"How many great whites will show up in Cape Cod waters. In essence, what they're doing is they're just using search patterns that they've developed to seek out. Potential prey items that in doing so they come upon Cape Cod where you've got a lot of setting the water from these seals. In the past few years Normal and his team from the White Shark Conservancy have tagged nearly 200 of these apex predators. And the researchers have learned a lot like where most of the white sharks go in the winter. But they say it's the human visitors. Who needs some education there.

Young Great White Sharks Eat Off the Sea Floor: Study
"Of a Dorsal fin cutting through the surface is iconic. But scientists studying the stomach contents of young great white sharks off the coast of Australia. We're in for a surprise. When they learned that the predators seemed to spend a lot of time, patrolling the sea floor. They have predominantly fish based diet, which is not unexpected for juvenile watch shocks, the most important price basing we have been fibers Australian Salmon University of Sydney Graduate Student Richard Grainger. He and his team sorted through the stomach contents of more than fifty juvenile white sharks that died after being entangled. Entangled in shark exclusion, nets meant to protect swimmers. The expected finding was just the diversity and importance of bottom dwelling species, things like stock cases which their selves in the Santa Quite strange, looking fish and flathead, but also seeing rights, people actually did not have a good idea of the particulars of great white shark diets as Grainger points out the sharks enjoy protections throughout the world, so most researchers estimated their diets through the chemical markers that they can ethically access by taking small skin samples. These measurements indicate at what level of the food chain the predators feeding, but not the actual critters that make up their meals. That's quite a lot of evidence that lots of different animals, so even cannibals noble have proposed self select different prey foods based on a particular balance of nutrients. Grainger hopes that by further understanding. WHAT JUVENILE WHITE SHARKS TO EAT! He can begin to piece together. How and why they make? Make their predatory choices. The study was published in the Journal Frontiers in Marine Science on the sanding and predicting when shocks might be more abundant in certain areas would be an end goal, avoiding or mitigating human shark conflicts means understanding the sharks nutritional goals, and if researchers can anticipate, where, and when sharks are likely to spend their time hunting, they can better protect humans from getting bid and sharks from getting killed.
Moby Dick Chapter Eight
"Welcome back to another episode of Church history. Last week we were talking about the pulpit that Latin Word Putnam, and that object that appears in so many churches. Well, we also find the pulpit, appearing in of all places that great American novel by Herman, Melville none other than moby. Dick Moby Dick has one hundred and thirty five chapters. They have fascinating names like the shark massacre and interesting names, two of the chapters in particular come early in the book that have great names chapter nine is entitled the sermon. Sermon, Chapter Eight is entitled The pulpit so this is Melville's description of a pulpit of a fabled new. England church, it's sort of a conglomerate picture that Melville is putting together. And of course they are about to go out to sea questing after the great white whale, and before they go, all the sailors will show up that. Sunday in church to hear that sermon before they're sent off to see, and they might not come back again well. This is chapter eight on the pulpit. Let's read Melville's description. He tells us how he's sitting there. In the Pew of the Church and Father Maple comes in, and then he starts walking towards the pulpit. Melville says like most old fashioned pulpits. It was a very lofty one and since. Our stairs to such a height would by its long angle with the floor seriously constrict the already small area of the chapel, the architect it seemed had acted upon the hint of Father Maple, and finish the pulpit without a stairs, substituting a perpendicular that is straight up and down side ladder like those used in mounting ship from a boat at sea. The wife of a whaling captain had provided the chapel with a handsome pair of red ropes for this latter. Halting for an instant at the foot of the ladder, and with both hands, grasping the ornamental knobs of those red ropes, Father Maple cast a look upwards, and then with a truly sailor, like, but still reverential dexterity hand over hand, mounted the steps as if ascending the main top of his vessel. Melville continues, nor was the pulpit itself without a trace of the same seat taste that had achieved the latter. It's paneled front was in the likeness of shifts, bluff bows and the holy. Bible rested on a projecting piece of scroll work fashioned after a ship's fiddle headed beak. What could be full of more meaning Melville asks. For the pulpit. Is Ever this Earth's foremost part? All the rest comes in its rear. The pulpit leads the world from thence. It is the storm of God's quick. Wrath is first descried, and the bow must bear the earliest brunt. From thence it is the god of breezes. Fair or foul is I invoked for favourable winds. Yes, yes, the world's a ship on its passage out not a voyage complete, and the pulpit is its prow. Well, that's from the pen of Melville. What a fascinating line he gives us. Did you hear it in that last paragraph I read and the pope it leads the world. Well. That's chapter eight. The pulpit from Melville's great novel. Some have called I. Know Dr Sprawl often called it the great American novel Moby Dick or The whale.

Miami - Florida shark attacks drop during coronavirus pandemic
"Shark bites in Florida waters globally are down dramatically this year Tyler bowling manages the international shark attack file a U.

Jaws 45th Anniversary And Power Ranking Spielberg
"Welcome to film spotting. Josh, we've done our share of top five over the years five hundred or so, but when it comes to power rankings, we are mere novices. We did this for the first time two years ago. Almost to the day, we power ranked the Chris's Anna the. Moments history of film spot right episode six, Eighty six Oh, surely one of our more significant shows. And this week we're going to power rank the five decades of Steven Spielberg's career. Maybe someday will power rank our power rankings. Come to that. So little preview. Was this tougher than you thought you know? There's two ways to go about this I think initially we both thought just of look at the filmography, and and get on the mic and kind of riff where we think things are, or you sit down and chart things you move them around. You have tears. Which of course is what I think? We both ended up doing so yeah. It was a little bit more of a project than I anticipated, but a rewarding one. Yeah, I put in the work on it. Because I knew it was going to be hard enough deciding which decade put first. and which would slot right behind it? I didn't think it would be so hard with the other decades actually, and then after spending a good deal of time on it I actually ended up flipping two decades around that I thought were set in stone. So I'm excited to get to that, and we'll share listeners power rankings of the Spielberg decades as well we have. Their poll results a bit later I though the beaches are open, so let's talk ause. There is a creature alive today. WHO has survived millions of years of evolution? Without Change. Without Passion. And without logic. It lives to kill a mindless eating machine. It will attack. And Devour. Anything. It is as if God. Created the devil. Gaping. Jaws. Sometimes. Probably often we have a convenient hook for one of these setups that doesn't really reflect the whole substance of our conversation about a movie, but a convenient hook is a convenient hook, which is all to say for those of you who aren't particularly interested in hearing a discussion of jaws framed around our current administration. Just give us a little wiggle room. Here I'm pretty confident, were both more excited to talk about Steven Spielberg's camera tricks then his politics, but it's a little. Little Eerie how prescient his game changing nineteen seventy-five blockbuster is forty five years later. The movie The promise will never go in the water again also presents an all too dangerously familiar type of huckster politician, a crisis who fails to heed the warnings of scientists dramatically downplays and dismisses the potential loss of life can't wait to pat himself, and his cronies on the back loves to PREEN FOR A TV camera and who demands those beaches be open because business demands. They be open. Sorry even the scary shark movie is actually about Corona. Virus and I'm far from the only one who noticed my twitter timeline has jumped the snark over the past couple of months including this from frank rich just a few nights ago. Commenting on a New York Times breaking news tweet read Vice President Mike Pence encourage governors to repeat a misleading claim about corona virus outbreaks rich wrote. Pence makes the jaws mayor look like Churchill. Mayor. Von is played with a pen. See an affable smugness by Murray Hamilton and one line I'd always kind of overlooked. This struck me on. This rewatch is when he's spurning. The please of Roy Scheider is chief Martin Brody and Richard Dreyfuss is Matt. Hooper to keep the beaches closed on July Fourth America's Day, to celebrate its independence and preeminence. Any explains I. Don't think either one of you are familiar with our problems.
Premier League back with doubleheader after 100-day shutdown
"Premier league soccer is back this league in Germany had been back for a couple of weeks MLS deal is said to back low Liga just came back from Spain but now we have the UK's premier league beginning Tuesday which is the most popular league in the world at all their matches will be broadcast here in the states of the NBC sports family of networks one of the most popular soccer podcast here stateside is the caught offside podcast and it it's a phenomenal weekly look at all of soccer that includes international soccer and the here the state's MLS soccer it involves international competition and all of the leagues around the world they just do such a good job every time he joins us here on the show so many of our listeners absolutely love his sock reed said even if they're not soccer fans my friend J. J. devante joins us this morning J. J. good morning Hey what is going on are we supposed to be talking about your twenty twenty at the summer I should be in studio what you're wearing a flowery sharks and instead it's what seven o'clock in the morning on drinking a Cup of tea talking about the premier league back in June none of this makes sense I know it's so aggravating that we we are not on the normal soccer schedule or the normal sports schedule but such is life and today the the premier league's return follows the Buddhist leaders returning that was one of the first leagues to come back what is been your early impressions of the way that Buddhist league has returned and one of their biggest evasions which was the fox broadcast pumping in the crowd noise even though there's no fans in attendance I haven't wanted to get back at D. is beyond believable it it's being largely enjoyable except the inevitable happened on Bayern Munich have won it and I think a lot of that this team has gone out of it a little bit as for the the crowd noises and and that of being pumped in I mean we've got a mixed reaction from people on there are the purest they hate this but to be honest with you typically the Germans have done it in a way where even I you would just before the game to be played let's not pretend they're found in the stadium it is what it is I even being won over by it in the in the Bayern Munich Borussia Dortmund game they got things down to such a fine level of ice boys broadcasting back when there was a tackle and I free kick was given against Borussia Dortmund's working Dorman were supposed to be playing at home but there was no home fans they had the perfect noise for the fans jeering the referee so whoever is operating the system in the Bundesliga again as set such a high standard for anybody else to follow on to try and get right they were pitch perfect when the ball hit the back of the net the crowd noise sounded as close to what it would sound like in a real game which stands full of supporters saw that I mean the Bundesliga's got it right in terms of of having you know just soccer back to give the watch a diplomacy has been great D. A. it's been really good to watch now look one thing I I'm about to start reading an article that just just being dropped this morning by a journalist in England who said on average there's been more individual errors and mistakes since the bonus **** restarted in the stadiums without fans so that's really interesting to me if there isn't fans in the stadium because of course the players on the field they can't hear those fake crowd noises if there if there isn't style at fans in the stands does not affect the concentration levels and that the article basically says Dr probably be a lot of mistakes on the restart in the premier league which I mean mistakes are full and that's the honest and that's a fascinating psychological question if we're watching on TV it feels normal to us because as you said they're doing such a good job with riding the levels of the crowd noise it also they've had signage around the lower bowl of the stadium so we don't see a lot of the empty seats but that if the players themselves are creating or for making more mistakes because they're not as focused have you noticed that it's been sloppy play watching the Buddhist legal or even to your train die it hasn't really been all that evidence I honestly don't think I have noticed it per se what I have noticed this kind of a drop off in intensity a little bit I so you know that I suppose that's natural after a three month layoff when players come back that it's not quite as intense but I'm wondering if you play a pressing style of soccer if you're looking to press the full back the defender when he's in in possession of the ball just the crowd kind of carry you along on that because they'll be involved in that process you know they'll be screaming that bit harder they'll be shouting Baptist longer during the price when you went back then there's a big surge of excitement does this all key players heightened and when that isn't there does it slightly become a training exercise in the that there's another point is that it's such a leveling what we believe crowded you know crowd noises on taxes on Kroger such a leveling concept in soccer for example one paramedic one to play Niamh Berlin I think it was nil nil and only on had a chance to get a penalty that wasn't given and with no crowd noise if you imagine the jeering the hostility you know the referee would probably be you know under pressure although they had a video assistant replay maybe he's under a little bit more pressure but you know fourteen like union Berlin who are not a big side burn unit coming into town one of the things that they can do is have a really hostile crowd in a small stadium right on top of the field and they didn't have that and at four thirty if for example are shaving off ten percent of their there I suppose in their modeling for away games in the premier league ten percent because there will be no fans so obviously it's significant J.

