WandaVision Episode 7 Breakdown
"All right. I was excited about this because as we were texting i was literally going. I knew it. I knew it throughout the whole episode so very satisfying for me and you also knew it. And i can't wait for you to brag on that moment in just a minute but first this week the sitcom style was modern family meets the office and as a fan of both of those shows. I loved it. Wanda was very wanda's parts were were modern family and visions parts. Were the office. So it was like a weird. It seems like it would be weird. But i liked it. It worked for me. So we start with wanda dealing with the aftermath of the halloween episode her expanding the hacks her trying to say vision her dealing with a fake brother and her kids are like really worried about her. They come upstairs trying to figure out what's going on their game. Is glitch ing which shows that things are not completely under control anymore. They're game went from like a week controller to a believe. It was like a dreamcast controller. Who atari and then to just you know playing cards. The kids are like what is happening. Billy tells one that his head hurts. Now that's this is an important moment. Not only because every mutant on the planet. I'm pretty sure that has telepathic. Abilities has at one point in their origin stories. Said it's so noisy in here because they can hear everybody's thoughts until they learn to filter and really kind of controller powers. Jean grey charles exhibitor. They've all dealt with that Yes ashley stay out of my head. No because you won't stay out of mine so anyways that's important to hold onto because it's gonna come into play later. Now they do a whole office montage for the opening credits. And there's a quick shot of a it. Looks like one of those ransom notes where they've cut out a letter from a magazine or newspaper. It says i know what you were doing. Wanda who is that. We don't know. There's also a cute little amish to stanley in the license plate that says wanda and i just kinda hope like i know. We're obviously not getting any more cameras from him. But i would love to see something of his or something that reminds us of him to show up in each of these shows and movies going forward mice personal like i dunno to sense outside. Sword has mustard together and they are preparing for a massive attack on westview. Because once again told you so hayward's bad guy like a really bad guy. He's not even trying to be a good guy right at the recently. Not second he might have announced good enough so told you so. Vision wakes up and he's surrounded by the sword circuit and darcy is inside the circus as the escape artists. So when we last are choose being sucked into the heck's and she was wearing hand she was handcuffed to like the sword vehicle. Well now. She's escape artists but she can easily get out of it. She does not remember. Who vision is. She thinks he's trying to hit on her. She's like hard past dude. I'm like not into you like this is not going to be a thing. Envisions like dude. Don't you remember. We locked eyes. We had a moment you understood me. She's like no and just blocks away from him The boys are wondering where their dad is and wanda says. She can't force him to do anything. So it's again i think. She is finally accepted the fact visions outside of her control
Welcome to Shondaland
"Tonight. We're talking about shonda rhimes. Who is like she's a total boss. Queen television absolutely all right so first. We'll talk a little bit about shonda. So shonda rhimes was born in chicago. Illinois in january nineteen seventy. She was the youngest of six children. Her mother vero was a college professor and her father.

She was ranked top of her class at usc. And she earned the gary rosenberg writing fellowship. She obtained a master of fine arts degree from the. Us's school of cinematic arts. And while at usc rimes was hired as an intern by debra martin chase who was prominent black producer she also worked at denzel washington's company monday entertainment so after she graduated rimes was actually an unemployed script writer in hollywood and to make ends meet. She worked various jobs including as an office administrator. And then a counselor at a job center during this period rhymes worked as a research director documentary. Hank aaron chasing the dream which won the nineteen ninety-five peabody award. One thousand nine hundred. Eighty eight rhymes made a short film called blossoms. Unveils which starred. Jada pinkett smith and jeffrey rate. This is actually only credit as a film director. So that's nineteen ninety eight short film blossoms unveils new line cinema purchased a feature. Script of hers It ended up not being produced at that time but she received an assignment shortly thereafter to co write the hbo movie introducing dorothy dandridge in nineteen ninety nine which earned numerous awards further star. Halle berry. get out. I didn't realize that she colorado so interesting. Oh wait till you hear the the plethora of things that she's worked on. Oh no after grad school rhymes sold her first screenplay called human seeking same about an older black woman looking for love in the personal ads. And that film wasn't produced. But you have heard of her next project in two thousand and one rhymes wrote the debut film of pop singer. Britney spears the starring zoe saldana and taryn. Manning crossroads everybody. I didn't know that she wrote that. Get out up saying. I feel like it's been really it was really panned by the next but maybe for them. Okay no sometimes. It's it's sometimes you just want a nice story about friendship road trimming going on a road trip and having a nice time and may be hitting up a karaoke joint. Heck yeah and singing. I love rock and roll. That's all i'm saying is that maybe it's for them. I think lauren has actually seen crossroads. I have felt you know. She wrote that and then the next thing that she worked on in two thousand four was the sequel to the princess. Diaries called the princess diaries. Two royal engagement. Get out. yeah. I didn't realize that she was so like a dummy. I just assumed like shonda rhimes right out. The gate was grey's anatomy but apparently she was introduced are obsolete reduce. So she's working on all these film things in two thousand three. She actually wrote her first tv pilot. Abc it was about young female war correspondents but the network. Turn it down. You know what they didn't turn down ask project. So here's where sean hillen comes in sean. Billion is the name of rhymes production company shine million and its logo also referred to the shows that she has produced an also to rimes herself. So when we say shaun d land.

You have a basically they. They tried to rebrand thursdays. Like tgi. T thank goodness thursday because that its native shot in the land. I mean people are gonna watch no matter what they didn't need to need hype it up so The name shawn lane was stylized as capital s shonda capital l. Land one word from two thousand five to two thousand sixteen but since two thousand sixteen is all stylize lower case everything is lower case. It's always very recognizable font so you might often see in print as actually all lower case letters.
