Cricket karen is a as his website describes them a freelance photographer over in worthing in the uk specializing in architecture portrait and editorial work but to say that really does not do justice to his career at all. His work has been on the front page of every national newspaper in the uk. He has a portfolio of celebrities and public figures.

I have to ask because the news as recording this the uk is getting the first doses of the covid vaccine house. The mood over there. Is everybody pretty excited for this. A little skeptical. Yeah a real mixed bag. I think people are excited. But i think we're slightly skeptical simply because of the way. I think our government is handle it so far hasn't been will beating a world class so i think at the moment i think the government and riding on this vaccine in the final with us country have it. The people are the kind of nevada. They don't necessarily know where they're gonna abbott Trusted really. I think we're just gonna see how it goes is obviously the first day so we'll just say well. I hope it all works out better than anybody's expectations because photography as well as every other profession on the planet has been really affected by the lockdowns which brings me to to. Let's just jump in the deep end here. You have a project that is really interesting and really impressive called parks and no recreation thrown and before we get into it. We should tell everybody that your website. And i hope they go to. This sort of follow along is mcgregor. Photography dot co dot uk mcgregor m. c. c. r. I c. k. a. r. d. photography all one word dot co dot uk. And they can get to this project from the about page at the bottom. You've got linked to the latest editorial from the guardian. Which is this but there's also a separate site. I'm a cricket. Photography dot e set dot com slash parks to no recreation. So give it a shot folks. You're gonna find can't tell us what what is parks to no recreation will. It was born simply out of the pandemic under lockdown. Obviously the whole pandemic star raises heading january february. And then i know it's things starting to really slowdown in february with jobs dropping off. 'cause i do work in london and i do abroad. The that stuff abroad really dropped off after march but the stuff in london to fade away a bit and then obviously march the twenty fourth think it was came along and everything just disappeared and i think a lot of us were staring into an abyss. Really we didn't really know what was happening or what would happen in in the future. So once march twenty four th came in on are starting to think. I need to look for different things to do. I need to look about finding another way of bringing money subject to kids and wife allow allowable will kind of thing so i went out and i started. June speculative stuff. Mt beaches empty days. Mtpa the nice to after a couple of weeks to try and pushing these. These specs pitches to the newspapers. I wasn't getting anywhere. And i realized is because there was so many other photographers out. Who in the same boat because the country had shutdowns. There was no concerts. Politicians went moving. The royalty weren't moving around those no sports games to all those talk. I used to do that stuff. Had nothing to do so everyone was out doing the same thing so a couple of weeks. Anita do some different so driving around with my girls just exercise trying to get you know do anything. We could really to get out a house every day and exert. She won't matthias. Projects i started was single unwonted potomac and it was actually photographing oldest stuff. That people would clearing out of their houses and carriages loss because people were home all the time now they can coach their offices were board said they clean out the houses on the street for people to take and this ranged from absolute junk to stuff that you think well i can actually have the semi on home kind of thing so i start around photographing just driving around all this stuff that people would leave and that was great after a while i noticed that people only have a finite amount stuff and they were taking it and it was all around anymore. This is after a couple of weeks. It was all going on. I roy okay. Let's think about doing more empty stuff places. The arm inhabited anymore about football pitches. Tennis cool things like that. But they're all the same from above or any point the rule of saying some slightly different colors. So i think i think i did. I went to a crazy gulf. Cut range thing that name kills co two and it was usually close down. So i'm gonna see what it looks like from above so i got the trona look. Good it look nice. There was competition that was colors but it was. It was really really busy too. It was a crazy sensitive like dinosaurs volcanoes all this stuff kicking off in mobile. They look good. But i'm going to try something else. So i went round to my local park zone. Ikuta wall traffic control and got up and shot from higher up.

