanNA talk a little bit about your early life so you grew up in Paris.

You know when I was eight years old so I have the vocabulary of an eight year old child but you know I think I think if I stayed there pick it up you know.

I'm an art. I was an art history. Major not major distinction there right as she the average she she was also an art history major so it was like yeah she go ahead. I'm sorry but in my case as an art history major you spend a lot of times looking and yet projected images in dark rooms and critiquing them so I was sort of being prepared for a lifetime of work. Doing just that although I wound up doing moving images instead of still ones but I think my background is was useful in terms of developing an aesthetic about the elements of life of a style in visual arts.

The real story is evil Republicans as always they say the real story here. Republicans pouncing that the story was weaponized Brian seltzer on reliable sources. Remember, he's supposed to be sort of the journalistic ombudsman of CNN calling to account journalistic journalistic crappy nece? Instead, he says, no, no, we all did a great job. The real problem is weaponization Republicans pouncing pouncing as I pointed out over the last six weeks whenever there's an increase in Republicans pal stories. It means the media are not doing their jobs. It means the left are terrible Adair jobs. That's why Republicans are reacting. The reaction of Republicans is never story is never an actual story. The actual story is the media screwing it up. Here's brain Stelter, defending the media. And then saying the real problem here are the folks. The right. High quality. Very careful only a bit. DMZ? Jack. Clump supporting. Imitation pours in some day one. And what you're looking at those sites. Can you can end up? Was able to be weaponized in many different ways port three. Okay. It was weaponized in many different ways. The right was weaponising the story. Okay. Let's let's go through how the media actually covered. This thing from the beginning. Because now we are getting gasoline. Now, the media covered this thing uncritically and other wanna tell us. No, no, we are very careful in our coverage. Here's the montage of members of the media reporting the story. Suffice it to say they were not critical in their coverage of the story. Empire's star jussie smollet was the victim of a vicious racist and homophobic attacks his attackers hurled racial, and how a folks learn people yelled racist, and homophobic, racial and homophobic slurs. We're talking about racism. We're talking I'll sharpen she would steroids. They're looking for two suspects who were apparently wearing make America. Great again.

So did the entire left because the media and the left wanted this story to be true. They desperately wanted the story to be true. And so funny folks on the left will say things like the entire right? Bought into pizza gate or the entire right? Bought into the Barack Obama birtherism hoax that first of all that is not true, but the entire left or at least huge swaths of left, but fully. Into not only the Justice Mel story, but into the near that was president from salt. So Ellen page went on TV with Stephen Colbert.

And then you're blaming Mike Pence for problems across the country for which Mike Pence has no responsibility, and people are uncritically cheering you because this is the world in which fake information can travel quickly. You hear about fake news all the time from the media are the scourge of fake news, the scourge false narrative and President Trump complains the media are complicit in fake news and false narrative. You know, why this is the case? The reasons is the case is because human beings have a natural tendency to believe stories that back there play and right now people have narratives about America that are not true on a lot of different sides.

It means that a hate crime did not occur. Why does it break your heart? When it turns out that accusations that America is deeply racist. And homophobic are not backed by implausible story that make you happy. I give it turned out that somebody accused somebody anti Jewish hate crime. And it turned out not to be true. I feel great because America's not anti semitic country. But for folks on the left if the story backs their play, and it turns out the story is false. That's really bad because then it doesn't back there. Play coming up. We'll get into this Washington Post columnist who says she's very sad that the Justice mallet case was hoax.

