"Ben Bradlee from Channel Nine joins us at this time every day. Hello, and I've been good to be with you. Is to be with you. You know, dibs is in full effect. I don't if you're noticing it was following some of this is the scanner Traffic. Twitter handle CWB Chicago. They follow the stuff that's out there, and they put the stuff That's got a little bit of humor. Uh, dispatch disturbance 5500 Black North Winthrop collars, and that's pronounced north North. North went broke. The neighbor removed the bucket and then proceeded to, uh, toe pick the parking space of thinking. Sergeant says I'm right around the corner. I'll go tell him no dibs, lights and sirens. Here we go. Yes, I didn't see a picture on social media of somebody using an ironing board for Gibbs. I've seen buckets I can use, you know, strikes me if you're visiting overseas, and nobody's visiting right now, But let's say you were Visiting, you know another country and driving around Chicago. We would. Would you start thinking the people iron outside here in Chicago? They shared just hang out or the family dying in the in the parking space and from this is very peculiar is their lawn furniture on the streets? Exactly How that looks to people okay? And we've talked about dibs and you know, I can see it from everybody's perspective. I will say this particular snowfall. If you didn't get out and shovel and remove it within 24 hours or so it's now frozen into like solid blocks of ice. And there's no way to Tomo move a lot of it with just a shovel like you need. You need a backhoe or something to come in and scoop it out. So you know, I'm kind of pro tips in these. Yeah, I was gonna say Get your ironing board. Get your with your get your old projection TV Put wheel it out front. I'm surprised someone who doesn't He does Resale like online doesn't just go scoop all that stuff up. I guess it's so Oh, yeah, not to mention it has been sitting out in the slush and mess for Quite a while, I I did see somebody was going up Elston today and saw somebody whose car was kind of in case like the tires there. Snow was kind of halfway up. It was clearly had moved the car since the weekend Snow. Ended it all frozen, and this person was had a shovel. Shovel appeared to be plastic, and they were just making no progress for your car. A little thing for them. You just want to know. So I kept on driving. Oh, but then you're a busy guy. I see. My dad always said you gotta have the shovel in the trunk during the wintertime. We just need an assault or the cat litter. Over the cat letter that Z. That's the best I can I share with you some really good cove. It numbers that we continue to have, because you know, we've been talking about how rough it's been for nearly a year now, so I was just looking at it some of the numbers and you were there. States reporting 3100 new cases in average for the last seven days or so. I mean 3100 average cases a day compared that to mid November when we were more than 12,000 Day. A knave ridge of 58. People are dying a day of covert. Now we're at 154 people in December. Vaccination. Also going up. Well, Illinois, his leg behind other states today or yesterday. They have 65,000 doses the vaccine out. So the numbers are trending certainly in the right direction here in Illinois, and they have been for a while and the other stunning number I think to think about is 3150 people hospitalized. Across the state with covert right now, 3150. Hurt more than 12,000. People in the hospital in November shows you how far we've come. I mean, that's Ah Gee, I just look, I'm hopeful because now the vaccines are rolling out. You're right. Nothing not going too fast as we like. And the appointments aren't that easy to get? But soon the people who want to get the vaccine will get vaccinated. We know that will happen, and it's the most vulnerable are protected. You know, it's Let's get going. I'm ready to reopen. Yeah. Yeah, I'm too. I mean, did you see in some places you can actually go to a bar that does not serve food and sit inside and get a drink? That's possible. You know? What is that? Like for cut? I'd only actually I've been going to this great spot called my kitchen. Porn a drink? How are the drinks There? They mean they're still here, and the commute home is is great. The commute to bed is great, although I did hear Dr Anthony Fauci on TV saying already. Let's not go crazy Super Bowl Sunday. Let's write, you know. Hack into bars, and there are still some some limits 25% capacity and in the city and suburban cook at restaurants and bars, so hopefully that will, you know, keep down the super spread from Super Bowl weekend. Did you see the CDC recommendations for how to celebrate during the Super Bowl? Oh, gosh. I hope this went better than that. Poor lady in New York