"Blockbuster video in the world is in Bend, Oregon, still have one I heard about what you've told us about this. I believe yes. So it looks like that Blockbuster store in Bend, Oregon next month. They're going to do I think it's a contest. I'm not sure if they're doing this is let me see here. Anyway, Here's what they're doing. The owners of the last blockbuster are goingto they've set up. A room in the blockbuster video store to look like a room from the nineties, which includes Not a wide screen TV. Oh, a VCR. A beanbag chair, a pullout couch. They're going to provide candy and snacks. They're going to actually Airbnb the room and you'll have access to all the movies. They have their available for rental. So you can go stay there for a night. And you know what? It's not only genius, but it's neat because what they say here is that it's only for the people in the area. It's just for bend, Oregon, at least for now. But the manager of the store Sandy Harding, has been there since. 04 says. The only reason we're still in business is because this community goes out of its way to keep renting movies from us even though there's a 1,000,000 other ways to get movies. They continue to come here and support this store and keep us in business. And this is our give back so They're going to rent the place out. For $4 a night. Oh, it's a regular rental price, which is the price of a rent renting one movie there. It's an Airbnb. Ah! They're going to do this for three separate nights next month. Families who want it, which I think it's people will want this right. I think so. It would certainly be a story you could tell if only if only you could rent that every night for $4 a night. That's that's affordable living right there.

"Okay. Yeah, I'm fine. Pretty freaking far from OK. Are you OK with this hammer, Nigel? Did you see this? This is I've been dying to know what you think about this because you're a baseball guy. Love Major League Baseball kids play baseball, But you know these Corona virus time for playing in. There's been several Protocols, you know, instilled in Major League baseball like you have to. These players have to follow these. These Koven rules to a T. But the Cleveland Indians, they have had a couple pitch pitchers violated team rules by leaving their Chicago hotel room Saturday. Could go drinking, and now they're quarantined and can't play. Are you okay with this? I am not okay with this because Major League baseball They put their players on the honor system right? They didn't do the bubble. The players didn't want a bubble because the commissioner was open to it. There was originally a plan to go down to Arizona, where all the spring training facilities were and they were going to have like a bubble similar to the MBA. But the player said, no, That's ridiculous. You could trust us. Come on. So, the major league Baseball commissioner said. Okay, we're going to trust you were not going to have fans. We're going to play in your home ballparks. Just don't go out and do anything stupid. So what you've seen so far is players going out to the strip Club players going out drinking these Cleveland Indians guy? Excuse May They went out on the road, so they were in Chicago to play the White Sox and a couple pitchers Clevinger and play sack and play sack, I believe is a ball state guy. They kind of snuck out and they went boozing it up in shy town, and then they tried to cover it up. Well, now they got busted for it. And some of their teammates are like, Hey, thanks Dumb ass Now, you might have gotten us all sick with Verona. You went bar hopping in Chicago of all places. So they're gonna have to test these two players test the entire team and one of their teammates. His name is Adam Plutko. He's a fellow pitcher. Quote. They heard us bad. They lied to us. They sat here in front of you guys and said things publicly. They did not fall through on. It's going to be up to them. It really is okay with that response from fellow teammate Keep that in house. I think you keep that in house a little bit, even if you feel that way, even if you feel that way, I think if you ask most ballplayers, they'll say, just to say the right thing and address that behind closed doors, But that's just my opinion. Why don't we ask Cleveland Indians manager Lou Brown and by the way, is no longer the manager of the Cleveland Indians. Nor was he ever All right. The reason study ranked the most attractive states by looking at things like how in shape people are and how much Googling we do when it comes to our hair, clothes and grooming. Jersey, ranked first, followed by Hawaii in California. Now hammer the states at the bottom of this list. Mississippi, Missouri. Obama, Arkansas, South Carolina. The SEC, are you okay? Ah, no, I'm not okay with this. Any list about beautiful people that starts with New Jersey, followed by California and Hawaii isn't worth the paper that have printed on Have you ever seen a single episode of the Jersey Shore and sold those fake tan? Just ridiculous people? We've seen mob movies people from Jersey There is no way in blue Hell that the number one seed of all the 50 states of beautiful people is New Jersey. J well was hot. I'm sorry. Chris Christie. He's from New Jersey. Did Chris Christie's hot I'll Tell you what. Why don't we have some words of wisdom from our good friend Chris Christie. Words of wisdom with Chris Christie, Your critics call you a hothead. Do you need anger management? Shut up words of wisdom with Chris Christie in the state where Chris Christie is the face of your political system. You are not a beautiful state. I'm not bashing Chris Christie. But don't tell me that the people in Jersey are hotter. Then California and Hawaii. I hate California with every fiber of my being. But the one thing they're good at is putting out some hot piece is a tale. Miss Christie, By the way, added to Trump's Ah debate prep team should be interesting here in the next couple of months. Ah Hammer, the Let the last blockbuster in the world blockbuster movie rentals. You know how you people used to go places that rent movies that the last blockbuster in the world Is in Oregon, and it's turning itself into an Airbnb for three nights next month. Three families will get to stay overnight. In the blockbuster and watch as many movies as they want, and they're only charging $4 a night, But you have to live in the area to apply, and the manager says they just wanted to do something fun for the community to thank them for keeping them in business. If you close your eyes and think about the 90 was, that's what the room's gonna look like a lot more fun way to do that than a chemin experience. A night in Blockbuster, have a sleepover have the old big console television have the VCR? Had the popcorn have the whole experience like we did in the nineties? You? Yes. I'm okay with this. I hate the fact that you have to be in Oregon resident Tio take part in this. I think Blockbuster reminds a lot of people of a happier time. Right going up, growing up being excited to go to the video store. Look, take a three men and a baby available. There's only one left. Grab it. Yes, This is great, and the fact that you actually get the watch movies in the blockbuster That's even better because at first I thought they were just doing like a themed hotel. You know the blockbuster sign and posters. But if you're telling me it's like a legit blockbuster with all the movies and the VCR's and all that crap I'm in. I think that sounds incredibly fun. Not seeing the actual plastic VCR videotape holder behind the movie you want to rent was just devastating, like when Ghostbusters first came out. I'd go to my old man's in a weekend, Dad, Let's go get Ghostbusters, like get Ghostbusters and we show up to the movie store, And there was none of those behind. It was just It was just the cover of Ghostbusters and nothing behind it. Devastating. That was the worst. And you started to hate the employees because, you know, there was a copy of Ghostbusters that somebody to return in the big Ben. But they haven't gone through it yet. They're too lazy to work. Remember that I used to find you for not rewinding the movie 50 cent surcharge. If you Turn the movie and it wasn't really Joe Hawk sent league blockbuster. That sounds like something he would do. I'm real tough if you have a re well that videotape, But if you burn down this building, you're going to be fine. Um, one more here. We got one more day One more day. Have some mood music.

