I'm i'm i'm going to be going to be be your ass you'll get back on track here or more crack the whip on chick. The match was entertaining and both deserve credit for keeping it from being bad. And you know. Listen i know that seems like a negative way to go into it but if you really are arresting quote unquote purist a lot of times. When you hear. There's going to be celebrity involvement. The biggest thing you can hope for is just. Don't let it be a disaster and this was anything by right who's excellent. I agree damn good man come on for an outsider to come in and have the performance and lt had absolutely tremendous especially with the omen of the huge pyro. That we have planned for lt which of these giant letters lt that lit up and then shot off all this crazy pyro and everything and the fucking thing fell. It was probably. I don't know maybe twenty feet above the ring and they lower the damn thing we get ready to shove sheet off the pyro to rehearse it and see how it looks and everything first time doing it and you know it's one of those everybody clear back from the rain. We're going to be lowering this. We're going to be shooting pyro. We gotta test us. Make sure it's good. And it hits the fucking i don't know if it was the l. Were the t. One of the letters just drops in crashes in the rain early on. I guess we'll be doing that. Interest tonight next adam that shit down and take it back would i. I think it was the l. because it like broke that's Fucking horrible man. Who is like god damn it but then it would have been cool have been able to do so still be in an open somewhere. Tell me about Vince is reaction to this match. See all over bam bam when he comes through the curtain in guerrilla great ship palsy. Thrilled with what he's saying here. Yeah loved it. who's excellent. Was dammed a job on. Everyone's part even you. You go back in the football players that we had down there. That were pros. All the way through. Chris spillman class. Just personify ken norton statement michael. They were all every one of them was eight pleasure to work with and happy to be there that i remember them coming up Like the day of or the day before we have in the day before they were all arriving in the lobby of the hotel. And just were just just fucking great but they asked us of. I'm hey I hear you guys have a party after wrestlemainia Do you think we would. We be able to come to that. The parties for you you know and they all came and were just respectful great That was a great crew of people from outside of our business came in appreciated everything. We did and embraced. Let's talk about the show Even though at immediately afterwards you guys are bragging that said all kinds of records on pay per view it fell short. It was down fifteen percent from wrestlemainia ten but the gay was seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Which isn't like double or wrestlemainia. Ten was and in fact. It's the seventh largest gay in america so huge numbers here and the pay per view is actually costing more money so even though we're down fifteen percent when total buys win for twenty nine ninety five to thirty four ninety five so we did get an increase their Do you remember being disappointed. That all this mainstream publicity and press didn't translate to the number of originally hoped it was a little disappointing but at the same time. There was a temporary expectations because looking at l. tea's appeal outside of the new york market. You had to be realistic about it. Yes he was a bad ass football player. He was beloved in new york Bananas football player doesn't translate to the rest of the world this an american spy Yeah but i mean not was enough of a of a celebrity beyond that that we kinda hoped would but at the same time we all kinda had the right. This is going to be good for. This is going to get a lot of outside media in different eyeballs on us into that it did. Was it as big as we hoped. I don't think so as far as featuring the nfl we've certainly seen other opportunities where nfl players got involved and wwe but we haven't seen another nfl player. Headliner wrestlemainia do you think that could ever happen. Is there such a thing as make at this point feels like. Wb is such a global brand. Obviously what's part time. It was primarily north america. But that's a longer the case. And i just think i'll just wonder you know does football translate. Maybe the way basketball or soccer. Some of the other sports i- globally. I don't think it does. But however when you look at the united kingdom and what have you. Football's big deal over there. Yeah i think the rest of the world when the when you say football. They're talking soccer so it doesn't necessarily translate in less. It's a tom brady. Or you know. Peyton manning somebody like that peyton would mean shit right now but a tom brady will. Here's something worth discussing The rumor and innuendo from the observer at the time the idea was that after bigalow put over taylor they would have mutual respect. Bigalow was to turn baby.

"Guns are forced to vacate at noon to an injury. They defeat minnesota mission and the head drinkers to get to the finals. Which happened at the royal rumble ultimately. They're gonna lose their two one. Two three kid bob. Holly have plenty of time. Fifteen minutes and thirty two seconds Milton actually dug. He gave it three and three quarter stars. Of course the next night Kid and holly are going to lose the titles to the smoking guns because they're back in action but this is around the time when things start to really look up for bam bam not winning. The tax straps. No big deal. I got lawrence taylor. The rumor and innuendo from dave meltzer. Tom said the lawrence taylor angle with bam bam. Bigelow must have been great because many people who were calling after the show thought it was a shoot because of how vincent man sold it on monday night. They really played up as if it were a shoot with. Vincent apologizing for and announcing bigalow is being suspended without pay. Bring bigelow alfred apology. It was obviously an angle because it fit perfectly into the story line at the show with people laughing at bigelow for losing the kid they mentioned taylor being. They're giving a reason far too many times for them not to be running angle with him over. That means The get the giveaway live was that taylor was laughing about an afterwards and that the following night they made too many mentions of it if the man had done the apology and it would have been dropped and forgotten. That would have been one thing but the second time it was brought up. Made an obvious. They're doing japanese angle. Oh then it must've been great since the wbf has never done japan style angles. This will all look like a work because a lot of the people will be buying it so list an interesting. The way this thing is jean me. Talk to me about the creative of him you know sort of poking fun at bam bam and being part of the crowd and then it becomes a real. I mean that's a cool concept. Cool way to get a mainstream celebrity involved. It was played perfection. Lt's ariel t- loved to golf and lt you know was there to golf and people that knew l. t. in the sports role at all you know made perfect sense bam's out there having a match l. Having a good time throughout the night everybody's laughing l. in on it hey laughing at bam bam bam bam wants to be cool with him goes hey man just having fun. Hey man really good match bam takes exception to fuck you. Man in the heat of the moment and lt played it off perfectly firing back in all this shit because it was it was real. It was good. It was it was damn good angle. We got it from all the japanese Commentary that we went back and studied you. How the commentator sold all lab. The builder wrestlemainia is really unlike anything. We've ever seen it at the time. It's built around the million dollar corporation and all