Another Group Favored By Chicago's Loretto Hospital Exec Got Vaccinated Early
"Hospital is accused of giving covert 19 vaccines to another group of ineligible recipients. According to W Be easy. Nearly 30. People from a neighboring Grethe Orthodox Parish got the shot earlier this month without qualifying. Others with connections to the hospital leadership have been able to do the same, including judges and workers at Trump Tower, Ah, high end jewelry store and a steakhouse mere life, it said. Loretta needs to come clean about the extent Repeatedly that Momir we're doing that. But clearly that's not true. And so now it feels like it's death by 1000 cuts for them where I'm quite my understanding is there's at least one other story in the works. So they've got to take care of their business They've got to do. Ah, Folsom applauded and you've gotta own responsibility for what has happened. That is not happened yet. And then they've got a reported the C V P H and truthfully, the mayor is waiting for that internal audit before deciding how to proceed below. Roberto is no longer receiving first doses of the vaccine. The hospital's C 00 has resigned.
The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release

Cleve Jones: Queer Spaces After COVID-19
"The reality is that the Gayborhood are going away. So, if you look at San, Francisco's Castro district or Seattle's Capitol Hill or Washington DC's Dupont circle or boys town in Chicago West Hollywood or anywhere you want to look lavender Heights in Sacramento wherever you look where there's a defined gay neighborhood. It's not just a place where there's bars though bar life has always been an important part of our culture. It's where very important things happen. I is political power. When we are concentrated in specific precinct gives us the power to elect our own public office the the power to defeat our opponents, the power to pass legislation that directly affects our lives in our wellbeing. As we are dispersed. We lose that power. Another super important part of it was the cultural vitality look at all the amazing stuff that's come out of West Hollywood that's come out of my neighborhood I mean it's no coincidence that the rainbow flag and the First Gay Synagogue and the First Gay Film Festival and the Aids Memorial Quilt and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence all were born in the Castro because there's that magic that happens when creative people when choreographers and filmmakers dancers and deejays and painters. Are All in that same area and I. Know that collaboration can occur very effectively online but there's nothing like the magic of face to face contact close proximity for that cultural vitality, and then the third thing that's at risk are the specialized social services for our most vulnerable population. So. Whether we're talking about people like myself who are getting old long term survivors of HIV or queer kids trans kids who were fleeing trump's America where do they go? They can't come to the Castro a little crappy studio apartment in the Castro is going to cost you twenty, five, hundred dollars a month. So this is the reality that nobody's really quite talking about that that community that has given so much and strengthened us in inspired US moved. US forward. Being threatened and there's many factors technology. Many. People will say, Oh, well, we can live anywhere. We want. No, you can't. Tell me that try it. You know go to Duluth and walk down main street and hold hands no offense to duluth or any other city. You Might WanNa try doing that outside of a gayborhood. So we need these these spaces they're important and we need to figure out what's our next move? Do you have a solution. There's no easy solution but yeah, when people say oh, cleave. Cities Change well. Thank you for that brilliant observation. Yes. Of course, it has changed but we want to. Be Thinking about that change and the big factor is that cities have changed in a way. That's profoundly new. For generations since the industrial revolution, the cities were the place where refugees went immigrants, Bohemians, counterculture people, artists, homosexuals, and all these people of all these different backgrounds and ethnicities genders would you know create this these cauldrons of creativity and and they would climb their way up the economic ladder move out to the suburbs and that was really accelerated in the Post Warrior the nineteen fifties, the nineteen sixties, nineteen seventies, the phenomenon of white flight. So when I got to San Francisco, the population of that city had been declining steadily since the end of World War Two and we were able to go into these neighborhoods that had been largely abandoned by the working class immigrants that had built them originally. And create what we created I on Polk Street. Then on Castro and folsom street hate streets you know he's really vibrant communities. These are now some of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world. So the district that gave us Harvey Milk. is now inhabited increasingly by wide heterosexual gendered millionaires when you arrived in San. Francisco, you had a sleeping bag and a couple of shirts and forty two dollars and you were welcomed into this guy's home. You would never met who was not expecting you. It was an address you have from a friend and there was a safe place to live and to get on your feet. Even, if it's not as San Francisco, like that mentality is so unique. I think that's pretty much now partly because it's just so difficult to survive. So the young people I meet in their early twenty S. You know these and of course San Francisco, it's all tech And there's a lot of anger towards the tech invaders but I have a lot of empathy and. Real concern for them because first of all, most of them are working sixty seventy hours a week. They have no job security. There would never use the the phrase exploited workers to describe themselves but are blanche you are but I think also back then and especially in San Francisco it was still Kinda Hippie dippy. And it was very counterculture. It was very communal. And everybody was kind of expected and really encouraged to contribute in some way. You didn't necessarily have to be all that good at what you did, but you needed to do something whether it was a drag show or video or film or A. Poetry contest or something there was A. There was a real nurturing of people's creative pulses and a lot of support for there was so many places I knew where if I was hungry I just show up and there would be every night. There would be a communal potluck dinner. There were probably six or seven of those households within a few blocks of where I was living on Castro Street. So I never went hungry.

