Checkride Turbulence And 3 Books
"What's up. Walling a bobby how are you. I'm great nother week. 'nother show we Shows grown a lot and we want to think about the listen to the show. We are back to another check right episode. This is something. We put together that we're branding or calling. Check ride turbulence taking the bumps check rides and this week. We want to talk about really something basic to help you. Prepare for the check ride That that wally sees too few people doing and that. I enforced here about some students that come to us from other schools. Don't use these books on a regular basis and as we become commercial pilot's probably think of more but a student pilots. You should have and be aware of three big things as it relates to flying. There's obviously more but these are three things for the check. Ride the p. h. The acs and the foreign name. And if you were to bring those three books to your check ride and actually know how to use them know. What's in them. I think you'd be surprised how easy that check ride. They would go would you. Would you agree. Well absolutely i. i remember my first I grew up in an aviation family. I flew with my father quite a bit as a as a very young Young little boy. But i took my. I what i call my first real flying lesson on august. Thirty first nineteen eighty-one so almost forty years ago and it was in a tomahawk piper tomahawk. Who was two five four nine alpha and member walking The the i fly. We flew for about an hour and we walk back into the flight. School the f. b. l. And i remember my instructor taking me right up to the counter and there's a little display case there and he said you need to get that book right there and you need to learn it now. I have already done private pilot. Ground school so i already had a copy of the f. a. r. a. m. and You know. I had a jepson Private pilot book and so i was Well on my way. But i remember him saying okay. You need to buy that book and you need to know everything in it. And so that night i remember going home and opening up the po h. And starting to remember it To memorize it and learn it and you know. I remember learning the menu. The propeller manufacturer was a seventy eight inch propeller fixed pitch. And i'm i'm thinking to myself. Well okay he said. I needed to learn it so you know what that meant on that day did you. Did you instantly know what all that Probably not probably not. But i did. I learned it And nowadays I i went back. And i think of my career my aviation career and how many check rides. I've taken over my career. And i i don't know how many it is but it's a lot and i don't think i have ever taken a check ride in an airplane that i did not have a personal copy of the po h whether it be in print or digitally I went to my bookshelf. The other day and i found that tomahawk manual. I still have it. it's again. It's over forty years old. I have a a beechcraft baron manual. I have a beechcraft duchess. I've bonanza manual. I have one for a a warrior and they're old but they're they're still good information and a mess still valid and of course with the airlines You know the issue you manuals and back in the day used to be paper manuals but now it's all digitally transmitted the ipad so that makes it very nice but again i have never taken a check ride in an airplane that i did not own the manual to And you know so. What are you studying the manolo. The peo- h we're talking about here So what do you study well you know obviously limitations It's more knowing where it's more knowing how to use the manual then knowing what's in it And and i tell people man you know if you're just gonna spend ten minutes getting an overview of the manual. Maybe the table of contents for each chapter might be a thing just so you know what's in there. Yeah and we'll we'll show some of my lack of pilots. When i was a student you know. And and how i got smarter as i got more proficient in probably happens everybody but i fly. Our one eighty two a lot now flat a lot with my family. I check the fuel Obviously a lot i have. A dipstick tells me how much fuels in that and recently I think i asked a rampart or somebody to check that for me before i went then i checked it again before i went in the numbers aren't the same that i had asked for and i thought that was a little bit odd But they they they want and did that with the dipstick and they they had the wrong dipstick of course but i asked him. Do you know in the ph where to look at. How many gallons are in the tank because they had a dipstick said a different number of gallons in that particular tank and this is a student pilot who wants to learn and i wanted to teach them and also teach my staff as well as saint. Thomas said where do we look. Let's go pull out the peo- h. And look at it and it was funny. They jumped towards the back and performance in the fuel system. And all these other places but as you talk about limitations there's a pretty good summary right up in the fourth or fifth page that drives about what each tank has in it and that's a quick way to verify and to your point about knowing how to use the book i don't necessarily need to know every plane and every tank size and everything at an airport but if i'm going to go fly that plane i better know where to find out how much fuel it can hold.

Interview With Maz Saleem
"Salama's like like you very much. Thank you both for for for joining me today. so like i was. We just said we recorded this. Podcast like two three years ago and we had some technical issues so we lost the entirety of the recording. Unfortunately so we're back for round two trying to do this again So thank you again. I guess for agreement comeback. We've had a few of these kinds of who issues in a few weeks and it's frustrating. You know we we get by right. So i guess to kick off with. I think the for context. When i came across your personal story and your father story specifically I was quite alarmed. The fact that this was like going back a few years. But i was alarmed at the fact that i hadn't come across it sooner. It wasn't more prominent in the kind of mainstream And there wasn't talk of this reference of this as a particular case of anti muslim terrorism that had taken place on uk soil. And i think what's again quite alarming is that i only stumbled across it because i was kind of researching and i was trying to prove a point in an article or something that was putting together and i saw this and then i kind of went down the rabbit hole of finding out more and it was just astonishing that i there was no prominence to this so i guess i assumed that a lot of people. Listen this may not have come across yourself or your father story. So would you be able to very briefly. Kind of recap what happened. And how your family's life change in two thousand and thirteen yes of course On the twenty. Nine april twenty thirteen. That's is going to a eight years This year My father mohammed. Salim was eighty two years old at the time and he praised at the local moisture which is green mustard which is at the end of our street. And he's done that most of his life any praise at five times a day to day one so that dodge the mice jed back involve To read always press on this particular night He went to read his issue press and when he left the mosquera roundabout. Tim poston pm on this particular. Actually dad wasn't feeling great. Normally my uncle would does with him to the mosque and comes back and not nine. My uncle had some relatives so he basically said oh. I have to go home with you. Go don't worry i'll walk. You know because he's just not far as just at the end of our road and On this night my phone was followed home and know on the cc tv at one who lives on a street. Not many people will have double glazing. They can hear dot because he's not normally walking in the middle of the road because he's a quiet coup de sac area on these guys walking steak and he's normally hitting a code cannell something on the street and this particular night you can notice on the tv's walking quite fast. And then he crosses over the road to the school gate and he was basically funded home By a neo. Nazi called pablo up shane. Who'd only been in the country for five days and who got british sponsorship. He shook behind. Firstly of the british ambassador. In ukraine then go sponsorships small eve the predominantly muslim area and lived on the premises of dell com-. He followed my father home and this nine stabbed him to death from behind And then he went on a three month bombing campaign air and bombs side now bombed that saw three mosques in also over rampton tipton. This was one of the biggest oxyde terrorism on uk. So yet today your board explained now. Many people have heard the media have played down you know. At the time you know a doug's stanford they. We were prime suspects. That's how how disgusting. A was west midlands. Police say they treated our family. The came to our house and they told his record italian descent. A racist tunc. A we said you know. How can you tell us. It's not racist attack. You know tried to. They look to every other motivated by hate. Crime was never possible motive and you know we were suspects in this case as well and was quite disgusting because he had they not called pablo and we're ready to pin this on one of one of my family members. That's how reporting west midlands. Police were the way they treated us. than they were suspects united muslim household when doing source. You know when you'll pay no respects. Men and women are segregated. They had a male Family liaison officer. Googly is just standing there staring. All of us are looking at us. Like it was us and i do understand. The case is quite high number cases where certain cases off family related. When this particular circumstances they weren't and we made that playoffs and Yeah we had a very challenging time with west midlands police and yeah. We went back to taking complaints seriously. And prior to this six months earlier die My brothers jim who's got jim. Montcalm derided was receiving frightening letters from the house. If you don't close your terrorist jim. Because predominant muslims go there You just wait. What would happen and a lot of these letters. Were going out in the area. We showed those to the place. Could it be linked. But they didn't take any seriously and then six months later for the was murdered and this neo nazi was known neo nazi in ukraine. He's dip retort which add and again.

