"Mori Truesdale. Was that the shot nature Reserve, formerly known as Shot Arboretum in Gray Summit, Missouri. Near her coat to her home. All right, when she saw something that caught her eye. As I was leaving the shot Nature reserve near my home in Missouri this morning, I saw the Spider Web Which reminds me so much of our B jeez, beautiful lace collars. She said. She shot the picture got in her car turned on the radio just in time to hear our bigs eulogy being given by her rabbi. I felt so blessed to have our beegees presence in nature, said the photographer. What is this? Some Charlotte's Web wet dream. What does this word? If you look at the picture It doesn't even look like an intact spiderweb anymore. And the spider just reciting the spider got news. I'm sure the spider was just chilling out doing her thing. When all of a sudden the news came over the wire, get it seats. Spiderweb joke. That's the spider right there. The doll. This can't be the case can't be the case. So she got right to work. What Did it say that'll do pig. Or or despite to go with something different from the book. Since since, Essentially we're stealing the storyline of Charlotte's Web. Just curious. All right. So anyway, so the spiders are lamenting the Passing of RBG, which, by the way, how great is it? Watching people freak out on Twitter will because people are referring to Amy Cockney Barrett as the Notorious Did you see any of that over the weekend? They're not dealing well with that. How dare you? Yeah. Which by the way, when you do when you freak out over, Do you know what's gonna happen? More people are going to use the notorious a CB. The more butt hurt you at you act. The more people are going to use it so Freak it blue checkmark freaking out over. That is probably not a good idea. Now, here's another thing that I don't think it's a good idea. Lindsey Graham. Said on Fox News over the weekend that they expected will kind of get underway. October 12th. And he expects the nomination to get out of committee by the 22nd. What is wrong with you people? What are you doing? Waiting until October, 12th. Appointment because you could have this done in a week. And the fact is that the last time you've set a schedule like that? And you scheduled three days for hearings on the last day. A certain California senator went Oh, I have a note. I have a note here in the note. It says that the person that we're attempting Tio Survey their fitness runs rape trains, So I have a note, and it turned into a whole nother multiweek thing. Remember, those were the original original hearings with Kavanaugh emotional that That wasn't the original three days of stuff. That was after there had been in this large expansion where they brought in this note at the very last minute. So if you go anyway, talkto her. I understand that the president is president till January. I got that. What is wrong with you? Though? You're in session right now. You're not doing anything. Give me one thing that they're doing up in Washington. The one thing they're doing up in Washington, by the way, are we talking to Ted? But today? 805 baby. Ted can fill me in on something that we're doing up in Washington because I don't believe they're doing anything up in Washington start this today. Or started Tuesday, but not October. 12th. Just for the life of me. I don't understand it. I'm sure there's a political maneuvering here. Of some sort, but no Just give your going to get it done. Get it done because no, Look, here's the deal. Nobody's having their mind changed. I have to admit I didn't see the angle where they were going to go. I thought they'd go after Cockney Barrett for ah, couple decisions that she made. I did not think that they would accuse her of stealing Haitian Children. Did you see that? What covered they? They've used this before. I'm like different people. I know such a dumb argument. And I as white colonizers. Yeah. Whenever you have somebody, that's white that adopts a minority or someone from a different country. They go. Oh, well, you know, they only did that to cover their racism. Well, that's half of it. The other half is, they literally said. They've literally accused them of Deny cutting out the biological parents of the Children and denying their humanity so that they're alleging that they stolen for the purpose of not looking racist. Elias is where we are. Absolutely, And it is mind boggling The guy The guy who's making the main argument is anti racist author and diversity consultant Candy. Even candy. Who let me give you a couple fun Facts about Abram Candy if I could. So recently, Mr Kenji was provided $10 million by Jack from Twitter. So he could work on not being racist or something or non racism stuff. And in his book. He says that he thought that white people were racist aliens. Oh, you have not heard this mean like space alien like space aliens from the planet racism or something? Come here, Tio make Ah, Black people's lives and miserable. So everyone else in the planet is from here. But the white people are from a different planet, right? And they came down in the Wow. Yeah, that's something I had not heard that.
Belichick reaches milestone as Patriots top Raiders 36-20
"Everyone is time for the bonus episode postgame recap for Vegas Nation podcast. I'm your host Heidi Fang and I'm joined with our readers writers, Ed Greenie, Adam. Hill we're going to break down what happened here in the Raiders Lost Thirty six to twenty against the New England Patriots here Gillette Stadium in Foxborough at an ir up in the press box Adam back in Vegas a from my vantage point it was. A lot of mistakes made by the raiders, which is something you can't do against the bill belichick coach team. So we're GONNA get all into that here but I I want to remind everybody that we are brought to you by Salmon Ash, indeed visa and also favor. So make sure to subscribe wherever you're listening and what was your first take on what you saw out in the field today with the raiders. You're right. They did everything you can't do and win on the road or anywhere turn the ball over three times. Once rent on. Didn't protect car when they were driving. Me fumbled the Fumble Alina Game Matter Games already overby fumbled the end zone. In the second half, they just wore down defensively I actually done the first thirty minutes be interested at him. I think thought the first thirty minutes they played. As good. A defense as they haven't a while let's be honest. Thirteen points here cam help them a lot. He wasn't any third, but they were down on the second Apple Sikhism Derek. Carr in the offense couldn't stand field. He gave up two hundred and fifty yards total rushing late Sony Michelle when expert in its players per talking, you know these of League so they were down and they just couldn't match. Match up. So a bad game they printed everything you can do and what on the road so Adam how much in fact that these running bags like just through the defense offered their game because I don't think they were looking to contain the likes of three different running backs in this one I think they prepared to contain Cam Newton? What was your thoughts on the running game? I think I was definitely a part of it and I think there was definitely adjustments made. By the Patriots coaching staff because as as ED put out for the first half of the, Patriots were able to run the ball somewhat. But I thought a it wasn't. There wasn't those explosive plays. There wasn't those big plays downfield and it was a kind of picking up some yards here. They're moving the ball effectively but not really gashing the raiders defense and then. They figured out something in the run game after halftime and I'll be interested to find out the later in the week. Interested to get the the all twenty two film comes out like Tuesday. Look a little what happened but I think just at first glance without really looking into what they were doing on the line maybe differently. They definitely started to go to some more cutback plays where they I thought really were able to take advantage of some over pursuit of the writer side in particular from Jonathan Abram, who you know, we know what he can do. In terms just flying around offensively and having people would kind of sending a message for that defense but at the same time. You can use that aggression against him and I think the Patriots kind of figure that out a little bit and it really hit him with a big plays on a place where he got into the gap, he was near the bulk area but just couldn't make up Adams exactly right and and they're going to have to here's the thing about a player John Neighbor might think they love is aggressiveness in his hitting all that he's got a swagger Jim and I. Hate to say this, but sometimes, you just have to you have to balance that it's hard to tell a guy like that. Don't play this way but Adams wait we should for resod against Christian McCaffrey, over pursues too much when you take the battling new pursue Sunny Michelle Christian McCaffrey, they're gonNA come back will go so Yeah. They just didn't play the run wellness second atoms right they adjusted and you have to give Michelle credit like I said when you go For, an average of thirteen yards of Kerry and I don't know if he's ever average per carry more than seven in a games and you also have saved in job I am. But they did they didn't play offensively were out of rhythm Waller. We'll talk about that I know atoms writing thoughts. Darren WELLM was non factor when you get a lot of good at the bill Belgium at he talked about. How good daring waller as well. Guess what he must have died because they ran every defense coverage double team run in stem and stopped him. So atom I know you you wrote about this mean, what did you hear the game to her? How they? You know bottle up there wall I thought it was a group effort I. think that's what of expected to hear from the Patriots Bill. Belichick obviously didn't go into detail about what he did. I think it was just a lot of deception what they were doing offensively disguising it and Bella check pointed out. Hey, it wasn't somebody covering him necessarily a lot of zone. We played a lot of you know bracket coverage a lot of. Men under there was a lot of different things. Defensively. On Waller but I think it was more just about the looks of they're giving up the line and never letting the raiders. No. Before the play what kind of coverage is GonNa be on Waller? Want Credit Anybody I. Think mccourty would be the one that you would like added. Say. Devin mccourty that Dinnie. Tremendous job on him but it was a little bit of everybody kind of in the mixer.
Fresh update on "abram" discussed on The Peter Attia Drive
"Week, our Carol Tavares and Elliott Arnson Carols name may sound familiar to some of you because she was actually guest on the podcast back in early two, thousand seventeen along with Abram, looming when she and Abram were on to talk about hormone replacement therapy in this podcast with Elliott we talk about something very different, which is a book that they co authored in two thousand seven mistakes were made but not by me why we justify foolish beliefs bad decisions and hurtful acts. Have listened this. Much. You've probably heard me talk about this book at least once it certainly one of my favorite books and one of the books I recommend most to other people. It's important to understand the background of Caroline Elliott to understand how they came together to do this Carol received her PhD in social psychology from the University of Michigan and she's a fellow of the association for Psychological. Science. She's received numerous awards for her efforts to promote gender equality science and skepticism, and that's something that Caroline I over early. Elliott receive his PhD from Stanford in the late nineteen fifties and it was during his time at. Stanford the nineteen fifties that he trained with the Great Leon Festinger the father of the theory of cognitive dissonance he went on to teach at Harvard University, the University of Minnesota University, Texas, and UC, Santa Cruz, and eventually back at Stanford. Elliott is the only psychologist to have won the American psychological association's highest awards in all three major academic categories for distinguished service in writing and nineteen seventy-three distinguished teaching in nineteen eighty and distinguished research in one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine, and in two thousand and two he was listed among the one hundred most eminent psychologists of the twentieth century. In this episode, we talk about how Carol and Elliott began to work together on this project what prompted them to ultimately write the book. And we talk a little bit about how cognitive dissonance shows up in many aspects of our lives, not just in science but also in politics in criminal justice, how it is shown up historically and perhaps most importantly how we can train ourselves to not be victims of some of the worst aspects of cognitive dissonance and dissonant behavior, and instead how we can use our understanding why our minds naturally try to reduce the pain of cognitive dissonance to actually hack it a little bit and try to instead be as intellectually. Honest. As possible by the end of this episode, you'll understand that there's really no one who is immune from this whether you're a doctor, a lawyer, a DA, a mental health worker scientists we all suffer from the pain of cognitive dissonance and really the question is, what do we do with that discomfort are able to sit in it or do we succumb to it? I found this to be fascinating discussion and I hope you do as well. So without further delay, please enjoy my conversation with Carol Tavares and Elliott arends. John Carroll.
How Climate Migration Will Reshape America
"Joining me in the studio is collateral producer off multiple twenty, four hours the urban Est.. Calendar. Will Not so much first of all, what's going on in our cities but the possibility that people might not want to leave them very much anymore. Yes. This is a story quite a long read on the New York Times how climate migration will reshape America this is my Abram looks Tarkhan who is a senior environment reporter for Propublica and he has for the past two years are so been. Investigating exactly how climate will impact cities and countries around the world. Now, we do have a tendency to when we think about that to think you know about rising sea levels to think about other places, not the US but if there's anything that this recent fire season has showed that America will very much be defined by this I. Mean we don't even have enough time on this show. To go through everything he writes but I would like to highlight a few things If I may one of them is just how much Americans don associate climate migration are something that might happen to them. Now does a few pointers here of why that might one of the ones I found. My most fascinating is because it is a very rich country and it does sort of thing. I think that's the commonality those rich and fortunate places. They think bad things happen to other people exactly and it's like if I have money I can solve it. But you know we the fact that you know a lot of the houses in Florida for example, in a few decades will be below sea level is something that people know already but for example, one of the things that he. Highlights. Here is how across the United States around one, hundred, sixty, two, million people. So that's nearly one in every two people will most likely experience a decline in the quality of life of their environment, the environment throughout their lifetime, which is quite insane and by twenty seventy, the analysis on this report suggests that you know if carbon emissions are not cuts after continuous extreme levels at least four million Americans could find themselves living at the French. So places that are con- considered to be outside the ideal for human life. He poses a really interesting question, which is what is the cost of actually resisting this new climate reality and especially in an election year when you have one side completely advocating for some change in another complete denying it seems like a question that is more pertinent than ever is a very fascinating and daunting investigation that he he spoke to four dozen experts from economists, people that work demography climate scientists even insurance executives to realize all of this and I encourage everyone to look at it might be scary but. We need to be aware of
Why Consciousness Upholds Creation
"Hi My friends I'm Deepak Chopra. This is daily breath. Today I want to answer the question that delays everything. Can existence take care of itself. And my answer is, yes. Let's talk about how consciousness. Polls creation. At this moment, we're surrounded by the infinite intelligence and creative bar of consciousness. This is nature's secret life his consciousness. The principles that consciousness follows but. Everything. The most basic light poems follow the principles of consciousness which are self organization. Even, the most basic lifeforms know exactly how to stay alive. Have you ever heard of an organism called the Yellow Blob. Known as Feis Abram. Policy. This organism exhibits qualities of consciousness. It is an example of our existence can take care of itself. If you want to know more about this organism. Beulah read my book but it's a simple fungus like organism that shows all the properties of snus that you and I have as human beings. So consciousness and existence must go together. There's no such thing as blackness consciousness is always a life life was generated in the field of consciousness it is already alive. Life is invisible until consciousness takes physical.

