I'm your host definitely an eye in your co host Alexis today we are covering the second episode of HBO's Hbo's his dark materials titled The idea of North What did you think of the episode? Alexis I. I believe that this episode gave us a lot more character work than anything else. It didn't exactly where I thought it would be knowing the pacing of the books folks. I was a little bit surprised but overall I liked it Did you think yeah again. I have read just the first book and you are just I in in trenched in all of the materials. Yeah everything. I was really really pleasantly surprised by this episode. I was feeling really bad about feeling conflicted about the last episode and I think a lot out of my internal criticisms or external. I guess since I recorded it and released it everyone all those criticisms I think still kind of stand but I think it was. It was just a lot of exposition. They're trying to shove into that first episode right but now that we've seen this episode I can honestly say I don't know what's going to happen happen even having read that book There's there's so much there's so much nuance all of the characters that were discovering here so it it seemed really exciting to me. I loved it and I'm super excited for how this series is going to go and I keep checking to see how many episodes we're going to get and it still seems like Eight episodes they're going to just do all of this and eight episodes e Definitely not that was another thing. I was wondering because they spent so much time on the events events of this episode in ended where it did Like what are they going to have to rush in the future part of the story right because we we already had this one world with just all of these interesting things happening and now we've got a whole new world. The people could explore like I'm I'm crazy I'm crazy about seeing where it's GonNa go very interesting. So do you want to get right into it. Yeah let's do it all right some brief housekeeping.

Mrs Coulter Arrive in London. Off of their airship. They arrive at this grand building and Lyra things is this yours. Here's all of it like everyone who comes to. UCS at the ball move headquarters. We are in a similar building right but MS goals are only has the one floor or just the one floor. That's who we just have the one room just the one floor. Though yeah honest we see once she gets to her floor. She has a secret key slash code that she needs to use to operate the elevator Which LYRA will not not and I don't think she'll ever know she shows her around the living room? Her terrace were her bedroom is and her study where she would like it to remain her own private space and Myers Bedroom. And let's her get settled in. There's some really beautiful like art deco slash mid century. Modern style style blinks happening in the rain. I which I love I love. I love men. Maude just as a concept. Now I loved it. When it was new in the sixties? Right It also gives this world kind of timelessness. I actually. I watched the first episode with my Stepson. Who is thirteen we now? Because I was dying to know what a child who was just kind of I think is the target audience of the books when they were written or you know it was young adult series are i. I wanted to know what his perspective was. And he's like when is this. It's like buddy I don't know it could be twenty years in the future could be twenty years in the past but it it looks. Amazing does all of her outfits. Yes absolutely all the fabrics that are chosen feel again very timeless. Because they are they're cut in I would say somewhat modern ways but the fabrics themselves are a little like a little rougher a little thicker than than what you would normally expect There's just an interesting thing. Yeah I love that. She's got a matching trenchcoat for Oliver outfits. Of course of course she does the So the Tan trench coat she wore in the first episode. I remember it struck me because of course it. Just the silhouette is perfect out frame Sir And I noticed this one does the same thing thing and someone get me the name of that. That Silas So we get a quick cut to Roger in the gablers hideout he's been gobbled confirmed and he meets with Billy Kosta and does not going to be the first time I say this. But these kids are impossibly cute. Oh yeah absolutely the Chubby cheeks little darlings and I love them and also it just from like soothing perspective. It was really nice to see that they have already found each other. So they're not completely alone in this God awful situation. Yeah yeah having that kind of cover gives them them well. We'll see you later. How that can that can translate into mistrust here? So why Miss Coulter having breakfast on the terrace Liar is looking out brazenly over the edge and Mrs Coulter asks how she is with heights and she says that she's never bothered never been bothered by them. Choose Asleep on the roof with Roger every other Sunday and Miss Larisa Lions Culture says no you didn't. She's like yes. Yes I did and you can see her here where she's is kind of testing the way that Lyra till's tales this her sleeping on the roof absolutely true Roger Climbing her hair. Maybe maybe not so much later. Yeah Ms Colza reminds her that she has her best people looking for Roger and then tells us at the the end that she's never been so sure about heights because she always says the occasional urge to just jump yet. That is something that I have heard people. The afraid of before is that feeling of standing on the edge and like not trusting yourself to not jump says an an interesting character moment for our. Yeah how are you with heights. I was scared shitless of them when I was younger and now I don't care anymore. I don't know what changed interesting repelling down a a forty foot wall in training something to do with that but yet they don't scare me anymore. How `bout you I get I don't know my one of the people who's afraid of jumping because I don't think I'm actually scared of them. I'll get really close so close that it's scary. You know I don't have a problem going up to hi places that are safe. Make an airplane owner of like the Kings Island Eiffel Tower type of thing. which granted isn't that? I if it save I don't and have any fear of at all but we like to go hiking a lot especially around here. There's a lot of mountains getting up to the top to the edge of these cliffs. It just It's yeah I think I might be one of those people who scared. I'll jump now. Don't smack your Dean and I have to ask. I'll certainly dry okay. I don't know just hate myself so much. We'll get into. We'll get what's happening. You know come in later. So culture takes six Lyra to lunch the Arctic institute straight from one food scene to another. I know And we see a scrambling or lionesses scaling ailing who mapped the currents of the great northern Ocean allies are who of course Miss Colter knows and Xl Irish is running around looking at all the sites. She's putting putting her disgusting child fingers all over the glass like a savage person and she sees an ir Ir Armored Bear School. That's huge attention. And we're Sir and there served sweetbreads courtesy of the chef so I mean we learn a lot here that Miss Coulter has is a scholar but mostly made her name by being a society woman She knows all of the right people to have lunch in meals with and and how to the level of composure that you should have employed society Especially as a woman media definitely. Yeah I think this is true today and he bit emotion is just a weakness for you as a woman so keep that in mind ladies. Don't be too because then you're a cold bitch. Yeah yeah of course always smile smile. A very polite Just the correct amount of wattage in your smile so find that and you'll be set what I did notice this thing. She does which is so. It's so subtle so eerie. But you know you can see is kind of flare at times and then she she. Does this does this thing when she every time she smiles and you can see. She's struggling to recompose. Herself is so scary yes she ruth. Wilson doesn't amazing job in this episode. Pass just showing this character and all of the subtlety in this character actor right. which will we'll talk more about that later? Whenever Yucky she is God donnas monkey shines in my notes? Do Okay same page club. So Lyra reminds her that. A child's eyes are useful and then maybe she could help in the search and Miss Coulter tells her that look around. There's not many women in this room and she can teach her two wheeled her power over all of these men if she allows her to be molded and Lyra agrees to just just trust the search of Roger to Mrs Coulter Here we see Lyra basically being pulled away from everything that she loves everything everything that she's interested in which is artifacts history just evidence that there is a greater world out there that she hasn't seen yet she's being pulled from that that into this world of just polite society and there are certain ways that you can and can't behave and it's all really boring. It's not something that Lyra cares about right by Mrs Coulter is treated with armor and bears. And she's been to the north and she knows all these people so surely this this is the way to do it. Yeah this must be useful information. Yeah maybe maybe So we get a scene of Lord Faw aw Farther Corum and Benjamin Deroy Tsa Discussing how Benjamin Reuter has been observing a truck routinely going in in and out of an empty warehouse and make a plan to strike that place with force. 'cause that's the best information they have I was very very worried that this would turn out to be wrong. that it'd be some kind of like dry cleaning warehouse right which may not too far off. Yeah So we go back to Lyra and Mrs Coulter and they're having a bath and they're having a nice time. I love that the monkey as its back turned here but so soaps respectful. It is respectful. But it's also a little bit strange because this is part of Mrs Coulter. This isn't a separate being right right. So why would and you know that she makes him turn around. Why why would she do that right? Shane it's almost as if if it's a completely separate entity for Mrs Coulter as if there are two halves to her Cheer really doesn't like that that other half of herself. Yeah that's informed. I just really don't know. I know something mildly interesting. That could play into why that particular reaction is happening between Colin. Her male demon Not Song say about that is not the same. Well obviously not the same between Larry and her male team Liam and he's been with her forever so of course they're also so kids. Yeah so Lyra tells a story about how Roger climbed her hair or wants and Mrs Coulter has a fistful. rehearing grabs end. Says I can't lie to me. Lying not blight in this must be part of her molding and is really kind of her. First show of savagery. Here So they go to to her room after the bath and PAN says you shouldn't change just to fit in and Lyra says she's Nice and she treats her nice and she deserves ABC. Nice things and I love this Actresses actor Daphne Kings Dialogue with her Demon Pan. Because this you can believably see these are the parts of yourself along with you know when he wakes her later to check on a noise that you have the same kind of internal dialogs in your own head right like Something just woke me up. there's this place in between being afraid of enough that something's actually happening to go. Check it out. Aw or being tired enough to say I need to go back to sleep. Yeah for sure. It's a really interesting way. It's also not have to not have narration Inside someone's head because I think that's a lazy way of filmmaking so this is fun it's It's interesting because expedition inside. Someone's head happens a lot. aww books And I feel like that is where a lot of adaptations suffer turning books to shows such as the works of Mr Stephen King. I A lot of his adaptations. Don't work as well because so much of what happens in those stories is inside the characters head. We see Mrs Coulter her still lingering in the bathtub and she's just staring off into the distance and we can only imagine what's going through your head and she's just kind of food in a trans one of many that she goes. She likes to go into and she realizes that her among is watching her and she makes eye contact with it and it turns away like it's pretending not watch That's not that's not a part of your soul. No it's almost like in that moment where she is is kind of a little bit emotionless but also like a little bit fierce like that is a weakness that she is showing that on her face and for even her her her demon which is supposed to be part of her to see that scrap of weakness embarrasses her a little bit right or it you know her demon knows that embarrasses heiresses Earth. Zoe looks away. Yeah another part of her to control and and Put away like you said so. We go to that scene where Pan Dan wakes up and hears banging in the walls and liar. Thor's or pillow at him to shut him up and they go back to sleep. Could be anything. It's an old house floor building. Don't know it's the city. The city makes noise so then we go to the gym arriving at a hideout just a little bit too late but they do find billy sweater vests. Oh my God that little sweater vest and easing Idaho Lord Foss says says that. They still don't know what they want. The children for which I'm Gonna I'm just GonNa say it right here. I think that they should know. Oh you're using the term gablers and GOP is short for General Blazin Board. Then and the journalist knows this and can't wait I. It can't wait to reveal this to us yet later in the episode But now it is yeah. It is interesting I'm trying to remember how that like nickname about kind of organically within contexts. The book and I cannot maybe just right you know what I'm going to give it a little bit more credit here. Maybe it's just children overhearing that being that term being thrown around and recycled into the GYP Shins. And that's that's all they know it does it does make you wonder though like who who would C. J. O. B. and say Gob for one. Instead set of the generalization board or whatever like right. Especially if you've seen a recipe of element joep job man forgot about that so the job I like it so we go back to. Roger Can Comforting Billy in their new hideout in basements in someplace and billy's missing his mom and he promises him that Lyra will come for them. These two little boys are heartbreakingly. Cute so sweet have little tears on their face. All the time Gary Trusting. Yeah Hands Liars coming for you. I promise so we go to Lyra getting fitted for dress and this definitely keen. I I love the way. She plays his career. She Ain't got much given it like running around you know. Yeah she liars a girl after my own heart I to appreciate appreciate a full range of motion in my clothing options. Yes in pockets. Zero pockets zero pockets. What if you need to punch somebody you can't exactly what male extent it's just a hit? Show yeah I think the seamstress actually listened to her though because add enough given it for her to be climbing around in the vents in the in the wall so true yeah yeah but blew his hair. Color was yeah. I would agree with that accurate. Yeah Laura has shot of her in the mirror saying this will lower to wield power so hugh if her uncle could see her. He'd be delighted. Mrs Coulter is sure anything to say about that scene. Yeah of course he would be delighted why were would be fitting right in with the patriarchy. Yeah and end. It's also her father refined out later. Is that why he'd be so delighted. Perhaps he is a shed. Yes in light of. We've seen the last episode knowing that now near isn't child abandoner basically It it seeing Lyra Mrs Coulter side by side in the same color really drives home. How well the casting was done for these two characters like it's totally believable title that they would be related yeah blue it's colder scholar to San? It is accurate so we see boreal in in the chapel of the Jordan College. I assume. And there's this great shot of him kneeling down before he enters a church and and The Masters Raven flying over him. It's incredible boreal. Came to find gremlins head and bring it back doc to the Magisterial Grumman. Sorry Grumman's head and bring it back to the magisterial him In this scene he invokes his power of the constitutional. Oh court which. I don't think we've been introduced to what that is yet. And they need to know where Grumman has been in. The master denies him. That right but tells tells him exactly where the skull can be found. I love the way. His Raven plays this and the scene to justice squawk Adam as he walks by I believe to my knowledge in the book. I don't think they have actually said the nope can't say that word. The CCD is the acronym for it and that comes from the book of dust. She is the first book of the new trilogy or Granddad they really get into the CDN while the shit that they get up to so it was an interesting initiative mission the CEO with that and the flood. You can see how they're really kind of remixing elements of all of the books. Bits of them into the series. Would you agree. Yeah definitely only which I mean makes sense if you consider that the second set of books didn't exist when the first set of written but if they did then obviously all that stuff would be next together So unlike you Alexis. Liar isn't bested books. She is bested rested adventuring and she reveals to Miss Cauldron the scene she knows about dust their negatively charged particles just like electrons and and you can see under the table and I think pan may be seeing this tier that Mrs Coulter is twisting her monkeys ear or grabbing. Its fern hardy. And she has her fingers like buried in its and she. She squeezing just like. She did with liars hair in the bathtub. Yeah and she just thinks she's inflicting this on herself almost like digging your fingers into your thyroid fire something like that. It's like a warning for him to not show anything even though she herself is showing something by pre pre punishing them. Yeah Yeah So. She explains away her knowledge of dust by saying she listened on passing college visitor and very convincing. Yeah and Mrs Coulter always does. Her also has a very convincing job of telling us that she knows less about. Dustin Laird US So we go over to mock cost her losing her mind and you can salvage his State of Tony Causes Hair that they haven't left the boat because she's afraid of losing her other son and she's just getting more and more desperate and the search party returns with proof that billy was there and that they're on the right path that they barely missed him. She's having a really bad day. Yeah so she cries and hands Lord. Fog goes to comfort her and while they are away. Benjamin Reuter has Tony. Ah Come in on a plan with him to find billy themselves. Who and who knows that place going to be? This is the last time we see them the episode La Nina next year. I think so. Yeah Yeah Yeah. We don't see them again in the upset on the the intimacy between Laura Mukasa. Yes Nisha makes you kind of think about some parentage. Not that it matters does because I asked the question last week about Benjamin to Reuter an MOC hoste and now I'm asking questions about Lord Fawn Mukasa. There's there's there's a way there's there's I mean I think has kind of energy about him which is what made him king but also also. Yeah there's an intimacy there like you said so. We go to the Majesty Room where the the cardinal surprises father macphail. Who by the way? I just learned. This is Daphne Qian's actual father other father mcphail. Is He really yeah. Sorry the actor who plays him okay. Yeah it's cool. That is interesting. So she's GonNa be in her best behavior on the set. I guess. Yeah Yeah what. What a conflict of interest there with her having the lead auditor and him being in the area That doesn't bode well for for future choice. Though it falls right in the rebel. We'll child narrative. Yeah Yeah So. The cardinal says that he's having problems with the general population board and that they're making too hugh much noise he proves their methods but not of their discretion and he tells father failed to let Mrs Coulter no that she needs to keep it cute or put it on mute phrased yes but also know and this Mrs I had to take a second. Sorry this is where we realized that there are multiple factions within the magisterial is not one unified whole and that's interesting. Yeah because it seems like Mrs Coulter is doing around thing boreal 's during his own thing which he's not even telling either of those sides right. What is wrong with the cardinal? Why is he doing this? Bend over routine. I don't know is that just making creepy is it to make him look like the chancellor I feel like. He looks like one of the sketches dark. Yes exactly the chancellor right. That's what he was called. Yes yeah I it feels a lot like that. Yes I think it is just meant to be menacing with as little. It is a little bug flying around right yeah us. He's not walking around with a cane or anything and I don't know if this could be just like scoliosis prosise or something like that could be there. Definitely people in the world who at first glance you would think we're hunching over. But that's just the way they're spying is when they're standing up right but there's the scene at the end where there's a big magisterial symbol on the wall. And he stands upright to look at it. I don't know I. I was confused about what was going on. But he is one of many people that we see in this episode. Have a problematic demon shape. His is I think it was a b but just like an ultra big B registers starring just like so crushable the so crushable so crushable double but also if there's a bird around that's not a demon I would be so scared they would just come down and swoop up my even. Then you're dead. Why wouldn't they yeah? These are all very good. Had questions that. I don't think we'll ever be addressed demons out being Incheon walks until like some flights you know. Does that exist in in this world. I don't know evenly unfortunate Ono. What if your mouse Dima get stuck on a glue try though Oh right? There's some problems here that you know you have to be quick witted as a person and as a demon guess. Yeah or now now. I don't know it's reflection the demon shape that your demon settles into is a reflection of your personality or inner sole something like that in your spirit yeah right. This is journalist has a delicate pretty face in delicate butterfly but not the heart of a real journalist. Yeah I guess I don't know about a fly also samples nectar from different flowers which you could say journalists. Do whenever they speak to people. Oh okay okay. That's good. That's very good moving on moving on Lyra and pan. Here's a a monkey shines going on. In the event tunnel system of the apartment Lyra follows the sound of the office where she finds Mrs Coulter's monkey in their culture from all way down the hall catches her and Lyra is wondering how she's able to get so far away from her demon and letting us this is the audience know that it's painful unnatural to be that far away You know I was wondering that myself earlier in the episode. Why doesn't Liar as demon as is a moth? Just go in there and find out what the noises while to get that far they didn't they don't do a great job explaining this. I don't think you have to you like if you already know. You can see what's happening but with that. The gablers demon the Fox. I think what is happening. There is that they are in kind Donovan. Translating a person a kids demon and because you have to stay within a certain distance like you have to follow your demon. And that's how I tell you sweeps behind you spooky spooky with these people are doing their demons and themselves. Yes So she gaslines flyer like a pro sensor back to bed. I was that was that pro gas lighting. It wasn't well you know it's gas it is. It doesn't work that lying. Yeah Oh you were wrong. He was beside me the whole time. Are you fucking kidding me. I am twelve NAM and not three well. LURA is special like Roger said in the last episode and Mrs Coulter's bewitching is don't work on Lara but they work on all these other kids including Roger in a way they don't work on Father Murphy later either right so once she sends her back to bed. She slaps her monkey on the head. and Jesus that was really well done as like a person who has witnessing abuse before it was spot on exactly just like casual right hate. Fullness feels natural. This is how you respond. It's like smoking a cigarette to relieve the stress. You just hit something you just gotTa Punch a hole in Waller slap a monkey slap yourself. Yep Yeah and I don't think we've talked about this last episode and I want to bring it up now. These demons were plagued by puppets they did puppetry for all of the most of the demons in the show and I can see why now because she really needed that things act off of but also they replace replace all the puppets with CGI afterwards which is okay. Yeah I mean if it if it accomplishes publishes the look that they're going for. I guess you can go to any lengths right to make that happen it. Just it does seem a little counterintuitive. Yeah it does make me wonder if they intended on doing a little bit better of puppetry And it didn't work out so they just did in the end they just did C.. J. On the top of that Because I don't know if you didn't puppets you could just have you know Andy Circus in a green suit acting against Ruth Wilson. And why did you up at all. They're also using live animals to Lord. boreal snake is alive. Snake is cool. His snake In some scenes we'll Tigra Lord boreal. Snake we'll talk about it right now. Actually so he comes to the college or it comes back to the College at night and we get to meet his demon Do they name is demon. Her They they may have at some point but I missed it They go to the crypts and they're searching for the most recently treated skull they I find it and there's a hole in the skull and he puts boreal puts his hand on it and says that this is not Grumman and Azriel lied so my question is who is who does a SCO belong to you. Why is there a hole in it and where is grooming the people in the north of this world? World are known for tra- panning themselves which is called whenever you borehole onto your own skull. Tartars that we've heard about No it isn't the tartars. It is the the race of northern indigenous people which I can't remember the name of at the moment. Okay something they did on purpose. That wasn't the way he died. No yeah that's it again. This is the thing that you would get from the books because they explain it actually in that first scene where Lord Lord Azriel is trying to get funding from Jordan College They discussed repainting there. And it's too like increase connection to dust. Yeah ideas that it's going straight to your dome piece it's very it's very love crappy and thing and I'm not sure if that's something that lovecraft in Benton in But it's a way it's in the lovecraft lords away to create another is for you to make contact with the elder gods or the older ones so I get it I understand. It's based in reality. There there are people who did and maybe still do that. MHM something to consider as I don't know if anybody else listen to saw bones but don't drill a hole in your head okay fine. I won't I I'm wondering now to you is bore. It does boreal have some kind of secret ability. Extra ability ability to put his hand on the skull and understand its origin or who is or is he just making an assumption because it's been Japan and he's like no whitebread full do this to him. So right I mean because he has his also say are different or unrelated ability to who move between worlds which I guess we'll find out more about how later So now this is the part where he goes a secret creepy garden and he slips through a Shimmery portal to another world in. It looks like it's Modern Day maybe like in our world right now what London England would look like. It is Oxford era are we we learn at the end of the episode kind of so and asks him where he was and he was like. I was in Oxford. But you didn't ask me which one do got him mm-hmm so he gets into a car. That has lots of parking tickets you can tell it's been there awhile and uses a cell phone to text someone on that. He's back a touch screen cell phone but such screens cell phones. There we are. We know where we are now so we go to Lyra In her room playing with the compass and Coulter says that she has guests coming and asked Lyra Tuesday in her room so obviously she immediately leaves the room to spy on on. What's going on Father mcphail rives with Father Garrett and Father macphail and Mrs Coulter speak privately privately in her office. She puts the keys away in her breast pocket and very closely offers tea or water or something and ends. She's doing her best kind of seduction bewitching power-wielding blue wearing routine here is not working on him. No it's almost working the not quite. Don't you hate that. People have principles and you just can't use them. Yeah totally. I can relate to that absolutely so he drops on her that the cardinal as sent a warning and as Lyra Lyra listens outside father garry catches her. Who has another problematic bug? SHAPE DEMON So good luck with that Garrett and he by by way of doing that alerts coulter that Laura's outside and she dismisses both of these men in Lyra goes back to a room him and for some reason feels like the Lee Theater is at risk in the scene just because the magisterial is in the house perhaps apps and she feels like she needs to keep it close to her so she puts in a handbag and keeps it on her always LYRA coulter rather shows the gentleman outs. It's no other some mildly interesting choices with pans form in any given scene. I I know pants. Final form is going to be okay. Okay and we've seen it a few times. That's what that's what I figured is that I know from reading the books books that he he changes into some very different things and others seen the very beginning of the first book where they're just playing with other children. He turns into a dragon and I assume that he always turns into the same age type of animal. You can't turn into a fully adult male lion because he you know he's thirteen year old. Yeah so he's always going to look like Simba from the Lion King Right But yeah I seem to favor like three or four forms. Yeah this this ermine white thing we see and there is is a is a moth turns into a lot of the wildcat which is when she's being very fierce adore the fiercest things she can undo it so cute very cute and then the What is it called to Martin Pine Marten? Yes rush with the stuff stuff on its neck with the ears and all that cute little ears all so cute that remind foreign is absolutely my favorite minds you spooky phase big expressive eyes twitching. Oh dying okay anyway. Yeah whoever did the animal work on the show. Why weren't you available? When they the linking just just asking questions here guys in good very expressive so then we so so then Lyra enters the living room with Mrs Coulter? Tony I meant to mention sorry. We kind of get the feeling that maybe the magisterial wasn't supposed to know that Lyra was with Mrs Coulter. She they they give her a lot of pointed looks like Father Garrett when he catches her his first of all. Why are you here and second of all who are you? And then father mcphail gives that same look after her I'm not sure why matters them yet. She's got young female assistant When they already know? She's experimenting on Children. She she names her and they know that today on the lookout for a kid named Lyra us the problem. Okay LYRA which. I don't know why she did that. Had she called her literally anything else maybe in the heat of the moment yeah she lost her self loss. A little bit of control wasn't a monkey there. Nothing to squeeze so Mrs Coulter Lyra Wearing Handbag and tells you to take it off. It's little old for her and Lara says You got angry with those men. Nine wasn't she's a year you are angry now and she says she gets. It's proof of how angry she is the monkey with just not even any kind of I wouldn't even say it's verbal just a grunt. She was able to mm sick this monkey on Pan and they have this confrontation. More pan goes through all kinds of shapes and chooses his fiercest little wildcat chat thing is ultimately overcome by the monkey and Ms Coulter says that we will have a confrontation which I will always win. And she does. And in the heat of passion and yelling Lyra she reveals that Lord Azriel is actually her father. Yep It's a hell of a bone to drop on. Somebody's yeah and Lyra Larry Asks who were mother was and she says well could have been anyone and the way she says is that in the way she talks about how they used the bump into each other and the fact that she even knows Lord Azriel is her father in the fact that they both wear blue very very well makes me wonder what Miss Colter knows. She's not telling us all right. Yeah she seems she. I mean she seems it's always be wrestling with something but we can only ask questions. I guess Could be a reason why she has taken this strange wild child under her wing Beyond beyond stadium stuff. Yeah so LYRA room and asks to be left alone and on either side of the door. They are dealing with some things she tells the compass and tries again to make it work and try to find out the truth about Roger is Mrs Coulter and Lord Azriel and she turns some dials and feels like she's getting closer because she kicks it away and we see a have a little spark of life. Yeah whenever she when she kind kind of finishes her the the most emotional part of what she's going through with a moment and kind of takes a deep breath and resettles herself. That is when the needle starts taking a little bit on the only theater interesting and that is important. Yeah Mrs Coulter. Outside of her door is wrestling with what she she's done. She feels you know really upset. Having dropped his knowledge on Lyra I think probably family more than anything else. Yeah I yeah. I'm I'm wondering if she's feeling worse about having dropout knowledge on her or having lost her control troll in front of her right. It's all it's something that Mrs Coulter clearly is not used to dealing with. She can wield power over men but she cannot control this a little girl. She expects children to be sweet and obedient which makes me think she hasn't been around a lot of kids that weren't just objectively terrified of her. So their are the `having yeah right exactly. She's never been around a comfortable kid before so she doesn't know this is just how they are. Yeah unpredictable. No wonder your father left you at the college is a baby. You are a lot capital letters. We see boreal meet with Amanda and a cafe who expected him to come a lot sooner and he's demanding to know about the other world and wanting to seize demon and the end he does finally relent and Joe's the snake that's in his sleeve sleeve absolutely going to come back later. Wait how much focus was put on that. I know all your tricks. Do you think this is a poisonous snake or I mean is it. It would be venomous. Sorry I'm honored. Yeah Poisonous Jess S.. Venomous snake would've eight boys. And that's what I was asking. Perhaps if you bet the right part maybe I don't know it looks just like like Maybe a milk snake to me. Why would somebody who is the way they? He is have a snake. That isn't dangerous. That seems James deeply unlikely. Yeah Yeah I feel like boreal. Snag is really dangerous. This Dick Number to Welcome in folks going to be a lot of those. So he says he's paying him not to advise him and I don't know what he's paying him for because he's clearly not taking care of his car or anything. Yeah but asks him to help find what I believe is grooming with an Osprey for a demon who must have crossed over. He didn't die. Lord Azriel lied Grumman's alive and in this world. There is a lot of stuff happening in this episode. That in the books does not sure what until the second one. It's really interesting the way that they've kind of chopped and screwed food the timeline of some things. Yeah I love it. Yeah because I I like to. I'm I'm of two minds. You could say I beat my demon in this when it comes to this category memory is that I want to know. I want to read the books to understand kind of what's happening but I also like not being spoiled when it comes to a story like this and letting happen the way. It's it's supposed to happen right and if you like. HBO's giving giving me that experience by remixing things I do. I like as weird as it can be as someone who has so much foreknowledge of the books to watch this. I am really enjoying the construction of the information and just the way that things are being revealed to us. I think it makes a lot of sense. Yeah good writing good. That's why we're you're perfect spirit guides for this journey We go back to Myron. Mrs Coulter having a dinner on the terrorists do they have all of their meals on the terrace. I mean if you have a terrorist why the fuck if the the weather's nice absolutely bugs I guess sorry eating outside sometimes yeah sure But LYRA is kind of picking at her food which looks like boring dull food And it looks. It's really tasty to me. Does that mean a boring adult now. In India taste we have some culture. Okay fine fine. High of taste and culture better eating habits and a twelve year old. I think is probably an okay thing to to own and another scene aware Love in the scene where Lyra stabs down at one of her eggs or something like that. She's so good. Coulter tells Lyra that maybe Roger you know what maybe he never left home. Maybe he stayed there and he forgot about you and so did everyone else because they're not going to tell you that he's still there right. Answer it's time to move. Yvonne and Lyra says euro-lire does her stabby routine with the food and she's so good as Lyra. I don't know what maybe you imagine. When you're reading the bunks as a child or anything like that but I was hesitant to move on from the Golden Compass thousand seven even Lyra because I thought the way she delivered the dialogue was very similar to how the book was written That same Bradey way right but You know my biggest complaint with Lyra. Last episode was that she didn't tell tall tales like she does in this episode. She does as kind of a in some ways a survival thing but also just trying to have fun in any given circumstance right you can see that. She's got that penchant in her and Mrs Coulter is very eager to drive out of her Can have immagination in this house soup unless you are the architect because Oh my God. This is amazing. Coulter leaves with her monkey and Okay so these things are happening simultaneously. So I'm GonNa just going to go in order kind of of the time line in here. So coulter leaves their monkey and arrives at the Gablers Tori him which is maybe not as far or away as we might have been led to think right. It's walking distance. I think I think it might be in the same building in the basement. Yeah I don't see her go anywhere other than the elevator. Oh No I think we are in the front steps of a building walking up now. We'll never mind but it's close this is going to be And this is like a granite building. Makes me think they wouldn't have something that dingy. I don't know it's very close to the basement though season. Yeah because this whole adventure. She's not gone very very long at all either so she arrives and finds the children and helps and uses her bewitching charm to urge us anything any any sort of hope I think they Guam's you now and helps them those who can't write write letters to their friends parents and loved ones and just the the fact that she isn't adult woman who is acting kindly and has a pretty face that could be a little reassuring Even though it makes absolutely no sense to a kid to see something like that this is a chance to reach my parents my only chance. Why would I believe this lady right and this is czar? I like confirmed proof. Actually visually seeing Mrs Coulter at the scene of the crime basically. Yes yeah yeah exactly. But then we're going to see a lot more of scenes of crime. She's got a paper trail. Larry goes to you the study to find out what he's hiding. And of course like everything. It's locked and Lyra discovers the secret monkey passages bills on the walls and goes into the study that way and we see really cleverly a lot of this amid bod decoration and things as Li- mobile is very cleverly built built for the monkey to us I would love to know is who got into those Vince and built the little nailed in the little wood blocks that make that let you climb. I'm to the second level of it's it's crazy yeah it's insane or who did the tiling inside of the themselves like I don't know if you've ever done a back splash rush. which seems like nothing compared to this? It's difficult yeah any time you introduce verticality into a project. Object in just problems problems for days so she uses the the monkey shines passages to find the AH general ablation board papers and in a very clever way breaks into the lock to desk-drawer by taking out the one next to it yeah Just poured desk design really Yeah I don't know why that inner wall didn't go up all the way but I also don't know why demons are separate from people pool and magic exists and so on so forth those are fair questions So as Roger is talking about where he's is going as he's writing his letter Lara's also finding blueprints for the station that Roger going to and that's where they're going to head in the north. She also finds blueprints firm machine that she doesn't quite understand that it seems like the machine separates the children in their demons in two separate cages And that's what we know about something that she's working on right now but you know we can. We know that Lyra being separated from her demon too long enough for him to leave another room for them to put in separate cages. That can't be good. Whatever they're doing doing yet even joined cages like that? Yeah doesn't seem right any time. You put a kid in the cage. It's bad dog good. It's morally incorrect. And you shouldn't do it. Yeah sorry. Children should not be put in cages or separated from their parents or demons. Yeah in any situation to never be separated from their support structures actress no matter what the reason so after all of this we see Mrs Coulter dumping all the letters that children have just written into into an incinerator so maybe the most evil thing that we've seen her do so far. Yes yes. I think. 'cause she watches it burn. Yeah and it's like real happy about it. Yeah it seems like this entire. I don't know how many children they've gobbled old. If this is I mean Shelton would you say are in this bunker. Twenty less navy a little bit less but so if the Gypsies are moving or law sixteen children and there's less than that in this group. This isn't the first time they've taken a group of children doesn't uh-huh doesn't seem like there seems to be a system set in place for this already like the fact that they are being moved around multiple times to let writing thing even feels like yeah. That's what I was trying to get to. You is let writing it. was that just Cathartic for Mrs Coulter. altern that moment or is that just the thing they always do. Is that just like a the ALICA. Pacifying tactic for the kids. She's she's interesting. She's complicated complicated. She is complicated yet. LYRA Russia's back to her desk just in time for Mrs Coulter to get back home and the monkey monkey tries to pet her demon in a way to maybe make up with her and away yeah. It's awkward Super Gross. Don't like it. So that night. LYRA seals Oliver Vents. Away from the monkey shines and BLERTA's give discovers just how difficult to understand understand. GROWNUPS really are. Yeah they got a Lotta Shit going on in their heads just all the time. All the time gets complicated when she get responsibilities so so in your Oh my moral compass broken sometime later before the party boreal arrives back in our world her Through his slippery little world portal. Nice may wonder what let's places like. They got lucky enough to get prime real estate in the middle of the city and in both worlds. This is an abandoned building that no one's ever going to be sneaking around in ISO. Yeah I know I know something about this but also I just wanted to discuss the the Shimmery doorway affect those really well done yes because because it is so subtle that subtle that if you are indirectly looking for it you might not notice. Yeah yeah it's really good. It's also very pretty also he. So did he have a change of clothes in the in that conservatory or like do your clothes change Hanes when you crossover. This is not something I ever heard about right. Does he just wearing 'cause most of the close our world that were centered in their kind of timeless in a way like they might be a little dated. But it's still just a suit right right. Yeah you could be doing like a retro. Look in modern England was that he has a yeah he has a like the tie and all the Guterman on that but when he was in what we could recognize as our world two thousand eighteen world or whatever He was just wearing a i. Think a black suit jacket over a black button-down shirt or something. It was much more simple. You're right did he change. Who's got a bunch of clothes in the trunk of his car in the trunk of his abandoned conservatory? So LYRA is serving champagne. Mrs Coulter Sparty. Dan Damghan little serving and a reporter named Adele finds her and she accosts Lyra to ask her for more more information about and within the scene she reveals that. GOP's is short for Gablers. And how do you figure this so yeah I know there was an interesting choice. Like okay. You literally just showed us all the papers. You focused on the job at the top of the papers. They were big font dont but we still apparently needed another character. Just spell it out for as a third step of that three step reveal. You've made it. Here's your chip. So boy arrives in this really menacing sexy way in an elevator who knew the writing elevator could be sexy. It is the only thing that could be better as if boil and Mrs Coulter Rent Elevator together. I guess that would be some tension fun Give me the keys to that elevator. Ann Coulter finds him at the elevator when he arrives and tries to find out where he was so at this point that we understand understand that she doesn't know he's traveling between worlds either. Yeah that seems to be the case and then we see adult the reporter just spelling everything everything out and then Mrs Coulter sees her realizes that she wasn't invited twists her arm and forces her out. Now as Lord Borough or is his name Lord boreal he's boreal he's just my daddy boreal escorts her out. ooh Daddy then Lara's seize the opportunity because the elevator is unlocked to escape. She almost does it then. Goes back for the elite. The ometer runs out of time time and space and just goes out the window. She's approach roof. Escapes Crosses Multiple Fire Escapes and is gone. And I'm wondering in this scene. How far can Mrs Coulter's demon? Actually travel could Mrs Coulter's demon have gone on the Rufin followed her. 'cause that's kind of what monkeys do as climb could have. You could have gone to as far as he couldn't follow her Does he have information that he sharing back with Mrs Coulter. He's wrong questions. Why was he in? Mrs Coulter's office. I sorting through papers. When she was in her bedroom? Why did he need to go through the laws to do it? Why can you just walk down the fucking hallway right apartment? But does she built him all of these things. I'm yeah just a lot of questions here but I'm loving it. This isn't this is a nice relief from watching the watchmen on HBO which is just all questions and mysteries. And who knows what the fuck sewing on you know. You're not gonNA know into Libertarians. This I am these. Are these engaged episode by episode questions. Where I'm just immersed in this world and not confused I love it? I just know that everyone's got a secret side to them. Just like real humans. I guess so we see Boreal Puts Adele Alan Carr and crushes her delicate pretty butterfly healing. Her yes so and is the person does too. It's my understanding okay. And if a person dies assumed the demon dies to disappear into poof of dust. I gosh it seems really risky. I don't know for anyone to settle on a bug shaped even like I said earlier. Yeah I I mean. I guess doesn't make sense knowing that you don't really choice. It's kind of just how it happens and also I don't know there's conversation to be had about how weird it is to new anthropomorphized certain aspects of animals to make them match us. Yeah that they would be in India. Okay it's all it's all stupid but demons. E are you always eating for two like as Lyra always going to be buying cat food so in L. A. L. L.. Just mentioned this. I don't think it's a spoiler for anything. But in the book they mentioned the the Demons physicality is not. It's very light like it has almost no wait so no. I don't think they have outer. What shape yeah? I don't think they have to eat. I think they just you can feed him snacks or so they're connected in that that way that they you can sustain your own body and it sustains the demon as well Gresham interesting which I kind of appreciate it makes them mm feel less like pets and more like this spiritual extension of yourself. Yeah so I mean it makes me wonder all seriousness if you know I'm Mohawk that circling in the sky do I view a demon mouse as the same as mouse. No I think these without each other other maybe protects them from. I don't know I wanNA give us show all the credit. It deserves Scott World building in questions. Yeah so the Gablers at the behest of one very creepy nurse move all all. The children to the station separated the boys and the girls and we see they're marching the children out and Roger and billy right next to each other still tears ears on their Chubby adorable cheeks. Little Billie at one point earlier in the episode his glasses kind of fog up a little bit. And just because you tell us like crying or it's hot in there and it's just sadness heartbreaking link. You say I've said it again. I'll say it before. I'll say it a million times in no kind of grammatical sense. These kids are cute. And I'm worried yes you have every right to be worried I I appreciate that. The woman who is directing them tells them to left and right and it's her left and right not. There's Oh oh that was a very yeah. That was a specific choice. Yeah she's teaching children. She's just there to collect also also it's you know she is the authority So it's hearst. Her perspective is the only one that matters right. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it. No you're absolutely right. Excellent point so finally Lyra finds an alleyway and they don't believe they're being followed but she finds a doorway at the very end to sit down and sleep at an Pinson. You know the the Su- senses of self. She's you know really lamenting the fact that she lost out on on this powerful woman and maybe she should have trusted her or something like that that she really felt a lot for her but also pants. Alignments is telling her to go to sleep. You need to relax when you defined Roger. We need to make a plan and just as she's about to drift off to sleep. We hear the whistling man in the Fox and she gets gobbled And that's how we end the episode yet Nelson good old-fashioned gob lowering good old fashioned gobbling. Just like mom used to make she. Okay so what I know. How is that Mrs Coulter's in charge of the gablers? This is the same person that got billion. Roger Lyra definitely got gobbled did Mrs. This is colder. Send this person or is this person. Just galling on his own and snatched up Lyra I I think I know but also the show is beginning to like skew away from the books in certain ways and so I don't know for sure I feels like he's acting independently. Because if I feel like Mrs Coulter Still WanNa put out the pretense of being nice and Dan still wants to offer Lyra certain kind of world. Yeah so I don't think he would be as gruff about it as he was but they also there's there's a conversation with between Mrs Coulter and father macphail in her hallway where he mentioned sacrifices and having to make sacrifices To move the things forward so who knows could be one of them now. Does this gob Ler guy. Respond to Lord mcphail's commands that he sent him after her who good questions. Yeah House man so good at finding lonely children creepy. Be Your question. Yep maybe just kind of lives on the street. He people can people know if there is something wrong with you in this world based on your demon and I have a feeling that he doesn't fit in very well with normal society. He may be a fringe kind of person. Yeah so just just infinite time to follow children. It'd be a fucking in Crete. He is a proud gob Ler gob blow for money. Gobble you want me to do you. Ready for feedback. He's helped you. Yes Stewart okay. Well if you have avid back that you'd like to send to us you can do so. TV BALD MOVE DOT COM. We also have a discussion going on in the forums. FORMS OF DOT com every week about the episodes. It's we have just a few pieces of feedback this week which I am going to read in order of spoiler ns NS. None of these emails are going to be spoiler this week except for the last one and I'll put a big disclaimer again before we get into it. Our the first piece of feedback is from David and David he wrote this before this most recent episode. But it's an response our last podcast. What if demons get get their names from the parents demons like the human parents name the human and the parents demons named the baby demon? I mean the souls are connected to make a demon so why not just as reasonable as anything else. Yeah I liked that idea. Except in the case of you know like orphans or people who ooh whose parents die in childbirth or die before they're born type of thing maybe that's why we see some kids whose demons friends are named things like router which is not a good name. But he's maybe that was the name given by his person was. He was old enough to where. It's rather doesn't really make much sense. It's bad it's a name that you give a barn cat. Yeah you're right that that's an excellent area David like it too. I think if you're one of those people who follow tradition then then surely I could see that being the case To begin saw writes in and says I wonder if you could elaborate on the religious aspect of the show you alluded to the fact that the Golden Compass movie didn't do well in part because of religious objections to it but I'm not quite sure I understand what those objections are or were. I've seen. People refers franchises the Anti Narnia. But I don't really get why I gather. It has some kind of anti religious bias but because I'm so new to the story I haven't really grasped that yet any any light you can shed on. This would be greatly appreciated. I think maybe the easiest way to explain this in kind of a broad way. That doesn't spoil anything is to you. Say Imagine the story of Paradise lost except reverse the roles of the good and the bad people and that is kind of in some ways is what this story is doing so at subverting your idea of original sin and saying that. Maybe that's something that should be preserved which is not something that the church appreciates interesting and it also They're they're bigger themes of sexuality and and anytime you start talking about that church is going to get mad about it right. Yeah you can just the use of the word demon as something something good right. Yeah I mean you can see a little bit Maybe in Lower Azriel speech in the first episode that the science science versus religion the exploration of other worlds or things. We don't understand is considered to be heretical. Aw and you know those people. Scientists want to expand their greater knowledge. And it seems like there are people who can maybe try to do both like Mrs Coulter splitting that line between wanting to explore science and getting into you know working for this religious Group I think that's something that we are going to understand a little bit more as a series progresses. But you'd you'd you'd really know better than I would I think also the The majesty here you could see that as a parallel to the Catholic Church and they are pretty clearly really the sneaky most bad guy characters in the story at least so far and I can't imagine that church people would that'd be cool with it being you know then being shown as this authoritative vengeful and just bad group riles people and nobody likes so much different from the real Catholic Church. It's it's it's very different no. I can't even believe that anybody would even draw these lines between these things. Yeah so that's just a little taste of the differences third okay. Our last piece of feedback is from Brian. Brian says another good episode of his dark dark materials. I'm enjoying the pace of the show. So far feels like attention is being given to build on the world and the characters. But it's not boring or slow. Yeah I would say hey. It's not either of those things. 'cause they've been a lot of critics have said it's slow and plotting to episode four but I can't say that that's true I saw awesome early hero. Brian going up. Sorry to interrupt as early of US complaining that the show taking too long to go anywhere and was kind of Dole but I found riveting whenever I come to a TV show. A book read are often find myself slightly antsy waiting for the setup and early interest to get through so the meat of the story can be told but here I have been enjoying. Join the build up. I think that Perlman's original work mainly from the Pov of Lyon. The Golden Compass gives plenty of opportunity for the show to paint along the edges with extra details and information and sometimes pulling from future material to make the world and story feel more full. And even here's mother thoughts I had while watching. Those damn kids are GonNa don't make me cry every time. It seems a Roger has at least one tier rolling rolling down his round face in every scene. He's in and him comforting. Billy was so sweet. It makes me sick. Yes we had those same thoughts. Accurate the relationship between Jordan College. Maybe more specifically the master in the magisterial seems a lot more adversarial. Than I remember the books were Slash Ara the other colleges this defiant not sure of scholastic sanctuaries going to keep them safe much longer seemingly thoughts on that because they think from the books there were like twelve ish colleges in Oxford including saint. Sophia's where Mrs Coulter is from an enjoyed college or Jordan. College like the head of the college is I think it might just be. The biggest one in the area are the most prestigious prestigious. They just stages Brian continues. I was pleased to see characters moving between worlds so soon the series when reading the book suddenly seeing characters that we know from Lila's Lila's world rather traveling to other worlds in the subtle knife always seems to me introducing the concept of the windows. Right from the star is a welcome change. I do think it's a nice way to blend the two together because the first book is very much an adventure adventure story and then in the second and third books things. It's still an adventure story but it it changes things start going off the rails Ellsworth. They like he like Brian said they start. Introducing these concepts like we're in no. Are we in the spoiler section. Not Quite eight okay yet okay. Then I'm not gonNA say close close final L.. Air Finally in this part before the spoiler section. He says that Ruth Wilson is absolutely captivating to me. I think it's her mouth. It's so uniquely shaped and seems the the more depending on what she's emoting anger joy concentration sadness all have their own unique. Look she's doing a great job and when she lets her anger get the better of her and does slips the Azriel being Larry's father thing then cries outside Larry's door chef's kiss beautiful. Yeah I agree. It's absolutely absolutely her mouth. I mentioned earlier that it's the like the smile and the thing that she does. It's it's interesting. Her mouth is doing a lot. Her eyes are doing a lot to. I will say she does a really good job. at certain points. And it's what makes us so creepy is that she is smiling without smiling with her is she. She doesn't get job like letting her is be a little bit dead while the mouth is doing a lot of the work right yeah. It's perfect perfect. Yeah it's her. It's the opposite of these demons. They it's all in the eyebrows. I guess These demons have so much expression going on with them all of them at the same time and she has everything real that these demons. Don't Andras knows what to move and and whatnot to ruth. Wilson knew her before the show But I don't I can't recall anything I've actually seen her in. We sorry in that really that really small theater that we saw the the ghost movie on but it wasn't actually goes movie. I should've look look this up before the name of it. I don't remember the one with The red headed guy in the beginning. yeah little little monsters little stories little stories. No maybe I don't know it. Oh my God sorry that I don't know the name of my own. This is not my thing you will learn. Were you listen to me but it is this kid who mother used to work. I think in this mansion Incheon so he was a kid there at the same time as these two girls that were sisters in. This little stories wasn't is that unfairly sharing that's what it was called in the whole like his whole trauma was based around. Yeah breaking a piece of the car mirror those. Yeah the carbons. Yeah okay. Yeah Yeah I get that. I don't remember her from that but she's she was the I would say the the female lead in that role. I just tried to block that movie on because I wasn't great is pretty rough. But she's she's incredible. So that's all you've got at four non spoiler things. I'm going to read the second half of Brian's email and consider this to be spoiler e completely. You've been mourned. Yeah so again if if you want to tap out now. And you don't want to hear spoiler spoiler e outright spoiler everything's then will we will see you next week again you can send feedback to new. TV BALDWIN DOT COM FORMS MOVE DOT COM facebook twitter instagram all social media bald move. You can find us there. I thought that we were GONNA get bears in the next episode but now I'm not so sure I'm sorry on. HBO and BBC's behalf why. Hey why don't you think that it seems I baird time. No no her being gobbled seem so personal and direct them. I'm thinking maybe maybe she's not going to go straight or I mean the next scene. ARE WE GONNA pick up right in this alleyway in the Japan's are GonNa be saving her. I don't know This is a spoiler. The way we are we're in the spoiler section Yeah it was interesting. I thought that the end of this episode we would have the options swooping in and saving saving her. But now I'm not okay. Well the preview that they showed makes me think that that will happen in the next episode. I'm surprised that it hadn't already already happened. We spent so much time on other things I think those the scenes with Lord boreal jumping around different universes took up some at that time. Yeah do them online to hang every one of these episode on a cliffhanger though. Yeah this reasons be automatic tension. Yeah hopefully that will resolve itself immediately and then we can finally see her learn to use the golden compass the lethal mater. Yup knows when she in the book starts learning to. Yeah hot spoiler. Are they trying to tell us that. Mrs Coulter's Monkey Demon can go far away from her from what I remember. There are a few ways to achieve this journey through the underworld slash death world. Without your demon go through a ritual that the witches perform or several your connection to your demon via the a year eighteen involve anger. Is this just the case of Mrs Coulter practicing moving farther and farther away from her demon until they can be farther apart than normal people or but not like the witches. These are all good questions. There's also a fourth way that's introduced in the new trilogy. Where if for whatever reason like when you're a kid there's some childhood accident that forces you to be away from your demon if you survive that? Then you're you can just be away from them you can be further away from them So so it could be that it could be some past trauma which I do know of a little bit of past trauma related to Mrs Coulter. believe she. She was sexy sexually assaulted in her mid mid twenties because of course she was. If you've read the new books you yeah. She's a woman in a story so obviously how else would she experienced. Drama Alexis yes but also like I get it because I feel like over half of the women I've spoken to in my lifetime have been sexually assaulted at some point so I get it but yeah it could be. Okay guys everyone everyone so not great. Not a great back story knows what we've got you know character development through sexual dramas never great They yeah it could be. It could be any of those things we don't know I. They're doing some stuff with the story. That is different from what I know of the books I mean that's just from Maya uneducated take is I thought she. I thought it was kind of a mental illness that maybe she had bipolar disorder. And that's how she was able to. You know both practiced I physically getting away from her demon and making that connection weaker but also that they seem to be acting in at odds with each other and their purpose. Why why was he digging through papers information with demon not have that newsy get without her or the other thing I was thinking in that scene is that I thought thought you could? Also you shared information with your demon so if Lyra wanted pan to turn into a hawk and fly up high Lyra immediately really knows everything that Hans sees so I figured that Mrs Coulter just trying to get some information from the papers didn't WanNa get out of bed sends demon in there to look something yeah could be could also be like her subconscious. Maybe feeling a little bit of guilt about this whole thing that she's doing so the monkey is like reviewing these papers doing this. This is my daughter. Where where do I go with this? Where the lines? Yeah spoiler alert spoiler oilers action. I'd say whatever she's her mom but the Demon A. Demon Monkey. I color ehlers blue. Well no he's got that like blue coloring around his eye on the blue white gold thing. Yeah Gotcha Lover. I couldn't look. It's face long enough to see that stuff. Monkeys kind of freaked me out monkeys freak the hell out too but to human jason. It's it's just too close to the UNCANNY valley right. It's so pathetic the you want to feel bad for it. Which is why I wanted to look at it but also this is part of personality? So why am I feeling bad for this thing. Yeah Yeah who's I duNNo. It's as it is complicated and they are portraying the demon as more of the victim here in the show. Then I think they have avenue both that terrible movie and the books Ryan I think we are going to wait a little bit to talk more about the Guillotine and the witch stuff when that comes up but All great questions Finally Brian's hot ist I spoil her nice bit of foreshadowing slash winking at the readers with Mrs Coulter's talk about her fear of heights and urged to jump. This is something I knew nothing about but I assume just from the way she said it in that scene. I assume that it's GonNa it's checkoffs Terraced jump Chekhov's roof gun right. Yeah you don't think she was going to jump on the jurors if you don't think she was going to drown herself in that bathtub. Then that's on you. That's don't even a spoiler right I This is the point where I tried to remember how everybody ends up and the story.