the nfl players lt is going to have at ringside house lt. To deal with. We'll see difficult. This easy deal put together. Hannity take the training and all that chasse absolutely fantastic top notch man Came and trained worked his ass off trained his ass off. Having respect for the business was an absolute natural getting in the ring and really worked hard changing and trained hard so I know we don't talk about current stuff but earlier this year people were bragging about how great bad bunny was and he took to wrestling and took it seriously center. Excetera would would not have been in that same category with somebody who just was really putting forth their best effort not just trying to coast on being a a a quote unquote mainstream star. Yeah anime again. You know it was here was a guy that was willing to do anything and everything and wanted didn't want to be embarrassed. Wanted to go out and buses. I asked him prove he could do something else. And this was looked at from l. Tease point of view. Something fun and another way to keep his name out there in the world. How involved was pat patterson and putting together their match at wrestlemania. Pat was in there every night with them and working with them bat. Was there every single workout and helped lay out that match. Just you know. Get everybody comfortable once a time. This was a bigger deal than it honestly became but was there ever any discussion with bam bam about what was happening. I mean it feels like it's a natural of orange taylor's winning. He just know that going in. Or is that a serious discussion. That had to happen now like everybody knew that. Going in so the wrestlemainia press conference the only the only people that it's a big deal to win and lose people that aren't in the business for the most part way nobody's ever came to you and argued about a finnish. Some people have. Yeah but for other reasons. Other than i don't wanna lose. Yeah like oh my god. Losing such a bad thing a lot of times it comes back to. What's the phrase we hear Where do we go from there or something like that right. Yeah which is a fair question. Sure so what do the royalty press conference in new york for wrestlemainia and lt accepts. Bigalow challenge quote anytime anyplace There's a public workout at times square. We've talked about the are cast with the diesel episodes. But really it's just a huge gathering that heels lt in bam turned into a gigantic brawl which is just a great visual. You guys of course would recreate the sort of public workout media. Chaos from prescott. Swear and did a did a public workout it noon in times square in front of that little ticket office and shit set up a ring. Shut it down. Had our our buses for dressing rooms across the street It was an ungodly Spectacle it was it was brutal and it was so damn good but everybody was there for several reasons. One that we shut down times square and the we had this hoopla and this just mass chaos in the middle of new york city Middle a lunch for everybody inches. Traffic jams everywhere..

"He said oh perfect. Looney was sean is put with alot. Of course she had the best head. That years we know is that pairing simply because of their heads. Great head. great head. The f. edgy mine. Sai- so it's for trade is luna being portrayed as luna being his main squeeze but it's never really gone into that they're attached to romantically like you don't see some of the on camera sparks that you would in other situations like this but he does refer to as his main squeeze. He taught me through the like squeeze each other. This is fun. You're not my big squeeze. I appreciate that medium. Squeeze bam bam bigelow first singles match main on paper though He's our mexican squeeze catering against bret. Hart we covered the archives. But still when he gets to go on top with brett here. That's kind of a big deal and a vote of confidence now that we're out of the quote unquote hall hogan era and we're in the bread hard era one of the first guys who's going to work with bam bam bigelow pretty cool little I think it is but it was also a testament to no matter. What with the exception of times that he was hurt. I don't know that bam bam's work in the rain was anything that anyone ever really complained about. Not i think the bam bam was always A great worker was able to deliver in the rain. Bam bam to talk are matched up after king of the ring and it leads to sherri martel to talk coming together against luna and bigalow and bam bam is actually a part of series. Last wwf appearance in wilkes barre pennsylvania when luna and bigalow are going to attack sherry but the talk makes the save. We've covered that in the archives but was it important to sheree to sort of help. Put the rub on luna on her way out here. That -solutely in sharing was probably one of the most unselfish talents. You'd ever run into sherry loved to get other people over uwe. You told us a little bit earlier. There was never really a question about bam bam's in ring work. Well on the heels of this is going to start putting over to taco on most of the shows because the taka doing an undefeated streak but we just read earlier that perhaps he had an attitude has first. Wf run. does he have any issues putting over to talk on the house show loops here. No he didn't have to be disgusted about it. Why it's like. Oh my god. In couple of cities in japan he was come on china about the rest of the world versus an isolated area. When it wasn't about that it was that perhaps he got treated like a star with their came back with case of the big head. That's the way i ran it. Okay it's announced that some are ninety three that Bigalow the best head. He's a big hit. He did have the best head. Swelled documented is gonna team with ahead drinkers to face the talk in the smoking guns. The mass gets two and three quarter stars ago. Eleven minutes and fifteen seconds Yeah losing effort here next up big loss kind of floating around the mid card. But unfortunately it's about to get worse. I was going to transition to a feud with knowing what will lead to one of the all time classic awful matches at survivor series. But before we get there don't versus bigalow. Who had more fun with this. You events well. I didn't have fun with this. I had fun with matt osborne. Doing and You know bam bam didn't like matt for whatever reason an in matt was battling his demons at that time to the point that we had to let go and it was right in the middle of this you know whole bam bam angle and obama. Says i've got a guy. I've got a guy that you put them in the doing suit goint You'll never know the difference. And he's a better worker matt born and it was his friend. His name i think was ray apollo And ray super guy just did not have the innate charisma matt borne by any stretch of the imagination. the more we tried this we brought dink in Who was tiger jackson for montreal to be as side kick Everything we tried it. Just it wasn't you know. Matt born may deutsche. Bank matt born is join. Ke- was hot. Young people laugh but but when they talk about the the shitty joint is. This is the era of the shitty. It wasn't mad and to me. it wasn't doing. It was the replacement drink. And i don't think that he was half the talent or matt born and had you had matt born in the same situation people be talking about holy shit. This was insane well. Survivor series bruce. The last paper of you in the boston garden. It's promoted as bigalow the head shrinkers and bastion booger against four door links. And the four doing our men on a mission and the bush-whackers that's right. The ford winks turned out to be minimum mission and bush-whackers. And even they beat bam bam bigelow bashing bugger hands airwave. Just come all bruce. Come home bruce. Come home berms. Come on bruce come home brings used to come to. Our shows often have oscar. Do little rapin introduced me. Domino live shows. When i was in.

