"Serious universe. And we're discussing the disappearing act the impossible case of match three seventy by florence to chang. And as i've said you know she's written a fantastic book. Many years finding witnesses looking for data going through archives digging up information about the truth behind the disappearance of m h three seventy and. It's becoming very clear that already. There is some type of disinformation campaign. That is taking place trying to even dissuade rescue searches from looking in the location. Where it's most likely that the ama three seventy aircraft went down. But as i said earlier on why. Let's have a look at why someone would do this. What's so important about this. And some people have suggested that look. Maybe the reason why this took place is that it was something to do with you know finance now. It's not just finance the plays a role. Here there's also political reasons There's public safety issues. The finance cattle so one of the finance angles was really fascinating. And this was a story that came to to florence when she flew to make contact and this one contact was actually so convinced that he knew what had happened to match three seventy that his wife had threatened to leave him. Because the god had literally talk about being shackled. He had literally turned his house inside out into a massive whiteboard and everything was linked together with red string and he was smoking constantly being completely consumed by the like you. The softening kind of his belief was that the reason why. Ms three seventy had been covered up was purely for financial reasons because the aircraft have been struck by lightning. Then when you hear that you just go we'll so i walked the across struck by lightning. Have a faraday cage effect. No he was saying that. The aircraft to use prior to this had been a little bit more than two years. Prior to this event have been involved in an incident a small accident at an airport where it had part of its wing effected oshii it off and in doing so that repaired the aircraft but in repairing the aircraft it had then removed the faraday effect of this aircraft. Right right so the aircraft. This m h three. Seventy this triple seven boeing aircraft. It was hit by lightening as it crossed from malaysian s. base individuals airspace. This we'd kind of perfect winstons taking place when that happened when it was struck by lightning. That would explain all the things that happened. It would have either killed the captain or incapacitated the captain or fried the brains of the computer and that would give us indications as to why it flew to an extreme altitude white flew back down to a low altitude because the pilot was trying to maintain that and i would be messed up. So it's the finance angle is a disabled. The shares of boeing right. It's not boeing's fall. Be the maintenance crews fall. Knowable the conspiracy is is that boeing knows that the faraday cage effective aircraft is Destroyed when an aircraft is repaired. So that would kill the ship. Every single boeing aircraft. That are being prepared would have been pulled out of the sky massive repairs every single and not just been going on..

"Apollo needs to be able to do anything so florence points out that with a little bit of research he would have been able to to turn off often do this so the the story says that all of a sudden took a u-turn and disappeared off towards the indian ocean and what we know. Is that what it disappeared and obviously didn't lend in beijing. People started frantically looking for there were reports coming out from air traffic controllers that they hadn't seen it that it just simply disappeared days later or even i think it was up to awake leading a company called emma sat had announced that they might have some information regarding where this aircraft was because emma sat technology was on board image. Three seventy and what this was is that even though the transponder was switched off on the aircraft the aircraft continued to every hour ping satellite. That was earned by emma set. Now emma sat says that using this ping data they would be able to work at an arc of where possibly the aircraft had disappeared. Too right now. They claim that this arc had followed an octave flew directly into the indian ocean the southern indian ocean and it had obviously the story was that something had caused the pilot to become incapacitated and then the plane had obviously flown for a certain number of hours until it read a fuel and crashed into the south indian ocean. That's the story that we know and there are also versions like he committed suicide ed or he was drunk. Look of them. One's was and this is information that has been confirmed is there was some obviously with analysis of datta afterwards. They're able to say that. The aircraft traveled up to an extremely high altitude that was beyond the capabilities of a triple seven aircraft. Barn triple seven craft and then flew down extremely low and the theory wall says that he flew up. He was clearly suicidal captain. He had flown up to an altitude. That was You know extremely high where he could depressurize the aircraft and then allowed the oxygen masks dropped down but those oxygen masks the way that generate oxygen is chemical reaction so once that moss drops down i think is only twenty minutes also of oxygen so once that was expelled then people would experience hypoxia and would have died within moments. A bad way to go. It's still horrible but hypoxia isn't necessarily a bad way to go once. Everyone had been incapacitated on the flight. He then flew down to an extremely low altitude to avoid right off so that he could crush the plot the the plane and the thing is is that obviously there have been massive investigations into the pilots history. And who he is and all that we found out about this pilot is that the man seems to be a man of principles. He never expressed any kind of extremism before know that we live in a world of post terrorism and you know people crashing aircraft into buildings and other locations and these things can take place. He had never given any indication that he had that kind of intent on top of that when they recovered a flight simulator from his home. They had found that he had flown to several airbases. That were in that area but that doesn't suggest that he was trying to learn how to avoid right or fly into the southern indian ocean all very very odd when you start picking apart the narrative you start to see that there are things that simply. Don't add.

I enjoyed reading reading the book and I want to start out with this Quote that. I just read in the opening that these stories how devastating truce was seemingly within seemingly small moments and Did you have that in mind when you started writing these stories or is that a thing that just sort of when you got the oh. Yeah okay. I'll see that now didn't didn't necessarily have it in my. Although i think i recognize it from works of literature that i've read you know i'm a big fan of the work of the writer. Lee martin and lee martin does that. He focuses on ordinary people and ordinary moments. That become waited with. Meaning you know In terms of the way he constructs the story sent so Though it wasn't a goal. I was really pleased to see that. That's how she read it. And this idea of truth surfaces another author of us to lasting truce to reside in the familiar And two other author your said you can step back. And behold the world and make unexpected discoveries As your any stories riding them in different points of view your audience and First person third person But you are the author of these stories. What did you Step back behold into this work when you get through you know. I it story my story there were revelations so in each story. I had a moment when i finished it when i thought oh. Wow that's where we ended up. You know that sort of surprise that you can that can happen in the in the course of the creative process and then you know with the collection itself at bishop. Early developed a collection and had a meal photographer from boston. Traveling through the south and it was all about him in his life and for some reason Folks that were reading it. They liked him okay. They weren't super excited about it. It occurred to me that the women in the stories not him were the most interesting part of the stories and then there was a point in our culture where people were really turning their attention to the experiences of women at through that metoo movement and it occurred to me that i had a whole bundle of stories that really featured women and so i went back toned down the photographer character in some cases elevated some of the other characters and found that when i had was a cohesive collection that simply centered on the experiences of women and girls and that in itself was really a revelation. I had you know. I didn't really know that. I had that many stories. That would hang together in quite that way. But i was really delighted to find that they did and Have felt really confirmed as readers as a whole sort of a collection. That's that's cohesive and and pulled together based on those themes yourself your woman you grown up. You experienced These moments where you are not as interesting and they interfere with what what women are trying to do. Were there any stories in this collection that Maybe were more personal to you than that other. Well you know there are a couple of them that really resonate with me Like miss not being a ballerina as about of kind of lonely little girl. At who's best friend's mother is getting ready to undergo cancer treatment. And you know. I remember being a kid and i remember having a best friend and how central and passionate those relationships can be and And and that idea that if happens to your parents at sort of up engineer world And so i feel. I feel very tenderly towards that one. The other story that that really The that stays with me. And and i wrote it kind of straight as as a sad story but people read it really a satire and ad i read it to groups and they laugh at it is the story religion about the The lonely thirty year old woman. Who goes to she thinks. She's going to a day coupons class and she had step in a breastfeed irs lake meeting. And you know it's a it's a story about really not being seen in. It's a story about being desperately lonely and you know. I just remember points in my when i felt that way and didn't feel a part of a group or one badly to be a part of a group and you know that's really what drives her. Those are her motivators. She wants so badly to be accepted that she fabricates the idea that she has this child. And she pursues this goal of breastfeeding. So again i wrote it straight but people it is funny.

