"atlanta olympics" Discussed on Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith
"For them. And for me, it's the journey of life and the adventure of this life is sharing his message with others. Jesus is probably the reason why I do everything that I do and why I am who I am. Well, Padgett's for me in a lot of young girls, especially back then, was like the Super Bowl. For chicks, right? For girls, we did it in pageantry. And it was big, especially here in the south. I mean, there was over 70 girls in the miss Georgia pageant alone. And I was 19 and I didn't know nothing, y'all. I mean, I was that wide eyed bushy tailed dumber than a box of rocks, naive, young girl who just had a big dream to sing and perform and earn scholarship money. And so you don't know what you don't know, right? I was not the prettiest, you know, naturally beautiful young girl. So when I came home and told my mother, I was like, I'm gonna be, you know, in this Georgia and she looked at me and said, really? Not the shit that they're beautiful. But she would say she was like, you know, you've got that short hair and you get that sassy mouth. You might be a bit much for what Padgett tree is all about. You know, fast forward a year and a half lighter, I'm on the miss Georgia stage and I was so blessed to win. I mean, let me just tell y'all being in pageants is not easy. I mean, the pageant world could be intimidating it sometimes, because not only is it just a beauty pageant, so you need to look pretty. I mean, that's intimidating enough, but it's also, you know, you have to be smart. I mean, at 19, I was 19 years old, and I was competing with 27 year old women who had pediatrician practices who were doctors who were lawyers. So I only knew what I knew at 19, but there was a lot of pressure there. You know, there was a lot of times where I think I was introduced to a different life. I was so naive and so small town and I hadn't been many places or met many different kinds of people. I did have to deal with a lot of pressures and stress, but again, it was such a growing learning ground for me. And I think we all have those moments. But it's those times of growth that God puts us in, so that we go to new levels. And that's what that was for me. There was a specific moment in my life that I know for me was the first really game changing moment in my life. I had just gotten divorced. I was 23. I was 23 years old. Okay? I had been married three years. I probably made the worst decision against my mother's and father's will to marry a gentleman who I don't even blame him today. He was totally authentic and genuine. I knew who he was going in. He did not know who I was going in. I was the one that was faking who I was and what I stood for and what I was going to tolerate in a marriage, but I found myself after that divorce, sitting in an apartment off of Jimmy Carter boulevard in a not so desirable area, broke lonely in the first person ever divorced in my entire immediate and distant family. And questioning at 23, what I was going to do with my life. And I get emotional thinking about it now because I'm so grateful for that time now. Because it was the moment that my faith became not just a heritage or a family faith or a legalistic faith or a faith where it was a practice, it became a deep seated relationship with Jesus. There was one night in particular because it was during the Atlanta Olympics. And I was right down the road from some of the events that were taking place and it was so loud and you could hear it and it was music and it was just, you know, excitement in the city and I was all alone and I had this old apartment and I was sitting on that white sofa or that dingy white sofa. And I just remember feeling so alone it was in that weakness, my weakness and my mistakes and all my mess that I made in my life, all the messed it up, the big mess that I made in my life. That he took that and worked it all together for his good and for a great message in calling in my life. And look, growing up in church, I've heard that all my life. And I've believed the Bible all my life. And I've read the Bible all my life. And I've done a million felt boards, vacation Bible school, GA, RA, Sunday school lessons about all the stories in the Bible. But never has the word come so alive to me, then in that apartment in that time in my life. And what I want to say to people that are listening to this, if you're in a place or a space right now where you feel hopeless, broken alone, you're questioning your faith, your questioning, if you even believe in God or if you even have faith, hush. Just take a beat, kid still, because God is constantly wooing and speaking and guiding and leading us. We just get too busy or too broken to hear it or see it or feel it. I think that was the starting point for me. When I just let go and let God guide me, this is the funniest thing. This is just in this how God works. I was working at the apartment community and literally two streets down from that apartment was where W ATC, TV 57, the community, Christian station, was located. You know, I thought it was over for me. It was that apartment in that location. It was like, you know, God is the ultimate GPS, right? Two streets over. Was my calling and my adventure of a lifetime awaiting for me with that TV station. If I hadn't been there, Jimmy Carter broke in divorced, confused. Lonely, I would have never been at that TV station, which launched my career. You know, in my career journey and in my life, you know, I've had the show Kim of queens on lifetime and I have two brands and hugely successful and QVC very blessed there. You know, I've been administered probably 20 plus years. And every bit of that journey has been this moment of collecting confidence. And my philosophy on confidence is probably a little different than what the world tells you it should look like. You know, it's truly a Christ centered confidence, but it's also a confidence that I know who's I am and why I'm here. And I think those are the two big questions we all have. And when you can stand in those in confidence, your life really shifts and changes. You become the person that you were created and meant to be.
