And make strike crazy and some of the best lines right here in this cold open lady I remember filming this episode and John Krinsky was so funny we could not hold together. Well, we all knew how great he wasn't impressions and so when he got to actually flex that a little, we were just like, Oh, I can't wait to watch. We'll Angela I think it's called open house two of our most quoted moments for sure number one. Bears Beats Battles, Star GALACTICA. T shirts is that on on everything and also identity theft is not a joke jim millions of families suffer every year. That's right I. see that all the time. Identity Theft is not a joke. Don't we sell pencils that say identity theft is not a joke. Don't we have a PENCIL ON OFFICE LADIES DOT COM? Yes, and we have that quote, right? We have. Bears Beats. Battle. Star GALACTICA. It's just one of my favorite quotes. It is not my favorite quote of the whole episode though we'll get to that.

CANTU pedia thinks we only did about eight takes of this. He said it went a lot faster than we may realize. Well, it was a quick beat. You know it was a quick scene. And then I asked Justin and he said that he and Brent did not write this cold open. They wrote a cold open where Michael is getting scammed by a telemarketer but during the rewriting process gene and league are.

"And maybe just pin little bit of a picture for the audience who haven't known you for twenty years like I have about some of the things you've done, so you would sapient you're you're you're working and user experience and some of those things and then? A Couple you went to the agency world, you worked at apple you worked at square. Thank at one point. Before coming down so if you think about some of the things that you did before sound down. What were some of the formative pieces? Thought were really interesting that you sort when you came to sound and you're like. Oh, here's something I can apply here. Perspective skill something like that. Yeah I reflect on that a lot and. UNRELATED TO APPLE IF YOU'VE listened to Steve. Jobs is I know the jobs get of quote, but. The fact that he said it is secondary to the idea which was you can to better understand where you are today, you can only connect the dots in reverse, and you can say well. How did one decision to another lead to another in how this connecting those dots help me understand it in so doing that in the benefit of this conversation I've always been. been fascinated about how humans interact with technology, what does that relationship between tools and technology and the reciprocal nature of the world that we live it as which is the result of tools and technology so I? I Love sci-fi was always watching Star Trek Star Wars you name it good bad Sifi! Always just take it all in, and because really interested in how? A world that had technology was itself a reflection on society, and I think Especially now with something like voice, that's playing itself out so. In the early days I didn't understand that as well and I don't think the the world of of technology was was. Quite at the sci-fi level yet, just getting a website you know going back twenty years. Getting a website was cool, but it. It wasn't the most exciting thing and. But I was always interested in digital after leaving Sapien I went on the agency side, but it was always very comfortable. Helping clients build websites. And digital advertising. I made the move to Apple. In two thousand seven have the day I joined with the day the iphone launched. And that was a pretty chaotic time. A very different company than it is now, and I spent five years building APPLE DOT COM and A lot of digital communication email worldwide. And but this idea of people in technology it I mean obviously being apple. You learn a lot about that. In Steve himself talks about you know liberal, liberal arts and technology merging so it's not a new concept. After apple I wanted to get a little bit closer. How companies were built so I left to go motion. Recruited by former apple colleague. And for those sites leap motion a real following. It was It was touch lists, but it was gesture based. It was actually hand and finger tracking to really high fidelity. and I learned what it needs to be. An interesting involved will start up. That's its own. PODCAST in and of itself. square for me was an opportunity to really build. A marketing practice within a more established company from scratch although that moving away from the leap motion environment where it was human computer warrant to Fintech. Realize I distance myself. From what I was passionate about so southbound with how to fight the voice platform. Is the culmination of my experience in large companies small companies. Immersed in. A world of Scifi or being more distant from it, and so it really is a combination of a lot of things. I think that's why for me. Personally I feel like we have a lot of momentum. So you Reverend Scifi. SCIFI fancy listed the voice about bad gas, not surprising being the industry, and so, what sei fide did you like to follow? Well I describe myself as a trekkie. I mean I'll. All of it and so that's. Most people. Who are inside I will have an affinity for. It's always a very safe. Safe Choice but but then as things started to diversify, really got into battle star. GALACTICA reboot and I really loved. The expanse is fan, although not everybody follows that in but when it comes to to star Trek I'm very agnostic. I love the old stuff and the new stuff than I know some of that's been poor polarizing, but it's always really just been. How does it does it help? Facilitate A world that allows us to to be more human I mean. That's always been been what Star Trek. Spin about so you can't ignore that and and be in the

V. it is something we have never ever done before but first things first I need to know what is in my show called Sabah just to Sabah because all guests who is connecting via Skype from Australia has a show on news Sky News that's just her first name Shari that's very cool she's political editor at large of the daily telegraph in the antipodes charity mark said welcome to America fast thank you so much it's so great to be with you morning here across say that ma'am you are a dedicated ladies seven AM on the opposite side of the world you are on the show because I spied an article that you wrote that was picked up by my friend my former colleague Tucker Carlson at fox and it it uses the very fancy word dossier and it's a dossier about to the Chinese corona virus tell us why this article this dossier story is pinned at the top of your Twitter page Shari Markson S. H. A. R. R. I. Cherie boxes tell us why this is such an important story it is such an important story because this is documents this reset the stock yeah whatever you want I it was pretty bad I consent message meant at least two concerned what document and it just run a logically fundamentally nice app thanks corruption against China so this is this is true undisclosed good guy nations that use that capacity to just do a I did a time my myself based upon open source is available to me from the state department in the state of trump's state department I publish that time line for offerings at the heritage of the heritage foundation you could check it out tell us about this timeline this dossier the the the documents what China did and didn't do for example one of the most important things that I don't know sherry up being reported by your colleagues in the rest of the mainstream media the problem with the mainstream media requirement is that becoming sorry distracted with a sideshow is whether or not whether or not it was not nice and that is such an important part of the story it really is but it's it's not anywhere near the whole story that's maybe ten percent you know what how China has behaved he is the citizens bank bass became aware and Debbie is a common topic covenant not incompetent they destroyed evidence they detain doctors who tried to raise the alarm journalist activist anyone who tried to speak out about this virus disappeared I shot down testing it was such a deliberate cover up that there is a huge case of negligence yeah and China needs to be held accountable in terms of the document it divided into five main beats and I'll just read them to you please if you are the past is the silence and they disappeared and that's where it speaks about activists and journalists the doctors all these brave souls who were either arrested it all have completely vanished shocks but trying to tell the rest of the world it was a new virus on the set and while I'm at just so people understand that we don't talk about Belgium we're not talking about Sweden this is communist China that still is a Maoist they may have billionaires inside the Central Committee but one of the doctors and I documented this in my piece one of the doctors who spoke out just truthfully about what's happening in Wuhan there's an outbreak the market might be connected he was shot down he was put under house arrest and then what did the calmest pani Beijing do full steam like Mao in the nineteen sixties with the recalcitrant enemies of the state he was forced to make a a public self denunciation so if people think that you know China is different no it's still a one party dictatorship and if you say something truthful the party doesn't like you will be put up for display and you will have to publicly denounce yourself what for what you said so that's that's the first thing the people who was silenced intimidated put under bill disappeared carry on please sorry well scene just a bit more detail on it that way doctors before I sounded the alarm they were detained news of the arrest splashed across the state media television and they went and and then you sign and was that it was spreading false rumors I and and one of the stock is probably the one you're referring to actually end up dying yes so this is this is a massive cover up the army should be dissipated says all these rumors swirling on social media in China now we in the west in China already thanks the tree begins to slip past because the state media so I sense it now this room isn't happy and was even reported the South China morning post it on the bar actually work at the institute of urology one young lady has disappeared and the instant you cannot publicly denies that she disappeared but there has been no I prefer black students so there are real concerns now in in western governments in fact is mentioned in the stock yeah there are now concerns I thank you know has she met with foul play where is she and why not yeah this is a communist state but what what else one of the of the saab parts of this dossier yes the second hi is the suppression and destruction of evidence and she added it speaks about how the virus samples will only destroying action and genomics the bar trees after that he said that the testing they destroyed the and samples I talked about how you know the white market that that we keep hearing about how the wet market was disinfected and bleached or adequate number of environmental samples could be taken I it talks about how the Shanghai not that was the best to shed the genome sequence of the virus was shot rectification and then another another delightful malice term rectification I mean truly Orwellian exactly so that's you know this this really got into it this suppression and destruction of evidence you know it's not mine was China and the world health organisation not alerting the rest of the world but they were destroying virus samples I mean this is this is criminal no absolutely and and the question is what happens next in the last few minutes we have with you she shall remarks and political editor lots of The Daily Telegraph Sky News in Australia I I've been keeping up to date on things in Australia my friends Miranda Devine great Connelly keep up with me up to date one of the unique positions your it is that your nation in

