It's always refreshing to talk to an artist who has multiple layers of creativity up their sleeves. When it comes to rappers— a large majority are expected to touch on certain topics and maintain a certain image to make themselves appealing to the masses. This is often particularly true when it comes to the “femcees” but luckily for us in Boston we have a handful of lady lyricists who are breaking the mold; and one of them who stands out amongst many is the Roxbury native, Cakeswagg! We've been following Cakeswagg's journey since the start of this platform and we have always enjoyed her witty and sharp bars that often came with compelling visuals that highly impressed us given her short time as an artist. She came on the scene in 2018 and quickly grabbed the attention of every and anyone with her pen game. Shes dropped 3 projects—including her latest “The Pencess” w/ DJ WhySham and even had a freestyle series that's had over 120 weekly installments. Needless to say, this conversation has been LONG OVERDUE! Join Charlie MaSheen, Shanelle Shanté, & KASH as they host Cakeswagg in a conversation about her career as an artist, her career as a GHOSTWRITER, more about her & SO MUCH MORE‼️ And of course we couldn't let her leave without giving us some heat for this week's #RedCupsAndRap Freestyle!

We have another NNS/DBG/NNS from September 21st & 22nd, 1996. Title: Cruising the Radio Waves Tom Howie was producing. We begin with a couple of jokes from a caller, Bruce the skip to Norm talking to Linda about sports talk shows, negativity and talking like an ass. Now on to caller, Elizabeth, whom Norm hasn’t spoken with in a long time. She was former WBZ producer Eddie LeClair’s fiancé. We learn that’s not the only thing that can be referred to as former. There’s a caller asking about Norm’s recent trip to Bermuda, his daughters, Sonja and Sarah, glaucoma and a renown eye doctor. We move to Norm talking about all the wacky National Day of stuff such as: Dear Diary Day, Ice Cream Cone Bday, Long Count Day, National Centenarians Day, National Good Neighbor Day and more. It’s time for the DBG! Members of the Panel: Jim in MI Elizabeth from Allston Michael in JP Michelle and Todd from Salem, MA Shayna in Traffic? Maybe not. Bdays: Tommy Lasorda Shari Belafonte Debbie Boone Joan Jett Scott Baio Bob Lemon There’s some weird noises and other discussions before we get to a date in History question: When did Fiddler on the Roof open on Broadway? A ton of fun is had during the game with impressions, great talk about Jack Benny and skit recreations. Jim in MI was using the GE SuperRadio III and picking WBZ up nicely. Elizabeth and Norm talk for a while longer after the game. She had spoken to Ed before she played and relates his thoughts to Norm. Norm mentions that he hosted “A Child’s Guide to Instruments of the Orchestra.” We Break for news. He announces what he’s going to do but does it quietly because other stations steal our ideas. He gives out the phone number even though he’s tired of seeing it scrawled on the bathroom walls. We come back with a caller, Don, complaining about a WBZ promo and a Beatles song. Joan Jett was a guest star on The Highlander tv show? Sheena Easton too? There was a concern that the classical audience is getting older and older but that fear is put aside with a call from Robin in Lynn. She and her 8-year-old love classical music and would be going to the Symphony! Norm expounds on the virtues of musical tastes including mine. Shirley in MI was so happy that Norm was back from his trip. Next is Ron who praises Elizabeth and her call. Then Beatrice in W. Roxbury – Happy to have Norm back from his trip too. Talks about Arthur Fiedler and tells a story of being at Symphony Hall where everyone was waiting for Fiedler to arrive. He was late because he helped fight the Vendome Fire. He was an honorary firefighter and took that very seriously. Our last caller was Jim who was also in Bermuda but on a different cruise. They talk about the high cost of living on the island. We end with a classic tag line from Norm. Episode 105, Cruising the Radio Waves, sets sail to your ear canals…now.

