"It is really such an, because we all were like, this play is so boring and that's, but we didn't get the, once you get to the third act, you look back and realize how precious it was. We just thought, this is boring and then we're all sitting in a graveyard. This is crazy. And I so found out that Our Town is performed somewhere in the United States every night. So I had this idea that I was gonna go see Our Towns at different schools, not every night, but as many as I could. And so I started doing that. I was gonna, I still might do something with that. But I found, I just enjoyed the performances of these kids and I thought, should I do a sketch comedy show with kids and kind of run it like SNL? Simon Rich and I had once asked Lorne Michaels to hire a child to be in the cast because we were always having Nassim Padrad or Bobby Moynihan come in as a six foot tall child. So we asked him if he would hire an actual kid because it would really fill these spots whenever we have a scene with a family and he was not interested in that. And I so thought it could be really fun. I was also a big fan of movies like The Sandlot or Searching for Bobby Fisher, that it was kind of all kids and took kids very seriously. So then I was working with my good friend and writer from Saturday Night Live, Merica Sawyer, and we started talking about this Carole King album, Really Rosy, which was like a thematic album for kids, but also it's really good music. We were talking about Free To Be You and Me and these kind of records that we had as kids, like Harry Nilsson's The Point. And it was, you had like pop stars doing these groovy things for children. And we thought, let's do one of those. And we did. And nothing has ever come out exactly like I pictured it, except for that.

"And once it's done, it's done. It's a really important for sure. You know, you're doing the work of what a whole team would do. By the way, one other test connection in your book every time I read bubble factor, probably because of the capital B and the capital F and the R and the number of letters, I kept seeing Bobby Fischer. I was like, every time I read it, I was like, Bobby, Fisher. It's funny how your brain has these weird heuristics. People who are very good readers, you know, you can put typos into books and very good readers won't spot them, because we just see all the words and we immediately assemble them into what makes sense to us. I would like to thank everybody helps us on this book. Because we're self published, we do rely on people to step forward and agree to proofread and stuff. And it's really hard to the number of people who are prepared to give their time for this stuff. I do give them acknowledgments in the back of the book, but I would like to say, it's amazing. It basically takes a village to help two village idiots write a poker book. And this sort of bore this out. We sent this book out to so many proofreaders and also content experts and they all came back with great suggestions. And then other people have bought the book and they immediately leave review on Amazon. And we know from past experience, that's vital. Even if your book is setting pretty well, if there are no reviews going up, Amazon kind of knows that, well, that's just his mates behind the book. The reviews really help as well. And we're very, very lucky. We've gotten so much support from people who are interested in people who have born our previous books. And I saw a lot of tweets by cat. You know, editing the book. And by the way, the bubble actor in MTT tournaments was something that I really liked in the book, even though it wasn't a super extensive part of your book, and most of it focused on final table and ICM. And I actually spotted a new interview with Barry that he wasn't sure that you should insert that section. I'm really glad that you did..

"Welcome to October 9th, 2021 on the national day calendar. Today we celebrate a soft spot for wool and a warm spot in the Cold War. In 1974, the sci-fi classic Doctor Who cast a new actor in the lead role. Costume designer James atchison was given the task of creating a unique look for the doctor. He thought the costume should have a scarf. And he asked his friend begonia Pope to knit one. Atchison dropped off several balls of yarn and went on his way. Begonia began knitting and because she wasn't sure how long the scarf should be, she didn't stop until every last inch of yarn had been used. The result was a ridiculously long scarf that was about 18 feet long. This colorful accessory became the trademark look for Tom baker's incarnation of Doctor Who, an I love yarn day, express your own textile taste, and don't be afraid to go over the top. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union seemed invincible at the game of chess. For decades, every single world championship was won by a Soviet player. When an American named Bobby Fisher made it to the championships in 1972, the whole world was watching to see what would happen. Fisher lost the first two matches to the reigning champ Boris Spassky, and it looked as if the Soviet streak would continue. Then Fisher staged one of the greatest comebacks in the history of competitive chess. His performance was so impressive that the crowd broke out into applause after his win. Even spasky gave Fisher a standing ovation. A national chess day celebrate the ultimate game of strategy that can still bring the world together. That must have been something to watch. It was. And the big thing is that the crowd broke out into applause. That doesn't happen at tournament chess. Oh, I bet it doesn't happen in the Soviet Union. Especially in the Soviet Union. Right? Hey, tomorrow is national angel food cake day. Toasted. With strawberries. I'm Anna deavere. I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we celebrate every day. See you tomorrow.

