tennis without crowds
"Thank you rose for introducing this edition of the tennis podcast. Catherine Matt and Myself David Law are here to answer your questions today. Because it's Thursday. We wanted a podcast. We've only answered about five or six in every other previous listener questions podcasts. So we've still got loads and loads to get through plus about another hundred and fifty came in with matches putting out single tweet. So how you doing both Matt? You're fine thank you. Yes busy waiting through those questions that has been completed and we are ready to get going ready ready to rock and we'll have to rock because one of them's about entrance. Music Castro in for us to come into call wait for that one nice boilers today. I'm all right. I've worn. Put a Cardigan over over my dressing and to try and disguise the facts that I am not dressed. But it's I'm I'm looking at myself in the in the camera and I'm realizing it's it's a flimsy disguise. Isn't it fooled me? It did it. Oh okay I needn't have mentioned anything. Twenty seconds ago it's coming to say look down and everything okay so little insight there folks stuff. We didn't do. We both thought Catherine had dressed up for the occasion. But apparently this is our earliest recorded lockdown. I think it is a bit early. Isn't it Crikey ten thirty in the morning folks that doesn't exist on Catherine's clock she's have to borrow on. I write questions. We are going to get cracking immediately. Matt's what have we got first game to Sherry be on instagram. Who Asks probably in response to our pod on Monday when we some this topic. How can we make tennis more enjoyable without an audience? Pool is a big ask is probably something we should be thinking about though. Isn't it rather than I mean you know? We settled on the last that we will have reservations about tennis behind closed doors about crowd. Whatever you WANNA call it But it's a very real prospect I've done a couple of interviews in in the in the last couple of days one with Sergio Bruguera with Michael China. Be Hearing bits of the move the over the coming weeks we. We touched on lots of topics but I asked them both how they felt about tennis behind closed doors and their opinions could not have been more polarized surgey yet. I'm absolutely all four. It just bring tennis back as soon as possible. No matter what you have to do just bring it back. He he's panicked. He said bring football back. Bring tennis back. I need to watch Selena as a matter of urgency needs tennis return and when he first onto the question he was. He was definitely talking from a spectator's perspective. And I said what about what about as a player would imagine playing French. Open final with with Nike Crowds. And still he said. I don't care I don't care to bring it back. I put the same question to Michael Chang. And he said the opposite he said Noah I I just can't visit it's it's it's It's to wizards comedy get get my head around it. So there is going to be a massive divide in the tennis community. If one the first actual tool level event gets gets announced that it's going ahead you know this is GonNa be little debate flying around so we're getting in the we getting in the. I wondered if I covered a champion's tour event in two thousand and eight in Istanbul in July. It was my first one flying so lame and Istanbul in July. It was about forty five degrees. I'm not sure why they decided. That was where it should be in the calendar but anyway it was to be outside for long periods watching sports so there was just nobody in the crowd nobody whatsoever so they pumped crowd noise in and it was. It's of course it was weird but maybe it helps a little bit. I do now is like what she they've been doing. The the Graham Norton show haven't they with him from his from his house with a little sort of mini studio setup and he still does his little comedy. Bits in between guests and what he's saying is funny and he's still the same guy he's still is charming and funny as ever hearing those jokes land without any crowd response is really really painful. It puts a completely different complexion on it. I'm of finding myself a company of I'm saying this because I've spent fifteen years talking about. How candle do is the only bad thing about. I'm Alan Partridge but it makes me sort of cry out for some canned laughter. Deny what is this? What is endemic doing to me? So this is going to be like sports office style. Isn't it great? Things Happen to utter silence. And that's going to be a bit jarring all. I think there's two things one think it'll be interesting to see whether we adjust as viewers. It is a different world. Let's assume it's a different world for a long time and we just have to. Kinda of get used to it and we can't do what we used to do anymore. John macular used to fly a Concorde to London every so often he can't do that anymore yes to go on a on another planet. That's the same unknown but there are certain things that Diane Struggle Israel but it is still only sports is not so. Maybe you knew of the game. That doesn't ECON. Flippantly say at a time when we will disgust and made hot felts given heartfelt accounts of whites not just sports come on e. Can't flippantly say I wonder whether we'll find something else within the sports other than just the sound the look. I don't know I'm just. I'm wondering whether whether I will watch the sport. In different ways other senses will become more. Attuned yeah possibly may or may fall out of love with it. That's also possible. I think ultimately the fact that it isn't just sport is actually the strongest argument to bring it back without fans because it's what players need for their livelihood so if they if if there's a way to get the tour back up and running and get the economics of it back up and running without fans that is going to be more important. I think than consideration of whether fans in the stadium will not if if we're going to be able to give these players chance to play with prize money and all that kind of thing then they need to take. That opportunity is going to be weird. But we're going to have to accept that. I think I think that's more. I think that's more important consideration than whether it's a bit weird or not for

