I'm really looking forward to talking with you about meditation and in particular breath work and I thought that we might want to do it in that order as it seems to be the trajectory in your soon to be released book hungry for happiness, stop emotional eating, and start loving yourself that that book is coming out at the end of September. So this is the this podcast is to dropping a couple of weeks. Before that. So I thought that we would talk about this. Is that okay with you haven't lately unless to excellent. Excellent. So let's begin with with hungry for happiness this the book I I read it It's it's part healing memoir. Can Apart guided introspection and meditations and and also this sort of. Part can a best friend encouragement like you're like this not really a coach like this like your your girlfriend come on. Let's do this. You know so. Can You? Can you tell us about your healing journey that we read about in the book? Absolutely I love how you explain it like that you know my my intention for Reading For writing that book was to write it to just my best friend you know that that felt sense of. I understand you I get it. I was there I know how terrible it can feel when you are in a battle with food in your body. So I'm grateful that the final product came out like that. So I grew up as a dancer and actress when I was quite young and dealt with all kinds of body image issues growing up. I can remember being very young in the bathtub just feeling. This. Felt Santa, feeling, discuss it in my body, which was a feeling that I felt often when I looked in the mirror at at young age and that then manifested into an eating disorder emotional eating restricting overeating all sorts of things when I was about eighteen. And I entered into this period of my life that I. Call My Diet Depression years where. I was on over fifty diets in less than four years and. Truly had no idea how to just eat like a normal person like that was a impossible task for me at that time, I can remember waking up some mornings thinking to myself like a hi, can I just can't wait to go to bed because the thoughts in my mind were so just honestly abusive and just my level of body image. The the severity in which I hated my body was just through the roof and so. I began trying to try to heal my my emotional eating through dieting. So I was going on all sorts of different diets, and of course, just making the making things worse. What we need to realize what I needed to realize that time is emotional eating and and disordered eating is all in inside job and the Maury trying to manipulate and control and mess with our food the worse it actually gets. and. So I can remember about ten years ago reading eat pray love and. It was a story where she went to Bali and she right? Elizabeth. Yeah and he liked poker with dicks. He she found this healer in Bali. That poker with East Dickson and Blah Blah Blah Blah long story short. So I'm like, all right that's what I'm going to do. So I bought a one way ticket to Bali I flew to Bali and I found this exact healer that she wrote about in her book I drove this I I got I got on a scooter scooter got on like a taxi scooter and drove to this man's home. And he barely spoke any English and he started poking me with his sticks and. He, then just has to be your brains broken. And I was like Oh God. Okay. What's going on here? And so he goes you think too much. You have too much thinking and I was like you're so right I really do. And so this was a point in my life where I I couldn't tell the story I had was I couldn't meditate. And I would say I would sit there and meditation and my brain would be going a million miles a minute. And thinking of all sorts of different things I would get up after twenty minutes and. Feel more stressed out than when I initially sat right because a lot of people's experience. And I know you're a pro meditators I, could've used you back in the day. So for me meditation was a challenge but everyone in their dog was telling me that meditation was going to be the path for me to heal my disordered eating will that mean such an interesting position because here's this thing that apparently has all these amazing benefits which it does and I know that now but I couldn't do it to save my

World isn't meeting biodiversity goals, UN report finds
"The number of plants and animals on the planet that are at risk today would be far higher without globally agreed safeguards in action to protect him but it still far from good enough UN by diversity exports sat on Tuesday in call for far greater commitment from only Chicago to safeguard human wellbeing in the planet's the body that oversees these work. The Convention on biodiversity urged those gathering for UN summit at the end of the. Month to broaden their ambition from the convention. Here's Executive Secretary Elizabeth Marina Deputy Executive Secretary David Cooper talking to UN uses Daniel Johnson just if you wouldn't mind Elizabeth Merima give me the classification of diversity and in particular why is it important in simple words by devastate is everything around us and when I say everything around us, it means everything we do as human activities affected by busy. Each could be what we do on the land what we're doing. What we do in the forest, what we do on species, animals, plants, I mean, what we do is we produce our food as we consume all by diversities. So our human actions in the nature of virus around us and what we're finding is that if fact but diversity is in massive trouble and your report from the conventional biological diversity, the UN Conventional Biological Diversity tells us that only six out of the world's twenty goals on biodiversity have. been achieved only partially achieved by the deadline, which is actually this year. So to be honest I wasn't aware that the governments of the world had agreed in Japan twenty ten to a series of biodiversity targets and you're saying that only six of twenty goals of being partially achieved by the two thousand twenty deadline. So what is the concern? Which of these? Obviously a very bad report card where have we gone wrong and please don't say everywhere. No because they some progress. But indeed unfortunately by diversity's declining it unprecedented level rate and precious deriving they decline unfortunately. So increasing just as underlying. So indeed this scorecard, his only identify six of the twenties so not even half in the seats.

We and be waste than what we are talking today I think joining us now we are very fortunate have Mr David Cooper. Deputy Executive Secretary of the UN. Conventional. Biological, diversity. Welcome to you Mr Cooper. Thank you very much. Daniel. Thank you ever so much for joining us. We were just talking there with Elizabeth, my executive secretary on the really mixed report card. I. Think that's the charitable worth putting it off. The biodiversity targets that was back in two, thousand ten. So a decade on. We've got six of twenty goals partially achieved although Elizabeth was saying that the has been some good work on eliminating foreign species from islands and in the fisheries to and other national programs that perhaps you could tell me a bit more about to give us maybe a little bit of positive news. What is a pretty Hesse mystic outlook for humankind and also forbade diversity moving forward? Yes. Thank you very much indeed even in those targets that haven't been pasta passages talks that haven't been achieved. Is.

So numbers of bird mammal extinctions that occurred over the past ten years or indeed over the life of the Convention would bean at least to perhaps up to four times higher without the actions of being taken. So one clear message despite the disappointing results one clear message is policies do work if they are put in place and implemented, and so we need to learn from that we. Need to be encouraged by that, we need to step up those policies more widely in order to reduce the greater biodiversity loss. The report also shows that if he wants to actually not only we do survey to biodiversity loss that Ben that curve and put me on a path to recovery than more fundamental actions also needed looking at the way we produce and consume food in particular that. Sustainable production and consumption captains more broadly as well. I'm just going to dive in that because the report is pretty alarming and I'm very glad to hear about some of these national projects that have been successful in. Boosting bio-diversity, but the report says that the rate of biodiversity loss is unprecedented in human history I guess we did know that really and precious intensifying and living as a whole being compromised, and of course, we can't have this discussion without talking about covert and how the degradation of our natural environment has I suppose, but closer into contact with viruses in the natural world, is that the kind of thing that's really going to galvanize support for greater support for native greater protection for nature if we don't do so we're going to be huge trouble ourselves forms. Suddenly I I. Hope. So there's Very clear evidence as you say that the degradation of of ecosystems encroachment into international areas, unregulated wildlife trade, these things. Increase the risk of emergence of future. Disease increase the risk of future pandemics, and conversely, if we can invest in conservation an investigation regulating control wildlife trade, we will reduce those risks. So these are suddenly Lead important reasons on top of wanting to prevent six-man south extinction. These really positive reasons also for investing in IDA versity.