state recommending how to safely play tennis. Uh, during during covert. You remember that? Is some poor health director and don't touch anyone else's balls. Oh, did that come out wrong? Yeah. Did the whole thing came out wrong, But this one I don't know how wrong you think it is. Clap. Stomp your feet or bring a handheld noisemaker Do not shout. Do not cheer and do not sing. As you watch the Kansas City Chiefs take on Tampa Bay. You need to clap. Do not pass. Go. Do not collect $200. So if you have any leftover noisemakers from new years or something, take those out. That's what you do. What did you do? And also if you're going to attend any type of gathering, even if it's small, bring your own food, drinks, plates, cups, utensils and condiment packets. That's always a good idea. I never liked. Yeah, you got that You got the kind of a germophobe caramel popcorn you got People licking their fingers and going back for seconds. The dip bowls. I mean, come on, Let's face it if you really sort of scrutinized that, what would you like? What you heard? I don't think you would. I don't think you would. E. I'd like to eat a lot of the beginning of the Super Bowl party because then later it's anybody's guess. Exactly. There's all sorts of. Yeah. The cheese cubes have been sitting out for about four hours. Gigolo when the cheese cubes start to perspire. Don't eat him. Uh, it's the dip. I worry, but I'm sorry. All right, Let's hear about dicks more because it got it. There's ah investigative report you have Yes, Tonight We're looking into South suburban dicks. More Folks down there have been telling us that they have had water problems for more than a year. They involved pressure problems. Sometimes the water pressure's so bad, you know, they turn on their faucets, and it Basically spits water at them, you know, in short bursts. Sometimes there's not enough to do laundry. Todt. Sh is not enough to flush toilet paper. There's not enough water pressure sometimes. And the reason we started looking into this is because Dix more now invented has an underground leak and has had for more than a year. They've called contractors. But then the village, which is cash strapped to begin with, doesn't pay the contractors to try to find the leak. So then the contractors refused to go back. The leak doesn't get fixed. And meanwhile Dicks Moore's water bills, the village buys its water from neighboring Harvey. They've doubled. Because there's this leak underground. And so.

Apple loses top designer Jony Ive
"Apple's chief designer Jonathan I is leaving after more than two decades in which his icon, ick designs for the MAC ipod and iphone turned one of silicon buddies faded giants into the world's most valuable company Janine Gibson discusses is means for apple and what Jonathan will do next with Tim Bradshaw and Matthew galahad. Sarah hunt for those outside the tech world. He might not know the significance of Johnny alive. Who is he? Well, I consider myself outside the tech world. And I mean, he's always a huge figure within the tech world, an even bigger figure out of it because along with Steve Jobs. He's the man responsible for the apple as we know it today, and the suite of products and gadgets and computers developed, which effectively changed the world of consumer electronics changed the world in terms of the way we interact with telephones and gave the world its first smartphone. He is someone with a very clear design aesthetic and without Mary to the drive and the relentless push for excellence. Steve Jobs, embodied, the two were kind of perfect pair. And the apple, we know today was on its knees when the two of them together. So he is a huge huge figure one of the biggest figures in global business. So his departure from apple is a very, very big deal because. Apple design leads the technology anyway, doesn't it? Yeah. Very much say the design studio were Johnny works, and web, Steve Jobs. Spent a lot of his time really comes up with the concepts of new ideas for products, and even anything down through the materials that they use to create those undescribed deep expiration of what's coming next so day than sort of go out and partner with engineering teams. The software teams to turn those into products ready the seeds of those ideas come from quest small, number of people inside a company that employs one hundred thirty thousand across its software retail operation. So it's a very small, but very influential group that Johnny has led full twenty odd years design leads the company, doesn't it? Absolutely. Yeah. Unlike any other apple, I think, doesn't think of itself as a tech company if thinks of itself as a design company that comes to peace tech. So if the aesthetics requires you to invent new material, you will go off and invent new. Yeah. If