Optimizing your reputation online with Sean Smith
"Welcome to another episode of the elevate. Podcast where we into some of the most interesting minds in business in real estate for the very best cheap since strategies it implemented. Elevate your business. I'm smith mclean. Editor relate agent and host of today's show on today's show joined by podium regional sales directors. Sean smith with a background in real estate that includes property management support and also some time we thrill state dot com delay. You sean carter. Focus involves helping agencies obtain and manage their online reviews which is very important. So welcome to the show sean. Thank you samantha. Grades of asia. That was a male phil. Welcome to the show on like this is a bit of alliteration going on there. So let's dive straight in an online reviews and you always hear about the importance of reviews. Why do they medicine much match. Agents online reputation depends when you're talking about online reviews of it is for an agency if they'd just using reviews as a way to get some nice testimonials that they wanna put on their website. That's great doesn't drive new business. So when i think of reviews and the reason i've come over into this space and i'm so passionate about reviews. Specifically in the real estate sector reviews me business. Landlords vandals looking at online reviews. They're only looking for one reason and that's to safer. The next agency is that they appoint to manage their property all sell the property much. That loss check isn't it. Because you do research and you jumping in jump out you do all sorts of other things as it can chamber and then finally before you make that selection you go and look at the reviews right absolutely absolutely any. It could be the difference between someone being photo to a great agent. That person still check those reviews and they might get turned off even if it's the best friends recommendation. Yeah it's an interesting topic but reviews on just about reputation. They're all about search engine optimization as well so can you talk us through how that works exactly questions. I'd encourage everyone listening to this when you get to a desktop buta or a about such real estate agency and then put in the suburb of your agency. If you're not just looking there at agencies that have a couple of reviews you'll get the most recommended agencies in that area and that's tied down to run about eight or nine out of ten. Seo factors with google a purely tied to those reviews whether they've recent reviews whether you consistently and frequently get those reviews and also you start writing in your total number as well but then the baffle the nettle. Yeah that's interesting. So google is actually ranking people based on race of reviews and based on the number of reviews and i also take it. The velocity of reviews like committee reviews of coming over sitting period of time. Absolutely in that in google's is that comes down to they want to make sure that this isn't just a flash in the pan for an office so if an office is ten reviews an and then they go. You know what this is really important. Add an extra hundred reviews next week. We're gonna ask all about science. That might look good in your number of reviews. No star writing but google's not going to look super favorably on that because it's not part of your process if you're looking at reviews as a new business strategy for instance make pot of every process make it part of the selling journey make it part of the. The tenant janis well finding appropriate after. They signed a lease in that secured the premise austin for review. It will just happen day down. Yeah that's interesting. And i want to get to asking for reviews because partying does that exceptionally well. We just talked a lot about google but there are a whole lot of review platforms agents right my agent real estate facebook etc in european. Where should agents focus. Think it depends a lot on what they're trying to which eighth with each of these different viewpoint foams. I'm very biased. Because google has actually backed podium. Not necessarily the best choice to get involved in which platform would always encourage people to find out where the custom is a finding them from. I know that some of those review sites. They're focused on buys intense. We know whether going though if they looking for property reviews probably on really influence. Mfa looking to buy property. Google is the first point. Of course someone doing the research on like i say land rivendell doing the research on the agency that they going to enlist. They'll be agent the agency and the brand. That's what google is absolutely the number one place because it's tied into your phone. It's tied into a web browser you see it straightaway and you can see her as the most recommended agency
"janis" Discussed on Dateable Podcast
"Where we actually throw those rules on top. I've had lots of conversations with people about initiating dates or following up. And i love what julie said which is how are you naturally. I personally am a social connector. I call people. I organize things that just made nature and so in that frenzied panicked head. Space anxiety head space. I was throwing dating rule on top of ever call a man as i was indeed when i learned that when it gets reinforced over and over reagan and then i noticed it was those racing thoughts where i didn't have the skill set in those days to check the facts so i would go into well. He's not gonna want me. I'm not going to be appealing. I'm going to be needy in. There's still to this day. Those narratives still pop up in my head. But i recognize now that they are in my head. The racing thoughts. They're anxious thoughts end when we're actually behaving with authenticity. Our nervous system feels super calm. And i think that we're often confounded about which is which because we're told that chemistry feels like sparks. It feels exciting. It's nerves so i was really confused between those because unlike the frenetic sentence means that i really like him in the exciting's supposed to be but i wasn't actually able to ground into what my body actually would feel like if it was in a restful connected com state where i could actually calmly without this weird narrative in my head really really like to talk to this person. I'm gonna call him or i'm going to text him so i think it's that's why have a body practice do yin yoga re day to practice the feeling of being calm connected to myself and i didn't do that for eating purposes but it has laid a foundation in my awareness about what com connected. Me feels like it. When i jumped outside of that in the dating context. I'm doing something. That's not commerce connected. Which means i'm doing it. From that place of micro trauma right so yeah. I feel like we've had these lot of conversations lately like how you know when it's your own stuff versus like the external person putting it on essentially and i hate like blaming.

"This person ghosted or wasn't a fan. Whatever and i think it stems back to this route that like being single. There's something wrong with you. Then when you're actively trying to fix it up saying that in the air quotes by data in that. It doesn't work. You start to internalize it that there is like legit something wrong with and let's just pause on that. I i wanna just like expand on this for for anybody listening because it's really easy to listen to this and think of other people experiencing dating trauma but when you think about it for yourself. I'm no psychology expert. But i do know. Victims of trauma have a delayed reaction. Sometimes it takes years for them to feel that trauma in their body. And psychologically i think the same goes for a dating trauma is it takes. That delayed reaction is affecting how you're dating today. So whatever you're putting out there right now what you're experiencing could be something that you experienced five years ago ten years ago right so i think we need to think of ways to move forward from the previous dating rama. In order to address. What is happening your love life today. So what are some ways. We can start healing that past trauma. Well one of the things. I did was actually stopped talking to friends to try to figure out what had gone wrong and they went to the men themselves. Okay get it from the source. Yes i mean. That's the only person that knows right. Your friends don't know my friends don't know and we would come up with these amazing amazing theories of all kinds and assess in then eventually. That's how i would get closure. But i started asking that peace and going to the men and saying hey can i just ask you a couple of questions and what i found out was actually astonishing to me. None of it had anything to do with me. And what i heard instead what. We're things like. I got back together with ex girlfriend. I'm not fully divorced without process. I wanted to sleep with on the first date in. You.
Germanys digital identity landscape with Verimis Roland Adrian
"Hi roland oscar. Nice looking with you on and really happy to hear what is going on in germany in terms of identity in or ever seen related to that and happy to know more about very me very baheren hearing berry meal ready for the last year. San diego need to hear more details. What are the are building offering today so. Please tell us your journey how. You became the managing director very me. Yeah thanks you can. The many thanks for the invitation. Let's here and talk to you a little bit about the markets in germany. So yeah what was my journey becoming managing director of very me. Actually my journey professional. Johnny started twenty five years ago. When i started my career in consulting. Then some stations cashed out which is a department store group. And then i founded multi-platinum loyalty scheme together with start at telecom and from there. I moved to payback. Which actually is janis leading multi partner loyalty scheme. They are quite some markets worldwide than india mexico italy. Us and from all the travel. I got introduced to lose tons of course and became the ceo of lufthansa mice and more during that time. Actually i realized that the future is more. And more about seamless customer experience. Because if you look at lofton's in many cases the real loyalty benefits that you can get there. They actually translate into a real seamless customer. Experience that you get you look at all the tracks for security and immigration priority boarding presort seating in the plane actually the customers tend to reward benefits in their experience much more then any loyalty currency and so at the moment where then lufthansa invested into very me idea for me. It was very clear that this would be an exciting next step for me personally. So i decided to switch over to meet to be the ceo of me and push forward at digital identity to provide seamless customer experience for the users and i can induce that lufthansa is one of the funders organization behind very me. But let's more place for the ones who are not familiar with very still bear me does. In fact lufthansa there's actually one of the investors and we have altogether thirty very large companies in germany that invested into the very idea and a lot smaller companies are really known brand. Names such as liens deutsche. Bahn dot eubanks lufthansa dodger taylor com dime la some song fox button so all very large companies that invested into very me to establish of wallet of digital identities so that was the driving force and i think when we will talk about the market later on we will see that it was a very good moment to invest into such platform because the market urgently requires the platform and there's pretty much empty space currently in germany. And what we provide as bury me as this one click digital experience for very fight identification was in a pop. Misuse cases and at the core of it on is an identity platform. Of course that matches all the regulatory requirements for our anti money laundering or either substantial. And this comes along with the solution for strong customer syndication because the critical part of such a platform is not the identification of customer itself. Actually the critical part is the reuse. And that means the access to the digital identity