This week's episode is with Ruben Sança. Ruben and I go back a ways: When I was a senior at Stonehill College we recruited him pretty hard to come run at our school. He ultimately ended up going to our rival, UMass Lowell, where he went on to have a great collegiate career as a 4x All-American and three-time New England champion. It turned out to be the right choice for him as Ruben now works at his alma mater as the Director of Student Life & Well-Being. After college, Ruben made some big jumps as an athlete. In 2011 he represented his home country of Cape Verde in the marathon at the World Championships in South Korea and the following year he competed in the 5000m at the Olympic Games in London. In fact, it was during those Olympics that I first spent some meaningful time with Ruben and got know him a little bit. Ruben has also finished in the top-25 of the Boston Marathon twice and still competes regularly on the New England road racing scene. In August, he and his five-year-old son Greyson broke the Guinness World Record for running a mile with a stroller, clocking a 4:32.2 at the High Street Mile in Newburyport, Massachusetts.Even though he's five years younger than me, Ruben is someone I look up to for the example he sets through his actions. He works incredibly hard, makes time for the people and pursuits he cares most about, and he does it all with humility. In this conversation, we talked about his recent Guinness world record and how he shares running with his son. Ruben told me about growing up in Cape Verde, moving to the U.S. when he was 12 years old, and what it was like settling into the Dorchester and Roxbury neighborhoods of Boston. We discussed his experience running in high school and some of the challenges of being a distance runner in the inner city, why he chose to run at UMass Lowell and his relationship with coach Gary Gardner, and how he was thinking about his pursuit of competitive running after college. Ruben also explained to me how his relationship to running has evolved over the years and how he fits in training at a high level around family and a full-time job, establishing his nonprofit foundation that focuses on integrating sports and academics to make a sustainable impact in Cape Verde, and so much more.

2011 - Roxbury, Massachusetts. In December of 2011, 61-year-old Gail Miles was brutally murdered in her own home in Roxbury, Massachusetts. As Boston Police work to track down her killer, they realize that Gail is one of their own: a former officer for the nearby Watertown Police Dept, and that her time there was most remembered by the feathers she ruffled by standing up against harassment in the workplace. Gail was also supposed to meet a landlord the night of her murder, and was getting impatient that he had taken all day to show up… Her friends and family believe Gail knew her killer. She wouldn't open her door to just anyone… but over a decade later, police are still trying to answer the same question: who killed Gail Miles?

Chestnut Hill Does Not Exist...or does it??? Full Blog at lostmassachusetts.com We cover the lost history of a town that was never a town but was planned to be. It's not a ghost town, you can still go there: Chestnut Hill. People may imagine it is a distinct town but it is made of pieces of several other cities. How? Listen to the podcast. The Lee family acquired over 160 acres of what many people considered to be remote, rural, dusty, swampy land on the Newton-Brookline border. Part of that land would be transferred to Roxbury. The Lee's would develop the land, bringing families in, clearing it, building roads and houses and then renaming the area "Chestnut Hill". Their goal was to create a new community but Boston's ambitions made that just a dream as the suburbs tightened their borders in response. "Named by Francis Lee, who built the first country house in the area in the 1850's, Chestnut Hill is in three different towns"(brooklinehistoricalsociety.org) "That still doesn't explain the Brookline-shaped gap in Boston's present-day silhouette, though. Between 1868 and 1870, Boston tripled its size by annexing first Roxbury and then Dorchester, promising new infrastructure and development. In 1873, it grew larger still, absorbing Brighton, Charlestown, and West Roxbury. Brookline, however, would later vote against joining Boston, putting a stop to the city's inland expansion until it annexed Hyde Park in 1912." (realestate.boston.com) "The western part of the City of Roxbury split off to form the Town of West Roxbury in 1851.

