Sam and Emma host Sheryll Cashin, professor at the Georgetown University Law Center, to discuss her recent book White Space, Black Hood: Opportunity Hoarding and Segregation in the Age of Inequality, on how the residential caste system built up around race and geography has ingrained itself into US cities, becoming central to how we imagine our neighborhoods and cities operating. They begin by focusing on the geographical element, as Professor Cashin looks to Baltimore to explore how the migration of escaped and freed slaves to the North saw cities resort to a contain and segregate tactic, tightly grouping Black folks into neighborhoods separated by infrastructure and investment, both in what is built, via the construction of highway boundaries, and in what isn't, with a complete desertion of public infrastructure. Looking into the 21st Century, Cashin explores how even under Black mayors and majority-Black city councils cities like Baltimore saw the residential caste system expanded and reinforced, discussing the role of Maryland Governor Larry Hogan in putting a stop to the aptly named “red line” to connect poorer neighborhoods to downtown and the suburbs, and re-investing the money entirely into rich white areas. After discussing this element of boundary maintenance, Professor Cashin, Sam, and Emma look to how this segregation also promotes opportunity hoarding, by not only keeping wealth and infrastructure down in Black neighborhoods, regardless of economic makeup, but also by forcing them to subsidize opportunity in wealthier neighborhoods. Lastly, they touch on the role of stereotype-driven policing and surveillance and how this works to reinforce both of the previous two elements, before they wrap up by discussing Sheryll Cashin's ideas on abolition and repair, working to reverse the destructive policies that have defined our metropolitan development over the last century and a half. Sam and Emma also touch on Ron DeSantis's tactical “if I can't see it, it doesn't exist” strategy with invisible viruses. And in the Fun Half: Sam finally gets some video proof that not all Pats fans absolutely suck, Emma compliments Sam's “soy-boy professor” look, and the crew discusses the HIPAA violation that is a Tinder date asking DeSantis his STD status. John from SA, Kowalski from NE, and Ronald Raygun hit us with back to back to back regulars as they tackle Wisconsin gerrymandering, defeatism, and ideal FBI-Plant Dave Ramsey, respectively. Bro Flamingo also discusses how the Activision culture of abuse has been swept under the rug, and an anonymous caller discusses his experience with the disgusting gas pollution coming from the abandoned Fresh Kills landfill in Staten Island, plus, your calls and IMs!

Content Warning: This episode contains graphic content. Before 2022 hits, here's a holiday, end-of-year rewind to a fan favorite. Episode 2 with Jospeh Cammarata from just after the 20th anniversary of 9/11. From September 17, 2021: Welcome back to the hottest podcast in America, literally. The second episode of the Firefighters Podcast with Rob Serra, FDNY (Ret.) returns to the day of September 11, 2001 as former FDNY and NYPD and current attorney Joseph Cammarata joins Rob to share his memories of the brother he lost on that horrible day. Their family was dedicated to service and it shows and these are the kind of people we're going to celebrate here. The real heroes. The helpers. We're also going to take a look back at the epic annual Hockey Heroes charity match between FDNY and the NYPD hockey teams. It aired to a national audience—and was an excellent game. The good guys won, but no one really lost. Host Rob Serra (@SerraRob) is America's leading advocate for firefighters and first-responders. A renowned activist, technical expert and father of three, Rob was born and raised in Staten Island, NY. He began his firefighting career with the FDNY and his first day in the field was September 11th, 2001. While he was not scheduled to work that day, he, along with thousands of others, reported to the World Trade Center to help with the aftermath of the attacks. The 20th anniversary of 9/11 was a time for reflection, a time for remembering. Never forget isn't just a hashtag. And we won't forget.