"So when I walked through the doors of Song Land. I had no idea who it was going to be four and then when I found out that her was my artist. I'm like I can really hear her singing. This like she would kill it and just take it to a whole other level so for my first take of singing in front of the producers and her I remember. My heart was beating out of my chest. Sweaty palms like short of breath. Like all all of that. I was just so nervous and as a songwriter. I feel like it's even more vulnerable to do something like this because you're going in front of Grammy Award. Winning Songwriter Producers and a Grammy Award winning artist. And you're singing a song that you wrote from your heart you're just spilling your guts out. That was nerve wracking for me. Hello cool to be here. This is a song called wrong places. Let's hear it for all the wrong case. A look all these faces always looking for on one trump concern kill question. Mccain home that just think how I was told young to set but I just love tools. Sentimental looking for someone to write although woods to my instrumental. It's bitch bitches. Only thing green. How does make just onto the god she gets? After I finished singing Ryan header got the piano and he picked up the courts right away I was like Oh my God. He's playing these chords. It's crazy like they were coming up with ideas only me tell me that you think they don't even more like that could be the bridge. They started like changing a few different lines. Who'd have said show me how to love and then we again. I'm always looking for us when wind drunk and faded yes and even like lust with trust to like. It's this is just like when you're warned drunken faded. It was just the coolest constructive criticism that I've never really had the opportunity to have 'cause it's always just been me sending into my phone or just writing in my notes so just to have that bounceback with people that are just so well respected in the industry. I never thought in a million years that I would have that type of opportunity and that in itself was so cool so when I got to move to the second round I remember like like who who am I going to work with. I would be happy any which way because they're all amazing and so. I walked into the room and I saw Ryan. I was so excited. Because I'm such a big Fan of Ryan header as I am with the other producers as well but I just remember like when apologize came out ahead of my space in like anytime I would go. Through break-up apologize would be my song on my space to fit my mood so to even be in his presence. I was like I wanted to like bow down to him. But we sat down at first before even got into the music aspect of it and we just went through line by line and we were like okay. Let's make sure every single line makes sense. I was told him to settle age. Ain't the thing I'm just to sino-middle. Aj thing there at his age thing too sentimental so we changed lyrics to just kind of conclude each line. Originally it was looking for Lebanon. All the wrong places looking for love and all of these faces so we wanted to say looking for love and all the wrong places looking for love and all the wrong faces. We definitely changed that and we changed the end of the hook as well the lines. I've been feeling lonely. Homie told me that you think I'm pretty. Show me how to love again. So that's kind of cool because it keeps it open to the imagination and anyone can really take that line and make it whatever they want to mean and then we actually facetime her. As well which I didn't expect and came up with an idea dinnenn e which I loved so it started with an acoustic element and then started to progressively grow throughout the track.

Not Yours I think we were talking about math in a dozen takes two hours. Let's talk about what about we math? Let's talk about come out okay. So here's the thing. Here's the math. Adding is what will happen. Sanders is senator. Sanders is my turn. This walking you helps a lot. Doesn't it says Joe Biden as he only thing he says here is trump's tweet crazy chaotic democrat debate last night. Fake News said Biden. Did well even though he said. Half of our population reshot the debt. That's true I'll play. That later would be over for most. That would be the end of it for most people. These mini Mike was weakened unsteady but helped greatly by many commercials which are not supposed to be allowed during a debate. Pocahontas was mean and undisciplined. Mostly aiming at crazy Bernie and many Mike. They don't know how to handle her but I know she chucker he says I think he must mean choker unless he's some Yiddish word. That I don't know style was a disaster. Who along with many are setting? Records in dollars per vote. Just give me an opponent. He's he's got it. He has got it. Bernie in the lead because there is a substantial number of people who are disaffected from what's going on and nobody's listening to them in the mainstream but he's also in the lead because they don't have anyone to oppose them and that's what the debate was about last night. It was about the fact that they you know people say well if they would just if they would just clear the Middle Lane. They would just do this if they would just do that. Who Who Biden is so all the can't put an English sentence together. You know Bloomberg is really screwed himself warns plans don't work they don't have anybody to stand as someone who just steps out can stand up to Bernie Sanders. You're not it's drew. It's not that the country has gone socialist. It is that he's the only person who understands that he is speaking for those people who feel left out all right. So let's take a look at the debate. Let's take a closer look at the actual. What was going. You know Margaret Brennan. I think is CBS. They had gayle king big time Democrat donor moderator and they had Nuoro Donald big time. Democrats reporter Margaret Brennan One day at. Cbs somebody. Cbs is going wait a minute. There's someone doing journalism on our television station. And they're going to get Margaret Brennan. She's the only person who actually ask tough questions of everybody. I want to start deepen the debate where she finally got around somebody. Finally I mean if Brennan hadn't been there nobody would have done this. I don't think finally got around to asking Bernie. About the fact that he has sucked up the every communist iron in the world and has now been caught praising. Castro not caught we did on sixty minutes praising Castro this murderous tyrant for his literacy program when he's going into his you know there's a swing state Florida where a lot of those people know exactly. Castro is an art impressed. This cut number twenty. You've praised the Chinese Communist Party for lifting more people out of extreme poverty than any other country. You also have a track record of expressing sympathy for socialist governments in Cuba and in Nicaragua. Can Americans trust that? A democratic socialist president will not give Authoritarians a free pass.