Trump pledges coronavirus vaccine will be developed by election day
"More now on president trump's controversial timeline for Corona Virus Vaccine Dr Vivek Murthy is joining us right now he's the former surgeon general of the United States. He's also an advisor to the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden Dr Murthy fact so much for joining us and as you heard the president is teasing a vaccine. He says before a special date by that he means Election Day November third as the former surgeon general does that raise red flags to you? It's good to be with you today and I like so many people in the medical community really hopeful that we will have a vaccine by EIB your year end or by early next year and we need one. Because so many people have. been affected by Kobe lost their lives cove, and if we had an effective vaccine, we may have been able to avoid many of these debts. But the key thing about the process for getting vaccine is that it has to be driven by science and scientists not by political or you know figgers by political timelines and that's really important because right now we have about a third of people on surveys who are saying that if a vaccine was available today, they either would not take it or unsure if they would ticket despite how bad everything has been with Kobe that means that we've we've got to hold ourselves to A. High Standard of accountability in issuing approval or an emergency authorization and their three key requirements to keep in mind. The first is that we've got to have sufficient high quality data that tells us that a vaccine meets the standards for safety and efficacy second, we have to have transparency in the data itself so that scientific authorities can actually look at the state of themselves outside of government and evaluated the third we've got also have a clear plan for distributing vaccine quickly and fairly and this is not easy to do. It requires having robust data systems for example, to track WHO's gotten the vaccine to make sure it's not inequitably. Distributed, but we cannot do in this process is Russian authorization without hearing directly from scientists or advisory groups that would really set us back in terms of public faith in vaccines. Public has to be confident in the safety. To be sure our Elizabeth Cohen spoke to a federal official Dr Murphy who said and I'm quoting I don't know any scientists involved in this effort who thinks we will be getting shots into arms any. Before Election Day. What do you think is a more realistic timeline. More realistic expected we will start to see You know good news about a vaccine being approved at the end of the calendar year or beginning of next year, and that would be an optimistic scenario, and then it takes some time after that to actually deliver the vaccine and get the shot in the arm. So to speak because a shot in the arm is what matters at the end of the day that's how we actually. Protect people and stop discredit covid nineteen.

Elizabeth Wharton: Strong shoulders for someone else to stand on
"This, Elizabeth Warren and I am an attorney by training and currently chief of staff at site an Internet startup company. I've always enjoyed solving problems. Nancy drew being some of my favorite books. Growing up early on I thought, I was going to be kind of the. White Knights eight-year District Attorney fighting crime and I realized very quickly after years of high school mock trial competitions that at the end of the day, I did not enjoy it litigation. So, while I knew, I had found my home in the policy legal world. It took me a little while to come upon the technology side. So been a few years on the hill looked around the room and said what's next and saw it everyone who was at that level I thought I wanted to be they all had a law degree. From there went to law school passed the Bar, and of course, answer the sirens call a big law firm. Big. Money big projects. and. Works in finance business in real estate for both a for six years. As I started doing that more friends be in the Atlanta area. Were involved in different technology projects research. And they start asking you questions and. Hey if we're doing this, if we're researching, this is this legal And from there it just snowballs and next thing I know as John Wick and the John Wick movies would say. Are you. Are you back John and eventually he's like, yeah, I guess I am so. You are you are you at technology attorney? Well Yeah I guess I am. there. I've had the good fortune to take diets years of advising businesses. From the outside looking in and helping companies shape their strategy from the legal perspective that I've been able to grow that and now can help companies shape their strategy from the inside looking out. So that's a lot of lot of. It really helps a building in if you have thought five moves ahead as you're doing something. That went surprises come up later it's. It's a lot of fun I. Get to be able to say, Oh, no no, we built that we baked that into the contract ahead of time or yeah, I anticipated I mean one of the best examples is you look at, for example, if I'm working with security researchers, we've got a product that we want to use that says, oh, you can't reverse engineer this software. But. If I know going in that, that's exactly what we're. GonNa do but not from militia standpoint instead we wanna make sure it meets our needs. So knowing how to then go back to the other company and say hey gonNA be honest. Engineering, teams. GonNa reverse us. But we're doing it to protect ourselves. So basically think of it as we're can be deering. Free Quality Assurance Testing, and some folks love you. Because you're like wait you're going to pay US money to use our product and give us. Effective feedback on how to make it better. Yes Steve At. Moon. Ask. Those questions find. Who had brings you joy speaks your interest what sparks your imagination. Look around see who's doing even just a piece of that or part of that and asked them hey, what what about us drove you there or what should I do what I learned and just absorb that information every step of the way I have had someone willing to give their time, their expertise and really just mentoring doesn't quite summit all of supporting cheering me on and I'd like to think that I can just help someone else because you're the adage that a rising tide lifts all ships we didn't get to where we are without the help of others, and so I just like to add drunk shoulders for someone else to stand awning help reach their heights.

"I think we've loosely sort of framed. This is how would you proceeds in terms of directing okay. I know what that means. I'm so curious. Well let's say so. You have spent four hours setting up for a big action sequence and ripe before you guys are about to roll sons down. Whatever your lead actor comes up and says I don't know why my character would say this so I've been on that I've been in those moments and here's the thing that is work that athletes should it needs to be done by you. That is literally your fucking job as an actor is to figure out why you do things and that work needs to be done long before you show up to the set. I love that you're looking at me. Dirk hardcore because you probably know. I've done that ship before without meaning to but it makes me fucking crazy when actors do that. It makes me insane. I've been on. I won't name names but I've been on sets. Were that exact surly four hours set up. Two hundred background extras or standing around. It's you know it's freezing out. They call everybody to set and then suddenly the lead actor and the director to go to the trailer conversation about why he's doing something and the answer literally is like 'cause we already shot see we already shot a and this is literally just be and we just need to connect a NC. It's infuriating like people have families go home to like. Get Your Shit together. Do your work before he shop to set. Okay let's say you're financier is dating this gal named Bernie and you are kind enough to give her a line on the day of her. Seen Wardrobe comes up to you and says the very unique does not want to wear the red dress that she'd already been fitted tailored in and it's not her thing. I love how. How big your recent discussing? So far has been scenario in my life. Actually when I think I would do in. That situation is first of all. I want everyone to come to set feeling great and confident so with wardrobe hair and makeup. That's usually a conversation I have. How do they feel on it now? I can't have somebody come to set in a blue dress. Win The whole backgrounds. Blue or like the readdress is a story point like she's gotTa wear the Red Dress. That's a different scenario. This amaze just like I feel bad in this and I don't feel confident. I don't know how I can do it. People are very insecure especially young or inexperienced people in every industry by the way. I'm not even just saying that of actors right like you have to get up and give a presentation tomorrow. It's your first time in front of the boss in Blah Blah Blah and. You're like sweating through your blazer and you feel like you tried on seventeen outfits right. That's that's the same scenario that this is that this is. I would just want that person to feel confident coming to set. And then at the end of the day I would know because it's the it's like the finances girlfriend that I'm probably editing. That line out of the film anyway. So so it's not a big deal. It's an N. B. C. D. Her line is I really think we gotta get Outta here now. Oh well that sounds like I might need it but I can later okay.

