His wife anne hathaway or agnes and the life and death of one of the couple's children hamlet who died at eleven fifteen ninety six in o'farrell's novel. He died of the plague. And the book imagines the impact that this event might have had on arguably shakespeare's greatest play hamlet. Hamlet won the national book critics circle award for fiction and it was named by the new york times book review as one of its ten best books of twenty twenty with the editors calling it a bold feat of imagination and empathy and magill. Farrell is here to talk about it from edinburgh. Hi how you doing. i'm good. What do we know historically. That's in this novel. How bearer the bones that you were working with when you sat down well i they expire himself is quite a shadowy figure. There's an awful lot about him. We don't know despite the very best efforts of the world's most brilliant scholars and shakespearean academics. So it is mysterious. You know we only have six examples of his signature which is spelt differently so there are lots of lawmakers and gaps in his story. If we think we know very little about him we know even less about his wife. The woman weeping told to call anne hathaway and his children. We only hamlet himself. The boy is lucky if he gets possibly to mentions in these big biographies of shakespeare them night and he was born and they mentioned that he died in fifteen ninety six.

Podcast Sponsorships: How to Create the Perfect Pitch
"This can be as simple or as elaborate as you want it to be but has to have some fundamental pieces. I the name of your podcast bonus points. If you include the cover art visuals always a nice touch from there. You're gonna wanna have like an about me section right. So what's your podcast. What are the hosts names What season are you in. What type of podcast is it. What's your subject matter. Those sort of basic identifiers from there. You're going one to provide some information about your audience. So average number of downloads listeners are listening from their location age and then gender for the most part you can find information about your average number of downloads as well as the locations that people are listening from on your podcasting hosting site but little bit of a hack if your podcast is listed spotify you can also go to your podcast dashboard on spotify to find out information about the age and gender of your listeners. Next you're going wanted include some kind of social proof right so this could be reviews. Emails tweets even essentially anything. Nice that your listeners have said about your podcast would be impactful and should be included in your proposal from their contact information. So how can a potential sponsor get in touch with you phone numbers emails for you or your team. You can also provide a little bit of bio if that would be helpful now pricing. A lot of us are a little bit kind of on the fence. About how to price. Ourselves we out to agnes the co founder of popcorn to provide some insight into what a good number would be That would be profitable as well as comfortable for you. For host read odds whether it's parole or mid roll we see a range between fifteen to thirty dollars c. pm but when you're doing stuff that's more native like an interview or product overview or having a guest. That's really you know. Maybe perhaps like you're not an expert in the brand's fueled your guest is an expert. Their big influencers. So like that puts a premium on on your fee. So for that when things are more integrated and a little bit more longer form. We see creators. Take anywhere between twenty five to fifty dollars. Cpr or if you're smaller and you're under thousand downloads than i really recommend working off a flat rate
Productive Action to Grow Your Business
"Hey everyone welcome to today's episode of the master. Coaching biz. Podcast in our guest. Today is agnes rosette and she is a next level. Success strategist to six-figure coaching businesses and she also hopes women leverage their time and go from silly busy to strategic and smart so welcome. I'm glad to have you here with us. Thank you very much for having me and happy to be here so it's also a little bit more about yourself Well i come from a background in quality management so this is actually where i got all that knowledge and experience to bring game systems and structures and processes that leverage the time and not only bring results but actually help you worthless because you have the right systems in place so that kinda that experience kinda have led me to where i am today helping women in coaching businesses in service businesses to to really leverage that time when they are ready to level up. Because when we're at that stage and for me it was the same. You have two choices you you kind of want to level up but you don't wanna get busier so either you do get busy. Are you work more. Or you find a way how to leverage what you already have. So this is kind of my speciality. Where i go into the business i find that weak link or weakling. Sit there are many. And i'm not reinventing the wheel or inventing anything new. I work with what they already have but to make it a more strategic and smart in a way that it truly leverage is the time instead of wasting it great. That sounds awesome. We all could use that so tell me so. Our audience here is mainly newer coaches. And what would be something that you would say. Okay this is. This is really what you have to do to get started to your time. Yeah well i you have to understand. Why do you want to do it because so many women that i have spoken to. They all say. I do want more time. I do want more time. But then when i ask a specific question what would you do too more extra hours a day. The answer is really weighed in. Not really that clear. So would you want to join another project. Do you want to spend time with your kids. Because if we don't have that clarity not gonna reach that goal and i'm sure that relies to any decision that we make so i is clarity. The second one is really. You have to understand your priorities. In prioritizing is a big part of my mentorship Because when you say but everything is important but it's not the case right there are some things are more important than others and that's just the way it is You have as a coach as a service provider. You have your zone of genius right. The it's very easy to tell what it is because you are coaching in that right but how much time you're actually spending in coaching. And how much time are you doing other things like maybe some admin tasks or a bookkeeping and things just around it. Yes they all are important for your business. You can just eliminate them but how much time comparing to your zone of genius like you know the the comparison. How am i choose that. So it's really important to understand. What is the priority. Where do you want to focus. What are those money-making activities that you need to focus more on

