"Show him gain McCarty with J stamen, And this was just a game of you can tell that Richland they had this a little bit more experience in the girl results old grow at some point throughout the game ended up they still they started in eighth grader and ended up having four freshmen can come off the bench. They only have one lone senior in what was my a Buffalo who finished the game with four points. You just looking and you could just tell it was one of those games where as whether it's a game by game basis or not. The Grovers played very hard. Don't get me wrong there. They just struggle that putting the ball in the bucket is what it is. They get their shots up. It's just a matter of the accuracy of the shots, essentially, and they a lot of them are just rattling around the room and just not falling down for him. Yeah. I mean, it's just one of those things where I mean, like you saw the young lady Sammy the net come in, and she had a number of three point attempts in the second half, and she finally got a mid range to go down. I know my about float. She I had her down at 78 rebound, Shana with four points. But a lot of those put back attempt she had. She's unable to really get set and get a good shot up on on the glass. So, um, it's just kind of I wouldn't actually call it a skill thing. I think it's an experience thing. So as they play more basketball and become more experienced players, I think this Oak Grove team as I was going to improve, as as time goes by, so They got They got beat by a team that that was really led by kind of some more veteran type players. They got a couple juniors that we're leading them, Um, see you, junior one senior. And then, of course, the eighth grade of the came in, um and I had a lot of Schmidt with nine points and seven boards and that's all kind of coming in in the second quarter. Maybe midway through the third and then a little bit in the fourth quarter as well. So she only played maybe you know, half not even half of the game and minutes wise and she made a big impact. But you know what? I'm just really, really impressed with Megan Rube the way she was able to kind of control that offense. Knock down some perimeter shots. She only missed one free throw at the free throw. And so she was able to get to the free throw line. She did a lot of things. Well, tonight she checked a lot. She checks a lot of the boxes. You wanted a basketball player. Um So I was really impressed with her play tonight. I was as well and she is one of those. She's a 5 19 regard for the Richland colds, and I was very impressed with her composure and ball handling skills. I mean, you're talking. It doesn't matter. Class A or Class B level of North Dakota for girls basketball. The composure and control that she had been running an offense and being able to whether it was, you know, driving up court. There's a full court press me and put on. So what she does in order to lose the defender. She goes behind her back. The defender looks loses the ball for a split second, she goes from left to right once it goes behind her back, and then she's off the races transition, blocking our funding a wide open, whether it's a new Elena Smith. On Elena Schmidt and Emma Hey, in just somebody of that sorts, or Riley Hendrickson what she's able to find these openings because she gets pressed full court and then somebody once she gets by them has to pick her up. And all the sudden you went from what was her in the back court and a five on five to her in the front court on a five on four and she's gonna make something happen cause she's an explosive player, and she it's a really nice assist to Schmidt. Stream. It did a really nice job of not only being able to make herself available for those passes from room. But Schmidt also showed that she's got a nice touch in a nice feel for the game to find some of her roommates, where she had one of the really nice pass to Emma Han for a bucket earlier in the game, So you know just some really nice pieces there for the Richland Colts. And I really like what? This Is this core? Could do you know as we go down the rest of this season in into the future, So you know, I don't always want to get all the way down down tears from years down the road. But you know what You see, today is a starting point for what you know, could be there tomorrow..

"You have a very unique story about how you broke into writing so this is your first year on south of a shut right. Yeah Yeah So. I'm so happy I basically I was doing a lot of comedy in college and live. Comedy Improv Sketch. All of that kind of stuff and I thought that I wanted to maybe write for TV and I moved to New York after a graduating from Oberlin a couple of years ago and I moved to New York and I thought that maybe I would get an assistant job a TV show and sort of worked my way into a writer's room that way which is how a lot of people do it you know. They're I the show runners assistant on the writers than the writer. And so I actually gotten this job to the executive producer show called the good wife and I was a really bad assistant so I laughed. We parted ways after a season and I decided that I was just GonNa do live work day job and do you live comedy and performance much as I can could and kind of cross my fingers and hope that something would happen until I was performing a lot writing my own material. Doing stand up Improv. And then a manager saw me at performing literally in a basement and signed me and then sent me to an agent who also signed me and then I was actually auditioning allot admitting for writing jobs. Sometimes but I was really doing more acting which is what most of my credits are acted on Mazel and the indicating movie late night and a couple of other things. Who's getting you? Those acting jobs mix of my manager and my agent and then they sent me an audition for Dickinson for the first season and got it and I was apart on Dickinson. That recurred so I was on set for six months most