"Message will go to our producer, and he will get that message to us as well. We also have our two adviser standing by off the air this week. We've got Justin Asco Ari Goldberg. You can reach it, Justin or Ari by phoning for one, too. For 34 0999 That's for 124340999 and they will be taking calls until noon today. So if you've got the follow up questions about anything we discussed on the show question of a little more personal nature. A question that might require an answer that little more than the minute or two that we can give it out here on the radio. Give those folks call and you can reach them in for 12 for three for 0999 Well, Jim, we do have a number of email questions We want to get to and we do appreciate everybody sending those in this is from an and and has ah, very good question that probably a lot of listeners may be in the same situation. And it sounds like she is either a teacher or works for the government. She has a retirement in the S E. R s retirement pension plan. And because of maybe you could talk a little bit about because of the low interest rates that provides a large potential lump sum. So she said she has a large present value dollar amount in the retirement plan. She's still working. She, uh, doesn't seem like she's got direct descendants of beneficiary for the account are her nieces and nephews. She rightly says that they face a 15% inheritance tax. She say she is single and Children. When she passes, she's heard us mention a way to set up a charitable trust and provide income for the nieces and nephews. And also benefit of charity. And there could be some tax benefits in there, especially when you factor in the secure act and things like that. So Any advice to an on Iand again. Thank you for that. E mail, and there's a lot that you can do. Now let me break it down into two parts number one, and I presume if you have a large Retirement account that you've been employed under the state system prior to 2011 and it's a significant date. Um, it's because you have well. When you're defined benefit. Plan. Uh, that's the formula based on your average salary and years of service, etcetera. There have been contributions on that side by you. Those contributions are very simple. And if your long long long term employees prior to 1986 Some of those contributions could be tax free. No, you have the opportunity to recover your contribution plus the earnings and then transfer that do what's called a direct roll over into an IRA. Now, if you've had a defined contribution play Uh, that you've contributed to this is in addition to the pension. That can go to on Iraq, and it may be a better position. Because many school systems are annuity contracts, very high internal expenses. So let's deal with that. Once it's in and I array You can name anybody or anything as a beneficiary. What a niece and a nephew unless they're within 10 years of your age. Or not. Designated a literal beneficiaries. And they would have to redeem the IRA within 10 years of inheritance under the secure You could name a charitable trust. As a primary beneficiary. Rory contingent Beneficiary. Man, then they the income payments. Could be extended to the life of the individual. Your nation. I'm trying to do this quickly. This side of the inheritance would be subject to the Pennsylvania dared and stacks, the remainder of the money and the bulk of the money that you have a plan. Is the remainder of a defined contribution. You actually have four options. That you need to consider at the point of retirement. And that is the single life payout. A single life with a guaranteed return. Of your candle you to your name Beneficiary. You can do a survivorship percentage of 50 or 85% or you can cast myself. Now subject to the method that you elect they could avoid then staying the inheritance tax and the remainder of the Premium payments. I'm sorry. The pension payments To your survivor. But if you elected the portion of a single life payout with the guaranteed some You can name any buddy or any Trust, a zit beneficiary that asset. Then again, charitable trust portion could extend for the lifetime of to your niece and nephew. And generally, those payouts are no less than for no more than 6%. And then you have to decide. Who gets to pick the cherry. Uh, when you need your nephew would pass way. Do you want to pick that? What do you want them to do it and they can be the trustee of their own charitable trust. So It is a very complex issue. Hopefully, this gives you some guidance. Um there's a lot of work you have to do. And it is not a plain vanilla answer and again, if well, You're kind enough to email us this not answering it to your need or satisfaction. Robinson. Another email or, you know, will contact your affair. But there's lots of options, particularly for a single person. And you can Enough. You died in service. Then they would be eligible for a lump sum. They defined benefit. Uh, plan that you have a cumulative But, uh, then naked transfer that to an IRA etcetera. So there's there's um There's a lot of that. I'm some. It's taxable, and this is certainly one of those areas that Is extraordinarily complex. That could work out. Well and everybody's favor but does require a great deal of calculation and coordination and Not something that um and that really anybody should attempt on their own or try to download a form from the Internet and do it on their own. It does require ah lot of thought of a lot of calculation, a number of legal diarrhea. Take a look at the options and then sleep on it for a week or two or whatever, and take a look at them again. Right, But it could be very advantageous, especially with a secure act, especially with non linear. Where's um and especially for folks that are terrible, charitably inclined. You know, it really could turn out to be a win win win, sometimes with charity and A, uh, somewhat hesitant to say this to folks, but it is a reality that You can also be strategic in your charitable gifting. If your niece and nephew are in a in an industry or a business that could benefit from certain charities, whether it's Directly involved or some sort of services to line up charities that line up well with their business. I don't think there's anything necessary absolute ethically wrong without there's not anything legally wrong with that. But you know that should. There could be some strategy in the charity. But you could also leave everything to, you know, a good charity something like animal friends. So a lot of AA lot of thought needs to go into this a lot of a lot of work, but In many, many cases, this could again a ll. The effort could pay off, especially if there is a significant balance. They're so great question. These are the things that we get kind of excited about because there's lots of opportunity for opportunity. Um, so hopefully that, uh, answered the question. If not, and please reach out to us, and we could set up a time to, uh Discuss it in a little bit more detail. We need to take a break. When we get back from our break will return to our phone callers. John hang on for about 35 30 seconds, 45 seconds. We'll be back to you soon, so we'll be right back after this.

The Troubling Issues Regarding Police Use of Force
"As for the police conduct that's did set off these wider protests. History has ben with us a long time. The repeated use of excessive force and killing. which begins incidents, but then worse becomes formerly legitimised in a US criminal justice system that allows and defends it. And we can report that to you tonight as a fact. Because the facts show vast majority of the allegations against police in these instances result in no firings. Let alone criminal charges in the few cases, the duly to a charge take fifteen per year over ten years. It's about ten per year of charges of manslaughter or higher and the convictions for those very rare charges I can tell you. are even more rare. There's a bowling green professor Philip Stinson. He tracks all on-duty incidents that resolving death with policing and he found over several years there were literally zero such convictions in the whole country. You widen out to a fifteen year period of time that he used in his studies. Five officers in deadly on-duty shootings were convicted of murder. The reason why that's all lopsided on the far right of your screen, and this is so vital to what's happening in. America right now is that four of those five were convictions from after 2016. So what little change we've seen came after the black lives matter movement, and after the spike in cellphone, video recordings and other way to say. Be Killing continues. It was rarely ever caught or punished, and the few handful of changes I just showed you. They have come at the margins when there is a combination of an extremely incriminating video and public pressure and often yes, people in the streets so well know law abiding citizen is going to support crime or violence. When we stop and listen to the history and listened to those who risked their lives for social change, while also advocating peaceful methods for change. Tonight as we look over everything that's happening. I want to tell you. It is worth listening. Dow, even they. Put Riots

Jeez as high off life bows top. The list with one hundred fifty three thousand equivalent album units in the US earned in the weekend. Dean May twenty-first according to Nielsen Music. M R. C. Data. Now that's futures biggest week in terms of units earned for any of his solo had drake collaboration. Once that was obviously a lot bigger but still for for for a solo album. It's his biggest week. So congrats to future most of high off life starting some was actually driven by streaming tippety with sixteen thousand of its first week coming from album sales and those sales were largely driven by merchandise album. Bundles sold via futures web store. And also some signed albums that he was selling through the same store and unlike last week's number one album Now's good intentions. Which we talked about on last week's show which had one hundred merch bundles. Helping its first week. Future only had a handful relative handful. Just seventeen helping his first week so congrats to future and next week. It actually looks like another rap. Album could lead the list At least in terms of early forecasting it looks like Ghana's new album WANNA might start atop the list and if it does start at number one it would mark gunness first number one album. Would you call that a number one for Ghana a WANNA GONNA a one hundred WANNA on never mind? Oh boy. I like that album a great deal. Well let's talk about rain on me. Man. It came out last. Friday may twenty second one week ahead of the release of Gaga Matica? And I can't love it more. I love this song. I tweeted yesterday that I listened to it three times when I was on a jog. It gave me a lot of you know a lot of inspiration. What do you feel about rain on does it? Did it give you life where you screaming? Ask the top of your lungs as you were jogging. I mean internally I was for sure I you know I'm I'm all in on a dance pop Kaga you know and and I again as we talked about repeatedly on the show this year like the fact that dance pop and disco. Pop is making this return it. I think it's awesome and I think I think people are are rightfully excited by new Gaga
"ari" Discussed on The Beat with Ari Melber