I can't wait to hear it. Actually I don't think I've ever heard any French words with a Spanish Accent while you're here. We go great excited. Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was born on August thirteenth. Nineteen twenty six near beat on in in Cuba's eastern Oriente province. So he was the third of six children. I'm he had two brothers Rahul and Roman all of whom you may have heard and three sisters Angela Augustina. I don't know it. They're spelled like that. No I love your like Angela. uh-huh from the Chicago so his father's name was on hell. He was a wealthy sugar plantation. Asian owner who did most of his business with the American owned United Fruit Company. His mother had been a made to unhealth first wife time of Fidel's birth uh-huh scandal And by the time Fidel was fifteen. His father dissolved his first marriage with his first wife and was in married his mother at age. Seventeen Fidel was formally recognized by his father took that long for his father to be like yes. This is my son and his name was his. Last name was changed from ruse to Castro. So Fidel grew up in wealthy circumstances actually among amid the poverty of Cuba and he was educated in private Jesuit boarding schools. I'm from an early age. Castro showed he was intellectually gifted but was also a little bit of a troublemaker. I'm he was often more interested in sports than studies He attended Clay Hill the lawless in Santiago Cuba and then L. Klay. He'll the Belen in Havana where he was a pitcher for the school's baseball team and he also played basketball and ran track. I'm so how we've talked about like what if Stalin had stayed on whether man academy like what if Hitler had been accepted art school. And there's a similar legend that Castro was scouted by or tried out as a pitcher for the Washington senators in the nineteen forties Mike but was rejected. However there is no actual evidence that he ever had a tryout with Eddie American baseball so later on people tried to use this rumor to attribute Castro's anti-americanism to his bitter disappointment? Failing at a baseball tryout is that seems to be an urban legend but think about the alternate universe where Hitler was an incredible famous artists. Like ooh I haven't had had eight off Hitler in my house. I wonder how much it's worth or like the most famous weather man in Russia. Joe's Uncle Joe Stalin on and Fidel Castro. The the starting pitcher for the senators. He was so cut one. Three world series is up just turned everything around for the real real real alternate timeline. Yeah for sure crazy alternate time line just thought experiment so after Castro graduated from college. wjr Or Klay Hyo as they say in late nineteen forty five. He entered law school at the University of Vienna and he became immersed in the climate of Cuban nationalism. I'm into you. Imperialism and socialism by nineteen eighty-seven cashiered become increasingly passionate about social justice and he traveled to the Dominican Republic to join an expedition attempting to overthrow of the country's dictator Rafael Trujillo. Although the coup failed before it got started the incident still kept Castro's passion for reform alive and he traveled to Bogota Talk Columbia the following year to participate in the anti-government rioting that was their Castro also joined the Partido or tobacco an anticommunist political party founded to reform government in Cuba. It's founder Cuban presidential candidate Eduardo. Sheba's lost the nineteen forty eight election but inspired Castro to become like a big disciple of his He pledged to expose the government's corruption and warned the people about General Fu hence you'll Batista who is plotting a return to power He was the president from nineteen forty. Forty two nineteen forty four in Cuba however she bosses efforts were cut short. After his supposed- allies refused to provide evidence of government wrongdoing and in August nineteen fifty one one Sheba's who did a weekly radio broadcast. He shot himself on Air W-WHAT's trauma. Oh my God I thank God it was radio and TV so this was like Castro's like friend and his mentor. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. So in. Nineteen forty eight years prior to two she. Boss's demise cash remarried Mutai Diaz Balart who is from a wealthy political family in Cuba. They had one child also named Fidel. They nickname him. Missile delicto meaning little Fidel in nineteen. Forty nine so the marriage showed Castro wealthier lifestyle and gave him improved political connections around the same time he developed developed interest in the work of Karl Marx. Hey and became intent on running for a seat in the Cuban Congress in March nineteen fifty to a coup led by General Full Hensel Batista successfully overthrew. The government in the upcoming election was cancelled leaving astro without a legitimate political platform and little income with which to support his family. So Batista's back in office. He set himself up as dictator and solidified his power with the military in Cuba's economic elite and the AD is government recognized by at the United States so cash oh and fellow members of the Party. To- Orthodox organized a group that they called the movement and they planned an insurrection. Oh on July twenty six nineteen fifty-three Castro and about one hundred fifty.

Throw Batista the attack failed and Casher was captured and tried and convicted and sentenced to fifteen years in prison and his brother Rahul was also among those imprison but while incarcerated Castro got his group together he renamed his group the Twenty Sixth of July movement and they continued to coordinate their activities through correspondence respondents in while in prison he and his fellow prisoners were ultimately released in nineteen fifty five under an amnesty deal with the Batista government and he traveled with reinhold Mexico where they continued can you to plan the revolution around the time his wife Michelle left him and like jetted the hell out of there and went to Spain. What about feed the League? I think they left there was still in Cuba assuming fidel had some family members they pro but his wife she empty right off so cashiers in Mexico. He met with other Cuban exiles as well as the Argentinian rebel Ernest Stowe Che Guevara. Hey who believed that. The plate of Latin America's poor could be fixed only through violent revolution curly so Guevarra join castres group and became an important confidante and helped to shape Castro's astros political beliefs on December second nineteen fifty-six. Castro returned to Cuba aboard the boat. Granma I'm sorry. Yeah like Alah Ella. Grandma Grandma G. R. A. N. M. A. is the name of the boat. They run He had about eighty insurgents with them and they had a bunch of weapons and they were near. The eastern city have Manzanillo Batista's forces this who they were attacking Batista's forces killed or captured most of their attackers but Castro as well as his brother Rahul who CHECA Vara and a handful of others were able to escape into the Sierra May Straw mountain range along the island's southern coast so over the next two years Castro's steadily readily growing forces waged a guerrilla war against the Batista Government. My God so they were pouring out of the mountainous jungle. Yeah like yeah attacking their guys. They're on the grandma. They tact group but teases group killed most of them and and then the guys that live like hidden in the woods and manage to like gather support because they were like this was bad where yeah so they so so they basically spend the next two years like growing forces and they organized resistance groups in cities and small towns across Cuba. Cashew was also able to organize is apparently well government. He's able to carry out agrarian reform and controlled provinces with agricultural and manufactured production. While hiding out. So it's kind of like the Cosa Nostra like he was kind of running like a parallel like system. Like a protectorate system in a way Hey So enough people didn't like Batista then they were like well. The guy in the woods is while we've got some good ideas. The guy in the woods has some great ideas so beginning in Nineteen fifty-eight Castro. His forces mounted a series of successful military campaigns to capture and hold key areas throughout Cuba. I'm so combined. With a loss of popular support and massive desertions in his military Batista's government finally collapsed. Under Castro's efforts in January nineteen fifty nine Batista himself fled to the Dominican Republic. So at the age of thirty two. What Astra successfully concluded his guerrilla campaign to take control of Cuba