Social Media Risks Parents - Especially Of Girls - Should Know About
"For us for US old fogies it's probably going to provide some context here. So let's go back and some of you remember this back in the early days of social media like around two, thousand, three, two, thousand, four. You've got social media back then like friendster my space. Really. Wow. Did you have a mind? Is Account somewhere out there. Too Much excalibur. And facebook was really so the facebook but it was mainly, you had to be a college student on a college campus, they have access to facebook. and. These were actually it was a nice place. Social Media was very tame back then. It's kind of like, Hey, look at me here's some pictures. Here's the bands that I like what I'm listening to here's the links to smile into my friends. You know everybody remembers here's another meeting right now at this restaurant look at this great meal. and. That was kind of the first few years of what social media was. There was no censorship. There was no you know multimillion dollar corporations coming in and taking over. And there was no political groups spreading outrage or propaganda on social media. It was not really a destructive environment back. Then it wasn't toxic wasn't a toxin environment in any anyway. So then some big changes starting to happen in the kind of the mid to late two thousand. So facebook. started. To allow anyone to join, you didn't have to be a college student. So anybody can create an account and then in two thousand nine. facebook introduced the like button, and now for the first time everything and everyone can be graded and ranked, and now everybody is rewarding or punishing everyone else by simply clicking a button whether they like or dislike you you know Lance I can totally hear some of our listeners right now saying who cares if you get a like or not and I wouldn't be surprised if listeners say facebook, what's that? But because of for mature adults, we are more developed in don't tire identity to social media but in this is critical because for younger adults or children social media has now become a popularity contest. So now, speech isn't just you and me talking openly it becomes how do I get more likes and approval? So other platforms like twitter come out and they introduced the re tweet button yet, and now the things that I'm saying that we're saying right here on this podcast that you're liking tend to be the things that are going to make people emotional or even sharing my frustration or anger, and then you or anyone compress re tweet and spread that. So now my frustration and anger can go to thousands or even millions of people within a day that share or want to have the same expression and like the way that somebody else says it. You're correct in an I think between two, thousand, nine, two, thousand, twelve kind of this is the next step when when the news media mainstream media began to realize, hey, the social media thing is not going away and it may even overcome and overtake us. So the mainstream media begins to adapt to this new world in which people now and they're not going to CNN. They're not going to the New York Times for their information as much. They're getting their news and their opinions from social media and often I can tell you without fact checking anything. It's like well, you know. God bless my mom but I don't know how many times she's like well I saw it on facebook it has to be true. It must be true. If you're rushing spy putting it on. I'm like. So now we can we can go down rabbit hole on how social media and also creates echo chambers and in confirmation bias because one of the things that facebook switched over to it used to be that you would get everybody get all this information. And it was kind of random. Well, facebook started optimizing that to where they're GONNA only gonNA show you social media is only gonNA show you the stuff that they think you want to hear and like. So this changed in became more of an engagement focused thing. So now, you this confirmation bias because now we can only we can choose to just watch and listen to the point of view that we agree with. and. Let's get an. So that that's a whole rabbit hole. We go down I don't WANNA do that. You can go back and listen to somewhere where podcast we talk about that. But let's get to what this means for parents and specifically for parents of daughters so. T this you know this is probably relate to a lot of our guys out there. So in the development process boys. Are. Our maturity are hierarchy or or the the Alpha male is kind of based on. You know things like our athletic ability are toughness. Our ability to dominate or insult can competition teasing. You know drinking soda through your nose with a straw. Those are the things like middle school boys are. That's important to them. Things like that. Now, I'm not. I'm not Dourson this behavior agreeing with this saying that you know what this type of behavior is admit just that's just what it is. It's the scientific fact that this is kind of how middle school and high school boys move through their child development process. We could argue that. I would argue this Dante that some boys never develop out of the state and we have thirty and forty year olds who are still clinging to this. Alpha, Male, I'm the toughest I can dominate an insult you model. By that. Maybe, fifty year old. That's me later there. But but for girls and for daughters, this is specifically different. It's about who's in WHO's out, who is included, who is ex colluded who's friends with who who knows who secrets. And so the Female. Tends to be not physical like boys like they're not going to wrestle and fight it's relational and it's a Lotta drama. girls don't bully each other. You know generally, girls don't bully the each other physically so much. But what girls do is they gossip and they damage each other's relationships and again, we could argue that they're grown women even in our churches that still cling to this model now again. Not. dosing anything. That this is we agree with this behavior and I'm just I'm just regurgitating medical science and facts kind of the development process so. Around two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, nine when we start seeing smartphones coming out, the iphone first comes out and now you have social media is in your hand and in your pocket at all times. Okay. So with girls and daughters, this multi by this multiplies, a girl's ability to be able to damage each other's relationships enormously. So in some homes and in some cases. Children Girls They have access twenty, four seven to this device in which their thoughts emotions and images can be reported can be rewarded or punished by. Clicking a button and so if you had a fight with a girl that day in school, she can get on there and spread nasty things about you and you everybody's not liking you or making fun of you via anonymous social media on a phone and while adults adults, we might shrug things off and say, what's the big deal I mean who cares but you gotta remember girls in this vulnerable stage in development middle school high school they're looking for approval they're looking for inclusion and they're being they're looking to you know being seen. As beautiful as much and they're much more susceptible to anxiety depression, self harm and even suicide this you know approval inclusion in comparison that they're dealing with is that make sense Dante?

The Surprising Connection Between the VW Golf and the DeLorean
"There's a very solid chance that Georgia Jaro is the greatest car designer of all time. His genius was in his ability to combine amazing artistic creativity with practical engineering know how his designs are futuristic even fifty years later. But when he drew them, they weren't just concepts. They were practical blueprints. WHO's measurements were strictly proportioned to be something. A driver could actually use that combination of artistic innovation and practicality made Jaro one of the. Most bankable designers of the seventies and eighties all told his decades long career. He designed over two hundred cars totaling over sixty million in sales sixty million units. You've almost definitely ridden or driven a car that Gerardo originally designed I always confused by that sixty million because I was like that could be just the mark one Gulf in one year. That's like, yeah, that's the mark one golf if they sold them for sixty dollars. Yeah like not even they sold them for like three like. Yeah, yes. Sixty million units. That's nuts. That's like conservatively. A. Like a Billion Dollars Oh like billions I'd probably say more than that. Yeah. Long Story Short to jar continues to have a massive influence on automotive design but who influenced to Jaro? Born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, eight he couldn't come from a long line of car designers because cars hadn't been around for that long. Instead his father grandfather and great-grandfather were all artists who specialized in painting elaborate murals and frescos in the churches and palaces of Italy. Naturally Young Georgetta himself wanted to follow the family tradition and be a painter himself. However, real life intervened in the depressed post World War Two economy of Italy Mario Jer. Father recognized his son's artistic talent but wanted to make sure Jetta learned practical applications for his skills. Italy was no longer a country of churches and palaces that needed painting after centuries of tradition it was now being pushed into modernity by global forces of change. So as a teenager Ger, jetta was sent sixty miles north from Garesh CEO father's town to the city of Turin to study technical drawing and costume design. Strange Mix. Drafting table on one side of the room. One of those cool. Sewing Mannequins on the other yet no head no arms no legs just that torso the bus. All of his costumes look like little cars. For centuries, terrain has been a major cultural hub of Italy with centuries of painters opera, an architecture that tradition of creativity was alive and well in the nineteen fifties when Georgetta arrived to the city. It must have been an incredibly inspiring place for a brilliant teenage artist to be sent to study. Terrain also happened to be the home of the country's automotive industry which had thrived in the early twentieth century but had been knocked on its by World War Two with scoreboard alert Italy Kinda lost most importantly though Fiat was based in Teheran Fiat was the General Motors of. And as time went on, it acquired. So many of its competitors that a couple of decades later Fiat was practically the Italian auto industry. Have you guys ever seen the test track? They have on top of the Fiat factory yet so cool it's so cool. So much of success is simply being in the right place at the right time and for a young designer to Rin of the nineteen fifties was exactly that time and place by then the Italian economy was picking up and car manufacturing was a vital ingredient to the recovery. Meanwhile, Jaro was studying at art school during the day and studying technical design at night among the things he was drawing were cars and one fateful day jar sketches crossed the desk of Dante Giacosa Fiat's technical director. GIACOSA was the designer of the Fiat Five, hundred, a compact city car that would sell nearly four million units and cement Fiat's postwar dominance. He was impressed enough to bring Jaro, who had no work experience to that point on board as a junior designer at the age of seventeen. That's a gamble I mean that's. Amazing. What kind of drawings were you guys doing at seventeen? I actually had this cool skull that I was really cultivating through high school I was doing skull. I would draw zero. Skull. And the Greg Logo. Nice that's all you need. So we would probably work at We'd probably be doing designs for Spencer's sounds like. A. Jarrah started at Fiat during a golden age of the Italian auto and a big reason for the industry success was the increasing collaboration between the engineers and designers.

