Environmental Racism is Real
"Are going to talk about environmental justice and along with that environmental racism and which describes the fact that people of color and low income people are most likely to be situated in your sources of contamination and away from clean water air and soil so research by the la times finds that in the us. The best predictor of whether you live near hazardous waste site is the color of your skin. That is wild but not surprising right. This is america so now from not far from where i live here in the very latin next community vernon here in los angeles families have been waiting for over three years to have lead contamination. Cleaned out of their community. Contamination came from the exile plant which melted down. Used lead acid car batteries. You don't want that in your backyard. But that's what these families had in their backyard which state regulators had allowed to operate on a temporary permit for more than three decades so state regulators like thirty. But you keep doing it. And then they kept letting them do it for over thirty years. It's crazy right. And what can i tell you. More about this. Despite history of air pollution and hazardous waste violations. They were still continued to operate ex. Able to operate it. California health department analysis found that nearly three hundred children under six years old living near exide have elevated blood lead levels in two thousand twelve. We've known this for a while. The last year the plant was in full operation in twenty twenty. A court allowed exide to walk away from its clean up responsibilities leaving us the taxpayers with the bill to clean this up and i wanted to echo this example or highlight these example because a heard of exits. Its own backyard but too because you see the failures of the government time and time again in airing on the side of corporations and this is an example of environmental racism at play and unfortunately as a nation points out this is. There's nothing you this has been happening for decades and decades and a few insights here about specifically about the us fifty six percent of the population. You're toxic waste. Sites are people of color. People of color have thirty eight percent higher nitrogen dioxide exposure compared to white people. There are two times more likely to live without potable water and modern sanitation and ninety five percent of people of color that have claims against polluters denied by The environmental protection
No More Noise: Turning Down the Volume on Cities
"During the pandemic open outdoor spaces like parks became even more essential on top of being the usual place for quiet. Walk to commune with nature. People were spending a lot more time outdoors and those who live near green spaces especially in urban areas appreciated them even more like the park surrounding the jamaica plain section of boston.

Remembering the Tiananmen Square Crackdown
"Which came 32 years ago today, when hundreds possibly thousands, died when China's Communist Party had used the People's Liberation Army to put a bloody end to the student led pro democracy protests. 1989. The date is always a flashpoint and nowhere is this more sensitive than the restive region of Hong Kong. Already a prominent pro democracy activist, Xiao Hong Kong, has been arrested by police there for promoting unauthorized assembly. The authorities say this year's event has been banned due to covid social distancing restrictions. Hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong residents would normally packed Victoria Park in a late night vigil. The BBC's Danny Vincent has this report from Hong Kong. For more than three decades. Ivy lie has marked every anniversary of the June 4th crackdown. She keeps copies of newspaper articles from that day under her bed, she does not forget. Hong Kong is the only place on Chinese soil that officially commemorates those that died in 1989. When the Army opened fire on pro democracy protesters. It's murder. It's a bloody massacre of Tiananmen Square. This year, the police have banned an annual visual marking the day they threatened to imprison anyone who defies covid 19 restrictions. Ivy becomes emotional at the thought of not being able to attend. Activists believe the pandemic is being used as an excuse to silence dissent. That the which, over the years I think that not being able to go to Victoria Park, Hong Kong people will be very upset. Yeah.

"Really Focused when i'm making sequences like it's really important to me that a record flow from top to bottom you know it's not a surprise when i think about that. I made a record where all the songs are connected like this one because it's always really really important to get them. I've left some of my favorite songs off records because as good as they were they didn't flow right. The record didn't work. I left chelsea off of recovering. The satellites one of the best things. I've ever written in my life and one of my favorites in that it was just this It's me on piano and spoke holes and a trio of horn players from new orleans. That were really good friends of mine. Just sax trumpet and trombone curtis watson who played the trumpets on angel. Fourteenth street brought to the guys from his band. The soul rebels brass band at the time and the four of us just did that song. But it's fucking incredible but then that piece of piano and horn kind of concerto didn't work. I could not find a way to fit it in recovering saturdays where it flowed and eventually i had to leave it off. I just it was upsetting but it was. I couldn't do. I did the same thing with baby. I'm a big star now. The phone we were on the end of i was going to ask you about that from rounders. Yeah well you know. It's because i don not anywhere by the way it's not no. I know that's my fault and i'll tell you what happened. I you know. I wrote colorblind like the day. After i wrote colorblind those guys came to me and asked me to come see a screening of their movie and showed me cruel intentions. And i said this is the weirdest thing but i think i wrote the perfect song for that scene last night. I don't even have demo. Jet will have to do it. So here's the escalator with ryan. Sleepy yeah i mean that's definitely going on our record and i already know it's on a soundtrack at a movie so a month later jon dahl comes and says i'm directing this movie Called rounders and i really want you to do a closing theme for us. It's like oh my god john doll. He's genius absolutely you know so they showed me rounders. I loved it and went. I wrote and i'm in the middle of recording this point but a lot while i'm recording and i just finished like before Colorblind i had just finished. Miss potter's lullaby which i also in the studio and I wrote baby on big star. Now we recorded it and it's just such a cool song. I loved it. But i know it's gone on the record and so i told people from rounders you can have this for the movie absolutely. I'm gonna give it to you. It's written for your movie. It's about your movie i just. You can't have it for the soundtrack album. Because i've already got one song on another record presume is going to be nothing on our record. This not like already somewhere else. No one's gonna wanna buy a record. But then when i went to sequence the record Get on eastern outfit on the record it just as long. It didn't work. I already had like this eight or nine minutes song and mrs potter's lullaby. All my friends is five minutes. Which i was a girl. There's all these long songs. I could not find a way to sequence it and have baby. I'm a big star and it did kind of stick out a little bit because it's not about the same stuff as the other songs and i left it off but the problem is because i didn't give them that song there's no soundtrack album. I think there's a score album for the movie. But there's no like soundtrack record. I don't think either way it wouldn't be on it. So where's the song. Is it hiding in bulgaria. How did on the end of the internet if the only place an is on the end of the movie. But don't you own the song. Yeah but i haven't put it out on anything. I love that song Put it all spotify. Just give it to them. It's easier said than done yearly. Never been on a record company. What do you think the chances are. They've lost it. Oh interesting i mean. Look bill i. I wanted some stuff from Recovering the satellites. When we were doing. I was looking for this piece of of one of the songs that i wanted to try and use on saturday nights when we did saturday and sunday mornings i. I couldn't get people to call me back and finally. They admitted to me that they had lost it. Because all of recovering satellites was gone because they never picked it up from the mixing studio. They have the when we when we finally mixed it for the last time. It was too hard because there's too many tracks and you had to use these slavery where you put to tape decks together to make something at the real pain in the of the guy who mixed it took everything over to digital forty eight track and just mixed it off that so he could do it on one board. They got the digital forty-eight tax back from the thing but they never picked up the two inches they just lost them then when they were done like at the very beginning forget storage. They lost them five minutes after we finished mixing and the forty eight tracks. Have the stuff we put on the record so the other stuff that was never mixed. Then let the stuff. We're working on songs. Were in the middle of there. Just gone then for years. Since we did recovering satellites 'cause we filmed like four different things The storyteller show live at ten spot. Both which are on that live album just half. Who did the alive video for pearl jam. Film the first concert which took the video of Angels of the silences from. It's a great concert film and then Watering valerie fairus and jonathan comparison. Valerie's who did a little miss sunshine. They ended like a documentary of us. While we're making the record. And so. I was like our tenth anniversary of that thing in two thousand and two. I called laibach. We wanna do a deluxe edition of recovering satellites for the ten th anniversary but we wanna lose film. We know there's not a lot of extra tracks is film stuff They wouldn't get back to me. They just kept putting all. We can't find it at somewhere. We'll look for years. Go by fifteen anniversary. I do Same thing asked for it. Nothing comes back. I don't know if you heard a few years ago. But it turned out there was a big fire point versus. Yeah and they haven't told anybody about the fire because they didn't want their embarrassing because they lost all this stuff Sale won't tell us what's lost. I don't know what's lost by. No they had fire. I have no idea if you have two choices you can either just just cut it out of the end around irs. Just release it. Like just remix it vega better or do the taylor swift and you just redo it. I've never. I've slept so hard for him because i sing everything so differently the day after we get out of the studio. Yeah that thought we we. Should we recorded everything years ago. But i'm afraid it wouldn't sound anything like the records at all in a weird way it makes the song it gives it an extra up. 'cause it's just like it's gone it's just you have to watch the routers that silly please could hear it i did. I did it like a few like last year sometime. I literally put on the end of the movie. Because i was dying here. The song yeah. It's really good. This episode is brought to you. By castro. castro performance starts in. The garage is where you take care of business re.

