"Relationship between art and the artist? The artist goes through how a lot of times, to produce his art, and not knowing what's going to come out to you. And first year of dying in 1940, there were two stacks of The Great Gatsby in the script and a warehouse. And it wasn't that it was out of print just there was no demand at all. And Fitzgerald got a $5 royalty check. The year he died. For all his books, so here's this great American writer who basically died in obscurity, broke, yet he is one of our greatest American writers today, regardless of greatest. And of course, his books sell. So, you know, I think what people should take away from it is that there is the artist and every time you had a great quote where he said, the most disease oyster, the best pearl. And I think that's very true with a lot of artists that they do go through how to create their art. And it's a work of faith. And so for a writer today who produces a novel, it doesn't go anywhere. Fitzgerald knew he knew he'd written something great. He knew it in his bones. And did he know that it would come back the way it did? Probably not. But I think he knew that it would find its way because it was good. And it did. And to the point where today, you know, 50 million copies later, it is just regarded. And I would have to say in regard to more than Hemingway as the final statement on the American Dream. Well, this adds a lot of nuance to a story that many people have come across whether through high school literature classes or their own reading and gives us a better sense of how consciously writers can take elements of their life, put it into a story. And your book in the spirit of Fitzgerald is also very readable. I enjoyed it. And for listeners who want to check it out, the name of it is writing Gatsby, the real story of the writing of the greatest American novel. William, thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me.

Trish Looks Back at the Stock Market Crash of 1929

"Well, interestingly enough. As you went through the years prior to the crash of 1929, you know, those really happy giddy days, 1920s, think The Great Gatsby and all that. Well, that was all about a lot of money in the system. Times were good and the fed was printing. And then, in 1929, is the bottom sort of fell out from under, and everybody came up with this realization that the party just couldn't continue indefinitely. You had a course that really, really bad market day. The great crash, October 24th, 1929, what do you know? We just passed that anniversary known as black Thursday. It was the day the largest sell off of shares in U.S. history on a percentage basis. So what did the Federal Reserve bankers think was worthwhile to do at that time? Take money out of circulation. Like that made sense, right? The market's plunging. You're going into a major economic challenge. Really, that was the beginning of The Great Depression, and these brilliant academics over at the Central Bank, they decide to take money out of circulation, something that Milton Friedman was very famous for criticizing. In fact, some have also argued, and I'm of this belief that the Federal Reserve actually contributed to having that big market sell off back on October, October 24th, 1929. Because they were the ones that were printing all the money, making everything. So easy, right? Easy, money's not easy. Earning money is not easy. Money doesn't grow on trees. And yet, when you create an environment where you print so much money, putting that much Cass into the system, things may seem good for a little while, but eventually going to pay the price. And that's exactly what happened in 1929. So these brilliant, you know, academics decided, well, we're going to take all the money out, right? Because all that money supply that, that created the problem. So now we're just going to take it out. And so they decreased the M two, the money supply. Significantly massively, and by taking all that money out of circulation, they ensured an even greater crisis. So

