"Work raise pellegrini's henchman is taken us on sun role right from the train. The thing about that kind of cliffhanger though is that it just happens rightly i was comparing the reichenbach fall earlier right and the the sort of tension isn't just about. Oh there's urgency right it's also about the fact that everything about the conundrum in that episode has been set up right so as much as sherlock trying to figure out how to get out of a situation rate. It's like as tyler perry situation as much as you know it's like you. The viewer are trying to figure it out right. I don't think that there's anything to figure out about rowell's kidnapping right. They kind of present it like. It is when they have all the hats on the beach. Right it's sort of visually presented like you're being presented with some sort of riddle but there is no riddle right and i think it's kind of like it's it's just he's gone now. The person you think kidnapped the son kidnapped the son bats app and and we had honestly like within five minutes. We know where he is. Where he's going as it's not biz etan by the allison. You could just go ahead and say by episode. We know where his son is at. The situation is nearly resolve. Yeah And i think that's the thing right so like in the the first part of part to you basically have assan Doing this cat and mouse. Game right with pellegrini's henchmen trying to get his son back trying to figure out how he's ultimately going to strike like revenge against the guy who framed dead rate for stealing a diamond necklace injury shallowness right but like that's the thing right. It's a it's a cat and mouse game. And i think it works on that level right. I think it works because it's like the first part is trying to find his son the second part. I'm trying to figure out when it transitions from. He's trying to find his son. I at that mansion than at the hotel. Where and then well he gets his like he gets his son back and then right when but i mean like meanwhile claire has made her own deal with pelagreeny to get her son back. And then we're just kind of like. Oh you know. She wasn't really cheese. She wasn't really gang and then he loving she then he is just like i'm gonna go strike up this thing juliet and you are. I guess like as the viewer supposed to have some sort of trepidation about his true intentions about lake. Does he actually only see clair's the mother of his child is he actually having rekindling these feelings for juliet or is it you know is something else afoot which i mean like something else is always a but the year and you know what maybe i will just comparing everything sherlock for this episode rate Shall i does similar things right because the whole pot. Like the whole deal. The whole stick of benedict cumberbatch. Sherlock is that he's neurotic. He's off pudding he's antisocial. And so much of the tension of that show becomes in these high stakes moment where somebody's getting kidnapped or killed right. you know. The question is always translate himself to the that he needs help from in order to like solve. This problem right but also can he prioritize saving someone right over just sort of winning the argument with the villain right is he gonna set of let himself potentially lose a step to the villain in order to do the humane thing and save one of his friends. This guy right. And i it's it's sort of. I would say that you mean like the the annoying thing about Like lupan is the fact that has vanity is like never actually wielded against any sort of way or never becomes a thing right. It's the thing it's almost. It's always sort of gesturing at that right. Like is he gonna do the right thing. But it's so much lower stakes. And i think it's because the nature of the character right like the difference between i don't i don't know i don't know the lupine i don't know the maurice leblanc source material while enough. I just know this characterization. So much of what is good about performance rate is that he he just kinda slick right. He's slippery. He despite how conspicuous he is in every scene. He's also this slippery guy even when he's wearing the worst disguises you've ever seen he's just like i'm going to make this work with that. So that's like the opposite of of cumberbatch. Sherlock sherlock is so over the top in his antisocial behavior. And that's what lets him sell. The those moments of you know beat the villain or save. Save your friend right. Whereas because omar is so low key. It's really hard for him to simultaneously. Sal the idea of making hard decisions or being confronted in. Hey it's also like a like a like a function of his character. Just being good at everything from costumes designed to voice modulation to music production and sound. Just like he just keeps pulling new and cool shit out. You know like there's there's always a sense that he could have it all have to choose like so there can't dead. There necessarily can't be that tension that you're talking about right and it's it's a little frustrating because the ingredients for something more complicated. They're but it's almost like the show really never wants to challenge how smoothie is like raw role is such a good example of rate where it feels like this show is constantly gesturing at the idea. That y- us absentee yeah. I think that it's kind of i think most pointedly visually represented when in the sand off In the band mansion between Asada 's and pellagra henchmen right like because key is again like six three six four. I feel like you were routinely overstating his height. I was on the last last program but the thing is among actors. He is tall. Okay and this other guys not that tall or big tall. Many had him right size the mansion. Yes just like this this this just like you know at the end of it. He just grabs by the colorado. Hoist pitches him out of the let. Yes yes So what are you focused on in that though there. There's it's kind of like like super bay can't actually be under pressure like there's it's really like there can't be the kind of tension that you're talking about because like the the the most that we can do is get his his factory jays dirty. Yeah yeah yeah. I think of it more with Especially because again. The cliffhanger focuses on raw being kidnapped and then get to spend more time with us on and role.