Big Ten and Pac-12 postpone 2020 football, pushing the college sport closer to total fall shutdown

"The most historic and powerful conferences in college athletics. Given up on false sports, the big ten and PAC twelve postponed their fall seasons. This is a big deal, not just because of sports as the New York Times explains big football programs in those conferences, -versities recruit students and attracted donations even though college football is a multibillion dollar industry, it's apparently no match for the corona virus. The conferences say they're worried about the health of their players and they point out the can't just put them in a bubble like some professional sports leagues are doing. That's because the players still. Still have to go to class with other students and be part of the broader campus community that said, the conferences are hoping to hold their football soccer and other seasons in the spring instead. So this'll be shaking up hundred million dollar TV contracts and scouting deals with the pros remember to other smaller conferences also backed away from fall sports over the last few days. All in all the AP says, forty percent of major college football teams will not be playing this fall and more are still expected to bow out.

"You could sleep over inside a blockbuster free rein on all the tests. I mean, that's a dream. That's a that is a dream. I mean, the next best thing would be a family owned video place because they get the uncensored versions of R rated movie. Yeah, that's the thing is, I don't know, but I don't know does does the bend Oregon location? I think we've asked before. Since they're not part of the major blockbuster chain anymore. Maybe they maybe they kind of get a little risque with some of the choices. Maybe I remember all blood Buster's When I found out that they carried our Censored versions of R rated movies. It drove me nuts without even telling you, like the copy of 9.5 weeks that you would rent at Blockbuster was not the theatrical release of 9.5 weeks. It was 9/2 weeks with some of the really graphic dirty parts cut out. Yeah, that would do they would do that. Have you ever heard of a movie called Sweet Sweetback? I think that's the name of it because I got that it probably aged 13 from a blockbuster. So that's a Mario van people's data, I think. Well, the first scene is like a young like 10 year old boy having sex with a woman. And and I rented this as like, 12 or 13 and my mom went up to the blockbuster just throwing a fit, saying that they rented this child porn, which I'm not certain that they didn't I wonder what the kids Ah, movie blockbuster. Oh, yeah, like it's probably 20 minutes long. I gotta watch that does you don't No one ever. It's not worth it, Um, like the pain, the pain. It's just such an emotionally rough movie to watch. It's a great movie. I watched that in a screening for the media at the ends EON Theater. There are about 25 to 30 of us, and when it was over, there were four of us. Media members walked out of it because it was that wrong, like what is what is wrong about it like I know the gist, and it's sad and stuff. But like a ce faras, the content that really going to get you right. Is that people dying? Is it sex? Is it worse? It is people dying in that sex. It is ah, the the main character Ah, walking around town and intentionally giving AIDS. To a virgin like a 13 year old version. Like he he gets off on on and on deflowering virgins. Oh, wow. And Ah and he Ah! He gives her aides like a man, and that's like, so his whole the whole movie is him planning to give her aides or like she gets AIDS in the beginning, and then you're just following her a journey. I don't think it happens in the beginning, but yeah, it is John. It is a rough rough movie to watch. This is from movie Casper. The friendly ghost. Casper was he was he was on the wire. You know the white boy that that Bubs kind of takes in in the wire? Not very well. I only remember Bubs from Kingdom in his time hanging out with Alvey drinking purple Drink. Great soundtrack, by the way, Beastie Boys, Daniel Johnson Folk implosion. Ah, but they it was. It's just a really rough movie to watch some violence, irresponsible sex and it'll it'll. It'll wreck your soul. But it's really well done. Kind of reminds me of that Requiem for a dream..

"As an engineer Steven Lamb designed navy torpedoes satellite carrying Rookus oil rigs special effects for Hollywood blockbusters films like saving. Private Ryan. Ryan's just to name. Finding him. So even though homes that earns me the right to get back to my wife and. That's my mission. To. Remove your helmet and tell me Your name. Name is gladiator. I will have my venues. Generous with his time he proved that so many times when he was working at solar giving up his time for free. After the lectures were over. With students who needed that extra tuition, he joined university as a part time lecturer in special effects and mechanical engineering. And he really does turn dry boring lectures because I've definitely sat through some lectures which are quite boring into exciting practical demonstrations. And is it true that you constructed a fake Russian tank and it was used on the streets of Saint Petersburg James Bond movie. Goldeneye? Yes, we did. Yeah. We did that. How did that come about? Because the Russians didn't WanNA. Wheel tank driving over the cobblestones. Smashing cobblestones up around the Mojica Palace. So we built a tank like a kid's toy which rubber tracks and underneath had wheels. So we'll take but not break anything and how did you get into the James Bond movie. To supply. Thanks. Okay, the power of tanks they you got the PUTT supplied. All, the military vehicles for Saving Private Ryan. Was Elvis choice for the James Bond Films. Thank you a sexist misogynist dinosaur relative to. James. WAISTBAND. Like boys with toys. I wouldn't single. Chatting, sophisticated secret agent shaken but not to stir, we're actually by the river. In Winchester as the people won't buy on a sunny August stay. And a lot of people didn't about you. Thank you very much for joining us software pleasure because of that private lunch last year. So perhaps you could set the record straight firstly in what context did you say the words Jewish people are among? The cleverest in the world. It came up in conversation. About Physics I've always an interest since I was a boy in astrophysics. because. I couldn't believe that one hundred years ago almost. Albert Einstein we're talking about such abstract subjects as light being affected by gravity. And he works out the speed of light, which was a phenomenal thing to do in the nineteen twenties. How did this man come to realizations about what actually control the will then what does control the world? And the whole universe that we live in? So. My interest was based on this philosophy. On physics. And when the lady Mico sleater told me that she was a qualified physicist and she was American. It was almost involuntary question for me to Oscar. She was Jewish and again, this was a private lunch at a private lynch over Cup of coffee. Now, it was also reported to say that you said that black men on the privileged needle help that they can get. Yes. I did say that. Because I've worked all over the world of work in Africa I worked in South Africa Mozambique worked in North Africa. And I realized that a lot of people in Africa are culturally disadvantaged. Cheaper to anybody else. But. The coach or they grow up in doesn't give them the advantages that we have in the West. And therefore, I was always prepared to give them extra help. In addition to this, it was reported in the Times by Phillips that you told Dr Burner. Most Nigerians did not have it in their DNA to be engineers. Is this true? Absolutely not true. This was one of the spiteful comments made by my course. Lita. In a fifth of of temper to get me set knowing. It would certainly get me ten. She also alleged other city things. Like that I was a totalitarian. Does, one become a totalitarian over coffee break. Did you say anything about DNA and African students I said nothing about ten not not an area of expertise of mine. I know nothing about it I only know that gets us by the police. In various reports, you read in the papers on I know nothing about DNA.

