"Red team blue team which is actually implemented by both the military and journalists which i love sank because so few things you can say that about on but it's basically this technique rehab like a blue team who might do the initial research and maybe get as far as the prototype but before they go any further. You have read team come in for one day and at red team's job is to go to war with the blue team and really look for any hidden by sees any more elegant solutions Any potential causes of harm that the blue team missed because of confirmation bias. They fell in love with her first idea. And it's a fairly elegant approach. Because i don't have to tell my boss. We need to hire two teams for every project This work every day. I just need one team for one day to come in and make it a little less likely. We're going to put something harmful on the world and again it's that we have introducing that outside perspective because the red team has no stake in this at all right. They have not seen the work of looting. They haven't been living and breathing this project every day for a month. That's like i'm just looking at this with fresh eyes. I mean it's really not that different from the concept design critique right which were used to in the world of of You accident experience design. It's just a matting. A little bit layer of ethics rights and hopefully from the people net red team are from a group that might be impacted by that design rights. Or we're getting a little bit. You know we're broadening the definition of what critiquing but it's still the same basic concept that you know. Ten is better than five as product managers. We're responsible for so much but often have good authority. And that can be tricky. But that's where the power of influence comes in. It's one of.

"Can we talk a bit about some of the authors. Who are maybe a little less expected. Just just maybe a quick overview of some. i'm thinking especially if sifi Of literary modernism not just chronological modernity and and also kind of the modern realist novel. Yeah he was very interested in sinclair. Lewis's work yeah he. He said that he had read. All of sinclair lewis's work Any even singles out The novel babbitt as having an influence on the creation of hobbits draws a parallel between the character of abbots and the character of the habits end sinclair. Lewis is about as far from what you would expect tolkien to be enjoying as you can imagine. It's total straight up american satiric literary realism It's very very very different from anything. That the inklings wrote ops sinclair lewis As you know what he read and enjoyed a lot of science fiction he names. Isaac asimov as a favor author He admired the work of h. g. wells even though he differed from his religious views. Very definitely laser Enjoyed ray bradbury on s. Another science fiction author. That saw that he read a and then he thought he took quite seriously the work of the modernists. So for instance he took notes on james. Joyce's finnegans wake the several pages of notes where he engages with. What's joyce's doing. I'm even transliterated the name analytic plora rebel into elvis. He's interested in want joyce's doing with the stream of consciousness now. He doesn't entirely approve of what joyce is doing but he takes it seriously. He gauged with thoughtfully And this by the ways in contrast to see us lewis who just dismissed out of hand and didn't want to think about at all token were with elliott. Yeah he really engages with it. I'm gertrude stein is another author that we know that He he at least a little bit. He mentions her in those notes So those are some of the modernists he seems to have had kind of cautiously positive view of t s eliot We don't know really much his reaction but he was sowed when elliott died and then of other authors that he liked the more modern people for instance dylan thomas. I turned up the fact that he thought very highly of dylan thomas. The poet could not. How could he not like deal. Dylan thomas i mean come on. Well he is. He is a more modern Figure just on the sonic level. You know well exactly. I mean this is just so fascinating that he liked him. He also He likes the the modern poet. Roy campbell who wrote very realistic verse about france of the spanish civil war. So there's a lot of figures that you know. We wouldn't necessarily expect him to like that. He did like very much. He really he very much liked where campbell's poetry and other ones he was interested in that. Yeah.

"And now David is released the sign for cognitive bias through a book reports. Now I don't think we've actually had a full on episodes about calling device before. Know it's about time because we reference bias all the time I think yeah, we've. We've heard episodes about dark patterns. We've we've had. Episodes about persuasion. But you're I think we've just mentioned biases over the years. Yeah, it'll be interesting to get a deep dive now. Your book exploded for four chapters. What is biased use a bias stakeholder bias and euro buys but I think just like you do in the book, a good place to start is. What is bias. So bias is basically series of shortcuts. Your mind is taking just to get through the day life. You have to make something like a trillion decisions day. Even right now, I'm making decisions about how fast talk whether or not to look at the to make sure it's still recording what's do with my hands and if I had to think carefully about every single one of those decisions, I'd never get anything done. So it's actually a good thing that your mind is mostly on autopilot, but sometimes the shortcuts leads errors and we call those errors species. So I know if I'm skipping almost to the end of the book. You have this reflection about. So we put on different classes, their name, the the different glasses mean you're thinking in a different way, but we also keep forgetting that we have glasses always on whenever we come into a room when we're about to record a podcast when I'm about to ask a question, my glasses are on all the time I mean, is it even possible to avoid these mine shortcuts as you call them? Not, even a little bit. So the whole glasses thing there's there's an effect called the framing effect and it's in my opinion, one of the most dangerous species in the world and the reason is. the the basic the basic effect just explain it is. Let's say you at a supermarket and you see a sign that says, beef ninety, five percent lane and next to it assigned its be five percent fat. People might be drawn to the ninety five percent lean. But it's the same thing I've just framed in a way. We're one seems more appealing, and so once you understand that by might think to yourself. Oh, I..
