The American Jewish Community and the 2020 US Election
"Soifer previously served as national security adviser for Senator Comma Harris now, the Democratic nominee for vice president and Joe Biden's running mate. She joins us now to talk about the role. Jewish. Voters play and how she believes. Democrats addressed. Jewish. Priorities please keep in mind. AJC. Is a five. Oh One C. Three not profit organization AJC neither supports nor opposes candidates for elective office and with that disclaimer Haley welcome thank you so much for having me. So let's start with the basics and Kinda, the horse race aspect of this how much of the American voting population identifies as Jewish? So the Jewish community in terms of the American population is about two percent, but we're actually about three percent of the electorate and we'd play an outsized role in. NHS for three reasons, we voted higher rates. On average Jewish Americans vote at a higher rate than. By about fifteen percents we also where we live correlates with wear our votes tend to matter even more we tend to live in swing states and a third reason which I'm sure we'll get into is that we overwhelmingly support Democrats in our view as Jewish Democrat organization that is especially or in terms of the outsize impact we have. So Haley Bernie Sanders in his speech on Monday addressed the many Democrats who really wanted him to be the nominee and many of them were Jewish are Jewish many of them have us on Israel, that don't jibe with the very pro Israel aspects of the party, platform. It really sounded like Bernie was calling on Democrats to unify despite their differences and I'm curious how the Party and its leadership have prevented Israel from becoming a wedge issue. Joe Biden has done an exceptional job in unifying the party around these critically important issues, including Israel and the platform that's been adopted at this convention exemplifies what is overwhelming democratic support for the US Israel relationship. Ebeidi s support a full funding for military. And Support of the STOORIKHEL alliance, it's the view of the majority of members of Congress that is the democratic mainstream media. So you emphasize what a majority of Democrats you certainly we've had concerns over the years about Ilan Omar had to leave. Is that kind of who you're thinking about when you say a majority of Democrats feel this way I should have said an over overwhelming majority you mentioned. Two. Members, of Congress, we currently between the House and the Senate head of over two hundred and seventy. So between those two members of Congress who we agree do not share our views on Israel and we've spoken out against them going back to before they were even elected. But between the two of them to over two seventy, we're talking about less than one percent of the Democratic members of Congress. They are very outspoken though they have expressed views with which we disagree and we've made that clear and that's why we're not supporting their re election and we don't share their views but luckily, their views are not shared by our party either look at the platform I mean the platform is the views of our candidate and the views of our Party and the platform could not be more clear in. Its support of Israel, what I the states to watch in this upcoming election and in which of those states could the Jewish vote really make a difference. When we look in elections, we always look at the last election as a baseline and we know that had Donald Trump not one Florida and either Michigan or Pennsylvania. He would not be president today and in those three states Florida Michigan and Pennsylvania. The Jewish vote alone could made up those margins. So when we looked to twenty twenty in this election, we are looking at the Jewish vote in those critically important states, my home state of Michigan Donald. Trump won by just ten, thousand, seven, hundred, and four votes. That margin could be overcome by the Jewish student population of Michigan in Michigan state a low. We are looking at the Jewish vote in those three critically important states but also states like Arizona and Colorado and Georgia, which in addition to being presidential swing states are going to be critically important in terms of the control of the Senate. Are you saying that the Jews in those swing states voted Republican or didn't vote at all did shoes in those swing states voted we know that Jewish voters do turn out and in twenty sixteen, it was no different than in previous elections choose turned out. But. We also know bat they turned out in support of Hillary. Clinton at about seventy two percents. If you look at the two thousand eighteen midterms Jewish voters supported Democrats at seventy nine percents. So we saw an increase, we believe that in twenty twenty, those numbers can continue to go up in terms of Jewish support for Democrats. So now we'll talk with your Republican counterpart on next week's episode. But from your vantage point, you said that most Jews identify with the Democratic Party why is that? So, choose have historically for decades defied overwhelmingly with the Democrats, the values that Jews hold dear tend to be those aligned with the policies supported by Democrats. So when it comes to domestic policies such as access to affordable healthcare and education ED and gun safety and ensuring that we are country welcoming the stranger and not enacting cruel and discriminatory policies toward immigrants and refugees. These are all key issues driving the Jewish vote. On those issues and more, that's where Jewish voters align with Democrats when it comes to foreign policy is well, we know that support of Israel is an issue that is important of course to Jewish voters and Mrs. Issue Where Democrats to our squarely aligned with the priority of Jewish voters, which is the support of the strong US Israel relationship, and in this election, we have a new issue. So all of those things have been constance. New issue in this election that is impacting the Jewish, vote in Support of Democrats and that is our rising insecurity as a community. We have seen an unprecedented rise in anti-semitic attacks targeting our community including the horrific attacks in Pittsburgh and Powei we