Saudis sporting soft-power attempt
"November twenty eighth the green lights over the greed in jeddah will go out and the first saudi arabian grand prix will into life and though twenty formula one qasr raise a mightily impressive in the start of a race. They will need to rev extra to have any hope of drowning out throughout about the propriety of this event occurring at all a row to which this very explainer is about to make a modest contribution. Let's look at the undeniable upsides. I which one take too long in and of itself. The saudi arabian grand prix will doubtless be a splendid spectacle. It is to be held on a street circuit in jeddah the precise layout remains to be confirmed but it seems certain one part of the track will conduct formula one's spelt machines down the konishi the boulevard which hugs the red sea coast. And the saudis will certainly dredge deeply from the bottomless pit of money to rent the proceedings as sumptuous extravagant as possible. It might even be of crucial importance in the context of next season. The saudi arabian grand prix will be the second lost race of the year. So if two thousand and twenty one turns out not to be yet.

One calendar is the stuff of foreign desk explainers. It is hopefully not necessary to reemphasize the variety and severity of the ways in which the saudi regime is one of the world's most repressive. We do not have all day still less all month. It is suffice to say a regime which ethically inclined businesses would tend to regard from the foreign bargepole formula one does not appear overly troubled on this front in recent years alone. Races have been held in russia as a fan bahrain and china. None of whom would be within sight of the podium at any sort of grand prix of human rights. it is probably not outrageous to suggest that formula one's principal objections to holding a race meeting in north korea. Iran equatorial guinea or turkmenistan would be logistical rather than an ethical. So we know what formula one wants from this. What's more interesting is what saudi arabia is off to.

"It's like well, people think you can write. It we didn't follow from the fact that the system is composed of a bunch of individual things that there is no possibility of studying at the higher level. That's sort of an abstract point. But more specifically I think the way that I would talk to the the neurosciences a human just like anyone else, and so they have ways of talking about themselves on their lives, for instance, how they got interested in neuroscience. And when they do that, they can either speak about themselves in a way that is like coherent incoherent and I can help them with that. I'd be like you know when you talk about how you got interested in neuro science. Like you have one way of talking about it where you say like, Oh, well, there were these truths and I got and you have this other. We like I met these this charismatic professor and I was at this place. Then you also talk about your brain I. Guess Right though that's not usually how you present it to people when you're explaining yourself right and. So the the these different ways we have of speaking and communicating about ourselves and Like if you just want to dismiss them, you can, and there's nothing I can do to prevent you from doing that but you're going to keep doing it like you're not really dismissing it. You're not sincere because you're going to keep talking about yourself using all the language that I use in my book, and what I'm trying to do is help you to do that in a way that is consistent and coherent and makes sense and You know like actually you just don't believe like you don't study the thing I'm talking about, but it's not true that you believe that it's valueless because you just use it all the time. Someone agree with that and disagree with that you get the last word. So the. Agree with you that neuroscientists going to say when asked, how did you get into it? They're gonNA say well I guess my brain just kind of. Things, fired over here and I ended up going over there and who knows. But at the same time I think. One of the challenges I think faces, economists and philosophers is. The narratives we tell ourselves and that we convince ourselves explain why we did what we did and you know we we wanna make sense we want causation to be there. We WanNa tell rational story and has just playing with words strikes me. How do you? How do you answer that? I think that's true but not all the time. So philosophers are people who believe that there's a hope of getting that right? And that if we think about it like clearly and systematically, and we draw the right distinctions and we attune ourselves to influences that are important like even from literature and from inspiration, and all of that that we can do a better job of that right. So the like I think that it doesn't make sense to dismiss that whole practice on the fact that we routinely screw it up. We are you know have this kind of tendency. To. Tell the story that we want to hear. That is true but it's not true that that's not a thing we can. We fight that. and. That's what philosophers are trying to do. They're trying to make the story that humanity tales of itself better. I guess that has been agnes. Collar her book is aspiration. Agnes. Thanks for being part of ECON talk. My pleasure.

