Glenn Close, 'Hillbilly Elegy'
"Hi everybody. I'm peter travers. This is popcorn What's happening at the movies and my guest today. is glenn. close one of the best actors on this planet. You heard it from me and you heard from everybody else. That caesar in anything you people need to get now busy on netflix. And watch glenn. In hillbilly jay where her talent is shining on its highest being. So congratulations to you. God thank you peter. Thank you very much. And i'm looking at you and when i see you and you'll be billy algae i say who the hell is that. What about this transformation that you make to play this character. Well you know. It started. When i when i knew i was going to do memo is started with. I can't be distracted by my own face. I can't you know if i think the audience sees my face. I'll be very distracted by that though. I called matthew mongol reading. Oh genius makeup artist. Special effects makeup in mossy oak own views is done my wigs for practically my entire career and they had done also janet mcteer ni- and albert and matthew came up from texas where he's kind of semi retired when i still had a house out you know in westchester and we sat in my kitchen and he experimented with with shapes because it was really amazing. How just a very slight alteration of its shape of your nose for example can take your own face away so It was that and also mammal in life had big ears so he added you know size of my ears in my ear lobes. In the night. I curl my hair and made it all frizzy and ron came over because he just lives over the border in connecticut and he was kind of he was convinced because it i of course you know you worry about the time taken in the chair in the morning with any kind of percents but this was actually you know just slight difference of the nose and ears in it. I i was reading an hour every day But that was the beginning. And i we were given a portrait of mammoth fabulous portrait for slightly looking up with the big glasses and her hair and that was kind of what we went on. And then eventually saw videos from the family of her inaction laughing surrounded by kids pulling a wagon and then i the thing that was most valuable for me was to have one on one with bev with lindsay with a cousin with jd. And just saying okay. How did she sit. What did she wear. How did she hold her cigarette What was her voice like what. What was your energy like when she came into a room. What was her house like. So just very specific things not to pretend i was her but to somehow find the essence of this woman. Who is just. I mean loved feared feared and loved. When you get a property like this. I mean let's start by that. How did it come to you. He'll billy allergy. Who showed it to you. I said well. To tell you the truth. I read the book you know. Not long after came out because i wanted to educate myself kennedy. Was it her. She made the wonderful wonderful documentary about the hill. People that i remember vividly. But that was more like the shacks in the moonshine. And that's kind of the cliche and cliches are uninteresting. And i think cliche can lead to people being stigmatized and i think this group of people have been stigmatized. And then i heard that ron was had gotten the rights was developing the script and i wrote him a note and i said when you're thinking of memo please think of me thinking never in a million years would you. Because it's not like casting that you would necessarily leaked to. But then he got exciting for. You is the best thing about exciting new territory. And that's the essence of what we do right. I mean we were. We explore the human condition. And you don't want to go over territories spiritual emotional psychological that you've done before and so this was a great great journey for me to to learn about mammo to meet her family. I really believe i. It's just a fact that all great drama is based in family and you tell a very specific story about family and it has repercussions for everyone matter who they are and and that to me is the value of making it authentic and honest because then people can say they they almost subliminally will link it to their own lives. I heard that you met her son. Oh yes yes. He came settled. So what did he say when he's looking at you playing her and in a way reproducing this woman who's gone now he couldn't believe it. I mean the thing when the family and they came later when we were like a bunch of them came on on the day that i shooting the scene with little jd when he's I've told that he has to give his p to his mother and they came onset set. We're we're on a location. And some of them started crying. They somehow whatever we found was the mammal that they remembered and her son came came in another scene and he had to leave because he got so emotional. So that was really gratifying. I think we wanted to do justice. And we wanted to in way carry on the legacy of mammal. I women all over the world who are mammals you know. Always a yankee game sat next to a grandmother and grandfather. Taking care of their ten year old grandson. And i think he'd oh my god no retirement for them. I said their daughter was unable to take care of them so they were raising their grandson and it happens a lot in this country that know. We see every time we turn around to do that. And i say from the specific comes the universal to do that. But i think it's going to have an effect watching this movie now because all of us many of us even if we're lucky enough to live in some kind of bubble where we have. Some family members with us isn't going to be a thanksgiving where we can all get together in large kind of group. it's just impossible with this pandemic. How are you living with. Pandemic there in montana. We'll see interesting. Because i've not achieved as much creatively as i wanted. I wanted to really really right. Haven't and i'm not sure why not be. I think it's brought a kind of sometimes. I feel like. I'm spinning my tires. You know in in the mud and not getting a traction. And but i make sure my sink is clean all the time. My kitchen isn't border. You know i make i will. Do i think that every day going. After the i kind of the little things to keep my life in order that have been important but he things are building. I think i would like to think that a great great era of creativity for for all of us who are in the are artists will come out of this. Whether is you know something's just stating whether you're aware of it or not. But it's there it's going to happen

"kennedy" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Gabler is known among other things as a film critic and historian of the entertainment world but his new book is about politics and the course of american liberalism of the past fifty years. He's written the first volume of a two part biography of the late. Senator edward kennedy kennedy was the youngest of three charismatic brothers who ran for president in the twentieth century. His life was marked by notable political achievements. But also by tragedy and scandal and while he never secured the democratic nomination for president he became a force in the senate where he served for. Nearly forty seven years a proponent of liberal ideas until his death in two thousand nine neal gabler is the author of five previous books. Including biographies of walter winchell. Walt disney and barbra streisand. He joins us from his home in amazon's at long island to talk about his new book catching the wind. Edward kennedy and the liberal our nineteen thirty two to nineteen seventy five. Well neal gave her welcome back. Fresh air thank you very much. Why did kennedy matter this much to you. And it's not a life unexamined. Why did we need a new look at his achievements in life. Well david begin books not with a subject but with a question so when i set out to write this book it wasn't as if i were saying i have to write in edward kennedy biography. It was that i was fixated on the issue of what happened to american liberalism. Which i regard as the largest political question of the last sixty years the one that changed the tectonic plates of american politics. The way to go about answering that question was by looking at the preeminent. Liberal of the last sixty years was senator edward kennedy. I always look at these lives as metaphorical and so i thought by examining this life by telling the story i would be telling another story as well. Which is the story of what happened to liberalism. So that's how. I got to edward kennedy of course. The life provides the narrative engine for the book and liberalism provides the thematic text for the book. And what an eventful life you know. Kennedy came on the scene in the early sixties when liberalism was about to have. It's it's great moment. I mean we you know. We had the voting rights act and socials and medicare and and The civil rights act and great society legislation And he was there at the beginning. That's the book called catching the wind. And it sort of seems the perfect metaphor for him. Coming in at that moment Before we talk about his life. I'm interested in your thoughts on the state of liberalism. Today you know looking at the election that we just experienced Dinner the repudiation of donald trump and yet him getting more votes than he did in four years ago the state of the congress the supreme court state legislatures and the democratic party whereas liberalism now well liberalism years ago. Became really a kind of profanity. I mean people. Talk about the l word and i'm not sure that that is his changed entirely In this current environment liberalism..