"Breathe on world cafe. Gangs. I know. Kate, read. Beth what he got when he got. Kobe dot your dog on these need. We leave. We feed. Really. Good not. All FIT. Frana. What they? Regard right to your. Own. I can't really from the prison music project written and performed by two artists who are incarcerated they go by sincere and baby shell dog. I can't breathe is a phrase that feels very. Very, current right now, very familiar in the moment in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd but that song was written years ago in two. Thousand Fourteen. Zoe. You. Were there for that songwriting session could you describe it for us? So actually that that's a free style and Sincere performed it as a reaction to what was happening at the time, which was the murder of Eric Garner by NYPD and the lack of accountability for the officers involved. Sincere he he called me shortly after George Floyd. was murdered and these protests. Were occurring all over the country as a reaction he was seeing the news he said it. Feels wild that this this phrase again in and my song. Is Relevance. Now six years later, and also at the exact time of the release of this record, which was a complete coincidence. You know it is interesting because. On that track there's the voices of the songwriters but. Most of the songs on this album were written by black men. And Zoe obvious. Of, you are black men. How do you make sure that you're sharing those stories in a way that really centers them and not you? Great Question. It's. Day daily vigilence for sure there's no magic pill. What it often amounts to for a white ally or a a a person who's trying to be an anti-racist though they're not the target of racism is. Centering the voice itself and not doing his little interpreting as possible. De. Centering Whiteness as a white person is heart gives it's definitely are I think are Are. You impulse reaction to. Censor ourselves. Yeah So it's I. Don't think we did it perfectly. At all. It's something that we are continuing to learn and improve, and as we hear feedback about the album. Continuing to learn, but one of the things was including people who were you know in the lives of the folks we're working with and other things just asking the folks in this is part of why the process took. So long is because communication with folks in prison is not as easy as with folks on the outside. Because, there's a lag time. So. Yeah. Getting getting, implanting, getting on decision making on. Production on plus we couldn't even share how the songs release sounded. Except for over the phone, which is terrible way to hear music. That's what I wanted to ask like have the songwriters who are still incarcerated been able to hear these recordings. No they. I'm speaking to Anita Franco and Zoe bookbinder on world cafe today about the prison. Music. Project. we were able to interview all same time, but you did it rain for us to talk to one of the participants in the project Nathan Jackson Browne. Is there anything that you'd like to say about Nathan before we chat with him? Yeah I met him pretty early on in my work inside the prison he was serving seventeen and a half years. He has now been free for six years and we co wrote the song. Villain. And he is very insightful and Yeah I think you're going to have a great time talking to him. Zoe. Omni. Thank you so much for joining me today. Thank you. Thanks for having us. We were.

"All over again. It's one of the songs written by Ken Blackburn an incarcerated man during songwriting workshops at new folsom prison for form today by Zoe, bookbinder on to Franko and I'm speaking with Zoe Omni about the prison music project Okay. So zoey collected all of these songs that have come from these songwriting workshops. And then you reach on Franko to help make it happen on. What was your reaction when Zoe broached you with the idea? Oh no another project that I must do because it must be done because it's Beautiful and compelling. I was I mean we can probably remember I was like, Oh, I can maybe not maybe not I. I can't I can't Oh God. Okay. Let's do this on. You've been outspoken about many issues over your career. So what is it about restorative justice and prison reform that really speaks to you This you can't say to yeah, I mean I was blessed with. A glimmering of awareness when I was quite young. My my first manager I worked with him for twenty five thirty years met him when I was eighteen. And he went to law school at Not long after I met him, he started interning at public defender's office than at a death penalty resource center which used to exist in Austin. Texas. So Through my friendship with Scott and and then. Again? Thirty years of working together where he's by manager. I. became slowly more and more educated about the reality of. This What was then a blooming Know human, rights crisis of mass incarceration in America and I. Think you know if you just don't have any loved ones who are incarcerated or friends of friends if it's not impacting your immediate community very deeply. There's not a lot of ways to be aware of it. It's it can live behind your awareness very easily for a lot of. more privilege people like myself so. You know I just through my songs over the years I've tried to speak to the little awareness that I've had or the the think the gifts I've been given, and so this was just a a A another evolution of that you know to try and share with other people like myself who are not directly impacted. This is happening. It's huge and and let's really address it. What is sort of the main message that you want people to to hear? From you. Can Say oh, this all these people incarcerated but you know how do you hit that home I mean I, guess one of the main messages I guess we could say for this project on all of my you know projects that are similar lease subject you know is that Justice is not blind. We hear this expression we would like to believe it is we would like to believe. Justice is blind and treats everyone equally but the reality is that is very, very far from the truth. So my entry into the work was through the death penalty really becoming aware that. What the statistics are for who? is executed in America that it is very much related. To. An unofficial system of lynching that it very much that? Our whole criminal justice system can be traced very ominously back to slavery You know executions, for instance, are mainly in the south. They are way disproportionately people of Color Etcetera so That was my entry at in my early years of becoming involved I. Think I believed that life without parole is a humane alternative to capital punishment since then my awareness has grown even further to realize life without parole can amount to the longest slowest death sentence. And also the criminal justice system no criminal justice system is perfect. There have been innocent people I work with an organization in. New. Orleans called the innocence project and they work on freeing innocent people who serve dozens of gears again, most them black. Or Brown men so Yeah. There's so many things we want to communicate with this album and this project, but that's one. I'm speaking with Frank, Franco and Zoe bookbinder two of the people behind the collective, the prison music project. So, you weren't allowed to bring recording devices into the prison, but there are some actual recordings of the song writers on a couple of the songs. On this album I'm going to play a clip in a second of the Song I can't breathe I'm not sure which of you would like to take this question. But how did you record the rap on this track? I that is so intriguing and I wish I could push but I respect your no comment. I have a feeling that protect somebody so. I WANNA hear. Let's let's hear a little bit of it because it's it's it's a great track on the on the album. This is a bit of I can't.

