We definitely seen a lot of enjoyment of this result in Canada. We've made the case for why it's awkward, but I'm also chuffed for people who are into tennis in Canada that are really enthused by this. It's great.

You know, like a mister men. Yes. Luckily, now it's actually two mascots and they are brought to us by Mark and Holly rush. And one is in the 12 year old shih tzu poodle mix. They got indie from a local shelter as a puppy. He was named by our kids after Indy Jones, where I assume is Indiana Jones. Don't know if Mark and Holly know Indiana Jones well on a sort of familiar basis. But anyway, indie Jones. His main interests are archeology snacks and walks, but mostly snacks. And in these co mascot is Cooper a two year old cafe. I got one of them. Hey. They say due to COVID restrictions, he was delivered to us in something called the puppy express.

"Documents that Billie Joe's sister Tiffany gave us. And before we get into it, a warning, some of this material is disturbing and graphic. So it's just four pages long, and on the first page, it lists the name of the deceased. Johnson, Billie Joe junior, his race, sex, age, plus time, date, and location of his death The pathologist's name, Adele M Lewis MD, then it has pathologic diagnoses. In other words, how he died. It lists shotgun wound to the head with a close range entrance wound to the left side of the head, with injuries to the scalp, skull, brain, face, and mouth. On page two, doctor Lewis gets into more detail. She writes that the shotgun pellets cut off his left ear and entered the cranial cavity. She notes, there's no soot around the outside of the wound. That's going to become important later. She writes, Billie's tongue has a ragged ballistic effect. In other words, the pellets damage the tongue, and that there's heavy soot deposition on the tongue. Again, the soot. Reading the report, I remembered a question from Veronica back in episode one. How was that only one hole if he shot his stuff? He should have had at least two that was the way in exit. So where's the exit wound? I have to be graphic here, so forgive me. We also have autopsy photos. They're really hard to look at. There's one of Billy Joe on the exam table. You can see a gaping hole on the left side of his face, about four inches around. And about 5 inches from the top of his head. There are wide lacerations extending up and down from the hole. The first time I saw these pictures, I was shocked because I knew he died of a close range shotgun wound. And I thought I'd see more damage Don't get me wrong. The wound is devastating, but I was expecting the whole left side of his face would be missing. I've read this report over and over again because I wanted to make sure I got it right. You see, according to doctor Lewis, when the shot going off, the pellets graze the left side of Billie's head in a glancing blow. So the hole where his ear should be is both the entrance and exit wounds. Then there's the diagram, a computer generated picture showing a black man crouching over his left hand is near his face. And there's a red line apparently representing the path of the shot going from the ground to the left side of his head. To be honest, this diagram doesn't make any sense. If this is how Billy Joe was shot, it seems like the pellet would have gone into the left side of his head and out of the right. But that's not what happened. All the damage is on the left side

"Okay, so you get a job on Days of Our Lives. So you are quote unquote a secular actor, but you're still very much walking with lord. Yeah. Yeah, very much so. And that's what sort of this book is about. All of the conversations that I have had through the years. Several of them I shared in my last book, which is called it's never too late. And when I was my literary agent here in New York, a person very different from myself. He's a man. Number one, he's a male. He's Asian. He's gay and he was raised a Buddhist. But he's a fantastic guy and I love him. And he told me that what he liked the most about the last book that we had all done together with the stories of like when I shared Jesus with Craig Ferguson on a set in a movie that I wrote for you. I want to talk to you about this kind of stuff. So we're going there folks. But yeah, so that's Kevin Costner or that tell that story in this one. And he said, Kathy, because you've had a different kind of life experience because of the world that you have made your living in. Right. But I was exactly where I was supposed to be. And as a result, every time I had an opportunity to share Jesus or a scripture or just anything any moment that the Holy Spirit would give me in my own spirit, I'd know say it, say it in love, say it intended to say it and humor. You know, say it in a way that will not speak gently and tenderly to people and make them laugh, too, if you can. And they will take notice. And I probably, and I thank Billie with all my heart for this, because he became a very dear friend. I have probably reached millions and millions and millions of people with the gospel.