Do you find yourself total like creating a character kind of by yourself trying to round out the vocals. It's an intensive process. Yes it's exceedingly intensive. You have to bring so much to it because you're not you can't rely on anything else right so there's no one to bounce off of their zone with you. It's why so what I was going to say is I love. I do a three in a row every single time. Some always like. You've gotta be kidding. You'VE GOTTA BE KIDDING. You've got to be kidding you're like. Oh my God did we get it please generous? I was promoting my first animated movie and I said basically something similar to that like well you know it was it was like how was it. I was you know I know everyone talks. About what an amazing job it isn't it is but it was also more difficult than I thought and she said well it's not like you're digging ditches and I you know my memory. The audience stood up and clapped I. That's what happened to my memory in that moment like of course it's like an amazing job and I'm not in. Yeah but that implies so that we can never talk about what we do and I think. That's a bummer. I know you're right. You're right that's an interesting way to put it because there is that feeling of especially during this time to there's this feeling of like we're so fortunate to have a bunch of you know can chilly and Yeah Pasta and our pantry and toilet paper although Brennan Pretty Low on the paper towel situation. We just ordered bamboo toilet paper because the only thing we could or I don't know I haven't touched it. I everything that comes to the house. I pretend is like radioactive has to stay in the garage for like a week. Yeah 'cause that's were that's how wide I'm crazy today. I know I know Okay wait so that I wanted to ask you to the. Oh if there was a young like eighteen year old sensitive ingenue. Who has been late every day for the first week of Shooting League How do you deal with that as a leader? Because when I did House bunny I mean I wasn't directing it or anything but I did have a pretty sweet trailer Elizabeth. Douglas get that trailer again. I have no doubt you're number one on the call and number one on the call. Sheet is a really important raw on a set. It's like it's it sets the tone for the entire film set. How would you deal with that kind of scenario? I'm sure you've had to deal with the managing of sensitive personalities. Like all across the board. I think communication is what you try to do. Would you pull that person? Aside like how how private of course I mean I usually try and bring a producer. Someone else in to the conversation so it doesn't feel unless that would feel like it's gang up because I think that's never good either but I think being able to try and meet that person where they are. It's almost always insecurity. It's almost always something's going on so right that is not about the movie it. Some personal insecurities going on or like you know. I've not been in a situation where someone's being harassed or like they don't. WanNa come.

Social Media and the data aggregate of the world but one of the things. I love is because of big data. Everyone all of these things that were like. Maybe this is happening. You know maybe women are being a harasser and then it's like no no he take a quick poll. Hashtag me to look it up. We've all been harassed at work right.

We've been together since nineteen ninety two and you guys met in college. I Save College. I met on my first day of college. Yep He was a year older than me. He was a sophomore a freshman I met him in front of a Frat House. When you first met your husband did you think oh like Frat dish or anything. I don't even know if like my mom hates it when I say Douche. I don't even love that word that much. Not because it offends me but it just feels not very creative But did you think like were you was that turn like how did the court go? Yeah I think the word that I liked from that time period was tool. Yeah yeah so I would say he was definitely. He seemed a little bit like a tool. May that being said I was attracted to him pretty quickly. I think he was at the time when I met us. Nineteen when I met him and I think all nineteen year old guys that are in frats tools. Like there's no getting around it. He was. He was a sophomore. All the freshmen is were like beneath him. When he was a freshman I think he knew. It was kind of a bummer. To be a freshman dude now now that he was a sophomore. He was excited so he definitely had an attitude. Like I know what's up and I'll I'll show you the ropes and I'll take you around and I'll teach you stuff and you know I remember thinking like okay. I know I love your smile right now because it's so seems like you had this all knock down and you're like you will. You're not wrong. He was actually we joke because he was really interested in this other girl Kate. She was a twin. I think she was in the nursing school. She was the nicest girl had amazing voice like a deep cool voice. It was a great girl. I don't think it was ever actually interested in my now husband. He was definitely interested in her. And I knew that and I was like article. Whatever you don't think he was just saying that now like I would like. I liked like everyone likes. Yes but don't you think that like guys are taught like if when you really like a girl you start talking about like another girl like Nag? Yeah the May have been a game movement little gamy. Maybe I like that idea regardless I think like within ten days we were on our first date we. I ran into a bunch of times after that first meeting. And you know it's not like. I didn't go to a small into a really big school so the fact that I kept running into him fell very faded. Oh my God. Did you find out later that he was very kind of knew? None of it was just truly like he started rushing a guy that lived on my floor and we both were doing. Communications causes in the same building. We would like cross each other and it's crazy. I went to a really big school as well. And you went to University of Pennsylvania's right. Yeah I went to University of Washington and I kept running into my ex-boyfriend all the time as well but that was because I was stocking head quickly memorized class schedule. And be like Oh. Hey so that's crazy. So how are things like I? Actually I have a boyfriend at the time when I went. Well I had a high school boyfriend. His name is Brian.

Who was at a different school? And we kind of broke. Up It sucked. I actually went and visited him on this one weekend. I took a bus ride out there to see him like a greyhound. Bus Rows like all right. This is the weekend you're going to tell him like we're doing it. It was clear we both knew it. I went I met some of his friends. It was great we did break up in everything that that entails happened and then he started dating another girl who dated for a long time like we were just we were right for each other and he has a lovely life now and still has a great family and all those things so it was. It was great. I love it that you took a greyhound to break up. I called my first husband over the phone. That's the kind of ex- I am. Now I took the Greyhound I went on. I knew were breaking up.

Line of like especially when you're dating somebody at that age. There's like the break-up and then getting back together like a couple of months and then another break up and then getting back together for an even shorter period of time and then another break. And it's all dramatic and your friends have to listen to it. And it's like this. Slow weaning of your. I like that dizziness of you know narcissistic.

That's one of the great ones where I got to go work with like so many amazing women so happy about. I love that you do that. You've been such a pioneer when doing press for as a director what time to be the most annoying questions like as a female director is it so female centric. It's hard. It's really hard. It's hard because you get a lot of look at you feminists and you're like I'm just trying to be a filmmaker. I just happened to tell a story about a bunch of women. I don't know back in the day Jane campion. I'm sure it was not asked like you made the piano with the female star in this little girl and a pack win. How what is your big feminist statement? It's hard because you at the same time the journalists. I feel need validation that women are doing better down a beacon of some offensive. Hope right right so so I don't want to dismiss it but I also I didn't sign up to direct movies because I felt like I was meant to make some grand feminist statements in gestures. You it's really not why I'm doing it so I do find that the messaging can cloud what the movie is. What the work is actually doing? I do not get asked a lot about like lenses or you know cinematography or any of the sort of technical stuff but I obviously also have to master to direct like big huge productions. I find that really fascinating like no one's interested in that and wondered if you ever got asked like Ooh did you like doing the action sequence in. Charlie's like all that kind of Shit that they would never ask good. I've been asset the three times. I think I've been like actually offended because it takes a lot to offend me.

