"Having lost my mom at twenty eight when she was sixty three years old having last three or four friends all women of color to suicide early twenties two weeks after i gave birth to my best friends from high school died unexpectedly and experienced walking with my mom. Her last few months On earth when she was after battling cancer for fourteen years in walking with her and alongside her and feeding her and changing her and carrying for her and loving for her and being in the room when she transitions think those experiences throughout the course of my life have allowed me an insight into just how precious and finite and short life can be and so the question then becomes our time on. Earth is not guaranteed. It's okay to just do what we can do over here and enjoy it all happen And i wonder how much that might be. Reflected generational with other folks In particular of of young black folks in the us who had grown up alongside and becoming behind me who have seen death literally become spectacle in front of our eyes. He's constant encounter with via social media whether it be police shootings where other things that are. Now just right in front of our eyes And given that we live in a culture in the us that is not well we like like to shut it down any any case yeah I wonder if emerging out of this twenty twenty moment. There might be a reintregation of how he sit with death and grief not as like something that is sad that dwelling well. It's also we don't dwell with the fact of mortality that's it. That's what i'm trying to get at is that we live. And then we die and i think it was tony morrison who said that like that might be the point of it okay at that there is something about the fact that we are mortal that there is a definite beginning middle and end to the arc of our lives. That is at once. That i wanna use is humbling. But it also frees up so much. Yeah it does allow us to have this generational view that like well. I'm here and wendy. I'm not going to be here. And and so. I can do what i can do during this time. And at the same time. I can pass on that which came to me a seed as blossom and let somebody else planted intensive and that is so freeing and if i could go back and talk to a younger version of myself i would say it's okay to not like build the whole house. It's okay to lay a foundation and be satisfied it but it's so great that you can say that to your younger self when you're still only in your thirties. That's kind of evolutionary progress. I may be one of our gifts. Yeah of millennials But at the same time that you say that and your community are really holding the great civilizational challenges and crises there layers there's nuance to it. You just set because on the one hand. There's you can do what you can do. And i think you're also saying we must rest. We must love. We must laugh. That's what i wish somebody. I had been able to say to myself. I didn't. I didn't have permission for that. But you're saying it. You're also saying it because i feel eq- all see and you feel in your body's this is where it feels like an evolutionary advance to me that you are working with an inheritance of problems is too small word but problems and possibilities unrealized possibilities and inheritance of you know where you can count decades. You can count centuries right. Yeah and that you are all picking that up and you are going to carry forward in this generation and another reason. You need to stay. Rested is not just to be humble about the contribution you can make but because you see that this you are engaged in this huge work. One reason for that can only speak from the particularly of my experience pet. It was witnessing so many women in my mother's generation. Just be so tired and worn down. I think it might have been a result of sort of this second wave of feminism that like pushing to have it all push in place and the cognitive dissonance. I may argue that particularly the blackwood in my life. My mom was first in her immediate family to go to college like holding that tension of the sort of societal expectation or pressure. You can have it all you can have it all you can have it all in an post integration space. So my mom grew up in a in a segregated community in southern illinois alongside sort of way of knowing that particular lee as a black woman and your labor might be exploited. And you're expected to hold the entire your family and your community on your back and in my less generous more angry days where i so desperately want to pick up the phone and call her and asked a question about mothering. Knowing i can't do that i get mad. Get really really mad about the fact that she felt that pressure to carry the weight of her community on her back. And i wonder what implications that had for her long term health and so i wonder part of the shifting and prioritization of arrest in nurturing care is because we have inherited a legacy and in some cases of of overwork of of seeing the the deathly consequences of quote unquote productivity and also carrying a curiosity of what the the generational shift will be. Then for those who are coming behind us So if this might be one of the contributions of of this moment of the work that i'm up to in so many of my colleagues are up to about.