you come out with a phone turns out space slightly bendy than you had expected the next phone comes out with a slutty strengthened aluminium. So it doesn't bend, for example. So why is he leaving? Now, then, Johnny says when we spoke to him this week that he's leaving now because he feels like he's completed a certain number of big projects that have been trained for quite some time in terms of Apple's internal projects. That means the move to apple park, its new headquarters that he designed along with jobs in Norman foster and also that comes with it a sort of a new setup full that design studio, which has brought together, not just industrial design, which is perhaps what we think of Johnny. And Appleford Demery the sort of the physical hardware, it self, but bringing in interaction designers, font, designers people think about different ways in which we touch tap fail. Whatever comes out of the software, and the jets themselves, and that's been working progress. Full a very long time. It's a multibillion dollar projects. I think Johnny said the in Steve Jobs. I talked about it in two thousand four as they were walking through high park in London. I think there is also a secondary question around what motivates, Johnny himself, and why he feels like this. Moment where he wants to branch out and do things he's not going to be quizzing, working with apple together. He won't be an employee anymore, but they will retain his offices to advise on design and strategy and product innovations. But he will no longer be restricted to just doing technology. Now, he's not saying an awful lot about what else he is going to do with this new venture that he starting, but one can imagine that, that might run from anything from peaceful expensive pieces of jewelry or furniture to something completely different. He's bringing with him Newson, who's another apple designer in a longtime collaborator of Janis who worked on plain interiors and cars and watches. So the resources inside apple almost unlimited, but the canvas is somewhat constrained. And so maybe he just feels after twenty five years, he wants to do something different. Do you think that the nature of the company's changing Matt, that it's something that has been so aesthetic lead and design lead, and that you can move the world in order to achieve your vision, but apple is necessarily becoming more about services and expensive video streaming? Software perations than hardware, certainly. I think that's a big part of it. I mean, the smartphone market is maturing new competitors in China and undercutting the sorts of things. Apple does. It's still by far and away the biggest part of its business, but it's not growing as quickly as it used to in the big pot. With more. Potential is services, as you say, in video and music and other things. How much influence can one person is used to sculpting, beautiful objects have on a sort of the'real, intangible business light services? Yeah. I think that's right. I mean, the apple line has always been that actually what makes the iphone specialists, not just the hardware combination of hardware, and software and services. And although Johnny started as an industrial designer he did take over software GT's as well. And he has a guy I think he was seven he sort of strip that back made it much minimalist lot flatter. Got rid of some of the faux leather, textures and sort of ring binder stuff that you had in the original I find as it came out. And so he's proved that he can't do software as well. But I guess we haven't seen from apple a right through. In things like Siri and virtual assistance and artificial intelligence. And although some of that is roar engineering and technology and not scenario where Google has lost more data that can pull on apple does, it is also a question of how humans interact with technology and the way Siri works just isn't as good as Alexa, or Google assistant. Do you think any of this is down two pups getting a little booed? I mean being the same place for such a long time, having such influence sees the company, moving in a slightly different direction. And it's now time to think about things a living technology. I think twelve plus years of iphones. A ni- becoming evermore. It's relative. I do think the must be sort of sense of you. Here we go again. They obviously look a long way ahead many years, aheads. And so he will know that the car the small classes, and whatever is coming in health next that we expect all brewing in those labs. He'll be involved in those and we'll continue to be, I think, but the must be something that you just want to try something completely different. And when I spoke to him he. Talked a little bit about wanting sort of try and find that space and clear at to think of new ideas