Washington's NFL Team to Change Name After 87 Years
"Colorado's Morning news. Well, they don't know what their new name will be yet, but the NFL team in Washington no longer known as the red skins, the team is officially retiring the nick name and logo After major public pressure from fans and sponsors, Team owner Dan Schneider says the replacement will be announced in the coming weeks. So what do Native Americans think about the change? Let's get into that with Native Ways. Federation executive Director Carly Bad Heart Bull Goodman Me and Carly and thanks for joining us. Good morning. Thank you for having me. We should mention your group is focused on supporting Native American activism and education. So were you folks pushing for this name change? Absolutely are the members in our organization have been part of the movement for the native for this for this change in our native communities have have many folks and Leadership positions many native youth and particular native women across the country for decades now, Carly I'm curious, because I I think that you tell me it's more important what you think that it's the Redskins as a descriptive if they were the Washington If you want to, say native Americans, or even the Washington Indians, which we can talk more about that that would be a want to say, less offensive. It's the descriptive. It's like a majority visit. Not now, That's the biggest thing. It's not so much if they're honoring them. It's the fact that no, you don't use that term. The issue is that our people have been saying for again for decades that the name doesn't on arrest that term. Andi, I would add that There are other teams. There are other names, including some of the names that you lifted that were also were also not in favor of the issue is when you have a community that has been saying for for generations for decades that we are not honored by the use of these names that you need to listen. You need to listen when our community is saying that this is not representative of who we are. When you come from a community that is Is eatin a history of lack of representation of misrepresentation. It is really important to listen to us and to you hear us when we say that it's important for us, and it's important for our kids that Any representation that is out there in the media is adequate, not only adequate, but is also a celebrating who we are not Ah, stereo type, not You know, I'm misrepresentation or, you know, not making fun of who we are. Let's go through some of those names. The Atlanta Braves say they're not going to change their team moniker. Chicago Blackhawks. Kansas City Chiefs Cleveland Indians should they all change. You know? Yes. Honestly, I mean, I mean that, as far as I know, you know the Redskin Sorry. I hate even using that term. I shouldn't use that term. I should not even be saying that name. They haven't gone public with any information on what their new name with their new local will be accepted, say that they hope to honor native people and the military and so it's really important that we're having this further conversation. Because again, even though the Washington team is talking about changing the name, there's so much work yet to be done both with their name and with these other teams that you that you mentioned the remains concerning these communities about about what this means about the The history of Blanding in a way that that is said to honor native people. Even after community members leaders Jaime Time again have said that these names do not honor us. So we're hopeful that that you know a new name. A new logo with the national team will not continue this native imagery or thing or themes. We're hopeful that the team as well as these other teams will listen to native communities come back and talk to us. We have been saying for years on DH will come up with new branding altogether. You know, it's time to do the right thing. Otherwise, at some point, honestly, they're gonna have to do it all over again. That the you know, make the effort now and any abuse and this perpetuation He's racist stereotypes. Once it for all against
Journalists of Color
"Before the interviews I wanNA share my theory. For why all of this exploded for journalists of Color Right now? It goes back a few years. So many of us went from covering the first black president to covering Donald Trump. And ever, since trump came down that escalator, announcing his campaign back in Twenty fifteen, when he denounced Mexicans as drug traffickers rapist. When he was that he would build a wall at the border and that Mexico will pay for it. Those journalists were told to avoid using words like racist or lie to describe some of trump's worse behavior. That kind of self censorship, especially on race for a lot of us, it became untenable after we had to cover the death of George Floyd and report on that video of a black man, being choked to death for eight minutes. On top of that we are now dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which is laying bare racial inequities across this country. And Corinthian has given a lot of us time to sit and think. Notice what's going on in the world and in our lives and in our newsrooms? You have black journalists and other journalists of color who think of themselves as truth seekers in the same way that their white colleagues, too, but very often when they tell the truth about racism when they tell the truth about. Bright, white supremacy. They're labeled as activist. Highs! They dared to bring their blackness across the newsroom threshold. PSORIATIC McDonald's has been thinking a lot about race and the news. So I asked her as a black journalist in this moment. What does she want to see change so I would say what I want is actual structural change within newsroom leadership? I do not want the equivalent of painting black lives matter on a street in yellow letters, but in a newsroom. It's visible. By that doesn't really solve anything when it comes to pay discrepancies between. White male journalists and black female journalist who do the same job have the same level of experience and one is making thirty thousand dollars a year more than the other. The other thing is that. You cannot have. Newsroom leadership that is completely made up of six Cheddar straight white men. Even. Under straight white women. Zicklin or gender straight Whiteman that power needs to be distributed more equitably. You know the other thing died. I want to see I wanNA see US cover. Race honestly. right? Race isn't just something that black people, experience or something that non white experience, attempting that everyone experience and says and so. There needs to be a baseline of literacy rate when it comes to how we talk about race with an America how it operates within American history, and how that informs. President and what world. News media has played in that way. We have to consider that. The last time that we had a pandemic, the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic. We need to recognize that. The paper of record in Chicago the Chicago Tribune. Is Basically scapegoating black people who are fleeing the American south, basically saying Oh half a million darkies are basically invading Chicago. If that's objectivity as not the kind of objectivity that I want to participate in them. Yeah, yeah, I WANNA get personal a little bit You ended up being quoted in New York Times. Article about this reckoning talking about how you didn't have a great time at the Washington Post. You've tweeted about your experience as a black woman in newsrooms. What does this reckoning meant for you? And what have you been trying to get off your chest and this moment about your experience? In some of the newsroom's that we've been talking about my hope for this reckoning. is that. There is not one more class of you know young. Ernest! Twenty two year old coming out of journalism school I'm who basically have to go through this really damaging gauntlet. We're constantly sort of questioning yourself and your own worth and I think there are a lot of really talented journalists who have been driven from the field. Because at some point, they feel like they have to make a choice between their own mental health. Or being journalist. And they just self-preservation and I cannot blame them. and that is really a shame, because think about the people that those journalists now think about the stories that they could have told. The access they could have had picked the access to walk into certain spaces at their white colleagues cannot exactly and you know one of the ways, and this is not the only way that this is important, but one of the ways that this is important is. We need them to trust us. Our job is to tell their stories and to tell them accurately and to tell them fairly. And if people are are always getting pushed out the folks who might actually be able to empathize with them who know where they're coming from right I? There's a quote from their lake when I fall where she basically expresses the you know, she's probably the only person who covered public housing who's actually lived in public housing? That, yeah, that is. Expertise right that is. Valuable knowledge so I just I want us to be able to practice our profession with humanity. Yeah, and also it's like in this moment where it seems like more than ever before. At least in my lifetime, there is such a deficit of trust. Americans don't trust institutions. They don't trust journalism. They don't trust facts. Worst argument about whether or not mask can prevent the spread of Corona virus like in this environment if newsrooms don't act in fix some of this stuff. is going to create more mistrust in the media and these news outlets will become less relevant in a moment in which I would argue. They are needed more than ever before. Yes, and you know the thing is is and I've said this repeatedly at that American journalism does have a credibility crisis. The the credibility crisis that we have I think. Actually bears a lot of similarities to. Our current sort of Voter disenfranchisement problem. Being. In Journalism, we have not spent enough time. with the very same folks who are often disenfranchised when it comes to media coverage as well right. And when we think about the press and freedom of the press is an instrument of democracy we have to think about. enfranchising everyone, we have to think about making sure that they do find us credible. The folks. If they look at the newspaper, even look at a website or they listen to the radio and their conclusion is. That these entities are not telling the truth about them in their lives and held their lives are. For them yeah for them. That's a credibility issue for us. Yeah we can fix. It failed them. That means that. We have to develop far better relationships with folks who have historically been shunned or shut out of district of media coverage are only allowed to participate in very limited ways. You know I still very much believe in that adage, the journalism exist to comfort the afflicted and afflict comfortable. Thanks again to riot, not at McDonald's the culture writer for the undefeated and also this year. She was nominated a pilot sir. My mind. I wanted to hear from other journalists of color about their newsroom experiences. And they wrote in. Here if you, my name is Lavi Cima Guy side. I'm a naturalized citizen who came to this country as a young child. I worked at a bare he a newspaper for a long time and have fond memories of my time there. I had mostly white editors, and in fact, I've only had one non white supervisor in my over two decades in journalism. My name is John. Sepulvado, I mixed. I have Mexican Irish indigenous and Black Ancestry I worked in public media for fifteen years. There are tons of horror stories. There was the white woman editor who asked me if I like dog-fighting because she quote hurt. Might People like dogfighting? There was another white woman editor told me to smile more around the office because I quote have dark features and those dark features, scared herself and other white women around the office. One time a headline I, wrote for one of my own stories, led to a newsroom wide, meeting an emotional one, where a bunch of US had to persuade top editors to let us call the president's racism what it is! The most frustrating part was that I and others had to explain to our colleagues. Why our voices were important. And partly because they reflected the communities we covered. argued. Repeat, a thousand more stories like that. But at. A point I realized. That no matter what I did no matter how good I was no matter how hard I worked. I would always be seen. As something that is not. White. And my mobile was the leave the industry. All right time for a break. When we come back, we will hear from Latina, trailblazer who refused to leave the news business. Instead. She started her own media company to tell the stories that she wanted to tell. Hey another reminder asking you all to fill out that survey for us. Okay, it is anonymous.