You need to get back in the studio for this traveling two weeks. Yeah cool out there. Temps and all that stuff is people just outside. Walk around like you're sweating. You're sweating through your shirt. How is that comfortable in. The morning is at about one hundred and ten where we at right. Now i think right. Now we're around eighty five eighty five or jd five. Yeah it feels like the all your internal organs are cooking a slow from they tell you but it's but it's a dry heat doesn't matter you know like monica. Here's the point. After games out here in phoenix right after a big game you go outside. What do you see monica. It's supposed to be dark right. Just like thousands of people people milling about how you create. You don't see. Nobody see the heat coming in air of the payment. I'm like damn that's layers. Are you speaking of phoenix. We have another robert in phoenix. Actually so let's stay in phoenix robert. Good morning you're doing all right. So robert i they will. They will welcome to phoenix man. It's a We actually got rain on saturday. So it's actually a hugh heat now so but vouch for Chris paul and cenex. I think when it's all said and done if we're able to get the championship. I say it over and over Booker's are most in earth. Booker's our best player. Chris paul's or most important player. So i think he'd go down to the phoenix personally. Good way to put an end to think about it this way. The way joe holiday described the the box when he said that jaanus is the sole but middleton is the heart Is i mean. Is chris paul the heart and booker the soul. Like would you. How would you put if you were going to describe the sons in the same way. I think i would flip. I think booker's the heart. And chris is so i think you see i. I think i think. Cpi three is like the the brain i think is the brain operate and endeavour art and soul. Though here's y'all not really going on. Now he's just it's different because cb is like analytical. He's the one that is the mastermind. Yeah no i behind positioning the pieces. Right whereas devon booker. If you're looking it's like he's a great like bobby fisher and then devon booker is like the queen devon booker almost pilot pieces on the board. I would like to introduce you as the thyroid gland. Like jason guy that you ask them you ask him a multiple choice question and he wants to write in the answer because none of these answers make sense on the test. That's why it's so. Let me something that makes sense. Would you like to go to north carolina. Why because yes. You do a trick question. So north carolina to address something with you. John hey how you doing. What's up john. I just wanted to brush up on jay williams on what he just said going back to the last caller If he goes back to nineteen eighty three here. Remember that it was dr jason doctor. Jay was the one who couldn't get the get. Couldn't get past the lakers when they bought over Moses malone way with a beat. The lakers the same situations but crispell so as not chris paul steam just like it wasn't moses malone team doctor james team and this here's devon booker but then one piece that's needed to get past them doesn't make it your team it just helps you make better but let me say i like your example. Actually let me ask you this. How many times is devon booker. Been to the playoffs. Like there is playoff. History between moses malone dr j. devon booker never been to the playoffs to the looked and i give you the final. You know what i mean. That's a huge jump i understand. It's a huge jump. But in today's basketball you add one piece and it's a huge jim. We could take a look at where just adding Adding jrue holiday. Look at the difference in milwaukee. There's plenty of situations like that j. around the whole entire. Nba i just disagree with that point and i understand what you're saying about them not getting there but in today's basketball you add a key piece. That takes you someplace where you've never been and we can take a look at the atlanta hawks when you take a look at a whole bunch of teams that have made jumps throughout the year by just adding this one piece. I i you. John i do hear you. I think this is a very interesting argument. But i think position makes this one. Just a little bit different. And signs of jay's point right before we took your call c. p. three orchestrating and sort of the brain of all of this to the next level but i do hear you on that point. I hear you. But monica thing. About like if you're eric bledsoe Your home run. It'd be like right. Yeah like i was with two sons. That didn't work out. I was with milwaukee so yeah that critical piece. That's a game changing piece. Where your organization do how they game change a piece but c. p. three i mean the bucks have always been the best regular season team over the last several years. They just couldn't get over that hump in the playoffs. We've never talked about phoenix. Being the best regular season team. We never even talked about phoenix being top five in the west yet alone now a team. That's in the finals that finished with the second best record in the nba. That's a monumental piece. Yeah it's not like they were again you go back to the raptors. With d'amato rosen. And kyle our. They were running into a wall every year every year they make that trade they bring in why they get over that wall. Finally that's not. Fa phoenix wasn't running into a wall every year until they finally made a trade that. Got them over the hump. They were a team. That was still kind of on the rise and then you add this piece.