"atlanta olympics" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"For sure. But I'm not gonna like, I'm not shaming people that might have an outdoor dog or cat as long as they're really, really cared for. It's not what I do. But back then, our animals never came inside. If a cat happened to run inside, it was like, get them out of here. And I wasn't saying that. I was like, oh, the cat's inside the cats inside. But the notion of, and this was like even veterinary care, like if they really, really, really needed something, are animals would go to the vet. And this is like the shameful admission. This isn't I'm not trying to out my family, but this is kind of how it was is what I'm saying. But the notion of taking your animals in once a year for a checkup was just people didn't do that kind of thing back then. No, it's a really relatively new thing. And it evolved in lockstep with the amount of money that the middle class and upwards were willing to pay to take care of their pets. And the amount of pets. Yes, and I think now it's just basically anyone who has a pet takes their animal. I can't say that. So what was the last thing you said? I'm sorry. I said in the amount of pets. That's part of it too, and also I believe that veterinarians have come up with new and amazing ways to Bill you that you can spend money on your pets. Oh God bless them. We'd spend a lot of money there. For sure. And then also there's been a lot more specialization as a result. So you don't have to go to the same vet for your dog's rabies shot and to treat their tumor or something like that. There's pet oncologists, neurologists, epidemiologists, it's really something. But because veterinarians, they don't learn, essentially, as a profession, they went from being completely with all their eggs in the horse basket to totally abandoning the horse and putting it all in the pet basket. And as a result, there's a real shortage of rural veterinarians who are large animal vets that know how to work on a horse that know how to work on a cow. And I'm guessing that that's going to be something that will have to be addressed eventually. Yeah. For sure. I mean, it's really amazing how things have changed in the past 30, 40 years. And I want to shout out my vet. Can I do that? Yes. Well, I'm going to shout out Avondale veterinary hospital because they're great. We followed our doctor Stacy Stacy. Is her name? That's an awesome name. When she left our old debt to go to a new practice, we follow her there because she's so great. So big ups to doctor Stacy and doctor Graf and Michelle and Kim and Leona and Kat and Abby and Jordan and Jennifer and Kerry and everyone else who helps out there. They're awesome and more and more people are becoming and we should mention another reason that there's more veterinary care is more people are interested in becoming vets. That job has really exploded over the last 20 or 30 years. Yeah, for sure. It's good work. I guess I'll show that. We're actually torn right now because most vet left, doctor janos co, who's awesome. She went to another practice, but we love the practice that Moe's at. So much for like hemming and hauling about what to do. That's tough. See, we were ready to leave, we were getting a little frustrated with other parks, parts of the old practice. So when doctor Stacy left, we were like, oh great, this is perfect. That's awesome. That's a tough decision for you. It is. The compromise we came up with, we're just going to get, we're going to double up on everything that mo gets done. Just go to both. Yeah. One right after the other. Oh man. Double in your bet Bill. I love it. I have a little mo anecdote if you don't mind me sharing. I would love to hear about little Momo. So yumi told me just this morning that Moe has a new so you said dogs should sleep in bed with the emo definitely sleeps in bed with us. And most developed a new habit where yumi will be spooning mo. And mobile decide that she wants to get on the other side now, but rather than just get up and crawl over you and get on the other side. She wants you to spoon her, but on the other side. So she'll tap you me until she wakes up. To flip. Yeah, and gets that she needs to roll over now because Moe wants to spoon on this side. Oh boy. Yep. Mo runs us for sure. Well, you know, at least at least somebody's in charge. That's right. Are you got anything else? I got nothing else. Okay, well if you want to know more about veterinarians, go get friendly with a veterinarian and they'll tell you what you want to know. And since I said that, it's time for listener mail. All right, so