days and I got really close with the with the creator of the show Elena Smith and she asked for some writing samples and then hired me to write on the second season. Yes yeah it was. It was A. I have read like every comedians autobiography and tried to figure out how they got tour they were and none of them said this way. And I mean that's one we've had a podcast every rider we brought to an event like this. Everyone is different way breaking in like I think probably becoming an assistant working your way up is the most common varies said to be a common one but everybody has a different story so on Dickinson. And the Raiders. Room said there were two writers who were assistance last year. Yes or yeah. So there was the resistant from the previous season and the script coordinator from the previous both got bumped up staff writers. And how big is the writer's room they're five of US which is slow. And so the order is ten episodes. Yeah and so did everybody gets right there on a visit. Yeah everybody. You're at their own episode. Some people wrote to and then some writers that we're not there for the entire writer's room came into sort of freelance certain episodes. I and which episodes you right so I wrote episode three of the second season so it won't be out for a year or something but you were telling us in class at the process was pretty extreme that you wrote it very quickly. Yeah so so. Basically rewrite as a room outlined together as a room and then You sort of take that outline and go home and add your own spin on it and punch it up and clean it up and then you come back together and you revise those outlines again and then you take that revis outline and right your episode and I got the terrifying e mail from showrunner which was semi what you have so far. I was writing my epicenter relief in it. Like you know that. If you're not too far long it doesn't have to be word right right. It could have been bad. I mean that's maybe why she was asking me because I was a first time. Safran dot it's going to be bad and so I wrote it in two days and then I sent it to her. I don't know if she knows that. Okay Okay and so. This is the first time you ever wrote a script that was going to be produced does do think it's changed your writing at all. The first question is your show episode. Three it has not been produce yet where we shot okay. Have you seen cut? Yeah well thanks. Yeah and I mean sufferers. Don't always get to be on set when their show is being shot. You're an actress so may snuck your way again. So what was it like being on set for an episode of that you have written like working with the crew and the other actors and just hearing your words by Yeah. It was really cool. It was funny. They they actually asked me if I want to sit in on meetings prior to my episode being shot to sort of like listen to see how they're planning everything and then I because I had to be on set for another episode. I couldn't join any of those meetings. So and the and I found it was a similar thing on set mostly. I was in front of the camera but there are a couple of times. Where costumes would come up to me. And they would be like literally you know. What do you like more this ring or this necklace for this character and I I was so used to being you know. Ask Ask my showrunner. And they're they're like no sh she sent us to you know Am like decisive but I just don't WanNa step on anyone's terrorist but yeah I was like the ring. Obviously and it was really. It was really cool. I mean this episode is one of our more Comedic episodes and so it was always pretty fun to shoot just because people are having a good time. We're cracking each other up. You know we're trying new things different choices and it felt like I don't know really just like a good hang mostly I also I didn't even mention this in the class but another thing happened with my episode where Tim Cook. Whose like the CEO of Apple wanted to sit in card table reads and and we were. I think we are on track to read episode two or something. That's where we were in our in our schedule and then his team requested bed. We read three my episode so I also had a lot of confidence I would say going into powerful man in the world on your first correct overlord. We did come in and sit on the yeah and was he. Did he bring it on Roche? Yeah he was literally surrounded by other tall men. I was ushered in an ushered out and did not say anything. He said he liked to this one character ship and that was wow and I guess not like to Apple. Tv would be over. I mean it would have been a problem. If he didn't like it weirdly. I felt a lot of pressure and nobody else seem that worried. So ask me amazing. Wow this and I WANNA make sure to go back and forth. So do you all have questions about about anything? We've said so far about Sophie's career in general time for yourself to writer watchdog questions about when you raid. How you ray process. Yeah it's a great question it it's changed over the years also like as my schedule has changed a think When I was working a day job and doing comedy at night and auditioning also when I could and submitting for stuff I would write sort of whenever I could and I would write mostly like live live things for me to perform and then work on sort of like one big project every couple of months oh or screenplay or a musical sometimes electorate musicals and now that have a little more. My time was a little bit more my own because I can. I dedicate all my time to just the creative staff I do sort of trion sets out at set aside time not set time every day like wake up at eight. Am To right or anything. I'm also not a morning person but definitely I like to get at least like an hour and here to work on whatever working on and now it's a little more focused because I am a writer so sometimes obviously when I was writing for the show it was writing on Dickinson. But now it's like a working on other projects that people are working on with.

