"And mostly because you know, showed when it mattered most right now what little heat there has been on the Clippers since that tank job is falling on Paul, George and team chemistry and again, I'm going to ask If the team chemistry was that bad, and there were reports of how bad it was going back to January. How the hell did they not fix it? How does Doc Rivers not get on top of that? And as long as we're talking about, guys skating, man do not sleep on Kwai Leonard. If he's the superstar. We thought that he waas. He has to take a ton for this loss. In fact, he should take Maura than Paul George, because unlike pandemic P Hawaii has actually been there twice, actually done that quiet, actually, one in the postseason. And yes, I understand that, By all accounts, this is not the most vocal leader. I'm not sure anybody expected that he would be. Nobody's going to look at Kawai and expect him to be Winston Churchill. But the phrase did thrown around with Kawai is he is more of a quote, lead by example, Guy. Great. That's fine. Leadership can show up in a lot of different ways. But if you're a lead by example, guy and you go one for 11 in the second half of a game seven. Exactly what example are you leading with? If you're going to fall back on your actions, and your actions are awful. Where does that leave your team? Where does that leave you as a leader, and it wasn't just the one for 11 shooting. It was the general disinterest and lack of passion from this guy again. Exactly what example are you leading with? Hey, yo, fellas. Let's not let's not bring it in. Let's all shoot terribly and look like we all want to be someplace else. Let's all dig deep and find a way to blow this game right now. Let's get the hell out of here. Let's blow this game, blow this joint and get whatever beach or golf course that we really want to be. At. Mick. You imagine of LeBron went one for 11 in the second half of a game seven and generally look like you want to be anywhere but right there on the floor. Can you imagine the sort of heat that he would take? This guy would be destroyed in the media for weeks and months on and nobody would ever let him forget that. But one week later with the Clippers, it's more or less for gotten. It's almost like it didn't even happen. Everybody just kind of shrugs off Kawai eyes rolling this collapse. It seems like everybody says, Yeah, well, team chemistry wasn't great. There's always next year. By the way, it's not like team chemistry has to be great for a team to win. Did you see the last dance? That was not exactly a brotherhood? Hell didyou hear Jeff Pearlman on this show yesterday, Kobe Bryant. Punched Samaki Walker in the head over 100 bucks. Walker threw a Discman and his head, Kobe and Shaq. We're not exactly brothers, they managed to stack wins. The Clippers straight choked this year. You have to look long and hard to find a more disappointing team and effort than what you saw from these guys yet nobody is saying Jack They're skating. Maybe it's because they're the Clippers, and nobody ever expects anything from them. But instead, they went right into the tank. Speak like that happen in September. When there's football and not June, when everybody would have been focused on that catastrophic joke. I mean, if a team votes that badly in the forest, and no one's there to see it doesn't make a sound, apparently not. But I heard it and I saw it and I know they're not getting nearly the heat that they deserve for.

If your attitudes infectious, why have been attitude So all the things that I try to teach and I try to convey are really really simple. One of the things that I noticed because it. So prominent is your connection to history and you love to read you told me there are a lot of names and faces that are very recognizable. A lot of references to people that you consider. Heroes Harry Truman, the Beatles as you mentioned. Let's let's get this. I'm sorry the stones, their heroes straight. Okay. Sorry. I. I am an ardent student of history. I. Understand Giordano, those the forget history are doomed to repeat it. So as I explained to Jordan earlier, he also has little ad day that might true heroes are to Americans and to to Brits my American heroes or the person. I consider to be the most accomplished person that has ever dwelled in America I remember Ben Franklin Ben Franklin See I. Discovered electricity. When Jefferson wrote, we hold these true sacred and self evident. He crossed out sacred said, we should have a separation of church and state. He was instrumental modeling the declaration but the Constitution right famously said what kind of government who you formed a republic if you can keep it, that's not enough where he was chasing around Paris in his seventies. Novak with back then bengals play. Any nice glasses and the coolest probably stoves who was founding father I jumped from him to Harry Truman. How great would it be whether? You're Democrat, Republican and Independent Libertarian whatever. To have a president that looked you in the eye and took responsibility for whatever it was good bad or indifferent who when he said the buck stops here. He meant it 'cause usually when when politicians say I take full responsibility what they really mean is offering somebody that's a low level subordinate. We jumped to the Brits. Thank God. Winston Churchill rebounded from some of the mistakes he made and World War One. He tried to warn Neville Chamberlain that perhaps appeasing Hitler was not the best idea and finally he was named Prime Minister and basically saved Britain sheerly by grit and determination I happen to think Martin Luther King was an incredibly inspired speaker. A Bill Clinton was a terrific speaker. Nobody can touch Winston Churchill to have the country be this close to falling apart. And keeping people bound up by his own determination. I mean he was Jim Valvano we before Jim Nevada were never given up. Then he had a romance FDR Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Roosevelt was an incredibly charismatic leader, but he had a little problem digging in with the truth if he had five different people in his office in the morning, all five different people heard a different story where Truman looked Gi.

"Nineteen, forty, three and forty five. The USSR hadn't forgotten America's participation in the armed intervention against the Bolsheviks in the Russian civil war as well as its long refusal to recognize the Soviet Union as a legitimate country. Stalin was rightfully feared abroad and at home. The actual death toll of his regime will never truly be known. No one will dispute that it runs into the million. People disappeared for the slightest reason. Some were sent to Gulags prison camps where they would be worked or starved to death if they didn't freeze I. While, others were executed on the spot. Stalin's senior officers, their homes and offices bugged by the secret police were all terrified of him. He refused to trade prisoners of war with Germany to get his own son back. A son he had mocked after a failed suicide attempt by saying, he couldn't even shoot straight. Stalin even had his own personal physician jailed as a British spy after the doctor suggested, maybe he take it a little easy in his later years. This and one other factor brought down an absolute tyrant. Stalin's personal guards were as frightened of him as anyone else. He had given them explicit instructions that he was not to be disturbed except in the case of a state emergency. He didn't need to say on pain of death it was kind of understood. So it came to pass on the morning of March second nineteen, fifty, three that the guards didn't go into Stalin's quarters even as the clock ticked past the hour, he would normally arise. By the time one of them mustered the courage to open Stalin's bedroom door that evening. Stalin. had been laying on the floor incapacitated by a stroke for as long as sixteen hours. He died a few days later, ceiling his chapter of the often brutal history, of Russia. To the East in the Pacific Theater of World War Two, another tiny detail changed the course of history for every occupied continent of the globe. Most public school education and pop culture such as video games and movies focus on European battles almost entirely ignoring the Pacific. War. I can tell you from my own experience as a survivor of the American public school system that we were really keen on the European theater. All we really got on the Pacific Theater was Pearl Harbor and the nukes I don't remember ever having been told anything about what Japan did to China, and if you're not sure what I'm referring to. Well there's the problem. Anyway. The one thing from the Pacific theater that I would lay money. We were all taught the attack on Pearl Harbor saw American casualties of over thirty, five hundred airmen and sailors along with the loss of two destroyers and nearly two hundred aircraft. And it actually went downhill from there. For the next six months, Japan dominated the Pacific skies with their ace six zero fighters winning nearly every battle against less experienced American pilots in technologically. Planes. Attacks and occupations of China which began in the nineteen thirties had killed between fifteen and twenty million people. One out of every six American POW's taken after the fall of Singapore with. It would take the loss of four aircraft carriers at the battle of Midway which saw ten marines killed for every Japanese combatant. To begin to push the Japanese forces back. Held near Berlin in July nineteen forty-five the Potsdam conference was the last meeting of the big three heads of state. President Harry S Truman who had recently succeeded Roosevelt upon his death British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet premier. Joseph Stalin. The established a council of foreign ministers and central allied. Control Council for Ministration of Germany. Although talks centered primarily on postwar Europe. The Big Three also issued a declaration demanding unconditional surrender from Japan. After their terms were translated into Japanese. They waited anxiously for a reply from Japanese Prime Minister Cantero. Suzuki. The terms included a statement to the effect. Any negative answer from Japan would invite prompt and utter destruction. Newspaper reporters in Tokyo pressed the prime minister to say something about Japan's position. No formal decision had been reached and Suzuki replied mugshots. The word suck to derived from the word for silence can be interpreted in several different ways. Suzuki. Meant it as the standard reporter brushoff no comment. However, translators for media agencies in the West interpreted the word to mean that Suzuki was ignoring the surrender demand that it was not worthy of comment and he was treating it with silent contempt. The Americans took this reported air against mean that there could never be diplomatic end to the war. The atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima ten days later. The mistranslation, a single word helped to bring about death of seventy thousand people instantly. and. A hundred, thousand more as the result of the destruction and radiation. In fairness blame could be split between whoever decided to translate it as one meaning without considering another or to the prime minister himself for using such an ambiguous term. I know some people who have a better way with words. Again, it's not a great segue. This is a hard episode to do those in, but I want to thank folks who have left reviews for the podcast recently such as one from Trucker Matt. New Favorite. PODCAST five stars. Heard moxie on hysteria fifty, one great program. By the way gave her show a listen and was immediately hooked moxie voice and delivery combined with the amount. Of fact, she gets into a half hour show and the facts themselves make for a show. That's impossible not to bench the back catalog while waiting impatiently for the new episode. Moxie you've got a listener for life or as long as you do the podcast ps how `bout a burlesque episode since that's your background. Or is there one in the back episodes I haven't gotten to yet? Well thank you for the kind words, trucker, Matt, and for following me over from hysteria fifty one I don't know why I haven't done an episode about burlesque I've never shy about. It I mean for pity's sake I produced the only George Martin approved game of thrones burlesque show, and we got to play for the man himself. Which I need to stop bragging about because it's been five years and it's turning into the guy who still shows up at high school in his letterman jacket even though he's thirty. But thanks to everyone who leaves reviews for the podcast as well as for the book such as Ashley. Be Who said, I love her podcast. So I had to get the book and I love it. It's a great read that keeps me interested in wanting to know more. Thank you Ashley that is exactly my goal and Janet left possibly the most interesting review I've ever gotten on anything in my life. As. Entertaining as the podcast full of fabulous facts from cover to cover and what covers their kind of soft and slip resistant. WHO's this by design they are reassuring and.