and get different kinds of crisis stimulating, he talks a lot about the creative process, rather than just the products that come out at the end of them. And I did get a sense that maybe just felt like he was on a bit of a treadmill and never really got the kind of free space to roam, and he won't. He's coming along way from his humble beginnings, and fully embrace the Californian lifestyle very much site. Boy, from ching food is, yeah, we're done good. Yeah. I'm might be overrun meant citing. This is a frequent problem. But I have this very Ben bradlee Katharine Graham view of Steve Jobs, and Johnny. I building this company together with the creative, tension partnership. It's going on. Yeah. Yep. This a whole soundtrack, and that somehow, you know, won't Steve Jobs wins the company's inevitably drifted onto Tim to be bit more corporate, and most structurally lead in poor Janis. Aesthetic vision has been forced out. I think this must be something to that, for sure. Say that just soon delivered or no? I mean it was opponent ship. I think they would both Joe's still here. He would say, I mean, they were collaborators the like of which is not been seen, and they had lunch together every day jobs was constantly in the design studio. I asked him cook, you know, how often he goes, and he says. Well, I'm I'm very busy. I goes offense like hand every it doesn't sound like the having lunch together. And so, I think that's on the other hand, you know, the apple watch and the airports, and the sort of whole push into wearable, technology, was definitely a post jobs endeavor that process began in two thousand twelve and so, although the watch got a very lukewarm reception. When it started it has become a bit business. I think the uphold similarly people like why does that little dribble of toothpaste, look like sticking out of my, but now they've sort of almost become their own viral phenomenon and that's not just him. That's the whole team of people that work in design. They've proven that they can do something beyond. Now, I guess what we haven't seen, and frankly, may never see from apple is something as big as the iphone, I guess. That sort of thing that hangs over, and I again, also Johnny about that. And he said, well, I didn't show success by numbers. It's more about the ideas and the satisfaction and the little invisible things that we do that people not licensed. Their lives are being made better. That's fine. That would have appealed, Steve Jobs and possibly note. That have from I haven't, I mean, you've referred to the initial skepticism move up at ports when the MAC book, the latest book in the keyboards that don't work nasal. Hooky. Stand the thousand. Well, I didn't I mean Johnny might sleep that is the pinnacle of his achievements. The monitor stemmed pros what he's spending his time doing. Yeah, I think I think the bigger question behind all of this is who makes decisions about which apple products come out and see the light of day and rightly or wrongly that was always singularly associated with jobs. He was the one he said million dollars and a few yeses, and I think Johnny has sort of taken on that role. But maybe not how that sounding board, the he had when jobs was alive. And I think Tim cook is a fantastic operator. He's a fantastic diplomats, which is a very important role for apple at the moment. But yeah, you don't get that sense that he's energized by the spark of an idea. And how do we nurture this? He wants to know when it comes out the other side, how to make it in huge volumes and how to make a big success. But who after Johnny his left full-time apple is actually making that decision is not clear. And they say it's many people that I knew were talking about designed by committee. Which put on the spot come they flourish without him. Well without him is this open question? I mean he's starting this new venture called love from or one word. It has been in California alone, time has has done so love from we'll have apple as its first client, and he says that he wants to be sort of very closely involved for very, many years. But up until now Apple's had him ultimate cells. And so I think that there are other questions around whether upward flourish, which I think, in the short-term, have much more to with the China US trade war, and how many people in China's still wants by phones. Whether China will still be where I finds a maid or whether they have to move production out wholesale which is very complicated and expensive. And so the iphone franchise will continue with or without Johnny. I think, and it's hard to sort of say how closely involved, he's been in the phone, but he is a call not. He's a judge at the Goodwood festival of speed he likes 'cause he wanted to buy McLaren for awhile. Yes. That