What's behind Trump's decision to withdraw troops abroad
"Announced yesterday that it will continue to withdraw U. S troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, leaving 2500 and each nation by January. 15th. Moved through bipartisan rebukes from lawmakers and some top military commanders who say the troop reduction is premature and could further destabilize Afghanistan. In particular. The announcement comes as President Trump continues to install loyalists at the Pentagon and a week after he fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper. Going to talk about what's behind the with the drawdown in Iraq and Afghanistan and other foreign and military policy decisions that the Trump Administration is making in this lame duck period. And joining us is Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations. His most recent book is The world. A brief introduction and welcome back to form Richard House. Good to have you Always good to be with you, Michael. And let's begin by talking about this pull back, and I should mention we're not only talking about Afghanistan and Iraq. We're also talking about Somalia. But this is being done at a time January 15th, which is just days before five days before The Biden administration will presumably be moving in now in limbo. And what does that mean in terms of national security that there's no transition yet? Well, there's no upside the fact that there's no transition Can only hurt whoever. Whenever Joe Biden does take over and let's just say January 20th, he's going to inherit an extraordinarily difficult in box. And the more time he and his team have to prepare for it, The better the country will be, so there's nothing to be gained by delaying the transition. The array of international challenges is Is extraordinary. In terms of what you began the show with you set it up exactly right. This is being determined not by local conditions unless by local you mean the trump White House. This is a political calendar rather than on the ground conditions in Afghanistan or Iraq or anywhere else. It's inappropriate. I would argue to do this during any transition. Again. What's what's driving this? I believe it's always dangerous toe project with my I believe it's Mr Trump's desire to make good. On certain promises he made. It's consistent with his world view, which tends to be relatively unilateralists, an isolationist, but it will not be good either for the situation in any of these countries or for America's long term efforts, among other things, against terrorism or for our reputation for reliability. Well, let's talk about some of those concerns because they are profound, and they're certainly deep in so many ways, And we should mention perhaps the fact that the president had promised to get troops up. My Christmas is just cutting them in half. But the last time there was a major pullout from Iraq, it led to the rise of the Islamic state there and in Syria, and there's great concern and understandably so about well the Taliban taking over as they did in 1996, possibly in Afghanistan, or for that matter, Afghanistan being a sanctuary for terrorism, not only because of Al Qaeda but because of Isis and, well, the Taliban itself. Look, all those concerns are warranted. I wish I could argue differently, but I can't. What's particularly ironic in Iraq is not only is this You know, we have some history to go by, as you suggest that weakens the ability to fight terrorism. What the administration is concerned about Iranian influence. This seems to me a page the way for increased Iranian influence in Iraq, so even by their own lights. This makes this makes no sense and Afghanistan is really bad. You know. They signed an agreement in February with the Taliban, They bypassed the government. Which in and of itself was bad. It's not a peace agreement that would claims to be. It really is an American withdrawal agreement. The Taliban did not have to give up their arms to not have to agree to. Ah, Ceasefire and they made rhetorical pledges about their relationship with terrorists. But you can't take any of those toe to the bank. Ah, this is really after all we've done in Afghanistan, including the stakes were, you know, I'm prepared to argue that the United States overreach there and trying to remake aspects of the country. But this is this is the opposite mistake. This is under reaching and I hate for that, but that the idea come that down the road, some future administration BIA, Joe Biden's or someone after him. They have to contemplate doing things in places like Iraq or Somalia or Afghanistan simply because the Trump Administration race to the exits and we should mention since you brought up Somalia that the timing on this is really terrible, because There's actually a parliamentary elections that you're coming up soon in about a month, and there's a concern that counterterrorism there of Shabaab led counterterrorism could He stalled working against you, Bob, but this was why getting back to Afghanistan from over. This is why Marcus for the secretary defense was fired. He was concerned about the effects of a rapid pullout on the troops and the remaining What That would mean in terms of our alliance is, but also there's ongoing peace negotiations between the Taliban and the Afghan government that are pretty crucial here, too. Are there There's