One of those rules One matter of those rules so much. matter so much. The answer reveals The answer something reveals about something a giant about nation, a giant its nation, past its past and its possible and its future. possible future. NPR's Lauren NPR's Lauren Frayer begins at one of the markets in western India. Yeah, I like all day. So this is a wholesale market and sort of a dusty lot between looks like warehouses here. Yes, Yes. This is far. Good skunk. Oh, yeah, Wholesale agent, but this is all regulated by the government. Yes, they're appointed by the government. They're being market fees can vote How is showing me around his local wholesale market, one of thousands run by the government where Indian farmers sell their crops in auction. Takes bids for eggplants trucks disgorge bales of collie flower wave through waist high piles of green beans. These markets were set up in the 19 sixties in India's Green revolution. When the government started subsidizing pesticides and irrigation. It helped boost yields and made India self sufficient in food. It did not lift many farmers themselves out of poverty. My father has not much educated Lord Howe comes from a long line of grain farmers. The average Indian farm is about 2.5 acres. These are not big commercial farms like in the American West, and with climate change, mechanization and rampant development, not to mention the pandemic. Indian farmers are struggling load houses at our place. Water is not Copper supplies water. Not there. That's right. That's water as much as when you go. So exactly exactly exactly lot off problem is that the production costs off. Traditional farming is going higher day by day, so the help the Indian government passed three new laws last year they aimed to deregulate the way produces bought and sold. Wholesalers and grocery chains no longer have to buy it. These government run markets they could do deals directly with farms. Many farmers are not happy, though, because you know Agriculture prizes are subject to a lot of volatility. Economists seem a bad lawyer says farmers got used to selling of these government run markets, which guarantee them a minimum price. So it's a safety net for the farmers. When prices go down, the government says it will still set prices for certain crops, and it's not closing these markets just adding more options. But Sanjay Cohade is still worried. Ginger Allah Miggy. Eventually he's a middle man who buys from farmers here. He says he's worried big corporations will circumvent these markets and obliterate small traders like him. As we chat, another man interrupts. We have brought up Narendra Modi's. You will be the King of World nine innings, and this is basically what's happened with the farm laws. It's all devolved into political arguments. Agriculture reform has long been the third rail of Indian politics. Successive governments avoided it. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to do it now on a national scale. The rules have always varied by state and by crop economist giant ego says mode. I made a mistake by not explaining this well. The amazing thing is that the more the government passed these laws in the middle of a pandemic. They just quickly passed it without any discussion. You could have gone to people talked about it Godfrey back because these are long term proposals proposals now laws that affect the approximately 800 million Indians who depend on farming for a living. There's been a lot of confusion. Farmers here in Western India don't have the same concerns as in the north of the country, but that didn what model? Is it? Me getting shit carry those air. The rich farmers from the north you see protest, Ng says a tomato farmer here named um, but a sun up. He's got nine family members to feed. He can't afford to take a day off to protest. The protests have been dominated by farmers from northern India, the country's bread basket. They grow mostly grain and rely on government markets. More than a tomato farmer like sun up who can sell out of the back of his truck. Northern farmers see these laws is the first step toward dismantling all the aid they've gotten since the Green Revolution. Including price guarantees for wheat, rice and 20 other crops. I'm your bony I mean about me, but not for my tomatoes. Sun up, says he's never been eligible for the price guarantees that wheat growers get a majority of India's farmers or not. Meanwhile, farmers in several states are already circumventing these government wholesale markets and have been for years well, These conveyor belts are moving quickly. This produce packing collective started more than a decade ago, when eight farmers banded together. Now it has a sprawling campus. It's co owned by more than 10,000 farmers. This is the man on I think Chambers Banana ripening chamber. This collective bypasses government wholesalers and sells directly to stores. The last Shin Dae is the founder. Market is ready to pay me back better place then I should capture that market is rapper Depending on government. He says he got fed up waiting decades for government reforms, so he took matters into his own hands and started this collective. For others, the pandemic has forced them to consider new ways of selling their produce. So these air your grapes here's yes. Yes, grandfather and then grape farmer Abby shake shall kisses. His harvest came right when government run wholesale markets closed last year because of Cove. It Actually long known there was opportunity. So he and his friends all farmers in their twenties who've gone to college, started selling on Twitter and got more for their produce. Abby Shake says his heart is with his fellow farmers who've been pro testing even if they don't share all the same concerns. His head, he says, is on how to solve some of the inefficiencies he sees in the way his forefathers have long done business and he doesn't really trust the government to do it when I'm just out to get the amulet and the mighty by it guys out the causal Calabrese.