Australian coal exports reportedly banned by China
"Chinese state. Media is reporting today. That china has made official severe restrictions on the import of coal leaving hundreds of millions of tons of the stuff parked haplessly off the chinese coast in ships. That won't be talking. It is a severe and clearly symbolic expression of china's accelerating annoyance with australia. The two countries had long been profitably bound by china's fullness of australia's mineral resources the current episode of monocle. Twenty fours the foreign desk takes a broader look at the china. Australia spat in it. I speak to former australian. Prime minister and former australian diplomat to china kevin rudd. I began by asking him. Just how bad things are got most of us who have been but analysts said -ticipant in its relationship of the last several decades would site that in the near fifty year period since diplomatic relations were established in nineteen seventy two. This is the worst stage that the relationship is raised beds against all measures political diplomatic economic security human rights united. It's all gone right down. The too many contributing factors to this but indirect to question. It's a fifty year low. I think the way to analyze what's unfolding in. The of china relationship is to see it in terms of the normal outworkings all a great cow on the rise in this case but abnormally in this case the rise of a pow which is a one party state with an authoritarian political system. Fewing somewhat mckendall is taken on ole sees as well as seeking to adjust boundaries with its nighters maritime and land by his boundaries that is part of the reality but it does impact not just a straight but other american allies like japan the republic of korea in south southeast asia those in central asia even the russian federation bubble miata hand. What you've had is. An australian government said somewhat incapable differentiating between what i would describe as the operational characteristics of effective china's strategy and confusing that deliberately or otherwise on a continuing basis with a declaratory strategy which ends up being driven by domestic political imperatives. So it is. In fact the call these factors. In imprecise kerr relation with each other which actually produces the net result and frankly. It's an ungodly miss. The time for circuit breaker has well and truly come to prison. The mood for such circuit breaker has not yet arrived. But if you are not just necessarily this australian government but an australian government is there no grounds at all for concern about sinister designs. China may have on australia at this point. In recent months and years we've seen detention of australian journalists in china. There's been varies. Influence peddling scandals strode in michael burgess the director general of aco claims. There's more espionage. Dwayne australia right now than there was during the cold war. The key point here is what we conclude domestically in australia as constituting real threats to try national security by giving janis actions whether it's in state basis cyber cyber-attacks influence operations against his train. Politicians will the media or other such activities in dealing effectively. With each of those challenges it is not necessarily mandated that she didn't take out a mega fan every second day and proclaimed that from the rooftops is the constant differential i seek to explain between an operational strategy as opposed to a declaratory strategy. My advice to premise morrison repeatedly has been do more. Silas do more is in fact. A series of concrete measures enhancing on national security pows enhancing now intelligence assets enhancing fundamental economic cow enhancing out calculation growth in strengthening our alliances and relationships with countries. Around the world of just the united states but in southeast asia and beyond as well and that is gonna separate matter from proclaiming. I said every second tuesday morning. The original There's about two landing bondi beach by the chinese amphibious force. It's quite a different matter. Intelligent mature national strategy. Understand the difference between the two and the owners say practical example. The difference between the two look for example japan on a daily basis weekly bi assists in the last several years handled its relationship with china relatively stable notwithstanding the fact that japan is a annella. United states. Big is a liberal. Democracy see has tonners single loudest economic D has american military bases on its soil and e as a rolling territorial dispute with china chinese china sea of caucus data yet. Despite that the japan china economic relationship prestige relatively unmolested. Why because by the albay and supersonic plaisted looney eternal shall we say eastern virtue of shutting up from time to time as opposed to simply proclaiming everything from the rooftops that's effective strategy as opposed to opening your mouth full of time which is primarily driven ministries case by range of domestic political imperatives. Which in turn complicate the foreign policy agenda is saving to prosecute.
NBA Mock Draft 3.0
"And we are back talking two thousand twenty mock draft three point o our last mock draft of the year. It's draft day draft morning. What better to unwrap and a mock draft on draft morning. it's the second round. Now now's the time to confess. I'm really terrible at projecting second rounds like you know my hit rate and some drafts has been like one two three picks in the second round. It's it's so hard to keep track of the first round the wheels to sort of come off and these picks happened like every two minutes. I it's hard to really keep track. I did my best. I project where. I think particular players can go. You definitely don't really get deep into this when you're talking the nba scouts in executives about what they're going to do in the second round. They're still trying to figure out the first round as well. So i've tried to find some fits there so this is reported more chad ford speculation. Here about what's happening. The second round starts with the dallas mavericks this pick via the warriors taking malachi. Flynn the san diego state. Junior point guard One of the guys that frankly could go ten spots higher in the draft. I actually really love malachi flynn. There's kind of a lot of point guards kind of later in the first round which may push him out a little bit. But i actually think he's the guy who could step in play right away. I would actually love him in dallas. I think that'd be great. Pick for dallas at thirty one at thirty two. The charlotte hornets are on the board. They're getting this pick via the cavs. Paul read the sophomore forward center out of depaul. Have them going thirty two. This is john. Hollinger's been super high on all year. I think he's another guy who can guard positions on the floor. I really like him. Actually think he brings some stuff offensively as well. I personally like him. Better than precious. I'm right now. Could turn out to be a terrible take. But it's kind of what i think and i definitely think he could be an excellent fit. I'm in charlotte. Especially if they end up with lamelo ball and they're gonna need to add a defensive big man. As part of that package at thirty-three the minnesota timberwolves around the board. This'll be the third pick because they have to. First round picks. Tillman the junior power forward at michigan state. Everybody loves this kid. He's he's one of these guys like high floor. Low ceiling. just does his work every day. Great rebound or plays hard. I'm ken defend going. Bring be a great locker room guy is gonna find some rotation that somewhere I like him in minnesota on a team. That is trying to go forward. I think he actually adds a bit of a veteran presence to the locker room. At thirty four the philadelphia seventy sixers are on the clock. That get this. Pick via the hawks. Isaiah joe the arkansas shooting guard who is one of the best shooters in this draft. Crazy range. High volume of three point shots philadelphia. Always in need shooters. When you're going to be playing. Ben simmons on this team he certainly constructs the floor. And i'd like isaiah joe there them at thirty five the sacramento kings Via the pistons. Dan dotson to kansas sophomore guard. Who is one of the quickest players in the draft. He's an elite score excels off the getting to the basket not a great shooter a bit undersized for his position not really a point guard that's why he slides a few spots higher but could be instant offense off the bench for sacrimento at thirty five at thirty six the philadelphia seventy sixers back on the clock this time via that pick from the mix jordan aura the louisville junior who also is one of the better shooters in this draft. He has good size vers position. Good length i'm not sure exactly what else he brings to the table besides shooting but again i'm just loading philly up i with shooters at the moment at thirty seven. The washington wizards are on the board. They get this pick via the chicago. Bulls tyler bay the junior ford out of colorado who is one of the best athletes in the strath super explosive. Really hard worker on the defensive end still just kinda coming along on the offensive. And then i think that's been a concern. He's he's one of those guys that might be a little bit of a twitter. Not sure exactly what position he plays in the pros that causes him to slide. A few picks in this draft think this is still really value. and by the way when. We're talking about a lot of these guys dotson. Tillman for example malachi flan. These guys could all end up in the first round as well. Just have them the second thirty eight new york knicks via the hornets janis ramsey. The texas tech freshman guard again volume score can shoot it a little bit We're just loading the knicks up now with backward guys that can score the basketball. I'm not sure who's going to defend in new york. But he's an intriguing prospect. He's only nineteen years old. And i certainly there's upside there with the thirtieth pick in the draft at thirty nine the new orleans. Pelicans selecting this pick for the wizards. Daniela touro the minnesota sophomore center. Who had a really really strong summer season one of the more improved players in the country very skilled at big man. I'm great size. Adding just bore skill in size to this pelicans roster i'm at the moment If you remember earlier jalen smith. I'm selected at thirteen at forty. The grizzlies are on the board. This pick via the silence. This is the first pick that the grizzlies have been able to make in the twenty twenty. Nba draft a doco as a bouquet. The kansas center. Big guy seven. Seven wingspan seven footer. Really good athlete actually just dominant player in the pain. Terrible free throw. Shooter doesn't really do anything facing the basket. But when you have that size and length and athleticism. I think you get something done in. The and kind of reminds me deondraye jordan. A little bit and a little bit surprised. He doesn't go higher. I get there seems to be a penalty on the big minner plane or pain. Right now in the draft at forty one san antonio spurs back on the on the board yama dr the israeli guard nineteen year old for hop. Well tel-aviv and you know. He's such an intriguing prospect because he plays his butt off. His incredible energy is just making a difference when he's out there but he's not really a point guard. He's kind of more of a two guard in a point guards body. He's not like a great shooter. I'm athletically he's actually not bad at all but that lack of a jump shot kinda undersized i position that makes him more of a second round prospect at he absolutely wants to leave israel and come to the nba. And if it's the g. league next year and so he could be an interesting prospect for san antonio developed down the road
The Other Big Apple
"Well i was kind of. I guess in inadvertent midwife that we at the at the fellowship that we did back in what year was two thousand thirteen although we agree time has ceased to have any meaning. And that is michael pollen of michael palin fame. He is indeed the advert midwife of guest or pod. Because nikki and i were together at uc berkeley that year in two thousand thirteen out of fellowship. Run by michael. That's how we met. And you discovered your shared love of science slash food. yeah it's one of the happier offspring of that fellowship. Obviously if you're into the stories behind food and farming as we both are michael's writing is pretty much at the top of your list. We've wanted to have him on the show for ever and this episode was the perfect excuse to revisit one of our favourite of his books. The botany of desire in the botany of desire michael traces the stories of four plants and their intimate relationships with humans. One of those plans is the apple tree. And i don't know about you. But when i think of apple trees the first person is of is johnny appleseed. This is a very american thing to think of. I'd never heard of until. I moved here so for our non american listeners. This is what americans are thinking of when they think of johnny appleseed well they would probably have the walt disney image johnny appleseed which is of this you know barefoot guy on the frontier bringing goodwill sweetness to people when people hear johnny appleseed. It's it's very wholesome. It's very Uncontroversial he's a disney character right very soft. But actually the the real. Johnny appleseed and i use that word advisedly because there's so much we don't know about him is much more interesting in his book. Michael traces janis path planting apples across the us. And we're going to do the same here but i. There weren't actually apple's growing here. Before europeans arrived there crab apples that were here in the sixteen hundreds but native people did not have sweet apples. This is amy traverse. Oh she's the author of the apple lovers cookbook and senior editor at yankee magazine. So apple's are we think of apples as this american fruit and american as apple pie and we identify closely with apples americans but it turns out. They're not they're from kazakhstan around town called alma mata which means father of the apple. I'ma autism now called amati and it's the largest city in kazakhstan. I've never been there but if you go. Apparently you will see whole forests of apple's fifty foot tall apple trees. Apple's coming up in the cracks of the sidewalks. It's like a weed there and these apple's most of them look nothing like our image of the apple. I mean there's some the size of there's there's big brown ones there's just this incredible range and they're apple trees that are kind of prostrate and grow along the ground and ones that grow vertically ones that have canopies. I mean it's just incredible diversity but a lot of apples weren't particularly sweet or delicious. At least not to humans. They were dry and hard so did survive the drop to the ground and often the flesh was kind of bitter acidic and tannock because these chemicals were preservatives that would also help to fight up worms and insects and that was all useful because the apples needed to be eaten by bears to spread their seeds. And if you would like to hear what the delight of a group of bear cubs that has just come across the pile of fallen apples. Sounds like which of course you would you need to be on our special supporters mailing list gastropod dot com slash support bears. Yes there are a lot of bears and kazahstan. They love apples but like humans they also prefer sweeter ones and larger ones and even retro ones. These big red sweet apples sometimes appeared in all the different ones that grew wild and bears chose those and help spread their seeds and so the bears hopes for just the kind of apple's that we wanted the large sweet red ones and so then people who tasted these bear approved. Apple's turned into apple fans to and not just the locals because that area of kazakhstan was right in the middle of the silk road. An incredibly important trading route that stretched all the way from china to europe magin stumbling across. I mean you're living in a world with no sugar ray or at least it's a very rare. That kind of sweetness is extremely rare and very fleeting and you stumble across a forest where you find these fruits that are sweet and that actually keep well. I mean not a lot of fruits that you might find in that same forest like apricots will rot very quickly whereas an apple would last for weeks or maybe months and so people would pocket them and bring them to the next trading ports or the next trading town and they really spread that way and they flourished wherever they spread. because apple's have a couple of botanical superpowers. Apples are unique in that they easily enter. Breed with the native crab will species of whatever region. They end up in. And so those crab apples within s- place in the genes that allowed to survive in their climate. So that's super useful. Those local crab apples had jeans. That would be perfectly suited to the local environment.

I can remember to be honest it was a defensive horror show off against the shack talk team who let's not forget what may say six first choice players and a number of substitute says well, row without second reynolds the CAP team at it was just they fell off the conceding that I go they went completely to pieces gossamer spend back in the second off and pulled it back to three to lake your ruled out but that one make any once again just how bad they were in that I just bad. The. Made. Some big decisions with a view towards the classical at the weekend. He leaves out and he got lauded for leaving out crews and Ben's. Alex, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt a tiny bit because I say, Hey, it shocked are minus six. You're at home you're motivated because you had a stinker last week and against God and deserve to lose. Maybe this is a Good Game Benza and crows today off right. The problem is when Bensimon doesn't play the team, just don't function in attack a loop. Yovich again, last night he had one pray tame header on saw and that was the throughout the day and he was. As. Roma, chasing the comeback which tells you everything you need to know cross you could understand may be giving him a a great by the problem is with Raimondo ready missing can you really leave out these other subpoenas if the of the team nine know the Ramos isn't always a nice consistent defend that but you have to heat has been that he's got a slight meet problems. He wouldn't have let the game just get away from the way didn't stop and the this. I mean Rafael Veran. Dreadful and this is the session dreadful Champions League game in a row for him because let's not forget he was to blame but both goals they began. In the summer alongside etta mealy Tout Stewart looks nothing like being worth fifty million euros around with Chip Light Volume Marcello I love Marcelo it to be honest like. An ex player he kind of jumped the shark awhile ago. s the Monday was laid out. Position was appropriate. You want to go away with any any credit on the right hand side courtois, dot them out of trouble a couple times it wasn't just the tall maitree chances and took them. Three one on ones the coach manager save over the course of the nineteen minutes. So it could have been even worse I mean less season they lost. The game of the Champions League in Paris they had a really rocky start. This is didn't. On yeah, they came back. They weren't playing Schachter. Owner but let me finish this. Season so I don't think. A rocky a shaky start like this one is anything new for Sodano, for the club however I you Janis making mistakes I think the players only are not up to the task mentally physically and technically as a group not forget didn't sign anyone in the summer. A few of the players left Bahamas pressure is really under Alex because he's done of course and everything that he's achieved as a player and manager that club is huge but that's two defeats in a row obese two different competition, and then the classic the weekend will happen if they lose is three in a row. Or do you still think that still has enough credit in the bank to two last regardless of what happens on the weekend? Of course, he's calling credit in the bank. He's got more credit than anyone because what you've done by do you think he doesn't situation is somewhat unique because even though he's won two titles as a coach, even though you on those three genders lease in a row, there are still some nagging questions I think and legitimate questions about aspects of of the jump that he does and some people and least includes people at the club at Rome Madrid at the. Question exactly how good coaches to spy everything that he's not in terms of trophies one I don't think there's any risk of him being sacked in the short sample, but we'd see Dan would say is that you can never entirely ruled out the rescue him deciding to walk away if things aren't going well, and if he feels like he's not the right man for the joke is surprised when away lost time having just wonder champion slate a milk expect that to happen right now by. Signing the we can discount entirely. This is very different. Coach doesn't necessarily need you get. He doesn't need it in the same way that other coaches to. Feels like I say he's not the right map for the talk. If you will I I completely agree that he would walk like getting say like Oh goodness can go I mean. Again he said like tomorrow is GonNa be Sunny. Who who can come up with you feel I listen I would point out that when he walked away last time, it's because two of his superstars neither films there anymore both of through. Hissy, fits through toys out of the Pram after the game and he said I. Have enough of that.

So you can imagine the die of content, the type of information and wisdom that we're going to get in today's episode, and by the way in case you didn't know this is the third appearance of Dan. Daniela on our forecast and the last time we connected was some wouldn't thousand and eighteen sedan super excited to have you on our show. How's it going? Wow. Wonderful. As I said, if things are going any better I'd have to be twins. Almost feel a little bit guilty during the shut down during this corona craziness Farrah's it's been just it's amazing unplanned unexpected opportunity to to really pause to really stop to dig in and it's resulted in a lot of creative juices flowing and guy been busier than ever. And meanwhile, so many people in the world are really suffering and really struggling and so my heart goes out to people So you know what we we do, what we can we make the best of every situation and sometimes something that we think is something really negative turns out to be a blessing, the gift, and this that that's what's happening for us loosen our corner of the world's around this whole crazy shutdown thing. Absolutely I think it's been hard time for a lot of people around the world especially in terms of divisiveness, your people, both sides, and there's a lot of. Anxiety stress as well. But I think your services and your support are even more needed right now as you very. Profoundly, teach people how to breathe correctly and properly and well. So I think it's a very opportune moment validity to. For this interview I was hoping to start from very beginning. Maybe tell us where did you grow up and what was life as a kid for? Well, you know I was the kid who in the school yard was organizing all the breath holding competitions. You know I can remember we we play with hyperventilating and then like squeezy. Almost pass out and you know just. Playing with the plane with the graph I since I was raised in new Bedford Massachusetts Which is where Moby Dick you know there's a whaling capital of the world. Catholic school who? factory Industry Town Garment Factory Textile Mills the cushion it river was right next to. US some very old American Indian tradition in that part of the world. And So the energy is really beautiful in the forest and long the ocean there. but yeah I. turned onto the breath as a little Catholic boy in kindergarten hearing about how God breathed into the nostrils of man the breath of life and man became a living soul and I don't know it just hearing that as a little Feiger kid. I Dunno lit something in me and And just been a missionary for the breath ever since and every job I've ever had and. has kept taking me back to the breath in one way or another until it's the only thing I've really done now for the last forty years is is been a missionary for the breath. So and it's you know forty fifty years ago I felt like a voice crying out in the desert. Breathing what's that breathing a? and. So now it's great that the science is caught up and can now we have understanding on my some of the ancient yoga practices and guys practices and why they work and and what's what's involved in them and So I love that science and spirit meet and the breath is is exactly a perfect place or science and spirituality could meet.
The gender beauty gap
"Most of US understand that there are hidden costs to being a woman. Blame it on advertising the cult of self-improvement blame it on sexism and the rich white guys who ruled the world. The fact is is at ton of pressure for women to be beautiful and present well. The stack support is to research, says in Two Thousand Sixteen Australian women spent fifteen billion dollars grooming themselves compared to men who spent just seven. So we're spending more than double on our appearances than men. But what else is it costing us? He's Emma, Hussar. We spent three years in the federal parliament as MP. I remember one day my colleague a male came in, and he was doing the segment before me. He literally popped car in the basement caught lift up the same way I did busted into the makeup room got some patronizing went right coup, and he had coming donny's hair and makeup. was. A powder powder awnings noise for maybe ten six, not even lying Janis interview comeback, and said goodbye and left, and I hadn't even gotten out of the way and I went. He blasted like this sucks. It really really sucks. The gender beauty gap his chewing up out time, not just money, and you WanNa know what else it's costing. US Six out of ten women opt out of really important life activities like hanging out. Out with friends and family, going on a date, being assertive or going to see a doctor because they're worried about the way that they look, that's Dr Phillip, Dietrich's, she's a psychologist whose done a lot of research into body image, and yes, you heard right. The gender beauty gap also creates a reluctance to do not just the things that we love, but actually the things we need to do like. Sit Doctor Up. She's quoting research done by a private research company into how more than ten thousand women across the world felt about their bodies, seven and ten Australian. Women's said that they feel like there's pressure for women to look a certain way. We know it affects psychological and physical health, several decades of really robust evidence, showing that we also know that it affects our social. Social Relationships, and interestingly also in the workplace in education aspirations, so this research suggesting that women you know not turn up to work on or go for that job interview on days that they're really feeling like they don't meet standards of what should be acceptable in terms of how they look, so it's having an impact on all key areas of women's lives. This. Episode is all about the gender beauty gap, an idea sometimes also known as the grooming gap and the beauty expectation gap. And look in the fought for gender equality. There are a million gaps. He's a snapshot of the future out orders the set to inherit. Women Orgasm lists that's a gap we masturbate lists. And we get paid list a lot full pay gap and at school for kids. There's even a fitness gap way. Young girls feel too self conscious to exercise. Within these entirely unfair system, we're also expected to throw resources into looking. For as long as we possibly can and to tonight asleep cling to that as we will evaporate if no one thinks we're hot. Dr Phillips describes the impact of all this pressure and. Chat about having to appear attractive as a quiet public health emergency. So. It's now more normal for women and girls to be unhappy with the way that they look and we see prevalence rates in the research bearing from anywhere from fifty to ninety percent of women and girls. Feeling the way that they look is not good enough why this is concerning on one hand. That might seem quite trivial. How does worrying about the way you look really play out in the big scheme of things, but what we also see from the research several decades now is that when women and girls feel like they don't look. Look good enough. They more likely to experience depression stress, anxiety engage in unhealthy weight. Control practices exercise too much or too little, and so what we have is, it's an issue that affects most women and girls. It has serious negative consequences for their physical health and wellbeing, so that indicates that it's a public health issue. Can we talk about the different types of time that we spend on appearance? So there's the actual sort of preparation for the day where you stand in front of the mirror that kind of time, but then you describe. We chew up, are in time. Something called body checking. What is that buddy? Checking really comes from this theory code, self, objectification, theory, and essentially what that is, when as a woman go, we start to see ourselves more as objects to be looked at by other people, often by men through the mail gaze rather than our bodies being you know these. Tools on being really multidimensional, and when we start to feel that way about ourselves, we're much more likely to engage in body, checking or self surveillance so really checking in with how looking at all times during the day. So that could be when you're walking along the shops, checking your reflection in the mirror, or you're walking around the shop. So when you see any kind of reflective surface, it can also be things like when sitting at amazing in the board room and you will kind of. Of judging how much space you'll taking up in the chair for example, all of these little kind of subtle moments where we're just thinking okay, how do I look right now? How am I presenting to other people, but it's also the amount of cognitive energy all that thought process and the amount of attention that we're paying to thinking about how we look rather than necessarily focusing on the task at hand, so it says incremental moments that count as well when we think about forty
Afghanistans power-sharing deal
"Is really an indication that a given status coherent cohesive unfunctional when more than one person to be the head of it indeed.