"And we have to remember that we are all strangers to everyone. And I think that that is it, you know? The Internet has no clue who I am at all. Literally has no clue. And I've learned this even more by meeting people that are other artists and being like, oh, I had no idea this was who you are, and that means that neither does the world. Because everybody is a stranger, always. I really short answer to this question. Internet says I'm 5 5. I'm 6 feet tall. I'm comfortable. They're confusing you with the manager Billy was talking about. That's right, man. Yeah, they're pretending that they're hitting our manager 6 feet tall. He's 5 5, I'm 6 feet tall. So if you woke up tomorrow and realized that this had all been sort of a dream, the last 6 years, right? You had an uploaded the song to SoundCloud, let's say. How would you feel? What would you want to do with your life if that happened to be the case? That's a I hate that I hate that idea. Because I don't know, I would be really really fucked up by that and really upset and depressed. Because it's not just like, this is my career. This is my entire life. There's nothing in my life that doesn't have to do with the career I have. And that doesn't mean my whole life is based. It's all about music. And Billie Eilish is just that opportunity and the reality of everything of what it's part of everything in my life. We're so lucky but it's also in addition to all the luck. It's the 6 years straight of just like working our asses off and getting to accomplish the things that are like our lifelong dreams. So it would really just be getting all of the best parts of our life taken away as what it would really be. Yeah, but then but then getting a lot of better things, though. Also, lots of more freedom and privacy and maybe some more.

You always go into this and you're like, oh yeah, the fans are gonna love this one. And then they're like, no, they don't do that. The Internet does do that, but they don't. But it is true that you think, oh, this will probably be good. This will be big. And then the ones that you don't think that about get but it's like just so funny. Music just loved the way that it's loved and I love that about it. You know, it just people like it if they like it and you just have no idea why. And but besides that, we love the song. I mean, people did tell us that it wasn't a hit, but we. Really? Well, let me ask you guys this. Is there who do you if anyone who do you bounce things off of? Do you trust anyone as a sounding board aside from each other? Just each other. Yeah. Yeah. We are a little annoying about that. We have years what we have. This is what I believe in in Billie consecon this if she wants to is I don't, I don't like criticism and notes for no reason. I like people to feel allowed to give their opinion if they have it, but they don't have to make up and I feel like so many people and kids do this to me all the time like artists that I'm Friends with. Let's send me some song and they'll be like, what do you think about it? What do you think what would you change? And I'm like, just send it to me, and if it's missing something, I'll listen to it and I'll know, and I'll say, hey, you should add this. We have team members. We have managers and stuff who are consistently good at that of we don't ask what they think, but they tell us what they think and it's helpful. And a lot of the time they don't, they think it's great. We don't have any notes for this. And I really am grateful for that. Sorry to interrupt jubilee. Please continue. We are pretty annoying about it as all I was going to say. You know, anyone could say, oh, that's so cocky of them. I literally couldn't give less of a fuck. I don't there. I was literally saying this the other day to somebody. There are times. When we, as people would like constructive criticism, and that's when I don't know how I feel about this because I don't have a strong yes or no in my gut feeling. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna text this person and say, hey, what are your thoughts on this? Do agree with me? Do you not agree with me be honest, whatever. Those are the times when I want to know because I don't feel like I really know myself in that moment. But then there are times when you have a strong gut feeling or you just, whatever the feeling is and you want it a certain way. And you don't ask people. And so in not asking people, you don't want to know..