Who's now that I just like? What do you really think it's impossible than I could have picked these songs?

Just it like Poke like but but it wasn't really and then same thing kind of happened with the action. Sequences it was like you know and tries needles bid of so but who came up with the action sequence. You don't like my name is on the script so I actually really did say like. I think it would be fine if went to a racetrack. In here's what I'm thinking happens to the racetrack and that I have to write it down to communicate it and then we have to have to hire the right people. I have to choreograph than we have to shoot it correctly in the NAFTA edited and put it in a movie like I actually did have to do all of that but it was. It was interesting. There were people who were like. Yeah but I mean the second unit and you had there was someone else seven so the stunt coordinator. He did a lot. You're like what I do know the casting was not your choice because I was told I was totally wanted to go if a if it were up to me of course up to me. Listen Elizabeth I can be a bad ass. I'm one hundred percent clear on how bad feeling at the time I was offended. Was someone came in and said you do so much? Don't ever just WanNa take a bath and night bus. No I don't I mean I take showers anyway. I'm not really a bat person. But that's such a weird question to ask in a professional setting of a professional person. Don't you think that is one step deeper like the first step is like oh I've met with Elizabeth Banks? We met at this West Hollywood hotspot. She ordered a salad with Sun. Dried Tomato Elizabeth is slowly picking it yourself. It's like okay and then we don't want to just take a bath. I mean Dallas and bad but I will also say that I am grateful that I interviewed about anything at all. I'm grateful to make things and that I get to tell people about it and at the end of the day. I know in wonder too though if we are. Are we supposed to be feeling more grateful? But because people like you people get opportunities and thank you so much for being a trailblazer. Oh my goodness you know one of the things for me. That came out of me. To a little bit was I did feel a real sense of camaraderie with the women in my industry. That not really felt before there was always sort of unspoken anecdotes. And you know the idea like you go to a set and you're the only woman I rarely made movies where I'm an actor. I have now as producer and a director been able to make movies with lots of women but prior to that prior to meet doing it the amount of time I went to set up a bunch of girls that never happened never end if there is another girl were pitted against each other characterize usually coup lately. Yeah I just find that that. The entire system is being is being shaken. Or it's not you get these really great moments where we shake things up.

To me I don't think you owe that to anyone that you don't want to tell those stories to and I asked to say absolve yourself of that. I don't think it's necessary that every single woman talk about it I by the way. I think it's obvious. Hashtag meat to the every single one of us has seen too many dicks that we didn't want to say that we've all they were all gorgeous in my experience. I had so many like memory jobs during the initial days of me too. I remember that thing that happened. Yeah Yeah did yeah. If a little funky at the time turns out it was yeah turns out.

I said this woman's cutting Haft where the body was cut in half it was done very very almost almost professionally like a meat cutter a guy who had knowledge of of addressing the year down in the field or something like that reporters from the Los Angeles Examiner found contact information for Elizabeth's mother phoebe short. WHO's living in Boston at the time? They phoned phoebe but they didn't tell her that Elizabeth had died or had been murdered or anything. They told her that her daughter had just WANNA beauty contests and they wanted to know. More information about our background continence sort of baited her into giving some background information about Elizabeth. So phoebe told them that. Her daughter was movie struck and that she came out west to California -fornia because everyone used to tell her how beautiful she was and she wanted to pursue a career in modeling acting. The reason people still come to La to this day. This is really up up. That isn't we do do that. Yes unethical things all the time for this sort of information. This was one of the things that happened all the time. This is really bad so it was only after. She gave his information about her daughter. Elizabeth who she loved and adored and was. I'm sure happy to rave about out thinking that she'd want a beauty contest that she learned the real truth about why these reporters were calling. Her daughter had been murdered. Murdered her ethically in her body had had been desecrated. Here's Elizabeth's mother. phoebe short discussing her daughter in an interview that was conducted many years after the murder. She was very Korea and affectionate sweet girl and if she was out at night Gio is stopped in my bedroom to talk and then she would talk and talk and tell everything she had done and everything and now here's Mary a childhood friend of Elizabeth's full statuesque risk and had a real warmth about her. She loved people th- reporters have their storyline storyline and now they had to flush out their characters in this horror movie. They didn't know who the monster was for now. QB described as a sex ex- fiend slayer or the Werewolf murderer but the victim. The victim story would be portrayed initially as a cocktail of pretty small town girl who moves to Hollywood set to become a star. Elizabeth Short was born in Hyde Park Massachusetts. She lived with four sisters and her mother their father had left the family in nineteen thirty. Already she attended Medford High School and a friend of hers said Doddie. which is sister betty who they often called? Elizabeth and I were going to be movie. Stars is a quote we were all in trance. With movie stars starstruck. We spend hours talking about movie stars about going to Hollywood. We performed using the shorts front porch as a stage and Elizabeth left school early because of a long Aleman which led her to warmer climates. She waited tables in Miami where she met a Flying Tigers pilot named Matt Gore. Let's find in titus. It's just a name of a squadron. So he was like a fighter pilot. Flying Tigers is like a a military coup. Thanks and so he was soon sent overseas and according to Steve Hotels book the Black Dahlia Venture. She reportedly wrote him twenty seven letters in the first eleven days that he was gone. She moved Out to Santa Barbara in January of nineteen forty three and she told friends that court proposed to her in April of nineteen forty five but tragically. He was killed in a plane crash few months later Elizabeth then went back to Miami then back to Massachusetts then finally to Hollywood and her mother told reporters at Elizabeth was in a few movies but the actors strike dried up roles so she was taking a break and living in San Diego but just days later the narrative began to turn on Elizabeth and the reporters. Were happy around with it. They talked with Lynn Martin. A former roommate of Elizabeth's in the to actually lived together when a group of nine girls all showed a place on north north Cherokee Avenue in Hollywood. And it's literally blocks from where we sit at this moment will and also that just reminds me of when we're younger and we shared a house with a bunch of girls. We had five live girl remains but we had crystal Lacey also living with us so we were at least seven. Oh always living in a house on what was visit Omar. Yeah up in Hollywood too so this is a very very common narrative for people who just drive in La. It's like you don't know one in. LA is from La. So it's like we're all coming here together and and you WanNa find friendships and you end up living in a house with a bunch of girls and that's how you sort of start your life. Here it's blocks from where we're sitting at this very moment and Lynn. Elizabeth Elizabeth Roommate was only fifteen at the time and she was an aspiring singer and actor and she painted a picture of the lifestyle that she elizabeth and women like them were leading at this time she said to the examiner. There are many like me. Women had meager salaries who are forced to accept pickups in pickups isn't really lia term that we're all familiar with in this day and age would pick ups were men would by women dinner and then possibly pay for other sort of essentials. Maybe utilities utilities. Maybe this that and they sort of took care of these women and they learn that after Elizabeth Short moved out of the Cherokee House. She moved to a studio Jio City Motel with another group of young women there. They learned that Elizabeth quote had a different boyfriend every night. Which I think is an unfair statement but it is what it is? Yeah so the police worked track down the various men in her life and they started with Joseph fickling. Elizabeth Elizabeth had told friends that she was once engaged to this man but he denied it and the Times reported that he was wary of the girls feelings for him and uncertain that Romance. It's might not be any more permanent than her interest in more than twenty other boyfriends so fickling actually sent her a hundred dollar money order in December of nineteen forty six and. She wrote him a letter a week before her murder but he had an alibi and was cleared so the papers talked about details like the former roommate. Who Said Elizabeth used to sit at the bar angle her leg so people could catch a glimpse of the Rose Tattoo on her thigh another frontal the La Times quote? She was always going out and she loved to prow the boulevard. We know before you move on though. I WanNa talk about Tattoo in this era. Yeah in what do we know about it. Do you know anything about like tattoos. Tattoos Tattoos back in the forties forties. They were definitely more male upper sailors and things like that women getting tattoos. No it was not nearly comet it is it is now but anyways about her friends. They allegedly were hinting that she was a sex worker and within a few days the narrative started started to change. She was now a wannabe. starlet turned desperate. Hollywood party girl. The media was as cold as brutal towards women then as it is now times change but they stay they stay the same. It's at this point that the media was portraying Elizabeth to be involved in sex work and things of of that nature but there was no truth to that. Here's Harry Hansen. He's no longer live but he was one of the original Black Dahlia detectives on the case..