COVID-19 Makes Face To Face Campaigning Difficult
"Out. The vote sounds like a tired political cliche, but it really is about getting out door knocking, talking to voters face to face during a pandemic that is both hard and risky, but local campaigns in Ohio are still managing to pull it off. Here's Nick Costello with member station W. C P an idea stream. When you're a down ballot candidate that is someone not named Joe Biden or Donald Trump. You might spend the summer reminding members of the neighborhood Democratic or Republican Club that you're on the ticket to, and this year you'll have to make sure you're not on mute. Why don't we just I love for both of the people on with us right now to be able to just say a little bit more about themselves because they are running. In this election and I. This is a meeting of the Cleveland Ward 17 Democratic Club held on zoom and broadcast on Facebook Ward, 17 on the city's Westside boast Cleveland's highest voter turnout. But the club doesn't plan to bend voters ears on their doorsteps this election. Instead, they're putting their hopes and phone calls, text messages and postcards. Club member Nora Kelly is helping to lead the effort. She admits it's a big loss not to meet in person and build camaraderie and enthusiasm. Just feel the energy of other folks in the commitment that other folks have, I think is really important insurance of Breathing life into a campaign but also keeping people nursed and engaged in the process. The club printed up door hangers that say vote early, flattened the curve with a form to request an absentee ballot. Kelly says it's an effort to avoid crowded polling places and give election boards plenty of time to mail out ballots really encouraging everyone in the neighborhood extent possible did vote by mail so that folks are gonna be safe. Absentee voting became especially critical in the primary, when Cove in 19 led state officials to close polling places and extend the election in the 11th hour. That election process was wonky like I don't know a word to describe it. This summer, Dante Gibbs joined a group of volunteers to stuff packages with cloth masks, information on the census and instructions for absentee voting. They're distributing tens of thousands of these two people in the Cleveland area, he says, eh, So we really wanted to get in front of it for this next election because there were multiple stuff that you have to make. The Ohio Republican Party took its campaign digital this spring, keeping in touch with voters through phone calls, video chats and mobile app, says Chairman Jane Temkin. In June, the party ventured out to knock on doors again while taking precautions, she says. The reports I get are that people have been pretty courteous and plate and our field staff wear masks and they stand back and they're able to ask the voters questions about the upcoming election. Timken expects an increase in early and absentee voting this time around, too, and says Field staff will have absentee request forms for those who want them. I'm grateful for the technology, but you know we have A top notch field staff, and we like to call them the Buckeye Battalion. And there's none better. But for all the focus on casting ballots, early voting booths will be open in November and election boards. Air searching for people to staff polling places on Election Day. For NPR News.

Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo suspended one game for headbutting Wizards' Moe Wagner
"Is playing the Milwaukee Bucks and you would say, Oh, yeah, Milwaukee should win that game. We don't know what the bucks they're gonna look like on the court. And how? How many minutes. Are those bucks Players going, Teo get Here's one thing, though, in a game last night were Yannis onto the Campo probably didn't need supply. He did play, so you would have wondered if Mike Budenholzer would've put onto the tempo out in the court tomorrow. Up against the Memphis Grizzlies. Now he doesn't have that option to do so, because you're honest onto the Campo got hit with a one game suspension for a foolish head. But last night On most Wagner and we've seen the honest answer component on the bubble, pick a fight with Dante Hall of the Nets, and then picked a fight with also Mo Wagner. And they were both unnecessary. Why are you doing that? Why you put in yourself in that situation? It's not like you're headbutting LeBron or CO I Leonard, your head butting two guys that Don't mean a damn thing to you, and both their team stink. So you're going to be a back to back M v p Award winner? Maybe trying to pick up the intensity in the bubble, which I could appreciate on DH. Maybe because you know, everyone's saying your season doesn't mean anything until yeah. Get to the embassy finals and really your season starts the postseason. Maybe you just get in and see that that's finally coming. But for Johannes last night, what he was doing was absolutely foolish, and I don't get it and even after the game He realized that it was a mistake and what he did. Terrible action. Um, never go back. Turn back time and club XL playing. I wouldn't do it. But then they know human making state's got out of
Avatar: The Last Airbender Creators Depart Netflix's Live-Action Series
"Okay, let's start off with A bit of news that I'm sure comes to some disappointment our own ht. What is going on with Avatar the last air bender they were GonNa make a live action TV series for net flicks. What is the update? The latest update is a real bummer for avatars last Air Bender Fans Michael Dante Di Martino and Brian Connie ebsco who created the original acclaimed nickelodeon. Animated Series have parted ways with net flicks over the creative direction of live action remake series. De Martino Post announced in a post on the website titled An Open Letter to Avatar last air bender fans saying that they couldn't control the creative direction of the series and decided to just exit the project altogether and he he had some pretty not I wouldn't say harsh but not. Veiled for in terms of thinly-veiled In like knots unhappiness with Netflix production So he said at one point The project, which is still ongoing has the potential to be good. But what can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on screen, it will not be what Brian and I had envisioned or to make. So this is a massive bummer for Avatar. The last Air Bend Fans because De Martino. Goes involvement in the first place was kind of the reason that There was somewhat cautious excitement for this because these the creators at donors in executive producers for the new Netflix series and they promised or shared rather that they would be deliberate. Choice to a cast as. A people of Color and ethnically accurate to the depictions in leverage animated series and the. The memory of the last live action attempt. Ed Bender is still strong in fans mines, and we don't want a repeat of that. So now that contracts go rhino are gone, there's a lot of fear that the the. Disaster will be. Repeated. Yeah, we shouldn't insinuate that this disagreement it's probably over like the the the racist of casting or anything could be like story or character that we don't even know what the disagreements are over. This is a little surprising to me though because my conversations with filmmakers on and off the record has been that like Netflix's is pretty hands off with stuff. So I'm actually very surprised that big Conflict here I'm curious as a as a fan of Avatar the last air bender now that the creators are known no longer involved in this, would you still be excited to watch live action series not at all? My cautious excitement from before. Has now turned to a sort of read. which not to say that there can you know the situation can't come out the better I'm sure that there are some great. Writers and creators out there who could have an affection for Avatar last bender could. Steer this in the right direction, but it just feels like. Martino and Connie lasko are such a major part of Avatar less air bender and its success in why such great perfect animated show that they're not being involved in stepping way in a in this situation where it seems that they clash with the Netflix's executives in some way can't really know what? I sure what it just doesn't dumb. Bode well for the production at large.