School will start off our course in economics within workout for your brain how to decide what something newly costs for? Planet money from, NPR. People still find it really interesting salmon like I'm like no. No I. I was the first Latina in the newsroom at NPR ever to step foot. WHO WASN'T CLEANING IT? That was me right that that was that. Was this Latina? That is Maria. She's had a long career in media, not just here NPR but also at CNN NPS in two thousand ten. She founded her own company for total media. And she has a memoir. It's called once. I was you that comes out in September, but most of you probably know Maria. As the host of a very long running public radio show turned podcast from NPR and through media. It's like new USA mighty. Hossack Latino USA has been around since the early nineties. It is attributed by NPR. which is why you hear NPR in the credits, but that will be changing USA is moving. As distributor. It means nothing's GonNa Change for you. Our listener that our audience is going to get way way way bigger. We're very excited. Announcement might have been confusing for listeners, but don't worry like. She said you'll still be able to hear the show. But the Journal of Color, especially in public radio that move meant that NPR was losing a hugely influential show dedicated to covering Latino stories in the US. And from its founding NPR has been well bad on race. More than seventy percent of NPR's newsroom is white and of the sources you here on NPR's air, those voices they are more than eighty percent white. People of Color who work in public media? We have been saying for years. Fix this including Maria Hosa. We're asking the question. Are you listening? Are you hearing? And that his own ready a power dynamic that is wrong. This notion is the assumption that they the they will always have the power I. Ask Maria what Latino USA leaving NPR means for this network, but I I asked her about blazing trails. One could see your path to be one of color who found her own company as a shining success, but one could also see your path as proving that the conventional spaces in media can accommodate of voice like you the way they should you know like. I'm so proud of what you're doing, but also the fact that you have to make your own production company shows at the NPR's and the PBS's and the CNN in many ways. Don't get it and can't help people like you tell the stories that you need to tell. I was thinking about that as I was thinking about our interview Sam because. My husband calls me Aguirre, a warrior, and then as I was thinking about our conversation, Sam. I was like well. That's great i. like that, but you know what I don't want. Journalists of color to have to be warriors at into order to be able to work as To work as journalists of Contians, who can bring their entire cells into the news room? Who are going to be seen who are going to not only be seen and heard but actually. Put into positions of power to be the ones who are listening and making the decisions about. Yeah, we want that story on the front page and the headline is going to say that exactly. I want you you know everyone has been using it. Everyone's been going to twitter sharing their reckoning story, the slight the knocked in that promotion. The being told you can't do this do that. Give me one of your reckoning stories from your career when I when I come to this country, I'm born in Mexico. My whole family's born in Mexico. We're raised on south side of Chicago. You know sixties and seventies, but as Mexican immigrants we also understood the essential nature of journalism and American independent journalism and so. My father was watching. Meet the press every Sunday and we were watching the today show and we watched sixty minutes, and because of the fact that it was so American in holding people accountable and I was like that's what journalism is so long. Story Short is many years later actually a decade ago go to sixty minutes when I'm out of work and needed a job actually and. They basically like look, can you Can you come back and talk to us? When one of the old white guys get secret is really and I, said and I just remember like. Like am I supposed to laugh? It's funny. Is that a joke as being? and. As we do in the media's people of Color, 'cause we're really good at laughing things off. Like. Yeah. Banter you know the the the the the we're so smart. On. Exactly Racism! Exactly. And I got into the subway at fifty ninth street onto my apartment in Harlem and I cried on the train. and. I was just like, but I am not. You know I'm knocking to let this take me down. And that was the moment that I decided to create food. Media Winds Rams history. Takes over Latino, USA. And Expands Latino USA grows the show and let the USA's audience twenty seven years in. Is in a continual upward trajectory. You love to see it. As I. Want to ask more about what needs to happen. We are in this moment now. Where so many journalists coming forward with their stories? But it's still unclear what newsroom leaders will actually do to fix this stuff you have been on all sides of media for profit nonprofit. Give me like a checklist of the big three or four things that mass media should do right now to effectively respond to the issues raised in this reckoning. Feel like this is a moment to be having that difficult conversation, which is pushing this reckoning that we're talking about to another level. I'm going. Give you an example, Sam it brings me joy, it brings me no joy to have to ask white men in senior editorial positions how they consider my role as a Mexican immigrant woman journalist. In relation to a president who insults every single one of those things that I do? And and And basis a lot of that on his white supremacy. Which is very challenging word to even use in our newsrooms right, but yeah. I don't feel comfortable saying it. I want you to feel uncomfortable having to answer that question. Because his white supremacy does not impact you in the way, it impacts me, and I am a journalist just like you. I am an equal journalist just like you so now. You helped me to figure out. Harmon handle that because that that impacts our might quote unquote objectively, you have to be able to recognize that you do not have an ownership of activity or an ownership of the media or an ownership of public media, or it's not yours to share yeah. Did any of the issues we've discussed about. In diversity and Unfair situations that journals of have to deal within this industry. Did those factor into your business decision. To leave NPR ex. Look I've had you know NPR's my family? IF NPR calls I'm going to say when you I was absolutely and Bureau Sam he's my family. You know we hung out once, but he's. He's my brother. Because we're digesting PR so NPR's my family Mi. Familia was my first job. But You know I started a company. And I have a team of very savvy business and media executives journalists. And when they said look, we have an opportunity here in in a competitive marketplace A. Somebody PR X.. Who wants to really go big? Yeah, I will say you know they are all of these. Underground email channels and slack channels and discussion boards were journalists of color are coming together to talk about all these issues and there's been a lot of chatter about your show. What says about NPR yeah? Why am I so disconnected? Oh my God. I thought I. Thought I was like connected because I'm on twitter and I got a fat. And what folks have been saying? People who love your show Oh my goodness. They're saying well. This speaks to the larger problems. NPR has always had with content may for people of Color. They don't market it enough. They don't support it enough. You have these program. Directors at various stations put a show like yours on at not great hours. This is the stuff that people are saying. Do you I mean like to the extent that you can elaborate on it, you know. Did you feel like NPR? Neglected or didn't promote enough your type of show. So of these issues at play with the race and diversity in space like NPR. Again. Let New USA right now is growing an audience at kind of extraordinary numbers I think we're one of the few public radio programs or previously distributed by NPR. That is growing an audience at these numbers. And so the fact that. We made this decision. Says everything about. WHAT NPR. Kind of thinks. About letting USA. Now having said that I don't know you know I. Don't know the internal finances at NPR. Maybe NPR's is is really facing a a real financial challenges that I'm not privy to. And so you know, but but when you're thinking about AH, show, that has this kind of. Audience Commitment There was a point not long ago. When one of your colleagues called me up, actually she works in. She's a Latina colleague at NPR in the newsroom, and she called me up and she said. Do you think that Latino USA has been this incredibly successful because of NPR or despite NPR. And no one had asked me that and I kind of like. ooh And I said well actually despite. Despite NPR, do you think you know 'cause? There are a lot of shows not produced by NPR. Distributed by NPR. Do, you think other shows like that in your same boat that were hosted by white people or felt to maybe India leadership more mainstream. Do you think they got more support than your show did pound for pound? Yeah How does that make you feel? Like I said, that's why. I didn't. See I've been feeling this for a long time, my love. News, so Gimme a word for the emotion. Well right now I'm glad that I'm with a partnership with Pr X.. That's not gonNA units not on the table so I'm like I'm looking to the future. That's why I'm like yeah I'm all about like? It's all about the dodge this morning, boxing teacher. was making us do the we've the. We've the constant, which by the way is really really hard, and that's just how I feel is a journalist of color in a survivor Mexican immigrant woman in this like it's always like whoo. Okay well and so. That stuff that you're saying like. How does it make me? That's rolled off me a long time ago, and it is a central part of what has moved me as a journalist as a woman of color in this country is that. Is like. Oh, you're going to try to silence me or tell me that I'm not objective or tell me that I have an agenda or tell me that is not going to be successful or tell me. Okay I might go home and cry. But I'm not GONNA give up. Thanks, again to Maria Hinojosa. She's the host of the Tino USA. We asked NPR for a response to what Maria