"Work by the car and shown was briefly in house. Aligned with billie joe. This was the moment. The prosecution argued shot and killed. Billy jo they then said shown went to the diy still in an attempt to create an alibi himself and in lahti mentioned they're driven around the park twice and the prosecution. Said this is pretty for sean jenkins trying to buy himself some time. They pointed to the fact that show one hundred hundred without tiny white spirit and the police found a bottle of the cleaning liquid already in the house. The prosecution mentioned additional evidence against show. He was criticized for his actions. When i finding betty jo he had not attempted. Cpr tried to put in the recovery position. This is seen as highly suspicious response from someone who supposedly cared for billie joe. They claimed he had lied and he told a neighbor at the scene that he had attempted emergency aid the resources of the accusation that show and had not been for an ambulance straight away anti delayed doing so for several minutes he apparently i chose to just the volume on the ringtone on one of the house landline phones as it coincidentally was ringing when he came back into the house after betty jo he then decided to call the night. Before how i'll mention here. I have read another time line which has shown phoning for an ambulance before he found the neighbor. I presume the prosecution's decisions. Based on phone records the emergency calls themselves of which not will also scrutinized. The prosecution deemed shown jenkins to being untruthful. In some of the responses he gave during the conversations with the coal operators show was alleged to have misled the emergency services when he said that he and his daughters had returned to the house to find billy joe in that state after being away for forty five minutes in fact it was near a fifteen to twenty minutes during one of the nine nine nine calls show was us to fail for pulse and maeve billie joe into the recovery position. The prosecution said that he didn't do either of these things in the recording of one of the nine nine nine calls. The emergency operator can be heard asking sean. If billy joe was still breathing to which he replied he didn't know. This seemed to contradict lighter information given by show on during police questioning when he said he saw a bubble from her nose and you she was still alive at that point they also said that while waiting for the ambulance showing try to shake off and then to wash off the blood from his hands which they claimed not thing to be worrying about. Billy joe was lying. There in that state evidence was heard from the paramedics and police officers first on the scene. They all seem to share. The same opinion. Shown was ugly calm and seemed more interested in making. Sure the rafe if he's rover. Mj was put up before it started. Raining sean also reportedly went to sit alone in car while snipers consult is traumatized villages. The prosecution kaime. He did this in order to provide a reason. Why biti jos blood or other forensic evidence may be in the car. they also recounted. That work colleague turned up at the house. Completely oblivious to the afternoons events and show did not mention to them what had happened. The prosecution painted the of a devious initiative man who had been hot headed and violent committing the crime and cold and calculating and he's efforts to cover it up. They claim he lied from the start. Originally when questioned he did not go back into the house after returning from cannot lottie from her clarinet lesson. I'd only change this detail. After an in lahti said he had done in their statements. All the talk from sean jenkins about proud in the vicinity the prosecution said was fabricated and the police had records of any complaints. The jerry was left with a strong hint that there was a possibility that shown jenkins had a sexual interest in betty jo. The defense responded with their own version of the narrative that of a loving foster father in shock after the horror of what happened to the girl he cared for that forensic experts the microscopic blood splatter. Phantom insurance close was the result of billie joe exiling has shown lifted ahead. They made the point. That the person who committed such Attack would be covered in blood blood splattered all over. The patio patio. till so. why. Not over sean jenkins. If he was the merger defense council made the point that the tent pag was in full view of anyone who came through the gate into the garden and the blood was found on both ends of the tent peg the assailants would surely have had bloodstained hands and cuffs. Which shown jenkins did not the merger. We will also had paint splashes on them. Only one paint mark was found jenkins close but it was an older stain. Interestingly no fingerprints found on the tent peg which the defense said resort considering the supposed frenzied attack jenkins was accused of carrying out. They also noted that the ten pack was on top of the coal bunker which is at the bottom of the garden and was not on. Hand near billie joe. If jenkins did go into a rage he would have had to travel a long way to retrieve the peg which did not fit with the out of control narrative. The prosecution was spinning. If shown jenkins was the conniving in devious man. He was being made at be. He said he would have surely not left the mood weapon right next to her body. In cases fingerprints were on. It said it was not possible for sure jenkins to have committed the murder cleaned and composed himself in the timeframe given by the prosecution. If sean jenkins chopped off his daughter's friend following the clarinet essen between three fifteen and three twenty pm as the friends. Parents say there is no way he could have committed the murder. It would have taken at least four and a half minutes for him.