She was determinedly single and refused to marry before and during her reign instead she often often spoke of herself as the spouse or mother of the kingdom she dressed in lavish clothing and kept a tight grip on how her likeness was portrayed to the public. As nearly always the case with monarchy's the question of establishing an air was seen as paramount by many during Elizabeth's rule all while the development of the Virgin Clean Persona was helpful.

The last prophet book in the Old Testament is Malachi so inbetween Malachi and the New Testament. There's about four hundred years have passed and do not have a fresh word from God.

Herod the great as this King of this local area which is basically mostly Jews Syria Ten percent of of the population is noble and ninety percent are carrying the weight for the ten percent to keep them wealthy to keep them well off and so people are up to their ears. And even Jews are factions and groups like the Pharisees and the seas and the zealots and so even within their own community everybody's fractured. So this is a very tough moment of Dartmouth in the in the history of it's very fraught and I think I think it's a fair statement to say. Messiah talk was rampant. There are a lot of pretenders there are a lot of people presuming and a proposing themselves as Messiah so the idea that context feeding to the story is particularly interesting because Uh We must assume a lot of those were self-imposed titles he just a guy who was like in the fair. I think that was a pickup line. I saw cross my macaroni caroni and I think on the Messiah now girl so you WanNa go out but none of them had that kid rock. Bollywood Hey guess what it is is is is the kiss of destiny. So why don't we get directly into the text because there is a lot of tax cuts hug about in today's episode so starting out Luke One verse five. In the days of haired King. Today there was a priest Zachariah of the division of Aba. I don't know maybe. And he had a wife from the daughters of Aaron and her name was Elizabeth and with righteous for God walking blameless and all the community and statues of the Lord Word but they had no child because Elizabeth was born and both were advanced in years. Do you think now Lucas a doctor. Luke is writing this book blue. Okay Okay Lucas. Note New Testament. Dr Patrick Quinn met. I don't want to share my man like take blood. Maybe like I duNNo. Bat Back. Tradition said that Zachariah could have divorced her to marry baby mamas because to not have a kid was a big deal. Sure because it most people thought we've been cursed by God because there's something wrong with you you're a bad person like Zachariah pre so it's feel like this was like well Elizabeth. Well No. You're not wrong and that was like a note because I don't know there's maybe Eric can speak more to this. But if you have a kid I feel like it wasn't always like him is a her. I don't know let's figure it out. I think it was always just like it's her. She's the problem I mean. Hello if he's redes- filled with eighty-eight it could be. I could look no shade regis. He doesn't seem particularly fertile. In this moment right. And that's okay. You're not supposed to be eighty eight. Did you know because you mentioned earlier. We mentioned him here in this. I do you know who is a distant relative of no come on we may have referenced in our last episode. Mystery saw himself interesting. I did not know that that's interesting. Two roads diverged twin. Would big time interesting okay. I say now while he was serving as priests for God when his vision was on duty according to the customer the priesthood. He was chosen by to enter the Temple of Lord and burn incense so this is saying stuff modern context. I don't really know what this is like. It feels like something important happening. But I don't really know the extent of the importance so he's going into the priests would go into the holy of holies and he would burn incense so it's like a fragrance to God and this is like during the time of prayer and their thousands literally. This was twice a year right so this was thousands of priests and it. It lasts a week. There are thousands of priest. So you have to do a lottery to figure out who gets to be the priest who gets to light the infant so it's actually quite the luck of the God God Almighty it. It'd be because I've never been to me. This was always kind of glossed over and it was like he did a thing and then stuff happened. I saw anywhere from up to twenty thousand priests were involved in this and I think like I put in context like I can understand. This'll be like Working for Amazon. And someone being like. Guess what you've won the right to shine. Jeff bezos is bald head. It's you this year. It's the biggest deal. Thank you so much like singing. The role national anthem. It's a very big deal. Also because it's God like it is literally God it's like the preeminence of your whole way of life. You're the guy this year well and you. No people were like God is doing the lottery. Yeah these are these are people who really would be like. Oh I must be really important. Yeah US and so if you think about it. They might have this reputation of if if you've been cursed that's why you have a kid. This is like a big so I would think for their family. This is already like a big win. Because they're constantly having to deal with the shame of not having a baby. Yeah we're sending a camp is something going on. This is like a big win for the family to be like wait. Wait Yeah I get to be the guy. This is such a big deal. My Man's American idol this year. So that's a big deal so so don't forget that feeds into like the importance of this story is my favorite part about. The holidays is reconnecting with family.

Am not supporting him in the in the primary, but whoever whatever democrat, I don't. It might be a socialist. That's again, I all I care about is the country being better. I don't care about like, oh, you didn't choose my candidate of Elizabeth warrants. I'm not gonna vote. I'm gonna. Let Trump president ruin lives, ruined millions. People's lives because I'm mad that my favorite can't. It wasn't chosen. No, I don't care if it's an outright socialists or something that I mean again, I kinda liked that, but whoever I'm trying to think of the example, whatever, whatever liberal it is and Biden would be one of them. I'm not rooting for Biden in any way, shape or form. But if he's the, he's the guy, then I will be voting for him in the general. So. All right. Let me know. I feel about this again. I absolutely mean no disrespect to any native American tribes. I fully think what Elizabeth Warren said is is valid that they determine their citizenship. I don't think anyone should be taking a test and utilizing some minor DNA result to say that your native American you shouldn't be doing that. Don't do that. I wouldn't do that, but I just think we're being all too fair to deal with more did. So that's my view. Oh, and then Finally, I wanted to bring up Aaron rabbi, of course, the philosophies in space said it really great. I. Think and this is just in in regard to the like, oh, you played into Trump's hand thing. That's, that's another thing people you. He played right into it and said, can everyone please clarify for me what the correct game is to play against the pigeon shitting on the board while thirty percent of the country laughs and calls that winning is that the Rousseau gambit. I really want to understand the move that all her detractors are sure would have worked better against the people who are lighting, the whole game store and fires we speak as I don't. It's so funny how man I, I really gotta get out here, but because it's been such a long episode, but it's people think that unless so in a battle with Trump's of, let's say there's one of these altercations which they're like with stormy Daniels, like with Elizabeth Warren. In this instance, it's almost as though people think if Trump doesn't immediately catch on fire or somehow quit the presidency that he that just means he want like whatever it is he want Elizabeth Warren see at backfired. Did it? What decides that? What? What determines that? The fact that he's still president? Yeah, we'll, he will still be present no matter what he's proven. He can say any number of stupid, factually inaccurate things. And then you can take the fact that he's still president and used that to say while I guess he was right about that. He knows. As planning a hell of a game? No, he's president because people keep him in office because he has Republicans protecting its, there's no game you can play as as Aaron. His capturing that really funny comment. There's nothing you can do that's going to ever heal trouble just stop. Oh, you're right. You got me. I apologize. No, he will never do that. There's nothing sh she didn't play into his hand or out of his hand or any combination of that. She, I think did something that I don't blame her for doing. Maybe you could argue strategically she should have done something else.