"I'm series Creator Matt Schrader Hey, I'm the sound designer Peter Bobby, and this is our creator chat about episode eight. You just heard from blockbuster the story of James Cameron. During production, we called this the underwater episode and sound design in this one is just superb. I it's a big one because we opened up the season with the submarine with the dive, but that was just the first three or four minutes of the episode and that was it. But now we come back and I have this timetable of the whole show alternate episodes and I always saw episode as this is a big red blob because it's so complicated. We're in the submarine for you know, twenty five minutes and it's a lot of work to make it interesting and to make it claustrophobic right? Because we're plunging twelve and a half thousand feet. Yep. Three point eight kilometers an into the middle of the contain Atlantic Ocean, right and we wanted to. Put everyone in the submarine as much as we could on a podcast format, there's obviously the sound of kind of underwater sound but also there in submarine, lots of lots of things are happening. You've got the submarine you've got the engines you've got the ventilation system. Yuga buttons, beeps all the crash. A lot of things are happening in there and you know dialogue ends a piling on itself in moments of panic and when you say dialogue piling. On itself. You're talking about it act the way that if you're in a very small space, you'll actually feel you know the sound waves will do something differently. 'cause they're bouncing off of of everything that's so close around you. Yeah. It's kind of like you know when you get in a car and it sounds slightly different now while some arenas worse because it barely has any soft material, it's basic I'll metal up. So just becomes the psych. Resonant Chamber and you just keep on hearing your own reflections and it just keeps on building up on you and it's very intimidating psychologically, and one of the things I found most interesting about these dives was how grueling the whole experience was really wore them down twenty five days at sea. A dozen dives with these state of the art cameras that are designed just for this. So obviously, there's a lot of maintenance and staying on top of those and the lights that they build for this and Snoop Dogg there about remote operated vehicle that they have on tether James Actually kept a diary of this and something referenced. By Journalists Paula Paryski for wired magazine in one, thousand, nine, hundred eight, and it was fascinating among his observations from his dives. He said there are no icebergs at this time is September on the way down James Concerned about the Lai towers holding up and Russian pilot Anatoly you heard in the episode is counting down the distance to the ocean floor as they get near, they bought them out at twelve, thousand, five, hundred, eighty feet below level and they really have trouble finding titanic. This new sonar system they installed isn't working. So they have to rely on the old technology, old nineteen sixties technology and then this quote from James. Anatoly parks us on the bottom I look out my port, which is small and candid slightly to the side and six feet ahead. There's a big steel wall with rivets on it I know it's not the whole because it's got a jagged edge on the walls just plunged their into the bottom I don't even have time to react because we're drifting sideways and we're about to hit it. and. Then he writes I go from not seeing it not seeing it not seeing it to seeing a wall of rivets too pure adrenaline being out of control and slamming down it's it's so much adrenaline and to be able to do it you know just sonically right nothing nothing nothing slam it. It's a really. Cool audio experience that we were able to create right there that that moment of nothing too huge boom Al getting's you heard in the episode made many of those guys with James and he he recounts these bonus interview for this episode. I. Went Up to Northern California to visit him at his house and He showed me some of the housing systems that they built, which still are extremely impressive. The most rugged pieces of this you know soldered metal you'll ever see built to in case cameras at that depth and these things were he let me pick trying to pick up one of these. Camera housings and even without the camera in it, it's just insanely heavy. So I'll talk about the unusually strong hurricane season made this. You know made the ocean currents much less predictable and recounted his fear of getting stuck or worse crashing into the jagged metal wreckage and and puncturing the sub. Thankfully, that's not what happened because they were. Pretty. In a different situation than we are nowadays because they were shooting on film yeah. Obviously film is still used in cinema. But they as they were diving didn't know one hundred percent what they were getting. So it wasn't until when towards the end of their whole adventure that they started getting back the film, the footage that was developed at it what a surreal thing to to be on your own you know there's nothing else anywhere around you the middle of the ocean and have this plane appear from nowhere and and make a drop of a cargo package and and there's actually video this which we are putting on some of our social media channels you could follow blockbuster pod on facebook instagram twitter, but there's video. Of. The plane making the drop and these things you know them starting to to pull out the film for this and you're right now getting said that when he saw the film footage was better than he expected and he knew it was it was good in the first place he was underwater cinematographer.