the Wu Han virus is this is this finally the the requisite wakeup call for Australia what are we seeing in terms of the off the sharks across the political spectrum in at least Australia it is has well hang where we got it we got an issue here with your microphone can you stop that again it has to wake up well to some extent and I think public right apart this is alley it hasn't been enough well and still that's incredibly respond to the outcry about politicians about prime minister applications and much more measured in yards in the state and there is quite a reason and that is that China is such an essential crucial strategic accu check out comedy depends on time well this is where where we're losing a contact here we're going to continue this discussion right now I have re tweeted the pinned tweet on her dossier article it's at the top of my feet said goal could dot com keep doing what you do Australia is in the thick of it you're right on the front line you are one of

What Would Space Do to the Human Body?
"Hey brain stuff. It's Christian Sagar. Do you remember that? Time in Battle Star Galactica when that one character was blown out an airlock into outer space without a suit. No what about when it happened in two thousand one or guardians of the galaxy or sunshine. Yes we all dream about traveling in space but movies are any indication we spend almost as much time thinking about flying around up there without a suit on. So let's answer this question once and for all what would space actually due to a human body. Well here's the good news. You wouldn't die instantly y-you might actually survive for a little bit out there. How do we know because somebody tested it out on dogs in nineteen sixty five researchers at Brooks Air Force Base in Texas exposed several dogs to a near vacuum? The dog survived for up to ninety seconds. But if they went two minutes or more they died when re pressurized and if your first thought is they did this two dogs look. I'm I'm right there with you. Researchers at NASA did the same to chimpanzees in the late nineteen sixties finding that they could last up to three point five minutes. And then there's been a few accidents where people got D and then re pressurized like technician at Johnson Space Center who lost consciousness after twelve seconds. This was just before the moisture on his tongue began to boil. That's right his tongue boiled seat without air pressure to keep your precious bodily fluids in their liquid state. They would rapidly lose heat energy before they froze and then evaporated totally. This isn't the worst thing the lack of pressure can do to you. Either the gases inside you would expand causing you to swell up like a balloon in a Thanksgiving Day parade. This includes air and gas bubbles formed from your boiling bodily fluids. That affect is called. Ed Bula Sam which can block your bloodstream with those bubbles and that would cause you to pass out in about fifteen seconds from the lack of blood flowing into your brain your skin's blood vessels would burst. Your internal organs would also swell in likely tear. But you wouldn't explode in total recall. You just stretch painfully until you died. Keep in mind so far. We've only been talking about the effects to a body
Apple TV+ Hits Friday. Its Series (Mostly) Miss
"Let's start out with the explanation of apple TV this is a relatively new thing what we need to know about apple TV yeah this the views today actually if you bought an apple device after September ten graduations you already have it absolutely free for at least a year you can get a free trial by going to the apple TV app if not you can check out apple TV plus for four ninety nine a month it is launching a bunch of big buzz he shows the top of them is the morning show it's a drama starring Reese Witherspoon Jennifer Aniston and Steve corral and it's a dramatic show despite the stars that are in it about a morning show that separate the meat you scanned all all of the today show and throws it into turmoil there's also CD which is a game of thrones style drama about a world where everybody is blinds starring Jason Momoa from game of thrones bunch of other shows on there it's I watch all of them at this point it is very much a mixed bag the only one that I really liked and I really can't recommend to everybody this show called you can send the stars Hailee Steinfeld as young Emily Dickinson and it's kind of like euphoria beats thirty rock meets his drama beats a million different things uncategorized of all but I was fascinated I and like to at least one joke perhaps said the morning show is ridiculously entertaining but supercell Sirius spend fifteen million dollars an episode which is an insane amount of money but apple so they're putting all of their chips in the US but so far I think everybody in the office here to senator greens the shows are not great so if you have a free trial and do you want to check it out certainly I would suggest sampling the morning show sample taken standing if that all sounds interesting if you're into sci fi there's a show from Ronald D. Moore who created it Battlestar Galactica calls for all mankind was about an alternate history where America lost the space race very well made but also reporting frankly but it the other thing if you don't have a free trial I would hesitate to recommend spending even before ninety nine the account just because I've been plagued by a lot of tech issues today people have been proud of had problems logging into free trials finding the shows except for so give it some time listen to the bison that baby check it out in a couple of weeks if you're interested what are they doing on the morning show that's costing fifteen million per episode is that for the kids a great cast is is that a lot of that money goes out to them is that what it is I think a lot of money wanted to them it's also it's a gorgeous looking show it's beautifully shot by being the letter who started director jail for awhile after she corrected the action movie the peacemaker mess and she did deep impact immediately after that but you don't ton of TV since then it's at the starting the shot was very clearly spent a ton of money on this and again the ID it's kind of trashing it's like very much a trashy soap operas so I don't know why they spent that much money on it but I I don't have a lot of time I sat down to watch three solid hours this nonstop back to back yes I could not stop playing so just in terms of entertainment value I think it's worth it for that I'm trying to think of the track record of other networks when they rolled out a new schedule I remember when fox first became a network years ago it was kind of a slow rollout they just did a couple shows at the beginning and then build from there it's got to be tough to come up with a full schedule of shows and have a mall be successful and and great right that's almost impossible it's almost impossible and this is a big problem with apple TV plus right now that they're not taking the lessons but a lot of the other streaming that works done even Netflix did that very slowly enabled out house of cards then they had arrested development arch new black before they wrapped up to you thirty five new television shows every single day of the week apple TV plus is trying to be all of that media plea almost wanting more of their own each be within their own Netflix because the other thing that you should know about this for the apple TV plus price you're only getting the shows you're not getting everything that he is on TV that you would normally get from the iTunes store the TV store or anything like that yeah it's just the additional shows so I wish there were better it seems like they just gave people blank Jackson said to everyone we don't know what's going on the TV so again some of the stuff is get service desk very bad hopefully it'll get better they're certainly not giving it up anytime soon because all the shares regardless of quality have been picked up for a second season I gotta tell ya I'm surprised that that your stars like a Reese Witherspoon Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell are selling out to apple like that it just seems weird to me you know they've found a big screen the alignment and that I think they said was they want to give creators the chance to really express themselves so this case it's it's produced by Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston it's been playing very different parts I will say they're both fantastic at the show Jennifer Aniston is unlike you ever seen her before so I think that's what they're going for the chance and the same thing that other folks are jumping at is actually a new version of Oprah's book club the diffuse its first absent today and again I think it was just this blank check that apple had into them and said you do what you want you follow your muse and some people follow their views and absolutely wrong direction and hopefully of course correct a little bit and that somebody will give them a little more guidance going
NBC's Upcoming Streaming Service Is Called… Peacock
"Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Felony of the Hollywood reporter and Matt. We talk now. A lot about the newcomers comers in the streaming world. These old guard companies warner media et CETERA are spending a fortune and in a way you could argue argue risking a great deal by trying to launch the streaming services and there are different business models. You know you have your your net flicks model where you pay whatever twelve thirteen dollars a month now. We have a Disney coming in with seven dollars a month apple five dollars a month for free if you have a new device all of these things. NBC See has coming is now entering the field kind of behind the other guys with peacock a streamer. That's going to be again a different model yeah and and the key thing here is that NBC universal is owned by comcast which is already a massive distributor. They've cable services other services as well. They are are coming up this from a slightly different perspective and the way that's manifesting is that most comcast cable subscribers will be able to get this new peacock service this with ads for free and they're using it to kind of keep people in their ecosystem and that's a big differentiator here. It's going to be mostly at driven ribbon. There will be a tier where you can pay extra to get it for to get it without ads similar to Hulu but most of the comcast subscribers are GonNa got this with ads. It really shows that while every company right now is trying to get into the streaming game they're doing for different reasons and they're coming at it from a different perspective respect yeah and of course it's causing confusion for consumers and a question of how much are you spending for what but also an incredible bonanza for anybody who has an old old show. I mean they are talking about coming up with reboots of Battle Star. GALACTICA saved by the bell things that you know I I don't even remember burst in some cases existed in the first place the and they're gonNA end. They're gonNA add some original stuff from Mike sure who made the good place and parks and REC and Brooklyn nine nine so you know they're looking as bill McGoldrick Guy who's going to run this thing. We are looking for loud buzzy originals finals so that that can make a name for ourselves. I love it when people are asked about the strategy. What's the strategy. We're looking for compelling program Riley. Everybody we'll talk about okay. Thanks now the big the big bonanza here and there is really a bonanza going on in the TV business if you do not have a TV show and you are atv the writer you may you may start to question your talents because there are a ton of opportunities right now and the biggest are for these libraries shows shows that are proven hits that have been big in syndication are now getting the second windfall from streaming just in the past week we saw. Big Bang theory go for six hundred million dollars just for the streaming part it also re up syndication putting that in the billions of dollars for one show Big Bang theory. This peacock service is going to launch with the office and the office is a massive. NBC Universal Property. They're paying upwards of five hundred million for this. That's great eight news for all the prophet participants on these shows but it's a bad thing for the rights and it's a bad thing for the companies that are trying to license material no because the prices are just sky high right now. Yes it's GONNA pay. I mean the good news. America can rest easy because Dick Wolf is going to get even richer with the massive amount of shows that he has that he can put together and and licensed so Y- what a what a windfall for these guys and in the case of NBC you they are essentially buying the office from themselves so it's not like they are paying an outside studio but they have to set that price because the prophet participants on the show show need to get paid and they are getting paid at this very high valuation that is designed to keep Netflix out. Keep Disney out. Keep all these other bidders. Everyone one is trying to stock up for the streaming. Moore's yes. We've seen a lot of litigation when companies buy things from themselves so people will be watching that closely. Thank you matt