Will mail-in voting be fair in 2020 election?
"National cochair for the Biden campaign. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. Good morning to you. Great to be with you, Margaret. Thank you for having me. I want to start on the issue of voting because your state was specifically mentioned there by Rana McDaniel as having increased mail in ballots during the pandemic. During the March presidential primary, More than 100,000 mail in ballots were rejected by election officials, according to Data that had been gathered by the AP. Given that experience, doesn't that indicate that there are some significant gaps in terms of your state's election integrity? Democracy is not an easy thing, Margaret, of course, but I have a very deep confidence in our secretary of state Alex Padilla in our counties to be able to run elections in to run them well, and the difference is that we're trying to run elections that expand democracy that give the vote to everybody where we see a war on voters in other states run by Republicans who literally want to take people off the Ballot. Take him off the election rolls, You know, period here, a different middle Initial. We saw it happen with Stacey Abrams in Georgia. She would be governor today, Daniel so ironic that Republicans No. We're doing making sure that every American in California who can vote will vote That is, I think what a democracy is about why we make it so difficult for Americans to vote? It seems to be anti democratic with a small D. And so we're going to make sure that we have not only safe and secure elections, but a paper trail as well. Something I think all folks from both the right and left have called for for years. I simply don't understand. Why this president fears this. It's probably because he knows he's going to lose on the
2020 D.N.C. Updates: What to Watch for on Night 2
"Second night of the Democratic National Convention will include former presidents and a very unique event that's never been done before. Joining us live double duty. Opie's Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller. Okay, Mitch, former first lady Michelle Obama had the big moment last night. What are Democrats doing tonight? For the encore? Welsh on they're going to have to former presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton speaking tonight, Jimmy Carter is to appear virtually with his wife, Rosalyn. This will be his first speech of the Democratic National Convention in eight years. He is now 95 years old. Bill Clinton's speech will be a lot different than an infamous one he gave when he was a rising political star is the governor of Arkansas Back in 1988 in Atlanta. He was supposed to speak of that convention for about 15 minutes. Instead, politicos will remember that he went on for nearly 40 minutes, and he actually got one of his biggest applause lines when he said in conclusion, That speech almost blew his national political aspirations. But he wasn't known for as the comeback kid for nothing any, of course, went on to become president. 18 92. The part of party does plan to feature a long list of potential rising stars tonight, including Stacey Abrams, who ran for governor of Virginia are rather of Georgia and New York's Alexandria, Ocasio Cortez. There's been some grumbling from the more liberal wing of the party that AOC is she's known as didn't get more time tonight. Also also speaking tonight, former presidential candidate John Kerry and Jill Biden. Now The regular part of conventions usually have that state roll call, and it has all kind of pageantry involved, but it will be very different this time around. Tell us about that. It will. I mean, everybody who's watched many political conventions over the years kind of loves that whole crazy, colorful moment when everybody brags on their state and talks about how either big or how great they are and how many electoral votes they have this time, there's going to be a virtual roll call. It's supposed to go across the country to every state in territory and only about 30 minutes, so it will lack that pageantry and colorful detail that we usually see. But each state will try to make a memorable moment. D. C. Mayor Mariel Bowser is expected to speak for the district and will call for DC State would statehood, which has gained some momentum here in Congress, at least on the House side after earlier approval of legislation this year, and many of the state messages will have a personal touch on the positive side. For viewers. The state roll call can be very long and me and During during a normal convention. So this time we'll While it will lack the pop, it

