"Editor full-time a you know like a film editor. We have someone running up physical production of our studio over physical studio et cetera. So i was able to keep all of our people on salary and I've raised over. I've raised over two and a half million dollars from space command. Since i've started being spacecom entirely my fans via kickstarter campaigns and seven investment shares of seventy five hundred bucks each and so so but the interesting thing was i realized that because everyone will stuck a moment going crazy gnarly because so many of my actors are so well known and so busy of. They're not available. It's very difficult to give them all together at one time but they were all sitting at home. You know just climbing walls because all the studios everything at shut down so i had. I came up with idea where elaine wrote a bonus to our episode space command that are actors pitching in their own homes with their own cameras so they could save but We shot the first three hours in space. Command recorded an audio prequel. But i but i had already worked out most of the for season. And i knew where all all this was going. And they're a bunch of characters. I hadn't yet introduced i. We would be so armee. Shimin christina moses in so many. Jj hurts so many actors that which is waiting and wings and now they were home so by by doing this. Two hour episode allowed me to introduce a lot of people like barbara bain. Space nineteen ninety nine is in spacemen. Now emeals grass tyson. It's an of riches. So why are episode and Our entire visual effects bag of tricks. For instance wait a scene between one of our characters who's based in atlanta. An actress meghan a castle access to play his daughter and she was in scotch one and we managed to put them together in the same living room. Even though they both starred in their own homes and were never actually politically together and so a very very fun and And then in the meantime i finished a new book called lighting yourself which is basically how people don't have to rely on the studios or the networks even the publishing houses to make their dreams come true how the internet and having video cameras in our pockets and all of that allows everyone to sort of as i say light yourself so i just finished that book and sent it off my publisher and yeah we. We didn't slowdown during the pendency. Ramped up and we're busier than ever. It's elaine. And i just celebrated our forty fourth anniversary and we write direct produce together. And it's it's a dream come true. So i'm i have no complaints and our people are all very very well healthy. Sadly mira furlan. Who was one of our test in space men who i worked with on babylon five passed away from west nile virus all things not covert and that was really a great loss and she was amazing actress in your soul. And i'm glad that we got to have her in space command as much as we did because she was kim come true. I watched some of that before online. Some of that two hour special and that there are some names in and michelle nichols was in there. Yes yes i mean. It's insane the cast. You've assembled in pristina. Moses who's on a million little things on abc currently and she plays sues daughter in the star trek episode. i did with decay. And that was her first tv role ever and she's just phenomenal and she'll be continuing in space man and also in in magic time another one of my projects and So yeah yeah. And but the now we're ramping up to do the show runners network where i'm creating six series with the creators of Farscape and the expanse and defiance and on and on. And i'm ansa doing six shows including a rod sterling series really. It's an amazing time. Yeah yes we can we can talk about. All of these. Various things is that. Is that news out there. Mark of of i got a bit of an exclusive. Can we talk about that. Why negotiations with the states. What's not lockdown. But ninety i came up with a wild. Oh which was. It's called rod sterling sampler twilight and Basically rod as you. I'm sure you know dictated all of his. Everything's script sledders folks. Everything he lounge by his swimming pool in the backyard in the morning and he'd have a little recorder any would dictate everything into the recorder. Secretary would type it up. And he'd make him directions and it was up at all of these according were lost for decades and they just discovered a thousand hours of them. In a couple of archives podge archives and so my idea was to create a new show that would be narrated by rod sterling from that material plus is a number scripts that either never got made with throwing road or or written during the live. Tv era the no one has seen since then and this would be primarily fantasy science fiction horror at plus media scripts from the others violates on writers that were not made and scripts by a new generation of writers. You know people. Like neil gaiman jemison again. We haven't we haven't earned that. But that's my idea and joe dougherty who was executive producer. I'm pretty little liars and won an emmy for thirty. something is aboard on that project with me. So he's an old friend and so i've been in communication with the ruling stayed and with their representatives. And we'll see if we can make that happen but it's definitely project i want to do and So we'll see but that's right now. It's on the list. The thing is you know this. The jordan peele twilight zone came out. And i and i really enjoyed it. But it was quite divisive with fans i think. Sometimes people find it hard to accept a new twilight zone. Dante without rod serling is also difficult because rod. Sterling really was irreplaceable. There's only one of him. And and then the writing staff he got he got three of ray. Bradbury's proteges sign. Henry were friends and ray recommended charles. Beaumont richard matheson and george clayton. Johnson also came aboard to and they became the core of that amazing writing team. That created twilights. Earl ham also came aboard. He played on the waltons falcon crest but he was a very different kind of writer. He was much more rural and was matheson. Beaumont george clayton johnson which is tackler a science fiction fantasy writers and And so they just. I mean it was just a match made in heaven and so you know. I won't script for the twilight zone. Will they brought it back in the eighties. That was an amazing writing. Staff was harlan ellison allen george martin michael tacit and so forth astray strong writing staff but very hidden this you know and the scripted i wrote. We will week away from web. Doug hayes was directed. He direct is beholden howling man many great episodes and and sensors pull the plug on it because they felt it was too hard. Edged is called nine avail. So that's one of the strips. We're going to be shooting on if rod sterling after twilight Another ost by lights on script. That i'm i'm very proud of tv sack off. Wanted to do it a few years ago and so we'll see what we what we do with it. But it'll be fun. It'll be very fun. It sounds amazing. Because i think it will probably be a lot more palatable for those people who just can't accept a modern twilight zone. This is kind of somewhere in between isn't it. You know it's it's still got.