Yeah he would have just been a champion pigeon razor and that's it Taught elocution perhaps where he the the skill that gives them success in this. The domain of their profession is one that does not give them success outside of that domain. That's a i also wonder. Hey why didn't you play the game in your brain. A few moves ahead and realized you ready for this chest. People are i think just blows are so notorious for thinking a few steps ahead. You're always living in many moves down the porn. Why didn't you know that this wasn't going to suit you once once you succeeded at it. So he also had the hottest of hot takes which was nine eleven. That was good. Oh well that's a heartache. Right there yeah. That's that's a spicy hot take. Yeah that's spiciest of the hot takes. All i did not know that his politics or yeah he had i mean he was anti-semitic even though his mother was jewish You know he was made lots of antisemitic comments throughout his life. Yeah said that nine eleven was a a good thing. was arrested in japan because he was using a revoked passport to try to get on a japanese airline flight. He was someone who had he was a very complex person. Let's put it that way. Yeah and i think. I think that he is you know whether or not i think the question is whether or not his the pressure's that were put on him at such a young age kind of turned him that way or if he would have been that way no matter what yeah you know. It's kind of nurture versus nature. Russian. it's fascinating yeah. I think we may discuss more individuals who found this profession or found success. Who whose intellect was such that they may have found torment in almost any they. They're in may have been a thing that brought them into conflict with the world no matter what they did professionally. I would also wonder if maybe chess was enough of world to escape into that may have even held off some of that aberration for you know some sometimes. I wonder if michael mike tyson had not been able to beat people up inside. The rain would happen more outside of the ring. So yeah it was just a good thing or a bad thing so very interesting okay. Why don't we move onto mike. Lynn richard for their first choice. Okay i'll go first. Michael if that's okay and i will go with bobby. Fisher was great. You fool you fell into my trap.

Somebody who's who's a who's life in the spotlight after being becoming famous for chest did not please please to that. Suit them. so yeah. I think that was a big part. I think he was.

