"Show from BBC Radio four. Hello, this week we're talking to Dan walker as he makes his move from BBC breakfast TV to channel 5 drive time news. What made him go? And as the big broadcasters gear up for the jubilee celebrations, we'll be finding out what it's like to cover the royal family with the BBC's Johnny diamond and ITV's Chris ship and asking, is there any Roman royal reporting for criticism? Should there be? Laura clancy, author of running the family firm, is also here. But we'll start with Dan walker, one of the big beasts of breakfast TV. He spent 6 years fronting the nation's most popular early morning television show. Those 3 a.m. alarms must feel like just a bad dream now because on Monday, he starts his new role at channel 5, Dan, welcome to the program. I guess the obvious question is, why did you decide to make the move? Well, it had nothing to do with the 3 o'clock starts, although I am, even though I stopped doing breakfast now for a couple of weeks. I am still waking up occasionally at that time in the morning. I think it takes a while to sort the body clock out. I think it was just, if I'm honest, Katie, just opportunity. I think channel 5 came in at a chat and sort of said in a nicest possible way, we want you. And they said, we don't want you to just do the news. We'd like you to come and have a set number of hours every year of your contract to come and make TV for us. And I've got a creative role in coming up with what that TV is. And you speak to a lot of people who work in television on this program and everybody who works in TV and probably who listens to this will know that those opportunities don't come around very often. So you couldn't have done that other BBC, the BBC One offering you something like that. It wasn't a case of me going to a BBC and saying this and channel 5 of said this, what have you got? I never did that. I've been really open and honest with the BBC in the whole time I've been there really. And I just felt that there are opportunities at channel 5 that maybe I wouldn't have got at the BBC. And I think it's also a really interesting time in the industry generally and channel 5 is a fascinating place to be at the minute..

"Facing alley. You got chooser. Kershaw dan walker bueller walker and may is out. He's he's injured reward suit dare. It's honestly i think otherwise. They wouldn't be a fight but out of every team. I've watched there's only one team that's truly truly terrifies me as far as the astros and that's boston. Oh you mean in and out now getting to. But i honestly i still put the astros best boston. Yeah the ale in the nl. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be the dodgers again. I've said her i've said that. From the beginning of the season when the astronauts started playing. Well i said that from the beginning that you're finally going to get that rematch. It's what dodger fans want. It's astros fans want absolutely right now. Both teams are playing to the level of giving the fans a really good series. I'm not saying it wouldn't be a fight. Tony see. It goes games every every manipulation. My mind can do. There's no way it doesn't go to seven games. only reason i say that is because the astros beecher. They beat their entire pitching staff on a regular basis. And so i. I think Taxes well did you guys see the joy doubt as you said something about houston. Oh my god through. Don't miss joe you can say you wanted have prince basically been proven that the dodgers retreat cheating the same time. We were doing the multiple accusing. But but like you say josh. 'cause you brought up a good point not too long ago It's part of baseball on tonic devices on person. That's where it crosses over from just being gamesmanship into cheating. Hangs which never got confirmed at josh. Just for an athlete has never been proving. It is a rumor. That's all there is to it. In is never been proven that one player wore a buzzer on his cracking jokes about it all the time. The astros do they almost all time lows and that makes it. I don't think he would do is go. I talk about how the astros were playing on it right before the all-star break the game before the rate pulled off his shirt dirt at martine maldonado opened up his shirt like in the fifth inning of that. Same game just like because they were planning the yankees in houston in houston. Rub it in the yankees base as they were dominating them that's been the morse code things. No the playoffs drop out during a regular season game. It doesn't mean anything of all. Look i'm not wearing anything. The buzzer was ever. Actually the thing don't really wasn't i agree. I think that was just you know tinfoil hat conspiracy theory. You know rob manfred type. People just feel bullcrap. But i've really click on what said he made a very valid point. Yes knowing whether or not to swing can make a difference but you still have to make contact with the ball and aspirins vaki. Only tonight cheating and his new year's day cheating is not just baseball. Any sport any professional team. That how much money is in it now. They're gonna find any way they can get an edge where they can right. It's prevalent in the nfl. In the last fifteen years in there has been baseball. Deflator the bow. Nagel and dan knows that one in anybody he knows that more than anybody because in patriots beat eight speakers no deflated balls made them win forty. Just that little part. My argument would houston in that series. You look at the yankees. Were in that series. They played like shit there. They pitching well in. It wasn't just yes. The astros might had signs. But it's like the guy said you still have to swing. You still have the main contact. You still have the plate the place that ball in play to a spot that it's not going to get you automatic out by la to you. Go and look at that. Sealy's la could hit worth a shit next series. Now they're big. I went i think. What was it three three and twelve in that series and people can talk shit all they want but their teams fail. That's all the route to it. You can try a now. The doctors did not say in that series is ultimately one of the reasons they went after. That's yep agree just having obviously what's up go ahead good time great. Were you saying. Oh look it's count the fact that yes they have to hit the ball but once you get once you get a fastball sign and you say you're up there looking fastball and you know fastballs coming little easier to the head of the better. I agree with you but if you're a good hitter one at bat you figured out. What the fastball signal is anyway. Not even looking at your coach. If you're good hitter you go up there. You step into the box that pitcher one or two evacuate figuring out or you start to see tells like you're on the senate in the dugout watching. You're watching that pitcher legitimize a good player since there in the dugout and watches. The pitcher tries to find barrels. So he can tell what's coming even if it's not signs deal it's still. They're still trying to figure it out. And what and what is that part of the game. It's universities it's more more prevalent. Mlb is because buzzed. Ceiling and rob manfred have consistently punished for getting caught. Not for what you did. And that's why we're all talking about it. Because the punishments you know. The process of the punishments aren't what they should be average for the Oakland a.'s where ninety days Jesus eighty seven. I mean he walked all right. We've got again dan. Dan is preaching all right. Guys we gotta go to break when we come back. We'll have tony. Set me too hard. Would you listen to this show right. Here aus- rings. We'll be right back Around take.