"It's basically just to give people um, a supportive place in Hollywood assured Well, even if they're not in Hollywood, the town you know, it's just basically created a showbiz industry. That has humanity at its core and kindness and And so many people get so defeated by the arrogance of Hollywood or or they can't get an agent, or they can't get a manager. They can't get anyone to read their script. And what I've been applying the last few years in building my own studio and creating space command and all of these things they've been doing. I thought nobody teaches that there's no book You can get on how you can basically green light yourself. But now, thanks to the Internet and thanks to computers and thinks the fact that we all have video cameras, high quality video cameras in our pocket You know the barriers. It's no longer up to the studios or the networks are the major publishing houses. What gets out to the world? You can reach millions of people. If you just have something that people will find interesting and And so I wanted to share step by step what I had done and also a number of my friends. Unfortunately, J. J. Abrams and Neil Gaiman and Guillermo del Toro and you know we re bribery. Of course, they all have told me stories that were about how they built their careers and how they Recovered from failure and how they you know, were supported and mentored by others. And fortunately and my friend run more who runs for all mankind. The TV show on Apple now. Uh, they were all kinds enough when I reached out and said, Well, you know, you told me this great story about your career. Um privately. But can I share it with with my readers, and they all said yes. And And it was just great and So this is sort of like everything I've learned over. Over 40 years of my career. I've been a professional writer since I was 19 and and I just It's you know, it's not a mystery. But the problem is that so many people are told what you've got to have a great script or you. You need an agent in order to make it and none of that is true. You just needed to say what do I want to share with the world? What comes from my heart? And and you know, it's a conversation between union and the world. As just as you know, because people can certainly understand. I mean, the reason you're successful, Georges because you're authentic, and people can listen to the show, and they know what you're passionate about. And they know who you are, and and and what people have to understand you. You don't have to hide who you are to succeed as an artist. You know you you have to The authentic and honest and straightforward and people will get that. And if you come from passion and enthusiasm and and honesty and genuine quality people will respond. Ray Bradbury passed away nine years ago at the age of 91 Tell us a little bit about him. He was He was one of a kind. He was phenomenal. I longed For him to be my friend and mentor for many, many years decades and I'd given up on that, And then one day he came across something I had created and he loved it And he called me and he said, You must come to the house and I came and we just hit it off and so then for over 10 years Once a month, I would go to his house, and we just sit and talk about career and life and art, and he'd invite me to these plays. He was putting on plays of his work. At that point, I always of course, brought a book for him to sign one of his books and And he was so wonderful, And the interesting thing is like heard, um, that he and Rod certainly had had a falling out. And that was why he only wrote one episode of Twilight when he was originally going to be one of the major writers on the show, And neither he nor Rod would talk about it publicly. And in fact, when I tried to interview him for the Twilight Zone companion, he declined. And finally, when we became very close friends I said, Okay, Ray, tell me what happened between you and Rod and he told me And and so I have a video on Mr Sci Fi. Where I say Okay, I'm gonna tell you what the story that they told me and it's an amazing story. It takes 30 minutes for me to tell it. And it's on my Mr Sci Fi Channel. But he basically talked about how basically it was neither one of them was at fault. It was just kind of like where they came to a parting of the ways. Have twilights and would not have been what it was without Ray Bradbury because his three proteges Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont, and George Clayton Johnson forms the core of the writing team on Twilight Zone. And that was thanks to Ray, and they were unable, broad and right to get together. Uh, at the end, they just had a falling out it was, you know, I go into it in detail, but it was mainly just that. It was just kind of cross purposes. You know, Um, Rod was incredibly busy and so certain things he'd said Ray, um, kind of fell through the cracks. It was. It was like falling out falling out that anyone can have. They were both wonderful people. And I'm very, very glad I got to, uh, to get to know race so well, And he trusted me with that story. And and my God, there was so many piece of advice he gave me that were invaluable. And they're they're in the green lighting yourself book. You know, I talk about that at length in the book. Good for you and people can get this book now. Is it out? It's not out yet. I've sent the manuscript by public publisher Silman James. It'll be out, you know, in a few months And so if people just kind of, you know, go on to Amazon or whatever you know they'll be able to find it ultimately, and I think they'll really benefit from it. What's your favorite Twilight Zone episode? Well, my favorite is walking distance because that's about a man who goes back into the past of his childhood to try to reclaim that childhood. And it was raised. It was right, throwing fitting personal favorite because during the war, he was a paratrooper. And even when the war was winding down, his father died very suddenly of a heart attack at age 52. He wants to go home to the funeral. He was overseas. And the Army wouldn't let him go. You know, the Army Air Corps and, uh and so he never got to say goodbye to his dad. And so that episode really is about him going back home and finally being able to say goodbye to his father. And it was. It was very personal for Rod, and, uh, it's just amazing piece of writing. I mean, there's so many great twilight Zone episodes. I mean, you know, you can't really go wrong if you say the one with Burgess MEREDITH Ways the last man on earth or Housing man or, you know to serve man them, you know, stop at Willoughby. You know, there's this. It's just love the ball, which is to serve man That was a classic two. That's a great episode. Absolutely. And that was written by one of my teachers. Damon Knight Rook short story that that episode was based on and He was my teacher. When I was 19 years old. He bought my first short story, and they all had that ending that really special ending, didn't they? Yes. And Rod would say that he if he knew the ending, he knew he was okay. But he said he had so many ideas where you could get the beginning and the middle and could not come up with the ending. And those never, of course, got on the air. But if he had the ending, he could. He knew where he was going, and he could write incredibly fast when he did. It's the hitchhiker the episode with English Stevens, which is an adaptation of a radio in my way. Yeah, he wrote that episode eight hours. Wow, That's amazing. Incredibly fast Mark. We're going to take a quick break. We're going to come back and chat more with you and take phone calls and our final hour just ahead on coast to coast. They always on your.