was a scoop. He was. Was enough teeth story. So yeah, but you kind of wonder what that I mean that definitely spending lots of money exploring Wilson autonomous vehicle can do and how it will work. But what does that actually look like? And whether Johnny has the right person to design, not as a fan of traditional calls or whether you need someone with a completely blank slate. I mean, they're all those argue that actually this is the right moment to really shake up monument, apple more, generally, we see Angela errands, leave the head of retail. They've Bruce in a very senior artificial intelligence engineer from Google to oversee machine learning where they have been weak. And you know, maybe this will create a new kind of air film. They certainly have the resources that disposal to kind of feel holds write them off. Big question for apple so Jonathan's off to become a yacht interior designer whatever he's going off today. But in the big ranking of Google Facebook, Amazon Apple who's now on top. Does this make any difference fathom? Well Microsoft right now is the world's most valuable company in the only one of the big Silicon Valley companies that is worth more than a trillion. Never talk about, Microsoft his quite has quite boring. I mean. I mean I find Amazon is such juggernaut right now and seems to have that carefree spirit of innovation and experimentation, which has been quite the opposite of how apple has worked where you sort of very deliberately and secretly come up with something. And then launch it into the world as technology expands into every for lives. I feel like Amazon is perhaps, the most dynamic of that group that doesn't currently at least have the privacy baggage, a Facebook or Google might have all the sort of legacy problems of. We've we still have iphone sales that make up two-thirds of our revenues. And how do we ever get out from under that? Do you think that's right? Yeah. I think I'm clearly motiva- are ascendant. And they have been in the ascendancy for some time and apple has its own struggles

"Here. So there's a pool report. And of course media, which is becoming increasingly unreadable. So I'll think I'll stop linking to them. It's just too radical left. It's like ten to one you go into that site. It's Trump that this an incident Hannity did this and who gives a crap. And the pool reporter. I believe he works for either the Washington Post. The New York Times says that he saw Hannity had special access on the Trump border tour and huddled with fficials like Bill shine and others. And this is a big deal. You see? Now, what they don't tell you is Ben bradlee who was a bigwig with the Washington compost used to huddle with JFK all the time more than that. Used to party with them used to cover up form. Our Martha Raddatz remember her then she Mr. producer have the Obamas at her wedding. If I recall she did. So she was huddling with them and dancing with them and partying with. I mean, there's a million examples of this and Hannity is not a newsman. He's a commentator. Thank goodness for his reputation. So it is truly bizarre. Truly bizarre. And yet, they're they. I'll post this right now be the last link I do to these people. Here's their article just say, no, Sean Hannity is tagging along and president Donald Trump's tour the border, Texas Thursday. This is media. This is an advance of their interviews set the air on Fox News, Thursday evening and per one account of the trip. Hannity has ditched the press corps and his spending time with administration officials. Current White House pool report written by Philip Rucker, the Washington compost, the Fox News host has been separated from the rest of the media is getting some face time with the key staff. So what? It's kind of like you guys dealing with Nancy baloney. Schmucky Schumer, Sean Hannity special access here. The report said he huddled with the White House communications director Bill shine who was originally his producer, by the way and department of homeland security secretary Kirsten Nielsen and his following along on Trump's tour only standing with the staff and federal officials as opposed to the press corps. He's not in the press corps you morons. Thursday, schedule conversation between Hannity and Trump is the latest meeting of the two during a presidential trip. Hannity also spoke with the president following his talks, ladder, Putin and so forth. What they're trying to do is get these executives at FOX all worked up about. Honey, it's not gonna work. There's nothing inappropriate here. Nothing whatsoever. I mean, you have individuals on all these cable channels bar. None who so hate Trump. Maybe they're the ones that need to get slapped down by management. Maybe they're the ones who need to be lectured by management. All.

