One of several competing to offer people an alternative to dying in the natural way in dealing with whatever does or doesn't come next one of the many brilliant concepts in this new upload show. Is that series creator? Greg Daniels envisions his imaginary world as a place where this transition from bio to upload as they call it is a predominantly financial transaction. The more you can afford the better your computerized afterlife and Nathan. Because he's girlfriend's family literally owns. The place gets to live with the one percenters whether he wants to or not here. He is waking up for the first time to his new reality guided by a computer tech back in the real world.

But upload this new comedy without a laugh track does more than just create inventive new worlds. Like the good place. It's full of thoughtful questions and challenging ideas about the meaning of life itself and of Death Itself Upload also holds up to comparisons with episodes of Black Mirror covering the worlds within worlds of avatars and computerized identity and to similar themes in Westworld and the movie her and very quickly upload reveals himself to have even more layers. It's a love story with Nathan Nora extremely attracted to one another but fighting seemingly insurmountable obstacles and before long Nathan begins to suspect that the freak accident that killed him was no accident at all that turns this Sitcom into a mystery series to as Nathan and others set out to solve a murder.

Two thousand overdose deaths last year. A rate of nearly two hundred per day. Our guest Beth Macy takes ground level. Look at the crisis in a new book focusing on central Appalachia which she calls the birthplace of the modern opioid epidemic. Maisy has spent three decades reporting on the region focusing on social and economic trends and how they affect ordinary people. Her book is an intimate look at cops, judges drug dealers, young heroine users and their long-suffering parents, doctors and health activists struggling to fight the epidemic and executives of a pharmaceutical company that aggressively marketed opioids. Many users became addicted to drugs such as Oxycontin when they were. Prescribed for pain after minor surgery or other treatment, and then moved to heroin when it became harder to get more pills. Beth. Macy's previous books include factory men and true vine fresh Air's. Dave Davies spoke to her about her new book, dope sick dealers doctors and the drug company that addicted America will Beth Macy. Welcome back to fresh air. You begin the book with a visit to a prison inmate named Ronnie Jones, and you spent a long time trying to arrange this visit. Why were you so interested in talking to him? I had been asked by mother in Strasburg, Virginia, which is in the northern Shenandoah valley full of little Adila small farm towns, civil war monuments. And this mother I met me at her son's great. His name is Jessie ball Strich, and he had been the high school football star in the town. She had his grave situated right next to the high school. The cemetery was right next door and she had. His grave on the edge so she could visit him and overlook the football field where he had once been able to move the audience to roars simply by pumping his fists, and he had died of a heroin overdose, and she wanted me to find out why was her beautiful burly son who never missed a day of work? Why did he end up dead on somebody else's bathroom floor? So I just started pulling the strings as we do in journalism. And I found out that he was one of the ways that he became further in meshed in his addiction was that a twice convicted drug dealer head landed in this region a year earlier and had said about according to the prosecutors, turning a handful of heroin users into hundreds almost overnight. But of course it was more complicated than that. So she said, I want you to. Find out why so I can understand because I don't understand. I thought it was just pills. Now this was a stable middle class community and Ronnie Jones. This dealer. I mean, it seems as you describe it kind of just took this place by storm and havoc followed what was distinct about his business model. His way of distributing the drug Ronnie had landed in Woodstock, Virginia, near Strasbourg. He was serving the final part of a sentence for an earlier drug related charge, and it was a reentry program designed to help felons get job skills. And when he ended that job, he tried to as he told me, go legit in town. He tried to set up a business in computer repair, and he said, nobody would rent space to him. Nobody would hire him. He ended up losing the chicken plant job when he got sick and he remembered he had been in the break room of the chicken plant, and he had previously had charges on dealing crack and marijuana, and somebody pointed out that everybody was already hooked. On pills here. And they said, if you really wanna make money, you're not going to go back to dealing marijuana and crack. You need to bring heroin in there were prescription

Hey, guys here and on the latest episode of how I built this, how Stewart Butterfield failed in two companies pivoted and then built to amazing new companies flicker and slack check out how I built this wherever you listen to podcasts, we're speaking with journalists, Michael Scott Moore who was working on a story about Somali pirates in two thousand twelve when he was seized and held hostage for two and a half years. You've actually were taking back off of the ship and resumed your life of being moved from one house to another. In this went on for a very, very long time with intermittent phone calls to your mother negotiations. You know, people in prison sometimes adjust to life there. They make a life, not not the one they would have chosen and I'm wondering how you adapt it to this. I mean, surely you didn't come to think of this as home, but did it get normal in some way. How did you, how did you maintain your your mental state slowly at settled in after about a month or so that I was going to be there for a long time. And once I realized I was in the house where I wasn't gonna move for awhile, I asked for yoga, mat. I asked for Matt where I could do yoga, and I tried to do it out of eyesight of the pirates. 