"Was possible. If he said it a bunch of times in any case certainly whether you think whether you buy the reincarnation bit plato or socrates and he could definitely thought this all was immortal. And you could see how the socratic picture of kind of. Acting Yourself. At least to me, it fits with the thought of the soul being immortal because it's like. But there was a Chilean picture is like look at some point you are someone you are what you're going to be, and you should you should sort of like inhabit the world in your full standing south and do what you can with that. South. because. Like. It's something like the life is not a dress rehearsal. It's some part of life is a dress rehearsal aristotle thanks and so you know maybe one way to think about it would be. To Give Aristotle bibliophile more charitable view there. So it's not that you can't in in some ways keep learning, but the sort of learning element of your life gets back rounded relative to the doing element of your life. And the importance of that backgrounding for Aristotle is driven by the fact of death. I say that. Let's put this some context for a twenty year old listener. Who you know is listening to this thinking this aspiration stuff seems. Kind of good like for me but I think it's partly because of my nature I, I see it a sort central aspiration. That's why liked your book so much for me it's like the essence of how I think about. My Life Story, my narrative, my personal arc. But if I'm twenty years old, it's like it is all this highfalutin aspiration stuff. Is it going to make me happy? Agnes is. Or. Is it just going to be a burden? I don't to aspire to be a good person why would I do that? So I think that if I were talking to such a person, the first thing I would say is you already do is fire just find some area in which they as a matter of fact, I've never met twenty year old who didn't aspire in some way. At the very least Romantically, there's a kind of problem about selling aspiration considered generally. I'm not even sure we should do it. So one of the ways that people use the word aspire another one of these ways where the English word aspire pulls apart from what I'm talking about philosophically is sometimes like if someone. Goes to find themselves in Europe or something, and they're just like wandering around. They're like, I'm finding myself. We call we can call that aspirations times, right? And I don't call it aspiration like. Unless there's something more specific you're trying to find than yourself. That is I think that. It's pretty important that aspirational projects are tied to concrete values and we sell the aspirational project on the strength of the value not on the strength of aspiration. Aspiration isn't a good thing and actually kind of sucks. It often feels terrible. It means you're bad at something you feel embarrassed and ashamed of yourself you're learning instead of knowing like none of that's good What's good is the improved condition that you're GonNa get to, and it's worth it because that values important and if it's not values not important or if it's not worth the effort you're putting into it, you shouldn't do it. And so you know it's both on the what I'm saying is both on the one hand impossible to aspire in a generalized way. There's no such thing that you're doing. And also in a concrete way, we would want to sell it on the strength of the particular value. But if what I'm trying to show someone sort of what this is that it shows up for them, I would just find some arena in which they are already doing it sort of point out to them like that. This is something that they value I. Guess for me the process itself has a lot of value and that's what I would. You know I would I would encourage young people to aspire. Despite your amateur word, your concept, your narrow narrow focus, but it seems to me that the. The process by which I would call it by which we grow. In in both not just mastery that's can be part of it masters, League. Exactly in the wheelhouse of what you're talking about because mastery suggests you're already. If. It's a skill. It's not really what we're talking about. You're really talking about something much deeper, which is. You know. Often, young people will will explore different religions because they aspire to have spiritual part of their life. And so they're gonna try different things and see what? What uniform? What clothing what hat fits well with their with their self I think that's Again. Not I don't push too far that you should try that for sixty years you're probably want to wear someone for Awhile and get into the game. But I think that the search. The process the tasting that you referred to at various times, the they they beginnings of seeing the value of the value that you're aspiring to seems to be a big part of what makes life meaningful for for many people. Yet so far. In, this gets to serve another one of my views, which is I sort of don't believe in advice. And I think that like telling someone that they should aspire and try things out and be open to new things like that. That could be the right thing to say if you knew the person re it could be exactly the thing to say, right you can easily contract situations in which the wrong thing to say. Like what I want to say it's like, yeah the right amount of that in a life is good. At the right time. But. You know I think I mean one thing I guess I can say like so when I wrote the book I had this view. that. This kind of ended aspiration where there's nothing.