The New Movie 'Elvis' Is an Oscars Shoo-In

"Kind of tell you guys, I saw the Elvis movie. Damn, was that a good movie? You know, the director baz luhrmann has a very stylized way of making movies. If you saw the famous one he did, I mean, you know, Romeo and Juliet, moulin rouge, Gatsby, he has a certain way of making movies, even though Australia, which wasn't my favorite kind of movie. It definitely has a certain look to it that you can't mistake. It's like, you know, when you hear a certain guitar player, you can tell if it's Aerosmith, you can tell if it's The Rolling Stones, YouTube, you can hear slash them all away, you can hear, you know, Keith Richards in my way. Same thing with bosler and you always know when you're watching one of his movies. But I'll tell you, Elvis, the movie just built and built and built. It kept getting quicker and quicker and quicker until not no spoilers here. Elvis develops a drug, a pill habit, and, you know, he starts to lose, lose it, and just an amazing, amazing portrayal by Austin butler, this guy was born to play Elvis role, music was great. They even like patched in like some rap ish music into Elvis songs or I can't explain it. They took the old, the music of down south, you know, the black music, the gospel songs and infused it with some contemporary singers from today, and it really sounded amazing. Austin butler's gorgeous. I don't think Elvis had eyes that blue, but the weird thing is the way Tom Hanks plays colonel Parker, you might find that odd 'cause he has this accent he used it. I always thought colonel Parker was like a southern gentleman kind of guy. You know, like, I just assumed he was that guy. Even though he did live down there, he had this Dutch accent apparently. And it was a Dutch accent that I've learned he used that also had the hottest speech impediment, so Tom Hanks really went out of his way with prosthetics you can't believe. You can't believe it's Tom Hanks. The accent, the prosthetics, the acting, there's no question he's going to be up for best actor. I've even put Austin butler up as well from the same movie. It's that good.

Why Trump Routinely Dominates Straw Polls Like the Recent CPAC One

"At the recent cpac conference in Dallas, which concluded this weekend there was a straw poll. And the results of the straw poll reported pretty widely in the media. Trump 69%, this is for 2024. Desantis 23% and pretty tellingly, Cruz 2% Pompeo, Nikki Haley, Rand Paul, Kristi Noem all 1%, and by the way, notice who's not there. Mike Pence 0%. Wow. Now, I want to try to explain the Trump phenomenon here because there are some people who say and I've been seeing this on social media that desantis is much more kind of error free than Trump. Desantis doesn't make Trump's mistakes. He is very effective as Trump is in hitting back at the media. They both have that kind of fortitude, but desantis is less ad hominem, desantis is in some ways certainly in terms of his personal life. He seems unbelievably clean, caught, he's got the sort of perfect resume. So why is it? Why is it then that Trump is consistently not just ahead, but way ahead? I mean, Trump is over two thirds of the vote. And desantis is desantis numbers only improve if you take Trump out of the equation. So what's going on here? Well, I want to try to explain this in an unusual way. The writer Scott Fitzgerald, this is the author, of course, of The Great Gatsby and a number of other important books. Scott Fitzgerald, once said something very poignant and I think very illuminating. He said, he said, I've got the two second best things to have. But I don't have the two best things to have. And he went on to explain that the second best things to have in his view were good looks and intelligence and Scott Fitzgerald goes, I got those two. But he goes, but the two best things to have are animal magnetism, animal magnetism, and money.

Charlie Takes Listeners Back in Time to February 2020

"I want to ask this question, which is, who do we think we're dealing with? Let's go back in the time machine. You kind of think back to a time when we thought we were going to win massively. I remember being at Mar-a-Lago, producer Andrew was there with me for one of the book launch parties for the maga doctrine. If my memory serves me correctly, this was in late February of 2020 and oh times were good. It's kind of the beginning of the tale of two cities. It was the best of times and yet it was the worst of times. It was the best of times because it felt like it was the best of times. It was the worst of times because we didn't quite realize what was happening under the surface. There was a subterranean risk that was emerging. You see, we were at Mar-a-Lago and hier Bolsonaro was there. It was Kimberly Guilfoyle's birthday. The good times were flowing. Tucker Carlson was there. It was a who's who of a typical winter, Saturday evening, at Mar-a-Lago. But I would say some people were there were a couple people Tucker in particular. Tucker was there actually to warn Trump. About COVID. Ahead of the curve is always saying you better take this seriously because this could end up being a massive risk to your presidency. The economy was great. We were exporting oil, the border was largely secure. We weren't involving ourselves in foreign entanglements. Our enemies feared us, our Friends respected us. Times were great. And I remember that evening at Mar-a-Lago, higher Bolsonaro was there, the birthday parties, the times were flowing. It felt like The Great Gatsby all over again. It was the roaring 20s you could say. In February of 2020, they were talking about inauguration plans for the coming January. There was a cockiness that almost permeated the air. There was an attitude that we got this. There is nothing they can throw at us. We're the incumbent president, the economy's fabulous, they're going to nominate either a socialist or a dementia filled candidate, the mainstream media was even writing stories saying Trump will be very difficult to beat. And then everything changed.

