They're going to see me doing my work, seeing me do everything I need to do. And you know, that's going to gain their trust and respect on the field. But then for me, it's, you know, really getting in the locker room and really understanding who they are as a person. You know, their tendency is what they like to do. And you know, try to grow their best relationship with them off the field. So that once we step on the field, we don't have anything to worry about.

That's like a couple wrestling singlets. Today, going three days away from this year's NFL Draft and we'll see where Tyler Linde among others call home and for one of our biggest storylines heading into this week. That's forty-niners GM talking about debo Samuel, the wide receivers request for a trade, just a little while ago. Listen to this from the forty-niners. Everyone's very curious about debo and what's going on there. You know, I'm not going to talk about that much today because I don't think that's productive. I don't want to speak on behalf of debo and his team. We pride ourselves for our communication with our players and this case is no different. You know, I'm confident we can find the solutions to work through whatever's going on. I just, like I said, I can't ever imagine moving on from D, but he's been such a great player for us. He means so much to this franchise. Got nothing but love for the guy. Wow, that brings us to our top stories brought to you by sleep number and let's welcome in, Adam Schefter. What do we need to know heading into draft week beginning with the latest on debo Samuel and the forty-niners? Well, Laura, everybody's waiting to see where deebo Samuel is going to be traded, but the fact of the matter is the niners don't want to move them. And it doesn't sound like they're inclined to move them, and you heard John lynch himself there, say that he can't imagine wanting to move on from debo. Boring some blockbuster offer from another team. It's hard to imagine a team putting together an attractive enough offer to get debo out of San Francisco, but let's see what the draft week holds. And then of course, we have multiple teams in the top half of the draft that have been making inquiries about moving back and the draft. And I think it's fair to say right now, Laura, that you have teams that are much more interested in moving back than they are moving up. There's a lot of talk about the Jaguars number one overall pick. Still a question there. It seems like it's going away right now from 870, but we'll see what Jacksonville does here on Thursday night. And then there are the quarterback storylines of this draft, primarily involving a couple of veterans. Jimmy Garoppolo, Baker Mayfield. And while the forty-niners sit today, they couldn't imagine moving on from deebo same. They also said that there's a scenario in which Jimmy Garoppolo could be in San Francisco this year. Again, I think they looked trade them, but does it mean they will trade on this week and Baker Mayfield has an $18.85 million guarantee tufted move that contract at a time where many teams have solved their quarterback needs. And a trade just in to NFL live just moments ago, the New England Patriots traded a 5th round draft pick to the Houston Texans for a 6th and 7th round pick, melancholy should have a lot of fun with those selections on Saturday. I tell you what, yeah, now all the mock drafts have to change. Come on. Thanks a lot, Bill Belichick. All right, thank you, Adam. As for another QB storyline, one of the quarterbacks who could hear his name called day one, Desmond Ritter, the Cincinnati QB, accounted for more touchdowns and won more games than any other quarterback over the last four seasons. He also holds the program record for touchdown passes with 87. Melon Todd's most recent mock had Ritter going 32nd overall to the Lions. We now get to welcome in Desmond Ritter two. NFL live and doesn't work so glad to have you with us on the show. Thank you so much for spending some time. Just as we're going through all of this, you're hearing all the storylines around the draft and all of the drama that is in the lead up to this week. How are you handling all of this is you prepare to be involved and your name called hopefully early on this draft. First of all, thank you for having me. And second, I'm just relaxing. Everything that I've done is kind of out of my control. At this point, so, you know, right now I'm just working out, you know, I played around a golf today and have a couple more round scheduled throughout this week. So I'm really just sitting back and relaxing, but also, you know, working as if, you know, we're going to play tomorrow. What's your handicap real fast? You good golfer. Great question. You know, I would like to stand with good golfer, but no, I'm not that good. But I would say about a 15, 16 show. You know, we're suddenly improving. We're working. Yeah, Danny could beat you, bro. Tough, no shot. Tough to be a good golfer and a good quarterback in the NFL. Desmond Dan Orlovsky are good to have you on. So I've said that I think that you have like the best quarterbacking tape of this draft. Getting to the line of scrimmage, getting it out of place, owning protection, but also knowing exactly where to go with the football, how to get it there when it's kind of needed versus what the defense and I saw that a lot against Notre-Dame. This is one of my favorite places. You see all these moving different parts defensively, right? So all of a sudden you see at the snap, the coverage really goes from like a two shell to a one high defense and they spin down the play cover three. So you're trying to work the curl flat hook defender and you've got that defender that you're trying to straighten up and just hold him inside, right? You're just trying to get that defender to sit on that kind of inside curl route while that outside defender is going to widen to the flex. You know you have that vacancy for that curl route to your left. I love that you kind of give this little kind of arm pump to just get that middle linebacker to hang in for the second. You know that that defender's getting wide and then with one hitch as that defensive ends getting to your left. You rip this curl out perfectly in time. That's an NFL type of operation. And then this seam route, which I think you'd throw best in the draft as this scene. I left how you catch this snap and just peaked to your left, right? You're just trying to make sure do I get those two safety splitting? Can I tack the middle of the field? And like, this is good coverage. You got a really lead this guy into the middle of the field with like touch trajectory, the type of throw, and if this was familiar to people at home, this kind of throw, it's because we saw Joe burrow for the Cincinnati Bengals and make this very similar throw last year in the playoffs against the Raiders. I remember breaking it down, catch the snap, peaked to my left, make sure that safety is getting wide and now even though there's great underneath coverage, I could throw the perfect throw as you bleed that guy into the middle of the field. And that kind of throw reminded me so much of what we saw from Joe burn the playoffs last year. So walk me through those two plays a little bit. Your mindset and exactly how you executed it. Yeah, so the first one for us, it was a man's own concept. We had a man concept up top and then a zone concept with the two core routes down to the bottom of the screen. So when we used the return motion and we just saw kind of the safety rotate down, thinking he was going over to three by one, he returned back. And just looking at the corners you knew, it was going to be zone. So I might have just, you know, held my eyes to the field for just a quick second. Got my eyes back side, and I thought my tight end, Lenny Taylor. I didn't know whether he was going to sit up right before that backer or kind of hook around over the ball. I'm going to kind of hesitate it a little bit, so I got off of a quick, that's where you saw the little ball fake. And then got to my car right outside. And then the next one, you know, it was like a vertical game for us for a verse out of two by two. And for us, you know, that reader is check free access first to the field, which was on the bottom of the screen. I saw that I didn't have that, so I just peeked there real quick. Got my eyes off it, came back, didn't see a safety over top, just kind of saw that back or running with them, and you know I like that matchup any day. I love those answers. I mean, you talk about having to think quickly. It's probably something NFL teams have loved sitting down and talking to you. I want to ask you about Alabama. You play Alabama. What is something that you are going to take from that game that you learned from that game that's going to help you be a better pro? Yeah, just the guys up front. Are going to be just that much better that much faster and quicker. You know, we play a lot of great competition in the a, she, but you know, it was nothing, obviously, to what Alabama brings to the table. And you see those Alabama defensive linemen, you know, get drafted every single year. And so just that style of play and just that game speed, you know, that's.