World hunger problem can be overcome: UN envoy
"As one of Africa's foremost thought leaders and a powerful advocate for agricultural reform Agnes Kalibata is responsible for running the first ever UN food system summit in an interview with Common Lennon from you a news Miss Calcutta, the secretary general's own void for the event outlines the ways that food systems negatively impacting the world, and how she plans to use the summit to address these problems she began by knowledge that the term food systems is not widely understood and explain why it's important to tackle. The Issue Foods Seems Pretty Complex I. I personally did not understand the the whole complexity and breadth and. Depth. For. Systems until I started engaging on this, there's a tendency that. Across. The different areas that constitute food systems we each look at the areas that impact us the most I'm from an agriculture sector perspective. So I look at how we produce food and I focus a lot on on how would produce help boxes food but there's so many other perspectives of food systems we to produce food we used a environment and and this definitely environmental perspective one but. To to consume food, it goes through several stages several of puth several things happen this whole complexity of issues around food systems from how produce it to how we move it around detail it tall with techy to the folk at the to the table. And and how influence how think about all that? There's a whole lot of. Influencing the also INS in the food system arena with regards to to to how again how food is produced how is moved reaches the table that impact. So a behavior that impacts how we think that impacts our culture. Food Systems extremely complex. It's about people's beliefs. It's about People's cultures, but it's also about life and how we leave and so so about how interact with the environment and I think how interact with the environment is probably. The most important. Part of what has gotten us in this conversation, how we interact with the environment has resulted in a security from from a food production, assist him in impacting two things in impacting our climate. So because we do contribute to emissions but also in impacting by diversity and how diversity walks for us all and yet we know that they've they've versity besides having the rich life itself. We it's something that we need to be able to to live a full life. So those are two parts of impacting the environment, but there's there's another perspective of food systems are also impacting our health one in every three. People this. The let the biggest cause of today is is how eat the type of food we eat is on nutrition we still have. About six, hundred, one, thousand, nine, hundred people to. That even amidst the plenty because we do have a lot of food in this world. The plenty a still going hungry. And, then there's this whole challenge around. The fact that I talked about that, we have so much food being produced to the extent that one trillion dollars worth of food western every one trillion dollars worth of food. So so meaning, we could actually feed the people that are going hungry or with how much we stink. So that is another perspective and then I talked about the issue of equitable neighborhoods and access to food, and then the issue of just ensuring that we have resilience in food systems so that we don't have challenges as we've seen with COVID data result of. Our. Our reaching. Overreaching inability to to access food that ends up gritting what sorts of other problems. So in a nutshell. We have those challenges but I think the most important part of our food system, which is the reason we are having different systems summit. The most important part of all that is recognizing the. Despite what we able to do we are awestruck in all the digital set out the top to do with food systems whether it is reducing poverty. Or whether it is reducing hunger or were they tease nutrition and how nutrition for us whether it is how impacting our environment reducing West The the perspectives of our food system, that I'm putting impacted by this digits not working with and in many cases are truck. So so the whole complexity of all these things being of truck is really what lead to. The secretary general last year calling for Food System Summit Thou be able to look at the challenges that the summit. The I mean the food system is presenting, but also the opportunities that the food system does present if we if we choose to look at it from a different angle, and if we choose to do different things and this summit is really about helping US Open the world governing action and helping people choose to do things differently what for you a successful food system summit like? A successful food summit with first of all governor is all the people that we are looking to engage because a food system summit in each and every one of us. So for me, I see our ability to rich and NIA and be able to mobilize mobilize cautiousness around what is broken in our food system, and how often system should change would be point number one, govern ising energy, and stressed. in you will looking at food system. So that would be point number one. How would we mobilize or wild to cut our food system number two would be. Recognized that we are off truck, how will we set ourselves doucet ambitions for ourselves to do things differently, the number of areas where action has already been defined with look at parties. When you could digits most of the things I've already been defined. The question is we off truck. The question is we are not on missions and not much ink or our actions are not much inclined to have laid out to do. So the For me success would be that we raise the on Bishen too much what we have laid out as what we wanted to see we know what wants to see, but we are not raising mission high enough to be. Able to come through those things. So number three is that we when we do have some commitments around, we can do to raise those ambitions to the that will transform our food system to new type of system. So for me, those would be the probably the three most important things. As you say, there is enough food for everyone, but people are still starving the environment is still being damaged. How is this failing system evolved? We've we've built excesses within insisting that we probably don't need that for me that would be point number one again, I talked about the amount of westward within our system. Do we have to have that type of West? We've designed a food systems in ways that are not responding to what we need as people. Is it possible to step back and escort sims? What do we