California Governor Newsom Defeats Republican Recall Effort
"By a landslide or close to it. The former san francisco mayor fought off an effort to oust him from office to begin with frustration over his handling of the pandemic had the california recall been successful. It's likely the next governor of this deep blue state would be conservative. radio host larry elder. He was leading big among the replacement candidates. So what's next for california under gavin newsom. Does he now have the wind at his back. My guests are job. Era fully hosted. The it's all political podcast as well as alexi kossuth and destined gardner the chronicle sacramento correspondents. Thanks for joining me. That was not exactly a nail biter of an election night. Earliest election night. Ever i believe in my in my history here so what happened. I mean where you guys expecting this. We we started watching the results role in just after eight. Pm and immediately a big big deficit for recall supporters alexi. Yeah we knew coming into it that it was likely that newson would go up big early for weeks. Now we've been tracking the returns of the early ballots and it was clear that democrats were returning their ballots in large numbers. They were really heeding the call of newsom to get involved in defeat this thing and avoid handing stay over to republican control but it was still rather surprising how large of a margin newsome had early on At one point more than seventy percent and it's just an impossible kind of margin to overcome in a state where republicans now only make up a quarter of the electorate so it became very clear very quickly that this recall was going down in
Professional Runner Abbey Cooper on Trusting the Process With Both Commitment and Surrender
"Your takeaway from your conversation with alexi was trusting. The process requires both commitment and surrender. And i think this is something that the everyday runner can relate to Perhaps as much as the professional runner. I'd be curious if you could share a little bit about kind of where that came from and what that means right now. Oh my gosh. We had such a rich conversation in. I can't even imagine you and election having a conversation that i would just sit there and be like this is like this is too good. I can't handle it like the two of you in a room together is that's too much it's too good. It's so funny because we can go like super deep super vast an irish very like silly and she's just wonderful so yeah. I was thrilled. That i got this year l. a. I raised there a few weeks ago and we were just sharing like we're we were at in what we're learning in our like athlete life experiences and Yeah just a similar theme came up of i. I guess i was sharing something about like. You know getting hurt or hurt but like getting that hamstring strain rate before trials in that being like a really good thing that happened to me in the long run because it it required to like. Just die to my control and expectations And she was saying similar thing about you know being. She was on a creative project and she wasn't able to do her normal training and so she like she just changed her mind set about it she was like this is how it like. I'm instead of feeling resentful or bitter or worry. Like i'm just going to reframe this and surrender. What i think i need to do. And she was just saying how surprise she was at how okay. She felt although her training wasn't perfect. And so yeah. There was this theme that like it. It's good you need to be Pursuing a goal obviously requires this like relentless almost stubborn commitment. Like to keep showing up. But at the same time you have to have a loose grip on how that goes you know like not only the result but also the process

But let's put it this way in physics right. If you want to know the volume of an object you can put it in water and see how much it displaces right so in that way you can learn if you know everything something is not you can kind of know what it is okay so you can be defined by what.

"Yeah so when. I wrote the proposal. I mentioned nothing about my own depression at all because i was going through it when i wrote the proposal and i was too embarrassed about depression when i was in it. I wrote the proposal when i was sick and didn't understand things in writing. The book proposal was like one grasping at straws to get a hold of my future to be honest with. You said you had a bunch of big ideas that were happening in the wake of all that. I'm gonna do this that do this. A million things. I do think writing helps because it's one thing to have an experience and it's another thing to be able to describe it in a way that translates to people and an memoir is not a diary like it's not meant for yourself. You know that there are people that are going to read it. And i think that's a different type of writing. And it's it's finding the right words that people will like be able to visualize and i think one of the biggest things i learned was. I think it was two things one. The thing you talked about your identity not being what you do. Because when i first started for the olympics and trying to make movies i really separated those narratives for myself because i wanted to be taken seriously as a world class runner and as great award winning actor and filmmaker separately. Because i knew that. I didn't want an excuse like she's an okay runner who can act or she's a mixed decent movies but she can run and that was in my own head but at this point i think the book was all of the things in one and i wanted to be able to communicate in a way that made it a cave for myself that i was all the things that i am actually remember a conversation with rachel who is like a mentor and acting one of our movies tonight. A conversation with aerospike. Wait a minute. If i put this book out talks a lot about depression am i gonna preclude myself from a future in like comedy or enacting because this is such a intensely mental health driven narrative. You didn't want your identity and your public identity to be depression. Yeah and it was described like my identity in the book is like someone described it as like a kind knife. And i'm like that. Sounds a little different than likes what i might want to be doing in my future. And she was like first of all. Comedians are some of the saddest people on earth. And second of all. It's all leading you where you're going and advice from people that i admire helps me if someone says it. And it's my olympic coach to rachel draft or to richard linklater. That means something different than if my dad said it. As much as. I love my dad. I don't know how you feel about like it matters. Who comes from and you can't control that. It means something different coming from different people. I would say there was a long period where it did and i would say. Mostly no for me. Now i think even the people i admire can advise you how to do what they did. And i don't think you're trying to do something anyone else did. And i don't ultimately think i'm trying to do something else. Did the simplest thing remember. You know like i. I ran into adam sandler. And he's like. Hey buddy you got pretty ripped for that movie.