"To hold to hold hold each other tight because they think that there are there are ramifications of last year. That have yet to be felt and that can be scary for folks. Fear of the unknown is very real. Some i'm sitting with all of that and in my body right now. I've always found you so why about a about That about sitting attending to the breadth of experience. And i mean you are. You are a pastor right. It's a it's a pastoral sensibility. But what i've seen you do is is really offer it up to your generation you know and to our generation and time that i mean. I feel like that question that you asked me. I feel you really embody of seeing that. The work that the work that is upon us has been long in coming and it is. It is long it. It is the work of the rest of our life. I mean i. I i think you know i remember when i i was studying the bible when i went to seminary because there wasn't really just for well but reading the story of how moses doesn't make to the promised land and thinking that that was such a wrong ending okay. I just like that doesn't make any sense. And now that. I'm sixty and we're in this world or in i feel that's clearly at what i'm gonna do for the rest of my life. I will not see the end. The final fruits of and that is fine. And and and it's the way of things. But but i'm also partly able to just embrace that. Because i i see you right. I and so i wanna part of what i have to do is figure out how i can walk alongside you and be of service that i'm sitting on that reflection of the image of moses Not entering the and and i think in eighteen year old would like you have been very dissatisfied. Hack into the story Like you mean. I did all this work yet. Even see it can't see or i can't enter it. I should say. And i've been reflecting a lot lately about what is it. Has it been about my life experience. That has helped me see this long view at a relatively young age and i think Get like slightly moshe not. I think it's been my proximity to death Having lost my mom at twenty eight when she was sixty three years old having last three or four friends Women of color to suicide early twenties Two weeks after. I gave birth one of my best friends from high school died unexpectedly and experience walking with my mom her last few months a on earth when she was after battling cancer for fourteen years in walking with her and alongside her and feeding her and changing her caring for her and loving for her and being in the the room when she transitions. I think those experiences throughout the course of my life have allowed me an insight into just how precious and finally and short life can be and so the question becomes if our time on earth is not guaranteed. It's okay to just do what we can do over here. Joy it all we have And i wonder how much that might be. Reflected generational easily with other folks in particular of of young black folks in the us who had grown up alongside. And we're coming behind me who have seen death literally become spectacle he is. He's constant encounter with death via social media whether it be police shootings where other things that are. Now right in front of our eyes In given that we live in a culture in the us that is not do death. Well we like any any case I wonder if emerging out of this twenty twenty movement. There might be a reintregation of how we sit with death and grief Not as like just something that is sad. We dwell in Well it's also we don't dwell with the fact of mortality. That's what i'm trying to get at is that we live and then we die and i think it was tony morrison who who went said that like that might be the point of it all that there is something about the fact that we are mortal that there is a definite beginning middle and end to the ark of our lives. That is at once. That i wanna use is humbling but it also frees up so much it does allow us to have this generational view that like well. I'm here and when i am not going to be here. And and so. I can do what i can do during this time.

But at the same time that you say that hugh and your community are really holding the great civilizational challenges and crises. I mean i also feel like it's feel like it's their layers nuance to it. You just set because on the one hand. There's there's there's you you can do what you can do.

Peloton Reveals the Dark Side of Connected Fitness
"Say you bought a treadmill. Maybe during the pandemic when ginger closed. And you got a fancy one that connects to the internet then a few months later. You can't run on that treadmill because the company that makes it says you now need to pay for a membership to keep using your machine but you're thinking. Hey i bought this treadmill well when you buy any product that's connected to the internet. You don't necessarily have full control. Companies that make these products phones home security cameras smart speakers they can access these products and if they want change how they work that's happening to some peleton users right now and they are not happy about it. Here to explain is recode sarah morrison. Hey sarah he had so what's going on with peleton so a few months ago peleton acknowledged that child was pulled under one of their tread plus treadmills and killed and then last month there were reports of injuries that came out so the ended up recalling the treadmill so they stopped selling it let people return. There is for a full refund. Now we find out if you don't return your device you will have to pay for thirty nine dollars monthly membership or else. You can't use it at all. Most people presumably got the membership. Because that gives you pretty much full access to the machine like all the classes on the screen the app various metrics. But you could use a just run function and not have to pay for it at all. That is no longer available giving everybody three months free and then after that you're on the hook for thirty nine with a membership for forty three hundred dollar machine and this was the best solution peleton could think up the treadmills already. Come with a safety key that has to be inserted to use the treadmill. And you know people can remove it stored in a safe place and they're actually urged to do that so it's not. There wasn't a way to prevent unauthorized use or ready but peleton wants to add another mandatory safety feature with something called tread lock and that would take the human element of forgetting to remove the safety of the equation. You know it's there no matter what and they say the only way to put tread lock on all the machines is if you have a membership

Sure so i think of my rating as a bit dark a bit funny at times. I think i'm very interested in voice. So i tend to use a lot of first person though i've definitely expanded in the last couple of years to use more third person i am very interested in language in sentence level writings. So that's actually for me. One of the primary reasons i write and story is sort of secondary. So i'm interested in story and structure and all that but i love just like reading a good sentence in that so that i think translates into my rating. I really like spending some time. Crafting sentences that that maybe kind of mixed up poetry and prose. Yeah very much. So and i just finished reading her book strange shoulder and it was just so incredible. I act- i was mentioning it to her before the interview to and i can totally see the influences from like putting some poetry throughout it. So what not the idea to put poetry in the book in that way. I think i really am drawn to poetic writers like cormac mccarthy who has an epigraph in the book from him on tony morrison falconer hugest tend to have turns of phrases or ways of describing things that are just so original so i think that's. That's a huge kind of drivers. I like reading that kind of book about the kind of language based but also on their time in the book win. I just not very often. But i do kinda break.

