Louisa Thomas on the Fractured World of Tennis

"Welcome to no challenges remaining I'm Ben Rothenberg, and I'm thrilled to be joined once again on the show this year by Louisa Thomas of the New Yorker Louisa thank you for being back. We were both in DC when we last recorded, I think in February or so in my apartment. Right, early days of the pandemic I know in the early March even like right when things we saw it on horizon. Now I don't even have that apartment. And you're living in DC more full-time now and life has changed a lot and we're currently doing this from the same city different parts of DC. On Zoom. So Louisa thank you for being one of these calls. I. Will Look Forward to most today of my probably seven eight him calls today. So you have this piece of today in the New Yorker which I know you've been working on for a long time it's a very comprehensive peace about basically everything's happened since we last podcast did and also on I will thank you again for this throughout the show. But you also kind enough to come on a roundtable show. We did after the press conference that day which I want having to scrap because I waited like forty eight hours and a lot of things would you describe the peace happened which changed the tennis world typically in that time namely that Adria tour that derailing so I'm curious for you. What you were as you were trying to process tennis, they don't even too much about tennis during this time period. So as you were trying to synthesize in process tennis in everything happening Dennis for the last five months, just describe the challenge that of of trying to figure out where to start what to include, how to how to make it. All make sense as a as a writer writing for missing largely a non tennis audience. I mean I I feel like the piece looks very different than what I had originally envisioned. I mean it's sort of the story of near the pandemic for me, what I what I originally imagined. In my life was going to look like. Back in March is not at all the case you know in in March I thought, Oh, I'm gonNA write a piece about. You know about these different parts of the tennis ecosystem and how they're you know how they exist during the during the pandemic because during the shutdown because I had, you know obviously as sunset, the Tennessee is a very kind of fragmented sporting a lot of ways that the experience of a top player is not at all like the experience the double specialists, which is not at all the experience of a lower ranked player, which is not at all experienced a coach or an empire or Y- that there's A. Great Diversity of experiences. So I was originally going to do this kind of like daisy chain vignette anecdotal piece. Which I did these little portraits of people in my original idea had been to situate each each person at at Indian Wells when they learned that the tournament had been canceled and that was the piece I said about to right and actually that was the piece I originally did right? I mean this piece has gone undergone like many many many pro. You know the interest in that and I was sort of pretty happy with that approach and I think that actually one of the underlying ideas of the piece is that there is this kind of. This there's like I said this fragmentation and that was definitely reflected in that piece as well. But what happened was that like actually things started happening And what you're describing in terms of like US recording podcast and then immediately having to scrap it because you know just things change. So fast that was actually the experience of this piece as well. We were set to we were talking about running at the end of. May. Kind of in anticipation of some news of tennis coming back or not coming back or anything then. And then the protests happened and obviously the gravity of that I mean there was none of that in the piece of point. Obviously. So the gravity of that need us think well, maybe we should you know hold off for a couple of days. This is not like A. Timely piece, it can run whenever. So let's let's wait until. Maybe also think about incorporating some of tennis's response and things like that. And then you know so I kind of that piece ready. Ready to go with that, and then the US Open announced or levers like rumors about the announcement. So I was like. Well, let's hold off for that and then. You know kind of reworking at each at each stage like rewriting it and reworking and talking to more people, and you know doing a little more reporting and also just rethinking more and more about what this like this process is said about tennis and so yeah, I, mean, this piece took on many massive revisions not just because of the quality of writing any piece undergoes a lot of work. But this one I felt like I kept having to scrap it and start again because something would happen and. The thing. That was heartening though was that there was never something that made me I mean there's always something I was learning from things along the way, but there was never something that made me think I'm completely wrong. Just. Completely off, it did become less and less about kind of individual actors and more and more about how tennis kind of sets up people to be individual actors.

Can Tennis Stars Be Trusted to Act Responsibly? (With Reem Abulleil)

"Welcome to no challenges remaining Ben Rothenberg delighted to be joined yet again during this corona virus hiatus from the tour by NPR's middle. East correspondent remodel rim. Thanks for being back on the show once again. Thanks for having me I like this. We're spending a lotta time together. It's honestly I been one of the Nice things about life in core is like spending a lot. We're like a lot more time with friends. I think overall to add at the time, and it's time spent like talking. Even seeing if you count Zuma's seeing friends and you know even those no in person contact and I miss that miss all the normal things like there have been. That side of it's been been nice. I will say yeah, same here. Tennis was affected as last show we did which are also on when we did a show a student to. All about for breaking news reaction to Ingrain Dmitrov tested positive for the coronavirus after playing the Adria tour, and that was believed ten days ago from recording. That was on a Sunday that next Monday, we found out that other players born storage fit your choice gate also tested positive day after that we found out that Novak Djokovic she would spearhead the tour. It was his baby. He was the face of it. He had also tested positive along with his wife. Elaina and then a few days after that Gorny Beneath Mitch, who was the director of the Dr leg of the tour in Croatia, the second stop out of what I think was going to be five originally on the tour. Had also tested positive after previously testing negative twice in his first two tests, so let's start there. be the epilogue to our last episode. What did your reaction to Adria tour change at all? Between the trump positive tests which I think we knew could be the first of many and seeing these other big players in including world number-one Djokovic also test positive, and I will before authority also. We have no idea how many other people stand staff organizers media. Media, Whoever hotel workers, whoever at the around the Asia tour also tested positive? So what are your thoughts for the further fall out of I think as soon as I heard about born Torridge, which was the second that we found out about an we also heard about Gregoire's coach. Novak's physio. Those were like the first four I figured. It's not surprising if almost. Almost everybody else got it because there was just so much close contact between them. The whole time they play doubles together. They party together. They did so like it's. It's not surprising so by the time. Yeah, like after after the second wave of tests, I felt like I expected the pretty much everyone positive so actually I was more surprised at the negatives tests. Tests than the alternative ones, but I think the the biggest thing that stands out obviously for me. In terms of the different thing is that Goran tested negative twice and then tested positive, so that kind of gave us more Obviously, we know that that can happen, but the fact that everyone who was kind of defending the tour. Everyone who is getting? Everyone. Who thinks that oh? If I'm negative? I can go play another tournament. Someone like another term all that stuff that kind of with Goran testing positive. I guess it was A. Kind of a cautionary tale for everybody else guys happened with Goran I think I think it is a really useful real world example honestly. We know about this incubation timely theoretically, but hearing someone like around been a little bit stride into the beginning. He was the one who is announcing it on court. Instead Darwin the tournament was stopping there or when the event was stopping in Chicago. Tournament when the event was. Stop there, saying Hey, don't blame me, I. Don't have coronavirus. It's not you know I didn't do it. Essentially it was. Sort of said somewhat ingest on court at when he was sentenced. Georgia Jovovich, that's the cancellation and see him. Yeah, that's positive. Eventually the show like yes, we know intellectually seeing a real world. Example of someone had not delayed time. Yeah, it does does make realize. Hey, you really. That's why we're doing. The fourteen days stay inside where people are doing that. When they possibly exposed or other things to make sure they don't have it incubating and yeah. THAT GETS TO DONALD team a start with him. I think there's. Say That team. The team comes up from. Adria tour and goes to play the UPS. Just the ultimate showdown event held the more Academy in France. And he gets tested upon arriving. There tested multiple times there from what he was saying in. He makes a joke that he's the interviews. The his most negative guy on tour which some people thought was in poor taste. Honestly have demonstra problem with understood it. If you've been had blood drawn six times in a week if you're allowed to make a joke about it. It, but at the same time I don't know. He's playing and I wish he was not playing. I. Just don't think it's worth the risk for having candidate playing tennis. If I was holding tennis admit that had previously booked dominic team I would say sorry, but we're gonNA. Cancel your appearance of the tournament. We don't want anyone who's been clearly exposed to the. gorgias stick corona virus cauldron. That was Adria tour to come here I. think that just negative within the window is not enough to show that you're not possibly caring and or contagious we we've done that now. Seeing team, go from the the ups to pull out of that to go to various other events and he. He's scheduled to play Austria an accident going to go play in Germany after that I. it just seems like he's just trying his. He's really working overtime. Trying to be patient zero as possible.