"Much guessing music playing. Thank you very much. That was the ephemeral is right there. Shout out and the only thing better than the first draft is every draft. That comes after so. We are second draft Jeremy L. Harris now with cigarette. And how long it's GonNa take what survivors right now. What are you sipping on what you smoke? What are you doing to keep yourself creative? You would tell us about playwright and everything else a judge. Everyone jumped back into more people in the room. Now that we did five minutes ago I love that well so it's one eleven here. I'm in London right now and One of the things I've been doing creative is living fully nocturnally one of the things that's making all of my friends. Go crazy that they're waking up at nine. Am like it's normal day and then having to exist inside of a day where they can't go outside or do any of their normal activities whereas remaining. I figured it out and I'm like no wake up at four. Pm get good a good four or five hours of some time and then right when the sun's going down and you want to get motivated to move again you can't because it's dark outside you. Oh it might as well just walk let flicks so look. I'm not. I'm not minimizing by comparison. Incarceration but what you are describing. Real talk is very similar to because I I do my work. I report and talk to. People is very similar to what I've heard some inmates talk about. Which is you will be raking the walls if you let them to find you and say oh. I'm in this room so I'm going to read in this dramatic writing this dramatic people. Tell me I'm GonNa pray in this room and then I'm not breaking against the wall now obviously not saying yes. But you're saying for your creative process you're like. I'M NOT GONNA run around and pretend that it's a normal day you're gonNA at night. You be home tonight exactly and I really exhilarate about that. So I I have not left my apartment. I'm saying this really quarters department in Finsbury Park apartment. I was staying in right before I play got shut down in London and decided not to get the plane because I didn't want to risk Kobe Especially because the only places like go would be back in Virginia with my grandmother. Who is so I WANNA exposed to To La where my boyfriend lives who has severe asthma Manuela exposed to it? And then my -partment where my roommate is living with his partner right now and that's really fun. Being with another couple in court in the middle of New York sounds like its own version of. How will shout out to chateau Gerald's boyfriend earlier in his time? Maybe he'll come up in the comments. You know Wayne says about asthma. Jeremy what does he say he says? I am wheezy baby but I only. Gosh wow what is everything okay? Yeah everything's fine. I'm just breaking this apartment as an AIRBNB. Just break it. Sorry we're we're getting the real bugs me. Tell everyone who's in ear. As I mentioned earlier I was excited. Jeremy Harris the playwright on. You're seeing him right now. Live from London. He's been on the beat. He's been all over. The place made a very interesting play. That went to Broadway. Now you're doing I read online so it's not a secret that HBO Pre Cova came to you. And You I thought you said your first answer was no and then it evolved. Do you want to tell us about that? Yeah I mean so I am someone who came to do theatre to do theater and I lived in. La for six years. And it like attempted to become Lena Dunham there. I was like I'm going to be the black gave Lena Dunham. I'M GONNA make a show like girls and it'll be major and everyone was like we don't give a fuck about you and we don't care about what you had to say right now. So no thank you and so I was like okay. Jeremy like why are you trying to fall in love with medium that doesn't want you NBA? You didn't start out wanting to be a part of like you always wanted to be a theater person. So re engage with the theater. Go to New York like take it seriously so I did that and when I made that decision I said I wasn't going to be a playwright that abandoned the theater in order to be the new because a lot of playwrights had seen in the mid two thousand mainly because the financial crisis and how much everything changed For the economics being living playwright. Thank you know when Tillerson Williams was writing? Plays you got put up the Ritz Carlton when you're doing tech and got to stay there for months while you're working on your show you got eight weeks of Rehearsal Etcetera. That are real paychecks. Now that doesn't happen for playwrights playwrights. Don't make money unless they do theater army of TV or film and then they stopped writing for the theatre. I was like Jeremy figure out a way to working leader and make a living in the theater. And don't leave and and then. Hbo came to me after slave. Play at a couple other organizations came to me in one it's translate planes movie or TV. Show and I said No. Thank you Because called slave played for reason on play would make like a good netflix reality. Show I mean I think they already tried that with. Love is blind and I didn't get that again I I I just wanted to keep the play situated in its own space you know. I think that there's something important about that. And so I moved on from all of those offers. Hbo Came Back to me. Was like we would really like to offer you a Of a full deal and guys like this is so kind mazing. But I'M GONNA have to say now because what's most important to me as theater and the only way to do it if I don't know you guys were going to invest in eater world. So thank you by in the left. And let's pause on real quick and folks listen. It's this Jeremy O'hare successful playwright talking about working in the creative field in. Hbo When you said that. Will you being Jeremy saying no? Were you being Jeremy Negotiate? I was being Jeremy saying now like I was literally just like 'cause it's a thing in my mind. It was such a thing that no one say yes to because no one's ever happened before amd because you're kind of someone who does what they do well feel does TV well. Yes and you're saying I want supporter. I want you to be involved in this other industry and it could be theater or it could be a go farm and it's like no disrespect to go farming but like that's not really the business there. Yeah exactly even even if you are wait for it the go-to Broadway yet. I think Tony Kushner has that. Has that That crown but maybe one day but yeah the the people. Hbo Came Back to me and they were like great. Yeah we'll do it. What do you want and I was like what what do you want? I was like well if I'm not going to be in the theater community for two years three years working on some TV. Show with you. Guys that I want to make sure that the nutrients I took from theater. I was able to get back to new plays so they said cool. What is that look like? I gave them a really big number that I thought they say no to. They said Yes to it. And so now. I have this fun that I can invest in new clay's new writers and theaters around the city in to keep the soil replenish with nutrients or at least the nutrients of capital. I love that. So what what do you look for in the artist's that you're supporting through that well I mean I think that one of the things that's always a fact of the theater and why everyone was so excited this week. That Michael Jackson won the Pulitzer Prize is the fact that generally institutional support does not come to work that is complicated experimental and deeply honest Ray Like most fields dishonesty pays really well. That's why so many people watch Fox News but like when you are working in an honest liked rigourous manner. It's difficult to get financial support for that. And so I want to be able to support the next like writer who wants to write a musical as fucked up in gorgeous as a strange loop or play right that wants to work on a play that says like discombobulating to the senses as is got his by Lucia Harris or find a way to invest in a playwright like Adrienne Kennedy. Who is one of our foremost American playwrights and is an eighty nine year old black woman who now lives in Virginia and I want to go to her and be like. Here's a fifty thousand dollars. Do you want to write something and have it? Produce and have the money to help pay for the production of this eighty. Nine Euro Woman's Expressive complicated gorgeous. Play that people would probably be too afraid to put the capital so that brings you something that you said about slave play which was initially not only controversial but it was whether you want to call it. Contested dispute or attacked sight unseen. And then I got to see it when I was getting ready to interview on TV and it would just blew me away. And I liked theater but it really was extraordinary and I'm going to continue to stick about it in a no spoiler format but it was like. Whoa and then you later said that The work want yeah which is not guaranteed when the work can be shared because the very inherent definition of a clay of theater performing. Yes you can read it. But the inherent nature of a play particular New News. People got to see it. Yes and not. Everyone can see it for all the reasons. Even though you've talked about how. You're working to broaden that out. So what did you mean when you said? The work wanted for those joining us. I'll do what we radio. Call the reset. I got Jeremy L. Harris. The playwright with me live from London just like Ross. He has a flat in London. Recross for my people out over a flat out in London. But what did you mean when you said? Oh you made this controversial about race and sex and sexuality and slave references and all that and it won't work I mean I think it's the fact that like I. I was able to have a play that in most other seasons would be sort of ignored or derided or put to the margins of coacher and because a lot of the right people saw it at the right time they were able to recognize if there was something really exciting. Interesting inside of the ideas of this play and because the ideas were good And New in some ways and fresh in their presentation The work attracted a bigger audience than a play. Like that normally gets like slave play was a play that was I got Google alerts from Japan Germany France Ethiopia like all over the country for small off Broadway play. That was meeting two hundred bodies a night and people were not only excited about the idea of the propagation of the play but they were excited about the text of a play. Like slade. Play has been Is about to enter. Its third printing right now that it's the fastest selling play. Tc G. HAS HAD SINCE APRIL AMERICA. Apparently and that's really insane. An amazing Because it does mean that like be ideas inside of the work one in audience over and not a lot of things that That can win an audience right like it wasn't a celebrity in the play. It wasn't like I had you know Jake Gyllenhaal. And LUPITA on the inside the display the play mirrored at near two workshop with eight people. That generally aren't huge celebrities in the world of not elite eater but like the world you'd have no disrespect but it wasn't a patriotic hip hopper. Yeah it was not right people. I came into Hamilton. I mean when it was still at the public like early like Ari. You like the founding fathers..
"ari" Discussed on The Beat with Ari Melber
"This is a podcast exclusive. We read your comments and ratings many of you said you like it when we go beyond the daily show the interview clips. Here we go. This is an exclusive pod interview with. Playwright Jeremy Oh Harris. We've been doing a little more of these type of interviews. Due to social distancing this was originally recorded on instagram live. You hear references to comment and this and that but really it was just like we would do on any special podcast exclusive. Because Jeremy and I got the chance to go in depth he was joining me from London where I should mention. It was late at night and he was having fun. Smoking handled tobacco cigarette and we discussed a lot of things. His controversial and groundbreaking work as a playwright his friendship with Riana including his views of racialist policing of the theater. Why he thinks tiger king is basically graded on a curve. Because we're all lockdown his optimism about during this pandemic. I hope you really listened closer to that part because I don't know about you but sometimes all of this weighs me down. It can wear us down and then you start to feel like beyond the things that are bad which nobody denies you start to feel like maybe things are never going to get better and Jeremy O'Hara's here gives his views on. Why even with what we're going through a lot of what's happening can still spark and trigger and get going all kinds of important artistic cultural and yes political conversations and reforms so based on what you guys have told me. I think you might enjoy this. Stay tuned for my interview with Playwright Jeremy L. Harris. What's up everybody at first? You don't succeed you try again. Although I think we were succeeding I was having a great time talking to Jeremy. Harris is about to come up in here so come on in here with us. Welcome everybody that you was.
Coronavirus masks a boon for crooks who hide their faces
"The traditional stick about fit of masks and gloves has turned into go to wear for almost everyone because of the corona virus and that's presenting some challenges to law enforcement the way the FBI tells it Williams ari Lopez but on a mask walked into a Connecticut convenience store looking like a typical pandemic here shopper pulled out a gun and rob the place to use the same memo four times over eight days before his arrest in March two minutes surgical masks in New York's apple duck race track got away with robbing workers of a quarter million dollars law enforcement says it's impossible to estimate just how many criminals are taking advantage of the corona virus to commit crimes the people with masks and disposable gloves have found their way into more and more crime reports across the country I'm Julie Walker
Will Covid-19 have a lasting impact on the environment?