"And ten year old daughter to make sure that they're safe but he is caught up in what the the official synopsis refers to as Tweet now confirmed later journalism and it looks to all the world that he was responsible for the bombing and he basically just goes on the run to prove his innocence and find his family and make sure that they're ok well. This legendary cop played by Kiefer. Sutherland is is tracking him down so I mean you know the the premise for the fugitives like the it's. It's undeniably viably compelling right like you've got this man on the run story which automatically you know puts the audience on that character side and you can have as Tommy Lee Jones proved moved in his Oscar winning performance in in the original movie. You can have somebody who really digging and chewing on some scenery and having a lot of fun as the person who is tracking this guy down so conceptually it works I just. I don't know if I'm fully sold on Qube yet. Yeah Kiefer Sutherland was like the perfect guy for this role quimby so it's like a streaming service from Jeffrey Katzenberg and it can be short term content. So what does that mean like. How long are these episodes. Do we know yet I mean in general. They've talked a lot about colby being around the ten minute mark. I think I've seen anywhere from seven to twelve minutes per episode sewed and the thing is they have so much content like equipped. He doesn't even launch until April Sixth of twenty twenty but for the past I don't know six six months or so. They've been signing some of the biggest names in Hollywood to create content for them and it's it's like every single day. There's more more and more stuff and it's becoming harder and harder to just write off as like a joke or or completely ignore it. I think it's something that we're going to have to grapple with because by the time April comes around at this pace like every major director in Hollywood is going to have a project there yeah. I remember when we first brought this up. Chris like just dismissed it outright and always saying how there's the potential here with like short-term content to do like kind of like these cliffhanger kind of like short-form episodes. They like make you want to you. Come back every day to see the next like little five ten minute did of story and when I think of hangers I think Keith or Sutherland and twenty four so no no. I think this is the marriage-made-in-heaven so let's move and talk to you. Talk About Star Wars Jon Favreau who is producing producing the mandatory in and directing at least one episode of season two has expressed interest in making a New Star Wars Holiday Special the Star Wars holiday special of course is one of the most I guess made fun of whole specials in the history of television. Brad is he joking. Rounders is something he's serious about now. He's definitely serious about it. this is John. Apparently has a fondness for the Star Wars holiday special which is among one of the most mocked and even hated pieces of star wars mythology even more than the prequels for those who don't know the Star Wars Holiday special aired in nineteen seventy eight's It's it's intended to be like a Christmas style program that took place in the Star Wars Universe hours after the events of star wars a new hope if followed Han Solo and Chewbacca as they tried to stay away from the empire and make it back to the wookey home world of Cacique in Eh celebrate a holiday called life day which tobacco hope to spend with his father itchy his wife Malla and his son Lumpy lumpy which is another streaming service. That's coming later this year no but yeah so this special has is so oh revealed that George Lucas never wanted it to be available to anybody after it aired it's never been released officially on DVD or streaming or anything like that because it's such a joke but Jonah ever like I said has a finest war and he would like the opportunity to make a New Star Wars holiday special he doesn't give any specifics civics about you know what he would do but when the topic happened to come up he said quote. I Love The Star Wars holiday special certain sequences more than others but I loved the introduction of Boba Fett A- and that rifle that he had that animated piece still holds up. It's pretty cool and I.

An Interview with Space Historian, Rod Pyle
"Here with our next guest rod pile space historian he's worked with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Johnson Space Center and as written a lot as well he was written for PBS and well you also can involve with Deep Space Nine and Battlestar Galactica say if engine interesting stuff thanks for being with us thanks for having me and it's you know some people would call me a diverse career background person other people would call me a dilettante but yeah I'll check whatever well you can choose how you decide so let's start with what you did and have done for NASA so I had it kind of worked around the edges of that off and on back in that the ninety is mostly doing television production so occasionally we'd cross over into what NASA was doing but I was the car the employee of theirs but then about two thousand nine I got hired to write this really interesting program they wanted an executive training program the partnership between NASA and this group called the copper toward other York so I got together with the guy from IBM and we wrote up this training program and did that for a couple years I was great fun because if you're gonna talk you gonna give people lectures about how great space age was having a standard five behind with the profits but it's cool the gastric salute that was really fun and then finally the on time about two thousand twelve I guess two thousand thirteen I started working for Jeff horse migratory Pasadena on as needed basis writing books and articles for them and that that was really cool because now you're sitting there talking with the guys they call this stuff happens so this guy worked on many relator arm the rover and this guy over here worked on some kind of inflatable antenna system for CubeSats they're just brilliant really dedicated people that are so passionate excited about what they do and of course that that translates into you if you're listening to open hopefully the writing he's on a little bit about Mars making contact and also the blueprint for a battle star Margaret your contact was a cooperative they're both coffee table books in the sense Mars make contact was I'd written two books before the kind of looked over the Mars missions from mostly the American perspective somewhat from the Russian perspectives albeit perspective but they didn't have the kind of like we did so there's much more of an American story there and then as we got about twenty fifteen twenty sixteen won the publishers I work with said you know we really like to look at everybody's projects so that means the United States and Europe and Japan's made the Tampa and and India actually succeeded with their very first try a couple years ago and they want to do a picture book of it so I thought well this is great and actually got paid to do so I got to go hang out the archive your post laboratory and a few other places in big draw the old photos and interview the folks that worked on so forth so it's just really fun kind