Fourteen years studied at yahoo building platform on top of you and in a study contributing to open source project like the and that's how i joined the twitter data platform team. They are steady up at she parkway project and that led to contributing to the launch of the aba chiro project that you're on and morrison t i with the architect for the up a format. We work after that. I studied dedicated. Which i'm this show now and so you've actually been on the show. This is your third time now. So you were on to talk about your work with apache parque. And you're on with doug cutting. Who was the creator of astro. So that was a good conversation. And then you're also on talk about your work with marquez. Which is a natural transition to where you are now with. Data can which building on top of that platform so for folks who listened to the marquez episode. I don't know if you want to. Just give a quick recap about where that project has gone. And maybe what you're building on top of it with data again before we dig into open lineage. So you can from. When you build data platform it quickly becomes evident that she need an equivalent of service oriented architecture retro data pipelines like people consume data they produce data and by default israel egypt visibility. Where they did is coming from awards going and so we need to understand. We consume the data that we produce and how they impacted by the changes were may be doing and we understand where they did is coming from that. We're consuming how it's being maintained in deadwood right so that leads us to start the marcus project at we were so you building the data platform at work. That where's the need for. How do we understand in an organization where they are many teams that consumed produce data. How do they understand how they depend on each other. In our things change.

The FCCs Big Bet on Elon Musk
"Tucked away in the snowy woods of the colorado rockies is a cabin called wolf lodge. The cabin is about eleven thousand feet above sea level. It overlooks the surrounding mountains. And yeah it's pretty off grid. Cell service is thirty miles away. The closest landline five miles away. No power lines. No water lines sure hiccup here and there are no roads boston. The cabin does have high speed internet. The internet comes from starling. A satellite service developed by spacex. The company founded by elon. Musk and the. Fcc has made a one billion dollar bet on starlink. Sterling has the potential to change our skies and how we connect online but there are a number of challenges to overcome. If it's going to succeed here to explain starlink recruits sarah morrison. Hey sarah eight thirty. So we've had satellite internet for awhile for for decades right. What makes starling different than what we had before. So startling promises that it's going to provide faster and better satellite internet for the things that the pandemic really showed us. We need streaming video virtual meetings for like school doctors. Basically anything where you don't want to be a lag. Traditional satellite which is geo satellite is a couple satellites really high earth orbit and they're in a geosynchronous orbit basically move at the same speed that the earth rotates so they're sort of always in a fixed position. There's a couple of them they can cover a lot of the surface of the earth but because they're so high up there is that lad they have a reputation of being slow and expensive So what sterling does is what's known as the elliott internet basically which is they put like thousands of satellites in lower earth orbit And then they have inter connected constellation which means the other much closer to the earth. There's less lag. And i mean starling ca saying it can be cheaper to the consumer than you know. It's of geo satellite rivals At least for now and in the hope is that the communities that just can't get trishul broadband there to wrote to realistically connect them to anytime soon. If ever they'll still have access to internet that you know is just as good and be able to do the things that they need

"Pop ups. We love to hate them. We love to x. Them out ace app but in apple's long awaited update to its i o s operating system which came out this week. There's a new kind of pop up now appearing on iphones and ipads and it's actually one. You might end up appreciating especially if you're concerned about your data or your privacy here to explain is recode. Sarah morrison sarah teddy. So tell me about this pop up. What prompts it and what does it do. So this is a feature called app tracking transparency apt tracking transparency. Okay yes and how you might see it in the wild apps when you open them are supposed to present you with the prompt that asks if you want. Allow the app to track your activity across other apps or not. Okay so those are the two options. What happens if you click allow or not allow so you have two little bit. Get into how this tracking and basically cross app tracking powers like a huge part of the mobile app economy. It's how advertisers data brokers collect all the information about you that they use to then sell ads to you and what they do is they'll sneak trackers into like thousands of different apps and those are all connected to your device so if you have a smart tv remote app like a gas station. Finder app weather app. Menstrual cycle tracker app. Maybe not solvent for you teddy but others. Dating apps game apps shopping apps. Whatever all the stuff you do across all of them will go back to that. One company with the tracker which you can see gives it pre comprehensive profile of you and meanwhile you probably have no idea that this company was getting all that information about you in the first place and so. That's the profile that advertisers target ads to. So if you say do not allow. i don't wanna be trapped cross apps. Your device will not release this unique identifier. Which is what they use the connector activity across all the apps so basically the thing they use to target ads to you to get the profile to target ads to their cutoff from a major source of that information

But he just told me that at the end of the day I kind of I wanNA car my own path I said, listen I respect that and totally understand. So that's what he's GonNa do that I have three girls.

So thank you very much. We have a lot of people fooled. Brennan. It. Okay, boys. Does a lot of fun what a fun conversation with Brendan Morrison who as you mentioned in the outset of the podcast today Elliott really had to battle for respect but never got detoured never got sidetracked and never got down just put his head down played hockey persevered knew what he was worth stood up from self and I think probably looks back at his career and says, yeah, you know what? I played some hockey with some pretty cool players at a lot of fun along the way and I didn't take. A step backwards to anybody. Yeah, and that's the way it is like sometimes like I'm a big believer in polite but firm, right you know you can be a nice person and you can be polite to people. But when you feel that your mistreated or you're feel you're being disrespected, you can firmly just say you know what I'm not putting up with that I liked that I liked the way that Morrison Hal themselves he battled and he's simply just said I'm going to be here whether you like it or not and. Kind of the way I like to do things myself if anybody had hockey night in Canada took one of your sweaters Elliott and hung from the rafters at the hockey night in Canada's studio. How would you feel about that person? Would you be as angry as Matt? Cook was no at the rest of the Hickory connects Isla. That stuff just makes me laugh. They really make me laugh. and.