"Yeah so is a range deal yes. She didn't have a choice in the matter. If you read the the internet right so he he made her was there. Any money exchanged. Well that's on the internet. The internet is like a couple of your first second or third fourth. Warn you can have the third. One was a collateral for rick new mortgage so oh make sense because your mortgage i got twenty five years left and then she's off so bam bam's on tv winning squashes in pretty impressive fashion. He's got a slingshot splash and he's on the road to winning. Lots of battle royals is ring attire. Though the flames boy who came up with that i mean that presented him as a major star. A not the vince looking as gear just thinking. It was playing in doll. And its you have fire on his headless but fire on his body to fantastic. It's been said that bigelow was actually brought in to be hulk hogan under study and tag team partner maybe to help hawkin reducing some of the work on the road and maybe even give. Bigelow the rub. Do you remember that ever being discussed. We're looking as at bam bam being being a top baby face so you know anytime you're looking at bringing in about top baby face with hulk it is do compliment. That indoor replaces some point. I think that's what we're looking at at bam bam for to come in and be a star was you. It'll make his Pay per view. Debut on hawks team at the survivor series. Check out this team hall. Cogan don morocco. Ken patera and paul orndorff all taming with bam bam bigelow where's that a wendy's commercial. Where's the beef. It's all on that side of the ring They're gonna wind up taking on the heenan family. Which is andre the giant king. Kong bundy butch reed one man gang and rick rude. Never there's the other half of the beef lord. This really is the land of the giants. What about that team. Man don morocco. Ken patera paul orndorff hulk hogan and bam bam bigelow. Well you said it right when you said the beef and that was you know. Of course the famous hogan must pose. Yeah bam bam got the win but well. This wasn't the. Yeah but you know what. I mean either way though. He's the last baby face. Standing after hogan is counted out. He's gonna pin bundy in one man gang and then he gets pinball andrei andre in like bam bam really tell me about that go back and watch some of the fucking matches you watch. Andre grabbed him by the top of his. You know is is is his garment. Is paul bosch. Used to say when tarzan well. He's very the over the shoulder garment Obama audrey would just reach out because he didn't have any heritable so he would grab him by his top shirt gear. Inches yank him in throw him around in in. Andre treated him like a rag doll not a fan of bam bam at all lure fire head wa wa though like big guys that he felt bam bam had a bit of an attitude coming in and the he was a young guy that hadn't really earned his stripes and honore's is just didn't like him on you know what we said four or five hundred pounds and they referred to as the boss. You don't have to have a reason for pretty much anything you do. Well fair enough. What about confidence. It is when hogan goes down bam bam the last baby face. I mean i know is gonna win but still. That's pretty big damn deal. Yeah sure is that was you know. Kind of a what we we're trying to portray is the this guy's a player so he gets a big win over hercules on saturday nights main event november twenty eighth nineteen eighty seven. Are you having any sort of communication with him this he. How's he doing. How's he holding up to the pressure. I only mention that. Because now he's a big tv star. He's got a little bit of notoriety. He's probably making more money than ever hasn't his life and he's relatively young man but a big man making towns all over the country Is this Too much too soon. How's he handling this personally. I think he handled it. All right I think there were there. Were times that it may have been a little overwhelming but for the most part i think he handled it as well as he could have it. It is a age. you know. He's he's like a year older than i am and it was a kind of relate to it on a different level of a whole lot. Really fast somebody you say is like you know. Drink water out on firehose It was a lot. But i think for the most part that scott handled as well as he could it. The time there were moments definitely moments where he just didn't understand. I don't i don't think he ever understood why andre didn't like him so i'm just wondering from a Sex drugs and rock and roll standpoint. He's keeping it between the ditches pretty much yeah In your in your opinion in hindsight was it. The right move to stardom as baby face in transitioning. He'll or do you think he could've may be capitalized on some of that. Nineteen eighty seven hogan ruin expanding across the ring from him rather than shoulder to shoulder. I think that when you're looking at that stable of heels at the time that it was the only thing to do with him yeah it was on the other. Yeah on the on the other side. You had a pretty stout fucking lineup. Issue did well. In nineteen eighty-seven he wins a slimy One of the first years. You guys did that. And of course this is the first show that you produce for the w. f. o. Thank where you were like had your rains on the thing you guys have an award called best head of course bam bam one that or who had been her head than him..

