The Great, A Rainy Day in New York and Least Expected Day

"This week on the class is your one stop shop for men's planning for. Rapping about white male privilege for MEA culpas this week you get to hear about the great. To, hear about. Search party. He. Get to hear about the least expensive. And you get to hear about Woody Allen's much delayed. Maybe. That way a rainy day in new. York. All these on the clapper's. Is Television show that has been renewed for a second series. I think it has ten episodes told me about speaking of names. It's bad woman. Oh, this is catherine the Great. WHO Will eventually become. Catherine. The great I presume she's not yet catherine the great that she's trying to get it to roll off people's tongues every now, and again she's deeply unpopular foreign princess. The Dr Peter who was also not the great. He's the unrelenting son of Peter, the great and it's hilarious first off, it is hilarious and it is. About a young woman, trying to find her feet in a hostile environment where she is the second most powerful, maybe third, most powerful person there. But unloved and disliked by almost everybody in the court, she's been imported from Austria to marry the Zayn providing with an air which he fails to do throughout the series she symbols retinue of misfits and Rep scallions to help her become the empress of Russia. And this isn't very well explained I think. But but one minute cheese a knife under new shocked at the accesses and the repeal of the Russian court and the next thing she's Russia she feels Russia she wants to be Russia. She sees husband doing terrible joke which is and decides that he must be. Dealt with assassinated and assembles a crew to do it and much hijinks ensue. It is so funny I can't believe it actually funny. These I would say I had tears pouring out of my eyes with laughter but there is a lot of brutality cruelty and laughs in this show. So it's created by tiny McNamara who these struggling. Lives in the. Scotsman. Young he of course, wrote the favorite the Yugoslav anthem was from with your favorite. Yes. The name. Kelly. Kelly. Kelly Pauley all equally as COA, Olivia? Coleman. But. Others others as well. I was close the microphone also excellent in that film including Nicholas Holt who has his brief moment where he? Pushes her into a ditch of. Start and he plays that are Peter the Mediocre in this and he is just hilarious. He's great mix of malevolent and charm and stupidity. A very funny. Very funny role that he's got himself. I've always liked what Jean things and often he's in things for a brief moment and the other things like a single man he's at the very very end briefly and offer some happiness redemption to poor Colin firth in that film he's great and everyone's greatness. So Nicholas halted in the favorite plays for show. What is the Palminteri and I think? Holly Jolly and. and. So he's he is in this society, right? Yeah, and he's on the screen for. At least half the time you know and and he Is. Happy to see him they have you seen the true history of the Kelly Gang or sorry true history the. I watched the trial I thought. We Jessica so I think the correct answer to that is no just. I've seen the trailer. Shoes be one of those people Andrew. Judgments on the world without having gauging with then Soviet welcome to twitter. Talk with. Logged to twitter today for the first time. I keep forgetting that I'm on twitter and then off that's right and I've lost my password I'll have to start over again and I actually found my password or logged onto twitter I didn't derive any great benefit from it, but I logged on and then logged off a couple of minutes later. But was interesting sir. Eats an infant story of lethargy and on way in look down prices were even social media is failing to engage I can I decide? I would be an infinitely better place if more people were afflicted with this viral on we that your experience today and didn't post on twitter. Road with infinitely bad. Such an interesting villa I'm gonNA say a hypocrite. I'm. Getting, lambasted for not engaging with the world by watching not the trailer but a true, and then on the other hand I'm being slapped on the back and being held up as an example to all for not engaging we. See. My point is that. Twitter. Is Full of people who cast judgment on things. Stories where I've only read the headline, right? You know. Whatever it might be you know some some comedian gets slated for something. They allegedly said bother to actually engage with whether they've actually said people are always saying I've heard that film is terrible this this thing is bad whatever it might be the haven't actually seen it. They're happy to parrot judgments at somebody else's made whether their judgments are accurate or otherwise they don't they don't feel the need to actually engage with. The thing itself, van engage with the judgment somebody else's made by ramp that judgment up they echo it. They they parented and suddenly that judgment becomes it becomes like globally accepted even though ninety percent ninety, nine percent of the people who are sharing and and passing on this judgment and passing it as if it were their own have not actually seen thing or read the thing or heard the single whatever it might be. And therefore. I think. Just. Not Doing it. Is Better. To Return. Yes where we saw here, what are we consider that sucks. The. Old. WHO Halt? Nicholas. Halt. To return to Nicholas. Hold. True history of the Kelly gang et CETERA. He's in it as the evil fitzpatrick and he's very good in it. He's very well in Betty's Manetti. Now disappointed by everything. I've seen him in, which is why I don't want to see that film and to return to the. Great. Elle fanning. Your Price Kassy's in it she. Probably mentioned that would probably mentioned that you're you're usually the one who made these things are happy to leave it to you. The thing is Andrew a lot love how this is happening just like as if we'd scripted it. We have we have like pine stiflingly scripted l. finding is also the star of woody, Allen's movie. A rainy, day, in New York yeah, Woody Allen. And now I've heard of. Elf any. The whole the whole first season it is amazing and I did say second season has been what have you say signed off on? Commission Commission. I think that's the word. And just say one more thing. Sorry about this I don't normally have so much to say. When this was a play at Sydney theatre company quite quite a while ago quite a while before the. The fuel the favorite came did you know that? And what I heard about this I thought. I. I felt a little a little sorry for turning McNamara. Wouldn't it be great if he was able to capitalize on that Oscar success with a great big film with a huge budget, and of course, these times that we live in. Now it's actually a fag capitalization to have a rollicking TV series that everyone can watch on whatever it is stand on stain, and so it's actually been worked out pretty well for him day got want. So anyway onto Elle fanning and Woody Allen Woody Allen yes. Arranged I in New York. This is a film that he shot in two, thousand, seventeen and. It was meant to be the first film in a four picture deal with Amazon, and then when the the sort of. The great burst of Discussion out of out of Metro and times op and the focus on. Claims of famous men who are guilty or otherwise at least accused let's say accused of sexual improprieties assault or. Ripe or whatever it might have been. The spotlight turned again on the accusations made in nineteen, ninety two. About Woody Allen having allegedly. Sexually abused Dylan Farrow who was in seven years old. I don't want to go through the tawdry detail of that case any in any great detail other than say he he was never charged. The. There have been conflicting sort of assessments of whether. There was any kind of bison which that claim could be made whether it was a product of. Mia. Farrow's sort of anger over the discovery of his affair with Suny Previn and Yada Yada Yada. So it's a messy messy thing. I have no idea what went on I mean how can I can any of us really know what went on? Of into sites had. A devastating impact on Dylan Farrow and. Would appear to have less of an impact on Woody Allen in terms of his creek is still gotta make films. This film had had wrapped shooting in New York and. It was edited throughout two thousand and one thousand nine hundred is finalized by light two, thousand eighteen. and. Basically from I think it's about October through to January of two, thousand and nineteen. Various cast members in this film bicycling designed it. I started. Talking. About how had they had? I realized that Now have the opportunity to think more deeply about it. They regret their involvement in the film and they were donating their fee to. TIMES, up, legal, campaign. To this show. NANNA SOM. Years Later Months later, this is what I mean is how many years oh? Yes the accuracy five years. Yeah. So it's not like it's been unknown a day. So anybody an Ronan Farrow as his Dylan Farrow's brother has written about this. I would say and he had indeed written about it in two thousand sixteen. So well, person pertinent fan here is that although the case was twenty, five years old Dylan Farrow had given an interview I think in two thousand, fourteen brought it up again and she'd written a piece I think she an opinion piece for. Remember. The publication of tomato may have been for Vanity Fair I can't quite remember then Dylan Farrow who saw Ronan Farrow who was actually nine sexual when he was an he's A sensibly the biological child of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow over there was some suggestion that it so Frank Sinatra me and Farah be that as it might. He has basically been the chief prosecutor of of the case against Woody Allen. In a variety of forms and so he had he had been out there in two thousand sixteen. So you even the Timothy Shell who plays the lead in this film is in his early to mid twenty s l fanning twenty two now. So she would have been twenty at the time she was making this film twenty, nine, hundred twenty and without a young enough not to have heard about it this time round but they had they certainly had ample opportunity to be aware of it because it was in the public. Arena, again, from two, thousand fourteen and certainly from two, thousand sixteen, the before the film was shot. So the idea that they only. Only now, a hearing about this is slightly ludicrous. Amazon dumped woody Allen's four picture deal impractical terms. It was unrelievable by couldn't Yak had the film. So heathen sued them. For. Sixty eight million dollars which was supposed to. In us which supposedly the minimum that he would have earned under the terms of their agreement. Wow Nice work. You can get it right. I have to say that the days of Allen's films being amassed see for the film buff Y'all longer and I don't think that this is going to change that perception regardless of what you think about woody. Allen as a you know whether whether you sit on the he's being unfairly maligned or he's he's getting away with it side of that fence. And I said absolutely totally on the fence as I've indicated earlier and I I. It's very painful. This is the pilot say that by now you must be so comfortable with the. Backside let's have been set. On an issue. Because I, I have an open mind Andrew Lee to judgmental things. WHO The films are K. K., but it feels like a total retail feels like other amendments for I was watching Shalam I basically channeling this young idealized version of Woody Allen reminders many have before he absolutely really reminded me of Kenneth, Branagh's performance and celebrity. There were I. think that Elle Fanning has basically been cast as as a sort of a young version of a younger Diane Keaton. Okay. I, it sort of it was almost embarrassing at times I thought watching her perform menial is a thoroughly decent actors in in many things but I just felt senior in the ten episodes. So I can't. I just felt that she was being casserole the it felt really really forced felt really like almost periodic and not in a good way. And the subject matter it's you know. It's just it's just it's the very lighter end of Woody Allen's of it's not terrible but. You know. It's It's okay. It's okay. It's I. Really. I. Think. If you've never seen nobody allen film well as you can watch us and kind of fun and if you have sleep woody Allen Film, YOU'RE GONNA. Go God. That's that's a lot of others but not as good I would say if you've never seen woody Allen Film and you're never going to. And that's fine and that is completely fine. If you somebody he sees films and you've never seen one great good on you you know and you never have never seen any of those terminator films of Never Seen Dancing of never seen. This heaps of really mainstream films that people at work will make some reference to and I'll just not know what they're talking about and they'll be amazed and think I'm joking no. and. You can get by I've not seen the terminator ones in this other franchises like that. I've just never seen and that's fine. I'm still able to have some semblance of alive. Boda. I'm going to flag something that he's about young people in New York wandering around I'm asleep, which is pretty much what happens in a rainy day in New York. That is worth thing. This is a serious search party. Watched a couple of minutes of that a couple of minutes. I don't know I just thought. I'd these kinds of people like I was wedding in acute to get something from a shop you know and I had to listen to these people in front of me I would just. COMBUST. To weigh up my need to get whatever it is maybe a cup of coffee. Cups of coffee is a rule from shepherd. Let's say it's a cup of coffee. I'd have to say. It's not worth it. It's not worth it. I'll have to have a cup of coffee somewhere else some other time cannot stand listening to these people talk. I. I, hear you I. Hear You, i. totally hear you I really do. In terms of what I was renting on twitter before and social media. This is this is a parody of the. The performance of aspects of social media and Of. Being. Out There in the Wilderness, a the the look at me impulse, it really is pretty great on that. It's basically. Alliott. Shawkat. Who People by no from arrested development from the Sophie Hides Film. Animals. which I think she's great. Yeah. She's somebody that I'd be happy to watch something that was what chewable for an adult I'm an adult so. Well the jury's out on that but. She's she plays a character called Dory, safe who his Mid To late twenty S. Really drifting, she's got a crappy job working as an assistant to a wealthy woman. Plight by Christine Tyler who has been stiller's wife and in real life. who was she was Masher Brady in the Brady bunch movie. and. She's She's kind of drifting got nothing really that gives a focus or purpose in life, and she's like us unlike us and on our way she's on her way to Brunch and Mrs and the first step at the very first. She's on her way to lunch and Brench. She said ranch soy ranch, and she sees a missing person sign on a telegraph pole and she recognizes ago she was a college with and so become she told her might she's GonNa meet a boyfriend drew. A couple of friends, Elliott who's kind of like a trust fund kid who may be sort of event planning? It's a bit. Exactly, what he does except that, he seems to live a very, very calamitous life. Really, annoying very seldom Porsche uses aspiring actress and Porsche Elliott live together and and you know fabulousness is really the focus of their existence and drew a Dory live together and I would say probably misery is A. Very unhappily coupled and. She told them she goes. This jury member, this girl Chantale from college and. You know Elliott and push going issues pretty horrible I didn't like. Blah a Druze going. I have no recollection although whatsoever and then she eventually all start they're all like bitching about her what a terrible person she was and then she goes. Anyway. She's missing. Elliott Porsche hop onto the porch. She starts tearing up Elliott on social media going Oh my God you guys. Have against what's happened is terrible and very dear friend and it's it's just as kind of owning this performance. Give Great. It's really not flying. It's very funny. It's very, very funny. I. Think I think the pilot episode in particular is hilarious because it's very much like it's a social satire at that point and it remains at over the course of three seasons. Three three seasons. Yeah, and eight. The narrative is about they go sir, they form a search party, Dorey basically forms of interest search party because Dorey becomes obsessed with them because it gives a life. Becomes obsessed with the search rather for chantal because it gives life meaning the others get roped into it and it just goes the whole thing completely off the rails and it's funny but it's also kind of compelling as this sort of. Four investigators kind of thing Nancy drew kind of mystery. Season that's say season to something goes horribly wrong and the it it's about attempting to. Cover that up and then season three it's the ramifications. So I actually becomes kind of. Dory becomes a kind of Rascal Nicole character. Jones. In enmeshed in. A thing that's gone horribly wrong and she issued grapples with. Listeners but to know the. Punishment. I wait to the market across the road from. Hartman. Looked up said, this is where he works. Don't such a plot, but I reckon it's a role looking good ride. It's it's funny but it's it's also very serious. It's it's it's got this kind of good. You know. Very very repulsive plot. But it's also very much a social satire. Reminds me a little bit of clueless from the the update of Emma back in. Ninety, five neither field but I think I saw. Anyway it's it's what with checking. Do you guys remember that girl chantal with their bottom oh? Yeah. Oh, she sucked. She's gone missing wedding immune gone. She's like a missing person where is she? That's the question. Why Porsche? No one at the table knows. Show speaking of many episodes, they're. What's to beat of it? I believe there are ten seasons. So the first season has seven. Seventy four episodes my God. What is this? Lives, it's about a bear what called Greasy. Grizzly, lemmings Greasy and the lemmings and it is shot in the. Animated, show. Canada. French imagined. In their English signs within its extensively about a bear and his nemeses, the lemmings and it's like Tom and Jerry crossed with roadrunner and Wylie Coyote. It's full of violence and and speed and running and fifth and they're. Each. Is trying to harass the other and there's explosions. It's and it's it can play in any country because there's no language there's just. Sounds and On. Its children obviously, and it's hilarious. If you remember how how have frustrating roadrunner was because obviously we. Use the phrase I'm not going to use the phrase cal can use it but. You never catches the roadrunner while coyote ever catches the roadrunner. Okay. And if you love the MGM Tom and Jerry's violent ones that I think you're going to enjoy greasy and the lemming smart. Okay. Tom and great and lemmings are always breaking into greasy. He leaves like a as ranger in the forest into his house and stealing his snacks and and he's Sofa. He'll just want lie on the. Sofa because he's a beer that's book bears like to do. Apparently it's just stupid and great there are you save according to DB? There are two episodes. And you said, how many ten seasons? I said seventy four. Seventy four episodes. In each of these tendencies, I'm I I was looking down the list. Of An s Wollen or Esi one. On the side of the screen, it's on Netflix. And I'm looking down the screen now and I mean season one year I'm at seventy four other not long five or ten minutes seven minutes apparently Acai. Just. I'm not recommending it. I'm telling you saying that you're merely its existence I'm happy to see something. that the old traditions haven't died out shall we say? Yeah. Very. K. Animals bashing each other up in cartoon for anyway. Something I wanted to talk about very quickly. is to front, which is an on it should be on right now. Everybody knows that. Well, it's been postponed to the end of August, but really. Is that GonNa Happen? Nobody knows with with the whole covid nineteen situation. A lot of teams have been facing ruin because they have no racing by have no income the strain team run by Jerry Ryan has not here's guaranteed another two years of existence for Mitchelson Scott Okay. Now, one of the great writers Mitchell Scott the south. African Darryl impede who is the only South African to win the Yellow Jersey though some say it was gifted to him by Simon Gerrans. Chris firm who has left any US which used to be sky for the Israel Cycling Startup Nation team has been whispering in his ear and there is a concern amongst lovers of Mitchelson Scott Team that Darryl van Impe may leave to become the left handed of Chris Room Psychosis. Some may say probably doesn't have another win in him. Of the Tour de France. Richie. Porte. who used to be Eius when it was sky He's out of contract with tricks, Sigfredo the end of the year, and he may return, which would be very sad for people who thought that he had wasted he's best years as a lift timid to a Bradley weakened, and Christopher firm both stint British riders winners of the tour sky now in the US swept up the thing for the last few years so. Even though the racing isn't on the intrigue continues the talks backwards and forwards across the table continue. Now. I've been watching a show about racing cycling cal. On netflix's okay it's compelling and what's why it's compelling for a couple of reasons because it's not old, it was all shot last year. So everything is still very fresh in contemporary and it's about the team movie star the Spanish tain. It's called the least expected it six episodes. It's very brisk and what's very interesting about it is. The doesn't seem to be any speaking the company line every single person who was interviewed surrounding the Tour de France and the tour of Spain speaking completely honestly, and critically, very very critically of each other as writers or staff members or team directors. I'm say everything goes wrong for the team. But if you'RE GONNA go into a major rice with three leaders. It's what could go wrong. It's not going to be pretty frankly you've got the world champion Alejandro Valverde who has just broken these back practically by doing something stupid that his attempted to do a whealy Allah Road McEwen Pizza, gone and falling backwards off his by Ouch. Tana already a grand to winner and. The Cultural at a man who feels A lot of. These quite culturally. It's a Spanish team and he's from Columbia and he is a national hero in. Columbia with go for good reason he rose from very, very poor circumstances to become just a professional writer but grand to a winner as well. Mikhail lender the handsome young. Cinematic matinee idol cyclists who is. The one you want to put on the front cover of your magazine and it is Gripping compelling and an amazing, and it's amazed by the candor that this would never have come out of the. US Postal documentary like this, and it would never come out of sky and everybody involved is completely speaking. With a relentless candidate that you wonder I'm the pigeon. You've got somewhere to go after they are look at this. Is Not, a place you on a team. Terrible. It's on Netflix. It was made by Netflix's actually and like I say it's just six quick episodes and The people who said that you should go see the documentary even if that like Medicare racing. I'll say the people who have not any interested in racing cycling hardly any of you I know it's one of the most buckets for Australia. But if you do know somebody who can't grab to sit with you for six hours and night when the two of the Frontal Turvy Leon to Spain on. Him To come and sit the what this Erica. Now I'll have a ball. How many hours early giving up to do that? Well, it's not a h episode gus kind of between thirty and forty minutes. Okay so not long much so. lemmings really relatively short stages. Yeah. Okay. Andrew before we go. We we we have to make a MEA culpa. A. Good. I like the NBA. Macau MAC is how I see A. World's. Released, the album back in ninety five, eighty, I, sit I sit. But was it Jeff Lynne Jeff Wayne might just wine the reason I that that. Why did I because? Lynn was the lead man in the alot. It sounds quite a bit like, Jeff? Wine. Yes and. You know I'm prompted. Rummaging around I'm pleased. I'm away every now and again this. Every again, probably twice in to use. On my radio program where I have said like last week I said that you can pick me up on this Katherine, do nerve was in louis miles less also Polish folk, and of course, straightaway someone takes gem rove. Not, and it's not an I'm not going. To make a stupid mistake. Well, if you let the soundtrack to that cal, you should listen to last week's jazz on Saturday because it was included something from that and it was all jazz from cinema or. Go to my CD Rackham put it on your. Thank you. That's why people listen to the radio man 'cause like. me saying really interesting funding source t stuff that spices up their morning. If, you'd like to hear more saucy Andrew Young tune in. Tune into future episodes of Glasgow's. That's right and if you want to hear more mea culpa.

Hbo right now is a surprisingly intimate portrait of a family. The family in question of course is that of actress mia farrow. It's made up of seven biological and adopted children and as the story unfolds it begins to accommodate the presence of a new boyfriend. The legendary comedian writer. Director woody allen early parts of the documentary feature home movies and extensive family interviews. It's you might say voyeuristic. That's probably putting it a little too strongly not in a bad way to peek into an upper bourgeois bohemian paradise in manhattan at a lake house and absolutely dreamy lake house in connecticut. And then of course everything about that. World is shattered. It's revealed that woody. Allen has been having an affair with farrow's adopted daughter soon yi may have started as early as her senior year in high school and then comes august fourth nineteen ninety-two and the infamous twenty minutes. The nub of this whole documentary really. What appears to be an unaccounted for. Twenty minutes at the lake house when woody allen allegedly absconded to the attic with a seven year old daughter dylan and molested her in the clip about to hear the first voice. You're gonna hear his dylan. Farrow followed by mia farrow and then various friends of the family. Every time he showed up at the apartment like a magnet he would just come straight to me intense affection. All time win in time when it became was there was nobody but the two of them and he began to an incredible amount of focus on her. He didn't want to see the other kids he wanted to see her. It was just so one track if he was there and we were there. Dillon did not play with the other children. He would take her to tell her story or take her for a walk or so. We would most time leave because there was no point. He followed dylan wherever she went. We be playing dylan. Nian ronan and i would look to see him. Standing there watching silently and once dylan noticed edge go away daddy go away this is priscilla time. Go away all right. Well we're joined for the segment by sam adams whose senior editor at slate for culture. Sam welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me sam. There's a lot in the documentary. It goes over what i think. Most people will already know that. Allen was supposedly cleared by a child abuse clinic at yale. Newhaven hospital Casts doubt on the legitimacy of that investigation. But there is one central thing. I think at the heart of this documentary. I think we need to discuss upfront. Which is that in the immediate aftermath of the alleged abuse. Mia farrow taped. Seven year. old dylan asking her to describe the incident. And for the first time those videotapes have been aired publicly in the documentary. What did you make of this show. I think we should also say to start off that. This is The four part series by kirby dick and amy's during who've been making movies about Sexual assault for about a decade now beginning with the invisible war which is about rape in the military The hunting ground which is about a college campuses and last year On the record which movie about the music producer. Russell simmons so they have a lot of experience and this area. He's hearing us in a particularly good at building rapport with survivors and understanding how to treat their stories. Sort of delicately with respect It was suggested to them that they made a movie. Focusing on incest. And that kind of brought them around to the idea of focusing on dylan farrow. I've spoken to the directors at this and there's a whole long story of how they kind of met with her and build that rapport You know shot the interview and had this tape. That mia farrow made of her. When she was seven four years we had kind of given it to her to do whatever she wanted with. Including destroy it or anything else and They were well into production before dylan decided that it was kind of appropriate to to give them this into your Equal reliever like what's new in this documentary. That is sort of a new thing. This tape has been aired before in the sense that has been part of you know various court cases. But it's never been made public. Did you go into watching it agnostic. Did you go in a with a set of priors did you find your feelings about this case reaffirmed or changed in any important way. I mean i believe dylan farrow. I wrote a piece Saying as much in two thousand fourteen when she published her now famous. Op ed in the new york times So i wasn't looking to have that kind of confirmed or denied if you're going in agnostic and certainly for going in disbelieving her i. I don't know if this documentary is going to change anybody's minds. I wonder if that's even possible at this point But it does really lay out kind of how this case evolved so much in in the public mind. I'm how much woody allen's reputation played into it often too. I think the detriment of kind of everyone involved and i think it also gives you a sense From the real bombshell and this as much as the dylan videotapes audiotapes. In the later episodes of phone conversations between woody allen and mia farrow Where he basically sort of straight up threatening her and and just to hear his voice. There is really the first time that i've kind of been taken out of that. Simliar persona that we all know. So well and really heard. I believe dylan farrow for a long time but that was the first time i felt like i. I heard the person who could have done this on audio tapes. Dana before we get you on a very quickly this. This movie changed my mind. I went in kind of. I would say agnostic in a way or just so sad for all of the circumstances and all of the participants on no matter what and And i came out completely convinced that That that girl was not coached. She's telling the truth. The girl on that videotape dana to me is not a coached child. She's she's saying what happened to her right. I think maybe like you steve. I went in feeling not so much agnostic. As just that there was a cloud of unknowing. Around this case that would be impenetrable. So i guess the question would be. Do you think this four hour documentary reveals what's within that cloud and although this documentary lays out as samples it in his his writing about it. The case for the prosecution very strongly. It is at once exhaustive for hours long and frustratingly blinkered in some ways. I mean if you followed this case even somewhat closely over the years especially since it became Back in the news again around two thousand fourteen. You're waiting for some some shoes to drop that. The filmmakers never drop and. I think that there's something about this documentary. And this is not you know me believing or disbelieving or issuing any kind of apologised but there are so many things that are omitted from the story that it feels to me sometimes like an authorized documentary coming from the faroe family We hear very little well. This is in part because they refuse to participate but we hear very little from any of mia farrow's kids who either disbelieve the story. I including moses farrow who refuse to participate but who also has this extensive sam. I'm sure you're familiar with it. Extensive blog post in which abuse allegations against bef pharaoh which are never mentioned the documentary and i was just sort of waiting for there to be some acknowledgement of facts. That are so well known that you know even if you followed the story only slightly you remember them. There's something that sophie gilbert wrote for the atlantic on this documentary which identified with very strongly where she says that when she when she found herself remembering these things that had been omitted. The abuse allegations against me a ferro etc That she felt guilty about remembering them right. Because you you want to believe dylan you watch this documentary and feel that she is credible but i think some of the legal complications of this story are glided over very quickly Another thing. I found very convincing about the documentary. Sam was the testimony of i. It's at least two new york times. Reporters who covered the case at the time are willing to kind of break with gray lady protocols and share something of their own inter feelings about what they had been covering both seem entirely convinced that alan is guilty but one of the voices something. i think. That's very critical to this. And you say it as well and your wonderful piece about The documentary which is that. There's a level of identification with certain kinds of artists. It begins. I think with how much of what appears to be themselves is poured into their work and woody allen film filmmaker and persona groomed. I think one of the cultural critics interviewed for the documentary. Says words to that effect and it's remarkable now going back a even if there had never been any of. These controversies right. If he were still happily married to mia farrow. There'd be a reappraisal worked. And i would think these avi his screen characters relationships obsessively a getting into sexual romantic relationships with with significantly younger like really dangerously younger women. I mean obviously manhattan is the great example in dana. That's like talk a little bit about the the blinds cultural blindspot or or put another way the vastness of the shift in public sensibilities around this that movie for most of my adult life was regarded as you know along with the godfather films and a taxi driver in the score. Says he films easily. Annie hall and manhattan. You know a movie about a man in his forties. Having a relationship with a seventeen year olds as one of the masterpieces of the era with. Scarcely anyone mentioning. Just how utterly fucking creepy. It is one of the episodes of this documentary. I believe it's the third one. Mainly is is is devoted not completely but largely to Telling these stories through his work into looking at this ongoing know this ever yawning age gap between his heroes and heroines as his career went on and it doesn't make a point. Which is something. I've always thought about. Woody allen's work since then since nineteen ninety-one ninety-two in this scandal. Came out is that that seems like precisely the moment when his work could have gone in one of two directions when he was starting to mature as filmmaker and make movies about About adults in a more complex way crimes and misdemeanors came out Around then as did husbands and wives his last movie with me pharaoh which was made and i didn't realize this until watching this documentary. You know after all this happened. And when mia farrow was still trying to work with this person that she thought had you know essentially destroyed her daughter and brought to toe two of her daughters and brought ruin into her family So there he was making these movies very briefly that we're grappling with these more complex moral questions and you know really having some heroes. That were dark you know. And and and doing bad things. And then i feel like he slipped into this era that he's been in ever since of increasing complacency of increasing kind of self repetition and these more and more absurd age gaps in his relationships even when he stopped being in his own movies right. I mean he'll he'll still cast it with with those sorts of dynamics and it just has always seemed to me that there's an unconscious guilt being played out in the movies that he made a in those years and that you can trace his decline as a filmmaker almost precisely to that that beginning of that moral decline. And that's whether you believe the dylan allegations. Are i think the suni province story alone kind of marks. The beginning of that time maybe gets into sort of over interpretation a little bit but i always felt that after husbands and wives i did not realize that mia farrow kind of went back and shot half that movie after finding the x. rated polaroid's of of sunni president. Which is just like staggering into horrifying but also like just what strength heart to go and do that. But i do yeah. I felt like something kind of went out of woody allen's movies of that part and they become a lot they feel a lot less personal if he's kind of holding something back at that point in and whether that's positive or not i don't know but it is and that's coupled with using clearly. Incoming movies is to kind of strike back in ways. I had sort of forgotten until looking at the time line around this movie. That the first movie he made after dylan farrow's op. Ed was published in two thousand. Fourteen was irrational man which is sort of a crime and punishment Riff in which joaquin phoenix's character kind of proves his existential bona fide by murdering a corrupt Family court judge. He's made a bad custody decision Which is just an great Eventually falls down an elevator shaft so perhaps his actions are fully endorsed. But boy that seems awfully direct. You know this raise it. When you mentioned that movie walking phoenix in it just raises again. Sam that for a long time it was a stat stat clearly. A status symbol to appear in a woody allen movie. I still remember the poster from nineteen seventy seven of any hall and it was this long list of names of people who of people who appeared in the film like paul. Simon has this Cameo in just cramming all of these bold faced names onto the onto the poster and ever since then it's just been a thing like you know. Have you been in a woody allen movie out or haven't used kind of like one of the marks of distinction on a hollywood acting. Cv and blais. It really took forever. I mean i really almost feel like it's been since metoo that finally people are saying i regret having done it or saying i will never do it. Yeah i mean for me. One of the most viscerally just gutting passages in the documentary is when you get to the fourth episode. And it's going over the golden globes tribute to woody allen in two thousand fourteen and that was sort of one ronan farrow tweeted. I miss the tribute. Did they put the part. Where a seven year old girl accused him of molesting him before. Or after annie hall and and that just kind of you know opened up a whole subject again. Led to dylan's Up at times and the documentary can replace that tribute effectively from dylan's point of view like inter cutting clips from it. Where dying keaton cate. Blanchett are all talking about wonderfully as with dylan talking about how profoundly violating it felt to watch that and that's just I feel complicit in that somehow our that that feels like something that we could have the power to stop somehow and it just reminds you how recent a lot of this is how you know the part that venerating. The work has played in a sense. You kind of re victimizing dylan farrow over and over again. All through these years. All right well. Sam adams is culture editor at slate sam.

We love to hear from you. All right well. I think of the golden globes as something of the anti oscars they give awards to both tv and film the ceremonies a boozy gala format. It's more intimate less pompous a bit louche. The whole thing is just way less self important so much so it scarcely matters who wins or loses. Who cares right Just party get to see. You know jack nick the pores on jack nicholson's face but nonetheless it's been beset by scandal and to help. Explain it julia. I'm going to turn to you because your paper has done an investigation into what's going on with the hollywood foreign press association and the and the award ceremony. Yeah well let me just start with the basics. The hollywood foreign press association is a group of international entertainment journalists who started giving awards out Early eighty years ago and who have been beset with scandal. There's a widespread perception that they're awards or at least their attention can be bought or at least swayed with lavish perks lunches. Trips to foreign locales gifts occasionally specific gift gets called out. They had to return a bunch of four hundred dollar coach. Watches a few years ago. they've been kicked on and off of television in thousand hundred two. They gave as dora an award for essentially best new artist or emerging talent After accepting a trip from her husband that was pretty lavish and The the show was bounced off of a network then and came back on In recent years the hp has been really working to combat the perception that they're just a bunch of rondos and have stepped up their charitable giving have donated a lot of money But the globe have taken on this strange position of being the televised kickoff to award season An award most people in the industry acknowledge is kind of fluky and random. You know not necessarily A rigorous determination of the best work of any given year but nevertheless everybody dresses up and shows up and buys ads him. We met the la times covered extensively. And it's it's it has an importance that is not in accordance with the randomness of the institution behind it and to terrific reporters on my team at josh rottenberg in stacey perman have spent the last few months digging into this institution in the wake of a lawsuit filed last summer from a norwegian journalists. Sasha flos who alleged that she was being kept out unfairly and They published an investigation about ten days ago. Now revealing a few things about the institution. One that you know the the eighty-seven journalists within it not all of them are currently practicing. Journalists established outfits to there are a bunch of journalists at more establish outlets who have trouble getting in three among those eighty seven journalists are no black journalists whatsoever for As the group has earned more money from a more lucrative deal with nbc which renegotiated a few years ago it has started setting up more and more internal committees and paying. It's eighty seven members from its nonprofit coffers to sit on those committees so there is an archive committee a history committee. There's a travel committee that pays twenty three hundred dollars a month Which continued issuing monthly payments to the members on it not to arrange travel just goes on trips throughout the pandemic despite the fact that trips were all but nonexistent and you know they're among their sources were a number of current members who are dissatisfied and feel that the group needs more widespread reform and in the wake of that investigation various groups around hollywood including time's up the directors guild and others seem to watch particularly onto the lack of diversity in the organization and launched a hashtag. Time's up globes to encourage them to no longer have no black members. They seem to have not had a block member for more than twenty years. one of the recent presidents couldn't remember who that was or when they had one So it's not been a area of extensive focus for them so that was all the precursor to sunday nights globes where all of these charges and claims and counterclaims were somewhat addressed onstage. But that's the that's the backstory. All right so dana. There wasn't awards ceremony they got handed out to me. One of the great pleasures the golden clubs as if you decided not to ignore them. You could be thrilled that something. You admired one and you'd be completely dismissive. Something you didn't admire did win you just of could pick and choose just mattered. The stakes were so low in some sense compared to the top of the academy awards as briefly. Just say any big surprises or or you know Snobs or or or Especially meritorious From this passer. Money honestly especially going in with the with the story from the time that julia just talks about. I mean that was that had broken and was fresh in my mind. You know as these globes were airing and so it was really even harder than usual to To approach the show with that sort of analytical critical idea that you know let's let's talk about the surprising snubs seem suddenly to me like it must be somehow shady incorrupt but at the same time as you say it's always good to feel one of your wins. I noticed that too. Stephen metcalfe favorites Jason today case of ted lasso and catherine o'hara shits creek both one for a performer in a musical or comedy greased a lot of palms but i had a hard time focusing on any of the value of any of the winds. Just i mean the globes. As julius started off by saying were already something of a laughing stock in the industry and hard to take seriously and awards shows in general for me even when you get to the more prestigious ones like the oscars are just the. It's very hard for me to either. Cheer or boo or talk about snobs because it all feels like it's part of an artificial game that has it into some degree to do with paola and marketing etc. Although i didn't really know until the story broke how how. Extreme that paola structure seems to be in this particular organization. But i mean for example if you want one of a shocking omission i may destroy which i think all of us probably would agree is one of the best shows we talked about over the past year on this show got no recognition at all from from the hollywood foreign press association while emily in paris which i- mercifully never had to see but when i was away one week i remember you all trashing on this show Was nominated so. I mean there's obviously there's no such thing as an objective quality scale of what should or should not be nominated but i feel like those kind of oversights common the globes that we barely need to remark on them anymore. Well and i the one other thing. The piece did report which i forgot to mention is The details of Junk that thirty of the eighty-seven hp members participated in in which they were flown to paris. By the of which likes to stipulated that does pay for its own airfare And then put up for two days at the peninsula in paris. Which is a hotel were. The rock rates are Started fourteen hundred bucks a night And treated to launch his around town. So thirty of eighty seven. Voters had ample opportunity in paris to learn more about emily harris which may or may not have affected their voting. Yeah i mean. I think one thing that that made the total lack of black members resonate was some of the oversights this year in recognizing work that centered block stories and black artists and blah creators. So there are a number of ensemble films that were not nominated for best picture including judas in the block messiah five bloods You know the the reigning marine chadwick boseman one for actor but yes did not get nominated for best picture and You know and then. And then the oversight of i may destroy you in the limited series category. Was you know so so surprising that it came in for criticism. Premie emily impera season one writer. Who were not bad saying that. That was crazy that her show had been nominated and And i may destroy you had not so. There is kind of a funny hologram quality to the story. Where if you tilt it one way to a certain fairly small set of people. The news that the hollywood foreign press association has sort of exclusionary practices in its membership. isn't particularly focused on diversity is step in various ways and has some self dealing questionable ethical practices is like not big but then there actually is a large group of people who just watch it on. Tv and until this year it had incredibly strong ratings for nbc it's ratings cratered which it's hard to know whether that has to do with the pandemic or people being sick of watching stuff at home or what but to all of those people who typically tune in its word show like you know there were various people who read the story internally who were like the the golden globes are much mocked me like. Oh yeah like. it's a funny like how. How are you on awards. And it's a very reasonable practice in modern american life. Do not care about them at all. But but and but. But i think this stacey and josh the i reporters i know of to have gotten sourcing and financial records from within the institution To to show exactly where they're spending their money. And i think the question now said so they three. Hfea members did speak to The need for more inclusive membership on the show. They got three people up on stage. Issue six sentences and after the show. Time's up sent notes to the fbi and nbc requesting to meet with people and and Suggesting that merely adding a few black members to the group or not will not be enough to salve its problems. I mean one thing i think we all admire about. The golden globes ceremony is the shirt on seemed to vet the scripts of the presenters. Amy poehler and tina fey were were pretty savage. Corrective is in my reading of it. There was a high degree of ood candidate excoriate. When it came to the scandals the hollywood foreign press association is made up of around ninety international. No black journalists attend movie junkets each year in search of a better life. We say around ninety because a couple of them might be ghosts. And it's rumored that the german member is just a sausage that somebody drew a little face on. There is a kind of uninhibited on edited quality to it which funnily enough will probably get it. Practices cleaned up more quickly than oscars have just such a carefully guarded pseudo institution in american cultural life. Well and i think actually that speaks to one of the questions in this as well if quote quote unquote. Everybody knows this. The date of pa is is a bit of a joke stipulating that that's a very small everybody of hollywood people. Why does the. Why does everybody still pay attention. Why is it really show up what everybody watch. And i think the answer to that really actually lies in the show itself which has been produced by clark productions for at which is now. Tcp for many years and they lean into it. It's a little bit of an in joke. Like the most frequent hosts are either tina fey. And amy poehler who've done it. A few times are ricky surveys. Who's done it regularly in recent years and they've done a great job putting on a great show and that's actually where you know the reason they're able to give themselves all these committee payments is because the show the fee that nbc pays to to run. The show has increased massively massively the so they have money now both to give away to the committee to protect journalists and to establish an increasing number of internal committees which they pay themselves. It's the show. It's a success of the show as production itself that is the key to the power of the institution. And so we'll see. Nbc would be a group that would have some leverage to force real change. All right well. We'll link on our show page to the couple pieces. The your reporters did julia the a.