know that seventy three percent of Jews feel less secure than they did years ago and over half of US blame. Donald Trump for that and that's because we've seen him embolden anti-semites white nationalist just last night he tweeted out support for an extremist group Hugh a non that has peddled conspiracy theories still on these issues especially when it comes to the security of our community. There's a clear choice in this election and Jewish especially do not believe that Donald Trump has the best interest of our community in mind he has Jewish family members. He's certainly been friendly to Israel is strengthened that relationship. So how does that square? There's no question. He has Jewish family members. He's also married and he's done said many misogynistic things. So that alone does not qualify him as what I would consider to be someone who's been particularly good for the Jewish community I look at the numbers and I look at the unprecedented rise in white nationalist propaganda or anti Semitic attack and the words that. Come out of his mouth better clear signs to anti-semites to racist to bigots that he is their ally whether it is identifying anti-semites white nationalist marching Charlottesville as very fine people or calling the extremists that marched in Michigan with swastikas very good people that was earlier this year or hiring someone recently, Sebastian Gorka who is affiliated with the Nazi party in Hungary? When it comes to Israel. Donald Trump. Has Been Long on symbolism and short on substance. Yes. He moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and we recognize that Jerusalem is, of course, the capital of Israel. But the substance matters and when you look at the record of Joe Biden who with President Obama finalized unprecedented historic thirty eight. DOLLAR AGREEMENT WITH ISRAEL PROVIDING FOR AID for the next ten years, and you look at the security issues that Israel faces. Actually Donald. Trump has not been that great for Israel.

What Is Pi?
"Come to brain stuff. A production of iheartradio rain stuff lauren. Bo-bottle here the number referred to as pie has mesmerized mathematicians for four thousand years. It's the rarest of back medical constance and unfailingly accurate ratio. That's also never ending. The digits of Pi have been calculated out more than twenty two trillion decimal places without ever repeating a. That makes it an irrational number. The definition of Pie simple. It's the ratio of a circle circumference. That is the length around the circle divided by its diameter or at the links across the circle. But what's remarkable? Is that no matter. The size of the circle you're measuring that ratio of circumference diameter will always equal three point. One four one five nine two six five three five eight nine seven et cetera usually shortened to three point one four divide the circumference of a tennis ball by its diameter. And you get three point one four divide the circumference of the planet Mars by its diameter. And you get three point one four divide the circumference of the known universe by its diameter. You get the point. Pie is critical to several basic calculations geometry physics and engineering including the area of a circle which is Pie Times Square of the radius and volume of a cylinder which has pyre squared times the height of the cylinder when ancient Babylonian attempted to measure the precise area of circles back in one thousand nine hundred BC. They signed a value to pie. A three point one to five. The ancient Egyptians came up with three point one six zero five the Greek mathmetician archimedes working in the third century BC and the Chinese mathematician. Xue Changsa working in the Fifth Century. Ce ARE CO credited with calculating the most accurate approximations of Pi before Calculus and supercomputers gave us a more definitive answer. Then in seventeen o six. The self taught Welsh mathematician. William Jones assigned the Greek letter P. To this magical number without end possibly because P is the first letter of the Greek words. For periphery and perimeter symbols use was later popularized by Eighteenth Century. Spec petition Leonard Euler but wasn't adopted worldwide until nineteen thirty four. The fact that Pie can be found everywhere not only in circles but an arcs pendulums and interplanetary navigation and intimately long has inspired a cult following that includes plenty of Geeky tattoos and even its own National Holiday National Pie Day was officially recognized by the United States. Congress in two thousand nine but the definitely not square roots of the holiday can be traced back to nineteen eighty-eight and a man named Larry the Prince of Pie. Shaw Shaw was a beloved longtime employee at the exploratorium. A Science Museum in San Francisco California and came up with the idea of Pi Day on one thousand nine hundred eighty eight staff retreat following the death of exploratorium founder. Frank Oppenheimer the date for celebration. Well because the first digits of Pi Three Point one four March fourteenth or three fourteen even better march fourteenth is also Albert Einstein's birthday making Pi Day nerd doubleheader the first Pi Day celebration was nothing more than Shaw and his wife handing out slices of fruit pie and tea at one fifty nine. Pm One five nine being the three digits following three point one four but the holiday quickly gained fame in the bay area. Shaw eventually built be Pi Shrine at the exploratorium a circular classroom with a circular brass plaque at center. Every day celebration at the exploratorium ended with a colorful parade led by Shaw blasting his boombox with a remix of pomp and circumstance set to the digits of Pi and circling. The Pie Shrine. Exactly three point one four times. The parade ended with the singing of happy birthday to Albert Einstein. The prince pipe passed away in two thousand seventeen but the annual exploratorium party continues as do Pi Day celebrations. The world over popular ways to celebrate include. Baking a pie orb some kind of circular treat and holding pie recital contests the current world record for memorizing and reciting the most digits of Pi was set by Sharad Kumar Sharma of India in two thousand fifteen when he recited a staggering.