"The pandemic hit air travel in the US is down ninety five percent the morning rush hour. Traffic report has become unnecessary. Many of you are asking what impact this is having on the environment. So Lauren. Summer is with us. She covers climate change for NPR. And it's good to have you back. Lauren Hi Ari. Let's start with a question that a lot of listeners have asked this one comes from Walker in Ames Iowa the oil consumption due to know car travel and almost no air travel must be much less. Is this lack of carbon dioxide production low enough to meet the goals of the Paris accord is more than enough just to remind listeners? The goals of the Paris accord that was to keep global temperatures from going up two degrees Celsius with an aim of less than one point five degrees Celsius. What's the impact of this slowdown of the global economy? Lauren yeah so as you might expect is having an effect on global carbon emissions largely because demand for oil and coal has really fallen and this is all over not just the US. So scientists are starting to put out studies projecting. What would this look like by the end of the year? If this activity continues you know we all stay locked down a little bit and they're coming up with maybe an eight percent drop in carbon emissions for this year now okay. That would actually be unprecedented. I know it maybe sounds like a small number. That's bigger than the drops during the last recession or during World War Two. But here's the thing that is about. The level scientists save world needs to be cutting emissions every year until twenty thirty to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. That's you know that one point five degrees Celsius that you mentioned and I think scientists are also pointing out shutting down. The economy is not the way to reach. Those long-term emission cuts right. It's these bigger emissions changes like switching to renewable energy. Okay we got a lot of questions. Also about some of the short-term environmental impacts of the pandemic. This one comes from Lois in Raleigh North Carolina. Beautiful spring filled with crystal clear. Low humidity days here in North Carolina because having fewer cars on the road or the factories closed affect the weather but about the global shut down factories. Might that be affecting the weather. Here I've heard a lot of people wondering about this actually clearer. It is yes in a lot of cities gotten cleaner. People are driving less in some cities. I mean car. Traffic is down forty fifty percent. Planes are not flying either so that's actually helped improve local air quality but it is very important to say. The weather plays a huge role in your local air pollution. So if it rains you know it clears the air and the spring typically is not like the summer. It's not our worst season for air pollution. Other places actually though haven't really seen much of a drop because there are things like factories and refineries that are still emitting and trucks are still on. The Roads. Goods are still being delivered to stores. I understand you've been talking with some scientists who are studying the effect of having so few cars on the road and the what are they trying to understand exactly. Yeah I mean. This is a particular interest in cities that have really problematic air and in those cities. They have to try to figure out. What can we change to improve air quality? I mean this is actually kind of just a real world test of that one. Scientists told me that this would be like if in Los Angeles for example. A third of the cars on the road were switched to all electric cars. They don't burn gasoline. They get electricity and in California. A lot of that comes from solar and renewable. So it's cleaner. We have one listener. Who wants to know whether this pandemic could cause environmental damage? The here's Valerie in Arizona. We hear a lot about the air pollution being reduced but not much about the increased fast action Styrofoam especially in food service. What about the possible negative effects on the environment from the Corona virus? That's a good point. All of these restaurants that have switched to delivery or takeout. That's a lot of plastic. Yeah I think people are seeing a lot more containers. People are also seen masks and plastic gloves kind of thrown on the grounds. The pandemic is affecting our efforts to reduce plastic. Waste for example California. Just put a sixty day pause on. Its plastic bag ban. And that's out of concern for frontline workers right. They're the ones that are handling people's reusable grocery bags when they bring them into the store. Starbucks also is is not refilling those reusable coffee mugs for that same reason. It's about reducing exposure environmental groups. They've been largely supportive of these temporary measures because people's lives are on the line but I think they're keeping a close eye to make sure that these are actually just temporary measures and these larger initiatives to reduce plastic waste comeback at some point
How The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Affecting Environment
"Since the pandemic hit air travel in the. Us is down ninety five percent the morning rush hour. Traffic report has become a necessary.

You know they've been largely supportive of these temporary measures because people's lives are on the line but I think they're keeping a close eye to make sure that these are actually temporary measures. Right and these larger initiatives to reduce plastic waste kind of comeback at some point if you have a question for NPR's Lawrence Somerset to us at NPR dot org slash national conversation or on twitter use the HASHTAG NPR conversation and our next listener question comes from Laura Intel Keaton Alaska. What effect is this virus having on? Wildlife? I'm thinking of the fact that there's less people out and about and that means there's more room for wildlife I've seen some photos of a Lotta ducks resting in a parking lot while bores and sheep walking down the street. There's a lot of this on social media. Is it just that were home more? So we see the animals more or the animals actually coming out in places that they didn't ordinarily yeah. I mean that's hard to tell right. A lot of us are kind of just looking out the window. Maybe seeing things we didn't see before but some of it is a hoax. Right on social media you know. Maybe you saw those dolphins that were. They weren't actually there. Yeah I'm sorry about that but this they're actually real effects. Scientists are trying to study. You know I spoke to one wildlife rescue center in California. That said you know right now. It's seal and sea lion pumping season. You know every year some pups are concerned because of human interference like people or maybe dogs getting too close and so they're kind of that this year they merely a reprieve for them because some beaches are closed Another really good example is Wales. There's just less shipping traffic right now. And so. The oceans are less and wheels are very sensitive to sound. It's actually Something scientists after nine eleven because there was also a drop in shipping traffic and scientists could actually measure that stress hormones in right. Whales went down during that time period. Interesting we got a question about what's happening to environmental regulations during the pandemic Mike in Portland writes to the EPA suspended environmental rules so companies. Don't have to follow them any longer. Lauren Bizarre Policy Change while everyone was focused on the disease. Yeah in in March the EPA announced that it would not be finding companies if they failed to report their pollution data during the pandemic so an example of this might be that a refinery is reporting. It's air emissions to make sure that they're complying with Federal Clean Air Laws. The agency said that this needed to happen. Because the pandemic is making it harder for staff to collect the safety data and and do social distancing at the same time environmental groups really push back quite strongly. They felt this was too broad. It sent a message to industries. That maybe they would have the freedom to break environmental laws if no one was really checking during this time period just on our final moments so many of the changes were talking about depend on social distancing when the economy returns to something like normal are the gains. We've seen going to be reversed right so we all are starting to get back in our cars and fly. Go back to work industries ramping. Up You expect these of short-term Games are going to go away. I think there's some hope that the behavioral change though like maybe we'll all work from home it's possible. Npr Science correspondent Lawrence Summer. Thanks for answering these questions tonight. Thanks
The Advanced Style Challenge
"Am very excited about something. Called the advanced style challenge I had. I'm sure you're familiar with our Isa Cohen and his advanced style blog which is an I mean really. It's a movement at this point. I'm but for those of our listeners. Who MIGHT NOT? Know Ari is the brains behind. This incredible. I think started out. Maybe as a blog maybe it was a journal article or Like a column. I'm not really sure. But he has a website and a blog called advanced dot style. He's a photographer an author and he's the creator of this advanced style project which according to his website is devoted to quote capturing sartorial savvy of the senior set and he says that I feature people who live full creative lives they live life to the fullest age gracefully and continue to grow and challenge themselves and really sartorial splendor so many incredible men and women featured on like I said this blog website and his instagram at advance style so he posited a challenge to his followers it's called Hashtag advanced style challenge and he writes right now.

"Your absolutely anything to say. Initially the blockchain pat as you recall I started chatting. Unabashedly was in me. Talk about the block. Chain crypto thing beyond whatever it was twenty fourteen twenty fifteen whatever it may have been in for me looking at a blockchain side of things at the time I was falling back upon my experience in Capital Markets. Where trying to have multi party processing of financial transactions that had different life cycle events that were causing inefficiencies inefficiencies on capitalisation inefficiencies on risk management inefficiencies trade settlement and. I really saw potential in the technology But those early days were so crowded with wild claims and over amplified desires to change everything overnight in a capital system. That by design changes slowly right the appetite to change risk management settlement processing and things like that from a regulatory perspective. The slow if it's working even inefficiently that's better than an unknown thing that maybe more efficient lets you prune it. Let's ball Annette. Sort of view trickles to the folks in the Capital Market Space. The process banks clearing-houses changes. What happy but I was intrigued. Started down the path and certainly really proud of the time is spent working with the team at Exxon who I think is a great job pushing or the DOT story injury specifically. We've done a lot of things. There have started a crew valve those early day assumptions about potential this technology to improve things like CVs process in equities processing and other uses for me certainly being aware as you point out there were two businesses a trade block which is really market data into sees ems within the space and then separately the dot company. That was very focused on the inside but always sort of I over my shoulder looking at what's going on with trae blocking the trader in me just was constantly intrigued at the market structure of the way the markets were operating in a physical level. The lack of inter connectivity. The volatility all sorts of things that were very different than equities options futures rates. What have you? I was more familiar back my mind and I'd say you know on my own time a my own homework. I kept looking at the markets Personally and then just as the rest of the maturation process started to move from that period to two now in explosive growth in non US exchanges US exchanges various of understanding of the economic impact of something like non-sovereign store evaluate. Could have you for me. Just keeping a constant. I reached an apogee when the opportunity for Aris ex game. Just was the only thing I can see myself doing. Because it is truly the intersection of market structure not to build something different in. Do in the crypto space so now passively watching guilty more focused obviously on the criticized. Things unabashedly started Ornette let's talk about the the institutional landscape. Because there's there's I think three core things but you know fill in the gaps here for a more nuanced understanding three core things that have prevented institutional purchasing and the first step in the on ramp. Historically one has been data integrity which not only impacts compliance teams in terms of other things about marketing market. But much more importantly makes it difficult to prove. That trade was executed. Best bitter offer so sedated integrity and Is probably number one which trickles upstream to the changes are actually providing that data the second is institutional custody and just how a money manager can get their legal teams comfortable with actually making purchases in just evaporate the add some some type of hack and the third is On the regulatory side so you know in the US and most of western Connie's most parts That's been you know y you could argue largely solve at least for Bitcoin but other assets are gonNA be a slow and steady process to get institutions comfortable in reality. It doesn't really matter because the first step is almost always bitcoin. If you're talking about institutional allocations beyond that there's a whole slew of tools it needs to be built in in reality actually smooth that user experience for a large asset manager or a large bank or or per hedge funds and. We're just starting to see products like air sacs liquid back to building like civility coming market. That are are are satisfying adequately satisfying this niche and and I say niche Maybe like an air quotes because we all know that it should be. The biggest driver of long-term value in gross and ultimately the electrical contacts on the rest of the industry has given the enormous amount of money that has been sitting on the sidelines. Historically
Reviews: Resident Evil 3 and Final Fantasy 7 Remake