The answer reveals something about a giant nation, its past and its possible future. NPR's Lauren Frayer begins at one of the markets in western India. Yeah, I like. Okay, So this is a wholesale market and sort of a dusty lot between looks like warehouses here. Yes. Yes. This is good, Skunk. Oh, yeah, Wholesale agent, but this is all regulated by the government. Yes, they're appointed by the government. They're paying market fees can vote How is showing me around his local wholesale market, one of thousands run by the government where Indian farmers sell their crops Auction. Takes bids for eggplants trucks disgorge bales of collie flower wave through waist high piles of green beans. These markets were set up in the 19 sixties in India's Green revolution. When the government started subsidizing pesticides and irrigation. It helped boost yields and made India self sufficient in food. But it did not lift many farmers themselves out of poverty. My father has not much educated Lord Howe comes from a long line of grain farmers. The average Indian farm is about 2.5 acres. These are not big commercial farms like in the American West, and with climate change, mechanization and rampant development, not to mention the pandemic. Indian farmers are struggling load houses at our place. Water is not Report supplies water, Not there that much water as much as when you go. So exactly exactly exactly lot of problem is that the production cost off. Traditional farming is going higher day by day, so the help the Indian government passed three new laws last year they aimed to deregulate the way produces bought and sold. Wholesalers and grocery chains no longer have to buy it. These government run markets they could do deals directly with farms. Many farmers are not happy, though, because you know Agriculture prices are subject to a lot of volatility. Economists seem a bad lawyer says farmers got used to selling of these government run markets, which guarantee them a minimum price. So it's a safety net for the farmers. When prices go down, the government says it will still set prices for certain crops, and it's not closing these markets just adding more options. That son Jake Ohad is still worried. Ginger Allah Miggy. Eventually he's a middle man who buys from farmers here. Don't he says he's worried big corporations will circumvent these markets and obliterate small traders like him. As we chat. Another man interrupts. We're proud of you will be the King of World Niners, and this is basically what's happened with the farm laws. It's all devolved into political arguments. Agriculture reform has long been the third rail of Indian politics. Successive governments avoided it. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to do it now on a national scale. The rules have always varied by state and by crop economist giant ego says mode. I made a mistake by not explaining this well. The amazing thing is that the more the government passed these laws in the middle of a pandemic. They just quickly passed it without any discussion. You could have gone to people talked about it Godfrey back because these are long term proposals proposals now laws that affect the approximately 800 million Indians who depend on farming for a living. There's been a lot of confusion. Farmers here in Western India don't have the same concerns as in the north of the country that they moved more delicious than me getting shit carry those air. The rich farmers from the north you see protest, Ng says a tomato farmer here named um, but a sun up. He's got nine family members to feed. He can't afford to take a day off to protest. The protests have been dominated by farmers from northern India, the country's bread basket. They grow mostly grain and rely on government markets. More than a tomato farmer like sun up who can sell out of the back of his truck. Northern farmers see these laws is the first step toward dismantling all the aid they've gotten since the Green Revolution. Including price guarantees for wheat, rice and 20 other crops. I'm your bony I mean, bony, but not for my tomatoes. Sun Up, says he's never been eligible for the price guarantees that wheat growers get a majority of India's farmers or not. Meanwhile, farmers in several states are already circumventing these government wholesale markets and have been for years well, These conveyor belts are moving quickly. This produce packing collective started more than a decade ago, when eight farmers banded together. Now it has a sprawling campus. It's co owned by more than 10,000 farmers. This is the banana, I think Chambers Banana ripening chamber. This collective bypasses government wholesalers and sells directly to stores. Villas. Shin Dae is the founder market is ready to pay me back. Better place then I should capture that market is Roper. Depending on government. He says he got fed up waiting decades for government reforms, so he took matters into his own hands and started this collective. For others, the pandemic has forced them to consider new ways of selling their produce. So these air your grapes Here's yes. If grandfather and great farmer Abby shake shall kisses. His harvest came right when government run wholesale markets closed last year because of Cove, it actually opportunity, so he and his friends all farmers in their twenties who'd gone to college, started selling on Twitter and got more for their produce. Bobby Shake, says his heart is with his fellow farmers who've been protesting even if they don't share all the same concerns. His head, he says, is on how to solve some of the inefficiencies he sees in the way his forefathers have long done business and he doesn't really trust the government to do it. When I'm just out to get the amulet and no I did buy it guys off the coast of Calabrese. I think our generation is going to have to try to figure this out, he says. Lauren Frayer NPR news in Nash IQ.