"When those rights are protected because of the fact of their sex is involved in the situation that has a conflict based on someone else whose rights are protected based on their self perception of their gender in other words if discrimination cannot be against people on the basis of sex or gender and somehow if gender is cultural but sex is biological those two things may be have dynamic tension between them what happens when that tension comes to the forefront in a conflict well a couple of weeks ago this very day I never did come into focus in an east coast lawsuit involving high school girls athletics you where the story well you are okay this is a well let me just read you part of the story as reported by fox news dot com says this three female high school athletes in Connecticut along with their families filed a federal lawsuit to prevent transgender athletes from competing on girls track and field meets arguing that biologically male athletes have a physical advantage Selena Solis senior at Glastonbury high school Chelsea Mitchell a senior at canton high school and Elena Smith a sophomore at Danbury high school announced the lawsuit in a press conference on the steps of the Connecticut state capitol in Hartford that according to The Washington Post one of the girls a quote our dream is not to come in second and third place but to win fair and square all we are asking for is a fair chance and quote the three are arguing that competing against biologically male athletes has denied the chance to win medals and chief scholarship opportunities alliance defending freedom the article says an American conservative Christian nonprofit organization is representing the girls in the federal lawsuit months after initially filing a related title nine complaint with the US department of education that complaint remains under investigation by the DOE's office for civil rights the lawsuit filed by alliance defending freedom and their attorney Christina Holcomb says in part or they offer the following statement in part quote girls deserve to compete on a level playing field forcing them to compete against boys is unfair shatters their dreams and destroys their athletic opportunities having separate boys and girls sports has always been based on biological differences not what people believe about their gender because those differences matter for fair competition end forcing girls to be spectators in their own sports is completely at odds with title nine a federal law designed to create equal opportunities for women in education and athletics and quote that's the attorney for the three girls that filed this lawsuit our goal goes on to say the following him the most on here the most recent lawsuit filed in the U. S. District Court in Connecticut argues that the new a new policy under the Connecticut association of schools a Connecticut interscholastic athletic conference which allows high school athletes in competitions that align with their gender identify pose a concrete threat to tantalize protections against sex based discrimination article goes on all three plaintiffs have competed with and almost always placed behind to transgender sprinters Terry Miller in Andre a year what Mitchell one of the complaining three finished third in the twenty nineteen state championship in the girls fifty five meter indoor track competition behind both Miller and here with the two transgender athletes the two Connecticut high school seniors who were born biologically male but identifies female have won fifteen girls state indoor or outdoor championship races since twenty seventeen according to the lawsuit fifteen no these are individuals who went through you were born biologically their sex is male and they went through J. a puberty as males that that tremendous influx of testosterone does what testosterone does to the human body increases muscle mass and so forth I have a good a few thoughts on this as alluded to in the lawsuit school sponsored sports are divided into girls and boys based on the god given traits that biologically men have the capacity to be stronger and faster than women that's why there's a separate the sexes for the sports but yet they call it boys and girls which is more of a gender identification thing I think that's where some of the confusion lies but if a biological male has a biological advantage over female competitors I would argue the female competitors are being unfairly disadvantage but more importantly they are being irreparably damaged if these girls are winning races because they're losing to trans gender males lessons and that's denying them the opportunities to win championships get scholarships and that sort of thing that can't be reversed part of whether or not lawsuits go forward and sometimes whether not injunctions are issued is whether or not the plaintiffs in a lawsuit R. if if nothing happens if the situation is allowed to continue whether those plaintiffs are by the judgment of a judge are going to be irreparably harmed in this particular case since the clock is ticking on the eligibility of these girls who want to compete at a championship level and perhaps get scholarships to colleges or whatever else they are being damaged in the here and now and you can't turn back the clock don't do that damage I think that's a very powerful argument my second thing is this I honestly do not understand the competitive mindset of these biological males who are transgender and who insist on competing against biological females athletics is about excelling in the framework of competition where is the gratification of being an athlete was a male body dominating female competitors I mean let's say lebron James decided you know what I I'm in touch with my feminine side he slaps on the way to put a little make up decides to join the W. NBA scores a hundred and twenty points in every game has a big busy advanced is because as a competitor on the basketball court do we all hold greater admiration for him do we think that a better of his athletic prowess for doing that post went out in the Olympics they have different gender sports live men's and women's sports although if you think back to the seventies and eighties the east German women seem to cross that line a lot because they would they would use these women up with so much testosterone that these women were collective the female weightlifters you over those people all day I mean these people were sport like mutton chop sideburns and and huge biceps and vans are sticking out of their necks and arms and stuff like that to beat the crap idea yeah I mean they they would do this is to give the clean and jerk at five hundred bones yeah but they still had indoor plumbing so they were technically right they were they were allowed to compete as women so okay it kind of went that way for awhile no it's just the opposite like if they give the bride decided I've I've I'm a woman and will play the W. NBA does that advances plot as a basketball player if Rory McElroy if if lebron would become the prime to what we were back about raw water to become whatever female name I get to go for him and you know stand up on the LPGA tour and drive everybody by a hundred and twenty judge yards every hole and you know and and win every tournament just about every German does that make us admire him more as a golfer first name he's got a biological advantages affected matter is he's bigger he's stronger and can swing the golf club faster to hit the ball further than most women in can anyone in his case the Brenda lebron James lane for the Seattle sharks of the W. N. B. A. is there such a team is the sales tax it sounds like there should be if there's not I just don't understand why guys like these to track at these transgender track athletes in Connecticut find any sort of competitive gratification you know when your competitor in your athlete if you've been ever been a competitor at you know in a in a team sport like baseball I've I've played a couple years of baseball in high school or even a golf which I never played competitively in an organized fashion but certainly played you know five dollar Nassau's against my buddies it's not just the money you want to beat him you want to be W. or be what is meaningful and especially you want to beat him if they're better than you played a couple baseball teams in my day growing up were we beat teams unexpectedly they were better than us it was fabulous what gratification is it if you're a guy with a male so seventeen or eighteen year old body spread down a fifty five yard track faster than a girl the female I just don't see where the where the upside is that and we say one final thing based on potential financial liability I wonder if at some point sports especially sports associated with public learning institutions like high schools and colleges I wonder if they're going to get away from the distinction of men's sports and women's boys or boys sports and girls sports men and women boys and girls that all refers to gender I wonder if they get away with that after they get successfully sued a few times by people who successfully make the claim in court that they are being damaged by having to run against transgender males if your woman if you're female I want is the change from boys and girls and men's and women's to males and females I mean it is so if all points back to biology what are you biologically pull down your pants let's see your plumbing they'll determine which side of the ledger you go to I mean if you're one of these guys in Connecticut what honestly one of these transgender women girls in Connecticut you really feel good when you're up on the on the on the awards stand getting the medal placed around your neck knowing that you just out ran a bunch of females you can't can you that's going to be a hollow experience I would think anyway as soon as is this learning institutions realize there might be potential financial liability in them in having these transgender as athletes run against transgender male athletes run against females maybe that'll change it would be like Keightley policy be a Caitlyn Jenner getting back into swimming now and kicking rear ends hello yeah what I think is it with with the you know Bruce Jenner now Caitlyn Jenner I think I think there was much warmer cultural thing because he was so high profile that we these boxes and stuff like that is Bruce and now it's J. U. G. were hilariously said says when it comes to Caitlyn Jenner it's it's all the rest of the of the walk media could not look at her that is a beautiful woman say it does beautiful you know that that's the that's the kind of social pressure that that you receive so at some point I ask that question rhetorically does biology eventually trump transgenderism I think it's the possible answer to that and I don't know when it might happen with the possible answer to that is yes four thirty six a news talk eleven thirty W.