of a broad look at that basically everything that's happened since about nineteen sixty four four I think all the NSS what's that actual spaces ID at the group the oldest prose base human spaceflight group out there it was actually founded as a wage to organizations that merge one of them was founded by Werner von Braun the father the Saturn five back in nineteen seventy is and then the other group sub group was formed by a guy got to the office of the guiding Jerry o'neill was big the space colonies use a visionary at Princeton so those two groups merged a few years later and form the society so it's just a huge pros based advocacy group they have some political action they do I edit a magazine called ad astra which is a nice splashy quarterly periodical and then we got your the conventions and education programs in stem programs and so forth that you just really good good group of people I listened to I don't know who's a podcast of some broadcast of some kind that you were involved in and it was I learned a lot from it and you talked about whether it would make more sense next to go to the moon again or to try to go to Mars can you talk about the the risk reward present kinds of each of those so this is the longest you want to start a food fight one of the space advocacy groups just an argument going up moreover Mars or vice versa and it's been going on for a long time we've been talking about going to the moon sense Jules Verne wrote about it the eighteen hundreds with talk about going to Mars at least since the nineteen forties one or one about brown started writing seriously about it really before that with the various other visionaries and the question always been you know which ones cheaper wall so we did the moon in the nineteen sixties with their power projects so we know that that's doable and I would say it's behind us but we kind of picked the low hanging fruit there so the question now is what limited budgets and limited frankly attention span with both the public and Congress which one do you pick well Mars program is a very ambitious goal would be very inspiring for people but it could be anywhere from hundreds of billions to by some estimates as much as a trillion dollars and it's a long trip you know by the time you go out do you think there and come back it could be a year and a half two years and we just don't yet quite know enough about the effects of extended space flight on people both in terms of no gravity and also the radiation out there I'm kind of understand it but we need to know more about how to mediate it now to keep her from damaging people so the moon just makes an awful lot of sense in terms of something that's cheaper ball there's a lot of science rewards there there's a lot of training and work we could do towards getting to Mars and probably most importantly as it turns out recently discovered that in the last decade there's a lot of frozen water water on the south for the modem the ice and where you got water you can melt that make rockets you'll need make readable aired you can make drinking water you can go all kinds of stuff there's also metal and glass and some other elements on the moon that are very useful so for every bit of that you find there and can use their or used to go beyond to Mars let's say that's a whole bunch of stuff you don't have to watch in the space so you can use smaller rockets you save money at all just gets much much much easier so for my money the moon the next logical step and plus the the reward of going to Mars is more strictly scientific not so much commercial writing like did there's a possibility at least in a distant fantasy to manufacture on the moon maybe it will be cheaper somehow and you just kick the stuff back to earth and you can have a an earth the type of crowded and dying because of so much industry on a you can have all the industry up there I mean is that a crazy crazy I'm think of a thing or is that at least something you could end that might be a reason to go to the moon well I think that's what the settlement discussion comes and that's one of the things the national space society is very focused on so that you know it's not a fantasy it's doable it's workable we know that we've got everything in place with today's technology if we just get off our behind the bill what separates those founder of Amazon is so keen about he formed a rocket company actually before you on must did the SpaceX based Basil's former tropical blue origin back in two thousand and gives express purpose was to move heavy manufacturing off over do it in space or is not going to hurt anybody allow the plant to heal you go back to it you know like state if you well and give people options to live and work awesome first because there's a lot more resources even the local solar system then there is honor if you just have to go out and get up so this pretty compelling financial argument here and as you know as well as I do when there's a profit to be made suddenly things start moving a lot faster so I think that or on the cusp of right now so wouldn't it be my got would say be prohibitively expensive to manufacture stuff on the moon but that's not the case it doesn't have to be the case the thing is is to make getting there for the first few dozen times less expensive than what we're doing it with the Saturn five back in the nineteen sixties it cost a bundle you know in today's dollars the proper Graham would have been about a hundred and fifty billion under sixty billion she so that was expensive for six landings but nowadays when you have you on must flying as rockets for in some cases virtually a bird or or less than the other commercial providers are in there already cheaper than it was the nineteen sixties and their reusable they fly back to home base robotic we all by themselves and landed the refuelling be used again and Bayless is doing something very similar and other companies trying to get in on the act now you're reducing costs down by be be a factor of ten or alternately a hundred when you start reaching those numbers suddenly going out and doing stuff on the moon it's very affordable makes a lot of sense on the other side of that is once you're there you got these manufactories going your commoditized the stuff they put a price on it so whether it's U. S. government or private industry restore be international sector that matter saying al all by that gallon of liquid oxygen for this many dollars space credit or whatever we call them at that point now you've got a really calm me out there it becomes very much like how the free market works on earth and again but there's money to be made people will go so you in fact have kind of a gold rush out there so it's really not as far fetched as one might think this other minerals out there that it would make it worth any chances oil on the moon the if you gotta have you gonna have I you have animals sorry all rights are you got of the dinosaurs you got to have plant matter all right right sorry sorry to be down there what no but there is there is healing and three which is a form helium that can be very useful for fusion we're still struggling to get to work but if you can get yours no work at what times work a lot of money only now going up there get that stuff you're gonna make a bundle so yeah very

