Fresh update on "billie" discussed on How I Found My Voice
"I want to ask about your voice because it's so distinctive. And i was just thinking. It's this amazing set of factors. There's your accent the way you wrap yourself around different. Sounds it so fully formed. Did he just emerge by itself when you first recording. Now i think fencing by accident. I loved it. Is this hope. As i said i was like fourteen in that band and then at school i did. A few comes and i never had a very strong voice. My performance can be full. My singing i started out in capital bay and somebody saw me once before me. It's a cadre was amazing. And then i saw at the end of my cap way. Bela how'd you feel about like soon as written poetry episodes and i started to try a bit and i guess when you listen to my first album i think keep can hit that synon- train voice is very thin compared to what it is now and i really genuinely believe. I didn't think the is going to be a sale as good enough. So i started. Say lease mutt voice. When i went until quite often. And i would do these gigs. Where i would have to write down while wanted to say and my band lead to out a nightside. My voice singing and it was quite uncomfortable. Say people tickets. It was like. I wouldn't cancel and then i started to really work in. I felt guilty. And i felt indebted to the ticket Starts do lessons. And i spent lots of time hiding in and then through experience to practice plus the lessons which were happening in front of the public is like learning absolutely. I was in the public by. I didn't do anything but full than are still doing with them. You can hit out to our them. Get stronger and stronger. Nineteen that my voice is becka today than it was an one and i think it's a combination of that i am experience at the hot shit makes voice better. You'd be talking about the fact that you were taking singing lessons. And the audience will see the impact of them. You know kind of as as little working out. What straight into practice. But i guess what you really you know. Is that the voices muscle and you basically became a professional. I think it was a combination of like the technicality becoming professional mixed with life experience. And i feel like quite low of huge things happened in my life that difficult that really influence the way the i sing and i feel like he died. Get it without it. Something to do with pay letting national pain. I think makes specter. And that's why. I think it's a strange juxtaposition between the pop world. Today in the cost was like. I think in order to sing really well. You have to have love experience so i don't understand why not the successful people say young because they don't and they were few exceptions. Lighten can tell. Billie eilish is like at profoundly date young an Like the that's she's in normally very rare to sing that my voice get back to every time selling also it does keep getting better and i think that richness is is very exciting because on one looks for what you're going to do as much as one looks back to all the albums that you've already made. Did you feel ready to be a stall when you're first album. Do you want the truth or something. Beautiful came out and was such a success. I was i never anticipated the i would become a successful as i did it. I felt like. I can't quite humble beginnings and i i was surprised and not prepared really and i don't think anything fancy so that nilesat think the it was quite difficult for my mafa she I think that she thinks that Celebrity culture is really unhealthy and she was very worried about the impact that would have made nine at night. Not kind of questions. Essen and united. You do have to be calm quiet. Thick-skinned really to do with the or you have to figure out ways to with some of the criticism and stuff like that. And i. I think i've developed a good way. They met ident- night Feet my mom has still. What's your way of dealing with it. I think the. I have to just accept the mice. Which is my mum's by saturday Act except the not everybody Room light here. And i also think that sometimes when he live attacking the angry something about me that often. It says more about that than it says about me. And that's just. That's kind of how i cut with it because i fail that. Enraged such as a passi-. I think that nice equal.

"Was 15. And a boy has been sending her harassing messages for nine months. And like a lot of us might have He went to confront the parents. He had talked to the boy's father before, but I guess I didn't really resonate. So he went over with his daughter and son to address the issue again Friday night. While outside the residents. The confrontation escalated violence, of course. 20 year old man told cops. That Mr Brandon Curtiss hit his younger brother. And then he pulled out a gun to defend the team boy and shot Mr Curtis, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Does that mean that it's not okay to confront your kids? Cyber bully? That's for you to decide. 7275791 or 25 to grab alive. Who are you? Yeah. Hi. It's making hay making what's happening. Yeah. Hey, I just wanted to comment on the Jo Jo the other side of that coin, you guys Didn't really talk about is that for every 100 kids? That are gonna pretend that they're gay are one of say that they're gay. She may be helping one or two. That really are noted needs some somebody looked up to. Yeah, that's more important. It's as important if not more important. You're absolutely right, because when we grew up You know, I can't imagine what it was like for a gay kid to grow up in the eighties where, like gay was a thing that you attached like a Freddie Mercury or whatever. It was never really s. So you know you didn't I imagine growing up straight. Yeah. And I imagine you didn't have too many idols that you could look at in the in the lesbian community of Oh, I wanna be like Martina have right to love or Billie Jean King or anything like that. Whereas now when? When we reach kids so early, you know, some kids know that their gay at 9 10 11 years old and for them to have someone so popular that they can now go. Wow. You know, maybe I'm not gonna be discriminated against or whatever. Definitely a great thing. Right? For sure. Thank you. She saved one life. Yeah, it's actually worth it. Great Call. Thank you. Making appreciate that love you, Sheriff. Love you back 7275791 or 25 to grovel live high. That guy. What? You're happy New York Side eye guy. Later. Every day, dude, 7275791 or 25 and 807, 711 or 25. I mean, is there something you don't know is someone who doesn't have a child? I feel like there's got to be, uh, just that little thing that gets activated in your mind where you barely have control of your own decisions. If you know that somebody is hurting your child, whether it be physically mentally sending messages. You like to think you can handle it 10 different ways. I would just think that Somebody messing with your with your daughter is that's on it. And this is clearly been going on in this case for an extended period of time. So when do you And we we don't know This guy is in the worst case scenario because it sounds like nobody was with him. So we went over to this house. Ends up being shot without any witness who brilliant had his best interest in mind. And now that families just saying Hey, came in here, guns blazing and beat up and tried to hit my brother, So we killed them, And there's nobody there to argue the other side. So if you've tried this in school, and you're not, you know if you try to go to the principal, and you're not getting closure there. You go to the cops and you say, Look, this is this is cyber harassment and you go with the cops over to that person's house. That said, If you don't see that those as options or you don't get what you need there. Any parent especially of a daughter, I can only imagine is gonna want to go. Hey, look, man. I told you to tell your son and not that crap off and he didn't do