He's leaning out the second floor window of city lights bookstore waving to customers streaming into the bookstore that he cofounded he's everywhere and And you look coney island of the mind. His book of nineteen fifty eight is in the hands of a million. People are mill a million copies. Sold you know so that that in itself he's just he's just all round and i do think we should talk about city lights books. Because i know. I know the gab fest interested in the larger cultural effects of people in particular fields i mean the poetry community and the idea of a poetic social space. He was really devoted to this idea. In north beach of a bookstore. That would become a haven a you know a ground for conversation kiva of sorts And of course they've been poetry centered bookstore meccas before and since it's not the only one but it store asian and his devotion to it even today it is a place. Let's face it where young people who have a vague sense of being wanting to be part of the arts. They they go to san francisco to to go to city lights That's a hard thing to create if you think you put the put the poems and the performances in the context of this broad social space which is a first glimpse at that scene on the part of a lot of nascent poets. You've got a big effect. I think ally wanted to ask you as well since furlan getty was known as such a creator of community in san francisco About his connection with the obscenity trial or his publishing house the city. Light's presses connection with the with the obscenity trial of allen ginsberg's howl which came out in nineteen fifty-six published by city lights and then became this this hot button. You know homoerotic poems that that became sort of a piece of samis dot almost that That furlan getty kept in circulation. It's really an important moment. Dana you know. Furling getty was stalwart. In this case it could have ruined the bookstore. And by the way furlan getty didn't think of himself as a beat poet. It's he's a beat poet. You know maybe we can look at one of the poems where. He's clearly beat bo it but he thought of himself as a a supporter of poets and became identified with the beats because he stood so adamantly behind ginsburg. The i don't know if it went all the way the supreme court. But you know this is. This was a precedent about you know social value or you know socially redeeming importance. That's a really important case. And furling getty is the reason why we have that case. There were others of course bonnet barney rossett and others in new york who were doing the same kind of work but this was. This was a crucial on because it brought the younger generation in in a way that d. h. lawrence case would not have there's so many diverse associations with failing getty such a long life seated so many different careers. Oddly sometimes a little forgotten that he himself produced poetry. I mean not forgotten but it can take sides. Teeter a backseat to it. What talk about a couple of poems that you admire and why yeah. You're so right steve. I mean we tend to underestimate furlan. There's so many great poets surrounding him. I mean i want to mention to poems really briefly and then i was wondering if you you guys would be game to listen to a performance talk about a poem spontaneously. Are you game for that. Dana steve so game. You're so yes that'd be fun. I to represent two other real classics. You can get them on the web anywhere Sometime during eternity which is ridiculous tone. Beat tone poem about jesus. Christ i'll i'll i'll the first couple of lines in with my a beat impersonation if you don't mind it's about christ sometime during eternity. Some guys show up and one of them who shows up real late is the kind of carpenter from some square type place like galilee. And he starts wailing and claiming he is hip etcetera etcetera in there. You go okay. So that's the beat christ and dog. That is a poem for all dog lovers. This is a san francisco dove. Who ps he just doesn't believe in hierarchy so he pees everywhere ap's on drunks and doorways but he also ps on the cops. The dog freely trotz in the street past puddles and babies cats and cigars pool rooms and policemen. He doesn't hate cops he merely has no use for them. You just gotta love that. I love up. Yeah and you just gotta you just gotta love you. They thought it'd being performed if you've got to love the car culture in the tone because if you just read those on the page frankly it's ridiculous to talk about christ that way There's all kinds of things that are wrong but it's over the top so the poem. I thought we might listen to Is called ball canto and we're recording this at the beginning of baseball season. So maybe that's right baseball canto watching baseball sitting in the sun eating popcorn reading. Ezra pound and wishing one seattle would hit a hole right through the anglo-saxon tradition and the first canto and demolish the barbarian invaders when the san francisco. Giants take the field and everybody stands up the national anthem with some irish tenors boys piped over the loudspeakers with all the players struck dead in their places on the white umpires like cops in their black suits and little black caps pressed over their hearts standing straight and still like some funeral of a learning bartender facing east as if expecting some great white hope for the founding fathers to appear on the horizon like ten sixty six or seventeen seventy six or all that but willie mays appears instead the bottom of the first and aurora goes up as he clouds. The first one into the sun and takes off like a foot runner from thieves. The ball is lost in the sun and maidens wail after him but he keeps running through the anglo saxon epic and tito went comes up looking like a bull fighter in his tight pants and small pointed shoes and the right field bleachers go. Mad with chicanos and blacks in brooklyn beer drinkers sweet. Tito sake to him. Sweet tepeto and sweet tito puts his foot in the bucket and smacks one. Don't come back at all. Please around the base and his lackeys escaping from the united fruit company as the gringo dollar beats out the pound and three tito beats it out like he's beating out usury not to mention fascism and anti semitism and one marris. Y'all comes up. And the takano. Bleaches go loco again. As one belts the first ball out of sight and rounds i and keeps going around second rounds third and keeps going and hits pay dirt to the roars of the grungy populace at some nut presses. The backstage panic button for the tape recorded national anthem again. Do save the situation but it don't stop nobody this time in their evolution round the loaded white basis in this last of the great anglo-saxon ethics in the territorial lebron of baseball well dana. It's got everything in it. It's the kitchen sink. It's like the whiteness baseball as pounds. Fascism what did you think. I mean what i kept thinking as he was careening through that kind of series of stacked you know russian doll references was the fact one of the menzel effects facts of his life which was that he had a doctorate in comparative literature. From the sorbonne. I mean that. Was this kind of crazy mixture of you. Know of what a poetry slam type vocal performance. And you know him sort of taking you on this trip through literary history at a baseball game so i that that's a moment where you just see. He have been a teacher. You know you kind of see the breadth of his his literary knowledge and and references in that another thing that made me think of is exactly as you said outlet on the page that would be. I don't know exactly what it would be but it would not be what we just heard and the idea that you know to him. The oral tradition was really associated with the kind of poetry he wanted to produce speaks to that communitarian ethos of city lights bookstore. We were talking about. Yeah and also steve this kinda sticky quality like when he performs you know Tito fuentes is running around the bases like he's escaping from the united fruit company. You know it's a laugh line It's funny yeah. Yeah no. It's so interactive and it. It just seems like such a precursor to the slam. You know Ethos is great. I love some of the lines. The pop out at the The grungy populous you know just you know. I love that. He failing getting this palm and the beats in general. They're trying to get on the right side of history which is very often if not always not with the winners of history. In a way you know and it's like baseball. Is this possibly utopian space in which that can happen. You know where the where the grungy populous is is finds itself perfectly thrilled and the revolution round the loaded white bases in the last of the great anglo-saxon epochs. It's this this idea of you. Know utopian place in which the right people last or allowed to thrive. it's beautiful. Yeah it's totally right. Frankly leftist poem trying to interpret baseball as a space of liberation. There's a there's a flaw in that net argument but this is early. I mean baseball's integrated by this point but the issue of the whiteness of baseball which becomes so much more important decades. Slater is all here. It's all here any ties. It back to modernist anti semitism. He ties it back to the problem of poetry. He you know he makes. It seem like baseball is part of the conversation. But it's also a matter of literary history. It's exactly what you want to beat poem to do. I think that was such a pleasure to take apart with you all. I wonder if you could send listeners to a place that they can find lawrence getty reading his own. Poetry is there. Does he have a website. Is it oliver youtube. or what. thank you for asking There's a there's an archive of furlan getty poems at penn sound p. e. n. s. o. u. n. d.

You can listen now and your favorite podcast app or at rebel eaters. Club dot com. Now's the moment in our podcast. And we endorse dana. What do you have steve. I'm going to endorse a an article on a little obscure publication known as the new york times but which i would have missed if not forwarded to me by a friend yesterday who knows me too well and knows that i can't resist any kind of story about archeology. Paleontology early man. You know what distinguishes us from the hominids. That kind of stuff is right up my alley and every once in a while. I bore you our listeners. With another story about it. Remember the old bread. Julia and i were obsessed with the The pumpkin mummified bread that this is in fact a story about language and about the history of language that i found really fascinating. The title of the pieces neanderthals. Listen to the world. Much like a reconstructed. Neanderthal ear adds a new piece to the puzzle of whether the early humans could speak so There's just there's a lot in here that i'm going to get wrong if i try to summarize it i'll just send people to the article. But essentially there's a debate going on among scientists early. Humans early hominids type creatures whether any any of them had language besides homo sapiens. And so this new discovery is that the anatomy of the ear of the neanderthal would have allowed them to hear the same range of sound says a homo sapiens can of course Years don't really survive. Inner ears do but you know the your outer ear shape is gone by the time. You're neanderthal skeleton. As your tongue. So it's impossible for us to know ultimately whether neanderthals could speak or not but this some of these new discoveries about neanderthal ear anatomy have opened up the possibility that they could have. And this is all part of in general. I think a movement to sort of extend humanness. I and further back into history right. I mean that we are now finding older and older cave art all over the world and rock art and things that neanderthal type creatures made that are art like in in other ways and You know essentially just that. The definition of humanity is starting to radiate outwards from just the homeless paeans species that it's always been limited to so you know you can go down that rabbit hole as deep as you like but one place to start might be piece about neanderthal ears and will link to it on the show page That sounds cool. Julia what do you have Are you ready for me to ruin your dinners. It's morning so we got a few hours to go. Okay are you. Are you ready for me to give you feelings of pepper. Inadequacy this like these. Are steve mcgrath. Quality curve balls here all right i am recommending two things today. One is the diaspora spice coz single origin iran yet pepper. Did you know that you're pepper. Was being dulled in muted by having so many multifarious origins you needed to have just one origin. I learned about this from the la times cooking newsletter. Which is a font of interesting stuff. Every week Always flags interesting cookbooks. I should know about all kinds of things and at the end of january. Bill addison are critic and wrote about the spice bar and gaspara co which has a bunch of different spaces and i ordered on a whim. This single origin iranian pepper. And it's so good you guys. It's like an. I love black pepper anyway heavy black pepper cooker and user black pepper parsley sort of underrated in the space You know everyone's like oh get your fancy whatnot. You could pretty much just put black pepper and parsley on everything and be pretty happy. But if you've been you know feeling that way about black pepper with just whatever you're getting from mccormick's and the space i'll you gotta get yourself diaz brecqhou and get yourself some of this pepper. Which is i believe it has It has some some suggested tasting notes on the jar which were particularly Predictably goofy like jammie fig chocolate and citrus. Maybe but it did kind of smell like all those things and it tasted really good and we ended up having one pepper shaker pepper grinder that had this in another pepper grinder that had normal pepper in it and everyone kept grabbing this pepper grinder and asking for quote of the good pepper so sorry to your previously. Beloved pepper seem lame. But you gotta check out this onion pepper if you're a pepper vile and if you want to continue making discoveries this you should also check out the temps cooking newsletter okay. A couple of questions first of all the the company that makes this diaspora co. yes so like d. i. p. o. r. a space co period. Yes yes brooklyn. Okay just checking and then this sloop important thing about this pepper is that it's like you know it's like basically a single non hybridize strand of pepper that goes back to the primordial slime. I think what's important is. It's just all from one place or often use okay. Yeah it's from tyranny. Kerala and it's an heirloom seed variety. Oh gosh it's heirloom pepper bland. It's a blast. It's a blend of ten plus indigenous and wild varieties grown in this one particular region of india. And do they know. If in its deepest origins at had rudimentary language you know what the neanderthals grinding it. Onto your families some of this pepper and then come back to me and start making pepper jugs i this pepper can speak. Listen to what this pepper has to tell you. Steve see how well you're you know. Ear cartilage is developed. Dear learn to listen to the pepper. Okay i like that. I'm endorsing a an article. In the new york review of books about patrick lee firmer widely regarded as the greatest travel writer of the twentieth century. Lived one of the astonishing. Have been talk about failing getty's longevity. I think firmer lived until hundred or very close to it. Author of remarkable books but he wrote an account of his undercover operations on the island of crete during world war against the nazis in which he posed for several months if not longer as a creighton shepherd and he was just a You know he was just a virtuosic language learner until was able to speak creedon greek whatever he needed in order to get by and he engineered an incredibly daring of a nazi general which he wrote an account of. And what i love about this piece is that it both allows the reader to swoon along to the romantic adventure that firmer underwent in order to successfully pull off a bloodless abduction of this general while also examining whether it was strategically worth it and and firmer quite cunningly attempted to do it in such a way that there wouldn't be bloody reprisals against the credence who had grown to very sincerely love and he wasn't quite successful in that even though he made every good faith effort to have that happen and it was on his own conscience that he might have gotten the balance between the strategic advantage of abducting the general versus the possible violence visited upon the local credence in the aftermath of it under suspicion of having been complicit with the with the kidnapping he might have gotten that balance wrong in so the guy had another on the yet another eighty years to live or whatever it was. I mean you know sixty seventy years to live with it on his conscience and he agonized about it. So i think it's. It's a wonderfully balanced account that doesn't allow schoolboy adventurism of it to overwhelm the seriousness of both a piece of writing and the subject for you know a retrospective analysis. It's just really good. It's it's it's fun and And morally considered so. I highly recommended. It's called escape from fortress crete. The writers himself an accomplished travel writer. Colin through brown. I'm probably thubron mispronouncing. His name and i apologize but it's a to really worthwhile piece. Excellence julia thank you. Thanks dana as always be.

"God oh my god. Oh my god i almost forgot which one was the play and which one was my brain just went somewhere else for a second and i almost hit the wrong button. Like i haven't what is wrong with me. Hey you know what it's the pure vita like you're just laid back pure vida. What is so five four. Where do you feel now that we're like over the five hundred hump fine. I feel like. I feel like i'm still like like You know my mom says when there's a full moon that there's energy three days before and three days after i feel like i'm still feeling the energy and positive vibes our five hundred episode. It feels like it extends as it did five episodes before and five episodes after blake. Learn this information from that hogwarts school or what probably okay. I don't usually ask follow up questions. Don't ask for citation most of the time right so well and i like stuff that we can't prove or disprove. Yeah yeah it is what it is. Yeah just accept it well. It's good to be back too good to be back here on the show with you. Sarum i keep getting brainiacs telling me to Watch a documentary. So i did. Yeah tony. it's called kid ninety. Have you watched it. You've been gallivanting. No i didn't even get like netflix. And hulu and costa rica. what no you don't get hulu. You get netflix. And my mom has that wonder why. And you know it's is like they give you you get a totally different internet explorer when i tried to shop for stuff in the united states in co. You can't like you can't change your location or i couldn't figure out how to make it so that the results that i was getting were for ones that were in it makes sense. Obviously they're not going to but you know it just felt it was like. I don't feel like you when you're on the internet you to imagine that it's universal correct and it is very much not right strange. Yeah well this one is on hulu kid ninety and it is Featuring soleil moon frye aka punky brewster and not that. I'm a punky brewster enthusiast. Or anything. I do enjoy sulaiman fry But the thing that makes this documentaries so great is the same thing that makes any documentary. Great which is incredible documentation over a long period of time especially from a long time ago. Anytime you have that old footage and stuff it really adds to it. And so she was l- obsessive about documenting her life from the time. She was on punky brewster. And you know that was the eighties. So cameras and stuff. We're not ubiquitous that time so people were sort of Still unguarded around them. There wasn't a fear that this was going to be an internet or something right. There didn't exist a platform for them to be leaked on or whatever aid and it just felt like your home movies your private collection and so she was just surrounded by pretty much. Every young person that was famous in the eighties and nineties. Wow that's what made a cool seeing all those other faces. Interacting with each other in their real lives. Leonardo di caprio or sort of age group of star. Oh what's her name. Who's so bad. Ass and juliette lewis right like that era feel like she was always hanging out there too and they just all were like little l. a. Kids who were but like we're trying to be normal and But it's fun to watch because yes it's install java. Yes it's fun to see what they were really like but they also unpack a lot of crap from that time where a lot of young people in the media were doing terrible things committing suicide even like jonathan brandis certain in just how they missed the signs and just weren't in touch with the mental health conversation. It's more prevalent. now i do. When did the rights of children like child at the rules about children child actors. Come into play like what kind of rules like the ones about how much time they have to spend on set. What kind of care they get in going to school and everything. Because i was this lake maybe early in that transition and like we were kind of figuring out i betcha that's nothing that's like changing to a ha- in they're always adding new precautions in things so it's probably still wild west to a certain extent. Yeah but they talked about that to how they were in this adult business and were expected to perform like adults and have that responsibility but that they were kids. Yeah do you remember when she was a teenager and was on the cover of people because she had gotten a breast reduction. You're probably yeah. But i do remember like in the peripheral of the. Yeah you know like that story or at least becoming aware that a breast reduction was thing i mean. Can you believe that. How can you even imagine what it was like to be a child star and then turn into not just a woman but young woman with a huge chest they all. They often have to get reductions. The other one. I think of is the girl who what woman who plays alex on modern family. She did the same thing right and they used. I watched those seasons and watch them try so hard to cover up her chest right because the just the presence of breast sexualizes god how old you are and like like. How sad is that to that. They do that in tv. And even if like whether so and okay but also you know i. I'm sure everybody has reasons for doing that if she wants to. Go get it but that you're taking away I would imagine that there was pressure. But you're taking away like A get sexualize over-centralised and then somebody else who does have you know big boobs like that doesn't see says like it's a bad thing and like now. They feel like they have to do that right. Well the male gaze is so strong forever young girl but imagine if you're also in the public eye famous child star. Oh i can't imagine but she. She talked about losing her virginity to charlie sheen roots absorb johnny depp and she was like i want to marry one of them and what was crazy is not only was she taking all this footage but saving even her voice mails. So you know you. They play voicemails from all. These people hastily. It's charlie whatever oh crazy. This is good. Yeah i mean. You're a kid in the nineties lake. And i've been like following all those accounts recently because you know we liked the little nostalgia stuff love so 'nineties nineties. Yes and then the thirty s fuck. I think thirty af. Do you know that one. No that one's good. I'm forty a right right. Well no but you would appreciate this thirty a. f. is i think it's what it's called but we just feel bad old stuff. What does it make you feel comfortable comfort. But also like a little bit of a little bit of lightness to the present situation. Really an because. I remember for example like i saw. There's one that i follow. That will show like pages of daleas magazine. I remember looking at that magazine and like my mom never ordered a maybe like one or two times. I got stuff on there. Mostly because i had and we talked about this when i was in. Costa rica is very difficult. Time shopping in stores. I did not fit into anything. I didn't fit into the normal sizes the standard sizes right on. Yeah and i was like. I didn't fit into one through thirteen or fifteen. They didn't and so i was like It was just a a difficult shopping experience. And so i my mom was like you should not order from there and so it became like this mysterious thing that i wanted so bad and like i was very serious to me like look into delays magazine and like wishing i had that and wanted to be that and now i look back on that with. I'm like this over. Which kind of makes me think that like anything. That i'm feeling like right now is like this like you're fine. You're well on the other hand a really good shopping. Experience is what you'll find when you go to bloom. Scape ticket plants. Oh my gosh. I love this your whole house. Oh sues you said it. I have i have at my house. A hose hookup. Right on my patio.

Write it down and watch Kid nine ni. you'll love it. And then the other thing. I watched what you should definitely not watch probably was the Alan versus phero. The woody allen. Nope definitely not yeah watching. It was like sarah definitely should not watch this. Yep i know what. I can and know what i can't watch so oh god i'm sick you know. I saw one photo one or little clip came to think about it. My mind of how he touches her around the waist and that is what has made me like. I'm like. I'm like true. Like that. And when i see i see it out in real life. I'm like that don't do that. Like gives me so angry. I know that touch. I want to rip their actual balls off. I fantasize about that do well in that situation and then like what and then like oh just shut them down their throat and be like wow. I say that you know because you have to imagine that little little anger room inside you'll get out because then it feels like you have some power in the situation that maybe you were. Not maybe were powerless. And i i mean. I tip my hat to dylan the Survivor because what what a brave person to Continue telling the story. Even though for decades people were like. Yeah but he's funny and and you and me. It was a woman scorned so she probably told you to say that all the standard stuff. That was really what i took away. I mean the story itself is so interesting but the bigger picture of this narrative of parental alienation. That they do in courtrooms. Where you know you say. Oh the moms just turning the child against me. They said that to my mom. So right it's just standard now. And they revealed where it came from. What book had started it and how this person didn't even base it on a study or anything. It was just like this feeling kind of like the With the midlife crisis that it's just like this sounds right so it must be my god and so that's troubling but i mean that guy is making creep. I mean even if the dylan farrow thing hadn't happened. Woody allen is still creep and i can see it. He's obsessed with young girls and all of his movies. That's what they're all about is like some sixty year old grow. My guy might with a young rural. Oh god and people just right what they know. And it's like this whole other thing that we often talk about where men get call geniuses. Yeah so and then it gives them license to do all sorts of things and but he's tells martin so funny who cares. He's a creep. Who cares so gross in. Why do we keep. Oh god it just feels like a lot of people got their foot in the door early in a time where things were like. We weren't as aware right. Yes and then we were there. We like grandfathered people in. And i'm sick of that because now i'm thinking is how fucking good are woody allen movies anyway and aren't there some other voices that we should here because like i've heard like i mean who was his name. Who wrote get out jordan peele. No yes yes. Everything he has done is like and i. Can you name any like black writer or any person of color woman you know. And it's like yeah. We're taking away the opportunity from people who have strong voices in who are are representing so much more. And then these people who've grandfathered in and then we just keep letting tell their stories because they're these quote unquote geniuses like danny move back in the seventies. Who cares what the thing he did. Seventy four movies in forty eight years. It's like that's enough. Win your point of view sir. Yeah thanks yes yeah. Why are we letting this guy talks. Till i'm done by i mean. Of course don't let us keep talking. I mean five hundred before his is like this different or women. I'll give them phone. That's the one thing i wanted to tell you. I was comparing the comments beneath your five hundred episode picture compared to the ones undermine Oh so years like congratulations. Get a girl. Whatever undermine one of them said what's the show called pickled livers and one of them said. I know and i was like wait. I don't get it and then one said where's the diversity. And i was like do you mean between me and sarah. Well she's square. Does that count. I didn't think that. But i just thought that's a really weird thing to right under that picture. Where's the diversity. Oh that's me that's well. Yeah and i feel like to think that we in within our show. We don't have to argue about this defend ourselves. You got that that our mind please do. I'm sure there were nice things to like to why. Well it's i mean minors a so that also is i need more. It's just here i. It's thirst like i was just like you know like like click baiting like what like like. You should try that again. I was selling my body suze. Nice comments you can't doesn't mean undermine mckinney pick will actually you can. Can you please not though anyway. Yes you're right. Though the stories of other voices it's their turn shut up. What are your eighty five. You're disgusting and stop Lusting after children please. He's eighty-five yes. Oh yeah he's he. He can jumped by very okay so i did. I do recommend the series to other people. If it's not triggering for you because it is a fascinating. And it's a good way to look at the bigger picture of abuse and secrecy and celebrity and male female blah blah blah. I will say if you can handle that and if you don't feel so triggered or if you feel like sometimes you are if you're survivor and you have those feelings of doubt of that. We all do myself of. Did i make that up. Did i did my mom. Just say those things then sometimes seeing that and hearing that from other people who are like nope. This one hundred percent happened is validating 'cause i find that we're the when you said that i was like oh i was having that thought the other day and then i jumped in with my awareness and was like no that would be classic classic. What you're feeling right now. Of course that's that. here's the facts. One that twice. So never stops the dylan story to me is credible. I do believe her all of that stuff. But like i said even if that were not part of the story he has demonstrated who he is in other ways like marrying and being with sunni and all of the other things he's created with his art that are questionable so put it all together and i think we have our answer. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck swims water and sleeps with young children it's the toughest a pedophile duck. Even like on he did a sixty minutes interview back when these allegations came out and ninety two or whatever and in it he said this is ridiculous. I'm a fifty seven year old man. If i why would i decide. Now become a a molester. If i wanted to be there were plenty of opportunities for that. That's might as well be a confession. Who says that. Oh my god pedophile right. They all say the same thing. It's so obvious right. That's the thing yelling. You're gonna have to just that sorry guys. I'm calling well another thing. That's obvious is that you need a nice cozy bed to sleep in need fresh sheets. You need a great comforter which is probably looking. I need these. i haven't oh my god. This is me i need. I need this code. I need everything. I'm getting a new set. I have to have a new set of sheets. I say even unpack my bed yet in storage. So i don't know whether it's because people are starting to go out more and get the vaccine and stuff like that but i think they're starting to look at their house. Think oh crap.

That's brooklyn dot com promo code break in Okay next up I read this great article. Inbox about something i had never thought of. Which is that if you think about your cell phone you know it can see you know there's a lens on it and it can hear you. I know we know all too well But it can't smell and they're trying to teach phones how to smell now well. I shouldn't say no so fast because if it can be able to pick up in the same way it sees better than human i if it can smell better than the human knows it can detect those things like parkinson's exactly this is great for disease detection. Yep bring it on. And then i was just intriguing. Mike god this is so my mind goes a million places you can probably breathe into it and it would be able to diagnose like something that was in your saliva and like. Oh my maybe tell you if you can drive if you've been drinking or it could. There's so many things for it. I need to i mean like what do you mean that it can now and then i felt like it got clearer to me because they said that even though scientists kind of baffled by how we even smell and it's sort of a mystery in a lot of ways to scientists they can still create a thing that can detect molecules in the same way that your carbon monoxide detector can smell. Yes yes which. I never thought about like the fact that that is his smelling device. I never even thought about it like that too right. So that makes it adorable. Do you remember the smoke alarm commercial from the nineties. That was gilbert godfrey kids back gopher godfrey persian but change batteries or whatever like oh rate like their pulo mouth on it things in our house that actually smell and i never realized that. That's amazing. this is okay. This is really cool. So because this we've talked about on this podcast held the pandemic made us a covid. Made us explore scent and smell away. Yeah and if we haven't even been looking at that as something that is a j-. I dunno really helpful tool in a million different ways. Yeah there it just like birth to a whole new branch of like medical and like technology and like the link between at like all the and the connection between the two of them and it really makes my mind. Thank like this is. This is going to change a lot. I think this new focus on smell because it really does all we're doing is we're creating a sense sir. That something that read those molecules really simple and when you can have a database for what all those molecules are you can detect the same way. They detected the mold in the air in my apartment. This and then we're able to diagnose ran with a sinus infection that going on like you know this is. This is ben there and we're just like oh my gosh. This is really cool. I love it. I love it i look. I'm sure just like any technology. They're gonna be things that could be problematic like. They thought they said in the same way that we think our phones listened to us. If our phone knows what we smell like that it might start advertising. Who knows what to help us. With whatever smells we might be. Oh emitting or i think bad because know fear and those things have a different kind of sense smell so then they took advantage of that when you were in a weakened emotional state and advertise to you with stuff that maybe helped you in that moment. That's not fair. Yeah or cut you at a vulnerable whatever. Yeah you're basically being manipulated by advertising and and being pushed little. I don't think we need regulation to the weekend. Things for good not evil or the of the regulating. People aware of this or listening to our podcast. You know what. I don't think they are. Can you guys tell them. Can you guys tell them. Lordy of these regulating people. I mean truly. We need to keep certain people in In office in power because we need checks and balances bus. Science does cool stuff that i don't understand so three cheers for science Okay next up. I saw these pictures from creepy clown motel. And oh tell ya okay. I know you don't have a phobia of clowns creepiest. Fox's would you stay there. Though is no art. No no no. It's it's like my mom said. The energy gets a bunch of people who are freaked out there. I will go there and feel freaked out. Even if i'm not freaked out a clowns because it feels it like and if you guys have not gone to our patriot and seen my mom gives susie the full blown sake which i guarantee. She remembers none of what she said. Because that's what happens. When he'll i mean she says that. But you should definitely check that out. Because it's like it's fascinating. And i learned a bunch and i was like. Yeah because she talks a lot about that idea of energy and how you know if something bad happens that that can affect the space yes and. I think that i'm not really skeptical about that. Because everyone's had the experience of when someone walks into a room and can either like make really dark or light up the room so you know that's energy man way. Okay so the creepy clown motel in nevada The they advertise it as like each room has two or three clown paintings and that's and then it says like we do our best to you know. Meet your needs but what happens after dark. We can't control. it's out of hand. I do you think the alone on duty. No oh no they. Just say that to be funny. Yeah yeah do you think day. They're just like families they think it's funny or what. Who do you think no. It's the same people that tour you know what it is the same people who toured the spam museum of spam right ironic people yeah and novelty seekers. And maybe the occasional family who's like this looks fun and they're like the family who refused if you were like hey Like if you made a pop culture reference they wouldn't know what it is because maybe they don't have a television right like they don't get in on the joke there. That's on their instagram page. Like the people stay. There seem to be having a great time. Yeah for the record. I love spam. Yeah we're gonna save. Where is this museum. I think there is like a museum of spam somewhere and we should go well. That would be fun. i'm into it. I'm into all weird. Kitsch museums me too. Yeah way more than also regular museums. Because that's just like the colonizers like taking. Oh wow you've turned into a museum against well not all of them but the museums some of the museums that absolutely have like artifacts. They're like ooh look at this and it's just like that is something i meant to talk about. We will talk about that in upcoming episode. I have all the notes that never ever went down that road talk about the museum museum vacation. I can never say that word or whatever. It is of things yeah. I put a lot of museums on instagram. And i do notice that there's more talk about how they're trying to grow their collections to include more female and minority artists. But it does feel it's taking awhile. Yeah expensive but yeah they like. Where does the stuff come from. That are in the antique. What's not good stuff like pillage honcker. Yes bad news bears. Well was good.

Oh this is a tear jerker okay. Oh get your kleenex about birds in australia. That are endangered. and they. I don't know how they do not have mentors to teach them how to do the birdsong and so they can't find mates because they don't know how to sing the song. Oh sarah come on. That's sad i mean. Oh gosh there the song in their heart but they don't know how to sing it to they keep trying to copy like the other birds areas song that is they. We need to send in mentors recordings what they could do. Take pass recordings play. Pass recordings thought. Why isn't anyone. Why are they doing this now. We need the bird people to be listening to the show. Yes can you guys let them know. What is that. The birders know that we have a solution. Are we serious. Nobody thought of this. There's got to be i. They didn't include it in the article. Sorry dating but it says that it reminded this person that wrote the article that like humans the loss of cultural identity can have far ranging effects on your ability to persist so it's a reminder to savor and cherish your cultural identity because it it matters a mentor who can teach you that exactly so we can learn something from these porous birds. This is why we have to respect our elders and listen to grandparents and not just like you know shove them in homes and not talk to him sarah. What's the. I want to say that okay. But here's the thing with that. I agree with you. This is going to be suzy's unpopular opinion. I you're dying to go to one of those homes or what. no no. no. I just wish that like you know how there's cognitive decline as we age. I think it's like thirty five on becoming worse. And i wish that weren't true because all those blue zone places look at all those plays but there's still like losing their we just have to know they're not plans they're not. They suffer cognitive decline as all humans. Do well they do. But like yeah and like and not in the same way and in the same thing of like if you put them you know and i know they have like two people one you put an i one isolate and when you put in a group of five and you like have them be friends for like their whole life and all support each other like they do in japan when they get those friends who were assigned at birth. There's no way that they'll like even if i'm not making this. This is in fact. I'm sorry i offended. You know you well. Maybe a little not offended me just I got me wanting to ease your anxiety about right. I'm just future. You are okay. I will be your friend forever i do. I do take comfort knowing that like we started a pretty good level. You and i yeah so like even when we come dumb dumbs. It's still like all right aids. We'll be fine and we'll be like will be. We will have then matched the twelve piece puzzles. Be like right. Maybe lost a few pieces along the way what the images but way happier. The twelve piece. You're right you're right now. There we go see collapse pressure. In the best thing is you won't even care. But you won't even have that problem. You're fine sues pinky. Sarah okay next step. I wanted to ask you about this because it was about tattoo. Ink in european. How in europe in the us. There's different regularly s. So like i do. Because i have birds that are one color from the england and are not orange at all and then i have flames. That are still really orange. And i think that somewhere the red that they some pigment is not as different. There's definitely that. I don't know which one's better worse but an even with food. Like their mac. Their kraft mac and cheese has different ingredients than ours because they're not allowed to use those colors or whatever and so there are different regulations but with tattoo ink in the us. At least it is just the wild west. you know. people are quitting crap in there. And that's probably why it's still orange. I wonder though why you guys tattoo enthusiasts don't aren't concerned about that. Well now. I am and funny that you say this because i was a guest on a podcast this morning and was chatting about. She was asking if i had any like adulting. Regret like adult thing. Like like regrets kind of things. And i do have a few tattoos that i will say that now at my age i will say that was. I don't regret being tattooed. But i do have some that i regret and the now looking back. There's a lot of that whole tattoo experience. Where i'm like well. That wasn't safe. What you mean at the parlors or whatever. They're called a everything about like at the weather it was. It was definitely not like like every time i went. How this every time that i went to a actual tattoo parlor and it was very clean and safe and wonderful experience the time when i was underage and getting tattooed some dudes garage in venice. Not so much no. I wasn't so concerned about what was in the ink when i was kidding a tattoo in a dude's garage and fifteen in venice. Sarah louise i know i. I don't approve of my behavior either. Yeah i'm disappointed in you. I'm not mad. But i am disappointed in you. I know like. I know. I see what you're saying. The worst thing. I did when i was younger. Whatever well this one was just a skull and crossbones that. I drew on a napkin at one that afternoon. And i was like this. Look good. yeah that's it is it the case. Usually though that they want to drive dumb a it should be. If they're good. This is like early a good. I think i should all always when we talk about tattoos. I should always bring up the tattoo. My dad gave himself because it deserves repeating. Which is that. My dad gave himself a tattoo not unlike a criminal would do in prison and he decided to give himself his own name which is special level of narcissism that you would have to own name when your body and then you know. He wasn't very good. So it looked like it said p l l instead of p. a. u. l. And so then we just called him pal forever. Oh my god. I love it so much but how that story ends better this story. This is the best part. Because i i think of the story every time i saw it. You're right okay. So then he. He said he hated the dead to all of his life because he did it when he was thirteen and he decided a better option would be to get a limousine tattooed on his arm over his name and because he was a limo driver. It makes me think. How long was that. The end of that letter l. Maybe he meant to get like jokes was going work and then it was going to be a stretch limo. Oh god that's funny. Oh my god any huddles you have a photo of it. I'm gonna find one because you have come on. Every time i pass a limo to relive that and so like that story my mind. So i i giggle about that all the time. My dad kind of felt like driving the limo was the same as writing in it like he thought he was like vip even though he was just the hired help but bless him. Yeah and family was well done. I will say ugly anyway so it is weird though that like the fda will regulate you know you have to say what ingredients are in your cornflakes. But they're not saying you have to say what's in this inc that were shooting into our body. That's crazy that and freaks me out right quote. The coin is that in europe. They're banning these two colors green certain green in certain blue and the artists are mad about it and do frigging deal with it yet. Sort of like if they're worried at my car cancer or cause allergies or you know at a reaction then. Move on us a different. We'll we'll find a work around here there's other blues and greens.

One but I got another one done in england when i first moved there and this chick did not tell me until after the tattoo was done that it was her first tattoo. Ever on it sucked. I got do not okay. I that i ended up getting covered up because it's so bad but when did she tell you afterwards like right. Afterwards she said. I'm just like a printing and i've just been practicing on this and like i should have known it was like she didn't fall. It was so bad like the was like they were two cherries with a banner with my family's initials in it which is some dumb for me. I like cherries though. Did you get different ones. After did i know. Do i hear cherries on your by. I think i do. Oh my god. I have to do. I don't ever look at it. It's so stupid interesting. I have no idea what's on my arm. That's funny though how we often talk about. How the native americans didn't know the boat because they'd never seen before. This is sort of like that where it's like you see it so much that you're almost blind to it like your nose. Yes your nose is always in your vision but you have your is just get used to you. Don't see it but if you start to focus on it and say that it's in your vision. You'll be like oh fuck i can't. I'm sorry i'm doing this to you. I'm sorry i apologize. That i just did this to her. Listeners are looking at the tip of their nose. I can't stop doing it. I haven't had a nose ring so it really makes it stand out funny. So are the ones that i know that cherry ones that i've yes. Yes you different cherries after that. Yeah look it was a heavy rockabilly faces. No i love him rate. Yeah and flame. What the i so many things. I'm like wow. I don't mind being tattooed but these are definitely not the tattoos. I would have at least for most of them pro. Probably or like. I really like. Yeah i would do. Black and white duh. Why do you say because it like matches everything i wear. I feel like with everything. My god yeah i. I don't like wearing floral prints because it feels like where does it stop getting right. Yeah so you rarely find me in a floral print. Keep that in mind everybody yes And my mom always tries to like she's like an bless her soul and she is so sweet because she picked up his really to dress she was like. Oh my god i think it was look so grand unity. It's cute but it's like two two little girls look like flowers and the you know the color. So what do you think. Looks best looking at my tattoos right now. Mike which ones do i like. I would keep i like the waves. I'm keeping him fish keeping them. The ladies that was meat is trying to like say that. I was queer without saying i was clear. Okay i can. Now i can just say that you know and so they like like women And then yeah we're speaking The own symbol. I'll keep that one. I know you don't like the ones the revolvers no by and also i'm not a big fan. Well i like the message. But i got some text on my back and then i lost weight and now it all kind of like mushrooms together and it can only really read it. You look back. Yeah i have one in my pelvis area and it's like a teacup and they had to slice right through that tea cup to get lincoln out. That is so funny. May were upset. I remember they were like really worried about doing a good job with the incision which is nice. I didn't they just go. They could not go around it all got him thinking about. You've been cut open. Stop pass out and five days. Let's change subjects such. Let's talk about another animal thing. Which is that the they were talking in this article. Let's see where did i find this. The new yorker and it was about how animal population cycles vary by species. So like i don't really know what that means. But i guess they started talking about rabbits. And how you get a ton of rabbits and then you have almost no and then it corrects themselves. Yeah self-correcting systemically. If it goes too far in one direction go. Yup and i would imagine that there's a bigger swing for ones that produce more offspring right. Yeah that's i think why they started with them because everyone knows yeah can go the other direction for too long then. That throws everything else off snakes. Yeah so they were describing. How takeda's which. I don't remember ever seeing them in l. a. but they come here periodically and how the buck yet are they know this. I don't know but this is very appropriate. Because i happen to have. I have a picture of one that was dead on my porch. When i was in costa rica urges caught it in the video and now i will post that photo c. contents. We're living. But i always call them. Cicadas cicadas chiquita's. Sound more fun. I i have this having smi a lot where i read constantly so i know the word but i think i don't know how to say it so you're probably rights keta okay so anyway. Oh it isn't s. Yeah it's safe. Yeah yeah okay. yeah. I don't know yes noculars. Don't don't talk chillers. That's my favorite thing that you do okay so anyway. They evidently have a really cool cycle. That i like to imagine happened. Miraculously but really. It's just you know darwin's theory of evolution. Which is that the also miraculous than true and they tend to show certain varieties tend to only show up in prime number years. Oh cool provide. That is some cool Count you love it when it's like that's in the universe and music all like magic. It's so like fucking cool. Yes and you. Susan g komen partnered with the articles and the facts. Oh i'm sitting here talking about guys. Lay down bean dip people. I guess my name. Oh no this is blowing. Your co host doesn't so this is blowing my mind. Oh my god. It's like like the reminds me of the grasshoppers. You do the math and find out the temperature. oh o. no if you count. It's something about the chirps per minute. O number can tell you the temperature. What the oh my god. We don't know shane and we can't do it. Can you do. Can you chirp the temperature. Is golly barely so yes. Oh my god. That's so cool. They were saying that willie cool about it is that part of the reason this happens are likely the reason it happens is because let's say i don't know what eats a keta but whatever that is if their life cycle or their Population cycle is every five years. Then they won't get to eat the cicadas because they'll years have to line up so like office this kate or avoiding they're predators by doing my homework so cool i feel it. Could it be a bird. What oh yeah the audibly. The seems like birds would eat that. I'm just trying to think they're like flying around. And when they're they're they're everywhere they're gross and they like sorry they dive bombing to you when they run into your head. I don't have this things. I don't love it either. I do love the noise though. Remember when we were in nashville. Always dolly's mike mary. Yeah catos yes. That's true it was pretty cool. A certain level of darkness. It was like maybe maybe it feels. It feels it's like more exciting for me. Because i don't have that i did not grow up without your to me. It's like romantic and wonderful in. Like like i just imagined like like doing exactly what we did sitting on a porch in a rocking chair right. It was so cool. We literally did that. Oh god that was so fun. Yeah so this let me give you an example of the math if a cicada emerges every seventeen years and has a predator with a five year life cycle though only face peak predator population once every eighty five years vantage. Yeah there you go next time you see one. It's just. I just like a mad. I like anthropomorphized anything. So like i imagined like the process of learning it or they were like peeking out of their little and they're not this year guys market market on the counter. Don't go out there like a war. They come back in. Like four of them are like crawling across the finish. Line cry now. You're imagining talking to carbon monoxide detectors. Now shower will fine little fun fact. okay there wasn't. Let's just stay on the animal theme. There was an article in npr. That was Saying how goats and people make up their minds so is using goats as a way to illustrate how we to decide to do something and 'cause they observed. I don't know what you the collective noun for a group of goats is what is it heard. Probably something really funny. I'm gonna have to look this. They're all great. It's going to be something like yes. I was going to say. That collective noun for votes. Okay oh tribe a tribe of goats. They observed them and they were hypothesizing that there's like a dominant goat and then once that go decides to move to the next location does They found that that is not true. And they they said it was similar to humans where it doesn't actually have to be dominant goat that it's just like anybody that makes the move than everybody else just follows which humans yes. I was just having this conversation with somebody. And i reference you and the thing that happened with the soon nami warning in hawaii. Yes because if one of us a right run then maybe everybody would end up running. It wouldn't have to be the one we deemed most now dominant. Because we didn't do that. 'cause you assume maybe they have more information than you. Yes rusting but it also kind of just to me illustrated how stupid humans can be sometimes An how i guess. It's a function though of the fact that we are kind of meant to travel in groups. I almost see it is were designed to trust people. That's nice but that's yeah but like the goes both ways like if you if this is like the times if you didn't trust somebody It would be more dangerous for year. Survival which is why because like were part of a group. If you're trusting yes you have advantage of trusting and you have a disadvantage if you start dick skeptic so it would make sense that may be at the flip side of the coin is your too trusting in situations or maybe you should be a little more skeptical like Who's who's doing the because we can't take time to make that decision or brain can't maybe in the split second up got to get out of here all right. I am totally making it like i. This is just my against carry. What do i know but this show. What do we know what do i know. I bet that's taken break and is perfect. That's a good day go. Somebody should do that. Okay yes anyway. Let's wind it down. Yeah learned about goats we just now we just learned learned about nostalgia and how you know the nineties fund but sometimes we left up an suzy. Don't worry about aging in your brain. I'm worried year okay. It will all be fine. And so here's what i wanna know though. How old do you think you're gonna live til like eighty six. Sounds about right or ninety. Two somewhere between their eighty. Six or ninety two. Sounds about right to me. I think. I just said eighty six zero born. Oh that makes sense but that and just like slipped out of my mouth like that. But i think maybe ninety two sounds about right for me to okay. I know probably like right around. What do you think you. I definitely know. I'm gonna live to be old. I'm gonna go with that too. I know i've had that feeling like oh no. I'm not going anywhere. Because i'm going to be like the. I'm going to be like my grandma. I'm going to be like the old lady who's got a lot to say and you're not getting rid of me that easy. Yeah see and you're going to be my best friend so we're just going to be like and like that. That's what i'm thinking together. You're fine you got like come on but we'll be gonna we're gonna have a little kid energy. No we're not we're just gonna be kooky and wacky to upset you okay. We know that they're teaching our phones to smell. Which is i guess. Smell so cool in serenade spam museum but not motel not the creepy cloud motel. Oh my gosh. that's so funny. We love our wind downs. Yeah you can meet a wind down of a refresher course. More my quick. Did we talk about love. it Well in some people. Skip the wind down and i feel like they're missing out because we always add a little bit of new stuff in there and we do sometimes throw in the new thanks. Yup and then. Maybe we'll start talking about on this subject. I liked the other ward. The people that stick around but also like sometimes. I don't like to finish the very last few pages of a book if you don't want it to end so maybe people have that feeling but don't worry because we'll be back for episode five. Oh five again.