Microsoft's xbox series x Deaf Kit. code-named Dante allows game developers to enable a special lockhart mode that has a profile of the performance that Microsoft wants to hit with this second console. Then story is linked in the show notes. The rumors related to Lockhart which I think we are safe to rename the xbox series s at this point is that it is not as powerful as the xbox series x so it's probably going to be cheaper and it will probably focus on streaming using exe cloud. That's my assumption. Anyway I guess console manufacturers are now renewed value in multiple consoles skews working at game stop during the playstation three and xbox three sixty era I feel like people are generally just confused about the different buying options when it came to those consoles so. Then the playstation four and xbox one at launch. Basically each had one skew I. AM curious to see how people will react to the different playstation fives and different xbox series. Maybe, it won't confuse consumers at all especially since most purchasing as don online these days and it's just easier to do research in general or maybe it will create confusion again I don't know I. Guess we will find out at some point later this year you know it would really be nice to start saying an actual date soon I hope we learn about that. Injustice three may be on the way according to artist boss logic. This is firmly a rumor and far from a confirmation but artist boss logic who works in video games a lot. An recently did a live drawing the assassin's creed Valhalla cover art as a means of officially announcing the game for Yourself Sheridan image that just had the word injustice three stylized where the e at the end of justice is the number three and the dot on the second I was stylized to be Dr Manhattan symbol from watchmen, and it is all placed in front of a clock implying the potential game could feature watchmen characters. There's even the familiar watchmen smiley face floating around in the clock parts. Boss logic tagged Ed Boon in the tweet who is credited as the director of injustice to and is perhaps better known as one of the CO creators of mortal combat. It's really not clear what this is. Boss logic could have just mocked something up for fun as injustice fan he could just be sharing found image online and tagging ed boom to see what kind of reaction it creates or it could be totally legitimate. And tore you know maybe boss logic forgot how email works and. tweeted his to Ed Boon instead of sending it to him directly. It feels a little early to be talking about injustice three especially considering more combat eleven just came out last year and it's big DLC. Expansion was pretty recent to just a few months ago developer Nether Realm is a big team though capable of working on multiple projects at once. So it's not outside the realm of possibility that they would be ready to announce a new injustice game soon. It could be fully announced at the upcoming. DC. Fan Dome Event with maybe a plant twenty, twenty, one release that that would make sense.
The Series S may be a cheaper less powerful next-gen Xbox
"A different next Gen xbox called the xbox series s has potentially been confirmed. Thanks to labelling on a controller. Microsoft has been teasing the existence of multiple next Gen X. boxes basically since the very first time they teased plans for next. Gen. Xbox they pointedly used the term consoles Klerl the first time they even mentioned Nexgen, and then when the xbox series x was officially announced, it was called the series x, which obviously implies that it is one of many but. Those teases there hasn't been much official word on what additional buying options will be available for the next generation of xbox but. Recently, we learned about something called the xbox series s from an unlikely source, the fine print on the packaging of an xbox one controller. Tom Warren reported on the xbox says asked for the verge and wrote the verge has obtained photos of Microsoft's new next Gen xbox controller in white complete with packaging that mentions the xbox series S. Twitter User Zach S was able to purchase the controller today and we've confirmed it is genuine. The new controller was sold on a resale site today, and the side of the packaging notes that the controller works with both xbox series x and xbox series s consoles Microsoft has not officially unveiled an xbox series s yet nor has the company even confirmed a white xbox series x controller a mysterious white xbox series x controller also appeared online last month complete with the new D pad texture triggers and new share button.

David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons
"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. Â£225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively Apologize for Plantation Wedding
"Ryan Reynolds is apologizing for the plantation wedding he had in two thousand and twelve, which is wife Blake lively they were married at boone whole a former slave plantation in. South Carolina I mean you can't get around that at the time. They didn't really think about that. They thought the south has this big sweeping with the wind love story nine that the figured out and times have changed. He said the decision to have an anti bellum wedding was a huge mistake and I deeply deeply sorry for that. He did they've got married again at the. Home years later he said it was a big F ing mistake Dante. Here's the thirty th it's Ryan didn't have to speak out saying I'm sorry because what it is is this is blind ignorance I grew up in the south everywhere you go sadly there are these plantation homes and even open as tourist destinations. So you go and you visit them you look at them and It's just a lot of people don't know the history and we're kind of in the middle of that going on in the world. We don't talk politics here, but there are a lot of months of, do we take down statues? How do we deal with the history and the sad part is a lot of people don't know the history to in order to deal with it. Right and then I think when you do find out the history when you educate yourself or it's pointed out to you, you do the right thing. This is a lesson in. One One and Ryan and Blake passed with flying colors when you do something that wasn't right if you don't think it was right if it no longer feels right you speak up, you say, sorry, you know we don't talk about politics on the show I. think that's part of the success of the show but I did get married Bruce and I got married I'm shamed to say at Trump hotel we got married at trump in. So He's name is no longer on the building, but the fact is we did get married there. Do you think Blake and and Ryan have taken down their pictures got to admit we we framed after our wedding gown wedding photograph of Bruce. And I in the ballroom on the on the on the top floor. It was a beautiful beautiful view and I also frames the invitation that clearly tells you which hotel we got married at that invitation has come down in my living room. Do you think they've changed their pictures? No because it did happen and and I think though that they will educate people moving forward and educate their kids when they talk about the wedding, it's a good talking point now to people look beautiful picture and they say, you know what? This was the history this is what happened there. Let's move forward with it.