"Come on dude. It sounds like brian. It's like if it was. Billy wack me off was on you. Don't really see is a hell of hand net seghal something russell with bill. Yak me off. So listen we're going to talk about something that is really data here but bam bam even wins rookie of the year. Just the one. As far as i know my brother. Tom won rookie of the year. I think three times three years in a row. Wow that's impressive those guy. He used to wrestle at w. wild side will him sour naro and he's still with nwea. Anyway i saw him years ago as the two-time rookie of the year thought. It was the fucking coolest gimmick ever in here your brother had was. He promoting himself as a three-time rookie of the year. No no it's just every territory. He went to this young rookie. Tommy pritchard as cowboy. Tommy richard out in california because everybody comes from texas got a cowboy and when he got there they said hey you got you got hats chaps ligament just everybody game texas always carried a hat and chaps in their in their bag. Let me get one yellow or blue What the fuck. But yeah tom. Everywhere he'd go y'all jong and so they'd make you ma this young rookie. They'd have their own local rookie of the year. Do you know the beat him. Al rookie of the year in pwi and his actual real rookie. Year okay terry. Tenant was rookie of the year. And tom was runner up. You've bus tom's balls about that. No because he was a three time. Rookie of the year cockatiel guy was only once it's not enough to Get booked over in new japan pro wrestling in january of eighty seven. So just to recap the is like sixteen months in the business and already booked by new japan. That's a pretty big damn deal. Is it because they had so much success with the other american wrestlers because of his size. What's not at a fetish for the big guys to to bring in bring in a big nasty looking. He'll for not to be so. Yeah like not like that. That style that type of Of talent well. He's only there for like four or five months before. He debuts with the world wrestling federation may twenty six nineteen ninety seven in asbury park new jersey and He's gonna debut in his home state and in the town that he's announced from his whole career. Pretty cool little deal. Do you remember his first match or or him coming in or that all came to be. Yeah i i remember. He came in in was very bland warlike black short shorts and then the top the he wore pretty much for for his career almost like a butcher top but cut a little bit more of his body and For be as big as he was and from the neck up is full as he was. it didn't match. You know it was. It was very bland kind of blah in it will blah enough to almost take away his uniqueness because then he just became a heavy dude that happened to be bald with a tattoo on his head was nothing special about him. That made him stand out and So then you know we looked at okay. What what can we do to color him up and to make him stand out in a in a land of giants he was a big guy but he's a big guy that has extraordinary talents in could do an awful lot for a big man thing down. Hello yes we're talking about your ding.

"You know how do you differentiate heard. We've heard the advice of of quote unquote veterans a lot in wrestling. Who would say. Oh he's doing all this stupid shit. It just needs to be a big man just giant wrestle giant giant but then you see a golic. This breakout all kinds of crazy stuff and fans seemed to really dig it. What's up with that. Where's the line where this guy should. But that gosh it. And i think it depends on ability is whether or not they can do it when you see a big guy do it. All the time it becomes commonplace doesn't matter it's not special right if they break out every now and then in makes it unique and it makes you a wall if you do an amazing maneuver over and over and over again you get used to and becomes a spot instead of spectacle. Well it is a spectacle to see bam bam bigelow. He's gonna make his way down to memphis and the cw is going to be pushed. Pretty high up the card and even worker program with jerry lawler and that's actually the first time or the first thing of his i've seen is like a highlight tape. They made down by played on tv. That was really pretty cool especially for the time. Did you see any of his memphis stuff at all. Probably saw little bit of it but not not enough to really really matter. I guess more than anything. I probably saw little bit of it again for some are really saw. Much of his stuff was was out of dallas Do you know the whole story on how he got the flames on his head. Because that's obviously the thing that people still remember the most but you. I've never talked about how we're win. That came about soon. It probably would have come up at some point.

"And with that Ah Bigelow to you, Eric Highland and Yeah, obviously, it's been a big week, right years only happens every 4 to 8 years that we have Ah, New President so Now at least we've got some clarity. The best part about the election. Being over is all the noxious ads and mailers and you know all that stuff's gone thankfully. And so, yeah, we've been talking about before this year, and one of the big big ones was to do some really look at maybe should look at doing rock conversions. And so we wouldn't run those numbers for lots of people and really helping people out because No taxes are historically low. And we knew with the trump tax laws. They're going away at the end of 2025. Well, now, typically, every time you get a new president, there is a new tax law right and usually takes them a year to get it kicked in. That's what happened to trump right? It was 2017. You know, he worked on it. But 2018 was when it actually came into a loss. So my guess would be the same thing here that will have a new tax law in 2022. So that means you got this year and next year to make some tax changes. And then after that, it's gonna be you know a new board game, right? Yeah. You're you're trying to play the same one. But they just now rearrange some of the pieces and some of the squares that you're landing on. So Now you gotta figure out okay. What's the new rules of the game? So, Yeah, This is the time to really be thinking about your financial picture. I always like to really emphasize the people that tax planning has to be done. In the year in which it happens. So in other words, if you want to do anything planning wise around 2020, it has to be done before 12 31. If you want to do tax reporting, that's what you do in February 2 April next year to turn into a tax return. There's nothing pretty much you could do with taxes at that point, so Yeah. Super critical time. Lot of the other things, too. That's going to go away is this CRD, which is the covert or Corona virus related distribution? Where, if you need to take money out of your retirement plans you can take up to $100,000. If you've been affected, in effect is a weird term right? Because what's the fact it's Iris. Try to put out some pretty much good guidelines on that, and Most people could almost be counted as that Some people may not. So that's something that goes away at January 1st also so that's why these things that you know if you do need some money to pay off some bills, or if you just want to take some money out, and maybe you want to buy something different than that's in your 41 K today and you're under 59 a half year for one. Kate doesn't allow it. This is one of the coolest little tricks you can do is now you can actually take money out of your 41 K and reposition it to something That's you know, maybe guaranteed or something steady income. There's a lot of different options. There's some specialty things that are very unique to 2020 only so this is the time to take some time for yourself and not just only think about turkey and presents and all that stuff, but really focus on getting some stuff done. So what we do know is that the Iris released this annual adjustment for the 2021 tax year and these numbers or what? We're going to be used for the 2021 tax returns that would make it in 2022. How can that help us with our tax planning