The future of the gig economy
"Yes we know that president biden new. Well what he was in for but it has still got to be tough when first thing on your first full day. The labor market pokes you right in the eye. It's thursday so today was weekly. Unemployment claims day. Nine hundred thousand people asked for state unemployment assistance for the first time. That is down just a little bit from a week ago. So good but still monumentally high and then claims for the newly reinstated federal program for gig workers shot up more than forty eight percent. Nearly four hundred twenty four thousand people lost jobs in the gig economy. The jobs a lot of people turn to when they run out of options. Marketplace's eric embarrass gets is going with that. When last year shutdown started joy tout hurry. An uber driver in new york city was in a bind. There wasn't work. I was struggling to pay my rent as a gig worker shout. Hurry didn't qualify for typical unemployment benefits matt until congress passed. Its first relief package. This latest spike in pandemic unemployment claims is likely linked to the lapse in the program before the last aid package was approved new shutdowns and to the after holidays. Slowdown according to dmitri costas an economist at the university of chicago about a third of the labor force the some work in the gig economy and if more people are relying when gig work. A lot of the risk is on the workers themselves. That's because according to aaron hatton a sociologist at the university of buffalo. We've attached a whole bunch of rights and privileges and opportunities to employment retirement plants. Parental leave health. Insurance unemployment are tied to traditional fulltime jobs. And heidi sure holt. A labor economist at the economic policy institute says that was problematic before but with the pandemic. It's really shown us that the there are gaps in a regular unemployment system that you can drive a truck through. We do have the ability to close them. The existence of this program shows us that we can do it. Josh godfrey in houston. Texas knows this well. His door dash earnings dropped from six hundred to one fifty a week without the temporary gig unemployment benefits. He doesn't know what he would have done. This kind of pushed me to kind of reevaluate. What i'm doing in life. So he's going back to school to get a job that if he does lose. Get unemployment

NBA turns to Microsoft Teams instead of digital cheers
"All right. Pro sports might be back. But right now, you don't find any fans in the stands to compensate Major League baseball's resorted to adding digital fans and cheers to TV broadcasts. Kind of creepy when you started seeing those fan cut outs behind home place, But that's late is the N B, a just resume playing basketball games in its co Godfrey Bubbling Disney world, and they came up with a different idea. Using Microsoft teams. You see, they have this mod called together Move. Up to 300 so fans can be virtually added to the courtside seats, appearing on 17 foot video screens that wrap around all three sides the court so together Mo tries to make everyone feel like they're all sitting in the same room sharing a I and also like looking at different backgrounds, and so now they're gonna do this for basketball fans actually want to look at this. People will appears. If they're sitting next to each other courtside. They can interact with each other. Almost like they're really They're almost looks kind of strange. Uh, but then you start thinking about it. Microsoft might be on to something of this. As long as they don't drop the ball on it.