"a. father" Discussed on Knowing Faith
"Call wurley joined by my co host. Jin wilkin and jt english. What's up y'all hey team what's up. Hey hey hey pay so excited. So excited Yeah this is fine. We're in it with father abraham now and did you think. Father abraham like without a song that you knew growing up there abraham come on. Don't have left. what are you doing about. I actually don't know this. I've heard it since it became a christian. But when i hear songs like that i wonder how so many kids stayed christian. They started really rock versions. Gotten me virginia. If they have done wrapped and i definitely probably would've gotten converted through that. Yeah probably remix of abraham. jt's for the morning and so if you're a entrepreneurial knowing faceless and you think man what could win the next generation jt is saying it could quite possibly got me though. Okay everybody has a price It's pretty low. I guess today. We need to be an atm and electric of other abraham A we are so in genesis twelve. We meet a brand new character. And he's kind of a big deal. You might say Father abraham that's who he is and so it's incredibly important that we spend some time in genesis twelve verses one through nine. Which is the focus for us today. Because is abraham is not just a significant figure for the book of genesis. He's a significant figure for the entire story of scripture and the new testament of the new testament quotes the new testament references to abraham plentiful and it is very difficult to understand the old testament storyline apart from understanding the specifically genesis. Twelve one three we said. In one of our episodes last season an old testament scholar has said that genesis. Twelve one through three is an answer to the problems of the world. That's an incredible head and it's important for us to try to discover why that is today so let's just start here. Who is abraham and. Where does he come from so we can we. Can we read. It are backing up. Yeah you want back up to what i'm just saying. You said. He was introduced in chapter twelve. And that ain't true kyle. That's true it's not true. He's actually introduced us at the actor. Eleven it well. I mean seriously from a from a bible literacy standpoint. It's important to pay attention to kyle knows this. I'm just trolling him on his own. Podcast but It's important to pay attention to sort of the the textual markers that are in the book and so we've talked about the toldo statements About the these generations of statements and we covered the tower of babel at the end of last season. But that's not the end of chapter eleven the end of chapter eleven introduces us to the family. Line that's gonna point to abram and it is a direct line from sham who was figured importantly into the prophecy. That noah spoke over his sons He's going to be the faithful line and descended from shem all the way through. Tara to abram is what we find at the end of chapter eleven and we also are introduced to sarah right off the bat with a little footnote that she was barren so when we get to chapter twelve. We already have a little bit of background information on. Who abram is and where he came from so the tension has been set for us that this is going to be a significant figure and then additionally the texas doing something that we see a lot of historical narratives in the bible do it's expanding and contracting so it has expanded and contracted several times in chapters one through eleven and here. It's going to contract down to this one family whereas we've looked at all of the earth and people being spread abroad and all of that now for the rest of the book we will be contracted down to this one family line. So we're we're getting. It's there's this focus in the babbel was kind of like this big phil's like wow like when you're in genesis eleven particularly at the store babylon just feels like everybody's scattered and then we find glass on this one. Guy abraham table of nations shrunk all the way down to line of abram and so we find out that abram is from her right and is in what would have been there In their present day would have been babylonia. So that's where he's at he's way out there and this call To abraham Begins with go like you're going to leave so go from your country right so go from her and it says to the land that i will show you and i think it's important to pause here because we're a very mobile. Our generation our society. Our culture is hyper mobile right so when we think about going leaving departing leaving where your family's sprung leaving your family of origin like all those kinds of things that's a lot a lot that feels more natural to us but it wasn't natural on this day to pick up all of your things leave the place that you knew where you had land and family and relatives and say i'm leaving this place. That was not normal. And i would imagine it was definitely not normal for people in and in babylonia to be hearing from a voice from god. Telling you're gonna leave a go right. I mean just maybe. Let's just talk a little bit real quick because i think some people read this and of course god told him to go. He would go incredible social costs here. Incredible incredible risk that he's undertaking. He's pretty much going to be a stranger in lands. He doesn't know which is a pretty dangerous place to be in the ancient series. Well yeah and i think you see a progression here it says go from. I says your country than it says your kindred and then it says your father's house so you can see it's like it's pushing further and further into the things that would have mattered. Most the things that would have given the great sense of identity the greatest sense of security. And we're seeing again. A theme that was introduced in chapters one through eleven. That god is a god who separates and whereas we saw him separate light from dark and see from dry land and the waters from the waters. All of those those separations that we saw in chapters one through eleven. Now we're seeing a different kind of separation happening here where we're seeing. The righteous being called out from among the unrighteous. Now obviously at this point. Abram is still your run of the mill pagan. but we're going to see him being transformed through the narrative into that first in the line that will Bring about messiah. So yeah cow. We actually see separation from kindred and father's house as like. Yeah that's what you're supposed to do when you grow up and and leave your home and it just wasn't that way in fact i'm actually trying to bring this back. We'll old school kids. Are you listening to the podcast. Welcome children i'm all about. Let's let's by a compound in all live together it's not weird it's biblical i think that in arc in our culture in particular we have lost sight of the significance of actually. It's interesting. I don't know if you guys felt this with The pandemic of how much sense it would make to live in close physical proximity to that network of extended family. I think it's brought it back Into focus for many of us The distances feel distant. And abram would have felt all of that he he he. These were support systems that he relied.