Ross. Some. Action. So he could also party in our podcast that was fun but yeah, I think that story. Wise. It's really interesting because James comes away with this enormous sense of responsibility for this project right? Because he's really in the perfect position where the studio was willing to give him money for all this film and he ends up making this hybrid, a romance which he hasn't done before. If you look at at all the movies that he's done, but he fuses it with his passion for science storytelling, right? So he has this hybrid project, which is, I think for the first time, he might have literally just felt this fire like this is the big one and probably that's why pushed the project into becoming one one of the biggest movies of aid and it was his. Potential and you can also see how you could screw something like that up.

Black Girls In Gaming

"Thank you so much for joining us today Melissa. Thank you for having me. Excited to chat about this metoo. So can you just tell us a little bit about your background? Melissa. How did you find space for yourself a gaming? Well I playing games, my entire life I mean literally as soon as I could hold a controller in my hands, I've been playing with my cousins in my aunts baseman mostly fighting games you pass the controller around tournament style and eventually evolved to playing other games with my siblings growing up I have a brother and a sister, and I think the invention of the Nintendo sixty four is probably the greatest thing that ever happened to ask because it allowed all three of us to play at the same time. which most other consoles didn't do before that. My Daddy is to get used consuls, `electronic stories and we read games blockbuster and we'd all play together and my mom daddy's to watch us in times personally I on us but also partially because they were just curious and interested about games gaming, they both Geeks, they love comics, all kinds of things like that. But. I never actually imagined myself working in games I never really thought about the people who behind the Games who actually made them. So I actually intended to become a researcher public health researcher and work either in academia or at the federal government doing health research that was going to advance programs that would help support people of Color and people from Lgbtq community is substance abuse trickiest mental health. So that's actually how I started my career. I went got my PhD in a field called socio medical sciences, which is a combination of social psychology in. Public. Health. And I did that research for while it looked at drug use and mental health and people of Color HIV risk behavior, and I enjoyed answering these questions that helped people like I love being able to ask an answer my own questions that I thought would really have a difference, make a difference in the communities of color that were like heavily impacted by some of these issues. But one of the things that always nickel that me a little bit was the amount of time that it took for the research insights that I came up with to turn into action. If. You've ever interacted with you know that you know it can take a couple of years to go from the beginning of a research project into just a paper, much less any kind of program out of it and I wanted to see more immediate impact with my work. So I started looking for other careers could use my skills as a researcher have a more immediate impact but I could see coming out days or weeks rather than. In measured in years so I started looking into user experience research and technology but again, I didn't really focus on game specifically. I was just looking at tech in general. And I found this job at xbox Microsoft websites literally just by chance I didn't know anybody at Microsoft I didn't have any like network my way in or anything the closest connection I hadn't seen somebody speaking Pan on American Psychological Association conference WHO's on my team but I was like, wow, that sounds awesome. I WanNa to do that. They'll probably never hire me because I'm coming from a completely different field, but I was wrong and he did. And that's how I ended up here. It was kind of a winding path and a little bit of a nontraditional wide but really loving and enjoying experience of being able to make gains and see what I, call it my fingerprints on all of these different projects and games they've gotten the chance to work on. It is such a cool story and you know really speaks to why I often described psychology as like this field that really opens all these other doors for you because I feel like it just lends itself to doing that only one thing but lots of different things Yup i. think that's absolutely true and ideally volunteer college admission advising, and that's what I tell the students that I work with all the time I'm like you determine where You Go and you can learn a lots of different skills and other things that will help you get to field. There's lots of different ways that you can turn lots of different majors and they're such a need for people who understand social science and how people think and behave and interact with each other So I'm curious to hear a little bit more about how your mental health background now informs the work that you do in gaming. Absolutely. So there's kind of two sides to it. There's a research methods side, and then there's the actual content of mental hall. So briefly, a lot of the methods that I learned in graduate school that I used when I was doing research on mental health I now use the same ones when I'm in research on video games and people's here's all that research training that you get is going to be useful no matter where you go and it's even useful when I'm not doing direct research because. It influences the way that I think about things I take scientific lens to approach things