The History (and Erasure) of Black Brewers
"Despite the overarching image of whiteness. When it comes to beer there is a vast history of black brewing culture. Which like so many things has been largely erased from the history books and cultural consciousness. James bennett the second dove into this for a recent peace in eater. He acknowledges the huge influences of german and irish culture in america but points out. That's not the only source when it comes to beer quoting eater. The ancestors of african americans. They were fermenters. They were really good at making their own liquor and making their own beers and also making wine from fruit says the culinary historian and writer. Michael w twitty one of our african 'isms in fact was producing all of these things and one of the reasons why we did. That was because it was related to our traditional spirituality libation twitty. Ads is the heart of african spiritual worship. He recounts seeing this firsthand on a trip to takhar village in cameroon. They pull out a big ceramic vessel full of their traditional beer. He says and even though a lot of takhar our muslim this is one of the traditional religious practices that they keep alongside islam. What beer-drinking may be nonexistent on friday. Would he notes. You better believe that at social functions to honor youth. Celebrate a marriage or the deceased in the ground. Alcohol is poured out and passed among the elders and quotes alcohol and in many cases. Beer was and is important. Spiritually and culturally to many different communities in africa throughout the ages as european colonizers began enslaving people and forcing them to work on their stolen land. The knowledge and skill sets of many enslaved black people surrounding bruin were exploited quoting again. The prevailing image of enslaved black person is that of someone laboring in the fields were being ordered around the big house but american slavery built in sustained a pretty much every aspect of this american life and that included beer again the west african societies. From which so many bodies were stolen. Were no stranger to the mechanisms of fermentation. We know that. Enslaved africans and african caribbeans were brewing beer or were cultivating hops or other grains. That would have been used in the brewing process. Says theresa mccullough of the smithsonian's national museum of american history. Black brewing skill was no secret. She adds advertisements for enslaved. People who were skilled. Brewers -absolutely wanted posters that identified fugitives as skilled brewers or otherwise involved in the brewing industry. As american as apple pie. Peter hemmings enslaved at monticello was a master brewer and quote but even if their expertise was being used to produce beer many black individuals who were free at the time. Weren't drinking much of it. Part of it was because temperance. Got rolled into the abolitionist movements. Most abolitionists were anti alcohol. Seen it as a toxic influence and a tool of the oppressor now. That's not to say that all temperance advocates were abolitionists. Far from it but most abolitionist were teetotalers. But there is also a practical angle. Bennett explains black. People were wary of being taken advantage of by white people while drunk and also simply didn't have the money or time for drinking while they were figuring out more important matters like getting an education job and securing semblance of safety in a dangerous climate then in the second half of the nineteenth century beer and cider went from being a smaller mostly at home type of operation to a profitable business largely. Thanks to the influence of german immigrants in america and of course now that it was profitable. Black brewers were shut out and being that beer was now more something to be purchased at an establishment like a saloon versus consumed at home. Black people were also often refused service. Then prohibition hits and when it was repealed with many federal regulations in place breweries were fearful of being shut down so they leaned hard into patriotic. Branding the kind of whitewashed stars and stripes apple pie type of america that is definitively white as been it says. Advertising has more to do with what we buy than most of us care to admit and by his accounts that adds up with the consumer trends that we saw throughout the second half of the twentieth century as white flight brought middle and upper middle class white people to the suburbs where they could host parties at home and had a bit of bigger budget a lot of them swapped beer for cocktails and thinking that they could get them back with a beer that had as high as cocktails beer. Companies tried to sell the white suburbanites on malt liquor but the attempt flopped most likely minutes opposes. Because it's something of an acquired taste so then a pivot happened quoting again. How did malt liquor go from garden. Party aspirated two boys in the hood levels of despair. The exact y. Is a matter of law but jane. Nicole jackson beckham diversity ambassador for the brewers association has a pretty good idea. The story i've been able to get is that there was some kind of persistent market research saying that. Urban audiences make more purchasing decisions based on. Abc and that urban audiences tend to buy for volume. She says the decision was made to market malt liquor not as an upscale product but a specifically urban products and to put it in a large vessel boom the forty and quotes

Names erased: How Indigenous people are reclaiming what was lost
"You don't have to look very far to find Examples York region Ontario was named after your can the UK Regina is named after Queen Victoria Regina being the Latin for Queen and well British Columbia obviously. For Christina. Gray reclaiming those place names is vital and it's personal. The Simpson and Denny lawyer is one of two researchers behind reclaiming indigenous place names. The policy report was released in October of two thousand nineteen by the Yellow had institute at Ryerson University in Toronto. I've reached her at her home in Prince Rupert BBC. Welcome to unreserved thanks for having me. So you are a CO researcher with Daniel Ruck and you looked into naming practices and the erasure of indigenous place names. What did you find? We really wanted to do a cross section of the history of settler colonial renaming practices from indigenous place names to places that are an English or in French, or there's also note anglicised version as well and none look at what is the practice of reclaiming indigenous place names that is happening in various places are ranging from like the Northwest Territories, Quebec B. C. Saskatchewan Manitoba to give. People a different idea of what's going on across these places and territories, and so how do original place names get changed? You know from from the original indigenous words into you know the things that they become how does that happen? Basically what's happening as a result of mostly white people or settlers who were? Changing the names to suit their whims, our desires or values when places were being changed from indigenous place names, saedtler place names like we have to remember the population of Canada at that time was a lot lower than it is now yes. There were indigenous peoples on these lands and territories, but there is also a different perspective by settlers at that time as well, and so they I think they wanted the the places to reflect. What was going on in their life for different ideas that were important to them. I can think that Greek in Vancouver I was looking into the two sisters, which is now called the lions and a lot of people go heikal lions in in Vancouver, and they kind of overlook how sound and you can see them pretty much any point in Vancouver. But before they were called the lions, they recalled the two sisters and it relates