"Oakland, she will marry England. The text at the end of the movie says that she never saw Dudley in private again. Although on her deathbed, she said to have whispered his name, then it finished by saying that Elizabeth's reign, which lasted for another forty years was called the golden age because it saw England rise to become the richest and most powerful country in Europe. Like most of the scenes we learned about in the film, the overall gist of this has some basis in truth, but there's more to the story. It is true that Elizabeth never married. Many historians believe the reason for her refusing to marry one of the numerous suitors who proposed might have had a little bit more to do a some sort of knowledge that she was infertile. Remember the whole reason everyone wanted her to get married was so she could secure an air if she knew she couldn't do that. Marriage wouldn't have been as big of a deal to her, but all of that is up for debate. In fact, there have been many debates among historians over the centuries. About the real reason why Elizabeth never married. It's one of those things that simple to know for sure without getting inside the mind of someone from history, and we're certainly not going to settle that debate here on this episode and the end. All we know is that Elizabeth never married despite almost fifty years of considering offers from suitors as for whether Elizabeth whispered Roberts name on her deathbed. That's something else. We don't really know. The truth of it certainly has been rumored to be true, but it's not something that we can verify just like, we don't really know if they saw each other and private. We know they saw each other again publicly after all. Robert became the Earl of LeicesteR and fifteen sixty four. And as such worked alongside Williams e- SEL Francis Wapping him in matters of foreign policy for Elizabeth when it comes to their romantic relationship, though Robert analysts were never together in any official capacity. Instead, Robert deli, married, lettuce, Knowles, and fifteen. Seventy eight and Elizabeth never really seemed to get over it ten years after marrying lettuce on September. Fourth fifteen eighty eight, Robert Dudley suddenly fell ill and passed away. He had seen the Queen just a week prior. We're not entirely sure what his cause of death was. But many historians agree. It could have been some form of summit cancer. His death was so an expected. It was said the Queen hid herself in her room for a week. We don't really know if that happened. After Queen Elizabeth died on March twenty four th sixteen or three. There was a letter found among her personal belongings on her bedside on the outside was written. In the queen's hand, his last letter inside was a letter written by Robert to Elizabeth just six days before he passed away. This episode of based on a true story.

And of course you can always watch the second movie in the series called Elizabeth the golden age.

Maybe at some point in the future, we'll get to cover that one here on the show as well.

Number three, the Duke of Norfolk was a part of the plot to murder the Queen. Did you find out which one is ally? The lie is number two, despite many suitors, and to the chagrin of many in her courts. Queen Elizabeth was never married as we learned toward the end.