"May Yet Close to a year later, progress has been slow. Last month, the House passed the George Floyd Justice and Policing Act in a close vote, with zero support from Republicans. It heads to the Senate next, and even with Democrats and control, it's expected to be an uphill battle. My conversations with the Floyd family. I spoke to him again today. I sure that we're going to continue to fight for the passage that George Florida Justice and Policing Act. So I consign law as quickly as possible for more on federal police reform legislation in Washington. We're joined now by representative Barbara Lee of California's 13th District. Congresswoman. Great to have you with us. Nice being with you, Rebecca. Thank you very much. How comprehensive is the George Floyd Justice and Policing Act? Thank you. It's very comprehensive. And let me tell you First of all the verdict. With regard to Mr Floyd. It's It's really cracked. Open the door to accountability. But true justice is a world in which this never would have happened to Mr Floyd or to countless others. And S O. The George Floyd Justice and Policing Act is a major step forward. Of course, it does not addressed all of these structural and systemic issues as it relates to structural racism. But I just have to tell you, I believe that if the bill had been made law had been signed into effect, we would have saved many, many lives. And, uh, it's you know, a very sad thought and moment to think that Republicans in the house did not vote for it, Not one, but I have a lot of hope, because I know Congresswoman Karen Bass. She's a good friend, Senator Booker, Senator Scott and they're working day and night, trying to reach some form of bipartisan agreement so that this could move forward and be on the president's desk very soon. Congresswoman. Let's break down a few of the things this legislation would do. The bill would ban choke, holds and and qualified immunity, which often shields police from some lawsuits. Or are these sweeping reforms or more incremental? Well, I think in many ways they are sweeping reforms. But, of course again, As I said, we have a lot of work to do to address the structural and underlying issues. But when you look at the fact that If a police officer hurts a kill someone they should not have immunity from lawsuits they currently do. That's a sweeping reform banning the use of Chuck chokeholds. I mean, can you imagine anyone, especially Republicans, saying we should allow chuckles that Zoe's sweeping reform When you look at the fact that we're asking that we not allow the transfer of weapons of war to police departments, that's a sweeping reform. Also, it's really important to understand. And a lot of people don't even know that we don't have a national database. So that the public at Police Department has really see who these officers are, and whether or not they're corrupt, dangerous or abusive again. That's a sweeping reform and in these sound like measures that should have been in place in law already, but they're not. And so this is an important bill. It's a Build that. We must pass. It's a must pass bill. And so I have to just say I'm very Cautiously optimistic that it's going to get done because we have some really strategic committed individuals who are formed the negotiation team right now it's informal, but I believe that these are going to become more formalized as the days go back. You mentioned the database. That's the national police misconduct registry that's being proposed. Can you tell us a little bit more about the aim of that? Sure, First of all, uh, we need to be able to, um know about an officer's history of disciplinary action on and that needs to be recorded in an accessible database and that would allow it. We know that some officers moved from one department to another from one city to another to avoid accountability. And it's important to have this database too. Include the use of force and traffic stops that required again. The database requires collection analysis and release of data to track Individuals such as this, and so that's the way to prevent abusive police officers corrupt and dangerous police officers from quite frankly killing people, especially African Americans. Congresswoman, As you may know, Many progressive activists actually oppose this bill because they say anything short of overhauling the entire system isn't enough and I'll use New York is an example. The NYPD banned the use of choke holds in the 19 nineties and That didn't stop in officer from killing Eric Garner with a choke hold 20 years later. So what's your response to that? Well, my response to that is, uh, it may not go far enough. I voted for it. I'm a progressive and I understand the realities we see right now, with this very of Good bill that establishes the national standard. The mandates data collection re programs existing funds for community based police and streamlining the federal law to prosecute excessive force. We know But these are good measures, and that This would begin to help address the systemic issues. I want to see a systemic racism, destructor racism, uh, dismantled within our criminal justice system and every other, you know system in our country. On. So the political realities are we've got to get this passed and it may not go far enough. Many agree it doesn't But we have to start somewhere to save lives, and this will save black and brown lives. So people like Gina Clayton Johnson and attorney and activists say black and Brown folks have organized and help elect Democrats to office in the hope that lawmakers will deliver on a commitment to race, justice and equality. So Congresswoman when Democrats like you are up for re election. Will you be able to look voters like Lyndon Johnson in the eye and say This bill is the best we could do? Absolutely, and let me tell you First. I just have to say she's right. Black and Brown people elected Democrats to Congress, the House and the Senate as well as the White House. And so there's accountability there. This require and again. You young people, people who are protesting peacefully in the streets. In many respects, they are pushing the envelope to make sure that police reform Becomes a reality in this country as well as dismantling systemic racism. When you look at what the composition of the Senate and again I get very frustrated myself because Democrats have the House, the Senate and the White House. But members of the Senate members of the House come from different district's and the political dynamics around. This is such that we have to go in and again. I have to salute Congresswoman, Bass, Senator Booker and Senator Scott because they're trying. They're trying very hard. But if they had, if it's this difficulty to bring Republicans around so we can get Bill. Imagine what if we didn't have Those individuals, especially, you know the margin in the Senate being so fragile, But we do have you know two additional senators. But it's so tight. It's so close until we have to push the envelope as far as we can push it or do nothing. And I don't especially like incremental change because enough is enough, and the time is now. So at this point with the political composition of the Senate and in the house, and it was a difficult bill to get through the house. Also, it's either we act on something or nothing. And I have to say we have to keep our movement going, though I political movement and hold members of Congress accountable at the battle box, and I'm certainly willing and I come from a very enlightened and progressive district and I'm willing to stand before my constituents and say I did everything I could do to save black and brown lives. From police murders and police misconduct. I did everything I could do to hold police accountable and to increase transparency. You know, I did everything I could do to make sure the police officers I don't consider themselves above the law. I'll tell them I did everything I could do to ban the use of choke holes. And I will hope that they would vote for me because they know I'm fighting for them. And I'm gonna keep fighting until true. Justice is done. And I, uh, yeah. You know, as much as I don't again as a progressive, incremental change for me, and I've been in this Battle on my life for Justin and I would just say I'm still standing to fight for another day. But I hope and I recognize that I salute our young people, especially who really did help bring us a democratic majority. By their unbelievable voter registration, voter engagement and get out the vote efforts, and that's a fact..

"Stanley, with their podcast thoughts on the market, offering concise takes on current events and other implications for financial markets three minutes and episode five times a week. Thoughts on the market. It's a 22. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King, and I'm Steve Inskeep bill that passed the House of Representatives responds to demands for police reform. George Floyd. Justice in Policing Act is a federal measure. It creates a national registry of cops with unclean records. It also offers money as incentive to local police. Improve training or band chokeholds. Mainstream civil rights groups support this bill. Yet the offer of more money for police is a big reason that a group called the Movement for Black Lives, opposes the bill. The Justice and Policing Act is a bill that Entrenches over $900 million of funding to policing and incarceration. Gina Clayton Johnson is executive director of the S E Justice Group. She is one of the architects of the counter proposal called the Breathe Act. Comparing her bill to the one that passed gives us a snapshot of the debate on the left over policing. She argues that the proposals in the House bill had been tried already. Body cameras and police training. You know these air things that we know actually do very little to keep black people safe at the hands of police violence. You mean they've been tried on the state and local level and they just haven't made a difference in your view. You know, I'm thinking about things like the chokehold band. This is something that was in effect in New York when Eric Garner died. I think we believe that there are Multitude of ways of evidence based ways to approach this issue that do work as I looked at the bill that passed the house and looked at your proposal. I thought about them as different In this way. The bill that passed the house seems to say we offer you more resource is if you do the right thing. Incentives for banning choke holds, for example. But I think your approach is that police should just get less money. Is that a fair summary? If you've only read Section one of four, you know, there's more. I know there's more which we're going to discuss, but you start there that police they're just they're over resources. No, it's fair. It's fair to say that we start there because it's really important for us to understand that we didn't just accidentally Find our way into being a world the world's leader in incarcerating people, right? We didn't just find our way into accidentally having this heinous and horrendous and horrific crisis of police killing in black communities and a black people. We funded our way there. And so what we do actually is, yes, Absolutely. We roll back. The resource is that have gone to underwriting mass incarceration and our criminal legal. System, But we also provide grants and incentives and the majority over 90% of this bill is actually grant funding. What is a practical way that a neighborhood that statistically is unsafe? Could be safer with fewer police patrolling it. Sure, so we provide Incentives so federal dollars for localities to get rid of their money bill practices, for example, to eradicate a money bail paradigm would mean that We would be addressing a huge issue of economic disparity that is impacting black people, acutely and particularly black women. And what we know is that Economic distress is a contributor to what leads people to the kinds of things that end up being criminalized and Land people behind bars and so getting rid of something like a money Bail program would allow a state to be competitive for a grant, which they then they could use to invest in. Affordable housing or or mental health programs for low income women, or, you know a variety of things we actually provide. Ah, huge number of possibilities and for localities to Describe and prescribe what it is that they would like the investments to be as long as they are non carcela non punitive. There are people who say defund the police and what they mean has reduced the police budget. There are people who say abolish the police. Where you on that? The breathe Act absolutely provides for avenues towards safety that rely entirely on community care infrastructure. I was just reading about 30% of incarcerated people in California have a mental health diagnosis. We have Ah, huge issue in which we're not treating people we are criminalizing them. And so if we Again, Tonto. Imagine a world in which we deal with underlying issues that people in need have that we could actually find our way towards the safety outcomes that we're looking for. Does the world in which you imagine still include a role for conventional old style police. For me. Personally, I am fighting for a world in which we can make policing obsolete. And I believe that that is possible on D I know that it will take maybe years to get there. Gina Clayton Johnson is the executive director of the S E. Justice Group. Thanks so much. Thank you.