"The schizophrenia. Study there are studies. Were these games sharpton. Cognitive skills in children reduced symptoms of adhd and depression and possibly prevented dementia. Although you could find evidence that just about any activity that's absorbing challenging has those effects. Yeah but why do so. Many chess masters have schizophrenia. I looked into this encountered eight including some of the most prominent figures in chests. His these players rose to the top. I only have their careers. Derailed by symptoms of psychosis are in some cases. A clear diagnosis of schizophrenia. Take bobby fisher the prodigy. Who left a dent in the iron curtain. When he beat the top soviet player bar spassky in nine hundred seventy two during that match fisher started to show signs of psychosis although with all the cold war politics that surrounded the tournament. It was hard to tell how much of that was reality. Based he thought the soviets were following him bugging his room and even trying to control his brain by sending signals through his tooth fillings. He was also extremely distracted by sounds lights. Which is an early sign of schizophrenia. The inability to filter out irrelevant information. That breakdown is dramatized. Rather nicely in the two thousand fourteen film pawn sacrifice fisher was twenty nine years old in one thousand nine hundred seventy two which is kind of at the tail. End for onset of schizophrenia. Usually schizophrenia begins the late teens or early twenties but it can begin in the late twenties and when it does cognition is usually spared and more intact. The late onset also gives the person time to accomplish things in life before the illness takes hold after his historic win against the soviets. Bobby fisher went into hiding. He was sometimes found wandering in the middle of the night unshaven disheveled and ranting about jewish conspiracies. He spent the rest of his life believing that he was being persecuted by an international jewish group and that the holocaust was a money making invention now just because of belief is false does not make it delusion and certainly there are subculture with these kinds of harmful ideas about jews. A common but bobby fish did not belong to such a subculture. He was jewish boy. Who grew up in new york city bobby fischer is just the most famous example of this decline palm offi. The nineteenth century champion who's creative energy helped shape. Modern chess also developed paranoia and bizarre behavior. Any slight twenties. Wilhelm stein it. The first world champion was hospitalized with psychosis. He believed he could play. Against god through wireless telephone and this was long before the first phone so we found eight chess champions. Who developed signs of schizophrenia. And nearly all of these were late onset cases. The coincidences enough. That a few researchers have looked for common cause so far. They've found that chess masters are more likely to be born in the winter months. Which is a known finding in schizophrenia. So we think that's because viruses are more common in the winter. Months and in utero exposure to a virus can alter brain development in ways that put people risk for schizophrenia. Left handedness is also more common chess grandmasters left. Handedness is likewise more common schizophrenia. In one study forty percent of people with schizophrenia were left handed which is four times the rate in the general population. Dodder or i can. What do you think is the connection between schizophrenia and chess ability. The genes for mental illness often have a positive side. We see that in bipolar disorder where they bring higher rates of creativity and leadership skills both in the patients when they're not an episode and their relatives. My sense is that schizophrenia. Also comes with gifts but that we rarely see the fruits of those strengths because the illness comes on so early and the negative symptoms are so devastating. You're only going to see those remarkable gifts in late onset cases like you do with these chess masters. What else say those strengths. In the relatives of people with schizophrenia out. Expect you would although. I'm not aware of any studies of that. But you know it is notable that our dean stein. James joyce and the philosopher bertrand russell. All had a child with schizophrenia. I talked with nancy andreessen about this once. She's a schizophrenia researcher. And she believed that schizophrenia carried with it creative strikes so she went to the i wo- writer's workshop to look for signs of mental illness in these world class writers but what she found was unexpected. There were high rates of bipolar disorder. But not of schizophrenia. In that group still. She thought there was something. There and that people with schizophrenia may have more creative abilities in abstract or scientific fields which is where the chest connections speculatively fits in your thinking. is that. There's something about the mind in schizophrenia. That lends itself to chest talent rather than that playing too much chest. Colds schizophrenia. For the most part yes. But i wouldn't recommend tournament chess to prevent schizophrenia. Remember in the schizophrenia study. They played chess two hours a week. Not ten hours a day. There's also evidence that video games can have mental benefits but only one played in moderation the new video game that's fda cleared for adhd shuts off after twenty minutes of play competitive chess players also deal with intense physical symptoms of stress during these long matches. It's enough that there are measurable changes in their heart rate and blood pressure while they play and the surges and noradrenaline and corticosteroids go on behind the scenes. They're really not good for the brain. That your patient. The one that said glen to mean improved. It's chess game has ever been used to test the cognitive effects of medications. Yes i put up this study here from two thousand seventeen. It's called methylphenidate modafferi caffeine for cognitive enhancement in chess. This one got a lot of back then because it came out at the same