"At Michigan just being an outside astronaut. As I mentioned off the top, the Lions end up getting 8 in Hutchinson at number two, they're going to send a fruit basket to the Jaguars and say thank you very much for letting this happen.

Probably another tenth time. A little different this year. Yeah. It was a holy shit. We still ain't played our best yet. Nope. And I did it with a new group of teammates who were as committed as all group of teammates, and a new group of coaches that were as committed as old group of coaches. And they were different, but we tried to achieve the same thing. And what I realized was you can have different approaches and still accomplish amazing things. Finale of man in the arena Tom Brady is presented by Facebook portal and it drops tomorrow night at 11 eastern 8 Pacific do not mint. This is going to be fantastic. All right guys, it's officially draft week and somehow we still have a lot of burning questions for our draft analyst smoke hyper junior. There's a lot to get to Dan. You get to start us off here. Mel, these guys names have quieted a little bit. Kyle Hamilton, the safety out of Notre-Dame, Derek Stanley junior from LSU. Is it because of injury and if not for injury to these two players, where would they be actually drafted? I'll go to sting Lee first, and I talked to a GM who said, hey, for the best tape is in 2019, I can't take him to the top ten. Now he's getting a little momentum, but he's still off the top ten Kyle Hamilton is a positional value safety. Is it too high for a safety to be in the top three? Answer your question. I think singly would have been one of the first three or four players taken. And I think Kyle Hamilton would still have been in that say for the 11 range because of the safety spot being one that some teams don't value as high as others. All right melt, we know this is a great draft for wide receivers. We know that as Bill Tobin said, you would have liked to have been a GM or working a front office one day. If you were running a team, who's the one wide receiver in this draft that you'd love to have, who you think will be a star on the next level. Add a medical technology has come a long way and you think about the ACL and a national title game. I'm sticking with Jameson Williams. He's the best receiver in this draft, the one talent. Had he not gotten hurt, he would have been way up there in the top 5 ahead of Garrett Wilson ahead of Drake London. He's electrifying his versatile. He's a guy who loves to play the game. He's humble. He's a Wii and us guy, which I love about jamison Williams. I think I would bet on jamison to be a great player. And I think some teams now are moving them up the board to the point now. He could be a mid first rounder. Male last few years, we had obviously quarterbacks, and we knew these guys were first round talents, and we understood where they would be in this draft. We talk and Ritter, we talk, we talk in Malik Willis. We talking all of these guys that I don't know if they are legit superstars. Where would these guys be ranked or where would they be slotted if we had two or three legitimate one overalls in this draft? Yeah, you grade them on ability, Marcus, and they also look back at pasture. I go back to all the way into the late 70s early to mid 80s and look at the grades of those quarterbacks and you know you don't want to stack them up as high so you put a grade on them and how does that work in unison with the other positions? Like even a Justin Fields last year, say, well, if Justin Fields, you know, great compare. In the fields had haters that we do very vision as history as Brian billick always says about quarterback, just in the fields had a lot of guys, I was battling and didn't think he was going to be a really good quarterback. So to me, it's about grading them on ability against the class and also looking at pass quarterbacks so you got to put it in over the full perspective from that standpoint. Yeah, piggyback and stay too, some of these teams are looking ahead to next year and saying in 2023, you got a couple of great ones and Bryce young and CJ Stratton. It's my turn. All right, now we've heard the conversation about teams interested in trading back. Cheffy tweet about this today. Which teams does it make since based on needs to trade back considering that there are 8 teams with multiple first round picks this year? Yeah, I'll just look at it and say Carolina. If you have no second and third round pick and you have a quarterback situation like they do and you say, okay, we can move into the middle of the first if we like pick it and Willis and get one of those two, or if you like the left tackle, if you love Charles cross, you just take them at 6. Adam's going to be talking about Carolina a lot because of the quarterback situation there. I think 6 is way too high for Pickett and Willis. I'm going to go to a quarterback there. I'm going to go Willis. But if you move down and you like them both, you're pretty sure one of those two is going to be on the board in.