In a scientific sense, you are the pack leader, meaning you are a pack leader Noel at your home there, But in Oregon State University study suggests that family dogs also take cues. From the smaller members of the pack. They are synchronizing their behavior with the Children to an extent that is higher than one would expect from chance, meaning that when their child is walking or orienting in particular direction, the dogs are matching This professor Monique, you del led the study, her team would bring a child and their dog into a large, wide open arena. We have tape on the floor with various marks in different colors that indicate whether the child should be walking slowly walking, quickly stopping or changing direction. We're really interested in what the dog freely chooses to do in this situation. The dogs freely chose to stick with their kids. No matter the breed. Scientifically speaking, this seems to mean your dog loves your kid. Now. Dogs do tend to mirror they're adults more closely than Children. But Monique you Del thinks that's because a dull Let's just do more of the caretaking. And we think that there is great potential to improve this bond between Children and dogs by encouraging Children to take more responsibility for caretaking activities and also give them opportunities to train their dogs.

As a few months ago was still going on. I need to. I need to update myself on that but faye dunaway. Who were them. We're going back to the albert brooks conversation.

Data doesn't go away is what they say to ask you a question and then say stop chattering whenever you start answering it. It's so funny. I guess are using that more often like asking you to stop chattering stop chattering. I was just seeing. If there was any sort of interview with faye dunaway. were like. That's a word that she uses like and things. I can't find one but that definitely seems like like a fe as or something like that even though it was stoutly call stop chattering.

Which explains if you're into jazz. Because he grew up around it but he literally grew up because so many people in his family where musicians but like we said he went to juilliard which really helps explain why he's performed with so many people i was google imaging him and i found him with the same. I was dating one. Because i google i google image him. I mean if it's who we have to talk about like if they're because like we always have if they are dating we must. I found the same person in all these photos. And i was like not to jump to conclusions but it seems like this might be his girlfriend turns out of this his girlfriend and she's sort of like pseudo famous. She's not really a who but she's notable who i would call gianbattista who this person who not the same. But she's notable her name asuka jawad. She's a writer. Actually remember comes out next year. And i saw that lizzie. Gilbert lizzy gobert loved it lizzie over it. Got the lizzy. Gobert seal of approval says this is a deeply moving and passionate work of art. Quite unlike anything. I've ever read. I will remember these stories for years to come because silica jawad has imprinted them upon my heart. That's like imagine wanting a better blurb so okay so she wrote this memoir about how she survived like a terminal cancer diagnosis when she was in her twenties and so now she's like a motivational speaker and she goes on the radio and talks about like what she learned from her. Brush with death. She did a tedtalk. That's very popular and famous. She launched some thing that got kind of popular at the beginning of the pandemic called the isolation journals. I went to the website. It's like a fully fleshed out blog slash website slash newsletter where she like speaks about isolation and loneliness in this way that's connected to the pandemic so it's like you have these two very creative people who were in this honestly very new yorkie cutie relationship I love a call just opens the door to to people. I'd never heard of 'cause. I don't really want to the late show and i never really. I wouldn't have been able to name this guy by nine. That's how i actually remembered him. I was like oh.

"It says right in the call. I don't want google so i'm like okay. This person is a who like the caller said because their company is not powerful cheese code. Exactly it's chico. The answer is right in front of me if you are a who. There's probably a very explicit and detailed bio of you somewhere. I bet you that this company is lazy and just pulled it from something. They googled and so i just typed in stevie wonder prince. Willie nelson lenny kravitz appalachian chase and then at the end. Grammy nominated and guess what i fucking found numb almost near the top google result. John batiste because somewhere on some website on the internet he gave someone a bio and the bio was all of that ship. Right and i was like. Oh it's him. I'm kate spade at his co. chat. I found all the stuff that he's appeared. And yes he is a fucking musician. He's a jazz musician. He is the bandleader on the late. Show the teams. He's played with so many musicians for because he's this extremely classically trained musician. Who played every co bears bandleader for a good amount of time. Yeah so i was like oh god this is a stupid. I spent an hour looking this and it was the easiest thing in the world and that makes more sense than nick makes much more sense. It's true yes it's so job. Tees up play some of his music here. It is gotta say stunning so enjoy.