told us and they gave us this statement. We have the highest respect and admiration for the Latino USA team and from Maria Hinojosa. We are proud. That Latino USA originated at NPR member station, K. U. T., and that since nineteen, ninety-four NPR has been the program's national distribution partner today, hundreds of NPR member stations bring the show to their listening communities. We are grateful. Maria entertain who are produced a consistently wonderful show and nurtured journalist who have gone on to work all over the public radio system. We are glad public radio listeners will continue to hear Latino. USA on their public radio stations across the nation. All right now. We're going to have a chat with someone who just began working with NPR Kelly. McBride NPR's newest public editor. I WanNa talk with her. About one particular part of this entire debate, the way in which we've been taught as journalists to do our jobs that most fundamental level leads to systemically racist outcomes. I am talking specifically about the idea of journalistic objectivity. This idea that reporters only report the facts. They keep themselves out of the story, and they eliminate all biased in their coverage. A lot of folks say well. That only works if you're man and straight. And White. I wanted to find out. Why are journalism so entrenched in objectivity and whether or not this standard is fair, so I went to one of the top journalism at experts in the country I am the senior vice president at the POYNTER institute. I am the chair of the Craig Newmark Center Ethics in leadership at the Poynter Institute and I am also the public editor for NPR that Kelly McBride. Kelly has advised newsrooms about difficult journalism ethics problems for years, so it made. Made, sense to begin by asking Kelly for her definition of objectivity in journalism, it really means that you will objectively pursue the facts in order to determine the truth, and there's all sorts of things that go into that right like there's how you frame the story how you identify who you're going to interview, and then really important is who else is involved in the story. So who edits it because that the the safety nets that are created in newsrooms are meant. To help an individual program against her own bias now the problem is if all the safety nets have the same biases that that doesn't happen right and that's. That's exactly what's been happier. Also objectivity has come to mean certain different things for different journalists. There are some. Who say well objectivity means that you have to. Pretend! That kind of you don't exist, and you have to just simply say what these powerful people are saying doing. You don't provide context you don't provide analysis. It's a kind of. Totally taking yourself all the way out of it to the point where you won't even tell people if you vote or not. And I think. This is the thing for me like there's so many different interpretations of what objectivity means, yet you know that's actually kind of a confederation of two different principals in journalism, so one is the principle of objectivity in this idea that that we are pursuing the truth in spite of our own biases, and that that we actually promised, swear to God that we're going to get it right because we have all these safeguards in place, even though they've failed numerous times in the past. But the other thing is is that in American journalism in particular? It was built on this business principle of aggregating A. Politically diverse audience, and then selling that audience to advertisers, so in in Europe you see much more you see much more of the journalism coming through a political lens because that's just how the business model grew up over there, but over here especially as in different markets, you went from multiple newspapers to a single newspaper. There was this motive that was really a business motive that you would bring in the entire political spectrum and if you were going to do that, you needed to convince that audience that you in the newsroom didn't have. Any particular biases it is refreshing to hear you as a leader in the industry acknowledged that some of this is about the principles and bedrocks of our journalism, and some of it's about business, and at the end of the day for whatever reason we have ended up with a definition of objectivity. That is as much about business as it is about telling the truth and I think what frustrates so many journalists, somebody younger journalists, journalists of color or women require journalists as at newsroom leaders are resistant to acknowledge that I read NPR's social media policy, and it's couched in terms of ethics and morality and idealism. But I also know that part of it is the bottom line is. Not Do anything of the public facing person at NPR. That would possibly damage NPR's revenue streams. And I mad. They don't just say that. Yeah? They don't mean to say that they. Don't I mean that's the thing is they? Don't. They really do believe, and I actually believe also that there is. That there is a line somewhere that we shouldn't cross, and maybe it is way up the continuum on just. If you're a political reporter. You can't help people who you're voting for. Maybe the line is all the way over there. Right, because of imagine that like if you were a political reporter in you were covering. Trump's campaign and you again. I'm voting for Biden though I was that guy. Did you tell people out loud. I didn't tell folks voting for in two thousand sixteen, and I wouldn't but I think gets. Those are the ones where I think everyone can agree, but there's there's there's other things like how much of me do I. Bring to a story when I'm covering police violence against black men. Am I allowed to say that's racist. Because I know what racism is experienced, it trust me and don't make me say racially tinged. Like those, and that's where it gets murkier well. You know you know where I. I experienced this. Yeah, so when gay marriage was was a hot hot issue, right? They were different cities or states that were making gay marriage legal. The Supreme Court hadn't yet decided in San Francisco the mayor of San Francisco. made it legal and a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle on a Saturday after weeks of covering it, the City Hall reporter went down and got a marriage license, and she was taken off the beat. Wow, and as in as an ethicist, right is a journalism ethicist. I was like wait a second. That can't be right. because. She was exercising in San Francisco. What was a legal right? You don't mean you didn't tell people who'd been divorced. They couldn't cover this issue because they'd you know somehow. Defiled the sanctity of marriage by? Getting divorced. So that was, that was where realized that you cannot penalize people for who they are. That's not fair. Yeah, because you end up with the only people that are untainted enough to do all the work are people who are only straight are people who are only men are people who have only gone to college and has a certain pedigree people who are an the deaths a problem, so bias is to right. It's just that we don't well. That's the thing, but these leaders aren't seeing those. Yeah, because they look just like them. I think now what is required to speak to the Syria. Systemic issues being raised in this reckoning. Going to have to be an acknowledgement that the movement toward writing these wrongs. It's going to be in some ways painful and you should do it anyway. From your conversations with newsroom leaders across the country. Do you think they're ready to accept that idea that this might hurt that? It might not just be. A statement and everyone shakes hands, and says sure good now now I mean nobody wants to voluntarily sign up for something painful. You do it because you know that what comes on the other side is worth head. There's individuals in every single newsroom who are part of the problem. Then somebody has to tell those people that if they want to keep their jobs, they have to stop being part of the problem, and that means that they're either going to have to be quiet. Or they're going to have to change or leave. Just leave well. That's I mean if they want to keep their job right like. Yeah and I've seen people. Who are these problem, people? I don't think I've ever seen any of them. Actually chain, but I've seen some of them. Learn to be quiet and let other people lead. And then they actually become the beneficiary. Of what comes after yeah. And then I. Think also so many lessons of me too I. Think are applicable to this meteoroid. Me To kind of work. Because a lot of folks were just literally canceled and they had to go, they were shamed. They were fired. And you said you can't be here anymore. And it was painful for them, and probably all the folks that liked them in love them but like. Sometimes, it's just that yeah. So my last question for you back to these two ideals that butt heads this idea of objectivity. But also this business idea of needing to be somewhat neutral to appeal to a large audience. And reworking probably reassessing, what objectively means a newsroom? What advice would you give to newsroom leaders? Writing up that next ethics guideline for their journalist about quote, Unquote Objectivity Post reckoning. Yeah, so this is where I'm supposed to come through with something really profound and I mean I. I am I. Am humble enough to say. That I don't have the answer yet. But I'm also arrogant enough to say that I believe after working through lots of really really hard ethics problems with newsrooms that I think we are going to find the answer and I think it's going to start by. Recognizing that there is a difference between. Revealing political bias. and. Revealing lived experience. And we need to start there and say your lived. Experience should not count as political bias. Thanks again to Kelly McBride joining us and thanks to everyone who, over the last week or so shared very very personal stories about life as a person of color in the newsroom. I heard from colleagues as well. And one thing one of those colleagues told me about all of this. She said so much of this work is convincing journalist. who think they've been doing it right for so long that maybe in some ways they've been doing it wrong. And then she said to me. This phrase really stuck with me, she said. How do you argue with the fish about the water there's. I. Don't know just yet how to do that. It's pretty difficult. It seems frustrating,