You're about to see so how does one man how does one prepare to be drafted and go through all of this and train in combine with an 11 month old? Yeah, you know, fortunate enough for me I have a wonderful mother and my child and girlfriend who does a heck of a job with her. All these times I looked at how the way she's to be home and be with our daughter and help her grow. So, you know, I got all that going on in all the football life going on. And then it's always great to come home and see my daughter. That's clear, right? Okay. And you've known her you met her a long time ago, right? You're like a high school sweetheart or something like that? Yeah, as a matter of freshman year of high school. A mutual friend on the football team, they live next to each other. And then we started dating junior year. I got to tell you, man, I mean, do you mention this in meetings? Do they ask you about it? Because you're obviously further along the line in terms of life and maturity than maybe some others that you will be compared and contrast with in the draft. Desmond? Yeah, I would say yes, some of them, some of them do some of them don't. Some of them will be who are you bringing with you if we were to draft you? And then other genomes just dive into kind of how we just did of how do you differentiate life has been a father in life as being a football player on a quarterback at ten. And then what are the similarities? What are the differences between the two? So just simple things like that. But yeah. Okay. Desmond Ritter here on the rich eyes and show a couple more minutes left with you, sir. So do you think Cincinnati gets a bad rep? In college football because what AAC and nobody really because it seemed like there were some people thought others deserved a shot against Alabama and not you. I'll give you the floor on that one. Desmond. Yeah. It's easy for the outside world to shave, but I bet you they wouldn't be saying that. It's also Cincinnati lined up against one of our teams. And they went out there and played them because it probably ended up in a since 90. But we're not so much more than that other than we're going to keep working to be the best no matter what anyone says about them. And I enjoyed meeting for a brief bit sauce this past weekend as well. It seems like there is very few people on your team the short of confidence. Desmond Ritter. Yeah. Yeah, no, he's the guy who came in from day one with all that confidence. We kind of looked at him crazy and then he earned it. To be able to go out and just be the way that he is. He had a great weekend and had himself had himself a good couple of days. I'll bite on that one, hold on a minute. I'll bite on that one. What do you mean looked at him a little crazy? What do you mean? He came in here as a 17 year old freshman. About 6 four probably around one 60. And he told him he was like, I'm sorry. Excuse me, what? And he was like, yeah, call me sauce. And we were all like, you know, our solar guys were like, no, we're not going to walk around here calling you soft. What's your real name again? He's like ahmaud. All right, we'll call you a lot. And then here, I think the name over has helped you. I was about to say so at what point did you say, all right, sauce? I hear you. When did that happen? No, it was after the first season more so after the UCF game at home, when he got his first career pick 6, I think it was. That helped us when we were like, okay, you might have something here. I love that. We are not calling you sauce, but it does take some serious gumption to introduce yourself as such to a whole bunch of people when you're 17, right? That's the confidence. Like we said ever since she's been, you know, a young kid young adult. And it's just going to keep containing the carrying with them. So before I let you go, what is your plan between now and drafting? What do we got? Back out here in California. Just kind of this kind of phone call is almost in the middle of the workout. We got the workout just over with. So working out can of physical training PT on physical therapy and just working outstanding shape getting ready for pro day. Okay. And when is your pro day again? What's that? March 24th. Okay, march 24th, back in Cincinnati. For your, I guess your Cincinnati, if you will finale, and then where are you going to be for draft? You're going to be, what do you got? Yeah, for draft order to be in Vegas. If I get the invite or back home and mobile, the whole bunch of friends or family. So I love it. Well, good for you. A great combine. You look great. You really did. Thank you. You did. And I guess the only thing that you didn't do stupendously well was three little tyke free throws that unfortunately short of them. Other than that. You look back and those might have been the three so called throws that you might want to get back. No, it's all right. You didn't expect it. And other than that, congratulations on everything. And let's continue to stay in touch. Thanks for the call. Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Thank you for having me. You got it. That's Desmond Ritter. Of Cincinnati bearcat football. You're getting a dad, you get in a leader, and you're getting a guy saying, I'm bringing first of all, I'm bringing your Super Bowl. I love that. Yeah, we're not calling you sauce. I enjoyed that story, too. Yeah, what's your name? Ahmaud. Yeah, it's ahmaud. Pick 6 against UCF. You stir it up. He got that name from a pop Warner coach. As we saw that, he saw that even at a young age, he had some extra sauce. Good nickname. We gotta get sauce in here, right? That's next. That's next up on the bearcat hit parade. That's a good nickname. Dude, that guy is talented. And Desmond Ritter had a terrific season. Terrific season and clearly is dedicated and as a professional mindset and he's a daddy. So I can worry about him. That night. And the girl dad did that too. That's right. That's me, which means he's wrapped. That's a wrap. He's taken the L. So a cage, you know, had his birthday party, right? Oh yeah, yeah. I saw that on Instagram. That is birthday. So I was having dinner with the Rachel benetto last night. She said she was there too. Yeah. That's great. I was not in charge of the guest list. Did not invite Rachel. Yeah. And it was for my friends who have little kids. Rich? Okay. And Cooper had a little game at the exact same time. Did he? I would know. You were into a lot of my kids birthday parties. Yeah. As a single guy. Be more than happy to show up. We know why. Just letting you know for his third. I mean, rich, you invited him over to just let you know from all types of other dinners when he was lonely. He painted that. I was on the pain on my list. Do you know why I was on the pain of mine? I have no idea. The biggest one because he doesn't want me to bring his child. Plastic wear. For his birthday. Yeah, but you wouldn't do that. Oh yeah, I'm rich wood. You wouldn't do plastic. Wouldn't I? You would do the good stuff. Oh, yeah. You did a good stuff. By the way, oh yeah. You would never hear that any of my things borrow to then return. No, I would just get him that. You would buy it. Just to see how. And that's a terrible gift. You think? Just a little tykes thing reminded me of that. Chili and kind of windy? Don't get comedy. That's a terrible gift. I get comedy. All right, just stand it. Okay. Just glad I saw it was beautiful day. Beautiful day. It was a nice day..

