Just Say Cuomo! Another male politician is on the hot seat battling charges of sexual harassment, the recently adored New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. I there a there there? We tackle that question and meet with one of America’s great women photographers, Lynn Davis, the focus of a new, extraordinary film that takes a look at climate change but is something truly unique. It’s a celebration of Women’s History Month on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice the political news of the week.
How quickly the tide can change in politics. Only a few months ago, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was the darling of America, his compassion-filled daily updates on his state’s battle with coronavirus, a salve to the bombastic, unfeeling then President Trump much watch TV. Now after three young women have accused the governor of sexual harassment, the love is gone. And we as a society are back to that question of what’s credible? What’s fair? Must we believe a woman just because she says so? Have we swung too far in believing men at the expense of men’s rights? There’s much to discuss and Halli and Matt do, and a whole lot more from the HR-1 Bill, to the antics of Republican governors and their cheeky handling of coronavirus, to President Biden’s stimulus package and oh, so much more. Tune in, won’t you!
Sometimes we cross paths with something so astonishing, so unexpected, it just takes our breath away, And that is what will happen to you when you watch the new documentary MELTDOWN a film that features the stunning work of renowned photographer Lynn Davis and the profound insight of climate scientist Tony Leiserowitz as they confront the effects of climate change in a remote area of the world, Illulisat, Greenland, “ground Zero” for the climate crisis, too many refuse to acknowledge as a real threat to civilization. Produced as a small, intimate conversation, the film’s stage the large, stunning canvas of glaciers and ice sheets, MELTDOWN is profoundly enlightening, a remarkable convergence of art, science, and humanity, where beauty and tragedy share the stage, a starkly thoughtful lesson for those who don’t know that we are the earth and the earth is us, we are the one. Davis, the award-winning “Ice” photographer, friend of the greats like Imogen Cunningham, Robert Mapplethorpe, is one of the most fascinating artists of our time, as you’ll learn from our interview.
