"What's up everybody this zach. I'm here justin justin. What's up so we are here with another breach of the week. And this is a doozy. This is So we're looking into iser and a data breach that they had due to unsecured cloud storage which hits on a whole bunch of the things we've talked about in the past one being and that really important data that you do not wanna get released because that creates all sorts of not just like the general like. Oh this sucks that there is a release but you've got like regulatory issues. The deal with generally frowned upon. If you yes. I mean the health information general is just not you know. You don't want anyone known about those like weird things you have wrong with you and so you've got some hip but more. Interestingly was also a failure like it looks like they were trying to do a good job so they have cloud data. Which we've said is a good way to sort of segment data off your system and protect it. Everybody's always get good intentions. But the breach was caused by unsecured cloud storage and they. It's it was found basically to be a miskin figured cloud storage system or they just set up their google cloud. Which i guess. I don't know when i think of google cloud i. It seems like that's something that i wouldn't expect a company like pfizer to do like i would sort of think that they've got their own system. And that's visors a multinational and obviously they're right now. They're probably making ungodly amounts many. Because i think they're one of the candidates that's trying to make the this is very reminiscent to a bank capital one. Yes so same. Same thing out while they were they were amazon. Yes cloud so i guess similar i hate capital i should probably say. Hey capital one wrong word. I really visually. I've had a few credit cards in my time. Capital was one of the worst ones. That i've that i had i. I couldn't get out of the card. I tried to pay it off in that. I wanted to shut it down. They like wh- like i had to go through so many layers to actually shut the car down. It's like they got me. He was one of those things where i was at college. Groundhog day. Pretty much like is it done like. Oh no you need to talk to this person but it was in college in. You know how that goes you like offered. Here's a credit card to go. Whatever you want about a really crappy laptop with it which was even more disappointing laptop stunk. It no god. Now that thing. I think i sold that to some poor doodoo about computers than i did or yeah yeah i feel bad but i was young johnny better so in this case though like so it sounds like maybe this has a little bit to do with what we and i don't know when this is gonna come out so we've either talked about it or we'll talk about it like privilege access. Which one of our partners. Cyber ark deals worth But the sounds like it might have been. It was a misconception geared cloud that that opened up access so i'm guessing it means they probably there was there was roles that maybe were created that provided someone an avenue in that should never or a path was created on accident. Or it's not a not a ton of information about the care that i can see but it looks like ms configuration at the storage level. It sounds like they caught it. Maybe during an audit or something that it was like they didn't know about it like wasn't captured as it was happening or there wasn't like maybe the indicators has sort of traveling through the system it sounds like maybe they were like. Oh yeah that looks like someone maybe got into this. That shouldn't have and downloaded the data. that shouldn't have. Yeah which is which is usually happen. Which could even be. I mean i guess. Here's a question so this isn't this isn't the first breach for pfizer. They've had a long history of Let stuff go okay. So that's true. I mean you know there's companies feel very evil. Even though they do really good things. I think it's just because there's so much money involved. That just feels like one of those very evil things so just out of curiosity if this was so. Let's say this was caught during an audit for instance. So this it doesn't necessarily mean that there was ill intent right so it could have been like an admin who maybe was or someone you know got fired in on their way out. They're like oh. I need to back these up before i leave. And they're like oh. That was not supposed to have been done that way. That could technically be considered a breach because it sort of approach. I'm guessing in this case. They wouldn't have announced that if the data had gone into somewhere where it could be exposed by right but it doesn't always mean that you know necessarily that. There's ill-intent right. It could have been done through. An accident and exposure occurred
2021 Super Bowl Ad Review
"Like there's two ads. I've really want to get everyone starts on I think they're the most polarizing we'll certainly talk about our picks for the best. Although i will say this year it was not exactly like a plus plus it was like you know pretty good lead like the the best ones were all pretty good And none of them were were tremendous home runs But that's the two that were kind of late editions. we already talked about only in passing But then also the two minute. Gps dot with bruce springsteen. Let's start with that nicole. I think we all know what what they were. Attempting you know like cheap wanted this rousing halftime in america type ram farmer. Type spot fill. It really fell flat. I actually kinda surprised that they released that one early because it was a two minute long spot. I thought at least it would be a two minute surprise So that was a little shocking to me. But yeah then when i saw it i was like oh man two minutes okay. Let's get cozy. Let's see what this is going to be like. Am i going to be laughing like last year. Because last year was such a pleasant like fun. Add to watch and this one. I just kinda felt like. Oh they're going like the safe route they're going like the middle of the road route. They're going to do the call for unity and also like to me. I as a consumer from the consumer perspective. I didn't love that. Because i feel like if i want to see a brand lean into its purpose i wanna see them. Take a side not do the middle of the road thing. I know that that's where a lot of Like i guess politics wise lot of people doing calls for unity but it still felt like a little too early for the brands to start doing the calls for unity. Like i'm still waiting for purpose from brands rather than middle of the road right now. I guess my question would be in. Jameson a. You and i talked about this many times. But i can't think of a brand that has ever succeeded by being like can't we all. Can we just come together. They learn anything from gap putting up that tweet that it was like a hoodie that had like read into on it and it's like a collie unity shoot rented after election day. Jeep is like we're going to spend twenty million dollars gap bruce springsteen in here and do the same exact thing in front of a hundred million and hope it works. I mean it was a touching message that i felt ill timed and i saw one tweet from at its kenya summit. A perfectly like what they displayed in that ad fundamentally goes against lead. Diversity inclusion is in america right now. And i think right just did didn't didn't showcase what america is today showcase a unity of one america used today. And you know what. I would have actually appreciated if they just re-run last year's groundhog day ad and donated that money to a cause that actually supports you know unifying missions I think that would have been funny and understandable and Yeah that that really fell flat a lot of the ads this year. Celebrities team to kind of try to force things like the cuts. The storylines is just we. I felt like the in this kind of i guess my last real thought on jeep is just the it's the kind of add that cmo's and and if i'm just being honest here because it's late i'm tired League basically wealthy white folks and and and just affluent people in general kind of ivory tower folks are gonna be like what a brave message like wouldn't important message. I'm so glad they used their storytelling to do this. You know what i mean. And and that's but to everyone else on the ground like who who has survived this past four years and knows how much farther we still have to go. It's just like oh there's a small church in kansas. That's that leaves their doors open. Okay cool then. Never mind like we're all good and you know it's just anyway. That's that's my. But i i also wanna make sure we say plenty of time talking about oatley because who wants to start us off one. No we haven't gotten to talk realism curious. I loved story. edited the story By katie lindstrom and No they wanted to go with something else in there. Trying to come up with With all these eight years and ended up like the ceo was kind of forced into the spot because he was like well. I guess i have a better idea. And he brought back an idea that he had and it was just him trying to come up with a jingle and From i saw you know it. It definitely caused a stir In terms of using a simple melody and a simple backdrop and like a shaky table with you know that lovely oatmeal gone. They're really worried about that class. Like nobody take this down from production. Okay we're going to go with it. But i thought it was so so on brand you know it. It was not expected and A little endearing. And you know i am. I am a consumer of that brand. And you know they. They also laid that message with you. Know the mission of. Let's also be sustainable and talk about. Let's let's take a quick pause to listen to the song for anyone who might have missed it in all of its glory It reminds me of like kind of like nineties weirdo alternative Kind of punk music. I don't know there's this weird vein of like intentionally bad dead dead milkman. style was. let's give it a listen made for you. Who moves like male but made for you. Well no no no no bill nicole. What did you think of the okay. So here's the thing. I actually when i was first watching it. I thought to myself like oh. That's actually kind of cute. I don't hate this. And then everyone i was in the room with just got quiet and they all just started like laughing at the same time. They're like oh. This is terrible terrible. We hate this. We all hate this. So i actually think that i'm one of the few. Maybe i'm i'm the right consumer here or something. I like the brand also personally but yeah. I didn't hate it right away. I get the cornyn est. And i get that like i don't know maybe maybe now that i've listened to not while i'm also editing and distracted by other things i get it but i listen. I was kind of like oh cute. Okay i have to say. Maybe one of my favorite advertising tweets of all time. And i won't name him because he's a great dude and Good on him for his transparency but so someone tweeted that oatley dropped the ball and then a few minutes later shared his own. Tweeden's i've been informed that my agency created the and and so it's actually fantastic
Two tools to move your organization forward
"And techniques and strategies when working with our clients our goal is to give the executives. The managers leaders the leadership teams. We work with real tools that they can use every day. We don't want to just come in and say here do this. Or here's what you should do and then leave that's done. That does not create forward motion rather we love educating our clients with tools. The day could turn around right that in there and use with their colleagues their down lines their departments their teams across teams. We want the tools to be that effective and that powerful and sometimes those tools are really simple. There are two tools in particular that we use pretty much all the time. And what's interesting is we had a client point out. That one tool is about what happened past tense and what will happen in the future. You may be surprised to hear that one of the tools we talk about is to discuss to even dissect something that might have happened in the past if we are all about forward motion. Why in the world would we look backward if we always want to move forward. Well sometimes you have to look back at where you've been to one understand where you are and to better design where you're going. That tool is something. We call the groundhog day exercise. If you are familiar with the movie. Starring bill murray. He's in this town. Pucks tani pennsylvania to celebrate groundhog day. Something happens which is never explained which i find fascinating in which he keeps living the same day over and over and over and the majority of the film is about what he does differently on all these days and then how. That all culminates at the end. The film is probably at least thirty years old but they still won't do a spoiler alert anyway in watching that film you realize he must have lived that same day at least a thousand or more times maybe two thousand and three thousand so every day. He has to ask himself what worked what didn't work. And what would. I do differently if i had to do it all over again. He doesn't actually ask himself those questions. It's just obvious by what happens in the movie. He does something different at what we see. Those are the scenes that we see. He does something different. He has to analyze how that worked. Apply this to your organization. It could be anything from a meeting. That didn't go well to a process that didn't perform expected to holes and gaps in systems showing up. So you look at that situation and ask yourself what worked and there's almost always something that works. Well there's almost always something is that that's the piece that you would keep if you had to do over. Or maybe there are several pieces. He would keep if you had to do it over. And then there's of course though will what didn't work and it's figuring out the problem not to focus on the problem not to assign blame but to understand the problem so then the next question what would we do. Differently moves toward solution. And of course you know what i'm going to say. It's part of that forward motion and being very solution oriented. So that's the looking back. The next tool that we use quite often is the palm tool purpose outcome method. I've talked about this before. But i'll give you a very quick example. At the beginning of any thing it could be an email a meeting a conversation with your spouse and initiative a project a meeting with the board of directors to figure out strategy and tactics objectives. You figure out. What is the purpose now. Most of the time what we do. Is we figure out the purpose. We need to have this meeting to figure out the strategic objectives for next quarter. And then you just rush right into those actions. We should do this and this and this and this. What usually happens because we tend to be action oriented. Those are the things we can cross off the list. Those are the things we can put on the memo to send out to the rest of the organization. These are the things were going to do. Let's get moving forward motion right however what usually happens when we jump from purpose straight into action or methods is that we get to the end and we are surprised by the outcome and not always pleasantly surprised. Because what happens is we realize we didn't defined the outcome well enough and so the actions that we took the methods we employed goddess to the place that we didn't necessarily want to be. And that's if we're really self-aware realizing oh we did not define the outcome to begin with sometimes what happens is there's a lot of blame will. Why did you do it this way or this isn't what we wanted or this didn't get us to the place that we said we wanted to be or i didn't want this. And there's that cycle of blame instead right after you have determined the purpose focus on the desired outcome. What we have found in using this tool ourselves personally in our own organization. The shoulder group is that sometimes. That's a longer conversation than you might think because it should be easy right now. Here's what we're trying to achieve. Well once it gets down to it. They're may be nuances that if not addressed will turn into disappointments and even perhaps resentments at the end. So i was talking about this tool to a colleague and gave him an example of purpose outcome method and he said oh that makes perfect sense. It's just like when. I came home the other day and my wife said let's go for a walk and i said flip flops or tennis and other words. Was this a casual walk. Where he could just stay in his foot slops or was it going to be a little bit more of a serious walk where he needed to put on more substantial footwear. He was asking about the desired outcome. The purpose was a walk. What's the desired outcome. Is it for exercise. Get the heart rate up. Get somewhere fast or is it just to take a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood. What do you want to get out of it. Whatever it is the meeting the conversation the email and then your methods are determined the flip flops or the teddy's based on the desired
What's the latest on Deshaun Watson situation with Houston Texans?
"Swaggie. Do we have six. More weeks of a standoff between watson and the texans listen gina texas keep. They don't want to acknowledge that today. I'm growled say this going to be six weeks. They don't want to acknowledge the keep telling them is going to design this groundhog for the people that in the back secondly look he goes on behind if they keep playing games but they don't won't acknowledge it. Winter is here. Houston texans the ground. Winter is ear. You better prepare yourself for the spring winter of his discontent and a nice job by ryan stale off. I'm not really a groundhog. I'm not sure where we're find groundhog. Full-body emojis i liked it. So let's come to you. What is let's get some. What is the latest on shawn watson. Here it's been quiet for the last twelve hours. It makes me nervous. Houston houston doesn't want to trade him right. I mean the idea. Is that the the. Sean doesn't want to be there anymore. And he's made that clear and and that's where we are but houston not telling people when they call. Oh yeah this'll be the price they're telling people we don't want to trade him. Now the question becomes will they be forced to trade him and the way that he would force them to do that is to show them and prove to them that he's willing to sit out not just training camp but actual games they can certainly find him for missing training camp days and obviously for actual games but until they're convinced he doesn't he won't play for them then they're not inclined to move off of their position so it could be a while i i agree. I think we're looking at least six more weeks of this particular winter. Punxsutawney phil is not looking kindly upon houston right now. Jeff saturday what do you think of all this. We see the beginning of the quarterback carousel with the big trade over the weekend. How does that inform. What you think will happen with watson what i saw. What happened with jared goff in matthew stafford thought what can happen for watson like are you going to trade away. Ten players some. How could you quantify how important and valuable. This guy is mean you talking about. Tunsil tackle got multiple pigs. Jamal adams multiple right. You're talking about khalil mack. There's so much involved in this trade type scenario for a player of his caliber. It's just mind boggling to me. I don't even understand how you could put it in one offer to trade. If you're the texans of course you're not feeling any calls. I would turn my phone. I don't want anybody calling me to even tip me because you're committing professional suicide if he goes somewhere in wins championships. Everybody in the business is gonna look at you go. How could you do something that dumb. You have one of the premier players in the nfl in his early twenties and he has shown you what type of leader he is. Kate let bill. And i'm just telling you whatever you gotta do. You better make him happy because he can't leave. And but marcus you made it clear and sean has made it clear from everything. Everyone tells us that he has made it clear that he not coming back. He's not returning their calls. So marcus spears. How does this play out. It plays out with the show and playing for another team. Like i like jeff's ms them. I don't like the fact that he's being optimistic. Though the show watch the nada look houston has already read the savage this relationship. This is about the cell watson reconciling anymore. It's about getting out of there. And i get it. The houston takes a terrible situation because every year own initial told you about generational talent and you need to find a quarterback. And if you don't have a quarterback you can't win games but think about this for a second y'all some kind of way the houston texas alienated. The best thing that's happened to their franchise in history since ceja since ever and they figured out a way to alienate him he added man. it is beyond repair. Yup there are some soul-searching needs to be done with that for sure but in the interim they need to figure out where they're going on into their future.