"The white male might be able to within the white community or throughout throughout the whole world, and you'd have concert arguments, which kind of feel commonsense where you say what structures what powers can a black man call on to oppress anybody which is kind of like what was Straw man arguments, though yeah so strong. You don't have to make Straw man arguments show white patriarchy. It's. Written in books, it's on your dollar bill, so you know, but to show black no patriarchate, you have to create almost like a movie because they put it in movies like Harry Potter movie so yeah. Yeah the fake character in there. There's something called the black privilege checklist that they came. They came up with the black, not privilege checklists and it and everytime. We have these arguments. It this check. This gets thrown at you and it's very laughable like these are some of the privileges. A privileged like black men have is is the black church, but that's not really a str- like you don't have to go to church. Yeah, you don't have you don't have to go to church. A lot of a lot of weird. Okay here it is I. Don't have to choose my my.

Exactly to do, and you mentioned that in the book about how black people are only allowed to do what or be what The white imagination allows for them to be exactly what you know, it's interesting you said that to you the way you just said that cause reminds me of something that the comedian d.l Hughley said he said the last place. A black person wants to exist a white person's imagination. Let's rancher. and. Miss Miss. Phrasing what you see in Africa pessimism, but I feel like you can't saying that we almost have no choice. The Way Society structured, but to exist in a white person nations, imagination, which I think is a very hard thing for people to kind of deal with what we know, a lot of people and and I was talking about this. A lot of people think that descriptive almost prescriptive. Prescriptive, so for example Kenny and I always talk about these people who are pro black. You talk about white supremacy. They'll be like I. Don't know about you. Bring the white man supreme over me.

"Believe in black privilege you know somebody might be doing that. overcompensating thing the bootstraps thing and then I think what you describe is surrender. Surrender is like a hyper acceptance. It's it's except Vince, but it's acceptance to a toxic degree, so it's like that person has so when I say that person is accepted their blackness better than the bourgeois person. It is better to accept or face reality than to deny it, but they kind of take the reality of the situation I think to some degree they're more intuitively in line with what afro-pessimism describes. They've just kind of surrendered to it. As in like This is just what it is, and I'm going to, so I can't imagine myself being X. Y. or Z. the way the way you described or I'm going to accept the images that are on that TV the tell me that being rapper or being a cop or being a sportsperson.

We can't help it and we need to be kinder ourselves when this happens so that we don't end up condemning ourselves while we're trying to work out of it. You know what I mean. Yeah, yeah, exactly, but I think some people think that you describing this stuff is akin to condemning the same way of Kenya right say premises real. Someone's going to be like Oh are you saying you know back in which is give up, you know and it's like. But but Li- lying about you situations not help anything either. Exactly that is the point that is the point. Let me ask you this based on how you view I feel like right now. A lot of what you talk about is being tested or exposed in real time. a lot of it from some minorities are turning against black people while some people seem to be waking up like I've I've seen actual? Tinos and Asian people and different people say things like no. This is not Black Brown. This is a black problem. treating it like one which I never thought I'd see in my lifetime I was very surprised. I saw on social media. I saw gay people saying. Yes I have problems, but being black is a very unique problem. And you know it's nowhere close and really end this level of violence visited on on the black body, and I was very surprised to see that being some you see everyone piggybacking on our movements, and I don't know if he's just isolated cases that people are just blasting on social media, but it something about what's happening right now is really handling.

There is a researcher in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine for six weeks, and then six weeks in nineteen, ninety, having won a literary award to write a novel I ended up staying through state of emergency all the way almost two years past the all race elections, and I was the second black American to hold elected office in the African National Congress it would be.

2020 F1 season: No reverse grids for double-headers
"Talked about this last week, but it's been confirmed now that reverse grids will not be happening at the double header this year because Toto Wolff is not into them. He's apparently the only dissenting voice that required unanimity and Formula One fell one short as a shame authority I thought he would be an all for that. You know he's talked about these issues in the one where? He has provided on things for the greater good. Decisions that may not necessarily be the best for for his team, so in this instance. Sort of gone against that one little bit hasn't even as given three reasons which we didn't have last week, so let's consider them three very specific reasons, reason number one that is formula a meritocracy and this would be a gimmick. Which look I understand on one level because it is very arbitrary, just reverse secret especially when there is such a big performance disparity I mean. Let's be honest. That means Williams is going to be starting on the front row with agreed every double header. And that does look a bit silly. When the wheels of Folding Company and they've decided. Yeah, but I, I think people are now beginning to unravel an inherent problem with qualifying represents. Your qualifying at the Front of the grid to get. Not even to get ahead. What is qualifying? Is it to get a head start on the foster 'cause, or is it basically an order of which you'll car is better than everyone. Else's so therefore you also get more of a headstart than everyone, but then I'm going to be able to catch you anyway, and then therefore you know. Come the groom furry. We don't have a spectacle of saying the best car. We. We literally say the best car being the car, and while that might be nice for Lewis. Hamilton NFL bought has depending on the time of day. It. The rest of the shark doesn't it doesn't really matter so everyone's having a bit of an existential cross whether pay a boiling it down so well. Is this entertainment or sport that we're after? Wouldn't it be? Form One, just adopt the model of trading itself as the ultimate speed comparison. They have it some grown pretty well. You do all this relations on practice actually with wile, maybe Rendu like a sprint rice ingred order not in reverse order, and then just figure out how long how much quicker the Mercedes than the red bull, how much quicker the red believes in the Ferrari and just. Just place them several laps pot, and so the idea is that on the final lap they'll end up crossing the line at about the same time, and you'll have a great. Fini the other thing is i. think everyone has caught up with the history of what qualifying is I mean people always do the direct comparison of all man as instead of had x amount of pole position. We Wanna piece on that sort of history well. Things evolve and and things change. So you know we we you capable of open open-minded Tim's of what? The one he's going to look like.

Go to rebel know. Well let me think yeah. You know what that's pretty much it. I don't want to be a big house today. And we have with us as guest co host Andrea. Wait can you actually? Okay Yeah. That's Andre thoroughly everything to introduce. It's just it's it's just me me and these through the streets okay. Cool and We have with us our guest Matt from Chapel Trap House. I is happy to be here and on the off chance that people know who to Chapel Trap House says because now it is isn't like before everyone who came to the show that new sometimes like we get people who have no idea where any inside baseball is when we talk about it so now I tried take nothing for granted and so just Give the elevator pitch to Chapel Trap House. Well if you like politics and you like comedy I might have a podcast for you Me and my friends Felix Will Amer. Sometimes I like to get around the old cracker barrel and talk the news of the week through kind of cockeyed. Blam said the headlines The day. That's that's a good way to put it sound so official the we make it sound a little crazy but I mean I think it's not I I guess not an understatement to say like you guys have kind of I mean is movement to strong. Would you say moving too strong? I mean if we're talking about I guess refer. I guess it depends on what you're referring to specifically you mean just of podcasts because yes certainly I think we instrumental in the creation of like a anew podcast paradigm but beyond that. I don't I don't know if there's anything that we are responsible for directly. Let me ask you this. Do you think you guys are the very controversial. And it's interesting because the controversy kind of goes beyond a lot of stuff you're actually do or say like there is a lot of people invent invent things you know the anything that you would say is actual ballot criticism. That you hear some times that you think okay you know what that might be something that is fair like. There's some sort of Gwen Snyder type stuff like this lady who has basically Declared you guys a one way ticket to fascism like yes you yeah. Chapo to fash- pipeline notorious for its many inhabitants. Yeah in the midst of their like like is there any Behold Polo T. You're you're the put a little bit of emphasis on the fact that when she does he stretch through like three hundred forty nine tweets long. Oh Yeah like.