"He was the italian team sailor and he took everyone to rio on a multi mass ship or if he was just like a coach that was just completely lying because there are few coaches that get to be in the village not every coach but a few get to be in there. What decides that you know. I think that they're like every country gets head coaches for certain sports like my coach was not in the village but every country also get six passes day for people to visit and that's where also being from greece was really helpful. Because if you're from the us phelps is gonna get those passes or the vice president of the united states and there's only six day and so. I got to bring my dad village. And i cannot tell you like you know. My dad's like giants baseball season ticket. Older he's like the biggest sports fan of all time and he just kind of kermit the frog and like his is have never been so big allows the best kermit's my favorite person to compare people too. I love all people. I've permit the frog. He looks like a cross between kermit and bill gates. Oh speak greek. I speak enough greek to have teammates to be there. So i actually got stuck in greece for five months at the beginning of the pandemic really unexpectedly because of the pandemic. And that's where. I learned the most greek that i've learnt. I was living in a college town and was supposed to race and then the olympics got pushed in everything got shut down and stayed there for five months until i needed to learn how to fix my laptop when it broke. And like that right. Okay so your experience sounds like it was really really great. Yes it was everything. Did you have any depression about like not getting a gold medal or anything like that for me. No because i ran faster than i ever run. I broke a national record. Also in a race that broke the world record and eighty percent of the race broke national records so it was like the fastest. Okay that's ever happened. In the history of the world you're wide like thirty one thirty six or something. That's exactly that is unreal. Monica six point two miles in thirty minutes every miles. A five minute mile for fucking six point two mile. That's a mural. I really can't wrap my head around. You must not be a hypochondriac. Because i would definitely be like my heart is giving out or do you like the feeling of that but first of all if you have a really good coach you feel like you could go to the edge and this is the other thing that when we talk about the mental or physical health. I'm not great at self-regulating but if you have a coach who can hold you back when they need to and then know that when they let you go. You'll just try your best. So i had a coach who peaked me. So athletes are like pencils. I mean people are like pencils where you can sharpen yourself and mostly you wanna be like a dull strong pencil but every once in a while you to like really sharp the pencil. And that's the olympics right. You wanna be peaked And if they time it right then you're ready to do whatever your mind wants your body to do and it will do whatever you tell it. Oh boy like somehow that's all funneling into like there's something there's something erotic about that you're at peak your and maybe it was the word. Yeah that sounds like p q. That's why so many like children are conceived at the olympics. Like that is because people are at appear right there at their peak emotionally physically. There's high lows like there's no more wild extreme place than that. Dopamine is a waterfall at that point for everyone yeah. There are kids conceived the olympics..

