"Legacy takes a blow, right? Legacy takes a huge blow. Yeah. You gotta then and now puts Canelo in the space of he's dependent on who he is fighting. To put a big numbers if he loses again. Right now he's still Canelo. He draws biblio. He'll draw anybody. Yeah. He loses again. You got to match him to draw. You got to give him a Benavidez. At least people, you know, a fight where people clamor to see. And I'm not sure there's another big name that really helps him like that. It's still the biggest star in Boston. Even if he loses is the thing is, like, even when Chavez lost. He still had Mexico behind him. Yeah, thank you. Big fights after that. Oh, you got to fight De La Hoya. Well, I mean, he lost Frankie Randall, he beat Frankie Randall. Yeah. He fought Oscar twice. And the first Oscar fight was like, it was to boost Oscar De La Hoya. Yeah. There is no superstar that could take another place that he could potentially fight. Maybe Benavidez, maybe? But Oscar was the guy. Yeah. Not yet. Put him over Canelo's time to put anyone over. No, he's not playing. But all let's say G three is a hell of a fight. Triple G wins, we're going to have a hell of a dialog about all these fights we've had. When it's time for Canelo to go though, he got to put over Xander. Got to put over yoga. I don't even care if you want to lose. We'll see. You can put him over with a win. Like Floyd did. Well, yeah. Put people over to win. Yeah, we'll see how that one plays out talking about David Benavidez. Dominated David lemieux. At one point he threw a combination that was like 20 punches, 7 uppercuts. 7 straight left. But out of the 20, there was 12. I pulled the wrong rings on. I told people to count through 12 in 20 bunches. 7 straight. No one does that. No. I've been talking about David Benavidez for how long? Yeah, but people say David lemieux can right now. I don't care, listen. This thing we call the eye test, right? I don't care who you are. Look, that wall, I can't throw a 20 punch combination against that wall. I throw all my shoulders down. Yeah, my arms be heard. David Benavidez two a 20 punch combination with 7 uppercuts and they were accurate. The punch placement was ridiculous. Yeah, you could say David lemieux can. He's not the fighter that he wants. It's very clear. But if you look at what Benavidez Benavidez did what he had to do, then play with his food. Nah, he went out there and wrecked him. Lemieux came to fight. And he got beat up. And I hear people was like, ah, and I was like, listen, man, I'm telling you, I'm not saying Benny is a Beacon yellow, but that's the right, that's the wrong fighter. You look at how he fights. He throws punches and doesn't care. That's how you beat Canelo. Yeah. I mean, bivol's best work was marching down Canelo, get him on the back foot, and just out throwing him. And the other thing is, when I started talking about Benavidez, you guys listened to it like way early in this podcast. I first heard about Benavidez through Abel, and he kept telling me he was big there. Yeah, he was like, there's this kid. He's 16 or 17 or however he was a sparring with COVID. And this when COVID was still like, he's sparring with triple G nobody can put him down. He was 16. He was getting out of his fat face. Everybody, they've been a beautiful fat kid. He was like two 80. But he was like the kids chin is ridiculous. Nobody can put them down. This is not covalent edge shriller. This is covalent as when he fought ward is number one and two pound for pound. You'll forget that. This is triple G when triple G was merciless in the middleweight division. They all sparred with never been a view. I asked triple Jesus. I got it on tape somewhere. Triple G is like, he's a problem. Because he throws a lot of punches and you don't know where they're coming from. It's like, you think they're going to stop me. He doesn't stop throwing. And then you hit him and he just walks through it. That's the key. Can he take Canelo's punch? Yes. He takes no sponge. That's that'll be the only question in that fight. Like he'll take an old point, like canal could outbox him, the upper body movement, the footwork, when Canelo far triple G, it was a footwork more than upper body move. He had to get out of there. Like usually like Danny Jacobs can use upper body moving, get out of the way stuff. We got a guy like David Benny who's super long and throws like, where are you gonna go? If you watch the vival fight when canel was trapped on the ropes, there was really nothing he could do. No, that's where he couldn't figure out. How do I get out of here? Yeah. And even if you block all those punches, the judges are like, what are you doing? You're not throwing anything back. And he's throwing. So, I mean, can I spend so much time blocking punches and dodging punches that he didn't land more than 6 punches around until round like some stupid, he didn't have time to throw punches. It's like, all right, there's three point shooters who are great when they're wide open. And then there's three points. He was like, Steph Curry, you could put hands in his face and it doesn't matter. Canelo fought the fight against bivouac looking for the open shot. And when he didn't get it, he didn't know what to do. Yep. He was stuck in that spot. They have been a viewer's gonna throw hands, it doesn't matter who's in front of him. Where they're going, what are you doing? He's going to chase you. He's going to throw punches. You're going to hit him. He's going to be like, so I can take this. People like Caleb playing. I said, I think he destroys Caleb. I need to see it. I still need to see it. That's another thing I need to see. The Charlotte fight, Jamal sheller. I need to see it. I think he beats the brakes off of Trump. I think I need to see. The next 18 months are going to be key for David benevolence. Now it's like, because he got 18 months to wait. No one got a fight on for 18 months. Right, so it's like Charlotte,.