it. You're gonna want to bring that to an end yourself. What? And I don't know if you know the answer this what would be considered Something that the police would help with. I think if there's a law being broken of harassment is if I'm sending D ends and I'm just like slot, you know, just name calling. You think you think that that would the cops will get involved? I would imagine so Yeah. I would imagine so that you're sending unwanted messages over the Internet. And if I can prove that was you? I don't know what law exactly it breaks. But I can only think that there are cyber harassment laws and cyber stalking laws. And they can. At the very least, the cops can say we're going to give you a restraining order so you can't contact this person anymore. But to go over there on your own. While I do understand, and I can only imagine how frustrated and angry you must have been. You're not putting yourself in a very good position, especially going alone. Like at least bring someone to videotape the whole thing. Something because now I mean, I'm sure the laws in Texas are pretty friendly. Tonto. Stand your ground. I'm sure you gotta live alone. Guys just kind of struck a chord with me when my son turned 21 years old. He left me a note saying that he was transgender and, uh, is now recognizes a girl, right? Always been. My son is that their life force and So it was really tough for his mother and I were divorced Tonto, Wrap our heads around and accept it, you know? Getting? Yeah, it's is unfamiliar territory for years. It's something that you didn't expect. And it's something that you don't have any experience dealing with. Right? And he and he kind of expected us the immediately go. Okay. No problem. We understand. Uh, but it took, you know, it didn't take me long. I've always been there by aside for everything he wanted to try and do and, uh, supported him and all of his decisions. Try to lead him in the right direction. But he, uh You know, he got all pissed off in an upset when hey was living with me at the time. And I said I can't live here while you make this change. Well, I mean, hold on one second. What? Why in the hell would you say something like that? Jesus Christ. Because because, as anyone else was, I was confused, You know, but well, hello, my man. There's a there's a big difference between confused and deliberately ostracized in your kid and rejecting him and you chose rejection as opposed to understanding and that sucks. You've never been in that situation, right? You're right. I have been. I love my And after I thought about what I had to say, literally an hour later, I called him met with him and said I was completely 100% wrong, saying that bin I support you and anything that You need to go through, all right?.

Maybe you convince victoria to show up on one of them and the rest of the nine songs can be say songs that are collaborations with women from you know women in music that inspired the spice girls and women that were inspired by the spice girls. So say you know little mix and spice girls or diana ross and the spice girls so there is my concepts. I'm not asking for any percentage. Any cut what do you think. I think that's an incredible idea.

"All right well. I don't know if you guys saw this. But there is a new app that has been skyrocketing to the top of the charts and the google play store and apple. You guys know what i'm talking about. It's called parlour. Now you may be talking about parlor a. r. l. He are the app that has been scrubbed from humanity for the internet for breeding ground for organizing hate groups. I'm actually not referring to that parlor. I'm referring to the parlor that's spelled p. a. r. l. o. r. which people mistakenly thought they were down other parlor. The oh this great tight. It's existed for over a decade and has just gotten rid floating out there until their name made the news and people started downloading. It mistakenly thank you. They don't mike god. It looked like a swing at a really kind of convoluted idea. Like this is their their their tagline. The first and only social network. It's clear mud. What it does guy says the first and only social network so evidently about ten years ago a developer had an idea for what was essentially like a kind of a chat roulette type of situation where he would listen. I do not want to disparage whoever invented. Par lower This one that because they're having a lot of success right now guys are blowing up one day and we're like what is all what is it didn't take off when they launched a decade ago. It's terrible i guess. Who wants randomly get on a phone call with somebody like that's what it does. You can go into these different topics in rooms. Like say it's clubhouse. Yeah yeah like here for example. Let's say. I wanted to go into the vip fan clubs room. I will randomly be on the phone with like another billie eilish fan. Hypothetically there aren't a lot of active users. You're probably a couple reporters downloaded dry out. The few people that got on the phone with somebody. They got hung up on almost immediately. So it's a it's a very odd apu was a big swing. Just didn't work out but the developer never removed it from the stores right now. Theoretically there's a lot of very angry right wing radicals making random phone calls and a hud dated web. One point zero like it's it's totally janke. It looks like an old like wanna be my space from a decade ago. That barely functions. So congratulations parlor shirt day. He has finally arrived. maybe people are using it. Maybe it'd be like hey man. I was actually accidentally downloaded parlour. Good condo in the vip clan or the celebrity users vertical which there is one where you can evidently talked to celebrity users. Those unclear what celebrities are using it. Hypothetically if you were celebrity downloaded the app go right there because plug you up with the fans. So

"What i try to do with instrumentalists like have something that feels organic and human and then put it on. Its edge and play it in a way. That might be a little atypical. So you know just a piano for the first twenty seconds of the song. How can i make that unique. And so that was when the the side chain compression idea came to me side. Chaining in this songs case. It's a compression plug in put on the piano and then configured to react not to the piano itself but to the information of another track in this case a kick drum and in this case a muted kick drum and so you get this sort of undulating like tied going in and out feeling on the piano. Without even having to hear the kick drum and then it comes in halfway through the verse. Piano is so beautiful it just drew me in like right away. Ninety five percent of the time. Billy is there the entire time. I'm working on production because she is so informative to it and she'll save me a ton of time you know if she's not there. I could really quickly go off the deep end into an area that she wouldn't like and so billy's kind of always there to guide it. There's this kind of like tonal snare to the song which is actually just a a synth layer but at only plays on the twos and fours it sounds like snares like snow white and the seven dwarves like like an ice pick hitting a you know gold mine or something right at has that like king sound which i thought was super interesting. That combined with the side chain compression of the piano. Those are the two things that got us excited and then we were writing to that. This was all in the bedroom that i had in my parents house in holland. Park the best thing that i had in my childhood bedroom is my grandad's beat up upright everett piano. I mean that piano sitting there just as an acoustic instrument in the room is such a huge help in terms of writing songs. Because you play the loop but the loop on your computer can drive you crazy and so just sitting there and playing the piano and going is slow as you want and picking up a chord change if you want it to to be.