"What's interesting about you. Is you start got into acting a bit later than most which is an interesting story so You went down. And we're doing something with the play then decided audition. Is that what it was. Yeah i was doing a story on This he was the then new artistic director. Trinity rep company in providence. Which is one of the few if not the only rep company left in the country but he came from steppenwolf in chicago and i always wanted to be an actor in so i started hanging around with him going to shows and just watching people. Just the mac nations of theater and i. so what am i waiting for. What the hell am i waiting for. This never had the courage to try it. And that debt gave me the courage to try it in in the bug. Bit hard and i've been just been ever since. What was that night. The play. I saw their addition for sorry took. That was later life. So you didn't audition for that play. You were interviewing him. And then that motivated addition for another play for another play calendar life in the then i want to see like the cherry orchard at trinity rep in one of the actors the came in from the sides on the the the lobby area one of the actors were standing right next to me and i could see like the hair on his arms his nahshon flaring and i swear almost cried because it was so electric and so immediate a what. What power this. This medium has to on people to vote that kind of response and offices. I've got to try this. I've just got to do it. I don't know why. I denied myself all those years. I think i just feared failure. And i don't like doing things unless i'm good at it. You know a a so. I just tried it in a fairly good at it and it's been a great ride ever since. I'm curious what that first audition was like. When you just kind of went down there no having no experience in then handing me a script and basically he. Oh hey read this. Yeah and i never forget it. Because i was sitting in a group of other people including a couple of guys it was competing with and it just felt real in in good in normal. It just reading somebody else's words pretending to be this character. The characters name was austin in the play austin from boston. Oddly enough and it's just reading it and it just felt if folic completion of some sort pretend to be somebody else my whole life of always pretended to be other people's joking around making people laugh. Or whatever just being a class clown sort of thing and then when i was reading this it the legitimacy to to acting out i mean all those years is a goofball it just gave that sense of like you said legitimacy said so this is this is what it feels like to be someone else in in a setting where you have permission to be someone someone else and i loved it so it absolutely loved it and they gave me the part the lead and it was phenomenal. I got on stage and it was like i think lewd to an in the email The lady who was going out ahead of me said my heart's in my throat is at normal. Because i don't think so. And she smiled and went out and i laughed and it just got out there. All nerves went away. It just felt like this is the place. I've been my whole life but you know you come to things when you come to them so i've been making. Yeah that's beautiful because it's true too because you you might be off stage in your heart's racing but as soon as you're out there in that zone how yet none of that matters. You're just you're so focused on what you're doing it's exactly yeah off. If you're an actor too right yeah yeah. Yeah yeah so you know let me. Just what a feeling he asked in. It's an honor privilege to do that. To take some take people somewhere else just to get them out of their own world for a little while and take them into yours it is. It's a privilege that we don't take lightly. Was it stressful being. That's your first play in your in a major role in your first play and you don't have the experience so i'm just thinking even stage directions right. So if the directors like okay. I needed to go stage left. And you're like okay. Is that way exactly because we started rehearsing. And they said we're going to go of blocking like tomorrow and what's blocking this where they tell you where to stand said. Oh that'd be helpful because if you're not used at the film even and you just see people walking and now i really obnoxious points. My girlfriend us to see that guy walking. He's just wasn't walking randomly. They told them where to go. And the so many moving parts to play in film yet and it was all new to me and it still feels new in so many ways. Even though i've done till dozens of films and bunches of place this just a newness to it and there's an earnest embrace of the entire process. I love reader player hill. Says i don't like film rehearsal so much i think it kinda rob's spot and eighty but you know just referrals to play rehill so i like to go to rehearsal sometimes. I'm not even needed off just to watch other people do it so hopefully hopefully at newness and a new hobby you just want to devour. Everything still feels that way. That's been twelve years now so it's great yeah Just from my experience as well like it doesn't go away because you've got a new production and cast that you're working with and in a lot of ways it's new even though you might be doing the same show night after night for a while. It's still that you ever hersal process. And in that excitement of that opening night and in i've always said this i mean an audience is a living breathing organism in it changes when you change. Do it's different every night. You know this. I mean some nights she deliver line and raucous laughter in the next night since crickets. How does that happen. It's the same joke. It's the same way just two different different organisms out there taking it all in you ever had a situation where you like blanked online or tripped over a stage prop or something like that during a show. Oh yeah it's balked on the few lines here and there and i think one time you know. He skipped an entire page in it. You just kinda pick up the pieces and go on but as you know this. The they'll say latest the audience know unless they know the place specifically the scene by scene or whatever they don't know and i and i've been to place of dead i didn't know and i could tell i think is an actor. You just kinda know. I know something screwed up there. No they did something but the covering so you know you. Just pull inform form at that point. Sure yeah think we've all gone up One of the funniest things. I've seen was at trinity rep in angeles korea. Thicker name is just a legendary axe actress. In the new england area. She stopped and she was like kind of looking around and then she gave the line as she just looked. The crisis thought forgotten. She's totally brooke character. Brook in fourth wall. But she's a riot so she got away. Everybody laughs hilarious.

They had to spend the night in the city last night in the hotel across from the studios because of the snowstorm that was rolling and so they decided upon scary scary as a recommendation suggestion to go get lasagna. One of the best lasagna places. In town what they didn't know was they're going to have to walk at least an hour round trip in a snow storm blizzard. Until you you stupid. What are you doing well when we made the plan or well. When i made the plan it wasn't that bad of an idea because there was no snow on the ground right so we had to make the reservation to pick up the food but then as the snow started. I realized this is pretty bad. I called the restaurant and asked if they delivered and unfortunately they didn't do delivery so we had to go pick it up and it was a long long. That's a long walk even when it's sunny and it's so you decide to do it a blizzard so if you watch the video the video is kind of funny. I called their donner party experience because they stopped halfway in eight two. There's legs that's another story so follow scotty. B z scotty. B z z. Scotty sorry okay. So this is where scary is going to drop the name of the restaurant because i know him like the back of my hand. Scary go ahead. I won't do that okay. People you're about to guessing. But i will say this. I was minding my own business and all had done was dropped nate an email saying. Look the lasagna place. I've been telling you about with the awesome anya the deliver and he and that was it and then an hour later. I get a text from illness. You're a whole to me. What's your renee hall. You're sending these guys out in a blizzard for lasagna. And i'm like. I didn't send them out. I clearly set nate an email that said that they deliver so i don't know what went wrong translations find hysterical that i'm getting blamed for something that ought did was was let the guy know that. Hey you're you're staying in a hotel tonight. What they needed to do last night they needed to go to a deli. A half a block away get get a ham and cheese sandwich and call it a night. There was right next door to pizza place which not to say i love. The lasagna is very good at it was frozen. By the time you got it was cold. It was very cold but it was very good and i would like to go back there at some point when there's no blizzard or just want you have to watch the video because these two no offense to you to There is no there is no. I don't know what to say concerning the sturdiness in their stance and walking in a blizzard. You go there. Are whining and crying. Bitter on elvis. Are you kidding. Yeah i heard him say when the video starts he says. I just fell down so watch the video. You'll love it. I mean it's like too whiny little crying boy did it. I would have abandoned that immediately on. No it was too expensive. We had to go to show them. How rugged man manly men they are neighboring ends scotties wearing stilettos or something anyway. It was kind of fun. Yeah it was the video. See the pain you'll see. The pain is great lasagna. Scary was absolutely right but you do it on a more clear day. Maybe yeah you know. What if you're waking up in florida or anywhere that didn't have a winter storm or blizzard last night. God bless ya. It's one of those things where you love to see it. It's so beautiful when you wish.