"a. father" Discussed on Sounds of Science
"Spastic paraplegia fifty or spg. Fifty is a neurodegenerative disorder that progresses slowly from infancy patients experienced developmental delays specificity and paralysis in the lower and upper limbs and microcephaly among other symptoms. It's an autosomal recessive disorder. Which means that. The child inherits the disease causing genetic mutation from both parents. I'm joined today by terry. Pure volek s whose son. Michael was diagnosed. This ultra rare condition. Terry and his wife georgia founded the organization cure. Pg fifty in order to find gene therapy treatment for michael and all other children affected by this disease. He will tell us his family's story and give us an update on how research is going for his son. Welcome terry thank you so much for being here. We really appreciate being able to share your journey with you. So can you tell us about your family's journey with this disease. So on december seventeen two thousand seventeen michael. Our youngest son was born. It was pretty much uneventful. We went to the hospital mill the night. My wife said her you know her. Water broke our third child so we were prepared. We got there. The midwife is there and michael came out in pretty much like an hour and a half. We were home within three hours so it was. It was very quick. It was completely uneventful and he was a perfect little kid he was you know he was quiet. He was the perfect child. Around six months of age we noticed that he wasn't raising his hands and he wasn't following the milestones are other children. Were following in. My wife said know. Something's up so he brought him to the doctor in the noticed that his head was starting to fall off. The charter wasn't growing as expected. And he he had something called low muscle tone to that kind of fell into the odyssey of finding out what was wrong with him. And i think it's important to note here especially for any parents that have gone through this themselves. How agonizing this step can be especially when it turns out that it's this sort of rare disease. I imagine there were all kinds of tests and all kinds of doctors. Who were just telling you that. They didn't know what it was. And how heartbreaking. That can be for parents obviously are. I thought you know what he has. Low muscle tone as you know. It looks like he's head is smaller but don't worry about it. He'll he'll catch up. And then you know that kind of lasted three months and then we were like okay. Will he still not progressing therapies and he is improving but you know his head still isn't growing. What's going on so then we went to sick. It's hospital in toronto. And we went to infectious disease. Because i was traveling at the time to latin america and he thought maybe he adds zeka so we went down the path of siyavizy ca testing. And all the other infectious diseases. What you didn't have any of them obviously and then we moved into neurology. Team did an ira. And they found that they they saw few. You know things that were not normal but nothing major. And that's when they started doing you know the panel testing which came back all negative and then finally let. We were very lucky that they did the genetic testing and then on april second of of twenty nine thousand nine. He was diagnosed with this. You know terrible disease. And how did you find doctors that were able to tell you more information about this disease. We were really lucky. That won't april second. We were told to go home. Love michael that there was nothing really the can do for him that he will most likely be completely paralyzed with limited brain function and As parents we were absolutely devastated by drove home that night. And i honestly i don't remember how even got home. Allie member his crying on the street in the car. But we found a family 'cause we're hearing the paper. I don't know what happened. I think i lost it but denied the emailed us what the disease was in the diagnosis and we found a family that had spg forty seven out of boston and call them up that night in a panic and the as she walked us through the disease and and who are the specialists and they took care of us for the next two weeks while we mourned this significance piece of our lives. It was almost like a while. It is like a piece of our soul was taken away from us. That's a really amazingly lucky to be able to find a family and have them be so willing to help you out especially in those early days will not just not the lucky that there are. She already going in the path of gene therapy. So not only do they tell us what the disease prognosis was. But they were telling us what they were doing for their disease and for their gene therapy program and spg. Forty-seven is part of a protein complex called ap four and under that ap four there's four genes their ap for eight before and one s one g one and be one in ours was the same essence. We all have the same disease so we were very fortunate. Karachi went on that path and and and kind of guided us for the next two weeks on what we should be doing and we took it on and did it ourselves from

"a. father" Discussed on Hope for Women with Father Wounds
"We need to communicate to ourselves that it is okay to grieve. What was lost our childhood father daughter experiences desires and memories. We don't have to be super women grinning and bearing our pain. We can take the necessary time to grieve and this may take many forms. it may be through journal. Lean a support group. A counselor are tears or times of prayer and bible reading the main priority is that we give ourselves the time and space to mourn what has been lost rather than dismiss it an act as if we are not bothered by it. The third intentional decision i made was to identify the lies. I was telling myself as daughter who have been wounded by our fathers. We may tell ourselves it is our fault or that we are not loved valued seen special and wanted. The truth is that we are all these things to our heavenly father. Psalms one thirty nine thirteen to fourteen says for you created my in most being. You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you. Because i am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. I know that full will. We are god's idea he loves us really the only way to counter the lives we are tempted to believe is with the powerful and effective word of god. We have to use god's word as the barometer for truth. This requires a daily intake of god. Scriptural truth in order to readily distinguish between truth and the opposite of it hebrews four and twelve. That's the word of god is alive and active sharper than any double edged swo- sword it penetrates even the dividing soul and spirit joints and marrow. It judges the thoughts and attributes of the heart. The fourth intentional decision is to choose a lifestyle of forgiveness. Forgiveness is not dismissing the actions of our father forgiveness relinquishing. Hold him responsible for the wrong. He knowingly or unknowingly did to us the communists conception regarding forgiveness is that it is for the offender. Or if i forgive my offender then he will get away with what he has done to me. There will be no consequences. He will not suffer in the same way that i have. The truth is forgiveness is for us. It frees us from the prison. Bitterness puts us into on a cross christ died for my unforgivable acts and those of my father he endured unbearable. Agony as the ultimate reflection of mercy. He did this knowing. I would grudgingly offer this same gift. He so freely gave me with christ as my compass. I must release any and every offender. I forgive my daddy. Because i have been forgiven period and it must be noted that this choice does not justify the behavior of the guilty party it does not dismiss or excuse the accident they committed against you nor does it require forgetting denying pain or reconciliation. Forgiveness is a decision to surrender our right to hold another person responsible for the wrong that they have done to us though. I do not know the tender ache of the misdee- to suffer. I know the one who has forgiven you and your offender. Christ alone is the impetus for forgiveness now and forever if you struggle to forgive your father. Consider writing him a forgiveness letter. The fifth intentional decision was to embrace a relationship with god is my heavenly father. God in his sovereignty place encouragement in his word. But those with father wounds in psalm. Twenty seven and ten. He says my father and mother forsake me. Lord will receive me in romans. Eight and fifteen. He says the spirit you receive does not make you slave so that you live in fear again rather the spirit you receive brought about your adoption to send chip in by him. We cry abu father. God was intentional about communicating his heart towards us. He longs for us to know him as a perfect father intimately concerned about the things that concerns us. I peter five seven he cares about every tear. You have ever cried regarding your father. And he wants to replace your sorrow with hope. Mp's if you have. A father wound know that the void of a father wounded daughter is filled by the infinite love of an abundant guide. Forgiveness is more a journey than the destination when it comes to forgiving someone. Sometimes it seems like we take two steps forward and one step back. I definitely feel this way after mustering up all the strength i can to forgive. I'm seemingly catapulted back to the starting line by another wrong. Wouldn't it be great if we could all just pop some forgiveness pills and be done with it. Unfortunately it is not that simple but it is doable. Since there is no forgiveness. Caveat in the bible we all must figure out how to live a lifestyle of perpetual forgiveness whether your dad is deceased. Absent divorced unavailable incarcerated. Or you don't know who he is sis. There is hope for you. Hope to be healed. Hope to be secure. Hope to be free completely free. Hope to be satisfied with the love of god. Yes there is hope for women with father wounds.