And I did just get to a point with the APP team where I never things I really love but those opportunities arose few and far between and I just think it makes sense nowadays that if you have something to say as an artistic person that you do it yourself because that seems to be the world in which we're living now it's. I found it hard in the end to just be an actress for higher who? Wasn't considered in pots because I wasn't in the group of the five actresses that get cost absolutely everything in this country. So yeah, that pissed me off right to this is not part of what you do going forward developing and stuff and I hate to say, yeah, I hope. So I hope I can continue to do and I.

Fed Cup to be renamed Billie Jean King Cup
"The Fed Cup has been renamed the Billie Jean King Cup and there's those big plan fair announcements about this week and it's a lovely lovely thing I think it feels so so right there is I think one caveat David that you pointed out on twitter which. Which I very much agree with. How How how much does it really? Well first of all, I agree with you I think I'm ready that it's been renamed. That's The. Caveat was the if we are renaming the Fed, cut the Billie Jean King Cup. It feels even further away that we're GONNA end up having the the great mixed team competition or Fit Slam slammers I'd love it to be. A combination of the Fed Cup or the Billie Jean King Cup in Davis. Cup, that I think the sports so. Hugely needs that feels further away. But maybe maybe that's maybe that's not the case. Maybe the fact that her name is on it and she is may be involved more. We'll bring that closer together because she so much wants that is well, she's. The biggest campaign for. Men and women working together and and being on the same page and being on the same bill for goodness sake. and. Hopefully. That will come in the future I mean. There are those events just don't exist this year. So this is the news news, the renaming, and and that alone really really about just one article Chris Clare in the New York Times right timing done an interview it but a Jianqing, I really enjoy a recommended he coach Bud Collins. Once. Saying that the Fed Cup is a splendid idea with a lame name and he quotes spitting Jean King saying. When a woman does something always think we do it for women when a guy does something, they never say they did it for the guys and so one of the changes I hope I can talk about more and more is that I would like people think that we. Are Doing it for the sport not for Women's Sports and I I thought. Absolutely right. It's It's about time attitudes changed. Yeah I thought that was. A perfect summation of both what Billie? Jean King is about an also how how this could be a a way forward for kind of mixed event and and a combination of men's and women's. Competition together but I mean personally that that that's not been my vision for mixed team event I've I've not thought that it should replace. Davis carpet. Now, village Inking Cup I genuinely think that it could go along alongside them. Both I don't think you need to. Get rid of them and combine it into one I. Think you could have a mixed team event like we had with the Hoffman Cup but make bigger thing out of that, and now we've got that point in the calendar with the ATP Cup and that I think that's the point. Many Times. Cup. Turn. So. Many cups when you did all the cups said back to back, it's Oh it's cup overload kind feels to be redundant to be talking about the of the moment you. Know. What the tent tennis Kinda is anymore but I mean personally I'm just saying I think there's room the space. It would be a great thing for a mix team competition to exist alongside. The Davis Cup in now Billie Jean King Cup that we already have our cup runneth over. A. Carrillo.

Leslie Welcome. Hi. I'm so excited to be here with you. Guys for those who don't know Leslie wasn't amazing. Tennis player career high numbers seventeen as well as doubles number ten and we're going to talk to her about her career, but also what? She's been up to since stopping link. That's a lot to get into. Let's begin with. How has your quarantine shutdown period band during the coronavirus pandemic? What have you been up to? Well. It's a good thing that I like myself. Because I spent a lot of time alone I'll like everybody else and I'm in new. Jersey so very close to the epicenter of New York. Things were just out of control a few months ago or a few weeks ago. so one of the things that I decided that I would do once. I heard that it could be helpful was too so fabric masks so I just went to. My sewing area, dug out all the savage that I had because I. Work in real estate as well usually for my client I will so the Mahan. ME, apron and I just had. Had all that fabric and turned it into masks donated it to the hospitals they they accepted it. They sent us. I did it with another tennis player Pope Amuse and so we would get them picked up, and then they would send us pictures of them in the hospital with the signs with masks with signs that would say, stay home or stay say or be well, so it was a little bit. It was a lot rewarding. So. What else have you been focusing on during this pandemic? Tell us a little bit more. One of the things that I did I spent the last few years working was some tennis athletes that were on NJ -til, excellence a team and they were now heading off to college, and I wasn't quite sure that they knew all the things they would be facing as a student athlete so I, did a virtual training with them, and they were from all across the country. It was about a dozen of them may have different challenges and things to to figure out or interview. current athletes. What's it like so? It was really eye opening for them rewarding for me because my friends. They call me the professor because there's two things that I did. I either get up in the morning and I profess I'm GonNa do this I'm GonNa. Do this do that do that and usually I'm spinning like a top and do any of it so so they can hear me and my cadence, oh. You're professing now. They just say we don't even listen to you. We know we know you're not GonNa do, but maybe one thing on the list, but the other thing that I do. The professors is I. Love to teach in. You experience some of that I. Just I just love so it was rewarding to work with the athletes and some of my individual clients virtually to do win for life trading. So, how do you guys Know Each Other? You mentioned? You know arena from from working together. What have you guys been up to together I guess in the past couple of years. Will I will the first time. Obviously followed her career in since she was from New York and live not far from where I lived in New York. We were both in Washington Heights arena. Would you say you were Washington Heights to? I typically say Washington Heights but I'm more in. Would in lactose seven I street? Yeah, that's why I ask because I know there's a difference. But anyway we were, we were New Yorkers kindred. Areas and so I was coming down to do someone's life training with the boys and the women were young men, and the women just help them be ready for what they might face on the tour in terms of media training. How do you do interview techniques? How do you pivot and not answer difficult question? How do you get your point across and we bonded right away. Away, because we both loved HGTV and we still do so so that was I don't know two thousand fifteen in Ben, I, guess the last time I saw her was in November during winds life training at the Sloan Stevens Invitational Camp and Rada was there is one of the guests, coaches and speaker, so we just and we just kept up. Overtime was the magic of text. The company's the Wgn Usda than hire you and win for life. Colin teach people and train them. They need to. I have done some. You know I'm always involved with Billie Jean and the power hour and I haven't done as much with the US, but perhaps I, will you never know? So you know it's, it's my passion, so I'm not gonNa Chase people to to take the opportunity to to get better and to have To improve your. Your ability and I think when we feel more confident about ourselves, especially as as young women. you just do better. You play around the court. You're not worried about some things because you know all I'm GonNa. As that interview I'm not worried. I know how to speak at this party I'm not worry, and that's just one less thing. You can check on your list so. Game! Oh I believe it helps you.