James West on invention and inclusion in science
"James west was born in nineteen thirty one and grew up in prince edward county virginia in before we dove into his research and work as a mentor. I wanted to know more about little kid. Jim and his relationship to science the desire to know how things work and why they were was my biggest motivator and i Completely forgot about this on purpose. But i took my grandfather's pocket watch support hundred and five pieces zenit. But i couldn't get it back together which resulted in rather severe punishment but it didn't tear my desire to know and understand how things work and so i was told that i could only take things apart that weren't working and that was the wrong thing. Say to me. Because if i could break it i did so i could get it. Why caesar now you're you're breaking stuff you're like look it doesn't work so right. Okay i mean were you. Were your parents. Supportive of your interest in in engineering and science absolutely not i was going to be the doctrine brother the data stove. I swear versa. They didn't care which would went. Only that it went in one of those two directions and When i told my father that i was changing my major from biology to physics He introduced me to two black men who have. Phd's and chemistry that were working in the post office score poem order on the railroad because the best job they could get was teaching at high school. And that didn't pay enough to support their families and he thought that i was well on the way to becoming one of them because You could be a preach at teacher lawyer doctor. But that was about it and terms of professions or black people and prince edward county virginia but in the face of all that jim stuck with it he graduated from temple university with a degree in physics and then went on to work at bell. Labs for more than forty years and his big invention with gearhart. The foil electric microphone didn't come from trying to solve one specific problem. I didn't. I don't think sat down and looks invent a better microphone. That was not the motivation at all. The motivation was why does nature behave in the way that it does. And and if i can understand that then how can i apply my knowledge to improving or to make things work better or lasts longer in this case. Oh to increase lifetime right okay. So so mu- because my understanding of this gym and you can. You can grade me. And i'm i'm worried about my grade but so basically this is really basic but microphone convert sound into an electrical signal right and it needs power to do that and you. Youtube found a material that you could basically be kind of permanently so you know basically permanently charge so instead of like necessarily needing an extra battery in there you know. You've you've got it without that. And that material that you found was essentially teflon foil urinate less. Okay okay. well now. That i've got my a plus in science. Let's let's talk. Let's talk more about bringing people new stem the thing. It's the thing that you're passionate about thinking that i'm passionate about so you know in your experience what works or if you feel like it's more importantly what doesn't when you're trying to bring people into snap well i think honesty is is The the very important role. It's not all roses so we get some thorns to nature. Doesn't always behaving the way that you you'd think it should. And and i think honesty's important because you want to succeed and and if you know that nature is not always going to work the way you'd think it works this gives you the fortitude to continue to your investigation will continue looking for a solution to a particular problem. In other words. There are two sides stored the glory side. And then there's the the grunge side but even more important science and technology got us to where we are and it's the only thing that's going get us further or out of whatever difficulty that we have a global warming all these problems. We need more diverse teen stem. diversity has been shown to be have an advantage. I used to worry about brainstorming sessions. Where all the white guys over here. And i was over ear but guess what solution west somewhere in between. And this is what. I learned that. Even though i taken same courses you know the same disciplines. I think differently as the black man than white males to yeah but this diversification is what makes this country great and what is very disturbing is that were not taking full advantage of our natural resources in human beings that can work and be productive in the field and this is the reason that i continue to push to make it available in. Jim's been pushing for a long time you can trace his efforts back to nineteen seventy at bell labs. Winning helped form the association of black laboratory employees all the way to jim's work today with his graduate students at johns hopkins university and nonprofit called the end genuity project. They offer math and science programs to students in baltimore public schools. Jim told me a story about joining their board of directors. Back in two thousand fourteen. When when i was asked if i would be interested in joining booed i wanted to know what the program's really all about and what i found. Was that the majority of students in the program mayhem and that. This did not represent the demographics of the city of ballroom. So i said looking. Put me on the board. But i'm going to make some changes. I am a change agent here because this does not represent city baltimore and not enough black people and women in the scrotum but today the program is eighty percent underrepresented naarden winning big shift. Not only that are the last time i looked two years ago. We graduated one hundred students all of them. Fellowships and scholarships seven were admitted to johns hopkins. And by the way these changes were made without ever touching the requirements for the permanent. Okay so what does this say to you. The says that they're talented people out there that we're not taking advantage if we can make that kind of change in the city of baltimore within a finite number of years with this is certainly an indication to me that there are underrepresented minority and women who are in love with science and really really look for opportunities to get in and and genuity project made that offer and they they took us up on it and i'm so glad they did. Okay so jim. I hope you don't mind me sharing this. You just tell me if you don't want it in the episode but by the time this interview comes out you will of turned ninety congrats birthday. Well thank you. So what's your advice for young scientists for young inventors who may be see themselves in you. What advice would you give them. Well there's so many things that i can think of. But i but more importantly is to follow your star you know. I'm pretty sure that whoever made me said make a scientist and a not fulfill that responsibility us. Oh i think that the happy people those people that are doing what they love to do. And if it science gray but in many cases you don't know whether it science not because you haven't had the exposure right that would tell you whether the something you think you would be interested in doing so Museums of books on and on and on learn. Learn as much as you can as early as you can. And the only major major advices learn all the math that you possibly can because it
Exploring the World of Electric Vehicles and Photography
"Going back to our roots. In nimble photography thinking has always been trouble lightly and take only pictures now as we begin to think about post pandemic exploration the world of electric vehicles has become very interesting in combining emissions free travel with nimble photography feels like a match made in heaven. I hope you enjoy the show. Like many of the lightning bolts. That have struck me over the years. The concept for this podcast is the result of ideas and situations all just together today. I'm going to explain how that happened. And then where. I think we should go from here. All righty so. Let's just start at the beginning. I been interested in electric vehicles for some time. You know that on the notification list with a volkswagen buzz which is their reimagined bus. That's all electric so the plan has been when the time came. I would sell the van again. I have in a lot of you. Know about the vancouver. I've told stories about it. I would sell to an owner. Who would really appreciate it. Take care of it and keep it going. It's it's running quite well right now and then. I would use the money from that sale as part of the down payment on the all electric volkswagen buzz. Which is their bus bus. that is really futuristic. Looking at least by all the renderings. Here's the thing. I i gave myself until twenty twenty one before i would make a decision about all this originally. I was thinking that the buzz would be in production now and then. Just be a matter of alright. When does it get to north america. And how many will be coming here. Well volkswagen been working on all sorts of stuff and they've been dealing with the pandemic at the same time. And i know one of their thoughts was or still is to build a factory here in the us To build the bus well as far as they know they haven't built the factory yet and we really don't have any ta on the bus so way back when i joined the mailing list about the bus and I got one not too long ago from volkswagen. That was talking about the car that is here in the us now Called the id four and it's basically an all electric suv built on their new platform. So i took a look at it. Because really what i'm looking for in this next. Two car is something that i can road trip with. Something that you know has enough cargo space for me to have whatever gear. I need possibly to catch a few hours at a rest. Stop if i need some rest to you know to fresh up again before. I hit the road something that just allows me the versatility to do like camping to explore areas for my photography and to do so relatively comfortably so even though the eighty four is not the bus in a dozen have some of the really nice stuff that a bus brings to the table. It brings other things to the table that are also quite nice. So i said okay. I'm gonna take a look at it. Take a look at this vehicle. And when i start looking at it i really liked what i saw so i started reading reviews on it because there has been a a pre production model here in the us. For some time they've already gone through Addition one of the car so owners already have it. So there is information on it and the reviews. Were quite good. And i'm going okay. I'm kind of excited about this. And especially knowing that who knows when the bus is gonna show up. I'll deal with that when that happens so i decided to go ahead and put a reservation down on the. Id four and the way that i worked with a volkswagen program is that you put one hundred dollars down to place your reservation and at that time you design your car. You know you're on you're on the site and you know you're deciding what color you want and deciding what packages you want color interior. You know all that kind of stuff. So i designed my id four and is beautiful beautiful blue with a light gray interior different. Environmental lighting on the inside is pretty fun