really need and how focus but we need more than what is good to have? So we already have the good thing is have that knowledge would did have a not a lot of knowledge are around what is good for us and what is good for environment also have a lot of merger on what we are doing wrong and also have a lot of noted including technologies around what to do differently. That's why talk about ambition that's why I took about committing to that ambition. So what we need, it's what we need to do is not rocket science. What we need to do mostly is about. Galvanizing mobilizing their level. Of Energy into our systems and red level of interest but also the right level of political commitments from within our countries where we need to do that. And but also one shouldn't forget is mobilizing the right level of engagement for more private sector because food systems. Much as impacts all of us, we also a different players in different places at different times, and we have a whole lot of of players that do do engaging in different places and the interest change and their willingness to change and their willingness to work with all of us to find the right pieces of the food system that should be going forward. When we agree on what needs to be abandoned is but is some is as much a public good as it is a private sector thing that must all come around around. An unreadable together and yes, it's true. We have a central group that is working to help us understand the evidence of where we need to be going and what we need to be taking forward. And these people are galvanizing. Evidence from one of the world and they're looking at a tweet has been working in different places and they're looking at what what would work for where we are going. So we are going to build a lot of Of what we take forward on on the evidence that the central could group that has been put together will provide for us as as what constitutes what going forward looks like what leap what what we leave behind looks like. So we are going to to really depend a lot on what descent sense group is going to tell us. Do you think it's going to be difficult few to hold together the

"In terms of their many parts to your question, one of them was the man needs so gone off the deep end politically so. I think that you know there is this kind of bit of like. There's been a crisis humanities for a long time in some of that crisis. Is the humanity somehow losing faith in itself? And it's almost like. You know there's this question. Do these ideas really matter? And one way they could matter as they could make a certain kinds of immediate political difference that we could then see sort of mapped out in the world. And so I see the inclination to sort of politicize the humanities as a sign that like. There's some. Some basic problems seeing the ideas as mattering on their own. and. I do think that that's something that we humanities really have to work on. It should be like our first priority is to. Get in touch with the sort of intrinsic value. That would not make us feel like we needed to do that. In order for these ideas to matter, because it is important I think it's important also not to delve into the other extreme, and to just think of the humanities as like. Like fancy expensive entertainment or something like these ideas matter right, and so the the person who's politicizing is sort of in touch with the idea that they should matter but but there should be a greater variety of ways in which they can matter, and there's some way in which we have to like all.

She recalled and then this grid came into my mind and I thought it represented innocence and so I painted it and then I was satisfied. The tree was painted on a square canvas. It's a grid of long thin. rectangles tangles painted over horizontal stripes. That alternate between a lighter and darker blue weirdly. At least to my is it really does look like innocence. It looks like how you feel when as a kid you know that magic isn't real but you also kind of secretly secretly think it might be. I find it interesting. That Martin chose rectangles for so so many of her paintings because they're so common in the human parts of the anthropoid scene and so rare in the natural parts like when I wrote wrote this I was sitting on a rectangular couch with my feet propped up on a rectangular coffee table looking out the rectangular window of a rectangular we're door and through that window I could see a maple tree. The last of its leaves clinging to branches. There was nothing rectangular about that tree or for that matter anything else I could see in the woods outside. Nature is freckles. It's is curved spiked round oblong and porous. And so. It's very clear that Martin is not trying to paint a tree. She is painting the innocence of a tree. She's not trying to paint a rose. But the beauty of a rose and this gets in an old problem in art whether music or literature or visual art. Or whatever it's easy enough to paint a symbol we'll of innocence unclothed newborn baby say or the unwind softly with face of a maiden or a lamb or whatever whatever but those are not pictures of innocence itself. Innocence has no face or shape. It's an abstract idea. Of course metaphor can be away into those abstractions but when over relied upon metaphor becomes not just a crunch which but a falsehood if we start to conceive of innocence as having the form of a lamb then we have wrongly defined both lamb lamb and innocence. Furthermore these symbols aren't universal. They're highly dependent upon cultural context. The question engine for Martin was how do you paint. Innocence without relying on those essential ising metaphors and that endeavor to paint emotion itself. Life was and still is highly controversial. In the art world Martin's friend Ad Reinhardt. Once said that quote artists who peddle weekly lines and colors as representing emotion should be run off the streets and I do get it when people look at Martin's paintings meetings of rectangular grids and say I could do that I mean they couldn't but I understand the urge to walk past Martin's paintings in a gallery the aura museum and roll your eyes. I did that for years actually but then one day I found myself in a room of six Agnes Martin paintings called with my back to the world. She painted them in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven near the end of her life. They're they're just horizontal bands of faint. Color Pastel pinks and yellows and blues. In some cases the colors are barely visible. And when I first saw them at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City they crack me open. They made me cry looking get them.