We launched a few years ago. Eleven at which point the interviewer commonly risk indices name, says quote. Wait this. You have to explain if the last one was OPEC eleven. How come this one is sixteen, so Harari says quote. It's a lovely name affects sixteen I love it. Who says the numbers have to come in order and leaves skin, says quote no. No No, you have to explain this thing. You had nine Victoriano fake eleven, and then you skipped. Tawfiq Sixteen Harari says yeah. Is there anything wrong with that?

Documentarian Cristina Costantini
"Your, First Film Science Fair at Sundance Wins Big award. The audience loves it. What did you learn from that first foray into directing? It's a lot more fun than investigative journalism I would say No, but I think I learned kind of the power of a hopeful story. I think hope and love. Are you know in short supply right now? And these kinds of stories can really change the way people think of the world and think of themselves, and so Walter came out of that in a way. I was looking for another story. That was also from my childhood. You know I started thinking what other worlds do I know really well. Not Everybody knows what other worlds made me feel warm and fuzzy as a kid and I think Walter Metadata was part of that. World for me, I grew up watching him every day as a kid with my grandmother and you know, he reminds me of my grandmother in many ways. He's the same age as my grandma there they have the same Hairdo, and so I started to wonder whatever happened to him, and you know in many ways he was he is. He was one hundred years ahead of his time. The first person I've ever seen that was gender queer. What we'd call now. It's just inspirational looking back. It's like. Could you were doing that at that time? You know nineteen forty in Puerto, Rico. You were being Walter McCullough. It's it's. Really. Inspirational so that's when I set out to find him. You set out to find out. What does that mean? So I started asking around univision and fusion and. Nano actually told me not Avila told me that there's a producer new. Who's also obsessed with Walter? Who you should talk to about this? Maybe he knows something so I called Alex, and he's like this is the weirdest thing I have. Another director who I'm supposed to talk to in ten minutes about doing a documentary about Alternate Telo, and I was like who is this person and his name is creamy taps, and he directed a film called. Dolphin, lover, which was a big fan of it's about a man who falls in love with Dolphin in the Florida like seaworld. And I had loved that film and I was like Oh amazing. I can't I mean I would love to talk to him. And we decided basically a ten minutes later on a phone call that we would all do the project together and yeah. It's been incredible experience Kareem track down. The niece of Walter through an estate sale, and then set up a phone call with Walter and it was. Yeah it was after the suit was. It was really insane to talk to. Walter Mark on the phone for the first time, and he said yes. Well that unprecedented access is notable because he is an has always been intensely private. So, how did you three persuade him to allow you to make the film? We rehearsed for that first conversation for hours and hours. What are the possible questions you could ask us? How would we answer it? You know what is what? What's the best angle on all of his questions? And we got on the phone, and he said Okay I. Have One question for you and we were like Mrs it. It's GonNa be really hard, and he's like. What are your astrological signs and so he went around. And like I'm a libra careens libra and Alex's deteriorates, and he said okay. That's great sounds good. I would love to do this film with you, so he was. He was in like in in from day one. He was psyched, but his idea of a documentary realized very quickly was very different from our idea he wanted. He was in front of a lens for fifty years. He was the most cameras trained person you can imagine. It's truly insane, and he has fifty years of rehearsed answers. He knows what he's going to say. To every question, you could ask him, and so it was really a process of spending a lot of time with him. At first, he thought this was going to. Just you know he was going. Going to be in full makeup and just telling the stories he always tells and I think it took a lot of time to explain to him that this might be different that this is you know we wanna see who you actually are without your makeup. What you do in your normal life and talking about bad stuff, particularly offensive to him. He did not want to talk about anything bad. You and that is the story of his life. You know he a lot goes wrong. He loses everything and even to get him to talk about. That was very difficult, so that was a big stumbling block for us in the first. Twenty interviews that we did with them so We've probably chat with him for like thirty five or forty days, and whenever we the cameras on kind of turned into an interview I remember. We told him once that we just wanted to. What he? What would he be doing if we weren't here? And he said reading a book, so he opened a book, and he started reading it, but he it was like onstage. He's A. He's a strained theater. Actor says like stage reading, or he was like having a conversation with a bunch was reading with his is.