"I'll tell you what it is and Steve, give me your reaction to it in a minute. Steve Bertrand host the Chicago afternoon news here on WGN Radio. He'll do it again today. Well, if you're popping them up for me, right? Steve. We were talking about the list that you were talking about Chicago magazine's 50 top news stories of the last 50 years. I think the blue Goya vich at 19 could be in the top 10. I think we will talk about that one for years to come more than George Ryan more than many of the other walker. Dan Walker's Who We missing four of seven. We were in a row there, Walker. Ryan. Bilbo Blagojevich and you know it's too bad. We remember all of your governors that have been jailed for 1970, though this is 50 years, so that's the problem with some of the things that I'm thinking or missing on this list. But April 3rd 1973 Motorola unveils the first portable cell phone, right. How cool is that? New. That's the one you're going when you said that. Yeah, I think that's true. That's a big one. I mean, that's changed the world. It comes in just behind a couple behind Jane Byrne being elected and one behind the City Council, ratifying the parking meter deal. Yeah, I throw that one down a little bit. That that was December of 2008. And that's the center because it still takes us off. I don't you know, Chicago has a lot of economic problems, and that's one of them. But I don't know that it's So singular that it needs to be above, say the cell phone being developed, invented distributed. In fact, it was not long after that, April 3rd 1973 unveiling of the first portable cell phone that the first recorded crash of somebody while on their cell phone occurred. And it was while that person was on w. Gm. Yes. On the Ellen Ed show. Somebody was calling with Alan and he's talking to going. It was so cool. Once upon a time. It was so cool to hear somebody talking on the radio while in an automobile. Imagine that, In fact, we used to call him automobiles, then and great big brick phone. Yes, it was, if it might have even had to have been hardwired into the car. Maybe it was a brick phone. Well, because we're not. Are we talking portable phones their cell phones here, this portable cell phone because originally a lot of the cell phones that you would get Would kind of be Aftermarket installed essentially into your car, right? It was residency. I think they were still sell technology. They relied on Selves. Ah, yeah, obviously, Yes. So I guess that is a portable phone, but you wouldn't carry it around in your pocket. Anyway. So then somebody for with Alan, Ed, you had this coming and they go. What? What happened goes I was just in a anak student, and it was like, Whoa! And at the time that seemed novel. Now we just snow. It's you know, stupid, avoidable and you shouldn't be doing that It was before it was against the law or whatever. So that's um, number 25 on the list. I know I look up number 38 march 1977 Frankie Knuckles makes his debut at the warehouse. I don't know what that means. I didn't either. It's the debut of House music. The debut of House music. Yeah, so that's when house music was created, You know, like in clubs and things like that. Yeah, that. Wow. I mean, I thought that's what house music meant. But so that has a Chicago debut, and Frankie Nicholls is credited with that in March of 77. Just behind that is the black corruption winning the Stanley Cup. Yeah. God bless the Blackhawks. We love him here. I'm happy They're on the list. I'm I'm a little surprised to see them ahead of things like, I don't know. Lakeshore drive being rerouted or the American Airlines Flight 1 91 disaster in 1979. I mentioned things that you thought should be under that aren't what? What are they well, so there's always a big one. Well, it's it's a big media town, and there are only three broadcasts or broadcasters mentioned. Siskel and Ebert debut, IRA Glass and Steve Dahl blowing up the disco records Sox park. So okay. But I thought well, how is Orient Samuelson's first day on WGN? Not there. But that was more than 50 years ago. Orient such an institution. He doesn't even qualify for this list. In fact, I thought Wally Phillips first show should could certainly have been seen as a turning point in Chicago radio. But that was more than 50 years ago, too, so It's on my list. What's missing on yours? 9 11. Um, you know, I mean, when the city essentially emptied its downtown on that morning, all the metro trains came in loaded people up, and it just was loading Go. To get everyone out of the city center. People were watching Sears Tower on Do all of that. You know, it's it's a national story, but so is the stay at home order from Governor Pritzker. So I don't think it would be disqualified. I was kind of surprised that that wasn't on the list. Splitting the atom is on this textures Mind but that predated 50 years ago. So otherwise, if you said all times Chicago news events, you know, splitting the atom is in the top. That's higher than the black Hawks. Winning the Stanley Cup will tell you that. The first one of the third one. Well, that's that's That's sort of the thing, too. I think that the Blackhawks were great for quite a