New opportunity to boost Indonesia-Australia economic ties - The Jakarta Post
"Few international problems in the post world war. Two era have proved difficult for our nation as development of friendly policy towards indonesia. Just think about it. Jakarta's annexation of west papua in nine hundred sixty to the attempted coup d'etat and successful counter-coup by the indonesian army that was nineteen sixty five the invasion of as. Taymor seventy five. The dili massacre ninety. One the east team or mission in ninety nine. And who can forget the controversies over terror. Attacks live cadillacs bullpens successive wives of boatpeople this spying revelations and drug trade and of course those executions so has president jarkko daito or jacuzzi or jacoby as he's known has. His visit marked a new era in australia. Indonesia relations this week to cowie was only the second indonesian leader to address a joint sitting of parliament and he came to camera bearing a gift. He's approval of the trade deal between our two countries. Greg feely is associate professor of indonesian politics at the australian national university's college of asia and the pacific and diming kingsbury is professor international politics at deakin university in melbourne. greg damian. Welcome back to our in. Thank you now damien. Does that you kelly visit this week. Does that maka a dramatic breakthrough in australia. Indonesia relations look it's a really positive sign and it does mock an improvement in relations but i don think in itself comprises an entirely new relationship. It's just a step in the right direction. Okay so the the relationship still presumably dogged by bitterness and suspicion but it was obvious support and even warmth towards education from both sides of politics gregg fairly. Yes that's right i think The y.`all would characterize it is the jacobi visa was building on the breakthrough which is the comprehensive economic partnership agreement. That was signed early last year. And what saw with dakota's visa was. He's personal preparedness and preparedness. He's government to really put its white behind the agreement. I think a lot of people think the agreement in pie terms is very good but the question is canopy implemented properly. Can the red type be cleared away in indonesia. Can we persuade australian businesses to invest more Generously in indonesia and i think the jacoby visa guy very positive signs for that still a lot of things to done for that The potential of that agreement to be realized but it was really good. Move in that direction. Again it's been said that. The many lingering suspicions profile in jakarta indonesians still resent l leading role insecure in a team os independence because it was more than twenty years ago. Yes i think One of the ironies here he said indonesia now has very good relations with east t- more and he's teamer leaders Fighted in fact when i go to jakarta and the strata is still has this legacy of suspicion towards indonesia. I think you have to back. Partly in history this great saints vulnerability that Many asians feel that logic countries or large countries around them at trying to split up their country to conduct. Bulkin is it and the ace taymor. Even though he's team always not part of the original borders of the dutch colony. Die still feel that as team will confirmed that Other countries have these designs upon the country and upon its unity and after his team. More focusing shifted to papa. This strategy may still want to divide papua dining. You've written a lot about west papua and at the heart of the standoff in two thousand and six paul showed that something like seventy five percent of australian supported independence for the former dutch colony. This why the indonesians are uneasy about estrada's position. He certainly one of the issues in the makeup of mistrust and complexity in the relationship There's there's been longstanding depths in jakarta's to either strang government doesn't do more to acquire pro-separatist Sentiment in australia. They believe the particularly the ngo sector has played a role in stirring up separatist sentiment in west. Papua and there is Continuing concern that australia has too much of a focus particularly on eastern indonesia which is also the poorest part of the country. Well how then do we bridge. These divides greg. I mean to. What extent is this new free. Try deal. This is the so-called indonesia australia comprehensive economic partnership agreement. Ten years in the making to what extent does that he'll these divisions. I don't know that it heals the divisions poseidon. I think many of the the list of things you you sit out at the beginning of the interview. I think we have always had the potential. I knew things like that to occur but one of the consistently underperforming parts of the bilateral relationship has been the economic ties and so this comprehensive agreement will hopefully see much more economic activity between the two countries and that in itself might provide some kind of deepest ability but if the economic relationship expand by site thirty to forty percents in the next few years diamond. Wouldn't the free try deal really mocking important development for the relationship a look. There's no question that it's an important step in in in strengthening relationship. This guy is back to what gareth evans was talking about in the nineteen eighties. Where he said we needed to add ballast to the relationship unbalanced. He meant if we can get a strong economic relationship between australia and indonesia implies than the rest of it will follow behind because there will be a an upfront primary interest in preserving the economic relationship. And that's always been a difficulty. In the relations destroy and strength companies have invested in indonesia but not to a great extent. The head found difficulties. There this free trade agreement certainly opens up more opportunity for investments and tried but again and again as greg has alluded to. I think the question will be. How much strategies is to take out this opportunity and whether or not they say the the problems of doing business in indonesia over combat is free trade agreement whether or not there's going to be impediments to a greater degree of engagement. My guests greg. Feely from new in camera and damien. Kingsbury from deacon in melvin. And here's a little fun fact. This is according to the australian this week. It was chris. Bowen the library from benca podcast on iran and between the lines. It was chris bowen in his shirt who walked away the most chuffed with these brave. Jacoby interaction we he. The president complimented bowen's flawless fluency in indonesian. Little known fact chris. Bowen speaks indonesian now. A few years ago china's president she addressed indonesia's legislature to great fanfare. So the fees guy. Now what's the nature of the relationship now between jakarta and beijing greg. There's a lot of similarities between indonesia's relations with china and distributors Janis niger economic partner for indonesia. It's also niger investor in the country indonesia's increasing the Pot of china's belt and road initiative. So it's getting a lot of development money. These increasing penetration of lodge chinese corporations building infrastructure for example hospitalized row link between the capital jakarta and the regional capital abandon So there's a. There's a lot of economic activity happening and president. She has very good personal relationship with prisoner jacoby but they're also tensions. One of the tensions is chinese fishing boat incursions into indonesian territorial waters In near the south china sea in the name of the island of tuna and that causes a lot of angst in indonesia sometimes confrontation between Nio vessels of both countries. Another problem is a fairly high level of underwent lying suspicion towards the chinese in indonesia so this often bubbles politically to the surface in indonesia and people say that indonesia is at risk of losing some sovereignty to the chinese and so this is always a break for a leader. Such as jacoby who badly needs chinese investment and the development expertise if he saying as Ext doing that excessively will then he will be attacked for that. Well could chana's rise than i mean. It's obviously threatening. The integrity of sovereign states around the region diamond could could china's roz helped draw camera and jakarta even closer. Yes look there's been a discussion now going back several years in canberra about a closest security relationship within the news yet it seems to be a natural hartman in the region Geography i think determines that to a large extent but our strategic interests similar in relation to china about countries want to have a strong economic relationship with china We want to have china's investments and tried to sell into china but we also want to limit china's expansion in the region strategic rich particularly in the south china sea and In relation to them turner islands which is at the southwest of the south china saying there is neither lapping climbed by china and indonesia. And that's what to the tensions of mid january this year. What we're seeing though is. Indonesia is welcoming china roman hand but in terms of economic growth and development but in terms of china's growing strategic runyon ambition. There's a great deal of skepticism. I think in indonesia as the reason chinandega familiar story. Now let's turn finally gentlemen to indonesia internally. Let's get your reaction to something. The indonesian journalist. Julia sirak osama. This is what she told my. Rn colleague andrew west. This week joey. His record on democracy and human rights has declined and in fact now many activists think that not just activists observers think that democracy indonesia has lowest point in twenty years. It is ironic since when we had the reform era after suharto stepped down. That was supposed to be the beginning of democratization in indonesia but that has opened up a pandora's box and released all the traditional religious conservatives and mainly religious groups has sacrificed human rights. And what he says in a book phobia and intolerance for the sake. Offline call stability. Indonesian journalist julia sura kasama on iran's religion and ethics program. This week diming kingsbury. Look i think that Jacoby has moved in a couple of areas which have raised eyebrows. About his commitment to a plurality and human rights particular around the issues of religion and religious tolerance and so on. But broadly. I think jacoby is an inheritor of the reform tradition particularly that started by cecilia among indiana and that he really is deepening and embedding democratic practice. If we some limitations around the edges. Yeah well greg failure. I mean it's often argued that indonesia the fourth because nation in the world. We tend to forget that. It represents a persistent triumph of democracy this the nation journalists big for a lot of activists when she says that the indonesian ideal of tolerance really has been destroyed. So i think it's probably i'll i think she's somewhat. This is always a matter of the bites. Don't mean any disrespect to julius Sort of kasuma but Under jacoby in fact. Religious tolerance has somewhat improved on democracy. Some of the things that jacoby has initiated have really harmed the quality of democracy and there are several things that are being discussed by. he's government wrought now and by the parliament which if implemented could be a considerable reversal. He wouldn't stop indonesia being a democracy. But it would reduce the quality of the democracy greg damian and important discussion. Thanks so much again for being on our end
Super Bowl Player Predictions
"All right Kramer kick things off. What is your first? I Chiefs Related Super Bowl profit. Well we started by talking about We started super bowl week by talking. About how one of the angles is this chiefs rushing attack I the niners rushing defense. which is the weakness of this team? They are San Francisco's defense thirteenth and adjusted line yards on the D. Line in eleventh and DVR against the run. This team has not gone under this total of eight and a half eighteen rushing yards. They've only got under that once in the last. Ten Games I it seems almost too obvious that they'll they'll be attacking hacking this angle so it gives me a little pause but like I said they've gone over this total nine out of ten. It's not a bad matchup. People will point out all with San Francisco's got a great defense. They got a good defense. They don't have a great defense against the run so there will be opportunity. Andy Andy. Reid is one of the greatest coaches in the again. One of the greatest offensive minds not to win a superbowl for sure not to win the Super Bowl but he he he gets running backs ax to produce no matter what they look like. So eight and a half yard seem silly. They've gone well north of two hundred in both games. This does seem really low. Oh I couldn't be jumped right off the screen emmy as a former tight end as a A former are you referencing as a former China and I also worked with a hall of Fame First Ballot Rob Gronkowski which Danny worked on the show as well we got a witness not know how to Pronounce Chore Four In Person. George sure calling worse. Instead of Chore Sports He Kept Calling at George Sports all right rob just one more time. He's like coming up George now the wartime I think it's the sports and then finally the Co host is like you don't know what a chore is like Washing Dishes Sweeping floors and he goes. I never did any jurors ores growing up. I was too busy scoring touchdowns to smile. This big GROG again channel. He thinks he's GRONK. He thinks he's King of the BRAS. There's only one continue the bras. And it is Travis Kelsey. I'm taking Kelsey to have more receiving yards than than kindle over. You're still you're still avenging. Take a loss in the albro category. I was bullshit that he didn't get in. And I think kindles little overrated and I liked the minus one and a half yards Kelsey Chelsea against Kendall that's risky bro. Kelsey is an a seasoned bro now older Keel. Those two young. He's only as a young and up and coming Bro. I I think he's again. This is just I had the early take. I kill sucks at home instead of adjusting to the optics or the reality. I'm GonNa just lean in. I'm going all in on trump. So you know. Sometimes you're presented with evidence and you just have to ignore it. I'm locked in. I'm okay I was GONNA see. Danny I know you gave me your props one. You liked Nicole Hardman. I just love McCall Hardman in this game we he. He caught a pass in the chargers. Game to really start the ball. This was the week. Seventeen chargers game caught a pass to get the ball. Rolling with our offense later had a sweep. Like they're we're GONNA use them. They've been waiting to use him for something if he's maybe it's a sammy. Watkins Pass. I would say if you're gonNA scheme something like that up the other end of it is going GonNa be somebody like Nicole Hardman McColl Hartman. Scores a touchdown in this game was three hundred over at my book. Make some money this guy. They've been sitting on what he can do all season. They've been waiting for him to get better at whatever the hell it is route running. You know timing. Whatever it is that he needed to do? He's doing it. He's more trust in the offense. I think more so than demarcus Robinson I think he scores a D.. In this game let me ask you Sean. Do you take over twenty three and a half yards over one and a half catch or over fifteen and a a half yards for longest catch. Well I guess I'll jump to my second one because it's literally one of those. How when I wrote it down McColl Hardman's that's total over? mybookie was twenty three and a half up to twenty six or twenty. Six ounce. Sounds like it's down to twenty three and a half. Do whatever it is. I like it over. This kid is a burner. Oh I think he can get it in one catch again speed kills and I think they're gonna be focusing on Hill. He's along I don't think is going to have a huge game now. Maybe breaks it off. Maybe he does but I think Sal is going in there with that mindset of. We're not letting tyreek Hill beat us in this game so I I'm throwing a little a little tiny tyreek hill and beat and didn't mention the field. That's always trying to move past that I feel like don't you. You want to protect yourself against that one catch for twenty one yards and just take longest reception over fifteen and a half. Oh see well that was total yards. But you're right I yeah what do you want to do. So you're saying I feel you'd be gets a catch. It's going to be like a twenty yarder. Always does he get the second catch to get over catch props over the total total yardage lab take longest or first reception is twelve and a half yards now. Hopefully they don't go to a screen or something to him. It's Y- yeah. Is it a reception as it. Total yards what we talking about my twenty three and a half was total receiving received but Kramer is making a case here and a good case. That maybe you're better off off just playing the over. I catch or global catch. He's only expected to have one and a half. So maybe two and they're saying twenty-three which means they're expecting directing two catches of twelve yard. That's an interesting way to all right so you talked me into all right. GimMe Gimme. I'll switch it up. I'll give I'll go over. I catch twelve and a half yards. Now no actually. I'll stick with my total because I want to. If he doesn't get it on the I catch then I have some live bets. Already have have too much stuff going to see what we're having here is. We're having the synapses firing in my going on right. Now we're in the car with with Johnny and Johnny's Janis driving and we just had a discussion that he was going to have with his buddies later. Now he doesn't have to have that conversation tech. We've sorted it out. He's not gonNA play. I cash over twelve and a half hour. We're going to move forward. What's your second point of the discussion? Sammy Watkins over three and a half catches this is I ah I I know I'm chasing a little bit. But I do like the angle that they are gonNA shut tyreek Hill down. I like the angle that they're going to try to shut Travis Kelsey down and and I'm probably going to attack props around everyone else A Hill and Kelsey are going to be the chalk your plays for the yardage rich props be more people will probably play those overs. So I'm GONNA attack is like Sammy. Watkins and I think he is the guy that is going to benefit the most. Because he's the guy that seems to be running more their possession stuff and as they stretch the field vertically Sean they call that taking the top off the deep and that leaves a lot of room in the middle for a guy like Samya walk in so I really like him to get three and a half catches. I mean you you got to figure how many throws is Patrick Mahomes GonNa have. I can't imagine he's having less than forty throws which means I can't imagine having less than like thirty two thirty two catches and then if you take the attempts so over or even the pass yards over with homes what is actually looked at it. Plays out in both scenarios. Where either they're throwing the ball a lot and winning or if they do get down there behind hind they're playing catch up? It makes sense for either a Kansas City win or unfortunately San Francisco win the over and and then passing the ball. It does kind of make sense. We haven't talked a ton about the running backs Darwin Thompson. What is he involved in this game I think so I mean the over are underway? What one and a half Kerry Russia rushing attempts? I mean there's lesean McCoy is persona non grata. Now he's he had some fumble issues he. He's he's actually quick and I have liked watching him break off a few
Trump says first phase of trade deal reached with China
"Trade negotiators from the US and China have reportedly reached an initial deal that might end the eighteen month trade war. President Trump tweeted yesterday. That a quote big deal with China was very close. Here in studio is Scott Kennedy. He's the trustee chair in Chinese business and economics at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Thanks for coming in good morning. Okay okay so do we know whether this deal is happening for sure. We don't. It's very likely that it is But we've had four other premature announcements and so we don't want to say for sure Until the Chinese Confirm it and on Friday. They did not all right. We're not GONNA do that on morning. In addition do we know what's in this. This initial deal was proposed. Deal not hundred percent because no one's seen a text yet but most likely it includes Some Chinese concessions Russians to buy American products some concessions regarding intellectual property rights and other things and then a step down in tariffs from both sides. Okay okay is it possible based on sort of looking at what the US gets out of this. And what China gets out of this to say which country comes out the winner what say in the short short term The Chinese come out ahead of the. US really doesn't get what it was originally looking for which was trying to constrain Chinese industrial policy instead instead it sells some products To the Chinese which probably would have been sold anyway from China's perspective they get their us off the back for a while At at least through the rest of the first trump administration okay at the root of this trade war as you point out is a fight about intellectual property the United States has China takes aches from US companies that want to do business in China and that is simply unfair. President trump talks about this all the time. Does this deal sort that out. A little bit of the Chinese Janis have changed. Some of their laws to Step up protection of intellectual property rights to punish those who who steal it Liberalize is there economy to make it a little bit harder to course American companies but overall It's GonNa take a while to see if those promises really translate into actual activity in in the meantime Chinese subsidies and other things that promote Chinese industry at the expense of others. won't stop

