San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin

Over here at Bitch Talk, we were very happy to welcome San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin onto the podcast. If you're not familiar with him, here's the basics. In 2019, Chesa Boudin ran for the open seat of District Attorney of SF and won by a narrow margin. Chesa ran on a progressive platform talking about the elimination of cash bail, ending mass incarceration, and eliminating racial bias in the criminal justice system. While he was running for office as well as after he won, his very vocal (and heavily funded) opponents have turned to not one, but two recall attempts (the first failed to get enough signatures) to remove him from office for purely political reasons. In our opinion, he's been scapegoated on topics such as car break-ins, theft, and the increase in San Francisco's unhoused population. Hello! Remember that little ol' global pandemic that we all are living through? Anyway, if this recall succeeds, San Francisco Mayor London Breed would appoint a replacement DA. Does that seem like a democratic process?In this interview, we get to know who Chesa is and where he's from, what the District Attorney's job is and what it isn't, why SF crime stats don't lie (violent crimes are down, btw), his office's achievements, and what he looks forward to. We are thankful for the time Chesa had for us and we hope to have him back again closer to the recall election in June.Read up folks, there's a lot of dark money out there wanting to take away our voting power, even in San Francisco. Need more info about the recall?

Kate Slater is a white, anti-racist scholar and educator in a time where America's racial reckoning and call for justice has been heard across the nation and the world. She leads facilitation's and training's for both students as well as private organizations, and her passion for this work is palpable. We've rarely spoken to someone so fired up, and we jump right into how she got into this field of work, and when she first realized the depths of systemic racism (and her role within it). She discusses the difference between being non-racist and anti-racist, white privilege, individualism versus collectivism, the gaps in the American education system that she's trying to fill, and the fear mongering of critical race theory. But this summary is just the tip of the iceberg, you'll have to listen to find out more about Kate's work, and how she manages to do this while eight and a half months pregnant and with a toddler at home!You can follow Kate Slater on IG & at her website--Thanks for listening and for your support!

A Place to Breathe is a documentary that "explores the universality of trauma and resilience through the eyes of immigrant and refugee healthcare practitioners and patients". It provides an important glimpse into the heinous crimes that have happened (and continue to happen) around the world that have led people to escape their homes and seek refuge, and the people that run the organizations and clinics created to help them heal. We sat down with director/producer Michelle Grace Steinberg and producer Robyn Bykofsky about their process in choosing which stories to highlight, how medical care is so much more than just physical, the healing power of cultural festivals and events, the unnecessary loopholes that immigrants/refugees need to go through, and the ultimate goal for their production company, Underexposed Films.

This time, she's back with a portrayal of arguably one of the most influential environmental leaders in our history, Jacques Cousteau. Her film, Becoming Cousteau, documents how he first fell in love with the sea (spoiler alert: it was all because of an accident), how he turned from explorer to activist, his complicated family life, and the mistakes he made along the way to greatness. She gets into the many years it took to gain access (and go through) his archival footage, the importance of sharing his story for future generations, and her insight on being a woman in a male dominated field (and a very successful one, at that).

We are grateful to welcome back to the show, director Justin Chon to talk about his latest film Blue Bayou. The last time we talked with Justin, was back at the Sundance Film Festival in 2019 when he screened the sister/brother drama Ms. Purple. Blue Bayou takes on the conversations around immigration, adoption, police brutality, racism, facing death and interracial marriage - all set in the beautiful landscape of one of our favorite places, New Orleans. Justin and Erin talk about the heavy topics of this film as well as why he landed on using New Orleans as the backdrop to the story, adoption as a capitalistic transaction, why he prefers the Linda Ronstadt version of Blue Bayou , and more. Blue Bayou  is out now in a theater near you.

As timely as it is right now, Congresswoman Barbara Lee was the lone NO vote to authorize the President the use of military force in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Barbara Lee believed that the authorization would become a blank check for an endless war - HAVE YOU READ THE NEWS THIS WEEK?! Congresswoman Lee's moral character and values have led her impeccable career in U.S. politics and we're so inspired by her story.

Aretha's young life was fraught with death, rape, as well as controlling, toxic men. Director Liesel Tommy wanted to tell that part of Aretha's herstory which is exactly what she does with a thoughtful eye on balancing all of the beauty and horrors of Aretha's life. This was Liesl Tommy's first feature film and she had to fight for a lot of the scenes you will see when you watch Respect. We're so glad that she did and we're also happy about the attention she paid to Aretha's time spent in Muscle Shoals at the famous FAME studios where she recorded her first big hit I Never Loved A Man The Way That I Love You.  Erin and Liesl talk about the choice of using the  b.roll from Martin Luther King's funeral (Aretha was friends and worked with the Reverend), her father's famous parties which included folks like Smokey Robinson who is brilliantly played by actor Lodric D. Collins, and working with the exceptional Kris Bowers who scores the film.