Hashing It Out - Ava Labs Kevin and Stephen
"I'm a first differentiates itself with its consensus protocol. Which I know you've talked about a lot before Previous episodes of this but I'll I'll give a very brief overview of essentially. It's a highly scalable both in throughput and also the latency and the number of participants The can participate in consensus. So the first kind of main idea that that started album was the concert. Now since then we've also branched out into this idea of sub nets relate heterogeneous or a heterogeneous network. So that allows us to Kind of scale not just like on like consensus speed sides but also allows people to develop their own personalized Network so for example. We we are able to port the EDM so easily because we can essentially just have a wrapper around an existing EDM implementation and then use avalanche consensus with that and so we can court in two Gecko in relatively easy manner with how we structured sub nets and so that lets people not just You know have very fast infrastructure but also very flexible one so someone could implement their own. Virtual machine has an arbitrary business logic. That's specific to them and so Say so those are those are the two technical side And then I think Kevin can talk a lot more about like the business on how we're kind of it chained to to meet unique in that aspect but I think From the architecture side where we're kind of pushing towards like You know very very flexible infrastructure both on the consensus and the engine side for Kevin. Kevin I WANNA I wanNA trend reiterate something that's I think is incredibly important about The what office doing That is it's a it's a market distinction between consensus and the underlying data or mach- machine. Stay right most open networks right now those things are intrinsically married like like the consensus for lives state and the changes nate whereas Aga An it's different. Nation is consistent his own thing and then you can have other like a bunch of different machines rely on. That's exactly yeah that's basically exactly right. It's program ability not just at the application layer which is what other smart contract platforms delighted to already It's also program ability At layers below that the network stack wind data stacks which is an important property allows some interesting things that are very difficult from for for others One of the most important things that we want to make sure is that we build a smart contract platform that capitalizes on the value of the applications built on top This is something that for example doesn't do I can if I issue a let me let me call a low velocity a high longevity type of assets. Something like You know Real Estate Orlando something like that That on a theorem Looks no different than forgive nommik laser here but the any regular should coin It accumulates the same fees. It does not. It is not guaranteed to be different from any other Coined the does may be has no value whatsoever to it and we're trying to capitalize on this problem in a way that provides a that gives the issue of assets in creators smart contracts on our platform the ability to effectively divide the the the guarantees a little bit more at a higher. Gherardi or Logan. Larry Rather It's it's about you know giving somebody that is issuing these applications that or the asked us that have very high longevity needs and high security needs It gives them the ability to pay much much. Larger fees to be stored for very long period of time and be very secure. Burst something that. Maybe he's just not very high value and needs may be much higher speed and much lower fees so this is something that we allow. That theory doesn't quite allow and and is actually goes down to the to the token design as well so in fury on the the problem is it does not You know if I issue a new token Or if I build a ruler. Successful application of the theory Yeah fees are paid in East which is great but down to the minors and nobody else benefits from the fact that there is usage off of these Of this of this token on the system It's actually It's actually quite a big problem for theory. I mean you have so much value being built on a theory that bitcoin could never could ever dream off right now and none of it is really being capitalized at the value that it should be capitalized by the by the underlying token Our design has been more of the not the designer. We've taken is more of the the one that says. This is a cap supply token like bitcoin. And whenever you do operations that require things like creating new blockchain's and paying for transaction fees and so on they burn off the tokens and the burning Obama tokens alternately creates scarcity novel and so that capitalizes on the underlying On the underlying token of the of system. So that's an in a different designed from How a theory has done this But I mean this more foam I would say peripheral property The first goal that we want achieve is really in the ability to effectively labrum ability at the at the network data layer which is very very important because it allows a lot of flexibility on how you can design your your economics for your smart contract. It's like effectively. You know smart contract level charting almost if you want to think of it that way. Maybe that's not quite super correct. But it's the best knowledge that I can possibly come up with in one sentence and And that's just not the case for any other platform the whoops there okay So Steven you mentioned these subjects that have has right. How do those are? Would you compare those those akin to para chains or something like Sharpton East to a so with the St Louis? Model that you mentioned. How does that compare to something like East? Who which has the goal of being more stateless. Yes so I think the biggest difference the tweet our model and something more similar to their model is that offer us are. Our sub nets are heterogeneous which means that they aren't necessarily running these same The same the Amer the same the same Guess scheme if you're preparing database land So east to at least you know. Correct I'm wrong but Each to is planning on the chief being scale ability on the same kind of network with the same security guarantees in the same network guarantees across all of its shards. So what that means is that essentially. They're trying to paralyse computation and increase their throughput by adding nodes not need to validate the entire the entire state And so that's that's very useful in some cases however what's typically pretty difficult. When there's a lot of cross shark communication which on blockchain it then becomes very important of how you're you're splitting things into shards and so from from our point of view you know you're GonNa have something like you know the die chain or the Guy I G- CHARD. Where ever wants to be on the Diet Chart because everyone of us die and so all of a sudden anyone that isn't on the die charred is going to have to be communicating with the DIA- Chard Which is relatively expensive in most Charlotte Systems However with us Our viewpoint sub nets is that some nets are heterogeneous and so they may contain their own environment so for example B. Edm would live in its own sub met and would have surprise like Is a is Senate that were planning on doing which is a soon of Eutherian state. So so that's That's like the big difference really so we have something that's based off of the functionality. Rather than you know just splitting the entire state. So that's like the main
Mark Cuban on the effectiveness of the CARES Act
"We're going to be speaking today with a mark. Cuban is the owner of the NBA team the Dallas Mavericks. Lots of people know him from the show shark tank and his investing in startups very active on twitter and social media in terms of fleshing out sounding policies right now during this crisis also someone who people suspect may have local ambitions of his own one day and so sort of great person to discuss Everything that's going on right now. I would like to preface this entire interview by saying that I knew nothing about basketball or the NBA. I'm GonNa try really really hard. Let's bring in Mark Mark. Thank you very much for joining us. Or what's the deal? Tracy was just asking this on twitter. Can you give us the thirty second explanation of how the NBA Salary Cap Works? Tracy tried to cram homer for the PODCAST. And so it's like. How does that work? She wants to know. I'd rather calculate Pi digits. Explain the salary cap. Okay well fair enough anyway. Thank you for joining us. As we've been doing throughout all of our episodes during this crisis I wanna make a note that it is a May Twelfth Today. The reason that important is because who knows how the world will look in a few days when this comes out but it is here. We are may twelfth about really Two months into this crisis in most intense form because there's actually march eleventh the day that the NBA was cancelled. So two months in mark of just from your perspective. All the different things you're involved. Then how does the world look to right now sort of big picture and with the businesses that you operate and invest uncertain confused hope cautiously hopeful looking for guidance? Looking for leadership. We just don't know who to trust with our lives effectively and that's keeping people from doing things the way we've always done them. So you invest in a lot of small businesses. Could you maybe give some specifics? About how your portfolio companies are getting impacted right now. What are the biggest problems that they're currently facing big? Promise that the fall in demand you know. There's just people are very hesitant when it comes to buying products and services right now unless they're related to things you can store in your home. You know the companies. I have that are selling athletic equipment. You know those are doing well. Companies THAT ARE SELLING FOOD PRODUCTS. Those are doing well. Companies that are selling pretty much everything else are not or their businesses down is some percentage so you know people trying to get. We're trying to gauge. When consumer demand will come back and that's the most difficult aspect of trying to figure out what's next so Hudson in your view what's been done from the You know sitting aside what the right approach to health prices. We've seen we saw the cares. Package passed at the end of March with the idea of helping least small businesses keep employees on payroll to not to prevent the unemployment crisis from getting worse and for people to have businesses to be to to go back to work to when the health crisis lives also seen a range of things from the. Fed in your view. How effective have those measures band? At least dampening the pain from this some some To some extent you know I'll refer to Mike Tyson. Who said everybody's got a plan until they get punched in the mouth right and the cares package that the plan was great. The initial timing of it was great. It was it happened very quickly. The implementation was was too slow and so when we got you know the day the NBA was cancelled march. Eleventh and people started really realizing that there were issues that we're going to have to address from out perspective and then you know relatively quickly for Congress the beginning of April. We had a cares for stimulus but unfortunately from that point in time till the time small businesses small medium size is actually got funding was several weeks. Add to that the fact that there wasn't enough money add to that the fact that there was uncertainty about how the money can or should be spent and what would be the case for forgiveness and that caused a lot of small businesses to hesitate and that led to a scenario where you know a month in a month. After the cares OB- stimulus was passed. Businesses really weren't able to take the steps necessary to try to continue as much business as usual and that really created a cascading negative effect. That were still in right now. So the concept was good. The plan was good but the virus punched in the mouth and the execution was near where it needed to be.

