Rhonda Stoppe: In Marriage, Love Is to Be a Friend
"Well, that's one of the key things you've been married 36 years, Jean and I've been married 32. How about you and Dana going on 35? Okay, so 38 now. Oh, 38. Okay, so when you see that, I mean, it can be pretty dry at times. And I'm sure there's a spouse, a wife or a husband listening right now going, yeah, we kind of hit the desert island 12 years ago, or 15 years ago. For that parched couple who, you know, they haven't kept with it. They haven't romanced each other. They haven't done the hard work, which it really is hard work. I think the first thing I would say is, one of the couple is listening today, not both of them. And they're thinking, oh, I wish he was listening to this. I wish she was listening to that. And my advice is let it begin with you. Don't wait until he becomes the man you wanted him to be. Yeah, but here's the irritating part. It's the irritating part. How do you overcome the irritating part to say, okay, it's going to start with me. I'm going to act differently. I'm going to act more excited or whatever. For me. Yes. Number one, it was finding great mentors. It was finding couples. We worked in youth ministry, so we got to see the parents of our youth. And the ones who still held hands when they walked in the door at church, the one who laughed at each other's jokes, winked at each other across the room. I'm like, what do you know? And we just became friends with them. What did they say? I always say old ladies. Old ladies know stuff, you know, Titus two calls the older women to teach the younger how to love their husbands, and that word love is to be his friend. It's how to be his friend. When we get married, our husbands oftentimes are thinking, this woman's gonna be my friend. She's gonna be my support, my encourager. And I think we get so busy about the business of life. We forget that.

Like i thought that. I felt that was put not such a good idea because of those times the other thing was that we also had kids had cigarettes. Do you remember what was strange. Encourage children twenty of them with karen tips on the end and it was a my parents smoked and my dad would come by forty ruffles. One eight one package of for you. Someone you get a nice to revisit the space dust according to this is the kind of thing you in daniel craig adding this. Oh we were literally ripped to the tits spiced based us back in those days daniel craig because you get it for one hundred million film you a lot of space you get a lot of space to us and you want a big actors alike. So yeah he sort of went onto become james bond. Get up for. Everyone bright fisher. I don't know where things went wrong. But our pas deviated around about the age of seventeen nothing lease your breakfast. Show is on the bond film industry defer. Do you like watching him and bundled you now. I think he's the best. But i also can't help thinking that bond does essentially sort of is what brought cinema to it's knees the fact they keep putting it off means that no one can go see the film the horrible thing where it's bondage to be selfless and roic and in the end the most bond life thing to do would be to carry on carry on and give let yes not make quite as much money may be as you would have done but say some cinemas. Now you gotta worry about that. No we don't talk. We didn't fall out. We keep in touch. Did you just call him short on we did. We did a production of merit saad in the national youth theatre which is quite brutal. The marquis decide when you're sort of fourteen fifteen was quite on. Yeah that's was good. It was quite a radical theater group. And you want to be a serious actor. I just wanted to just was something that i've always wanted to do and i always felt like i was. I was fortunate i did. I did a play in the west end which was described by. The standards of the worst thing of that one was owned. Yes right yeah. I able to recognize it from the description. But i was that your poster.

We did a couple of plays on a couple of things on tv. We should never really. And it was something that i saw. I thought of thought that. That was what i would end up doing. And i never really did which was always a bit of a shame. Because of that ship has sailed i think. Now you and then university or polytechnic. And then christie's i want to get too far from the week. Crunchies come up. Next childhood is well no not so much the bacon we crunchies. I feel why people say well. It's the greatest crisp and for me.

Shrubs vs Trees With Ken Druse
"Shrubs versus trees. We did shrubs last time. Both are woody plants. They're a little bit different. But there's not this precise kind of difference it it has more to do with. It has a trunk a certain amount of the way up before it branches out into other stems at the idea. Tree versus shrub versus rupture. Yeah and it can be evergreen or can be needled evergreen or could be deciduous losing its leaves and the fall. Yeah i mean. I have two trees among my favorite trees that are shrubs. Well never mind. Sorry i just the whole thing but the native white pine eastern white pine pines strobes. There's a a a selection or whatever called Pines strobes nayna or small. It dwarf white pine. I planted them thirty years ago. Have a couple of other giant bond size. So it's the it's the tree but it's in a small form in is shrimp as a tree. We'll still the still start with a single stem. So i guess it's a tree. It's a dwarf tree. Yeah and then similarly came in the mail twenty five years ago or more probably tiny tiny little thing a grafted thing cutting and It's a cordless coosa. That's name whose name is lust garten weeping remain on long island barren less garden and so forth who who introduced it. And and so it's it's small it's Five feet tall and nine or ten feet across you know it's bound and so but it's accordance cosa. It's a tree but it's not a tree. Oh sorry i think we just accept dwarf and weeping trees as trees al qaeda and we we include giant sequoias as trees because there's quite a range but they do have the single stemming common indeed so where do you wanna start i mean i know you're three-man do mentioned so many things i was thinking of what makes a tree a favorite And i started making a list. It's health it's auditee. Its uniqueness history. It's color shape. It spark it's leap or needles. It's uses its design uses. Stopped me persona. We just love them and and you mentioned something about said grafting but most of the trees that we buy. That are unusual or grafted To a an understock That is the same species but not offered or not different but a lot of trees are grown from seed. I have some very unusual trees that finally after eight years flower buds. All over them. And i'll find out what happens with them. They are favorites. If they indeed performed correctly and sometimes you can start trees from cuttings but as a little bit difficult to start treaties from cuttings because plants. That are mature. Don't easily route and trees. That's another characteristic. Generally mature
Remembering Our Belonging
"And welcome. Some really glad to be with you. Were exploring tonight part two. It's a continued reflection on belonging and the pathways to belonging and as you know as social beings belonging the urge for belongings in our dna and the research. The growing research on our need to belong is. It's very very striking for us. Human jr that how much the sense of connection having active relationships impacts our health our happiness or longevity and it's true for poor for wealthy across all populations our relationship and feelings of connection matter and as we know of course there's all sorts of unhealthy versions of connecting heard. One story of these three novices in i see side monastery and they got caught in a kind of minnie's nami and got stranded on an island They'd been voting got stranded on an island hundreds of miles away and so after keeping themselves alive for several weeks they found a cave and it had zafy. who's in it sitting cushions. You never know on on these desert islands and they sat down in the spirit of the cave began communicating in an echoing voice. Saying you know you found your way to the funk spot on the island and you properly assumed often i will grant you three wishes as the first i one of the novices will my wishes to return to the monastery and vish he disappeared. He was gone in the second set. I two i also on return to the monastery. I you know wanna learn at the feet of my beloved abbott shusha. He was gone to and the third side. You know these friends have been my song my community. I miss them and i want them back rush. So as you know when we don't have a secure sense of belonging we develop either. It's unhealthy attachments. Were kind of like codependence. And the and the like are we move more. Towards avoidance were. There's aversive nece towards others and we either push away or we withdraw ourselves yet if we step back and we really look in the deepest way even when we've had bad formative attachments even when there's a sense that are belonging has been severed through harm from our caregivers and trauma and the way the society treats us three reality is. We can never be removed from this web of a living dynamic energy that we belong to the reality is our living forms are inextricably embedded in this natural world. I read a an interesting article in the new york times This is research. That's been done in deep forests and how there are fungal threads that are connecting all the trees and all the even trees of different species throughout the forest and they're responsible for communication between the trees and the flow of nutrients often from the older trees to the younger trees. We are made of an embedded in this living world. You know our deepest nature is that basic aliveness an awareness and love that really gives rise to this world so we're reflecting on belonging and the gift when we intuit and trust star. Nate is a very profound sense of peace when we belong when there's that sense of one nisar connection. There's nothing out there that threatens us. Everything's part of our hearts and for me. The best words that describe belonging are feeling totally at home. You know at home for me with my life in the world. there's a sense of being part of the living world part of a presence. It's larger than our small self and also one with that larger presence so we're holding the world in our heart now. Some of you may be listening right now and what i'm saying sounds abstract. You know just otherworldly and yet most of you have had tastes of true belonging. It might not have had conscious tastes because we we tend to kind of skim over those moments and re fixate on fears really quickly yet. We couldn't long to belong unless we had some taste of it. So you might sense when you've had tastes for many of us. It's when our minds stoop quiet down. It doesn't happen often but it can happen. Perhaps there's a sense of belonging when there's that absurd. Your wave for of loving for a deer one could be outside that wonder at the stars or gratitude. When someone's kind you know maybe a feeling of care compassion. When there's someone who's hurting
Must Have Shrubs With Ken Druse
"This time to try to narrow down our list of must have shrubs to the real standouts and tell us why i can margaret. I know you'll never get it to three. It's funny you said that because when we first started talking about it you said one and both of us that we can't pick one. Can we even pick three right So which of your books. We always give copy of what looks only talk on the show at with the transcript of the show. What do you think i mean. Is this one for shade gardeners this one for. What's this one for a cheat garden shade garden would be a good a good one. That's always a huge hit so good good. Good good So we're at you. And i in our lives are at what a another expert friend says is the shrub season of our lives which is sort of rather than crawling around dealing with lots of fussy high maintenance perennials. It's kinda great to have some big fillers like mature shrubs to do a lot of showing off and yet not ask a lot of us. So where do we begin. What's a shroud. i guess. Well a strobe is a multi stemmed plant of woody plant and i guess that's sort of describes a tree would have one trunk one stem herbaceous plants die down to the ground soft tissues and shrub is a woody plant. That is bushy bush. I don't like that word for describing his trip but it's rub can be bushy. Okay okay and we should say before we start naming our desert island trump's that we didn't include khanna first because really that can that's a whole other conversation So many shapes and colors and textures among those so Do you remember your first. Trump been is still there and is it a favourite or it didn't make the list. Well i get. I get to pick three right okay. You want me to tell you. My first well you said conifers. And i'm not going to talk about converse but my one of my favorites shrubs is. Evergreen is a what is called a broad lead evergreen and it's a bucks it's a kind of boxwood. I have too many of them. And it's a box with semper barons. Graham blondie yes and it is one of the most colome ner plants i've ever seen really but It's a shrub and it's minor. There's probably i have some. That are like seven feet tall and fifteen inches. Wanted if you can imagine that. They're they're like punctuation marks. You know they're like exclamation marks in the garden. And as i said. I have too many because when i first got i always wanted them and then a nursery not too far from here a lot of them. Nobody bought them and the price kept going lower and lower and lower. I think i have made. I may have twentieth them when they were eight dollars a piece. Wow that's a lot of exclamations. A long time. I know and i i also keep moving them. I just moved three boy Son they want son you know. I'm sure they would love son. But i have all my box with. I don't have any full sun. But i have some of my boxwoods in quite a bit of shade and they stay calendar. Sometimes i tie them up because the snow might split them a little bit or you know splayed them. They don't break. But i do. I do tai the ones that are floppy up for the winter. And i love it if you says boxwood called graham. Landy columbia okay. I don't actually have any evergreen things at all on my list whether broadleaf or coniferous And i was thinking when we started this conversation today on the phone that my first trump passion was the genus vibe burnham. In back in the day we had a lot of divi burnham's like the double file and so forth that turned out to be kind of invasive and a lot of areas of the country. So i don't grow those anymore. But lately i've been cultivating more and more native ones like the maple leaf a full liam then tatum the arrow would and so forth So that was kind of where my shrub journey began. But the thing. I have the most of you said you have a lot of grand. Blondie is winter. Barry holly speaking of things. And i don't know what came over me. I mean it was the birds that came over me early on here in this rural place having been grown up in the city. You know coming here meeting all the birds and knowing that learning that they liked some of them liked fruit and that the native hollies were one of the ways to fuel the migration in the wintertime. And i planted about forty five or fifty of them in three very large groups in different directions toward the perimeter of the property but in different directions where i can see them from key windows in the house at a distance in the winter and all different varieties and Big ones small ones. I got a lot of fruit and birds a like very much. And yeah so waxwings and robins like in you know hunt flocks at one hundred or whatever at a time will come in right around now november ish and again to pick over at At the first snowfall and so forth and they'll strip them all pretty early on but one trick with winterbourne. Hollies if you want some that will last longer for your visual interest. The non red varieties they. The birds leave them longer. They're not as interested in them. So many yellowish orange ones and so the lighter colored ones and the winter