Securing Apple devices
"Of apple's know system across multiple types of devices. You know it's it's on on one hand makes things easier protect but it also means that zero day attacks can be more pervasively destructive they cover sort of thousands of times the surface area target attack might otherwise have give and. I'm not sure if i'm getting that right. But is there sort of like a uniformity of like Apples structure whatever that may zero days especially vulnerable so apple doesn't have the same operating system across all the devices were mac. Os there's ipod iowa's grant tv os watch. Each device does have its own separated. separated operating system But is taking approaches to make that more uniform allowing to be able to pick something up from your phone and then be able to pick it back up on your mac or on your ipad so they are allowing that kind of cross use against the different operating systems are making that more like uniform. And so i don't know i i could totally see what the potential risks there Especially as apps made for ipads ios devices being added to the app store and being available on a mac because even though apple is pretty strict on their developers in what they allow in the app store we just had a case recently. Where they actually notarized mac malware to be able to be downloaded motorization was one of their big kennedy security approaches to help only allowed things that are authorized in kind of been blessed off. So they're not in there. There's no perfect defense Rate like you have to be aware of everything. There's always things that are gonna possibly slip. And so i do see that there could be potential risks with that for sure. Okay so speaking to that you know. It sounds like it's pretty hard. Is it pretty hard to sort of get one over via the app store in that way that you know they were able to authorize. This thing was so what happened with that. Was it just that. It looked very very realistic. And just sort of didn't pass the sniff astor's exactly and then it just turned out to be malware and that's that's not a common case no and that's the first i've heard of there may have been more but that was that was kind of like publicly made big knowledge. It's like okay so we want wanna talk. Obviously you're you're a bit of a mac guru here mcafee. We want to talk about. Mac specific security risks. That people should be aware of like what are some some common errors first of all that are made by apple users. You know just out in the world that opened them up to carry risks being careful what you click on that goes across any user. Just mac specific But yet just cautious of what you click on apple does a really good job of trying to put in some protections to the end user so not disabling things in the operating system right so like if you go to stack exchange looking for how to. Hey how do i do this. Really cool thing on my mac. And then they recommend that you disable internal protections like. You shouldn't do that like just cheap do rum. Yeah exactly in like there's always those targeted tools that are lake. Let's clean up your mac like here's your pop rate. That that that that happens a lot on the mac side because they are very focused on like your mac is contaminated. You need to download this kind of thing. So i think there's always that risk In depending on the type of attack and what what. The attackers like motives are is. There's always that sense of urgency rate. Like you need to do this right now. Because you're short-circuiting their commonsense. It's like right before. I can think about it. You just have kind of take a step back right like is this really is something bad But that's hard. I think there's there's always that pressure As a user to just be aware. But people like max because it's easy to use. They don't need all the ins and outs of everything Like people don't know where they're launch damon's launch In that there may be potential Tool there So i think it's just keeping be patient. Be weary of things that they download and click on Keep the native security functionality. That apple gives you enabled. Turn it off And just be more investigative into what they want me to add a would be my biggest lake just for any end user.

"Populated area. All right, 4 37 more Americans finding themselves out of work needing help. It appears the surging virus is causing new layoffs. 778,000 people filed new claims for unemployment benefits last week, such claims had been dropping his people laid off in the spring were rehired.

Did Boston Celtics Overplay Their Hand?