"Of them really. I mean we were all. We were all in other bands. I met them. Dave bryson after my first band split up. I decided i didn't wanna play music anymore. It's kind of like my first experience. It's hard running a band. You end up fighting with your friends. I realized. now it's just part of it yet. The first time that happens it was kinda hard. i mean. honestly it's what separates people who do things for hobbies from people who do things for their life the hobbies just for fun and with the first time that you run up against something. That's not fun. It's a big thing you gotta get over. And i had a problem with that. I decided to like earn. A bunch of money and go backpacking around europe and quit playing music and then get on with my life. Ac- you're one of those guys. Yeah i went to go play. I want to go backpacking around europe. But as soon as ethan hawke in reality bites little bit you know but when i landed in europe immer joined a caravan. Beethoven went on tour opening for ten thousand bucks. And i was like. Oh fuck you man. That sounds awesome. He's playing the greek theater on the okay. I got to go back home. I i was away for a few months. And i was like i can't do anymore. I gotta go play music. But the night before i left i'd gotten together with some friends and they introduced me again today. Bryson who i'd met when he was doing sound for one of my bands once and we started doing some stuff together so i kinda had something to come back to and all the other guys. They played in other bands that we like open for or closed for. I do dan. And charlie they were in the sky winning winningham ban. They later released tender mercies record few years ago but that was really good. Kinda country gospel You know bowman. I knew from another band called matt affair Char doesn't matt was in day bryson's old band and then eventually when we got jimbo just i've known him for years. He played november gamer and he also played with sheryl crow Yeah so emmer. And i have been friends from the very beginning. He plays on the first forty five i ever made. We'd always want to be in a band together and we just soon we'd start one one day but once i got into counting crows. I wasn't leaving so we had to decide that he was gonna join our band which we'd go. It's crazy about it. Is you had so many songs for the first album. Mike you left stuff off that became in a couple cases. Some of people's favorite songs from the band. I don't. I don't understand how you were that prolific with the first album. Well i mean. I had been writing songs for all and i think that I'd been in some really good bands. And i tried to bring those songs to the band's around here isn't even a it was a himalayan song The other ones you know. They're the ones that didn't end up on the record. I think they're really tuneful They're pretty cool melodic early. I don't think there were anything. We really would have even considered for the first album. some of the demos ones. There's a song called the forty years. There's another one called love and addiction. You know we didn't even really consider those songs for the first record. Einstein on the beach was never even considered what about marjorie marjorie was margerie. We tried to make on the first album and tried to make on the second album. the w- marjorie. He's got a different problem. It's just got a structure problem. It's a really cool verse. It doesn't really have a chorus. Had this refrain if built to in a really cool way it just marjorie and shallow days. I thought we're both really good. They just had some structural problems that we realize when we went to record them. That kind of they just didn't work so you're thinking about that album. How all the songs almost like a batting order in baseball. And if you put the wrong even if it's a good song on its own you put that song in batting order in. It's kind of screws up the apple. We and i think one of the reasons. We've never made bad albums. As i have a really high bar and really strict about like what goes on record some of those songs. Even though they're really great melodies and their tuneful they just didn't mean enough to me. You know it's gotta really mean something and like like einstein on the beach which is a great song. Really catchy piece of pop. It was me trying to learn how to write a pop song. And i love it but it it. It's more clever than it is meaningful and i never even considered it for the first record. I have the marjorie story. I bet you don't get that a lot Member at this was the the mid nineties were the era of bootleg cds. Were you get 'cause we didn't have the internet and there was this place in boston. it used to salome. And there's a counting crows. Like a. I've i remember. I was one cd or two but it was some some concert you played in europe and marjorie was on it and as songs i. I can't believe they put the song in the album. And also it's like it's really dark. What the darkest woods you've done. It's like it's actually like a short story But anyway somebody broke into my car two years later and they took like my twelve best sees including that one it was gone. There is no record of it. As i go so then years later they had they had this psalm marjorie and then all the sudden the spotify here. Now it's back. Did they released like some massive august in that exact song to be on the thing is now you can find it on spotify and was a live performance of as good but it was a must be weird for you that the songs can just come back to life in this weird way the internet era but those demos that we made it. I got out the demos that got sign had all those songs on them. You know they got out early on. I think it was called. I think the bootleg was called flying demos. So people have had those and they're got on the internet pretty early I mean i've actually gone. There were things. I was looking for that i had found on the internet. I defined the internet myself. The i hadn't i hadn't heard version of august and everything after for years the song. And when i wanted to play at one point like i don't know like maybe two round the millennium our fears later. I had to find that on the internet are webmaster what that might be one where i actually went on twitter. And said hey. I can't find a copy this long. Anyone got in. Somebody's like yeah. I got it here. He sent me an mp three. I can't remember case One of those songs. I had there are a couple that i was looking for at one. I've only found through the internet. So when you're laying at the first album and you go round here in omaha back to back which e. It's really hard for an album the do this. And it's like rarified territory where the first two songs set some sort of mood in this. This album for some reason is just like throw this on on a road trip on a train. I'm moving in some way you put it on and it's like the perfect thing to start. Do you know that as you're picking the songs do you. Do you think about what should be for you because it seems like. You're the type of guy who would upset. I don't know that it's going to work. But i'm really.