Desert Island Recordings - Iron Curtain Innocence by Bobb Trimble
"As idiosyncratic and hyperbolic as we absolutely always are. We certainly are not the only Bob Trimble apologists in the realm of music writing a quote from the Private Press Bible. Acid archives starts with this description by Aaron Molinski on Bob Tremble. I will make the bold claim that Bob Trimble's to albums are the best self released albums not just of the eighties and not just the psych genre but possibly in all of rock. Bob's music is able to bring a listener into a new and bizarre world in mere seconds while both his first album and his second harvest of dreams our other worldly masterworks of detached Psychedelia today with to focus on the first. There are so many amazing private press albums that are true. `Isolation Records Nineteen Eighties Iron Curtain. Innocence is a perfect example for this case study because of its utterly unique sound and the decent amount of information available about the record which helps us a lot. It's a story that can be told with realistic honesty whereas so many other private press record just rumors and tall tales. In the beginning Bob Dribble owned just three rock and roll records the Beatles second album more of the monkees and dot records oldies collection featuring the Classic Sea of love by Phil Phillips. These record carry a weight that would mold trimble sound the Beatles buoyant harmonies the Monkees Mirth full melodies Phillips's soul-stirring reverb growing up in central Massachusetts. Trimble would eventually play in bands in high school and would end up on the outskirts of Forster's worm town scene which was primarily known for punk music. Trimble worked at his dad's bicycle shop in poured all his money into studio recordings and eventually into getting his records pressed Iron Curtain. Innocence started its journey. When Trimble wrote a song that he thought would make for great single one mile from Heaven. He firmly believe it would be the track that brought him recognition. It was also one of the first songs he'd ever written. He went to a nearby studio called country. Thunder sound and recorded a couple of versions of the song a longer and more complete version and a shorter more radio friendly version. The song he recorded for the B. side was called killed the hands of an unknown Rockstar. When Trimble received the completed forty five. He was disappointed with a hollow tinny sound and decided not to release it dismayed he thought about hanging it up and stopped recording for about a year stating. I just didn't think my songs were original enough and different enough boy howdy. He came back with a redefined vision of originality. He went to a couple other studios and recorded an album's worth of material iron curtain. Innocence was recorded without a band. Despite the violent reactions being credited on the record sleeve is just Bob with a couple of the studio engineers helping out on Bass and drums the recording is rudimentary and Lo fi. But at the same time it is distinctly layered with Beatles soundtracks and sprinkles of Mug embedded throughout. The engineer seemed to be excited to fully humor all of the bizarre studio request as a break from their normal home desires of the usual patrons where the drums are obviously vanilla. The Guitar is very distinct. For young. Inauspicious musician Trimble. Truly had a remarkable guitar sound that is fully realized in instantly recognisable which is certainly an exception from the typical boilerplate instrumentation and most private press records. Hell even a lot of the major label stuff too for that matter. Triples voice is without question the most enticing factor on the record a Martian Siren. Song that has a exotic glassy feminine presence. That soaks a room in dizzying desperation. Reality Tearing beautiful for certain but also very cold it's much closer to Marc Bolan. Warbling as he's using his feather boa to restrict his air pipe during auto erotic fixation or severe trying his hand at opera than it is to any of his beloved sixties Silky vocalist. The lyrics reek of loneliness. But in a clove smoking teenage poet sense more than a man at the end of his rope. Tired tropes and tiny fragments of generic psychedelic. Forgeries are present but still packing a motive punch when joined with Eleftherios. Voice and the scintillating guitar originally called World of Lies Trimble settled on the title Iron Curtain. Innocence as a on the ever presence of the Cold War a theme. That never seems to come up in the actual lyrics. Trimble had five hundred. Copies pressed bought the first three hundred and disbursed them as best he could. By hawking them at local record shops getting them in the hands of college radio deejays and giving them to friends and Family

Thing is fat. Yeah, if you're subscribed, you get all of the episodes. Up until the day that you get stranded and then after that you get any new episodes because. Unfortunately! Five G. doesn't stretch to this desert island. My first podcast, the I choose would be the latest podcast. litigious smell full so l.. T. U. R. G.. I S. T. S.. It mean so the literatures podcast. Spare, running theme. Hey, you might recognize. It's hosted by Michael Gungor and a guy called Science Mike. WHO's the author of the book I'm reading at the moment and this podcast.