"It. It sounds like a really easy job and I I love to save. Pinch me I get paid to repair living. but it's like I said earlier it can be incredibly tedious and monotonous. And and Almost meditative at times, and and it's certainly not easy. No it's not. And I do it, too. It's hard work. Yeah, it is. And it does. Well and of course, basically as the writer in residence, I was editing. I was taking up to three thousand words at a time. And I would go over that with a fine tooth comb, and then I would meet with people for an hour. and I met with some seventy individuals over the course of my time there. And there's a song from my fair lady that kept running through my head, which is words, words words I'm so sick of where it's. I get words all day through for from him then from us. Is that all you can do it? It's just the perfect editing. All what it means in the context of musical, but it's the perfect editor song. It's the perfect editor saw. It really is I unfortunately in these past years that I've been working as an editor I actually stepped away from writing for a little while and I don't read as much as I like to my to be read. Pile has gone completely nuts because I keep. Buying Books and When you read all day at the end of the day you WanNa. Do almost anything else. Yeah. It's occupational hazard I think. Her the other thing about editor I should. May Have heard this having worked in journalism, but my publisher. Wavering review put it in one of his columns. As a joke, editor is actually an acronym. It stands for expensive dummy in the other room. Yeah? I think he meant it as a joke, but. Oh Lakers to hope he didn't fiery so couldn't have been too bad. So how how is the reception been to jump ship Pope if you people enjoying it. Yeah. It's been really great and I've had some. Surprising feedback in fact, just last night I got a message from My aunty and she said. Adriaan I don't usually read science fiction, but you had me right till the end and I can't wait for the next one. So, it's lovely to hear things like that especially when you're. You know neck deep in the sequel and you're doubting everything. Yeah, but that's that sort of the middle part of the book. When you just you're not sure. I had something like that for my father wants when my I I guess my first novel. And he actually he did read this kind of stuff some and he read it, and he actually said to me. When did you learn so much about human nature? Oh well, that's nice. That's actually a really good compliment. It was, too. So. You mentioned that you are working on the sequel. Jumped ship dissonance. And the final book, which is also getting a little bit, too scribbles just to try to sort everything. is dumped ship freedom, and that will create the trilogy. Is There A. Set Release dates for these or Amorphous yet. The. Dumpster business was initially set to launch at one words Clyde on twenty twenty, but twenty twenty isn't going so well and I missed my deadline anyway, so we're shooting for twenty twenty one. I was hoping to launch a book. Birds collide as well so yeah. It. It's GonNa. Be a fun one. I. Wanted to. Ask You as well about the the woodworking, because it's interesting that creative people are often creative and more than one way. You mentioned the photography what you focused on. Focused on for a while. So, where did the woodworking side of things come in? Now. That's a fun one, because yes, creative people do often have a lot of things that they wanna try at least and and a lot of. creatives will have many talents. But I struggled for a long time of wanting to learn how the car and just feeling like I should just get with button charing, keep rating, 'cause. That was the focus that was my hobby. I had work parenting in the idea. For the few years ago, actually. When I backed off from the writing and the reading, and I was doing more and more everything I needed something else. That took me away from the screen in the words and allowed me to work with my hands. So I took a class at Lee Valley, and then another one. A few years later at black forest would company. And I just absolutely fell in love. With carping has a certain soul to it like nothing else I've ever met, and I've always been a big nature, Girl and love being in the trees, so it doesn't surprise me any that that I'd like to cardboard. And I I just kind of gave myself permission to go ahead and play and how some fun. And it's really taken off for me. It's it's. To me, it's part of my soul survival kit that makes nation. What sorts of things do you carve? I've tried all kinds need things. I carve a lot of. What's known as Cottonwood Bark with the thick bark that grows on balsam poplar trees. And it's very soft and forgiving. It's really easy for beginners to play with and has a beautiful grain. it's also known for the little ferry houses. No Carta, the bark. Cottonwood Bark. And it's Carved, Tino the faces. The like old mammoth feared mustache would spirits. One of my favorites is a whale tail car carpet I wear pendant. And one of my favorite favorite subjects car is Celtic nuts and leaves. To, it's all a form of creating something from not exactly nothing, but shaping materials into something else which I think is A. As, you might guess from the fact. This podcast is called. The world shapers is actually metaphor that I like that we don't really create things from nothing, but we take the material that we have inside us and we, we shape it into stories and into new creation so. wood-carving is very much a good metaphor for that. It's funny that you would put it that way. Because I actually noticed one day as editor Inuit carver. It's all about taking things way. That's true. That's true. I actually am a little jealous of sculptors, because they add the clay until it's right. Whereas Wood carver of stone. CARVER has to remove material until it's right. That's Michelangelo's famous thing. Verb seats attributed to him that. How.

"Lots of comments and suggestions and track changes so the I could go through and approve. Accept or reject. Because like I? Tell my clients. It's your story and you should always have the final say so I'm I was really happy to see that I got a chance to look through the suggested changes, and and give my own feedback on that and make changes I wanted. or you know? Deny the changes that I didn't think were appropriate, so, but that's pretty important. I know there's been other are. Canadian authors that have had the fought for things fight for things like. Canadian spelling and things like that. Yeah. That's always a tough one for me. Because my publishers in the US but I have my own little publishing company where I adhere to Canadian spelling and I'm constantly having to do a check on on spelling fixture either. Used it for the American publisher I'm using. Stuff I'm doing myself or the Katie publishers I work for. So half the time I'm not sure so. And then I was just editing editing. Somebody Else's manuscript and they wanted UK. Spelling, which is not quite the same. Again but There are some software tools to help you with stuff like that so and I. Did want to ask you about editing since we're talking about it. How did you get into freelance editing? Being a journalist and a freelance journalist for many years, and then a freelance copywriter for many years. I was always really interested into. Getting into editing as well for fiction, because that's my first, low and For a long time I simply didn't feel qualified. I wanted to make sure that I really did no my stuff. actually took some courses and brushed up on my. In Grammar and a whole bunch of things. Before a home, Anglo a really wanted to be sure that if I was asking people to pay me for my time that they were GonNa get a good return on investment.