"Line number. Three god cannot be trusted. The truth is after experiencing disappointment in my father daughter relationship. I found it difficult to trust god but as a baby begins to walk i took a step and then another in fact. I'm still taking steps in my journey with an all knowing god forever learning to trust encountering lies that separate him and i are understanding of god as father comes by faith just as it says. In second corinthians five and seven for we walk by faith not by sight. We believe that. God is our heavenly father not because it makes logical sense but because we choose to trust in the truth of god's word that says he is a father saying that god is our heavenly. Father does not mean forcibly fitting him into our understanding of the word. We have innate expectations for the role of an earthly father for girls. We may expect. The father to interrogate are male suitors. Tell us we look pretty and be there to comfort and hold us when we cry. A relationship with god is our father will not look the same as a relationship with our earthly dad. Relationship with god is cultivated by communing with him. Through prayer in prayer we remove are barriers to talking with him thus deepening our faith and relationship. This is how we come to know him as a heavenly father slowly over time as we intentionally connect with him. Overwhelmingly god communicates who he is. In the life of a christian our response is to simply believe prayer and bible reading solidify. Our faith in god as our heavenly father is a daily minute by minute. Walk with him and it requires a conscious choice to trust that god is exactly who he says. He is in the face of doubt and skepticism. God does not replace earthly fathers. He offers us a relationship with him as our perfect and unchanging heavenly father. Whether your dad is deceased absent divorce unavailable incarcerated. Or you don't even know who your father is sis. There is hope you hope to be healed. Hope to be secure. Hope to be free completely. Free hope to be satisfied with the love of god.

"a. father" Discussed on Let's Talk About It with Taylor Nolan
"Right, but in my head it was like. It was more about the relation the bond that we created even though at times. I'm sure age. It was probably more annoying because I. AM. More I didn't view it as A. Father Daughter Bond I viewed it more just like a just a bond like I didn't title it then. Daughter right right and you just have this relationship with this little kid who's biracial and there's no one in her world that. She can look to Lake. He kind of looks like me. He doesn't look like me so. Definitely for me from my side, like yeah like I was going to have the relationship friendship with your mom and then absolutely I wanted to stay involved. Throughout your life, as well, and at that, when we lived in Jersey, had you ever met anyone from my Dad's side of the family. I've never met your dad. I've seen a picture for the first time I think maybe three or two years ago. Because your mom had never showed me a picture and you gotta understand at the time like we didn't have facebook. We have you know what I mean. I think we had my space, but it was still like that still came later I think. And Puerto Rico even so yeah, thank. You showed me a picture of your dad. The first time I think like a couple of years ago. Like this is my dad like and then I think you're on your laptop or something on facebook and there was like a sibling like money his parents. And then you show me a picture on our. I was shocked at how similar you guys look, even though it makes sense. But I mean you favorite. Both of your parents think fairly, but it made sense like when you. When I saw the picture, I was like Oh. Yeah, it looks like you know. Look like your dad. But. Yeah, never met him never. I. Don't even think I saw a black person. In Bridgeton all the Times I had gone there, which makes sense because I was in a different. Yeah and I mean I think. We went to I can never remember the name of the restaurant, but I believe Steph one of your mom's friends were at this restaurant where they through the shells on the floor, and that just seems so crazy to me. Like why like is that? Even the thing but we were but. I don't think it was seafood I think it was more I. Don't remember what it was, but at what stuck in my mind. Am I, like people could eat, and this peanuts and I don't even know where the peanuts were coming from, but there were so many peanut shells on the floor, and people are just going them the floor and it was okay and everyone in the restaurant was wait like I was literally only black person, and and I knew that at the time, because when you're a black person of color. Those things pop out to you for like you look around like looking for that person to be like. Hey, like you. You don't necessarily want to go and talk to them, but it's just like, but yeah. Yes I would say all of my experiences. To Bridge ten definitely So yeah, so that always stuck in the back of my head like who? Like. Am I the first person of color that you saw. You know like I always wondered like and we didn't have the conversations. Of course it would have been. Inappropriate I think even. Me Ask your mom like Ca-. If you and your like your dad was still involved in your life, or whatever, but I knew. I would say throughout our relationship that he wasn't not because asked any questions he was, but just your the questions you started to have. That I started out yeah. Well you would ask questions like you know. Why is my nose big? We're talking about that like. Why is your nose so big I mean and. I think one time you had said to me like I'm really Tan. Like, do I can't remember who it was something about going outside, but like I was really Tan. In, you weren't so tan. But I mean heads. Yeah, but I mean and and my daughter WHO's tanned? WHO's? Mixed race, black and Mexican, and all the things I'm mixed with and landlords. Also my wife is also mixed like you know. She associates color. You know even herself now. Being like I'm I'm I'm Brown. She's not Brown. She's tend to. and then Colle- recognizes me as Brown and I don't know why you know. Papa's Brown. He's still learning his colors. And it makes sense like and I remember saying no. Papas black and I'm thinking well. He's learning colors, yeah! Yeah that's not GonNa, even so he's like Papa Brown. So so yeah, but just having those questions and then over time. I, think I just think had conversations with your mom once we established. A friendship where I felt like I, you know I felt that is more appropriate. Yeah, and so when you met me, I was living in Brixton, which is in South Jersey where I was born Cumberland County Needs Poorest County in Jersey and my mom made a decision say shortly after this break-up with Alex to move me from Bridgeton all the way across the country to Seattle She didn't want me to have the same child that she had growing up. My Biological Dad had just graduated high school was trying to make something for himself, but would also was also like getting into trouble, and wasn't really active in my life, plus also I guess it had another kid. which now we know, I'm the oldest of eleven or twelve kids so. She didn't tell anyone where she was going. Except like really she told Mom Yeah and you. Know yes, she just me because I had moved to Puerto Rico before that was the other thing. And I remember saying like Oh, I won't be able to come back to DC because. This was such this. I. Get it now like an escape. Just from Bridgetown, it was so different than and I moved to Puerto Rican. I remember comic thing. I'm just moving. You know to Seattle and I remember like thinking like what are you running from? And, I mean not the whole other episode. Yeah, but I mean at the time like I. Remember asking the question and just like I'm not running away. My Mom's there. My mom, her mom had grown up here in Washington and moved out here like a month or two after me and MOM got out here. So we have that support, but my mom was still at that point. You know a single mom, and then out here in Seattle is where she met Jason. WHO's my step? Dad, WHO's white? And they got married and he was in the Air Force at the time, and then we had moved. South Carolina and all this since I'm curious for you. You know being in a way in a way me being your practice. And then seeing you know me, have those experiences and get a father figure in my life. That is a as a white man. What that experience was? The white man okay at the White Man. What that experience was like for you or what thoughts we're going through your head in terms of like my own personal development or racial identity like having you know biological black father. WHO's not present? Or responsible and then having. A stepdad come into my life? Who was white? And I think So yeah after your mom moved here. I think our relationship. Like definitely got stronger. We talked we kept in contact more and then I would always ask what he doing. I don't remember like having a lot of phone calls like sometimes you would talk on the phone sometimes you wouldn't. And, then I would come out and visit from Puerto Rico. So. Definitely, the relationship flourished. In grew. And then. Your Mom's met Jason. And I laughed earlier not because she met Jason or actually, we're talking about moving..