Are they really going to get food in this. They are i. Can i also say something. Scott he was like. I love walking. I want to walk around like okay. I'll pick a place that's far away you'll get to walk. We'll get some good food. And then he started snowing others too far. This is what if you see the video i mean. I don't know if you guys were putting on a show you look like you were miserable yearly. You need someone to talk to you. Need like a saint bernard one of those whiskey things around its neck to off snow patrol with that said again followed follow z. Scotty be on instagram.

They also reported a peek concurrent viewership of forty six million viewers and over 1 billion total hours watch over the entire course of the tournament e Sports viewership can be confusing to track given the difference between a streaming platforms track viewers and how TV networks do so. So Riot and Activision Blizzard brought in Nielsen to provide the average minute audience or am a stack the stat is directly comparable to other he's dead. Events who use AMA and to traditional sports events and their TV ratings any sports Activision Blizzard's announced AMA for the OverWatch League finals was 2.9 Million globally. That's just a little bit over 10% of what world's received. It's no wonder o w l team owners are in conversations to get partial refunds from a Beyond those lofty team by ends, but worlds was also higher than most traditional sports events as well. The 2020 MLB World Series saw an average of about ten million viewers per game. So about half of League of Legends world. The NBA finals were even worse averaging about 7 and 1/2 hours per game. It should be said that the World Series was in line with previous historical averages while the 2020 NBA Finals was an anomaly only seeing about half of the viewership. We saw over the five finals before it off other events of League of Legends world's beat included the NHL finals, which was at two million viewers and gulps the Masters at about six million viewers. There are only a small handful of sporting events drawing more viewers than League of Legends at home. Point Wimbledon Tennis is about 28 million viewers the Superbowl sits around a hundred million viewers every year and then the Champions League finals which neared five hundred million viewers back in 2019. I believe a bunch of other soccer events are probably over that number as well, but I didn't go through all the regional leagues. This does not include events that happen every four years like the Olympics the soccer World Cup or the Cricket World Cup, which are all well overly of Legends as well. Still you can see why league is attracted so much attention and brought in so many Brands. It's in really lofty company with numbers like this. It's all first episode of the Esports minute. If you want more Esports content, we publish a new episode of the game or hour or Chris pocket interviews former NFL running back Arian Foster. A lot of fantasy football fans will remember when Arian Foster broke onto the scene with a couple record-setting years back in the early part of this decade.

I laid to feel your says an introduction bloodless most absolutely i think i think thank you for having me here and it's been long coming but i wanted to kind of chess insights on sleep it off myself. I do. I am a i would say. A software guy turned sports psychologists mental conditioning coach. And i've been in the field right now for close to san whoa trails close. Nearly twenty plus years now the holding has an alchemy from being a software percent spoke psychology person and how suffer has been an integral part had out on the psychology side of things. That's pretty much my stuff and you know and then Been working a lot of Cricketers Tennis players and davidson is pretty much named on the sports of things and also on the industrial side of things that have been working closely with material management companies and helping them out on the leadership coaching side of things and also the organizational development along with in a how with the hr side about how psychologists helps and again how software to us has out in you know making changes and you know into development and also on the redo a lot of a lot of lenses and how data is a data warehousing can call it that has been a significant part in athletes are development. That's pretty much that there's a big enchilada but so we like to try to break it down as much as possible. I think If i can now safely say you must be the first guest innovative podcast. Who had such a baby expedients across different industries from being software. I know you would up project management of that shed. What led you into psychology ethics. Psychology has been an integral part. Like you know because i was I used to play a lot of tennis in college. And be it in my Bachelor's masters but also you know like i grew up and sport has been an integral part of me. Obviously when you lose especially new sports you knew the lar- so using orleans has an impact on on your on your psyche. South always intrigued by the psychology of things in the bag was a rations book reader so he went fascinating lot of box bar what colleges and kicked on the nfl believe it. I was thinking that just fate and why losing and then From there that journey was part of always there as in the back of my mind but then obviously you you go into engineering and on you go into that aspect of life and sport is also an integral part for me that the psychology was always lingering behind in my in my mindset and even in in walk and think when i was doing product management quality assurance it was always coming down locked to a your soft skills. And you're obviously where you have to because you're not just beaming with deliverables. But he also dealing with with people and how that how psychology plays such a such a big there I think that was so it helped me immensely there but at the same time it was also challenge to kind of like because sodas always about to woman's and you obviously like what you give is what you get a hit. It was more about learning to push the right kind of buttons especially people. It's what person push that's gonna help them. Perform that was a very unique challenge on the software side of things. In sport it is comparatively a lot more easier. Because it's there's lots of hardness stewart. I think i think that made a for me to pursue Shift from project management of this. It's still the same the essence or the principles behind. It are still the same. But i guess the obviously the methods and the processes behind odd. And that's that's where. I was churning between the two and And found a way. I know it's like talk to explain it. At some point you find a we do Gel between and i still do a lot of consulting work on that front.