"Name of the episode is. Beyond say galactica. K I don't I don't remember why I'll be quite honest with you. All right. So this whole weekend was the Star Wars celebration took place in Chicago this year. And we got a lot of Star Wars news because of it on Friday. Of course, we got the trailer for the tunnel. We got the title of the new Star Wars movie as well a thousand generations live in you know. The great shot is a tie interceptor. But this is your find flying low to the ground, and it's going to run over Ray, if she doesn't do something she's gonna do. So she's gonna do something. All right. She's going to jump right over it. Sixers jumping into it. It's pretty cool. But this our first footage of the new Star Wars movie opens in December. She's bad ass. And it's called the rise of Skywalker. What does that mean? Nobody knows you won't know until Christmas. And it opens don't speculate you'll just to spend you'll ruin the movie if you do that. But a lot of great footage, and it doesn't spoil anything doesn't give you an idea of what the movie's about Landau is back. We know that move is ever know, he's. He's coughing. No. Oh, there's a course shots of general Leia. Because they're using footage that they did not use in previous movies. And is that the emperor? Seven. Might be the emperor knows. Be be explored. Because at the one of the final shots in the trailer..

"Right. Yeah. He's he's like I find that to be ridiculously lame on the writers part. I mean, that's how easy how easy it is to just simply write a throwaway line hobby. No about this really important. Vital piece piece of information. Oh, I have my sources and then never get back to it. It's like, oh, you know. That's that's really treating your audience with intelligence, not the did very much when I heard that. And I wrote it down as things like come on. You know, that's that's not possible. But then when you start thinking about the actions of the council again, it's almost like there's a sleeper there on the council. It's the only only possibility. And of course, we know that the show doesn't really go far enough that that it's that we're gonna find out that there's that. There's a. A co-conspirator in on this. I'm let's see I will say this. The Noman were saying something to Baltimore that really really rang. True. Your track record so far does not inspire copyrights, which is good because I also noticing that he really is crap as villain that is terrible that whole bit where he like they go. Well, they're going to attack us when when we moved to shuttles and the enforces going. Oh, yeah. They're definitely gonna attack when we moved to the shoulder ball. Well, they're not gonna do that. Because he. All blow up the prisoners. They know you're going to blow them up any wasn't gonna do it. Yes. You were. Yes. You were. He's he's he's caught in the fact that they don't trust me. And then he goes in and easel like begging the council, believe me don't. Do like, wow. This is I mean bolt or is never exactly been the most cunning of villains. He's obviously duplicitous and he's obviously scheming. But this was really his worst. He was really coming off as incompetent third rate at this point. I mean second rate before but he's third now. And I which made me which then I have a big problem with the idea of the brillian the burly Noman actually wanted to go along with him as well as the members of the alliance willing to follow him. Like, why would you follow this idiot? I mean, the moment they would get out. You would think that they would say, you know, your stupid were taking over. I don't know that the enforcers would know it right away. Oh, but I should the no one should have. I really have got to believe that at least a lighter figured it out. My guess is the Noman felt that Baltimore brought at least the piece about the shuttle. And but even there when they went ahead with the plan. I know you know, what it is. I think I think the Noman were counting on the fact that they would take the bridge like bolt or was and when Apollo and starbuck forwarded that then they knew that a dumbest troops would attack. But had they taken the bridge. Maybe they could have stave that off. So maybe that's why you know, they're reassessing the situation on the ground and ball tars not up to that task like the Noman because obviously they know they've been trying to escape and they had no way to get a shuttle so ballpark did bring important information to the the equation. So they could be treating him like a poor resource, but a resource none the less, but yeah, he just he not come off. Well in this episode, and it's a shame because I like, John colic Ohs. Actor guy. But he there's something almost vaudevillian. You know, you expect him to twirl moustache. I gotta tell ya as snickering over his with his victory. You know, who he was reminding me of in this one Dr Smith. Oh, yes. Definitely. I thought the same thing that was it was so Dr Smith. Yeah. So it was. Yeah. It was not not good has. He always been that bad. I mean, I don't think so but vain said Wade swayed by flattery. Mhm cowardly obviously, greedy for power slimy. Slimy L, but he was he was very slimy in the pilot.