"I tend to write in in spurts so I'll I'll do an hour. Take break. another hour. Take a break, but I also tend to. Take a whole day and just focus on the novel and not try to look at other jobs like the editing job, so they may be on that day or that at that time so I tried to just let the book fill my head for that day, and then I may be set aside and take a few days to do all the other lifestyle. So it's it's kind of. A work in spurts. And and then I take. Your fast writer or a slow writer? Pretty Darn fast fat well while I was in between the journalism years, and the getting the novel published in becoming a relent senator. I ran my own relents copywriting business. So you learn just like with the journalism, you learn to write fast. You learn to get words down on the page and you learn to meet deadlines. On which I'm very sad to say. I missed the deadline with the sequel to Thompson put. Well deadlines I. Always Remember. I think it was Douglas Adams. WHO said that I love deadlines? I love the whooshing sound. They make as they go by. That's an awesome. So once you have a first draft. what should revision process look like are? Do you do like a rolling revision in? It's all polished when you get to the end of that draft or do you go back to the beginning and do it all from the beginning. How how does that work for you? And what sorts of things do you find yourself working on in the in the revision passes. With the MESSI rough first draft I tried to just keep plowing forward to though sometimes it is important to step back and look which doing, but it try to keep pushing forward until I get to the end. Especially since I've become an editor over the past five years. I find it very difficult to take the editor hat off and just right. So it's some of the biggest discipline I've ever had to have was is now to be able to just say. Stop worrying about. The editing stopped trying to make it perfect right now. It's just a for its trap. Get to the end. and. Then once that I draft is done as you. You hasn't come back to the beginning. And then I get to put my other hat on and I feel much more confident and And equipped better equipped to do a job. When I was GONNA, ask about the editing. Have you found that editing it like you found that editing? Other people's work helps you to look at your own critically I I certainly find them. It definitely does. And have really enjoyed it it. It can't be incredibly monotonous. And, of course, anyone can edit for themselves to a certain degree. but it. I know for myself. Even asking editor I need other people's eyes on the work when it's your model and in your heads just too far in it. You often can't. See It from the same perspective as someone else can for you. So. What do you do when you get to that point? Two Beta readers, or did you? Bring in an external. Are How do you like to? Critique a Daddy I've got a couple of one full. Beta readers and A and A. author friends who are always happy to exchange manuscripts so it then I can help them without them feeling like they should be paying me because that's my job as well. and they get to help me and we just get to do it. His friends, which is wonderful, and very talented people that I call friends I'm incredibly blessed in that way. and then of course with. The particular work in Progress I'm. My? Publisher is waiting for that and and they will do wonderful editing job for me, they're. What sorts of things do you find yourself having to work on both revision and then when somebody else looks at it? Are there sort of consistent things that you find? YOU HAVE TO SPRUCE UP? Insistent via On all levels of editing, there are things that. every author has the like tips I guess. Of. Bad Habits one of mine. Is The word vary? So I will actually go and DO A. Can Destroy. Of that one, there's a few others on my list that are pretty bad. That one is always number one actually thought from as you said the word ferry like the word fairy like this ferry that flies around and gives you words or something. Of the Word Berry. Berry would be a very good thing. Put Your manuscript under your pillow in the word, fairy comes and fixes it all up and then. You don't have. Yeah. Right that story. Yeah, we need some word ferries. Yet no, it's the Word Very C. E.. R. Y. that one gets me Apparently, it's my way of. Trying to. It's often I mark them and I'll go through and lifetime's. You can just take him right out. It's fine, but sometimes it's because I simply have not taken the time to do good word choice. Thinking rate to to really think through and get the right word instead of one that Needs Sword Berry in front of it. Yeah and that's something as As writer in residence that's actually which I just finished at the CESKA in public library. I found myself pointing out to other people you know. Don't use a weak verb with a modifier if you can find a strong verb that SORTA THINK Or a week now with modifier. The other one I'm often catching other people's work, which I now catch as I'm writing is instead of saying what something is not saying what it is. So, instead of saying, that's not bad sates good. And if those words don't seem to cut it, then, you're not choosing the right words. The other one that I catch myself and I do the search and replace, but I often do a search for a passive voice like was and had and things like that and see if there's some way to to turn that one around as well, and that's another one. I often point out to people. It just makes the writing so much more powerful. We don't realize. I guess it's Kinda like that quote that good. Easy reading is really hard writing. So. When you got to your editor publisher with tikey books. What was the editing process like at? That side of things for you. How do they approach editing? was pleased to see that they. They approach their editing very much same.