"Yeah. That's an interesting question. I've never really thought about it a whole lot but you know I think back to when we first were put together you know and kind of the opportunity I was given our our team was. Going through a little bit of A. Tough spell for about a week or ten days and came into Joe Louis Arena. One Morning Linus posted on the board and I walked in and did a double take because Andrew cassels usually centered marcus and todd and I walked in that morning and I saw my name there and I was like, Jeeze, here's my chance really like here's an opportunity to prove that I can play with these guys and. Later on I I don't know if this is a true story and I heard my coach from University of Michigan Red Berenson. talked to mark Crawford said listen give give Brennan chance with these guys like. You know he's played with all through college on I know it's different when you get to the NHL what he's played with the best players every everywhere he's gone in he has the ability to do that. So I don't know if that influence crows decision or not but had a chance and that night we went out and score a couple of goals align and they kept us together and we just kind of took off from there but. Some of the things that I remember is maybe not so much on the ice, but it's the off the ice on the bench stuff like how hard we were on each other. And challenging each other and. I remember there'd be times when. I would happen to score a goal, but it wasn't that often with those guys in become active the bench and they would announce it. You know goal scored by seven assisted by. Forty four and nineteen I remember todd one day looking at it looks. I don't ever WanNa hear that again. What do you mean man we just scored is next time that better say goal either scored by number forty, four or nineteen in assisted by seven. So. Little things like that where we're always chirpin each other but. You know we had a pretty good run there for a couple years and. I guess as an offensive player, it's a pretty neat feeling. Every time you step on ice just. thinking. You have a chance to score and feeling like you have a chance. That's a pretty good mindset to have and had that a lot of time playing with those guys I'm curious. was there a line that you took particular? Joy In scoring against that, when you guys got back to the bench after scoring in a certain line, you said your cells. That's sweet. We hate those guys. A couple guys while probably in Detroit there we used to play against you know draper and multi quite a bit in McCarty. This will anytime we had a pretty good ride Detroit. That was fun and against Colorado, it'd play head to head against Soccer Forsberg a lot a lot of times anytime. You could score against them it was satisfying and. You know defensively. Mash up against Lidstrom or even pronger because you know pre Oh, four or five or six or the lockout no four, zero, five, I mean Chris pronger was a bad man the ice right. you play against him and he'd come after the Games and you'd have like look like knife marks on your forearms. He'd get this stick in between that creature alborn your form, and you just be refund on you and you're like man, this is not fun. Fun But. So it's always nice to score against him. I'm glad you mentioned you know all the all the fun office to and their story that I was told by one of your teammates about McCook and a Christmas sweater. Do. You know the one that I'm talking about where he wore this ugly ugly Christmas sweater and you guys one day at practice hung it from the rafters at the rink. A is that true and B were you involved? It's a true story I remember vividly we had enough there and the best part about it was that cookie this sweater like you know I think he spent really good money on and he thought he looked so dapper and he came in the boys relate man, where'd you get that Horse Code from? Seizes and he was so poppy and then. I. Don't know I might add something that'd behind the scenes I didn't hang up on the router but we went out there for practice and guys are dying laughing right and he didn't always going on for the longest time and when he finally saw it, he was so mad he was snapping. Things, like that that you know that's what you really mess when you play all the inside jokes and that I was told the line was, hey, cookie they retired your sweater. Exactly, it's up in the rafters. I'd never see it again. That's Go ahead, free that's my best I. Don't know if I'm going to be able to beat that one well like. I wanted to ask you about two guys who are still very involved who were managers of yours at a particular time. First of all Lula, Morello is still going strong running the New York islanders and you got into a contract dispute with him early in your career in New Jersey and I don't think people. Now, this generation of fans understands what a big deal was for a young player like yourself to say, no to newland Morello in the new. Jersey devils at that time twenty years ago. Can you take us through that and like how nerve wracking was it for you? Brandon Y. Here, to death to be honest, I mean Lou is. Still. Conic figure in the game and has done so much for hockey and. I played it for. With the devils and the big joke there was when you joined the devil's it was like the movie, the Tom Cruise Movie, the firm right rancher in you don't get out. And you know every he knows everything that happens like you'd walk into the practice rink and he'd walk in the front doors and Mr Lamb Morello would be there. then. You go into the stick room and you'd be working on a stick and he like pop up in there and you're like man, how many of them are ladies everywhere this guy but Coming out of college on a two year contract. I'd pretty good rookie year had forty six points and season ended we have a conversation. Okay. We're GONNA take care of you the summary you're going into your next deal..