"It required that I carve out my own space sometimes I would go in at a closet so I could read and just not have to talk to people we had this very Mike my Parents told us your job is to take care of each other and we are all still very close. We have a monthly book club. Right. We we we we believe in one another, and so I could not imagine not having them as siblings. I mean look I was. Like I was about fifteen. Before I realized snickers really could satisfy 'cause they didn't to divide it up with everybody and having a whole candy bar to yourself was a revelatory moment. I am I am truly truly grateful for having the siblings that I have. I think I mentioned to you earlier. My it was my sisters. We all fell in love with Dr who the my youngest sister we indoctrinated her later and it was one of our family traditions the kids we would watch doctor who on Saturdays when PBS would run it right and it was like one of those moments where we all just sort of be together how hard the world was. Outside there was a space in this place, we could travel to and this fun adventure we could engage in and being able to do that not simply by myself but to have you come comrades who travel with me in these moments extraordinary. Yeah. I mean looking after six kids is a lot where your parents were these the story but where these strict to. Do. All right. So we had three rules, go to church, go to school take care of each other we were each assigned each of the older three were signed younger three. So I was assigned my brother Richard Andrea was assigned Janine because she was the baby and she would be the least likely to drop her and Leslie was assigned to Walter. WHO Is the the fifth. So we were each assigned a child that meant you make sure they got up in the morning. They did their homework they got dressed. If they got in trouble, you had to be sure that they survived that trouble. So he got into a fight. Make sure you win it 'cause you're both GonNa get in trouble when you got home. That's great. I have five kids. So I could almost did you can't. That's not a bad idea and I'm sure there's one kid who probably needs to people assign. yes. At it's probably eighteen year old who? Tough to. That's great. Yes I might. I might look into that. As a way of working things very efficient. And you you were born in Madison Wisconsin you move to Gulfport Mississippi and what could have communities were those you said you were working poor. So there wasn't a lot of money now. So when we were in Wisconsin my mom was finishing up graduate school ed so I think things were bodily. Okay. My Dad worked full time. My mom was in Grad school shed fellowship she worked at a library and then when we moved back to Mississippi when I was three and we did we lived in this modest community called the College Park Subdivision, we lived on twenty twenty South Street. And it was Nosal Postage Stamp House? That was not designed for eight people, but my parents made it. Yeah And then you moved to To Georgia and book your parents became ordained in the ministry. Yes. At the same time they both sort of retrained or yeah. So my dad had been ordained as a baptist preacher when he was in his early twenties, but he never meant he never had a church and Baptist tradition. It's it was much more just the acknowledging calling. My mom really resisted for a long time because she was raised in the Baptist tradition in the south which said that God doesn't call women to be ministers even though all of her life what we've watched her do both in terms of her social engagement but also in our religious. I'd say that's my parents may not become ministers until they were in their forties, but they were always preachers and so when they both accepted their call we we moved to methodism. We'd Become Methodist and converted my dad he'd grown up in both the methodists in the Baptist Church because his parents were a mixed denomination family. So we became methods when I was. Twelve, and then by the time of fifteen, they both accepted they're calling but because they believe in education so much they refused to just go into the ministry they said we need to we need to learn, and so they both applied to emory university and were admitted to the Camera School Theology, and we moved there when I was fifteen and they were both forty. Right. I was a child minister to I didn't do that. What S Church of Scotland Presbyterian Yeah. And did you feel as well having both parents? As as ministers did you feel that you are expected to behave in a certain way? Were you scrutinized by the community as the? As the the child of the. Of, of the ministers we were scrutinized before that. So it just finally formalized it. My parents were very strict they were not no. Puritanical way. But in a very like their expectations of our behavior, their expectations of our. Our comportment we were never going to be the children that they had to go and check on at school. If Mom and dad got called to the school, it should be to get an award for you. It should not because I explained her behavior. and. We you know we all have perfect attendance. We were all pretty pretty good academically and the movie moved to Georgia, and they became pastors Again there was there was a sense of. I was actually out of school I was in college by the time they were practising ministers. So my younger siblings really experienced that more than I did but there Dr Nation again indoctrinate. Word. Amusing. Apparently today but they're they're they're molding of my character it much set. So by the time I got to college I behaved like a double PK whether. It was official or not how much of a parallel do you recognize the life of a preacher on the life of a politician? I sorry. I will say this I think. I think the church is one of the most political, a organizations in the world Nandy as you likely know, and so this notion that there are some distance is a bit of a farce, right? It's you know if you're on the political side. It's a much clearer set of rules that are broken. Rights rights, and and the expectations are different. I teased my parents when I became A. Politician I said. I went about as far away from them as I could attack attorney and a politician I've done all the things you're not supposed to do. He Georgia Hi, David I think we can all recognize it sometimes, life can feel a bit much. and. Sometimes, what you really need is to be able to talk to someone in that can help things to feel a little less bleak..

"Our time is now which is all about what needs to be done to to swing the balance of power in the US to achieve a fair society and it's it's very positive and optimistic. Also. Pragmatic. I was very struck by the but we you knowledge that that legislative victory or shifts in public perceptions don't necessarily lead to overnight changes in how things happen at that journey to a better places a slow one the you have a phrase and winning doesn't always mean you get the prize it's it can be. You know it can be a an incremental thing at which is very, very, very trained, very perceptive but also. The moment I am right now I'm talking to you mid July. Twenty twenty. The election that is less than four months away in your country night as urgent and is now on this, the prize really is needed. This time isn't it absolutely is GonNa win. Yes but we have to work and that's the whole point the point is. There is an exigency this moment that is unlike anything that preceded it, but there's also. The benefit and harm of having institutions of having systems the systems don't change just because you will it so. The world doesn't reorganize itself around a moment. It takes time because even if you get a flash of. Of Transformation there will always be something that pushes it back and so is as ignominious as the behavior of Donald. Trump has been. There have been correctives all along the way not enough to undo what he's done but enough to mitigate his arm and the same thing happens with the pursuit of good. There will be mitigation of that good because evil doesn't go away simply because you defeated on one front and my my admonition is we've got a remember we've been fighting these battles, the US for more than two centuries, and there is no savior coming. There is no moment of salvation were all will be well and we will lock arms. We've seen an even the most idyllic countries, these moments of retrenchment or Or the surge of wrong and so I, believed Ovine will win I believe we can make certain that happens but there are so many things we have to do to make that. So so it's not enough that people want him to win not enough that we want trump to go. We have to do the work to get there and that was the point of the book we have all the tools. Our time is now we've got all the things we need, but if we don't use them, then we don't win and what happens to America if Biden doesn't win in November. I mean, how scared should we BE AFFORD? Trump will do next I, have vast and vivid imagination. I cannot predict but I will tell you what I know I know this is a man who has done his best to weaponize almost every facet of our democracy to serve his personal ends and the ends of his cronies I know this is a man who idolizes strongman authoritarian and has done his best to undermine the democratic values in processes of our country. I know that his allies in every stage in every level of government have abandoned their allegiance Sinfield t to democracy. In. Pursuit of our own private ends and some of it's driven by. For money others are driven by avarice. For. Power. But what terrifies me is that if we do not thwart their advance, we have not seen a sufficient number of people willing to actually do good to believe we can survive. With the fifty year history of American leadership that we have seen and that we will succumb unfortunately to. The same fate that have befallen other strong democracies that have just crumbled in the last twenty years. You you do fear for the end of democracy in America it's this is the moment or face yes. I know it sounds hyperbolic but. We'll to some. But I think we have to remember Turkey was a was a an enviable democracy sure a decade ago Hungary was. A Shining Star, how you emerged from communism and embrace who you are. We just watch DUDA get reelected in Poland and the likelihood that they will become a full-fledged strongman state is huge and so this notion that we are impervious because we're America is deeply problematic to me because authoritarianism doesn't care about your continent. It doesn't care about your history cares about your willingness to block its progress and when it's driven by this kind of a liberal populism. Our urgency has to begin last year and the year before that, and we just haven't seen it happen. I much of what you do in the passions that you have was land from your parents. My parents raised us to believe that if you see problems, you fix them, they raised us to believe that poverty is wrong and that we have a personal responsibility to tackle it that justice is right to endure role is to interfere in intercede and do it. You can. There was always a narrative in our household did here's what good looks like we would watch the evening news we would talk about the news of the day you were. Right, Oh, yeah, we and they would take us with them to vote. They would take us to protest protested apartheid and we did soup kitchens and homeless shelters and and this is all well, we sometimes had no running water sometimes lights cut off we will working poor. So their commitment wasn't purely selfless. It was you don't do do for yourself. You do for others because there but for the grace of God, go you. So we're GONNA do things for everybody else and my dad's returns way of saying it was you know having nothing. is no excuse for doing nothing. So you got to be a part of it and write it worked.

Garmin reportedly paid millions to resolve its recent ransomware attack
"Garment Hack. Lawrence Abrams bleeping computer as we know, as always had a strong interest in ransomware. So I'm not surprised that his coverage of the Garmin ransomware attack was the most detailed of any I've seen nor that he's had access to some. Insiders who have reached out to provide him some extra tasty bits. Among. Other things an employee inside Garmon informed him that the initial ransom demand was for ten million dollars. Oh. Yeah. Holy Moly. Dead. Dead million dollars. Okay. We don't know what ransom was finally paid. But it seems more certain than ever. That Garmon did pay up Lawrence wrote. After a four day outage, Garmon suddenly announced that they were starting to restore services and it made us suspect that they paid the ransom to receive a decrypt her. then. Last Saturday. Lawrence posted today bleeping computer gained access to an execute, -able created by the garment it department to Decrypt a workstation and then install a variety of security software on the machine. Since wasted locker. That's the ransomware is an enterprise targeting ransomware with no known weaknesses in their encryption algorithm. Decrypt, her cannot be made for free. And remember that bleeping computer has has been sort of a focal point four. The less than well designed ransom. Where mistakes were found in the encryption which allowed for the creation of a no charge, dijk crypt door and those have been organized and are are and can be found through bleeping computer. So he said to obtain a working decryption key Garmon must have paid the ransom to the attackers and he said this is where he said is not known how much was paid, but as previously stated, an employee told bleeping computer that the original ransom demand was for ten million dollars. When extracted this restoration package? This is the one that they that they received. A copy of that had been prepared by garments it department. This. Restoration package includes various security software installers, a decryption key, a wasted locker decrypt door, and a script to run them all. When executed the restoration package, decrypt the computer and then preps the machine with security software. Garments stripped contains a time stamp of July Twenty Fifth Twenty Twenty, which indicates that the ransom was paid either on the twenty fourth or twenty fifth. Using the sample of wasted locker from the garment attack, that is the actual. The actual ransomware from the garment attack bleeping computer encrypted did a virtual machine. And tested the decrypt her to see if it would decrypt their files. He said in our test, the decrypt. Decrypt files. So Interesting was that the package received by bleeping computer included references to both the cyber security firm Ms Soft E.. M.. S., I S O. F T. R. M, m cysts, soft sorry. Emphasis soft, and the ransomware negotiations service cove wear. When bleeping computer subsequently reached out to cove where they were told that they do not comment on any ransomware incidents reported in the media. And similarly emphasise soft toll bleeping computer that they could not comment on any cases that they create decryption tools and are not involved in ransom payments. Brett callow a threat analyst at. Mc Soft said, I cannot comment on specific cases, but generally speaking emphasis soft has no involvement whatsoever in negotiating or transacting ransom payments. We simply create decryption tools. Okay. Now, that's interesting news. So it might seem odd for a reputable security firms such as m soft to to have anything to do with ransomware, but they have an interesting angle. As we know, the decryption side of the ransomware mess sometimes receives much less attention from the bad guys who need to create the decrypt her Dan, the encryption side. Consequently. The decrypt have tended historically to be buggy to crash or to for some reason, fail to fully undo the damage that they had originally done despite. Having, received a valid key. So that's where M soft comes in. They reverse engineer questionable ransomware decrypt. There's for which the decryption key is known. To create a more robust and reliable decrypt her for a victims systems. Emphasis soft ransomware recovery services, page states if the ransomware. If the ransom has been paid, but the attacker provided decrypt is slow or faulty. We can extract the decryption code and create a custom built solution that decrypt up to fifty percent faster with less risk of data damage or loss. So. This also explains why the decryption package garment finally used also contained legitimate security software. That extra security software along with improved decrypt, her may have been provided by emphasis soft or may have been. Put together by garments it. And of course, as we mentioned last week, now that evil corporate has been attributed as the creator of wasted locker and has been placed on the US sanctions list for using dry decks to cause more than one hundred, million dollars in financial damages. Paying this ransom could lead to hefty fines from the government. So do these sanctions sources familiar with cove where have told bleeping computer that the negotiation company has placed wasted locker on their own restricted list starting in early July and will not be handed handling negotiations for related attacks.