I can't put it off any longer. We're going to go through some of the favorite tangents of 2022 from Ian Bowers of sandusky, Ohio. Ian put together our tangents and non sequiturs list of 2021. And we said, hey, if you want to keep doing this, we'll read it. And so Ian said, great. So here we go. I'm going to go through these pretty quick, but these are these are a fun walk down memory lane for us, because we forget these jokes all the time. The mystery of the twinbee tiles, Josh's love of the Alfred Hitchcock presents the three detectives books. The mystery of coal episode, stainless steel pickup trucks at the Atlanta Olympics and how you still haven't seen them. Yeah, that one's popped up a few times. What are land acknowledgments from May 10th? A Beastie Boys dad joke leads chuck and Josh to reciting their favorite Beastie Boys line and chuck reveals he accidentally taught his daughter in the inappropriate Beastie Boys lyric when she was too young. Did I tell you off the air? No, I don't believe you did. All right, so we're gonna take a short break and I'll let you know right now and then we'll be back in one second. Oh my goodness. Oh wow. Okay, well that was Josh's literal reaction to what I just told him. I'm so sorry everybody. What a tease. I can't tell everybody, sorry. Oh, interestingly, cats invasive species, long discussion right at the top of Josh and chuck's favorite newspaper cartoon strips. Sure, of course. May 31st, the scintillating world of interest rates, discussion of the movie The Green Knight, Lee and Josh and chuck agreeing the a 24 as a flawless streak of movie releases. Rocking, we're going to go see the whale in the theater soon and I don't want to know anything about it other than a 24 released it. Talk to me after you see it. June 7th, freedom of the press, very intricate descriptive three minute discussion of how Josh and chuck would ride a horse over a cliff arm. I remember this one. Wearing individual parachutes. I remember that too. We landed safely if I remember correctly. We did. I like that one that bugs some people though. Let me see July 5th ultra processed foods. Josh eating hot wings while wearing finger condoms. And the director chuck worked for he would eat Cheetos wearing surgical gloves as a bit. That was Tom schiller. Supernovae, July 19th. Discussion of which Brit pop bands are cool and which ones weren't. Planets sterilizing events should be our Brit pop album name is what I said. And you said zombie stars, the name of our Brit pop band. Those two still work really well. I agree. Silly string, we Josh brings up a video of a dog that got into a gorilla enclosure at a zoo. Oh yeah, that poor dog I remember that. Side note, one of Josh's looser

"That they have the outcomes that they're looking forward it's It's it's the it's it's what we should've stuck with but thanks to the oklahoma city bombing In the nineteen ninety s thanks to the to the to the bombing of olympic park during the atlanta olympics. Nine eleven happened. you know. We started to focus on terrorism right. We started to focus. And take our i off community policing in all the things that we're working that we needed to do there. And we started to really focus on on these other issues of of terrorism. And let's not forget that it was the federal government who was funding in who was giving us the training and the equipment To ensure that the homeland was protected from you know the possibility of of of terrorism. In that that i think was the biggest pivot point that we had from guardian to warrior where we started to look at everybody. That didn't look like us as kind of like. Whoa you know this person could be packing a bomb. We need to make sure that they were going to be safe in protecting our communities. I get it. I mean i think that you know the. The country went through a trauma of nine eleven. We and we were starting to tilt that way but it it it unfortunately took us completely away from the primary mission of community policing. I think that you know we need to go back to that i need. I think the. I think that we on the cusp of another. A transformational period. The same way that we have been through in the past in transformational period is one where we are going to move forward into into a place where we have better outcomes in in those heated exchanges between community members and police officers that sometimes result in tragedies i think that there are ways to mitigate that and and to minimize that so that lives aren't lost and the community or the police side that both parties can walk away from those exchanges safely.