U.K. says Uber drivers are employees, and the future of cyber attacks

"The hi everyone. This is pivot from new york magazine. And the vox media podcast network. I'm cara swisher. And i am one split and away from cutting my own bangs. Care by the way is what you should say. Bank air on that head of yours. Have you seen my eyebrows in the mount hair. I have my ears. I'm going to start braiding the two together. Oh that's the guy you let me. Just tell you a handsome bald man stanley tucci. I was watching the cnn special wandering around here he is. He reminds me of you a little bit. Except he's light you look you don't look you. Don't move on each other tall skinny man of ballmer tracking my movement today. Let's listen before that. The reason i watched stanley to. Because i watched the dylan. Dylan farrow a documentary. Alan versus pharaoh. Go only have bald handsome fun for ten seconds to males documentary by the way everybody should watch. I can't even do it. I've seen it done. I haven't seen it and i've seen that this. This is devastating. I have to say in any case sisters. One of my favorite movies sisters gonna can't watch it anymore after seeing the don't watch the documentary. Then that's all. I have to say misdemeanors yeah. Crimes is way to get into this issue and not misdemeanors We had to watch. Stanley tucci afterwards. Because it was so heartbreaking and then we were happy because he was eating Seafood's do food right. Yeah just going from wine like there's like in florence there's holes in the wall. They hand you wine out of so very handsome a we'll probably be accused of cultural appropriation. or something. So touring around. Italy swishes italian to by the way very atone. I'm half italian. Italian cleaning product for full italian. My it kitchen crime we're born in my grandfather was born in a town called affiliate in italy. That's fascinating anyway back to me. So my statement one One was split on that split on away from doing my on Yeah banks that's a quote or that's a line from. Have you been watching wanda vision. Nobody shut you really should. It's really interesting. You're you're one of these marvel weirdos whole thing too much to get to my been watching my ten year old son and i'm not exaggerating. We stop. I do what i hate when other people do. I posit and i'm like what's going on here about what's going on here. I hate when people do that. Just watch 'em program. You're not supposed to understand it all even pausing it. We never watch tv together. We are you kidding. We watch tv together every week twice a week we talk to ourselves. That's true but i'm talking about like well. You and i are going to watch a movie together. That's we're gonna do we're gonna watch. Let me just say but anyways wanna vision. I think disney has kind of a second big hit on its hands so i think it's really it's really interesting. It's very different and there's a lot of really good actors much good tv cross tv too. I like being able to watch tv with. There's a ton of good television. There's nothing to be sad about it. There's so much going on vision. Watch it care. Well okay. I shall now enough for the tv recommendations big news today from the supreme court denied donald. Trump's bid to block new york's prosecutors from accessing his taxes. It's the al capone moment. Dominion voting systems is suing the my pillow guy which is a pleasure for more than one point. Three billion you know. I talked to the dominion sky systems voting. Ceo and he said he was gonna do this and then he did and now Merrick garland on. It's just not good moment for the trump people. Today is the bad trump time. But there's a. I think there's some in a little bit of this is aspirational or confirmation bias. But i think there really is a very strong sense of the immunities kicking. In and talking about unification. I don't think after something like this. You can unify. Until you hold people accountable. I think you have there. So i don't know i think i think there's a decent chance The former president is in real legal jeopardy with everyone is saying. Oh he's he's going to run for president. I don't know he's in real trouble. This one's bad. This one's bad tax fraud brought out the pound down al capone moment. It's an interesting question of whether he's gonna hear this week at cpac. I think today or tomorrow or something like that. So he's back blabbing away he's gonna do the same old act but your immunity archaea and by the way pfizer's covid vaccine stopped. Eighty nine point four percent of transmissions in israel. This is. this is the most important news story of year and and is so exciting. I've been thinking about this a lot because there is. There's a narrative that has developed amongst a college educated wealthy and middle class households. That okay so you know how eighty percent of people believe that. They're better than average drivers. All right okay. You're in the twenty percent of self-aware but essentially the majority of people have convinced themselves that okay. I'm in decent shape Take care of myself probably not going to get. But even if i did. And i know a bunch of people who've who have in and said oh it wasn't a big deal so and then they hear the the nonsense junk science that has amplified on facebook less so on google on youtube. I want to just give a shout out when i talk about my book. Post corona on youtube. They take it down. Because we don't want anyone talking about chronic and i respect that but anyways on facebook where they continue to spread or where or antitax content continues to run amok. And they have they have done a little a better anyways The bottom line is people have bought into this narrative that oh in a cost benefit tradeoff. I'm gonna wait. Because if i even if i get it it's probably not i'm probably point. Oh one percent fatality rate. I'm in that group and what this shows what this shows is the question you should be asking yourself is not. Are you worried about getting covid. The question you should be asking yourself. Are you worried about someone. You love getting cova if you are even if you talked yourself into believing you'll be fine doesn't matter you. You need to get this vaccine. this is about. This is about not being a fiber in the web of death that has been a snaring are most vulnerable. Eighty nine say some people think the admissions to negative and it's causing more of that anti backs to negative well. They're being like be careful. It's not working. We're still in trouble. I heard problem is. They've got to keep warning people not to want anyone to get relaxed relaxed and at the same time they want they encouraging it and they're making it possible one point seven million vaccines way above what they said they were going to do. So it's a real interesting question. I mean david lee fourteen something like fourteen. Fifteen percent of americans already been back at one point two million a day that that's the number. They're doing a day or week. I think a week sorry But one of the things. That's really interesting. Is that you found. She was on the thank. Keep your mask on you. Have to have mass. The two thousand two. And then you know they're saying things are getting better than the herd immunity getting closer at the thread. A needle thirty five percent people are immune because they had covid another's twelve to fourteen percent have had the vaccine so it's getting to the an eighty five percent. Anyway you do feel like today is a freezing in. Dc and the temperature's rising today and all this week it's going to be in the fifties and i have a feeling. I just. I can't take it anymore this winter and this comedy and everything else. I think people are at that moment. So they've got to keep control of the face masks and things like that at the same time feel hopefulness at least an and want to take the vaccine in order to move along faster. This is so exciting though. I if you if you think about it. It's not only know i mean my. My biggest fear has been My my kids grandparents. One of them is Immuno-compromised and i thought okay. This is how she dies. one of us gets it. We get a flu okay. We're fine a headache of flu. Whatever and then there's always a non zero probability be along holler. I know some young people who have contracted us in dealing with it. But the majority of the people i know have have gotten through it but then you give it to somebody. My friend's father A close friend. David lister father was a pediatric surgeon. Lived at fantastic life in passed away from this and probably had a few more good years so this is not only about again. The question isn't about. do you want to get code. But the question is do you want anyone. You love to get covid. And this shows this shows that the that the narcissist what i call playbook of well i'm gonna wait should doubt that doctors and hundred gatt in lock. It's so interesting. So there's there's a whole you know this who gets in line and stuff like that. I still obviously haven't gotten mine. Because i'm not a up yet but the idea of line waiting is really kind of. I think it's frustrating to a lot of people at the same time. You have to wait in line as i told you. I have some relatives that jumped on. And i just don't want to speak to them. I just don't now. And then other people are guilty because there was a friend of mine who was eligible for the line and was thinking about not taking it. It was i forget what why they were. Eligible was either a teacher or something that was totally legit whenever state their end but then they're like well. My grandfather hasn't gotten an. I'm like well you're in the line. Whatever the lions are yet it get it being fair take vacation to if you're a vaccine tourist or jump in the line unfairly you're an asshole take pictures and take pictures of you getting it to make people like you more comfortable with the number of people who claim they're gonna get it has gone up because what's happened is now that i don't know what was fifty. Five million people have received a vaccine. And there's been very very few. I mean like no instance. I mean this is like yards are not only great being eaten by shark or struck by lightning your tax seen struck by lightning shark speaking of immunities kicking him big stories. Uk's supreme court has ruled at uber. Drivers are not self employed. The ruling essentially means that the uk uber drivers need to be treated like employees and not gig workers that includes paid time off and minimum wage. Hooper share prices dipped in united states following the news. It's unclear how the uk ruling will affect uber's business model overall. We knew were listed. Shares in the united states in two thousand nineteen. It's filing the securities and exchange commission included the section on the risks if they would have to Classified drivers as employees in compensating them. So scott what is this like. Gdp are for for gig workers or not this. You know that was the law that changed things around privacy etc in in the us. Change globally. what do you think is going to happen. I think this is again. It goes back. I think this is directly related to the facebook Australia fight and i think the rest of the world. They're immunities are kicking and sooner because they don't they get all of the downside of big tech and a fraction of the upside and the notion that also reflects well in the uk where money hasn't perverted politics as much as it has in the us where proposition in the us. This is judges one hundred fifty million dollars to the ab five and then three million dollars against it guest guest which which which ballot which side one. But i think look. There's just no getting around it until we if we wanna wait for the government to catch up and have a new classification of worker fine but until then until then we wanna air on. The side billionaires have increased their wealth from one point nine trillion to fortunately in the last ten years minimum wage has exploded from seven twenty five to seven twenty five and yet we have a company. That's figured out a way to skirt. Even those minimum wage laws with software called uber called. Lift the gig. Economy is there's a cancerous part of it and if we're gonna air if we're gonna air maybe it's clumsy and maybe we need a new classification fine but the fact that we see that guy or gal turning on software to drive people in the bag might make at least minimum wage. I mean is that really a threat to capitalism. Is that really a threat to their business. I mean you know. I mean i think it has integrations throughout the like doordash to everything with the. There's a real struggle between things that consumers really like like fast delivery or cars on demand and stuff like that and what it actually costs and whenever when uber was initially when they were doing those four dollars across the city things. I don't remember when you take it and it would cost like six dollars a minute that i literally it was like i just made. It did not cost four dollars. It did not. It cost me four dollars but not society not the driver. This is just bullshit like someone somewhere is paying for my order that little dress from h m and decide how much that's costing we have this. We have fetishizes consumer in our society. We've decided whatever the consumer wants. Whatever the end-consumer wants that's how we should dictate antitrust law similize and it's like no. We have people who are thoughtful. Who will look at the supply chain look at emissions who will look at carbon who will look at child labor who will look at minimum wage loss and will step in when there's extra analogies that arise and unfortunately unfortunately big tack is very smart very very well resourced and steps in with charming individuals and lobbyists to to suppress those that that intervention called regulation around extra analyses. Capitalism capitalism is not an organic state. If it doesn't sit on a bed of empathy you end up as a central american nation with rich. Your follow them. Dave fetishizes and consumers added entity of empathy. Slept slept on edibles. And i think i'm still still tripping a little bit but essentially if we don't have people in all this bullshit narrative that oh you're against capitalism cat. The whole point of capitalism is we intervene to adjust around extra analyses. Huge extra analogy around a class of people called uber drivers and not all of them. I a large portion. Maybe even the majority of uber drivers may he talked to them like it. They say they like it. They provide flexibility. But there's a percentage of them that should be making more money and they should be passing those costs on the consumer even makes it a smaller business. Even if uber isn't worth more than ford and general motors. That's okay that's okay. That's our job to make sure that capitalism. We continue to do well by doing good. I'm still anyways kingdom. Save their clear holder uber. How would you play it. Play this situation of beds of empathy and fetishizes computer would get out ahead of it and you know dr koss shah should be credited with what was probably the most not gic and deft acquisition of last year. Their acquisition of the delivery company was postmates. Who did they learn. Plus yeah yeah so look. He has pivoted his business in diversified. It and said okay. Instead of the novel coronavirus taking wind out of myself. I'm going to put more wind in my sail. And he took a an inflated currency. In my view i think we brits dramatically overvalued and and use that when you're in a fully i guess they wouldn't be considered delivery. People really aren't thought of his employees. Are they like dat was a great move. So i think they probably one of the acquisitions if i were if i were dara i would try and get out ahead of it and i would say we're going to. I mean quite frankly he should pull a Brian i'm shareholder and say we're going to get out ahead of this. Yeah and position. Accompany company around there. There's a face the music issue on employees and a face music issue on advertising. And you know interesting corey doctor. Who had a really amazing thread on twitter. I recommend it. I was going to read the first part. There's an old irish joke. Whose punchline goes if you want get there. I wouldn't start from here. That's basically how. I feel about the so-called ustralian link tax and facebook's retaliation let's start with the fact that is not a link tax and then they talk about the arbitration and stuff like that they that they designed their system so publishers leak intelligence to them than they exploit the leakage to gouge the publishers further. It hurts advertisers readers and publishers. And it's a result of illegal collusive corrupt. Add technology duopoly And the existence of an advertising duopoly. Meanwhile as a result of lax anti-trust important forcement trek facebook and google were permitted to execute a long string of anti competitive mergers and acquisition producing the hyper concentrated marker market. We see today. The obvious remedy the situations to break up the monopolies. That is off the table for now. Forty years of neo-liberal orthodoxies monopolies are efficient breakup. Don't work so we're left yanking on other policy levers anyway. These are the two areas. I think this idea of owning owning markets and how to deal with employees. That are going to be the big ones for to deal with. There's an i think there's an investment strategy here for the first time my my investment advice for the last ten years has been. Don't buy anything. That's not an unregulated monopoly. Amazon apple facebook. There's to buy anything else. And i'm actually personally about to make to investments and i make usually one to two investments a year in. I think there is a a my big thing is dispersion but i also think the content and a healthier web ecosystem is a great place to invest right now because i think a lot of people including consumers their elected. Representatives have decided. Okay we need less toxic web. And also also i think a decent place to invest right now and i'll talk more about this once. The investments closed because i like to disclose content and news and local news are about to Have a have their day in the sun after getting the shit kicked out of them for the last one. I liked to hear about where you're going with this. Okay anyway. So what would you. Would you buy uber economy. And a not lying on a bed of empty. What would you what would you. I haven't looked at i. Just i look at the stock. And i think wow this is really fully valued i think dora is a really talented strategic executive And i think it was a great acquisition. I wouldn't wanna be on the side of a gig economy company that is still has employees working for less than minimum wage. I don't even if it's only ten percent of them. I just wanna add it to me. Feels really offensive. Minimum wages should be what they should be paying fifteen dollars an hour. would you buy over. I don't buy any of them. So i don't really have to worry about my You know i have. I have a very small foam agreed thing going on. So i know i should have taken that job at google and then i'm like oh those assholes that's what happens with all of them. I was offered jobs at all. And so i'm always like oh i really couldn't be unlike fiji right now. On my yada. Yada i could have happened offered jobs i would have been very wealthy and then it's not what you would do with your money. That's ridiculous right. I would attack. But in any case i every time i do that and i realized that i really was there and had the actually not just was there but have the offer and then i didn't take it and it's a dozen times i'm like i don't wanna work for those assholes like it's just kicks in my. I don't wanna work for. Those assholes is stronger than my greed and foam about money. I just can't just can't sustain interest in in any way i've plenty of money anyway.

Pro roth is the new york times cybersecurity reporter and the new york times bestselling author of this is how they tell me the world and it's about cybersecurity weapons weapons race. Essentially nicole welcome. Thanks for having me so you know one of the things. We talked before many times about this and you write a lot of stories that happens to talk about why you decided to write the book because we're in the middle of a huge attack the solar winds attack. We'll get to that in a minute and the role of Fire i and microsoft and this but talk to me about why you decided to write this book so the short answer is i had been covering these major attacks and i kept seeing my name in the footnotes of other people writing books and i just had to kind of give myself a pep talk and say you know these attacks better than anyone except for the people on the ground right about so. That's why i wrote the book. And i crammed everything and from the last seven to ten years of reporting and then i sent it in and then this giant solar once attack happened so in some ways it's the the pre to solar winds but why chose to focus specifically on the cyber weapons market is. I had seen over and over again. That regulation was not gonna get us out of this. you know. Businesses were just incentivized to get their product to market government was incentivized to keep a lot of the software vulnerable so they could preserve their espionage advantage and their battlefield. Preparations and as individuals security is so annoying. You know we don't like turning on two factor authentication. So i wanted to focus on the incentive models and see what the incentive structures were and how they could possibly pull us out of this. So you're saying that we are that they wanna get the software out to serve people who don't want to deal with issues of security and the government likes it the us government especially. Let's this sort of gray market Go on an attack. These these software programmes we all use every day. Yes and i had heard murmurings of this grey market but it still blew me away that the us government you know these agencies charged with keeping us safe were paying hackers some of them all over the world in europe and israel as young as sixteen or fifteen years old turnover of vulnerability in software that we all rely on. And then never tell a soul you know mock them up and nda's and increasingly classification levels and maybe that was okay. Two decades ago when russia was using one piece of software and we were using another. But we all use the same software. Now whether you know it or not we all use microsoft windows and so i was fascinated by this idea that our own government would preserve vulnerability in microsoft windows so it could spy on iran or so it could get into iran centrifuges and take them out one day and previously rolling. Yeah this is net and increasingly. We're rolling all that into our things an into our power grid and into our water treatment facilities and so it seemed like the stakes were getting higher and higher. No one even knew that. This secret market for vulnerabilities existed right. I'm asking more questions. Scuttled jump in solar winds. Explain it to people. This is the biggest tax that has happened on the united states government and companies yes so solar winds is probably the most pervasive attack. We've seen on our systems and we only learned about it. And this is the part i think really is key. We only learned about it. Not from our government not from the nsa not from cyber command. We've learned about it. Because fireeye security firm was itself hacked and unwinding. Its own attack. It realized that these hackers have come in through technology made by solar winds in american company that makes software that just allows it administrators to see. What's on their network and that software that visibility software was used by more than four hundred of the fortune. Five hundred and some of our most sensitive government agencies like the department of energy which oversees our nuclear labs treasury commerce st justice and homeland security very agency charged with keeping us safe. The problem is that they've been in our systems for so long. We think since at least march of two thousand twenty that they had a vast opportunities to plant more back doors in we're applications and it will be very long time before we uncover every single one of those. So essentially. what's happened here. Is the biden administration just inherited communication system. It cannot trust now. The good news is we think this was espionage. We think they were after emails. drought edgy planning documents. The bad news is russian actors. Not the one we think was was guilty here. The sp are but other. Russian actors have used this same technique for much darker purposes like wiping data paralyzing networks tax. Yes and in one case shutting off the power in ukraine and ukraine. All right scott so Had never really looked. I think that's fascinating. The companies and people are not only competing against bad actors or competing against the government. I had that's such a an interesting insight So so thank you for that. Th the question. I have is. Can you give us a state of play around competence. If you think of every nation state that has it sounds cyber warfare and cyber defense resources. Give us a sense for handicapped the league. Who's kind of best to worst among g. Twenty or non g twenty who. Who are the tom. Brady's and the people who just don't know what they're doing such a good question. So we i think remain the world's top cyber superpower what we did with stuxnet. Were us being the nsa and israel hacked into an iranian nuclear facility. Ten years ago jumped from the window systems into the industrial controls and spun those centrifuges in some cases so fast that it destroyed the uranium and in some cases slowed them down to a trickle and did it in a way that it looked like a natural accident. No one has ever come close to that. That is still to this day. Ten years later the most sophisticated cyber we've ever seen other countries who are capable of doing not include israel. Because we did it with them. And then i would say just below them. If not tied. Are russia china the united kingdom and maybe france or germany but then below. That is this huge wide gap. And then you have. The actors who really want to do harm were really want to exploit financial systems for profit like north korea and ten years ago. They were way behind us. They had the intent to do harm but they didn't have the capabilities and what this market has done. The one that i'm writing about about purchasing these capabilities from hackers these vulnerabilities and code that you can use for espionage but also destruction what that market has done. His closed this capability scott substantially so iran is not where the. Nsa is. What they've learned is they can do just as much damage with rudimentary code. Just wipe out the data at saudi aramco. Which they did a few years ago were they. Replaced it with an image of a burning american flat. And so it's the gap is closing. And the other thing i would say is yes. We are the most advanced cyber superpower but we are also among the most targeted nation states on earth because we have systems of most interest and we are the most vulnerable. Because we're the most wired and we don't seem to understand that this philosophy at facebook of move fast and break things you get as much out there as possible be first to market. It has really harmed us when it comes to security so we we have some work to do on fun defense but we are still way far ahead on offense. So offense alone doesn't work right so defense we you're essentially saying we're reason we're robbed is because that's where the money is. That's where it was ransomware attacks or if you're trying to do malevolent things like what happened in florida on a grid. 'cause there's all kinds of flavors of this. There's there's just money there's just espionage and then there's just wreaking havoc or trying like like misinformation which is a whole nother information and disinformation campaigns by the soviet union russia and others. How talk about defense because this is one of the issues. You and i have spoken about we. Just we have in the administration. There is now and neuberger who is leading leading the way in terms of dealing with this. But it's an on an emergency level and you know. I wrote a column recently about this which i also quoted you in Where you know they missed it. In the trump administration. I think one of them called me and said we didn't miss it. I go with you missed it like. I don't think you didn't miss it. I you know you maybe you knew about. It didn't tell anybody. I don't know but what how did that happen. How did our defenses fall so badly in this solution to do it on an emergency basis every time rather than have a central command like because there are so many different players paul nakasone. There's this there's this person this person. What do we have to do to have better defense. While it's a really good question with a really hard answer. i mean what. Russia did with solar winds as they got our number. They exploited are red tape brilliantly because what they did was they got into these into solar winds which is an american company software. They got into some clients through their software update mechanism but where they set up. Their command and control was a new jersey using servers from go daddy and from amazon. And that's where the nsa can't look no the nsa cannot look into these domestic systems. That's how we are. Set up sony a lot of ways. Russia just used our constitution against us like they have with misinformation and disinformation where they've used their first amendment against us so this is really hard problem to solve for one of the things that the trump administration did is. They rolled out this executive order which basically says companies like amazon and go. Daddy have to report which foreigners are registered under their systems In part because clearly we were blinded by this attack by russia. I don't know if that's going to be enough. And i don't know what the american tolerance is going any further. Especially after all the discussions. We had with snowden edward snowden the contractor leaked documents. So it's a really hard question solve war which is why in the book. i say. let's just start with baby steps here. Let's take inventory of what's in our systems. Let's know what software touches our systems. Let's know how much of it as american made. In the case of solar winds a lot of that software was built in places like belarus. Where we just don't have the same visibility or maybe the same level of security A lot of the victims didn't even know the used solar wind right a lot of the tools that make its way into software Wins is open source. Know these source protocols that are often just one dude sitting on his couch operating on a volunteer budget. So let zeke inventory of how much software is making its way into these critical and sensitive systems. And then let's talk about how to secure it whether it's making sure it has multi factor authentication making sure we're doing code. Audits and penetration tests making sure individuals understand that it should be mandatory to have to turn onto factor authentication authentication and to use different passwords. Because they're all gone. Just there's no point in even in some ways. Discussing the higher up thing was the one we can't even get the basics right and the basics would wipe out seventy percent of the threat it won't stop solar winds but it would get us to a much better place than we are right now. Where hospitals are getting ransomware. It all the time. Schools are getting locked up and taken off line. You know. everyone's using fishing for fraud scams and that kind of thing nicole the so. This is my team that everything is essentially a transfer of wealth from the port of the rich young to the old and too small and medium-sized businesses to large businesses. My understanding of espionage is that there's political ngo kind of geopolitical espionage and then there's corporate espionage which is basically china planning spies inside companies and saying. Hey send us the ip for this company and we're going to figure out a way to knock it off and and my understanding is that the resources allocated to corporate espionage has grown has exploded exponentially because money is very powerful in terms of geopolitical power. And when you see this when you see this ransomware at the end of the day have our. Isn't there an entire industrial complex dependent upon small and medium-sized businesses. Remaining to be vulnerable. Such big companies and big tech can cash register or ring. The register go public in. There's a disincentive to protect small and medium-sized businesses. Because this is an enormously lucrative industry for big tech. Yeah it's such a good question caryn. I talked about this before you know where this is. All going is mom and pop. Businesses small and medium size businesses. Do not have the resources to hire the top security engineers. The don't have the money to put in place. The intrusion detection tools and the network monitoring tools and all the fancy stuff you can buy from fire. I in crowd strike. So that's not the case. That amazon and google right most of their security teams. These days are like many intelligence agencies. There are an nsa cia australia. Uk analysts and operators in hackers. They have huge intelligence agencies within their businesses. Looking for the step which means you are better off as a medium small medium sized business in using amazon web services or google cloud than you are trying to manage all your data with some server in the back office and what that means is precisely what you just said. Scott which is the business is drifting to the big players because the small players. Just don't have the resources to protect. Their data and a lot of cases dot is why ransomware is hitting these small medium sized businesses and not just businesses municipalities small medium towns. That just oversee these tangled webs of outdated software and the don't monitor who's accessing y and he don't have two factor authentication on so there really ripe easy targets for ransomware want to talk specifically about a platform. And i want to tell you that. I will say i'm paranoid but that doesn't mean i'm wrong and you tell me if i've tinfoil hat on or there's any logic to to my fears here when i started being very openly critical on twitter of putin is finding that a lot of people came into my feed with a very basic scott. Love your work. It's always the same thing. Love your work but on this when you have it wrong and then slowly but surely and then when i also In the threat is internal started. Criticizing the septic tank which is the portfolio of some. Bc's in san francisco. All of these bots started showing up. Or if i say tesla is overvalued and my now. My feet is littered with accounts. Where if you save very very disparaging. Things seem in a methodical way to be attacking my credibility quite frankly and i click on them low follower count and can't find a person here. I'm a. I'm under the belief or the the notion that if i were in the gru that the most cost effective weapon would be to identify thousand ten thousand one hundred thousand people who were anti russia and just slowly but surely attack their credibility and so my question is is that going to the extent. I think it is and to. What do you think. I think twitter should have identity and I think this first amendment cloud cover bullshit that what about the the the journalists in the gulf reporting on human rights. And like you know what. I think we could probably figure that out to like. It's pretty easy to see when someone is reporting legitimate news. And when they aren't is the problem is absolutely out of control. Is i think it is specifically on twitter. And what do you believe should be done around identity or forcing identity on these platforms. Well one caveat. Here i would say is. There's a lot of enthusiastic tesla. Yeah i don't know if that's the russians. But i agree with you. I think twitter vastly underestimated what we call sophisticated chat bots these days. They're much more sophisticated than they weren't twenty sixteen. They recognize natural language and they can respond to natural language and they're taught to search for keywords. or you know tweets critical of putin and come after you. That is very very real. I have talked to former twitter. Security folks who say that is one of the reasons he quit because twitter was not adequate adequately addressing the problem. And you know they've come a long way but they're nowhere near where they need to be. Also i have the same problem. I've had things where said critical of russia or try to attribute a russian disinformation campaign. And next thing. I know people are tweeting out cartoons with my face on it walking into a gas chamber. I mean really heinous anti semitic stuff this big. I mean in some ways. Yes i agree with you. It's the same trait off that we always talk. You know. be careful what you wish for but guess my near my knee jerk reaction is. We need better identity on twitter. I don't see the same level of vitriol or botts or disinformation on link dent linked in one hundred percent. Yes an at driven models subscription identity. What do you know anyway. I'm sorry. I know it's it's i've just noticed it just with my book coming out. The conversations in are nuanced their pleasant. Their thought thought. Provoking quitter is so. Bob exactly and i don't you know but then i don't know what to do about the journalists in the middle east and how to solve for that but you know saudi arabia. We caught them planting spies at twitter literally planting employees atwitter. So they're working their way around it. Anyway you know also has a profit motive going. Yeah things people have said. Let's get rid of trending topics because that really drives on facebook groups and in facebook rules around groups which is the same thing all right one last question for you. This is how they tell me the world and how does the world and for us from a cyber. You had the worst case scenario for you. What is it while the worst case scenario is sort of where we already are. Oh dear are midnight i should. I should roll being more educated. A more credible. We have the same view of the world out to stylish glass half empty kind of guests on my sister rock. Yeah okay. Abbas no i mean. We are russia's in our government networks. They're in our grid. They've gotten into the power the power plants. We've seen them break into nuclear plants are hospitals are getting ransomware. China is making off with our intellectual property and our water treatment facilities are now getting hacked. The reason the worst case scenario is just one more minute away as because no one has actually used these axes to turn off the power yet. But it doesn't mean it's two clicks away so that's why you know this is how they told me the world ends. It's time to really wake up. Because what are we waiting for. Are we waiting for them to turn off our lights. Are we waiting for this geopolitical trigger. Do we want to do something right now. And i think the answer is we probably should start doing something right now. So ted cruz may be a victim kidding. He's not. Oh god i know. 'cause tech seems to be the weather in that case right. Yeah i mean how interesting i mean. I've been talking about what what would be the threat if the power got turned off for the drinking water supply was contaminated and it turns out it wasn't a cyber tacos. Just this underinvestment in winterizing. But yeah yeah yeah it would look yup one hundred percent anyway nicole. Thank you so much. Her book is this is how they tell me that it's so worth it reads like a thriller. They're going to be a movie. There's a tv show. i know that. Now there's a this'll be my a big announcement telling fx option that soon. Be a tv show. So who's gonna star is you. I don't think i'm gonna even even being it. Her lover jessica chastain. Oh yeah yes. She's in a lot of our right. Oh god call very impressive. Got lady terrible with a lot better hair in any case nicole. Thank you so much for coming you so fun talking you guys. That was cold pearl roth scott. I knew you would like her. She's a cyber william reporter. Back says my paranoia which allow great perfect all right. They are out to get you scott. They really are.

What do you have any. Do you have any of them. And them as i'm talking to you. Here's a fascinating win. This is not really winner of fail. I just discovered all these girls singers. I'm aware of selena gomez and the rest of them and britney spears etc and things like that but I'm thinking i'm trying to think about whether it's anything. Joe suwa who is this. The sheriff's use his on dance. Moms she wears a thing in her hair. A bottle of or herald time. She's really crazily a capitalistic. Something she selling shampoo and stuff like well she just came out as lesbian and and she's doing it with the same cheerleading enthusiasm. She does and selling shampoo her dancing or dances. And so i'm fascinated by her and i just think she's a win on some weird level because he's got my attention. I can't even have absolutely no comment on I know that well. She's in that genre. Britney spears but different yet. i'm sorry. Joe joe suwa and if you just ask them because w i s i w a. and recently a rapper attacked her. This guy not baby. The baby attacked with him in. He's had some line and one of his songs. That actor is just fascinating. I loved like all this pop stuff. I'm very interested in the pop. Step fail john. Cornyn just did it at the hearings from garland bringing up the steele dossier again. I mean honestly these people. It's like the sunset like the mix tapes of the right wing. Hillary's emails hunter biden the steele dossier like they gotta get a new act. And if trump comes back tomorrow doesn't have some new material. I think we need to move along. Okay thank you. what are yours So my win is The news around not only the news that eighty nine percent of people who are done. It was reduction of eighty nine percent of transmission. Wants you had the the vaccine was so that is incredibly That's just wonderful. News at further support plumbing to since people have been getting. That's that's my actual. Win is distinctive all the well documented and deserve. It problem warranted Deficiencies in how we've handled the novel. Coronavirus we are as a percentage of the population vaccinated The vaccinations as well or better than every nation in the world except for five better than canada better than japan. there's just a small number of nations including israel and the a few others that are doing a better job and a lot of it is a were. we have tremendous manufacturing capability pfizer. Modano are producing the vaccines here in the us. You do have to give operation warp speed and the previous administration some credit for committing a billion dollars so these companies so they bought a ton of vaccine early and then Our healthcare workers are frontline workers. So we are are win as we are. I know we're not getting ahead of this thing but we are vaccinating. At a great rate americans are embracing Their brothers and sisters and getting getting their brothers and sisters off this beach of death if you will So i think the vaccine roll out. Credit where credit's due is is is really starting to get momentum and i think according to a lot of people you're going to see You know the infrastructure every day not only loosely break it down in its vaccines and then the distribution system that actually inoculate or or vaccinate people. Each of those things is better every day. I'm gonna. I'm gonna stop you. Still see of five hundred thousand deaths we pass. I mean unnecessary the amount when you compare it. It's going to be looked at studied forever. Like who didn't get dry of the other countries like us to didn't die at the rates we did and so therefore either. We're a sickly group of people here realize eights or bunch of assholes. Like the answer's yes we are. I mean the reality is we are. We are overweight and we are abbott. I it wasn't it wasn't our it wasn't our physiology. That really hurt us. It was our arrogance and Anyway in our competence. But we've spent a lot of time talking about that. The vaccine rollout in america is on a relative basis Is actually going really well. That's my win. And then my fail is I think the continued war on the poor as evidence or manifested in. What's happening in texas with these utilities. That are demand priced and they sign up people. And there's there's instances where it's taken out of your checking account and they're senior citizens who've seen her electricity bill go to seventy five hundred dollars for a week. And what choice do you have. It's like well. I can either freeze to death as a seventy five year old retired cross car toys. And so you've had these seniors and low and middle income. People literally wiped out because in essentially i. It's just it's it's the same war in that is we want. We want to disparage government and infrastructure. Why because if you can't afford heat. But you're rich you can get heated by the ritz carlton and cocoon. You buy that heat right. So any a reduction in disparagement of government ted cruz reference for paying attention to pop in janki for that If you when you cut funding and granted. I actually think the crisis terrible thing to waste. I think i'm not in favor of getting giving states and local governments bailouts unless it goes directly to schools because i do think a lot of states including california including new york have to have some tough conversations with how they spend people specifically unions. I do think there just needs to be more efficiency. But but having said that generally when you disparage and under fun in start the screed against government and all that investments in public infrastructure. That really is just a transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich because poor people that need a train running every fifteen minutes to get to work. It's poor people. The need to know in middle income people that need to know that electricity isn't going to go to seventy five hundred dollars a week if crisis hits so they didn't cut the the numbers in new york. They haven't cut into transit which was interesting. I don't know if you saw that there was threats to the transit and then they didn't but that's good news luck lot across the country which is interesting. I do think there's going to be. I know you don't think it should go to state and federal to to deal with them and a lot of them have done a little better than they thought i think a lot of municipalities including dc dot. They had a much lesser tax base than they thought and now. They're getting a little bit then so they sort of had these drastic cut things scenarios and i know in dc. They think they have five hundred million more than thought they were going to have some number so fascinating it is interesting in manhattan new york tax. I think it's across several. I think it's in california. There's all kinds of things where it's not quite hitting the bottom line as much as they thought it would maybe over time. It certainly will. Maybe if they don't recover economically but one of the things you know. As i told you when i interviewed someone last week with this idea of cove learnings like what do we learn from this and i think this is going to be. One of the things is is if we really look. This is such an opportunity to look at every facet of society and understand the failures. Why they happen the way they did. What was the cause of them. I mean it'll be argued forever and use politically but rather than doing the reductive. Political thing is like trump who killed us or know biden. You saved us this kind of thing which they're going to do and that's fine. Whatever we have to really look at what actually happened. I'm excited to see you know what people like raj. Chetty come out with all these economists terms of what's going to what is going to do and then how it's going to change because things like telecommuting you can see there's going to be more of it right. There's obviously and it's been it even though we all hate zoom. I think there's going to continue to do it. Telehealth is another area. That i think is going to progress really fast. And then Tell the school is now in written a book on this on the winners and losers are thank you. Yeah post corona. And i think even more so studied the extra lesbian. Cheerleader just came out. That's what i want to talk about. It's just it's so confusing. I hate when lesbians fitting their presupposed genres really. Oh now i have to come up with another genre of lesbian stereotypes subaru. Did i had when i lost. I did i did. I did for years they did. Of course. I did children. But i know they're are people at the drako. I don't believe in. Stereotypes is just like it's such an interesting world now than it didn't used to be back. There's anyway you're both of those things so just angry and skirting the edge canceling I find the lesbians are much less harsh on me right. They don't care they're like they're like. Yeah whatever what come to our conference. That's right we'll beat you up. If we need it straight white women that have decided their outrage for everybody around anyway tech bras. Even don't like me lately. I can't remember that interesting interesting me. I can confirm that. It's not true but what you said before was really interesting. Do you know what the the tax revenue in. Dc new jersey state and new york state tax revenues up up. And that was such a shocker. Because all we hear about is wealthy people moving to take advantage to to realize their capital gain and have lower taxes on it. And i think it's gotta be a function of the stock market. I think it's gotta be the means. Taxes are getting from an explosion in the stock market. It'll be interesting. What will be interesting is what happens in twenty four to thirty six months when things normalized and the tax base because so much wealth is left these states. What happens then. That's when a fiscal. I should be interesting because right now. Suddenly i mean. I have this other house that i couldn't sell to bianco but i've got everybody wants to buy a house now like it's really interesting. There's this weird pent up demand for for things which will see where it goes. We'll see where it goes. Everyone does want to get out. You can feel it. You can feel it. You're going to have okay. We're going to have i'll of this river trillion dollars that has been spent in stimulus. We have hide hundred billion dollars in additional savings from families. Because you're not going to disneyworld or to Cipolla wherever you have a trillion dollars waiting on the sidelines you have so much so much. Emotion people waiting to get out it is going to be the roaring twenties for twenty four months. It's going to be it's going to be Sodom and gomorrah. I don't know what what you would call it vacation. It's gonna be so act control. Last night looked out there. I could go for christmas like somewhere. Great and i'm like i'm getting the where does where does i gotta be honest. I'm doing the same thing. Where does cara swisher wanna go. That she thinks is somewhere great. I love hawaii. I don't even just twice speaks to me. i love a white hawaii. i'm getting. i'm getting the big poll. Why speaks it doesn't take you another place. I love it there. I don't know what it is about that place somewhere like that for you. I just the minute i went there. I felt like i was home. Sounds crazy vegas strip clubs speak scott peering nightly in the big penthouse at the irs. I think italy. I wanna go back to la. Oh yeah well. What stanley tucci. Your d'appel ganger. That's right. i appreciate. You say that guy's handsome he is. He looks good. He wears a suit well. Everyone looks good in this thing. It makes you like long for european porn where they just sooner. Beautiful city is literally. That's exactly what is your view i've got. I've got a show for you. Oh we talked about Killing eve is total euro a city and they take fashion in that city and they just put it on display. Okay fine but this is just pure. Nice glass quixote. Let's go all right. This is such a nice feeling. Let's go to italy event in italy. I'm not actually. i'm not diamond. Spend more time with you. But i would like to get more manda better. So maybe send her. Stay home with the subaru and the kids. I want to take amanda. And the new one. I want to take your little. She's a cutie cutie. She's got a lot going on. I'm very excited at. That is a win for me. In two thousand twenty nineteen twenty one anyway scott. That's the show leeann happy. No look at that how we are here. We are trying to bring hope to the world. That's our job will be back on friday for more. There's a lot going on this week. We'll be back sort of slagging people as soon as possible by the way speaking of which we're gonna talk on thursday. I did an interview with sasha baron cohen yesterday online. You're kidding me. no ninety minutes. I don't think we'll use online sasha verizon. Oh it's so great. We're going to have our show late. Let me let me guess you on your other podcast. That guy is my fucking hero on sway. I you know. And he doesn't give any credit the twenty minutes talking. We'll get him now. He no literally my role mom. Well you're gonna love this interview. He went he. Ll be sure to tune in. Jesus christ all right enough of that. Sasha cohen august.