Be Careful What You Say In A Job Interview
"Okay you and what have you got on deck this week. Well kim. i wanted to talk about the job interview. Were coming up to the end of february. This is typically You know usually a busier hiring season. You know people usually. They're going to let employees go. That's sort happens kind of late. November you close to close enough to the end of the year but not so close that it sort of falls in that christmas vacation range that sort of almost like a blackout period for terminations and It sort of carries over into the beginning of january and then by february usually kinda companies are looking at at hiring. So i've been chatting with a lot of people lately about Employment agreements and reviewing contracts for for new job offers. And it occurred to me that you know a chattanooga boat job interviews and do's and don'ts for employers employees might not be such a bad idea yeah and you know what. It's the same over here too. I think You know for us. It's after chinese new year when people either have resigned and are looking for work over there are openings in a company for for that year and we have just finished the chinese new year. So i think this is very topical for this part of the world as well perfect. Okay well i mean you know the first thing in the application process itself your cv right. Let's make sure your c vs them to date and that it accurately reflects your experience and you know that may sound like stating the obvious camp. But you'd be surprised. The number of employees that that embellish their accomplishments or skill sets Or or outright lie I came across a survey conducted by check stor There are a prominent reference checking company in the us and according to a survey that they did in in two thousand twenty. Apparently seventy eight percent of candidates admit that they have or they would consider misrepresenting themselves on their job applications so You know not an insignificant amount of people that were to come right out and say sure. I'm i'm prepared to lie on a on a job application. I feel like there must be a lot of gray area here. I mean obviously you cannot make a declared of statement that is false which is lying but i assume there is a lot of embellishment on the on the cv in just ways that might be hard to detect or might be hard to prove. But they're just sort of slight little improvements. That might be made here or there. That are not entirely false but are not entirely true. Either and i think that's probably really hard to kind of police. Yeah i mean you're absolutely right. It's always the gray area. That's gonna be be tricky to monitor You know where you have to be careful as an employee is something that is a complete and utter fiction. You know maybe a particular academic credential that you don't actually possess would be good example and then another one that often gets employees into trouble is if they've been or were fired from a previous employer and then during the job interview. The new perspective employer asks them. You know well. Hey why are you here what you know what happened with his previous position. Why did you leave And employees are often very very hesitant to say something to the effect of. Well i i you know i left because i got fired Or i left. Because i you know i stole something from my employer. Were regardless of the circumstances were even if it was just You know a simple downsizing that really had nothing to do with the employee's performance even in those situations You know often. An employee is is concerned about saying i got fired and how that might come across so they lie and they say something like yeah you know it just. It wasn't a good fit or it was the right time for me to leave. And that's a problem cam because if the employer were to find out after the fact that you were fired and they had relied on your word effectively that you know you left under under more pleasant amicable circumstances. I mean that could be cause for for discharge in terms of getting rid of you after. They've hired you. Yeah you and i mean you know this area well. How often do employers perspective employers. Do these background checks because in the course of my career I feel like they are done a lot now. I'm become more senior sort of in the industry but previously. It seemed like the employer didn't do any background checks

How Car Makers Collided With a Global Chip Shortage
"Automakers around the world are being hobbled by something thinner than a piece of paper. A chip shortage is shutting down auto factories, sending workers home and halting productions on several car lines. NPR's Ryan Kyle off reports on how we got here. Cars these days are basically two ton computers on wheels. So when auto production first shut down at the beginning of the pandemic, it meant a lot of extra computer chips sitting around At the same time, we were all sitting around, working from home and schooling from home and attending weddings from home. We all needed new computers. Every school kid needed a chromebook. There's the new PlayStation five, according to Kristin G check of the Center for Automotive Research. Chipmakers pushed their extra supply into all our new TVs and smart speakers and Internet connected washing machines. Whatever device you're hearing, this story on probably contains a computer chip. Meanwhile, auto sales rebounded way faster than anyone predicted, says Patrick Manzi, with the National Auto Dealers Association. Most of us did not expect this. The sails right in April, fell to the lowest on record, at least back to the seventies. Since we've been tracking this When carmakers suddenly needed chips again. Those supply lines were spoken for. Switching them back takes time up to six months to reallocate capacity. So now carmakers have a dire short term need that can't be addressed in the short term. Manzi expects global production to drop by about a million cars this quarter. It's it's It is a non trivial amount for American auto workers at idled plants. That means up to 25% pay cuts for the duration. The effects will trickle down through the massive cottage industry of car parts suppliers and everyone they employ at the car lot, Manzi says. There will be vehicles to buy. It just may be a little bit more difficult to find that exact specifications that you're looking for. If you wanted the red one with the leather. Maybe they only have the gray one with the leather, right. Now President Biden is stepping in Ordering a review and to expanding chip manufacturing in the U. S. Instead of Taiwan and Korea. Treating chips is essential American goods crucial to so many things we use every day. That new American factories would take years to bring online. In the meantime, the shortages spreading, disrupting supplies for cell phones and laptops. Analysts say it likely get worse before it gets better. For consumers. It's probably a good time to drive carefully and try not to drop your cell phone.

Loujain al-Hathloul, Saudi women's rights activist, released from prison
"Done nothing except champion. A woman's right to drive a car. But yesterday saudi arabian activists widow. Jane hathloul was released after a thousand and one days in prison. Family members and international human rights groups have been calling for her release and an end to her alleged torture. Al hathloul was arrested in two thousand eighteen for leading a campaign to grant women the right to drive in saudi arabia. Dr best mamani joins me. Now she's a professor of political science at the university of waterloo canada. Welcome to the program. How significant is this Lujan al hathloul release from jail. Well it's just wonderful news to be honest with you. I think so. Many of us were worried for her. She's a wonderful person. And i think certainly the fact that She's finally been released is a great thing. But they're still a lot of concern about her situation. And i think there's going to be a large discussion. And hopefully she'll be able to at some point talk about the really the suffering she endured. I mean the photo of her after release. It's joyous smile. But how does login even start to rebuild life after trauma like this. There are allegations of torture during your time in jail. So i think the rebuilding process for her is going to be significant. Certainly of course the the trauma being imprisoned I think there was abuse That may have been sexual nature as well torture from looking at the picture. She's clearly thinner. She has gray hair now and i met her five years ago with not a not a single gray hair on her head and i mean there's definitely a beaming smile in the photo. And that's because she's with her her parents but she still separated from her siblings of course many of which are outside the country and ex husband. You know there was a falling out of of a marriage because of the so. I think there's there's a lot of pain and suffering. I'm sure aside from her parents. You have a sense of what her support system in. Saudi is no i think She's certainly under a some sort of gag. Order not to speak to people and i suspect House arrested is a part of that. So she's not gonna have free movement in any way She has a wonderful family parents. Who are very supportive And have been really behind her from from day one of her activism. they're really quite impressive. People dutchwoman. Let's get to the bigger picture. We know that crown prince of saudi arabia mohammed bin salman sees himself as a reformer. What impact could james release have on the internal politics of saudi. Arabia haven't been really wants to take this as a win. A certainly i think if it wasn't for the biden administration coming in. I don't think we would have seen her release unfortunately so elections matter as they say but one of the things that i think her story will be told hush hush i think many people are discussing it online and certainly social media buzz there some very interesting hashtags and saudis twitter to talk about all these kinds of issues there still a lot of great discontent at the same time. Unfortunately hamad bin salman is seen as reformer in some way internally. He's opened up the country culturally. And and certainly you know. Put down the conservative or religious police which is a welcome news for young people. So you know. I think she she would be to be honest with you and more popular of saudi arabia than inside saudi arabia. But that's partly because of kind of nationalist propaganda that has permeated much of saudi society today.
