"Jim, when you were in Bruges, what else do you remember as a highlight? Well, obviously, the tour of the brewery, which has been there for 400 years. It was an amazing tour. It's been to a lot of breweries, obviously, but this one was rather unique because of the age. This is the it used to be strafe Hendrick, right? So you have the strong hand, the stuff of Henry. Yeah. Which is one of the beers. It's a great beer. It's a great bean. But what's really cool about this is you take the tour and it's just a fun loving tour isn't a gym. Very nice. Very cordial and very friendly and very personal. And you see the actual beer making process. And of course, at the end, you've worked up this amazing thirst, and you've got it, drink what they've been making there. This beautiful, beautiful lobby where you enjoy that beer. I treat myself to that tour after a long day of researching in Bruges. It is a highlight. Jim, thanks for your call. Thank you. Thank you for your help with our Turing. You.

"Most of the time at the end of their life in those days. So very religious, the nice thing is because of the religion linked to the hospital. You have a lot of religious art. And the contributor of religious artist Hans memling. It's not so not really considered a hospital museum, but it's more than memling museum. So was a hospital. It has this gothic feeling of old Bruges, but if you like memling, and if you don't know memling, memling is sort of the quintessential Flemish artist. Yes. A very detailed as well. Exquisite, the detail, and apparently he was taken was taken care of in the hospital and as a kind of gesture, he donated some of his best work. He got to check that out. I know everything we've been talking about is within a hundred meters of each other right now. Yes. The church, the little canal tour and the membranes and this medieval hospital, and that's just the beginning of Bruges and it's all contained in a beautiful wall surrounded by a canal. And it's just a delightful opportunity it's about an hour away from a Brussels you can get there from Amsterdam quite easily. This is travel Rick Steves for talking with Niko fava Rio, our friend from Belgium, the Dutch half of Belgium, our phone number is 877-333-7425 you can email us at radio at Rick Steves dot com and Jim's calling in from Colorado Springs in Colorado, Jim, thanks for your call. Have you been to Bruges? I have my wife and I went a couple of years ago and had a wonderful experience in beautiful city. Beautiful scenery took some great photos. And one of the things we discovered was Burke cafe, it was called the Oxy dog and I am not sure exactly what the translation for that is, but it's one of those 400 year old homes that you've talked about. And it was just outside the old city gates and the woman invited us in and we had a lovely aperitif in the afternoon with her. And this is the Bert cafe. It's called Burt cafe, yes. Worst shot? Well, it must have been on a canal then. Bruges comes from the same word as bruge, which I mean there's a bit of it sounds very much like the current name for bridge. Okay, but it may be derived from a docking spot. And then an old Celtic word also Vikings use it like Bergen and Bergen in Norway. Same thing. So a docking spot, yes. So Nico Jim went to this sounds like a wonderful family run elegant restaurant in an old home, and when I'm updating my guidebook, I'm always spending the Indians looking for.

"Yeah, it's the church of our lady, the Notre-Dame basically. The cathedral is a little bit further up, but the church of our lady is the one that everybody sees from a far distance. It's like LEGO bricks. When you look at that tower, it looks like a skyscraper. It is out of bricks, but it's a church fire. It's amazing. Nowadays, we have, of course, a lot of buildings, but if you would have arrived in Bruges, say, in the early Middle Ages, you would have seen that church tower from miles and miles ahead, and people traveled a lot of times for religious purposes back then. And you would be walking and from far in the distance you'd see that spire and you go, ah, our destination. And that's a way of showing where trade was done if you had a big spire. And then you step inside and you find a Michelangelo statue. I think it's the only Michelangelo in Northern Europe. That's sort of an indication of how important Bruges was. It is. Not just a tourist town. It had a Michelangelo, and it was a purchase. It wasn't really given to the church or so it was someone who had traveled traded with Nord of Italy and got these statue. Now, across from the church, there's a beautiful bridge. I mean, every bridge in Bruges just seems like it's made for a painter to set up an easel and painted, but then beyond that there's a little dog and small touristic boats that take people around. What would you find when you get on one of those boats? Yeah, you have 5 stops that basically give you the same experience. So every boat does the same tour. It's a 45 minute tour. I mean, they're not covered. So you have to be lucky with the weather, but it's a must. The queues can be quite long, so maybe you want to go ahead and crowded very early. A lot of times, you know, it's crowded in the middle of the day, but it's remarkable how quiet it gets later on..

"And dealing with a headache of constant Visa renewals and approvals, digital nomad, Mike's regards key headed for Georgia, the one 6000 miles east of Atlanta in what used to be the USSR. Mike's been in the republic of Georgia now for the last year and he lives right in the middle of its capital city, Tbilisi. George's capital has been a crossroads of ethnicities, religions, and backgrounds for centuries, and after generations of hard times Tbilisi's now a more stable city in boasts an improving economy. Today, Mike sugan ski joins us to talk about what life in modern Tbilisi is like and why it should be a top digital nomad destination for travelers. Mike, thanks for joining us. Thanks so much for having me on here, Rick. Excited to chat about ta Lisa. Yeah, and first of all, I'm eager to get into Tbilisi, but I want to also remind people you are not on vacation. You are living and working as a digital nomad, and that's what you write about in your book, which is called global career, how to work and anywhere and travel forever. You love living and working in Georgia and you are still working as if you could be anywhere on the planet. What is a digital nomad and why is the republic of Georgia a great place for you to use as a hub? Yeah, essentially a digital nomad is anybody who's able to make money from their laptop and doesn't have to stay in one location Tbilisi has been one of the best digital nomad hubs and it's becoming one of the most popular places for digital nomads. And one of the big draws is how welcoming they are to expats digital nomads and online entrepreneurs. And one of the examples is I've never seen this anywhere in the world after visiting 85 countries. The person who takes your passport, you give them your passport, they give you a stamp for one year as a tourist, and then they hand you a mini bottle of wine. It took a few minutes to go through the border control and they just seem very welcoming. It's a small country of around 3.7 million people and Tbilisi in Georgia has just been one of these places that's embracing digital nomads and very welcoming to all types of tourists and travelers. So.