"Everyone along with Glenn, go right I'm Mike Emery. So last night, a telephone rang in Albany and Brendan Morrison picked it up and he discovered that he's going to be an NHL her in twenty four hours that twenty four hours past I'm sure kind of nervously and now he's actually out on the ice. Along with devils team and management are excited to see what Brennan Morrison could do under pressure at a great training camp. He's the type of player who's been a leader everywhere he's gone. He's very competitive and skill. Jacques Lemaire was saying tonight that He's GonNa. Play a regular shift. So if he's nervous it all he'll lose that in a hurry hurricane he could have deep a lot of playing time. So there's X.

Pleased to be joined. Now by former any cello Brendan Morrison, who joins US on thirty. One US the podcast Brennan much for stopping by first off before we get into all the hockey stuff covid beards as we record this interview Elliott is on day number one, hundred and fifty growing his Co. vid beard do you have or did you have a cove beard yourself? I did actually I mean it was nowhere near Elliott stature but the I, had one here for just over three months. And I kind of horrified the family and the kids, and then it grew on them like. Literally, and figuratively kind of grew on them and they liked it and then when I shaved it, they dad I you should should've kept it but. That's screen before after and it was horrendous Jeez what am I saying but Yeah, it was fun to do for a while he could get away with it. How much did you discover all man that was a? I don't know depressing was the word or maturity is the word, but there was a lot of gray in their absolutely wisdom. Here's Brandon Wisdom. Here's like that better. Yeah. Well, there's so many places I wanna go with you but you know I, I think we should start with Vancouver and the noxious won their first playoff round since two thousand eleven and how much of you've been watching and is that the team you cheer for the most? I follow them, and then because we're living in Calgary, I also follow the flamed fairly closely but. Vancouver when I think about you know my career and I look back on it that's kind of where I picture myself is as Vancouver canucks oh. So pretty close with the training staff there the medical staff. So yeah, I mean I think they have an exciting young team I mean Jeez these guys are are a lot of fun to watch and You know for a young team I thought they played very well that. Guess playing around if you call that and got good goaltending and special teams did the job and their top guys. Did. What they had to do they contributed on a nightly basis it was fun to watch. Elliot's Pederson reset things invent in Vancouver, and you know hit fast forward on the redevelopment programme there what was it like when you're in Vancouver and of course you're riding high with with Nazon to the West Coast Express and these two kids come over from Sweden Henrik and Daniel what was that experience like what what do you recall from the early days it was Kind of a phenomenal journey to watch these guys as it progress on in their career are very first training camp with them was two, thousand, two, thousand one and we actually had training camp in Stockholm that year. So we took essentially picked our team before camp. We had twenty five players at traveled over Stockholm and we were there for ten days and this was their first camp. So basically in their backyard in Sweden and you could tell right away these guys they're hockey sense is off the charts but. They weren't in great shape I mean they were kids. They were physically kind of pushed off the talk a little bit. You could tell they were off, they were gritty they. Were committed and they worked hard but they just. Missing, something but you knew they were going to be good players. And everything that they've gotten in their careers. You know do the fact that they've they've worked extremely hard for me ultracompetitive whether it's you know warming up playing soccer before a game or playing cards on the airplane I mean these guys are the ultimate competitors in hate to lose, and this was a phenomenal journey really to watch when you look at the twins and of course, your linemate Naslund, do you ever text them and say you guys were good but Pedersen's better than you guys are at this age I haven't gone down that road yet I'd be higher here with the reactions would be. While you know what I mean these guys being ultracompetitive but super humble I. mean they would I think they would agree with you I mean you look at both? Marcus and and nine on Henrik. I mean things weren't completely smooth at the beginning of their career obviously marcus starting at Pittsburgh there and kind of finding his way and and getting dealt early in his career in the. you know really taking a lot of heat in Vancouver through from the media and fans early on but just really putting their nose to the grindstone and you know when we come back for testing every training camp I mean these guys were. Initially, guys that weren't anywhere near the top but. After a couple of years where they'd come in, they'd be at the top of all the testing categories nearly holy smokes like I mean just lottery spectrum with these guys did. It seemed as if to I, mean, they had the right attitude for sports not too high not too low didn't get harmed by criticism didn't fall into any hype either like they were the ultimate. Zen. Hockey players. That's the way it seemed to us. Were they like that in the room as well? Yeah. They were. You're right. There is no peaks and valleys right? It was even keel all the time and really for these guys early in their career, it could have been easy for them to say, Hey, listen we're not being treated fairly or you know people are being too hard. On us but they never said a word, they would just come to the rink and work every day to get better and I mean that's a sign of you know a leader right somebody who wants to be a leak and these guys were that as good at hockey players as they are. They're even better people off the ice and I know that that's hard to believe. What's your favorite West Coast Express memory like when you think West Coast Express..

Morrison of the West Coast Express. We'll. Obviously he's a very brave man. Yes. You know I like covering more Brennan Morrison when he played. You. Know I started the CBC at Hockey, night in Canada I think the West Coast Express was kind of in their prime and I didn't deal a ton with them because okie would do the west and I would do the East but I dealt with them enough that. I really enjoyed dealing with Morrison I think sometimes he had to battle for respect on that line but I don't think it ever really phased them a great deal and talk a couple of the stories like he's pretty funny about it. But I think the one thing that I kind of admire about him is that whatever you thought of him, he just persevered and he just played and that's all you can do. Yeah going face to face with two of the toughest general managers and retiring Matt Cooks Sweater in. Vancouver. Oris next as we.