His Dark Materials - S01E08 - Betrayal

"Welcome to Baltimore television the officially unofficial place for all of TV. I'm your host Ashley on your Co Host Alexis. Today we are covering the final episode of the first season of his his dark materials on. HBO AND BBC titled The Betrayal Betrayal. Lexus what did you think of the episode. I think this episode existed. There's mysterious music in this room. Okay I did too. Yeah I think this episode existed basically just for the last seen the the betrayal in question and spent a Lotta time spinning its wheels before then But visually this was one of the most beautiful episodes we've seen so far absolutely the Aurora. Yeah off everybody's faces exactly the whole thing's dark but still bill just infused with all of this color and makes it feel more magical than anything else we've seen series. Yeah now I I. He liked the episode. I want to like all of this but and I meant you go back and kind of do a quick rewatch of all of the episodes before this just to see how it flowed but I feel like there was a lot of there was a lot of misspent time Maybe there is too many scenes of the boreal and will the just to like cut up the action. Maybe there were. Yeah just seems like they. Maybe like early episodes feel like they spent a lot of time with the JIP- Shins and establishing pushing. All these really emotional relationships and nothing with himself inch since which is interesting right that and we are getting especially especially in this episode. We're getting really short shrift on a lot of battles or a lot of interesting battle mechanics that were not seeing But again all the actual human relationships not just human but some of these interpersonal relationships are are really interesting It's very dark. You've heard that a lot. It's just very dark and it's hard to really get into. What do we have to hang our hat on? You know which which is nothing but sadness and pain for Lyra and will at that right if he's the other child were supposed to be rooting for who what does anyone have? You've and Azriel even as the bad guys are winning. You know. They're not winning each other. Maybe Azriel crosses over. And he crosses over into the middle of Afghanistan in the war all L. darkness. I assume you've just crossed over in some some kind of like war zone. We haven't been in Afghanistan for a long time but the first thing that came to mind right I I don't know what time or place wherein no. I think you have to be so compelled by the plot and that you want to move forward and there's just a lot of talking just in the entire tire season so far yeah and it still. I mean we've asked this question before but it begs the question again. WHO's this made for But I don't know I don't have any other initial thoughts you I I will say this. I WANNA say this right up top. I really really really want to like the show because I enjoyed the source material so much. Yes I think if after all of this child pain basically Roy the murderers the sacrifices that makes you want to not watch the show so much anymore. You should definitely at least try to give it another chance next next season because there is one hundred percent less child killing has again. I remember unless they drastically change. Something the less they they. You look back on this season. And they're like that's what people were in for right. Yeah that's what they were at their demons. The yeah also the whole not being enough demons problem yes spoiler alert is going to be Saul. Is it moving forward yeah. Ra let's raisins. Yeah less less trial pain and I mean there's it's why is there will be child pain but not not that kind. Yeah just be like being chased and stuff you know standard Whatever give it another shot is what I'm saying? Yeah I mean it's wrapping else. If you're enjoying the podcast and our view of it we will be back next season for sure we will yes. It is true confirmed confirmed. We've been green lit for a season. Two so we open on the magisterial preparing their troops. As is Mrs Coulter loads her hand Gannon and we see a quick shot of Azriel doing Aurora math on glass very cool. This is really cool. I love that trace the mountain itself like that has some sort of mathematical purpose Math unless you have an exact topography of the mountain and still Lori is looking at the calculations to which demons can probably do. Math and do math demons can do sex kind of we'll get into our enterprise way heading. Sorry it's good it's good. That's what the people come amongst so the next thing in Lyra fines as real in his lab and she asked why he lied to her about being her father. All these years and She shares her regrets with him and she gets. She gets pretty sick as real style burns in here on him. This is This is really good Report back and Forth Daphne keen is doing and I feel like. She's uniquely talented. Sort of tackle that choice in women is almost us about as your choice and bears was align that Hook me Just sitting upstairs by myself last night and laughing out loud yeah show. Yeah it's like why. Why did you not have a better like why did you do not want to just are you not just compelled to have a better relationship with these young woman? 'cause she's funny. If nothing thing else she has good company charming but again she's she's gone through all the shit and he still can't be bothered to treat her like a human nope not even now human So her his rejection of her causes her to cry and he chastises there for that as well. She rejects his his name in place of her own. Which is Laura Silver Tongue now? She offers him the elite theater but he gives it back to her and he says he never called himself father because he hasn't ever identified as one and she leaves they leave it at that. Yeah definitely he knows he is not father material even if he wanted to be a father I I don't know that he would have the intestinal fortitude right dad. So maybe it's for the best. Yeah parents who needs them but he does make a good uncle he does have the aloofness of a of an interesting uncle. Yeah like the draw. So so Meyer in the nutcracker. He's magical he's fun and he disappears for most of the time and perfect. But you know the look on his face when when she arrived with Roger and look on his face. I mean a lot of the time tells me that he does love her. But he's actively stifling that which you know which makes me believe that. He's humanizing ways not a sociopath he feels for these people these women in his life that he loves oops but they're always going to be second to whatever he's doing yeah They they give the character as real much better. He just allow more charismatic in the show. He is in the book. Because you don't get to see any of that that caring nece Bray very book. I I have some lines to review toward the end of the episode that this fool will say to Mrs Coulter person who he loved at one point or whatever just straight hateful just rate hateful. Oh that's fun I I have not either. It's good keep it in steep it for a little while longer. Wow okay fine The next scene we see miss colder really taking her rage on her monkey and then mcphail finds her this poor monkey a really it really tests my knowledge of how why interact with myself You know what I mean like is this. Is this the equivalent of like women who are people who hurt themselves when they're causing on you know and there are these moments of strife life. Yeah even in an interior way when you are beating yourself up thinking that you are worthless or Dahmer does not. I'm doing well enough. Is that the equivalent of somebody you know. Putting their fingers in their demands for and just squeezing reap physical manifestation that I relate to you too much again this monkey and Mrs Coulter their performances. So good yeah. She solid ooh So mcphail finds her there and he accuses her of having changed once she met Azriel she used to to be this confident young woman and then she melted in front of them and she accuses him of being envious of her and Azriel is confidence which which true I think seems true on both counts. This fair is kind of a little girl moment but she probably didn't melts because she fell in love. It seems like a very human thing to do to fall in love and have a child and changed by that experience but you know she can serve it right back to them. So then we cut to boreal and fraud pavel going over his as elite theater results and he sees that Grumman found a knife in its Howard surrounded by angels and that Will Perry will lead him to it quite categorically Yep Fraud Pavel does not know that Grumman is not from Lila's world. He doesn't know that he's a dude explorer from a different world. I don't even need us. You know of him at all. He doesn't even know that anybody's been crossing over two different worlds. I don't think yeah 'cause that'd be heresy at least So we know Oh that probably the magisterial improper will not be coming after will but boil boreal says many resources right so it's it's really the opportune moment for boreal to be doing this. Because they're super preoccupied with Israel and going after Iran all that stuff but I can't can you imagine trying to read the The ometer and get knowledge of this other world but also not having knowledge of it at the same time it's all about context right right the answers. It's the whole Oracle thing the answers make sense. If you have the information coming into it that you need to interpret it. Otherwise it's just you're just guessing. Raise his words and fraud. Pavel's really experience in this thing because he's read all the text it and he knows exactly what the signs mean so unequivocally categorically they mean what they mean by. He doesn't understand himself right MM-HMM so then we see borrowed and Azriel a back at the lab. He asked about a brush for liars. Teeth and Israel says it won't be necessary because they have a bigger enemy A bigger enemy than ginger Vitus. I can't imagine one. The enemy I know don't know enough about dentistry. was going to make a joke. Not that smart. Be Enemies Plaque really PLA- I. I think that other worlds can wait. Yes borrowed agrees to protect LYRA. It's Thawra World Board. I keep calling once these nonsensical words into Google Docs enough and starts to autocorrect thorold. Thorold sorry y'all boreal and thorold if they they in a child we call it boiled Thorold agrees protect Lyra but once Azriel to say goodbye to her first And he will not the bigger enemy who refers to seems to be the other side of that the Aurora he seems seems to be referring to the authority which is the church's way of saying God. Yeah so basically wants to fight God get all the answers from him. I mean why not sure who else doing well to guarantee is that we have this one life so I say fight God every chance you get the opportunity yeah Authority has really dug his own grave here because his insistence on having Azriel say goodbye to Lyra is also the perfect opportunity to separate operate the two so that Roger can be stolen away yet strew. I don't I don't really know what to make the stored character as victim circumstance uh-huh stance. He's not really he knows working for he is also he's just as complicit as the people in the facility and Bolanger as the nurses bright exactly so just because he happens to think that a kid should brush their teeth at night and say goodbye to their father before he fucking leaves forever doesn't magically make him a great guy right yeah yeah So in the next scene gene Lyra and pan are in the bath in Pan. Tries to convince Lyra there. Okay Roger comes in backwards her acutely Respectfully and tells Lyra that hurts ad looked at him like he was a cartoon wolf and it was creepy and we know about cartoons. Good question excellent question. That's interesting. I don't know we've seen video video in this world. No you're right. Yeah I've seen like cartoon maps being drawn or not cartoon but like hand-drawn maps being drawn. But it's it's not intimation now. Rogers have accessed in newspapers. And things like that fucking looney tunes. No he does not always political cartoons like a wolf from a political cartoon. Well okay so there's another person that traveling between worlds world we just discovered but doesn't matter he's dead now we'll never get the answer to that Roger Tells Lyra that parents are more trouble than they're worth and let's pretend to be orphans together and Oh my God wonderful. I can't imagine being a person watching the show that has oh a really great relationship with your parents in the church. Things like that That kind of person would necessarily want to watch show like this exact. That's what I'm wondering when you make a show like this. Are there any people out there that have had this kind of perfect upbringing in our voyeuristic and are interested in what you know people with really troublesome upbringings or like or is this just a complete turn off like this is unrealistic. There's no way anyone who never reject their kids. It's like this. Yeah just curiosity would be interesting to know And the other thing about this is like I. I don't know how you felt when you were a kid reading these books. But I felt this very much when I was reading Harry Potter. For instance or any other kind of Waie thing because why things. Things don't exist without some sort of serious conflict and that's usually a loss of paranoid both or some other kind of traumatic thing right but I yeah identified with without a lot and you couldn't have a sort of escape was reading and in in being in part of these worlds where you could dream of something bigger and better but also I'm not magic. Yeah and the your letters never gonNa never special. I'm not chosen for anything and just I just saw can have great parents so it's We need more Mundane Roya. I think I think that would be good. To See people overcoming the circumstances stances that they were dragged into but without waving a magic Wanda or reading an elite theater. or Roy. Insert other thing here. Yeah Yeah Yeah I can see portal. Yeah Oh my God Puerto Fantasy Oh yes loved the world situation a whole fuck if this world right there. Maybe the grass is greener somewhere. Well that's not US whenever no except for this magic magic podcast who created together so boreal and the pill faced manner. Talking over Thomas's body I've to issue a small correction here. I thought the Paleface man was Thomas. The red headed guy in previous episodes but apparently the paleface man is that he doesn't have a name. Thomas was the red headed guy who's dead boil tasks him with getting rid of the boy or the body rather and finding the boy Eh and it's interesting that if you can't trust them this far the most important things yes to now you're gonNa Trust them with Yeah Yeah you'd think you'd be able to call in favors elsewhere because the student botched so badly right. But as we find out when he starts speaking into his police Scanner dudes a fucking dirty cop. Of course he is explains the muscle actual copies at cop or things handing Holy Shit upped the the the mustache. It's it was right there in front of us the whole time all the mustache the ship. No sorry I not all cops are like this laughing laughing you know. Some stereotypes exist for reason Yes if what that guy fuck that guy that guy dirty cops fuck people user thirty to hurt other people s so as as a dirty Cobb puts out an AP for Wilt Berries Likeness I'm Barbara and Roger are playing in their Philo or pillow. Fort and eating sandwiches and Roger comes up with the idea to ask the elite the commoner. How true as real really is what he really feels right and she doesn't do that she does not she just chooses not to for some reason? Yeah I kind of respect but also an incredulous about the theater and its use in this series. I get see her using it more often and getting kind of mixed results like fraud. Pablo got tower with angels You there's something she doesn't quite understand like the way she was led to find Billy Casa's body ripe but it's it's it's convenient the times when she doesn't it was like maybe if they made it kind of draining on her yeah something. She can't use often. Just really be selective about win. And how and what questions she asks of it. Yeah if she had daily charges when she used them up she couldn't use more exotic. Yeah no it's It is really difficult to introduce this device that can basically basically tell you exactly what you want to know about literally anything and just have that be there all the time like a loaded gun alert. Chekhov's dust meter thing. Yeah like Mrs Goals Hand Cannon. She's loaning it back never comes comes back in the final episode it but only because we use it to identify thus a woman that's approaching Azriel at the end. I guess like we see the gun. Byner back in like Oh. That's Oh oh well. They just immediately told us who it was that that might have been used to that. I didn't pick up on that there. You go the gun was used to kill Benjamin Roy Sir Sir. Yeah so why even bring it back. I think you're right. I think just as immediate means of identification or. Maybe they wanted us to think for a second. There should actually channel killer on So Lion Roger have a really sweet moment together where they appreciate the change they made to each others lives more adorable. Hugs sweet little and then they burst out into a rendition of little orphan. Annie's he's tomorrow tougher. Share you're going to go for a cat's thing was waiting for it. I was waiting to not I. Just choose to deploy something something telecom. She's my jellicoe times for the jellicoe references. I'm glad that Liar. I got this. This one little very nice moment went with her very good friend before he's gone forever. There's something at least this in this encampment. Someone made in a campaign in the living room. Encampment where I'm jumping ahead. I'm sorry I wasn't got a reference that later That specific line. But that's really you know I cannot let shit slide. And there's something in me that like the person who cannot really really separate the art from the artist in very small way where I see that. LYRA or Daphne canes actual father is the one that delivers that line and just I don't know it seems to me some kind of encampment. You imagine just like recycling those lines at home together. Laura Daphne yeah go clean your room. There's some kind of encampment in their kind of fan fiction. Ira In my head and so much more wholesome than it usually relations uh-huh yeah. It's a really mixed bag in there. There's no in between so there's just extremist Speaking of blanket forts we get to see Azriel Straight Karimun into a blanket for it is awake Lyra for a little midnight chat. Yeah he comes and collects Lyra and what we now know is. He's just a diversionary tactic wall. Boral thorold collects Roger He tells as our Azriel Israel tells Lyra that the majesty is afraid of dust because they are afraid of his actual physical sin which we keep hearing. This is like the fifth time that we've heard I get it. It's original sin you get away but just in case you weren't clear. Let's recount that Bible story there. Yeah they have original Elson in this universe but eve had a demon and instead of were enclosed the demons settled into its final form when she bit into the Apple Right. Yeah this was a really cool world appropriate retelling of genesis three. I liked it. Yeah the Bible Genesis Three. I don't know I hope I I specifying book called Genesis Three. You know what it's actually pretty cool title for book. Yeah it really is. I play the shit out of that game genesis three. It's really cool Would it just be spore though. Oh Yeah I don't. I don't think I can lose any say in this year of our Lord Twenty almost almost twenty twenty almost twenty So as real as discovery the dust is measurable in its science not evil or sin and Azriel learns that from Lyra that coulter stopped Lila's demon from being cut which seems shocking to him like he knew that there would be a time when Lara's demon was almost cut from her and then it was equally was also surprised that coulter would stop apart from happening. He was surprised that she was exhibiting any kind of maternal instinct even though she repeatedly seemed like a really poignant question for him to say do they they try to cut your demon from you. Yeah I mean she was in Bollinger so it kind of makes sense. I guess he didn't have that okay. Yeah yeah we're missing scenes like a vine borer missing the scenes where he gets all the nitty gritty details out of her So it's a lot of assumptions As real plans on traveling between the world's to find out what dust is and to find the source visa sources in this world. The source isn't the rifts in places themselves it seems to be coming from one maybe one source maybe the Authority Authority He's here at least we'll see we'll see what his actual fucking aim is later on here. Here he's trying to say that he just wants to wants to do a little quick Cuna with God. She'll ask him what is the meaning of the life the the universe and everything is it forty two. I will be very angry. If justice forty two little I already know hitchhiker's guide for everyone your nerds words. You knew she didn't have to explain that to know but I want I wanNA make people who didn't know think that I'm the stupid one for having this air. That's very very insert. But yeah he He's the authorities so in the true blood. University Authority take played by Christopher Maloney. So that'd be that'd be great if they could bring that back James mcevoy's go head to head with Christopher Maloney as the Authority authority. You heard it here first call now yep But he also says that he was glad to see her come and is she is a product of something extraordinary. Of course she is like A. We've seen on our own that it Mrs Coulter and Azriel incredible minds. Incredible confidence and assertiveness. They're incredible people. Yeah so I mean. And we've already seen that Lyra is something to behold herself. She can hold her own in a verbal matt or you know sparring match with Azriel and coulter bone her best. One of her best friends is the king of the Panzer. Panzer Bjorn. Yeah it's not nothing. Yup She's got aaronow friends in which friends and Panzer Bjorn friendships inference. Just lifetime friends. Yeah this girl. She's forgotten about all then of course but of of course she technically how they got to Bolinger so just right Yash. Isn't it anymore so she goes back to sleep in a chair. which does make make sense watching the Aurora I think exactly washing the Aurora? She settling into the chair. She's thinking about the confrontation she had with her father So that's really believable. Way To separate those two further in case were one era. What point Roger was snuck out? Yeah and quick. Cut of Mrs Coulter. Being within sight of the same Aurora that liar is falling asleep to the edges the very edges of her face are are outlined. Signed by that kind of greenish light. Beautiful Shot so good. I mean especially with like these entire scenes with Azriel naira speaking speaking with the shifting colors. Yeah really good fairy dance party. Yeah love it. Yes I calm I would be really interested to see. See any behind the scenes like aside from what linneman wells imposing on twitter. I would love to watch some of the making of these The show because it seems really interesting. Yeah does I'd love to know how the I mean. We know how they got the bears. Just this guy the actual actor running bear head but some of the other things has got to be really interesting. The construction of US mountain set. Yeah did you the hand-build that stuff. Yeah boreal checks in with the Pale man in our world and he talks to snake about the tower of angels and the legends so the Tower of angels is a thing and there are legends and prophecies which we've already known own but he's now giving credence to In will periods on a bus to somewhere BUSTA somewhere. Who knows? Does he have a specific location in mind difficult. Say I don't know that was one thing I kind of yet. Now's a good a time as any okay. It was one thing I was really wondering in this episode. I figured it failed to show us or explain it to us in any meaningful way. How he ended up where he ended up? Yeah I was doing you know now. I was having some shower thoughts this morning and I was trying to work out. What the fuck is going on in this young man's mind you kill on accident a home intruder? That's that's so easily played off to the please. I'm not even played off. It's easily explainable to the police. This man is in my home. I have some boxing training so yes I could hold my own and I accidentally pushed him over the railing and he died can give you maybe a little bit of insight into that Because of the very specific type of upbringing I had I learned to fear even the idea of CPS. I don't know what the British equivalent of that is. Yes that's what I was GONNA get to. Yeah yeah that's so. That fear is so deep whenever you have a troubled parent just. I don't think his mom would be like this but I have known people in my lifetime who anytime. There's even a little bit of bad behavior or something. The threat is that. CPS will come and take in a foster home. I'm in bad things will happen to you So yeah better do everything. You can't avoid eva running from the law to kill it. Yeah I mean those are I guess because I thought maybe will was a little bit more sensible and realistic than that. That's a plausible reason to have killed a man but also what's the alternative that the police eventually maybe neighbors go to check on you and you and your mom aren't home but from the entry doorway you can see dead man in the hallway. Alway your mom's going to be. I mean the gym teacher. The boxing coach is going to keep her forever. Eventually he's going to go to the authorities right right and because he can't take care of this person he's really ill equipped to take care of by himself. I don't know it's it's again. It's how old is well. Thirteen to fifteen. He's twelve. I think really. He's not even. Yeah he's I think he's supposed to be twelve the same age as Lyra. Okay he looks older but aeneas because he's tall well yeah I mean he's super mature to take care of an adult mother in middle school already. Yeah assery highschool about that is he. Looks Freshman Age to me. But if he's thirteen or Dan if he's well I know I keep saying thirteen. That's just a made up number that I came up with. It's the age that a person becomes a teenager. I don't know it's when a Jewish boy becomes a man for sure is a right right involved with all of that so IRA wakes up when she hears thorold loudly packing and he says oh good. You're awake we gotta go because the Magister Eum is is on its way and she sees as real on Roger Gone and fingers out quickly. That Roger is going to be used for Israel's purposes Yeah we didn't mentioned it but he he straight up said there's a burst of energy whenever persons separated finger demon so yeah and it seems like one of those things that I think Lyra new you in the very back of her mind was always there she just needed this kind of catalyst to unlock it and she did immediately so it's really believable. That she you jump to that conclusion and she runs outside and calls for your Iq and this scene kind of got me teared up because you're because they're immediately and he's got bears. Yes yes not just one or two. He's got bears in reserve. who were there ready to back her up there is a problem is right there yes all of it hard right not to love somebody like that? Yeah so it makes me kind of regretful. Though we spent any time at all establishing a relationship between LYRA and lease score is is be when Yorick was obviously the more important relationship. But we'll get to that it's very human centric Then then we so for the rest of the episode. We're going to do quick cuts back and forth. I might consolidate later on those cuts. Yeah it's fine. It's I mean they're basically physically. It is Lyra making her way up mountain break and will making his way to an unspecified location had in mice. He's worth going So as real and Roger are traveling through the pass and style Mario Watches over them. So this scene is especially creepy. Because because they're on their way up Roger is I mean. He's still young boys so he's very naive in what's happening. We know that he believes there. Some sort of surprise for Lyra in weight Buck wild the top of the fucking mountain. Yeah kid there's the surprise of their sure right Alex who would think like you know. Even though he's a bad dad he wouldn't kill me and that's that's kind of like a motives. I rent there in my own head. He's a bad dad but he wouldn't like kill out kid kid do that. Bove anger liar is so great and he has he create half created Lyra. How could he be right? A kid killer exactly. He may accept accepted them. He made them food made them let them make a blanket for even more heartbreaking. But somaria doing this like snow. Leopard bird watching over routine is so terrifying. Because you know that Roger at any point decides that he's made he's regained his faculties and and he's ready to run. You Know Sell Mary. She's GonNa Pass on his demon and solve them. I also think he's probably having her prowl. So that Roger can't See what's up more. It's too late. Yeah just the just. The threat of a threat is enough to stop people So we we see the majesty and float directly up to as Israel's lab and blast their way in Mrs Coulter searches. The lab dismisses Mrs All of the other people as soon as they realize that. There's no one. Actually there sees azriel window. Calculations checks telescope. She's there she knows what he's doing doing a thorough knocks out macphail and takes aim at coulter however she speaks to his humanity enough that she allows him to escape which is funny that she allows a man holding a gun at her face to escape and that it just speaks to the power of Cultures Influence So she pursues Azra on her own. I have questions about about how the colts are actually got there because it took it took a trek on foot for Azriel in Roger Her to make it up to the top of the mountain mountain with multiple hours. I it's gotta be hours of advance. Progress from the bears is running full speed after them right so they've got that much of a advance. I wonder how coulter got there. My without seeing a balloon pull directly up I was going to. Consumption is the balloons. I mean. They already knew the majesty as their right like they. They're not hiding anymore. There's a balloon in the mountains. You're GONNA see a balloon in the mountain right. I feel like Cammisa. Coulter is also trying to do this secret. Double sides game like she can't have a operator can't just take one go to. That's a that's a fair point right as mcphail is the only person who would really give her away to the major cerium unless you get a bunch of lackeys Operating in a balloon to get her there. Faster right but as sorry at Santan. Cleveland's adorable that you know as a propulsion system that isn't witches so Exactly exactly how did she get there. So fucking fast and secretly. That's a good question. I just assumed that she hopped a Zeppelin but yeah but also she still trying to keep it. She's trying to keep a secret speaker as Israel is. Yeah it's very secret mission that she manages to keep secret. I have a question about mcphail's demon does he. Evelyn he should he should. I just realized in this scene that he doesn't have a visible one. One idea. Everyone should have one right. Yeah I don't remember what his is is his a snake to exactly exactly Alexis. That's the crux of the problem. Here Havel's is like some kind of some kind of bug dragonflies. Yeah he had something flying but yeah where are the demons. I think so we go to will and a cafe. You know desperately refreshing. The News on BBC leave course to see if I assume presumably. He's looking for news of dead body found an apartment or a home. That doesn't have anybody to speak for it. And there's no sign of anything like that so he keeps moving Pretty Clever of him he you you know the COP had no reason even be looking for him but just in case. Let's let's get the hell out of here. Yeah for sure Quick cuts you as real making it to the top of the mountain and powering up a generator wall Roger Asks. Where's the surprise release Something that requires the generator is a surprise. And so it's a giant inflatable polar bear at the top of this mountain. It's great she'll love. It is so good full of Christmas lights. I don't know where this is dead. It's Bari's dream car The bears are in hot pursuit Can we talk about differences differences between the book and the show here. uh-huh okay so they see the magisterial approaching the bears do and they open. 'em opens fire with their cannons at the bears and the bears is prepare the prepare the fire hurlers yet There are skydivers from the magisterial that also conveniently all all have bird demons and this is a really cool shot so I don't want to detract from that. The shot of them separating from the shoulders of the skydivers time in the bird's bird's doing this like dive bomb thing so cool but also you've all got bird demons to for fuxing honestly. It was a little bit confusing for me for a second there. I thought they were that which is had shown up. Because they're demons are always bird demons. Yeah so for like two seconds. I was not sure what the fuck fuck was going on multiple times because I thought for a second that when they dove out they were turning into birds and I was like yes. Assume he's wanted but yeah I mean it's just like when you're fifteen or whatever age that your demons shuttles. Are you really sure that you know what you WANNA do with the rest of your life. You're going to be a sky diver for the rest of your life kitchen forever or consider this what your demons settles as instead influencing your career choices. I know but that's unrealistic because a lot of adult humans Change careers three or four times in our life and to be that shore of what you're going to be when you're in puberty For the rest of your life seems like a really unfair fair way to live your life like yeah I mean it's possible that if you're fifteen in your demons settles Labrador retriever. You're GonNa be just a house servant serving for the rest of your life like Mr Carson Down Abby like that is your life calling and always will be like my husband Erin. Wanted to be a computer programmer from the time. He was really really young and programming. Computers was very new technology and he just learned with it and that's what he always wanted to do right but but he's also changed his career so I don't know what comes first. That's true. I think career that the the egg big a piff. Unie sure we've talked before I think about the reference that has been made in the book There was a guy who his demon settled as a dolphin so he was basically cursed to be on the in the ocean of such such should be on the ocean all the time. US One of my favorite stories is that you know that guy or from the book that I read is that guy. He had that same that that same sort of like sadness that Fodder Corum has about soften axe sapphire necks. Soften ax is that you know this is great. This is who I am but sometimes I just wish it to be different and can very limiting to be the person you are. Yeah this is true this is relatable. Yeah and I I this is last. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA say it this season uh-huh but I think that like with Mrs Coulter in her monkey is a great example of A mental illness. Maybe a bipolar disease. Or some I'm kind of You know self harming type of thing and I think that's a great metaphor for that and I think that Lyra and Pan every time they have interactions and is so great because you can see the dichotomy economy of your own mind saying like well. I'm scared but I'm going to do this but I'm so scared but I'm going to do this. That's great. That's something realistic that we can all identify with and it seems like there's just a lot left on the table when you have such incredible credible concepts in such beautiful scenery that you can export with strew. Well you're not picking La. They're not picking any lanes spoiler alert. Maybe they didn't pick Elaine. Because they don't have to pickling next season or the season after that just say the my hurt at them. We've got some feedback that have opinions. It's true S- anyway. Let's not digress. Any further Alexis. Listen if you didn't come here for four digressions than what are you here for. What are you here for? Are you here for content. Are you here to hear to hear a review of this show. That's weird. I don't WanNa make up your own opinion. Just hear US talk about bullshit. Fuck they say fuck a lot. I'm so sorry again. We don't know who our audiences either we're just we have the same audience. HBO Dozen. That's like and I can tell you what we're not gonNA have sachs or be violent on air. Yes so that's a bald move guarantee promise so the barriers are in the same scene. The bears are under fire and one dies right in front of Lyra so sad so sad. Yeah and he. He takes a tumble U.. Mass behind him. I kind of noticed that they're also using the same style of armor. That York was before he left. Or Yeah Okay Yeah See. Add the question that whether or not their armor was like handmade in their own personal personal taste taste and style or if it was uniformed whoever the current king is. They're all different but saves a lot of money if they all just look the same name also saving a lot of money is using the same trick of Lyra being absolutely horrified by the violence going around her going on around her to not show the rest of the violence. All you have to do. There is showing icy wall. Basically playing off of her face and this one this part for me yeah. This one wants a little bit better because they describe the fire hurlers There but yeah exactly. I'm not they. They don't show us. What mechanism triggers a fire? Hurler how it even works. They all like balls of malls cocktails. They have leather pouches. They're seeing who knows house. It's for us to decide that this one works a little bit better because you can see in a blurry background that one of them takes down was the word you used blimp. I said dirigible dirigible takes on a dirigible. Crashes in front of her and this is very he is very visceral for her to be experiencing and feeling these a war and also like she may have thought that she was passed this she mentioned and she mentioned earlier in the episode that she's she is feeling like she has done with this. She has done her job she just wants to go home and but once again she finds herself in the middle of really horrific. She's planning on just going to save Roger from something something that she can't even admit to her self is happening. There's there's no way she's going to tell herself that. Roger is going to be cut from his demon at the top of certain. She just knows that there's something afoot right and and now there's battles broken out and things are becoming really real So this works law for me. Except that I could've could've used a lot more battle scenes and actual things happening Roger sees the battle unfolding below that these magisterial balloons are firing at the at the bears and unfortunately it is given Azriel a little bit more time to work because the they're not focusing the attention where it should be Because Mrs Coulter has diverted that attention I assume she sent them after the bears and not after the real action Them as real snatches rodger up and locked him in the cutting cage and we. We all know it's coming now says the worst fucking or one of the worst lines over. I'm sorry this is happening to you. Know I'm sorry that I have to do this to you. It's I'm sorry. The outside forces are acting upon your life and you shouldn't making friends made friends with some other kind of rich or fan at the College College. Some other intensely charismatic human as a woman identified with that a lot. I'm sorry this is happening to you. So LYRA and York reach an impasse and literal impasse here where he can't cross ice bridge and she can with her demon and they say their goodbyes and thank yous so sweet. Because I'm on the nose. Oh Yeah Dundee this to real polar polar bears. They will destroy you daily face but you know. Let them if I saw a polar bear still do the same thing. I guess. It's No van. It would kill me gently. Malaya death gently gently inside so as thrill apologizes to Roger. Thanks him for a sacrifice. LYRA climbs up the cliff. Face as PAN is scouting out. He's switches through super scout out. He he she. They both see them at the top as real hand cuts rogers demon away. Yes wires approaching the most rusty. This is not the same decision of no cell Celia deserve. You've dissolves into dust. He poofs like she she poofs like a little dusty balloon and for some reason the way that they did that made it so much more effective than other demon poof. Things that we've seen this has to be rough. Okay so this is the part where I want to talk about. Differences between book and Show uh-huh. It's a big difference here. Yeah so I mean. This isn't really a book versus show difference but it seems like Azriel hand cutting. This team away causes Roger in Sao Sylla's death instead of just an actual separation and it also caused some sort of burst. The Blue Lyra Mountain Lyra and Roger. have this really sweet moment of goodbye right here She kept her promise that she would be there with him. Always and he dies in the same moment. Why did this cutting cause his death because says it was so violent and we know this like pro technology? That bowl of anger has improved upon. Yeah we get the we get the sense that Azriel all made this machine that do this thing and said that's good enough doesn't matter what happens to the kid after Roy interesting because His Majesty Room has been shown island to be or portrayed to be able force yes they were doing this thing on mass but they are also improving the technology as they went and Azriel got the the the minimum viable product right and stopped there right. Oh it immediately killed him or his emo- or is it more more powerful of us the pro technology that just like Kudzu Kit Violin. You get a bigger burst of dust or dust energy and you say the energy it's very. I'm very confused at US And he just capitalize on that technology and it makes it so much worse. I I think to watch the show versus reading the books whenever you know that there are different ways to get into other worlds. You don't have to do this. This violent thing that he's doing that he's been trying to do through this whole season boreal. He could've just found a window but he didn't kill anyone to think. Well I don't think not not himself. Now he's menaced. Many people are. Oh no no yes. killed a woman he did. He squished moth. That's right yeah so you yeah but not to open a portal note just a so Azriel opens the portal of all fucking bortles. When he doesn't is beautiful? Yeah Oh pretty so. The portal opens as everyone the bear fights and the magister invites. You can see from their vantage point that everyone's looking onto this incredible opening Culture Finds Azriel the doorway. She's got the gun behind back so we recognize that it's coulter her because the gun does not wanNA become a threat to you as real She tries to stop him from going through the other world because she has really bought into into this magisterial crap We don't know the person she was before route. You know the person she is now I guess she still loves him. Still wants to work on behalf of the Majesty Him who have shut her out from everything now. They didn't shut her out before when she had power but she lost everything we do to the explosions and you know her failures. So she's still she's still wants to stick around for a daughter So she says yeah yeah she tries to rejected at first and he draws her forward because the matt or the Sun Life from this other world on her face is extraordinary just feeling the heat from a new place has got to have some sort of draw to it He asks her to come with him. He explains his whole thing which now we see not only does he want to have a conversation nation with God but he wants to be God basically I mean you could definitely interpreted that way. He is rightly wants to set himself. A New Republic of Heaven via authorities. Authorities is an interesting term because we can quickly as us in our present day. We can make a distinction between in that in the authority is something that is to be feared and also revered and respected at the same time right but if you call it God it's it's something else. The Authority is something that he can surp- usurp he can become God himself the authority himself. What what is the authority? Where is it? I don't know I was gonNA find I know I know I won't say so during the scene where. They're kind of like consoling consoling each other and having this Coming together again. They're demons nuzzle each other and kiss really really going for the rub so so Mara and this monkey still has its own needs I think the very human pathological avalon type of needs that. She's repressing who's demon is still still living out. And she's too distracted to hit him right. He's actually I mean it sounds like really hot sex so they have this sort of for poor. When they're having the demons have sex separately like in a different place at the same time while humans having sex raskin the real hard hitting questions here are bald move? Yeah I grab it like in detail for me. I don't know what the actual function is. I know the demons do are physically close while people are having having sex if you must know dirty birds That's right drink out of your Java. I'm one of those words dirty birds. Can you talk a little bit more slowly. Then just tell me in detail how the sex works at the end. If I don't come you'll try and destroy Roy. Me Terrible segue no okay so okay okay. Every detail of the series has tried to at least a little bit rehabilitate as real Is he a right. Bastard checks he it was awful. He speaks so disrespectful to everybody and I would like to read a little section here. This is what he said to her. This is what Israel said to coulter to coulter in the book when she is whole thing kind of like played out this kind of the same way they married just the demons are are instead of gently rubbing against each other. They're like lightly scratching each other. Yes yes and one point still. Mari actually like has her hazar teeth. He's kind of in the Monkey. Really yes splash. And when Mrs Coulter says Miss Coulter says that she basically intimate says she maybe he doesn't WanNa come. She says to him. If I don't come you'll try and destroy me and he this Absolutely terrible person says to her. Why should I want to destroy you? Come with me work with me and I'll care whether you live or die. Stay here and you lose my interest interest at once. Don't flatter yourself that I'd give you a second thought. Now stay and work your mischief in this world or come with me That is how he spoke to. This woman And that's kind of how he speaks to everybody in the books. Yeah so like super fucking. Don't fuck him but Flynn yeah fuck him he. Yeah I mean I. I think that if as long as your interests are aligned will be your truest friend but the second. They're not then. You're wondering what truce ran in really means. Yep that's how she managed to get four old not shoot her earlier is saying basically as real is terrible to the people who work Eric for him And the Aspen So in the scene coulter remembers that Their child is in this world. And that's what matters most now. She says she says and she wants to stay with Lyra. Wherever LYRA is in Azriel crosses over he takes one long look at coulter she walks away and then forget sirmium when he turns around? Don't you just like a just like a child can't see it anymore. It doesn't exist. Yup exactly that's a shiny object but here's a new Shinier one. Look at this one. It is made of Rainbow. Fred's it's amazing. This one can make me God so we go back to our world and willpower is walk in the street in organically kind of okay. So this is the this is where I'm going to. Sort of just like lumped together. The Ns not going to go back and forth. So we'll fair. Yeah Well Perry rather sorry. Walk in the street organically finds a place that boreal uses the travel between worlds Well Murray meets a cat hat in the courtyard and it shows them through gates to the portal So he just got out. I assume you just got off on the bus in the area where boreal uses. That's higher boreal parks his car. That's not it's not. The Portal editorial uses. The Portola. BOREAL uses is inside a greenhouse. I I thought there was like this. v-shaped place this quiz Tesla's parked over here and then there's like gateway Gate fence that boreal uses jumped through. That's not the place. What no not the same place? And that's an important distinction for season. Two all right right. Yeah no because it clearly shows that same be shaved different. argh there's a different door. Yeah but the only reason we ever saw that v-shaped park was because that was where boreal parked parked his car. That is not where boreal cross through. This may be another door that he doesn't know about or maybe doesn't know about it but I can tell you that it doesn't go to the places. The place goes all right. Well the other door goes the show. The show is is telling me something different. I think I wish that they had shown that doorway literally anywhere else does the fact that they are showing in a place that we've seen boreal oriole multiple times it would or maybe they're doing it on purpose. Actually I think about it. They're trying to be sneaky. They want you to think it's the same doorway although maybe even though story oy yesterday like walk up some stairs to get to the doorway our guy in its inside this overgrown conservatory sort of place. But this is literally just behind shed so that all right well this cat this mysterious cat which is not the same cat that lived with Willpower Perry in his house nashes astray different cash. Showing him the way the cat go through with him I think he did. Yes okay went through I and he. They didn't show this very well but he saw the cat go through and he thought Oh. That's weird went to okay This other scene back in our our world but in Liars World Coulter it leaves And LYRA was woken up enough to know that she needs to hide from Mrs Coulter. LYRA finds Roger's body in the top of the mountain and she apologizes and says goodbye. This is such a hard thing I've been in this place you've been in this place. I'm sure we all have like something. Bad has happened. It's our fault but it's not our fault but it's our fault and it's actions you can't reverse but at something. She's the Bush forever more. I guess because she wanted her friends the company on this journey myron pan in this moment. Make a plan to crossover and find the dust and the source of it before Azriel real does because that's maybe it's not maybe it's not whatever Azriel thinks he can take to use to his advantage. Maybe it's something that needs protecting. And they have to leave Roger there and the ice in the book they say to each other if the magisterial is so convinced if they thank dust is bad in their bed. It must be good. Maybe dust is a force of good in the world instead of bad right and and they decide to go through so then in our final shot of the season Pan and Lyra era cross over into our world and will crosses over into her world. Why are you thinking that? Because he Found a doorway. And he's he's in the two thousand nineteen our world and he walked in and then Pan Lyra walked through the mountain doorway. They didn't show anything after that. No they just showed her walking in a white space era. Johnson's there jumping into each other's worlds. Just based based on what boreal is ninety. That's what the show want you to think. Yeah Yeah that's what I'm getting out of it. It just seems like they're crossing opposite of each other. Yeah but now. There's one difference from the book that I want to point out here. Israel did not have his own decision device in the book. What what happened was Lyra Lyra gets to the top of the mountain? She grabs Roger and tries to run away with him. They start slipping down the the face of the mountain. Basically and as real grabs or I think so. Mario grabs saw Celia Rogers Demon and LYRA tries rise to grab Roger but her hand slips and Y'all's and that because the that people can't go oh very far away from their demons and when they do it hurts It's the same thing it's that separation is very violent so that causes the same energy thought. It was interesting that they changed that. But you know what they did not do the work beforehand to make us understand that someone falling away from their team would do that. So that's why they had to make this. Uh that's why man to change that. I guess there's no reason. Why separating for your dementia cause death until I mean from this indecision machine I mean and vulgar they? Do it often with mixed results. Yeah I guess yeah I guess I do kill lally they do it slowly with a lot of energy. Yeah but anytime it has done quickly and without any any assistance or executing people especially. It's super violent like falling off cliffs or anything like that or being just being in a machine experimental machine that just this testing things out. I can say this is may be fun for people who've read all the books the and maybe they already know this but just in case the edge of the blade is made out of basically the same stuff as the edge of the subtle knife. And maybe you don't know what that is yet and that's okay but I will say they're made of the same thing so I wouldn't consider spoiler right now because they've made mention of the knife in a tower. Yeah it's the subtle knife It's what the but the second book is named after sudden life The Night uh-huh knief destiny Mary Abbott. That's that's the episode Nets Garay. No I watched watch through all the damn credits. Just in case there would be something and there was nothing. How often did you wash the opening credits? Always always I like it kind of sets the tone for me. I do it with all. The big show's all well. All the big shows that I like the song's opening credits do with Westworld do with I did it with game of thrones. Oh yeah no it's cool. It just gets me in the head space for that universe. Yeah yeah that makes sense. Give her there also was constantly changing too. Yeah that was clockwork. Things outlander which I'm kind of embarrassed to enjoy as much as I do thou lender series by interest There is a lot of problematic. Shed the happens. There's a lot of rape a lot of rape cool and there's a lot of like romance fun historical set pieces but so much rape and there's enough that it just it makes me really question my morals and how I enjoy. TV and like what they're trying to get away with. It makes you think a little bit more rigorously than you want to. And as women and people of this universe. I think that's something that you and I don't want to have to think about all the time but it's done her in an interesting I don't know I can't defend it right now. That's the reason why it's problematic for me as I'm not prepared to defend it on air. And what they do and how they get away with within any of those things. It's only needs a deeper reflective thing to look at but it's also one of the most popular like a Roddick type type of romance novels that have ever sold So it's interesting in that way. But Jesus Christ Anisi is especially bad I think at Ya. Aw that's fantasy loves rape. It's one of the things I love. The most about the expanse is that there are there are stakes and women are involved in stakes very often. But yeah it's not sexual. It's not it's not a body violating kind of thing. Right is all as people being terrible. And other way. Yes I I would be represented in in a way that sound like Oh our bodies as being taken away how more vying the show we lived through every day right like we just talked about our experiences over the weekend. It's fucked up because as it happens so often so frequently that you don't WanNa be reminded of it but when it does happen it's nice to see a meaningful purposeful way because that's all you want some purposes in bullshit. We lived through all the time. Sure Yeah I can go on for days about that Yeah that's that's his dark materials season one in a season. One I have. I have two questions for you. Wore is not very important one could be fairly important or guy I think it is important to kind of in campus in this way What do you think that season two could do to improve uh upon the failings of season one for you so some of the failings of season one that I've noticed are one? They're really gun shy about the battles roles which are super interesting and like the way the second battle with the fire hurlers all that show that played out a little bit better than the first bear fight which was so hyped up for us I think Lin Manuel was not a great choice. I love Lin. Manuel Manuel Miranda. Likes may not be enough enough exactly actor. Yeah griswold enough. Yeah there's there's something about that doesn't work for me even though I love him and I love him in this role all is love him like in this role opposite of or separate from like actual anything. That's happening I. I feel like there are some things that didn't really pan out like there was no real connection to me with will Perry I understand that he is a prophesied child. eld I understand that. He feels at a very young age responsible for his mother who is unstable but as far as the story and our our fantasy world goes. There's no reason to care about him. It seems like just a distraction or way to cut up the action. Yeah they're literally just setting up events for the rest of the series because he is very much right like he's a he's a CO protagonist and the rest of the series. I'll go so far as to say yeah that's true. Then maybe some. Maybe some scenes is set up some sort of relationship with him and his parents. I mean I know. His mom is unstable. So it's not really a way to make real emotional reaction because you know that's it's it's it's tenuous And you know. Just based on her moods are how You know how President Xi is on any any given day. We've got exactly one interview of his father. The boreal on him watched maybe some videos of them. Playing children earn earn enough of him as a child. So you know there's some sort of connection these holding onto you but if will thirteen than he never knew his father so so maybe maybe some scenes of him reading the letters from his father and understanding what he was working on. And what's important to him and he's got a purpose to be driven forward but right now. He's on the run from a very explainable murder. In that everything that's happening. There just seems like it was shoehorned. NC could quickly get to where they're going to start season two. Yeah they're definitely trying to have some built in characterization sation for him so we know based on his actions that he is pretty responsible for a twelve year old. I would say very responsible He is maybe dutiful is a good one. He's very beautiful he's carrying is not. You can stand up for himself. You can take a hit. We know that feels like are you saying in that we wanted this. I seen him in. Yeah yeah he taught doing that and then holding his own against his robber. Who didn't well? You got one punch in and but you know he's he's just he's got the sense of propriety that's interesting but also we have no no reason to be invested in this character at all besides this promise of the future and so I was GonNa say if you don't know that he is going to play such a big part in the rest of the story. It is probably pretty weird to see because they are literally just setting up that this is a kid who is good for adventures cheers basically says another another child. You can probably hold his own in a world of fantasy and intrigue so same question back to you. So what did you like about season one. What do you think they could do better to set up season two? Or what are you hoping to see in season two. I am really looking forward to I will. I will do this as best I can without spoilers lers. I'm looking forward to seeing how they show the different creatures landscapes in the next season I am looking forward to the tone changing a little bit and I think it will the I will say this navy. I won't How's about this? Two characters are going to get together and it will become a more child focused story again which I think might just by its nature. Make it a little bit more fun. WE'RE GONNA get to see some people getting to know each other get to have dust explained a little bit more in a scientific way But it'll be science that we recognize don't be experimental mental theology or whatever it is they call it philosophy experimental philosophy theoretical philosophy. God damnit found it roundabout way. Yeah it seems like As a huge turn off for like for me kind to not know what the hell. Dust is Even though they they did this explanatory scene here I still don't understand and I think that's a problem. I mean the problem and also the the the purpose is that they want to figure out what it is that is kind of the the Ark of this entire first trilogy is finding out what dust is it whether it's good or bad whether it's worth whether needs protecting and whether it's worth protecting right why there's a a stairs align earlier in episodes where we learn that the world's are in trouble so is that you know. Is that Azriel doing doing that is it. Because he wants to fight God. Is there one world. There's only one world like a one to one ratio. Just universe are parallel universes sues But yeah it dust will not be explained because the point of the story is to explain it so you will have to wait for the full explanation nation until literally season. Three of season. Three does happen. If it's a third season I highly doubt that they're gonNA push the next two books. Yeah it's interesting because I mean like I said would they need to pick a lane any to you to speak to me on sort of a morality level about what's right and wrong like wool running anyway from a murderer. It's right wrong LYRA leaving Rogers body behind the sort of existential questions. You have to ask ourselves in order to serve what's good and was just and writes Is there more than two universes. We have to explorer. Her is Larry and a jump over and jumping to multiple. UNIVERSES is is dust explainable. I mean I mean do we think it's coming from this one universe or is that something that we are going to just jump between every universe explorer and those are some really interesting questions is that I don't think the show understands when they made it was really interesting because it was really interesting to me is demon relationships and we haven't had any of that MHM Not Enough and we've had some but I mean certainly any objective viewer could say it's not enough based on what I know of off the rest of the series. I think I get why. They didn't want to commit any more than they did. To the idea of Demons Mints Yeah. I'm staring out at you with a look of a person who desperately wants to share information things. I say we've got answers to provide. Maybe but it's not going to happen now because they're spoilers. No yeah no I'M NOT GONNA I'm not gonNA that's like ended a series stuff. That's fine we can guarantee next season even more at light spoilers. Well then I'll be able to talk about a lot more so that'll be fun. Do you feel like you have answers. And a firm solid grasp on what's happening here. Do you feel like you have that And if so do you feel like you have from reading all the books or and yes. Okay yeah it that these questions do get pretty definitively answered. Oh there's a I just remember the really cool thing. It's going to happen next season involving death so if you were just like a virgin sort of you're you're right now at this point would you recommend people read things to catch up and understand what's going on or just let it wash over them with the next season when it comes or read any kind of sloping supplementary material material. What are your thoughts? I think that the show has been doing really good job I I I know. It's been a little slow in places I have complained about being slow and places but I think it's done a good job integrating the really need to know information from the books so I think you would be okay just watching the next season as it is if you want to read the books like by all means Do the dancing. But if you would like to be surprised by things that happen obviously just go into fresh. I I don't know when the next season is going to be released. I didn't see it. Slated for next year her yes I don't know. HBO Like there was a preview before the episode where they were showing all their stuff for twenty twenty. Go and I didn't see it in there but I think it's I mean I mean I know it's foreshore and Greenland for a second season. Perhaps a third but for sure the second session second is happening. So you and I I will be back to cover this on bald move. TV next year or whenever it comes out the next season. I mean yeah You you and I will maybe covering something else of our choosing We've had a lot of fun. Doing this together has been fun. Yeah and I people seem to be enjoying it. Yeah Yeah Hey yeah if nothing else. We're enjoying it. So we're we're gonNA find some other excuses to you work together in the future here soon. Your Yeah Yeah. What's your demon? My Zemun Yeah okay. I love your suggestion of the Magpie attracted by things that are shining but also God. I don't know what animal hates itself. The most that's me. Maybe like a cry now Yuriko. I'm trying to think of some sort of thing that just like imbued in darkness but also is a princess. That's me possum. I hate myself so much. But I'm so great bipolar. Do you ever a yellow your ass. If so possum. Gosh some possum I just. I live in the darkness. Nisa screaming my own ass constantly I really get off on that. You have the nasty his his tail in the University of the year earliest you. We're friends can you. I know tell me about your nasty ass. What's your demon a crow? Yes abinger baby. Yeah I'm playful I'm obnoxious noxious occasionally loud when it is not warranted. You collect making nests out of shiny things. I do collect shiny. Things is true What what else Mr -vivor Mine Independent you're not scared of no man and fields scare to know men field. Try to try to stuff off your. Hey with dude clothes. I know what's up. Not Fullness grow- grew land right. She's not shitty revenge the Crow Crow scrappy. I'll pick up a cigarette. This equality content people come for. I'm not a raven because I'm too much I'm to garbage to be is too. Many is too much foresight. Nobody wants to know all that. None Anna peer into knocking on people's those doors in the middle of the night No sitting on busts of philosophers yeah Who's got time for that? Nobody I just I all have time for is screaming my own ass. Good Times is there. In their feedback is feedback in Britain. We Have A. We have a little bit of feedback feedback this week as always you can send your feedback to TV at Bald Move Dot Com. We of course will not be coming back until the next season of his dark materials else to discuss his dark materials. But Alexis and I will probably be working on some kind of secret super-secret feature in the meantime because weekend not resist each other's company it is true and So if you send any feedback then we'll be happy to read and review it but maybe won't be considered This year our first piece of feedback for this episode in this season overall is from Beth. Beth says she has some thoughts on both the episode assode in the series. Her thoughts on the last episode are interesting that they changed how Roger died it was more of an accident in the book. as real was trying to do what he did but it nearly did not work and Roger ended up falling with demon still trapped so they were ripped apart perhaps as is more of a humane ending so yeah and the books As you said earlier Rogers Demon was locked in the cage. Roger Fell L. off a cliff and the separation and the cliff dive. Guild them James the mcevoy did a good job. I liked him a lot more. This episode he's such terrible bastard but completely certain of his convictions which does make him more compelling who it was so creepy with Roger. That smile and he succeeds was so wrong agreed I love how you can. So clearly see both her parents and Laura but she somehow managing to be a good person she greater than the summer for parts of two wrongs make a right. Maybe kind of think think Roger was brilliant to the end his and Lara's relationship was a centerpiece of the show. And if it hadn't been so convincing it would not have worked. But they really shown Jones together. Poor poor Lyra agreed. So cute I when I was reading the books. I didn't feel the same relationship delight or to Roger Rather but these two a+ gassing gets better lines in the show to he doesn't really get to say or do a lot in the book other than be the in mortal peril right which is not really sound very cares not not clever. Continue to think that Mrs Coulter is brilliant. Scary area really loves her and Azriel together. Their relationship is fascinating and I wish we'd got to see more of it or maybe I sympathize with her being unable to not Mac Jane mcevoy and fair point. You know she got some little light macking but when you are a a woman who knows. He always be second fiddle to pursuing at the time. Yeah including other women. Apparently I've seen I've seen the watchman of rather watchmen been dating a god isn't great. It seems great because you can have like eight you can have eight versions of the God pleasure you all at once but it it has its own as its own problems. Sure I'll give you that I've there's something to be said with emotional connection. His arm saying will was interesting. I mean not all right. Let's go too far. I think being plundered by able the same time sounds amazing. We'll was interesting but I guess the story's climax sounds really last week so a little like treading water so can't wait to learn more more about what's in store for him and the knife he's meant to be leading Lyra blackwoods you quick. Correction Beth is not lower blackwoods. LYRA SILVERTON MHM gets trail if you could claimed if you could just correct your emails in the future for the second season that'd be great. We love you Beth. Thank you for sending feedback just every almost every episode. Beth has overall Thoughts on the season whole on On mass overall it was really enjoyable. It looked incredible on the casting. Made it comes to life really well agreed They struggle to get some emotional. Beats quite right with certain big moments just not landing. I think that might. It comes down to rushing a little and not quite managing to set up the world the lack of world building around demons in certain relationships in help there was so much they had to convey. Okay so I feel for them but it's something they'll need to work on because the world is of the world's seem to be getting bigger not smaller. They'll need to work on the action scenes for the next series. The work in my opinion agreed couldn't agree more. You have the action budget rendering eight bears as opposed to like three and that's the difference. It makes to get an a solid action scene where we see what's happening then. We'll sacrifice it. Yeah Yeah We'll naira have been set up to perfectly that I cannot wait to see what happens next We got we got. What's that a little bit and our end series? Recap thank you Beth. Thanks for being. A fan is written in every week this so far almost every week we except for the last week you're slacking but we still. You are slacking a little bit but Alexis and I decided to grant a Christmas miracle and forgive me for that. Ah I hope I hope this is all tongue in cheek though. I'm serious well. One of us is a nice person. At least it's not me me so Mary says unfortunately the show was kind of disappointing for me. My expectations probably too high with the terrific cast and getting the HBO Bureau Treatment See Fair. It was far from terrible. But after watching the finale overall I feel it has been a rather sombre and joyless journey. A wishes show would have caps more of the playfulness and lightness of the books. I think a lot of this is how they had ethnic Kenyan play Lyra the girls and amazing amazing young actor. Sure so I believe she would have been up to the task of playing Lyra. Anyway that was asked for LYRA was brought here in the books but also full of spirit and childless child ish recklessness. That's a hard thing to say childish recklessness. That was charming I think it was less believable. That the more grounded headed and rational. The show LYRA was not double checking every move she made in the auditor. Yeah yeah criticism. It is one of the problems that it has had. I think we'll get into this I have a preview of a couple of our final feedbacks. The the fun the Shah suffered we'll get into kind of like rating the differences But that's very insightful. Mary Mary. We also says I don. I also don't like all the character changes. They May. Mrs Coulter Ruth. Ruth Wilson is terrific in the role. But Mrs Coulter's played as unhinged Enj and relatively powerless in the show. She is kind of under the magisterial. He'll in the book she was. Just this sort of cruel and powerful Dynamo who you couldn't really figure out all the motives of but you knew she was calling the shots They also kind of mess that witches. I wish they had more of them in more Sarafina as a character. Instead of a Dallas Makina Gina Exposition Queen. She added a bit of brightness to the books which were power from the books but they were vulnerable to enemies as well and they had this whole whole culture. That was interesting and added to Lara's world. I agree I feel like instead. Of which is they just did the one which also said said early on as she would only be there when you really need her but she was always there little bit of mixed mixed messaging really Li scores. Be An I have scores. Be I have mixed feelings on Lin. Manuel Miranda's find though. Probably not my first choice for me. At least he brought a bit of Levity to the show but it seemed like he was asking a different show than everyone else. My main issue is. I don't think the show really sold the bond between him and lower very well agreed. Yeah I will also say knowing what I know of what comes in the future. Sure it's not a big deal but yeah it just like the relationship between Her and York was more important than the one between her and lease scores. Be Right now and I think that's that's kind of how it is in the books to. I don't know why they tried to lean into the father. Figure thing thing as much as they did there that conversation does exist in the book but bright and I think this now that I think this conversation when land earn sorry not lin-manuel at least Gorby pulls liar away from after she brought back Lily. Billy Kosta Bring Dreicer back and says you know this is not about you. This is about family. I think thing that works independent independently of any like kind of relationship. They have any kind of like shared sleep in the tent arrangements. It doesn't as a matter so much. Personal Gripe why did they take out Lord Azriel making the comparison of the imagery imaginary number I to the story of Adam and Eve a really like that in the books to Matthey to buy. I don't know if that was that was pullman original idea but I think it's an interesting parallel between math and religion so more of a personal preference for me to keep it in. I do think they might. They may have been concerned earns. Though it'd be something that would go over some people's heads and they clearly don't want any of that to happen as we can see for no series so far keep grounded the last complaint which is almost not worth repeating. We're all the demons. Where where are the fucker? All the demons Mary. We'd all like to know Oh. Mary wants to conclude with what she really liked about. The show. Starting to bring in wills a character earlier and fleshing out Lord boreal Oriole little though some of this Ghanchi especially in Cutting between will mirus means. Sometimes I think overall that was a smart move I liked the will actor. He was supposed to be someone with a strong force of will and smart and very serious and I think the kid nailed. It agreed without any kind of like sub context to who he is. I agree with that me too. Also the Roger Actor I thought did a really good job in the books has death was not very emotional to me because the character your had little to no personality or time in the novel it was just kind of shocking that they would kill a character in that way. I think actor did a lot to give him personality in the screen paintime. He had he had good friend chemistry with lower too. I definitely felt some feels at the end of. The finale agreed yup the the way that this was shown the very very last bit that last seen I think was super effective from us. Maybe one of the most effective things that the show tried to you do our next feedback from Yazmin. A couple points in no particular order. lin-manuel Miranda's Lee scores be was no good. I try to give them a chance but now that the season is over they definitely could have found someone better. yes I liked Linneman. Well I want him to have a place in this in this universe but this was not the a place and I also feel. The balloon crash was bizarre and in didn't really I mean. Imagine a universe where Dr Larry Fellow and the three of them found a place to land Lee stood with the balloon. York went back to the camp camp and Roger Stay with the balloon. They all met up together again later. I don't know how that's different from him. Just being fucking incompetent person who crashed a balloon once he lost a little girl and a giant bear and another small little boy again. GotTa say they really. I don't know if Siegi budget or what but there was a storm happening in the book there. There was a reason like you can't see when snow is blowing around. You cannot see mountains and stuff so take. We're we're not in the not in the show. So yeah your criticism is valid in this situation An again okay. I haven't said it early enough but I love this show. I love this book series. I love this idea this concept I want to love it more than anyone or anything not more than anyone more than anything. I WanNa love this and I do love it. But it's just I can't help but having questions. Yeah I mean you can absolutely like something and still have criticisms of it right. It's not like you sound like you marry somebody and then suddenly or you get in a relationship with somebody. And there's nothing Mike. This person adding anyhow fallible wrong. Oh my God Yeah No. It's crazy to think that you would never have anything bad to say about something right right and there are just with the marriage there. Unrecognized irreconcilable differences. There are none that I found in the show. But it's still you know I'm just asking for better because we're still here. We're in to win it. You know we we're married to this thing and were really invested and we want to make it work but if author in irreconcilable differences in the future. Then we're not going to stick around and just continue to get our hearts broke I'm I'm in it I will. You will yeah keep covering this damn thing to the end started girlfriend. WHO's like girl? You deserve better. Come on on. Come on he doesn't love you. He doesn't respect you all true. He sends every time he enters a room with you like that's not okay. That's not how you treat a woman. The he leans into a fake tax accents. What is convenient for them when I? I didn't like that first episode that he was but I thought God He was arrested is better better. Yeah bridges like the context of them being there was not a better The Osmond continues continues. The final moments of pan looking for Rogers Demon and Lyra holding his body. Actually got me. Kind of emotional. Daphne keenest killing it use girl yes her I wanNA see. I've said this before but I wanNA see Logan. I'm super invested. In Anything Daphne keen is in future. Logan you did see it. No Uh no I didn't I haven't seen logan she so fierce. It's great to hear you speak at all okay. I thought it was kind of like a animal child kind of thing. But she's definitely a protagonist in right. Yeah she's amazing Jasmine Air Yasmine continues. I also liked how they did. The juxtaposition of will versus Lyra as they prepared to step into new worlds but wasn't wills Dora or the same one Lord boreal was using that semi telegraphs. He was he's going to liars world but I know they meet in an entirely new one. The SPA is a bit of a suspect La but it's it's being left in. Its being left often. I'm sorry all but after we've been so cagey throughout the rest of this episode. Let Yasmine suit thing. I will speak louder than you go on. I don't think I don't think it's a spoiler to understand that in the future we might be introduced use to new worlds besides the two that we've known so far. Yeah I think it's a little bit. I think he's a little bit naive to think that we're not going to be introducing world can meet. Yeah this is A. This isn't a spoiler four like exactly. What kind of worlds were Will enter into because I still even reading that. I don't know know what that means. I think that if you are aware of enter dimensional or parallel universe kind of travel. Then this is something. That's just antiquated to you. In fact as something everything about it a lot lately like if every if every choice you make it creates a different universe of a different choice that you've made then the time of conception of yourself or any the other personal world every every point of conception is different Ray Like there's a there's infinite universe's of you and I as ourselves that were born as were on the choices that we made. But what if our parents look what if a different sperm at one Then it's a completely different you you maybe good live the exact same light beer. It's different you and it's a different like facial construction of features or maybe it wouldn't have even been Korea or exactly all those things. There's so many different infinite universe's so for us to suggest to you that those things exists in these universe universe. Well I'm sorry. I'm sorry it's going to be something that we're going to have to explore. And that's something that I don't have any knowledge of in the future books or anything like that but I do but I'm kind but yeah it's It's a really interesting thing. I thank you. Stick around to explore Willis willing our wills willingness to randomly step into what looks like a paranormal inaugural event was a little odd from what I remember in the books who's being chased and fell through the door an accident. It made sense the way they cut his and Larry scenes but other than that. It wasn't something. I generally cautious scared for his life. Teen would do would you. I'm weird I would. I'm weird like one hundred percent. I mean He. He did the prerequisite amount of exploring that was he stuck his hand through his hand and burn off than. When did you kill a guy? Clear your mom's through you can see through these windows a little bit. Yeah you could see the earliest kind of like blowing through the doorway away in the show you can see yeah knows a little bit So yeah it's embiid but plausible. I think Maybe she's one of those people who doesn't have like a child a problematic child she doesn't want to flee at every opportunity never dreamed of escaping and running away from your parents Yeah you'll go through a doorway there. Have you ever seen the bridge detail Beth. Yeah come on is stories. All the time Ask Ariel from the Little Mermaid. I could go on all day. Just make like infinite connections. But I'm not going to do that because the last point here is that in the books didn't Mrs Coulter step through the door with Lord Azriel Israel. She was just as ambitious as he said and still loves him. Obviously her monkey and his panther or Snow Leopard. I think you mean scene. Two demons caress each other the same room into adult subjects. I think we explore this fully but in the show I guess they were there to make her more sympathetic and or love Liar. More than I thought. Am I off here So she's saying that in the books Mrs Coulter Cepsa the door with Lord Azriel. I don't don't believe that happened. No that's not my recollection. All these all they say of her actually is that she walks away from the doorway. They don't go back to her after she. She didn't even say like correct me if I'm wrong She doesn't even say like I'm doing this for Lyra. No I think so. Yeah it doesn't seem to have any express gain here but they do. I mean like you said they want to make Azriel and they WANNA make coulter more sympathetic than they actually are But as just people without parents trying to deal with being without parents I guess because liar is just a strong independent woman. WHO's GonNa have to her child? Right now is a woman his to figure it out for herself. Richard says my biggest problem. The show is the pacing. I constantly feel as if the plot is dragged out and padded. It looks great but I can never quite make up my mind if I'm watching. Yeah another tween potter show or something more for me. I found the eighteen to be very decent overall in the show. Really good but at the same time I don't really care about any of the characters actors I don't feel invested. I guess I mean the funny thing is as many pacing issues as show does have it. It shows all the important points from the book and it doesn't really believe that much out and still manages to pack in some things from the second book doc so the books are just kind of a slower paced thing. It's not like your standard child or young adult and at venture novel where there's just like action action action all the time. It's more thoughtful than that. Yeah there's Yeah I think Richard got a point here in that it does feel drug out and padded concern points like they really push in this book to staff with wilkes-barre and in a place that wasn't in the first season But also you know like I said early on I feel like you have to have some. Yeah he's exact question I asked like. Do you have some sort of relationship to like the orphan ness of yourself or or the specialness of yourself to make a connection to the show. It's hard to say for me especially going into it with I was already. I was already a fan of the books when I was in middle school. Whenever it was I I read them? So it may vary. It's far as that goes MIRA. I'd love to go back in time and kind of like experience in that but Harry Potter was going on so who is a time You've says I really enjoyed your recaps and analysis especially in the slow season. I think the show was trying to find its identity during the whole running and that was really unfair to the viewer. Yes thank you He was his main for. What's the target audience? What's your budget? And what are you going to spend your budget on hungry trying to go for. Yeah Eve continues. Still the actresses and actors. Were we say actors now. I guess really good not amazing scenes fucking killing it. I think Lord Azriel even though he's he's doing a suit or James mcevoy even though he's doing a Super Shakespearean thing really works in the series really drew me as earl is kind of over the top. He is kind of extra so it works for me. Yeah Uh Ruth will send an her. Puppet monkey were incredible I mean I can say that kind of about everyone's everyone's performances. Who would you say? Is anyone like slumpy is in. What did anyone do a bad job? It's all kind of melodramatic. But it's not bad. No Eve says it's not amazing. But they're only one or two I can think of who are less exceptional And they're gone now so it's not a problem not a problem. They're all dead. You heard it here first. First Folks Alexis hates Roger and glad he is dead head. Can't stand eve continues. Listen Alexis we don't need you to tell us how glad who are. The children are dead anymore. They either has more to say but the second season I hope. HBO DUMPS THE BBC and goes flawn. Game of thrones this were you. Kim Thrones Watcher Fan. I think that using that as your metric to compare everything that's even remotely remotely fantasy to do. Does a disservice to those things. I've heard an less comparisons. Like yes this first because it's the next thing. Hbo Did and then Witcher. Yeah which is completely separate are completely different the only times communist fantasy. It's literally a yes there. There is some kind of fantasy. There are some comparisons you can make like sorta language language like their their choice of like consistency the of speaking the same language. There are some like similar scenarios but Alexis Erin and I are going join to do A. Oh you're calling it. Yeah we'RE GOING TO BE NOT GONNA call specific day but I think the three of us could really do everyone a service by talking about about the witcher. Anything that's great. I think that it's comparing any of these things. The game of thrones is just not fair. It's not useful. No it's not useful for anything thing right. The only thing I could I could even remotely think that would be a fair. Comparison is if someone did a live action adaptation of off scar him or elder scrolls. Rather unroll I mean. Game of thrones it was fantasy yes but it was more period drama right and a lot of ways. They really only snuck in the magic stuff toward the end whenever Danny got real magic beefy. You're basically and priestesses and everything right comparing these things. It's just like you are a person who desperately as hole in your heart about a certain thing but these these two things do not compare if you're a person listening to right now or to this podcast right now. These things do not compare notes on the different but just because they're like even even just because they're vaguely the same genre doesn't mean that they have to be the same story kind of story own same anything to Eve's point she. You're saying that for the second season hope. HBO DUMPSTER BBC and goes full on. Game of thrones with us. I think that means maybe that they just like if he dumped the BBC. There's there's no inhibitions anymore for that rating maybe more like. I don't know how you do this with this series by like a Saxon violence. Maybe we can see those things more maybe not the sex so much. 'cause it's kids but I could see actual bears hurling a fire hurler hitting as wreck target. They can be cool is so sex or actual violence is implied. Type of like budgetary things. Maybe that's what she means Finally Eve says I would like to know from MMU now that you watch the movie and the first season how would you rank them so it depends on the scale gail that we are applying to the problem if we are talking about the Fundus of watching and the yelling nece at my TV that happened then the Golden Golden Compass was better for me. Yes but if we are talking in terms of quality and how well it sticks to the source material and how well it explains itself definitely definitely the series. Now I agree on one hundred percent like something about the golden compass had a much more saturated tone to it. there The relationship if I could take the relationship between Ruth Wilson and Daphne King and implant that into the movie that was the Golden Compass. I think it'd be perfect. I think okay I think James mcilroy makes a better Lord Azriel the Daniel Craig. Yeah Yeah because he's he's more conflicting character. A little wouldn't more charismatic to just acting wise. Yeah I think Daniel Craig I only want to be an aside one hundred percent James mcevoy. I'm like he's got some psychotic me to him and like he loves his daughter and his His Baby Mama. But they're not but you also know that he's got some mouse Daniel Craig. You're like He's GONNA turn out to be good Guy Venturi right And with our you don't even get to see him yelling child on a mountaintop. So you extra want to relate to him right. I think that the May the movie Golden Compass could've been better served in two parts and it would have been perfect. I think because they tried to force in too much but the battle at the end was perfect. You had the witches the bears. The I mean had this Moy ads and the tartars against who are they you other than the bears and the witches Egyptians and just like the kids and the junctions like the battles much better. Yeah it was bigger it was or there were some unquestionable though tactics used but it was more fun to watch right and to have Serafina Peck. Allegis fucking destroy all these guys even though she said on Mon only going to watch over in case you need my help absolutely. It was too quickly summed up I'd like the emotional national scene between Nicole Kidman and the LYRA and the movie. Better Than Ruth. Wilson and Daphne keen but I'm I don't know I'm just trying to like judge by emotional moments Atlanta better for me and that was one of them Thing a healthy dose of mixing the two like Nicole Kidman and that Lyra didn't look anything like each other like in this series. If you were to start from episode one I think you could guess Azriel and Coulter or her parents but that's with very informed knowledge. Judge the other one is like. Oh it's a stretch enough she gets. She's like Super Blondin golden-haired I don't know yeah. I my one one of my biggest complaints and I think I mentioned this on our on our bold move TV episode where we covered Golden Compass. It was ours ours ours ours whereas ours ours ours ours coverage coverage cartridge. The movie was very much afraid of confronting getting the the darker themes that are in the story. It's too you're looking at two things that are on like a completely different inside of the spectrum as far as funding and tone go where we have the series which is leaning into the darkness. And I again I will say that. The darkness organise changes as the series moves forward. So it's not so much holy Shit. It's not exactly like the human experience in the darkness changes all all the time and it's impossible to tell he's going to be better. You think it's going to be better than just you just find new problems where the movie is on the complete other scale scale where it's it's nothing but popcorn Right got popcorn and you got bourbon. Somewhere in the middle would probably be good. But what we have right now house to opposites Bourbon Bourbon Popcorn Bourbon popcorn. Oh isn't that just. The white dog is isn't supposed to taste a little bit like popcorn. I don't know sorry on the booze nerd and not familiar but other get it. Yeah our final final feedback for this week and for the entire season one is inferno NYC now that the show is pretty much covered the movie version. What parts did you like from the film more than the show and vice versa? What aspects of the books that the film show better? And what did the show improve. Upon on the books gassing special affects things are added or moved etcetera be pretty much just said that the the facts were that are in the movie. Yeah much bigger budget exactly so being that and destroy them but yeah I feel like if we could take this series. Cast everything implanted into that movie's budget and saturation. The colors game Those things I think it'd be a really winning economy com-combined combination of the two and the More demons more demons more demons. That's all I can say is more demons because I feel like when you go to its adopt office kind of thing having for me. Personally I have a demon. I would see him at home. She scar rich a hater. But she's fifty percent. One of my story leaves dead mice near Ed Lee. And she's so charming for that but it's like that's the whole point right Your when you get the to the point where your demon is your soul and you are just kind of like a living body of just like functions. Then the demon should be fifty percent of that and Demon settles in whatever form is kind of representative of your your personality and your personality. Johnny isn't always a bird. And that gives the the show the mythologies sort of a lot of short shrift. You're either for a dog or your their dog or a wolf and the ice or your bird and I don't know I think going to make that makes sense. You have to buy into the idea that there are multiple levels of personality like there are there are base core elements of who you are as a person that you're just Kinda born with I guess and then there there's the fluff on the top. which is your it's your nature versus? Nurture exactly and that's something that you should confront when you you start to develop a series not when you have developed in shot the series you don't get fifty percent of the way through and you're like we should pantomime in chasing using Lyra through the through Jordan college and now we can't show a bear fight anymore. Lead the jaw ripping mother job ripping really do I. That's a very specific thing I want and I feel like that's not a big ask is. I think it's very feasible if you know what you're getting into you when you start shooting the series and like fifty percent of of your budget and cast are CGI animals. It's just what you have to get into. Yeah we also don't know what to what degree the budget has been approved wbt if that budget that was that has already been approved was for both seasons so they're trying to stretch out a little bit for the next season. 'cause shit gets magical. Yeah in the next season gets crazy. Yeah I mean like four if that's not the case and they just Kinda did the best with what they could know. You and I are just expressing expressing kind of regrets and how much we love the show and I I mean again. I'm so in I'm here for you and I are going to be back for the second season. Whatever that comes about L. maybe year and a half maybe two years something that we will be here for it and Alexis them and I have really enjoyed each other's company so much so that we're GonNa to find some other excuse to work together here soon now?