"Her to marry a Royal partner from another country. The two primary ones we see in the film are George Tony's character, the king, Philip second of Spain who sent an ambassador to propose and Vincent ca cells character that Duke eventu- naturally, there's going to be quite a few details in their fictionalized for the film, but the basic gist of all of that is true. It was an early fifteen fifty nine when Elizabeth turned down the hand of king Philip the second of Spain, but the pressure from many around her continued to not. The only form a bond with an external allied, but to solidify the chance for a male heir to the throne through a room urge. And yet just like the movie shows Elizabeth remained single. But that brings us to the Duke of Anjou in the movie. We see this relationship breaking off when we see Vincent ca cells version of engine crossdressing when Kate blankets version of Elizabeth walks in she laughs and leaves effectively ending her courtship with Anju. That specific scene isn't necessarily one pulled straight from history, but it illustrates a point that some historians believed to be true, simply put the idea that the Duke events you both was a suitor for Queen Elizabeth, the first and might have been gay, but there's a lot more to the story. Let's start by clarifying which Duke venue were referring to since that's a title that's been held by multiple people. And this particular case, it could be confusing because there were two different people who held that title than proposed to Elizabeth none at the same time, of course, and that there were multiple suitors for the Queen of England. Wasn't that uncommon. I couldn't find. Verified number in my research. But some places said she had twelve suitors other said twenty to thirty while others just left at vague it several as for the Duke vans you though there were two Francis and Anri since the movie doesn't really give dates. We can't really know for sure when these scenes with Vincent cassette version of the Duke events you are happening. But the movies version of NGO was on re. We know this because it was in fifteen seventy when unreal into the picture as a suitor for lesbian as a way of bolstering relations between France and England. But then after sending to the throne in France in fifteen seventy four, there started being reports that the now king unreal. The third was having sexual encounters with men in his court. It's not something that he was open about because he was quite fervently Catholic and well, the Catholic church saw homosexuality a sin after everything. We've learned about Elizabeth and Kerr dealings with Catholicism. In England. It didn't leave a good taste their mouth for the Catholic faith. So the religious differences were enough to keep Elizabeth uninterested in on re. And quite honestly, probably the other way around to since she was more Protestant. There were some reports of on raven referring to Elizabeth as a whore. Not really the kind of thing you'd expect to hear between two lovers. It was something led by politics as were many of the suitors for Elizabeth. Oh, and even though he doesn't make his way onto the screen in the movie, the Duke of Junie Frances, he got the title. After on re became king, came into the picture as a suitor Elizabeth in fifteen seventy eight. In fact, it was Francis who was the longest running suitor Elizabeth. She considered his proposal for about a decade back in the movie. There's a couple scenes where we see someone trying to kill Cate Blanchett's version of Elizabeth. The first scene where we found out the queen's life was in danger happened when we saw her riding along with Dudley in a boat, then suddenly a body falls near the Queen. A moment later aero lanes just inches from her face. We never see the shooter in this case, but then. Later on. We do see Daniel Craig's character, a priest named John Ballard who is there to harm the Queen with help from the Duke of Norfolk. There's another scene where Daniel Craig's character nearly gets to the Queen, but she's pulled away to the scene of one of Lisbon's ladies in waiting being murdered. It seemed that she wore one of Lisbeth dresses that was laced in poison. As with most of the things we've looked at so far, these specifics of the scenes were of course made up for the film, but the overall gist of these plots against the life of Queen Elizabeth has some base truth. Even though we don't see many of the people driving the plot. There was a plot to kill Elizabeth around this time, and we now know it as the Ridolfi plot that began around fifteen seventy or fifteen seventy one the year after Henry entered the picture as a suitor for Elizabeth, the plot got its name from the main conspirator Roberto Ridolfi who worked as a banker in merchant and was trusted by many of the leaders in Elizabeth's court. But there's one thing revert. Oh, didn't like about Elizabeth. You guessed it? Religion or Berta was Catholic and. He was determined to do something to help regain the English Catholics to their previous stature, as the one true religion in England. Simply the plot was to simultaneously murder Elizabeth to establish a new ruler in the form of Mary. Stuart also known as Mary Queen of Scots, but killing Elizabeth wouldn't be enough. They need some military backing. So Ridolfi and his co conspirators reached out to king felt the second of Spain Pope-eye the fifth and the Spanish governor general of the Netherlands, the Duke evolve. It was revert owes work. It's banker that helped him travel internationally. So often without much suspicion king Philip the second by the way was also one of Lisbeth suitors at one point. Oh, and although the movie doesn't mention this at all. Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned in England around the year fifteen sixty eight. She was kept in prison in various councils around England by Elizabeth for the next eighteen years or so until she was executed in fifteen eighty six. Of course, the movie doesn't really mention that because we see more of it in the second movie Eliza. With the golden age. So we'll learn more about Mary's part of the story and more about how yet another plot to work with these Spanish to establish Mary Stuart on the throne of England came about when we cover that movie as for Ridolfi plot, though the point of bringing this banish military into the picture wasn't to have them annex England, but rather help secure the throne that would then be handed over to Mary Stuart for his part in this the Duke of Norfolk or Thomas Howard. As we learned his real name was tied himself into the plot by reading a statement to confirm he was indeed a Catholic and would back in English revolt against Elizabeth backed by the Spanish. What he got onto this was that Thomas would be married to Mary Stuart after she was given the throne of England. Oh, and maybe it's just me, but I didn't really think the movie did a very good job of explaining Mary. Queen of Scots was the daughter of Mary have g the woman we see running this plot, she's played by fanny Ardant in the movie. So the plot of the poison dressed to kill Elizabeth that the film puts on Mary of key was this plot to put her daughter also named Mary very confusing on the throne of England. But as we know from history that didn't happen, Roberto Ridolfi plot was uncovered in April fifteen seventy one when his messenger was discovered in the English port city of Dover with letters that incriminated a number of people. One of them none other than Thomas Howard, the Duke of Norfolk. Just like the movie shows. He was beheaded for his part in the plot that happened in June fifteen seventy two, which brings me to one of the other conspirators. We see in the movie Mary of g the retaliation we see in the film is that Elizabeth orders, Geoffrey Rush. Version of, sir, Francis Walzing him to kill Mary for her part in the plot. That's something that people have speculated, but there's not really enough proof to say one way or another. If that's what happened, Mary herself diagnosed, the illness that led to her death as drops or more commonly known today as a Dima. That's an excessive accumulation of fluid beneath the skin. It's both quite painful in and Mary's case led to her death. Although it is true that Mary GI was Catholic and wanted her daughters claim on the throne to be validated by the pope, denouncing the legitimacy of Elizabeth's claim to the throne. It's not likely she had involvement and Roberto Ridolfi plot most likely because Mary of g died in fifteen sixty about ten years before Ridolfi plot was uncovered. However, with the plot uncovered and Norfolk's attempt at taking the thrown away from illegible, finished the movie draws to a close as we see Elizabeth declare that she will not take a husband.