Modern Oracle divination with dream interpretation
"Welcome to kits myths and mysteries. I'm your host kit crumb today in my month. Long investigation into different forms of detonation. I've locked up word. Divination is defined as the art or practice that seeks to force your for tell future events or discover hidden knowledge usually by the interpretation of omens unusual insights or intuitive perception with that definition in mind decide to take a look at dream analysis in ancient times people saw dream says vessels of meaning that contain divine messages and had the power to alter history alexander. The great was on the verge of breaking ground for his new city. When a gray haired man appeared to him in a dream the man told him about an island off the coast of egypt when alexandra woke he scrapped the building side and instead found an island on which to construct alexandria today. People still look for meaning in their dreams who are methods of interpreting. Dreams have changed since alexander's day. Our desire to understand them as much the same truth. No one knows why we dream or why we dream what we dream. Dreams are sensory experiences. That happened while you're sleeping. In a dream you see things here sounds and feel physical sensations. You may or may not remember your dreams when you wake up but everybody dreams. Freud pioneered a body of research based on dreams later young expanded the dream theory with his own ideas. Modern co creative dream theories consider how you respond to dream imagery and how you can use that information to guide your waking life now going back a little bit. The ancient sumerians messa taymiyya have left evidence of dream interpretation dating back to at least thirty one hundred bc throughout mesopotamia. History dreams were always held to be extremely important for devastation. And mesopotamia and king paid close attention to them dream analysis also referred to as dream interpretation hinges on the idea that you can attach meaning to your dreams. This process has been used in a wide variety of settings including ancient civilizations a variety of religions including christianity. But keep in mind the dreams you dream pertained to you and your life. Beware of using a standard interpretation for example. If your dream that you can't remember the combination to your school locker. It means that something you are trying to do is being blocked. This interpretation may apply to one person but not to another. Your dreams are yours often. When we visit a fortune teller that lays out the future. We tend to seek a path to the aspect of our future similar to the idea of seeking validation. If you believe that you are slow learner you seek develop that belief or if you wake up in a bad mood and decide is probably going to be a rotten day. Chances are that you will without being conscious of the fact seek out events that make that day pretty bad and validate your early morning declaration. That is going to be a bad day. You know a self fulfilling prophecy now. Returning dream interpretation. Listen and take note then go home or to a neutral place where you're quiet alone and look closely at the result of your dreams as interpreted determine what dreams really do symbolize something going on in your life.

Kim Jones on the Making of Air Dior
"It's been a crazy. Eight months herself is being crazy as being busy. Yeah and i've appreciated time at home and being able to have time to myself. Reflect more of john when you were say a lot of time to research the excited about a very eventful few months but today we're here to talk about sneakers. what makes an amazing sneaker. And what makes an amazing sneaker launch air. Dior or shoe which we have right here. It's like the most sought after sneaker in the world right now. yeah. I've been scouring the internet to kind of see what people are saying and how much they cost and you know it's crazy how quickly they've accelerated price. I wanted to start with your own relationship with sneakers because it goes back a long time. This is not a trend. You just jumped on. I mean most people who know me know that i started out working at a company called gimme five whereas college but before that when a student also at school nyc for me was the absolute must have an odd save off and dish. Dishwasher governed by pair of sneakers and people have michael jordan with the heroes and just everyone was wearing sneakers. Me and my friends would chip into bypass to share them and share parents of have jordan. Fives that were on. Discount in place in brighton that we bought a we went and three as on them now. Forty five pounds and we chipped by them and then we take them in terms of obviously make sure no one stood on them and sick have never allowed to go out anywhere teaching them and it was just you. Nuts is the design. It was just like it was a cult thing. It became colton. You know we both got these which the first one of the first has jordan's in the white and gray which is the basis for the ed your and the ideal thing was really dickel t and i've had a contract with nike for quite few years. And then they taught me about being jordan. And as i really love to do with your because they've never done and luxury house with georgian collaborations. I would take italian at you know jordan with the dior factories and really make something special and exciting. And it's really you know it was solid. Where do you want jordan's that was really how it started as bit selfish so before we get into the actual kind of design of the shoe. Because i think there's a lot of thought that goes into that. Of course the jordan one for the uninitiated amongst us. I think sneaker has called it the aj one. Why is that such an important shoe. Silhouette i think is just such design. Classic infamy you does periods in history. Whether it's been shoes. Come out like this on the air. Max ninety five that just speak to people and they speak to a generation of people for me. I didn't have the original pair of these because they a bit too young for them and they really out of my price range and they weren't so easy to get the uk. And then as i started going to japan as i graduated i started collecting fares what i think the first bought seven bucks in a flea market and then to visit a friend where does student and that was kind of to shake shaking. You just they just become infectious shots at me. Now you just love to design it so joining a club. I guess so. When you're thinking about designing a shoe that has to balance effectively three different brands right. Young jordan has its own brand completely new operated separately with its own team. Then there's night key which obviously is like gave birth to the jordan. There's there's three iconic brands so when you're when you're when you're designing a shoe and you have to balance the dna. Three brees was really like we need to netflix. Because that's one of the criterias of deal is significant advance. We knew the letter had to be sourced. We knew we wanted to have the finishings. Made like bag would be made. So you have the edge painting. You have the way that things are hand finished in the sewing. The oblique here is made specific size just the jordan and it scaled per size of georgian. And you have again. You have on the tongue which is a new technique that we developed an inside the leather so units inside which they did have the normal jordan and inside. I have the numbers or these are the ones from the miami share. Whichever forty has them and really making them for people that would appreciate something and understand the croft now in consumption when you talked about fashion. I'm very aware of numbers and craft being important people. I think young people are learning by nets and they won't buy things last longer for me. Doing things like this was something being a limited number of things but it's creates excitement. There were only thirteen. Thousand pairs of shoes made but there's also a whole bunch of other skews in the collection which may be the as much. Yeah i mean. We've mentioned what we michael jordan's wore jay. But he was because he was the coolest guy and it was like he will seats all the time and we were looking at we made of his clothes and then we had to call them present it all to him which was kind of because he sees everything can approves everything jordan. What was that like. I mean he was super lovely. And i get in chicago. We went to do the don't it was like. I was really impressed that he was to be honest. That's the cage stream isn't it. I guess it was. He was just radiant. He's and you want to keep them the stuff so we can keep it and travis was there and he was reading into it so you know promise travis he'd be one of the people have it and it was just it was. It was an appreciation for each other. That was the thing that was nice about. What did you have to see to the powers that via d. or to get them. I mean they've never done nothing like that. I had to piatra use my ceo and we have extremely good relationship. And i was like. I really want to do this. What you think it nina. He's in his twenties and he was thought it was cool idea who grew up here as per say that was pretty easy to do in nyc. Nike was little bit but then they got into. It was his reading managing expectations of everybody in the right
Beating Anxiety With Food With Liana Werner-Gray