Former Player and Agent Donald Dell
"Everyone John Wartime here is this week's sports illustrated? Tennis podcast is also the first week of Wimbledon. He says wistfully our guest this week. Is Donald Dell? Donald is a former player a promoter broadcaster at agent. He's worn many hats, not unlike Bartholomew Cubans. He is also worn many at once. Donald is still force in tennis. He wrote an op Ed recently in the Washington Post, about the prospect of combining the men's and women's tours, so we talk about that. We talked about where tennis is right now, and as a bonus, Donald signed Michael Jordan out of North Carolina and especially after last dance. We talk about Michael Jordan so some non tennis bonus coverage on Michael Jordan and a lot of good tennis. Talk here's Donald Dell. Appreciate you doing. How are you doing? I'm doing fine We've been lucky I've been home since about March fifteenth, but my two daughters, their husbands, and our two grandchildren, five and seven are about thirty yards from where we are, and it's like one hundred twenty day thanksgiving. It doesn't sound bad. Yeah, let's I I. Don't know but I got a couple of things to bring up. I. Did want to talk about the the op-ed you wrote. Wrote thought you'd be a good person to talk about with the the tour merger, which has been eclipsed lately by a Co bit in the US Open, but this was sort of a hot topic, and everyone says the same thing which is great idea. The devils in the details, so let's let's advance that. How do we exercise those those devils details? How do we push through? So this becomes more than. In abstract idea that we need to negotiate what what are we doing to make this happen? Well I I think I think more than that. The Devil Devil's in the the leadership in other words I think it's GonNa take strong leaders it both part, both groups to get done, and I think Steve. Simon, and Mickey Lawler. Are Really, veterans, and and well respected, and well like Gatanzi the new chairman of the ATP I'm told his very smart very capable. And I. Think if the if they wanted to really do it, they get together. And then it takes a lot of support. You Know Billie, Jean and Roger, and some of the leaders in the game. All got behind it, then you. It's sort of like all the protests out there today you gotTa. You gotta move the ships and it's a big alphabet soup that everybody sort of fights for their turf. The ATP tour. Has Really established itself, but it's not part of the grand. Slams not far the idea. And not that that they want to be I don't Miss Other Sami, but I just think. Recently in the last six or eight years, the ATP tour has not worked very effectively in some senses because they've been voting in blocks the three tournament directors vote together. The three player reps vote together, and then the chairman's left. There was hanging vote and literally one vote because he always makes one side unhappy in the last two chairman. If you review John have been fired. Because one group didn't like how voted, and they need a super majority of forty two to extend. His contract so his contract ran out. In the last two cases now I'm told by people that very close to respect the Gal Gal Danzi is quite a different. Person needs a very strong leader, very smart and media and he really gets it. I just think for the sport It would be really helpful to have the two groups. Merged on a on a simple basis, and the when you talk about the details, you're right but I think the simplicity is what matters keep it simple stupid when you want to merge the to start with you don't have to have exactly the same boards, the same voting members, but come in and merge it, and have you know five or six basic principles and truthfully. We, found out in Washington with the city open that Iran for fifty years literally for the WTI ESPN Tennis Foundation. That We. We had a men's only event for forty two years, and then city came along our title sponsor, and rightfully said look fifty one percent of our clients. Bankers are women, so we're not gonNA. Unless you'll bring a women's tournament into it and we did, but it was a problem because there's a bigger women's event at Sanford for seven hundred thousand, we were only allowed by the rules for two fifty, but guess what. The ATP the minority of the ATP ten percent fought it tooth and nail. They didn't want it integrated tournament. And I to go before the board three different times, and swear up and down that we give him favorability on the scheduling of the Center Court. Scheduling, transportation scheduling practice courts. And it just didn't. It's working okay. And the women, the best women like to play Washington but now under the new WTA rules. We can only sign one of the top twenty in the world in order to protect the other event. That's raising more prize money by seven hundred or more, so those kind of problems out to be worked out and the ATP tour really needs to get a stronger with this membership the the the vocal minority, which is really only about ten or twelve percent, and it's always the complainers on the tour. The to aboard knows who they are, and they're always ranked between one hundred, fifty and three hundred,
A Pandemic Dahhhling, Do You Know What That Means?!