I start reading I, put down Mike I'm good with that, and this one was as they say in the business, the proverbial page Turner, I was absolutely riveted by this book I. Loved It from start to finish. I couldn't put it down. Down I know it's been out for a little bit but you can always get the word out. Still this book is called hard to handle the life and death of the Black Crowes and it is written by the Black Crowes Drummer. Steve. Gorman who joins me right now Steve Pleasure to talk to you. Thanks for taking the time to do this. You know I find that. Promote books real hard like the first couple of weeks that they're out, and then some people get around to reading them late like I do. So it never hurts to give it another spin. So I appreciate you taking the time. Oh. Man. No worries. Thank you I. I, never looked at it as a You know it's not a single for radio. You know what I mean I. I don't know when I don't have my second book started yet. But not exactly like I'm hurrying through this. What now this? I. Think I got one book in May and this is it. So I'll be talking about for a while. Well, you had told me just before we started rolling the recording here that this book when you actually wrote, it was originally more than double the amount of patients that came out. Close to three times, actually, it was Well, I guess the three fifty and I turned in just under nine fifty. So yeah, two and a half times at least. And it. Was it was it was it was great. 'cause I my deadline Halloween of eighteen and I turned it in on that day. Not One day soon and I sent it in for the publisher and he wrote back immediately like how man great work you did. It congratulations. That's awesome and ten minutes later after it open, the file is next email was what the fuck is this. What's wrong with you? What are you crazy like I didn't think about things like this. For example, the cost of printing a nine hundred page book. He goes. What do you want to sell a book for eighty dollars and I was like oh? Yeah. That's how this work. It's not unlike record. Basically, I wrote a triple album out of the gate and he was like, yeah, too much too much. Well, you could have done. Well, here's the thing for me like you. So hearing that is having done a couple books myself. Not An autobiography I'm still working on that, but having done a few I know about that editing process and it could be agonizing as an author because you feel like everything you put in, there is really good and should be included and is a big part of the story. So did you leave it to them to do the tough cuts or did you have to dig into it and really do some self editing? Well Eddie to that point. I. Believe I'm the first person who said this is nine hundred and fifty pages of pure gold. Yeah Now, we'll see that's my partner. Steven Hyden the simplest way to describe what he did. With I. I wrote the songs and he produced the album and what I mean by that, we got together ahead of time and we just established the timelines together like I. We talked it through. I have a very linear chronological memory and we started with me moving to Atlanta and he just led me like breadcrumbs through the whole story and we. It was just conversations where we recorded by cowling of the the art like this happened this, the the met them and. So I had. So we put together like forty chapters of my my audio breadcrumbs for me to venues to go right the story, keep me on a on a linear path in writing. And so that was hugely important and then, but I went I wasn't wrote the thing, and then when it was all said and done as I was finishing chapters, I'd son the Stephen. and. He was aware of the fact as I was writing it this way longer than anybody's expecting and probably longer than any was gonNA. WanNa publish. So in his mind, he was I think already. Paying attention to the overall narrative arc and looking at things that don't necessarily move the story along, they might be funny or they might be crazy, but they don't. Keep the momentum going. So he had a really good overview from the minute I finished already in his head of what he thought could probably come out if need be and that was hugely important for me because when they told me go away and edit it you know the editor said I'm not gonNA edit this. You'll hate me why you guys gotTA. GotTa take the first path and so Steven Hyden was huge and that because he was able to speak to me talking me off of my perch of, but this is a blockbuster brilliant book. You know and he said, no, hang on the pitch stories are great. But four of them are all of similar. You know what? I mean. They're telling the same. In the grand scheme of things, you're kinda repeating themes and the reader doesn't need the readers. You know, give the reader credit. They know who the characters are real soon and they get your humor they get. Stuff deprecating, you don't have to keep going to those wells, blah blah blah, but he was instrumental in making me see. Where we go and I mean, it could have been edited a million different ways. But we came to this one really pretty quickly. You know I mean within a month or two. We had basically what you're reading, and then it was a matter of just the copy editing, which is where you pick every sentence apart. Make sure that the ten. Grammar. Jerk. You know I'm a real nerd for that stuff. So I I actually enjoyed. Tearing, apart, my own stream of consciousness writing and making sure the verb tenses. All matched up and all that kind of stuff.

He'd collect all this evidence of corruption. No one would actually go to jail to instead. Orlando put his creative energy into cooking. His sons sort of Foodie. and He loves food, says he loved not only planning the meals, but serving them is a person that you would invite to your house for dinner and he ends up taking the Apron and taking the the knife from you. And you're like. Hey, how're Landau? Invited you. The economic crisis in Venezuela it started years before, but by two thousand sixteen, the signs were obvious. There were shortages of almost everything and massive inflation, which meant that Orlando salary stayed the same, but the money Bob less and less, you see your salary, becoming solid and water every month and every week you go to the supermarket and price gets up and up and up. Orlando and KARLEENA would ask themselves. Should he leave and seek opportunity abroad? The so many of their friends had done. So many professionals and teachers and other civil servants had gone to Peru or Colombia Ecuador to find whatever work they could and send money home. It was easy to see that the country was getting empty. Every night when you see out of the window and you see just a couple of lights in the building that in front of you because the rest of the apartments are closed.

Why is it called Killing Tigers? Because it's so hard? I, don't know where the expression from because it's not easy to kill a tiger in my.

Less Ronnie our producers, etc piled, a newborn, took a drive down Hollywood's main drag. It's a traffic jam packed with billboards promoting new TV shows and movies. I've been covering the business of media for a long time, so I served as tour guide for this trip, but Ronnie is a data reporter who mainly writes about tech companies. She doesn't typically pay a lot of attention to what's going on in Hollywood. Here, we have a a the crown net flicks up on the right. Have you watched any of the crown yet? I have not. On the left we have marriage story billboard. This is a Scarlett Johansson. I don't think I want to watch that. You may not be the right person for streaming roddy in a row. We got the Irishman.

Someone like hermetically sealed raising. A drive down, sunset isn't just a chance for Ronnie to see what's coming on. TV, it's a way to watch Hollywood talking to itself, these billboards are messages which are very much directed at Hollywood except now. netflix's doing most of the talking. Stranger things net flix. The politician. Net flicks, one billboard tuna flexible work three Netflix. Netflix well years ago when Netflix was first getting into its own programming. Executive there told me that because they were tech company. They didn't have to do things that traditional media companies do like renting billboards, so it could show big-name talented netflix serious about Hollywood. That guy turns out was wrong. Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix. Even though that time was just a few years ago. If you didn't know any better, you'd think. Netflix's has always been a huge part of Hollywood. Syphilis can be fatal to your baby free.

You're like one of the big one of those big new media disruptors. Why did the entertainment industry need to be disrupted? Just for the fun of it. On this happened really quickly. We talked to Kim Masters veteran show business journalist at the Hollywood reporter who said that a decade ago Netflix's was an afterthought for big media companies newcomers from Silicon Valley or anywhere else did not strike fear in the hearts of moguls. There's a thing that happens in Hollywood. Which is the outsiders come in, and they think boy. There's a lot of stupid rules in Hollywood and people sure do dumb stuff, but we're going to be much smarter than these idiots, and then they get kilt. It turns out that Netflix was the exception to the rule. It didn't get killed at one. And NETFLIX's did it with Hollywood's help. You can trace all this back to two thousand eight, which is when Netflix's really broken into streaming by getting his hands on a bunch of blockbuster movies for a bargain, Ben, price, it had made a deal with stars premium cable channel.

Big Time Because he basically kind of had a heart attack didn't have a heart attack but had a heart attack and he was just pushing it so hard. No matter what I mean. Essentially people start turning against you. Also start making more enemies you you become aggressive. He put his own money his own wealth his relationship with his friends family. Right even with this wife on the line He was all in right. He was all in and he knew at that point. He saw that what he was creating. That was worth it. That vision was starting to take shape of something material and he knew he just had to push through it just the best possible version that he could have made at that point and I mean.