'cause I figured it would just sort of baffle them or make them laugh, and that's exactly what it did, but they, you know, they never had me out of their sight. So first time I did yoga, all their heads sort of looked in through the doorway and they started to laugh, but then they started to do yoga with me. Some of them were aware of not getting much exercise either in these prison houses. So they would come in with sort of cardboard flats, but broken down boxes, right, to stand on on the filthy floor. And they had these makeshift yoga mats and started to the impostors. So you had your own class? I have my own class. Yeah. After a while, I started to correct their postures. Did that create abundance will sure. I, I mean, with the guards who were inclined to be friendly to me already, some of those were guards that knew me from the ship or from before they became almost friends. You know, the other guards really wouldn't. You know, didn't seem to care about me at all and didn't even wanna hear a word of Somali from me. But with those guards that could build up a a report with a friendly ones, and we could sort of mix are Molly in English and have conversations. You're a writer, it, it's a longtime habit and a metal refuge. And I gather sometimes you head notebook. Sometimes you wrote things that were confiscated and lost. But when you could ride, was it helpful? What did you write about? Oh, it was incredibly helpful. And of course, the first few times I had notebooks, I, I think I had my notes confiscated twice while I was a hostage. And those first couple of times, of course, I was writing about what was happening. And that was probably a mistake. So the the bosses were very curious about what I was writing. And sometimes I even quoted one of the guards, you know, naming the boss or something like that. And I, I got the impression that some of the guards might have been punished for some of the things I'd written. So the third time I got my hands on a notebook which was very late. So I once I was brought back onto land, I, I went very long time with no notes, no pen or paper. And that was horrible. That was awful. Once I got my hands on pen and paper again, I started to write recipes and I started to draft a novel. So I wrote about things that were not going on, and that actually helped me hang onto the notebooks recipes recipes. I

"Limitations apply. This is fresh air last Thursday, the national memorial for peace and Justice opened in Montgomery, Alabama, honoring the victims of American lynchings fresh air commentator, Matt Johnson has this story of his own family's brush with the dark legacy of lynching. When I was a kid, my mom told me a story about her grandfather that he got in trouble with some white men down south and escaped lynching by running to Chicago, that he chose his new last name Jones because it was the most common name in the phone book that for years, he would sit in his chair facing the door shock gun on his lap waiting for them to come for is to dream about this image. Nightmares really thing is I never knew much more about the story than that until last month. When I found out the secret was literally in my blood the whole time. See, I took one of those DNA tests awhile back and the company connected me to a bunch of people listed as cousins now more. Most of these were just Randolph. I mean, we're all cousins if you go back enough, but one woman reached out to me Donna because it turned out not only did we have genetic ties together, but also several of her family members and my family members reported DNA matches. But we couldn't figure out why that was two years ago and then a month back. She contacted me again, Donna figured it out from the historical record. She found this is the best I can put the story together now. In nineteen. Oh four, my family, black farmers and aching county, South Carolina bought a mule at this time in place, a mule was more than just an animal. It was a means to a livelihood. The problem was the guy who ran the country store claim. The mule was actually his said it was sold illegally by someone leasing it and he wanted back. But my cousin said that was between him and the leasers he'd already paid his money. So he told the merchant, no, and they were black and poor, and he was white and wealthy and it was nineteen four in the south. So it didn't end well. The merchant and his hired hands showed up at my ancestors home on Christmas Eve pass, eleven at night. They illegally came in the house, pulled a gun on my cousin bound his wrists behind his back. There were planning on pulling him out in the dark to deliver what they considered Justice was likely meant hanging him until his neck snap. All this or MU. But the thing is that in check the rest of the house, they didn't realize my grandpa was in a room just beyond with the shotgun aimed right at them. He was eleven years old. When he fired. He hit the merchant. I in the shoulder and then in the gut shot in shock, the guy walked around the room before finally, collapsing dying soon after. My great grandfather got away partly because the resulting Lynch mob wasted time chasing false leads, partly because his older brother whisked him away to Chicago, where the great migration of northbound southern blacks covered their tracks for them. And that's what makes this story. So rare because between eighteen seventy seven to nineteen fifty over four thousand black people didn't escape. Instead they were publicly murdered, supposedly for crimes, but always to reinforce the social order that was white supremacy. The horror of lynchings always been a part of my ancestry memory. I'd imagine that's true for majority of African Americans, I wrote a graphic novel about lynching, so it's not a new subject to me, but knowing the real story of my own family's brush with lynching, it made a real reading the newspaper clippings, seeing the pictures, feeling