Nebula Interstellar Rockstar, which was the original title of this book this is. Is a revised edition of a book that came out a few years ago. It was short listed for a Manitoba Young. Reader's choice award and it was named to the our choice list of the Canadian Children's book. Centre and I think my favorite review of it actually came from a young reader who captured it pretty well. I think he said that to. This book is like Star Wars Plus Drugs Plus rock and roll awesome set in the far future, and that's pretty much. It as you might tell from the title. It's a lot of fun. It's out now in A. Book and A kindle sorry Amazon version of the paperback. With. A more generally released paperback version yet to come. And sit is book one and there was a second book called double trouble, which I'm working on right now. other things I have coming up the mass market release of master of the world, which is a book, two of my world shaper series. Comes out in August from Daw Books and then in September book three, the Moon World will come out as I often say that's the one that can be summed up as werewolves and Vampires and peasants. Oh, my. The world shape or series, of course, which I mentioned many times on here takes place in a labyrinth of shaped worlds. The people who shape those worlds live inside them. They're sort of like authors living inside their own books, and my protagonist who's been chased out of her own shaped world by the adversary is trying to go from world to world with her companion Carl Yachts, or her name is Shana Keys and together the knowledge of the making of those worlds, the shaping of those worlds to take to agreer the mysterious woman at the center of the Labyrinth order to save all of these worlds from. Eventually, being destroyed by the adversary. So the book one was set in the version of our world. It was called world. Shaper book to which is the one coming out in mass market paperback in August Master? The world is set in a Jules Verne like world and book three as I just said, is that a world with werewolves and vampires peasants so? Look for those and also look for from the street to the stars which just came out. The other project of course closely connected to this podcast is shapers of worlds. That's the anthropology of short stories by authors who were guests on the podcast. During the first year there are original stories and reprints kind of mixture and big names involved from John Sculley to David Brin to. Dr Charles E. We got Joe Haldeman. Tanya huff. Jewish Anita is a wonderful collection of short fiction and still waiting on a couple of stories to come in, but then I'll be putting that together. Hope to have it out I. Hope for Aug it might be a little later. Maybe this fall, but it's definitely coming. All Right? That's the introductory material out of the way except to say that this podcast is part of the CISCO PODCAST network. Now. Let's get to this episode's guest Adria lay craft. Pre Nights editor fiction author. End would artisan. Adria craft earned honors in journalism and ninety two, and has always worked with words and visual arts. She Co edited the urban. Green Man Anthology in two thousand thirteen, which was nominated for an Aurora award and launched her debut novel, jumped ship hope which will be talking about as an example of her creative process in twenty nineteen. Look for her short stories in various magazines and anthologies both online and in print, Adrian is grateful member of Calgary's imaginative fiction writers association if one I think I'm kind of. Honorary member maybe. The proud survivor of the Odyssey writer's workshop and you can find out more about her online. We'll talk about where you can connect with her soon. She also has youtube channels. Carving the Cottonwood and girl gone bag abondoned, which says soon to be renamed girl gone to ground, so maybe that's already happened I. Don't know Adria welcome to the world shapers. Thank you. It's wonderful to be here now. I say I'm kind of an. I feel like I'm kind of an honorary member. The F. Word because we've known each other for a long time through conventions in Calgary and. So, although I've never really been a member of the organization, I've been part of the writers at the Improv that that group does every year for many many years now. That is so much fun writers at the Improv. I've done it a couple of times as a program. In fact, I did it. When I was writing residents that through of public, library, and I did it again this year at the Saskatoon Public Library except. Did. Show it was just before everything closed down and I think people were little, if he. And I had all I had was an English as a second language class, and none of them wanted to compete so what I did was I just took? Words from them, because for those I guess I should explain registered the Improv is like any Improv. You get worse from the audience and you write a story using those words. I wrote a story on the words that they gave me so that was kind of fun for me. It wasn't quite the usual kind of a process though it. Enough about me actually here to talk about you, so we have known each other long time, and you've been a writer all that time that I've known you, so let's take you back into the mists of time as I like to say, how did you get interested? Well first of all in science fiction fantasy, and ended writing, which which came first, or how do those two things come together for you? I I have definitely been a reader and a fan of science, fiction and fantasy. Since before I could even read According to my mom I demanded to be taught how to read before kindergarten. because I was tired of waiting for people to have time to read to me. So. I I've always been a reader I read Laura the rings at age eight for the first time and I reread it several times and launched that launched me into reading Heinlein and stuff that I. Hadn't even. Thought it was old, enough or yet, but always always been a very avid reader, and then somewhere along the way when I realized I had to have a job in the big wide world. I realized that. That writing the books that I love so much. Could be a thing. Well! Did you studied well first of all? You grew up in Calgary. I presume, or is that correct? Or they're number two. So when you went to When you were in school, did you start writing stories and sharing them with your friends and that sort of thing? Yeah and I was I was attempting to write novels at that point I I am. I was still. Still Uncertain about short fiction, but I was always a book lover, and I I was attempting to rate at.

"Life can be Having said all that joke. Mitch House Apologize I thought his apology was certainly A. More than adequate. I think he's a smart guy i. also think is someone who wants to be liked. This is not a guy who relishes the role of a villain, and you'd hope damage control will will be underway when he's healthy i. mean again I think one of the ironies I wrote about this I mean one of the ironies of all. This is some athletes, some people. Some celebrities just don't give a show. Even tennis and there are some players Lleyton Hewitt didn't give a shit and I. Just want to win matches. If you don't like me, that's tough. Jovovich is the opposite, I mean. Here's a guy who craves adulation and that. Only seems to have added to the layers of the story that he's also so self sabotaging at times, so you hope that he will learn from this. You hope he can get his name back, but right now as as Mary Carillo said. Has hasn't won. A match has lost a match this year, but man is. He made a lot of unforced errors in the during this ten data so They're happier topics. We could talk about Jamie. We have matches going on a Charleston actually. I got a text last night from. A coach in one of the players. They're saying if you if you're done bitching about Jovic. Maybe you could actually talk about some real tennis which. the the US Open again remains it only to be some bumps in the road and again we're GONNA have to drink every time we hear the phrase fluid, situation or case by case basis, but the US Open is still on the calendar. There will be a wheelchair event. I just got a email telling me. The Tennis Hall of fame is Back Open. I have to say that I've come back to Manhattan and things are opening up here, so It's not all doom and gloom, but. As the CLICHE goes we. We ain't out of the woods yet and boy. Did we get a Did. We get a reality check about the nature of this virus In the Balkans over the over the last two weekends Jamie for sure I know the interesting to see I. Mean of course there were a handful of top players along with joke rich. They're playing and. Zero of Corey. have have also tested positive so I think it will be interesting to see what players you know we've talked about this. Players decide to come play the US. Open versus the French Open, especially given that the the recovery time for this luxury. It's based on. You know how serious how your body Reacts Weight Your Age, your health, so many different things so we of course hope that everyone has a speedy recovery, but this could. Could Affect Training. This could affect how they're preparing for the US Open. If it was something they were considering to do so I'll be interested to see how this affects. The US Open and the pool of players who ultimately end up in the drawer larvae. I think that's a really important. I was talking to PAT mcenery yesterday. Who you know? He's I think I'm violating any confidences. He's been pretty open about this. WHO's had Who Basically test positive I think he just negative for the antibodies, but tested positive, but he he he's. He's talked about this and has done some some videos and he said you know he's. Feeling better thankfully, but even now he's still feels text when when he talks for a long period of time, or it's almost like you've got on a long run when he does his podcast, so there are some lingering effects months later, and we haven't really spoken about this, but you know. Grigor Dmitrov was a semi-finalist last year beat Roger Federer Victor Trade Skis at the end of his career, but has always been a dangerous player. Boorda storage would probably be seated. Don AVEC would be seated and Novak Djokovic as World Number One player? So you know if nothing else we're. We're talking about five players who? Could make materially significant players who, in late June or are positive for for Covid so this may also obviously have some real impact on on the US Open just in terms of the draw on in terms of tennis results so. It has been a It's it's. It's been a busy week tennis a week ago, we were speaking with guarded happiness I would say widsom ambivalence, but with with guarded enthusiasm about. The twenty twenty us open and a week later. This has not been our happiest podcast. Jamie No it has not, but Hopefully we're turning the corner here and hopefully there'll be some some brighter days ahead as you said I think there'll be a lot of. Asterix sin sort of different different things that will have to be fluid on of course like you see with the PGA tour now more. People as they've started that have tested positive in people withdrawing here in there, so as these and start to pop up in the US in anticipation of the US Open I think. The US, Ya and players in general are going to have to be pretty flexible and and really take everything. Is that I have to say? I feel for all. All these players who have been out of work for all this time. You know just in this limbo. We've talked about of you. Don't know what you're training for. When things are GonNa Return, and now it's a really tough position to be in as an athlete. Talk about the Orlando Bubble for the NBA and Major League Baseball finalizing a plan there and. As an athlete, especially as an individual athlete when the onus is really on you to make the decision..