"Struggling to get at in this poem that I wanted to kind of father who was liquid who was flexible. WHO's available emotionally vulnerable in a way? My father didn't often allow ouch himself to be in this moment. I talked about where he asked me if I could cry to. He wanted me to be vulnerable with him but he had already taught me that it was. It was not acceptable for males to tall. Neural So it was just remember feeling this mix signal like way. You told me not to do that. And now you're telling me to do you. Yeah and and and it was very confusing. What is a way in which your son has has changed your idea of what the man is? I interviewed him for this poem and asked him. What is this proverb may do you know fathers like warm ice cubes and incorporated his his answer into the poem which surprised me because his answer was that a father should be a form of stability and structure and the liquid? A father could boil over very easily but the ice cube father keeps it together and so when I asked what kind of father am I he goes. We'll ice this Cuba. Of course which is not the sense of ice cube was thinking at all and so pointed out to me the difference in the way a single metaphor could be understood right. We're back to this ambiguity that you were talking. I assumed that an ice cube would always be a negative image edged for him. It was a positive image image of structure and stability and consistency or the liquid. Father was something that could just wash away in blow over earn and boil over. Yeah yes to WanNa read till the end of the pump. Yes with intricacies with difficulties. A father stabbed the blunts his way into thaw which is is a spreading defect of the crystal the breaking of all its lattice of what is the ice cube. Father keeps it together. My son Jin said while the liquid father other as much less of a spine and can boil over very easily will so which him I asked ask. Ice Cube of course differentiate schizophrenics from normals researchers developed the silly thin ince's test subjects true or false statements like beef steaks crawl on their bellies. True a patient with schizophrenia answered confirming his diagnosis a cow is still alive before it slaughtered so it could be true. They could crawl. Aw on their bellies a bit. Father is like warm I skew true I say we could be a collapsed. Cube side could crawl on its belly. Abid inside the crystal where. The parallel faced hard amalgamation disintegrates as ice walls. Give themselves over to the liquid state. They once knew vibrating. Faster within and quickened and so they can reach toward a son by shedding the voids between their lattices. Thawed dribbled is freeze crystal the melt passing out of their self possession possession coming warm thick closer and getting through pink. Do you still write your dreams now. By the way yes I do. I have recorded fifty dreams in in the last six weeks and is that because it was particularly Fruitful couple of weeks dream lies. We'll I'm teaching right now. Only course that I often teach on poetry dreams which I love and as part of that we try and pay very close attention to our dreams and is that distance enough to make any sense out of your dream or does it need to be sunk into the bog slurp I don't often use dream dream images directly in a poem because I think there's a certain translation from what would I like to call dream leash language dreams into the language of English but I constantly use the ideas and the images that are haunting my dreams and I think our dreams gives us unless linear in a much more honest way of dealing with the world world and with what's going on in our lives and in our mind. Is that something that your son does too or is that just your thing that you're happy that you can do. He has a very healthy healthy attitude toward the unknown and the unconscious in and he has a very good way of talking about things that are so that our might otherwise be taboo. How old is he? He's twenty two so does he live at home or did he move on. No He's in college in in Los Angeles at the Musicians Institute. He does a lot of rob rap and his songs are wonderful. He's he's very talented verbally and and so his sons they're full of enormous amounts of word. Play and you know it makes me happy. I wonder where he gets. I can't imagine.

"Not biologically related to me. I don't know about relief But my son was born in Korea. And I don't know there's something about not having that genetic expectation I guess would be one way to put it of similarity and still feeling incredibly similar. Incredibly close that I found very beautiful. I think one one of the things is my father. I was worried. A A scared about becoming a father because my father was to me often somebody feared and and I did not want to be a figure that my son and would fear.

"Feels so unstable in a sense on the one hand the busy work of you've of the ritual and then it seems to be threatened from from all sides of cuffing that sexting and there's insomnia and there's cacophony and an utter depravity. You even pair these two words deified and defiled and I was. I'm just wondering if ritual is a way to keep that doom at bay. That's a great question I I I grew up in a very Calvin EST southern Presbyterian Church in Georgia and And I think all through my childhood ahead. This sense of God is very angry judgmental. We're constantly being told it we were full of seeing and utter depravity and I remember even as a child thinking i. I don't think I'm really that bad so I think there's a sense in this poem in particular of of trying to talk back to that notion of utter depravity while at the same time feeling a struggle between the holiness of the divine and the defiled nature of being human of being fleshed should be mortal but from early childhood faith. It's something that I clung to that. It comforted me and gave me a sense of of an order within the violence and chaos a US as still feel that way and I still I still feel that the mess of the world is part of its divinity in some way that I can't fathom but aleve must be and when do you feel that order of clearly most clearly when I'm writing writing for me so often away of of gathering up the kind of detritus of the world in an ponant together into a form of of language and of rhythm and sound and noise that pulls it into a space that feels sacred that feels in my hands. I guess would be another way. You're saying and in the hands of language which feels to me like a medium where things can multiply apply in ways that I find it really exciting. Is it because the word never just means one thing or never says anything clearly yeah well that am Beauity FM thrilling and usable. I think of words as being possessed by legions of spirits because a single a word can have so many different meanings like an eccentric votive offering the words. Sex did is a play on the canonical hours of prayer. The six hour of which at noon is sex and so the word sex did for me is double inhabited by sexuality and spirituality and so one of the words to be as double inhabited and his multiple is our experience of the world is wow with mixed mean. I'm really read the end of that poem very differently that I initially had. You know that part Laid vote of amulets like this one on little scene alters into bog slope waited centuries where they resurfacing in interpreting archaic illness tangible and still resurrections MNEMONIC delivered delivered out of and back into oblivion. Now that makes me think that you're talking about words I am. I am talking about words. But I'm thinking about the poem itself as a sacred object hoping that it will be resurrected someday dug up And understood for the first time like a Mayan artifact right that oblivion isn't permanent. Yeah and when I read your poems there are so many words in there that well first of all I have to look them up. They're not really the most readily used words. And so it seems also like you're pulling them from oblivion Bolivian than just using them. Yeah and I was wondering if you had a process for that like do you. Do you have little scraps of paper in your pocket. All Time. It down a good word that you large word lists all the time and have a big old unabridged dictionary right next next to me right now and I've used it so much that the covers have fallen off which I kind of love about it. And when I'm writing I keep it in my lap and thumb through it and two words start to leap out of the dictionary. It's the only way I can put it. There's a feeling light weapon it in a poem one time is UH language becomes haptic. You can feel it in your skin And when that starts to happen no one going to start writing I can feel the texture of them suddenly unleash change. You know. There are times when I can't ride in language is dead and then I'll open the dictionary. One day in the words are just you know crawling out of the dictionary and now often. That's the way I start writing Not from an idea but from a pile of words like looking at eccentric votive offering the word adored was one of those words that felt like it wanted to be in this poem because to Adore is to love in a romantic or erotic way but adoration is also one of the chief things we give to God's when we pray when we worship when we do any things we do to try to reach the divining kindle the divine within us and something about the sound of the word adored adored with at Terminal D sound next to the D. of plucked and the D. of laid at heavy Sombra de found sorta clicking through those lines like the Rosary Beads Cook against each other. And yes and I'm not consciously thinking I'm GonNa make a consonant. Sound is going to sound like rosary. Repeats Clicking but when I look at it now I realise unconsciously. That's yeah part of what went into the making of those lines when I was writing..