"Well. Hey guys welcome. Back to the podcast. Today we're gonna talk about anxiety free with food. And we have the author of this great new book liana werner gray. She's a good friend of mine. She's written the earth diet cancer-free with food and now her new release anxiety free with fooding zaidi's such a big issue. There's so many people that are dealing with at especially with everything that's been going on in the world today and definitely a key link between gut health in the foods that were eating and how our brain is handling stress how reactive we are The way that we are processing the things are in our world and sewing. Zayed's is not something that is You know it's not a. It's not an end destination there. There's a lot of hope for a lot of things we can do for it and really starts with our nutrition lifestyle choices that were making so liana. Welcome to the podcast. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me on wolf for sure and again. This is such an important topic. And you know you're a young woman and so anxiety. Obviously all all all genders all demographics steel with anxiety but especially women and would love to hear your story. Yeah so anxiety. Apparently this year the stats have gone up to one in. Three people are really struggling with anxiety versus one in five last year in two thousand and nineteen. Now it's already into two one now. Yes so it's anxieties to skyrocketed and it does affect everyone end a small amount of anxiety to as a stress response is considered healthy. So if something happens to us and we naturally feel that stress. It's the mind in the body's way of saying okay need to have a resolution for this but anxiety that is happening for hours or days days. That is a severe anxiety that we need to be suffering worth of struggling with end. What i discovered was that there are actually some really simple and quick effective ways to clear out anxiety and he'll it especially with focusing on nutrition. Sir i was experiencing heightened amount of anxiety and i was curious as to where it was coming from because i have a lot of faith believe in god and goddess like dart have anxiety costs. All your kids on me. And i was constantly doing that so i was like. I don't think it's coming from from a spiritual reason. And i thought i don't think it's coming from a mental or emotional reason either and i thought this might be purely chemical and it could be a chemistry balanced my brain and so i went and got a blood tests. Done and sure enough isn't in one of the main things that if we're deficient in that we will have anxiety. According to science so short enough. I was deficient in her mega. Three fatty acids and my started taking fish oil supplements Wild fish and then eating more cheese hemp seeds and a matter of days. I could feel the difference. My brain felt more if that's visual. Nfl less scotteri. My nervous system felt more common for chris. I didn't feel more tired. I felt more alert and energize and it was incredible feeling and i thought wow if this is if it's as simple as this and a lotta people are also chemically imbalanced with their physical buddy than i wanna share this answer. I really went down the rabbit hall set of researching putting this book together and found out a lot of other nutritional reasons for the causes of anxiety and then do a lotta research. What foods can help clear out. And then what food. You're actually proven genetic that actually causes anxiety as soon as we put them into a mouse. Yeah it's a really good. Really good intro to this topic. And so we know that fish oil. Epa ya the long chain omega threes really play important role in the brain and also play important role in our inflammatory process. And so you know where people have been told when they have mood disorders that these things are chemical imbalances but the chemical imbalance is really downstream. It's you know it's not. The root cause cause oftentimes has to do with nutrient deficiencies and chronic inflammation. In the brain. We have inflammation in the brain. Were going to be more. Reactive are neurons can be closer to thresholds. they're going to be Firing off from stimuli. That probably probably shouldn't be firing off from right. Which makes them more reactive. And you know makes you have a lot more. Cha challenges just trying to control your emotions and so glad that you're able to figure that out and make a threes are really critical at this. So let's talk about the relationship between the gut and what's happening in the gut and what's happening in the brain. Yeah we'll i know you're a gun expert and i love the work that you do on this and serve all of the studies on anxiety pointed to the gut brain connection and how connected they are and that we have certain gut microbiome fascinating studies. That i found was that people with anxiety have a difference dot microbiome than people who dart have severe anxiety. That was fascinating to me. So then that tells us that we can change our gut microbiome and that will therefore change the anxiety that we experience and then we can also work on the the brain pot a bit and the part of it will reduce that. That's also going to change our gut microbiome so they work hand in hand with each other and so in my book. It's full of recipes and foods that really helped cultivate are very a very healthy gut. Microbiome and healthy gut environment and helped clear out d talks. I'm a huge advocate for detoxing especially people are just new to getting into this then. A detox is totally critical to clean out. That you know the dirty water so to speak dirty water we can fill it out with the clean water so doing a detox to clear out the gut and then start rebuilding it with all the good stuff and that helps out brain sorry much. Their source are connected that gut brain connection.

"gray" Discussed on Extraterrestrial
"Coming up. We delve into whether the grays have become the alien alien race because they're real or not now back to the story the second half of the twentieth century the rate of UFO AFO sidings increased drastically and some of the most iconic ones featured the grays small humanoid aliens with enormous heads and is atop sinewy childlike bodies. They abducted Betty and Barney Hill. They were at Roswell. They had encounter after encounter with real real world writers who then recorded their experiences in books sold on nonfiction shelves across the world. But the grays have come to populate the human world even even more frequently as fictional characters across media from film and TV to advertisements to our Moji keyboards the greys are everywhere anywhere. What do AFO researchers want to know is if that's because they're real? There's no evidence to suggest that the first man to record gray cray like aliens in writing H. G. Wells believed they existed but he did call the first essay describing them a prophecy in one of his novels. Perhaps perhaps it really was a prophecy. Considering the fact that these same aliens went onto appear in many real life UFO sightings. But let's revisit that some of the major events in which the grays played a role and examine just how believable they were first. There was Barney and Betty hills abduction and it reportedly happened in nineteen sixty one but the hills didn't go public with their story until one thousand nine hundred sixty five right at the height of the UFO craze while they're story with its abduction element was fairly innovative. It's still fit into a broader. UFO Zeitgeist in Cold War paranoia. Plus Barney and betty were an interracial couple at a time when race relations were tents and rapidly changing. It was a stressful difficult period for for them as we concluded in our episodes on their story it seems most likely that their abduction narrative emerged out of these combined. freshers with the help of hypnosis have no service which is to say there were probably never abducted although they likely saw some kind of identified flying object in the mountains of New Hampshire in their episode. We gave their story a believability rating of three. Not Very high which is to say they likely never saw any aliens. Graze or otherwise Roswell is no different while it was an endlessly intriguing event full of fascinating accounts almost all of that testimony. Tony was given decades after the fact and most of it was second hand including the story of the still unnamed nurse who suggested to UFO researchers. Richer's that the aliens who crashed in New Mexico where grace in our episodes on the Roswell incident we gave the crash score of four on our believability scale which which again means that the nurse probably never saw the grays in fact she may never even have existed she could easily have been a creation of the man who relayed her stories to UFO researchers the testimony of the novelist Whitley Strieber who reportedly reportedly had personal experiences with the grays was never corroborated by any evidence likewise with the docu-dramas of French writer. And filmmaker Jimmy you you finally race Antilles Film Alien Autopsy which seemed at first to be remarkable evidence that the greys existed turned out to be fake so all of these real world sightings which lend the reality of the greys credibility aren't so credible but the question still remains remains. Why is this image of the grey aliens everywhere? If they're not real. There is another possibility. Let's go back to H. G. Wells for a moment. He wasn't only the first to write about the grays. He was one of the first to write about aliens at all icon. ICK works like his eighteen. Ninety eight war of the worlds influenced generation after generation of science fiction readers and writers because because at the time there wasn't much else to inspire them hence his title father of Science Fiction his cultural influence particularly on the idea of aliens is hard to underestimate by the time. Extraterrestrial sighting started picking up speed during the Cold War in the nineteen fifties and sixties. His writing had been shaping the fictional discourse around aliens for over fifty years. We've discussed some of the many sci fi stories influenced by H. G. Wells Orson Wells Nineteen thirty eight radio adaptation of the war of the worlds Steven. Spielberg's nineteen seventy seven close encounters of the third kind and these were far from