Think it was a sky involved in some kind of signs, but might have been biology. A chop Yeah, he's really funny guy and the thing I love about as well with his particular podcast is the the ads that he does all products that he actually uses endorses himself. It's not that this company is asked him to advertise their product. It's things that he uses in his day to day life, and so I really kind of trust his. On, not as well. Really Good? Yeah Oh, I'm podcast France around my final podcast is a podcast called getting curious by a GEICO. Jonathan Van Ness. If you've heard Jonathan Van Ness. Jerry you might have done I've. Said Jonathan Vanessa is grooming specialist on query that Netflix show that you might hurt. So you must have Jonathan then I don't. He's the guy we how long. Did. Okay. Definitely recommend watching queer eye. It's an amazing show. I should've picked it as one of my TV shows. But his podcast is about forty five minutes long, and he just has a conversation with someone and every single episode. He basically asked that person. The question kind of goes into it, but he's had all kinds of people from former presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren learn all the way through to daily the diver, Jamila. Djamil Reese Witherspoon and all kinds of people just kind of really getting to the heart of what is important to those people that my three-putt costs what about you? Will you mentioned him. Already I'M GONNA. Go Joe Rogan thought you would not only, is he? The podcast King because he's done this for I think I seven years now. The really long ideas. Every Tom Dick and Harry on his show yeah. I've just watched one with Brian Cox which just blew my mind talking about possible and really advanced physics, but you. It in such a good a good way, yeah, Nova Place! Do you not Jerome Show? Is these the master of sitting that enlisting right union stuns that the passengers got on the master in that food.

Another studio album in the works at the moment. while. Yeah, say yes, that's my first choice as The blackout album by Metallica, my second choice. Is mainly just because you wouldn't let me have the film series of chosen guardians of the galaxy soundtrack. If you've heard soundtrack of that film before I, it is an incredible soundtrack. It's got some great bangers from kind of the seventy s and eighty s on it. and. Some good own John and stuff like that. Very Great. Everything, yes, it's just a nice feel good album. Onto going to cheer you up. My final option. is an album by an autism gungor. Gungor band the I became a fan of. Wada was a Christian. They were a Christian band and they left Christianity kind of at the same time that I was and so this album wildlife was written in a period where the ban Ganga were going through a faith transition similar to the one that I went three. And so a lot of the songs on, it are very personal to me. They mean a lot to me. But it's also a an album that is essentially written about the human life, so essentially songs it take you right from the moment of birth all the way through to death and talking about different aspects of life, so it's really really cool album. I definitely recommend check. With slut into. Music Drummer Oh. This is a this is a tough one. So that very experimental they used to do worship music that I really do that anymore. It's very interesting that they're very very good. Musicians spit jazzy. Is it very instrumental that yeah, very instruments, who and playing with words and sounds and stuff like that? What are your options Jay in my options kind of follow the theme of. Everything That's one. I'M GONNA go full one of the best of albums I owned which was on a CD player with headphones that just attached by the CD your orders, one unit, and I the album. American idiot by. Green Day such releases. He vows album. Yes, yeah, yeah is a law on it and then. A Very Long. You got heavy guitars. Yeah I. I've a lot of memories over, and because he was the only see the iron for long time I was listening Pete Yeah, so it's almost as if I if I every single be of every single song. Is I WANNA property rock. It's very singable as well if you lie singing. Yeah to great kind of pop punk album, isn't it? You get a bit of Everythin-? Nice so that's my album. It will give me the. Give, me some memories, but ultimately some good fucking music. Secondly into the album Multi Deja is my beautiful DOPP twisted fantasy, a west, okay, slightly different genre from the best Kanye West out with my opinion again, a bit of everything on the loads of autism a lot of individual songs. I could keep playing on repeat as well. My last one just to round off my music on those bond Jason Stacy's yeah. I've heard chasing status. you better chase okay I is that normal idols album? She's one of the ones when I think about two thousand eight nine. They released it. On, his bedroom base a bit of garbage. Some kind of reggae style beads all kinds of music on that again. It's also an album I see live few times while being performed. Memories one of my good friends with Louis Louis of memories of skin? KEOWN's a over these songs. On random warehouse in Bristol Pretty Cool Amazing Okay so we've gone through some films. We've gone through some music. But I feel like on this island economic want some times where you have a bit of peace and quiet, and you've got a bit more time to kind of just sit. And maybe get some reading them, so you got any books that you'd want to have with you or e books you'd want. Yeah, the books my Ipod go of the book. I'm reading now. The logic is is a big big bulky. Suit Roads. Right I history survivor WANNA. Defoe about human history in how we got to where we were on so of on the beach I'm kind of a reader. This book at my over two bucks. Over the same series now I thought about Harry Potter. Harry Potter. Is this so many of them? When westall what do I pick? I just get annoyed. It'd be like. Why did I bring this woman so I've gone with the first two hunger games. Okay, have you read? Have you read the to against not monsoon? Films will pretend I have yeah. I've seen the films. Yeah, yeah, it must be seen the films. Harry Potter the books are so much better because you have to imagine this world and the way the author describes this Oh good. My logic is I'm gonNA. Want something that's going to take me away. To another kind of weld, and if I have both of them. Is being bit by. The first book is very much setting the scene in. It's kind of what is the home games in the second one is really almost about the politics in the hunger games solid Kennedy interesting. Yeah I got a bit of bugs. Nice. So you've got the to hunger games in the book. That was the book that you're reading of the M- code again school the Silk Routes by Pizza. Franck, upon may reading now on a hunger games books again I could have picked the ones by just four given this scenario. I think probably. What about you? So I've tried to choose a broad selection of books, so the first book that I've chosen by an artist. Though I know, you could Charlie Makasi. And it's cooled the boy, the mole, the Fox and the Horse. Okay I'm thinking like a kid spoke, but I'm way off, I'm sure so it could be described as a kid spoke is a picture book and a kind of a storybook bought. The say is not something that is limited to kids, so kids would get a little out of it and enjoy reading it the message that the. The story towels is something that I think everyone could learn from. It's kind of a self help book in a way it's the is telling story first, and foremost it so say got wisdom in their. The can really encourage you kind of changed the way that you may be achieved different situations and stuff if you check out his instagram at Charlie Mukasey. That's Charlie Mac K. E. S. Y.. Then you'll be out a see some of the stuff that he's done in go from the. Look of this phone. Yeah, definitely recommend is get new book version where you can get a proper hardback version as well. It's available on Amazon or waterstone's stuff like. Oh. Your second book. The my second book. is. By Michael Gungor. Who is the one half of Ganga? The ban that I was talking about earlier. And he's written a book, could this? This subtitle is becoming free. And it's kind of his take on Buddhist philosophy. It's about how to be present in reality and be. Essentially kind of how to be here now. So. He is some stuff from teachers like Ramdas and. Richard Raw, but he will say. Eases kind of examples of his own life base is a really good book.

"Humor Reykdal inside frames very good. Yeah, so you'll take in the series of that I'm taking the second season about. Boston logic in to without sporting t much. There's a big cliffhanger and a big reveal at the end of the first season, and is essentially a big twist. And I feel like if I was constantly watching the first season ended on the big twist I'd get really frustrated, so I wanNA say after the first big twist where it kind of gets into. In the first season quite a few times because I've introduced people to the show up. To the second season's. Knowledge of. A. Basis the second season. The show tends to be one of the better ones. Yeah, so that that would be my first option. Then the second one is another TV show I says. Sherry is very close to my heart. And that is reproved. Drag race. I had a wild inkling that you might get a bit of reporting. Yes, Yup, so I've chosen seasons six. Have you seen any of drag race yourself Jay? But McGovern's on a lot in the background, so I've I've almost had a podcast listening experience. The ripples drag race so I'm pretty aware of what goes into. Yeah, well. Season six was the first season that I ever watched. and. It's still probably my favorite. It's got some really incredible drag Queens in. Some that I've now got onto. See Live and in person. And it's just absolutely incredible for those of you. That don't know what rubles drag races. It's essentially TV show hosted by rupel WHO's a drag. Queen is famous. Drag Queen in the world. And it's like America's next top model mixed with Britain's got talent in the most entertaining way, so they have to do challenges. They have to lip sync every single episode to bite for their place in the competition. There's all kinds of twists and turns. There's music challenges acting challenges. There's a game that they play called the snatch game where they do impressions of celebrities, but it is one of the most incredible TV shows on TV right now. And Yeah season six in particular features. My favorite drag Queen, whose Adore Delano and I've actually met Adore Delano and she called me a gorgeous motherfucker to my face. And it. I've not gone over that. Yeah, I'm still. Star struck by that. May Have Gotten quite drunk after the performance and try to help her in the bath while she was in full drag. There although we haven't. So that's that's my second choice. The good place got drag race and then my final option. Is it's actually a is at? You let me do this, but it was rather than just picking one film I've picked a series of films. because. I couldn't pick one film from that series. It's the marvel. Right Now. You cannot Hav the mobile infancy saw is. Is it free films? Mobley Twenty two foams. You're asking for twenty two films. I will go out on a limb on. My opinion on all of them. I think there will sheets. Although Marvel I. Don't like Superhero, action stuff. And it's been lovely having you all unlimited podcast. This is the last ever episode Joe is now dead to me. It's not my thing. I see what people like it. It's star wars is is just not my thing. Is it's often the same story began. To invest his bod-. Bottomless wins, good comes back. Heroin and someone dies obviously. I, mean makeup room. You could make that criticism avenue film. Jerry Yeah. That's mine. Particular pet FI. The action doesn't do much will be so paranoid I! Don't get much from these films, but no not having the whole marvel, saga you WanNa. Pick one film from there I'll give you that. It's just hard to. Interlink within each other? I think if I was to pick just one film you might have you might have seen. This might not have its superhero film, but it's a little bit. Different is not like a classic Superhero Film. Is A film a couple of years ago. It's called a logan. And, it follows the story of warring the former X man. As he essentially kind of Liz out the last days of his life, so it's in comic bookstore called old man Logan. But it's kind of a post apocalyptic world. It's very dark film. And it's it's incredible acting from Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman. I yeah. I'm thinking kind of joke of the news joke. They're very similar. Very similar the jokers that was actually another one of my. Choices for this question. Yeah, joking! Psychological Logan's a bit more violent. Can more like one, Jaguar.