Diversity at the Oscars: The 2020 Race Isn’t Looking Any Better Than Last Time
"I feel like hell for the law and Michael to Michael for lying and get contraction I saw this French film of course later on so I was very excellent and might just make it to be honest it would not Maxis the prices for me you know at the very beginning of awards season three kicks off with three phone fast fan is Toronto in telluride at the end of the summer the beginning the full and then bounced off you start hearing people's reaction and this is the red slacks a waiting van and you're looking at pictures saying well they're all satin and a prominent films with African Americans the soon so would directed by women I didn't know if they were going to cross over the queue for that group of voters in a few years ago actually when when a post all the adults because so white we could get at round tables with the active the directors the writers and when we were putting together the actress round table there were absolutely no women of color who seems like they would even like to to get nominated and I remember and and we got pretty massively criticized rightly I take the blame for this to have an all white women's round table and and we changed direction after that but it was evident that the industry walking creating those films and I think it's easy to say if the cat in the for XP industry see both you and you have to tackle things in multiple directions I think the academy's has done a great deal to do that what we have is talking about this the other things the academy dot for instance mentorship program financing for education there are multiple patrols here that lead to this problem and she also looking at the ferry downstream and the cat in the wrong but you call take in isolation April Stephen has a great point we tend to look at the academy not that the academy shouldn't be accountable they should they're sort of the tip of the iceberg in many many ways what's your view of the academy that you focus so much attention on verses the industry I absolutely agree with Steve and that it's not just the economy it's not just the golden globes is not just a Baptist we need to go all the way back to the very beginning to the screenwriter stage and figure out again whose stories are being told and who is telling those stories when someone is sitting down with a blank page and findings front of them hoping that they have written about to write the next best picture you know what is the protagonist look like is it a tall leggy blonde from the Midwest because if so by the time we get the casting months the maybe years later then the only person you're thinking about is Scarlett Johannson or Jennifer Lawrence but then one has to ask what is their hair color have to do with how well they perform in that film right because that means then then Daya and Gina Rodriguez and other people won't even get an opportunity to audition just because of what's that in the mind set I absolutely agree that the economy is the very end of the line so we really need to start back at the beginning and find out what opportunities are being given to traditionally under represented communities not just with respect to race but also sexual orientation gender identity disability to get those films made from the very beginning and at the same time April you have written about the types of roles that black actors and actresses do get nominated for once they are cast once they are in that pipeline you wrote a piece in variety you talk about how the only black woman to be nominated for Best Actress was Cynthia Revo who plays Harriet Tubman in the film Harriet similarly Lupita nyong'o won an Oscar for her role in twelve years a slave but this year she was overlooked for the to care after she played in Jordan peels hit movie us talk about what you see is the pattern for how black actors and actresses get promoted and celebrated when they are in films it's a real problem and I think that Stephen touched on this a bit you know that that in their minds that even when they were sending up those round tables they didn't think that those you know particular performances were even going to cross over for women of color and so they were included in the panel and one must ask what kind of troops palatable to the economy to voters to film critics because the vast majority of winners especially for women of color and black women in film have all come from a place where the characters are experiencing significant trauma so inflamed women women living in abject poverty even Whoopi Goldberg who played the cookie skit side kick in ghosts and when the best supporting actress you know they were there were questions about whether she had mental health issues right the only black woman who's ever won for Best Actress is Halle berry in monster's ball and clearly she with the troubled character and so one has to say well are there only thing is that the economy fees you know that only a slave narrative that is palatable to again a majority white male voter membership and that's the movies that we see time and time again you know why is it that my pain the pain of my ancestors is entertaining for you that that is what you will award but when someone like Peter in young girl has to fully fleshed out characters in us she is snubbed for that role