carbon copies of h g wells work but they were participating in long lineage of storytelling that began with swells and develop from there spreading from the world of novels and movies to the IPHONES. emoji keyboard. Culture is funny. Any light that it's always characterized by memes following the original definition posited by evolutionary biologist. Richard Dawkins that is to say eh per dawkins definition it's full of eternally repeating images always varying slightly but in graining certain ideas into the very fabric of our society along the way and as we've seen throughout this show extraterrestrial sightings have long been tied to the ebbs and flows of cultural cultural anxieties and concerns. They've also long been tied to our storytelling. Something else we've seen throughout this show many alien sightings blend in fact with fiction or outright fiction with more fiction to create compelling narratives. This is all to say science fiction based storytelling highlighting the grays seeped into the broader cultural consciousness. It's influenced everything from film to Children's toys and it seems natural that it also started influencing fake alien sightings the fact that there's no particularly believable real world gray sightings actually supports. Is this idea. The grays have always it seems. been a story. They're still the question of why out of all the aliens H. G. Wells described. It was the grays that caught on but there may be an evolutionary reason for that the large I'd bigheaded. Small audie graze while admittedly creepy looking are nevertheless evocative of children and humans are evolutionary primed to find children children or anything childlike cute. In other words we see large eyes and a small body whether on puppy a baby or maybe an alien Leeann as attractive and adorable. Perhaps this attraction helped the image stick the cultural image so the alternative. The possibility to the idea that grazer real is that they are a deeply ingrained cultural icon one so deeply ingrained that it starts to feel real bill so deeply ingrained that when someone wants to lie about an alien sighting or even jobs through a few mental hoops to manufacture without meaning to ally. It's the grays that they reach for. It is a convincing solution but the fact does stand just like. There's some possibility that something something went down with Barney and Betty Hill and that something happened back in Roswell in nineteen forty seven. There's a possibility that the gray's really did ed pop down to visit Earth a few times just like H G wells prophesized after all if they did exist he would explain perfectly why this version of aliens caught on with other science fiction writers and the public alike perhaps. They're the most believable kind of aliens. Because on some level they're real that said we give the existence of the Gres a score of three out of ten on our believability scale with ten and being the most believable and one being very unlikely we assume that wells with his vivid rich imagination and his love of the strange would be on board and with that after all until the greys are disproven. There's always a possibility that they're out there. Just like with all heart art extraterrestrials. We're taking the show on hiatus after this episode but we won't stop thinking about all the unresolved unresolved threads the holes in the official stories and the bizarre testimony that we've seen while researching extraterrestrials. We've shot down plenty of wild stories that that simply didn't add up. George domke comes to mind among others. But we've also seen some instances that are much harder to rationalize away like the render some the incident in England one thousand nine hundred eighty or the shag harbour crash in Canada in nineteen sixty seven and always more than anything. We've been fascinated by the very human human feeling curiosity and belief that's gone into the winding story of extraterrestrial research on Earth as we always say in our intro. Oh each of these stories. We've covered has garnered thousands if not millions of true believers and for that reason they've been well worth exploring flooring.

"Most readers assume the article was simply an invention of the eighteen ninety eight novel considering that the book his fiction after all in fact the article was real but it too was fiction and written by the same author as the novel itself Alf in the context of wells career. This provided a delightful if somewhat mind boggling example of just how Meta his work could be but for a Ufo the phone through it also hinted at an intriguing possibility. What if the war of the worlds was right and that I text mentioning gray like creatures? Church really was a prophecy. Not About Man's future but about a real alien race wells did did present the gray creatures as fiction but many things he presented his fiction. His novels turned out to be real eventually. His writing seemingly predicted everything from the airplane. In the atomic bomb to satellite television and the World Wide Web one example shows up in his nineteen twenty-three text men men like Gods where wells presents a futuristic utopia where people communicate exclusively through wireless systems which look a whole lot like a mix of voice mail and email Simon James Professor of English studies at Durham University and former editor of the official journal of the H. G. Wells Society. The explained wells was an imagination in a hurry. He wanted to get to the future sooner than it was going to happen. That's why he's so predictive addictive in his writing. He was a true visionary and perhaps his vision of aliens in the war of the worlds was yet another example of his imagination. Asian spying a future reality even for wells. The Gray like aliens he described in the war of the worlds seem to have struck a nerve. He couldn't quite get them out of his head. The war of the worlds wasn't wells. Only science fiction novel to describe extraterrestrial fuel beings in terms matching his man of the year million article his nineteen o one book the first man in the moon presented the moon's inhabitants similarly he described them as follows. They resembled man. In maintaining the erect attitude ended having four limbs and I have compared the general appearance appearance of their heads and the joining of their limbs to that of insects I have mentioned to their fragile slightness. Wells called these creatures selling nights after the Greek Moon Goddess. Selene he also mentioned their short stature and their big heads as well as their sophistication and intelligence intelligence very gray like in appearance interestingly however the gray like aliens wells described in each of his texts played very very different roles and exhibited very different behaviors. Here they maintain their own complex society beneath the surface of the moon but in the war of the worlds they were little more than Chattel simply food for the dominant Martians. Most readers attribute the evocative imagery in different storylines lines in both texts to wells rich vivid imagination that same imagination that won him the title father of science fiction but just like his present descriptions of technologies resembling atomic bombs and Internet. Perhaps wells gray like aliens were also an eerily really accurate prediction of something real to come. His work certainly went on to influence other authors. But these strange aliens aliens started showing up in real world extraterrestrial sightings to coming up. We'll discuss the evolution of the greys from the stuff of satire and Scifi to the stuff of news reports and exposes says now back to the story in eighteen ninety three the first written record of a huge headed lustrous. I'd humanoid appeared in the work of science fiction author H G wells. It wasn't long before these creatures were populating. Other science fiction books. One was in nineteen thirty three Swedish novel by Gustaf Sand Grin. who used the pen name? Gabrielle Linda like Wells Aliens signed Zongren. Extraterrestrials had large heads in is weak chins and a short stature but wells work didn't just influence other SCI FI writers it also inspired one of the greatest pranks in US history in one thousand nine hundred thirty eight Orson Welles. NO RELATION TO H G narrated and directed in American radio play version of H G wells the war of the world. The sixty minute broadcast presented. The first I two thirds of the show as a news bulletin describing odd explosions on Mars followed by apparently unrelated report of a strange object. OBJECT FALLING IN GROVER MILL NEW JERSEY. These news reports were interspersed with musical interludes like any radio broadcast but then they. We started to get stranger and scarier. Martians emerged from the fallen cylindrical. Grove's mill and then they attacked hacked. Listeners were terrified. Thanks to horsing wells ingenious presentation. A swath of the public was convinced. The story wasn't fiction but breaking news. Hanoch erupted according to some reports up to a million people ran out into the streets. There is trained on the sky looking for descending aliens. The scope of hysteria was likely exaggerated by contemporary very newspapers looking to discredit radio as up. Reputable News source but the central fact remains. The radio. Play was extremely convincing. This was in part because of the news bulletin gimmick but it was also because the story was so compelling H. G. Wells extraterrestrials Seemed real and their ties to reality would only get stronger in the years to come beginning with Barney and Betty Hill. Frequent listeners may recall our episodes on their story middle aged interracial American couple Barney and Betty Hill claimed that they'd been abducted from rural New Hampshire back in September nineteen sixty one by a crew of aliens throughout the Cold War and its accompanying space