Wed. 3/4 - Laura Derns Goldfish Died

"Hey welcome to these lab. News ride home for Wednesday march fourth. Twenty twenty me. Well I'm just your host Kate Raft. You know one of my favorite things to do when I'm stressed is to just just nose dive into a mountain of celebrity gossip. Like if I just have a room in my house that was filled ceiling to floor with like you know tabloids from the late ninety s until now like Bat. I would scrooge mcduck like dive into that room. That would be my perfect life. Am I rambling now? All right. Let's get to today's topic's Okay F- enough of me rambling. Okay Courtney started opens up about being groomed to be a child bride. Mtv is saying Michel Barton is too boring to be on the next season of the hills. Laura dern Goldfish died tricia pay tosses quitting Youtube Ronan. Farrow spoke out about his father. Woody Allen's book deal with the same publisher that released his book and finally Harry Styles opened up about getting robbed at gunpoint. And we're GONNA listen to some of the clips of talking about it on Stern. Here's what you missed today in the world of Celebrity News. Just a heads up. This next topic is about sexual misconduct with a minor. Courtney Stott in is officially legally divorced from her ex husband Doug Hutchison. I like to call him. Doug welcome to this toilet called Tinseltown. Hutchison toilet called Tinseltown's commemorate the official legal divorced state with her ex. Who married her when she was only sixteen years old He was fifty must up anyway to commemorate the divorce. Courtney took to instagram. And she wrote an empowering essay alongside a photo of them from the day they got married which is just cringe photo because guys she's sixteen in it. That's anyway Courtney wrote quote. I look back at this picture and feel absolutely taken advantage of. I've been scared to even speak up about feeling groomed or being verbally abused during the almost ten year marriage because I was a child and he was fifty when we married. But I'm a woman now and it's time for me to put my big girl pants on and speak on this matter and quote God. That's so heartbreaking. I JUST. I can't believe her parents signed off on her getting married to a fifty year old when she was just sixteen that is truly one of the wildest most upsetting things. I ever had to wrap my brain around like I think about it a lot. I think about Courtney's audience parents a lot every day. I have an imaginary conversation in my head righteous. Go Up to Courtney's MOM Shakur and I'm like how dare you. Why did you do this? To Courtney Love Courtney starred in so much. It's like I feel very protective over her in her post. Courtney also teased that. She's GonNa be coming out with a book which I am definitely going to be. Reading are reported a few weeks ago that Doug also has his book coming out. That's where the toilet called. Tinseltown soundbite comes from because that was in the trailer for his dumb book. Welcome to this toilet called Tinseltown folks anyway. I do also want to read. Doug's book but I don't WanNa give him my money because I think he's a creep. It's GonNa be a tough decision. Maybe I'll try to get it for free somehow. Anyway Courtney closed out her instagram message. By addressing Doug directly she wrote quote and to Doug. I'll always love you yet. I'll always be angry. You've left me. A child. Woman Feeling belittled and confused these things I shall overcome. I wish you well but please don't ever do this to another minor again. It's not right even if apparent signs off. Wait a respectable amount of time before marrying children aren't on your level always love you regardless and quote devastating so Michelle Barton is not coming back for season. Two of the hills. Reality Show reboot because according to sources close to production. She's just like too boring. I think this is really funny. I mean it's good for Michel Barton because being too boring to be on a reality show is literally one of the vital signs of mental health. So it definitely bodes well for her. That she's too boring to be on the hills. I mean it's kind of sad for her bank account. I guess but it's good for general wellbeing like people. If you are trying to be a healthy person you should not go on a reality show. That's just my advice okay. Tmz covered this writing quote sources familiar with the production tell. Tmz Michel wasn't asked to come back for the new season of the hills new beginnings in fact. We're told she's the only one who isn't returning to reprise her role. Everyone else is slated to make a comeback and quote. Tmz continued saying quote the Rezende our sources say producers found misha's storyline a little bit bland and her personality a little boring bottom line. She wasn't bringing much drama to the show and quote also in the same article. Tmz mentioned that Brody Jenner got a raise and he's getting fifty thousand dollars an episode. What like that so much money brody. Who's your aged. And can they sign me? I promise my mental state coupled with crippling anxiety and insecurity is the perfect cocktail to become an MTV Reality Star. Colm My. Gm's are open. Hit me up. I can take Misha's spot. Laura durins goldfish died everybody. Laura dern Goldfish died and we have to take a moment of silence. Okay because Laura durins goldfish was fourteen years old. Fourteen years old a goldfish. I'm I'm I mean. That's that's devastating goldfish a goldfish living fourteen years. That's like that's like a human living a thousand years like it's impossible. I'm pretty sure it's never happened. I've done no research at all but I'm pretty sure Laura dern had the longest living goldfish and and we should all send her our condolences. Laura posted about the tragic loss on her instagram. She said quote. Rip To our amazing Goldfish. We loved so much fourteen years and quote rested Paradise Goldfish. I don't know your name. I don't know if you even had a name but you around for fourteen years and that is a long time okay. That's quite okay so I have no idea if this is real or not because it's about Tricia pay toss who I do not trust at all. But apparently famous youtubers Patricia Pay. Toss is quitting youtube. At least that's what some of the headlines are saying. Today she posted video about the whole thing. I'll play a little clip of it here. So first and foremost Quitting Youtube retiring from Youtube. Listen on metering on that I am quitting youtube and that is not really ally. It's Youtube is no longer might priority. So this is for the first time I've ever said that where. Youtube is not priority and it's for a multitude of reasons. I've always I will never stop doing youtube. And that has one hundred hundred truth. I like the platform. I like watching. You inspired videos like I'll do videos but I don't want to. I was stressing about. What am I gonNa do what? I'm going to make a half of course every single day like I was stressing about it definitely wasn't making. This was my lowest income. So there's definitely no money would've Asian as far as user wasn't really view motivation so basically. She's saying she's going to focus. More on Tick Tock into only fans because she makes more money from that and that she's still going to do youtube as a hobby but she's stopping posting everyday to her youtube channel. She also said she's going to focus on her podcast that she's been working on. I personally think that she'll probably go back on. Listen continue posting everyday to youtube at some point just because she does just say these big declared of things and then she will change her mind about them. Sometimes she just says things for clout like I said before I can't trust TRICIA pay toss. She does so many publicity stunts like remember that time. She married someone she was like. I'm getting married. And she posted all these teasers about her marriage and then she ended up like it was a wedding between her and a cardboard cutout of Brad. Pitt like this. Who were working with here. So take everything she says with a grain of salt anyway. If you're big TRICIA pay Toss Youtube Fan. This might be a hard day for you. I don't know I I don't know we all want to do the right thing. In Hebrew bodies healthy in the long run you know but even if we like sign up for the goop crews and we only eat moon juice and like we fill our bodies with like just a mound of Kale. That's probably not enough. You're probably not going to get all of the essential nutrients you need on a daily basis. Enter ritual rituals essentials have the nutrients most of us? Don't get enough of from food. All in their clean absorbable forms. No shady additives or ingredients. That can do more harm than good to your body. I definitely love taking my ritual vitamins. I take them every morning after my coffee and makes me feel like. I'm taking care of my body like I'm being responsible in an adult. It just makes me feel like I'm not such a trash can human being. It really does make me feel like I'm getting my life together. I love ritual because there are traceable and transparent if you're an obsessive label reader all originals vegan friendly sugar-free non GMO gluten free and allergen free ingredients and their sources are out there for the whole world to see. I'm talking transparency bay. Fill in the GOBS in your diet with essential for women. Better health doesn't happen overnight and right now rituals offering my listeners. Ten percent off during your first three months at ritual dot com slash celeb- that's a ritual dot com slash celeb- so on Valentine's Day. Harry styles got robbed at gunpoint and on Monday. He went on her Howard. Stern's show and finally got a chance to tell the whole story in his own words. I'm just going to play you some clips from the interview. Let's let's go through it really quick short cross the street and then they cross the street and I'm like sake this is bad and then across the street again and then they cross the street again. I'm like because I think that's corrupt so the guys like hey. Can we talk to you for a minute? And there's nobody around so I'm like is your heart pounding. Yeah Yeah. So I'm like sure and He's like do smoke weed and I said no and he goes. Do you want some weight? Thought now and then he was like well if you go on you and the old kind of gathered around me. This was something. I've been a little bit pissed off about is 'cause I've filed the police report. So then of course. It goes in the press and everything and they wrote. There was only one guy so I'd like to clarify. That was more than one guy. Everybody knows there was more than one guy. It wasn't just one guy. He was surrounded. That actually sounds insanely scary so the story starts escalating when one of the people robbing him asks him to pull out his phone. The guys like unlock you found and The other one like pulls his show up and he's got like a knife sticking in his in his pants and I'm kind of thinking like I said like I com. So Harry styles doesn't end up unlocking his phone. He manages to get away he just takes off running. I love the part of the interviewer. He talks about how he says. Usually when I'm out and I'm walking and wearing running shoes or like workout clothes. But he admitted that he was wearing corduroy flares and some nice shoes so when he had to run for his life he just like was in uncomfortable. Shoes while doing it honestly. This whole thing sounds so scary. I'm really glad that Harry styles is okay. I'd also love to see a picture of his corduroy flares outfit. It sounds really cute. Harry your heroes. Are you had to go through this on Valentine's Day of all days butts just a heads up? This next topic is about Woody Allen and all of that Woody Allen stuff that's going on okay so yesterday we talked about Woody Allen's upcoming book deal with Hatchets Grand Central Publishing and how Dylan Farrow spoke out against it and maintains that he sexually abused her when she was a child. Now Dylan's brother Ronan Farrow whose book catch and kill was released through the same publisher. Hatchet is speaking out as well. Ronin made his statement to the publisher via an email exchange with Michael Peach. Who's the Chief Executive Hatchet? The New York Times obtained those emails and publish them. Ronin wrote quote your policy if editorial independence among your imprint does not relieve you of your moral and professional obligations as the publisher of catch and kill and as the leader of a company being asked to assist in efforts by abusive men to whitewash. Their Crimes Ronin continued writing. Quote as you and I worked on catch and kill a book in part about the damage. Woody Allen did to my family. You were secretly planning to publish a book by the person who committed those acts of sexual abuse. Obviously I can't in good conscience work with you anymore. Imagine if this were your sister and quote the New York Times spoke with Mr Peachy. Pretty much defended their choice to publish. Woody's book. He said quote Grand Central Publishing believes strongly that. There's a large audience that wants to hear. The story of Woody Allen's life as told by Woody Allen himself that's what they've chosen to publish and quote the God all right. Well that's our episode. Thank you so much for tuning in to Celeb- news ride home. I've been your host Kate Raft. You can follow me at Cape Wrath on everything. Thanks to ride home media to my concerned engineer. Jack Allison involve the show at Celeb- ride home on instagram and twitter. Oh my God yesterday. My friend Chelsea Laura sent me a picture of Florence Pews Dad and he has the same face as her boyfriend. Zach braff and I can't unsee it. I can't stop thinking about it. My brain is just like stuck on the sloop. I'm just like this. One sentence is going over and over and in my mind and it's the sentences just. Florence Dad has the same face as Zach braff a truly terrifying and eight makes me upset. Florence. Pugh when are you going to leave him? When are you GonNa Leave Zach Bravo? It really vexes me. This whole thing vexes me anyway. Back tomorrow see you tomorrow. We've got a brand new show tomorrow. I'm going to try to find some zen when it comes to thoughts about Florence Pews.

Kinda Cute- Ep. 78- Martha Stewart is a Baddie and What Happened to A*Teens?

"It's kind of cute right. Hello and welcome back to cannon cute if you're new here welcome my name's billy and i'm your host and on kind of cute. We discussed articles from the cut. And my general pop culture musings. But i'm gonna be up front with you guys. We don't have a lot of articles state. we're delving into some other areas. But we'll get into that all in a moonshadow. Because i up we have to talk about the most unholy not q. Couple of our current time. I had all i have written in my notes is ski and lucy hale. I even have hail spelled. Wrong and kinsey is sitting by me and she sees that top note and she's like ski. All reckon lucy hale are dating. She's like he's not that cute. I mean she starts going off facile and she goes. He's in his fifties. He's she so much younger than him like he just date someone his age i mean and he's not even that cute and then like back in the early nineties when he was on things i mean he played really disgusting characters and i was like you know what can save for the podcast because agreed agreed. Agreed literally you spoke. Exactly what i was gonna say. Ski is fifty one lucius thirty one. We got a nice round twenty year. Difference different yes. That's actually i'm thirty. Two and my mom is fifty two. Which i mean my mom is like bomb like i love my mom. Yeah i mean. It's a little for gigi. I'm i don't like it and i saw this comet being like oh my god katy keene and f p joe which is just a larry's because i don't think anyone actually watched katy keene. Katy keene is in the riverdale universe and lucy hale plays katy keene and then ski. Orrick plays f jones. Which is jug had. Jones head in the riverdale series. Though sorry dad that i was thinking bug head you know so he. I don't know it's very you know. Enter enter cosmic riverdale relationship. And you probably might know. Lucy hill better as being aria and pretty little liars and ski. Alrich was in a lot of lake early nineties. He was in scream. I would say most of. I was kind of like his most famous role from back. Then and spoiler alert. He plays the serial killer in that. So that's why i do. Like his roles even suck he was yes and he plays a terrible person in the craft. Okay kids he very passionate about ski orrick. We're moving on we. We watched phero al in which is on. Hbo max of you had that in. It is the story of mia farrow. woody allen. Were famously together. They mia has shit sons against she had fourteen kids and one of her children that she biologically had was ronan. Farrow that is supposedly with woody. We've talked here. i'm convinced it was frank sinatra. Who's traffic was. She was married to at one time. And it's interesting because in this documentary. Series ronan farrow gives talking head interviews and mia farrow gives talking head area fees and. She has been really quiet in the press. Ever since all the allegations against woody allen came out. And if you need a refresher woody allen married one of me as adopted children and he was a father figure to her su ni and they're still together to this day but he she was way his you know he. He was way her senior thirty five years older. But the creepy part is that she was farrow's adopted daughter and mia farrow goes over to woody's house with day and sees pornographic naked pictures of suny and that had to go back to sunni and be like girl. We need to talk and then on top of that. a why. my wife. Blanking on her name dylan farrow. Who is a another adopted child of mea. Who woody allen took a liking to. She has alleged in this originally came out years ago. That woody allen abused her sexually. And this documentary has interviews from dylan. It's just so interesting if you have. Hbo max. I've only watched the first episode. I'm not even sure of the second one's out yet but very fascinating. And he's just so disgusting like i just remember. When that news came out years ago. I want to say i was in law school. When i realized the dylan farrow stuff. And i was just like how is he still making movies. How is it. Selena gomez and timmy. Shaw may were just in a woody allen. I don't get it. I wanted to make direction from last week. Because when was originally talking about machine gun kelly wearing megan fox's blood i referred to make fox's angelina jolie because obviously i had her on the mind because i was transitioning into how her billy bob did a similar thing so case anyone was very confused by that story i misspoke machine gun. Kelly's angelina jolie are not dating. He is dating mega. Vox wearing megan. Fox's blood just to clear that up. One of my friends wrote me when i was talking about if there is. Tv shows that made you nostalgic for a timer. Just like make you think of a certain time when i was talking about. How full house brought me back to like being depressed in my early lawyer years which hasn't changed much. But you know. And she wrote house she. After break-up watch the full seasons like all of the tutors and now she like even a look at that that tv show anymore. And i was like honestly like getting to look at jonathan. How you say his name. Jonathan rice myers. Reese reese myers and henry cavill give yourself some ike candy so i don't know if anyone else relieves that and i actually say that because i just want you guys to talk to me more i feel sometimes like i'm just talking into an echo chamber of just my own thoughts and i'm really not scary. I promise you can reach out to me. I know. I know people listen to this. I can see the listens guys. You don't have to be shy reach out. tell me what you're thinking about. Tell me what you want me to talk about. You can follow my youtube azalea. And you can follow me on instagram bailey. Evan or it kinda cute podcast you can see 'em me you can email me. There's so many ways to get in touch with me. And i would love to hear from you. I also wanted to talk about last week. How when we when we talked about the grinch like people wanting to have sex with the grinch. I literally like lost my shit at the end of that. I don't know if it was obvious. But kenzi said pussy. And then i just like couldn't continue with my actual analytical thoughts about why people want to hook up with the grinch and i think that ship has sailed and there's no reason for me to talk about it now but it really just derailed. The rest of my podcasts. Like talking about fuller house. And i was like wanting to segue from talking about the olsen twins to talking about elizabeth olsen who stars in wanda vision which i really have been loving and all of my thought process went out the window at the soon of busey. Apologize so anyways. This is a long way of saying watch wanda vision. I'm really into if you want to discuss that. I'm available like i said we're going to start out with some nine cut. Articles and the martha stewart harpers. Bizarre article was a request from burge. So again if you have something you wanna talk about. Get at me. But first we're going to talk about k. J. apple talks to demi moore about breaking free from archie by demi moore herself this felt fitting since we just talked about the riverdale universe and skied orig so caja. Appa plays archie and the riverdale series. He's the redhead. you've probably seen him around even if you haven't seen riverdale. Maybe you had a similar reaction. When i just told you that demi moore was interviewing k. J. because i read that. And i was just like why i could not get my head. Around why bruce willis's ex wife mother of rumor data of ashton kutcher not to trivialize her to those things. It's just she's a bad ass. Like i say those badges of honor you know. And i was like what the hell is to me doing. Interviewing k j. She's just so above that but apparently they were in a movie together called songbird that was filmed at the beginning of one of the first things to be filmed while the pandemic was still happening. So i think it was pretty early on in it. And the article begins with these very up-close photos of k j. demolishing a piece of gum in his mouth and blowing bubbles while wearing a balenciaga sweater. Naturally and they're the things he is doing to that gum and then before the interview. That demi deserves elite in and it says that cage has become one of the most identical faces and heads. in hollywood. i find this to be wildly debatable and laughable. And i'm pretty sure if i asked dad who oppa is he would have no idea and i use him to gauge these sort of things because he's notoriously face blind and oblivious even though he likes to think he's like up with the culture he i almost want to call him and ask him if he knows who k. J. app is should we do. That can let. Let's get him on the phone. All right. i'll keep you updated on what he says. So they start out the interview and they're talking about filming during the pandemic and how they kind of felt like guinea pigs and then k. j. says. I felt so free coming from a show where i feel like i'm in jail a lot of the time. There are so many restrictions on what can and can't do with this character. It was like wow. This is what it's like to really express myself in a natural way. I wasn't covered in makeup or hair. Products had long hair and a beard. I just felt free okay. What is up with celebrities comparing things to jail. Did he not learn anything from ellen when she compared you know staying inside during the pandemic and her multimillion dollar mansion to jail. I mean it just comes off a little tone deaf. I get the hell that is probably dying his hair orange and why couldn't give this poor man. A wig is beyond me. Grows really fast and his hairs like black. Yeah and you know what they did that. Same shit ariana grande dame and. She had to wear her hair and that tight ponytail from all that damage for so long because of that red hair. They made her when she played. Cat on. victoria's so you know what hollywood can we start doing that. These poor celebs who feel like they're in jail and you know he gets a little woe is me in this piece because he's talking about basically how the fans get crazy and he says he tries to look at it from a fan's perspective to understand the way they think but then he says there's times where he's like. Wow they really have no idea that we are actual people. They can't separate us from our characters. And while i do sympathize obviously with celebrities. And what comes with this kind of feverish fan culture that attached to it. I'm kind of like come on k. J. you're also talking to jimmy who i'm like. Do you think she's sympathetic to you and to to answer my question from earlier. My dad promptly texted back and said no and neither does mom and my mother is much more pop culture aware so again. I think we're being a little generous. And saying that. K abbas like the king of hollywood but i do think it's interesting that he started riverdale when he was only eighteen. I didn't know he was that young two years younger than i am. I think and he hadn't even had a drink yet. Which i think is pretty adorable. So the favorite part of the article for me came at the end and he says what would you be afraid for me to know about you. And he says that. Even though i'm proud of the decisions i've made i do struggle. Sometimes i find myself struggling to be alone with myself. And she says that's a beautiful answer. If you really knew me the real to me you would know that. I'm afraid i'm not good enough and caja says and what would you be afraid of me knowing. And she says that. I like toys and oversize items in cagey says. Oh my god no seriously. I have a collection of normal items that are and i'm never without a toy of some kind in my purse. The reason is when. I look at my person's weird miniature toy or stuffed animal i remember not to take life too seriously and then j. says if that's something that keeps us smile on your face then that's fucking amazing. I mean i'm a little irritated with this. Because she elaborates unlike the toys in her purse. And i get that and you know keeping things light not taking things too seriously but i need to know more about the oversize items like she talking about. She goes to costco and gets a big thing. Cheese balls like what. What do you think she's referring to her of liking miniatures yet oversized up. I mean she probably has a huge house she came it all but i just i don't get it and at this point in the article as it comes to close your left. Lissome chilling pictures of k. J. and particularly it's one of him doing the taylor swift heart hands you. She used to really be big doing that back in the day. Where she put her hands together in the shape of a heart except she would hold them up in the air but k j held his around his nipple with his shirt filled up pulled up. So that's the final picture of that article the end but speaking of taylor swift. I have to tell you guys about this story. You may have seen the headlines about this. This theme park amusement park in utah. It's called evermore. And they sued taylor swift for trademark infringement. Over her most recent album that was obviously called album evermore but now the company that handles the rights for her music and her trademarks filed a countersuit against the park. And they're saying will screw you guys. Because you're using taylor swift's music on the grounds without authorization or license agreement. So i just can't imagine being on taylor swift's legal team or dealing with her trademarks. I i'm scared to even look up her trademarks. Because you know you can publicly search trademarks. I bet she holds so many. I don't even cashew. She's very Aware wear protective of her intellectual property. That's why she will notoriously go after like small shopowners who use her intellectual property. And i do understand it. Was someone like her because it becomes as really slippery slope. Where if you don't protect your intellectual property you can lose it and clearly. Her intellectual property is sort of the basis of everything. She does it so carefully crafted and i just think this is a total fuck you though they're like you wanna come at us and tried to sue us like we will show you and that seems to be how her team operates. I don't even know why evermore would would push this thing but you guys you have to look up this ever-more the park. It's like a ren faire made into a theme park and so it wouldn't be utah. Mormons gotta have something can do just that would be in utah so described as an immersive experience theme park in pleasant grove utah and it doesn't have rights but instead trained actors portray fantasy characters and they walk around and you interact with them. So it's like alarming in real life but look it has four point five stars out of two thousand and forty eight. Google reviews kind of cool. Them that i mean. It looks like they have a of kind of cool like light shows and sculptures and stuff and it looks like it must be pretty cool at christmas because they have carolers and stuff like that i mean i do kinda wanna go now and i have to give it to evermore. They would be better off. They would be better off just dropping their suit and and somehow settling or dropping the the the suit settling so that the countersue by taylor can't succeed But yes the theme is list as medieval fantasy. They have a registered trademark. On ever more so i actually get or at least it's listed like that on their on their name so i get why they were trying to protect their intellectual property as well disney though because in beauty and the beast they have dan. Stevens sings evermore. Which is the one of the other. That was one of the new songs that alan main can made for the bible. I think probably the difference was dizzy. Didn't try to trademark that. Whereas taylor swift was trying to trademark her album anyways. I just thought that was a fun story. Let's get onto my favorite story of the day though and this is martha store is the original influenced by jada why it's why you a. n. And just as a reminder you martha stewart is seventy nine years old like. She comes correct with that face with the looks. Every picture in this in. This article is so beautiful. I love the clothing. I love the jewelry. She's dripping and some van cleef stunning makeup blessed and it opens talking about how after the big blizzard. She got out there on. Her snowplow was plowing that snow. And she said oh. I love to snow plow. I was out there actually for three hours before. I realized it was three hours and i was semi frozen to that but it was fun. Honestly i've never ridden. A snowplow does sound kind of fun like no no. I mean it's like no one wants to shovel snow but like a plow. Sounds kind of fun. She also mentioned that. She sometimes runs into ralph lauren. While they're both out horseback riding and i mean honestly if i could think of my ideal situation it wouldn't be running into ralph lauren but it would be running into martha stewart while horseback riding. I had this fantasy of horseback riding on the beach. I was like. I need to roll back for a second. I was an aspiring horse girl. As a young person when i was five years old and i lived in england. I rode an english saddle. I had a crop. I had that cute little black hat. I had the pants. I had the boots. I mean it was a luke right. Let's hell eq- yeah. And i loved riding horses and it was a very short letaba because Chris bike riding is a boozy expensive You know pastime. And i did that with my grandparents and my parents were poor so it wasn't happening for me but to this day i've asked for like so many years on my birthday to go horseback riding on the beach and it's all i want and i still. I know it'll happen for me eventually but this just really took me that fantasy land like just me like a bareback gallivanting through a field and running into martha story and you know in some reality. I think that could happen for me. Unfortunately martha is seventy nine. So i'm really going to have to manifest some shit quick. Because i don't have many years unless you know her. She's probably she's looking really good and i wouldn't pass. Put it past her to be getting like cutting edge stem cell injections to keep the cells young. So i'm hopeful. But i am so even more delighted. I thought that was going to be the high point of this article by guys. It gets so much better. The next part is my favorite. Because apparently tiffany haddish and martha talk on the rag. Tiffany haddish is a very famous comedian. She became really. I think kind of break out when she was on girl strip with jada pinkett and queen latifah. Ray this is what tiffany says. i love me some martha. She smoke weed drink wine and speak her truth and tiffany says that she grew up watching it on. Tv with her grandmother and that she met her a few years ago and she promptly asked her what it was like in jail. Which i love when people just come out of the gate like that hit him up with a hard hitting questions right away because honestly like that's what i would want to know too as martha. She says later on this article. She doesn't actually really like talking about her experience in jail while she is thankful for the strength gave her and kind of it was almost as sort of a blocked. The things that came afterwards. But she doesn't talking about the actual experience so knowing that if i do run into her on horseback i won't ask her so don't worry kinsey. So apparently haddish on everything from day trips and gardening to how to create generational wealth and guys this tien because her advice. Trademark your name so anyone out there. Get your dough. I haven't but i do own bailey. Evan and bailey for dot com so and then for negotiating a deal. Martha's advice was be prepared to away and tiffany says like i know visually shoes a white woman but she's just a woman who has a lot of life experience and she's not stingy with knowledge and i think martha not being stingy with her knowledge is sort of why she is the original influence our in house. She created this empire that she has is because back in the day she was telling everyone how to do things and make them pretty and make them nice and she shared her knowledge at a time when it was sort of internet. Pre sharing of what is going on in your brain like. It's so normal now to do that but back then i think it was. Yeah it was like being a blogger before blogging existed but apparently at martha does not smoke weed. Even though that is a perception that people have because she's close friends with snoop dogg and snoop inspired her to make her cbd line and he actually set her up with a canadian company that she partnered with for it. Now this next part guys. We're getting into an area of this article where there is a lot to unpack so martha thought. She was going to become an architect but then with her father in law's encouragement she spent seven years as a stockbroker on wall street and she was the only woman at her firm. She was surrounded by men under the age of thirty and she says we were the real thing you saw the movie wall street. I lived it. I mean every man on wall street was trying to get you. Every man was trying to touch you in the cab. We had martinis for lunch. I know she mentions wall street. But i immediately it was like wolf of wall street and just imagine like people trying to do cocaine off. Martha's booty and i know she wouldn't let that fly but the image definitely popped in for a second and she says that one broker she knew locked women in his apartment for kinky reasons. Apparently that is like the kim basinger erotic thriller nine and a half weeks. I can't say i've seen that one. And she says. I was a modest girl. I did not fuck around. If you wanna use that word. I mean good to know. I had to say again. I was kinda curious because martha was also a model and not to say models. Fuck around but i'm sure you know she obviously had the option and then she says to the beer do you remember hot pants and the authors sort of and she says you're too young you don't know anything. She explains them as a little tiny shirt. Shorts plenty of leg and a little bit of your butt. And then she goes on to say. She had two pairs one in velvet. Oh no i'm sorry. They were both all was dark. Brown one was a peachy shade and she'd wear it with an alligator bell and a tight sweater. Tuck dead and she says. I looked great in. We would sit with our feet up on our desks. And i had high heeled shoes on our boots. And that's what we were to work. I mean that fucking image guys. Don't these images just keep getting better. I like want to recreate that. I'm in no way putting hot pants on my body ever not a look for me but like love. This love this for martha and she also mentioned that. She's known almost every single one of the famous guys that have been accused in the metoo movement and she says somewhere certainly guilty of a lot. What was accused but some were. It's just they're awful personalities. And i was like that's an interesting statement like she's saying they weren't guilty of abuse but they were just awful people or she saying they were guilty of it and they are also awful people. I don't know that statement. I was kinda leonard unpack that a little bit. But anyway she eventually quits her wall street job and she starts catering and she describes that as the hardest job ever and i can see why catering would be so hard like thinking of that. I mean imagine just trying to make a dinner party like that's too much for me to handle and we're talking about how in shows everyone is having dinner parties and i know that as a thing because i read about it in magazines and stuff but like a someone who i feel like throwing a dinner party would be right on my alley. I've never done it. Mine usually involve a shit ton of tequila and a past app except the sorry past. They're just on my kitchen counter like accurate And then it mentions that her husband remarried and it was actually to someone who worked as her consultant. Worked as martha's console. And i was like. Oh that's shady like she's swooped in and took that husband and then this part guys this also blew my mind so she launched a line of towels and linens with k. mart. And she did that back in nineteen ninety seven and apparently it was controversial. Got her disinvited from connecticut country club and she says it was because she was too downmarket. I mean the audacity uninviting martha stewart from your country club because she has a line with k. mart. Which is i mean at. The time was like a powerhouse on walmart's level in my mind. I don't know and it's so close so awful so then snoop pivoting to sir you know. Pass with jail and insider training snoop on his instagram. As we washed takashi six nine or whatever. His name is snitch on everybody. I invite you all to remember. Martha stewart stitched on not soul during her trial. Baby curl kept it. Ten does down and eight that prison sentence by herself. Like the true batty she is he then concluded with a caption reading. That's my m. f. Girl solid as a rock. Rotc i mean. I also love snoop dogg so many times. That's one of my favorite cap. It's amazing we love supportive friend. And i love the. He is fine that she doesn't smoke the weed. He's fine with her just dabbling in the cbd's not trying to press anything on her and then near the end of the articles she says. My only regret that i can talk about. Is that saturday night. Live asked me to host. My probation officer wouldn't give me the time. That really pissed me off because i would have loved to have hosted saturday night live. I love that on my resume. And if martha doesn't host this season guys. I will be so pissed like lauren michaels. You were doing everything absolutely wrong. If you don't get martha stewart to host. The article reminded me that martha stewart participated in the roast of justin bieber. Like if she can do that she can host snl. I have complete faith. I know she can be a little rigid. But i mean she's talking about her frequent hot pants and her boots on the desk. The girl can host saturday night. Live okay so lorne. If you're listening please give her the chance. I told you guys. I know. I've said on here that one time where i was at like drinking margaritas. At molly's in my college town and lorne michaels walked past. And i stood up. Put my face against the window as its lorne. Michaels obviously couldn't hear me and he was there because his kid was like a year behind me in school. But i mean i. I don't even know what. I would have said to him. But i was like panting out that window legged dog anyways moving on the next the i can i. Can i be up front. I i usually have a glass of wine or two before. Enduring hosting this podcast. I have had a enter reckoning. As of late. I've just decided i really want to start drinking less and i really never again in my life wanted to binge drink and that's me is more than four drinks. I really don't want to have more than two drinks. And i never want to have four drinks again. We'll see how long that stands. But i was realizing that it was just really affecting my mental health for a few days after when i would shrink it was just this really bad cycle and it wasn't like i was doing it all the time but it's just not worth really ever doing it unless i really celebrating. If i get martha stewart on this podcast less go less go. Boo boo Tendering but until that day. I just don't think it's necessary. So i am actually recording this podcast completely sober and yet. I still seem to be struggling with my words. I keep misstating stuff things keeping on the tip of my brain. So i don't know maybe the glass of wine really does help with the inhibitions and helps me have a a lubricated mouth of flow. You can live here so lubricated mouth of never seen an okay so this. My dears is the first cut article of the day. Sweetie on wigs. Early thousands and personal style by daniel james in it starts off by saying that both her music and her style sweetie has become known for an uncanny ability to make nostalgia feel modern and her songs that means laying versus over early. Two thousand beats like kia's my neck my back into shorts. Blow the whistle. I my neck my back really define being in college in like the two thousand eleven era the two thousand. No two thousand seven like i. You couldn't put that song on and not have every girl in the room singing those raunchy ass lyrics. Let's put a little clip here. This arrondissements this like monday. My bag and it goes on to talk about the fashion in the song. Best friend with doja cat and guys that music video yet. I think it might be my new best most favorite music video. It's starts out with this guy like kind of manslaughter into doja and sweetie and simultaneously hitting on them and it's showing their internal monologue and they're just like okay. This guy is so misogynistic like get him away from me. I just wanna hang out with my best friend. And then it goes onto them having the most insane. Fashion changes the best nails the best way eggs. It is flawless from top to bottom. And even better than that it is a song about female friendships in gassing up your female friends and we don't have enough of that every time. There is a good friendship song. I'm like why are they not just pumping these out there. Amazing would call back. That's not best friends. I loved it because sweetie says she was partly inspired expired by the viral tiktok video. Where a man says. I ain't never seen to pretty best friends. It's always one of them. Got to be ugly. I never seen pretty best. Friends is always one of them. Got to be ugly so people then we're using the sound and showing themselves with their beautiful best friends and this is so false and this is a technique that people use on tiktok men especially where it'd be like. Oh i've never seen like a hot this or that. And i think it's just a ploy so they can get these hot girls like do wedding their sound and making a blow up and it's not because they actually think that but and she says she wanted to challenge the notion that female friendship is always marked by rivalry. I think it's important to show girls how we can have fun and uplift one and other because there's no girl code and we need to start creating one she says and i just i just loved it and then she talks about her favorite one being she says. I love a baldy bad bitch. And she's not actually bald but she has like a pretty close buzz cut in that one scene in its multicolor. It looks really cool. And she says. I've always wanted to cut all my hair off. I wanted to see what it looked like. I feel like when there's a pattern in something. I say what can sweetie do different really. It all depends on her moods. She says i stress my hair styles night before. I'll give what i want. And then the morning. I'll be in a different mood. It really just comes down to how i'm feeling and this reminded me and we were talking about britney spears tiffany haddish in like the freedom and having a bald head and i was just like oh interesting. Another person's giving that perspective on it okay. Our last cut article of the day. Wait is mr potato head going. Gender-neutral are not by amanda arnold. I had to include this. Just because it's absurd. Not the fact that mr potato head was potentially going gender-neutral. Just the course that this story took and i loved the start of this article. Man article is one of my favorite writers. I think i hear in san jada there. My girls she says any day you decide to spend online. You're putting yourself. At risk of absorbed in some unhinged me stromer that will go on to occupy precious space in your brain and distract you from your actual responsibilities. Like i literally wanna put that on march kinda cute and just say kinda cute will put you at risk of being absorbed and unhinged east drama. Yada yada got like i think. That's that's exactly what i want this podcast to do for you. So what happened was there. Was this interview with fast company. A hasbro exotic who works on the potato head brand. She said quote culture has evolved. Kids wants to be able to represent their own experiences. The way the brand currently exists with the mr and mrs is limiting when it comes to both gender identity and family structure now of course a lot of people were up in arms about this and we're just like we have anything. Is it not going to be hasbro anymore. They're going to have to be has cysts and like just the rowing an absolute fit. And then all the sudden hasbro tweets on twitter. Your main spud. Mr potato head isn't going anywhere while it was announced today that the potato head brand name and logo dropping the mr. I am proud to confirm that. Mr and mrs potato head aren't going anywhere and will remain mr and mrs potato head so i don't know if this was a miscommunication or they realized that people were wrongly getting up ours about gender neutral mr potato head in her like well. Let's not be so hasty like you know it's just the overall brand like we're still going to have mr and mrs i. It's so absurd. i don't know. I hate it. I hate it here. Guys potato is onto our deep cut. Were mixing it up a little bit today. Instead of doing cut article. I came across this. Mtv new staff article that was actually. It was just released today. I believe but it is speaking about something that is so near and dear to my heart and is in fact a deep cut that i just couldn't not talk about it. So this article is called an oral history of the eighteens. The abba cover band that defined y2k pop. They went global with teen spirit toward with spears. And then dot silence twenty years later the swedish foursome explain. What really happened. And this is by the mtv news staff. I i have to say. I completely forgot that. They toured with britney. And i wanted to talk about both of our deep love eighty s. So what was our age at the time quickly routine. Okay like a ninety eight. We were ten and four three but you were member. What's your first memory of eighteens generation. Which was there. I was their first album with that was their cover. That was their cover. And honestly. I know the abba songs. Because i listened to the eighteen and i remember the eighteen th before honestly like remembering abba. Yeah and this assassinating. Because i saw calm in a facebook group saying that they did not realize that eighteen started out as an abba cover band because a lot of people were first exposed them with teen spirit. Dan we were really the oggi's then we would listen to on our cd players like i i will say i love super trouper but eighteen. Eighteen's is the superior version of super trouper. Oh heartaches i like. I will say i can give abba with all the i can give abba. All of the others super trouper eighteenth took it. Eighteen took it. They actually talked about recording super trouper. Because i think that was one of the first ones they did and they said they their technique was kind of to sing things in a more aggressive manner and just the sped up pop nature of the fact that it's so much faster it's like it's like twice as fast and it's so much better okay. We're getting a little ahead of ourselves because we should've should've said that this started with a competition. In sweden these producers went to a school. They plucked for kids. Kind of out of obscurity and form them into a group and had them sing abba cover songs and then eighteen went on to record teen spirit which became a total crossover hit and got them a lot of attention in the us but again for some reason we were very aware of them when The abba cover cd came out. We had the abbas cd before we had like abba cd came out and we had that and then we bought team spirit and it's also interesting because originally they were called abba teens but the abbas record company was like. Oh hell no. You're not using the name. Abba we've been talking to allow trademark issues today Clearly a very relevant thing in the music world so they changed the name to eighteen and one of the members in this interview. I thought it was cool. Because as the top grade in america so i was just like yeah so this article goes on and explained that they toured the globe. They were mainstays on radio. Disney oh miss radio disney they toward with a bahaman and aaron carter who two of the biggest names the early two thousand who let the dogs who when you make it to rugrats. In paris like the nickelodeon rugrats in paris baja men and aaron carter both on that cd. That's when you really made it really made it. And then eighteen did can't fall in love for lulu and stitch so mtv actually was able to interview all of the members of the group on zoom in some of the creative team that shaped them into the group that they are now. The first thing that struck me was they were only their names are a meet sarah. Donald murray they were fourteen and fifteen years old at the time. And i'm sorry. Doesn't that blow your mind because i thought they seemed so mature. Well i will say in teen spirit and then in their later albums yes but if you watch the abba generation in like the music videos that they did for mama mia super trouper that they look really young. I think though. It's just when i was only ten at the time and my mind. Fourteen and fifteen year olds were so much older. Yeah they are significantly older than me but it is funny to watch it now as an adult like. It's like oh actually the do book young and they. They actually did a good job of once they got eighteen. I think they finally made him a league and they all went through puberty. They're like yeah we can make you look a little nicer. But they didn't they didn't like sexualize them when they were in eighteen which was good day so they also said they did a song with savan kotecha and they say. It's one of the most talented riders. I've ever met and then in brackets. It says who went on to work with ariana grande day now. This part blew my mind that they said ariana grande day and not wonder action because savant him one direction. What it is he. Is max martin level of pop. Sohn's a he can make a song that will make a person swoon even a simplistic lyrics. He just can make it happen. He is amazing. We talked about that. It was called eurovision the story of fire saga that netflix dot net flicks movie. It has like rachel mcadams and will ferrell and it's like about eurovision but it's so funny because we are listening to the pop songs and literally and i are looking at your mike. This sounds like one the one direction writers and sir. I can't say sure sure enough. Savan kotecha wrote a bunch of songs for that for that movie. Yeah he's the best. I love this story. They shared about brittany and one of them said it wasn't that she didn't want to hang out with us. It was that there was physically. No time the way they worked her was insane and one time they were they had a day off and they are walking around and they saw people taking pictures and then brittany came into the store saw them and she said eighteen and they were like britney fucking recognizes this so i thought that was so cute and. She's says she's so good about like remembering people and being kind to everyone just. That was a cute story. And then you know there's kind of this mystery around why they stopped creating music and sarah says you know we were doing really well in the record company. Didn't want us to stop. And their parents didn't want them to stop either but the teenagers that they were they said. We don't wanna do this anymore anymore. And that they only came from them. They were the ones who sat down and said we can't lie anymore. We can't pretend that we're having a great time slowly. The magazines are going to realize that we're not the same crazy fund. Happy teenagers that we were three years ago. And that's so self reflective and self aware of them that they kind of save himself from a lot of the struggles that can come with a child star but then it's so funny because one of them says this passive aggressive silent break up. It's a really swedish conflict avoiding way of dealing with it. And then i loved it. 'cause sarah than says i love the thought of reuniting i would say yes. Someone gave me a phone call and said hey. We want her union tour. I'll be like fuck. Yeah and how hard we go to an eighteen revival guy. I i would die. Can these delirious lose my so. I also thought it was funny because this kind of touches on where the four members are today and sarah actually became a host in sweden. But what they did not mention was that she's been working as a pole. Dancing instructor is one of the founders of flow. Pull dance studio based in sweden and in two thousand and fourteen. She won the swedish championships in pole dance. And the reason. I know that and i like didn't need them to tell me this in the article is because it was one of my original ideas for podcast was spurred by this. I happen to see like some super buzzfeed article or something that was like. What are these like teen stars doing now and mentioned that sarah was pulled dancing instructor and i was like all i want to do is be able to have a podcast where i can interview. People like sarah who've really pivoted their careers and see where they are now and talk to them and talk about the process of getting there. And it really was sort of impetus towards this podcast. Because i was like. I want a podcast like that from the go. I guess like that right away. And so maybe it'll come full circle because i would love to have sarah on here all right. I think we might have to skip. I think about this a lot today because we're already at forty nine minutes so i went in on. Eighteen only lasts longer than an hour of something gets during our. She's like okay. It's really too long now. I don't want to bore you guys. I know you just want to hear the legit show right. So i got a little smith. One for you is today. It's definitely a higher end item. But it's the cheapest vitamix that is on the market and it's the vitamix exploring on e. three ten. I got it for christmas from my grandparents. And i actually texted my grandma the other day and i was like i use it every day and i. I sent her a video of my smoothie. I make really bomb smoothies with it. If you want my recipe reach. i'll i'll tell you it's very good. And i'm telling you i'm not a big blender girl i've always talked about my love of a hand blender so you don't have to clean a blender but this is just so easy and sleek and it works so well it just blends it better than anything you can imagine. No hates my hand. Blender still love that still perfect for a soup moment but if you want go blender check this one out. It's linked in the show notes. Thank you guys for listening. And i will see you next week bye.