Coulter and Corsi: The deplorables edition

"She whipped up Donald Trump into a frenzy writing a book that convinced them that rapists and murderers, drug traffickers were pouring across the border from Mexico threatening our safety, and our national culture and Coulter's arguments based on scary anecdotes gleaned from nexus searches led to Trump's signature if wholly impractical campaign pledge to build a wall from sea to shining sea at have Mexico pay for it. But when Trump failed to deliver Coulter turned on him and accused him of being a wimp and running quote joke presidency that scammed the American people Coulter stinging attacks on Twitter along with the tongue lashing on talk radio by her ideological ally. Rush Limbaugh is widely credited with browbeating Trump and leading directly to the recent government shutdown. How does Coulter feel about Trump now? And how does she defend her two thousand sixteen campaign book memorably titled in Trump we trust? We'll talk to Coulter as well as another bizarre character who played a role in. Ump's political. Evolution notorious conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi on this special deplorables edition of skulduggery. Because people have gotta know whether or not their president's across while. I'm not a crook. I told the American people I did not create arms hostile my heart. And my best intentions still tell me that's true. But the facts and the evidence tell me it is not I did not have sexual relations with that one. There will be no lies. We will honor the American people with the truth and nothing else. Michael Isikoff chief investigative correspondent for Yahoo news. I'm Dan cliven editor in chief of Yahoo news, all right, climbing. Let's stipulate we're gonna get a lot of shit for this show. I mean, having Coulter and Coursey on two characters who I'm sure most of our listeners feel are two of the more unsavory characters in the Trump era both of whom played key roles. But look, you know, we like to expose skulduggery listeners to all perspectives and as many characters as we can in the unfolding saga of Donald Trump's presidency. And of course, he and Coulter are interesting on two levels one both helped to shape Donald Trump's political views Coursey with his ridiculous birtherism 's that inspired Trump in two thousand eleven and put them on the political map Coulter in two thousand sixteen with her book audio summarily about the threat of Mexicans coming across the border and more recently both the play. In a role Coursey a key player. He's a person number two in the Roger stone indictment, and he's got some interesting material that we're going to talk to him about. And of course, Coulter and the government shutdown. Yeah. Look the criticism is always don't give these people with their vile views and their conspiracy theories platforms. But the reality is in this social media aid. They already have platforms. I don't know how many Twitter followers and Coulter has but millions or something huge numbers, and that's an unfiltered platforms. She gets to just be out there and spread her message to whoever she wants to this is filtered. You know, we will ask tough questions, and we will expose as as you say the other thing is just to your last point. However improbable is it may be these two characters are influential and important. And as I think we'll find out Jerome Corsi is a key witness in the Muller investigation has brought to bear. New facts new insights into that investigation where it's going and Coulter has enlarge ways driven Donald Trump's most important and controversial policy. We would would Eddie would criticize us if we put, you know, Stephen Miller honor Steve Bannon on when he was in the White House. Stephen Miller, arguably is a functionary compared to an culture in terms of influence on immigration. We don't have to be that defensive because I do I'm getting I'm preempting criticism. Yeah. Well, we're going to get it. But look, you know, there is also a sort of a delicious den of thieves aspect to this. You know, they're all turning on each other as we'll discuss with Coursey. Roger stone is calling him a liar and a drunk, and of course, Coulter, and and Trump are going at it which will explore with Coulter. But before we get there just a couple of other items, which I want to bring up a number one got a fascinating Email just last night from our skulduggery guests Steve Cohen, the new conger. From Tennessee, the new chairman of the constitutional law subcommittee who shared with me and invite he just got from the Kuwaiti embassy on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the independence of the state of Kuwait requests, the pleasure of your company at a grand reception guess where the Trump hotel in Washington talk about the emoluments issue, which is right before the federal courts right now, judgment SETI and Maryland is given it the green light to go ahead. And this is the foreign governments pouring money into Trump's business raising questions about whether the constitutionality of that. And here we have evidence it's going on as we speak the lawsuits, notwithstanding the Trump hotels still taking business from a foreign government to the Kuwaitis invite you Mike, I did not get that invite. But you know, maybe go crash the play. Well, it was another skulduggery in which we talked about you getting an invitation from the Saudi him as he four. Saudi Arabia's national. Yes. Yes. Yes. That got canceled because it was the week that the kashogi murder was blowing up then the other just other item which I want to quickly vent about because we've talked about it talked about last week. We've talked about a couple of weeks whether we are going to get public hearings from the new Democratic Congress about the Russia investigation itself and key witnesses. And here we have Adam Schiff, another Paschal Duggary cast, the new chairman of the house intelligence committee, adding his first crucial hearing Russia related with Michael Cohen, and guess what? Next Friday behind closed door. I just don't get this. I understood it when the Republicans controlled the house and control the Intel committee, and they were working hand in glove with the president and essentially acting as defense lawyers for Donald Trump. This is the democratic house. You know, Adam Schiff is now the chairman of the house intelligence committee. What possible reason could he have for not continuing to not bring any fact witnesses before the committee publicly. This is unprecedented. Didn't happen in Watergate now during a wrong campaign finance hearings, all of which involve ongoing criminal investigations. But congress understood that it had a constitutional obligation to get the facts, especially when it concerns questions of presidential conduct or misconduct. And in this case, everything is being done behind closed doors. I'm I really think we need to ask every single democrat on that committee this question, and frankly, we need to ask Nancy Pelosi the question absolutely now, look, you know, the entrance. Well, we can't interfere with the Muller investigation. Michael Collins testimony is locked in. He can't change it. Now, the Justice department knows what it is Muller knows what it is the American public doesn't know what it is. And and shift does this behind closed doors. Other members of the house will not know what it is. So if Cohen is really. Accusing the president of engaging in criminal conduct either on campaign finance violations or telling him to lie about the Trump Tower Moscow deal. We don't know what exactly he would have to say there's disputed reporting on that. But we and members of congress deserve and should demand to know the facts, so they can be acted. All right. And they we are off to a fiery stars. So let's get to our guests. Yes. We are now joined by Jerome Corsi. Otherwise known is person number one in the Roger stone indictment. Dr Corsi, welcome to skulduggery. Thank you. Great pleasure to be with both of you. So you've gotten some notoriety of late not just because of your appearance in the stone indictment, but you've got a book that adds some additional material that Roger stone is not happy with you allege in the book that you got a call from stone on October seventh before the release of the access Hollywood tape in which stone is telling you that the access Hollywood tape is about to come out, and can you hurry up and get Assange to release the pedestrian emails. Well, first of all it's good to be with you both. And I wanna make it clear that I'm not interested in having any fighter disagreement with Roger he's interested in having a fight with you. Well, that's unfortunate. Rogers, call me Judas. He's called me a liar is call me a number things, and he should stop it. It's to his detriment. He's really gotta worry about fighting against Mueller up, by the way, the incident here on the access Hollywood in that date. That's not in the indictment, right? And Rogers very upset about it. But it's not in the indictment. And but it is in your book. I'll be happy to discuss it. I'm not trying to evade it. I'm going to dry. I just want to give you the context it make it sure makes you Roger here's the all do pay primary attention to what's in the indictment because those are the issues that are going to be important. There's not a public relations event Rogers dealing with this is a trial. Now, that's my recollection. And you'll if you read the book silent, no more on this date. I believe October eighth or seventh when the is very hard to get all the details and facts, and I like human tape-recorded. You can't punch a button. And I give you back. Exactly what happened the repeat the conversation. I recall Roger has with three calls two of them. One thing was eighteen minutes. One was twenty one minutes. And my recollection is that Roger mentioned that the access Hollywood was coming and that we needed to get to Assange. Now a couple of like let me say a couple more things about this very important. Number one. I said this repeatedly. I don't think Roger's heard me. I have that recollection. That's my recollection. I'm trying to tell the truth. So can I just have a different regularised ask you say the access Hollywood tape. It was coming. No. Of course at that point. When you're getting these calls from Roger nobody knows what the access Hollywood tape is. What does stone tell you about that that there's a tape in which Trump is talking about grabbing women by the pussy. What what does he tell you? Well, first of all, I think you're not entirely correct on that because the Washington Post, I believe gave advance notice correct to the campaign, but the world didn't know what this tape, and what I remember what I testified to this was a point even before the grand jury was I remember him saying specifically the grabbing them by the genitals. And that it was very offensive. And that this might that. Roger I remember wanting to have Assange respond quickly with his emails now. Please. Listen to me here because I've said repeatedly that my recollections and Rogers differ on this. Now, I'm not maintaining the my recollection is true in his false. I don't three people. See an automobile accident. You got three different versions of the automobile accident, I can only testify to you as to my recollection Rogers entitled to his own. And from all the work. I've done in psychology and everything else training and experience in life. My recollections are not always accurate against an objective sense of truth. Whatever that me, let's let let me just ask you this question. First of all, I think it's supporting provide a little context here. I think what you're getting at is. The Hollywood access tape had not been released yet. Roger stone would have known about it potentially. Because the reporter at the Washington Post Farren told called the Trump campaign to say he had this tape and so. Raja was advising the Trump campaign. And so in that capacity might have learned about it, which would give credence to why he would be calling you because he wanted to get these tapes out to distract from the release of the videotape which could have been disastrous. But let me just ask you. No one there for. Because his point you're making their wanna comment. Okay. And that is that what Roger perceived? He was doing you'll have to ask Roger about. I've told you what I perceived I proceeded this access Hollywood was coming out. It had very damaging language that was recorded by Donald Trump. This was a very busy day for me and with a special counselor. They had all my phone calls, and we went through. I did not get my phone calls. We're variety wouldn't give me my phone calls for that day. We had all my phone calls. I went through every one of the calls every one of the meetings. I have the call with Roger came in about two o'clock the last call, and I'd had conference calls and other meetings that day. My recollection was I tried to say to world net daily conference call that. This is coming as anybody. No way to get to his aunt. I did not have a way to get to his on JR. And in all the calls. I made. There was no one I called a contacted that I could figure out. Or even though the special prosecutor could figure out as far as I know that was a way to get the message to Assad not very possibly Roger wanted me to do that. But it didn't say, well, we're gonna get two questions about communications with Assange in a little bit. But didn't the Muller team have records of the phone calls that you were talking about between Roger stone? In fact, this is important for Roger to know is that what the Mueller lawyers the three prosecutors told my lawyer David Gray was that they had the content of the phone calls the contents. I believe so how would they have the controversy? Now. Now, you're getting at the heart of my one of the issues of my lawsuit. I've just filed a federal lawsuit against feeler. And I believe I was subject for the at least the Fiso wires electronic surveillance was I think was illegal, and I may have been subject as far back as the NSA surveillance to two thousand four, but repeat. Really the prosecutors would say things three of Mueller's. Prosecutors would say things that David Gray. And the conferences they had and with David came back in and said, they know your phone calls. They have the contents of the phone calls. Well, I look I got to say that doesn't make any sense. To have the content and there I mean, I was not. I didn't say you talked to David grain. Here's the chronology at twelve thirty that day Farren hold calls. The Trump campaign and asked for comment on the tape at one forty two stone calls you and you speak for eighteen. How do we know that? That's this is that was in my phone records. That was given given me. Remember, the Mueller team has pretty much everything. So you got those phone records from from Mueller from the Muller to. Yeah. They gave me these phone records as I say, call log they had the tie this time. And who was called, right? Okay. And that's what they had. And there was I believe one call for one minute that didn't connect. I didn't seem like there was one for eighteen minutes. I think that's the ones. And then there's another one at two eighteen you call stone back, and you speak for I had a con-. That's I think when I had the daily conference with the world daily staff in between the two that was the publication that you were working. I was working as a staff reporter for WorldNet. Daily we had a daily conference call, and I think that was between the two calls now when I was finished with that. My recollection is and this is by the way detail. This is nothing new this is in silent. No more. It's been out there for two months in an e book edition and for one month in an audiobook edition and is available for everybody to hear. That's not in the indictment is not an issue that Roger is being pressed on all right to the best of your recollection. Did Roger stone? Tell you that he'd heard about this upcoming tape from somebody in the Trump campaign, though, I don't recall that distinct and now Michael see you're doing the same thing that the prosecutors did to me you're asking me to be a human tape recorder pungent of button, and you wanna hear the trying to get the police trying to get that since you want to hear the recording Goto bueller 'cause he seems to have the recording. Well, I'm skept I'm skeptical. I know you are that there would be a recording. Unless stone was without your knowledge tape. Being phone wise out. I have no reason to suspect you have to ask him. And by the way, I'm telling you my best recollection. And I'm also telling you, it's not precise. It's the impression I have for that call and I did testify to it. And I did write about in the book Roger may see it differently. I don't know what Rogers sees. So all we know is what Roger road on Instagram after you began talking about this. I can. This genital liar. That's you to produce any evidence corroboration of proof of this fairy tale, which has emerged from his alcoholic haze await God will strike this liar down do you think Roger cassette at any shopper? I mean, you know, I will feel about that. Well, I will draw online defamation. I'm not gonna put up defamation. I think though that this is unfortunate on Rogers part. And I would really encourage him to stop. I'm testified. You have to understand this. I'm trying to testify as to what? My perceptions of the truth. Are I've been doing that from the beginning. You guys may not understand me in this regard. But my religion very important to me. I make memory mistakes all the time, and I had have the testimony amended, but I'm not giving my testimony calculated to benefit or detriment anybody. I'm just trying to do it as precisely as I can from what I remember. And from the record demonstrates. It's and Roger if he does look at the indictment should realize that this indictment was written to be determined on the evidence. And in fact, there's Roger instead of going back. He said she said with me and all these nasty name calling and the like, which I would prefer to ignore. I don't have any malice towards Roger, and I got malice to you. That's his problem. It's not mine. Right. I feel love in my heart towards Roger and I have no intention of saying anything to him. I wouldn't lie to save him. And I wouldn't lie to hurt him. I wouldn't lie. That's my recollection. It's in my grand jury testimony. It's been for two months in printed in the book Rogers just now angry about it. But it's been out there now for a couple of months, and I'm perfectly happy of Roger disputes it. I'm not gonna argue with him that I was right. And he was wrong. Well, I could point out that if Muller really did. Have the content of these phone calls, and he could have put them in the indictment, and it might have been pretty conclusive evidence. Well, Michael, you're speculating as you can speculate all you want. I can't tell you with hazard. It doesn't let me tell you what. My attorney told me now. Now, not too long ago just to like about a month and a half ago Muller was threatening to indict you. And in fact, that was a member November. Okay. So and they gave you a draft indictment. Stan I really check a plea deal. Yeah. It was a plea deal. They wanted me to plea to one count, and it was all the first day's testimony, which they allowed me to amend, and they wanted me to plead guilty to the first days memory mistake when I had not seen a couple of emails. I was not able to reload by two thousand sixteen emails before the first days interview because I wanted to deliver to them these old computers in the state, I last used them in and so when I amended I got home ten days, they gave me ten days to go home and review. Load by two thousand sixteen emails came back, I amended that testimony and they accepted the amendment into the record. Now will they got mad at me was whole thing. Blew up because I could not give them a contact with song. They don't have a contact with on j-. You ask this guy? Ted Malik in London. But I'm not going to answer the future questions on for the jets the current headed when they presented to me. This plea deal. I said, that's fraudulent. I'm not going to stand up before a God. And a judge and say I knowingly and willfully gave the special prosecutor and the FBI information material information, I knew to be false with the intent to deceive them. I forgot a couple of emails that were in question here. The allowed me to amend the testimony, and I did not commit that crime. So I refused. They wanted me to lie. Tell that to a judge that I did that when I did not knowing the willfully give them information material ended up befalls to deceive them wouldn't do it. They said they put me in jail for the rest of my life. Seventy two years old could one year could be the rest of my life. I said if that's what you wanna do if I have to lie, and by the way, also on that plea deal. They required that I I have securities license and insurance license. They say you're going to plea the criminal before federal judge is going to be sealed. You can't tell the regulators in insurance. So they wanted me to violate my material obligations under the regulations of both of those for licenses. I wouldn't do that either. Okay. So darker Coursey I want to ask you about you lose his second ago your alleged contacts with WikiLeaks Julian Assange, which I don't. But others have and it's really important because a lot of this is what's fueled the belief that there was coordination with WikiLeaks from the Trump campaign. Roger stone ask you to go to WikiLeaks and get these e mails released you predicting and actually flatly saying that some of these emails we have come out in October, which they did. So first of all for the record on skulduggery right now. You have this is harder than other. We're all about the. I know really scare you did not have you had no contact zip direct or indirect zippo with none WikiLeaks with Julian Assange. Okay. So so all right. So explain to us how it is that you're able to deduce gas figure out can I just explain the still. Yes. I guarantee you from the statement of offense, they gave you this is an Email. You wrote to stone on August. Second two thousand sixteen word is friend in embassy plans to more dumps one shortly after I'm back second in October impact plan to be very damaging. So what he asked me about that? Well, that sounds like you did have advance knowledge of what Julian Assange is. So that is the question. Okay. I could answer that since I was a child. I've had the ability. I believe to put these things together. It's kind of like seeing a few pieces of a puzzle with it's clear voyage. It's it's I'm sorry. I did. I did I ask a question. All right. Going on. What are you just say? Well, you what I just did gone gone. We want to hear your next question to do. You're not gonna believe my answer that you charge me with being psychic. But you hear my firsthand. All right. Let's let's hear is that you have your mind made up or anything. I didn't think you have your mind made up at advance at any rate. So I'd say things my dad, my dad say, look, Jerry, if you start telling people this, they're gonna think you're crazy. So you tell me you guys still think I'm crazy. We'll see. So I was right. He said so you better start saying things like the word is you better. Make it sound. Like, you've got a source or nobody's gonna believe your like, my editors would've said, Jerry. What's your sources for this? I said, well, I got three me myself. And I well that's not gonna cut it. So I can explain to you. How I figured out. It was going to be pedestrian emails. You probably won't buy that either. But the truth is we spent twenty hours with the prosecutors. And I said, okay, I'm willing to admit maybe I had a blockage. Maybe I forgot maybe I communicated with somebody who I didn't know was feeding me information about Assange. So we painstakingly went through everybody who showed up in my phone messages. My Email messages any records, I had a meeting people and the FBI actually went to see a great number those people now after twenty hours, I couldn't find anybody. That was connected to Assange. And there was no indication whatsoever. That I had met with us. Andrea talk to Assange now, David Gray, again, my lawyer asked the prosecutors three of them Jeannie re so linski earns Alinsky and Andrew Goldstein. If they would just help us if they had someone I was willing to search my records, and my essay, they had produced somebody had forgotten about I was gonna say all acknowledge it remember trying to tell the truth to the best of my ability. Whether helps me your hurts me, it wouldn't have been a crime to see Assange. So there's nothing here I'm hiding because there's no difference. I did my doctoral dissertation at Harvard on Pentagon papers case, which is New York Times, the US, I knew those a journalist. I could see us on j-, I could publish what he had. It wouldn't be a crime is just that. I didn't see. Tom, john. I didn't get any information directly when you wrote word is where was the word from one. I'm trying to make it sound like I had trying to make it sound more crowd. That's all those explain how you figure that. Okay. Now. That's the next question. Okay. Dow do you wanna kiss me being a psychic before after I give you the answer? We'll give me the answer right now. And then pass judgment this time. I get to answer actually before you pass judge. I guess maybe I was clear voyage and figuring out. What your where I think actually you? Okay. Look in. I think it was June two thousand sixteen the DNC finally came forward and said that pedestrians emails had been breached K. So that became public record. Secondly on July twenty second two thousand sixteen Assange dropped somewhat like forty thousand emails on seamounts on DNC emails on Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Okay, now, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned on that Sunday before the gavel came down on the convention as on was timing the release you knew could capture the news cycle while the Democrats were in route and wouldn't be able to organize effective media response. It worked. Noah's I study those, and you know, I've had intelligence training a lot of work for the federal government contract. I wrote a paper in nineteen seventy-one where I figured out a computer model the predicted the outcome of terrorism. Mm-hmm. Published in the journal conflict resolution at I believe it was Yale. So this became internationally used. I was recruited on the team psychiatrists. I'm not a psychiatrist. And we'd Dow what I'm telling you is this. I learned the forensic analysis. I went through these emails, and I saw these were largely coming through the DNC server and pedestrians weren't there. Although I knew pedestrian had to have emails in that server because he was communicating with people in the DNC, which would have gone through that server, and I said, well, possesses emails were stolen. They're not here. I made a leap of deduction induction. I said what Assange has Podesta's emails now, I didn't know, and what I've learned when they were actually released is I think the person who got into the DNC server probably also or maybe another person independently got into the g mail account of pedestrians, and I wasn't that detailed when I came up with the actual leap of judgment to say this Pedescale. But I knew they were missing. And I knew Dessus have been. Taken and I figured given how strategic Assange is my conclusion was Assange Assange came out almost immediately after the July twenty second dump on wwl sort of got more. Now I follow. He said, I was said are they Hillary's questions there about? So you're puffing yourself with with stone. I wanna ask you about one other thing in the and now he's don't you want to accuse me, I mean, no, I get your point. You're about to say, hey, get your point. What one other point between a approximately January thirteenth two thousand seventeen in March one two thousand seventeen of course, he deleted from his computer all E mail correspondence that predated October eleventh two thousand sixteen including person one that Roger stone's Email instructing Coursey to get to the founder of Wiki leaks. And of course, he's subsequent forwarding of that E mail to the overseas individual. That's Ted Malik true or false, the those emails. I don't remember specifically. I'll tell you what happened. What happened is this first of all I had my computer, which was a seventeen inch laptop MAC book. Pro it was dying. I had to I like that size. I wanted to keep it going. I had an external hard drive that was backing it up. If you don't have the time machine application works on apple it makes a copy of everything in your computer four times a month. That's how I had mind set up. So that hard-drive had the complete record. And I couldn't Alder it. I couldn't go back in a race. It it had a complete record of everything in my computer for the years. I was using it the years in question. So a I handed that external hard drive over to the FBI and the first day, we had our voluntary interviews. I have forty hours. So I knew that even if I erased emails out of that, computer. They weren't gone. I could retrieve them. There's a distinction between racing emails on a computer and destroying evidence. I did not destroy evidence. I knew it now. Secondly, there were times when I actually open the mail program on that computer, and it wouldn't open because I had so many emails. I finally downloaded the two thousand sixteen emails there were I think fifty thousand emails so it wasn't just emails. I was deleting from Rogers. Stone. I went through and deleted probably half of the emails in that computer at one time or another. But it was not, you know, a vicious militias attempt to destroy evidence. Which is implied has all the evidence is still there. All right. Well, just to wrap up somehow, I think that back when you were on your birther kick and somebody is associated with rock Obama head deleted emails about his birth certificate wouldn't accept a explanation. Like that just innocent. I love I love talking to you guys. How you defame be put all here's my question of the bursar to you want with it. I don't think you want to off topic. Well, it's it's. It is a rich part of your history at bution to ten life. Defended this. We'll look forward to for another guy yet. Wait. That's good. All right. Of course. He thanks for joining us.

Tur- Danny Meyer, and many more. Subscribe to influencers with Andy Serwer on apple podcasts or wherever you find your podcasts. All right. Anne coulter. Welcome back to skulduggery. Oh, it's great to be here. Especially when I'm so busy running the country. Yes. Well, does make time for you. I. My first comment for you is echoing what hardy used to say to laurel. It's a fine mess. You've got into. That it has anything to do with me. Well, let's will explore. I'm running the country, man. It would be better run. We would have a wall. We'll discuss that. But obviously, we're gonna talk about your on again off again relationship with L president day, but let's start out with your most recent spat with Newt Gingrich like can't you get along with anybody. I mean, just inserted set this Gingrich points out that on living in fantasy Coulter's never run for office. She doesn't know anything about how you put a majority together she's off here in some fantasy land where she gets to be noisy which helps sell books and Coulter response on Twitter Newt's, right? I'm just selling books. But at least I don't have to kiss Trump's asked to do. So. Yes. Yes. I mean, he did. Correct. Me check. The constitution turns out, we don't have free speech right to talk about public policy issues unless we've run for office. So I take it all back. I'm just a citizen. Yeah. But look, no comment public affairs. Also right that I'm living in fantasy land. I will say it was very important correction. We do have an impermeable border wall two thousand miles sea to shining sea. So I thank him for a learning me that that's why Trump is sailing to reelection. Right. How could I be so foolish not to have noticed the border wall? There's a team. Just like Israel has no legal coming. There's a substantive point here that Gingrich was trying to make which is we live in a political world in which compromise is necessary because you've got a big chunk of the country and majority that thinks you're off your rocker. And that this wall makes no sense. And they don't support it. And guess what the Democrats control one chamber of the congress biggest with the president over this, which some would say led to the shutdown of the United States government came after the Democrats took the house back. I mean, how is it happen that way because the president eft up he kicked the canned down the road for two years and decide to spending bills with no funding for his central campaign. Promise the base was angry the first two times when he tried to do a third time after promising at the last spending Bill I'll never sign another Bill like this never never never as I said to him at the time. That's right because he'll be. Peach then gives this so classic Trump completely counterproductive utterly pointless. Because it sounds macho all take blame for the shutdown if I don't have all funding five days later. Oh, yeah. Okay. I'll sign it. No wall. Funding wasn't me was the base. That knows. It was the drudge report. It was Rush Limbaugh. And also don't cite the phony polls to me. Let's go back to your all of your polls ninety percent chance Hillary's winning election day, everything the media says about immigration is ally. A particularly the polls you my book addio Samarra. We put this lunatic in the White House for one reason you with this lunatic. But it's and by the way, there is no apologies to make on again off again relationship with Trump. I will defend them on the things he deserves defending on an attack on when he doesn't keep his promise. The point is why it's so crazy to think that president should keep his campaign promises. Wow. Lady. All right. Forget the polls for a moment. The Democrats control the house, they're not gonna give Trump his wall. So what do you want him to do? You. Obviously do not follow me on Twitter. Follow enough of you. Very clear actually since election day. What was I wrote about it in Trump trust one of the great things about Trump's campaign and the campaign was beautiful. Suddenly, I'm really warming to Chris Christie for attacks on on basically, everything Trump did to destroy his campaign. He should've kept Corey Lindau's e brings in his incompetent liberal Democrat, sewn in lines just all onto hill since then Conway is totally right about that, George Conway. We're talking about him before I walked in and greeted you. But as long as he does the right things, I'm totally with. Okay. Well, here's a question is Trump of fraud competent, lazy and incompetent. He's not. I don't think he's a so you thinking you've had many conversations with him about this subject. You say right now at this moment that to his core he believes in this policy, and the reason it hasn't happened. And the reason he caved in front of his base. And you is because he's just incompetent as opposed to do. You have any doubts about whether. You know, he's kind of not really. But I mean does he care more about building the wall or making sure Jared gets good press there? I'm not sure not sure at all. But no, he's always had the power to build the wall. I feel like I'm Dorothy and wizard of Oz. You've always had the power Mr President. He's always ease. The president's house shoes. Western you the entire public understands that if for no reason based on false reports of chemical of nerve gas being used in Syria, the president has thority just bombs billions in Syria. But we think that he doesn't have the authority to protect the United States citizens by building a wall at the border. That's what the defense is for defense. He should declare an emergency should read a constitution. Oh my gosh. I'm commander in chief who look at that they can build a well. That's what the department of defense or or I think it was called what used to be called before department department. Yeah. That's what our military did for the first hundred hundred and fifty years, they built fortresses along the border. What is the purpose of appropriate? I believe the defense department is fully funded. I think they're doing. Won't be if it does defending the plutocrats Rathan on and Boeing that's all we use to pump department of defense funds for now. Oh, let's build more useless weapons. We don't need to bomb civilian amnesty. No one is going to hurt. One single mayor look Coulter just want to be very specific here. All right. So you're saying he doesn't have to declare a national emergency. And if he doesn't need funding from congress. He doesn't need a deal from congress. He should just direct the defense department to bend wall. Yeah. That's what we have. But does our civil engineers doesn't what congress to appropriate money. Sure. Okay. So what they're just going to say department of defense can spend nothing are you claiming that the congress could say, no, you can send troops war. But you can't go up this battlefield. You have to go around back. We were with the point is his job is defend America from we're not at war war with Syria, and yet we bombed innocent civilians there did you complain about that Michael loss is no I don't think you did Brian Williams practically I can't say what he almost did on well for the record. We have been reporting on the fact that we've been at war for all these years in places that have nothing to do with nine eleven has to do. Military force. So I think we would be consistent on this issue as well. Yeah. But I'm still a little puzzled as to I came to understand how you can be puzzled with the commander in chief whose job is to protect the citizens of the United States. You guys think we can be starting wars all over the world bombing people all over the world paying Boeing, but the one thing you can't do actually protect American citizens. That's his job that is his number one job. And I mean, should he be building walls like in American cities between neighborhoods where there's more crime than I don't understand the logic. There. There's chief's job is not to protect the citizens of Indiana. From the citizens of Illinois is to protect this United States citizens from foreigners from foreigners. Who would do us harm like killing seventy thousand feet forget congress. He doesn't need to deal. He never did. He could just do it himself. I do think you should have asked congress for the money. Why? And it shows that I was wrong about. Mitch McConnell having three brain cells. He could rub together. He should have gotten the Democrats vote over and over and over again against e-verify against taxing remittances against a wall. Because I know, and you know, I know you think those polls are so much on your side say let's have a big argument about whether an illegal alien who runs across the border at eight months pregnant drops a baby must be in the constitution. Does anyone? Stop and ask. That's weird. Why would somebody put that in the constitution? Well, they didn't. It was invented by Justice Brennan in nineteen eighty two and slipped into a footnote, it is dicta in a supreme court opinion, congress Emmer said. Illegally. Scholar who endorses your idea that the president can just unilaterally order the wall being built without approval from congress or funding by congress. I mean, please let me know when you find a constitutional scholar who endorses that you find someone who can read and for the anchor babies, you can check with Richard poser. You can check with anyone on. We're talking about the anchor babies. It's all we talked about. Let's talk about your relationship with the president. Now, I'm hot because he's not very happy with you. In fact, he just said in a daily Wall Street Journal interview, I hear she that's Coulter becoming very hostile. Maybe I didn't return our phone call or something where you calling them. That's the most gentle alleged rebuke. I love these headlines Trump blast Coulter. He just called his own intelligence officials morons perhaps they're lacking into Ali says about me is I hear she's hostile. No, that's that's sending me a love poem. Okay. Well, so he did return your phone call. None of your beeswax. My. Whoa. Why not shouldn't? We know who the president is getting advice from now. Yeah. Well, I mean some. Transparent. Unfolded Diddy un-filed, you're blocked you on Twitter, not blocked me. And then he followed you back, but he's reading. I can tell. Yeah. Well, somebody's reading they're all reading me over there. All right. Does it matter to you? Whether it's called a wall or offense or some just fancies the'll slice and can be called the president Donald J Trump impermeable border wall. In gold, bright. Yeah. And golf course. I think that's how we can get them to do it. Do you think that like two years from now there's gonna be a wall? I mean, do you really believe that this is even die right now? Is it possible to build the wall? Again, have you? I'm just saying is. Is it can you? American people have been every time they are allowed to vote. I'm sorry. It's not one of your your Gallup polls. But gosh when they go aims. They can vote every time they get a chance to vote they vote for less immigration. They vote for no welfare for immigrants legal or illegal. They vote for English language requirements. They have okay. Grind ernest. Congress Republicans my jackass party that is only doing the bidding of the plutocrats, which is why Trump was so appealing finally someone who isn't jumping to the tune of the coke brothers. But then he got into office and hired Jared Kushner, Jared Kushner, said do everything the coke brothers say three times Republicans have tried to push through an amnesty in the last decade. I I think it was McCain than Bush than of course, Rubio the only way when Rubio pushed it Rupert Murdoch, Hannity rush. They were right with them. They were protecting him. Fox news. I read it in the New York Times was ordered to not use the word amnesty. Somehow it slips out to the American people. They find out an amnesty is going through. They shut down the congressional switchboards and one politician after another has seen his career crash on the shoals of believing the Wall Street Journal editorial page on immigration now, we have an admittedly nontraditional candidate running for president in Donald Trump. I don't think American said I liked him on the apprentice, let's put him in the. No. He was the only one who was saying the stuff we've wanted to here for thirty years. Saying about there are few politicians who crashed on the shoals of anti immigration platforms. How about Pete Wilson who ran for? Okay. Look what happened in California in the last since he ran how about your friends. Okay. So look out for. Single state Republican in decades. Now Democrats have won gone for a democrat by flex percentage points. That's take because it's one of those things that just get says over and over and over again when all of the obvious manifest facts are completely the opposite Wilson was losing reelection. He was down. He was less popular in Orange County than the democrat at that point. He ties himself with titanium cords to what was the proposition two. Oh, nine one, number whatever, it was that would deny welfare to illegal aliens, which passed in the state of California majority of Asians majority of blacks majority of whites and the usual amount of Hispanics thirty four percent or something he sales to reelection. Who are Kathleen Brown who was running against him is desperately backpedalling at the last minute trying to denounce whatever the name of the proposition was now how did that get overturned because there was a popular vote because the people vote. Against why. No, well, I know it was a democrat appointed judge and then a new governor came in Gray Davis. It was so popular he got recalled and California did not appeal. The I think it was a Clinton judge saying, oh, no, we find this. And by the way, he was lobbying against it Mexico because they're sending their best because of that illegal aliens poured into California sucked up all the welfare services. And that's why Republican can't be elected. It's not because oh, it succeeded and Hispanics rose up and turn. No, Pete Wilson got more black votes in that election, by the way, Republicans tend not just sweep with the black voters. Then congressional candidates killing it want to kick them all out run. Is your goal kick who all out? People who broke our laws to get here. Yes. How about DACA how about the want them to go? I want them to. A little kids taking here when they were all second just kick them out because at least when we catch Kate Stein lease killer. He doesn't bossa Ligo on MSNBC and say, how dare you not amnesty? They catch a Lali. Lele say hold on DACA. They are on TV. I demand amnesty yesterday there. So Bossie screw. When the vast majority of undocumented immigrants in this overstay, that's not be. It's another one of those lines that just gets repeated absolutely fax now in a much larger. Of a legal immigrant to this country. Overstate? Everything you are told about immigration in the media's ally want the truth with footnotes, it's all in addio Somme orca as explained Inada Llosa Marica and on Bill Maher's show. I mean, even their audience knows by now there are at least fifty sixty million illegal aliens. And that's as of when addio Samarra came out. I there were couple of. I mean, it's been does anyone notice it's been eleven million for thirty years. Now that's weird twenty percent of the whole chain for twenty years. Not one more illegal alien his comp the sixty million million comes from the following. So in two thousand six a couple of Bear Stearns analysts. Oh, you know, how we get everybody gets to eleven million. They take polls, and they ask immigrants are you here illegally? That's the figure everyone is using seriously. That's how they figured out so to Bear Stearns analysts advising people about something important. Unlike the government their money said this is insane. It hasn't been eleven million in two thousand six say it hasn't been eleven million for twenty years. So they look at other things remittances back to Mexico all this money. Twenty five billion get sent by Mexican legal and illegal citizens are immigrants here every year twenty-five Bill. That's how you say. By the way, that Mexico's gonna pay for the how Trump said during his campaign floating Trump. So those remittance they look at the remittances, they look at illegal alien hotspots various places in New Jersey, they look at housing permits. Graduation rates, and it's a long analysis. You may look it up. They've determined in two thousand six that there were I think twenty million maybe they said. No. I haven't finished reshape the word surprise. No every other government study. Poll immigrants and say are you here illegally? Okay. Then no. I haven't finished then to famous Pulitzer prize winning investigative reporters Barlett and Steele spent a year investigating illegal immigration. Also in two thousand six coming out simultaneously one year, they have their own entry in Wikipedia, and they said three million are coming a year that was in two thousand six even if it went down to two one million a year, even if there was a cutback we are up to fifty or sixty million illegal aliens. And and look every government study and serious study has said that's not an excuse me that undocumented immigrants to this country have no higher rate of crime than any other group of Americans. What you doing? What you do in audio Samarra? Is you do your next searches looking for illegals who have committed crimes and you stack up your anecdotes? Yeah. That's exactly what you did. I've read the book, and the point is this is such a bogus methodology that you use just use this anecdotal evidence. You could take a series lying. You get back to what I actually could take any ethnic group any subgroup in the United States and do next searches and find that they've engaged in crime all the Jews on Wall Street who have committed insider trading abuses. Why don't we crack down on the Jews on Wall Street or even better all the wasps in Greenwich? Connecticut, go to the crunch walkie get drunk and then engaged in DWI is in gang. Long responded without. Connecticut. No, it's the same methodology Coulter is now methodology. That would be a very good point. If that's what I did. Absolutely. Not what I do is. You will read at the beginning. This is you're saying there's some grave not true. But would have been a fantastic response. If that's what I did. And what I did what I did. And you can read it very clearly as I said, well, the government is hiding the information on how many immigrants are in prison. I looked and I looked and I looked, but I spent a long time looking for some kind of report how many why don't we know? We know how many Samoans have battery powered radios. The census information collects information on how many people have stair railings that are broken whether you have mold in your shower, but they can't count in prisons where you had a lot of contact with government officials policemen judges parole officers the prison guards, they refused to count. How many immigrants? Spiracy that has gone back. Still talking still talking responding to his lie about what my book does. So I go through your book, you skip the chapter where I say, they will not tell us. They will not tell us this is very suspicious. Concealing? I don't know why Donald Trump has an ordered them to finally counted up because it's bearing now why do I go through various sex crimes in the book, especially sex crimes and other mergers and someone's over that doesn't illustrate who's committing the crimes it's to illustrate how the media hides floor example, there was a vicious gang rape. More to little fourteen year old girls were killed in Texas. Huge massive news in Texas gets covered in all of the papers. It was a horrible sickening crime. They beat them up. There were like fourteen and fifteen year old very pretty girls. It was an awful case in the entire Nexis archives. And there were hundreds of articles about this rape. It was not until the leader of the ring was sentenced to death, and he appeals his case to because he wasn't an American citizen. He was an illegal alien the first time the word Mexican was ever. Put an article point my point is you say governments conspiracy not. Tell us with the immigrants are well, I can prove there's a media conspiracy. Your book, you allege a government conspiracy not to reveal immigrant crime. Right. And I'm just asking will you can tell tell us outside. It's crazy. But why don't they say conspiracy theory steer C, which is you know, a legal term. I just wanted to know. Here's my. Now, I'm talk. So is this a just want to know is this a conspiracy a government conspiracy that goes back to the George W Bush administration the Clinton administration, the George H W Bush the Reagan administration is this a bipartisan conspiracy to conceal fam- really go back to the Reagan administration because we didn't have so many immigrants here that. Amnesty. No. But it I mean from sixteen o four until around nineteen a country that was nice. This conspiracy. Ten percent black few percent other. So no a lot intil the eighties really nineties when the immigration of the third world here really went into overdrive. I go through line by line New York Times article on a mum, gang, rape and California. And they're talking about, you know, for turn ity rapes. You would have no idea reading this article. Then it was I'm sorry. That's weird. So you can try to make it sound crazy by calling it a conspiracy. But why won't the New York Times tell us when they're saying oh could happen anywhere. It could happen by that. Football reminds me of fraternity rape ones without ever mentioning was. There was among immigrants gang raping little girls. A long major article never uses the word mung, hundreds of articles on nexus on illegal aliens from Mexico gang-raping these little girls in Texas and murdering them never mentioning Mexico. Mexican because we're all about that. Because we're all protecting. We're all protect. Okay. So why why do you think that's going? We'll wide on an interesting fact, what it's interesting to talk about fraternity rapes in one were reporting on among I'm just waiting for the president will have the victims of DWI's by wasps in Greenwich, sitting in the state of the union, you're missing Greenwich. Somebody here. I notice. Wait, I want to conclude it with one point. I noticed that only one side is calling for the government to count which how many immigrants are in prison, and what they're in prison for whether they're legal or illegal only only my side says, hey, could you count? I notice all these Bs studies. None or no we're going to estimate in a an Coulter administration because I hear you might be running for president just to get it on the record. Donald Trump doesn't do this. And you become president. You're going to do it because you're going to order the military to do it. And you have to do that. Trump's going to do that. I think he's finally going to pull that pocket constitution out of his out of his lapel pocket. I gosh, I'm the president. And it's great. And and if he does not should he be challenged by in a Republican primary. I think he will be actually I think it doesn't matter. What do you mean? It doesn't matter. He's gonna lose if he doesn't. Well. All right. But if going on a primary challenger to President Trump in twenty twenty. Public and build the wall and Ankara tabbies. Dreamers. If he does not I think, I'm pretty sure there will be a primary challenge aren't it's not going to be Jeff flake is there a flipping from your side. Who you think Steve kings president who who who do you want terrific? I think we should also he should Mel Brooks. Oh, the one who should be the Senator from Alabama instead of Doug Jones. But it Jared boy said no endorse Luther strange. He's huge in Alabama. It'll be great. And we ended up with what's his name Jones. No judge ROY Moore thought, Johnny. Bannon was campaigning. Well, only because boy Jarod told Trump to endorse Luther strange who by the way was appointed by that utterly corrupt governor. To wrap this up. If the wall is not built if we don't get if you don't get it would support a Republican conservative anti immigrant primary challenger to Donald Trump. Yes, or no. It's a hypothetical wall routes, very real. I think there will be challenges. If that happens, I think there will be tryouts. But yeah, we'll say given all your criticism of Trump for breaking his promise and not doing well one thing that was the centerpiece of his campaign if eighteen months from now he hasn't done it or year from now, wouldn't you support? Well, I'm not confronting broken yet. I'm just reminding him. Doesn't f- Bill it. This will be very big broken promise. And look as you guys know, but no one in the White House seems to now Republican presidents have kind of history of making big promises getting elected on those promises and then portraying their promise, and it doesn't end.

The All New Dennis Miller Option

S2 E63: Ann Coulter on Trump and Democratic Presidential Hopefuls

"This is Dennis Miller option your source of opinion stories and laughs from comedian and inactivates Dennis Miller and his Guy Friday right eight Christian Blat what's up Hiroshi. Let's light this candle ladies and Gentleman Dennis Nore. Hey folks joining us now. Ann Culture Her latest book is resistance is futile trumpeting left lost its collective mind. Her website is ANN COULTER DOT COM. You can follow her on twitter at Ann Coulter Anne. Welcome to the show and you've been thanks. How are you good to hear you yeah. I haven't talked to you in ages and I'm wondering where do you. I can't quite figure where you stand with trump. Do you hate trump or do you just disappointed in or were you well. I can tell you the next trump is going to be Chris Coe back. Who is has all of trump's good parts without the bad parts. He'd actually do it. you know you were around. New York. Saturday night live at it occurred to me it recently. trump is like Ed Koch remember he'd say great things. He denounced the liberal media. He'd say he hoped this or that. Reporter about mugs dogs pretended to be really tough on crime but really nothing ever ever changed. The motto of the city was no radio signs in the doors and then and of course thinking and then Yeah Juliana came along and actually did the stuff that that most people have been begging some executive do due forever from you know James Q Wilson's book. He actually did stuff without taunting reporters. I mean reporters hate them hated him. Don't get me wrong long but he actually did. What what everyone said couldn't be done? We we get the talk from trump. His campaign was fabulous. I did right and trump we trust and I'd ride it again because he was the the only one of the things we wanted said but he just hasn't done it so whether it's another term of trump or or one of those lunatics takes on the stage last night keep your eye on Crisco back. He's I noticed some differences under trump. Maybe I'm live in in a bubble or I'm naive and I are granted. I don't read as much as some people do about politics because I find it so disheartening but from as a layman I think I noticed some things under trump that are different than Oklahoma on for you know absolutely but not not enough to to save the country which is what I was hoping for and and not the crucial promise. He made every day for seventeen months about building well. I mean if we don't do anything about immigration. We lose everything thing those those. I I totally agree with what you were saying on about that debate last night I it's like it's a different country. They WANNA get rid of the second amendment. They want onto Have have you know Cuba's healthcare system there. Were there were a few exceptions. and Biden is still leading in the polls right now. I'm I'm rooting for the most sane of the Democrats which isn't saying much for one thing to put pressure on trump. Yeah I mean if you WanNa give him a scare so he'll fulfill his promises but also I think trump will will win reelection if I had to make a bet. Incumbents usually usually do but. I don't think it's a slam dunk. I can see him. Losing to the Democrats aren't GonNa get get caught sleeping this time and oh my gosh can can you imagine if it were well. I mean Biden is going to be employing a lot of the same people that Warren or Sanders Castro or the rest of them would but by alien large he is. He is much more of a moderate Democrat as Amy Klobuchar Char but I think we're GONNA get the country save. This time I mean it really is amazing using the things these these Democratic voters certainly if it's not a slam dunk and I know how disappointed John Trump. You must be okay with that. Is there any point that you would vote for the Democrat if it was if it was one of these moderates that you isolate club Char Biden and I like I said I can sense. I'm not trying to be I am. You're my friend. I'm just saying I know you're serious woman. You signed super disappointed pointed at him and you thought he'd say the country and he's not in your eyes. I think there's a chance they'll be four hundred and fifty miles wall next year but I can't wait to hugh things things that would that's the best thing he could do for his reelection. I would only consider voting for Klobuchar Biden next year four hundred miles. No I look look at this cast of Democrats and sit back and think. I can't believe that they're gonNa make me vote for trump. They're gonNa make me vote for trump you know of course you couldn't vote for these people all all right well listen. I happen to delight and some of his more egregious behavior on social media I I. I don't Chuck Todd and think Oh my God. You can't go after Chuck Todd. He's he's iota. I I think these people are completely self absorbed morons to a large degree. There's a couple. I don't understand Stan who I know and I think you're right. I think Jake Tapper is bright guy but I guess Jake realizes he's not going to be the main guy at CNN and make five seven million a year if he doesn't adhered all this stuff up so I can see him couching it in some way that he keeps his Gig. I understand that but I love the trump is a bull in China clubs. I guess some of his is obvious moments as far as the press goes and he says some things I don't understand about individuals but when he rips the press up I can't get enough. No I like is tweeting everything. Everything liberals think are the the disqualifies. I'd make him head of the RNC's. Do all of the tweeting for us talking. He's fantastic it just WANNA come when it comes to doing that stuff he hasn't been doing it. He hasn't surrounded himself with people who wanted to get it done. He's surrounded himself with never trumpers and people who oppose his agenda and RNC flax. I mean I really thought election night. Not only were we going to get trump but the rest of these Republicans in Washington would wake up and see I how many different ways can can the public express. We want no illegal illegal immigration. We want a lot less regular immigration you would think that that Republicans would see oh my gosh. This is the way to get Iraq elected. Ah and I don't need to raise all this money from the donors because you don't need TV advertising. Those are the two main lessons. I wish Republicans have learned but I mean I know the only the only way I could figure out right now for Mitch McConnell and people like that to favor. Some sort of security at the southern border is a preemptive naturalization. Process is where we go over to Mexico naturalized citizens. There may be some who don't even WanNa be naturalized so that they're American citizens so when they come back here they're not treated as well as illegal wayland. That's it. It's a counter intuitive. Gesture might be the only one that works. Hey let's go through that TAT tween Cantina Tina Freak show last night figure out. Let's isolate on some individuals Fidel Castro at fonder feelings for America Than Julian Castro and by the way took a bad run it by and it's like Solazzo in the Godfather. If you're going to take out the dodd and you gotTa make sure you take them out and Castro Castro and after Biden and the one he said two minutes ago and he fucked that up because he hadn't said that two minutes ago so Castro took a shot. I think he's dead. Now your thoughts about the Castro I totally agree with that though I kind of thought so for his performance in the first debate when he bravely came out for for abortions for transgenders if I were trump I would run that as my ads showing the other Democrats on the stage and I might add the moderators not bursting out laughing laughing so so now the official position of the Democratic Party is that they are for magical abortions out of your way. I'm sorry a bit before you move on from that. I just have to say I heard that and I thought Jesus Christ. This is how interwoven baked in the cake it is that they had the he had to talk about truth transgendered abortions and you can just imagine him backstage before the debate. Watch sure this watch this. This is GonNa be so cool and yeah it was it was it was not only mean the way he went after Biden. It was just so painfully hacky okay. You got your little snippy line in there arguably it wasn't that great but nobody nobody would have particularly noticed. You would have gotten the job but he repeated four thinking. It was quite a genius line. You said that five minutes ago you said never two minutes ago. You said that two minutes ago. Hey you know what you forgot. What you said two minutes ago and you forgot what you said. Okay we heard the first time just looked at it and said hey pal else zip it. It was eight minutes ago. Now on the fourth time would list you know. The the crazy thing is that people are applauding this. This is how honest to God in there are times I watch I watched around an hour half of that because we have to talk about it on the podcast at the end under the hour and a half. I thought all is lost and and listen when I look at trump. Do I think I'm not GonNa do this. Caveat where I think trump's an evil manner honor that I think he's doing the best he can. I think he's a buffoon in many ways but I thought he was a buffoon when he hosted the apprentice much less hosted the country so they're parts of them. I don't get but I'm telling you he is the last male station that the titanic has to hit before it crosses that Burke out at sea he is the only thing slowing down and maybe leading US doggy paddle a little to figure out what the fuck is the next move because those people were Lunatic Star Chamber last night. Yes I also liked. I mean we've heard him say it before of late but Beta coming out confiscation of all guns and particularly I think it was David Muir Moore who asked the question now you say you would take guns away from people and not voluntarily but but but come and take them now some are calling calling that confiscation yeah like Murugan Webster the authors of Dictionaries native native English speakers who yes that is confiscation. It's not some crazy term right wingers. They're gonNA call this confiscation. Yes he's coming out for compensation. He's proud of the audience applauded. I mean this is like I say everything. Everything's determined by immigration whenever polls are taken a lot of American freedoms free speech for example the right to bear arms other countries don't have these rights it takes a few generations on rations to get used to this to see the benefits of it to see why this created such a great country and immigrants overwhelmingly all immigrants legal illegal. We'll Asian Hispanic. Whatever they they impose? They are not interested in the first amendment. They are not interested in the second amendment so that's how I mean this is what Democrats Democrats have been predicting and rooting for for quite a while now Stanley Greenberg as another book with the same theme total democratic hegemony any in this country. We just need a few more immigrants. we're talking to. Ann Coulter whose latest book is resistance is futile how the trump hating left has lost its collective mind keyword there being collective He has a low travelers.

Excuse me while I kiss the Sky I with my bag free is I'm amazed that once when they need you the the ability to gloss over things as they find candidate who they feel that I've always been amazed with this in the democratic side. I always looked at Bill Clinton cheese. All he has to do is the green light abortions and he's thought to be pro woman and in every other aspect of his life including the treatment of his wife. I always thought boy. He just doesn't seem like a pro woman and guide me. I look at two people on that stage last night and I'm thinking of Amy Klobuchar. She's going to be out there talking about how she's fair and she has traditional values news and one of them which I guess oppression in the workplace. God that's such a big issue for them and it seems to me that she was you know horribly guilty of this stuff but they'll gloss over that for her and you know I'm. I'm just amazed that they in an effort to find their candidate handed that they will look over things that are quite frankly the planks in their platform. Oh Yes oh yes they. They will come around but A- as indicated by by the title of my my book how they left subtitle how the left lost its collective mind. I I mean I do think for an incoming. Even trump has vulnerabilities. He hasn't kept his me major campaign promises. A lot of people voted for him who haven't voted voted for Obama. The last two elections who haven't voted did it all for thirty years because finally they could vote on this collection of issues bringing back manufacturing you know the trade deals most of all of of course immigration and building the wall you have a vulnerable candidate but Democrats react in instead of by just being normal. Democrats switch you know in a lot of ways I personally think is quite bad enough. No they have to be the opposite of whatever trump is I mean recently on the immigration issue Frank Bruni op ED writer of the New York Times Thomas Friedman critic. I think many who else was saying recently. I just read it yesterday. You see see this all the time with liberal very liberal writers begging the Democrats to stop being for open borders saying this is crazy. Why are you taking this position. We're supposed to be the party of the Little Guy. This is never been the Democrats position but trump is on one side. Even though he hasn't done it they could attack him by saying I WANNA protect checked the working class. That's why all bill the wall on like brother. No No. They're going to take the position he wants to build. The Wall hasn't done it but we will there for beef for open borders and I really think that's that's I mean that's what if trump is reelected. What's going to get them reelected. How completely crazy they are on the other side. God well then it would seem to be diverted energy in the next fifteen months to but then again it may I listen. I you know I always tell you I think you're one of our funniest columnists in addition to being pressing on certain things I I always think God. I guess it's Showbiz to some degree but I like I said I had big problems with trump when I watch that last night and and big problems with personally mostly. I'm not Hubris guy got. He is the the center of the hubris universe but when I watched that last night I thank you know I'm not gonNA divert much energy over the next fifteen months any one of those people look like deep trouble to me and if trump does erect only one hundred miles offense next whoever whoever that is the next day rips it down literally think about that. We'll rip it down so it's no choice is it. I mean I look at trump is some unwieldy. sorta sort of clotting godsend. Who at this point in history is the only one who can stand up to this. tell me about this cat that you name. Does he is. He have complete applete rhinos skin this Chris Kovac because you know when it gets in there it's going to be as kids are bad. He's Hitler. He wants to kill babies as the up to that think about that that trump's the only one I can see out there. WHO's up to the sort of hate? He indoors on a day-to-day basis. Yes Kovac definitely is I mean he. He's the one on who designed e verify. He wrote the what liberals denounced the papers. Please law in Arizona. He's Harvard Yale Oxford and and unlike trump I mean I think part of the hatred coming for trump. It isn't all about the issues because like I say a lot of the issues. The left is attacking in trump like protecting the working class by cutting back on low wage immigration sanders position in two thousand sixteen. You don't have to go back to the you know the eighties or or when this was before left physician to care about the working class in America but I do think a lot of what I actually found appealing about trump purpose I describe in and trump we trust is that he's not my cup of tea and personality style as you described the the brashness the nouveau riche the vulgarity and okay. I want to go on and on about this but I think that was appealing because we've tried elegant politicians. Sion's and they promised us a reduction immigration and bringing manufacturing back and putting Americans I promise that and we've been betrayed betrayed right betrayed so the fact that trump was completely outside of the political world didn't seem to care what the fancy people said didn't seem to want to be liked by the New York Times in the the NPR an NPR crowd made his promises more believable but but what I think drives is that a lot of the hatred is that the New York Times setting the NPR's just find him so vulgar and no co back has none of that I mean he. He never gives an inch but he doesn't come across. He comes across an aviary friendly way soccer moms though eat them align live look at Romney honest to God. I think the vulgarity wh what was the barbarian at the gates vulgarity at the gates is trump and I think at some point people actually think as much as they wade into him. I think some people think do I WANNA get in that guys crosshairs because that's like ended up on Glenn Beck's chalkboard life becomes really really fucking weird so good for trump for laying that thing down and you know trump's never going to get any credit. I look at these people last night talking about Kamala Harris up there after putting people in jail for selling pot in the bay area so she looked like Curtis Lemay trump goes in late last last year signs this bipartisan criminal justice bill that she she would aspire to I if she ran for president he's actually signed and all they do is talk about out. He's the grim reaper as far as putting people for pot crimes in and she actually did it and I think this world is flipped upside down. He's got enough people who hate him on a day to day basis. I'll shake my head when he deserves it for being rude or something like that but man. He's the last man standing I look at him. It's like it's like you look up and fess. Parker swinging in a musket on the Alamo and he might be a rude cat but man. Nobody else could CRISCO vouch. I'll read more. I'll read more about him. also on that criminal justice reform that brilliant idea of jared's this is like less than one thousand eight hundred fifty two on how you can never appease the laughed aft- you just end up pushing bad policies that you'll get no credit for at all anyway the example in the Bush era whereas tax cuts and remember it was like bragging to the New York Times about how millions of Americans wouldn't have to pay taxes at all. We've just knocked them right off the tax rolls well you know credit from the New York Times for that and and be you've now made the tax issue not a winning issue for the Republicans anymore because not enough people pay taxes the Caroli- their taxes are and it's the same thing with jared throwing criminals out of prison. Did he get any credit for that. Will he get any credit from people. He shouldn't be seeking credit from well but they're going to be a lot of criminals on the street. Well I think in a complete goat fuck. These people have acquitted themselves about as well as they could not perfectly but man. I've never seen anybody anybody under fire like this since Christ Dresden. Probably we're talking. Ann Coulter Resistance is futile how the trumpeting left has lost its collective mind. Wouldn't it be nice if search engines and social media sites were unbiased platforms that didn't choose aside politically keep dreaming in in two thousand and sixteen the tech elites Google bragged about donating millions of dollars to Hillary these big tech companies that push their political agenda and restrict the free speech rights of Conservatives of the very same corporations.

I know you're candid person and you you speak your mind and let the chips fall but do you ever when something comes out about trump trump written by you does it Matt on those people that they probably are really happy about. This bothered are not things they are. I don't think they are because I'm attacking him. From the right I have a rule never attacked from the left. I also generally won't Attack Republicans unless they start running for president but Allen and their their their responses to pretend and doesn't exist I because to point out. No that would be what they care. Most about is destroying the United States of America. destroying trump trump is it is very very secondary to that and lastly. I JUST WANNA ask Jay have a lots. It's the opposite of a dream scenario the nightmare scenario Mario but I say this to people they look at nuts. I've just shut up. I think that Biden's just going to he's he's losing heat tiles like John Glenn's space capsule coming back into the atmosphere lose. I mean it's like Monty Python's night at this point so I don't know he's GonNa make it across. That's the finish line because ironically finished at this point but I think it Elizabeth Warren is just too flat out socialist as is Bernie. I have a theory read. The cavalry is coming in. It's going to be Hillary. Clinton your thoughts really I think she has physical stamina and I don't think she showed as well. I think people have said to her. If you want to run this time you should just stay out of the way and let this circular firing squad do each other and then jump in at the last moment and do it reluctantly. Bentley say I am drawn to this only because my country and my party needs me. You don't have to campaign you you jump in at the last minute and you look like the noble one who's summoned to the task as opposed to exploiting the I am one hundred percents sure you are right that. That's what she's thinking i. I don't think the Democrats would have. They hate her about seconds to Donald Trump. I think that I mean that's part of the reason it trump is facing a tougher a tougher electorate this time. Democrats won't be caused leaving. There have to be a lot of Democrats who thought It's a pain to vote. I have to get up early before I go to work. She's GonNa win in anyway. I'll just say I voted okay. That will not be happening in twenty twenty. You do have some many disappointed trump voters. I think the Democrats are gonNA scare them to the polls. you also have trump well jared releasing all the criminals who are now registering to vote and contrary to what jared believes they are not most of them will not be registering as Republicans same thing with all of the immigrants that trump has deported for this reason or that reason and their anger babies turning eighteen in voting it would be ironic if he lost Texas and Florida by precise number of of illegals he did not deport or the felons that that jared released but that would be good. They really hate the Democrats at the point. Is the Democrats Really Hillary for losing that election. They know she was a bad candidate so I want totally believe. She's sitting home plotting thinking Haha. Did you see how Biden last night Boren. She's no match for me. Hey but but right now looks like it's going to be Biden if he fades who knows it sort of depends on where the African American goes. He's he's faded already. The that's the odd thing. I at some point trundling him out. It's going to start looking in you main platform humanity I yeah I think it's some point they're going to have to replace. Biden with the little climatology girl who soon just sailed over here on the kon-tiki or an was but some start. This stuff starts to look abusive at some. I don't think Biden's are GONNA make it. I think Elizabeth Warren once again one of those people I referred to earlier where Ella Amy Klobuchar in the workplace using oppressive matters with but she's given she's vouchsafed and I look at Elizabeth Warren what is bigger than on on the left right now than identity politics literally at one point she prepared some sort of Iroquois Gazpacho for cookbook so she could be hired as the minority studies person at Harvard and she's not GonNa pay for it. It's unbelievable to become one of the most unbelievable cheating eating affirmative action yeah and she she gets like I said and at this point when I looked at that stage last night I thought they might run a four headed hydra that appeases appeases all the factions over there you could run the Cory Booker and get your black vote. Wang and get your Asian vote the the Castro Guy and get your what is he Christian Italian or smashed hard. It's hard to tell the difference these days but he would he would definitely bring the Hispanic vote for sure and then get your Kamala Ella Harris to get the blowzy tavern all right good to talk to your life's good you happy. Everything's great all right. I hope to see you soon. I haven't seen it in a lot. I know bye bye. Thank you bye. Don't get the well like I said I don't see and at the end but I think that's commerce right which part of mantra yeah I mean. I think I would say that. She knows that those people last night on hinged I think she's legitimately disappointed in him but he the she even said she would never vote for any any of them. Okay yeah she. It seems to me to be the but like I said she writes a column. Yes she's got fifteen months where she's gotta fill call space right so I get that but if you weren't writing that column it just seems seems like wasted energy to draw on and on about trump listen trump on his worst day about the border quite frankly so Vado Arocca said studied tear the border died. I don't understand the whole gun confiscation thing and believe me. I'm as conflicted about gun. Violence in this country is anybody should be but I can't imagine a accelerate more for gun violence than going door to door and trying to get got against people's People's wills you can save voluntary all you volunteer is voluntary and at some point and say you WanNa volunteering's say knowing that you know it's like mark. Mark Levin always makes me go ahead. That keeps saying no to them. Eventually guy shows up at your door and you'll notice he's got a gun just true and that's GonNa really ugly. It's not gonNA be Ruby Rich. That's going to be Ruby Ruby Rocky mountain range. That's going to be the continental divide whatever's bigger than Ar fifteen or AK forty seven. They're going to have a couple of those. You know but it's still gonNA be. There's GonNa be a lot I I would. Let's say that takes two years minimally four years maximum like how many gun deaths a year in this country. If that's the case no because you know there's some people listen to I I try to look at people who have no power in the culture and and how they exhibit their power and it's an odd thing to say but I used to live in studio city and there was a guy who used to cross Ventura Boulevard homeless guy due to the pretty precise laws in California about people crossing even not in a crosswalk both all four lanes of venture boulevard had the shutdown and this guy would take his time I saw them. I don't exaggerate this but I was down there every day of my life for years and years. I probably signed three times over the course of those years because you know homeless people ironically seem to set up shop and one homeless place you know that's their homeless sweet homeless Melissa whatever where you know he was a repeat customer over the years and he would scroll across and he would shut the whole thing and I could see this look on myspace rethought boy. This is the only time I have the conch shelton his life every other area that walked by me. I could be sitting in my own piss hungry. Nobody cares I could could shut down Ventura Boulevard for lands and so the stroll class was like that home run trot that Philly guy did a few you know it wasn't for the Phillies for somebody. Guy Did a forty two second run trot. Oh yeah you gotTa Milken Yeah Well. This guy would milk it and I know that some people's power is in that gun they keep it in her house they it makes them feel safe and legitimately really in many ways but also just in a figurative sense. They think that's a gun. That's a right that I have and I'm telling you if you start sending that Chuck Heston in the soil and cops to scoop them up so over you're going to have huge gun deaths so when they preach nonviolence on violence and the way to do that as confiscate guns. I I'd always creeps me out when absolute is don't view the segue ground you you know the yeah. Maybe you get to that. there's a long fallow woodland long street at Gettysburg called the wheatfield. There's a long we'd fill between you and that low slung wall and believe me it is going to be Crimson with the blood of people who are not willing to give up what what in many ways comprises their identity to them so I would rethink that drink as we used to say in the vodka advertisement business.

We have voicemail number nine David from Maryland. I just wanted to thank you for almost running off the road yesterday. Driving home from work the segment with you talking about the therapy terrorists and when Lindsay crack right before that about not measuring horses in your hands blew me away and also wanted to give a shout out to Christian doing for doing great work in the podcast every chance I get and I must admit I was a little bummed when Salman left the radio show back in the day the Christian you come on strong started on strong right off but you're getting stronger and stronger time goes on and I'm going to have to check out your own black class so so thank you all for making my day almost every chance I get to listen to you almost get into a car wreck so thank you best ones ever received saved Christian. You should do a secondary. Were you talk about nothing but sausage. It's called the broadcast. It's not that different than the actual black casts don't want to see the the conversational sausage made over while I it was very sweet and thank you for listening and by the way I was. I couldn't say I was a humble brag. SORTA thing where I I must say I was heartened disillusion to find out that Bartlett's quotations was including Lindsay's excoriating the size of my hand the new issue I got a text from our friend gene in Philly who he couldn't believe that when you heard it. He's like what good for her that. She was comfortable enough to insult well Geez. Have I ever been but insolvable on any of my outlets. It's like she's part of the team now. Once you've insulted the boss. Do you think it would be other things in life that don't quite add up. Would it be declined to go on stub hub and use your the alias of Ahab to sell tickets stub end. Would it be bad form in Bartlett's quotations say apples or the best fruit. It's and Linda confused because they're they're pairs candy. I think Oh Deep Hath Lot. It was that funny that he would actually was it always a bit or somewhere else to fit right. Yeah I would sit there. Withdrawn Short swelled who ends up sort of the father confessor at the Simpsons and George Handy who had that amazing have you ever seen. It's like the Jerry Lewis talk show that only lasted for a week with tissues out right yeah it with like Harry Harry Councils the football guy there was a guy named a comedian named callous and the he was charlie account was only Charlie cap on for a week and it was legendary and I think George Handy only put out two to four issues of something called toy soldier if a red though I have not no go back and see if you can buy them somewhere they were like a quarterly thing he'd put together humor and put it this way deep thoughts would have been the least existential outlined piece in the entire thing I mean the humor was so funny. It was like National Lampoon. If it had been run by you know existential as opposed to humorous truly great stuff I think it was called toy soldier it but at there's a picture of a green army men on the cover any who give me another one. Let's go for a voicemail number seven Aaron from Wyoming just join join a beautiful sunset here. just wanted to call and say I love your show. I love your take on old movies and food and travel and everything you guys talk about their in the show. I had a quick question for you today you and Christian. We're talking about your Mount Rushmore. I wanted to get your top four films of all time also wanted to recommend an old Brando Nicholson film called the Missouri breaks kind of a Good Western movie as you've probably seen yeah but if you haven't give it a tumble as you always say anyways keep up the good work. I really appreciate your show well. Let's see I would have to obviously eh for many years. It's been Lawrence of Arabia is the best film I then have to say to kill a mockingbird the men suren candidate and it's crazy to pick four films obviously got a lot more than that sure and I must say I enjoy gone with the wind uproariously whenever I see that on them very happy and I know people I listen. I don't hate black. People got to qualify this everything thing now I like gone with the wind find old movie up that time nineteen thirty nine and so I would pick those four and I'm sure you could talk to me and outside Lawrence Arabia Arabia ten minutes and mentioned a few and another four. Sorry you said Lawrence of Arabia. Tequila mockingbird gone with the Wind Manchurian candidate. Thank you sorry I just WanNa make sure I get this okay. That's what's next Christian. Let's go with the voicemail number eight imagine sending I'm Josh Gordon and to Talk Antonio Brown don her hijack. It's like having to remember Jerry. Garcia said he once was a sponsor and certainly I'm sure that was it's a heartfelt endeavor but there must be a moment of irony when the guy calls in cases by a sponsor. Jerry my NA sponsor most of the moment where everybody says well. That's true but it's funny. It reminds me of an original will cast. SNL sketches where Dan ackroyd is Jimmy Carter and he's taking calls and it somehow turns into kids who've taken the wrong combination pills. Dell's and then he helps talk them down and figure out how they're going to be okay I in in character as Jimmy Carter I so feel about this the other night ironically they said it's Sidney Poitier Month on Turner Classic Movies and There's one maybe even talked about previous podcast but there was was one the other night where he played a suicide hotline guy and he was talking that telly Savalas was he played sort of a cop you know he's a sort of worked right off Kojak and a begrudging or off Sydney pointy grudging way and then at the end gave him the tip of the hat because they saved and Bancroft to eat and a handful of pills because quite frankly she was in the rack with Melanie wouldn't shut the fuck up. She had a lot of Benny's I remember is the big ones. I don't even know if you were there Christian remember. I just did this one. I knew I was starting to fall favorite Hollywood. I did a critics award down in Santa. Monica and I sorta died. I said you know I almost didn't make it here tonight. The the traffic in the illegal alien lane on the four. Oh five it. was you know it was like a politically ensure. They all started moaning. Remember George Clooney Don Front looking at me shaking his head like I was the horrid man so I I sort of died and I do remember that there was a great moment. When I was backstage I was just feeling I'm not as bulletproof for some pretty bulletproof but the you know when when you dying in front of a crowd your hard drive comedian steps in and I just remember a steady backstage in a very loaded Philip Seymour Hoffman came up. I thought these people it means more to me than me. He was Catherine Keener and they were both long Fox out there so that that was a big big thrill. Let's squeeze in a couple more voicemails number eight Dave from Pittsburgh. Listen Shashi. My wife and high transplant fled here after he retired from the military so I do to put some money away for the grandkids inside their day. I got a customer and typically like a customer. Mer like in from the airport I do the whole usual word to go Pittsburgh what to see that go through the litany of the WHO's who is some Pittsburgh I usually you start with you and friend Gordon so yesterday during I listening to your podcast with John Lennon.