right now, Eric, or can it Well, most everything didn't change for for next year. So what we're talking about is you know what's the max? The 19 5 for? You know, if you're under 50 and 26,000 total, If you're 15 up several years ago, there was the they changed the rules to saying These all index with inflation, but they only change when it's a $500 change. So in other words at me if it goes up 50 bucks, they don't have all these goofy little weird numbers s O I raise of the same 6000 and seven thousands of six a few 115 7 if you're above and so, yes, So really, What you want do is make sure expression on the raw side of things If you're eligible to do a Roth You want to fill that thing up? I mean, you really want to get some money in there because all you have to do is look at how insane the U S national debts gone. I mean, just just in the last three years, it's kind of seven trillion from 20 to 27 Trillion. I mean, that is over 30% increase in just three years. And that is scary. Because how do you pay that money back? No, only one way to really right and get more income. And the only way the government's money really is taxes. We pay way bad, so s so that that that that tax effect is coming, and so Yeah. I mean, I think that's one of those things that you're not really look at. Also again, you know, Roth conversions If you're saved 10,000 more before the next bracket. Well, maybe just do that $10,000 conversion. I mean, I'm not saying you have to do a $50,000 conversions that cost you a fortune in tax. But you if you had 20 or 30,000 to the next practice, and you might want to do more also, But again, you got bills before to pay the taxes. So but why you paid today? Well, you know, if you have that money, sit their tax free and grow from next 10 2030 40 years. Yeah, that's way worth it. So really, what I find is if you're trying to figure this out on your own is really, really tough. And so one of the things that we've done here and had quit financials. We actually created a process called the blueprint to worry, less wealth. And what we do is we go over the five key areas, and it's the first and foremost the income plan. Hopefully got one. But even if you don't have one, we'll show you. What plan you have. Because everybody has these plans. Whether not they've written them down or even know about him. Yeah, you do. You are headed somewhere, and so we'll just tell you which way you're headed. Then also look at the investments but investment risk to have how those investments doing. Look at the tax is obviously tax is a huge, huge, huge right down, saying Look at the health care issues along the way and then Legacy issues who's gonna get your stuff when you're gone, so What we do is instead of just going right into that process makes you set up a 15 30 minute phone call to see what kind of concerns you have. What kind of worries you have and how we could help And so you know, that's something you want to take advantage of. We're not doing any charge for this or the blue print right now. So Great deal because it's free on so all you gotta do is get us call 804 54 11 84 again. 804 54 11 84 Oregon Book directly online that wealth creator radio com So we know like you said, Taxes are still at an all time low. They're not going to stay that way forever, right? So how could we make sure that we're taking advantage of current tax planning opportunities? Maybe before they go away, Eric?.

Becky Grossman is running in that fourth congressional district. She is in the final stretch as they all are. She's in her town or she's in the city of Newton today over the Bigelow Middle School polling station Sherry Small caught up with her Democrat Becky Grossman, running in a crowded field of seven Democrats in two Republicans trying to win their party's primary for the fourth Congressional District race.

Five current members of Congress only 25 are mothers of school age Children.

Introducing the Movie Director Game with Sam Esmail
"We have a special sort of conversation. Here we're joined by Mister Robot. Creator the Creator of the film comet The director of Amazon's homecoming. Yes Sam. Esmail saying what's up. Hello how are you? I'm so excited to be here. I'm such a fan. Oh that's very sam. You wanted to play a game with us. I did now. I want to know why you wanted to play that game with us and I also want you to explain the game. Well explaining it okay. I'll let me start by saying I'm a huge film. Learn as I think anybody who listens to the watch probably already gust. And I've always played this game with all my film nerd fans and so I figured one when I started listening to your podcasts. Which obsessed with a huge fan of I figured especially with Amanda Sort of counterpoint? To talk to your thinking Shawn's like I just thought this'll be a fun game to play the game. Basically and again. This is sorry for listeners. Who are not going to be in on this because it's so inside. It's not even that insight. It's but it's it's really not OK okay. I won't apologize here. We go is a good game in and you deserve it. It's the best director per decade and the best director who die who had their debut. That decade does that make sense. Did I explain this? Should we use an example to help people understand it? What's an example that we won't? Won't you trample on the choices that we've made here? Well we look at this decade. We had we had like a number of actually great film. Directors made their debut Jordan. Peele with get ou- Greta Gerwig with Lady Bird Vince Gilligan Man. This favorite with El Camino until nineteen many wonderful. Thanks well actually. Gertler made no thanks. But it's it's it's it's it's. It's good to bring up Vince. As an example because he actually that was his feature directing debut which is all coming up. Now the thing is it's not necessarily not saying what's the best directorial debut? Just the director that we appreciate. The most made that debut made their debut in that decade so I think that there's a couple of semantic complications around now and you know as well as I do that there are student films. Their short film features so. Let's lay the groundwork. Because Vince directed episodes of Britain. He directed the pilot breaking bug which I think was in the prior decade but we're talking feature directorial debut so that seems easy to Parse. It's not as easy to Parse as it seems. Now tell me why well. Are you talking about dual are GonNa be Spielberg is is a particularly complex example? Because of nine or you're talking about nine gallery 'cause that's TV while he made a movie when he was seventeen called firelight for five hundred bucks and is that a film. Is that a feature film even his parents saw. I wouldn't say a featured like a debut meaning. It was released in movie theaters got it. Okay commercially available. Commercially available attack. Those are good ground rules. I'm glad that we established that play into my less later on. I do consider to be because it didn't get released in theaters. Well it is a feature film but it was not this little guy but that is considering his feature debut his first full length movie right what. What's the movie after that? Then Land Express okay all right so yes we'll stick to that okay before we play the game now. The people understand the game I want but just add one other thing the interesting thing about this game and I think will when we go through. We'll see it's where the decades are hard because there's just so many amazing options and where the decades are not A. There's not a lot of options. I just find the conversation around that to be interesting because lanes a little bit about where movies are and where they're doing exactly specifically the nineties which I thought was just a burst of like creative inspirational film makers and then the very decade after the ONS which I struggled I struggled to find. I have some counterpoint to that point but I I wanna use this as an opportunity to pick a bone with you. Oh Wow okay I resent you. I resent your your appearance on this podcast because what I what we need. What this podcast needs