"Cool. Did a lot of members lot of members lot a lot of people so clayton was only in it for a couple of years. He was brought onto the guitarist. He's sort of like if we're talking about a classical handsome norms. He's the hottest one of all of them will he. They gave him the like kind of haircut to fit in with them but he clearly is a honk gave him the haircut to fit in with them to sort of like flat iron bangs with ski sides and sort of like feathered everything really weird very specific and they gave him that haircut and his like hungriness seemed to reject it like million the photos. You can tell him. There is definitely revolting playing the guitar in the background he left. I think literally a year after he joined because he wanted to start a thing with another guy from there. That went nowhere called black. And i'm gonna play this. Listen to this clip. I loved the description of this clip. That i found black because not much context from black. It's a failed little side project but the description. I found an interview with this website. Buzz net and buzz net is interviewing clayton. And who was the other guy. Some something Brian maddox talking about black and the description is last week. Michael danny vitale. And i interviewed the music. Do a black. It was so much fun being able to interview the guys in black considering. Brian is my boyfriend. Clayton his brother. This this is black first interview since leaving their old band stereo skyline. Hope you enjoy be sure to check out there. I'm using music. I mean the only black is recognized in band is b. l. a. q. u. e. Sorry yes they're the only ones lack nice. You can't be b. L. a. c. No no you are you. You're the hell out of here. I feel like the last thing we need to say about. This person is when. I posted the video on who yesterday and tweeted the the video. Someone who doesn't follow weekly the tweet and re tweeted it with a quote honestly. It's an upgrade from the men. She dated before which is true. That's what i'm saying. It's like i we. Have you know as lana fans who think a lot about her and like her music but are very confused by everything else she does in her live the mash mask etc the office yet but also the not understanding black lives matter notes app. She posted earlier this year. And all of that and it's we're we're always looking for like who's the real lana. What's the truth. Because she's kind of a nick ma right but like i guess ultimately what we always come back to us that she's like super nor me like her kind of taste and her aesthetic and her whatever like even though she put on this kind of like pinup girl five she always like it makes sense for her to live in southern california and data guy from modesto himmy like this kind of basic studio guitarist with pop punk history. Make all make sense like really really makes sense. Okay so this is future bobby. I couldn't actually end with that. Because while i was looking up. More footage of this guy clayton. I was like what's the earliest instance of these to being mentioned together. And i guess fans had put together. They were dating before the media. Did you know there are very good at finding photos and like connecting the dots so at some point it seems like lana stan's emailed this youtube tarot person who goes by clear path guidance and tarot on youtube. And they asked how lana del rey and clayton. Johnson's relationship is going if it would last and this person made a thirteen minute long video about it and here's a clip. I mean spoiler alert. They don't think it's gonna last. Hello everybody and welcome to clear path. Guidance and tarot. I'm gonna do update on land delray and clayton. I've had a few people email me wanting update on them. They are now. I guess dating i did a couple of ratings on them and Never felt anything going on. I don't know if it's because there wasn't and right now it's starting up. There was my dog every time i start doing video. He does this. So i don't know if i just don't feel that there's a connection here between the two of them I'm surprised that they're dating. I have gone online to see pictures of the tool of the. I can't find anything between the two of the high who weekly I have a little holiday time mystery for you So i work for a company in the us that is having some sort of grim and nominated person in for virtual holiday party. And we're not a big company so it's definitely a who and we've been provided clues so that we can slough out who it is I'm really bad at googling. And you're really good at googling. Might like to try to figure out who it is As like a fun little guessing game. Okay so the clues. We received two so far. Are it's a grammy nominated special. Surprise guests They've performed with the greats. Such as stevie wonder prince. Willie nessin nelson lenny kravitz and edgier in and they've been featured in ad campaigns for chase bank apple. Watch kate spade and coach to name a few anyways I would love if you could use your powers for good and helped me figure out who this who who is in advance of our holiday celebrations. So i can decide whether it's worth than multiple hours all right. Thanks bye crunch crunch. This call came in. I was like. I'm in national treasure. This is my moment. I have to find out who this person is like. This is such a fun game. I know you got on immediately. Like i didn't even hear this call and you'd already kind of started sleuthing who it is but then there was a twist. The caller provides all this information right. It's like grammy nominated stevie wonder prance willie. Nelson lenny kravitz. Ed sheeran. that's a weird variety of people by any on run. Any of a one off performance blah blah blah blah nominated. I thought was very important. So then like campaigns for kate spade apple watch coach. Okay so my gendered sexist brain is like it must be a woman so i start looking up ad campaigns i because i was like the number of people that they have performed with this too broad for me to really like find a needle in that. Haystack someone start with the ad campaigns. So i started looking at ad. Campaigns for apple watch like apple watch doesn't do many celebrities. I found a couple of that was like every apple. Watch commercial ever. I was watching it. And i see.

"Bobby a boy. I went to high school with is engaged to lana del rey I couldn't believe it when i saw the headline on page six He was the cutest boy in school. He played water polo though She was like a puppy dog. Like a golden retriever. But he was so nice And i'm really really happy for him and for lana I sure that he makes her very happy surmounted. But it's pretty funny to think of her hanging out with his family in modesto california literally the armpit of the world Good point bella. Thorne and who. The fuck is clayton. Johnson and wire here in london. That seems weird is know the top high. I just got out sorry long long. Time too distracted. But i just got an email from us weekly. That long ago raised engaged with them winning clean. Johnson and i scream because i went to youth group with him And i had no idea that he was standing on adult right He's an he wasn't army but he was definitely very hot and youth group. I think it seems like he moved to. La is musician. But i definitely had a crush on him and knew him as a team. And i feel i just. It's not interesting. I just had to call you by you. Know all right so we honestly don't even doing anything further like this guy is hot. This guy is nor me and this guy is allegedly according to us weekly us weekly is confirming it which is crazy us weekly us. We can confirm these two are engaged because a source told us. Even though lana del rey has not commented or said anything about it and then the other websites are all saying like allegedly allegedly allegedly but like e. news is saying according to people according to us weekly. She's engaged so like i don't really understand how they must have a very solid source because i'm just saying like they're saying the coffee tale like they started dating in august when they fall each other on instagram. Or something and maybe they. We think they met on updating app. We think we think they on riot which araya tracks and now. She's wearing a a ring on her ring finger. Which like some be. I'm like that doesn't mean you're engaged. But i guess like they've they've confirmed i think it means they're engaged the way she wore the ring. She wore the ring for attention like she grabs the mike because she was on jimmy fallon show and perform a song grabbing the mic. With the rang the photo of her sort of like doing bird wings where she's like. Ea and her hands behind her Everything's intentional like none of the none of the shots of the rings at the fans. Have our mistakes timmy. They read like very intentional. Like pseudo subtle reveals of the ring. If this is a lie like what the hell sorta of fucking lie at to come up with clayton johnson as the fiance came out of left field. I just don't it's too ridiculous to be ally. i knew whatever it is. I'm just happy. She's not engaged. That cop like that guy sean larkin. He was no good. I'd rather be with like a like a cutie. Little puppy dog nor me dude from modesto than that weird cop that weird famous cop who hosted the terrible show. You know just the worst and so does it surprise me at all that lana had a rushed engagement that she literally met this guy an app and then got engaged him a few months later not at all not in the slightest no. She's sort of revealed herself to be a real kind of like ignorant idiot over the past like nine months. I mean i mean. She's had a lot of bad press for understandable reasons. Why not just like have some like random normally hunk. Yeah truly why not so. Who is this guy. His name is clayton johnson. He is a musician. He has performed in many many bands in. he's got like the. He's a real hometown hero. This guy. he's done it all. I feel like he's been in bands with his two brothers as the caller said chantrey and connor. Chantrey is also a musician. Chancery gantry chantrey when you look at shanties bio i think he's like i think he's like a one of those people like one of those like working who's like guitarist for sort of whoever needs a guitarist because it's like totally played guitar applied he's played guitar for demi levato studio. He's a yeah and i think that's sort of a clayton. Johnson was up to two because he's been so many he was brought into this band. This very to weeny bopper band called Studio sunrise a lot of people. Because i guess stereos skyline opened for good charlotte third and maybe the jonas brothers or something like they were like lot of people really tweet like people we follow or whatever tweet like oh my god not stereo skyline. Like they remember them. If you were a disney tween in two thousand eight you were like oh you loved these guys. You loved these. I'm i remember going to see bands. When i was at that very precious age and the openers would always be the guys that you kind like follow and we're like i saw them. I i knew them. I you know like they were like i saw black eyed peas open for no doubt. And i like mike. Ip's like and it was like very early them. It's funny because they're yo yeah.