negotiations going on. I'm skeptical about them. But even if you were a believer in these negotiations Can't think of a worse way to negotiate then to unilaterally make these kinds of reductions. I mean, Mr Trump is renowned for quote unquote. The art of the deal. Well, you'll get a deal here, but you won't get a deal That's worth the paper. It's written on. It won't last the Taliban will have no incentive. T meet its commitments and at this risk the moralizing and undermining the government. What we ought to be doing overtime is potentially reducing our presence. We ought to do it in a coordinated, coordinated way with the government with our NATO allies were also there on the ground. There ought to be done in conjunction with significant long term commitments of military aid, economic support intelligence sport. Essentially, it ought to be coordinated and it ought to be carried out on Lee in a context. In which stability and our interest could be protected. This is a textbook case of how not to go about it. And I'm struck also Richard by the fact that there have been attacks despite this agreement that was signed in February, this diplomatic agreement. On personnel. The coalition personnel even though it was signed, and there have also been let's go to Iraq for a moment rockets fired into the Green Zone in Baghdad near the US Embassy shortly after that withdrawal was announced, so A lot of this is pretty ominous in many ways, and certainly ought to be a great concern. I want also, look at this with you for a moment. From the political standpoint, you have a lot of President Trump's fellow Republicans who were balking at this, including Mitch McConnell. That to me is the only bright side of this. Is that it shows that there is a degree of bipartisan support for first serious foreign policy, which includes, Ah continued American presence in the world, one dimension of which is his military. So the fact that these Republicans on the hill are willing to stand up to President Trump, at least in this domain is welcome and also bodes well for the Biden foreign policy for the Biden administration. I'm not naive. I know how difficult it will be in many areas to forge a common policy path but a matters towards China on matters towards Russia on some aspects of American deployments abroad. This suggests to me that the Biden administration and are even if the Republicans keep the Senate after the Georgia votes. Suggests to me that at least in some areas, bipartisanship in foreign policy is is a real possibility nicely

Let's hear what he has to say. Gold. Be honest. Go for it. Don't be afraid to approach somebody don't be afraid to walk up to the prettiest girl in the bar. Or a good looking guy, because guess what? They're probably lonely, too, And they probably just want a conversation, but no one has the guts to walk up and approach them. What's the worst thing regret? That's the worst thing does the same go? Here's a question does the same go for sliding Indians? Or making or making digital contact with someone email. I don't think it's the same. I wouldn't think so, because I feel like that's not very ballsy. I feel like walking up to somebody who really takes more. But what if you don't have the opportunity to walk up to them? Like what? If what if Yes. If you're in the same room with somebody you should walk up to them and I d on them. But like, let's say you see odd person or you become aware of a hot person on do sleight of diem. Mean awards the worst that happens first at them or No, Maybe not. I'm asking. This is hypothetical. Let's say no. Let's say I see them in another post store. Whatever I mean, so so you slide the DEA. What are you saying? Like what? Somebody's post. Yeah, like, yeah, Like, think you're really pretty. Do you wantto? Would you ever want to hang out like is that objectionable? Because the worst that happens is they don't respond, which is you're a response or they write back. I get a boyfriend or no. And then you leave it obviously. Then you leave it. There's nothing else to say. But Is it the same? Ah, I'm not. I have not done this. What I have done. I have, of course have done this, But I'm asking. You know if I'm not one for proper etiquette very often, So I would rather like if you stop being a post like you have a friend and you saw me in a post. You think I'm cute? Whatever you want to ask me out. I would rather that you go through the mutual person that we want you or would you just rather that person be direct boulder to be direct? Yeah, but like you can slide in the DMZ. I don't know if you're a creep like I would rather go through the mutual friend or foe. I doubt my status. He if they think we would be, you know that that route Kalen Paula, any votes on this? The sliding in the DMZ? I still think the worst that happens. Is that the person just ignores you. And then there's there's your response. And by the way, if they ignore you, then they go around telling people he slid, which happens all the time that that so don't slide. I don't really have friends, but they could also screen shot and Call you creep on their instagram. But that's the question of my really a creep. If I advice line your GM and say, Hey, I'm a crazy if I said to depict I'm a creep. I'm looking in your window, My creep. If I'm just like, Hey, what's up, And then you're responsible.