Groundhog Day gone wrong: Some of the worst moments in the holiday’s history
"There's a pretty good track record of some epic ground. How groundhog day fails. yeah Some of the worst moments in history. Not only for the whistle pig itself. But for its handlers. Pretty controversial moments over the years. It was back on february. second twenty fourteen. You remember this. don't you mayor. Bill de blasio. New york flinched as the handler placed. Chuck in his arms. How much would would with chuck chuck chuck chuck would causing the groundhog to fall to the ground now. The groundhog was actually a female stand in for chuck named charlotte and sadly well passed away several days later. Oh yes but circling the wagons. You had the staten island zoo coming out and saying that it appeared unlikely that the groundhogs death was related to the fall. And that's their story and they're sticking to it now unfortunately back in two thousand sixteen. Stonewall jackson was a groundhog never made to a ceremony on he actually passed away. On the eve of the holiday jackson's death resulted in the cancellation of groundhog day. Ceremonies ending a streak of more than twenty years of predictions at the space farms. Zoo m museum in sussex new jersey and then there was chuck tyson on february. Second of two thousand fifteen. You had mayor jonathan freud. His name of wisconsin. Well let's say. He got a little unwanted attention from jimmy. The groundhog as jimmy chuck tyson. The groundhog bit. The mayor's left ear. that left a mark. Yeah apparently The mayor leaned in to hear jimmy's prediction and got a little nibble instead. Now at first the mayor said there would be an early spring that he was mistaken. I hear too well as jimmy took a chunk out of his ear. Jimmy actually as did punxsutawney phil. This morning predicted six more weeks of winter february. Second two thousand nine. Staten island chuck. Well he bit then mayor michael bloomberg the bite happened just before chuck made his prediction as the mayor reached into the groundhogs cottage. The groundhog has palatial digs and tried to coax him out with some of his favorite sa k s.'s. Can't say i can't say the word because well my little Rudy is sleeping until he hears that word and then he would allow can get very demanding. Apparently chuck's handler swertz said about bloombert's struggle with the rodent while they were trying to lure him out with corn but i guess he was having none of it and then there was twenty sixteen. You had ed the groundhog from turtle back zoo in west orange new jersey. Apparently this large and go up the overslept. And he missed the ceremony. So otis otis. The hedgehog had to fill in apparently the warm weather change to ed's hibernation pattern which caused him to oversleep this according to county officials. So happy groundhog day. Twenty twenty one to which you say. How can you tell. Yeah i hear you. Twenty twenty Groundhog day every day seemingly. So again my suggestion to you this morning. Take it or leave it Why not just flip the script a little bit. Maybe do something a little bit different today. Albeit suggestion is yeah. You want to make sure that you do it