Powerful Everyday Opportunities To Persuade
"Today is no different. My guest today is Brian. A hearn. Brian is the chief influence officer at influence people. He is an international keynote speaker and specializes in in applying the science of influence everyday situations. Brian is one of only twenty individuals in the world, who currently holds the Chaldean Dini method certified trainer designation designation. Now trouble speaking back Brian's book influence people powerful everyday opportunities to persuade that are lasting and ethical is an Amazon bestseller, and is linked in courses have been viewed by more than ninety thousand people. Thanks so much for joining me today. Brian it's my pleasure Diana. Look forward to sharing with your audience. Well I look forward to this conversation that we're GONNA have now. For you. People actually stands for. Powerful everyday opportunities to persuade that are less than ethical, and I have to tell you that I I love that I. That is a really awesome. And so. My first question is, can you? Share some about why Understanding influence is something that is powerful. Sure. And thank you for the compliment on the acronym I. Don't remember when I came up with it, but when I did, it was like a light bulb coming on like holy cow. This is perfect for what I do. It's powerful because everything that we talk about and when I say we I talk about the other child, Dini trainers and myself specifically. Everything that we talk about is based on research. This is not Bryan Abrams. Good advice doesn't let me tell you what worked for me or look at. That person will work for them. This is based empirical data from more than seven decades of research from social psychology. More recently, behavioral Economics I would like in it to this. If you wanted to get healthy, you could talk to your neighbor, and they might give you some decent advice, but you'd be better off looking at what research has to say from Ab Exercise Physiology Dietitians and knowing that actually works on large numbers of people, and so that's why I say it's powerful. Okay and and you say it's an everyday skill. So can you explain that like? We, use the skill of influence every single day and I like to often say from womb to tomb. We are trying to get people to meet our needs. A baby doesn't know exactly what it's doing or why it's doing it. But when it comes out of the womb at cries, it might WanNa be fed or held or burp or changed, but it has a need. It's trying to get met, and as we grow into adults. We learn different ways that we try to get our needs met. Some people learn how to do it well and some don't but is a skill that we're using every day. And I often share a quote from a called to sell is human, which is written by Dan? Pink And in the BOOKIE, sites survey of more than seven thousand American business workers who were asked the question? How much of your day do you spend trying to influence? Persuade convince people not related to making sale,
"Today's interview is cool for a lot of reasons for one. He's in sales and for all of the emails that I get from people who are in sales and struggle with drinking at conferences and events just know that you're not allowed second dusty. That's our interviewee. Today dusty went all in. He'll explain what it's like to go to detox. He went to i. o P, which is a great kind of middle of the road option if you're not able to go to an inpatient treatment center, but you need more help than just trying to do this on your own, but this is the real kicker. He also told his CEO about getting sober. And telling our bosses or colleagues that we're struggling with alcohol is a huge scare for so many people and totally. Totally valid were very black or white people. You know and probably assumed that needing treatment is a reason that we need to be fired. You know that was an alcoholic or whatever? Where do you WANNA use and that? We just deserve to be canned and I can't stress this, too. You enough. That's not the case. If you're in a place with your drinking where you need to take the time off work to go, get healthy. That's worth talking to somebody about. Be Surprised at one. How supportive your work people might be into that. You have protection from Fmla the Family Medical Leave Act. Laws vary state by state. So this is something you're. GonNa need to do your own research on Start with googling it or ask your HR person, but saying I'm having trouble with my health and I need some help is not enough for. For you to get canned, this is not the first time either. I've heard a story. Where someone told their boss, they were struggling and got nothing but total support. It's been shared on a handful of stories on this podcast and I. Don't think they're unique. People want to help you and I think it's really brave when you can give them the opportunity to do that. The other part of this interview that I WANNA point out. That's Kinda special, because we don't always get to talk about. It is detox detoxing from alcohol? If you're heavy, drinker can be incredibly dangerous, if not deadly if you're doing it on your own especially, if you have experienced physical withdrawals before I probably not share this enough when telling my own story of sobriety with other groups, and on other podcasts, because I did quit cold, Turkey, and that wasn't safe. Alcohol withdrawal can do more than just give you seizures. It can kill you and there's no. No gold standard for measuring timeline of how long you have to drink in order to experience withdrawal by the way for anyone who was wondering why liquor stores were still open during the yeah covid nineteen like quarantine shutdown liquor stores were considered an essential business. That's why because some people are so physically dependent on alcohol that not having hall is too high of a risk for killing some people or sending them to the hospital, and that was the whole part of the quarantine is that we had to make room for all these hospital beds right? So back to detox when I quit drinking, I was in a period of heavy long-term drinking, but it was so stealth that most people had no idea, but I still went through three days of detoxing feeling like total dog shit like I had the flu. My kidneys hurt like my actual organs hurt I. had a fever sweated profusely when I slept. had a hard time or even just getting up and taking my dog out, and I was also an idiot for not telling my doctor about this and I'm a smart girl, but that was a dumb move, so if you're not sure, please talk to your doctor. They won't shame you. I know it's going to feel a little bit embarrassing, but it is so much better to be safe than to be dead and detoxing by yourself can absolutely do that. It can be fatal, so please please please be careful. All right before we get started a little housekeeping.