while. I guess you could pick one and say That was incredible. I would say if you just said What's the most important thing to happen to the Blackhawks? In 50 years? It might be them going on TV. I mean, that was this to me the turning point for the franchise. S so that someday you'll win the Stanley Cup. But I think that says important is Yeah. Can I say that, Steve? Maybe we don't even win the Stanley Cup. If they're not on TV, just just don't. I don't know. I mean, I think if you're going in the organization, you could go from the Separation are moving away from the bill works here. A tube to the John McDonough era. Um and then, finally, I had the Columbian Exposition on here. But here again, that's Yeah, even Orient, wasn't it? That's so that that that's more than 50 years ago, But Wrigley Field's first night game number 37 0. Wow. Yeah, I think that's what were you saying? Producer? LF gay See is Is he on this list? Uh, is on the list. Yeah, Why wouldn't I mean some of it's just So it's kind of cool because I've been around here for a long time. Something like I was at the first night game. Um, I was at Pope John Paul's visit. 1979. That was pretty cool. Yeah, right on the list is also Cabrini Green towers demolished and that's number 20 on the list, And that seems to be appropriate to me That's certainly belongs in the top 20 moments in Chicago history. Charlie Trotter opening is three higher. You can argue about that. Then the Sears Tower It's 17 Belushi debuts. Its second city is 16 15 is Don troll Davis's murdered 14 the heat wave of 1995. We mentioned the top 10 interesting list and not bad. All right, Mr. Bertrand will listen to Chicago's afternoon news in a little while. It's just good to talk with you. Thanks, John..

I mean, I think if you're going in the organization, you could go from the Separation are moving away from the bill works here.

Something like I was at the first night game. I was at Pope John Paul's visit. 1979. That was pretty cool. Yeah, right on the list is also Cabrini Green towers demolished and that's number 20 on the list, And that seems to be appropriate to me That's certainly belongs in the top 20 moments in Chicago history.

A little surprising I think like Hannah said, maybe more for the timing of this that it still before the election and she comes out and says, she would challenge the speaker is this is this maybe the you know Chink in the armor for for Speaker Madigan, do you think so? If you mean in terms of him not being reelected speaker. No I. Don't think this will be. something. That will result in a huge groundswell of of Democrats suddenly rejecting Madigan. Will he adjust his operation who knows but if you look at it historically. We've not really had on the democratic side in the house. Any serious. Battles. For the speakership. Probably in.

It continued on until finally like three weeks after the especially was supposed to start under ninety third ballot Redmond finally got enough votes to be. To be speaker and he did with the help of half a dozen Republicans including Lee Daniels, who was the first Republican to break for? and. At the time, the Republican leadership looked at Daniels and they said, you'll never amount to anything you're saying with the Democrats well later on. Daniels became. Speaker of the House. So we've not had. Any real challenges to Mike Madigan in his tenure as speaker. There been instances in fact, the last couple of times who did not vote for him. Voted present. But not a real challenge amounted to him. I suppose, you could see a situation where if there's enough opposition developed, you might see something like nineteen, seventy, five were. Not Kipah with but someone else comes forward To become the ultimate speaker but I don't think that's going to happen what might be more likely is that some of the rules might be changed. To give members more say so in the operations. That's something that happened in in the Senate when they had A. Leadership Battles again back in the seventies. The the upshot was that the rank and file members got more of say so in the operation of the place. Let the start of the program we heard from Governor Jay Pritzker and. Even, after the Speaker had said, you know he's not going to to testify before this Special Investigative Committee Rachel the governor came out this week and said, he thinks that the speaker should reconsider that and actually should sit down and provide some information, provide some answers that it almost sounds like these two are not on the same page. Yeah. I I'd say that that's an accurate assessment I think In the letter that's comedic and released last week he said that he's provided all the information that he believes that he can governor Pritzker I. believe since the a deferred prosecution agreement was released in mid-july has said. We need answers from Speaker Madigan not from you know, a stand in for him. We don't need letters we need him to sit down before this committee and. Enter questions that we all have meeting Pritzker meeting the committee meeting ratepayers I believe. Grant. Pointed to them yesterday and the press conference they had about the subpoenas.