We got to catch up with him about the season 1 spin off series of the film with the same name, the importance of an equitable writers room, shooting in Oakland, filming  during a pandemic, power structures on set, and working in choreography into a television dramedy.  Plus we talk about the cast which is phenomenal...HELLO, Helen Hunt is a goddamn cast member - DUH.It's been cool to see how one of our favorite films about Oakland and the Bay get to see a longer shelf life and turn itself into an episodic series to reach more folks. We're also stoked to continue our podcast relationship with Rafa.

We are very excited to welcome the very talented Sonia Kennebeck back to the show to talk about her film Enemies of the State.  It's the true story of Matt DeHart who believes that he is being targeted by the U.S. government for having confidential documents alleging misconduct by the CIA. The film takes you on the roller coaster ride that Matt and his parents rode as well as the government officials that were (and possibly still are) after him.  Sonia's constant deep dive into how the America government goes after its citizens is mind boggling and her curiosity and deep research into these stories is awe inspiring. If you didn't catch our first interview with Sonia earlier this year about her film The United States Vs. Reality Winner you can find it here. You can watch Enemies of the State in select theaters and on demand on Amazon Prime, Google Plus, and Vudu.Follow Sonia on IG and Twitter  Be well, stay safe, Black Lives Matter, AAPI Lives Matter, and thank you for getting vaxxed.--Buy us a cup of coffee!Subscribe to our channel on YouTube for behind the scenes footage!Rate and review us wherever you listen to podcasts!Visit our website! www.bitchtalkpodcast.comFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.Listen every other Thursday 9:30 - 10 am on BFF.FMPOWERED BY GO-TO Productions

Welcome to Flash Back Friday! With 500+ episodes, we're excited to revisit some of our favorites with our new listeners (and maybe new to our regular listeners).This week we're flashing back to January of this year when we interviewed director Melissa Haizlip from the film, Mr. Soul. This documentary features her uncle, Ellis Haizlip - a queer, Black, television producer and host of the first known Black variety show called Soul! out of New York City in the 60s.  We talk with Melissa in depth about the importance of the show, James Baldwin, Black culture, Lenny Kravitz, poetry, the magic of Robert Glasper, and more. The show Soul is an extremely important part of American culture and we hope that Melissa's film will spark a new interest in Ellis Haizlip and his Black culture movement. We hope you find this film as informative and revolutionary as we did!Mr. Soul is streaming right now on HBOMax!You can follow Mr. Soul the movie on IG,  FB,  & TwitterYou can follow director Melissa Haizlip on FB & Twitter--Be well, stay safe, Black Lives Matter, AAPI Lives Matter, and thank you for getting vaxxed.--Buy us a cup of coffee!Subscribe to our channel on YouTube for behind the scenes footage!Rate and review us wherever you listen to podcasts!Visit our website! www.bitchtalkpodcast.comFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.Listen every other Thursday 9:30 - 10 am on BFF.FMPOWERED BY GO-TO Productions

Debra Chasnoff was an Oscar-winning documentarian/activist whose films helped educate people on everything from LGBTQ rights, to nuclear weapons, and affordable housing. So it's no surprise that when she found out she had stage 4 breast cancer, she decided to turn the camera on herself to teach us one final lesson - what it means to truly live. On its surface, the documentary Prognosis- notes on living follows Debra Chasnoff along with her family and friends in the days following her diagnosis, but it really is a course on shifting identities, and what it means to live in the moment. We were honored to chat with Debra's wife and producer of the film, Nancy Otto, whose journey in the film is as emotional and  powerful as anything you'll ever see. She shares what it was like to document the most intimate and painful moments of her life, and her hopes that this film will spark a greater conversation around death and dying. We appreciate Nancy for sharing her experience with us, and are grateful to Debra Chasnoff for continuing to make this world a better place.Prognosis- notes on living is currently part of the San Francisco Jewish Film FestivalYou can follow Nancy Otto on FB--Be well, stay safe, Black Lives Matter, AAPI Lives Matter, and thank you for getting vaxxed.--Buy us a cup of coffee!Subscribe to our channel on YouTube for behind the scenes footage!Rate and review us wherever you listen to podcasts!Visit our website! www.bitchtalkpodcast.comFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.Listen every other Thursday 9:30 - 10 am on BFF.FMPOWERED BY GO-TO Productions