to an oral history. Of The squamish nation and it's an oral history that also relates to northerners like myself because the oral history it's it's about making peace offerings between the northern and the southern people's. used to war with each other and so that has much significance to me as a simpson person who used to live in Vancouver the two sisters in Vancouver is definitely one that I've heard about Are there any other striking examples of renamed places that you found y'all like almost makes me want to cry actually there's a place that was called Lake Squat Kit. It's like near Kenmore, but the word squad specifically, Drago Tori term to refer to indigenous women and. Terrible. Stereotypes associated with it as well, and those are based off of how some settlers song about indigenous. and so you can just think about like it's a Grayson, deeply misogynistic but. People like had such a personal connection to the place name of squash it and like didn't want it to be renamed and. But like that I think has such a affect the way that you call places. And think about there are so many missing murdered indigenous woman in Canada and how you referred to that something that. So awfully in calling squad like those have affects real-life affects on people it's not just about placing. And is renaming more. Can it be more than just a symbolic gesture you know on how is renaming more than just a symbolic gesture i? Guess I think we always hope that naming practices or the revitalization of indigenous place names will go beyond just symbolic gestures who also have substantial effects as well and sue. Enrich policy really wanted to also look at like what are some of the mechanisms. In which indigenous people are. Using policy and Law to revitalize indigenous place names and so we looked up land use planning conservation co-management. Events and also modern day treaties and self government agreements in which indigenous peoples are using these different mechanisms available to on to re attribute and revitalize indigenous placing you know this work is being done by indigenous people. So think it's really important to attribute that recognition to them.
A Critique of Dallas Buyer's Club
"Let's. Let's Talk About Dallas Buyers Club. I first and foremost all the triggers. Goddamn because everything you thought you knew about this movie you were right and then there's more. There's The the TRANSPHOBIA is there from the characters. It's enacted characters but it's also just that kind of trans-phobia where it's tucked under. Oh, it's actually homophobia but that's because they don't know what to do with someone who presents in a way that is not stereotypical. To one gender or another. and. Yes. So look up triggers for this movie. There are so many that I don't even feel like sitting down and listing them but look them up before you continue to consume this podcast and before you decide to watch that movie. That said, had you either? Have you seen this movie before we went to the podcast first time? For a first time on that radio to. See what I did there. On brand very unbranded. Yeah. It was my first time too. I definitely knew it. As you said, for all the reasons that I knew, and then there were more reasons that I was glad I did until now. Oh Yeah so This movie I have to say because I tried to as much as I'm trashing it as much as I'm like Oh this all this I really wanted to like this movie I went in wanting to like it I remember talking to a friend about this movie because I refused to see it. So I was like, why are people praising jared leto wire people praising his portrayal of Now, I can't remember the name of Rayon why and I actually had to coax it out of a friend because. This was a friend that I respected their opinion on and they basically said they were like, well, you don't actually want to know you wanna be mad and it's like, no I respect your opinion i. am asking you why people care what is it about this helped me and what this friend said to me was that the portrayal of someone who is going through a having aids being HIV positive and then having AIDS, and then dying from another disease which. It, it was the thing that really drew this friend of mine into the character and into the world of this film and as much as. We are going to talk about a lot of the specifics now having watched it. I respect that opinion. Even though I did not get the same thing from this movie. At least from from Rayon and that's really mean I also did not grow up like I grew up as a child during the AIDS crisis I did not know a lot going on but at the same time. The movie in my opinion the movie itself. Didn't do a great job with ray on. But I really dug the way that they dealt with. Woodruff Matthew. mcconaughey character in the first act. Yeah To to. Put My cards on the table for we continue. To very specific misconceptions or like nervous conceptions but two very specific things that we're going to my mind when I started watching the movie. Deborah really softened a lot of it for me, which was one. The last movie that I've seen that was in relation to the AIDS crisis was the film adaptation of Rent. which was the worst movie that's life. I it's just. Sorry And the others conception is that I didn't realize that it was made in twenty thirteen I thought like watching it. It felt like it was like an early two thousands movie in house can be like well. Okay like Even. The Straits don't really get chanced stuff I. It was like a good attempts to try to like bring more color to the table metaphorically speaking. But it's a twenty thirteen. I don't know like. I mean at times article didn't come out yet. It's just it's just weirder and it's also like. That film strikes very early two thousands and I'm not like sinophile so I could be completely dead wrong on this, but it just felt. Like You know way older movie than it actually ended up being. So. And that. Up Sorry and then I guess the third conception. Sorry. The secret third one was that I actually was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt because as soon as I found out that it was like historical like a history piece because runway was a real person. As like, Oh, well then you know if they had to deal with a real life trans person like they're they're dead in the water like you know they're not going to handle that well. But no round is is a real. She was made for the movie. So cool. Great. Love that for us. So. Yeah. I wonder because Silas one of the things that you had mentioned that you had focused on when talking about the movie was a lot more of a real life historical things that were going on and about the real life of what was happening. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yes so Aside, from knowing about, you know sort of the kerfluffle about jared leto playing the part and hearing a little bit about that when the movie came out the other thing that I really had a bee in my bonnet about is the fact that Ron Woodruff was not straight. And he did talk about long clearly had some stuff but. They just. Changed him to be straight and altered his character quite a bit and watching it. It's so clear to me that they were like, how do we make this the straight male hero anti hero type that the straight people will come see the movie for? And so that to me like before, we even get to any issues of transphobia homophobia of that in the Bi phobia that really just made me now it becomes this sort of like. The straight guy in the hero of a crisis that you know certainly straight people and all people belong to this lots of. It was but it was primarily focused on the queer. Community. And sort of start off before you even have a chance to give the film the benefit of the doubt with that erasure just really for me. Through me completely out of it it was I wasn't able to come to the film really with. A kind of the I at that point.