The B&H Photography Podcast team sends a huge end-of-the-year thank you to our listeners around the world and to the many guests who joined us for our weekly conversations. There's little need to overstate the difficulties of the past year, but we're all still here, still taking pictures, and we're still making this podcast week in, week out. It truly has been a gratifying and unflappable pleasure to produce this show and hopefully it continues to provide some insight, some inspiration, and a few good stories. Despite the adjustments of remote recording, or perhaps because of them, we expanded our circle of photography to include conversations on photomicrography, on the fine art nude, on skate photography, and photo “how-to” books. We spoke with artists and economists about NFTs, discussed protest photography and issues of community and migration. We had episodes about food and wedding photography, bird photography, the freelance business, and, as always, we did our gear episodes, including the seventh annual Cameras of the Year episode. I encourage you to take a look back at the wide range of subjects we discussed this year and let us know your favorite episodes, as well topics you'd like us to take on in the new year. Finally, and although this episode is not from 2021, we end this year with an encore presentation of our conversation with rock-n-roll photographer Mick Rock. Sadly, we lost Mick in November, but we're pleased to present this chat, which was recorded at his home, in Staten Island, and is certainly one of our all-time favorite episodes. Thank you, Mick, and thank you again to our listeners. Happy New Year. Photograph Courtesy of the Collection of Bill Shapiro
On this episode of the OnSI podcast… A special look back at the year that was, leading-off with renewed calls to remain vigilant, and calm, despite a late surge in COVID-19 cases. Also this month, the borough weathered the ongoing pandemic in 2021 with small, albeit important, victories all along the way. And, while some welcomed signs of normalcy returned this year, it was full of challenges locals had to overcome. Plus, even during the toughest of times, so many Staten Islanders remained committed to their hometown. As we look ahead, how the Island's strong community spirit may once again play a pivotal role as we learn to live with COVID in 2022 and beyond.
This week on Indy News we speak with: —Sean Petty, a pediatric emergency room nurse at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. He is also an activist in the New York State Nurses Association, the union that represents 42,000 nurses in New York. In a March 18, 2020 interview with the Indypendent at the onset of the Covid pandemic in New York, Sean warned “I'm running out of words to describe how dangerous and scary all of this is.” With the Omicron variant sweeping across New York City and the country, he is alarmed once again. — Amazon Labor Union President Chris Smalls and VP Derrick Palmer to update us on the struggle to unionize Amazon workers. On Dec. 22, for the second time in three months, Staten Island Amazon workers hand-delivered signed cards to a National Labor Relations Board office in Brooklyn, petitioning that the board authorize a union vote. The refiling comes after six weeks of furious organizing by the Amazon Labor Union after withdrawing their first petition. This time, the union is targeting only the largest facility on Staten Island, JFK8. —Julia Thomas, author of “Rikers Island Transferees Now Held in Maximum Security Prison Where Drinking Water Tastes Like Sewage” from the recent Dec. issue of The Indypendent. Bedford hills, a maximum-security prison in Westchester is experiencing an influx of women and transgender and non-binary people — all held pre-trial — who are being transferred from Rikers Island. The controversial and inhumane transfers, which began in October, come after renewed calls to close Rikers and address the increasingly inhumane conditions on the penal colony.