"Yeah and i think that if we dream chasers like let's say the olympics is one type of dream but if any dream chaser goal chaser was aware that there was a chapter after the dream is either accomplished or realized that you're meant to feel or meant to recover than this whole thing could be very avoidable and the truth is that nobody for the olympics. For example nobody talks about the moment after you because then you might not get there in the first place and so i don't even know that the mainly our the lead is such an unhealthy or unusual or even avoidable thing so much as. I wish that i had somehow been prepared to embrace the moment after. And i know we haven't even talked about the moment itself but that is just what i'll say is that like there is no preparation for that. I guess that's the thing. I wanted to say at some point in this. Which is i think it could sound often. Like i'm saying don't bother trying to become an actor because blah blah blah. That's not what i'm saying or don't become an olympian. No one should try to do anything. No i'm saying definitely tried to do all that but be realistic about what it's going to accomplish. It's not going to give you an emotional state you desire. That's really the only thing i'm saying. It's just like do that. Become the biggest director in the world but also no you look in the mirror and feel the exact same way you did before you were the director in the world. Yes exactly and i do. Think that the post-olympic depression can get a bad name in people. They talk about the olympics. Being the problem. But it's really just like. I should have been prepared as a twelve year. Old too slowly begin to manage what that would have been like so i agree with you. The goals are not the problem. Dreams are not the problem and they are not the thing that should be getting the bad name. It's just the approach. It's almost the love addiction like when you learn about love addiction and how people ride that high. I think our dreams can be a form of love addiction because we fill in what our lives will be like. And we paint this fantasy. Which is just a fantasy and i think the look for love addicts another humans going to give them that and for maybe dream chasers. It's the dreams going to give them that. And it's really just the real aronie thought. It's just that anything's going to give you that. Yeah and we eventually learn that like the best thing to chase his like trying your best rather than being the best and that's what now i have more satisfaction about when you go to rio. You compete for our country for the mother homeland. You'll have to adjust that. I compete for greece. All oh my goodness okay. That's okay came up. I'm dual.

"And we've done it. We've avoided the thing we wanted to avoid. And you want to feel that final conclusion that you've definitely done it. And i chased that through a lot of outward accomplishment and the thing is that i did get a lot of those. Outward accomplishments to be driven by trauma is really potent. It's just also really unsustainable. Yeah in do you think you also got really skilled at fantasy. yeah like visualizing where you were going. How did it apply for you just like. I didn't want to be often where i was at so i had this very active. I was constantly planning where. I would end up because i didn't like this. And so with no game plan. I would just sit in practice. My interview with david letterman. But i wasn't going to pursue acting or anything. I don't know why i was going to get there. But maybe that's universal. But i do know that. I was super preoccupied with this life. I would at some point be occupying where. I was really special whether i was a novelist or i was a musician or something. I just was really active with those fantasies. Yes so that seems like a good thing. I did that too. And i think i also tried to fill this like gap of the mother role with other women like a szeswith women and like for some reason. I seem to fixated on women in comedy. And i don't know why but i thought about it. I never said this out loud. Maybe it's gonna make me sound kind of silly. But like i would read amy poehler a buck. Listen to it on audio book on repeat and it just feels like she was talking to me. It was because i wanted to be accepted by that person. And i think it's because women in comedy were reminded me of the closest thing to may what the best version of my mom could have been of someone who like had bipolar manic person. I just mean what i was. Perceiving in comedy was like highs and lows and honesty could have been the best version of her. And i've never said this out loud. I don't know if it makes any sense. Yeah no it does. And i just. I was excited. I was playing at monica. She too had her own thing in her own. Fantasies derived by on. Speak for you..

"You're chasing we can like zone in and chase that goal but if someone were to tell us actually your gold should be health. Because you're not healthy. We would probably be able to shift focus. Make that our goal. Just if you don't know to recalibrate shifter goal than we won't yeah. My goal was make a lot of money and have people recognize me and that ultimately didn't didn't feel great. That feels like the equivalent of when i was chasing my own versions of outward accomplishment right for me it came from a place and i don't know if you both can relate but i think as driven by like an unhealthy drive to not be like what i thought my mother was. She took her life. So i had a lot of association with that where i just like did. I want to be anything. But that you're five right. Your mother committed suicide. When you're five years old. Yeah and what i like about us. I saw you an interview owning your resentment towards her. Tell us about that. I like that. You admitted that lets so powerful for me. It came from a place of the narrative. I was kind of fed about her about her. mental health. Injury was that she was just so sick that she had to leave. And the things that i saw in the first few years of life like i'd four memories and three of them were just terrifying an awful made me feel like if i ever felt the things that she felt than my fate might be a foregone conclusion because of the narrative that i was fed and also of what i saw. How was her mental health. Explain to you so when she was sick like in the first few years of my life she wasn't around because she was in and out of these just like drug rehab or mental health rehabs. She just kept having episodes including a know. How specific to be here. Whatever you're totally well and also this comes to replace of like some of my audience are like fifteen year old girl. So i'm just like a very wear that there's like a version of this that i can say but unfortunately we are not hejin to get there but i think we're definitely more college graduate demo. Exactly so i mean. She was manic depressive. So she would have these manic episodes when she was home and just experiencing someone who's like thinks like the toasters talking to are screaming like all i remember was like seeing her. Is this like a barbie doll. Where like you brush hair too much. Just like kinda crazy woman figure who could not handle her shit and it made me really sad so i didn't really resent her at that time because i was sad for her. And it's hard to feel resentment towards something you feel bad for but it's also hard to look up to them. Well let me just add as tests you can take childhood trauma tests and if you have more than three of the tenure. You're likely to have some pretty predictable outcomes and one of the main ones is. Did you have a parent with mental health issues so like what you. Experience is very very traumatic. Yeah and one time..