"Let's move on to what we're playing. As I mentioned last week I was playing three with. What's the matter we're excited to talk about? All the reflect I played resident evil three beats and even though I did enjoy a lot at the I ended up being ultimately pretty disappointed. I think compared to Ari too. It is half the game that Ari to was and you spend lot of the time sort of retraining. The same ground. That are a two did in those much. Less exploration much less puzzle solving so the whole experience was dislike points in your adult life. You would have been like thank God. This game is short and really fun just one moment in time and what you have more time at home and more time to play games. I don't care to play games. Amount of time spent a long office hours making house. I do not have time to play games. They have the exact same amount of time as I did. When my son was six months old always as a relief to have like a cool short action game I really liked it and I liked the compactness of it. That does not mean that. I think it's right to put it out like six dollar price tag but yeah I feel that way about a lot of games. It's just like you've got residential one reservoir to resonable threes like not. It's just not as substantial as as those first few games and this was their chance to fix that and add more to it. I don't know teenage. Did you ever beat it. I haven't played it yet. I'm missing out on for sure. No spoilers about it but I did like I did like the final boss fight in resonable three other. That was pretty cool. There's a lot of Good Gore. Do you like the part where those Insects lay eggs in your mouth. That was cool. I ever greater whatever the name for the new types the head crab things like go over your your head like a like A. It's like in Peter Jackson's King Kong. When the WORM GOBBLES UP Andy Circus? It's like that yeah. I hate that part. I know yeah parts back but the rest of US are at least seventy. Five percent of us are now playing final fantasy seven. Actually all this all right. Are we all playing that now Cool this doesn't happen very often. We're all in the same game seriously. Yeah it's great. I played through chapter one last night. Barely started chapter two when my son decided he was done with this whole sleeping thing. So that's all I want to play. You don't have to slam anymore. But I can't play when he's awake Sam. That's the problem. What about that little rocker that you have next to the game console? He looks looks. It is true it is true that you have the small window of time where he can't move around yet so just face them away from the TV. But we're we're well past that yes anyway. I can't speak to as much. I liked the first chapter. It's very very linear very hand holding. You don't really get freedom to do much but from what I got to experience the combat system. I liked it bouncing back and forth between the characters Tina. You're much further along than anybody. What what do you think of? I think I'm in chapter eight or nine actually now And I'm obsessed with it and this is actually exactly the game that I want in quarantine where it's super lengthy. There's a storyline that I think hook onto some of the dialogue is laughable or not the dialogue but like the character dynamics between each other. It's just like cheesy friendships. But some of them are cute and fun in their occasional dialogue moments. That are funny to End The combat is good. I've seen a lot of people talk about how it's kind of confusing at first. So it's interesting David your early on but you're enjoying it. Maybe it's just People used to the term based structure more than that but I think it melds the two really well especially if like if you know final coming into it. And you don't have to learn about things like the All the magic abilities that you have or summons and what that stuff means like how some of those like upgrade systems work. It's much easier just to jump in and not have to learn all of that Independently of anything else. So I'm familiar with Real easy for me and it was really nice to kind of jump back into those familiar structures so I think I think one of the things that I would love to have infancy. Seven is what Dragon Age had. Which is the tactics ability so you can go in and actually premier companion members and how what their behaviors are in accordance to what battle scenarios there

"ari" Discussed on The Beat with Ari Melber
"I'm thrilled to tell you that we are joined right now by. Abc legal analysts and of course MSNBC veteran Dan Abrahams. He has a new book. John Adams under fire about the role Adams played as a pre revolutionary attorney in the wake of the Boston massacre Dan. It's always great to talk to you about everything under the Sun. Let's of course focus on the new book out. Why did you want to tell this story because I think this was probably the most important case in early American history? This was the incident that almost led to the American revolution happened. Two hundred and fifty years ago five colonist killed by British soldiers immediately. The colonists want revenge. They WANNA THEY WANNA do more than just bring them to court but they're brought to court and no one wants to represent them. John Adams agreed to represent the British soldiers. He lost half his business. He had rocks thrown through his window and yet there was a legitimate defence. This was not as it's been portrayed even in school books with a line of British soldiers firing at columnists this was a fight that had ensued their rocks were thrown snowballs and the question became exactly what happened was it was it. Manslaughter was it. Murder was justified et CETERA. And so it's just a fascinating case that set standards. I mean this is where we got. The reasonable doubt standard from this is the case where John Adams coined the phrase. Facts are stubborn. Things it was just such an important case and we had the two hundred and seventeen page transcript from the trial to serve as as the heart of the story well then there's so many parallels now so many people concerned about what the rule of law means in the trump era but it's it's a framework that we've had for a long time so we have some history for walk us through what your research and writing shows in the book about why the rule of law perhaps a younger concept then with Gordon to atoms. Well because I think that it was the faith in the legal system that prevented violence it because without the faith in the outcome and without the faith in the in the process the fact that people were okay with how it went. They felt it was fair. If that hasn't happened there would have been violence and I think that's what made this case so important. And so- seminal in American history. Put aside all the precedent etc that said if you look back at it today. It's so important and reminding US why talking about why we shouldn't attack our judges personally Supreme Court District Court. You name it. You can criticize them totally disagree. With this opinion. This was wrong. That was wrong. This judge got it misunderstood the law. But when you start attacking judges personally you undermine faith in the system and the only way we're going to have a constitutional crisis in this country is if people start ignoring court rulings and that is why. I just think it is so important to retain that faith in the legal cyst that makes a lot of sense to me anyway Final question is people always look to verdicts. Lawyers will tell you that when the system works by definition you cannot agree with every single verdict. It is a question of whether justice was more. Broadly served in your book. How do you explore the verdicts here? I think that the verdict will right. I mean I actually agree. With what the verdicts were the verdict. For the captain there was a captain and eight soldiers. The captain was acquitted because he didn't order them to fire. It's clear the soldiers fired on their own and so then the question became OK which ones fire. And why did they fire and I will tell you. There were two who were convicted of manslaughter. Not all eight but the sentence is what's wild in this case and while people could certainly google it I will. I will happen two hundred and fifty years ago I I. I will still leave that one for people to read the book. Because it's a wild sentence in this case for the two people that were convicted. If I'm not mistaken Mr Abrahams you just used a television style. Teaser for your written book is true for top.
Resident Evil 3 Remake: Safe Rooms Still Safe From Nemesis
"Evil three's nemesis just got a whole lot scarier. This is from Hiran Cryer at US Gamer in resident evil. Three not even the safe rooms can save you from Nova Net from Nemesis. A first for the series. The hokey nemesis will be able to break into safe rooms. When pursuing Jill Valentine as if the tyrant was already terrifying enough the latest issue of official. Xbox magazine has an interview with resume. Evil three producer Peter Fabiano in which the producer reveals that yes nemesis will actually pursue protagonist. Jill Valentine into a safe room. It sounds like if you're being pursued by nemesis you'll have to break line of sight before ducking out into a safe room if you just head into a safe room while the tyrants pursuing you who burst through the door to confront you please. Capcom have mercy. This is a stark contrast to resume. You WILL CHOOSE MR X. The tire from twenty nineteen imagining a residential to never enter safe rooms and as soon as either Leon Kennedy or Claire. Redfield entered a safe room. Mr X. would be S- bond and start from another location now Enron. You've played resin evil three. I have you played a pre. You haven't played the whole game. You previewed resonable three. Do you have experience with this at all. It makes sense when I heard that I'd like. Oh Yeah told he is not a slowly whiten around stocking you kinda type. He actively pursues you. If you're running away from him he will get in your way so it makes sense that if you're trying to duck into a room even a safe room he will just follow you inside there. Because why wouldn't he? Yeah always was weird people to play that right. Yes so he's able to yeah. Yeah when you go into the Starr's Office for example. That's one of the rooms that could disarray important. Yeah mister x couldn't follow you into so like that. She would just get in this room that literally just a wooden door that this giant hulking brute would just stand outside. Yeah I can't get in. Get them assist. We were talking about this on our first impressions for three is more active more fast action. He right and the whole game of threes. More actioning would you say which would you would you say is the scarier game. Seems like from where you're at from what you played at of Ari three so far I mean already to a more creeping kind of scare like you're kind of worried about not necessarily the moment to moment like just sort of gently walking down like a kind of vibe to it really your dove. The scare factor is the fact that nothing is happening With zero three even though our new nemesis was coming and I knew he was chasing me. I still left up in my seat. Occasionally of Eli just how fast he would come out there and kick your ass. Mr Extra me was the scariest part original to Mr X. I could I can handle the game for the most part like I still building up to where you start seeing Mr X. and stuff I. I'd be on edge right. Open a door. Zombies see people crawling around see like the liquors the guys on the ceiling downing all that stuff was scary to me but it went over a point when Mr x was introduced like that was the morale is like Oh shoot me and now this game is really scary. So the idea that nemesis is is even breaking into safe rooms and and and is more like capable terrifies me. Let's from a design respective it make sense of this. These are games based on the idea that you have limited ammo but if you do use ammo you'll have to use a little bit of it But it will still kill whatever's in front of you so the main. The enemy of resident evil is wasting resources. Yeah so here's a guy in which even the most resources is not gonNA kill him. And that's what makes him exceptionally scary. That's from a design perspective. Yeah makes you make harder choices. We Bolero writes in and says Hello Camp. She was just announced that Emma so we will to into any safe room in our three remake. Fuck that what are your thoughts on this. Someone who didn't play the original how this compared to it. Does this make the game too difficult? Thank you for keeping me sane. At work we Palero no. I don't think it's too difficult at the section. I played there was a save point right before I fought nemesis and also. I want to say that you don't actually get back to save points. You can send back the checkpoint okay so if you do get killed by Nemesis. You're not going to go back to like three hours before when you forgot to save. I might be wrong on that completely. Somebody can correct me. When are you can check previews and correct me? But it's not like it's not a huge deal that he can follow you into safe rooms in less likely designed it to be a deal of need to break nemesis. I otherwise you're screwed. Yeah which I assume it's going to be a section or two like that and you have like a dodge will have more ability to kind of handle with that faster. Pace and that kind of heightened sense of action and so I think that kind of makes it that kind of makes up for what that difficulty can kind of be perceived to be compared to our aid to where if you feel slower you I. I don't know what the health bar situation is in. Our compared are already. You can take like two or three hits before this is about that. Yeah this is like the same thing. Yeah okay I'm really excited for for already three. We're only a month out. We're so close. There are a lot of games are about to come out. Yes or he is coming out next week like we're a week away for a few weeks away from like a million games. Yeah so we're we're we're we're in an exciting place right now and I can't wait. I was thinking the other day like God. It's so slow these days. Nothing's coming out and then like a couple of weeks could be bang. Bang Bang well. That's why I started dying light and I bought me speed. He And I've been playing through blood or in all these games because it's kind of been a slow period and specifically about dying light because I was like man bloodborne stressful. Play something less stressful. Let me play dying light a Horrigan zombies that that get scarier in the night time and playing that just because I'm like kind of trying to gear up in and Kinda get that out before all these releases start hidden in all have to play those games And so it's it's about to be a fun time. Yeah I can't wait for it. One of the good things about dying light though is they added that story difficulty. Oh Yeah Yeah where you can let your like. I don't want to worry too much about this. I JUST WANNA have experienced the main campaign. The story I feel more games to do that even if I never avail myself of it. Yeah just like okay. I don't have time for this. I don't want to like Bang my head against the game right now and just WanNa play experience for right the second. Did you like dying. When he played it. I liked the original. I like what I saw to a lot more. Okay because like I think one the stuff that bothered me was at inlands protagonist at all and that once. You don't like to progress most of the game candidates on you
Top Five Mark Wahlberg Movies: Say Hi to Your Mother for Us | The Big Picture