An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson

"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

Why Cancel Culture Is Solvable

"It some level canceled cultural is these are arguments about language, what you are and aren't allowed to say how things are are pronounced. How did you first fall in love with the quirks in hiccups of language what drew you to this this field? I'm a linguist not for the reasons that I think many people might expect. It's not that I was especially well traveled as a child. Both of my parents spoke only English if I hear somebody speaking something other than English. I had this visceral desire to WanNa do it too like I'd like to understand what they're saying, but also I wanna be able. To, do that the first time I heard anybody speaking something other than English was brew actually I found myself thinking I am so jealous of that girl that she can talk in that way that I can't understand for me originally, it was just that they're the seven thousand different codes and I don't WanNa know only one. So I also speak several languages. Tell me what you think about English what does it do well, and what does it do poorly do we debate a certain way in? English, we do actually but I'd love to know what you think. We're oddly unfussy language about all sorts of things that other languages make you mark and pay attention to because we're language of the long written history. We have a kind of artificially preserved enormous vocabulary and that's true of any language with a long written history. English is one of them and it means that you have unnecessarily large collections of synonyms that allow you to express yourself in various. Ways, I find. English to be in. It's funny people who are into the speeches of Winston Churchill et CETERA. Think I'm crazy but I find English crude. It's fascinating we streamlined but it's other languages where I find myself just drowning in subtleties in the things that they have to say that we have to leave the context. Yeah I. Actually wonder if that isn't run reasons why English is universal language because in fact, it's pretty easy to speak bad. English doesn't doesn't require a lot of grammatical knowledge. It's that simple speak it badly quite easily, which is not true of actually most one. Yes, exactly. As a linguistic professor do how do you navigate sensitive language debates is there are different way to do it. There are certain things that you're taught. You are not supposed to say in our society. I'm just somebody who won I like to keep things tidy. I like to make a case I think really I should have been a lawyer I. Don't know if I would have been good one but that's kind of mind that I think I have and also I wanna find stuff out and I watch other people being told that they're not allowed to. Happen to me two or three times in my own academic career I. Don't think it's right and I have a hard time keeping quiet when I don't think something's right. One person said about me once the when John Gets Mad, he writes a book and that's more or less true I. I. Just can't help I want things to be better than they are on cranky. What do you think of the term canceled culture? What do you think it now means well, we're already getting beyond it in a way or at least I i. hope we can because originally the idea was that if originally by that I mean say two years ago. The idea was that if we find out something unsavory and often genuinely unsavory about some celebrity that we're supposed to flush them from our consciousness as much as possible and so that has become more extreme lately is accepted by a larger number. Of people and I think it's I could say dangerous but it's also just really unfair it's immoral and yet I, think most of us are inclined to pretend to go along with it because we're really frightened of a certain weapon that that crowd have which is that they can call you a racist or sexist. That's something that we need to renegotiate and where is the desire to cancel people coming from and you said that crowd those people who who are they in where what's their motive do you think? This is what it is. Critical race theory, what it is is people who have. Drunken an idea that battling power differential that disadvantage people is the central goal of. Being any kind of moral actor in society and that it must center what we consider intellectual increase to be. It must center what we consider art be. It must send her what we consider humor to be that that one thing must be what it's all about. The even civility goes out the window, which is not crazy. Many people say what these people have to be so mean, but you wouldn't ask. That if it was about pedophilia, nobody thinks that we should be very gentle in ejecting a pedophile from general

Activists demanding justice for Breonna Taylor protested on Kentucky Derby Day

"The first Saturday in May. But this is Kentucky Derby Day after the postponing of the race is just one reason the 146 Derby is one for the history books As W. F B L Stephanie Wolf explains. Security often referred to as the two most exciting minutes in sports. The Kentucky Derby is also a marquee social event days. A fanfare Parties parade, a massive firework show. Ah, a lot of that is gone this year due to the global pandemic and even more notable None of 155,000 plus fans in the grandstands a revision Churchill Downs, the home of the Derby made recently. That's not all That's different this year. Louisville just marked 100 consecutive days of protest against racism and police violence and demonstrators plan to make Derby 101 days. Several groups held a press conference near Churchill Downs Friday. This's Ehren Jordan of No justice, No peace Louisville. We have several black organisations behind us, and we have full intent to black out their happened demands to cancel dirty something that's never been done before. Haven Harrington is CEO and host of main event sports radio. He's covered the Derby for years. He thinks it should be run. It's the city's signature event. But while the horse racing industry doesn't often weigh in on social justice issues, Harrington says, Now is not the time for silence in this town, you know, which is still waiting on bated breath for what's gonna happen with You know Briana Taylor and the officers involved can't just be big hats in pretty dresses. You have to say and do something to acknowledge the situation. Churchill Downs did issue a statement Thursday afternoon, acknowledging how black jockeys once dominated the race, but were then excluded and acknowledging the pain community members feel right now as they wait for the state attorney general and FBI to conclude their investigation into the police, killing a Briana Taylor. It's important to carry on, says Churchill Down CEO Bill Car Stange in here he is talking on CNBC support for hewing important are our traditions and culture in our community. Tell me how this will unify the community. The running of course, poet activist Hannah Drake lives near Churchill Downs. She's had a simmering frustration with the Derby for years. Even more. So, she says, as she faces arrest for obstructing the highway by protesting in the streets. But I for Darby, too inconvenient me and block off street, not let me pass that fine. Drake, who is black, recently wrote a letter to the CEO asking for some self reflection of the institutions, lack of black representation and a lack of in her opinion, compassion. This is the institution that can redeem itself and they need to start by asking himself. How can we be better neighbors? So this Adjacent community and to the very one way she thinks they could do better is by dumping a tradition, she says, is rooted in racism.

Shinzo Abe: Japan's PM resigns for health reasons

"Well Shinzo Abe was Japan's longest-serving later and he surprised the world last week with his resignation. Now, alibi had been in power at an early stage in two thousand and six, hundred seven, and that I turn was cut short by the same illness that prompted him to leave power in late August. Now, when he departed politics the first time this is in two thousand and seven virtually all the experts they will wrote obeys political obituary however, one Australian diplomat who has fallen Japanese politics closely for half a century he didn't off by indeed he predicted a remarkable political comeback any kept in touch with our by during his wilderness years. When I buy shocked the political world bartending power five years later in two thousand, twelve that Australian as it happens hit become ambassador to Japan and relations between our two nations became close them. Bruce Miller was Australia's ambassador to Japan from eleven to twenty seventeen bruce welcome to our in. Lobby to be here. Join you. Now tell us more about the night show of your relations with. Well look thanks for the very generous comments. Just made just doing my job and that is getting to know everyone matters and bring influence to ban to advance Australia interests now. I had known since I bet a previous postings in Japan had forty association with the country but I suppose it was when I ride back in. Japan in two thousand eleven as ambassador. That I actually sought him out at a time when he was a down and out he was as you said, he'd step down for the prime ministership in two thousand seven a know what he's going to be pm again now I went around calling all sorts of people in my first few months in the job as ambassador and one of the machine. So I've. Talked to him quite a bit of the year or two between my rival and him returning to the Prime Ministership and where Abbott cover all sorts of things in those conversations. Bilateral relations a free trade agreement trans-pacific. Partnership. Even things like immigration and how to handle the US and how to handle. China. Now, that was a golden opportunity for. But as a site was what any of us would do presented with those those very same circumstance. Yeah. Putting comebacks are fascinating story. you think of Churchill Men's as Nixon Howard Netanyahu and of course, Dr Mahalia what kind of characteristics did obey display that made you think he could defy the odds and mount has spectacularly. Was a capacity introspection for for reflection and for pragmatist dressy learned from where he'd gone wrong and realize it was actually okay to change your mind about how you do things to show that sort of flexibility and you know he reflected long and hard after his failed attempt prime minister as to what had gone wrong. And I think he knew he realized he needed to get the economy right and didn't pay that much attention in two thousand, six, seven also realized I. think he needed to have the right people around him to get things done even if they weren't longstanding loyalists that's where it gone wrong in two thousand six too many loyalists and not enough competent people around him.

Roll Over Beethoven

"Hello I'm. Naomi. lewin welcome to classics for kids. For some reason, maybe because he was such a genius, Beethoven seemed to be the butt of jokes than any other composer. Not all the jokes have to do with music but some. Your parents and grandparents probably know the song roll over Beethoven. Chuck, Berry originally made it popular back in the nineteen fifties this version by electric light orchestra even quotes Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. That's not the only popular song to use Beethoven's fifth. A disco hit from the seventies is even named for a fifth of Beethoven. It's no joke than in World War Two. Beethoven's fifth took on a whole new meaning back. Then important messages were still sent by Telegraph using Morse Code and dictate the DOT is Morse code for the letter. V. After British Prime Minister Winston Churchill declared a campaign called V for victory. Of The BBC British public radio started playing the first four notes of Beethoven's fifth before all news bulletins. A. Beethoven. Never married but after he died someone found a very passionate letter, he had addressed to my immortal beloved. No one knows who the immortal beloved might have been but turns up in. Beethoven joke that takes the fifth. The joke goes that the immortal beloved was threatening to leave Beethoven because he didn't pay enough attention to her Beethoven said, that's ridiculous. You are everything to me. You're my life you're my inspiration and she looked at him and said me. Everything your life your inspiration ha ha. and. Then there's the joke about a man who's wandering through a cemetery in Europe and stumbles on Beethoven's grave. He's very surprised to see Beethoven sitting up in his coffin furiously erasing his music. So he asks excuse me Mr Beethoven what on Earth Are you doing and Beethoven snaps back can't you see? I'm decomposing.