"Hello everybody welcome back to the body. Serve Jonathan and I'm James. His I told you had a bit of a surprise for you at the start. Those, Where we're watching the great, we've got one episode left and it's filled with Hazaras. That is the catchphrase. We are in the middle of pride month, and before we get into the show, a special shot and thanks to Tom Humber stone who has been or designer over the years for? Various artwork that you may see associated with the body serve, and he's given the body serve a pride makeover, so we've updated all of our various socials and websites, and you can have a look at what he did there. We think it's just swell, so thank you talk so there's been a lot of news this week. Tennis's not exactly back in full swing, but it is apparently coming soon. The plans are in place for the US Open Roland Garros and for the WPA of pretty full fall. Schedule this to happen in one day. Basically. You wake up before i. do so when I got up. We'll tell you when that was or when that typically is. Knows a lot for me to catch up on. It took a while took like full day very like I had a a grasp of what was going on, and what it felt like to me, was one domino started, and then everybody was like damn. Yes, so the USDA teased a little bit earlier in the week that they were primed to go ahead than a big announcement was coming pending government approval we had heard rumors about the zoom calls this huge. ATP Zoom Com that no Ruben was talking about on the behind the rocket podcast, criticizing Novak Djokovic for allegedly not being there, so we knew there were is nothing alleged about to. He was not okay. The whole point university I don't WanNa get spread cheated. You know everybody's got to be charted once in a while. The so there were there were murmurs throughout the week, but. Wednesday at ten am. The US Open holds a press conference in the empty and cavernous. Arthur ash stadium. Stacey Allaster is there? They have a few other folks on court physician. Mc I forgot who that was. Sorry. My reporting skills are just not up to snuff over the the tennis break, but it was very much a public relations event. There were a lot of sport reporters on zoom. So after the the press conference happened, or after the main presentation happened, there were individual questions by. Reporters who they showed on zoom, and when we found out that there wouldn't be media physically on site. We got the sense that this, too was a trial run for what the media access will be at the actual tournament where presumably players will be interviewed via zoom. Right, so the big announcement as I'm sure you've already heard that the US Open will go ahead. As planned in the the same part of the calendar in New, York City at Billie Jean, King National Tennis Centre with no spectators, and with a lot of health provision in place, but listen I'm still surprised that they're going full steam ahead. I'm still extremely skeptical and especially what we're seeing now in. Clemson University for example. was. At twenty three members of the football team tested positive for COVID. The exploding numbers and Florida Arizona California baseball has affected right now. Golf is affected right now pretty much every sport that you've seen. Attempts to restart has been affected in one way or another in tennis. Not going to be immune to that and we'll get to why. We think that that's the case based on what's been going on overseas. Break so I? Guess I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's just go through the actual news first, and then we can comment on it as part of this abbreviated summer schedule, or there will be the Washington D. C.. C. Tournament, the city open held in DC, starting August fourteenth for the men I. Don't think we have heard about the possibility of a winds tournament yet, but I believe it's being discussed because it's typically joint event, right, it's not currently in the WTO calendar, but apparently that is still open, then the western and southern open. That is normally in Cincinnati will be held in New York City the week before the US Open. And then the US Open and because Cincinnati is moving to new. York. That means that there will be no qualifying. For the US Open because typically the week leading into the Grand Slam in New, York, city. It's this. It's this week long. Qualifying Extravaganza pretty much and so with Cincinnati playing that there's no room for qualifying

All About Blacksmiths
"Our first expert is Philly. Barret goes enthused yourself toby. Toby my name is Billie Barrett. I am a blacksmith. Thank you. Let's meet our second expert. Linski Chris. He's introducing yourself to toby toby. I'm Chris Ski and I am an artisan and a welder. And I am a reenactor of a female blacksmith at Colonial Williamsburg tells about those hot and Molten. Sounds Lisa. Oh did you hear them? I did I think everybody else heard them to painting. Topsy time. That is correct. That is when we put our experts on the hot seat while they answer toby's questions. Lisa should we put on the hot? I totally buried because his initials are be just like the initials of my nickname nickname batboys. Okay Yeah I'm a math for sure. I don't WanNa mess with me fat boy okay. So Toby we're starting with billy. What is your first question for? Billy Billy would you rather get a heavier envel- or a hotter forge I would rather get a heavier and bill? Why is that? I just like heavy things. You're GONNA love your parting. Gift today. I don't think we have mice. Okay Chris and Billy what have you made the most of I'll answer I 'cause I work at colonial Williamsburg work at a historic forge. So we mostly do shoes. Oh that's cool. Do you do like high heels only for the fancy horses? How about you belly? I mostly make A little bit of everything with a specialization. In knives you make knives like knives that you cut food with everything from cutting food to serviceable tools. That you use every day very cool. Do you name any of them. Like Mac or sure to name a lot of them really. Yeah who and. What's the name of your favorite favorite favorite Tomahawk? I call stabby stabby. Okay Toby Billy What would be your second? Most favorite thing to do is make besides knives One of the things. I'd really like to do before I move on from this. Life is make a a really nice replica of an old style. Lock which is one of your skills as a Smith that you really want to try to. Master cool is homes for both of you. How old were you when you gone? Interest IN BLACK SNIFFING. Yes I'd like to know. I'd like to know how one decides that. They want to be a blacksmith. At what age does that happen? You just wake up one day and say hey I wanNA. A blacksmith. House is on fire. Let's make knives. How does that work? I studied had a minor in art in in university And so I started with glassblowing actually and then I started working at colonial Williamsburg and I saw some of the cool. Things that the blacksmiths were making in. That's the way I kind of got into it. How about you billy? Ironically when I was about twelve years old my parents took colonial Williamsburg. Is that true? Absolutely and It was a rainy day and I was begging my dad. Let me stay and watch the Blacksmith and the gentlemen still alive today and left me there for two hours and that clinched a deal for me. That was it as Peter. Ross it was Peter. Ross yes it was who is being arise. I guess he's a black one of the most well respected smithson. The World Master Blacksmith at the Anderson Forge words. Okay so Chris what what I see if I went to colonial Williamsburg. Mcdonald's like what would you see if