U.S. Coronavirus Cases Are Falling
"The united states could be turning a corner in the coronavirus pandemic the rate of new covid nineteen cases and hospitalizations is starting to fall quite a bit. The new york times says the average number of new cases is about forty percent lower now than it was at a peak three weeks ago. The hope is now that the number of cases falling the death toll will follow to over the past week. The us has been averaging about three thousand deaths a day. But there's light at the end of the tunnel not just because cases and hospitalizations are down but also because vaccines are reaching more people. The pentagon is saying active duty troops can help with distribution and fema is planning to set up one hundred large vaccination sites around the country. There's a new emphasis on getting those vaccines to since new strains of the virus are becoming more common. The nation's top infectious disease expert. Dr anthony fauci told cnn. Even if you've already had cope in nineteen you're very likely to get reinfected if the new strains become dominant but he says the vaccines should help to not only protect you. Prevent new strains from
Democrats kick off process to fast-track COVID relief package
"There are now two proposals for the next covid. Nineteen relief package one from the democratic white house. One from republicans in congress and it seems lawmakers on both sides are now moving forward with their own. Plans without a lot of bipartisan support first. Let's talk about the republican plan. It's worth about six hundred. Eighteen billion dollars it includes money for covid nineteen vaccines testing treatment and medical equipment. Also more direct payments this time worth a thousand dollars for americans who make less than forty thousand a year and it also includes billions of dollars for small businesses schools and childcare. But it's not clear if this plan stands shot at passing since democrats who now hold the majority in congress say it's not enough overall. President biden wants to covid nineteen relief package three times the size of that one at one point nine trillion dollars but republicans have called his plan too costly on top of almost everything in the republican proposal. Biden also wants to see aid for state and local governments larger direct payments for more americans and a fifteen dollar an hour. Federal minimum wage just to name a few sticking points president biden met with some moderate republicans at the white house yesterday. Several of them left the meeting saying they got the impression biden was open to negotiating some elements of his plan. But it looks like some of his fellow. Democrats in congress are ready to move forward. Without their republican colleagues top dams in both the house and senate released a separate budget resolution. It basically unlocks special rules allowing biden's package to pass with a simple majority vote in the senate so that essentially means fifty one votes instead of sixty votes usually need it or another words. They can passage even if every republican votes against it. The ap says the goal is to have a relief deal approved by next month since. That's when extra unemployment assistance and other past pandemic aid

"groundhog" Discussed on Unspooled
"But how can you have a deeper life going through it. I i to me. I want to put this on the list. Because i think it's a movie vicary mattel that we talk about a lot. It's movie that. Maybe i think our list tends to fall to people who are older than us and i think this is a movie that You know we were trying to put on some movies. I think that really were important to us.

But there's no like there there as far as like a an emotional jerry. This is a movie that i feel like is like a wizard of oz like a wits ornament. I think it fits in that category of just being a great a great moral. It's over the head. It's really still funny. That works across the board. I think this is a good at that. That's what i would say and by. We haven't talked about the one person that i think needs to be. Shot the space. And that's chris elliott. Who is always amazing. And whatever it does go back watches letterman stuff. I mean we didn't talk about him here because he's kind of just a side character he's just as good kills it everything he's funny. The way puts his arm around nancy the way he stands like. He's he plays a great. I love. I love chris elliott. It can't say enough positive stuff about chris elliott but so yeah for that reason. I put this movie into space over ghostbusters. Our by that. Well we still have a whole miniseries left to do. Though that's right we do all right. So what what is next amy.

"Why do all musicals helm the same. Why do they all sound exactly the same. Give me more andrew. Lloyd webber at least. His songs sounded different. Man i will say this if you're gonna make a movie into a musical groundhog day. Works like premise wise. It's easy enough to do on stage. I i. I don't know i mean mean girls the musical. We've already gone through all these. It's it's a lot it's a lot of people want to of the year. I was gonna say that the best musical did you see that tiktok. That was all the people saying about the grocery store. No i got sick. though it's just the opposite raisin one guy on tiktok is making fun of musicals and so he's like making up a musical about being in a grocery store getting into a fight with his wife and then another person like decides to like it and she plays the part of the wife and then a person as on the part of the child is in the grocery store and then a person that's under the worker in the grocery store and it builds all the way up to like a can of soup and the ding dong crime of your social media. So i need to see this. Do i went through the whole thing. It's like one of my favorite corentin achievements like honestly that these people made this tiktok. It feels joy. No did you know that there was a gun. Hug day video game. What no It came out last year for playstation. It's called groundhog day. Like father like son and the premise is that you are bill. Murray's kid and now you're stuck but you're stuck the day before crowd hug day for some crazy video game. Here's a little clip of their trailer. What a nightmare. I guess this town of do that to you. You come for the groundhog. You stay for the existential dread and some fellas at me by the way phil connors junior. I know junior right one and original name. Thanks dad as my dad for a one of something was never enough is kind of a big deal in this town living in a shadow is it kinda tough. Then i found out he had a secret. He lived the same day over and over again. Groundhog day sounds like fun right. Well it's not see seems like now. I'm stuck in my own mood ready for the ceremony. Let's do this again. Hopefully today's today. I break the cycle but if not there's always tomorrow tomorrow's today i don't know fill you're crazy whoa vr. Game i get in on that. Allow okay on. I check that out immediately. Groundhog day are dot com. The loop okay i will. I will Wow wow i'm like i'm kind of by all the levels of what i don't like about that and what i really wanna really wanna play it and actually reading a review of it right now But anyway what were the reviews. When this comes out was it was a universally applauded. It was universally given the you're pretty good. I think a lot of people evert famously. Did the thing where they gave it. A three star review. They're like it's good. I had fun. It's fun and then it grew for them overtime. Which i think comedy just does. I think nobody knows how good a comedy is. Until like five years go by. It's the weirdest thing. I say this all the time with stuff like even popstar never stopped. And you're like oh it's really good and then you love and respect it. It happened with. Harry met sally to like. I don't know why we can't tell. The comedy is good to gear that it comes out. I think it's a lot about. I think it's a lot about just like also like familiarity or like yourself not be. I don't know it's comedies. Existing in us finding them again. You know whether it is tommy boy which i think has become such a go to act as one of the funniest movies ada. I think it's also like the part of the joy of a comedy show to other people at gruber so funny but you know it was and if so well directed and yet. It's interesting this movie. I think gets a lot of play on tv too. I think that actually helps. And they get does so the negative that i picked. It was kind of a weird. When i was a little disappointed in this review is written. It's in the washington post. It is a negative review. It categorizes itself as a negative. It's really just like mostly plot summary with no actual commentary at all. So it's my least favorite kind of review but at the end the writer says the trouble is you'll feel like you've been through too many same days yourself with at zany. Daily episodes groundhog get stuck in a non progressive repetition. It's also headed for the usual life lesson in which morals murray's moral winter must thaw and then he has this line in the view. Groundhog will never be designated a national film treasurer by the library of congress. I would say in the year. Two thousand six film was selected by the united states library of congress to be preserved in the national film registry for being culturally historically or aesthetically significant. Well that is really interesting. Wow never prediction like that. My critical friends. Yeah i mean you save you. save that. For like a wayne's brothers body switch movie. You don't say that for a bill murray harold ramos joint and that's why i think it is interesting. This film has become so beloved. Which i think it deserves it. I think it really deserves it. Like i think in two thousand nine hundred eighty three. This was a good movie and now it is considered a great movie. It is being pointed to as i think one of the best movies of the nineties it is it has been pointed to even in two thousand fourteen The hollywood reporter did a poll kind of their own little. Afi ish list where they asked Over two thousand people in the entertainment industry to rank their best movies of all time and groundhog. Day came in sixty three which is pretty high pretty high. And i feel like we are now embracing this movie and i think it's a really worthwhile movie to bring to this list. Yeah i mean he does. I guess the question is what would we. Obviously the goal of this show is to send a list of one hundred best movies to the aliens and hopefully they would understand us more and we would understand them more with this movie. You would put on that list. I really might. I mean if you if the biggest ding against this comedy which i think has a great love story for sure that it's it covers the same territory as it's a wonderful life which is one of my top ten favorite films of all time. You could do a lot worse like you could do that if that's my ding against you. It's a wonderful life is interesting though. Because it's a wonderful life is a different protagonist right. I mean yes. There's similarities there. The same thing like i live in this town. I'll never get out where to go from here but yeah but there's a different thing in the sense of like bill doesn't live in that town it's like he's not in the small town. He does have bigger aspirations. They think there's a different character. Play like i feel like you know the a character who would sack of who would cut in front of somebody else or jimmy. Stewart is a who let everybody else cut in front of him right. There's a party you know there's a part of that. I mean i understand that. I'm not debating that there aren't some similarities. I think there are some things that are even baked into the movie. That feel like that. But i feel like they are different enough that they stand on their own two feet because they think that this movies this movie is at its core talking about what are the patterns that we create for ourselves that keep us safe and not growing and i feel like that's a different thing than it's a wonderful life. Which is i kind of. Look at all the love that you have around you acknowledging where here it's like you'd have to find who you are a fine to truly are where whereas i feel like jimmy stewart is just not acknowledging what he actually has that makes sense. I know it's a very small difference. It's a jimmy. Stewart is like learning that he never got to live his. he's accepting that he never got to live his life the way he pictured you know. He hasn't been triggers life that he didn't get to have in. So it's a movie about reconciling disappointment and appreciating appreciating. The bad things that bad things happen to you and it will be okay. Yeah bill murray is coming from place. If everything's been pretty fine.