Nick Saviano from world the renowned Saviano Tennis Academy
"Hi Nick Welcome to the Functional Tennis podcast pleasure to be here. I've been meaning to get you on the show while we have your honor top academies around the world page which is probably one of our most viewed pages on the website. So it's great to of see. We've the Blurb Rebecca Academy and all the details would. It's great to speak to the main mind as well so delighted to chat which tell me how is life at the moment with all this cove? It situation has DECAPA me gone well. Unfortunately we have had to shut the academy down at least temporarily as all the Kaddoumi's in Florida have done and I guess around the World. But we've been able to stay in touch with our players and we are poised and ready to go as soon as they open. Things are coming in the next week or two. So we're pretty excited to get back out on the courts and fully functioning. Well that's great news. You haven't locked all your players in Lake. Rafeh did no. I didn't know he locked them all in but no we have not done that in a lot of our players actually are here with emily members or they're at private housing so we're good to go. He had me. Did Inscribe live with I think was Andy Murray Sane? Whenever they got closed down whoever was stuck there had to stay there. Nobody's lead in or out so he's running a tight ship over there. Well you have to. Whenever you're dealing with. Young people is enormous responsibility. So you always have to err on the side of caution. Yes no true. It's different when you're entrusted by parents to do the best for the kids so I think you're right. It's really important. So tell me a bit of empty Kademi. How long has the KADEMI being an operation? Well I started the academy shortly after leaving the US. Ta at the US was a national coach for boys tennis. I was eventually director coaching for men's tennis for the United States. I played on the tour for nine years and then I was also the head of high performance coaching education which was really actually exciting and then after that when I left I opened the academy in two thousand and three in. I started working with a few players I decided I really wanted to go out on my own and established my own methodology and a lawsuit for coaching and working with young people. So way back then. Two thousand three. That's when we started and it went extremely well and some of the believe it or not some of the first people I was working with were jan-michael Gambill. And also Vince Spadea. And also very young. Eleven year old. Sloan Stevens came a few years later and Jeannie Bouchard and Monica Point Again. A lot of other really good players started evolving or coming. And so it's been really exciting. It's been an amazing experience. Actually over the years up really really enjoyed it. Let's just cut back a bit before the academy and before. Usda tour life. You're a top fifty player. What was it like in the late seventies being a top fifty player? It was an amazing experience. I was one of the top. Juniors in the United States at the end of the year is ranked tree in the country. Then was the top recruit going into college so I wanNA going to Stanford. University was an all American there my freshman and sophomore year. Then I turned pro but back then I was one hundred thirty two in the world when Charon pro took me only four months and I was in the top hundred so the depth and the game wasn't quite the same as it is now so in one respect it was. Let's say less of a long grind to get into the top one hundred but on the other hand the rewards weren't as great nowadays. The players go to phenomenal hotels. They get paid and qualifying. The money is great. I remember I got around sixteen. At Wimbledon twice and the specific number I remember was four thousand pounds now. Four THOUSAND POUNDS. That probably is about seven or eight thousand dollars. Not even that much and today. I'm not sure what the guys in the gals paid for a fourth-round let's say Wimbledon. But I would suspect it's probably in the two hundred thousand range so money has changed a lot but it's more than just the money the quality of the way everything runs on the tour the ability to communicate with people. You know you have the phones. You have computers when I was playing. We didn't have cell phones. Believe it or not so completely different world when you went away for six weeks you really were far away. It was tough to get phone calls back with your families and so is a different way of life back then than it is now and I enjoyed it. I love playing the Grand Slams but I retired at twenty eight years old. I spent about eight and a half years on the tour and when I retired I was still in the top hundred for singles and doubles. I was recently married and we had our first child and when my first child was born. Nicole our daughter that was it. I said I'm done and I'm going to get a head start on the rest of my career which turned out to be coaching. Those a good decision and tell me what was your most memorable match. Great question one of the most memorable matches I ever had was in England. At Wimbledon I was playing a match against Pat Dupre. Who was a semi-finalist the year before and I believe at the time was ranch around twelve in the world and the day before I played buster macho from England and he was number one British player and I remember having served to save the match five or six times so I one nine seven in the fifth set and so I had to come out the next day and play again against Patty pray and this match was in cold fog long match and I remember my body aching and wound up winning at one. Twelve ten in the fifth set and I remember just kind of overcoming the exhaustion and at ten all eleven ten. I was ahead and I finally got a break point and I remembered to this day thinking okay. Should I go for this and ripped return because you know I just can't seem to break and this is one opportunity so I cheated thinking he was going to hit back in he did and I happened to hit it? Just right and boom. It was a winner and thank goodness over. I had a couple long matches. In Wimbledon at one with Brian Godfrey four in the world and that took either three or four days to complete believe it or not and I was down two sets to love and five two and it was almost nine o'clock at night the US keepers. Were all there waiting to the targets of the courts. So they're waiting for me to lose so I was down two point quickly. Want Upholding Sur. Five three and I played one of the best games of my life. Five four I bright serve. I hold sir. I break him and win the set then because we were there late. They didn't put me on I the next day and so they had a women's match on it rained a lot that day so that was a Friday. We only got like five games in so then pushed us over till Saturday but of course we were onto cords till very late again and so they didn't put us on ride again so we wound up playing one set and then it got dark again and then of course Sunday play so then we have to wait and then on Monday morning we played. We've finished the match and it had a happy ending. I one six one fits so those were my two good memories of Wimbledon long matches that stood out.