America's Mass Psychosis of FEAR with Psychiatrist Mark McDonald
"Mass formation psychosis is a neologism that was coined by doctor Robert Malone that has been largely repeated recently in the news, but what he's actually trying to say is mass delusional psychosis, which is a term that I actually began using almost two years ago in fall of 2020. It's also a pick up off of doctor Matthias Desmond's phrase, mass formation, which means mass psychosis, which describes the exact same thing, which is an entire society of people, all at the same time, essentially losing their rational faculties and following a fixed false belief, such as we're all going to die of the virus and we can survive only if we stay at home wear masks and stop working and stop going to school. That is the mass solutional psychosis of 2020 through to today. What are the where does it
"desmond" Discussed on Asian, Not Asian
"Another like systemic racism thing. Fundamentally, like benefiting from the benefiting from like half code in western things the same way that our faces do sometimes as well, not to take away from the high fashion brothers and sisters you or Asian being along. But there are some coated advantages. You know what I mean? It's the new item on the Olive Garden in bed here. And I think there's a bit of that. I think there's something wow. So it's kind of like you're kind of playing back America back to Americans, but it's like, oh wait, but right, but it's like, oh, it's different. It's kind of like an Asian, but I know this guy 'cause he's the thing I know. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah. Whereas like if I come in there and I gotta bring, I bring in my crazy jealous sausage, no one's gonna know what that is. You're trying to step into Hollywood with your bowl of bumble away and they're like, what is that? What is that even? What if I do that? I see a lot of garlic. And you're like, I don't think I don't want that. I want macaroon. I want macaroni and cheese, but you know what? With kangaroos. Just a little bit. Just a little bit. That's fucking dude. Damn. You're too weird. Too far. You're fucking smart guy, man. Jesus Christ. That's brilliant. That's really fucking brilliant. Holy shit. But all of these things that's like, all this, if they are true, why could I or so fucked? It's one of those things where it's like, again, this is a sample size of one Desmond. I don't have all the answers, but I've pushed my career. And I've made the choice. I've made the choice to be like, I'm going to push my identity towards those comfortable spaces if that makes any difference. Because I'm the kind of guy who works within the system, I'm going to make a living. You know what I mean? Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah. It is shilling. Fundamentally, like if you break it down, it's chilling. Right. A little bit. That doesn't feel right. But hopefully it puts us in a position to, you know, I want to open this up for like, oh, my everyone, you know? Let me ask you something. Have you had Asian American actors say something like that to your face? Or have you had this conversation with? Is this a thing that they're also noticing? Yeah, a 100%. Yeah, I think so. And it's something that we've talked about and something that like my group of Aussie boys, like we talk about it as well. And I think there is something to the level of after that makes it out here as well, just on get out of Australia you need to be quite good already to have made you any of the schools here or Visa wise to be able to get that special Visa you need to have something already. So we've already gone through one filtering process. You're really just get the best of our country over here. That's the other part of it to sort of be fair about that equation is like the statistically I think some of us in terms of the number of Asian Australians or Asian British people in Hollywood at any given time, like probably more of us are working in terms of the percentage of us. 'cause. Interesting. So many of us have already been through the initial steps and we're a little basically. Right. Right. You are. You're fucking seasoning our brain with knowledge. Jesus, holy shit, man. Oh, I didn't know I was gonna I didn't know I was gonna take the red pill today. I know this is a pill for that. Mike and I are coming out of that goose shit, you know? And decimal is the biggest robot..

"Penn, can he grow? Yeah, for sure, shopping. JB Fox, Jamie Foxx. Oh, dude, yeah, he has a band. He's got that little piece for a second. Dude, I think you're right. It's like, I think you might be. You might be right dude. Desmond. This is it. Fuck. Broke the academy. Broke the code, okay? You're fucking neo right here. Dude, that's a new hashtag. Oscar so, Harry. You know what's going to go to you? You know why it is? It's because like everyone likes just 'cause it's 'cause like all these clean cut guys, like everyone, everyone starts out clean cut. For the most part, everyone starts out clean cut. And then like when you wanna get edgy and actors, like, oh, I grew up here. Yeah. And I think that systemically puts Asians on the back foot. Like privileged, I'm lucky enough to be able to do this. I think you're right about that as well. You know what I mean? And the great actors, it's just that dumb ass audiences can't look at the look at an easy tale that they're doing good acting. Look at this. Yeah, yeah. It's kind of like when an actor tried to try to make himself uglier in order to be taken seriously. Look at me. I'm so, oh man, I'm so rough and I've got this. I've got this batch, patchy mustache. Leonardo DiCaprio is the king of that, you know? He plays the professor there. Yeah. Yeah, fuck. And you know what? 'cause what's that movie he doing? Where's the bear? The revenant? Yeah, you can't. You can't play that if you're like, who plays my love on who plays mclovin on. Yeah, yeah. That guy, he's a white guy, but he can't go facial hair. Yeah, I could not play the revenant. It just wouldn't work. It doesn't work. I got a CGI that on. They got us to do that. It's not going to work. Shit. Okay, well, that's problematic, but very true. This might be something that Mike and I think about a lot. And we're not hating. We're not hating it. We're just observing. And I don't even know if you've noticed this and if you haven't, maybe you have no answer to this, which is totally fine. But I feel that sometimes and I can say this because Mike and I are not like active actors, but I feel like Asian American actors and maybe comedians too are in direct competition with Australian slash British Asian actors. For roles and because this was laughing, but this is the evil laugh. He's like, that's ego laugh. And it feels that you guys always win because our theory is that when you have a white casting director, you know, they don't really understand Asian American things. Like, what is it that Asian Americans do again? What's your archetype? What is the thing? But if you have an accent, even if you look like me, if you even accent, they go, I know what British is. James Bond. I get it, you know? And in a weird way growing up in Australia or Britain makes you more American because I know what that is. Whereas necessarily know Mike because Mike is like a guy who eats a Garden Grove and they're like, I don't know whatever those words means. And he break dances. It was something that we noticed more before, but even I mean, first of all, I will definitely say I think British accents is like that's the key to success for everything. Because I just watched eternals. And everybody has a British accent in it, even though they're aliens. I'm like, or whatever they