"Is there something else going on based on your reporting that that might explain why Pennsylvania's politics might be flipping back toward blue. Well, I noticed that Lou down in the polls Trump's going back there next week to be. And. He, he's the congressman for wizards county. The county I focused on, he's not as well known in the western part of the state. So I think they wanna they're hoping that Trump will showcase him more out there. You know, when you talk to to Mike people who are still with with our Letta, say the easy comeback is, well, the polls were on to, you know, but I don't know that it's a sign of that Trump is peaked or that there's a Rosen. I think it may be more focused on bar lettuce, pros and cons. When you look toward twenty twenty with President Trump presume running for reelection. Most of it's hard to imagine a primary challenge of being successful given the the personality that he is that he is exhibited and the the way he's taken over the Republican party. There's no distance between him and the report. Parties. What are the broader lessons the UC for politicians in terms of how he was able to be successful, what he was able to do to to bring out a coalition that really hadn't been visible even in previous election cycles, it's still stunning that he won. Yes, two years later. You know, Trump Trump behaves as president of his base rather than president of the country. He's a divider is not a unifier, and I just wonder if there's not political hay to be made for Democrats in putting up a candidate who would essentially run on unification platform, you know, that would take a wouldn't be Elizabeth Warren or Bernie. Sanders might be Biden, I guess, and but we're so polarized and. You know, Trump in his in his acceptance. Speech on election night said that he was going to try to unite the country, but he never has. And he goes out to these political rallies in his favourite states and continues to behave as a as the president of the base. So I to me the the, the stark polarization of the country. It was divided before from, yes, but he's, I think, increase the divide. And I just wonder whether there's not. It's become a leadership issue who can really lead lead the country into healing its wounds and is the view among the the folks that you talked to for this book that it's okay that he's only talking to his base that the other folks aren't listening anyway that they're out to get him or did they find any fault in the fact that he does not unite as the president also them don't. They don't. They don't blame them. They say that the other side is is just as responsible for the divisions as as Trump is, and they hate him. There's nothing you can do anyway. But I, to me, it looks like a looks like a leadership issue. The might be potential for a democrat who start at the talk that way. I don't know. I think that the question you raise I get asked all the time what happens next? And I think that the we'll net we're not gonna know for some time, whether Trump was one off of this. Just a pure of this personality or if there's a way to to move that ahead..

"What is your sense on what it took for a lot of the voters, Utah to to go from supporting a candidate to then believing everything. Literally everything that he says. I think one of the key things that will have to look for going forward is whether Trump has really started a movement here or whether his support is rooted more in a cult of personality, and I think it might be the ladder could be wrong, but. People can disagree with him on any manner of issues, and they just like him. They like how he gets up every day, and you know, starts kicking ass with his tweets and raising hell and insulting his enemies and sticking it to the press. They love that. And I think in that sense, culture bests economics even, you know, because Trump even though it's a good economy there in some ways he hasn't delivered for the working class. You know, he said he was going to curb the deficit in the in the campaign, but it budget add seven trillion dollars to the deficit. He said he was going to hold the line on Medicare and Medicaid, but there are deep cuts there and, but so. When one would one could say that those that doesn't translate into the vested interests of his supporters, but it doesn't matter. They just love. Specific to the characters that you focused on and you follow it up with a number of them more recently checking in. Two questions to any of them, questioning their support for President Trump and has the Trump presidency, been good for them in a in a broader sense. Other than just winning has been good for their lives. Well of the twelve people that I focus on in the book at this hour eleven or say that if the election would be held tomorrow, they would vote for him enthusiastically. Only one has slipped into the undecided category. So I think one key. Braman are going forward is what is their ceiling on Trump's base or not. And. But as I said, he mostly can do no wrong for them and and has has the Trump presidency delivered on the promise of jobs coming back of fighting for workers. He talked about the need to change trade deals to benefit them to reach, wait to raise wages. These trumpeting the economic gains the Dow all the time, but is that, is that relevant for most of these people? I don't know how many of them have or heavy into the stock market. I don't think that many. Yeah. But you know, they, they. Trumpet as it were. Some of his policies, the economy's is going gangbusters, inherited a good economy, but they don't wanna get into that debate how much credit Obama deserves. And you know they like the tax cut, even though I'm not sure how much of it actually shows up in their in their paychecks and they liked it. He's cut back on red tape and regulations. I think the the trade is a bit of a double edged sword. They liked him. They like the America first doctrine, and but I'm not sure they like the prospect of trade wars. I wanna ask about Pennsylvania more all because it is actually ground zero for the democratic hopes of taking back picking congress. There are a number of districts in Pennsylvania. Where Democrats they can win. I think mostly in the Philadelphia area Pittsburgh areas. Well, had it pretty famous special election a couple of months ago livered for the Democrats and the congressman that you talked to at some length in this book Lou lead has now that the Republican nominee for Senate, it looks like he's gonna get blown out by Bob. Casey, he's, he's really not in the mix. The president encouraged him to run really wanted him in that race was encouraging and feeling like if if Valetta windy definitely wins, it doesn't look like that's happening. Is that a sign of a of a broader backlash backlashes that the resistance in action or is there?.