We're doing in podcast. Now that means you know I've always thought it's improving by one percent every time you know each time. Just just get a little bit better and then that one percent you know compounds if you know anything about how the math of that works and it's you know after two months of one percent every day you know. The podcast is is two hundred percent.

I think didn't about nine months for season. One of blockbuster You know that's a thousand percent ten times better than we originally had it And you know in some key. Filmmakers cases goes on for years of just trying to punch it up a little bit by bit by bit and their aim is really just to try to reach something. That's unattainable that idea of perfection. Oh Yeah and you know you go until it's perfect. If it can be a little bit better yeah take that take that every time it every time you know yeah. How many times did we nudged dialogue around? Well we never stop this and yeah. I think we were still doing that. We never stop doing that. We're nudging nudging all the time until we have you know scenes that we really love sees it make you feel yeah that make us feel and we hope that makes our audience. Feel too right and with the guiding principle of like. Let's just get this one percent better and sometimes you look out and it's ten percent better and you think wow we really. We really found it here but But just I if every move you make will improve it a little bit. You're eventually going to get there. But our challenges really in fixing everything that we noticed that can be improved. And it's about making those moments powerful making it matter and at the same time giving it a feeling of perfect where you come away with creative product.

"Now back to the episode. And you know when we first started out filming interviews for score that the documentary the feature documentary you know. I didn't know anyone who is a film composer. Of course you know the first question. Everybody and their agent has when you email them or you call them. They say who else is participating and no one wants to be in it if nobody else is is Is in it yet. And so there's always this question of like. How do you get that that I kind of critical mass to be able to actually say oh we have you know? Abcd that are all part of this and then that hopefully makes it a lot easier because people trust okay. If they're in it then this must be this must be legit. It was extraordinarily difficult to get the first interviews because our answer was no one yet but we hope to get you know such and such and then we have this laundry list of composers that we were hoping to get access to Who are way too busy to to sit down with US based on just some cold call to their offices and we had some people refuse it. I I remember one composer Who who shall not be named now but a very very famous composer who James noon Howard. No no it's not him But someone who Who got back. We have to cut this out. It was someone who just said. I'm just not that interested. How do you overcome that? That's where this action comes in our plan on score whiskey interview all of the people at the edge of this industry. I so we would start with the agents and managers and executives who could comment on film music history and evolution and hopefully lead us to one or two. You know real composers that we could interview after that and that strategy worked. We shot over Fifty interviews and all and it ended up being more than we needed and almost everyone made it into the final film but it was that action plan. That was the key to the whole documentary and it led us to this realization. That everyone who had doubted us Along the way. And you always think when you hear that there's always the the self-doubt of you know in my nuts for trying to do this because people are literally telling me no because I just don't want to and you know how do you rebound from that and And then at the end of this it's so satisfying if you're able to kind of power your way through that And will your way to to an end product and now a lot of these people. We had reached out to a really impressed that we'd pull it all off and we ended up inviting many of them to To the premiere screening also including some that we never actually ended up interviewing But they were then very supportive which was which was great so with blockbuster season one you know. We approached several podcasts networks. And it's a different relationship with you know a scripted. Podcast thing and it's a very new thing too so I don't know that there's necessarily a you know one right way to do this. But we approach several people early on We'd never made podcast before a scripted. Podcast and we knew we could probably figure it out but we need the right partners. Who believed in US and We approached several of the major podcast. Network's all of them had some issue with our style of storytelling. Or you know certain certain things that we were doing in a way that they were unfamiliar with You know if you think of podcasts. A lot of people still think of it as something that you you know record you talking about movies in your garage or true crime story or something along. Those lines and most companies have unscripted departments and then they have fiction departments and we were not fiction but also we weren't really documentary either. This wasn't us interviewing people about Steven. Spielberg this was US. Doing all of the research to be able to put together a story and tell it in kind of the most immersive inorganic way that we could. We could again that bio-pic model but none of these podcasts. Networks really knew how to do this one executive. I remember at a major network said to us. We just weren't feeling the format of the show we do. We don't think it'll work. You know so here. We are several months into developing the story of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. That we really like we find so kind of magical an inspirational and all of the people in this industry are saying it's a bad idea. Actually I just want to point out that we were much further than developing the story. Yeah I think we actually were like in like heavy in post production. So you know just pulled off this like you know. It is mini series but is pretty big as far as production post production goes and. It's very time consuming. So we'll put all of this money into it all of those resources all this work hours and then what we're hearing is like well you know we don't understand what this format as you know. What does the narrative pod how you know does the Mollard so different so you need like? We don't know what to do with this. We don't know how it's GONNA fit into our existing slate and things like this and that's pretty much the moment that comes right before the.