We're going to talk to Donald Dell longtime agent. He had some very interesting thoughts about how to merge the ATP and the WPA we were GonNA talk about. The plan for the US Open and tennis getting back in there some events this week. We were talking about the Patrick. marauded lose event, and the Charleston ended in of course everything blew up metaphorically and I. Guess You could say in a sense literally with news from from the Balkans this weekend which we probably timestamped us, we are speaking on. What is today Wednesday morning the right as cracked. So we are seventy two hours into this Kindly, call it a narrative I spoken a lot about this. I've written about this I will say before we can talk. Specifics I'm very surprised at the stem, and this is really world news. I mean I was getting calls. From Aljazeera the BBC and then I just Mary. Carillo is on MSNBC Today. Mean is really become much more than tennis story. For better worse I would argue worse, but this really has been. The kind of story had ripples beyond the the sport and beyond sports period I think a lot of people are. Sort of trying to figure out how we eat back to normal I think we're trying to see I think we're starting to see some real. Sort of disparities in countries, and even here in the United States with how this is not only being managed, and not only with the data says, but just in terms of philosophy, so I think this is the story of really found its way into into a much broader story, and this has become absolutely world news. I mean this is as big as a ten stories we've had since there's been a match and I guess what why don't we just start there? I, mean Jamie. Let's start with. Top Line Impressions of the Adria Tour Novak Djokovic in the last seventy two hours. Yeah you're right to say that tennis exhibitions don't normally get this much press. I think it's always a funny thing with antennas. When people you know who aren't as familiar with the sport, they see results from from an Axa, whether it's early in the year late in the year, and you know somebody, beat, someone, and most people just sort of shrug it off, but it's as you said really interesting to see how much this has really gone across the world. World and everyone is talking about it and rightfully, so because this is a big issue in I think it was from the Gecko, when we started to see the photos and the videos of everything that was happening between the hugging and everything that was happening on the court, and then of course everything that was happening all off the court. All of those images in those photos are really going to be the mark of this event of this tournament. And jovovich whether or not he deserves all of the blame or not will also be the face of this issue for a long time coming he is the organizer of this event of course, and also the oldest in terms of the players that was there and for me. That was something that you know. He really needed to use his his advantage, and the the younger players thereof and born Cora and others even Dmitrov for what it's worth. You know are are younger than him. They look up to him and for him to invite these players to come to this tournament in for him to organize this in the way that he did end to have the results that we had is just It's not great, and I wish that the best tennis player you know the number one in the world right now had thought a little bit more about how he was exposing all these people. It's unsafe conditions and took a little bit more time to think about how what the results and the repercussions of this could have been. Yeah I mean I think no-one covered themselves in glory. I mean there's already been a lot of finger. Pointing joke of its father have having moved on from from fettered. Baby is now pointing fingers at Dmitrov as the culprit, I mean this is just ugly stuff I. Mean I think we ought to pause here in and say we do hope everyone makes. A speedy and easy recovery as as nick, curious I wrote. Nick curious turned into the the Wiseman of tennis Munich. curios thoughts on all of this have been. A lot more reasonable and responsible than anyone else's and the nick curious very rightly says this virus is not a joke, so. Go further. Let's be clear. We hope everybody makes a a quick recovery from virus that we know you know. Six figures over is can be fatal. having said all that I think I mean it's sort of interesting in the grand scheme of things, people who are casual fans or not even sports fans at all. This is hubris recklessness, and here's this athlete who somehow has been living in. Sick enough bubble so that he doesn't realize it. You can pass this on other people and hey. Viruses are really contagious and things like masks really work I think in tennis circles they're also is this added layer of all of this joke of its context. Pat mcelroy saw scented to Chris Clarry that look. Let's be honest, fettered doll Serena a doing things like this very. Very Carrillo as the MSNBC today was very outspoken about Jovic in particular. This is you know I? I think. She said that the guy has lost a match, but he's made error after error after error in this pandemic and I think there is a joke of its context at least in tennis circles where this is the guy who has thumbed his nose at science. This is someone. Just made a statement about what he thinks about vaccinations, he's made his statements about whatever the positive energy affecting water quality. He's already been trouble in Spain for flouting. Social distancing so. And this is remember to someone who was not supportive of the US Open. Because he thought some of the procedures.

That's been kind of one of the murky areas across the board has an even the the official government regulations? It's been unclear whether any of them are actually, and which of them are written into law, which of them are punishable by fines, all police measures, which are just to sort of polite requests from our government that we act in the spirit of the greater good will. I think it's been pretty well proven that. Tennis players potentially can't be trusted to be made vague by the greater goods so maybe. Maybe penalties need to be in place for for those that do. Commit transgressions. I do feel that the toys are very different story because they're all gonna be proper measures in place, they are going to have to Reach the the sanctions that re put into place the provisions that are required to to meet toy level, and you can imagine now more than ever just how? Extreme those night, Welby, and when we were listening to the US Open plans, they're talking about their bubbles. They were talking about their social distancing, and and if their ability to keep people apart by the sheer size of the place, but they also did as you say that they talked about. People needing to take some responsibility because they were not, they were going to allow those houses to be rented. They were going to. Not. Insist on everybody staying in just this kind of quarantine likes circle around the site.

What sort of pathetic miniscule thing happened last year that when I kind of remember? I remember campaigning fool nominating. The. The. Hoffman Cup. But I don't think that one is you remember. Nominated, the women's French Open Semifinal, oh, yeah, being on the Simone Mature Court at about. The morning. Yeah, they were great problems when I. Miss I miss. Literally every day. I'm thinking. You know I. Go to bed thinking. Of Ten. And then the next day. Something else happens. Please tennis get. Actually. I should rephrase that because it's always the men men's tennis. Get Your Act together for goodness sake. Moments, tennis coming up tomorrow Matt. The Battle of the Brits. yeah starts tomorrow at the national, tennis center in Hampton. That's why et were speaking to me listening to. Think great in the goods. If British tennis earlier on today it's Tuesday through Sunday singles and doubles starts at one pm with Jamie Murray. Ski Against Brady Cam Norian doubles than its three singles matches, and finally a doubles match the notable singles tomorrow probably Andy Murray Slam Brady full much of the day you got caught, Edmund, against James Wooed. Donovan's against j Clarke and then Murray Versus Brady Colette Mond. Very is Andy Murray they've been joining a group together is a much. That'll happen on Wednesday. That's probably the pick. If the grapes as much grief stage might she said it's an eight nine singles draw, and a six team doubles drew all of them British and all of the men. There is an equivalent. Women's Tournament being organized. Details and playfield of still. Yet to be announced I believe, but it's certainly although just as this one the. Oh, are involved in the organization and assisting with it. It's it's Jamie Murray bled. Venture and the women's event is a is an entirely separate. Ventured that the OT resisting with so I'm really glad that that women's equivalent exists and is going to exist. I think it's a shame. That this men's event came out with all the all the fanfare and. As is so often the case it kind of a bit like the women's was was off or On. But I'm I'm interested in it. I'm going to watch it I'm definitely interested to see what kind of shape Andy Murray's in where he hasn't played since November in that Davis Cup match that he limped through in the against Talim Greek spor of the Netherlands one. Point that well. Look up earlier. where that name when I was trying to remember tennis, as last week's floor was on the tip of my tongue, but I couldn't. Nine, so I had to look it up. But but I've always thought that the concept of kind of the other British players and actually up and coming British players having to play against certainly Andy Murray, when he was in his absolute prime, would have actually been a cool thing to see kind of. Showing those players what it takes, the kind of level got to get to to get to the top of a see Mary is. Using social media to massively play down his chances at the moment talk. About how much she's struggling to move interested in whether that's all a bit of a bit of a Ruse I. Think kind of is and he's. He's actually going to be well up for it and is I'm kind of expecting him to win to be honest. But yeah, it is going to interesting to see what what shape he is in because he was planning to come back in. Miami was a before the. Before the lockdown to kind of test out the hip, an.