race and technological innovation and there was increasing real world focus on extraterrestrial life. Something we've discussed throughout this show. Humanities is on the sky in in a new way and they were seeing strange things up there including plenty of UFO sightings some were easily explained as human aircraft satellites or other airborne technologies others. Were harder to identify. But the story of Barney and Betty Hill was one of the first ever reports of of an alien abduction. The hill couple shared graphic details of abuse apparently suffered at the hands of their alien captors. Their her story gained international attention making headlines. Far beyond their native New Hampshire their story came together slowly with the help of hypnosis this and at different stages of their psychological evaluations the account played out differently but the predominant image of the hill abductors was of of tiny humanoid creatures with enormous slanted. Black is in other words. The grays somehow the same visual characteristics that H. G. Wells noted in that 1893 article were showing up in a nineteen. Sixty one New Hampshire alien abduction. Listen but the presence of the GREYS didn't end with the case of Barney and Betty Hill in the late nineteen seventies UFO researchers. There's dead into an alleged extraterrestrial crash in Roswell New Mexico. They published their findings in a nineteen. Eighty book called the Roswell incident. Thanks thanks in part to their investigation. The Roswell crash which apparently occurred in nineteen forty seven is one of the most well known extraterrestrial sightings of all time time but it's iconic for reason the list of people who may have seen or who may know something about Roswell is endless white. The story have Barney and Betty Hill. We've covered the citing roswell in detail in earlier episodes but what would like to focus on. Here is the testimony of one nurse who who story was shared. Second Hand in Nineteen ninety-one book by Donald Schmitt and Kevin randle called UFO crash. At Roswell Glenn Dennis Arroz well resident working at a local funeral home in nineteen forty seven told the nurses story to the book's authors. He was apparently a friend of hers whom she confided. Fight it in and although he never named her he explained what allegedly happened to her. For the sake of this episode will call her Lucy. Lucy was working at the Roswell Army airfield as a nurse in early July nineteen forty seven. She walked into the infirmary as usual. But she'd missed a memo telling all regular nursing staff to stay away. She wasn't supposed to be there but she couldn't unsee and see what she encountered. Inside that building the infirmary was swarming with men in plastic sanitary suits. Their faces were covered with surgical surgical masks and they were all examining a pair of Cadavers unzipped bodybags. The corpses were small and mangled the size of children but their proportions weren't those of children atop their gauntlet bodies were large bulbous heads completely completely bald and on those heads enormous slanting is but few other distinct facial features no ears here's teeth noses just like h g wells had prophesized. The Roswell aliens were like the Barney and Betty Hill aliens NHS grays. But this still wasn't the end of the real world gray sightings in nineteen eighty-seven writer Whitley Lee strieber up to this point. Best known as a horror novelist wrote a non fiction book on his personal experiences with extraterrestrial life called Communion mm Union the book chronicled strippers terrifying inexplicable.

We are not both are equally terrifying and we remain terrified this week as we explore the most iconic alien race the grays they represent the most widely sadly recognized pop culture version of extraterrestrial life and they show up everywhere from science fiction novels to real life UFO sightings while their personalities behaviors and apparent intentions are remarkably varied. Their appearance is always the same today. We'll trace the history history of this strange race and determine whether their persistence in the extraterrestrial record is the result of an incredibly unusual cultural phenomenon. Or if they actually exist to trace our way through the history of the Greys we have to go all the way back to eighteen. Ninety three and the office of British author H G. Wells wells was at twenty-seven-year-old aspiring writer. He had one nonfiction book under his belt. A textbook of biology jeep and was beginning to write short humorous articles for periodicals like the now defunct Pall Mall budget in the fall of eighteen. Ninety three he does it work on one particular story which he would eventually title the man of the year million the peace like most of wells work at the time took casillas tone. It claimed to be a review of great unwritten volume by Professor Holtz cough of Vice Nick University. This work once it was written would detail. The man of the year million per the article's title and Wells Riding took on the task of explaining what this man would look like and and how he would behave now not only is the volume wells purports to be reviewing unwritten but Holtz cough is German for blockhead and and even vice nick volks refers to an imaginary city in Thomas Carlyle satirical eighteen thirty three work SARTORI resources from there. The the city's name became code for more general indefinite unknown or imaginary place as the Merriam Webster. Dictionary defines it today. Wells readers at publications like the Palamau budget would have been accustomed to the thriving tradition of British satire and to these primed readers. All of the above were immediate giveaways that the article was an extended show of wit a joke. The joke being about the bizarre man of the year million described by this imaginary professor in his imaginary book. A being of brain rather than body. The titular man's stature ascher was small while his head was large. His skin was gray and his face was described as follows is large urge. lustrous beautiful soulful above them no longer separated by rugged brow ridges is the top of the head a glistening joining hairless dome to reet and beautiful no craggy knows rises to disturb by its own meaning shadows the symmetry of that calm calm face no vestigial ears project. The mouth is a small perfectly round aperture toothless and Gum Louis joyless Hollis on animal no futile emotions disturbing. It's round nece as it lies. Like the harvest moon or the evening star. In the wide firmament firmament of the face the description presents under irving features as great positives. This future man won't need most of the body parts we hold hold dear such as years or teeth because he relies on intellect alone for survival. He is evolved beyond those animalistic traits that defined the modern biological man such as the need to chew food instead of eating he immerses himself in nutritive fluid paddling about with with his pals instead of sitting down to dinner. No more table manners. Just communal baths the article was accompanied by an illustration of a creature shirt resembling a fetus. Man's future apparently was visually similar to his past as a baby to readers in eighteen ninety. Three the irony of the whole thing was hilarious or meant to be but this portrayal of the man of the year million also present. Something that sounds a whole lot ought like the greys to UFO enthusiasts in the twentieth century the image seems less amusing and more intriguing. uh-huh and what wells did next only increased the intrigue his career accelerated. He went on to author dozens of novels short stories and books of social commentary before he died in nineteen forty six but in generations to come he'd be best known as the father of science. It's fiction one of his most famous Sifi. Texts was the eighteen ninety eight novel. The War of the worlds which documents and alien invasion of earth the main invading race of aliens in the text wasn't the grays but the MARTIANS octopus like creatures made up of a disembodied head. Ed With Sixteen Tentacles clustered next to the beast's mouth but the gres show up in the novel to no longer a description for the evolution of man. Dan Wells transposes his man of the year million into a subjugated alien race that act as food for the dominant Martians in in eighteen ninety eight the grays became aliens interesting late in the novel. Wells referred back to his article on the man of the year million as a prophecy without mentioning that he himself had written it in the context of the book. The article or prophecy was a real world taxed published in eighteen ninety three periodical..

"The mist was thick. The air filled with an almost electric crackle of anticipation and the crowd of spectators stared agog at the strange vessel before them a flying saucer illuminated with a million blinking lights. It's they were waiting but they didn't have to wait long. Suddenly a horde of creatures spilled from the mouth of the ship with child sized bodies and enormous heads. They seemed. Almost all is pitch black inky is as unfathomable the mobile and endless as space itself they were sinewy doll like with their androgynous naked figures and they were gray. So goes one of the final scenes of Steven. Spielberg's nineteen seventy seven film close encounters of the third kind and it's fiction but the extraterrestrials it presents are a disturbingly common fiction there. The universally accepted image of alien alien and have been for decades. The image has had remarkable. Staying power is that just coincidence or is there another darker worker reason for the fact that we can't seem to shake these odd creatures. Some people believe there is they believe grays are real walking amongst us. Just half hidden by multinational government conspiracies seeping into the world through stories and strange sightings.