Jonathan Pryce, 'The Two Popes'
"There's a movie now that you can see a Netflix. It's called the two popes and it stars my guest today. Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Living Hopkins. Playing guess what the title characters doing doing it brilliantly. So Jonathan Welcome Creek Pope Francis there. You are the big news now. About Pope Francis is his encounter with this woman in the crap out there where he sort of slapped her hand. Yeah Yeah have you been being asked this question now would I please slap really. Okay do I WANNA be grant. At the Golden Globes. There was a lot of Grabbing and pushing polling I was tempted to slap but I feel really sorry for him because people aren't seeing the whole whole sequence video where that particular woman grabbed him very yanked him yanked him and he's He's an Obama scientists bound to hurt. Well let's talk about the two popes in terms of the whole concept of you being offered this to play the The Argentinian Paul. Because we don't see him in the movie being the pope really walk up to that while Anthony Hopkins is playing Pope Benedict German. is you're an Argentinian to Welshman playing these. Yeah somebody must've said. That's that's what we need is to Welshman to do this time for Welsh. Pope was watching and watching. You play this. I kept thinking this other. Argentinian you play. which was one there? You are the dictator in a way. Pope can be a dictator but Pope Francis Go. You is the liberal reform. The one that wants to give them more compassionate look at the church. Did you have any trepidation about pilots. Just just just the usual about whether I wanted to do any of. Is that how you approach them. All Walk Negative. Say No no I thought uh I thought I'd be on a hiding to nothing representing this particular pope. But that didn't last very long. I read the script and won ten. You that Fernando Morella Morella was gonNA be directing it. I definitely wanted to do it and I think it was mainly to do with the fact that I'm not religious logistics. I was brought up in the Christian faith. I went to church until I was a teenager. but I found that this pope was the first pope who I thought was speaking to me and millions like me about issues that what. Mrs Narrowly to do the Church or organized religion but to do with politics and to do with speaking out up folding environment and about the economy about the injustice is the during the world so I he was someone for great empathy towards towards and help. That looked like him a bit and I walk like came definitely Even though you've got ten years on me you could sneak into the the Vatican may be busy and just an take over there and do what you would need to do there. Does that give you a feeling when your plane that that this was what I would do if I win. The pope shoes. I wouldn't be so presumptious to fix that but I'm glad he's doing what he's doing And obviously he's got. There's the whole church and Vatican side of things which he doesn't seem to be able to deal with those conquer but when you're constantly reading lots of stories about how he's disliked within the Vatican because he's a reformer and people don't want that change and I think that's that's why he became pope. He was be made pope in order to make these changes. Otherwise so why choose him because he was in the never been an odd uh-huh latin-american Pope and the film implies of that we don't necessarily know the truth. That benedict wanted Bagogwe uglier to be the next pope because he saw in him things that he could not even he couldn't do he saw in many ways his opposite didn't they and this is it. I didn't mention this in the introduction but benedict was a pope who retired. WHO said I'm not going to do it anymore? And so we have to popes who Are Alive in this world today and they're the clips at the end of the real popes in seeming tab. Having a really terrific time when I sold the first Kata film I was bit disturbed. They were showing the real popes at the end of the phone. Because I thought it would invalidate everything. We've been doing for the previous to house. But what you see in these two men is a is a the committee this just a welcoming the way they they greet each other with great affection and you can see the respect. They have for each other and far from taking away from our performances it they it enhances. It gives an element of truth to what we were doing. It's a really terrific script. Ns Two popes one of these two guys talking to each other which sometimes scares people when they go to the movies. I want that but yet a mirage as a director makes this movie move. You've so beautiful to gorgeous thing to look at. It's also sometimes. Polaris that's going on. Did you all know that that was what was going to happen before he did it. No no what's what's wonderful about. The film is that it It's such a surprise for audiences once don't you don't you. You gotta get them in there and then once they're in that It's a surprise Because it's it's much funnier than I ever expected. And and the audience expect and I think the way we made the film there was no. We didn't have