Following Jesus Is About What You Give, Not What You Get

"Judas thought that following Jesus was about what he was going to get. So he went out and said to them what will you give me? She understood that following Jesus was about what she was able to give. That's why you see missionary biographies have always had the impact that they've had. Sadly, many of them have fallen into the catalog lists of out of print tales of another era. And one of the things that might be done is the on air thing of many of these old stories and good books so that the heroes of the past might become contemporary for a new generation. So that, for example, CT stud who gave up a fortune that was his by inheritance and went off to Africa with the story of the good news, his father had been converted. As a result of the visit of moody and sankey, his father was phenomenally wealthy and stud when at Cambridge, he played cricket for England, he was, it was far better than The Great Gatsby. That's where he lived. That was his whole experience. And he actually turned his back on all of that in order to go to Africa, but he gave away his fortune and kept some bite for his wife. His wife found out about it. She was really angry because he had given her a little poem. She was supposed to say in the morning with her devotion. She was supposed to say, dear lord Jesus, you are, to me, dearer than Charlie ever could be. He wanted her to understand that so that when he died, she would know that her best friend was Jesus. And she said, why do you keep all that money back for me? He said, well, I wanted you to be okay. She said, do you think that Jesus can only look after you? And he can't look after me, give my part away as well. And so they gave it to they gave it to general booth of the Salvation army. At what was the kingdom logic? Here it goes. This is CT stud. If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice that I could ever make for him could ever be too great.

Still october night took her because he had no real right to touch your hand despite himself free. It's certainly taking her under false pretenses. I don't mean that.

He had no comfortable family standing behind him and he was liable at whim of in impersonal government to be blown anywhere around the world but he didn't despise himself and it didn't turn out as he had imagined he had intended probably to take what he could and go but now he found that he had committed himself to the following of grail.

The wicker of the setif squeak fashionably. She turned toward him and he kissed her curious in lovely mouth. She caught a cold. Innate had made her voice husky and more charming than ever and gatsby was overwhelmingly aware of the youth in mystery that wealth in prisons in preserves of the freshness of many clothes and of daisy gleaming silver safe in proud above the struggles of the poor.

"Welcome to the memory palace. Summer reading usually this time of year i slip a couple of reruns into the feed decided this summer instead to try something different and i have been reading the great gatsby in this is the third and final part with music from mary. Lattimore an art from jen karachi new episodes of the memory palace. We'll be back in early. September chapter seven was when curiosity gatsby was at its highest at the lights in. His house failed to go on one saturday night. In as obscurely as it had begun. His career is traumatic over only gradually. Did i become aware that the automobiles which turned expectantly into his drive state for just a minute and then drove sulky away. Wondering if you are sick. I went over to find out. Unfamiliar butler with a villainous face at me suspiciously from the door as mr gatsby sick. Nope after pause he added sir into dilatory grudging way. Hadn't seen around. And i was rather worried telling. Mr caraway came over who he demanded rudely caraway caraway. Alright tell him abruptly. He slammed the door. My fin informed me that gatsby dismissed every servant and his house week ago and replaced them with half a dozen others who never went into west village to be bribed by the tradesmen but ordered moderate supplies over the telephone. The grocery boy reported that the kitchen looked like a pigsty. And the general opinion the village is that the new people weren't servants at all. Next eight gatsby called me in the phone going away. I acquired nolde sport. I hear you're fired all your servants. I wanted somebody wouldn't gossip days. He comes over quite often in the afternoons. So the whole caravanseries had fallen in like a card house in the disapproval. Inter is there are some people will shine. Wanted to do something for their all brothers and sisters these two smaller tell you see. He was calling up daisies request. But i come to lunch at her house tomorrow. Ms baker wouldn't be there half an hour later. Daisy herself telephoned and seem relieved to find that i was coming. Something was up and yet it can believe that they would choose this occasion for seen especially for the rather seeing the gatsby at outlined in the garden. The next day was broiling almost last certainly the warmest summer train emerged from the tunnel into sunlight. Only the hot whistles of the national biscuit company broke the simmering hush at noon the streets of the car hovered on the edge of combustion. The woman next to me perspire delicately for awhile into her white shirt west and then as they're newspapers dampened under her fingers laps despairingly into deep heat. With a desolate. Cry her pocket but slapped the floor. She gasped. I picked it up with a weary bend and handed it back to her holding it. At arm's length and by the extreme tip of corners to indicate that i had no designs upon it but everyone nearby including the woman suspected me just the same so the conductor too familiar faces. Some weather. hot hot so hot enough for you. is it hot. Visit my commutation ticket came back to me with the dark stained from his hand that anyone should care in this heat whose flesh lips he kissed. Whose head may damp the pajama park over his heart. Through the hall of the buchanan's house blew a faint wind carrying the sound of the telephone bailout to speed me as we waited at the door..