Nintendo Direct Mini: What We Learned from the Partner Showcase
"Nintendo surprised everyone late last night by announcing that it would be airing a Nintendo direct mini partner showcase early this morning. The surprise announcement last night read on July twentieth. We'll debut the first Nintendo direct mini partner showcase a series focused on titles from our development and publishing partners will share a few updates on a small group of previously announced Hashtag. Nintendo switch games? The quick window between the announcement of the thing and airing the thing. And specifically pointing out that it would only cover previously announced games lowered my expectations to the floor, but there were at least a few surprises. Here's what they shared. I the direct started with a cove in nineteen disclaimer, saying basically that the future is uncertain, and everything could change including release dates, but then they made their first announcement with was planned DLC for a game whose full title is cadence of high rule crypt of the neck, dancer, featuring the legend of Zelda. The game released last year, but it will get three new DLC packs, which will release through October. The first pack adds new characters to the game. IMPA shadow link and Shadow Zelda and then characters named Aria and Frederick who I believe our original characters. I fancy myself a bit of his elda. Didn't immediately recognize those characters D second pack will add thirty nine new songs to the game. The third pack, which seems the most substantial Ed's a whole new story with new songs where you can play as skulk the tags from yours mask who can change masks to adopt new abilities? The character pack is available today in the other packs will be available later with all the pacts eventually coming out by October, and then the game will also receive a physical release with all the DLC bundled in one box on October twenty third. I played and beat cadence of Jairo Crypto the neck road answer featuring diligent of Zelda, but ultimately liked the soundtrack a lot more than I liked the actual game. I would go so far as to say I love the soundtrack, so I am excited to hear all the new songs. I don't know that I am really eager to actually play the game more, but I am also such as Zelda soccer that I probably will. The next two announcements weren't really announcements so much. The Game Rogue Company was shown which looks like a pretty. Pretty unspectacular third person online shooter with cyberpunk sort of theme. It didn't look bad by any means that it just didn't do much to stand out. Same goes for the next game. WWE TO CAPE battlegrounds. There was some new gameplay and we saw some wrestlers who were likely well compensated to show how excited they were about the game. They were playing, but there wasn't much. That had not already been shared the mini, direct and strong, though with two big atlas announcements. Shimagami ten say one, which was basically Shimagami Tennessee, three and Japan. Is Getting remastered for release on switch next year. I would love some help here in the form of a correction because I find the Shin Montgomery ten say series to be pretty confusing as it has all devolved into different spinoffs like persona, which itself has all kinds of spin offs. I was always under the impression that knocked turn was spinoff as well, but I guess it is part of the mainline series, and this rerelease will have the number three in the title, even though it did not have a three in its North American title when it originally released in two thousand four. In any case you know where it belongs in the Shin, Mugabe cannon really isn't. All that portent the important thing is that it is generally considered to be one of the best, if not the Best Shimagami, ten say game that isn't called Persona and it's actually the entry that I play the most. It has some MON elements to it with demon collecting, and when it originally released, it featured Dante from devil may cry. Suggest character which is a cool idea. I'm curious if the rerelease will keep that Dante Cameo. It also just has a great art style to it and I'm happy to see it getting a visual overhaul for the switch release. It is coming spring twenty twenty one after that a trailer was shown for Shimagami ten. Say Five a game we have known about since two thousand seventeen, but this was the first in some time. The trailer didn't reveal much. A teenager looks like they're given some kind of demonic choice and I don't know that they make the right one. The game is coming in twenty twenty one, but the trailer didn't anymore specifics than that. I had low expectations going into this thing and they were mostly met, but I was surprised by the nocturnal announcement. That was very cool. The Internet seems generally annoyed that Nintendo has not made any big summer announcements and that with paper Mario Animal Crossing having been released. It really doesn't seem like they have any big games for the rest of the year. which is true, but the weird thing is. Is I. Don't know that it really matters to Nintendo. Twenty twenty can kind of just be a low key year for them. Because animal crossing was just that big of a hit. It feels like they are in no rush to push anything out. Because everyone is just going to keep buying animal crossing anyway, they can barely keep up with demand for the switch consoles as it is. Now with all that being said though I think Nintendo kind sees the cancellation of e three as a blessing in terms of how it likes to announce Games paper Mario was announced and released within a few months. And I think that's how Nintendo would always prefer to do it. Keep the window between announcement and release small, but e three kind of forces them to make these big proclamation announcements all piled up on top of each other and share things many months before the popular November release window with E. Three out of the way though I think Nintendo is taking advantage and will make individual announcements for games. Just shortly before they actually release. There is that rumored Super Mario collection that will gather a bunch of three D Mario Games maybe nintendo will detail it in a dedicated direct, and then release it within a month, or so closer to November, and maybe in the unlikely scenario that breath of the wild to is coming this year. They will do the same thing. have a focused dedicated direct for the game, and then it will come out shortly after or maybe as I alluded to earlier, Nintendo will just look at animal crossings absurd sales. Do a round of socially distant high fives, and just push everything in originally had planned for twenty twenty into twenty twenty one.
Heaven and Hell with Bart Ehrman
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb and I'm Joe McCormick and this week. We are going to be featuring a couple of interviews. That I recorded last week because last week Robert, you were out of quote, the office you or at least you off work for a bit and so so I recorded conversations with authors of some books one book. That's already out this year in one book. That's coming up so on Thursday of this week. We're going to be airing a conversation that I had with the author of A. A fascinating upcoming book about the evolutionary biology of cancer, but today we're going to be exploring topic in the realm of ancient history and religion. If you've followed us for a while, I think you probably know this about us that one of our favorite kind of trails to go down his tracing the evolution of religious ideas through ancient history I mean I think I've outed myself on this podcast before. As a the kind of nonreligious person who loves the Bible. Can I love to read ancient religious texts and learn about them and see how the ideas from. From the ancient world of super filtered through to us today and shape to the societies we live in, and that's exactly the kind of thing. We're GONNA be diving into in this episode I'm talking with a secular Biblical historian named Bart Erman about his most recent book, which is called Heaven and hell a history of the afterlife. This book was released in March of this year by Simon. And Schuster, and it's all about the Christian ideas of life after death where they come from ancient history, what influence their development and how they changed over time so? So there was a part that cited in the intro of Bart's book where he talks about a pew research poll that was conducted a few years ago. I think. Maybe it was in two thousand fifteen. Where it found that seventy two percent of Americans believe in a literal heaven and fifty eight percent believe in literal hell, and yet I think most Americans would be deeply surprised, even shock to learn what historians can show about the origins of these beliefs in the strange thing. Is that like the historical conclusions that Bart's GonNa talk about in this episode? Are Not fringe or unusual among secular scholars of the Bible, in historians of the ancient Near East This is utterly mainstream, critical scholarship, and yet I think regular people are especially in the united. States, are going to find it very surprising. Yeah, absolutely, and I want to stress something here for everybody, so I just got back. To work this morning and I plugged into a pre production cut of this interview and it's really it's really excellent, so if you're even slightly scared away by the idea of an interview with a secular biblical scholar don't be because Barda is tremendous. He's he's funny. Very High Energy. I think you're really going to enjoy this chat. Joe Had with Bart here. Yeah, parts full of knowledge, good humor passion for his subject. I think you're really going to enjoy the episode, but before we can do it I'll just give a little bit of background on Bart's here's his biography Bart. D Ehrman is a leading authority on the New Testament and the history of early Christianity, and the author or editor of. Of more than thirty books, including the New York Times bestsellers misquoting Jesus, how Jesus became God, and the triumph of Christianity, and that last one's really interesting. It's about how Christianity took over the Roman Empire and went from a really small religion, too dominant religion of the empire, and just a matter of a few centuries anyway, so he is a distinguished professor of religious studies, the University of North Carolina Chapel, Hill and he. He has created eight popular audio and video courses for the great courses. He has been featured in time. The New Yorker The Washington Post and has appeared on NBC CNN and the daily show with Jon Stewart as well as the history channel National Geographic Channel BBC NPR, all the hits his most recent book is Heaven and Hell just one more thing before we get into it I. WanNa mention obviously we are dealing with. With the audio constraints of of remote recording in the age of Covid, nineteen, so for example around the twelve minute mark in the episode there is briefly some background noise that sounds like a fan was turned on or some rain. It only lasts for about a minute or so, and so please just put up with a little bit of background noise, and it's very brief I promise. It's not the sounds of hell right. Now audio recordings of the underworld leaking up through some sort of mining microphone right? The well to hell was not unleashed office. So yeah, I would say without any further ado. Let's jump right in. Bardem and welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks so much for joining us today. Yes, thanks for having me so your Book Heaven and Hell I just finished reading yesterday, and I I really really enjoyed it. and I want to say that I started reading this book. It very opportune time because though I didn't plan it this way. I'm also currently in the middle of rereading. Rereading the divine comedy, actually my wife and I are reading it together and of course, the divine comedy Dante his wonderful poetry, but it's also psychologically fascinating because when you go through the theology of Dante, you get the sense of somebody who is simultaneously ingenious and thoughtful, and in some ways very intellectually bold and open minded for his historical context, but in other ways. Dante's also very limited and provincial in a word medieval like the way you see him taking so much pleasure in designing horrific tortures for his enemies from these. Petty Thirteenth Century political struggles in Italy. Working with ancient religious texts do you find yourself encountering? This kind of irony embodied within the same author or traditional lot
"The any AC national monument and preserve gets the fewest visitors of any national park, and it boasts no rangers. No trails and no waiting in line. All the more reason Christopher Solomon went out of his way to hike a few summers ago. Chris, welcome great to be here. Is this actually a national park or what's the technicality they're. Technically Rick any act check national. Monument and preserve is its name and it. It is not a national park, but it is the least visited unit of the four hundred and one properties in the national park system, so nobody goes there white. Why do they even bother thinking of it?