Please go ahead and introduce yourself and tell the people where they can find you okay Hello everyone out there in a radio world but anyway Dexter PAGANS. I go by the nickname of DOC. Ask just something. That's a carry over from the military. I was in the US Army as a combat medic for twenty three years and basically in the military. That's what they referred to as that that medical person is is right there with them up provide their medical care in the event. Someone gets her so I'm not a doctor By any means but You know I do have little experience in in the medical field I can be found on instagram for those who follow instagram. Social Media World on Instagram. My instagram name is still dot standing as S. T. E. E. L. Dot standing is T. A. N. D. I N. G. A. That's my primary platform as far as communicating. Allow the stuff that I do in the emergency preparedness in Medical Mercy Training arena. So that's where you can buy me man I. I came across you on social media on your instagram. Feed follow a few of the different What they call the Black Second Amendment advocates or the Black Pepper Class. And things like that and now you caught my attention specifically Because I've seen a couple of training videos from you for a couple of your seminars and One specifically caught. My attention is I think you were trying to teach how to create an airway and using some type of device that you put your nasal cavity and I'm telling you man that like something out of hell raiser like wait a minute man. What is this guy doing here? Man Let me so. I started following you. Just based on that and I see you got a lot of great information and you know and this time Over the I'll stay over the last six seven years Say going back to like the Trayvon. Martin shooting The Mike Brown shooting and things like that seems to have been like this rise of interest in the black community specifically about you know learning your Second Amendment Rights in self defense and emergency preparedness. There's also been a rise in what they call you. Know people preparing for the worst possible case in an emergency and things like that as so you know I myself I follow a couple of guys on Like I'm seeing on instagram. So you know before we get started and talk about some of that stuff may just give me your a little bit about yourself. You know you mentioned in your in the intro. That she spent some time in the military Just break that down for his Mahajan Interested in going into the military I noticed on your bio says a think You spent time in the Marines and the army so you know you said Yulia years you lived at that military life man so tell us a little bit about that okay. Yeah basically You know coming from my my neighborhood growing up you know. I'm old head so I probably don't look at every Zuma pitches but Base. That came right out of high school in the midst. Black don't crack. So you know right you know. Come right out of high school in the mid seventies that was almost like right after Vietnam War like a thing that a lot of brothers in neighborhood was doing you know because as far as jobs and different opportunities lie dead. It wasn't really a whole lot going on usually the going off to college. You know continuing education or you find a lot of guys at during the that era especially my neighborhood was going into the military quick quick quick thing. Keep saying my neighborhood. I've ever so I'm I'm originally from. Fort Wayne Indiana I'm orig- argument from the Mid West little small. I'M NOT GONNA. Small talk is probably the second largest town in the state of Indiana Predominately Black neighbourhood Well angles at predominantly black. I think we may have had. Maybe one nine black family in the neighborhood of that time so was definitely Ha- I'll say almost all black but I you know anyway so that was the thing this is around. Nineteen seventy seven. Okay Kennedy Idaho my as right there right. Outta high school a lot of us you know right after Vietnam a lot. We had allowed debts. Lot of the brothers who it with went off to war came back in. You know kind of seeing what was going on with Dan but really that was like a big thing probably across the country matter of fact when I initially went into the service I went into Marine Corps in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven and allowed the brothers that I was in the Marine Corps Wig through boot camp through training out there San Diego California just getting a no on a lot of the brothers was telling me you know back back home base. It came into the military because they may have to some trouble in back in those days they actually have a thing they call go to war. Go to jail and that was true. I always think it was like fairytale. You hear that would. Actually that was the real deal. Some some guys actually came into the military because they got them some trouble. Maybe whatever it might have been in the judge gave him option. Either go to jail. Go into the service so anyway else allows guys chose to service so anyway a day two years in a when I went into the rain rinker prior to while I was in highschool prior to going into the service. I actually worked in hospital Ride in the evenings I get off school. Go go work at this house pill And also on the weekends so I kind of had little interest in medical field early on yes from working in Osceola but the thing about it is. I worked in hospital as a janitor past deals avenue of their sweeping the floor. You know you're still. That was my initial exposure to the medical field. And I you know I got. I liked the environment. You know why people helping folks and it was cool so I wanted to go into the medical field but But at the same time I was Kinda cock his. I thought it was bad. I'm a couple of my buddies. We went into core Marine Corps. So we we figured the Marine Corps was the hardest Brandt that time out most so we chose Marine Corps but because I can go into the medical field because the marines US Navy personnel. They Call Them. Navy CORMAN THEY US Navy people for their medical in so I knew I didn't WanNa go into the navy so I did my little time in the Marine Corps in then I got out so I'm back at home my thing back in Hallman. Sometimes you know he's got too much idle time. It can start pointing you in the wrong direction. You don't made a conscious effort to go back into the conscious decision side to go back to the military a never had in in in this time. I I'm actually going into the medical field won't doing something which I initially wanted to do. Anyway so I chose to go into the army Became a combat medic trying to combat medic and even though it was never mind tension to stay the military as long as I did. But you know just like anything you know getting their time to get out a man what. I'm GONNA do when I get out. So you know the security was there you know getting paid. I'm learning some stuff. I'm enjoying it so I just chose to stay in and so the initial four years twenty three years later I finally got out. So that's how that win in so that was the military stuff Once I got the military You know now. We're to like the Middle Eastern stuff were going on overseas in the Middle East. I took a job working over in the Middle East as a contractor With a over the United Arab Emirates Basically we were trading their military people in because my specialty was a medical I was working with their their their version of their combat medic training. Amona basic combat. A medical mercy.

"And I just WanNa thank you and I'd like to come back after the election so after November fourth. I'd like to come back and talk to you again. We can talk about the result. Okay great so you see. It took us a year to get you. One nine. Can't wait to come back on behind. The scenes invented a year before it and it just fell between the cracks. You're probably reading your book and stuff. Yeah Yeah I said a I said. Let me reach out to her again. And a Grad worked out so so yeah I would be glad to have you on again. make up for lost time. You come back after the election. You WanNa do it shortly. After sure will will be will be in touch around the election day and Yeah and yet. He's I apologize. It takes me a while to get back to people because I also have a fulltime day job and I always tell people are interested in writing. You still have to have a day job so That can make things challenging. But that's that's life so but once the book was out I had time to to get back to people and and frankly the free time of being on this lockdown. But Yeah we'll so let's be in touch around then. Yeah sounds good. Yeah the lockdown has helped a lot because I Have been doing the same thing. I've been going through a backlog of people I invited on are meant to invite on and going through that list again. Which is how you ended up onto on today. But Yeah Yeah. Let's definitely this definitely do that. I'll be very interested in hearing your thoughts and what happens. I feel like whatever happens is going to be interesting. I mean the nothing I'll say is I think that the only thing that can really take out trump right now is the covert nineteen if if the narrative about his handling of it gets bad enough. I don't think anything that the Democrats do on purpose stands a chance like if Biden is just going to be dumb luck from covered nineteen Fallout which would be horrible to see him to stumble into dumb luck like that. But Yeah I think yeah. Not being trump just as basically biden has to say for himself as I'm not trump and The pandemic wouldn't have been as bad if I were president because I would have beaten up on China That is not gonNA get him an election. They need a kick ass. Get out the vote effort and but I also I just WANNA remind everybody in two thousand sixteen I did. I knew trump would get millions of votes. I thought it would be closer than they said. But people who like trump like him no matter what and I hope. We're not surprised by the degree of support that he maintains.

His articles are researching episode. So he has been on this for a while. I use his his insights to even do the episode that I did. Oh great great. Yeah and I haven't seen that but you asked the question. I'm sorry I realized I skipped over it about the timing for the book and it just so happened. I finished writing the book in the end of the summer of twenty eighteen and it takes. It's about an eighteen month process once you finish a broken to actually It being published in just so happened to be eighteen months later was February of twenty twenty so it was black history month president's Day month election year So that was not something I planned actually thought I finished the book sooner so had been able to finish when I thought I could. It wouldn't have even been a February of a twenty twenty but then you also asked me about the research and Yeah it's something you know. I was accustomed to writing commentary and You know and I would cite sources when I quoted someone or whatever but it's it's another thing altogether to make a statement about presidential history and that requires a lot of research. A lot of it was online but some of it has to be done in the library so many hours at the New York Public Library here in New York or at the Library of Congress in Washington which I recommend everybody visit and get researcher card. So yes I wanted to able to back up what I said I it couldn't it couldn't just be forty. Five chapters of this guy was racist Had to back it up so That's a that was a very very important to me. And I I think it makes the book a lot more credible. Yeah I I agree and I wanted to give you a chance to Say anything that you feel like. You didn't get a chance to say but would like to share before. Go off to give every guests to a chance or or just you know give to your book is your is. Your call. Okay cool I will.

"Yeah people ask me having finished a book. Who Do I think the worst president was for black people and I have to say it was? Andrew Jackson He was the one who truly made the manifested genocide I against the Indians in the southeast Kicking them out of their lands Indian removal act and making those states for the plantation economy in creating a hell on earth for black people but but let's just remember something. When the proposal I came up to put a woman on the money and people said Harriet Tubman and that she should be on the twenty dollar bill. I happen to think it doesn't honor her to put her on money. Money was the cause of her suffering but in any case They said it should be Harriet even by herself. It would be an yeah. I. I think that's an insult to her. But but it was during the Obama Administration that they said no no. We're not taking Jackson off. Were just going to add her. To one side will be Jackson. One side will be her so now people act like trump is the one keeping Harriet. Tubman off the money When it was the Obama Administration said she should share this woman who Was One of the leaders in the fight against slavery should share this alleged honor with the man who may chattel slavery of the political force that it was in the reality that it was for the four million. Enslaved people settling this very that's very emblematic of a lot of Obama's legacy in general as far as a lot of his half half measures on during his presidency paved the way to make it a lot. Easier for out of trump's outright reversals. Sure oh absolutely it's You know when you see it in In foreign policy he's the one who started sanctions against Venezuela Trump is the one who is ramped it up so much so that they're killing thousands of Venezuelans. He was the one who destroyed Libya he was the one who really perfected the regime change policy. They attempted to do the same thing against Syria. Unfortunately failed to good thing that Russia helped the Syrian government but But yes absolutely. He's the one who helped the ruling classes whenever there's something they know we won't want. They always claim it's temporary so Bush had temporary enacted temporary tax cuts for rich people. Well Obama made them permanent. Obama practiced austerity. He's the one who made these budget cutting proposals to the Republicans and Mitch McConnell and and the like were so racist. They didn't want the s the only reason they said no they didn't WanNa give the Black Democrat the credit but he was ready to. He said everything's on the table including social security. I don't know if you remember the first debate. He had with Mitt Romney when he didn't do so. Well one of the first things out of his mouth was about cutting social security and I think Governor Romney will agree with me. We must look at this and then people act like he was the one saving them from the barbarians when he is in fact. One of the bar barons and it makes sense 'cause Over abidance on the record as Being having social security and he was able to just lie about it in Sanders didn't really beat the drum on it like you should. If he's just like we'll get people look at it for yourselves. A absolute and that's what they use Democrats to do President Bush Bush forty one couldn't get NAFTA passed but Bill Clinton could Republicans frightened. No NAFTA THE Trade BILL WITH MEXICO. I agree but adding the example of the crime all. It yes yes. Yes Oh yeah. That was one of the things horrible. Things that Clinton did and They you know Republicans dream conservatives dreamed about Getting rid of the right welfare well as Clinton a Democrat who actually got it done another one. Yes Nafta Crime Boo Welfare. Yeah a lot of times they use the Clinton. That's Democrats get horrendous show. And that's what they'll do with Biden. That's what they'll do with. Biden to should he become become president? That's a great point. He will do the under under Biden. My favorite chapters are the ones that took somebody that you know you thought would be a racist and surprise you with just how bad they actually were. And then the champions that took sacred cows of black people or the left kind of surprise. You wanted him. You know the ones that were the person was racist but they were pretty much racist as you'd expect like for example Andrew Johnson. I mean that was pretty much what I expected. You can tell me anything that surprised me by Andrew. Johnson you know but George Washington was one of the was worse than I thought. John Adams John Adams being involved in the case against the dead crispus addicts like disparaging him was I was like wow inspect that Thomas. Jefferson was pretty much as bad as I thought he would. Just mess was one of the ones that was more more spread than I thought. James Monroe is pretty much the society would be I mean when she had the Monroe doctrine named after you wouldn't surprise me. Jackson was as bad as I thought he would be. Martin Van Buren and a lot of people like that exposed me to a trend that I didn't realize I didn't realize how many ex presidents actually used to be abolitionists like like Martin Van Buren and Ulysses Grant. How many of them were actually turn their back on. Abolitionist UPBRINGINGS. It's very easy. Just to every white person except for John. Brennan the hand of others being pro slavery but a abolition. Ism I can't read is from. Your book was a lot more popular than occurred. More often than People think and a lot of presidents. They're allowed them to turn their back on abolitionist. Youth or leasees. Grant had Donosti abolitionist on parents and he was actually almost disowned for. Not Living abolitionist upbringing. Things like that. Yeah Van Buren was a northern Democrat. his father did was a slave holder but then he When he was a state senator in New York state he was in favor of giving the franchise to free black men and this was used against him later on when he Ran FOR PRESIDENT. But then he said No. I was not an.