"So I don't really feel like I can judge this. But I'm gonna anyway, this is the Colleen and Bradley say you're not. We're not celebrities either, but we judge them all day long. My talk one of 71 streaming live at my talk one of 71 dot com. Everything entertainment? I'm Colleen Lindstrom. That's Bradley trainer. So you know who Martin Freeman is right? He's like photo from the Hobbit or something course. What route? You just said that is the like. That was like a throwaway thing, And he's also many other things. He's an actor. Did he really play photo he played? I always get photo and Bilbo Played photo. Yeah. Hey, Billy Bilbo, Right, Bilbo. But photo Anyway, He's a guy. He's an actor, and he's in my successful actor. He also played Watson. Yeah, that's the one that I think a lot of people would remember him. Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock. Correct because no cause proto is what's his name? That's Elijah Wood? Yeah, right. So he's Bill Bob? Yeah. Well, Ah Young Bilbo in Hobbit. Martin Freeman is he was on the off menu podcast, and he was talking about Jim Carey and his method acting On the set of the movie man on the moon. Now, do you remember it? I don't know if you remember that time of life, but it was in the late nineties. When they filmed man on the moon, which is the story of Andy Kaufman, the very famous Comedic actor. Who was a little off the wall and Jim Carey played played the role in his in the bio pic. And he decided to go completely method. And Martin Freeman basically was like it was B to the eth the whole experience. It was as bad if not worse than what you imagine because Jim Carrey and we all heard Rumors about this. He wouldn't even respond to his own name He would on Lee respond to the name Andy Kaufman on the set. He, um well, the here I'll use Martin Freeman's words, he said. For me, and I'm genuinely sure Jim carries a lovely and smart person. But it was the most self a grand izing selfish, bleeping north US narcissistic. Uh, can we say the word that they say I'm said B word? It's a British B word there on the side of Connor. I'm gonna write that small. Look there you go I've ever seen, he said the idea anything in our culture would celebrate that or support it. Is deranged, literally deranged. Um, and he based basically what he's saying is like it was a waste. It was. It was a selfish, self centered of noxious display. The way he went completely method and he was a capital J jerk on the set. Of man in the moon. Remember when that was going on thinking. The way people talked about it was like this was like a stroke of brilliance on Jim Carrey's behalf. And I remember thinking I don't think that Works. Myself. Well, I just don't I mean again. I'm not an actor, but I'm gonna judge it. What we do. I just I feel like that is like the thing that you should be. Focusing your energy and attention on as an actor is the role you're playing when you're playing the role, and what makes an actor an actor is that they are acting, not Trying to transform themselves. Like when the lights go off. When the yell cut You should go back to living your own life. Yeah, like I honestly, I don't disagree with any of that. And I think that that particular behavior is more than just this is a thing that I think the world is not doesn't allow this behavior as much as we used to, in the sense that I think a lot of I don't This is not a conversation about method acting because I honestly don't know what that means, other than like, sort of, you know, just the like, stereotype that we have of it like I'm just gonna be in character all the time. Maybe it's a simple is that there's probably a philosophy and a great history and a total purpose. And you know, scholars and students of will appreciate and be able to practice in their own space. Thank you, but in terms of this particular story about this particular actor in this particular movie and the things that Martin Freeman was saying, this seems like it's just ego allowed to run unfettered, which is something that was allowed in Hollywood up until very recently. Where in If you were a successful actor, if you were the top bill if you were the one who was allegedly driving ticket sales, right as the perception of you know, the people funding everything in Hollywood dictated like you were just allowed to be kind of a jerk, you know, were disrespectful of other people's space. And, um, work and just like in general, you were allowed to sort of like run amok because you were Jim Carrey, right? It's like, I don't think Any other person on that film who chose T O be their character. In a method way would be allowed to do that. And and he basically said as much, not necessarily about other people on that set. But he said Martin Freeman said of Jim Carey and his method acting in the movie man on the moon. He said. Can you imagine if he had been anybody else? He would have been sectioned, let alone fired, He would have been gotten rid of its the ridiculously way given to some people. In other words, because he was Jim Carrey because he was the name that was attached to the top. It's exactly what you were saying he was allowed to be. Jerk and in some ways kind of abusive to the people around him about all the other men who I pick on men, particularly because I think that's probably the predominance of the examples. You've exhibited that baby. Yeah, And that had an excuse to stand behind. And that's in his case. Exactly What Martin Freeman is saying is like he shouldn't get a free pass for that. You know what? It also made me think of this is just go with me. You made me think of the fact that rebel Wilson very recently made it sound like she was going to go all method, and that's why she was leaving social media to remember that which again so sometimes I think people hide behind this. You're right. It probably well, it definitely is a real technique. It's a real acting technique that real actors have employed and it has probably probably has very definitive boundaries, right? Right. Like I don't think it gives you carte blanche to be a complete Uh huh. People. It just is a way to keep you in character s o that you are fully immersed in the experience of the character that you're trying to portray. But I don't think I don't think that a person who is you know Embodying a method. Acting role. Just gets a go on. Unchecked. Yeah, I think it's also a power move again. I think this is very typical of behavior of probably mostly men at a very specific, you know, socioeconomic status, and this is acting. But I imagine it crosses like industries wherein I'm of a certain accomplishment level like I've achieved a certain level, so I'm allowed to behave in such a way that no one else is because I have achieved a certain level of success. And my disrespect of my fellow humans is actually my talent right like it's so I mean, I may be reading too much into it, but I do think this sounds very familiar to like. Think of Think of who are we just talking about who was basically like held to account for the first time ever in his career. The director producer Scott Rudin. Yeah, like, think about all the behavior that people just looked the other way at because they were like, Well, it's Scott Ruden. Yeah. I mean, Harvey Weinstein, Right that you get you get a free pass because of the space you occupy in Hollywood, and I, it is it is, It is a fully ego. Centric behavior. Also, I would like to be the bit role person who shows up on set to be like waitress number four who goes Method on that doesn't happen. And I take your order. No. Yeah, I want to take your order, but you're not a waitress..

"Colleen Lindstrom Bradley trainer team okay so last night we were doing that thing on the couch where you're like okay stop where you're like what are we gonna watch what you watch we've got like some stuff they were watching but sometimes you want a little variety right like I was like I want something new especially now right so I said to my husband he said we were I said why don't you go over to Amazon prime because we haven't looked over there Terry see what people are listening to the calling the brother Sean my talk on a seven yeah I think so that that's who we are anyway so I said to my husband let's go over to Amazon prime because we forget to look there when we're looking for stuff on television yeah and I said I know that they've got good shows because I used to watch fleabag on Amazon prime because all that reminds me I haven't watched the second season yet and I said oh my goodness that reminds me that there's something else you can do with fleabag so if you are a person who loved the show fleabag and this is the brain child of Phoebe Waller bridge shivered they won a golden globe for that I all right yeah like a lot of them yes she this this show is brilliant and I will just say it's he you might there it is there what well I'm trying to say that it's like nobody it's a no yeah there's definitely not a moment yes so so you know don't be surprised if you're like everybody says this fleabag shows good and then you get to it and there's like some aggressive sex scenes and there's no Daryl Hannah C. GI if there were any items anyway show anywhere but but the show the TV show is based on a stage a one woman show a stage show that Phoebe Waller bridge said I heard about that before but of course I've never had an opportunity to see the stage show yeah until now we all can see it because they made a recording of her flea bag one woman show available to stream on Amazon you for about two weeks and this it will it dropped on the tenth so you really only have just over a week to watch it on Amazon so when you say one woman shows it literally like her onstage as her on stage okay it is it is Phoebe Waller bridge and a stool on