How RAIN Pivoted to Become a Pioneer in Voice and Conversational AI
"Joined wind rain actually as a consultant and that was a favor to nick and I think coming in that way was important because I really had an opportunity as you understand rain and its assets with a fresh perspective and you know not to mention the fact that everyone loves dish out dirty laundry to a consultant Especially when they're not part of the company and that information gathering was really valuable especially when I ultimately joined a CEO. Because I went into this is wide open at the time that that I joined rain. As Nick mentioned in twenty sixteen rain was doing many things in the technology space website mobile applications and voice was one of them but it really wasn't the focus it was just a small sliver of the business and at the time voice was very much being led by our technology teams somewhat in a silo and it wasn't being approached approach as a holistic strategy creative in tech solution the way that we offer it today there were just so many early indications that voice was going to be ubiquitous rain and had a very unique right to win in this space through our own technology capabilities and relationships but particularly with some of the early traction. We had with the big platform players namely Amazon. Initially at that time so very quickly after joining the company we made the decision to double down to the completely voice. Ai That that was three years ago and we haven't really looked back. And I really believe that that pivot and the ability to be hyperfocused has allowed us to stay ahead of the carbon really maintain income of our advantage in this space. Now what are some of the successes and challenges that making this pivot and to voice has brought to your agency all-star with a challenge. I think think for me as kind of an operational logistic guy him into a brand new space especially innovation has been tricky right so in our previous iteration were building a lot of websites and when I'm building a website I knew it takes about four or five meetings. Close the deal. I the approximate price point. You know of of building a website would be x one hundred thousand dollars. I knew that it would take me X.. Amount of months and I would make up to eighty percent margin when we're in the invasion baker especially building voice experienced. A lot of the things we're doing is we're doing that for the first time. So there's a lot. More education involve or spot. More meeting you'll cycle is longer we're having to get different stakeholders on board. More budgets aren't as clear as they were in the past. Sometimes they come from an innovation group. Sometimes they come from brands. PNL really figuring out how that sweet spot of how to get. The work started how to execute the war how to service our clients. Efficiently has been challenging. Everything we do we do it for the first time. That's been one of the biggest challenges you know on the success side and I'll let you chime in as well you know. We had at agency in our previous existence full of people that came to work at rain digital latitude. We had graphic designers copywriters we strategies we have project managers and we still have a lot of those roles by all those roles. Change Change fundamentally if you're a designer rain in two thousand sixteen well. What does that mean for us? When you now working at a voice company and not an adage dining website and it's been really amazing to watch people involved? I evolve the probably the biggest success I would say the core executive team you bet rain and and down from the top has really evolved. They've evolved their skill sets befall their approach accepting new challenges that playing in a space. That's it's been you and for the most part. A lot of people accepted this with open arms and they become experts in a field. That three or more years ago wasn't even really on their radar so watching the watching people skill sets change has been really exciting.