man? What have I been been doing? It really makes you so. According to Encyclopedia Britannica cash was celebrated as a hero for toppling Batista's authoritarian Tehran regime. Okay Yeah Ed Sullivan. The host of America's. TV's most popular really big variety. She flew to Cuba to tape an interview with Castro on January Eleventh Nineteen fifty-nine where surrounded by about one hundred armed men Ed Sullivan talked with Castro. whom he likened to George Washington he called cash show a fine young man which were the same adjectives he also had used to describe Elvis Presley And later that day in Havana Castro taped an appearance for the team. News program face the nation and he also talked with a few other famous. Talk show host and newscaster so Castro. who had yet to declare himself a Marxist said that he thought the American people were quote? Nice Oh oh thanks so he he did all the stuff and he kinda authoritarian regime and everyone was like great job may are young guy. Hi Great Job. Oh boy so here we go. Provisional government was quickly created then with Manuel Unwell installed as president and Jose Meteo Cardona as prime minister and that quickly gained the recognition of the United States and cash show himself arrived in Havana to cheering. Crowds and assume the post of commander in chief of the military in February nineteen fifty-nine mirrow suddenly resigned and Castro was then sworn in as Cuba's Cuba's prime minister and meanwhile hundreds of members of Batista's government were tried and executed so Castro implemented far reaching reforms by nationalizing factories and plantations -tations in an attempt to end. US economic dominance on the island among these reforms it was announced that the new government would based compensation to foreign companies on low property values that the companies. He's had negotiated with the previous Cuban governments in order to keep their taxes low so basically like the American factories came in there. Like what super cheap to build here. So they said well. You're not going to actually make a lot of money off of that because you bought that property for super cheap like trying to trick us. So American companies ended up feeling the negative effects of these measures ocean that led to a significant strain in relations between Cuba and the US. During this time Castro repeatedly denied being a communist but too many Americans has policies closely resembled the Soviet style control of both the economy and government in April nineteen fifty-nine Castro and a delegation visited the US as guests of the National Press Club Cash show hired a public relations firm to help promote his tour but at the time president. Dwight Eisenhower refused. He used a meeting with him in. May that year cash assigned the First Agrarian Reform Act which limited the size of land holdings and forbade foreign property ownership. Oh so even if you have if you were a foreign Foreign country that owned property on Cuba like nope not anymore. Wow yes yeah. So on that surface the intent was to develop a class of independent farmers but in reality that program led to St Louis in control with farmers becoming government. Employees sure. Yeah Yeah and by the end of Nineteen fifty-nine Castro's revolution had become radicalized with purges of military and government leaders including the president who Toria and the suppression of medical of any media. Critical of Castro's policies his government also began establishing relations with the Soviet the Union horse the. US are sent more than one hundred Spanish. Speaking advisors to help organize Cuba's defense committee.

When Atlanta or Savannah you would think this would be easy right then is very charming so but Atlanta Lanta because it has it has it all down almost kicked us both after that all right greatest rapper of all time? The puck rediscover some big events out here real pissed off okay And now I WANNA do word association word that comes to mind with Andrew Gaze thousand dollars free. That's three words but I'm GonNa go with that. You are on message. Melania trump quiet is investors democratic primaries fractured Stacey Abrams okay. Dreamers aspiring Joaquin Castro. Aw Good Looking Guy Guy Guy looks good. Even with that Beard Day knows my next Kosei Astros beard. You trending today. If you haven't noticed all right my last one is reproductive rights and access. Everybody needs okay. You made it through. The okay walks. News is already trying served on okay so one of the things I WANNA get into. We talked on the democratic the primary and rapid round. What right what Democratic candidates right now are you the closest person I've had Good conversations with Really mostly with three people with Gory both went to Stanford Stanford grads here. Angry reciting With Kamala. We've talked on the phone. A couple times was any every time with each other and then with Elizabeth Warren Ohio so I probably talked to warn the most but really what those three and had a good relationship relationships have a good relationship with everybody. I mean they're sixteen other people in right now but those are the people that I've talked about. And when you think about aww candidates in the field right now that you disagree with the most whom you disagree with the most not personally on policy like I don't see there's Too lex light between our physicians probably different for the issues. Obviously on the debate stage made clear by disagreements with Vice President Present Biden on immigration and on healthcare I've also expressed disagreement with Mayor Buddha judge on something so just different for you know I think did Andrew. Yang's approach is a clever approach has some recommended but I don't agree with saying that you're just GonNa get a thousand dollars but we're going to take away any kind of other programs that people can access. Because I don't think so you know there are things that I agree with and things I disagree with that folks said since you brought up Vice President Biden You had a moment to debatable. And I'm interested to hear your broker remember it. I remember it. I wasn't questioning your recollection Speaking of what happened is the Betas challenge on. You remembered winning just two minutes when you think about that vomited there anything about it that you know I know but they were suggesting but in the moment when you're up they're debating responding very quickly and what I was responding to was that he denied that he said That people some people would have to buy hi into his plan and so that was kind of my reflexive response. You know it's interesting to me that if my response had been you know somebody else on that stage aged to corey or Tacoma Lord anybody. I don't think that the media would have run when dat in the same way and I wasn't intending to make the claim that the media went with. But what I saw that night was the what happens when a narrative takes hole and then it just it just goes fire and so I mean it in fact to me one of the interesting things was that whether it was the rude or another a number of other minority publications journalists of color actually gave that moment or more full rendering right but the MSNBC's the world CNN's of the world The New York Times and so forth. There was one narrative in and said I had attacked on his age which that was not letting so so then would you say you're not in just of course you have made it very clear the whole time right. I think it's not your age each necessarily and it's not even your experience necessarily it is the most important thing I really think somebody's judgment. Somebody can be eighty eighty years old and have great judgment and wisdom. Somebody can be forty years old and APP great judgement and from voters. I think it's about identifying edifying. What is the judgment that people have shown? And that's what the whole process is about getting out if I were just you know when I vote. Vote for somebody right. That's what I WANNA know. Like what is their judgment in. What is their vision for the future? When you think about the fact that we're sitting here Orlando? There is another debate. Small It's when Tyler Perry studios you didn't follow by which has to be immensely frustrating of the place a supreme value on the voice and the most of people's on your Atlanta. And I I do want to give you just the moment if you've had an opening statement tomorrow could you give that opening statements in ninety seconds. I would say that That this election is all about the future of our country and how we're going in a move from a president who has tried his hardest to divide us to one who's GonNa try and unite us from the president that wants.