"Mobile it never made sense to have differentiated content because that content needed to be everywhere so whereas amazon can credibly say yeah. We're quietest had content. That's going to be available to the entire market and is going to accrue to other businesses. Now you can make the case. It's still too much in their waste. Too much money on it. But at least it is a business argument that makes sense given the nature of the business of trying to drive unlike. At and t. which you know honestly never made. That's at all not not for a single moment. Can we do mergers speed round most likely merger for you. What's the next one. Oh ever says comcast universal. Yeah well i think in the entertainment industry i Comcast universal and i would also say viacom Are are both sorta just sitting out there. Universal particular is in a in a pretty weak position. I think that makes a lot of sense to combine with this new discovery bit. There's obviously you'd have to spin off some of the news channels because there will be some overlap there but to me that that's what makes the most sense e discovery. Time warner critically. Don't have a broadcast network. And i still think it'd be very difficult to combine. Cbs and nbc for example abc. Or whatever so the fact that they don't To me makes that the the most obvious sort of Sort of wink. Wink wink up any other ones. What about by the have no inside information on this. Obviously i. i'm i worked for one of the two companies but wouldn't spotify netflix. Be the ultimate like that's one where it would be like holy shit those two video and audio together why you have to raise. The question like what is actually being gained awake. Modifying netflix's for is always the question mergers which is could you have accomplished the same strategic goals by just doing a partnership and netflixing spotify already do partnerships. They they you know where you can. I think college one where you can subscribe to both and you get a cheaper price and if you think about it like what. What other benefits do you sort of want. I mean the at the end of the day they're there and people can subscribe to both and then you don't have to deal with all the expense and cost of actually making an acquisition but if you're talking comcast universal an animal because that's a one plus one equals three from a scale standpoint. Absolutely you you have to get to scale and it's not sustainable to have all these streaming networks is not stained will be small so one of them has to bulk up. What is the point of amazon spending as much money as they spent on thursday night football. In your mind. Well that's it. That's even crazy to me. I don't i don't understand do they. Are they gonna add subscribers with that. I don't get it well. If interesting thing about why. Netflix does not do sports. Which is now flicks. What netflix offers. You is streaming. And so when they acquire content that content is attractive not just to their current subscribers. Who watch the moment it drops but that content in library forever and it's it's a reason to subscribe going forward like there's deficits i've never watched are on my whist. I'd like to get to him someday. Right so that's why they would never acquire sports amazon on the other hand. Wants you to buy more stuff right like their payoff is sort of just getting they care much more about the customer acquisition part of it than they do about necessarily needing they're streaming service belong to monitor streaming on netflix. That is their business and so they have to think in that regard whereas amazon is this massive sort of offering and they want to date sort of want to take a tax of your entire life. That's happens on skull right. They computing power. That you're the take a little bit of your buying power they just shipping etc etc. And so yeah it is. I think just some people aren't subscribe yet and particularly to get exclusive games. That's just a way to get more. You know get more customers. I think it'll out. Imagine that amazon's very data driven. They already sort of had. A non exclusive basis. I guess it probably worked. And now now they're gonna have exclusive games. There's a big difference you know. I think they probably suspect is just going to drive that many more than more subscribers. And it's not. It's not just that it's not just acquiring subscribers but getting subscribers using prime like get. You'll get prime installing on your tv. Get prime video. Acquire a prime video stick. Whatever might be get prime video on your on your roku and now you're watching other prime shows. You already used to going to the app. So there's payoffs that come not just from the events also sort of reshaping customer behavior in a way that sort of a cruise to you in the long run. So they're hoping to get like bob from saint louis who's not an amazon prime member yet but the rams are of saint louis as bad. They don't have a team. Let me do. That are saint louis From kansas city. Full sarah saint louis. That was really. That was not intentional. That was not an intentional dry Bob from kansas city. Who wants the chiefs. Does that amazon and is like all right. Cool i need. I need to see the chiefs. Sanal he's on amazon now is like. Hey what's the same. As on prime and now they have them. They're hooked so this. Actually you actually raise a really interesting point so number one. It's not just the guy that signs up for the first time but the guy who's already a prime customer but doesn't watch prime video like this is the reason why i already have this great. Let me go install it watch. Cetera et cetera. The interesting thing this is where the nfl is. So smart is bob in. kansas city. Actually has nothing to worry about because they will still show the game..

"Already have combined with tnt which is obviously a big sports property combined with cnn with with all these different other pieces and so there's a they're going to actually improve their cash flow significantly with cable still exists like it's still out there. It's definitely declining. But there's still a lot of money there and that's actually a very nice fit with their sort of attempt sort of build a streaming service and and so they're actually well-placed there might be more mergers. Is something definitely. Keep an eye on comcast know. Comcast and universal looks very lonely Sita's viacom looks pretty. Lonely will see you go through this process in tack and business. Where stuff unbundle right. The internet internet comes along everything breaks apart but then it reforms into bundling b be because bundles make a lot of sense. They make sense for consumers they make sense for producers the make sense for distributors. And what we're going through a is going to come out is like three streaming services. Max and the we were going to lose a lot of money on the way but we're going to end up in a place where you're paying about as much as you did before you're just paying different people and and and i think you can see that starting to take shape here. Well the irony is. That's what i grew up with with three major networks and now we have three major networks is just. We have net flicks. We've disney and it almost mirrors like the college sports scene right where we have a bunch of people that were like mid majors. You're a great analogy. Somebody that won the The lack and it's like well you guys actually Win the tight. That's what made what gonzaga did so amazing is like they actually were able to transcend that but It the disney net flicks are the sec in big tent. Like they're they're yeah. They're going to be fine. No matter what like everyone else is sort of trying to figure it out rate and hbo. Max which. I agree with you and i actually think. Hbo got out of this pretty unscathed. 'cause they still have really good content. I'm a little bias. We have a thing there but The hbo max thing is just like this weird conglomerate of all these different things. They shouldn't have just not called at hbo. Max they should have called it. Like i don't know the orange work i would pick a name if peak phone company thinking. It's like i know that name we're just gonna inward a slap it out there. Is he just like the phone. Company wins because you have no choice right right. they're inherently terrible marketers and we certainly saw saw that happen there. So i guess what you would say is. Nobody wants to be amid major. Everyone is just gonna end up. Maybe we have four major things instead of three but nobody wants to be were. hbo maxwell which. I don't know. I didn't see this confirm but people are saying that if you really look at it. They had like twenty million ups. Right like a really. You're removing all like you get free. Hbo for year on this stuff. It's like an audience at twenty million. You can't competing ends disney. That's already over one hundred have no chance the This is always innocent. Mistake the product. All these folks are going to face. Which is if you're starting late. The when you think about. There's a piece of content out there right and they all want it. Well i can say okay. We're going to spread this content over hundreds of millions of users right and so our price per subscriber for this content is quite low disney can say oh we have you know nine figures subscribers are price content is quite low these other guys come in and they're subscale and so they're their price content price per subscriber. I should say is is way higher relatively speaking. That's number one but number two. You can get away with that if you're like amazon or a startup in evidence quite large now actually as well because you're building business and people will invest in you just like the invest in net flicks the stock market. You've netflix or the detmer has to stay in the stock market tolerated. It's all this money to sort of build up position the problem. If you're an existing studio is your not just paying extra on a per subscriber basis for content. You're not getting paid extra by everyone else to sell. Your content and sony is actually very underrated in this regard. Where sony they cut a deal net flicks a little bit ago and they also deal with disney. So they're keeping the window. Where like the first run on streaming will be a net flicks in the second run movie and disney and they're double dipping on all their content and their contents like gold because all these streaming services need it and so not only. Is sony not wasting tons of money on buying content. They're making tons of money by selling content in doing what they're good at. They're good at making content. They're not good at running a customer service business. They're not good at marketing. And that's that's the other mistake all these studios are making it. So they're gonna come back at some point. I wrote a couple years ago. That net is going to have sort of a rough years. But they're going to actually come out of this far far stronger. And i think that's exactly what's happening. Where yeah all this competition. And they're paying more for content they would like to and and know people's attentions divided but at at some point. These folks are gonna come to their senses. Just like at and t. Did realize this is a massive waste of money. Not just what you're spending but in you're not making in other startling enough again and then fox is going to be is going to be great well and then you have amazon and apple who tried to get into content thing but they kind.