"I mean he was creating visual effects. No existing company could even do and sound effects and sound effects right but like he was especially hands on with the VIZ effects. I mean he was getting everyone how we're going to have this robotic arm cameras going to be on this is going to glide to the miniatures and ever and it was madness. I mean he had these ideas of how he would shoot star wars with the special effects. Nobody's ever done it before and no doubt about it. It's in books. Its history its point here was at the forefront of the revolution of visual effects. And the only way he knew how to west to set up his own operation to prove that method filmmaking actually works company is called industrial light and magic and they are basically the gold standard for special effects companies. That's right. There are great examples of interpreter ships throughout history of these concepts at play Where someone wanted to change things the way things were done in order to make better bigger you name it. But they needed to change the process to get a slightly different product out of it and changing the process is a very difficult thing especially when you're working in teams of people write. These inventions took years to catch on because they didn't have the complementary roles of our help them grow right right. So you know example. Edison's light bulb. Edison is responsible for you know the first commercially viable lightbulb. And this kind of new model of this is doing mentioned. It was met with criticism. It was people thought it was a stupid gimmick. It's terraces oil lamp. You know why this is ridiculous. You have a little filament involved. And you know what's wrong with the oil lamp and it took years before that idea caught on And the reason was the idea itself wasn't good enough to revolutionize it had to come with other things. Yeah and something that I'm as a sound person much more close to is the telephone itself. I mean in a way. The telephone was the kind of beginning of of sound transmission in a way as we know it. And so Alexander Graham Bell patented it in eighteen seventy six. He went out trying to sell his invention but everybody laughed him out like they did not understand why you would wanna do that. And this company called Western Union. They said it was too complex for an average person to us and that it wasn't a tool but a quote unquote toy. We're going to keep doing telegraphs. They said great love it. So let's do telegraphs right. And so he went to the biggest to the big boys in the big boys said absolutely now so Bellefield but instead of being the end of his story right the end of the story of the telephone He started his own company with the financial support of his father in law and a friend Thomas Sanders who was a leather merchant and who actually had experienced in one thing. That bell wasn't the best which was managing a small business right so he partnered up with someone who complemented what bell did in a way that would make this endeavor the telephone more feasible and so together. They scaled this operation up. They began leasing out telephones which they service themselves to right. Because you're essentially giving this device to people they can operated but sometimes they break and everything so they also service them and it course. It took years but eventually bell telephone company and the technology went onto really revolutionized communication over the next century. As we know it. Oh yeah and it not only became a revolution of its own but everything that we do nowadays whether it's the cell phone you're holding right or the Internet using there's a very high chance it's running over regular phone lines. I mean it became the backbone of our civilization communication. Everything that we're using right now during you know these. These corona virus has been enabled as a result of this of this partnership of two people And so just looking at the big picture. Bells idea was amazing. And he had a passion for this. He knew what he was doing in eighteen. Seventy six but that wasn't good enough because he didn't have the partners. He didn't have the support that he needed to make this a an actual feasible product. Right this Guy Thomas Sanders. Correct a leather merchant correct. So He's the Guy who knew how to run a business and passion became action. A Vision became an executed reality and that brings us to the next stage from any enterpreneurs. Yes using the haters to your advantage. The the second challenge here because once you get in to actually creating something you're going to be challenged..

"And some TV shows including Modern family He's won awards he's been nominated for a lot more and creatively. Peter is part innovator and part execution which will be important as we kind of detail. Some of the the ingredients that go into the recipe of of kind of building a small business. And he's from Poland. Yes yes I am from Poland any but really the approach for every single project every single movie every single story I tell is to approach it as interpreter as a business venture and to manage it with that mindset in what I do there's always an aspect A goal of making exciting fun. You can hear that in blockbuster when George. Lucas is holding the phone while John Williams is playing the star wars thing and we traveled through the phone line to Steven Spielberg listening on the other end But the other aspect is just trying to support the story. Tell tell with sound and sometimes there won't be narration or dialogue and we start drawing places events or feelings with sound but we try to build those pieces in a way. That's not confusing or disorienting. It might be the way someone walks right because we walk in different ways when we're excited or how George. Fumbles with paper and pen when he's coming up with the names of all the characters of Star Wars and so we hear those hesitations in the pencil right those little things but they're never undermining.

"Is Ryan Talbert, one of the composers of blockbusters original music, and this match Schrader creator and narrator of blockbuster. Each week. We are discussing a little piece of the creative process of making each episode. End today, talking about a topic that's close to my heart incredible original score from Ryan Tabart, and Benjamin Botkin and Ryan is here, and Ryan when we met, making score film music documentary you came on as composer of that film. And I remember you saying, oh, great. So I have to write music to follow up the greatest hits of Hants immer. What did you think when I asked you, if you'd score a series Williams, that has to be one of maybe one of the most timid timid eating things that projects composer can agree to? Yeah. I mean, the best, I guess, at the end of the day, I just figured. Well, you know, I can only do my best, a very musical episode. And one of the things about John Williams music, specifically is there's so many themes and motifs that are layered, a lot of character themes, a lot of that was something that we talked about early on kind of having a motif driven approach theme driven approach, where each character had a theme for me, just started with understanding their story understanding a little bit about their personalities you know, just had said down with Pia. No. And I tried to, I guess, walk in the shoes of the characters or get into their personalities the George Lucas theme. I wanted to go with something that felt something that almost has child light since fantasy in a way. But, but also guest element of sophistication, Ella tons. I just start with humming something in my head. If it's easy to home than soon that will be easy to orchestrate and sound good with the orchestra, you are one of the two composers, who created the musical heartbeat here and Benjamin. Botkin. The other composer, really helped tap into the John Williams sound for me. It's a feeling there's almost certain bounciness to the orchestration. There's a softer touch to certain things as opposed to going full rock and roll with the. Orchestra every musician fills like they're doing something important. They get to have their voice on certain moments rather than just kind of blending in the whole time. That's really interesting. Yeah, yeah, I in the creates a certain feeling it feels like every musician is playing something apart that feels important for them and important to the whole peace, Benjamin's based in Nashville, you're based here in Los Angeles. What was the working relationship like it was very back and forth? It requires a lot of work to get that kind of sound. And he would I would send stuff his way he would change a few things around, then he would send it back. I would change a few things around. Yeah. Until two it sounded like something that suited the project in sounded convincing composer of blockbuster. Thanks for sitting down to chat. Thank you. No problem.

"And you actually can hear some of that stuff in the podcast a lot of is just from sound effects, libraries, and and a lot of it was recorded for this podcast where we were like, okay. This is what we're going to do. I actually think actually one of my favorite sounds that. I recorded that's in the series. I was gonna ask you this next. You know, which one I think so well, I don't wanna spoil that because I'm going to probably say shitty. I'm actually curious we're going to cut this out. But what do you think it was was it the moon, the stargazing sound, oh, the vortex vortex reverse the one of my favorite sounds actually that I recorded accidentally once although not accidentally because I knew they happen in as a kid. I've heard them is. If you go. Oh. At an airport about a mile under maybe less than a mile half a mile under the flight path, the landing path of an airplane about a minute after the plane passes over your head and. You hear the air vortex? The wave of air crashing back at each other which was before pushed away by the airplane and just creates this really interesting. Sound which would not expect after seven four seven because it's so tender, and that's something we used in the stargazing scene. And it's something that reported in seeing the the meteor shower I recorded this last year, I spent an entire day eating out burger in the car. Yeah. On Tari airport just microphone on the roof.