You don't have a particularly mainstream interest music, but what well so using for me is a bit of an interesting thing, because for large chunk of my life, I listened to pretty much exclusively Christian music. And so I don't have a lot of stuff to drawn from my kind of teenage years, but there is one album in particular that I listened to a lot when I was a teenager because I used to play drums lot, and this was an album, the I actually went pretty much most of the album on the drums and was. In love with playing it I'm an umbrella by METALLICA could the black album or their self titled Album telecommutes Aleka Yes. It's an absolute. Incredible album came out in nineteen ninety-one.

We know that for sure. So Joe. Let's go for some entertainment then so. We said that we'd pick three films or TV shows, so I I think I for the sake of. Limiting it, we're not going to say all of the seasons of the TV show who say maybe one season of a show. Yeah, that's fair. Yeah, what would you have? View of a TV show will movie.

He's probably not gonNA WANNA reward that with needs to be honest. No could be quite entertaining. Along. A little bit. My. Best Film is going to be my favorite films time, which is pulled fiction okay. Nice logic again I've never got sick of this film. I think I've watched it. Going onto.

It's been great guys. Thanks for listening. We'll see next time out. That would be an excellent favorite film. My favorite I'm so sorry job I've never seen. It is a masterpiece. In my opinion. It's actually quite a popular favorite. Though I will say that I have heard lots of good things, he's one of these films. Though that's on my list of films to watch I've just never gotten around to watching. Yeah is on, Netflix is. is whether it's still no I. Don't know it probably is. Sweet! It is a very good film. Explain why not? When I explain you twos well because needs. Seven different purpose okay. My second film is GonNa be Shrek. Two Now Laugh. Shred sue is also masterpiece. Baron because I'm going to need some lighthearted comedy, but mostly adult comedy that frozen is. an again is a really remarkable film. You can wash that film as many times as you want. Yeah, you will. Still Laugh at Joe's is still funny. You kind of forget what happens y'all. Yeah, of course, yeah did. Did we watched Shrek two recently. I think we didn't have exposure yeah. I think it was Shrek one. We watched yes. I believe I kept bringing Shrek two. That's where it was. But Yeah I'm bringing Shrek to will be my one. Now. What's explain this woman? But it's a very good film about us. I'M GONNA? Take the Truman show. Okay, have you? Have you seen treatment? Show you know the premise if not I've heard of. It seen it thing, connor the premise. Going to spoil it on, but is quite old now so if you've watched it tough. Essentially Jim. Carey plays the main character. Something treatment remember. His name is first name. Actually remember but they basically make his life. In this kind of funds to see well a record everything, and it's like a TV show that everyone watches around the world at everyone in his life actors right okay on his him working this out during the film and it's really really well put together. Things read a good idea for film. Money executed it half way now my logic and not is if I'm going to be on a desert island would wreckage of as eating chicken Balti. Hof in the serene loaf want some Waikiki a bit. Yeah Yeah just to kind of give me some kind of perspective on the situation. Not she goes, you know. At least I'm the on his show where everything's fake? And that's my life awesome. Okay, so they're my free. Yeah, it'd be everything a crime. Yeah, from Pulp Fiction I've got a just footy light.

Eleanor shell struck wakes up and she is in heaven, essentially in the good place, and she realizes that she's not meant to be there that they've essentially gotten her mixed up with another Elena shelves drop, and it's her dealing with that and the situations that arise in that, and that's essentially the first episode's premise, and then the first season is. Dealing with the fallout of that, but. Is a show that. Has So many twists and turns every single episode ends on. A cliffhanger is one of the funniest shows on TV and it's also one of the most human shows on TV. It's one of those kind of TV shows where what minute you're laughing your head off next minute.

Yeah, yeah, basically so you picked the male that you're going to be having water stranded, picky snack, and then some entertainment, so maybe three books, three movies or TV shows three Po costing three albums. Good yes, sounds good to me amazing. So? Who you pick to get stranded on a desert island with I had a big thing about and as a couple of names that kept popping up. Yeah on I, eventually decided to one not is GONNA be the Mon- the one the only ricky jovis okay interesting. Do you went for like a celebrity? Even go for like a close family member or you go friend or anything like that was that? Put me into the whole there I spend time with those people before island. I'm going to want someone who has got a lot of energy and rekindle vase has got a ton of energy and stories and main thing is probably a mindset. Indefinite guess through. All he much crock and then. Leaves either way. It's going to be a tightening. Yeah, that's true. Yeah, he does also link into some of things by. Late so? Okay series! You're going to go full now. I feel silly because I chose someone. That's a friend of mine and. I thought long and hard because I didn't. Even think didn't even cross my mind to pick a celebrity, so I was thinking about different friends and to have this person door pick. This person been friends with this person for like a long time, but I might be closer with this person who I was racking my head for ages, but in the end decided to go for my friend Emma. Emma's one of my oldest friends and we've been through a lot together bachelor. We used to be married I. Think it brief. You told me this before from my memory I think you actually actually married. That makes sense well. It was a pretty serious ceremony. was officiated and guests, and all that we were about four or five at the time so. Maybe, it wasn't completely legal. Reception at school. And a few years ago, actually when we remembered about it on a nights out, we drew up the divorce contracts and signed it both, so we're not married anymore. But I thought it would be a nice little trip to to go with my my oldest friend, my ex wife be stuck on a desert island with Emma so. Yeah, Murphy listening. You by yeah, I don't think many many men or women would pick an ex partner I. really not well. It was you want to be with them. It was twenty two years ago Jerry. We've we've moved on where we're a lot more mature now and we're actually very good friends because I think the the marriage. If anything is strengthened our friendship, so we have picked two very different. People have yeah, and I'll tell you why. I picked a celebrity also to not upset all the people around me, so yes, celebrity, no one's GonNa get jealous. Why did you pick more money to pick? A light. This keeps it nice liberal. Yeah, it's very wise of you. Joe I now. I'm going to have some not too pleased friends. The will be annoyed that I picked over them probably. Tough, shit, so, Joe. We obviously you're going to be stranded with Ricky. What would you in Ricky be snacking on our snack and I thought of Ricky Life says I don't actually know GonNa Pass the Level Mckenna I'm a big foodie. Passan's quiet while told me more than outcasts admit, but my snack. I'M GONNA. Go for some serene loaf. Serene love just the plain one now. Hey me out. The be a few people are going what? Would you pay that. This is a food item. The eye of like my entire life and I've never got sick of it on almost on a daily basis, right? My logic is. I'm never gonNA. Get sick of it needs Konica pudding, but you can also have as Snot. Or for breakfast or whatever you want to his client, doubtable snack each chocolate, probably gonna now. You can get sick of it if you've got normal dairy milk than about you I would get sick of that weak week. Sure Yeah. Interesting. Do you, WanNa know what my snack is. Go on! What's your snack? My snack is. Exactly the same as yours is serene loaf. The banana one to be precise I've become. Yeah. Literally Big Fan, but my logic was get sick of it right I. Don't know what it is, but I've become obsessed with the little. You can get the five pack. Of the Leeann Literally yes, there went into Sainsbury's four five packs five. Yeah, I been readily picking up to free Loeser Week. Honestly I'm eating a Loft Serena. Yeah I. Don't know what it is is mad that we both pay, but yeah Serena. Well, this is all the people. Probably think eighteen year old me would be. We want to knock be out. Yeah, although eighteen year old me was actually in Sarim so. They got a high. Now I also have I. don't WanNa make this a serene podcast actually sponsor however. If three listening. gambled. The risk one Serena I do not like I. Don't know if you try to. Golden is one that comes in the green packaging. The apple womb. Not Tried it. I've been tempted CR like apples like apple pie. Maybe I'd like an apple life. Is An all good. It's not good. It's very sour. Apple based flavor is you can't make? His style needs to be like a sweet kind of think. Golden delicious kind of Apple. This is just like a with sour. Apple has no place in a serene for me, okay? That's really John People. Should probably be away? We not discussing now. That's really weird, not. Now. What would you main meal be then? Again this took me a while I with the same logic now I'm GonNa guy for a chicken. Balti okay complete with like Palau rise nominees, but it's very light. It's GONNA mention it okay, so he's got be a me and has got Pat Pat Isn. Nutritious stuff now the logic is. I've lot this feudal. My life and I continued to like it. Is Nutritious has got a bit of everything and I can also add a bit of spice in. What will ricky because Ricky's Vegan Ricky's just going to have to leave a hick. The veg out all star Ama on a desert island and No one can give you the Brownie points on a desert island. Wow, that fair enough. I'm sure that's the room. Is Vegan is for the Brownie. Points isn't yet, but he's not going to affect. Actually existed chicken still. Re Answer that quite side I'm sure you've as way mind you in sorry. Maybe.