You mentioned tony martin. M lionel are a really strong and performance from him. His lost time tron is second lost race because he likes to finish after wednesday's mixed time trial it'll be the end of his career and he's in order to retire this point. He's actually broken his contract of his mother. He said that they would have been supportive of that. He he's brought the carton dina early. Because i'm a big fine to seems to be the crashes. He's had mean we all remember the crash third frantz on on day one and when he hit the sign being held i by that lady and to his entire team suffered nasty injuries and that he's got a law of nasty crashes over recent years But i just don't on his his record in the time. Trial am thirteen rides in the individual time trial and has the lowest result ninth place and trae phenomenal. He won five four world titles in his career. I think we're going to hear from tony martin movement because he's not always easiest guy to interview. I did write about this in our book. Couple years ago when i find myself Food away from him at the finish of of wealth to stage. He almost came to hall actually on my foot and seemed the natural thing to ask him for an interview and he. He refused his only refused but refused to make contacts as well so that was an awkward moment and he was in a more relaxed that mood at the finish of the time trial and he spoke at some length there a by his bringing the curtain down in his career and his thoughts at the end of a long and very successful career. Well before we hear from tony martin. Rich i was looking back at his career because it really is on the one hand some very high profile wins and on the other some really high profile quite spectacular crashes and. He's thirty six years old now and as you say four time world time trial champion. And he's absolutely dominated. The german tom championships including a run of ten wins in a row. Anita five hundred state winner as well an interesting character and somebody will be good to catch up with when pops he's retired and wants to back on his career remarked in the eye and actually engaging conversation rich i don't know but he was born in east germany and nine hundred ninety five before the berlin wall came down and one of the things intrigued me about him. Can i more about his family escaped east germany not long before the wall came down They did actually then moved back into the eastern part germany after unification and he actually went to the f foot sports school. Which is the same one. That masha kittle later. Went to and that's where he began his education cycle and he turned pro for high road road for them and usually and then did five years with a pharma quickstep and then a couple of seasons ca. Tusha wet really. He looked a bit like a square peg in around whole didn't really have a sort of clearly defined role. But that's certainly something that he founded by visa. My way he became a road. Captain fica and so we'll remember my should not only a welcome time tried it but also a winner of weeklong state races one pyrenees back in two thousand eleven. He won the eneco tour three tours of belgium and was an excellent climate and very very strong in the breakaways. If you think back to his first tour to france in two thousand nine he finished second to one market on the mumbai onto stage right at the very end of that tour. I just can't forget. Yeah just just onto that line. I remember home also saying that that he could have written on one pirate bay in his career. He was always trying to get him to do. He never never did folks not but he he was he he. He did different things at different points. He looked like he might be turning himself into sage race around the time of pyrenees. When and then latterly became the sort of almost. Tim clark like figure for you movies. Ma am the writer he'd be on the front for for so long it does put ruin dennis's recent signing in a in a fresh light doesn't it because he would seem to be perhaps physically at least a replacement for twenty mark. Especially when you think of the way that dennis road in the jiro with tiogue and heart last year because one of the outstanding rides of martin's career walsh in two thousand and fourteen. Remember the stage to me which went over all the climbs in the including the grown below. I think it was us away. Solo for sixty kilometers off dropping. The everyone else in the break in the last man with him was allesandro. Marquis i think that was an outstanding state win. He held the yellow jersey in two thousand fifteen after winning the power ruby style. Stage didn't need kabul stage to cambrai was in yellow. When a couple of days later he crashed very heavily in the final kilometer of really hectic finish and broke his collarbone into several pieces and had to pull out with a race and even in two thousand sixteen. Some interesting ends. He's tour day and he made all the way to the show. Saliba poured out when they reached the team because he was experiencing knee pain which come on the previous day in the alps. I guess he had on the olympic time-trial re i where he was twelve and then in two thousand nineteen remember. He was disqualified from the who along with luke rowe after they had that clash of road. Captains on the road to gap. It was wasn't boiling hot day when temperatures were heated in more than one way but he perhaps that day took his role of the enforcer in visual a little bit too seriously but he did become if much a part of that team's engine room. And i suppose the way. His tour ended this year a crashed on the stage to move onto and pulled out of the race but also being brought down in that incident as you said richard crashing into the sign. That was held right out into the middle of the road and it is interesting that he's Has cited the danger in the peleton at one of the reasons. So let's hear your chat with tony martin recorded after yesterday's time-trial way. He finished six by the way important to you to go. And and your career is a time trousers such a strong performance today. We'll really really really important. I'm really happy that My team supported me to by career here in championships Always my favorite race. And i always had my biggest biggest victories and so the second closer and i'm really happy due to my correa this great atmosphere. When i couldn't go for the mets. I'm sip brought it.