"Well, we were given here, and I will give Apollo this. I've seen the way you look at me. You could you could be stay on. I don't know you. I'd have to get to know you first before I could say, I mean, good answer. Apollo good emulate is I'm not being sarcastic. And it's it's the truth. Like, I don't I'm not starbuck. I'm not the guy that hops on every space babe that throws herself. At me. I'm looking for somebody that I got a connection with and good good on him. Again. I mean apart from his high handed attitude in the first part of this episode. Apollo is always the voice of morality and reason in this show. I don't know that I have anything else with regards to the episode. I'm looking my nuts. I really don't. Oh, one little thing that just really kind of for me that I didn't understand what the point of that all was. And maybe this was totally accidental. But when Becker is taking Apollo to the field where the the landing field were the virus are yes at what is he's crashing into all those containers. And you hear Apollo yelling, you'll idea drive-by era. And all I could think of was was that deliberate. And why? This darn good question. I feel that was purely accidental, but they but four Ray Bolger just could not drive that thing to save his life those vehicles, you know, that they make for these shows are notoriously not friendly difficult to steer you know. They're they're made for their looks not. So it's possible it would depend whether or not that's a dubbed over line or not. And I don't know. I think it was watching us enough. Yeah. It felt like a voice over line. So I was thinking the, you know, Ray Bolger could just not control it heinous crashing into it. And the director producer like us saw this. We'll just keep the footage of Adeline in there. Yeah. It could be it could be I have one. I will go ahead and any anything last. Nope. That's pretty much it. I have one more question that just occurred to me so Cassiopeia came in on an airless ship starbuck and Apollo came in on their individual fighters, presumably when they're done with their mission starbuck and Apollo are gonna get back into their one seat. Single Pytor, fighter pilots fighters and fly back to the galactica. How does Cassiopeia get off the planet if they don't capture an eastern alliance destroyer thing, they did in this case, isn't it? Yes. Yes. It is. Because I guess is. Okay. Well, we just have to Paul but back to the galactica, then grab another ships. We can pick her up. We'll come back with a shuttle. Yeah. Yeah. Me it's still shuttle to Michael and still the shuttle should come back to parodying because they need to go down in those archives. I get the information. And yet, you're no they're not gonna do it the slides. All right. Okay. We know what the next episode is off the top of our heads. I just saw last night. And I don't remember the name of it. Oh, remember, I don't think it's it's not the last episode. No, no, nothing. Any means. No. It isn't. I'm looking up right now if I could find the dog on saying. Would be ball tars escape. Oh, yes.

"It could have been a long long long way away in another direction. It could have even been the opposite direction of the galactica. They are just following up on a report of a spacecraft that had left lunar seven was on its way to parodying. So it wasn't it wasn't anywhere in their patrol route. And it wasn't anywhere that they were willing to go and for that ship. He didn't care. He said, well, you know, catch it later on our patrol somewhere. It was it was a ways away from that ship. So they burned up star speed to get there. They burn up the glass, but but if range of three wasn't very far away from parody in which it couldn't have been because it didn't take long to get there. Then the galactic is not far away from parody. That's true because I doubt very much that ranger three flew faster than the glower with this ragtag fleet. So couldn't have. So it's okay. So that that that is fairly good. I. Have a problem with the fact that it was able to find the galactica? I it was just a little observation about how the ship was nearly out of fuel. Yeah. So they get their first taste of a battle star giant that giant ship in that line. We says we are the most technologically advanced batch fleet in in the guy said and Starbucks like and or. Fight me. That's like that's say, I believe, that's what's so encouraging. It was a good line on his. So the last piece of this equation. Is that Michael and Sarah are not a couple. This bothered me so much. I this is definitely the time. Philip. But so Michael, and Sarah, not a couple Michael is a basically a hired hand who is who is engaged by Sarah's father to help Sarah escape with her kids. And then as payment for that Michael gets to escape to with his daughter. So they're not a couple and now they've landed on this planet, and I almost feel like Sarah thought that the deal was that she has to shack up with him. Right. I I kinda got that feeling that that was part of the deal. And now that she's here in her father's dead. I'm not sure I can deal with that. Like, you must have been thinking it or you wouldn't have come to that will now I'm not so sure about this whole, right? It has been on our mind and let you see she can't she can't love a man who loves him, some technology. You see? She's a lead ite. Yeah. All that take her name is her name. Is Sarah, Sarah, Mary, Shelley say, sir show on technology just has led to all this bad stuff. And it's I'm little politics for a damn it. Yeah. And then and Michael is like surely, you realize it's not the technology. It's what we do with it. That's the problem, which is very being, you know, a very salient point on his part. But so she decides to will first off she seems to have no problem with Hector and vector. No. We're about as technology is it gets. But she won't let the kids. See pictures of Tara. Nope. 'cause I wouldn't want them to see this this this place, but she couldn't put them to bed and let Pol and starbuck and Cassiopeia see pictures of Tara or inner she's I don't want this here. Apollo you. Take the laser disc and take it back with you or or anything. And then you have the archive which they get nothing out of the archive. Right. Ryan out couldn't they bring the fleet over to the planet and co down and get the stuff out of the archive, but I'm willing to bet we never see parodying again, probably not person. Anyway, she she just raised the vipers. So that Apollo hollow to stay because, you know, I don't know if I can shack up with Michael, but I'm really grooving your colonial high tech lifestyle. You got going there? I've. Seen the way. You look at me. I could not believe that line..