The listeners get ten percent off your first month by going to better help. Dot com slash the view subscribe now to our podcast to get hot topics delivered every afternoon soon and while you're at it rate us in review season twenty three premiere week continues live on the view off off the map. The president responds to accusations. He used a sharp eat to doctor. The trajectory hurricane dorian to justify his claim alabama alabama was endanger brainstorming the major blow back democratic candidate marianne williamson's getting for claiming the power of in your mind can change the path of the hurricane and wendy williams is here lie for her first tv interviewed to celebrate coming back strong after a year of drama hsun what's in store for her new season and addressing rumors she could be the next real housewife buyer pod toppings with what the huntsmen joy behar sonny austin austin and meghan mccain now. Let's get things started. I just need everybody stopped for a second because there's a fabulous woman in the front and i just wanted to say hey to the view talked very we wanna say everybody out there. This hurricane dorian is heading toward the carolinas <hes> you we know who is doing damage control for mistakenly falsely. Whatever tweeting on sunday that it was headed for alabama now yesterday he doubled down in a show and tell at the white house win the map that seem to i don't know look a little bit dr and fixed take a look got lucky in florida very very lucky indeed we had actually our original chart was that it was going to be hit hitting florida directly actually maybe i could just see that kevin <hes> it was going to be hitting directly affected a lot of other states but that was the original original chart and you see it was going to hit not only florida but georgia could have going toward the gulf. That was what we was originally projected. Who is he al roker. When let's talk we take a look at that just a little bit closer because i feel like there's a magic marker kinda and and maybe it's me but you see this line over here. I know this all right here and it's not real even either. That's what the hell yeah. It's like really phallic fan. Okay everybody's guy. Yes like what like it was wollen uh-huh so the white house is admitting that this is maybe a little i don't know why is he concerned. Semi descend listen. If you're in in a way it okay and get out the way he needed to beat a weatherman to just because well. Here's the thing just because you sleep with somebody. Named stormy does not make you a weatherman the home that he's like <hes> you know he. I don't even know why he brings up alabama. He went up alabama. That was gonna hit. Alabama alabama's two tate's west of where the thing was really dangerous. I mean people are watching this closely and your entire state is thinking that the hurricane is headed directly yeah towards them. I'm just wondering team is we've talked about this this week. Meghan you mentioned yesterday about the loyalty around him. Who's watching out no we we tried. We tried to win out there. No longer there the dangerous thing about it as you mentioned abby is that people in alabama probably picked up because he did take that out of the national weather service right after like minutes later said alabama will not all in caps see any impacts from hurricane doria and and i think what's terrible. It's illegal to to falsely under federal lots of pass off a doctorate national weather service forecast. Wouldn't it be interesting. If this is what took down the president can i. It's a felony so five favorite news of recent was the was floating around on twitter that president trump wanted into new guy hurricane. It was my favorite one who seen turnover wall which i watched every frigging episode. This is any person with like the faintest they saw a logic knows that that's insane gene and our good friend as a meteorologist and had to go on fox and clarify which i had to bring the clip because it's so funny actually hurricanes work with nature to to move heat so hurricanes are required in the atmosphere <hes> as transference of heat to different areas of the map of the globe <hes> so even though we would like to stop these things at this point in time science says we can't says we know how you up. I know you just being like you can't newkirk no no superman. He's not gonna get up up there and fly up into the thing and stop the heart of hey he made a mistake he tweeted out and he made a mistake and today was the first day of school for my children. Many children in the country and i said to both of them. It's okay to make a mistake kids. It's okay to make a mistake but the president doesn't think it's okay to make a mistake and he's going to great great lanes to cover up. He doesn't at mistake. He just can't own it like i said alabama but i'm sorry it's a mistake. Anybody believe what we were talking about yesterday that he's in mental decline now. Does he's been a logger pro long time now. He's nuking hurricane. I i know what i'm saying. Alabama is becoming nukus. Orcades is something a toddler would say to you like why don't we just nuke the hurricane just throwing out what twitter or did in response because it means okay so here are a couple of them if we can pull this up this says after today trump finally found a way to prove. He had a large art attendance at the inauguration. Okay here's number two after all this time. Waiting here is finally the border wall and then he does this might be my a favorite oh m._d. The white house released a new photo president trump thing yeah belkin pretty good. It's sharpie gate shirt so we know that that you know it happens on on both sides mistakes can be made misspeaking can be done democratic candidate marianne williamson's take on dory and also under fire. She deleted a tweet where that she suggested that we could all use the power of the mind to change the path of the hurricane but her spokesperson defended her by saying when other speak of prayer and the mind signed. It's considered profound but we send us held to a different standard. No she's not. She didn't say listen. Let's all have a prayer. You're not what she said. She said use your mind. You know people know what prayer is. People don't understand when you're talking to god what was suggested. There's it's like you can blog jay hillock basis. You know dislikes. That's what what that's what it said and you can send mistake or okay. I misspoke. Maybe i believe or when i think but you can't people aren't stupid said they're just they're not. They know what they hear. What you said and you know. It's been a couple years where we heard people say things in this. I never said that so nobody he wants to be gas living. I believe she can levitated things with her brain. She might be able to why why did i choose then she she she should both the spiritual. She may be able to do all those things but then say that yeah you know. Don't don't pretend that's not what you made saying all. The judge was very on the subject of religion in the climate change and just read what he said and then she what she's saying is that the secular and the left by making fun of the power of prayer or whatever maybe in her case the power of creative visualization is losing voters by making fun of that and peop- buddha judge makes the case you know he says if you believe that god is watching as poison is being belched into the air of creation and people being harmed by it countries are at risk of vanishing in low lying areas what is suppose god thinks of that. I bet he thinks thinks it's messed up and you don't have to be religious to see the moral dimensions of this at least one way of talking about this is that it's a kind of sen so i think that bringing religion into the climate change conversation is very very helpful. That's great. Many people believe in god. Yes and i don't believe that god if god exists cysts wants his planet to be destroyed so i don't get why religious people on not climate enthusiasts climate. You know what decoy recall step people. They're climate deniers in the gel hypocrisy media for for many years but that made me uncomfortable me me too williamson. Thing may be uncomfortable and i love my repeat. Everyone wants to know why. I never want to be in the business of telling people what i think. God thinks and i've been a a huge proponent you read genesis. This is just my personal opinion. I look mary spiritual a person i have always been defender of the separation of church and state and i don't like mixing the two that for me hearing pete buddha judge talk about what he thinks god things and telling people what they should then think what that was uncomfortable well. You should try to pants on the republican side. We're going exactly that's fine. We'll be right back later. Scarlet letter superstar scarlett johansson says she believes woody allen's innocent of child molestation allegations. Could this end her career or start. A new conversation about the metoo movement in america so wait is over because the view is how all into every every hot topic happening now and this september who's coming to voice their mu pamela anderson wait we go jennifer lopez and kim kardashian in west are o._g. Meredith vieira chelsea handler of johnston abby wins defining bobby flay the world's best-selling selling authors including malcolm glad well and stephen king plus the mercy gordon political t._v. Show in america is surveys red hot political political views with mark kelly who's running for john mccain senate c mo yeah. You don't wanna miss this season of the view all ooh on a._b._c. You windy wendy. Williams is at our hat topics table later back in a recent interview actress scholar. Johann hansen says she believes woody. Allen's claim that he's innocent of molesting his daughter dylan picture after many conversations with him about it. She says she's still a strong supporter of of the metoo movement but she's getting a lot of backlash over this but can't support the movement and still with based on her own experiences says deal with him as she knows to be is in. Can't you do both well. There's the you know. This situation has is one of those things that's out. They're constantly and when somebody is accused of such a heinous crime as child molestation you say to yourself. What do i believe so in my particular case since i've worked with the guy. I don't say that i would go to him and say what did you do it now. That doesn't make any sense to me is is what what you're saying is what she he did but there is evidence the connecticut state police brought in an investigative team from the yale newhaven hospital. I write their six month. Long inquiry which included medical examinations concluded that dylan had not been molested in addition to that moses one of the children who was there in the age of about twelve or thirteen or something he states that he was a witness and nothing happened so based on that you have to has to be a point where you say what am i going to believe the authorities who investigated this or people who are making accusations. It's sort of like the metoo movement in many anyways. You know i'm still mad that al franken never got his day in court that he was just accused and suddenly he's gone out of the senate. I'm not defending what is behavioral which to me. I think that that was deplorable. The girl was a child but you know as we all know when you raise. A child and one child is in the family and then they get a grown up and then you marry them. It's kinda creepy okay. It's creepy but it's not a crime. She was over eighteen apparently when he married her so but this the little girl i mean he has been exonerated by the experts i on the flipside of that dylan farrow has maintained that she was abused abused ronan farrow her brother has commented that he himself saw inappropriate behavior that he saw woody allen going into her bed every night forcing her to suck his thumb every night and that there were experts that also found a judge in particular found found that she had to be protected against his advances towards her so there are other people on the other side of it and i will tell you in my experience experience because i spent the majority of my career prosecuting child sexual predators and so i consider myself somewhat of an expert in this area area abusers groom their character witnesses just as thoroughly as they groom their victims outside when you well yes uh-huh sergio hanson saying things like i spoke to woody and i believe him. I agree with that. Would he wants her to what about what in the show and this is where i think the media movement has gone so far that it's sort of like we don't even wanna hear the facts anymore. We don't want to hear both sides and you have a son. Now i have daughters and son and i think about this and if a woman were to come out and accuse your son of doing something inappropriate or whatever i think is a mother you would say. I want to hear my my son out. I want to hear his side. Story was something i love and it's someone i've raised. I know he's a good person. I want on your side. We need to do a better job of that right now. It's sort of we jumped to a conclusion lesion so quickly and people say you only need one woman. That's all you need and to accuse that person. I think that's a dangerous place to hear both sides the nanny the kids manny monica thompsons more in a deposition that she was pressured by pharaoh to support the molestation charges. There's both sides. Are that's why i say. The only people you trust are the experts who examined examined the situation. Which is the yale newhaven hospital. Good we out. Don't have time. We have what i think what's fascinating right. Now is scarlett. Johansson smart are woman and she's had a lot of sort of media explosions for different things being movie for that was met for an asian character actress saying things about playing a trans woman etc. She clearly doesn't care about the cultural backlash because she knows if she's coming out and saying i support woody allen. I'll still work with him. I admire him that there's going to be. It's going to be a hot topic but what's what's also interesting is dave. Chapelle has a new special out where he goes after everything having to do with cancel coulter. He says that louis c. k. his good friend was killed in a masturbation an accident and it's it's it's sort of an irreverent take on everything having to do with men who have been cancelled among other things and what i found fascinating which has been trending on twitter is that rotten tomatoes which i always look rotten tomatoes before i see anything it has a thirty three percent rating from critics a ninety nine percent score from audiences meaning see that audiences are responding to what he's saying. I do think there is a backlash to some of the things happening in the me too moment because i have many times someone saying to me mega. Did you have to believe we've what i'm saying because i'm saying it as a woman in any context anywhere i wouldn't survive in life if i just blatantly believed anything anyone said point blank that doesn't mean victims shouldn't be heard erred and we're at a cultural point but i also think there's a backlash to some of the metoo movement having right now. It's time for me to talk. We have illegal must do so. No charges were brought against woody allen and he has repeatedly denied the allegations of sexual assault and as you know. I've always felt that people should should have their day in court. I always believed that and the backlash has been really big and rough on me but you know what i'm still here. We'll we'll be right back so i don't know if you guys know it but it is bob newhart ninetieth birthday a happy he's doing. He's gonna go back into stand up ninety. There's still hope for me. They'll be hope for you for many ms yeah. Now i wanna say about my book. Yeah youngest spoke thank you. I was just looking at you. Are you going to entertain us then.

Tue. 3/3 - Are Leo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone Secretly Married and Pregnant?

"Hey everybody welcome to the CELEB- news ride home for Tuesday. March third twenty twenty. I'm your host Kate Raft. Wow it's It's a big election day today. It's Super Tuesday. If you haven't voted yet get out their vote. If you already have voted great good job. Great job really proud of you if you were waiting for a daily celebrity news podcast to give you the permission to vote. I Kate raft as the host of celebrities ride home. I give you permission to vote. Go ahead and vote. I know that's why you're listening to celebrity news. Podcasts right so that you can hear someone tell you to vote. Oh my God but but you know good job to all the voters out there. Congratulations I voted early so I could be here today to focus on celebrities. Okay speaking of celebrities. I want to quickly shout out. Kylie Jenner's braid. You're doing amazing sweetie. Kylie Jenner posted this picture of herself on Instagram. She's on vacation in the Bahamas. And she put in like some kind of clipping extension raid. That is so long. It drags all the way on the ground. It looks really weird and Kinda gross and I love it. I think that my theory is that stormy really wanted to go jump roping but Kelly was like jump. Ropes are for poor people. You have to jump rope using my braid. I don't know is that crazy. I just love it. I love when celebrities where accessories that just make them look super gross and this brave looks. Kinda gross and I'm here for it all right. Let's get to today's topic's showy. Rumors are flying that Leonardo di Caprio married Camilla marrone and she's allegedly pregnant northwest wrapped at Connie's fashion show and allegedly stole a four year old rappers. Beat and didn't credit her. There's major drama going on between Meghan. These stallion enter label. Dylan Farrow is. Speaking out about Woody Allen's upcoming memoir and finally Jessica Biel was spotted out and about without her wedding ring. Here's what you missed today. In the world love celebrity news okay. Magazines upcoming cover story is allegedly this wild rumor about Leonardo DiCaprio secretly marrying a secretly pregnant Camilla Maroon. And I love it. Is this a wild possibly unsubstantiated rumor absolutely does it have absolutely probably no facts to back it up short? I'm I'm sure that's true. Do I think that the headline is correct? I do I feel it in my heart that they are secretly married and she secretly pregnant. I just have. I have a gut feeling about it. Okay the okay magazine. Cover story apparently comes out this Friday but celebrity dot org a website. I've never heard of until today. Allegedly got the scoop on okays cover story and covered it on their website. Celebrity insider wrote that a source who spoke to okay allegedly said quote Leo and Camillus secretly got married shortly before the Oscars. They've been trying to keep the news quiet but decided it was time to finally let some of Leo's Showbiz Pals and his once upon a time in Hollywood co-stars in on the secret. They told everyone at one of the after parties and of course there were lots of hugs cheers N. tears of joy and quote. Here's why I believe that. This is true. Leo Almost never brings a date to award shows and he actually brought Camilla. She sat in the audience watched the Oscars. If they were married. That would make sense. That would make her different from the rest of the girls. He's dated in fact he and Cumulus to be super super serious and I'm thinking Maybe it's because they're married or they're having a baby or both or whatever. This is all just my conspiracy theory. I'M GONNA go ahead and throw a big fat. Allegedly right here. Allegedly allegedly allegedly anyway. I'm apparently another source. Or maybe the same source who spoke to okay hinted that community might be pregnant. That source said quote. There's buzz that can ill is pregnant. Commute and Leo both want to be parents and have been hinting that. They're trying if the rumors are true their loved ones would be over the moon end quote. I mean I gotTa say this tracks for me. Leo is at that age where he's kind of ready to clooney up and have some babies after a stint of being a party boy and listen. Camilla's a little young. She's twenty two but if this is all true I commend and celebrate her for being the one to lock down. Get that money girl have caprio baby and also I guess if you're in love that's great too that's fine. The KARDASHIANS are experts when it comes to starting drama being messy and I guess they're trying to teach their children the family and trade at an early age because North West is in some hot water right now yesterday. Connie had his yeezy fashion show in Paris and instead of playing one of his songs or performing one of his songs. Konya had his six year old daughter North West. Get up there and wrap what I thought was a cute original rap and honestly listen. I loved it. It was so adorable I loved it. It was like really cute. North West is like seems very confident and like talented and creative. At one point she likes screamed into the Mike here. I'll just play like a tiny clip of North's performance. GotTa say I like it. I think it's Kinda cooled for a little girl to get up there and rap and like do weird stuff like screaming to the Mike. I'm into it. I'm definitely not against Norris doing stuff like that. I think it's cool. She's already majorly in the spotlight. She's a child reality Star basically. So why not do something creative with that platform? But apparently the rap wasn't all that original north allegedly stole detract from a forty year old rapper named Zaazaa and neither conner nor Kim made a point to credit the original creator of the track Zaza. Who's and I can't stress. This enough literally for years old was clearly upset that the track was improperly credited on Social Media Zas account which is obviously run by her parents because she's four tweeted quote in July of Twenty Nineteen Zaza and her dad went into the studio for the ultimate experience to finally begin making the music she wanted to make. We take pride in creativity and believe whether a child's involved or an adult creativity deserves respect slash Ahmad. What at Kim Kardashian Kanye West are doing with their daughter with the inspiration of Zaza and our family in mind is okay. We not mad but please show love and support to the original. I end quote saws account also re tweeted several people who were clearly upset about the lack of credit. One tweet from Nishi Baby EXO said quote. No Ma'am the fact that they took a beat slash song from someone and didn't credit them is wack credits. All saw end quote. Kim eventually did respond. Twos AS PARENT RUN INSTAGRAM account. Writing in a comment quote today's performance of North's Remix Abso- song was something she asked to do at the last minute and a complete surprise. I didn't mean to not give credit where credit was due. Would love for the girls to meet soon and quote. Kim then tweeted the video out again of north performing the song this time she credited Zaza. I personally think maybe they should give us some money. I like using the song but I guess credit is enough in this scenario. I'm not the one to decide that. Anyway E. News is saying that the beef has been squashed. They wrote about this saying quote before you jump to conclusions. This is not another Kardashian. Celeb- theory to keep up with as parents responded to Kim on their instagram stories. Quote all good all love and quote so I guess it's all good. I'll love shout out to four year old rapper Zaza. Okay so Megan. These stallion had a hot girl summer last year and now her label is trying to completely is her out. She signed a contract with fifteen. O One certified entertainment. When she was twenty years old and after skyrocketing to the top of the charts she started to realize that maybe she didn't have very great contract and she asked if she could renegotiate it. But why would I explain this situation to you when you could just listen to Megan? These stallion do it. Here's a clip from one of her. Instagram lives where. She's venting about the whole thing. I didn't really know what was in my contract. I was young twenty and I know everything that was in that concert so when I got were rock nation I got management real management. I got real lawyers and they was like. Do you know that this is the contract and I was like? Oh Damn. This car is not there. No so bad. If I wasn't upset 'cause I'm thinking in my head everybody call we all family as cool as nice but it didn't seem like they were that cool after all of this next part concert everything with it's just all went bad at all we live. She came drop no music so this is about how she wanted to release new music and they were trying to block her because she simply asked to renegotiate her contract she continues. Lead label wasn't trying to not give nobody money that they feel like they entitled to go. Shares so yeah. Her label is trying to block from releasing the new music but now she has received a restraining order against them that grants her the right to release new music which she plans on doing this Friday. Here's TMC's explanation quote. Meg went on the offensive by filing suit. Monday against fifteen a one certified entertainment. And it's Honcho Carl Crawford as you know she's pissed about the contract. She signed with label back when she was twenty claims. It's now blocking her from releasing new music because she wants to renegotiate a district judge in Harris County Texas granted. Megan a temporary restraining order which prevents her label from blocking the music. She plans to drop on Friday and quote. I mean if what she's saying is true. It sounds like her contract was absolutely terrible. Tmz wrote about it to saying that. She makes almost nothing from touring and she only gets forty percent of her recording income. But out of that forty percent she has to pay all the engineers mixers featured artists et cetera. So like whatever's left from that forty percent after paying. Everyone is what Megan gets to keep. And I'm like not a music industry expert and I'm not good at math and I'm not even that smart but that doesn't seem like a lot of money especially considering at this point. She's like a household name a proven. Hitmaker I mean come on give. Megan these talion what she'd deserves anyway. Megan's Attorney Richard. Bush spoke to tmz about the whole thing and said quote. We are very happy. The court granted our T. R. O. N. thrilled that the world should be able to now. Here Megan's new music on March six. We will now proceed with the other claims set forth the lawsuit end quote. Just a heads up. This next topic is about sexual assault and Woody Allen. Okay so I have a theory that every famous person has one memoir check that they can cash in at any time whenever they need money. Like if you're famous someone will probably pay you to write a memoir so you can just always cash that check in a little check that sits in your back pocket. It's y reality stars always right really bad memoirs as soon as they feel like they're reality. Tv money is running out anyway. The disgraced movie director Woody Allen finally needed to cash in his memoir check because I guess no one in the. Us wants to finance his movies. Anymore huffpost summed up the book deal with Hatchet Book Groups Grand Central Publishing writing quote. The memoir was generally thought to be unpublishable in the METOO era but it was quietly purchased last year. End Quote. Now Woody Allen's estranged daughter Dylan Farrow. Who stands by her accusation that the director sexually abused her as a child is calling out the publishers for putting this book out into the world in a notes APP screen. Shot tweet Dylan wrote quote. This provides yet another example of the profound privilege that power money and notoriety affords hatchets complicity in. This should be called out for what it is. And they should have to answer for it and quote. She also stated that she wasn't contacted by any fact truckers for the memoir and she also called out the publishing company for their hypocrisy in publishing woody's book after they had already published her brother. Ronan Farrow's book catch and kill which was literally about taking down a sexual abuser Harvey Weinstein. Anyway Woody Allen's memoir is called Apropos of nothing which is like so woody Allen and We have no idea how much they spent on the book. But it's It's GONNA come on. It's it's it's GONNA come out. I guess okay so this is pretty wild. Actually three months after Justin Timberlake got caught holding his Co. Start Leash WAINWRIGHT's hand in Public. And canoed rolling. And then obviously there was the following long apology tour where Justin worked really hard to publicly rehab his relationship with his wife Jessica Biel. It is now evident. That Jessica has taken the wedding ring off everybody. Can you believe she's taken the wedding ring off after all of that? She's taken the ring off. Us Weekly described the photo which was originally posted by the Daily Mail. Saying THAT JESSICA. Biel quote dawned a comfortable weekend outfit as she ran errands in Beverly Hills her left ring. Finger was noticeably. Bear and quote okay. Let me describe this picture for you. Jessica Biel is holding a couple of extremely full grocery bags from a pharmacy and it looks like. She's very deliberately showing her hands. Like I think if she wanted to hide the fact that she took her ring off she could have easily done that. She could have held the bags in more normal way or she could have. You know moved. This leaves over her hands. I mean she's wearing a very sloppy sweater. She could've hit in her hands inside the sweater somehow but she didn't she's like holding her hands up. The bags are like hanging off of her elbows. The hands are fully on display. Everybody I think she wants us to know that the ring is not there you can clearly see that the ring is not there. I do think this was intentional. But I also have to say but that's my own personal thought and I'm going to slap a big old allegedly on that one. Allegedly I think that she allegedly really really wants us to see that. There's no ring on that ring finger. Okay well everybody. That's it thank you so much for tuning in to Celeb- news right home. I've been your host Kate Raft. You can follow me.

HBO's 'Allen v. Farrow'; Connecting Black Americans With Nature

"From npr in. You are tanya moseley. And i'm peter o'dowd this is here now. After days of brutal winter weather states like utah. Florida washington new jersey and new york are not getting shipments of vaccines that they desperately need today. The country's top infectious disease expert. Anthony fauci addressed the problem on. Msnbc slowed down in some places going to a grinding halt. We're just gonna have to make up for it as soon as whether lifts a bit the ice melts that we can get the trucks out and the people out and getting the vaccine people's arms. We're gonna just have to make up for it namely do double time when this thing clears up and these storms aren't just a problem for vaccination efforts. Dozens of people have died and millions of people spent days without power and now in texas. Millions more are still without clean drinking water. Also roberts lives in southwest houston and is one of more than fourteen million people trying to cope with. No running water and alma joins us now. Welcome thanks for having me yes. We are very sorry to hear what you're going through. What are you doing for water right now. And i have a small kelso. We have been boiling water. We are running out fast. I mean we had a little bit of resource and i went ventured out as soon as it will save a couple of days ago. A local store waited in line but We're using the last of our drinking water for for cooking for washing dishes. You know the good necessities. You've also been taking baths out of out of this water and had to wait in line at stores. There's there lots of other people in your same situation absolutely actually haven't ventured out the last couple of days but i hear it's pretty dire when people find stores they posted on facebook or to scramble right to get groceries. Water anything you. This is compounded by the fact that you were without power for several days. The grocery situation food situation is really a big deal. Because shipments have not been able to come in. How're you doing when it comes to being able to have a stocked fridge during all of this. Well the reality is would be down. I think people are going through their pantry items. I'm sure the kids are tired of fred. we're out of red actually but we've been going through pantry items. There's really not fresh food. I actually you know the food that we picked up at. The grocery store was a little kind of mexican dive store that i went to. I'm not sure if it was thought out. I'm not sure how fresh it was to be honest with you. You know we cooked. It almost cooked pretty well. And and that's what we had breakfast. You're also trying to figure all this out. Is your your husband and oldest son. You have Three kids total. Your oldest son has to go out to work today every day. They're they're police officers and haven't had a day off. What are they telling you about the strain of their jobs when they come home each day. The loaded question for me. I mean my my youngest finished the academy a couple of months ago he's actually Being evaluated this week and it's under a lot of stress. And i'm sure there. I'm while i'm hoping their little compassionate. He's doing at least twelve fourteen hour shifts very little sleep. He was deceased desperate to take a bath. You know It's it's really hard times. You know one other things. My husband commented on that it. Just don't have the resources like with previous storms or hurricanes that there's Some infrastructure in place. They can take showers or they're bringing meals and in this case it. Well that's not the case this time so tanya they don't they don't complain these guys you know. They're they're proud to do what they do. And this is what they're built for. You know times like the so they're fine. This isn't the first time you've dealt with disaster. Your home was severely damaged during hurricane. Harvey by twenty seventeen. What's getting you in those. You love through my neighbors We've been successful. I think by saying successful. Getting by. I think by sharing with other families. My son's girlfriend his while her mother her grandmother they've been over. They brought Celery and carrots. And i had chicken so we put together. I mean it's just it's been amazing to have them over. It's also been encouraging. You know that we're not the only ones to have company with kobe. Isolation on top of everything else you know just having people or just forging ahead. Have you been given a timeline for when you're water. Could be the mayor saying that monday at the latest so really. We started getting water pressure water yesterday. Then the water pressure started improving by last night. So this morning it's gonna be a week for me to get through the dishes laundry but I don't trust the water yet. So they're saying sunday monday at the latest. You know a lot of us who are not there are talking about The political ramifications of all of this. What the leaders in texas may have done or have not done to mitigate something like this to stop something like this from happening. What do you want politicians in those in charge to know as you literally from day to day or just trying to figure out what to do next. I mean. I don't like you know pointing fingers the blame game especially you know between parties and things like that but i do think leaders have responsibility and a part of me and another is probably not great but a part of me wishes that their families that personally were going through it because what i've learned from the previous floods like you mentioned. Is that if you're not going through it. It's really hard to be empathetic. People just d detached from the situation you know they might feel bad or like on social media. But they're not out there helping you or these leaders or people in these positions could feel some of the The frustration you know the financial ramifications of the personal losses. Just a i think that they would be in a better position to help out at this point. That's all that you all are doing. Is you're helping each other out your all each other at this point. That's right all my thank you for taking the time to talk with us during this difficult time and we wish you all the best. Thank you so much. That's all my roberts who lives in south west. Houston she is one of the fourteen million people still without water. Well starting today asylum seekers. who'd been sent back to mexico by the trump administration will be allowed into the united states as they wait for immigration courts to process their case president biden reversed trump's migrant protection protocols also known as the remain in mexico policy which over the past two years kept more than sixty five thousand asylum seekers out of the us enforced many into squalid camps on the mexican side of the border but as of today us officials will begin processing a few hundred cases at the san ysidro port of entry at the border between t one and san diego and that's where k. p. b. s. reporter. Max ruslan nadler is now max welcome. What's the scene like there today. People have been lining up at the port of entry for a few days. I spoke with one woman who's been online here for three days. She came from honduras. She's been living in mexico now for two years waiting for her chance to claim asylum in the united states. Right now there's around two hundred people outside of port of entry and mostly. They're just looking for information. You tell me more about how this process will work. Who's eligible to come into the united states now right now. It's people who are sent back to mexico under the remain in mexico program which sent back to mexico to wait while their asylum claims were process in the us. They came to the us for court. The court stopped at the beginning of the pandemic so people have been waiting for almost a year. Now for those court dates begin only a few thousand people in tijuana right now remaining or part of that program a lot of the people that have come today. We're not part of that program. We're never enrolled and right now would not qualify to be processed for asylum under this new program. I see as you say People seeking asylum have been waiting for a very long time for this data. Come tell me more about the conversations. You're having with migrants there on the border how they're feeling and what they've gone through all this time while they've been waiting. Yeah so like you mentioned before conditions in tijuana have been really difficult for asylum seekers. I spoke with one individual gerson cologne. He also came from honduras. He's been in two hundred now for at least a year with his wife and two young children and he. This is what he told me has been difficult about living in mexico. He says it's difficult because he doesn't have mexican documents. And top of that. The mexican police have been giving people problems so asylum seekers in tijuana lakers son. They live in a really kind of limited space. They don't have legal status. They're not allowed to work. They have to work in the informal economy and they're often victimized by both local police and local criminal groups. He was speaking to me from a shelter that he himself has only felt. Marginally safe at so people are really desperate to get their cases moving again. He's one of the lucky ones because he was sent back to mexico under this program he plans on signing up through a website that the government has put up to allow him to move his case four and get a date that he will show up at the port of entry. But max people around the world hear stories like this and they see that the migrant camps are beginning to clear out around the border. What's the risk that more people will start to come in large numbers to the border seeking asylum or just trying to get in so the fact of the matter is that actually migration to the southern border of the united states never really slowed down. There were those large groups in two thousand eighteen but people have been coming from places like cameroon. Haiti central america as always in large numbers. They just haven't been allowed in. They've been expelled under this thing. Called title forty two that the trump administration put in place. So the idea maybe that oh if the door swings open more people come with. There's already quite a few people who have been coming. Even when the door was closed and briefly where will go. And what will they do once. They crossed the border. You know the trump administration those who wanted tighter controls on immigration are worried that they'll just get lost in the interior of the country. Yes so a lot of them are going to go sponsors or family. They're going to be given alternatives to detention. So they'll be given ankle. Bracelets fell have court dates. They'll be followed up on and we'll find out whether they'll be able to actually claim asylum in the us. Max rivlin nadler reporter for member station k. p. b. s. at the sandy cedric port of entry near san diego. Thanks so much. Thank you the cdc reports more than forty two million americans have received at least one dose of the covid nineteen vaccine. Virginia is one of the leaders. It's administered higher percentage of its shots than many other states but some virginians are still frustrated with the pace of the rollout sam perkins of member station w. h. o. Explains why they're crossing state lines to get a shot when the first batch of vaccines not to states in december. John and his wife thought they'd get. There's pretty soon he said he three. She sixty eight my wife heart attack survivor and a cancer survivor to considerable preexisting conditions. In our minds of popular to the top of the list instead they got word that they could we more than a month for their shots. John lives in virginia beach. He asked that we only use his first name to protect his privacy. A couple of weeks ago. John heard that a clinic in northeastern north carolina was giving vaccines virginians. He and his wife quickly registered got their shots. Two days later no problem. It was an enormous relief just the sensation of getting back in the car and going wow we got vaccinated other southeast virginians have also heard about the north carolina option. Last week former. Virginia governor george allen posted on twitter that he got his first. Do's there so it susan in norfolk. She also wanted to protect your privacy. So no last name. Susan is sixty four and says she got her vaccine at a drive through site incur. Tha county a few weeks ago. I had doubts on almost the time. The needle was in my arm by the time we got in line every time somebody came to the window. I thought they were gonna say you can't be here for either my age or my license plates. The vaccines are federal resource distributed to states according to north carolina health officials. That means they can't restrict access to the shots based on jurisdiction even state borders. I drove down to kerr county to see for myself. I'm at a park where they're giving out vaccines. There's a long line of cars. I'm seeing some cars with virginia license plates. I've seen too so far. That's three for north carolina officials when it tell me how many virginians have been vaccinated there. But it's definitely a topic of conversation around virginia on the neighborhood social networking site next door residents post and argue about the fastest way to get a vaccine and that desparation for shots comes with criticism of virginia's rollout during a recent news. Briefing governor. ralph northam said. The frustration is justified. We still have a long way to go. I don't want to sugar coat that because i know everyone. Everyone is feeling impatient. It's not surprising that people are gonna look to get a vaccine where they can get it. Professor vivian reef studies the economics of healthcare at the university of virginia. She says so called back seemed tourism is across the country because some areas are getting shots out faster than others the also may have fewer restrictions are just a smoother process for booking appointments. Burke says the benefit is that more people are getting vaccinated. Still the federal government distributes vaccines based on steve populations. So when people get their shots in another state it can confuse the allocation system. Also it may not be as equitable for those people who are not in a position to travel easily to take a day off a maryland spokesman scissors evidence virginians are getting vaccines there to officials in both steeds asked that residents get their shots in their home. Steve what's your response to. All of that i actually have some personal recriminations about potentially taking a vaccine out of the arm of north carolina for whom it was intended. That's john again. The guy from virginia beach. We've got his shot in north carolina john bellies. He got the vaccine because there weren't enough locals who wanted it. At least that's what he hopes. He wouldn't disclose the name of the clinic. Despite reservations he scheduled to get his second thirst there for here. And now. i'm sam churkin in norfolk virginia. On any given sunday and forty two cities throughout the country. You might spot an organized group of black people hiking or skiing bird watching. These groups are part of a larger collective called outdoor afro a nonprofit organization. It's aimed at reclaiming nature for black people now with the pandemic the group is larger than ever defying the misconceptions. That black people just aren't into nature. It's a stereotype rooted in the fact that for a long time like people were denied access to outdoor spaces. Roumat founded outdoor afro to fight that stereotype and she joins me now. Welcome thank you so much for having me you know. The stereotypes rue black people. Can't black people don't swim. Black people. don't go outdoors. I mean that's not true for you or for those who have joined outdoor afro. When did you personally fall in love with hiking and camping. Well i grew up in a nature loving household. And also i was a girl scout and i was the outward bound student and i could see throughout my life. The role that nature played that helped me to become more confident more strong and you know just healthier and as i got into more back country activities away from the city. I just didn't see enough people who look like me. And i also noticed that we had a representation problem and that's what outdoor afro set out to be in back in two thousand and nine as a blog from my kitchen table to tell a new story and to break those stereotypes to break those stereotypes. But as you were saying there are some practical benefits on a personal level that reclaiming the outdoors gives you. Can you lay that out a little bit. Absolutely i mean one of the things about the outdoors especially in this last year with the pandemic i was just so thankful to be a part of what was a solution for people and that was to get outside and connect with nature or we could go out among those trees those trees. They don't know what color you are. And those birds are gonna sing no matter how much money is in your account. Those flowers are going to bloom and so for me. The outdoors has represented not only a way to get more healthy and more connected with who you are but it's also a place to experience freedom. Okay to your point. That birds don't see color trees. Don't see color after the death of ahmad arbery and may he was a black man jogging in georgia when he was killed by two white men we spoke with james ravanell. He's the co founder of black runners connection and he talked about how even when he's outdoors. He's constantly aware of his presence. And how it's perceived i mean. He wears bright colors. He tries to make noise to let people know he's coming so they aren't startled by him. Do you ever get to a point outdoors where you're not in that dual state of consciousness. One of the things that outdoor afro set out to do was to find ways to meet people where they are and we realized that there were some practical barriers and one of those barriers was about fears and perceptions of not only what might crawl on you or bite you in nature but also about other people and so one of the ways that we responded in creating a program. That's the outdoor afro leadership team a group of ninety volunteer men and women leading people out in nature all over the country is that people felt more comfortable getting out in groups. You know you see these iconic photographs of a singular person standing out over a sweeping vista and you know the way that our community likes to get outside is in groups and so we meet people at that need. And we find that people's confidence and their nature swagger improves where people can feel a lot more comfortable going outside and doing things by themselves. But people need to be supported. They need mentorship. And i find out. People are getting out over and over beyond their time with outdoor afro. And that's the change. We've been so proud to see nature swagger. I love that as part of black history month. you're spotlighting black people in history who were outdoorsmen and women. Why are these stories so important to tell. We have so many people in our community who are absolutely nature leaders people who we wouldn't necessarily think of as nature leaders and one of my personal favorites. Actually is harriet tubman. I mean one of the things that people don't realize is that you know. She was not only an entrepreneur but she absolutely was a wilderness leader that in the cover of night. She had to understand the stars. She had to understand wildlife how they called. She was reading the moss on trees. Ru i have never thought about it this way. Well i mean and that's that's part of what we do is outdoor afro as we. Are you know harvesting these stories. Not only from the famous figures that we all are familiar with but people who are in our own families and you know i think about my dad you know who love the outdoors and considered himself a cowboy and we used to recycle things. We used to lay things up and you know he would have probably never called himself. A conservationist or even environmentalist and so so much of our work is about telling this new narrative. You've given us some good tips to develop our nature swagger but depending on where you live access to the natural world can really be hard. I mean what can you recommend for people listening who wanna start to reconnect with nature. But maybe they're not anywhere close to a park or other outdoor places. We'll see that's the part that i also want to help. People understand is that nature is everywhere and so we have to reimagine that nature access is really right outside your window right on your fire. Escape your apartment balcony outside your front door and that you can tap into that nature is all around us and everyone can access it room map. Ceo and founder of outdoor afro. You so much.