When a couple of days later he crashed very heavily in the final kilometer of a really hectic finish and broke his collarbone into several pieces and had to pull out with a race and even in two thousand sixteen. Some interesting ends. He's tour twenty-six day and he made all the way to the show saliba poured out when they reached the team because he was experiencing knee pain. Which come on the previous day in the alps. I guess he had on the olympic time-trial re i where he was twelve and then in two thousand nineteen remember. He was disqualified from the who along with luke rowe after they had that clash of road. Captains on the road to gap. It was wasn't boiling hot day when temperatures were heated in more than one way but he perhaps that day took his role of the enforcer in visual a little bit too seriously but he did become much a part of that team's engine room. And i suppose the way. His tour ended this year a crashed on the stage to move onto and pulled out of the race but also being brought down in that incident as you said richard crashing into the sign. That was held right out into the middle of the road. And it is interesting that he's Has cited the danger in the peleton at one of the reasons. So let's hear your chat with tony martin recorded after yesterday's time time-trial where he finished six by the way to go out and and your career is a time trousers such a strong performance today..

"A terrible terribly sad thing to get your head around the star of what should have been intended to be a celebrate three world championships and a reminder. I suppose we often talk about. Belgium is being in theory at least one of the safest places to ride your bike because the infrastructure here for cycling is incredible. I went by this morning on three quarters of the writers on segregated cycling paths. But you only need one thing to go wrong with a vehicle and And you know you're you're always Risk on a bike and and if somebody of anchor sorenson skill and experience can be killed all riding his bike then really any of us can and and that was the stark reminder of his death which is of no consolation to anybody whatsoever and it's just an incredible sadness and at the end of this episode. We'll hear from brian nygaard. Who some of you will remember most of you remember. Hopefully from arterial coverage. Brian worked with chris sorenson for many years on knew him very well. So we'll hear from brian on chris anchor sorenson at the end of the episode. Yes richard terribly. Sad news about kris. Anka soerensen jared italia stage winner of course in a very aggressive rider in the mountains sort of pure climate. Wasn't he well. The world championships went on today with the under twenty three men's time trial and danish winner. Johan price peterson. And i'm sure that before the men's rotation and perhaps some of the other races over the weekend The danish ride the whole peleton will pay tribute to chris. Anka soerensen and price peterson was very emotional at the finish and he explained afterwards. Press conference that you know anchor. Throwing some was very much in his thoughts and Some that costs brass screen said yesterday as well when he was he was suffering i in the time he was he was thinking of him and trying to to dig a bit deeper in his memory. If you like on. I don't know people might remember as well. We didn't have it on the twenty three or junior world titles last year. of course i'm two years ago. The lost twenty three time trial and in harrogate. You remember that price. Peterson was the writer. Who was kind of 'em i'd say he. He came off spectacularly in the time trial when he he rolled into what he thought was shallow standing water and it turned into almost a lake in the middle of the road. Remember that is incredible. Video footage of his bike being swept away and While he made up for that today by by winning the time trial here and it carries on an incredible run by the danes because mikhail won three titles in a role of under twenty three title and johann price peterson continues run the cycling podcast powered by cpa sapiens energy management.

Town don't win. The applies in time trialing to think and it was a real thing between dr and ghana. Apprai- thrilling finale. To two time thought with those two being so close the last two writers off and it really coming into a race between them. It was a showdown between the pair of them. But it was. I thought it was a really interesting time. Trial the way unfolded i know. Sometimes i'm a little bit down on time. Trialing as a television spectacle. But i do like a championship time. Trial where everything is on the line. The gold silver and bronze-medal was there on the line. I think perhaps in grand tours sometimes as a risk with particularly long time they can do so much damage in general classification. You end up feeding a little bit flat at the end of the day. Thinking has completely altered the shape of the race whereas when it is just a championship. I'm an absorbing watcher. Not particularly enjoyed the fact that ed napoleon had the hot seat for so much of the afternoon is some really good time. Trolleys came in and didn't topple his time. I mean if we just go back to the start of the early starters an italian rider matteo bre set the fastest time and then dime bigham of great britain when foster. But he didn't. I don't think even got to sit in the hot seat. He may well have done but he but he's back side possibly only rested on the luxurious plastic chair for a few seconds before maxwell shied came in he was the next finisher and then stefan who i thought was an outside shop for a medal. He lied and before he knew. Every poll came in and blew bickers time away. didn't he. forty two seconds quicker and then we saw the old man. Tony march and here. We talk about in the end of this part because he announced his retirement on the eve of the championships or confirmed these retirement. At the end of the season tony malkin came in in second place behind. Nepal cascarino denmark then pushed martin down a place and then it was all about the big too because he said steffen kuehn. Didn't didn't excel on this kind. Of course and well did well for go out to quick. I think about seven or eight seconds up on ghana at the first checkpoint and then they were split by only nine point eight four of a second the second checkpoint but still narrowly ahead but it was over your at gannett judge and had a bit more in the tank over the latter stages of the course when he hit the line. You know it was. It was kinda hard time. He came into the finishing straight to clock. He had one and he had time to take your hand off the ball and powerful and punch but it was close wasn't the only six seconds in a rio nip and tuck battle between two obviously very good time charlie's but perhaps on that flat course. It was the pure specialism of philip again. Another told over while venar. Obviously no slouch against o'clock but perhaps even more out around writer than ghana alba's surprised that ghana was so confident to punch their like. Am i i think throughout. I check quickest and then i'm gonna was was closing all the time. And he judged perfect and he said afterwards that he really quite consciously east off on the power of at the star it was quite technical the star and he wanted to write into you know he is. He is the best time trolleybus in the world..