"Recline and our guest today is Ben Bradley, junior, the author of brand new book, the forgotten how the people of one Pennsylvania county elected Donald Trump and changed America Ben, my former colleague at the Boston Globe, congratulations on the book and welcome. Thanks records. So I want to start with how you shows is county. Pennsylvania was a critical safer, President Trump. He ended up winning the state by forty, four thousand votes, and you chose a particular county Luzern county. Tell us a little bit about why you decided to focus your reporting on this corner. Lavinia where I've been like many most journalists, I guess, fascinated by the emergence of Trump and this unusual totally different candidate who not only won the Republican nomination, but got elected president. And I was looking for different way to write about the Trump phenomenon and examined more closely. The three rust belt states, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin where the election was decided, and you know that was only seventy seven thousand odd votes that from won those states by total. And if Hillary had won them, she would have been the present. So looking at Pennsylvania seemed to be the most important to me because it had I, it has most electoral votes twenty and Hillary considered it. Absolutely. Her firewall, you know she'd been raised in Scranton. And which is just over the county line and family there Biden was from there. And looking at that vote, I discovered this county zone, which is where wilkes-barre is. And this was a traditionally democratic county that had gone for hadn't voted Republican presidents since eight Bush senior and Obama had carried it twice. But it surged in the other direction for Trump and he wanted by twenty points by twenty six thousand odd votes which was sixty percent of the forty four thousand vote total that you mentioned. So sixty percent of his victory margin came from this one county. So without this county, he wouldn't one Pennsylvania, perhaps the presidency to the extent that Michigan Wisconsin's demographics or similar. So I just went down there right after the election, less than a month, I think, and began nosing. Around with a view to seeing if this could be a prism through which to examine that Trump vote. I my my, my basic premise was that I think more than half the country remains shocked that Trump got elected president and that there's a hunger to know more about about the Trump voter. So it strikes me, you identify twelve different characters, use the tell these stories, and it's a, it's a diverse mix. As you know, a veteran lawyer all the way through and nurse and even white white nationalist white supremacist in there, a congressman as well. It struck me one through line was here from these people. They felt like their voice wasn't heard before..

"It to beliefs it did get good reviews and passports have attic advocate for the film's tell me where i've air what did i miss with that man and the wasp will coming off a black panther and the avengers earlier this year with infinity ward how heavy a lot of those films are with social commentary and just the breadth of what they've become in this marvel cinematic universe ant man is really just a good summer film it's just something to go in watch there's very low stakes overall especially within the mc you you could just go in laugh enjoy yourself paul rudd's charismatic as hell so it's just enjoyable to watch him just bounce off every other character in the room and do his thing and you have a real you have a really kind of silly antagonist and walton goggin 's as we know from i believe he was on a couple of tv shows on fx he's done very well as a character actor but overall they're setting up again something much bigger for infinity war part two coming out next year so there's there's a bigger play in the works right now from what you're saying feel it small stakes small potatoes compared to what they've been doing what there is out there however the bringing in these high end alisters michelle pfeiffer like spoiler alert i'll give you time just to kind of press the fast forward real quick she's only in the movie for maybe twenty minutes and not enough shell five however i have a feeling we're going to see a lot more of her infinity war part too i feel that's going to be like this three hour epic just like infinity war part one whereas very well paced for being two and a half hours that at the end of it like everything is gonna pay off i have complete faith in what marvel has been doing the last decade that they have a plan for everything and even their misteps have been very slight so right now you consider this mediocre marvel marvel film but put this up against ironman ten years ago this might be one of the best movies of the summer and you'd be raving about it but because you know what the scheme of marvel is right now it looks like it just kind of mediocre and miniscule yeah well that's i will agree with you that it is breezy entertainment i mean it is not heavy as you mentioned those other films there's no social agenda here they're not trying to make a grander statement it is supposed to be just a fun summer movie and for me it was as much fun as i would have thought but it's fine it pass the time we'll give it to me believe hereditary is the one i was really excited to see so eighty nine percent rotten tomatoes it's a horror movie which i'm not a fan of john ra but we're sitting here fellas midjuly in the best mood this year's a horror movie it's a quiet place by john christine sqi which is now veiled on dvd i encourage all to go check it out it's a terrific film already reviewed it on the pod but in case you're listening for the first time it's emotionally resonant it has all the requisite chills and thrills and it's really a sure debut by credential i think is going to be a filmmaker of some prominence along with being a comedic actor from what we've seen in the office but hereditary okay raver us really scary at my buddy mike benzon as the best he told me he had to read some spoilers beforehand he left the theatre knowing when those scenes with come because you couldn't take it so i said wait you read up to find out what happens the movies a cat because i'm going to be too petrified and then you left the feeder because you can take us down i said all right i scaredy cat per se but i don't think i'm the strongest man in the world so maybe i should buckle up for this so i can't wait to go see hereditary because the reviews toni collette could cast gabriel byrne's the movie as well first half an hour it's just lurching along and i was starving and you guys know i'm loath to leave the cinema but i gotta go get something somebody so run it get some chicken fingers and i asked the guy chicken tenders and i asked the guy go listen to be.