"Just, like you said to me, he's all about Justice. Yeah, yeah. And he, and listen, he didn't rest until he brought everybody to justice for the Oklahoma City bombing for the Unabomber cake for the Atlanta Olympics bombing case. He brought marionberry to Justice back in the day, in my former office prosecuted, the mayor. And that was not an easy option to mount for any number of reasons, the man is a quiet storm, and he is determined to hold people accountable for their crimes, particularly political actors who violate their oath of office. That is Donald Trump. Yes, and it's all God and and there's so much I have to ask you. Hold on a second. There is a here it is. Don mcgahn agreed to testify regarding Trump. Threatening to fire Mueller. Yeah what happened there. I liked it. So this. It's an interesting story but we have to kind of unravel it a little bit to understand it. So Congress has been fighting in the courts for more than two years to try to get Don, mcgahn former White House counsel to testify and the courts have not been very accommodating off. So finally, they struck a deal, right? And the deal is Don mcgahn will testify in a congressional committee behind closed doors, but we will get the transcript of it a week later. So we'll see what he had to say. But he will only testify about the things that were publicly revealed in the Mueller report that feels like a concession, right? It feels like it's a little deflating because we gnomes, So much more that Don mcgahn could tell us. Here's why. I actually think it's an important step forward. The reason Congress was fighting so hard in the courts to get Don mcgahn to testify was because they were filling the void created by Bill bar protecting Donald Trump and all of us criminal Associates. So they had to fight for every scrap. Now, we have a Department of Justice that's doing the work of the American people on the law enforcement front so Congress in my estimation can actually say Okay Don Jose want to set some Mickey Mouse ground rules. It looks like we're giving up a little something fine, come on in. Talk about it. I think that's because the the Department of Justice is now digging into volume, two of the motor report, and all of those obstruction of justice charges. So the fact that we're going to get them again on the record and we're going to see the transcript of it. We're going to hear in his own words. How Donald Trump dead? Truck did Justice. We know this for a fact because Don mcgahn told Bob Mueller and it ended up in the Mueller report in volume to Trump told Magan fire. Mueller Magan said I'm not doing it because that would constitute obstruction of justice Mueller's investigating you. I can't fire. Dude was investigating you so so don mcgahn to his credit, I don't often say good things about him, refused to do it. The next thing Donald Trump did was he said, okay, McGann then go out there lie to everybody say I never told you to fire Bob Mueller and create false official documents to back up. The fact that I never told you the lie that I never told you to fire mother, John that's obstruction on top of obstruction, on top of obstruction, it's government misconduct wage. Plain and simple at least we're now going to have Don mcgahn on the record in a transcript words out of his mouth laying all that out and we can be confident..

"Doctor Colander Welcome back to another one of your very informative shows. Let's start by talking about prevention. Tell us about what we need to know about prevention and why Listeners don't know enough about it. Well, thanks, Sam Reese. Oh, not only to you, the listeners not know anything about prevention. Apparently, nobody knows anything about prevention. I want to kind of talk about what we do in the context of this. Four minute video I saw when I We went to Miami over the weekend, as you know, and I saw this video on the airplane about Michael Johnson. Do you know who he is? Don't because I don't know anything about so we're in America and this Mike Michael Johnson is a Olympic athlete, and he won the 200 M of the 400 M. And like in the Atlanta Olympics, and he was the fastest man alive. He might still be at those distances. And so here you have a superior athlete. Still running training gyms, and he's coaching people from all over the world in track and field, and I didn't know this, but he had a stroke. So what age How old is he? Well, I don't know. So you know, you know, when was 96 you know he was probably 22 years. 2020 something years old and 96 when he was training in running those races, So you know, that means he's you know, fifties late fifties But he's been an athlete for how long his whole life he's still training people, so he's training people to be world class athletes as a world class athlete. Okay. But here's my question. You say that heart attack and stroke or 100% preventable. These athletes are put through very rigorous medical examinations. I would imagine to make sure they're To compete. What happened here? Why did this fall through the cracks? Well, there's that and also the concept of here. You have a guy who's in ridiculous shape, so we all make assumptions. Well, if I eat healthy if I'm thin if I exercise then I'm okay. So that's apparently what Michael Johnson thought, because no one plans have a stroke. And so here's this guy and, you know, maybe can I don't hold fibula is a 55 or older and he has a stroke. That's not in his game plan. And if you thought in any way that he was at risk of having a stroke, he would have done everything in his ability to not have a stroke, yet he has a stroke. Okay. But here's my question to you again. These athletes are put through rigorous premed medical examinations on D. Why was this not caught? Why would they not have caught the fact that he was at risk for a stroke? Because you've said many times that the technology is there. We're able to prevent stroke and what happened in his case, because I'm more than sure that he saw a boatload of doctors and he's in it, I think is in Atlanta, but anyway I'm not his doctor, So I don't know why he missed Why this is missing a few. What if I was his doctor? He wouldn't have been missed. You wouldn't have had a stroke, We would have figured out What was going on with his arteries. We would have identified all the root causes of inflammation that can affect his arteries, and