"Boston. Overplay its hand. There were a lot of reports in the hours. Leading up gordon hayward signing that the celtics and the pacers were discussing a sign and trade gary washburn over the boston globe. He suggests that the pacers were willing to throw in miles. Turner the celtics water a miles. Turner plus package whether it's miles. Turner and tj warren or miles turner and victoria depot. That that that celtics package seemed to highly unlikely to be something the pacers would go for. Tj warrant is coming off a monster performance in the bubble and victor oladipo for all his injury issues. last year is still an all star level player. You don't give up to players of that caliber to get a player. That play like gordon hayward frankly so the celtics. They didn't walk away with nothing because they do have tristan thompson. Now they do have jeff teague. But i can see jeff how miles turner would goodness celtics uniform. And the guy is a three point shooting mobile shot-blocking big man. He's not perfect. He's been called soft before there's questions about positional fit. But something tells me brad. Stevens could do well with versatile. Big man who can shoot three pointer. I i just. I wonder if we'll look back on this in a year and wonder if the celtics overplayed their hand because miles turner in addition to all the things i said he's got a reasonable contract by nba standards anyway. Eighteen million dollars per year over the next three. What do you think of that. Do you think there's a chance the celtics overplayed their hands here. I don't know. I don't think so. Crass t taking a slightly different tact on it. Because i wasn't all that a or the whole idea of only getting mile turner back in the deal. I understand everything you just said But the celtics certainly just made a a decision that that's what they were looking for excitement. Lucy gordon hayward elsewhere without getting any say return on. I don't mind that trying to get a little bit more in it. Not working out for them and again. I'm hearing all your points what you're saying about mouse. Turner but that's something maybe dearly age his staff. I'm not saying you're gonna go out and find another mouse. Turner application that production with a couple of different players here and there and whether it ends up being some kind of combination of daniel thais and looking down the bench and seeing what happens off from that point I just wasn't sure that you know. Look indiana if you really wanna gordon hayward i think you had to force them to really make you pay for it and i don't say that do would you come down to it. The pacers were willing to give up that much and so that sure indicates how much that they really wanted. Gordon hayward i'm fine with the celtics student what they did now. You could be ultimately correct. They may regret not adding that kind of player. Especially we get into the playoffs split I agent it is staff are more than willing to let that ride. It see if they can't come up with that kind of a similar player through the course of use it a couple of different players and seeing what they can do at the trade deadline. Yeah they did get tristan thompson. Which is exactly what they need in on that front line. They've got the more athletic up perimeter shooting floor spacing kind of guy. You've got robert williams who is athletic shop locked they didn't have the physical rebounding tough guy. And that's what tristan thompson is brings championship experience to that team which i think will be a valuable addition and jeff teague is fine. He's not a starter anymore. But you're not asking him to basically kemba walker insurance down there in case kennedy's to take time off that knee injury so it wasn't. It wasn't a failure of an off season for boston. I just. I wonder how we look at this this summer. The summer this fall we look at a couple years

Joe Biden names picks for secretary of State, Homeland Security chief, director of national intelligence
"Well we're going to get to our first look now at the president-elect's newest cabinet members later today. The team which includes obama administration alums will assemble in delaware for an official announcement this afternoon. Anthony blinken will serve as secretary of state he previously served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser. Alejandra york us will be the first latino and the first immigrant to become homeland security secretary. He served as deputy homeland secretary and director of citizenship and immigration services. April heinous will become the first woman to hold the role of director of national intelligence. She previously as a national security lawyer. And deputy cia director. Jake sullivan will become national security adviser. He was five national security adviser and was a top aide to hillary clinton. While she was secretary of state linda. Thomas greenfield will be named. Us basseterre to the u. n. And former secretary of state john kerry will be the climate on roy and former federal federal reserve chair. Janet yellen will be the first woman ever become treasury secretary. If she is confirmed by the senate would an impressive list let's bring in former. Nato supreme allied commander retired four-star navy. Admiral james redis. He is chief. International security diplomacy and less for nbc news and msnbc and former treasury official on morning joe economic analyst. Steve rattner joins us as well. Good to have you both admiral. Let's begin with some of president-elect biden's foreign policy selections the wall street journal opinion page said. They were internationalists but also said on the other. Hand talking about blinken and Jake sullivan they were also more hawkish. On some obama era debates. Mr sullivan supported antitank mrs for ukraine which president obama posed. Mr blinken favored the iraq war in two thousand and two intervention in libya. Mr blanket was known for repeating the mantra superpowers. Don't bluff regarding mr obama's red line fiasco about the use of chemical weapons and syria. I would take that like me. You you agree. Superpowers don't bluff. You don't draw red line and then step back from it. And apparently that's what our new secretary of state Believes as well. Well let's start with the team itself kind of step back for a minute show and this is the most experience group coming in That i can remember certain going back to bush lawn and before that maybe to the kennedy administration if you listen to the titles that make it. Just read off deputy to this deputy to that do this. These are now people who are stepping up to cabinet level. They are experienced. They are well prepared boy. How refreshing is that number two and maybe more importantly joe. This is a very collegial team. This he'll give you a sports analogy. This one's for mike barnicle. This is like the one thousand nine hundred eighties celtics basketball team. They don't really care who. The high score is more interested in getting assists that running up the score out there on the field trying to make each other look good. It's that kind of group. And i worked with all of them when i was supreme allied commander in. They were in all their jobs. And then finally. You're absolutely right. This is an internationalist group. A little bit of hawkish edge to it. But i think that's okay one. It's tempered as you see from this group by that that instinctive desire to reach out into the international world. They'll look for allies. They'll look for coalitions. They'll look to work with international organizations. I think this is a a fine selection and will serve the nation. Well
Donald Trump's disregard for our transition rituals threatens democracy