"When you read it. As when she kind of in some ways it was inevitable in some ways it wasn't but when she shoots heroin for the first time it's just like Oh that led her down the path that little to me to her death. It's hard to see otherwise. Yeah it's it's a horrible horrible problem problem in lots of her heroes. You know Billie holiday and a lot of the jazz players got into heroin and there was this horrible kind of romantic kind of idea. Yeah about heroin. And of course she really got into it when she did leave big brother and was trying to for the first time. Be A bandleader which takes it's a Lotta work to learn how to instead of being a member of the band to run the band to hire the players to be in charge plus write new songs doing a whole new stall music etc and there was so much pressure She was getting tons of media attention and so she started just kind of going into that blanket of numb numbness of heroin. And Yeah it's so many musicians musicians. I mean look at Eric Clapton. Keith Richards Dwayne Allman. I mean there were so many people from that same period that horribly fell into the same trap and the same time as much as there are things that when you look at it seemed to lead in the direction of while she would have been pretty downcast at that point in her life. There's an awful fight with her mother were mother says I wish he never been born which aches and she was very upset about the death of Jimmy Hendrix which people don't realize that didn't know each other super well well but they had a real sort of affinity for each other tight and so you can say. Oh Jeez you know. Things were bearing down on her at the same time. What actually really happened as you clearly tell us she just had the wrong kind of heroin? She did dose. That was four. What's usually would have? But she had China White. I think a very pure kind of heroin. There was a total axe. Yeah it was kind of like the whole federal thing today and horribly you know Janice had a drinking problem for sure and drinking alcohol. Alcohol is much worse on the voice than drugs heroin so basically she was trying to cut back on the drinking. She loved her band. She loved working with her producer. Paul Rotschild I think she was co-producing record with him. She had a lot yeah Pearl. She had a lot of input and things were going well for her but awfully she was trying Weiner self off the drinking sadly she runs into her dealer at the hotel. She was staying in Los Angeles and she ended up by herself beginning. This really pure dose of China white just had come into the country for the first time it was I think something like eight people. Od that same night that she did on the same heroin so horribly. That's what ended. Her life was just an awful accident and they also didn't have the kind of rehabs they have now. Yes she'd been clean for about four or five months so of course we're tolerance was much lower as well so yeah it was just. She didn't have really a great support system to stay clean some of the people in her life who who had helped her clean up around at that time and again she was by herself. There was no one there to revive her. It was so pure. I don't know maybe they couldn't have who knows but Yeah it's awful and usually she would mainline heroin again. She just relapsed so she was just skin popping so which it's a little bit less of an effect than say the way she had back in the past and her junkie days and this has been today's wrong stone music now.

"When a couple of semesters then she dropped out just the week of her twentieth twentieth birthday and that's when she moved out of San Francisco and was doing the coffeehouse folk scene kind of thing bland. bessie Smith songs in her own stuff and she did actually you. You know one of her future band members who actually formed big brother and holding company basis. Peter Albin he was on that folk scene he and his brother had a little duo and so she did kind kind of museum then so a lot of people who would become part of her inner circle just a few years later in sixty six when she moved out for good and joined big brother and the Holding Company Company. That's when she got embedded with them. Let's jump to sixty six when dance. Joplin moves out to San Francisco again and and this time big brother and holding company are essentially waiting for her. She got audition like the moment. You got there pretty much. Yeah I mean they've been together since sixty five had been playing some of the crazy like atr tests and things like that and you know the scene was really starting to cook by sixty six in San Francisco. I mean you know you're talking about the summer more of love. Really you know. Sixty six was the real summer of love. And that's when she arrived in June now Chet Helms who she knew also Taksin met him in Austin Austin in that period you know sort of be confusing but in sixty three. She had originally hitchhike with him to San Francisco. He stayed when she left a comeback back to get off speed and everything so anyway he became really part of the whole Ground Zero of the family dog he started avalon ballroom so he was part of that and he was managing big brother and the Holding Company. Now a couple of bands had female singers. Great Society had one name Grace Slick and another one. Lynn called Jefferson. Airplane had a Sydney Anderson and later of course grace would take her place finalized yet but Big Brother other Peter Album who co-founded it was doing most of the singing but you know it was a very democratic banned. It was part of that whole communal kind of things just like grateful dead at that time. Time so different singers sang different songs. Different members of the band. There was two guitarist. Same Andrew and James Gurley. They contributed songs to and they sang some mm songs but they were realizing that they had a strong female singer. Could bring them up a notch you know and so Janice came out and you know. She thought it was an audition but the the minute. She opened her mouth and started singing. They knew my Gosh. This woman is amazing and she had never ever sang with an electric fan before she suddenly had had to completely change her style because she had these really loud guitars behind her. They were rehearsing at this old funky carriage house. Kind of loft place with no monitors senators or anything. I mean the clubs in have monitors really and she had to be able to hear herself suddenly seeing over this glaring. They called Freak rock at the time so it was. It was a huge again another evolution musically for Janice to adapt and come up with this whole new style of singing and of course develop up this amazing stage presence that she did. Yeah I thought that was fascinating that she hadn't thought of herself at all as a rock singer up until practically that moment when she got in front of Big Brother in the holding company she really had thought of herself as a blues singer. Had done this route. CR stuff that leaned towards country but there she was is and it's sort of like she had gone to a certain point in her development but it took standing in front of that band to take all the way to being the Janis Joplin that the world would know if yeah exactly she worked again very hard on developing this unbelievable stage presence that she had the way that she was able to connect act with. Her audiences is unparalleled. I mean I have interviewed people for the book who saw her and sixty six play at San Francisco State soon after she joined the band and today they're still talking about that experience as if it just happened last week it was that powerful and especially I think for Women Janez able to tap into these deep feelings. He's losses feelings of shame. Disappointment things that most of us want to hide and not express it all. We don't want people. Yeah no we even feel those things but she was able to tap into that and then put it out through her vocals and just such an authentic way and holy holy connect with people so instead of singing to them. It was almost as she was singing for them. She was expressing these feelings that they had themselves and just blew people away. The Big Brother in holding coming didn't quite know what they're getting into of course and the success was an immediate but it was a snowball downhill once it picked up momentum momentum it got almost out of control pretty fast and obviously Monterey pop was a big moment in there. Yeah I mean here's the thing. Big Brother Janice loved that band and they had had a very cool thing that they did when she joined. They were very improvisational and they did. A lot of core punk rock stuff. I love hearing some of their stuff and she was really really into that too but she again. She was restless soul when it came to her music. She didn't want to stick with one thing. She was like a Neil young type. You know she wanted to keep doing different things and even early on soon. After she joined the band she actually almost quit to join this kind of supergroup that elektra records was trying to put together. That would have been and her with the Great Taj Mahal. Stephan Grossman fabulous finger picker. So who knows what could have happened but her love for the guys and they really do not want her to quit and do this. They had a month long residency in Chicago. Coming up which on the surface was really a disaster because again this was late summer of sixty. XT6 and hippies were not very known quantities in Chicago Illinois at that time and people were kind of horrified and they were having to play five sets a night night at this club called mother blues and could barely get any audience in the air so the thing is was forced them to really expand the repertoire. They wrote new songs. Things added more songs to their sats and Janice had to work her butt off to get to get people's attention to get them to stick around and listen so really early helped her hone her craft as a performer on stage. So again big brother though they were a democracy. Peter Album was pretty much. The band leader her again. He was one of the guys that started the band so gradually though people just really glommed onto Jan spy when they returned back from Chicago in the fall all of sixty six and even Jerry Garcia told one of the first new rock scenes. That have just started that time before rolling stone and started hey you know Janice chaplain is amazing singer and I think the band is working their material to be a better fit with her vocals kind of thing and so that's kind of what happened and they just discovered more material that was perfect for them and we're gradually building an audience but it wasn't until of course about a year later after. She joined that they did Monterey REPAP. And then that's when really they got national attention for the first time and again Janice became the real focal point of the press and of people. You know important. People in the industry astray like Clive Davis at Columbia. Who would sign them? Albert Grossman Bob Dylan's manager arguably the most famous music manager in the country ended up signing joining them etc.. There's the part where and it's such a stereotype. But I'm sure it didn't make it any less painful for the band when they see the cut of the Monterey pop film and the Roseau Oh Jeez it's a lot of Janice although I have to say it's all in the eye of the beholder because if you you know I've looked at that footage so many times and of course every time I see ball and chain it just it never goes away how powerful that performances. I mean it's so fresh and killer but you know it does actually open with tight tight close up shots of the guys in the band doing the intro the musical in trial so that is in their. Unfortunately they did cut out this very long James Gurley. Qatar break they did cut that out. And then you know once Janez start singing but realistically I mean you can't take your eyes away from her so I mean Pinna Baker the great eight documentary filmmaker who just passed. He was nuts over her and the camera just couldn't look away. The editor couldn't look away so it's kind of understandable how that would happen open. Lets you let sort of force of nature into your band. It's GonNa take over but I mean there's a long standing debate that you get into in the book big brother. The whole company were one of the most sort of critically derided bands of their era in some ways. They're always was this kind of running thing of they can't I can't really play. They weren't up to genesis talent and what I didn't really know until I read. Your Book is how aware Janice became of that criticism and how aware Albert Grossman was of that criticism and also propagated himself and but at the same time they were doing as you said there was something punk rock and cool about. Maybe people didn't appreciate so well that whole feel versus technique kind of thing. I mean technically you know they could pull it off right but their whole vibe was. It's all about the feel and that was the importance for them was to just kind of go with it and yeah they would hit bad notes or they would you know it was punk rock. You know it was. Garage is rock kind of thing and I love that kind of music and stuff. Then you had these people like the Mike Bloomfield's the Paul butterfield's you know some really incredible. Great technicians missions. Really great great players. Who would be very critical of they're playing and and all that kind of stuff but you know again you could look at them and say well these guys just is play the same kind of stuff over and over and over just Kinda matter what your taste is? The big break was because yeah John is wanted to do other stuff. She was obsessed with Otis just reading. She was obsessed with soul music. She loved a Rita's. Atlantic records debut. She loved Etta James. I mean she loved some of the stuff being cut in muscle shoals and Memphis and she wanted to try to sing with that sound and yeah that was not in big brother's wheelhouse at all. They did what they did. Very very well but Janice wasn't content to just do one thing. She wanted to keep moving. Keep trying different things. So yeah ultimately even if they'd been like the most perfect proficient technicians and super polished and all that kind of stuff she would have eventually moved on still. The book gets had a bit the issue of whether she was entitled to Sing this music which is always a question that's asked and people think it wasn't asked until recently but actually was asked going all the way back to the sixties way before to jazz and all sorts of things and she is an example of.