"godfrey" Discussed on News Radio 920 AM
"Good to Godfrey's with Justin on the ground zero so glad to have her on board especially with this newly discovered tablet Indonesia some forty three thousand years old and it depicts what thirty drops it bit depicts a half man half beast on a hunt with some other men so are we to believe then that means either it is an overactive imagination or it is an illustration of some sort of metaphor or they literally came in contact with these types of beings I mean what do you think it is sh that's the sixty four million dollar question you know it's it's so hard to know what what I've really come to feel over this you know twenty twenty three twenty five years is that when people talk about seeing a werewolf they could be talking about seeing several different things which to me implies that you know it it's it's a favorite form that things that one look like us may take and there are the ones that I called the the regular which is in big parentheses the regular dog man which I'm not remarkably similar in the contemporary sightings of today were people are likely most likely to see them either on a forest trail or they're driving along and it pops out of the ditch your the woods in the water and gave perceived that it's walking on its hind legs but in every other way it looks like a canine acts like a canine except it seems to be one step beyond them be on the humid in its interests in the sand I never saw an animal look at me like that before it makes eye contact sometimes they feel they're getting semi telepathic messages just simple feelings like it's telling them I could jump on your car if I want to watch so it's it's normal but yet not quite normal and I don't know if you put it in the supernatural or the or the via any of the other categories that we mentioned but guesstimate probably ninety percent of sightings that I get are like that but then you get things that are bigger they have shoulders and hands which canines don't have they may have a shredder two of clothing on the model that rare they have in some cases regular feet rather than walking and they tell pads as normal dogs to do and these I think belong more to what people call a shape shifter skinwalker that kind of thing where some sort of human has found a way or to either physically change himself or to project in a certain form of itself right that received as as this other thing and I actually observed a little bit of this and in one case I don't want to get to work far afield I'll just quickly mentioned before I I talk about that I've also had people reporting to me in greater numbers what they call shadow wolves are shadow dogs which look like giant black Hollins of some kind they're usually silhouetted against the woods or something where they stand out and they usually quite big compared to even regular large dog sightings and when that creatures turned the people observe that they're two dimension top the it's almost as if part of the the back part of the was stuck to his a line drawn between the two dimensional and three dimensional so you at that and then there are these bigger ones and I just finally named and I've been trying to pour over that he puts on the men think what they are they're they're larger they they don't look exactly like dire dogs they're bigger than dire excuse me dire wolves they they're bigger than dire wolves were and they have but they have the same massive head with the crunching Johnson and they don't normally lock on their hind legs at all so I finally called is dire dogs I don't know what they are they seem to be all natural but it is hard to say so you've got these different categories and there are a few others others to I won't get into the whole thing but so that it makes it really hard to answer the question because I I believe there's more than one answer and I don't know how much time you have I have it a short story about still time I spent with a native American medicine woman at her home in another state and I saw her begin to change part of her eyes really well I tell you when we when we say this story we're gonna take a break because we are we're going up to breaking you realize that we are and everything and I was just you know I was about to tell you something before we go to break and that is we had a guest on awhile back talk about sleep disorders sleep paralysis and talked about nightmares and apparently there seems to be a lot of nightmares lately about large dogs with glowing red eyes they they he calls in the devil dogs they had double dog dreams and and and apparently people waken from these devil dog dreams of their paralyzed and they can hear these devil dogs breathing heavily sniffing around and did you hear the little positive heather.

Meet Gilbert Gottfried's sidekick Frank Santopadre
"I have Frank Santa Padre. He is the co host of Gilbert, Godfrey's, amazing colossal podcast. This happens to be my favorite podcast aside from talking tech. Of course, a great place to get a lot of laps in stories about old Hollywood. And Frank one thing that I find really fascinating about your show. Is it sounds like you're interviewing people person to person, but many times, you're not correct? Or you're talking about the long distance broke up. How do you do that? What we do is. Well, we we originally we were doing Skype interviews, you know, when you're doing a show about old Hollywood a lot of people, especially retired people where where people in their sixties seventies and eighties live in Los Angeles. And we do the show out of New York. So that necessitated long distance and actions, we started doing them but phone calls, we realized that down very good. So we moved to Skype, but then the Skype audio would let you down because you would dependent on on the bandwidth, and