"Have you noticed. This is not normal. The president openly trying to say only the votes for him should count talking about sailing election. No legal path to succeed. We've been reporting on how those michigan republicans were welcomed at the white house after being shamed in their own home state for what they were doing. And donald trump is also taking petty moves that basically delay or mess with aspects of the transition. They won't mess with the transfer of power. All of this. We want to show tonight with. The evidence is a radical break from a longstanding. Bipartisan approach to the peaceful transfer of power in america that look forward to talking to the president so honored that he was attended with hospitality to me. And my wife. Yesterday didn't need to do this. And i am most grateful that He would do so good morning last night. I had a warm conversation with president. Elect barack obama. I congratulated him and senator biden on their impressive. Victory told the president-elect he can count on complete cooperation for my administration as he makes the transition to the white house. My number one priority. In the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures dental is successful. We turned presidential historian. Michael beschloss what contrast you see from there to now well once again are a donald trump tonight as a category of his own. Go all the way back to john adams who lost to the guy who was at that time as you know his political enemy. Thomas jefferson. Adams was angry about being defeated by jefferson. And he didn't hang around for the inauguration that tradition adopted established yet so adams got an a stage coach and went back to massachusetts before jefferson was born in but it began this tradition. That even when you have an incumbent president who is angry at the guy who beat him for reelection. Herbert hoover in one thousand nine hundred ninety three and franklin roosevelt over to the white house to talk about how they should transfer power even when they rolled up to the capital roosevelt and hoover sat in the back of an open car. They shared a lap robe. If you could believe it didn't talk much. But that's a tradition. And as you say the tradition is running alongside both the rules constitutional requirements and the norms that much abuse a framework or term in the last four years That provide a buffer a provide a context all this. We just showed the outgoing president's michael stays with us. We want to show michael. And our viewers the other cases where we have seen the candidates as mentioned who lost just conceding with some eye on their place in history john mccain making what for him was a painful concession to barack obama in two thousand and eight hillary clinton in that loss that shocked so many including many in the republican party. She got up the next morning and gave that speech pledging cooperation to president-elect trump and sixteen we've seen presidents who lost reelection like trump did face the music the people of the united states that made the choice and of course. I accept that decision. But i have to admit not with the same enthusiasm that i accepted the decision for years ago. People have spoken. And we respect the majesty of the democratic system. I just called governor clinton over in little rock and offered my congratulations. he did run a strong campaign. I wish him well in the white house. You know michael you deal with facts and evidence you have a rigorous process between where you start and publishing one of your history books. How do you measure class. Because what i see there is something. That's hard to prove. But i feel it inside which is across ideology in parties. We've just seen many different presidents showing a type of class or even grace that is absent right now at the white house. We're going to ari. I've got two sons who are now in their twenties but they used to play a little league and every time they played a game even if they lost they would shake hands with the winning team and say good game. That was assumed this. That's that's american. What is not. American is to claim when you didn't win to be a poor loser you try to be out of keeping with the tradition of all those guys you just showed even richard nixon who is not thought of in history as a particularly gracious winner. Nineteen sixty gets beaten by john kennedy. He was very angry about it and it was very sad about it but he goes out and tells us supporters in los angeles in america. Once a decision is made we unite behind the candidate who was elected that was even before the final results were. Yeah that's great a great example. You're given off as we say off the top of the dome michael We have one more for you. And that is al gore. Who did have this tight legal challenge. Everyone remembers frustrating. For both sides in the run up to it and then of course frustrating for the person losing so narrowly having won more votes overall total across america. Al gore take a look now the. Us supreme court has spoken. Let there be no doubt while. I strongly disagree with the court's decision. I accept it. I accept the finality of this outcome. Which will be ratified next monday. In the electoral college and tonight for the sake of our unity as a people and strength of our democracy. I offer my concession. If i may be a little optimistic here at the end of the week michael ask you to guide us. What would you as someone who cares deeply about america. What would you tell citizens both parties neither party whatever. What is incumbent upon the rest of us to do if we never get that concession from this president. What do we do from here together. We just say the. Donald trump is a gross aberration. Get him out out the door. The door doesn't hit him on the way out on the twentieth of january and say we demand our leaders that they do. What all those other candidates that you show tonight did show some graciousness and understand that democracy is more important. Listen to what al gore said. He didn't say. I agree with the supreme court decision in bush v gore. He says for the sake of our democracy. I offer my concession. Most canada's most presidents love democracy want to unite the country. Donald trump is a gross aberration and exception to that tradition. Soon he'll be gone. Michael beschloss gets the word on that. Thank you sir.

Trump fires top cybersecurity official Chris Krebs
"So when it comes to election security it turns out. There's no job security. Trump's purges continue his. Latest is the ousting of chris. Cribs krebs was dhs security cyber security official. Who lost his job for contradicting trump's claims of a fraudulent and stolen election. In fact krebs said. It was the most secure election in american history. Join us a line for on this and other headlines is national security expert juliette kayem. She's an analyst at cnn forces secretary of the department of homeland security yourself in faculty chair the homeland security program at harvard. University's kennedy school of government. Hello juliet our you. We're great to talk to you. Great to talk to you both on zoom this time so we shouldn't have problems like we did last time. Good fingers crossed. So i'm heartened by. Chris crabs even though he just got fired by the press because he's he's was speaking truth to power in the classic sense saying that the there's not widespread fraud in this election. He did fire but his republican but at least he stood up to the president. Yes exactly and i think that's the way to view it. I know everyone so nervous. And you know we have a right to be. This is no way to treat a democracy or a peaceful transition of power but nonetheless The president is now just wildly searching for a narrative of how he how he loses which he's already lost and so that's every lawsuit he can bring. She's losing about thirty of them at a time. It is questioning the voting process and questioning the voting results and so Firing chris crabs who ran an office that was not only did heroic work in terms of supporting election and the election from foreign interference But also one. That was pushing back against disinformation That was coming out of the white house so that is a good thing. So chris i know chris is. Chris knew he was going to get fired. There's no one's crying here. This was this was someone who believed that. His role was for the united states and not for president. He did his job. The president is petty. chris's deputy quit Chris's the third in line. Who's running the office with someone who can't be fired easily. 