the stage how like a chair yes thank you press he's sitting on a chair in the middle of the stage and it's fascinating for a number of reasons okay so first of all you if you've seen the show you will recognize the story lines of this one woman show it's just about an hour and a half long here and but you will see the way that she is she's such a great storyteller so the way she tells the story as one person you will see where storylines got teased out in the season you will you will notice things that got left out entirely but it will give you and this is why I loved it and I was really glad I got to watch it it will give you a deeper appreciation for what that character means and what what the underlying sort of theme was of that two season show now I have a question I have an answer do you have to have watched the one with the thing in the I would say no how do they do this all okay yeah you just do it it's five dollars and at least for the first twenty four hours those five dollars were donation to the and national emergencies trust NHS charities together in acting for others so but they will continue also to to raise some money to help actors who are out of work right now theater workers who are out of work because of the pandemic but so it's five dollars can you just go to Amazon prime you can download and watch it awesome you will get it for forty eight hours you don't have to watch it all once but like I said it's like an hour and a half it's a silly not watch it once but you don't have to watch the series in fact actually I wonder what that experience would be like so why should without having watched the series because that's where it was all born it seems like it might actually be a good idea to watch that first and then go watch the series yeah yeah I mean I think either way you'd appreciate it so like you're not ruined if you've already watched this it's good to know yeah but it really I just she is soul brilliance the world as a storyteller she's brilliant that entire show was like a deeply meaningful in a very dark way and you see the seeds of it in the stage show I was and I'm also a person who when I hear something as a one person show I my immediate reaction is I'm gonna be bored yeah not if the person is a good I mean I I really marvelous people who can do that well because it's not an easy thing to do it's a separate art form as far as I'm concerned like being able to because you're not just like sitting up there reading stuff for your not just acting a part you're you're you have to be in control of everything yeah you have to be able to keep the story moving just in the body of one human and she really is such a gifted storyteller and her physical humor is such that you she's got a really wonderful timing like they're so seen in this one woman show Phoebe Waller bridge doing the one woman show fleabag which the entire series was based on there is a scene where she takes ninety pictures for a boyfriend okay right and she's fully closed as she acts all of this out and that is funny in and of itself right so she's like literally wearing pants white end up being yes No thank you does it feel like she's delivering on along its feet it feels yes no not like a comedy monologue okay it feels like a person who's telling a story with some physical and there's like it's interspersed with other voices but they don't play large roles they just help advance the story forward interesting a little bit there's some sound effects and some different lighting that will help move the story along but there's this part of the the story in you to remember it from the actual TV show where she's taking naughty pictures for a boyfriend and then she does this moment where she's scrolling and she doesn't even have an actual phone in her hand right so she's like my aiming this whole thing yeah and she puts her hand up like she's looking at the phone and the scrolling the cheese scrolling through and reacting to these fake pictures that are not in her hand or on her imaginary phone right it's all acting but the way that she will hold it an awkwardly long time like just even that choice is so funny I did I just think she's a genius and I I want people to be able to see this because I think it's also really supportive of the arts so again you're just talking about going to Amazon yes I got it it was on prime video yeah and what do you look for sleep just look up fleabag I see it it's it's right in that you know you'll see the TV show but then you'll also see this the the one woman show with Phoebe Waller bridge did you watch both did you watch any of that show no I watch none of it and I don't know why because in fact I love British television I love Olivia Colman who I know isn't it I also love that the guy who plays the priest Harleys he's so hot he has been in a number of things but also he played Moriarty and that Benedict Cumberbatch Sherlock yeah Holly you because you actually recommended it to me and I watched it shortly after that it probably I would put that on your list right because it just is it's a meaningful show yeah I know I I I'm actually surprised at what you need to well I'd be curious to hear and I would I would highly recommend if in and I'm not trying to tell you what to do but I would recommend do you know at least watching the stage show yeah how long is an ex it's like an hour and a half that's not bad it really isn't and it will it will you know you'll have to get it sort of like when you watch pair saying you have to get used to the subtitles yeah you'll have to get used to the fact that you're watching a stage show on your television and that you're not in the audience but but you'll get that you'll get the gist of it and it and like I said like a portion of what the they earn from this streaming opportunity will also help some charities that are helping actors who are currently out of work look anything to change up our television habits at this point because we've we are finding some stuff it's rough out there right it is rough out there you know where to land in the world of streaming television because there's so much I know it's true but I'm telling you this is a great supplement to another really wonderful show and you can just ease.

"It is the best predictor of a child being as parents self understanding on today's show. You're GONNA talk about. We are going to talk about effortless perfection affection. And I'm going to be talking about me that by the way I'm drinking a smoothie and they say that sometimes it makes you cough actually it. Last time I did that during the show I coughed the whole time. Do you remember. I just decided well are you. Are you effortlessly perfect. I'm effortlessly perfect But first we have a conference come up February twentieth and twenty nine. Th early bird is over what he means. The early bird is over as we had early bird prices until last Friday but do not despair because you can still get tickets to the conference. Just go to zen parenting radio DOT COM or is then parenting conference dot COM I just found out that there are are a few more spaces for my pre conference workshop. which is good news? I did not think there were. There's more spaces for the guys. Pre Conference workshops to Sweden. Are there spaces for both. So if you already have a ticket new thought we'd run out. We have more and if you don't have your ticket yet you can still get one in. My goal is to get a trying to balance insys out closer to a fifty fifty ratio men to women. I know that that's a lofty goal and probably is going to happen. But let's do our best to get because we're going to talk about boys and masculinity entity and girls and femininity and everything in between we have this thing that not just todd and I but everybody has this thing that sometimes when things are do things can be moving along meaning changing and growing. But it's hard for us to see how much things have changed. We still get very focused and I want want it to be better. I have this thing on my vision board. That says you know I can't I can't remember the exact quote but this is the gist. Like you know if you a year ago if you can see where you were going to be you would have been psyched. Sure and we have had more men come but I think because this year we are are focusing so much unhealthy masculinity. It just makes sense to if you're going to jump in this is a year so we you know what the Egos good at moving targets always the and that's a good that's a more succinct distinct way to say what I said is that you know. Sometimes we'll be like if if I could just have this year. Everything would be great but guess. What as soon as that year comes? You're like no by need a few more things this isn't it'll be happy right which is very connected to what we're talking about today Yes but before you get there the tribe. Men's retreat were almost sold route. Seventy one days away were sold out selling more because we want to give the opportunity for as many guys as we think we can facilitate A. and create a space to have an amazing weekend and I get all that. I just thought we were talking about numbers already in that you were all setting their. We're getting there all right and then and you and I have to figure out what we're GONNA do for culturing no plans as I've been gone and we've been we were at fourteen forty and then I went away. It's just we're we're we're we're not burning the candle at both ends exactly but time hasn't been on our side as rolling stone time One quick take yes. They were jumping okay benedict cumberbatch. Sherlock won't take a role if the female co star isn't paid equally. Yes he says if if she's not paid the same as the men. I'm not doing it. Yes I can go on but I'm not going to just awesome. Thank you benedict right. Drop the MIC right