Go on holiday somewhere and you like in the old town and they have like, oh, stone roads and old stone stonewalls like ancient, and then they might have a neon sign on usually bands the on because they don't mix the two but when you do have neon with an old stonewall.

With compete rock do along I think sometimes it's the kind of folksy codes you get trapped inside that sort of melody will I do? Those calls but I mean, that's why I kinda persuaded Vince to write on since just maybe for the past couple of our rooms, right? Because it felt really fresh and are wanted that kind of excitement of of light when you're fifteen year old or sixteen year old, you're going to buy your first final and to me it was like Japan and Eurythmics and pretenders and Those kind of. They were really original as I've always been a fan of Vinci's. So it's quite strange when you working with someone for so long because you kind of get used to their sound.

She's working in conjunction with New Orleans cop frank, and there are these power pills that seem to be cropping up everywhere and everyone's taking. Adam. What were you expecting from this film? I was given the the at line. It sounded like it was going to be amazing unanswered in order. To, begin with. It totally delivers the I know Dino Twenty minutes. It's really great because because all of the three central characters that the Roman character, the culpas by Jessica Medic Yla Jamie. Foxx. All really ambiguous. Real sense of skill. Is just. Is a real call was he blamed drugs school go? Driving, force joined the killing toll. But then you know if very quickly devolves into such a formulate. Superhero action movie format where somebody we have to find the emotional to A. Y. Is Jamie Fox hunting these people approach, and then you discover that I mean it's not too much of a spoiler site or is it July? Should I say why he is explicit? Just so you could probably get away with this. Okay so but he's looking for his daughter many like. Come on an. It's just like one action sequence offer another until wit into the big boss section of building when it. Comes to take slice and at the end of that I, just a wider. Because it was utterly predictable from minutes thirty five old. But I I would say, had me grit especially the text messages so one person will take the pill I. Know The bus moves tax pizza anything off what am I missed here? New Orleans is very much part of the story line. There are no John's cliches here which I really liked. It set somewhere where that poverty and the fallout Hurricane Katrina are really felt and I thought that was enormous sense to it. What did you think? Yes. They sort. They they sort of gesture towards that is just kept faking tax breaks schooling in will wash cynic. Alison. Now you like Comex, you'd like superheroes enjoy. My my trajectory was if you put much China on a graph next Dems it's pretty much the same but probably just a little bit higher. So I really enjoyed the start I really enjoyed the ambiguity of the the League three lead characters and I found the overall atmosphere. Quite oppressive and depressing which you in a good way because that's kind of. Is Everything a metaphor for covid. Now even film photos happened. And it reminded me. Of the the late to judge dredd film. Good one. Yes. Yes. You're in that kind of dystopia setting in the the oppressiveness of it. And they'd start going off the rails obesity a there was a bit of a it or may also the kind of classic colty eight to Sci Fi. Films like at Terminator Robocop Cope in that way just a big hit to the same time as being. clunky. Dialogue like this eight, your fight it's my city and. and then I think for me. It was enjoyable for a bit longer than the first half hour but then. The last. Half an hour was just every action movie cliche in the Book and the actually starts taking the piss O of itself blowing clint, Eastwood Lines and borrowing from burn means from from twitter basically the from everywhere an it just becomes an until the these kind of interesting. Merlin. Rowley ambiguous characters I just trading wisecracks is they re people's heads off you know it's just see. So I'm glad I won't stay, but it's it could have been a lot better Andrea. Did you enjoy the juxtaposition of this supposed immorality of taking pills when you see someone taking pills on a screen? It's a bad thing with taking pills to become a morally superior superhero. Well I. Thought I was interested in I thought. I. Thought the film ceases to interesting at the moment that forgets that that's what it's about because. Obviously, Superhero, films on now the dominant genre although it remains to be seen if they will survive cove it after the movies take a two year break this already a big question mark over whether things like black widow are really going to. Do the business that they would. If all this happened but I think at the core of it, you've got very interested idea. which is the the idea of addiction to power. The idea of drugs escape the set the document here you can be looking at this as a kind of a cocaine allegory as well. You know get tightrope get superpowers briefly for five minutes, and that was often then was, but it's also you know there's also Of It's about the idealization of power and celebrity. If you're a nobody will is a somebody but I think it's because it's a movie it has to fall into movie tropes, tools they and they asked to. Tidy resolution and I looked listen thought this is a great universe, a great set of. tropes for a decent as episode, not flex, which can explore some of these things and doesn't have to earn it self into a final confrontation with a bathroom wraps everything up and everybody hope for the future of in the final fifteen minutes because that's sort of betrays the premise the premise is this is a morally mixed well, the premise is that this drug is. Is Spreading throughout Nolan's and presumably throughout the rest of the United. States it's not going to be tidied up just by guessing to the end level and finishing the bad and it's such a shame you run into a big wool with this is a movie written on it. It's clever and quite so subtle and quite a quite eloquent an elegant parts that have been. Real. A real old one looks like a million dollars. I like the facts. Actually get yours these. So he said it looks like ten million dollars. I also thought the assessing of was a good one and the ovum laying off of hip hop and the notion of the central character, a rope and played by the brilliantly dominic fish back. Hedrick of escapist. In being a rapper well, isn't that just bliss superpower fantasy a people are indulging. It's such a rich world and yet the IT comes down say. Let Them Go. You wouldn't add all that kind of stuff I. DON'T BE WASTING RAGES BY THE WAY BECAUSE I I've been waiting for ages for some fresh movie native superheroes go because everything's not up. On the the the DC on mobile wells are going very very dry. I know this inside out. I know they're going out stuff and I'm surprised that there have been so few attempts to launch completely original movie properties banks there on the superheroes stuff the with which you know you could you could apply the capabilities of movies to it in a way that. You POPs caught with comics anymore. What did you think chuck? Why is he has a very interesting premise in this is a it's a film about Robin and there her two. DADS. Has To make Jewish between two fathers and is interesting because the dynamic is not one father figure and a goal it's not buddy movie isn't really is it's that meshed into one and it's about her journey and that's really ram. That's why the Clint Eastwood thing that references to him a lot and him as a father figure because she doesn't in the story have a dad that is absent. We don't know why. But the something to do with that, which I thought was really interesting. Extremely unusual. Yet I think what happens is it makes concessions to a young audience towards the end and becomes something that is cliche. It wants to follow Joker Batman Path and go down the darkness but I think because it's trying to appeal to a netflix younger audience all the edges get taken off it I found the rap stuff a bit. Bit. Cultural stereotype or anything. If you're black, you're going to get out together by wrapping. It's not yeah. She should be reading book or you. Is Real. That's a real dream of your kids I know, but we see a lot but people want to be rapid than I felt come on come on is the bad guy in this film is pretty awful. They they reference the real life Henrietta lacks who was a woman who didn't consent to her tissue cells being used on, yet they have been used in have helped science cure diseases, I? Mean it's not. It's quite easy to get so cheap relevance by. Out..