"Chapter one in my younger and more vulnerable years. My father gave me some advice. That i've been turning over in my head ever since whenever you feel like criticizing anyone he told me. Just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had he didn't say anymore but we've always been unusually communicative in a reserved way and understood that integrate deal more than that in consequence. I'm inclined to reserve all judgments a habit that has opened up many curious. Nature's to me and also made me. The victim of a few veteran bores. The abnormal mind is quick to detect in attach itself to this quality when it appears in normal person and so it came about that in college. I was an unjustly accused of being a politician because i was privy to the secret griefs of wild unknown men. Most of the confidences were unsought frequently. I have feigned sleep. Preoccupation or a hostile levity. When i realized by some unmistakable sign that an intimate revelation was quivering on the horizon for the intimate revelations of young men or at least the terms in which they express them are usually plagiarism. Stick in marred by obvious suppressions. Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope. I am still a little afraid of missing something. If i forget that as my father snobbish suggested and i- snobbery repeated a sense of the fundamental decencies is parceled out unequally at birth and after boasting this way of my tolerance. I come to the admission that it has a limit. Conduct may be founded on the hard rock or the wet marshes but after a certain point. I don't care what it's founded on. When it came back from the east last autumn. I felt that. I wanted the world to be in uniform. Net is sort of moral attention forever. I wanted no more riotous excursions with privileged glimpses into the human heart. Only gatsby the man who gives his name to this book was exempt from my reaction gatsby. Who represented everything for which. I have unaffected. Scorn personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures than there was something gorgeous about him some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life as if he were related to one of those intricate machines.

You've had so For a couple of months now. But i started my career about a goodness a decade ago. Now and i started actually in the federal government not as a software developer but as a program manager and it was my dream job. And i was really excited about it and i worked there for two and a half years and i hated absolutely every second of it it was just terrible fit for me so bad so there's sort of two things that made it so bad. I was bored. Okay that was one piece but to is. I had a mathematics background in a minor in computer science. I was getting my master's in computer science while i was there and the federal government. Does this funny thing where they try and make the workforce looks smaller than it is Politics and the way that they do that is that they hire a bunch of contractors to do all of this work and that's super frequent in the technical states and so they have government employees which is like federal civilians. Which is what i was. An our job is to manage the contract of the people doing the work and okay so it was just a really bad fit for. I don't care about cost schedule and performance really at all of computer and let me do something. I didn't get all this education for nothing. When i decided i was gonna leave. I didn't think i had the chops to be a fulltime coder. I was like oh get. Some technical analysts hybrid kind of job. And i talked to internship bosses that i'd had and other sort of family connections which i'm very grateful for and they were all Gobi junior and i did and i was a consultant at a couple of different places over the course of seven years. And when you're a consultant you see so many things and you work all over the stack and with all sorts of different technologies and so. Let me sort of figure out what i liked.