Please tell us something I I think going back to give away I think. Her coming out and GonNa Challenge Speaker Madigan, for this rule that he's held for in all but two years since nineteen, eighty, three I think that is maybe going to inspire others to. Come out and maybe either call format to step down or to continue to put pressure on him to come before the committee and answer questions. That people still feel having been answered the and Hannah, can we read anything into the relationship between PRITZKER and Madigan? For example, you know? I know basically they both probably consider themselves the leaders of Illinois, the Illinois Democratic Party in some way. But what can we read into this by by pritzker making that public statement this week. If, we go back to twenty eighteen or actually even before that The. Lead up to the Democratic primary for governor. Pritzker was. Criticized by Republicans in even I think some other Democrats for. Being quote chosen candidate of the speaker even though the speaker didn't. Actually way in. That we also have. The governor's. The investigation into his property tax deduction via taking out the toilets house. so He'd already marked there. We have no way of knowing whether or not federal investigation has concluded or dropped but they have both had to walk some very strict lines because of those things in especilly the timing of the speaker getting speaker in his operation getting tied up in the me too movement in early twentieth eighteen continuing on, they've had to stay in their own lanes and luckily for the governor he's Independently, wealthy would be a it understatement in. So unlike some. Democratic governors in the past. The governor has no need for the speakers money in fundraising US. But you know. The governor has had to keep his distance because that you know.

"Hours or so saying, Hey, man, Thompson wasn't you know Thompson? He was the guy that signed in the law. The annual 3% cost of living adjustment for public employees. Pensions Edgar to so they share some of the blame for us being so far over our skis. I get that back to a Mr Palios piece. Thompson guided Illinois through reception in the early eighties build Illinois Navy Pier, Chicago White Sox, But one aspect of Thompson's legacy could not be disputed. He liked to have a good time. Paige too. Thompson, one set up beer trucks on the lawn of the governor's mansion in Springfield invited protest ng a labor union members to have a drink. He loved the Illinois State Fair, where he rode the giant slide each year at its opening. Deviating from the peace. Please tell me this guy did not take his shirt off in front of the press or in front of constituents are really honestly in front of his family. Big Jim's pension for partying led to a little controversy, particularly during his tight 1982 reelection campaign against former U. S senator analyze Stevens in the third. Cheerio. Here's the nitty gritty a pair of alleged incidents in which Thompson was drinking alcohol. The demon alcohol with college students at football games raised the ire of former governor Dan Walker. Like Stevenson, a Democrat, Walker said. My phrase with righteous indignation. I'm sure, Walker said It was irresponsible for Thompson to be imbibing in the stands during the Northern Illinois University homecoming game. Alcohol was illegal at the stadium. Booz was also banned at Hanson Field in McComb, the home of the western Illinois University, Leathernecks. Has anybody called for the renaming of the leather next year? Back to the editorial here of the piece that didn't prevent big Jim Thompson from partaking again, according to a United Press international reports. During the 82. W II, You homecoming game, Thompson sipped a peppermint Schnapps from a toilet plunger, the report stated. He also received a kiss from a bearded female impersonator named Candy who left a lipstick stain on the governor's cheek. It made good. Thompson's pregame promise to quote join all you party animals at halftime. This is from U P. I The governor had apparently turned down several toilet plunger offers before he finally relented. Quote. I can't do that. G. I hope no one tells Dan reference to Walker. More accurately. Thompson was reported to have said that because according to him, the W II you drinking incident never happened. In a 2014 interview with the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, Thompson admitted to accepting a beer. Ah, swig of Schnapps and a shot of BlackBerry brandy at Northern Illinois. But the primary instigators of western Illinois were the peach blossoms. Ah group of students who are military veterans during WW football games, the peach blossoms dressed in drag. And roamed the stands carrying toilet plungers filled with booze. I believe my old friend. Oh, and on air partner. I believe Cisco, Coto went to double the audio from not mistaken. I'm not sure he was a military veteran. I know his brothers were And I doubt I don't I don't think Cisco drinks. And I doubt that he never dressed in drag. But you never know. Wild college years back to the peace. Big Jim said. This the group started towards us and I said, Who are they? These big guy and dresses, wigs holding the plunger came right at me. Ah, and the university president, I thought to myself. No, no, no, no, no, no, It's one thing to be handed a beer. It's another thing to be drinking out of a toilet plunger, so I refused, and they finally went away. I've said many times on the air politicians will do silly things, you know, kissing babies. That's a long tradition. I get that, but there's there's always a risk in doing that, especially nowadays. Don't put on a funny hat or a tank helmet, Michael Dukakis. Ah and never if you're You're a certain politician and you visit a certain type of church tow land that coveted a vote. Don't dance and by God, if you're gonna clap clap of the congregation at opposite the congregation, dummy, all right. Back here. The next day, The story broke about what did or didn't take place at the Hanson field. Thompson said. This is all agenda by Natalie is just not true, The governor said. My wife came down and they said Honey before you read the story in the paper. Let me explain. I did a lot of stupid things, but that wasn't one of them. Close quote. Thompson went on to defeat Stevenson analyze Stevenson in what remains the closest gubernatorial election in Illinois Modern history The margin is only 5000 votes, not about 3.7 million cast. So it can't conclusively be said if he did or didn't drink with a transvestite out of a plunger, But the incident may or may not have narrowed Thompson's margin of victory. It also can be said if the bearded toilet plunger filled with shops vote helped or hurt him eke out that victory in again that's from Nick. Lejos, a columnist for the Peoria Journal Star, and you should look into it. It's post a capital fax dot com. The police tactics that we have allegedly used here in town include Kettle ing.