You know if I wanted to go there next week. Where would I fly? What I just rent a car and drive there, or how'd I get that so one of the reasons rick?

The National Monument, which is a gorgeous volcanic crater, so ease of access is not one of its selling points. Is it worth the trouble? Yeah, I was thinking about this on the drive over here and how to summarize it. I have had the good fortune to travel all over the world as a travel writer, I was with a photographer who shoots pictures all over. Over the world and beautiful places we agreed we'd never seen a place as unique as okay. How can you write in? Your article is just gorgeous about this that it was mind-bending. Lee Gorgeous is the desolation that's part of it, or what makes it better than just going to any national park, so maybe to convey what it's like I need to tell you just. Just a little bit about its geologic in human history, which is more interesting than it sounds about the time. The Egyptians were ruling the world. A seven thousand foot volcano blew its top with a with a force of ten thousand nuclear bombs ruined the bigger eruptions we we know of, and then the volcano collapsed on itself and created a crater that could swallow Manhattan. That crater filled with water, so it looked like crater lake national park, then that lake blew out in his biblical flood in over the next couple thousand years, this lost worlds was sort of created inside that crater, and it just went kind of unnoticed, except for the native peoples for thousands of years until nineteen thirty, when this man called the glacier priests arrived, and the Glacier priest was father, Bernard, how he's one of these Jesuit priests who was cut from the old cloth, swashbuckling sort of Jesuits, and he, he barnstorm all over the forty-ninth state, having these wild adventures by Bush plane. Plane by dog sled is write ups win the Saturday Evening Post and the National Geographic and in nineteen thirty, he wrote about visiting Antioch Check, and he described it as paradise found this this lost world where orchids bloomed in the volcanically warmed soil, and the rabbits were gigantic, and they came up and walked right up to his crew, which was a bunch of the Santa Clara football players, and and they felt bad killing them to eat them, but they did anyway. Did you read his writing the in preparation for your trip so I? Did I read about his writings about the great? Great Moon Crater of the earth called it, and then what happened is he wanted to go back the next year nineteen, thirty one and any act check blew up again, and he goes back and talks about it no longer in these Milton, s Kinda paradise found terms, but but in this dante-esque hellish terms describes himself peering into this blackened inferno, and then they go into the crater a couple months after it's blown up again, and they nearly die of poisonous gasses, and they're, and they're put their beans on a funeral and their beans Boileau, and they shove a thermometer in the ground. Ground thermometer explodes, and it's just this hellish wild landscape. That's the setting we go back eight years later. Just kinda see what it's like, and a lot of the soot has washed off from that nineteen thirty one explosion, but it has this kind of Sier Flinty beauty desolation sublime.

Here. All right shanty, and Cassandra! Can you tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to work at the Pine Sol Company? So I'll get started. My name is Dante and I grew up in south Los Angeles. And what the only child of a single mothers and educator in Los Angeles. And I like to say the my story took me around the world and back I think the theme for me. Was that I developed a lawyer a love of learning Early on and also a love for pursuing what's novel in new so I'd have this sort of drive to try new things, so you know from Los. Angeles I ended up going to Stanford and going to harbor to try to. Drive my education to get to learn everything that anyone would teach me. And and ultimately found myself in corporate America. And I've. In Corporate America also sat sought out like really creative roles have done international assignments and feel really proud actually to work at an organization where we have brands like pine Sol, which are allowing to give back right to my my community so I'm really proud of the of how my journey's have led me to take all that education and apply it in a place. Where we're able to give back to the black, Yeah, I'll jump in, so I'm Cassandra. Lewis and like Sean Taylor I am from south, Los Angeles and raised. In, I grew up in what I call a pine Sol household. So, what exactly does that mean? It means on Saturday mornings at wake up. There'd be Anita Baker Luther Vandross on the speakers in my mom would be in the kitchen or the living room with the bucket of Pine Sol in rags for my sister night to get to cleaning so pine solves always been. A key part of my life, my foundation and brings back so many so many wonderful memories of that time with my mom and my sister. I grew up and became a marketer. And What Do Marketing Folks Love? They love brands and when the opportunity to work on Pines. One of my favorite brands presented itself. It was a little bit of a dream. Come true, so they always say like. If you find something that you like to do, then it's it's not work. So this is something that I really. Love to do I love to to work on this business. This brand and I love that it has a really. Close Tie in to to the African American community. Because I you know I really get to give back to my to my community in that way. I'm glad that you mentioned that. It has a TA close tie into the African. American community because black women in particularly or one of the fastest growing segments of entrepreneurs but yet they still struggle to get access to capital. What what can be done to help this group? Get the resources that they need to create and grow sustainable businesses. Speaking from from my experience as a a woman business I really can't stress the importance of mentor ship. In my personal life, professional life Shontae, who I'm on the the call with the podcast with has actually been my mentor at various points throughout my career and I run lots of things by her from how to present ideas that they get bought in the organization, and to who I should meet and get to know what types of projects I should be trying to work on when you think about entrepreneurship I, think the importance of mentorship. mentorship is is still very much. There a lot of waters that you're going to navigate that. You've not navigated before from trying to pitch your idea to investors to get that capital to working on a business plan to thinking about your inventory. When you're starting up so I say find someone who's who's done it before. Who can help show you? The ropes and really built build a relationship there to help you navigate those waters.