So like, follow her, there shall follow back. Maybe. Then let you like Couple pictures here and there. Yeah, Like like, Be friendly.

If you didn't think there was some cachet or some value in me doing it if you didn't care, and I'm a nobody and I slide your DMS and you're sitting around Screenshots of it Well, then, well, you wouldn't do that for just anybody. You would only do that if it's somebody who you want people to know that they asked you, which, in some ways is flattering. Even though they think they're dissing you don'thave saying. I think if you're really interested, though, like I've had I've taken pictures, You know, like group pictures with my girlfriends. They're hot, and I'll have somebody that I know that doesn't know my friends be like, Hey, What's the story with? You know that girl in your picture with a pink skirt or whatever. And you think?

Melatonin, CBD, Creatine, and Immunity Boosts
"Chris Welcome welcome to another episode of. Ask The guys here. We have a title. So here we are. This is what I would we do. Five or six other episodes like this before it's been a while and well we've done. One and people have been asking so you are again Chris is. Chris Irvine. On that nailed it the Kitale tallest. Trying to new break out a little bit more and changes named you just name. We talk about so. Talk about what you're stuck. We'll talk about it off off off Mike. Be Out. We're GONNA. Talk about stuff. Hopefully, not everything Joseph's. Chris's our resident expert here. BIA curiosity so cuny time. This one is about supplements if we got a lot of questions about. Settlements how to use them when to use themselves. Fire him off to see. We have all right so first question we have is from Heather N. and the question is should I supplement with Melatonin? If I'm having trouble sleeping so I would say no, and we can this. This is in my newsletter couple of weeks ago I. Don't know if you read that, but tour down a little bit. MELATONIN has its place. It is a precursor to a letter to the. Is Naturally secreted by your brain anything that's naturally secreted by your brain. I'm not a huge fan of. Taking Sasha Sisley. This is actually if you look at it, it's the only hormone that you can get without a prescription. Technically. Hormone your body. It's the only way you can get without a prescription interesting, yeah! I mean I. think my thoughts with Milton I think the answers that depends because I think it depends on. If you are living a lifestyle that allows you to produce it naturally so I think if you're a night shift worker, or you're somebody who is able to. You know if you're not, it's not the first step you should take if you're having trouble sleeping so I if you if you're not checking the boxes. With you're trying to improve your sleep quality then you shouldn't be turning Melatonin, but if you are work your work, circumstances are living circumstances. Have you in a position where you aren't going to be able to produce a lot of Melatonin? Naturally then I think you prior getting good sleep is going to be important, and if Melatonin can help that I think it can be a good song. Yeah, so the question is what is melting do and how is it? Producing one is produced by the body naturally. Melatonin essentially just tell you about it activates cascade of different Newark. Chemicals screwed that basically tell you buy. It's time to go to sleep. At screened by Pinal Gland I believe. And it is. Associate with a lot of things, light is major one. So what happens is most people don't. Fall Asleep with the sunset right and so the sun normally go down in all human history, and for every other analysts happens. By starts up regulating melatonin. melatonin sort of master switched. Those tells the rest of your body's going down and shutting down for arrest. When this doesn't happen. Can Be hard to go to sleep, and only that cannot stop you from getting into different stages of sleep as fast as you normally would, so you may be unconscious, but that doesn't mean you're getting the restorative sleep that you normally would so. Why is this problem? While people are after the sun goes down, they're exposed to blue light on their screens fluorescent lights in their house. The suppresses Melatonin production. So if that's the case, you have no other option. Maybe it's a good idea to take it I would take it regularly, but it at the same