"Well richard what was that very infused the asterik crowd noise. And tell me where i am right now. In the center of bruges line on the in the in the fans on the The world championships. It's monday and we're in between the under twenty three time trial and the women's time. Trial the noise that we opened with their well that was assigned to remco even the poll finishing yesterday's men's time trial and he went into the hot seat at the time held on for third place to give belgium the home nation silver and bronze venar of course finished second. Ghana defended his title to become again the men's time trial champion bob. Yeah i'm here in brusett world championships and it feels like i guess we expected the world championships in funders feel in a way pretty lively previously and quite international. You know i can see. See norwegian flags count you and there are few norwegian fans here and and the few from other countries to not not as many as you would normally see our world. Championship is good atmosphere. It was a great atmosphere yesterday for the time trial. Well it c- celebrate -tory. Ucla championships isn't it. Because it's the centenary of the first road world championships. Which were in. Do you remember where i mean. I'm not asking you remember that. In one thousand nine hundred ninety one can get accreditation in copenhagen in denmark in nineteen twenty one no time-trial trial then of course because it was just a road race won by a swedish rider guna scold and who could forget who can forget. Yes and the well. This is a celebrate world championships in more ways than one isn't it because it watching on the tv. As i have done so far it should the crowds looked absolutely fantastic and it does feel very uplifting is almost as if cove it never happened because they were six seven ten deep in places and the noise was coming through the tv very clearly. Obviously remco got cheered all the way round and then sewed by not and then there was an absolutely deathly silence when filippo ghana Hit the line and denied belgium the gold medal. I don't know whether that's me. Just projecting or whether it did feel a little bit flat for the home fans when ghana took gold. Yeah i think. I think so You know i was. Is she asking some of our belgian colleague who's more popular while an art or aramco nepal. Because at van is the more accomplished. The older writer and evan the polls the great hope for the future and he writes for a belgian team. And i wanted to make a difference. I was told. It was a unanimous. The venar is the the more popular figure in in belgium. Am and you know evan. The pull is popular too but fanar is sort of universally loved. Twitter's ever pull seems ever so slightly more divisive in a away and I think the the the strength of support for npr certainly came through yesterday and Yeah i think the cyclocross well makes a difference. That's kind of something that has gained venar bagan very enthusiastic following over the years I mean just watching that podium though. I think we're going to talk about the men's time short in this. First part to see little ram evans pull alongside these two giants comparatively speaking in ghana. And venar you're quite struck by you. Know just the power. He must i to compete with those guys. He's so small in comparison as danielson a couple of weeks ago he. He speaks a language and cycling. That he's not familiar with. I am and or he cycles in a language that he doesn't understand his he's an unusual talent isn't the even the poll. I'm still so young still. I'm slightly bill on almost still society built. But it's so sly bell and so capable on these Is a pan fly time. Of course it was pure and time trial f for a anita thought it would favor you know big powerful ruler's gone on for but i thought napoles performance was arguably the performance of the day. Yeah you mentioned how flat it was. Richard the flattest time trial at the world championships in doha and qatar. In two thousand sixteen a on This course seventy eight meters of elevation in forty three point three kilometers and it reminded me a little bit of a three days of depan time trial from back when that was a mini state race. And they would finish with time trial on the final afternoon the the scenery and the fact that started up on the coast then headed through the countryside and finished in a very charming city of bruges. Which i'm sure you've been enjoying. I suppose they were hoping perhaps at the wind might blow which would have made a different type of test but that would have possibly tilted the favor even more strongly in favor of the of the big units because they get carried along like if that a wind that got the pure punch power if it's a head or cross headwind darshan pilots. But it was very still. You'll be able to tell me rich. And we look very stale. People were saying it was still yes. It's still today. It was quite breezy. This morning I should but it's died down and it's perfectly still now for the the women's time trial 'em either a few writers yesterday Complaining a little bit by not complaining but just observing that hadn't been courses see them staffing cooing was one of them who said that he you know prefers 'em claims are you know undulations Where it breaks rhythm and just allows him as he put it to punch through. I ever pull as well. We'd have preferred on a slightly Hillier courson time trials site damola. They prefer and hillier courses rogue lich guesses. Well am ghana's just pure pure time. Trump's isn't it. And i guess the other takeaway was just again to underline the phenomenal ability of our in so many different areas of the sport disciplines of the sport. Because yeah this was. This was a sort. Of course that suited gone of the best time trust in the world then th the ground and venar really pushed them all the way on. The guy can win a month on to. he can win a bunch sprint he. Can he can do anything canny. And and to get so close to ghana on a on a course like this again. Just underlines his ability and the form that he's in and he's had a law silver medals now in his career and i'm sure a law people would not begrudge him Road world title on sunday when we've got the men's road race but we'll be talking about that later on line the won't we. We're going to hear from casper offscreen. Who will read or he lead. He'll be part of a very strong danish team. We'll hear from tim dick clark as well on the the men's road race 'em but that danish team which is very strong here in bruce's a really unbelievable tragedy to contend with the star of these world championships and they got their way and are really sombre atmosphere because resentful news on saturday. Evening of the death of chris anchor soerensen the former writer who philosophy couple years has worked for a danish media on here in bruges to cover the world championships for the danish media. When i in his bike on saturday and was hit by a van died and the the world championships got underway in a somber atmosphere. It was news on a tragedy. It really rocked an awful lot.