"Unfortunately this Shithole has more fucking leaks in the Iraqi navy. Fuck Yourself. I'm tired from fucking your wife. How's your mother good? She's tired from fucking my father. You have a job Tom. I'm a firefighter. Oh God bless you a hero. I'm not hero. We'd all be here. We could use the petroleum. No excuse me Christmas. Utah a lot of fucking money. What did you do? I mean if you take away nothing else for my class from this experience let it be this. If you're not a genius don't bother right. The world needs plenty of electricity and a lot of them are happy and they can help. It really can't be that we can always do. Better let me keep trying. If you guys keep trying I'm shawn fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about Mark Wahlberg. This episode may break the all time record for big picture dissonance later in the show. I have an interview with Kelly. Reichardt the writer and director behind independent film classics. Like old joy. Meek's cutoff in the new film. First cow which might be the best movie of Two Thousand Twenty so far. I hope you'll stick around for that but I were joined by the frog. Sheriff Chris Ryan. I heard that Mark. Wahlberg actually dropped out of first cow. He was gonNA play the cow Alao. But you're already doing animal. Humor here on driver too is calling. Chris. You're here because you're a fan of Mark Wahlberg work. He's The star of a new movie. That is hitting Netflix. This Friday called Spencer confidential. I think gets his fifth film with Peterberg. The actor turned director of such films as lone survivor and deepwater horizon. This is a very strange movie but I think it's going to be a a very watched movie because the corona virus is scaring America into staying inside their house. And so I think that there's a potential for a lot of viewership of this movie. So we're talking about Mark Wahlberg one of the most resilient and persistent movie stars. I guess of the past twenty five years so let's just start with WHO is Mark Wahlberg. How did this happen? That Mark Wahlberg became one of the signature figures of movies in the twenty first century. I would not say I'm a fan of Mark Wahlberg as like I'm a I'm agnostic as a citizen. Yeah I would say that. I am very interested in the way that he has conducted his career. Which is kind of a weird throwback to a studio systems our he makes three to four movies every eighteen months somehow and just releases them at like a hugely prolific rate at. I'm fascinated by all the little pockets of his career that he has created where he repeats. You know he goes back to these little micro genres that he and he works a lot of people over and over again by the way he kind of has conducted his career to me is almost unique among Hollywood movie stars anymore. I mean most of the time when people achieve a certain level success. They just like see in three years for my next blockbuster or award fodder and he's just like nope. I'm grinding out. Family movie violent action film and then every once in a while Raunchy comedy and it's just like pretty pretty like unique among all Hollywood stars so I'm fascinated. What do you make them Amanda? I was fascinated when going back to you. Remember how many great directors he's worked with and how many actually excellent movies he's been in. Chris was asking me how much we watching I had to do for this podcast and the answer is a lot. Because I wouldn't say that Mark Wahlberg stays with me besides certain shots that will certainly be discussed on this podcast but he especially I guess in the first decade of this century just goes on a tremendous run. I really from Boogie nights on and works with a does a lot of really great movies and then kind of decides to just become like the Peterberg comedy guy in the second decade of the century. And I it's a really interesting shift. He just Kinda decides no. I'm going to do this now. And it's very fascinating to me I can't really make sense of. I also is Christmas talking about his efficiency. Just pulled up his daily schedule. Do you guys remember the days? Will he wakes up. Like four o'clock in the morning posted this on his own instagram typical daily scheduled to thirty. Am Wake Up. What don't you forty five prayer time. Three fifteen am breakfast. There's a lot of work work. He's golfing from seven thirty to eight. Which is the golf people? And there's a chamber recovery at nine thirty that takes more time than golf workout number two lunches and our so our meeting slash work calls also an hour and he goes to bed at seven thirty PM and which in Los Angeles for. I'd say six at least six months of the year. That is still broad daylight. Yeah Yeah Su. There is real efficiency baked into this. He's clearly very deliberate guy. He's making choices. And I think that pertains to his daily life and also his his career. There is clearly thought going into this. It's not a type of thought. I can access. I still don't know why you would wake up at two thirty and I don't know why you would do like five deep water horizons. There's a rumor that he has a routine. I think you. I'm speculating here. But I think he's a member of Wilshire Country Club here in Los Angeles. My husband told me this last night and he likes to play alone. He likes to play. And that's why he's playing so early in the morning and he's trying to get in like a quick nine or quick eighteen. I don't know five days a week which I'm who among? Us would love to do that if I could wake up before five. Am I would do it. I'll tell you I would love to do that. I'll tell you something else I am. I find golf to be social and I get crippled like when I play by myself. I'm like all the neurosis is creeping like. Should I take another shot now like it really playing golf? If you're not playing with anyone can just tell you. He's got three snacks on the schedule. Including one that takes an hour and a half from eight to nine thirty. Am is snack after seven. Thirty to eight am golf. Probably a euphemism. Oh Okay so you think. His sessions are ninety minutes. So you're saying to jump off something. Amanda said You know who? He reminds me of a bizarre way Cruz. Where it's like that run. Where cruises like I'll just work with Barry Levinson Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg and every great director at it seems like I'm just the most important factor in the whole world and then one day he wakes up and says I'M GONNA make action movies for the rest of my life? It's very unlikely though. I mean his origins restraints obviously member of this very well known family. He's from Massachusetts. He starts out as a a rap artist and ultimately becomes a Calvin Klein M. C. An. Mc Yes we watched the vibrations video. Recently I took my top five twenty two. Would you make of good vibrations? And and how did you feel about the funky bunch all these years later? It's just really bizarre that this was a thing that we lived through. Who is the funky bunch? I I still don't know who's in it. Were you in a Chris? Thought it was the backup dancers. I mean yes. That's who they were but like do you know anything about them and where they are now. I was pretty. Yeah I was pretty. I was pretty authentic back then so I was. I was already listening to deep deep newer. Grab I love talking about the early nineties with you. Can we talk about the Calvin Klein ads for a second really really important? You're almost put these on my list. And it's and my honorable mention boxer briefs. Yeah I was still a boxer sky back then that was not interested in the product. Would you just tear the ads out of the magazine? Crumpled them up and throw them in the garbage. I think that the those are the signature moment in his career without the advertising campaign he would not have become weirdly Tom Like sub Tom Cruise but he you know. He soared to a of fame on that ad campaign. They're just extremely important. Ninety s imagery obviously came as also in them. And that's where the whole K. Moss thing starts Them Hating each other. Great early celebrity feud they're very important that's all and also it looks great. I mean he and his image was of basically like a tough guy with a bad attitude whether that was true or not he obviously got into some altercations and his his personal history is pretty complicated. We're not gonNA spend too much time talking about on this show. But I think that he basically leveraged his complicated persona in the public into a movie career and if you look at the first few movies that he makes replays these kind of like weird intimidating Undeveloped YOUNG MEN. You know in the basketball diaries in. Ryen Russillo favorite movie fear And even in boogie nights. There's something like violently adolescent about his his persona which is very different from the kind of actor and movie star that he is right now so a lot of times. I think that we could. You could write like a series of essays about how much actors of his generation have attempted to mimic the kind of like rough and tumble blue collar upbringing. That Walberg apparently had like how how often like DiCaprio Damon or these guys have tried to be like no I'm Jim Carroll and he's just a function Carol I'm the real thing but it's weird like even in his authenticity. If you WANNA call it that he still lacks like any kind of emotional intelligence or psychological depth to portraying those things and you could write all these essays. But you could just watch the departed. Because that's what this does that. Do you need that from an actor? Do you need to feel like this person is like in control and has that depth that Chris was talking about? I think I do ultimately. I think that there is a reason that I gravitate to Matt Damon instead of Wahlberg. And I think that you not just because of the departed and the Boston. Bill will talk about that a lot as a comparison but I like I said I really remember a lot of Walberg performances. Even though he's been given a lot of great ones and I think that's because they have a I don't WanNa say surface level. That's unfair. They're actually a lot of depth but they aren't the emotional depths and I think I personally don't hang onto those. I think I'm always wondering how in command of the Ark of his career. He is because you pointed out he makes he's. I mean he's just been a lot of great movies a lot of movies that are going to stand the test of time and it always seems like he's being cast the way that a lot of young actresses or cast as the. Nayef as the like the naive and innocent who gets corrupted when put into a system and like did someone in a room. Say That to him. This is your lane man will early like you think so. Well I just don't think that he I think he's largely in charge of the movies that he makes. Now he's like. I think that the movies that we see our movies that Mark Wahlberg once made for the most part and my suspicion is the reason he made that transition. Amanda was referencing about just mostly doing action. Comedy movies now is because those movies are more fun and easier to make for him there either like a physical challenge there like a day on the set whereas making boogie nights as hard Russell Smart. Yeah I think that he is both like sinking very strategically as the schedule would suggest and also like not over thinking it i. That's the VIBE. I guess sometime at the end of the day he's going like it very much is what it is. He is a very Surface level or just immediate actor. That's that's what you're getting and so I think he wants. He gets to produce the movies himself and make the decisions. You just kind of like. Yeah action comedies. Got There before we get into our top fives and I think we should figure out what we mean. When we say top five if it's five performances or his top five movies because there's some complexity. There is a very strange celebrity. The the nine eleven thing is you're staring right at. It's just hanging over my head as I think about him as a public person. So in twenty twelve Walberg was quoted in a magazine interview regarding. What would have happened if he had flown aboard American Airlines Flight? Eleven on September eleventh. Two thousand one. He'd been booked on a flight on flight. Eleven but his plans changed the day before the scheduled flight and he cancelled his reservation. Walberg received public criticism for stating quote. If I was on that plane with my kids it wouldn't have went down like it did and there would have been a lot of blood in that first class cabin and then me saying okay. We're going to land somewhere safely. Don't worry Warburg apologized for those statements. But they're actually the sort of thing that kind of inform his public persona and when we watch him in an action movie. We think that he's the kind of guy who's like I would have kicked some ass on nine eleven which I don't know if you like complicates the quality of the films that he makes but I can't get stuff like that. Outta my head once I've read or heard about it and I feel like we've referred back to it even in a joking fashion over the years right. Yeah it is definitely one of the top three things that I think about. When someone says Mark Wahlberg schedule yeah nine eleven yeah and the last night of prosthetic but like you know. I'm human beings. It's the point of the movie full movie as leading to that so yes I agree. It's funny he is both. I think very funny as a comedic actor like entirely humorless and it's that some things he's in on the joke on some things he's just kind of being like no I would have save. I would have stopped nine eleven. Which is just a ridiculous thing to say. And that's the joke of Andy Sandberg's say Heidi Mother for me. Yeah you know portrayal of him is this is like he's kind of total rube but also not. There's something very elusive about. Whatever's going on with an entourage thing it's like. Do you watch entourage because you think it's completely ridiculous or do you watch entourage because you think it's like six awesome representative drama and I dare to say that Mark Wahlberg is like Yup? That's how it went. I you probably think you're right. Insulin entourage Ari comes on and it's really like Whoa but most but he's like that's accurate me. Like Vince is very much living my experience. He's like we should make a show about it. I think. I think that you guys are right. Do you think that this should be five performances or top five movies I choose? I don't know I don't know where I landed. I think I did I tried to be interesting here but I I wouldn't say that any of these performances leap out at me except for my number one and number two as like excellent performances. They're more like movies. I really like was he ever given a truly great performance. Yes I I think. There's one and a half great performances on this movie and it's just a half is the end of boogie nights. No no I. Well that might be the case now. There's another movie I still did performances but I think they are. They are a little bit also an award for the movie knowing how best to use him right. Okay well then let's get into it. Let's go into our top five Mark Wilbur performances slash movies number five Amanda. Why don't you start us off? This goes out to Bill Simmons and apparently to right who I still have never met. Hello Ryan. I'm going with fear. Why not whow revisit? Yes I did okay okay seen Djing

You know we're GONNA see people turn out for Bernie Sanders. Unlike what people are expecting. It's not going to be twenty teams. Well let me. I want to get your counter argument because that's a story. Obviously that's that's you just heard of the argument from one South Carolina. Parents there that he's he's trying to basically lobby and he made the case pulling them from Biden Sanders. What would your counter argument? Because by the way they could be watching the vote tomorrow. What would you mentioned? Obviously we're friends before says so to the difference between the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders primarily. And what's happening tomorrow? Is there were two candidates on the ballot and to sixteen so the one hundred percent of the vote had to be split between now. You have numerous candidates on the ballot and so you have to have a number of votes going to other moderates who were appearing on the ballot in South Carolina and also on Super Tuesday and into March. So you're never gonna see the spread you saw from a Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders primary in two thousand twenty. But what you are going to see is all of the moderates numbers adding up to look more like a Hillary Clinton number showing that the Democratic Party is hoping to get a moderate on the ticket rather than democratic socialist. And I would. I would just say this that we cannot have this conversation in a vacuum president. Trump is the person who African American voters and all voters are looking at defeating. If there's one thing that Unites Democrats getting rid of Donald Trump and talking to my own black.