"castro" Discussed on POLITICO's Nerdcast
"Hello NERD casters. This is your host Scott Bland coming up this week. We're going to take a deep deep dive with one of our reporters into how Elizabeth Warren became Elizabeth Warren and also how she made a lot of enemies in the Obama Administration along the way but I of course we are going to talk about the presidential debate. Thursday night in Houston ten candidates met the Democratic National Committee's requirements to make the stage our democratic primary debate starts. That's right now and we're GONNA pick apart a key moment of the debate with politicos national political reporter Schneider Isla. He's got all right so let's get right into it. Here's the moment that really stuck out at us. From a Thursday debate came near the end of a very long opening act of the debate about health care and the different candidates digging into all sorts of nuances and big philosophical differences like about their healthcare plans so we've got Hulan Castro the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development really mixing it up with former Vice President Joe Biden here they went back and forth over some of the finer points of how offer Medicare to Americans who want it but also really really about something else and and you can hear it in the clip you will you can hear the clipper yourself and then we'll go into it. The clip runs about two minutes. We're GonNa let the whole thing. Play out and then we're GONNA walk back through it. It's true who I grew up with a grandmother who had diabetes and I watched her condition. Get worse and worse but that whole time she had Medicare. I want every single. American can family to have a strong Medicare plan available if they choose to hold on to strong solid private health insurance. I believe they should to be able to do that but the difference between what I support and what you support Vice President Biden is that you require them to opt in and I would not require them to opt in. They would automatically be the enrolled they wouldn't have to buy in. That's a big difference because Barack Obama's vision was not to leave ten million people uncovered he wanted every single person in this country covered my plan would do that. Your plan would not have to buy in do not have to buy you just said that. You just said that two minutes ago. You just said two minutes ago that they would have to buy. Why if you said they would have to buy qualifier you forgetting what you said what you said just two minutes this ago? I can't believe that you said two minutes ago that they had to buy in and now you're saying they don't have to but you're forgetting that anyway. I mean look grandmother who adds has no money healthcare automatically enrolls people regardless of whether they choose to opt in or not if you lose your job for for instance his his health care plan would not automatically enroll you would have to opt in my health care plan. Would that's a big difference. I'm fulfilling fulfilling the legacy a Bronco Bama and you're not be surprised to him Andrew Yang. This is why debates are becoming unwatchable reminds everybody of what they cannot stand about. Washington points against each other oh king at each other and telling each other that did your plan your plan. Look we all that's called the Democratic primary election out of called the election election. You know this is what we're here for. It's an election hundred house. Divided cannot stand and that is not how we're no. We're on the same team here. We know where the same team. We all have a better a lot a lot to unpack here so so I up lane the the entry point of this whole thing is about forty five minutes really at the beginning of the debate debate of discussion about this big philosophical difference kind of breaking up the Democratic primary field. It's about whether to they make incremental changes to Obamacare and the healthcare system or go for a big a big change in in Medicare for all and the pros and cons of all those things and then also a lot of really nuanced differences in just like how to implement those those different things and how long have you taken so on and so forth right to healthcare kicked off this presidential debate in part because the two main options for the help path four and on healthcare sat at centerstage Joe Biden who believes that the Democrats should build on obamacare extend a public option versus people like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders who believe in eliminating the private healthcare industry and fully implementing a government run system through Medicare for all those are two diametrically opposed options for how to approach this healthcare system and then of course. We've got a number of people who are in between those two ends of the spectrum. We've got people judge who has a Medicare for all who wanted plan. You've got a better aerobics Medicare for America plan. Hey Comma Harris also has a plan of her own sort of all giving variations on somewhere between building on obamacare giving a public option sort of saying saying you know we're GonNa let the the market sort of helped decide whether or not this country's going to fully move over to Medicare for all look again. It's very complicated. There are a lot of options that were being being floated and in all of that sort of broader philosophical policy discussion there was this cutting slicing moment that cashier delivered against against Joe Biden Yeah and then there's there's folks Castro who are kind of like Medicare for all adjacent right who he hasn't really latched himself onto a particular plan but he he wants the Medicare or something something like it to be available to. Everyone and you can hear that in the story. He's telling about how is available for his grandmother. I grew up with a grandmother who had type two diabetes and I watched condition get worse and worse but that whole time she had medicare but then he's he's still going for the contract here. In Vice President Biden who has is kind of a similar sounding policy and then all of a sudden the moment is not about Medicare for all the nuances healthcare system the healthcare system Julio Castro takes the moment somewhere very different forgetting what you said for just two minutes and workable moment and in fact