I got it and i think that's a rather have him taking those shots than than particularly grant and so to me. That's what i would do but again You ought to goes. I mean holiday obliterated also in those two brooklyn games a month ago i mean so we know holiday can actually handle carry by. You know we'll have to see how hard and handles it. But that's my initial thinking is is put it on kyrie shoulders. Carey wants it. You have a chance to sort of disrupt the chemistry of brooklyn along the way. And i think that's all i would approach it interesting. I love that you just casually did the throwaway line about how Kyrie in the playoffs against you guys. I mean two years ago on my my team. He didn't show up. He was probably the main reason you guys won the series and widow. Bother me as if it goes the next round. And it's like brooklyn milwaukee kyri looking for a little revenge for their still revenge. She's not an celtics anywhere week. We don't get revenge out of this. I could care less what happens with him. I i would put him on Output how kyri so. I disagree i. I think he can take him out. I think they can throw enough people at durant where They're not gonna take duran out. They're not going to shut them down but they'll make them work it he will. He'll get to his thirty but it will take time. They'll be a bunch of people on a janas in the middle. And then i think you you have to make hard in the one that beats you. Because i actually think logic you have but if hardens doing the one on one. I've got to be the one who scores. That's not great for for durant kyrie right if kyrie's in his head because he's got holiday on him i think he's you throw lengthened harden and if he goes to the lane you of janas to protect the lane so then the only question is the foul trouble but it would be an awesome second round series. And i think the best thing you have gone for you is brooklyn just hasn't played with each other enough. You could feel it in that game. We don't we're taping this four game tonight but you know they. They went all one on one game. One against the celtics. Then they eventually figured it out but the lack of reps. He could see the lakers two in game. One the lack of reps versus what you have where y- you know. Say what you want about coach bud at this point but there has been a system in place. The two best players have been playing together for a long time. The rope wears on over. There are how they can fit in anywhere. And i just think you have more stability than that's yeah. He does get to our other big weakness though. Not the weakest number. One is bud without question. you know he has found that 'cause i don't think people fully understand. Well i think that by is a brilliant for razor. He really is an and he was the sort of coach at milwaukee needed coming off. Jason kidd like he professionalized the team. He makes you. You weren't a play a certain way as best as you as you can and you're going to be an incredible regular season team urine you're out. You're seeing this throughout his career. I think the challenges in the playoffs you have to adjust not just game to game a quarter to quarter and he's just doesn't adjust quickly and when he does it's not always adjustments that sort of make make complete sense lie and i think you see these some coaches that are just more system oriented court coaches and fans obsessive in game decisions and they they don't see all the other stuff and i think in that case bud does a bit of a bad rap all the other stuff. He's he's great at building. A program i think but the in game adjustments just don't seem to make sense and or happen to slowly i think is is the thing that happens and he and there's also a thing where he wants he wants to do a system instead of pounding mismatches and i think this is a big problem in the last few years where t teams will load up against jaanus and there wasn't a sense where you don't wait if they're going to guard. Chris middleton with the shooting guard like throat. Melton in the high post or the or the mid post and let him shoot around all day long. Is that a is that inefficient saadallah. The regular season while chris milton it actually kind of is even makes them but at some point you just gotta make a team pay for playing you a certain way. And that's not an approach he's traditionally taken but we'll see there are some good signs. I mean this is what. I'm talking to myself it You know the top player forty five minutes in game one which is a big improvement Game two they started to hunt You know robinson and dragging more which they didn't do in game one point my hair out in game one but but but so. Hopefully there is some changes there. They've changed the offense a little bit to give your honest more pressure releases against the wall. And so we'll see but you know the other problem is the off guard. It's that second guard dante. Could he'll trust who does not. I'll tell you that yeah be. the problem. is dante kind of he makes three or four game. That are just incredible. Like he's got a definitely has the instincts but also makes three or four plays that just make no sense at all He he shoots layups differently. Every time you take someone you never know it's gonna get connotation is just a you know he just jumps all over the place on defense. He's not reliable. On that and it all forbes gets picked on the first brooklyn milwaukee game brooklyn attacked forbes like eight possessions in the road.
"three decades" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"A few hours ago but just in case something wacky happened. The to la games lay that. Of course they did. The lakers ended up winning the beat. The suns it looked a little hairy there for a second there. Were playing a lot of marcus saw but With chris paul. You know barely able to do anything that one felt like. That was gonna be the lakers. Night the shocker was mavericks clippers. Coed comes out puts up thirty in the first half. He was in the all time. There's no fucking way we're losing this game zone. He's a finals. Mvp he's one of the best thirty to thirty five years ever and he was just like we're not losing that game. Lucas like cool. Well we're not lose this game either. Luca danni which is he's twenty two years old. I think from a hoops. I q combined with presence slash talent slash just ability to dissect the other team. He's the most i've ever seen. I mean we knew this heading into the playoffs. This is probably true. What he's done to the clippers needs to games from a basketball intelligence point is simply staggering. He broke the clippers brain tonight. The clippers co. I was fourteen for twenty one for forty one points. Paul georgia's twelve for twenty two for twenty eight point so their best to players lit up. They shot almost fifty four percent for the game and they lost in. The game was basically over with a minute left. Luca put up thirty nine. He was sixteen for twenty nine seven turnovers. Seven rebound seven says controlled everything. They threw everything they had at him and he just saw it over and over and over again and you know. It's hard not to compare to lebron. Because i remember when the bronze at this point with miami second and third year where he just kind of figured it out. He became acquainted chessboard. He solved get an answer for basically every single thing. The other team is going to throw it. He just says he put into his crazy basketball computer brain and then combined with his physical gifts stats on. His career. Went to hold their level And he was already great to begin with the luca thing. The fact that he's doing this at the is at with the lack of reps that he has this was his eighth playoff game ever The other team had co. I paul george nick tomb. They're throwing patrick. Beverley adam terrence man was on him a little bit and none of a battered. And he's just he's looking at them. Like he's peyton manning at the land of scrimmage You know in the mid-2000s going. Oh they're doing this. Oh that safety came up. Oh all right. Hey reggie weyand. Instead of doing the cross dune in out and go go toward the sideline. he's just setting it in the moment in the cooper said know what to do you think about the game winning three that they got. It's basically a wide open shop. Because luka has psyched out the clippers to the point that you know they're they're coming over there's a switch their w they're they're just completely discombobulated. I it was unbelievable and You know it wasn't even like look it wasn't like she had an espn classic fourth corey. A couple of mistakes. Missed couple shots that he had done so much damage to that point. He had some running mates he got a. He got nine for fourteen from hardaway. Twenty eight points. He made six threes porzingas even played pretty. Well it for twelve. What's happening with them. Three things they know who they are. They have guys that they play. Each guy knows what their roles even somebody like porzingas who i talked about a kind of shitty look on his face. This season Even he bought in at that was the happiest in most gregarious. We've seen porzingas in a mavs uniform in two years near the end of that game With playing with somebody who's as great as luke. Is you know at some point if you go on as either you just kinda sit around waiting for that guy to carry you over and over again or sent by osmosis. You've become better. He's making a better but you also have this confidence because you're on the team with this awesome guy. We see this happen in high school. We see it happen in college you and sometimes rarely but sometimes it happens in the pros now. The question is why wasn't that also happening with the clippers with kawai with his own that he was in. And you saw tonight. This is a team that does not know who they are. They really don't. They're they're throwing shit against the while of the bitter terrence man who we were calling a play on sunday didn't play in the first half another damn doesn't play in the first three half of the series in the fourth quarter at sea. He seemed like he played the last fifteen minutes of the game. This have them out there. Reggie jackson plays thirty minutes Morris place twenty-five zoo batch twenty two. Beverly twenty-three rondo nineteen nineteen. They have no idea who their best five guys are. And they're throwing shade against the wall and with the result is basically what happened. Where leonard and george had to really good offensive games And they don't really know what they're going to get from everywhere else from everyone else in the team. This is an unbelievable unbelievable subplot with them where they went one playoff series last year this year. They tanked the last couple of games so they could play dallas and get out of the lakers division and meanwhile they willingly chose to go against luca. Who's the best twenty two year old basketball player.