'Valentine's Views' podcast: Draft prospects, Isaiah Coulter, Brandon Polk join the show

"Are you troubled by strange hockey? Traces the middle of the night. Do you experienced feelings of dread about NHL Free Agency. Have you or your family ever seen at New York islanders game? If the answer's yes don't wait another minute. Pick up your mobile devices. Describe to Lighthouse Hockey podcasts. From espy nation today are courteous and efficient hosts are ready to serve. All of your islander needs and worries lighthouse hockey podcasts for New York islanders fans hello giants fans and welcome back to the Valentine's views podcast here on big blue view radio part of your SP nation family podcasts. I'm your host Ed Valentine of Big Blue View. Still Lots to talk about in regards to reviewing free agency with your New York giants. But today's show is going to have an NFL draft focused to it. Going to have a couple of interviews for you with a couple of wide receiver prospects. Wide Receiver is of course a somewhat underrated. Need four your giants who have Golden Tate Sterling Shepard in dairy slayton out at wide receiver but could still use more weapons more targets for second year quarterback Daniel Jones as they try to to build an offense around his talent. Give Him as many weapons as possible to to go. Forward with into his second season would not expect the giants to go wide receiver really early in the draft. Simply they need offensive line help. They need defensive playmakers. They need help in other areas so I would not anticipate wide receiver being in a first round pick for the giants or a second round pick but perhaps in the middle of the draft round three round four anywhere through around seven. You could see. The giants look to supplement the wide receiving group that they currently have now and both of the players that that were about to talk to our guys who could fit into those areas of the draft will be talking with. Isaiah Coulter of Rhode Island a wide receiver who nfl hall of Famer and current NFL dot com analysts Gil. Brandt is really really enamored with and we'll be talking to brand poke for your. Who went to Penn State and then transferred as a graduate senior to James Madison University and had a really nice season in two thousand nineteen? A both of those players are guys who could be on the radar will get a chance to talk to both of those guys and we'll do that right now up. I will be my interview with Isaiah. Coulter hope you enjoy it? Giants fans joined now by Isaiah Coulter Wide Receiver from Rhode Island and NFL draft hopeful. As we as we approach the the twenty twenty NFL draft. Isaiah thank you very much for joining me today. No problem thanks. Hey so I have to start here as we As we chat I was looking at some information you know about you. Some of your bio and and you're from Brandy Wine Maryland and I'm a A A university of Maryland Grad. So I've got to ask you. You know wh why not the TURPS and how did you end up at Rhode Island I listen I kind of just I kind of floated. The radar is going to go to minicamps And Rhode Island off of my cousin you ever before and I went to one of their camps and they ended up offering me and that kind of just ended up there just by. I got a lot of offers from the schools but I just felt most were down. Just because I've been there and my cousin lives there so it's Kinda okay so so obviously you know in case folks don't know your cousin. I believe is Is Aaron Parker also wide receiver at Rhode Island also prospective draft hopeful? This this time around so I've got to ask. Have you guys got a little a little family competition going on a little? Maybe a little a little side wager on. Who GETS DRAFTED? I got no no wager at this at this point at this moment. But we've bragging back and rights that we kind of both when it gets drafted and We have fees are this That's kind of looking at it. How's that been you know spending the last the last few years playing Basically you know playing the same position you know. Play playing alongside your cousin. Basically that been an enjoyable experience for you. Yeah of course we You can't I I can't describe it on It's been amazing this Watching him do his thing. He watching me do my thing. We feed off each other talk about what we see on the field. This is great. No no little Little I'm better than you rivalry going on there. All none of that. You gotta you gotta you gotTa keep it You gotTA keep it low key in the family. You know you can't you can't be causing any any family squabbles. There can you gotta you gotTa give it to you all right. So what so? I've got to ask you I read. I read a quote that I don't know if you have seen from from Gil Brandt the hall of Famer and former Dallas cowboys executive. I read a quote about you. I don't know if you're familiar with Isaiah I'm not sure you let me let me read it to you. Let me actually read it to you and I just want to get your reaction. Obviously Brandon was a personnel guy for the Dallas cowboys for a long time. He's and he's You know and it's still. Nfl analyst at this point and this is what he said to Peter King recently. He said a talking about you said we're I. He's a guy we're going to be asking about a year from now. Like where did he come from? Why did we miss on him? That I like these guys who come from from a school like Rhode Island with something to prove a. Don't want to put too much pressure on him but he could be the decay metcalf of this draft which all of that is is is high praise You know what? What's your reaction to to a comment like that I'm glad he He turned on my fam- in the saw like in in So like one of those Top guys receives in the UK. Make us Yeah that's crazy that's cool. So what if you were to give us a scouting report on yourself? What what would that sound like We say I'm smooth. I'm the smoothest I run any realm Nutri Need to get stronger. get better with One after the cats and I feel like I have a high seven though the cover things I would have to say. So let me ask you. You know You're coming from the small school at Rhode Island and I I know you were. You were at combine and you got a chance to to show your stuff a little bit and in. Nfl teams have scouted due for a while but with with everything that's going on with NFL teams with their office. Shutdown with pro days shutdown with with scouts. Not traveling to to any of the workouts is that is that a problem for you in terms of of you know not being able to get in front of teams and not being able to to really help them. You know get familiar with you at all. You feel like that's that's an issue for you. Lean into the draft I don't I don't think so On they are now because they can be like phone calls and things like that and My eighty let me know this sort of stuff. He's hand back and he doesn't think it's that big of a problem so I'm not too worried about it kind of just Just keeping safe right now. Just stand ready so I'm not thinking about thinking about it too much. You how you handle. You know all all the prep and you're still able to find places to work out and do all of those things We kind of go into like a local food around my area and She's doing like home homework. I was 'cause Oughta generally close this like body way stuff and just running around staying saving thing short with my route so so fight isn't too too hard but They listen part. You gotta be gotTa Kinda figure it out and decide what you WANNA do but I I feel like I'm making any think about the the NFL draft and and all the pomp and circumstance. That generally goes around it. You know. Obviously that's not going to happen this year. Does that sort of take away a little bit of the excitement. You know about the whole process about the whole thing as as you look forward to it or is it still. Obviously you know it's been something you've wanted for a long time does does that. Not Change the perspective at all I feel like the draft like it's the draft regardless. There's going to be big. It's going to be around it Whether this live like fans there live or Just over on TV with no sense. I feel like It's just an amazing experience just to be a part of it just to watch it so I feel like it's GonNa be Special Anyways. without Stuff going on. I feel like I feel like we needed to just because you're sitting around and things like that for like it'll be good so I wanNA finish up with a little bit of an offbeat question here for you is as when I was at the combine. I had a chance to talk with one of your your Rhode Island teammates with Kyle Murphy. The the offensive lineman. Who's WHO's also hoping to to be drafted here in a few weeks. And when I talked to Kyle I asked him kind of out of left field question and it comes from something that Joe Judge. The giants new head coach said In his introductory press conference he said he wanted to hire guys as coaches on his staff who could teach. He said basically he said. I don't care if they teach me how to make a peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich. I want to know how well they teach so. I'm curious I asked. Kyle this question. Tell me how you would make your absolute best peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich. SOFRES I Got Some got the ready. Definitely bring out the peanut butter and Jelly. Did they get the Nice? Or whatever you use to spray with. And then I'm playing. I'm putting the peanut butter on on the less on the Leverett left on the left bread. And then the Jelly on the right side and then I put a little bit more Jelly. 'cause I like jelly peanut butter. I May I finally get another scoop. Egeli thought on their own on the bed and then I live it over and then I cut it in a as a force into force funny part in. I used to do that to my kids just to just to actually. I used to cut it into little triangles to make it harder for them to eat. The funny part of the funny part about that question is every time I ask it. I'm amazed at at the detail of the guys will go into as far as you know. What slice of bread or what type of bread or which side the the peanut butter goes on. I'm amazed by that it's funny. Yeah you gotTa take say. Hey you know it's Quality sandwiches you know you gotta you gotTa do it right so hey I appreciate your your spending some time with me. Best of luck to you if you If you happen to land with the giants maybe we'll get a chance to work to talk to you again. Okay cool sounds good. Thank you much are from thanks bye? Bye Alright. Our thanks to Isaiah Coulter for spending some time with us. Let's take a brief break here for word from our sponsors and then we'll come back with an interview that I did with James Madison Wide Receiver Brandon Polk giants fans. I'm joined now by James Madison Wide Receiver Brandon Polk. Who is hoping to hear his name called somewhere in the in the latter portion of the upcoming NFL draft Brandon? Thank you very much for joining me today. Yeah thank you very much for having me. So let's Let's talk a little bit about your story in case you know. Our our listeners aren't really familiar. You spent you spent four years at Penn. State had had a year of eligibility left because of a medical redshirt and spent that last year at James Madison University had a really nice year. I think it was seventy three catches became the first James Madison wide receiver to go past a thousand yards in in in receiving yardage. Just tell me a little bit about about how you know. The moving to James Madison came about. And and then we'll we'll talk a little bit about about the increased production as well. Okay yeah so You know my time and I was looking for someone to go Actually had a couple of friends played or that are still play now for James Madison I thought it was just a great fit you know. They threw the ball a lot and his very close to home. I'm only about an hour and forty minutes away. But he's got my parents Could pretty much come to every game that they did come to every game and just you know academics wise. It really good you know. I wanted to make sure I was going to school. Not only just to play football because I am now currently still in the Master's program at the school and just overall like some of the guys There you not I knew in high school so I knew that they were there Just the coaching staff. When I went to I just fell in love with them. We get a master's in by the way Sports and recreational leadership. Nice Nice and I think I also read that There were a couple of of assistant coaches at at James Madison. Who FAMILIAR WITH FROM PENN? State Yeah Coach Smith Who is now with The hokies and coast Jackson was with. Odu actually we're close Lonnie. So those two were there. They were G. as my freshman year At Penn State and they were At James Madison last year. And obviously you know it's a little bit lower level of competition James Madison. You Know Fr from Penn state so you might have expected you know. Some difference in production may be a number of receptions. I think in four years at Penn State you you had twenty seven catches and then as we talked about seventy three catches more than a thousand yards. But I also read that. You said that it wasn't in your mind just competition-related maybe it was maturity and approach and things like that can. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yeah that's the way it was. You know I guess maturity and the way I approached it because I I pretty much knew. My last shot You know had to go out there. I worked hard every day. my pushed me. I pushed down. You know so. We had. We kind of had that goal to get to the the national championship. We got there obviously. We came up short but that was the goal so I I knew what it took to be to be great I've watched many people Saquon Sean Hamilton. Chris Dodd Mal Sanders Trace. Mcsorley might just I just watch those people and saw the work ethic that they that they had and that they were in things that they were willing to do and things they just cut out of their life is. I don't want to do this in order to be great so that was definitely helped me. It was just kind of sit back. Look these guys are where I wanna go in order for me to get to where I want to go? I have to at least take something from each person To move forward. I'm curious about some of those former Penn state guys. There are a few guys that you probably played with Saquon Grant Hayley And you know there's also coach Coach chaos is now with the giants. Yeah would it be? Would it be kind of cool for you to wind up to wind up with the giants? No yeah definitely Sales familiar faces out and just pushing each other and take on and I When he was when I was at Penn State Hammoud says allow competition. Who's fast or who's this who's just push each other. You know kind of every day so it would be. It would be fun to see those guys again. So so. Who is faster on fat? I tell them that every I tell them that every day faceted oh I. I don't know if he wants to hear that he's a pretty competitive guy. I know I felt very awesome. What's your forty and he's he's fast. I'm like wow I'm faster So we'll get you guys out on the field some day off and will prove that. I sold them in college so I'll he backed down. He wouldn't do it when they do it. I can't I don't know but we were talking about it when I don't know we're going to have to ask him about that if you wind up with the giants so so let's actually talk about the whole. You know getting a forty time. You didn't have a combine in but invite you're you're a smaller guy. I think what five nine about one seventy five one eighty and my correct. Yeah about one seventy three thirty four so you have a twenty five okay and so obviously a pro day getting to talk to NFL scouts. You know getting to getting to to show them how fast you are. All of that was important and obviously with the situation going on the you know the the James Madison Pro Day was cancelled. Nfl Scouts aren't traveling. They're not holding any workouts. So how have you been approaching? You know trying to get attention trying to get some videos trying to get something in front of of NFL teams. Yes so it was kind of pretty interesting but you know it kind of all worked out. Obviously you know with the virus. Going around a lot of things were cancelled but you know we. We still found a way. You know kind of get it. Get it done last Wednesday actually down in Georgia a kind of doing a pro day there. We've filmed it We had a former Gm THERE. Ken was a GM. For the Atlanta Falcons Kinda just ran are the forty two three cone. Did everything about that. Mean you could do out of Out of pro day but it was just A film so it was kind of I kind of like the way it was how he did it From the circumstances that we were dealt. I thought it was a really fun experience. Overall that I believe is is former Atlanta Falcons. Gm can hera correct correct. Okay and so what was what was the forty time that That can had you at just so people know can't have any four to eight I. It's pretty Nice did you Did you expect to run that fast? I did I. I wish I rather faster. I did During my training down at XP in Fort Lauderdale Florida. That was the time I was pretty much running consistently nice and I would think that'll get some attention from from. Nfl Scouts in general managers. Yeah Steve as you know always taught told me you know is you're at an you know. Speed is something you can't teach either have it when you don't so give me give me a quick scouting report on yourself on on on what you like to do what you bring to a what you might bring to an NFL roster to an NFL training camp. You know if and when you get the opportunity just you know. Tell people what You what an NFL teams going to get you know an NFL team. Just going to get you know A team player. But as well as a you know a big play Guy Special teams in the punt returner and kick return As well as you know I get my opportunity on offense. You know just creating big plays guy that can you know? Take a bubble screen ninety five instead of house So that's you know what I would tell a teams and you know what they're going to get out of me. He's Kinda difficult. I mean this is looked at as a a really really deep wide receiver class. So obviously you know getting that pro day and getting film. You know it is important. I mean is it kind of a disadvantage for you. Though in such a deep class you know not not being able go and do thirty man visits and visit facilities and workout in front of NFL teams. Now I don't mean as a a disadvantage I kind of like you know the way I would say. Kind of everything When about because you know got more time so you know work on myself and make sure you know? I'm I'm in the top safe that I can be. Obviously you know they can't. They don't see they don't see me right now but I I didn't really see you know them canceling everything as a disadvantage for me. Because you know my my film I feel like I did a really good job this year. I don't think I mean I think that they can see that from my just my transitions and pretty much. The Times that I did at pro Or the pro that I had even though this film that they weren't there. There's some credibility there that it's not just my dad's filming so I I feel like there's a lot of things that you know that we did with the cars that were dealt that you know I don't feel like is a disadvantage. All right. Hey Brandon. I really appreciate you spending some time with me today. Best of luck to you. And if if you wind up with the giants were we're GONNA push for that for that sake. One versus Brandon Forty Yard Dash definitely that favor habit. All right thank you hope. Our thanks to brand pulp for spending some time with us and sharing his story also again to Isaiah Coulter of Rhode Island. Good luck to both of those young men as they look forward to hopefully hearing their names called in the upcoming twenty twenty. Nfl draft giants fans.

Hour 2 Outdoor Dining, Second Wave, & Ann Coulter

"Investor New York Mark Simone on W. The latest on everything I know everything's just seems crazy. Everything just seems out of control. You can't believe you're still in most locked down. I know this face to face. Three just doesn't feel like normal When when we'll straighten out well, we'll get to all of that. the president obviously running for reelection. They will try everything I mean. They will lockdown. The whole country put everybody. Other works grew up the economy. have rioting anything they can do. to get rid of president trump, and if you, it's only July. Wait till October. Who knows what they got planned next locus hurricanes? WHO KNOWS UFO's? Who knows what they're planning next, but there's two tricks they always use. whenever the gotTa take out the popular Republican now one. Is You get somebody in the family to write a book about them? I know with the president trump. They get anybody to write a book about gossip columnist somebody that worked in the White House for two weeks. anybody can say anything bad but they've been doing this all along. You know when Reagan was running for reelection. They got Patty Davis. Do you remember the daughter? Patty Davis wrote a book about awfully was. How evily was? Yeah it's it's an old trick. You could do this in any fan and anti-family take Joe Bartlett for instance. Is there a more likable guy than who could not like Joe Bartlett I guarantee. We went through your entire family of people. We could find some distant relative who doesn't like you? Far? Okay there you go. We don't have to go that far. We could find a cousin or somebody and. Here's a five hundred thousand dollar advance auto. Oh, right book, okay. we'd get a book about Joe. Bartlett is evil. He's abusive. He's this he's. Hey member a Jackie Onassis. had that guy who is that guy was like a distant cousin. Who wrote a couple books about awful. She was how evil she was. It was like some distant cousin who was poor and living in. A homeless shelter in Long Island like this guy, never even matter, but we're suppose he's a blood relative, so you must believe him, so that's trick number one. Get somebody to write this book, and then that just totally brings them down Patty Davis with Reagan Christina to see won in a landslide Problem with the during this on Donald Trump. You've already had forty seven books that all went nowhere did nothing. The other trick they do is they find somebody who cannot be attacked. Somebody who's got something wrong with them You can't attack them. You never attacked a member of the Gold Star family over their names. The cons remember them. Oh Yeah at the convention. Khan and his wife. Terrible story they'd lost a son in the war, but they got up there. And the the convention made a speech denouncing Donald. Trump memory pulled the constitution little booklet of the constitution out of his pocket I. Carry with me. Have you ever even read this? Christmas is an insult to our public schools. He's accusing them of not teaching the constitution to students. of course read it in school, but any never attacked by the way you know, the always hear that attacked a gold star family. Go try to find that attack. There is never he would never attacked a seraphim, but they had a show once where they had them on live. Sunday shows. And for twenty minutes they call him a moron, an idiot of evil thief, Aligarh Critic, everything for twenty minutes from another place, and then they cut to donald trump. Because what is your response? This, is exactly where he goes well. They, don't. They don't know me and That was the attack. That's it so that's all you heard for this. He attacked a gold star. Families Now George. W Bush remember that got that crazy Cindy Sheehan remember her. Oh, sure! Yeah, yeah! She had lost a son in Guess was Iraq when he was running for reelection, and she was a disheveled mess, and she was sleeping in a ditch, look literally lived on the road, camped out on the road by his ranch in Crawford, Texas. She waved signs like a crazy homeless woman. and. They kept trying to get him to attack this. You can't. You are not allowed to answer her. She was calling Bush a murderer killer warmonger, Aligarh. You can't attacker so the current one have come up with Senator Tammy Duckworth now. She fought in. Iraq and she lost two legs She was hit with a bomb. Two legs lost amputated. Double Amputee, so they've they're using her now to attack, the president like crazy. Call him every name in the world and everybody's afraid to say a word you're not allowed to. The substance of what she's saying so finally. Tucker Carlson who came right out and just whatever she was saying. It was just over the top, so Tucker Carlson said she's a moron and she's using her military injuries to silence critics well now. He's getting attacked all over the place. You can't so. This is the other trick Tammy Duckworth and she's got the two artificial legs and You can see them not covered so this is this and they do this all the time. Every finds somebody of victim so vulnerable. that. They can use their whatever tragedy. It was to silence any critic, so it has never again. Democrats always failed play. That's never worked. Cindy, Sheehan didn't work. The Kahn family didn't work. It never works, but they'll try it again. the this is like a one two punch in the same week. This and the Mary trump book. How will he survive? I would get past this I don't know so A. Hate to break, but as it gets near the election. And he's not really behind. These are all rigged fake polls metrics rigged by twelve to fifteen points in all of these public pulses, not really behind, and they know that so if it gets towards October, they're going to have to do something. They're going to try to shut down the whole country again. That's why you keep hearing second wave. A second wave is a second way. They'll pull that second wave and October. We gotta be locked down that way. It'll have to be mail in voting and that way they'll be the ones counting the mail in voting now. You hear all these crazy CNN host. There's never. Never been any evidence of voter fraud. There are people in jail right now. Hundreds of people are sitting in jail right now for voter fraud, this always voter fraud and every major official study of this shows the biggest cause of voter fraud is mail in voting so that they'll try the second wave stuff if you go back to the past. Whenever there was a second wave like in nineteen nineteen, they always pointed that the second wave was much worse than the fruit. Well in every case, the second way was generally caused by terrible mistakes for instance in the nineteen nineteen pandemic, a second way began. World War One was just wrapping up and it it. It affected the troops out in the field. Now here's how the second way of got out of control. They decided what they were thinking. But instead of bringing doctors out to treat the troops, they decide to send the troops into all the cities in the all the hospitals and they sent them on public railroad, so it reinfected. The whole place sounds like Cuomo Move Yeah This is. This is a call Mo- move then he'd have a report coming out saying it was conductors that were infected was not. So again that second waves at generally caused. You could have a second wave erupt. Solar flare there, but you immediately isolate those people and you can stop it easily. In the full they want everything. Shut down. Could you explain this school plan The president's saying schools will reopen Connecticut is now. Schools reopened? Then you get this the Blasi plan? Schools were be reopened, but without classrooms or teachers or students. What was he talking about? What he's saying is you will go to school maybe two or three times a week the other days you will learn remotely from home. What is somehow as a parent? You plan your life around that, but that's the. What is the point of that I mean? What is he thinking that well? Not Likely to catch it on Tuesday or Thursday. We'll go the other days. No No, no, no, it's the idea is to reduce the size of class so that you can keep the kids apart when they're so. You don't have the full class there every single day. I understand what they're saying, but the two that them. His thirty in the class will only have fifteen. You're assuming you pick the fifteen. I'm going to affect everybody the odds of that are just ridiculous. First of all you look at what he did with the police. Police protection in neighborhoods that needed it. The most is causing everybody to get shot. It caused a hundred shootings from what I'm hearing in the police department. It's not a hundred. It's way beyond that and there's a lot of shootings with multiple victims were it's counted as one shooting so trust US numbers even worse than what you're hearing your chart. You're trusting this. Idiot, this moron, who is the most bungling incompetent manager ever can't even handle the police. All you gotTA. Do is tell the police commissioner's tell. The captain's tells commanders. Or give them the go-ahead, so he's going to tell. Schools had operate correctly but it's July. Is it that they have to make the decisions now? They can't wait to the last minute well. You have to get the schools ready. Parents have to be given notice to what the plan for beyond you before you know. Here's the problem another year and a half of this bungling idiot plaza. You could say. Let's get him out of office. Let's remove him. Somehow the problem is if you remove in under New York law. The replacement is the public advocate. Jimani Williams, who's to the left of the BLASIO. And totally nuts. The other person would be the city council Speaker Cory Johnson. who was a real left wing nutjob? What are we GONNA do? All you got is governor Cuomo. You look at him like underneath all that crap. You're smart, normal guy. Your father was Mario. CUOMO, Mark Guy. You're more worldly than these idiots. Step in fix it You know he's busy with his Luckily you know working on those theatrical briefings. How could I get the most attention? How can I look the best of my forget all that just in the end? Get the best results. A. You're playing that clip of Phil, Murphy the Governor Cuomo. Does this all the time? They're bragging about the brilliant things they did in that clip. Murphy says now. We were the first state to require masks here, call. We were the first to do this the first to do it and how come you can't reopen? In new, Jersey can can't reopen. How come you're months behind everybody else? How come Connecticut's Open Lung Islands Open how come you're still close? You were the first you did this. I heard in Connecticut not single death. Note single death yesterday. And you got the big hospitals like several major hospitals. Fairfield county no cases in weeks. And weeks now I'm keeping my eye on long, island? because I noticed in Southampton I've been watching the video of these play close to main street. You know the allow restaurants two tables in the street. As every everybody does, but this is Southampton see these people there. You can't tell them anything. They tables all over the street. Every restaurant is four thousand tables in the street. That's not enough. They put deejays in the middle. People are dancing in and out of the tables I'm looking at the video. Nobody's got a mask on. They're all over each other. Same thing in Nassau County I don't WanNa. Mention any high end, Nassau county places where they have restaurants, but they are packed and everybody is walking around from table to table. Saying hello. They're not wearing masks. And bullied. This is the same as his hamptons crowd. You can't ellum anything. You can't say. Just wait over there for. They're not gonNA, listen to you. They're all on, so it's been off almost two weeks and there's no outbreak. A give it another. supposed to wait fourteen days. We'll give it another. 'til Monday if there's no outbreak. Fine. It's just gone. That's it. It's just not around. I don't think it's just gone. Oh you know Manhattan. You haven't had really any cases. In Manhattan for weeks. If Swanson want, Lacey two cases in one day or one, but it's mostly zero. Sometimes, it's just gone from an area except to keep people from New Jersey out That's why good thing that motor vehicle department is a twelve hour wait. We don't want you getting driver's licenses and showing up here. We don't need that. I just want to mention this again because I'm getting e mail. People thought I was joking. This is real. This is not a joke. I'm told by people in the real estate business major real estate companies all the real estate agents. They have been told. This is not a joke. Dead serious. They can no longer say master bedroom can't say it. They can't put it into description. The can't write that anywhere. They have to call it the main bedroom. You cannot say master bedroom. It's considered racist. That's not pc it can. Insert. The? No, this is this out of Control Nutjob PC. You're no longer allowed to say his in her bathrooms. You have to say dual bathrooms. And you know I thought Russia's kidding, but rush said the lot of pressure to change the name of the Masters Golf Tournament. They don't want to call the masters, Anymore You kidding me no. Now knowing those guys gusts degree from college. I never thought about that, but those guys Gusta believe me. They're not changing anything. Remember the last time I got in trouble.

It was a split screen so the only stations you had to go find where away in or Newsmax and or finally I found that C. Span was airing it in nineteen eighty s pipe, video quality, but so as far as the ratings are concerned, you know it's not true ratings because the stations weren't carrying it, which is. The president's so patriotically and beautifully on Fourth of July, Weekend Mount Rushmore and they're not airing it. All right well. Thanks for calling the you what I'll put it up on the webpage.

I'm a first time caller longtime listener mark I'm calling regarding a certain segment of midtown or or the retails in New York City I've had to thirty five years in New York City. I'm ready to hang myself. Mark I haven't paid my rent four months. The MTA's got a sixty foot hole. For two years in front of my business there's about not I, would say fifteen to twenty retailers that I know personally that are defunct. I what you have you have a story. You mean a retail store. I have a retail store for thirty five years on, has you? And we are forced driven business and I'm on unemployment. Taking advantage of the six hundred dollar extra income that's coming in and I have zero income, nor does probably. Twenty other retailers on seventy everybody's on unemployment, which is running out. The city is actually I've never seen it the way it is. Probably like if you go round, Penn Station or a Broadway Times Square seven. It looks like a war zone. It's drug addicts. It's homeless. It's just sleazy dangerous looking. What's what? What are your landlords? telling you guys in. Thought it's not only the virus mark it's. What's been bringing the city down is? The scaffolding on every block the. Construction the MTA got every corner opened up with massive holes. There's something wrong with the system and our wonderful mayor and slash governor are clueless as to what's going on, they do not. But Hey the landlord. What did they say to you guys? Though that will work with you, give me a break. We'll select. What are they where where we're at a standoff at the moment I, mean unfortunately, some most of the landlords are in the same position we are. I mean I don't know what the answer is. Mark the city. Will take years and years to come back from where we were. you know the big bus bringing the tourism and I my son's an airline pilot. He hasn't worked in two months. Dealt is not flying tourist, and the the the theater's not opening up until next year. We, what's the answer for the for the retail? Is the coffee shops. The the the the tourist stores in Manhattan Midtown. What's the answer? Well excellent call, great call for cost. Answer simply can't do it, but. It would be for bill. De Blasio to call Ray Kelly. Call Rudy Field I need you to guys to run everything for a while. I'll sit here and working on the big picture Kelly you take care of crime, you take care of the streets you get that in order Rudy Giuliani. You get everything else in order running the management of the city and. I'm afraid. We need George Pataki to go up to Albany. Take control up there and you tell these two guys, Cuomo and de Blasios. You can do your briefings you. You go on TV everyday for go on for hours. Talk. Do whatever you WANNA. Do we'll run things you take credit for it if you want that, that's really what you do. That would work. That's all you can do. and knowing Rick Kelly Rudy Giuliani. They'll be happy to fix. Things just love New York and they'll fix it then. They'll let the blessing to your press conference go. Speak all day and they'll tell Cuomo to. Put up your charts and do all that stuff. You're going to be every day so I can't that that would fix it. You could fix about two weeks if you let those guys over. Let's go to Bernadette in Siegert New Jersey. Hey Bernadette. Bernadette are you there? We lost her past About eight, hundred, three to one zero seven tennis in the eight, hundred three to one, zero, seven ten is the number head. You see our friends. CHARLEMAGNE'S HIS OWN TV show. Comedy Central. What A GIG! For Him I'm happy for him. Nice. Guy! Well. We yeah, he's a great. That's the only thing about working from home. We don't get to see everybody every day. We're all working at home. You know it was out to see him. I'd like to see Elvis. Duran, we really like to see Elvis, Duran, because every day his studios right door every day had a buffet outside. You just couldn't wait to turn the corner. Is it Mexican food today? Is it pizza whatever it was? It was A. Whole building every day now the only thing years ago, this would have been a big deal. Charlemagne has got his own. He's going to get a series on comedy. Central well, Charlemagne is part of the breakfast club. One of the greatest most successful radio shows in the world and part of what they do is they? PUT IT UP ON YOUTUBE EVERYDAY's video. They have more viewers on their youtube video on one day. Then comedy central have five years so. I. I. It sounds impressive, but in today's world comedy central is nothing compared to even just the IHEART webpages puts them up on You ever look at the digital numbers for Iheart the you just. Charlemagne gets their CHARLEMAGNE's to raise those numbers on comedy central he's. Very interesting, raise them, but right now he's done like a ten million views a day, so it's more the steelers more beneficial for comedy central than for Charlemagne Anyway. Oh, Ann. Coulter will be with us in a moment he she wrote this book. It's one of her older books called demonic. It explains the mob. And the protesters and their mentality how to deal with them? How not to deal with them? What works? What doesn't we'll get to that? In a moment on seven ten W. O. R.? Let's get the latest news. Here's Joe Bartlett can't hear. The whole shown live gets arrested Mark Simone on demand. His casts at Seven Ten W. O.. R., DOT COM slash. Mark Simone on seven Jan W. O. R.. Well Ann Coulter across the best selling author, great tweeter. You should be following her on twitter. It's and coulter twitter and our website Ann Coulter Dot. com got all kinds of stuff. The latest book is resistance is futile, but we've been recommending this book demonic, which explains the mob how to deal with it and culture how you doing? Mark Simone. Well, I'm good, but. You've been watching. What's going on in New York, city, what the hell is happening is becoming a war zone. Crime is back. It's like the seventies all over again here. What are we gonNA do yes. Sonny's mentioned that I found I. Don't know if you follow. These people twitter. You can follow specific precincts in new. York and get lots of videos I was following one last night and saw that. These chanel store. At Sixty, seven, th and Madison I'm sorry I shouldn't laugh but I. It's unbelievable. No one no windows were smashed in I. Mean these are the safest areas of New York City. and and I appeal to you mark Simone We're going to have to take out Mr and Mrs Ray Kelly and make sure he runs for mayor. I know it's a large undertaking, but New York. City is the most important city in the world and wow, it's going under fast well. The only problem is that he'd be a great mayor, but that's a year and a half what we do for you? Well we did win for. I say we I was out new Kane and but for you know twenty years under mayor, Koch and and Mayor Dinkins. Okay, but you're on the rough streets of new, Canaan. They're trying to survive, but and that. Store. Is, it came back. I mean that's why I think Look at somebody else like Ray Kelly I can't think of him John Cats Matiz. That's one candidate but Ray Kelly. I. Think we need them like tomorrow. I think it's it's not. It's not like whenever I mean Republican candidates running in New York at the Metropolitan Republican Club. It's on the upper east side. They've lovely events and you know you'll often meet somebody you know. I'm running against Carolyn McCarthy and I'm always polite to them, but I ask them why. What is the point? Oh, I'm running against Cuomo you're New York state. You're going to lose. Okay, that isn't the case. This isn't some you know. Suicides statement run while I'm where Republicans can never ever possibly. Because because New, York or well for one thing you have all the media and the wall. Street people who live there but We can't be fooled anymore. For twenty years we were it was called. The city was called me governable city. No one could do it and Koch kind of fools people. I mean he was a lot like trump this way. He talked a good game. He say Oh, I hope that reporter gets mugged and you know. He acted like He. He did the equivalent of tweeting law and order, but never actually did anything, so the crime got worse and worse and worse, it was much worse under David Dinkins. And Giuliani comes in brings in Bill Bratton. mmediately prime starts to plummet, and it keeps forming year after year after year. through various You know the computer system through stop and Frisk through taking prime seriously now New Yorkers. No, this is not an ungovernable city. It depends entirely on whom the mayor is and I'm telling you the most. The most left-wing upper West sider may come out and say Oh darn that Ray Kelly but when they go into the. The private voting booth there voting forum to bring back safety to New York. You can't have anything if you don't have safety, you can't have life if you don't have safety and New Yorkers live through it. For Twenty years saw this miraculous transformation a decent candidate on law and order who can talk and presentable, and and doesn't say insane things, but but we know he's and by the way you know. They're not going to be A-. Raid Kelly was police commissioner under David Dinkins You're not going to turn this into some sort of race baiting campaign I. Mean maybe you can come up with somebody else, but I think we really may have to kidnap Kelly until. Run for mayor. Perfect what about Andrew? Cuomo? He's not that stupid. He's not that He's a practical guy. Politically wisely thinking himself. I'm going to get blamed for this, too. I I gotta go down and get him to fix this will. What isn't heat step in and do something. it's A. It's an unfortunate thing about about Democrats. They can get away with. With wrecking state wrecking the city wrecking a country because the media is so so so in their side, it can change what what people know and what they think I. Mean People Listening to your program My guess is are pretty hip to the issues, but a lot of people out there and I mean you've seen the opinion polls. It's stunning There was there was. an article saying. I saw late last night, saying we didn't need turns out we didn't need to do. The shutdown the details. Facts don't really matter. But I was about to tweet back that no, we only needed to quarantine governor Cuomo Single handedly responsible for more Cova Jess than any other human by by Oh. We're not going to allow nursing homes to discriminate. We non-discrimination. This discrimination business gotten out of control when you're not discriminating against. Kovin patients, you're sending back into nursing. Homes that that really was a big problem and yet, and still you turn around, and you see public opinion polls, and Oh, the navy's. They love Cuomo. MEATBALLS! Hey recommended. This book has demonic your book demonic really breaks down the psychology of a mob how to deal with a mob. Rioting mobs all REVOLU. True Story of the French Revolution, which which is really really stunning, you will not have learned that I was a history major at Cornell and I didn't learn it there. Because liberals want to hide it from you, and I it's stunning. It's spectacular I mean they were. They were ripping down on the revolutionaries before they were all guillotine themselves what they did to Notre Dame cathedral, ripping down all of the crosses and replacing them with You know. Profane Profane elements they. They call the com- the the alter the ulcer of reason and marched a prostitute down. The. The aisle to the altar. It's just it's. It's besides just the incessant bloodletting which ultimately leads to robespierre being guillotine. There's a reason. Liberals don't want you to read about. The French Revolution is the beginning of mobs taking over a country on. It happened in Cambodia, it happened in Russia. It happened in Venezuela and it looks like it's happening in our country now. But, why would the mob? Care about stupid little symbolic nothing things like a statue renaming a street. Why wouldn't they focus on real change in important things? I'm glad you asked that. Explained by Gustave Le Bon you discover, and and describe her of group think and mobs it there. It's like a mob loses it sense of rationality, and it's still dealing with a child images is what they like and and and you you plant a tiny wilmer and suddenly grows into this huge huge fear of something I. Mean They had marie-antoinette's? beaten Her husband kills his head. paraded pastor best friends same thing they cut off her best friends genital your breasts. Her head paraded them around Paris the Queen is is, is you know on death's door Her son's been taken from her, and when they will hurt to the guillotine, the crowd is is is jeering and cheering and we must kill. The princess must as if she was some major threat to their lives. I'm sick. It's horrible, but yes, this is absolutely typical mom behavior. While we get this book. Right to Monica still available. It's not only available available on audio to, and it does explain everything going on right now. One of these days I'm maybe when I'm on a take a week off. I'll summarize some of the highlights.

We've seen huge movements like meet you in black lives matter. Take off! Were largely started and run and shaved black people, women and other marginalized voices, and it got me thinking when it comes to quote important shift popping off online always run the show. Yes we use the Internet to build movement that the kind you're seeing up today, but women, black folks and other marginalized voices also shaped culture, make art and connect with each other using tack in ways. It had a big impact on Internet. Coulter. Even, from the very beginning reason why computers and the Internet attack, our everyday parts of all of our lives is because of the talent Labor of marginalized folks and today is no different, so that's why a bums me out to sea white, Tech Dude leaders actually don't have to be accountable to those various same people when they're platforms would be nothing without us. Tech is not neutral. It's not a political, but this isn't. What many important tech leaders would have you believe guess what they're wrong. Framing Tech is neutral. Let's tech leaders off the hook for the wasted their policies and platforms hurt. Many of whom are women black, marginalized voices Princeton's, he's put out a statement recently at burning their commitment to black lives, matter also let him trump and other sexist and racist misuse their platform in ways that directly harm same marginalized communities, while also raising in this fools a profit doing. Wondering why we've allowed tech leaders to get away with framing tickets neutral as policies harm our communities, we'll just take a look at who feels at home and the tax base and online. Buying into the idea that tech, the Internet, our domain, we've let white male tech leaders dominate the conversation in a space for. There should be the loudest. This okay, but how?

Tech is more than as people who make things with code. It's the artist's organizers.

Oakland county has a new executive in in an interesting twist of political fate ferndale. Mayor david coulter was appointed by the democratic controlled oakland county commission along party lines this week it means the first i exempt from that party in the county's history coulter resigned his position as ferndale mayor on monday to take the job. You've covered oakland county at the oakland press and you do with us now. This feels like a pretty big change to me and i mean maybe the talk of throwing cornyn blankets over fences might be over yeah yeah yeah. Definitely i mean i think <hes> <hes> my prediction is that david coulter is going to be much more tame than brooks. Patterson was in that way. I don't think he's gonna be <hes> the kind of politician who's gonna put his foot in his mouth <hes> figuratively speaking and make headlines for the wrong reasons <hes> you know and it's it's definitely significant as you mentioned. Oakland county is never been led by elliot democratic county executive. It's been a reflection of the way things have gone recently. I mean oakland county's board of commissioners. Which is the whole reason he's serving out this temporary temporary term <hes> flipped to the democratic home for the first time in decades after the election last <hes> fall and that was even after gerrymandering move and a commission stacking move by title works patterson to try to get more republicans on it right <hes> in elissa slatkin in <hes> you know when you're talking about the u._s. House <hes> took over a seat long held by republicans so things have definitely definitely been trending in that direction for a while <hes> a little bit about dave coulter <hes> he's been almost nine years as ferndale is mayor. He was <hes> before that he was a member of the oakland county board of commissioners where he was the leader of the democratic minority which was in the distinct minority at that time and he has said publicly in quotes that he was appointed. Did you know to fill out brooks patterson's term to manage the transition not necessarily to fix anything and he's also said he doesn't even know yet whether he's is going to run for the permanent job like a full term in twenty twenty in fact. I discovered today that he's got his <hes>. Dave coulter dot com is his <hes> campaign for state rep. He had previously said he was going to step down as ferndale mayor at the end of this year to run for state rep so who knows what happens but which is kind of interesting but aw i think in a lot of ways he's going to actually be kind of similar to brooks. I mean you know aside from you know not making statements about throwing corn blankets over the fence but he's he's really established himself kind of as a sound fiscal hawk in a way i mean i think he you know. Ferndale did a great job managing doing their way through the great recession. I mean i i've lived in ferndale for fifteen years. You know like every city they saw their tax revenues from from property taxes absolutely absolutely plummet almost overnight during the great recession you know but to residents there was really almost no discernible downturn in in in the level of services that provided for us which was great <hes> he's been a proponent of practicing multi-year budgeting which he very well may have gotten from brooks patterson himself and i would i would note here that in his acceptance speech he actually talked about the budget being a priority and he actually mentioned l. brooks by name about making sure about fiscal. Go responsibility the budget those kind of things it feels like when a rubber hits the road kind of way they're actually might be some similarities in style from a very practical point of view. Yeah i think so <hes> <hes> cultures also convened like a roundtable group of business leaders in ferndale because he's really been out front about trying to be friendly to businesses mrs and and make it easy for businesses that want to locate in ferndale to work with the city government and bureaucracy and everything <hes> ferndale is totally unlike a a lotta the job centers in open county like you know you're troy's or southfield auburn hills. It doesn't have much in the way of class a office space but it would it does offer as a vibrant downtown on there's it's actually got a decent size industrial district along the railroad tracks that i would say kind of notable because there aren't that many major vacancies as an ad industry district. They've done a good job of kind of filling a lot of those buildings in there and sometimes with creative uses if you think about drifter coffee which is just beautiful in there you wouldn't think that would be an industrial strip but but it is urban risk brewing all kinds of things yeah and there's a couple <hes>. There's a new <hes> marijuana business. That's getting ready to open that. They've painted a building <hes> recently. There's a lot of new housing in ferndale. There's two major construction sites <hes> going on right now so a lot of economic activity you know it's been a very desirable a place for businesses and people to move into everything. Do you think this is reflective of urban entering suburbs being ascendant in like rising up. I do absolutely <hes> and it's a reflection partly of changing trends you know i mean i think you're seeing with the you know you've been reading much about millennials wanting to live in cities and places that are walkable couple and everything i definitely think that's true ferndale and a lot of the cities in the southeast end of oakland really suffered under brooks patterson's kind of more isolationist <hes> pro pro sprawl governing philosophy and i think that's kind of changed. I mean you know you've seen a lot of the job. <hes> you know the big. Economic development wins move from those traditional oakland county jobcentres. I mentioned to places like detroit and ferndale frankly so my guess is that difficulties really gonna. It's kind of like a he's. He's not gonna look to make a lot of headlines outside of just kind of keeping the steady ship and he's gonna leave sort of the more progressive social legislating things things you know the human rights ordinances or whatever to the county board of commissioners which you know is controlled eleven to ten <hes> by democrats thinks then file this one under it's great that happening but it's supposed to the queue line the streetcar that runs for about three miles from downtown to the new center is now accepting the same regional fair pass that both smart and d dot do it's called a dart pass and it allows riders unlimited usage of the participating transit systems for four hours for two bucks or twenty four hours for five bucks. It's also means that the queue line fare increases from a dollar fifty fifty for four hours to two bucks and from three dollars to five dollars for a day pass well as a semi regular user of the queue line and and transit in general. I think this is going to help them. A bit ridership has been down ever since it was free it never it's never hit expectations ever since they started charging aging and i think part of it is is that i think this'll be of course marginal. I don't think it's going to be huge but part of the problem is is that you have to choose okay. Am i going to take the bus or am. I going to take the line. The the two things don't work together and we're going to be honest if you are on woodward and you need to get downtown fast you take the bus like if you need speed the buses way faster and reliable than i think that's one of the issues i mean. I think this is a great <hes> start. It's one of many things that needs to happen to improve the q._n. The the other one being speed it needs to increase its operating speed. It needs some of the signal priority that they've they've talked about. Doing these. Keep saying they're going to do it but i don't see any i it. It doesn't seem like now. It's there's a lot of things like that. I mean for for for one thing though i will say this great that one basic fare card isn't just happening for the queue line but detroit system dot and the suburban smart but it's also what you're supposed to do. This is exactly like real regions function yeah we'll we'll wait eagerly for the news that this is going to be applying to the people mover now too yeah. Oh absolutely feel like that would be the perfect answer in that kind of downtown core obviously again. It's about the downtown core but that's i think where you're gonna get some of that initial traction with the people mover and things it'd be great to have one fare card. I've seen rumors that it was going to happen. Don't know for sure and just so that people know this is actually gonna take effect october first. This isn't immediate but it's definitely coming coming ahead but i do have a bonapace okay with the and it's a little bit along the lines of some of the things we talked about the press materials. Keep saying that the queue line is a six point point six mile route. They need to stop because that's not true. I get it like they're being technically correct because what they're doing is they're counting both sides of the track like their coverage counting north and south but as one presidential candidate would say that's a bunch of malarkey because if it was a six point six mile route at run it would run basically all the way to mcnichols. Would you be a lot more useful. It'd be helpful yeah. It would get you get you a lot closer to y eight mile which then we're really talking. I think ford motor company. I and it's lincoln luxury division are reportedly lining up a pair of mid sized battery electric crossovers to be built at the flat rock assembly plant that likely spells spells the end of the road for production of lincoln continental sedan just a few years after the legendary nameplate was reintroduced automotive news first reported the story citing anonymous automous sources familiar with the company's plans for the downriver plant and yes. We'll have lincoln the show notes the two new crossovers would hit the market for the twenty twenty three model year and we'll be similar similar in size to the ford edge and lincoln nautilus spin turn to you for all things cars yeah absolutely i mean the continental was introduced of course was the continental has a long running legendary status in the auto world right. I mean you remember the continentals of the fifties and sixties they were like the you know what <unk> sometimes derisively called land yachts but they were beautiful hours ray and yachts. I love giant beautiful cars. I love land god's so you would have loved the lincoln continentals but it's you you know it's kind of a victim of bad timing and a lot of ways <hes> crossover and pick up trucks and s._u._v.'s are eating sedans sedans for lunch. You know i mean the the growth curves are going in the opposite direction for the for the you know the two types of vehicles and ford of course has basically announced what's that they're ditching pretty much all the car models in favor of more utility vehicles and trucks and everything so the continental has never frankly sold well <hes> i checked. It's a second quarter sales this year. We're down twenty-eight percent thirty six percent year to date. I think they were below four thousand so far for year to date which is not good. You don't see too many continentals on instagram my man you don't <hes> so <hes> according to automotive news. They're going to stop producing the continental at flat rock in in twenty twenty one a key it could continue to be built in china and potentially exported to the united states so doesn't necessarily mean and that <hes> you know consumers won't be able to buy it but i would also point out that ford you know recently canceled plans to export a vehicle called the focus active from china because because of the trade war and tariffs on chinese made goods so <hes> not a given. I just wanted to say to you know. I think the the continental was really a dynamite looking car. I'm talking about the new continental the reintroduction <hes> i think it's really got some distinctive design like some lines to it and some really sleek look to it. I really think that the rear end of it has a very unique look among sedans. It's unlike anything anything you all you see on the roads and then earlier this year. They introduced that suicide door version <hes> they headed at the detroit auto show. We talked about that on a previous show oh and was really really cool looking but apparently it's not long for <hes> at least not made here in detroit. Well i think about the the general uncertainty with some economic factors you think about the impact of tariffs and other things. We've got a steel plant. It's actually idling nearby this year in his temporary layoffs the people yeah manufacturing alva ties together. Well you know <hes> who knows maybe this is sort of the first <hes> signs of what's to because i mean there's certainly been a lot of <hes> <hes> turbulence on wall street lately and a lot of speculation that we could be you know sort of trailing edge of going into a recession and and to be completely honest i mean we've been in an economic upturn for a long time. We're overdue alright. Are you looking for a job job. Fair giant dot com is holding two job expos later this month offering on site interviews with fifty employers.

His Dark Materials - S01E07 - The Fight to the Death

"Welcome to television the officially unofficial place for all of TV. I'm your host. I'm your Costa Alexis. And today we're talking about episode seven of his dark materials the fight to the death of fight to the death. It is called mortal combat in the book so I understand why they change. Ah with a C.. Good but sadly but did you think of the episode. I think that they're we're doing the best they can but they have budget wise and also TV rating wise. Yeah there's there's a moment's left a little bit to be desired but I overall had a good feeling how about you would you think yeah. I think I think I definitely instinctively liked the episode but I try not to. I try not to even though it's our job here right right onto peer too hard at the cracks. Right there are Some things that you know just leave Leave a lot on the table like the end of the bear fight could have been a lot better dr or just visible it. Just I think we were wondering why who who was a show made for With the TV fourteen rating. I'm not sure that I'm not sure what that even means. Why do they get that rating just because there implied violence maybe some blood but then you get that kind of braiding and you pull back anyway? you do have to pull your punches a little bit. It's you know the source material is why a two. Maybe they had that in their minds. Going in yeah I mean honestly feels like they have. They just have a lot of cooks in the kitchen. I'm wondering if maybe these two studios working together wasn't the best idea because it's got the look and feel of something very hbo. When like Mrs Coulter does? Isn't this opening scene. She does is scream. That's played over music that's such an. Hbo Fang but you have these but you also have someone playing two children in the audience. which maybe isn't exactly? What a coming of tail or coming of age was supposed to do But like I said I instinctively like the episode. I like what everyone's doing here and it's it's fun. It's beautiful definitely. I do grow tired occasionally of blue shows but maybe there will be appellate change in the next season without saying into much once they step through the Aurora or whatever. That's got a lot of colors in it. Yeah if that's what happens I I don't know weird Do you want to just get right into the episode YELP STU it housekeeping this housekeeping is all about saying Merry Christmas then happy New Year first off. Merry Christmas because we're right in the middle of our Maryanne McAlister McLean to Christmas harder celebrations last week. Of course we took in Larry.

The new pope and better call Saul in it and of course somewhere. You're out there. Westworld season two awaits with Aaron Paul. I'm excited but before all that we're taking a week or so off to celebrate with our friends and family so in conclusion have a very remarried Christmas a very happy holidays. A wonderful New Year So we opened with Mrs Coulter looking at the wreckage of her machine and the monkey comes and finds her and then she turns towards Karen Aaron. lets out this terrifying scream. Like I said it's always it's always really cool and Kinda gross but really cool when you see like the a string of spit blowing and scream win you know right. Yeah now stuff stuff okay. This has nothing to do with anything. But can we talk just for a second about mouth. Stuff all-star no. No I will not. I will not go there those surly. No I when did we suddenly make the decision that we could see people actually throwing up and see the vomit on the floor in shows and movies and stuff. Jeff are you against it. I'm a little yuck by it. I'M NOT GONNA lie. It's not great. You know. I think we used to do with thing where you could hear it like you. Someone when you're facing a toilet and you hear a splash but now you've gone to like seeing things and I think I prefer seeing it to hearing it really. Oh you nasty pretty dirty for. I don't know that it's something that's just so I don't know is. It really speaks to me so realistic. Yeah when you see someone throw up and then there's no like residue or anything. I don't know I'm against people glamorizing throwing up. It's gross. It's horrible. It hurts parts it does. Yeah I always like Saab violently when I throw up nobody recovers from that nicely except for your husband. Apparently her there's a story about him like That he just hold on lunch you weeks ago about how he was out on his thirtieth birthday and and he was walking with his friends and he drank too much Ho News. Like gotta throw him and he just through the bushes and then yeah. That's that's very Jim. So yeah got. Maybe he's one of those people who likes to hear it. I don't know what the moral of that story is. I don't know sorry. Yeah that was a crazy tangent. I just this digression it never it never ever happened and then all of a sudden it happened in everything. I was just thinking about that. Okay anyway who throws up in this episode. Nobody but we were talking about mouth stuff and hell and I was thinking about how Yucky spit is that maybe think Yucky. Barbara's it's just the whole thing anyway whole thing. This is why this podcast smart explicit Sir just request to hey another digression. The her monkey is doing this thing in the scene where he keeps checking her face. It's like he's trying to take her her mood. Temperature And that is like classic abuse victim behavior method. That was a nice touch. Yeah yeah absolutely the now one Mrs Coulter walks outside and finds the nurse who's had her demon cut away on internees in the snow and she's asking me about Lyra but since Lyra gave a false name when she arrived she the nurse doesn't know who she is At then Mrs Coulter strangles the woman but doesn't kill her. Yeah almost kills there. And she's like she don't tell anybody. Don't down anybody. Yeah this poor this poor woman who has had part of her soul you know separated from her and I guess she's the only one in the facility like that. I thought they were all like that. But the show is saying that it is the only one because she's the only one to stay behind but she obviously is not in possession of all of her faculties brady she straight up says what can I do. I I just want to help you. Mrs Coulter is like oh I'm okay cool I WANNA take out my shit on you strangle you have to death. Oh my God awful awful insane but I'm thinking that maybe it would have been the more merciful thing to do. Because unless Mrs Coulter takes her with her a woman's going to die in the snow I know right. Yeah unless you like hatefully the hangar. Right she tries to walk anywhere. She's not GonNa make it. She doesn't even know to walk anywhere anywhere the problem. Yeah it's rough. Yeah that's the kind of darkness you'd expect from show it's got in the title man. She and they have that the thing where they they see. Gee I'd the shine of the is again It's very animated like it. Yeah So the next scene received Lyra Somehow survived this fall out of the balloon. She's holding her her ribs. Net never comes back. So that's cool. No no she's good Well all the good thing is. She narrowly missed all of these long rock walls. I don't know how far how high up they were not sure I'm not sure that lease scores air or not. Because I was GONNA wait but I'm just going to ask you right up front here. Why did he crash? Why did your and Roger Fallout separately? So lyra accidentally fell out. What the fuck happened? Everyone one else listen. It was stark Lewis. Foggy there was there was a gun. He couldn't keep every I mean. How did your slip out of the hole? That was left when Laura slipped out the gun is also a demon and it holds a part of his it holds the part of his brain. That knows how to pilot a balloon. Okay I'm here. I'm here with the answers for you. Okay so then. Once Roger you're slipped out of that hole in the floor lease scores me fucking crashes. His balloon in a separate location K. K.. Just checking there should have been a storm or something to make that more or you know the AH the battle we ended on they could have shown length the cliff gas tearing up the balloon in a really irreparable way. Yeah I mean that would've taken more seconds but it's just. It was just very confusing using me every time we cut to our heroes. I'm like Oh Roger in Uruguay are you out here. we scores I duNno. His balloon doesn't look that re-erect even right. There's no good answer for this in the book. Either it's just kind of what happened. Yeah and everybody's okay falling out of a balloon no problem cliffs lifts were good nbd. It's that powdery snow. She's like a cushioned landon. Soft Christmas miracle. So then we get just a quick borough returning to our world. Yeah I don't know why this was here. I guess just to remind us that he exists and that he is. They're now just a just a break-up the action here I guess 'cause Liar is being escorted back to the bear kingdom and this. This looks awesome. Yeah it's such a metal entrance to the kingdom it's a it's a fortress S- covered in blood blood puddles everywhere. There was thinking. I was kind of thinking that maybe they did this. Wide Shot where you saw a lot more blood and I thought maybe that there was going to be you. That's where the battles were outside. That bears fought often and for fun. Or pleasure magisterial or something really creepy like that but it seems like like. That's just where they killed. And airs and drags yet. It looks like a Walrus killing ground. Basically Yeah So a lot of blood blood. Yeah so all the blood that we were wondering where it was in the episodes prior here it is we found it. It's here it was all. I'll hear you WANNA cool. What if they had had the fight outside in the Wallis killing grounds then we get all the blood too? Yep that's how it happens and I'm just wondering what the differences between separating them like that. Yeah I have a little bit of insight into that but we'll get there okay. So they lock liar into a cell and she checks the elite the arbiter and seize your eggs on his way to save her she is locked up with a gentleman called. Show them Saints Helium And he is or was a regis professor answer of Cosmetology at the University of Gloucester and Dr Stor in thanks to subtitles. I know how that's pronounce now. Because I always pronounced it at Chester in my head Retu- and I know Brits are laughing at me right now but I mean is. Is there an Americanized way to say is. I guess. You're sad. Aluminium it's aluminum. No don't say oh no I'm I'm trying to think of another place name in the UK that is spelled a different way. London Lawn Donlon I don't know anyway weathering heights as long I it's good So we don't say Yorkshire Orcher Yorkshire. You're sure yeah. So why would we not pronounce it right. I've already forgotten. The correct pronunciation. TURNS OUT I didn't learn anything thought what I did. Nah No still huge dome as energy. Okay so this man is clearly losing his mind like we are yes and he laughs when she tells him her name and tells her that even for the one of the untradable couple polar bears which now thinking that they're just delusional was tricked by Azriel into letting him return to his Laborde Tori where he is imprison there but has all the resources and everything he needs to continue his experiments on whatever he's doing And he believes they cannot escape gate because they're trapped by two hundred bears and fire hurlers. which would have been cool to see would have been called? That was his he. So he's he's like explaining to her. Why York is super fucked? When he gets there? 'cause he's like he's not even GonNa make it to the gates of fire hurlers there two hundred of these big big bad boys yeah. He's not not not good odds. I mean you're kind of believe that too He knew that if you ever came back here they'd kill him. I could ever reach the gate and said as much I think it in. Yeah So yeah we see uric foolishly running towards the the the bear kingdom name yes fell bard is a bear Bangor Albert felts fall third foul buried. We before before this happens I I should mention Lyra has an Aha moment. She has an interest with regard are to For wants his motivations. Yeah so Joe. Tham says that he was imprisoned because he told in your for the hard truth that he will always be a bear and that gives Lyra this idea. Sparks this idea. Yeah I was trying to remember Berg if because I know in the book there was mention of Yo firm warning a demon like warning so bad to be human that he also wanted to demon in like the very very first scene of the scholars meeting to give Azriel his funding to decide whether to give Azriel is funding. Yeah but I was trying to remember where in the show did mentioned before if they even had Yeah so it's a good reminder for us Then we see the boreal in his car watching video of John Perry and in the video. He says he will be writing his family. Some truly epic letters is watching Youtube and his car. This this is relatable content. Definitely done that before Yeah it's the same press release and yes letters letters are happening. I don't know why we need even more motivation for him to break into his house. Like we know it's going to happen. I guess maybe we just need to know exactly. Okay how careful he is so now he knows exactly what he's looking for when he gets in there exactly. It seems like they brought this actor back in just for a day. B Roll footage so that they can have something to break up this action at the the bears at the bare Bertam. Yeah I think so. Small Bird LYRA is brought to ear for. WHO's sitting on a throne? Because he thinks he's the people he thinks he's people surrounded by enormous whale bones. It's pretty cool. Fuck the the throne of Voltairian steal. Well this is a whale wail pelvis or whatever it is Larry and rail rib balloons. Got Those big old rib. Yeah Yeah I love. I love a big chair. That can make me feel small. It takes a lot to make me feel small and I liked that feeling. It lyra tells e for that she is your extreme in and he is incredulous to say the least. He demands that the other bears leave them alone and she it tells him that. Mrs Coulter Creates Demons for bears not just cut children away But didn't give him one even though he wants is one more than anything or anyone else's ever wanted a demon. She is really banking on him. Not Knowing Jack Shit about demons here And gamble it pays off luckily right. That's the that's the Mrs Coulter in her And she especially that three things at once. Saving Even York's life. She saving Israel's life in her mind and she's also throwing Mrs Coulter's influence away. I think the the moment that really crystallizes that idea that parallel between her and Mrs Coulter is when she whispers in his ear as he's trying to leave. That was straight out Mrs Gold. Yes I guess it was. That was very well done. It was like that so we had LYRA. Explains that if you for can defeat defeat uric in single combat then he will be able to inherit his demon and she can prove it with Ille- theater. What I like like about these scenes choices that lower manx is she uses? She uses the elite the Ahmir purely for impossible knowledge. Like to know if someone's on his on their way to save her but everything else she comes up with on her own right. I just think that's really clever of her. At this point we you see that Lyra has become like a complete master with the elite theater It's she is freaking out because she has she surrounded by these enormous Norma's bears and yet she's still is able to slip into that mind. State like like putting on a soccer something like it's super easy. Yeah the series kind of Explains Plains or the the book series explains Us Away with like the witch's prophecy and something else that I can't talk about about because it's a spoiler but there are reasons for this ago though it seems it seems like a lot very quickly now. I don't know I think we're all here for the story of the girl who's special So as a test he asks her to tell him what the I greet he ever killed was and she goes to Secret place pulls out of the theater and it tells her that it was his own father pop up straight from the book. The fool was a bear killer long before your Iq was yeah that he me hit yep just like a human he agrees to fight uric. Pretend like it was his idea. Yeah so let me go to boreal as Charles Leitrim and he goes to Elaine's house while she's alone and invites himself in forces forces the door which was like one of the scariest moments suber scary just the way he does it. It's it's really well done because it's just brings all those feelings of like an intruder especially a male intruder freight and it gives you this place where you put you in this place where you don't WanNa be the ones act I because you know you're not GonNa win But he hasn't done anything violent. Yeah he just turned the door handle in. Yeah but it would have been locked if you'd gotten their first right uh-huh and now he's in your space. And he can easily overpower you and he he pushes open the door. He does overpower her. Technically yeah it's rough die. I just I remember having that like that feeling in the pit of my stomach like Oh. Yeah it's scary very well done. Yeah it's terrifying. So he gets he gets end so and I thought he was going to go for. Maybe the playing up to her manager kind of thing like I've seen people watching your house. They're not with me. You have to give me the letters and get them to safety but We see will so quickly to will be at school. You know where he is during all this a boreal all in the lounge ends that. Maybe he's an intelligence officer and says over the right information they might be able to find John Still Alive and you make some in kind of vague threats that I don't know that he can back up and flashes demon at her. I don't know if it's on purpose or an accident. That's a good question. And she absolutely sees it and he. He does try to kind of say that she didn't actually see it. Shies gaslight or a little bit I I don't know yeah yeah now you know it's on it's in your head. It's really wild thing for you to think that you saw that. Yeah no it's not a right. It's free it really fucked up thing to do to someone who is M- already not all the way there and I you know what I'm wondering if if I can't tell the what boreal actually is either. Did he ever was he ever in the Marines. Is He a part of my sex is he. You know spying on the other world. But he'd actually belongs at this world. He knows it all those things exist. So that's something right. He he is at least steeped enough in how this world this world world works that he knows those things says definitely got a demon. Yes Oh he's gotta be from the other world. No Yeah No. He's absolutely from wires world but it seems like he's had a lot of involvement with this world to we don't know how long he's been crossing over navy's Mu doing this for years right just kind of establishing this identities Charles Lateran. Yeah I I'm really worried that Elaine is going to be killed before the end of the season. Yeah not might I be that kind of catalyst for will to be pushing action. That's just that's right. This is to stuff so you wouldn't know yeah I know uh it you welcome just wondering out loud. I find that to be mildly interesting knitting knitting. I can't say all secrets anyway. He he's not going to get his hands. Dirty of course sends in his cronies. He's this podcast is sponsored by away luggage. Whoever said it's all about the journey has never traveled during the holidays? It's the most stressful crazies. Time hit the road food but away products are designed to work fit together making travel smoother for the holidays and beyond Jim. Do you have a travel horror. Story travel yes but not during the holidays holiday a memorable. They want us to give a memorable holiday. Travel Story And what made significant here. Here's it's where two wheels metaphorically fall off the pitch because I don't have any holiday horror stories de Saint like travel stories in the reason I don't travel during Christmas is because it's it's always been portrayed in the media I consume the fucking worst and I think travel is bad just baseline I wanna see like travel at peak stress. I know what's going to happen. Even the efforts going to be taken over by terrorist. My parents are GonNa Forget me on the flight. The France and I'm going to be left behind to be preyed upon by criminals. Like I do Christmas the weeks before after but actual Christmas I stay away from that but if you're going to go out there and go to brave the holiday travel season they need some bad ass luggage and inter away because away offers.

So for whoever you are and whatever you need to pack such as gifts comfy clothes holiday treats away has luggage that works for how so you Travel Jim. Top away luggage feature. I thought you were going to say three. You had me worried. The number one is easily removable battery which the Older Generation Aways. I didn't have honestly like. That's a huge feature. Those are so make sure you select at checkout. But it's it's amazing I use. Is it all the time I use it at the airport. I use it on the plane. I use it when they get to my destination. I just I don't know my phone the last day of like G- and taking pictures it's great. They also have durable exterior. Was Stan even the roughest of baggage handlers. Every suitcase comes interior organization system that includes a built in compression pad to help you pack or in and hidden removable laundry bag. The separates your dirty clothes.