Great rider was telling me that They see this is way back in the sixties and seventies and they ask bill russell it and he said well can they. Can they shoot. That's all i care about. Which is the way we should think about it. That's right but you do need someone to step up. Not unlike you did with dr richards and a right. Yeah but the interesting thing. Now from what. I understand within women's within the feminist community is is is still a sort of kind of evolving Issue around acceptance of trans athletes. Is that true athletes going through. Yes they're going through a lot because some people think they shouldn't be able to Participate and this is an ongoing thing. I what i want is that everyone has a chance to compete or play. So we got to figure this out everyone keeps just pointing to testosterone. But the more. I talked to scientists that are in this that studied. This area is just not that simple. You metabolize every human being metabolize it differently. There's been two guys. For instance that if you measure their testosterone. They would be considered feminine but they won two gold medals and men's i mean these are guys that they've been measured and no one's ever heard about them. But i know of these things. I listened to the scientists and i don't think it's that easy but bottom line. We're going to have to figure it out. It's not cut and dry. So i think we need to keep listening to the scientists as they keep studying this Thoroughly but bottom line. I want every human being to have a chance to compete in play just like the paralympian and the parallel as the human beings that they want to be correct. So that's what. I just billie jean king. Some of the some of the athletes think that that i'm out to lunch. And i'm wrong and they should be allowed to compete. Martina lower. close one of them. She thinks you're wrong.

But all i want personally for me billie jean king and i think the women's sports foundation probably is that we want everyone to have a chance to play in compete. So we've got to figure out the answer. How does it make you feel when like you see like simone byles. You know that the that people are publicly having being open about the mental strain and emotional strain and stress of being professional athletes. I think it's good. I think. I think it took a lot of courage. I also think she cared about the team to make sure they were gonna metal because if she stayed in it they were not going to so. I thought that was a great leadership moment. for her. I think it's good when we hear their truth. But i think we need to do a better job of of Like rookie school where we teach and tell them what it takes to be a professional athlete. But remember the gymnast with decked. There were very abused by their doctor. Remember dr nassar so that is so traumatic and when you get under any kind of stress like of course the competition and the olympics is that alone can be a trigger. That's going to set you off. In into mental challenges and emotional challenges so with gymnastics or so. Many women were abused by this horrible doctor. Dr nassar so i. I think he's as big an issue as the catholic church. I mean that was out of control. Create another place. I we think it's out of control. I'm not sure yet is cheerleading. So we need to really get in there and investigate that area as well. I'm just starting to hear rumbles and a lot of people are starting to come to me in the last two or three weeks saying if you think the gymnastics are bad disturbing terrible so we've got really pay attention to predators and people who are inappropriate and i think also like you know getting back to people you know In an identity. And i it's just that it seems to me that it w- especially with dr richard. You know when people meet people you know outside of the way they think about the idea or the issue you know something shifts and i think there's a lot of distance between people's ideas of what's right and wrong and who people are and who they actually are. I think that you by by stepping into that with renee richards. Y- you know you gave the culture the the opportunity to to to see her as a human and not an idea or a a moral problem. That's interesting because the women didn't want her. When i heard about her coming on they were like crazed. What about the locker room. What about this. I go everybody calm down. I'm gonna talk to doctors. You can do the same. And then i'm going to call. Rene and i went and talked to doctors. I dig hall. Rene rene and i had a four hour meeting. I listened to her stories. And i went to the doctors and i said she considered a woman or not and they said she is. I said that's all i need to know. Went back to the woman. And they're up in arms and i said okay. I was going to ask you to do one thing. I want you to accept her for at least two weeks on the tour. Okay and they all kind of calmed down. And they said okay. That's fair enough within two days of reneging on on the tour all the women company. She is so nice. She's the greatest and to your point. What you just talked about how you look at people differently once you get to know them and once the players are players got to know her then they just love. That was it done. That's great now last question. How are you treated like By these these new New these new champions in the williams sisters in particular happy. I'm known them since. This is scary. One thousand nine hundred eighty eight when there were seven eight years old actually in the book. There's a fodder photos of them allen them. You cannot believe this took three years. We've found these photos. And i kept saying the longest Press telegram was there that day after it was a long beach. California where i'm from and they live nearby and that's the day i met them when they're seventy eight so i have known them for since then they're wonderful. They were on the fed cup teams. I was captain which is the world cup teams of tennis from tennis. So i got to know them..