I was buried beneath the monastery and none of his successors had as much interest investing and monastics membership at the cloister slowly dwindled until it was barely a skeleton crew of nuns and Franciscan friars. Here is keeping the monastery afloat and at the dawn of the fifteenth century. All of the confidence occupants were forced to leave their home entirely. Oh he MEA was at war more than that. It was a holy war. The pope had declared a crusade eight against the US sites a year ago and the chaos threatened to tear their country apart sister. Hana tried not to concern herself with politics. She was pledged alleged her order. Enter only duty was to the sick and wounded who passed through her monastery at least it had been the fighting fighting had gotten too close to the city. The Franciscan friars had already fled Prague fearing persecution by Husayn mobs. Eventually the Abbess told them at their morning running gathering they were banned in the competence well and make for the monastery of saint add tonight was the last night Honda would spend in the wall. She had grown to know so well sister. Gabriela had tried to comfort Hannah but it was no good hon a loved this old building she knew it was selfish and very unchristian to feel so possessive but she hated to think of these walls being used to store weapons of war after caring for for the mangled and mutilated bodies of men sent to fight the crusaders. She had a hard time seeing the glory in it. Hana did not sleep at all that night. She stared at her window praying silently. When she ran out of prayers she whipped and when she ran out of tears the weeping continued Hana Rosen stared out her window. A dark shape shape lurked in the moonlit courtyard. It wore a habit and its shoulders shook with sobs from her window on couldn't quite tell who it was. It was one of her sisters without a doubt but there was something unfamiliar countenance as she she stared the figure seemed to disappear swallowed by the semi-darkness of the courtyard. A chill ran ran upon a spine there was nothing out of place in the courtyard but the image of the none was so vivid in her mind she could not have imagined it aw she threw on a show and ran out to where she had seen the figure whoever it was needed comfort and that was something. Honda was skilled at giving but when she reached the grounds they were empty. Hana looked around. It was so quiet that she could hear her own heart beating she feared this would be the last quiet the monastery whatever no soon it would be filled with men and horrible machines of war four swords spears hand cannons even if their cause was righteous she could not condone using monastery as an armory a clear ringing sound pierced the silence like a needle on a turn searching for its origin her. I caught a glint of silver by the STONEWALL. She stepped over to it almost without thinking at her feet lay a single silver coin fine. She picked it up and turned it over in her hand. In ordinary coin a strange glimmer of hope fluttered in her chest. One of these could buy bread for a score beggars. Perhaps there was some good she could do outside of the convent. The sound came again further along the wall on fod and found another coin. This one was frayed at the edges like it had been cut out of a sheet of silver with a hot knife. She marveled at the metal a glow spread from its center until the entire coin was like a star in her hand a moment later on felt a searing pain follow it. She dropped the burning coin with a gasp. The bright metal spun through the air the globe dwindling until it's gone on never heard it hit the ground. She looked up to see the shape again across the courtyard. It moved steadily Italy more gliding than walking toward the chapel of the Virgin Mary Hanafin keeping pace with the weeping woman. She did not wish to start a one of her sisters. She was on her way to a midnight prayer. Perhaps she can even join her. Such grim times called for solidarity among the Faithful Bill. Hanna was happy to step inside the chapel. The wind felt especially cold tonight as the weather itself was trying to stifle the heat of the conflict conflict. Hana's shook off childish thought the chapel felt more baron than it ever had. It looked like it was ready to be abandoned. The thought broke on his heart. A few paces ahead of her sister had stopped. Her head was bowed but she still lapped. Hana approached slowly. When she was close enough she reached out and touched the woman lightly on her shelter. A shiver passed from the figure through Hana. Her sisters shoulder was icy cold to the touch and felt strangely insubstantial like trying to grasp out a lace curtain curtain on a told her sister she had no need to worry their order was not one of Paul's. It was their hearts and their faith that kept them together together. Not The buildings God's will would get them through your sister. Turn and Hana finally got to look at her face but something was wrong. Hana new every single one of her sisters. This was not one of them. Though she wore the threads order her sunken cheeks. Halloween is were completely alien to haunt her skin was gray and cracked like the frozen streets of Prague in winter twin grooves ran down from each of our eyes as if so many tears had worn her face into empty riverbeds uh and that the strange none opened her mouth to speak her tongue was frayed and it's inside it was caked with some dry black substance that looked like burnt coal letter words leaked through Honda felt the strength lever legs the Specter.