"In his way mend fences. I just think it's it's time for some of our dearest friends around the world in a pontiac grid about this Tony one on break. Because this is a fundamentally a great step forward for global security It's three with all this diplomatic hullaballoo. China has remained relatively quiet even as more and more countries club together against it is a group of big countries in the asia pacific which actually was talking about things like joint disaster relief. But then you've notice more. Recently that communicates took much more consistent about a free open prosperous rules based and inclusive indo pacific. David benny our beijing. Bureau chief and that to diplomats is code for dealing with the disruptive rise of china in the region and china's willingness to throw its weight around economically or even physically in the south china sea. And that given this still fairly loose meeting these four countries a new lease life. But what exactly do you mean there on the on the throwing its weight around. China has some very aggressive territorial claims. And it's willing to enforce those japan which has a dispute over china in the east china sea with some islands that japan controls much more frequently united see chinese fishing boats. Chinese naval vessels coast. Guard vessels testing japan's responses. In india. we saw some very dramatic border clashes and high mountains in the himalayas and australia has been subjected to what books a lot like a very organized campaign of coercion off. The australian government called for an independent inquiry into the origins of the coven nineteen pandemic china basically started slapping bans on the import of everything from coking coal to massive types on wine bali. Trench take advantage of the fact that australia sells a tremendous amount of stuff to china. And so why is it that china has been so specifically assertive in that specific region. There's a recent answer to that question which is do with china feeling. Self confidence is a much stronger wealthier country but there's a historic argument to when china looks back at his history over the last several hundred years. The idea that when it was week it's weakness was seen by farmhouse bullying china and carving away. Bits of territory whether that was the british taking hong kong russians grabbing great chunks of northeastern china. There's a very very clearly in chinese psyche that territorial integrity is how you demonstrate that you are a healthy strong confident china and today's meeting of the quad comes out on the heels of the announcement of the aucas alliance that we've spoken about on the show. What do you think the chinese communist party makes of all these alliances clearly designed against them. The conclusion that american claims the warm words about how alliances are positive force in world of as the words joe biden news at the united nations. General is under. He talked about america opposing attempts by stronger countries to dominate weaker. Ones whether through changes to territory by force economic coercion technical exploitation or disinformation china's prejudice. Is that all that soft. So that's just cover for american again about trying to stop china's rise because america doesn't want to share the top table and interesting. The row with france. France is extreme dissatisfaction does notice canceling a big submarine contracts but for oldham secrecy and informing this new alliance. When a french minister accused bersin overturning. American fold and accepting a former vassal status. That language could friendly come straight out of the pages of the people's daily here in beijing because that's absolute vindication for china's world view. Then it makes sense that. Australia would rather be america's vassal that an equal partner of another mid-size country france because china's world view is that the world is run by very small number of very big countries and to massimo than any other and that everyone else basically is trying to work out how to extend it interest when it comes to china or america so with all of the attention on how power such as france have responded to august. How has has china responded to it. Today we have not seen tremendous expressions in solidarity with france. And that's interesting. Because normally whenever french political leaders hold on europe to pursue strategic autonomy. The chinese love. They praised them because they understand that when the french talk about strategic ptolemy places like indo pacific that's code for a very gaullist idea that europe should avoid falling in line with the americans. You're seeing really quite mild by chinese standards. Grumbling about america forming. Hold war leaks by the standards of some really ferocious america-bashing we've seen in recent months it's been road clearing as opposed to kind of yelling from the windows. And why do you suppose. China's response has been restrained than it's a mixture. i think for the most simple level. There's a benefit in just letting france in america and the british few themselves without stopping. There is a sense that china doesn't like siding with losers and i spoke to one prominent chinese scholar who said that france lost face. There's a serious security calculations this too. Which is that. China will vote spent a fortune on building up. Its military still has relatively weak anti-submarine capabilities and the kind of nicholas submarines that australia says it wants to buy. They are the kind of deep water forced. Undetectable submarines that you want if the royal. Australian navy is not about guarding the seas close to australia's shoes but actually becoming much more of a force projection to for the american alliance you need those nuclear submarines if you want to look stealthily in water given all those strategic considerations a. tempting to imagine that what is going on here is what the chinese communist party likes to think is going on here. That this really is a an alignment of powers all over the world. Either for or against china that very simple casting of things actually has a nugget of truth in it doesn't it will rule one of our doors that sometimes you're right. They are actually often. You and i think china's own aggression in so many ways is changing the rules of its home region. I think the fact that all sorts of countries who claims the idea that trade relationship with china could be separated from all of us security concerns and australia's and absolute example that i think that calculation is just changing because china's willingness to impose economic sanctions. Or it's actually stage. Physical clashes the same calculations that gave rise so orcas that meeting at the white house with leaders today. Japan is realizing it needs to stop being a this power. India is far more tolerant of american hardware and allies in its home region. That'll be the test squad. It's still an unproven alliance. But i think what it shows. Is that the idea. That countries didn't wants to choose between that. Profitable trade relationship with china and taking china's seriously as potential security threats in international politics. Saying you don't want to choose is a wish not a strategy and sometimes wishes just run out of road. Thanks very much for joining us.