Increases in Extreme Precipitation Cost the U.S. $73 Billion
"Torrential. Rainstorms can flood homes. Wash out roads and bridges and destroy crops over the past. Three decades flooding from heavy precipitation has caused about two hundred billion dollars of damage in the. Us francis davenport is a phd student. In earth system science at stanford university. She wanted to know how much of that enormous price tag can be blamed on global warming. We've seen that extreme precipitation events are increasing in frequency or intensity and so we wanted to quantify what are the financial costs of those changes in precipitation. Her team analyzed historic rainfall trends and financial data about flood damages over decades. They estimated that between nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight and twenty seventeen about seventy three billion dollars. A flood damage can be attributed to increases in extreme precipitation. That's more than a third of the cost of flooding over those thirty years. So devonport says that people are already paying the financial cost of warming world. I think having those hard dollar amounts is really important for some of these policy conversations about what to do.

Can have a life and he's got Gwen, and then Goblin goes crazy. And it's not even that Goblin kills her. And it's not even a she dies because they're, it's just bought a physics and he did everything he could to save her and he still didn't have enough. That's what he kicked himself for the next three decades. Exactly that. You know, that's, that's well, that's me to put it. You'll find a way to kill him.

Unforgivable: Jailed former gang members come out as gay
"A new documentary takes us inside a salvadoran prison and into the world of former gang members who are now a gay a few years ago. Something unusual and kind of incredible happened in prison in western el salvador. The prison was called some francisco. Go out there. And it was entirely dedicated to holding members of el salvador's notorious gangs. Ms thirteen and the eighteenth street gang over the past three decades. These gangs have been in an informal war that is turned el salvador into one of the most violent countries in the world and has forced thousands of salvadorans to leave their country in two thousand seventeen. Nearly all of the inmates inside the prison san francisco go data withdrew from their gangs and converted to christianity evangelical. Churches came to control every part of the prison every part except for one a small isolation block where inmates are locked in around the clock for a variety of reasons and in that isolation block nine men have chosen to live in a single tiny cell about a yard by two yard because they've made a decision. That's unforgivable both to the gangs they were once a part of and to the evangelical church. These men are gay and they've decided not to hide it
Women Making A Difference In The Community
"Ladies. Thank you for joining me today here. Yeah it's great to get time to sit down with you guys you know. It seems like we were talking about before we jumped on. The schedules are crazy right now. It almost seems like it's busier now than it ever was before all running in different directions. So it's nice to get a few minutes to sit down and chat. I was wondering if we could jump in. And maybe start with you chris because There's a a very long history between our companies that may even go back and predate you some extent so back thirty plus years ago. My mom worked with richie on the It was his first location for believe it was everything. Yogurt won't think they landed on the staten island mall back. Then you know going back. Three decades plus and watching what you've grown into a several hundred acre amazing campus millions of square feet of hotel hospitality restaurants offices. What has it been like. You know being part of a team. That's grown so exponentially over the last thirty years. Well i've been so blessed to know. The nicole davis since nineteen ninety eight when i worked elsewhere awesome just i knew them as magnificent. Staten islanders and abso- impressed with them as business. People came to work with them in two thousand and eight. And since then i will say that they. They are wonderful business. People there magnanimous people. They're also great teachers. So james one of the things that's been such the the benefit that i can't list in the employee handbook is how much i've learned from them every single day since i started here If i'm being honest and candid nothing in my career or education would have would have said a perfect fit to work in real estate and hospitality. My degrees were in it But what they do is they have such vision. And i think going back to those everything yogurt days you could see it then in nineteen seventy six to say you know what the fast food market is missing healthy food back in the seventies when would to S food chain in. We have very limited offering. You wouldn't be getting a side salad. That's for sure but richard nicole tra- saw an opening in the market.