are. Like the big Asian guy, he's got a British accent? He doesn't have a British accent, but he's like, he's probably the only one. And you know what? Kumail had to do in order to compensate for not having a British accent. He had to get absolutely ripped, okay? That was what he had to do. He has to bench press 400 pounds. That's how we could overcome it. That's my conspiracy theory. Okay, that's my board. Take it out. I want to know. It's you, Ronny chieng, Alexander Hodge, Chris Peng, are the most active Asian male actors right now in America, and you guys are not from here. So hit me. Weirdly like me, Chris, Alex. We're all in Adele's film. That was a weird. See? See? The thing that could happen. A conspiracy whiteboard. I don't think you're wrong, and I have thought about this and I do have a theory that, again, it might be just me taking things far too seriously, but there is okay. You were right about the hair thing. I'm right about it. In America, a better at being American. Yes. Let me unpack that. A whole bunch of people. Here's the thing, right? You guys who grew up here in America, or like anyone who sort of grew up here in America, like you guys have forging your own path. You're forging a new version culturally of America. Everyone who grew up outside of America grew up with our experience with America is pop culture. We're growing up with all the stuff that everyone is seeing. Everyone's consuming. And sort of like subliminally, it gets in there, I think. And that process over with the producer and casting director impulse to whenever they say they're looking for a new thing whenever a producer or a casting director is like, we want to be looking for a new thing, what they actually mean is they look for the new thing on the Olive Garden menu. Yeah. What's the new breadstick dip? Exactly. So the fact that we come in with this subliminal bringing them a version of America that they're comfortable with that represents the goal is of what they used to and what they've seen for years and they've gone to film because they love it, right? I think they want that more than like where you guys are approaching your American culture. Because the real shit right here, we're on the mic and I are on a secret menu. We're not even on the floor. You didn't know that you could order a chow mein at Olive Garden. This is problematic as fuck, right? Like, this is just.

In many ways, the British or very complicit in this 300 years that your country is now recovering from. And you are an archbishop in the Anglican church. Of course, sense of humor. It's pretty amazing. It's amazing. And that church now globally is very divided over issues of sexuality and you have applied your experience in apartheid and a pretty provocative way in terms of where you come out on that. Well, you know, there are many in Africa and the Anglican church there. Views that I wouldn't hold myself over this. And I've often said, what a shame. I mean, well, really, what a disgrace. That the church of God in the face of so much suffering in the world. In the face of conflict of corruption of all of the awful things what is our obsession, our obsession is not ministering to a world that is aching. Our obsession is about sexual orientation. I'm sure that the lord of this church, looking down at us, must weep and see just what did I do wrong now? Of course, our church has been in many ways wonderful. I mean, you know, in its being comprehensive, it's something that we've boasted about the comprehensiveness of our church where we see we hold points of view that are often diametrically opposed.

"Being. Today we are revisiting my conversation with archbishop Desmond Tutu, who died in the final days of 2021. After he retired as the archbishop of Cape Town, he became a somewhat controversial figure in the global religious landscape, with his insistence that sexual orientation like racial equality is a basic human right. Now it's time. I'm a comeback you know words that you use like hope. And hope as opposed to optimism. I'm with you there that it's different. And goodness, which is in the title of this book you've written with your daughter, ma'am. As a journalist, it's very hard to make those words as interesting. And to make those words and the people you're pointing at and the situations that are attached to those words, to make them seem as telling. As substantial as violence and justice, evil, war. Have you thought about that? Well, yeah. But I have to say, you know, if you are devoid of hope, then roll over and disappear quietly. How trans men, hey, things can things will be better because God has intended for it to be so. You know, at no point will evil and injustice and oppression and all of the negative things have the last word. And yes, I mean, there's no question about the reality of evil of injustice of suffering, but you know at the center of this existence is a heart beating with love. You do. That you and I and all of us are incredible. I mean, we really are remarkable things that we are as a matter of fact made for goodness and it's not just a smart alert thing to see. It's just it's a fact. I mean, because all of us, even when we have degenerated, no, no. I mean, the wrong. Isn't what we should be. Is it what we should be doing? That fantastic. I mean, we really are. Amazing. You know, you told a story at a conference in 1990. About a man during the apartheid era in his village that had been demolished. People were being uprooted, and he prayed. Thank you, God for loving us. And you wrote, I've never understood that prayer. But I think people might look at you and the life you've lived, and also, you know, the bad things that continue to happen in South Africa and all in the rest of the world. And say, this guy says this is a moral universe, and there's this line that you've just echoed. You've written this so many times. God is in charge. And they might also say, how can he say that? I mean, tell me you've been saying God is in charge for a long time for decades. And so what do you mean when you say that? And has what that means to you? Has that changed? Has that evolved? Well, you must add that I have sometimes said to court, it would be it would be nice for you to make it slightly more obvious than it. But don't you believe this? I mean, when you encounter somebody good, just take the Dalai Lama. Right, your friend. Just take the delay. Now, this is someone who's been in exile for over 50 years. How should you really be? I mean, he's missing his beloved Tibet. He's missing his people. He's been made to live a life that he wouldn't really want to live. By right, I mean, when you meet him you expect somebody who is better who if you mention the Chinese will wish the west possible to happen to them, but you meet him. He's actually quite mischievous. I mean, he's fun, he's laughing. And people flock to him. And you know, I mean, he doesn't even speak English properly. They still walk through her. So I must tell you, I'm not. No, I'm not actually I'm not chillers. You can feel Central Park. So, you know, this is another question. I wanted to ask you have talked about how has your sense of reconciliation developed and you know, how has your sense of Christian truth? Evolved through experiences you've had coming out of apartheid with the Nobel Peace Prize. For example, your friendship with the Dalai Lama, this great Tibetan Buddhist leader. What's that? Do you really think that God would say that dilemma, you really are a great guy, man? Sure. What a shame you are not a Christian. I don't think so. I think I'm in court. It's just thrilled. Because no faith, not given the Christian faith, can ever encompass God. Or even.