"abram" Discussed on Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend
"Wait a minute I love your friendship with my eye but it was. It was this and you realize you know the point of view the perspective. How critical that all those decisions are and seeing a shot directed by one of the great directors in one of the great movies and you go. Oh they chose not to use that. Of course they chose not to use that. But you just realize how close we all are to you. Know even the greats can make can make decisions that they think will work and they later if they're lucky they realize not to use them. Yeah I think it may be Apocryphal. But I'm pretty sure that I think they shot like three. They shot them but they had three possible endings for Casablanca and one of them was Humphrey. Bogart's Bourbon Baby. I'm coming with you. Fuck the French Guy. And they get on the plane and he can find someone else about the same. Yeah and then the plane takes off and Kooky music plays Sax Benny Hill. I would have been right. Yeah they they missed an opportunity talking with the war in hip hop beats. And that's all you need to know you WANNA follow their story more Casablanca to you know. I always wonder how people come at. You know the different angles. They come at things and I didn't know this when I first met you and I found out later on that initially the way you were approaching all this was through music. I mean you were very sitted music. You are very interested in in how things in in scoring how things were is that is that true or just have lousy information. I I love music. I'm always working on on on different tunes and I've done theme songs to some of the shows we've done and when I was growing up. There were no vhs tapes there were no DVD's or or blue razors streaming. It was like obviously like like with you you saw on TV or what was in the theaters and that was it. Looked like it or lump it and so for me what I would do is I would buy a record store nearby where I lived in in Westwood. That sold that were they. Were sent out from guess sort of as her samples that were sold inexpensively so they were like they had little holes were punched out of the top corner and you could buy them for for two bucks and all the soundtracks where they're you know none of this sort of hit records but all the soundtracks soundtracks like every weekend and go home and listen to soundtracks. Because I can tell. The story was based on the the music and looking at the names of the the tracks and so I would lie there with with headphones on like we have on now and I would be. Just you know looking at the soundtrack album cover and reading the names of the tracks and sort of whatever information that might have on the back and feel. I'd be watching the movie because certainly with with with composers like John Williams Jerry Goldsmith Maurice Jarre. There are certain people that like they just they told the story in their music and so I always loved that and and I remember we had a little stand up piano at home and I would like you know sort of Bang on the piano and sort of pretend those were cello or whatever and and people would walk by and stop in my mind. It was like I could hear you know answering nurturing household but what would I later what I what I learned. Was that there were there. Were these things called synthesizers and samplers? And I couldn't afford them until later but when I finally got my hands on them the idea that you could create most any sound you know allowed me to begin to to make music never as good as or as well as I like or as good as as people who I know who for real but I love it like crazy and actually even did did music for a movie when I was a teenager. That was called night beast. That was a movie released by trauma. Remember and it was it was it was these but made by a man named Don dolar who is a director in Baltimore. He was sort of the horror equivalent John Waters and he would do these crazy pretty. Diy horror movies. That were sort of wonderful in their weird little way and so he he he made these magazines call. Cinemagica as a kid. There was no internet either so it was like I learned how to do animation. Stop motion stuff or titles. Whatever through these magazines and I remember writing a letter to him and he was like working on a new movie and like. Oh Wow I I love to do something like that the soundtrack I was like sure I'm sixteen so I ended up doing doing some of the music for that movie and it was like it was first break. That's fantastic. It's either a really good sign or a bad sign when a sixteen year old. Just randomly rights filmmaking. He goes like sounds good. Hey why don't you get so I? I wish this story had a better ending. And you'll see why when we were shooting the pilot for lost and we were on the airplane set and I believe it was probably the same airplanes at that you and I shot on and during lunch. Break these people coming to like look and location scout the airplane as a fucking airplanes and airplane anyway so they're looking to end and the person who has scouting was Roger Cormon. Oh Wow and I went up to him and like Mr Carmen. There's film in the cameras. If you WANNA film anything you want right now go ahead. Because he's the kind of guy who would shoot anything anywhere and just steal shots and he didn't and there's no story other than I met Roger Cormon and you know I I did get my shot in film which was do you remember. The name of it was it short. Shark Nayyar Shark Puss. Your can forget how this even came about but this was about ten years ago. They said I'd just crazy stuff comes over the transom. And then one thing was would like to do a cameo in Roger Cormon Shark to Puss and I said you had me at would Conan like too so I was. I was just Roger Cormon. You're kidding is he going to actually direct and they said yes so I I went to the beach which I think is actually a all roads lead back. Everything The same beach where they shot the ending of planet of the Apes. I went to that beach and my job was to play. Conan O'Brien insufferable. I'm wearing A. I'm wearing a blue blazer a yawning cap and I have an assistant remember. I had an actress playing my assistant. Son Remember this right. Yeah and she was fanning you or she was fanning me like on some absolutely out of touch than I have and some kids are playing volleyball and they knocked the volleyball and it hits me and I jumped up and I start screaming at them. I'm Conan O'Brien do has any idea that one of the top television comedians. And as I'm screaming you see a long tentacle. Come out of the water. Oh come on. That's IT GOES. It goes up my ass out my mouth knocking the cap off my head and then It rips my head off the head rolls over toward the volleyball players. Are they pick it up and continue playing volleyball with my separate head and I have yes. I'll give it to you. It's one of my favorite. It's yeah it was just one of those. I think I was there for four hours and I've never been more certain I was doing the right thing. I've never been more certain that might time. I've taken long walks with daughter were. I've talked about life and time with Roger. Corman was much better asked how was it. He was great. He was terrific. He seemed like he was in icon. That guy yeah yeah really just absolutely just absolutely unbelievable experience which you know. I don't know if you're able to step outside your situation now. I know you know you to be a very humble guy. But you've now created that kind of you know body of work where you're GONNA have you already have people? I mean the Times that you've even past my children. They wonder why you would ever spend a second with me. They've just they knew they put you on such a pedestal. Like can you believe that J.j? Abrams you know I I know that it is. It is the format of of the podcast. Say My name is. I feel this way about being your friend but the reason I do feel exceeding lucky is not just because obviously. You're a lovely guy. I know this is sounds sycophantic and stuff but what I really truly believe despite everything that has happened in the nearly thirty years which I cannot believe that have passed the fact that I was sitting in that audience on that day. Watching you as this young comic. Come out to you know. Begin in this kind of this crazy sort of precipitous moment for you like like what was going to be you know and to get to see and have that audience electricity and to feel like. Oh here's a guy who's about to launch into the consciousness and sort of the you know into pop culture and the history of this country and and to have you be someone that now I get to know and and hang out with and I it just it. It really truly does make me feel like a lucky guy. So I can't thank you enough for a mile for that. That's amazing Well that's very nice of you to say I know there's a movie role coming.

"I was blown away by that. Because when you watch it now you realize how effective it is how powerful it is to not see the threat and to have this mystery and the sense of. I think it's over here. I think it's over there. It darts in and out of the frame you get little glimpses of it but to think today about trying to make a movie where you don't really show you don't really see the threat until I don't know if it's the third act or close to the third act is pretty stunning. I agree it's funny that the thing I mean. Obviously the the story is sort of the shark known as Bruce not working is is a famous story and it really did help the movie like you say it reminds me of two things. One is the other things that like. They thought they were GONNA do that. Ended up not being necessary and and actually improving the movie. One day I was. I was with Stephen in his office at his home. And he's got a shelf of all. These leather bound scripts of his movies and I saw jaws. I said you mind. If he's like no no so. I took it out and I opened up opened to a random page and on this page somewhere in the middle of the script there were three lines from hooper and brody and quint that we're all crosstalk of blue pants and this was his script that he had on the set and right next to these three lines that were crossed out that were sort of generic lines was in Penn written brody. We're GONNA need a bigger boat. Wow and it was like the idea that that that that there was a ons an onset decision to say you know what instead of those three. Let's just have this one and it's that an alien reminded me of is in alien the original alien. There's some one of the deleted scenes. Rock Cartwright who plays one of the crew in a terrifying scene where she's being killed and I and it was a cut not a cut seeing a shot that was deleted. That was this very wide angle. Shot down the corridor of her standing there and the alien kind of standing up and it was literally the League. Scary thing you've ever seen in your life like it was like it was not remotely scary and this is like one of the great scary movies in the history. It was like an old man getting out of a sofa.

"Fascinating. This goes to something that I think you agree with. How can you really blow people away and movies? We live in this era of for example And thinking of this because we brought up. We're talking about rod sterling and these amazing endings. We live in an era where it's impossible not to have things spoiled for you implanted the apes. I remembered watching that movie. I was too young to see it in the theater when it came out but I saw later on in a movie theater. And when that ending is revealed with the Statue of Liberty and the sand. I have a visceral connection to help blown away. I was and how everything suddenly made sense and I had the same feeling when I saw citizen Kane for the first time and then I finally it's revealed what Rosebud in Rosebud sled and I'm just Asas like God that that meant so much to me an electrical shopping through my body. I've had the experience. Now of watching things I introduced my son Beckett things and I'll show him in.