"The victory ride kicks off the stakes action here at Belmont Park tomorrow afternoon grade three early in the caught has just the feel of five phillies. GOING TO GO Six and a half furlongs as for the three year old's warning line favors one francs. Rock Cat Hall of Famer Bill Will Give Fellow Hall of Famer John Velazquez a leg up and this phillies done very little wrong on her career. She's three for seven. With four second-place finishes ran second in a couple of graded stakes, including the grade one spin away up at Saratoga last year last seen winning a third level allowance optional claimer. She uses stakes. Winner took the any limit kick off three year old season three starts back. and. Probably the only reason that this race isn't later in the card is that it's a five Horsfield and Franks? Rakhat is three to five on the morning line, and she may be the the loan speed in race, so she's going to be tough to beat at three to five, but that's a pretty short price, considering there some pretty good up and coming phillies near now I think number four center. I'll I'm going to give her another shot for. For Chad Brown and Joel Rosario Sheila Great Getting Her Maiden Win Gulfstream Park, when bet down to three to five at the end of March then came back in a tough allowance race at Churchill downs where she was really over bet, she was three to five that day against another very impressive maiden winner of this one for Steve Asmussen in casual casual ran a great race that day center I'll had all sorts of problems. She didn't break that well. She had trouble during the race, and she was just really never in at any point. I think it's a racy can kind of draw a line through? If she runs closer to the way she did and her debut. I think she's the one that could give Franks rock cat. The biggest problem Franks rocket will probably get the lead I would think Rosario would have center I'll sitting justin behind her and seeing if they can outgun into the line going six and a half furlongs. With you I'm going to take a shot with center. Rile planner. If? When I plan! Early took five tomorrow I will use both Franks rocket and center, but I'll tell you what I think. You can make a case also for up in smoke was undefeated and sprints. She's four five and a career. Lone blemish came when George Weaver tries to stretch her out Hollywood wildcat. Go at Gulfstream Park. She's raced exclusively of Gulfstream, in fact, steady diet once. Once a month February march April may June now. She gets a race in July. Here over Big Sandy, she wanted the game face overboard last time out for weaver Rod Ortiz Junior. Who wrote her in her debut against fellow Florida breads down at Gulfstream Park's in the climb back aboard for the first time. Since that day looks, you'll need a little help up front if Franks, rockets able to set an easy pace I. She's going to be very very tough. I think Senator I'll be the first one to come calling. Those are the two up in smoke. If you're looking to three deep, I don't think you need to center for Bobby and I race number three goes as the great three six and a half for a long victory ride go to the end of the card. Eleven race card like I said earlier, and the final four races make up an all stakes pick four, and it starts in reasoning with the greed three poker. Flat Mile on the turf for many years. This was the fourth of July staple. On the naira calendar here it is now as part of a super five stakes card. In, the poker though. On the widener, so they come out of that shoot. On the clubhouse turn we get a field of eight entered for the turf as a main track. Only it's all relevant with the way. The weather's been here. I would imagine you know there's supposed to be some rain. We're recording the show Friday afternoon supposed to be some rains rather day on Friday and into the evening. I can't imagine it enough to take this off the turf, so let's say it will be a field of eight.

Jaws 45th Anniversary And Power Ranking Spielberg

"Welcome to film spotting. Josh, we've done our share of top five over the years five hundred or so, but when it comes to power rankings, we are mere novices. We did this for the first time two years ago. Almost to the day, we power ranked the Chris's Anna the. Moments history of film spot right episode six, Eighty six Oh, surely one of our more significant shows. And this week we're going to power rank the five decades of Steven Spielberg's career. Maybe someday will power rank our power rankings. Come to that. So little preview. Was this tougher than you thought you know? There's two ways to go about this I think initially we both thought just of look at the filmography, and and get on the mic and kind of riff where we think things are, or you sit down and chart things you move them around. You have tears. Which of course is what I think? We both ended up doing so yeah. It was a little bit more of a project than I anticipated, but a rewarding one. Yeah, I put in the work on it. Because I knew it was going to be hard enough deciding which decade put first. and which would slot right behind it? I didn't think it would be so hard with the other decades actually, and then after spending a good deal of time on it I actually ended up flipping two decades around that I thought were set in stone. So I'm excited to get to that, and we'll share listeners power rankings of the Spielberg decades as well we have. Their poll results a bit later I though the beaches are open, so let's talk ause. There is a creature alive today. WHO has survived millions of years of evolution? Without Change. Without Passion. And without logic. It lives to kill a mindless eating machine. It will attack. And Devour. Anything. It is as if God. Created the devil. Gaping. Jaws. Sometimes. Probably often we have a convenient hook for one of these setups that doesn't really reflect the whole substance of our conversation about a movie, but a convenient hook is a convenient hook, which is all to say for those of you who aren't particularly interested in hearing a discussion of jaws framed around our current administration. Just give us a little wiggle room. Here I'm pretty confident, were both more excited to talk about Steven Spielberg's camera tricks then his politics, but it's a little. Little Eerie how prescient his game changing nineteen seventy-five blockbuster is forty five years later. The movie The promise will never go in the water again also presents an all too dangerously familiar type of huckster politician, a crisis who fails to heed the warnings of scientists dramatically downplays and dismisses the potential loss of life can't wait to pat himself, and his cronies on the back loves to PREEN FOR A TV camera and who demands those beaches be open because business demands. They be open. Sorry even the scary shark movie is actually about Corona. Virus and I'm far from the only one who noticed my twitter timeline has jumped the snark over the past couple of months including this from frank rich just a few nights ago. Commenting on a New York Times breaking news tweet read Vice President Mike Pence encourage governors to repeat a misleading claim about corona virus outbreaks rich wrote. Pence makes the jaws mayor look like Churchill. Mayor. Von is played with a pen. See an affable smugness by Murray Hamilton and one line I'd always kind of overlooked. This struck me on. This rewatch is when he's spurning. The please of Roy Scheider is chief Martin Brody and Richard Dreyfuss is Matt. Hooper to keep the beaches closed on July Fourth America's Day, to celebrate its independence and preeminence. Any explains I. Don't think either one of you are familiar with our problems.

But it's also of course experiencing a far-right resurgence and I think they've taken a bit anoc. Really the David you know this, there's still kind of a force. Do you think that being honest about history makes? A real difference to the far right, or does it only make a difference on the kind of level of the of the mainstream discos? Well, if you look at Germany I, think thought. It has made a real difference on this being Germany where we have a word for everything. There's actually a word for it. It's cold Dannon hikes off by some. Literally translated means working also post and you're absolutely right to point out that German. Society is not free of racism. You have that in the rive the alright. AFC! You see this sometimes in. Acts. But Culture and politics is. Deeply deeply informed by the history all of the arts. If you look at TV and film, they reference Nazi history. We have these kind of. Public I think one academic research who is public rights of repentance? The whole country comes together to think of days like clown or the liberation of out switch, and then, of course you have like the iconography everywhere in Germany. For example the Holocaust memorial memorial to like the Romance Sinti, who were ethnically cleansed anywhere you go in German cities particularly in Berlin you can't. Take two steps without coming across another reminder of the kind of brutal history and the dark cost of the Third Reich, and it's really interesting to me. As a half German person how there isn't equivalent in the UK year when it comes to. Is Very interested to learn from my British friends who went to school here that there isn't much of a perspective in school in terms of colonial history, but of course when it comes to the second world, war a lot of emphasis. On the same in the US there's hardly there isn't very much public knowledge on why the American civil war happened. What the history of slavery let alone kind of the genocide of the native. American so I i. do think there there are some strong lessons that can be learned from how Germany has learned. We, he? You know so. There's a lot of interesting stuff. Say about the the history of Churchill. He was a divisive figure for most of his career. He so famously lost the nineteen forty five election despite his war record you know there is a whole conversation that that kind of serious curious people can have a mountain, but the people defending him for imaginary vandals Is Sort of just ridiculous to even talk about the real history in that context, because is it? What do you think is the symbol? The symbolism of Churchill what is Churchill to them quite apart from what the actual man was. You have to remember here that Churchill is personally very important Boris Johnson. He's written a book about him. He likes to model himself on him. The whole narrative of Britain alone is one that Johnson has cultivated so I think Johnson is trying to impose his vision and his idealization of Churchill. In, some ways, and you've seen this. You've seen this particular with the plans to impose a ten year. Maximum sentence for anyone defacing a war memorial. It's completely disproportionate. I mean ten years is what you normally get for. Possessing a former a firearm with intent to use it. It's really serious stuff, and you can argue this both ways. It's it's. Pointing at earlier that the statue is public property, and so perhaps it's less serious if it were private property because. You can also argue that the other way and say public property. Therefore, it's more important that we privilege to the statue and take care of it. We remember it. It's what look what autocrats tend to do. They changed the law in ways that shore up that support and their prejudices. They create essentially new crimes in order to stamp their authority on the country that living in and I think that is one Johnson Underdo here and label made supportive noises about this new law. We've so far generally synthetic. Dahmer's designed to avoid sort of obvious Tori traps. Neighbor it to be painted as. UNPATRIOTIC? Whatever but do you think this was a step too far that there was no need to rubberstamped idea? Yeah, it was. It was pointless. I can see. He doesn't want to give any ammunition to his enemies, but he's a lawyer. He ought to know. Frankly Hilton are better than that and he ought to know. How was kind of crime a tenure maximum sentence tracks? Yeah, it was a little bit of his a little bit of Immigration Mug moment for him there though. I'm Alex finally is this. A sign of things to come that whenever things get of sticky and they're actually really huge. Substantive issues on which the government is failing also be doesn't have any answers I'm just gonNA far up the Brexit pace with some some nonsense controversy. Maybe. I guess. I guess they will do that as as long as it keeps working as long as it keeps getting rewarded. The it's a for Jenkins. Heights ow by Deng did I. Say that right near. There were working. The past record basically says as as long as it keeps working for them. They'll keep going there. Which is why I think actually the US November. Elections are going to be a really important moment in that. Because that's what trump has tried to do. Throughout his tenure, he's basically completely ignored the floating voters and the Democrats and simply tried to fire up his base if that works for him in November then. Johnson's strategy of doing that will learn to get was if it doesn't work. We May. We may see a quite a big change. Next one of the many things that's more important than statutes Boris Johnson so named with the idea of recruiting twenty thousand.