I'm Josh Cooperman and this is Convo By Design with the second part of a conversation that aired on June 20th, 2022. It aired a day in advance of a Beverly Hills City Council meeting that was determining a Certificate of Ineligibility and ultimately, the future of this property located on one of the most famous residential streets in the world. And depending on which side of the issue you reside, it did or did not end well.  I'm not going to rehash the issue because that has already been done. If interested, you can find the episode in the podcast feed or go to the show notes and click on the link to listen. This episode is pretty much the last chapter until I ultimately report back with what will be built after this Carleton Burgess designed house is torn down. I'm also not going to relitigate this issue, it has already been done. Everything that needed to be said, was said in a marathon council meeting. I am going to play some excerpts of note but first, I want you to know that I see value on both sides of this issue. I believe in property owners rights. If you spend the money to buy something, and you follow the rules and you do it with transparency, you should have the right to do what you wish. At the same time, I believe in preservation because it is culturally important. If you look at Beverly Hills alone,  so many properties of note by legendary architects have been torn down and it's not because there was not a buyer for the properties. To the contrary. Many of these stories are not known until the process for saving them makes the news and by then, it's too late. Falcon Lair, PickFair, Garden of Allah, the Brown Derby. It's not just Beverly Hills. But here's the thing. Beverly Hills failed miserably in this case identifying, labeling and securing the architectural treasures within their city. City Council, with the exception of Mr. Mirisch seemed more interested in the minutia, meeting Mr. Baker and seeming just interested enough as to avoid any political blowback. A side note not related to the historical issue. Beverly Hills will be allowing the demolition of a 10,000 square foot home as the majority if not all building materials make their way to a landfill. The environmental impact of this is significant and again, is it In the best interest of the community? Is this a part of your Sustainability Plan? 1001 North Roxbury Drive is NOT a tear down and was not a property that someone would just buy for the dirt to rebuild a dream home. This property has been lovingly maintained, has a significant history in Hollywood lore.  Jack Benny, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez, supposedly Esther Williams swan that pool back in the day. The property has been published in shelter publications. In the process of trying to assure that this property was NOT listed as a significant property, well respected shelter publications and websites were deemed nothing more that shills for paid stories to promote those who did the work. As we dig in a bit, you are going to hear segments from the City Council Meeting of June 21, 2022. You are going to hear segments from over 3 hours of testimony and debate. First, Mayor Bosse and City Planner Ryan Gohlich explain how this got here in the first place. As you listen, note that this only happened because the property was sold, and the new owners applied for a Certificate of Ineligibility to begin the process of (potentially) destroying this home.  Benjamin Hanelin of Latham & Watkins now explains, in detail and masterfully lays the groundwork, a roadmap really, for obtaining a Certificate of Ineligibility. Before I play this for you, I think it is important for you to know, I don't really care if this home is torn down or not because I don't live in Beverly Hills, don't drive by this home on my way to work or dropping the kids off at school,  don't walk my dog by this home, don't see it in any way and because of that, this doesn't affect my life and so it does not materially affect...

DISCLOSURE… opinions voiced by guests appearing on this episode are their own and not necessarily the views of Convo By Design or the host of this podcast.  I was reading an article recently about another Los Angeles mansion on the slow march to its demise. This one is in Beverly Hills, as many of them are and it's the same story. Someone with more money than almost everyone else comes in and buys a property for which he has other intentions than living in it, as is. I read this article on dirt.com, and this property sits on North Roxbury Drive and Lexington Road. The Hollywood Regency-style residence was designed by architect, Carleton L. Burgess. Let's stop here for a moment. What makes “significant”, or “special or, more to the point, worth saving? Serious question and one that is really hard to answer for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the rights of a property owner. They worked for the money, or inherited it, whatever, it's their money. Can they not buy and do with it what they wish. Well, yes, unless there are regulations that prohibit it. This Burgess residence lies within the city of Beverly Hills and unfortunately, Beverly Hills was extremely late to the preservation party and because of that, many architectural gems have been wiped clean, again… being honest here, is an LA tradition and every architect since the 1940's knew that going in. Now, in 2012, the City of Beverly Hills discussed ideas around architectural preservation at a city council meeting. In that meeting, they reviewed a list of significant Beverly Hills architects, calling it “A list of local master architects” and the list included 150 such designers. This list was part of a recent requirement to an ordinance that the city adopted to begin preserving properties it deemed “significant”.  It's important to note that at the time, the city was also compiling a list of original architects for more than 2,900 structures. Using their own mathematical formula, they determined that there would be under 500 structures that would be awarded with a historically significant designation.  Interestingly enough, the time for significant architecture in the city was crafted by those working in Beverly Hills prior to 1970. Fair enough. The city had a pretty solid plan. The list would be used as criteria for preservation designation and designation as a “local historical landmark.” An interesting note, the criteria verbiage states, “Represents a notable work a person included on the city's list of Master Architects or possesses high artistic or aesthetic value.” Now, that last part is tricky. “Aesthetic value” to whom? And then it get's even MORE fascinating with some very specific criteria that includes according to BHMC 10-3-3212:(1) A. The property meets two of the following criteria: B. The property retains integrity from its Period of Significance. C. The property has historic value. 1. Is identified with important events in the main currents of national, state, or local history, or directly exemplifies or manifests significant contributions to the broad social, political, cultural, economic, recreational, or architectural history of the nation, state, city or community; 2. Is directly associated with the lives of significant persons important to the national, state, city or local history; 3. Embodies the distinct characteristics of a style, type, period, or method of construction; 4. Represents a notable work of a person included on the City's List of Master Architects or possesses high artistic or aesthetic value; 5.