I never knew why my forehead was so big it is. I think that's true. I think that's true and it is like a sport that's as mental as it is physical when you get into like the long long distance running. I mean those are races of attrition. right it's not about the heroic at the as much as devout hanging in there and being narrow at the end. I wanna earmark something about this for later in your story when we talk about starting to deal with depression and then what i would imagine. You're training is almost your worst enemy in that like you have conditioned yourself to ignore the signs of discomfort and you have put so much time into. Yeah this fucking sucks. But i'll get through it and there'll be something on the other side of it that that could end up being a terrible mechanism for addressing one's mental state at any given time yes like particularly if the world sees you as some kind of like superhero. Then you're not allowed to. This is not true but you feel that you're not allowed to experience all these negative emotions. Yeah they always want to see you as like a superhero and this is probably something i created but i've experienced this in physical and mental pain. Where all in some kind of physical pain but still be able to run like twenty miles or hundred miles on a week and be told that. There's no am injured if i could do that. Workout and i guess that's on me to understand that even though i have a high pain tolerance. It doesn't mean it's like good pain and there's a good plan in bad pain. I've just relating to you as you see. I have this port in my arm and i've had three surgeries this year and i have a really high pain threshold and the people that love me. Go like just because you're not suffering from these injuries does not mean. You should keep accumulating them yeah. That's a really delicate line. And that's where we rely on people to tell us certain boundaries like actively nand. That's why it helps to have like a mental health. Doctor say like you are sick. Are your brain is injured. Just like it helps to have a coach or a doctor.

Why Has the US Sanctioned Russian Officials but Not the Saudis?
"The. Us treasury department sanctioning russian officials in response to the poisoning the attempted assassination of a russian political leader and dissident alexi navalny ni With novacek. Do you think this is a good idea. I do i do i. It was just unacceptable for the united states to be silent in the wake of russia's most important opposition leader being intentionally poisoned now in prison by putin's government. I mean if we don't lead the global fight to protect democracy and stand up for pro democratic movements in places like russia no one will and what we see is that the forces of despotism are on the march democrat democracies that we took for granted just ten years ago are now slowly sliding away from self determination even in and on the edges of europe and so by standing up to one of the world's most brutal bullies vladimir putin We are also. I think sending a signal to nascent democracy movements and fragile democracies that america is back on the democracy promotion stage so speaking of that. There's a there. Of course. Also the release of the previously classified report about the intelligence communities findings about bin hamad bin salman that he had greenlighted at the very least the operation to capture or kill but those are the words. They're a jamal khashoggi. Newspaper columnist the washington post. The biden administration not doing anything personally. Mohammed bin salman not revoking visa. Travel rights were personal sanctions. Saying the emas recalibration not a rupture. We've been very clear with a saudi. This is an historic partnership. It's lasted for seventy five years. What do you think of that. I mean i think you can sort of connect these two conversations. There's no question that vladimir putin ordered the poisoning of alexei navalny but we didn't announce sanctions on putin today largely because We tend to not levy sanctions on the leaders of countries And i think that is probably part of the rationale for why m b. s. was spared sanctions but i would make this argument on saudi arabia. I frankly think that Nbs weapons matter much more to him than his visa. And so what i would argue is that we should recalibrate. Our security partnership with the saudis. I if they're going to be in the business of chopping up dissidents or targeting them all around the world and we shouldn't be selling them weapons and so. I think the administration is right now. Having debate about what our security partnership looks like and if we make changes to that well. It looked like a personal sanction on. Mvs you'll have a big impact on him and his priorities. Senator chris murphy. Thanks for making time tonight.