"To be effigies of long dead white people in the. Matter has not made that a priority in the slightest. Is this being worked on by by the government and the media as a distraction from more serious issues, yeah, I, think it is It was quite strange. I noticed that Some activists were protecting aced out to off. George Eliot in eighteen the other day, which was quite surprising, but maybe they told she was Queen Victoria. It is a long. Tracked from serious issues are it's an attempt to focus on things that are easy to understand and away from things that are hard to understand and can be harder to M. episode mortifies with. And in that sense, unfortunately, it's been successful because the headlines we've seen often especially in the express on the male been about the attacks or threat to statues. There's no actually happened I I should I should say I mean Churchill still seems ready to be on box, but the has been on the statues, because it's an easy concept to understand a statue being attacked in a way that. Systemic discrimination is a really difficult. One to understand into, appreciate when you're not victim of where. I'll, it's conservatives. criticize the words thugs on both weekends saying that it doesn't matter what the causative used violence I certainly saw this sort of a bit of a sort of sensible centrist troy on twitter.

Its goal is violence so. How. It's advocates. Behave in public is neither here, nor there that's why far-right groups are. Prohibited by no. There is an important point here which I think has has not been raised enough any. It's about the nature of bringing down a public statue because it's easy to call it vandalism and equated to someone you know breaking your windows Zoa setting a car on fire, but this is actually an act against a bit of public property, so it's it's effectively a group of people who co owns something bringing down, and that that gives it for me a very different flavor to setting a car on fire, which is a crime against. Property because it makes it apprenticed against the state. The target is you know the state and what you were saying to rose just before. I think this I thought the same thing about the statute of Bayden Powell, the creator of the Scout Movement which was. In the news or of last week and was fiscally protected. and. I couldn't find anyone that was calling for it to actually be destroyed thrown in the. See I think what happened. Was the council got? A a sort of list of things that might be in danger, and they made the judgment that, because this particular statue was very delicate, because it has a sort of wide-rimmed at, and he's holding, think a staff of some sort, and it was right next to the that this particular statue was in danger, and then the resident sort of took it from there and started this twenty four hour vigil to protect the statue. That didn't seem to be under any sort of threat. was entirely confected. were, black lives matter wise not to hold a protest last week. Handle these large one and sort of the racists be seen to clash with the police rather than with counterprotest is. Very, it was a it was a PR mouse the strike to be honest. They they simply let them get on with it. And I think those were the words of one of the organizers actually Let's just let them get on with. It protests what they want to protest. Do what they WANNA do. And they certainly showed their their true face. I'm an Anata those are clashes jets. Philip said look out your window. Britain isn't like that. Too off from you so seeing those scenes. Do you think we sort of overstate the importance of these sort of gambling season sunglasses? All could they become a big threat? Do you feel the kind of you know? The the wind is behind these people or do they seem like a very small angry minority. I think both can be true. I think they can be just a very visible angry minority, but that doesn't mean that you know. Because just village looks out. Her window doesn't see any. Then part of Britain. I can look. I can look out my window and berms. -I most days and see nothing going on and I can look at my window. Maybe after a much in the nearby stadium. Down to the two shops past the pub and suddenly see a very different Britain. So you know there isn't just one Britain and it doesn't reside exclusively. Outside your window all the time. Nina? We were told many times that it breaks. It didn't happen. The far-right weeds would take to the streets and that was kind of an incentive. To get it done, but but here they are anyway This proved that actually that. When you're making political decisions, you shouldn't really worry about what the far-right once and might do because it will find an excuse anyway. Yeah? I mean absolutely in the sense that the far-right should not be an imperative to guide your political decision making on the other hand. We should worry about them in the sense that. How is it that there is what I think actually is a very vocal. Minority people you know. How have they been allowed to become so radicalized and? They ideological, because these really are in my view, who you can't negotiate with the. Ideological you know they're almost terrorist. Light in their view of the world on a brighter note, I would say that I don't think they're indicative of half of the country. This vocal minority which we saw where the very visceral warnin of the worst British stereotypes, hooligans thugs, I think Alex was fought on when you just said just now that you know the best thing we could have done was just to let them get on with it because I think that the vast majority of the British public would have seen not though scenes on the streets and not been. Not See those those kind of thugs soon as the backbone of person whether or not your laughter on, you're on the right I. think that they are white extreme and I don't think most countries behind.

Winston Churchill statue sealed in steel ahead of protests

"Let's go to London now Frank where we've seen statues of some prominent figures from British history at the heart of the protest there yeah this is actually familiar I think to many Americans a slave trader who made me a lot of money in that business his statue was torn down in Bristol last weekend and then that's a city on the coast and then Churchill statue in parliament square was defaced where someone spray painted he was a racist what happened yesterday is a bunch of for white nationalists football hooligans and even some people who just generally offended by this these attacks on historical figures they surged into parliament square right you know in front of big band police have boxed up Churchill to sort of protect him and by the time with the mayor said and and even black lives matter's organizations you're said don't go to London for this this is going to end up with a lot of battles between white and black people but some anti racism protesters came anyway and so you had this protest and counter protest how did it play out yeah it was fascinating to watch the police penned in the far right of folks around the statues and they started throwing bottles and started punching police some of them clearly came here for a fight there were clashes between a white far right demonstrators and black anti racism protesters in Trafalgar Square I also ran across some black men who had face coverings and they were doing some hit run attacks on white protesters about the timing of the Waterloo station the train station there was some violence there and police actually had to seal it off in the end at least six people went to the hospital they were over a hundred arrests and see the other thing is this is all a bit surreal because we still supposed to be doing social distancing so you would have people wearing face masks punching each other so the whole thing was was restored yeah quite a scene up Frank did everyone come to London yesterday just looking for a fight no I mean a lot of people were peaceful and that one of the striking images was a black anti racist protester actually carrying one of the white protesters who'd been beaten and it was a sizeable center when I was talking to people who said you know if we're going to remove statues there needs to be a democratic discussion about this they can't just be torn down and a medical at Westminster bridge is names Andy Boyle he works in construction and he had come to monitor the protest he's white and this is what he said little available site dot this Congress and it's over by the strong rate on I will admit it still as racism today albeit it's getting better but it still isn't there yet I believe it should get there owner or French officials taking any action in response to what's going on the streets there yes they are well yesterday it ended rather chaotically because the police wouldn't let the protesters marched through the city that kept them pinned into the plaster at the break so we did see scenes of you know tear gas being fired but otherwise it was peaceful the government appears to be listening this week the interior minister Christophe Castaner he banned chokehold but the police have also come out they're angry they're say they're being stigmatized by a few bad apples and they have accused the interior minister of betraying them

"You know just fire and sure enough? They did and this had an amazingly hardening effect on the populace. It just thrilled them in cheered in one thousand nine hundred forty. The idea of a bombing campaign to terrorize and demoralized citizens was relatively new thing. I mean they'd been one case of a during the Spanish civil war. But this was something kind of new and lower and Hermann Goering head of the German Air Force. The lift Wafa continued to be astounded that the British public was taking this in and Churchill wasn't giving in and then they expanded the attacks beyond London to some other industrial cities like Coventry and Bristol. Tell us about what that was like. For the for those towns. Yeah the raid against Coventry in November of nineteen forty was particularly significant rate because the Mass at immense force of aircraft with the idea of obliterate the city of Coventry at an actually succeeded in that act so much so that afterwards both on the German side and the British side coverage was kind of the gold standard. If you will the bridge referred to Coventry dictation. A measure of the effectiveness of a raid was was at one coventry to Coventry's three Coventry's So that is a real jarring and amazingly amazingly from the German point of view during one of the most interesting because what happened in in in Bristol England this is nineteen forty one. Churchill was on his way to Bristol to award honorary degrees At as Donald chance to Bristol University and his whole entourage with various officials in his special train and were on their way to on the way to Bristol Pause on a siding outside the city happily because that night a tremendous rate struck the city of Bristol and as they arrived in town the next morning the city the city is a flame at that point but Churchill goals goes on and goes ahead with his plans to to award these. These degrees arrives Bristol. University buildings literally next door to the to the space in which they're holding. The degree ceremony building. Next door are on fire. People who people arrive in the audience who have clearly been up all night fighting fires digging bodies out of out of destroyed buildings so forth there in the audience up on the dice within our men who have their clothing is wet and Saudi and so forth. But they're still wearing their. They're still wearing their robes. And this this degree ceremonies still goes on afterwards. Churchill gives this wonderful extemporaneous speech just just about the courage of Ryssdal residents and it's it was really a very amazing very moving moment especially from merit. Who just just got love for Maria's his daughter Mary who just filled her her love for her father just become so much more amplified even in in that bumped. It is interesting because you know. Churchill was inspirational speaker on before parliament and on the Radio. But you also say that these visits to bombed out neighborhoods in London and cities throughout the British isles were also had an inspirational effect. Which is you know. It can be tricky for an elected leader to go to an era where people have lost their livelihoods and their loved ones and our utterly shattered in shellshocked and they seize this politician coming in with a Nice Car. In an entourage. It can rub people the wrong way. How did he manage to make it inspirational? This is something After that first raid on September seventh nineteen forty the next day. Churchill went to the very heavily vom. Dach district these men with an entourage and one member of General Hastings phys May Dictum hug because he looked like a pug is made recounts how when they arrived in the east and he is made was very concerned that there would be a a negative reaction to Churchill arriving. After after this this this horrible event that there might be a lot of recrimination. Like why what? Why were you not able to save us from from this for one reason or another That was not the case as they quickly found the public was if people there who had on their homes and so forth loved it that Churchill had arrived loved at that he was there now whether that had a lot to do with Churchill himself on. You know it's hard to say. It was a moment when when maybe it could have gone either way. But the fact is they embrace churchill and embrace them And one thing that endeared him to the public was the fact that he was not afraid to cry. He was deeply moved by this by this event. So and again. That's the this idea recognizing the power of symbolic acts. There's one moment you describe. It might have been touring Bristol where such a large crowd gathered that not. Everyone could see him. He hoists his bowler hat on his cane and lifts it high so that people can see that. He's yeah lifted high and swirls it around in the air so that people can see that that the leaders I should say also by the way that you know this he was not. It wasn't sort of a desire. Just near rebel in in the of his audience was not at all he was. He was deeply deeply moved by everything they saw was the case that at Bristol as he was after he had lived the speech and after he had made his way back to the train but this huge crowd of people for the city who had clustered around were following his car. Back to the train at it could have been as Mary Points Mary. Churchill daughter who diarrhea she points out it could have been a festival day in Bristol. They arrive at the train. Churchill words these waving to the crowd with the crowd way. He's waiting until the train is out of sight of obviously out of sight of anybody back in Bristol. And then he picks up. A newspaper halted in front of this. Hadn't behind the newspaper begins to cry. He's he's that moved by the situation. I believe it's a definite that he says he says something to the effect is a great responsibility Erik. Larsen's book is the splendid and the vile. We'll talk more after a short break. This is fresh air. Let's all close our eyes. Take a deep breath. Let it out and listen to. Npr's all songs considered it's a music podcast but it's also a good friend and guide to find joy in troubled times here. All songs considered with new episodes every Tuesday and Friday. Wherever you listen to podcasts. This is fresh air. And we're speaking with author. Eric Larsen. He has a new book about the leadership and family life of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill during his first year in office when Nazi Germany waged a bombing campaign that killed more than forty four thousand British civilians. The book is the splendid and the vile. I want to just turn to the subject of crisis leadership here since we're in a crisis right now and of course every national crisis is different and a viral pandemic is different from twentieth century warfare. Which is what you write about but as you reflect on the insights that this research may have given you. I'm wondering what has occurred to you. Observing President Trump's conduct in handling the challenges of the corona virus. Oh my well I I. I come back to these. The idea of how how to approach situation a situation like this or at least how. Churchill would've would've approached it. You know the the key thing is to embolden reassure and encourage. I feel Trump Odyssey has done none of this no particular no particular moment of actual erode of leadership have icing but Churchill again would have he would have been first of all very frank about what we're confronting it would have been very frank about what this pandemic really means and about the importance. Yes staying home. Churchill would have been very very sober in his appraisal of what was happening and again any would have come around with reasons for optimism. Things that that were actually happening. That could could maybe improve the situation. He meant he undoubtedly talked about how the vast medical research infrastructure of this country bending itself to solving this problem but he would have done something to really encourage the populace and make them feel like he was in control and things were eventually going to get better. You know I'm also struck. By how much time and effort Churchill spent studying policy really getting into the details of every aspect of not just the war but other national policy issues and how important it is for a for a leader to be empirically grounded consulting the experts that he knows and and obviously has to make his own calls but being immersed in in the actual issues. Well you know. I think the Churchill's would absolutely have a fine.