I guess what makes a person like that? How did all this stop for him? Well he he was as he freely admits he was struggling with drug and alcohol abuse and he worked in. The trucking industry was a truck driver. And it was a fella truckdrivers. Someone would he'd worked with etta trucking company whose facilities sort of interest in this and have that conversation. What was the bitch? Yeah I was pretty simple. It was a few hundred bucks main And for a main sort of Jamie circumstances as he said to us. It's like a million dollars when you've got the sheriff on your back and your courage Jew and debt collectors chasing you. Four hundred bucks is a pretty decent. Some go need help. Run run the joint Get a job ever Blah Blah Blah. When he signed up to do you have any understanding of what he was signing what he was getting in getting himself involved in on what. The responsibilities were pace as definitely not inclined to believe. You might think that. Hey like others. We spoke to really had any conception of what would come said. What was it understanding? It's a good question. I think to human to others that we've spoken to. It was just. They didn't think beyond putting Pace Viper and what was that first company that he ended up signed signed up to it was a company called Chew. Bt Bulk Transport so it was ostensibly a trucking company. What came next was just the one company with a mall. Well as Jamie tells it he he signed up for one company and then over time Lettuce started arriving which indicates he was infected. Director of a number of other companies stuck his world. Wars in the pressure's gone law. Indict much the word that Eloi Nasons not Roy went over the second and third company? Coming in on things on sort of words and decide Buddy Roy on us. We opened them up from full time. Job Nixon I got knowing and Guy Freedom quite often dame point why the hell and who's been signing for I say these forgery invo heavy responsible for other companies had been responsible if audience on anything. Did you ever have any experience before being director of a company or Hell APPLEFORD system works no not run as Providence? Lumo and Shit like that when in company. They'll just call him. Mike money a not now the on you about transport is Jordan tracks lying tracks so nat lives with the forklifts gay as for the other side of it. Nobody already I guess at first blush like Kay. What's the problem with being a company direct What kind of companies these though? What kind of state are they in? So most of the companies that I've identified as being suppose involved the company's Piper basically just on pipe did that I have any physical presence. A lot of them were addressed to particular addresses which is where the people who signed up as company directors. Were leaving at the time. There's a few places that have been described to me as Halfway houses boarding houses There was one guy. Who's the director of six or seven companies in the address on the acid records? Fahim was the Salvation Army homeless hostel So they didn't they didn't exist in any real since They were show companies. Was that debt involved with any of these companies. A lot of these companies the majority of them went into liquidation owing anything from a few thousand dollars up to a million or million and a half. So yes they they. The vast majority of did have attached to them when they went on. So what were the consequences for Jamie? I mean there's lettuce showing up shore. What does that mean? Well it means that Hayes on on the hook for the debts that were incurred by those companies when he was the director of them. So when you say that Johnny was on the hook for this dead what what is the like. What'S THE WORST CASE SCENARIO? Here like his. Hey could he go to prison like what is? Where does that Roy go? Well if if you leave Johnny one second and you look at another campus new interview for the story Jackson. He was my bankrupt by the Texas Because he was had been saint. Lettuce sign you. I will this money as you in your role as records company. And then they bankrupted he also another dummy director for a free fury he was also bankrupted by the Texas and a third another dummy directory expected Lisa Baker. She received letters saying containing fines and as she told us that. You know some of those phones. well sorry potentially trek up to a couple of years in prison. Some of the things that she was being sent letters. I what did all those people who you found who'd been targeted in this way to be dummy direct as having common they were certainly What you would describe as paper from the margins of society. The drug uses the homeless alcoholics. Don employed Pretty much anybody who would be happy to take a few hundred dollars for for pregnant. I'm on a PACER.
"director" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Of those things that came out came out before people saw the movie. I don't really believe people think that after seeing the film but I do think it's divisive. I think you know they're set famous quote with sometimes you know Art Comforts the disturb and disturbs. The comfortable. And I think You know choker tended to do that with some people to us. It was really. It was surprising the reaction because didn't feel like by making a movie about something. You're celebrating it you know. Representation presentation is not endorsement. So it just. It always felt very off to us before I'd seen joker which again I want to mention. I liked a lot On just two Superior Clear on the direction from which my questions are are coming I'd already heard reports but like as a too violent while a cause violence and so the trailers I saw before joker we're trailers like for movies with like action movies of a lot of Siegi so I remember like one scene where somebody's basically run over by like It's it's either a tank or some kind of like large futuristic Iran vehicle and after being run over to gets up and starts running away and I thought like this is absurd. The there are so many movies. He's like this and movie theaters. Now where where people just can take any kind of violence and still survive and it's so unrealistic that why would realistic depiction the consequences of violence. Be The movie that presents the problem. I know it shocked us as well. You know when we came out in a in a summer after another Rambo movie or John Wick Film and again. I think these films can exist should exist people. There's an audience for them. But you you talk about celebrating. Violence and joker is woods. Joker is is was guilty of is presenting real world implications of that violence and to us. And maybe this short-sighted that felt like such a more responsible way of dealing with violence I think in the end of the move by the end of the movie. Seven people die in our film All people that did him wrong. Nobody random dies. He doesn't he doesn't shoot any you know his head people who who screwed him over whether he's right or wrong that's another question. But he's not killing people randomly It's not you so Large level mass killings as a guy. I mean this is essentially about the movie being inspired by taxi driver but really we were inspired by a a time of films and I would say there's as much death wish in this film. It's a revenge film as much as a taxi. Driver King of comedy network. One flew over the CUCKOO's looseness all these movies that inspired us But anyway I it just felt really surprising does when we started getting attacked for it being too violent. When you're like wait wait a minute? It's interesting that you say that the movie is so much about you. Know empathy in the lack of empathy in the world. And then your movie comes out and people a- so divided added about it and there's so much anger between the two sides the people who love it and the people who hate it and think it's a reprehensible movie like everything is so divisive now. Yes yes how did you react to that. How did you feel about like witnessing is really divisive reaction to your movie like on on Twitter or oh you know well? Luckily I'm not on twitter right right right those able to avoid all that but I definitely I definitely got heard back about it from friends friends of mine that are on twitter. That love to report when you're trending for some reason But but yeah no it was. It's a tough thing to to go through. You know because because we know are we knew our intentions in in making the movie It kinda bummed us out that it was so divisive but it does seem to be that we live in an age of outrage rage. Now when people look for things to be outraged about and they're going to be outraged. Just about that comment. Probably you know it's it's it's become a thing The good news. Is You know the movie obviously struck a chord and people were having discussions about it and arguing about its merits important about outrage outrage. Yeah it really is so yeah. It was not lost on us but it was something to go through for sure and I. It was stressful but it was also at the same time. Luckily the movie was released. Luckily most people sought for what it is a movie about about childhood trauma. A movie about the lack of love in the world a movie about the loss of empathy in society. Most people saw that for what it is. I can't tell hell you the amount of emails or messages. I got on on my instagram of people talking about how what a wonderful depiction of mental illness. Yes it is you know the the thing that seemed to resonate most with people is when Arthur writes in his notebook. He writes The worst part about having a mental illness. People expect. Expect you to behave as if you don't and that really spoke to people that have it because it's your suffering but you're not wearing a cast your suffering but that you're not in a wheelchair so people think what's wrong with you. You're fine and I think that really connected and and resonated with people in a meaningful way so so that kind of thing makes it worth it and not not that that that it erases everything else but you know it it it connected with the people that had to connect with. Let's take another short break here and then we'll be right back if you're just joining US my guests Todd Phillips Director of Joker. We'll be right back. This is fresh air support for this podcast. The CAST and the following message come from the American Jewish World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at Aj J. W. S. dot.