I mean unconditionally, and no matter how you're treated or what happens that, you know. So there there's this whole. I mean in dog lovers in the movement has become just a, you know, huge. It's and and some are saying, I know is is. Incredible ascent. But there's they're saying that there might be legislation like it went from slavery to taking care of animals in the same way that the court decisions that made those those decisions. But I mean, it's it it's just to wrap your arms around where it takes place in the United States. We've got Florida we talked about as being banned. It's an Alabama. It's in the state of Kansas. It's an Iowa. And it's in west for Ginny. Well, no, no, no. I mean, those are those states. Stanley poorer poorer states with lower class. Chockablock my home states out there. But they could it's just right on the verge. But yeah. So I mean, well in the the question was where would it be going that has live racing those legal, and in some plants some other places they have simulcasts that actually wind up doing the bedding. But yeah, this would go back into this. I d that it it is man's best friend. But I also do believe that the tendency is going to be to eliminate this eventually in in the United States interesting. You don't see any out west at all. It's just it's in the south and West Virginia is and I was the only one in the midwest Arkansas over there in the south of, but so I the these places and the other thing I think is that they there isn't a real projector with retirement with regards to to the dog. After they're they're treated. So I think that that's part of the problem too. It's never been a positive kind of situation for them. Well, I just know have talked about him in the US almost seventy percent of Wolters decided to bent dog racing in Florida. And now, let's turn to our final topic. Stan Lee, the marvel comics legend Stanley was an American comic book writer editor in publisher. And he was the editor in chief of marvel comics later, it's publisher and chairman leading is expansion from small division of publishing house to a large multi media corporation. He co create fiction no characters including Spiderman the hulk. Doctor strange the fantastic four the X men, and what his brother Cole writer. Larry the characters and men are men and four. Okay. First of all when you think of then Lee, where do you thoughts, take you? What is your favorite character for? I think we grew up in the same generation where there wasn't a lot of we they didn't have the internet. And so, you know, we sort of got our entertainment by reading comic books what what Stanley did was actually to create an entire realm of Mathon. Policy because that's what cultures need and they need new ones all the time. And he came at the right time to do that at the time. The comic books were were quite popular. But they've sort of lacked something in that was sort of human quality. There was mostly about science fiction and awesome superpowers there. No human interests in it, and he didn't in self exactly create this. But he created an atmosphere moaning his artists and creative people in which he made the the characters sort of identifiably human finding how identified well. For example, if you are a superhero, and like Spiderman, and you are a young guy that goes going to college, and you're fighting crime at night, you're gonna have a lot of personal problems in your own life because you won't be like, you're staying up all night, fighting criminals, and you can't get your grades up. So you have to stay up all night to finish your homework, and you're gonna be tired of the next day. And if you try to make dates with women than your they're going to suddenly. Even suddenly bad guys going to appear. You're gonna have to go off and fight them..

"Big stories on the daybreak writer, editor Christine Burke, joins us around the table. So Trump's now waiting Don Kavanagh's, Trump had a ninety minute press conference at the rose garden yesterday and the subject of Brett Kavanagh's drinking habits, and whether or not he misled or even lied to a Senate panel last week when he downplayed his alcohol use that came into question, and what Trump had to say was that look Kavanagh's testimony shows that yes, he has had a little bit of trouble with alcohol, but he noted that he believes that Cavanaugh has been unusually forthcoming and talking about his issues. Now, the president did completely dodge a question about whether or not concerns about alcohol abuse will play a factor in a bright Kavanagh's nomination to the supreme court bench. But I think the bigger issue here is that the concerns around cabinet nomination. I mean, of course, people are concerned about the sexual allegations of sexual assault again. Against him. But the wider issue is now becoming whether or not Kavanagh's actually, a truthful man, and whether or not he's a credible candidate to hold. The supreme court bench was almost like day after day we take a new direction can we pivot to banks which is the core of what we do. Standard Chartered take a pasting in the London market. Yes. The close the fine could be much bigger than we thought overrun. And that's what's earth the market. Yes. So people familiar have said that initial assessment showed that standard could face a penalty of one point five billion dollars from the US over violations of Iran sanctions now, these are really into violations from at least five years ago in are specifically related at least, according to one person familiar to whether Standard Chartered allowed Iranian-linked entities to move money through Dubai unit. Nausea said that one point five billion much larger than was expected and Instagram has a new boss has the void been filled them. Well, this new boss. His name is Adam Assyrian. He is a longtime Facebook veteran. He's been with the company something like ten years. He's known to be Zuckerberg ally he will take over as the head of Instagram after the original founders left. Remember that was a story that emerged last week. These founders were just reportedly experiencing some tension was October over the future of Instagram. So we have a Facebook veteran now in the post. Okay. Thank you very much Christine. With the very latest on daybreak agenda. Why be talking about the pilots spike briefly after Bloomberg reported that the UK Prime Minister Theresa may is prepared to offer an important you've Brexit concession two windy with the European Union. Sources inside the government tell us that it covers the so-called backstop to ensure an open border and Edwards joins us not from the conservative party conference in Birmingham. So this is the backstop. This could potentially be the unlocking of the difference between Theresa May's checkers proposal and the EU. What do we know? Yeah. Good morning Seamount in Yousef. He hasn't seen. This is all around the backs off the story that we reported yesterday moved to pound and gilt markets, but we'll have the support of a very crucial part of the government's infrastructure. If you like, and that is the dean or partners to the government because the UP essentially props up, the UK conservative party. It's UK conservative parties conference that I'm out here in Birmingham. And we're going to be speaking to only foster a little bit later on that. She leads the dean will she go for this? Because this potentially puts in place in further checks over the North Sea something that she is. So we in the past she is not going to tolerate so we'll see whether why is it. That's reason would see this is not breaking up the UK. But owning take a different view. We will get to that. We'll also be hearing Boris Johnson later on. It's decision time for him. Does he want to lead the party the former foreign secretary he speaks at around one o'clock today at a fringe event. He's not invited to speak on the main stage. We had a cabinet minister of cabinet minister yesterday defending Theresa May and defending her. Brexit. The Boris Johnson will be trying to rally the troops around his vision of break says is he going to manage to do that? Or is his start fading as perhaps the window of opportunity to lead the party closes as we get closer to March of next year. That's going to be a big focus for us. We're going to be speaking on that subject to here's to the man who succeeded him as foreign secretary. And that is Jeremy hunt's he will be joining us a little bit later. Later on this morning. He said. I'm not to look forward to as always. Thank you very much for that analyst chicken quickly on what's happening with these markets in Asia Equity session, that's under pressure.