"I'm Krista tippett and this is on being. Today we're remembering archbishop Desmond Tutu, who died in the last days of 2021. When I sat down with him in 2010, we explored his long view of the history he helped shape, and how his understanding of God and humanity unfolded through it. Desmond Tutu saw reconciliation as an ongoing national project, not something that was perfected and completed with the end of the truth and reconciliation process in 1998. I think a lot these days about colonialism, which, as you say, it's not just 50 years of apartheid. It's 300 years. And it's so ironic because also western support for South Africa had to do with South Africa as a bulwark against communism. And here I'm saying, we in the west have forgotten this. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, when things get rough and we also forget that we've been free for only about 16 years, 1994. And how long have you been free 300 years? Something. And I've sometimes said, well, you know, the history of Europe of the west gives me a great deal of hope. Yes. Yes. Yes. I mean, when you think that you've had two world wars, you've produced the Holocaust you produced ethnic cleansing, you've had dictatorships of it in Spain in Portugal in Greece. Yes. So I mean, I look now, I'm in how you have advanced. So there's hope for us. Yeah, I like that. I wonder also, you were, is it right, you were 63 years old when you voted for the first time? Well, is that like? How do you describe falling in love? People ask, then when we voted for the first time, it was an incredible experience. It was for you going to the box is really a political act. For us, it was a religious act. It was a spiritual experience. Because you know you walked, you walked into into the polling pools, one person. With all of the history of oppression and injustice and all the peggies that we were carrying and you walk and you make your Mark and you put the ballot into the box and you imagine the other side and you are a different person. You are transfigured. Now you actually count in your own country. Hey. I mean, it really was a cloud 9 experience. We were transformed from safest. Into persons. You know, one thing that I feel also runs throughout your writing is have freedom in terms of politics. I mean, this freedom to vote. Is absolutely something that you demanded and needed to demand. And yet you also knew people across the years who were free while they were imprisoned. And there's also the Specter now of people who are politically free, but not free and I don't know. Maybe the deepest Christian sense, for example. So I wonder if you'd reflect a little bit of what you've learned about the limits of politics. Well, you know, you've got prepositions, the preposition from. You are free from, and then you are free for. We have, we have got to be free from. Which turns out to be one of the slightly easier things to catch to do all of it. It took so long. Yes. Been freefall. I tell you it's tough. You know so what is the freedom for what that you now wish for for your people? I think many of us were involved. We often say, you know what? We didn't struggle in order just to change the complexion. Of those who sit in the union building, the union buildings are something like capital and so on. It wasn't to change the complexion. It was to change the quality of our community. Society. That we wanted to see a society that was a compassionate society. A caring society, a society where you might not necessarily be medley rich, but you knew that you counted. Yeah, I mean, we've got a number of things material political things. Not all of them. I mean, we have levels of poverty at home that are unacceptable. There's a crime, there's disease. We still do not, I think, have the kind of place where you see a really proud to be here. I really I know that even when I don't have a big bank balance. Account, I met her. What we have found is is that original sin actually doesn't know very much about racial discrimination. Originals in fact, all of us. I mean, when you see how so soon, I mean, people have become caught corrupt. And it leaves you feeling sad. And embarking. I'm Krista tippett and this is on being. Today we are revisiting my conversation with archbishop Desmond Tutu, who died in the final days of 2021. After he.

"Could ever achieved it for us. There is a lot of violence in South African society right now, and that violence is connected, as you say to these 300 years that couldn't possibly be resolved. By the commission. I mean, how do you think about what's happening now and that as part of this project? I think I'm in that we have very gravely underestimated. That a party inflicted on all of us. You know, the damage to our psyches, the Demi that has made I mean, it shocked me, I went to Nigeria when I was working for the work and sort of changes. And I was due to fly to Joss and so I go to Lagos airport and I get onto the plane and the two pilots in the cockpit are both black and. I just grew inches, you know, it was fantastic because we had been told that blacks can't do this. Right. And we have a smooth take off, and then we head to the mother and father of turbulence. I mean, we it was, it was quite awful. Scary. Do you know I can't believe it, but the first thought that came to my mind was, hey, there's no white men in that cockpit. Are those blacks going to be able to make it and when it was obviously made it? Here I am. But the thing is, I had not known that I was damaged to the extent of thinking that somehow actually what those white people were head kept drumming into us in South Africa about our being inferior powder being incapable it had large some way in me. Right. And so whilst we have had this process which was really important process, we wouldn't be where we are without it. We certainly are needing a great deal more, the most important being a recognition that we are damaged. We're wounded, wounded people. We accepted it to some extent. I mean, the commission realized that we were not a cut above fellow South Africans. We were about wounded healers. And you know, we used to make sure when we had these public hearings that the furniture that demonstrated it, we didn't see it on a platform higher than but we were deliberately said we sit on a level with the victims. Here's Desmond Tutu speaking at the national press club in 1999. The year after the TRC concluded its formal convening. We had this remarkable process of the truth and reconciliation commission. When people who had suffered grievously, whom.