and just so you know. There's there's been a lot of production companies like I know. Michael Jordan's production company has that kind of a parody to where he not only is the pay. Ah the same. But he has made the commitment to making sure. There's just as many women working on the film as behind the scenes and and this is like a big lofty goal for these these. They are the pioneers. Because there's there are plenty of women and men and women of color and men of color to do this work but maybe they're not in that mainstream yet with everybody so they have to do the work to make sure that they bring people in and they do that work for us so we find this amazing talent and we find these people who haven't been given a shot and instead of sticking within that network I I I really think it's fantastic. I appreciate You know I appreciate organizations. That are willing to do that. I appreciate you sweetie. So it ain't you've been talking about so we're going to talk about effortless perfection and you just using effortless kind of just to be like what's the word like. I'm kind of making fun fun of it. Because there's no such thing it's somewhat of an oxymoron forecasting sarcastic. I'm being I'm being funny. Effortless perfection. Right well I was rereading so Anna Quindlin. Has these little books that I love. They're like they're pretty old. I'm trying to remember when they came out like like in early. Two thousand two thousand five one is called being perfect and one is called. I think the can't remember what the other one's called but this one being perfect I occasionally just pick it up literally takes me five minutes to read but it says nothing important or meaningful or beautiful or or interesting or great ever came out of imitations what is really hard and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself more difficult because there is no Zeitgeist to read no template follow mask to wear terrifying actually chilly because it requires you to set aside what your friends expect what your family and your coworkers demand. What you're quaint require to set aside the messages this? This culture sends through its advertising entertainment disdain and disapproval about how you should behave and then it goes on to say you set aside tradition and expectation. He and I just been writing about this a lot lately. How this really is the The goal of innocent even. It's not a goal like as soon as you start the words start to mess with the understanding. It's that eventually it could be when you're forty sixty twenty or sixteen gene. You have to get to the work of being yourself authenticity you do and again even that were even though I use that word all the time but people be like Yep I gotta be authentic. What what does that mean mean? It means that we were having this We don't need to use our daughters for this we can just use ourselves but you know some of your children may have more difficulty in one area and that is okay and that's not something you need to say. It shouldn't be this way or she should do it this way this way because everybody else does or we. We may have an expectation that we had either for our kids ourselves and it doesn't work out but that doesn't mean we're failing it is in the work of being ourselves. Selves is figuring out really. What's the most important the most important port and you know kind of getting back to that city slickers thing the one thing and then allowing everything else around it to kind of move and to not feel as if as if you are I like her language about fitting a template or that we do especially for our children? There is such a starting with getting in the right preschool. There is such a line line. We're think we're supposed to follow and adhere to and it never ends so it never ends so it starts when you are in When you're I remember Abell talked about this on his launching rockets program? There's parents sign their kids up for preschool. When they're born you leave with got hanes talked about that last time? We saw that that as soon as your child is born. And she actually didn't didn't she tell a funny story about how they had. Just come home from the hospital. She said her husband likes swing by the school. Great needed like a birth certificate. And you know that's that's setup is a setup for sure and what's seductive if you start art down that path babies born in your unless you make shift. You're probably GONNA keep doing that type of thing throughout their entire higher academic career into their real life job stuff like you know exactly and well they don't and that's why I mean like some kids teen some. Some teenagers figured this out some young kids figure this out where they're like no. I'm not going to do it. This way Some of the people that I see the most are women. Thirty thirty five to about fifty. Who Start to figure this out and who start to realize? They've been following all the rules doing all the things they were told adhering to the template and they're miserable so who eventually you figure this out and it can be kind of slog until you do and you you base yourself off of external measures. Here's you base yourself off of how everyone else is holding you up and you lose track of what feels right to you and again like I said if you have a child eld who like we were just talking about this like school you have to go to school in some way shape or form right so that can be what your donation foundation Dacian is and then there's all sorts of things around that that can change but we'd sometimes treat everything else like school and this is just the example that you that's a good way to say it and soccer practice and ballet and debate team and football is not as important as school yet when I treat it like you cannot Miss Mr Football practice because if you do in your coach is going to end well and even the system is set up that way. There's there's I know like in certain sports. They say if you miss a practice you get kicked off. Yeah well our A few of our friends are on the track team cross country country and it starts before school starts right just kind of funny starts in like surly August and then we because we spend time with his family we'd go away with them or Labor Day and the kids can't spend the entire Labor Day weekend with us because they have to go to Because if you miss a certain amount you're off the team right and you can argue that depending lend you're looking at through you can say. Yeah of course I see making commitment. You GotTa do it its priorities. What is the most important thing? Now if our kids were on cross country. They're not but if they hated it or really disliked it then it would make what are you doing. They love it corrects. Then yes missed the family vacation for me and you. It's like why are we going to miss. But I know there's a lot of parents out there who varsity athletes like we have to structure our lives around the sport right. I understand that I'm not judging that at all all but are you structuring. Your lives around that sport because your child wants that or because you think that's what you do. Here's the thing is this is what I mean about. You have to be able to pull everything apart. It gets all mixed up or Goud together into this ball of Goud. Yeah I'm picturing it like a big Wad of gum and it's all these things that we make one big WADA. Gump have to have to have to because the house and really if you start to pull it apart and again you may say yes my child wants is this. Then you'd build like we have had these discussions a lot. There are certain things that are not like hugely long-term things but they've been really into that we for example we leave for holiday break late because one of our daughters has performance that she really wants to do now we could say put our foot down and say no we were gonNA leave on Friday. We're not waiting till Sunday. But sh this is something that's important to her. So but you guys are are hearing the word into her. Do you know what I mean like. Sometimes as a family we say this is what you do right versus and again this is where it's not just about sports. We're we're kind of going on that track but it's really about anything this whole idea. That kids have to just even the word half to have to show show up this way and look this way and be this way in every aspect of their lives it it eventually maybe not right away but could lead to a lot of anxiety could lead to a lot of depression feeling if you are being forced to do things always you can understand. Why sense of hopelessness comes in? This is all about at what cost now. The problem is we don't know what the cost is. We don't know like if you're one of those parents says no you gotta go to school every single day even if you have a low grade fever like I'm just making up then then you could be thinking. Oh I'm teaching my kids perseverance. Resilience that grit all that stuff. Sure it is possible. You might be doing that but you also might be teaching them that they're going to be kind of what you just said anxiety right and this is why. I'm like you have to build a foundation like if the most important thing is you gotta get to school then that is going to be where you have to draw the line with. We're GONNA go to. School is something that has to be done by law right. It's not really a hard reach but even that if you think about it and I'm sorry to interrupt you but we've talked about the emotional wellness day like the right but I'm just talking. I mean that's a day versus I'm talking about the the overall overall what do you have to talk about the nuance within what we're talking about. So so but let's take school. For example out of school comes activities homework expectations grades grades Blah Blah Blah so going to school is essential but maybe.