"They know the moment when they they know they're not in America. There's like there's a moment that happens and it's comes like some around junior high right. I think I can seven six craze six or seven grade. And you're like looking at my neighbor like Steve Myers. Like oh like you're white and I'm not wo and that's kind of shaking thing where just like things start to like change like oh like how people see me like. They're not seeing because this is what happens when you're young. You just see people and it's like your dad like you don't see your dad as a race. He's your dad right. It only as adult like. Oh my gosh. Israel's my Filipino. Because he's just always just been dad because you actually see is and you see your friends at young age for who they are but then when you start seeing identity and race it's like you see that first and then you've got to break through that to actually see who someone is again and it's so crazy. Yeah there's this moment. Where the sort of programming of race clicks on? I was like in sixth grade and everyone had to bring in food right in. My parents brought in fried rice and everyone flipped out. And they're like Oh. I Love Fried Rice and I was like wow okay. Wow franker up in Tennessee. Yeah that's crazy yeah. These are not heavily Asian populated. No I was the only Asian kid in my high school so being Asian like my thing and then I came out to La. And I was like oh I got a new thing. So many Asians out here. You know what's it like being the only Asian in the area You know it. Kinda sucks like I wanted to go with. My parents had a lot of sort of mistreatment at work. And Yeah there's a lot of stuff that Kinda makes me cringe to think about you. Know 'cause you you definitely have to explain yourself to people and you have to like work. Your personality ride their stereotypes. You know yeah. So how's weird basically? Yeah for me. It was around the same age actually like eleven twelve right there. Allies that the world outside of you sees you in a certain way. That's how it was for me so we wanted to ask you about your foray into directing about that project the fabulous Filipina brother. Yes I do. I'm finally directed my first film FABS Filipino. Brothers and It's fascinating because properties like seven hundred nine think and is the first time. I'm directing a film. I I wrote my brother. Darwinian really demand for summarize. My sister came in for some rewrites and is just the right time. It's it's a film that pitched I got funded the Philippines part of this whole Kinda new Asian media thing. We're doing you know. I pitched another store like a pitched as my big fat Greek Wedding Filipino. Style meets Pulp Fiction. Not The violence fiction book. The calamity a pulp fiction. And the and the the vignettes pulp fiction. So it's four brothers for vignettes and my brothers. It's just like a linear story told out of order around a Filipino wedding. So it's just like really indie kind of weird cool thing personal. Does it feel personal story? Every story is based on stories from my family is not autobiographical necessarily. But it's all everything yet. Based in truth even those fetched. And why did you want to do that at this time? This type of movie in this time and a lot of ways. The biggest thing is a platform for like me and my brothers. I'm going to direct sooner or later for Madrid. Something McCreevy apply any create a platform a story and like I wanted to create some my brothers. They're amazing amazing actors like my whole career. We've been altogether. They're wonderful actors in their own right and have like really careers. They haven't had some of the good fortune of some of the characters. I've had right the things I've seen them do that. Hollywood has not let them do yet. I'm directing you get do it and Yeah so like the all get to star in their own vignette. It's going to be crazy. It's going to be fun. There's actually another family member. Who's an actor in your larger family that I'm really excited to see these Hillary Bosco? Yes she's coming out and Birds OF PREY. Cassandra CAIN A lot of fans are like. How do you boss do that? I don't know and I it's been really special to me because she's my niece. She's my older brother. Derek's daughter but she's also my goddaughter so You know she calls Me Nina on Filipino Godfather. So it's like we always had a special connection and then just in the last year bringing her to events and being like getting introduced her to a town that I grew up in like this is the next generation of Bosko's and it's really beautiful. She's so beautiful and graceful. She's like and she's like classic oldest sister like she's really kind of like smart and like you know she's like the classic things that you felt like you needed to impart to her. Yeah of course I mean it's just like what we've been through and and try to avoid some mistakes but she's she's pretty good ahead on pretty good and there's other ones coming. I mean do so little brother I mean little SAS Emerson's come in she's doing she's like twenty crystal movie She's Great and the Aurora is like other cousins Sisters Kids Aurora in Phoenix. Like there's a whole another wave of Moscow's coming and some coming from the bay to musically it's GonNa be cool it's GonNa be cool. It is that time in our program when we ask our guests for their bad Asian confession so Dante. We basically hope you'll share something that made you wrongly incorrectly. Feel like a bad Asian. I mean I'm Filipino. So like we're already Badische to begin with to some degree that like these Asians are not regular Asian and then American like to. I'm so bad Asian. So check this out so produced a few films the Philippines. Now so I've been going back and forth and it's been part of my journey. I pivoted from Asian American filmmaking to this thing I coined new Asian media and New Asia. Media's a borderless Asian media so I've been like last ten years out of Hawaii and whatnot. We're doing an Asian American films and was like I wanted to cultivate our piece of the Pie. Six percent eight percent where we're at. I want to might be spine. Someone's like in a meeting like Dante was like what do you mean because Asian Americans are always about like their little piece of the Pie? I'm like okay like you. GotTa look at the world. We are the Pie I went. What as being like. We are the PIE and I was like. I gotta go to Asia and then I started going into Asia and the idea of going. We need to connect all my friends. Here that are well known filmmakers in front of and behind the camera. Let's connect to the power base that is Asia. Which is the money. We're trying to build celebrity systems out here. Every single country has their own celebrity system. Manila mainland China Singapore Malaysia. Indonesia light okay. Then now we started going into these countries and start producing films out there and creating creating stuff so now Manila right. So I've done to Manila and I'm in Manila. My first film out there and I'm Filipino. American they know me. I mean that's part of the reason why I'm in the room. Will I one of the biggest you know studios out there and everyone speaks English in Manila here until nobody's speaking English and Manila? And I'm bitching the movies may like it. I got the whole deck up there. And then she's just like McConnell and I looking at her like what she's like Madonna and I'm I'm looking around the room. Like what am I doing? And unlike like my my other producers from that. She's like how much how much I'm going to learn that we're that we're like them. I I gotTa Know Meccano. Need to know that because when they ask how much I need to come out with a price yeah I was not good there like and so she looked at me. She's like you don't Speak Tagalog. I'm like not not that much and she looked at me. I I'm American and she's like you didn't Filipino. Girls I was like. Oh so you're probably right I mean. Wow it's hilarious. I like you are really. You got roasted got roasted in the room. But they produced the movie and other kinds of American is expected to be fully bilingual. This thing about it is like I feel bad because he my friends that are Latino that like they could speak. You must be anything that might be a little. But I'm speaking more as go back at least for our family and like thinking about Filipinos like they're really into light fitting in we're a con is country got caused by China then. We got colonized by Spain for like hundreds of years. Then we got caught by America the last hundred years. So it's all about like fitting ends about my time like my grandparents. Afterwards who came to America it was like your American be American and so I think that I think it's changed now. The way the landscape of how what it is now. I wish we kind of held on some of our native tongues but I feel that. Hey there do you have a bad Asian confession you WANNA share with us. Call US at two one three nine eight six five six five two. That's two one three nine eight six five six five two. We might even play it on the show. Hi My name is Elliott. I grew up in Arcadia California which is a majority Asian suburb of Los Angeles. My Asian confession is that I didn't know whether my family spoke Cantonese or Mandarin in second or third grade. My teacher asked the classroom if our families folk any other languages at home Arkadiusz rules are very Chinese so most kids are applied with Cantonese or Mandarin when it was my furniture share. I said that I wasn't sure what they spoke. Both sounded like familiar firm. I knew that it was done for Chinese. I remember my teacher being pretty surprised that my uncertainty I went home to my older sister. What language you mom and Dad Peak in Mandarin? My sister responded speaking Anthony. You idiot high definitely never made that mistake again. That would probably the first time that I was intrigued by the idea. There's a ton of do one that goes into articulating and defining especially for the broader. Think too much for feeding the show I look forward to. I think he got degree And the big.