"It is airing monday july twenty third this coming monday nine o'clock eastern on pbs i'm not a red sox fan i'm obviously an enormous baseball fan and ted williams on about you danny but he's one of my favorite figures because he's a fascinating guy he only cared about hitting as you'll hear in the ben bradlee all athletes to be incredibly driven and hardworking you can't get there without that type of drive and talent but ted williams was obsessive with a capital o and capitalized i tell us is all he cared about was hitting didn't care about defense but some bad red sox teams and a good correlation that nick davis made documentary and he's like joey votto from today a weird guy he's just kind of off a little bit but he's a tremendous hitter and that's all he cares about it's only focuses on pitches two inches outside i'm not gonna swing i'm going to protect the zone and that's the way it is and and ted's life the bob costas said he was john wayne he was a real life john wayne nobody could fly fighter pilot better than ted in the war loss five years the war who could have imagined how much better statistics would have been love fly fishing the best in the world at that ease in to fishing hall of fame in the world and one of the greatest hitters who ever lived you may know the story and i don't know the particulars i just know on the last day of the season when he hit four hundred i believe there was a double header yeah right and so he got a hit and he was over five hundred or over four hundred and they're like we'll take you out and he said no and he went on then when five eight that day or something he was sitting three nine nine five going into the foul double header and they said you can sit it out and we'll just run it up it'll be four hundred and he said no way he went six eight four six i mean like as cost us says you're like that's a man's man kind of move curtis check out the dock mitch even if you're not a baseball fan you know american masters terrific stuff on pbs our long really fascinating and of course when you mentioned ted williams if you're twenty five and under all you wonder about his head in the fact is cryogenically frozen which the document you does touch on what a bizarre and fantastical tale that is hopefully there's an obscure at allegedy was but ben bradlee and nick davis are coming up momentarily let's do a few reviews and repack is gonna engage me here on ant man and the wasp which i found to be one of these elephant time bloated cgi moral features i think this has been while the worst summers in recent memory when it comes to big budget features the only one that really stands out for me is dead two for the record i enjoyed the first eight man i thought it was clever much in the way that deadpool was sa verting the superheroes genre i like the fan that rather than bigger is better and faster is stronger man is smaller and the fact you have a diminutive superhero and of course the film is going to use the likeability and easy guy charm paul rudd but i thought in the movie is a sequel there wasn't anything particularly fresh evangeline lilly we'll ever kasese canadian but i thought her role was fine michael pain has a few lines of being a comedic foil but i thought the plot was all over the place if repetitive to me did never strong villain and honestly my primary thought was like what's going through the minds of michael douglas michelle pfeiffer lords fishburn these are three really talented actors oscar nominees are like this is what it's come to we're an ant man on the wasp but i don't wanna say they're just picking up a check but it just feels like what is going on with today's cinema this is where they are i thought it was small scale by marvel standards the action scenes were fine but honesty nothing that's out for me i'm only giving.