"I'm really excited just to sort of bounce between the three of you I might. Wow so powerful. So amazing just a such an awesome I can't wait to kind of deconstruct the story in the story behind it with you. Don't WanNa Kinda get off with you. It probably makes sense it just Kinda like dive into. Before you start actually even showing up at folsom before any of this happened what were you up to sounds like you were you were out in the world doing work as singer Songwriter Jimmy certainly the picture of your world before then I twenty five. So I don't know what? Like twenty, five year old singer-songwriter folksinger. To sort of starting my career I quit this band that I was in with my called vermillion lies and we were like this Vaudeville, very theatrical cabaret. It was in that that cabaret renaissance that happened with dressed in dolls and all of that world we're in that. World and then a I quit that band with my sister and then started doing my own thing and right around the same time I started going into the prison. So I had just really started playing my solo music out in the world when I brought it into new folsom. Yeah. What was at that point in your life? What was music to you or for you if fell lied In. It still feels like it has always felt like as soon as I found it, it was like Oh. Yeah. I can't not make this. This is not a choice I'm making this just pours out of me. I'm GonNa, make it whether I share it with people or not but turns out I really love to share it with people. But at the time. I really wanted to write about things outside of myself. Social issues, political issues. Environmental issues and I never really could figure out. How to do it in a way that felt good it always felt contrived or luxury or. Yeah it fell way to able for sure somehow way more vulnerable than singing about my broken heart. Amen to that. Political songs hard. So hard I was working in the prison and working on those songs that brought me to that over many years took a long time for me to be able to write my own collaborating with folks who I mean it's You know folks who are impacted by incarceration, just their lives and their own stories are. You know it's like a social issue because. Incarceration as a social issue. So just writing about their own experience. It is a political song. So being a part of this collaboration, I think opened that door for me which. Were And Zoe were you on each other's radar at that point or like you kind of just doing a shepherd things any awareness of each other or did that happen later on I mean I certainly knew who she was. I did not know who so he was yet. Until she walked into my living room. Yeah. That was a bunch of years later. Yeah. So you end up going to new FOLSOM, which for those who don't know what that is described, what was it, and when you're showing up on the first day, what do you think that you're going there to do? What do you think your commitment is I'm going there to play three concerts? Yes. So new folsom prison, that's this nickname. The official name is California State Prison Sacramento. and. It's right next to the famous folsom prison, which has lower security new folsom is Neil. It's a newer, very plain looking concrete. Facility three buildings three yards houses about three thousand people. Non consensually. And it's a men's prison the as hopefully most listeners know. The prison system, the criminal justice system Miss, genders people a lot. So there were women trans. Women inside the as well. So I just want to mention that when I call it a men's prison. Yeah, and I was there, I committed to playing three concerts and I'd heard about them in advance. Through the person who who ran the program there he brought in artists to perform and teach workshops and stuff, and so I was there to perform and I was gonNA play in a library. To libraries on two separate yards, and then the one concert we were in contact for a few months before I went in an every couple of weeks he'd email me like are you sure you WanNa do this one concert? This is the one for men in solitary confinement. Are you sure you WanNa do this one it's really intense. and. it will never been one to. Shy away from something That might be yeah like emotionally challenging or. I don't want to hide a reality from myself a reality of our. Society I WANNA see it all even if it's ugly maybe especially if it's ugly because I wanNA know. What we're up against I, want to know why we're fighting and to be able to see it and experience it in that way. Yeah it is intense, but it's helpful. So I said, yes. Even I kept checking in and I kept thinking you're asking me again if I really WanNa do this one concert. Okay. So yeah, that's I. I didn't know really what to expect even though he told me but it's different to hear. To hear him describe it in. He told me you know you're going to be playing for these. People in cages, they'll be in these little cages when you play for them in this little room. And I just. It doesn't matter how much you hear a description of that seeing is. Totally different thing I mean. You know how you feel when you see an animal in a cage. It's a human being so it's just like ample. You know when you go to the zoo and you're like man I'm really sad. Well, you can identify with a human way more than you can identify with an animal and it's just like. I mean I think it's a yeah it's I. Think it's traumatizing to be in that environment even when you're not the person who's being. Caged and so I think about. Prison staff to just anyone who has to be in an environment where that level of dehumanisation is happening on a daily basis. It's. I think it's I really think it's dehumanizing for everyone which is not to. Diminish the fact that it is obviously much much worse and much more unfair for the incarcerated people.