NPR to hear your local NPR station. And all your favorite. NPR shows as well. This is fresh air. And if you're just joining us my guest is Todd Phillips Director of Joker. He also directed the hangover films. You've said that there are a lot of films and filmmakers who were influential on you. In the making of joker ochre but adding the one that really stands out the most Scorsese in terms of impart how the film looks. You know. You've got Deniro in the movie. And he was in taxi driver and King of comedy. There are some shots and some things that are so Reminiscent of shots in taxi driver. And even there's two times times like at the end of taxi driver Travis. Bickel puts his finger to his head as if the finger as a gun and then within some he kind of pulls the trigger. And this you you know imaginary gun so another lex quasi references the fact that There's a a late night tonight. Show kind of variety show that's Arthur's Arthur's mother's favourite show and offers grown up watching it and he loves it too they watch it every night together and in King of Comedy Scorsese's film Deniro as is the obsessive fan of the late night. Show which in that movie is is hosted by someone who play by Jerry. Lewis and Deniro kidnaps the Jerry Lewis Character. Her And and near goal is to be on that show himself and in joker The joker character gets on that that late night show that Deniro for very misguided reasons on on the hosts part so just WanNa play a short clip. And this is you know so So you know Arthur. The Joaquin Phoenix character. The the joker character shows up after his invited on the show and he's wearing so you know joker makeup and and you'll look the full luck and the producer of the show. The Fred de Cordova type laid by Marc Marc Maron is like horrified and the Johnny Carson type played by Deniro's kind of like. Oh No we can make this work. This could be fun. The audience will enjoy it. I think think there's one more thing we need to set up an town. I'm GonNa let you do it and give away as much as you want to about Why they're suspicious of him dressed as a clown well? Basically that day there happened to be a big Protest Planet City Hall. So there's a lot of people dressed up as clowns in this joker look which was of course inspired by him early early on this description given of of him from those initial Subway killing so you'll hear them reference you'll hear Marc Maron reference this sort of protests. That are going on in the city city in how somebody actually that day. Not Not by Arthur but was killed by a policeman in a confrontation. So here's that scene between The host De Niro whose name is Murray. The producer played by Marc Maron and Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur joker. What's with the face the mean you part of the protests? No No. Please don't believe anything Sunday Sunday because my act for your act and you hear what happened on the subway some clown got kills wherever that either with it you know I had. Yeah this one tell the audience go crazy. If you put this guy I mean maybe maybe for EPA SEGMENT G. It's GonNa work schoolwork going to go with Marie. Murray couple of rules no no cursing wolf color material. We do a clean show. Okay go on right. After Dr South I loved our good. It could come and get you good luck. Thanks very good one small thing when you bring me out. Can you introduce me as joker. What's wrong with you real name? That's what you call me on the show. A joker do you remember. I don't know if you say so. Can you don't jokers thank Mary okay. So that's a scene. From joker my guess is the director and Co writer. Todd Phillips what was it like to direct both Deniro and Phoenix Walking Phoenix together with a both able to arrive at the place they needed. Did to be In terms of getting the character in the same way at the same time you know like some after like to take a lot of take some actors go to extremes to get roles both phoenix and Deniro have Either lost or gained.

funded this information campaign targeting the public and weakening public health laws vaccination requirements have been commonplace in the US the generations and exemptions were granted only for legitimate medical reasons however in my home state of Texas the number of unvaccinated children his spikes since twenty two thousand three when the Texas legislature expanding the exemptions to

development through the lens of influenza for the hilt is among us the flu just lays out for several the flu just lays us out for several days with no lasting sad if it's hot for the very young the elderly pregnant women and other vulnerable groups the flu can be deadly the centers for disease control recorded an estimated four forty eight point eight million illnesses and seventy nine thousand

September one who's been at least one death and seventy three hospitals rations from the flu however these numbers would be far worse if we did not have vaccines vaccination is by far the most the best flu prevention measure we can have today it's easy to forget the little over a hundred years ago the world faced one of the deadliest pandemics in history the nineteen eighteen H. one in one epidemic also known as Spanish flu it killed an estimated fifty million people worldwide including roughly six hundred and seventy five thousand people United States medical technology and countermeasures at the time were limited the isolation and quarantine influenza vaccines did not exist and I antibiotics had not been fully developed yet thankfully due to basic research advancements were made both in treatment and prevention the flu the development of vaccines is placed played an important role in reducing and eliminating deadly disease I can still recall my father stories about how late summer and fall were terrifying time as a child because of the threat of polio during those seasons lucky for me I do not have did not have to experience this fear because of the first polio vaccine being available the United States in nineteen fifty five and thanks to widespread vaccination polio it's been nearly eradicated the United States just thirty three cases reported in twenty

"Danny alpha on my hand in hand like uh-huh kumbum didn't they didn't i loved going anyway. Where are you going to say more about not really really. I mean pretty much. I like tim burton but things have changed and i'm not as infatuated as once i was the thing that's that's cool with him. I think is that like even though i think it's a far cry from what his original works were. It's like he's still get to work and i still think he has a knack for holding adding onto a genre that is his is allowed like like it is in a sense not to work kind of thing where it's like. He does a gothic dark comedy stuff. It's like but it's also like versus is how fincher does dark comedy versus cohen brothers dark comedy. It's a fincher burns stamp on it for sure yeah like that. You can't really i don't know if there's any other the director right now that can replicate his aesthetic. You know what i mean like. No there's a lot of people like if you took a cohen film and offender film made them my closer together like they kind of look the same but but there's no way in hell that a timber and film will look like another filth which next to it this is just a tiny little shoutout to nerd on update. We had a question for mitchell g about why make anything when everyone's already made stuff that is a great point to tie into it of like. Everyone has their own stamp on something. Go listen to that episode targeted in-depth whatever yeah yeah between all in mine. Mine's a little nicer well. Yes i agree with that will be based on science the warriors second boy john carpenter charlotte anthony seeps caves crusaders long bomb john. John carpenter is famous for me. You've heard me talk a lot about one of his films. Specifically podcast is a fucking thing is just thing is but he's also famous for things is like a halloween escape from new york the fog christine <hes> they live memoirs of invisible man the in the mouth of madness <hes> <hes> so he's got a big list of words and most of them he actually writes himself and also does the soundtrack for wow so he's kind of this renaissance man <hes> <hes> and he's highly into practical effects which for me is a golden ticket to me like you're seriously like i i really respect respect people who of course at the time they had to but they're also on the verge of switching to digital effects and he's still chose to stay away from it for me. This guy is a master of suspense <hes> i i think there's very few directors who can so so well tie a story together and make you feel like you can't breathe for two hours the way john carpenter can and you can watch his growth which is really nice from from halloween to things like the thing and they live and all his films have sort of a purposeful campinas to it that i really enjoy. It's not too much but it's enough to know that you can see where he started right. You can see that like when they made halloween. There's no budget and he just had a story and so he he wrote it. He directed it and he wrote the soundtrack himself and shot it out here so like i really respect over the last couple years. Tom and i have discussed disgust and he's seen my growth. Tom specifically in my trust and horror film directors and because a lot of the time they are they start in this place where like horror doesn't didn't get a budget..