"Representative Justin Bamberg director the South Carolina Democratic Party. Amanda Love Day. She's a senior adviser to a super PAC. That is a supporter of Joe Biden. Fix All reading here. We're going to get to the surrogate starting with a journalist who's followed so many of these races. What do you see in this pivotal homestretch? Right now it's interesting is the poll numbers before Congressman Clyburn. 's endorsement of vice-president Biden. We started seeing poll polls come out. Clemson University and others showing that the gap between Vice President Biden and Bernie Sant senator. Sanders isn't five points in single digits. It's in double digits. It's in it's in a range that people had come to expect to happen between Biden Sanders. Then the clyburn endorsement hits. It's emotional. It's powerful and it's we will find out tomorrow whether it's effective and then the other thing that's happened. I think is probably wind. Underneath A vice-president sales was a story that came out that talked about the difference between the the polls and the actual vote the actual win and the winds have always been much greater than the final poll. And so for if you're Vice President Biden. You're hoping that past is prologue. That that happens to him that the the vote total he gets is bigger than the poll the latest polls come out that Congressman Clyburn the legendary Congressman Clyburn. His endorsement will be that push that he needs for not just South Carolina but also Super Tuesday because as much as we talk about the importance of the African American vote here in South Carolina and it is super important since African Americans. Sixty percent of the democratic electorate. There are other states on Super Tuesday. That also have significant. African American building populations that could stand a their votes could inert to the vice president's benefit and you're pointing out. That Biden has evidence of doing better here and it was doing worse when he was doing worse when people say they finally heard some fight from him. Everyone knows Barack Obama style. He is chill and he does well when he's chilling. There's a lot of people who feel mandate Biden. When he was chilling it wasn't working and they liked the fight and I talked to voters today. Who said you know? It seems like he's getting back up off the Mat. Take a quick listen to Joe Biden hitting Bernie Sanders the fact that someone lists himself as efficient independent not even a Democrat except to run for the office of President and then lists himself as a socialist. That doesn't fly there all I know is I'm gonNA run hard to help down ballot folks win. Is He looking better with voters here as he actually doesn't take anything for granted and fights for his political life absolutely? There's two pieces that are going to give him the momentum. He needs to win big tomorrow. I is this continuous effort of his. He did well in Nevada heated. Well at the debate he did well in this town hall and he got Jim Clyburn endorsement. I mean that is a list that any politician would dream of second is he? Is continuously going out there and showing confidence. He is steady. He's on message. It's something that South Carolina voters and voters across the country. Have been waiting for and it's here and he's the candidate that we've been hoping to see for months. Justin I think Bernie Sanders is making way way way. Ground here okay. This isn't twenty sixteen There are African American voters in particular in South Carolina. Who understand that Vice President? Joe Biden is not Barack Obama. Obviously Barack Obama can't win the presidency if he picks a vice president that is exactly like him. African American voters voters in general in the Democratic Party for fired up about Senator Sanders Joe Biden seems to have lost step so to speak. I think we've seen it as the vice president of the United States. He should be performing better in every state then he has been doing Think about it right. Twenty six teen. We were talking. Hillary Barney and the talk was hilary's GonNa hit seventy percent of the vote. Bernie's GONNA get thirty. We're talking about what ten points at this point Joe Is the only candidate who could quote unquote win in South Carolina. Instill lose at the same time Bernie Sanders is GonNa perform extremely well here He's GonNa be competitive. And I think that the numbers are going to surprise a lot of people in this day and we are seeing the outlines of a debate at times between Sanders and Biden and we have brand new reporting. I WANNA share. This was as mentioned just about about a mile from where we are right now at the Bernie Sanders Rally and I spoke to several voters. I WANNA play one voter in particular young voter. Who was telling us about discussing with his parents. Their vote here in South Carolina and about voting for Biden Sanders. My parents will be South Carolina. Are They GonNa vote tomorrow? That's the arguments. Have you had the conversation? I had a conversation with them months ago. There were more Biden in the beginning but they weren't really following the race. I mean they just know Biden Obama. I kind of to you know. Pull them along tug them a long answer knowing. Hey guys this is Bernie stance both whites. It'd be important by mother.

"Hey everyone listened to. The podcast is our Melbourne. We are back with a podcast exclusive. You guys said you like it when we do these impeachment trial week so we're doing what we've been keeping you up to date of course each night on some of the developments from trump impeachment trial both on air and in the show and in our special extra segments which are always available to you on Youtube if you look for them but right now is a bonus episode. I'm going to summarize the final day of the prosecution's opening arguments there against Donald Trump. Then I'm going to play something that you may not have heard or seen because it wasn't on the beat but it did make some waves quite honestly. It is an interview where I go through both the pros and cons of this trump defense and get really into detail with someone so you've probably heard of Mark Meadows Freedom Caucus Chair and on the trump defense team as a republican in the house. We go into a lot of stuff. It's back and forth. It gets a little fiery but take a listen. Listen to let me know in the comments. What you think or if this questions We missed it and ask and then finally our report on why this week the truth hurts. Yes like the lizzy Song Song. All of that up ahead. On this special edition of the beat with Ari Melber. The opening case against President trump has hit the home stretch democratic prosecutors finishing finishing their third day of arguments with a compelling case about how trump approach this Ukraine probe like the molar pro. Something he had to stop in order to hide the truth. President trump tried to cheat and then he worked hard to cover it up a scheme to suppress evidence and orchestrate a massive cover-up who ordered the cover up of the call record no so the delay wasn't meaningless. Real people. Real lives are at stake. Orienting them to defy congressional subpoenas. The question for for you is whether it's okay for the president to withhold tax payer money for a personal political benefit their president wage to campaign of intimidation. There's a toxic mess at sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue it's not okay to me this is how alliances wither and die and how Russia wins the Democrats detailing their case for impeaching trump based on obstruction of congress. And what they say trump did after he got caught. They're arguing. That obstruction is key because it also shows Donald trump knew he was doing something wrong before anyone was even talking about impeachment or quid pro quo bribery. Remember the Democrats say Donald Donald Trump was suspiciously telling his ambassador Gordon Saul and he wanted no quid pro quo. which is a response to an accusation? He wasn't even facing yet now now. Republican defenders contest that interpretation. They're seizing on something. You may actually remember from George Costanza in Seinfeld the the idea from Seinfeld. It's not a lie if you believe it and some are writing about this today well and that is technically true but think about it like this. There's no tooth fairy but kids who talk about about the tooth fairy. They believe something untrue. They're not lying parents. who talk about the tooth fairy? No they aren't telling the truth. So trump defender Lindsey. Graham is is going full George Costanza saying whatever trump did it was right in his own. Mind all I can do well. You is it. From the President's point of view he did nothing wrong in his mind if he thought he was doing something wrong he would probably shut up about it in his mind. There may be a lot more along these lines as Donald Trump's lawyers get their turn on the Senate floor and this argument. Let me be clear this can work up to a point. Criminal Law often requires tires bad or corrupt intent. In your mind if you forget to turn off your oven and a fire starts you. Don't go to jail for that honest mistake but if you don't turn off your oven in order to start a fire that could be arson. Same Action Different Mindset and there you get the crime. So why am I telling you all this you you need to know this to understand where this trial is headed because this is an impeachment trial not a criminal prosecution if a president abuses power by hypothetically really ordering the army to block voting booths and cancelled the election. Well it doesn't matter if the president thinks in his mind it's the right thing to do the congress will reach its own judgement of whether that's an abuse of power. It is as for grams other hypothetical that trump would shut up if he really was doing something wrong. We'll house managers insist it's it's trump's very inability to shut up about it that's provided the evidence take this thundering argument by Adam. Schiff many are saying we'll be in the history books. We're GONNA go through right now. Some shifts argument on the floor adding in the extra evidence that we all know about from the public record beginning with I the public conspiracy. What happens if China got the message by the way likewise China started investigation into the by? Now you can say well. He's just joking. Of course he didn't really mean China's should investigate the binds. You know that's no joke. Second Shift presented evidence is trump ousted the professionals because he opposed the facts. He chose Rudy Giuliani over his own national security advisers. We have have no information. That indicates Ukraine interfered with the two thousand sixteen presidential election. Details are both convoluted and false and during your time in the White House you explain that to the president right date is not only a conspiracy theory it is completely debunked when all of them were telling him. MM This Ukraine. Two Thousand and sixteen stuff is Kooky crazy Russian propaganda. He chose not not to believe them he chose to believe Rudy Giuliani. And there. You go even beyond the conspiracy theories shift arguing sending your personal fix or does reveal your motive votive which was back on display during this very trial this week. He chose Rudy Giuliani over his own national security advisers it's shocking crimes at the highest levels of both governments. That makes him dangerous to us to our country. Am I going to cover productive. The Democrats and