'cause he's career and has been part of cybersecurity for while the president will soon discover how How hard it is to. You know to undermine the truth which was that. They did a successful job. So let me just say. This guy's unbelie not only speaking of truth to power around election day. Listen to this guy in october. It's almost like he knew what his boss. Donald trump is gonna say. Here is a krebs in october Talking about what might happen. Post november third patient. That's a lot of opportunity space for the bad guys. Whoever they are to come in and try to so chaos so doubt in the integrity of the process and remember attempts to de-legitimize. The election aren't going to stop on election day. How perfect is that. I mean described to a tee. Exactly what his boston right. So trump had one. Then you know then then no one would. No one be thinking about chris. Christopherson -ticipant either. That it was closed or the biden would win. And so here's the thing so trump's not sophisticated. I mean he's a bullet in china shop. You everyone wonders. If there's some master chess game going on. There's not. I mean he he he he only cares about himself and he's he's bringing us closer bringing us to on unreasonable ledges or cliffs than than need be but in the end. You know this is. Chris was ten steps ahead of him as well as the department in terms of the side in terms of defending the election and ultimately of course trump

To future generations of women, you are the roots of change
"Yeah salah. Hello hello hello one trill to have this opportunity when we ask all of our ted community many of them. Who would you like to hear from. If we're going to look forward on word when it comes to women in the world unanimously. The answer was gloria steinem. Now i know you're way too modest to accept that easily. So before we move onward. May i go back a bit since we have known each other for a long time and talk about those early days when you were building a movement challenging stereotypes moving beyond call four norms. You must have had some manifestation a fearless and your life. What were what were your fears. And how did you overcome them now. I certainly had a lot of fears and chief among them was speaking in public. Just like i am now because you know we choose to express ourselves in the way that is most natural and i became a writer. Because i didn't wanna talk. So the first thing i had to overcome was the fear of public speaking and because i was afraid to do it by myself i asked a friend to do with me. Dorothy pitman hughes and then flow kennedy anyway so we became in that way somewhat accidentally white woman one black woman speaking together which you know was very helpful to express. The movement was for everyone in those early days when you were becoming not only a really powerful public speaker in spite of your fears you were also normalizing and creating response to a word that became the anthem for so many of us literally changing lives standing in front of crowds and saying feminism is for every woman and i see now as as you do that there are still ways in which feminism is not understood as a concept misunderstood criticized. Sometimes where killed. How do you describe feminism. It's just the radical idea that human beings are all equal and we can dispense with the labels of gender and class and race and begin to realize our unique individuality Of course feminism was misunderstood in the beginning as if it were about female superiority or It was a movement for lesbians only not for all women. I mean you know. There were all kinds of of Misunderstandings not to mention ridicule. I hope that that's passed. I used to just send people to the dictionary to look. Feminism very helpful. How do you feel the new generation. The next generation of young women. What is their relationship with the word and the concept of. There's still a lot to be done to reach that equal stat. Yeah well. I don't think that i mean the the the word is still there woman. Ism women's liberation the role kinds of words But i think it's much more about content and not worrying too much about form so black lives. Matter was started by three young black feminists that was their creation that has is beginning to change much that needs to be changed And they just assumed that of course they were there as three young black feminists and you mentioned a reality that has just happened for all of the women in the united states. And that is this national presidential election in which the data is showing a great difference. Between the way white women voted. Black women voted and we know that women are not monolithic but the divide and the differences among us in every way. Not just racially. But where we live economically and culturally and almost. Every way has been deepened in the last few years. How do we as women began to bridge these differences well. I don't know if it's actually been deepened. But in any case. I mean the the thing that is different about us is that we have wombs or it and we all have wombs and there is in patriarchal forms of government and governance and just Culture an effort to control our bodies in our minds in ordered to control reproduction. And if there is racism is there is than there is a another motive which is to try to keep racists separate that is a racist motive and to perhaps try to influence one race to produce more than the other. Which actually you can see now in in White racist movements so it is just very basic and the reasons for our unity are very basic because the simple revolutionary statement is that we get to make decisions over our own bodies. How great is that
"kennedy" Discussed on The HoopsHype Podcast With Alex Kennedy
"Everyone's this. Is Alex Kennedy? This is not a regular episode of the say Podcast as I'm sure you realized when you saw the title this is more of an announcement about the future of this podcast and some changes as some of you may have seen on twitter. Today was actually my last day as a writer and podcasters for hoops, hype and USA Today Sports I accepted a new job and. I can't share more details about my next venture just yet, but basically I was offered a deal that I felt was too good to pass up, so I decided to pursue this new opportunity. I wanted to explain that because in this industry. Especially right now there are so many layoffs and furloughs that are happening, so I just know that this situation wasn't anything like that. You know this is. Is Good News. This is exciting news and I really want to stress that now with that said. It's also bittersweet. I, loved working for hoops hype I was an avid hoops hype reader long before I was a hoops hype employees. It was surreal to see my work on this website that I've been reading since I was a kid. I mean I really loved this site and I want to thank my. My colleagues for giving me a wonderful three and a half years at hoops, hype and USA Today Sports. You know I couldn't have had a better experience and most of the time. It didn't even feel like work writing my articles record in his podcast shooting videos. It was so much fun and I'm going to miss working here. I really am but again. I'm also really excited about this next venture. The important thing to note is that hoop site podcast won't be going anywhere. A new host will be taking over the show at some point in the future, and they're going to try to provide similar analysis and interviews that we've been doing over the last three years behind the scenes, the same producer Brian for its will continue to work on this podcast and my editors. Editors hoops. Hype will still be involved as well so wall I'm leaving most of the people that make this podcast great are sticking.