Well we have liked to but it was difficult. Obviously being sent in space. I mean does this surprise me like horseback riding is like the most expensive maybe not the most. I'm sure people could name whatever just feels like the most expensive sport you could get into the costs involved in learning how to do this crap crazy now. I knew someone called my friend. Because i haven't seen them in forever. But i knew someone whose mother worked in horse sperm sales. And i was like what. Yeah 'cause horse sperm. And so they need someone to harvest. I collect collect ca because she collects it like you actually unlv. I mean that was among her. Many jobs the stables but it's so expensive like if you go to of course semen dot guests no guests.

Yeah bucket of sperm. That you've i can't with the with what you've purchased. Yeah of course. I mean that's a whole industry very genuinely suggest you look at these websites because the they provide like will they provide. It's fascinating they provide like Entire history so it's like oh.

Oh well good business. Good business anyway next call. Hey lindsay bobby. I have An additional theory to kind of help support your case as to why tintern foul follows. Cheryl cole I do think that probably it wasn't a steak for the finger in a search in my only Kind of supplemental theory. I guess to yours. You know tina. Turner lives in a castle in switzerland. So is the search function of instagram. Like the have the geo location into account when i when searching coming because maybe you know since she's closer to the uk. In switzerland share cheryl cole is the popular than maybe share is at this given tignes. Maybe show called came up. I i don't know just just another theory Crunch crunch think we got tweets about this too great theory. I love this. This is this is great. These great theories. Totally i mean. We only tested the search function like within our own phones. Meaning like geo tagged to here. So share came up first. But you're right. Maybe if you're abroad. Maybe if you're in switzerland honestly do i even think that tina turner herself was doing the following. I don't know we don't know where the person who's doing the following we've been we've been over this with dion we've been over this with other people with their social media like eight. It's not. we're not entrepreneur. That tina was the one who even set this thing up. Should we actually use this as a way to talk about the email that we got. I'm not sure i don't. I don't want to reveal this person identity but somebody did email us a link to the social media company that seems to be the one hundred percent sure. It's the one who started the elf on the shelf. The celebrity on celebrity mean because literally they represent all of the celebrities who were the ones that started spreading this thing so clearly they were in the background being like okay. We're gonna post this here. We're going to post this here. Here's mark ruffalo. Here's nicole kidman. Here's what of that like we. It's clear lindsay sends me a link and i it feels weird even say the name of the company but like i not okay. Well she sends me a link to this place called digital media management and it's literally digital media management dot com and lindsey goes. Just watch the first video like no context out of nothing this morning. And i'm watching the video and it's this sort sizzle reel and as people appear onscreen. It's all the people from the terrible mean down to kate. Walsh and i was like oh. I immediately put it together. I was like these are the people who did the terrible mean. We have our proof. We have proof literally starting with elizabeth banks. It's just putting that there were literally called. Dm called digital media management. They're the most innis as we were talking about these companies being kind of unassuming on purpose. They're the most unassuming company that does this role. But okay we don't need to.

"To know at the celebrities. Who don't i'm bobby finger weber and quitting the daily mail. The opposite brian. Baumgartner in his twenty twenty top earner on cameo with over one million dollars for recorded shoutouts. I thought that was a pretty delightful finding and also it makes so much sense to me. You know in a way like a total who a favourite from a very specific show watched by old and new people old and young people not new old and young people. Are you new. In a way. There are new people. Gen z sort of their new people. There new there. Now are you new here. Yes and apparently he's known for making very good cameos like he puts a lot of care to them. Because apparently it's a full time job. It's probably more fun than making a podcast like his office. Ladies you know oh you mean like compared to his former co workers exactly if the end of the year payday. Where the same would you choose to make cameos everyday random people or do a podcast once a week with your old co worker. All i would choose the podcast cast over. Let's call it five days a week just doing cameo after cami. No preparation i. I would choose the podcast. I'm sorry like still no edit in come on cameos you remember doing Cameos are rough like year or one day. We've told the story you're at the mercy of people and it's a lot of work to come up with a unique thing for every person. They're all doing the same shed happy. Congratulations i'm just saying it takes like it's tough. It takes skill to be the person who's like really excited about a cameo each time and for how many this guy did like he really has the skill him. We talked about him. We talked about delay hill. There are people who put in the work but it really is. It's hard to put in this work duly. How did not make the top list. The top list was kind of weird. Is he michael. Rapaport rappaport which is why. Why why ryan. Baumgartner make sense. And i don't even watch the office. I'm like oh. I recognize that face. I know that character. I understand why an office. Dan would want this side character as the gold standard. Michael rapaport what are you asking him to say. Like what even is like his. Does he have like a catch. Phrase is a podcast right. That's like his his thing to. I don't know what the draw is eight. I don't know and then you have Shark tanks kevin o'leary which is yeah. That guy needs more money for sure. Actor sean astin. Okay okay Nostalgic perez hilton which is also kind of weird Sonja morgan from real housewives of new york that got to me and singer debbie gibson. That's really showing the age bracket of people who are paying cameos. I know there's more to you have a cure it gilbert godfrey which makes sense to me. Who's james murray. Do you know. He's a comedian. He's one of the impractical. David and anne who t- who i think are like youtube people you to comedian types. Some website estimated how much they made. Although i feel like this is not accurate and then when of happening was i guess the soup soup man from seinfeld was on this list and then he got mad that kamioka revealed what he made and what own. I was like okay. This is just too much drama. This is too much drama because this revealing this information is clearly like pr. you know. It's like well look. How much like like the offices brian. Baumgartner is making a million dollars on cameo like look what you. Meanwhile they take twenty five percent. So i mean they're also making a million dollars more than a million and where they reveal the new york times podcast like not. It wasn't like some bachelorettes podcasts. It was a high profile new york times. Not some bachelorettes podcast. And you know what i mean. Yeah okay. let's not put podcasts. Above other podcasts. On the same shady level here do you want to move onto comments. Yeah this is. Who's there are weekly call in show where we take your questions. Comments concerns share. You don't wanna talk about the lady gaga oreo go. You don't want to discuss it anymore. I wanted to talk about the league. Oriole i didn't want to dwell on the lady gaga or we talked about it for now a month in the four. What i'm saying is i clicked on the near time story. That was headlined we asked why does oriole keep releasing new flavors. It's a story about like it's actually really interesting because it's so obvious because it's like oh because it keeps people interested and always reminds people that the oj is. The best essentially is what the story is about. And so it's like we're constantly just releasing new flavors because number one novelty cells because their trash and because they keep the demand for the regular ones whatever and to be fair to that like assessment. It's honestly true. Like if you try a new oreo flavor and you're like yum yum. It's still like the best. The best one is the. Og like yes. Maybe a little mint a maybe into a little mint but not really. But i still go back to the original. Yeah oh totally. I think this is sort of the nugget here. It says sales or not. The point novelty orioles. According to mr parnell play a much purer role to help drive consumers back to milk's alleged favorite the one hundred year old patrick familiar as the plain old or in other words. The new flavors function as advertisements. The original sales were up twelve percent for novelty flavors. Classic sales were up twenty two percent. Okay that's not the point. I clicked this.