"It was. They really don't get much to do in this episode, and they're just mostly spend their time kind of you know, that scene in in Monty python and the only grail where at swamp castle were served. I think it's LANCELOT. Yeah. I think it's her LANCELOT MacOS in charge until the rescue charging together slam scene. Whereas like Donald on on the girl. He's just recycling. The same little bit of running of ten feet or something like that. They're felt like that's what the eastern alliance was doing throughout this entire episode. It's sorta was wasn't it. Yeah. They were just they were killing some time. It's like here. Come the big baddies here. Come the big baddies baddies are coming. Oh thread. Here comes the big bad. Oh my God. They're here. And we're just gonna have to jump off the roof. Knock him out pump through the door point a gun at him. And problem solve you guys are crap Nazis. I expect our Nazis to be put up a good fight because they may be evil and have skulls on their caps and stuff, but they could fight you guess, it's. Yeah. Into eastern alliance gets hold of you'll you'll be in big trouble. You have never seen about you. And it got regretted most of them. I mean. Okay. So. Yeah. Comment on of coming up on lighter. I think. Yeah. I think it was lighter. Right. I mean, Germany. Yeah. Exactly. At least his accent was very soft. But the I'm going to say, I think it's the pilot of the ship. I mean, it was y'all a German accent? Wow. And I thought this it was like what was I supposed to take away from this? Okay. But wait a minute now tear might be earth in which case the eastern alliance is probably east Germany, Russia and all that stuff so via block literally blouse what they were trying to achieve. I mean, that's that is I think what they were trying to get the audience to believe. Right. And and it and this is what I do like about it. It's the fact, oh, we've known you a little turf ball Tara. Well that is a word for. Earth and these talk, minutes and seconds. And so maybe this is but instead we never get that answer. No and starbuck goes into the city. He he goes with Hector we wanna look around. Maybe there's some records. Maybe we could find out stuff is a huge city. Oh, you wanted to go to the archive? No, you can't get to the arkan-. It's where there's no air there's already air. But yet he's in there for hours apparently. But got plenty of strength of bang affi-. But, but isn't it lucky that somewhere down the line, the one neighbor who survived cowhand? Yeah. Happens to used to be the guy that worked down in this building. Yeah. And convenient, and so they can cut down that hours journey to get back out of the Bill. This like why? Why why did we this ABC's prime time nineteen seventy nine television now? So let's see I think the last major throw will. So the they captured it because the vipers destroyed more on that the few moments. They take the eastern lions cruiser, and they fly it back to the galactic which must be close enough will. So how do they find the galactica? How do they good question? How long would it take the eastern lions ship? I mean, I guess it can't take too terribly long because the the rate got there. But so we also know that when.

Don't get to do that unless they put on nappies, which you know, like they did a NASA for the Apollo missions. You're wearing diapers. And these long range patrols seem like they ought to come up that problem too. Oh, that's right up. There was saying, you know, how can we really haven't? Seen a toilet in Star Trek. But in galactica, we have a called it a turbo flush. I don't even remember it. I we didn't see it. But they definitely called a toilet a turbo flush at some point. That's their term for it. So they do they do have them. But yes, all these people arrive on the flat. Ignoring the logistics of that. And they arrive at the quote, unquote land mass up ahead is the line. It will. Mess. Up ahead. It's coming from that landmass up ahead. Do you mean planet starbuck? Oh, yeah. I guess so it's see here in this galaxy. Get to parodying. It's lovely place.

"Of my life. Something marvelous has happened here. Gentlemen, do not let it pass unnoticed. I don't understand what I'm saying. He has reaffirmed. We are race worth saving. That is an interesting. It's again, I love it. It's a fabulous line. It's a fabulous line, especially when you're talking to the boob incompetent council of the twelve. Yeah. But if Dom doesn't think you have to be a little cynical to make that line, right? You have to you have to say if you're feeling that your faith has been restored. They yes, you have to have a cynical point of view at that before it is spoken. So does that mean that basically he thought well, you know, why am I bothering to lead this fleet of people and in some ways, why is he bothering to lead this fleet of people? I mean, they are willing to dump him at every turn. You know, some guy comes along and says, I'll give you a food. We'll follow you county. Yeah. You know, they don't appreciate what he does for them. They don't appreciate the protection. They don't appreciate leadership. They don't they don't respect him know that own and the decisions that they make not just the council, but the people are decisions that he shouldn't respect their the decisions of idiots, and you know, the galactic do a whole hell of a lot better by itself without the fleet. That's true. It could I mean, and the only reason it's and this is the other point that I I was kind of hinting at in terms of their their search for earth because it's something that I was reminded of the galactic can only goes fast as it slows ship. And there are a lot of just near derelict ships that are probably just crawling one would almost say ragtag. Yeah. So it has to be going really slow. So to take this back with everything that that poor Adama has. Has. Yeah. The Adama could just say, you know, to hell with all of you guys. I'm off and then just dart across space. They could get whatever the heck they won in record time. And and and certainly have no headache at that point with the politicians. But the problem is Dhamma is one of those people. He's a moralist the moralists. You can't just leave those civilians behind no matter. How stupid they are? Yeah. Yeah. It's a little bit. And it does and your point does raise a nother terrible. Terrible question. Why couldn't I know? It's all about reinforcements. Right. But why couldn't the silence get twelve thirteen fourteen bay stars out there their battleships presumably calling to the galactica in speed? They're not at least a fleet. Why couldn't all target a whole fleet of bay stars to come out there and take them on? Oh, they can beat us three two one. Okay. We have twelve bay stars and keep in mind. That the galactica will be mostly playing defense. Yup. As opposed to offense an all after this pick off a whole bunch of little ships. Anyway, I mean, they're trying to eliminate trying to eliminate human. So just the civilian charts is just as a target is as the galactica. Yep. So yeah, another stupid bit to the the the way that they structure the show. But we did hear the mention haven't seen silence for quite some time now. No. And there has been that. There was a discussion or something in the logs about why we haven't decided to settle on one of those planets, which is question. We've asked along the way much say not technologically advanced enough, apparently or they you know thought. Well, yeah, none of technologically advanced little call any worlds, but they're all habitable he could've put people down on them. Yeah. And but they wouldn't be able to defend themselves in case of a silent attack and still can so in the silence come along to those planets that have Hugh. In colonies on them settlements. They're dead to galactic is leaving those people to die on the way. Because they've they've brought them. They're suing the silence or following them. Then they're bringing the silence to these planets and the silence will wipe them out. And then off off they go..