Mexicans are murderers rapists and we need to build a wall and we need to keep people from shithole countries from coming into the to the United States and he appealed to millions of people. He is the one who created excitement in two thousand sixteen. He got two million more votes than Mitt. Romney didn't twenty twelve and Hillary Clinton was So stupid in so crooked that she couldn't do very simple things to eke out a victory but but racism is part and parcel of the presidency. Everything everything from slaveholding to defending slaveholders holding to The reconstruction not being defended and black people being abandoned in Being abandoned again during the years of Jim Crow and the reaction against the Civil Rights Movement. All of those things play out in presidential politics but the lesson As I just said is that a black people fair the best when we create a political price crisis when been sleep people ran to union lines and turn the civil war into a war against slavery when people in the sixties created the crisis During the civil rights movement all of these things show that it's we're the ones who make things happen and If we fail to do so be. Regardless of their personal feelings for BLACK PEOPLE BE INERTIA. Created by the system makes Presidents defacto white supremacists in their policies. So of course excuse me of course. I think everybody should buy the book So you can order it from steer fourth press dot com or Amazon. If you don't have issues with Amazon There's a paperback and audiobook kindle edition and It's very readable people. Tell me that it about which is obviously what I wanted. Not Too long. It's almost two hundred pages so it's not a very long someone told me. It's a brisk read which is a good thing but it is actually was able to read it in a in a day. I started Yesterday and I was done with it by today and I wasn't a full day reading yesterday. That was like At the end of my work they yesterday going through to this morning And that is your voice narrating right is that you know what I noticed I was listening to it because this is this is what I do. Our Amazon kindle. Has this thing where you can read the book but have the Audio Book playing in the background and it actually moves the page as you get through the audio book so what I was doing was is listening. And then I would highlight certain things in the book and I had both at once the print version and the voice and I notice your voice got more animated and the abrek Obama part. He's angry. Tell you re listened to it because you were very cool and clinical but then the Barack Obama part I got pretty heated so I wanted to ask the highest dictation for Obama because that seemed like know Georgia Children Lover told logos boy for it. Well I think I think there are two things going on. We did go in Chronological Order. Recording the books. I think I became more comfortable towards the end but I do have a special Animists I guess I should just use word against Obama. I did not have any expectation of him. I did not vote for him. I knew that that he won that he was able to raise half a million dollars. He is ten times as much as John McCain did and that told you where his interests were going to lie With Wall Street with the banks of wish with the financial services industry and not with us and by his Demeaning black people in dismissing black people. It told me everything was going to happen with him and I I think. His presidency was a setback for black people politically. Because we essentially gave up black politics it was dying anyway and then black. Politics amounted to nothing more than defending him. Opposition to him was very racist so every time. Some you know. Cracker Congressman would You know heck limit a speech. Her Column Tar baby or or whatever everybody Joined in defending this man who day should not have defendant. And what were we left with? At the end people were happy to see a lovely black first lady and see them at the state dinners and you know him. Getting off Air Force One. And all these trappings of the office life. I think his wife is is African. American wife and his daughters were his biggest assets in addition to being like you know a black president because I think it wouldn't image of him but his whole family that to this day people really romanticize have allow trouble letting go and we saw that with Joe Biden like Joe Biden was basically almost on his way out of the election but when they thought he could get all that blacks report and when they asked a lot of people they said it was because he was Obama's number two we're still feeling the effects today like basically they said. Look we're GONNA need black support and even our number ones twos and threes in the election right now. Buddha J. BY Warren and whoever they're basically pulling nil or getting no results with our black people they knew all the white people who all the white centrists who were voting for those streep which fought in line to vote for Biden or whoever was the establishment Democratic candidate but Biden is the one could deliver the black votes special black boomer votes. Who are the black people who vote the most and that was due to Obama the Biden? That was back boomers like that. No no it was the Obama Effect it was the fear of being convinced that Sanders was going to hurt the party. And would lose to trump all of these things. added to This coalescing around Joe Biden and but but you're right about The overall impact of the imagery. I mean this is very powerful. Imagery people still talk about camelot and the Kennedys. And you know it's like the first family is like an American royal family but this time they were black and and he had this. I and I remember in the early days. People being impressed that his wife was black and that she was dark skinned and people like always wife isn't light-skinned. I mean. It was Kinda crazy at times. I don't know if you recall any of that. Naw Typical Yeah Yeah and All of it was and he. He has I will say this for a bomb. He has political skill. He's one of these politicians who really knows how to connect with people Who can be both has that ability to be both smart but also connect with ordinary people. So he's got the political skills. He had the amazing marketing team behind him. And they knew how to amplify all of these things. Corporate media loved him when people say you know well. Obama never had a scandal. That's proof that the media are covering free for you because I can think of things that should have been considered scandals. That happen Under the Obama Administration so All of these things Work together in combination to To make him an untouchable for the rest of his life Among black people in you know still I I remember that last year he was in office and even when People Thought Hillary Clinton was going to win. People's I'm GonNa Miss Obama. I can't believe he won't be president again. I mean that's the way it works. You get two terms but not liking him. It was easy for me to say that and I didn't feel this connection with him but it was very deadly for black people and deadly for black politics. We really have a lot of work to do. And when I say black politics I don't just mean black politicians. I mean having a politics that asserts the rights of black people and that is Uninhibited and talking about what mead agreed. I'll tell you my favorite chapters of the book because it's very thorough. You give one chapter for each president but you also don't make it too long or academic is pretty much on just the facts. It's a very engaging prose. It's not the dry academic pros and you give a lot of footnotes for people who WanNa go More in depth. So you know I. I liked that and my favorite chapters the George Washington one. 'cause not nothing. I had any high ideals about George Washington but some things in a surprise me that ninety percent of people with the surname Washington are back people and and it's not all because they were descended for him from him or are there answers are owned by Washington's a lot of them just chose that name because it was considered like the most American name and it was a way for a lot of people like Booker T. Washington for example to feel a part of this country so that was and think about it. You said it but I was like the black is probably the blackest name in America is. I mean when you think about names like Jefferson Jackson too. It's the same Black people have fewer last names. If that makes sense there are more we have names. That are very common amongst the group and are likely to be names for black. People which is problematic is one of the things that makes crosscheck so successful that I mentioned before but yeah But Washington was you know anti one of the things I've Am really in touch with now after having researched. This book is that anti-black. Racism is foundational to this country and George Washington the father of our country So called he and his wife own. Several hundred people The maintenance of Chattel Slavery Keeping Physical Control and even ownership at that time of black people was the need to do that was so strong. They created a new city a new capital city in slave territory. The first capital was new. York City then moved to Philadelphia then. They built a new city on a swamp between Maryland and Virginia. And this was they needed to do that. Because when Washington was president in Philadelphia he had a problem. Philadelphia had a law that any enslaved person in Pennsylvania for more than six months could become free so Washington had to rotate people in no one was allowed to stay in Philadelphia for more than six months lest they be freed so That is an example of the problems they had unless the capital was physically located in those states. That really depended on the plantation economy. And he was I one of the things I want. People to get out of this book is we need to become used to rejecting the ICONOGRAPHY we've been given All these guys are was them. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Their faces are on the money. We have president's Day. Schools are named after him. City states are named after them Speaking of the faces on the money the Andrew Jackson on Chapter I thought was very good because Andrew Jackson They wanted to put him on the twenty dollar bill next to Harriet. Tubman like not even take him off and you play some fully. We have retirement but there would be sharing it. And when you read your Chapter Andrew Jackson you read this horrifying. It is to put him next. Harriet Tubman on the same bill..

"Being the more progressive candidate getting excitement from the people who are generally marginalized in a presidential election but then just hurting them back into the party. Fold and getting them to support the whichever horrible person emerges at the end of the primary process and as far as Bernie Sanders concern. I don't know why he bothered running. I think in two thousand sixteen he wanted to push Hillary Clinton to the left. I think he was surprised by his success in twenty sixteen but having been through that I assume he was really serious about wanting to be president this time around but he did not have the courage of his convictions. I I don't know if he was naive. These people the ruling classes. They're they're not sitting around and GonNa let somebody who's even a little bit left Become President so of course. There was propaganda against him and black people were used in that way. It was very difficult for him to get his message through to black people When the Black Mislead irs were so closely allied with the Democratic Party establishment so for example We were told. Well you know you might want Medicare for on by the way these are things black people in need black. People don't need student loan Relief from student loan debt. Of course we do but we were told. Well you may want that but white people don't want it and you can't trust them to vote for Bernie Sanders and being risk averse and having this politics. Now that's based just on fear Even if black people wanted those things were afraid to support him because we were convinced that he couldn't win and therefore we would have trump again. I think we will have trump again anyway but you know and Sanders did have some weaknesses with black voters as it's kind of an tangible thing to be there people who would say he doesn't get race in the talks about class and not enough about race but We have supported people who were very racist like Bill Clinton who seemed to have this connection with black people so I I don't know what that meant. It wasn't something that was convincing to me I also had issues with Sanders about foreign policy. He always supported imperialist foreign policy in. Us aggression against the rest of the world. He fell into this trap. They use Russia against him. Late in the primary campaign allegedly the intelligence analysis which showed the Russians preferred him and then a few days later they were like. Oh well actually. That report overstated the case. But you know he he you know fell for the okeydoke again Ben Said I you know he didn't like Putin and G Jinping's authoritarian and the whole nine yards rather than standing up for himself in for his people and by his his his surrogates have been far more dog about these things. And he has like are you know. Turner are still like dog fighting but even before he Bowed out he was really going easy on. Joe Biden meanwhile the DNC is showed that they had no problems tearing down the whole Party for four years just to keep him out. Oh absolutely and he I think he was afraid of being blamed as he was last time that it was his fault trump. Is Everybody thought? Except people who had two billion dollars to defeat DONALD TRUMP? But he didn't want to be blamed again and And he caved and basically repeat in in endorsing Biden reputed repudiated everything he claimed to believe in so. I think the positive to come out of this should be that people know. We cannot depend on the electoral process alone.