"I said i enjoyed this movie. I thought it really well done. And when i found out that it was the same director. Three billboards. I was like okay. Well he he knows his craft. He knows how to make a movie definitely and seeing that. I didn't remember that this was nominated for stuff. Like i'd heard it. And like. I said i didn't even remember watching it so i i can see all the praise for this movie and and everything else. It was just good. I'm glad that you brought it up. When i was on your show. Thanks man whereas like got me to watch it again. Do you think you had watched the first time you definitely had watched it or you know i thought i had seen it before and in my mind i thought i had seen it and i thought i didn't like it. Ah when i was watching it. Like i didn't really remember anything and i'm like i don't see how i could not like this movie i. I think it's hilarious. I was laughing out loud a few times. it's funny as well. we should let the lazar. it's hilarious. It's a black comedy it is it is and it's there's a lot of the humor that's very subtle because it's like sarcastic comments on the show this just. What he said is hilarious. It's not like the slapstick type of comedy. It's very very subtle comedy. But it's it's funny and smartly written. If you don't like the bombs in the sea bombs you weren't like this film watch it with your kids around watch it any anything else on in bruised that you'd like to talk about. I was thinking about it just before while we were chatting i just think it was just a a really well written film and like you said it made me laugh. Made me didn't make me cry. And i was just captivated again but i don't know if i love as much as a first time i watched it. I think the first time. I watched a loved it more. Did you feel for raise hitman character like did you feel bad for him i did. I did feel bad for him. But i felt so bad for can see really put himself out for ri- think ri- appreciates things that people do for him. He sat type guy. You know his he he just kind of has that demeanor about him like Like you could just tell. From the beginning he getting sent to bruges after what he did and then he he just wasn't grateful for the way doesn't appreciate and ken just trying to help him out exactly and then died by the hand of his sword. In a sense you are correct. I will tell you haven't seen in peru's to definitely watch that If it's one of those it's ever been on your radar like you know. Maybe i should check it out. Definitely do definitely check it out and watch the directors other movies. If you haven't seen through three billboards that's highly recommended. Ben you're from the travel man podcasts..

Team Secret Cleans Up At Esports Awards

"Team secret for the e sports awards that i did not watch at all They one team of the year. They won player of the year which was nisha and coach of the year. Which is hain. is that all correct syndrome. Correct what do you think of that. So teamster again no. Ti this year and other other games have had the kind of their big tournaments some of them at least league for example but secret essentially winning the last. If you wanna take out the last few weeks has been seven plus money. I wanna say eight events in a row. Yeah seven months. They want everything just winning. Literally everything would you. I mean obviously our daughter bubble. So we're gonna agree right. The doda words everything. i would agree with. I don't know if i would put nietzsche's player of the year. I think it's hard to pick one. Yeah but he would definitely be one other candidates right. So i mean as it always is with these multi game award shows right. It's easy for us to say that these are great choices because we don't follow the other games that are part of it nearly as much to be honest with you. I don't even know which games are eligible to win in the sports category. If it's dodo leagues he has go rainbows. Six call of duty. Like i don't know what games are included in this is. It's hard to imagine another team in any game being as dominant the secret where this year. I think that's fair to say like you need to basically when everything right and not only that but the competition needs to be tougher which is unlikely once again because of corona because you know arguably secret even had a really tough region to play and while this was happening wasn't like it was just free easy wins because the region was week or something still tons of teams so it's super impressive I'm happy coaches got a bit more recognition so gretz to heen as well. I think he's really elevated this team to the next level they just started owning after he joined. I feel like it made a pretty big difference at least down the stretch Ceo good stuff. The thing about these awards shows though is. I don't know how much stock to put in the general. It's always cool for the teams to get recognition like this But i wish maybe it was a little bit more transparent a little more defiant. How we're going to segue into this next kind of mini topic of what do you think of award shows for e. sports in general because from my perspective i'm used to watching the oscars. I don't really watch a lot of other award shows at all but the oscars. I watch every single year. It's an event you know it's fun to watch. Even if i hate all of the movies which is sometimes the case that they just pick like the criteria just doesn't make sense to me sometimes like these artsy fartsy like movies will sometimes win for no reason. According to me but again like what criteria are they using. I don't know maybe you just don't have any taste. No that's definitely. I love in bruges. It's a great movie. Don't try to get out obligation. But what do you think from east perspective because when you look at the movies just as you know. Let's just do a one to one here. It's pretty clear. Even without knowing the exact criteria it's movies of this category but for east. There's just it feels like it's not as black and white. There's just so many different games. What is even considered an e sport. Technically speaking like. I don't even know the answer that question. That's the thing i mean. I guess the analogy of the comparison is really good though because in movies. There's also like it's super subjective. Right like what do you consider. A good movie is very different. From one person to the next head would be considered true. I suppose what it's defined as an eastport is a game that yeah but how many how big of a following doesn't need to have how significant to the price does need to be if i host a tournament in prague for one hundred bucks on eastport best escort because then then a lot of things could have won but now i i don't know what the criteria is and i think that's what we're probably agreeing on right now is that Maybe maybe are transparent about it. I just haven't seen it. I'm not saying that's not the case But yeah. I don't even know what sport is because like you said if it's just money than short that's anything could be in eastport if it needs to be x. amount of player base and have tournaments consistently running like whatever the case may be but either way. I like the idea of it. The fact that this is. I believe the fifth year in a row that their continued to do it is cool people show up to the event. There were ranked tuxes. They're trying to make it. That's where i don't like it. Actually they're trying to make it to. I don't know if mainstream is the right word but they're just trying too hard to copy everybody else like just let people show up in fucking sweatpants like were gamers man. Nobody wants to wear a goddamn suit. Unless you're a fucking psychopath syndrome okay. Being honest a lot of people do like dressing up on occasion. I think they don't like having to wear a uniform. It's like that all the time but for special occasions i think people like to do something extra like but honestly now that you it. I think it would be super cool if our award shows had people show up and team jerseys of their favorite team instead of in tuxes right. I think it'd be cool