They do at a newspaper. Listen to the new series from. Npr's embedded about the survivors at the capital gazette. The energy crisis that brought texas to its knees this week is creating ripple effects around the country. The price of natural gas soared after the record breaking cold. Snap froze gas wells in places like oklahoma and texas and then prices suddenly crashed at one point tanking. By ninety nine percent of the distribution hub in oklahoma industry analysts worry these shortages could drag on for weeks. Long after the oil and gas pipelines. thought out. Mike regan is senior editor for bloomberg news. He's been following the story. Mike good to speak with you. You and for some context here. Texas produces about a quarter of all the natural gas in the country and production. There is down by more than thirty percent this week. So what's the state of the market right now. So natural gas prices have gone up as you pointed out in some locations. They've just really skyrocketed and then crashed back down but nationally. they haven't really gone through the roof up to about a little more than three dollars per million. Btu's currently and the reason is that. Peter natural gas like oil is stored in inventories. Those inventories tend to really swell ahead of the winter. And then they get drawn down throughout the winter and because there's less demand for energy because of the pandemic those even tories were pretty high for this time of year so that to some degree has kept the nationwide rise in prices in check. But i do think that's because the market is viewing this. Luckily as a temporary event you know if this happened say in december early in the winter when we needed guests for the rest of the winter. I think we'd be looking at a much more dire situation but luckily since towards the end of the winter when gas prices tend to come down they are going up now but the the light is sort of at the end of the tunnel so the markets kinda hoping and thinking. This is a temporary event and not getting freaked out about it as it would if it were say earlier in the winner. Okay well that is good to hear now. Texas relies on natural gas to power. Its energy grid. Which is why the production problems left. Millions of people in the dark and in the cold this week and on wednesday the governor of texas greg abbott ordered producers not to export natural gas out of texas until february twenty. First what do you make of a choice like that. What does it mean for texas and the rest of the country. So you know. There's a lot of debate about whether he actually has the authority to do this. The commerce clause of the. Us constitution basically prohibits state governments from interfering in interstate trade. Like that but governor. Abbott says he had to make a disaster declaration because of this thinks that gives him the latitude to impose these type of restrictions. And it's kind of an open question that i think would have to be settled in courts. Which obviously would take a long time. But in the meantime energy producers were basically following this order of his to stop exporting gas natural gas output. it's slowly starting to come back online as things slowly start to warm up but i'm hearing that it still could take a few weeks to get back to normal. Why is that. You know. So peter when you extract natural gas it's from oil wells and there is usually water vapor involved that is released in the process and obviously in these conditions that vapor is freezing inside the pipes and other parts of the infrastructure. So it's kind of like when a pipe freezes in your house It could burst that pipe. 'cause a lot of damage so what needs to be done is not only for these types of thaw out but for crews to go in and make the necessary repairs. And that's gonna take awhile. Mike regan bloomberg news. Thank you so much. Thank you peter. There are quite a few controversies from the ninety s. We think we know the whole story about the abuse. Allegations against michael jackson the oj simpson trial. And the story. Of mia farrow. And woody allen will a new documentary series allen versus pharaoh takes a deep dive into details most of us were not privy to back then and through their story. The documentary takes a hard look at how our society treats people in power and those who accused them of abuse. Woody allen is famously known for having a relationship and later marrying mia farrow's college age daughter sunni and during that time he was also accused of sexually abusing the couple's daughter dylan farrow. Who was seven years old when the accusations came to light. Here's a bit of an interview from the documentary with dylan looking back on her childhood. Fillings for allen. I worshiped him. He was so funny and he made me feel so special. That's where things get really really complicated. Allen has denied abusing both sunni and dylan farrow and allen versus pharaoh directors kirby. Dick and amy's airing join me now. And kirby it was an interview with dylan. Farrow that your producer. Amy hurt he did with her. During the metoo movement a few years ago that convinced you to dig into this story. Tell us more well. Obviously i was aware of this for you. Know all the way through the nineties into the president but because there was so much coverage of it i thought. Is there anything new here to learn. But amy's did the first interview with dylan farrow. And that interview was so powerful so strong it became very apparent that the whole story wasn't being told well. Let's unpack that a little bit because there are a lot of themes explored in this documentary. Number one is the exploration of power. We know that woody. Allen is a very powerful man and at the time he was the toast of the town in new york city our understanding of what family sexual abuse can look like and really are rudimentary. Understanding of how a child can articulate that abuse and then are depictions and assessment of women. Who made accusations of abuse. I mean mia farrow was painted as a vindictive and really possibly hysterical ex lover who coached her daughter to tell untrue stories of sexual abuse. Amy what was your perception of mia. Farrow mia was credibly reluctant. Did not want to do these. Interviews said that. Amy hertie several times. And then dylan sort of said mom i totally get it and i get why you're reluctant and i respect that. But it would mean a lot to me if you just spoke to them because i have confidence that it's not gonna be the same and so did finally agree was not pleased about. It was very scared and in fact she showed up in a black sweatshirt. And i looked at her she looked at me and i knew we were lucky that you even showed up and so i didn't want to press the point but i said mind maybe wearing my blouse and i gave her my blouse and took a t shirt for one of the crew members and we did the interview and so it's a funny anecdote and i learned recently but to this day. She calls me the silk blouse lady just underlines for only found out about recently it underlines for me just for people who think. Oh mia's doing this you know all the narratives we heard you know. She's she's the publicity hound you know she's crazy etc. No actually she never wanted to speak and didn't even have any kind of vanity going through your mind when she showed up in interview. Dylan was very introspective. Speaks quite candidly in this film of her early childhood memories. Here she is talking. About how woody allen would give her special attention. Let's listen. i remember every morning he would read the comic section and on the days that he wasn't there he would actually leave me will notes comex For me to find that the at the breakfast table he took me to my first broadway. Musical guys and dolls meets wayne the entire thing to me so i understood it but it was much more than special treatment. I mean everyone you all talk to baby sitters and friends and teachers and therapists say woody allen had this intense focus on dylan kirby can you describe a little that in the context of these greater accusations. Well yes This started very early. Woody allen's intense. Focus our obsession with dylan. To the extent that he would isolate her from other children in sort of demand that the two of them be alone together at i mea and actually the family and close friends all thought. Well this is wonderful. Woody allen is always in the past said well you know family. Isn't that important. But then it became much much more and the family started realizing that. Wait a minute. There's something off about this but it was hard to accept that. Because here's someone you love somebody who's in the family who's now from your perspective behaving inappropriately with your daughter but you don't want to believe it so there was this kind of building awareness building. Hor ongoing denial. You don't recognize this behavior when it's right in front of you. Children don't recognize it because they don't know any difference is the only parent they know and even people around are recognized that because it sort of incremental and some of it borderlines on just strange and so we really sort of wanted to walk people through that dynamic which a lot of us who haven't been through it don't really understand it's almost as if you need it for our social and medical understanding of sexual abuse to kind of catch up with this story. I mean by and large. We don't think about abuse in the same way we did in the nineties. Yes and no. I mean i do think to some extent we do still think about abuse the way we thought about it in the nineties. I mean the courts more often than not still send children back to their offending parent. And that's a legacy of this woody allen case right. This case was probably the most prominent case involving allegations of incest in this country for the last fifty years and the way that it was covered and the spin. That was around it. I think influence the way. This country looked at allegations of incest for decades. And one of the things we found out when we looked into this story was there. Were a number of investigations and a number of them. There was very apparent. Cover up that was going on and so we hope that the truth coming out around this particular story actually has an impact on the entire culture about all the other stories of incest that are going on the millions of survivors of insists that are in this country today for those that. Watch the series. We'll see how the defense woody launched became the playbook for the defense that many many many other persons accused of abuse used. Which is to when you're accused. You accused other parent of lying so it objects skates and completely confuses people and it's extremely effective. The depiction of woody allen in his relationship with mia farrow other daughter sunni it was discovered. The two were in a relationship with suny was in college but what he had known her and and sort of been a father figure since she was a young girl. And this doc. Actually questions whether the narrative of woody being so in love with her is actually false. This is one of the other big revelations of this documentary again. We hope people watch because what we were told and what actually happened is very very very different and i found that part shocking as well and i also want since we we're talking about how we hope this like has people reflect on incest. I hope that has people reflect on. Our argues of the words adopted children. I mean i realized you know an epiphany that went off in making this was an all the presence always dylan. The adopted daughter you know need the adopted daughter. I mean how does that subtly make us sort of think okay. well maybe. the crime isn't so bad. Like how weird creepy that somehow like if you're adopted then if of parent transgresses boundaries You know maybe it's not that big a deal you know. I just found that sort of startling watching all the archival footage even the newsprint today. So yes we do document rigorously the nature of what. He's relationship to all the children from a very very early age. And you can draw your own conclusions. After that we are really at a moment it seems where we are reassessing the past our beliefs where assessing the amount of power in privileged certain people have. Why do you think this documentary is important for us to watch. Especially now we have a long way to go certainly post me to a moment. Amy and i never thought we would see actually. This country is looking at issues of sexual assault in a different way and there is much more understanding of the issue and much more realization that most people the vast majority of people come forward and telling true but there is still a lot of misunderstanding about this issue. There's a lot of biases. There's a lot of misogyny and there's a lot of blowback about this. It's really important for stories like these to get out so that people understand much more. What survivors experienced. What the truth of these kinds of situations are and so that we can set up a culture and society where this happens much less often. Kirby dakin using are the directors of the new documentary series alan versus pharaoh. It sunday on. Hbo thank you both. Thank you a new controversy over. The bachelor has reignited. The reality franchises problematic history with race and racism for the first time in nineteen years. The show has a black bachelor matt. James but one of the contestants rachel kirk connell apologized this week for what. She calls. offensive and racist actions after photos of her. From two thousand eighteen attending plantation. Themed party resurfaced chris harrison the longtime host of the show tried to downplay all of this during an interview with rachel lindsay. A former bachelorette. It's not a good will rachel. Is it a good luck in two thousand eighteen or is it not a good look in twenty twenty one and never coasters to celebrate the old south. She's so if i went to that party. What would i represent at that party. Since that interview harrison has announced he's taking a break as the host and rachel lindsay. Who was the show's first black bachelorette says she's now distancing herself from the show. Let's bring in. Npr tv critic. Eric duggan's for more on the bigger implications of this and eric even if the bachelor can recover the season after losing their host. What does the scandal tell you about the state of the show. Well i've been a longtime critic of the show. I've talked about how it sittard on white culture. How it's harder for contestants of color to compete. Because they have to deal with this marginalization of people caller. All of that said. This was a season that hasn't been doing as well. In the ratings as the show normally does and part of me wonders. If this is a cynical move to attract attention and then part of me thinks this just Points out how pervasive. Racism is in america that outside of reality television. it's reflecting reality reality television. I even hate that term these producers. Control everything that happens. What's real is that racism and richly problematic stuff is so pervasive that the show's really have to do a better job of vetting. These contestants they have to learn that these are important and that they become houston scandals and that they can damage the show as a critic and reporter. I've approached. abc approach. Chris harrison. live even Lindsey to talk about what's going on and it's disappointing that the network in the studio that makes this show and the harrison himself won't talk to independent journalists like myself to put it on the table. What's going on. And why does this show keep making these mistakes. And how can it get back on track. Well nineteen years is a really long time for show to run Do you think that what we might also be saying is sorta phasing out of this kind of shell. Well i i mean number one. It still remains a popular show. The show's been around a while. But you know survivors been on for a long time. Big brother's been on a longtime american idol has been around for a long time with a break in the middle. The length of the show is not really an excuse. They can change what they're doing and in fact people have been talking about the shows problems race for many years and if they were willing to listen and really address it rather than try to look like they were addressing it so that people would start criticizing them. I think they would have done a better job. And we wouldn't be having these conversations today. Okay with the few minutes. I have with you. You mentioned american idol There is a contestant that's causing quite a bit of controversy. Claudia conway the daughter of trump adviser kellyanne conway anti-trump lawyer george conway. She auditioned. she made it to the next round prior to all of this. She had been in the news for feuding with her mom and can idle capitalized on all of it. Here she is talking with one of the shows. A katy perry your mom being the figure that she is you still like. She's hog you. I mean yeah. She loves me. I love her she just i feel like our relationships a little. It's a little iffy. Most of my life feelings had been suppressed so then i got social media like them. Now i was is being heard. You know okay eric. American idol has always milt contestants personal stories. Why are so many objecting to how they handle. Claudia conway well if you watched her over the last few years of the trump administration you get the sense that this is a family that may be in crisis and this is a kid in in particular who may be struggling with parents that are fighting a very public space and she's asserting herself in a public space and she's becoming a media star and again as we've seen with these reality shows one thing they count on is controversy to get people to watch the show you know if feels very cynical to allow someone like that who the political press has tried to handle with sensitivity and just sorta thrust her in the harsh spotlight of an american idol. And then of course you know these all the questions of if she was it claudia conway which she have really been considered or were they trying to trade on her media fame as opposed to whether or not she's a decent singer just makes you wonder if they really thought through the implications of having somebody who seems to be having a family crisis in public having her on their show and and somehow looking like they're trying to capitalize on the trauma that they're going through so much here. Thank you so much that's npr. Tv critic eric. Duggan's have a good weekend as always it's been a pleasure. Thanks and here.

Here Adam Karol over there as you're back from your travels through the Midwest. Welcome back let's keep. It's about Sports Sally Aright. Oh by the way while you were in the Mid West. You paid a visit to to Indianapolis Indiana could make an argument the least creative name for a city in all these United States. Yeah I agree. I had something just pop into my head was lamenting the loss of barrel man from Denver Sports Lore now and then I told Brad Williams that he be barrel boy which is now what a course party ball around him in the stands the stadium but a mile high but I was also watching some news. And we're looking at a picture. I didn't know there was a guy I think at Wyoming probably Wyoming Football. There is a there is a Wyoming Texas Pete or something essentially has a barrel around him as well. I don't know if it's Wyoming. I don't know what it is. It's like he's not barrel man but he he has ripped off barrel man. He's he's wearing the barrel he's got this spenders. He has a cowboy hat in no shirt on. And he's I don't know about intellectual property rights but the survivors of Barrel. Man should be doing this guy from Wyoming Salute. Yeah where's the Dignity Fred you come up with your own hook. It's not I'm rainbow head to know you're not this guy's wearing a barrel from Wyoming no shirt. It's got a cowboy hat. He's probably wearing cowboy boots. He's directly ripped off barrel man. This is calls himself cowboy ten. I'm sorry you're literally and by the way with the wrong ladders. Mind you not going to work on this podcast there. That's ridiculous. Thank you for bringing that to my shame. This guy properly But Yeah I heard in. India met up with a couple of POWs from from the Indiana University. As Andy. Long and Craig Sander. I don't mind telling you they were very pleased to meet you and the glad hand with you and most importantly by the the live show. They loved it. Oh good we had all the shows in India were good. The crowds were good. And I remember meeting your buddies after the show and I know they went to. Saint elmo's famous placed at the hot shrimp through it on but good according to that how it was good. We couldn't get to say almost because we're doing two shows Friday to show Saturday early. Show late show. There was no. The kitchen was closed by the time. We're there but what they don't tell you. People that are thinking ahead into Indianapolis Nate Myles Kadian salaries or whatever. The state join is next to say no most. Yeah I've been there. I is owned by the same whatever and has the same shrimp cocktail that they have kidding which softens the blow. Because you go you you go to say almost to get the shrimp cocktail when he can't get in. You know shrimp cocktail for us. But the place right next to it. It's the same. Shrimp cocktail wait. So are we advocating for this place? We disgracing it. The same as we are cowboy. Dan Cowboys I can or whatever it is and no. It's good you go there. Get a steak wait. A second we either condemn this the same way we just did. Barrowman are two. Wow Yeah okay. This is interesting because it seems like I'm flying in the face. My Own Art Wyoming is right next to Colorado for all. I know I need to know what year cowboy can in Baron America. It's a good question because someone may be ran. Whoever the grandfather I'll side with and I Apologize. The cowboy can if he came I I doubt it. It is a lot like the MOCHA. Joe Versus. Latino Larry That's right there's a place in Pittsburgh to on Murray Avenue. They have in my book the best pizza in Pittsburgh as many hours. But there's I L O's and people stand up for that. I love the idea of opening a business next to somebody when you go first off. This is easy and Schnitt. Z's is owned by the same place. That was dizzy inch newsy different. The birds living. Somebody's vaginas different thing. This is there. Oh by the same plight that same owner. Oh Spread. Pactel sauce wherever wherever they please. And the worst is if you go to Detroit Coney Island dog and then coney island dog right next to each other. That's somebody just got into an argument and open a coney island dog next. I like that. I like when bands split often become to bands with the same name in the lead singer. Got Man they just went and started their own thing that we talked about by the way my favorite one of these is kind of things. Is that in sports in sports terms. Is that there was a pro football team named the browns after its coach. Paul Brown and art modell buys the Cleveland Browns and then he fires Paul Brown and Paul Brown says yeah the teams named after me man. You can't get rid of me. He's like well. That's what's happening. And they move Paul Brown off the Browns so Paul Brown moves to Cincinnati in the same state and starts the bengals and then promptly designs the uniforms to look close to the browns as he possibly can get. That's the best. Both storied franchise the same success. Super Bowl Ring. I can't even count combined now. You need more. And more than two hands broncos seventy seven barrel man as when he began ninety five Cowboy Ken Wyoming come on cowboy can. That's almost two decades after barrel. Disgrace the trail disgraceful. Really do what you want you know. Put the fire chiefs had on the jets guy. Whatever you're being charged with copycatting. Yeah you just tweet that a little bit. But you just did a straight up rip errol suspenders and a cowboy hat. I mean come on Buddy. Yeah not good not good at all also while you were there in. Indianapolis you book that thing at. I don't know the best time or the worst time. Did you see any pro football stars out there because the combined was going on while you were there we won out for steak and had a group of large men of color like sitting at the table in front of us and yeah there there was tons of guy's roaming around you never you never know. Who's what you don't know? If the guy's a bouncer lineman or linebacker or an account I don't know but I've assuming they're seeing a lot of guys. I wasn't recognizing a lot of faces although when we flew home in First Class. God what's his name. Mcginty McGinnis Willie mcginest McGinnis on my show last week given all the latest on. Where Tom Brady's GONNA wind up? I tell everybody fly with Willie McGuinness because when you get a first class seat which we did but it's a small airplane and you're the very front row and you don't realize not being able to slide your feet under the seat in front of you. That's devastating you. Don't realize how much mileage you get a good like thirteen inches of slide under the seat. You can't do it it's a bulkhead and you start feeling bad about yourself. Because you're like them six two and this is a first class ticket and I feel like I'm all balled up and then I looked at my right. There's Willie I think all of us right because there's somebody on. This plane is more uncomfortable than I. Is there a greater specimen that you've come across in pro football or any sport really? That's I mean shack is kind of. He's the weird guy because he's not like Rick Smits. The Dutch treat who seemed like he was stretched out a glandular cases woody allen my call them but check just looks like he got into a larger. Just he's exactly proportional he just two seven one version of a normal person Cam Newton's like that Willie mcginest is just a giant of a man. Yeah that's what you want. You want that action figure Tony Gonzalez. Yeah that's right. Yeah that's big but you don't get stretched out in weird most stuff. It's the same as Zucchini if anyone's grown Zucchini Zucchini has a sweet spot. You know it's about six and a half to eight inches long and it's a into around Zucchini anyone who grow Zucchini let it go? It just keeps going and going and going and at some point you get this huge Zucchini. And it's mealy and it's more it looks weird. There's a sweet spot for humans. There's a sweet spot for Zucchinis and that's all I got. It is funny yes. They've made a lot of money but I mean six willies. Like six five six. But he's just wrapped in intimidating. The look at it is weird when you see those it is such a curse unless you get to the NBA to be seven to when you see them going through like what a what a awful Jack. Well except if you're worth forty million dollars because of all the money putting up giants all right. Well that's that we've gotten off to a fine start with a week filled with hot sports.

Kinda Cute Ep. 8 Paltrow v Stewart, Even Gypsy Gets a BF, and ScarJo Supports Woody

"It's kind of cute right. Hello and welcome back to kinda cute. If you're new here welcome. I'm your host bailey evan on kind of cute we discuss the cut articles and my general pop culture musings and i'm so sorry guys that we took a bye week last week it. It was a whirlwind literally figuratively. My best friend was in town. My little sister came back from scotland. I was preparing for hurricane doria and thank god it didn't hit west palm sending all my love to the bahamas donated some months to them. I suggest everyone do the same and it feels good to be back and i i have to say that. I didn't totally take a bi week last week. Even with all that going on we recorded about an hour long taylor swift track by track review but the audio was so shit because i have no idea what i'm doing i have no idea how to record with more than one person on a microphone and it was literally two girls one mike. I didn't know what i was doing. The audio was shit but that being said i'm gonna see if i can salvage any of that taylor swift review because although i'm not sure if it was coherent not just from the audio aside but also from just the general content side because we were like two bottles of wine deep. I still think there were some gyms in there but with all that being said let's get into this week's articles because i don't think we have any updates this week other than i think. Miley caitlyn are now living together so guys. I really may be eating my words about that. Fall wedding next year like it might be happening. I said they both end up with men but who knows these days are rates so our first article for today is martha stewart's feud with with paltrow is still still going strong by marie lodhi so to give you some background on this feud started all the way back in two thousand thirteen when t._m._z. asked martha who would would be the better lifestyle coach her or gwinnett and martha said oh for heaven's sake. You have to live to be a coach now. You may be blissfully unaware aware of goop gwynn's lifestyle brand which is often compared to martha's lifestyle brand and describe things as gupta has become shorthand for things that are wellness oriented usually not back by science but damn that stuff they have on their pretty inexpensive. I myself have fallen victim to lusting over something on the list more than once and and honestly if you are traveling to a city and there is a goop guide for that city. Those guys are bomb. I'm telling you it has never steered me wrong or even on studies that i know oh pretty well like miami. I can vouch for the suggestions on there. Being super good the shopping the restaurants the hotels the cocktails get into the group guides and on the other side of this seven year old me loved martha. I watch your t._v. Show i made her cakes with my grandma. We made this amazing coconut one with lime incurred cream. We still make it to this day and by we i mean she but even back then i thought martha was a bitch and i love that for her. I honestly thought she was the baddest bitch around like she owned it. She kind of knew she was a bitch. So that's kind of the background the half for you on gwen and martha and recently yeah i was watching john feroz netflix show and you might have heard about this but i literally didn't know it was going to come up and it's shot me so he had gwynne on as one of his guests. It's like a cooking show where he has on people. He's close with famous chefs other actors and they were chatting in jon. Favreau says yeah we you were in spiderman together and win. Just had no clue. This chick literally had no clue she had been in spiderman homecoming which by by the way guys is a fantastic movie. I would say we're already in september and is my best movie of the year so far. I loved it. I don't like watching movies again. I would watch that movie will be again. I love tom holland. You know i love india. It's such a little heart worm warming diddy. Jay jillian hall is amazing in it actually actually jake joel newhall might be one of my favorite characters and he called it anyways. I just love this level of clueless news coming from gwen and i get it. I mean the marvel movie movie. What universe is gye enormous. I don't blame her getting confused that she had been in spiderman homecoming specifically like she probably was filming filming in straight up thought she was in an avengers movie and no one told her otherwise andy know. How was she supposed to keep track. It's all the same homeys and all the movies. I can't can't blame her but she's clues as clueless as she has an unaware as she is. She is funny like i hate to admit i told you guys i'm resistant to. I don't wanna like it but i do and i don't wanna leg with because she's too perfect. She's so blonde and she's got the little boobs and her in that pink dress accepting her oscar. It's a lot but she has some zingers. If you follow comments by celebs on instagram you'll see they quite often feature gwyneth. I feel like she's coming. Chrissy teigen can spot as instagram queen. She leaves a great instagram comet and she's really winning me over back to the food so fast forward two thousand fourteen and gwen told us weekly if if i'm really honest i'm so psyched that she sees his competition. I'm so psyched. I really am talking about this. You know feud with her and martha and then fast forward once more to august twenty seventh two thousand nineteen and we have arrived at our cut article so what happened most recently was e was discussing how martha had been on an episode of a podcast called the corp and she was asked what she thought about soup and the question was how would you describe what gwyneth paltrow is doing today. Versus what martha stewart created years ago and this is how queen and martha responded. I don't follow goop. She replied sometimes. I look at products that she's selling data. I don't know if that's an ellipse cutting getting out content or if there was a pause in her stay. I like to think it was a pause. I wish every entrepreneur well and i hope that there are many many different different kinds of entrepreneurs if they're movie stars or hardwood working women like i am not movie stars if they have a good idea. I want them to be able to succeed so good. Luck luck with so i'd say on the surface. This seems like nice enough but the kinda flipping good luck when it at the end when <hes> hello the goop empires already worth two hundred and fifty million dollars. I don't really know of gwyneth needs the good luck and i really i like to think of martha and gwen. It got together like for real and just like had a couple jian. Tea is a little dirty martini. They'd get along really well. They'd have a grand all time and i know they've met in the past like i said i think it has to be a one on one hang. No you know chris martin or current husbands attending ndayen just a chill martha gwen uno eat who know is that the term. I don't know okay well. That's the end of that article. All i loved that one. I love a good celebrity feud especially between two blonde queens this next article is called gypsy rose. Blanche in-charge has called off her wedding by marie lodi girl. It's marie loaded doubleheader today. Guys i think i kind of <hes> you know float towards towards her articles. I really like them. I enjoy them. I don't mean to pick her as out but here. We go gypsy rose. Blanche shard is the munchausen syndrome by proxy victim who who is convicted of orchestrating the gruesome two thousand fifteen murder of her mother didi and she's broken off her engagement to her fiance kin back in april. A family only friend told e. news that can had reached out to blanchard after he walked h._b._o. Documentary mommy dead endurance a which told the story of you know d._v._d.'s munchausen by proxy where she used gypsy and this turned into a relationship through email and then ken went to visit gypsy and that was the the beginning of the friendship which turned into something more than friendship. I want to start by saying if you haven't seen mommy dead in dearest. I know him throwing a million recommendations. Is that you guys every time. It's my homework. My fun asked homework for you guys but please go watch this documentary. It's disturbing. I have to say like it's one hundred percent disturbing. There's no way around it but it's captivating and to give you just a little more background. If you're not getting the gist here didi is a complete fleet on psychopath and used gypsy to basically get stuff like you know free trips at disney sympathy money and she would literally poisoned poisoned her and take her to the hospital convince gypsy and the doctor that something was wrong with her and it took so long long for this to unravel that this is what happened it pretty much only became evident after the death of d._d. Which is disturbing that that's the most disturbing part is that no one was helping helping gypsy and she was confined to a wheelchair. Her head was shaved her dental. Health wasn't taking care of she was literally abused her entire life by her own mother and i think you know gypsy as she got older started to become aware of this level of abuse that when she was younger she just accepted as ignored her normal because it was all she knew and once she became aware of this she started seeking out relationships online understandably because the person who is so so love love her and care for her the most wasn't doing that was literally doing the opposite and poisoning her and confining her to a wheelchair so again it makes complete sense as to why why gypsy turned online found someone who cared about her there and convinced this boy nick to ultimately come to her house commit the murder of of her mother d- d and he got life in prison without parole but gypsy as an accomplice was sentenced to ten years in prison which she's still serving and and it's so heartbreaking to me because i think it so obvious once you watched this movie and learn about gypsies case that really what she needed was mental rehabilitation for all of the abuse she underwent as a child and not ten years in prison but that's neither here nor there because girl can get it s she found herself a man in prison and online like if we're being real and i mean this one that she found in prison convinced to <hes> get engaged with her her so again obviously murders a disgusting crime but damn do i feel bad for gypsy and i have complete faith sending egypt see that you're gonna find yourself another man and really. I think this is all more just a testament to how sad my dating life is that i can't even get a guy to ooh. Take me on a dinner date or any date even coffee. I don't know some pay me. You know for a movie ticket. Jeez gypsies here ways aright onto onto our last article of the day scarlett johansson on woody allen. I believe him and i would work with him. Any time by zoe hey lock so scarlett scarlett johansson came out as a woody allen supporter this week and the hollywood reporter and she said how do i feel about woody allen. I love woody. I believe him and i will work with him. Any any time i see woody whatever i can and i have had a lot of conversations with him about it. I've been very direct with him and he's very direct with me. He maintains his innocence and i believe pen and this is all interesting because back in two thousand fourteen she claimed that she was completely unaware that there was even a backlash against what he and celebs so these days i would say are pretty aware of the general distaste towards woody n. hesitant towards working with him for example in the film rainy day in new york selena gomez timmy shalam and rebecca hall which was a woody allen film. They all donated their salaries to various charities that support things like the l._g._b._t._q. Community the time's up movement movement among others and this article doesn't really discuss this but to give you a little refresher mia farrow and woody allen had ronan farrow together well allegedly because i wholeheartedly believe that frank sinatra tre actually ruins father because ruin is way too beautiful to share douglas woody's d._n._a. And in a two thousand thirteen vanity any fair article mia farrow even hinted at the fact that sinatra may in fact be ronin father so maybe our girl mia doesn't even know herself but but getting back to ronin he's been pivotal in uncovering stories behind the metoo movement for example he wrote the new yorker article that detailed allegations wins against weinstein it came after the new york times story broke about weinstein but frozen and really got into the details of the whole thing and he kind of started the whole shit storm <hes> that led to so many sexual abuse allegations against people high up you know he did a whole big story unless moon vez and i think he's a really incredible journalists so going back to mia his mother. She had a few adopted children in one of those dylan farrow so dylan farrow is a girl and she's alleged that woody he has sexually abused her interestingly. Would he also went onto marry suni province which is another adopted child of mia's so both dylan and and suny were adopted by mia and dylan saying that woody abused her and soon is now married to woody so i'm sorry assuming the logic is not that far off that even though he's denying his claims about dylan. It's like hello you married me as adopted child like you were probably doing the other ruin to so basically he seems like a sicko regardless because while he wasn't publicly with soon until she was of age age who knows what the hell he was doing so it's just strange. She stays to have a celeb- publicly. Come out in support him the wish scarlet dead. I found that kind of shocking and to provide you with a little update. Since when i had originally done my notes on this there had not yet been a statement from dylan but she tweeted because if we've learned anything from the past two years it's that you definitely should believe male predators who maintain their innocence without question scarlet has a long way to go and understand issue. She claims to champion bloom dylan. You teller so that we don't end on such creepy ass no. Let's get into today's legit shit and guys. I think this is a good one. I haven't even received it in the mail yet even though amazon prime to yesterday <hes> so i can't really vouch towards it but i wanted to let you guys know because apparently it sells out really fast and i'm telling you guys. I'm so excited about this one. It's the bone mama again you know me and my french noida if i'm pronouncing that correctly correctly but you know those little cute jars of jam and jelly with the little gingham red and white top in the cursive on the front and like the like cracker barrel you know that yeah it's an advent calendar filled with twenty four of those adorable little jam jars with exciting flavors like mirabeau plum in london. I don't know what the hell either. One of those is is but dammit my excited. There's also a purple figgins cinnamon that i'm really looking forward to you so as usual you can find the link to that in my show notes. It's only around thirty thirty. Five dollars and i get an advent calendar or two or three for myself every year last year. Shout out to my aunt uncle got me a hatchimal one one. I loved and yes i wear them five but i swear that if you have an advent calendar it will bring some joy to your life this december so hope you enjoyed today's episode and as usual you can find me on a daily evan dot com b. i. l. e. y. E. v. i n. Dot com i believe it on youtube at billy evan on instagram and if you're lucky right here i will insert some taylor swift head beds until next time by i have with me my best friend of twelve years. Can you believe it friends from eighteen to thirty years old. My fellow pop culture lover writer extraordinaire era and in fact she is known for her reviews of pop culture cds in the past. She's done taylor swift. Harry styles wonder action here. We have bob elena. Say hi to the podcast. I'm beaming so proud of that intro happy to be here. Okay i'll starting from the very beginning this. I was it sounds like clitoris explains it. All oh wow a great show agreed show. Maybe not last song we needed to start. Let's see i kinda like it nineties callback though maybe that's why i like the song and elaine is not a huge fan in it speaks to me because because when i was very first telling her about the album in my initial thoughts on it. I think this captures that unique feeling like when you're trying to get over someone but you still continue. Can you think about them a lot. Even though you're past that point of like having good feelings towards them you just can't get them out of your mind and that's kind of what this song is about and how she wakes sub one or is it a magical night. I forget when it happens for her and she's forgot that this person existed and my theory is that this is about calvin harris because she says that when her reputation reputation sorry to go down he got out the popcorn and you'll feel or call he was pretty vocal about the fact of her beefing with katy perry and how he had been victim to her kind kind of. I know what you want to call it like fuck ary. I guess so that's my thought on this song but i will say that it's going to take hugh is solid minute and a half before you hear the first instrument. It's a lot of do bebop weird noises and i. I also think that bailey is right but it's nice that she's treading on new territory of feel like it's nice to recreate the love song yeah yeah a new spin on it actually have cruel summer cruel summer for spots mint chocolate chip in like a good way. Okay okay because it's refreshing and kind of chunky well. I feel like cruel summer and mint in chocolate chip when i first heard this time. I didn't think i liked it but then i was a few bites thin and realized that i really liked to am i wanted more. It's more actually i just want to keep eating right and the mint chocolate chip was just because it does have like summary vibes yeah yeah for sure and eh. I appreciate this on fags. They're very necessary on a podcast <hes> <hes> i think this is interesting because this is when you kind of start getting her a religious imagery getting thrown in in this song devils roll the dice angels roll their eyes of of unbreakable heaven and this is something she repeats throughout the album and again when i first heard this. I didn't know it's because she is having the sort order religious awakening because once we get to the song about her mom she does talk about how she kind of found jesus in that process but it's strange because she also uses this religious imagery to talk about kind of sexual awakening kind so it's a weird mixture of religious imagery. I can't really get my head around real. Summer is actually actually one of my favorites. I would say from album i would. I would the first song out. Why can't i remember the name of that. I forgot. I forgot that fucking song exist because i i can't remember i'll give this one in eight though maybe eight and a half you're listening half yeah. I feel like the other thing about. This song learned that i appreciated with that. It had like some of those nice old detail. She used to bring into songs like at one point she she says something like head hanging low and like the light of a vending machine or something yeah i like that line to it almost gives them kind animus stranger things feeling like when they're in the arcade like i like that kind of like neon lights i could see her doing something cool with the <hes> new music video for this one and onto onto the next. We've got lover actually probably my favorite song out of the singles. She released before the album came but right off the bat something that annoyed the shit out of me about these lyrics. Everyone fucking leaves their christmas lights up till january. Why are we acting like that's special. That's not true low. What the hell like like january five days. Maybe february we got something. This song reminds me of a starbucks commercial like you know those christmas starbucks commercials or that one with the air pods where it's like ballerinas dancing street awhile yeah yeah yeah that's so oh accurate selena so good with the metaphor i get hung up on lyrics like we love christmas lights up till january well. I the lyric that struck me as as even more odd is when she says we can let our friends sleep like crash in the living room. This is our place. We make the rules and i'm like. Is there an instance instance where you wouldn't let your friends when you wouldn't allow that you would need like your boyfriend's permission fouls odd that creeps me. I'm glad i hadn't noticed that before do liquid. She goes there overseeing side noise yeah breathy. It's annoying but every time i opened the shower like we i have to say one more thing on this one when i the word lover to me is kind of gross but for some reason this song doesn't irritate me as much as i thought it would considering that repeated get throughout in the fact that this album is called lover and a fun little tidbit for you. This album was almost called daylight. Which i'm a little mad it wasn't because that was one of my predictions that this would be heavily he believes based on <hes> walking into the daylight or whatever however she put it in her l. interview and i ended up being the last track song title title but not the title of the album and she switched it to love her because she felt like this album comeback all the feelings you feel in love love in like the kind of rollercoaster it is but like the cozy feeling of it so i thought that was interesting but onto the next them man elaine and i know you have thoughts on this one well. The song begins and i'm like i hate it because i hate empowerment which is strange because we like women to be empowered but we kind of feel this way. I just the songs tend to be like pretty in your face about it and i by the time the song hits the chorus. I really really like it. It's still pretty in your face but i feel like it's jam. It's a total jam like this one. You can bop too and that lyric about. I know everyone's talking about that lyric about leo dicaprio but i forget. I love that where he said where she says. I just like leo and saint your pay like bam. I knew she was going to reference some men by name on the c._d. And i thought it was going to be job job. I will take leo dicaprio. I wonder why should pick a wheel of all. I think he is the when i think of like a classic womanizer. I kind of do do think of leo dicaprio because he's someone who's success is still so revered and i mean him winning the oscar. He was like the number one person people were like why the fuck has any won an oscar yet so i think that's why she picked him because he so revered by the public so many people were rooting for him and yet he's currently dating al pacino stepdaughter. Who's like twenty two so you know but again this one just has some great lines and it has a great catchy the song on rock soul cycle. It's also interesting because she says i'd be a bitch. Not baller and this connection just came to my mind yeah but if you guys remember she took such issue with connie calling her a bitch in in his track <hes> because she she said that she was okay with him saying the about sleeping with her but she was not okay with him calling her bitch so i think it's very significant that in this song shoes china take ownership of that. I think a common thing we said about the archer was that you're kind of waiting for its climax the entire time and it just doesn't it just kind of like putters out like you're just wait. It's a build build a build a build and nothing no release no climax. I also think this is like now that i've listened to the start to finish. I think that she's trying on this distract to be lyrically more interesting but she mind she fails so so flat on her our face. It's like not particularly intellectual but she seems we've treating it as though all right this next song <hes> i think he knows the i've. I've only listened to this once because i can't deal with the pitch that she sings it in so i'm gonna let me take the wheel on this line and give her been as i just translate that lyric was i'm skipping down sixteen avenue yet. It starts out. I'm going to like the song tom like it started out. I think it's the chorus that makes it sound like lisa. Frank is being murdered squealing all the way down in the build-up. I really did like it. 'cause i like when she has songs where she has like a crush crush songs. I always we say her bath lake delicate. Yes such crush feelings so this one starts out and i think i recall. She says something about like his hands on a cold glass flake. Make me want to know that body. It's mine and i was like thank you. Thank you mean about knocking this album. I will say like it has a strange enj- whatever the brain chemistry is of like or i don't even know how to describe it like when you hear something and it gets stuck in your head like it has jingle power our this album. You can't even if you don't care where it's an earworm <hes> but anyway hotline. This reminded me about uh-huh. You told me that she talks a lot about getting drunk this album yes. That's another common theme along with the religious imagery again some weird mishmash of themes going on here. The the chorus like i notice like weird sounds that make no sense like it sounds like like somebody pouring cereal in a bowl but also i heard like a pop can opening while she's way deeper than i am. I mean about the worm hole. I was like what is she trying to achieve. It's it's so bad this this course is so at its potentially her worst. Course you remember when people heard <hes>. What's the original harry styles one. That was her mistakes and go oh. I knew you were trouble. Yeah remember ruin we all. I heard that and i think it was on red mamie and we were like ooh. This is weird like i'm on read read and we were like this is confusing this dabbling and pop up and i don't know if she's nailed it but then years later we're like well. Why didn't always liked. I knew your trouble okay well. I had doubts thought it was a little bit screw alexi see i really like it and but i don't think i'm going to feel that way about this song. I think i'm always going to think it's a dumpster truck. It's always going to sound like lisa. Franken wash machine gene which i now i wanna shirt at its list all right. We're going onto another one of my least favorite miss americana and the heartbreak prince another when i kinda wanna barf over and just have not got through more than once okay here my hotness so in addition to like the heaven and hell and in jerome imagery throughout this album as a lot of like throwbacks high school era lake cheerleader nece i don't i don't know if it's because now that like her diaries of affirm that she was a full blown psychopath with potentially no friends like there's one line in the diary where she's he's like an my friends came to the concert in helps me set up and then in a parenthetical. She writes kind of like that was gonna seediest yeah. She was unbearable so i think it's like she never lived this existence out like frankly to know what taylor swift needs to go to college yeah totally and i have. I have a lot to add to this actually okay so this this highschool imagery hearkens back to sorry. I keep using hearkens back to i. I don't know how else to use like recalls. You know recalls her norm her earlier albums so in fearless <hes> the whole imagery of that was high exclude her kind of being this bannered you know in relationship and as an antagonist in an entire relationship with the cheerleader the girl you know like these tropes and even yes exactly like an you belong with me and even in the fearless toward that we attended she dresses dresses up in like a band outfit to begin with so you're getting a lot of that high school imagery and this is also in that song and i'm so mad. I'm not remembering what it's called right now where she talks about like oh my gosh you know she's like looking on the crowd and it's like the homecoming queen and king what song that no old one an old one about like a home. She's talking about her ban. Actually long live long live long. Live lyrically is very a similar to miss american and the heart big prince. I think there's some songs where she nails connor. Carnival vibes like cool summer. I'm like spin me around on the neon. It's almost like a euphoria kind of. I'd like that kind of shooting style. I would work really well for that. This song has some you've four and she's made friends with the appetite girl. Oh yes because i risk dated joe always little brother. Always all these have co. Neil always have this podcast. We'll say about taylor swift is that i think she's like she's almost thirty. What is she twenty twenty-nine. She turns thirty on december thirteenth year. Okay so the other thing you will say about miss americana arcana and the heartbreak prints is that taylor is twenty nine and i was thinking that i don't know again. I don't know for revealing this on the internet but we're thirty and there's something about turning thirty. That makes you think a lot of bow being younger not because you wanna wanna go back there but because you still feel young young and i'm it's odd it's like she's but she skipped the inbetween. It's like her. The imagery goes right back to high school. She doesn't have any like there's no point of reference from college like you said you're not getting that intermediary time to grow up and i think she was is forced into a weird schedule of growing up if because it makes me uncomfortable like like our touch lyrics at time yeah yeah and you guys know. I liked to recall an old ass reality tv show. If you've ever listened to this podcast you are familiar and one-time m._t._v. ran a special where taylor swift took a random boy to prom he like renan to go to prom taylor swift and it was so uncomfortable because it was just like taylor did not know how to navigate a high school experience and guys media. This is controversial but i know this is controversial because i don't think she was eighteen yet but why was taylor swift hotter back then oh wine and we're a little hand a healthy glow. She had the curly really hair. She looked a little more by and now we're getting weird. Fifty stepford wives. It's like one step away from nicole kidman. Yeah that's true and you also like the the diary that you showed me. There's the opening image her wearing a crop top. Ill fitting sweater. You're with granny. Panties shorts over sheared tight yet. I don't know why she's wearing tights t t strap lake like chunky heels and an enormous choker. That's shaped like a rose. She looks insight batch nicole kidman anyway all right well. Those were some thoughts after talk about how in the diary there's at least two if not three references to dieting fighting which i thought was very weird and controversial to release those pages in today's climate because i feel like it's a taboo talk thing to talk about about like controlling your diet like she talks about tasty delight with her mom and how the frozen yogurts only thirty calories and then she later talks about eating too much around the holidays and really needing to limit herself because she gains as we too fast and again. I thought that was an interesting choice for her to include those experts from her diary yeah <hes> well. I also only when she was writing them. It was pretty consistently throughout the years. It wasn't like a teenage thing which i found to be right and it's not like you see growth from it like she comes to realize like oh. I have more healthy relationship with my with food and my body. You don't get that sort of ending unless that's it another diary. I don't know but in my version you don't get that so i thought that was interesting and now we are onto track eight paper rings so i i heard this song in the bathroom and i was curling my hair. I will say for curling your hair. It's a good song yeah. It's upbeat. It's fun it sing song. <hes> kinsey and i talked about how it's kind of the stay. Stay stay of this album which which i agree with its easy listening. It's not groundbreaking. I like a simplistic little earworm. The cuddles on in their easy takes a little nagla. We will yes yeah would like the baby head glowing body yeah. I like that kind of. I'm trying to think of this. This song has <hes> some kind of like interesting at one point. She tells apparently a personal anecdote about cold frigid rigid cool that he jumps in and she loves him so much she jumps in after him in this league freezing pool and i was like that's stupid. Rich people shouldn't have freezing pools yeah. Where's your heater at hello. You are never repeat lyric we have on this is the word dirty she talks about dirty dreams dreams in this and that's that's one thing that kinda throws me off about this on it doesn't go with the light vibes and talks about dirtiest jokes in lover so oh which to me every time i listened to it. I thought said daddy s te lake also a relic of turning third doc but instead. We've gotten dirt so again the imagery taytay. I don't know oh how i feel about it and this is now. We have to talk about it because i'm now i'm free glasses in. If she is not engaged or married this album will be her tombstone and it should have been called presumptuous correct. It should have been called presumptuous and it's like they're. They're not gonna end up together in the odds are slim for any couple in america for london but no matter why the odds of them seem together forever are slim and she's really she's. She's planted that seed but she always has a way out because she can always say this. This is not about joe. It's about someone else. That's why shoot keeps things vague. You know that's that's why she doesn't mention names and just give you the exact lyrics of the pool i and she says in the winter in the icy outdoor pool we knew jumped him. I i went into its with you. Even if it makes me blue which takes me back to the color that we painted your brothers wall so it does get personal. Also we have another mention of blue which we see in cruel summer and blue and this to me it speaks to her talking about love is blue and red and then saying but it's really gold in which we're gonna get to later so she loves to play with color imagery and a really basic primary literally we got our red or blue and yellow so next we have tried check nine cornelia street do references the west village living and cornelia street is a street in the west village new york elena as new york eric city guessed what are you. I will say that this song is going to make for act flint. This is my favorite science album mine too <hes>. It's gonna gonna make for it. Really i think the success of the songs that this is when you have like your earphones and in the back of a cab and like buildings are bright moving the past few quickly and you're kind of enchanted by your surroundings made me a little drunk which i think she means we were in the backseat drunk on something stronger than the drinks in the bar and you're just feeling a little title enchanted with your surrounding and chanted but i'm ch- song achieves. It totally does it. This is a crush song. The the best songs are crushed it because it it's i mean it's sign of the metamorphosis from the early seeds. She liked being deeper and something and then being like well shit. I can never go back to that a place. I was with you because we were too far in and honestly this is one of drunk lyrics. I like. I like that drunk drunk on something nothing stronger than the drinks in the bar line. 'cause it's kind of open ended. You don't know she's talking about like something naughty or something magic or you know it gives you this kind of like butterfly feelings that i like from her album which speaking of she really doesn't talk about butterflies in this. I really don't know why the butterfly imagery was so strong on the lead up up to this album. Lots of thoughts are coming to me guys as this goes on but this was also my favorite my i listen through. This one stood out it to me. I just think it's beautiful. I think it's interesting that this is one of the only songs that taylor wrote by herself this one and lover where <hes> taylor's sole ol- genius. I guess and i appreciate that. I think this is a classic taylor song and it i i don't have anything bad had to say about it and then link. It musically is classic taylor song which is why she needs to go back to classic. Taylor songs like it has looked at this even the division. We're looking thanks secretly spoiler alert on line of the lyrics like cre- chorus chorus bridge like archer has none of these things it's like one giant bryant buildup that leads to nothing and the song has so many different layers ann taylor likes of bridge city song. She's talked about this before so when people lead her astray and dole at her. You're right that way. It's a disaster period pieri yet. All right cornelia street is at ten out of ten buck tuck in q. that shit up listen to it on repeat holy while i'm gonna have to edit this podcast so much hi guys this is bailey from the present resin and if you've got this far you are a champion. I'm cutting it off here. It's sort of devolved at this point. You can probably tell that i was getting a little too drunk at this point the maybe in some future episode if you're really lucky i'll sneak in tracks ten through eighteen but until then i will see you next time and bay.