the media covered up absolutely not all of them. Were telling him this Ukraine two thousand sixteen stuff is Kooky Kooky crazy Russian propaganda just just attacking me. Why would anyone in their right mind? Believe Rudy Giuliani over Christopher. Wray and then you get to a really devastating part but aside partisanship and shift went on to remind everyone including the very jurors who know this so personally they themselves have long questioned trump's integrity and fitness for the very powers hours. He now stands accused of abusing. You know you can't trust this present do what's right for this country country. This man is a pathological liar. Does anybody really question whether the president is capable of what he's charged with. I think he's a Kook. I think he's crazy adding he's unfit for office. No one is really making the argument. Donald trump would never do such a thing. Donald trump is a phony a fraud his promises whereas worthless as a degree from trump university. Because of course we know that he would and of course we know that he did filing their the president's own words about abusing abusing power part of the impeachment trial it will surely be remembered. Not only for Congressman shifts emotional closing last night but for its schilling logic. I think what will be remembered may be this shift noting that if the Senate ultimately runs a trial which lets this man completely off the hook with not only only no conviction but with no censure with no accountability with no criticism even in with perhaps no witnesses for the public record that kind of trial trial risks inviting him to do it all again. He'll do it now. He's done it before he'll do it for the next several month's he'll do it in the election these allowed to. I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters. Okay then I have an article to where I have the right to to do whatever I want as president this is why if you find him guilty you must find that. He should be removed. The House manager. They're arguing when someone tells you who. They are brags about the thought of literally getting away with murder. Who does that and that all of that is out in public for you to see? The argument here is to try to get the senators. All of them no matter the party to at least twice about that. And that's what trials are four to see the evidence to stop and listen whether it is exciting or not as has been debated and then to take that all in and deliberate as the Senate does that. Perhaps many in the nation will be joining them today. Democratic house managers will be presenting oral arguments on the abuse of power charge here something president. Trump's lawyers claim is not even impeachable in the first place joined now by Congressman Mark Meadows Republican from North Carolina. A member of the president's Impeachment Defense Team also remember the oversight committee. Thanks for in here Sir. Good morning great to be with you all good morning to you. Take a listen congressmen to what Congressman Schiff said on the floor. Yesterday you you will hear the president's lawyers make the astounding claim that you can't impeach the president for abusing the power of his office. Couldn't go to bill bar for that opinion. Couldn't go to even Jonathan Turley their expert in the House for that opinion. No they had to go outside of these experts outside of the constitutional constitutional off to a criminal defense lawyer and professor and why because they can't contest the facts and here is that exact evidence. Bill Barr writing. Trump was president in two thousand eighteen..

"If you want to control the means of production a third way is something kind of I think in between utilize plus wherein a chain for someone who's never had any money and ben kind of looked down upon or felt marginalized their whole life is a way of saying. I got something now because I notice and I'm curious what you think I noticed. Just watch it on instagram. The younger rappers at twenty getting money for the first time it goes to the chain it goes the watch but they're twenty and what's the twenty year old in any context thinking about right there. That's the mentality of a young person. The ones who stay in the game were succeed right. Jay's not wearing the same level right buddies building power in other ways. I'm I'm curious especially for our listeners some of whom I'd say Oh of course I came to this is awesome and other say okay. I'm learning something new. What do you say to them about hip. Hop Sort of complex relationship with that materialism and when young men sometimes from poorer community saying OB- finally getting my it goes back to early hip hop on the MC has always been on the one that that paints the pitches and sets has to scene and His Majesty nation is exaggeration for things is what created that that wow l. moment at at at the party and one of the things that I am sees always did was brag about things brag about having Avin. Thanks maybe as a measuring stick or sometimes too big. Dick Cellphone after school or take a dip in the pool. Which is why you know what I mean yeah. I rap record. was you know but again it was it was it was rap as being egotistical right now you got. A. Dj College saying our pool is bigger than conyers right now. They're comparing who has larger pool exactly and that that's the that's the way it goes for a lot of people the media the media aw starts a lot of that too young to me but yeah. I mean in the beginning it was you know us being egotistical testicle imaginative and things of that nature but then it did turn into almost stereotypical thing where you know if you're a rapper you're supposed to have this. APP This on not only from the individual but even you know people looking at rapids will be like. Oh you you were rapper was your bodyguards. Where's your big chain wizard. That became a way to confer the legitimacy of hip hop as you need to have. That's why people say you know. Mc Hammer was like I guess I'm supposed to have this entourage says if you can afford it we can do whatever you want. Well let me let me ask you before I let you go. There's two things I wanNA talk about your titles and then some of the concepts of creativity in the book on the title's you know Ebro big a big hip hop. Dj Seven he made his list top fifty rappers of all time so this isn't just twenty years ago all time he has you in the top ten billboard billboard. has you in the top five rappers of all time and the source magazine. has you number one on their top fifty list of all time. I X. L. put it in a really a funny way. I think they said rock'em is your favorite rapper's favorite rapper. What does that mean to you as that's dope. That's that's. That's going to let me know that I did something good. home. I on spy people but also I guess inspired a staff where it it. It's GONNA outlast my career. You know what I mean and and it's a dope APPs my sable. Who's your favorite rapper and they say such. What was your favorite rapper. You know what I mean so I it's like it's overlapping my career and going into other people's career okay so is one of them things where you know feel the moral and good about you know about the grounds that I laid man and oh no we all want to. We all want longevity careers but we also want our music stand tested time impossible. Ns S. one of the ways that I could say on along that way along that route where you know maybe you know I can be remembered for a long time after after my career well after you know passed away so that's making me feel good about you know doing some oh goodness sitting. Goba people yeah that's wild and then there's the creativity you talk about in the book you talk about purpose inspiration ration- your spirituality consciousness and energy and this is the other quarterb. I'm hoping you'll read because some of these lines you know they echo for years for people so let's hear you again reading from the book sweat the technique which people can get out now and then. Let's talk about on the other side if you if you share this passage with us yes the passages. I said never let the Mike magnetising me no more to emphasize this. Although the Mike is the Mike is used to have control over me now now. I have control over it I used to it used to draw me. Excuse me I got my glasses on. It used to draw me in like a magnet but now memorial MC in my relationship with the Mike Solomon Control Yeah so people read this book Doc. They know the legacy. You're trying to do something very difficult which is opened up a little bit of your creativity. That passage is helping us think through how you take these structures and draw them out out what will people. This is the part of the interview. It's both interesting but also our little book pitch. What will people listening get from reading this book about how to tap their own creativity because I saw some of the messages and lessons is brought it and you might work. We words some lyricism. Other people might work with other things but it's more broad than in the book. Yes yes. It's about people being able to because entertaining you know sports whatever it is a lot of times we look for different things to different people for inspiration trying to explain that we also by ourselves to and if we dig deep enough you know sometimes when you there's no inspiration like I'm a writer Sometimes you know you get to the point where your pin gets slow. Some people like to call a writer's block. I'm stubbing. I don't believe in writer's writer's block okay so I believe once my pen slowdown I gotta go live or you know just relax for a minute you know regroup group dig deeper and and you know focus in and let it flow we all have a natural choose source of energy in our body otherwise we wouldn't be able to get up to anything hard wooden beloved flow so we are energy so if I if we can realize realized that and tap into it in understand that it also works for creative process we can inspire ourselves to do the same thing that James Brown inspired me to do not saying that you know I'm great enough all better than James Brown or you know but got the inspiration. A lot of times that we're looking for outside of us is in us we have we have the ability to push ourselves far beyond we know and understand so. I'm trying to get people to understand that no it consists within them and tap into it because a lot of times you know using different people as racing a lot tops. James Brown is not going to give me everything I need inspiration. Marvin Gaye is not going to give me everything I need for inspiration Michael Jackson all of these famous people you know I love Michael Jordan but he's not gonNa give me everything I I can watch them and be inspired but when I get on that court it's GonNa take a little more than me knowing like in Mike to be good. you know what I mean so this is my way of telling the people that what we look for exists within us and we just gotTa Chapman and know that greatness is Dan just you know pull it out of yourself and and and take them troll greatness as they're pulled out of yourself ESA fitting thought for us to rest on a meditate on Cam. Thanks for coming on court and a beat. I hope you come back. No doubt would welcome at nine and keep up the good work and I love to come back. Maybe after the book hit the people. Maybe we come back. Talk about a little more. I love that you've been listening to record with Ari Melber the Great Lyricists Rottkamp and the book sweat the Technique Yours yes..