"Now we keep things rolling on a Monday. By the way, I'm Thursday and I'm cooking my first Thanksgiving Turkey. It's an 18 pounder picking it up from the sun on Wednesday, and I have no idea what I'm doing. So I may I was told it was a broad turkey with a lot of breast meat, so I May need some advice on I've had a look at that boy. That's that's not appropriate maid stole 22 21 May afternoon. We're gonna keep that kind of talk from my time slot. Please calm yourself down. And secondly gosh, what is undertaking the Thanksgiving party where it's heading? We have already been advised. And by the way, I say, party this this is this is just family. His inner circle family, but but I've been in masculine or not. Yeah, no. Well, don't worry the mask up, but in fact, hoping outside I think you know some heaters, whatever outside mask up, but But like we're purchasing this thing, this is gonna be a smoked turkey that you just like, Pull it out. Here's the turkey like there's if there's ever a year to not work hard on Thanksgiving in miss it, this is it. Don't Don't. Don't. Don't overdo it, Dude. Don't over. Don't overdo it. All right. We're not gonna overdo it. We got our good friend Mitch Laurence on the line. Forbes, Sirius XM Mad Dog Radio, formerly New York Daily News basketball legend. Joining us from the apple. What's up, Mitch? How are you? Guys I'm doing great here. There won't be any kind of Thanksgiving. We're punching till next year, So it's just gonna be very low key, But that's where we are. I mean, I'm sitting in a Corona bar virus hot spot about 15 miles due west of New York City. Loves masks, decontaminating groceries, You know, just the usual lot of fun, right? Well, happy holidays. Mitch. It wasn't happy Weekend if you're a warrior fan, because the Lakers now have Dennis shrewder Wesley Matthews, Marcus All mantra is Harold at the mid level. My goodness, the 26 year old forward, it could have gotten way more decides. No, you know what the Lakers couldn't get by the Lakers. I'll just join the Lakers depressing weekend if you're not a Laker fan. Tell you what. The Laker offseason got a great piece of news. And it was an awful piece of news for the Warriors. When Clayton Johnson, that whole thing happened on draft night, we blew out his Achilles because I'm looking at the Warriors is probably The number one challenger to the Lakers, and I'm not saying that because I'm on your show. I've been saying that the last four days on Sirius Radio. I mean, without Clay Thompson, the lawyers are just not The same team and for the Lakers. That is a great piece of news in it. Like you said. They got better. I think they got better. I know people are talking about other defense is and it's good and you know, they're gonna lose some of championship pedigree. Well, all the guys who are back won a championship. LeBron is still entering his 18th year. The best player in the sport. We've never seen that before in the history of the sport. Anthony Davis has now won a championship that will suit that'll servant. Very well, confidence wise, and you know, they turned over their roster in terms of, you know, no more Rondo Championship guy, but shooters younger Got better legs at this point, you know, you talk about Harold. He did nothing in the bubble, but he was great the rest of the time for the Clippers, and that also hurts the Clippers. Obviously, um, so, yeah, the Lakers right now look like the odds on favorite guides to repeat. Well, I'll tell you, why also matches a double got punch that Marc Gasol goes to the Lakers because he was rumored to be a potential warriors target. Avery bad or Bradley was high on their list, too. They also didn't get him. He goes to Miami. So So there may still be more going on. I'm sure there will be. But if Kent Days more, obviously, Kelly, you bray. Um onders proud Wanamaker. I mean, if that's If you put that on the warrior roster, minus clay, you know, obviously they're not as you said the number one challenger, the Lakers. But then where are they? How far do they fall in the playoff structure in your mind? Well, you know, we'll see what the Clippers do about their point guard situation. Getting a Baka was huge for them. They rebounded well off the loss of Harold. Um, they have a new coach. Right? Ty Lulu. Um, so you know, and the way they lost against Denver, just going down like a bunch of chokers that's hanging over them. Nothing. They can't rebound off that. But now we have a lot of questions, even about Kawai letter. Forget about pulled. George's always questions about him. So you know, I don't know about the Clippers. Portland got better. No doubt about that. They did it, Neil. Oh, say did a great job. Um, you know, we don't know what's gonna happen with Houston with her. I got you know, I think hard is gonna end up in Philadelphia is down more is there Probably trade Westbrook. Golden State still has a shot. I guess that a first round home court advantage, meaning top four. But you know what I mean, when when you look at what the potential was coming back off of last year's disaster. Having curry and Thompson and green and wise men and Wiggins and you know then and they would obviously have been support. It's a big come down for them, so I mean, this will be a playoff team. That's still a massive blow to the franchise. It's weird. I mean, the Golden State. I mean, I love the wisemen pick. I think that's.