"Exp. Please remember this. podcast comes right out of a free screening series here in Los Angeles. So if you'd like to attend the screening you could sign up at backstory dot net to get free invites and even bring a guest to one of my Qa screenings so sign up. And I'll see you at the movies but now without any further ado. Let's jump right on the stage at the Los Angeles Film School School Right. After I introduced screenwriters Andrew Stanton and Stephanie Fulsome to chat about their latest film Toy Story for well as promised the only place to properly start would be with kids questions. So there's any kid in the House that has a question. I see some someone in the back. What the DUCKIE and his friend get pushed away from the carousel? Well the care so goes around on these horses that are on big rods that go up and down and those rods when you go under the ride poke down and up and down and it just slammed into them so it was an accident. Dangerous to go under CAROUSEL. So that's it's a warning. Whenever you kids? I see another question. Why are bunny inducted? Because they love each other you know they were they were they were sold together. Like they're best friends holding hands becomes a set duckie and bunny. You got their names right.

Just kind of look like a road trip idea of it And we also looked at. It's a wonderful life A little bit of like looking looking back on your life and and what that means but those were pretty much the main references and if you haven't seen them you should see him anyway so and then twice straight three twister. One two three actually. We didn't repeat a gag toy story for means that there were three movies before it all right just making sure the kids question Section is over. Give it up for the kids that had the bravery to ask the questions as we're sitting here the lovely Los Angeles Film School. It's always good to hear how people broke in. And what your past is Stephanie to my knowledge twenty thirteen. You ended up on the blacklist with nineteen. sixty-nine Space Odyssey or how Kubrick learned and to stop worrying and land on the moon. Getting getting on the blacklist definitely changes a lot for people. How how did it change your life? And what were you doing. Up until that point I'd been working various jobs. I'd been writing commercials and just doing various stuff just to pay the bills. A lot of copywriting and so with Ad Agencies Aziz Yeah completely and which actually is pretty good training for work in movies actually just having to go at that pace and turn things around that quickly And then I was thinking that I was never going to get this writing career off the ground and I was like I'm going to have to move into my parents basement. My parents don't even have a basement. Maybe an addict they don't have an attic. Oh my Gosh I'm GONNA it'd be homeless and Out of that frustration. I was like I'm just going to write a script about everything I love which was space and Stanley Kubrick and I kind of took this angle of female. Pr Agent. I'm having to wrangle Stanley. Kubrick faked the moon landing. And I think because it came out like such anger and frustration and things I actually loved it actually. Hit a note with people clinic on the blacklist and then from there because I was on the blacklist and people have such limited attention spans. Just because there's so much material out there it got me to the top of studio listen snags executives read it and looked at it and that got me meeting and it got me on the water bottle Torah. Which is where you go to every studio in town into a song dance like hi right? This is me this is the kind of stuff I like to write. And then from there I got hired to do a couple of studio scientists and then kind of ended up in the Disney family of it all of this to radio. Silence gone through anything getting close to production. Well I mean the move I mean I did a draft of Raga Rock which kind of led to the Gig at Pixar right. You're on credited on which led to the Gay Guy Pixar and then I worked a little bit for Lucasville resistance it stars resistance. Yeah and right now I've I gotten into more TV. So I just did on Lord of the Rings for Amazon Prime and I'm a show and I'm and I'm show running On paper girls which is a Bryan cave on comic for Amazon. Prime is well. That's awesome. When does when does the comic come out for Amazon We're GONNA probably start shooting in the summer so we're looking probably at coming out next year. That's awesome Andrew Obviously mighty mouse. New Adventures was was getting back to the Mesozoic. Okay I'm going. I'm going way back but I think it's before Stephanie was born but that was an for you and it was TV animation. Yeah in that crazy And that was. I got a job right out of college. Cal Arts up here coming out of the animation and Ralph Bakshi was getting into TV. And and little did I know that the gang of us that did this just three or four months job on the new adventures of mine was basically the people that would go on do Simpson's thousands and Ren and stimpy and Batman and And then for me Pixar so it was a it was A. Who's who when you look back? Gainfully unemployed for many years after that. How many years there three okay? which is very long? When you're unemployed I I hate to dwell on on the darkness here but it is difficult because things the nature of the industry there? It's like a roller coaster. There's so many ups and downs either. Have too much work to do or not enough. So how did you kind of keep heap in the game during those years. Keep your wheel spinning. You know some people give up. You wouldn't be where you are today if you gave up. Yeah the lucky thing I did is. I had two student films that we're doing very well in the festival circuit. This is the late eighty s when there was no such thing as an Internet. You couldn't go to youtube watching these short things and so the only way you could see a short animated live action. Video was festival that would show it in the theater. And that's where Pixar and John lasseter showing the Luxeuil lamp shorts and the next one was called Red Stream. And I got to know him through that festival circuit and that's how my name was in the air when they suddenly would from the start startup of