Who is the international community?
"Myanmar's progress towards democracy. During the two thousand and ten with nobel peace laureate aung sang suu as de facto head of government was widely understood as a good news. Story this week myanmar's military. The top madore decided that the democratic experiment had proceeded far enough claiming fraud in the most recent they threw a coup. D'etat seized power. Back and returned san suu now. Tarnished as an accessory to the tottenham does own recent accesses to detention the international community has responded predictably and in famous correctly demanding respect for the election results the restoration of constitutional order and so forth. Also this week. Us president joe biden in his first speech on foreign policy since taking office declared that america was ready willing and able to resume its traditional self awarded role as lead of that international community. But at this point what actually is the international community who decides what it thinks and are there really any penalties for defying or ignoring it. This is the foreign desk. But you're now seeing two sets of institutions governing although it's questionable how much actual authority the people without guns have to force their parliamentary decisions. At this point. The burmese military should relinquish power. They have seized release the advocates and activists and officials they have detained suspected. Criticism from western countries has relatively little direct. But it's not that they don't care at all it's noteworthy that they've gone to just extraordinary lengths to create alibis covers for the coup the very few occasions when you say that sanctions all the threat of sanctions hadn't affect i think would be the ending of the apartheid period south africa but they require cooperation and agreement among any state that has major economic relations with a particular state that is really under threat of sanctions. So that's pretty rare frontier. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew muller joined first of all by amen taunt a reporter based in yang-gon well first of all let's try and make sense of what has been occurring this week. How did the first hours of the coup ataur unfold as you experienced it. Was there a heightened military presence in the streets was a news broadcast social media alerts. How do they establish power. It's not like they lack practice this by now. Sure so the first couple hours were extremely chaotic. One was quite sure what was happening. Although most people had figured out that there was a coup so basically most people woke up on monday not being able to use their phones so there are some cards. Weren't giving them service. There was some rewards that depending on which company you are with. You have some level of service depending on where you are in the country. You had some notable service. But for me i couldn't call out and i didn't have any mobile data. Luckily i have wifi at home. Which is not true for a lot of people but yeah in the first few hours in django that weren't really military much of a military presence as far as i understand. Although in the days leading up to the coup there were some quite frightening pictures of tanks in yanko near military installations and what has gone. Felt like since how much of what was already passing for normal life i guess given the pandemic but how much is the feel of the city changed since the coup d'etat. Everyday's a little bit different. So the first day i went out to the markets just alexi what i could over here talk to people because you know people were getting online and a first a couple hours. Not everyone knew. The markets were busier than normal. There were more men. The normal people seem like they were ignoring the one person per household rule a lot more than they were. Previously people are largely ignoring the rules at this point in the pandemic here. But yeah like you just saw a lot of groups of people as opposed to the person who cooks which is generally a woman here but a couple hours in so maybe around nine. Ten people started panic buying especially rice. A lot of rice shops ran out of rice quite early in the morning. You know they generally never run out that bryce they usually are quite. we'll start but by the evenings. The supply chain was flowing again and had sort of compensated and the streets emptied out after a while but there was a while where people were trying to rush the banks. All the banks shut the atm set down. And then people try to. The gold shops and the gold shops started shutting down this
Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is sentenced in Moscow to 3½ years in jail