"Evacuated from the town of dunkirk. It was a dark time for the British forces. The United States was not in the war. They were prepared to take on Germany alone. At this point Churchill knew that he would have to defend against a German attack. Either from the air or possibly from the An. What role did he see for the Royal Air Force in the defense of the country and what was the state of the Air Force? Well what's very important to recognize to to to understand is that the fall of France was a a huge thing in terms of strategy. The idea the transplant fall had never been conceived have never been thought of as a possibility by pretty strict radishes now. Suddenly France had fallen. And and look the look. Wafa was able to set up basis on French coast minutes minutes from Britain previous strategy held at this. This was going to be impossible because the Germans have to fly away from Germany. Not Have the fuel capacity for their fighters that they didn't have the fuel capacity for their fighters couldn't send their bombers because they would be sitting ducks of the year. Churchill recognized very early on at that the fighters were going to be all important because because the only way Hitler could launch an invasion across the challenges would be could be done was if the lift. Wada I achieve air superiority so the top goal. Churchill was to deny air security to both the only way to do that. Let's do the production answered the to the effective coordination of fire so the German air war begins with a lot of tax during the daytime. In which the Royal Air Force the British Air Force fighters were pretty effective in knocking down a lot of the aircraft of the German Air Force. The left Wafa this also present. That kind of a show for British citizens actually watched a lot of this happen right in the sky. Oh this one of the fasting things to me. I mean there are. There are accounts of people who try to try to picture this. In one case there is a Switching is is A writer is is lying in the grass on a on a on a cliff at at Dover on a Beautiful Sunny Day the challenge sparkling below. Just could be any lovely summer day at high up above there is this pitched life or death battle between between German fighters British fighters and end the novelty of the seeing these seeing the spiralling contrails. High up in the sky watching occasionally as one of these things would just appear in a blur of smoke and playing with crashed into the sea was just such an anomalous. Think there you are extensive picnicking on a clifftop as she says no watching this battle at could determine the fate civilizations when the Germans went to night bombing. How did that change the equation? How did it affect the approaches of the German bombers the German fighters and and the British air defences first of all your switched to to tonight bombing because when they attacked by day with their bomber is The the Rif Spitfires hurricanes dairy affected knocking down bombers were quite slow relative to the speed of the of the of the fires in particular. The Germans were were startled to find. One of their aircraft. Is the so-called Stupa dive bomber with had been this fearsome weapon and land campaigns had pet proven to be uniquely vulnerable to attack by these Biden Song and very well trained in dynamic British British British pilots. So they'd had to give up daytime bombing and went to nighttime bombing. The affected this was that was first of all at night. They no longer need fighter protection because the the Rif is essentially effectively might want The Spitfires and hurricanes the pilots had had no way of effectively locating these bombers in darkness they had a rough idea because of course have established this this wonderful pression radar system but this was only only effective to apply because by the time the message has got to the control centers about where these planes were. The place obviously had moved onto different locations so that so digital sighting of aircraft was very important part of of how they are a gift dealt with bombers and and also with fighters at night with visual aspect was was removed so the bombers were now essentially free to fly over the British isles at will. This was very poor out another aspect. Was that because now. They were free to fly over over the because they no longer needed a fighter escorts fighters had very very short operational stamina essentially ninety minutes. Now the bombers could could could stay up for for far far longer so this very much changed the dynamic right and made the British industries in public more vulnerable. You note that Hitler for several months declined to bomb London because he was still hoping to convince. Churchill to see reason and negotiate a peace treaty Churchill was insisting he would take the fight to Germany he had his bombers bombed Berlin and that kind of change things. Didn't it one key element before the before? It became the the before Germany began. Its first deliberate bombing attacks on. London was was a mistake will flop of made on August Fourth Nineteen thirty when a group of German bombers thought they were over their target. They were not. They were over. Central London League dropped their bombs and this was the first attack on central London and yet was terrified to to citizens one which felt that for whatever reason they will not. This was not going. They're not going to be the subject of attack. Know by by this gave a Churchill what he described as the moral the moral right than to turn around and bomb Germany the Rif Bombed Berlin rather The was a little bit reluctant to do that as well because the moral consequences consult for so now. Suddenly you have this. This rapid escalation that leads to September seventh nineteen forty but I liberal mass intense bombing of the city of London. Talk about these raids on London in some detail. How big were they? How many planes would be involved? What kind of bombs were dropped? Hundreds of planes were involved You know when I was singing. Yeah yeah absolutely single rate mean up to a thousand planes bombers dispatched from bases along the along. The French coast not all necessarily arriving at the same time. But these were these were tremendous tremendous rates. And when I was doing the research for this book at by would stay up for part of the time in London and I remember standing before Mike Hotel Window. Just looking out at dusk one night trying to imagine what this would have been lied so beautiful. Blue night at dusk you suddenly you see these hundreds of bombers coming over the horizon. How terrified that must've but so so the first rule begins. September seven forty the The bombers arrive at At as I as I pointed out at teatime This was a day when otherwise London is one about their business In a in a very moral waves it was hot day for London. Just rare hot and sunny Not Temperatures up About Ninety degrees The stores and piccadilly were packed. People were just living their lives and suddenly suddenly the IT Simon so now this by itself. Blu Not was not was not a particularly terrifying thing because air rates varied sirens. Were sounding the time my time but on a regular basis but now the allows began to south says in the afternoons ten seventeen forty and you know the first thing nation was to say okay. These must be just another false alarm this time. However incendiary bombs began to fall these. These are typically the first things that the left the drop these meant to set fire to structures so that once the once the structures began to earn and as night fell. These structures would serve as we for bombers to fall. Because you navigation at night was still a problem for for the for the German bombers they could they could fly at night readily but the getting to a target at least initial phases blitz required. Either either Moonlights Which is very important thing. Flown was referred to as the bomber's moon or What else are helpless to have these these these structures on fire because they they guided the bombers to to the target so suddenly isn't standards that are flying next come to high explosive bombs and the Germans deployed a variety of of of of weapons from from smallish high explosive bombs to to To two giant about four thousand pound bombs the Germans nickname Satan These bombs began to fall in the city of London. September seventh nineteen forty and now for limiter some life as they would write one of the little details. Is that you know. We hear the whistling sound that bombs would make as they fall. That's not a normal thing for the moms that was added to make them more terrifying right. Yeah what Germans and then eventually also British What's referred to as the sort of Jericho Trumpet Let device attached to attached to bombs to make them howl as they fell which was believed to amplify the terror effect. Similar thing was done by the way to the stick of mammary some to make them scream as they as they enter their dives which is believed to enhance the terror of on the ground right. And you mentioned this when people saw moon coming that was even more terrifying right. Yes I mean. The full moon was That nights when there was a full moon these were these were deemed to be the nights when air rates were most likely to occur because because moonlight was very effective in lighting targets. Along On nights when there was a full moon so-called bombers moved That's when people most feared what would happen. And we're pretty much assured that there would be a Ray Eric. Larssen's new book is the splendid and the vile after a break we'll hear more about Winston Churchill's leadership of Great Britain during the German bombing campaign in nineteen forty and some of the ways he inspired citizens and sustained their morale before the United States entered the war.