There's an episode where Mr Burns says Rosebud sled falls out of the ceiling. Nine is amazing. I'm enraged because Kids Ono. The references and the references are so clever and Hyper knowing and if it's not that it then then things are being spoiled. You know online and everything's being discussed so it's like it doesn't. It doesn't really matter where it comes from. It's like there's almost I don't know what it was what it was like. Or if there was a kind of respect for the story or some kind of sense of like the sanctity of of keeping the ending a secret like all that has gone now and everything is like anything that can be used. It's almost like we're all like monkeys in cages. Like anybody can pick up and throw at the bars. You know we we do and I like that idea of. If someone doesn't like something that someone does you know it has to be a weapon that you have to be you know insidiously bitingly you know clever about online I if something is ruin -able you know who's the first one who can find a way to you know to ruin the ending of it becomes a race to like shock into you know and I think it's the simpsons by the way is the is the least at least that's like genuinely brilliant and hysterically. Funny the idea that it's just sort of you know. Everything is just a grist for the mill. It just feels like there's no respect for kind of trying to keep things You've probably you've probably experienced this. You've probably experienced this but another experience. I've had I want to show my kids a film a great classic film and they're wondering they're weighing whether or not they want to invest two hours in this movie you know versus something else they might WanNa see. 'cause it's you're only allowed to watch stuff on the weekends and so it's it's One of our two shots that we get this weekend and so they'll often say to me. What's this beginning? I'll say it's Lawrence of Arabia this. They'll say well. Let's see the trailer and I'll say now I don't want to show you the trailer they watch trailers and it's not just them. It's their friends. They watch trailers to decide if they're going to see a movie rather than just having the movie unveiled and I try to tell them. You've got a pretty good percentage here. I'm showing you one of the top one hundred movies of grime right but I am stunned. At how many times I go and see a movie and I'm sitting through the trailers and they tell me everything that happens in the movie everything on it's their way. I guess covering their asses and saying what we want them to. You know to be sure. They know that it's got a really cool ending in that. The run earth all the time but I think today they would show you. I think today they would show you the Statue of Liberty in the sand in the trailer for Atlanta VX. I do think that it's it's something that it is. A is a very odd sort of. Maybe it's because when a movie isn't working they do it more often because it's like let's just throw it all on the screen and I. It's it's a really annoying thing that I don't think anyone anyone likes. I think people at the studios. No that it's it's not the smartest way to go and yet still. It seems to be something that you feel like. You've seen the movie when you've seen the trailer I'm as you know there. It's such an art form. Still Weird specific art form when really good trailers cut together. It's amazing how how footage is used for a great trailer. Editor knows how to find something that might frankly not even have much meeting at all in a scene in a movie. You're not might not even be used in the film itself looking at sort of the dailies. But like they know a certain. Look a certain turn like I've seen so many where the trailers totally got me. And then you're watching the movie. You're like you know the trailer was so promising. And you realize like these people who can edit trailers well it is such a buck in genius. You know art form. That's I don't think I quite appreciated the way it should be because it really is an amazing thing when there are a lot of bad ones. We've all seen a lot of bad ones but a really good trailer for a movie is so like the promise of what that is so amazing and then often you go to see the movie. You're like wow man. I wish that I wish the trailer editor had more of a role in the movie Well I'm GonNa Reference a movie that I thought were. The trailer was and it lit and the movie lived up to it and it's a movie That you were done cloverfield and I was in the theater when that trip when I saw that trailer. If you haven't seen the trailer if you just want to refresh your memory go back and look at that trailer that trailer you never see the monster. You never see the creature that I remember being in a theater and that trailer running and people bursting into wild screams and applause and being just delighted and then whatever movie we watched didn't Magin at follow. The trailer couldn't match it and ironically that trailer involved the Statue of Liberty Ironically coincidentally but when we had the idea for that trailer wall we were writing the script and I literally. I remember calling up the head of paramount at the time was Brad Grey and saying I'd like to shoot this trailer and and get it on On transformers if we could and and not even put a title for the movie and have it be something that no one has heard of and in this sort of moment of everyone knowing everything about what's coming finding a way to surprise people you know it was exciting so they actually let us shoot the trailer before we shot the movie we act as a separate piece and then we were cutting together the trailer as we're prepping the movie and then the trailer was out there while we were shooting. It was a very bizarre way to go and it was really the opposite of we have this date. We have to get the movie done. It was sort of like my asking the studio if they wouldn't mind letting us do something that was fairly unheard of and and you know we had the date that the movie was coming out was gives plenty of time but it was a really fun thing in Matt Reeves who directed the movie in and Drew Goddard. Who who wrote it you know and Brian Burke Producer? We were all. They're working on the trailer as if it were. The movie was very strange. Weird little commercial basically but we knew it was going to be in the film so it was a way of using it was. It's a terrifying trailer. It tells you nothing but at the same time tells you everything you need to know and I remember that trailer ending in thinking I've got to. I don't care if there's a child of mine is scheduled to be born that day. I'm seeing rookie. I have to see that movie and this leads me to my next thing that I think I know that you're a such a student of film but this way of trying to keep mystery. You've done a brilliant right your career but insist keeping an air of mystery at a time when people are being given too much information and I remembered on lost you guys could just show Especially early in series. You guys could just show palm trees a bunch of palm trees and you'll hear a noise but that's all you got and that was scarier to me than any effect that cost eight hundred million dollars. Do you know what I mean. I do think the one of my one of my favorite things. I is the use of of sound as what I've always wanted to do as a a movie that took place in a setting. That didn't allow you to see much of what was going on. And we were talking about Cloverfield we actually you know the first script someone read it. Read like a a two hundred million dollar movie. We were talking about how we actually wanted a show very little. And because of the the video camera of course limited Which is helpful. But the idea of what you would hear and the idea of the aftermath of something you know when I first talked to Steven Spielberg when when he and Tom Cruise. We're going to war of the worlds and I remember having a discussion with them. About what what they were thinking about and wanted things. A Stephen was saying how he really wanted to use the sound and very very little of the destruction these sort of. Tripod aliens coming down and I just. I love the idea of using using sound or you know again. I think you think about something like Jurassic Park one of the images that you you think of is the water seeing those you know those concentric circles with the audio of the thump of the T. rex coming and that's as impressive as impactful as any. Cg shot and by the way the amazing about that movie is when you look at that film. I think the number is sixty two visual effect shots in that movie which is nothing compared to the Larry. Two thousand visual effect shots. You might have in a in a sort of current blockbuster. There were sixty two. Cg shots I mean they had the the giant animatronic puppets but those were limited and could do you know but when you think about how sort of judiciously. Those things were used and the impact each shot hat where now so sort of used to getting bludgeoned by so many different shots. And I'm sure I'm as responsible as anyone that bludgeoning but that idea of just like becoming immune to or numb to all that kind of imagery it's early it's engine earlier when you were saying how you're wondering about. How do we surprise people today and with kids knowing all the endings before they even see the movies? You know where I thought you were going was. How do we make people? How do we impress people? How many people feel anything anymore given the fact that we can sort of show them everything and I'm really interested in that like in a way I feel like I just saw this movie over the weekend. It was incredibly sweet. It's called The minority and it's beautiful sweet story about these Korean immigrants in. It's just a really beautifully done movie. That twenty four is putting out and it was. It was more emotionally impactful. You know there was. It was very humble sweet film and it was just like there's something about seeing a movie that was really that really you know had a an emotional punch You know that didn't have any of the stuff that in a way can be considered a crutch or or you know the you think it'll be spectacle and therefore it'll it'll be impressive in a lot of times. It actually does the opposite. You know I know you mentioned Spielberg and I know that you've worked with him. And you guys are friends. I think one of the most famous examples of creating mystery is in jaws which have always heard was an accident bit. He wanted to show that the the shark more but because of technical reasons he couldn't see you don't really see the shark for a long time during the film..

"Didn't feel like we had enough of that. That was the entire re-shoot for the Star Trek movie again. Obviously in in this moment now you know who knows post covert nineteen who knows sort of how and what that will look like and I do think that once once. This lifts think we've revert. I just I just think we do and I think that What what do you think does carry over like in terms of Because you know there's obviously a lot of people who are obviously struggling and it's that's awful and then a lot of people just sort of getting by and doing okay and different people have different versions of struggle. But you know everyone seems to have some version of that. There's an aspect of this. That is making them reexamine things and I just wonder like what people will be taking into. You know postcode life that they've you know they learned. I have a theory that we are going to. I know myself and I think is true of. I think it's true of a lot of people. I so appreciate now. I so appreciate all the people in my life that I work with because I love working with people I've always liked Being in the mix and being around a lot of people and in your work. You're you're collaborating with a lot of really funny. Smart Sharp people very talented people and I am going to try to hang onto that appreciation for as long as I can after. This lifts part of me suspects because I'm a human being a revert with after a six month period And it was just talking about that with with Judd. Appetite about that about two. Suhel like you know people. It will just snap back to whatever bad habits. I don't know where you were living at after When nine eleven occurred I was living in Manhattan into my wife and I would go to restaurants and this is the days after nine eleven and you know the the waitress would come over and we'd say sit down and and the groups of people that were with. I was with if they would the the waiter the manager people would come and sit down with us. We were all saying how are you? Where do you live you okay? It was really beautiful. I remembered it lasting like three weeks and then I saw people you know lifting up their credit card and dropping behind their back as if to say. If you don't catch this by the time it hits the floor missy there's no tip for you like I mean I don't know I hope that will will i. I hope that we'll do better. I think I'm a little not sure not sure that we will. I do think we will probably revert in a lot of ways. I guess like that to be what we take away from this podcast with J. J. is human beings are terrible. Jj's mentally ill. Human beings are bad and My film career has been ruined by. My pulsating varicose vein. You know what it fascinated me and I I love. You've had this insane success in film but you came at TV initially and it really was a love of television. And we've talked about this but we're both lovers of nineteen sixties television and for you. It was the twilight zone. And Yeah I love the twins and It was such I later. Learned much more about Rod Sterling because Rod serling was the guy who would if you're listening right now and you're you're not familiar with that show. It was such a such an iconic show and it was hosted by this brilliant guy named Rod Sterling. He would come out at the top of the show and then introduce you to this tale and you never knew. The rest of television was predictable because nobody died no regular cast member died on a regular episode of TV. Show in this in a twilight zone. Anything could happen. And you'll get an you'd really get invested in it. And as I've looked more and more into Rod Sterling. I've found out he was this fascinating man who I believe was key and coming up to like the ending of planet of the apes is that true or is that he's been legend. He wrote the The the he was one of the writers of the trump Heston feature and That was his ending. The the set of liberty ending was not in the novel was it was originally a French novel. But but he he he was an amazing guy and he actually didn't live far from from here from where we live in and he His his wife. I got to know Carol who sadly passed away a few months ago She was an amazing woman. And I remember reading that Rod Sterling would dictate his scripts as opposed to sitting at a at a typewriter and so one day. I I asked Carol. If she had any of the recordings she said Oh yes as like what you could you. Could you send me what she had? One that was there was digitized and she sent it to me on a a CD and it was like one. Am and I was in my office at home. And I put the CD. And I hit play and it was a recording from a dictaphone and the recording had been bent. It was a belt. Almost in the there was kind of like this like this. This constant like like sounds like this is kinda weird and then I heard this like crackling sound which I recognized immediately as the sound of the the microphone. That was on a plastic cord and had on off switch and he would turn it off when he wanted to think and he would turn it on again to to record so there. Is this an in this crippling sound? And then it's like loud. Hit the button. And there was rod sterling's voice saying interior diner then walks in looks around at and I heard this and he was like stopping the thing. We'll see what happens next. And I got to like here when Rod Sterling would stop and consider the next thing he looks at the waiter him and then every once in a while. Denise remind me to tell Carol and I know it's a great rod serling too.