They didn't like going to their country club and getting tough questions I. It's like the people who vote for trump. You don't WanNa go. You gotta whisper that you vote for trump. The these executives couldn't whisper. They were on the board of the boy scouts because it was well known so they had to change the scouts because the scouts needed to be liked and what happened. They didn't know their market. Their market was people. They don't associate with the market for the boy. Scouts were Evangelical Christians and Mormons. And it doesn't do you a lot of good to take an organization known for its faith and turn it into something not known for its faith to take an organization branded as the boy scouts and allow girls into the organization. And so they've crumbled. They've collapsed he. I WANNA play you part of this conversation. A very much reminds me of this situation.

"Kentucky fried chicken I think might still have some something get a get a bucket you know I always get a bucket of chicken for Valentine's day it always goes everywhere well in my household and I still I do love I'm a little disturbed by the Democrat poem that they released for for Valentine's day it's just kind of weird you know in a little a little dismal they're talking about this up this woman I read the story which we posted yesterday the Democrat woman that attended a trump rally and new in New Hampshire and she talked about how unexpected it was now not a separate what a great time she had everybody's having a good time get out she is practically a convert from one afternoon and she doesn't believe what she is being told on MSNBC anymore a great story but you talk about how happy everybody was and how cheerful and upbeat and positive about America and about the world in about themselves into the US and and she explained that hurt Democrat allies are all gloom and doom all the time and it's miserably misery and you have to be miserable about everything every day that's why they're poem kind of rings true today roses are red violets are blue the planet is dying and so are you not look it's Valentine's from the Democrats this year I was wondering about that I'm thinking Ukraine definitely gets a big Valentine from the Democrats to Kabul load them years Owens give the president of your crime I think you probably get that and that was Vendramin he got upset because he betrayed the commander in chief lieutenant colonel seeking to undermine the United States America and the commander in chief at the so he got to say about the you know who else because these are the these are the soldiers there loved Bradley manning he gets a it gets a Valentine from the Democrats I assume he still gets one every year from Obama Obama you remember Obama pardoned him and and this is a weapon Democrats get upset if president trump showed up pardon anyone Roger stone Paul man a fort anyway the Democrats going to be up in arms and I I gotta tell you their show stopper on that for me is a Bronco BAMMA pardoned Bradley Chelsea manning they like to call in Chelsea and that the E. ran for the Senate in the state of Maryland as a Democrat that I know Democrats say she but the it's got a **** so you know that's and we still haven't had the chap chapters fizz right as far as we know not know call me ma'am yeah okay after you go see a doctor will have another talk but that's the that's the that's the that's the that would give their their military heroes are our bow Berg doll and Bradley manning and you know trade at Bradley manning is he betrayed his country he was that truly was traitorous said treacherous and treasonous and he handed truckloads literally truckloads of classified documents over to wikileaks as I hear have this if there's anything that can hurt my country and all they found was a videotape where some journalists were hanging out with terrorists when an American attack helicopter came to call well those are journalists went you know maybe they should've been hanging out with terrorists just saying you know if you're a journalist hang out here is she not on August sixth nineteen forty five yeah I guess so you know wrong place wrong time no I mean Sam sent but those are their heroes is that people that betray their country their military heroes beau Bergdahl abandoned as post I created danger and perhaps add as many as six of his fellow soldiers killed he is a hero Brocco Bob handed over the Taliban high command in exchange for for him possibly a deserter and you know pardon you know they had a parade for my thank goodness so when when president trump does if he should decide to pardon either Paul man a fort worth Roger Roger stone or anybody else okay Bradley manning and they'll yell at you Chelsea manning yeah Chelsea manning he's a hero no she's in her out so you can have fun with the that kind of stuff but that'll stop the discussion as far as I'm concerned it is it is a fascinating Todd a fascinating time and indeed crazy crazy crazy crazy Democrats you know with all the impeachment all this crazy stuff president trump's approval rating is is at an all time high as president and the Democrats are really frustrated and angry about this and they're just gonna hate America even more and all of the people in it I don't here's a church here is the steeple open the doors and see all the people they hate all those people not so that you know they're the wedding figures but I hate those but