"Instead of being paid to glorify the church and nobility like so much of Europe, the art in the low countries was paid for by the wealth of the Protestant merchant class are guides are Nico Febrile who lives near Bruges in West Flanders and Jodi angles door than she lives in Harlem North Holland? Nicole Yoda. Thanks for being here. Thank you. Thank you for having us. So from your perspective as a guide in the Netherlands ca you see that divide in the art world? Well, of course, it's a lot about the culture of country and like you said, our culture is all about brought stations and we had thorough formation and that are really created a big difference between some art in other countries in us. So we have very basic churches. They're all stripped down from older statues but also are monster pieces re rarely. See. Any Christian. Seems but we always have the Merchan's and because we had a Dutch republic very soon after. Yeah. So that is of you. If you see a bread of his biblical theme, it'll be from the Bible but it won't be from some Pope or something like that. Yes. If you think about you, you mentioned the reformation you have a huge church on the main square in Harlem that was a Catholic Church and it was completely painted all the pillars were painted and everything now when you go in yeah. Washed away whitewashed. Yes. Whitewashed. Yeah So a reformation came we had iconoclast where all the distance took it down and the art was little gone, and how do you recognize what the Protestants really brought into the churches was music and that is how they really lived up churches. So in Harlem, you have this giant organ. which more than five thousand pipes you can still go in and listen to it every Thursday In the summer periods. Then you have a concert for free you can visit and you can hear his Oregon play you can just. How old's organised, we've come so a ten year old Mozart played in this. So it's a it's a very different experience and it's very beautiful. So maybe four or five hundred years ago it was Catholic and then you have the reformation it becomes Protestant partisans come in there and they were kind of sort of kind of mean her. Very extreme. Throughout. All the statues they busted lot of the windows they painted everything white and they put up this amazing organ that goes it's his tallest building. It goes way to the top of those arches. Wild, it is wild and that's something that when you know the story behind, it makes a little more sense when you have a good information, know every Thursday there's a free concert Nico when you think about the Great Dutch painters who comes to mind. Of course, he think about people like don't finance house to meet. My personal is Yon Stein. Johnston because he has these scenes of just people having fun at home and it's sometimes a bit double if what he wants to say with paintings. inning. Is it the warning that you shouldn't be so? Joyful maybe in life. Or they're just fun to watch because there is there's a lot of folk way stem. Yeah. It's like I'm like don't be wasteful or if you gossip things bad things will happen or there's all these little little lessons about life but not really preaching from the Church nobody you could interpret it that way and people could hang it in their houses and say, this is what we shouldn't be doing. Right but I look at them as okay. They're having fun to me. It's a little intimate look at life for hundred years ago or whenever he owns Dean was painting, but that's a good name to. Note Yawn Seen S. T. E. N. S. these when I go to a gallery in the Netherlands I, see a lot of small paintings by a lot of people whose names I don't know rather than a few big paintings by people who are superstars and highly paid, and you got to think it's a different sort of clientele. If you're painting a King or some bishop, you can paint something big and really expensive. But in the Netherlands when they got rid of the king and they got rid of the pope, they got to have the open market business people for their clientele and it needs to be affordable. So you have small appreciate art. Or. Not Actually N- definitely. But like you said it would be anonymous or from the same workshop or around that's what you would read. You see the values of the day there I, mean, above the dining room table, you might have a still life. Yes. Still lifes is not a personal favourite, but that's something that you will find a lot. Would you see in still life because of fruits, baskets, fish 'cause it's the Netherlands. So they would have a love of fish in there as well. Easy to catch