"Which is what we're going to be talking about? Today is Osso two time grammy nominee and the longtime editor of Rolling Stones Book Division and a lot of books came out of that job. He asked over forty bucks over the years from photo books Anthologies of writing from the magazine. Kazini going back to the earliest issues to all kinds of rock and roll reference books the Rolling Stone Encyclopedia Rock and roll album. Guide elsewhere. The history of rock and roll. We did it all. Aw and you wrote biographies of Alex Chilton and Gene Autry. So this is your third biography but this book Janice her life and music is is a real accomplishment I think the highest compliment. I can pay to. It is by the end. I was dreading what was coming as I was was reading the last one hundred two fifty pages and then for the first time. This is someone who died before I was born. I never mourned her until I read this book and after I finished the book I was really really sad for a while. You know. It's her life is in some ways a tragedy in some ways. Not How do you see that. Well yes I mean she. She died way too young. I came to love Janice myself working on this book and interestingly I was alive when she was around down but I was just a wee lassie living North Carolina and basically Pearl posthumous album. That came out in seventy one was the first Janice album that I got and and I didn't know that much about her. As far as her own path her own journey as a musician as an artist. I of course read some books along the way. And she created such a vivid persona this image that I bought hook line and sinker this kind of Blues Mama and this kind of this flash of talent and and energy and then poof she was gone like a comet but going back and learning about her over actually quite a few years going back to when I was out rolling stone and got got to participate in conferences of the Rock Hall of Fame About Janice I decided wow you know there's so much about her I don't know and I really want to understand. Janice the person listen but also Janice the musician because I had never really gotten a sense of that from the other books so luckily for me I got to meet people. Close goes to her her bandmates people that worked with Chet Holmes who took her to San Francisco for the first time back in sixty three before big brother and the Holding Company and I was able to go back and meet friends of hers from High School and Learn about her youth in her evolution as an artist looking to find out about music and things like that that it took her on her journey out of Port Arthur Texas so yes. I'm always sad. I still tear up sometimes when I'm reading my book myself when we lose her but the the thing about genesis is she made a lot of tough decisions and she was fearless and she knew what she was doing. She knew she was taking a lot of risks. So I really do not want her to come across as a victim in my book. I mean. We're the victims because we lost our but she made those choices and you know sadly it was an accidental overdose. That took her out when she was only twenty seven hour. Among the many things I was struck by is the extent to which Janice was pushing pushing boundaries for a young woman in any era but especially her era and it actually reminded me weirdly of ethnic Curtis's recen- in Bio of Lou Reed where you learn. How ahead of the time? He was where people in high school were just like. This guy is insane and it was in some ways very similar because these were people who were literally ahead of their time they were ready to create the next generation the next era but she was already living it although from her perspective perspective. She was a Beatnik so she was in previous era. But what surprised you. Most about how far she pushed it even by the time she was eighteen years old. Yeah it's interesting. You bring up the Lou Reed book by Anthony Curtis Because I did read that book and loved it and I thought there were some real connections and the persona of both Lou Reed and John I mean I think Lou himself was also very much inspired by the beats early on and there was that whole idea of for Janice when she was fourteen years old she read on the road. Jack Kerouac when it was published fifty seven and his whole concept of beat being kind of beaten down you know outsider Outcast but still trying to experience life experience the dark corners of life away from that post World War Two optimistic like you know the white picket fence and everything you know the husband wife and two kids and the dog that kind of idea of life and Janice at such a young age really glommed onto the idea. The beats soon. After that she discovered the blues she.

"Yeah yeah so she really liked to put it out there for people to learn about her heroes house and a lot of them were women is also important to note how many women as you point out were inspired by Janice yeah mix and a million other people from stevie Nicks to Alicia Lisa Keys. I mean that's pretty cool. A wide range of different styles of artists have been inspired by the different facets of Genesis Artistry. Now when you get into genesis drug abuse and her self destructiveness some of it seemed to be powered by a real sort of existential depression. She she called the cosmic blues. Her father had a similar thing he called it. The Saturday night swindle. What was that well? Her Dad was pretty much a fatalist and told told her when she. I was Kinda down and out in San Francisco about sixty four or something like that. Hey look you know in ain't never gonNA get any better you know in Janice. She had that fifties optimal you know you work hard and you get better and then you'll be happy one day and basically his kind of existential show anx was no matter how hard you work. You think you're going to get the Saturday night to go out and have fun. Well guess what that's GonNa suck too you know you're gonNA wake up with a hangover the next day and feel like Shit Shit so Janice realized that no matter how much success she was going to have there's always going to be maybe disappointment loneliness emptiness other holes holes in her soul that you know as much as she wanted to be successful and wanted to be a rockstar. That wasn't gonNA fill that part. So yes she called the Cosmic Osmond Blues on this one of my favorite songs that she wrote Cosmic Blues which is on her first solo album I got to mow cosmic blues again. Mama which came out fifty years ago this year. I can't believe that use a in another moment. That caused dredd when you read it. As when she kind of in some ways it was inevitable in some ways it wasn't but when she shoots heroin for the first time it's just like Oh that led her down the path that little to me to her death. It's hard to see otherwise. Yeah it's it's a horrible horrible problem problem in lots of her heroes. You know Billie holiday and a lot of the jazz players got into heroin and there was this horrible kind of romantic kind of idea. Yeah about heroin. And of course she really got into it when she did leave big brother and was trying to for the first time. Be A bandleader which takes it's a Lotta work to learn how to instead of being a member of the band to run the band to hire the players to be in charge plus write new songs doing a whole new stall music etc and there was so much pressure She was getting tons of media attention and so she started just kind of going into that blanket of numb numbness of heroin. And Yeah it's so many musicians musicians. I mean look at Eric Clapton. Keith Richards Dwayne Allman. I mean there were so many people from that same period that horribly fell into the same trap and the same time as much as there are things that when you look at it seemed to lead in the direction of while she would have been pretty downcast at that point in her life. There's an awful fight with her mother were mother says I wish he never been born which aches and she was very upset about the death of Jimmy Hendrix which people don't realize that didn't know each other super well well but they had a real sort of affinity for each other tight and so you can say. Oh Jeez you know. Things were bearing down on her at the same time. What actually really happened as you clearly tell us she just had the wrong kind of heroin? She did dose. That was four. What's usually would have? But she had China White. I think a very pure kind of heroin. There was a total axe. Yeah it was kind of like the whole federal thing today and horribly you know Janice had a drinking problem for sure and drinking alcohol. Alcohol is much worse on the voice than drugs heroin so basically she was trying to cut back on the drinking. She loved her band. She loved working with her producer..

Airplane had a Sydney Anderson and later of course grace would take her place finalized yet but Big Brother other Peter Album who co-founded it was doing most of the singing but you know it was a very democratic banned. It was part of that whole communal kind of things just like grateful dead at that time. Time so different singers sang different songs. Different members of the band. There was two guitarist. Same Andrew and James Gurley. They contributed songs to and they sang some mm songs but they were realizing that they had a strong female singer. Could bring them up a notch you know and so Janice came out and you know. She thought it was an audition but the the minute. She opened her mouth and started singing. They knew my Gosh. This woman is amazing and she had never ever sang with an electric fan before she suddenly had had to completely change her style because she had these really loud guitars behind her. They were rehearsing at this old funky carriage house. Kind of loft place with no monitors senators or anything. I mean the clubs in have monitors really and she had to be able to hear herself suddenly seeing over this glaring. They called Freak rock at the time so it was. It was a huge again another evolution musically for Janice to adapt and come up with this whole new style of singing and of course develop up this amazing stage presence that she did. Yeah I thought that was fascinating that she hadn't thought of herself at all as a rock singer up until practically that moment when she got in front of Big Brother in the holding company she really had thought of herself as a blues singer. Had done this route. CR stuff that leaned towards country but there she was is and it's sort of like she had gone to a certain point in her development but it took standing in front of that band to take her all the way to being the Janis Joplin that the world would know if yeah exactly she worked again very hard on developing this unbelievable stage presence that she had the way that she was able to connect act with. Her audiences is unparalleled. I mean I have interviewed people for the book who saw her and sixty six play at San Francisco State soon after she.