they were there are definitely gasps in the newsroom as as Castro started to really drill into Joe Biden there and I guess when the audience I can't believe exactly exactly yeah and I think that that you know look. It's it's it's a really really difficult line to walk of sort of pointing out the elephant in the room which there are the three leaders on this debate stage in terms of national polling are all in their seventies and certainly a concern that has been brought up time and time again with Joe Biden is sort of gaps in memory. Joe Biden has gotten to a lot of trouble lately by mixing up really important details about troops who've been honored about their services that they've done in war and and look he he has said in sort of defensive that will the details don't matter as long as sort of the broad conversation conversation is accurate. I think that people that Castro would get on stage and say actually the details really do matter and he was trying to make that point by by by going after jour- implicitly and explicitly Biden's age and really pointing out the fact that he what he thought was was sort of Him Mis remembering what he had just said on stage two minutes ago but of course as we went back into the transcript and actually reread with the vice president president said cashier actually didn't get it quite right and in fact Biden did say he said anyone who can't afford it gets automatically enrolled into the Medicare type option. That's the quote from by anyone who can't afford it automatically clean enrolled in the in the in the Medicare type option. We have Biden it also said at a different point that you know you can automatically buy into this which implies I think what what Castro was criticizing sizing is that it's not automatic automatic eligibility versus automatic action and there's also but now we're getting into a very very nuanced difference of of policy. Also you like the type of the deep in the weeds. This is what like Congress deals with you go to the Senate and the Health Committee and this this is not something that's going to become from the way things are just because of the way it is on the trail. My plan would do that. Your plan would not have to buy astro came was was like coming ready to rumble right because then people to judge the silent and be like whoa everyone just reminds everybody of what they cannot stand about Washington points against each other and knock him in the mouth to your plan your look we all know that's called the Democratic primary election election. That's an election this what we're here for that. Amy Klobuchar diving into the fray wrapping her fellow mid Western candidate. I'll be it from one hundred fifty years ago. Abe Lincoln House divided cannot stand come in with with Ken Lines but this one was was particularly it difficult to to take and that is not how we're on the same team not only that I did not expect or did not have Andrew Yang settling a peace deal among the Democrats on my Bingo card but we got that tonight team here. We know where the same team. We all have Castro saying I'm paraphrasing here. Basically shut shut up nerd to judge each smick sit down old man. You don't know what you're talking about. I mean all those moments happened in the span of very few minutes it's again. It's it's emblematic of of what all of these candidates need dry and do Castro's trying to make a moment for himself pointing out a real well concern weakness in the front runner to build up his own operation to build his own profile while somebody like people gestures trying to come in here and sort of present himself self as the person who rises above but it's sort of again it's it's really getting at so many different tensions that have been sort of percolating under the surface of the Democratic primary that sort of burst into the light and just a few minutes on this primary stage yeah absolutely and really quickly here at the end. Elena I mean you've written several times over the past few weeks about the different different ways in which some of the lower pulling candidates are just starting to feel the pressure right. Now I mean some of them are feeling the pressure in having been completely left out of tonight's festivities right the the folks who didn't qualify for the debate sage but there's still also among the folks who were there like Castro who've been stuck polling around one to three percent for a very long time now and the Iowa caucuses is starting to loom rate is this the fall is here. We've past Labor Day. We can't wear white anymore like this is now now wearing white pants right now this is this is the moment where these candidates particularly those who've sort of languished in the low to mid single digits have to start showing up in a way that's much more aggressive. Sometimes it turns into a murder suicide mission where they try and take out a top polling candidate and in fact end up killing themselves in the process because they can't you know they're seen as mean or too tough or whatever it might be that that voters are turned off more broadly on them but also it can turn trend to a good moment for them all right. We'll leave it there. Elena thank you so much for breaking down that moment. Thanks for having me coming up. We're going to talk a little bit about the origins of Elizabeth warns populism and political career but first we're GONNA listen to a little highlight reel here of the best worst and clearly most prepared in front of a bathroom mirror are jokes from that Thursday night presidential debate play radio make sure the television excuse me make sure you have the record player on. I made sure the kids here words. He reminds me of that that guy and the wizard of Oz pull back the curtain. It's a really small dude okay. I'm not even GonNa take the Bait Senator. Take the sentence now. Look I'm the only person on the stage that finds Trudeau's hair very menacing but they are not a national security threat the Asian so I know a lot of doctors Houston. We have a problem should more Americans including those given Texas and the follow your diet first of all. I want to say no. Actually I want to translate that into Spanish. No the page oh it says saying we can't let say yes we can. I hope you all enjoyed those as much as as I did as an expert teller of dad jokes.