"dante" Discussed on Asian Enough
"You probably know him. Best as Rubio. The leader of the last boys in the nineties cult classic film Hook but Dante Bosca's career in Hollywood has spanned thirty years and he's worn so many hats over the course of that time Dante. Welcome to Asian enough. Yo what's up? How Ya Doing? Good Window Amen. I left my wallet in El Paso We joke around here. Yeah of course. Although I don't think Youtube was talking about this. I don't know what else again he was talking about. He wasn't talking about this. Elsa Gunda I feel like everyone who is in this El Segundo claims of course. But I don't think he was talking. I read an interview once that he just saw it on a map or something was going by. Lax and he thought it'd be a funny place to leave his wallet or something funny and now it's now it's now is affluent Elsa Gunda to buy a house out here. Yeah I've looked as well. It's not it's not happening daddy okay. Hook the nineteen ninety-one cult favorite reimagining of a Peter. Pan Lor starring Robin Williams. And Don Bosco you are. I'm just GONNA cut right to an icon. Come on come on man and you have been ever since this this role Rubio and we have so many questions for you. But we're going to start is what has revealed meant to you over. The course of the time. I mean is changed over the years. I did Rouphael when I was fifteen. Start when I was ten before was an actor. I was I'm from me and my brothers from the bay area right. And we're all artists and actors and musicians and poets and we start as break group in the Bay. Area called Street freaks. We popular was in the bay area. Kid You know grew up going to forty niners games in Oakland as games and we ended up dancing for the forty niners and the Oakland A.'s. Halftime shows thirty. Four thousand six hundred that kind of stuff then. We got scholarships the Ballet Company ballet and so we start studying ballet and it was like a real billion Elliott thing kids from St that they picked up and start the world ours and so like being an actor. Artists has been in my family's story since my earliest memories of whatever we were doing you know and so by the time I was fifteen and did hook it was like I mean I was you know somewhat prepared for it because I was studying acting for so long and studying the greats and then I was very much whereas work with greats worked with Spielberg maybe at the height of his powers. Dustin Hoffman is. He's on the Mount Rushmore of the actors. That changed the face of acting the seventy S and whatnot. You Got Robin. Williams is the Godfather improv acting. In one of the great you know give me. The list goes on Maggie. Smith said Bob. Hoskins is like every day is like what's going on here and so I was really prepared to just really do a great job but that never prepares you for character lasting twenty five years later. It's like now I've been Rubio longer than I haven't been Rubio. You know so you know you walk around. And now it's like it means something different to a whole generation as people tattoos of your fifteen year old face on their body crazy. Which you've seen with your I've seen with my own eyes. I've signed people's bodies at kamikaze tattooed on you know. And they name their kids after Rubio and their dogs after Rubio and it means something to just the people at large as far as like this rebel spirit you know and then in mean something completely different to a whole generation of Asian Americans where I get a lot of like. You're the first cool Asian that I ever saw on television as exactly what I was about to say. It's you and I'm dismayed that you hear so often not here and again when you're young you don't really think about it when you big movie in your teenager like even though I was like a trained actor and a pretty solid artists at fifteen is like I just WanNa be cool like plea at the for. The love of God can come out on Friday in theaters and when I go to school on Monday. Ken like some people. Think I'm cool. Where are you going to school at that point in in southern California I was going to school in Southern California? I was in high school Limit town called paramount. And it's right. You know right next to Compton. The crazy thing was this is the nineties s in we got into some trouble me and my brothers in the middle of shooting Hook. We got caught shoplifting. At Serena's mall yes. I needed some isotoner gloves. We needed some isotoner. Glove would use gloves and southern California. I don't know Jerry Rice War on I duNno had some is anyway. We got caught. My parents got so and again when you grown up in the neighborhood and paramount which is like site content but it's more Mexican than black and it's you know gang violence in the nineties and we have friends run drugs. Everything's a lot going on in your young mind like shoplifting is nowhere near anything else going on a neighbor but we got popped. We got in trouble and I was actually in the middle of shooting. Hook which is super strange and the guy that Catis history does mall was like watching. Because he'd seen me in a movie called perfect weapon he's like that's that do from perfect weapon and then. Oh my God. He's they're stealing isotoner gloves So we ended up getting bused to Orange County and started and finished our school at Orange County. The and then I was there when the hook came out. So it's kind like I was a kid in school and the movie came out and I went from a school. I was like predominantly black and Latino to a school in Orange County. That was I think there was twelve black kids in school And like it was like predominantly white. We were like. What are we doing here so that was a school that was that you were in? Hook was coming. Yeah that was I was in when he came out and I was. They thought it was cool. I mean we were cool are here with me and my brother like three. Brown brothers walking around campus with high hair and Super Hip hop kids and then the big movie comes out. And you're like that kid from that movie. I kinda always wished I was in my old school when it came out. Because know you get the extra On the hometown new school. And it's all weird already now. Super Weird Yeah. I was just wondering because being known as Rouphael Lavon people shouted to you on the street and you know I I mean. I'm sure you've gotten to this point where you're celebrating you. Lean into it but I was ever a moment where it was kind of like annoying. I'll give you an example. Yeah I wrote about the factory that produces Saracho Irwindale was producing smells. That seemed to irritate some neighbors and it took about six months of my life. You know that amazing staff. I broke that story and for a while. Everyone read that story Everyone knew me as the hot sauce guy would appear on TV and once they made the title cards Too Hot to handle and I was just like really sweaty so like every time I wanna Saracho was kind of like I appreciate the success and being known but also I'm a beautiful journalism. Butterfly recognize my patterns or these different things. Yeah would time you kind of get more graceful with it. It's a blessing and a curse right. Every actor that comes to town wants to hopefully do something that they'll be remembered for everyone and in fact matters ninety nine percent or more are not going to get that opportunity of mean. There's just not going to happen for them. Because Fast Luck Hollywood right. The Hollywood people was always get misconceive. Is like to get good as not lucky. That's your job. Get good the luck is having the right timing that someone wrote a character a year ago month ago. That's perfect for you right now. And somehow you got to read for it and you beat all the people out for that particular character. And then you in that character intersect at the right time that an audience out there in the world care about it because so many great performances that go on that just miss timing wise and and sometimes the right character the right actor the right moment comes in and something happens and all of a sudden that has impact and that's the luck right and we all hope sometime.