"I'm in the studio with Holly George. Warren author of Sixteen Books Most recently Janice her life and music. which is what we're going to be talking about? Today is Osso two time grammy nominee and the longtime editor of Rolling Stones Book Division and a lot of books came out of that job. He asked over forty bucks over the years from photo books Anthologies of writing from the magazine. Kazini going back to the earliest issues to all kinds of rock and roll reference books the Rolling Stone Encyclopedia Rock and roll album. Guide elsewhere. The history of rock and roll. We did it all. Aw and you wrote biographies of Alex Chilton and Gene Autry. So this is your third biography but this book Janice her life and music is is a real accomplishment I think the highest compliment. I can pay to. It is by the end. I was dreading what was coming as I was was reading the last one hundred two fifty pages and then for the first time. This is someone who died before I was born. I never mourned her until I read this book and after I finished the book I was really really sad for a while. You know. It's her life is in some ways a tragedy in some ways. Not How do you see that. Well yes I mean she. She died way too young. I came to love Janice myself working on this book and interestingly I was alive when she was around down but I was just a wee lassie living North Carolina and basically Pearl posthumous album. That came out in seventy one was the first Janice album that I got and and I didn't know that much about her. As far as her own path her own journey as a musician as an artist. I of course read some books along the way. And she created such a vivid persona this image that I bought hook line and sinker this kind of Blues Mama and this kind of this flash of talent and and energy and then poof she was gone like a comet but going back and learning about her over actually quite a few years going back to when I was out rolling stone and got got to participate in conferences of the Rock Hall of Fame About Janice I decided wow you know there's so much about her I don't know and I really want to understand. Janice the person listen but also Janice the musician because I had never really gotten a sense of that from the other books so luckily for me I got to meet people. Close goes to her her bandmates people that worked with Chet Holmes who took her to San Francisco for the first time back in sixty three before big brother and the Holding Company and I was able to go back and meet friends of hers from High School and Learn about her youth in her evolution as an artist looking to find out about music and things like that that it took her on her journey out of Port Arthur Texas so yes. I'm always sad. I still tear up sometimes when I'm reading my book myself when we lose her but the the thing about genesis is she made a lot of tough decisions and she was fearless and she knew what she was doing. She knew she was taking a lot of risks. So I really do not want her to come across as a victim in my book. I mean. We're the victims because we lost our but she made those choices and you know sadly it was an accidental overdose. That took her out when she was only twenty seven hour. Among the many things I was struck by is the extent to which Janice was pushing pushing boundaries for a young woman in any era but especially her era and it actually reminded me weirdly of ethnic Curtis's recen- in Bio of Lou Reed where you learn. How ahead of the time? He was where people in high school were just like. This guy is insane and it was in some ways very similar because these were people who were literally ahead of their time they were ready to create the next generation the next era but she was already living it although from her perspective perspective. She was a Beatnik so she was in previous era. But what surprised you. Most about how far she pushed it even by the time she was eighteen years old. Yeah it's interesting. You bring up the Lou Reed book by Anthony Curtis Because I did read that book and loved it and I thought there were some real connections and the persona of both Lou Reed and John and I mean I think Lou himself was also very much inspired by the beats early on and there was that whole idea of for Janice when she was fourteen years old she read on the road. Jack Kerouac when it was published fifty seven and his whole concept of beat being kind of beaten down you know outsider Outcast but still trying to experience life experience the dark corners of life away from that post World War Two optimistic like you know the white picket fence and everything you know the husband wife and two kids and the dog that kind of idea of life and Janice at such a young age really glommed onto the idea. The beats soon. After that she discovered the blues she discovered some lead belly records. And then after that Bessie Smith they just totally turned her around as far as what music could be now. She grew up at a time when you know the early rock and roll little. Richard Chuck Berry Fats Domino. She heard some amazing music driving around around in you know she was in the Gulf coast area of Texas and they used to call it Doing the triangle going from Port Arthur to Beaumont to orange. Just listen listen to the radio. Smoking cigarettes drinking beer. You know and she was really a fan and she was also a very very curious Korea and wanted to find more this music the lead belly and the Bessie Smith which those records were really hard to find in the nineteen fifties. So she started seeking out that kind of music but but she didn't consider herself a singer. She was born with a beautiful soprano voice that she use in the church choir and the Glee Club and school and everything but it was only after she started trying trying to work with her voice and seeing a different way with more guts and with more rough edges to it fast when she really started to find herself as a singer and she wouldn't have done that. I don't think it hadn't been for like Louis kind of going outside. The norm of what her typical Roth culture was in port. Arthur taxes axis in the nineteen fifties. There's a moment when she for the first time breaks out into the first version of that voice and it was actually imitating. Data is took off. Yes she was. I was really drawn to African American voices and she discovered a no debt or record. Now Oh Donna was trained. I think she was even an opera singer like like Janice she could sing. All different kinds of Music Janice called it her kind of Mule Skinner Blues type of Sand with what Janice was drawn to but again you know this there was so much amazing music going on in that period that part of the country that I think she really glommed onto but she would actually go up to radio stations at night to try to meet the DJ and like find out about the records. And can I get some coffee and stuff like that because she was just obsessed but she thought going to be an artist. She wanted to be a painter. She was quite talented artistically but when she started singing for an audience basically by the time she enrolled at ut for awhile in Austin Texas in nineteen sixty two and started getting that feeling of the audience feedback when she sang performing with this little Combo called the waller our creek boys that really set her on her path to become a performer as well as a singer. And that's one of the things you emphasizes while an interview. She would kind of propagate gate this myth that it was all kind of an accident and she fell into it. There actually was a long period of training and studying that led her to develop her Stalin. Voice Worse yes. She was the perpetual student of music and she was still doing that. You know when she recorded Pearl in nineteen seventy. She never wanted to just kind of stay with one sound or one style of music. She was driven to continually evolve as an artist. Sing different styles of music. Different musical Kohl backing again. She tried to make it early on after she left Austin and sixty three as a blue singer doing some original. She'd already started writing writing songs herself. She learned to play on a harp. She was teaching herself guitar. And so she went out to the Coffee House scene in San Francisco. And actually I rub shoulders with the people like your Macau Conan and Jerry Garcia. Who of course later a few years later they'd all be the king and Queen of the counterculture and Haight Ashbury and all that but She did that for a while so I mean. She was constantly evolving as an artist but also working really hard to and yeah. I totally always bought her myth that she's just like all all about the field. ABC You know and just going out there and do letting it all out and just kind of almost like just kind of came out of her and that was really not the case. It was a lots and lots hardwork and effort on her part that trip to San Francisco. The first one is one of the places where I said. Wow this was an incredibly brave young woman because it was so Outside of the norm for that time and she was taking huge risks and then she did very quickly she ended up. Pretty horrifyingly ended up a very I serious speed at it with terrifying speed. Yeah Yeah it was an actually. Brian believe it or not. That was actually her. Second Time Hitchhiking The San Francisco. She I went when she was eighteen. Eighteen years old hitchhiked. She was living out in Venice. Beach trying to be a beat neck. And so she hitchhiked up to San Cisco when Kinda just hung out checked out the scene and everything and then took the bus back home to Texas but yes when she really went to try to make it. It's hard for us to imagine now because there's such infrastructure now if you want to build audience and go out and perform but here she was all alone. A young woman nowhere to live sleeping on floors sometimes slept on the floor. The Coffee House where she he performed making you know five or six dollars maybe usually pass the hat kind of things and speed was everywhere in North Beach in the summer of that period of the early sixties. And she yeah she fell into that and you know in the beginning she and some of her friends were doing it because it just like taken can pep pills which she had done in college even they were very widely available in those days and then she went from that to methamphetamine and horribly ended up injecting it so she definitely pretty much wrecked yourself at that point and by nineteen sixty five. She had really won a lot of fans with her voice but by then then she was really sidetracked by you know she was down to like eighty eight pounds and had to go back to Austin and oh I went back to Port Arthur and was kind of nursed back to health family and then eventually she ended up performing in Austin again. There's a harrowing moment. When in the early dissolution she fell into? There's a sign up at a club club. I think in San Francisco said do not under any circumstances give money to downs Joplin or something like that which is like Yikes. I mean that shows how far she went so fast and again you have to remember how old she was you know. She was still in her early twenties at this point so she was just this kid she really had for the first time in her life. All these wide open possibilities to just go out there and you'll be beat so She did that and it really scared heard her though she knew how close to death she had come and when she did go back home she totally straightened up. She actually transformed into this taxes. Axes college co ED. Commuting to Lamar Tech in Beaumont Texas wanted to be a sociology major. Fortunately for me she wrote amazing. Oh my my God. These letters that she wrote to this horrible cad conman boyfriend that she had who was supposed theon say she like seventy or eighty letters over about three or four months and they're just so self analytical they're funny they describe her life with her State of mind her family. I mean it's it's literally like I got in her memoirs something getting to read all those letters which were in like a family archive the D.. Allowed you access to know those letters. Yeah she later wrote home to her family a lot when she ran off again and sixty six. She told her parents. She was going to Austin for the weekend. She really moved back to San Francisco so of course they were horrified fight because they thought she was going to end up like she had the first time and so she wrote home a lot of ladder so yes the family shared those with me. These letters thank goodness. The guy the one good thing about him being such a con man horrible guy was that he sold the letters so I was able to find lots of them through some dealers who handle rare manuscripts scripts and letters who very kindly gave me scans to read. I found some on the Internet from other auction houses. Who have them up for sale? And I think the family we had a couple that they had actually purchased over the years so I was able to track down a lot of them and also she wrote letters to some of girlfriends that I was able to track down so luckily luckily she left this amazing paper trail. You had really strikes me that It's going to be a lot harder..

"janis" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Holly George Warren Welcome back to fresh air thanks so much for having me again so what are you why do you and so many others consider Janice Joplin the first woman Rockstar and I presume when we say Rockstar were eliminating like rock and Roll we're we're eliminating like girl groups we're talking about like rock rock yes Janice Joplin broke down a lot of barriers to become the woman that she was in the nineteen sixties when at that point in time there weren't too many women taking center stage not only onstage in the recording studio but even as as far as a point of media attention and Janice created this incredible image that went along I'm with her amazing vocal ability her talent and also her live performance which was very very different than most of the women that came before for people who haven't seen her live or on film or video how is her live performance different what may Janice really different as a live performer is she connected with her audiences by tapping into her deepest feelings and there was this authenticity that came across she wasn't just standing up there singing she was basically emptying out her gods through that amazing voice of hers and touching her audience members like they had never been touched before I've talked to people who saw her back in nineteen sixty six sixty seven and they talk about it as if it was yesterday especially women I think because she was able to express deep down emotions shame disappointments hurts that I think a lot of women her audience couldn't express themselves and Janice was not only just singing to them she was singing for the and I think that kind of deep connection was very very unique that time she's very sexual onstage but it wasn't in the way that you would imagine she wasn't wearing like sexy clothes she wasn't like revealing a lot of her body like onstage so what was it about her that had so much kind of sexual energy in her performances you can look to major influences that Janice had that think affected her sexuality and the way she expressed it on stage one was of course the Great Bessie Smith whose lyrics Janice Newbie heart she started out singing bessie Smith songs way before we ever saw her these images of her with big brother and the holding company she started performing Bessie Smith songs around nineteen sixty three and those kind of lyrics of sexuality of Sexual Longing Sexual Betrayal those very much informed genesis own songwriting and the songs that she chose to sing the other major influence was Otis redding she was a huge fan until the day she died and she got to see him perform live three nights in a row at the fillmore back in nineteen sixty six and it tran is formed her because he was very sexual performer and he was able to emit this heat on stage that Janice herself is able to do through her own way of manifesting these feelings that she had while seeing this these songs and I mean Janice self control she compared singing onstage to having an orgasm she blew some journalists minds when she used that expression but you it was a very sexual experience for her and the world of Rock in the late sixties was very much a a male dominated world in the radio and in the Music World do you think she faced a lot of sexism when she was a Mer in spite of on her way to stardom or after she reached it Janice was one of the boys she considered herself one of the boys and she kind of was outside that gender role playing the time that was pretty much dominant in our culture but that she was a public figure the press would of course be amazed by her vocals and critics would be talking about what a great singer she was they were often seeking out her body parts and talking about her physical appearance in a way that of course you know male singers rock singers really not getting that kind of Attention from the press also she really had to bus down barriers to be able to have control to do what she wanted to do because she loved being in Big Brother and the Holding Company for example the band with whom she catapulted to fame name but she was such a restless of spirit as far as a musician goes she wanted to keep it exploring different sounds different kinds of music and when she did that it was really awful in that the boys club of music critics just kind of raked over the coals for dropping her band and going off on her own and they hard to say she was selling out and going Showbiz and I don't think other artists like Eric Clapton who left and plenty of bands to try different Sam sounds I don't think they got that kind of personal attack that Janna Scott Jess Joplin's music idols include bessie Smith Than Big Mama Thornton other blues and rhythm and blues singers but she was born in Texas in Port Arthur Texas at a time when it was still segregated how is she exposed to black music and how did she find records that she might not have heard on the radio because Janez came of age in the mid fifties fortunately in that golden age of early rock and roll she went nuts over Chuck Berry Little Richard There was some great records that she could listen to driving around they used to call it doing the triangle where she lived port Arthur Texas they would just drive every night from Port Arthur to Beaumont to Orange Texas listening to the radio also Beaumont had some great or NBC station that played black music which Janice loved I mean the great ivory Joe Hunter was from Beaumont so she was fortunately exposed to music like that on the radio and then she discovered lead belly and lead belly just changed her head around the lyrics the sound of his voice you know Janice took her own vocals for granted until she discovered lead belly she just thought Oh anybody can sing soprano like you know she sang in the Church Choir Glee Club but when she heard lead bill elise force she wanted to experiment with roughing up her sound and making it more raw and she was a mimic she could you know she discovered Odeta who had kind of the round tones and she started trying to sing like Oh data on her records but she was mostly inspired by lead belly until she discovered of course betsy Smith and then that was all she wrote one of Janis Joplin's most famous recordings is ball and chain and that was a cover a song that was written by originally recorded by big Mama Thornton so what's the story behind how Janice Joplin I heard that song or how someone in her band I hear that song and how she decided to record it it is so poetic that genesis breaks through song would be written by Big Mama Thornton Ball and chain because as a teenager of course who like many who saw Elvis on Sullivan show Janice loved Elvis is loved hound dog but then she went to the length and we don't even know how she did it but somehow she found big Mama Thornton's original version on of Duke records out of nearby Houston Texas of Hound dog which was very different from Elvis's it was it had a lot more heat to it and fast forward what ten years later nine hundred sixty six or so janice was with big brother and the holding company big Mama Lo and behold was living in the bay area performing at a Little Club so Janice and her bandmates went down to see her perform and she does this self penned Song Ball and chain blown away Janice started writing down the lyrics to the song on a piece of paper they're sitting in the club they went backstage got to meet Big Mama and literally ask for permission for them to start covering that song and she said sure as long as you don't mess it up you know and They did gets the drummer used to say they big brother rised the song so I think big Mama Thornton and Janice Joplin recorded Boylan chain at about the same time be cuss if I'm not mistaken one Janice heard big Mama Thornton Performance Thornton hadn't recorded the song yet that's correct is not available on record and win it I think I did come out it was on a very tiny label I mean at this point big Mama Thornton had her star had kind of fallen as far as the record industry has so the version that most people heard became the version that big brother and the Holding Company did at the Monterey Pop festival in June of nineteen sixty seven which was really their breakthrough performance but they had started doing that song I guess they'd been on it for probably about eight or nine months before they did it at Monterey pop in it kind of gradually evolved as they did it you can hear it on some bootlegs and things like that and here well you know a little bit different but Janice just dug into the phrasing of that song the they slowed way down and it just had this heavy intensity to it that was the perfect vehicle for genesis vocal abilities and also her ability to tax into those deep emotions and let them come through her voice so I thought it'd be interesting to hear the Big Mama Thornton Recording and Janice Joplin recording back to back so we can hear something of you know what influence Janice Joplin and how she made it her own so here's Big Mama Thornton followed by Janice Joplin and both of these recordings we're made in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight girl.