"The last several weeks we've been talking about Alexei of all need russia and anti corruption activist. Opposition leader general thornton flattery. Putin side last august navalny was poisoned. He was nearly killed by putin's goons. He had to germany for treatment but decided to come back to moscow A few weeks ago where he was immediately arrested there were big protests over the weekend know today a russian court sentenced need to an additional two and a half years in prison for what was essentially a parole violation You know that this verdict is a joke because you know some of these alleged parole violations happened when vanni was recovering. Germany from being poisoned Near the end of the trial in the ball and denounce putin and said he will go down in history as vladimir the poisoner underpants the The recent east. That is the poison us against vol. Knee was reportedly put on his underwear. That's how they apply to him so as we were preparing to record hundreds of of riot. Police have filled up red square and other places in central moscow. Tony blinken. the secretary of state has called for nevada's immediate. and unconditional. release ben. This seems like a a big change in terms of how putin is dealing with navan. The this trial was like big and it was public Previously russian authorities hadn't punished to develop nearly a severely. He'd gotten house arrest. He'd gotten sure sentences but you know the thinking then seemed to be they didn't wanna martyr him Now he may be locked up for several years. I'm sure that biden's national security team is like debating all of this as we speak. What do you think. The range of options are here to respond. And like what are you. What do you recommend they do. Well you know. I think the sense Again is a human tragedy nevada other. He knew he knew the risks is taking and he may have wanted to force the issue And he's proven the massive support he has and i think this will only increase the support You know because people see that the unfairness and corruption of of this of this ruling. I think for biden again. It's related to what we said that he can't there's no action he can take right now. That's going to force russia to release alexi of only what he can do is shine. A spotlight never stopped talking about alexey navalny every single time that anything comes up with russia election of all these case should be front and center. The world's attention needs to stay on his case every single day that he's in prison. I think more importantly because people can talk about sanctions. But we've mentioned this on the show. Before what has alexei navalny really honed. In on that has resonated the russian public it is vladimir putin's corruption that video showed of this billion dollar palace that putin clearly felt like he got caught because he's been denying it and now they they tried some saying. Oh no it's my hotel when it's pretty obviously bodmer putin's billion dollar house that he goes to hang out and and i think what joe biden can do. In the biden administration is continued. The work that alexi only was doing an revealing vladimir putin's corruption in spotlighting that corruption in high leading for people. Just how much money this is worth. And where his money is and how his money flows through the financial
Russia arrests 2,700 during wide protests backing Navalny
"And police who are out in force, Russians have taken to the streets for a second weekend of protests. They're calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexi Navalny. One human rights monitoring group says at least 2000 protesters have already been arrested. Of only was jailed two weeks ago after returning from Germany, where he had been receiving treatment after being poisoned with a chemical weapon. MPR's Moscow correspondent Lucian Kim was at the protest in Russia's capital and he joins us now. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. Demonstrators early today gathered outside the prison where Navalny is being held. There were plans to protest outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency, the F S, B and Moscow. What can you tell us? Well, not a lot happened outside the FSB. The city authorities closed off metro stations in the center of the city and didn't let any pedestrians into the area. Navalny's team was hoping for a symbolic protest. Since they accused the FSB of trying to poison him. And when it became clear the downtown area was off limits. One of Navalny's AIDS who's outside the country started tweeting the locations of other rallying points around the city, including the prison where he's now being held. I mean, despite the certainty of arrests and crackdowns at today's protest, people still poured into the streets. I mean, there were extraordinary scenes. What if people tell you? Well, I've covered a lot of protests in Moscow and I have to say this one was the scariest I've been to riot Police were everywhere, and I saw how they just pluck someone off the street on arrest him and put him in a police truck. Probably the most famous demonstrator arrested today was Navalny's wife, Yulia. I met one protester. Her name is Alina McCarley Amara. She's an architect. And she told me she was scared, but that she had no choice but to come out. In the Russia the government is suppressing anyone who has a new opinion difference from a very narrow point of view. The propaganda makes you feel alone. That's why we came here to show that we are not alone that there are many of us. She said she actually doesn't not does not support Alexey Navalny as a politician, but she respects him for representing people who don't agree with Vladimir Putin and I heard that same opinion from other protesters. I spoke to You know, Um, these protests have been notable for their spread across a very vast country. We saw that last week. Do we know yet what's been happening outside of Moscow? What we do. We're getting reports from around Russia. It's already Sunday night on Russia's Pacific Coast activists are reporting hundreds of arrests. As you mentioned there'd been clashes with police a lot of really rough detentions and reports of police using Tasers. This is hugely significant because of protest has truly become nationwide. In