The Great Gatsby

"In nineteen twenty five. F scott fitzgerald published the great gatsby and like pretty much every author. He copyrighted the book when it came out which you know fair enough the way copyright worked at the time fitzgerald and his heirs could collect royalties from the book for fifty six years. All the way until nineteen eighty-one and during that time if anybody wanted to make movie or play or anything at all based on gatsby they would have to get permission and probably pay a licensing fee to the fitzgerald family. And then according to the law after the fifty six years the book would go into something called the public domain fitzgerald's kids or grandkids wouldn't get royalties any more and more importantly anyone who wanted to could print up and give away copies of the book or rewrite it from toms horses. Point of view or create gatsby on ice anything at all and you know copyright. Is this balancing. Act on the one hand you want to encourage and reward people who write books create things but you also want to let those things enter the public domain at some point so we can all share them and tweak them and build on them and make more creative stuff. The artists figuring out how long to keep something in copyright there was nothing special about fifty six years. That's just a number that congress picked and then they decided to change it in nineteen seventy six just five years before the great gatsby entered the public domain. Five years before gatsby on ice congress changed copyright law. They said among other things fifty six years not quite long enough under the new stronger rules. Gatsby wouldn't go into the public domain until two thousand one and then just a few years before that congress jumped in again and made copies of old works last even longer under the new new rules. Gas would not go into the public domain until almost one hundred years after it was written until twenty twenty one but still sounds like some meat up year from the future to me. And you know congress could have kept pushing this date making the copyright longer and longer until the three thousand or something like that but there's been some pushback on the ever lengthening copyright period. Not enough pushback to start making the copyright shorter but enough to stop making them longer and so on january first of this year. Finally the great gatsby went into the public domain into our domain. It belongs to us now. It belongs to everybody. And what we now own i have to say is a complicated book. It has the romance and beauty of america. It also has the racism and misogyny and anti semitism of america and maybe the most american thing about the It's all about money. This is a book about why people want money and what they do when they get it and what money does to them. In other words. Gatsby is the perfect story for planet money and now that gets me is in the public domain. If we wanted to we could talk about it for a minute at the beginning of the show. Yeah say hello and welcome to planet money sticking ahead break in and then we could read the whole thing. We could read the entire book the entire book and posted on our podcast.

"To make as well so let's first just talk about products surface area. Sure so free co camp is really three different core applications. There's the curriculum and. Portfolios? That's one of the pillars. And that is all custom code part. That's when we say the platform nationally what we're talking about we also have. A free co Camp Dot Org Slash News, which is our publication and published several articles today they're often in-depth explanatory journalism about technology. Then we have the free forum, and that's the third pillar of Free Co camp now. All three of those run on separate servers, the free cocaine forum is powered by discourse, which is a really cool self hosted open source form tool created by the founder of flow. Jeff Atwood in his. And that's very well maintained, and you can get your own discourse running really easily if you want to. You can just deploy to the cloud, and it'll live on its own server in docker container, and there you go. Same thing with free. Co Camp Dot org slash news that is running on ghost, which is another self hosted open source project that just released version three of their tool, and it's like wordpress, but it doesn't have a lot of the baggage that comes with wordpress. wordpress is excellent. But it does have some vulnerabilities in it does have. A very complicated plugin system in wordpress is trying to do a lot of things whereas ghost is just trying to be. A publication tool. So we have maybe. Seven thousand articles on. Free Co powder slash news at this point and we have. Hundreds of thousands of posts on free cochem dot org slash. So those are those who now if you want, I can drill into what powers the frequent camp platform the core curriculum. Please do yeah, so we are running. React on the front end. We're running known. As the back end were running a tool called loop. which is. An API tool. It essentially turns your rap into an API where all the routes. Can, confess chase on as well they shemale. It's something that's already baked into tools like ruby on rails like with ron rails. You take any euro. You could just put dot Jason at the end of it and get a Jason Representation of that of the data in that route so. Does a lot of that stuff. We ease Mogadishu for database and we have managed cluster. On 'em lab and we're working on moving that over to Mugabe's new atlas tool. Atlas. 'EM! Lab was acquired by Manga to be recently, so they're kind of sunsetting 'em lab. I think so. We're in the process of moving everything over. To have a big sharded system because we have a lot of data. We've got millions of records, and each of those records has these of challenge completions. And a whole lot of other data that they've added to their portfolio and the portfolios themselves were working on growing them, and making them a lot richer in terms of just having a lot more data like you can submit a whole different projects you've built from. Outside of the Free Co curriculum as well if you built your own. Jobs script game for example you could submit that and turn that into a kind of like a Lincoln light four developers, so we're working on that the platform itself in terms of the curriculum. Is. A gatsby APP and you hit that. Euro Free Co Camp Dot org slash learn and the entire curriculum loads. And it stays in your browser. It. Of Challenges, and then when you complete challenges, it will post those to the server, and if you disconnect from the server for some reason, you can keep completing challenges than when you reconnected a push that back up to free Co camp servers, so we're very close to having be fully offline.