"Anything that helps. The people is something that hurts their donor class and so their priority is making their donor class happy and crushing anybody who threatens that relationship so they can do what. They can't do what they need to do. In order to win they nibble around the edges. The Republicans are racist enough. When right wing enough that they can get a lot of votes just by saying well. We're not the Republicans and that's easier with trump but They can't win as easily as they should be able to because of their refusal to do the things that they know would help them win. They knew Bernie Sanders could win. It's just the opposite of what they said they were afraid sanders would lose and lose seats. They knew he could win although they lost a thousand seats or round the country when Obama was in nobody said anything about losing seats then so So this is where we are. We have these two horrible parties one. That's openly right-wing the racist the we have a far right party in a centre right party and and actually I don't even know if the Democrats are center right anymore What is the meanings of left and right are so skewed in this country The Democrats are are supposed to be the left wing party but you. You wouldn't know that they're just less right wing than the Republicans and And actually interestingly. My Man was talk about your book in the first half and then the politics in the second half because she spent this much time talking about the politics I say I see we just talk about it for another ten or twelve minutes and then we get to your book you know do in reverse order plan but something that you said that I think was really true and should be expanded on is that they're more scared of Sanders winning than the are of trump winning and Personally I think that that's gotta be because like there's been many years but especially in the last four years with social media and the mainstream legacy of access media. There's been a lot of Bus but kissing are basically but kissing and pandering and relationship building with Hillary That happened two thousand sixteen when trump won a lot of people who are basically measuring carpet carpets and curtains in the White House. Basically were were out. People like Jamila Smith. You know you could tell. He was probably angling for something. A lot of people were angling maybe to get rewarded by Hillary winning and when they didn't happen their ass out but those people get a chance to do it again in two thousand twenty but on top of that for four years in between they get to rebrand as the resistance. Okay so we're not going to be a bunch of reporters and politicians and pundits with access to whoever's in the White House but at least we'll be part of this resistance griff but like that's the worst the fair when whoever. They're backing wherever they've been kissing up to doesn't win. Did they get to kind of rebrand as a new resistance part of Party or whatever and try again for years but sanders winning a real losing for them because that changes the whole structure the Democratic Party night late been these people really have no home lose their whole the whole structure? That's giving them power and re runs like all. The people including the blacks leadership class is kind of asked out that they can't work with trump. And now this is a Democratic Party where people are Brianna enjoy gray and Nina. Turner are the preferred black voices and not Say Zelina Maxwell and Engineer Smith so I I think for them they think all we have to do is just if sanders wins. This changes the face of the Democratic Party Here are now and they know sanders is not going to give them anything or any plays especially based on how they Have been treating him with trump wins. They just lose for four years and just liquor wounds do some resistance. Gr- Resistance scripting until two thousand twenty four and then try again. Yeah I think I love that term resistance gifting that's great I'm GonNa Steal that I I started a Hashtag during the Democratic primary night it was called the Bernie heating blue chick black people and Some of the people you describe were definitely on that list. They were as we in black agenda report. constantly referred to the blackness leadership class B politicians the pundits leaders of well-funded civil rights organizations. Who are joined all joined at the hip with the Democratic Party. Bear a professional success their ability to earn a lot of money visibility Getting funders to give them. Money depends on the wellbeing of the establishment Corporate Neo liberal wing of the Democratic Party being successful. So you're right. If Bernie Sanders had won. They would be out there'd be a new group of people and they would not be needed and the they play the role of defending the Democratic Party of hurting black people in of keeping a People from a questioning or demanding or asking any any questions and So yes they would have had a problem. If Bernie Sanders had been the nominee and had been Become President so They are They are huge problem. They are well. The Democratic Party is a problem. They are the obstacle and they are. They're helpers and they give them cover in the black community and black people are And General Risk Averse and black politics now for for variety of reasons has become a it amounts to nothing more than keeping Republicans out of office not Expressing our needs not having our own agenda not making our own demands and we have been convinced that if we do those things on our behalf that the Democrats will lose and the only way to keep the enemy party. The White People's Party out of power is just to Get Behind the Democrats and in the presidential election get behind. The person that we are told is most likely to win so the same people who in two thousand sixteen insisted that Hillary Clinton was going to win and there was no problem in. There was no doubt in their minds. That trump had no chance to win. These same people are now telling us that Biden is more electable and The propaganda is like some kind of hypnosis. Almost is so complete that nobody says. Wait a minute. Aren't you the same people who insisted that trump had no chance and wasn't going to win So the most amazing thing that these people have not lost any credibility since that now Misread in two thousand sixteen election badly. Yeah well that that's where Russia gate came in It's not their fault. There's nothing for them to explain. It was some evil dictator in another country. Who used fifty thousand dollars worth of facebook? Memes and discourage black people from voting in Michigan. And if you hear that enough year after year after year and the people who can be that are kept out of public discourse will then you believe it and You know I so I was GONNA say the most interesting by that. Russia gate lies like some of the stories were chewed at fifty thousand dollar facebook. Ning you know. So you able to take that that little truth and then exaggerated something else because even if there was a fifty thousand dollar facebook campaign fifty thousand dollars nothing. There's not enough to move that. That many move the needle that much and also as likable have enough valid reasons to do what they did like like it really comes down to just a small fifty thousand dollar campaign that summa affected black people all across the country in every voting district including boomers. Yeah it was at the metal that the the the the facebook ads from the Russian company. Basically it's just click bait they Get people beget attention? Talking about hot button issues and people click on ads and they make money and most of the fifty thousand dollars by the way we spent after election day. So this you're talking about there's no it just doesn't make any sense and a liberal. Scapegoating is how powerless to act. They are like okay. There's a fifty thousand dollar Facebook Click Bait Scheme that you know supposedly swayed so much of the election. But meanwhile you guys control all the media like a billion trillion dollar Industry you monopolize mainstream legacy media and the punditry but eight thousand dollars equals out matches. Similar students. Sarandon Susan Sarandon is one celebrity and the act like it's just not even like the most but meanwhile the celebrity complex they had backing Hillary Clinton. It's ridiculous and and Susan Sarandon even poked fun at it. She listen every single celebrity that was for Hillary and said apparently you know I told my agent. I'm more influential harder than all these people. Well you're absolutely right and But that's propaganda. That's that's all that it is and Hillary Clinton raised a billion dollars more than a billion dollars and on election night in two thousand. Sixteen Democrats should have snatched pitchforks marched on her house. Because she just she screwed it up. she. I believe she spent most of two thousand sixteen concerned about her. Legal troubles caused by Her kiting her emails. And that's what she put her energy and the very basic work of voter outreach campaign may just didn't bother with so eighty seven eight votes They lost Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania. That's how she lost the Electoral College. Seventy eight thousand votes. How do you raise a billion dollars? And you can't get seventy eight thousand more votes. We mets absurd But that's why there was a need to stoke the Russia Gate Myth because they have a lot to Try to explain away and It's it's been very valuable now. They've moved on to China and they sound like trump the Cova nineteen is the fault of the Chinese and By the way there's none of that is true. Chinese government informed the World Health Organization at the end of December that this new disease had emerged. They identified the genome in January. Shared it with the world so the Chinese did what they were supposed to do. in informing everybody about the virus but now the Democrats being corrupt and being a shameless and unethical and also being stupid had decided to seize on something that trump said in order to Help Joe Biden's for this man. Who can barely read from a teleprompter in clearly has some kind of health issue? Who is being set up to lose and the left is already being. Set Up to be blamed for his loss yet but liberals screwed either way because even with Biden running almost better for them to have Biden lose and then just skip the left and have Biden win. If Biden wins it has four years of Those type of gifts and whatever. I think not only you know busy. Risk being one term president. But they're Credibil- these going to be Soc shot but I mean. They'll probably find some scapegoat again. But we'll see but I wanted to ask one last question before we move on to talking about your book and this comes from one of our patrons on drama but he said what could sanders have done differently to build a stronger coalition with black voters during his two thousand twenty run and did she agree with her colleague. The late Bruce Dickson who said in two thousand fifteen that sanders is a sheepdog candidate who plays the role of I quote hurting activists energies and the disaffected left back into the democratic. Fold one more time. So it's kind of a twofold Question and know in your own writings you've kind of had up and down view of Sanders from two thousand and sixteen so now yeah he will. Yes that piece that the late Bruce Dickson wrote is As as we say in journalism evergreen he wrote it in two thousand fifteen That there are progressive. Democrats play this role in when there is no democratic incumbent running of.