the past, rallies were often focused on Moscow and ST Petersburg. That's two Navalny's credit. He always saw himself as a national politician. He spent a lot of time traveling around Russia and building a support network there. And in fact, he was traveling in Siberia when he was poisoned. Well, let me ask you this. I mean, if that is the case in these protests are igniting across the country. Does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat? What little we see how the government is responding right now, with a really heavy hand, not Brooking any dissent? What's a different from earlier protests is that they've basically put all of Navalny's AIDS in jail. And they're also going after Russian journalists who are trying to cover these protests. The Kremlin likes to say that these protests are small and that the majority is for Putin. But when you consider that the literally shut down central Moscow to today and filled it with police You kind of get the impression that Vladimir Putin is feeling a little nervous. That's NPR's

The Straw That Broke The Bucatini Supply Chain
"Today on the show. I am joined by planet money producer. Alexi horowitz ghazi and alexi. Hello first of all parody cardiff alexi. You've brought us a kind of pasta mystery. Not just any pasta. Cardiff dismissed all about a very particular. Pasta shape called bucatini. It's basically just spaghetti with a hole in it in. The story comes to us. By way of a self avowed bucatini fanatic new york magazine writer. rachel handler. When did you know that you were bucatini. Hat or bucatini bopper. Look what do we call ourselves. Ivan bucatini had because. I just think it's cute but i definitely didn't grow up in a bucatini household by any means we are definitely spaghetti. Family the mystery part of all of this began. When rachel started to notice last spring that her beloved bucatini seemed to be getting harder and harder to find at our local grocery stores in new york until eventually it seemed to be totally gone and then one day in the fall rachel was on the phone with her also pasta obsessed mother who lives in chicago and her mom kind of mentioned off hand that she was having the exact same problem. Racial literally haven't been able to find bucatini anywhere and she was talking specifically about to check out. The check is a one hundred and forty year old italian pasta company so when she said that i was like slow mo i was like because i thought it was like a new york problem like a very classic. Sort of like you know history. I can't find my bucatini. Whatever like who cares. But then i was a coli though. Sorry can i swear. Oh yeah okay okay. Great it's like holy if you can't find it that means that this is a real issue. And then she told me that she had actually reached out to the customer service department to check. Oh i just sent them an email. it's a classic move. It was like full of typos. Which is like a way. That mom's ready meals. But her email said i am a huge fan of bucatini pasta huge in all caps. I have not been able to find it for many weeks at any store. It is my favorite pasta cook than the sentences in all caps with four questionnaires. Are you still making it. Please tell me how to get some not too long afterwards. Rachel's mom gets a voicemail from a regional dicicco sales representative named brian. And then when. She played me voicemail from brian. I was like holy like this goes deep. There is a cover up like something weird is going on. Brian told rachel mom that she was likely having trouble. finding check. Oh bucatini. Because of an fda hiccup the hecker exactly for some reason the fda which is the food and drug administration seemed to have put a hold on the import of check. Obu katini and now. Brian was telling rachel's mom to sit tight and check the shelves a few months down the road and the fact that this little pasta mystery seemed to reach all the way to the federal government. That was something that had dogged. Journalists like rachel could not in good conscience. Look away from. This is the turning point for me. Yeah the next day. Rachel pitched the story to her editor but in the back of her mind. She wasn't sure it would go anywhere. And i'll just felt so big. And i think all of us figured nothing would really come event. At least i did. I was like i'm never going to figure out what's going on but began calling to check. Oh i reached out to like five or six different people. Email and phone call and voicemail and no one got back to me and then i was like something in santa's happening and i don't know and at that point i was like there's there's a story hammond
"alexi" Discussed on Talkhouse Podcast
"On today's show. We have multi hyphen extraordinary. Like happened in conversation with actress. Tiny and those two are. I discovered cousins. I actually have a bit of a back story about how i know it. Lexi our paths cross for the first time about seven years ago in minibus a small film festival in the pacific northwest. Where the film told is a baobab tree made by first time director. Jeremy tiger was playing as a festival was winding down a bunch of folks including myself.

Her from. That meeting was that she was smart. Peppy and super friendly and that while the rest of us had a nice relaxing walk. Alexi banded off for a long run through the forest since that meeting. Alexi has flourished on multiple fronts in ways that are beyond impressive. She has made two more films teicher.