"Friends. They knew everybody who was anybody. In the nineteen sixties in America, and the shrive is really were American royalty for want of a better word. They had the association with the Kennedys, but they went in the direct line of fire like the men in the Kennedy family were that daughter, married Arnold that's right Maria, and ironically on developed heart conditions, often marrying into the family for all intents and purposes, Arnold and Maria marriage was mostly happy until he started having sex with the made, but. They had lovely children and Patrick is not an actor. He's a good looking blunted and the daughters Katherine Schwarzenegger Okay She married Chris Pratt. and. She's by all accounts everything that the Kennedy Women's best strengths were and none of the none of the bad ones, but who knows they've got? So, after UNICEF, this Patricia, who's Pats? She married law food, and then we come to bobby. Bobby. Really had a chance of becoming president, and he was president-elect. Yeah, and by all accounts. Everybody said he was a real impressive smart. Strategic and really warm. Human being everybody loved Bobbing Jackie in all of her memoirs wrote. What is support? He was after Jack was assassinated. And Bobby had none of the burning desire that the other brothers had in some ways he was a lot more calm and he was happy to be the attorney general for Awhile. You know they used to talk while he. He was Attorney General. About little brother's watching you because obviously elder brother was the president but I. I don't know whether anybody really knows the story of his death in this Putt cost, but he was also fascinated, and he was shot while leaving a political ran. And you know famously. The actual moment of his death is like his brothers captured on camera. And Saran Saron is the guy who did it right. You're very much mob related Lockley we'll because he. He went after the mob during his time as attorney general, but it just didn't capture late. What chose stood for in this family? Apple Jack. That was jive jaded everything. Three Bobby was the campaign manager prison. He paid for Jack to getting the water, and then bribe to every head to everybody, and he actually famously said you know I'm GonNa. Pay For you to get into the White House, but I'm not paying for a landslide. Incision But while go back to Joe actually wants to power in new Manica game to power. He was anti Semitic, but he was operating with my Linski, who was one of the famous mobsters in New York Luckily John Italian. He operated all of them and he kept that link. The Chicago mob. Secured that constituency for Jack Julieta struck in sixty one. and. Jack was did. And Bobby. Traumatized, but he had a chance yet to be his own man, he was a president-elect in other words earlier to do get sworn in. Let's just spend a minute on bobby. Because he's really interesting. He was well known for advocating the Civil Rights Movement for the Civil Rights Movement his fight against organized crime, which we've referred till ready. He was in office during the Johnson Administration for a few months. And, then he was ready to beat Kenneth Keating. In the Senate race in New York which he won, and then he opposed all kinds of racial discrimination Vietnam War. He was on the right side of all of these things. He was friends with Martin. Luther King the. Guy had voters of all ages, but most of the young voters lots of African American voters Hispanic Voters Catholic. Voters the kind of constituency that the modern democratic. Party relies so heavily. And he was mortally wounded than when he was shut by the Sarah Sarah, who was twenty, four and a Palestinian. Allegedly, it was in retaliation for his support of Israel. But, a lot of people are saying they're mob links as well, and it's just the most incredible sad story, because now we're onto. You know five kids are this. Gene was the next one. She was the eighth kid she married. A Smith and then final one was ted. Edward Kennedy. He lived the longest of the brothers, but also had this really tragic life in some ways because he was on his way to the White House to. And then he had this incident with Mary Jo Kapit, who died in that car accident in Chappaquiddick where he? He really didn't do himself any favors. Because he was order, they were driving too fast. He drove off the bridge. She drowned and he only reported it like the next afternoon. He went to sleep. He woke up the next day. He was panicking. It ruined his chances of being president with a duck, but he was a good senator. He ended up being a terrific senator. He He created and promulgated a whole lot of very powerful legislation, which remains in force in America today. He was for a long time. The Democrat leader in the Senate. And whether it was a majority minority, he was the guy and was really. America's conscience in some ways for a long time, and even Republicans have to begrudgingly give him respect. I didn't know a lot about Ted. I just know yet a of Rantings Eddie. As an demons definitely and between those three Ted Bobby and Jack, they also just had six with every viewer in Hollywood. Remarkable. Just the Kennedys would just constantly horny Marilyn Monroe another famous one Marlene Dietrich. And Joe was sixty with twenty four year old for nine years. He was with Mike and when she wanted to go on a diet. Yet A fit, so it's just incredible. These these Kennedy's I mean. We just scratched the surface. Ultimately beyond that there was the next generation which also went through tragedy, and we can just touch on those jacks, children. John John was actually John. Kennedy Jr.. He was killed in a plane accident. He was piloting plane with his girlfriend. Caroline, it says. Your Day to day Hannah and a whole lot of beautiful girls, he had George magazine which launched, and then he died in this tragic plan. He was on the the task, so to speak. Absolutely, he was the darling of east coast median and his sister. Caroline is really the only survivor with declan in blood, and she's got three kids who seem to actually look quite a lot like the girl. Jackie! And The Sun looks just like her brother. It's true it's exact. But some of the others. skied into a tree and died. A number of them had drug problems alcoholism. It's just a it's a disaster. They call it the Kennedy curse. You know that this family drew had advantages and worked so hard in so many ways just couldn't get pastas, and it's own about Joe, you know. Joe Story I mean that's one of the most incredible stories operate. Although, we go! That's the Kennedys I mean we leaving a lot of homework for you on this one because it all into one episode of what a family. Blind.