How To Escape Your Children's Bedroom Without Waking Them
"Mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies a micro audio book about life in befuddle men. Just for you our story. This week is from Andrew. Not who you'll find known medium DOT COM and here is how to escape your children's bedroom without waking them. I hear at least one of your offspring is a light sleeper and also requires your presence by their bedside until they have entered rim. How wonderful light sleeping and dependency are signs of extreme intelligence? Probably of course. That doesn't make things any easier. You're trapped in their bedroom right now aren't you? You've tried to get out four times but your child somehow stop snoring and wakes up every time you move remain calm. I know you've been there for several hours but I have a few tips to extricate you from your current predicament. One stay low. Assuming you're lying on the floor. Don't try to stand up and walk out of the room. I don't care if your child is sawing more logs lumberjack. At a logging competition standing up beside her bid is a recipe for disaster instead. Flip over on your hands the knees and crawl a safe distance away from the bed. A safe distance might be anywhere from five feet to seven miles if necessary crawl all the way out of the room out the front door down the street to the convenience store in the corner and ask the store attendant directions to the nearest deserted island. Use Your Gogo gadget arm to hook the doorknob on your way out. Open it ever so slightly and Shimmy gap. This won't work but it's still fun because it makes you feel like a Middle Age Ninja. What does this sound like too much work? Well I have one question for you. Do you love your child or not to replace any squeaky floorboards and recarpet with an extra thick pad while it might seem like replacing your entire floor. After your child falls. Asleep is impossible. Just think of all the banging and loud cursing your fitfully. Sleeping child is only programmed to wake in response to you trying to desert her any other noise no matter how loud is actually fine so go ahead and rip up that dingy carpet and bolt down any loose boards. That keep foiling your escape. Make sure to use an extra thick pad to dampen the sound of your movements and the screams you emit as you lie. Face down. Utterly demoralized practically devouring the plush fiber like. It was your last meal as you wail plaintively desperate for relief. Don't worry about getting perfect laying new flooring in the dark is hard if it's not perfect though. It won't help your escape and if it is perfect. It also won't help because your footsteps no matter how muffled reverberate with the unmistakable sound of betrayal and abandonment three work on your core strength. Let's face it no matter how well these tips work. You're going to be standing up and immediately sitting down when your child's startles awake at least one hundred times per night while you're lying on the floor in the dark trying to answer in penetrable questions your child lobs it. You like disheartening. Confetti bombs develop your core strength by doing a hundred or so crunches what happens if a dragon breathes fire on you while you're on the toilet. Oh dear how are we going to answer that one? Try One hundred more crunches while you're down there. Contemplating core strength isn't very useful for escaping the bedroom but everyone likes toned ads right four. Remove your skeleton. A recent study found that the leading cause of waking sleeping children while exiting their bedroom was creaking bones. Do you have creaky bones? If so it's time to make a change kiss that pesky skeleton goodbye and sweet freedom. Hello sure removing your entire skeleton one bone at a time until you're nothing but a helpless meet sack might sound extreme but look do you want to cling to your precious bones or do you want your child to grow into an adult capable of trusting others and maintaining lasting relationships. You could only choose one and really things will be much better without a skeleton. You will no longer creek like a rusty windmill. Every time you move and you'll be blogging across the brand new carpet and out of that bedroom in no time
My Panic Attack
"Originally intended to record this episode back in March but that's when the corona virus hit the US in full force. So I put it on the back burner to host live. Qna's instead highlights. From which are uploaded as podcast episodes but once our front doors open again. The sudden stimuli of crowded stores and roadways might overwhelm us which brings me to this unlikely story. I want to share with you about a panic attack. That had earlier this year it turns out. There's a good explanation for why it occurred but it was quite unnerving when it was actually happening. What got me through? It is what can get us through. What's happening right? Now after? Six years of accumulating airline mileage points from flights and credit card charges. I finally had enough points to cover an absolutely free round trip. Flight and five week backpacking trip around the Philippines earlier this year and setting up a tenth on the beach or as I like to call it. A five billion star hotel made the trip in nature lovers paradise but quite a few shots. Vaccinations for things like typhoid and malaria were either necessary or strongly advised prior to boarding the flight. I am fortunate enough to not be on any medication. generally avoid even taking aspirin unless. I'm in severe pain but considering all the time I was about to spend sleeping outdoors in a third world country. I took the malaria pills for two weeks prior to departure as well as during the trip and for three weeks. Afterwards I didn't bother reading the possible side effects because not taking the pills wasn't an option but it didn't take long to notice that the pills made me sleepy for example so I just took them at night. I later discovered. They also cause vivid dreams and a slight fever which was no big deal. The whole point of the trip was to maximize time on quiet deserted islands for some peace and tranquility and to avoid major loud cities like Manila as much as possible. Since as far back as I can remember. I've been hyper sensitive to certain types of noise. The high pitch of CRT monitors beeping alarms the sound of someone snoring chewing the auditory assault of emergency sirens screaming children wind chimes and even certain. Birdsong would all drive me crazy. If it wasn't for two things one I can usually meditate and breathe deeply through the noise until it stops and I can return to the bliss of silence and to almost always have earplugs on me just in case. The sound is louder than my meditation consumer. Whether this miss a phony ah is a symptom of being somewhere on the spectrum or something else. Altogether avoiding noise isn't an option especially when dealing with major airports and public transportation. I can usually gear myself up prior to leaving the house in preparation for what's to come and wear noise cancelling headphones which more often than not keep my anxiety at bay anyway. The trip involved wonderfully warm ocean breeze on white sand beaches beautiful hikes and surprisingly freezing temperatures did not expect to experience in the Philippines but enjoyed immensely nonetheless on us. Sunrise hike to one of the highest peaks in the country clear blue skies and great food. Add into the mix one bad case of getting seasick on a boat between islands two cases of food poisoning which I actually think was from drinking the water. Not NECESSARILY FROM ANYTHING. I eight and you've got the complete experience which was still great in the grand scheme of things but at one point returning to the big loud and busy city of Manila after a couple of weeks of reading books in a Hammock on a quiet deserted beach. Hit Me really hard. The noise of construction traffic blaring. Tv's and radios car horns and the fast pace of everything and everyone around me shot my anxiety through the roof and sent me into the worst panic attack of ever had. I'm not going to play it down for you. I completely lost it. I truly believed it was the end of timber as we know him. That Buddhist boot camp would come to an end and that I would have to check myself into a mental hospital upon returning to the states. If I don't kill myself I that's how bad it was. Suicide was more inviting than another minute of noise from which I couldn't escape even with earplugs or noise cancelling headphones I truly wanted to die. It was my lowest point and I didn't even recognize myself. I mean this is me. We're talking about the guy who feels anger threatening to surface and starts contemplating what other feeling I'd rather choose but in this case this down to Earth Guy you've grown to know over. The years was no more. What got me through this sudden spiral of mental instability. As I was rocking back and forth was repeating to myself. This is temporary. This is temporary. This is temporary within an hour. I fell asleep probably from exhaustion. It's incredible how much energy the body uses to feel something anything so strongly. When I woke up the next day I was no longer on edge but still seriously questioning my mental health. Was this my own psychotic breakdown. His this what everyone was saying. Britney Spears went through in two thousand seven. It felt like years of meditation. Mindfulness and all the practice of had to remain calm in the midst of chaos. Meant nothing so I decided to do some research and discovered that severe panic attacks are actually a common side effect from the Malaria vaccine. I was taking and it all made sense on the one hand. I was relieved that it was merely a chemical reaction to the pills but has felt so real in the moment of panic. I couldn't access all those other parts of my brain that would have otherwise kicked in with logic and reasoning to talk me off the ledge but whether real or chemically induced the mantra. This is temporary. Helped me through it? All temporary can mean a minute or two an hour a week month year or lifetime. No matter how you look at anything. Everything is in constant flux. I guess what pleasantly surprised me. The most is how quickly I was willing to accept my mental breakdown. Prior to falling asleep I contacted a friend to recommend a therapist could see immediately upon returning to the states. I asked another friend whether the mental institutions depicted in movies resembled the real ones. He sees in his medical practice and then all reminded me of the near drowning incident that I described in my memoir and how I'm merely observed what was happening rather than reacting to it. I guess I wanted to share this story with you because perhaps all of the years of mindfulness practice didn't go out the window in the moment of panic and the gap between impulse response. I didn't react to what was happening. I reminded myself how temporary it all was. Mindfulness Meditation can really help us. Not In the moment of meditation but at some point down the road when we need it most a got me through the four hours of being seasick on the worst boat ride. You can imagine it. Got Me through the panic attack and it got me through the whirlwind of change to which I returned when I got back home for starters I found out that I had to move out from where I've been living for the past two and a half years but rather than react or dubbed the unexpected experience terrible or unfortunate. I found a new place to live. That is everything of ever dreamed of. And then this corona virus exploded and I can't think of anywhere on the world where I'd rather be quarantined right now