Had just finished a masterful complete work on Star Trek the TV show and the, movie series this time he turns his attention to battle star galactica and it's called so say we all the. Complete, uncensored unauthorized history. Of battle star galactica Mark Altman how well I, remember that TV show yeah I'll tell you I. Think that here we are forty, years later, and it's something that people still remember really fondly and, I think that's why we, you know, after we did Star Trek and Buffy with slayers vampires it was kind of like you know is there another story to tell where the story hasn't, been well told that you know people actually care about, and it immediately dawned on us that you know galactica would be celebrating his. Anniversary and I it's such a fascinating story, because the, two shows could not, be more different and yet they're. Both wonderful and their own you. Know. Have their own distinct Measures so you know for us that was no brainer to revisit battle star galactica new book so say we all would there have, been a galactica without Star Wars because I know it, hit ABC right after the Star Wars craze that's a great question I mean. You know Mark Hamill jokes that galactica should, have been, called battle star copycat You know we was sued by FOX and Lucasfilm, for infringing on the Star Wars copyrights but you. Know I think we talked about this in the book star way yes it made it possible to do the. Show on television and certainly encouraged ABC to program a. Big epic space opera but if you. Look at the, show it's really a western, and it's a story about family and I it's not a Star Wars rip off. At all, even though John Dykstra who. Did the effects for Star Wars was involved in Ralph, mcquarry. Designed all the spaceships so there are elements that are redolent of Star Wars galactic is definitely its. Own unique show and, of course that concept of these. Aliens the survivors of an interstellar. Genocide who are, trying to find earth as a sanctuary you know he's such a novel. Concept it's it's really unique in the annals of science fiction television so I tend to to to to not subscribe to the whole idea. To Star Wars rip. Off and, if it, is it's a lot more than that Mark Altman is with us He's. The co author of soci- we all, the complete uncensored on authorized oral history a battle star galactica I'm, glad you mentioned that it is kind of a. Space western and I guess that's why Lorne Greene was so comfortable in the role yeah he couldn't have been. More comfortable you know I mean here we have the. Starve bonanza playing another patriarch of another. Family and there's, a great story someone tells, them to book where these kids come up to him at a dodger game for. His autograph, and he looks at them. And he goes bonanza and the kids shake their head, now. Because oh well balanced our galactica right and he goes the shake their heads no and he goes. Well what do you, want my autograph for and they. Go out though you know Wanted him. Because, he was the, face, of Alpo dog food so that that's? Gotta be gotta crush your, man Vigo If he were still alive I'd want his autograph because of his hit single Ringo which nobody remembers I absolutely and you know Lauren green I think that show a lot of gravitas you know he brought. A lot, and what was wonderful and talking to the cast is. How much, they truly loved him you know a lot of times the stars of these iconic series you know you start, to? Talk. To people and they're saying, all these awful things and it sort of destroys your, childhood right yeah Lorne Greene to a fault everyone, just said, that he was such a sweet and wonderful man who really was everything you'd want number one on the call. Sheet to, be that's always read that about him he I think. He and, I think that's because of his old school Hollywood upbringing he knew it was the business he knew it was, show? Business Because he. Was an old school radio man. You know well that too yeah I mean you know that's true he. Started. A. News broadcast on the radio in in Canada invented the backwards clock yeah, yeah the backward running stop watch which for. Those of us in the business we all know we, have to back time you need to know how much time you have left not what's what's moving forward in the time that we have left Mark Altman a? Little about the reboot, about all star galactica was that disappointing to some fans I. Think, you know he went through the same evolution that a Star Trek yet ironically. We're when they announced, the next generation fan said without Kirk Spock and McCoy you don't have me and it took a. While for certain original. Series fans to warm up to the new Star. Trek and, eventually they did I think it was the same thing with galactic I mean you had people like. Richard hatch who'd been who were very anti the remake or the reimagined nation and eventually many, of them did warm up today because they realized it was, a different show and it was great in its own on its, own, merits but? It, was very. Diff Much darker much edgier it was much more product. Of. Its. Time and completely different than the original show but I think to this, day there still are some galactica fans that. You know having embraced it and they just can't get, past the memories of of of their childhood or but you know I personally must huge fan of both I think they both have marriage I think that you? Can enjoy both in, this whole idea of pitting shows against each other and the. Gladiatorial, arena you know I it doesn't serve them well I mean I'm just happy. That both exists to, be honest and we're talking to Mark Altman who has written so say we all the complete uncensored. On authorized oral history. Of battle star galactica on NewsRadio one thousand Katie. Okay and, Mark getting back to the comparisons with Star Wars I I often look back on Star Wars and. Movies of that period and TV shows of that period realizing they didn't have digital effects that, didn't have CGI were some of the effects used on the, small screen version of battle Star galactica borrowed. From. Lucasfilm's well you know that's a really good question because. I'll, tell you something when they hired John Dykstra who just come off his Star Wars revolutionized visual effects. And now here was a guy who using a lot of the same literally the same equipment to create the visual effects for Glaxy guy and now when you talk to him. And Richard, edlund they actually feel. That some of their effects work, on galactica was better than what, they did on Star. Wars because they set a learned star was was the cutting, edge by the time they got the galactica they took the lessons of Star Wars and applied it to galactica and it's true I. Mean there is, no CG so a lot of. People say, oh my God by episode sixteen it's all stock footage it's all stuff we've already seen of the ships blowing up but that's. Because it was so time consuming to create using miniatures and and and and optical composite ING motion capture. Do these, effects but I mean some of those miniatures are gorgeous. I mean I, don't think there's a better looking ship other than, the starship enterprise in the, battle star galactica in the nineteen seventy eight here's in that at. The, time cost, fifty thousand dollars that miniature the shows were million dollars an episode I mean there was a lot of man being lavished, on it and. In fact we talk a lot about the influence Star Wars not only in the book but we do podcast called the fourth Thirty movie. And it, talks about what you said the impact of Star Wars on shows.

The schedule bears Bengals bears battle star galactica watch Star Trek instead? Yeah I I'm sorry I even. I can't find much so one of the biggest story is roquan Smith not being there That's rough Does he just sit out the whole year in the draft that hasn't? Happened now it's happened kind. Of indirectly when Bo Jackson just didn't show up for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and then necessarily was available in the draft the next year and the raiders took a flyer and. Bogart intrigued but I'd be shocked if Smith sits out the. Whole year but I think, right now both sides are adopting the. The universal your move posture with the arms folded waiting to see if the other, side, blanks meanwhile valuable practice time and preseason time Evaporating that would allow Smith to be ready to go when the regular season begins for. The bears. All right. Quick break one return question of, the day which player do you most want to? See tonight we will share the best input that we receive.

This more vigilant than you need for this. Hey. Tonight, name name come on. Charms podcasting, anyway, some sitting on decipher and I'm watching crimes. Watching TV. I'm watching sky one and a new TV show started the first episode it's gone on and I watched the first episode of the show, and at the end of the episode of the show. Yeah, whatever most the next one and that show was the west. I'll tell you something else came around on. Bassel star galactica. This is also true, but let me finish the west, the west wing thing, genuine. I don't know what was wrong with me. I can only assume I was ever slightly mentally damaged from having been out of work. Basically sitting on my arse playing Nintendo sixty four for the better part of fifteen months and nine hundred ninety nine heavy just wants to two minutes months prior, which was true. Yeah. Why just didn't didn't didn't. And then I watched it again to say it's now my favorite thing in the whole world watched the mini series. And again, I had the same thing. I thought, well, this is some straight to video Sifi shit. And of course you watch. It's fucking brilliant. I don't know what was wrong with me. Literally, I asked you if I should watch it and you're like, this. Known since I mean thirty three, which they hadn't made it that was demonstrably better, but even the mini series is very. So I genuinely all I can say is from now on, if you ever read an empire view that has my pile on it, really just ignore it just off, don't don't pay any attention to anything. I say completely untrustworthy. Yeah. Seems kind of TV shows have gone back on, but I have gone back in a couple of films sometimes for good sometimes for ill. One is John wick recent.