"Stay here. Let's stay here forever like rent earlier. But i mean but they're like i think that it's less about him being i also think that that's transparent for her like she's like just in love with him just because he's a good guy around like i think that she's seeing that sum total of everything and she's not seen him say everybody like she's seeing a lot of the after effects that he knows everybody in the town that he's i think it. I think their relationship lasts because they think he's changed And by the way document this last scene you know where where he does wake up and this is kind of a cool thing with herald ramos. And i think this movie feels like this has a lot like. They didn't know how to play. That last seen didn't know what it was gonna be. I remember him to me about this. Too that we they shot it in so many different ways. and And i read a little bit more about that. Because he's talked about it very publicly as well like they shot at twenty five different times and and they basically to vote with the crew. How do we play it. Do we play like this. Do we play it. Like they've had sex. We played like they wouldn't have sexy in the crew really like weighed in on how they should play. The team in the idea was they didn't have sex that they you know. They wake up in their clothes and and that was they. Were just trying to figure out what the tone needed to be for that. Last seen i love that also held ramos's that opened be what what is working. What do you all want us. And that lasting does play so well. I mean it plays so-so well it does it. Can you imagine that. In the first draft of the script script that rubin who i think is a much more cynical by maybe intellectual cerebral cynical type than anybody making this film. He wanted to end with finally. Murray is out of the loop. But she's in the loop it so now we're like in her loop and she still stuck in that day which is such a depressing ending. Annesley by by the way i mean made me think about palm springs. I'm like did someone read an article about this movie and going. Oh i'll just take these kind of discarded ideas and kind of toss men because you know one of the fun things about palm springs is like the cheese in his loop and then he gets. Then you know there's a there's this energy there that was interesting like if she was in his loop of everyday day as groundhog day would be a very back to the future to moment kids. They're assholes you know it's a very very you know it's like well. What does that become a but does she need to does. She need to get better. I don't know if she does. And you know But that would be yeah. That'd be of crazy thing. I mean it is clear that like all of the people involved with this. Have now re enter the loop. It feels like this movie came out. They said that year there's not going to be a sequel and not going to be equal. Maybe that was part of the ramos. Attention that they knew there was never going to be a sequel But it was pretty clear in through their whole strained relationship like remiss. Mary were only communicating through. Murray's brother you at murray's brother would just in the movie yet it would do just say like no two things he just pass on things and not respond to stay. But when you watch some of the behind the scenes footage like you'll see it and they feature rats like bill. Murray is fuck in riding herald ramos. Like what are you harold. A stylist or director. Like whoa. and it's it's yeah. There's some tense moments. You're you've yup. We're communicating through notes Yeah so the area there. It's like middle school communicating through an married. Will he be in. What was the movie. I think it was I think it was the ice harvest. He was like asking. Bill murray's Will he please being the ice harvest. I'd really love to see him. Can he please check this box. Yes no maybe we'll he. In ice rbis in the brother was like no. He came back with a note and he's like well did he ask about me and he was like no. It said it so then for them to finally reconcile i mean really touching ramos dis Early in two thousand fourteen in just a couple weeks after he dies bill. Murray is Announcing what are the categories. At the oscars this is twenty thirteen oscars. He's announcing best cinematography and for guy who wouldn't talk to ramos for two decades like you. I think he took this moment to make. It's kind of a strange apology. But i'll take it well. It's interesting because i wanted before. He plays once they like. He did a first step. Which is he released. A statement when harold died and and the statement is herald ramos and i together did national lampoon show off broadway meatballs stripes caddyshack ghostbusters and groundhog day. He earned his keep on this planet. God bless him. That was it and remember being a fan of both of these guys. Huge and i was like. Oh that's a really like Like a a bummer quote like it was bill murray aspect of is a bummer and dam and then and then he's at the oscars and he's announcing the category for best cinematography in. This is what he does or are you. The brains of the operation to baby moves up for best shooter here. The nominees for achievement. In cinematography the grandmaster philippe lazare gravity emmanuel. The best game. Inside lewin davis bruno delbonnel nebraska state uncompromising prisoners rozier a deacons herald ramos for caddyshack ghostbusters groundhog. Nice moment there. And especially after. I've ragging on this in that. Oh all the categories Ideo any bill bill. Murray is still alive. Of course thank god. We're we're glad he is. And i think since they do think he comes across a little bit more like the villain in this. I want to extend to him the benediction that ramos extended to him even when they were still speaking your he said that bill is the kind of guy who would give you his kidney. If you needed it. But he wouldn't return your phone calls. You and i i buy that i know that and again in probably mixing some personal stuff and like some Written stuff i think. His daughter really covered a lot of this song. I feel comfortable saying it. Like he came to his house completely unannounced with like pastries and they liked him doughnuts and just sat on his bed when he was very very sick and had terribly debilitating to these And And they were able to connect and i feel like maybe in very bill. Murray way 'cause you can see that clip that you can't you can't hear maybe but you can see like he's emotional talking about it i. They did their things behind the private. You know the closed door right. And i feel like and in time is changed and people change and i'm glad that they actually had that you know whatever was said in those moments who knows but i feel like one of those things that i feel like. So happy for herald is because you're talking about. It's like it was something that was such a big deal to him that to have lost this friend this this lover of comedy partner. And if we didn't lose that what could we have. Gotten what would have been the other films and stuff like that. And i i just i love all of that stuff and i love these these two and and i think that goes back to what we were seeing a lot of these other episodes like sometimes a collaboration to the same idea with different tax. Bill breed a better movie. Groundhog day is is popular. The bill murray version. I don't know if garner day is good. Their version without bill murray. They so it's like this. Whatever this collaboration was made it really great. And i And i think that that's really special about that and it always makes you go like well. Maybe i should collaborate more. And i think that you know especially comedy and you can. You can leave things to be open and weirdly herald. Ramos plays a role in this movie. He also plays the announcer on the radio. Boomers brother plays a role in this movie playing outside on the radio. And they're not the same person. I don't think the doctor and the the guy radio but there are certain things that are sloppy in fun and just playful and and and. I think that there's like an energy this movie that keeps it alive like this idea that like it doesn't matter it's we're telling a good story we're trying to make a good story and and that that's they did do. They told a good story at the end of the day. Yeah i liked. I think collaboration really is so key. Even rubin himself. Gino guy that the screenwriter. Who had this idea. You know who picked groundhog's day as a holiday wind come up with something he thought would be like. It's a wonderful life. Which i think this movie feels like our modern. It's a wonderful life. Either the end is call to that. Yeah i mean it snows at the end since the end of one of her life to your back. Yeah exactly you know they need each other and it makes me wonder putting on a context. You know if bill murray thinking about this movie and what it meant in like refusing to have gone back to if he never went back to his paksitani if punxsutawney is his friendship with with raymond in their working partnership like he refused to have that same day again. I wonder if that fits into him deciding to do his one and only commercial that he said he'd ever do in his life which is for jeep which was last year. Groundhog's.

"They think so. Maybe that's what i'm right now. As i'm yeah he becomes a better man to wanna make it work. Maybe that's also you wanna move the guy he tries to say yes. I think you're right. I think what i'm realizing here is. What is it better than he knows that. That's the man he's the girl he should be with. This is. The harry met sally kind of relive relationship in a way in the sense that we're seeing them at different stages of his life. And so here's a woman that he tried like okay. He didn't like her at first. And then he's using her as an ally and then he's trying to sleep with her and now he's trying to actually realize all i actually am falling in love with like i say that a little bit better each other. Yeah do you think. Billy crystal could have done this. He'd be too cute. he'd be love me yet. Lloyd runs to the the castles which we talked about a little bit. I mean at chevy chase was another one He never new jersey's never going to have an emotional bone in his body. no steve. Martin was another one an interesting. Steve martin weatherman in la stroke talked. About but steve martin also think is a little bit too sincere john. Travolta was another actor But but but then you get into the travolta goes at that period of his life. Every girl might want to sleep a little easier phenomenon travolta which is like a weird. Yeah no accepts ponytail. Travolta no steve martin. I could buy. But steve martin even his like asshole has an element a flavor. That's a little bit. He little rich. I think you're right anyway. All right so that was all right. So you've actually made me appreciate it a little bit more. Because i do like the relationship. I just felt like that. I didn't by the introduction but looking at over twelve years.