Nine or ten people to adding a couple more animators and that was one of the lucky ones so just the right place right time so it's always good to have your work work out there even if it's not being paid for you know it's just so people know you exist and just because this is toy story four. What can you tell us about a fond memory from from working on the first toy story which you did? It just makes me feel older than I want to because I remember so well Like it was yesterday today. What it was like to come up with Those characters in and finding their voices and finding that world and it's like Going back to A comfortable kind of class reunion not with the people working out but with that world whenever we go back I mean it not films are like that. There's there's something unique about the toy we story world where it always felt from the very beginning like we discovered a place that had more to it that went. Beyond your periphery. Sorry and We found so much on the first movie that we couldn't put in the first one and ended up using so much stuff that was discovered and talked about in theorized on on the second one and even some made it into three And of course there's all this thinking that goes on with the other films and so it it really is like a land that you get to go visit and every time you you pick more corners and directions to go and find more I. I really enjoyed watching watching the bonus features on the BLU ray and of this movie and there was a moment where there's a license plate and they say that the license plate was actually code. That destroyed lead the movie Toy Story Two by accident and they had to go restored from somebody's hard-drive which I think was really strange fact. I'm just curious. was there ever that moment moment on Toy story the first movie when you guys were pioneering so far not just story wise of what you were doing but with the technology where you weren't sure that it was gonna come out the computer computer the way that you needed it to Not to my maybe that was an everyday occurrence for the tech people but I had been raised to ignore all the limits and just just always press for more. What if we did this? What if we did that so I was Constructively ignorant about anything thing that any limits so that we were always just shooting for the stars before we get to this film. You're you're a part of what's known as the pick. Our brain trust which includes Brad Bird. Leon Creek Pete Doctor. That's four of you if there's a dispute aside from a thumb wrestling match. How do you guys win each other over because There it does seem to be a swing vote. It's it's it's not structured like that. It's not a voting system or that everybody has to agree It never was what it was was is a gang of people that bumped into each other and found that we jammed really great together like a like a garage band and we only had to give it a name. Once we got so large that there was more than one film being made at the same time and so just wanted the same Voodoo of Pierre Guidance that we just naturally did without anybody thinking that there was no process on the first film and so it's basically the way I always put it is We formed a band. Let's call it the Beatles and suddenly they said great You made a great first first album but the only way financially we can exist is if you make four albums and you have to all individually make one so that we can make them in time. We're we're like well. The only reason that album was good is because we stay together as a band so we had to find a way to branch out and make more movies at once but still use the chemistry of whatever made us us good in the first place and so we called it the brain trust just so that there was some name to who had to get into the room to help get that Mojo but it's never never been a judge and jury it's never been in a voting system. It's just literally. How do we get that spark that happens? When these people play in a room together there was a movie? I saw a few years ago that I really liked It was a trilogy or so we thought Toy story three. It had a really good ending. People were kind of bummed. Like there's not gonna be anymore Tory story but to my knowledge you're the one that was carrying the torch That there was still more story to tell so. So how at what point did you realize that. There's there's no reason you need to be locked in with the the commonality of of a trilogy structure and that you could continue to make toy story movies The minute we thought of three of four really. Yeah Yeah I mean not the whole thing part and parcel it was all. These movies are like drawing blood and I'm trying to figure out how to how they work But the idea that there was more to the world and more to be said had was always there. I had this epiphany after a two day. Retreat when we're trying to figure out how to what toy story three should be and and what broke me out of it and got us to the whole thing of like what if they. What if we stop being scared of time like literal time mm-hmm and let andy go to college and everybody laughed in the room and then kind of got sober? What if we did that and we realized this is why we go to the movies? Go to the movies to be surprised. We go to the movies to go places that we don't expect and in that same moment. I thought what what if what these had been books that we had made. What you're getting PECAN? How weird my brain goes? But I'm like what if these were existing children's books that we were always made these movies from and then I 's image in my kids room of like three red bound books. That were the Andy Years. Here's and three red bound books that were green bound books that were the Bonnie years and three blue books. That would be somebody else's and I realized these toys mixing and matching could go. Oh forever with different kids in different directions because the world of that grand in that broad and kids are that interesting in that different in ages and environments and so the experience of what toy could experience is is infinite. When you just go with the truth of it? Not Not trying to think of franchise not try. I don't think like that. I just think of like this place really exists these toys really go through what we go through.