many preconceptions. I don't remember ever talking onto Tony. I'm going to be like this. And he said I'm going to be like this and finance and I want you to do this. That and the whole process was really organic bound because we have the the strength of that script bit underneath his you know holding us up and when I saw it and the way Fernando put it together other because he says his work starts in the editing room he lets us do what we want and encourages us to go certain ways but when I they do what they want to that yeah good directors do that they let you think your your your coming up with the Serving quietly feed and things in your ear they let you think it's your idea So when I saw it I didn't know it was going to be so funny. Rondo humorous. I mean that first scene of your character trying to book his own plane reservations on the fault. Yeah probably apparently did that. That's what he did but it's the post game I saw with a big audience was telluride. And because you I don't know what to expect and that moment the right at the beginning of the phone web the audience laughs as one. The huge wave of laughter. You can feel the audiences sir. I sent me sat by a few. And they're going to enjoy this and the you can feel the audience sitting back and saying this. This is going to be okay you can. It's like Yep okay you know bring it on make happen and yet it also doesn't avoid the controversies that exist within the church. Now the whole thing with the problem priests they're predators that are there and also their histories. Can you talk a little about his history. Go Yeah it back in the seventies in terms of Argentina. It's all mostly. It's all in the film and we didn't shy away from it. The way were applauded and thanked thanked by the people people in Bonus Iris. When they sold the film we had a screening because they that fear was this is going to be a whitewash elma? Crossover Haggi Auger fear Goglia. Because he is still seen as a divisive character in Argentina because of his perceived involvement involvement with the cardinals. I've found on Youtube footage of him being interrogated by or question by his peers fellow cardinals about his involvement with the colonels. And you see a very different man the man you see smiling on the balcony. And he's made pope he's he's he's very doer he's quite angry. I think he's impatient. He's drumming his fingers on the table. And I put that image together with talking to a Jesuit priest and bonus. Who worked with him? I who said they didn't like him. He was Very always stays. Ah Stay by himself. He didn't mix I he was he never smiled. I'm when they saw him on the balcony. This smiling pope. They didn't recognize him because he was smiling. Didn't person yeah. But then you do get the other side of him where he is in the film you see him Saying mass and the kind of the slum township areas and and the other side's members very popular so it's not a a a bio-pic it's not a huggy overview of this man. It's a it's a Watson Study of him and I think we've been fair to him because we all respect him and admire him And we had a screening in Rome three or four weeks ago were members of the Vatican Cambridge theory and They said they liked liked. That enjoyed it And a particular Cardinal WHO's a friend? WHO's a friend of Love Benedict and of Francis He'd liked the phone very much. Fernando the director said. Do you think we were too hard on the church. And he said you went hot enough woo but he also said that he thought France would like the film and he wanted the DVD to take them to show him the film. I love so That review see that. Yeah well what do starts right. Yeah that'd be good and also from France's family in Argentina. Fernando got an email to say that they'd seen it. They enjoyed the film and they liked. What we've done Representing their uncle. That was that was really nice. Colon uncle Uncle Horace to two years. How were you and Anthony Hopkins together? You know. You haven't made anything or done anything before. Really WE'VE BEEN ON A. We're both on the recording of under milk. Wood the Dylan Thomas Poem that was produced by George Martin. Twenty seven years ago the Beatles producer and Tony was first voice. I was second voice and you come twenty seven years later. We're in Rome and the coal sheet has You know you're rated as the importance in the film. The number and I was number one and Tony was number two so it was my revenge after twenty seven audit your greet each other even morning with morning number one number two. It went on from there but we. It's interesting the what happens to the two men in the film is reflected. Did what happened to Tony. And I because you know in the film you see two men sort of sniffing around each other like a pair of dogs like where each other Eh Wary of Tony but I was. I was I I'm an aura of Tony Hopkins. I'm a great admirer of his. So I'm not played late into those early scenes and as you see the pope's relationship growing so my friendship with Tony grew and It is the equivalent of both of us. All of US tangoing together by the end of it. That's a good way to put out.