"Bobby the sound designer and editor of blockbuster, and I match raider creator and narrator of the series and welcome to this behind the scenes conversation. Peter we're here again about this episode. You just heard maybe are our most intense episode yet and each week, we're discussing a little piece of the creative process. And I'm here in the studio of Peter, Bobby. It's where all of this sound design and mixing or a lot of at least happened that emergency room scene at the end of the episode. We just heard I remember we were sitting right here in your studio at one point back back in the fall and going through the episodes early on might have been the table reads, and your eyes lit up, and you said, let's do all sound design. Let's do a montage here. Well, we knew that Ryan Ben are going to provide us with incredible score. From the beginning. We've worked with Ryan before on actually score the film music documentary. So. Where I was the mixer, and you know, we we knew that they're going to provide some terrific material. So I kind of felt immediately from the start that that scene, and there were certain scenes that it would be great not to have any music on them. But instead established that there is actually some kind of sound language to the entire series and very early on. When I think when we were actually doing the table reads, I was in the studio while everyone was reading, and I was just taking notes to myself like this is a nice moment for music, and this is a nice moment for sound design. Yeah. To actually, and that's what we we've achieved because we tried to have what at least one segment one section where it was just driven by sound. Right. Can you talk about how you were able to collect all of these sounds because we have one hundred eighty tracks. That were we were using the one thing that it's base. It's surprising because we thought going into it. We knew it's going to be big. But as a podcast like I didn't expect. To go to to attract count equal to like, a I dunno. Indie feature. You know what? Indie features will have they'll have like two hundred tracks or so of audio on a final makes. And here we are doing a podcast at has so many tracks, and we're like, well, we kind of need them. It's an overkill it's like we really need because we've got a lot of categories. We've got all the dialogue all the loop groups, although although archival stuff, we've got all the design elements all the fully all the background. So it was like a lot of material and that just together makes one one big one big podcast. I hope how much of that was were materials. You were sounds. You were able to find somewhere versus sounds that were recorded because obviously all the dialogue is things that we did a lot of the Sound's. Also, though are sounds that you or I or someone else recorded at some point. Yeah. I mean as a sound person, I wherever I go. I always go with my microphones are kind of my right? And and like microphone is always. With me. So it's like I have my own library, which I've been creating over the years of working in the film industry of everything all the way from insects and Malibu two wins in the Grand Canyon..

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or support us at get blockbuster dot com. Thanks for listening to blockbuster. I'm max middlemen. I play Steven Spielberg in blockbuster. And I matched writer creator of the series. Welcome to this third installment of our behind the scenes conversations. And we're now at the halfway point of this six part series. And we hope you're enjoying the story as it's beginning to get a little more intense. And max this episode starts off with Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese riding around New York to look at people lining up for jaws, and it was one of those cool moments. You almost don't believe really happened. But at the same time Spielberg was just getting his first taste of fame. How did you try to embody the inner excitement of the young Spielberg? Well, I feel like no matter who you are you can relate to Spielberg in some way, it's cool because Spielberg is not a fictional character. He's a real person with real emotions Spielberg was a guy who always exuded passion. And even when he was young and inexperienced. And I was an am the same way, you know, the early troubles on jaws. Really absolutely devastated him. And he wasn't sure he'd ever work again. You know, the scene where he's driving around New York looking at the lines in the theaters for jaws. I wanted to embody the joy of that moment for Stephen and the the high that he was writing at the time. And of course, we get to see the start of Stephen success with John Williams too. And in this episode. He wins the Oscar, and then Stephen, of course, ambitious as he is wants to get right back into his next movie and make music essential part of it. Yeah. How cool is it that, you know, you John Williams music? He feels like is such a great part of why that movie was successful. And so on jaws, right? You know, he credits John for saving that film. And he never had any idea that John would wanna do something. Like, the the to note jaws theme, which is super ambitious and kind of very risky and it worked so. Well that Stephen wanted his music to be part of. Story for close encounters of the third kind and we hear during that spotting session or they're trying to find the, you know, the five notes this time that became the female of that of that movie. And it's a really cool moment because these are events that actually happened in the they really did go through hundreds of different combinations of notes together to find the perfect combination. And and and that's that's awesome. And speaking of of aliens toward the end of this episode. There's a scene where Stevens crew is stargazing. And they're pretty sure they see a real UFO in the sky. Yeah. Oh, we don't know it, you know, that's was that real that's real life blending with fantasy. We'll never know if that was something that was really out there or not. But it's cool that it's cool to think that that inspired Stephen in a way, and that that had an impact on on making his movies and one of those weird coincidences too. You know because it scared the crew a little bit because there was this thing hovering, and it's documented in a great book by Ray Morton about the making of that movie close encounters, but he said that it it was determined to be a satellite, but to satellite just hover there. It's it's a little odd and made weirder by the fact that NASA started taking an interest in in Stevens film after that too. Right. Right. Was was that was that a government scheme just to make good movies? Was that who does Stephen could be an alien. And and that would explain why his movies are so good will never know. Lastly max. We enter the final three episodes of this series. You're pretty good friends with Ray chase who plays George Lucas in this series, and we recorded you guys together. So we could kind of tap into that friendship and artistic report that Stephen and George had for each other. What did you feel like that brought to this story? I think it's really important for everyone to have a friend like that. And especially in the entertainment industry where there are no guarantees that you'll be successful. And you know, there's very little security right on the odds are always again, you when you do have a failure. It's really important to have someone to talk to and to lean on and to lift you back up and let you know that that's that's not the end of your career. And this is a story of the friendship between Stephen and George and how they support each other. Even through some of the worst film productions that really got out of hand and studios wanted to pull the plug on. And it was this. Tip that inspired them to keep going. And and Stephen and George both believed in the idea of a blockbuster film model right with your Matic and mythological elements that would. Sort of appeal to massive audiences and that was brand new at the time. And it might not have happened. If not for their good friendship. So I think that's so important. Really?