"He. Does that's still a bit of a character. He's ten being real mid west nice about this right. It's like we're trying to respect his craft but the thing is like enormous society. It's asshole moves. It's a different culture. Well yeah have you seen jeremy the sushi yeah and like the whole thing with the dad being the top sushi chef and high of being like this top animator like everyone in the world already has this ideology of the sun. He's not going to be even half as good. That's just something that the japanese culture buys into in america we don't have that ideology <hes> but then that's kind of respect and understanding that gives to higher praise and understanding of the engagement that we should have with media <hes> but yeah like it was like he was there during the film that goro was directing and he was looking at one of the backer artists and on the back rooms drew like open field and he put the the truck over it because they do multi-layer animation and said that truck's too big that trucks and take the entire frame and then you just see the enemy just slowly put it away and it's just like such like a intense and smoke because you're kind of like this is how they operate right and he'll like look at storyboards like this person looked like there look just saw dead person and this person should the full of life like why are these things not full of life. Why isn't that mistake but it's kind of against those signatures right yeah go ahead. I was going to say that like i remember <hes>. It was like these guys were really excited to show miyazaki these like what they had meeting in graphics and it was like a zombie dombi dragging itself across the floor and like the movements were really lifelike. Muzhaqi was pissed. Whoa more more than a little. He was like i have a friend who is disabled and can never want <hes>. How dare you show this to me. He went off on them like you could tell everyone was like wide eyed staring at the floor and that's like it's one of those things where there's so much about me as ocoee that i truly truly love but it's a situation where you know there are just some things that he will never be capable of making too because he hates that kind of thing. We're never going to see that kind of aesthetic from me as ocoee yeah not that i'm upset about that yeah but no i was gonna say bring it back a two to him as a director. What what specifically do what draws you to him. As your favorite director defend testicle realities realities that he creates i gave myself little like two lines or couple lines for each director that i really like and fantastical reality was the first thing that came to mind because because everything is set in a very real world lake even though it has all the like whimsey of conservatism. Yes yeah shintoism. It's got but it it's all very grounded like he does a very good job of taking all of these these concepts that are never would never be real in this world world but makes them feel like oh yeah that makes sense rats person yeah like a radish the radish spirit he takes a little spark can make it into an entire story yeah yeah yeah i think it goes to to mention that easy set it up.

"Away my neighbour totoro princess-mononoke. All ghibli films say the one santiz is delivery speed. I actually haven't seen that yet. We're going <hes> but <hes> so there's so much intentional intentional intentional choices that are in there that i it like hit me in the face. I had never been so intrigued by so many purposeful decisions assyrians. I actually bought a book on miyazaki that are it's just a compilation of all the interviews with miyazaki and he's a very interesting person. He's so he told us. He didn't say that he said i think my son made an honest film. Now he's made one. I think he should stop yeah. He's he's a his his opinions or heart a preparing for i saw a documentary where it was just him and his son was doing a <hes> his first film right no after his as after his frail has first because he had commercial success but not critical success the next film supposed to be high l. wrote the screenplay for and then goro gomez ocoee was going to direct it and part of directing studio ghibli is at the director does the storyboards right <hes> and those are sometimes eighty thousand storyboards is a lot <hes> or like hundreds of thousands of story anyways but like he would talk to everyone in the studio except his son for the entire production it would like their relationship is intense messed up the produce africa's name but he's like the big middleman oh man between everybody and was ocoee. <hes> i mean it doesn't surprise me because based on based on what i've read. It makes sense that every scene can be purposeful also because he takes so much ownership over everything. He's like. You want something done right. You're going to do it yourself and he does he does. He's got the shit to back back it up with he..
"director" Discussed on Nerd On! The Podcast
"See it but it's like there's there's just different shades of it and there's a picture of it and i wait. It's not true. It's the more you well. How do i know this. It's not as many as the mantis shrimp. Is anyone anything about women when you're kidding. That's where we have heard on. Thank you <hes> <hes> but yeah so. I think it's important to talk about director specifically. It's not writers or producers or you can have those episodes too but we will have those episodes yeah i. I like in myself as director <hes> i've written myself as a writer director <hes> and to me what that means like. I can write my own scripts and i want it done in a certain way and i have a certain style that i wanna i do. I wouldn't call myself an outdoor. I haven't made that many films to create my own fee matic sense of meaning or also. There's things i want and things i wanna have in all the things i do but <hes> <hes> to be considered. Not tour is a high claim high critical acclaim from a lot of people and a lot of people tend to want to do that but it's also like risk right so like if i wanted all eat to like write the story for it and i told him no. I'm not going to have this in my film then again it could be. I'm an asshole but and not collaborative right but then it's kind of like the pristine and procedural but <hes> what i was saying with directors while we're talking about today they do at the end of they have to make a lot of decisions and they do the director you know. The word were changes from theater to tv. Two film director means such a different thing in t._v. World than dozen theater and film and at some point there is a level of decision making <hes>. There's some level of collaboration but at the end of the day it's weird because they get a lot of the credit. Versus like writers are not a highly hollywood. They wanna sleep with the writer only in california -cation but that's the only time they sleep stars. They want to see what the producers well blah <hes> <hes> but the thing i've always noticed with directors anyways is the fact that they they're kind of seen as that visionary right to like their vision is the film becomes whether it's through their words or not if it's through their own words then it's almost as if it's sort of like these have the formality of writing and it's all in their head if the if you give him a camera amarna crew they could just shoot it. You know but it's like you gotta write it down. You got to do the formal process whatever the ship yeah and so when you're when you're with a different writer the incidents have to collaborate. There's always going to be like some of compromise somewhere where you were you. Can you might that's where you might lose some of that the funny thing that i want to kind of if <hes> take note of after losing this episode is we'll look at how many press tours that the actors go onto for blockbusters and then how much they do for artisan films because most of the time the artisan films are the ones that the directors are doing the press tours versus the actors the actors will do the big blockbusters because those seats seat sellers directors seat sellers. Let's for the artisan films..
"director" Discussed on Collider Movie Talk
"Like, oh, I've never even heard of that. Well, he literally what he did was he did he did his he did his thing for a minute. And then he's like, well, okay. I understand what you people want. What the audience wants? I'm gonna give you Sicario. I'm gonna give you a rival. Now, you can see I can do the the by the numbers action movie. Yeah. It's still incredibly suspense suspenseful and innovative. Now. I'm gonna do a movie that you just don't even know what the hell you just saw in a rival. And that gives me the opportunity to do whatever I want I get blade under twenty forty nine. And then now dune those are those are entities that are so large directors would look at them. And just be like I want nothing to do with it too much. They'll hate me. No matter what I do. Yeah. He's a pretty unbelievable director. And I almost it almost almost doesn't feel fair to have him on this list with the others because it's so clear that the movies he's done in his style almost make him in the category of like Nolan adventure. But I do still feel like unless you're moving heard. You don't know the name than evil new, right? Because even the other three guys who are not, you know, the three amigos who are not on this list, there kind of guys that have also already done it. Right. They've aren't exactly interview to swear on and and gear MO are not in this anymore because they're to establish nasty before on our y you call swore on I've I done this with Coiro on. Yeah. Because aren't season Spanish S's? I don't know. We've had this conversation. I'm always so confused. You say it was such confidence makes me question. If it in fact is swore on I probably one of those things that like someone that I knew when he was become a set it, and it stuck in my head. I don't know. I'm calling wrong. I've always said Poirot on you say, it you've said it around other people. No one's ever cricket you. But yeah, I don't know. Nobody knows. I'm sure he's listening. Affonso anything? Okay. So that's who we both believe is going to win the next Oscar. Do you think it's going to be four director? Yes, I think I think we should have had best director who's gonna win next best director because we have other people in that have one other Oscar, I just I look at the rest of this list of the names, we have and I think about the other people in contention, and I just don't think most of these people will lend their name to the type of script that's going to even be nominated. He's the one that seems to be willing to be the most big budget of there's one other person on this list that I could maybe see in the same category. But number seven I could see seven doing doing the kind of America win. Yeah. That's very interesting. I like that. So what would you got next? Okay. Next question. Who of these directors is the most likely to have already peaked in their career? And when we say that it doesn't necessarily mean already peaked in the sense that they won't make good movies or even that a movie they do won't get a best picture nomination. Because like we're talking about people with a lot of talent. Yeah. But never reached the heights that they've already reached is the is the question we are asking here man that is a tough one. I. Oh, man. I don't know. Do you have one? Do you have someone who you think is is already there in your mind or no? Now, let's see the people on this list. I think the person that's probably already peaked. For me. I'm gonna go Steve McQueen. Okay. I know. I know it's a little probably controversial because he did such an incredible job with twelve years a slave. Yeah. Shame seems really good aim is good as well. But I did not like widows it sucked. It was not a fun movie for me. And like the people that did like widows I felt like they couldn't really tell me why..