"Bruce Beasley writes poems that are equal parts essay song and Hans Magic Spell. I'd come across one of them. Eccentric votive offering in the magazine and it read like a to do list or arrested but what we were making preparing for. I couldn't quite tope. All I knew was that I carried around the poem for a few days reading it. Ah Loud to myself. And it hypnotized the hell out of me. So I got in touch with him. And we talked about his upcoming collection titled Adult Proverb Enigma. Hallelujah Bruce Beasley is originally from Macon Georgia but he now lives and teaches on the Eddie side of the country in Bellingham Washington. Close to the Canadian border. Since we talked over the phone I was curious to know where he was sitting. Hello I'm in my little writing cottage in the back of my house. What does that look like? It's a converted garage but it's very cozy a neighbor of mine. WHO's a carpenter? NDER built it for us. It's got a little woodstove and fresh meal would and a loft up on giant bookshelf with shelves on both sides of it but even then they are books piled up on the stairs to the loft. I know that problem. I wanted to start with something that used to have been interested in for very very long. Time dreams yet in a poem from you're nineteen ninety-six collections. Summer Mystic Goglia. There's as mentioned a few lines only from my dream diary age ten. Yes well well. I'd love for you to reach just that little part sure but I'd also like to know how you got into recording your dreams so early on I don't know I don't don't remember why I recorded. You know I was ten years old and it was a long long time ago from a longer poem called a mythic history of alcoholism and in this poem was telling the story of my family in my parents. Alcoholism through a series of different mythic lenses One the story of Narcissus another The Him Silent Knight and this one is telling it through the Lens of dream for my dream diary aged ten. We were primitive people. Daddy hunt for our food when he gave me fish eggs to eat. Snakes kept hatching. Hatching out of thank you you know what certainly about this. When I came on it we were primitive people in in the dream we were ancient? People like just don't h people but thinking back on it. There was a lot of primitive emotion. Shen flying around that household and so the dream as I think they always do the dream nailed it. It knew exactly what was going on. And it says so. Yeah and it also is full of allusions which I wouldn't have expected to be able to make there is a biblical passage. What's that I must've heard in Sunday school where it said something? I can't quote it exactly but something to the effect of who among you. If your child asks for food would give him a stone to this goes when he gave me fish shakes to eat. Snakes kept hatching out of in snakes as as a bad kind of food and a poor substitute for emotional nourishment. I guess would be one way to think of it. Yeah and was the language as you just read now. Daddy had to hunt for our food. was that already in there like that or did you change a lot when you wrote it. The no that's a direct transcription of the Dream Journal. Still have that dream diary. In fact it's in this room somewhere and I came upon it years and years later. I'd forgotten that I had ever done that. And it was quite interesting because I was suddenly receiving emails from from somebody who said he knew me and was fringe with as a child but I had no memory of him whatsoever and then opened up the stream diary and on every other dream. I'm was about this this person but I had no conscious memory of him. Why do you think that is i? Don't know but with quite a hard way to re re meet somebody. I had a diary in the same diarrhea had the actual diary which was as Dole as it could possibly be and every single entry began woke up and woke up a period ate breakfast period. went to school period came home period and it was like that day after day after day. Then in the back is this short list of dreams and the Dream Team still everything that the diary didn't tell. Yeah and what I love about dreams and in poems to in very similar ways is it a feel like like they cut through all that boring plodding woke up ate breakfast. Went to school came home watch. TV went to bed language that we news all the time in our lives and they cut right to the core of things. And I was telling somebody the other day when I'm at at a party and I'm having an awkward conversation feel so tempted just to say what is the most interesting thing you dreamed lately and that just cuts right into the chase. It gets right to the emotional core of things. Have you actually done that or just been ten. No but I'M GONNA try it next time in an awkward conversation.

"Didn't want to be in more than twenty five percent of the marketing and so his basically like mathematically genie takes up twenty five percent of that poster strategically looming everything as an it? It was like technically not a breach of contract. But not the classiest thing for us not to do you and it didn't stop there robin. said he didn't want his voice used in any marketing so it was a surprise when he heard his genie character in commercials. He explained his rationale like this. I don't want to sell stuff. It's the one thing I do in Morgan Mindy. They did mark dolls. I I wouldn't mind the dolls. The images there's but the voice that's me. I gave them myself when it happened. I said you know I don't do that. We can. We can infer that. At least some of this was out of spite and Jeffrey Katzenberg doing a little bit of a flex on Robin Williams before Robin committed to Aladdin he'd started working on another animation. Project called fern gullies. That Katzenberg wanted him to drop. When Robin refused Katzenberg's started started sabotaging for Angola's production as the film was coming out? Robin Williams did not do very much promotion The promotion emotion he did do was I WANNA say passive aggressive but not not the most enthusiastic you He he got out of most of it When he got a Golden Globe a special Golden Globe for his performance as Jeannie He gets up on stage and says not one word about the Disney Company. He does throw some shade of Jeffrey. Katzenberg Lake Jeffrey Katzenberg. and kind of like waves off any legis does just do basically a comedy sketch for thirty seconds and then leaves the people I want to thank. Hang Jeffrey Katzenberg. And then like in the press he effectively Wli said that the reason for this is I was. I felt kind of betrayed by them like it was genuinely unethical infraction on their part And there was this sort of this press back and forth that went on for years Where like Eisner with try to do a little bit of a mayor? Copa Lake He He pot bought him a Picasso. Like here's a Picasso rubbing one million Paul. Yeah like Rodney's like okay Yeah I think at one point one of his friends Eric idle it was like do you should make a copy of that and then burn it publicly but it won't be the real one because I'd be sacrilegious horrible but just to make a statement that this is is not what you're looking for. That would have been perfect. It is interesting that it wasn't until Katzenberg left the company that he started to actually work with them again. Robbins tiff with Disney. Wouldn't be settled until two years after Aladdin's release after Katzenberg left Disney his successor. Joe Roth issued a public apology. Admitting that they'd overstepped Robin would go on to work with Disney again and he would become come a big reason for the secular shift to casting big Hollywood names in animation films with the genie in particular. It really was lightning in a bottle oil. which is why it's so beloved and you just ever since you've just seen production companies just like trying and trying to recreate create that magic? That's all for this episode of knowing Robin Williams when we come back. Dave sits down with Chris. Gothard for a candid candid conversation. But I just knew standing backstage grin on my face.