"Four. Our guest this week is the co-creator co writer of all six episodes of netflix comedy. The chair amanda peet is best known for her onscreen roles in such tv series as togetherness brock meyer studio sixty on the sunset strip. As well as jack and jill the share marks her debut as a writer and showrunner and series counts her husband. David benny off and his fellow. Game of thrones collaborator. Dan weiss among its exact producers. Thanks for joining us. Amanda thanks for having me so let's start at the beginning. How did the chair come together. I was working on this idea. I wanted to write something for debut. Pause 'cause. I loved working with him so much and thought he was so brilliant and transparent. And so was i was Messing around because idea of a widower whom daughter goes to college and then he starts dating his boss and He likes the pages i gave him. But it wasn't really a story. And then i started thinking about. What if he you know was a bit of a loose cannon and i started thinking about an english department and what if he tends grasp. This woman who was his newly appointed supervisor had to kind of Respond to this transgression as his boss. i was really into the idea of doing a romantic comedy. How long had you been working on on. What became the chair. You know. I remember a few years ago that you were working with. Benny often weiss on scripted series for hbo before their deal expired there but to my knowledge nothing ever became of that there was was that where the the chair started. Obviously you got you. And you and jay did togetherness for for hbo. I was not working on anything. With and david i worked on saying with david like hand years ago but No i don't know maybe it's been about. It's been over two years. Probably since i sat with jay and a coffee shop and eagle rock and gave him this fifty pages of a non story. So i'm very curious about about your your your careers fascinating. Look obviously big fans of yours both of us are are die. Hard brock meyer fans. I can speak for myself here. I absolutely loved togetherness and it was heartbroken when that show move forward but at what point in your career did did writing and creating a scripted series. Become a priority for you. But i think unless you're on the very top echelon of actresses who are you know approaching fifty. You're you're not necessarily getting a whole lot of interesting writing. And i had dabbled in college and and then i think marrying david you know helped me realize that i really did enjoy writing and that It was a way to sort of take the control back because after you're just constantly waiting for the phone tearing it's sort of like having a terrible boyfriend or girlfriend and so obviously writing is something you can do on your own and i really liked that freedom and i liked the idea that i could work and create. Where when. I wasn't hired by somebody when you've been when you've been doing that when you've been conceiving of projects. How often have you been. Conceiving of them in terms of this is a role. I would like to play. This is something for me as an actor versus this is for me as a writer and producer but not to act in. It always starts out as something. I wanna act in. It always starts out as like a woman in her forties funded But i swear to. God i'm not lying. It's just not inspiring. When i think of myself and it's deeply inspiring when i think about somebody else you know like sarah parker or stan. Oh I just can't get it up for myself. I did read that. You wrote the series with santo in mind so obviously at point when you moved on from seeing yourself into seeing sandra in that. Why was she the one that you wanted for this. And how did you ultimately cast her. Considering she's constantly receiving offers just inundated from everything. I hear you know. I saw her in this play called. Stop kiss at the public with jessica hacked and like nineteen ninety eight at. It was one of those searing performances and i always thought she was incredibly funny and also really. I hope this sounds okay. But like really send shaw and a really good person to you. Know to put into Have a romance. Which is part of why i think killing works so beautifully. 'cause she has such kind of She so She's still alive and sexual and has such logging and i don't think i'll actresses do or actors and i really wanted that. I wanted this to be the sounds so badly. But i wanted to do like a middle aged love store. You mentioned on deadly boring so okay so you have the idea then the you you want this sensual as you say actress to to be in the party you want to build around her. How did you broach the part tour. And then what were the conversations around the fact that you know as as leslie said she gets lots of opera. She does have another ongoing series. She's working on et cetera. I grew up with a A lot of friends grew up in bicultural households. And i think she responded to the idea that That we were gonna make that part of the story and that she was going to be a a single ball at that. There was gonna be a transracial adoption. I think both of us are really interested in foreground. Dang and alternative family. And i think he thinks you responded to.