because we actually the very first of may off to be on the actress roundtable if you will be pizza it was a wonderful performance so it isn't shown true of actresses of color you know for the rack access to the email you'll you'll you'll call the mansion on college and terrific performance by Adam Sandler but is deceived official in the movie Sean movies don't tend to do well they lost to until movie was was one of the very few exceptions and this applies just as much to active in that applies just as much the film that win the Oscar for Best Picture DOT flight in the whole history of the office you call he had any comment is that where you thought I called think of a single is shown a picture of that as well on the other hand Schindler's list winter so this isn't shocked a criterion for the place to women of color let's talk about some more films that could have been nominated that didn't get nominated we've already mentioned Stephen you mentioned hustlers one of many movies with a cast of mostly women directed by a woman they got zero nominations this year fair fail to to cross over is you say let's get people to hang on I want to I want to give people a little bit of a listen to hustlers here we go Wall Street guys it's in this country stole from everybody working people lost everything one of these things back to jail the game is rigged and it does not reward people who play by the rules like robbing a bank except get the keys hunter Harrison vulture some people have suggested that Jennifer Lopez campaigning for the nomination too much might have played into her not getting an Oscar nomination for her role in hustlers what what are your thoughts on this film and on the reason why J. lo was overlooked I mean how search has a very special place in my heart because it is based on and your magazine story but outside of that I just enjoyed it I think it has a lot of momentum it's a lot of fine and I mean my favorite teen hustlers as winter for Lawrence's teaching Constance Wu how to strip essentially and it's just such a loving scene between two women who were just you know being friends with one another but at the same time I think the thing with jail is that I think when you're voting for and someone when an Oscar part of the sort of metric is that you have to know that how much they wanted and away and that they need it and with Jello she's already like an icon she is such a form I mean we also heard the Superbowl last week and so I think it actually might have been the opposite that maybe she did and maybe that there's been that shouldn't wanted I'm not for need it to be to sort of solidify her status in Hollywood or or in the world really but it I was really surprised by Jill rocketing nomination because she had gotten a lot of the precursors and her biggest competition is obviously Laura Dern who is the favorite to win for playing a lawyer in marriage story but for a lot of the season especially after hosters career in Toronto they were pretty head like neck and neck but I think the jail thing is that did that character of like a mama bear stripper was not really you know super palatable to a lot of people she dealt drugs and you know sort of engaged or Shoup's worked as sort of a pen been engaged in sex work but at the same time like that's not really a role that we see women especially winning Oscars for I think I wanna push back in Stevens point earlier that that you know the problem about the roles women when the colors spit specifically play in movies is that extends to everyone I don't really think that's true anything Custer's is in some ways an example of that that this was sort of a prickly story about women who are doing bad things and getting caught doing them and that's just not a movie that people see as an Oscar movie I think that's everyone's detriment what we got this voice mail from a listener sharing his opinion about the role that race and gender should or shouldn't play when it comes to Oscar nominations we got several responses along this theme listen IBM injury Oscar is I don't mind or don't care who the with gender of the person is or what color the person is I care about quality in the movie that's being produced I don't care what color they are what gender they are I don't think it matters Linda tweeted this is it just possible that there were no good movies made by people of color or women this year when will the best just be the best without conditions attached Stephen you go first and then April what's your response okay I just briefly want to respond to sing about Jennifer Lopez I we saw she did get nominated the best supporting actress before it could be a thirty two fax one is that movie is very unsentimental about her role and it had a different ending in the retention people would have like that for the cliche narrative the very strength of the film is resistant to that meeting as you said less palatable the second thing is when conformist so let you see the acting when he seems so real that you think this is just what they like the performances of look she made it so real the people football if you'd just what she's like it's one of the reasons Tom Hanks has been so rarely nominate a you got nominated this year but not for many many years he makes it look so easy well certainly we're seeing the film let's let's put J.