"It is the best predictor of a child being as parents self understanding on today's show you're GonNa talk about we are going to talk about effortless perfection affection and I'm going to be talking about me that by the way I'm drinking a smoothie and they say that sometimes it makes you cough actually it last time I did that during the show I coughed the whole time do you remember coughing I just decided well are you are you effortlessly perfect I'm effortlessly perfect but first we have a conference come up February twentieth and twenty nine th early bird is over what he means the early bird is over as we had early bird prices until last Friday but do not despair because you can still get tickets to the conference just go to Zen parenting radio DOT COM or is then parenting conference dot com I just found out that there are are a few more spaces for my pre conference workshop which is good news I did not think there were there's more spaces for the guys pre conference workshops to Sweden are there spaces for both so if you already have a ticket new thought we'd run out we have more and if you don't have your ticket yet you can still get one in my goal is to get a trying to balance insys out closer to a fifty fifty ratio men to women I know that that's a lofty goal and probably is going to happen but let's do our best to get because we're going to talk about boys and masculinity entity and girls and femininity and everything in between we have this thing that not just todd and I but everybody has this thing that sometimes when things are do things can be moving along meaning changing and growing but it's hard for us to see how much things have changed we still get very focused and I want want it to be better I have this thing on my vision board that says you know I can't I can't remember the exact quote but this is the gist like you know if you a year ago if you can see where you were going to be you would have been psyched sure and we have had more men come but I think because this year we are are focusing so much unhealthy masculinity it just makes sense to if you're going to jump in this is a year so we you know what the Egos good at moving targets always the and that's a good that's a more succinct distinct way to say what I said is that you know sometimes we'll be like if if I could just have this year everything would be great but guess what as soon as that year comes you're like no by need a few more things this isn't it'll be happy right which is very connected to what we're talking about today yes but before you get there the tribe men's retreat were almost sold route seventy one days away were sold out selling more because we want to give the opportunity for as many guys as we think we can facilitate A. and create a space to have an amazing weekend and I get all that I just thought we were talking about numbers already in that you were all setting their we're getting there all right and then and you and I have to figure out what we're GONNA do for culturing no plans as I've been gone and we've been we were at fourteen forty and then I went away it's just we're we're we're we're not burning the candle at both ends exactly but time hasn't been on our side as rolling stone time one quick take yes they were jumping okay benedict cumberbatch sherlock won't take a role if the female co star isn't paid equally yes he says if if she's not paid the same as the men I'm not doing it yes I can go on but I'm not going to just awesome thank you benedict right drop the mic right and just so you know there's there's been a lot of production companies like I know Michael Jordan's production company has that kind of a parody to where he not only is the pay ah the same but he has made the commitment to making sure there's just as many women working on the film as behind the scenes and and this is like a big lofty goal for these these they are the pioneers because there's there are plenty of women and men and women of color and men of color to do this work but maybe they're not in that mainstream yet with everybody so they have to do the work to make sure that they bring people in and they do that work for us so we find this amazing talent and we find these people who haven't been given a shot and instead of sticking within that network I I I really think it's fantastic I appreciate You know I appreciate organizations that are willing to do that I appreciate you sweetie so it ain't you've been talking about so we're going to talk about effortless perfection and you just using effortless kind of just to be like what's the word like I'm kind of making fun fun of it because there's no such thing it's somewhat of an oxymoron forecasts are cast Dick I'm being I'm being funny effortless perfection right well I was rereading so Anna Quindlin has these little books that I love they're like they're pretty old I'm trying to remember when they came out like like in early two thousand two thousand five one is called being perfect and one is called I think the can't remember what the other one's called but this one being perfect I occasionally just pick it up literally takes me five minutes to read but it says nothing important or meaningful or beautiful or or interesting or great ever came out of imitations what is really hard and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself more difficult because there is no Zeitgeist to read no template follow mask to wear terrifying actually chilly because it requires you to set aside what your friends expect what your family and your coworkers demand what you're quaint require to set aside the messages this this culture sends through its advertising entertainment disdain and disapproval about how you should behave and then it goes on to say you set aside tradition and expectation he and I just been writing about this a lot lately how this really is the the goal of innocent even it's

You heard at the end was a picture falling off the wall at fleabag empires words, as riffs on questions of belief season. Two pulls off, the rare feat of taking a Shuji successful show and making it much better in part by revealing the limitations of the original, where's the enjoyable, I season proved Waller bridges versatility? As an actress her is the animated eloquence of a silent film stars is sometimes betrayed its origins. As a one woman theatrical show, it was a tad, too eager to tickle the audience with its nuttiness. And the other characters felt less lived in than they should at times. The whole world seemed like an edge joked to fleabag psyche in the second season. Everything is richer, and more fluid fee begs. Family takes on a new emotional solidity, even clears cartoon noxious, husband played by Gilman, develop some shading, and in Scott Muller, riches phoned perfect foil with his oddball, timing, and slightly intoxicated affect his priest. Does for fleabag? What is regarded for Benedict Cumberbatch Sherlock Holmes? He knocks out of comfort zone. Well, all six parts are good. I want to single out the third one of the greatest episodes of television, I've ever seen juggling low comedy and high wit it moves from a farcical gag about flatulence to Kristin Scott Thomas character giving a majestic speech about women's aging to breathtakingly intimate scene with the priest in which Waller bridge takes the convention of character directly addressing the audience and gives it a spin so original, it's thrilling you grasp. What makes him and their relationship? So special. Victim Stein once said that the aim of philosophy is to show the fly the way out of the fly bottle that imprisons it season. Two finds fleabag trying to escape the fly bottle of her own hit with all its theatrical loneliness and longing. Without ever getting precious yourself healthy. It's learning to believe in the possibility of human relationships that are genuine emotionally connected and capable of enduring was beg reaches such belief, you'll have to decide for her part, while they're bridges made a decision of her own resisting the current imperative to keep shows going season after season. She's already announced this is the end of fleabag, which is just further proof of how great the show is after all, if there's anything harder than the king, a good season of television.