In view the sentences imposed Dafa weighing these factors fell within the reasonable exercise of the judge's discretion to a royal commission was held into the Black Saturday fires which aimed to examine all aspects of the government's bushfire strategy.

"Mine and it was here that Churchill heard the words that would foreshadow all that was to come at the mouth of the coal mine was another man named Mr Do snap who was from Oldham. Which in an extremely wild coincidence happens to be the same exact town were Churchill had. I stood for election to parliament and lost which Mr do snap apparently remembered for as Mr do snap shook Churchill's hand at the mouth of the coal mine. He said to churchill quote. They'll all vote for you. Next time and quote prophetic words to say the least. But from there Mr Howard's plan for Churchill's escape was put into motion. Churchill was led into the cage of the coal mine and from there and Churchill's own words quote down we shot into the bowels of the earth and so the cage descended two hundred feet down into a pitch black labyrinth of mine. Shafts and two additional Scottish miners were at the bottom of the mine waiting for Churchill Churchill exited the cage and he followed the to minors and they wound their way through this maze guided only by the lanterns that they were carrying Churchill followed closely behind. Churchill's own words again quote. We walked for some time through the pitchy. Labyrinth with frequent turns twists and alterations of level and finally stopped in sort of chamber where the air was cool and fresh and quote the to minors then laid out a makeshift bed for Churchill and gave him candles first and then a box of cigars and a bottle of whisky how well they appear to know Churchill already they then left him there with the warning to not move from this space no matter what happens and then the two men disappeared back into the darkness and Churchill was then alone again. He wrote later of this moment. Quote in this comfortable mood and speeded by intense fatigue. I soon slept the sleep of the weary but of the triumphant and quote Churchill would spend three days down in the mine hiding from the bore search parties that were combing the area looking for him and these three days down in the mine. Were not altogether that pleasant as you might imagine. He was alone for pretty much all of that time. With the exception of a few visits from Howard and the other men who brought him down more food and provisions but the darkness of the mind started to wear on him and soon enough as we said earlier he would learn that while there were no other people down in the shaft with him there were in fact countless rats to keep him company. How he didn't go crazy during those three days. I'll never know but if I had to take a guess. It must've had something to do with that bottle of whisky that he was given finally after three days down in the mine. Mr Howard thought it was safe enough to bring Churchill back up to the surface and hide him in a small secret room that was behind some packing cases inside his own office and so church was once again instructed not to come out of the room unless he heard the secret knock that they both agreed. Upon for a few more days. Churchill sat locked away in this small room reading a copy. A Robert Louis. Stevenson's book kidnapped and it's worth mentioning here that one of those days. While he was hiding in the secret room he heard a series of gunshots outside the House and he immediately thought that the boers had in fact now found him and that it was all over and he was being recaptured. But John Howard being the great guy that he was anticipating the anxiety that church would have been feeling after hearing the gunshots. He soon came up to ease his fear telling him that. It wasn't fact a bore military officer that had come but that they weren't looking for. Churchill any longer and this was because they said that they had caught Churchill the day before in another town which obviously was untrue given the fact Churchill himself was hearing this news regardless though to get the man to leave the Property Howard challenged him to a rifle shooting contest which he lost to the man and he paid the guy two pounds and then the man took off and after hearing this of course Churchill felt much better but then Howard said something else that made Churchill anxious once again Howard said as he left the small room quote. It's all fixed up for tonight and quote meaning that the time for hiding out was now over and the time for escape had now come. Churchill responded with quote what do I do Howard replied quote? Nothing you simply follow me when I come for you. And so here was the next phase of the plan in a nutshell. John Howard knew a man named Charles Burnham who was a Dutch shopkeeper who live nearby and it's worth noting here that Churchill refers to burn them in his recollection of the events as Bergner. Now I'm not certain if he was simply disguising the man's name in his book or simply got it wrong. But this shopkeeper Burnham sympathized with the British and John Howard knew this so Howard approached Burnham about helping Churchill Escape and Burnham agreed to help Burnham then mentioned that he was scheduled to ship a large order of wool by train to delegate obey the exact point that church was trying to get to and this shipment was scheduled to leave on December nineteenth. So if they wanted to try it they hype. Churchill in the middle of this will shipment and smuggled Churchill into Portuguese East Africa that way. And here's how Churchill himself captures how he would be smuggled out in the bales of wool quote. The bales could be so packed as to leave a small place in the center of the truck in which I could be concealed and quote and truck here means train car and this would be easily accomplished as well given the fact that the mind itself was connected with the main railway by a small branch line and all of Burnham's bales of wool would be loaded onto the train right next to the mine and this was no small order of Wolf. Either as Churchill describes the amount of well being shipped would quote fill two or three large trucks and quote and so now that the plan was in place and everything was secured the reality of this next phase of his escape landed upon Churchill. Pretty heavily he wrote of the state of his mind at point and the idea of losing his freedom and it's a lengthy quote but an important one as it really does give us a sense of what Churchill was thinking. Here he wrote quote. I was more worried about this than almost anything that happened to me so far in my adventure when by extraordinary chance one has gained some great advantage or prize and actually had it in one's own possession and been enjoying it for several days. The idea of losing it becomes almost unsupportable. I had really come to count upon freedom as a certainty and the idea of having to put myself in a position which I should be perfectly helpless without a move of any kind absolutely at the caprice of Searching Party at the frontier was profoundly harassing rather than face this ordeal. I would've much preferred to start off on the velde with a pony and a guide and far from the haunts of man to make my way march by March beyond the wide territories of the Boer Republic. However in the end. I accepted this proposal of my generous rescuer and arrangements were made accordingly end quote and with the plan in place and with Churchill committed to it he now had to just sit and wait for the moment of truth then at two. Am in the darkness of the early morning. Hours of December nineteenth. The door to the secret room were. Churchill was still hiding opened and there in the doorway once again stood John Howard.