and mania maybe that day Kentucky fried chicken I think might still have some something get a get a bucket you know I always get a bucket of chicken for Valentine's day it always goes everywhere well in my household and I still I do love I'm a little disturbed by the Democrat palm that they released for for Valentine's day it's just kinda weird you know in a little a little dismal there talk about this this woman I read the story which we posted yesterday the Democrat woman that attended a trump rally and they were in New Hampshire and she talked about how unexpected it was now nice every what a great time she had everybody's having a good time get out she is practically a convert from one afternoon and she doesn't believe what she is being told on MSNBC anymore a great story let's just talk about how happy everybody was and how cheerful and upbeat and positive about America and about the world in about themselves into the US and then she explained that her Democrat allies are all gloom and doom all the time and it's miserably misery and you have to be miserable about everything every day that's why they're palm kind of rigs true today roses are red violets are blue the planet is dying and so are you not look it's Valentine's from the Democrats this year I was wondering about that I'm thinking Ukraine definitely gets a big Valentine from the Democrats to Kabul load them years Owens give the president of your crime I think you probably get that and that was Vendramin he gets up because he betrayed the commander in chief lieutenant colonel seeking to undermine the United States America and the commander in chief at the so he could say about the you know who else because these are the these are the soldiers there loved Bradley manning he gets a it gets a Valentine from the Democrats I assume he still gets one every year from Obama Obama you remember Obama pardoned him and and this is a wedding Democrats get upset if president trump should pardon anyone Roger stone Paul man a fort anyway the Democrats going to be up in arms and I I gotta tell you they're showstopper on that for me is a Bronco BAMMA pardoned Bradley Chelsea manning they like to call in Chelsea and that the E. he ran for the Senate in the state of Maryland as a Democrat that I know Democrats say she but the is got a **** so you know that said we still haven't had the chap chapters fizz right as far as we know no call me ma'am yeah okay after you go see a doctor will have another talk but that's the that's the that's the that's the that would give their their military heroes are our bow burghal and Bradley manning and you know trade at Bradley manning is he betrayed his country he was that truly was traitorous said treacherous and treasonous and he handed truckloads literally truckloads of classified documents over to wikileaks as I hear have this see if there's anything that can hurt my country and all they found was a videotape where some journalists were hanging out with terrorists when an American attack helicopter came to call well those are journalists went you know maybe they should've been hanging out with terrorists just saying you know if you're a journalist hang out here Ashima now August sixth nineteen forty five yeah I guess so you know wrong place wrong time no I mean Sam but those are their heroes is that people that betray their country their military heroes Moberg doll abandoned as post I created danger and perhaps add as many as six of his fellow soldiers killed he is a hero Brocco bomb handed over the Taliban high command in exchange for for him possibly a deserter and you know pardon you know they had a parade for my thank goodness so when when president trump does if he should decide to pardon either Paul mana for two four Roger Roger stone or anybody else okay Bradley manning and they'll yell at you Chelsea manning yeah Chelsea manning he's a hero no she's a hero so you can have fun with the that kind of stuff but that'll stop the discussion as far as I'm concerned it is it is a fascinating time a fascinating time in indeed crazy crazy crazy crazy Democrats you know with all the impeachment all this crazy stuff president trump's approval rating is is at an all time high as president and the Democrats are really frustrated and angry about this and they're just gonna hate America even more and all of the people in it well here's the church here is the steeple open the doors and see all the people they had all those people not so that you know they're the wedding figures they helped us but there is

"Weirdo book worms unite. We want to share our love of John fiction with you. Some readers out there may look down on you for your love of horror SCI fi and fantasy but not us. So stop by as we discuss what we've been reading. Hello, John junkies. This is Sandra. This is Scott come to another episode tonight. We're going to be talking about Blake crouches, new John Rabeni adding horror scifi fantasy. I don't even know so much going on his new novel. Recur shen. I was so excited to read this book, because we loved his first book, dark matter, and I'm really wanted to see what he would bring to the table this time. This is a brand new novel just came out really recently as always, we're gonna keep the first half. Spoiler free just to kinda get you interested in let you know why we think you should or should not read this if you're not the audience or what's going on, and how we felt about it. And then the second half were disclaimed to, I think presumably gush about this novel. Oh, presume nothing. Presume nothing. Right. Sure. Of course. So Scott have you been a indulging in any John related? Pop culture things or things you wanna share. I really haven't this, this week has been a little bit craziest past month has been a little bit crazy, mainly because Sandra, and I bought a house leap bought a house. It's very surreal, it's, it's very scary and frightening. But we're just we're so happy. And we're so privileged to be able to, to move into our own home and paint our own walls and, and put up like floating shelves and have our own washer and dryer, sits many floating shelves so many flooding show. That's been our answer for everything. Yeah. Put a floating shelf. They're sticking on the floating shelf. Yeah. Really exciting and we'll also have a much nicer recording setup yet we're going to set up a special office just for our recording studio. And a little bit of work here and there as well. But also some the collectibles and books on the floating shell look forward to that. But we are going to be very busy for the next month month and a half, so busy. But don't worry, we'll still be here. We'll still be recording. Can't stop that the only time we ever really had to take a break one our county was on fire, so. So that's pretty good. So what have you been doing John related recently counted? The same as you. I've been a little bit stalled just trying to deal with moving stuff and whatnot. But I did read a book recently that is not John related that I highly recommend highly recommend. And