Understanding Conrail with Brian Gorton Brian Gorton and Joe Lynch discuss understanding Conrail. Brian is the President & Chief Operating Officer of Conrail Shared Assets, which serves as a contract local carrier and switching company for its owners, CSX Transportation and the Norfolk Southern Railway. About Brian Gorton Brian E. Gorton joined Conrail in 1987 as a conductor. He advanced to the position of Assistant Terminal Superintendent before departing Conrail prior to the CSXT and Norfolk Southern acquisition of Conrail in 1998. After his departure from Conrail, he worked at the Union Pacific Railroad where he held various positions in the Transportation Department including General Manager of UP's Houston and Gulf Coast Service Units. On April 19, 2021, Brian rejoined Conrail and was appointed President & Chief Operating Officer of Conrail Shared Assets headquartered in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, bringing with him over 30 years of railroad experience and expertise. About Conrail Conrail is an American railroad company. It operates three networks—the North Jersey, South Jersey/Philadelphia, and Detroit Shared Assets Areas, where it serves as a contract local carrier and switching company for its owners, CSX Transportation and the Norfolk Southern Railway. Customers located along Conrail's lines have access to the national rail network through either railway. As a local rail service provider, it's Conrail's job to make sure that customers' freight shipments are safely and efficiently moved between their rail sidings and the long-distance freight trains operated by CSX and Norfolk Southern. CSX and Norfolk Southern handle all commercial matters for customers. However, Conrail plays a critical role in serving shippers and receivers as a service provider for our owners. Key Takeaways: Understanding Conrail Brian Gorton is the President & Chief Operating Officer of Conrail Shared Assets, which serves as a contract local carrier and switching company for its owners, CSX Transportation and the Norfolk Southern Railway. In the podcast interview, Brian explains Conrail's capabilities, service area, history, operations, and the advantages that rail brings to high-volume shippers. In the spring of 1997, Norfolk Southern Corporation (NS) and CSX Corporation (CSX) agreed to acquire Conrail through a joint stock purchase. CSX and NS split most of the Company's assets between them. The approved merger plan restructured Conrail into a Switching and Terminal Railroad operating about 1,200 miles of track in three regional areas. On June 1, 1999, Conrail began operating as a Switching and Terminal Railroad for its owners, NS and CSX, in the three geographical areas of Northern New Jersey, Southern New Jersey/Philadelphia, and Detroit, Michigan. In 2007, it expanded its operations from Northern New Jersey to Staten Island, New York. Advantages of rail transport: Cost effective. Shippers often save money by switching from truck to rail. Sustainability. Rail transport is more environmentally friendly and produces less greenhouse gas emissions than over the road trucking. Great option for high-volume shippers. A double-stacked train can move more freight than hundreds of trucks. Reliability. Trains run on a track and on a schedule, so traffic and weather are seldom an issue. Access to capacity. Many shippers use rail as an alternative to the driver and truck constrained over the road market. Intermodal shipping which utilizes rail transport is often the most efficient transportation mode for shippers, particularly high-volume shippers.

Essence and USA Today bestselling author, Tracy Brown discusses growing up on Staten Island's North Shore, graduating high school on time despite becoming a teenage mother, getting multiple offers on her first book without an agent, and having her latest release selected as a Target Diverse Book Club Pick.
The Purge franchise is one of the most iconic dystopian action horror series of all time and the man behind it, James DeMonaco is not stopping anytime soon.James is our guest today and even though we talk a great deal about the various Purge films he's either written or directed, which are all fan favorites, we start off with his most recently released film, This Is The Night, that was digitally released on September 21, 2021, after a prior theater release on Sep 17, 2021.This Is The Night, drama stars Frank Grillo, Lucius Hoyos, Jonah Hauer-King, Bobby Cannavale, and Naomi Watts. It is set in the summer of 1982 Staten Island with the release of Rocky III as its backdrop.The story tells of an average teen who embarks on a quest in his Rocky Balboa-obsessed town that swirls in his family members. Watts and Grillo will play with his parents. His family must confront its greatest challenges and the family realizes that the only way to live is like there's no tomorrow.I have tons of questions for James in this interview, which I am sure you, my tribe will appreciate. I have been a fan of some of his work but clueless he had written other top-ranked films on my list, it came as an exciting shock to discover more that James has written, directed, or produced.Besides screenwriting, directing, and producing projects like the Purge movies, he's also written for TV and gets credit for writing The Negotiator, Staten Island, Jack, and Assault on Precinct 13. As a child of 5 years old, he would beg his more for a pass to watch the 4:30 ABC network movies and would visit the cinema often. At seven years old, he went to see, Apocalypse at the cinema and that changed everything for him. Leaving that theater with the desire to be part of that experience of whatever happened on the screen. Through screenwriting, he landed his first production gig with director Francis Coppola, for the 1996 movie, Jack, starring Robin Williams. The inspiration for The Purge was birthed during James's time living in Paris and Canada. It came mainly, from his relationship against guns even though he had grown up around cops.The experience in Europe and Canada, in general, were the complete opposites he had observed. This was around the time mass shootings in America were on the rise in the early 2000s. Combined with an aftermath dark thought from a road rage incident curious about what it would be like if we all had a day pass, turned into a masterpiece original screenplay. But dressed in a science fiction dystopian world. The Purge: Anarchy - A couple is driving home when their car breaks down just as the Purge commences. Meanwhile, a police sergeant goes out into the streets to get revenge on the man who killed his son, and a mother and daughter run from their home after assailants destroy it. The five people meet up as they attempt to survive the night in Los Angeles. It was challenging to find someone willing to finance a ‘nihilistic' and ‘un-American movie life The Purge. James and his partners got about fifty rejections because of how dark the script seemed. Until finally with help from Jason Blum who said it was a great fit for his low-budget horror model on his deal with Universal Studios, to be produced by Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes.The studio took a shot at it and the first Purge movie in 2013 albeit on a $3 million budget, grossed $89.3 million. The film starred Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane, and Max Burkholder as members of a wealthy family who find themselves endangered by a gang of murderers during the annual Purge, a night during which all crime, including murder, is temporarily legal.The franchise includes The Purge: Anarchy( 2014), The Purge: Election Year (2016), a prequel, The First Purge (2018), The Purge TV series (2018 to 2019), and The Forever Purge (2021).There is a sixth Purge movie in the works. And the franchise has grossed overall over $450 million against a combined production budget of $53 million.We go deep in the weeds on these projects and James's writing process.Enjoy my conversation with James DeMonaco.