"kennedy" Discussed on Blind History
"She left. And she left living this laugh and Joseph Kennedy by then was rich, dabbling in the Hollywood studios as mentioned earlier, and he sits them, look. We want to launch the great movie, and so they started a company together partners. Eat lavish gifts on her, but she left. For Coats and a cough or a director. But then she's noticed near the end of the relationship that was sitting around in, and she said to him I noticed that the car that you bought for this director's claim of my expense account company. So he didn't say a word, he took his handkerchief yet as us a scary us. You dabbed these lips he got up. He walked out, and then she went to see what he wasn't was telling estate he was gone. He went back to the east coast. Never spoke to again, and she ended up with a ton of tax problems. Tried to contact him to help him out of the text issues that she had. She ended up being broke while because she asked a Christian. He was such a dichotomy in fact, because although he was the strong father who imbued kids with huge ambition, and gave them the privilege and advantage that he could, he was also hot as you've just described, and the best example of her haughty was. Is Daughter Rosemary the eldest? who was born, they used to say mildly retarded in those days, and for much of her childhood they had realized that she was actually a little bit deficient I mean part of the reason for that was because during the time of her birth, the Spanish influenza broken out. They went any doctors on coal, and they had to wait for a doctor, and the nurse told rose to disclose legs which. Kept the child in the birth canal, and as a result, she was deprived of oxygen, so she came out a little bit slow. Should apparently a very low I Q, and instead of. You know kind of just medicating or waiting or taking trouble with her. She became an embarrassment to Joe and he decided to have a lobotomize at the age of twenty three. Not lobotomy in those days was a horrible operation because what they do, say to open up your skull, and they take something that looked like a butter knife, and they would keep you awake and they asked her to Sing God. Bless America and recite the Lord's prayer over and over again. And they knew they'd gone too far when she stopped. So you imagine the cutting the brain and in order for them to know that they've gone far enough or too far. She just stopped reciting the Lord's prayer. And then from there on, she was like two year old there that was. incontinent, she couldn't speak properly. She was put in institution in Wisconsin for the rest of life, and she any died in two, thousand and five. Something it was just horrible the real. Sad part of that for the rest of the siblings as they didn't even know because. He died didn't mention Rosemary and he never went to visit her once when they found out that she was in the institution, it was nineteen, sixty, eight or something, and then Eunice and I. Think one of the other sisters probably gene. That that part of the reason that younus eventually founded the special. Olympics was because of what had happened to Rosemarie direct and eunice became like the caretaker, the family and ended up. Looking after all the different kids and grandkids, who adult with drugs, and had alcoholic problems and and Rosemary I mean she lived a long time. She did eighty six or something she lives here and our unto kid number three in its tragedy tragedy. Not Kid number four kick Kathleen is was sick to marry the Duke of Devonshires, eldest son, the Marcus Huntington this was a perfect story. This is so Kennedy. You know as she would have married into the English aristocracy. This is a wealthy nobleman. They Une Chatsworth in Dhabi share, it's just the most magnificent family to marry into, and they're all thrilled. And and Kathleen was this beautiful effervescent creature. She had freckles. She was just lovely, and she and the mock of Huntington got in a plane, and they had a plane accident over the Swiss Alps. So. She was gone at a very young age, so if you're rose and Joe. You've already lust two kids to death by the stage. One is in an institution lobotomize D- Another is going to be president, which should bring you some joy, but later will be assassinated in the most famous assassination in history, and we're only onto kid number four and I mean it just looks like the bad luck. Their created bad luck because. They were Catholic Protestant. The Duke. So the Madison you will not, Merriam. To kick. Can you imagine Joe Intervening? Sir Say. Where you're going to get compassion from him. Say Meeting Peres so that fateful flight was to meet the dad because she was trying to reconnect with the family. Rose was A. battle-axe actually yeah, she was less very pious woman hugely into her Roman Catholicism. I think Pope Pious. The twelfth eventually made her a papal counter it that's right, only six American women to have achieved that title. Sort of a religious and Jackie Kennedy said I think Jack's mothers to brought and she would rather Sarah's. You then read a book well. She's a scary woman in historical terms, and obviously she went through huge tragedy. The old joke is does rose Kennedy Black Dress. Because, she went to so many funerals said. She had very strong jaw and your kind of jutted out quite luck. Night watched an interview, her and Youtube the other day. Had this Friday the voice. So, she was a strange woman and says riddled. Riddled with prescription drugs Oh really yes, taking everything because she had to deal with Gyro. I mean he was operating. Will ever the place and children are dying around? Luckily, the Fifth Child Eunice lived to old age. She died quite recently. Actually she's the mother of Maria Shriver and the rest of the shriver family who had terrific by the most normal of the Kennedys. If you could save it, yeah, however much that applies, but she also married. This terrific guy called sergeant was actually is name. His rank in the military sargent, Shriver, who is a very very smart intellectual guy. They used to host parties with all the great writers. Writers of the time you know, go vidal their.