is people like you making movies and television shows will but you love movies and you film in a very discreet way. Yes but and I mean I guess we're going to get into it right now. It's gotTa think about think about indie filmmakers. What happened let's say Ryan Kugler? Who Loved Fruitvale? Right mazing what happened to him. After he made fruitvale he went into the machine he went into the machine. And that's what's happening with a lot of these other directors and that. That's the difference between the nineties and now so I think. Pta came out with holiday today. Is he making you know Batman in two years and by the way no not dissing on Batman? I'm excited for When Matt Raises Version of it? Because I'm a fan of his but I think it's just the industry is dictating a lot of what directors are doing now and you know and not to 'em this point that's the machine that we're in right now so and that's more reflective of the decade so t to to get to my TV point. Tv's where you get to make the interesting shit. I don't know if I could have made mister robot as a feature in fact I tried well. That was my fault. Got a little long winded. With how long was that? That forty five. Our film now That feature from I wrote ninety pages of wasn't even into act tune. That's when I realized I was in trouble. Was there a divergent path for you where after comet you could have just doubled down and said I'll stay. I'll continue to stay kind of broke but I'll keep making movies will. Yeah I mean that was the plan I was going to make Mr Buzzing indie feature and got stuck with it and Steve Golan Who You know owns anonymous content who Read the pages of Missouri Button at the time detective had just come out and he just He had just produced. That and I thought women that will this is fucking coal. And I don't need to do anything with this. I don't need to refashion the script that I had in mind and fitted into this to our box and honestly I was just really more. I remember thinking I was way more excited about true detective than I was about anything. Elsa came out there. Trust them into. What are your thoughts on true detective because I have no idea? I don't love thank you. Yeah I think I think I see yes. The first season I think true detective on its face is like a accomplished piece of television filmmaking and also I'm a huge fan of cary Fukunaga always and forever Perhaps not for the same reasons. Assess it to me actually wrap. It was such a turning point. Anything his best thing that he's done. I'm not even going to say Jane Eyre Okay. I haven't I haven't seen that I haven't seen the new Bond movie I but I'm really looking forward to it because I'm also a bond person and also I just you know I think true true detective as this carries best thing. I think that's probably true but my issue with detective is not actually true detective itself. It is the dialogue around your detective. And also I think that's a pivot point in terms of when and how we started evaluating TV in terms of tracking shots and the actual just the athletic like filmmaking as a way to bring the an experience. What is this athletic yet? Flex now and then on twitter people are now saying slaps what what is all? I don't understand that you want to explain the Internet. Let's start with the athletic because Amanda I. I've heard you use a lot and I've I've been on a lot of sets of never heard anyone say the words. I think the first person he was at my friend on the TV critic Philip asking and I think it puts its finger on this idea of money that you bring her up because she wrote this she wrote. It was a harsh. I mean whatever I respect her reviews she dissed my one episode of Mister Robot whereas all one tracking shot. I assume yes is what you mean by athletic because I do think that Filmmaking and TV and everything is more than cameras and more than where the camera is and there is such a absolutely station online. The damore as more aspect of filmmaking and I think that the tracking shot is caption of that and just like. Oh Wow. Did you see what he did. That was so cool. Oh my God. The camera is moving. You know don't you think it but don't you think has a to me every every sort of choice that you make with the camera has an effect and yes to some extent it it takes you out of it and draws attention to itself but to some extent. I really I mean what do you think of the Copacabana Sean? And I and I and I do. Actually I think even tracking protective is effective. But you know we're doing a podcast right now. That isn't essentially about how we talk about. Film and like establishing a Canon of source. And the cannon is so reliant on where do we put the camera and what did they itch on showing us an either. Don't respond to that artistically at some point. I'm just like Yay like fancy camera. Shots you got it. Congratulations to you but I do also think it distracts from the other equally important. I feel making that. Don't get enough credit. I think code is also a specifically athletic is code for Masculinity. You know it's code for this sort of The might of the male filmmaker. Now that's not always true if you watch like strange days for example. Kathryn bigelow is doing a lot with the camera yet. It is unorthodox and cool and might have what would otherwise be deemed kind of masculine energy. But I do think that true detective and largely the dialogue like you're saying was about a lot of dudes being like Yo. This is sick now. Personally I thought it was sick. Oh okay but I I would. I was not a fan of those scripts and I don't think that story is very strong but I thought that was really well
Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
In Pakistan, the merciless assassin: The blasphemy law
"This is the first Christmas that I see a B. B. will celebrate as a free woman I see a a Christian spent nearly ten years in jail in Pakistan after being sentenced to death for allegedly committing blasphemy during an argument as she did farm work out in the field she was eventually released only earlier this year meanwhile the country's blasphemy laws remain in place and last weekend a prominent Muslim university lecturer Junaid have fees was sentenced to death for having allegedly insulted the prophet Muhammad on social media human rights groups say the blasphemy allegations are often used impacts on as a way of setting settling personal feud soul targeting minority groups in the country from Pakistan a correspondence conduct money has this report Hey how much Bob your two was marred by the hand soon musty says his press conference of a handful of posters and calendars depicting Jesus and his disciples to make up the only decoration in the small rural home he'd almost completely lost hope that his daughter on the beach with ever be released Bigelow's up all of that I have but the summer of two close to a decade on death row she was flown out of the country they're they're gonna what are the what are they ever did on Sunday her father wasn't able to meet her they did manage to speak once when a relative's phone John was very but you because you eat I was so happy I saw her face and she held her hands up in front of me and said father forgive me and made everyone you can go in America it's hard then I started crying and I said well my doctor may god protect you because these are the the retooling because on our will on us here BB her husband and her children now live abroad but the rest of her family still in Pakistan they had to leave the village when I see a B. B. was first accused of blasphemy and only saw her once many years ago when she was in jail they know that are likely to ever be able to be to gain that too poor to even afford a mobile phone to call her yeah I did they cut a deal with in a while it with a mind you doing this for you miss everyone you must feel the same idea this is what happens look at that bird if accrued ID's the rest of them get together and make a noise we all have memories the verdict in Aussie BB's case was welcomed around the world the buckets dogs hardline blasphemy does remain in place the release of all SUB B.