Here's The Thing

On a Zoom Call with Woody Allen

"I'm Alec, Baldwin and you're listening to. Here's the thing. I've admired woody Allen's work for as long as I've loved movies I've hosted parties. The only activity is just watching. Broadway Danny rose together. He's been making movies for fifty years now Annie. Hall Manhattan Hannah and her Sisters Radio Days. There are some of the best movies ever made. They've got the funniest lines in modern cinema, and though he denies it profound insights into psychology and the human condition. I've acted in three woody allen movies, and each was a highlight of my career and like just about everyone I followed his story. One part of the very private woody. Allen story is very public. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two woody, and his ex wife Mia Farrow, we're in the midst of a bruising custody dispute Mia discovered that woody had been having an affair with her twenty one year old daughter while dispute was raging, Mia told a psychologist colleges that Dylan Farrow her and woody's seven year old daughter accused her father of an incident of sexual abuse. That was an investigation in New York state and. And Connecticut and no charges were filed. Woody Allen has always maintained his innocence I've formed an opinion and I've been public about that. My inclination is to trust those investigations. I've never claimed to be a journalist in my role as host of here's the thing, but now you know where I stand regardless of where you stand. I, don't WanNa make the mistake of cutting the accuser or the accused out of the conversation. Woody Allen has a new autobiography. Out Apropos of nothing. It's a book that starts at the beginning. Allen was a Brooklyn high schooler who took the subway into Manhattan after school to write jokes for forty dollars a week. His jokes were a hit, and he met his comedy writing mentors like a burrows Danny Simon. Still in his teens. The book shows that he hasn't lost his touch. Of turned eighty four and people for years. said to me, you should write down your life. You've been a nightclub comedian television writer, aradio writer I've directed on stage. I've written for the theater I've D-. Done films I've played jazz and they said you must have a lot of stories that are. Interesting, or amusing, worthwhile or informative, and and so I had nothing to do for a at time off, so I wrote them out in the hopes that maybe people would enjoy reading them or learn something. It's much more accurate than things you in the movies you see radio days or movies that are presumably autobiographical, all those little bits that are gathered from my life, a greatly exaggerated and. Made Funny. Seeing Norris distortion for theatrical reasons for entertainment reasons and in your domes you'd. Names. Everything's anonymous in any hall. There's a wonderful moment when you go to the meeting with the entertainer. Johnny Hamer played the entertain. Great to see out there. It's swell. Does any singing the song and you're sitting there? Glazed over, and not that you disparage people in the book, but you're much more direct. You say I loved hope and hopes movies were funny. You're of Jerry. Lewis, yes, in a movie. You just want entertain. That's all you want to really do. That's all I wanted to really do and the book you. You wanted to tell the truth to I think this guy's. Guy's funny. Do I think this movies funny? Do I love this and and I can understand their inches because I work in the field just like if I speak to an athlete I want to know. What do you think of this hitter? What do you think of this basketball player? You know I want to hear it from someone who's in the field, and so to a certain degree I've I've included my feelings about these things in the book so. Might Find it interesting. The you left up by the way in your list of jobs you've had you left out degenerate gambler. I was someone who, for no fun, who work hard at Poca and studied and practiced, and I got in to win. Everyone else was playing for pleasure, having a good time and enjoying their lives I was sitting there. Sweating like a mole God forbid I should make a mistake or make a wrong better. And I did win money consistently over the years now when you go back and be the beginning of the book because. Volume of people who were familiar with your film-making with your stand up routines, and so forth going back to the earliest days of your career, but your childhood itself for people who don't know that part of Your Life You said listen I'm wearing the glasses and you think I'm an intellectual, and I'm not an intellectual and I can throw a football like a catch football I could play baseball. I would rather have been the baseball player and I have fantasies that we would have had much better. Life would have been more fun, but I'm perceived of what I looked like as a bookworm or or shrink or an accountant or an intellectual but I was the opposite of an intellectual. I was strictly hung up on sports comic books and movies and never read a book till I was much older. And I was very athletic when I was younger. So I would I would have preferred I. Don't think I would have been good enough to be a major league baseball player, but it was quite good. I was always you know one of the for if not the first one shows and I was. Quite good when you into the big leagues, it's a different story, but it would have made my father happy to spend his afternoons at the Ballpark and me playing and. that fantasy I've always had. But it's a fantasy where I want to talk about. Musicians I spent an hour last night. Trying to get any CD recordings, not vile recordings I surrendered to the fact that I have to go get some vinyl now of genes. Cedric, uh-huh. You talk about him coming to teach you. He was the clarinet player with fats. Waller I used to go and see him play jazz that the child's paramount in Manhattan. It'd be jazz concert every week and he played a night. Sit under never exchange the word with him I just watch them and one day I called him up and ask him if he. Said I'm that guy that sits in front of you? Every Sunday afternoon, and he recognized me and I asked if I could help me, and he said well I would have to get two dollars now. Even then that we should bargain, because this guy was a great opposition, and he come in on the train from Harlem, and come over the House and sit in my living room and try as hard as he could do as a low ceiling that I had of capability, and he brought me a little closer to that low ceiling. And Experimental It's not one of my my real talons. Don't really have any real talents except as a comedy writer, really the only talent I've had. To be amusing. Only gift We were together in Italy for the premiere of to Rome with love, and we were sitting on a day as I. Remember this vividly. And everyone would sit up and say would the I have a question for the? And they wanted to direct all their questions to you obviously. And when they did, ask me a question I talked. About how your greatest gift is as a writer and I saw you nod your head. There was a slight nod of your head. As if the recognition of your writing is more important to you than anything. I only make the films 'cause I. Write Them. I've never filmed anybody. Else's script had any inclination to a depth something. I make the film because I write the film and and I just feel I'm the only one who's really going to know how to mount it, so it's congruent with what I wrote. I see myself fundamentally is a writer. Direct out of necessity and I try and do the best job that I can. I think I've improved over the years if you look at. Take the money run or bananas. When I first started forgetting about whether you enjoyed the film's not the technique has improved. I think much better filmmaker now. But. You know that's just technical. development. That comes with years of working it. I'm doing it only to get my story mounted in such a way that the audience can appreciate when I've written. You tell the story about jeans, Cedric and the lessons than him coming to you, there's a parallel there with a boroughs and you camping out briefly in front of the Berrisford to see a boroughs. Is that a component you think of your success is that you're ready to just show up and. Say Hey I wasn't ready. My mother was a pushy lady. I didn't know him from a hole in the wall, and she said just go to his house and Rings Bell. And I'm I was such a naive kid I thought. Gee, I guess that's what I should do and. It turned out that he was a lovely guy. He had no connection with me whatsoever except some vague tenuous connection with some relative by marriage. It was really like ten degrees of separation, but he could not have been warmer or nicer, and it was just one of many good breaks, which I've had all my life relating to my career I've had nothing but luck and good breaks and people helping me and people kind to me. And when I referred to my career as tremendous amount of luck, People's Oh. Yeah can't just be luck. A huge amount of it is luck, but one thing that was revealed in this book is engine of a memory I mean you remember everything everybody. If I wanted to board, the reader of the book I, could pour out many more details about all that stuff, but that's no achievement you. Remember, you don't I mean I didn't research book just sat down and started writing it from scratch and wrote it. You just remember things you don't remember them and I do. What I don't remember is when guys come up to me now and and they'll bark a line at me and I don't know what they're talking about, and they'll say it's. It's from your Moocher. Referring to some film, I did thirty forty years ago. That I haven't seen since I made I. Guess When Your Kid. Your brain is so soft, an absorbent, and and you know you remember those things tiger. Lily is the first film you direct correct, and that was an odd little labyrinths project. Some guy called me and said he bought a Japanese film. Would I don bit with comic? And I don't count that as anything. I I was going to sue to keep that from coming out because I was i. told was such junk and and You know it was successful, so my manager the time said, shut up and go with the flow and don't make a fuss and I didn't so take the money and run is the first one you drink? That's the first time I really wrote the picture and then directly got the picture that I was capable of doing to the best of my ability at that point in my life, and who made the suggestion at that point that you direct whose idea was of the direct. It was my idea I. I came up with the. If I could directors then. Then I'm going to get what I want I. Don't have to, and if I'm in it I don't even have to deal with an actor I can I know what I want I set the shot up, and then I walk around in front of the camera and do it i. do it the way I hear it the way I wanted to express to the audience and. People used to say. Isn't it hard to write and direct, but it wasn't doubly hard. It was half his heart. Take the money and run. Who was the cinematographer? Do Recall on that film to Shore Lester Shaw in the one experience I had directing what was revealed very quickly with something I knew from the other films I made which I wasn't that fascinated with cinematics. Wasn't that keen on lenses? Which side of the line and where do we put the camera? I almost fantasize. I fantasized almost that I would have a job. I'd create robbers, the director of just the acting. Did you find you had an affinity for the camera? It wasn't an affinity who is a common sense way. My joke would look good and I did. Comedy doesn't require a lot of fancy angles and a lot of flamboyant cinematography you want. Want wanted nice and simple. You want see it. You want it lit, so they can see it and clear, so it was easy for me. I mean it was no some guy said to me at the time. One of the studio heads, you know. How do you feel being responsible for million dollars? That was the budget. Take the money and run and. I thought. Women How do I feel? I feel fine a this is a piece of cake. You have to see the person. Put The gun down on the table. If you want to joke to work, just not rocket science. Later on became more and more interested in cinematography and making the film work for you as well, but but always. If you don't have a story to tell a good story, you're dead event if you have a good story. You're way ahead of the game even if you don't know what you're doing when you're writing, do you show anybody? Are there people that you trust who you WanNa? Even, if it's one person as anybody in the you bounce ear material, offer any want their opinion. No, not really. I finished the script, and I would always give it to Juliet, Taylor to stinky me some suggestions for casting, and go no I. Did it all. I found that to be not a good thing because you get a million opinions and some of Emma good, you should probably take them, but you don't know which one's. The good ones are and do get some that are meaningless and people don't understand. See wouldn't bounce it off of rollins. Who would tell you whether thing could get made in bays the money? Would you ever bounce the script off of Rollins? I wouldn't dance descriptive in but I would ask him. You know you think it's worth it for me to do this project never. Do you think this is funny or do you think? There were times I remember. Jack rollins didn't think worthwhile project. Where did you first come in contact with them well, he was a manager around town. That was the legend he discovered Harry, Belafonte when no one thought that black calypso singer would be anything in Jack was already. He's going to be a movie star, not just calypso singer. He's going to be everything and then suddenly two years after that he went and brought, Nicholson made a New York and people said Go. These two kids intellectual their improvisational people from Chicago they'll never make it and one of them was Mike Nichols Elaine May. And Jack just had a was the legend for having foresight into major talent, and people were saying you should really be handled by Jack and and so I. gave him my writing, and so I be interested. Never handle right before, and he said he would handle me, and then I made the accidental mistake of saying you sometimes I, think of being standup comic myself and. He wouldn't let go. He said absolutely I think it's a great idea. We should pursue that and just wouldn't let me. I couldn't disabuse them of that notion I was nervous. I was scared. I was only half serious when I said it, but he wouldn't let it go, and so I listened to him, and he pushed me and I became a standup comedian and kept succeeding in spite of myself. I thought I was no good. I was nervous. I hated doing it. I would enjoy it to nothing about it. That was positive me except when I get out on stage. I scored all the time from the first night on, and I said why. Why have any contribution to make a comic as a million comics around why me and he said I think you have a unique contribution to make and I listened to him because he had a very. Compelling personality, not a dominating personality. He was one of the only men I've ever met in my life that had true wisdom. He could make the hard decisions where there was no clear cut right answer. He vibrated common sense and good thinking in a business. That's short on both of those things Yeah, you know it's hustling back biting. Ninety percent of the people are. Fighting for their lives and scamming and trying hard to survive. He. He always advised me. Don't ever think about the money. Think only about the project so I. Never give a moment's thought to money. It was a combination of my own innate feelings. That money was not important and Jacks, confirmation of that which really solidified did. When you scored I think that's kind of funny. Because of course, I'm from that generation where everybody knows word for word The Moose mingled. He scored. Sell Insurance for an hour and a half. They give out prizes for the best customer. First prize goes. To the Berkowitz's. A married couple. Dressed as a moose. Moose is furious. Abbas living. Knock each other unconscious. Now I figured as my chance and grabbed the move strap on my veterans. Shoot back to the road. and. That's something that seared in my memory like. Winters out. Nichols and May albums Bob and Ray an interesting how? You mentioned Jack Rollins for people who don't know where he was A. Big Part of your career. You mentioned him in the same kind of language. I applied to Lorne Michaels Lauren as someone who? There are very few people who are really smart in a way. That applies to the business itself. You can be around I've been around men and women running the studio. They're running the company that the head of the agency and some of them are very area, die people, but not in any way that's going to translate into making movies or so forth. I, mean they. They know how to put people together. Who Make Movies you know? Jack Warner Harry Cohn these guys some of them. ZANIK. They didn't know shit about moviemaking, but what they knew how to get a hold of people in closed the deal with people who did know about movie, making an assembled them and put them together. Now when you make films, it's they're not all created equal in terms of the kind of experience you have I've made films where. We had lot of fun than it was a joy. I always separate out how well the film performed. I. Don't ever think about how successful it was. I think Oh, I had a good time. That was a good expenditure of my time. Want to start with actors and actresses who are in your career of filmmaking just pick a couple because there's so many people to choose from who are actors or actresses. The you really enjoyed working with them. You thought wow. This is really been a pleasure to work with them. Well Keaton who certainly I have a lot of fun working with her and I've had fun working over the years. With many of the actors and actresses I worked at that. Good Times with Emma Stone. I good times with Scarlett Johansson. I had. Very nice times with Naomi Watts I've had generally good experiences over the years Maureen. Stapleton was a lot of fun to work with. I've been very lucky. I've made fifty movies and I've never had any you. Real conflicts problems the. We've always had laughs. Elaine stritch was a lotta laughs. You know I keep mentioning Women Lia because so many of my films. Did feature women, and and the ones that didn't the guy. Sort frequently. I didn't work with a lot of. Famous men I work with some, but not a lot. I remember when we worked together and you would call me Mr Allen. I thought that was the funniest thing in the world that anybody would. Friend me so politely. No one ever called me in this to down before or since. Mr Woody Allen even during the pandemic Allen is the quintessential Manhattanite, and has been ever since he formed an instant passion for the borough while Visiting Times Square with his dad as a young child I'm quarantining in Manhattan I go out with my wife for a walk in central. Park New Yorkers have responded gallantly, and sensibly once in a while you get a boob that doesn't but for the most part they do. And because of it, the city's made tremendous progress, and we'll start to open up. You know in the near future. I'm not one who wants to open up prematurely. Because it's pointless I'd love. It opened up today fully. If, just have it opened up and then take a big step backward with deaths and Nashville locations pointless. But I never thought of moving out of it, no or or going to the country of. Wait a second. Take it easy POW. Chances! In the streets? It's Manhattan it'll always be Manhattan and I'll always love it. It's it's a ghost town of course now, but You know, but it'll come back. This nine eleven happened. I went over to Europe like the next day I was scheduled to. And I was on all the European new shows because I was a new. Yorker and there were saying Mr Helen will. Ever be the same again or this mean death of humor in New York and thinking my God. You look up after A. Period of time and New York will go on, and never will be at Madison Square. Garden will be in the theaters. New York is much bigger than these. Terrible things and it's being in the pandemic. The rest of my conversation with Woody Allen coming up. I'm Alec Baldwin and you're listening to. Here's the thing for someone who didn't get into making movies for a love of the craft Alan make some beautifully crafted movies. He credits his cinematographers for much of that. My camera guys is like the nine thousand, nine hundred thousand seven Yankees I mean I were ten years with Gordon Willis and thirteen years with call the Palmer I work with film Sigmund worked spin. Spin Nica St- Darius. Kanji amazing cameramen I mean one after the other now Vittorio. Sderot have done a number of pictures with I mean these little finest cameraman in the world. And they're you know they make life easy on the set because they know what they're doing. Of course, they have different very different methods. Someone like Gordon was very specific, and very thought out was called. Pomme was more like me. Come in the morning, and neither one of us would have any idea. What seen we even doing? We. Learn what the scene was and we'd look around the said we now. It's already ten o'clock in the morning and we finally figured out what we WANNA do very laissez faire, very. Loose, but we got it done. You know it was just his working in mind. Gordon's much stricter. He needed real structure and had to impose that structure on everyone and I felt good was great artist and I would always defer to him. Did Gordon want shot sheets? No, we never drew any pictures of anything. We'll listed anything. I was very spontaneous that way and Gordon agreed with that, but he wanted to sit with me for an afternoon always before we filmed and go over every. Scene in the picture and every shot in the picture, but every scene and generally decide how we were to do it. With Kololo. Really know what the scene was that they were going to shoot we. I generally don't plan very much Vittorio Sderot. Likes to planting. She's very organized. Japan that, so we get beautiful look. Other cameraman I've worked with. Are, more. Relaxed Hispanic Fist who did number of films Bergman. You know was used to working with no lights practically and quickly in no rehearsals, no. I never rehearsed so worked out very well was. I I rehearsed one. Film in my life interiors and I regretted Rossi I never urged anything before that and certainly never anything after that when you make that leap, what's the voice in your head? That says I'm ready to do the super serious film I'm going to do a Bergman ask drama. I never wanted to be a comic filmmaker I always wanted to be a serious film. I always wanted to make the. The films Bergman was making the plays that Arthur Miller Tennessee Williams doing, but my gift was in comedy, and I couldn't get into things without getting in through comedy to the first possible opportunity to do something that was not comic I did it and I didn't pull any punches I was not making what passed for drama. In commercial films, you know I was doing a real European style film. With all the incompetent certain, my command if it was up to me, if someone would've financed, may I probably would have made interiors as the first movie I ever made and continued making these serious films that nobody would come to see was that I was not so good at making too when you decide to do interiors on the heels of Annie Hall. Is that one of the junctures where Rollins says to you? Are you out of your mind? No rollins would have said. I don't remember having this conversation, but he would have said. You know you have to go where you WANNA go are typically you know over the years I've had many. Offers to do any all to, and even now at this late stage as I, say eighty, four and Keaton's to ten years younger than me. We have said. Don't you do the two characters from any? In the later part of their life and see what's happened to them, but I never have any interest not long ago. Attorney classic movies had a discussion of any all. They wanted me to be on the panel to come back with Marshall. Brickman maybe keep Kim. Remember who? But I didn't go. Ben I love classic movies enormously but I I don't like to sit there and talk about the past, and so after Annie Hall. I didn't give a moment's thought, except wanted to do interiors, and I did it, but I'd like to make that picture over now. I think if I could do it. Now I bring Maureen Stapleton earlier and. Make that pick you better now, but. Boat sailed. I've got a couple more questions about movies and about music, and so forth, but as I mentioned to you, the people that I work with. Have required me, That is the word I am required by them to. UP! This can of worms here and I've got just some quick questions I want to ask you. About these the difficulties in your life and and one question that was submitted to me was. That you wrote that the accusations about Dylan's were so ludicrous that when it was leveled, you didn't give it a second thought Why was it so ludicrous to you? You said Ludicrous. A Mayor Amanda very specific words. Why was it ludicrous of the thought that anyone could take it seriously why? A fifty seven year, old man in good standing was never had any problem in his life at all, which suddenly pick an odd day? Once in his life to do something in the midst of a hostile. Grey Cup. I meant the whole thing was so preposterous. I thought any commonsense personal looking at it would. Would see it for what it was declared shade accusation that one party makes against the other so common in custody cases. Are you say you understand me as rage about your dating soon ye do you think that your dating soon? Ye makes the charges. Are Accusations any more credible? I think. At the time absolutely, but the it doesn't make the charges more credible, but it certainly was I was coming from position people with thinking my God. This older person has reduced this young girl and he's taking advantage of her. You know it looked awful. I understood that I mean I can understand that, but you know we've now been married for over twenty years, and we have two girls and college, and you know it's tabloid fodder. The time and I understand why would be? I'm not naive but. But it had no bearing. The charges was something else to. Charges were something that were investigated. There were not swept under the rug like many women's charges, legitimate charges that are swept under the rug. There were given meticulous investigation in Connecticut and also for. Over Year in New York. It was given investigation by Yale. The top investigators of this kind of thing and they said there was no. Thought that this child who's ever bothered in any way, and I feel better that they investigated and I don't have to feel. Ever that Oh. This thing was side pocketed guy was a celebrity, and they didn't follow up on it or anything. Day really followed up on it and they. were. The conclusions came to and then lastly a woman. Casey pass cow, who talked about your face down in the lap of your daughter and she comes into a room, look. I was never alone with my daughter. Then my son Moses will testify to this. I was always in a room with a lot of people. They're all on the soap firm. Watching television I may have sat on the floor and lay my head down on lap for a second, but to infer anything sinister from that he's crazy. The only question that I wanted to ask a before. All this other stuff was thrown into the mix was I mean here you are on this perch. How did you feel? How did you feel like liquid? Ever moments for you thought I'm going to leave the country and moved to Paris. Just get the hell away from everybody and everything. I've never felt that way all I always felt you know. Don't give any of that stuff. It's all rubbish. Don't waste a moment on just work and from the day that the false accusation was made. I worked I did a million films I wrote for the theatre. I've toured my jazz band. I played every week at the Carlyle Hotel. I, you know if you jus-, keep your nose to the grindstone and work I hear the voice of Jack, rollins. Just work and I've just finished a film in Spain some cold Rifkin's festival that goes in that while these Sean Spanish actress. Elena Anaya Gina. Gershon is a romantic comedy and came out. Better than I expected when I saw the picture funny I was one of the pictures that I had defection for so just three quick answers here. What he Allen's film making are my copulation so number one was you don't pay people competitive salaries. You don't pay people money. We don't have the money I've worked on a comparatively low budget. These guys make films two, hundred, million, one, hundred and fifty million. Making my films over the years for seventeen million, so we can't afford to pay what the actors deserve to make. It has to do with the unions if the union said you can't have an actor and pay them less than twenty thousand dollars. then we would have to do it, but we pay the union minimum, and and they do it when they're off. You know someone else offers them do twenty million dollars to do a film. They say goodbye to me and they do the film and I understand that completely, but if they're not doing anything, and they see the heart, and they love the part they do. It sometimes even costs them money because they have to bring their family and from California, because we can only pay a certain amount housing. Yeah now the other myth is that you even if the character is a bit obtuse, you cast actors in roles because you believe the actor is like that in real life. The active gives you that vibe I. Don't know I. Don't know the actors. I'm not friendly Ryan. 'cause the acting without acting just showing up, and they present themselves in that present themselves in that way Yes for instance. If you're doing a gangster film and you. Hire Tony, Chirico, he, they're not present himself like the president of Harvard. Presents himself like a straight guy and he doesn't have to activism command and do a mugs voice. He just comes in and talks as he is, and it's magical. In a world now where you're sitting home and you want that diversion, you want entertainment I. I've learned through the pandemic that what we do. Some more than others obviously is so significant and lives. They need to take their mind off. They need a break. They need a break and there are streaming services now which are very popular were. And they have the liberty everything a sex violence I mean when they write themselves into a corner, somebody steps up in with a with an automatic weapon and just knows everybody down in the room and the Sir Galahad character takes is armour often gets on top of a stone slab with a woman, and has added with her sex and violence have become. Like a assault in cooking has passed as Rama when it's right. Talking Bonnie and Clyde or something, then it's fabulous, but when it's just the the unskilled right or unskilled director. Putting it in because you think it's intense, then it's embarrassing. My last question for you is You're right on the typewriter. You've never mastered Computers No. There was some degree of shame in that response. I must say I'm glad to see. The does not stalled your rule your life. I mean everything in your films. Beautiful Old Music and does nostalgia just live inside you and determine most of their creative style Jr, but that has nothing to do with the gadget gadgets has to do with my Adhd I don't. Don't have the patience. The master the things. I just can't get them and I am not interested in in tape recorders, and you know cell phones I have one, and I can answer the phone and get you know. Dial a number, but I can't do all the things I. I don't do APPS and zooms, nor even know what they are in some sense. But the. Part of me is a different question, completely and I. Do have a great reverence for. The past. I. GET SUCKED UP A. Trap and I fall into that trap. Very frequently, get sucked up into old music. Old Films and I don't know why that my childhood was so idyllic that I wanNA. Relive it I, don't but. The music is very beautiful in your films. I'm assuming that you are the one that chooses the particular songs themselves. You don't have a music supervisor. That's meals. And it's very simple thing we edit the film I work with the editor we added. It's finished and simply go into the other room and take some vinyl and bring it into the summer and I put the record down and look at it and you know that's not written. Put the next record down and then Voila it's. Sensational. Clarence. Yeah and but but you know we do have a music budget. Sometimes Helen are relying producer will say to me. Can you pick a different song because they want? Twenty thousand dollars. But I want to say to you that what I really wanted to say to you. Was You get back out there? and You keep making movies because you are really just a such an important part of people's lives. You have made life worth living. You're. Just you being very gracious, wrapping up to your show and very nice of you to say that, but I can't imagine that I've had any impact except to provide some Saturday nights in the movie house where you could take your date. Box Office. Returns are much reduced in the age of course, virus, but woody Allen's newest release a rainy day in New York dominated them for a time last month. That's true even though Amazon dropped plans for domestic distribution after Dylan's claims started getting more attention what he did. Give me some hope that Americans won't have to cross an. To see it. People have been talking to me about streaming. It and I've never done that before, but because of the pandemic and people are indoors and not going to be going to the movie houses for God knows how long maybe we will make a deal, and you'll be able to see it on. On streaming. Channels! The word is platforms, woody and I. Do hope you make that deal. Allen's revealing memoir is called Apropos of nothing, and it covers everything from the accusations of Dylan Farrow to his movies, his mentors and his marriages. The book is out now from Arcade I'm Alec Baldwin. Here's the thing. Is Production WNYC studios.