"In the mid nineteen eighty s robbins. Film career was a bit of a dry spell. He'd done a few smaller. Other projects like Moscow on the Hudson which had a decent run he also had fantastic. Mrs Like the Best of times and club paradise so he was still seen he knows are risky talent for a big studio to cast. It had always been an aspiration of Robbins to just be successful as a film accurate. A No for himself that he could be a leading man and that that was going to be the trajectory that his career was gonna go on insists to finally have a movie that was not just successful. But that would be the number one at the box office. Robin wants described what he saw as a comedy food chain at the top. Where Eddie Murphy Bill? Murray and Steve Martin. The next level was more crowded with Tom. Hanks John Candy Robin himself and many others. You start to move down that ladder of of availability. I believe scripts. you start to I mean the word hot become tepid it would be an unexpected film. Good Good Morning Vietnam that would change this pecking order in place Robin on the top tier two rocket from the down to the DMZ os the whole movie and the character of Adrian Krone. Our were basically created for him that his managers in very active way had sought out out scoped out this story. The Real Life Adrian krone our but knew that it had a certain potential For Robbins specifically in the summer number of Nineteen eighty-seven Robin. The production team headed to Bangkok with a very aggressive timetable to release good morning Vietnam. By Christmas I spoke with the director. Actor Barry Levinson about the shoot one of the earlier scenes that we did took places because he was a teacher in teaching English. And we we did a a few takes in the morning. The Vietnamese playing students weren't that convincing to me. It's like they were saying the lines but it wasn't alive so we took a break again. It's there's one of those moments you're outside and it's like one hundred degrees and you wonder what are we gotta do. And I looked over and Robin was under a porch with with a bunch of the students. And and they're talking and he's talking and They're laughing and he's laughing and I went lo-look that's really. Oh that's really alive because Robin even has this enormous curiosity and I thought well. That's what we have to get to was the key to the whole film because it's taking Robbins uh-huh intelligence his spontaneity and his humanity. And just unleash it and and so it's not all here's my line line. Here's the line. Here's the line in becomes just very very free. It's kind of lucky that he got this kind of turning point in his career with you able oh to interact with him in a way that he probably didn't get interact with other directors. Besides maybe Howard storm with like Morgan Mindy. It sounds like they had back and forth like around poor. That was exactly what Robin needed. Was this back and forth. Well needs the back and forth and needs the freedom freedom and and at the same time there is an obligation that you're supposed to be funny all the time. Robin always has a a certain insecurity about him. You know I'll never forget when we got back to the states and you know we were shooting a incredibly fast pace you know this and that just flying through stuff and He called me and said listen. You know about that radio stuff you know. If it's not working right you know you know what we can do it here. I'll pay for the whole thing. I said Rob I got so much material. I'm going to have a hard time fitting it all in After filming wrapped Robin headed back home to San Francisco and over the next few weeks he bounced between SF and Tiburon to visit with his father who was sick with cancer. You're rob opened up to his son and his final days like never before about the youthful aspirations. He let go of the collapse of his first marriage and the regret he felt for not spending as much time with Robin and Laurie he had seen Robin starts to come into success. Certainly had seen the success of Morgan Mindy in and some of the other early roles in comedy and so he knew that things were starting to happen for Robin that he had achieved quite a lot in that and that he could finally talk to Robin especially in you know those last weeks of his life in the last days to say like you know. I am proud of what you've accomplished and I do see that you've become your own man and Robin could be honest with him and say my marriage to Valerie's really kind of over and and I you know I. I don't want to disguise that from you. And that finally the these two men can be open and relate to each other in a way that they never could before and at least before. It's too late before Robin doesn't have that chance. Dance with him and ever again. Rob Died on October. Eighteenth nineteen eighty seven. It was now up to Robin to realize his full potential. He put a lot of personal pressure on good morning. Vietnam but post production for the film was proving challenging. I asked Barry Levinson about these issues. Good morning releases. Who says about ten years from the war itself and there's apprehension around is this content going to be something that people wanna be watching right now? How is it too soon? So can you describe the tensions we were supposed to come out at around. Christmastime and then The Disney people got real nervous. And thought you know may not be good so then then a delayed the film and then there was that period that moment of like. I don't know we're GONNA come Out or what and that sort of hung over anything by chance on the Friday night that it open we were. I was riding with my wife down sunset and the CINERAMA dome. He says. Let's pull over you know. Let me let me see how many people there was near eight o'clock. I think we should. I show A purse evening show. And there's like eight people in line and I went. Oh God this is like a disaster. You know eight to ten people were in line you know and so oh My wife Diana so we'll let me go in so she goes in and comes back like ten minutes later and she said It sold out and the ten o'clock is sold out and I said well the new who were the like the ten people line says they're lining up for the midnight show and and that was a moment like Oh. Maybe we're maybe we're going to be all right. The reviews for Good Morning. Vietnam were glowing especially towards Robin. Then who would end up winning a Golden Globe for best actor in a motion picture for his performance. You've unsecured one of the highest honors in his career. So far an Oscar scurr nomination he was in contention with heavyweights like Jack. Nicholson and Michael Douglas. He established himself as a major force. In in the film World Robbins returned to the public interest. Opened them up to more scrutiny. To though over the course of Good Morning Vietnam he and Marsha had become romantically clean involved in the same week has Oscar nomination. People magazine published damaging article titled A- Comics Crisis of heart. These there's the whole story of the People magazine article which really basically it was trying to tell people that like. Somehow Marcia had come between Robin Valerie and that really was not the case but it because that was really the first way that a lot of people got introduced to Marcia and even had any sense that his marriage to Valerie's over that perception became impossible possible for them to ever shake or to undo in people's minds on April. First Robin and Valerie publicly announced their split but the damage was done. And then on April. Eleventh Robin lost out to Michael. Douglas for the Oscar so robin and Marsha stepped back from La for a bit to spend time in New York where Robyn Robin was working on stage. Play of waiting for Godot. With Steve Martin Iraq Robin loved preparing for the play he was intellectually stimulated and allowed to improvise improvise off the script in small doses. But when the show opened some critics were offended by Robbins ad libs in sex short but painful weeks the play wrapped then another. Pr Nightmare came back to haunt robin in the form of his affair with Michelle Tisch Carter for a while He and his representatives in his lawyers that had a certain amount of success keeping the legal matter contained within the courts or secret or just Not Public and then then they couldn't couldn't anymore and then Sarah Change of venue it all kind of spilled out. Michelle had originally filed the case Moderna California by in a tricky maneuver maneuver. Her Legal Counsel moved case to the San Francisco Superior Court where it was discovered by news media and all of its messy details went public. Whatever happened between Robin and Garter certainly did not look.