We'll also delve into Ariel Castro's formative years in Puerto Rico and and into his history of abuse toward his wife Granada Figueroa and their four children next week will delve into the lives of Castro's other two victims Amanda Berry and Gina dejesus Born on July tenth nineteen sixty Ariel Castro was the youngest on this son of Pedro Castro in Lillian Rodriguez. The Castro family had lived in a small village outside of Yoko Puerto Rico for years accumulating land land which they passed down through generations but despite this inherited property the Castros existed in near squalor without electricity running water during aerials early childhood his father Pedro had harbored a long standing affair with a young neighbor ultimately Midgley this affair resulted in four other children and Lillian soon discovered Pedro's other family upon Confronting Pedro Pedro declared to Lillian that he was leaving her and their children for good he immediately moved out of the home and in with a young woman and his four other children hurt and dejected Lillian Divorced Pedro soon after she immigrated to Pennsylvania leaving four year old aerial all in his three siblings in Puerto Rico aerial would later right. I was abandoned by my father and later by mother. My grandma raised me. According to interviews with Ariel Castro he was raised with very little adult supervision he claimed to have been subjected to sexual abuse at the hands ends of another boy and nine year old family friend when he was just five years old years later when asked about his abuse in why he never spoke spoke to anyone about it he confessed in an eerily prophetic way stating people who are abused keep quiet so I did two years after leaving Puerto Rico Lillian sent for her four children and in one thousand nine hundred sixty six at six years old aerial move to the united it states almost as soon as they arrived. Lillian started verbally and physically abusing her kids daily using her open hand belts and even sticks to discipline them aerial once told a psychiatrist that he would often ask God for her to die however however during his abuse area would come to find comfort in music one fateful Christmas areas uncle Julio Castro or sexy he came to visit the family with presence for his nephews he gifted aerial little guitar and areas love for music blossomed he he would regularly entertain the Castros at family gatherings and it was evident to his uncle. That Ariel had a gift his talent for playing the bass came naturally in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight when Ariel was eight years old. His father moved his new family to Cleveland for a fresh start in America he was soon enjoined by two of his brothers and the family opened a handful of small businesses including a used car lot a grocery store and even Latino record shop the Castro brothers flourished in Cleveland with their entrepreneurial pursuits and soon pedro. Se reestablished the preeminence of the Castro Astro family name that they once enjoyed in Puerto Rico despite the bad blood between aerials parents in nineteen seventy aerials mother Lillian can also relocated her family to Cleveland in one thousand nine hundred seventy six sixteen year-old Ariel attended Lincoln West High School and thrived. He was a popular well liked student and soon he joined his first. Latin band called Los Tainos as the Bass player after graduating high school. Ariel began playing around the city and earned himself the reputation of a skilled and respected musician and Cleveland's Latin music scene gene not long after in nineteen eighty twenty year old aerial took a liking to a shy neighborhood girl named Gra Milta- Figueroa Granada or MILTA- was just seventeen at the time and live down the street with her five siblings. Nilda fell for aerial right away and the Figueroa family family was delighted that she had found someone kind to take care of her. Their relationship moved quickly and Nilda soon got pregnant. She gave birth birth to their first child aerial. Anthony Castro junior in September of Nineteen eighty-one according to Nilda sister alita Ariel treated Nilda well he was real good to her that this would only last for a little while it was shortly after becoming a father at twenty one that Ariel started exhibiting controlling and irrationally possessive behavior towards Nilda he he frequently demanded that she bring their infant son to a club where Ariel played nightly gigs so that he could show him off if she refused brutality Carlotti would follow one of the first times aerial attacked. Nilda was during a simple disagreement. Nilda later described this initial abuse abuse saying he just punched me in the face and grabbed me by the head and threw me back against the concrete floor the second time. He punched me so hard that he broke my nose. Nilda was terrified of what Ariel might do next if she told even or close family about how he'd beaten her in order to cover up any traces of her injuries she became skilled at using makeup to conceal black eyes and bruises she would even even wrap her face tightly in a scarf in an attempt to obscure the damage aerial had done to her the night before when Nilda got pregnant for the second time in Nineteen eighty-two with their daughter Angie his rage grew one time when Nilda was slow to clean up the kitchen due to morning sickness. S. aerial punched her in the mouth knocking out her two front teeth before Ariel would allow Nilda to be taken to the hospital title for treatment. He demanded that she promised not to report his abuse on. This was aerials routine. No matter how severe the injury after one particularly violent attack when NILDA was required to get forty stitches for a head wound aerial still refuse to let her seek treatment until she froude never to say a word Nilda would later explain. That's the only way he would let me into the hospital. He wanted me to die that that day he wanted me to bleed to death eventually doctors at Grace Hospital where Nilda frequently sought treatment had grown familiar. You're with Nilda and her injuries. It became clear that she was the victim of domestic violence however without her consent they could not report the abuse to authorities their hands were tied even when the couple moved to nil this father's home to save money aerials brutal temper didn't subside aside his violence against Nilda continued to build reaching dangerous proportions. Nilda routinely rushed herself to the emergency room. I shattered rib broken nose or multiple serious concussions in nineteen eighty eight. Nilda gave birth to their third child.