he would not have had a stroke. I Congar anti that. Now. Why wasn't this person who's a you know? International figure not have the kind of health care that can identify him as being at risk for having a stroke in the phenomenal shape that he's in. The answer is is that health care does not prevent disease and I don't care who you are or what Doctor you're seeing if you're in a traditional system. Nobody knows how to prevent chronic illness. So you're in a reactionary system as opposed to a pro active system, and no one is looking at the right type of testing the right kind of blood work. Who identify your risk and take the right action. Well, you've said a million times before on, you know, prior shows that heart attack and stroke or 100% preventable. So what you're telling me is the technology is out there. Why is the doctor not using this technology, the doctors that are treating people like him? And just general physicians. Well, we're all well, I'm gonna say we're not We. I'm not a slave to the health care system because I made choices to put myself in position to do the right things for all my patients. What if you're seeing a doctor who is part of the health care system and they are taking insurance than insurance does not pay for prevention, so of insurance is involved. Warrior doctors involved in a system in some way that takes money from companies involved in the system. Then they're not practicing prevention, either, because All of the things that we're doing to prevent chronic illness and serious events are simple. They're simple to identify their simple blood work to follow, and unfortunately, no one really makes money at those things. You think patients are being Hoodwinked by the health care system here into thinking that they are getting superior health care and that these types of things would be diagnosed that the regular visits? That is a whole other can of worms. So good. We may not be the right kind of word. I think it sounds pretty good. It does sound good, but everyone knows they're being screwed. You think? Yeah, Everyone knows that. They're being screwed by the time everyone we're all patients. Your patient, I'm a patient. My patients or patients were all patients, and we're all being totally screwed by the health care system. We just don't know what to do about it. That's a problem. People don't know what to do when you watch a video with and Michael Johnson doesn't know what to do. That's a big problem. Let's come back and talk about what what we need.

Gotham Awards: 'Marriage Story,' 'The Farewell,' 'Uncut Gems' Lead Nominations
"Okay Amanda the Gotham awards what do you know about the Gospel awards they are New York based yes is Gotham is a stand in for New York and uh-huh well done thank you and they are an indie film awards and they always have the ceremony pretty early in the season and their speed teaches are often really vibrant and kind of make some noise that people are usually recapping them are doing videos of the acceptance speeches that's right the nominations are usually driven by journalists and critics whereas the awards themselves are usually chosen by people in the New York Film Community this year's collection of films is sure thing and I think it highlights the New York versus La Aspect of this award show I would say that this is a very good collection of films but not terribly represented of of where Oscar is going to be going this year so let's just mentioned a couple of the categories we can talk about what we see and if any of this really ultimately matters to the big race that we talk about on the show all the time so for best feature Lulu longs farewell The safdie brothers uncut gems trae rituals waves Noah Baumbach marriage story and Lawrence Ghaffari as hustlers now as a human man these are five of my favorite movies of the year you truly love to see you love to see it now Ah I think this list has been somewhat criticized for being the eight twenty four awards share and also Noah Baumbach a former eight hundred four filmmaker himself so there's a lot of lineage there but I don't necessarily I mean I think marriage story is pretty much a lock for best picture and you've got a chance to see it over the weekend so that we may be we can t some of that conversation talk about it but yes these other films I think the farewells probably the one that has been tabbed to have the best chance at best picture but do you see a world in which I guess these early awards shows do more than just you know sort of celebrate the films that we expect to not be recognized come Globes and an Oscar season or or do you think that this is just a forebear to what's coming I think this is probably people sharing their passions for the most part and doesn't shift a lot the only notable storyline in the future category for me as Hustler's being here because that means that people really are taking it seriously as a a capital f film in addition to a great kind unexpected box office hit featuring Jennifer Lopez sue and we talked about that a little bit of the time of Jennifer Lopez seems like an Oscar contender people take it seriously it seemed like the answer to that is yes in some ways yes but on the other hand Jennifer Lopez not nominated for Gotham you know just kind of fascinating what are you going to do with you ran does in the film community I don't know it is people expressing themselves yeah I mean there's a lot of very admirable choices kind of up and down we don't have to run through every single category here I think one thing I like about the Gotham is is that it does a lot of awards that I really wish the Oscars would do for example they have the Bingham Ray breakthrough director award and the nominees here are kind of interesting collection of people couple of films I haven't even seen Lord Clermont on Air am I pronouncing that correctly thank you can Jones's here we had him on the show earlier this year Joe Talbot from the last Bachman in San Francisco also on the show Olivia Wilde this year for book smart and films for burning came which is a film I haven't even seen yet which is yeah been released so that this is sort of like in the spirit of the indie spirits meets the Oscars meets the New York film critics are I tend to think of this award show and I think the award selves our health quite early at the end of this year as opposed