"Just before being taken herself. She was beheaded the same day. Oh, and you guessed it? Lady. Jane grey was a Protestant something that clearly worked against her. The leader of the rebellion. Thomas Wyatt was also being held in the tower and on March fourteenth. He was put on trial. The prosecutors tried their best to implicate Elizabeth. In the plot, the even rack Thomas torturing him in an attempt to bring Elizabeth name into it according to the records of the trial, Sir. John born said he had quote labored to makes her Thomas White confess concerning the lady Elizabeth. But unsuccessfully, though torture had been applied and quote. Despite lacking proof as it turns out when the Queen and the Catholic church are coming after you proof isn't always needed on March eighteenth fifteen, fifty four. Mary used this as an excuse to arrest her Protestant half sister, Elizabeth on the charges of being involved in Wyatt's rebellion. For a couple of months. Elizabeth was in the tower of London, then on may twenty second. She was placed under the watch of, Sir, Henry bedding field. He was the Lieutenant of the tower of London at the time, the captain of the guard. So for the next year or so, Elizabeth wasn't a hospice where, sir, betting field at the Royal palace of Hatfield. In the meantime, Mary dealt with her pregnancy. Well, what she thought was her pregnancy. At least it was almost exactly a year later in April fifteen fifty five when Elizabeth pops back into the picture after apparently restoring favor, Elizabeth was invited back to Mary's court to help tend to what must be the late stages of her half sister's pregnancy. In July fifteen, fifty five, Mary stomach, stop swelling. She wasn't pregnant. Moreover, Mary turn this into an opportunity to punish the heretic. Protestants even more by convincing herself that her inability to have a child was punishment from God for allowing prod. Autists in her kingdom, things must have gotten tents again for Lisbeth while the movie makes it seem like things were happening quickly. Here. It wasn't until years later that Mary fell ill. Mary's husband, the Prince, Philip of Spain, visited Marion fifteen, fifty seven. This led Mary to believe she was pregnant yet again, and she decreed that after her baby was born. The following year, Phillip would be made region until the child grew to be on the other hand, if the child didn't survive, Elizabeth would take over and may fifteen fifty eight, Mary fell ill and on November seventeenth fifteen fifty eight, Mary passed away as it turned out, she wasn't pregnant after all, which meant Elizabeth officially began her rain that same day going back to the movie. We see this happen when Kate Blanchett version of Elizabeth receives. Notice that the Earl of Sussex has arrived. She goes out to meet him in a beautiful green meadow underneath a massive tree. It's here that Sussex. Gives Elizabeth the ring that was on Mary's finger and indication that Mary has passed. After handing her the ring Sussex and all those witnessing defend bow and exclaim long live the Queen. Elizabeth then said, this is the Lord's doing. It is marvelous in our eyes. That's a quote from the bible. Psalm one hundred eighteen verse twenty three to be more precise, and it is a common belief that these were the very first words Elizabeth uttered upon hearing of Mary's death. The first words of Elizabeth's reign as for whether this scene is true. Well, that's a little hard to prove. Remember this was happening in November fifteen fifty eight. And while I couldn't find the weather records for fifteen fifty eight in the town of Hatfield in Hertfordshire England where the palace of Hatfield was located, I highly doubt that it was that beautiful scene. We saw the film. However, just like psalm one hundred eighteen twenty three is commonly thought to have been Elizabeth's first words as Queen. So too is the belief that she uttered them underneath the massive oak now known as the Queen. Elizabeth oak. I say, now known as because that tree is still there. Some legends suggest the tree was already about four hundred years old. When king Henry the eighth danced around it with Angolan if he visit the grounds of Greenwich park today, you'll find this plaque alongside the remains of the oak lying on the ground. This ancient tree known as Queen. Elizabeth oak is thought to have implanted in the twelfth century, and it has been hollow for many hundreds of years. It has traditions linking it with Queen Elizabeth, the first king Henry the eighth in his Queen and bolan. It may also have been a walkup for fenders against park rolls. It died in the late nineteenth century and a strong growth of Ivy supported it until it collapsed in June of nineteen ninety. One. The English oak alongside was planted by his Royal highness, the Prince, Philip Duke of Edinburgh, cagey, KT, baron, Greenwich on third December nineteen ninety two. The tree was donated by the Greenwich historical society to Mark the forty years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth the second. So even though the tree isn't alive anymore, it's still resting on its side near the place where it once stood. No, when I probably should point out that Queen Elizabeth oak. Is some twenty one miles or about thirty four kilometers to the south of Hatfield house. Their current house that stands on the grounds with Royal palace of Hatfield was during Elizabeth's time. If the events we see in the movie where true that means would have found out about the Earl of Sussex from inside the Royal palace of Hatfield, and then travel the twenty miles or so from the north side of London to the southeast side to meet the Earl while it's possible. She made that trip the distance, coupled with timing being in November, probably very cold and not necessarily that you know the summer day that looks like in the movie, kind of makes me think that the scene that we saw in the film probably didn't exactly happen that way speaking of which going back to the movie. The next major plot point happens when we see Elizabeth dancing with Joseph finds character Robert Dudley after the to dance together in the center of a crowd in the ballroom, we see Robert and Elizabeth sleep together. As we've seen happen multiple times throughout the film. So far those two scenes are fictional, but they're depicting something that was very real by that. What I mean is that it is true Queen. Elizabeth had a romantic interest in a man named Robert Dudley. We've already talked about him a little bit, but this whole romance between Robert and Elizabeth did happen. Or did it truth is we really don't know for sure the extent of their relationship. One thing we do know is that Elizabeth and Robert were good friends. It's been said that Robert claimed quote, he knew her better than anyone else from when she was eight years old and quote. We also know that eight years before Lisbeth became Queen when Robert was just eighteen years old in the year, fifteen fifty. Something happened that the movie doesn't really mention. He married the daughter of Norfolk. Gentleman named Amy Rob's art. Despite this, there were still plenty of rumors of a relationship between Elizabeth and Robert who became her master of the horse upon her ascension to the throne. That's mostly ceremonial position today, but during Robert's day was an important position, even though the movie doesn't really mention dates by the time fifteen fifty nine rolled around. It was clear to almost anyone in the court that Elizabeth and Robert were in love during all of this ROY. Robert was still married to Amy, although she didn't follow him to court. Oh, and not to get too far ahead of our story. But Amy Dudley died in fifteen sixty when she fell down some stairs and broke her neck at the time, there weren't any charges pressed, but many historians consider her death to be well suspicious back in the movie despite what we see the relationship with Robert and Elizabeth, it's clear that most of the people in her court expect her
"elizabeth" Discussed on Based On a True Story
"March third, two thousand thirteen. A new TV show premiered on the history channel. It marked a bit of history as the first fully scripted series by the history channel. As of this recording Vikings is still in production. And while it is based on one of the best known Norse legends, it's one of those TV shows that I've always wanted to watch, but Nimick around to checking out. So if you're fan of Vikings, I'd love to hear what you think history channel's Vikings was created and written by Michael Hurst while I haven't checked that one out yet. I've watched one of Michael's earlier shows Showtime's the tudors as the name implies the tutors tells the story of the realty in England, Henry the eighth and bolan and the stories of their salacious courts that brings us to our movie today, which is very much in line with the tutors before working on either the tutors or Vikings. Michael Hirst wrote two movies that together told the story of king Henry the eighth and end Boland's daughter Queen Elizabeth. The first today we're going to be looking at the first of those movies released. In nineteen ninety eight simply called Elizabeth. I'm Dan, the Feb and this is based on a true story. It's time for two truths and a lie. If you knew the show, here's how it works. I'm about to say three things. Two of them are true, which means that one of them is ally. Are you ready? Okay. Here they are. Number one. Elizabeth was imprisoned by her sister before she rose to the throne before Elizabeth Russia. The throne that is number two, Robert Dudley, and Queen Elizabeth were secretly married. Number three, the Duke of Norfolk was a part of the plot to murder the Queen. Got him. Okay. Now, as you're listening to our story today, you'll find the two facts scattered throughout the episode. And then by a simple process of elimination, you'll know which one is ally. And then of course, at the end of the episode, we'll do a recap to see how you did. Now. If you listen to the hausky me episode just a few weeks ago, you'll know about the changes to the show. But before all of that, a couple of people signed up to be producers of based on a true story back when I could guarantee movies. Covered? Not like our last episode Black Hawk Down our movie today is another honoring those commitments for folks who signed up before the changes. And speaking of which this episode is a request from based on a true story producer, Melissa, thanks so much for your support. Melissa actually Melissa requested. I cover both the movie Elizabeth, and its sequel Elizabeth, the golden age. And while at some point, I'm hoping to do the second film in the series at some point before we do that, we actually have to cover the first film. So without further ado, let's get started by comparing history with Hollywood version of Elizabeth. The movie opens with the bit of text to set the scene. We're in England in the year fifteen fifty four king Henry the eighth is dead. England is divided between Catholics and Protestants in the new Queen is Henry's oldest daughter, Mary who is a devoted Catholic. What strikes fear into the heart of the Catholics in power is that Mary doesn't have a child meaning? Should she pass than the line of succession would go to Mary's half sister, Elizabeth, who's Protestant. That's all true. Although it is greatly simplified and for good reason, it's a very complex and fascinating tale of politics that honestly, we don't have time to cover in a ton of depth on this episode. But if you haven't already, I'd recommend checking out the episode about the movie. The other Balint girl where we learned about king Henry the eighth and one of his wives and BA Lynn and a nutshell for our story today, though, king Henry the eighth wanted an air, a male heir, Henry and Catherine did have a daughter Mary who was born in fifteen sixteen. The movie doesn't mention this at all, but it was the very following year in fifteen seventeen. When Martin Luther pinned his ninety five theses to the door of All Saints church while there's been dispute among historians about whether or not he actually did that. But what we do know is that he sent them to the archbishop of manse on October thirty first fifteen seventeen a day that has since become known as ref. Formation day the ninety five theses were essentially what kicked off the Protestant reformation. We can get his deep as we want into the theology of religion, but let me try to give a brief overview of the basic concept of the reformation. It was a stand against the Catholic church. So the Catholic church at the time believed and preached that the pope was God's Representative on earth at such. For the most part, anything the pope said was taken as God's word. Most people at the time couldn't read. So they relied very heavily on what their priests told them even more so than today. But with Johann Gutenberg, inventing the printing press in fourteen thirty six more