She explains her Roussy Yorick as he's heading into battle the for and although this would be kind of the time and the place to be wearing your armor they have chosen to take it off. Yes so there there is some there is an explanation mel no good explanation. But it's an explanation for this. They wanted to. They said they wanted to make the bears. More like bears. They wanted to make the more animalistic. And it wanted to make this fight more like more ceremonial and that's also why it's happening in the throne room. So you're saying that bears just will always be worse Yeah it interesting and confusing message to send and they also are trying to say that you offer would choose to not wear his armor as like a but he doesn't want to be a very intimidation thing. Yes I agree with you. I I think he absolutely absolutely would wear armor because no human would go into battle without their demon their demon their armor their weapons Seoul. Yeah yeah the swimming exactly. In the books they do wear their armor and it's actually really cool because you can see them breaking their armor. Par Are you and as armor falls away that you become more like bears. They do. Yeah it is a breaking down of the human element to reveal the bear instead of just straight straight going straight to revealing the bear also the or the way that you are beat you over in the book is there is there is a A flaw aw in his armor because he doesn't maintain it well enough because he's not acting like a bear right and that's what gets his jaw. His Dang ripta right. Their parents are bjorn. They're not bears. Yeah so I I also my hot take on. This is that it was easier to animate the bears. There's just being bears. It seems like they ran out of. CG budget halfway through it was a big fight. I thoroughly unless you didn't really hard to do. We can renders some guys running around bare heads but we can't do it with armor onto and then like oh well we can do it without armor on but only like halfway and then maybe maybe we'll just do like fuzzy shots the voice focus on Lila's face and then just let people but I don't know I don't know if I'm very disappointed in how this bear fight goes the voice actors added this fight out. They actually arrest. I love their their Gigli Bare Butts. It was so good it was so good until it wasn't yeah is my point here you I'm GonNa try to harp on it too much. Okay so later. Jump out of the way and almost gets hit by a falling lantern ear. Four gets his cage rattled when he gets turning a wall her and gets upperhand on York momentarily. He almost finishes York off a year. foregoes first throat. No one looks like he was going to get mm-hmm Lyra runs to him and you forgives the obligatory bad guy speech and of course then he realizes it Lyra was a liar because she's comforting Yorick and he gets a second wind and attacks you you for as we see it all play out on Lila's face The other thing is kind of plane. Coy about who won. Shouldn't that have been kind of moment of triumph. That after the battle is over we hear the noises. The sounds of finality in someone dying and then maybe cut to the winner. And maybe the bears charing recognizing that winner but then they go to the next scene. And I don't even know if they knew they. replaying coy about who won. Because you know she's tending to the wounds and all you can see as polar bear flash. You don't know who's news polar bear flesh it is right yeah But it's Yorick yeah. It did weirdly robbed a moment of a a little bit of victory and also this reality. If that's a word of her like you said we see the final blow all all of that. The violence of the end of that fight played out on her face. That's it I I did like seeing her face. React to it. I liked that this is just like so fucking much. So you're Grease to free Jochem from the engine and also renames James Her LYRA silver tongue. Yep In this is. I don't think this is much of a spoiler This is the name that she will go by for the rest of her life. It's a good that name a good name and I think it also lets her claim something other than her terrible parents. We know now that block. O A is as Israel's last name Mia Yeah I never actually known before. Oh Really Yeah I. I don't know that it's ever like strictly mentioned but I guess you just have to assume that that was his last name because right yeah if you if you knew right up front that they had same last name you'd assume their father and daughter but also not really because it's his his. He played it off like it was his brother's child so they would make sense. They'd have the last name the same So then we go to our world and Elaine Lane. Fines will at school and tells them about the men and the snake and that his father might still be alive He believes her Good kid then we see uric addressing the bears and they decided to go back to their bare ways in start removing their armor or their helmets at least Well they're removing their Godley ceremonial armor. They're going to go back to the good old sky iron. I didn't feel like they made that clear enough. Probably didn't make a whole thing about how these are armored bears and always see in this episode is there's without armor right eighteen choice. What's happening here? Is they're rejecting the majesty rooms gift of this kind of armor and they want to go back to the traditional kind that Europe has or the self the individual bear made kind. Do they each have a different look to their armor. Each bear makes his own armor. So so they'll look they're supposed to look different right. Yeah I'd like to see that it's like a fashion show of bears and their souls and what they look like radius fashion in show. Yeah your returns Lyra to Roger Who's hiding in a little cave you very curious expose. It's they reunite. She checks the elite the Ahmir defined Wehrley is and he crashed but is safe and also sees is that culture is hot on their trail. In the three of. Them's agreed to set outs find Azriel At the magic cerium. Everyone is being rounded up to head north and in the North Mrs Coulter Finds Father Macphail and he dropped some knowledge on her. That Azriel was doing whatever he wants. And your has taken over and killed e for which is a shock to her. She's kind of losing everything. Anything in this moment. Yeah she. She's all about control and she is losing it left and right yes. So she's good She's tries to. She tried to talk. My phone's letting her come along. And the only thing she really has to offer is some kind of psycho sexual game that they're you're playing this little. This little part of the seniors actually kind of hot. I was into it. It was super hot but she. He's already rejected her before when she's done this kind of thing. So she's really laying it all on the table Yash now. She's she's taking a different tact she's like Oh i. I am also dedicated indicated to the Authority imaginarium cool And he says he says is that Azriel needs to die so I guess that's yes I guess. So she never she never says specifically that she will do it so leaders little wiggle room That is the understanding moving forward. Said if you want to keeping part of this get whatever you want as real has to die yeah Back in our World Elaine and will see that the House House has been rated and they fully He tells her he believes her and drops her off at the his boxing teachers house. Yes most sensible thing you could have done in the moment yeah It's really sad. It's really sad that they don't have any friends or family family to speak of. Yeah they're very isolated. I don't know what the story is there. As far as other family goes but obviously there is nobody. You have to lean on your your wrestling coach and wrestling now wrestling boxing boxing oxygen wrestling boxing. foxing definitely will hugs her and she tells him to go find the letters. Why didn't he just? Why don't if they just grabbed the letters before they left while they were there? They were afraid that somebody was still mouse. Yeah as and said that okay at least B.'s. Crash site SARAFINA. Peccadillo shows up to help kind of. I don't know what she's GonNa do. Just help motivate him. You got this buddy basically just bringing his gun back here. It seems like you lost your ability to pilot. Here's your here's your even gone back that everyone survived and that he's has more work to do She talks a blue talks about fate and destiny estany and all of that stuff again and Lee believes that Lyra needs them all for some reason Will in our world returns home finds a letter sooner the sewing machine. The we see uric Lyra. And Roger Get within spitting distance of Azriel he skipped over the double barrel bride. Could you did I. Yeah these two kids the time with their fucking lives on the polar bear and then we cut to will being tested in one of the biggest as he'll ever be tested is a fun. Parallel allo juxtaposition right coulter gets her very own evil. Walking Stair moment has the magic cerium goons are preparing their heavy weaponry. You Will is at his house in. He's packing up his bag and he hears someone someone arrive. The Pale man gets a name. His name is Thomas. The subtitles told me right and the hired gun is still just in. That is a hired gun. Does he have a name. Who Cares doesn't matter We'll put the belt on his hand and he's ready to fight and we know he's taking boxing. Lessons always ready. Busiest kicks mass in his in his defense. He did hit the guy but the cat gets a lot of credit to fucking cap murderers trips right over that thing right over the banister. Yeah looks pretty dead already dead. Pretty did will flees into the night. U He does he makes it back to his coach's house data. It seems like he's not quite ready to face that very awkward situation yet. Yeah turns away bow lane is watching for will and she just barely missing him so I wonder if he thinks because he killed a guy he needs to be on the run. Now which is a shame. Yeah But he knows his mom safe. They're a liar. Is Gang arrive. At Azriel Palace. His Laboratory Palace Dungeon Laboratory Uric says he will remain close by outside and Roger and Lyra hug each other and easier Aurora. Very cute They knock on the door and thorough thorold opens it and lets them in. And he's he's more welcoming. I couldn't figure out how these two knew each other but I guess they're old. I assumed he was like a research assistant or something for Azriel. But he's actually as manservant so yeah see certainly one of the visits to Jordan College. He's been with them. Yeah so as real suit Larry and just fucking lose it. Yeah very interesting reaction. He's elderly because he did not send for her and he tries the kicker out but still Maria stops him when they see Rogers there as well As real asks thorough to prepare the children in a hot bath and some food. He's changed his mind. They get to stay and he tells Roger that he's R- very glad he came and he stares at him like a cartoon dog looking the state. Yeah why is it bad. That liar came but great that she didn't come alone right once again. What's good for other kids as right her? Did they do a good job setting this up. I don't know what are they setting up. When are they setting? Find out next week This yeah I don't I don't know what to make of this but it nothing good it's GonNa come with that. Let's the episode honesty out in this last episode in the next episode the betrayal the name of it and we'll be seeing the showdown between the Majesty cerium and everyone opposing it. Definitely yeah cool. They've already been green lit for a second season right. Yeah so you and I will definitely be back to talk about that And we'll be back next week to talk about the next episode but this Christmas Miracle uh-huh host Christmas miracles. You're welcome. I'm going to be watching this show and taking notes on on Christmas Day. I hope you people are happy on Christmas his day. It's Wednesday right. You could do it on Tuesday but I have to stay up late SUV. I say as though I didn't last night. Yeah but anyway. It's a Christmas miracle anyway. Yes there will be an episode next week. Yeah I don't know that I have anything else really to say about the episode. Yeah I didn't. There were some spoiler things but like their actual spoilers for in coming seasons. Hopefully seasons will be plural but will say I realized I've been talking as though there will only be two seasons sped. That's not two seasons have been green lit. That's all right so there could be a third season. There could be more I mean. I guess we'll see how far they getting the story. The next seems crazy means anything could happen. Anything anything I just realized that we don't even have feedback like this week. I didn't have an emails this week. man I know we're podcasting into the void. Feel like the closer we we get to Christmas. Less people are interested in Engaging in anything I don't know negative dare. I say that I still enjoying episode and not the episode. The season sewn joined the season. I just don't feel like a lot of other people are I. F- We've talked extensively this point about this show problems with its audience and not knowing exactly who it is playing too. I think that might be part of it This is also kind of a weird story that not. Everybody was into even at the time that I came out like I. I think talked about how all my friends were able and willing to talk about Harry Potter but fucking. Nobody wanted to chat with his materials. Even know what it was nope too depressing too weird and religious and depressing so we could be seeing some of that again here. Yeah Yeah exactly. NOT SURE IT'S A. I'm I'm interested to see where this goes. I'll be very sad if they aren't able able to complete the series again if we get another failed adaptation. Yeah they're incomplete adaptation right out stink yes especially with the great cast. They've got going on here Yeah and they are. I feel like doing their best with what they have for. Sure there the moment so they dropped the ball a little bit but overall I've I've felt pretty good about this season. It has gotten darker as it progresses but the story has gotten darker occur to so like what the fuck you want right. I mean you can feels like you can see people actively learning while they're going along like Landman Wall's performance was so so fucking over the top but now he's just he's he's it's it's him in a darker atmosphere as we progress and that works. Yeah I to see people. People actively change exactly. Yeah I didn't talk about it in the last episode. But that the him screaming liars name she falls out of the balloon. Less episode is really good so raw. Aw Yeah I get to hear it. In the you know the recap before. Yes what made me think of. It was good Let's see issue happens. I guess it's got that's all we got this week. Short episode short episode but Yeah so next. Week is Christmas so we won't be releasing on time but we will be releasing Thursday or Friday of next week so some wiggle room there. Yeah so still. It still counts as a Christmas miracle and instill that'd be it's still Hanukkah so it could be your Hannukah present to Oh you know whatever. Whatever your persuasion is? It's still a gift that we don t you still work. They're doing Christmas. Exactly we celebrate. So you're all right. Well we everyone have a good Christmas and we will see you next week. I'm your you're hustling. I am your Choas Alexis. Mary festivus Festivus Who turned our new office into a wave leave pool? The boss was stressed about starting this new business. She thought the ways would help relaxes gravitate. Maybe she'd worry less. If we just had GEICO commercial auto Geiko Kokin sheriff vehicles.

"Thank you for listening to this. Podcast one production available on spotify apple. Podcasts podcast one dot com in anywhere else. You your podcasts Shirley. What you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. You know we are lucky to have charlie. Charlie cuts running the White House. I want to thank Joe. He's an incredible guy his spirit his love of this country done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organisations ever created turning point. Usa He will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives and we are going to fight for freedom campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Hey everybody welcome to this episode of the Charlie Kirk. Show hope you guys are flourishing to the best possible extent you can under state and local law. Please email me your questions. Freedom at Charlie Kirk Dot Com. We've been getting such great response. I love hearing from you. I want to share with you. Something has kind of been put into the media narrative that is so misleading lately. It's something that involves our language. It involves the narrative that's happening nationally. I was searching around on many different news sites and I try to read at least two or three hours of news day. I try to read news. Not Watch news encourage everyone listening to this to try to actually read the information not just watched the information. That you consume. Of course you should be listening to the information here on the Charlie Kirk. Show but reading allows you to find the bias a lot easier allows you to spot it and allows you to expose it when you come across so I was reading this story from the Washington Daily News and really heard the site before. But somebody sent it to me. And the title was this virus creates unprecedented economic woes. So I read it and I said of course I agree with that and then I took a step back and said wait a second. There's something really wrong with the description here and tonight I started to search around other articles. I found one on the Harvard. Business Review that said understanding economic shock of Corona virus and I started to search and I found article after article after article on. Vox DOT COM on Washington Post. That said the economic pain of the Krona virus. But there's something so fundamentally wrong about this can you spot it. It's not the virus that is causing the economic pain. It's the lockdowns. It's our reaction to the virus. Now the virus is causing death. The virus is causing physical pain. But it's our reaction to the virus that is actually caused the economic misery. I'm not the only person point this out. Dennis prager has also mentioned this but I- independently spotted as well where I noticed that the media and the activist media. They're trying make. It seem as if there was no other response that we could have taken in response to the Chinese Corona virus. That the only way that we could have possibly reacted was to shut down the entire economy. And so that's why they're using sloppy language here and the sloppy language is actually giving license and actually giving permission to one of the greatest Attala -Tarian power-grabs in human history. This is giving them permission to do this. Again of the virus is creating unprecedented economic woes. Washington Daily News says no it's not. The lockdown is creating unprecedented economic woes. Did you know? Denmark has now opened their schools a couple of weeks ago. And what kind of backwards world should we? As the United States of America allow an except Denmark to be leading the world. Is that okay? We're allowing Danish socialists. Collectivists to really be the leaders of individual liberty and freedom. There's a couple reasons for this first of all. I understand the left better than most. I fight the left on attacked by the left. I organized against the left on high school and college campuses. I understand what drives these people whether it be a professor in administrator a pundit or someone with a blue check on twitter that has far too much influence for whatever reason whether they're celebrity or someone that used to be part of some sort of rock band in the sixties and seventies that no one even remembers anymore and twitter decided to verify them for whatever reason left leaders love on earned moral superiority. Leftists love to be able to call the shots. They enjoy to be able to feel better than you. And it's not just left us it's it is embedded in human behavior. But it's natural within the furthest extrapolation of leftist governance is liberals will try to say you cannot do something and that gives them a sense of moral superiority. This is exactly why Mayor Eric. Garcetti or Gavin NEWSOM is continuing to push forward with these draconian backwards anti-freedom show the same. Can Be said for Governor Gretchen. Whitmer were. They are restricting liberty in restricting freedom because they love on earned moral superiority no one actually gave them that power except for electing them but it wasn't a referendum. Between when Gretchen Whitmer ran for the governorship in Michigan wasn't a choice. Between let's keep Michigan Open or keep Michigan closed. It was around different issues. Education funding rebuilding schools. The Flint water crisis had something to do with their victory but as the left has been given this moral superiority. They think just because they've been elected they have a license to violate your natural rights. This is nonsense. This is nowhere in the American compact of governance. And so when we talk about the virus we have to differentiate the virus and the lockdowns because the lockdowns are now being exposed as not working the data and the science and the statistics in the math are actually showing us that states. Like Georgia and Florida that have reopened their economies. They're seeing their infection rates. Go down and their death rates go down. We have been lied. Encourage you to go back to our previous episode with Senator Rand Paul where he challenges. Dr Anthony Fauci on a lot of his prognostications and a lot of his predictions and a lot of his incorrect assumptions. There's been a huge cost to this. Suicide is up anywhere between eight to fifteen percent. We've had the final numbers many months from now because they are still being processed and they are still coming in some statisticians estimate that the suicide rate has doubled if not tripled in certain counties areas across the country. We know alcoholism is up. We know marijuana usage is up. We even know that the cocaine price has increased on the streets of New York. How they were able to find that number is probably too much information for us to be able to disclose here because I actually just wondering how on Earth we know. The pricing cocaine is going up without actually maybe arresting drug dealer do we have some sort of investigative task force in New York City. That is finding out the price of cocaine with Haight. Whoever's giving that information should probably not be on the streets of New York Justice Fair Assumption. But the lockdown is fundamentally and distinctly different than the virus and some people say no they're directly correlated. That language is not done intentionally. It's just that SORTA. That's semantics Charlie. You can't dive too far into it. That is not correct because the virus is a biological threat to humanity. The lockdowns is a cultural and real threat to all civilization and now we have seen with Sweden that did not destroy their economy. We have seen with Denmark allowing kids to go back to schools. There are many different ways that we could have handled this entire covid. Nineteen China virus pandemic. I heard someone that was running for the presidency of the United States. A Democrat. Say it does us no use and no utility to go back and to point fingers. What's done is done. This is one of the worst takes I have ever heard in public life. Saying what's done is done. And there's no use in going backwards would basically invalidate the entire department of Justice it would invalidate us going after people that lie cheat. Steal murder now. I'm not putting a moral equivalence between murdering someone and misrepresenting data sets but I am saying that people did die in businesses were shut down and individuals did commit suicide and society was disrupted because of that we should investigate the lies around the corona virus just as much as we investigated the fake Russian collusion hoax. The president of the United States because unlike the fake Russian collusion hoax. This is real. We now know that the data was manipulated. We know that the science was altered. We now know that the scientific community was conjecturing and not being transparent with us. The American people and the world community and those of us that dared question or cross examined. The so-called experts were attacked harshly and repeatedly by that community. We must be very careful how we speak about language of lockdowns versus the language of the virus. It's imperative if we are actually going to find out. What were the true motivations behind some of the statistics? Some of the modeling that we were so dependent reliance and trusting of. We have an amazing panel coming up on the Charlie Kirk show of a medical doctor. Statistician the you are going to really enjoy. Please email me your questions. Freedom at Charlie Kirk Dot com to ask them about this. Immigration is a massive issue in our country. In fact I think it might be the number one issue in America restricting of course illegal immigration and legal immigration which is why I've called for the total and complete suspension of all visas until we get back to pre pandemic employment levels. And even when we do. I support senator. Tom Cotton's raise act to be able to protect American workers and put our country first. There's one person that has been warning against the threat of legal and illegal immigration for some time and that is an coulter. I think you're really going to enjoy this conversation with Ann Coulter. Please email me your questions so I know what you're thinking so I can ask our guests buckle up everybody. I know you're going to enjoy this episode and by the way are episode is brought to you by PC matic dot com slash charlie. It's a weightless next generation antivirus software. They will build the wall around your computer and we'll be talking about how we can actually build the wall in our country with Ann Coulter. Enjoy this episode. Everybody here we go. Hey everybody so honored to welcome to the Charlie Kirk show and coulter. Hi An. How're you doing today fantastic? How are You Charlie? I'm awesome thank you. I have to I compliment you. One of the books when favorite books that you wrote and one of the books that inform me the most about how the left and the Democrat Party operates was the book demonic how the liberal mob is endangering America. I remember reading at many years back and I still go back and reference it because it articulates how the Democrat party activates the mob. They depend on the mob. I think even said they coddle to the mob and they celebrate the mob and it's so it was really prophetic can clairvoyant in some ways. I just want to kick off our conversation today by thanking you because I really clarified a lot of how the American left operates thank you. It's funny I sent. That's what you were going to say. Probably because we're in such a mob blake time At the time I was a history major at Cornell. I did to write that book. I my argument is that the seminal Moment defining the left versus defining. The right we are defined by the American revolution they're defined by the French Revolution And I sent it to one of my French Revolution Chapters. It's as if the Manson gang took over a country and they act like that has similarity to our revolution. In any event I send it to one of my pals from Cornell also a history major and he emailed me back and said how could the two of us have graduated from an Ivy League institution made both majoring in history? And this is coming as news to both. And that's why I put in the book. I looked up various universities I looked up a lot. I'm not sure how many put putting the book But Harvard I think was the only one of the Ivy Leagues that had anything that could possibly include the French Revolution. I mean there ought to be course. After course after course specifically on the French Revolution there are some wonderful historian. Surprising surprising lefties who've written some great books on the on the French Revolution When historians historians. That's what they do but I do think that's an important book for people to understand and you know it's important because of the way the French Revolution is hidden from US completely. I I found it to be so instructive because you're able to see what the left is going to do before they do it. And I love the contrast between the French Revolution American revolution and one of the founding ideals in the French Revolution as they said was fraternity which basically means socialism if you kind of translate the the the linguistic translation to it and it was a completely different type of revolution. It wasn't run around natural rights or about sovereignty building a commune and just complete revenge in mob politics. So I WANNA talk about another book and that is also really. Inform me around the issue of immigration I have I have long been any illegal immigrant. Border Hawk around building the Southern Border Wall and allowing ice to do their job and deporting individuals that have broken immigration law and know it's like some people in the conservative movement. I have really intensified in clarify my position on even legal immigration and saying that we need to be just as serious with restricting visas also. How legal immigration can be equally as harmful? You wrote the Book Audio S- America And with the corona virus spreading and kind of the pandemic. I think has clarified a lot of people's thoughts on this topic. You talked about in Audio. S- America about how immigration is the number one issue in America. you touch. Yeah you touch the third rail in American politics. Can you comment on this? Because you attacked the immigration. You're not alone You just reminded me in. Mickey Kaus is review of my book. I Made Him Review Addio America. He talks about how he always thought the people from. I forget what it was was CIS or numbers. Usa How it wasn't illegal immigration they through legal immigration in two when he said I think I have it linked on my web page. She said something like I always thought they were weird. Why would you throw in legal immigration with illegal immigration and then he goes on to describe as I in a review of my book? Because I do in my book. I mean if you care about the working class driving down wages defending the culture Defending the possibility of Republicans winning elections The difference in legal and illegal immigration really doesn't make a difference In fact legal immigration is. We're worse because they they're voting right away they're accepting welfare benefits right away Taking jobs right away and nothing against the immigrants liberals always do this arguments. They tried to turn an argument about eight government policy into. You're hurting specific people. Well I'd say you're hurting these specific people and they happen to be overwhelmingly. The trump voters also republicans themselves. But we've especially seen I. I assume a lot of people listening to your podcast Care weather this country becomes Venezuela whether there is any possibility of Republican ever winning and other presidential election and the left the Democrat of openly admitted. This refused to believe them as Maya Angelou says when when people tell you something about themselves believe them. Okay WELL DEMOCRATS FOR THIRTY YEARS. Have been saying ha ha ha. We're going to have a demonic control of every election in this country by the process of immigration. We're just GONNA keep bringing in the third world keep bringing in the Third World Nothing against Third World. It's the best but it's simply a fact that that every immigrant group votes overwhelmingly for the Democrats I love admire and want to honor see the Hispanic Republicans the African Republicans the You know Muslim report love. What but looking at this from the perspective of how how. Republicans are going. What kind of country this is going to be in twenty years thirty years maybe even ten years It makes a huge difference that we are bringing in Democratic voters and The the RMC used to say after looking at this right. Dr Addio America. I no longer care where where APPL- presidential candidate stands on one issue or another. I just want someone who can do math. Because if you're bringing in immigrants who vote seven to three against you eight to two against you If they vote fifty one percent against you you're losing and there is no immigrant groups that even coming close to splitting their vote fifty now eventually. I think we'll get them We got the Irish. We got the Italians Eventually we win them over. But this is a pattern for for pretty much all immigrant groups perhaps not surprising. We're the freest country in the world. Most of US despite the chinese-style brainwashing from from K. Through twelve and then through college most of us have some sense of of where our country came from and and the importance of a freedom and free speech and individual rights and religious freedom. It's it's it's in the air we get it from our parents. If we don't get from the schools we get it from books. We get from parades So basically by definition any any immigrant we bring to America is going to make us less free or or bringing a voter will vote for less freedom. That's certainly what the polls show as well It's it's not good. This is why immigration is the most important issue because it will determine every other issue and I'll just conclude that little little speech by saying look at California. Yeah and Virginia. You have me convinced of that. And to kind of give more context we can't have self-defeating principles and so I think a lot of conservatives and a lot of Republicans would agree the American left and what they WANNA do. Our country is a force of malevolence. They WANNA get rid of our first our second our fourth amendment the tenth amendment. And so why the where I now see it more clearly and thanks to you than I even did a couple years ago. Is that if you believe that the left is a force of malevolence which you articulated very well in demonic and Magden your other books then if the numbers show that a certain policy is giving potentially more power that threat of malevolence shouldn't that policy be reconsidered or stopped altogether. And that is how I exactly. Yeah Yeah and then no matter how it's not as if it doesn't matter what reason immigrants or anybody else has for voting for the Democrats Maybe they just want more welfare Maybe they just Want to make it easier to bring their cousins here illegally. Whatever their reasons are they are putting. They are empowering as you say a political party that hates hate it by and large hates historic. America He's I can give you a million examples would like to change this into a different country where they are on top Very UN unequal in terms of of wealth. I mean look a lot like I'd say Brazil but a lot like California. The very very rich at the top the rest of us there are servants We will not be celebrating. Patriotic American holidays It will be oh the Wall Street will have free reign. Do not be fooled by by any populous. Talk from from likes of of Owens's Warren know. Someone like Warren or standards ever got in Man Actually any Democrat. It'LL BE HANDOFF. Wall Street but pedal to the metal on transgender rights. And you know identity politics and turning this group against that group which is so not not our history It actually becomes much more divisive. Much more Racist and an ethnically divisive the way the Democrats would like to order society and that is what they care about. They care about identity politics. They may talk a good game on economic populism owner to know when they're in power None of that ever seems to get done by but They actually build to prohibit. You saying Wuhan flu were tiny virus. That's that's before The Senate right now and they actually don't even care about the immigrants human beings they care about them as voters and that has become so clear is that they couldn't care less about their wellbeing if they get addicted to government and vote the correct way will leverage that so so and but it's not just the Democrats and this is something that I have run into a lot in recent years and again you have helped. Inform me to be even more vocal and more articulate and rational on this. I run into this a lot. I don't think I'm going to run into it very much in the in the near future because of the pandemic but it's going to come back and where people in the Republican business community and I hear this quite often they say we need a certain type of immigrant because Americans won't do those jobs. Can you help respond to that? Because I hear this a lot and farmer even say this to me. I think our audience really blessed by your response to that. Yes a couple of points. One is a lot of us. Get taken in by this too. It's very frustrating and always kind of surprising that these people who you know your shoulder to shoulder allies with them on things like You know the cavenaugh hearings. It's The Wall Street Journal and Chamber of Commerce. And Oh my gosh. They're so great on on this issue on that issue and giving us more freedom in these ways And then when it comes to their bottom line no we want more cheap labor I will say one thing that is sympathetic to them and I think this ought to be part of our response Democrats keep acting for for for my entire lifetime acting like they are best friends the best friend of the workers. I'm going to give you a higher minimum wage. I'm going to give you more Childcare leave time I'm going to give you No children are allowed to work or or you must have X. number of bricks well every time they give American worker something. Oh and making it easier for for discrimination lawsuits on trial lawyers. Bring all of their lawsuits. I bet you lawsuits alone against American corporations costume. Far More than Labor So I I mean I've always thought Republicans need to start pointing this out. They aren't the Democrats. Aren't helping you American workers. They're making your more exp you more expensive and if you are expensive. They're going to go. They're going to outsource the Labor or bring in Chinese or or Indians to do the job instead More pliable probably won't bring a lawsuit aren't aren't aren't American citizens yet. So I I mean I think we can take away but also give businesses something by taking off a lot of these regulations rules minimum wage laws. That make it hard to hire American The Union rules But but beyond that farmers I think it's time for them to realize we're well past the the nineteenth century in fact in the twenty first century it is the only industry in America that hasn't discovered Mechanization at least to hear to hear them. Tell it not all of them. It varies it varies crop to crop But no there are machines that can do this picking you don't you don't have to keep harvesting the crops the way you did in seventeen ninety. We're about to get flying cars and you tell us you have to bring in all of these peasants to be out working the fields working field. No no you don't now. It's one thing to say. Well I'm going to be patriotic and I'm going to be the only strawberry farmer who's GonNa buy these machines? But that's where you where you need a central government to say no more cheap labor. You better figure out how to automate Your Business And as a lot of the Chamber of Commerce types I just not not all of them. I'm sure probably few who don't who like our country But I I mean for a lot of them. It's just they're they'll they'll eat America dry and then move onto the next country. It is possible to shrink the overall Pie Of what people get in America while increasing your own slice and that's what what employers are doing when they're bringing in workers that are cheap to them but expensive to the rest of us because we have to pay I mean just say nothing of the food housing medical care throw in you know the crimes they commit the anger babies. They have the way they switch. They switch governments. I had a I had a friend. this is just a perfect little metaphor and synopsis How to really hot restaurants in a purple state in a resort town too hot rushton to hottest restaurants and he told me that all of its busboys were were were Mexicans most of them illegal and said Oh yeah. These kids won't work. They come in on their on their so Skateboards I said you know. Come on. You're you're in a glamorous resort town you couldn't get a white kid who's taken a gap year but no white kid would work in a kitchen if he's the only one speaking English Anyway because of all of that excellent Mexican help The the Purple State flipped heavily. Blue obamacare passed and he's out of business now that all ties together which is the cost is also giving the leftists power and that's not insignificant for those of US know I mean there goes your First Amendment your Second Amendment the ability to protect your family to go to church. You get a Gavin newsom. You get an Andrew Cuomo get at Jay Pritzker instead of a Ron Santa's and Oh yeah and and so according to the Department of Agriculture between two thousand fourteen in two thousand sixteen about seventy percent of the hired crop for more foreign born about almost half were in the United States illegally. And we know the cost. We know the the the financial cost of illegal immigration about one hundred thirty two billion dollars annually and it could exceed two hundred billion dollars by twenty twenty-five but and you clarified that very nicely on the farming issue but let's also focus on the tech visa issue. People say Charlie. We need more h. One B. Visas for skilled labor specifically because American workers. Don't have the capacity to be able to do this job or we don't have enough of it. What's your response to that? And when you come across that argument I know a lot of people. Listen to this. Podcast are hearing a lot as well Well I have even less sympathy for where the tech firms. Because they're not our allies on anything so I'll just let it rip on them. No this is endangered servitude. Something that is that is prohibited in this nation. Why is it indentured servitude? It's not it's not the same as slavery but you are attached to a particular firm So so he most of the h. One B. workers certainly in Silicon Valley. This has been written about widely admitted on NPR by one of the Indian H. One B. Work workers quote in Addio S- America saying we're just doing standard programming. Work yes of course on American could do this. But we're cheaper because we can't leave and go to a different firm and again. Oh my gosh. The costs can be enormous. They'll bring in the whole family there. You know aging parents suddenly. They're sucking in social security and Chris. Christie is telling us who we have to tighten our belts we need to means test social security know how about not letting tech firms and and every firms a tech firm now but bring in tech workers whom they can pay less to and the tech worker can't go someplace else so they're attached the be attached to an employer And even if it weren't attached employer by virtue of being here that puts them on the pathway to citizenship. Aren't people I mean just by and large I overall on the entire immigration as you. This is number one just to government policy. We can change it anyway. We want to. I think we ought to change it to a way that benefits the people who already live here including the immigrants who've come when you're talking about immigration you ought to be looking. I think any country ought to be looking around the world. Picking the best immigrants we can get. These are the ones we want. They think we think they're going to fit in. They'RE GONNA learn English they'll learn. They'll they'll love our country as trump always says. I think that's a really beautiful line from him. We want them to love our country. These are the ones we're picking well with the H. One B. Visa with all of these were her visas. We're not picking it all. We're we're outsourcing it to Microsoft they and their criterion It certainly isn't are they gonNA love our country. Will THEY FIT in? We'll they pay more to the government than they're getting back. No they're criterion is. Will this save me money? Can I pay this guy less than I can pay an American? That's it and it might even be more malevolent for some of these tech elites like Amazon owns the Washington Post. What if they know that they might be bringing future Democrat voters? I'm not sure if it's that multi there I don't know if there's that much of a multi multi dimensional thinking but I'm sure it would more that they don't get attacked by left us who pretend to care about workers right there all they pretend to care about robber barons but oh they'll keep their lips zipped if they know this is bringing in them. They're extra democratic workers or voters rather in that was interesting by one challenge at a little bit and it's not a huge disagreement. Is You said we might have smaller Pie. I'm not convinced if we restricted immigration. That we would because it could potentially keep the left out of power which therefore would make more economic prosperity and bottom-up american-based entrepreneurship possible. And and you're right. That's a great point. You're right you're right you're right. I don't WanNa totally. Of course you're right. I don't WanNA totally. Let's just say yield that argument if we will that that that that just because of this will have less likely economic prosperity so and one of the thing you talk about. A lot is revoking birthright citizenship of Which? I'm incomplete support of when I advocate for this on college campuses. It's not always received very well. Which does not concern me by the Social Justice Warriors but one thing that does make me pause is when people say it's not constitutional. Can you build that out how it is constitutional to revoke birthright citizenship? Yes what they're referring to and I do explain this further detail in America for anyone who wants Once at night. Not just off the top of my head trauma with footnotes What referring to our post civil war amendments these were all related to ending involuntary servitude. It was the freeing of the slaves even justice black who Democrat nominee to the Supreme Court former K. K. or Even he said the civil rights amendments are about Black Americans. That's it and that's why the fourteenth amendment is phrased and that sort of unusual way referring to A person being a citizen In the jurisdiction where they are born but The idea was we didn't want to fight this war freeing the slaves and then have have the the slave state saying well. Okay you're not slaves but we're not giving you the rights of a citizen. No this would accomplish at once and for all and it ought to ought to occur. Most Americans Immediately after the Civil War America it takes a lot to get a constitutional amendment passed two thirds of the states. Two-thirds of the Senate I it's a huge. There has to be a mass feeling about something. Why on Earth after the civil war would Americans be thinking now if an if a Mexican eight months pregnant runs across the border? We want to make damn sure her child as a citizen. No it's preposterous. It's insane it was slipped into a footnote. It was not the official ruling of the Court by Justice. Brennan in nineteen eighty. He was a sneaky little Irishman It was and it was not. It was not in the law. It's called DICTA and that is just like Chitchat. In the opinion if it doesn't have to do with the ruling it's not legally binding and yet because he dropped this footnote. Oh and by the way. What did you sight you? Cite a law passed by Congress. Why no did he pass. Go anything in the constitution. No he cited a book by some guy. No one's ever heard of saying well If we make the children of legal immigrants citizens what's the difference in doing the same for illegal immigrants? Oh I don't know give me six hours and I could explain But it is. It has never been passed by by A congress that yes these are going to be citizens The court has never ruled. Yes these are citizens is just a? It's it's just something people do out of habit I feel pretty strongly that it went to the Supreme Court and it wasn't being Decided five four by left-wing zealots. Who Don't care what the law is. I mean judge Richard Posner for example. And he is no friend to conservative but he is a very very smart. I'm I I must admit Seventh Circuit Judge. Put there by Ronald Reagan. But much more of a libertarian and libertine streak might say most quoted federal years ago. He concurred in an opinion involving an illegal immigrant For the sole purpose of calling on Congress to put an end to this nonsense saying there is nothing in the constitution. There's nothing in the law that requires you children born to someone who is in our country illegally to be treated as citizen. Pass a law making that clear and end this nonsense His point was all these all these people are streaming into our border. Eight months pregnant Dying in the desert you're creating a magnet for bad behavior. That's leading to horrible horrible outcomes but also I mean it's just madness like I said before that we don't have control who gets to come live in our country and be our fellow citizen. It's it's craziness that it's up to them and they can play this game of Writ Rover with the Border. Patrol ha ha. I've dropped the baby almost citizen. You can't throw me out now. No it's crazy I really wish trump would sign an executive order because it is just something in the air that people act like they have to do but is not something they have to do is not allow in. The law is not in. The constitution is not in a court ruling. And it's also important to note that it says subject to the jurisdiction thereof and many countries across the world have birthright citizenship or they would scoff or laugh at the idea of potential birthright citizenship. That you could just come on. I think they call it. Oh the birth tourism talking about Naval Hospital store them. Yes yes that is they have. They hide their pregnancies. There are lessons on how to hide their pregnancy. They have specific beautiful. Yes they have specific beautiful. Hotels happens a lot in California They'll be you know shopping down on Rodeo. Drive eight months pregnant. They have specific hospitals for the Chinese. Ladies to go to Just so their kids can be American citizens and the whole family can come then and we need to treat. Citizenship is something very very unique and special not to be just given out haphazardly. And that that is. I hope it's a lesson that conservatives take away from this conversation and more broadly because when when we don't think thoughtfully and honestly protectively over who are actually citizens of our country. Things can get out of control very very quickly and so in Enclosing and here corona virus has I think really changed a lot in a lot of people's eyes and now you see that immigration has been now ranked as a top two or three issue in certain battleground states. It certainly was there before. But I think it's even higher especially towards the Chinese Communist Party and a lot of what the Chinese Communist Party has been trying to do in our country. What what specifically do you think politically? Because you're in tone with the base. Do think the president should run on to be able to contrast with Joe Biden and the Democrats who basically their position is. Let's just bring in as many people as we can from around the world as long as it benefits. Us politically well. We asked to do some things but absolutely immigrations. The I mean that's how we won the last time But to avoid cynic saying yeah you talk a good game. You never do anything. He's gotTa do some of this stuff. I mean signing the the anchor-baby executive order. He's been promising to do that for three. And a half years now it. It's important That specific issue but to lure the Democrats as you say Charlie running on a vastly unpopular issue I got the Democrats position pollsters. I'm sorry to interrupt end but just it's interesting the national pollsters in the intelligence that I run into even on conservative Republican circles. Say No American support in gration the we need to be the pro immigrant party. Can you comment on that? Because I run into that a lot and I say you're totally misguided but can you comment on that. Well there's no evidence for it but other than that it's a good point I mean every time Americans have been allowed to vote on immigration. And it's probably at least a dozen times in the last twenty years from I always there so many important propositions out of California prop one eighty seven hundred ninety four. I was going to say that. But I'm confused out with the affirmative action one. That's okay. I got confused so proposition. One eighty-seven Oh four times the The Congress has tried to slip through an amnesty the United States Congress in the dark of night and what shot it down. It was never you know Fox News standing up saying to the to the ramparts Fox News viewers. Oh No Fox. News was offering amnesty It wasn't even a whole lot of Talk Radio House. It somehow would got out to the people and four times. Both Republicans and Democrats have tried to slip. Amnesty throws and the American people have stood up rejected. There have been a lot of immigration. I'm initiatives on on ballots in this state and that state they always pass overwhelmingly even even in states. That are supposed to be. You know the most. We've not balanced it's been going on forever so there's an we elected. Donald trump ran on building the wall. there are a bunch of liberals. I keep pointing out Frank Bruni in the New York Times Smart Liberals Andrew Sullivan New York magazine Thomas Friedman and at the New York Times begging the Democrats. Stop being open borders. This is this is nine to one against us. Please stop doing this. Frank Bruni described as Do the Democrat Party deciding. They were going to be the interim to wh Donald Trump if trump is for it. We're against So the Democrats realize this is a big mistake for them to lure Biden. And it's and it's not gonna be very hard to get him to do anything you want to lure him into coming out making this election about immigration. is absolutely trump's best passed to victory but he does have to do something otherwise. It's just going to be a bitter pill for at least some of his supporters that that he keeps talking a good game and not doing anything. Well and I'll tell you that. With thirty six million people out of work that that luring Biden into that conversation if he can have a conversation which remains to be. We'll we'll be awfully effective so final question and which is just as we look at the immigration fight within our own Republican Party the Republican Party and the conservative circles as we start to try to talk about this issue. I look at it as it's either you can put. Corporate interests are a political party. I or put your country first and I can't remember where I saw this. I saw a couple years ago and I've been just repeating it is. We're a country that has an economy within it man economy that the country. Can you comment on that? Yeah closing yeah I mean I've say to the Selfish businessman I have. What kind of what kind of regulatory environment do you think you're going to get in a country where a Republican can not be elected President You WanNa go take your chances with Nancy. Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Elizabeth Warren. I mean. It's it's just crazy. It's as I say they're like they're like short works. All appetite no-brainer. Can you think ahead five years? What this country will look like Look at California. I mean it's right in front of our eyes. We don't have to speculate look at Virginia. Look at New York businesses pulling out people moving out that will be the entire country If we don't put a halt on on immigration well it's well put and thank you so much for joining program. We have to have you on again. And any book that we can promote to steer audience towards. I know they'd love to to help support you. Well I can't thinking listening to what both talks. Msnbc if you're bored with the Russia stuff which I kind of am I really think. Resistance is futile is the simplest clearer clearest funniest explanation of it and then you can move on with. Your Life. It's a I mean it's not just Russia but the whole media trump craziness and all you really need to know about Russia. It's a it's a good star trek reference to so anyway and God bless you.

We're GONNA do around this whole idea but we have heard rahm Emanuel before say let a crisis go to waste and so if the left has long held policy objectives that they are now to get put into law. Would it be fair to logically? Then assume that if they have these long held policy objectives they want to put into practice and they see the crisis way to do that. Aren't there some people out there that might be crisis seekers that actually might be seeking out a crisis to be able to implement their long held policy objectives and beliefs. And if that's the case will they actually be quick to stop the crisis when they know the data no longer supports it so thought exercise. Think about it and might actually help you figure out who is on the best interest of our country. American sovereignty and the future of American prosperity. I think it'd be very very helpful. Who are the crisis seekers? Who are the people out there that might actually be going out of their way to create a crisis? I think you know the answer to that question.

Hour 2 Nadler-Barr hearings

"In. New. York. Mark Simone, I'M W. Unless they get to bring you all the latest on our crazy mayor, our wacky governor, these ridiculous democratic hearings going on, we'll get to Alan Ilan and a whole lot more. So I thought that was great. The mayor speaking out lashing out at the police. What is wrong with him? What was his problem that they used an unmarked car? I don't know if he's ever seen the NYPD but. They they do use unmarked cars It's pretty normal I. Think That's what detectives drive around in. Isn't it? Mark Ours. And they're not unmarked cars Listen anytime. You see two guys in a black car with black wall tires. You can spot a police, car a mile away. This was a white fan, but they pulled up in the van. Now, the woman they arrested was a total criminal If all the allegations are true and apparently they are because and first of all, what does that mean? Oh, you can't have an unmarked car. The protesters have unmarked cars, the antiques. A. Anarchists use unmarked cars, these protests, I'm sure there's some legitimate protesters out there Maybe they're all gone by now, but it's the whole protests is taken over by professional. Anarchists who have lots of on markers, they got supplied cars. They got all sorts of stuff. They got a whole supply chain, they're running there. They had what we're supposed to be emergency aid cars. In other words, they bring their own ambulances, unmarked cars that were emergency police got a few of them as bar explain yesterday and found out. They were filled with weapons with Molotov cocktails, kerosene filled balloons. Industrial Grade. Fireworks to create fires protesters there. Pizza. Yeah. Peaceful. Supply cars unmarked. They can have all the unmarked cars. They want look at the that incident with the bats they got the video, you can see unmarked car, pull up, open the trunk and distribute bats to everybody, which were then used to attack the police. So they're unmarked cars. He only a word from the mayor says the thing. Police one on car. He speaking out, he's lashing out today at the Nypd what an idiot what a ridiculous lunatic this mayor is and it's like that that fat waddling Yutz that dirty slimy Jerry. Nadler today he spoke out about about in defending the protests that they arrest this protester where the hell was see for the last three weeks when everybody's getting shot and robbed in the streets if only. But where isn't that look for that? Useless people and then, but that don't worry. The governor is on top of it. He jumped right in there yesterday and said, if you have a baseball team and you can't play in your state, what what? What brought that up wha-. Why would he bring that up? I have no idea. He's got lowest. It, what what was even thinking telling baseball teams if there's too much virus. In your state. Here and play. Didn't just quarantine like twenty seven states. You can't come here. Why if they're so bad. Why is he telling them to come here? If you. You come from Florida, you get locked up for two weeks if the baseball team comes and that's only one, hundred, eighty, seven people with the staff and everything, they can do whatever they want. What is he thinking and I, don't get. Find the clip here. I offer to Major League baseball if you're having problems playing in other states com play here. What does he sound like? He's threatening everybody I told. You're having. Good come here. New York's date could host any major league baseball. See I. Don't know if you realize how stupid you are how stupid? I. Were Really Stupid. But thank God, he explains it slowly listen talks to you. You're he talk to you like there's some kind of mental patient like he has to explain it. Slowly state could host any Major League baseball game that any teams want to play, and they could play those games in our stadiums. Talking like that, you could host. and. What the Hell is. He talking about what I don't get this? Where would they play the game? The Yankees Yankee Stadium, the mets are using city. Feel. Where would they play? Well, I, guess, since you don't have fans, you could use probably college ballparks and some other ballparks that are available. Okay. That's true. But where what college? Well, what college has a? Stadium, that's equivalent of a major league stadium. Well, they're all gonna be relatively close to majorly. dimensions the capacity. Bigger. Yeah. I guess. So. But what's the incentive for the team you could play in the MARLINS stadium. or You could come play at Poughkeepsie University. Stadium. I don't think. Is that really? Where's the game? You can't stadium in Of North. Haven. So I don't know it doesn't sound great plan to me, but I like the way he explained New York state could host any Major League baseball game that any teams. Of slow imagine if he was a ambulance Dispatcher v dead. So you think he orders lunch with that kind of. A. Dinner. Sandwich. So, he's still upset. You know there were protests last night I saw some in Manhattan thousands of people crammed together. Protesting has been going on all the time. He never says a word never says a word, but thousand people, three, thousand in the Hamptons crammed together for a concert These people in the Hamptons So stir crazy, it was chain smokers. Drive, in concert. They drew circles where you could park in the cars were spaced apart. It's the hamptons everybody got out of cars mingled together. So he is fury grossly disrespectful to fell in New Yorkers. And the Department of Health is going to do a full investigation. This is like an obscene phone call. Mostly. The town of Southampton going to have a problem. I don't know how they approved that permanent. the promoters are going to have a problem. Well. The threaten people. Now, there's a guy named Jay Schneiderman. He is the The mayor, you call it of Southampton. He says, they had guidelines and everything. They just simply weren't followed. If you give them out give them the guidelines and they'll follow it. Don't blame. Allowed people to congregate in front of the stage that was not part of the permit we would never had allowed that. Yeah, you gotTa give him credit who could afford who have seen this coming. that. If you're allow a thousand wealthy elites from new. York. The pushy EST upper east siders that they would violate a guideline I wouldn't have pictured that at all. But it happened and The problem is now acting about any permits for any of these concerts out there. So. That's the end of that. But what he's threatening the town of Southampton, what could he do to them? What could he do? Withhold tax revenue. Everybody the billion dollars I'm sure they can generate their own tax revenue. They don't need him for anything. So He president trump didn't. It's something is going on with him. A couple of things. He's doing this way to gracious. Why doesn't anybody? Who like me? That's? The other thing he's picking his worst enemies to do interviews with Chris, Wallace hates him Chris. Wallace campaigns against him every week. So he did Chris Wallace for an hour. Now, the other thing is axios. This is a super liberal left-wing trump aiding. Website and they have a TV show which is not really seen by a lot of people on HBO O or somewhere. Jonathan Swan who's very good writer, but he's a real left-wing trump ater very biased guy you seem on MSNBC, all the trump sat down with him for a twenty minute interview. What does that'll about what would? It's actually pretty good in a way because. If you're going to be debating in the fall. What you WANNA do is sit down for the toughest interviews. Get hammered at a thousand times that we get your act together. You get your answers tweaked. You get you. You hear every bad question. You could ever get and you develop your answers and by the fall you are ready to go in a debate biden who's never done A. A tough interview never been challenged. Never asked any tough questions when he gets in the debate, be the first time it ever happened, and he's totally totally rusty can't I. It's been a millionaire since he's been answered a tough question. But one of the things they hit him with When you talk to Putin, did you discuss the Russians putting a bounty on our troops? A really hit him with that question. He said, no, I, didn't what? Why didn't you explained to them because it's not true. There's no evidence ever happened. There's it's a made up. New. York Times Story. and you know the new. York Times, when they make it up, they don't say source when they make it up. Totally we thousand sources. We have seventy two sources that supposed to make it sound more believable. There are no sources anywhere Our intelligence agencies don't think had happened. Your Times has changed his story a little. because now they're what? When they try to lie, they'll say intelligence agencies are mixed about it's they're not totally with which means. When it's mixed. Intelligence agencies are divided over whether it happened. That means it didn't happen. When it's when they're not sure it happened, they don't put it in the briefing. And you're not sure even happen when it's just a rumor. From New York Times, would you bring that up to Putin? I, don't think. So I think you've got to be kind of certain that did happen before you confront him. Yes. First of all, if he brought it up, if he said, this Putin would say what? This, the New York Times, Putin would say. That's the end of it who trust the New York Times? Did you the big thing today? This is what you WanNa Watch for today besides the bar hearings yesterday the big hearings today, the Tech World Social Media World is on trial today. In Congress, they'll how they have to come testify Zuckerberg, the twitter people all the tech people and this'll be the first one where Jeff Bezos is on the stand there. They're all going to be grilled. Now the thing is. These tech giants specially facebook twitter. Google, all of that stuff. They really need to be regulated their private companies facebook twitter larger. Hey, we can edit whatever we want. We can band whatever we want. It's a private site. It's our site, but it's become so big now. At some point, you're gonNA have to rule, it's a utility. The public depends on it as a utility has to be some regulation. The big arguments they censor anything conservative. All conservatives are censored on twitter that cut your following the cut, your friends they. They throttled down your your tweets. So they don't get seen by many people that do to everybody. conservative. They don't do liberals. You saw that Don Jr.. put a video of some doctors talking about hydroxy chloroquine, which most top doctors would recommend but they said it was false information. Took it. So you might say, well, they're really being fussy about, but they don't do that with anything liberal anything, Pro Biden. They're not facile. These guys have to answer for today, basis is going to have to answer for taking total control of Commerce in America and that kind of stuff a couple of things you gotTa do here one. Tech giants in the past, a pet at testify like Bill Gates others and Bill Gates messed up. He wasn't transparent enough to be very honest and very transparent. and. You got to look like you're trying to do the right thing. So Zuckerberg has been through this member. He's testified a few temp, so he knows. The routine, he knows the act you got to put on. So he'll be okay, They're worried about basis. He's never testified before, but I've seen basis in some meetings, he just says whatever the hell you WanNa hear, he's very good at that, and when you see him speak, he's a real nerdy guy, he's a goofy nerdy guy. You wouldn't think so but it helps them because he he'll say anything you. WanNa hear and he's very goofy and he's got this big goofy laugh. So it makes him seem humble. That makes not that he has, but it makes them seem that way. So keep an eye on today to see what happens with these tech companies. you gotta stay cool under fire. You can't get mad. Now. Here's the other thing to bear in mind this sort of subtext to all of this. There's Republicans and Democrats look like they're gonna come after these guys. But this Congress and these are tech companies with many many billions, trillions, zillions of dollars they have bought off everybody in Congress. Democrat Republican, all these congressmen. No. There are massive checks coming to their packs to their campaigns, massive checks. So nobody's really going to do anything to these guys. They have bought off everybody on both sides. Did you read this story about Moscow's? And his house. It was so sad, he was in an interview. The of the explained. You know he had this unbelievable mansion. In Beverly Hills, it is the most. Beautiful, unbelievable. L.. It's a resort and he. Spoke about how sad it was. He felt lonely. He was alone and he was so lonely in this house, and it was like the great gatsby was wandering around alone. So he sold the house. That's why he's selling that house and he remembered when he had a little tiny apartment, it was better because in that way, he slept in the factory at night and he worked harder, but he was so lonely in the big house, I. You know. I. Was just up all night crying I felt so bad for the. Edges. I wanted to do something to help them the poor guy. What the hell was that interview about it also follow this guy around. He's with five thousand was gorgeous women. You've ever seen. He knows every. Earth what the hell was he so lonely about what do you think? He really sold the House I can't figure this out. But that termites. There's some some reason really sold this house you so lonely and he was happier with this little apartment. Guys with eighty, billion, you could buy yourself any little apartment you live wherever you want stop whining. There's nothing. More moving to the average American in the middle of a quarantine to read about a guy with fifty billion, who's lonely? Now who suffering. Anyway check out the page a lotta good stuff up there. If you didn't see the hearing yesterday or even if you did go to google a page, I put up a bunch of on one page. These are the rudest most disgusting. Jerry. Nadler moments is so slimy in creepy.

That's not what was you put on? TV would? Not GonNa work in Middle America. No I know I'd love to have heard that conversation with Nadler insisting that he has a high cure rate. No, you guys. Me Lead this. No, there were many hilarious. I watched about two hours of it. I didn't really need to You Watch ten minutes and get the gist, and also they weren't letting the Democrats aren't leading bar answer questions. That was one of the one of the highlights of it. They were. So unbelievably rude I. Don't know who the Democrats think they're winning over with that I, mean I. Guess, it Pleases Their Hard Core Base to watch Democrats be nasty to bar, but I can't see any independent or worse humanely. Possible swing voter looking that I'm thinking Oh. Yeah. Those Democrats, I WANNA. Give them more power. In the two hours or as were a few exchange I couldn't turn it off because it was. So it was so hilarious Nadler was fantastic I particularly like. Jim Jordan. About what I was just tying that he said whatever their little formal languages Excuse me Mr Chairman but I think we need to give the witness time to answer the questions and not just keep firing the questions Adam Said something like. I will disregard the members rudeness. recognized. Thank you. Thank you. recognized. I hope that I hope it gets replayed I'd I was riding my call last night? So Msnbc on all night, but it was on mute and I did I I didn't hear they're bragging about, but I did see that MSNBC seems to be doing high fives over it. So I, don't think we have to worry about independence getting a Gandra who's going to be running the country of trump loses I also I think I mentioned to you last week They should know the Democrats by the way right now at trump headquarters there editing that video is going to be used in a million TV commercials in the. Back House. Yeah. I hope. So I've been sending around to you know some of my friends in this. In in this in in the media business some of the clips I. Wish they would find for me. The ones that made me laugh the most. I, I've I've been pessimistic about trump from reelection as I. think you, I think you know or have into that. But but recently, I, mean, it really is just like like a speed of my book resistance is futile. It doesn't. It almost doesn't matter what trump does. He would be better off. You know following Baden into the basement just shutting up until. because it's it's the Democrats who weren't gonNA. Lose this war and yet again, a long time. I. Mean Two, thousand, sixteen from pater, and that's back when he was good making all those great promises and jared wasn't running things, people who hated them back in two, thousand, sixteen I now have more of them saying to me, you know I, hate trump i. didn't vote for him in two, thousand, sixteen, I watched that hearing today I have to vote for trump. I, can't let these people run the country. No Bar said and been there five hours without a break and he said, we take I. Know? Jordan. Jordan. Common courtesy, every witness guts and. Okay. Listen. If you didn't see it, you gotta just keep keep checking c-span this weekend. Play it. We have it on our web page. Today, we have a bunch of highlights delude US moments of Jerry Nadler. Mark Simone. Yes. I'll send it to you but. Hey, the other thing if you're the Democrats putting. Nadler. On TV, he's a repulsive figure to the middle of America. The other thing is riots mobs. In the you know that van shows up in arrest this criminal who is destroying a police cameras, people like that. Why would Democrats think that America doesn't want that to go on? Well, I'm I. This is I've been thinking that and one thing that sort of concerns me is, they seem to be absolutely convinced that they are winning this election, taking back the House and taking back the Senate and they just don't care because. Wow. Wow. Do I agree with you there? They've. They've thrown their lot in with black lives, matter matter and and the Mt Isa Now, they do have the media helping them by by not showing. Americans, anything that's happening and insisting that these are all peaceful protesters I. Really Find It. Kind of amazing that anyone uses the phrase peaceful protesters. These days I mean, we use it on our side, but you know while showing some lunatic and a helmet and black mask throwing throwing Molotov cocktail, but they actually still use it totally on. Well, you know you could not show it on TV. But anybody who lives in Manhattan who lives in New York our lives anywhere near can walk around and see the streets filled with junkies with homeless with protesters with muggers with three hundred shooting last month. I. I wouldn't be surprised I'm. Not. Kidding if Donald. Trump takes New York in the fall. People are disgusted here. They should be and I again raise my demand that you your friends Ray. Kelly to run for mayor and save the city or or anoint someone finds some other strong lawn law and order candidate I. Really Think I really think. A strong Giuliani type could win no matter how much the new. York Times bashes the guy and no matter what the polls show New Yorkers can't be fooled. They know. New. York can be made safe and and this is mad. What's happened to New York. Absolutely. Insane. So how did this happen? How did we get stuck with? Cuomo, de Blasio, and Schumer buoyed. Here's a guy who really deserted us when we need them, he's nowhere to be found in all this chaos. Well, you know I've been predicting this for years my mugs about about racial. Demagoguery and crime, and a lot of it is the crimes throughout for those of you who grew up in the New York area the big the big showcase crimes through the seventies and eighties Kiki, Kiko Garcia. The, you'll be white today and be attacked by the Muslims on the police I under Dinkins, and then totally different situation when it happened under under Giuliani. But you know it was a long hard haul to to on Juliane and then Bloomberg to completely transform New York City into a wonderland into into a safe city and mostly for the most vulnerable and. And I mean since before that book in that Book I've been warning warning anyone who would listen as soon as Democrats get control of the levers. Again, they're going to put it right back. They'RE GONNA put criminals on the street, and after twenty years, it takes to clear out the jungle, but you stop clearing out the jungle and it comes back overnight. Wow, that's another book. You should get get the. Current. But but get the book do not. A mug Mug, this book that. From the seventies to Obama, it's really fun. If you're especially if you're like me and grew up in the Connecticut area and very vaguely remember those cases, one of the things that's funny. What you're seeing now I mean, you always see the media will not tell us the truth about crime is at the initial claims always involving racist police, some some poor innocent Dominican or something that those are the headlines Stories, and then you know weeks maybe months later, the truth comes out and that will be whispered You know on a small item on page eighteen, the media looks at it shoes. While so besides the other end coulter books get the book Mug and go re read that it's also follow on twitter and culture on twitter New Website looks great and Culture Dot Com. The new column comes out tonight and and coulter thanks for being with us. Talking Mark Simone, bye-bye. Take care or every check out the webpage. There's a lot of good stuff up there. As I was saying, we've put together a bunch of videos go to here's a whole bunch of video rudest moments of Jerry Nadler, watch. How creepy this? Nadler gets in the hearings. Hey, also, here's another video. Andrew Cuomo in real life doesn't wear a mask. Doesn't wear a mask, take a look at the video. Also, this is a great moment. This is a little private conversation Regis and David Letterman. Take a look at that. It's all up on the web page. Go to seven, ten, W., O. R. DOT COM, Slash Mark Seven, ten, W. O. R.

Cardi B Files For Divorce From Offset, Wendy Williams Spies on Naked Neighbor - Daily Pop 09/16/20

"And Welcome to daily we have so much to talk about today. But let's start with the biggest headline. Cardi B. Just filed for divorce and we have insider info about what went wrong and source tells E. News that Cardi does not trust offset. It's been hard on her since her is last cheating scandal and there have been rumors about him being unfaithful again in court papers Cardi describes their marriage as quote irretrievably broken. Now, these have been really public about their. About his infidelities and as recently as January she told vote he cheated but she loved him and decided that he was going to stay with ambitious fight all the haters on instagram. And offset has apologized for his behavior. In the past we've reached out to both of their reps for comment. Are you guys surprised by this news? Not. At all I think that we forget that celebrities are real people and a lot of people are going through hard times and their relationships right now being stuck in the House during cove it. What I'm surprised is that everybody believes social media. This suman looked happy she looked fulfilled her man was buying her purple Yellow Orangeburg and and it looked like she was happy this is a testament. People only put what they want to see on social media. I feel like Hardee's been really good about sort of balancing. That's why I feel like this comes as such a shock like usually there are warning signs, right? Like if they're having problems, she goes on some sort of rant we kind of see it coming this time. It really came out of the blue for me but then I kind of felt like I was thinking about it this morning i just hope that if she is deciding to leave him that she's truly deciding to leave him this time and she's not doing this out of anger or for shock value or she's acting on emotion. I, really hope she feels like Aright I've had enough of his behavior I. Really Don't feel like we're going to be able to work it out as a couple anymore and I've decided to just end this relationship I. Hope it's over for real. I I don't I don't want them to reconcile. Then have this happen again because it just builds his unhealthy pattern. I remember whenever she did do that vogue article and I did like transparency way she was talking about she's like, yes, there was cheating and then on top of the cheating where a normal married couple has normal marriage fights you about. Leaving the refrigerator. Campbell. You know. Door. But I mean, you're GonNa ruin your food as a bad example leaving the towel on the floor things like that. But this one really did kind of it. Kind of shocked me because I thought, they were on the path of getting back together and maybe that person that kind of believes that social media hype sometimes because I did see a lot of cute things and you know over the last several months, he's gotten her so many. Oh, as always he gives her so many gifts. and. Also like I have to like language, bring this back to the pandemic and I've said this before probably on this show but I say to my friends all the time I'm not worried about the people who have this relationship where they bicker. I'm not really worried about the people who have kids what I'm worried about is the couple whose normally so independent and have so many things going on and get validation from. People who are now stuck in a home with each other who haven't spent this much time together because they were touring are doing a book tour or doing X., Y. and Z.. Those are the couples that truly worried about because during now getting to see your husband or wife in a whole different light right and it's like get Outta my face and my space and I can't have you. Another thing. If they are locked down I mean I know that there's been rumblings that he's continued to be unfaithful and a lot of women have supposedly come forward like what is he having time to do that Oh with you want to do with the edge. If you WANNA do it, you will find time. Wheels away. Kovin tricky. It's one thing if you're going to work or whatever, but it's just like I don't. Like it's not like I'm finding reasons to leave the house. I don't have any I. Don't have any reasons. So I totally feel you. Well, the one thing that makes me a little nervous about what you were saying Morgan about hopefully, this is exactly what she really wants is that there's this other twists, Cardi. Filed an amendment to her original papers. A day later, she now wants joint custody of their daughter Coulter and wants to keep amicable her original papers as for primary and legal custody. So within a day. Yeah she changed what custody she wants I mean she claims that her lawyer did not like. Correctly follow her wishes, but that's I'm. As somebody. Has. A lot of lawyers in the past year, it's very tricky for that to happen she. was like F- him. He's GonNa. Get to see his daughter because behavior. Forget I'm done with this. Put that in there that we're going to do blah blah. Blah and the next day she probably was rational again and felt like, all right despite what I feel about my daughter's father this is still her father I still want her grow up with him and have him be a part of her life. So I'm going to amend that and that's why the change happens what she rational or was she able to see the comments section of people coming back and saying you're being ruthless and this is not the way it's to happen and that's a nice way I'm saying. Let me let you know something people ride for offset and I truly, and honestly believe women have the right to protect their children. But last your husband has shown that he can inflict physical or emotional harm. Are you and your daughter that whole thing that full legal custody? Is kind of damaging and it's unnecessary. So she probably was like you know I was a woman scorned. I. Burned his shit now I'm sorry let's go and try to be amicable and do this Gwyneth. Paltrow way. Right and I think you know whenever you do that whenever you you know we hear about a celebrity couple and she wants full custody and all control you think, okay. She clearly has an issue with offsets parenting style and you don't it's now. Created that narrative whether it was an accident or not. But now we think Cardi obviously has an issue with him and people are now going to be like what's the issue I wonder why she doesn't want culture with offset but you know what it is to. You gotta be careful because when you fire, you always give fire back. If you're going to say that I am X Y and Z this do this do this hood he scared enough then he will put your business out there he will let everybody know if you think I'm this way. Let's talk about when you did X. Y. and Z. maybe that's why she match. Drag because you know what I Mean it. Anyways, I hope that it works out and this sex a divorced no matter what. But hopefully, it becomes amicable like she says, she wants okay onto Wendy Williams who confessed something I'm still a little surprised about she was on late night with Seth. Meyers where shaded she passes time by spying on her neighbors with binoculars and some of them are naked. There is a a an apartment building across and the man takes showers and the shower is right there at the window. And I watch. How what are you? What are you seeing I'm assuming the window isn't. A head to toe. No IT'S A it's a head to ankle. Still, most of the good parts. When he when I heard, you were looking at people with Benach. You thought it was about passersby but I feel like what you're doing now is like borderline criminal. Tom. First of all windy looks amazing. I'm so happy when. I also started. With. Other with. His. Thoughts. On this. I'm GONNA seven to bring it back to the conversation. We had with Chris Evans yesterday and you had the argument that there's a double standard when it comes to men and women why can men just you know throw out jake pick and not be embarrassed and be ridiculed and when women do it it's crazy I'm like well, double standards happened a lot and it happens on both sides per instance if Seth Meyers would have said that about female neighbor honey. Torch we'RE GONNA, burn him, cancel him, cancel him cancel him. You're so right when people are complaining about a double standard, make sure that you are aware that it happens both ways and acknowledge it because Wendy Williams is going to get away with this and understand what she's saying because sometimes I'm not I think my neighbor likes it when I look I think he puts on his show for. And I often look at him at the grocery store and I'm like, I'm the do from across the hall like Miranda Hobbes got, but it still doesn't make it right but I think if she would have if Seth Meyers would've said it We wouldn't be having this conversation. got fired one, hundred six. That's my exact reaction when I read it this morning or watch or whatever I was like if this and I, it's funny it's in the character of Wendy Williams nobody even thought twice about it. If a man says, I'm going to defend my men right now if a man said this job taken away divorce potential, admit his life just would have it. He said I spy on my woman neighbor forget it life over and gone done done in two. Totally, agree, are you guys still ahead? Jennifer innocent on what makes her feel amazing plus the new dangers of social media what we're about to tell you could make you want to throw your phone away that's not what.

He's covered all we can catch our daily prop live emmy special Saturday morning as well as our ease inside guide on Friday night. Then on Sunday the EMMYS AIR ON ABC's red carpet coverage kicks off at four thirty PM Eastern. Goes all night long. All right. Let's get to the scary new Netflix documentary called the social dilemma. It's making a lot of people seriously thinking about deleting their social media accounts check this out. What I want people to know is that everything they're doing online is being watched is being tracked. Every single action you take is carefully monitored and recorded. This dilemma goes in depth on how social media watches and influences our every move online, and it's even more intense than you realize facebook discovered that they were able to affect real world behavior emotions without ever triggering the users awareness. They are completely clueless according to the film everything from how long we look at content to how we feel emotionally is being tracked and adjusted convince us to keep scrolling. Teams of engineers whose job is to use your psychology against you. It also the dangers to our mental health addiction and negative self image that are impacting younger and younger users. A whole generation is more anxious more depressed. You get rewarded by parts likes thumbs up and reconfirmed that with value and we completed with. Featuring former executives and engineers from companies like facebook, Google and instagram. The social dilemma is inside look at how our favorite apps are using us as much as we use them. I always felt like fundamentally, it was the force for good. I don't know if I heal the way. Oh man would you guys consider quitting? Are least slowing down your social media? It's unless the first of all did you guys watch the whole thing? Have you? Seen it yet. I know you've seen it. Okay I. saw it. First of all, we were going to watch it at night and it was show triggering to me that I was like I can't go to sleep on this. I have to literally watch it in the day because I know that this is going to show some real stuff that I kind of already know but like it's really going to put it out there for me and after watching it I mean just what this person says the emotional effects that are caused by social. Media and the negative self image that comes out of being an active user on it a show real. It's like even somebody who like I'm pretty strong person I consider myself one like yesterday I had kind of icky feeling the time wasted on social media just constantly sort of like being on this wheel I'm now at a point where I'm like, maybe I do need to especially my daughter comes Beta do need to just get off instagram for a little bit and take a break. It really has affected me negatively in a lot of ways. It's you. It's crazy that I figured out in the last year that. People feel truly educated and they feel informed and they feel empowered and they get their information from. Social Media. and. It's tailored to fit your belief. Reconfirms whatever you have going on in your head, the news that comes to you on social media is just to reinforce that it doesn't give you a chance to open your mind to something else one hundred percent and we're sitting here and you are going to argue with me about something and you're gonNa site face work. Me Coming to you talking about my Diet and saying Oh yeah I saw it on the back of cheerios yeah. I just don't understand how people haven't realized and figure it out that you can't figure out what an election means or what a candidate is about from one hundred and twenty second out on twitter. Yeah. That's not only take. The whole. The reason why these these social media platforms even exist is to completely manipulate you. I. Told my phone pregnant every single picture on my church APP is all pregnant women all of a sudden you know what I mean like. I told you that remember before were like your feet is different than mine because I was telling you. Oh, there's so much stuff about postpartum.