Voting Firms Turn To Defamation Lawsuits To Counter False Claims
"And another election Cos. Smartmatic have also filed defamation lawsuits against Trump allies and pro trump media companies with more likely to come. Bill Adair runs the journalism program of Duke University and founded the fact checking website politic Fact, I think this is a completely new Way of tackling misinformation as a journalist. I am I'm a little bit nervous. The idea of using defamation lawsuits makes us a little bit concerned. In particular, he's worried defamation suits could become a weapon against journalists just doing their jobs. But in the current moment, he's come to believe they have a role to play. We need to incentivize truth and we need to de incentivize. Lying money is what matters to AH Media company. Defamation lawsuit is a big way to do that. The suits appear to be having an effect. An anchor for Newsmax walked out on a live interview with the My Pillow CEO when he started making false claims about Dominion voting machines. Can we get out of here, please? But defamation lawsuits are difficult to win. You need to show the person knew or should have known a statement was false when they made it. George Freeman spent three decades defending people against defamation lawsuits as the in house counsel for the New York Times, He says media organizations have a First Amendment right to report on what important people say, even if it may be untrue. But he says the pro trump outlets like Newsmax and away in May have crossed a legal line by amplifying and appearing to endorse obvious falsehoods. They haven't stepped back, although I don't now. Your signs that they're starting to because they're worried about liability, and I think that's a good thing. Still, Freeman thinks the strongest defamation case is against Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. He made certain accusations on TV. But then he didn't make those in court because I think he knew you would be subject to discipline and perjury if you made them an official documents, so that would seem to be pretty good evidence that he knew they were false. Yet there are reasons why defamation cases aren't filed more often. Many conspiracy theories don't target a specific person or company and the cases can take years to go through the courts, so it's likely when the next presidential election begins. These lawsuits about the 2020 election will still be grinding along.
Meteorite recovered in the UK after spectacular fireball in the sky
"On the final day of february people in some parts of the uk were treated to a celestial light show as a meteor streaked in from space hundreds of videos viable have since been posted online by amateur photographers. We'll see even more special by analyzing the footage multiple networks of cameras for the first time in three decades in the uk the coporate and as it turns out very rare space rock the caused all this was successfully tracked down and recovered from someone's driveway. Phil sansom spoke to the uk meteo observation networks. Mary mcintyre to hear how it happened. There was a really bright fireball picked up across multiple networks. A week ago on sunday and later in the week we found out the in meteorite fight being recovered and this is an incredibly thing to happen in the uk actually even in the world to recover meteorite that's been seen as a fireball quite ready then we found out that it's one of an extremely rag kind of meteorite just so many special things and we just haven't been able to sleep because we're just so excited such a huge win for citizen science. It really was. Wow and you didn't even know what was coming. Did you just sort of appeared as a flash right. Yeah these things. You can't predict them. They're entirely random pieces of space debris and this one was really unusual because it was captured by so many cameras across the because we had a clear sky across the country. What does it look like. Is it just a bright. The whole sky lynx up or is there like an angle you can see and that's how you figure out where he's going. It depends way you see it from our camera so it was heading straight for us so actually on our camera was just an enormous flash and it was really difficult. Get any data from it. Because she couldn't see a flight path but there's a guy called rigid fleet down in wiltshire. Who caught it side on is the most phenomenal bright thing. Streaking across the sky just resulted in this enormous kind of explosion and it fragmented. We could see that there were multiple fragments there and won't she kind of do the calculations behind the scenes. They can figure out the speed. It was moving the angle through the atmosphere. It's exact path before it been up and once you do all that they can also figure out the mass. And once she know the mashed you can then calculate whether something may have survived and landed the normally something like that would be kind of kept quiet for fear of contamination but because of covid and the fact that the area that they think it landed was basically lots of farmland in the cox worlds. None of us are thought for a second that this would get recovered and if it was recovered not for many days when it been rained on all that stuff so it was. It was just incredible. It could have gone in a stream. I'm guessing it could have gone a sheep's trough and cheap eight it. Many fables in the k. Are thought to survive but the end up in the sea because the small island so who actually found dead and how one of the homeowners at actually heard third on their drives the previous your house and they just didn't think anything of it but once the natural history museum per hour video to local saint. If you see anything please have a look and they went out and there was a fragment some dust and kind of black raise on driveway. And i think a fragment bounced over the the walter. Next door's garden wants. People arrived on the scene from wednesday onwards. There was like a fingertip search of the area remote fragments being found in. We've now found about hundred grams of this. Which is just extraordinary. You said that not only was it. Amazing space rock. It's also a very special kind of space rock. It is it's it's a type of meteorite called a carbonaceous conned right and they're really important because most of them originate from the asteroid belt asteroids themselves the old because that leftover material from when the solar system formed four point five billion years ago. But what's amazing about carbonaceous conroy's they have these tiny little of material that actually predates our solar system some of them have organic materials amino acids in them and to get a sample that is really pristine like this is incredibly rare and so important for scientists to kind of analyze the material and find out the origins of our solar system and before also system. It's just being one of the most amazing stories of the decade and the hasn't been a full that's been found for thirty s in the uk. So it's amazing and what's funny as well as aren't their missions. Going on right now. Sending probes up to asteroids way out in space desperate to try and get any sort of sample from them. And we've just had one line right at our doorstep. It is well. There was actually a mission to the asteroid a writer and the quality of the some police comparible without sample return mission from right and they brought by lake tiny amounts of asteroids. And we've got four hundred grams of this. I mean you can't rely on them landing as a way of analyzing them because it just doesn't happen very often. I take me found all the time. But they've been led on the ground. Who knows how long. And still quite believe israel i just honestly when i found out i just cried because such an amazing
"three decades" Discussed on Native America Calling
"And get and rested from the science world. That for for most of it was.

"Having a more. In depth conversation about him and about how others may regard him. So I, I think all of those things are inside most black people that I know. You know, there is a space within us that as you have, we have experienced police violence in some type of way, whether it was personally or through a third party, you know, someone else is experience. And so I think a lot of that was always in there. So that was unleashed to there's also another black cultural thread in the series which has to do with Latrice in the butlers and their relationship with God. Let's play one more clip in the time we have left this Latrice in a confrontation with pastor Adler who's played by Ron Canada from seven seconds. God didn't run my son down in the street and leave him to die. A man did the trees. I've seen a lot of people through this sort of thing. It's rough, but the ones who come out of it who keep their heads above water, they lean into you. I was in that church singing his praises while my son was dying in a dish lean. You want me to lean. I never prayed for anything harder in my life, inform us on the live all the while. Somebody else was praying for him to die. So I'm done praying to God who answers a murderer over a mother. Those are pretty strong seen Regina to include in very different from what we typically see for how black families deal with tragedy in dramas that revolve around them in their faith. Yes, very different. But also very real, you know, and I applaud Veena Sood of the creator of the show in the writers for digging in deep, but that that's one of the things I think that was fascinating about the role of Latrice is that while just when you just give a description of the character, a woman who's lost her child be to to a police cover up, but that. She so much more than that, and I appreciate it. That in that Vena was able to find this woman and this this couple that did not have the perfect relationship that while they were this, this God fearing couple, they had troubles within their relationship and those things don't go away just because this tragic tragedies occurred and you know, how do you, how do you explain that to your heart and to see this woman struggle with that is something that a lot of people who are religious, especially, you know, in the black community of that are religious in in the black community feel but don't speak about because it's blasphemous in some way. And then we go to let you go in a moment. I know you've got some new projects coming up. You've got the upcoming. Drama if Beale street to talk, which is based on the novel by James Baldwin berry Jenkins who directed moonlight is directing this also and Bill had the question about another project that's coming up, which I'll ask you before we let you go. Bill asks, is there anything Regina can tell us about her upcoming role on the new watchmen series on HBO. I wish I could feel I can't wait to be able to, but I will say this. We are in this alternate. Universes such a strong word but alternate space. And I think it is going to be a again, another opportunity for Damon to have provocative storytelling, but have moments that make you go. Hm. Hm, because fans the graphic novel, watch the movie and walked away feeling a little flat. So we're looking forward to the series. I would hope that that's not how you feel. Regina king EMMY winning and EMMY nominated actress. Her latest project is seven seconds on Netflix, Regina. We appreciate you sharing your stories with us, and thanks very much for talking to us.