Kimberly great great. And if you could tell us a little bit of Your past your politics. Your you know anything relevant that will help people understand your viewpoints. How you things sure I was for most of my life. I was a Democrat as Almost every black person is in this country more on the liberal spectrum and I thought of that as the left Like I'll talk a little bit more about that As we go along in our conversation A turning point for me though politically was the election. Theft in two thousand The presidential election was stolen from Al Gore and the Democratic Party. But the Democrats didn't bother to put up a fight and this was a A radicalizing moment for me Most of my life. It was a theoretical Question that it was possible for a candidate to win the Electoral College While losing the popular vote but I was always taught that that was something that was very unlikely or would never happen and then it did happen and it happened because of the theft of black people's votes mostly in the state of Florida and the Democratic Party Said little about it. And then I realized that this was a That is what the Democrats usually do they. Democrats depend on black votes but they wish that they didn't and so they the voter suppression that guaranteed a victory for Bush. Basically what they did in Florida at Florida until recently until justice year Anyone who had committed a felony was basically barred from voting for life and They Took people off of the rolls. They said that people were former felons when they were not. And this is something that's used across the country with something called crosscheck and they will say that. Someone named John Williams was committed a felony in the state of New Jersey. But now that person lives in say Georgia and they take anybody with that. Same name off the off the roles so that's what they did in Florida and they stole the election but At that point I I had voted by the way. I voted for Ralph Nader that year at that time I felt I felt that Once I learned how and that episode explained to us how the Electoral College voted. I realized that people who lived in solidly Blue State or solidly red. Straight states should vote however they wanted to and only people in swing states had to vote for Democrats but then My politics changed. I started This is in early Os and people. Everybody seemed was blogging. I started writing to I started writing for a black commentator and Glenn Ford was Was At black commentator along with Bruce Dickson and variety reasons. We left him. We found in black agenda report in two thousand six and writing for black agenda. Report learning from my My colleagues and comrades there and being exposed people who truly were a leftist from the socialist to the Marxist Side people who identified themselves in various ways. I was radicalized even further and I realized the shortcomings of my education. It's one of the reasons I wrote my book. Presidential Black American presidents Americans regardless of where we Fit on the political spectrum are almost all miss educated and we have to make serious efforts to find out the truth of history in this country in history of of the world Distinction that Black Agenda Report hadn't two thousand sixteen whereas when you guys were listed as fake news During the beginning of what became a really increased liberal derangement Best starting yeah. That was. That was pretty interesting that This icon you guys are fake news. And what do you think was behind that idea among liberals that You guys were fake news. Well they after Hilary Clinton lost. There were many different Efforts to excuse themselves to avoid blame for what was clearly their fault in Donald Trump's of victory and also just to solidify though The war party the surveillance state which is which is quite bipartisan. And we ended up on a list. It was called propaganda or not proper prop or not on the Washington Post In The Washington Post which means it was a Democratic Party project in Jeff bezos probe project. And we that's the thing it wasn't a crackpot like long little blog was Washington Post. Oh yes absolutely. And that tells you how far up this effort wint In the hierarchy We were listed among the many sites that were considered Under Russian influence. And we're very proud of the fact we were the only first of all black report is one of the few It's the only website Giving a news and analysis from a black left perspective and one of the few with original providing original material so we were very proud to be the only black side on the proper not list and being on the proper let not list was very simple. It meant that These were sites that Did Not Follow. The official narrative didn't follow the corporate media narrative or the The narrative from the two major political parties. So it was proof to to me and anybody paying attention that this was a list of good journalism and I immediately after that election. I don't know if you recall just a few days. After the election Obama went to Germany and he's of course meeting with Angela Merkel the chancellor and He kept talking about fake news. And you can't believe everything you hear and you have to be careful of the Internet and I was like what is this about and this was in the wake of the debacle. The Democratic Party tobacco that resulted in trump winning. But I think the larger issue to a realized in messing up so badly that they had to crack down even more than they had already on. the means of communication on the Internet And that was the beginning of Russia had been demonised for some time after the Russian government picked itself up from the pieces of the collapse of the Soviet Union and proved itself to be a rival to the US and its allies and started to push back against the encroachments against Russia So they had been demonizing Putin. Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton began Russia gate. She was anxious to find to create some dirt to put on trump because of her problem. Everybody acts now like This was a minor thing but it was not the fact that a secretary of state that she used a personal server to communicate A secret e mail server not using the State Department server ever use legal problem and it was really the start. I think a lot of unhinged of If that's the word of the of the mainstream liberal base because I think that they started to really downplay you know to as support Hillary and the centers. Dnc also to oppose trump. At all costs. I was one of the biggest things that they turn a blind eye to. And this is a trend that I think it's continuing up until this day with Joe Biden and the rape allegation and like some new. Some new. Some new evidence came up regarding Tara. Read the accuser's mother calling calling Larry King and I saw a bunch of people tweeting. Larry King once worked for for. Rt Are Russia as if this was a decades long plan like you know I can't believe the legs. This Russia thing the same when the pulled in black agenda report has is well. It's it's it's a classic case of propaganda in a a lot of propaganda is very simple. You just repeat something over and over and over again and you exclude any other voice so ever since Election Day in twenty six while during the election even Hillary Clinton called Putin's puppet and this was to cover also for the fact that Bill Clinton had his so-called foundation the Clinton Foundation which is really a influence peddling slush fund had done deals with among other countries with Russia and Consummated an arrangement to sell uranium in that was in Canada to the Russians and that he gave a speech in Moscow was paid half a million dollars to give a speech and met with Ladimir Putin and This is one of the things. Wikileaks revealed When they dumped the DNC emails. They Nude poll showed that this was a neg- would be a negative for Hillary Clinton so he started trying to insulate herself in her dirt in her stupidity by a projecting and saying that trump was the one who was Doing business with Russia. He did say that he thought he didn't see a reason why the US had to have a bad relationship with the Russian government. Which is you know. Make sense to me. In general the Russians are more anti China and the Democrats would were anti Russia. Although now everybody's beating up on China but anyway that's I'm ahead of myself. So that was the beginning of Russia gate and her need to cover for herself to try to pin something on trump. She used her context in the surveillance state to try to get the trump people The reminder people if you follow Russia Gate you may know the names of people like George Popadopoulos and others who were entrapped into saying things that made it look like trump was a a Russian stooge And so it starts during the campaign Also on the Election Night Hillary Clinton's people started talking about blaming Russian saying that there was Russian influence That created her Her victory so we've heard about facebook memes and even two years and trump of course being stupid Has Not helped himself if he had not fired. James Komi there would've been no Mueller investigation that was result of him firing the FBI director and but two years after the Muller investigation. What did we end up with? Who was indicted for colluding with Russia? Nobody they indicting. What's that you're not too bad things? I think came out came out of that. There's two things I think I see the ANC during this is a very big trap is going. GonNa lead to Them Losing Two Thousand Twenty S. I what you just said about. Putting all their eggs in one basket. They've built no other alternative negative narratives against trump with agree. There was the rush the Muslim ban and there was the ice and kids in cages. But that was very very small. In comparison to the sheer amount of ink tweets facebook posts reports Mainstream legacy media coverage of this Russia thing. And like you said it led to nothing and then the second thing is treating on Joe Biden with kid gloves up until now including Bernie Sanders last minute Run Against Biden. Was those two left where everyone's afraid of hurting him because we need someone to run against trump. We can't damage him so basically the public is going to be hearing about all of these things for the first time During his run against trump did not really going to be inoculated against a lot of these claims against Biden against. Like you know. The nepotism scandals the rape accusations segregation past. And this. He's not really going to be These things are going to be tested. You know and and what you were saying about where you are you were saying right now about the Russia thing and how and how. They put all their excellent basket. Had me thinking about basically everything you're saying it's almost like two thousand sixteen never ended. It's just one one long four year year yes because because the Democrats they don't it would be very easy for them to win. If they just met the needs or had policy initiatives that met the needs of the people they would win but starting in the ninety starting with Bill Clinton they chose to become the party of corporate interests too so that means when Bernie Sanders their their priority. This year was defeating Bernie Sanders. I don't even think they care about whether by wins or not Zander's says we need Medicare for all. Well if you had medicare for all you would need private health insurance companies so.