"Was that momentous occasion, I think was it 1990 when there was the first conference in 30 years to bring together the Dutch reform leaders. These other churches. And there was this heartfelt apology. This is the 1990s, so things had started to break open, but there was still a lot of potential for danger, right? And you know, here's what you said. We have been on a kind of roller coaster ride. Reaching the heights of euphoria that a new dispensation was virtually here, and then touching the depths of despair because of the mindless violence and carnage that seemed to place the whole negotiation process in considerable deputy and just as we were recovering our breath, the God of surprises played his most extraordinary and incredible card. Did I see that? You said that. It's beautiful. Yes. Where is the court of surprises? I mean, I've sometimes said, God's sense of human is quite something you know, one illustration of craziness. They had dealt with somebody called payers no deal. He was in Africa. Who at one point said no apartheid can't be justified, scripturally. And for this, he was turfed out of his church. I mean, they expelled him because they said he was a traitor. And so he joined up with blacks and others opposing. When freedom came, there was a road in Johannesburg that had been named after TF Milan. In 1948, Milan became the first nationalist prime minister. And so they had this TF Milan driveway. In 19 94, 95, the name was changed to bears new deer. It would almost imagine them in heaven rolling in the air. I'm Krista tippett and this is on being. Today we are revisiting my delightful conversation with archbishop Desmond Tutu, who died in the last days of 2021. The truth and reconciliation commission, which he chaired met formally from 1995 to 1998. The TRC as it was known was conceived as apartheid unraveled in the early 1990s. Its basic premise was that any individual, whatever they had done was eligible for Amnesty if they would fully disclose and confess their crimes. The commission investigated human rights violations by both architects and opponents of apartheid. Victims were invited to tell their stories and witness confessions. Many families came to know for the first time when and how their loved ones had died. I wonder in the years that followed and in your experience of the truth and reconciliation commission what did you learn about why, as you.

"Beautiful thing. You got a star. Can we say a prayer first? Yes, please. Come here, spirit feel the hearts of thy faithful people. And kindling them the fire of their love, send forth a spirit and they shall be made and those shall renew the free of the earth. This hymn of the Jose language, God bless Africa, is the joint national anthem of modern South Africa. But when Desmond Tutu was born in 1931, it was an anthem of the anti government South African native National Congress. When the Dutch colonial Africa Connor nationalist party came to power in South Africa in 1948, it decreed white supremacy in perpetuity, codifying the policy of apartheid, which literally translates as a partner. Comprehensive separation and brutalization of the 80% majority population of non whites became the law of the land. Desmond Tutu grew up like other black children in a ghetto township marked by deprivation. But he stressed that his childhood was not devoid of joy. Children adapt, he played with his friends, but there were many moments which he traced as early stirrings of his sense of injustice. And I wondered when we spoke if Desmond Tutu's personal spirit of resistance might also have had roots in the cosa ancestry of his father. These were some of the earliest people to encounter and rebel against white intruders in the South African cape, some 300 years ago, the backdrop to all of the history Desmond Tutu lived through and shaped. You know, they recently did a genome sequencing and found that through my mother, I'm related to the sun people who are the earliest inhabitants of Southern Africa and probably some of the earliest human beings, but I think that the later resistance was because of various factors. You know, the people who influenced me, the schools that I went to, you know, at one time I worked for the world council of churches and we were based in London, I came from Africa. There were someone from Latin America, and he introduced me to Latin American liberation theology. And I came to visit for the first time in the United States. And here encountered black theology. So all of that was a very significant part of what helped you open my eyes. And you know, as I steeped myself in your story, I was so struck by the echoes of Dietrich bonhoeffer theologically, because your life in the RGB echoes and the parallels and there are very strong echoes of this German theologian who eventually became involved in a plot to assassinate Hitler and it seems like you also found yourself in a place and time where you were called to a very extreme understanding of as the bracelet says, what Jesus would do. As you're living your life and you have this and that inference at the time when it happens, you don't sit back and say now this is a major influence and it's going to turn me into this or that, but you see, I went to train for the preschool in a seminary that was run by a religious community. And one of my mentors was Trevor huddleston, who was just an incredible human being. He had come from England and was apprised in Sophia town, the black township to the west of Johannesburg. And when the apartheid government wanted to destroy a town he was amongst those who resisted like nobody's business and those are people who touched my life and mercifully, there isn't anything like the so called self made person. Right. You had spiritual companions. Yes. There are more than there are more than that. There are people who help to form me. And then discovering that the Bible could be such dynamite. I subsequently used to say if these white people had intended keeping us under, they shouldn't have given us the Bible because wow, I mean, it's almost as if it is written specifically just for your situation. I mean, the many parts of each remain. So actually, to the point for us can you recall one of those early discoveries of the Bible as dynamite some teaching that you suddenly saw as so relevant. It actually, the very first thing when you discovered that a party sought to mislead people into believing that what gave value to human beings was a biological irrelevance really skin color, ethnicity, and you saw how the descriptions say it is because we are created in the image of God. That each one of us is a chord carrier. That no matter what our physical circumstances may be, no matter how awful, no matter how deprived you could be, it doesn't take away from you this intrinsic worth. One soul just how significant it was, although I was a bishop by I was working now for the southern conservative churches and had a small parish in so way to most of my parishioners were domestic workers, not people who were very well educated, but I would say to them, you know, mama, when we ask who are you usually the white employer, most frequently, didn't use the person's name. They said the person's name was too difficult. And so most Africans were women would be called any and most black men really you a boy. And I would say to them, when they ask, who are you? Me? I record carrier. I'm good. Partner. I'm creative in the image of code. And you could see those dearly old ladies as they walked out of church on that occasion as if they were on cloud 9. They walked with their big slightly straighter. It was amazing. I think much of the world and this has to do with my profession of journalism as well. Yeah. Experienced the events in South Africa. Those decades leading up to the end of apartheid. Primarily as a political happenings. But there was a great religious drama at the heart of it, right? So on the one hand, the church, the Dutch reformed church, the primary church. In South Africa, sanctioned and sustained apartheid. To near the end. And also, as you say, there was this parallel drama going on of religion, theology, the Bible, becoming a great force of liberation. Well, one of the wonderful things was how infect we had this interfaith cooperation. Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, and now you know when you hear people speak about disparagingly about say Islam and you see the forgotten. I mean, that faith inspired people to create acts of courage and was that building that coalition, those friendships were they building in those latter decades of the 20th century. When we discovered, I mean, the thing you were fighting against was to be for divided churches for divided religious community. And each of the different faith communities realized some of the very significant central teachings about the worth of a human being about the unacceptability of injustice and oppression. Many times, actually, it was quite exhilarating. It was fun. Great. And then there.