to early next year and you'll be able to stream them live on the Internet and you'll get to see some of those acceptance speeches that talking about but it does feel a little bit of a lucky to be here kind of award Andre Holland you're nominated for high flying bird and be pretty surprised Andre Holmes nominated for best actor Best Actress Likewise Mary Kay Place for Diana Elisabeth Moss for her smell these are performances that will be on craigslist MHM maybe on your lists I haven't seen her smile yet I need to do that I will do that before the end of the year I'm saying it in public so that will actually happen and probably how do you feel about being in this moment this period of award season where we're like right at the were at the gates worth the Don excited I think you and I kind of went through a marathon in the last week and so we have seen most everything which is great there are a few outstanding films talk about and there are a few on my list that I haven't seen because they were at festivals and haven't really been screening for critics yet but we've seen a majority of things and I definitely just had a week where I just saw elise and I was like wow cinema I was very moved by a lot of films that I saw and so in that sense I feel hopeful and excited and you're like movies are great we have all the movies and then I started trying to make my Oscar predictions and started thinking about all of the politics and like reading from what Academy voters I had to say and it creeping sense of dread also and anger and resentment started creeping in so I would say it's a complex emotional time for me personally how are you feeling I have the same exact feeling as you and it's for that reason that we have decided at the back half of this show to make predictions make bold reckless quite likely very stupid predict predictions because as you said we've seen almost everything last week you and I got a chance to see the Irishman let me just tell you the Irishman is good. You should see the Irishman you had a chance to see marriage three yes we had a chance to see knives out which I don't think we'll be a part of the awards conversation but which was fantastic it lived up to my hopes and dreams have been screaming about it on a podcast for two months so those to receive we see something else we saw little women little women of course of course little women so all of these movies have now been put in front of us let here's here's a very short list of the movies that neither of us have seen thus more because we've done a pretty good job of doing our homework to this moment but so far we still haven't seen nineteen seventeen seventy four one film we haven't ritual Clint Eastwood's portrait of the man who was accused of the Atlanta Olympics bombing we haven't seen cats it's fine that you put this on this sliced by Mattia cats cats come in cat season is nearly upon us we haven't seen dark waters which I think is going to start screening this week we've not seen star wars episode nine the rise of Skywalker uh-huh I did read a bit of box office prognostication about episode nine today it was kind of kind of kind of grim interesting it was like this will is on track to be the lowest grossing of the sued thus far on its opening weekend maybe it's because everybody knows what's GonNa Happen I read some fan fiction or not some fan fiction no like can we just used to lead them into it yeah I read some fan fiction you know what I read some predictions based on nothing speculation is what I read about Star Wars that was essentially conviction and I got really upset about it I told you about this already we had this conversation with no let's not do that yeah but I don't know it people I it seems like people are interested in what happens I'm interested in what happens was the was it that ray is a rookie was it no it's Ray in Cairo and fuck just like the weight again pure speculation but let me go on record saying I do not want this as the really casual star wars fan who does can't remember the title of Episode Nine Not for me it's not what you want the only other movie I can think of that we haven't seen that is going to be competing this year barring maybe you're frozen to in the atom akara categories clemency which is Alfred movie that premiered at Sundance and has gotten reviews and I it was pointed out to me that there to death row movies this year with just mercy and clemency which is kind of interesting but that's only six movies between the two of US we've done a nice job hopefully we'll have a peaceful December probably not as we go through all of our takes which of these sixty think is most likely to to mess up the the narrative is we're going to break down later in the show I have on the document that I made I have one thousand nine hundred seventeen written several different times with like twenty question marks it was I just I don't know what to do with it. It is obviously a world war one epic with really athletic filmmaker gang directed by Salmon News which is Oscar Bait shot by Roger Deakins which is how you know it really is and they haven't they're releasing the behind the scenes rich of him just like running and trenches they're really leaning into we worked really hard to make us you know and it's a very showy style of directing yes their narrative is the effort yes which is an interesting thing we hear a different version of that with someone like Joaquin Phoenix and his performance in the joker we heard all about how he lost fifty pounds and he contorted his body and he I mean this physical transformation this is the full-scale movie version right of what sacrifices were made to achieve something yes and it's so funny because the the movie is not out for still another three months but I think that's really smart and the reason I have twenty question marks is because is it too late in the Oscar season to kind of really breakthrough because the people haven't seen it and the Oscars season is like a full months earlier this year and then was your so we're in a really crunched situation I think we have learned time and time again that it is harder the later you get in the season more crowded it is it's harder to get people invested in your movie you've just created a wonderful segue for our next segment let's go to stock stock down if it goes bust you can make ten to one twenty