It's not an everyday treat but when you do make it so good art. So amy are you ready to announce full it. Yeah great all right. So i think it's about time for us to get into the episode and maybe we should just see if this groundhog sees a shadow and it. Okay all right so so good to catch up on all that sort of stuff so many things going on. It made me really enjoy movies and talking about a movie that i really enjoy it. Is this one.

"Oh everybody and welcome to unspoiled. I'm amy nicholson paul. Scheer in this the show where we are endeavouring to find the hundred best films of all time. We've already gone through the afc top one hundred list. We are now working through films of the world in little mini series This miniseries that were in the middle of right now is called couple goals We have watched a few great films so far about couples but we felt that we couldn't Not acknowledge the very special holiday. That happens here. In the beginning of february amy. Happy groundhog day at happy groundhog. Day episode to you. I'm glad we're doing this. Because i think there's a beautiful couple at the center of this movie and i can't wait to talk about them and i'm glad that we are together. Babe we got this. I love it. And you know what i want to talk about two other movies that are in. This film's orbit. We're going to get into grant holiday a lot in just a couple minutes but first of all. I think that this year twenty twenty one. We have to acknowledge it. Palm springs was a big hit that came out during kovic times and revolves around a similar premise. In many ways revolves around the premise. That this film was originally based at Groundhog day was supposed to just start in the middle of phil connors being in punxsutawney. And that's something that Palm springs kind of does with andy sandberg's character. But like there's a a real interesting connection between these two films. I love them. Both i think palm springs is so well done but i felt like we just needed to mention it and probably as we get into our best films the year round the oscars. I don't know if that will be an oscar nominee but It is worth at least Shining a light of the similarities between these two films it is. It is a very very very fun movie. Is it groundhog. Day said a wedding if you haven't seen this yet and if you've ever been in a wedding. That is mildly uncomfortable. Knowing people around the corner. Like i dunno talk getting stuck in the end of chitchat and also being in palm springs. Police that i admire but find exhausting after thirty six hours. Meyer springs i would like to be a person who liked palm springs better. I'm not being stuck in palm springs. There's an added that to me. That becomes a bit of a horror movie idea and this what groundhog day kind of does as well. Which is it. It's a you can't get out like there's something. There is the son in the sand of palm springs that is as oppressive as cloudy. Day in punxsutawney groundhog day. And i feel like you need that world. You can't be having a groundhog day in new york city. There's too many things to do there. And i feel like you need to cut it out. You need to be on this little island. I also just want to talk. Because you and i were texting about this We're talking about a couple of goals and couples and films. And i can't talk enough about how much i love this movie. A promising young woman which i feel like was almost a deconstruction of typical romcom and also movie about couples and in many different ways and i just have been fascinated by it and i wanted to acknowledge that before. We got into this episode as well. That movie is so so far. I'm glad you saw it. I'm glad you loved it. That movie i was like i became in a couple in that movie. I became a couple with that movie. I felt so personally. Involved in the relationship. In that movie between carey mulligan and bill in bo burnham which i don't wanna talk about much at all except to say like i don't know if i fall in love with a couple to the emotion accent that i did in that movie it is It is a watch. Se is a capital. W watch you know we were talking about this on our texts like maybe there is room for us to tackle that as a bonus episode here shorter episode. Just kind of talking about this movie because they think it fits so well into what we're talking about but also Definitely want people to check it out. It's a it's a movie you have to check out so maybe right now. Just it's a call to arms go find this movie it's on. Vod you can watch it any way you can and and And get ready. Because if you like this'll be a nice addendum. If we are allowed to add one more to the mix it might be worthy of discussion a bigger discussion. I agree. I agree and i cannot stress enough that we should be able to break all the spoilers in there so pull. He's watching ahead of time if we do this. We really need to talk about that movie. That movie needs to be talked about. And i actually do think that movie would probably get a couple of oscar. Nominations the elephants critics we gave it best screenplay and best actress. Yeah i would agree with both of those. And i would say go into it knowing as little as you can. I didn't know much about it at all. I thought i had an idea of what i thought it was about. And then i was very wrong. And i love. I love having a movie really unwrap for me. And i know that something that you get to do a lot more than i do. Which is you get see films at festivals and you. It's at a beauty sitting down and not knowing a thing and that's the real way you should watch a movie. And i fell in love with this move even more. I think because of that you're breaking my heart it because as a both palm springs and promising woman that exact way at sundance last year. And so we're at the we're at the month. I didn't get to go to sundance this year and trump around in the snow and see a snowball for the one time. I get to see a snowball year and and soak in all of the movies atlanta be really important it so yes. My heart is a little bit broken. I also saw palm springs without knowing the premise of that as well and it was very happy about that. And i'm also bummed that. I'm not able to go to sundance this year. I have a film that is in sundance. But i guess now they're going to be a drive in but because of covid being so terrible There's not even a drive in anymore. It's going gonna be like a whole virtual red carpet situation but some really great movies. I'm looking forward to that. Pattie harrison movie with ed helms. Some interesting things going on so still film is pushing forward. Even though no one's in the seats. And i think all the premier's maybe on your at least my premiere on a computer at least we're going to have a lot of really good movies to catch up in twenty twenty two two and we need the theater. I'm hoping that stuff will cycle back around movies. That came out. Virtually we can like slip like. Did you see this big because here it is. I don't think that's going to happen. But i'm gonna tell you the best i don i. I think the only ones that would get that kind of play would be the big ones like a tenant or wonder woman and i feel like people are like no sought done and ten in already was out in the theater by. I mean i'm an optimist. I would love it by. You're not gonna get that only film that i've seen this whole year. Once covid started in the theater was tenant because remember. We rented a theater. Just me and my boyfriend that will be my one deatrich for the longest stretch of my entire life. It's like you're going through a breakup with movies amy. I'm even know seeing it at home. It's it's different. It's different Relationship now don't think about all of the groundhog dinners. You have as a critic like the number of dinners you have. That are just popcorn. Somebody gave you at a screening. Yes and how much. I was sick of popcorn and how much took popcorn for granted. I understand you bill. Murray i understand you in a new way. I want.
Cold Frames With Kini Jabbou
"I hope you're writing a book called that we can expect to come out next year. Yes i'm working on. And so i should say. Of course we'll have a book giveaway on with the transcript of the show on to garden dot com of your new book. I don't know how you manage to get this done. In addition to everything else. I don't know honestly but it was really fun to write and sort of revisit the whole season extending as well as you know the many other reasons besides harvey and cold weather So yeah this was a fun project for me for kept me busy. And it really is not against the instruction not just season extending but it's like insect prevention. It's like all of the uses for these sort of barriers and enclosures. And so forth right. And there's a wide range of of gizmos that you have gift moses. An underrated word. I'm going to have to steal that margaret on Yeah for sure. I mean i garden and nova scotia which is dear country as is of course much of the us and canada. And i deal with your every single day. I mean. I would note for a run in my neighborhood yesterday and had to stop. Let four deer walk across the road in front of me And they were probably on their way to my garden But yeah everything from deer and groundhogs two rabbits to cabbage worms and slugs and flea beetles and potato beetles and cucumber beetles. So there are a lot of reasons to consider covers. I think most people automatically go to season extension and protecting from cold weather. But you know. I use them in so many different ways to not only protect my food from pests and cold weather but even grow healthier plants in the end have larger harvest because those plans have been protected. You know and they're able to produce better so there are a lot of reasons to sort of. Consider yourself an undercover gardner right so in the introduction. I also said i was asking questions for friend. Oh yes my friend. Do you know how that is when you ask questions for a friend. What seriously. I actually do have a friend who just felt cold frames and this is his first late fall into winter with them and he actually did ask me the question i said but That is the oldest skies in the book. Have loads of cold frame questions for me to besides the extra extending of the season in the we'll get there. 'cause build a cold frame is actually the number one thing on the top of my 2021 garden to do less because i had an ancient one that succumbed finally kinda fell apart from earlier as the gardener here in a never replaced it. And i'm just jealous especially this last year. You know. i've been jealous of my friends who have renewed. I have my seedlings in the call frame. Oh i'm having solid from the cold front. You know all these little extra goodies so called frame one. Oh one maybe we should start with like what. What is it called frame four like. Why would i check. Because there's all again all these other gizmos in the book to use our new favorite word. Yeah for sure. Well i'm glad you brought up also starting seedlings in the cold frame because most of us. I think at this point thing cold frames or just for harvesting in winter or maybe pushing back spring a little earlier so that you can start planting in march or even late february depending where you live but you know you can use a cold frame for starting seedlings which will then be dug up and transplant it to your garden but you can also use them for overwintering half hardy perennials. Or if you love to force bulbs inside and oftentimes of course many need a cold period you can put them up and put them in a cold frame for a couple of months until that cold period is up so it's not just about growing vegetables. There are many uses for coltrane. So you know if you're into alpine plants or different things like that you can use them to shelter those over winter too so lots of applications but yeah for the most part i do use mine To get a jump start an extra extra early one in spring as well. Let's go later into fall and throat winter we harvest. But you know a cold frame really told. Job is to shelter plants from ice snow winter winds you know. And even though it's a small little gizmo or device you know it really does Taken a lot of solar energy and heats up like today here. It is for reasons like it's minus twenty celsius and. i don't know what that is his parenthood. I just know it's really cold but the temperature my cold fame out there. Now check this morning. It's just above freezing. And i mean that's amazing to me that it's sunny here today and therefore the temperature inside. The frame is just freezing. So that's the whole job of a cold frame to create a micro-climate around your plants and start those seeds earlier and harvest earlier and harvest out of season. So that's the main. I think the way most of us are going is a cold front so in this one one. Maybe we start with where is a good place
There's no vaccine for lies about the COVID-19 vaccine
"There is still not yet a vaccine for lies about the co vaccine from american public media. This is marketplace tech. I'm ali would the coronavirus pandemic has gone hand in hand with an info democ of misinformation about everything from homemade cures to weather masks. Work spoiler alert. They do now. If possible. the misinformation stakes have gotten even higher as the covid nineteen vaccine begins to roll out. Doses are set to be administered in the uk as soon as today and disinformation researchers. Say there's a whole new wave of renewed activity spreading lies about vaccine safety and the origin of the virus. Joan donovan is the research director of the shorenstein center on media politics and public policy at harvard so over the past couple of weeks. I've had several doctors as well as a hospital librarians. Asking us for help because people are showing up having junk science at their back. Asking about vaccine. Safety and doctors are wondering. Why is it these questions. Why now at this scale. We also need to do quite a bit clean up online especially around very key. Phrases related to vet the vaccine ingredients vaccine harms. Because we have you know over a decade now of vaccine misinformation. That is just littered about the internet much of which has been waiting for this moment to burst into the public consciousness. Remember what do you think about some of the tools that the platforms have employed in the primary one seems to just be this labeling and linking to some vetted resource you've been a little bit critical of that in some instances as i click through those labels. They're not immediately relevance sometimes or they're not targeted enough in terms of pointing people towards accurate information that they've almost started to become at least in the right wing media ecosystem they start to become a bit of a joke or a badge of honor to some folks. I think something that triggers and all of us when we see a label as we assume that things that are not labeled may be more true than they are in some ways feels like a little bit of a groundhog's day conversation you know the platforms are never quite doing enough in there too. Big and there is no regulation. And yet i think we would still agree though you and i that we also don't necessarily want these platforms fully in charge of deciding what we see given their scale right. What i'm interested in really understanding is how are they going to describe and define what counts as misinformation on their platform and then instead of retroactively. Really trying to band aid the situation. What is their design solution. That doesn't allow monied interests and with political reach to turn those systems against society. So you're saying there's a big delta between what they're doing now and even then becoming publishers in the sense where they're liable for what goes up. Yeah and i think that you know one of the you know. It's it's again groundhog day. But a feeling like a fool's errand to really try to care deeply about any politician you know pulling the rug out by taking section to thirty away for instance when it comes to trying to get platforms to stabilize how they serve information. That's what the struggle is here When trump is saying that we got to get rid of two thirty it's because the information ecosystem is so unstable that he can't wheeled it to his advantage. But we have to be cognizant of the fact of who's calling for this removal and under what conditions but we're going to have a struggle over large centralized communication systems are world's continuously rioted. No matter what is done now. The problem is always going to be you know when it comes to centralizing our communications. Are these platform companies being responsible to the broadest public. Good and at this stage we can. We can demonstrate. No i wonder. I wanna ask you from your perspective as a professor in a weird way it seems like social media platforms at this size or something. We also have to build immunity to like. They're also relatively new and our brains and figure society has not figured out how to handle this new type of virus should curriculum. Be a part of that like should we be designing curriculum for schools for children to teach them how to recognize truth. I think our educators. Do a fairly good job of that. What's hard is is when you go on line and you see a company like google whose tasked themselves with organizing the world's information but then they don't show you how they organize it and so it becomes a really complicated question for younger folks to say well. I have access to more information than any human being in the history of the world. And yet i have trouble finding true things or accurate things. Let's let's maybe scale it down one philosophical notch and so. I do think though that we do need curriculum for understanding it just as we would teach people the practice of citations and why that matters we do need to help. People understand what it is that there are seeing when they searched for You know information on any of these platforms and then you know. It's it's a hard problem though. I mean back in my day. Not that old but wicked pedia was considered this big enemy of the university. Right how could they possibly have so much information on wikipedia and it all be true right and so teachers would say you can't cite wikipedia but it's really where we all began our exploration even if we didn't necessarily show it and i think at this point now we do also have to wonder about the flow of timely local relevant and accurate information and so one of the things that i think. We also have to redesign as we think about and scale of these platform is is to what degree then. We also try to open knowledge and try to make sure that the world's resources information resources scientific publications are also available for people to be able to explore and understand and by and large journalists are the ones who provide that window into science popular science anyhow and and it's hard because we've seen also as we see platforms taking control we see journalists losing resources and Audience