Ross sorkin spoke this week to sports icon and thirty nine time grand slam tennis champion billie jean king. She's written a memoir about her pioneering life in sports and beyond and after the show. I heard a rumor. That for joe meeting is being recorded talking to billie jean king was emotional. Really emotional. so what are we gotta did so. I had to investigate broadcast news. Of course. yeah so you think. I'm like william perk billie jean Affects me so much she. She makes me remember he. He conjured up a tear but it was after he had already done the thin. So mine is live tonight. I know i was doing a record. This i'm recording. Yeah tell you absolutely okay good. So what do you wanna know billie. Jean king exploded onto popular culture with the battle of the sexes. A much publicized tennis exhibition match nearly fifty years ago hitting her against a former champion. Bobby riggs this. Material is from the nbc news. Archives rigs dancing unite kick line with cheerleaders sweaters his name and he and twenty nine year old billie. Jean answer questions from the press. Do everything on the tennis courts better than i can. But i don't think the she could stand up to the stretch strain and for the big man who put women down. Is that what you're saying. I'm doing all her credit for having all she sits politely. Actually in front of about a dozen. Nineteen seventies microphones and flashing cameras. Very well with a lot of girls timber nineteen seventy-three. Did you watch it. yeah. I watched it. I remember that. I was one of the ninety million I didn't remember why. I mean i thought it was given to police gene now when when when i didn't remember that. He had beaten margaret court margaret corey not enough and so it was not a slam. Dunk that billie jean was gonna missing. Also a wimbledon winner. I think it can be also won. Wimbledon is that true. Yeah his career in the thirty s and forty s was huge. Hope putting the tennis player it so to take on with with the entire feminist world basically on your shoulders i think that was more of the same the same pressure plus you know. He was a male chauvinist thing. He said that they know as i know. And as billie. Jean knows if there's no way a woman it can play tennis with. Hey coupon man tennessee total. I mean i was kind of stuff that went on back. Then so you know we come along and you know he derided her made fun and he was everything male chauvinist to asada fucking and so was a lot of drama a great You know sir the media to be able to promote and sell the biggest more than any story and mystery. Some final in professional tennis are mortified at the circus atmosphere surrounding this match but all the hoopla has done one thing. It has gotten a lot of people watching tennis. Jorge luis nbc news. Houston i don't like to get age and experience and miserable everything but in my lifetime there were separate lunch towns in the south. So when billie jean was coming through all these things are a lot of cultural. And societal things happening in the sixties and seventies and and i thought of her i guess is just a really tough minded tennis pro in and watched everything she went through and didn't realize the personal struggles that she was facing and i guess when you go through so much adversity and she did and and if you reaching there were plans where she was unable to stand up for what you believe because there was money involved in our sponsors in wall. G admits that she didn't feel comfortable with who she was. She was in her fifties. So you can imagine the struggles to twenty through her thirties forties and yet you still able. You know to be one of the greatest tennis player of all time. She really is iconic. That's why she gets mentioned. In the same vein. With mohammed ali or sports transit can transcend everything else. And you know just to come a really important. I don't know.