"And if you're just joining us, my guest is Barbara Brown Taylor when she was first on fresh air. It was after she'd written a memoir about leaving her work as the rector of a small church in the foothills of the Appalachians in Georgia, and she is an ordained episcopal priest. She left the church, she left being a practicing priest to become a professor of the world's religions at Piedmont college and her new book is about teaching the world's religions affected her students and how I changed her. And that book is called holy envy. Finding God in the faith of others. So, you know, it's interesting you've dedicated your life to move practicing and studying religion, your parents believed in higher education, not a higher power. They discouraged you from pursuing religion to was it an act of rebellion. When you joined a church. I think it was. And I think like any child if you're parents point you away from something that becomes the most interesting thing, but I also had a kind of. I wouldn't call it a God hunger. Then but in a way, they freed me. It was wonderful because none of the threats of the early youth. Ministers. Could get to me at all if I misbehaved and they threatened to call my parents. I said go ahead. My parents think I'm crazy to be here. Anyhow, so it was very freeing in terms of of that. But I whatever it was it started early in my life of hunger for the beyond for the transcendent for the the light within the light, the the glow within the grass the sparkle within the water. And I think that went from a kind of nature mysticism to looking for other ways in which. That was articulated by people. So I was built Ford. I guess your early years growing up your early childhood was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. What religion were you exposed to as young child? I was exposed in Tuscaloosa to the episcopal church because I was confirmation age twelve thirteen and my best friend's father was the rector of that church, and he was very brave during the civil rights movement. When the university of Alabama was integrating for the first time. So that got my attention as a young person and adolescent who was already familiar with social Justice besides being acted out. In in that. Church before that, my parents had taken me to a Methodist church for a year that was in Dublin, Ohio. So I also had a wonderful experience there. But after that, I went on and visited quite a number of places with friends ending up in the Baptist church. The southern Baptist version when I was sixteen where I was baptized by immersion. So having been exposed I to the episcopal church, and now, you're an ordained, a Piscopo priest. What led you to become a southern Baptist Terry? His name was Jack. All right. I think it would be the truth would be that. I was exposed the Methodist church the episcopal church after that the Unitarians, and then the Presbyterians, and then interfaith campus ministry, and then I went to seminary and all of a sudden met professors scholars, you know, people who began to talk to me about religion in a whole different way and many of them were a Piscopo aliens. So I followed them into that church and have found it a wonderful home for me, the southern Baptist. Peace had very much to do with being a sophomore in high school and traveling with a crowd of friends who were Southern Baptists, and who in their own ways were very worried about my future with God. So they pressured me pretty hard. And it definitely matters that my boyfriend was one of them. So he he got drafted to go to Vietnam and asked me if I would become baptized before he shipped out. And there was no way to say no to that. That's really interesting that you got baptized because of your boyfriend. So what what was the religious significance of that for you? We was that. Did it have a deep meaning for you. And you were baptized. Or you doing it for for him? It did not have deep meaning. And and I think I'm not the only person who approaches a religious ceremony like that. And is disappointed that the heavens did not part and nothing no voice came. But I do think I did it for the wrong reasons unless loving him was a right reason and setting his mind somehow, but I did not make that decision for the right reasons and less loving him was the right reason because it did set his mind at ease. But I was out of that church within the year for having behaved badly. I brought hippies to church and that turned out not. So did he survive the war and did your relationship survive? The relationship did not survive, but I was happy to learn he had survived and I believe he became an army chaplain. So he he went on and and was one of the lucky ones who came home. But no, I think things between us petered out about the time. I left the Baptist church. So you're still in a Piscopo priest. Although you no longer are the rector of a church and haven't been for for many years when we spoke in two thousand six you said you still wore your collar on Sundays when you go to church. Do you still wear it on Sundays? It doesn't fit anymore. And they're made out of plastic. Anyone who's tried to wear one? Really? They're really uncomfortable. Yeah. Like, a really like starched cotton like a stiff cotton. Well, if you're very very aristocratic then. Yes, you would wear a Lennon call caller and have someone who starts it for you. But I was never one of those. So now, I like to think now that I'm incognito I'm undercover or something I have a wonderful. I've had a series of wonderful bishops who've appreciated what I do well enough to to let me have a very long long, whatever line of permission to to be in churches in a variety of churches in and out of a lot of Christianity's without yanking me back. Do you have a regular place of worship? Now. I don't have a regular place of worship which has helped me realize that even the best Christian language. D church is not one physical place at the corner of two streets. The church is a communion of people around the world in different walks of life. And on different continents who who share teachings about. What makes life meaningful and? What God wills for our relationships with each other? But I am not a regular participant who walks through the doors of a particular church on Sunday. Why not? There is only one church in the county where I live in. It's the church I served for five and a half years, and though I have good relationships with people still in that congregation whom I knew, and I hope the clergy who have served at church would say I have had good relationships with them yet when I walk through those doors, it's like going back into a part of my life that doesn't fit me anymore. And it would be like getting back into clothes that have become too small like the clergy collar has. So and there are still people there who I think them back. I'm a kind of time machine. Now, if I showed up more often that wouldn't happen. But all I can tell you is I go from time to time and most of the time, I don't. Okay. Have been wonderful to talk with you. Thank you so much. You're so wonderful to ask me these questions. I had all my answers preferred two different questions. So. Isn't it? Great that you won't be greated. Yes. Yes. Yes. I'm gonna think a lot about the heaven inhale being the and the f. Barbara brown. Taylor is the author of the new memoir. Holy envy. Finding God in the faith of others. After a break. John powers will review a new three part British crime series. The John says is different from nearly all of today's crime shows. This is fresh air. This is fresh air when the three part crime series manhunt, aired in the UK in January one person in seven watched it based on a true story the show stars Martin clones as a London police detective who leads a team tracking down a serial killer are critic at large. John powers has seen manhunt which begins streaming today on acorn TV and says, it's very different from nearly all of today's TV crime shows. It has become the nature of television to ramp up everything even things that don't need it like murder. We've run so accustomed to seeing hot-button crimes in high-powered cops. Did it feels almost radical? When a crime show goes in the other direction and plays. It straight such a show is manhunt a new three part series on the popular Anglophiles streaming service. Acorn tv. Based on the true story of a serial killer working in and around Twickenham in south west London. The show became a smash hit when it aired in the UK a couple of months ago. It takes a murder that became a tabloid spectacle and transforms it into a deaf primer on the unspectacular reality of police work. The story begins in two thousand four when a man walking by Twickenham green spot. Emily Dila garage. A twenty two year old French student who's been attacked when she dies Scotland Yard assigns the murder case to detective chief inspector, Colin Sutton, a low key tenacious, man. Played by Martin plumes. Best known as the starve doc marten whose face you'll recognize if you've ever turned on PBS during a pledge drive. It's a big case the becomes even bigger when both the press and the cops start noticing similarities between Emily's murder and the earlier unsolved murder of another young blonde woman. But there are no witnesses are smoking guns. And so along with his sidekick detective sergeant Joe brunt. Played by Keedy lions setting in his team said about the laborious work of interviewing neighbors, and almost literally beating the bushes. Defined physical evidence here Sutton addresses team after divers recovered some of ALI'S possessions in the nearby river. Thames clues that gives some idea of the killers movements. Blocked with the river Thames gave up a house keys, I post and a CD player after sticking to your guns. But we still haven't found a fungal back. Search is ongoing. So we know that she was attacked around ten o'clock on Twickenham green. We know phone went off line at ten twenty three and Walton when it was dumped in the river. So we know he's in a vehicle, we know we went from the green so Walton, and we know, but we didn't know, but there's only a certain number of ways you could make that journey in twenty minutes and wind and find out which took how so you. Examining that footage is an even vaster tasks that it may sound for London. CCTV cameras are like Starbucks in American cities completely inescapable. Now before the show I'd never even heard of these killings. But over there, the case was soon notorious that pretty much everybody already knew the name of the thug who committed them, and so men becomes less. A who done it then how catch him it unfolds in the same patient stylistically unflashy way as the Oscar winning film spotlight in which a group of Boston Globe. Reporters crack open net cities, Roman Catholic sex abuse scandal. The action is anchored, by Sutton, who has pointedly not extraordinary, although he possesses a hint of charisma, he doesn't bristle with genius like Benedict. Cumberbatch Sherlock doesn't wax metaphysical? Like, Matthew, mcconaughey? Intruder -tective doesn't hit the bottle like Helen Mirren in prime suspect, though, he doesn't joy glass of wine with his wife Louise nicely played by Claudie Blakely who works for the police in Surrey and thinks your husband doesn't take root career seriously..