"adria" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast

"I will proceed to follow the so fascinating guidelines advised by our doctors as an added precaution, my team and I will continue with regular testing. Everyone who's tested positive, speedy recovery. Stay safe. Now! It doesn't change the fact that his playing the event was flipping stupid and it always was flipping streep. He didn't have to have that much. Hindsight's or judgment eight thing to realize that it was it was at best and extremely naive thing today, but that. That strikes closest to the right tone. If any statement I've seen so far is going to be very very interesting. What we hear from Novak Djokovic provided. We d hit from him tomorrow evening. David his voice also or. Dave Lewis already a raised the prospect of an additional podcast or evening to in today's. Snuck that in where we were prepping for this one see did. Training for women. Is going to be very interesting. I mean I. personally want him to appear in his back garden on a white picnic table with some ready with the Radi crap. TABLECLOTH! And some papers in front of him with his leaves rolled up and explain that he was just testing his eyesight the whole time. And if you don't know what Catherine's refund to. Just, read Simon. Briggs is piece which has an intro about the parallels to Dominic Cummings the. British Prime Minister Eight. Who? Went through that. I still say British Prime Minister then and I wasn't going to correct. They went through that same process or similar on a few weeks ago. I think there's a lot at stake here office I. Mean obviously there is, but even even from here. The fact that Djokovic has said nothing in the last twenty four hours bothers me immensely. He is the head of the play council. He is the world number one. He's the from what I understand the organizer of this tour at least the figurehead. The inspiration behind it. and. He is brought all of these people together. They have. Flagrantly disregarded all social distancing advice and On, the understanding that everything will be fine and it isn't fine. So. You've got some explaining to do right there. And to have Radio Science for twenty four hours is is really disturbing to me now I hope that. When he does speak. And I suspect to about it'd be more to his fans than the media I think. Is what I would imagine, but we'll say I just hope he gets this right and really understands the gravity of the situation and that he he needs to send a message that. That this was the wrong thing to be doing. And Goodness me. Let's hope Greco. Dimitrov gets better that that born a chart. She's okay that all of these people make a full recovery and that we don't see a spike of cases all the way through the region. All the people that were there that don't have the access to private jets to get them home and and. A high priority with testing. Do all the people that were in that nightclub with the mood. The people that came to event the people that were that kids day. What's their access to testing like? I can't stop thinking about the photographs that we've seen of Chara. And Dimitrov surrounded by kids in that is going to be a defining image, a frozen image of time of tennis, behaving irresponsibly during pandemic and goodness knows. Let's let's hope that no one knows photos. Is infected, but you know. It's reasonable to assume that other people will be who were in the crowd at this event, or as you said in those nightclubs in those kids days because we know how contagious viruses and whenever we see whenever we see the pictures of the Cheltenham Festival, many many thousands of people crammed together in was it march and this whole taunting it gives you a shudder every single time you see that, and you realize the the way that the virus then took off in in Britain and the numbers. What have we got sixty thousand? Expected to to be sort of died if you cancel the cat home deaths as well. Now know that that's not a single source. But it was. It was a symbol really of the country just not taking it seriously. At the time and God, forbid. That has happened that something. Tragic happens here and That is the image that we will say and I think. You. Know Char Action Demonstra to May. Feel like the kind of. Well, meaning Kate at school gets cold up with the wrong crowd mixing doing something. They should know they shouldn't be doing. But at the same time they should know better. They should thought. They spent doesn't feel right, but there's a there's a responsibility with someone and it's. It feels like mainly. Jackovich's the organizer of this event and anyone who helped him organize it. that. This was not the right thing to be doing and you know. Frankly it's kind of. Kind of extinction of what Jackovitch was talking about on his instagram lives. It's it's two fingers up at science, and it's and it sang. I'm above this and I'm invincible. I'm a tennis player. I'm I'm strong. I'm healthy. Let's let show that we've that. We've beaten this virus and. They hadn't and you know other people are adjusting their lives and. Changing the way that living and they're going about doing this and I'm sorry, but it. It leaves such bad taste. The now it's endangering lives and I mean we can't stress the seriousness of this really. By the buying that it's huge relevant is actually quite a lot of. Evidence data suggesting that athletes top level athletes are she more prone to contracting not just corona virus, but other similar viruses as well due to the way that the bodies function, but. Not The joke which is off about? Making water pure by. Dancing around it needs debunking but. There's just one bit of debunking. That can be done. And it's very funny, isn't it? When it's just somebody? When it's just some somebody having slightly. Slightly, but wacky views, but you can sort of say each of the rain, not doing anyone any harm well doing harm. Now it's doing harm and science is not just another opinion you know. When we were watching the coverage a week ago, and when we were talking about even last week's podcast I often find myself. Try trying to self assess whether we and not just we but. The media is being too harsh or Novak Djokovic generally, because he comes in for a lot of stick and we we, we are often criticized for forgiving him stickle. The British meteorologist. People feel that some that we got in front and when I. Self assess I. Always try to just get get the bow, just buffet. Just get the balance right and there is no way around this no way around it. There's no way of she'll get coat in this and like I. Hope he his able to give answers, tomorrow or or A. A A statement that can. In the same way as Alexander's very has just at least make you realize that he's understood the seriousness of it all there was there was also just just to say there was There was a match that I was watching last week from the area tour and your sports got the rights. To it and this. This sort of one of those things that when you get the rights to something, there is maybe there's a bit of pressure at times for a broadcaster to to not be negative about what they're about the events that they are covering. And I think that in recent years, particularly with the proliferation of world feeds becoming more more significance, and and fewer stations, putting their own commentary teams on things, or and just literally taking a feed, and putting it out there and often that feed is arranged by the tournament itself. The tours themselves that has increased, and there's a there's. There's less criticism out there, but there was a moment watching. I can't remember who was playing last week in Belgrade but Chris Bratton them very experienced commentator, and he was on his own and the country nobody alongside him, and there was a moment where he just said. You know I'm trying to bite my lip here, but I cannot believe that. There are still ball kids on this caught going up and taking sweaty towels from tennis players. And I remember thinking good for you Chris because that has been bothering me for the last half an hour. and we commentators yeah you. You've got to say it how it is. Otherwise you lose credibility really pleased to hear him say that, and it was an important message to just to just send out because this is not okay. Nick assistant same message. As. You might expect what's.