"A lot of that information is also based off of like your work for the work of Bigelow throughout the years I feel that people really don't understand that back ground of this government program right we're going to cover some of it in the next segment we're talking with Alessandro row house of open mind says Linda Ronstadt covering the Everly brothers takes us into the break get a new view of the world with coast to coast AM do you still think too that the way things are going that the global elite still want to dominate the planet and that they might succeed well I think they did dominate the planet for a long time until seventeen seventy six because the founding fathers decided to form a new form of government one that was based on laws that were eternal fest right people have their own alienable for the Cup all of the people that have ruled the earth cool they didn't like that so for two hundred forty two years they could try to get it back and we America has resisted and that the fight if we see going on right now doesn't still feel out of kilter golf to you there's something wrong there's a grand a force out there that need not just one they need to capture the soul of the world but I don't think they're going to win I don't think they're going to win this and this is another one of time steps Hey I'm all about using unusual items.

"Bigelow a very interesting group of people and eight you've got high level I got a kick green you cannot help but up you've got Eric Davis you back on Keller you've got thank you Mitchell asked not and and number of other people all very interesting all interested in UFOs and what is obvious is that they all talk to each thirty clearances to varying extents and so you know it's clear that whenever talk about this they would have to be careful about what they said into home and so forth but clearly what you see is a group of people trying to work their way through the labyrinth and trying to get to the center of this mystery because they're very interested in it and so in two thousand two it gave us get an opportunity to talk to Wilson and when he does he sits with them and seems like a little more than an hour and writes a very thorough transcript of their conversation not verbatim but it's is detailed notes and that is what I was shown two or three pages out back in oh six as a result of that I contacted as anyone that I could including Wilson including occur Mitchell including Steven Greer and that confirmation from all of them about the meeting and when I spoke at real Wilson that was the one time in my life that I actually didn't ambush interview on someone I felt a little bad about it but I didn't think he would be willing to talk to me I called ahead and said yeah I want to ask about that you left the meeting at eight ninety I hope so like I I found them down on the phone he was very very Gina let me ask her when he thought I was just that ordinary historian looking at the US navy right very quickly no Sir I'm actually calling about this UFO meaning you had and you know initially just the night altogether no memory of such a thing and I made a very clear and that multiple confirmations including doctor Mitchell including from other people and he admitted that the meeting happened and then just said everything after that is poppycock with where he used to describe it anyway as years went by I knew that this had happened I knew this was important but I didn't have the documents prove it I didn't and I've never ever going to throw any of these people under the bus who had given me any information I just sat on a talk about it from time to time Julianne America back together a very excellent annotated list the comprehensive links of all think about this the Wilson leak over the years and I'm I'm in there many times and his career as is the number of other people great Cameron then Mitchell died a couple of years ago and his papers you know I I know something about how this happened I don't know every detail but I do know that a significant portion of his personal papers merrily relating to UFOs and it's my understanding have been preserved they are in the project they are legally preserve date person you got it so legally and.

"You know well and the other the other thing too is that when those the key the key so the pood- off experiments the poodle target experiments are interesting because they are the ones that showed a significant ignificant not really a significant but a higher it showed statistically looked like percent or something like that higher of accuracy than just just guessing right but then when you removed the methodological flaws that created cues in the mind of the judge so in other words no your brain is constantly constantly picking up on cues whether or not you think you are and there are some really great youtube videos on this one. One of my favorites is it's people throwing a red ball around the room and it says you know look look at the red ball and at the end of the video. It'll ask you like. How many times was the ball passed between Pino people in the room but then at the end of the video would actually asks well? How how many times did a T. REX walk into frame? And you're like none no none time. Cat Wrecks and then they're like well actually it was three and when they go back through the video. There's a guy in a T.. Rex Costume walking across the frame. Three times vary obviously in the middle of the video. But because your brain is looking for something else it's tricked into not and there's people that have made livings doing this. The amazing Kweskin and things like that that are so in tuned with picking up on On Jaren Brown. Darren Brown is A. It's it's cold reading mental is they they they they can do that in they can make you not see what they don't you see but they can also up on subtle cues and things like that. They're not magic they're just really really adept at being focused and and things the other important they can do and it's important for this case is that they can make you pick a certain answer sir out of a pool of answers they can cause you to pick a pool of answers right so there's a famous one again. Darren Brown for those. That don't think this is possible. Go Watch and stuff. He's amazing he has a very famous case where he's sitting in a room with Simon Pegg and he's got a Christmas present in front of it and he's like okay. Simon want you to think about what you want for Christmas but first let's let's talk a little bit so I can try to guess what you're going to want. And then afterwards Simon Pegg silent. What do you want and he goes? Why WanNa read? BMX Bike Mike. And of course. That's what's in the box. But the reason that Simon picked red. BMX BIKE is. Because Darren is giving him cues while they're talking Eh but it is so subtle that he doesn't realize exactly he's mentioning things that are red and he's mentioning bicycles and writing and the these other things and it's even more subtle than that you know. There's there's one that does where it spells out BMX. But you never would have picked it up you know so anyways is there are ways to do this. And it's part of the challenge of studying these things scientifically that you need to be careful of that methodological flaw and it turns out