"alexi" Discussed on Ali on the Run Show
"Was also probably why I wrote Inbetween Olympic cycles and not like the year of analytics for example, because I had more time to. Really. Commit to the writing process and then I would let my thoughts like slow from there and I have a tendency to hyper focus like what I'm really interested in something like maybe running or something that I'm writing I can get in and like really right and produce many many word. Stella then get later whittled down into the most important words that you will then read eventually paint us a picture of Alexi at work when you're writing is there a certain spot you to sit in? Do you have like a cozy writing outfit are what does it look like? What is Alexi Alexi on I almost on the typewriter, but we don't use those wish. Right, off Alexi. At the laptop was that look like yes, it is a laptop it will typewriter would be really fun though so I have a music either writing playlist. So I listen to music while I write in it's pretty. It's not overly wordy songs, but it's just gets me in like a flow and then often read other books to almost as like a warmup. So I do think writing like running something that you can warm up for him prepare for. How you're feeling that day, you could always rely on your warm ups and so for me, I'll pick up a couple of memoirs that will have by my side or other books just to get non conversational words and sentence structures flowing through my head. So the way we talk is one way and we often I think use like only a handful of words in our general conversation. But the way we ride is different right and so I think reading these books just gets my mind in that other sewn and the music helps keep me in that zone. I'll always have drink spy side You know like probably some sports-type electrolyte drinks you can, but also coffee and like all the goodies snacks, and then I'll just like be in all be sitting at a chair concern chair and wearing comfortable close but not always in the same place like I wrote a good chunk of this memoir my honeymoon we spent a month in Italy and Jeremy I found this coffee shop in Venice that we go to every day and it was like bookstore coffee shop wine bar and I it was a children's bookstore actually and I just love being there and I wrote for hours their. Weight, it's a children's bookstore with a wine bar. That's amazing. Yeah. I think the kids can read and the parents can have their wine or the desserts or the coffee, and it was like an all hours place. So you could go in the morning have more breakfast type stuff and you can go late at night and watch people lock by Salihu go at all hours of the day and it was like a lovely place to to like whole up and write it was it was wonderful. My Gosh that sounds so dreamy. I'm picturing it I like this visual. We need to be able to travel again, I, WanNa go your home and that, and that was right after my first marathon. So I wasn't obligated to train and that did really help because I can right when I'm in heavy training but it's just you know your time is your energy is distributed differently. So that time I felt like I had this infinite. This infinite endurance for writing because I wasn't really running. It was very nice for a little while to like. Trend translate that endurance into writing. So as you are writing this witch sections chapters essays, which came the easiest to you're the most naturally or kind of flowed and were there parts that were harder to right? Yeah. So the book is a lot like, for example, a running is a part of the book, but it's more of a it's a backdrop for some of the parts of my life and explorations emotional evolutions, and it's like vehicle and I think writing about running though was fun and I enjoyed that because I was just off of I had just come off my Olympic experience a new it very well also knew that some of those experiences. people will see from the outside but have not variance from the inside of the village. For example, toes really a pleasure to write about world that I knew would would be interesting to people also that surprised me when I encountered them. So it was fun to to write them and also see them through other people's eyes while riding on. The the early childhood stats some of this stuff with my mom I was that was you know it's I'm emotionally available to write about it but I still had never yet written about it, and so I think those are two different things like intellectualize ing something knowing it inside, and then trying to communicate it in a way that honors the story and also Is effectively translating experience into somebody who doesn't know me mind. So finding the words, I, think that is the most challenging part of writing is finding a word finding the words that both capture Mike Experience and also allows someone else to experience it themselves. and Are you someone who once you finish writing in essay you're like, okay good. Send it off or are you going back through combing through every word thinking about it thinking about it? What's your mindset usually? So Jeremy was very helpful Jeremy as my husband and creative partner in sometimes helping me understand when something was or wasn't clear to people. So we always had an internal filter going on which. We always do with all of our work and that was helpful for me and I did try to bring the essays to a place where I didn't know what else I could possibly do with them before sending them to my editing team. This I think that's the way. That's the you're having the most integrity with the process if you do your very best and then ask for the people whose. whose. Expertise is to bring it to the finish line to do their very best and what was fun was learning What the emotional arc of the book was, as we wrote because I had these disparate chapters that were all really great on their own but just finding where's the bigger arc whereas the bigger arc year and how can we tell? A story that. You know through these essays that. Will resonate the most and also. You know we had to kill our darlings to delete an just scrap some entire chapters in that happened. In. That's okay. That's why it's a memoir. It's not a I guess a biography you know it's not everything it is it is a select. Is A curated like arc of my life that I think tells the complete story in the best way. Possible. So, one thing that I love the Tagline of the book is so good chasing dreams befriending pain and other big ideas, which is so enticing to me I'm especially curious about the befriending pain part. Are we talking physical pain like mild twenty of a marathon or more opening.
"alexi" Discussed on Work in Progress with Sophia Bush
"Hi Everyone Sophia. Bush here welcomed a work in progress where I talked to people who inspire me about how they got to where they are and where. They think they're still going.