time that a doping scandal shook the chess world one in ten tournament chess players in germany admitted to using cognitive enhancers to improve their game. But let's take a closer look at this study because the story gets complex they randomized thirty nine competitive cheer players to play against a computer after taking one of three stimulants methylphenidate ritalin body milligrams divided into two doses Vigil bull hundred milligrams. Oh caffeine four hundred milligrams. That's equivalent to six shots of espresso and is considered the upper limit of safety for daily caffeine. The players then battled against the computer in a series of ten games. The games would time so the human had only fifteen minutes to play the result was that madonna finagle and methylphenidate caused the players to lose more games because they ran out of time. Caffeine had no effect on performance when the games that will loss to the clock were eliminated these stimulants slightly. Enhance the play. The effect was equivalent to the advantage. The white player has in making the first move a five percent edge those paradoxical results illustrate the complexity of trying to use medications to enhance cognition. You might gain in one area while damaging another in this case. The stimulants made the chess players. Think more about their moves but they deliberated too much at the expense of the clock. And you need to know about these complexities fine. Tuning stimulants in adhd. If the dose is too high the patient might feel over-focus like they can't shift out of work mode they may say. They've lost their spontaneity their creativity or in the case of standup comedians. I've treated their sense of humor.

The Chess Grandmasters Extreme Workout
"I. How did you get on the chess? Beat in the first place? So I get really interested in these really need sports that. People are super invested in Ashwari. Kumar is an international features writer for Espn Lake if you're going to which. Of People Are Watching these chess tournaments that you wouldn't even know where that's happening in. Iceland. Or Finland, and so I had this curiosity so I was thinking so Bobby Fisher was such a huge part of chests in the US what Ron Labor is tennis. What Jack Nicklaus's to golf? That's what Bobby Fischer is to chess. Bobby Fisher of the United States will finally meet Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union in Belgrade Yugoslavia, but the chess championship of the world plus a purse of one, hundred, thirty, eight, thousand five hundred dollars, the richest prize for a head-to-head confrontation in any sport, but boxing. So who is the next Bobby Fisher? So I went to Saint Louis last year to sort of figure out what is going on in the chess world, so saint Louis has sort of become this chess capital of the country. Let's start with the basics here. What is a chess grandmaster? And what does it take to become one? Usually what happens? Is this International Chess Federation F. And they have this point systems so chessplayers. Lead different tournaments in accumulate these spines that. Gets them to a certain level of expertise, and they are then title the grandmaster, which is in fact, the highest I do that. A chess player can be awarded by International Chess Federation usually these. Players between the age of ten and fourteen, and so they go through these rigorous tournaments one after the other parents take them all over the world. And the get the title by around thirteen fourteen, and then they start to perfect the art of being perfect, just player. So you mentioned Bobby Fisher. Who is probably the most famous chess player all time? Actually is definitely the most famous chess player of all time. Who are the stars of the field today? The poster by of chess is at the moment Magnus Carlsen. Calzon is the best in the world. The youngest number one ever and no one can explain to you how he does what he does. It seems to come from another world, which is why he's become known as the Mozart of chess. He's from Norway. He sort of had this. Has this bad boy live to him? He's like interesting. He'll drop these nuggets about other players. You make jokes about his opponents. He talks trash social chicken. How do you not? He's GonNa do the same. Yeah the lack of comas is astounding. And quite disappointing. He talks acts. Yeah for sure sorta like that kind of Worcester wise. He's called the golden boy of chess. And then this. Is. Bobby Ana crew art, there's this Chinese grandmaster Ding Laren and then USA's Wesley so and Kara Nakimora. Really Good Armenia has live on Romanian so these are some of like the famous players at the moment that go up against each other all the time. So I the grandmaster that you decided to focus on with your story, the one who lives in Saint Louis is actually Italian. His name is Fabiano Caruana. Who is in? How did he get here? Fabiano Caruana is the number two seed in the world. He's an Italian American chess grandmaster. He became a grandmaster at fourteen years of age, fourteen years, eleven, months, and twenty eight to be exact, and he at that time was the youngest grandmaster in the history of Italy in the United States. E was sort of beg to be the next big thing in in US chess and he came back now. He has an apartment in Saint Louis. He lives there and he sort of boot. BOOT his life from scratch, and he was never like the big personality like Norris Magnus columnist. He's the guy that will is very chill loves video games and let us work to the talk to his justice stories about that call in the next Bobby Fisher like the next big thing. He's the one person that can actually dig down. Magnus, Carlsen in the world championship and become the next world champion. So what does? Chess match in a grand masters tournament. Actually look like. How does it play out? Okay so two grandmasters shake each other's hands. sit down across from each other is chessboard. This o'clock next to them that the are constantly looking at. This goes on for at least six hours right every day, and so during these six hours, the brain has to have most oxygen supply.