Esports Match Fixing
"Was an article from abc dot net in australia. And it was east sports regulator says. There's been a very significant upturn. In match-fixing the article goes on to say they quote fanatic. That few sports teams have achieved the the successive fanatic. It sponsor this global brand and supposedly That while the audiences in australia free sports have increased that there are indications that there is a lot of match-fixing going on at tournaments in the country. And you know this is because there's greed. I guess and people are betting under the table. I'm not sure you know the the they talk about how they receive allegations about one hundred of them every single day to this organization called the e sports integrity commission. Or whatever. that's worth i. I don't know william if you've even heard of them but I good name like to be fair. Like i think that's a good name to have for your organization. And i probably know what they do so but just to put that hundred number into context that hundred allegations every day they say if you look at a sport like cricket they have four to six match fixing investigations annually and an in terms of investigations sports. They had fourteen and that was in a span of three months. And so they think there's a lot of match-fixing going on. I'm curious what you guys think of. This is is this just anecdotal and it's people who lost to are complaining like any sports. These are just allegations. I don't know how many of them that are investigated. The turned out to be true. But match-fixing i would argue is easier in east sports than in traditional sports. Do we think it's running rampant. Well actually can. I call it. Can i start with comment. There's actually a really good chat from chris coins in this as i think there's a really strong incentive problem right now which is like if you're a semi professional pro you just don't earn a lot of money and it's such an unveiled marquette. It's super easy to if that article i think if you keep going talks about actually a pro game. Who's betting on himself right. Yeah played semi pro. Ceus go player man. Who was betting on his own matches. yes he claims. I'm betting on myself to win but like you can earn a lot money betting herself better yourself to lose like a good way to do it. Also the article also quotes him. Saying sorry william that he had been offered two thousand dollars to throw matches people. Who are betting on the matches like it actually number just number alone. Two thousand dollars. I think this goes to chris's point. You know as east sports become more professional and the salaries go up. You have more structure. This problem does sort of fix it. Fixed itself need you know Organizations like this sports your integrity commission. You need a gambling operators to be cognizant of this you know the data providers to to flag it when things didn't come up but you know if you're making five million dollars a year someone comes to you and says hey to grand you throw it was mass. You literally laughing. You just don't do it because the numbers it's not work right. So i i do think as professionalized. It's our you know higher. It does take care of itself to some extent You know and we're also talking about. We're going east boards. There's a ton of different we Cra said you know. Some of them are in china. Some of them aren't professional. Is you know when you look at traditional sports. If we were talking about some random soccer he you know in russia. There's probably a lot of fraud that goes on there but we're not talking about. It was look at the. You know the allegory too. Big judicial sources. I let me just push back a bit. Jeff like if you're saying it's a matter of time and growth and growth in the salaries of the players right. wouldn't that also mean there's growth In terms of east sports betting in the volume of bedding and the the dollars that are at stake and things like that and therefore you might get a person who's betting hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars on on key matches who has an incentive now to go to a player and say. Yeah take a dive. Here's a million bucks. The risk of of the players still becomes. It doesn't become worse. Ic- your your point is is well the the point where where i was going with it just initially off when i think chris is pointing is like the high end stuff. There's integrity there's enforcement. It's getting safer but for these semi pro players. You can still bet on them. They're still listed right. You know a lot of places but the incentives are so strongly considered to cheat. Because it's difficult to live off the you know the the unreliable winnings anyway i think said i do think there's a reason why the betting is on the up tickets. The it's a e. Sports is on the uptick right so like you would expect. As more people play the sport more people cheat like it's not shocking right. that's one but two is the incentive to cheat. Have come up because ten years ago. No one would better thing. He sports now all of a sudden. There's betting and stuff like that. So the reality is you have a growing market and a growing bedding market dot. The number of cases of cheating will increase. And i think it's up to the industry to address it right like it's also relatively unaddressed. Problem in the industry. That's the third thing i'd say like there's very limited enforcement so it really like. How do you get caught like like really. How do you get caught if you're playing from home in a match like what somebody's gonna come to your house and

The box of daylight story It almost a little bit like silly to do it again. But i felt like it was an important kind of desire kind of story that that gets a gateway for people to to learn about cricket culture. His design depicts raven escaping through the chimney as he is transforming back into human form. It's an exciting and chaotic scene. There are stars stuck in his feathers and the sun is in his mouth. Orel says he believes the decision to include. His art work on a stamp is part of a wider movement for better representation of native stories. I think the usps is sort of in line with everyone else trying to figure out how to enable indigenous people to tell their own stories. And so it's it's just an honor to be able to be a part of that and to represent.

More than a Game: Sports, Race, and Masculinity in Diaspora
"It is so good to see you. Dr garage also known as fan i of from your students that you're quite engaging in hilarious in class a warrior. That's the funniest thing i've ever heard. Actually because i've never heard that hilarious part so there are times where i say he stuff in students know if they should laugh or shouldn't laugh. They wanna laugh but they're not quite sure what to do. And so those moments just the only way and only thing you can do is consume the silence and move onto the next stop assumes. Let's start with your background. Of course you have such an interesting rich history. So please enlighten us. Tell us all about that. So i am the first person nearly hundred and fifty years along the male line in my family who is not ordained christian minister so my father came to the us in nineteen eighty to pursue a phd in theology. And so that was the first moment we came to the us. Kids and i came at age six to boston and in cambridge nineteen eighty celtics. Imagine that era had just started with. Larry bird kevin mchale in addition of my hero robert parish like that was. The team was covered in green than when my dad finished his. Phd is goal was always to go back and work in the colleges in india so we went back but the three years in cambridge set me so far back academically so when i went back i was starting fourth grader. In india there was a basketball court at the college that my dad taught at and nobody played bass while there except for one time during the year when there were intramurals and only faculty played and as a faculty child. People were not letting me play. So when i went back to. India might love of sports. Ashley had a very different type of class and caste aesthetic to it. So most of the kids i started to play with. Were the children of the staff on campus. Folks doing everything from administrative labor to really tough menial ends on labor like cleaning gutters cutting down trees sweeping so their kids became some of my closest best friends and because of that the ways in which sport in india at that point in the late eighties and nineties had a certain castes. Consciousness other than if you played cricket. I grew up playing comedy. Which is you know. South asian game a mix between wrestling and tackle football but really took to playing cricket field hockey and soccer. And when i got a little bit older it became volleyball and everywhere. I went especially in christian communities. There was so much love for sport. And so i might not see it in places at my school. Maybe you know when i was hang out with my hindu-muslim or sick fronts but in the christian community especially on our colleges. There was a strong focus on sport ideas of muscular christianity. That played out in. The west was also playing out in india as well