the utter vulnerability of black life and tin. Roof sacks the darkness of the fields and the hostile world beyond them, knowing how much has changed since then. Knowing how much hasn't. I get now why? My great grandfather sat at the door with a shotgun. It wasn't about defense. It was about PTSD. I was on the road when I found out the whole story. So I called my daughter to break the news knowing she probably wouldn't care because for her at sixteen it's beyond. Imagination us trying to get her to understand the enormity and figured I was failing. But then she says, wait, dad, if they lynched your great grandfather, you wouldn't be here. No baby. I wouldn't be here. And either. Would you or your brother or your sister or grandmother, or aunt or cousins? None of us would be here. When I hung up the phone. Here's the part that hit me over four thousand people, murdered erased, family trees pulled at their roots. So tell me this America how many other people aren't here. Matt Johnson is the author of the novels loving day and Pimm. A new edition of his graphic novel. Incognito is out this year, the national memorial for peace and Justice. Honoring the victims of lynchings opened last week in Montgomery, Alabama, coming up, David Elstein reviews the new film Tully, this is fresh air. I'm Scott detro-. There is so much political news to follow these days, but you don't have to keep up with all of it. You just have to keep up with us on the NPR politics podcast. You can find us on the NPR one app or wherever you get your podcasts director, Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody, I collaborated on the teen pregnancy, comedy, Juno, and then went on to make young adult starring Charlie's Theran. The three director writer and star reunite for Tully in which they're on, plays an exhausted mom who hires a night nanny played by MacKenzie Davis to help out with the baby film critic, David Edelstein, has this review the intimate drama, telly center. On postpartum depression, a clinical term that doesn't begin to capture the alien nation that the movie's main character feels after giving birth to her. Third child Shirley's thera plays the mother Marlo a first name I've never heard of for a woman outside Marlo Thomas who in the sixty sitcom, that girl was the archetypal effervescent single gal. I wonder if that's who Diablo Cody. The screenwriter was thinking of cody's Marlow was once that girl, but is now Wade out figuratively and literally since therein gained fifty pounds for the part and vividly Vokes. The helplessness and self disgust of someone who no longer feels at home in her body. When the baby girl arrives more low already has a daughter as well as a son with an unspecified neurological issue who's on the brink of getting kicked out of elementary school for disruptive behavior. Her. Husband played by Ron Livingston is a non presence even when he isn't traveling for his floundering startup. He doesn't seem to regard childcare as his responsibility. The title character enters twenty or so minutes into the film. Tully is nightmares. A woman hired by more lows, rich concerned brother to arrive after dark, sit beside the baby and when required bring the infant to her sleeping. Mother's breast Marlow expect someone older, but Tully played by MacKenzie. Davis is a twenty six year old free spirit with uncanny insight into more lows, divided self telly shows great sympathy, but more lows. Feelings are all mixed up. Is she being seduced? Mucked telly gets in so close. It's a little creepy. He seemed like a great mom. Great moms organized class parties and casino night. They bake cupcakes look like minions. All this things. I'm just tired to do, even getting dressed, feels exhausting. I have my closet and I just think I just do this downside living on a planet with a short solar day. Although jubilees even shorter. Like a book of fun facts, popular fourth graders Diablo Cody has never written a relationship between two people as tent, allies, ING as the one between Marlow and Tully, their encounters turn. What might have been glib, sour comedy into something strange and mythic in which Marlowe dreams of mermaids sit side by side with the most mundane demands of childcare, glib and sour is how I describe cody's previous collaborations with director, Jason Reitman, Juno, which I knew would be a hit even as I cringed at self-conscious. One liners and young adult starring Theran as a selfish woman on a visit to her tacky hometown right men and Cody seemed to enjoy scoring points off their characters and the first part of Tully centers on other people's in sensitivity towards the desperately unhappy more low. There's the woman at a coffee shop who. Disapproves of the still pregnant Marlow ordering a d-calif because it still has trace amounts of caffeine. There's more lows, rich brothers, smug wife, who points out that the chicken fingers more low Saad is eating have growth hormones, which is not just rude but deeply unfeeling since it's all more low can do to get the kid to eat anything, but the cheap shots fall by the wayside went tally appears and the movie contracts and deepens the Kenzi Davis is magnetic. She changes the movies, rhythms for the stranger, and she and Charlie there and make beautiful mysterious music together. Watch Marlow flinch in response to tallies prying questions about her past active sex life and present nod existent one about unfulfilled him bishops versus smothering. Realities. Cody seems to be writing from her unconscious. I shivered when Tully eases Marlow to sleep. Saying of the infant girl, she'll grow a little overnight. So will we, we're suddenly prepared for more lows. Desperate attempt to keep up with Tully in the final act when she and the young woman roar off towards lower Manhattan to an underworld of drinking and drugs and thrash metal, that's both exhilarating and scary the final scenes of telly or route shocking insane. And at the same time, warm and reassuring some essential primal drama has been enacted and now everyone on screen and off can get a good night's sleep.