"Give different and i'm just wondering why of stealing intimidating thing also very hardly keep how do you keep the consistent tone well i think there's really no other way to do it right because they need time to prep beforehand and then to shoot that assode and then to edit afterwards so essentially you couldn't have a director go continuously for thirteen or over many episodes although the right exactly that's what you have direct producer who can oversee the whole thing although they do seem to occasionally some of these shows now have somebody direct ten episodes which seems incredible what does that person do prep all ten episodes head of time what happens is now they're all written then they're all shot then they're all added in other words you're not adding in the same place but i will say that on west wing we actually ended up in the third year we brought in two other people i brought to other people who co ps to direct along with me so that those three of us directing that show because it's a pretty high you know sort of we didn't always be able to get paris who got nominated for every episode he ever did but and actually that was it's really the actors more than anything i mean for me it's the actors i think feel so comfortable with the people that they already know instead of somebody coming in and as an episode of director you have a very short window of time to get the crew and the actors to believe in you that you in fact are the captain of that particular ship and that particular stuff yeah on nypd blue which we did before this obviously you've heard of david milton david melts would write scripts.

"Look i think every i think the greatest opportunity for someone to learn how to direct is to be on television show is just an incredible gift to those who have an enormous desire to do that because it school right in front of you and you can you know you can take advantage of that and really taking advantage and those that do it they make end that being wonderful directors dp's actors what it should never be from my point of view is a perk it shouldn't be got them on the show i think i mean maybe it'd be fun to direct and then never wanted to reckon after that i think it what it does is it dilutes the craft that i believe so strongly and so i think it's something whereas you look at math matthew rhesus episodes on the american that's a real director that's a real director and i can't wait for him to finish the show so that i could hire him to direct something because he's really really good and so i think that's the most for me the most important thing i will also say as director the best actor to ever work with is the actor that just directed their first episode of television because they are the most accommodating human being on the planet but that only lasts for one or maybe two at the hey maybe one last question right here don't care about disturb you strange that tees.

"Wondering about this and i'd be interested in your perspective that these tone meetings which jolson gone so long they're like important but unbearable at same time and i finally near five i asked are producing director chris long how he actually utilizes all that stuff that comes out and i'd be interested if it's the same for you or totally different he said well i take in everything you say and then i put in the back of my head and when i'm on set if something's happening that totally contradicts it then it comes into the front of my mind so i can say oh that's kind of not what they wanted but otherwise it's sort of sitting there in the back which made sense to me can you talk just a little bit about what tone meeting is and you have seen through the script scene by scene and we talk about often even line by line just what we were thinking what our intention was what we want to get across with that well it's interesting because for me the americans is very different experience than basically what i've been doing for the last fifteen years the american is the only show that i have an executive produced in fifteen years and and working on it and it has been an absolute joy an absolute joy on many levels but so it's you know have to put on a different hat most of the shows that i've worked on as being a producer director executive producer on that show it is an incredibly collaborative process and specifically if it i mean dave and i are working together on snowfall and and in fact i didn't direct on snowfall i just came in and executive produced and worked with dave and we ran that show together and trying to figure out the best way to sort of move these very very ambitious television shows and so for me it's just the more there is a sense of collaboration between those entities right away so whether it's the director working with the writers of that episode and part of it is i think chris makes a good point do you know i have to say it's pretty deeply stored with me because at that moment all i wanna do is take ownership i mean i think my job as director is to take ownership my job is no longer too.

"This is like starting to lose people also a lot of our listeners our young upandcoming directors what what would you advise at young you know or any director to do if they are starting to feel like they're losing their their cruel little bit what what are some tactics firkh for reining in all back in getting the confidence back up as if he were being wake in the director do like from the perspective to de it he ravages the rest of the crew i mean it's hard because lowbudget because we have the capability of making films at such a low budget it means that people who might not be ready to direct the film gets direct to film in and so a lot of i worked with a lot of first time directors and a lot of my job is to leg helped them and like bringing them to get their power back but sometimes the power is not always there so it is about empowering them it is about leg bring them back and i think when director start to lose the crew you know yeah like taking a step back even like taking a half day off and just kind of like reorienting or something or like doing something blake build group morale up again because making films as hard and there's a lot of sensitive emotional people on said as there should be but like feelings are involve sinoe you just have to lake knowhow to kind of right the ship when it's going off course and it is tricky because you know it can original form from an actor that the they've been cast and then you find out it's a miscast what do you do with an actor that doesn't perform that over acts that you know that's a that's a very hard situation to begin because the script this written especially in feature films.

"So long for a director in our minds but every directing collaboration ndp collaboration is kind of unique in its own way and for me i think what i really love in a director is somebody who can get the whole team on board behind their singular vision you know when i when i am asked to do things that are uh kind of beyond my capabilities in terms of timer equipment or um sort of they want something that looks higher budget than it is whatever it is if if i feel like i'm in good hands with their vision i feel like if the crew feels like they're in good hands with their vision than everybody's working towards the same goal i think it's it's easier said than done to kind of get everybody marching in the same direction on a film set and dumb to me a good director is somebody who's got a vision doesn't have to be visual but it has to be some sort of direction that we're all moon moving towards and i really look for that and a collaboration i totally agree just completely nail those yes thing that i'm kind of stands out to me in terms of looking back in terms of the films that i shot and the experiences that i had with directors there are some really some circumstances where you working really really hard and everybody thinks that they are on the same path and then you feel all of the sudden lack of respect that just starts happening it starts happening with the crew all of a sudden there is a judgment that is present and we are not making the days and all of a sudden there's is wavering on the director on it and it affects the entire mood and when this respect for the director drops than you know you're in trouble and you know i i always look out for that lake water is happening here what's the pulse overall you know where is the expectation are we really as you said all going in on along the same path and working for the same goal and does he really have or she really have a um a vision and an over arc arching vision of what the film will be because look the fact is and when you onset things change you can have a script.