Shaniqua McClendon, Political Director for Crooked Media
"Geneva Mukundan welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you for having me. So tell me how did you come to work for crooked media because I think that I read that you were doing something completely different before you were working at the Obama Administration. And just kind of on a different path. Yeah. So it's the story. Always, it just was so simple how I got here that it doesn't even make sense but I was in graduate school I started in two thousand sixteen and my whole plan was to get out of politics completely I had been burnt out working on Capitol Hill and you know I just wanted to make some money for once you do not get paid a lot more on the hill. And I started to graduate school in fall of two, thousand, sixteen. So my first semester Donald Trump one and I just knew that. I couldn't get out of politics I felt like I had developed a skill set and I would feel I would go crazy if I was not using it to help get him out of office for years later. So now we're finally for years later. But you know as I was trying to discover what I wanted to do after school I knew I wanted to get a bit away from policy not because I don't like it I love policy but I realized working on the hill that if you don't have the right politicians in place, those policies are never going to be enacted so. You, know I thought. Okay. Where can I go? That will allow me to help elected good elected officials and so I told my friend that I either wanted to work at a media company or a company that had a lot of name recognition and could use their influence to increase civic engagement and so I told her this when she asked me what I wanted to do after school and then she sent me the Political Director job here at crooked and said Oh like this I said like literally this job So I applied to it Have you ever Newsham then after graduation I moved out here to start the job well. It's funny I was listening to you and we kind of the exact opposite kind of path because I was in an industry where it was making money I had a salary and. You know after trump won I decided to change my trajectory there a couple of other steps in between them. Fully in that direction, and now I don't have. So. It is the opposite. The opposite and I was just telling somebody the other day I was like you know we're down to the wire with the election I feel like. I haven't done enough and feeling guilty and they're like, well, you Kinda gave the job as we go. Yeah. That's right. I did do a big thing. What's it like there always wondered you know cricket media started it feels like the energy. There's kind of like the early days of a startup like twitter or something then skateboards and football tables instead anything like that. That is funny. You say that you now I only spent one day in the old office but. Office, was nothing like. Well know I don't know what those startups look like ours had the bathroom was in the kitchen how? God, and they could not use the bathroom. Guys were recording because you would hear the toilet slash in the. Studio. I heard stories about about mice, and so it was definitely like we are just getting our bearings but you know again, I only spent one day there and then we were moving over to the new office and our new offices. Beautiful. All now working from home you know we were starting to like finally fill it up. Yeah. It's just you know it's a really chill live I mean it's Chili's you can be working on politics.

So you know we you know we watch things together. Some things are funny and tragic at the same time like watching trump give a speech but then you know We all watch the cavenaugh hearings together and you know not no parts of that were fun or entertaining it in any way. But I think being able to do all those things and you know they're important to our work but just being able to do all those things together has been great and specifically for me I'm used to being on the East Coast with people who? Lived in DC for seven years with people who care deeply about politics and that is not. You know what's happening in La at large, it's It's an entertainment industry town. So it's nice to have that space at work where we can all come together and Kinda obsess about these things

Somehow it's because the song was written by Jonathan Geffen set to music by Yoni Rafter and sung by them along with Ud Ravitz Giddy Gov Davi Broza the same five artists. Who Forty two years ago.

What they made was magic and it was and it is part of the magic comes from the fact that the songs are all as kids. See things with all. That's lovely about that and also underneath the bouncy tunes and four part harmonies with the worry in confusion and melancholy that we somehow always forget are just as much a part of Childhood Yonathan. Geffen more reads and sings. The song Yeesh Yellow Jabber Shallow. There's a kid whose father and it starts. There's a kid whose father is a doctor and there are kids whose fathers are sick.

We make no apology for classical quotations at the universities cricket and scholarship very generally all he goes together when in eighteen thirty six we played victoriously on the side of Oxford Against Cambridge seven out of our eleven were classmen and it is doubtless only to avoid invidious distinction that heads versus heels as was one. One suggested has failed to be an annual university match. Though the series Studio Orem those put to school late would not have of a chance we extract the following quote in a late convocation holding it. Oxford may thirtieth in eighteen fifty one it was agreed to a fix the university seal to a power of attorney authorizing the sale of two thousand pounds three percent for the purpose of paying for and in closing certain allotments of land in Cowley common used as cricket grounds rounds by members of the university in order to there being preserved for that purpose and let to the Central University cricket clubs in such manner as my hereafter up here expedient end quote from all this we argue that on the authority the of ancient and the experience of modern times cricket once mind as well as matter and every sense of the word a good understanding ending.