"Shame it was somebody who was very close to our families who was abusing me but this book was a place that I could dive into to really just like to to process. I just kept thinking like Oh. This is the thing that happens to people and and it's obviously very bad but also it will not destroy you like I think that for me. That was the overarching feeling. It made me feel like less alone. Every time I pick up that book. It's something that it hits me like a ton of bricks. Every time senior life mirrored that way in a book it's a powerful experience and as I got older older and got to know the rest of Morrison's work. She realized it was bigger than anyone story. It was a whole way of thinking about what stories could be and they were for you know just how much pleasure and pride and urgency she took in the fact that she wrote about black people for black people. I'm thinking about the interview that I like. I watch should all the time on Youtube and now I can't think about who the interviewer is but actually who cares interview whereas the Clippers Muniz talking about from an interview Tony Morrison did in Nineteen Ninety eight with the Australian alien journalist Yana vent vent who was white looks very serious as she turns to Tony Morrison and says this. You don't think you will ever change and right books. That incorporate wide wide lives into them substantially. I have done in a substantial. You can't understand how powerfully raise the question any as you could never ask a white author when you're gonNA write about black breath he did or not or she did even in curry comes from a position of being in the center and being used to being in the same gene used to being and saying you know. Is it ever possible that you will entered into mainstream. It's inconceivable that we're I already am and she really just like flips the question on its head and she's it's always like you never like all of the questions. I got sent her white people and actually like no like yeah like that's racist and I she's like I center myself and I sent her black people in my work. There's nothing wrong with that and I was like this is true. It's like I think about the you know. The cannon that I read in college on High School and and Tony Morrison pointed the she's like you know like nobody's he's asking tolstoy like writing for like. Are you writing for you know like for young. Russians is only for Russian. I it sounds and so I you know like I'm obviously making light of it and being a little flippant but I think that for so many of us that was that was game changing you know and she she never shrank. She wasn't provocative. She wasn't you know she was just telling the truth about who she was and and I really appreciate about it. Always seems particularly unfair that when someone dies they're not around to help you through their death the one person you don't get to hear talk about. Tony Morrison dying his Tony any Morrison but death something she came back to again and again in her writing after the break a ghost story this up so the nod is brought to you by borough with the cold weather starting to creep in TV shows returning.

Can you talk about how it went from the seed of an idea that she planted to what became attorney wanted to do. Black divas and i'm not an opera lover particularly enough that i would wanna. They do a whole project on opera but it started me thinking about just sort of african american talent in general that there was more than just oprah and barack obama they were all these other people that we could maybe interview and my idea then which now everyone does but was to do this sort of direct to camera <hes> talk where the where the subject is looking right at camera and it's just a very powerful way to do it. In those days earl morris was doing it. A couple of other filmmakers used it but it was rare and it was also my portraiture come to life so if you look at my portraits they're always director cameras single light source and it kinda gray backdrop so i wanted to turn that into film and one of the tricks. It's not a trick. One of the ideas here was that tony talks to camera. Only everyone else hilton ails right here. Second-row talks off camera <hes> they talk about tony and and i thought that could work. I've never seen it in documentary but the the main subject is looking at us and we have a kind of connection that way and then the others are talking thing about her and <hes>. How did you convince johnny morrison if it took convincing to do this film devoted to her you know i think when when the first blacklist film came out we all sat around thinking everyone in this film deserves a feature film this you know there's so much there's so many interesting stories and talents but tony was always the first in my mind tony was the first is set for the blacklist so oh it also a couple of years ago i realized tony was eighty four eighty five eighty eight now that if i'm gonna do it this time and i reached out to her and we talked about it and she you know she didn't say no and that's always a good sign in with tony and that really gave me the courage to cut it fine the funding and go back to her and say i have the money to do it in this was it's gonna be on television or the american masters was the idea back then it became because of sundance film that will now be in theaters. We're very excited with magnolia <hes> but i think tony you trusted me to do it. So what was the the process of interviewing her like. Sandra guzman who is credited in the film did the interviews didn't feel that i i am enough of tony scholar to do the interviews sandra drives a car that says soula on the license plate so at in love's tony deeply and really <hes> <hes> was very very eager to do this film and supportive and <hes> you know you who director you kind of create a space where everyone feels comfortable <hes> we. We did that the interviews the tony at her home so we set up apple studio. They're essentially a backdrop and did them there where she was more comfortable..