The man lying by her side in three quick strides michelob crossed the room he sees Carell by the neck and threw him against the wall.

"Welcome to the dirty bits of history. I'm Tony flatness of voice actor and comedic writer who gives a casual all southern Californian retelling of the sexy scandalous salacious fierce funny and frigates of history. Your teacher probably left out. Stay tuned after the show or take a peek at the show notes for contact info coming attractions and a special. Thank you message to our producers in today's assode we're taking it all the way back to fifteenth century France when Agnes barrel. A lady-in-waiting from a family of minor nobility became the first officially recognised mistress I to the king inspired many artists of the time most notably John Phuket's virgo lacked hands or the nursing virgin and was the first woman to Hash Tag free the nipple and everyone was totally cool with the king having public lover. Nobody flipped their ship because she was depicted as the mother of God and artwork. She was never criticized for what she wore said or you did. And she's been remembered accurately as well as fondly shows kidding. She's a woman we never get off. That easy agnes was born in fourteen. Eighteen twenty two to parents firmly on the see list in regards to nobility so they sent her off to work as a lady in waiting to the Duchess of Lorraine Isabella one day Isabela sister-in-law. Who happens to be the queen of France Marie on June? No big deal calls rapid us like. Hey girl I'm looking for a new lady in waiting. Do you know anybody and Isabelle goes. Oh my gosh I just hired the Surrou- starter awhile back. And she is off mazing. You'd love her. Want me to send her on over and Queen. marie-anne shoe goes. Ah Yes you are the best babe. What would I do without you kisses so agnes have set on over to the Royal Palace in fourteen forty four and starts her new job of which she totally sleighs up? It's not long before the King of France. Charles the seventh notices agnes waiting on his wife and it's like damn who said this. This indicated early on that Agnes must have been especially hot stuff historian slash politician Francois Frederic stenographers wrote in eighteen. Sixty eight Charles. The seventh had a crowd of anonymous mistresses or rather a sort of Harem. A traveling deer park. Who followed him everywhere he goes on to say about? Agnes she had all at once by a rare privilege. A superior beauty of the body and the soul with this physical and moral vitality that satisfied all the demands of love that meant that she was more than a great pair of boobs. And if John folkets painting is even remotely accurate depiction they were really great. Agnes had the full package and the king was sprung to put it lightly which meant that the plan that King Charles. The sevens mother-in-law had put into place had worked see. The king didn't give a rat's ass about the English invading France and Joan of arc was the one who took care of the Hundred Years War for him he was Moody Low Energy and would often fall onto depressive paranoid episodes where he would self isolate. This was particularly fascinating because his dad was Charles. The six who was married to Isabel Varia the couple responsible behind those Kooky tutors of England and more importantly dirty bits alumnus. In this case the apple fell way far away from the tree King Charles. The seventh didn't have the same motivation his parents did for well. Anything except gambling drinking and women. The state of the country was so bad. Our Buddy Stephen Akers wrote that it was one of the saddest periods in his country's history. England owned almost two-thirds of France and Charles had put all of France's money in quote the pawn shop. Now this is where Agnes came in so the Queen's mother Newland who must have inspired the character of tyrel brings agnes by us. It's like Hey aggie. I saw the king checking out the other day. Oh no no no no girl girl. It's fine I'm not mad at all. I'm stoked you're not stupid you know. He's a disaster and I'm sure you don't want this country to go up in flames any more than the rest of us. The only thing that seems to light a fire under this guy's ass is sex when he approaches you. Start Sleeping with them. It's not a suggestion. It's a command do it and Agnes says okay. I totally get where you're coming from. Sleep with him influence him get him to care got it. What about his wife? The Queen Clean now. Annual land just started busting up and went you think my super religious daughter with fourteen kids going to be bummed. You're sleeping with her. Super Horny husband Bitch Bitch. You are doing her a favor. She will be the Damn Godmother to any shoulder new to pop out. I promise you this so agnes starts dating the king and dude gave her anything thing and everything property jewels cars every streaming subscription and existence. The king may have even gifted her the very first cut diamond necklace. A fun in fact. This was around the time that diamonds were just starting to become not quite as rare as they once had been before the middle of the century the pretty much came exclusively from from India diamonds. Were so rare and pretty that king. Louis the ninth had outlawed wearing them. Unless you're the actual king about two hundred years