A Tennis Star Catches COVID-19

"Welcome the no challenges remaining. It is Sunday. June twenty first twenty, twenty I am Ben Rothenberg I was working on posting are editing an episode that I recorded a couple days ago with buddies and frequent guests, this show remobilize into all and Louisa Thomas also this episode for the beginning of it. round table talking about the open their plans etcetera etcetera. Then a couple less than an hour ago, there was a posted popped up. I think I dream and remained Toumani. Join me again hello. Hello. Irene was the first one is. If I saw a post, this poster came up on your instagram feed, and can you describe what you saw instagram? Basically posted a photo of himself with a mask, announcing that he is back in Monaco and tested positive for covid nineteen an he apologized for possibly endangering others so yeah, it was him basically disclosing that he has positive, and as we know agree, gorgeous got back from Croatia where he was playing in the Adria tour and a couple of days before that he was playing in Belgrade as well, so he's playing Novak store, and yeah, and we mentioned that obviously on the podcast we recorded two days ago. I it it should be noted that we've seen many patriots of Griego over the past couple of weeks. But that's the first pitcher. We've seen what I'm wearing a mosque. Stu Point to money no I think. Yeah, so this is sort of tenses. Thing hopefully it get to a Rudy Gobert moment in tennis where Gregoire realized I have nothing fallen close attention, paying close attention to the Adria tour, but grew on court yesterday a Saturday in Croatia playing a match inside our Croatia as part of this Adria series traveling around the Balkans he was in. Serbia and we talked about this. A bunch on the show and I think I will probably still. Post the show recorded before, but I feel like this will change the tenor of its I want to post these. Get this one up I throw show that we are connected to reality more than maybe the other episode from two days ago because I think as Louisa, early people say on the show like. In these times a lock change short period of time, this is obviously a big moment for tennis. One that I think it's fair to say that we all feared was very possible with looking at Adria series, which is exhibition event sort of started by Novak Djokovic determined director. Quote Unquote was Georgia Djokovic of ex brother. It was being held in Belgrade and a few other planned stops around the Balkans They just actually after the news of Dmitrov positive test. They just can't sold the final match of today's session in. Montenegro which was supposed to host next weekend had already said thanks, but no thanks to Adria tour canceled their leg of the event. We sort of imagined Asia tour, which was an event. Whichever one you twenty? How about you described? He described what what we saw because he posted a bunch of photos. From recent days what Adrian Tour Bend like the got people concerned something this. Business was sending. The optics are not good. Let's put it charitably that way. Yes essentially what we've seen is What is a very regular event in very abnormal times you know? Whether it's you look on twitter on on streams on on Youtube big crowds in the stadium at Novak's Club scene players. And hands and invading each other's personal space and Interacting with fans you've seen videos of. Them are on the out in a club stripping together. and. Will these images that would be normal in normal times, but these aren't normal times, and it makes you cringe a bit. And so there there there's been tons of criticism and. Of course. Rich kind of. Received a lot of criticism for an we actually spoke. To US ball. And he said kind of that. He's aware of the criticism from the West. But you know what while things may be bad in the UK or the, us, it's not. It's not the same in Serbia. And, yeah, and for that reason you know people have been kind of reacting to that and reacting badly, and that's kind of where we. Can I add? They also had a kids day. That had a lot of kids. We've seen the photo of that as well and they've had a football match, and they've had a basketball match in Croatia. They went to a concert with Donovan John August the new version others the other day, and the thing is you have players who came from countries. Who aren't Serbia and Croatia in that? You have you have players someone like Gregoire? Who flew from the states, then winces Bulgaria, possibly also to Monaco. You also have such as Vera. Vera who's traveling from different places Sasha's also saddlebrook for quite a big portion of the quarantine time you have people traveling from different places, and they got off the plane, and you see the video of them getting off the plane and immediately hugging Novak, and immediately being welcomed people into walking around the no masks I don't understand how you can get a flight and already know that that person that person didn't have time to get tested, so that already was

How long was it lying obsolete before somebody had the brilliant idea of turning it into something really useful? Sure it was like most downtowns When the interstates were built they bypass a lot of the downtown's so you know it. It fell on some hard times. Starting the mid seventies and on and off operated as the a movie theater For the ensuing twenty to twenty five years starting the mid nineties or was probably closed more than it was open and then permanently. Close Two thousand eleven. They believe you may get a little echo on this one because it's quite cavernous right Ken. Z. Were basically sitting.

Thomas Cook Collapses, Leaving Thousands of Travelers Stranded

"Thomas cook boy gone ways zombie also yeah not quite gone but not not really flying selling tickets no one really knows why it's yeah pardon my french a leseur is gone and adria airways is going going man it it has been a week you know that typical gift from the movie airplane the guy sniffing glue yup it it's it's been that kind of week it's been a very very long week for european airline and everything so from the top thomas cook over the weekend this past weekend the warning bells were starting to the warning bells of bengal offer for quite some time yeah the writing has been on the wall for thomas cook for quite some time and they were hoping to get a last minute deal to the salvage everything i think two hundred million in pounds or euros a much which but unfortunately that did not happen yeah so so the there was a refinancing agreement recapitalization agreement the they had agreed to for nine hundred million pounds and then almost the last minute the banking partners partners that they were working with asked for an additional two hundred million pounds and dow is just too much so come monday at two AM local time thomas cook look UK stopped stopped trading effectively stopped everything stopped everything was was dissolved the airline flights that were in the air continued and the u- united kingdom's civil aviation authority began what they're terming the world's largest peacetime repatriation effort yes so the UK has has a particularly on bankruptcy procedure would basically win a company declares bankruptcy that's all she wrote that's it all activity stops nothing goes on business business comes to a complete close as opposed to the elsewhere in the world like the US said every airline almost every airline has been through a reward our chapter eleven bankruptcy at some point to get their financials and debt in order and they keep operating on but in the UK you declare bankruptcy that's it you're done and it got to the point where it was literally there was a fight in the middle of were about to begin boarding at JFK this was the last flight out of north america for thomas cook for today the bags have been loaded on the plane there was a gate agent they were just about to begin boarding and that's it went out of business no no fight for you yeah i mean in even if it's to the credit of the UK CA they got those folks on a plane with i think what was it a six hour delay the flight was supposed to take off at ten pm for thomas cook and they ended up taking off at four AM which is an annoying delay but no worse than your every now and again norwegian fight i guess so i mean all things considered your airline going out of business typically you don't get to fly home that day on a plane so that was really well done by them in this case they happen to position and atlas air seven four seven four hundred already at JFK i don't know why it took so long to get things going 'cause aircraft there for twelve hours ahead of time but the the mere fact that they got out the same day extremely impressive in the the repatriation efforts by the UK CAS been no less than in a vast array of airlines you may or may not have heard of before did there so there's the ones that are most notable probably league for the virgin atlantic british airways they are putting passengers on their existing flights out of the US putting people into what would have otherwise been empty seats in getting them home for folks in europe there are all sorts of random charter carriers euro-atlantic hi fly develop free bird privilege style danish air transport get jet atlas global olympics which is actually operating an ex monarch eighth hr twenty one as part of the repatriation efforts so there's kind of i don't know what that would unique irony aurigny maybe nouvelair and my personal favorite monolith ero nice i think some of these fights are actually also operated by thomas cook aircraft itself a lot at the peak summer season thomas cook uses are either wet or dry leases aircraft from other airlines paints in their own livery so you'd never know those aircraft flying right so there's two airlines that were that were operating for thomas cook was smart links out of i the leaves estonia and then the other one is avion express and they are both thomas cook liveried lead aircraft but they are operated by their respective airlines and so they've been continuing part of the repatriation efforts i missed in their high fly i think and i apologize for that but there's also the malaysia airlines eight hundred eighty eight three eighties and then the montero they're operating the three forty six hundred which is a former eddie had aircraft ad is a sweet ride for when your airline goes out of business so some folks getting not to put a a light touch on it but some folks are getting a an improved experience somewhat to get home but it's still a terrible situation in in that goes without saying anything about the fact that you know tens of thousands of people are of work but it's been really good to see other airlines and in the UK and train lines and all sorts of service service businesses say if you worked for thomas cook you know were hiring here's a special page tell us what you do what your qualifications are and we'll see if we can bring you over as quickly as possible so that says something we've seen in the past when when an airline goes bankrupt but it's good to see that hopefully a large number folks who who working for the airlines will will find a place somewhere else now really unfortunate or a lot of very very very passionate people working for thomas cook which is a very historic brand the airline wing of the brand may not be the oldest in the world but thomas cook travel is brand itself has a lot of history history and it's really disappointing to see it kind of all evaporate overnight