"The reverend and the rockstar sounds like the start of a joke, not the description of a friendship. Improbable as it was, Desmond Tutu, who died on December 26th and I did have a friendship, and it's been one of the blessings of my life, not just to know him, but to have the chance to learn from him to take inspiration from him and to try to get a grip of the radical Christianity he preached, even at times against the orthodoxy of his own church. I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say, sorry. I mean, I would much rather go to the other place. I was in the room when he raged against his own government as represented by the African National Congress ANC. Promising he would be praying against them if they didn't change their ways. Profit versus profit. He could be pushy with his fans, too, IE, me. Do it. He once tried me, or I will personally stand in the way of you entering the gates of heaven. I'm an archbishop. I have influence. His understanding of scripture demanded he afflict the comfortable as surely as he comforted the afflicted. Tutus concerned for structures as well as individuals helps explain why his ministry focused not only on the consequences of injustice, but also its causes. There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they're falling in. You too played our first anti apartheid gig in 1979 in Dublin before we even had a record deal. We were teenagers who had grown up around a homegrown version of religious apartheid, applied by the UK to Catholics in Northern Ireland. Even then, Tutu was describing apartheid as less a structure than a metaphor for good and evil. A spiritual compliment to Nelson Mandela's more secular analysis, beginning in the 80s, both men had a serious impact on our band and ever since on my activism. One of the first things I had to learn from him was just to listen. This, it turns out, takes a serious resolve for someone like me, someone with a big mouth and a foot the size of it. I can not forget the look on the very reverence face. The first time we met him in 1998, when you too and other guests crowded into his office of the truth and reconciliation commission in Cape Town. The look wasn't indulgent or even dutiful, it was polite, verging on dismissive. If I could have spelled it out, tourists let us bow our heads, he said to the traveling circus, half of whom were not at all religious and let us ask the Holy Spirit into the room to bless the work going on in this building and to search all of our hearts for how we can do more to fulfill your kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.

That's what we built. And what. I realized over time especially as i spent more time with the research group is you can build a clinical group and you can build that capability not fast but relatively fast you know and you can Get some muscle doing that over and over again the fact was that genetic was founded in seventy six. So i got there. You know almost twenty years later. That research muscle he you know. You can't grow that overnight and boy were were they in. Are they good at research. I was just and i was so excited to spend time with scientists and to work on what i think you would call. Translational research That was those now inspiring at at that time mid-nineties you get there. Was there already a partnership in place with I deck on toxin. The original monoclonal antibody not that partnership came. I think in ninety five ninety six 'cause protection was approved in ninety seven in her substance came just a year later. I think ninety eight ninety eight. That's right your memories good so you had i mean to. in retrospect monumental advancements monoclonal. Antibodies for cancer. Which people by this point had been talking about for about twenty years Hadn't really manifested in the form of approved therapies and these needed to be taken across the finish line and brought all the way the market for patients. That's right so with dak with antonio lopez we worked on the the approval of retirement plan and then Which was hard but then her septum which was massively hard. Because we had to get the therapeutic and the diagnostic And then not long afterwards of aston. Yeah yeah the Jeff jeff antibody. That was a few years later. But now so by the time i came around and start writing genentech. It was later days and those were kind of the big three products at the company. The company was known for It's it's a exceptional work in cancer. but what what were some of the key things you learned in those As you kind of rose through the ranks and probably i. I'm sure he had to make some hard decisions about things that you know drugs that you were going to put on the shelf I mean it wasn't all you know. Rainbows and roses definitely. Not so the i you know. There's so many things. I learned that the most important thing goes back to that translation in the science. In just doing your best to let the science and the data drive your decision making in the cause you make and what you thought you could do I think that was really important. The other thing was just that the and this is one of the things. I actually ended up liking a lot about pharma and biotech is. There's you can take a lot of talented people. They each play a role and make something. Wonderful happened And we just ended up building a great team with with people who in so many roles on that team who knew what they were doing which mattered a lot and made a huge difference. That was that was a big big deal. The things that i think that We were were probably naive from a commercial standpoint on how we thought about commercialization. I think we got better over time. That that improved at the company. Because we just didn't have a giant tradition of this big oncology portfolio and then we as we grew. We had two problems as we grew. One is there. Were jobs where we couldn't find the right person for the job and art had this philosophy that if you couldn't find the right person for the driving should just leave it open. You shouldn't take a b minus and so we we really struggled because we're growing so fast to find the right people and then just management wise loss of people me included got promoted really fast and got these big jobs and trying to make sure that you could do all aspects of the job. Be a great manager. Give people room to grow. You know those are things. I think any company this growing fast struggles with that sounds like putting a lot of stress on your a players. You know the juggling a lot of it is. I look back at the time. I was There was a wonderful time. And i worked harder than humans should work. Yeah yeah but you eventually learn to become a manager and part of that. Job is delegating. hundred hundred. You learn about what it takes to be a good manager. I would say a combination of good role modeling and bad role modeling. Were really important. Art was my boss for most of the time. I was at genentech and there were things he did that. I thought really positive. I'll give you an example. He would often say you. Don't think you're capable of that. But i think you're capable that'll help you give it a try. You know so. He had this really nice way of encouraging Taking some some risks I also had people either. That i managed or or other colleagues who i would see the results of Bad management like people who felt threatened by great people instead of being proud of having great people things like that. And then i really liked working with. Hr i learned a lot from experienced expert colleagues in hr read a bit about trying to be a better manager so i wanted to be good at management. It seems like it made a big difference. And i worked hard to try and be good at it and when you're having a bad day or something goes sideways How do you handle it personally and You know how to you you know. Model that.