you saw her there? Ya Okay and do you do any acting? Over's voice overs So we all portray real people that you know really lived in Eighteenth Century Colony of Williamsburg Virginia and there was a real forged called the Anderson Blacksmith Forge. And I play someone named Loretta. Frye who real person. And she was a female blacksmith. During that time we reenact what you would do or what I would she would do. I would do in the the daily routine of that person. In the eighteenth century I be dressed in eighteenth century clothing specifically what she would wear while she was working as a blacksmith. Clocking fear are going to be burned. Probably not a good idea. Kristiyo like my name is way. All your guy's name again. The Red Fra Loretta. Our blacksmith just like that old timers. Yeah pretty much. Do the voice better killing you. Just Hi I'M LORETTA. Fry and I. You know my a Blacksmith Year. They Anderson four bit of a southern accent. Yeah I hear that good okay. So for billy what are the steps to forging something that would depend on what you're making you it's It's all for your favorite thing knives for knife. It would be for me to determine what type of knife us what type of material I'm going to use. And then if I'm not sure about how I'M GONNA FORGE IT. I would forge it on clay. I deceive it's GonNa come out like I wanted to and then I just go from there. Say I'm just going to make a simple Chef's knife the first thing I'm GonNa do is forged my tip out dumber. Draw the blade out to the length that I want I'm GONNA taper down taper my blade down figure out how went to look and then just finish up so when you say you forge. Something does that mean. You put like a chunk of metal on the end of a big stick and put it over. Fire depends on the methods that you're used to work in many people do many different things. But yes you heat a piece of metal to well over a thousand degrees and then you use your hammered to shape it into the shape that you would like you ever makes more than there. Didn't they tasted terrible. I bet they had a lot of iron metal. This Chris how have used your angle personal best. Is You know. I'm not sure I've never. I've never waited but it's pretty heavy right. Do they come in many different weights and different sizes? Okay so is for both of you Is it true? That all blacksmiths are really bulky. Big Burly Guy. Sure okay. No I don't I don't think so at all. I do need a certain level of strength To use the tools. But there's a lot of intricacies to two blacksmith thing And sometimes a less bulky person could do that better I see. What do you think about that billy? I think it's Agreeable and sometimes you do have to have a delicate touch and it's one of the hardest things ever taken me to learn is that you don't always have to bash stuff small. Yeah that too but you only do that once. You've passed your fingers before. Oh No I don't WANNA know la La la La but does that sound like something. You'd like to try one day toby. What try doing some blacksmith out to? Your House is safe as long as it's safe. Yeah thing like one of you. I could like higher museum or something. You're looking for anyone. Whichever one of US want to be an Apprentice Liar.

Pam Shriver - US Open finalist aged 16, winning Olympic Gold, and partnering Martina Navratilova
"Thank you so much for doing. This is an absolute treat to have you come and yeah in very strange circumstances obviously for everybody in the world not just the tennis world. You're joining us from California. I believe how how things over there. How has lockdown? How you coping the situation and the lack of tennis in La Lives. Well I would say over all I'm really proud of my three teenagers at a time. When teenagers want to distance themselves from their parents. They've accepted what has to be done. I feel like California in the mayor of Los Angeles I live. We live in Los Angeles. So we've had some leadership both at the state level and and at the city level that has been really strong very consistent and I think that's one of the reasons why Are Part of the United States is actually done much better than expected in pleased that the generation who the order to stay at home. It's really counterintuitive to what they want but There's been a lot of acceptance in I can tell you as a homeowner sixteen years ago bought up property with a private tennis court. Tennis court is one of the reasons why a couple of us in the family have kept better sanity. How much you missing professional tennis right now? Well you know I missed Indian. Wells would have been an easy drive. I missed that one. The most I will tell you because of the business of my home life regardless of a pandemic or even if I'm just driving my three kids around and The the level of detail that I would follow the tour from week to week is not as detailed as it would be like when I worked for ESPN at Melbourne and maybe look the weeks leading up to Melbourne. I knew what was going on in the lead up tournament so for me personally. I haven't missed it that much but we haven't yet gone past one of the tournaments. I think would impact us the most which would be say for for me. Roland. Garros Wimbledon. I mean I thought the tennis will did a great job of I mean it was tough call for Indian Wells. I remember that Sunday night when it was called It took everybody by little bit by surprise but it just started the domino effect of what this virus in the effects on the world sports It just started a series of closures around the world yet studying to look like a very pristine cooled by by that tournament. Looking at your Your social media. You look like you've taken the opportunity during lockdown to have the most neatly and cleanly arranged trophy show in all of Iraq in Pam. Yeah one of my first during lockdown one of the first things I was thinking. Well little things can I post What content would be interesting and I thought all right well. My mantle pretentious fans would be interesting to see The the major championship doubles trophies. Most support try one with Martina. There was a US Open with a net. Pashas vary of there was some Fed Cup stuff. There was recognition of our Grand Slam doubles year as well as the year. I got the finals of US. Open in singles at Sixteen. So I thought it was kind of a fun tour and I guess most of the stuff I posted that one had the most views in. I think it just shows you how much people want to see one way or another or or touch any way major tennis. He absolutely in all of these things that that you just mentioned there. I I really want to talk about. I in first and foremost your your partnership with Martina Navratilova. Seventy four doubles titles together including Twenty Grand Slams. You're you're still the most successful women's doubles partnership of all time. What what made you such a great partnership the too well. I think there are a lot of things I think when you look at how we played our singles The style of play with serve volley back in the eighties. That was kind of. That's how you play doubles back then too so it was really Our our singles games translated into being great doubles players. Naturally the lefty righty combination. If you look in tennis history whether it's nukem Roach whether it's the Brian twins whether it's McEnroe Fleming There's a lot of great Lefty righty doubles teams. I just think you know the choice of who serves the sun's tougher righty. There's just a lot of things that are beneficial to having a lefty righty Our personalities you don't have a partnership that long if your personalities don't gel well We enjoyed each