Achilles and Patroclus in Modern Media

"A couple of episodes are discussed the mythological figures Achilles and Patrick lists and the depiction in ancient texts most notably in his Iliad I don't want to recap episode to thoroughly. So if that sounds interesting to you, I suggest you just go listen to that episode, but I will say a few things necessary background Achilles some. Patrick lists here is off the Trojan War, our break episode which depicted in the Iliad although there is genuinely some ambiguity as to the exact nature of their relationship in the Iliad their relationship is very intense and very important to the plot character arcs and emotional hot of that poll. What is not ambiguous is how their relationship is on the stood in the later Greek texts we discussed. So we discussed east glosses. Play the domes which survives only in fragments famous speech impetus symposium, Ace, Kaz courtroom speech against to Marcus all of which depict achilleas and Patrick lows in a sexual and romantic relationship. As we discussed earlier episode, those works stand relationship in a way that is anachronistic to the Iliad, but we nevertheless thought it was important to note that is reading is a very old an integral part of the evolution of the myth. That you can't really get away from if you're talking about them today speaking of the evolution of this myth, we also spent a bit of time talking about how although people generally appeal to Hermosa when discussing whether Achilles in Patrick Louis Wet. Really love this. Is True one canonical version of the myths in which they feature, and we would be doing them a disservice to understand as early as the real story and every following version as accurate or inaccurate by how it compares to that. I bring this up because it's very easy to find audibles and people talking about how modern adaptations on any good because then not accurate and these articles that generally quiet nitpicky and lazy, and I wanted to know this specifically. So we don't do that sort of thing ourselves. It's inevitable and desirable when adapting these myths into new mediums and feel like very different cultures than the original. That heard this man to make changes just it's necessary to on Seoul's materials while doing. So so we got a comment on differences here, but the compensation will be more like why those changes get made and do we think it works as opposed to just being like well in the Ilia? Data. So with that background out of the way, we're going to talk about Wolfgang Petersen's two thousand four, maybe Troy Madeline Milas to eleven novel the Sung Achilles and the twentieth eighteen BBC mini series story full of the city I think he ranked in the order of like worst to best in my opinion but okay, you may disagree. That was not why I decided to order them. In that way I just thought we'd chronologically but that's fine. I mean now that you said that you did it chronologically and I also view that as West best that makes me feel positive that maybe like an even better adaptation that I genuinely think is good it's coming to clear I don't love any of the music specifically. In seven years but will like no. Sorry in five years because they've come out every seven years how to for two thousand eleven two thousand eighteen. Cool. Okay. Nice. So. We'll be watching an amazing adaptation, the Trojan War with that we will love anyway. So we're going to begin with the to troy maybe the film for it was directed by Wolfgang, pay the send styles Brad Pitt Kilis who just a very two thousand thing to have. It was written by then relative newcomer David Benny off which explains why it's a bit of a dry run, the game of thrones. I that sounds up its vibe. I, was gonNA. Tell you some fun facts about this movie but I decided that they weren't that fun. I cut them all but I'm GONNA I kept one which I tell you solely because it might make you upset Australian. Fun Fact No it's not. So all of the actors in this speak in that accents with the exception of Eric Bana Rosebud, the to Australian actress who had told that they had to get rid of their accents. And I think that's disgusting screw you. Wolfgang. Petersen. I have no problem with like. Okay. You have to change accidents that doesn't sound like a fantasy will like I've whatever accent I have a problem with that and I mean like this some stuff to say about that. But if doing that because you want all your actors to have a consistent accent. Okay. But if you just hate the way Australians, tall, that's not acceptable. Garrett hedlund obvious American accent fine. But Eric Basil accent is absolutely illegal. Sorry. Thinking recompense the twenty twenty, five trae. Offers how the TROJANS are all. Star. I like it.