"That I recommend is, of course, the connected to Chicago podcast hosted by The dean of City Hall. Reporters doubled his own bill Cameron, who joins me now to talk about the life and legacy of big Jim Thompson, when you had heard first that he passed. What was the first memory of Thompson that came to your mind, Bill Cameron. Well, I would say the monthly shows we used to do on my Sunday shows when he was governor. We had time to really get into issues and talk about the way deals were made and politics was played, and he'd come in once a month just to do that on what was then W and make you You know, I was reading all the obituaries and especially the columnist Mark Brown had a fine when he's going to be your next hour. Neil Steinberg in the Sun Times as well. I was not aware how far back he went, You know, I knew him as a governor, I knew had been a U. S attorney. But first, he built quite a roster in that U. S attorney's office. A lot of superstars. Became superstars later worked under Jim Towns. Can you speak to that event? Yeah, He put a lot of daily Democrats in prison with the help of all those guys that are mentioned, including guys like Sam Skinner, who later became U. S attorney. But he made a career out of going after daily Democrats, but he never got to daily himself. He got to the number two guy Tom Kane, chairman of finance, who thought that they'd never get a never dirty a pole keen but finally sent him to prison. And that set the stage for his popularity, and the Republican Party decided to slay him for governor, and he want to easily over my college and otherwise very popular secretary of state in the 1976 elections. When Thompson first went to work for the U. S attorney wasn't it's kind of a back room deal that this U s attorney was going to retire. Move on in a year, and I was going to be Thompson's office after that need work with Mitchell out of the Nixon administration. Yes, sir. Wass. It was all planned because the other guy was going to go up to the appellate court, and it worked out beautifully for the Republicans. Didn't Thompson did he prosecute any other Republicans other than Spiro Agnew? There were a couple of on the county board some county officials, but they were token Republicans. It was really going after Dirty Democrats down at City Hall. And who did he unseat was a Dan Walker for governor. Walker was knocked off by Howlett in that primary. Okay, 76 because daily put up a little knockoff Walker, who wouldn't give daily the crosstown Expressway? Remember that one? Yes, I do. I vega over that. So he he got close to Richard J. Daley close, Teo took keen and put keen away, but never could was going after Richard J. Daley. Well, of course, but Richard J. Daley, like Mike Madigan, uh, always had a buffer between him and the dirty deal, and so they could never put their hands on. Richard J. Daley and for the summaries, and I would be surprised if they couldn't get Mike Madigan. But who knows? Yeah, I'm going to take the hunter on that. I don't see that happening either. I think it was gonna happen. It would've already happened unless this kind of sidebar unless what's that former lobbyist named McClane, Mike McLean, You know, but I think Madigan's too smart even to talk to McLane on, you know, unsecure telephone line and implicate himself. He just doesn't seem like that kind of guy. Back Tio Governor James Thompson talking about his life and legacy here with her own Bill Cameron. Did he ever express admiration for the building that bore his name after was known as the State of Illinois Building. Oh, absolutely. I mean, he made the pick. On what the building would be like. You know, the pick and salmon was his idea. So he was mighty proud of it. But mighty disappointed that seven construction workers fell to their death building it What was his? He didn't get married until he was running for office. Did he? And he was essentially just a hardworking bachelor. That was the the story of Jim Thompson. That's right. I think you know about Jim Thompson knows was. He was a moderate Republican who is interesting and making a deal by crossing The isle and fighting out with those Democrats needed to do things like keep the White Sox in the Southside or fix up Navy Pier and make it to the biggest tourist attraction in Illinois. In other words, he was not interested in fighting. As is so often the case today, but he was interested in finding consensus and doing what was good for Illinois. So we knew he wouldn't have to Richard J. Daley, but he had to cut a deal Richard M. Daley to get the white socks to stay in town. How did that come about? Well, they had to stop the clock in the Illinois house because there was a midnight deadline on DH hey, was on the floor, literally twisting arms, really putting the pressure on the last few votes. On DH. He needed a little more time and so somebody stopped the clock. And it was really more like 12 or three AM then just before midnight that they got the deal done. That's that's faster. That's just great. That's that's great. Stop the clock. Not not metaphorically, literally. Stop the clock. So Chicago So Illinois and the mayor at the time was not rich Daley was Harold Washington with the White Sox deal. Yes. When I was going through the Legislature, Okay. All right. Okay, but daily was mayor by the time Well, I thought it was. I thought it was. I thought it was Thompson daily and Ryan's door for the three guys wrong. Well, I think daily undoubtedly probably had some effect, but the deal was to do was done..