"Something that we don't know anything about you know with the olympics or the battle of the sexes match or even like a wimbledon. There's so much pressure to play these to win to advance the next round but you also got in the sport because you enjoyed it at that level. Are you still like enjoying it as a still fun. I think i have the same pressures of privilege. I started this that saying if anybody ever. Here's i kind of came up with that one. When lent lindsay davenport was fed cup. Choose the world. The world cup of women's tennis she said help. I've got to play this player. I hate planner. I and it is kinda like yeller pressure. Privileged i went. Oh i'm going to hold onto those i like. She's okay and then she went won the match so she was always really happy about that. But that's where that that's how that it just came out of my brain just like instantaneously and i liked it but you know as a child. My brother and i liked pressure. But i think it's because my parents gave us time and space. They did not care for any good like they didn't ask us. Did you win. You know parents go. did you win well. That's not a good way to start with the kids. Don't don't say did you win. Del tell you how they did. Believe me whether they get a good grade or whether the in sports whatever but branding are so we just loved what we did we still just. I just loved hitting a tennis ball. And i didn't. I didn't hit a tennis ball. Probably for twenty five years. I've had a lot of knee operations shore. And i started playing last october. I said delana would you 'cause laws one player in the world in doubles number. One south african. Anybody that's come from south africa. It's always very interesting. And she's jewish. So i think she always felt very connected to freedom so anyway she still plays a lot. Lawn is still plays lodge. Plays great she. I think she's playing better now than when she played on the tour. Almost so now i said would you hit the ball on me one day and we we've been hitting ever since in fact we're gonna hit later today problem so i loved hit the ball. I love the magic of feeling the ball against the strings. I love the way you shape times bays. It's like dance to me. Although i can't dance anymore. Because i go one one step to the right one step to the laugh. I guess that's a little start to dance. So seventy seven you still love tennis I always loved it. There's no way. I could have gotten through all the pressures on and off for him. I had loved it. i love it. I love hitting the ball and love playing sports but realize the first day i played tennis is what i realized. I play shortstop softball. I've played other sports. I can hit a hundred balls in five to ten minutes and touch the ball. How many times do you think you touch the ball and you play baseball or softball. You you hardly touch of what's five times. If you're shortstop in a game five times in tennis i can hit a hundred in the same amount of time or five hundred actually is baseball so and i love all these sports. But i'm just telling you what tennis has done for me. And they did. Research in tennis has come out number one as far as the healthiest is. Could you use all of yourself. You use your upper and lower bodies and during kobe. Did we have four million new people. Because of social distancing you can do with it as well on each side of the net. I'm so happy. The one thing i have i have not done as i thought during covert i would practice the piano again. Because that's why i love back as a kid didn't i don't have it as far as being really good. I have not done that. But i've actually started. Take photos just from the apartment in new york. They have a nice view. But it's photography like this next phase of your life like something. You're gonna be trying. I don't know. I like the moon in the sun so much because i know this is corny. I don't care because i like love. And is that all of us. Look at the same moon and sun every day so i feel very connected to people when i look at them. I think that corn is a great place to leave it. I've really enjoyed this.