it's called a heart in the body in the world by Deb Colletti heart in a body in the world. Yeah. Strange title, but it kind of six in your memory little bit. And it's about a girl who is describing from high school, and she's been through something traumatic, and she decides to run across the country from Washington state to Washington, DC, and her grandpa is following behind her in their RV. So if you like kind of road trip books. This is a good one. If you like really hard hitting contemporaries. This is a good one. And I don't read contemporary, a whole lot at all. But I am runner. So this book appealed to me is like, oh, this book, will change your life. This book was amazing. Please read. It is so important for the times we live in now and what's going on socially in the world. And it's a good conversation to have and to be a part of some really complicated big issues that are going on. Especially in the United States. You're listening to that on audiobook, right? I was hey, hey, do you need an audible code? We got one. That's right. It's audible trial dot com. Forward slash John. Ritter. G. E. N. R. E. There is a little commercial. All right. Without further ado, let's get into recur Shen by Blake crouch memory makes reality. That's what New York City. Caught berry Sutton is learning as he investigates, the devastating phenomena. The media has dubbed false memory syndrome, a mysterious affliction that drives its victims mad with memories of a life. They never lived neuroscientist Elena Smith already understands the power of memory. It's why she dedicated her life to creating technology that will let us preserve our most precious moments of our past if she succeeds anyone will be able to experience a first kiss the birth of child, the final moment with the dying parent as berry searches for the truth. He comes face to face with an opponent more chair fine than any disease a force that attacks, not just our minds. But the very fabric of the past, and as its effects began to unmake the world, as we know it, only he and Halina, working together, we'll stand a chance at defeating it this. This book take some twists and turns that are that are at I expected. And then very much not. Yeah. So as Scott mentioned, we huge, huge fans of dark matter. Great book in our opinion, loved it highly recommended it. This is better. This is better. Okay. Wow. That's pretty strong statement. This book is powerful engaging scary thrilling. It makes you think it makes your brain hurt with the science that is going on in this book. There is like some heavy science stuff that like in dark matter. He does a really great job. He had really great people helping him to put this into digestible terms for those of us who can are kind of Lehman too big concepts. Gripping horrifying. I'm this book is amazing, spokes absolute amazing. If you listen to me, everybody looking at sandy, okay? Look at me, me, and my is if you read one book this year rechristen. Wow. It's mazing. I mean, I think that recur Shen is a stellar page Turner. I was. I mean, I'm obsessed there. That's not clear. I'm szeswith this. I got that. I enjoyed it cover to cover. I thought it was fantastic. It's really unexpected. The characters are fantastic. And it just Blake crouch is so good elevating the stakes to just unbelievable levels that just you could not even imagine it even being conceiving of how extreme he gets in his books and recurs is no different. I, I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. I thought it was. I thought it was really good. The dark matter more I like them both differently. I think dark matter scratch scratches issue that this doesn't for me dark matter is just a really fun thriller with a really cool, you know, dimensional shift things. Recur Shen is, is, is a totally different book. I, I mean exists in the same. Innocent head space that Blake crouch creates with his stories. But it it it's just a different book entirely. I really loved it. Let's lot more. Like I said, emotionally, gripping and a lot more horrifying to. And there's a I'll say that, that, that I don't want to compare recurs into dark matter too much because it's the same author read. It's yeah, yeah. But dark matter made me think more, what made me think more. Well, dark matter gave me kind of a, an excess stencil thought in regards to relationships and sense of self, and who who your actual self is this one definitely made me think in other ways, but it. It didn't make me think about myself and reality as much as dark. Really I am. I'm really shocked to hear that because I think all those things that I loved about dark matter that you just mentioned this book was that on steroids. It was incredibly amplified made me think a lot about time and reality and memory and what makes a person a person, and what makes the people you love the people you love. This is it's definitely not spoiler each say this. And it's not the same thing. But this is very much gives me attornal sunshine of the spotless mind vibes. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Stiff rent quite different, but it's some of the same stuff. So that entices you. That's a good. That's a good little appetizer. It kind of reminds me of a movie that I haven't seen the whole thing of honest. But it's oh the arrival, I don't think you've seen that, Sandra. Now, if you've seen the arrival and you found some things that you really liked about that this kind of has some of that same idea. Let's talk a little bit about characters just kind of basically. So we have we have some main characters chief among them berry, and Helena. So as hard as berry goes berry is you grow to learn more about berry and what makes him him throughout the book. So he's a little bit of a slow cook as a character, but I think that's important because we're like we're peeling back the layers of berry as the story goes he's this cop who's kind of down on his luck. He's got a alcohol problem. He's Scott relationship problems. He's in grief and. And then everything kind of opens up for him. Yes, you really to explore him even deeper as the book goes on, because of the events of the story, one great thing about the framing of the story, and this will come up as