I have been friends for a long time and last month. He was diagnosed with cove in nineteen and ever since then. He has been broadcasting as nightly show from his basement. It took weeks but he was eventually cleared to emerge from self isolation. It's been a journey for Chris. No doubt and we've been discussing that journey a lot on his show and on our own like a lot of people. I was worried about him even giving him some advice as a doctor and a friend. Dr Sanjay Gupta. Our chief is back. My brother North Star for many of us are during this time. You were right when you told me that. I would see a different side of this once. The virus took root Chris a warrior. But you're allowed to take a day off. You know we love you. We think about you and it's okay to take a day off totally right. You gotTa Take Care of yourself. I you can't take care of anybody else. Since his initial diagnosis Chris's wife Christina. And his son. Mario have also been diagnosed with Kovic nineteen. Now that he's through the worst of it I wanted to catch up and ask him about his experience with the virus and also find out how he and his family are now doing. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction. Let me ask you about you. What what are your days like nowadays you know. Tell me everything. When when are you waking up? What are you doing? How do you spend your time? Well it's changing. This has been a transformative event for me. I've never been knocked at my ass like this before headline disease. I was diagnosed with. Ptsd they put me on the pediatric doses select. So you don't have to work through a wire was having these dreams and all that stuff but nothing like this. You know a shivering mess for days where I was forced to be isolated and take stock in a way that I never had in my adult life so I went from doing nothing all day except preparing to do that. One Hour of television after which I be sweaty mess and fall down on the couch and basically lay there for like six hours and then get into some weird sleep cycle now. I am in the recovery phase which I didn't know existed and I am trying to be highly structured so I wake up early. I write and I read. Then I'm trying to start upping my activity curve. I can do very little exercise if I do too much. I heat up and I start to get a wave of almost like kind of a mild nausea and now that I don't have to be isolated. I'm waking the kids up in the morning for school Doing Breakfast Christina is needs to sleep it hits her hard at night her symptoms. She gets really bad. Sinus pressure at night and there are no great answers and I am still warm and they say I may be four weeks but I have a little bit more energy. Feel about forty eight percent myself. I can see you. Obviously the people who are listening to this. Podcast cannot but you you look a lot better. I mean we talk a Lot. I see you a lot You know obviously just via screen like this but You better one thing I do want to say. Is that when we first talked about this about you? Having a positive result on that on that test I gotTa tell you I was. I was worried in in in these. Aren't things that I told you while you were still dealing with this because I was modulating myself even so the conversation I'm having with you now is a different conversation? Because I've been reading stories about young people who had really no pre existing illness or anything and them getting really sick. Chris and even dying now. Am I going to share that with you on television? You know as you're dealing with this no I'm not now. I don't think that that's not being honest. I think it's it's it's modulating how I present things a little bit but I gotTa tell you I was. I was worried about you and there were times when you had these declines in your in your nights were terrible and your pulse symmetry your oxygenation was a little lower than I would have liked and I knew that you couldn't necessarily get to the hospital right away so I was worried and I guess the question is were you. Did you ever think that this was going to go sideways you I? There's so much of an unknown right and what You keep. Relying on is perspective that it's not supposed to be. It's not supposed to be me. I was having those funky dreams. A Lotta people have and I take a lot of comfort in new coverted community the I got patched into through this of people. It's so comforting Sanjay. When somebody's had the same that you had the commiseration things real you know. You got those crazy shakes. You Bruges leg yet. You know banging your legs into each other. Yeah I got that Bruce.