Lauren Vogel, bam here if you feel like you can't even consider consuming a candy bar without being confronted with its chlorine content. You're right. The same thing goes for just about every piece of packaged food you see in stores, plus every bottled canned or carton beverage a nutrition facts label depicts detailed info on the amounts of fat sugar. Sodium and more found inside. But while your favorite breakfast, cereals sodas and sandwich fixings are subject. This type of in-your-face transparency, you may have noticed that booze is typically off the hook residing behind fact labels. So what gives the answer lies in the powers that be while the food and Drug administration or FDA regulates the safety of you guessed it food, including non alcoholic beverages? It doesn't govern the alcohol industry that honor belongs to the alcohol and tobacco tax and trade bureau or TB an agency that doesn't require labeling while beer wine and spirits companies aren't league. Alie mandated to print, the nutritional info on their products. Consumer advocates have been calling for the TB to change that. And it has sort of in twenty thirteen the agency made nutrition labels optional for alcohol, but somehow, experts don't feel the move was bold enough Johns Hopkins public health researcher Sarah Blake told vox in two thousand fifteen many adults take in a tremendous amount of calories from alcohol, and they have no idea. She should know her work revealed that the average American regularly consumes four hundred calories a day from alcohol alone. A pint of PA contains about two hundred fifty calories a glass of red wine has about one hundred twenty five and a shot of liquor has about one hundred. The reasons behind the disparity in label requirements between the FDA and t t b goes back to prohibition when the ban on the production and distribution of alcohol in America came to an end congress passed the alcohol administration act of nineteen thirty five which eventually led to the establishment of the t b but its rules around labeling have historically been a bit. Messy substances. The people might be sensitive to, like, sulfites have to be labelled, but other ingredients, do not wines, contain fourteen percent, alcohol, or more have to display alcohol content while wines from seven to fourteen percent. Don't have to list, alcohol content, if they're considered light or table. Oh and wines with less than seven percent alcohol. Those aren't regulated by the TB at all. Those are under the jurisdiction of the FDA, and so they're required to display nutrition facts. Labels confusing. Isn't it? A few brands corona light, Guinness Heineken, and course, light do put calories and some nutrition information though. Not the ingredients on their bottles, or packaging, but it's typically very small print or hard to find you might even have to look on the bottom of the six pack to find it who looks their Bud Light on the other hand began voluntarily including obvious, leibels listing its beers calories fat carbohydrates and protein per serving, as well as other ingredients in February of two thousand nineteen since then and Heiser Bush's added similar labeling to some of its other Bud Light line beers, including Bud Light lime, Bud Light orange, and Bud Light lemon tea change is brewing though. At least in the beer industry industry leaders, including Anheuser Busch Miller Coors, Heineken USA constellation brand beer, division, North American breweries and craft brew lions which together produce more than eighty one percent of the volume of beer, sold in the United States have agreed to voluntarily displayed nutrition facts by twenty twenty.