"constance" Discussed on KCRW
"What would be well this call bad of whatever it is all very I all average all right so there is first of all calling Constance mother mom there and then offering to pay for her schooling in a way to what by her off exactly this is a very well practiced routine by because the first he would start out with the carrot which was you know an educational trust as they ended up calling this to try to get these claims to go away I'm when when that didn't work then he would you know sick his lawyers on them which he did as well with some of these women so yes that's what he tried to do but she did not accept that offer because she wanted justice she won and the police she wanted the DA to charge him criminally that's the only way she felt he would be stopped if he was prevented from doing it to anyone else by being behind bars but at the time the DA declined to do that why that's the sixty four thousand dollar question because by the end of this whole thing in two thousand five there were fourteen women total accusing Bill Cosby well while the DA said at the time that this call between John and because he wasn't on authorized wiretaps it turns out as I later found out from depositions and and the case one of the cases his own first assistant had told him that call was legal that that was because in Canada it's a what was originated in Canada you only need one party consent so that was a legal call bit caster insisted on calling on authorized wiretaps and what happened with the other women who came forward in their cases so to mark green was the second woman to come forward and she heard an excerpt from the DA's press conference about the case and just concluded that he didn't believe Andrea and wasn't gonna be filing charges so she came forward and she gave a statement to them anti entries attorneys and then she did an interview with me and after she came forward about a dozen more women came forward but the DA's office didn't even bother to interview most of them because he did not want to prosecute Bill Cosby I do not know why but he did not want to so after he decides not to prosecute because be criminally injury of files a civil civil suit against him and those twelve women plus become Jane does and the lawsuit so he admits that he's a sick man and yet he's very careful not to admit to doing anything wrong but I guess my question is where did this come from because the pattern was so similar with all of these women and eventually sixty women would come forward and say that they were sexually assaulted by him in the pattern was very similar was as you detail at first that the another cultivating the being a friend to the woman offering assistance and then arranging a rendezvous and then dragging the woman and assaulting her and so were you able to kind of look at this pattern and come up with a reason as to why he was doing this there's one theory that was presented in court papers just what is the son of Phili act which is like in happy to have sex with an unconscious person and in fact at his sentencing he was diagnosed by the psychologist as happened in non paraphilic disorder were non consenting adults which is basically the same thing I think it's all about control with him he has to be an utter and complete control of every situation he's and of every relationship peas and and how better to control someone then to drug them there's an FBI profiler that's an episode three a little bit but is she's much more detail in my book and she talks about this whole process of icon intimidation which is you know the power differential between the I con someone like Cosby and his victims they he they purposely the predator in the prey thing they choose victims they think will be believe should they come forward against them so there's got to be this power differential where they are and so much more powerful positions and their victims you know it's part of the game I think just like he talked in his own deposition about from the moment he met Andrea he had his eyes on her romantically and that he and her attorney say did you tell her that he said no no but that's not what you do you know he was really her in over the next fourteen months just predator chasing down this Friday it was it was step by step exactly the way merry Allen told if I I pro further described these predators work because like Jerry Sandusky's wine Catholic priest boy scout leaders any of these people were positions of power who seek out their victims they groom them and their families they create this false sense of security and trust and then they do something and then like in Cosby's Casey just completely dropped these these girls and many of them were teenagers people realize how many of these victims were teenagers he had this relationship with modeling agencies one of them in New York City would send him several young models a week when he was filming the Cosby show why were they sending models he was supposed to be so mentor in them at the studio they were what what he talks at length about it in his deposition they were you know they were young girls who weren't doing well in the cities they will come and they would have dinner with him at the studio some of these later became some of the gym does and the lawsuit and other women who came forward many years later to say he had drug and sexually assaulted them meanwhile he was cultivating this public image of squeaky clean sweater wearing America's dad you know Jello spokesman as you say fat Albert and yet you have in the podcast a bit from from his comedy routine where he basically talks about spiking women strength let's listen you know anything about.

Golden Globes 2020: Female directors snubbed yet again