"With us today, we have the Amazing Justin Fella Aka five, eighty five. He's Guatemalan American artists from Nevada known for his large scale sculptures that plays with American pop culture and the lat next experienced. He's the host of a couple of podcasts including the art people podcast and one of my favorite podcasts. Latinos who lunch welcomed Fathi. Welcome. Still trying to figure out technology. Technical difficulties. We're like we're right there. Thank you. Thank you for having me. I am in Las Vegas Nevada right now since. Yes in city where people don't believe that wearing masks is a big so. Crystal. Very similarly. You know we we started working at Greenpeace right around the same time and we really didn't see a lot of lat next representation in the environmental movement in these big green organizations and so we thought hey, like maybe we can just do something like that and on your show you talk about sort of the intersection between being Queer Latinas and sort of like this idea of Spangler. Inside this Anglo world out what do you think is the importance of intersection analogy was important to talk about. Oh my gosh. That's one of the. That's one of the big big missions of Lebanon's lunches that. If it's not intersectional it it's really not for for anyone really like if it's not intersect, the revolution is intersectional whom we will never be free basically you know. So from the very beginning, we've been checking ourselves on our privilege as gender males on the show, and because we recognize the all the you know the misogyny within own you know belief systems just based on how we were raised in America and I'm saying America like North South and Central America and so And then something that happened maybe like a year or two intellectuals who lunch was the recognition of the erasure of Central American culture, and also after let me move out. So we actively before people are using the term anti-racists or. Really. Intersection analogy I think I heard that a lot after the the white woman's March that happened a few years ago So but they got fizzy hatsaw haven't seen many at the black lives haven't seen many at the black lives matter protests but so wh-. Anyway, We really we really started paying attention to like oh my gosh we're really like Mexico centric on our show we need to actively be anti-black and talk about colors and talk about the erasure of offer. Let the needle on our show and we recognize that it was our own. You know that was our one of our personal goal was to really openly talk about that and have sometimes uncomfortable conversation. Let I love what you said. We can't have revolution if it's not intersectional because the sort of Traumas and the histories and experiences are compounded with each identity that include you both you know in a way that's like. Boosts Society and helps you in society also not. About yeah. especially with climate change because at the end of the day, we're all going to be affected by climate change but to what degree and how soon it really depends on where you are how much you have, how much you given, how much you're supported in society. It's funny because like recycling and incur the environment it seen this very same in or you know white people saying but it's like no dinos have been trying to take care of the environment for a very long time. We just don't talk about it in the same way you know what I mean. So I mean I also like to pretend that I'm Vegan. Just people mad because you know that's US relegated to just white people. You know I'm so like Oh. Yeah. I. Don't I don't wanna eat cows anymore because it's bad for the environment and that's like the real thing that I'm doing now that we're talking about claim it and how much Linex do people care about it maybe not in the same context that you know white people are recycling or being around this like we have our willows. Teaching on like here's the. Deal or like rub this like urban you're like sore foot and you'll wake up of. The best. Or some other iteration of that Linex people care about the environment and we quote like or reference this study that happened recently at Yale that seventy percent of people in the United States, Horley care about the environment, and so how do you see that or not see that reflected in our culture and how do you see annex values reflected in the conversation around the environment? yeah, I mean there's there's very different schools of thinking within my own family for example, but like my will lead, you know isolated people do it saying this online to we've been saving plastic bags and containers from jump? Right. That's just something that we do in our like is that sour cream in the fridge? That's probably. Some leftover beans or something. You never know you never know I'm so in little ways like that we're very resourceful as Latinos because we have to be, but also it's just part of our culture even in Latin? America. But I am example that pops up to my pops up to my head is recently visited what the my life for the first time as an adult and went back to where my mom is from this little little village called. We let the in Garland which is right in the center of a psychopath in Guatemala and so. HALF OF MY A. Family are farmers and then half of them are. are raise cattle So it's like. That's when I realized like Yo my family is responsible for like the deforestation of Quantum Allah because I'm seeing all this open land my GRANDPA has. but they don't see that way. They're like, no cows our money we're going to raise cows we're GONNA make you know we're gonna them or dairy cow. So then we'll be sold for me and so there's this acres and acres of land that my family owns that is is just it's just grass now when it used to be rich rainforest
Black Women Deserve More Credit in Civil Rights Movements
"Black women have been the pioneers of so many movements that have changed the world, the Eurasia of black women from the story of these movements is something. We've seen many times throughout American history starting all the way back with the women's suffrage movement. African American women in particular played a significant in sometimes overlooked role at a suffrage movement. There were African American women fighting for suffrage from the beginning you. Know sojourner truth and the time of the civil war I to be Wells Barnett and Mary Church. Terrell, they built a movement that would grow to half a million but they would never find exceptions among mainstream. Selfridge's at that time. Suffrage leaders were actively wooing southern white members to appease the southerners. White suffragettes found it expedient to abandon their black sisters they minimize the presence of black woman in that struggle. Stan seize control of suffrage history, and this multi volume book still dominates the histories and essentially wrote black women out of that. That's right. Black suffragettes were literally written out of the history books by white women in the movements and just look at their faces. It's like they had already seen the future and they were like I'M NOT GONNA get credit for any of this Emma because the truth is certain white feminist heroes worst super-problematic. People, remember them like they were early versions of wonder woman when in reality they were more like the mom from get out. Now, you may not be surprised that these nineteen twenties, Karen's where he gets to accept black women's work but give them credits. But what may surprise you is that black men in the civil rights movement also happy to do a similar thing most women who worked in the movement who were the exit backbone of the civil rights movement were not really known media attention would always be drawn to the men of the movement as they are doing work that Martin, Luther, King's and others but would not necessarily go to women like Ella Baker who was a longtime activist. Who helped to nurture and birth the student movement Diane Nash With the Lead Strategist behind the citizens in Nashville and the freedom writers he played a critical role in organizing the Selma marches. Dorothy height was the Godmother of the civil rights movement. But because she was a woman, she was often off to the side behind the podium behind the scenes she was guiding force at the table when the big six planned the historic march on Washington in nineteen sixty three, the lone woman at a table full of med, yet despite all her efforts height could not convince them that a woman should be allowed to speak at the podium the day of the march come on man this is so messed up. Black Women with the lifeblood of the civil rights movement, and still they got caught blocked by the dudes I. Mean, the Reverend's got half a dozen microphones right there you come break. One of those offer, my girl Dorothy she was a critical part of the group if the vendors were fighting Santa's but they made eye on Manchester from the stands and this just shows you that black women don't just have to deal with racism from the world but oftentimes, they have to deal with the sexism within their own communities and the world at large.