How Winston Churchill defeated Nazism despite his 'black dog'
"Now today on the show visual defend our island whatever they got maybe we should fight on the beaches on the landing grounds the field and in the street fighting the hill will never surrender churchill the subject of countless plies movies drama series documentaries and biographies indeed believe it or not there have been a thousand Churchill Biographies One thousand the first biography was written in nineteen ninety five and the author of the latest one is our guest today now according to the prominent British columnist and historian Tom and heffer regular guest on this program this most recent Churchill biographies the best single volume imaginable of a man whose life would seem take impossible to get into a single volume the book is called Churchill Walking with destiny and the author is Andrew Roberts who's written other water declined books including a biography on Napoleon and the storm of war a new history of the Second World War Andrew Welcome to ABC Radio Thank you Tony took great on us now as I mentioned they've already been a thousand Churchill books published what's different about yours when I was very fortunate that there's been an enormous amount of sources that have come out over the last five years since I've been writing this book the Queen allows me to be the first Churchill biographer to use of his diaries and came due to sex mets church every Tuesday at the second mobile church who trusted him the great secret civil war and luckily rate down everything churchill say within forty one new sense of papers have been deposed to church college archives in the Cambridge University and other people like the servies investor time I even mice gate rations diaries basic become available giving those same in fact now on top of the dates and accounts of the war cabinet but I discovered six years ago allows me to have some they pretty much every page book it's never appeared in nature to focus okay well let's start with Churchill's upbringing can you tell us about Winston's parents briefly well he's talking to the upper cloth he was a charismatic successful Victorian politician he became chance of Exchan- so you never saw any of genius in Churchill and green to netted frankly they all the Stanford right to any sound full of contempt and to stay and his son Winston continue to love him and Martin and when his father died when Winston was twenty he raises who's focusing in Winston sorry randolph someone's name and he basically didn't allow it to to scream up whereas his mother also route took nations over to she was a great American future in society maybe something offense with the Prince of Wales Austrian about Saddam heels Okay and you went to school did he do you have did you have much luck at school I mean what sort of student was he he was a monster the student and he made himself out to be it's very rare for politicians to try and make themselves out to be thicker than they genuinely All I it should be in fact that being the dumbs 'cause he portrayed himself broke free my life he in fact was in the top third of all the classes ooh okay well let's turn to Churchill politics because he wasn't always a conservative he crossed the parliamentary floor in Nantes in four over the threat four government opposed to free trade in non white at thirty three he was the youngest cabinet member in forty years and then of course he was pretty significant figuring the British military from an early age this is of Relevance to Australians Andrew What do you wrote about his filings glibly in Nineteen fifteen well of course he was responsible for the idea of the of attacking the Straits of the dodgers novels and it was a brilliant idea to come off name one of the great strategic tunes of the of history of all Pfaff but as we all know say silently on the eighteenth of March nineteen fifteen Liane go six ships foods straits and then of course largely town to Him we double down and and landed all the way through fifteen and of course over the next eight months few one hundred forty seven thousand casualties suffered in the in the West Inside Straight so this was a drastic and terrible decision but one boots the real problem came in implementation well yeah okay now we went into politics to elect liberals rejoined the conservatives in the mid nineteen twenties what did he do that because the conservatives came back to the idea of free trade they it'd been the policy that let's say that's the party he joined the Nipples does the Conservatives dumps feature each and David intense you're often attributed with the quite quite I if a man is not a suspect I by the time he's twenty he has no heart if he's not a conservative by the time he's forty he has no brain churchill really say that I am and unfortunately there are lots of great lines like that but he didn't say he might have if you're going to keep going for example make the safest shape about about lady astor drinking coffee around any number of things keeping lucky men like Groucho Marx no power say funny things people with cheating too even if you didn't say those funny things it was talking about Winston Churchill with Andrew Roberts now Andrew your account numerous occasions when Churchill cheated death in your fi. He survived a school stabbing Cuban Bullets Boer Artillery German shells on the western front a near drowning replaying crushes three car accidents and a house fire Croaky and I'm actually very serious mainly at the age of eleven nomadic agent doctors administered brandy to the inevitable and which she wanted to be so you will send you make the point the church will develop the art of seeing virtually everything through the prism of history yeah it was the fact that he wasn't himself from historic congruent several extremely good he's a genius he was widely seen as Virginia wasn't he won the Nobel Prize for literature and actually he's unhappy about that because the price for peace that he was going to win communicants history who actually has been disappointed when he got the Nobel Prize which shop now we talk about a lot of people think of Churchill he's attitude towards the Nazis and Hitler and of course the British policy of appeasement toward Nazi Germany people forget this but in the late thirties it was actually popular with the British people tell us more about how Churchill riled against the spirit of the Times in the lightning thirties well he was only a final team is it's like jeeze you grew up with Jesus father did like the whole day with them they appreciated the service they it says humanity he was honest from quite an early age and saying he had an early warning system