"It is he may get this opportunity to speak but they'll have opening arguments and then I think they'll probably have vote to dismiss right Fridley. Believe that won't get voted through. But it's possible that could be the end of it after that but I think that the fact that people have come forward and the fact that there's has been this dump of documents and the fact. The John Bolton has said that he would testify trial if cold and just the fact that almost every day more stuff comes out out more. Republican senators are gonNA find it uncomfortable when they go back to their constituents to have voted I just dismissing it without having heard any evidence that getting to the point where prior to this stuff happening they would be worried about voting four mu impeaching trump and dismissing him from office because of the backlash from their voters. Now is getting to the point. One hopes says revealing its What you're getting to the point? Where if they did then defend trump? Yeah the price of the people are just GonNa go. Let's be a moment as tipping point is reached well over fifty Republican. Senators are not going to have any qualms what so ever ignoring all of this evidence and just voting in favor favor trump. The the more stuff like this comes out in the intervening days. The the more possibility there is that there will be just enough to tip it in of having witnesses and documents. Yeah but I mean. Let's pretend that the Republicans are going to be prince principled old enough in general to think. Let's actually have a fair trial that Hungary and the standing of houses else's lawmakers in the world of Politics Strauss knowing our own personal gain in future. Yeah yeah talking to nine this particular time line and finally some things we really don't talk to talk about. Since last we spoke. The House voted to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate. Nancy signed the documents and hand out some commemorative pens which pissed Republicans off presumably because they're not allowed to be angry or anything trump does so they have to rage about every other little thing. That happens all that explode. The trial starts on Tuesday. And in the meantime they've been picking and teams Pelosi's prosecutors have gone with a mix of veteran players like Adam Schiff Zoe lofgren alongside rookie such as Jason Crowe. Donald's defenders meanwhile will be jointly. We run by White House Counsel Patch Baloney and trump's personal lawyer. Jason also on the team is Pam. Bondi the former Florida attorney general. Who declined to investigate okay? Trump University for tax fraud days after her reelection campaign received a check for twenty five thousand dollars from the Donald J trump foundation the charity that had to be shut down recently he because of fraud. And just. Today it's been announced that former Jeffrey Epstein Ano- J Simpson. That's any Alan Dershowitz has joined the team. Trump apparently likes whips quits. Because he's good on TV. which rather overlooks the fact? That much of the general public dislikes what with all the Jeffrey Epstein annot J Simpson defending in the wake of trump's latest reckless foreign policy actions. That could very easily result in more and more troops being sent to the Middle East. Jason Selvik endeavoring stiffler commandeur known as the good liars thought the public deserve the reminder who the trumps are and pasted a poster featuring junior to the front of the Armed Forces Careers Center in Brooklyn. The poster has baby trump arms folded in a blue suit and open next shit with the words. I'm not enlisting but you should and next to the. US Army we luggage below. It has the tagline this week and there's trump week on instagram. The two wrote we put up some signs the army recruitment centre. Hopefully we beyond going to war. But if we did we know one guy who enlist they previously postcards of Putin into the merchandise racks at trump tower with the caption forty fifth president of the United States as daily costs as one way to appease the outraged trump supporters will be Phadang boy to sign up now. KAZIANIS KAZIANIS shoots a dumb animals. Which means you probably shouldn't go hunting with his brother anymore? But then who are we to spoil his fun or thwart that much needed public nervous service. Trump often lies claim that his fifty percent approval rating is wrong because seven to ten percent of his supporters. Too embarrassed to admit like him. Well it is wrong but but not for that reason. Firstly pretty much everyone except Rasmussen puts him closer to forty percent but even that is artificially high according to a couple of professors at Cornell. He theorized used that the way. The question was asked. Prompt people to answer which team they're on rather than if they actually think trump is doing a good job in an effort to remove that variable they ask people how favorably I believe you trump relative to other republicans including John McCain. Mike Pence Ronald Reagan and Alaska's Village Idiot Sarah Palin before the midterms trump ranked close to pence cents higher than Palin in December. Two thousand in one thousand nine. They ran the survey again Reagan and McCain still scored fairly highly but now trump is even less popular than Sarah. I read all the newspapers and magazines Palin Sarah which career is the bad career motherfucking Palin. He he was also that thing. Remember that thing with a change the way that they recorded whether people trump voters by the if they responded on the fuck off trump. Yeah Yeah So. That's why it's a good day if plateau lower the Sarah Palin. Wow we thought trumpet. Written trade is bad but no. It's fine apparently last Friday told Fox News is Laura Ingram a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia said. Listen you're very rich