National Mole Day with Andrew Geary
"Hi Paul this is Andrew in today is National Day. Now my first thought this day is in honor of Pucks Itani Phil, but then are moles and ground hogs, the same underground inhabitant. Or could it be honoring one of the greatest land air battles of all time went to bias the mole attack tiny town in Rocketeer George Michael saved the day on arrested development. Now. I know Netflix puts it Tada on everything but did they also put their stamp on National Day? I look forward to you sending me straight Paul. I Fan true according to the Internet malls in groundhogs are often lumped together in discussions regarding wildlife problems that result in turn up damaged landscaping. This is because they both utilized tunnel systems and caused damage to plants, roots, and beautiful lawns but that is where the similarity ends, but I severely digress. Today. October twenty third is national. Mall Day which has nothing to do with furry creatures. Today's all about chemistry specifically avocados number, which is the number of particles in one mole of substance the numbers approximately six point zero, two times ten to the twenty third. Get it ten, twenty, three. If you WANNA learn how to celebrate this day. Look no further than the lab out loud podcast were in one episode they discuss mold day and how they have celebrated it. You could also research Amadeo Gaudreau and put out a social media post using the National Mall. Day, Hashtag. My guest today is Andrew. Geary. Andrew is the host of the seismic sound all podcast now prepare yourself for a second seismic sound off episodes our in depth conversations in applied geophysics intimidated yet. Luckily, for you, I asked Andrew. Where someone like me who try to cheat his way through high school science classes could start. He wrote back the following and I quote our episodes tend to range from various associations, specific highlighting our annual conference to broad scientific subjects, addressing racism and geosciences. But the best place generally to start is our episodes focused on humanitarian projects we manage here is one looking at building a canal Peru that's a good start. Unquote. For Third Recommendation Andrew Sticks with science and recommends an episode from the Your Day podcast called what whales on nine eleven. While many of us reeling from the terrorist attacks in the United States something very unique was happening underwater. For today's extra all's I'll let you decide if you would prefer watching Netflix's with Andrew or May. We, have had A. Exchange about the German show dark. I loved it but punted few episodes into season three because it was just too confusing. Andrew has tried to me to keep going but remember his brain works a lot better than mine. But one thing should be said, it seems we both are big fans of the blue family. Come back on October thirtieth for maybe one of the most divisive pieces of candy ever.
Living In A Groundhog Day
"Good morning everybody. It's Iowa Mala and it's Thursday morning July thirtieth. Look. It's low cooler today here. So maybe it's cooling off. Where you are to hope your weather we having nice weather as we enter the end of the summer. Wow I was just thinking. Just a few minutes ago at one of my favorite movies is groundhog day and if you haven't watched the movie. What's the movie because I realized thinking about it We're living in a kind of groundhog. Day. And our temple is in Woodstock. Illinois and that's where the groundhog day movie was made. And so it there's a there's a great affection for Bill Murray and for the making of the movie and Woodstock Has A. GROUNDHOG's Day big festive weekend festival every year. So It's meaningful but. Before I had ever seen it. be a friend of mine. told me. It's the most Buddhist movie I've ever seen in. This is longtime ago when the movie was new. And I had to watch it two times to to get it. I think that was maybe even before I was a Buddhist or. had read anything or I don't know where my mind was when I first saw it. But It's one of those movies I can watch over and over again there are so many beautiful lessons in it and it's so funny and enjoyable it. It's a perfect pandemic movie. So if you I know I know I think now it's even on Netflix's I was looking for about a year ago. To let people know where they could find it and I couldn't find it anywhere on any kind of streaming media. Uh someone just sent a message Glenn Powers He sets my dad was an extra in groundhog day. That's great. So it's part of your family. Lower that's good. People talked about a bill. Murray would F- Baseball Games? For. The. People. And each state and he stayed in Woodstock, stock while the movie was being made. Just, this past year he did commercials in Woodstock that I just accidentally with a few other friends. We were having lunch on the square after. Right after temple on Saturday and. Bill. was shooting commercials so we got to watch him. And just kind of re live and they're the best they were I. Think they were given the best commercial. Honors for the. Super Bowl. You can see the jeep commercials. If you go on Youtube you can see they're just wonderful delightful commercials. So anyway, those little sight stories, but groundhog day is so similar to what we're living through. Now every we can wake up and we don't even know what day of the week it is. And it just keeps going. So I think that was that's what surprised all of us is. What a ride the suspend. An and it still is we don't see really any signs of things. Getting better right now. So if you watch that movie I, it will inspire you. Because, well, you'll see you'll get it when you watch it but That's we you know we all have bumps in the road of adjusting and dealing with a situation that throws us off balance but I'm hoping that most of you have found a reason. To wake up every day and have something interesting you WanNa do or something that you're that you're working on that you never had time to do before or you're getting little projects don you never had time to do before? that. You're taking zoom classes or you're reading or tuning into special classes on you to. We can use. Streaming media and things like. Youtube and things like. Facebook I'm recording this on facebook. We can use all of this stuff that. That before being I was I wanted to be off facebook I had no use for it. Before the pandemic and now I find that it's it's just a beautiful. Communication vehicle so. And I can I can do it. So it's very low tech so That's a good thing too. But. We can discover the good things about maybe technology that we that we didn't feel very good about before. We can. We can stay connected with people, which is now we really understand how important it is. And, we can find out about what's going on all over the world. And we don't have to stay We don't have to stay in the dark about what's really happening. We can investigate things and find out what's going on. So let this be your. Bill Murray Groundhog Day experience, and when you see the movie, If you haven't seen it, you must see it and when you do see at your your understand. and. I think it'll make every day a little bit more bright for you. So. There's so much. We can all be learning and we can be learning to understand just. Almost all of the Buddhist teachings. This is perfect. This is a perfect retreat for us a perfect workshop. And I know a lot of you don't feel like it's a retreat because you're still working and you're still having to deal with things that are scary and frightening and. You're worried about your kids and what we're going do about school and we're all worried about so many things but. I don't want to minimize any of that. But at the same time, this is a time for us to look look inside of us. Find the joy of helping other people find the joy of finding of really understanding. Some of the things that are important to us and the people who are important to us and understanding ourselves. So use it to be. Something that you can look back on and think. I I got a lot of good out of it