other Our senses of humor clicked in. There are a lot of those matches through the years where we would play after. Martina was the featured match at night So we played and we had to wait late night tennis So if you didn't enjoy each other and our coaches got along. Well obviously we had teams. That were much smaller back then. My team was generally just one Martino. It's one of the first that brought in teams of more than one But our team's got along well and so it just led to who knew that January eighty-one with lead to what it ended up leading to it was I think ultimately nineteen eighty that Martina. Kool G to US could be your your partner partner. What do you remember about that? Phone call was at Deer Creek Country Club in Deerfield Beach Florida having a late practice and I'm a member. Lee Jackson longtime referee for the tour and She came out and You know years and years before anyone has self owner yet said Martinez on the phone and I mean whoever is practicing with the it was the practice was abandoned Iran in got it got on the phone. And W T tour office and You know she asked me. She doesn't mix her words. She didn't learn a lot of pleasantries. Just asked me if I had that commitment to doubles partner for the next year and I said no I did not. I had just the. Us Open just a month prior. I'd gotten into the finals with Betty Stove in Betty Stove his last tournament. And we lost Billie Jean King and Martinez. I think it was six six or five and five and I think that was probably the last indicator. Martina needed that. She she she was looking for. A younger partner was starting. Her career could play for a period of time and so it was obvious it. I didn't even have to break commitment. Thank God because if I'd had a commitment to somebody I mean that would have been a tough a tough one to pass on playing doubles with Martina. So I'm glad it worked out that I didn't have a commitment to a partner confessed to a tip off from for Mary Carillo but she has suggested that that I ask you about asking Martina to sign a cocktail Napkin to seal to seal team together forever. Yeah well we had already been together a long time because we we. We went through a stage at think Springtime of eighty four. We lost in the tournament of Champions in Orlando. We didn't lose again for over two years so I think it was. One hundred nine straight matches When we hit a one hundred wins and it was in Eastbourne so the tournament director George. Tendon threw a party for us that night. And we were celebrating To to the history of tennis no one can remember doubles team ever hitting one hundred wins in a row so A I decided to take that moment. I wrote a contract on a on a peeper. Napping it says I'M MARTINA NAVRATILOVA. Promise always to play doubles with Pam. Shriver and I had a witness line. The George Hendon was signed in as I stood up to give the toast and give the contract Martinez in my head ended up in a lamp shade so it was kind of like it was funny and it was. I have that I have. I still have that cocktail napkins somewhere. But it's back in Baltimore. My hometown Collecting dust but will not be thrown out. One hundred nine matches is is truly extraordinary April nine hundred ninety three to July one thousand nine hundred five did you did you feel. Invincible is a team. Well a lot of those matches we went into the matches knowing we were going to win them. But there was a handful that were incredibly dicey and I remember one in particular that was Right in the middle while it was about win number seventy five and it was in Madison Square Garden against our longtime rival. They were generally the number two team behind us. For many of those years Souckova Elena Sakaba Claudia. Coda kill and we came down to a tiebreak in the final set and I remember it was five. All it was late in the tie-break whenever I was returning and Martina just said return it low and I'm going to go and I'm like yes ma'am you know like you WanNa. That was great. It was like a plan now. Of course then you still have to execute but I remember as soon as I hit the return like that's going to be a low. It was a good return. Sheet timed or poach perfectly. Put It away and then we won the next point on serve so that was the hairiest moments that was when we came within two points of losing. But other than that. I don't remember match where we were like. Matchpoints down we. We won a lot of those matches during that streak in
Federer: WTA/ATP Should Merge - our reaction; John Millman nearly retired, then beat Federer - our interview
"Hello everybody another tennis. Podcast for you won't we weren't planning to bring you a couple of days ago but you know we just can't get enough of this and the so much going on and yes okay. There's no tennis but the stuff to talk about and we've got an interview with Joe Millman for you so we'll have that later but Catherine is here. Catherine David Selamat had David and the reason. We're convening altogether now. Not just having the Joe Millman interview which had been the original plan until about four hours ago is about twelve twenty eight pm today. Russia Federa- tweeted and what he tweeted was just wondering am I. The only one thinking that now is the time for men and women's tennis to be united and come together as one at which point Catherine and I wanted whether this was a teaser to a bit of content that might be coming out between the two tours because they've been producing causes loss of that and then I thought it can't be that cooked because I mean we've had instagram and lives law but moments later he said I'm picturing a merger between the WTO and the ATP I'm not talking about merging competition underscores but merging the two governing bodies the. Wta that oversee the men's and women's professional tours it's too confusing for the fans when there are different ranking systems different logos different websites. Different tournament categories. It probably should have happened a long time ago. But maybe now is really the time these tough times in every sport and we can come out of this to weaken bodies or one stronger body. Now when you hear that when you read that out loud that is pretty strong stuff catherine and and have to. I mean okay. We've been moving towards that in terms of little bits of Combined content under brand of tennis united. And we've had a heard an interview that has been put our way by the of their new seat in the new chairman and drag at NC Talkin about more and more collaboration. But for Roger Federer to come out apparently unsolicited and just say it's time to merge the tolls that was bombshell stuff ready wasn't it behold this novel an exciting idea. Yeah it was pretty bombshell stuff. I mean obviously. It's a good idea. Obviously Reid you. The way you read out these tweets. That sounds entirely sensible great. Let's do it. I'm trying not to be Aussie and SNIFFY ABOUT CERTAIN ELEMENTS OF THE STORY. And the way it's developing and being told that is happening on twitter. I'm trying to be a bit. Socially distanced from tennis twitter. I say that with heavy equities because it makes me shudder a little bit But it can be a bit of a toxic place and I'm trying to not be embroiled in it but this whole story has dropped exclusively on tennis twitter sort of had to be reeled back in the sort of arms race to claim claimed territory and claim claim that. This was their ideal. This is the first time anyone had this idea. The facts that you know of one suddenly sitting up and taking native destroy quality when a man shouts about it. All of those things I there is a part of me that wants to be about