"Blind history the Kennedys now we've done an episode and John, Kennedy, who was president of the United States, famously assassinated in Dallas Texas, where we decided to take a closer look at this family, because they were remarkable and the father of the whole lot of them, the father of all nine kids, the dynasty effectively was Joseph. Patrick, Kennedy. And he was born in eighteen, eighty, eight. He died in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, nine, having had to witness some of his kids, dying and some real tragedy along the way which will get into, but Joseph married famously rose Fitzgerald whose father was the mayor of Boston and that was the beginning of the Kennedy Story, the real camelot tale the developed from there, but he was an incredible guy because he made a fortune in Bethlehem steel. He became assistant secretary of the Navy. He was acquainted with Hollywood and refinanced several Hollywood studios I mean by the time the guy was thirty. He was a multimillionaire and from there. He became a leading member of the Democratic Party of the Irish Catholic community. The president then Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed him as first chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission and later to the Maritime Commission. He was appointed to the position of United States invested the United Kingdom where he famously had a weekend at Windsor with then King and Queen, and the two princesses and their family in Britain may be developed this fairytale reputation. You know this guy who was this real. Real go-getter, the snow nonsense, American Irish Catholic, who just had come out of nowhere, and how he and his wife just dominated the social scene in the UK, and give people an idea of what the new America would look like nine kids that they had, and I'll go through them briefly just so you know who we're talking about along the way, but the eldest son Joseph. Who Was Joseph Junior? Then there was John was called. Jack became President Rosemary. Who will get in a minute Kathleen? WHO called kick? Yunus who married Sergeant. Patricia they called Pat Married Lawford Robert Bobby. Jean. Who Married a Smith and then later Edward the youngest of the mall, Ted, that's a brief overview of the family, but while such to cover with the Kennedys, my host Anthony Measure of the MD of time, blinds and shutters. This is one of your favorites, because my God. There's no lack of stuff to talk about here I. Love the Kennedys for good reasons. Bad reasons larger than life. Just incredible, Joe. The grandfather could spend a story. He could really spend a story and he knew exactly what he wanted, but he's grandfather came from Ireland. So he always painted the pitching the press that they came from they came from Ireland and came to America broke in other camps. steerage like one of those Esley. But what happened what his grandfather did? Come over because of starvation, the feminine in Ireland and Straightaway he managed to acquire the saloon in the harbor in Boston and east. None of them drink was all about. How can I get ahead? How can I get a hit? What cannot do to get ahead? Who'd on to convince Brab? And, so he used to sit in east saloon, and used to offer was ski to all the people that used to come in and listen to all the stories, and that's I developed at so. By the time he son was born, he'd gone a long way to definitely above middleclass. Oh. Yeah, and he sent which was JOE's dead. He operated Boston lecture up right at the world yeah. He really put Joe into all the right places and he was the one that introduced Joe to John. Fitzgerald was the mayor's daughter. Joe was very average in school, but he managed to get into the top schools. He was quite a good sportsman and say you wanted to play the Princeton I team baseball, but he wasn't that good. So He's dead. Properties in the captain's dad was in a bad way. The loss game of the season. They put him into the team, so he could have it on TV so. It's just incredible just to give background of the Kennedys coming from Ireland And what top of persona they had already and that just driving. You know they they. There's an ongoing discussion about American meritocracy, and how that contrasts with aristocracy. In Europe and you know who you descended from is more important in Europe and America. It's what you can do and who you know, but it's also about money and I think Joe. Kennedy realized that early on which is why his first stop was to make a ton of money, and then after that he pursued all the other ambitions, but he. He realized he couldn't ever be president. He was a bit of a Nazi sympathizer. Certainly an apologist, good friends with Neville Chamberlain while he was ambassador in the UK, and kept on talking about. Don't worry about this war thing and keep appeasing hidden, interesting, Semitic anti, Semitic because the Irish Catholics at that stage, where by definition anti Semitic, but he realized that what he had done during his career up to then had precluded him from running for the position president, but he would have if he could have. And he said to himself at some point that me make this happen for my children, and obviously the eldest son. Joseph was being groomed for this Joseph. A bit of a tragic character was really good-looking, really athletic. He was the apple of his father's I. Being the eldest son to he had all the hopes and ambitions of his father drilled into him from an early age. He joined the military. And to counter long story short, he's actually flying over Europe. When he was killed, and that was the first of many tragedies to befall this family, he was awarded the Purple Heart the distinguished flying cross the navy cross, but all of this posthumously, and that was a huge blow to Joe's ambitions for him, and for his eldest son, so he just transferred all of that to jet. Jack felt it. But what Dr Joe Genia to do that stupid flat, because the war was almost over, and what happened was there was a certain area that kip hooting England in the war with the Germans sampled on the beach in France in bombing England, so they cannot for the strategy to make this flying missile. I mean they're gonNA parachute out, but what happened was. The didn't even know, but the navy reading sorted out in two days before blown up the spot. But Joe wanted to go so badly because of what happened with Jack Jacket or eighty, one this middle. Yeah, when he was in the Navy when East P craft sank and he saved some of his crew. Joe Junior Cities Kirpan. We have to earn his policy nine hundred, and it's not right. I don't WanNa do it. And blinded by ambition took it and turbulence hit the plan, and it blew up in English Channel my God. We're not gonNA talk too much about President John. F, Kennedy who called Jack.

A, very tragic figure in some respects I mean. He said he had a great childhood and a great life. Most of the Kennedys grew up in this idyllic Kinda, Hyannis Port Summers and Palm Beach and off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, and you know in boats and traveling to interesting places going to these Ivy League colleges, so it wasn't as if they had a horrible life, but I think Jack's challenge was that ultimately his presidency would be eclipsed by his assassination, and he had many women during his time, which is something he had in common with his father.

There may be a reason for it that it may be there. I mean from the time they're little kids growing up people come up to him. Say when are you going to be president. And especially with John F.

I don't believe in curses but there must be some subconscious level something being very strong. That's going on that. Some terrible pressure that's going on. I've had people say that it could be the reverse. I tend to say that they have these feelings of self-destruction that are not going to be president. I'm not GonNa make this just too much. I can't take this and that at some unconscious level. That's going on but I've had others say the opposite. They'd say that they felt John F.. Kennedy Junior in your was just bold beyond reason that he took great risks extreme risks that he didn't wear a life preserver need be out in a Kayak and that he felt he was indestructible that.