country. You want more troops. I want to send them to you. But you've got to pay us. They're paying us. They've already deposited. Posited one billion dollars in back so did you hear what he just said. Former Republican Justin Amash put bluntly he sells troops and he's pointing pointed out before trump's use of the troops has broken his campaign. Promise to bring them home. He's moving troops back into Iraq. He's moving other troops in Saudi Arabia and using using our forces almost as mercenaries paid mercenaries. Who are going to come in as long as Saudi Arabia pays us some money? It's good to go so let me get this strike. Trade is okay as long as it's in people who otherwise nothing else to do to see who are somewhere else and who might die and thus won't be able to complain. Hey Donny thanks to you. There's lots of unemployed steel workers farmers kids in cages. At the border. You could get money for I'm sure trump preps the lines to ingram with you know doing something that nobody's ever done. I there's a reason for that. Most awesome resort legal under nine hundred eighty nine international convention and be anyway. It's not true. Selling people has been done before and boy. America and Lincoln fought very hard to stop it happening. It was a President Donald not a car according to the new the old times Russian. Hackers have successfully infiltrated the network of Ukrainian Gas Company. SMA The one that trump has been trying everything to get dirt on for months. I don't remember him saying Russia issue or listening on TV again which can only mean that. He's learning to do some of his crimes when he's not on TV. I would say that will make it harder to hold him accountable. But firstly Rudy Giuliani will inevitably confessed on his on the Sunday shows and secondly nothing. That's is anyway now. The big pillar trump certainty about the crookedness of his opponents is crumbled to dust. The Washington Post reports the Department of Justice investigation into the Clinton Foundation dealings as come up with nothing John. Hobart was asked by Jeff sessions to look into concerns. Guess who's that the. FBI hadn't fully pursued cases related to the Clinton Foundation as well as continues his tenure secretary of state the post reports who had found nothing worth pursuing let alone any criminal charges senior department of Justice officials said at the investigation largely been viewed as little more than a way to appease trump and his Republican allies quote. We didn't expect much of it. And now the data uber as time went on a lot of people just forgot about it. But not the invincibility ignorant unfor- getting elephant at the head of the party. Barely an hour after after the Post report came out. Trump was on the campaign trail telling supporters crooked. Hillary locker up isn't it a classic projection technique technique of psychopaths to see one's own peccadilloes slash heinous crimes in everyone else but oneself. It was only a few episodes ago. We reported reported that trump foundation was found really very guilty of all souls crookedness to the tune of billions of dollars to be paid in fines and members of the trump family banned from ever ever being charity directors. Again never are they really know mirrors in the White House. The Government Accountability Office has released a report concluding that the trump administration gratien broke the law. I know I'm shocked when they withheld military eight Congress had approved for Ukraine. They pointed out that the Impoundment Control Act does not permit commit withholding funds for policy reasons which is brilliant. Because everyone knows that that's not the reason they withheld the funds to be fair. It's also not permitted to withhold funds for personal a political gain. But it's pretty sweet. Even the bullshit made up reason the O. M. B. gave is still again. They've against the law. Well the start of the pond. Boris Johnson gave his much lauded first. Big Interview to the BBC as prime minister was his tissue box of lies ripped to shreds inspire the rottweiler journalism of Andrew. Neil last now of course not the very fact that Boris agreed to an interview means that you must have been sure of getting affable breakfast. TV chat-meister Dan Walker who looks thirty years younger than his forty. Two years and weirdly is nowhere near scorchingly incisive and unforgiving is an actual twelve year road when pressed gently inevitably on the matter of ringing the bells of Big Ben to sound the day of Brexit. But not in the triumphalist victory over Europe the like of which is everybody knows. It's Edging Coal Kinda way you understand. Boza pretended to be shocked that it cost a half a million pounds and with his healing. The division with one one nation conservatism mosque slap to the front of his head. He attempted to distance himself from the public purse paying for it but noticeably he did not cost the whole idea because as king he duffed after happen so he casually through in the Info about people setting up ways. You can bunk above for Big Ben Bong an an. How fucking rehearse was that turn of phrase so basically after the advent of the referendum and the general election? Boris is continuing to make sure the whole nation is is now loggerheads. This time overspending. Five hundred thousand pounds of taxpayers money to sound a bell. Nine thousand nine percent of the country won't be able to hear for thirty seconds. Pickens Dominic Cummings has found the ideal method to put out the constant fiery. Boris his pants by getting forest piss himself laughing at our expense. So that's all the bad arguments faulty reasoning. We have time for this episode. You can find the show notes up for trump dot com and if you hear trump say something stupid and want to ask if it's fallacy or contact details.