exact time. You shouldn't be producing it all over the place, so it shouldn't be off the map like. If you're taking Melatonin and you taking it one eight PM. One at ten PM. One and seven PM. In place you basically telling your brand that you're traveling in time zones back and forth and back and forth so I would focus far more on this is a last resort, and for special circumstances moving which we can get into, but the number one thing that I do when I go somewhere as If I have blue light, blocking glasses I blue blocks. and. There's a bunch out there. That's the ones I prefer. If I can't control the lights on my house. I've liked that dim when the sun sets and turn red and orange, after the sun has set, so those are wavelengths that do not. Suppress, Melatonin and this why the lends them blue light blocking glasses, the sandy fill blue light. You think about it like if you're outside at a campfire. The Ladies Very. Orangish, Yellowish Reddish Hue, there's very little to no blue light in there, so that's all from the sun so. Removing that from your day to day, life in is consistently as possible so that way you're not getting these weird signals of your body that you're switching time zones against another completely natural thing for humans to go through. That would be a huge thing, but I think there's a Lotta other things why people aren't getting good sleep, and so assuming that it's because of your lack of Melatonin production is i. think a little silly I think that you could look at. Obviously light is a huge one temperature of your room and then. The ability for light the in your house from. Blue. Blue. I'm trying to your. Shades. blockers no time. Look. light-blocking shades trying to say here. Oh blackout curtains blackout. So those are a good thing, and then we have lights actually if you're in a city where there's a lot of additional light, yeah, we have then lights that turn on the sunlight. One Sunrise should be happening. So this is another. Thing that happens. Has People Get Blackout Curtains? And then they don't wake up to the sun, which is again? In the wrong direction, so we actually have lights that turn on. As the sun rises locally, so you can just do all this stuff is super easy, Philips. Hue Lights, but we have. Great and Eating Super Close about times and I WANNA. Thank people you way too close to bed. I put at least three hours before you try to shut down and mental stimulation is also too much, so people are worried about this at that looking at the news. They're watching TV. They're just in. There had even hanging out with friends like I've done last couple of nights. You know people talk. Nine nine thirty s usually go to bed then I get home and it looks super stimulated. I can't sold out for a couple of hours. There's a lot of reasons why people wouldn't be able to sleep or feeling Russ restless. Having lack of militant brushes by news worry about? Your thoughts here. Will agree with that I. Think the the two things I would add to. That I agree that like I think it's a last ditch. Thing that you need to try. There's a of other things you can get in check with your environment and with your health habits before you need to turn to that supplementation. Do things I would add for helping is. Sleeping with your phone either out of room, or at least face down or not sleeping with the television on. There's some really interesting research out there that even when your eyelids are closed in your sleeping, flashing lights can cause face shifts in your circadian rhythms that can suppress Melatonin production or ramp up cortisol in the middle of the night. Things like that so. That's can be as simple as having your phone facing up and it lighting up while you're sleeping. That can completely threw off your sleep. So I thought that was really interesting thing when I was reading that studies. That would be a big thing. To consider and then. There's there is some interesting research on Melatonin for neuro degenerative diseases where you know, it seems like as we age, our natural production of Melatonin starts to decrease in. They've done studies where supplementing with it in elderly populations really increases cognitive function. That actually just came out this year I. Think showing that so like you said I think it's either. It's either a last ditch effort, supplement or something used for very specific circumstances.