That came to Netflix's weekend. And that's when you caught up with Josh and they understand. You liked it. Maybe not as enthusiastically as I did, but you went forward. Okay? Yeah, consider me. Me a fan, I think I probably became a little more wearied by the gunplay. Which you mentioned was your talked about it probably a little more than you did, but yeah, definitely appreciated and think it's something that people should check out. Last weekend also saw the release of the World War Two thriller Greyhound with Tom Hanks that's on apple, plus neither of us have had a chance to see that yet, but fellow critics have assured us that the nation's fathers and grandfathers have a new favorite movie and Josh. Also last weekend, the new horror film relic available on demand. Palm Springs. The groundhog day inspired comedy which is available on. You saw relic. We both saw Palm Springs, and we'll give each of those a little bit of time later in the show, but first tires. Please cue up our review discussion of Christopher. Interstellar. We haven't mentioned our mission does not work if the people on our dead by the time you pull it off. That this far any human history, not far no! Doubt. Yes, you are yes, you are. Upon, its release in two thousand fourteen atom, we gave interstellar a robust thirty minute review. You were hugely enthusiastic. I was mixed to negative. You remain a big Fan and you've seen it sense I believe right. Yeah, all right in two thousand seventeen. They're going meter. Yup, at the music box theatre where it's going to be playing again this weekend actually here in Chicago in seventy millimeter interstellar currently ranked number two on your Nolan. List for me this. Who've review was my first revisit sense two thousand fourteen now on the two of us. The movie has a score of seventy four. Critic among critics that's considered generally favorable, and for what it's worth. Most of Nolan's movies hover around the seventies on metacritic Dunkirk. That's his highest rating there with a ninety four. So that's where we stood. But where do we stand now in two thousand twenty? Have you add them passed through a wormhole and come out on the other side to see the error of your ways have I been sucked into a black hole trapped behind some cosmic bookshelf as punishment until I admit the air of mine. We could relitigate are twenty fourteen debate. We could revisit the same points. We both brought up, but I'm not sure how fruitful that would be I'm happy to do some of that and I promise I will not bring up a certain nineteen, sixty eight sci-fi epic. You declared verboten when discussing interstellar listeners, they can revisit that whole discussion in the archives at film spotting dot net episode five fifteen. Today. I'd like to start where that review ended in a last-minute attempt to bring me on board Adam. You asked me if I wasn't just plain thrilled watching interstellar. If setting aside my complaints quibbles, I couldn't admit to having a thrilling movie going experience. I quickly answered in the negative and we moved on. Watching interstellar again, and this was before I, release into I review or even read what I had written about in two thousand fourteen. This was the exact question I found myself asking especially in the context of our overview with so many Nolan films fresh in my mind at their best. His movies do thrill me. They get me Giddy. There's always a moment. Nolan blows your Noggin, intellectually emotionally existential early, and all I can do is let out a Guffaw of appreciation. We've already talked about some of these. These moments in our overview. I think of Memento where Leonard says I'm chasing this guy. Nope he's chasing me. Or how about the image of the hats in the prestige? When we realize what's really going on here and I know you care less about it than I, do Adam, but the spinning top in those final moments of inception. Wow on twitter this week marking. The tenth. Anniversary Kevin Geogra- Nov, said this a decade later and I still remember the entire pact prescreening audience audibly gasping at the smash cut ending. That was me.

"Isn't that cool? I thought you as soon as you sign on Fisk comes up. That's what's happening on this APP and what I like about it is that it's not just like you know. Breed in for for cans breathe out for eight counts is also like talking about micro aggressions at work. You know like they have actual blog posts they have actual conversations and a lot of the different elements that we're dealing with as people of Color in this world so I thought that was very cool. I've actually never seen that before. And now that I think about it like an APP that focuses on our our communities specifically so Julio Rivera. He's a tech entrepreneur and the APP is called liberate and he actually said that what made would introduce him to meditation in the first place was the head space APP. The member head space scientists love had space like. They're they really kind of set the tone clearly. I mean look who they've inspired. They've even helped our own communities but I love Them. Because it's like a really ease for mindful approach through like explored guided exercises and videos to help people feel better. I liked that they even have them on. The flights have been on the flights where it's in the it's an option studio is needed listening to music. Watching movies or meditate right is traveling but I really love the website And the guy's voice which I love I don't if y'all have used head space but the guy's voice is really cool. He has like a really useful playful but calming voice at the same time or like Chris. Channel has seen a chart. When you go on the site which is head space dot com. It says just ten days of heads base can increase your happiness by sixteen percent. I'm super curious because sometimes sixteen percent is all you got when Dublin it. That's a lot. That's a nice healthy chunk of change and I love it because they are over sixty million. That's right six zero people connected on head space which means that it is a social media platform all its own so if you wanna find some like minded people and maybe you know turn it into a different kind of platform. You have the opportunity. Do that too so definitely took out. Just wear a mask a sixty million motherfuckers in here. Just put a mask on and never going to go over to my personal favorite which I have mentioned on this show before insight timer. That's an S. I G. H. T. T. I. M. E. R. dot com is also an APP. Forty thousand free guided meditations. They even have which I think is pretty cool. They have these bell sounds. Maybe you don't want to hear someone's voice maybe you don't want to be guided through someone's voice because sometimes someone's voice can take you out of it if you don't like it you know what they're saying just doesn't resonate so they have this bell option these interval bells that you can actually set up so instead of someone Literally guiding you. It's more of like a bell guidance. So just kind of remind you of how much time you have left or just easily. Bring those bell. Sounds really calming to your nervous system so I love this. And that's why I listen to Hail Mary by two part bail. Sounds Dome Come? Is You ever been in a different city or town? Whoever where the church bells? Let's you know this is like you see how everyone stops is something about. It's a very calming kind of like grounding feeling so I love that they have that option they also have sound baths which I love if you love a crystal singing bowls. I know that a lot of you're tagging to CARUCCI engineer. Ako who both were on is e live apparently doing different like guided meditations with teachers and practitioners using the Christmas thing about. It's really really nice out yet. Let Asante up on his phone. I was in genetics when she was on a really really nice sound and it has a lot of emotional health benefits depending on which bowl they play. Some of them could help you with your throat. Health some of help you with your heart..