the the. Oc posted me often wins. But I'M GONNA try and be utilitarian about it and think. Look if if this is how the right thing ends up happening then then fine you know and I'm I'm going to echo do some shadowing echoing into something that you're going to say in relation to a different issue Later in the POD. He's talking about the distribution of wealth and prize money among top level players which is now suddenly a a a burning topic or among plays in general and he says look. I can't believe it's taken a pandemic for for this to be taken seriously and for the real powers that be to consider addressing it. Will I feel exactly that way about the the unification of The governing bodies but hey it took countless examples. They were able to for the. Nhs happened say if the ends justify the means then great. I'm going to suppress for once my RC side. I slightly wants to be able to read that. Billie. Jean King's response on twitter to Roger Federer in the in the sort of tone of voice that you began that that line yourself because what she actually says is I agree and have been saying. So since the early nineteen seventies she. I reckon she didn't say it like that. I kind of wish you had. And then she goes on say one voice women and men together has long been my vision for tennis the WTI on its own was always planned. Be I'm glad we're on the same page. Let's make it happen Hashtag. One voice is what Billie Jean King replied with Samana. Halla Patrick Evita Gubbay. Meru all tweeted support for what Roger Federer had to say and then I found the Dow tweeted. Hey Roger Federa- as you know per hour discussions. I completely agree that it would be great to get out of this world crisis with the Union of men's and women's tennis in only one organization which yeah suddenly makes all of this same quite premeditated between the two of them will maybe more than two of them. We haven't had anything I should say on this subject from Novak. Chuck rich the president of the council at this point. But it doesn't feel like this is just some using that Roger. Federer has just done while he's bored in lockdown as such A. It sounds as though it's been given quite a bit of thought he's had this chat so we've been reminded of this press conference. The rough on the Dow was involved in in two thousand nine hundred Australian Open when he responded to questions about whether he thought that should be a combined organization between the deputy. Atp with just telling us a misunderstanding. So he doesn't didn't understand really why that would be a good idea why we should talk about that. Why why that should be on the agenda And so this is a very very different tone now. Obviously we weren't in the middle of a global pandemic at that point. The world looked very different. It may it may well be that people who had previously never given a second thought to a combined organization of Sydney. Actually th. That's the way out of this. That's a good idea and got to be ready for that. But it's it's pretty stark. Isn't it the difference in town? Yeah I mean elements of needles. Tweet genuinely made me laugh out loud. First of all any suggestion that Is Great is his. English is Spanish as a first language adult composed. Hey at Roger Federer as per discussions. I mean absolutely no way. Is That tweet composed by Rafael Nadal? Himself as per I've ever seen his tweets to Anna Ravenna. Vish venevision join twitter. He said I look forward to our discussions on this means of communication when it was back in the early days of twitter. It was really sort of formal. And it's like a tweet anyway. It kind of reminded me of that one. Yeah so I mean yeah I mean that's not anything. Groundbreaking is that. He didn't necessarily compose himself. And if I was tweeting in a second language I would probably ask for some assistance as well. We've got to eat so I'm not having a pulp about that. But it the the sort of the attempt to say this. This was my idea too. I this came from a discussion that we both had. I was in on this too. That made me laugh because yeah I mean he. He kind of gets a slightly on it from me included because I think I kind of write him off of somebody. That's just not not hugely engaged with the with the wider. She's in Tennessee. And he kind of mice to the time brushes off interrogation about them as sort of. Oh you'll have to ask other people that are that are better informed and have have moose stake in it than than me. I'm not the best person to speak to you. That that clip. That's going around on twitter from the loss. Jesus straighten open is a good example of that. But the fact is he. He hasn't been supportive of equality in In Women's Tennessee's very much market forces based approach T. V. Prize money in the tools etc. So yeah this is. It's a bombshell.

"Many of <hes> grasped the Stop the insanity he quotes and the overall business baby gender equity you can have your people work on that stuff focus on tennis parts but here's Serena after the law of the Dan stuff fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me they micr Billie Jean responded on twitter after that that she would never ask anyone to stop fighting for equality. If I can have an aside this needs to be said as well in this discussion is being said both of these women have track records of addressing inequality and women's rights track records. This is Billie Jean King. There's no title Ni- without her. There's no track without Billie Jean cake. This is Cerita both are unimpeachable but I'll ask you Jackie Mac. Would you think of genes criticism. Schism Serena's response so so there's a lot to unpack here in and you're correct when you say Billie Jean King there is nobody that has done more for the women's movement and athletics and Billie Jean King. That's indisputable it really is I paid my own homage at the just a couple nights ago having said that I think if Billie Jean could do this over perhaps you would word it a little differently Tony to lump in all the things that she called Serena has been a celebrity Serena being a mother she runs a company all of these things to say you can just have someone else take care of that. I mean you can't taste. Sell your two year old honey. I have some staff to take care of you. Let me get back to you when you're four years old. It doesn't work that way. I'm sure that's not exactly what Billie Jean meant but I'm sure a lot of working moms out there. That's what they heard word. I think this is easily solved. The two of them are both on the same page in terms of what they want for women and for equality. I think Billie Jean King has to just let this go on Israel. You have a read on it. I totally agree with Jackie here and I think we're Billie Hi Jean King sort of had and this is odd to say sort of a narrow mindedness here is way too much focus on the tennis. Serena at this point is way bigger than just a tennis player. She is an inspiration to millions. She is a figure she is not not just a tennis player whether she wins Number Twenty four number twenty five number twenty six is irrelevant. Her work is done in terms of creating who she is and being this figure now. If she goes ahead and win twenty four twenty five twenty six will her impact be any greater no she's already seen by so many people as the greatest women's tennis players so this is what's important to her the impact she's having when she says she says she's not going to stop. Fighting for equality is the day she will be in her grape wind. She has a foot in her grave. will she be more proud of her tennis accomplishments or her accomplishments impact on society..
