Thanks, Catherine for joining us. Thanks so much for having me, Catherine. I just have to ask for all the guardians. Grandparents fathers out there. We know that mothers are not. Not the only ones caring for children. What was important to you? Why do you need to focus the podcast that you do on moms in particular? So for the last few years, I've been researching and reporting on the experience of working motherhood in America, and I really feel like that experience, and how it intersects with public policy and earning power and political power, and sort of how we think about ourselves hasn't really been well, covered and the problems that mother's face in America are not personal a lot of mothers feel like failures. But really it's America that's failing us and there's huge systemic problems with how little mothers are supported. And I think telling people to get up earlier or just try harder isn't the solution. We need much much bigger thinking. And that's why I'm hoping the show with reporting and storytelling is going to inject some brand new ideas into the conversation. I wanna talk a little bit about some of the people you've profiled so far. If profiled a punk musician rabbi mother, you've talked to women working in a legal brothel a mom running for a seat interstate. It's legislature. These women have very different lines of work and very different backgrounds and different support systems as well. The majority of working moms are not sex workers or touring rock-n-rollers. How does a podcast episode about mothers who work in brothels change that conversation? I really believe that mothers who have different life experiences can all learn from each other. Even if someone doesn't have our exact life experience actually, some of the women who work in brothels gha challenges. They face are very similar in some ways to many other mothers. But I think like they face a lot of stigma for their work. And I think those questions are figuring out how to have a career that supports your family and allows you to be the kind of parent you wanna be are universal questions, and it's not about sort of sensationalizing their experience. And also the brothels actually think a lot about how to support working moms which was really surprising to me. And I think that's a great challenge for all other kinds of workplaces to think about that too. So we're talking about universal questions. You also do an episode that brings one of these issues front and center, and that is the episode about peace garden in Las Vegas, and that's the twenty four hour childcare center near the Vegas strip. I'd like to play a little clip from your interview with one of the women who works there not being able to find late night care isn't a new problem, Diana. Moreno works at peace garden, and says her own parents went through the same dilemmas when she was growing up when my parents moved here from California, my parents, ended up becoming restroom attendance and after school, I my mom didn't have anywhere to leave me. She really didn't. So I was either under the sink, and that's where I would be until her shift was over because I understood you know, what my mom had to go through and. You know, until she was on with her shift about two three in the morning, then, you know, go home and then boom back to school. But it happens. You mentioned in your podcast, sometimes childcare is conceived around the idea of families having banker's hours, and that's not true anymore of this workforce. Unfortunately, most childcare centers are still really set up around the idea that there are two parents in a family, and they work nine to five and that just isn't the reality of American families, and it isn't the reality of American workplaces. And so I am very excited that childcare is becoming part of the political debate and twenty twenty but I think we also a lot of times really center, very middle-class experiences with the difficulties of childcare. And so that's why I wanted to do this story about a twenty four hour daycare that really caters to a group that I think has very little voice in the childcare discussion women a lot of single mothers. Who work go to school all day and work over? Overnight in a twenty four hour city of Las Vegas and their casino workers, they're nurses. They're dancers. And I think as we think about childcare those are voices we really need to be hearing. So far, your podcast is focused on stories of other moms, but you have an upcoming episode. That's more self reflective. It's an audio diary of your experience starting up the podcast, and then realizing you were pregnant again, you have that moment on tape. Let's hear that God. Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God. And like God, it would be ridiculous for a podcast about being a working mother to somehow be jeopardized by having another baby. But like I've seen so much bad behavior in the world that God only knows and Catherine what happened to you. So as I was making this audio diary, these sort of unexpected life events took place, and I think that the episode really touches on a lot of feelings about pregnancy. Ambivalence. And success in addition and loss that I feel like a lot of women feel inexperienced, but don't talk about a lot. And and I went on to actually miscarry that pregnancy at eleven weeks, and the audio diary also reflects some very personal moments in my journey with that why was this meaningful for you to include? I really feel like the reason I'm doing this show is because I believe mother's experiences aren't taken seriously, and that we need a much richer more three dimensional portrait of motherhood, and I just happened to sort of have that in my own hands about my own experience. And I feel like so many mothers are trusting me to tell their stories that I wanted to tell mine too. That's Catherine Goldstein her podcast. The double shift is in the middle of its first season right now, Catherine. Thank you for talking with me. Thanks for having me. And finally today we have a conversation about a new film called the burial of coho. The movie was directed by Samuel buzzer. Wola better known as blitz. The embassador. It's visually stunning tale that takes place entirely in his native Ghana our own Michelle Martin spoke with him about the film, and they began by discussing his decision to make a movie after working for years as a musician. I had made music for six years, and I slowly getting to the point where I realized that trying to communicate this Africanness that I know about through music was doing it. And so I I knew that I had to expand the palette. And you know, I've been a visual artist since I was a kid made music, and I felt cinema was the. The logical next step. It allows us to combine all these things that we know visual, and sonic, and it also puts people in the shoes of characters. So it it makes sense as a medium to communicate this Africanness. So tell us about the film, tell us about the and I want to dig into some of the themes in a minute without giving too much away. Tell us a little bit about the the the film is about two brothers who have jagged past one brother goes missing. We kinda suspect brothers responsible for it. But his daughter then has to go on this magical journey to find him when nobody else can I'm gonna play a clip now, it's between father and daughter co Joe and SE when is the language that it's in the scene is in funding. Yes. Which is a dialect of chief. Okay. Into. I was never could. So John Carr. Med? A number. It's such a lovely gentle seen I translate. Yes. Tell us what's going on was. She says if you leave me I will turn into the wind disappear into thin air and find you and the father response, you don't have to turn into air to go anywhere. I'll never leave you. And that was one of those moments that I feel we haven't seen much of in cinema general father daughter relationships, but definitely in in African cinema where it's tender, it's heartfelt. And also the little girl has a knowing which was very specific to this film as well. Trying to entrust as much of the power of this film in this little black girl who had clarity over her years..