Everything from handbags to but that's not the only tariff threat trump's made this week so today we're going to get into why the US is threatening tariffs on France why it's bringing Argentina and Brazil into the mix too and how these tariffs are part of a broader story about about US trade wars under president trump. Let's start with what else a glass of champagne. This isn't the first time trump's targeted European luxury goods back in October. He unveiled tariffs on Scotch Parmesan cheese and basically anything. That's already too expensive at whole foods that was in response to Europe illegally subsidizing European plane maker Airbus and hurting. US based Boeing in the process.

I mean I've heard you say on occasion is is that a fair as a statement to make absolutely yes. Yeah and and there's so much here Chris I don't want to jump too far ahead of myself but you know just going through your filmography and you know there's tons that I've mentioned but there's also work that you've had I haven't heard it interviews but you've I think you've contributor on like World War Z.. The Great Gatsby life of Pi. How does that work? Paul you just have a little bit of an influence. You do some work in that film and you're not like the leading editor. Hugs that work. Why why aren't you credited for the same way you weren't some of your other works right? Well h film is an individual case so but usually it's. It's a picture that the studio for whatever reason has some concerns about and They they say would you mind either looking at it and giving US notes and would you mind coming in for a few weeks or it's phrased you know differently but there comes a point where frequently that's On a picture even working for many months at the director and the editor and maybe even the studio executives the producers sort of what I call snow. Snow blind no not sure what they're looking at anymore because it's been working on it so long. They don't have objected to take on. What's there and any light to bring it? Excuse me like bring in what they called fresh eyes and sometimes just watching picture giving notes and sometimes sometimes it's actually sitting down and doing a version So that's how you know And then I find that Not taking credit is a way to make my suggestions more tolerable eligible that. I'm not trying to hog credit from someone yet. It makes sense to me. Yeah you know so that. The suggestions go down uneasily could easily because they're often as genuine efforts to help. I have a question down the road that steps on this topic. But I'll ask you now because it's just it's it's appropriate at this point. Do you find that studio executives as time goes by our. I don't WanNa say the word meddling because that's has a negative connotation to it but you find that their involvement is more were. The work should probably be left to those in the creative process. Director writer editor is is it. Is it more intrusive as time goes by Paul Well I'll say this that the most successful films that I've worked on. I've been the product of my collaboration with the director. Essentially just the two of us Making decisions incisions about the cat. Now that's well said and and you know I wanNA talk a little bit about your early life so you grew up in Paris. How many years were you in Paris for Paul? I was in Paris as a child for about four years. Now are you do you still can you. Are you fluent in French. Can you still speak it as something. You influence fluence. My accent is very good. I'm fluid to the degree washing. Sam Fluent I. I always impress french-speakers but equality. My accent hurry I hasten to tell them that might calculator is very small and and I don't have a real facility. Use it sound them. But I'm sure if I went over there and spent two or three Munson Johnson total immersion. I'd I'd get back to where I had been. You know when I was eight years old so I have the vocabulary of an eight year old child but you know I think