that if you remove those cues from the put off targe papers are their test results. It goes back to random chance. Well if you really want I want to understand how to do this. You don't WanNa go down the mental EST Avenue and you don't want to go down the scientology avenue all you gotTa do is hop on John. John Vivanco site. He teaches classes on remote. Viewing awaken empowered expo. There and meet them. He's GonNa teach you how to remote view for a nominal family you know and you don't have to worry about if it's real or not it's still real to me damn it. It's all of course so good. You know it's funny. The actually is I remember when I was a kid There were these websites where you could actually test your psychic abilities. And the way in this was actually part of this It was a study or as a type of study that the parapsychology community has done for a long time. which is you have Iran Randall? True random number generator and the person doing the psychic task tries to four certain values to come out and so you're trying to force forced like you know what I want. I want four out of ten to come up more often than everything else. And so then at the end of the session then they test and see if that actually worked or not and it's kind of an issue into there was a website where you can do this but anyways the reason that all this is then connected to say to the academy is because put off their head of scientific research among names with them right and the funny. The funny thing is that you know he's kind of using. I've never met him. I'm sure I've heard he's a very nice guy I'm sure he's he's juries nice. You know. I'm sure he had I'm sure that something you know. One thing in our series right now on bigalow that we're trying to make clear is that we're not we're not trying to smear anybody you know. We're not trying to be Dick's like that's never are just in his past and This is just the facts right exactly so you know it's it's you know I had I had people are we've had people come out and say well you know wouldn't you think it. It was improper. If you were talking about say someone who was you know. Jewish or something. Right isn't scientologist another religion and so it should have no bearing bearing on the science but the argument is made back is well. That's a ridiculous argument. If he was a young Earth creationist claiming that he's found geological proved proof that the earth is six thousand years old. That would that would be an important part of the story right now. He's not just some scientist he's younger creationist. And that would be an important the piece of information you'd want also. I would hope that he would make that evidence searchable and can investigate gate to prove if it is true or not. And that's the and that's the other part of this that people never talk about. Is that their studies and their methods have never been really put out there you know. They've published but when they publish them people even the reviewers comments are available Through the editorial that was published in nature when they published this result in the first place that you know they said the results are the methods. Are you know kind of difficult to pin down. And the the way that we can pin them down right now it makes makes it look like there's serious flaws in this method when those methods have been given out to other researchers they've been discussed as being again again seriously flawed. So it's you know it's not like this stuff hasn't been looked at by the community Even within the parapsychology community. It's so I don't know to me. It seems like A. There's a very strong continue if people who want to the Stars Academy to be true And so they are pushing thing for them anything that comes out against the credibility academy they turn into just you know. We'll that's either a bad faith argument or I can't even stronger anytime. There's a company out there that you're investigating you're trading. They need accountability. That's why large companies have have the Sarbanes Oxley Act and things like that so we can see exactly what they're doing monetarily new hope that if something is a technology company or whatever you WANNA call it an entertainment AMO company that dabbles in technology It's definitely not a UFO research company. Which I think a lot of people put their money into it because of that because now we know that Tom Longest I said that in the last week or so that they are not a you know the company to study extraterrestrials? It's an important thing. I think. A visibility accountability. You know we want everything to be transparent but when you push on questions with companies like this people get very upset and I you know I. It's one of those things where I've said in the past. I have a lot of issues I think with things that are that. TSA HAS BEEN DOING I. I hope I'm wrong. I really do. I would love for it all to be exactly what they're saying. There's been a lot of red flags that have been raised for me. And that's one of the reasons I wanted to talk Robert Bigelow because he's one of the the names associated someone even talking about and as it goes hand in hand hand with the not wanting to really handover evidence. And your your research that they've done that kind of goes back to the all the different things that went on with skin Walker ranch and things we've talked about in the past so Chris. Let's let's run the break real quick when we come back we talk bigalow skin Walker Walker and how this all ties together. Nice is next on hysteria. Fifty one.
Geena Davis, David Lynch, more to receive honorary Oscars
"We're already talking Oscars of the governor's awards have announced the recipients this year. Now, the governor award, the honorary Oscars remember those away from the telecast, and to a separate ceremony that happens later in the year this year's recipients include Gena Davis. David Lynch actor, Wes, Studi and director, Lena were muehler. So. Well, it's like, gene her shots award like Angelina got that. It's like a humanitarian okay, let's Gena Davis giving it for. She's getting it for women the women stuff. That's right. Gina davis. Not only did she win an Oscar for the accidental tourist back in the eighties for her acting but Gina Davis is the founder and chair of the genus date. Gena Davis institute on gender in media. Her nonprofit that pushes companies to create a wired variety of female characters in programming and movie. A long time ago before before me to before everything. She'll really good for her. Yeah. She's super passionate. A word didn't she make a Nazi propaganda films. No, Lenny re. She is no longer in this, this woman. She became the first woman to receive an Oscar nomination for directing back in nineteen seventy six that film, seven beauties and to this day, only five women have been nominated for the Oscar for best directing one woman, winning the prize. That was Kathryn Bigelow. Yeah. That, that was such a good movie. But that is number believably mad that is unbelievably bad. Remember, Barbara Streisand has been nominated one of the women for best director this. We have that to look forward to the governor's awards. We'll be happening October. Twenty seventh they are not televised. But usually we'll get an ice clip real during