Seven one three two one two K T R H that seven one three two one two five eight seven four I mentioned Facebook, if you'll scroll through the Facebook post, we pinned to the top of the page this past week's Email tip all about what I consider to be twenty nine teens prolific we'd. Production is I say get a handle on twenty nine hundred ninety s weeds now and nice comments in there. I'll let you mentioned this earlier I didn't have a name, but it was janey Zaitschek. I don't even know if I'm pronouncing that right? I'm gonna say Zaid check. But who knows that's like coach K with Duke? You look at his name. Starts with a K. And you say she chef ski, I don't get that. So Giannis last name is spelled Z A J. I C K. I'm gonna say it could be a Czech side. But I must say is I check. So I liked that are comments says love Randy. He brings it all down to my level. Oh, wait a minute. I don't know if that's a complimentary out. There's a lotta interesting comments than that had nothing to do with the Email tip at hand. When do I prove promo Granitz? We answered that. Is it too early to put down the sweet green? Yes, it is. So you can ask questions like that by calling us this morning anything related to the get a handle early on twenty one thousand nine hundred weeds. We were a couple of us that like to post things on the garden. Facebook page were blown away by the number of people that shared and liked and gave comments to the the equivalent to Prozac is running your hands through the dirt working with the soil. And I'm saying this without gloves that was called. And it was from gardening know-how is called antidepressant microbes in the soil. How dirt makes you happy? So we were able to post that from gardening know-how dot com and on garden line alone. We ended up having nearly right now. Well, just over twenty seven thousand people were have looked at that it was commented on you know, with emojis by two hundred seventy nine people and shared three hundred times in almost everybody wrote a positive comment on that. We're talking about let me pull these all up because I thought it was great. Says good therapy. Thanks Randy after my husband dies. I always felt that died. I always felt that in my garden was my therapy. Peggy wrote gives me time to think and pray. Laura road in I loved her and carry a friend of mine from a here in Tombaugh community said this explains why my happiest when I'm playing in mud. I believe a good dose is required daily. David wrote in my kids know, well and tell me all the time. Like that one from FINA. In jewel wrote in. I have a love therapy session. Every time I am in my yard and in the dirt. So this is really cool. If you haven't had a chance to read that I would go back to January tenth in our Facebook posts, and you just got to scroll down a little bit. When you see two hands full of dirt. You'll know that this is the story about antidepressant microbes in the soil, and how dirt makes you happy. So I was explaining to a potential new advertiser way out in east Texas about how this was just yesterday how things work on guard line, and how you get the endorsement of things like that. And I gave her a perfect example of nurseries and garden centres that just really fit the Bill for garden line. They have a staff there. That's very helpful. That can answer your questions staff that walks and talks with you. She's like we do that place that carries most of all the products. I talk about and plants for all seasons. Was the perfect example. I was given to this. At one time. I'm talking about the one on to forty nine just south of Jones road right there on the feeder, great, family owned and operated nursery been that way since the mid nineteen seventies. And they've been taken care of everybody on that north west side up and down to forty nine for years as the world is built up around them since the nineteen seventies. In the big box stores started popping up around him. They still stayed strong, and they are stronger than ever at a place like that. So for those of you looking for plants or getting your hands in the dirt. They've got all the bags of dirt you could ever need. They got the right fertilizers you could need, but they can also walking talk with you about the right plant choices a lot of people wanna get busy with landscaping and gardening at this time of the year because the weather has been mild now, and we haven't had any freezes in January, and that makes people want to get out and do some work. And when you want to do that, you get to a nursery garden, so that can handle your questions and get the right plants in there would survive anything per a freeze if we got..

"And if you missed Adria bogus at the bottom of the hour, he was talking about he's singled out, the two states where he feels like you would never have to deal with weather. And so he's ready to move to either Arizona or New Mexico, and I guess he's having sympathy pains on behalf of those people who are in the Carolinas who are now in the path of hurricane Florence. And by the way, they're upwards now more than three hundred thousand people who are without power all weady. The storm is just about to make land. And so he was pointing out Arizona, New Mexico. And I remember I family in both actually. And so I spent a lot of time in Tucson. But I've also worked in Phoenix at Phoenix international raceway NASCAR there and the mountains are gorgeous in the area. Certainly do go northern Arizona. You're talking about Grand Canyon Sedona, all kinds of awesome stuff. And then Albuquerque New Mexico has to be one of my favorite places in the country to higher above sea level than Denver. So you think you're in shape until you try to run a few miles in Albuquerque and the mountains there are gorgeous too. So, yeah, I'd I loved the time that I spent recently in both Arizona and New Mexico. So I guess I guess if Andrew wants to ship out and he wants to deal with some of the heater deal with monsoon season. We could probably be persuaded as a show to go. Visit him maybe we could we could take a show road trip to make sure Andrew's not lonely in his new his new place. We would MRs updates though. All right. So you can continue. You too. Take our poll about the game. You're most looking forward to we are one game into the NFL weekend. Ton of good games this weekend in college football too. So last week was kind of an aberration.
