Ep. 74 – The Murder of William Arnold Newton Part IV: Meet Rachel Mason

Christopher & Eric

Christopher and Eric's ongoing discussion of the brutal, 30-year old unsolved homicide of gay adult film actor William "Billy" Newton (aka Billy London) hasn't just drawn the attention of the LAPD homicide detective in charge of the case (see Episode 63), it's also stirred the interest of acclaimed documentarian Rachel Mason. Her beloved film CIRCUS OF BOOKS explored her childhood as the daughter of a seemingly conventional couple who also happened to own and manage one of the most successful adult book stores in West Hollywood and distribute some of the most successful gay adult films of all time. Now, Rachel joins Christopher and Eric to discuss her own exciting plans for looking into the Billy Newton murder and the startling connections to the case she’s discovered through her family’s bookstore. West Hollywood is a very small town. As always, we ask you to send any tips or recollections you might have about the case to williamnewtoninvestigation@gmail.com. Justice for Billy is long overdue.(This episode was recorded remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, which might explain slight variations in sound quality.)

Promo: Launching our Autumn Series with Paul Ronalds and Rachel Mason Nunn

Good Will Hunters

Welcome to Good Will Hunters' Autumn Series. The time has come for NGOs to radically transform. Major global shifts are underway. Civic space is shrinking and the fundamental tenets of democracy – open, transparent and accountable governance – are under threat. There is growing political antagonism towards advocacy and activism, and increasing restraints face NGOs that seek to hold governments to account. For NGOs, traditional sources of funding are drying up while demand for their services and stakeholder expectations are growing, driving up costs. Covid-19 has given renewed urgency to the localisation agenda – its no longer a choice, but an operational necessity. New technologies are creating incredible opportunities to increase impact and improve efficiency but also throwing up a raft of new challenges. Our people remain the single most important element of our success but the war for the best talent is heating up. And the workplace of the 21st century is going to look completely different to that of the 20th century. More people are displaced than ever before. Gender, racial and income inequalities are not just a “developing country” problem but are global challenges facing even the wealthiest countries. Poverty is more urban, and concentrated in some of the fastest growing economies on Earth. And the climate crisis requires us to think radically differently about development. So what does all this mean? It means NGOs need to transform - and fast - in order to be relevant, sustainable and impactful. And its never been more important to have a thriving civil society. Covid-19 has taken health systems to the brink, disrupted education, destroyed livelihoods and increased instability. We need robust, creative NGOs ready and able to face these challenges. I’m your host, Paul Ronalds, Group CEO of Save the Children Australia. Along with my co-host Rachel Mason Nunn, we’ll be talking to leading global thinkers on the challenges facing NGOs and what it will take to create the NGO of the future. Join us this Autumn, along with our series partner Alinea-Whitelum, as we confront the existential challenges facing NGOs, and get inspired by the opportunities to transform our organisations to have greater impact than ever before.Stay tuned to Good Will Media social media pages for launch dates.

Navigating Music, Motherhood and Mental Health with Rachel Mason

Female Entrepreneur Musician with Bree Noble

Motherhood was something central to my music career. I only started pursuing it after I had a 2-year old. I experienced a lot of what my guest, Rachel Mason, will talk about in regards to balancing a thriving music career and being a mom. I would love you to join our Female Musician Academy. The first step is to join my free masterclass on www.musiciansprofitpath.comRachel Mason is a jill-of-all-trades and has helped many people internationally. She has always loved music and song since she was around 4 years old. She has a condition similar to Tori Amos called synesthesia wherein apart from hearing music, she can see it as colours and taste it too. Music has always been a part of her life. She studied it in school and took up classical music in University during the day and at night, she wrote music in the studio. Recently, she took up Masters in Songwriting. After University, she taught voice to students. Although she loved pop, she took up Classical Music since that was the one available in their schools. She felt her voice did not belong in usual genres so she created her own path where she does belong. One time, she had an admin job that she hated. She contacted all the local schools to see if they needed a music teacher. Eventually she found a school that took her and she was able to quit the job she didn't like. She eventually needed to set up a local group for the school and from there, she and her friends set up Euphoria Show Choir. Since show choirs were not common in the UK during that time, that venture opened a lot of doors for her, which included being invited outside of the country for judging choirs.On top of all that, she also manages independent musicians. She won a competition for self-employed people in the UK as "Freelancer of the Year". It was tough competition but the judges loved that she was so diverse and she's come through really difficult things. She works with independent musicians who do not know how to start and she is like their mom who motivates them and support them in their journey. She manages the artists but it is more of mentorship that she provides. If the publicity side is doing really good and the artist feels ready, that is where she prefers to come into her management. Being a mom of little kids, she is grateful to have a good support network that includes her husband, her parents who live nearby plus her sister and her husband. She can be home with her children during the day and does her teaching in the evening. She avoided going abroad too much since that upsets them. She takes it step-by-step since there is no real blueprint for being a working mom. She loves writing for herself and collaborating with other people. She is aware that there are some things she is good at and there are some that she is not and that other person may complement it. Aside from that, she also records music and she did one with her 3-year old.She is also a patron of a Mental Health foundation. She struggled so much going through motherhood, having post-partum psychosis (also known as postnatal depression). Eventually, she admitted to herself that there was a problem and she sought treatment. It's really good that she got the support and treatment she needed and eventually recovered. She also used songwriting to cope with how she felt whenever she was depressed. That makes her really passionate about her company, Lyrical Light. Everyone is welcome to join the group, not necessarily songwriters or singers only. I previously thought I had to give up being a mom after I had a child. You do not. Rachel agrees that it's a difficult balance but it's rewarding. You can have it all just at different points and times. She has a number of income streams she keeps. Her main one is teaching which she does at home which includes teaching choirs. She's had to do the classes virtually during this time. Aside from that, she writes songs and does commission work for choirs and other outlets. She also writes articles for different magazines and does public speaking. Just like Rachel, I always encourage musicians to have 5 or 6 income streams that you build up so that no matter what is happening in the world, you still have something to tap into. There's a lot of opportunities online now which allows us to participate in events outside of our location and still stay in the safety of your home.You can find Rachel on her website at rachelmasonmusic.com, on her Instagram @rachelmasonmusic, her Facebook Rachel Mason Music and twitter @iamrachelmason.Links mentioned in this episode: www.musiciansprofitpath.com and rachelmasonmusic.com