"Now back to the show. We'll talk about Lord beaverbrook. There's another character. What was his role during this first year? A beaver books role. During this this first year was really very important now beaverbrook and Churchill had been friends off and on throughout the years but mostly friends and now at this point we're friends again and as soon as Churchill becomes prime minister on the ten thousand forty fifth he makes beaverbrook is minister of aircraft production. Very important job you ever is is at this point. He's a he's a newspaper magazine. He publishes newspapers. He has really know much about manufacturing hard things but church recognizes him with kind of galvanizing energy. That's going to be necessary to to step up. Production of fighter aircraft which Churchill rightly recognized from the GECKO was going to be crucial ingredient in trying to hold off any effort to invade England by Hitler and that that threat of invasion at this time was a very concrete thing. There were concerns that Hitler the German Air Force and army could invade the next step. On any given day that one day you'd be sitting there and Hyde Park and one hundred paratroopers would descend around the Serpentine in the park. A very real possibility but churchill recognize that the way to stop that the way to deny the off air superiority which is what they would have needed if they were going to try to invade. If the jurors were to try to invade England he recognized that fighters were the only way to do that did not have enough fighters while points beaverbook minister of aircraft. Production beaverbrook works. What a mouse to sort of an act of magic overtime radically steps up. Production of Spitfires and hurricanes not as radically as he would like to thank but he radically stepped up production and really sort of. Save the day at the same time. He was an irascible Attackers cataclysmic Lee energetic guy demanding peevish toddler ish in the course of nineteen forty. Forty one he resigns. Fourteen Times may lead to get attention from Churchill Churchill. Churchill knew him he knew his his man he knew that that that MACs at maximus Israel Lord beaverbrook styled Lord beaverbrook Max. Aken was his real name. He knew that Max was GonNa be a problem. He knew he was going to be a problem. But that's what he wanted. He wanted him to be problem. He wanted him to so conflict because he wanted aircraft production juiced up as much as possible and he gossiped like a church. Lady He wa. He's a gossip like he loved the gossip about what was going on. He loves the dog loved. Is I s? I talked about in the book. He loved to Collect Secrets Secrets. He loved to collect. Other people see she liked knowing the things that were in people's closets and then manipulating those people if if he could he was a real a real talent in that respect and that that didn't hurt either in terms of hurt some people. But it didn't hurt in terms of getting things done well This happened like Pamela Randolph. Eventually went to beaverbrook for the debt problem that she was having well. Yeah Yeah and that was. When when Pamela realize that the debts that she thought had been paid off by by Churchill? But that there was actually like. We're we're actually not fully paid off because there were other deaths in the pipeline which is horrifying to her. She went to Beaver Book and told him the story and wanted to get help with with the debt and in the process of put herself into the the sway of his of his world at a very interesting way and in the end you know he he did help her. But you know sort of the devil's bargain Rave Randolph. You've been told her don't ever told before it dealt ever let yourself get under under under beer books control. Get some context to some of the things that that surprised me whenever I think whenever I imagined people from a long time ago. I always imagined that like in their thirties or forties. Pamela was only twenty one when this when this was going on so I couldn't imagine being twenty one years old new baby and you've got hundreds I mean what today would amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt right Ri- ranch. Yeah and and and she was she. She seemed much older than her years is twenty one but she was. She was very flirtatious. Very easy way with people and sexually knowing person very much sort of I would say coveted bye. Bye Bye man and knew what she had was very willing to to use that to help her helper get away just use a very dynamic character and when their marriage began to fail which it did quite spectacularly and once she recognized that she was on her own she she really took very conservative steps to just car carve her own way in one of the way she did that. One of the people that entered into the Churchill secret circle was an American heron. Yes averell Harriman was his story. What was his role there? So Apple Ham was was a businessman from America. He was actually the founder of Sun Valley Resort Idaho to found that to try to get increase rail travel for his his family railroad in the wintertime. Harriman was an immensely attractive man. Tall very handsome very athletic. He was sent by Roosevelt President. Roosevelt Franklin D Roosevelt to London to administer the so-called lend lease program after it had finally been passed which was slow long saga in itself nominally. His mission was to was to to determine who got what age and how it got what was done with it and so forth but really he was. He was sent by Roosevelt to kind of report on what was really happening with. Churchill with the war and to send back reports about what was really really happening but turns out that yes he had that mission but then Churchill recognize that he was Roosevelt's Emma. Sorry he said about really bringing him into his inner circle almost like the courtship of of a woman brought him into his who was innermost circle to try to. You know to try to to by Proxy Win Roosevelt's intervention ultimately in the war. I'm he helped that. Roosevelt would intervene and of course Pearl. Harbor comes along that he does but Herman also was a again. He was of a very very attractive guy. At one party. He meets Pamela Churchill who at this point is convinced that occurred as decide? Her marriage is done and they during during an era they could add to his his apartment which is deemed to be safer. It's in this hotel called the Dorchester and one thing leads to another and dot dot and did Churchill. Churchill's know about it. Yeah I believe the Churchill's did know about it not immediately. But they did know about it. I don't think anybody really seriously doubts that they did but they didn't make a big thing about the affair. When later later Randolph got really annoyed when he found out about the affair that that his parents had been wittingly supporting a called in the in the Cacao cuckolding him in the in the in the Churchill family so did he was DVD to Randolph accused. Churchill used Pamela as a as a political connection or I'm sure he did once he realized that I mean he was. He was very very good at this. Courtship of America is like a fly fisherman using every single technique. You could just sort of real rosewood. Closer closer closer when he found out I I have no doubt that he found out that. Pamela and Hermann. We're having an affair. I sure he was delighted. This is like all in the family you know especially now well I think Churchill was used to that sort of thing I mean his mother was. How would you say she got? I mean she was. She did that would take. She was unfaithful. She was known as a cortisone basically. Yeah well basically in this town. Everybody was faithful. And that's one of the things that comes to my in my work actually almost doesn't matter what era. I'm looking at As Lot more sexually on that you would ever imagine and so the sort of the happy ending with that. If you call it HAP- it's kind of happy with Pamela Harriman. They've eventually they. They go their separate ways. They stayed married to their respective spouses. But then while she eventually divorces divorce but decades later ended up getting married. Well that's true. That's very sort of kind of a romantic story. Also in the sense of heroin did stay with his wife despite the revelation of this affair and they actually grew closer and closer over the years and when his wife died decades after after the war Aharon was was absolute crushed at one point though he is invited to a party at Katharine Graham's House. The you know the the owner of the Washington Post reconnect with Pamela. And the next thing you know. They're they're married this. This long saga has come full circle in their their therapy husband and wife. So you mentioned a Mary Mary. Churchill was your favorite character. Why was she your favorite character? Mary was my favorite character because well first of all she's brand new in terms of Churchill. Scholarship I I went. I was granted thankfully permission to look at her diet by her daughter. I was one of two scholars who had been given that opportunity. I don't know who the other scholar was but Mary has not been heavily written about in any work on church until until now and what I really liked about her. Was that you know. She was again context. She was this very charming smart. Pretty very intelligence seventeen year old. Who WHOSE LIFE FOLLOW? Very interesting arc. In this time she was. She was a very compelling counterpoint. To what was going on in the world like she she loved her father and she commented on on the Action Day by day in her own daily in his daily diary and it was really a really a a wonderful insight. Not just into what was actually happening on the broader world stage but also what was happening in her life. The context snogging in the Hayloft. What the F. Pilots. You know that kind of thing and the pilots at a nearby base bomber pilots these young guys in their twenties. Nineteen twenty twenty one twenty two. They knew Mary was at Chequers. The prime minister less state in the country outside London they knew Mary was there. They knew her friends were there and they would engage in a process that she refers to repeatedly at her diary as beating up which is when the bombers would fly over at treetop level. And just buzz the girls. They were thrilled. They love this and as you read her. Diaries life went on for her to she was jeopar- posed to and she had. You'd see the agony of whether to accept or not and the tension between her and her mother about whether to accept or not so I mean she she she follows a very a very interesting arc through welcome in. I don't want to give away exactly what happened but suffice it to say that you know one reason. I this book This book takes place in that first year of his prime minister. Ministership Premiership may ten ninety four to make ten nineteen forty one but it was not that year per se drew. This is not a book about the first year of the prime minister. This is a book that I did because the action happens to match conveniently that first year on May tenth nineteen forty one three different narrative threads all converge and end on that day which almost never happens in the world historical writing and one. Those was her particular Saga Right. What I what? I find interesting about Mary when I read about her. Seems like out of all the Churchill Children? She was the most well adjusted. She didn't have like the personal drama like Randolph Raven. Her older older sister as well. Yes yes she had two sisters Diana and Sarah. What do you think went on there? Like why did other? Churchill's children kind of end up. Have all these personal problems in Mary? Didn't I don't know I didn't spend a Lotta time?

I mean as she was the youngest and and was doted upon by her parents. Maybe that's part of it. A sea mentioned checkers. That was the the prime minister state out in the country outside of London and that seemed to play a pivotal role that's where Churchill would convene his inner circle. And not only I mean. They continue to work there but they also lost him.

Co put him on the waiting list hope to see you in January and now back to the show was churchill a religious man like did he have that a sort of a bedrock for because he seems so steadfast was religion and that that sort of bedrock forum was it something else he It wasn't really rich no he was he believed in an Almighty but when you look logically I'd say three sold you to you might he seems to have been to look after Winston. Churchill Churchill had many many brushes with death in his life. I have many accidents where he died and he believed in what he called invisible wings that were beating heaven and protecting him but he was also okay conventionally religious man in any way in fact he described his relationship to the Church of England being like the flying buttress in that he supported the judge but from the outside some of described Churchill as sort of spiritual but not religious in the sense says you said he didn't go to church but he still had a real capacity a pass for wonder and a sense of the transcendent he believed in absolute good and evil in the heroic clash between those forces had a firm moral code bedrock of principles like like honor loyalty and courage and he he would take time to contemplate supplies fireplace with chart will reflecting he also seemed to have a different kind of faith as well sort of faith in the British Empire. Yes he had a secular faith in the in the gym pop in a sense of also the sort of weakish progression in history. He believed that people were were moving. Would I'm not sure he felt that way. After outfits in the death camps revealed. I'm not sure that he he had this sense. That mankind was getting better very much off the off the bat but nonetheless is life. He tended to leave in a in the general sense of of human progress so churchill. After the Boer war he got elected to parliament had a political career and then he was put in place as the first Lord of the Ad Morality but he made some blunders there he talks about what those blunders weren't. How'd affected his political career. Yes well as food. I would be admiralty. He was in charge of the Royal Navy and he came up with this this idea in many ways a genius concept which was to get the royal all navy through the Straits between Europe and Asia and more it off concerns Naple Mondays Thembu and basically knock doc Turkey not be of them out of the central powers which would have been a brilliant scheme if it'll come off one of the great coups of the of rubber one but unfortunately as a result of some mine laying the night before the the attack we lost six ships in the allies all six ships on the day of the Nineteen fifteen and it was catastrophic and instead of cooling hoping off judgment fisted on on a land offensive on the European side on the Gallipoli an era which ultimately led to the killing a winding of nephew of the nine hundred forty seven seven thousand allied troops and what happened to his career after that after that happened when he was full resign was the was the first thing happened to it in November nineteen fifteen. They're often even when he was brought back into the government again nature in the first world war every time he gave a speech public meeting taking someone would shout out what about the doll house and this would carry on for another fifteen longer. years of this graph was this the time that was known as Churchill's chills wilderness years there. The woman is actually in nineteen thirty when he resigned from the shadow cabinet and they confessed if shadow cabinet and then spent can years warning against Hitler Nazis but prior to that he had a long period in government when he was home of the Exchequer uh-huh and Ministry of the colonies and various other important pastes like that up to a conservative defeat in the nineteen twenty nine general election. Ooh Well. How do those mistakes he made that happened in world war one the Dardanelles how did that set him up for success during World War to learn from that experience it learn in. Yes no exact he made terrible mistakes in his life. You know they want from moments. Think anybody to think that that's not a deeply flawed individual. He certainly roles and he made a series in state. He made a mistake as the exchequer in going onto the gold standard at the wrong time at the wrong price in nineteen twenty five. If he goes women suffrage grown he got the application wrong. He got the dog analysis. I mentioned earlier very happy Rome. You know this is not a man who got everything racing career by any means however he was a politician who learned from his mistakes and to pick up the one that you mentioned the daughter now he never once overruled overruled the British chiefs of Staff during the Second World War so even constitutionally he could as minister of defense he actually never once picked up and that was they great message that he he took great lesson that he learned from that catastrophe so we mentioned the Churchill was one of the few people who saw the dangers offers of Nazism when it started coming to rise in his his appreciation for history is knowledge of history allowed him to do that. But what did you have any personal experience where he became gymnast unshakable belief that Hitler had ambitions to conquer Europe. Yes Churchill as well as being historian and eating Nazism message as an historical a threat in terms of the past Churchill say was a fi night. He likes Jeez. He got on with these personally grown up with them. His father had like Jews he the represented Jewish constituency is up Zionist support of the Balfour Declaration and so of course he has an early warning system for the evils of Ah the Nazis and far earlier on the lot of the other people sitting on the benches within viz agent in class background background in Britain at that time many Morandi ethic and so that was another of the ways that is sort of personal beliefs and background allowed him to be the first major which exploded addition to warn against what was happening and he was also one of the few leaders who actually read Hitler's Mein Kampf and he tried to. Ah Tell people okay look. He says right here in the book what he plans on doing then another you mentioned too was when he was working in India like he saw jihadis like he saw extremists. Yes we're not just India also of course the Sudanese campaign where he was fighting against the forces of the Califa- owner of the library of the kind of came down to the Islamic fundamentalist fascism and so you had in the sense that he both in in India and Africa came up very impersonal to the fanaticism in this case religious richest. Max isn't of course but if Nazism but he was too spoke again thirty years later in the Nazis so one thing that that happened throughout rituals shows life is that he always got pushback. He was always getting criticized. He was described as a pusher. Something you didn't do right you. Didn't you weren't supposed to be publicly ambitious. Che's right and then but also he got criticized for all the things he did but it didn't seem to faze them all that much. What was it about Churchill's Joel's character or past experience in life that allowed them just to be so stoic in the face of so much criticism thrown at them. When I go to ethically correct UH response that really which is the announced tremendously bad the I have a sense of entitlement in public life today but he was tremendously mendaciously entitled he was the son well the grandson of Duke he been born in a palace at the very apex of Victorian Society and which he considered to be the greatest society up until that point to mystery of the world so he really didn't get much what other people thought that which of course is not a whiz very good in democratic politics but boy did he need that in the decade of the Wilderness Years Nineteen Thirties when he was shot shot down in the House of Commons decried nitty nitty how to see taken away from him by conservatives. He's attacked in the press constantly. He had a thick skin importantly down to his extremely in sort of grand backgrounds the amount him not to care what other people thought them. There's a picture in the book him when he was seven and he looks like like an Aristocrat even at seven years that he's he's he's got his hand on his hip and and his dad pointed up and he's he's seven years old and he will be a himself so yeah. He didn't have that middle class. Status Anxiety diety wasn't worried about his place he just he knew what his place was and he just just kept on that. Yes there wasn't a it wasn't a middle class audie body and he knew it but he's like he was an Aristocrat but he wasn't a SNOB. No He he didn't have any snow business that I was able to spot else in four years of of reading papers and his letters and and all that he actually with me look at his friends who away two of them initially would UK's excuse the next seven or eight of his place. His friends were never middle-class came from from very humble backgrounds some of them and he treated absolutely precisely the same as the people who were boom to the purple so in an important person in Churchill's life was his wife Clementine. What role did his his wife played in his career throughout his life. She was very important..