"Me it's beginning to look a lot like awards season in the past week the Gotham independent film awards were handed out to the critics choice association released its nominations on Sunday the LA critics did their thing over the weekend as well and yesterday the nominations for the twenty twenty golden globes were announced in in the case of the latter there was a quite a bit of controversy the golden globes once again failed to nominate any female directors in film or TV honestly there were quite a few out there who are doing spectacular work Greta girl getting one ever given a online five live you wild the LA film critics and the critics circle offered a bit more in the way of diversity giving accolades the films including hustlers the farewell and Diane and among all three groups however married story parasite and the Irishman led the film category is joining us now to talk awards and what it all means is box culture writer and friend of the show Constance Grady because it's nice to see you thanks so much for having me so we'll talk about the the snobs in a minute but were there any surprises in the golden globe nominees for you I think the big surprise for a lot of people was joker getting nods not as for Joaquin perf walking Phoenix's performance which was expected but also getting nominated for Best Picture and Best Director especially since as you've already mentioned there were so many snobs in the directing category that was a movie that really became as big signifier in the culture wars when it came out honestly even before it came out there were some people who were saying that it was glamorizing the idea that a disenfranchised late and then turning to violence would be like this complete reasonable into laudable act and some people saying that it was the big greedy Christine's treatment that super hero movies deserved and then when it actually came out the critical consensus was that it was not really even interesting enough to justify that level of controversy so for it to make such a surprising sweep in a category that saw so many big films overlooked was really surprising I think for a lot of people do you think it it it seems to me that it really comes down to Joaquin Phoenix's performance I know that really maybe it was it was enough to sweep it into the best film category that performance really is undeniable and certainly you know a director does a lot of work to pull a performance out of an actor having said that I think there are a lot of other films in that that were in the conversation for Best Director Best Picture that didn't get pulled out that have really fantastic performances as well you know you could talk about it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood the Mister Rogers movie starring Tom Hanks Tom Hanks turns in a great performance and he was nominated as well but the director Merial Heller who did a lot of work with Hanks as well was not nominated so let's talk about that no women directors nominate you had hustlers affair well book smart little women when they see us what do you think was going on I mean this is speculation but you are culture writer yeah yeah I think one of the big things to remember about the golden globes is the end voting bloc the voting body for this award is super super weird the **** the Hollywood foreign press association is just ninety something people living in southern California extensively it's supposed to be a journalist for foreign publication of a lot of the members of the award body actually aren't and because it's a weird number in ninety people it's like not really enough to get a consensus pick on the and on the films of the year you know the academy in comparison has like eight thousand people in its body so you get like this weird sort of personal preferences can really tell things really strongly one way or the other so that's why it's kind of idiosyncratic yeah their picks tend to be very quirky and unusual compared to a lot of the other big awards shows and sometimes that means that they can recognize really really cool TV you know there was a time when the globe's had a reputation for being much better on TV than the end use words like the and needs would nominate modern family over and over and over again and that those route they're recognizing you know crazy ex girlfriend a Jane the virgin and other critically acclaimed show that never really got any any love but other times it means that the gloves will just completely shut out movies and TV shows that are really sort of in the middle of the conversation for no particular reason other than that didn't really connect with the voting body and kind of consistently it seems that the voting body does not connect with movie is directed by women the director honey boy tweeted good morning to everyone that's writing me about hash tag golden globes I feel you know this I was on the inside for the first time this year there are not they are not or people they do not represent us do not look for justice in the award system we are building a New

U.S. consumer confidence falls for the fourth month in a row
"There are some economic indicators that you you can really wrap your brain around right. The unemployment rate for instance or the number of new homes built in a given month. Both of those are tangible. Easily understood for the the most part sometimes though you get a report that while interesting and informative is also a bit squishy like the one we got today something something called the Consumer Confidence Index could give you the number but it's probably not gonNA mean anything to you one hundred twenty five point five. I mean I mean it's pretty strong actually and historically but it's also the fourth month straight that consumer confidence has gone down the question really though especially the important given how critical consumers are to this economy at this moment is what exactly consumer confidence is anyway.

‘Hustlers’ Review: Ripping Off the Suits
"Catching up on last week Eric tells about hustlers. okay how old this is based on I think the Vanity Fair article about true story about the group strippers basically Sir turned the tables on the people that they were entertaining the movie stars Constance Wu is one of these women who completely comes under the tutelage of Jennifer Lopez's sort of more world weary detailed search you will and the the former friendship and the you know we sort of get the you know the the basic story of what you know what strip clubs are in the people that paid her a young page and and what not and what the Jennifer Lopez's character basically can't **** is the idea that we have all these rich Wall Street guys coming in and having a jolly than everything that you know when they give them their credit cards they can then Max them out to as much as they can and you know take the cash and they all get rich off of that and when the guys go to complain well want to get a deal going to reverse the charge and I'll strip club the bank is going to do that so and then the you'll see get kind of a cadre of dances together and they're all basically doing this particularly your for a while it's going pretty good but the of the economy crashes in two thousand seven two thousand eight and things they have to start this kind of taken things to another level and actually going out and recruiting people to come in to the strip clubs and and still numb well you know taking them for all they're
Judy Garland's Top Movie Moments