we talk about the characters even more is that the basic idea. The story is a great way to explore a character. Yeah. To see who person is, as well as a person wants to be, and berry becomes so sympathetic, and so strong and, and because he he's a sympathetic and good character from the beginning but he gets. He gets great. I get under your skin by the end of this book kind of how I was saying about that book. I mentioned the one by Deb Colletti a heart in the body in the world. This is very timely in a lot of ways to it could I mean it could be any time but there's. Some issues that are brought up that I think a lot of people. A lot of people should have on their mind right now. It's hard to say I'm gonna come back to that in the spoilers, but it is very timely to our climate in the world resonates to our current position. Yeah. Definitely, so, Helena, love her Halina is one bad MO fo she's Bama fi love. She's brilliant. She's genius beyond genius. Kind of like in some other books. We read, I'm always really happy when the lead lady is smart scientists kind of, like resistant by rigid where actually got a lot of that feeling where berries, like, so proud of like how brilliant and he's in such admiration of this character. He's adjacent to of like -taying. She's smart match. She's smart. That's really cool because, you know, it doesn't always have to be like, oh, the guys the, you know, the gene. Or anything, that's so tired. And it's so nice to see the woman in science being a genius and the men around her being in all, and it's, it's really nice in with, with Elena where she's not only just like just a complete genius. And, and you know, really sharp and smart, but she's also incredibly strong and driven and very just goal oriented. And, and she just will let nothing stand in her way to get exactly what she wants. And that is so exciting and refreshing to just to have both and she's incredibly moralistic as well. And this voice of reason and sanity in a world gone insane and a not morality, like in the virtue is biblical Judeo Christian sense, but morality at its. Base core of being a good human, and serving humanity really cool. And she also liked berry opens up a lot over the course of the book to like berry gets under your skin. And it's like Elena, just, just crushed my heart with how much I cared for her by the end of this book, and dimension. It's scary. There's some incredibly horrifying that happens in this book horrifying is the word for. There are some really terrifying events in descriptions, in this book that will that will haunt you. I'm haunted now and not ones you're used to. I mean, I don't want to say that this is a horror novel because it's, it's, it's very multi genre going on. But it is. But it's. Is it is frightening stuff? I think horror fans won't be disappointed for that reason. I mean obviously I'm obsessed, I, I really have to say this book is mass appeal. I really do. I agree. I agree. I like I think if he if you're the type of person is like, oh, I don't like her books, you'll like this. I think if you're a horror fan, you'll love this. I think if you're a scifi fan you're gonna love this some contemporary stuff some kind of contemporary fantasy fans. I think would really enjoy this literary fiction fans would enjoy this. I mean this book is the one to beat for me to be my best book of the year. And it's only June people. So come on authors. Impress me, impress me. I really do feel like this book is going to be in my top five. No question. Yeah. I. Picking favorites. But this is a very good book. I agreed that this massive peel. I think that Blake crutch does a really good job of combining complicated scientific ideas with great character, work fast, plots and, and just psychological elements that, that, that just make you think about who make you think about yourself, make you think about the world around you. You know, if you're a psychology major this, his books are giving you a lot of really good ideas and philosophy major, perhaps loss, Affi. That's the word. I'm looking for phil- philosophical ideas. Yeah. Very big philosophical ideas, and this bug. Okay. My brain hurts. Let's go to the spoiler section. Read the book. Join the show. Please like in subscribe on twos.

You know from here in Washington are having great freshman year's Kiana Williams is one of the most talented point guards in the country, certainly one of the most talented in our conference, and like you said Elena Smith is having an unbelievable senior season and back are dots in her post player. Right. And so able to. Stretch a lot more than she did. Maybe when we played them earlier this year when they were down with some post players. She doesn't have to be the main player in the in the paint. So but Atlantic can play all over the floor. Certainly tar is a fabulous coach like you said one of the very best if not the best in women's college basketball. So I mean, we feel like we have nothing to lose. It is our last game this season on our floor. And specially for Jenna and Hannah to go out just playing hard with all out effort. I think it's gonna be a great game. There's going to be demanded of them for forty minutes of focus, but just to play loose and to have fun on the offensive end. Make the extra pass not play hero ball where I have to make that pass. Maybe my teammate can make it. If I swing it. Or if I have to take that shot. Maybe I could swing the ball. And let my team take that shot. And just take what the defense gives us. And and really for us. We were down in some numbers. We got Missy Peterson back this weekend. It certainly helped us with the depth but trying to correct continue to create offensive possession stir. Our defense that's gonna be key. Because we need more offense of possession to talented teams coming in Friday at seven Cal Sunday. At two Stanford is the final two times that you can catch university of Washington women and then next weekend. It'll be the Pac twelve tournament come out and check out the women and give him their support. Come out come out and support. Jodi as always, thank you. Good luck this weekend. All right. Thank you so much Jody Wynn coming up my cop cans and Toni castricone, we'll take it away next..