I although we working I'm working hard but I did feel like it was it was really exciting to be backing Guernsey and so I thought I wanted to read was something that would be a a contrast to the we were there to discuss and also with Tony Morrison how is reading in preparation for this episode and so I chose a book that was published last Austria and which has just come out in paperback by Porac O'Donnell called the House on vesper sands now. Do you know anything about this noble. No right it sent in the winter of eighteen ninety three and as it Stoltze unclear what is going on what you know is that a seamstress mysteries has been invited into house in Mayfair that something isn't right that she has stitched something into her on skin and that before the chapter is out so spoilers on the first chapter she's committed suicide cranky and and this. This book got me within about six pages. Really you know I'm a fan on this podcast grunting away about the things he's having too much plot. I have a slightly queasy relationship with how I feel about plot. This is just the right amount of plots. You can put that on Makamba. House presents has just the right man. I thought it was absolutely wonderful a fantastic mixture of a detective novel and and a Ghost Story and a horror fiction and it seemed to me very consciously Porac O'Donnell is bringing in Wilkie Collins and Dickens and CONAN doyle not just in Sherlock Holmes Not GonNa read a bit in a minute with detective detective but also CONAN Doyle's interest in the paranormal in spiritualism is reflected in this book. It reminded me of the woman in black by Susan Hale it reminded me of the TV series Ripper Street John Young Roy so he has that really real energy and Sousse of Victorian Baroque but it's thrilling and stylish and it's also really funny. It has some really wonderful set pieces and then he manages to do that thing that I think lots of people trying to write this kind of noval would like to do but perhaps is more challenging than one might think that he's able to shift gear from the modes of storytelling quite brilliantly. I must say that you go from something which is making you laugh and then two pages lacy. I say you're absolutely horrified by what you're being presented with and really. It's a wonderful wonderful but never goes what you think is going to do it. Warden is a kind of Victorian Victorian so so so here's a little bit. This is a discussion between inspector cutter and a servant in the house where the seamstress has committed suicide. He is called Karoo but first we hear from Inspector Cutter Inspect Custody says now will you be an obliging obliging fellow and show us to the particular room in the upper part of the house where this misfortune occurred it was a room I take it and not a chimney or nest in the eaves for the good inspector inspector but I hope you will refrain from any further levity for you. Find us all greatly saddened. Waters occurred levity inspector cut his face darkened and and he clamped his hand for a moment over his jaw for an instant Gideon imagine that some predatory creature looked within a might burst from him at any moment like an unrooted Hawk from its perch levity. Will you tell me Carroo. Do you keep an eye to the newspapers tool on occasions as my duties permit it. Did you ever read the case of the children of doctors and John. The slow through the Jones carries is widened but he checked himself almost at once. I believe I saw some mention of it and do you recall how many children isn't Jones had and what ages were not to an exactness inspector. I would not have had the leisure to five there. Were five since John Children. The eldest was Antony a boy of thirteen and the youngest was Matilda. Matilda was a babe of fifty months and was still nurse at the time per day. Do you know how it is that I come to know that Noah inspector how could I you could naught and I will do you the kindness of keeping it from you for sure you it is a thing that would never leave you but I will tell you this much. I know their names and their ages I know the color of each one's hair and I could give you a litany of every scrap of clothing that was on them. It was I who made the photographic plates that was shown to the jurors. Since the Frenchman we depend upon in the normal course would come no further than the head of the stairs. Did you know carry that the adult take a small child of formed in her jaw long before the milk teeth and lost. I did not inspector yes. It's a remarkable thing they hidden away until recall for in a tiny imperfect ray the workings of nature a puzzle and I suppose I have been fortunate to have glimpsed them as others have not it but you may be certain of this much Karoo if I had any great store of Merriment when I went into that house and I suspect I had note if the truth be known then it was gone for me and Tali when I came out and it has never troubled me again so I I thoroughly enjoyed that. That's out in paperback. Many of you might be able to have a holiday this year if you do. I I strongly recommend the House on Vespa Sans Bright but now we have to move onto the main event which is beloved put by Toni Morrison. I thought maybe we would hear from Tony Morrison herself. We're going to hear from her a few times but I thought maybe she could read to us. This is from about fifty pages into the novel and it's where the character of beloved makes her first appearance. A fully dressed woman walked out of the water. She barely gained the dry bank of the stream before she sat down and leaned against a mulberry tree all day and all night. She sat there her head resting on the trunk in a position abandoned enough to crack the Bram in her straw hat everything hurt but her lungs most of all sopping wet and breathing shallow. She spent spent those hours trying to negotiate the weight of her eyelids. The day breeze blew her dress dry the night when wrinkled it nobody saw her emerge or came accidentally by if they had chances are they would have hesitated before approaching her not because she was wet or dozing or had what sounded like asthma but because middle that she was smiling it took her the whole of the next morning to lift herself from the ground and make her way through the woods past giant. Temple of Boxwood to the field and in the yard of the slate gray house exhausted again she sat down on the first hand he place a stump not far from the steps of one twenty four by then keeping her eyes open was less of an effort she she could manage it for a full two minutes more her neck. Its circumference no wider that policy service saucer kept the bending and her Chen brushed the bit of lace edging her dress prissy. I mean we're all sitting here. sleigh stunned by actually hearing that read aloud what are the qualities of Toni Morrison's pros that you can hear just in that one paragraph well when I listen to that power groff. I'm listening for all of the things make her work and her sentences in her language so exciting and you know what she's doing that is she's compressing language and distilling language to multiple meanings in every sentence so when you have this idea of the trunk then you're thinking not just about the tree trunk but you're thinking about the body parts of the body that we call the trunk so then you imagine that this young woman with this huge effort drags herself to this. House this mysterious young woman she sits down on the first thing she sees an. It's a tree stump so that part of her body which is trump actually becomes the next part of the tree and it's done so carefully and soaked easily and so beautifully it just happens at the back lack of your brain as a reader you just take that in and you just read. Is that somehow this the writer who can vote how much how much the human world and the natural world just few fused together then this will say this idea that this trunk has been that she's sitting on a stump a trie and that is his just exactly what her own story is. I don't want to ruin it for readers. You haven't read the book but it's a ghost story and this young woman has has had a violence done to her. She's grown out of into the ghost which has to do with axes and cuttings and of course the tree is very resonant in the context of this novel. It's the slavery novel. It's a place where a tree can be both the site of great an awful violence against is black bodies where bodies hung and it can also be something very sheltering and that idea of the tree and reclaiming the shelter the tree becoming something that takes nurture is is part of this book. It's ingrained in this book so it's got a lot of the layers of meaning Tony Morrison never ever straight from connecting the body through its experiences what she shows us to material objects either so when she talks about this neck as the size of a saucer we're in the parlor with something balancing really eighty gently and this such dread in the idea of the axe and this trembling and it's all there in that tiny paragraph that we just Harry I I read this novel in two thousand six and I read it as one of the books for for my uh-huh dangerously and I can remember reading that specific paragraph which is one of the reasons why we heard it. They're thinking how in a way preceived just explained it really anyway anyway was how is she doing that. How is she marrying lyricism and horror horror.