came during the Nazis that a lot of the other people in many wrench AC- rights didn't have also were so we mentioned earlier in being an historian he he sold the threat let's go to the European balance of power that we opposed and EDUC- seen fanaticism place in his life in a way that the other primary tonight people standing Naples we will never change and didn't say he was the first major predisposition of the decade the only major politician to not only warn against Hitler Nazis but also talk with an idea about what do I e rearming especially in the air the by the way you know you obviously know John Howard our second longest serving prime minister did you know that he's middle name is Winston it was named by his parents in mid Naughty thirty nine? When as we've discussed Winston Churchill was anything but the flavor of the month he was seen as yesterday's man rod that shows John's parents and Great must be full size. This is searching tremendously impressive actually I didn't know that's in Ann Arbor got I think yeah well during the war Churchill husband and relations with the United States which meant that America applied an important role in helping Britain defeat awesome but what about the altar pace conference towards the end of World War Two was not Churchill's finest hour why well because they back large number of famine of Yugoslavs to to get to Marshal Tito too because he he basically killed them and a hand backlog Germans and ethnic Germans who an ethnic Russians as well actually Cossacks to stone promptly murdered them as well so as far as the share sort of real politique day was concerned they had to believe result in general had to believe starlings were vulne- that he was going to get to respect the integrity and independence another eastern European countries but unfortunately Adelson those deals went shot which net new Mexico's yeah false assurances by S- talented the free elections would be held in eastern Europe but I mean you bit hot on Churchill because many historians would decide that the dying FDI he essentially stitched Churchill up I didn't believe that case I've been I've found myself we H mccown superbowl cabinet Churchill held on return from Yalta in which very much that he thought he could business was done in the deeper deep stalling the only alternative to trust on of course he was for that much thin walls and it's very other fueled fairness of course because in a million Russian soldiers variant at the time he was also at Folsom Missouri in March Ninety six When you made the Great Iron Kerr in speech the first major Western politician to warn against started was doing in eastern Europe

"A spy job with really silly and so yeah i had a meeting recently <hes> for the first time ever <hes> i went to meet movie company and at the front door at reception exception. They made me sign an n._d._a. Before he walked past reception yeah common what i've never seen that before i've been to you. Don't get that at amblin rambling. You don't get that at abrahams disney divisions. They make you sign away your life before you can even walk in the building. This is my first experience with that that and it was lebron. James's company weird thing yeah. Wow okay so you're used to that. Okay i mean marvel. You have to sign in lucasfilm. You have to sign in here. You have to sign it and it's just because the projects are just up on the wall and so how did you first get hooked pixar. <hes> let me think i mean i <hes> i'd written a <hes> a <hes>. I've i've worked for pretty much. Every the division of disney <hes> except for disney animation and pixar was really the only one that was left so i i felt like they were just like let's complete her loose by the way not how it works that they're trying to create an even playing field like that yeah yeah no. It was just strange because i just got like a a small job for disney on live ac live action <hes> which i think kind of got my foot in the door and all that project didn't move forward. I like that built up goodwill so then they referred me for the marvel job and then the marble job referred me for the pixar job which referred me <hes> to some stuff that i've done it lucasfilm lucasfilm as well so i think it's just building those relationships and you know if people like to work with you do good work. It just leads to more work fortunately <music>. I'm like knock on wood. That's how it should work and how often does not work but that's a that's really great yeah and i i. I'm i feel very very very lucky. I mean i'm sure my career go dancing at some point because that's just the nature of things but i'm on like oh. I'm employed. Thank goodness but i mean yeah. The nice thing is that you know a lot of times with with independent film or with you know even it especially almost with <hes> with big studio films they go through. You know what five five six seven writers writers keep getting fired and hired back on and so forth but you know it sounds like working at some of these companies where you're just you're so much more and mashed ashed. You're on the campus. You're out of l._a. And san francisco it just feels. I don't know it feels like m- more like a normal job than the than the usual treachery the hollywood it. This is the first time i ever felt like i have a normal job and it took me a little while to be okay with that because i was just like wait. I have to be somewhere added time. I'm going to have to put on makeup. Oh jeez do like the end do you. Can you imagine going back to a world where you're you're just sitting in your underpants in your living room writing spec scripts yeah i can i think because that's essentially like my basic nature. Ah that's your zone. I mean yeah i think i think all of us writers like all have i mean well. We can be extroverted hearted and very friendly like there's an introvert. That's just like i just wanna hide and really pretend completely completely. Well okay so how did <hes> and how did you first start working for any of these companies and my right that you had a black oh script that was sort of your first big thing and you know made a lot of waves and got you oughta meetings. Yeah i mean that was the person that attention but of course before that blacklist script there were dozens of scripts that were just in a drawer and <hes> i well look should never ever be taken out of that drawer. You know and i think i finally just <hes> i was. I was actually about to quit the business just because i was getting getting so frustrated with all the nose and i was like what am i doing with my life. You know and i think that frustration became the script. I wrote nineteen sixty-nine a space odyssey and i think i