The Five Most Important Movies at Sundance

"The game we made up is essentially the five bio-pics you meet in heaven so we tried to find the five different kinds of stories that are told in the biopic format. Thought it was pretty fun. I think it's useful to play a game like that at Sundance because there are a lot of homes on not all of them are great in fact some of them are great but when one is good it can be a kind of transformative experience and they usually come in a in a particular kind of package. Now when you think of of a sundance movie what do you think of. I think of a quiet often heartwarming family or rip character-driven dramas with maybe a little bit of quirkiness added to them. That is definitely at least one of the Kennedy talking about this episode also documentaries that's the other one lots and lots of documentaries so she should we dive right in. Okay let's dive right in the first and the most classical example of the sundance movie is exactly what you're describing. It's essentially the family family drama. The sometimes lighthearted sometimes deadly serious as we go through these we'll talk about Some previous examples of films that have played at Sundance that fit this rubric. So when you think of this movie more severe example of it might be winter's bone or fruitvale station or affliction more lighthearted example might be big night a genre fight example might be like take shelter So these movies I think Are the most derided of the Sundance archetype. That's true I was trying not to be dismissive when I was describing off the top of my head but as soon as you say Sundance movie there is just a as soon as you're categorizing categorizing rising things in. You're being unfair to the things which I guess we're going to be unfair to every single move. We talked about to extend. This is a podcast and we need buckets. We need segments. We need to push the conversational says. I wasn't totally totally trying to be dismissive of the family drama. There are good ones. There are bad ones. That's a fact You and I had the good fortune. I think this year to see one of the best movies at the festival and one that falls pretty squarely into this framework. So the movie's called minority We just got out of our screening of minority. What was your takeaway from this film? This is a story about out a Korean American family who emigrates to Arkansas in the eighties and there is a little kid in this movie movie that just absolutely ripped my heart out and and all the performances did and I thought that it is. It's the best case version of this because it's definitely moves you but it's also funny as you said right before we started recording. It's beautifully shot. Well written it smart and not to truly if that makes any does it's an eight twenty four or movie written and directed by a man namely Chung and he has an interesting gracefulness with what what appears to be his own story. I actually don't know anything about where the story comes from but when we were discussing earlier we identified that. There is an incredible level of specificity in the story. In the setting in Arkansas in a family trying to create a new life for themselves a new state and a new country trying to figure out how to stay married trying to figure out how to be good parents trying to figure out how to be good. Children had to be good grandchildren. It's a very complex. WCHS portrait of a family living in close quarters. Not Totally. Sure if they're going to be able to go forward with their lives in the way that they wanted to and all that stuff I still. I'm kind of does a disservice to the movie because that just sounds like Sundance Hokum And I think the movies a little bit more special than that now. Are We experiencing the festival high on a movie perhaps. Perhaps it's possible but as I was watching it I think you'll probably see a lot of comparisons to the farewell about this movie as the year goes on and not just because it's from an Asian and filmmaker but because it's a particularly a story about three generations and how three generations interact with each other and some of the confusion that happens when one culture collides with another culture in place that they don't fully understand the farewell. It's obviously Luang main character. Visiting China Grandmother. This film is a Korean American family moving into a rural place. The thing I liked about it the most is that it doesn't apply the usual tricks that you would think a movie movie like this about a non white family. Moving into the south in the eighties. Might incorporate a little bit more subtle and sophisticated when I heard the word Reagan Reagan early on in the film. I got a little nervous. And there is a lot of thoughtfulness about the socioeconomic aspect of the story. But it's not there. No burning crosses in this movie there is no. You know vindictive vitriolic language about the family. It is really just a family story which I was kind of relieved about honestly it's really insular and it's explores the relationships between between all of the members of the family pretty specifically and individually and but and that's enough that kind of fills up the movie. Yes so since. We've you've never been here before. I kinda wanted to talk about a movie like this. I think this movie might fit into another category and other sort of bucket. We've created here but I've never been able to witness in real time. I am the life cycle of film. That May Be in the consciousness for the next twelve months and to be on the ground floor when that thing happens did you have that sense when you're watching this or did you just feel like well. I've been seeing a lot of movies this week and I'm doing my best to take stock of all of them. I think it was the ladder with their recognition that I thought this was a very good film in one of the best films. I've seen this week. I'm I'm trying to protect against festival buys. I don't I don't know. Do you feel like so. You need to to start some festival buzz right here. I don't think I'm capable of such a thing. I need to know my own power which is minimal nor do I and I think I'm more I have never been to sundance either and I'm treating it more as what you said. It's interesting to watch it happen. And I'll be curious to see how other people respond to it and what it is like to watch it in the screening leaning room whenever people get to see at. Were you know in a movie theater or at home. I don't have a sense. Totally of how those things translate yet and yeah I don't either. I mean it's the sort of film that You know on. Its face. It Star Steven Jahn who obviously had great success actually not utterly dissimilar story burning in two thousand eighteen. There are some kind of thematic and visual references. That kind of match interesting double feature. I just don't know a lot of the Casas. Very Unknown Hania replays his his wife. Stephen's wife who you know. They're the sort of the lead couple in the family. And we'll patent plays a minim. Paul who is is a local aid a spiritual man who works with the family. He's giving what I would describe it as a very sundance. He performance he's anti character is sundance character. Maybe ripped from real life hard to say but this movie is like sort of very quiet and subtle and Paul is not not the most subtle. You're in the world. I don't think Paul will be competing for any awards but Stephen. I don't know he's really turned himself into quite a quite great leading actor. I will say I already mentioned the kid at this is an all time great kid performance and we were talking about after seeing the movie like. How do you get six year old to do what the six year old does? And I don't have the answers to that. I hope to discover them at some point. But we'll say really good kid. Performance goes a long way. It's true in people really love to see a cute kid up on the screen. Uh Ribbon hearts out yeah. He's like a charm vector and an empathy machine. You know that every time he's not screen you're looking at that. I really just feel for that so we didn't attend this party. Apparently he was here at Sundance. Walking the carpets at cowboy outfit. Yes big big park city energy from seven year old Allen Kim. We look forward to more things from him in the future. Go to the next kind of category. Yes okay so I. I've described this as the adult oriented comedy. Now I think that also sounds a little bit dirty like like not not not scatalogical your sexually dirty but just sort of like corny. I'm not sure that adult oriented in comedy is something that you want go together like I said as soon as we're applying larger categories to these things that invokes branding evokes marketing. It invokes all of the things. That aren't a work of art so so I think that's why we feel the way we feel but also this is how the world works and it's definitely help I've gasworks keep going so I would say some of the movies that fall into this. Category are among our favorite movies so four four weddings and a funeral plate sundance many years ago. John Have you seen for weddings and a funeral. I've seen thirty eight minutes of it. What is why do you do this to me is well? It's just the film that I started to watch movies. I watched the whole movie well. This isn't Chris Ryan. I watched the Irishman on three consecutive nights. Nonsense think of it like this life life is one big screening okay more in a continuous stream viewership and happy with you. One day I'll get to the conclusion of four weddings and a few I wasn't going to post host. The picture of you tweeting on the shuttle earlier but now I'm going to is a threat. I want people to note that for the record. Another example of this is significantly different from four weddings and a funeral. The movie like in Bruges which you know well before Martin mcdonagh was being canceled for three billboards outside ebbing Missouri. He was writing really nasty. hilarious assassin in comedies. I hope he gets back to this style very soon because I love that movie very much the next two though I think are more closely associated with a kind of tree. Cly Sundance Story. Now these movies are both huge hits and are kind of emblematic of something and I will admit when I saw them for the first time I was like I liked this movie a lot. The two thousand wild different time very different time the two movies. I'm talking about our five hundred days of summer. But you may recall is the so additional Joseph Gordon Levitt Rom COM com.