Ford employees ask the company to stop making police cars
"Motor Company is out with a Ah, process that they're going through about 100 employees have gone public with their request to the automaker to stop selling police vehicles because Police are brutal and they're racist. Ford executives are weighing the request and have not yet made an announcement. But there's a lot of pressure on social media for Ford to tell police departments they will no longer sell. The vehicles to them. So what is Toyota get vehicles them selling, you know, picking up the slack market share because right now serious, San Diego has Toyota four runners the SUVs. So I mean, thie employees air urging the cut that their boss the company do not make and sell. Ah police units. Ah, police cruisers to city so that Some other. There's still gonna be police cars. Why would you not want to get your fair share of that market place? If your employees of Ford apparently, these people don't want their jobs, I mean, I would put them on the top of the list of fire. All right, somebody safe and your name to the layoff list If we lose the contract, you know, with the Tuscaloosa, Alabama Police Department that you're the 1st 1 to relinquish your well, why don't you just quit forward then? I mean, why? Why? Why does four have to stop making the product? That's what they're in the business of doing is making automobiles. Yeah. Bia Social Justice warrior full time. You don't need to work out. Ford, you know, support is not consistent with your values. So be a social justice warrior. Put your money where your mouth is and quit your job, mate. This This is absurd. I've decided. I don't like it. Don't don't want to give Ah police Cruiser to Ah! Ah, car to the police. But does that mean that you also are going to use 901? I'd love to get the name of the 100 people and block their ability from their cell phone to dial 911 is apparently where they don't need no police and there's their community. They don't need cars. They don't need police. So no. 911 for you. I mean, this is where you start pointing out the Um, the bankruptcy of some of these folks in terms of what they're saying, their advocate and and the absolute absolute juvenile nature of these causes. I mean, this is child's play, right? I mean, this's not thoughtful. This isn't academic. This isn't deep. This isn't even You know, argumentative. I mean, this is this is just this is foolishness. This is this is child's play. The head of Ford has sent a letter to employees and it it reads in part, quote as we meet weekly in our global team huddles. Invariably there are questions that don't get answered, given the short time we have together. Or simply would be better addressed off line. On it goes on to talk about. Ah Ah, you know the fact that quote Bill Ford, and I believe deeply that there is no room for systemic repression and racism that have been exhibited by law enforcement encounters gone wrong. Um Your your product had nothing to do with it. Why are you taking ownership of part of the problem? You made the car. You didn't make the police officer or even the police officer's equipment or the rule book and I go back to having a CEO of a company. Come out with a statement like that. That that somehow they've made the judgment that racism was driving. Ah, ah, the inappropriate use of force. Again. I don't think we can say that. I think it's nice to say Well, if the cop is white, and the suspect was black, the victim was black. So therefore it must be racism. That's a pretty lousy assumption to be making. And to have a CEO of one of our largest companies come out and basically validate that and then go on in a what is a nine paragraph letter explaining how they're wrestling with this decision about literally saying we're not gonna sell cars to a pretty significant portion. You know, we had at least I think 600 800 cars. Andi. I know that these are not cheap cars. So let's say that there because they're there outfitted with a bunch of special equipment and stuff. So let's say that these cars are 50 grand each for the city of San Diego. Alone. That's a $40 million hit for Ford. For just a cycle of vehicles $40 million. That's just for San Diego Police department, then multiply that by all the police departments across the country. Your shareholder and Ford. Relatively ticked. Out on the opposite end of the spectrum. I'm not a shareholder in Ford. I'm relatively ticked. I'm just relatively tick that the company is taking this kind of stance. Whether they're toward with their emotions. It's the car. It isn't the attitude of the law enforcement official. It isn't It isn't anybody. It's it's the inanimate object, but yet they feel like that. Somehow they're contributing to systemic racism by manufacturing, a police unit. Now on the other end of the spectrum. A CEO of a food company paid a small compliment to President Trump. A Rose Garden ceremony yesterday. And now he is facing calls for resignation, and even members of Congress have urged people to boycott the food manufacturer.

You pitch me a region of Namibia. We haven't talked about in the two episodes that we have done on this South African country. Where are we going to talk about today? The region of Namibia that I am Kim to talk about today is a place called so so so so sleigh is essentially said a marshes. That's located in the southern part of the KNOB alip desert and it's basically a large salt and Klee Pan So it's nearer the Arab desert abbots into the Kalahari and it's one of the many of blaze which actually means marsh not valley along with deadly in hidden lay in the desert excellent.

Nine points and that broke broke in two hundred thirty game double digit scoring streak. Here he is talking about Portland's foreign eighth star. Take a look here. The quotas every season is bad stretches. It's good stretches and especially for us we always find a way to turn it around. I think that's why I'm able to people level head and still be confident that we can find our way because we have done it so many times. uh-huh all right guys. Do you think that statement from Dame bs or we'll talk we got we got. ooh This is. This is one of those things. That's accurate here. Put Not true him saying we always find a way to turn around is true. They have done that. But you're not saying about this particular time By the way as a quick aside how about the raptors. Play the Lakers. Lebron to play the clippers would say lost Dame Lillard. They hold the combined those three stars they the hold him to thirty four points on twenty four percent shooting over those three games without. Wow How lowry. They lost two starters on this trip but anyway the blazers have you've done this before they have gotten off to bed starts and turn it around. I especially feel optimistic about this year.