"When billie jean king was just twelve years old she picked up a tennis racket for the first time in decided that she wanted to be the number one player in the world and as you know to fast forward to the end of the story that is exactly what she did with thirty nine grand slam career titles to rename. She's considered the mother of modern sports. She didn't just change tennis. She changed all sports for all people. Which by the way was the plan from the beginning. It was another thing. She looked around again at twelve years. Old and decided. I was just daydreaming. One day and realize that everybody who played cass before white shoes and white woes play with white balls and everybody who played was white. And i asked myself where everybody else so that was my moment that i dedicate the rest of my life to fighting for equality everything. I've done go back to that moment. Epiphany at twelve years old along the way the fight free quality led her to the feigned battle of the sexes. that was her. Nineteen seventy-three tennis match against bobby riggs. An estimated fifty million people worldwide watched billie jean king win that day and it's considered a milestone in terms of the public acceptance of female athletes and a victory for the women's rights movement and general. Today at seventy. Seven years. Old billie. Jean king remains a fierce advocate for gender equality and. She's just published an autobiography. That is called all in. And it's out now from the advocate magazine in partnership with lad. I'm jeffrey masters and this is lgbtq. A with billie jean king so just as we often say how much has changed for queer people in the last fifty years your bookers reminder that that statement is also true for women and your case being a woman and a professional tennis player wasn't even a career path that existed. So when you were starting out how are you thinking about what was possible for a career in tennis. I played team sports as child. I in a lot of people may or may not know my younger brother. Randy moffett moderates are birth. Name became a major league baseball player. So sports is in our blood. I dad was a good athlete. My mother was good athlete. So susan williams in fifth grade asked me. If i wanted to play tennis and i said what's tennis i thought i would probably wouldn't play because she played the country. Calm and my dad's a firefighter. Aside well this is an my realm of thinking. I've also played on the softball team and she told the coach. She'd taking me out to play tennis and she said oh they give free instruction here on tuesdays applied walker. And it's free coaching. While i go out to have my first session with clyde and at the end of it i knew i wanted to be the number one tessler in the world but then was amateur and i didn't like that because i grew up around pro sports pro met. You're really good at what you did and amateur. Music was a hobby so one of the first things. I wanted to change sport. As far as being a professional sport it were none really no options as a child for girls and today there's still many more options for boys. What really happened though. What really changed my life. My epiphany was when i was twelve. I was just daydream. One day and realize that everybody who played tennis for white shoes and white clothes play with white balls and everybody who played was white. And i asked myself whereas everybody else. Where is everyone else. So that was my moment that i dedicate the rest of my life to fighting for equality for everyone everything i've done. We'll go back to that moment. That epiphany twelve years old. And you know few short years after that at seventeen years old you go onto win wimbledon with your partner karen haunts and you're the youngest tennis team to ever win wimbledon and the doubles. We still hold that. It's care enhance actually enhance. But i love the way you say. I like that. It's kind of more grand. you know. it's the gallic. I like it. I love the story though because after you come back from winning the linden at seventeen rather than going to train full time like you would today you go to college and you live at home and this is the part. I was particularly fascinated by you. Got a couple of part time jobs including one as a locker room attendant where you make a dollar fifteen. An hour to full towels. I don't know my ego could handle that high and low of winning wimbledon and being paid a dollar fifteen. What was going to your mind at that point. My parents didn't care for any good. They always said your health and education. The two most important things in so we were. I think trying to please mom and dad a lot here for randy going to college. He would be seen by the scouts. That does not happen in a girl's world. It's like what and no one even noticed so it was just kind of like the way the world works at that point for you does work that way. It's still does a lot in a lot of wage dominant group knows very little about non groups and this is where our lgbt two plus community comes in in that the more you know someone the better you know someone usually the more you like them. You feel comfortable with them. But first we have to feel comfortable in our own skin. I think the more comfortable we are when we talked to somebody. I think helps put people at ease. Of course i didn't probably realize realize At a younger age. I think it really helps like it's just a matter of fact going for that i didn't realize until reading your book. What a long process. It was for you to become comfortable talking about it. You write that. You gotta churning in your gut when you have to talk about being a lesbian. Is that still true today. No i wouldn't say so much now. No occasionally i'll get a from the past. I'll get gut reaction. But i also think it depends on the audience. You're around that you can kind of size up things very quickly. So how long did that churning last in your stomach. I wasn't comfortable until i was fifty one. That's a long haul. I felt very straight as a young person. I had no idea i mean. I feel like men's bodies. Probably on the look out when someone walks in the room the emotional stuff for me and i like being a gay woman because i talked to my friends. I love the word. Gay gets means happy. And i like happy happy. Happy and lesbian is okay. But i don't. I don't get the same fun from that word that i get from being a gay woman i dislike it because it just feels happy and like i think we should be happy and can be happy. I don't know it just feels good to me. Yeah it's fun you know.