"This is knowing Robin Williams mcmellon podcasts. I'm your host Christie Esty West Guard and I'm Dave it's cough I'm a New York Times Culture reporter and I'm the author of a biography on Robin Williams called Robin last week. We we left off with Robin and Valerie giving birth to their son Zach. Robin Valerie's relationship is on the rocks. And after the death of his friend John Belushi Robbins trying to turn turn over a new leaf. Valerie hires a nanny. Marsha garces to help add some stability to their lives and robin also cuts back on drinking and puts an end to his affairs with other women but this reform robin has his limits. He's basically still very dedicated as a father. Zach but the marriage to To Valerie he's still basically falling apart that he's having a for sure like you know pretty one one pretty major affair on the side. Robin had ben on his best behavior for two years. The couple had earlier. Buy a home in Napa Valley to remove themselves from Los Angeles and all of its temptations but Robin couldn't permanently withdraw himself from that scene in nineteen eighty four at the Improv in Los Angeles he meets Michelle Tisch Carter. She was a twenty one year old. Cocktail waitress yes and they begin a casual fling. We have lust lust permits are sore. Sometimes men were so driven by his lust. The wave of violence FECTA comes along with it. If we can fuck it. We'll kill it. He struggled with being faithful to Valerie in staying sober. But at the same time he was also a loving father and generous and socially conscious individual his philanthropy and his left leaning politics would soon be on display. Comic relief was to some extent a kind of ad hoc doc thing already existed in Britain and now they wanted to do it in the. US and HBO was still kind of a new thing in people's homes MS and so that was a way for HBO not only to do something For a good cause and help raise money for homelessness which was You know people were really becoming much more aware of in the United States but also away for the cable channel to kind of Flex its muscle a little bit and show look how many comedy talent we can bring together all under one roof as HBO looked for hosts Robin and fellow comedian. Billy Crystal were natural fits. They shared the same manager and both had specials on the network. But there was still a missing piece Hbo Certainly understood that they needed some diversity on the bill. It couldn't just just be these two white dude's riffing all night. And that's where Whoopi came into the picture. That's what be Goldberg. But she's kind of learning and figuring billy out and Dan Robin out in the course of hosting this live special. That's going to go on for three or four hours will be Goldberg was a rising star. Who'd been legitimized with her most recent performance for the color purple but she was a wild card? No one really knew what the chemistry between the three of them would be like on stage ultimately the decision to make her a co host paid off by the end of the special viewers had donated nearly two point. Five million dollars and comic relief became an annual tradition for. HBO BE OUT. Who It establishes Robin and Billy and Whoopi first of all? Is this kind of triumvirate at anytime. The two of them were together. You're kind of expecting to the third. They have this kind of mostly easy. Give and take if you look closely at the routines. Usually somebody is the odd person out in a in a given riff riff. But for the most part they played together really well and they become thought of as kind of the the ambassadors of Improv comedy for America. The old growing hair on my show yesterday I pissed By now Robin has been in Hollywood for about a decade. He's gaining more perspective about showbusiness and can see the past era which which. He called. Just a madhouse for what it was drinking had made him bloated overweight and drugs that slowed him down call. Nine one one key became more open about his cocaine use. Something that he'd previously denied aid. He called it one of the most selfish drugs in the world. The world is as big as your nostril. As he embarked on a new chapter he ended his affair with Michelle Tisch Carter but but it was a messy split. This was somebody who was not ready to just kind of walk away from things and Carter eventually filed a suit against Robin and the terms of it kind of changed that initially. She had said that rob had gotten her pregnant and she was trying to seek Kind of child support from him and when he wouldn't do that for her then. She said that he had given her herpes. And so the circumstances were extremely embarrassing to Robin just given that he was trying to sort of maintain as a handle on his own public image. And this was. He's not in line with that for Valerie. This affair was harder to handle then robbins past transgressions because now there was a child as their marriage. Imploded Robin began going to therapy to come to terms. With the end of his marriage. It was in nineteen eighty six against this emotional backdrop that Robin Alban performed his comedy. Special live at the met live at the met ends up being much more personal show for him in the sense that he is a lot more honest about he's sobriety and he struggles with drugs and alcohol here. I had to stop drinking alcohol because I used to wake up noon Newton on my car my keys and my the thing that he is wonderfully honest about and really speaking from the heart about is the experience of being Zack's father and the imitate everything you do. I was driving in traffic. Someone cut me off. I went from a high municipal rockets and it becomes part of Zack's vocabulary too long. You follow me around the house going. It can kind of figure out the world together over the course of this comedy tour Robin also. Oh find support and a sympathetic ear from Marcia Garcia's if you recall. She was initially hired on as Zack's nanny. She steadily began helping Robin to organize his own life and was soon promoted to assistant. Marsha never came between Robin and Valerie. During their marriage he was not a home wrecker in any sense. There was no kind of attraction or any kind of Edo hanky-panky or anything like that. Between her and Robin. It was not until Robbins. Women's marriage to Valerie had really fallen apart and they had separated that Robin and Marsha started to see each other in different late. And when Robin starts doing the work for his live at the mat routine for example That's when they start to become a leading a little bit more aware of each other a little more open to each other. Marshall was often the last person robin saw before going on stage and it became a tradition for her to give Robin a hug. And tell him he could do it and that she loved Him Tamasha. It seemed like a small jester but it was transformative for Robin. He'd later recall. Marsha used I used to tell me I was a good person and finally I believed it soon. The film industry would believe it too when we come back from the Break Robin decides to put his career in the hands of one film director.

"Student father's leva and Torrens invite Michael and me to sit on a well, worn couch and easy chairs with floral upholstery. Another Jesuit father. Frank case seems curious. So he joins the conversation at first only for a moment. But he stays standing for more than an hour. Michael asks on their case about the alleged abusers who lived here over the years. Do you have an opinion as to why these things happened in in the church in the order? What of the of the scandal was that the people were covering up the coming up the abuse, which people people in charge like the bishops the bishops and the and one of the reasons I think for that is that you know, they would have if a guy was having trouble sexual addiction or like alcohol addiction anything they send them off to one of these rehab programs, and then they would come back with a good housekeeping seal of approval from some psychologists saying that he's ready to be reassigned to ministry, and you know, the bishops are not psychological experts. Still to be a Jesuit is to join a brotherhood. I do I want to want to reach out to the perpetrator to the person and say, you're still our brother we want to support you as a brother Jesuit for as long as we can. You know, they they know they're they've done wrong. So you don't have to preach preach, father alita chimes in. I think we also would pray for the victims would do the know. Whoever they are. Let you mentioned that. I was gonna ask you, do you think that they get the same kind of support that just like you said like, you're, you know, they're still your brother would get. The I don't know because that depends on their own families, usually the provincial will make contact with them. And and and try to be supportive and get them psychological help as if as needed. Father case told us he knew James pool, the priest who molested LC Boudreau he also told us he used to be the provincial here. He was in charge of the Jesuits in Alaska and the northwest. What he didn't tell us is that Wally was provincial in nineteen eighty nine. He wrote a letter endorsing James pool case called him, a Jesuit priest in very good standing this was right after pool left Alaska because too many accusations had piled up against spokesperson told us case didn't know about the accusations against pool when he wrote that letter I also found out father case used to serve in high ranking roles for the Jesuit order in Rome today, he has deep connections at Gonzaga. He's vice president of the university, and he sits on the bench. Just the chaplain of the BULLDOGS Gonzaga's beloved basketball team in short. He's a big deal. I now know how the Jesuits treated accuse priests even priests who admitted to sexual abuse. But I wanted to find out how Jesuit higher-ups treated LC Boudreau after she decided to speak up about what happened to her at the radio station in Nome, we were like, the sheep and their the shepherd, and they're not responding to their flock in a responsible way. And I became like a liability to them. She wrote a letter to the Bishop in Alaska more than twenty years after James pool. Abused her. She says the Bishop invited her to a meeting took like an hour and a half to even get him to understand what it was like for me to come forward. Not to be victim. But what it was like for me to come forward. He didn't get it. And it became very clear to me that he did not care about what happened to me. He didn't understand the effects of the abuse. He didn't knowledge that little girl. That was hurt and say, I'm sorry. This happened to you. What can I do?.