Ep 237 | Toxic Mommy Culture

"Hey guys to relatable happy Monday. I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend celebrating with your families. Whatever nontraditional ways that you got to celebrate this weekend today we are talking about toxic. Mommy culture this is a topic that a lot of you have been asking me to address more thoroughly. We've talked about it on the PODCASTS. Before but I'm GonNa tell you what it is why it's bad and why we as Christian women should avoid it now. If you're listening on Monday you know that this podcast episode is out a little bit later than usual. There were some technical difficulties so I apologize for that. I actually had to record it a second time because the audio was out on the first one so anyway. Sorry for the delay there but I'm so excited to get into this subject. That a ton of you have been requesting that we dive into more deeply before we actually get into toxic. Mommy Coulter I do want to tell you guys about Laurel Springs.

Ali for your waived registration fee again. That is laurel springs dot com slash alley. Okay let's get into toxic mommy culture what is toxic. Mommy culture. This is a term that I made up or at least a pink. I made it up. I'm sure other people somewhere have said this phrase before but I think that I came up with at toxic mommy culture. It is what I use to describe. The Trinity Malice expressed by parents about their kids on twitter. I let me tell you what I am talking about and what I'm not talking about just so we can be clear. Let me start with what I'm not talking about when I say toxic mommy culture so what is not toxic. Mommy culture as saying motherhood is hard. That's not toxic. Mommy culture or asking for help or advice voicing your worries or your fears or your stressors when it comes to motherhood talking about me being a break or a time of refreshment or rest to be honest about the real challenges of raising children toxic laughing about something your children said or did joking about not having it all together even poop explosions or all the non-glamorous parts of motherhood these are not part of what I consider. Talk Sake Mommy culture. Of course every situation and everything that said online is different and requires us to look at Tony Context and like that but just up front. I'm not talking about. I'm not talking about vulnerability and transparency and light hearted humor when it comes to talking about Motherhood Online. I think that these can all be done on social media in a way. That's light hearted. It's fun that's funny and edifying when I talk about toxic Mommy Culture. I am not indicting like I said vulnerability and transparency I am condemning meanness malice disrespect and what even may very well be considered bullying and emotional abuse. This word toxic is used a lot nowadays in this whole what I call the Trinity Narcissism Culture the Culture of self love to say okay if you have a toxic relationship you need to cut it out what I mean by toxic is that it is infecting. You is bringing you down. It is making you your thoughts your life your relationships worse. It is tearing things down rather than building things out. So that's what I mean by toxic so toxic mommy culture includes but not limited to and this is just my own personal definition. Other people might have different definitions. But it's my personal definition in light of what the Bible says about motherhood and raising children and things like that so talk sake. Non Edifying non building up non encouraging mommy culture is including but not limited to calling your kids names online. A whole seems to be a prevalent. One that people just hilarious nowadays but also calling your kids brats jerks things like that talking about how your kids are driving you to alcoholism pointing out that you hate. Spend time with your kids or they're holding you back from doing all the things that you WANNA do. You hate having them in the house and you just can't wait for them to go away. All of this by the way also applies to how a lot of women talked about their spouses online and it is almost always wives complaining about these things. Wife's complaining about their husbands MOMS complaining about their kids don't always but often are simple and incessant need to. Nag As women seems to be spilling over onto social media. And let me tell you it ain't pretty and that is why I am talking about toxic. Mommy culture there are social media accounts that are dedicated to this kind of stuff. Not all the posts on these accounts like scary. Mommy for example are bad but there is a theme to most of them. And it's this that I am a victim of motherhood I am strung out. I am stressed out. I am put out. I deserve better. I'm entitled to recognition and vacation and I'm not a getting these things so I'm bitter. That's the theme of most of these posts these degrading posts about kid and toxic. Post about motherhood all of this is presented usually under the guise of humor and as I have learned in my experience if you call this out if you point out even from a Christian perspective that Christian perspective that this kind of attitude is unhelpful hurtful and a biblical you will be that with a cacophony of a defense as you will hear things like lineup. It's just a joke. Moms just need a place where they can vent voice their frustrations or why don't you give these moms some grace rather than telling them their reactions are wrong. Stop being so judgmental or my personal favorite. Just wait just wait till you have teenagers. Just wait till you have more kids. Just wait till you are matt with Xyz Challenge. Just wait then you will understand that you will start talking like this about your kits and instead of just discounting these defenses of toxic mommy cultures that have just writing them off. I'm going to address them one by one because some of this pushback is legitimate. Or it's at least understandable and it's worth answering and I will use my responses to these justifications toxic mommy culture to make my argument against first defense of toxic multi culture is. It's just a joke okay. I love jokes like I can take a joke. I have not easily offended by jokes. Even if jokes are targeted towards me or demographic or a group that I represent I have a very deep appreciation for jokes jabs for sarcasm and even some good hearted cynicism when the time is right but but not at the expense of those who can't defend themselves. That's not humor that's bullying and there is nothing that I hate more than bullying. Think about this the only reason you as a parent and I'm talking universal you because I'm sure most of you listening to this podcast. Don't engage in toxic mommy culture online of the reason that you who this might apply to as a parent feel so bold embracing calling your kids brats online or saying that you are dreading spending time with them during quarantine is because they can't read and if they can read a you don't care if they see it or not because you have power and authority over them or like in the case of women complaining about their husbands online. You just don't care what they think. You would never say these things that you say about your kids or your spouse about your neighbor publicly or your friend publicly or your boss publicly or people whose opinions that you care about news feelings. You don't want to hurt because they might be able to retaliate. In some way. In most cases kids are helpless by calling them names online or seeing how much you dislike them. You are exploiting their helplessness and dependence on you now you might say Ali eight feet come up. They're just funny means they're nothing more than that. We just laugh and we scroll on but again humor is humor funny are funny means but bullying. Is it funny? What other class of helpless people is it acceptable to publicly call names and talk badly about people special needs the elderly the poor if there were accounts dedicated to how burdensome special needs people are? We'd probably think it was in bad taste right. We'd actually probably think it's immoral and we might even take steps to get that account taken down and yet it's become trendy funny to demean other vulnerable another vulnerable group of people children to get a laugh. Think about it if there were hundreds of accounts dedicated to how terrible wives and women are like how dumb and annoying and dramatic and Bratty. Needy women are how exhausting we are. How men can't wait till we're gone or to get out of the house so we're not bothering them and they're probably our social media accounts like this but like what would we say to these. We would laugh. Maybe but we also probably agree. That it's sexist that it's rude that it's not helpful to society at all that it's not edifying right. We probably wouldn't say oh. Well it's fine. It gets fine if lots of men voicing these opinions publicly and become influencers based on their sexism. We'd probably see these people. These guys at star accounts like this as scumbags. We'd probably wonder if they were really decent people. We probably would say well. Maybe the problem is with you as a husband and not with your wife if you're constantly complaining or she's constantly nagging. You probably start having those thoughts. We'd probably wonder if this kind of pervasive attitude contributed contributes to since diabetes general view of women. And we will be right to wonder all of these things if these accounts exist or did exist so no. I don't think all of the memes about kids being chicken nugget. Eating brats are as innocuous as you think they are and from a biblical perspective. If Fijian's four twenty nine says let no corrupting talk. Come out of your mouth is the only such as as good for building up as fifty. -cation that it may give grace to those who here now. This is a verse that I personally can certainly put into practice better and more regularly not in relation to this topic specifically but in general certainly online conversations about politics and disagreements and things like that but it absolutely also applies to the things that we say about our families especially publicly privately to but especially publicly. The things we say should be good for building up as that process. Push back number two when I say toxic. Mommy culture is bad. We shouldn't engage with it. Pushback that I hear is moms need a place where they can vent their frustrations well. Yes now as women I think we need to be a lot more thoughtful about what we decided to quote. Then what I know. This in a lot of ice in many different kinds of situations is that we use this. Sorry I just need to vent as an excuse for saying things that we know. We shouldn't say things that we know aren't glorify into the war things we know don't qualify as what's good for building others up things that would be really hurtful if the person that we're talking about heard them including our kids. I'm kind of like when we excuse gossip by saying Oh. I'm just I'm just worried about her own. I would say this to her face so it's not gossip. We're all guilty of that. But we know the truth that we're still gossipy or is like when we say something route to someone followed by no offense or just bless her heart then team does not give us an excuse to send. It's not justification for slander or bullying or tearing down or hateful knit and again. I have absolutely been guilty of this. In the past in other areas but vintage does not provide a justification for unfit for hateful or for mean works. Jesus condemning the Pharisees said. This is Matthew. Twelve thirty four through thirty seven for out of the abundance of the heart. The mouth speaks the good person out of his good treasure brings forth good and the evil person out of his evil. Treasure brings forth evil. I tell you on the Day of Judgment. People give account for every careless where they speak for by your words. You will be justified and by your words will be condemned. Jesus leader says in Mathew Fifteen and he called the people to him and said to them here in understand it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles person but what comes out of his mouth this defiles a person what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart and this defiles a person for out of the heart come evil thoughts murder adultery. Sexual immorality theft. False witness slander. These are what to file a person so out of the heart just says the mouth speaks so we should all ask ourselves. Why are we say the things that we're saying they don't mean nothing? These words don't mean nothing. They mean something bad mouthing arcades online because we hate them because we don't like them if so that's a heart problem. That's a you problem. Not a Kid. Probably you problem fundamentally and ultimately are we doing because we want attention and affirmation this. I think is typically the main reason why people engage in toxic? Mommy culture if so. That's a heart problem. Are we doing it because we feel envy towards single people people without kids people who seem to have it easier or maybe because we covet other people's kids their husbands or their financial situations if so that's a hard problem the mean-spirited tearing down of kids? Even the name of humor is not an indication of your circumstances but of your heart so it's not an indication of how bad your kids are. How lease your helpful. Your has been is how difficult quarantine is. It's an indication of something that is going on in your heart. It's an indication of send your resentment toward your kids. It's a heart issue. Your bitterness toward your husband is a heart issue your desire for attention or affirmation from strangers on the Internet or friends in your phone. This is a heart issue. Now this does not mean that your kids are behaving badly or that your husband is it lazy they might be these things and these things might not be your fault. You might actually have it really hard. I'm not discounting that. But your public vintage sessions where you're calling your kids and your spouse's names is an effort to tear them down to build yourself up and that is pride that his sin and not only that. But I'm telling you it's not going to help because you have deeper heart level needs that may be numbed by your social media bashing but will not be healed. The only person that can help you repent of your resentment and bitterness and selfish need for attention is the God who made you and this God sees you. He hears you. He knows how hard you have it however hard you have it he knows what challenges and obstacles you face. I Peter. Five seven tells us to cast all our anxieties all our cares on the ward. Because he cares for us. The reason why you bring your requests in your concerns to God in gratitude and humility not in bitterness or anger or entitlement is because yes he cares for you but he can also do something about these things he can also help you. He can supply you with the strength and the joy and the wisdom. You need memes cannot do that a like on social media will not do that those people that are a part of that mom group that you're on that you're using to vent cannot do that the friend egging you on overtax message and you're venting session cannot do that now. Again seeking wisdom from our friends very good asking for encouragement from friends or even that. Mom's group that you're part of on facebook good being transparent and vulnerable the difficulty of motherhood absolutely but using venting as an excuse for Gossiping. Am Bad mouthing your family. It's unhelpful and it's unfit both for you. And those who see inherent next defence a year of toxic mommy culture give these MOMS vintage about their kid in mean ways some grace instead of pointing out the flaws and toxic mommy culture. Don't be so judgmental. Well you are right in that a lot of the MOMS. Engaging in this kind of online rhetoric may be released struggling and they're looking for people to relate to they're looking for some reprieve maybe some encouragement and maybe their kids like I acknowledged really are wild. Maybe their husband really is inattentive and unhelpful. In annoying so maybe this mom really is completely overwhelmed by motherhood all of this can be true at the same time as it is true that Selma speeches edifying and some speech is objectively degrading and at the effects of the things that we say about kids manners that some of these things are her are hurtful there on helpful and they contribute to the larger culture of hatred toward or at least at the tour children. That is so rampant. Today I think the vast majority of MOMS who engage in this kind of toxic online behavior love their kits and are probably nothing like their online persona in real life. But again the question is why are you doing it? What good is it doing and do you find yourself taking on this online persona of entitlement and bitterness and is that helping your family or is it hurting. Do you find yourself looking for opportunities to create a situation in which your child acts like a Brat so you can chronicle it for last liter if so again who is that helping and I would challenge you to ask the Lord to examine what is in your heart as we should all be doing in all things. Ask Him to examine what is in your heart. That is making. You feel the need to do this kind of thing. And they're absolutely is forgiveness in Greece and understanding and love for you that only your Creator can give but there will also be a call to repentance because remember out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and then finally what I probably hear most often when I bring up toxic mommy culture and just how damaging it is is just wait. That's what I hear. Just wait. Just wait till you have work. It's just wait until you have toddlers. Wait till you have preteens. Wait till you have teenagers. Vineyard moms talk like this and you'll probably do it too and you are right in that. I have no idea what you're going through. I have one baby and I'm not GONNA lie. She is pretty incredible. I have no idea what it's like to have twins or triplets or toddlers. Have teenagers or two three four five kids? I don't know I don't know what it's like to have kids with special needs. I don't know what it's like to have a husband who doesn't help. I don't know what it's like to be a single mom. I don't know what it's like to be a mom who worked eighty hours of the week. Outside of the home I can go on and on about the kinds of moths. That had it harder than I do. I could talk forever about all of the things that I've yet to experience as a mom that have yet to learn about motherhood. There are many of you listening who know exponentially more than I do about being a mom so I don't come with this objective. Toxic Mommy culture as an expert on motherhood. I'm not I come at this from a from a perspective of a Christian who knows what the Bible says about children as an observer of culture and as a commentator on the lies being fed to women by our culture dislike in other lies that you are a victim of motherhood. I also come at this as someone who is fortunate enough to be around. Mom's of three kids four kids five kids kids with special needs and they all have different parenting styles. They've all gone through tough times and I'm sure they would tell you that they have gone through their hard moment and and mistakes that they've made but all of the MOMS I know do their jobs with gratitude enjoy and so I know what a righteous attitude looks like in MOMS. Who have it much harder than I do? And who might? Who might also have it harder than you do. It is a judgment of the kind of negative culture behavior surrounding motherhood that I am that I am engaging and yes I am. Judging that kind of behavior as wrong as harmful a bitterness is fanned into flames and creates more contentment more envy more unhappiness in this kind of online conversation and culture and also has an effect on our culture at large a culture which already places a low value on children it exacerbates this feeling. That children are a burden and that they can be discarded at any point in pregnancy. As long as it's convenient and this trance this traditions me into my office points. So those were my defensive point against what our attempts at justifying talk mommy culture and here my offense of points about why toxic mommy culture is bad and wrong and probably a little bit offensive to to some people number one. Yes as I was just saving. I do believe that toxic mommy culture contributes to abortion culture. How could it not? How can it not contribute to that mentality? When teachers when teenagers sorry and young women seem moms constantly complaining about having kids. Do you think that parenting sounds appealing to them or do you think that terrifies them? It's the ladder. There's no doubt about that. I also believe that it probably encourages apathy antipathy and even forms of abuse towards children if moms feel like they are validated and their deep seated resentment and even sometimes hate of their kids. Why would they tried to hide these things number two? It is disrespectful to engage in this kind of behavior. Not just here kids not just to your family but also to those who want kids and haven't been able to have them there are millions of men and women. It's always important for us to be reminded of this. There are millions of men and women who would give anything to be doing the late night. Wake up the dozen diaper changes the temper tantrums. That help you with homework. But it hasn't happened for them yet. They have emptied their bank accounts. They have spent hours on their knees praying. They have waited years on adoption. List all to get a chance at having the same experiences that you right now are complaining about now. That does not mean that. You don't have the right that we don't have the right to acknowledge hardship and parenting. Whether you have one kid or you have seven kids. We can say when things are difficult we can be tired can be stressed. We can feel like we don't know what we're doing. We can confide in a friend we can ask for help. We can pray to God for strength. Of course none of these things me that we're not thankful for our kids just when we're being honest but remember to be thankful for your kids and don't let vulnerability which is good. Turn into grumbling which is bad and it's in Philippians. Two fourteen or fifteen says do all things without grumbling or disputing that. You may be blameless and innocent children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation among whom you shine as lights in the world holding fast to the word of life to the word of life so that in the day of Christ. I may be proud that I did not run in vain or Labor in vain. Our lack of grumbling and complaining is a characteristic of being children of God and helps us shine as lights in the midst of business which leads to my third point. Which is the most important point number? Three viewing children as brats and burdens is undeniable. Call this is the third and most important reason why toxic mommy culture is wrong. We shouldn't have a part of it if we see a secular society. Sound a certain way or say certain. Things are first reaction. Should never be to mimic it as Christians if society tells us that kids are Bratton burdens instead of a green. Instead of noddy Ed's in joking along with them we should ask ourselves. Hang on the world is saying this is what God says is what God says about kids. Is this what God says about parenting? Because as Christians. We don't care what other moms say that motherhood is we don't care what medium say that motherhood is. We don't care what celebrities say that motherhood is the question is what does God say. The motherhood is the one who created at the one who tells us what to think and how to act and the Bible says that kids are not brats. They're not burden but they are blessings. That doesn't mean that they don't sometimes act bratty. Does it mean that. Sometimes they don't have bad behavior in the motherhood isn't hard but that children innately are blessings to us. Saw One twenty seven three three five says behold children are a heritage from the Lord the fruit of the womb a reward like Eros in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver within Jesus also use the innocence the trusting nature the eagerness of children as a representation of what our faith should look like Mark Tenth Thirteenth or Fifteenth says. And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them and the disciples rebuked them but when Jesus saw it he was indignant and said to them. Let the children come to me. Do not hinder them for to such belongs to the Kingdom of God. Truly I say to you. Whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it? Jesus made these children. He loves them. He sees them as precious throughout the Bible. We see that God is the giver of children that he creates US fearfully and wonderfully in our mothers womb that life starts at conception and it is it is precious from then onward. And let me tell you from a first time relatively inexperienced. Mom Motherhood is a blessing emmy of you who have been negatively affected by people who say kids hold you back or inhibit you or stop you from fulfilling your dreams or they take too much of you. Don't listen to that. You will experience and parenthood a love that you have never felt in your life and I know that it is a tough road ahead for me for anyone apparent. I was a strong willed child. I wasn't even stronger will teenager. My parents had a rough go of it. I understand the road to parenting is never easy. And that there are times to weep over it to struggle with it to ask for help with it to not know what to do with it. But there's never a time to bully our children behind their backs on line four alike or a laugh and again I want to reiterate because I know I'm going to get at least one comment on this on youtube or something. Someone is still going to discount all of the caveats that I've put an essence say that. I'm being judgmental that I'm trying to say that women should just be faked and pretend the parents eighteen is perfect and easy and I'm not. I am not advocating for being faker pretending that things are going perfectly. Confess your struggles in your sins to the Lord trusted friend ask for help and for wisdom while keep in mind something important and true. You're not a victim of motherhood. You are inefficiential of it. Words matter attitudes matter that scary. Mommy Instagram instagram page. Might be funny but is it helpful. Is it really helping you or is it making you more bitter? Is it helping to say or is it? Adding to the negative noise toxic. Mommy culture is a subsidiary of what I call the culture of self affirmation or trendy narcissism as. We've talked about many times on this podcast and these two subjects like I said are interlaced interlocked and this is something that I wrote a book about not enough in. That's okay escaping. The toxic culture of self love comes out August. Eleven you can go ahead and pre-order that on it was on if you would like trendy narcissism is this mythical idea that if you love yourself war you'll be happy that if you put yourself first you'll be satisfied that if you care for yourself better you will find purpose and piece that you're really the center of your universe in everyone else in your orbit. It encourages this sense of entitlement entitled. Lit to your wants and your space in your dreams but the truth is the act of the matter from a biblical perspective. We'RE NOT ENTITLED TO BE SINKS. Yes we need rest. God made us this way and dictates our rats and commands that we find refuge in him and yes. There are things that we liked to do things that make us happy that we should do. Engage him whenever we can but our children are not getting in the way of the things that we are entitled to and viewing them will make us bad parents miserable people because it will make us. Bitter Pride is always the author of bitterness a toxic. Mummy Culture is based on pride on what you deserve affirmation and attention that you think that you were entitled to I saw opposed on a MOMS group. Facebook of a mom calling her eight month old and a whole because he wouldn't stop screaming and crying. She called herself a terrible mom and said sorry. I just needed to vent and all the comments assured her no not a bad mom. You are doing your best. You're doing a great job and I'm just afraid looking at this conversation that I did not even engage in at all. I'm afraid in many cases that this is the reason way MOMS use such harsh language against their kids and even themselves because they want to be puffed up they need their ego to be stroked but ultimately. This doesn't help anyone. The truth is the hard truth is we. Don't know if this person is a good mom like we don't need to put up with empty potus. We need to remind her of the truth of the truth. That is understandable to be going through a hard time right now but that God can give her the strength to do her job which is to steward her blessing of having a child's toxic mommy culture just like the larger of self affirmation trendy narcissism all seek to elevate the self and it should tell us something that its participants are always complaining. They're always bleed and they're never fully finally happy. Remember none of the answers that you are searching for our found inside yourself because the self can't be both the problem and the solution. That's why you see these. That are obsessed with the cell for often very up and down their emotions. They're always looking for the next thing or the next step program or relationship our book that will make them feel better and it helps for a little bit and then it fades the burdens and the worries and concerns of toxic mommy culture and Trinity Narcissism or heavy. But the good news is that Jesus is burned are light. His yoke is easy. He calls us to self denial to self forgetfulness. Not to self obsession and self-denial might sound scary but it actually frees us from the discontentment. A constant striving for attention affirmation. That comes with self worship a win. Jesus is the center of our lives when we pleasing him and glorifying him our number one priority. When he is our purpose that our kids are no longer inhibited. Inhibitors of fulfilling that purpose. But part of fulfilling that purpose parenting them in love. Edification is a way that we glorify. God which is what we are all. Its believers called to do first and foremost okay. That concludes this episode. I hope you guys enjoyed it. If you love relatable please leave me a five star review on Apple podcasts.

His Dark Materials - S01E04 - Armour

"Welcome to move television the officially unofficial place for all of television. I'm your host Sally and I'm here Co host Alexis Texas and we are today covering his dark materials. Episode four called are more armor armor spell the British British way. More all right. What did you think of this episode? I liked it. It's it's been my favorite episode so far I'm biased Animals there are a lot of animals. aminals animals similar cinnamon animals in this episode. Sorry lost my mind the second and also lin-manuel Miranda Great. I see your opinions already. Yeah I I liked it. Would you think I liked it. We are officially actually heading north I think lin-manuel certainly. I'm having a lot of fun with what he's doing. The bears are amazing absolutely and full of so much feeling. Yeah I guess I'm trying to think about the differences between a Yorick Ann's Simba from Lanqing student a lot of stuff with his. It doesn't really have eyebrows. But he's doing more with his eyes. I think those characters said yeah and I had to look our. I had to go to my local encyclopedia of knowledge which is my husband and say are bears are polar bears really that big and I think it's actually very life-sized to what an actual berries. And he's tried can't he's enormous. He is like eclipsing the doorway of that church toward the end of the episode. It was amazing. Thank but I still want to nuzzle his muzzle. Yes I want to wipe it down with a cleaning wipe or something and then I wanNA know my bottle. I- buggers Adams is and like give them a brushing and I still want to cuddle with them so absolutely. He's doing a lot he's doing the most for me not want to go ahead and talk about the episode. Yeah let's do it housekeeping's our annual holiday type Shenanigans start next week beyond look for little trailer. We've cooked tough pickle me. This is our rick and Morty podcast season for this episode Rick Hates Heist movie so much. He spends an entire thirty minutes. Averting the whole genre find out what Jim and I had to say on pickle me this over on bald movies in case you missed it. We saw a beautiful data neighborhood last week. The quasi mister rogers bio pic. That has US wondering if you could found a secular religion around the life of Fred. Rogers the answer is almost certainly and that he would hate it. Pretty good argument against doing it. I guess if you've enjoyed my occasional political tangents here on bald move mover. Maybe especially if you haven't you might try listening to my new podcast on the Swiss bold network three right turns. This week's episode is entitled Star Trek Republican than I mean. That title title doesn't Intrigue You. I don't know I I also make jet noises with my mouth so check that out. If any of these sound good you can find out more information on volume dot com subscribe or search search for the show name. Wherever you listen to podcasts? All right we so been with lease score his be and and his demon Hester in the air balloon chasing elite on York and from that vantage point in the sky. They see the options arriving at Charleston at the same time the most lin-manuel opening for anything ever or a loved it he got his Solo Solo there in the beginning. So then we get down to the ground and see Lee scores. Be Meeting the harbormaster. harbormaster was what I wrote here in the notes. But you're telling me Cecil men is a title and not his actual name yet. Yeah so assistant is A. It's like a governor okay But this town's really small so saying that you're the governor of a tiny town is like saying I'm King Shit of dookie Milton gotcha check. It seemed to be you know. I couldn't quite put put a pin on it. Maybe this is one of those Britishisms But he had a office right there on the boat route to dock area and also the majesty cerium reported to him but importantly he's played by gutters Deadly during from Harry Pas. Oh Yeah I was wondering why recognized him at first I thought it was just because he looks a little bit like jared from Silicon Valley. Oh Yeah you're right in the eyes in the nose zone yeah he's thinned out quite a bit Since he's moved out with his parents and he looks gaunt. Hardly recognizable maybe the death eaters death eaters. No the Oh my God. I'm bad Harry Potter Fan. Is it not death eaters. The death eaters are Baltimore's followers. Talking about what. You're trying to say the the the guys you scare away with charm enters the mentors Dementieva's the mentors got to him. So whatever he wasn't that great to begin with but we also see that lease scores be is kind of skilled pickpocket here steals as watch. It's handsome rascal. Then we see Lord Faa and Farther Corum Discussing Taking Lyra to the witch's council and his her previous relationship with Sarafina Piccola a pancake. A new form Arctic Fox. Yeah excited they're always white his forms. I noticed all except for one. Yeah to the cat. And they're just like a loaf. He's a he's a Fox loaf. He's kind of Aaron. was watching in this with me. And he's like I said just a fat dog walking beside her like no. He's a Fox. He's Poofy poofy he's supposed to stay warm in the cold old exactly. So far Corum asks Larry to show him exactly how she's reading the elite the Ometer as they walk through these very highly visible streets. It's high yeah she's just fucking whips it out in the middle of everything like what are you doing out. And everyone's watching are harder corum notices people watching and told you to put it away the arrive at the witch's council and meet with Dr Land Celsius uh-huh Feeling I've seen this guy before and something else does familiar So they are asking him to get a message to Sarafina Petula Fella and he reveals that stealing children is none of the which is business. They know it's happening. But they have an agreement with the Majesty Korea to keep their keep their nose out of it yet. I think they're just trying to stay neutral We also see in the end that he you too has a snake demon which is another another second one. We've seen so far and tells them that He. He is aware that they are performing the mace that process or in intercession as they call it. Never this how can one word Paxton Lynch like menace and sharpness crazy. Yeah Intercession is. Is this a word that was invented for the Golden Compass. It can't be right now. has to be something else. I don't know I thought it was but it's it's certainly you certainly know what it means. They also call them. Oh Yeah. This was Indecision was created for his dark materials. Interesting so don't look that up. If you were curious media google that term. I guess it kind of makes sense. I mean excision the to cut something off so it is intersection. It's yourself off Mildly interesting mild mildly mildly So the other thing I wanted to mention here and this is book knowledge. But I don't think think it's spoiling anything but the witches are all female right so they have a man specifically male on the ground around to handle sort of their council affairs right. Is there a representative right. Joe Thought was interesting. Did they always. He's trues men to be the representatives on the ground because they can't have a you know lose any witches in the field. Maybe maybe they think people will look more kindly upon a man that a woman possibly certainly true. We need men to deal with men's business before they leave Dr Land Salience asks for Lyra to demonstrate using and reading the elite the ometer and and she does so defined Sarafina Pecadillos Pine Spray when he asks sorry When he asks her to do that? Far McCormick gives him a very significant look which we know from the book. Is this part of something else Maybe I'll mention that later on the spoiler section Louis Oh of course. She finds it with the elite the honor because we know that she can read this effectively right and he gives her a little piece of Serafina Piccola spray to use any time to summon her yeah. We're getting set up for future feature hell Serafina moment. Yeah said of Hail Mary you see what I did it does. Thank you just do three three northern pines and five Pineau Send Hill Serafina. Like counting a rosary. Gotcha okay I bet it smells amazing down there in that cellar. Absolutely I. Yeah I would love to have a roomful. I'm so excited for Christmas. I'm just excited for Christmas. Messing getting a tree in my house so it can smell like that to cheat. Like being those. The sense sticks fakery I like doing that so she demonstrates her power effectively and before he leaves he tips them off onto where they can find. An armored bear for higher tire possibly done. I don't have to wait long. Because then they find your barons and not the metalworks. Oh Yeah I wanted to say his his. It's very pronounced pronunciation pronunciation. Jesus Christ of York Bournissen like all right. This is the definitive we know how to say. Hey dudes name now uric Bernsen. Well I'm still gonNA say your Barrington. Because I like that better. It's got the air. Yeah so you're says he's seen the child cutters he doesn't like it and he's a he's a bear who principle but He can't do anything because he doesn't have his his armor and I love. He's just he's ginormous. We already talked about. Cutie is but he gets interface and I don't know how she resisted as a twelve year old a girl the urge to reach and just pet his soft face. I was putting my TV. The teeth probably the teeth. I guess I'll whiskey and I was thinking about it breath because he's his where he is. There's like blood in the mud puddles and stuff yeah young Blood Puddles rotten meat breath so he refused the call to adventure In the next scene we see Mrs Coulter. Arriving at the Majesty Room another fabulous outfit She meets with as someone who I didn't catch his name but who cares. We don't see him again for the rest of the episode. Yeah and there's a lot of magic area members that sure like to look at her she passes passes and he says well. You do have a reputation for stirring up trouble and Her monkey reaches for her hand at this point maybe to comfort bird her and she refuses. That slaps it away. Leather monkey slap no comfort allowed. Nope no hint that. She is having any kind of emotions emotions. Nothing none of that so we go to room where father mcphail is attempting to scold her. Interactions the cardinal arrives and offers. Her susteren ensues Cardin CAL sturrock. But he's cardinal cartel in my heart. I can't that posture and the way he is looking through his eyebrows. It's the worst orange I I don't understand what he's doing because it's definitely not a spinal issue actor definitely doesn't have some kind of deformity in his spine and I don't know what he's doing. I don't know it's light. Maybe supposed to be some kind of weird social engineering thing. But he's like he's like the sprints from Robin Hood they animated movie you remember. That's just what he reminds me of so the punishment they intend for her is to give the general. Oh Ablation Board to father macphail. Who looks just as surprised as she is but then again I would too if I knew that that was happening? I want to be on her bad side. Even if she stripped power they WANNA Sherpa revolver official duties as well then she gives them a slow collaborate to his face and Dan says she has Azriel in bear prison and she's going to go back north and she's going to get one elite geometry question and she does just make her the colonel already. It seems like it'd be a lot easier a lot more straightforward. And they're. They're not happy about it. They're letting it happen because they're not happy about it. Yeah Yeah no repercussions in the gym. We don't know so back at the boat Oh Lyra asks about Fodder quorums relationship with Serafina Petula. I love these I last name things. At least it's not three names like Benjamin to Reuter that's done with all righty farther Corum reveals that. They had outta child together a long time ago when he was younger. Man and that child died and Serafina Piccola would not accept that so he she left him alone to mourn and she wanted to fight the world and would go all the way to Yom Bay to fight for her son on Seoul back. What is that Yarmulke is the god of the death of which is is this the civically this is golden compass exclusive thing or is this an old lower that I'm not familiar with it? Is that in the Golden Compass and it's also based on real thing In Our world she is a Finnish goddess of death and she has charge of the underworld world fucking love it. I want to be a witch so bad WANNA fly with my pines sprigs and smoke Christmas. All the time and have have death goddesses. It was interesting to me. They decided to take away the visual of which on brooms for this. Because as far as I I know those branches are meant to be Kinda like brooms like they serve the same function as your traditional witches broom. But here they're just a little piece of pine. Yeah we saw in the preview for the next episode. If anybody else watch that that they're just flying they're flying around Yeah I guess I have some questions about the pine spray do is it's just a different tree filed pine specifically. Oh really yeah okay okay so there are just all so can which is pull of spray from the same tree just a different branch or I think so. Yeah and then just make it. There's Somehow magic you know Magic there's not that many sprays to give out so must be something really special will for get one to use whenever she wants near a needle off of one So then let me see Lee scores be arrives at the bar and this is just a really bizarre. I'm not going to sugarcoat. wrote this one. This he goes in loudly picks a fight with all in everyone and also asks about Yorick and just has a whole is just a whole scene of him chewing the scenery. He's giving a stage performance for television and ends. It's just all an elaborate way to get his ass kicked in pickpocket a few of the locals. I see you have a different opinion. I would agree with that. I agree that he is. He's doing stage acting more so than the slightly more subtle. Understated acting for film I still thought it was really fun to watch I have some insight into his character. I know that he is just kind of an Abrasive ding-dong basically and this is just his style he. He lacks subtlety that character. So it makes sense. Yeah and I also really enjoyed. I like the relationship that he has with Hester. It seems to be pretty close especially among adults like. We haven't seen a lot of adults speaking a lot to their demons right here. It's a constant dialogue. And it's great. I love it. Yeah Yeah I like like that. He wipes the bar down before he put his head on it. Like yes absolutely you. Don't somebody's healed whiskey on your head. No of course not I mean he looks amazing seizing on my God. I love that outfit so much. He's got so much style and all of his scenes with Lyra are so cute. They're so good they're really good on each each other especially like later. We'll see the face. He makes it her. When you're growls? I love that But I just hate Linneman Wellesley scores. B I do. I don't like it at all. He does seem like he might be a little too young for the role. Just maybe you know young. But also he's got this slag Texas accent that comes and goes and He's just I don't know I feel like how many musical scenes arena get Saliman Linneman. Well I I don't WANNA rail against it too much I mean that's that's all well and good but it's just it's just different. It's just it's very different. It's very different if you come into this expecting your Sam. What's his face I'm Elliot Sam? Rockwell Elliott Wise Ganji no if you come into this expecting Sam Elliott Just don't do that to yourself. The the declined. Yeah expect lin-manuel Maranda being a little bit of a Camp Hammy scam scam and and that is what you'll get all right. So then we see Mrs Coulter at The Majesty Reim- Asking Paul Pavel. Why did I go so extra without that asking? Her one question of Billy Theater and that question is who is Lyra block and he says surely you of all all people and she's like just asked that question you know what I mean so I assume this is her learning about this prophecy that we already know about exactly that was this was me realizing. Oh maybe she doesn't she doesn't know about yet and if she doesn't maybe the doesn't either Murray. Maybe just she wants an update on the prophecy. Something Yeah I don't know maybe. It was making some assumptions in the earlier episodes that I shouldn't have been happens to the best of us. Lease scores be meets Lyra in like he's just going around yelling about where the bear is making his attentions entirely known which I thought would be a problem at some point but really isn't I'm just thinking of other questions like how did he not come here for your Iq. Wouldn't you just of immediately go to the metalworks if that's what his thing is NOPE nope don't think about it too much. So she says she knows where the Perez and. She's not going to tell him until she trusts him. I like this I really like so liar. Is The one speaking to him first. And he tries to pass on the authority to Farther Cora takeover and was just like this is her. This is her show man. I loved it has. Is that right exit. Her that's wonderful. It's such a great subversion because normally Peop- adults colts don't trust children and don't listen to children Lord five and tries to do it at some point in like not only. Is She a child who knows exactly what she's talking about. She has the science science to back it up. I guess you can call signs. Could you call it science. The elite theater that everyone knows entrust that she's keen read And and further Gorham just puts his faith in her as a man who has loved a witch in the past. You can tell he's learned who to trust and believe believe women you know. Yeah absolutely especially the young ones and her look of smug satisfaction when Fodder Gore says that. I'm I'm just following her lead so good wonderful and then she she walks on the deal. Oh man just like somebody walk enough of a car lot I love it. It's wonderful Soga Soga But you know he doesn't ends up not needing her until later so we see Lord Fon Fodder corm walking at night. Eight and Serafina beccles demon arrives and we learn that which is can send their distances or other demons great distances away So far corn recognizes Kaisa. The Hawk yes she's a White Hawk harsher in the book or not. Not she he. He is a White Hawk in the book. He is an enormous grey. Goose whose yeah I was really hoping for us was to. Aw because once again I feel like it's a cop out to have seventy five percent of your characters. Have Hawks Demons. Yeah yeah definitely a budget thing. Yeah we barely got any pan in this episode and we got to snakes It just feels feels like as co stars and also main characters of the series. They should be more. Oh my God. Did you see on on twitter twitter. He posted a short video of His son Sebastian meeting the puppet of Hester. Oh my the puppeteer was like doing bunny stuff with it. Like kind of leaned up quickly touch his nose to sessions ran away. Thank you it was wonderful awful and it was like covering his face like. Oh my God you know kids. Do I love the ozone You have to look at it. I didn't even know that he had children. Honestly only child just the one. Yeah all right. Well I'm going to. I'm going to find that in Lincoln. The show notes since since I know everyone wants to see it to you. There's that and then we also. He was showing a lot of behind the scenes stuff on his twitter. I'm really glad follow him. Yeah But he showed the Sarli puppet so much as an enormous enormous fucking statue of Yorick. And it's great and it's huge so big huge huge man eaters so oh cute eat me please so Kaisa calls fodder Corum Aurum Corum Van Textile. I'm not a I don't know if that's like a pet name. See what it did. Their feelings aren't pets. Alexa slob it. uh-huh excuse me excuse so this is where we we realize that that is his real name and farther is kind of title is it. Sounds like father for a reason you could see how fodder father okay. We have a little bit of feedback about that later. I think Because I should have waited know oops. We'll get more into that later. I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Thinks that's the spoiler. I don't even know if it is. But we'll talk about in the feedback Kaiser Kaiser so say hi Suze. Right says that The children are four days. North in ball vendor and Bov anger means fields of evil in language source. What is it? North Bowl is like battery. Evil and Vangere apparrel for field or meadow Minnows are guy a Serafina. PICCOLA will support them wherever they go and as he leaves you get the shot of F- Farther Corum with these tears in his eyes. Just he either either probably love this woman so much and was just devastated that she she lost her that he lost his son and I don't know if they do marriage or anything wife if the mother of his child at the same time but just seeing her demon was enough to bring that back and he is absolutely killing it in this role James COSMO absolutely absolutely as yeah. He's doing so much then. We see LYRA and Pan watching the northern lights and they we can glimpse the hidden city with their naked is I don't know I don't know what that means. Yeah but it's something that as Israel had to set up a complicated machine to be able to see right and she can just see it and I don't know if that's because she's a child or because she's a special child because she has started being able to read the elite theater. I'm whatever caused that. To start. Happening also has something to do with. Maybe it's all dust ooh questions questions. We need answers for Tony Finds Lyra and they have A little moment when bonding moment. Yeah I don't know if they're I don't know if this is his being aged down coming to fruition and that they're going to have Oh you know young relationship or something like that but love triangle. Yeah no or maybe. They're trying to remind us that Lyra is a girl. All that is old enough to start thinking about boys so that it makes more sense later on. I don't WanNa right. Yeah maybe you don't ship her and Roger if we ever see Roger Again. I don't know I don't know either. I'm I kind of want to talk about the geography of this for a minute. I don't I know why but the first time in navy the second time I was reading through the books I thought that they say that this you know places in the north and I was thinking like some fucking abandoned middle of nowhere location but I was looking at the map of quote Unquote Liars World and it if you lay that world and our world on top of each other the geography lines up So trawl listened. Is they call it lapland in the show so it's the this this other most port of Lapland which is Finland and world order so this involving replace is just the most northern part of Finland which is technically Norway as very far very far thank you very far in this. I figured I figured that it had some sort of real life. Parallel is they think Uric Eric and maybe I for your for I offer he offer for. They have vaguely sort of like a Nordic Arctic accents and they're from Svalbard which is a real place here. It's called spellbound here too. It's the northern Archipelago it's the. It's like a big island kind of yeah The northernmost archipelago of Norway Archipelago Salonga Art. She to Lego archepelago energy. But like Oh okay go to bail you go all right. We know it so then in the next scene we see Lee Finding Yorick finally and it's been three long years since they've seen each other but Leo's your debt for some reason he saved his life and but unfortunately you're drunk and asks leads asked Satu lead because I think he's just embarrassed to be seen that his armor and it in his drunken state and to be brought down Solo and Lee. You wants to help. And he's going to yeah. York is kind of two down on himself at this point to be willing to accept help. Dah I like the scene. I'm really curious about the backstory of Leeann Yorick and how they got to be buddies and I'm sure they have some really fun adventures. They go on didn't you you. You gave me a book about their first meeting Adventure yeah okay. That's what that was. I haven't read that yet but yeah we find out in the book I it's it's not too much of a spoiler. Lee Won his balloon in a card game. Of course he did and York. They kind of helped bail each other out of town where she wants. Our very similar to this action can see how you comes comes hard. Oh Yes oh yes he does and and he's always been like that. Seems like I don't know seems like you can get a lot done. This kind of you know being a little bit more subtle about it but you just walk in and announce your attention your intentions. I mean. There's something very honorable and admirable about that honesty. Yeah is a straightforward conman. Yeah data thing I guess it is now like hey if you're going to get within two inches of someone's face then you're asking for your watched snatched right it's true. Yeah Punch a Guy when you lose your watch that seems fair waller to you know So League goes to these this woman on your behalf half and says and I thing I assume he made this up but says he's got a bill where you officially one Yorks Armor and Steve Tries they tried to cite law back and forth to each other Before you eventually tries to bribe him and intimate that he can just changes changes mind with enough money but this is a cecil man who's very serious about his duties will his implying that the magisterial already bribed him to do this in the first place. It's like yeah so he's like well. If you you already accept bribes clearly so here take my bribe in the dude was like affronted fronted hypocrite and then he pulls out a gun on him to all right cool. I assumed I assume that he was just cowed by the power of magisterial but yeah So under threat of gun he leaves accurate Then we quickly see Mrs Coulter practicing her pitch to you for you for these. Come on you know for you for first. That's right there in the name and I think her monkey comes very close to speaking and She Shush Shush Shush Shush. Is it Yeah he was going to say something along the lines of you've got this or something and she's like the charity now at the staple stemple or just going to give her some advice. Like Oh have you. Have you thought about what offer for this instance. And this is She's got she's perfectly prepared no-dialogue Aetna dialogue allowed whatsoever so back at the dock. The ships are preparing to leave. You've and they already know that. Lord Azriel is being held by the barriers and they know about Bove anger. So they're gonna go ahead go More Lord Foss says that Yorick is a savage and he talked to someone probably the sicel men or some other magisterial asshole and she pulls out the elite the amateur to fact check his ass immediately again in the middle of Docs cool cool cool. She knows that she knows that you're uric was tricked. But each Lord Fahd doesn't care and he insists they leave anyway so again why anyone doubting her. She's The prophesied child if you don't have her on board then what are you doing this for. You're you're trying to find your kids but you really need her a yeah and then I okay so throughout the episode. I'm wondering how how at what point were they going to find the armor. Because I knew going into it that that was going to be what happens right. And that's the reason. The news being held there But it just felt like I don't know I wish I kept trying to check myself during the scene like what do people who don't I don't know what's happening no He doesn't have armor. They have to find. It is is being held there. Why would he be serving these people? I don't know seems like Lord. Fog just wants to add some extra steaks here. Wants to get the hell out of dodge. Because he knows that Mrs Coulter's on their the trail now I honestly I kind of liked. There was a little bit of conflict between Lyra Here because it it I don't know. Does it seem more realistic. We're talking about a world where there which is an armored bears. Does that even matter to say that. Something is realistic or not. Like if she were just getting everybody to blindly agree to her like she does in the books a lot of the time right. You can't just. Yeah it's tough because you can't just trust in Rome. I'm going to still going to call a science here. You can't just trust in these facts immediately. You need to you know that you have good instincts as well. Then you're making good decisions even with all of that information even if your Iq was tricked and everything then what's the best last thing for Lord Fahd to do for his people exactly yeah. He has a lot resting on his shoulders. Yeah and leaders Sometimes have to make difficult decisions even though they may not seem like the most correct thing to do right in the moment and you know she's so nuit doing this that maybe she knows the truth but maybe she doesn't have the the exact details right or something like that or maybe. It's still not even the best thing to do if she's right And he was right about going North Earth to London and he had to convince everyone to come along with him. Then so now I get it But is she no. She's also twelve your old girl. Nobody can double check the elite the honor to make sure she read it right is that Oh yeah she could and she's also known for telling stories. Search say the lead. The arbiter told me she's lying because that's how she's playing this bluff. Yeah tear bluffs. A few times episodes that is not entirely unlikely right So then we see back in the mysterious magisterial rather boreal accosts fraud Powell in the hall and wants no what Mrs Coulter knows. He Calls Him Ratty a few times in the scene and threatens to expose his filthy predilections predilections which I don't know he is he gay? He's gay or something or maybe he's fucking kids but also like. Why would you hide that foreign randall? According to the church every gay man is a pedophile. Yeah yeah she's faith versus science. I guess I guess I don't know I don't know where ratty comes from. I don't have any greater insight into that. So yeah he wants to know what Mrs Coulter new from the Matre and then wants to know what groomed discovered but then changes his mind to reframe the question how grooming discovered what he did because right. Now I'm thinking that nobody knows. He's traveling between worlds. So if he asked Fraud Pavel to defined what he discovered then surely all of that would be revealed to fraud Pavel in the majesty. I am at the same time. Sophie asks how he can tracing back that way. Yeah he he asks. How can he find what Grumman discovered so he instead of just asking straight what it? It is not having any context for it because they leave the ometer is not an especially the way that these old dudes with books read it. It's not very intuitive. You and get like a surface level of an answer to your question but nothing deeper So he decides to ask a much more specific question. which is what is my path ask to get to there? I think was a smart move. Yeah he says to report back with whatever he finds Why not just stay for the reading? Like Mrs Coulter. Does it takes weeks really. Yeah when these stupid takes weeks when adults specifically do it it takes a long time. Oh I think they mentioned that When Mrs Coulter was I asking questions back in that earlier scene they said it can take up to x number of weeks to get an answer? Gotcha there's a scene of them standing over the litter or I thought it was. It seemed like she was asking him to ask right then and she was watching. That's what confused me. They have to go through the books and like write down all the meetings and and cross reference because yeah they can from what I understand of what I've read. They can get in the correct mind line state to ask the question To pick the right symbols ask the question and then get symbols back but from there they have to flip through you know. The twenty books have believed the ometer stuff that they have and actually research. Where as we've seen with LYRA? It's intuitive she just knows Daca go up and down that ladder Lyra decides to find Lee to help find uric or help convince events your to come with them so while she's attempting to hire him she's deals all of his Bacon and You know she comes to the conclusion that they have as armor and Lee shares to with her and us that the armor is like a bear and armored bears demon. So it's it's very important. You can't just go often get some other arm or you can't just leave it here in the town right especially since well Yeah we see that he has afford this armor himself out of Sky Iron and it's a new armor Murray that he made after he was cast out from the bears. Proper whenever you call a gathering of bears tribe clan clan sounds good bear clan clan In the scene we also get my favorite line from the books and it was also in the movie the and we got it here again. I'm so glad but war is the seas swims in the air. You breeds yes. It's the bear himself is not saying at this time but we still have the line. Yeah it's a wild like it so much very poetic Then we see Lyra going to your Berenson an exchange for him joining their Motley crue Ragtag. gyp Sion's she will tell him where to find his armor armor and he also must agree not to kill anyone unless they pose an actual threat to life or they attack him like a fair trade yes so she looks at up immediately and your runs off to the center of the oratory and he's breaking everything along the way almost including Lyra. She's this going in a straight line man. The shortest path between two points is a straight line. Going just through things like leaving a bear shaped hole so the goons and silman tried to shoot him down. But that's that's a stupid thing for them to do. Yeah dancing off armor yes. They're desperately trying to stuff gun pattern. Do their guns and reload unload their single shot. Pistols York almost crushes Dudley's head before Lyra steps in and she's like no just walk away with me and also Lee shows up and helps I guess that's why he makes cute face at her and They agree to leave together while Kaisa Sarafina pickles which which her demon watches over them I I want want to hope that we get more scenes with Leeann Lyra but I know that we won't really not like this not seems like this. That's kind of a shame it's so good. It's two tube. Lovers play off of each other. Yeah I mean we don't know the show could remix everything and we just got all Leeann Lyra scenes place although Li All the York stuff with Lee stuff they did. They've already or D.. remixed a lot of seven this episode like we end up in the same place So it doesn't really matter that much but they have changed some things for efficiency here. Lyra surprises Lord Faw with York as well as Lee and you can see that Lee is really charmed by hell. Well Eric and bluff and he makes his pitch to Lord Fox for his services. So I'm kind of surprised that the are paying for any kind of help but Having an Aaronow seems like pretty pretty decent thing to pay for tells the easy to you. Say That you will pay for something because you never know who's GonNa who's GonNa die in this crazy mission do exactly I'm willing to bet that he doesn't get paid at all by the end of this survives. Maybe will if all of them survive. So then we see Mrs Coulter in another fucking fabulous. No outfit I at Yeah. I'm really the anti all impractical. snowshoe wear. But it's worth it for what she's she's doing here yet. The answer it's her K Walk and close She goes to you for Ranson's King Bear Cave to ask for control all over as burial An exchange she's going to offer a baptism and acceptance into the magistrate him that that really makes him perk up and this is so heartbreakingly cute what the year four is doing. It just being manipulated by her. You know I he he starts off you know with his with his walls up. He's GonNa look error because he doesn't want to be manipulated by her again and once she offers offers him this. The Acceptance Magic cerium. He peeks his head around the corner. And he's wearing this bad ass helmet. It's so cool but fucking Gaudy Armar. You're it's it's so extra I love it. It's so different from your ex. Yeah and he would be the first and only Barrett to be baptized sized and the fact that he even wants this is giving us some major insight into that character right. 'cause you know he's he's he's living in in cave and he's doing bear stuff Nans. They've we see the within this episode through Miss Coulter writing her practicing her speech. She's giving him here. You know. She helped to displace Yorick and give ear for control over over this throne so he wants some. He has human ish aspirations. But I don't know that seems to be the way that they're they're leading us. Thank you just got this like. He's got this kind of slack. Jaw thing underneath his helmet. Like maybe I'm he's been in some serious battles before. which isn't it was? It was heartbreaking. I I guess I just have a tender spot for people who are clearly being taken advantage. Hart Open Right. I should say even the fact that he is able to be manipulated in bear culture. It means that he is. He's leaving. His baroness 'cause I can't be tricked. the boiler. Because they haven't said yet in the show but soon we will find out is going to be tricked. Apparently so they say but I guess who knows. Yeah if I were part of a race of sentient Fox walks people I would say all. Fox's can't be tricked well we know that women can't be tricked so that's all I'm sure of. There's that were in the end. The end of this deal will be the he keeps Azriel all locked in bear prison and also destroys all of Israel's labs and Mrs Coulter Gets to control him in bear prison. MM SOUNDS KINDA hot. Potentially now we see how feisty Lyra was made these kinds of situations that they put themselves in So then we go back to the Egyptians and your Eric and Lee and Hester and everyone's setting off on on foot to their journey across the frozen Tundra and they're heading north again again. Helios love it so happy. Yeah I don't know where I wanNA know where the sleds are and the sled dogs. The Abkhazia's supposed to be their their navy ships Kazakhstan uphill. I don't know I don't know either. Maybe they're just going back to the shipped supplies actually journey north four days. They'RE GONNA have to walk without any dogs unless they find some along the way and train them how to these dogs finds mother bears. I don't know. Yeah sure anything's possible. So that's the end of the episode. I do have a little bit of feedback. If you'd like to hear what everyone's saying I would like like to hear it. Yes I don't have access to these emails. Tell me tell me all the things we nice surprise for you so a couple of these came in before this week's episode so but I think they're still relevant here Beth says something Alexis set a couple of weeks ago haunting me. What do I really agree that they are taking their sweet sweet time getting to the north which makes me worried about rushing later especially because they're putting more content and and then was in the book? I do remember that the book bills and much the same way so the reader is about as impatient as Lyra to get there but I would have thought that they might cut things to keep the pace moving having said that I love the remixing of we're introduced the other worlds introductions to certain other characters will make a lot more sense we've seen the buildup I keep internally screaming when we're in our world in anticipation of seeing them On the point about how they could show better the connection between humans and demons ends. I had a similar thought when the journalist was killed. One of the big things in Lara's world is how incredibly taboo. It is the touch another person's demon without very expressed permission to do so which totally makes sense but with the way she was killed. We didn't get any sense of that. She looks surprised when grabbed it but not horrified. It was actually a really horrific death because of the violation before she was killed. This theme will also be important in later episodes. I suspect so. It's a shame they didn't set it up here. It's also part of why Miss Coulter Sensor monkey after pan rather than doing anything yourself to him. Only part is it's also because she pulls Oliver Shitty behavior on the monkey to other it from her demons often fight it out to see which of the humans are in charge but human would never interfere in that. Anyway it's little details like that. which would really help build the world but I also agree more that just similar demons? Green time would be better screen. Time also still can't imagine how much the CGI budget is. This game of thrones who'd probably only see pan once every three episodes. Yes I'm still bitter about ghosts and thanks for asking. We all are got there with you. I agree I mean the thing about ghost is is that ghost could just sorry moves forward without ghost being there These these demons are really important. Especially when like a witch's demon is being sent out as a representative of her and you know he's got to be able to hold that on his own. No Grey goose could do that note. Migas can't in Moat as much as the Hawks not really voted. No so I don't know they just didn't WanNA WANNA probably look goofy is fuck and they decided with. This can't be which is demon goofy. It is it's got this this. He's got this muscle neck in this beefy chest thing making marks I. I don't know I was really disappointed. Pointed that it wasn't a goose because I'm so excited to see this goose but that those are my own expectations here. I mean it's is reasonable expectations. It's a very minor thing to change. I just keep thinking farther corum saying I'm really surprised at Tony's demon chose as a form of a hawk really nobody nobody else's literally a region that we've seen has a hawk. His mother has a hawk. What the fucker you talking about? Jasmine writes in Ruth. Wilson is killing it but ever since I first saw her and luther something about her face face threw me off then I realized it's her mouth. It's too big and curls up like a cartoon when she smiles and makes her look like docker Dr Finkelstein from the nightmare before Christmas and a freaks freaks me out. Okay I had this exact same thought. I don't know if anyone out there listening who also listened to our American horror story. podcast but I do have this. I don't know has a good way to say this with us like an asshole. I notice these things like Sarah Paulson's very very moist upper lip so I immediately noticed this on Ruth Wilson but I wasn't willing to say it because I'm trying to keep this positive no matter. How much Lin Manuel? Well Maranda tries to take that away from me and I don't know it doesn't make her any less attractive or anything like that. It's just once you see it. It cannot be unseen so thanks for ruining ruining that fresh. Jasmine second part. Do you think the series series is being a bit over dramatic while taking too many episodes to lay out the story. I read all the books as a kid and I love them so I know the Journal Story Arc but I've been trying engaged. How good the show is by my fiance's reaction as a non book reader and he seems ambivalent and not that excited so far the scene in episode three of Lyra giving rousing rousing speech to the gym and then rapidly listening to this? Oh I'm sorry raptly listening to this random little girl tell them they need to risk their lives and livelihoods go north. Orth seems a little ridiculous but maybe I'm over thinking this I mean. Is there all fair points. I can't argue with them. Yeah I get that that they are this does seem a little bit far fetched. But you'll have to keep in mind and they did lay this out in this in. The show is that the Gypsies are all pretty. Well aware that she's as prophesied child so eun if she weren't compelling which I think she is I think they know that that's the right choice. And there are people like Lord Fall and Raymond Van Garrett who will always push back against inste- what's just against what's rational or just what's assumes these people want to still have control over their lives so there. That Voice of the audience sang a wiry doing this. Let's think about it right especially well pertaining to that seen it could also be an ego thing is you have this very small girls saying we should fight and if you say no. We shouldn't fight. That makes you a little bit like a coward right so that could be some motivation ovation there too but I almost feel like the scene where Lord Faw's telling her no. We're going. Forget the bear. Let's just go is almost like an apology. The previous scene in hell vaguely unrealistic had right. Yeah and it's not it doesn't become real until it's maybe maybe twenty seven kids but that you know that's just an abstract number some kid out my life that's being affected. So yeah I get that next email is from jared. Jared says has a quick question on the books versus the TV show. Jared is not familiar earlier the books at all and just a TV just TV show so how true is TV show. Keeping with the book also are the books already finished or is it still ongoing. I see they've already been renewed for season two. I don't want to get into a G. R M game of thrones situation Can you are you able to speak to that. Without without spoiling too much is end the feedback. So if you're if you're still listening be prepared to know how much of the story we get into you. I guess I Yeah I can talk about it. Without being too spoiler I will say they have changed the the way that information is being given to us in some ways but as far as the the the main points of the plot. It's following the books pretty closely. I would say we're just getting more insight into what is happening outside of liars perspective. Did you say that they are cutting some of the second book like the other our world nece into this season two they are in. It's not they aren't like changing the the win of when things take place. All they're showing showing is the lead up to things that happened in the second book but from the perspective of these characters that are introduced in the second book or you know their for their actions that are introduced in the second book. They're showing the lead up to that here in this cutting that in which makes sense it's linear storytelling. And it's preparing us for the frankly quite weird shit happens that happens at the end of this particular adventure of liars going North Yeah Jared also asked. Are the books already finished or are they still ongoing. You have nothing to appear on that point. The original trilogy is finished. which is what the the show is following and the second trilogy is almost finished? There's just one more book coming out and I'm pretty sure that's coming out pretty soon within the next couple of years pullman is pretty good at sticking deadline. That's good good. Yeah and he did the right thing. He finished the original trilogy or the original series and then started adding the supplementary material. I think you're the expert here there. It is yeah it is supplementary. It's the the beginning the beginning of the story and also the end end of the story. You think Just ask me for speculation. Now do you think that's going to be it or you think maybe there could be more other stories like I dunno whatever main characters we end up with their children in the future. You think they'll do anything like that. I don't know because is what a almost everything that we are shown is from liars perspective. There is a secondary character whose perspective is introduced in the new trilogy her. But I don't know if there's any future in that I don't know how many answers are going to be given by the end of the nutriology. It's the second book ended in a weird place. I'm really interested to read the third one but its answers. It's all about answering these questions that we have dust and its role in everything and the relationship of humans and their demons All that good shit that's good Final final email. This week is from to begin. Saw someone who is completely new to the story. I was hoping you might be able to shed some light on some of the character names. There's a lot lot of world building involved with a story like this and it makes it hard to keep track of. Who's you for example? I kept hearing Father Corum rather than far. Corum is farther his first name or some kind of Title C.. You said that father and fodder are kind of the same thing here Is that I don't know there's a relevant how they got to foster father farts alive. Sicily how could you know. No I think is just a sort of vaguely cockney cauquenes sation. Well She's Asian of father With you if you say father with a slightly Welsh accent it ends up sounding a little bit farther so you just spelling it that way and everyone does it and that is kind of the role that he serves in. The jetsons is sort of spiritual. I don't WANNA say spiritual guide gives the wrong connotation but like a spiritual adviser right like a godfather the farthest how far realty lists the hardest part is I can go just aged four years ago. Grabby God six more grey hairs. It's a begins also similarly. I wonder how one becomes a Lord in this world and what it means. There's a Lord Faw who appears to be a GYP. Shen if I'm not mistaken. And there is a Lord Azriel and a Lord boreal and none of these people are in league so so I'm curious why they have the same titles. Nail have power to then call themselves Lord Dell have magical powers power either through money or just other people's regard for them Lord boreal Has Money obviously obviously the way he dresses. And everything. You Tesla Yeah He. It has power in that in that way or Israel has power in the sense that I mean. Look at all the things that we know about him. We know that he does. Does these crazy expeditions. We know that he bangs any woman he wants. Basically just okay and yeah so you know he can call himself Lord if he wants to and or FAA is the only one that has like maybe actually lowered people well under him. Yeah see that's all we've got this week Laura Lexus. Don't like it. Yeah so we are going to talk about spoilers that are regarding any and everything but mostly just this season kind of spoiler knowledge. So if you don't want to know something we'll definitely be spoiled for you. You can tune out now. We'll see you next week. Okay The one inside I have in there could be questions why a priest was holding a bears armor specifically a priest and in the book a liar reads the theater and she or in her reading of the thermometer where the armor was it gives her additional insight light that the priest was testing it for spirits. Yeah interesting which never has anything to do with anything else ever again. A really HONNAMA throwaway line. I can understand why they didn't include it here. It's just just because the magisterial him just doesn't understand the power or the connection between you know your soul in this thing They're mad curious about it. They are testing the relationship between demons and people title and this is some kind of foreign concept that they while they can do is throw their own magic got it. Yeah also like what are demons composed of is that is that matter the same as the matter in other things that are also very important Who knows they want to know certainly do? It's called Experimental Theology which is physics our world. I think they'll go into that a little bit more well in the second book but I don't know what it is going to come and show maybe two episodes for now if at all. Yeah Yeah. That's all all we've got this week until next week's episode I'm your host. I'm three polar bears no trenchcoat Alexis. Bye Bye it What happened what happened? Got In your own head really hard not to do drink some water spe- later WHO TURNED OUR NEW OFFICE INTO A wave pool? The boss was stressed about starting this new business. She thought the ways as would help. Relax US grab a tube. Maybe she'd worry less if we just had GEICO commercial auto GEICO insurance vehicles. That's good to know. Yeah they can help business owners with all kinds of insurance needs. That's really good to know. Oh looks like high tides coming in hold onto something get to know gyco and see how easy commercial auto insurance can be.