And if you don't God help you you're going to be in a fucking world of hurt. I'M GONNA come over there and cram this podcast down your ear. All I'm GonNa make you wish you Never Got Bluetooth headphones. I'm going to shave your Goddamn Tat. Enjoy Chris that was excellent take on the seven deadly sins a brilliant anyway to reference the movie we're here to discuss today. Which is David Ventures nineteen ninety-five vastly influential film seven? Yes which we are doing because is a super listener suggested that we do this. Avid listeners will recall that we went down the IMDB page of the onset medic. Whose name I don't have had my but you know what I was thinking anyway? If I was him and we started talking about him on the podcast I'd be like I enjoy the podcast but I don't know that I want to be like I don't know if I want to be talked about. So he knows who he is we know who he is we thank him. We're doing this. Because is he worked on seven. And but certainly yes Jeffrey Stevens. You don't have to worry. We will not give her name out. It was suggested by Jeffrey Stevens. Who has the medic on the static medic? Brad Pitt famously. had an injury during a chase scene. He smashed through a windshield actually burns. It's pretty bad you know. He really muscled through and finish the take and he's only after they called cut that he showed the director like his severed arm seven and they didn't even news that take but that's something that Jerry probably probably dressed that wound exactly turn it be good choice that are onset medic. Exact and fan probably Handled old Brad. Pitt's blood. Actually shed too but he certainly had some on this. When I did see I actually went to a movie theater new movies playing and I actually went on a date to go see devil in a blue dress which was the same time the Walter Mosely adaptation with Denzel Washington Rate Movie? I'm you know because I didn't see it because I actually walked into the wrong thing and actually the woman that I was going to see if she says that seven thing I don't want to say so movie opens you see this African American man from behind in Kitchens. Change your like we're in the right place and then you go and then I was like. Oh Morgan Freeman's in this too and it was pretty soon. I think once the horrific perfect title sequence entitled to Mix so we decided to say and loved it. I'm a big fan of Zodiac as you might well you know I liked seven when it came out but the DVD includes four. Count them four commentaries about the movie with the producer Mike Deluca the director are the cinematographer. Another one with fincher. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman a third one with the sound department. which is is the most fascinating one and I'm not saying that just to suck up to Matt? The engineer and tones sound Dulcet but man. The audio design is fascinating in this movie. And one I think with the screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker and my appreciation for the movie grew as I listened more and more to the people involved in the making of talk about about the care with which it was assembled. What Andrew Kevin Walker have to say? He's interesting because he's written a few movies but he's certainly not a guy that I was familiar with right. He said that the movie movie came out of his experience. Living in New York probably late eighties and early nineties when it was a hell hole and the Senate were not that much different man rammed on a little bit more expensive but other than that so yeah he says it came out of his experience living in New York and sort of hating himself and hating everyone. You know. It's an early new line cinema movie. which sort of a ninety s alternative live cinema plays funded by a major studio? That was kind of trying to do different types of material. That probably wouldn't have been green lit at a major studio and this was certainly a movie that was is challenging for its time. I mean it's still challenging. It's still a movie that doesn't play by the quote unquote rules of the genre and yet is very conscious of the rules. Like in some ways it almost looks like it might be something you expect and then up ends it in in certain ways and I think that's part of the reason why I was interested to hear what Dan Walker to say because like you said. This movie was so influential influential. In terms of the tone in terms of really being a breakout for David fincher. And the look. You said you hadn't seen it since nineteen ninety five but you I'm sure have I've seen countless knockoffs both the aesthetic but also the fascination with serial killers. Yeah this door nece that became so associated with it is. It's almost almost a joke now nineties. This movie is in the best way possible and the announcer. You're listening exactly. Yes but a kind of nobility underneath not not that Neil is trying to shed light on in Brad Pitt's loathes Williamsburg before there wasn't Williamsburg or at least you know before it meant what it it means. Now so many things about it became indelible and I think people would almost be realized that this is the root of all of it I would have thought that Inter Kevin Walker would have been such a genius as or had other sorts of insights. But I think it was one of those things again. Not sticking their way from him but so many influences kind of meeting in one place to sort of make this classic film in and it's also challenging not not only in the ways that it's meant to be but I think some of the things now and this is also why the ninety s sometimes people look back on it now uncharitably. Yeah like sort of politically. Don't look the same way like the women in this. Do not have him across. Well do not end well. He no ones. That aren't dead ink. All of them are I UH-HUH But I I think that certainly not that the film is sexist or more times. Do Change some things about it. That don't age as well but I think the core we're of it is still Actually quite romantic beautiful. And it's physically beautiful to look at so fincher had famously and tragically had a horrible experience directing alien a- As a replacement director and it just was a production that is one of most fabled troubled productions. He has a line in one of the commentary tracks where he's like at the time that they approached me to do seven. I think I would have rather had a terminal disease. The direct another feature film but Deluca sent him the script and turns out that Deluca sent him an earlier version of the script. The version that they sent venture was what became known as the head in the box version. So fincher call to DELUCA and says hey hey I love it. It's great and through their conversation. It suddenly becomes clear. That fincher is talking about a version of the script. That deluca knows is not the one that his business partners want to put into production. Yeah adventure says well. I don't know what to tell you. I mean that's how the movie should go. That's the movie I WANNA make says. I agree with you so as long as you stick to that line fine and I can report that you believe that and I believe that I think Brad believes that because I think he was already a. Let's see if we can get this through. I was reading an interview with Andrew Kevin Walker. Kerlin he was talking about the notes in those changes. Were both From the studio but there was a director who had been attached Jeremiah. Chechik yeah Who thinks another music video director director is Christmas? Eve directed Christmas vacation. Sure which I guess has a song and it's very similar film like Benny in June But he had mandated some of those changes. I don't know if he was taking the studios line or if maybe they hired him because he happened similar aesthetic but he also found.