"Talk to him today. J.j Abrams welcome. We've known each other. I remember exactly the first time I talk to you and you could not have been nicer. It's when I was. I think second time I was hosting the EMMYS. I called you up because I had an idea of jumping through the different shows and I wanted to start on lost. And someone said just called J.J. Abrams and I remembered. Saying I can't just call J.J. Abrams Hannah said Yeah you can It never occurs to me that I might be able to do that. You do though and you can copyright and I well I. It's a whole other story. That's a whole therapy session. But I called you and you not have been nicer and you said yes Yes of course we'd love to do this segment and I'd like to direct it and I I was on cloud nine. That was really fun by the way it was fine was I. It was really fun and then I'm going to be honest with you. I thought I've just been directed by J.J. Abrams. This is going to lead to a lot of film of Vast Tundra. That's what happens when people working in good company. My friend J.J. Abrams killed my film career. And this led. This is where I really WANNA began. I understand you are you are at the top of your game I absolutely adore your work. You understand you've worked with just monumental iconic figures like a Harrison Ford Multiple Times. You know what a movie star looks like. What am I missing is? The Lips are the lips too thin. It's the is isn't it it's the beatty it's the tone of voice. You're being really hard on yourself for the first time ever I. If you really cared about me you'd be honest and you'd say look cone and you have certain qualities that have helped you in the business. It's the lips. It's the vein near Your I. It's the really nasal tone. I'll be going to be honest with you. It's the vein New Year. Yeah what the. What the Hell Are you talking? I'm talking about a very very prominent ivy and I have translucent ir skin and I have a easy calling in vain. Yes yes thank you for minute. I was like what's sonal. Jj I have a prominent vein. Oh my God it's horrific okay. All right take it easy so horrific when you see an old lady at the beach and her and her leg is just a massive vein going down. The side. Like vericose veins varicose vein. I have giant old ladies leg varicose vein running under the my high my right. I've never a never noticed that that's GonNa see well it Po- sates when I'm enraged and you've never ever I. I remember the first time I saw you and I went to one of your tests shows when you were first doing your first series and Tom. Selleck was the test guest on in this test show. It's all a blur to me but yeah okay I know but I just I I will never forget it and it was It was you know this was going to be the new guy. It was taken over like who? Who's WHO's this guy and you came out and even in that tests show. I just remember you. You killed it and it was this thing of getting to see something before anyone else saw it and we got. I don't even know how we got tickets and we got to go and it was really Super Fun and I just feel like Oh my God. This guy is going to be the new guy. And that's that's so sweet that was now. Let's not like twenty almost twenty eight years ago hard to believe or twenty seventy seven years ago. It's amazing that I'm still in my forties and the point is that I remember about those shows. I think we did ten tests shows and they were either great or they were horrific. So I'm glad you saw. I saw good one. You saw a good one because and then The show Was all over the map for the first year or so but We steadied the ship. And we feeling like when you first were going out there doing that. Like in the test shows him before you went on air. It was a mixture of either and this is the most honest answer I can give either complete lack of confidence and a feeling that I'm complete fraud or total now. I'm going to do this because this is God's will kind of confidence and I don't understand it would vacillate between the two of them and I still have an I. I've talked to other people. It's not completely uncommon. I wouldn't say the extremes are that great but I still have moments of. I can't do this. I'm not going to be any good at this. This is terrible idea. This is a mistake and I need to call the person and talk them out of me doing this event. Because I'm not to be it's not gonNA work or aren't they lucky that they get to see I don't understand? I don't understand that brain chemistry. That is weird. I think it's probably I think that they're both necessary. Ingredients to be able to have the kind of audacity to think you're you're going to be able to and you're worthy of entertaining people and the ability to be someone in the audience to have that to be able to jump into the you know the the observer point of view and right which of course means you can't be also the person on and in those moments it's like what the Hell am. I doing the assuming I can be the goes up and does it. Well you're a perfect person to talk about this because you have taken on these responsibilities that I can't even imagine I've done some things that are scary and my life as a performer or a comedian things that have really terrified me things that I look back on the money go. Wow that was that was intense but I think about you having to curate coordinate Be At the very center of these massive productions and I think I would wake up at night and in my case justifiably so I wake up and think this is. How is this happening? How can this happen? I don't know if you ever have moments as J.J. Abrams where you say. I'm directing Harrison Ford in Star Wars. I this was an iconic movie. That helps you know launch my interest in film and now. I'm here doing it. And he has to do what I tell him to sit for. He's or he's fired. That's I mean. Had you have moments where you step outside yourself and Vallejo? I think it happens all the time. I there have been moments where I've I remember. We're shooting on in the First Star Trek movie. We did and there. Was this one scene where there is this group of what were meant to be these really bad scary guys and I sort of cast all these. These ball guys. We had tattoos on their faces. And they you know okay this is GonNa be interesting looking. It'd be kind of cool. And the character of a captain of this ship was coming over Captain Ribao and on that day I realized. Oh God he's also Bald completely bald man. I have all these These guys and I looked at the bad guys and I realized they looked like they were sort of a like a boy band like Cape hops. And then I looked at the at the captain and I just and I broke into this crazy sweat and I and I was like you know so. Are you ready? I'm like NOPE and I. I walked away and I was like I walked behind the set and kind of walked around by myself. Just in this panic like what the fuck am I gonNa do to make any and it was this crazy. You know moment and it's just one of dozens that I can think of where I I was justifiably in a state of kind of near. Oh my God. This is the other shoe drops. This is the moment when not only I but everyone finally realizes that. There's a reason I should be doing this and it was it. It's it's you know those those happen all the time. I'm a big Fan of that movie and I. I love your fix for that. Was To have all the other bulb. Guys where mets caps to offset them. I just thought mets fans yeah and I had to say it took me out of the moment for a second and then you just got right past it you know. It's another thing because I try very hard. I'm very impressed by what you do. And I'm very impressed. I think a lot of it or a piece of it. Is You do it very well but I also don't understand it. I fundamentally don't understand what it is. Everything I do is very immediate. I go out and do it in its immediate and at and then it's there it's good medium bad we fix it if we can but then we move on and I'm thinking of you being involved in these projects that take a year and a half two years and there's so much time to massage to try and figure something out in editing that I would feel that you could get lost. I would just. I don't understand how you don't get completely lost in the process. It's a weird thing. Is You know obviously Doing what you do and having you know worked at SNL and like you know where it is literally you know live and happening in the moment and then things like the simpsons where it's it's you know a year and a half before you see the the animation and you you've you've worked in all sorts of things and obviously going off and doing remotes and things you know you. You Be Eve experienced everything that I've experienced in just slightly different ways and I would say that for me. It's it's never live. Tv It's never happening you real time but the truth is that that its seat of your pants and usually on something whether it's Star Trek or star wars movie. Those are movies where you rarely read a a header for a senior Interior hardware store day. It's always exactly and doesn't exist on the planet are too so it was buying house. Paint kept smart. Need some talking for the bathroom. Which is seen by the way those things don't happen so you're always looking at like. How do we even begin to imagine where this thing would ever take place? How does it look? And and as big as the crew may be as large as the production is It's always the thing that makes it work is that you're working with people who are great. The the the people you can rely on who are as freaked out as you are and have their own moments of. I'm not worthy all the time as well but are looking at you as you're looking at them like we you know. How are we GONNA do this? We're GONNA figure it out together and you know. I don't know what kind of you know cojones so I think I have to be able to say yes to things that were. I'm like there's an audacity. They're I. I feel as maybe mental illness. That's what I wanted to get to is is your mental illness and And and this is really the point. This is more of an intervention. I think the PODCAST. But when you when you think about it what I do relate to and I try to convey this to people say yes first and then figure it out but I used to believe I'm was raised to be very responsible and I was raised to be. You know. Only say yes. If you really know you can do it. And that you're going to be there and you've thought through and all the pivotal moments in my life have been. Hey can you do this thing And I just something in me said yes When I had no idea how I was going to do it. And yes if you sat with a rational team of people and said they want this star wars movie that should take twenty four months to do. They want it in thirteen months and There is one hundred fifty million moving pieces. Let's rationally think this through logical people would say it can't be done but all the good stuff gets done that way. I I think that that's true. And it's it's part of the fun but it's not you know it's not necessarily meant to just be about the fun and you know. I think it depends what the thing is if someone someone says listen you know we you perform his heart surgery. It's like yes it's like there are certain stakes that I think like I need to realize at a certain point. There are things that are important that I got lucky. You know on the first couple of movies I did. The mission impossible three and star trek the first one we did. And so when we for example when we shot the Star Trek Movie. You know the first one. We didn't do any re-shoots at all the only thing we added during the mix. I filmed. There's a kid driving a car in the beginning of the movie. You have young Kirk. I went on the we went on the roof of the parking structure at Fox and I filmed the kid close ups of him driving..

Sona is a natural as far as Mike Technique. So of course you just look at some distance and also because her voice is like in the pattern of what the MIC picks up. Well first of all we should tell people sooner. Doesn't use a Mike Mike Guy? Her voice is so loud that she just heard speaking and everyone can register it. You've been in on television.