I said that if you look around nobody who grew up there grew up as a front runner that I can't think of a single time in my life where I've been front runner and today in our country. There are a whole bunch of people who don't feel like front runners and the during this campaign, I'm going to go speak to them. And I think that that's going to resonate. I'm on the crowd. I think so we're going to have a crowded primary. So you know, we may have fifteen or twenty people there, but I have a strong vision for the future of this country. I said on Saturday that what we need to him for is to be the smartest the healthiest the fairest and the most prosperous nation on earth. And I'm going to do the hard work of making my pitch. I was in Puerto Rico the day after my nouncement because I wanted people to know that everybody should count in this country. Our fellow Americans. Talked about him without thank you for doing that for going to to put a Rico. I know that it was your first campaign. Stop and I was struck by that because my family is from there. Why did you go there? Because clearly the people from the island can't vote for you. Oh, you know, because I think today a lot of Americans whether they're in the little neighborhood LA eat in San Juan Puerto Rico that I visited that is still struggling with their their their in small town, Ohio and factory jobs have laughed over the last few years. A lot of people feel forgotten people in urban Detroit all over the place. And I wanted to send a strong message from the beginning that if I'm president you matter and your family matters. How do you think Trump has such an antipathy towards Puerto Rico? What is the problem with Puerto Rico because he failed he failed the people of Puerto Rico, and he wants to obscure that failure. Wants to make people what he's trying to do is to to make people think that somehow it was their fault. But it wasn't there fall. But he didn't seem interest interested in helping them in the first place. So that failure was delivered almost and he went further because I don't know if it's true, but the number two official at department of HUD, and that's the agency that you ran under President Obama reportedly just resigned over his attempts to block federal relief money for Puerto Rico. He apparently said this he did not want a single dollar going to the island federal relief money. Why I think part of that is the ego with the president. You know, why are we why are eight hundred thousand families going without a paycheck right now? Because of his ego about building this wall, and it is. The thing is I don't think that we've ever had a president. That was so bad about the naval to put the country. First he puts his ego. I whether it's building the wall and not getting Puerto Rico money. And and that's why I think that in addition to investigating what happened at HUD. I hope they do that. I hope that the house and the Senate do that we need to change in leadership. And that's why I'm running for president night, one of the largest criticisms of President Trump is his lack of experience, and you have no foreign policy experience whatsoever. You also said vehemently you are not going to run for president. I didn't understand when you announce why you didn't want to run for Senate, we're possibly for governor ran against Abbott in two thousand eighteen Cornyn and twenty twenty here's an up and coming rising democratic star the cynical side of me thinks maybe you're just doing this because it'll get.

"I have received is a form of indoctrination which tells the castro side of the story and amidst all the other perspectives so it'll be interesting to see fifteen years from now let's say ten fifteen years from now be very very interesting to see what these younger people actually do and whether in fact all of this required a affirmation of the great triumph of the reformation brought on by fidel through his revolution whether whether that will change pedro for you go back and forth from florida to cuba quite a bit what are what are you here especially from young people and are there expectations different you think that that could lead in a different direction for cuba yes yes their expectations are different and and and i do i mean i was listening to patrick and that resonated that folks are very much worried about wallet issues and and younger folks in particular and younger folks also are very much focused on undetected spics you know this thing the ability to access the internet and so forth and i think the push and i think the challenge for will is to make sure that he he steps in line with the expectations of the younger folks and one of the things that is very peculiar about goo accu just goes back to the inventiveness issue is that notwithstanding the absolute government control over the media and so forth cubans find a way to find out what the heck's going on and there's something called packet they which is basically have these flash drives with news programs and movies and information and people trade data and sell it and circulated and so forth so it is absolutely astonishing to me and i've seen this in have anna and i've seen it in out of the way places like seeing foibles which is a smaller city up the coast that people are very very aware of what the heck's going on now all that you need to take with.

"This is hard maybe we should try to get him on the show were reached out to him why would rubber cooler think those final images were so powerful or impressive if it's just acuna walking away i want i mean it's it's clearly meant to be a showcase sequence they hold the same frane right for a long time until acuna is out of the frigates i'm just trying to evade is referencing you know the fact that it's sort of a statement sequence yeah i don't i just like i said i saw him is finally making the decision to leave them alone and maybe that is what's happening maybe it is an you talked about sort of the politics of the movie and maybe what it's trying to say and it might be folly to try to go to deal with the movie but i think that there are as we put it in the context of this marathon at least through two films any there are shades in castro of a lot of the protagonists from extraordinary stories and the the characters not just castro but the ones chasing him i think as well in castro where they're in this film and out his direct about it but we talked a lot during that conversation about extraordinary stories about the idea of purpose right characters having this conflicted idea of who they are what they are what they're supposed to be doing with their lives and they get sidetracked by these digression they start chasing people right chasing ghosts in a lot of ways and extraordinary stories and castro it it goes a step further than the guy in the hotel from extraordinary stories who secluded himself in hotel room here castro actually just tries most of them to stay in the closet and i feel like it ended that did this note doesn't really but it seems a crazy sort of extension of what we see in stories if it wasn't for the other people he probably wouldn't feel compelled to interact with society at all and you then look at those chasing him instead of leaving their own lives.

"Uh so what rally missing the core lots of contemporary argentine film so he can really come true i've x um here's how worked for me i did find the moment where castro is so he's in the rain in a car following with the lights in the white burr's pointlessly found a pretty affecting i thought it was a nice touch four this mental state that he's found himself in you know because i think there is something here about what's the point of work if you can't find work that you love ya unlike about that a little by yet right i th i think there's something they in this movie that is is pretty powerful but then it makes another move after that and i didn't buy it at all in terms of how it fit with the rest of the movies tone sued the very last final very last a decision and other character makes you didn't buy no no no no the the decision castro makes it how severe it is and what the implications are still not sure i'm not sure how to read it a you make it seem much more dire yet and i started at vail i thought and i thought it was final because of the other characters response okc if you see it more like i do and i'm not saying i'm right all bets are off for this film then the decision implies something different may okay so i mean we can just say sellers so you're suggesting that you think castro observable turkey succeeds in killing himself okay the movie wants us to see yet even though the way who runs into the wall doesn't suggest that that would kill him see that's that's kind of the problem i guess maybe i can get over the littoral nece of him not driving nearly fast now so the way eyesight josh was him probably trying to kill himself but for certain it's a it's an act of frustration and what an expression of a certain feeling of futility or whatever and so since i didn't necessarily see it as even if.