Soon will fail <hes> the good that ball the bat was more out of the perpendicular. Now the bowler alters his pace good a dropping ball overreached and all but a mistake now a slower pace case still with extra twist. It's furiously to lag too soon. leg-stump is grazed and bail off you see. Sir says the veteran turning round an old player who knows what is and what is not on the ball alone can can resist all temptations that lake balls involve young players are going there round of experiments and are too fond of admiration and brilliant hits whereas it is you're upright straight players that worry a bowler twenty two inches of wood by four and a quarter every inch of them before the stumps hitting or blocking is rather disheartening but the moment a a man makes ready for a leg hit only about five inches by four of what can cover the wicked so leg hitting is the bowlers chance cutting also for a similar reason if there were no such thing is like hitting we should see a full bat every time the man steady on his legs and only one thing to think of and what a task a bowler would have that was. Mr Wards Pie play good for something to the last first rate straight play and free leg hitting seldom last long together when once exalting resulting in the luxurious excitement of a leg volley the muscles are always on the quiver to swipe round and the Bowler sees the bat raised more and more or across wicked so also it is with men who are yearning for a cut forming for the cut like forming for leg hit and I and almost the idea of those hits coming across the mind set the muscles off straight play and give the bowler a chance chance there is a deal of headwork in bowling once make your batsman set his mind on one hit and give him a ball requiring acquiring the contrary and he is off his guard in a moment and with that rather curious stream of consciousness passage.

"We shall presently show the word cricket in Russia lay as early as the year sixteen eighty. A late author has very sensibly certainly remarked that cricket could not have been popular in the days of Elizabeth are we should expect to find allusions to that game as to tennis football football and other sports in the early poets but Shakespeare and the dramatists who followed he observes are silent on the subject as to the silence of the early poets and dramatists on the game of cricket and no-one conversant with English literature would expect to find it accepted some casual allusion or illustration in an old play this silence we can confirm on the best authority authority what if we presume to advance that the early traumatised one and all ignore the very name of cricket. Ah How bold a negative so rare are certain old plays that a hundred pounds have been paid by the Duke of Devonshire for a single copy of few loose and soiled leaves and shall we pretend to have dived among such hidden stores so we are so fortunate as to be favored with the assistance of the Reverend John Mitford and are loving cousin John Payne Collier to English scholars most deeply versed in early literature and no bad judges of cricket and since these these two scholars have never met with any mention of cricket in the early dramatists nor any author earlier than sixteen eighty five there is is indeed much reason to believe that cricket is a word that does not occur in any English author before the Year Sixteen Eighty five.

Bust week has been all about world test championship which we had discussed for many of our listeners who had asked us questions about world test championship kinship v have had created a very detailed episode about de pointing system for example one listener astor's a question in which was schillinger after winning just one test got sixty points while australia even after winning when maj and even a draw would not even breath at sixty so all the reasons behind that and everything else we have coveted in dead very of detailed episode so oh please do check out that episode so let's discuss all the matches <hes> that are going on right now. Currently there are three matches of with respect to world test championship that are ongoing. <hes> between i is ashes of goes then there is india's tour of west indies indies and then there is of goes news in store of sri lanka. I up the heart england was his ashes england. Was australia australia as excuse me. This is the desmet three out of the five test matches which had been planned first match was won by australia second match was a draw and now as as of now the four is going on of this this match and addie lunch break australia. Sorry england are two hundred and thirty eight four four. So how did this match go about. I up australia batted first and scored one hundred and seventy nine runs which as that women seemed very self bar score <hes> good innings from david warner who had had consecutive failures in the previous test matches they can isn't <unk> achikzad benign night marcus labuschagne knee seventy four and spina. He has been a good fine for them. Of course he was their top scorer in the domestic sheffield shield but uh-huh performing on such a big stage <hes> is another study. He remember to just to remind you guys. He is our our if placement for stephen smith who was injured due to a good bouncer from archer during the second test match he had a he has put suffered from concussion due to which he is out from this this match it'll be interesting to see who the places in the fourth match so bellini's dahran exo who sworn seventy-nine excuse me one seventy nine hundred code but despite to bullying jennifer arthur managed to grab six wickets <hes> it was a big announcement announcement on named the national stage by jove ushered in the test match ended s match arena england while replying had the eligible terrible ebel performance body cut up almost like you seem to be so chattanooga discord only sixty seven runs this was divorced performance and the lowest scores sins in ashes in since nineteen forty eight imagine of the irony of this imagine the sadness of this the highest gooder was jordan lee register wellens bucking it'll igam phone number one for example rubinstein jason roy nine giorgio to kick up don's zito aben stokes eight four five and five so that was a very disastrous performance and at this point the almost almost countered inland out but then this is ashes. You know you can never <hes> this is all filled with drama came to bed. During the second innings they scored two hundred forty six runs again. The title performance was from marcus labuschagne off eight hundred runs. I'm excited to what machine plead smith admit because these two guys are are looks to lose to me that these two are the best players right now in terms of batting for australia and mandy. These guys split together. It will be very exciting england in reply today. Now as i said earlier are two hundred and thirty eight for four the start art didn't look that promising as england. Lou lost their first two wickets very early. On fifteen for two was the school and at that moment we all all were thinking like i it's it's done and dusted for england but then some good betting from ju- route escorting seventy seven of two hundred and five deliveries while jordan scored fifty of one fifty five brought them back and adi lunch on day four ben stokes is not out on thirty two welsh and best to it's not out on.