"Welcome to film spotting Josh. We both took a crash course judy. Garland movies of the last few weeks and today is the final. Are you ready. I think I'm ready yeah I haven't I haven't seen everything. I don't even know if Michael Phillips is seen everything she's major so yeah. I feel prepared. They're still blind spots but this should be I think appropriate to our styles of preparing preparing for a show you methodically doled out the movies took them in over a few weeks and I crammed just didn't college. I procrastinated and I had to hit everything thing at the last minute to be fair. It helps when we actually commit to something for weeks. Had A title which is very rare for the show is rare well. Let's find out if Michael Phillips has is in fact seen every Judy garland movie we welcome in the man who will be handling proctoring duties for our garland examined is Michael Phillips from the Tribune. How are you good to see you goes good to see you. It's been a while I mean it's been a long time. I know it'd be on. I know we do this. More regular like Obama's. First Tournament feels like a slight exaggerate so how many how many do you think you've seen countered them up the garlic first of all. I had a wrong. I thought it was beverly girl. I'm on my three sons so I prepared all wrong. That's next show my next issue. That'll be a download killer. Yes but you know I'd say if you look at all the titles including the the obscure secure ones before she was advised. I've seen two-thirds maybe enough to feel pretty smug about my knowledge base compared to you guys okay okay well. That's all that really matters but let me ask you. Is there one at the tip of your tongue. That is a blind spot. You're embarrassed about. Is there a garland film. You've always meant to see that you haven't y actually I joked. I joked with the email to you guys earlier today about about pigskin parade or actually it was on twitter yes yes. I've never seen pigskin parade now. How you were just needling I was kneeling. I haven't seen pigskin parade. so you know if we can do a whole show on that next week at appreciate it could get to it but no that's of the biggies you know there's a few others in the early forties that I haven't seen him never seen presenting Lily Mars a lot of other things that would just sort of make you look click nipper the dog just staring. You know like what presenting. Lily were so these obscure titles to to to share explore someday later later in the show. We'll talk a little bit about hustlers. The new dramas set in the world of UPSCALE GENTLEMEN'S CLUBS IT Stars J. Lo and Constance Wu Michael and I both had a chance to see that that movie we open to big box office numbers last weekend. We've also got pull results to our question about which acclaimed movie director needs to make a movie set in space a lot of great feedback from that one including one Josh like last week. I might just be setting aside in my back pocket. Just bring on you upon. I'm going to have to leave the studio. We'll see but first I judy garland. The garland biopic Judy starring Renee Zellweger opens in limited release including here in Chicago next weekend the reviews so far pretty pretty much what you'd expect from the genre that Josh knows as his most detested movie genre the biotechs a little strong but not my favorite Los Zellwegger herself and getting a lot of praise now Michael. You have made a little bit of the festival around here lately. Did you see no no tomorrow to screening tomorrow. Does the does the listener goodwill no no. It doesn't know that you're going to see gonNA see a trend. We will have to have you back on to hear your thoughts. I could go on singing. I'll I'll go on singing. That's what I'll of course we may or may not get to a full review of Judy here on the show but we did want us the movie as an opportunity to spend some time time on Garland herself who until recently was kind of a blind spot for both of us Josh with the exception of the wizard of Oz of course it really was the Manelli marathon where we got to dive into her work. Is it fair to say that maybe the wizard of Oz isn't the best introduction one could have to Judy garland because Saad as a kid and many times sense and I don't know. Oh that a place to her strengths now that I've seen obviously over the rainbow is a central piece of focus and made her you know center to another level level of notoriety and fame but the character I don't think is sort of a passive character could be a little whiny and I held off on Garland for a while thinking meanwhile that's Judy Garland and then I think it was producers. Sam's pushing of Easter parade a couple of years ago. That was my first non wizard Judy Garland film the One with Fred Astaire and I was just completely shocked. At what a great president. She wasn't that so very different and then you're right. It was the Manelli marathon that really gave me a good sense of what she could do as well as catching up with nineteen fifty four is a star is born when the remake came out so yeah than really immersing myself men for this list. I in her stuff and surprise surprise Adam She's really something yeah. Check out the big brain on Josh. He's done all his homework. Shoot down the conclusion Asian. Is that needs to know about you the wizard of Oz I was. I'm a crammer like Adam. I'm doing the most I could watch the catch up on stuff. I hadn't seen in years years and years and stuff. I I knew I liked but hadn't seen in a long long time and just the the real pleasure of watching shing concentrated way of you know a little a little bit here and there for a couple of days of somebody who is just such an astounding triple threat who did did the top of the top of the heap and I mean I mean she. It's it's there's a handful of other. Mgm Stars Gene Kelly Fred mystere and then you know one or two others but it's it's Kelly astaire in Garland and then there's everybody else and that and that's when you think about what that actually means and when you talk about the work they did together with the garlanded with Kellyanne garlanded with a stereo. It's just you know. I don't have the same love for Easter parade that you do Josh but you know the talent level is just kind of astonishing though and it's just sort of a I don't know I don't I can't even be cynical about how what what a what a strong response. I had just kind of like just sort of like soaking up the talent because it's not somebody I grew up with loving from age eight on on you know I mean I mean I. I wasn't really a wizard of Oz annual viewer at that age you know because if the marksmen does Ron I was mark of course they were the Marx brothers. Those were not in the was it of is you know I would've actually loved to see him as ten minutes but the radar now jokes aside Josh I do think it's fair to say and this May bear out as we get into our picks that we've discovered there are depths to judy. Garland is a performer that probably aren't fully