Yeah, I mean, people I always try to say never say never, but I think there's so much legal stuff involved with that. And you know who owns what? And. Yeah, it's just it's just unfortunate, but Aaron was I think, very honest about his role in it. You know, times when I was speak to him and he just he needed to exit that situation. So his soul could be right. And after that, you know, Aaron went on to have twins, and then another child and it just it just kind of it's interesting how the universe works that way, you know he and his wife were trying before that. And then after that situation removed itself from itself from the from from his his world, other things opened up. Why would say for those who've never seen the boondocks just go watch the Martin Luther King episode. Dow just watch watch that one. That was that was my first episode of boondocks, that was my, yes. I saw that the night it came out. I was. Here in DC would room full of thirty brothers and the whole room got quite as Connecticut. And we watched the episode and I was shook. I was not ready to see, but it was if you've never seen boondocks, just go watch the Martin Luther King episode and all of your black friends will pull thank you for trust me. Yeah, let's let's talk about your current work. You'll latest role in the Netflix drama, seven seconds. It's a limited series that tells the story of Brenton Butler who is a black teenage boy who was killed in a hit and run by a police officer who is white. Now, Regina king plays Latrice Butler, Brenton's mother. It's the role for which she earned her. Fourth EMMY nomination. Here is a piece of Regina kings performance. This is Latrice confronting the officer who ran over her son and left him to die Layton for this moon for a long time. I thought I'd want to see you in handcuffs. Seem drag you to the streets to pay for what you did to my son. Right now. Just wanna know of. He was scared. It was paying. If we call for me. To know those last minutes were for him, Regina king as Latrice Butler in seven seconds. What is it like to kind of deal with a role that heavy as an actor? This character is dealing with a lot of anger and a lot of grief how you channel that as an actor and not have it kind of drown you cou way. I mean, there was a heavy six months shooting that show. I will say. I. Oh. Honestly, because of. I've been asked that question and I don't the answer still hasn't changed. You know, sometimes you're asked something and then when you're asked again, you've been able to think about it a little bit more. And so your answer may shift a bit. I feel like a lot of that was in me because of the relationship between the black community in the police growing up that that that that we had growing up and that was very. Extra sensitive for me having a son and just the fears and concerns that I've always had regarding police violence once. Bye. Son became a teenager because honestly, I don't think I really you thinking about so many other things as you're as you're raising a child. And then that moment comes for for black parents when the who specially parents of sons that you realize it. Oh, wow. Yeah. Now I've got a start..

"Right? All women are not hose. We're talking twenty twenty-five percent tops. Okay. But if they not all hose than what I got the pay to take them out to eight thin clip from the boondocks. Regina. How did you come to be involved in boondocks so much fun boys? I'll bet. Yeah. I actually I dish ind for Riley and I. After I got the part of Riley, they Aaron was trying to find Huey, Aaron, mcgruder, Korean air mcgruder. Yes, the great Aaron mcgruder. He was trying to find an actor actress or actor for Huey, and I don't know if a lot of people know, but a lot of times with voices that are boys, a lot of the voices are women because they, there are voices, don't change. Whereas if you actually hired a boy, there's a good possibility that the voices going to change. So I did not know that includes shows like the Simpsons, Nancy Cartwright has played Bart Simpson since the show began. Yes, yes. And I didn't know that in Aaron shared that with me when after I got in the part of Riley, so I was additioning I would read Riley with several different performers during that audition process. And I would say a few months went by and they hadn't found Huey and towed Aaron will do, you know, let me audition for Hugh, you know, I've been listening to. To your notes and listening to the things that you want and the cadence that you're looking for just, you know, give me a shot. So I went in and auditioned for Hughie. And as you hear Hueys voices more like mine is just kind of me changing the cadence. You know, like taking breaths in places that a kid would take breath. You know when when kids speak there. They they, they breathe in pause in different places than you do is in adult. And so yeah, that's how that's how it worked out. And in the addition, they asked me, what did I think I could go back and forth between Huey and Riley. So I said, I'll give it a shot and I did in the dish in and I think that also helped solidify, I think Aaron thought that brothers kind kinda sound similar anyway. You know, if you talked to my sister Raina depending on who picks up the phone, you may not know who and we're four years apart. So I think that that worked out in my favor, it's interesting and for those who don't know, we should say Huey is ten years old. The show Riley's eighth or two brothers who move from Chicago to a suburb called woodcrafts to live with their Granddad and try to keep them out of trouble with which they meet mixed success. I hear boondocks compared to another show for. A number of reasons and Chris touched on that in his Email, Chris writes what a misgivings thoughts on the controversy surrounding Aaron mcgruder is removal from the production of the final season of the boondocks and the comparison to Dave Chapelle leaving his show feeling the work was propagating stereotypes instead of critiquing them through the show satire, Regina. He not like that was just an all of that was just a very unfortunate situation. And because of that situation, I don't know that it's ever a possibility for boondocks to come back for anyone that's like just sent that question. I'm answering that one now. It happens. So often in. Filmmaking and. The TV making that the powers that be and the creators have different opinions and. I know that it was very, very difficult for Aaron. I know that it was very difficult for others that were involved who also had to exit the the situation. And I know that it was difficult for Sony to for it to in that way. I mean that that was a show that potentially could have. Never ended because while could you just imagine boondocks now will that's one of another. One of our listeners alluded to Chris tweeted. I've always wanted to know what Regina king and the freemen boys hewing Riley Freeman thought about Trump after the election. We got Hueys view on Barack Obama in season three. What about today? So it sounds like Regina. What you're saying is that the creative and.

"'cause they don't just exist in Hollywood didn't? Yes. Well, Leyla I think you hit me with that question of at the at the time. I was actually kinda speaking on it. So yes, I, I feel for myself that remaining loyal to those at our loyal to me has just allow me to navigate these industry waters in a way that win. Times for probably when when it felt like the water was a little choppier I always had that great. Team that that's helping to sell the ship. You know, I. I have been with the same agent and manager for twenty years while twenty plus. Yeah. Yeah. Little over twenty years because my son is twenty two. So I, I, I really feel like keeping that open and honest dialogue with each other has definitely. Been the reason why I've been able to sustain and then my family, you know, I I've got, I'm very close to my mother and my sister and and and and and my. Grandmother, and she's not with this anymore, but my cousins and just people that you know if something's not right, they will let you know even if it's not right in your actions, you know family. That's never been afraid of sharing exactly what they feel about you or the situation. And I think that's been a big part of it as well. We've talked a lot about the metoo movement in Hollywood and how the industry is slowly beginning to acknowledge the diff- disparate treatment that men and women receive in the business. Do you feel like Hollywood is making it easier as making significant steps in dealing with with the issues that that female talents and executives have brought up? Is it easier these days to be a woman in Hollywood? I don't know that it's. Easier. I think that now this, we're, we're at a space where an in place in time that the conversation is is out there and it's in the light. It's not talked about just amongst other women behind closed doors or when they're just feeling safe. I feel like we're in a space now that the safety goes, it's in front of the crammer and that's important. So I think we will see a difference, enhanced vibes rights from two to seven, two American crime. I have enjoyed Regina king and everything. She has done my favorite role of hers though, will always be her detective on Southland. Beverly hill writes, you nailed the role of field as parole officer on shameless. I worked in parole and probation for many years. Your portrayal was completely authentic. Monica writes my Shiro. She is a phenomenal actor. I love everything. She does. Thank you for not staying in the box that others create for you and October's. Finest tweeted just praise every time I hear her voice. All I think about is the boondocks. I have to admit when you said, thank you. Glad to be here. I was like, she sounds a little more Huey than Riley. Reilly's a very distinct voice. Here's a quick clip of Huey and Riley going back and forth about the nature of the opposite sex in an episode of the moon docks. I don't see what the big deal is with Hull's anyway..