"Do you wanna go to sum up? What I feel like it's yeah, exactly. I just feel like yet to piggyback that I think that his portrayal was a hindrance. It wasn't even good like the jokes that he did weren't even good of the stereotype. You know what I mean? There's good hood stereotype like, oh, it's so hood. And then there's that joke and it could still be good, and he wasn't even bad at that. So it's just corny, man. It was just nothing about this was honest. I mean nothing about this. Nothing about this movie was honest. I don't see how it would push anything forward. I Don. I wouldn't watch none of the people in this were at their best. I wouldn't watch any of the black people in this and be like, oh, you know what essence Atkins was really good, haunted house. Somebody put her in something like it was all. Yeah, just a terrible, terrible movie. Yeah. I mean, like I said, like I can watch Marlin clown for ever. It'll always be funny to me and so like big upset him for what for his attempt with this movie and like, you know, congrats on the money that he made from it because I think that even though like Marlin never disappeared. This was sort of a part of resurgence for him, you know? And he's sort of still writing that and still working towards. Future in the game, you know, in a maintaining a staple in the game, you know. But like, yeah, like they're just too many things that are bad portrayal about this movie. I was close to giving it a palm because just out of like, yeah, like black leads, etcetera, etcetera. Like he was a black cruise, right? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, the director and the writer co writer are both white, but but yeah, probably probably black clue. Everyone else. And then like, you know how many times you see, Robin, and if you're not Crockett and just hanging out in a movie like, so, you know, I almost gave it a palm for that, but there are just too many things about it where it's like where it's like we don't. I don't want that to be how black people are perceived. Like we think hope Afo BIA's this we, you know what David was saying earlier about, like just how many people watch these kinds of movies to to make fun of black people. And it's it's such a hard line to, you know, it's hard line because like like the thing that I was so upset about earlier, like, shouldn't we just support all black every right, like it's like, yeah, we, yeah, we should support black entrepreneurship in like black people in films. And so I'm glad that like we rented this movie so that we can watch, you know, I'm glad about that. But I felt the same thing with whoa cash. Like I like the first thirty minutes of. Okay. And then the rest of, okay, I was like, oh, he's he's joking about that stuff and I didn't, and I. Just didn't understand why that is something that he's still finds funny. So I, I respect Marlin and still following him, but it was. It's like so hard that he thinks some of these things are funny. It's just it's, it's not funny, and I think he needs to be better about that. Yeah. So, yeah, I gave it a palm and the reason I gave a poem because it's employing people got a sequel and. I do think it keeps people working, which allows them to keep their sag card. Insurance. Allows them to maybe try to break out. Right. But the reason I gave it a pump is because they do to break out because this is a trap, you know, like and this trap happened, so had actors too, but it's really hard when it happens blog. I actors when you get trapped in these kind of universes, and people just think of you as you're the dude, who does those dumb spoof movies or you're the, you know what I mean?.