"Sell depending on what happens with Arizona so keep your eyes out for that one probably hot takes although honestly. It's going to be the hottest thing I say on here. Hottest takes out would be Christian. McCaffrey now saving. Your gas are coming out. We I know right while. Oh but okay here. Here's my thought on Christian McCaffrey. He's going to be really good. Really good for a while right. But if you want your maximum value reselling selling Christian McCaffrey. Now is the time to do it. After you WanNa Championship right. Technically the situation can only get worse. I'm sorry I can't see him really tops like this year. I'd be insane. This is probably his career. So I don't know I I another blow you away. But I mean The cursor McCaffrey tight. That's honestly something that I've also been thinking about a lot how to value the the height. The outbreak seasons where you have who saw your best players out of position especially at a position so injury prominent so volatile now as running back if you take a look at the past couple of years some of the highest. Traffic's include Lebanon. Bow David Johnson. We've had todd Gurley hold on have really just fallen off a cliff. A shelf life for running back is not very long and we've seen when teams paid their start running backs that often they don't do so. Well I mean we had that with the cowboys underperform as tracks -tations the jets have been awkward. What Lebanon Bell Cardinals David Johnson doesn't even play for many snaps anymore. I mean I feel like Christian McCaffrey matches. It's so tough to sell him after what's happened. But I think that if you can get peak wide receivers peak wide receivers Are always a claude. I'd love to have dynasty because I feel like being able to draft running backs in rookie drafts are a lot easier to gas on than it is to draft the wide receiver because running back situations are often more cut in stone. You know if you have a competent running back who's going to be meeting by backfield already but in wide receivers you just have so much depth at that position that there's always going to be other guys. It's a more volatile position and and wide receivers just last a lot longer. So I feel like if you can pick up guys like Michael Thomas Good Dynasty wide receivers devers and get a bit more extra value on top of that. I think that signs. EMC is actually a a pretty viable idea. And something. I've been thinking. Yeah about Zaire really appreciate you talking about that because Tau crazy to my own mind but during someone else talk about that is actually pretty interesting. Stuffy scary to do The only time I think where you're going to sell Christian McCaffrey. Once he signed an extension So I don't know I I mean if you really want the highest value for Sam see I mean you gotta sell them after the season outright saying solemn for cheap you get king's ransom let's see you get like three. Need a four twenty twenty. I probably more like four twenty twenty. I three fourth. You know what I mean like you could drive yourself I I've been talking a lot about twitter. Her about this draft class. You could get yourself. Maybe a Jonathan Taylor swift maybe A CD Lamb Jalen raigmore. And maybe they could take a dobbins or you know what what I mean like you could get like a lot of return there and those four guys could end up being like a couple wide receiver one running back one running back to unlike a wide receiver to receiver one. You know what I mean like you can get so much value that you could set up yourself from winning a championship with EMC and to Sri transitioning into setting a dynasty the next decade shower. High I W I agree with that. So that's pretty much it I I forecast Do you have any project show organic than you want to mention. Definitely so if you guys want to follow me at twitter Definitely follow me on twitter. I'm starting to get active. They're necessary. I'm home for winter break from college. So that's at Decay Tom. Two thousand eighteen. So so. That's at de que. Tom Teach 'em two thousand eighteen. Just the numbers Just hit eight hundred followers tonight. That's really excited as for her projects. Coming up before we started doing here I started scripting when the next dynasty nerds video And you know what I'm GonNa give. You specialties specialties are about that on. I'll be talking about two players and one of the players That I'll be talking about. We talked about here was AJ Brown. So there's GonNa be another. The player in the video will be for a two for one.