"About what you were saying about family and how you know for a kid actor you know a lot of it. I mean. Obviously it's talent of the child actor but also it's. It's the parents who are being supportive and providing that opportunity. I think for Filipino Americans. And I say markings to it's not really common to have parents supportive of arts fields or art jobs or that's like the stereotype right. What would you say to listeners? Who might be listening to this show and wanting to do things like acting or even filmmaking making or or some kind of creative thing but their parents just don't understand no one really like usually pushes their kids into the field of the arts? It's abstract strapped to a lot of people especially Asians that even though we value as Philippians like we all value seen dancing at home in the living room Phillipines so talented. Let's Kinda like what we do. We sing and dance and even other other Asian like Filipino. Sure you sing dance. They listen live. You can do that as a job. Yes not seen as a job you know. I feel like it's changing changing a little bit today. She says Moore faces in the world. That's happening not just like what I me or my family's done the last whatever few decades but also really upon on like a lot of the new youtubers out there as Raphael's and Ryan he hasn't kept Jama's and tenderly ghettos like really changing. What's the possibility of what's going on? But Yeah I think we were fortunate to degree me and my brothers is because we found success pretty early and I think even the my parents didn't really understand understand what we were doing and some days I still. I don't think they really truly understand what we do. Although I direct this film and my parents play Our parents in the movie actually since they retired there like my mom's done bunch of commercials and Jesus did like a TV show. Thing for like nurse Ratchet which is crazy and My Dad he doesn't book a lot of commercial work but he he does a lot of print work a good amount of print work. He told me he's he's not an actor he's a model and I was like you're right. You're right but we're fortunate when we were young we got so so much success even local success at a young age that they accomplice in US early. I mean that's what it comes down to like. It's no parent. Wants their kid be hurt you know and fail and the reality of our industry is what you're not gonNa make it like the reality he is like this whole town is not built for you to succeed and when I talk to artists and young artists is driven as you should be and to create your work. It's like you know I know the fact that no one's supposed to make it you're not really gonNA make it. It doesn't have to actually shouldn't really be about that Stop being good like being good at what you do what we do. As filmmakers and actors is just a craft you know like any other craft woodworker. It's like study trained on the Masters studium. Try to become a master. You know work. There's a poem in the book. The very short poem called advice the young artists and goes them seek out instead. He would've master if you after greatness. The aim is to impact the world and beat the catalyst godless for changes. Forget which name is you should want to be good more than you want to be famous the pursuit of this thing. It's like a religious event in your life. You know. Like it's a vocation. Almost like you do it. Could you have to do is like religion. There's like no evidence that any of it's it's true it's like you know what I'm saying but you just believe because there's faith you have faith and you move forward faith right. It's even worse than our energy because there is proof and the proof is you're not gonNA make it you're like at best a million to one shot. Maybe a ten million to one shot at times but you know if you work hard enough and you figure some things out and you get lucky like you make it so very weird thing to tell a young artist you're not gonNa make it but it just might make it because it happened to me in having a lot of friends of mine and it happens every day in this town if no race was specified on the Casting Cau- that just Matt White Ibook close to be a lot of white kids off Raphia whether it was a white role or black row. I was always the other choice at the final edition. If you're a person of color you're not being the white kids are their jobs every once in a while the cast murders aren't really seeing you the star quality and you the only focused on the surface but during that time amazing things start to happen. I was working as a child actor and I got a big break. How discovered by Steven Spielberg for this multicultural? Cooper missed the. The kids and their leader was me this Filipino. Red Try Hawk hip hop kid. Aw.

"I walk into a room in the eighties season. It just asked what are you. What are you I'm Filipino? It asked What is that as a kid? I realized likes quickly how to adapt as a kid. I realized that my identity man in less than getting the work my identity was malleable. Identity over time becomes missed this his role for a Chinese character. Straight up.

"Isn't a perfect movie but for me nights. Say A lot of kids who grew up in the ninety S. It is a freaking awesome movie. Just picture a bunch of kids running around in Never Neverland Fighting GROWNUPS AKA pirates. It's sort of a sequel to the story of Peter Pan. The boy who wouldn't grow up but but in this version directed by Steven Spielberg Peter Does grow up and he turns into a lawyer. Played by Robin Williams here. He is with Wendy now l.. Grandma Wendy played by Maggie Smith was in Howard laid you in Iraq to him blankets grandmother the thirteen year old granddaughter asleep in the bed. Moyer minute so when you decided not to go back to Napa more the brand I'm GonNa go get more tried to tease difficulty. Listen I'm not ready to Peter is such a grownup. He doesn't remember being Peter Pan but when his kids are taken away by his arch-rival Hook played by a wig. Did Moustachioed Dustin Hoffman. Peter must remember to be himself again. A kid who can fly so he can get to Neverland and save his own kids holes. Of course Peter or needs a little help from a ragtag group known as the lost boys led by a red and black haired punk rock meets skater boy named take. Ah Little. Did I know what I watched this film in the nineteen ninety s probably on VHS or TV that this kid playing Rubio was a Filipino. American actor named Dante Bosco. He'd actually been working in Hollywood as a child actor for several years before he landed the coveted role. All of Rubio. It might have been a small role in the big picture of that particular film. But it's one that people still talk about. He has his own instagram shifts and immediate generator. The people 'cause play has rubio a friend of mine told me her sister named her baby roof. You know no Mr Skunk too much moves you just a punk kid. I want to speak to a grownup auto suppliers. He's me we kill. Pirate so happens I am a lawyer. The film may have been about Pan and called Hook. The real fan favorite to this day is Rubio and with good reason he might have been the first Asian kid on a movie screen. That wasn't a stereotypical nerd. And and the iconic character has earned Don Bosco place in pop culture also due in part to his equally fan favourite roles like Prince Zuko in the Nickelodeon the animated series Avatar the last heir bender. I thought I had lost my honor and that somehow my father could return it to me but I know now that no one can give you your your honor.

Man is my fault. I I got a second chance today. Am I'll take a chance. I won't protect everybody from your right now by killing you.

That's the enemy. He can't be here. You know they was my we dealt with Lydia but him is a whole different story right and honestly he was crazy. Dante wasn't scared of jail or it wasn't even scared and they were going to kill him. Travel remorse so they need. You got to die so I love that. That's probably my favorite scene of the show.

Eh From the prison and then later she get into it but later she finds him and he's burning Dante's body outside the gates or whatever or maybe just inside the gates but she comes and puts her head on his shoulder and I think you know that's kind of a symbol would at least a okay for today. Who knows today? Zombie apocalypse and Rosetta is a very coveted woman. Okay so she got options right having attitude so Yeah so in other words the people I told you earlier they meet up.

Okay So then we have a real quick scene of Aaron hanging out with Gracie and this kind of adorable because remember came along. Alway we'll wind gracious game being judith. But to remember a long time ago we first met Aaron One of the things he did it was collect license plates from cars they were from different states. Eda they had tons of were bringing him back to his house and put them on the wall rely. I got one from this date. I that was like electing them. Now here she is saying the capital from each state got a car and then she's asking him to tell a story worry about each state that he visited or something that happened in there and it was Kinda cool because it told me a couple of things one ahrends traveling of proclivity. I guess his ability to want to go out and find people and bring them in and stuff he still has it well. Yeah that's how I was GONNA say I'm GonNa say he seems to have already Gr- agree because this is before the VPI and he's like yeah. I was in California for this and the fact that he put out these is price of there may sound like he must've traveled a lot all right into this year. Whatever the game is he tells her story whenever she points out a license plate so so she's like Sacramento California's Capitol? So tell me a story tell me a story about it and I'm like Oh. He must've just traveled a lot in the United States. We can fly miles house and he does tell a story kind of not that relevant. But it's like kinda relevant but this is like about eighty civilization. And what not those people idea he was he was at a village thinking. Like what was it like for those people and now they're gone you know what what were they like in his his mind's eye basically I'm telling her almost history Linley history. I lived history.