"So the it was a choice to. Not only find something to do that shot in LA, but that did not take up all my time because my agents were very clear with me that will, you know. Shows that have that are in ensemble, you'll be able to work to two or three days in a week, and then have the other days off at some weeks. You might end up being a five day week, but she won't have to be there all day and defeat. The purpose of the reason why you're going to TV anyway. Right? So that that was something that was explained to me, you know, early on and that's how twenty four. I came to be on twenty four. My manager reached out to Joel and let the him them know that I wanted to do TV, and they were like, oh, wow, and so they created that character for me. Was that a difficult decision to to go for the ensemble thing as a way to devote more more attention to your family? What was that thought process like, or was it just kind of an easy like, okay, this is done. I'm doing this. Well, it was. It was. It was difficult to make the decision. Season of not traveling out of the city anymore because you know, you're getting offers for things at really are of interest to you. But. I just was very clear that I wanted to be in home. So once that decision was made and I had not done TV in so long. And when I'm being explained what the landscape of TV is and look like, looks like. I mean, to be honest, I wasn't even really watching TV time, so I just trusting. The team that I had been with for so long in that it supported my choices as an actor for so long that had been pudding. It. Reaching out to producers and studios when scripts would come that were written for a white woman, and you know, putting my name in the hat for that role sold. They had done such a wonderful job in my opinion, with. Honoring me as an actor and not just a black actor run. I just I trusted them with regards to that. Leyla asks, can she talk about the business decision she's made to stay working and relevant for so long as a black woman actress. The business decision. I wonder maybe if by way of if ju by example, you talked about the team that's around you and the way that they view right on roles. I, I'm guessing, yeah, there were probably people you had to surround yourself with to distance yourself from certain circles you had to either run in or create for yourself to create the pipelines that would get you where you needed to go..

"I remember watching that show in the eighties and feeling like people were paying a little bit too much attention. To Jackie Harry's role, Sandra Clark to kind of, you know, the the, the one who kept talking about me like I feel like she kinda overshadowed the show and two, two seven was about more than that. You feel like people kind of got what you were trying to say. Then he, you know, I don't know. I think I was too young to even be thinking about it that deep, you know, I think I was. I was thirteen I think when we did the pilot so fourteen once it actually went to series. So I was just at that point just trying to represent teenagers in what I know what I felt like I was seeing, you know, I didn't. I didn't really see me on TV that often, you know there were a few shows but not many. So just like that the girl that I that I know the girl that I am the the, the, the, though young girl that actually has. Mother and father in the home? I, I do remember like thinking that when I was a teen doing the show that this is this is not something you see often seeing this family that is a middle class family that is not poor, not rich, but there are just some Americans, you know. Love in each other in trying to follow their dreams. And I did feel that I felt like that was very great to be a part of it seems like a number of the shows that people know you the most for at least that folks have been commenting to us the most for have been more on samba programs than what you might consider like a star vehicle kind of show even seven seconds which this latest EMMY nomination is a very ensemble focused show. You know, the episode spend at least as much time with characters like Kay, Jay, the assistant district attorney or Pete the police officer as they do with your character. Latrice wonder how being in those on psalm will shows has kind of worked for work for you. Well, I will say that that has choice. I very early on when my son was about nine years old. You know, I made the decision to. To not take projects that were outside of LA because I didn't want to miss out on any of those. Those life moments that happen when you when your child is is growing and at that time it kind of meant that if I was going to do that, that meant that my movie career was going to have to go on the back burner. So I had not done TV since two to seven, almost other than like, like, I think I did like a little quick thing on on the show called the northern exposure.

"That's not the narrative I was creating for myself, unquote. What kind of narrative did you feel you were? Do you feel is being created for you and what kind of narrative did you wanna create? Well, I've felt like a what was being creative for me was a girl in the hood. And it's interesting because after that, I've felt like mother and wife was what was falling into and being. Ask to play consistently. And I think, you know, I, I look at it two ways. Part of it. I look at it as a compliment that perhaps I've done my performance was believable enough for strong enough that people believe you to be that person in perfect to play that mother or or play this girl in the hood. I just again back to what we were, I speaking about the narrative. I want it for myself was just a passionate artist that honors the art that I was chosen to. Share so that that's that's the narrative. And I think that's the narrative that I'm I'm creating now I know that you did not want to be stereotyped as a girl in the hood, but my first recollection of your work was as Brenda onto who was a girl who kind of lived in the hood. So it's a different, but it today, but it's a different kind of character. I understand what you mean in that kind of like boys in the hood way as opposed to lie, oh, here's a girl and she lives in a neighborhood. So I and I think a number of people recognize you from that sitcom on NBC here is a clip from nineteen five of Regina king as Brenda in two, two, seven. Wait on kit. Sure. On. We both feel fine. Right. Admit. I understand. Can you can come out now. Gbi king has Brenda onto two seven talk about how that how that role came about and what you were expecting from it, if anything? Oh, gosh. First of all, just hear my voice. Are you? Okay. Was that a little too real. Well, I mean, you know, I heard a little of you Ian Riley in there. You know, I was trying to, we'll get to Houston rally in a minute. We have plenty of people who have written in like all I can hear see lien Riley who you from boondock, but we'll get to them in a second. Yeah, it's it's fun. Yeah, we'll get to that in the second. That came to be. Tucci seven was actually a stage play before it was a television show written by Christine, Houston, and. I actually played a character named sweetie in the stage play who lived around the corner from the building of two to seven. And when Marlin Christine sold it to NBC to become a show, everyone that was in the stage play, had the opportunity to audition for a role that you know was close to the the if if you fit the character description. So there was the role of Brenda Mary's daughter. So I ought dish in for that, and I think it was something insane like eight, nine auditions later I was shooting the pilot of two to seven. Did you get the sense that the country kinda got what two two seven was really about..

Thanks for having me. Thank you for making time for us. Is there a common thread between all the different parts that you take, you know, when you select a role, are there certain kinds that you have. Always gravitated towards or always passed on? No, I wouldn't say that there's certain kinds that I've always gravitated to, but I would say that I always gravitate to things that are interesting to me and and I think that that is that would be the common thread that even if the final product wasn't exactly what. I expected or was something that I was in -ticipant ING. The initially it was something that I thought was interesting story. You've been in the business for for some time. Now, are there any particular changes that you've seen in the last few years that kind of stand out the most to you? Yes. I mean, I think we are starting to see more roles where you have female characters that are more layered that aren't just someone's wife or just someone's mother, but just more complicated as human beings actually are. So I feel like I'm, we're starting to see more of that. And I also feel like we're starting to see. More roles that that are played by women of color, and the character doesn't have anything to do with their color, and it's it's slow, but I am seeing you said in an interview with vulture back in twenty fifteen and after boys in the hood, you saw quote that I was being stereotyped a lot of us were, I didn't want to be part of that..