"Ardi bravely stood up for writer. Kater Gordon after she made claims that her boss, Matthew whiner Astor to remove her clothes while working on madman. She said the experience of supporting Gordon was terrifying. She talked about the experience of supporting cater. Oh, that that's interesting, because very few people ask about the experience of it. You know, it was to be to be perfectly honest. I had spoken other people around the show and said, I wonder if stuff is gonna come out because it was a environment where jokes and things like that were thrown around, quote, unquote jokes in an environment where we also didn't have any job security and were often told we weren't, you know, good enough at our jobs. But in the next breath, we were indispensable. So it was that kind of thing where you never felt secure and you have to remember, we were on the hottest show on television. We were the white hot center and and people at cater had no sense of job security. This was her first big job and she, you know, one of the jobs I had on a regular basis was talking to these young women about like, you can leave like, you can leave if this is too much for you. If this felt like. A kind of hazing, and then when you add a sexual component on top of it, even if it's quote unquote joking, you know, I know for instance, the cater brought up that particular instance, because it was it was illegal what he said. You know. So I knew that it was more than likely that he said exactly what you report, and she was not the kind of person to to put this out there lately. And I knew that the atmosphere was one where p where the women in particular felt very insecure and that that was part of the culture. But I, I was tortured because, you know, I admire, Matt, I I, you know, I struggled with whether to stay there not because there was so much good that also, you know, you had to constantly like outweigh, but it was that thing of like this, this you're working with someone who is so unregulated and you don't know what to take seriously and whatnot to take seriously. So. I felt after I just felt like, look, she's hanging out there with her house, you know, hang out all by herself, and there's a lot of whispering about who cast the stature tobacco up, you know, and and on top of it, he started to attack her talent while he was doing a book tour, and that was the deciding moment publicly. Oh yeah. And I and I was like, you know what? He never attacked her talent ever until you know he, he was no longer interested in working with her. So you know, I waited all out and I kind of ultimate. I was like, what I want to tell my kids, I did, you know? And it was very detrimental to some of my relationships because we all run in the same circles, but I didn't want to be the kind of person who talks about being brave. Any circumstances in the BIA fucking loser. I think one thing entertainment doesn't really get enough credit for is that when you let people enjoy experience when they you when you disarm them and they're laughing and delighted, you can kind of in the same way where I feed my dogs of, you know, Pil with, you know, stuck inside cream cheese. Yes, exactly. You know it can be an agent of change. Yeah, that not nobody really talks about. Yeah, I think that's probably the most subversive way of of, you know, of making change because it's not overt, and they're such a large scale, you're able to do it on and you can kind of like it's kind of the enzyme for the learnings in a way ends. I just, you know, I and it's also responsibility. Well, what do you consider that responsibly?.

"As well with soap magazines where actually they spoil awful you before it's even on a no one ever complains about that. The week four, a major character death in EastEnders thou BIA they'll be a TV, whatever magazine cover line about every every little detail. So, yeah, it's weird things of acceptable to spoil them more on. But yeah, and it's funny to me will so how how the BBC decides to put stuff out is you're saying like kidding. Eve has gone up his book set on three with some shows like with with fleabag that went up online BBC, three whole series, one drop, or I think actually maybe right the beginning it was released week by week onto three. And then it was up as a book, Seth ages, and then they gave it a primetime slot on ABC too because it was so popular and they were like Archie Disraeli serious, amazing show that we need to get out of people on. It's interesting to me that they haven't yet done that with Kate uneven seem to have no plans to that with kidding eve, which I feel like had been given the push that bodyguard has been given. So clearly a false superior program. I'm sure it was a lot more expensive to make because it came by the American via the BBC. And it's just so much better and yet they haven't pushed it in the same way as bodyguards. So it hasn't been given the same opportunity to become this massive water cooler program. It's not far on people are watching talking about it, but I just felt so immediately dispirited that bodyguard was getting all the attention I wanted killing get. 'cause I just love that crime thriller and think it's about a crime thriller. Yes, absolutely. So I think we will say that from now on you can expect full spoilers foot bodyguard. 'cause I think we should get properly into it and discuss it. You know, it's already been on TV guys, so you can't complain. So yeah, one of the biggest topics surrounding bodyguard I fail is how realistic is it slash, isn't it? One of the ways, I think because I don't in an office anymore, so I do not have a physical water cooler around which to talk about these things. People Oviously does Twitter, but the way that really tipped me off to the fact that this was being watched and discussed by lots of people was how much SEO content the walls on the internet about it. Every publication in Britain has been doing what all the latest bodyguard conspiracy theories is killing hose, ready dead, bummer, blah. And, and yeah, one of those articles that I've seen over again in. Like tabloids in bro. Cheats is getting real police officers and politicians to righto comment about is this realistic? Like with this? Like the funeral. The answer is obviously, no. Yeah, right. I know it's funny because it's not obviously what we're watching his fiction, and it's meant to be ABS like dramatic and exciting. So often you take liberties and things are bit more absurd, but that was something implausible about bodyguards that I feel like maybe comes from the fact that like the characters on while Ritter malls, it comes from the fast if the plot being absurd because I just went on BBC. Five live to talk about this on. They had Frank Gardner is correspondent, come on the.