"Though I'm a better person. Don't show one out. Don't you want to take a vacation? And feels like let's move here is he got Stockholm central. No, I think that's just an screenwriting storytelling. That's the arc that this is the place ate it. And now he's in love with it. It's like doc Hollywood. He's gonna stay there and be the dock. No. And I'm being cynical by asking that question. I'm coming to looking to nitpick, but I liked this ending sweet ending, and it doesn't protract-. It. We start the day. He's in love. It's a brand new day. And they just walk out of the house and credits. Roll I'm glad we don't have. Also have the drive back to Philadelphia with Larry and his raspberry donuts. But before we start the show over tomorrow. Why don't we get to recommends Jacob Arnie? Do you recommend groundhog day? Jacob. Oh, definitely. I don't think I hit my hand. Very well here. I consider this classic for reason. There's a simplicity to it, which take all this. Oh, repeating timelines and all this philosophy. But it presents very simply a humorous manner light-hearted manner. There are pulling emotional moments. Like, I said the whole montage with the homeless, man. I do get very emotional during all that. I get swept up by Phil Connors forget about Bill Murray. And this guy who was such a jerk. Now, he's doing everything candidate help this man. Whether that's acting on Bill Murray's part directly on herald Ramos's part a combination of both whatever it is. It comes together for a great magical realism Brown. Calm for me. I am not the fan of wrong calms, but I will watch this film day after day after day after day and not. Plane asked me ten thousand viewing in a row. Maybe I'll complain then. But no, I love this movie to me it is a comedy classic. But it's got a ton of hard. It's not just about the laugh strongest recommends Arnie it's definitely recommend. And I don't think I've hid that either. It is the heart. The gets to me even the first time there are humorous moments. But this to me isn't one of those laugh out loud funny movies. It's one of those kind of more rhyme movies that I smile at yet. It's the emotion behind it. And the fact that this movie made me think when I saw I was eighteen years old. And I was asking myself am I living the same day over and over again it felt like it was waking up and going to the same classes and doing the same things and delivering the same pizzas. And watching the same shows, it really got me thinking philosophically, and what I like is how tightly it's written without feeling over script. It you know, again I picked on. And I love back to the future the first one. Yes. The first one, but I picked on it years ago because I felt it was a little over scripted and too clever by half here. It's just the right amount of clever. I really think this is very close to cinematic perfection in as Jacobs said its simplicity. It is what it is. And it doesn't try to be more. It's just a small town a story of a single man on a single day. And I love it for that. But Jacob it's almost like you jumped into my head because you said you could watch this day after day. My only reservation about this movie is I had to take a deep breath and go, Harry, we're watching groundhog day again. It's kind of like the Pearl Jam song. Jeremy Jeremy came out in. I think it was ninety three and loved Jeremy and for twenty years loved, Jeremy. And then I realized they play Jeremy. Just to God damn much on the radio. I can't escape Jeremy if you're going to hear Pearl Jam on the nineties on nine, it's probably Jeremy, you know. It's just that song is everywhere to the point that I can't listen to Jeremy anymore. It's I still very good song. But if it's on the radio, I have to turn it off. And I'm almost there with groundhog day. The twenty four hours of groundhog day thing has gotten to the point where I didn't feel like I needed to watch it for this view. Pardon me. I didn't feel like I wanted to watch it for this review because I've seen it so much that I just I need to have distanced from it to appreciate it more..

"And then the magic hits I'm okay, if they explained it that way, but you'd have a hell of a hard time explaining why anyone wants fill to relive groundhog day. There's Woody Allen movies. I think with people get hypnotized or voodoo. Curses there's tons of things like that that just don't work. So the fact that they'd said, you know, this curses that needed. Here is a credit to them. They don't need to throw that in there because the movie can work without having to know. Exactly the reason good for them. And they set up the rules pretty easy on the third day. Phil break a pencil and put it by the clock a pencil that was underneath in the bed stand. And when that six o'clock rolls around that's the magic number, I guess, everything resets. And now that pencils whole again. It does little things like that to kind of establish how this universe works. But I don't need to know the whole magic spell and all the words that I need to chat that give someone this curse. I like the simplicity here. I agree completely. I think that this just works, and you could easily take it as the magic of the town pucks to Tani is this Phil calls in a hamlet. I think that's an actual good term for it. It's almost this magical quaint small town where as Brock set. There's no computers. There's no cellphones. Even though those were becoming more common house Zack Morris had a cell phone before this movie came out. It feels timeless, and I don't feel this movie dated poorly at all because with the exception of the obligatory line. The phones are down and my cell services at working other than that this movie could be taking place today in a small town. There's a small town. I go to every year for Christmas shopping that is much like this is just this quaint little tourist trap. Do they have payphones? They're still they do this. Okay. That's the one thing that if I was watching this with my kids now, they actually might ask me. What is that? The thing is Arnie that. Yes, it also if you go on vacation like, you know, any part of the world, you can live in that kind of way still so and this is kind of like one of those little bed and breakfast kind of towns what I do enjoy the watching this movie. So many times is that when he comes out like third day. I think he talks to a woman and says where you're going. It's groundhog day. We're going to the groundhog later on. She comes out to be the piano teacher. And it turns out that she lives around the corner from him in later later on in the movie when he's at the hospital. So that you see the kid who falls out of the tree with a broken leg behind the old man's hospital like their little nuggets like that that if you watch this movie enough, you can see it's not like community when they have things in the back and game of thrones or things payoff, but has little. Bits like that here. And there that are a lot of fun for repeat. I never noticed the kid with the broken leg Brock. That's cool. I'll look for that next time. I didn't notice is the psychologist anywhere. He might be my favorite towns person. Or maybe it's just the way Bill Murray is Carter's treats when he if he went to veterinary psychology and Bill Murray did a lot of ad living here for somebody who wanted the movie to be more dramatic, his ad-lib are usually the funniest things and herald Ramos, you know, you got to take away the possible explanations. Right. You got to take away all in his heads. You bring in a psychiatrist you gotta take away something like he has it's her in his brain. And he's going to die in the last scene. So they bring in herald Ramos to do an x Ray of his head and say, you're physically fine. But a good director cameo there. Then it just becomes a cycle. And it's interesting how he comes to terms with the so quickly. I mean by day three he's just telling Rita. I'm not doing the report you do the report. Come see me in the diner. You're the producer. We have to do something..

"He also learned how to play the piano, sculpt ice sculptures and the answer to every jeopardy question on that day show, and Phil has a tremendous day his speech at the groundhog day festival moves people to tears he saves a child from falling out of a tree stops a man from choking and his actions. Catch redesign the spend the evening hanging out and fall asleep fully clothed in his bed, and he wakes up to find. It's February third the time loop is ended and he and Rita are in love. But Phil is also grown to love pucks to tawny and muses about moving there as credits. Roll now groundhog day. I don't know if you guys that was a big deal in your house for whatever the big deal on anyone's house. Are you a story hours a huge deal the follow home? It was a big deal in my house. I still get a card from Arnie every February. It was for some reason. My mother was way into groundhog day. She loved the weather. She loved winter's gonna end she see your shadow everywhere. She just talk about it in the days leading up, and she could not wait and every year, she'd be like smoking cigarettes and drinking some gin if he saw his shadow and she had six more weeks of winter. The only connection I have groundhog days. If you listen to primus they had a song called groundhog day on their Frizzle fry album. And so if you mentioned groundhog day before this film came out, I would just think of that song even though it's not even really about groundhog day. And the only connection I have is my best friend's birthday groundhog. So that's it. He's he nicknamed the groundhog. No. If you played football at Betty would be, but I do ask them if you tell a shadow of almost every birthday, and this movie actually just completely shaped my idea of what groundhog day was because to me it was just either in the paper the guy on the news would say he saw his shadow. He didn't seeing the ceremony and everything I'm like, okay? So this is groundhog day. My illusion was completely shattered researching this film and find out pokes to Tony fill is. But one of many weather forecasting rodents across the country. If you are in Pennsylvania pucks to Tony Phil maybe your thing. But if you're in North Carolina. Sir. Walter Wally, or if you're in New Jersey, there's Billtown Mel guess what? In California, we have the sun never at the air. It's never cold and groundhog day is celebrated in forty nine states. Who doesn't celebrate it and Lasca Alaska decided they were no longer. Celebrate it and replaced it with marmot day marmot. Okay. What's a moment? Sounds like something Ellen fund would say, it's a large squirrel than you. Find lasca. All right. Never heard of marmot. No, I've never seen a moment. You might have thought it was a groundhog. They look really similar. All right. But this is a real ceremony Punxsutawney, Phil. And I read that they used to have like two thousand people maybe show up, and then after this film, it went up to ten thousand the next year and other getting forty thousand people in pucks tiny. I don't even know whether stayed everyone just Airbnb in their homes out there. There's not forty thousand houses out there that and they have celebrities come now, the people from this movie of come out and been the grand marshal of the ceremony. It's remarkable how this is taken off to be its own thing. Both Bill Murray and Harold Ramos have been the grand marshal there. But before we're introduced groundhog day. We're introduced to the crew of WPA nine the Philadelphia station with Phil giving the weather forecast, which I absolutely love how he's doing. All this pantomime ING in front of a blue screen for only. He's just seeing nothing. The first time I saw this movie. That was the first time I ever saw..