Interview With Tennis Legend, Billie Jean King

"So just as we often say how much has changed for queer people in the last fifty years your bookers reminder that that statement is also true for women and your case being a woman and a professional tennis player wasn't even a career path that existed. So when you were starting out how are you thinking about what was possible for a career in tennis. I played team sports as child. I in a lot of people may or may not know my younger brother. Randy moffett moderates are birth. Name became a major league baseball player. So sports is in our blood. I dad was a good athlete. My mother was good athlete. So susan williams in fifth grade asked me. If i wanted to play tennis and i said what's tennis i thought i would probably wouldn't play because she played the country. Calm and my dad's a firefighter. Aside well this is an my realm of thinking. I've also played on the softball team and she told the coach. She'd taking me out to play tennis and she said oh they give free instruction here on tuesdays applied walker. And it's free coaching. While i go out to have my first session with clyde and at the end of it i knew i wanted to be the number one tessler in the world but then was amateur and i didn't like that because i grew up around pro sports pro met. You're really good at what you did and amateur. Music was a hobby so one of the first things. I wanted to change sport. As far as being a professional sport it were none really no options as a child for girls and today there's still many more options for boys. What really happened though. What really changed my life. My epiphany was when i was twelve. I was just daydream. One day and realize that everybody who played tennis for white shoes and white clothes play with white balls and everybody who played was white. And i asked myself whereas everybody else. Where is everyone else. So that was my moment that i dedicate the rest of my life to fighting for equality for everyone everything i've done. We'll go back to that moment. That epiphany twelve years old.

"You guys had a great story this week along with nick. Floor co about billy. Done the the regulator kind of at the heart of The helm controversy What did you guys find out about him as you were reporting this. Well what's interesting is we learned quite a bit. Because for anyone. Who's paid attention to this and might have cursorily google billie dunn. You'd find that there's very little information about him on the internet and so that was kind of the mountain that we're gazing up at As we embarked on this because as you mentioned he does seem to have emerged as really the key person at fda Who biogen identified as being you know willing to embrace their read of the very controversial data and that that set in motion the process by which the drug was eventually approved. And i think the narrative around the time of the approval and based on his comments at a public meeting last year was that he was really drinking the kool aid. That this guy you know maybe was kind of a mark for biogen. Maybe kind of went over his skis or listen to closely to patient advocates at the expense of the kind of rigorous view of data that one might expect from the fda. But what. I thought was interesting. Reporting it out and we talked to quite a few people who've worked with him whether add fda or At companies that had been before him or or in patient advocacy groups that have likewise met with him and would almost everybody said was that he built this reputation as a very stern and rigorous regular someone who demanded very clean very compelling data from treatments. That might win approval before even considering them in the sense that it gave him a lot of respect among his colleagues at fda and in some cases it really frustrated or even angered patient advocates. Who thought that you know for diseases like ls for example where there are so few options that he should ease up on that standard and so in those conversations that i think we had our. You can speak to this eventually. You'd get too. So what do you think of the agile. Home approval and people seemed kind of baffled. The a lot of people said like that's not the billy done. I know i remain confused. As to how he was won over by this data set from biogen. When i know him as a person who takes a completely different approach to regulating new drugs.

The 2021 Oscars' Best Original Song Nominees

"Get to this year's oscar nominated songs in a minute but before we weigh in on those songs and their chances. Stephen can you talk a little bit about the common themes we've seen from some of the oscar winners and nominees of the last few years. Well each year this category has been a different kind of mixed bag. Depending on what sort of movies are coming out. In a given year you often have a song or more from disney musical. You often have a song from a big blockbusters like all stars from black panther from a couple years ago. Big songs from big movies often wind up making their way into these nominations. And then they'll be mixed in with. Sometimes it's a song you've never heard of by an artist you've never heard of from a movie you've never heard of so. It really is a very very mixed bag from year to year with some recurring themes diane. Warren is very often nominated as a songwriter very often. Especially in recent years. You have a lot of songs that i call for lack of a better term. Glory corn so named for the song. Glory by common and john legend from movie. Selma a few years ago songs that play over the closing credits of movies about social justice all of which have titles that kind of together to form this. I will rise and fight and raise my voice to stand for you and so this year is a little bit of an unusual year for a bunch of obvious reasons. Many of them related to the pandemic. You didn't have a big disney musical so you didn't have a let it go into the unknown big disney banger. And you didn't have a lot of blockbusters you didn't have for example. No time to die. The james bond movie which had a theme song by billie eilish which came out which was pretty well received. And i think would have been a shoe in at least to be nominated and probably win. Had the movie actually come out and thus been eligible so that has kind of opened this year's field to what has turned out to be a whole lot of glory.