Dividend Cuts, Drone Deliveries, and Disney Plus
"Happy Monday. I'll believe you if you say it's Monday. They all do together as we have discussed before it's Day I know it's Day and I think it's not weekend. That's that's how I measure the days now not weekend day night. Three categories so Dan. Let's talk some. Gm less toxic dividends less toxic drones and as we wrap things up. Let's talk about something that you just wrote about Disney plus in whether or not it can save Disney stock but let's begin with the market now at the time of our taping here midday Monday all the major indices up slightly in this as part of a month Dan. This has just been an incredible month for the Dow. Snp THE NASDAQ ALL UP. Big having their best month in years so I want to start there as an investor. Are You thinking about this market? Because we have the market just chugging along this month and at the same time we have most states still under stay at home orders so I don't think about the market in the short term and right now. It's so emotional. So if there's a tiny little hint if like a village in Alabama says it's going to reopen a gym the market bounces up in and has a good day Which which I like that that there is sort of an appetite for optimism. Because we've been through such a miserable time that said I'd be looking at companies that are going to do well during this and after or companies that you really liked beforehand that you believe will bounce back when this is over. So I'm not looking to sort of ride out these trends or see what's going on or figuring out where the bottom is a. I think we've got some reckoning left to come but that's just a guess okay. So let's talk about some of those companies. Gm General Motors announcing its suspending. Its dividend and stock buybacks now shares. Gm down around forty percent for the year Dan. Gm has stopped producing cars. It has not yet announced a timeframe for when it will resume production. Gm is producing ventilators and personal protective equipment. What do you make them the GM news that it will suspend its dividends and stock buybacks? Yeah I think it's smart to preserve your cash when you're not selling any product. I understand I got some blowback on the live show from people saying Oh but you know we count on those dividends. I get it but you can't count on a dividend if a company goes bankrupt so I would rather GM stays in business longer puts itself in a situation where it has more cash long and a longer runway because eventually Americans will need cars this will end and people who were putting off a purchase will buy prices are really good so if you need a car it's actually a pretty good time to buy a car But I am in favor of taking being cautious as you can be right now. If you're a company okay. So along those lines I want to ask you about Disney. Disney has taken some heat for not suspending. Its dividend. What do you think yeah? I think it's a mistake. Look Disney's in a good position in terms of their available cash but they've also borrowed quite a bit of money. I mean. They borrowed the money for the Fox purchase. So to be paying cash. When you're not operating it seems like an artificial way to prop up your stock price. And I'm just not concerned about Disney's stock price in the short term. I'm I'm guessing. Executives are who often have bonuses tied to Stock Price? Okay well we're GONNA talk more Disney at a bit. But first I wanNA talk about a new development in the world of social distancing. Ups on Monday announcing that CVS and ups will start using drones. Yes drones next week to deliver prescription medication to the villages retirement community in Florida. Now Dan you are in Florida. The villages is the biggest retirement community in the country now. The drones will drop off prescriptions to a location near the community and a truck will finish the delivery. So this isn't door to door but this is going from. Cvs to somewhere near where people live. Yeah I mean. They've been testing this it. I think it's actually in Virginia in some rural town with the idea that you could bring prescriptions right to the door and you're gonNA see combinations of this and Robo trucks and other things delivering but the villages a unique place. These are generally stand alone homes or row houses And it's an entire community over one hundred thousand people that are all at least fifty five plus generally a lot older. So there's a lot of reason to minimize contact for these people. But I'm not entirely sure how drone to a truck to the door. Minimizes contact that. That seems to be the same amount of contact of driving the truck to the community and bringing it to the door. I it's a little strange for me but that said I think you're GONNA see Niche use of drones doing things like this drone isn't going to like bring you a Burrito and put it in your hand but it might leave your cvs box at your door or on your balcony or some other location if you live someplace. That isn't densely packed city. Okay so when you look over the next five to ten years in someone who studies the retail landscape when you look at the role of drones are you bullish or bearish. I know you say they're not gonNA be delivering burritos. But what's the role going forward? It's going to be niche. It's going to be filling. It's going to be a supplement in rural places where it doesn't make sense to send a truck it might sense and it's obviously state ver- to send drones but I don't think New York City or Alexandria. Virginia wants a sky filled with drones. That seems like a recipe for disaster. So they will be used. They will have a place but drones are much more likely to be used and are being used by say Walmart in a warehouse to take inventory. That is a much safer. It's it's it's not gonNa hit a you know a random person walking by. There's going to be a lot of commercial uses for drones but it isn't going to be to replace the Pizza Guy. Okay and no beer and wine up. Maybe some here in wine but probably I don't WanNA drone delivering a wine bottle. Have you ever had to why not if you're stairs? It's not fun now. That just seems fraught with issues. I mean I don't. I don't think you could do that. You know what daretodream dare to dream of a day and let's Talk Disney. We talked a little earlier but I want to talk about a few different developments here including something you just wrote about but first Disney today announcing big plans for May fourth now may fourth They will begin. Streaming Star Wars. The rise of skywalker. That'll be two months earlier than they planned. And then Disney also announcing that the final episode of the Clone Wars and the first episode of the mandatory and documentary will be available on May fourth so with all that in mind. You just wrote a piece this weekend. Dan Entitled Canned Disney Plus Save Disney stock. So can it. Yeah and. That's a very melodramatic headline I will. I will put out that. The goal of headlines are to get readership because I actually believe Disney. We'll be fine. It's other businesses. We'll be okay but what I want to really point out is. People are underplaying. Just how BIG DISNEY CAN BE A? When they last reported they went from ten million to fifty million subscribers that wasn't even based on corona virus growth that was based on adding a few new countries like eight or nine countries. Netflixing one hundred eighty one hundred somewhere in that ballpark. Disney plus is probably at seventy five million. Now wouldn't shock me. If in year there at one hundred twenty five one hundred fifty million and their cost structure is dramatically lower than Netflix. Netflix has to produce like two hundred series of quarter and throw them at a wall. They have to pay huge money to comedians. A Disney can pick and choose a few series based on its named intellectual property. You're GonNa Watch the new show starring one of the avengers. You're going to watch a new STAR WARS SHOW. You'RE GONNA watch when rise of skywalker is released. They don't have to spend the money. Net flicks does. This thing is going to be a cash cow quickly. Okay so I want to ask you more about that. And specifically the net flicks piece of that when you talk about their cost structure. How long can net flicks play that game? They're going to have to play that game. It lessens as they get into every market and they've localized content. They don't have the expense of having to record dialogue and new languages. They'll have some shows in each market. Eventually they're in a position where they can may be cut their contents bent in half but their content spend six to eight billion dollars a year whereas Disney pretty much everything Disney puts out on Disney. Plus that's original to the service is going to be a guaranteed hit when when you're watching a show in the Star Wars universe. It is not a big surprise that star wars fans. Watch it So Disney is really in a position where they can keep costs under control there also in a position where they can raise the price pretty easily six ninety nine a month. That's a great introductory price. But do you really think families are going to drop it if it goes to nine ninety nine over the course of the next three years Netflix too. I think can go up to about nineteen ninety nine and that will help some of their deficit but these are the two winners in the space and for Disney this is going to be its biggest segment. Maybe as soon as as well this year it'll probably be its biggest segment because others are closed but in a normal year this will be Disney's biggest segment if not in two thousand twenty one possibly almost certainly by two thousand twenty two and Dan Netflix. Still growing like a weed for