and all kinds of other factors. So we decided to record people on the west coast. And then record our end, obviously on the east coast. And then our engineer mixes the two so really you get a seamless result. It sounds like we're in same room. So how do you do this does the person go to a studio and then you're negative air? They go to air will studios are our parent company partner, our partner, if you're wolf has a a studio in Hollywood. So they'll go there. And there's an engineer there. To record them. Sometimes we go to someone's home. If they're not in LA, we we recorded Robert Wagner last night. And he's an Aspen. So we dispatched an engineer to him at his house. And then they send us the audio files and our engineer Frank mixes the to file until it sounds like we're all together. How do you hear them? Over Skype hookup. Okay. Yeah. There's there's a there's a a camera. So we can see them which makes the interview better obviously, cover the other drawback to phone interviews is there's no I contact or anything you can't pick up social cues. You don't know when to speak when they're speaking. So we see them on a computer screen, and and and we hear them through through the Skype connection. We just don't use that Skype connection for for Finnish audio now when you came up with this concept, you are working with one of the great tech enthusiasts of all time. Gilbert, Godfrey, correct. Oh, there's nobody more technically proficient than Gilbert. And that of course, we're both being facetious. He is very anti tech. Now did he know what you're talking about? Did was it a tough sell mean? Tell me about this. You mean when when when we propose the idea of a podcast, so well, the podcast, and then the idea that you would use Skype to interview people. I I'm pretty sure Jeff that. After two hundred fifty maybe close to four hundred now if you count the Thursday, many episodes, I'm pretty sure he still has no idea. What a podcast is. Confident in that assessment. Yeah. He you know last night we were doing sound checks for five minutes. And the engineer couldn't understand why he couldn't hear Gilbert's voice. And then we realize he never plugged headphone, Jack he doesn't even have to use his cell phone. Tell everybody about the show. How's it doing the shows doing? Well. I mean, we never expected quite honestly this kind of response when we started. It was a large. Yes. It was started really as a labor of love and goof, I mean Gilbert, and I have known each other many years we used to sit on the phone till all hours, laughing about obscure character actors and just kind of arcane stuff that don't we thought only we cared about. When when we had the idea to actually interview some of our heroes. We thought oh, this'll be fun cult thing for a couple of hundred people, and our fellow the we didn't really know it would take off and that seventy five thousand eight thousand people a week would would download it were pleasantly surprised by the reaction and two hundred and fifty shows in. We've made a little name personnel to now. People want to do the show tell everybody about you. Because obviously Gilbert Gottfried has quite a career and from Aladdin to the comedy clubs to problem child. And all the things you guys talk about on the show, but Frank a writer tell everybody about yourself. Well, I've been a comedy writer for God about twenty five years professionally, and I've written everything I wrote for the Muppets I wrote cyber couple of screenplays that were optioned I written a lot of ward shows, I write for the comedy, central gross. I wrote the TV land awards they don't do anymore. Am I ran I wrote for I sort of made my bones writing for other comics and writing for people like Bill Murray, and oh, God all kinds of people joy Behar different people like that. And. And that kind of into into a career writing off show stuff panel what they call panel, which is celebrity talk show. I worked for the Howard Stern show for a while. So I'm kind of a joke writer, you know, writer of of one liner short form comedy award shows

We used my voice doing Hebrew the other day, and we took an old tape, Gilbert, Godfrey doing his rabbi routine AA, and we call the religious show, and I think it worked out great. I, I was laughing. This is one of those real like internet shows. You can't even figure out they could anyone possibly be listening beside us, like it's bunch, don't get it how these all these shows have listeners to this show is Pete like it's a bunch of religious people, quote, unquote, religious people who claim they speak in tongues and all that. Oh, no. Yeah, wasn't. It is now going into the book of numbers and our one year bible study, we pray that you are getting as much out of this bible study as we are.

What I heard was God is going to begin to manifest himself and we're heading for the end of the end time I I would I think I would begin to fast and get on my face before God though, because everyone here all the parisioners we should all start fast, and that's what he's saying.

"godfrey" Discussed on Uncontrolled Airspace: General Aviation Podcast