New Book Tuesday: October 13th Edition

"I don't know how you mark time but as a bookworm, my days go by according to Tuesday's because it's new book Tuesday and I've got some book recommendations for you. Welcome back to I talk shouldn't read. This is Roe and I am popping in with some must buy read request. GotTa. Have it for October new releases and well took myself off punishment. We all know that means I'm now waiting many many many many deliveries of books. So I thought I'd drop in and like you know some of my most notable vies for October since it's again Tuesday my favorite day of the week of any month my most anticipated release for October thirteenth, Black Sun by Rebecca around force Becker. Horse is a black and indigenous award winning author. You may have read some of her other books if you haven't, you may want to pick up her. First novel trail of lightning and the second in that series storm of locus. There Hugo Nebula enroll fantasy finalists books, and they are not like anything else you've read. But when you're dealing with own voices authors who were kind of digging into their own cultural heritage plus blending it with research in you just kind of get something that you don't ordinarily get and it's one of the things that's really exciting about a lot of authors especially authors of Color stepping forward and getting deal. So in her most recent release Black Sun. The Synopsis In the City of Tova Winter Solstice is usually a time for celebration and renewal, but this year it coincides with a solar eclipse. Celestial event prescribed by the Sun Pres as an unbalancing of the world. Meanwhile, a ship launches from a distance city bound for Tova, and set to arrive on the solstice the captain of the ship. Zia. is a disgrace teak who song can calm the waters around her as easily as it can warp Ammann's mine now I'm about you but that right there was enough to make me preorder the book because I like it when people are just blending in aspects of sci fi space opera with more of an a unique aspect and look at supernatural or mystical powers that made come from being rooted in your blood and your heritage or many other things. The rest of the Synopsis For Ship Carries One passenger described his harmless. The passenger Serapio is a young man blind scarred cloaked destiny as Eela well knows when a man is described as harmless, he's usually ends. Up. Being Villain crafted with unforgettable characters Rebecca Roan horse has created an epic adventure exploring the decadence power missed the weight of history the struggle of individual swimming against the confines of society, and they're broken pass in the most original series debut in a decade. Now, that last part is obviously the sales pitch, let's you know this is going to be the beginning of a series, which is never a bad thing with Rebecca's writing and she didn't really tends to live up to the hype I will say that it's been my experience that it takes a minute to kind of connect with her characters and find the flow but once you do the stories really go. And I'm never ever upset when someone wars and right off the bat that there's going to be villain there will be fights and there will be the uninspected. preorder this book as soon as it was available for preorder I highly recommend anything by Rebecca horror she is quickly becoming one of my favorite own voices authors. Now. While I was doing research for the rest of books to lose my mind and by I. Ran Across the Synopsis for Book Title Daughters of Jubilation by Carolee Kornmann, and well, I don't know about you. But the world is on fire literally I live in California and I'm looking for books that seem to WanNa come at looking at things in a historical aspect, but putting it into a fictionalized setting and blending it with magic possibly magic. That's more rooted from a spiritual place that feels recognizable and resonates. With me and still talks about places and times in history that we don't often confront in ways that provoke and give you a different perspective. So the Synopsis For this one is in the Jim, crow south white supremacy rains intentions are high, but eveline decamp has other worry other things to worry about she has two little sisters to look after and overworked single mother and a longtime crush who's finally making a move. On top of all that eady's magic abilities are growing stronger by the day her family calls it jubilation a gift passed down from generations of black women since the time of slavery and as Eady's talents weaken something dark comes loose and threatens to resurface and when the demons vs past finally shake free she must embrace her mighty lineage and summoned the power that lies within her I am a big fan of. Natural Magic I'm a big fan of people digging into what had to be lives that were lived outside the confines of the restrictions that existed by looking at the world and experience in the world through a very white lynch. So it may be set in the Jim Crow South, but it sounds like it may give us a way of talking about things that seems interesting. So I took a risk and ordered the. Now part of the reason why I was willing to do that is Carla. Corinth. Is a playwright who lives in La and she does really amazing plays and I was willing to take A. Take a risk, take a chance. She's won awards her first novel. The truth is right now was really good. Wasn't completely my bag, but I don't think I was the target audience. So I feel like I might be the target audience for this because. It seems like things might get rowdy and that's generally my bag. So I am all in for daughters jubilation, which also released October thirteenth and I found this one at the last minute I ran across interview with the author talking about their book. The author is Martha Sterile, the book coming out of the on the roof veil and I have things four unlikeable characters doing something and learning to grow and be more than just. A bitch or an Asshole, and I also have a thing for enemies, lovers stories, and this looks like it might give me all those things that I like. The Synopsis Isn't Manual. Oh. Ranko has always gotten exactly what she wanted the privilege of the house of Rango, her darling, her daring and sharp mind kept her from being the traditional young lady everyone wishes. She would be what other people think of her is of no consequence the. Mary her best friend and heir to the first house of Osa despite the fact that they are both secretly gay through AOL Emmanuella, we'll be able to rule the city. Now there's ever a reason to necessarily I'd something about yourself that could block your blessings telling me that getting married to home dude I'm not going to have to worry about on a personal level, but puts me in the position of having power to rule everything around me my make me do it. The rest of this analysis is however, Emanuel has another deeper secret that could shatter her plans and Chia. The source of all water is water. Cray. A mysterious being with blood magic requires all the tunes to give themselves to her when their first ruse like omen appears on their skin. Now just tells you right now this girl was selfish. She's self involved and motivated to fulfil her own needs and she going to do some real real dumb. That's going to hurt everybody around her I generally tend to like stories like that. Maybe it's because I like to yell at my books as much as yell TV shows but anyway when the water exposes her during her wedding ceremony Emmanuel fights back and kills her because that seems like a really good thing to do. Really good thing to do to the thing that gives everybody water. So From, that you can take water supplies dangerously low, and now they have no source of their water. It becomes a race against time for manual to AOL to travel through mysterious blood red veil that surrounds their city in order to uncover the secrets watercraft magic and find a way to save Chia by any means necessary y'all the story is going to. Be. A mess and I'm really here for it. It released October thirteenth and it's on my list to request at my library because I ran out of money don't judge me shut up requesting blitzes your library for them to be in stock and available by e books is a great way to support libraries and make sure that your city locales don't de-fund. Your libraries and remove programs you need just because we all have to slow down and practice things that in a way that's a little bit more safe for those around us. But books are in must have especially in the time avoidance of people and just based on the synopsis and how I think things my phone get real messy I'm definitely thinking. Beyond the veil that's going to be one that comes to me. Now I have to say the next books that I'm going to talk about I, am completely and utterly biased in favor of the author. If they write it I buy it I don't even generally tend to look at the synopsis because I have never ever failed to enjoy their writing the. The world they choose to build, and I always get overly involved in attached to at least one of the characters and one writer for me who has her own shelf and will continue to have shelves and I had a tendency to buy multiple copies of their books because it's not my brilliant. They do special editions is Victoria Schwab also known as each route she's a fantasy author who wrote my all time favorite superhero and villain origin story called vicious. She followed it up after years of leaving her fans hanging. With a sequel, vengeance was just as good and just makes me hope that she goes back to that world more. She's best known for the shades of magic trilogy. Gas Lamps fantasy which just means it set in a magical version of nineteenth century England. That is a must read if you like portal fantasies and it's unless read if you don't know what a portable fantasy is and you think you might live portal fantasies if you just like alternate time and things get crazy, she's right up your alley besides she likes monster she has a PhD should always gets real her latest the invisible life of Addie larue released. October six and I am currently waiting online to come into the mail. I am also attending the special event that is happening at mysterious galaxy. Later, this month where she will be in conversation with I can't even remember right now I think is Felicia Day, which just makes me more excited about it, but she is a serious talent she builds immersive worlds and she leaves some amazing. Magical Tales. So I'm pretty sure I'm GonNa like the invisible ruin my life. My Book. So if you don't know anything about the book synopsis, is France Seventeen Fourteen in a moment of desperation. A young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and it's cursed to be forgotten by everyone. She needs because bargains with the devil all have strings Ya'll one day people remember that but does begins the extraordinary life adding larue and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries, continents across history and art as young woman learns how far she'll go to leave. Her mark on the world but everything changes when nearly three hundred years later addy stumbles across the young man in the Hidden Bookstore and he remembers her name I heard about this book many many many years ago when story was doing a book signing in San Diego and I have been anxiously anticipating it ever since then and everything that I've read about it the teasers I read online of Artie let me know that will be dropping everything else that I'm reading this one gets here. The other author who I've never not enjoyed their books, and now I just buy everything they write is Julie see how she's Vietnamese American fantasy author and she's best known for East Asian inspired stories about you know fairy tales retold in resets in a different culture and from a different perspective. My personal favorite is the force of a thousand lanterns, which is about the evil queen from. Snow. White 'cause I always felt like she got you know poor shake no one. Asks, why was she? Even why would she wa- she going dead girl's heart and I feel these are questions that we should have answered and the approach and the style of them from then on I was hooked on her work, a smooth and readily accessible writing style. She's got a great tone of voice. It brings Jama it sets up mysteries and then unravels them and she brings all of the world she builds to life with really really vibrant and vivid descriptions she's. got a fantastic way with a fairytale retailing too smoothly integrated into a culture perspective that's outside of the norm but always welcome at least by me. Now, her latest book is the Mirror Broken wishes, and it is the beginning of a four book series where each excessive book will be written by a different. All of the author's own voice authors, which is a beautiful thing itself. Thank you very much Disney and it will travel and track magical heirlooms as they pass through. One families through the generations so dow is writing the first book. It will be followed up by book by Clayton who wrote the bells, and if you haven't read that one trust me, you really want to J. C. Cervantes and l. mckinney will close out the game with the final book in the series. Then y'all already know like mckinney because her nightmare verse is just that just just brilliant and I've got a pot cast energy with her about the first one and y'All. Just trust me. So. The Synopsis, for Broken Wish is eighteen, sixty, five, hundred Germany, sixteen year old has a secret. She is visioned in strange powers that she will do anything to hide. She knows the warnings about what happens to which is in their small village of Hanno. She's heard the terrible things people say about the witch of the North would and the militias hunts that follow. But when elva accidentally witnesses devastating vision of the future she decides she has to do everything she can to prevent it. Tapping into her powers for the first time discovers a magical mirror and its owner none other than the witch of the North Woods herself as ever learns more about her burgeoning magic and the line between here on villain begins to blur, she must find the right path to right wrongs before it's too late. Now, those aren't enough clues for you for what the magical heirloom is. I'll know what's out I. Mean read fairytales. It'll make you happy in this time of disaster chaos. So it is an absolute read. It released October six as did added Larue and trust me I'm unbound book. Okay. So reading is really pretty much what I do. I prefer to get series because if I like an author, I like to know that there's going to be more and if other is writing a trilogy or do all. and. I really liked the first one. I'm pretty good too cold preorder. The second if for no other reason to make sure that the print run is long enough and big enough for other people to discover the first book and then the second book still be available and if you read books by. Authors. Of Color especially black authors it is always a good thing to reorder their next books. So they actually get support from their labels. Don't take my word for it. Go read and follow the Hashtag publishing pays me and find out what the differences are between how non White Authors and White Authors get paid y'all it's crazy. So a book that I discovered and if you have kids trust me this one, you WanNa get you Wanna read with them and then you don't have to fight your kids to keep ownership of your book because Kwami in Bali. Started a series called with tristen strong punches a hole in the sky, the sequel, the strong destroy the world came out October six, and these stories are just fan tastic their bright. Happy. If you walk away from these stories and you aren't in love with gum baby I, don't know what's wrong with. You could go baby at and is everything. So. The first one is about a seventh grader name Tristian saw strong and feels anything. But stronger ever since he failed to save his best friend when they were in a bus accident together, all he has left of Eddie is a journal where he wrote stories interesting has been dreading the month where he's supposed to spend time with his grandparents in Alabama. At everybody just wants to get there in heal from the tragedy but obviously things go strange and he ends up going on an adventure which kind of starts with him literally punching a hole entry and accidentally ripping a hole in the space time continuum known as the mid pass, and that's volatile place where the burning see a haunted bom ships, iron monsters, and other things. So that is the first digs richer. The second adventure is out destroy the world, and he's back from his adventure victorious but he has ptsd and visiting the land of African American folk heroes and African gods is no. No mean feat there's no rest for the weary. Back in his grandmother's -ducted by a mysterious villain out for revenge. So he now must return again to Oakley and reunite with his loud mouth side kick that you will love gum baby in order to rescue Nanna and stop the culprit from creating further devastation I don't want to spoil too much not even by reading the The synopsis because I found that I, think they give them a little bit too much way trying to lead people into this book because the book is actually a middle grade book but most of my listeners are adults but trust me, it's a it's a delight. It's a joy anxiously awaiting to see how he blends in more. Black Heroes and African gods into the story. This one has a non in it who's now a web developer and I'm just expecting more shenanigans shade from gum baby. Now, there's another book that I got hooked on that I started reading and the Library of the unwritten by Aj hack with came out last year and it was an undisputed really fun jam-packed Quick Action Adventure and they're doing a second one. So I'm definitely GonNa read it, and the Synopsis For the Second One is the library of the unwritten hell was saved from total. Devastation but hundreds of potential books were destroyed former Librarian Clare and brevity than US feel loss of those stories and are trying to adjust to their new roles within the arcane wing and library respectively. But when the remains of those books begin to leak a strange, INC Claire realizes that the library has kept secrets from Hell and its own librarians that was really enough to make me want to know what the hell was going on because the first book was just really uninspected the way that they blended in things that you know about. The world and it just really had a big action. Feel it reminded me of the librarians but with more debt and more care for the characters that they pulled from fiction and history to bring to light and the adventure was unparalleled and it was just a little creepy. So I'm all in for the Arcata the forgotten, it came out on October six. Now, I do tend to troll to look for things that might just be too interesting to pass up and earlier this year I ran across two books. The first one is called hush by Dylan Farrow, and the second one is called blaze games by Umpire Ot's and I just kind of put them on my. To wait to see more just because well, Dylan Farrow is the child, the famous people and I was curious to see how someone who's only writing and I've ever seen anything about has been nonfiction memoir based with do switching over to being fantasy speculative fiction type world. So the synopsis of Hush is Seventeen Year, old shays led a seemingly quiet life joking with her best friend, Fiona and chatting with mad the neighborhood boy who always knows how to make her smile all while secretly keeping her fears at Bay of the disease it took her brother's life about her dream seemed to bleed into reality around her of a group of justice seekers called the bars who claim to us the magic. Of telling to keep our community safe. But what her mother is murdered, she can no longer pretend not knowing who to trust shade journeys to unlock the truth instead finding a new enemy keen to destroy her and a brooding boy with dark secrets in an untold power. She never thought that's really super vague which makes me feel like this is probably going to be a dentistry where I'm going to have to wait for a little bit of world building but it looks like it's got an unique magic system. It's definitely looks like there's probably going to be some good versus evil and probably a little bit of Patriarchy busting since Dylan Farrow is off is known mostly is being an. and. Taking on issues that have to do with empowerment and giving voice to the voiceless and when standing up for people who've been abused in harm. So it's on my radar I. Think it should be on yours. I've heard good things about it and it's it's GonNa take a chance list because it's looking really interesting to pass up. Now the book that I bought Sight Unseen because I love the cover and I love the synopsis and it really drew was. Too Interesting, for me to pass up is blade, race games. Leonard Tour is always preferred dragons to people in a few weeks. Sixteen countries will compete in the blaze wrath, World Cup a tournament where dragons and their riders fight for glory in. Dangerous. Relay Yeah. I bought the book right there. It's got dragons and it looks like it's GonNa take riff on probably. All of my favorite dangerous sports and I I don't care Those are things that will make him value both the rest of this synopsis Goes Len Alongside Represent Her native Puerto Rico in their first ever World Cup appearance and Puerto Rico's runner. The only player without a Dragon Steve is kicked off the team she's given the chance but when she discovers it. A foreigner blaze rats superstar has teamed up with the Sire a legendary dragon whose carson to human form, which clearly is not making them. Happy. The safety of the cup is jeopardize. The pair are burning down. Dragon Sanctuaries around the world and refuse to stop unless the cup gets cancelled. All a wanted to do was represent her country now to do that she'll. have. To navigate an international conspiracy that's deadlier than her beloved sport I can't I'm sorry. I Love Sports I love political upheaval I love dragons I love mystery alum mayhem ablaze wrath game sight unseen I will circle back and Lynch I'll know how it turned out with a longer more in depth review. Hopefully I don't d. and F. That book because I'm excited just. Because the world is on fire and. The the people who are supposed to be guiding us through the fire safely always failed to do. So it feels like you know we should probably come up with alternate ways to look at the world and maybe change our perspective. So we can fix what's broken before it really does end and when I find myself in that frame of mind, it usually means I wanna read kind of like more humanist scientists look rather than just a POC, elliptic version of the DYSTOPIA and future, and that means I. Want to read it Kim Stanley Robinson Book. So the most recent came out again, October six, the ministry for the future and the ministry was established in two thousand, twenty five for the purpose of the new organization was simple to advocate for the world's future generations to protect all living creatures present and future. It became known as the Ministry of the future and this story Kim Stanley Robinson has a way of taking what feels like diary entries, anecdotal reports or data science at two relations and building a story. In a world that feels very very very near now and I expect this one is probably gonNA. Make me have to think about things and wonder what about I'm doing and and how we advocate for ourselves and I always enjoys books plus they are always a very biting commentary on how trash we are people, and why sometimes we don't deserve to be saved. But since we're on the earth, maybe we should try if you don't have a lot of time for reading I, always always suggest a novella it's a shorter link, but you can still get full rich world and tore dot com once again is coming through with some novellas that have a little bit of something for everybody. Now. One of my favorite. is named Sean Maguire and she is like forty thousand split personalities and in her current personality a dubber Baker She's written a book called over the Woodward Wall that came out October six. And this. Is Every is an exceptional child everything he does is precise from the way he washes his face in the morning to the way he completes his homework without complaint without fuss without prompt zip is also an exceptional child because all children are in their own way we're everything avery does is and can be measured. Nothing's ZIP does can be possibly predicted. It set for the fact that she can always be relied upon to be unpredictable. They live on the same street. They live in different worlds. On an unplanned detour from home to school one morning, Adrian Zip find themselves climbing over a stone wall into the up and under an impossible land filled with mystery adventure and the strangest creatures. And they must find themselves in each other if they're also to find their way out and back to their lives, y'all they're not gonNA give their lives. Okay. So it's just not. It's not gonNA happen is a guarantee that this adventure is going to go sideways and the. Child is going to Abram if not killed irreparably changed, committed the remainder of his life if he gets out of the up and under, he ain't never going to be the same going therapy things go wrong. He's GonNa come back with some kind of magic or some kind of problem. It's just the way. The Sean Rights while I love her and I will let you know how this one turns out already ordered it because I read her book she is a constant nominee and finalists for Hugo awards and final words and all of her incarnations are worth read of some kind because the. Places she goes in her mind and the adventure she takes you on from what she pulls out are always worth it. Now, there's another book that came out. It's called the midnight bargain by C. L. Poke I ran across another series of Co pokes and got myself hooked so I started this one so far it's a little bit of a slow burn because gotta do some interesting world building because it's slightly all history, but it's not like anything I've read that blends these kind of concepts together like practical magic sorcerers, Mangga ses, and blending altogether in a world where there's like arranged marriages and What you are, who you can calm is all dependent on your place in society. So the original or the official synopsis. Beatrice claiborne is a sorceress who practice magic in secret terrified of the day she'll be locked into marital collar. Yeah I don't See. Yeah I would probably not be survive in this time period I would die I would I it's a magical caller that cuts her powers in order to protect children she has from her magic. Kids to give up a magic I. Don't understand why it's either or I think through anyway she dreams of becoming a full-fledged mangoes and pursuing magic as her calling as men do, but her family has stated staked. To quit for bargaining season when young men and women of means descend upon the city to negotiate the best marriages, the claiborne severe debt, and only she can save them by securing an advantageous marriage before their creditors come calling y'all I wasn't made it. I wouldn't have made it my family of debtor's prison and feel horrible in a stroke of luck via Trish finds fines. Grim arena contains the key to becoming. A magaz-. But before she can purchase it, arrival sorceress swindles the book right out of her hand. So we already know it is about to be some fights and I've say we take ravel sorceress when we punch a throat because that's just rude or some of the spirit to help her get it back. But her new ally Zack's price beatrice I kiss with her adversaries brother, the handsome compassionate and fabulously wealthy. In its event of course, they're going to introduce. This is why I like C. L. Poke. This is why like their writing they always find a way to blend in romance and elements and the uninspected way that you may find the relationship you need or the person that you could care about under the most hair wing and trying of circumstances and also leave you in a position where you still want to. Thwart the people who tried to tell you what to do with Joe. Damn like. So the end of this analysis, the more Beatrice's entangled with eleven siblings the hard decision becomes if she casts a spell to become a she will devastate her family and lose the only man to ever see her for who she is but if she marries even for love she will sacrifice her magic her identity and her dreams. But how can she choose one knowing? She will forever regret the path not taken. This comes out October thirteen and I cannot wait to finish reading it. I am excited I think it's going to be great I. Have Not been disappointed in any of this person's novellas yet, and I do not think I'm going to start now and that's a lot of pressure to put on author but they don't know me so it's fine again, the name of the book us and then my bargain it is by C. L. Poke and it releases October thirteen I was once again lucky enough to get. Early access to a few books this month, and there's two that I'm absolutely going to be talking about all years ring. Shout is my novell Recommendation Frock Tober thirteenth the Synopsis W. F. Griffis is a sewer and the birth of a nation is a spell that drew upon the darkest thoughts and wishes of the from the heart of America. Now, rising in power and prominent the clan has a plot to unleash hell on Earth Luckily Mary C.. Boudreau. Has a magic sword and a head full of tales when she's not running bootleg whiskey through prohibition Georgia she's fighting monsters she calls Ku Klux. She's damn good at it too. But to confront this ongoing evil, she must journey between worlds to face nightmares made flesh and her own demons together with a foul mouth sharpshooter in Harlem Hell Fighter Mary C. Sets out to save the world from the hate that would consume it. Yeah. I don't know too many authors figure out a way to peer into the dark heart and bag history of racist America without making it feel waited navy and just puts you in a place where you can't stick to the adventure. P. Jelly Clark has done that his voices accessible, the writing style and the tone everything works it will resonate with you. It will fill recognizable. His magic system is built on spiritual elements that are rooted in. Black. Culture. The book is titled Ring Shout That is on purpose yes. He is talking about an actual rings out he is managed to blend all of these Things together with the supernatural into Macabre Tale that you will not have any choice but to believe in plus there's a magic sword. So really what else do you need and my fulling novel recommendation also comes out the thirteenth and it's the future witches by Alex e Herro and eighteen 1893. There's no such thing as witches there used to be in the wild dark days. Before the burnings began but now which is nothing but tidy charms and nursery rhymes. If the modern woman wants any measure of power, she must find it in the ballot box. Okay. Not Subtle but savvy the rest says, but when the Eastwood Sisters James, Univer, Agnes Ranta, and Beatrice Bella Donna, join the savage sets in of new Salem they begin to pursue the forgotten words. In ways that might turn the women's movement into the witches movement stocked by shadows and sickness hunted by forces who will not suffer which to vote and perhaps not even to live this sisters will need to delve into the oldest magic's draw new alliances and he'll the bond between them. If they want to survive, there's no such thing is which is but there will be. Like witches, I don't care by Hook Crook somebody who manages to find a way to dig into all the mythology and the poor perspective and historical aspects of Sandwich fires and burnings, and what that meant and the way that all of that blends into what modern. Day Patriarch. Looks like as my jam now when that author is Alex Ahead. Who has away with pros that can make a story just stick in your face I'm all in. I read this book I own this book. I, will be buying this book for people. It is just pure unadulterated transportation to a whole different alternate version of world that even though it sounds like a hell of a hard time to live in if I got to be a witch and learn how to be like that, I would be about It. These three sisters are not to be messed with, and if you're looking for a tale that takes you all history on multiple levels, the one which is it. Thank you for joining me. This episode of talk shouldn't read new book Tuesday. This is what's on my shopping list or what's on its way to my house because I pre-ordered my face off, I will be back with some more recommendations, reviews and interviews, peace tranquility, and happy shopping.

Heidi Stevens (#VoteHerIn, Episode 61)

"This is vote. Her in a collaboration between two broads talking politics and author rebecca save. Our guest today is chicago. Tribune columnist heidi stevens and are ula. I everyone i am. Kelly and this is vote her in vote her in is a collaboration between two brads talking politics and rebecca size and rebecca is the author of vote her in your guide to electing our first woman president Which we very nearly did came close to you. Got the vice president's Which is amazing so we are coming at you during women's history month which is great and i am going to turn this over now to rebecca who will introduce our guest. Rebecca kelly and glad to be here every time where together but certainly during women's history month which remains a very special time. Although i should celebrate women every month every day and we always celebrate women at vote her in regardless of the month so we thought that because it was women's history month than i was thinking about the fact is i'm sure everyone has that we're you know kind of if that's the word marking This year of a very different life for everybody and One of my most favorite writers on life and what is happening and what we should be thinking about on his. Heidi siemens writes a column for the chicago. Tribune has a wonderful group on facebook. Co balancing act where she posts and discusses and we visited with heidi. I think it was last august. I and you know the world we were sort of i. Guess halfway into this pandemic But the world has changed since then with the election with all the other you know we now are getting vaccinated. I mean there's just kind of a lot going on so we thought it would be a great time to invite a heidi back and reflect on. What has happened what we can learn from what we can be inspired by so welcome. Heidi thanks for joining a voter. And again it's great to see you. Thank you thanks so much for having me around anytime honestly. Yeah so one we begin with. You might want to begin with showing us to t shirt since this. Just what be doing today yesterday. Don't we like that. Oh my god. Love christmas gift for my daughter for reagan often person and she's speaking speaking in. We're all speaking. So why don't we begin by if you would if you share some reflections may be a ha of for you during this last year. Certainly i would say an a ha moment for me. And it's maybe not a real optimistic one but but it's an honest one. I think what i realized is that we don't and we will not all come together in a time of crisis even an enormous crisis that affects every single one of us. Not you know a a crisis that sort of bound by geography or demographic group but this pandemic you know potentially in a and actually affected every one of us And you would like to believe that that would bring us all together And it it didn't and i think that was an a ha moment and it won't probably in the future But what i realized. Is that a lot of us. Come together in a crisis. And i think that that's something that we can build on honestly and do a lot of good with I was listening to an interview. One day with bryan stevenson on krista tippett's You guys have probably listen to that program I'm being an npr. And he was talking about the concept of stone catchers on. Which is this idea. That we live in a time when You know the parable let he who lives without sin cast the first stone. That's become almost quaint right but we live in this era where righteous people are not wound. Sound even they. has been Based on casper stones right and that means that we need star catchers people who will intervening and catch those stones. We have to stand in front of the people who are vulnerable. And we have to catch the stones. And i think covid was really telling in a sense of who's a stone-thrower and who's getting stones thrown anthem and who is willing to be a stone catcher and so. I think that was an aha moment for me. Not so much like. Oh gosh look at the way brought us all together but sort of like okay. Here's what we've learned And that is that a lot of us were brought together and some of us weren't and those of us who are willing to stand up and catch some stones new yea and so. Actually maybe maybe we can go from there into a another question. We wanted to talk about. Which is you know. we've been talking to a lot of women on voter. In in recent months about the sort of structural issues that impede women's progress to impede equal opportunity for women And you write a lot about these kinds of structural issues to on things like sexism and racism and classism at that you've been thinking about in your recent collins so it conservative. Draw that connection. Then things you've thought about learned about those things you know in. How does that relate to this idea of sort of who who these people are who are stone-throwers and stone catchers and and how does that relate to the institutions. We have that. Are you know putting barriers in place for people to to have progress so i wonder if you could sort of talk through that. And you know if you wanna talk about your recent column with the woody allen and dr seuss and the british royal family seems to be kind of appropriate here. Sure well. I think that is a good example because i think a lot of what were reckoning with right now is who we listen to write and who we historically have not listened to And who has been harmed by our failure to listen right and so You know the column bet that you just brought up was Really inspired by a julia. Belafonte column in the new york times about why her teenage self gave woody allen a pass and how allen versus pharaoh the hbo docu series About dylan farrow's such abuse allegations against woody allen caused ginny bellefonte to revisit manhattan in in particular which was a nineteen seventy nine woody allen film that she geneva lafontaine watch more times than she could count and loved and it really helped shape her ideals about adulthood and how she wanted to have at the world and the plot of the movie for anyone who doesn't know as woody allen is a forty two year old mandating a seventeen year old mariel hemingway and that's presented as a love story and the thing that really struck me about janie. Bill founders column was. She said that if that sort of storyline And that the widespread acceptance and celebration of that storyline A forty two year old and a seventeen year old sleeping together if that strikes us as impossible or certainly hard to imagine today. That's only because young women have stood up and said stop exploiting us In a way that no one was really willing to do on their behalf or certainly not enough people were willing to do in a way that moves the needle which just it got me thinking right about dr seuss and about the royal family and even the statues that the city is examining right now. And how important is that. We listen not just to the creators of things and the people with the most power or the loudest voices in any given system but also the people who are affected and often farms by that system or that work of art or that person that so many of us revere. So i think a lot of it comes down to back to your original question who were listening to and are we. Listening to women are we. Are we letting women's voices into the rooms and the decisions where we need them to make. Sure that Groups of of people not just women but anybody who has marginalized isn't harmed so when you talk about listening to women. I think the most striking changes in this last year you know at at every level in every context we can imagine. I wonder if you could share with us. You know there are always the famous examples and you've touched on some of that just now but in some of your columns you've written about Women who in families that have experienced some troubles and come out successfully with the help of other women and i thought it would be good for women's history. Might if you could share maybe a coupla those stories about inspirational everyday women who you happen to meet in chicago. But are everywhere. Yeah oh my gosh. So many I guess i mean. I can't not talk about the euro's planet in korea story which was Erica sanchez and her husband. Pablo castro are both immigrants colombian and guatemalan immigrants. Who open a restaurant in evanston a year before the pandemic hit and it was right by evanston township high school and so a lot of their traffic obviously relied on a lot of their customer. Base was eta. Just students and staff and the remote learning really did a number on their their business and despite that they decided they were going to get a free meals to the community that they were gonna try to feed in particular the Bax community in evanston that was suffering from food insecurity and so they committed to giving away hundred three meals a day and they did. They gave way every single day from april to december a hundred free meals a day. They would just set up a table with food. Anybody could come by and So she texted me a couple of saturdays ago and she was like you know. We're we're closing We weren't able to make the rent ann's traffic's just getting any better and so we have to close and then i said okay. Would you talk to me about that for a column. And she said sure and in that column. I added a line about the evanston activists speaking of phenomenal powerful women. Nina cave-in Who runs the deer. Evanston blog unim- Total long-shot starting to go fund me to keep us finish needed raise thirty grand and three days which who does right now in the pandemic And i threw a line in there about that. And like the community stepped up They knew that arrogant pablo had worked so hard on sacrifice so much to feed people all over evanston surrounding towns and they hit the hit thirty granted a day and nina up to the goal fifty grand and they hit fifty grand by the next day. And so here's you know. They're keeping their business open and I don't know there's that's so beautiful. And i and i have probably you know three or four other stories just like that where you know. It's there's a a woman at the center of it who's not only trying to provide for her family and use an and live out her dream right. I mean erica's dream was to run this restaurant but also to give back you know. She's also feeding the community while she's doing that and then here's marina on the side saying. Hey we gotta help her line. you know. they're in trouble. How come on in and and people answered the call and I've seen so much of that in the last year it's really bad quite hopeful and And really beautiful just to follow up on that for a minute. I think that you know it's just too often that these stories don't get as kelly was alluding to before get put in this larger context and of course in this story you just told it is You know not only are women at the center of it but women of different backgrounds right women of different classes different experiences. Was there anything that you observed that Interaction that you found particularly not where the in that respect. Well sure. I think that one of the things that mean doing in evanston is really trying to Get the town. And its residence to grapple with some historic racism and segregation and prejudices and an s. y. Often turn to her for you. Know for story ideas and And guidance and she is a jewish woman who in south america stuff. Mary south africa Who arranged this Uncomfortable journey to alabama to visit the Museum there the name is escaping me right now but the museum of racial injustice that was filled by bryan stevenson actually And brought together people of all races all different ages all different religions and they wanted to take this journey together to experience this museum together and walk across a bridge together and You know i. I think that when you embark on that kind of work proactively and intentionally that That that comes through in your willingness to help Wherever seated and the lens you look through to find where help is needed right It can be Very easy to joss move in the circles. We move in right where our kids go to school or where coworkers level where we live And i think that's another lesson from this. Pandemic is the way you're experiencing life the way you're experiencing this virus. The way are experiencing this she session because it really has. The recession has affected women. More than men Where you're experiencing. It isn't the way everyone is right. So i think we have to really work at getting outside of our bubbles and make sure were checking in on the people who don't necessarily live where we do our would likely due or it looks like we do worship like we do So i try to find those stories. When i can because you know it's my job right to cover all of chicago and what surrounds Some of it And also just makes me a better person other people too. I mean out that sort of my mission now i. I know that kelly has a question about families. And maybe we'll go to that and then i'll come back to Questions about karl malone in the bigger picture that we all have been a part of. Yeah so you write a lot about families. I am speaking with you from my dining room which has become an elementary school as you can see from artwork on The wall behind me families obviously if he's enormous challenges In the past year. And you've written a lot of bowers those challenges but also those successes the way people have have come together and chicago. Could you talk some bow that piece of this. You know where what you're seeing with families and school of course being such a big deal over the past year i in the inequities in schooling but what what are what are those stories that that sure. You're seeing that you're reflecting on. Yeah i think a huge story is You know How many women have felt compelled to leave the workforce or have been forced the work force because of a demands of you learning and You know lack of childcare during a pandemic which you know is not a thing that you can plan for. Obviously but at the same time. It's a little bunny is a nice word. I'm going to use that. We are now embracing working from home and telecommuting and meetings over zoom instead of in person and all sorts of things that mothers have been saying and not just mothers women who tend to be the caretakers in their family. Maybe they're taking care of elderly parents rather than children or you know of disabled sibling. Or you name it. Statistically it's it's the woman in family who's taking the things it that women have been pushing for a decade we just now are finally Accepting because men need them to And so that's that's there's some irony there there's also some progress there right so you know At some point you just wash your hands of why it got the way it is and and just celebrate that it it got got there So i think. I think women moms especially feel a tremendous amount of stress. Obviously a tremendous amount of guilt. I mean i think There's such pressure to keep an eye on your children's academic wellbeing mental health social lives screen time physical health. We are still trying to protect ourselves. Our families from a potentially fatal virus It in an ideal world. Mothers aren't shouldering that the by themselves. But we've read enough stories to where we know that many many of them are and You know i'd like to believe that. This could be a reset of sorts that individual level that couples or sitting down at kitchen tables or or moms or sitting down with their in laws or very nannies. Or whatever and saying like this. Didn't this didn't work. this is not okay We can't do it this way anymore. and i like to think that workplaces are doing that you That if we hit another roadblock whether it's a pandemic or something else we can't watch women leave workforce droves. i hope those conversations are happening But just in terms of like water families dealing with right. Now i would say tremendous guilt and sadness and and stress and i've i've certainly felt all of that myself and and that's with the perspective of i had colbert. I was i was. I was hospitalized with kobe I i know that my son's social studies great Is not that important in the grand scheme of things right like i have that perspective and still it keeps me up at night Am i doing not for him homework. Wise have i planned social safe mass social outings for him. Should i have him in. Some other tutoring is my daughter. Getting i mean you know it just that's membrane. If it makes you feel less guilty. My third grader managed to play hooky three times during the winter. In the same room as me doing something else on the computer. And i didn't realize it we've had that. Yeah yeah you get those from the teacher. Like oh god and you know related to this conversation about what what women had experienced. Mothers experience with other women caregivers have experienced with the election of kama harris. We have you know enormous opportunity. She has a worldwide platform. Right right to talk about these issues to make them Front and center and so. I'm wondering if you know as you think about this significance of her. Her being there can all agree that the symbol is great. But if you were whispering in her ear and sharing with her someone what you've shared here. Heidi what would you say to her about what you think. Her policy portfolio should look like what are messaging to the american public. Should look like. Yeah no. I think that's a great question. You know i moderated a panel about the you know the right that makes effect on on women in the work for send with the ceos of chicago foundation for women and women employed all these wonderful change makers in chicago rain and and we talked a lot about. They talked a lot about advocating for yourself in the workplace. But also for the women around you and the women who are gonna come after you. And i think that's a really good theme for kamala or aoc or nancy pelosi or any of these women who are in positions of power right now to remember that like you know we. We need to be pushing for an increase in the minimum wage. We need to be pushing for You know child tax credits and better childcare. Policies things that keep women in the workforce when things are running smoothly but also keep them in the workforce when things go sideways This pandemic tatis. How quickly something and go sideways. And how you think you're prepared for it and your truly not and and and that will be the two things will feed each other right so like the more women you have an office more those palaces gut Champions and the more those policies could champions the more women. You have an office so is sort of. You can't wait for water the other to happen. You've got to be working on them both simultaneously. It's like the sheryl sandberg story about like when your to google not realizing that pregnancy parking was something google should offer until she was pregnant and had to walk. You know three quarters of a mile swollen ankles across the whole giant hat. California parking lot Because you don't necessarily know you're blind spots until you know the right in front of you right And we talked a lot on that panel as well about women as employers right so of you're employing someone in your home whether that's a childcare worker or a housekeeper that you're paying them living wage that you're providing them p. p. e. You're not saying oh you can't you have asked no. Don't put that on them. Provide them a mass provide them loves. You know that little stuff like that that that your also being a good advocate and and Employer of women because statistically those most of those jobs do go to women home health. Care workers Childcare workers domestic workers. One i'm wondering when you had the panel wasn't able to attend whether there were some key messages there about you know for media for discussions like the one we're having That that for instance women employed wanting to see the vice president would out there or see if w d did you get into that aspect of it well. The machine for an increase in minimum wage was a big one I have to go back. It's we did report it so i could. I could send it to you. But i think you know a lot of it was what we as individuals could could walk away and and you and put into place and And so was things like you know being employer employee where your home modeling equitable relationships for our son's having tough conversations with our partners about a fair division of labor just making sure that were not contributing to the mass exodus of women from the workforce as sort of the default like well Daycares close orwell's so obviously mom is gonna take leave absence or obviously mom is gonna offer offramp from her career for a while To not default those decisions but to think about the long term effects of those decisions. What does that do to a woman's earning power to her retirement fund to her ability to get nominated side boards of directors. All of the things right To be in a position where you're making hiring decisions All of that stuff trickles down from the decision to pull back from work when your daycare clauses so just to be really buying phone of those decisions if there is someone else in your life who can pick up a little bit of slack so you can stay you know in your career so speaking of work and maybe we'll close on this not. Although i haven't sense that we could keep talking. I know we could but there are and we discussed this when we were together last time. There are certainly many women among our listeners. Who are interested in writing or interested in careers where they can write and speak. And i know that you gave some wonderful guidance. The last time we were together. But i think this time because the world has changed so much in this This desire persists on if you could talk about just for a minute about how you would help them prioritize what they write about has two years how to go about building your writing career as there is so much at stake right now for women as you've just been pointing out that's right. Yeah that's a great mission to you know. I'll say that one of the things. I'm trying to do always i don't always succeed but it's a it's a goal is to make sure that i'm not just writing about and talking about systems that also how those systems affect people right not just talking to authorities figures By talking to people who are impacted by the policies and actions of those authority figures. Not just talking to authors or artists but also the people were moved by may read or or saw. I think that you know. It's it's sometimes tempting to seek out the taste makers Or big names or the important People in in elected office or running a company or writing a nonprofit and turns about him for the story of a and i think that to really understood teams our communities and and the people around us We really need to talk to the people who are affected by those elected offices raid those nonprofits and those works of art. And and i try to do a lot of that not just certain goto who has an agent or who has a new book out or who just got you know like just something important but But the people who just live and work in chicago and areas kelly any final thoughts. We want to share before we say goodbye to heidi for now but not reality She's gonna tell my my favorite recent story of kamala harris which ties in to this. What we'd like her to be doing. She visited a yarn store in baltimore maryland of course i'm a knitter. And so this was big big news in the knitting community but it was her way of highlighting. A woman owned small business that was suffering in the pandemic and how they could be helped by the recovery act and And then she bought yarn for her stepdaughter who is knitwear designer and she. The yarn that she bought was yarn That's from a company that's owned by a black woman that does a lot of social justice stuff so it was just this really wonderful lake just in this little visit to a yarn store. All the good that she could showcase. I really loved that. And of course it's great. I like knitting with you all the good that we can celebrate when when you see what women can do in accomplishing and inspired by and women's history month. So i'm glad you told that story. Heidi thanks again. It was great to see you. Yeah it's been fun. We'll talk again. No doubt so. Okay perfect are i take care. Thank you thank.