Rebecca Solnit: Recollections of My Nonexistence
"Of my nonexistence. It's a profound book. It moved me deeply and let me say furthermore that this is the first time we're doing a show under these corona virus situations. I'm in my home. Rebecca's in her home and we're going to talk to one another without being able to see one another a real I for bookworm. Hi Rebecca Hello Michael. What do you mean by my nonexistence? I had the title before I wrote the Book and the book in some ways a reflection on it. It's most of all about all the forms of violence against women. The literal violence that leaves some women. Did some woman silent. Some woman pushed out of full participation in different social arenas but I also wrote about other social groups game in native people etc who face other kinds of erasure and I also wrote about reading as a positive form of non existence where you withdraw from your own life and your own physical being to enter another world and kind of float disembodied in somebody else's imaginings in somebody else's language. Wow let me say that as I was reading the book although I regard myself as I hope sensitive gay man I was made aware of how frightening it is used say at a certain point partially ironically that in your childhood your hobby was not getting raped. To what extent is that true. I-in it's completely true and I was really writing about my adolescence and early adulthood. We've had a really valuable and significant conversation. Last several years thanks to black lives matter and the response to the killing of Trayvon Martin about black parents giving talk to their sons about the dangers. They faced because of their race and gender. Most girls get different forms of the talk. Telling them often in roundabout evasive ways that they can't wear this. They can't do that. They can't aspire to this. They can't move freely. They can't go out at this hour. They shouldn't go to the party. They shouldn't have a drink and that it's entirely on them to prevent men from harming them and that society has no interest in taking responsibility for that but Democrat violence against women. So as young woman I had to constantly think about safety and strategy as I move through the world and every situation walking out in the world public transit meetings classes social situations parties Cetera and it was constant and it took a toll. I remember when I was first in college. This is around. Nineteen seventy the first feminist movements. Were starting in it in phone stickers. That said this exploits women but it wasn't yet clear that we were in a culture that exploits women altogether and that when I started to join gay men's liberation groups. We discovered how much we had grown up being teased being heard being disregarded in the language of the Normative Patriarchal Heterosexual Culture held one. Live in such a culture. You know I think if you add up those who are not male those who are not white. Those are not straight those who are not conventionally able bodied et CETERA. You end up with the majority of facing these forms of non existence. I think that you know it is a burden that people shouldn't have to carry That a lot of kinds of people carry these burdens and I wrote this book partly to try and home in on some of the nuances and complexities around gender. That I didn't feel we're talking about enough but I also wrote this book very much as a first person account of my formative years in San Francisco and gay men were a joy and support and inspiration in those years You know I lived about a neighborhood away. You know a fifteen minute walk from the Castro to see these men who had said we're going to refuse our assignment. We're going to refuse our role because we've decided it's worth paying the price rather than the price of avoiding who. We are and conforming. But I also WanNa talk about another form of non existence that really had an impact. And I think has an impact on young queer people even now on people of color the non-existence of being given reading material stories histories in which people like you don't matter don't exist aren't the protagonists. I grew up reading. Very male centered white centred literary Canon and I should say Christian centered and I feel like there was a non existence that to imagine myself as the protagonist of the great stories. I had to D- imagine myself as a woman and it always felt like I was wavering. Between who I was in my bodily identity and who I was if I wanted to be like Odysseus Sir Lord Jim more so many of the adventurous people in the books that I love when I was growing up the used to as a regular thing on once book reports ask. Who Do you identify with in this book? And since there were no queer characters and no Jewish characters except extremely negative. One says in the case of the sun also rises. I mean hemingway was particular corporate for giving us no one that we could know who would be like us. We would want to grow up into and my parents intern. They were the children of immigrants or immigrants themselves and they were given Ivanhoe to read when they got to school and suddenly they were saying words like pretty young maiden where did that come from. They weren't learning American English in their English classes. That will earning Sir Walter Scott so when I was reading your book. Rebecca this idea of non existence and the ways in which it's pressed upon us move me so deeply that I'll tell you the truth I was breaking into tears every ten or fifteen pages. Wow thank you I will say if I'm not mistaken. Ivanhoe has a beautiful Jewish named Rebecca in it but it is a very anachronistic archaic book. Rebecca Soni is an explorer of the American West and when she became involved with her younger brother in anti-nuclear demonstrations. She was there at the test sites in Nevada. Exploring what it was lied to beyond Shoshoni lands. Yes yes and actually that was such a formative place for me. I like to say the Nevada test site taught me to write because the place was so extraordinarily it demanded. I learned to integrate the different modes. In which is writing journalism criticism and kind of lyrical personal essays but also was a place in which the protagonists were Western. Schone elders Mormon down winters atomic survivors from Japan Lesbian Pagans and anarchists and just really remarkable coming together of a lot of people who already weren't part of the central narrative to exert real power make real alliances about the future of the world against the dominant narrative being told by Cold War America and then nuclear physicists and politicians who were mostly white men and it was an extraordinary movement with many
Hatshepsut: 'The First Great Woman of History'
"Jenny Kaplan. And this is encyclopedia Lamonica. Today's leader was one of the few female fan and each in Egypt and one of its most successful pharaohs overall ruling for over twenty years. She led Egypt through a period of prosperity completed ambitious building projects and increased trade with surrounding lands. She sometimes called the first great woman of history.