"You really don't Jennifer Morrison. This has been a real treat. I I'm glad you came on the show. Thank him on the show to you. When you come back Clarice, you will. Yeah. No problem where can people reach on Instagram Twitter? Jen Morrison live with one end so j e n Morrison live and what about Instagram or Twitter, all Jim Morrison live. It was because I launched my Twitter to it. Was it Twitter Israel. I can't remember which but on Jimmy Kimmel live like ten years ago or something. So that's where the gen Morrison life. Oh nice. Yeah. Yeah. And what's next? You're you're looking to direct again. Yeah. Well, I'm developing that project with Sony. I'm attached to an indie film that I'm trying to kind of figure out when I want to put my. Foot on the accelerator with and then I've been offered a couple of things as an actor offers all the time. Every week. No, no, not every week for other week. Well, I don't know. I mean, there's a lot of things I don't know about to like there's only certain things that just turned down to me. Yeah. What's the most recent thing you turn down? Well, no. I mean, the most recent thing was not a direct offer yet. It was like if you sit down with them, this will be an offer. And I wasn't ready to go back to TV. Yeah. But I'll I'll get there. It's just I just I need some time. Do well. I like hearing you say that when's the next time you're gonna take two week vacation. It was supposed to be right now. But that went away, unfortunately because of the Sony stuff. Yeah. The Sony step podcast came up. And I just know. I mean things come up that are so tricky, you know, it's like the the Sony thing where you just don't know when certain deadlines or certain opportunities are going to help, and you feel like you have to deal with it as it comes. And then you know, I was just talking to my agents today about a project that's for Showtime. That sounds amazing and is one of those things that I would have. To chase a little bit. But I feel like we're gonna pilot. It's no it's a limited series. It's an eight episode many CEOs, the one that takes place in like, Atlanta or something I don't know any. This phone call on my way here. But it was just, you know, it's very rare for them to call and be like, we feel really strongly. This is a great next move. You know it, and it's not an offer. But I have a lot of people in my corner on it. And it would be a smaller fight than other fights, you know. And so then just having to decide like, okay, am I even just to decide if I want to fight for it? I still have to read the scripts I have to do read scripts pretty quickly. I do reading scripts. I mean, yes, and no I don't like getting backed up and having a pile of them to work through. I don't like having things like hanging over me that I feel like I need to get done. I'd like to just like kind of have stuff taken care of. And I think you should just did you ever feel like you're having a nervous breakdown? I definitely had those moments. I mean, I'm not having one now on this podcast. I hope not you ever feel like I'm overwhelmed right now. I just can't do this. I'm directing I'm writing I'm producing them this journaling. I'm getting up two hours early. I'm in the best shape of my life. I can't I my extra free freeze the frozen freeze. I graduated from western Kentucky. All right. So I mean, yeah, you probably have to have those. That's why I'm saying it's not a bad idea to say agents. I'm taking a little break. Don't call me in the Spielberg's him. Right. Two weeks. Give me two weeks to see. Sometimes it's hard because it's not even the agents that are calling like today it happened to be. But like sometimes it comes directly to me because of the relationships that you develop in the industry. So it's like there's not a really a way to have a firewall against it. You know, what I would do if I were dating you. If I was your boyfriend saying, yeah, I would just say, hey. Righty Saturday, Sunday, or whatever three days just going up the coast..