They had two young sons to successful careers and they just disclosed and a five hundred thousand dollar home when bill disappeared. Melanie told their friends that they had fought on the night when they closed on their new home bill bill had physically attacked her and walked out telling her he was done with her buildings seem like the type of guy who would hit his wife and lead his children behind but Melanie insisted that he had hit her and walked out on his family. She even went to court and took out a restraining order against bill as the days passed did no one heard from bill. Melanie appeared to be moving on with her life without him but bills family and friends were worried bill had been a gambler may get pissed off the wrong people then a bizarre story got everyone's attention. I A Kenneth Cole suitcase was found in Virginia Beach and it contained aimed a pair of bloodless male human legs that had been severed at the knees one week later Virginia Beach Police recovered a second suitcase that was part of the same in Kenneth Cole set it held a five pound weight black trash bags and more human remains this time it was a man's head in torso but here this man was and when he had been killed were still unknown then the third last suitcase was recovered within two weeks it contains the man's hips and thighs. Virginia Beach Police launched an extensive investigation to identify the victim and identified him as Bill McGuire join us at the quiet in today for a very haunting case that became known as the suitcase murder well respected fertility nurse Melanie he McGuire was accused of her husband's murder and dismemberment and she faced life in prison. Although her attorney would argue her innocence a complex unraveling reveling of the facts would reveal a twisted murder plot which grew from infidelity greed and hate New Jersey case means new New Jersey near yeah figured I'm assuming she killed him in New Jersey. That's the belief yes. She didn't dump his body parts in New Jersey. I don't think now aw but the killing was done so I picked a beer called head high which is brewed by Kane Brewing Company in Ocean New Jersey Far Southern Jersey assist the shore head high is an American. It A in at six point six percent alcohol by volume pretty nice beer hazy orange colour. You're a whitehead some pretty lace aroma of citrus and pine. We have a citrus taste upfront grapefruit and tangerine primarily then some pine nine overlaps and Caramel Mo- nicely hop beer good bitterness the nice beer more vo west coast. IPA TRY IT. That sounds Cilicia. I love that kind of beer. This is your Beer Jill. Yes okay. Let's open that up right away. All right lead the way why down to the quiet end in you can begin our story. Bill McGuire was born in nineteen sixty four in river edge. New Jersey the two older sisters his father worked as a pressman for the New York. Times and his mother stayed home with kids. A billy was the baby of the family family. He got a lot of attention. Here's a cute but very rambunctious kid now when he was four years old his parents divorced bill's mother had to take a job to support the children so she worked the night shift wild bill's oldest sister. Cindy babysat her siblings the Mon- Work Six nights a week so Sunday began to feel like she was a second mother to Bill Leeann. I think bill really looked at her that way even as an adult or you're she had a very maternal influence on his life and when bill was twelve his sister. Cindy moved out and married a guy named bill. Gosh he was an older man who was a pharmacist first and then bills other sister. Nancy moved out as well. Their parents had divorced and remarried a few times so it was very unstable. Environment Sir remarried controller yes back and forth while and Nancy would later accused their father of sexually abusing her too so there's a lot going on in the home sounds work so bill went to Catholic school and he was a decent B. Student. He was quite outgoing and a lot of friends when he was just fifteen ran ran away from home and went to live with Cindy and her husband and he did live with them for a while but eventually left after not following all of her household rules because Cindy was strict then after that he went to his sister Nancy but she didn't have room for him so for awhile bill lived with his high school coach and then he lived with the family of one of his best friends so this is kind of a hard scrabble life he had in his teens assurances. Just been a Roman around yeah. Yeah doesn't have any stability really not much now and we're not really sure what was going on in the home that he felt like he had to run away but it was probably tumultuous between the parents. I mean just the fact that they were together the not together then together the not together. I mean that's that's in stable ripple enough her unstable enough by itself. Yes absolutely so bill was living with his friend. Lenny and his parents and Lenny's twelve year old sister Marcie Darcy got a really big crush on bill so after graduating in nineteen eighty two bill joined the navy thought it would give him some direction in life leaving both his high school girlfriend behind and young Marcy. He broke two hearts when he left the navy bill made friends with a guy named Joe Rice Ace. He was another recruit who was three years older at first. Joe Thought that bill was kind of obnoxious because he was always showing off and telling jokes but then the two men eventually became close friends and bill was very well dressed and bought himself a Camaro which he shouldn't have been able to afford he would admit to Joe that he was opening up checking accounts in fake names and writing bad checks in order to finance the lifestyle that he wanted to live Marino. I got certain needs in my life. I'm just gonNA write checks. I think that's the way he looked at it and remember this is a guy who didn't have much guidance right and he he was really taken with having things that he had had growing up so not to make excuses because it really wasn't a good thing to do of course of course yeah but now that's what he did so in nineteen eighty five. I guess he's been in the service for about three years at this point bill's girlfriend from back home. Lisa flew down in Norfolk to Sam on a weekend. Leave a few months later bill visit Lisa in Vernon New Jersey but their relationship came to an end over well he was in New Jersey Bill. Marcy asked her out on a date and then he and Marcie gradually became a couple and kept in touch with pitcher yes so after Joe Rice married his girlfriend he told bill about how much more money would be making his naval marriage benefits his income nearly doubled after near his girlfriend and then it wasn't too long after that when bill decided to ask Marcie Mary him so a lot of people thought bill just did that to make more money. Let's the impression absolutely his buddies. Tahoe are almost doubled my income so bill's Franken. That's brewing right. We'll marcy was younger though she just graduated from high school but she was very very taken with bill and she accepted did his proposal and she moved down to Virginia to live with bill and to go to College Marsin Bill secretly married in a civil ceremony and then they moved into into a one bedroom apartment together nineteen ninety bill left the navy after earning his associate's degree from tidewater Community College Bill Dylan Marcy Move to Edison New Jersey and he started attending rutgers university where he was going to study pharmacology bill and Marcy moved into an apartment and both took jobs in local restaurants to pay the bills but bill is unhappy then he wanted to split up nineteen ninety two he left. Marcy surprised her. I guess pretty much broker heart 'cause the next two years. She tried to win him back but bill never looked back at Marcy. Who's WHO's dating new women again almost right away after the break-up yeah he had already really checked out of the marriage and then in the summer of nineteen ninety four for a friend of bills introduced him to Melanie slate. The two were attracted to each other and they seem to have a lot in common. They seem to really make a good match. Watch so a little bit about Melanie. Melanie Lynn slate was born in nineteen seventy two in Ridgewood New Jersey. Her father left her mother. When Melanie Melanie was still a baby and then he died a few years later from cancer. Melanie's mother Linda moved back into her appearance on with her daughter and Melanie's Janis Aunts and grandmother helped to raise her her mother. Linda can you to her secretarial job in Manhattan and that's where she began having an affair with her boss Michael Caporetto and that would last for years and Years Melanie grew up beside Michael Cap narrows son Michael Junior and and when Captain Aero finally left his wife he and his son moved in with Linda Melanie but it certainly wasn't the ideal childhood. Her doesn't sound black. Does it now so the kids would go along with Lyndon Michael when they went to Atlantic City Michael Junior and Melanie. You were usually left alone in hotel. Rooms are pretty lengthy times while appearance gambled Michael Senior was such a high stakes gambler learn they were often given comte hotel suites in room service for the children. SA- gambling really can be a serious addiction. WHOA course I've never never really known anyone that has it by Sir with sound of surprise well after I read about this I looked into some other issues with that and children and there is a problem in Atlantic City and Las Vegas of people just Kinda dumping their kids and running off to gamble for days at a time were very often read stories about the type of thing apparent has come the gamble and just dump the kids somewhere. You're gives them a few dollars. Say go under around how fine the gamble one. I think forget about their kids. They get so involved in it because there have been instances was reading about where children have been molested or even kidnapped napped. You know little girls using the restroom in a casino by themselves ECORSE. That's not why s- some horrible things have happened because of this so the only thing I can think is it must be a very strong addiction like drugs for people to leave their kids like that sure immune. A lot of these people are normally holly good parents but this is how Michael and Melanie grew up with a lot of that now even though their parents had some money and they were comps suites they were still abandoned on their own so they became very self sufficient these kids. I guess that's the good part about it. Melanie was really an excellent student and issue reached her teens. She was a beautiful girl. She had long wavy brown hair and a petite figure. She became very self confident and was very flirtatious with the boys at school. Some of the other girls disliked her but melanie had an outward kind.