How to win an argument (at the US Supreme Court, or anywhere) | Neal Katyal

"I'm Elise Hugh. You're listening to Ted talks daily. You think that the strength and substance of a legal argument matters the most when you argue before the highest court in the land, the US Supreme Court. And technically, that's true. But as Supreme Court litigator Neil Cat Y'all tells us in today's Ted. Talk the way you make your arguments really make a difference when it comes to the power of persuasion. Even if you and I never go before the nine justices what caught y'all shares about his communication strategies or something all of us can use. Support for Ted talks daily comes from IBM. Right now making informed decisions is more important than ever especially when deciding when to return to the workplace and how to do it safely. That's why IBM Watson is helping businesses prioritize employee safety managed facilities, and trace potential exposures with Watson works a set of AI infused capabilities. Your Business can protect the health safety and productivity of its people. Let's put smart to work visit IBM DOT COM Slash Watson works to learn more. Fourteen years ago I stood in the Supreme Court argue my first case and it wasn't just any case was a case that experts called. One of the most important cases the supreme court had ever heard. It considered whether on Tahema was constitutional and whether the Geneva Conventions applied to the war on terror, it was just a handful of years after the horrific. Eleven, the Supreme Court had seven Republican appointees and to democratic ones and my client happened to be Osama bin Laden's drive. My opponent was a solicitor general of the United States America's top courtroom lawyer. He'd argued thirty five cases. I wasn't even thirty five years old and to make matters worse the Senate for the first time since the civil war passed a bill to try and remove the case from the docket of the Supreme Court. Now, the speeding coaches say I'm supposed to build tension and not tell you what happens. But the thing is we want. How today I'm GonNa talk about how to win an argument at the Supreme Court or anywhere the conventional wisdom that you speak with confidence. That's how you persuade. I think that's wrong. I think confidence is the enemy of persuasion persuasion isn't about empathy about getting into people's heads that's what makes Ted what it is. It's why you're listening to this talk you could have read it on the cold page, but you didn't same thing with Supreme Court arguments we write written briefs with cold pages, but we also have an oral argument. We don't just have a system in which the justices right questions in you right answers why because argument is about interaction I wanNA take you behind the seats to tell you what I did and how these lessons are generalized -able not just for winning an argument in court but for something far more profound. Now. Obviously, it's going to involve practice but not just any practice we'll do my first practice session, Burdwan Tottenham Oh up to Harvard and had all these legendary professors throwing questions. and. Even though I had read, everything rehearsed a million times I wasn't persuading any my arguments were resonating. I was desperate I everything possible read every book reversed a million times in wasn't going anywhere. So ultimately I stumbled on this guy, he was an acting coach she wasn't even a lawyer. You'd never set foot in the Supreme Court and he came into my office one day wearing a billowy white shirt and a Bolo Tie and he looked at me with folded arms and said Look Neil I can tell that you don't think this is GonNa work but just humor me tell me your argument. So I grabbed my legal pad and I started reading my argument. He said, what are you doing I said I'm telling you my argument. He said your argument is illegal pat I said no but Myron is on a legal pad. He said, Neal Look at me tell me your argument so I did. An instantly I realized by points were resonated I was connecting to another human being. and. He could see the smile starting to form as I was saying my words and he said okay. Neil. Now do your argument holding my hand. And I said what and he said yeah hold my hand. I was desperate. So I did it and I realized. Wow. That's connection that's the power of how to persuade. And it helped. But truthfully, I still got nervous as the argument date approached and I knew that even though. was about getting into someone else's shoes and empathizing I needed to have a solid core i. so I did something outside of my comfort zone I wore jewelry not just anything but a bracelet that my father had worn his whole life until he passed away just a few months before the argument I put on a time that my mom had given me just for the occasion. And I took out my legal pad and wrote my children's names on it because that's why I was doing this for them to leave the country better than I had found. I, got to court and I was calm the bracelet the tie the children's names at all centered me. Like a rock climber extending beyond the precipice if you have a solid hold, you can reach out and because argument is about persuasion I knew I had to avoid emotion displays of emotion fail. It's kind of like writing an email. All bold in all caps it persuades no-one it's about you the speaker not about the listener or the receiver. Now look in some settings, the solution is to. Be Emotional. You're arguing with your parents and you use motion and it works why? Because your parents love you. But Supreme Court justices don't love you. They don't like to think of themselves as the type of people persuaded by emotion and reverse engineered that incite to setting a trap for my opponent to provoke his emotional reaction. So I could be seen as the common steady voice of the wall. It worked and I remember sitting in the courtroom. To, learn that we had one that the Guantanamo tribunals were coming down and I went out onto the courthouse steps and there was a media firestorm, five hundred cameras and they're all asking me, what is the decision mean? What does it say? Well, the decision was one, hundred, eighty, five pages long I had time to read it nobody had but I knew what it meant, and here's what I said on the steps. Of the court here's what happened today you have the lowest of the low, this guy who is accused of being bin Laden's driver one of the most horrible men around and he sued not just anyone but the nation and the world's most powerful man the president of the United States new brings the not in some rinky dink traffic court but in highest court of the land, the Supreme Court of the United States. Any. Winds. That's something remarkable about this country. In many other countries, this driver would have been shot just for bringing his case and more to the point for me his lawyer would have been shot. But that's what makes America different what makes America special because of that decision the Geneva Conventions applied to the war on terror which meant the end of goes prisons worldwide the end of waterboarding worldwide and an end to those Guantanamo military tribunals by methodically building the case getting into the justices heads we were able to quite literally change the world sounds easy right? You can practice a lot avoid displays of emotion and you sue can win any argument. I'm sorry to say it's not that simple by strategies aren't foolproof while I. Have One more Supreme Court cases than most anyone I've also lost a lot to indeed after Donald Trump was elected I was constitutionally speaking terrified please understand this is not about left versus right or anything like that. I'm not here to talk about that but just to weekend to the new president's term, you might remember those scenes at the airports president trump had campaigned on a pledge. Saying. Quote I Donald. J, trump are calling for a complete and total shutdown of all. Muslim. Immigration to the United States, and he also said quote I think Islam hates us and he made good on that promise banning immigration from seven countries with overwhelmingly Muslim populations. My legal team and others went into court right away and sued and got that I travel ban struck down from revised it. We went into court again and got that struck down he revised it again. And changed adding North Korea because we all know the United States has a tremendous immigration problem with North Korea, but it did enable his lawyers to go to the Supreme Court and say see this isn't discriminating against Muslims includes these other people to. Now. I thought we had the killer answer to that. I won't bore you with the details, but the thing is we lost five votes to four. And I was devastated. I was worried my powers of persuasion had waned. And then two things happened. The I was I noticed a part of the Supreme Court's travel ban opinion that discussed the Japanese American internment that was a horrific moment in our history in which over one hundred, thousand Japanese Americans had been interned in camps. My favorite person to challenge the scheme was Gordon Hair Bi she university of Washington student he turned himself. into the FBI who said look you're a first time offender you can go home and Gordon said no, I'm quaker. I. Have to resist on just laws and so they arrested him and he was convicted Gordon's case to the Supreme Court and again I'm going to do that thing where a quash any sense of anticipation you have and tell you what happened. Gordon lost but he lost because of a simple reason because the solicitor general, the top four courtroom lawyer for the government told the Supreme Court that the Japanese American internment was justified by military necessity. And now so even though his own staff had discovered that there was no need for the Japanese American intern and that the FBI and the intelligence community, all believed that an indeed that was motivated by racial prejudice has staff begged the solicitor. General tell the truth don't suppress seven. What if the solicitor general do nothing he went in and told the military necessities story. And so the court upheld Gordon Hirabayashi conviction and the next year upheld Fred Core Matsumoto's intern. Now, why was I thinking about that? Because nearly seventy years later, I got to hold the same office head of the Solicitor General's Office and I got to set the record straight explaining that the government had misrepresented the facts in Japanese internment cases and when I thought about the Supreme Court's travel ban opinion I realized something the Supreme Court in that opinion went out of its way to overrule the Koru Matsu case now, not only have the Justice Department said the Japanese interment was wrong the supreme court said so to. That's a crucial lesson about arguments timing all of you when you're arguing have that important lever to play when do you make your argument? You don't just need the right argument. You need the right argument at the right moment. When is it that your audience a spouse? A boss a child is going to be most receptive. Now look sometimes it's totally out of your control delay has caused that are too extensive, and so you've gotta go in and fight and you in very well may like me at the timing. Wrong. That's what we thought in the travel ban and you see Supreme Court wasn't ready. So early in President Trump's turn to overrule his signature initiative just as it wasn't ready to overrule FDR's Japanese-american term and sometimes you just have to take the risk. But it is so painful when you lose and patience is really hard. That reminds me of the second lesson. Even, vindication comes later I realized how important the fight now it's because it inspires because it educates. I remember reading Columbine in culture about the Muslim ban. Here's what she said arguing against trump was first generation American neo cocktail thorough plenty of tense generation America haters you couldn't get one of then argue we should end our country through mass immigration and that's when emotion which is so anathema to a good argument was important to me. It took emotion outside the courtroom to get me back in when I read Coulter's words I was angry. I rebel against the idea that being a first generation American would disqualify me. I rebel against the idea that mass immigration would end this country. Instead of recognizing that is literally the rock on which this country was built. When read coulter I thought about so many things in my past I thought about my dad who arrived here with eight dollars from India and didn't know whether to use the colored bathroom or the white. I thought about his first job offer at a slaughterhouse, not a great job for a Hindu. I thought about how when we moved to new neighborhood in Chicago with one other Indian family that family had a cross burn on its lawn because the racist aren't very good at distinguishing between. African Americans and Hindus and I thought about all the hate mail I got during Guantanamo for being a lover. Again, the races aren't very good with distinctions between Hindus or Muslims iber Ann Coulter God being the child of an immigrant was a weeks she was profoundly profoundly wrong. It is my strength because I knew would America was supposed to stand for? I knew that in America me a child of a man who came here with eight dollars in his pocket could stand in the Supreme Court of the United States on behalf of a detested for like Osama bin Laden's driver and win, and it made me realize even though I may have lost the case I was right about the Muslim ban to no matter what the court decided. They couldn't change the fact that immigrants do strengthen this country indeed in many ways, immigrants love this country the most when I read an cultures words, I thought about the glorious words of our Constitution the First Amendment Congress shall make no law. Establishing religion I thought about our national creed E. Pluribus. Out of many come one, most of all I realized the only way you can. Truly. is by giving up. So I joined a lawsuit by the US Congress challenging president. Trump's edition of a citizenship question to the census decision with huge implications. It was a really hard case most thought we would lose but the thing is we won five votes to four the supreme. Court. Basically said, president. Trump and his cabinet secretary had law. And now I've gone back up and rejoin the fight and I hope each of you in your own ways does so too. I'm getting backup because I'm a believer that good arguments do win out in the. The Ark of justices long and Ben's often slowly but it bends. So long is we bend? And I realized the question is not how to win every argument. It's how to get back up when you do lose because in the long run, good arguments will win out if you make a good argument, has the power tower live to stretch beyond your core to reach those future minds and that's why all this is. So important I'm telling you how to win arguments for the sake of winning arguments. This isn't a game. I'm telling you this because even if you don't win right now, if you make a good argument, history will prove you right I. Think back to that axiom coach all the time and I've come to realize the hand I was holding. The hand of Justice. That outstretched hand will come for you. It's your decision to push it away or to keep halting. Thank you so much for listening.

This is a book podcast where one of us reads the book and tells the other other one about it so andrews gonna tell you about what book this week amber spyglass by philip pullman. It's the third his dark materials book and just super clear before we start talking about other stuff we are we read books but we're not like literary and we're kind of silly yes and i aren't we regularly get. I tunes reviews that are just like. This isn't what i wanted it to be great. Maybe you could just not telling you about that and not ruin our numbers find something especially because they didn't order the podcast.

Just don't need to tell you know what enough of this negative another this negative. I'm so happy to see you digitally for the first time in several weeks talk to you because it has been a while people have been showering us with digital of because what happened andrew before we talk about this book. Something else happened to you. I think to me solely to you so yeah as as you all knew my wife. Susan and i were expecting a child and we got what we expected. A baby came star star reviews five star review two stars. This baby wasn't what i expected now. Our son henry was born on a day talking to mention it toward the end of july. Let's just say yeah a week late. He himself was overdue. Which is a joke. The many of you made thank you very much every very good a lot. The people did really good work on that. One <hes> see yeah we we had a good we had a backlog of episodes recorded and to kind of ease because okay. Here's some if you didn't know usually when record the show. It's like we're recording monday show eight hours before it goes up yeah. I don't know if that is gonna fly anymore because it's it's tough out here for a dad so we as we record this henry is not quite he's like two and a half weeks old yeah yeah and by the time you hear it. He'll probably be pushing two months old almost which is or like a month to have a different. It's a different time there is my understanding of newborns is there is the time before six weeks and the time after six weeks sure sure sure sure sure the two weeks ago. I didn't even think at this point like now i am. I am just hired him my bones but i do feel like i can get to six weeks to knew that oh oh and then you're gonna head on. You're going to six weeks and you're gonna be like telling me when he's eighteen eighteen place. Yeah we had a baby mama baby. You're doing great. Everyone is is is fine. We are adjusting to the new order of things. It's amazing. How quickly get use ted staff sure you want. You had one anecdote you wanna. Tell me and then we we should start talking about this book due to you aside from existing last night. We were in front of the t._v. I was he had. Hey idiot and we we are. We are breastfeeding in primarily supplementing with formula right now because he's just not like drinking good enough well. It's just the thing that happens sometimes and there's some there's stuff about breastfeeding that i could go into but i want this podcast not this podcast <hes> so we gave him some mm formula and he's been he's been drinking. We've been supplementing with formula for like a week. He's been totally fine but last night we gave him an ounce of formula and we're sitting in front of the t._v. Just getting in our glow on and he just like bar is not a spit up babies when baby spit up. It's basically just like white drool rule. It's not that big a deal but he just straight up soaked to the skin barbed on me sorry and and the couch and the quilt that was on the couch and all the clothes i was wearing henry is such a party boy. Ooh henry has also peed my pants but <hes> yeah he just he just threw up on me and it is a month ago. I'm not sure if another person had just us with no warning hauled off grown up on me. I don't know how i would have been about it but now nowadays. I'm just like all right man all right. Let's talk about this book. This is a baby if i'm this i have a baby and that will explain everything about how this episode is gonna go. Oh great to say that you read the first two books in this series. <hes> you sign was a dad who enjoy them so we kept going yeah <hes> <hes> and they don't think i'm saying anything controversial when i say that the first book is far and away the best of the three of okay sure well as i recall <hes> so the first book was published in america as the golden compass muniz published in the u._k. As the northern lights <hes> this is the second book is the subtle knife and this book is the amber spyglass. I think you came out of subtle knife going. This is the first half of a story. That's <hes> okay. This one is the second half of good okay. <hes> this book was published in two thousand <hes>. It was the first the children's book to be listed for the man booker prize. Which is the big like you wrote a book in english good job prize. We're going to get the woman booker reprise god. You're probably not the first person who have said that. I shouldn't be saying we're so happy. I was back in the first time. I do something completely brand. You're just like all right wasn't a down. I i forgot to be honest. <hes> just we're gonna like spoil these books because we're going to have to talk about the whole series as a whole. I bet there's not too much about pullman. That's new that we should probably talk talk about yeah. Like what have you done for me lately fill. He has written new books about these characters. A._c.'s working on a new trilogy. I think we are part of the way through. Yes don't remember how far 'cause i've done research for this episode beyond his grabbing having clips from the book from it's like the bell so vase and then lara's oxford i think is the next one or or the book of dust. I think prequels so yes there prequel books so i just found like a couple random interviews with him as people were interviewing him about this new series and like there's a fun one with the new york times where he talks about <hes>. He talked about his writing process every day andrew. He writes three pages long on hand. Okay he had imagined writing a novel longhand. I know that people do it but it just seems. I think i would be thinking about man. I'm going to have to type later through. I do understand like even even though i i edit exclusively in google docs and online like in in type computers i do know that just editing getting feels different. When it's on a piece of paper that's true. That's very just it. Is it better. I don't know if it's necessary better. I think you maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe you're being a little more mindful and careful about it but mostly yeah i'm just i'm here to save save time and writing something out on paper and making my thirty three year olds hands hurt and then having to type. It just sounds like too much work. He talked about his office and all the things he keeps on his desk and he and the interview says there is special paper to. I started his dark materials on the sort of paper. You could get thirty years ago. A four narrow lined with two the holes then they started making paper with four holes and i discovered i couldn't write on that. This is what i did. That's even more bonner's. I had to finish the amber spyglass and i could only only get four whole paper so i got some four whole paper and some of those little white stickers and put them on the whole he then found a canadian ian supplier with the paper he wanted and bought what he's he called ten thousand years worth <unk> my god which is the more like right early anecdote. Is it this or is it the thing about george martin where he can only write in like word perfect zero on his dos computer. That's i do understand like where this is coming from. I think i think every writer has a specific set up that even though it doesn't actually help their productivity did they feel that the product yeah and that that feeling is what actually helps them street. It's not it's nothing about the actual physical set of their of their environment. It's all like this. I'm in. I'm in writing mode now. This is a context that lends itself to writing so sure so i i want to. I just wanted to share that because we haven't touched. We won't touch in with pullman biography too much in this episode. You can go listen to our golden compass episode if you want more of that the main thing to remember probably as that he is. He is a pretty vocal critic of like christianity and that is part of the point of these books. Kaha there is a point at which a character literally says the christian religion is a very powerful and convincing mistake. That's all sure i think we touched in the subtle knife episode a little bit on how funny it is that the harry potter series got so much pushback and flak yes yes from evangelical types for promoting witchcraft or whatever it is that that means but this this series of books that is literally saying christianity is alive and yeah. The first book is like the church is kidnapping in harming children right like okay eh. That's the second part is real like we compact that too so yeah i mean we live in pennsylvania in our state's attorney. General all has done a lot lot lot of whipped around that in the last couple of years so he's been unavowed in his opposition to organized religion vowed is is not the word unabashed. Basch is the word that i want. Thanks for being here. I am correcting your were 'cause you're the word man i remembered a the difference between swale in a onesie. I'm cracking your word choice. I did <hes> do a little bit of research on the fall of man andrew from who who'll awesome cool light reading from the bible. Maybe you've heard of it because a little indie title i think is really gonna go along a it's book in the whole series his dark materials. Does it takes its title from john. Milton's paradise lost <hes> and it kind of re-mixes mixes some of those ideas <hes> so in case you don't know i just wanted to give us like just the bare bones to remind us of what happened from from from wikipedia. The fall of man or the fall is a term used in christianity to describe the transition of the first man and woman from a state of innocent obedience to god to a state of guilty disobedience. God made adam and eve. You've made he said. Don't eat the fruit. The snake showed up said eve that fruit she said adam eat this the fruit and then they were shamed and he kicked them out and condemned adam to working and eve too painful pregnancy bingo bango in milton's version in paradise lost adam and eve already have like a sexual relationship and just hang out and do whatever <hes> <hes> but then the serpent is like yo do you wanna be god's. You should have some of this out of his great apple adam deci. Let's apple ball like did he had invented the twinkies. Yeah i think it's just fruit and then like a bunch of stuff like layers upon layers of of history turned it specifically into an apple <hes> and then adam in milton decides to eat from the tree when he realizes that eve has sinned also so 'cause he's such a hero that he's gonna be guilty to <hes> and then y'all labor yeah then they get cast out of the garden. They're told what's going to happen to humanity about about the flood and then maybe one day christ will show up and redeem everyone <hes> and i did not realize 'cause i haven't read the milton is like that. The first half of the book look is actually all about like the war of angels and satan leading a rebellion and then satan becomes the snake aac who tempts them so it's all like revenge for that <hes> i tried to find more research on like specific parallels parallels to this series and i just kept ending up on like academic j. store pages and reading sentences like pullman majesty cerium draws parasitic acidic lexus imagery of christianity to affect a confusion of fantasy with actual organizations and i got a headache and i uh-huh i couldn't keep doing i'll just say same yeah i was just i was thinking a little bit about god right sure because he made people yeah and gave people all the stuff that they have all like emotional parts in the physical parts and they got mad at them using the parts that for for doing that stuff that he gave that specifically he didn't want them to know about good and evil forever reason but he also put the means to accessing that information like really just like it's folder with no password protection call taxes and like you know there's company cornyn yeah temptation and i i was thinking about how weird that was but then i was thinking here's where i'm going to bring my cool dad perspective. Every episodes can just have new like dad thoughts. Dad the dad moment the daddies when henry is just like really like right now. He is crying like you know like a colleague a normal amount but he's he's crying enough that he is sort getting a little hoarse from all the yelling. He's doing yes and it makes it. It makes us cry sound worse than it just really. It sounds really uncomfortable and it's funny. How like i have had to stop myself from like being like upset at him. Yes or like mad had with him sure which comes for this you just he just doesn't he's just a baby. He doesn't understand anything. I don't know if the point i make you've spent so long being able to to deal with people with an equal amount of information about the world and about how things work you could say don't do that or why would you do that and he literally has no concept of it yes so and it's it's not fair for me to get mad at him for not understanding that he's only making his problem around worse way keeps crying so you're say do think i think i think i understand how god i think i'm also doing a better job than him because okay <music>. I'm realizing that i am upset and but that's like a on me. That's not on the baby who doesn't know anything. Yeah okay so that's how you are better than particularly john milk. That's how i this is my john lennon bigger than jesus moment everybody. Everybody's gonna burn all of our podcasts but it's fine. They're just gonna download okay andrew so all right. Let's do plot stuff. Let's do this. This is the part where i have to do the podcast and i'm just i'm not worried about it at all. Don't worry you're gonna. You're fine worrying about it. Yeah hold on hold on subtle knife. Okay we just i need to like. I was going to go back to golden. Come o- or you you do this. Okay hopefully yeah you can you can help. Also i'll do my best. <hes> golden compass was about a girl. She's like eleven or twelve named lyra bell aqua. She is a child who lives and has the run of this college. In this universe that is like ours but subtly different. The main difference is that people all have these things called damon's that <music> are usually they they take kind of an animal form and they are stand ins ford sold gaza. Lyra has a bunch of adventures. There's a woman her friend robert wright roger roger okay roger yeah larry's friend roger disappears and she wants to help find him <hes> she also meets this woman mrs coulter who wants to take her away from the college and kind of provide her a home and and provide for her future education in a way that that <hes> the college really can't like it's not set up to to teach young girl who doesn't wanna show up oh to class in the first place. There's also this guy lord azriel. Who is i in. The first book is set up to be her uncle sure. Well sounds like that's gonna in a change but okay yeah. He's <hes> i. I'm pretty sure we talked about this. We ought and he is doing these. Experiments with stuff called called dust like this mysterious material called dust that seems to have some relationship with like matter and with people and with our universe but it's not it's not made explicit what that is yet. The lyra has a bunch of adventures trying to find roger. <hes> mrs coltart turns out to be her mom. She's also like super evil role and is doing horrible experiments on kids china like separate them from their damon's to release this. This dust related energy cool lord. Lord azriel is trying to use dust like open up a portal to another world which he does lyra helps. This big all armored battle bear named yorick bournissen probably baroness than stop. Stop welcome back. The first book is fun because because you meet a lot of characters there's a lot of fun world building around the damon's and a lot of fun like fantasy adventure stuff sure like you got a guy who flies a hot air balloon when you got armored bear who fights another armored bayer for control of the bear kingdom yea it is a fun book that obviously leads into the next book but also think stands alone pretty well as its own thing okay subtle knife go subtle knife introduces this character named will who who is he is a boy who lives in our world like not the damon robot like our actual world great. He is mature beyond his is years in part because his dad disappear longtime ago and because his mother has some of some mental problems that he had to grow he is yeah yeah he had to grow up and he is trying to hide that from people at school from authority figures from pretty much anybody who could notice and then use use that as an excuse to like take him away from his mother <hes> but that that book begins with like some serious men are looking for something in his house will accidentally kills one of them and he is on the run and he sees this weird window into that turns out to be into another universe. <hes> this is going to third location. It's not liars universe. It's not wills wills universe. It's a different place. City got say sit to got mama mia. That's what it's called. City got say yeah. I make it a spectre specter's. Hey he and lyra has at the end of the first book. Lord azriel kills a kid and opens up load portal's wanted into another universe and so- lyra chases him and will come into this other universe and then they me the and the third location they are distrustful of each other at first but become fast friends <hes> they have some adventures liars got the goal the tischler chiller golden compass and then he got his knife right basically yeah the golden compasses basically a cool we board that tells you everything that you need to know great i usually it takes a long time to understand the meanings of all the things that it can tell you but lyra just intuitively understands it will through. There's this. There's about it yeah. We didn't hope has about it. We'll get this thing called the subtle knife. It's a knife can open up these windows into another universe reveal. Just found one right at the knife is the thing that makes them <hes> and and they uncovered the dust and like find azriel or or something right yeah. That's basically it. <hes> there's also this other character who is in <hes> subtle knife. I didn't get to talk about very much. A scientist ientist named mary malone okay who is a scientists in our slash wills world who is doing these experiments that turn out to be dust adjacent like it turns out in in we visit a lot of universes in this third book in particular and most of the societies that we run into have some understanding being of dust but they often like no it as as a different thing or they don't let you know there there may be not as far along in being able to see it and and understanding what it does okay but it is clearly a constant thing in all these universes so there's a bit in subtle knife that i didn't get to talk about because because mary he is a fairly large part of the third book but she's really only just getting set up to go in. This in the second book like the second book is way more concerned with the storyline and then also the lease scores beads storyline kind of a who's a hot air balloonist and surrogate father figure in some ways is i feel like pretty much every adult man that lyra meets ends up thinking of himself as a surrogate father for sure because he's just so like she so rat so so mary moloney setup as like a of dust in name alone is doing these experiments and there's this whole passage where malone is on a computer and she's it's program or something that the university has been working on for a long time. She gets on a computer and she starts like i._m. Ing with dust yes poi- i. I don't know how much of this i should read but she is. She is on this computer. She opens us program. She had been working on and she's she's manipulating things there were there was she almost understood something but didn't quite but then she meets lyra and talks to lyra and like something kind of clicks and she finishes this program and then there is a she she she cooks herself into this computer and she just she types low. I'm not sure what i'm doing. Maybe this is crazy. <hes> those words arrange themselves on the left left side of the screen which wasn't like part of the program so that surprises her and she's like whoa something's going on here and on the right side of the screen appear the words ask a question and so this is a conversation. This is the i._m. Between mary malone and what turns out to be like dust who are are you shadows which is the name of the the name of dust in this world. I guess what what merriment understood as dust are you shadows. Yes yes are you the same as lara's dust yes and is that dark matter yes dark. Matter is conscious. Evidently what i said to oliver oliver this morning my idea about human evolution is that correct but you need to ask more questions i'm so she'd iams with us for a while and dust steles her essentially you you need to find where willin lyra when find the girl in the boys no more time <hes> you must play the serpent bennett says ooh <hes> yeah we didn't talk about this okay and a directs her to tells her a specific place to go and this turns out to be a place where another like rift between universes has opened <hes> so the last we see of her in subtle knife she is she has tricked her way into into this other world and but we don't really we don't see what happens to her and this is this is one of the many ways in which subtle knife doesn't feel as much like a book book as golden compass. It feels like the first half of thing because they have this thing that is so clearly the action like this. This is something you only right this way. When you know you're we're gonna follow it up with and you already know what the something else is great so let's get into what the heck happens amber spyglass. I wanna know i need need to know at the end of subtle knife. Lyra is taken great dot com book right. It's not great and will resolves to go after her. So that is that is one plot thread is like what happened to lyra and then we'll going after her lyra <hes> <hes> it turns out that she was taken by mrs coulter who had been working with the church and on behalf of the authority which we're led to believe as god okay okay <hes> which we can talk about in a little bit but mrs coulter is acting a little weird. She just like goes off and does this thing by herself. She doesn't really have any support report. She's in hiding in a cave somewhere. Keeping lyra drugged <hes> keeping her safe. Ooh like okay way keeping her safe in so far as she's keeping mrs colours keeping lyra away from the authority but also also she knows that lyra would not like stand for it oh sure and taken that into into her own hands okay <hes> i think i would describe describe this book as a whole just set everything up as a big mess with some good parts. Okay well. Tell me about the mess. I'll i'll judge for myself. You tell me about art so hard to know where to where to start will will will is looking for lyra. He is aided by light angels. Yeah we're really from who are they. They're just angels okay. Do they have personalities they do but i read this part of the book before i had a baby and that just feels like a long time ago oh great okay sure and they don't they ended up being important but they're not around that much so i just know that will is aided by some angels who are helping him look for lyra. Is this the first time in the series that you've been like oh oh dang. This is like some bible stuff this book okay so as a result of yes to answer your question yes as a result of what lord azriel did did. At the end of the first book where he opened up this rift between universes it has had this really destabilizing effect on other universes great perfect and in a lot of a lot of beings from different universes are coming together like we learned subtle knife that lord azriel has basically assembling an army to fight the authority great and how very what we of what we also are in this in this book is that it in we get it a little bit in subtle knife and then it's made explicit in in spyglass is it's not like great for you personally to exist outside of the universe where you belong just oh sure physical toll on you. If you remember we talked a little bit about will's dad who is who will does find by the end of subtle knife but it doesn't go right yeah. It doesn't and grow great like he he is. He is killed but even before he is killed. He is sick. Leave kind of before his his time he was he was in his prime when he disappeared ten years have passed but it was yeah since he disappeared into what ended up being liars world but those ten years have really weakened him and and aged him a lot because he's just existing in a place where he he doesn't belong okay now he he does. If you remember he does find a damon and that's gonna be important. Insurance okay so the angels are like the first big bible thing but the whole setup dangerous is breaking down. Angels are the first big bible thing but you do get you do get a sense that by trying to create this one big like coalition of peoples from all these different different worlds like lord azriel is maybe doing more harm than good or like. He doesn't quite understand what he's the imperative yeah the impact of what he what he's doing <hes> <hes> so yeah the in in this book you just get a bunch of an angel or part of this. You just get a bunch of stuff thrown at you like the first book site cool yeah damon's cool <music>. I'm on board okay great. There are bears armored bears. They're gonna go arm beca- fancy armored bears and it's great and this book is just like okay. Angel exist. I okay there are these little tiny people who have short lifespans and like poison stilettos that they and they ride dragonflies and like that's just the thing now there are. There's the world of the dead in their harpies in elliott. Just kind of it just keeps throwing stuff at you. So what does will do with the angels. Is that like gets us to little people and gets us to the land of the dead because i didn't know that we went to the way i mean he's. He's looking for lyra. Okay laura linda dead thing income. It's a little bit later. He's looking for lyra and he happens to so the because the world's are unstable and things are kind of breaking down a little bit the the habitat of the armored bears has started to melt a little bit and they are could kinda roaming around trying to look for a place where they can stay because they're big polar bears they needed to it be called yeah they've. They left their home in their looking for other stuff and so will i didn't even remember this being a part of this book until now because again i did read the first part of it before it had a baby and has just wild how far away that seems sure hit me <hes> but will with this knife knife is like going he the the angels are directing him and he's he's going north of trying to find lyra and he happens to meet meet these bears and like he gets in this this standoff with your eric who is trying to who who is just you know to take care of his people overrating overrating villages a little bit like the bears. If you remember don't have any particular love for humans like on an individual level they can form relationships and of course everyone wants to be housed lyra but the bears in humans are not necessarily like natural allies sure sure i'm so the bears are trying to take stuff from this village and will basically like he bluffs his way into he both bluffs and then holds this knife and shows eric that that it can just like cut his armored without even without any effort at all <hes> and it's a combination of like that huts and the fact that has rad knife that makes will and uric become friends okay and is he like hey bear helped me find our mutual friend yeah well. Uric is also looking for lease scores be who had died in the in the previous bouquets for lyra <hes> but yeah they're they're all looking for lyra. They do eventually find her and they so will meets mrs coulter for the first time. Oh yeah so this. This book does a lot of stuff's who kind of reframe reframe mrs coulter so we've we have experienced her to to this point as i almost cartoonish -ly evil character and a lot of that cartoonish nece comes from the golden monkey that is damon that is just absolutely horrifying inaudible. Everything and everybody okay and it's described in such monstrous terms that when this book starts trying to make me sympathize with mrs coulter i'm like are you did you are you sure. Are you good like did you like maybe you didn't need to wait until this third book to give her any redeeming qualities like maybe you shouldn't have made her murder children children before you decided that i needed to be in her corner in some way so length so i found a quote from him about this. Actually i'm glad we're talking about this. <hes> they were asking talking about the movies and how they didn't get to make all of them and what he thought of nicole kidman's performance as mrs coulter <hes> and he was like kinda sad that she we didn't get to make a spyglass movie because he wanted to see her transition into being a more quote unquote. You know someone we could root for. Maybe <hes> and <hes> personality. Did you know that she was going to become good or something and he goes. I love mrs coulter dearly. I always treated her with the greatest wary respect and all of her scenes. She was ghastly really but also wonderful to write about. I'd run a mile from her in real life and then he tells a story about how some moment in this book where like her get her like monkey like rips apart he's like yeah i saw that at a zoo once and it was terrifying okay. That's kind of cool a ah but it but he says like it's morally odd moment because the monkey didn't know it was just like roberta part because it was curious which i don't know if that's exactly what how it's portrayed of the book but it gets your idea of like what of knowledge in like morality being linked. I think i think so is she. Is she in the party. Is she a good guy now. She's that she's not in the party but you do see and this scene with her and will is really essential to reframing her because will looks at her this woman who he's never met before and she is. She's got lyra in this cave. She does seem to be you worried about her or caring for her in some way even though she did kidnap her and she he she did drag her by those those things are bad yes but she does seem to be worried about in some way and wills impression of her is of an adult lyra and salivas thing you might remember <hes> that she was called lyra silver silver tongue in the first book because she is so adept at spinning these lies that help her out and help her friends out like she she she is just a gifted liar and like spinner of yarns sure in a way that is really has always been helpful to her in a pinch <hes> and will sees in this manipulative woman a version of of lyra that has like grown up and you know that thing about how like you you wear a mask and then eventually it just becomes yes. I think it's a version of lyra who's been lying for so long as you kinda for has forgotten how how not to cool okay but then there's this there's this passage that gets the heart of her transition. I guess like such as is and i'm not i'm not saying that i find it super satisfying or or convincing again. I think that pullman was way too lean way too hard into making her awful in the first couple books for me to feel good about rooting for her at all in this book even though i'm clearly supposed to <hes> this is this is her talking. I think to azriel 'cause he. Kidnaps kidnaps her like after liar is rescued by will wright and but then then income the forces of lord azriel. Who's who's trying to find her like the authorities also trying to find her. Everyone's trying to find lyra but what ends up happening is is lyra and will get away. Thanks to the knife and <hes> the mrs coulter is captured azriel and so she's she is trying to explain her actions and it's not even clear whether she's manip- hip being manipulative or being truthful but this this gets to the heart of this transition. I've been the worst mother in the world. I left my only child be taken away from me when she was a tiny infant because i didn't care care about her. I was concerned only with my own advancement. I didn't think of her for years and if i did it was only to regret the embarrassment of her birth but then the church began to take an interest in dustin and children children and something stirred in my heart and i remember that i was a mother and lyra was my child and because there was a threat saved her from it and it talks about ways in which she is done stuff that's been awful but also has been is coming from a place of caring about lyra so that's kind of how the book tries to get you on board with her. Okay well. Maybe i don't know i could envision a world where pullman doesn't want you to feel totally comfortable with her like hanging out in a room early yeah but at least it's a little more complicated than cartoon evil <hes> so as as well as rescuing lyra you have to have a very specific kind of mental balance to slice a window open with his knife and get into another world and while he is trying to do this once i think maybe even in the confrontation with mrs coulter like i said before that they escape thanks to the knife and actually don't think that's true. I think they escape in spite of what happened to the knife okay but he is because mrs coulter is kind of distracted him. He is thinking of his mom at the exact wrong noma and it's like the knife catches on something and breaks <hes> okay and then they meet up with your iq who is as you might remember a master metalworker because there are these big armored bears. God know a lot about metal and yorick orrick is like i i can fix this thing but i gotta tell you. I don't have a great feeling about it. I just don't think i don't think it's there's bad stuff can happen because this knife and i'll fix it because i respect you because i respect lyra and because you seem like you need it to do what you're gonna do but i just it gives me the hebrews do the bears just have hands andrew like hand hand. Gotta have like fingers. Their blacksmiths like how have homes right now does picture featuring a bear putting a big hammer and his mouth is banging on the shields and having a good time over here. So why do they need. They need to fix the knife to do what kill azriel or really need to. They need to be able to switch universes ago casts. I think i think they are looking for azriel would make sense yeah but i'm trying to think what they're like. A big macguffin is oh. Yes rival right at at the beginning of every chapter in the early parts. Lyra is talking to roger o. Her friend her friend who died okay and he is he is somewhere he is in then what ends up being the world of the dead and to get there. They need the knife to be working. <hes> so will is looking will wants to talk to his dad again. Lyra is looking for roger which has been you know. It's a reason she left the college in the first place. It's been her through line this whole time so they cut through a couple couple different things is it's pretty it's pretty interesting like they find this world where like this guy is dead in a field and and then they cut through again and it's this it looks like the exact same world but it really resist them like entering it and it turns out to be kind of this inbetween place where you are right after you die. Whoa okay. It's this guy who was dead in the field is in his house and he's like what will happen to me. I'm dead and eventually you get drawn inexorably toward this this like weird shantytown which is both like a i i guess ellis island for hell yeah sure but also a place where people who aren't dead yet who are trying to get into the land of the dead just just like away yeah like they. Their deaths are little literally personified. Kinda like demon damon's making like talk to their deaths as you get closer to dying. Your death is closer to you and it was just like hanging out this old lady who's going to die and she's in a bed entered. Her death is just like in bed with her and they all like chat this. These books owned bones thursdays zoo parts of the bone on their parts of their big messy messes. Okay okay so we're going to go something they the land of the dead define willesden find roger okay <hes> and so they get to what is essentially essentially the river sticks. There's like a boatman and he's he's like people listen every time i take people here. They're they're like. Don't you know who i am. <hes> i'm gonna get outta here. You know i i'm i'm going to be the one who comes comes back and you can't do this to me and so will and lyra as is living people who are going to go into the world of the dead and art and swear to come back. They don't seem that different from any sure sure sure <hes> but to to go there like lyra needs to be separated from panteleimon her damon oh <hes> and it's this she promised roger and she has to go and has this is this deep a moment of anguish between these two characters that i'm not gonna captured appropriately because my voice sounds the way it does and because i'm kind of rushing a little bit but it's this really like deeply affecting moment where you are with this thing always it's part of you and will is leaving part of himself behind the the there a couple of galvez galvez people. I told you about just like kylo people there a couple of those with them who they they were originally spies for lord azriel but they take up with will and lyra an an bike say that they'll just stick with willem liar to watch over oh lord episode him yeah but they end up becoming friends with them yup yes asher i guess the i guess they don't turn into stone no but they are always there but they they were supposed to spy on you and other your friends and they're cool. Side characters greg right exactly he leaves leaves them behind so she has to leave santillana behind yet but yeah the gal of espionage after leave something behind <hes> we'll have to leave something behind but as as the boatman kinda tells her like you're the only person who knows this part of you who can like put a face on it. Put a personality on it. <hes> everybody's leaving something behind but you have the misfortune to have that be an external thing that you are deeply like tied to and you know oh they are tied to so they go the world of the dead they meet these harpies who lyra tries to tell them a big cool story about why they're there <hes> and the harpies are like you're lying. Stop lying your sock your bad and it helps lyra come to this realization that she's been lying all all this time and then it's just hard for her to tell the truth about stuff 'cause she said kind of a tough life yeah so she'd comes to this agreement with the harpies wear aware like what if instead of watching over the debt and trying to keep them down here you talked to like they will and lyra of come to the conclusion that they want to let people outta here like they've. There's gonna be a way to let people out of the land of the dead because it's just like the stark crappy purgatory kind a place <hes> but the harpies are like the guard the guardians of the of the atlanta debts owed so lyra comes to this agreement with them where what if because you seem to like the truth so much what if people just told you they came through and they told you their life stories wouldn't that get you more energy like be cooler than just like facing off the people's misery all the time. Which is how they've lived today. I guess it's like oh. It's the reverse. It's the monsters inc reverse instead of drawing energy from screaming. We're going to get better energy from laughing at what it is. That's exactly what it is sure so will the the land that stuff is all is all pretty cool the dead people and coming out of the world and they just become dust like they become part of the universe again wou <hes> <hes> that's cool. Mary malone god meets these she is. She okay remember mary malone just about yeah she has. She's he's entered this world and she meets these sentient beings called moola move. We'll f o or something yeah and they are these. It's really it's honestly really hard to into describe them because they're not vertebrates like they don't have a central spinal column there could they're kind of a rain. They they've got more of a diamond deed skeleton why not and they've also also got like elephant trunks but also like these front claws and they take these claws and they put them into these big circular seedpods and they use them like wheel so they're basically like motorcycle elephants yes and she you know she makes friends with them and she like she knows that something about this place and these things and this location like it. It's going to help her understand about dust in a way that she needs to to understand like she was she was told to be the serpent doesn't fully understand what that means. She knows she needs to be looking for will and lyra but she also knows that she needs to stay here and figure something out okay and it turns out like it's it's this whole thing where dust basically fertilizes the trees that these big wheel seedpods that are essential to these things way of life. You've come from okay and they've been those trees have been slowly failing for a period of roughly three hundred years or so and it comes to like you come to find out that hey like three hundred years ago. This subtle knife was invented and some other stuff happened. Oh it's bad news bad like york said i'm so i'm just making such a hopeless mess outta this. I'm going to get better at podcasting again precious like a muscle that i don't know i just wanna know. I wanna get to the part where we like fight. God or something like what is the big okay because this will and lyra make get out of the world of the dead and they are going toward lord azriel and they're trying to find their damon's because will has one now to okay <hes> and he can. I just feel that he has one now because he's been in this world for long enough and lord azriel starring this big old war with god and it's honestly just such a big confusing pointless pointless mass like there's the scene where they like accidentally free the authority who is an angel who is pretending to be god by he was trapped in the crystal thing and they come out the knife and he's so old and insubstantial now that he just kinda dissolves into the wind. Whoa all the angels are made of dust and there's is this other. There's this big angel named metron who is the kind of the big bad but he almost doesn't factor in at all. Okay and lord is real and mrs this coulter like band together and kill him because they both care about lyra so much and there's this there's this guy that the church sends to assassinate lyra named father gomez who you just check in with periodically as he tracks them down and then he just ends up dying anyway and it doesn't matter nothing happens okay. Hey that's how i kind of feel about the the war with the authority in the war with god or whatever it's like a couple chapters it super chaotic. It's not nearly nearly as compelling as the realm of the dead. Lyra will stuff and as over and you get into the epilogue part of the book. Can i just ask a question about lord azriel because i feel like he has been such a background character. Do we get a more of him. In this book aside from vis big fight we get some of that and we get some car that he invented called a <hes> call an intention craft. I think they just it gets a big invisible like airplane car that you'd fly with your mind. I don't care how you feel about the plot of these books but i wanna play table top games in universe what if what if a bunch of world building but it wasn't in the first book the world building all felt kind of gradual inorganic this one. It's like yeah angels her thing now yeah here's a car you can fly their mind. Yeah here's little tinker. Bell's kill you with their salenko's. What what if motorcycle elephants here's here's a big scene where they have part of lila's hair and they're trying to use it to make a bomb that can find her and kill her. No matter what universe she's in and yeah and it's a thing and there's this whole big scene where mrs coulter and another one of the galleons like find it and get get rid of it and just like blow a bunch of stuff up and you read it and you're like what did i just read like what just happened. If it feels like it's supposed was to be the main driving action of the book also feels really peripheral and especially impactful at a gay. Maybe this is just me. It might be you but it might also be. He like what you came to the book for what we have discovered we are liking about the book which is like the fantasy or the the elements that feel more more fantasy book whereas pullman has talked much like a lot about critiques of the church and critiques of religion and all that kind of stuff which seems like it has been less of what you have enjoyed in these books just like functionally from a craft perspective yeah right okay what's ziplock about so we get to the epilogues if you'd chapters this is where the nearly pointless father gomez thing ends up getting resolved where he just dies and on mike rust on the ground and it's useless he's all dead will and lyra chase they are. They're being attacked by these specter. It's part of the big the the chaos of this war with the authority and they grab their demands and they each it's important that they each grab the others damon. Oh oh quickness of the moment 'cause they both they both like feel away about each other yelich teen like that they have yeah they haven't fully explored because they've been in hell l. and like having all kinds of cool adventures and there's not a lot of room for like thinking about your changing bodies. I yeah which seemed like home. Hohmann has talked a lot about that part that element of these books that they are essentially explicit. It's explicit in a way that almost makes me a little bit uncomfortable as okay i. I think if you were a teen reading it you'll be like oh okay sure kind of. I kind of understand was what is going on here but as an adult reading is like ooh. Maybe i don't know i don't know if i ain't to read about a young girl gone into puberty. Okay fair enough seems that seems suspects just like how do you read it yeah i. I hear that okay i don't. I don't think it's it's it's not a we talked in our episode about stephen king's it. There's the scene toward the end of that where that that involves like teens and sex and stuff. There's nothing about this that feels to explicitly gratuitous or male gaze. Even it's just about a couple of kids reaching that cusp of adulthood and their damon's are going to settle down and they are realizing that they have like these feelings inside of them and they they're realizing that they make each other feel away that they've never felt before so that that's a big part of the epilogue and then then comes this the witch serafina picasso who's been a friend of lyra since the first book and then this other angel who comes down and tells them i'm basically it's not good for stuff to live in a universe that doesn't belong to it. Oh you guys can't be together. Oh no so it's it and not only. Can you not be together but the people who made the subtle knife. Were just you know how you crag. Leave the cabinets open. Yes i do when you go get food asleep. The cabinets open like a horrible monster. I do people who invented the subtle knife. Just like left there rifts into another universe open. Oh <music> when you do that you also are leaving a slit of all the universes like open just into the void and dusko escapes out the void loyd ooh and becomes specter's so not only. Are you making specter's when you make these windows but also you know how the the seed pod trees were kind of failing thing in. This dust seem to be important enough something something was wrong with dust. It's because of all these rifts between universes like things have become so so to stabilize and the only the only answer is to close every window except one window can continue to exist but you can't use it to see each other because because it needs to be the window that helps people in the world of the dead escape into the universe and become dust again <hes> so you can never see. I know you just realize is that you love each other very deeply but you can never see each other again. So is that the i i've come to understand that they are like a mini. Adam and eve is the temptation each other but then they don't give in to to reset the world's. Even it's not even about about them giving in well because they don't imagine the book with them being together rainfall the the fall of man is is set up as like there there was one there was a moment there was one thing that happened led to the fall man so i guess they resist temptation insofar insofar as they make the selfless choice to repair. All these europe's in the universe can go back and yeah yeah. That's some of the some of the j. store articles that inclined to read. We're making thank you so much to our listeners who every time we mentioned jay store like hey you guys need p._d._f.'s. I do love it and it's like open up your trenchcoat with all these jay store p._d._f.'s they they are making comparisons between like knowing that liar is supposed to be some. I'm sort of second eve and like what is what does it mean for mary moloney to play the snake and like bringing them together but then i guess they have to be a par or and like referring to it as almost like a reverse fall of man because i don't think pullman thinks that knowledge is a bad thing. He actually thinks it's a very good thing right so let's let's actually talk about that. Real fast is because something we've talked about. Both of our previous episodes is that dust is it is both defined and not it. Is you know what what dust is hinted at that but it's never made explicit like we we've seen scenes where people can see dust like surrounding and i don't know they were in like a museum around. When man became like quote unquote civilized or self aware like that's when dust started to become a thing <hes> this is this is mary's internal monologue. I think a dust came into being when living things became conscious of themselves but needed some feedback system to reinforce it and make it safe safe as the moolah had their wheels and the oil from the trees without something like that it would vanish thought imagination feeling all wither and blow away leaving nothing but a brutish automatism mechanism and that brief period when life was conscious of itself would flicker out like a candle and everyone of the billions of worlds where it had burned brightly so does both it's both autho self awareness but also like an ability to shape the world around you almost like it is it is a balance. It is both conscious an unconsciousness. It sounds like but yeah like it's this you could view you view this thing with the moolah and their wheels. It's like as unnatural because they weren't born with these wheels. They don't get these wheels until they become adults sure but the wheels also are integral to their your way of life and they're like civilization <hes> but that comes from them like learning how to get them yeah use them yeah yeah yeah which suit which again to me is like it's knowledge vis-a-vis the garden of eden is a bad thing knowledge about the world and your ability to change it here. Here is a good thing except if you use it to tear down. All the walls between the world's dust is only a name for what happens when matter begins to understand itself matter loves matter it seeks to know more about itself and dust is formed now. The first angel's condensed out of dust in the authority was the first of all <hes> he told those who came after him that he created them but it was ally. One of those came later was wiser than he was and she found out the truth so he banished her. We serve her still. This is a botham owes. One of the angels who meets will okay talking about basically the lucifer thing yeah sure but yeah but but in the context of the authority being not actually god just being some angel who set himself up all the other angels <hes> and so like christianity is ally dust as great the end. That's that's mostly the book. I enjoyed this one better than subtle knife because it has where the subtle knife started stuff. This actually finishes it. I like i said i think the the war with god feels almost answer larry to the rest of it and a lot of the a lot of the the world building feels cool but also out of nowhere <hes> like here's just a thing over here in their their tiniest sessions who ride dragonflies just throw this fine yeah i can think of stories where that works for me like that has ever happened in his usually in a slimmer slimmer more contained story. I think i would have to be i would have to read the first one again and i also would have to just be a different person. Now maybe to better articulate why i thought it felt good in the first book book. It felt like capriciousness assistnace. That's fair it well. It's interesting because and this'll take us. I was struck when you were talking about will meeting coulter and yorick that we were like circling back on characters from the first story with a new perspective by like bumping liar over to the side a little bit. We get to meet all the important people again in some additional context and that seems like a cool thing to do with your third book when you are spending that third book also throwing a bunch of new stuff at the reader that i it sounds like that is what you were like. I have these other people that are around these new characters now. It's maybe maybe it's like when they put they focus tested the book and added a whole bunch of new characters because the the the youth liked it network television jobs just to the pucci of are folks who are listening can let us know what they think about the amber spyglass real quick andrew. What is the amber spyglass. I didn't actually learn oh yeah. It's because it's not that interesting resist. Mary malone builds a spyglass out of resin. Would she makes she makes these thin sheets of resin that she can look through and she discovers that if she puts two of these sheets at the opposite ends of a tube she can see dust cool okay and she can diagnose what the problem is with these trees and what's happening with us. That seems important to it's so you don't hit it until halfway into the book and then it never really comes up again so the knife seems like the most important of the three the compass and the knife are both way more important as objects than the spyglass grace also like way more cool versatile sure like you've got a compass that can tell you anything you want. You got a knife that can let you into any universe and then you've got these two pieces of amber at the the ends of a toilet paper to that let you see dust. One of these things is not like the other.

Detroit Area COVID-19 Updates Plus Tips To Get Through This Mentally w/ Dr. Joel Young

"Daily Detroit is brought to you by the community support our work at Patriot dot com slash daily Detroit. I'm Jerry stays. Welcome to your daily Detroit. A special weekend edition recorded Sunday March. Twenty second twenty twenty. We're going seven days a week. During the cove in nineteen crisis with the idea of everyday giving you a fact based guidepost of where we stand a heads up on what could be coming in the ideas out there. Stories of people persevering through and of course tips to help you get through on today's show of a series of top line updates on the local Kovic nineteen crisis and the shifting situation on the ground in the state and region. Plus seven. Guston has a conversation with psychiatrist. Dr Joel Young with some tips to help. Make it through all this. Let's get started. The confirmed cove in nineteen case. Number in Michigan has risen to one thousand. Thirty five with eight fatalities. This is according to the state's official total released a short time before recording this. Show the situation in the city of Detroit is worsening with three hundred twenty five confirmed cases and half the states fatalities happening in the motor city. Oakland County is up to two hundred. Seventy seven cases there county executive is issuing new orders. And we'll have more on that in a bit one hundred and fifty two cases are in the rest of Wayne County that is not Detroit and one hundred and forty in mccomb. There's also an executive order from the governor since we last spoke the took effect today as we mentioned yesterday. It shutters tanning salons tattoo parlors barbers salons and other personal care services through April thirteenth. But one thing we did not know and should have for clarity. It also extends the shutdowns of bars and restaurants except for carry out and pick up for the same period of time in Oakland. County County executive. David Coulter has a pair of executive orders. They close all shopping malls playground equipment and require all childcare centers to develop an implement a daily screening protocol for children staff parents and visitors to reduce the transmission of the corona virus. He also encouraged people to limit their travel to only essential activities and urged dental and other medical facilities not an operation now to donate personal protection equipment to hospitals and those dealing with this on the front line in the press advisory. Coulter also said that additional steps are under consideration embattled Warren based furniture chain art van laid off and ended benefits including health insurance late Friday. The company says with liquidation sales ending due to the shutdown. There's no money coming in to pay for operations going on the Warren. Filing about seven hundred twenty employees are impacted. They had been expecting get paid and with benefits through may fifth. This is also sooner than the warn act. Filing outlined a crew remains to wind down the sixty one year old business statewide more than eighty thousand people filed for unemployment benefits just last week up in the state legislature Republican Speaker of the House. Lee Chatfield has sent a list of ideas to Democratic Governor Gretchen. Whitmer for executive orders for the crisis. And it's an interesting list to say the least. This is incomplete but it includes such items as allowing Canadian doctors to practice in the state letting people work part time. We'll collecting unemployment benefits extending unemployment benefits to independent contractors a suspension of fees for hunting and fishing licenses allowing restaurants and bars to sell alcohol for takeout during their temporary closure and to extend the moratorium on tax foreclosures past the May twenty-ninth deadline previously ordered. That seems like an interesting one from that side of the aisle thoughts. Are these good ideas bad ones? I have been fascinated. As people's political positions have changed throughout this crisis in things develop email US daily Detroit at g mail dot com now handed over to my colleague. Spin Guston Dr Young. Welcome to daily Detroit. Just out of curiosity You know were here. Watching schools be closed you know. Bars and restaurants ordered shut down and everything is the Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine. Are you guys still accepting patients? Or how are you handling all this? Yeah well thanks for having me. This is really a critical time in Obviously than usual time in every aspect of American life. I run the psychiatrist. I run the Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine. Which is in bartender hills and we are about Seventy plus a therapist and staff We've been around for about thirty years and take care of a lot of people with mental health neutrally from three to one hundred and three now and Did I just recently. With this. Impending Colonel Virus threat that is spreading throughout the region the area of the country the world and actually late last week. We we became almost entirely virtual. So they had all of our patients are now being seeing through zoom and most of our therapists are now seeing their patience remotely from their homes. So this was an overnight essentially an overnight transformation from our practice just trying to keep everybody staff and our patients healthy and safe. I can imagine that brings plenty of its own challenges there as well as you know a lot of lot of your patients probably don't know how to use zoom and so forth right well it's interesting Before the corona virus emerged the movement. Ahead been towards telehealth. So we the Rochester. Center has have been piloting this for about six months so when this threat really became evident we were prepared. And although not all of our psychiatrists and therapists or equipped. We we had enough of critical mass. Where one was able to teach the other yeah and Consequently we In a rather orderly but quick manner. We taught each other how to do it. And now we're in the process of teaching our patients having said that for our patients who are older or may not have a Wifi we are. We will see them on the telephone or we'll talk with him on the telephone and it's not as good as seeing them and we're we're aspiring to one hundred zoom but We Really WanNa make contact with our patients. We feel like this is a time of high stress. Need Your And and we really WANNA contact with them so speaking of high stress needs My wife got a call yesterday. Just quick personal story but to your point my wife got a call from our neighbor. A FRIEND OF OURS. Our children our friends and she told my wife. I can't stop crying. I'm just so freaked out by all this. And she went on to say that she didn't feel comfortable letting our children play together For the time being clearly this is as you said. I think earlier uncharted territory. And it's got to be rattling people pretty severely like what are you seeing? What are people telling your your staff? You know it's interesting because They're not that many external crisis they add. Come into our doors. It's quite remarkable even when there's Political strife for congressional hearings. We rarely hear that in the exam. Real people are there because of their pre existing issues. Their depression their anxiety. They're adhd other bipolar disorder or their marriage or their own personal issues but in my career now close to thirty years. It hasn't always been surprising enough that people bring external issues and some nine eleven was one of them but this might be another episode where external conditions are significantly affecting why people are coming to us Because we're all trying to figure out our new world order this whole idea that even our kids probably can play with each other. Which is just devastating. Because everyone's becoming more isolated and we're making these moment to moment transition so people are on top of their pre existing issues. Things I depression are now faced with changes. So what kinds of things are you? Recommending to people as as far as coping mechanisms like what can people do to kind of stay above the fray? And and calm here. Well these are Difficult issues a lot of people to be aware and we want people take tied in to what the public health professionals are telling us. I think we're getting some really good information and Cnn and the cable. Networks are biologically on only quality people and so on one aspect. I want people to be informed and understand developing risks of that. They can make good decisions on the other hand. Too much of this is very anxiety provoking so we are suggesting that People spend thirty minutes or so maybe two times a day getting updates but it's causing you anxiety or tension that limits that they at the same time we don't want people put their head in the sand and dots listen to what the public health officials are telling us. So I think that's first and foremost knowledge but not overdoing it. Don't go but I think some other things. How are important? Obviously I'm primarily concerned about my patients who pre existing conditions and Mental Health Conditions. People with anxiety. Depression bipolar disorder schizophrenia. And I really want everyone to take treatment Fundamental treatment so as to be able to handle this new stress. Well so one thing we're doing is a clinic staying open and making sure that people get their counseling but medications if necessary for those people who don't have pre existing Saudi and depression. You know I think good. Standard practices include a good hygiene Trying to eat as as good as possible. It's easy to just eat. Starches and and foods is so That might be the best you can do at this point but trying and healthy and proteins and vegetables that you can gain access to them Exercise is good. You know families are probably not congregating with other families which makes it very hard on parents who have young children underscores how credibly difficult it is to take care of children. Yes and how exhausting it and so as much as we can. Spouses can help one another. So it doesn't fall two to one person but it is truly incredible lead taxing experience and of course it gives us all some respect for teachers and kindergarten teachers in elementary school teachers. Who are doing this on a daily basis but even they have more than one person to get them through the day so if you can divide it among safe appearance. And that's that's the best way to proceed so staying on the parents and Children Angle Any tips for parents to you. Know for ways to talk with their children about this to help them understand it to keep them feeling safe and also keep them active and positive. There are some videos. I don't have the link to them but I they are available. There are twenty seconds of three minute discussions for children about this. I think Depending on the child and their sophistication WanNa be positive and I think we want to keep them away from doom and gloom and catastrophe is noticed and I think by socially isolating ourselves if we teach our children That there is a virus. We have to be careful but they gonNA save. We are reinforced by the comfort that although some members of our society particularly those who are older and have some underlying medical owners are vulnerable. Fortunately children young adults An adolescent seem to be better protected. We still want to keep them. Isolated and and not Interacting with their more vulnerable grandparents are sick relatives. But I think it's good to You know tell our children that things will be good that authorities are making good decisions giving us good information and we will emerge despite the fact. That looks different right now. All right Dr Joel. Young Medical Director and founder of Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine. Thanks so much for talking with us on daily Detroit pleasure. Good luck to everyone out there. All right we're wrapping up for today. Looks like we're getting a couple of inches of snow tonight.

Hour 2 Cuomo and his old age home virus issue

"The New York Mark Simone on W.. Loves to get to this hour. you know the biggest problem we face right now is not having any normal news media work. You've got totally corrupted. news me. The New York Times totally corrupt Washington Post totally corrupted NBC ABC CBS. Totally corrupt. just slanted biased so bad at the New York? TIMES, even an editor quit yesterday and said I just can't take this bias which is out of control. The FAO CI story is a perfect example. he's not America's leading. Infectious disease experts. If we were, we'd be in real trouble. He's a bureaucrat who run a bureau there for thirty seven years. He's a a real bureaucrat He's been wrong a lot a lot and at the most critical time when we really needed him January February into March, totally wrong, gave the president the world's worst advice. It gave me the world's worst advice. If you remember in February I was saying this is nothing that's going to be like the flu. This is nothing. Don't worry. I was getting that from him. The president was getting that from him. So when you see the coverage of all of this, they defend vouch e if you can never point out his faults never. And he he's also spent many many years. He and his public relations arm. buttering up every journalist and he calls everybody all the time. He's on the phone with Governor Cuomo. He's on the phone with the CNN anchors, and the MSNBC anchors very busy, buttering Lester Holt, and all these people and he came up with that the nation's leading infectious disease expert in the all. Yell and scream that every time you. Question anything's ever said. But if there were real media coverage. You've got some very serious respected public officials come out and said out. She was given us the wrong advice. All along Peter Navarro wrote. and it was a very thoughtful piece. In the wall. Street Journal yesterday said. Every time I've interacted with. He's giving me the wrong advice. He's been wrong on everything if you had a legitimate media here. They would actually investigate this. Yesterday put it up on the web page. It's still there if you want to go, see it. It's a list of all the things he got wrong Jr, and this is what we really needed January February all it. Till the end of January telling everybody corona virus is not going to come here. It won't come here. Don't need to worry about it all through February. He's telling everybody. You don't need to do anything. There's no reason to change anything no reason to modify behavior, no reason to do anything. In March first week second weeks, telling first week of March, he's telling people go to the movies tells people take a cruise. It's safe second week of March. Don't wear a mask third week of March. You don't need a mask. Don't wear masks, not going to help you. I mean this is insane. looking back on it. This is the advice. He was giving the president. So if you remember the president, saying well, this is, this'll blow away. This is just like the fluids nothing where he was getting from Faucher, the president at towards the end of March, realized actually, it was more A. Second Week of April just realized. Cheese is always wrong. Stop talking to them, but if you had legitimate news media, if CBS NBC or ABC were legitimate, they would have said Major officials are saying that she's been wrong, and let's take a look at it. Let's go over. The facts would have done this Look what I put up on yesterday on the webpage, and here's a list of all the wrong predictions. Here's video of him saying all the wrong things. They should have been doing that. That should have been on the news. They should've have. They're so friendly with faculty. They should have said. Why did you tell people to take a cruise in March? Why did you tell people go to the movies? Why did you keep saying? At the end of January. It's not gonNA come. There's nothing to worry about. Nobody ever asked me gets a complete pass on it. Deborah burks. If you have to listen to somebody, listen to her, and there's a couple of who've been very accurate and filled with a facts, incorrect predictions, not foudy been wrong at a most crucial times dead wrong, but it doesn't matter to fake news. If you've got something bad to say about, president trump, you are right there. In the Sunday shows. You can be on Good Morning America with with George Stephanopoulos. Stick this Mary trump. WHO's a little bit of a Wack job? Who I think he's met Donald Trump a total of thirty seconds in her lifetime. She came out with the book. they to promote the book. Let out the five startling revelations one of them. Was the Donald Trump paid this guy to take. His sat test for him, so he could get into wharton. And that's how he got into warden. Well the guys he's the guy's dead why she picked this guy because he's dead and can't talk, but his widow pointed out that the guy never met Donald trump until after he was in warden so the whole story false It got totally deep bunker. Biggest revelation turned out to be alive I'll give Stephanopoulos credit. He brought it up this morning and aster about it on Good Morning American told us by people in my family. I am absolutely. Confident that it's true. I'm happy to finally to be able to speak about. It I also know that it was not the Joe Shapiro. People have been focusing on. Joe Shapiro's thick that she said it was, and that's the guy that knew donald trump so apparently some other Joseph pair that the didn't and again she points out. She has no direct knowledge of this. She's been told this. And she's happy to speak of. Yes. She sounds just ecstatic, doesn't she? Can you prove? Can I prove now because I I'm. Counting on. People I trust to told me the story so in terms of documentation now I can't prove it, but I can. Certainly Say, with one hundred percents certainty. that. I was told the story by a source very close at all. Well, that's good enough for me. She has no proof no documentation, but she was told this by a source close to the. It's probably Michael Cohen somebody so. There's no now listen. Every two seconds is another book about Donald Trump all through his life, and especially during the campaign, and especially after he got elected, you had all these Michael Wolf professional investigative reporter gossip columnist types spent a year working on a book about Donald Trump. Even the great journalist Bob Woodward met a year working investigating every inch of Donald Trump's entire life, they would like dozens of these books. Not One of them ever came across sat story now. The greatest investigative journalist never came across it, but this this wack job the found out. She makes some good points here, utterly incapable. Of leading this country. and. It's dangerous to allow him to do so based on. Stephanopoulos now normal person said wait a minute. He's been leading the country for four years. Everything's been fine. In fact, the economy set all kinds of records dangerous. How was it dangerous? Calm Down North Korea. We've had less war in the world less fighting in the world than any other administrative was so dangerous, but of course it's stephanopolous, not going to bring that up ed. You hear Ruth Bader Ginsburg was. Back in the hospital yesterday, they said it's nothing. It's nothing to worry about nothing to worry about. How many people do you know they're in the hospital every two months every time you turn around. She's in the hospital. I mean she's much change address with the post office every second. She's back in the hospital and you're supposed to pretend There's nothing wrong here. That's the problem with these these crazy Democrats. It's they don't care what your medical issue is. Look at Joe Biden Dementia. Bumping into walls doesn't know where he is. This one's in the hospital every two seconds, but they keep. It's like the weekend with Bernie's party. Everything's fine. Just don't don't don't worry about it. They're fine so well. We wish good luck. We hope she gets out of the hospital because we know she'll be back in in the month, but we hope she's well hey. CORONA, virus. Everybody. thinks themselves. If only we had the vaccine, we can't go back to normal till we get the vaccine you hear some reports that whether a couple of look pretty good. The Pfizer one looks pretty good Couple of companies look pretty good. They've already started injecting human beings with this vaccine. To see how it works now the problem is you gotTa. Make sure. A lot of these vaccines are not one hundred percent. It's like when you get that flu shot. It's more like sixty percent sixty five percent effective, and then you got to see. How long has it affected for? Is it lasts for two weeks to months to years? You don't know. And then you got to see are their side effects. the problem is when you want to really test for side effects, you generally have to give it to a lot of people and watching them for a year to see if there's side effects, so if a vaccine comes out, let's say in November and it's ready to go, and they make a hundred million doses of it. Are you gonNA, take it. You don't know it hasn't really been tested for side effects. You can take a few months or two months and look at it. You really need more time than that. So smart doctors say well I give it. To patients who were really at risk who are very vulnerable. I would give it to them because they need the protection and it's worth. The risk of the side effects against side effects could be minor But that vaccine comes out. I. Don't know that everybody will rush to take it so. I mean best cast for most people is the fall, and there's never been anything like this in history, usually vaccine can take a couple of years to develop to test to make, but a lot of people think the fall. Have it here so we'll see the good news is before you get that vaccine. What they call the therapeutics the drugs they can give you. Should you come down with the virus are getting better and better, and there's more and more of them so when you get a case. He'll be much milder. You'll get through it fine, you know. The keep trying to scare you. What these numbers! The spikes in the number of cases but nobody's pointing out. There's another thing with the media. They don't like to point out to you. The death rate is plunging because whoever gets it. The drugs are better now the age of the people getting it as younger so the death rate is just getting lower and lower and lower all the time Hey, there was some great news last night Jeff Sessions. Talk about a worm e weasel that Jeff sessions got. got defeated last night. He's out. He was going to run for the Senate. Get his old Senate seat back. He had the primary yesterday president trump and others went down there and campaign like crazy against sessions campaign for the opponent and the opponent. One sessions will not. Get elected. He's out will not get his Senate seat back He looks like a nice guy, but he's got that That big brother on his record, he caused the Muller Investigation. He recused himself in the dumbest stupidest decision. Ever allowed Rod. Rosenstein pick muller a just a mess. Muller put in a team of the biggest trump derangement syndrome, vicious, ruthless prosecutors. They knew in the second week there was no Russian collusion. They went ahead anyway. They found nothing couldn't find. Anything started terrorizing. General Flynn, Roger Stone George Popadopoulos anybody that could lock them up on process. Crimes manafort although metaphor. It was actually guilty of all that stuff, but it was from twenty years ago. They had nothing to do with with trump. To the whole thing was a colossal waste of time and money, and it was all sessions fault and thank God He got defeated last night. And that's the end of him. Hopefully won't hear from him again. Let him go. Be a lobbyist or something like that. So A. Couple of things when you get back to normal. You're never gonNA. Get a I mean there's always a. Yeah I know the caught the normal, but at some point and the worst case scenario. It's a year from now at some point, the virus just goes away. It always happens whether it's swine flu, or what at some point, it just goes away, even the worst one ever nineteen, eighteen, nineteen, nineteen that horrible pandemic. It took about. I hate to say. Say Year and a half two years, but it just went away, and that was the end of it, so that'll happen. Everything will get back to normal. There'll be a couple of changes that look like they're going to become permanent fashion. Wise people are not going to dress up like they used to dress up all through the last three or four months. Months Nobody's in a suit and tie. Nobody's dressing up. Everybody's in casual, stretching soft, comfortable clothes and shoes well. It looks like that's going to stay. That's going to be permanent will change the fashion world also concerts will come back, but I think it's the end of the movie theater I know they're trying to come back, but people got so used to. To watching stuff at home, so used to streaming that that's the end. There'll be no more movies. There's no reason for it anymore. In the movie theaters, they kept getting the screens smaller and smaller that can put more screens into one building, so he got a smaller screen. Your TV sets at home got bigger and bigger and bigger and much higher quality. Five D Four K. twelve this nine that so. Why go to movie theater, you can get better quality on the home screen. It's more comfortable. It's easier. Streaming is the future Everybody's GonNa be streaming. NBC's unveiling their streaming system. It's called peacock. Peacock. Streaming Service Disney streaming now. That's the only problem if you WanNa Watch a movie. If. You think something you WanNa see you got to begin the hunt to find out which streaming services netflix Hulu is an Amazon somebody needs to put a TV guide of this stuff, so you can instantly figure out where it streaming and how to find it Netflix's now. This is how bad people are getting Netflix's amazing. From the beginning of this, you turn to net flicks. You create your playlist. You searched for what you wanted to look at well. People have been doing this. This so much netflix's now announced a new feature. They found out that many people are too lazy to actually search for anything in other words. When you go to net, what do I want to see action comedy roam the too lazy to even do that. Let's say a find a TV show you love you. GotTa pick what season? What episode? Most people now too lazy, so Netflix is introducing the shuffle button where that lazy just hits Shuffle. You'll find something for you. Look through. Everything you've ever looked at how long you looked at it? How high you turn the volume on all. The Algorithm will figure it out, so you just hit the shuffle button. It'll find what you want or what they think you want. It will find a TV show you'll like. And for that TV show, it'll pick the season you might. It'll pick the episode you'd like so that is the ultimate laziness. You remember You know you had a remote control. You sit there and play with their mode too lazy and I got to push a button ads too much work, so then every TV now voice. You can just yell at the TV what you want. Want, anyway we'll take some calls in a minute. Eight, hundred three to one, zero, seven, ten is a number eight hundred three to one zero seven ten. Hey, check out the web pages. Some great stuff up. There Andrew Cuomo has gone nuts with these briefings. Memory canceled the briefings now. He brought them back in a whole new format. It's highly charged totally politicized briefings. Partisan tax crystal even CNN is going after him now hard to believe, but watch this. Jake Tapper and others on CNN yesterday, going after governor, Cuomo just viscerally over his corona virus scandals. Also, watch this. It's Seinfeld the corona virus episode. We also take a look this. They tried to create this false narrative that the president's Rona virus response was bad, but watch this debunking of it. It's amazing. It's Dan Crenshaw. This is going to be president brilliant, but take a look at that. It's all up in the web page. Seven Ten W. O. R. DOT COM SLASH Mark Seven Ten W. O.. R., DOT COM slash mark. This is the mark. Simone Show Voice of New York seven ten W. Hey let's take some calls. Eight hundred three to one, zero, seven ten is the number. Let's go to Jimmy and Long Island Jimmy how you doing? I'm doing great mark and I was not surprised to see in today's post that due to all the enlightened protests, we had all across Long Island. That gun sales in Long Island have more than doubled over for. Same period last year. Could that be because people? Oh, yeah, no. Yeah yeah, no, it's not just a long island. The whole country gun sales are through the roof, even in the most liberal places whether it's Seattle or New York City every where you go. Gun sales are way up. You talk to people that never in their life ever thought of having a gun. All want guns now they realize that with these crazy insane left wing, nutjob, mayors and governors they may not be protected this defunding the police or order the police, not to do anything or pulling them out of certain neighborhoods. People want guns right now. Now as I mentioned before these nutjob Democrats are are backtracking now. See Puppet Masters. The people who really control the Party have realized this was a huge miscalculation and could completely destroy any hope. They haven't November, so they're telling these mayors to start doing something. Get rid of the crime. Start fixing things, but most of these left wing nut jobs only know how to break things. They don't know how to fix things. Let's go to Tom in Manhattan. Hey, how you doing Tom. Yeah Mark. I was wondering what you think about the New Sopranos movie coming out. Will it ever be released because I? Don't you know political environment riots now? Racial tension my well. Nah that's a good good point, Tom. Thanks for calling. Yeah, the New Sopranos movie goes back to nineteen sixty seven. The Newark riots lot of black and white stuff. And now you remember the original Soprano series which people still watch. You'd be arrested if you put a show like that on. Remember all the racist stuff. That Tony would say these other guys remember metal had a black boyfriend. Remember the things Tony said or the gay stuff. You remember veto. They found out he was gay and they hold a meeting. Susan was confirmed he was gay. They decided he must be killed. This is a disgrace. You couldn't put this on TV today, so the movie that's been in the works for the last year takes place in the sixties in Newark. You can imagine it's even more racist stuff, so I don't know what they're gonNA do they might be frantically reediting it or They might just put it on hold for a year and see how the climate is i. don't know what I I mean I don't know what's in the movie, but. A real problem, let's go to Let's go to Vincent in Brooklyn Vincent. How you doing? My first off I'd like to give a shout out to W Y, seven ten for because at the top of every hour day, mentioned the march and support of the police that I called in about the other day from cabinet. City all they also mentioned. Back in Crown Heights to people protested against de Blasio in Harlem they're protesting against the Blah's yell, and another point I'd like to bring up is just ridiculous Andrew Cuomo with these press conferences trying to equate President Donald Trump our great presidents with President Nixon. Nixon didn't kill anybody well. I'd like to propose a new nickname for Andrew. Cuomo them. How about twelve k? Covert Cuomo because he killed about twelve thousand people in the nursing homes, he donald trump didn't kill anybody. If Anything Donald trump save hundreds of thousands of lives would supply the ventilators, the mess, and all the hospital ship the Javits Center. No, but no twelve K Cuomo. He sent the people into the nursing home. How ridiculous is he on CNN, doing his charade and everything trying to say well slope is worsted presidency. Mix It. Give me a break. We'll get a live. Go. Get Agri Hutzel Vincent. Thanks for Calling Yeah I. Don't know why he started up again. Cuomo is extremely vulnerable on the nursing home. Scandal that was the single most disastrous deadly decision. Anybody made macaroni virus. If you talk about response to Corona, virus single worst incident was cuomo ordering the nursing homes to take in all the corona virus patients. It ended up infecting all the nursing twelve thousand dead. That's why New York's death numbers are out of control when he talks about the mountain and the numbers and look at the facts, look at the facts, New York had the highest death rate in the world per. Per capita I think it was the sixth highest death rate of natural numbers of anybody in the world, but per capita highest death rate on earth. It's because of Cuomo nursing home decision. I don't know why he turned those briefings into partisan attacks on the president, because the president in that briefing yesterday responded at great length, and went into great detail about that nursing stuff and said I got him the Javits Center. We had three thousand beds there why unease that for the seniors? Why didn't use the hospital ship Comfort? Why did he send them into the nursing homes? So the more CUOMO brings that up? The, more it's GonNa push for a federal investigation in a full report documenting that he made the dumbest most dangerous deadly decision of anybody in the corona virus. Scandal Hey when we come back and culture will be with us. You read the book. Keep talking about that book demonic. She wrote in a few years ago, but it's about the mob psychology you get rioting mobs, and how they get out of control, and how certain leaders can push. It's really interesting stuff. So how do you? How do you contain the mob? How do you stop all this well? We'll get all of that. Coming up on seven ten W. O. R.. Let's get the latest news. Here's listen to what you missed whenever you want. As Mark Simone on demand can't use PODCASTS at seven ten W. O. R. Dot com slash mark. Mark Simone on seven ten W. Well Ann Coulter course, the bestselling author and great columnists you can.