before so you can imagine in what the gentry thought of some blonde little tart wearing them about the palace all Willy Nilly Charles the seventh was like Ti and Agnes could have whatever she liked. The two were attached at the hip totally inseparable. The king made her mistress to the crown in France and even took her to the big serious official type of events. Now this was one of if not the best job you could get as a woman at the time illegally. You couldn't be in politics or do much of anything really but if you were dating the king and he was legit it into you. So you know. He wasn't like Ramsay. Bolton King Joffrey type you had a lot of power you could just get all snuggled up after foreign accounting and whisper baby. You're amazing mazing. I love you so much. He knows it would be really amazing. Though if you gave more money to the poor and if you helped injured animals and make Chile Brown burritos a mandatory menu item every Mexican food restaurant and the king would go. Yeah of course totally consider it done seriously. Though she really did do a ton of cool will shed. In addition to being dropped at gorgeous she was intelligent and kind monster. Lay The chronicler. Once wrote so this agnes was of a very charitable way of life and liberal and alms giving and of her possessions. She distributed widely to the poor to the churches and bakers. She was also able to convince Charles Charles. The seventh to bring on advisors with great resumes to handle the economy and the English Agnes also promoted Francis a place of culture. She gets his reputation as being Nevada and materialistic girl but she really had a shrewd mind for marketing. She wore all these luxury goods as a public figure which gave her nation publicity as well as the reputation for being Aviv place for opulence and Splendor Charles ended up doing a total one eighty after they got together. Steinecker said that the king who having already come to the age of thirty having understood neither his situation nor his duties and having seemed destined for eternal mediocrity reveals himself out of the blue and as if by magic and historian on re Martin said that sorelle urged the King to overcome his laziness. Charles finally became interested in his business and in applying his commonsense sense and practical spirit to listening to useful advice and accepting by hand if not choosing good instruments of government. In just two years France France had almost entirely regained at slant from the British all thanks to Agnes sorelle. She's been compared to Joan of arc in regards to how great her influence was in the country on more than just one occasion. Listen but it wasn't all rainbows and orgasms for aggie while the French court was comparable to the UC Santa Barbara campus. As far as debauchery went even those heathens were like official mistress. That's an appropriate then. Artists John Depicted her as the Virgin Mary in one of his paintings and the court was like like. Are you fucking serious. You're going to use an airheaded. Hussy as the model. For the holiest woman who ever lived really but John McCain was like of of course I am. She's literally the most beautiful woman in the world who else. Unfortunately the artist support didn't help much. She was in a position of power so she naturally made enemies since Agnes was a woman the easiest way to ruin her by calling her applauding manipulative temptress Stein Akers the actual educated historian really put it best last when he said a mistress raised to the official rank of favourite was not only a novelty. It was a revolution which like all revolutions could not take place without leaving behind indignation and hatred for example. y'All got super excited. Because you heard she was some major women's rights activists making a statement by rock and out with their tits out out. There's actually next to no evidence that ever even happened. She may have pushed her girls up to her chin and she may have worn some very revealing gowns that left little to the imagination. But she didn't have a favourite BOOB. She wanted accentuated by having custom-tailored peekapoos sections carved out in her attire. These rumors were in large part due to the king's son and ere the Dauphin Louis particularly hating her his buddy George chastain Duke of Burgundy said and I quote all the women of France and Burgundy lost cost much and modesty in wanting to follow the example of this woman indeed had twenty seven girlfriends himself. But I'm sure it was a special circumstance and he was super super. Sorry about it and him saying that wasn't hypocritical or politically motivated in this latest. Now Louis Dauphin was the polar opposite of his dad he was intelligent a born warrior and was highly motivated and passionate at just seventeen. He looked at the Rome.

Come back if you banish your girlfriend and everyone had a good laugh at court because they knew that wasn't gonNA in a happen and they went back to whatever they were doing. Which of course pissed Louis off? He told his friends. And I quote. The king manages his affairs as badly as possible people. I intend to put things in order when I return. I shall drive away. Agnes and she'll put an end to all of his follies and things will go much better than they are now. Remember about about love bugs.