"And there is news news. You can use important news stacey. Abrams which she's been so busy campaigning to be vice president of the United States that she forgot to do one big important thing she never actually endorsed Joe Biden. No I saw this headline today. I thought you mean she hadn't done it already know she hadn't done it already. Headline from the Politico Stacey Abrams endorses Biden. The former Georgia gubernatorial candidate becomes the latest potential vice presidential pick to back the presumptive Democratic nominee. What do you mean she hasn't done this before now? Stacey Abrams the former Democratic nominee for governor in Georgia on Tuesday on Tuesday. What you mean. She's doing it this morning. I'm confused. She in towards former vice president. Joe Biden's White House Bid Vice. President Biden is the leader. America needs a leader who restored dignity competence and compassion to the Oval Office while restoring America's moral leader the world. She said in a statement. Distributed by the bipartisan campaign. Another words The statement was prepared and vetted and released in an embargo to this morning. So the headline is out this morning but the practical effect of this is that it didn't happen until this morning. So Abrahams Abe wait. Wait wait I it. Political Abram statement Tuesday represents another high profile endorsement of Biden from one of his perspective. Ice Presents speaks so she's not even the First Kamla Harris mclovin Elizabeth Warren Gretchen. Whitmer all top to become his running mate have similarly thrown their support but among the female the female demographic in it is likely to take the number two spot. Abrahams has most aggressively lobbied for the role publicly promoting yourself for the job and arguing. She would make excellent choice. Biden's campaign has tired of Abrahams antics as a result of this They they want nothing to do with her. They believe show her campaign for Vice. President is getting more exposure than Joe Biden's campaign for President. And they don't like it they want her to cut it out. This is just amazing though. She's been campaigning for vice president for so many said she forgot David at doors. Guy That just. Wow but a dog about putting the cart before the horse. Oh my goodness gracious..

"All right Joe so you had a southern candidate for the presidency but this is a whole different Vail. Hey as we may say in the south. I thought her Her point was interesting that she made about being a political progressive in the south she had to learn to speak progressive. But also moderate also conservative to get anywhere in Georgia politics which as a participant in Georgia politics. Anyone on both sides have to kind of target those audiences but what did you make of what she had to say? We have great people on here every week but Stacey Abrams was if not the most impressive person we've had one of the most I think she captures the shoes with a very sophisticated understanding but with a motivating narrative. And I think that she is going to get a very very long. Look if Joe Biden's nominated I've lessened side into what Bernie Sanders will be looking for. And I think the real field for Biden will be fairly small. I think it will be a woman. I think it will be a woman of color and one of the things about Stacey. Abrams is America. Hasn't seen that much of her. But I think you'd be listening to this. You know that the more they see the more they're gonNA like her. And speaking of Bernie and Biden. A lot has happened since we last spoke. The field is now narrowed down to two going into Michigan. Any predictions there from South Carolina to Super Tuesday. More happened in short time that I've ever seen in a presidential. I wanted to ask you that because it seemed very quick to me but my institutional knowledge is shorter. No I mean we. We're talking about a candidate who it at best come in third place in previous contests winning across the board by more than he was supposed to win and candidates getting out knowing people to judge and Clova chart got out the day before. Super Tuesday didn't even go to the polls to get more data so the media tends to make everything seem extraordinary like everything is breaking news but this was extraordinary. I think this week's primaries are very important particularly Michigan. Sanders signalled his intentions by canceling a Friday rally in Mississippi conceding. The South to Joe Biden Michigan State. He won last time by a very narrow margin over Hillary Clinton. He has to win Michigan. He has to make the case that outside the south his wing of the party is strong enough to take him to Milwaukee and the nomination if he loses in Michigan. It's very hard for people to believe that narrative and one of the things I think we can take away from the earthquake of South Carolina to Super Tuesday is Democrats are looking for getting on with it they want someone that will beat trump. I believe that if Sanders Loses Michigan Democrats will write them off He'll get his twenty-five thirty percent of hardcore supporters. But I think Democrats are itching for this to turn trump and away from inter-party squabbling. So I think Wednesday morning. We're going to have a much better sense of where this races and while all of this is going on we are dealing with a national and potentially global crisis dealing with corona virus putting aside the fact that both Barney and Biden are well into their seventies and hitting a campaign trail shaking hands and kissing babies and visiting multiple populations a day that have potentially been affected by this at the same time. The White House is trying to Tamp down fears say things like we've got it handled. We've kept it limited. The mortality rates are extremely low. Maybe even lower than what's being reported but there's so much left that's unknown and we're starting to get inklings of that and reports of that based on the testing and the test kits available. But what do you make of how this is getting handled? Well I think there's there's a couple levels to this one is. We talked a little bit last week. About how the president has failed leadership test. His job is to make sure that those with the information deliver reliable accurate information to the public so that they can make reasonable judgments. What you don't want is sort of mixed messages and and chaotic messages. But it's clear. The president has put his reelection and his political fortunes ahead of the public health. He has done everything he could to downplay this on Thursday of last week. He told Fox News that he'd beaten it and it was over. We know it's not over. We know they have beaten it. And from a communications point of view it's disastrous to say you've solved the problem and the problem is apparent to anyone who turns on television or opens the newspaper and I think the most the the worst and most damaging thing of that is when the scientists who worked for the government go out and say in a straightforward way. We don't have this contained. We are worried about this. We don't have the test kits available to test people. And then the president and his economic advisor. And his pollster. Go and tell the press that yes we do have a contained so if you are an average American you think I would imagine a lot of people jump to the conclusion of well if if the President says is contained and the scientists say. It's not will boy. This must be really bad. And even the scientists are being are being held on a short leash and that's created not widespread pack but a lot of people doing a lot of things that they probably don't need to do at this point. Finally the most where you can actually see it on a day-to-day basis are the financial markets on the stock market. The president has made a huge deal. About how much everyone has gained on the stock market? That's been wiped out and it's been wiped out for two reasons one is the virus is having a direct impact on the economy and stock market is never looking at what's happening today or what happened yesterday. Always looking ahead and it's always looking to what they predict will happen and so the fundamentals are changing. Despite with Larry cudlow says every day they are changing. All you have to do is go to a mall. Go to win airport and see how easy to get through the TSA WINE. People have changed their habits their travel habits. They're going out to large events and that will have an impact on the economy but the second thing which is within the control of the administration is the markets can handle can price in the change in economic fundamentals. What really causes volatility is when there's uncertainty and they can't figure out where the floors and this is where The particularly the president but also some of his aides have spooked the markets. They see the president is saying everything's Okay and then scientists saying everything's not in there like we don't know and when they don't know their instinct is to sell rather than to buy and that has a psychological effect on people but it also have a direct impact on the president's reelection prospects we we when we talked to Doug Sosnik The couple of weeks ago and he when he was our guest he talked about the by the end of the second quarter people's minds were baked on whether the president was good for the economy or bad for them for the economy. And so we're coming up to July first. The end of the second quarter is not that far away and now we have incredible economic uncertainty. And it's fair to say that Donald trump is an unpopular president but his core supporters at about forty percent. We'll always stay with them. That theory will be tested if we go into a recession if the stock market tumbles even further if this vicious cycle turns on itself and starts really impacting businesses around the country. And without that it's very hard to see Trumping reelected so the bottom line is there is a reason. trump is using bad information and misdirection. Because it's in his interest. It's a very very risky strategy. It's George Bush mission accomplished. He told the country we had this done. And it's not done and it's an issue a lot of political back and forth. The public doesn't care about they don't pay attention to it doesn't move the one way or the other just moves sort of the twitter verse. You can't have a conversation any place in this country with anyone whether they're a stranger or a friend or a family that doesn't start with corona virus you just can't that moves voters you know it's the old adage of Chicago. Mayor Jane Byrne lost the Mayor Oh action because it snowed and she couldn't get the snow off the street fast enough and she went from being a head in the in the Democratic primary to losing. This is something that impacts everyone. Everyone's thinking about everyone's talking about real anxiety and the leadership that they should be getting from the White House. They're not it's not going away. I suspect we'll be talking about this next week and the week after that and the week after that. Yeah I would count myself included with those people who every conversation they have revolves around at least in the beginning corona virus and so much changes each day that by the next time we talk. I'm sure it will be an entirely different storyline but Thanks TO OUR LISTENERS. For joining us this week until then exciting. Thank you for listening to words matter please.

They're not gonNA agree with everything you say but they get excited to know that you're are willing to tell them the truth and what our campaign says. Our playbook says is invest in everyone. Go everywhere and reject the myths that say that if you talk to people of Color White people won't vote for you if you only talk to white people people of Color won't vote for you can have it both you can have both voting that you can talk to people in rural communities and suburban urban communities ended urban communities and you can build a coalition but the campaign has to do all of the work and that's the part that tends to lead to disconnect you. You and I both know there are a lot of great candidates who lose because they run crappy campaigns and those campaigns that are the most efficient are not the ones who select this group of voters voters to win most efficient campaign is the one that wins the that gets the most voters to turn out and my mission is to say that if you're in a red state or pre blue state that more more than likely what you're missing is that you're not talking to the people that you've already written off people that you say are unlikely voters are non voters.