the last quarter. They added almost sixteen million subscribers. So one hundred eighty three million subscribers now for Netflix When you look in as we're talking here we're talking about Disney on Netflix. Do you think there's room for both Disney plus and Net flicks to succeed over the next five to ten years or if this were wrestling is essentially a cage match. Were only one of them. Comes OUT ALIVE? No these two already one. It's a case of whether there's a market for HBO Max and Peacock and all the other services out there. Those are going to be harder cells but remember as people cut the cord and they're still eighty something million Americans who pay for cable. That's a hundred to two hundred dollars comes available to some of those people already have netflixing Disney plus so they'll probably dabble in ad one or two secondary services. But I think right now. This is a battle for the bronze medal. I if somebody can establish themselves in third place. That's a strong position to be in. I'm SORTA not counting. Who which is a Disney owned property because who was gonNA get bondholders by a lot of people with Disney plus and it's probably going to do reasonably well and be a driver for Disney. There's not a of original content being produced on on who so it's not that biggest spend But Yeah Disney a net flicks have have already lapped everybody. What about Amazon? Should we include them in the Disney Net flicks discussion? How many shows do you watch Amazon? you know we. I think we we watch a fair amount on Amazon prime. I think really I forget it exists Amazon is the Ebay of streaming services. How you know you forget. They exist and a lot of stuff. That's really hyped. When you actually dig into the research and find out how many people are watching it. It's like three hundred thousand people and they have some shows I've been interested in. I hear good things about the boys. I think that's what it's called and generally I've tried a few things on Amazon and nothing has struck. You're not paying for it. I don't precisely see where it's a particularly big value add. Would you cancel prime if they got Yeah No. I'm not cancelling prime. Yeah it makes no sense to cancel prime because right now. I don't know I'm delivering getting deliveries from. I was like four times a day. Like that's I think of something. I go in and put an Amazon Order. And now you have this fun. Amazon of will show up as opposed to previously when it would come the next day so I just don't think it's a relevant service. I don't precisely understand why they pay for it. Frankly okay okay so. I'm going to count you skeptical of. Do you have a Netflix? Or Disney plus recommendation for me. Well if you haven't watched the mandatory and you should absolutely watch the delorean oriented so right that I also on Netflix. This is a bit of a sleeper but I really liked glow It's based on the eighties women's wrestling group very very campy. The original show actually a little dark and vicious really well done. It's one of those things where you could say. Well I'm not a pro wrestling fan. It's not really about wrestling. It's about the relationships between the people And my wife didn't like it so that that's I would say women would like it but in case of my life that wasn't true and my wife really really really likes ozark and I have not been able to make myself watch it yet. Okay Good Ozark and glow there you go okay for our desert poll as we wrap up here over the next five years. You're on a desert island and you have to you have to buy one of these stocks and hold it. So let's go. Gm Disney net flex. Let's throw in. Cvs and UPS Disney without a shadow of a doubt. Cvs would be attractive if they didn't just by a health insurance company which absolutely is is something that makes me a little bit nervous but Disney has the number one theme park brand families are GonNa come back to Disney up. Whenever they put out the next Disney movies avengers Pixar or whatever it is people are going to go see those. I'm not worried about that company in the long term at all. Okay well there. You have it Dan Klein. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me
‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Is the Game We All Need Right Now
"Animal. Crossing New Horizons is the new animal crossing game for the switch. I think. Just the switch right Ben and It's incredible and it came out last Friday. So what is it? The twenty came on the twentieth and So been playing it for a week now and So have many members of our family who we've been visiting each other's islands has been a really nice social aspect of it Wow and also it's just like it's just sweet and Nice uplifting and also sometimes just like weird random so Aaron Do you know much anima- crossing in general. I don't know anything about it. Oh Yeah you asked me about it last week you were like. Why is everyone talking about this? I was just like why is one shitting their pants about you know. I didn't have an answer for why Hannah said. Besides the fact that it was well let me talk. It wasn't out yet but everybody was really excited about it but like I know that there hasn't been a new animal crossing game in a long time Ben but is there another reason because there are some new things in this. I haven't been a part of it before like the the whole like you. Start out undeserved island I think is pretty new to the Games. Like grafting three D. S. One thing but crafting is like brand new brand new and also Is Co op or not co up but like being able to visit each other places? Is that brand new? Not doing that in In versions as old as the second one which is for the DAS. But it's much much easier in this game and like much more streamlined. And I don't know that you have multiple people visit at once before and sort of do a lot of things you could. You can do multiplayer like it's a lot better in this game fisher cool. I'm just getting the link to the thing I'm GonNa recommend publicity so Basically animal crossing is like another kind of like just sort of relaxing game sort of similar to start do valley but not quite food classify social simulator game. Oh okay that makes sense It it moves in real time which I think is a really nice aspect to it. 'cause like one thing about Star Valley that I've heard people talk about is that They can feel stressed by the fact that there. There's more to do in a day than they feel like they can get done like. I don't often have that particular issue with it but I do sometimes like if you forget to pause when you go to the bathroom or something and you come back in the days gone now can be very frustrating. Like with with Animal crossing you can like you can like walk. Oh stop what you're doing and just kind of like look at a nice like island vista and eat some dinner and just kind of think about what you're GonNa do next and you're not like losing daylight and the days go until five. Am The next morning so you could potentially on a weekend. You could play late into the night and get a lot done in a day if you wanted to. But also it kind of makes you. It makes you kind of take things a little slower because you can't just like force the next day to start to make things happen so like a lot of things you know. There'll be a whole day or two when some new like building you're excited to visit is in construction or being upgraded and you just can't use it for that day and for that entire. Actual Calendar Day. You just can't use that service or like you know. See what you waited on. You just have to wait so it kind of teaches patients. It teaches you like resourcefulness. There's like a lot of ways that it rewards you for like basically doing chores around your island and making your island better like you can sell so the island is owned by a guy named Tom. Nook ben calls him he like sells you the all inclusive package to move to this deserted island with two other people and kind of like sketchily doesn't tell you how much it's GonNa cost you until you arrive and can leave and the airports not even open if you wanted to go home yet and like but then but then he very generously like let's you translate it into a different type of currency that's easier to earn at the beginning of the game but then like you know with all of these games. There's this kind of like recurring thing of like if you want. Greater House Which you do because you need storage and you want to decorate it and stuff. Then you have to go to Daddy nook and take out a loan and have him upgrade. Your House is the only way to do. Thank you for. Every Person Games about your daddy but he but at least in this game. He's a very like soft. Hearted capitalists like his loans zero injuries. No yeah there's no like scheduled payments You just you. Just pay him at your own pace. But you can't start up. You can't upgrade your house again until you've paid him. Obviously unlike the moment that you finish paying him the next time you talked to him he starts up. Selling you an excellent don't you? Yeah you know you wow congratulations. I knew how bad it still of a piece of shit. Don't you wish you had another room? So yeah that's that's kind of like the driving force is like you want to kind of make a house bigger everything he has these two. Little Helpers Name Timmy and Tommy who You Eventually. They'll they run like their own shop and you can go in by like random stuff there and other things really fun about the game. Is that the things that are in the shop. Change out every single day and they're just like completely random like you can find the weirdest like find toilets and there you can find like wall sconces. You can find like you like you. Just everybody has their own weird shit that they have and also the crafting thing. You can buy crafting recipes at the store or you can find them in messaging messages in bottles on the beach and like it's been I find that finding the random things is really exciting and also seeing what other random things people have gotten very biting. And there's so much customization opportunity in this game that you can really like you can bring your your your outside phantoms into it. You can make T. shirts of your favorite thing out out in the world like Ian made one Made a strong Badia flag tee shirt and he made a truck door dress and like he. He's loving that. He makes custom designs like constantly. We have you know you. Can you can put all your stuff all over the island wherever you want. You have neighbors. But they don't care so like so like Ian and I there's like a rock over by the beach and we we share in Ireland if you play on the switch yet you have to share the island that you're on in and I have separate houses but we live on the same island in the game and We we made one of the Little Rock's like a rock rock like a like a place where we can all jammed together and we put like a bunch of instruments out there and when people come over we go over there and just like play music together like that just like make the most random stuff everywhere and I just love it. I think it's great.