I'm thrilled to have you here. I'm going to tell people exactly how it's is really going down. You and I just sat down and we recorded with Katy Tur fallback Friday but I said we also want to extra conversation so viewers and listeners can hear more more about what you're doing your new book all that and uncorked is something people are going to hear right now. I gotTa beat Glass Right here and if you listen closely you might hear getting filled up. I heard that you like to keep it pretty low key during the day so this is a sparkling. Thank you apple CIDER and cheers to you and cheers. Here's to everyone at home and by the way we have the wine glasses so you know you can always fill them up with whatever you like to get going and so Rackham. There's so much I want to get into with you. Let's start with what people might be thinking. If they know your music you hailed by the sources of greatest lyricists of all time MTV says Eric debut album was actually the best hip hop record of all time. This is history. This is for hip hop. This is like dillon or the stones or any other. You know foundational thing. So why at this point in your life. Are you writing down in this new book so at the Technique some how you got here for a long time. people used to push me to do a book write a book. Write a book one of the things that come along with entertainers you know but never felt that was interesting enough. You know so always kind of held back on the book but I realized realized that at this point that I think my career is will definitely more important than you know me speaking about my life story. I think my career story was more important so we found a way to reach out to the people in and get some things across. I know doing this book right here. It was real important in a long overdue for me. I have a couple of quotes what's that jumped out at me from the book and I thought rather than meet sometimes in the news. I read things to people yes but I'd love for people to hear you just a short excerpt here of of talking about a way of thinking yes sir I always believe that there was a hip hop way of thinking because of listening to this music was like taking musical steroids. It was a sonic confidence image. You buy par stand up straighter. Stick out your chest or sticky chess out more with your ego. Wow and I wonder about that because I want to get right into the the politics of it the race of it you know hip hop scare a lot of people especially when I came on the scene because impart it was black man from often inner city you or big metropolis is saying hey as you just put it. We have power we should have power and and sometimes that message was very direct. If you have the police you know people around the country. WHOA you're music was talking about financial power political power. How much were you thinking about how people are going to react to that or were you just doing your thing. I I wanted them to pay attention and and listen to it in China taken into consideration you know always for some reason felt that I was supposed to spread a message or it was hard for me to do a song without putting some kind of consciousness in it MHM but in that that that plays a big part from you know what what I grew up listening to a lot of music back then was was inspirational and also informal and I think growing up you know listening to Marvin Gaye and and a lot of those heavy artists. I felt that's what I was supposed to do. So I always wanted to try to bring awareness. You know in any way I could if it was politics if it was something going on in the neighborhood vote if it was you'll anything to bring some kind of again consciousness or where this man. I thought that that was my job so became my trademark. and that trademark is also very calm. Cool is a funny word you know how words come and go but the cool has stayed in the vernacular for decades and you were cool and I happen to think that as as a listener but let me read from the New York Times. That's that's like when you go okay Mama. We made it New York Times. Yes Sir Reading From The New York Times quote. It's undeniable that hip hop in the nineteen eighties changed radically after the arrival of Rockingham his stoicism dexterity. His unerring calm his gift for narrative storytelling. There were all pathbreaking those who arrived in his wake rarely improved on him he wrapped in stern clusters that expanded the genres poetic range and its formal ambitions a how do you feel with shadow like that in New York Times and be how deliberate was that style here and that is is both humbling and empowering. You know You WanNa get noticed by you know people that are people that understand. Stan what's going on and and know the difference between rap hip-hop but just you know just getting noticed for what you do you know is the best part being artists. You know like you you put you somebody drawing something and in some people might come up. Look at and say that's nice pain and then you have the other people that have come up and say oh. That's a nice pain. I like the way you did the colors and start art explaining what you did. That's that's kind of what you look for. So you put you put specific things in in in doolittle things just for that extra extra notice. You know what I mean and you know that right there personifies you know what I was trying to do in you know to wire and were you. Were you calm and cool before you entered hip hop. That's just you yes. That was a problem I had when I went to Great Molly Malls House. the first records we did would be as president and my melody He may be you know. We told them what we wanted. He hooked it up for us and when when he gave me the Mike I started rapping and about half week though he was like Yo that sound good but could you put a little more energy in it. Did you say no no. I said okay he started to music over. I started rounded snout at the same and sitting on the couch to Tom so finally said well. Maybe if you stand up it'll and at this point I realized what he was trying to do and I didn't like that so I was like well. Molly man don't matter if I stand in a percentage of sound yeah yeah he was getting a little frustrated with the process man but and was he a big deal than you at that time. Oh no doubt Molly Mall. You're the type of person though because it's always interesting for us to learn about how creatives work yes you respect molly mall big but you're not. GonNa Change who you are for him. Not at all aw what what I realize is I was a laid back person in style that are finally picked fit fit me best and I knew that so you know as much as I love fan of Molly. Mall you know Molly Mall out. Mc Shan Roxanne's Sean from Queens Bridge in you know he was the biggest producing the game but I know what was best for me again in our you know. I'm glad I stuck to my guns and I said Molly Man. You know this is it. This is my style. This is how WanNa do this. You know it's not that I don't WanNa Rhyme uh-huh disavow. What a door so long story short the record came out maxine molly and Shane at a show we was about to do they it was standing by the back door walked up and I thought it was gonna be you know the hey come you know rock can with his laidback staff that Bob but you know I looked up that a smile on the face and when I walked over to him and it was like we get it now we get it and I looked at them. They was was like well. Iota to the record is dope. Get it now so you know if felt good you know when they said that they you know it just reinsured me and I felt even better bacchanal like understanding. Why and you know what my stylish and and you know so it was it was a go fill? A man like you know trying to fight for what you believe and finally people you know get it so it's a good thing for a while you mentioned the of course the famous record. Eric B is President Gordon President why does hip hop so often bring up the the politics weather that's social consciousness and civil rights policing thing which is one part of the impact politics or straight up saying at that time. Let's talk about you know a rapper being president. What did that mean. How literal was that. Tom. I think I think he was trying to make a statement is false hip hop but also. I think we couldn't ignore you know the big factor matter what we did as individuals on matter what we did in our city you contender today. You know things boil down to the decisions. That was a you know in politics so you. You look a lot of rappers. Take a lot of different titles from a lot of powerful people with gangsters. If you know anybody anybody you know that was powerful which people we like to say you know. I'm just like that guy or and when you look at it you know again. Dan You know you could be a gangster you can be you can beat at but I think the president we started realizing at that time was more powerful than we thought even if if not in a reality sense if that makes sense you know but as far as if you're going to pick somebody. Powell then won't you be the president of the world or I mean the United States. Then you know this way you can make decisions you you can make decisions that might help people so it was one of them things but we was trying to make a hip hip hop statement but also use metaphor to try to say like it's bigger than we think by paid in full detail what album came from looking at a check and on the check says painful and you know we we was you know dealing with reality in in trying to figure out what effective people most and you you know from titles two albums and things of that nature we always try to pick something that can kind of make people think yeah you you mentioned she painful part of hip hop especially later after you first burst on the scene was seen as glorifying wealth materialism there are many strains of that one is the straight up you know puffy a mace jumping around the camera and that vision another is what Jay z's doing now which is saying you gotTa. Own own the company and own the product..

"Podcast. And we have a very special extended bonus addition, my conversation with six members of the legendary Wu Tang clan. You're going to hear from goes face. Kill Rizza mass to kill you got inspected deck and capita, they join me on the roof of thirty rock. It was the day. They were also taping a performance Jimmy Fallon, and we talked about everything how they grew up in New York together how they got into martial arts films. How risen wants their albums to be like movies, his view of J Cole, and the sort of middle child approach between different generations of hip hop. We're talking about all kinds of stuff. This is extension of my new show on MSNBC where we go deep on news and culture, hope you enjoy the extended conversation. It starts right now. This is the b- with Ari Melber. And I'm joined for a very special interview by the legendary retain clan. Donahue. Got expect a deck. Mass killer, thank you for being here. Thank you for having us you have a tour. You have the new project of Mike, some men on Showtime, and I just want to get into the music Rizza. What does this project mean and what does it mean to you? When you see a new generation coming up excited about TEK, well, the new generation of soil, Bob music, and our culture and infusing today's, it's a, it's a blessing to me all the hard work, we put in or two hours or the travel was we, we use no being away from our families, and dedicate into art is like we planted those seeds, and now they're sprawling, you know, and I think it's, it's, it's, it's the greatest reward this documentary was so cool about it. I think you'll you'll hear things about us that we didn't even know about each other because I think it takes a man, a certain age. Right. Or certain evolution to be able to express yourself. You know what I mean? And we. At that evolutionary stage in our lives. We're not chairman anymore. It was. You will see that you'll see on the town. We but we're not caving anymore. Thank about evolution. Is that if any man sees another man fly, we all fly? Right. So when, when these kids, anybody wants moutain dock and they see our struggle, and still we've been through. I'm sure it will inspire them. It will inspire the hip hop generation, that's present. And it will inspire hip hop generation, that's coming up. You know what I mean because they'll get a chance to see a path..

"Well, the the second question, I think is pretty easy. I don't I don't think Muller was like strategizing with the southern district. I think he was just trying to do his job. And the southern district will will the chips chips will fall where they may. It's an interesting question about you know, is the is the younger generation, less informed. I think anyone who speaks about the younger generation is obviously a very old person. And. So I would be pleased to say, I don't know. I I think as the mother of teenagers. I know that teenagers don't might teenagers at least don't consume media in the way that I do. They don't watch television. But they consume it on social media. They are very informed because they have more news coming at them. My concern sometimes is sourcing. Sometimes they get their information from some outlets that I don't think are as trustworthy as they could be. But by and large, I think they are very informed. As for the southern district, and whether or not the president can part in because the southern district is a federal prosecutorial arm. The president can pardon and that's problematic. But if a state agency or prosecutorial arm starts investigating and perhaps charges than the president cannot pardon. So I suspect that that may be an avenue there. Yup. So couple of things I agree. Ari? Does a great job second. I'm not sure you know, as as Jeffrey was looting to. I'm not sure whether whether we can judge whether young people are as informed as they were before or not. But I think there's a recognition that they are differently informed. They're getting their information from different places. And I think the the smart journalists are reaching out and trying to get to young people where they are. But Sunny's, right. It's hard to source information on the internet. There's a that New Yorker cartoon, you know, with the dog sitting there looking at the screen thing on the internet. Nobody knows you're a dog that I think is is the issue. I'm going to actually be a little more. Concern if I were the president, I would be more concerned about the southern district, then perhaps people have have suggested sonny's, right? You can pardon people in the southern districts federal federal jurisdiction. But if I were the president, and I've been practicing law for twenty five years, if I had a client in in the president's position and the position of his businesses knowing what I know I would be very very concerned about the southern district in New York. I'll take a crack and a couple on our way out. I mean, I think the southern district is especially significant because it's an open investigation that doesn't have the time deadlines that Muller had and deals with business and financial activities. And it is where confessed election crime occurred is where other outlets, National Enquirer other arrangements other. They're off the books over the line on the line things have already been exposed. So what else is there life that do you think those were one offs? And that was the only time those things ever happened or do you think the investigators are digging into all of that? They should they have a reputation for being aggressive and independent. They should also be careful and thoughtful. I don't think they are out to take out the president United States. But I do think you could see it would be conceivable that those investigations would continue to complicate matters for some of those players in the Trump organization, but none of that I think cuts against the larger points that we discussed tonight, including constitutional accountability. And the fact that there was no chargeable collusion. But there was. And other crime on covered. All those things to me are like more macro. Where's rod Rosenstein? You know, he's packing up. He's getting out. He's no longer. Number one, which he was acting attorney general under the refusal rules. So while he's there and bar has very cleverly invoked him in the letter. But he didn't he didn't co-sign the letter, and he invokes Muller, but we don't know whether they agree or not on this stuff..