was just like i'm not. I don't care if it's commercial. I don't care if anybody likes it. I'm sick of all of this like. I'm just going to do something. I like so i <hes> i'm a huge sinophile so i was like oh stanley kubrick. You know i love conspiracies. I you don't necessarily believe in all of them because they don't think people are that together <hes> but but i love conspiracies and i love space and science i just kinda took all oh that's passions and was like wrote about that you know in my scrupulous about stanley kubrick faking the moon landing <hes> and alternate history yeah. It's an alternate history and it's told from the point of view of a p a woman who <hes> p._r. At nasa who is really trying to like prove herself and make away and in a complete man's world of space exploration <hes> so that ended up being an i think a lot of my frustration like went into her characters of of why do they keep telling me no and and then that ended up just striking a nerve and i was i was surprised because i i just expected to just like write that get it on my system and then just be like hey you know it didn't work like i'll always have to write for me. You know i may not be able to do this is living. I'll just have to do it as a hobby and then that hit and then i've been working ever since then so <hes> that's awesome so first. The question is when you're thinking about quitting the business. What would what would you do inside <hes>. I didn't really have an answer which i i think is is probably a good thing. I was just like oh like maybe i can move back in with my parents and maybe i'll teach. I don't think i seriously made a plan b <hes> because i didn't really envisioned myself being anything else and i think that to do this crazy crazy business. You have to be incapable of doing anything else. If you can do anything else go do that do that because this is this is not i mean i love what i do and i feel so lucky to do what i do but i mean you have to be a bit of a masochist your thous one percent right because it's it's doesn't always work on you know. It's not like talent always rises. It's yeah the people who should be rewarded. Are everything takes way longer than you want it to. It's up. It's a really tough business a friend of mine <hes> jesse stern says that it's a war of attrition it is yeah and the people who stick around and have that requisite talented the ones who make it yeah and i would say that yeah i just i just thought for a while l. and finally someone noticed when i was about to cash it in like how close were you to cashing in. I literally was like if i was like if nobody responds bonds to this <hes> in some manner i mean i wasn't like oh. It has to sell. It has anything but i'm like if i can't even get like a meeting off of this then i we need to seriously reevaluate and then how'd you feel when it got onto the blacklist. How'd you find out that it was on the blacklist <hes> <hes> they they call you like you find out like a couple of days before it announces that's going to be on that and i found out from my manager 'cause they called him to get like all my my my representation filo and the log line and all of that and then he was like he's like so the black book called winning all this. I think you're on the blacklist awesome. Tom and i was like really. Have you been with the same agency yeah i have. I mean they all signed on with me. Before i got on the blacklist they read the script and they're into it and so i feel like if they were with me when i had nothing like they're. They're pretty good wreck yeah but that's also you know that's a lot about you that you're staying loyal to them and hopefully they're still doing a good job. I mean yeah. I and it's funny me because i feel like i mean most writers just gripe about their reps and is like mine have always thought and worked really hard for me and so i'm <hes> <hes> i. I think that i think it's important that when you're picking a wrap your not just like grateful for anything that comes your way that you actually like. I have to have have a working relationship with these people and are these people that you know. I want to have a working relationship with talk to on a daily basis you know like would would i invite them over for dinner. I think those are all like really strong considerations. You have to have when picking your representation no good point <hes> it also will prevent and resentment down the line if you feel like they haven't done as much as you want them to and you're still giving them ten percents and if you actually like the people and you know if you're fond of them personally than i think they'd probably lessons oh completely and you always have to have an open dialogue. You know i mean if you feel like something's not working. Thank you just gotta be like hey like. I'm like this isn't working like how do we figure this out and you know and if they're not willing to have that conversation and come to a solution then you know that's the sign like oh. Maybe we need to break up and you said <hes> you wrote the script about ceiling kubrick because you were a big sinophile. What are what were the important movies to growing up. <hes> i grew up just watching and a lot of old movies on cable television <hes> <hes> so i would have to say like the big influencers for me or i loved the third man orson welles right yeah. I just think get has one of the best character deductions ever with harry line. <hes> i really love <hes> casting. The sundance. Kid is a huge. I i think like william goldman was like the first screenwriter that actually really became aware of so many people have that same story and and i was just like oh like he just he does something that's so hard where he perfectly combines drama and pathos with humor yeah and <hes> it's it's the secret combo that that very few people can really hit but when you hit that note i think that's when you get real the old yeah no could not agree more and so you know actually asked you <hes> if there was a scene from someone else's work that you wanted to play and talk about from a craft perspective <hes> you picked a clip from butch cassidy the sundance kid by william goldman robert redford as the sundance kid and paul newman is butch cassidy the city they are late nineteenth century outlaws basically running from the sheriff and his group has posse um and they find themselves on the edge of the cliff on the edge of a cliff in the scene that we're about to play and below them is running water. You're going to hear the rushing water <hes> <hes> throughout the clip and so they're completely cornered in there <hes> trying to figure out what to do so let's play the clip fight.