"Okay, so so Peter supreme was mistaken about sixty ultralights in the nineteen sixties. I'm going to actually stand corrected now about Arthur Godfrey and buzzing the Tita borough tower according to Wikipedia. It was in January nineteen, fifty four that Godfrey buzzed the control tower at teeter airport in his DC three. It says here, I didn't know that part. His ticket was suspended for six months. Godfrey claimed the windy conditions that day required him to turn immediately after takeoff. But in fact, he was peeved with the tower because they would not give him the runway requested. He later recorded a satirical song about the incident called tier borrow tower, rough the to the tune of Wabash cannonball. I said, I think that that news account is wrong. I think it's an error. Okay. How's that? I don't think there's anything that Arthur Godfrey ever expressed peeves about. You use such mild language, true. It could be true. See, I'm old enough that Arthur Godfrey was in the later stages of career when I was a kid. So I was somewhat aware of out there. So he, he channeled his inner maverick. Yes, right. Yeah. That's right. Okay. So you kept trivia quiz number one focus. So yeah, which airport is named after Arthur Godfrey. Oh, I didn't know there was one David. Do you know the answer? Do all right with you. Tell them see if you're see Jeb leader, Ripert Virginia, at least Virginia. And what's it called gone for field? No kidding. I didn't know that. K j. Why? Oh, very cool. Very cool. Is Lee isn't Leesburg one of the three. It's got its own little special carve out because it's not one of the DC three have their own set of rules for the airport. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Is actually something about that here in Wikipedia? It used to be called now it's called Leesburg executive executive. For you? Godfrey owned and referred to on his show as the old cow pasture. It used to be a plaque in the f. b. o. at Leesburg of Arthur Godfrey in talking about the history of the airport and his connection to it, what used to fly there anyway. All right. Well, welcome folks. Uncontrolled airspace. The general aviation podcast, I'm Jack Hodgson, come into you from high atop lookout point in beautiful, Nottingham New Hampshire. And I'm here in our virtual hanger talking to to my very, very good friends about weird aviation things. This is a sign of things to come. All right, I, this is a day where we have a relatively short list of things to talk about, which usually means we're going to run long and that's already shaping up that way because we've just spent the first ten or whatever it is. Fifty minutes is podcast talking about nothing that's on the list. We haven't even started list yet, so that's a good or a bad sign depending on on how you look at these things to good friends here. One of those voices out there is from the air capital of the world which Kansas, Dave hidden David, what's going on. Another day in aviation. It's a, it'd be nice day to go out and practice instrument work. Oh, is it one of those days? What's it like? What's it doing? Well, it's overcast. It was sprinkle a little bit earlier this morning, not hot hard IM say, but close enough that you could get your, you get your spinner in the clouds and have to do the approach, and there's no better preparation for using your instrument ticket pra cross country than going out on a day like today in Iraq. Cussing with approach. Exactly, right. Very cool..
Review: 'The Spy Who Dumped Me'
"Hasn't he thinks a also does ticker, right? Yeah, he has a wonderful, wonderful. Originally Gilbert, Godfrey was supposed to. Busy being. I found it very moving, and surprisingly touching said in the back row weeping for my lost childhood, bring all the things that are no longer available to me, I think is a great family flick. So that's good. I saw the Middleburg film festival had a screening of puzzles. Stowing Kelly MacDonald, right? Yes. And she arrived in town and first of all, I would like to say she's very open about this. She's forty two years old and she looks like she's twenty five, and that's why she is a movie star because I won't tell you how old I am, but I look about thirty years older than that. And it's a nice little. Movie of a of a downtrodden housewife who finds her Mojo doing jigsaw puzzles that she finds a partner and, and you know, it's, it's not exciting. It's not. It's not loud or anything, but it's a nice. It's a, it's a nice coming of age film and don't just Google jigsaw accidentally. Cassava, Papa torture porn totally different than what you. Yes, she is a lovely actress in. We're talking about this the other day. I think it was off Mike, but just some of the things that she's been. She was first in Trainspotting as a child. Essentially, he was the baby on the ceiling. Boardwalk empire. She was in no country for old men. And that's to me because I know she Scottish and beautiful doing the boardwalk empire thing was very hard because she was Irish desires, but the southern Tekere western Texas accent. She had. She might as well been born in Odessa. Here's your own lady bird. How do they do? I don't know. So I'm a big fan and it's it's a lovely movie, and I saw the spy who dumped me the other night because somebody needed to go to that. Kunas and Kate McKinnon, and it's not very good would expect. And Kate McKinnon is squandering her talent. And so I am worried about she is Uber, talented, death, but even I think we all agree and you should never judge a movie on the trailer, and then we saw the trailer. It was like, oh, no, really? And so that you're telling me that my fears are confirmed. They play it like a Saturday Night Live sketch except it's two hours law to our. I wrote this down. It's one hundred sixteen minutes when she's Larry on SNL. I wonder why. I mean, what is it that you Ghostbusters. Needs to develop her own material or work with people who know her to develop stuff for her. That really doesn't have to just take any script. Melissa McCarthy will write her own. Sometimes it's hit or miss, but sometimes hilarious. Even Melissa McCarthy, I was thinking Melissa McCarthy because she needs a new breakout something to get her to the next. She's doing the same thing over and over. Again. It seems to me and Mila Kunis was hilarious. And Ted ten thought was Jerry, so they both can do it, but not this time not time. So here's a reminder and Hornets when she's in town reviews at Washington Post dot com. And I'm arch.