"With respect to india pissed off home could make it to the finals and then it to the last tour crew <hes> find a way to bed. I in both games so they're going now. Let's move onto. Let's move onto listen questions so we all are hoping that india will make it through to the world cup and we have the trophy here back again. First question of we have from <hes> harsher reicher. Uh who is from go home actually not well so i asked this question to. He asks me he asks us do. Do you think any team from <hes> five to ten like who are on the position five to ten in the world. Cup deserved a different position than they are <music> at my work. I really i mean if you go by nederlander and everything probably no. I think everyone finished the way they deserve to finish. <hes> the other side of the question to me is <hes> like from personal bias point of view whom i would have liked to see finish five or six right. I mean i would've see i would have liked to see <hes> ghanistan finished five and six. That's muslim bias but otherwise otherwise i think they will reflects <hes> each individual teams fortune study accurately all right <hes>. Do you think the rains have played any apart in that positioning in between new zealand and pakistan probably yes but for the other games you know i think most other teams missed out on a game so it was kinda for equal is a <hes> for most of the team so i. I don't think so i did hear about bangladesh to bondi. Show are on the position. The way they have played is reflecting in that position knowing actually lighting bangala this have been the most consistent consistent by things had in the world cup of look at how the better i think that that apart and a combination of lower middle order actually been much better than even india in some sense but they like the bowling to carry them through outside of mustafa send made the art occasions. I think yeah intake intake info <unk> for bangladesh. I think this document is much more than where they finished. I think they have shown the brand of cricket deeply and in the next four years i think they're going took a lot better as when people start taking them seriously they have not yet condemn studiously so a nixon goes out to sil- <hes> the question is what is it it is asked by <hes> divert so the question is why did russia con have had a bad word go. What are you say on this much was expected from delhi one of the newer <unk> because his promises to not under according to the beach <hes> minneapolis is his recreation his bullying positions ethnics is capable of greenwood in every match but what what has gone wrong for russia hunt sounding disturbing it would he has performed he has <unk> boilers which has been around for the best <unk> has been around game has performed as the begging has completely <hes> letdown afghanistan at many of the times of afghanistan gps saudi. Many of the <unk> install has defended <unk> invented input. I in back <hes> they have not even gone bust who fifty at least a lot lot on the mine of apollo doesn't matter what quality there who so when you work in crewe hundreds and one of these pantelis you're defending does does and losing the games it in on the mind of his mind be just not india's so at some point and a world cup in associ- of workup in england in the spin is not much of unfunded so you will they you are defending even more a ah management has changed so i think so that leaves surrounding the surrounding him as affected his performance rather than the cheese or his own concedes all right all right so while we are gone stanfield move onto the third question which is asked by our listener article on swale. This question goes out out to <hes>. The question is was of ghanistan screwed over by the aboard well. That's that's very rude sort of but what would you say might i i mean i think certain extent yes. Possibly we saw so many things happening in the backdrop right. Now captains being changed. Senator who did that is now under scrutiny. They're fast bowler. Send back home for disciplinary measures now. There is an investigation going around <hes> multiple times in all he has had disciplinary issues in the single world cup. It did not look like you know <hes> afghanistan team. Which has this unity the and this joyful nature playing cricket. I mean yeah it looked. It looked like you know they have not having fun so but the way they were playing in the qualifying defined world copy knows. It certainly didn't look the same team yeah exactly exactly if that's what they're trying to make you know it's like many have said in the passionately to easy to become number one but it is much more difficult to stay at the top so right now. The challenge for gunnison starts now. I mean how are they going. Maintain or improve wonder standards that they have set for younger teams newer team so that is something that will be looking forward to in the next <hes> forty years before the next world cup okay. I think the question was villa answer. The question is if scotland and ireland were a part of this world cup a a round robin. What would we have food. We have seen differently. The question is asked by squad jefferson and i think additive will be the best to answer this one. Yeah i think i would have loved to see both those sides especially given the fact there disrobing a home world cup so i remember in one thousand nine hundred nine edinburgh <hes> the amsterdam holding a few games in nine hundred ninety four remember. I think scotland island especially has been always wanting obliterate automate <hes> just a few weeks before this world cup start there'd been the english isn't actually began. I use capping linda if you'd have been but and we're not we're not talking of england winning. They were being front runners for the <unk> and if you just go less than brennaman back scotland beating linden and again like scotland at home scored at t sixty two to the eighth or something against england this berlinger greg did round robin format of what would you think like with scotland and irony betcha sir but but if you had dreaded teams they wouldn't have gone for the round-robin format to begin with so then he'd been like two groups of seven or six or whatever then either super cindy's sort of essays ladies and gunston deadwood island in scotland <hes> put you would you think would have still been like of gunnison and of these or would help them better. Oh i think ireland afghanistan would have done better because don't forget where she has been in good form in this yet. They'll beat any vendor toll mandate grown grow no indices against <unk> which is not a meeting feed. These are going to spend a lot more international exposure these <unk> scotland ireland who do not get a lot of games against these big sites so i i am a big gate of her <unk> actually be good way to cope in in terms of the number of teams and not a huge fan of this around open for me but so i would of ideally they should have stuck to the ninety nine two thousand three or four months where you have google of seven or eight and then a super six stage that aren't sides more sides the exposure and also taken away the flu elements or you'll also given sites five or six games to go through so desperately charlie. I don't think they would have done better than afghanistan enriching this who who to be fair to them have had to your four close games. Both of those sites <hes> yeah so i who onto next question to this question is asked by glimpsed santiago sale a._b._d. Inclusion have made different stew south africa position seats so moro for moral question than a performance of question you binny's performance you alerts <hes> he he had formed in some matches or he has been performing opera merely as it's not out of foam form or his his performance as comedown then he has since he has retired is more of a moral question if emission solution should've been there on a <unk> infusion of meter difference because the bliss which has released him or drying replaced missing since he's <hes> it's yemen is like resi recluse a have you on a lot walk along with undesirable bill but deepak you on a lot of sense of osteo of a year city. He had to hire a sport in south of uncertainty own village. So this is served the dead. He had just four hours before a forty eight hours. Before a this election was supposed to be done and asked if he would be a part of the issue of of an all eighteen so point coming into the thing thanks so much much more negative been sprayed into the year and so you're seeing it wouldn't have had much impact on the position all right so one last question that we have and <hes> this goes to work and i think it's pretty funny and it is somewhat ironic cassville alford readout to question. No this is by v._j. Blessed the question is what would happen if i'm but derided except iceland proposal and let listener who have asked this is v._j. Prasada a bit ironic. I mean the thing is i think we i one thing is for sure will end up having more fun on twitter thought i don't know what will happen on the cricketing friend but certainly certainly <hes> knowing the iceland cricket handle repeal and <hes> knowing who's <hes> tendency towards humor. I mean lean it would have been a great week <hes> after it and for me. That's i think what the what the the question. The person wasn't who else question means. Is that it be. Would it mean something for the iceland or philip. Just be namesake. No i mean bob well. You know if he kind of plays so let let let let's let's. Let's <hes> you know. Save you know the the thing is length is not <hes> associated team yet so is lend if you look at the list of teams which are associated countries. Iceland is not one of them <hes> cricketing club. <hes> you know as say okay so did i do probably goal were there and <hes> you know help out with coaching and some you know those kind of things but <hes> and knowing that so you have the i._p._o. Going on in india and other match other tournaments around the world arrived or would not a offer because he has enough like four or five years is what millions to make <hes> and and the upside i mean you know it's important to know that whatever i was suggesting was a joke. It was not a serious uh-huh yeah so <hes> there is no way you know <hes> that was a c._d._s. Often that is no way even if it was offered on monday night out of a cannon up at this stage he does scotty elevator in all he has plenty of europe's of peel and a apron around the world for him if be allows him to play which i think they were because you writing is also outlaying outside india yeah yeah yeah so. I think we have reached the end of today's episode suit. Thank you thank you for taking the time to talk to me today and special thanks to a mike and tale for taking time and talking to me today and pre reading the episodes in answering some of this new questions now.