But I whatever it was it started early in my life of hunger for the beyond for the transcendent for the the light within the light, the the glow within the grass the sparkle within the water. And I think that went from kind of nature mysticism to looking for other ways in which. That was articulated by people. So I was Bill Ford. I guess your early years growing up your early childhood was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. What religion will you expose to as young child? I was exposed in Tuscaloosa to the episcopal church because I was confirmation age twelve thirteen and my best friend's father was the rector of that church, and he was very brave during the civil rights movement. When the university of Alabama was integrating for the first time. So that got my attention as a young person an adolescent who was already familiar with social Justice besides being acted out. In in that. Church before that, my parents had taken me to a Methodist church for a year that was in Dublin, Ohio. So I also had a wonderful experience there. But after that, I went on and visited quite a number of places with friends ending up in the Baptist church. The southern Baptist version when I was sixteen where I was baptized by immersion. So having been exposed I to the episcopal church, and now, you're an ordained, a Piscopo priest. What led you to become a southern Baptist Terry? His name was Jack. All right. I think it would be the truth would be that. I was exposed the Methodist church the episcopal church after that the Unitarians, and then the Presbyterians, and then interfaith campus ministry, and then I went to seminary and all of a sudden met professors scholars people who began to talk to me about religion in a whole different way and many of them were a Piscopo aliens. So I followed them into that church and have found it a wonderful home for me, the southern Baptist. Peace had very much to do with being a sophomore in high school and traveling with a crowd of friends who were Southern Baptists, and who in their own ways were very worried about my future with God. So they pressured me pretty hard. And it definitely matters. It my boyfriend was one of them. So he he got drafted to go to Vietnam and asked me if I would become baptized before he shipped out. And there was no way to say no to that. That's really interesting that you got baptized because of your boyfriend. So what what was the religious significance of that for you? We was that. Did it have a deep meaning for you. And you were baptized. Or are you doing it for for him? It did not have deep meaning. And and I think I'm not the only person who approaches a religious ceremony like that. And is disappointed that the heavens did not part and nothing no voice came. But I do think I did it for the wrong reasons unless loving him was a right reason and setting his mind at ease somehow, but I did not make that decision for the right reasons and less loving him was the right reason because it did set his mind at ease. But I was out of that church within the year for having behaved badly. I brought hippies to church and that turned out not. So did he survive the war and did your relationship survive? The relationship did not survive, but I was happy to learn he had survived and I believe he became an army chaplain. So he he went on and and was one of the lucky ones who came home. But no, I think things between us petered out about the time. I left the Baptist church. So you're still an episcopal priest. Although you no longer are the rector of a church and haven't been for for many years when we spoke in two thousand six you said you still wore your collar on Sundays when you go to church. Do you still wear it on Sundays? It doesn't fit anymore. And they're made out of plastic. Anyone who's tried to wear what they're really uncomfortable? Yeah. Unless you're like a really like starched cotton like a stiff cotton. Well, if you're very very aristocratic, then yes, you would wear a Lennon Cal caller and have someone who had starts for you. But I was never one of those. So now like to think now that I'm incognito undercover or something. I have a wonderful. I've had a series of wonderful bishops who've appreciated what I do well enough to to let me have a very long long, whatever line of permission to to be in churches in a variety of churches in and out of a lot of Christianity's without yanking me back. Do you have a regular place of worship? Now. I don't have a regular place of worship which has helped me realize that even in the best Christian language. The church is not one physical place at the corner of two streets. The church is a communion of people around the world in different walks of life. And on different continents who who share teachings about. What makes life meaningful and? What God wills for our relationships with each other? But I am not a regular participant who walks through the doors of a particular church on Sunday. Why not? There is only one church in the county where I live in. It's the church I served for five and a half years, and though I have good relationships with people still in that congregation whom I knew, and I hope the clergy who have served at church would say I have had good relationships with them yet when I walk through those doors, it's like going back into a part of my life that doesn't fit me anymore. And it would be like getting back into clothes that have become too small like the clergy collar has. So and there are still people there who I them back. I'm kind of time machine. Now, if I showed up more often that wouldn't happen. But all I can tell you is I go from time to time and most of the time, I don't. Okay. You know, have been wonderful to talk with you. Thank you so much. You're so wonderful to ask me these questions. I had all my answers preferred two different questions. So. Isn't it? Great that you won't be graded. Yes. Yes. Yes. Oh, I'm going to think a lot about the heaven and hell being the a and the F. Barbara brown. Taylor is the author of the new memoir. Holy envy. Finding God in the faith of others. After a break. John powers will review a new three part British crime series. The John says is different from nearly all of today's crime shows. This is fresh air. This is fresh air when the three part crime series manhunt, aired in the UK in January one person in seven watched it based on a true story the show stars Martin clones as a London police detective who leads a team tracking down a serial killer are critic at large. John powers has seen manhunt which begins streaming today on acorn TV and says, it's very different from nearly all of today's TV crime shows. It has become the nature of television to ramp up everything even things that don't need it like murder. We've grown so accustomed to seeing hot button crimes in high-powered cops. Then it feels almost radical when a crime show goes in the other direction and plays. It straight such a show is manhunt a new three part series on the popular. Anglophiles streaming service e corn TV. Based on the true story of a serial killer working in and around Twickenham in south west London. The show became a smash hit when it aired in the UK a couple of months ago. It takes a murder that became a tabloid spectacle and transforms it into a deaf primer on the unspectacular reality of police work. The story begins in two thousand four when a man walking by Twickenham green spots. Emily. A twenty two year old French student who's been attacked when she dies. Scotland Yard signs the murder case to detective chief inspector Collins Sutton, a low key tenacious, man. Played by Martin plumes. Best known as the star of doc Martin whose face your recognized if you've ever turned on PBS during a pledge drive. It's a big case, it becomes even bigger when both the press and the cops start noticing similarities between families murder and the earlier unsolved murder of another young blonde woman. But there are no witnesses were smoking guns. And so along with his sidekick detective sergeant Joe brunt played by Katie Lyons