Ashley Blaker: Goy Friendly
"Talk about some. I'm pretty heavy issues. Israel Iran Patriot of Jews. So our next guest is a pretty big leap for us. Ashley Blaker is Jewish standup comedian. He is the first Orthodox Fox Jewish comedian to be given his own BBC. Show Ashley Blaker. GOYA's guide to Judaism which returned to the air in October. Two Thousand Nineteen. Now he's in New York for his latest off off Broadway. Show Ashley Blaker Goi friendly which premieres at the Soho playhouse. On February third and runs through February twenty third. While his previous off-broadway production strictly unorthodox was tailored for Jewish audiences. This one he says is not just for the Jews. It tells the story of how Ashley's close friendship with Muslim. Comedian Imron on. UCS completely changed his life with antisemitic incidents on the rise around the globe and even here in New York actually hopes to make the audience laugh but also understand stand a little bit more about their Jewish neighbors Ashley. Welcome to our studio. Thank you for having me so I have to ask you right out of the gate. anti-semitism is not funny. So how how do you address that topic with humor. Well the reality is I think he's anything can be funny. So I'll let you come to Louis showing judge whether I make. It isn't about antisemitism. I should say that there is actually a section is a band. Semitism thought. I think the more interesting is the fact that that when antisemitism is on the rise there are two ways of dealing with. This is a way of kind of hunkering down. Just going. We're we're now gonNA stick to ourselves and and try and protect ourselves and put up the security barriers and let's have lots of armed guards on the on the door in social ones bags and all of that stuff all you can kind of outreach. As it were and try and engage with the outside world and that's what my shows about about the latter it's about reaching out to the outside world and in a way this makes wants a comedy show. You know hopefully nonstop funny. Sound sound incredibly dry but Hopefully demystify Judaism a little bit. That's certainly one of the aims. Okay well I would say you could do both right. Do the security see the undercover getting having no security either. All kind of you know very good at that accused but I actually my playbill. I wrote a Performance note and for Bates Him. But I said something about how you know very good dividing ourselves as a as an in one of the things into I enjoy doing you mentioned my show strictly and also those I I love bringing choose together because we figured it kind of separating ourselves in so many different ways you know on the whole joke about the Jewish man who lands on a desert island and he builds two synagogues one ones that he'll go to one that he wouldn't ever be seen dead and that's like what we're like but I do think that there is it is an important time to actually reach out a little bit and we can. I think sometimes certainly not in any way suggesting that we. We are in any way a foot four and symptom of course but I sometimes think that actually being too insular. Isn't that helpful. Listen so now you are from the UK so well the Labor Party. I have to ask you about the Labor Party. I'm afraid But it's often regarded as the political liberal party of choice by many Jews in Great Britain. And I'm curious how you dealt with the last election and whether or not you felt politically homeless as I kept had reading about the Jewish community. There didn't myself but I'm sure other people did and I think that yes certainly in the post for many Jews the Labor faulty will have. I've been there home by just as much as the Conservative Party would be for many Liberal Democrat. We have quite a different political system. Should know to to to the Americans as many but yes I mean. It was incredible. What happened over the last few years and how symtas I'm just rose and seem to not be dealt with toll within the Labor Party in? Yeah it was a terrible thing we still really really been dealt with properly gone away. Yeah I know there were. There were several vile things said many vile things said ed by Labour politicians but then also Jeremy Corbyn himself was talking about the lack of irony that many British Jews seem to have. I don't know if you recall that particular. Yes it was Avia. Yeah it was a video I think from a while ago. Actually but he had yes he had said something. And there's a lot of these kind of allusions I think is because they. They caught clever then. They don't outright. This isn't the foul right then marking the street saying killed the Jews. It's a very allusive. Quite clever thing of of Hinson these particular weight alluding that Jews and Israel inflating the to and to you know the whole talking about antisemitism and anti Zionism also that that things that really came along with the Labor Party and I saw something videos of people saying no no we. We're not intimately to we like the right to choose. I think there's that thing of the good news and the bad news and I think that's a really good. Jews has ones March against Israel and kind of write letters to the Guardian saying that we support Sanctioned bedia smell that kind of thing uh-huh and then the ninety five percent of the badges. I mean that's clearly terrible things so it's been a really dark period and I didn't know it'll be interesting to see in the the next four five years. How things change? Have you tried to address it with humor. There over showed. I just did a toll in opened in in May with my friend Imran you mentioned draymond so imminent. He did a tour together called profit sharing actually breaking news in profit sharing seek clever title. And it's not address head on there are other people addressing this head on and the the truth is the way to look on twitter five minutes especially around the time the election to see that kind of Echo Chamber people. Don't WanNa hear they. You know you you tweet. Something about Labor Jeremy Corbyn and immediately comes back. This prepared list of twenty times. Jeremy Corbyn has both a motion ocean in parliament. That's been helpful to community Blah Blah Blah say. No one listens to each other anymore. People just spout the same thing. So I'm not sure engaging in that kind of way addressing head on is that helpful she because people just don't want to listen right. I'm sure it's the same here with trump and I'm sure there are people who are vehemently say one one thing you don't want to listen to the side. Yes that is. That is a problem that area. So I think that's something we've seen a lot particular around brexit and all these issues as we've had in the UK and the F. But so my show anyway. Mike show look comedy show. That's the the the main PARV. So I'll tell you briefly I mean essence shows. It's about yeah. Tell us about the show but then I also want to hear more about Enron and your friendship so the show about my friend she was Enron said. So that's the kind of I think in film in terms they call that the macguffin. He's kind of you know that you heard that term. I'm not familiar with that. So it's like using the original star wars. I think C. Three Po an onto d two of the macguffin that they're the ones like sent off into onto the desert and enter tattooing. They've got the messages item. Thank you the whole plot revolves from. Then there's no actually about them but it starts from them so in a way money's the macguffin hit because is a true story we're good friends we went untold together. And he's very interested custody my life he didn't know much about Judaism me belly of June. We spent many hours together in the call. He was always drawing because he he's Muslim. Couldn't in claiming been drinking and he's always asked me questions and I kind of wanted to teach him about Judaism. But where do you start. We've got six hundred thirteen commandments. It's too long to the call I didn't want to spend money on guests so I thought well I teach him about the Ten Commandments. And we started looking at the Ten Commandments. And I unrealized. They're not that practical you know he doesn't have an ox next all so there's no need to worry about not coveting it and I so I could. Maybe set myself challenge of coming up with my own ten commandments. That I could be a bit more practical. But they could actually explain what it's like to be an Orthodox Jew in two thousand twenty and in a way. It was my friendship with him. That made me reconsider my Judaism. Because she had I've been living as an Orthodox Jew for the best part of twenty years but it's only when an outside comes along install challenging us at you start having to think about it you start thinking about your love. So that's what the shows about and it's about me going through these ten commandments. My New Ten Commandments. antiquing this to him okay. So do you mind sharing a few of the talk commanded if you're the one of them is thou shalt develop obsessive compulsive disorder okay. She's an integral Paulsville so shoot as But we cover branch of Judy. Check that box right exactly. So we cover a lot of these areas we cover kosher food and living in a Jewish area. We talk about the curse of praying public and this covers a lot of ground really comes a lot of ground in the show and then And then the story I keep finished. The story has a continuation because of how Im- reacted and then what we went off did something together which I don't want to spoil because that's the narrative But it's a pretty funny chairman. I it really is. I'm super proud of it. So you say I did. This show could street Lennox. It was aimed at a Jewish audience. All Jews knock. He's also dogs. Reform Perform Conservative unaffiliated. But Still Jews and I think it's a really. I really wanted to do something. Everyone could cutting joy That would be in a language WIGGs. Everyone can understand but the is serious does not scrimp on the jokes atone. It's the funniest show of ever done this by miles miles because I've already but still called the serious stuff when we do discuss antisemitism and there are some real takeaways well foam it excellent zone. The show's name. Is Ashley. Blaker friendly it's at the Soho playhouse here in New York City from February third to twenty-third. Thank you for joining us. Thank