"I was reading your article about living color. You tested into the whole history but also like the history of black people in Rock and alternative rock and their history and you give a pretty good deep dive but you also had one about first. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie and Pretty Long. It was taken as seriously as the living connor one. And so some people on the surface you know they would think okay the living connor one like. That's a seminal band. Broke a lot of ground that there's a long piece but the Ninja Turtle movie when should be just A buzzfeed peace with a lot Egyptian. It and then the mystical. But you know you you treat it with the same serious seriousness you took. It took both equally serious and the LIVER CORNER. One was really was really sorry. The Ninja Turtle. One was really interesting and I learned a lot from it. That I didn't really think I could have gotten that much out of a article by the Detroit which I did like but you know it wasn't that family guy version. The stouter words like hey remember this. Isn't it this did you know it? It wasn't it wasn't that you reported on it. You actually reported on and I walked away learning more than I knew about it before. Yeah it's IT'S I. I think of that family guy comparison a lot like the South Park Episode. Where they talk about. How family guy was developed by like manatees with ideas. Just like an idea balls just like a you know a random collection and T- to get to the Ninja Turtle Story. I think again totally silly movie. People in rubber suits like I'm not going to deny that but To me what made that interesting. Was that the sort of story behind. It was interesting so you know. I think there are a lot of good movies. That don't necessarily or good movies or popular movies. We'll say because again you know it's debatable whether the Ninja turtles movie was quote unquote good. But you know it was insane production and I think people like reading about things that turned out. Well that maybe didn't seem like they were going to get get that way and after say honestly I'm than moving entirety but I've watched pieces of it Watching or reading articles. I maybe want to watch it again. But in the meantime I watched some clips. I'll be honest. Holds up a lot better than I thought this thing. About practical effects era that a lot of people especially people who are kind of techno files are very prone to glamorize like CGI and everything back looked back favorably on. You know like everything news. Autumn could be better. It's it's more technologically advanced so it has to be progress but I'll give an example John Carpenter's the thing by John Carpenter had practical effects like the fact that the people in the room and something tangible and that would the green screen or reacting to a video game character makes the scene. Have More weight even if you can can tell this for static. This is not real. And these the thing remake that they had it was it was can make kind of a prequel and the had. Cgi affects the CGI affects us. Look horrible but on top of that that thing Prequel I think Mary Elizabeth winstead in Did the whole movie and practical effects did the home. Your practical effects. Then they thought you know what this school. Why are we doing this and they did all the special effects with CGI the pictures of the practical effects it leaked all over the place and they look so much better and everyone was like what the Hell were. These people thinking. They had a good solid practical effects movie and it just trashed all these practical effects to replace it with Nintendo sixty four characters. I mean there's like a slickness that definitely detracts like a couple of examples of that from recent months are the depending whether you like the mandatory know the Star Wars show. There was talk that they were GonNa do a Tgi Baby. Yoda that character. And it became became a it was a puppet and that was like the most beloved thing from it and also back to Ninja Turtles. Michael Bay produced these live action. Ninja Turtles Movies in the last ten years. And when I was interviewing people for the my story three or four immediately told me that like Oh yeah people come up to me in the streets and they're like oh the yours is much better than the Michael Bay version because if you if you just go back and look at the trailer of those two Ninja Turtles Movies. It just looks strange. It's like what you said. It's like watching a playstation game or something. Yeah and at first seems cool because they continue to do a lot more stuff and they can they can have more facial expressions like when I saw the Ninja Turtle movie right. The animatronic was very limited facial expressions that they could do. I mean what did it was amazing. Considering technology to time was definitely leap forward and a lot of ways you know the the Marshall may not have been as fast as they can do with. Cgi But this isn't that things were computer. Just aren't quite there yet. For example like when you land realistically land to convey wait like the sting has actual real physical way and then it's not just like bouncing weightless apparition like little things like that. Get lost when I was watching that the clips from that Ninja Turtles One lake. There's something about having the physical. Wait there the physical presence that the actor is not looking at thin air and acting in a room of nothing makes a different things. Psychologically to the viewer even unconscious. Maybe I'm not consciously thinking hey this guy's on the room by himself and I'm watching the thing but I think on some unconscious level my brain registering vet and that's something that has been lost but nobody wants to turn back. Everyone thinks they're supposed to be doing this. Other thing as Stromberg example the people who actually made a whole practical effects movie that looked great and just scrapped it to worship experience more money to make it look worse. It's like peer pressure or something. Yeah exactly and maybe even be pre pressuring yourself and maybe nobody else's pressuring you but you just see whether you're the guys doing psych yourself out you know Related your yeah. It's funny I was. I was watching Terminator Two last night. For example and you know at the time those effects were stunning and it still holds up and I think holds up because a it's a mix of interesting action stuff that is tactile and car chases and all of that but also it's kind of used sparingly. You're so you know you're not constantly reminded of it. I I also think what helps with it is. They were cognitive. They're cognizant of the limitations of it so they didn't play their hand whereas I think now well there was a really bad period in the two. Thousands like famous won't be in the Scorpion King where people were so carried away with the new technology that they tried to make do everything but didn't actually know how to do those things those things yet so I feel like you know James Cameron new like okay. This thing is not going to do human expressions correctly. Let's let's rented it. Let's let's we know what it can do in the Morpheus blob or a faceless running thing. It can do that but they could do that whereas Scorpion King. They tried to make it act. They tried to make it And even the human rock was negative acting much less Yeah yeah his his computer doppler Ganger. This is seen in the first Harry Potter to with a spring way too much time. Harry Potter's face. He's like writing this monster and looks a horrible. It looks like transformers beast wars like that old. Yes it's really. It's really bad but yeah now they want to do everything you want. Cj To beat the room they want it to be the car they want it to be to actually act to be to face. It's very bizarre. I mean it's interesting because for example like the the fast and furious movies. I feel like those are a good mix because something about car chases still pretty visceral experience for people and Yeah you you you still feel like a lot of action movies now are just you know just like things cling together you know. I remember I saw this thing with the fast and furious a clip of the shooting of the eighth one were Director F. Gary Gray was putting up on social media like shoot and there's a scene where they're like racing through the streets in all. These cars are falling out of buildings. Parking garages landing in the street and after they raced through all these like fallen cars and what surprised me was that they actually filmed a bunch of cars. Being just shut out of buildings it was. It was actually real. I'm like sit in to that. I mean just lends to what you said that They still actually do a lot of physical stuff with the car. It's like a lot of people be tempted to just. Cgi Bunch of fake cars falling out of buildings that they would have just like bouncing stuff in the final product. A good example is the last Mad Max movie because you know I'm sure they retouched with CGI but all those vehicles were real again. It just seems so obvious now. Like wow of course you have to do that because it's going to make you feel like you're in knees ridiculous car chases but again it's not commonplace anymore at all. And that's how you assess was really interesting about that. Mad Max movie there's actually a lot of CGI in it. There's a there's a ton of it but what they did was they knew what to not make sense. So basically a lot of the actual road and a lot of the Desert it's really outdoors on occasion and it's like a green screen really but they do a lot of stuff to enhance the Environment and do all this other stuff but the cars and the people they noted limitation. I think it's a perfect example of knowing your limitations so it's like the best. Cgi is stuff that you actually don't even know his Cgi like like an saying. Wow they did a good job in that CGI So when I started making a I was kind of surprised that a lot of little subtle stuff that was actually CGI. That I didn't know it didn't really matter. It wasn't central to the story the stuff that was central stuff. Where you're I was going to be glued to the stuff that needed to actually move and interacting especially interact with people. They made Practical effects and make for a really Nice Really Nice visual movie I mean I think we can all agree the best. Cgi was Superman's mouth in justice league. See that what I admit. I have not seen that movie. But why is it? Is it pretty bad? Oh my God. They Henry Cavill had a mustache that he was contracted he's contractually obligated not to not to shave for his mission..

"Blackburn Broadway must have some Palestinian shit and the funny thing is they pretend is for you. They had that one or two blackout nights. We're in. It's almost kind of insulting these parade you out for a photo opportunity by dislike. What's the point having two nights? Let you take photos that and say look what what the diversity we're bringing to Broadway. If the other three months of the show I just as lily white as any other Broadway show. It's More insulting while applying for grants. Because I don't I don't WanNa be the representative of all black people in terms of my art and it's a real struggle just to get to the point of feeling like I can do things freely without feeling the repercussion of or backlash. You know that that the the people that feel unrepresented. One solid piece of work are going to feel if it doesn't speak to them or doesn't resonate for them so it was interesting one of these that I observed coming out of that whole being was no one wanted to in terms of the black I guess for lack of better term will call it journalistic aspect. No one wanted to be the first person to step out and give their thoughts unabashedly about that. That show on noticed that a lot of the commentary there was coming out of that. Were people saying I still have the process pissed. I don't know what I just saw knowing kind of wanted to step out and give an opinion until they saw some they were kind of waiting for that was his might take they kinda were waiting for someone else to say something and then they were all going to just kinda take their cues and go from there so I just found I can serve. Good aren't though. Think I to provoke something you know and get the emotion starring in and make you process. I mean I had a lot of conversations after the show talking to people and some you know some of it was angered but yeah the biggest thing is the play really. Doesn't have a Qatar at least off Broadway and see the Broadway version. So I saw it off Broadway as well. you're on Broadway version? But I'll talk about them after. Yeah but you know I mean I think you know. Part part of the role of of art is to provoke and to to get people triggered but I think the way. It resolved itself was unsatisfying. It was like you know it's it's there was no advancement terms of like she kinda conceded all our power to this guy to me at the end of his like. Whoa you will never understand. And it's like okay. Well okay but but he gets have his cake and eat it too. You know his whole thing is he's not a bad white guy. Yeah I'm I'm very glad that I'm talking to somebody who actually saw because part of the problem is I have to kind of convey what I saw and you know try to finish it opinion on it. So this is kind of refreshing. 'cause you know not a lot of people can easily see something off off Broadway. 'cause it's a regional thing not like a film but what you said. I think is very right but I think I think is what Mario was trying to say because he's talked about this with me before. Is that the people talk about Mario of. I'm getting the words your sentiment wrong by means. Correct me What you trying to say is that there's a lot of talk about the processing and all this stuff but then nobody ever comes back and says what they got. After the processing was overcame it becomes an exercise just for the sake of the exercise in in it. Seems like there's just this vascular nature to the whole thing where it's nothing of merit really comes out you know. I don't know I like I like I like how you broke the conversation down to send to the nature of the history of black theatre. I know scars my say the nature of the history of black theatre saw. Broadway's always been what they call the great white way for a reason. You know so so when you start to see stories. I mean August Wilson. Yeah he's he speaks that we did a podcast what he's like. Look when you start spending the money around so that you're encouraging black voices and they don't have to pander to this imagining then you'll get worked. That's actually more truthful resonates you know but a lot of this is just as Charles. Woods would say black films. Reactionary never proactive so So everything that exists. We have a chance to look at it as a reaction to something and right now. A lot of it was Black lives matter and Oscar so white so and Metoo. So we're getting. We're getting a lot of that right now but these cycles and waves and I can tell you right now at this virus thing. This money's going to tighten up for everybody and can be left on their own. So you know get used to fucking free concerts on instagram with Teddy Riley. Because that's all we're going to have for a little while until they you know we find a way to support one another because quite frankly I mean you know they when they look at those Netflix numbers. Food for the shows they put on there. They know exactly who you are but they they're not catering to you. They're trying to find those. Things are going to trend and Get PRESS FOR THEM. You know 'cause that's that's their paradigm not about getting a whole bunch of black people to show when we had where we pick here is shut them down right those some shooting the first weekend at some bullshit you know so so we know we have to figure out how to do better for ourselves and then start see better work. I think but anyway when when you know how how did you WANNA start? This man is all up to you. We are honored to have your grace presents. So it's all fine. This is champagne. Sharks this is T- You could find the show on twitter at champion sharks at that. Hashtag and we have with. Mario was going on everybody tomorrow. You can find me on twitter at MD.

I'm now at US bunch of things to talk to you about but we already started going some interesting directions. I THOUGHT BE INTERESTING. Just kind of close that out. Let me let me just set. People may cause I'm I thank you as one hundred privileged to be a part of the champagne sharks and I listened to a lot of the other content looked at the subjects. And it's like. Wow this is going to be a fun. Discussion so You know just for people that don't know Make films but also promote films in Philadelphia and Youtube Channel is an offshoot of a TV show. That I started on public access here to document. Filmmakers and artists people that were deserving recognition and. We started that about two thousand seven on Youtube as well and now.