"An in. Yeah Robbie Lost Week disappointed in a major. She did not. He didn't discipline major way. But crowder was the one town last week and end I think with crowder's target share a probably the in crowd does your but don't want to stir anyone in the jets is team is greater than competence. I think defenses in play because when you're going in stock hodges good things to happen for your defense on movie it'll be onto the next game this one a lot. Better One saints. Titans Hi over under in this game what do you think about Alvin Kamara. Mr Because Alvin Kamara has been Difficult players for for Fassi players to draft seeing him continually be disappointed disappointment. Demint what do you think about Kamara especially his long term outlook dynasty outlook stuff like that. I'm going to start off with Kamera specifically from this week. Fun Fat Christian. McCaffrey said fifteen touchdowns since week. Three Camara has had zero touchdown since week three. So he might actually got a touchdown this week because that positive regression is probably going to hit in a big way. It's like a Hitler week seventeen or in the playoffs but I could definitely see Him getting a touchdown it's not like the best match up but you're probably starting tomorrow as for like a dynasty outlook the listen. This was an outcome that I don't think people should have expected to happen but it was one that could happen right. Chimeras always been one of who is running back kind of in a committee so he has less guaranteed touches than we're seeing. When he doesn't score the touchdown at that saint touchdown rate? We've seen him these past two years. His value kinda hinder spot. I think he is the first positive touchdown regression either this year or next year I've seen some people say always going to be a third round pick and redraft. The Dynasty League started off. So I'm like no that's extreme value. Kamara I definitely try to buy him especially if the boss this week because if there's any league championship owners out there they're gonNA remember that Camaro down so I like Kamera I think he's going to be really good. Some other people might be scared of him but Let you down this year with the injury. And all. But I'd go by Camaro for me if Kalra even sniffs around ADP. Like I'm going to take a one to turn. Definitely I mean Kamara we knew the Renewal Negative T- regression could come last year eighteen touchdowns Dinnie employed the whole season. He played fifteen games so bad. Just completely unsustainable rainy a specially given the fact that he was in committee in the preseason. I saw the another reason why touchdowns could go down is latavius Marie because Latavius Murray. He is a worse running back Mark Ingram by in the red zone his very high usage one very competent in one end Latavius Murray has been able to make an impact in the red zone. I believe he has Six touchdowns this year so it's Kinda takeaways on Komo ours. Lopsided there and especially the usage even murray isn't necessarily scoring Orange Lodge touchdowns he is taken away from some of those Red Zone Carey's this year last twelve games last season because he's only played twelve games. This season due to injury injury yet. Fifty one receptions. This season has sandy three percent receptions as more carries a season his efficiency. I mean. It's it's still fairly high this season four point like mid for a four yard per carry so. I think that the main thing is just touchdowns because it's touchdowns are down from eighteen over the whole last season two two this year both them in the same game. So yeah I think Kamara Za dynasty by right now and this week I would still continue. Start him because until positive. Td Regression heads. I mean you have to continue starring. Kamara feud made this as far. You have a strong surrounding team. I think Kamara is definitely a good start this week especially NPR formats. Eichel Thomas. This archives skipped him. Because you're you're definitely benching Michael Thomas at this stage in Championships you're of course benching Michael Thomas but breeze breeze in play on Cook is also a very good start at the tight end position. He's been very good over the past couple weeks. Obviously had that concussion chanted His really nice game. He had two receptions sixty four yards. I believe in two touchdowns instantly left the game but still produce just welfare. Fancy last week had nine PBR points at tight end position. which I mean isn't amazing? But you'll definitely take that ask ask for titans jerk. Henry has had a hamstring injury. That kept him out. Thursday practice after being limited on Wednesday. What do you think about Derrick Henry are are you still firing up against this tough saints run defense given his injury and what about Ryan Tannehill? 