Preaching for Pentecost, M. Shawn Copeland offers a reflection on 'Spirit of God Different': "At Pentecost, Spirit God Different missions us to live out the command of Jesus to ‘love one another.' Spirit God Different opens us, teaches us to live in and live out active compassionate, loving solidarity with those whom our society chooses to oppress––those whom our society exploits and alienates, marginalizes and dominates, rejects and denies, attacks and assaults, represses and crushes, murders and destroys. By creating these blessed fleshly differences, Spirit God Different nudges us to reach out to one another, to communicate, to meet one another, to enjoy one another, to act in love for and with one another. Spirit God Different urges us to defend and protect one another from oppression and violence of body and soul, mind and heart; to respect and honor, welcome and embrace one another in all our fleshly difference––for our shining and beautiful fleshly differing bodies are dwelling places of Spirit God Different." Dr. M. Shawn Copeland is Professor emerita of Systematic Theology at Boston College and Theologian-in-Residence at Saint Katharine Drexel Parish, Roxbury, Massachusetts. She is an internationally recognized scholar and award-winning writer. Copeland is a former Convener of the Black Catholic Theological Symposium (BCTS).

Travis Kalanick — the co-founder and ex-CEO of Uber who stepped down from the rideshare company — is bringing his new “ghost kitchen” company to Boston. CloudKitchen, which buys old warehouse buildings to split into commercial kitchen spaces that restaurants can rent out to produce food for third-party delivery services like Uber Eats and GrubHub, is headed to Roxbury's Shirley Street. The Roxbury warehouse will have more than two dozen kitchen spaces available for rent by both local restaurants and national chains. And though the company assures restaurateurs that profits will soar, critics aren't so keen. “There's huge amount of turnover in these places. The companies don't help [small businesses] out financially, and leave them hanging when they don't get sufficient orders,” food writer Corby Kummer said. “They're very bad deals for restaurants.” Tech companies like CloudKitchen, Kummer notes, are “almost certainly going to want to own everything,” such as menus and access to recipes. “The fact is, the tech company owns everything and all the intellectual property,” Kummer said. “You leave with nothing if it's not working out for you.” Kummer is the executive director of the Food and Society policy program at the Aspen Institute, a senior editor at The Atlantic and a senior lecturer at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.

VERMONT, 1979: When the vehicle of Judith Leo-Coneys turned up at a junkyard in Roxbury, Vermont, it was the first big clue in the disappearance of the beloved school teacher and young mother. The case would spiral into an investigation spanning a decade and stretching across the United States, but before investigators would uncover any answers for Judy, they'd have to find a second missing person. The primary person of interest disappeared, too. This is Part 1 of Judith Leo-Coneys story. Part 2 is out on Monday, April 4.