British reality show did you hear this No I haven't heard about that they say that damaging to, the reputation, of the royals so they've put out an edict saying in America if. You wanna do that, because I think her half. Sister is up for some American reality. Show but they say as far as great British television is concerned they won't have it good for I. Mean listen that's okay Not everybody needs to be on a reality. Show right I think ultimately. There right get something that. Megan Markle do and she. Was getting into royalty is, that her tire life would. Change forever and ultimately it is, going, to change your family's forever, and, it's it's kind of, nice that the other.

Still define it as a source of wit cultural commentary and intervene source of laughs in. Our contemporary media landscape and throughout its history the women. Who've John cartoons for the magazine have shaped its voice and tone as much as anyone a new exhibit at the society of illustrators, on east sixty third street in Manhattan. Is celebrating the role and contributions of women cartoonists staff the magazine it's called funny ladies at the New Yorker. Cartoonists then and now it was curated by LIZA Donnelly who is drawn cartoons for the magazine for For over three decades she's joining us. Now with felony yorker cartoonists the think and Carolina Johnson who all have work in the exhibition there's also, an event tonight that will tell you that in a. Minute welcome all of you to WNYC today thank you and let me just dive right. Into an example of one of the cartoons in the exhibit and then, we'll pull back and talk about the larger context a cartoon by Ethel Plummer from the very first issue of the New Yorker from nineteen twenty five it shows a. Man and a woman looking at a sign that says the wages of sin with a drawing of a woman in a provocative position on it and the dialogue. As they look at the sign the wages of sin uncle poor girls so few get. Their wages flapper so few get their sin dynamic so. Lies it tell us a little on you're not gonna ask me to analyze the cartoon Well just put it in. The context of the time of nineteen twenty four yeah Ethel was the, first cartoonist as a woman for the magazine and I guess it was a very modern, era for women nineteen in the nineteen twenties you, now they just got, in, the vote. In nineteen twenty and there were. Women coming out and getting jobs, if they could and and being sort of. Free flapper like. And I think this woman's comment Militates that and so we'll sample a few more? Cartoons, as we go but lies I'll stay. With, you you've noted that a big challenge that women cartoonists have to face. In. The early days of the New Yorker and in other publications, in the early twentieth century was having to open up a discussion in a male dominated industry proving they quote had a sense of humor sometimes still say women aren't funny could you talk about this dynamic in the historical context of the New Yorker oh I. Hope they still don't say that Well I think that cultural taboo was that women didn't have a. Sense of humor and they were supposed to laugh at at men's jokes so I think it was very forward thinking, of held roster bringing he was looking for the best talent, the city has. To offer and some of those artists were were women and I think he? Just, brought in who he thought was good Yeah Carolina Eliana have, you had to, encounter you know some form of this societal. Notion, that, women aren't funny having to prove it in a different way than a male in your field Kelly yeah I remember an editor telling. Me that all my cartoons were relationship cartoons which I didn't think was true at all like night actually told them I said no. All the cartoons that you buy from me. Our relationship cartoons I submit quite a lot of different subjects so Right I found that as. Well Same same thing oh I think that humor was. In Was invented by man not like shaped by Matt chicken, defined by men. And. Pop culture sensibilities of, humor yeah and there are different maybe different things that someone who's had the life experience, of a woman would find funny and those things haven't been accepted into the culture..

That data's already gone so what should a company be doing That most of them are not at the moment to try and counter that unfortunately they're not identifying the significant dependence on connection to the internet or they significant dependence on. Energy those two things are the critical things they. Don't have backup plans they don't have systems that are unconnected that they can bring in they don't. Look at other companies to help service and even from, other countries there's no contingency that the very, severe losses that all of our government security agencies no can happen so it means companies are not able to.