on display away in the wizard of Oz. So why don't we go ahead and jump into those picks we are going to devote this show to our top five. Judy garland moments and we're going to start it off with an an expert voicemail a guest opinion here from a previous contributor to the show does Ray Garcia Michael. You put us in touch with desert initially. She Played Madeleine Colin in Damian Chazelle debut film Guide Madeline on a park bench. She's currently an associate professor of Latin American Latino and Caribbean studies at Dartmouth and if you're a longtime listener the show you'll recall that she joined us for our top five musical numbers back in two thousand sixteen that was a tie in with our review of Damian Chazelle la La land and she's got a great pick for her favorite Judy Garland. Hi this is Deborah Garcia leaving a message for the Judy Garland show show if I had to choose my favorites judy moments which is indeed a tough task it would have to be rather obvious choice. I'm afraid of the have yourself Merry Little Christmas Song in Navy in Saint Louis. Your saw aw little let your heart the next year. Oh it's it's really an anomaly in musicals of that era in the sense that it is a song that is quite dark. It's a moment that's quite dark. even rather kind of foreboding it's Judy of course in her character esther trying to console her younger sister sure as they prepare to leave St Louis and moved to New York. The lyrics of course are storied lyrics. Now we know that there were at least two different versions of lyrics. The first is one being much darker than the first and it's it's something that quite rare for Hollywood musicals of the period to delve into such dark seems uh-huh change and family separation and perhaps separation is eternal and even though she's trying to comfort her little sister to D- it's clear that esther has her own doubts about what is about to happen and we hear that I think in in Judy Garland's voice voice up here. She's a masterful singer so we hear both the kind of conviction and hopefulness times that things will work out all right and then at other moments I think including the very very end of the song is she seeing those last final words we hear that there is some doubt there on her part some day soon you who beat him and and also just say that that for me you know that song has always been a kind of touch tone in my life something that has helped me kind of mark the various listen turns of my journey's first away from home three thousand miles away to college again leaving a college that I came to love and considering home and embarking on a new career and then to of course marriage and and having a kid and every year I revisit is it that film and that song and it helps me to kind of chart where I've been but also to help me brace myself for the future. Thanks

And I just watched that crazy rich Asians on a flight back from Kabo. And it's fantastic. I mean, I loved that movie. And she made it she stole it. She's a great actor. But as I've always said actors are crazy people. Most of them are nuts, and she's a little nuts too. She doesn't understand what she's doing in the moment. I agree with you. I think she'll regret it someday. When the role stop coming in because I tell you what if I was thinking about hiring her today, and it was between somebody else and her, and it was really really close. And after watching what she just spent on a great show, a hit show for no reason, and how ungrateful she is. I wouldn't hire her. I would go with someone else. I think this is the beginning of the end for her when you start doing things like that. You start thinking you're bigger than the vehicles that propelled you into your fame. That's when you've got trouble on your hands. And she's got trouble on Hanley because he could've thought all of this privately.

It is a lot of fun and it is the first film, the first American film in twenty five years to have an entirely Asian cast of Ken Jong my Twitter, nemesis, Aquafina, Henry golden. We'll be talking about him later on, and but it's headed up by Constance Wu as a sitcom in the states as well. And they came into London. The other week I went along a had a lovely interesting chat with Constance would enjoy delighted to be joined on the podcast by the star of crazy, rich, Asians, Constance Wu. How are you. Good.

Wind tour is not going to that many city. We actually did a lot of American cities, but then I actually wasn't able to do any of that because I'm currently shooting my television. Some obligated to that. I obviously and they've done Singapore and they've done London. I don't think they've done anything else. That's it so far. Yeah, so but the jet lag has been difficult to. To deal with and definitely doing a lot of press Alba games, but you know all for something that we all believe in. So it's a privilege to be able to do that. It does seem like the entire cast. I was on the screen last night and you guys do seem blown away by the reaction to this film because it's been astonishing three weeks number one in the states in a row, which is incredible list as well. I feel very ill having just said in this day and age. But it is very much that old that fashioned sleeper hit that agreed opening weekend and just kept on role in fields. This film feel significant. Yeah, it's significant. Of course. I mean, it was always going to be significant weather or not. There was a box office or not, because the very fact that it was created drew attention to the former drought of content and the continuing drought of content for Asians in English speaking cinema. So yeah, the people don't talk about that very much before because it's just wasn't because we do see Asians a lot in like American, but that's never their story. They're all supporting somebody else's story or were put into period pieces where we're like. Monks are like kung-fu experts, which is really cool. But like the native American kid. If you're asked to identify with people from the wonderful films of China, for example, that's not your story. And what it says is that other people assume that your cultures only skin deep that your story must be like that story. 'cause you looked like yet, nobody would say that about a a Texas guy versus like an English guy, just as you both look the same. We don't make us options about them, so so I think that's that was going to start a conversation. It always was going to. That's why it's so significant that this movie is set in contemporary times today with the contemporary problems and and and it's an international cast most of whom are hyphen. It's. Asian-australian British isn't Merican. You must been inundated with tweets and emails and letters and all sorts of people.