'cause that's our guy that a lot of people have varying opinions upon this week. Definitely for justifiable reasons. I think they're Tannahill but crafted their academy. I believe he did practice in full today and I believe he is expected to suit up for their match. Watch up against the saints. So it's still not the greatest match but derrick. Henry has been so so good. This year You know he's not really traditional kind of running back in some some people were down on him. I own them more lease than I thought I did. And he's been killing so I mean if he's playing. I feel like you have to start by keeping mind. There is that risk that he could get pulled mid game which just always like the worst especially during championship week as for Tannehill I mean him. Nha Brown have been killing it right. H Brown is GONNA get probably I believe my friend jetpack. La Oh tweeted this out Probably Marshon Lattimore should follow him shadow him so it's going to be really interesting to see you. Aj broncos overcome that because Ha Brown has been Really producing well and that's been helping tannahill our obviously right because of once producing loosing the others going to produce right kind of like a one there. So I mean Jonah Hill. You probably playing. I'm starting to Aaron Rodgers in a League which I never thought I'd say. Hey if you ask me about three months ago but Ryan Tannehill has saved the titans offense. It's completely. They had a turnaround. It's been really incredible. I think basically the same way there so we can move on to the next game panthers. Colds Panthers Have Been News. There is world will greer is going to start over this week so this year. Oh yeah that's really interesting. Yeah this really impacts the panthers receiving core are harming. Obviously you're starring. CNC But what do you think about Dj more. Because I feel like Curtis Samuel was more of a fringe. Anyway this can make you slide. Keble overran but you has been incredible for fancy these past few weeks and he's been darling dynasty communities while so what do you think think about starving Dj mortgages week most certainly dynasty. Darling I love. Cj More to really not going to get touchdown upside with DJ more and we'll agree as a little scary just because we haven't seen before so could he go out and like rocket like to lock. Actually has you know really like surprise. Some people was kind of that day to quarterback. Or you know or we're going to get A Kyle but worse right. We really don't know what the Hell Greatest Hecker is. He's GonNa do. Excuse me so it's GonNa be really interesting to watch Jay Moore. You're starting them now. I mean the colts is not really a shutdown corner there so he should feast on that. So I'd be confident. Sorry more but is going to be a lot of areas in the match up as one of my questions based on a team looking for an pont on DJ more PBR DJ. More or Cooper Capri this week. I'm GonNa Chase the guaranteed targets I think. TJ Jay Moore is going to be in line for more targets at sucks because like cooper cop should really be the one to get more targets. But what's going on with Cooper cop like why isn't he been playing all these naps. It's still kind of confusing me. So as I just feel like you know what I mean because of availability is one of the most important things. And if Cooper cops cops not there for all the snaps obviously he's going to have a lower floor and lower ceiling. Dj More so more a little more safe but cup could ball out to brochure. Definitely sign that. I've been considering law as now. I think I still have cups lauded in because last week is snap percentages went up to ninety s again a quick. They're twelve personnel. They did that per week or so. So Stop in nearby denies he argument for DJ more. I mean he's been absolutely incredible dynasty wide receiver one. A lot of people I boy while dicey wide receiver one of the wider one of the wide receiver wants on the cold side of the ball. Martin Mac I mean whenever a team goes against the panthers. You're probably starting running running back. I mean just imagine seek going on the panthers. Zombie like have time for draftkings to move the pricing up tied. Eleven in Twelve K died private if he is going against the panthers. Mac is in a great spot. I think you could definitely start him. There Hilton been fairly disappointing this year. Not only dangerous but lack of production. So what do you think about Elton. Because I think thank the Hilton is more risky flex by this week helmsmen really kinda risky always alike all season to be honest. I remember when You Know Jacoby percent. I came to the team though Helms kind of a conversational piece there because Obviously the played a whole season together. Four retired and just Jacoby Anyway hold both in one thousand yards together. It was a little bit under in Helton's kind of been mad this year. It hasn't been healthy And he's also going to get to Jackson on him WHO's a very fast corner and I wonder if they double Hilton. And then I'll just remove remove help from the game so I'm probably men with some of these people like Mike Boone. Out there you know they Andre Washington's I could see a world where you don't really need to play to where I prefer kind of these weird kind of niece names over hill for sure are there Ha- that hymns more risky play as I said about colds. Defense is a good start against will greer. They definitely DAFNA. Have your defense number. One upside Gold's have been a fairly good defensive unit this year in real football looking for data transfer over on the bengals on the dolphins next match-up Bangel side think it's fairly simple. You Starting Tower Boyd. And you're starting Joe Mixing Dink. That's pretty much it anyone you want to add on the bengals side. And what do you think about the dolphins. And it's magic marker for the Bangles Probably the more appealing fantasy team. Just because you have guys like Joe Mixon out there who is probably the best star out of all these guys. He tore the Patriots and there could defend some happily ballot. Check or Tom Brady. One of the to call them the best running back in the league so and he's been performing a lot better latter half of the season. So Nixon started Tyler Boyd. I'm starting League Kinda terrify but his numbers with the Dolon haven't been bad they haven't been really great. You raise kind of one of those safe floor. Picks a floor pick The match ups really Tyler.