"So DA's are able to go to you know, to see a charge person and say, hey, I'm you know, I know that you're you're stuck inside the cell. You can't pay your bail. But you could get out today. We can make that happen but cleats to these convictions. And that's how plea deals get signed. And that's how we so easily so often find that people end up with these convictions. And then they're in the system bail is been the way in which we've been able to incarcerate millions of people in this country. What we need. Instead is what in many other places are doing, you know, United States is one of two countries in the world that has money bail system you. I think for us what we're advocating for is a system by which we prioritize liberty. We we look at what? As that people can get the support that they need to come back for trial for court, so housing in text reminders, or some really exciting new organizations that have been developing ways to get people back to court that look like transportation support or reminders via technology or taxed in in those things are incredibly effective in. So we actually have a lot of ways at our fingertips to to make sure that people I guess are coming back to court on. But I I think also we have to look upstream a little bit and say, well, why are there so many people who are being being charged arrested in criminalised in the first place. And so those are some of the bigger questions that were that were also tasked with with figuring out as advocates we decided to take on the Bill industry and go hard, we we approach from a corporate divestment standpoint where we were able to because of the voices of women women coming together were able to really partner with Google. Bill and able to get the largest corporate divestment from the bail industry happen when Google Facebook band bail bonds advertising on their platforms that was because of women who have been used an abused and exploited by this industry for years coming together approaching can be corporate folks in saying, hey, you know, there's something that I think you ought to know about how this is impacting our lives in. I think that is a really powerful example of of what what is possible. And then finally, we we put, you know, do direct actions. So we are part of collective called the national bailout, which is a group of black organizers from across the country who lead black centered race Justice work and are together have have been bailing out women out of jails before mother's day for the last two years. And, you know, at while we wait for the lawyers to do their thing while we wait for corporations to get the message or feel the pressure like we're just going to raise the money. Get get our people home. And that's what that's the beauty of direct actions. Will you know, what I'm really really moved by the work that you do. I think it's it's really really important, obviously. And I'm really really proud of the work. So you know, keeping up it's really important in. Thank you so much for taking time to talk to me today.

"Social isolation has been something that we were really nervous to talk about at the beginning. I thought you know, I've I've wanted to say for a long time like because of mass incarceration women are dying. And I'm not just talking about, you know, women who are dying inside jail cells like Sandra black. Land. I'm talking about that. This is an issue that is that is even larger. I'm looking at women like vanita Browder who, you know, not too long after her son who was incarcerated in Rikers island pretrial as a teenager for something that was laid her, you know, he was later case was later dismissed, you know, he suffered over thousand days inside adult facility where he was tortured in Beuys and left very different than he came in in such a negative way that he took his own life. Right. And that story that is the story that we hear about when think about Crete trial reform bail reform, the kind of atrocities of our fail system, but we fail for whatever reason to mention that within a very short time period later, his mother dies of what news reports would come to say of growth in heart. You know, she should be counted in the casualties of this of the w-. War on drugs of mass incarceration in our kind of addiction to locking people up and throwing away. The key new one of the things that always stayed with me was the personal accounts of women who had incarcerated loved ones, right? The words. Lonely 'isolation, you know, Kip reading that over and over again, and you know, that was that was a theme being incarcerated it breaks up communities, and it's intended to isolate people from society mean that that's the whole point, you know. But what that means is that everyone who's peripheral to them. You know, they also experience this isolation, right? There are also isolated innocence. Even though they aren't locked up. There's this sense of Gould by association. Also, one other point is that, you know, talking about women's loneliness just talking about women's loneliness. Generally, you run the risk when you bring that up of people dismissing it as being a non issue or not important. You know, talking about loneliness is unimportant retraite, right? Actually in the concepts of something is big is criminal Justice. You know, people only want to talk about this in the context of policy or legislation or or the cost of it. And they the kind of wanted to remove the emotional element of it. You know, but you just you just can't do that. You know? So I commend you for highlighting that piece of the struggle. So I want to say about this is that it was really hard to talk about at first that this was a women's crisis. I was afraid to tell people like, you know, there's this loneliness. There's isolated I was afraid that what people would say would be like, oh, you know. So what? And why is that such a big deal? You know, you know, women are lonely, and we know that so often when you're talking about a women's health in general, it gets minimize and disregarded. If it's paid attention to at all it's last on the agenda. Right. We know this is the pattern and so thinking about trying to uplift women with incarcerated loved ones as representing. A major crisis in women's health was an uphill climb. Because of the context and the stigma attached to having a loved one behind bars in the first place in so a couple of things change that. I think one was actually the passing of Anita Browder was that we were able to say like look here is an example of what we see all of the time. We are seeing these kinds of mental health effects that look like suicidality that look like, you know, severe depression, which if you understand what's happening because of mass incarceration is is understandable, unexpected perhaps. But but for some reason, we're not discussing it. I'm in the second thing that happened was that I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to hear the former surgeon general of this country, speak Dr Gupta, and when he spoke he talked so persuasively about and from a deep sense of conviction about the fact that today in the United States are health crisis is one of isolated. Of loneliness. He said we have a crisis of loneliness..

"What are the strategies we need to double down on? I wanna know what every holder said, we did he say. You know? And he he I will never he put his hand on my arm, and he grabbed me like this was the first time he'd ever heard this before any said. I just never even thought about that. And I'm embarrassed he said, I'm embarrassed that I have never thought about that. And it makes so much sense. You know for that moment. I was like can I just pull out my iphone importer? Really quick. And have you on record saying that? But, you know, this is this is the response that I I think we get every time, you know, we're in we took on the bail industry over the last two years in the beginning of that campaign. People were asking why in the world are women with incarcerated loved ones like like, why are they involved in this issue? Why is this what you would consider your issue? And I just think like any thought about who's paying the bail industry. It is women. It is grammar. There is in mothers who are putting their houses up of collateral to secure their loved ones the lease. It is women who are going into debt to to prison phone companies in to provide support to loved ones inside and children left behind on the outside. It's women who are in these positions. No in quote know, what the the ugliness of our criminal legal system first-hand and are experiencing the. The life altering impacts despite perhaps never having seen the inside of a cell. And I think that is something that we cannot lose sight of in the midst of our conversations about the criminal Justice system. Meanwhile, women, of course, are being incarcerated at a rate that is outpacing that of men eighty percent of women in jails are mothers in so the the ways in which we are looking at these issues out. You know, we talk about intersection -ality, I think we we so often like to kind of throw around that word. But to really commit ourselves to intersectional struggle means that we need to see the ways in which our systems are designed to harm women in communities of color. And I think in our criminal Justice conversations. We I just haven't found his talking about women a lot or certainly not enough. And that's something that that I care about from a multitude of angle. When that look strategic. I believe we need women and they're persuasive in powerful voices two fuel this movement. I also believe that we need women to be able to understand. Let me say also we need women in trans women in people we need queer communities, we need gender. Non conforming people in order to really address the ways in which patriarchy is a central motor of our continuous kind of constant need to choose punitive controlling Carceres solutions to harm those things are tied up in in values of patriarchy as well as values of of white supremacy. And if we're not going to get to those kinds of root causes than we're not gonna get to that. I think the aims that were all driving towards now. You know, you're absolutely right. I mean that was my first reaction going back to Eric holder's reaction. I thought of course. Of course, women are taking on this pertinent in it hadn't occurred to me hadn't on me before. Right. And I want to go back to that stat that you mentioned you said one in four women has an incarcerated loved one one in four which is incredible. But then also I think he said one in two black women or women of color has an incarcerated loved one. Is that right? Yes. One two black women, and until you define this as a women's health crisis..