Inside Apple's big September event
"Guess apple had some sort of Shindig on Tuesday by innovation. Only there were a few people said okay. Hey if you're going to have an invitation that says by innovation you best innovate Devendra now first of all. You probably already ready have an iphone but you can't say it because I don't have it but I have touched them and they're very nice. Oh Oh you can say that a video phone yes the iphone eleven was a weird it was kind of a weird event for apple I had so much to talk about that they had had to jam it and they didn't start with their traditional owed to money-making and the stores they kicked they kicked right into Apple Arcade Plus TV plus and then they I went to the watch by the time they got the IPHONE. which I thought was going to be the story of the hour the only announced one the iphone eleven? I said the most successful iphone this year was was the iphone ten are here's its successor the iphone eleven now with two lenses and I thought well this is interesting the the big I think the big story there was the price which is fifty bucks less than the iphone ten are at six ninety nine and then they said Oh oh and by the way there are some other phones the iphone pro eleven pro and the iphone eleven flashbacks. I'm sorry PROMEX rollbacks. I say Flex 'cause I can't remember the all the all y'all have slow fee. There's a lump they all have slow fees SLO MO cell. Oh fees so these this is apples now in a tick talk talk situation. Aren't they six. They used to be every other year would be an asset and kind of the same form factor but a little bit improved and then a big improvement. The next year like the ten was a big improvement at the tennis was a talk and this is really a talk to the talk isn't it. I think it Kinda that speaks to like how a smartphone upgrade cycles are working now to like. Most people keep their two or three years. Here's it kind of makes sense. There's no point like killing yourself to bring something new and groundbreaking out every two years when you can kind of coast on how people actually buy if he's phones and take some more time with that hardware so yeah. I'm not surprised at this. Year's phones aren't too revolutionary. It is nice having an extra lens across the line. The three lenses the pros that's GonNa be really interesting. they really cleaned up the phone names to cause the ten are and the tennis. Those were all really dumb because there's a real L. numeral so it looks like it's just it was a mess so eleven nice and clean. I've eleven pro macbook MAC pro. It's all good and I think we're all expecting expecting the big big upgrade to be next year's when we're GONNA see five eight most likely the twenty twenty iphones but is there such a thing Georgia as a professional yeah you know professional for the phone that you have in your pocket better than but you know no understand automatic and a MAC pro I understand the macbook pro or even an IPAD and IPAD probe right yeah that's starting to stretch it on more for pros just easy and quick and it makes you feel a little bit more elite so exactly now but they need something short and snappy and easy and people understand that you're getting a little bit more for it. I think the thing for me makes it pro as someone who spends like literally all day on your phone because the light listening need to podcasts or making software making guys is like I just need more battery life and I think the fact that this year apple finally put more more battery in the back of these things for be like having that extra life is what makes it pro. It's more matters a lot yeah. If you make make a huge case so now let me ask because I wasn't clear. Is this five the iphone pro maxing has five hours more battery life than what the tennis Max like like their equipment so it is it is head to head. It is more but we don't lot five hours. Yeah we do know that the new display they're saying I think the new ole is fifteen percent more efficient and the new processor is likely more efficient so these this is where the battery life is coming from probably I've also been hearing from a lot of people have installed. IOS Thirteen eighteen the public Beta and thirteen one. That's much more efficient. They're better battery life so straight on all three fronts apple. The new processor is the a thirteen bionic. Is that right beliefs. Oh yeah sorry so I think that's the that's the other annoying thing by the way with the pro WPRO designation last year the ten are the tennis phones had the exact same processor yes and that was a big price difference now. It's like iphone eleven basic iphone pro still with the same processor yeah and that's I don't know I kind of wish there was a little more of a bump. They're just really earned that pro title straight now where you have the extra camera so you have the alleged really nice refreshments screens and the kind of slick not slick but like the Matt Glass back and the stainless steel construction. That's Cardinal. You're you're getting. That's surgical stainless. Surgically yes grave thought was really weird because like I'm not going to perform an open heart surgery with my phone. I could see that in a scalpel but a phone. I don't know yeah I think for me. The most frustrating thing about the whole eleven eleven eleven Brent Levin Peru Max is as you can see here. They ship the case your head of the actual I hate that you get a box from a I go oh my would. It's just the flipping case you really you you really all in an apple because you bet the apple clear case which is forty dollars and as far as I could tell this identical these seven ninety nine one. I bought surgical. Oh break clear you're paying for but you know it will fit just right so that's probably important okay so so the so the this is a seven nanometer processor. This is actually I think apple deserves more credit for its custom processors than they're getting This looked looked like and it was interesting because they brought somebody for the first time I can ever remember from the processor group up on stage. Oh yeah it was like an out for a second there. It was like Whoa half billion transistors or something. It's just it's mind boggling what they're doing. I think they're my guess is they're highlighting these guys because they're eventually going to be making processors processors for the entire kit right all the way all the way up to the computers I think if we're we're seeing snapdragon laptops already and windows machines running on Snapdragon so so they they are kind of setting the stage it just kind of make sense like oh but by next year if we see a Mac book powered by the a fourteen or whatever we wouldn't be too surprised. I guess I I do have to say that increase battery life and it's across the line although five hours is the longest promex if that's accurate and we won't know until I guess I'm going to guess that at places like in Gadget and I'm more have embargoed units that they'll report on it. I'm GonNa Guess Wednesday usually a few days before they ship they get the the reviews started coming out and all the main stream publications so we won't really know and then Friday I fix it will won't be in Australia and they will get at midnight. They will get their iphone. Take it apart immediately so we'll then know how much battery we'll know a little bit more about the processor the cameras and all that stuff but I you know I think if they really get literally get five hours more. That's huge. That's thirty forty percent. That's a big difference Prince. It's a big deal like I don't know if it's enough to upgrade from tennis models if you have one of those battery life on an iphone interest. That's what you do with your phone right. It's nice not to have to find a place to charge your phone so if you're using it all the time this may be worth it. I think it's extremely carry one of those lovely. You know hunchback kind of battery cases on the back so that's curry the ugly I carry I currently they have the the the tennis Max with the battery case a while and it is like carrying a brick eight a battery so one one of the the these little on Friday Friday coincidentally happens to be my birthday's could be like nice birthday on the planet because going and picking those guys up and then getting the pipe while I was getting the pipes and out of the pocket and be Very Brett Cavenaugh story from college you don't you don't WanNa share that one too soon way you too soon so that's an example of that because johnny is left but the Johnny Ivy era. It's always he's been center center center. Center Center apple didn't say thinner once they said better battery life Hallelujah heavier they are data you know after the Ben Gate I think they went. You know what thinner is probably not better. I think that he believes enough panic stricken. Let's make sure it's actually better uh-huh enough. Every Olympics are getting added weight because of this the surgical grade steel and believe new display like I so from just suspects alone the T. V. Ten Perot Max or the eleven pro Max ways half a pound. This is the heaviest iphone we've already made yeah I feel I feel like they were waiting between that and the the new keyboards on the new macbook prayers I feel like they would just literally like waiting. Thank God Butterfly Keyboard the keyboard at an extra little bit way on that like thank God Janis no hair to to say I can't be the case but still does feel like that doesn't Camp I mean he just left a jeff before he latte has been on the works. it wasn't a quick fix unless there was a skunkworks in the back of the campus when when Johnny beliefs were gonNA show this keyboard yeah the reports were they. He basically checked out for the past couple of years yeah so who knows like how now yeah yeah. I hope you're right. We'll Harris. I do hope there is a new and by the way I think it's pretty clear because apple only announced the low end ipad the three twenty nine version and with the giant they look out they giant vessels the home button a fingerprint reader they only announced that which means we know thanks to the the European database that there are at least two more models coming. I think that I saw that so. There's gotTA B. and they're gonNa we know there's a MAC pro coming this year if you can afford it and we know that so we see I think there's going to be October event with all of these things right that makes sense yeah yeah so yeah I would say it disappointed like on the back to sort of entry level ipad things
Dave Bautista, Keita And Makita discussed on The Frame
"They were coming out a week after Spiderman far from home and a week before lion king I mean could we have like one shot at it. You know that weekend doesn't go well for gone forever. That's not Camille Janis only problem. It is new movie stupor. He plays an uber driver who picks up a nightmare passenger. Who's got a gun? That's Today on the frame weekend. Plus for filmmaker Lewan diverse casting is key even if it surprises surprises movie goers type of American lead that we're used to but that's part of it you know people need to get used to these faces as being part of the faces of America re talk too long about her new movie the farewell and we'll say hello to the LUBEC sister's piano duo from Paris who wowed the crowd at the Hollywood bowl this week. It's the frame weekend from the Broadcast Center at K._P._C._C. John Horn stay with us. I'm John Horn and this is the frame weekend on this show we talked with creative people about how and why they do what they do and about how their art is shaped by the wider world a little later today. We're going to find out why Tuesday nights are taking off in downtown L. as little Tokyo but I this you know there's a sense that certain movies theatre movies and certain movies are not theater movies. I think comedy's our theater movies to Oh. Actor and screenwriter male Nanjiani hopes that audiences agree he's going for big laughs and his new dark comedy. It's called Stupor the film just open this weekend. It's an action packed buddy cop flick with with a twist Nanjiani stars as an uber driver and he picks up a total nightmare of a passenger and out of control policeman played by Dave Bautista. He's losing his eyesight and he's got a gun. AFTER JANIS 2017 seventeen breakout film the big sick he was looking for an entirely different kind of role for a follow up so when he came across the script for Stupor he thought he'd found one as long as he could help tweak the script a bit genuine motto of the L._A.. L._A.. Times was my co host for the frames recent summer movie special and Nanjiani was one of our guests we started out by asking him to explain the premise. That's driving the stupor storyline. An Uber driver gets kidnapped by a COP and forced go on an adventure to catch a murderous drug dealer and the cop can't see because he just got leasing just got Leszek. That's the thing I don't know why it's not in the trailers. The cop just got laid sick and so there's like over the course of the whole movie. He's got this chart that he's staring at waiting for it to get on blurry so I'm curious how this came about. Were you looking for something like this. After the big sick I sort of had a little bit of paralysis about what to do next ext so I decided that the only way I wouldn't put too much pressure on myself was to do something completely different that nobody could compare it to the big sick right and so I kind of was I want to do like a big studio action comedy type movie so then descript came in and I read it and I thought it was really fun and funny by was like if I want to do like an action comedy with guns and all this stuff there has to be a reason for it to exist like it conscious be that it's entertaining and so I actually talked to to Fox a bunch about it and was like hey. I think there's some like underlying themes in this movie that I think we should really bring up to the surface and if you guys are willing to do that then I think this could be a cool thing to do. We'd be able to talk about things you don't normally see in like a big action movie like this. That seems like such a guy movie toxic masculinity in men talking about their feeling exactly exactly I was like if we're doing a movie in twenty nineteen about out angry dudes with guns. We have to talk about that. I feel like we're obviously in a narrow where you know. Masculinity is under the microscope and we're really sort of figuring out. Most of the world's problems come from men who can't feel their feelings so it was like I think this is a great rate way to talk about that stuff in a movie. That's traditionally a very like man movie and for people who don't know what's tuber means what does to remain Camille so my character's name is Stu and Driving Uber so my boss calls Me Stupor to make doc fund me and it really gets under by skin cancel. It affects my rating icon trouble for stars lose this job. ooh Do right now that that you for this stupid you can stop calling me that he really loves you. I think that's it's a really fun too because we were like let's take all the male types and reconstructive so this guy is sort of the you know the petty tyrant type of guy and we do a scene where we deconstruct that where he's just like kind of lonely and feels bad and insecure about himself on you have a whole seen in a male strip club. Yes exactly Steve. How is the name of the guy that I talked to a bunch and it's funny? He's like Hillary Clinton Tattoo. She was up twelve points in August. We just wanted to take a a bunch of different types of men and sort of deconstruct. All of the stripper is talking about being honest with your feelings and you know not hiding. You need to tell her you feel a relationship cannot thrive without honest and you know he's been body shamed by his his boss for being like you know one percent body fat as opposed to point five right right. He looks great by the way I'll tell you I felt very inadequate in that locker room because it's like Ted of the most gorgeous hunks and then me like I notice I watched this movie a bunch of different audiences. My posture is so much worse in that scene than any other scene in the movie the match up of you and Dave Batista his persona has his outward appearance appearance like it it lends itself to a deeper deconstruction along those lines. That's what's interesting about him is that he looks like such a brute. You know he's so big and he's looks like a scary guy but he's the sweetest most sincere man have truly ever met he he is completely in touch with his emotions. In a way are characters in the movie are Kinda swapped. He's the one who's really comfortable being sincere and crying and really talking about his feelings whereas I was the one who was really cut off for myself for a long time and in the last four or five years I've been sort of trying to do the work of getting in touch with my feelings and feeling comfortable expressing something other than anger anger you know what is that about. I mean is that about things that you think you can do. Through acting where you can start understanding yourself better yeah I mean honestly was I started taking acting classes like a year before the big sick because I knew that had got to be able to access parts of myself that hadn't been able to access an taking acting classes. It's Kinda was like therapy. I realized that for years I didn't know how I was feeling why was angry about stuff and so in doing doing acting work for the big sick I realized like Oh. There's a lot of stuff going on inside me that I thought was not good to feel and so after the big continued doing that work on myself like I cry it almost every movie movie now and I went like fifteen years without crying at all. When this movie came along? I was like well. I think this could be an interesting way to talk about some of the things that I've had to deal with on my own when I was sort of talking to Fox about this. I don't want to take credit for this movie in any way. All that stuff was in there but I was like I see these characters as one needs to get angry and one needs to cry. So how do you do that and make what is a summer movie with like you know. I won't say car chases but there's some car action. There's a ton of violence. There's a lot of like what we would see in a big action movie. How do you make sure that that is responsible as well that you're not just kind of random? gunplay people are just getting mowed down because that's what you have to do a summer movie I mean. That's tricky right. That's tricky so it is a shooting movie. It is people with guns. It is it is car chases. Those things happen in movie and that's the language of this type of cinema but I but I was like my cocker should be anti doc. I was very adamant. I was like fire. Hold a gun in this movie. I don't want to feel cool or good about it. The only time I fire is once into the air when we went to do the poster shoot for the movie. The concept was both of us holding guns and I was like I'm not going to hold a gun. That's completely not what this character is so I'm honestly not trying to take a big stand against guns or anything. Obviously you see I think gun control is very important but you know Dave has a lot of guns and he's a very responsible gun owner and he's very comfortable around guns. I'm not comfortable around counts I wanted. I thought that that perspective should be in their drive. I'm sue how do you do can get you some bottled waters and Canadian chocolate. It was one of those things where I thought was getting five bars Amazon but I ended Koreatown no rea- town now hold on. I'm going to bang a UEY Hero Quick Doc. No don't got it. It's clear that uber was a willing participant in this movie I mean they are all over the film and yet they're these jokes about the driver like Oh my God he took the right turn. It's now four minutes two minutes. How much freedom did you have to actually make fun of ride? Sharing Services and Uber particular first of all did not pay us any money for those people think this is like an ATF ruber. I'd be like this is a terrible herbal admiral the driver get kidnapped. How is this a positive thing for Uber? They wanted to make sure that the APP was used correctly. That was there. They wanted to make sure that that technically everything we were doing in the movie would have happened that way in real life they weren't too concerned about US making fun of Uber like they were kind of cool with that but they wanted to make sure that it was an accurate portrayal Nanjiani co stars in Stupor with Dave Bautista. It's in theaters now. You're listening to the frame weekend. I'm John. Do you know what if Akita is no well. A lot of people don't and a lot of future generations won't because it's almost extinct the vikings are a casualty of fishing nets in the Sea of Cortes off Baja California. The Nets are there to capture another species of marine marine animal the Totowa by the Documentary Sea of shadows examines not only the rapid eradication of Akita but also the nearly intractable plight of local fishermen. We sat down with the film's director Richard Laud Connie at at the Sundance Film Festival where see shadows premiered and he started by telling us more about this small porpoise like mammal. The Makita is the smallest waylon earth. It looks like it's very cute. It looks like a cross between a pond the baron dolphin there's so few left after them so the first mammal that may go extinct in a decade when we started there were less than thirty left now. We believe there's less than fifteen left so they're really declining fast but DEV akitas just a symbol for a much bigger story which is that the drug cartels tells the Mexican cartels in a Chinese mafia based in Tijuana are attacking this habitat of the Makita because they're looking for something else that cocaine of the C- the Toba and they liked that so much because the swim bladder ladder of this fish can fetch up to one hundred thousand dollars in China so they discovered it as an alternative to the drug trade so this is why story so big and dangerous because they're attacking a notion that Jacques Cousteau called the aquarium of the world and they are destroying it just to get this swim ladder and nobody was looking like when we did the IRA game the elephant crisis was known and it was a big deal and you know everyone loves elephants. This one was a silent war that no one knew about but it was so deadly because tens and hundreds of thousands of animals being killed in slaughtered and I was five hour south of Los Angeles Richard when I think about the challenges in making this movie obviously the first one is the by Keita. They're very few they're hard to find and there's certainly hard to document and then you're working in an area where there are people who don't want you to document what's happening and they don't want you interfering in their business and those people are powerful and they have guns so what were the biggest challenges is for you in trying to document what was going on outside of San Filippo. The Beach Chattan starts with that. Do you need a lot of money to make a film like that because Justice Security that goes into keeping us all safe because every day that we spend there we were noticed more and more and we try to pretend to be like a natural history kind of film team just doing a film on wildlife right but they were wondering why are they on the sea shepherd ship which is fighting the cartels house and why are they so interested in what's going on here so yes. It became the most dangerous film I've ever done. I set that as well. When did the every game they started sending us more clear messages that they do know who we are and especially the really bad guy? <hes> Oscar Para started to <hes>. Let us know by sending us a messenger saying. Why don't you interview me but we were like Oh? We're not going to do that because he had actually just murdered soldier in some Philippa a few weeks back caught on videotape too caught on videotape and we thought it could be a trap. There's a moment in the film where you were filming. If I keep that is in distress and to watch what is happening to this Keita's your cameras are rolling and the marine biologists who are trying to care for it is unbelievably difficult to watch because this is an animal. That's not only almost extinct it is in some ways kind of anthropomorphic and it's a it's an animal that has almost kind of human qualities in its face. Can you talk about without revealing what happens in the scene what was like to film that sequence where you see this Keita who is struggling to stay alive you know it took five weeks of us being out there on fifteen boats with ninety scientists who we're the best in the world to try to find them. You know for us. It was this journey this rollercoaster ride of emotions of being with a scientists looking for this animal which they wanted to rescue they wanted to extract all of Akitas and put them into a safe zone so they can stay alive because the thousands of ghost nets were going into catch to our killing everything they're like walls of death but yeah being close to that Makita that after five weeks was caught was was incredible. It was the first time Akita was even filmed like we were the first film team ever ever to film this animal in its entirety that was like Oh my God but then also watching it struggle with captivity that was emotional like you cannot believe it was tears of joy I to actually sleep find one bring it to safety but then also watching how it was struggling it was <hes> big rollercoaster for US emotionally direct KITA. There's maybe a dozen of them left. What would you say to people who say what differences the Fakih to make to the world? You know <hes> we have a responsibility I think to care into not look away and this story is remarkable because it is a small story but it's a small story that you find over and over again across the world. I want everyone to start looking at this and say like this can't happen like I can't allow this. I'm angry. I want to inspire especially the young people like our our hero Jack Drawn to these twenty one and he's risking his life every day and he's out there facing poachers and he's I angry and he's not ready to accept so he's fighting and to show here is like that I think it is very inspiring and empowering for young people who I think do

"Website, healthy children dot org. There's tips for, you know, alternatives timeouts, you know, other consequences for behavior. But what should the parent do that just has that one moment? This isn't a regular thing. This isn't you know, every Tuesday, if they don't like Janis report guard, you know, turn around and you get a spanking. This is maybe something that just happens because they lose it. What should you do if you have spank your child, and you regret it? If you have spent your child, and you regret, it, you can certainly apologize. The child. Explain how you were feeling and plan not to do that again all of us have moments when we feel ourselves getting angry, and irrational frustrated, and that's the time. What do you take a big breath? Tell the child to go to their room go to the corner. Do something out of my sight. And then calm yourself down for a minute. But we talk about the emotional effect. There's the physical effect that it creates a child who's actually going to be more aggressive down the road. But is it true that it also affects a child's brain? And way of thinking, you know, in the twenty first century now that we have ways of looking inside a child's growing brand on using cans and things like that. We know how great appreciation of how child's experienced termines, how their brain grows. And there was a a couple of recent studies that. Show that children whose parents relied on corporal punishment. Their brains at a smaller part of the brain called the prefrontal cortex than other children who weren't spanked. And it turns out that this region is where some of the self regulation that we that we all have to control their own behavior occurs. So studies are relatively small, but they're convincing because there's so many other studies that have shown changes in children's brain growth as a result of things like child abuse and other issues, so we find it extremely concerning. This banking child may lead to permanent changes in their brain. Would you go as far as calling regular corporal punishment spanking or a ruler that was known in the house as a going to be the punishment or a paddle? Would you go as far as saying right now that that is child abuse? I don't think. So I think that I would love to live in a world where that was the worst thing that happened to children. But I think that what we would like to do is so many parents come to us for advice on how to help children how to help them with children's problematic behavior, and we can offer them. Lots of good advice and counsel them not to spank children for parents who need more help than most communities have family resource centers, where parenting classes, and pediatricians no with those resources are.