I think if I stayed there pick it up you know. Yeah that's certainly flew in my book and then you were at your dad's a painter and I have to believe you get some of his his eye for things in art history major. You're the second art history major I've had and I think what two weeks which ages which is telling because I feel history major. Paul she was. She's a costume designer urine editor. I feel like history majoring in history. GIVES YOU LA. This supreme I for details. Is that kind of going overboard or do you think there's something to that. I really don't know One way or the other. I'm an art. I was an art history. Major not major distinction there right as she the average she she was also an art history major so it was like yeah she go ahead. I'm sorry but in my case as an art history major you spend a lot of times looking and yet projected images in dark rooms and critiquing them so I was sort of being prepared for a lifetime of work. Doing just that although I wound up doing moving images instead of still ones but I think my background is was useful in terms of developing an aesthetic about the elements of life of a style in visual arts. And there are many qualities that you you know you you try to achieve whether it's you know Symmetry your balance or a brace or certain a set of qualities that he strived for that are not necessarily only in visual arts. To 'cause I majored in music in high school I went to High School of Music and art and so my work in film. I find that very closely tied to my feelings about music for for me. Music is an essential elements of my work in terms of making presentations whether it's to the director to the public or whatever music than essential ingredient in what I'm doing yes well said you know. People that are listening to this. podcast cast many see editors and they think they know what it editor's job is but many times it's a teen involvement many times. You're working claburn as you mentioned with a director. How would you? What's your cliff notes? Version of what editor is for those listening in probably aren't sure exactly what it is. How would you define an editor's job? Well I can read to you from the introduction to my book which is essentially a chapter devoted to answering exactly that question but No I I have to say I have ordered on Amazon and I did read an excerpt I think it was on entertainment magazine. Entertainment Weekly Weekly. It was a really beautiful excerpt they printed and people said some really nice things anymore. Campbell talkie movies are made in the editing room and so much of your book I want to get into. It's really an amazing. It's an amazing story. Your life is there's been so much to it you are our consensually. What the editor is doing is putting together? The experience that the audience is GonNa have and everything that's done on a film the writers the actors cinematographers the production designers. The costume designers the makeup people. Here people everything the all their work is Toward one end an s to provide the editor with raw materials. Everything they do do is in service of the cut and the editor takes everything that they have done and uses it to bill. It'll be experienced the audiences. Yeah and do you find as you because you've been so effective for so long. I mean that's a testament to your abilities. Do you find that much of your. Your work is is is with the directors. You find that a lot of it is I know George had faith in you clearly Brian has yes. I had faith you clearly. Do you find that typical or is it. Not Typical of of the job varies as much as human beings very Taylor. Is there ever a time. Where director says you know what I completely trust? You have at it and and do what you have to do or as a director always kind of in some way have to monitor the process like I said everyone's different Are Comfortable having having any drive in some of the likely take the real themselves you know so it varies from person to