"I mean your cotton hill, you play all kinds of voices on this show. Do you guys typically record together in the same room, or as that's luxury right for that thing? Right. Yeah. We tried to. But everybody was you know, Steven was off doing movies. And I was and Pam and and Mike was not in town that often because he was an Austin half the time and back here. But when we were all in a room together that was super fun. Yeah. I was Stephen root and Pam seeing when Britney was around to Brittany, and oh boy that was a fun time must have been a dream gig. Right, man. It was great. It was so funny. And and it was just we didn't I didn't know what I was doing. Pam had been done of ton of. She was a real pro. And and. Even I don't think done that much. You know that much force work before that. But he's such a dear sweet man and also to it was like, I'm watching you know, and Kathy Jimmy. I don't think done a ton of voice to she's just a good actress. And but it was watching all these people like watching Pam and watching Stephen root just watch him walk up to the microphone after he'd been sitting for a second to Dale to do bills voice. Uh-huh. Man. That's I could watch that guy for that is it because he's also physically physically he's doing the thing. Oh, that's great to watch. And just his take on a line at taught me so much and PAM's take online to those two taught me, you know, a whole lot. Yeah. Of just how to how to look at align in different way. They're just they're just other kind of creatures in their smarties seems like you do a lot of both on camera and voice over work. You know, not not. I don't wanna ask if you have a preference, but what are the benefits? What's the best part of each job for you? Do you have a preference? No, no, use both great. Yeah. It's just different stuff to do. You know, it's it's like TV and film. Well, there's great things about film, and there's great things about doing a series like this Dickinson series. It's it's great to be able to keep working character day after day and month after month and really dive into that thing. So this is a period doing. Wow. Takes place in eighteen fifties. But this hip hop soundtrack. And it's been updated and the younger kids and hailee Steinfeld is pal Dickinson guy. She's fantastic. And and so it's it's updated slightly, you know, every now and again a walk into a room. We'll go what's up? Yeah. So there's so an as a conscious choice by Elena Smith a writer too and the creator to to give it more of a fresh updated field. There's a great dance he quits. I think in third episode or something with the kids are doing a really traditional sort of. You know, eighteen fifties kind of proper waltz. And then by the end of it. There's hip hop music blaring, and they're doing this really sexualize raunchy dance. That would be the sort of internal, you know, the internal dialog sexualize dialogue going on with these kids Externalizing, and it's really great. And it's really effective and it completely works in the context of our show. I can't wait to see that. That's something. It's cool. Man. It's going to be cool. Because Emily was a really misunderstood poet. We have such a shitty vision of Emily Dickenson. There's that one goddamn photo of hers that dower little spinster creep was shoulders about four inches wide. You know? So they go. Yes, she sat in her room, and maybe shed up..

Costal traveling. We just, you know, it's also it's a, it's a weird spooky time in your body. Spooky mysteries very powerless. And you're just like, ooh, wouldn't it be cool if I have any power over anything? Just like in the craft? Do you still dabble in woo. I'm not. You're just saying you to terrorizing. I recently did a terror reading on myself. You know, we're Californians. Yeah. I waver, you know, because you've been to some which parties? Yeah, yeah. Oh, yeah. I went to a witch party like last week. I was trying to draw this out any naturally, the physician to moon ritual. I was just thinking very high tolerance for stuff like that. Especially when it's done with a sense of humor. I think it's like the more humorless it is. The more likely I am to not be into it will cost money than it's probably bad his my feeling about those things, but you also seem to remember much of the tarot. 'cause when I was like, oh, Molly nervous, death, reverse death test Elena Smith for the podcast has done some tarot readings on me in recent years. Great, very great. S- you know, I don't like seek it out constantly, but if somebody is like, hey, would you like me to read your tarot cards? Then? I'll probably do it. I dare though take scary. Well, I think I've had this duck since college and I haven't taken great care of it. So every so often I feel guilty and like sit in the sun or the moon light just to kinda like let all the bad vibes go. Because once I started in a purse for like three years and then I found it and I was like, ooh, had like gum on it, but I was like, I can't throw away this deck because then that'll like that idea energy. In fact, I can probably never get rid of it. We'll do burn. It seems worse. You could probably put it to sleep. What does that mean? And there's also like a a superstition that somebody you're not supposed to buy your own deck someone's for you. Maybe someone will buy you new duck. Well, I have to deal with this one. I, I bought this decades treated me really well. And so a couple of nights ago I was like us should bust out the old tarot cards. They've been sitting in a bowl of crystals and and I did, and it was, and it was great. Also. Because it's nice to do something tactile and like think about like the circumstances of life without looking at a screen or even thinking about or anything that exists on screen. And I think taros a good way to get into a cold rituals will. Yeah, my first paid writing job was in high school. I wrote for a deck of cards that my brothers boss was designing. I forgot about this. I forget what it was called, but he had like designed to deck of cards. They needed like captions and I wrote the captions for them. They were like a different set of like a young and archetypes who also he was the manager of the underground hip hop record store. I want that tarot my brother that, yeah, I think I like had one. It was just sort of like it was like a different type of light card fortune telling that he had invented his passion project. Well, a lot of people make their own tarot decks and I think it ends up taking forever because I think there are seventy eight cards lugging like he had. He had just made up his own system. Okay. So is really fun zone game. That's a little loosey. Goosey is different type of fortune telling they have a deck that's like Allison wonderland base that's really popular. I could see the benefits to doing your own deck so that it's like the meaning of the card is more clear to you beyond just being like a fun way to kind of do ASM our activities of like, you know, doodling around magic and stuff. Well, you can kind of cheat by like making things more explicit, like.