"That's that's an excellent point rate so maiocco <hes> with respect to the indian as i said earlier we are all a bit twitted about the middle order as vela's <hes> spinners being hit because of the chateaux boundaries that we have seen in some matches previously <hes> what do you think should veep go with the someone like nature and maybe two seamers n <hes> en someone from <unk> deep artificial judicia should be kept <unk> out. No i am focusing on geneva is because he has the ability to get over with the always very quickly before a <unk> best benko so much. Thank you oppose who to call it that so do you. <hes> is helpful in this emmys or do you think we should stick with what we have been going. Initially i mean i have. I have a hunch advert advert. Quality is going to play a radio so thing is <hes> whitcomb deepen charlie no both of their biological rhythm borders and for some reason <hes> board would these borders have not found there that we had used to seeing them have so <hes> in that aspect of <hes>. I don't think we're going to play. Both of them are home to pick. I i think i think <hes> we are going to play <hes> because <hes> khalid played this particular game he did not do that. Well and i feel shahal has ability a bit of a better big game temperament that leap glebe is like a much more than i mean he he kind of gets destroyed once in a while but a highly kind of you hit them for six fine with it. <hes> i believe our own to happen but i think too highly is going to play and not leap <hes> i think <hes> as as you are correctly pointed out to play trees emerged shami included <hes> i would just go back to some of the positives regiment we focus on the negative continue on one of the positive i have seen is hardly find is actually a has actually become a reliable fifth bowler for india. Yeah i mean i didn't. I didn't expect a lot from you. We have seen him consistently. Give those eight ten overs and some weeks when needed. I mean agreed that all as we could have not been pretty he pretty much has taken too because like it takes in indians ideal games where he probably the batsmen tried to hit him out and they get caught at the boundary lines but having said that you know he has kept one night <hes> he has followed the plans correctly and i think i think i would i would appreciate the way he has bowled so that is what the positive that he can be at the border and no going back to the point i was making i i mean the thing is yeah you know in may is not built for three thirty three forty. Jay's <hes> their best hope is starting up to seventy to eighty and chasing that art while batting. I <hes> get near three hundred three hundred hundred under twenty and then put pressure through bowling so i would knock suddenly the expect the middle order to do something drastic in the last two games. I do not see any centrally. Are you know very quickfire eighty ninety coming out of the five six or seven bats. I don't think that is going to happen so that brings me back to the question i mean i think i would go with jadeja into in terms of the nicotine because how getters i'm keke that has not really hit their stride that will right and i think he's slight. He's falling out of favor with the <hes> starting eleven in dumps of feeling and also bowling because we all expected him to be a good <hes> sixth bullen get folder four five hours out but he's not doing that so i would rather play jared entered of him <hes> in mainly because we'll have a better feeling there as well. Yes yes victor continuing on that point syle my question to you is who should india play with respect to the question which we are going on <hes> specially kid shuttle on it should be geeky offficial bringing some surprise and introduce my anchor while on top has been according to me there has been some problems for india in this world cup one which has been a bitch rectifying the last according to one <hes> who is a new thing so the <unk>. That's it again joe. Okay a a certain point but again just give them who kicks so that has been stood up program for them in the selection that you executive will come at the point <hes>. I don't think the middle order is a middle order. Batsman are taking individually inform performing. I think the yes election this. This election has been a problem for a while for easter year <unk> docking in your us india fine of the number to assess a certain.