King Tut most of the first and his primary wife very little known about her early childhood around the age of twelve hotshot so it was married to her half brother. Tet moves to the second who was a younger son of Hatshepsut's father and his secondary wife cut most of the second had three older brothers authors. So he wasn't originally next in line for the throne but each of his older brothers died before coming of age as the eldest living son of most of the first. I tut most of the second ascent to the throne around fourteen ninety two ABC hardships. It became his primary wife and Queen. She gave birth to a daughter but never had a son to inherit the throne.

Most of the third was the eldest son of a lower harem queen and was only an infant when he took power as US such hardships. It acted as regent for the baby. This was fairly common arrangement at the time. But by most of the third seventh year in Power Hatshepsut sit herself had been crowned King and was given the full titles and Regalia of Traditional Pharaoh. Technically she co ruled with the young cut most of the third but there was no question about who the primary rule really was. It's unclear exactly how hot chips it gained that level of power and how she convinced. The Egyptian elite beat to accept a female fair. It's generally thought that she spent years promoting loyal officials into major positions of power and they in turn supported her bid for the throne during its reign. Egypt enjoyed appearing to peace with its neighbors. She went on a short successful military campaign in Nubia. Yeah when she first came to power after that. Her government's foreign policy was almost entirely focused on trade scenes on the walls of shops at. Stay here Bihari. Temple show trade expeditions and imports of valuables like gold. Animal Furs Ebony. And spices as part of their duties. Egyptian Pharaohs rose were expected to take on major building projects and restore the buildings of former pharaohs that had gone into disrepair in this regard had chips. It didn't buck the norm.

Modern scholars originally thought that this must have been an act of revenge. But it's now believe that it probably had more to do with cleaning up the line of succession. It's worth noting that other pharaohs did similar things to their predecessors including scrubbing building inscriptions and claiming the buildings as their own because of this campaign of erasure. Racer hardships it became essentially unknown to history until eighteen.

"erasure" Discussed on Books & Rhymes: The Podcast
"The one that shack in my head. That's one or you can look at the lyrics deeply and it's really about the person who's the object of my affection and that person is so complete the way they are. They don't need to change their behavior. Fine just as they are and as they are is all that. I need to know the wonderful thing which is amazing. How you you'll some choices ties. So wonderfully with the with just the structure of lives of great men here. Is that what he uses. First album is titled whitney houston. Yes and the second of mistitled whitney with me. So she has dropped this. You know the the surname in the second one. She's just i mean who. I am any so wonderful that that is the album that you choose where you've janis that that first decade of her as an artist There were a lot of in her music. That spoke to people outside of a vocal progress. I mean i think when people think of with knee houston they always think about how great she was as interpreting songs. You know but some of the songs that were a biggest hits songs edmund sung by other people. Yes louis love you thirty houghton. That was a dollar budget song for many years ago on. Her interpretation of it made people think differently. The greatest love of all was by george benson. Her interpretation of admit people think differently. And i think there are several songs that she was able to get people to feel them Right and so when people often think about her they think of her talent in terms of a powerful vocals. But i often think of what she made me feel by paying attention to the lyrics. She was not a songwriter but she elevated the work of some bright s to make us think and not. Just feel the melody but think about how you behave or do you wanna do Saving all my love for us. One of a favorite songs of all time practically because it spoke to me in in a in a in a very visceral way. Because i could see myself with lamido with other people that i mentioned in the book in my life who i tried to give everything and i was willing to wait until they finished with their lives. That's true it's a common give me the crumbs and i would be saving my best sells for them and these were things that she interpreted that more than just shaking your ass sway incident. Beat you made you really think as to where are you going with this shit. You know Yeah so how. How irv primarily in the first decade Is quite meaningful to me because i related to a lot of The lyrics to the things that she song and a lot of it were quite powerful and uplifting but this is such recognition of you. Know if you're in this space you need to pick yourself up and get out so instead of saying. Maybe just whitney or the whitney houston album. I would say may be the greatest hits volume one because income passes all of those years and she puts the songs in there that i just On remakes just just like that was one of her songs. That was used in the olympic. You know some of her interpretation of of Strong lyrics need. You feel like you know you could you. Could you could do better. You can have your moment you could shine without the whole world Recognizing it and so i. I loved a lot of her work. Everything i was quite lucky in that. I was living in america at a time when she performed a lot and she was at her best. Now we all know that. What's the end of her career. There are health issues and challenges. But i think that i Up until the part where an immediate aftermath of the buddy god soundtrack she was a consistent live performer and you could see the depth of interpretation of lyrics of songs that she had recorded but also songs that other people had recorded and it was a real joy for me to be able to see her four or five times in concert Before the decline of homes. I like listeners. I've just had a wonderful journey through the music. Yes thank you so much for. Having me on the podcast. It's been wonderful being here The one last thing that. I want to ask everybody to do is just encourage people in your life street. I think that for us as africans people who love africa. It's very important that we stop reading for passing exams only off our own religious journey. We need to invest in writers who are contemporary who telling our own stories Because there's a lot of. I have had the luxury of living in america and america's powerful because of its ability to put out different narratives out there so you don't know only one thing about america. You know a lot about america. And this is what i wish for us. Jerry's and africans in general that we invest in people tried to tell our own stories. So yes.