"He he practises living. Yes. Got it. Now, we come to that question of judgment again. I've mentioned this to you before I was told a story. But a man who's now died, but he lived deep into his night is and I was told the story when he was in his nineties man called George l z who is in the map room of the White House. He was a Lieutenant he was just there for cables to arrive and so forth to keep FDR informed. This is during Churchill's first or second visit to the White House. There's a an at eleven o'clock at night, the doors open and the president FDR wheeled in and Churchill comes in and George Marshall chief of the army chief of staff of the army and states army and a couple of British generals, and they start fighting back and forth. Referring to the maps on the table over the Churchill's insistence on a soft underbelly approach, you'll tell us in a moment what that meant. And as this man remembered, it all these years later, what was striking to him first of all FDR sat on the side smoking cigarettes and listening. It was Churchill and George Marshall the prime minister Britain and the top. Professional American soldier and Churchill kept emphasizing the aggressive opportunities if we do this. We can get them here. We can cut them off here. We can and Marshall kept emphasizing the logistical realities supply lines will be too long. No ports for resupply. Shipping lanes to exposed. And. Almost sure that Albert weta Meyer who was a pledge chief of the planning staff was in the room that evening as well. In any of it. What am I r- to his dying day insisted the church wasted hundreds of hours of time of the American general staff, forcing them to contend with his bad judgment with all this Whitman was an aggravated and he was in many ways, a great. Snow, but he just didn't like the British in. He always thought that we would trying to attack in the Mediterranean. It was to save our empire rather than rather than the Germans which is role. But nonetheless, this I think you're referring to June nineteen forty two that's the one that makes sense. Because most most of it was in the White House and George Marshall played an extremely important part of it. And yes, we'll what you have that in a microcosm in in. Mr Elles is recollections is precisely what you need it really the politician who was driving forward and had big ideas and big hopes and dreams and the chief of staff of the US army fully backed up in this case say by field marshal nude Allen, Brooke who was the chief of the imperial general stuff in Britain and the chamber of the British chiefs of staff, and they held him back and put the sensible questions about says he say logistics zone. But what you need it. Was the creative tension between these two political masters him and FDR and and military commanders to create from the creative tension a strategy, which was the war winning one where we captured a quarter of a million axes troops in North Africa. Then went over into Sicily and mainland Italy. And the day off to Rome fell we cross the channel and deliver that great punching blown d day and two eight to be able to come together to get that great strategy you needed a lot of arguments. And boy did they did they debate. It's you know, of course, they didn't. And what looks at least to some extent what looks like bad judgment on Churchill's part bad tactical? Judgment is pushing the general company pushing the generals, and sometimes he came up with ideas solely in order. Yes. It did take hours to knock them all down with him. I was rights as far as that was concerned. But if they weren't all being ten. Tested, constantly about the offensive. How important the offensive woes then church feared that they wouldn't take the offensive. And so did require this constant bellicosity from him to ensure that that everybody was on the same page when it came to hitting the Hondas disposable as he put one other question that his judgment. And this this case moral judgment. I feeling that. This is something that's questions that's been raised in the last decade or fifteen years. Maybe for the first time Dresden, February fifth nineteen Forty-five British attack on the George capital of Saxony Dresden..

"The prime minister the person's says, and yet people knew that that was an aspect of Churchill and so he was not about to make peace with Hitler. Instead, he outmaneuvered Lord Halifax all the way through those five one of the things so striking about Churchill is he's working constantly the memoranda. Visit one of the things that you, quote, he has detailed knowledge of the military situation at every single moment and one of the things that so the I enables them to bring the country with him is that he's reporting on the military situation in the house. All right. And yet for all that he's not calculating in the end. No, he's driven as I say by his emotions. But of course, he is when it comes to the defense committee of the war cabinets when he talks to them to the generals in particular and the stove he does get into the granular. Detail of where every battalion is. But when it comes to the politics when people want to make peace with Hitler. However by the situation gold, he managed to to retain wonderful sense of humor. He's constantly making jokes throughout may, and June nineteen forty I think that comes from his sense of destiny, which of course, I refer to in the subtitle his own personal sense of destiny, which is an incredibly powerful aspect to Churchill refuse to become by the almost complete unanimity of the British establishment and appeasing Hitler and the Nazis. So you make this point in detail Churchill is not just ending up to Hitler. But against his party, his friends his class for that matter standing up to the known sympathies of the king himself where did this come from? He's an aristocrat. Yes. But class was it was wanted to set. I think so Hitler. It comes from three things that you don't get very much with the rest of his class and age and background. The first was his final semitism. He liked Jews. He got on with them on holiday with his father, light Jews. He thought that they gave the ethics of Wilson relation. He was Filo semitic. Even Zionist, of course, time without the decoration. And so so he had an early warning system when it came to Hitler, and the Nazis that was not found safe to people many of them anti semitic who was sitting on the benches with him. That's the first thing. Second thing was he was in historian, and he was able to place the threats to geminis Europe made by hit LA into the long kind of play of British history. So you go from Philip the seconds in the armada two Louis the fourteenth, who of course, was stopped in the Spanish the Spanish succession by his own grace, ancest-, more Joel more precisely and then Napoleon. And then the Kaiser who he of course, it will say fought in the trenches off to the glibly disaster. He went he was battalion commander and he actually wind into no-man's-land field thirty times in that conflict. Also got so close, the German trenches. He could hit them speaking on these on these expeditions out and they're not Hitler. So he could see it in the broad continuum of of British politics. And in the third thing is that he had come up against fanaticism up close and personal finances and his life when he was fighting in the Sudan when he was fighting on the.

"Fight. When Churchill heard the news, he was ecstatic again, this war would give him the chance to one take part in the revenge against the boars for their victory over the British in the Transvaal war and to give him the chance for glory that would push his personal political ambitions forward. And then going back to Miller's line that we included at the beginning of this episode, quote as war had grown, increasingly more likely. The most powerful publishers in London had begun rounding up their best foreign correspondents and scouring the city for new ones again. And again among the country's most cutthroat newspaperman one name in particular had risen to the four. Winston churchill. And this is how it all started to happen. Now that war was upon them. The offers to Churchill to employ his services as a war. Correspondent started pouring in now Churchill realizing again that this was the opportunity that he had been waiting for. He finally accepted an offer from the Morning Post a well established newspaper in England at this time to be there war correspondent at the travel to South Africa for four months to cover the conflict. Churchill was offered a thousand pounds for his services approximately a hundred and fifty thousand dollars in today's money. And so with that Churchill began his personal preparations for the trip. And I love this part, as we know in detail what he bought in anticipation of his journey outside of his purchase of a compass and some new suits, etc. Chur? Churchill went to a store called Randolph. Pain and sons a purveyor of fine wine and spirits from what I could dig up and check this list of provision out. This is what Churchill ordered for the trip per Millard, quote, a dizzying array of fine wines spirits and Lakers, including Millard continues six bottles each of eighteen eighty nine VIN. Dissect a light port French vermouth, and the very old v landed eighteen sixty six eighteen bottles of Saint million. Another eighteen bottles of ten year old scotch whisky and two dozen of roses cordial lime juice, and quote, so to translate all that he basically ordered a bunch of booze. There's wine there's cognac. There's brandy their scotch whiskey. I mean bottles upon bottles upon bottles of booze the total Bill for Churchill at Randolph pain and sons came to what would be four thousand dollars in today. As money. An incredible display of priority for Churchill at a half to say that this makes me like him just a little bit more after reading all that. And we also need to mention here that in addition to all these essential provisions Churchill was also bringing his personal valet with him on the trip. A man named Thomas Walden who had also served his father. And so just a few days after war was officially declared against the Boers Churchill was on the southern coast of England at the port of Southampton with his cases of booze already on board and his personal valet at his side, he boarded his ship, and he readied himself for the long journey ahead. It would take two weeks for the ship to finally reach South Africa. This gave Churchill who hated sailing actually, plenty of time to contemplate all that was to come for him. And of course, he didn't know it then, but he was leaving England on that day relatively unknown to his countrymen. And although his return was months away the next time that he set foot on English soil. It would be the complete opposite. Everyone would know who Winston Churchill was. And nobody including history itself would ever again. Forget him.