Memory foam, orthopedic beds for pets are a thing now

"Pinch decent, David Guinness. Here's the CEO and founder of tweeted dog, welcome. Thank you for having me on very nice to have you. And first of all your company's called tweeted, and everyone that's listening all the pet parents friends like pets thinking about pets. This is for your pet. It's not for you. But I would like a long one for me. I've likened people. But before we get into what we're talking about his, hey, a little cliffhangers always got even if it's only for like five minutes, or so let's talk about I love the sense of humor. Your company has okay. Your company's called treated dog. Most of your products are memory foam, beds and car cover, and I might as missing anything. No. I would say, you know, we we have quite a few lines. But our flagship and the lines we take the most pride in are definitely going to have to be our memory foam, Arthur beds, and our travel collection. Yeah. That's correct. Okay. So before we talk about your pod up. We were talking about I mentioned the sense of humor your company has. So I've had many many many men in companies on best bets for pets. And I'm always interested when they say about us thinking, you know, because it's radio and not everybody not all of our guests. Our actual studio. Now, he's. Wonder so what do they look like so on you said you have an about us page, but there's all dogs. So I'm thinking. It's the crew, you know, which one is David's dogs, which one is somebody else on the crew. See I'm Gatsby Zoe Gus Mike an ala right, right? So that is similar to your crew over there. Okay. So they're all your testers. Yeah. So these are our dog that coming go there, some employees some of our product distributors. So they all have their own purpose here treated offense. So I thought I'd make them a little section for the website because they're very important that you know, they help us with all our products. Definitely I liked the title like L A does I think graphic design? So. That would be Mikey, Mikey. Okay. Mike. He is actually one of our graphic designers. But we decided to give him the name of the dog Russ that comes through here and hangs out. So so that is my care graphic designer portrayed by Ross. Okay. Got it. Yeah. But that's a good. You know, anytime a company has a good sense, a gamer, and what talking pats, you know, have. Pat's now. Okay. I agree. Everyone loves at its light hearted. And and we try to keep that kind of feeling here in the office. Okay. Now, you companies called treaty dog. Where did you come up with that name? No most people they hear that. They think oh it's about treats and all that kind of stuff, but you actually have these wonderful memory foam beds that totally pampers and your pooch loves them. And on my crew the cats too. So where did you come up with? Treat a dog came kind of in a brainstorming session when we started the company about five years ago, one of my business partners. You know, we are thinking how could we say something about giving dogs everything they need? And the first thing that came to her head was treated dog. You know, you wanna treat a dog with love you wanna treat it with respect you on a treat it with care. So it's kind of an all encompassing. Name not only talks about treats. Which is another thing. I really love. But we just liked the name that it kind of fully embodies how you should take care of your dog. And it's up to you how you treat it. So that's how on a treat a dog was born. I love the name, and you touched on some really important things. And when you think about tweeting your dog, and let's talk about your products, yet memory foam, beds are not match. I think of memory foam, I think of mattresses these are like kind of dot com. Way. Yeah. Yeah. They are. So just as human mattresses as you mentioned, they're the same grades, same quality. But they obviously had seen designed specifically for your dog. So the memory foam line that we carry as I mentioned, we're very proud of it. And I'd have to say it's most flagship of aligned that we we have we create our beds to be really durable to really fit nicely into your decor. But most importantly to be very comfortable. We think all dogs should have this really nice comfortable bed. So that's kind of what we look towards one. We create any new bed at a

Hannah Gadsby's Nanette adds pathos to comedy

"Say very quickly. If you haven't seen Hannah Gatsby a net, Annette flex, go watch it. Go check it out on admit, I put it on a week or so ago, watch the first five or ten minutes and then got caught up with work and wasn't feeling particularly compelled to come back to it just based on that opening. But then I kept reading. People were saying, including our own writers wired, you have to go watch this. You have to watch the so I finished it and to call it a comedy special is a little bit of a mischaracterization because it's not entirely comedy. It really has this amazing nuance and depth to it, and it really reaches this very emotional crescendo where. Gadsby really reveals a lot about some of the traumas it for past and speak openly about some of the basically like socio sort of political issues that we're all dealing with today and social issues really. And and it's just a, it's a, it's a heavy watch, but it's it's good. You should watch it. That's my watch comedians in cars, getting coffee, Jerry Seinfeld thing. I've seen a couple. I don't watch it regularly. There's an episode from this recent season where he, he's talking about young comics and young comment audiences. They want that peso's they want in in their comedy special. They want that sock in the gut, and he's like, but when you play the people who are like thirty five and older and they've got kids and you've got mortgages and they're on their second marriage, they're like, you know what? I'm fine the pay. Those just make me laugh. Yeah, I think it's it depends on what mood urine. Like if you might feel like watching Michelle wolf one night and then another night you're going to watch Ninette and it's going to be a totally different experience. But I actually think it's really wonderful that this comedy genre, especially this one hour special is being redefined in some