Make sure you follow her on twitter to Anne Coulter. How're you doing? Fine, thanks, you know recalling newsom warden, newsom thinking it's warden Cuomo. Now the state is just shutting down. If I wanted to come back, I couldn't It's crazy and he killed more people than than any other state Wait a minute I. Think Governor. CUOMO's record will stand. He killed twelve thousand. Thirty, four thousand, and yet the media has the audacity to talk about Texas and Florida with a few thousand Dad's. Isn't that funny. What a Texas and Florida have in common. Republican governors yeah, Can you imagine if a Republican governor ordered nursing homes to take her own virus patients and killed twelve thousand senior citizens to coverage you'd be. This is what I always tell people. If you're independent if you're even if you're in Democrat, if all want is is good, government and and clean. Clean Office holders government elected officials. Who will be held accountable? You have to vote Republican. Republicans will be held accountable for things they don't do. Absolutely, no check on Democrat they can do things like this. And probably half the people listening right now. We're worshiping Cuomo dreaming about him at night, thinking about those meatballs as mother used to make. And how a belly is! When he was interviewed by Chris Cuomo the media. Just they have so much power I mean it's stunning. Looking at the poll numbers for Cuomo, they're actually quite high when he is without question, the worst government's official in dealing with the corona virus crisis than any other government official. Now, what about I I think I'm starting to sense the Blasi and all these left wing nut jobs have realized they miscalculated this defunding police or the police not to do anything. Get rid of the Anti Crime Unit crime is out of control in New York I. They're all trying to suddenly backtrack. You think they have any chance of fixing this. I did not know they're starting to backtrack. This is liberals can't learn how. Did you say once, even germs learn they mutate. Yes poking amoebae. Move Away from you. Well. I guess that was my question. A. De Blasios saying we've got to fix this, but they only know how to break things. They don't know how to fix anything like when they got rid of the Anti Crime Unit. You have to pull you. Be a police expert to know that sounds like something. You did an anti crime unit. And wait till they send the first social worker and I I mean I hope you're right. I'm not such a a partisan that I want things to get worse just to make Democrats look bad I'd like I'd like New Yorkers to stay alive. I'd like it to be a safe place again. and I'm still lobbying heavily for Some sort of pro lawn order mayor to run I. Really think after this, no matter what. Does this point we could definitely get a new? A New Giuliani type in New Yorkers can't be fooled anymore. They know they know new. York City is capable of being the most wonderful city in the world. If we just have safety and there isn't safety now. Hey I. Notice a lot of leaders now in the community now saying, wait a minute. He's changing the street names. These painting things on the street knocking down. I've heard them start to say this isn't actually doing anything. This doesn't accomplish any real change. It's. Embarrassing with the murder rate going through the roof and he's out in front of trump tower, caning black lives matter on the street. with with government employees who are getting paid I'm not complaining about them. They look like strong man. I felt very sorry for them. Being forced into this in this job, but it's not like you're creating job they're. They're getting paid There's lots of. There's lots of stuff for for St. I guess is the Transportation Department that was doing painting this down. You're you're accomplishing absolutely nothing except shutting down traffic, and urinating people as the crime rate goes through the roof it. It's it's. It's like a Tom, Wolfe parody. But on the other hand. If this works, this'll be great, we. How do we fix the education system? Yes and I also like all of the teachers not all the teachers. The teachers probably want to go back, but the union officials, the teachers unions, and the layers layers of supervisors thing. No, it's not safe. Trust the science when. You and I'm sure your listeners now. Now there's there's really virtually no risk to two children most teachers well. They retire If they're getting toward retirement age retire early again. They're being paid anyway. If they seriously have have co morbidity is okay. Maybe they shouldn't show up or maybe they should show up and wear masks, but of all things that should be shut down. Schools are the absolute last thing but again teachers are getting paid and and and they as I. Say more the educators. That's what I love. Love when people call themselves, not teachers, but educators what that means is, they're not teachers. They never see students there own way and layers of useless bureaucrats teachers. We like educators know we can. Those we can do without there. Being paid anyway the yeah, this is the way it's curious to me. How all the people most enthusiastic about the lockdowns are the ones who are doing just fine the very rich the wall. Street types who can work at home and oh my gosh. T television host. The life couldn't be better. They're they're. Taking millions of dollars a year while creating this panic, totally overblown panic yes, Corona virus very bad screw the Chinese We should cut off all ties and make our own stuff and stop importing all these. Laden toys from China. To mention their their their viruses from the wet market, people died sooner than they should have. All of that is very bad, but. But this total lockdown, no notice notice who's pushing it. It's people who are doing fine in fact quite a bit better. Phone actually with the Saint Louis couple. Trent mob through the gates is on their property. Trespass guy stands out there with a gun defending his home When did you not have a right to defend your own home with a gun? Isn't that what a gun is worth? Pretty, frightening that that the police have common not a and not only are charging that couple, but taking their guns away. Wow Wow that is really terrifying. I I mean. What can I say move to a concealed carry state? There are a lot of states that are very very generous with their gun. Policy's very generous with the Castle Doctrine in Florida. It includes cars that includes any place on your property and. An impact Florida was the first state to pass concealed aggressive concealed, carry laws, and liberals were hysterical, saying Oh people are GonNa, get shot in in in road, rage incidents, and and husband will get mad at his wife and children. Of course, none of that ever happened. What happened was crime went wind down. Look at the blasios shootings up six hundred percent. Then that's fine. Nobody says a word shootings all over New York great now. Nobody says a word, but. I can't take these liberal seriously pretending to care about gun violence when their main policy WANNA pandemic kids. A release the criminals. Well NEUKOLLN comes out tonight go to Ann Coulter. Dot Com. You can follow me on twitter. Lots of tweeting all day long. Ann Coulter on twitter and get her books and Ann Coulter. US. Talking Mark Simone all right, take care. On the web page a lot of good stuff up there, so governor Cuomo brought back the briefings, but it's a whole new kind of breathing now it's totally politicized real partisan stuff so even. CNN went after him yesterday. Even CNN attacked Andrew Cuomo for these crazy briefings and his corona virus scandals. Watch this.

Many people are authority figures or women with guns women with guns women with fucking hand. Hand cannons elevators elevator shafts. Yeah Window seals Sills Sills. I sometimes feel like a mid Westerner Center when I say sills mispronouncing it on your wolf still on your roof doggy. All right this is already gone away. The Room yes but yeah I. There are a lot of cool things. I was excited to see this episode and also very excited that we are where we are at the end of it This is. There's so many possibilities happening here again. Only read the first book. But you know as watching this with My husband Aron and he he was asking me questions about what was happening being He's like wow. Did this happen in the book. or how did this happen differently in the book and I'm like this didn't happen at all like I'm just along for the ride with you and I love it. Yes yes there. Yeah we get to see what's happening. Is We get to see all these different timelines. Just in order this time Instead of kind referring us in the deep end like the second and third books do a little bit I think they are weaving all of this backstory kind of exposition. What what were these characters doing while Lyra doing this? Other stuff pendants much more dramatic. Yeah absolutely Let's just get right into it. He wants to yeah absolutely some housekeeping for this week over Swiss bowl dot COM Tesla debut in one weird trick. Excessively is new lifestyle. Style of ice podcasts.

And of course. We're still getting weird with the watchman over on we do. If any of these podcasts. Interesting just go to bald move dot com. Check them out or search for the show name. Wherever you listening to your podcasts? Okay so we start this episode with Lyra in the Gablers van confirmed. They're arriving in London and they are immediately taken over by the GYP. Russians Tony Benjamin Reuter and maybe a couple of other guys or a couple of other unnamed guy They take one hostage. Sorry Benjamin wasn't there. I don't think yeah okay. You're I believe so no. I think you're probably right I think Benjamin was there because because he's taken Tony under his wing and I imagine that anywhere that Tony goes in a sense not anymore but it was. I wasn't sure of Tony in Ben And we're going on their own independent mission or if this is just picking up where we left off Lauren. Far Farther Corum are all there. No that's not right because they already came back brought billy sweater to mock Austin all right so then we go to Mrs Coulter arriving at Jordan College and she tears is it. Apart looking for Lyra the master reveals he just looked so forlorn and put out. He's like I I try to do my best. I don't have a lengthy ometer anymore. And who knows how long has been relying on it to make decisions for him. He's you know that's a good point. I hadn't even thought of that. Yeah yeah he's he did his best or what he the thought was as best and Lyra still slipped away And the master reveals that he sent Lyra with the elite theater to Mrs Coulter's disappointments and she should've been the one that was responsible absolutely and she's done the work she can possibly do by letting her get away. Also Book Burners Get. Yeah whatever's coming to them. I just want to say yes in this scene. I like that Ruth Wills Ruth Wilson unlike myself is amazing at her enunciation the way she says elite. The ometer just makes your skin crawl on. It's amazing it's yes she really luxuriate in every syllable of a word. Yes I love. What she's doing here She also says in this book she finds and you know evidence of his heresy with these elite theater. Books the books that We said she should have been should have been sent away with with right at least one of them for fuck sake but yeah pray at least one. She says in the scene that she can identify who last read the books. I don't know if it's a spoiler for me to ask you how Alethia Manure I think. Oh really yeah. So there's other lethal meters. That are in use by the Majesty William they have at least one have at least one. Yeah I mean they have to. They have this much information about them and all that she asked us this firefly's later to put a good question and the magisterial is invested in finding Lyra too because there is they sent their own mission to find her with better better information right and Mrs Coulter seems to be Acting independently by tearing the place apart. Correct so then We go to Lyra joining the party. Finally Yep Back in Mukasi's boats. Tony lies to his mom's more about what he's been up to and his efforts to find the kids in working with Benjamin Reuter Until further corum comes and collects Lyra to bring her to Lord Faw aw and an information exchange and Lyra is incredible. I love this actress and what she's doing with all of these scenes her. Oh just standing up for what's right and it's just so pure and brave and where do you get that strength. Well it's from having the kind of parents I guess I just so I I mean speaks a lot to nature versus nurture right. Because they weren't around so why would she be this fierce. Exactly that kind of fortitude can be a force of of good or evil depending on where you point yourself. It's true So they kind of reveal. They don't want to tell her too much. They're dancing around on the fact that they know who our parents are. And we know this now And they say they're not keeping her prisoner but they do have a vested interest in her and Dan. They're surprised that she knows Lord as her father and they want to earn her trust so she agrees to stay with them. Because really what else is she gonNa Tale. Yeah Hander. Sort of tied at the moment I would like to know how deep this river is because Dang the belly of the ship is. It's like ten foot ceilings How does that? That's a deep river. I go deep river very deep very narrow river. Yeah this is not going to try to name names of rivers that I know in London not going to happen is the Tim's as the only one I know that's the only one I knew to. There are a lot of boats that travel those rivers but I thought there were long and deep boats. There long in the in the vertical sent vertically long. Yeah Yeah not horizontally. Next we see boreal meeting with a magisterial. Official named FRA Pavel. The magisterial is is upset with how she handled the rate of the Jordan College which absolutely she defied scholastic sanctuary. We find out uh-huh with very thin reason. Yeah she She showed her hand which they don't like to do. They like to be evil in secret So if you are being evil out out in the open it's just like snakes monkeys do. It's bad for him. Yeah and boreal says that are miss. Coulter is happy to bear consequences and boils happy to bear consequences but instead of any consequences being bore he instead offer his boreal information on. Where Lyra is is and the majesty rooms own secret attempts to find her? Why are they not working together? What is I'm just curious what it is? Mrs Mrs Coulter is done to not be in the magisterial favor because it seems like she has been serving them effectively up until now maybe they know. Oh that liar is her daughter. That is such an open secret house. Nobody known until now Nias option. I think everybody did no. It's just Lyra is the only one who didn't know But yeah I I think they think she is too obsessed about Lyra. Ah In a way that is not enough basically layman terms no but she. They're worried probably that she's going GonNa be to maternal and not willing to do what needs to be done. I E probably killed his girl with the weird destiny. Yeah I mean I get it women. They're just so emotional. You can't really trust them to get any work done I am lady parts. I'm saying with my tongue firmly in my cheek for anyone who you may doubt me. Yeah but also I you know I. I'm wondering now if how many people are aware of this prophecy. We were told in the very the very first episode of the show that there was a prophecy that involved Lyra so I'm wondering you. Mad does magisterial members trade and prophecy. who does scholars at colleges trade in prophecy. Earn Japan. Certainly do maybe so far we know of at least three groups who you know of this prophecy. The Majesty Him The witches and the So I mean that's almost everybody. Yeah I don't know we are so we go back to Lyra and pan. Pan Is arguing doing that. They should stay and LYRA decides that if they're gonNA stay she should at least blend in and she puts on some option clothes. I love these scenes because I'm always. I'm not watching for cracks. But I'm always keeping in mind that this is the dichotomy in your own mind that exists with Farther Corum and and soften acts and then Lyra and Pan I after remember that Lauren panel arguing against each other. But it's just the same procon list you would do in any decision you make exactly is just visible. Yeah it's just fucking adorable it is. I do wonder if the show is doing a good enough job showing that your demon is part of you. Not just a pet. Are you saying that there should be more demons ends because demons are as much of a star of the show as people. I've been arguing this episode one and I'm really glad to hear you coming over to my side and this is true. You know but I just I just fight the world for no reason absolutely. Oh I I don't have a reason. Here Real Griffin tore in that way. I say that because I know you're not sorry. Oh it's fine. I was saying anything important. Anyway where'd you go. Thought Comeback. Come back I need you. Don't you dare cut this very uniquely. womanly thing that we're doing where I apologize you for cutting you off off and then you also said that what you said wasn't important. It's it's just so female experience in a nutshell it's training. Yep Oh yeah so so. If the show isn't doing a good enough job showing that your demon is part of your soul or spirit or whatever. How could they do that better like Mike? I think it's I mean I feel like it's kind of improve her improving our. We're getting a little bit more with time. Like this unique relationship between Mrs Coulter in her monkey which I understand is completely unique. We haven't seen anything like that Without any other characters. And then you also see like Benjamin Jamin to Reuter is pretty much disabled wants. His Hawk is right. and Farther Corum sometimes shrimp soften knocks different. It's yeah I like what they're doing here. I feel like if more than three demons had had speaking roles. At this point it might help But so far we have heard pan speak Somalia and And the Masters Raven his name. I don't remember yeah. The Masters Raven online maybe two lines. We haven't heard boreal snakes. Say anything loop. Maybe it has been but it's impossible tongue so we don't understand yeah. Does he have the same kind of complicated relationship like Mrs. Mrs Coulter probably not always up on his body under is just gonNA say or do they do the thing where they just. Because I have seen this in the books to where your demons don't speak so much to other people when they're older But they do speak to their their human but more like privately I don't So LYRA is still setting the elite the perceived. She can make it work. Mukasa finds her and ask for help for help in the kitchen. Itching and Larry is not quite sure what good that'll do her until mock coster shows her some cool fire tricks and I don't know when the first time or this is your first Chris. I'm learning that when you throw pepper at hot stove top. It makes cool flames but I highly recommend trying it. Is that dangerous to recommend. I mean it involves fire so probably dude but it's pepper but also if you think even for a second that I'm not going to do that the next time I go to your house. You're living in a fantasy to my house. I'm going to do it in your health earthquakes because I'm totally happy some pepper to fire for you with you awesome. I loved it I was. I was just as delighted and immediately interested as Lyra was because I was kind of going into thinking of good work. Awesome and then fucking spark powder happened. It was amazing. I love it and I. I was unsure about Mach Kosta. I but she's really winning me over with everything she's doing. You know her desperation for a child also the love she incompassion she can have for other children Aldrin. It's it's really great. I wish she was my mom. We get to see her as more of whole person in this episode. Not just a distraught mother. Just Nice. Yeah and then you know Mukasa says you'll make a fine woman and Lyra does her of course bucking of trends thing and she says says you can be whatever you want to be. Your path is entirely your choice but as we all know destiny has been written so probably not maybe your destiny was her choice voices. She wrote long ago. But you'll be safe as houses says the woman missing child currently missing child and with another child who it is sneaking out at night. Yeah just I mean what she means is as long as you stay inside the walls. You'll be safe as a house a literal literal house with that logic. Yes that makes sense a literal boathouse. BOREAL crosses over into the other world and he has a a device locking his tire. In place I think this is called a boot. So Oh in the United States certainly it is called a boot But in the UK a boot is. It's your trunk the trunk of your car so if there are any UK listeners. I would love to know. Do you call it a boot or do you call. Just like a tire clamp. Turn self word. I literally researched this because I was so curious. Entire clamp I'm sure yeah I'm sure that's not. The proper name in a boot is not the proper name in America either shortages. I mean it's the colloquial term. I'm sure it's called like a Colo.. Quayle term lal term need to say like Ruth Wilson Nelson would He's I've just stumbling. Queer Queer could play several snakes daughter. perfect would be delightful on. I need to see that now. Yes then we go back too far record them and Lara having a talk about the nature of demons. He never guessed that. Tony's Hawk or Tony Hawk. I just I put that together but Tony is demon. Would turn into a hawk but of course it would because all GYP Sion's demons turn into birds uh-huh Alzheimer's MOMS is a hawk. So is it because where is it. I've never seen it in this scene. Where it's one of the later scenes where she reveals reveals to Lyra who her actual mother is? We see as she's walking away her hawk flying after her I mean I know. It's a bird because because she wears the brace all the time But derelict connection. Yeah totally that's why she wears that. Yeah I like that little leather armed bracing. Yeah it's also the cool fashion statement but still total surprise to farther corum who thinks that all demons turned cats apparently says he wants to turn into a mole and nice bit of like The other cool thing you can do with your demon is do a one to set up to Joe Perfect Knicks. Yeah you can be the built straight man. Says he wants to be a mole and then liar says so he can so he can hide from all the grown ups But doesn't really want pan ever settle and farther Corum says that your demons settling just reveals. What kind of person you are which really makes you think about what kind of to animals have a prescribed kind of you know like nature to them Affectation like a cat. You'd imagine a cat someone who's news kind of STOIC and keeps themselves and their self sufficient but you know can absolute benefit from love. I think that could describe fodder corum sneaky playful rand. We'll always still your food longer. Still your food yeah. They don't process hot hot hot Their mouth got their mouth. Yes yes hot. We all know this suffered acts often accidents this I wish soften accidents bigger me too. She I think she was described as bigger fluffier. Like I think liar even thinks to herself that she wants to run her fingers through the for but it would be taboo. Braise Gone Tasha Persons Demon. Yeah Shrewd Rudas. Fuck pet yeah But you know farther Corum says sometimes your demon men just settles into whoever you are and you can be discontented by that and sometimes he does dream different. which is really sad note? May He delivers here. It is also having a demon. Seems like such a cool thing because one you get to see when you grow up like Oh This is literally the kind of person I am. You can like you. Were talking about before with animals having certain characteristics like Oh this creature has this is me. This is me on the inside. The different you know forum that has obvious characteristics to it but if you don't like that form or like we discussed before if you don't like yourself you can never get away from yourself. Mikkola in her monkey. I guess. It's like a double edged sword. Yeah so everybody else can see your nature brady right. The other thing is this is something that I remember reading the book. And maybe this is the conversation that happened in the book between Corman Lyra or some other characters but they discuss how there was one. GYP Shen I believe. Or maybe he was just sailor who's deemed settled as Dolphin. So then he's bound to water forever and he doesn't want to be. You can't get away from your demon all right so it's like you kill yourself by going to live on the land or Makhachkala yourself in whatever way if you can't separate yourself Paul from your demon right by choice or you just live in the water resentfully forever or you come to peace with being water person. Yeah it's really interesting thing into contemplate. So then we see Benjamin droid terrier comes and takes fodder quorum and Lyra to see them other Gabler who tried to snatch Lyra getting. TV fourteen tortured by Benjamin Detroit's air which mostly just involves a lot of sweat and straining and exhaustion sweat and very dark lighting. Some like a st windows. Who knows what's happening there? That guy looks like he's in pain. I know so I'm GonNa take his word for it. Yeah Farther Corum says. Is this all right Lyra no no. It's not but it's happening anyway. So here we are. We are in this moment together watching the torture Lara's like I'm hoping I was hoping I'd see blood but I mean I guess we're getting information. This is fine. It's good enough. Can you. At least Stigler Bambi fingernails or something like water. Wash cloths anything. You're on a lake and a very deep Blake River river like river boredom and because as Lyra it is fine. Let's just move on. So let's move on to boreal meeting as contact at a lakeside cabin in a fucking Tesla Alexis Hi Emma Ding-dong I didn't even realize that was tesla trying to tesla my fiance literally House Hustle. Yeah is it cool. How'd you get booed off? How'd you get the boot off? Is it same car. And also how was he having this much real world money our world money to afford a tesla that that he can pay all the before the last episode we saw. He's got these tickets and now he's got this boot on his car. Yeah Yeah fucking people people in the UK do not mess around. If you get enough tickets they will just lock your car down like art motherfucker So we he's meeting with a friend booed off four magic snake magic. I have a theory Is that a bolt cutter in your pants you. I think it's a boycott cutter and spans. Maybe it's both a bolt cutter snake and he's happy to see the Holy Trinity the Holy Trinity. That's the matters theorems all about. Oh this is the podcast where you come to figure things out explains the symbol. So He's meeting with this guy who I watched the end credits to find out who this person's name was because I figured I missed it at some point but he doesn't have a name except he is called in the credits. The Pale faced man. Cool not not at all problem. So we step into a twin peaks episode in the mountains and he meets with this lakeside cabin even with this guy and he reveals Grumman is actually from this world and he has a wife and a child that he left behind in the most devastating piece of information. We find out that he is played by Andrew Scott Aka the hot priest from fleabag. Okay Okay I saw something about hot priest on and I thought to myself surely to God. They're not talking about for other apple is not hot. I was so confused. He also played Moriarty in Sherlock Series and Andrew. Sky Is is. He's warm to the touch right now. I'm going to have to do some Google and after this I did not look. I didn't look that I was mostly just so shocked. I although I absolutely should not have been that we are finding out about Grumman's true identity so early. We're finding that out before anything. Anything else about his family. Anything else. That doesn't happen until Oh my God like toward the end of book to be. Ah in the series. He's so yeah so we find out the boreal is doing this search just for himself and the Paleface as man says that maybe he could be born hearing God's demon when he crossed over and is not possible because he has a demon you you know what is the nature of his demon could he have just been been carrying around a hawk pretending ince's demon or a bird some kind of bird we don't really know any of of that yet and neither does boil boreal although he would very much like to pretend like he does right he seems like schilling a little bit of arrogance here right yeah. I wasn't sure if it was is area or if he had some kind of personal connection. I'm wondering in vain. Probably WANNA know. Spoilers it will say do doesn't know what the fuck he's he's talking about. I don't know they could be remixing. The whole series. It's fair they've changed really changed but showing a lot more things here. Yeah but I'm wondering you know Thinking if is he gay does he have a relationship with Grumman that he feels like he knows him so well all that it's not possible that he could be betrayed in this way because he also has them close talky scenes with Paleface man with fraud pavel but also also Miss Coulter. I mean he could be sleeping with all of these people. It seems like he's got some very personal interests that are mysterious various to us but then he goes to leave ends tries to tech someone and then changes his mind and deletes the text. I don't know if this is the same and I thought he's as he very much meets somebody else. I thought he deleted that tax and then ended up meeting someone later but I could have gotten that mixed up. So we see Benjamin Deroy recovering from an intense interrogation sequence wince and manages to learn that he hurt Mrs Coulter rather is taking the kids north. which is something that Lyra already? We knew so cool farther. Gorham says they can't go to Mrs Coulter's flat to find more information but LYRA still the plants idea and Benjamin's Reuters head anyway and she'll tour deep regret lighter. Yeah yes not the last time. She'll share information that leads to his downfall surreal. Holden action happening here. Then the law. I think this is the police or the magisterial him or the police. Acting on behalf of the magisterial I just as good as the police. With one ministering official. I saw dude with that little that collar like Matrix leather room to the the pin. That goes through both lapels thing. Yeah yeah the. The Majesty theory Pimm Valiant attempt in the so they. Those law finds this small contingent boats and searches them in a very tense scene. Where we also discover that there is a false wall behind the cabinets and Lyra is hiding in it? A lot of these law. Men have very scary police dogs that are various dating. It's not just that they can smell you. They can also sense you. I was trying to figure out why the search which scene was like so scary to me it was is one of the more tense scary search scenes. I would say I have seen recently and I was thinking like is it because of these really like pointy toothy dogs are. I don't know is it. The way it's shot is at the new color scheme used something about it is. It's really tense. I really like the scene. Yeah there's a lot of you know we get a lot sweaty shots and macaw macaw. Sta and Tony. You know they're kind of you think that they're standing right in front of our LYRA is and that's why they're so tense. They're going to look behind them and they know where she is trying to avoid looking in that direction and then also you know. The dogs are smelling their fear. And they know they have something to hide. But they don't don't quite know what it's a lot of a lot of impetus when you give dogs agency like that. It's going to say this is one of those scenes where the the issue of these demons being part of you comes up because these could just people use dogs. There's nothing distinguishing them from police. Dogs in the seen exactly or like most of the servants in any household have dogs as their Demons kitchen dogs. What happens if you change careers? I guess you're still is a dolphin. Notation you're stuck in that career forever right. Then we see Mrs Coulter in Lara's Aras Room missing her and the Monkey sees her in there enters the room and shuts the door behind him as he feathers start flying lying bucket tears apart. Yeah she goes full monkey on it four monty. Not The last time I'll fall monkey. There's no shit. Oh Oh my God. That was very effective. I like it Then we see Lyra running away on the shoreline after the police raid. Mukasa chases her and emotional. Scene finally tells her that Mrs Coulter is actually her mother. Kinda complicated flitted backstory here. The friends of Lord Azriel Azriel and Mrs Coulter fell in love. Missiles got pregnant and they try a to play it off like it was Edward Cultures Baby until she was born and look just like Azriel apparently in that way that babies do I guess not i. It came out he was just she was just a total deck to everyone in the a she was literate she. She came out and biting. It was a whole thing. Howard demons born are they do they come out of the mother say with the materialize if you're out out because if they come out at the same time but they're small small forms your demon grows with you but now I'm thinking about that so thanks yeah? Do you always give burst the puppies. Yeah baby and a small animal about that. That's not nice to think about uh-huh oh there it is. It's in your head for the rest of the day anyway. You're welcome. I guess she she was born and it. It was just like a little baby snow leopard with her. So looks like just like our Lord as real as real hid and Lyra with Egyptians but he was also also living with them at the same time and when Edward Coulter came to kill his baby and him he lost as real killed him defending defending his home. Edward died defending the violation of his wife so they both died defending their property earn. They didn't built. I only one person died defending his property. They fought defending their property. Yeah so ms closer was obviously a pariah for years because she she had more than one sexual relationship with a person in her life and Lord Azriel most importantly lost all of his material wealth and property so the real loser here asked the college for money to do stuff. I guess. Bright all comes full circle but the church took Mrs Coulter in so. She's fine in healthy insane. Of course it has absolutely banging apartment. Yep So when she had to complain about as Israel did steal liar away from a nunnery during the great flood which is where we saw that opening scene in the series and My Costa reveals. She was addiction. Nurse took care of her in that in between time. Sweet yeah very sweet I. I'm just now asking myself this question but why don't we know what Mrs Coulter was doing during this period uh-huh studying but it seems like scholar. Yeah as seems like she had a baby she was a vessel for the child to be born and then it was up to Lord Azriel to decide what happened to her. They took her away from Mrs Coulter or did MRS coulter give her up willingly. Because she's like the shame the shame born it. Looks like Lord Azriel. I can't live with this. Fuck this baby. I mean I I know the answer to. This show doesn't tell us at she. She gets her era for an option. Okay I mean I guess a kind of assume that. But she's not a misquote. There is not a stable person so we don't really we know wasn't sure of Azriel just stole the baby away because he's a Dick. I mean you're not wrong. He is Dick but I don't know that he's necessarily take baby. Stealing Dick are so we talked about this before but Tony they aged down. I'm to be about Lara's age. Probably a couple of mass older uh of puberty. Yeah did they age him down on just so Mukasa could believably nurse Lyra did she. Does she mean like wet nurse nurse her We're just take care offer in this. I feel like in the context of this world. wet-nurse make sense. Yeah jazz regular nurse but right I do as baby yeah. I'm not trying to nitpick the show but these are just thoughts that I was having you know the world building. I'm really interested in also. A baby can survive on more than just mother milk. Yeah so as we know. I mean they'd be formula exists other animals. Make Milk Right. Yeah I just like I guess what I really like is the closeness that they have even though they're so far apart So we see in a very terrifying scene. Miss Colter gets very drunk and his playing on the rooftop where she just mentioned last episode that she thinks about jumping sometimes can hear the wind blowing. Yes I felt like it kind of got my belly a little bit watch you see the monkey watching from the window inside. Just terrified for her and she settles in turn turned drunken state decides to release these spy flies to find Laura. I believe that she had already decided to do it. But she needed the booze and the AH liquid courage to make it happen and also the the adrenaline from walking on the edge of a fucking roof. Daf Yeah and sorry. Also the the defiance of the monkey could be another reason. You know just because you don't want me to write. Yeah we see the as she releases these really beautiful little bugs with lights in them. Real nate the Monkey. kind of like you know. Money makes an email at the window. It's unlucky face so we have to kind of give a little to it but it seems like it is not terribly terribly happy. She almost falls off at one point and he likes slaps his hand on the window. Like oh no yeah. Yeah I find these scenes so it's an excellent choice having her redeem and be a monkey because monkeys are so close in the evolutionary chain to humans that they can make these very am motive faces and I find these scenes things with her and her monkey when they're alone almost unwatchable. It's just so emotional. It's really painful. Yeah it's just I don't know where it's going to go. I don't want her to hit. Did I just feel I. Just it just makes me feel really discomfited Also these spy flies are dangerous in illegal for reasons And it says someone says in this episode that is because there's Maasai thanks says there's a dark soul inside inside so I don't know if that means that they that there's some sort of like dark magic or blood magic or something like that. That goes goes into it but you definitely are sacrfice definitely heretical. Have nothing else absolutely which I mean not that we should be surprised at this point that she's he's a hypocrite. We've seen her be a hypocrite in many ways but when it comes to religion she has also apparently hypocritic because she literally rated Jordan college like that morning so correct with no evidence until she found it. They're gonNA take place apart until she found some reason for her to be tearing the place apart exactly. Yep It goes so we seem boreal eating food out of a cone which must be like a street delicacy in London. I googled furiously to to figure this out because I I love food and I'm always just super interested in food and I think it's chips. Oh fries chips. That's interesting finish ships. Feel like I've Orford seems I thought maybe it might be some sort of like Asian food food or maybe a curry or something like that because I think I've seen an anime of characters eating something like that in a similar kind out of like Kona gold device that they give you to eat street food with the wooden four thing and the to work as all the important thing. He's eating street food. Yeah it's an interesting detail. Was that just to remind us that he is still in the modern world. Maybe or maybe that but also you know. He's taking part in these delicacies and things that he can't get in the underworld like better coffee for sure feeding himself. Treat yourself boreal. And so he meets with the mystery man and gives him what they don't say but we believe to be. Because it's in the same envelope Grumman's wife Hyphen Son Just to watch right so we'll see where that goes Then the Egyptians have a group roping groping is what they call it. We see the twenty seven children are now missing so gablers working double time. Now that they're onto them Raymond van Garrett believes that harboring fugitives is the real problem and it will draw extra attention to them Lyra gives a rousing speech about how the children are more frightened than they are and the what they need to do is fight back and everyone agrees to go north. Finally we're you're going north. Yes yes what would you say is in the North fighing things flying babies things that we're armor growling growing things. Nobody's Sarah Sarah and things. Fish Dead Fish Children QC groups of peoples. Whose name I know now? Similar words and tartars they are moyens in Iran can't believe People with flying buying vessels like balloons and sticks. I don't know I'm excited to see. This was a good scene I liked the the camaraderie and also just honestly finally removing from London proven and so long finally finally I also surprised is that they will get to when we get there so that evening Benjamin Derosier and Tony Sneak out Before Tony can get away. He's caught by Lyra Arah who gives them additional information on where to go. Once they find Mrs Coulter's Place Mrs such a terrible idea so then we'll So lyra continues to to play with the elite the ometer in discovers when she lets her mind go blank she can make it move. So she's onto something there. She's in she discovered the state of mind. You need to be and to make it work So being t perform a beanie just as Mukasa wakes up to discover Tony Gone and She wakes up Lyra. Who Tells Dell's are everything immediately So then we see breaking into Coulter's elevator shafts which is clever they did the latter in there for a reason right right yeah just for this not maintenance or anything accurate They go right through her office and find find some papers including a list of all of the children taken then the monkey who was scrambling around the walls discovers them and start screaming. Benjamin is able to grab Like the the blueprints for the station and I guess probably the location of it to which doesn't actually help anything as we find out would have but you have this sort of my favorite scenes throughout so it is very difficult to watch. Yeah feels like maybe this highest I would have gone gone over better in daylight. Honestly which is delay. Yeah Yeah just wait. Until she's gone to a luncheon or something and began takes you five minutes right and uh I know there's gotta be a limits. How Far Away her monkey can get if not? Just keep appearances up That you can that. You're this disconnected with your demon right. Tony runs to his room. And hides out sneaks out the same window that she got out so we don't need to. We don't need any further explanation about how the path is he gets out of there. You're going to get to see. Exactly what colder did that room which is to say destroyed yup absolutely demolished. monkeying it up. Full Monkey Mrs Coulter pulls out fucking miniature tank. Fist size is very delightful. Time Gun yod AH shoots Tony arm suppresses armed and getting blown off right but the we see how humans and demons interact with each other other here she attacks him in this way that I thought for a couple of times but I thought I looked like she was doing some complicated martial arts hurts but in fact she's attacking like a monkey does and she doesn't even need to be that powerful because her actual muggy is attacking the bird and overpowering it so it makes me wonder I thought maybe when Tony broke out of Mrs Coulter's hold and slapped her across the face that his demon would respond spawned accordingly and break out of the monkeys. Hold like if you are stronger. Human Man Than the person you're fighting you know it just depends on who has the power and it can be reversed at any time when you're overtaking someone but it seems like the demons really kind of trump that yeah I was curious about a to Because the Burgess wiggled away basically whenever he got away yeah. I don't know if that was just for convenience for the scene but it didn't really the Monkey. He had a really good hold on the bird. I don't know how how tied the physical actions are. We say they're tied at least a little bit. Whenever you're upset because like you said colder just it goes full fucking sloppy monkey because her monkey is beating fists right? Yeah you see the monkey like using the backs of its hands to beat down the bird word and like his fifty sloppy that yeah. It's wild and then everything she does. After that is still very monkfish. She's just slow. This was great right. Yeah even like her like the way she got a crouches over him and the way she screams down the elevator shaft own. ooh So monkey. It's I really love what they're doing this but again unwatchable very difficult. So Yeah Yeah really folks feels we go back to the boats and mock Costa's really upset that she's lost another son who was supposed to be safe as houses and Lyra says that you can just blame my mother or you can blame me. And she thinks farther Corum for trying to keep her safe bridging this trust boundary between them because they didn't have the same emotional moments he and Arshi is Mon Kosta earlier and she tells him she has ille- theater and being the wise old soul that he is of course he knows a little bit about it and tells her that you know just generally really how it works that she needs to point the hands and directions and that they correspond but it would take years to study and understand this She goes back still in her room. She ever room she just. She's listening. General area yeah in the hallway shows a little table in the hallway. Sushi keeps China. Use it and does make it work. Unfortunately the first true thing that she learns is that Benjamin Reuter is dead. Yeah which is not not the best thing that you want to hear the first. I'm use a new piece of technology. I also thought it was a little bit interesting. Just from the viewpoint of you know being a woman and having navigated life as a woman the Pan telling Lyra which is Lyra subconscious telling her. Oh this is too hard the six years of study. What makes you think that you can do this? which almost connects are not try again? A So so identifiable. Yeah I I was yelling at my screen at that point like no you stop. That is internalised misogyny. And she's still a young woman so she still got that fight in her and not enough people told her she can't yet. She has an internalized it. Yeah it's it's very good observation. Thanks so she runs a loft to tell farther corum that Benjamin Reuter is dead and she knows that a relief Leuthi ometer when the spy flies attack her pan She manages the capture. One but PAN is too little to get his Could use that but wildcat the wildcat version. Yeah well because one hundred away that's why negatively. So he he reveals that it's You know it's a spy fly. He's also he's the wise old soul that also knows what this is and Mrs Coulter definitely knows now because is one of them. Got Away At that same time Tony Returns and reveals a Benjamin to Reuter is dead confirming that Lyra Canley read the lead the ometer and he also brought back the list of children that were taken. which includes billy? It's very long. List heartbreaking twenty we seven ish people long I like in this scene. That far Corum says Oh. Someone grabbed that other spy firefly and I think I hear in the background. Someone goes well. I don't know it's pretty fast who I listened to it a couple of times. I swears on what's that I want so much for that to be true. I suspected as not. But it's cannon absolutely going to go back and watch that scene again that's amazing. Yeah listen to this background actors. They're they're doing a lot. And also this Tony Kosta is not a good actor. And it's unfortunate he i-it's such not not good actor really pulled me out of the scene of delivering the death of this Benjamin droids her which I mean Benjamin's doing the best again or the actor. I don't know his name actually actually doing the best you can to sell us on this fake torture scene and is taking Tony under his wing. And I feel like Tony's not giving us a lot like he seems to be the least affected by Benjamin to Reuter's death here in the scene. Yes faces maybe a little too STOIC. For like on the one hand yeah I get it because that is definitely a a thing that teenage boys want to do to make themselves seem more adult were mainly just completely like try to shut their faces off showing emotion but also it doesn't make for great acting early but but he's also young and he you know he could see why he would try or want to and get angry but he he's missing brother who could be dead and now how his only kind of paternal figure in his life is dead died in front of him. Yeah that that kind kind of facial acting requires a lot of skill. Yeah and you're playing this guy. Against this daphne keen. And who's very good at the subtle face face acting. Yeah who's just. He's she's doing the most with her her youth and vitality and I just I don't know it just if I'm I'm just kind of disappointed debated whether or not even bringing this up but then I realize that there are thousands hundreds millions of people. AW WHO WANNA be actors who can do great you know we saw the Taryn Edgerton from the kingsman kind of do you something. Similar this This false male proviso kind of thing ever since he was young and it just it makes you just expect more because everyone else is doing so much in the scene that it just took me out of it so sorry So then we go to further corum telling Lord far that they can't recover the body because you know if any attempts would immediately reveal who you are and your complicity and he also says a liar knows at a really theater her and he makes the peak to shocked face and he encourages Lord fodder stay strong and believes that they will get get their children back. So I'm going to bring up another point that I've done before Had this crazy conspiracy theory that Benjamin Reuter was billion. Tony Costs His Dad And now we see Farther Corum who ostensibly childless consoling Lord. Faw who who also may be childless Why an also Benjamin Reuter does he have children? I don't know why are these three guys so particularly particularly invested in their children that they need to comfort each other this much I I just. I don't think this is the pet theory as much as I think that they're telegraphing talk. Show that there's a secret dad in there somewhere and I think it's Lord yeah with these two boys because he and mock Kosta had A. Ah You know face to face seen last episode. I don't know what do you think I'm crazy. If you are being crazy I would say it'd be very lightly crazy. I don't know that that would have a lot of bearing on the story as a whole so. I don't know why they would spend so much time. Colluding that I think it might just must be the gypsy. Culture is such A. It's like a close knit family. Everybody is everybody else's kid kind of Daily where like everybody raises everybody else's kids so you do feel that relationship more so than like American families and kids would. Yeah maybe maybe just. I don't know say me. They're all fucking in the language of cinema the fact that he would need to take this extra for the majority of this scene to be occupied ride with him comforting Lord far as opposed to revealing that Lyra can read this. The ometer means the scene was meant more for these men than it was for the LYRA reveal reveal. And you're spending this much emotional energy on these childless men then you are making mock Acosta need want desperate to find her children and more than you know being rational about finding it. I don't know it's just just the thought that entered my mind. I think there's a secret data here it is also just kind of nine Daddy. Detector's going off. Oh boy your daddy ready Dr Fantastic. But I don't fuck and t shirt I will. I'll do ridiculous it is also just kind of Nice to see men like having emotions that are healthy right. Maybe that's the thing that's blowing my mind here. Is that these manner just having a healthy expression of emotion except for Tony Costa Masa tells Lyra to keep the spy. I fly just as she's about to throw in the ocean because it's a fun. keepsake for me crazy. Oh that was really. That's really really interesting reasoning for that. I man find some other reason Larry could just be like she could forget about it or something but they have to show us it again. So it's a spoiler to say that this same thing happens in the book she keeps this second by for good and she seals it up in a tin MHM. Can you remind me what it is. What the reasoning was for her keeping it then for achieving it? Then she literally says that she forgot about it. She shoved it down to the bottom of her bag and forgot about it and then she remembers it at an appropriate time later in the series. I guess I I guess I believe that more as a twelve overruled girl to keep the thing. Because why would I get rid of this thing. That could be valuable. Yeah I think they were literally just trying to give us another scene with with a spy fly so that we would remember later it because just showing her tucking a ten into her bag might not have been. Yeah so I guess my questions Russians are like if you know that it is a bad spirit as some bad juju habits that thing Why keep it? If you believe in the bad Juju then why would you want that near your own soul. I don't know or if you believe in bad spirits spirits inhabiting technology. Why would you keep it? Because when that make you traceable young or these. It's a fair point. We knows three central questions is we don't even know how they communicate the information that they somebody does somebody. Does I guess they know enough to know that it can repeat this information back to Mrs Coulter but the information is contained and within the thing itself. May I don't know I guess I would just start making assumptions like. Can this one communicate with that one because I can communicate with my demon so are these two appeared in a sense like let me get rid of this fucking thing immediately. I don't know it's weird and there's also the question of can you actually destroy these things Because her reasoning for telling not to just pitching in the ocean is because us. It's a metal box. It's going to rust at some point and those things like water doesn't hurt them. Apparently just get out and come back active getter. I don't know what possible information could arrest out on our deathbed and be like as as Larry is holding her hands. You know they've made peace and everything. Yeah in the spies glowers alive. She's going north so yes she keeps it which so I mean hopefully I think comes back. It's indestructible enough that. It can't take really good strong boot stopping to destroy it. You would think yeah. I don't another They are sticking to the book here on a thing that is I would say maybe you didn't necessarily need to stick to the books. Because there are many other ways that she could have found out that they were going north. I mean an entire band of Jeff captions grouping together and moving north. Like nobody's GonNa notice that Yeah the same. That Lyra pointed out as they were moving north actually would make sense. It's finally we see boreal finding Mrs Coltart nursing a hell of a hangover. She insists the magisterial is taken care of just as a spy fly returns. And they've found. Lara boreal says a spy fly. Are you out of your mind and again. I can't say enough things about what Laura or Lord boreal Lord boreal daddy boroughs during with every see and I see him in in the sleepy. Elba the Pan Sexuality of of it could be sleeping with everyone he could be moved. No one I I don't know I just I. I'm dying to see more of him and his demon. It's all very good. I'm dying to see more of these two characters in the same room together Just being for US naked but whatever is fine whatever I can get whatever. Fourteen year olds deemed. Fourteen is close close to that as you can get. which is this scene? I guess at least slow dancing or something. Yes slow dancing. Thank you holding hands. Please But what we're actually seeing is to like tired villains hanging on hanging out on a couch together and I can't help but notice that Culture is giving him all the information she has. He's not giving her shit nerve. Nothing about John Perry nothing. Oh Oh yeah. She doesn't even know she doesn't even know that he's been crossing over. NOPE none of that. In fact I don't even think she knows he's meeting with the Majesty Area M- the same people she's working with uh-huh and I don't think you sharing with her information Lara's with addictions so she's finding out the liars with Egyptians from the spy Fi hacker and who knows what else aspire fly can communicate to her Because it's magic and could be anything but Lord boreal is purely acting in his own interests You know we see the Paleface man accuses him of this by saying. Oh this is personal as an and Yeah I don't know what he's doing but she also says the magisterial taking care of so it's clearly not yeah or maybe she asked me that over. I don't know she seems to be descending into some kind of crazy but yeah that's where we leave the episode any parting thoughts thoughts. Yes I have thought to. My biggest thought is we're going north. We're going north it's happening. y'All is happening. Second thought thought is we got some really cool scenes in this episode. It was nice. Yeah you can cut that out. That wasn't anything. Oh I love this. This is fun this. This is a fun episode. This is a fun season series so far I am so glad that the I I think the first episode had some Hiccups Cups. There's some things I think. All that criticism still stands. But this I am just getting more and more excited every time I watch a show. I haven't been this excited about watching and and also covering a show in a long time like I was telling you earlier. This morning I have covered five seasons of American horror story so to be really excited about covering a show and talking about it at the same time. It has happened in a while. I'm just happy happy for the opportunity to get on Mike with you. Yeah true true podcast or is also that girl power power and we had five. I am three Styrofoam cups in a trenchcoat pretending to be human. Yeah so it's nice always again do okay before we go. Yeah I do have a couple of pieces of feedback from our listeners. If anyone listening also wants to send their own feedback you can do so. TV A BALD MOVE DOT dot com. We also have a weekly discussion. That's going on in the forums. BALD MOVE DOT com. You can find us on all of social media at bald move and also uh-huh just you know love US donate us. Give us constructive criticism if you want but never say anything bad about US and if you want to hugh follow those rules you can do so by rating and reviewing us anywhere you listen to podcasts. Okay so I I feed back from Molly Molly says is. Are you able to speculate on. Why the master allowed Lyra to go with Miss Coulter without risking spoilers? It doesn't seem like he had much faith in her caretaking abilities. His did he feel obliged to let her take Lyra because she has liars bio mom or was he trying to placate the majesty him was he worry. LYRA was not going to be safe at Jordan in the near future future. I'm curious what prompted is since he did seem to have scholar lease or scholastic sanctuary pretty well in place until this episode. I don't think it's too much of a spoiler to talk. Talk about I do think some of it is him just thinking I guess the biology is GonNa take over with Mrs Coulter like she'll surely if she has a child she will act like mother right. Which isn't hell anything works but good on you for reinforcing those stereotypes man? Yeah absolutely and I also think he knew that he couldn't keep her Jordan anymore and she had literally nowhere else to go because fucking Azriel made it pretty clear that he was not interested in having a tag along right exactly like he doesn't have if someone like Miss Coulter Lord Azriel shows up and once sued demand the child. Then you don't have any rights to say no more of someone like the Magic Stadium shows up and says that we're GONNA put her back in a nunnery or a place where children go. Oh they don't really have an argument there. Maybe just hoping that sitting are with Mrs Coulter would be the lesser of two evils. But right you know you send her with this person who is kind of evil and does bad and you put this person up against their biggest enemy themselves in a way. which is you know? LYRA could be Many Mrs Coulter and could reflect herself on her. So you wouldn't hurt yourself or your own child in that way and might even make you think a little bit more deeply about your own decisions when you see that you know like you see this over and over again Once you start to humanize or personalize an issue you can empathize with them more. You know suddenly win. You're thinking about women's rights for example anything about your own mommy earn wipe or your sister than suddenly you have of face for this issue. So maybe if she she is spending time with Lyra and she sees that children are special needs to be preserved for you know whatever is. She's doing these kids then then maybe she'll stop during it or reconsider. Actions are the very least. She's not going to hurt Lyra Larry's not going to be in an immediate danger. Yeah I think that was I think you nailed it there more. WHO's thinking she won't be in immediate danger at least maybe she or somebody else can figure something else out? But it's not my problem. How many more? I'm just trying to save my school right exactly. Yeah so I can't tell you for sure molly but hopefully that's a good idea Our next and final piece of feedback is from Brian. He's got a couple of points here. I I've never understood why ransack irs tair apart. Books when ransacking in this case I suppose Mrs Coulter is just being a Meghan. Beats the master and breaking all this shit. It just seems unnecessary absolutely. She seems to be just pissed that for one. It didn't occur to her sooner than the master would trust her with Lyra and also not want to take her back because he already trusted with Lyra and yes she fucked stop. She's acting outside the matter stadiums order so may as well make it big. Yeah she is absolutely. She's taking out her frustration on this college just because does it harbored Lyra for so long under scholastic sanctuary which If my understanding is correct. That's why she couldn't come to the school collector herself The last twelve years. Yeah it also makes you wonder. How long did she know? The LYRA was there She just recently find out and come to collect has she always known when she gave her up to Lord Azriel report back after the Great Flood Wind. When did that relationship end? Did that relationship end. All good. Questions need Brian Second Point. I didn't notice any of Mrs Coulter Squad having demons apart from one or two guarding the door with their Belgian malnourished partners Light spoiler could these be some demon list zombies or just cost savings from the production side. Ni- instincts say cost savings. But we can be generous and say that these could be people who have been cut off from the fade in by the Fayed. I mean imagination. Sorry I got my I know you looking at me with a big is I got my fantasy properties mixed up okay. It happens as long as it wasn't spoiler for the future. No that's a different thing just dreams and all that shit it is basically yeah Yeah Yeah I think it's cost. Production savings is at the same time. I think that so. We didn't don't say this before now but I am going to the last part of Brian's email I think it's going to get a little bit more spoiler not anything that's going to blow apart the entire series maybe the end of the season. I'm not sure but I'm going to get into some very light spoilers right now. You've been warned. I think think for sure. We've seen a demon `less person in the form of that nurse that picked up Tony and Roger or billion Roger. You saw the nurse say boys to the right girls. A little after whatever I think she's demon lists person. She's got a haunted look about her. Yeah so I think we works. We can assume that she works With the station somehow the because we know that those are mostly the people who man that station and that they just have haunted appearance about them. So I know we've seen those people exist but not sure the guards are they make for good guards. Yes US fifty percent less liability not creative enough to the unhappy about anything Brian continues. They seem to be really playing up the monkey being Mrs Coulter's savage be she'll cruel side and her being extremely disconnected from him. I'm at all times. I didn't get a lot of that from the original trilogy. Assuming this pulled from the new trilogy either way I really like it. That's really interesting because I have to say I feel the exact opposite way. I think in the book series a lot. More of Mrs Coulter is like her anger and her like you said that bestial nature is in the monkey where she herself gets to stay this poised prim. You know vision of feminity where in the show it. I feel like it's very much the opposite. I feel like the monkey is much more regretful of her actions in all but the scene where she you know and the scene where he attacks Lyra but both times. She told him to do that but I think he is not receiving like active orders from her. He is hanging back and not super happy about what's going on MRS COULTER IS I. Don't WANNA say getting to be the bad the guy in this one because sounding like being a bad guy a good thing and it's not but I think she is being allowed to take on more of that role which is Kinda cool to see in a female villain the others. They're doing a lot with these two and I will say from just reading the I book so far that we don't get any of this relationship with her and her demon at all like they don't even hand tend towards there being Iran even know if they say what kind of demon she has they probably do. But that's the most you get their relationship in the first book so so this seems this is really interesting. What they're doing? I feel like it's also very unique relationship that they're building for the show because they brought in puppeteers appears to do most of the deem the most of the like central demon work. So when you have that going on it gives it this extra. Uh You know personalization extra sensitive physicality. Yeah Yeah like it. Is You know a coast of the show Like they should be Brian's email continues with the Ben Tony Flat Heist is nice. Add to a slowest part of the story. They're doing doing great job. Keeping the tempo up and what can sometimes be a talk heavy part of the book for me this fair yet. Not That's fair. I'm not sure I'm thinking about what it changes as far as a bookstore. He goes and doesn't seem to be much much at all all in order to keep the central part of the story continuing to go forward. I think what we're saying. Is the writers attempt to you know. Gather all of this information and give it to us in a way that is super slow and boring but also moves the story forward in a way that is supposed to move forward so putting the pieces in place to come back later on but having to be a little bit creative about how they do that because the pace is accelerated right and I was also thinking to myself that I couldn't believe that they waited this long to have lyra really the amish earn any kind of comprehensible way. They waited until most of the way through this episode before she could and even then it wasn't reliable information gets She hasn't really gotten reliable. Actionable information yet. So this is one of those times when they stunted that growth in a way that was really effective. You know she couldn't have had that emotional scene with breath. Lord Faa and Far Corum where she's withholding information from them and their chambers or the the reveal with mock Kosta where she says she took her in. You could have had any of those moments really work if she had learned to any sooner exactly. Yeah it would have. It would have broken the story a little bit. If she'd she'd been able to figure it out sooner so as much as logically it makes sense at the master of Jordan would have at least told her like hey three hands watch. Watch the needle. Clear your mind here. This is here. Let me teach you how to meditate rollback but it works better for the story if they don't do that even though it would make much more sense happened so it's a little bit of it's a little bit of plot that stuff but what are you gonNA do Finally Brian Concludes James. COSMO's absolutely killing it. As Far Corum Loving his interactions actions. With LYRA and Daphne keen is also giving some great range in her scenes. Can't wait for next week. Armored Bear Oh boy I hope so but you know what I don't even know if it will be I think it will. I think we're GONNA spend some time with witches the next episode because fully journeying. We're going to spend time with witches and also. Oh we're GONNA find out more about book. Two's CO protagonist. I coach I in the next tag step next episode. That'll be fun all right. Yeah they're in the preview. I did. I watched the preview for next week. which which I usually don't do but it had? It looks like it's going to be these scores. Be Armored Bear your burnt Berenson Heavy episode And I'm going to just reserve all of my thoughts for when that happened right but I am excited armed. Bear bear bear am hoping for what I am hoping for more. Yeah I'm hoping for which is so that we can stop pretending like they don't exist and the main podcast 'cause I've been like dancing around. It haven't explicitly said too much about them. They they said which is a couple of times that no context whatsoever just which is thanks. Ray could be which is in the Salem Massachusetts sense like these women just know math right. Yeah or you know they know how to make fucking healing salves suddenly there which is yeah. Yeah they they discover the first version of Neo sporran and it's Burnham let some men say credit they know at routes to chew when you don't want to be pregnant right exactly exactly get pregnant both all right. Well that's all I've got for this week. Offer more hot takes on feminist issues. and which is and are in bears and any other lenny. Other things you want to talk about in the meantime we'll talk about his dark materials You can email us at TV bald move. DOT COM or forms bald move dot com against joining with the fellow fans. But until we see you next week I am your host Sicily. I'm your co host Alexis. Bye Bye so as we watch. These suburban Garden Catholic Catholic without stubbing it. We noticed that it moves like not Dagh. ooh It's inanimate and utterly without brain function but despite that when it got known hears about how Geico not only saves people money but also gives them access to licensed insurgents twenty four seven online and over the phone. It's clear to them. You should switch because yes. Switching to GEICO is a no brainer on second thought. Maybe don't watch garden. gnomes to carefully people might talk.

denying you claims denying what tomorrow today of course is is Thursday that means corporation hungry for a treat will come on down the Schmucky chucky cheese renal we say so a good hamburger and French fries and every burger comes with a side contents ward a one tenth orange juice after a week or two you drink this it's two hundred calories and it's let's give you a mid but at Schmucky Chucky you get complimentary Kline Nicole how are you I'm good how about all of a sudden fire started popping up everywhere in fact I the ends meet Santa Monica Canyon and the fire of accusations zone went right up to my old you guys were safe from this round of fires yes right we so far yeah it was the police might have been the fire department and I said no I don't WanNa Eddie fire which is the one that affected my old neighborhood seems to be somewhat under xers and it just it's it's so sad that this is happening so not only where I live but you know where I shop and where I in Compton so when he has to drive back to backing up traffic for hours I mean it takes him literally hours to get home and this was all predicted this part of climate change and they predicted that that did you happen to watch any of the the the debate before the vote for this a new vote it and and it it was it was almost these are one hundred and ninety six the resolution is adopted without speak that we're GonNa talk it was the illegal it was secret it's like the so Steve Scalise Kim voted against it all democrats except for two voted for it Republicans what he his district I mean he's right up against off usually not just geographically to north and South Dakota then he is to I was told by a senior Democrat that Pelosi had told him protect himself if he felt that's what he wanted to do and you know I don't a year or two so his is our plus one and and you know which at this point like I said the the calculations on TV are lagging Are Plus six or seven or eight some of them are plus ten and eleven and twelve but on the other hand he's something else which is she's you know here's the worst member of the New Jersey State Senate and the D triple c you and try to offer him incentives to to run for Congress immediately You know I knew will what he was did vote for impeachment and he he's he's a weird guy he's got a really terrible already or you know co signers of of Medicare for all wow he kept everybody waiting until yesterday yesterday he had he announced that he was going to vote for and that's how it's supposed to work you're not supposed to have a preordained answer every one who I know who are who who's in cars and it's not that save a to to people who say that they are we do know and and that's what makes this such a shame the whole Nevada other week they're on recess now for Dan Yeah yeah I mean it's kind of you know it's kind of the way the rules of course the Republicans are freaking out about it I mean they'd be freaking you out no matter what's happening I I right right I was surprised that they were able to keep their would vote would vote for the hearings and none of them did I how and it he would it would've cost him nothing and it's interesting that he didn't do it because we read and you don't need you don't need any independence you don't need any Democrats addict independence and you just play the base there you know I was looking at this state voters are are Republicans sixty four that that that's the most of any state attendance let alone Democrats the people who who were there they just and then you look at a state like Well I'm going to surprise you with this one I think you affiliated voters than there are Democrats or Republicans so taking guests percentage okay the highest percentage of independence. I'm looking at both the that's great so it's not Oregon with your your folks I'm seeing organs and is considered to be a red state in fact the matter is elect independence to statewide office okay interesting so now some of the Chat New Hampshire is one of the top ten yet another Oregon Texas so that's so we don't have to keep doing this it of of independent voters so so there if you don't appealed if that's the way it is however think back of a couple of is opposed by a fanatic right wing psychopath named Joe beat her in the primary so she ran as a write in candidates appealing and she beat him handily and now that has freed her up freaked out that her colleagues in the in the US Senate Republican colleagues one of the more independent members of the Republican Party in the US Senate right now so the chat room people main because that's another state where I and I think it's independence number one Democrats number two and then interesting so yeah so in states like that you out in this trump Impeachment thing the you know in in states that you do not win without independent voters they will they just went through the base they went for trump's down is when they vote up down for impeachment so was was today party line when it comes to the actual voter impeachment I think it will be probably at getting another career if they if they try it again who will then like what's his name the lieutenant colonel in full dress uniform the