Stanley, STAN Lee And Writer discussed on John Batchelor
"Like spider man, and the hulk Thor also the Black Panther ever, nurses covers comics for Gizmodo. He's a comic book writer himself as it happens. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. I'm going to quote, your tweet this morning back to yourself with a slight paraphrase to make it a FCC compliant. You said this is actually messing me up a lot more than I expected Stanley's writing. And speaking voice has been in my head almost my entire life. That's kind of a thing. He's been out there for a very was out there for a very long time being really influential. Yeah. So much of what we think about when we think about superheroes. And even pop culture comes from Stanley. Here's the thing about about the superheroes. That Stanley came up with for my money that sort of makes him stand out the superheroes. That that came from the minus Stanley and others, we should say, and I'll get to that in a minute. Were the oddballs in the misfits. And yet he made it, okay? To be that. And then we should say marvel and Disney made it okay to make gazillions of dollars off that. Yeah. I think the thing we have to remember when we think about STAN Lee is, you know, he himself was like an outlier right in terms of doing what he did in the nineteen forties and nineteen fifties. He worked at a magazine company, which made comics when he really wants to be like a screenwriter novelist like he had different ambitions for himself. So it's not a stretch. I think to say that Stanley was taking his own sense of being a misfit. And you know, he was a Jewish man in America. Right after World War Two you. I think those are some of the things that probably forms. The idea that went into characters like Spiderman. Fantastic four the X men. Here's a trickier question. Did he have more influence on the comic book industry or later in life and through his derived work in comic books, a bigger influence on the movie industry? So that's an interesting question. I feel like you have to think about when marvel universe that we know started in nineteen sixty one the company was near death DC was dominant with a formula that was viewed as a lot more stayed in save. But when when standing this cO contributors come up with the marina verse nineteen sixty one of those characters if basically forces DC to step up their game and rethink about hiding their cassettes Wiesner characters. So then it became this competition that reinvigorated the whole superheroes genre. And I think then you see that trickling out as annotations become more and more common in TV and movies and stuff. So I think the comic Centric portion of his career is far more because without it happened. So here's. The impolitic question the kind of has to be asked and you refer to this a little bit in your job at that. You wrote of him today. Did he maybe get a disproportionate amount of the credits since he was the guy out there hustling, and and making it work. I mean other people helped him come up with all these guys. Yeah. Stanley was a pitch man. Right. He was the public face of the company for decades. And I think by sheer virtue of that there was an instance of kind of unintended erasure of his other co creators, but I think. The only today with remember that STAN was there and so much of what marvel became was a result of his direct involvement like his his personality, and his energy is all inside of that work ever. Narcisse senior staff rhetoric is motor writes on comic books and has written comic books as well. Evan. Thanks a lot. I appreciate your time. Thanks for having me. Right.
Tom Cruise, Steve Stone and WGN discussed on Steve Cochran
"At, ten on, WGN TV Moron entertainment as I recall this It's, not it doesn't feel the same Steve, out here for more on entertainment so we'll just introduce Dina's the. Moron. Quotient a little bit That's. Right to make up for, ever Steve right right Troy come on, Choi in a little bit I can do I can be Moron there's nothing. There's nothing new. But for this Let's talk mission impossible. Fall out the film the reviews they're coming in this is we're talking to Nick to Gilio yesterday about this is the only vehicle for Tom Cruise that. Makes money the the rest of Tom cruises career. At this point they're bomb, after bomb, after bomb they might be good. Movies but. They're they don't, do well too Jack Reacher and others have done, okay but nothing even remotely close, to now these. Six mission impossible, films that he that he's. Done that started back in. The year two thousand which is amazing that he's been doing this character and this franchise for nearly twenty years and there are no signs of slowing down. With this normally you get two or three films. In the franchise and it, begins to, fall apart no signs whatsoever This this film was about as strong and as exciting as. Any of them that have come along the premise. Is almost secondary to, everything that surrounds the premise which is some plutonium goes missing in the hands of, some bad guys they want to set. Off nuclear bombs around. The world to disrupt the world order and it's up to the impossible mission force should, they decide to accept the mission to find the plutonium and stop these, nuclear nuclear explosions that are going. To take place but this is done with with so much excitement it's like a Corey a daredevil choreography with this of one exciting stunt an action scene after the next he's not jumping out. Of a plane he's doing helicopter aerobics we talked about. The scene where he famously shattered his ankle real life, injury with this and he's the, the scene when When you all go to see the movie this weekend there's a scene, which he's running from rooftop-to-rooftop to rooftop to rooftop and jumping from. Rooftop to rooftop and there's. A point at which he instead of jumping from rooftop to rooftop he goes rooftop smashing into the side of the building and. Trailer yeah you look at it and go wow that's amazing, that stunt man really did a great job there is not a stunt. Man that was Tom Cruise and that was not planned he there was a misstep there in that that's the scene where he. Shatters ankle we talked about it yesterday they keeps going he's he's Scoglio keeps going until he told me that he knew that. They could only do this one time he knew. That something was very, wrong that he had broken something but still lifts himself up on the building as, you see in the movie and keeps. Running past the camera. And that's where he collapsed after he was out of the shot but that's that's Tom, Cruise it's one thing after another Let's bring in China why why do. You think that he didn't know that there's a there's a lot, volved with it but why does he want to do all of these elaborate scenes himself and risk himself to, the injuries he's a he's an action junkie I mean that's that's. What I think it is. He finds a tremendously exciting There are some, precautions that they take with harnesses and things I'm sure while he's doing all this building jumping you know. That there, are precautions so he. Doesn't seriously, hurt himself with any of this but. He just absolutely loves it I mean some people would say you know how how can hockey players get out on. The. Ice, and, go through the, physical abuse that they do but. I mean isn't that isn't that part of the adrenaline rush for asking I guess whether it's hockey or anything else where there's, a certain, amount of physical danger involved. Good hey dean during the break. Trae brought up a great question we couldn't think of another star, like Tom Cruise that you'll go see in the theater even. If you're not into the movie you know Tom, Cruise is a draw Justin brought up the rock rock can you give another star that, has power like that these days No That's a legitimate, questioning whether he's reading that movie star, gone where it's gonna, go, see Tom, Cruise Gina's movie. Star he not only is he the evil. Knievel of movies but he's he's a, really, good actor I'm in the scenes that don't, involve stunts, he is so, good at so motion. Empathetic in charismatic in. The roles that he does and this, this particular character, Ethan, hunt in particular There, there's just a draw to him and I think that you know part of the enjoyment of this movie is knowing that he's doing almost all the stunts that you. See there's, a helicopter scene toward the end of the movie it's. Him maneuvering. This helicopter and jumping out of airplanes in fact tell me about jumping out of airplanes last. Night on. The late late show. With James corden instead of a cruise just coming to, talk to him at the desk Tom Cruise may James corden jump out of an airplane with.