Before getting into the episode recaps, Emma and Julie spend the first 15 or so minutes discussing Kim and Pete's recent weekend in New York City. They touch on the photos of him leaving her hotel, her leaving his Staten Island apartment, him driving her Rolls-Royce, and the two having breakfast at the Beverly Hills Hotel. There is so much going on. They then recap season five, episodes three and four. The more interesting plot lines of the 2 episodes center around Kris and Caitlyn's continual fighting and Kim's rendezvous with her bodyguard. It's a very interesting point of time in their family for a bunch of different reasons, and Emma and Julie break them all down. KASHWERE (The robes/blankets we're obsessed with.

Emma and Julie begin by breaking down Kim and Pete's Staten Island outing of dinner and a movie (with Scott, nonetheless.) They also get into Kim's semi-acknowledgement of Pete on the ‘Honestly with Bari Weiss' podcast. They then discuss Ben Affleck's 2.5 hour interview with Howard Stern - how misrepresented his comments were in the clickbait headlines, and his follow-up on Jimmy Kimmel to clarify his statements. *sexual assault/abuse trigger warning* Next, they discuss the allegations against Chris Noth and the bravery of the women who came forward. They also get into John Mulaney/Olivia Munn allegedly welcoming their child together and the timelines of their relationship, Beyoncé joining TikTok, and Julia Haart (of ‘My Unorthodox Life') divorce rumors/Instagram stories. The Kardashian recap includes Mason's text to Kim about North going live on TikTok, Kim's legal docs re: Kanye, Tristan and his (maybe) third child, and photos circulating from Kylie's baby shower.

Today, Tanvi Misra, an award-winning independent journalist focused on migration, urban policy, and criminal justice, returns to talk about the process and concentrate on her collaborative article “We Have to Survive,” which represents the advocacy found in immigrant communities. In this article, Tanvi interviewed four women, from community leaders to activists, to paint a portrait of how migrant communities in New York City push through unjust circumstances. To tell us what their progress has been like since the article was published, we have Goma Yonjan and Arlette Cepeda. Goma is a nail salon worker who migrated to New York more than fifteen years ago. Arlette is a visual artist and photographer born in the United States and grew up in the Dominican Republic. In her exhibit, “Essential Immigrant Stories,” she captured the sense of loss during the pandemic within her tight-knit Staten Island community. (Tanvi's article came from a collaboration with three news publications: The Fuller Project, the City, and Documented) Producer & Host: Saadia Khan Associate Producer & Content Editor: Kylee Roberts Content writer: Ashley Lanuza Editor: Bronte Cook Introduction Song: Goma Yonjan

Photo by Stone Malick. “I just started to leap — like a prancing dancer across one of the intersections. And the crowd just lit up and went crazy… And I realized, this is fun!” There were more than 30,000 runners at this year's New York City Marathon. But it feels safe to say that no one had more fun on that course than professional runner and Olympian Alexi Pappas. On this episode, Alexi recounts her joyful journey from Staten Island to Central Park. She talks about her plans and goals for the day, and shares the story of how she made a friend — Vito — at mile three, with whom she went on to run the entire rest of the race. She talks about leaning into fun, about channeling her true inner self on the run, and about the life-changing advice she got from Jenny Simpson after the race. Plus, how she's coped with the post-marathon comedown, and why she wants people to stop asking professional runners what's next.