editor she had wanted to be fiction editor at just nineteen years old plath had already published poems and won awards Mademoiselle published some of the top writers of its day Dylan Thomas Tennessee Williams Truman capote but instead of selecting editing short stories plan throats fashioned blurbs including one praising the versatility of sweaters I think plath found her self suddenly embedded in this fashion and beauty industry and she's become part of this vast propaganda machine that woman's women into objects and she wanted to be the subject of her own life she didn't want to be the objective someone else's life so I think that contributed to her sense of disillusion that summer suddenly it was her job to kind of objectify women bio green they were promoting it for fall title green with black bio green white bio green with Nio green it's kissing cousin fashion blurb silver and full of nothing sent up there fishy bubbles in my brain they surfaced with a hollow pop but it isn't just the limitations of fashion and magazines that got to plant she was also troubled by the limitations placed on women in the nineteen fifties even in New York City that place of possibility I made a point beating so fast I never kept the other people waiting who generally ordered only chefs salad and grapefruit juice at one point in the bell jar she says everyone in New York to reduce PAS not trying to reduce plath has an enormous appetite is her actual appetite was legendary she wants emptied out hosts refrigerator before a dinner party but she had an appetite for everything you know she wanted to be the best writer she wanted to so I'm close she wanted to raise honeybees you went to make her own honey and she just wanted it all can women have it all it's a question still asking it had just started to come up in the nineteen fifties when women who've done the whole rosie the riveter thing during the war were now expected to be homemade occurs again even though many thrived in the workforce and developed real professional aspirations it was an ongoing discussion within society about whether women could do three things at once dying Johnson got married one month after the gas ownership Mademoiselle the summer had changed her and given her a greater sense of what her life could be but then she had four children within the span of six years so I was home with these little kids but they had naps and that's when somebody said why don't you the novel about something that you can do during nap time you know that's the way things evolve house of naptime Johnson has since written more than a dozen books and been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Plath during a man who would support her as a writer was a major anxiety when she wrote about extensively in her journals in the Bell Jar Esther Greenwood reflection in her sort of boyfriend a medical student at Yale who everyone told her was such a good guy I also remembered Buddy Willard saying innocent minister knowing way that after I had children I would feel differently I wouldn't want to write poems anymore so I began to think maybe it was true that when you were married and had children it was like being brainwashed and afterward you went numb as a slave in some private totalitarian state a few years later plath thought she found a man who would not brainwash her as a graduate student at Cambridge she met fellow poets Ted Hughes who she married in Nineteen fifty sex both enjoyed growing reputations as writers when they were interviewed by the BBC's Owen Leeming in nineteen sixty one you'll have to give the impression that Oh you spend your whole Mary lives thinking poems and reading to each other I think our domestic life is is practically indistinguishable from all the people who live around I'm not the only main difference is that Ted doesn't go out to work at nine and come home at five he retires about nine to to his room and and works but I certainly having a life just like all the other housewives and mothers district shopping dishes and taking care of the baby in four so for Hughes Writing was a fulltime job a career but plath was a wife and mother who happened to write perhaps like Johnson during nap time plath was actually writing the bell jar at the time of that interview she alluded to it when she was interviewed again the next year this time by the BBC's Peter or he asks plath if there are particular themes that she's interested in exploring and he rambles off this list of ingredients that she's baked right into the bell jar Robert lulls poems about his experiences in a mental hospital for example interested very much these peculiar private and to move subjects it's I feel have been explored in recent American poetry I think particularly the poorest and Sexton who writes also about her experiences I always wanted to write the long short story I wanted to rise Nawfal now that I have attained shall I say a respectable age and have had experiences I feel much more interested in pros in the novel I feel that Plath published the bell jar under a pseudonym because she was so worried about offending the people she fictionalized as characters in it one of those characters was her editor at Mademoiselle who she called JC in the Bell Jar JC asks esther what she wants to do after college and suddenly she draws a blank unable to list off for am visions of being a professor writer or an editor and a writer. I've always thought I'd like to go into publishing I tried to recover thread that might lead me back to my old bright salesmanship I guess what I'll do is apply at some publishing house you ought to read French and German.

And opposite the Half Moon is the B two to two better known as milk would road. And whether this was enough to make you think he'd seen this road and named his playoff threat Underwood. I'm not sure.