Sutton in his team said about the laborious work of interviewing neighbors, and almost literally beating the bushes defined physical evidence here Sutton addresses his team after divers recover some of his possessions in the nearby river. Thames clues that gives some idea of the killers movements. Blocked with the river Thames gave up a house keys a purse and a CD player that's not locked after sticking to your guns. But we still haven't found a fungal back. Search is ongoing. So we know that she was attacked around ten o'clock on Twickenham green. We know our phone went off line at ten twenty three Walton when it was dumped in the river. So we know he's in a vehicle, we know we went from the green so wanted, and we know way, but we don't always know. But there's only a certain number ways you could make that journey in twenty minutes. And we didn't find out which one he took how? CCTV examining that footage is an even vaster tasks that it may sound for in London. CCTV cameras are like Starbucks in American cities completely in escape -able. Now before the show I'd never even heard of these killings, but over there, the case was so notorious that pretty much everybody already knew the name of the thug who committed them, and so men becomes less. A who done it then how catch him it unfolds in the same patient stylistically unflashy way as the Oscar winning film spotlight in which a group of Boston Globe. Reporters crack open that city's Roman Catholic sex abuse scandal. The action is anchored, by Sutton, who has pointedly not extraordinary, although he possesses a hint of charisma, he doesn't bristle with genius like Benedict. Cumberbatch Sherlock doesn't wax metaphysical? Like, Matthew, mcconaughey? Intruder -tective doesn't hit the bottle like Helen Mirren in prime suspect. Though, he does enjoy a glass of wine with his wife Louise, nicely played by Claudie Blakely who works for the police in Surrey and thinks your husband doesn't take recruiter seriously. With his Wendy is and sardonic mouth. Clones is ideal for characters who are more awkward than suave and a certain he gives a wonderfully modulated portrait of a good solid. Copper who stubborn doggedness makes him an annoying boss and a frustrating husband. But sometimes also the kind of honorable chap who will go to France to apologize to Emily's. Parents for Scotland Yard's failure to nab the serial killer before he murdered their daughter. Every crime show presents a vision of the world often these days a dark one manhunt is one of the rare dramas that deliberately celebrates collective action over individual brilliance. It shows how through hard incremental often tedious work a team of investigators are able to crack tricky case in the world. We actually live in, you know, the one in which no CSI lab in Las Vegas can miraculously solve every crime. Nothing's your utopian Sutton's. Underlings grown at the worke demands. There's a wise acre who second guesses his decisions and the impatient. Sutton himself. Tosses fire on the rivalry between the London police and their counterpart in Surrey both of which want to control the investigation. Wise to the politics of police bureaucracy Lewis warns him that if he doesn't catch serial killer. The failure will be an albatross around his neck. Yet, despite this manhunt is reassuring to watch and not only because Sutton and company do catch the killer who I'm happy to say isn't romanticized or made somehow colorful, the show champions an idea of the social contract that has fallen out of fashion. It suggests that even though monstrous things do happen, if ordinary flawed people pulled together common decency can still prevail. John powers reviewed the crime series manhunt. Which is now streaming on acorn TV tomorrow on fresh air. My guest will be the near at times deputy counsel, David mccraw. We'll talk about issues he's faced during the Trump presidency. When he says the war over press freedom is about the very nature of truth as the newsroom lawyer, he's dealt with the publication of WikiLeaks documents and sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein lawsuits kidnappings personal threats against reporters and more. He has a new memoir. I hope you'll join us..

"But yeah, those are all three I mean full metal jacket and high school. We always use the watch the I can watch those clips old drill. Sergeant. We can't play those clips or repeat them. But they're funny. Good stuff. This question here comes from Clayton. Barnett our good friend good friend of the show. Are you trying to avoid spoilers for season eight or watching for them? I haven't heard anything really. I'm not going after. I haven't seen you. I'm not. I never go spoilers. Okay. Now, definitely avoiding it like anything else. But I haven't really season seven I felt like there's a lot of buzz like oh spoilers going around. I don't really seen anything for season eight. Yeah. I haven't seen much either usually get on Reddit. Oh, the season eight scripts leaked haven't seen much of that. I think season is tough to predict it's really up in the air because there are certain threads from previous seasons where we could kind of connect them. Not not so much season eight. Yeah. You guys kind of know what's going on at three in the books. Do kinda know where we'll what's going to happen. Not re- leading to people have been theorizing the end of the show for decades. Yeah. The end of the books, so we kind of look into that. And George said that he's ready theory that predicted the end. Yeah. That's really that's not. So. Well, I mean, you say that and there's like a million theories it's like, which he predicted the ending that he had in mind at that time, it's probably complete different now. Well, he predicted that there was going to be an ending first mistake. This question here comes from Kane. Kane the stranger with glass recently being released on curious, what are some of your favorite, non marvel? Dc superhero films. Chronicle is a personal favorite of mine. It's so funny. When I read the question, I was like, oh, I'm going to say chronicle, and then he takes thanks. A lot came kick ass. I like kick ass kiss. Why we're so close to the end. Trying to think of non marvel DC's you began with all the glass universe. I mean split on breakable would probably be my favorite. Yeah. It is pretty good. What else is there? Hell boy. Yeah. Dc now marvel I guess you can kinda go sin city you could throw watchmen in there because it's it's like DC jas John with. There's a super here. Yeah. I'll give you that. Fucking superman credible ze. Yeah. Incredible cz. I went from incredible thread Morgan. Their character from a TV or film adaptation that was nail perfectly from a book or something like that. That's a good question that is Benedict. Cumberbatch Sherlock, Holmes? He is a good show Robert Downey junior ironman, obviously, they changed him a little bit. I'm trying to think of like the perfect add up tation. I'm trying to game. Thrones. There are few like little finger virus characters like that. My favorite game of thrones. Casting will always be little finger. Yeah. That's when you look at the fan or drawings before the show was even out. He looks like Aidan gillen. It's amazing. But I think the best I always say some of the best Taiwian Ned stark characters. I know that the nail the perfectly is when I go back and read the books, and I envisioned Sean bean, right? Yeah. Or eight and Gillan where Tyrian you can't you can't pick your Peter because ways described in the books, it's so different. But probably the best actor to play that character. But the question is who's the most like their counterpart? Yeah. I I think Wendling Chrissy to Brienne is one that the I mean where did she come from? How the fuck did they find her the moa memoria? Yeah. That's a good one and Amelia Clark. Scenarios is a good one trying to think from other works. Besides game of thrones. Oh, Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter. Yeah. That's a great one. Yeah. That's one that. I'd like to be good video idea..