We can't talk about it too much because that would perhaps be spoiler alert time talking general I love that you felt that way yeah my whole ambition was not to make like Daddy's Amini not really interesting the idea was dramatically to set up the father as an ogre figure and you're gonNA mythic terms be pretentious for a second but then you know the owner ability is important the idea that ultimately there is a kind of atonement there is a kind of openness willingness to be vulnerable but that's I think what makes for good performances but you know we may be from Mars on this because there is a kind of clarity that comes from he's the villain when the when the actor is doing a kind of a turn as a Baddie but I didn't feel him as a villain I don't either by the way I didn't I just sort of thought that you know we all we all have people in our lives who put work first course and we all have people in our lives who maybe don't behave way we wish they would and so to me it wasn't essay I didn't feel that I didn't feel that he's those of you haven't seen the film and why haven't you yeah those of you who haven't seen the film Brad Pitt Stars as an astronaut an elite corps astronauts always have been always will be her but a guy who is calm level-headed never loses his cool and is kind of a living symbol of the space program in the near future that's right and he is tasked with a very delicate mission that has supersede Britt very classified to go into deep space and tried to make contact with his father who was like him a well known prominent highly regarded astronaut who vanished went missing as they say sixteen years ago and may be responsible for some some strange transmissions is trying to send the Nicholas Brothers out into the unit verse which is the I'm not GonNa say the best part of the movie or it's up there I'll tell you for me well I I'm I don't know whether that's good or bad it's good because I love them so deep that having them pop up on the screen you see the Nicholas Brothers you don't know who the Nicholas Brothers our goal look them up they are two of the most phenomenal performers and Fred astaire I believe I thought they were the greatest dancers in history I mean they they are they kind of are I mean that that is my little oh mas to them I covered them not knowing who they were were I'm sorry to admit this maybe only about ten or twelve years ago and you know what happens when you see their dance routine your jaw hits the ground it's almost like it's not only acrobatics because it's sublime grace it's joy it's amazing I mean that was meant to be you know he's Tommy Lee Jones he says you and I watched black and white music yes but yes the Nicholas Brothers maybe the greatest dance routines ever filmed I and I say this by the way as a huge Fred astaire partisan oh no no they are it's just different in the same way I say don't ask People Buster Keaton Charlie Chaplin don't do that love them both door buster Keaton but gonNa tell you a funny thing as an aside I've decided and this is a fairly recent development in my own musings was pretty sad the way to be in my own head but Charlie Chaplin I've decided is the greatest director in the history movies I was watching with my son we were watching the great dictator which I had not seen for twenty years and they'll he's just turning fourteen and I've been showing them all sorts of films he had an interesting reaction showed him Bonnie hyde recently in very interesting reaction to that which we can talk about in a second but I we watched great great dictator. I don't know how well you remember the film but there's a moment where Paulette Goddard has kept starring Skillet in her hand and she by accident hits chaplain over the head with it and she's leaning out the window and he's in the street and he starts doing this wobbly dance mmm which is unbelievably funny but the camera dollies with him as he's doing this dance move and behind him on all the storefronts are painted the Jewish star says you know you'd you'd and he has catastrophe and comedy tragedy coming the same frame and I kind of want is that nine went okay you're the best you're the best and bowing down now now obviously Buster Keaton is incredible My personal favorite is Shirley opinion but I recognize other people partial to other movies but that one's my favorite and there's incredible self reflect city in the film but she can't the chaplain balancing with with Lauren grins overture balancing the Earth you know and as Hitler I mean that guy made that movie what was that mm forty came out knocking yeah so prescient and he took a lot of heat for making it you know and for releasing because we weren't yet involved in the war brilliant hand he was very it's a remarkable achievement in in many ways as a film that also as a as an act of courage tremendous well he loves chaplain he also loves Keaton by the way all the kids I have three children they all love Keaton so maybe I'm wrong about this because there's something I'm obviously also of Harold Lloyd too short yeah they love her Loyd my son's reaction to Bonnie and Clyde was interesting us he the movie finished and he looked at me and he said daddy with a very troubled look on his face she said daddy that's so dark I don't know how I don't know how to take it in dead it's so dark and he kept saying that over and over it's so dark it's so dark now the funny thing is Bonnie and Clyde very important film for me growing up I remember first seeing it early on television and I remembered thinking how funny it was and watching it again this time it's not funny at all now the movie was every bit as good if not better but was so upsetting to watch and the the ocean of sadness about both the Great Depression and the Vietnam War which of course hangs over the film and I had to kind of explain the historical context to my son a little bit in that respect he knew of the Great Depression actually from school and so he recognized the kind of Theo Lang photograph stuff and he got that but what he didn't get was the Vietnam thing hanging over the movie that this was an expression of this violence was an expression of a kind of an awakening about what was going on and I had to kind of talk him through all of that and then talk them through the new Hollywood the counterculture even He had never seen a movie like that he had been weaned on the avengers he had been weaned on wonder woman that kind Emma where he goes all the time and not the cinema where there's a kind of frankness and a cost and an authenticity or reality silence and he could not take it in it was so but here's the good news I said he didn't really like it that much and he said Daddy I dunno it was good I didn't love it a week later I see him searching for Bonnie and Clyde's car with machine-gun Holes in it on the Internet I see him reading the incline on Wikipedia. I see him noticing billboards for the high women and he says Daddy that's the movie about the guys who caught Bonnie and Clyde so clearly it had a power yeah that's a good thing I saw Bonnie and Clyde for the first time when it was new I was in my late teens and seeing that and just before right around the same time the graduate those two films were the game changers and I experiencing it in real time as I did I can't tell you what a what a credible impact they had sure and and they're both still great films they've held up what they hold up even more if you put them in context if you see them in the context of that period then that's the beginning of the call the new Hollywood late sixties going into the seventies then blossoming of the nineteen seventies and there were so many great filmmakers who came of age in that period the period that we all wish would come back flabbergasting view actually look at the the sheer number of directors and it was not a you know the I guess the darker side of the business hose would be that we we could talk about actually also what was lost in that period which I've come to appreciate more one and also the fact that minorities and women were pretty unrepresented in the kind of a budget movies and in fact.

"Hello and welcome to everything filc. I'm here with gray reinhard yay. Oh man yeah it's <hes> you're back at dragon con again this year right. That is the plan with who and <hes> let's see you. You claim that you haven't done much over the past year but a talking with you a little earlier. It seems like you've actually done a bit and you got a lot on your plate. Well i try to keep busy see but i feel as if i haven't been as productive. Maybe as i have been in in other years well. That's always always feel good if i can can get at least one story or something published in a year and and this year i didn't have a short story. Come out in an anthology gucci so at check that block block and i feel like even though i haven't released a new album or rip rip finished writing a new book or anything like that that i've at least you know made some progress while you said you were working on a new book so you are. You're at least working on it right. That is true. <hes> yeah i started close to the beginning of the year <hes> trying in writing a fantasy novel this time <hes> and actually i won't go into the nitty gritty details because the idea for it is a couple couple years old. Actually i finally figured out how to do it <hes> and in that time probably written about fifty fifty thousand words with so. It's i'd say it's almost half done on <hes> and if i can maintain that pace it means that that i would finish it <hes> early next year <hes> to wish me luck definitely good luck. I mean that sounds like if you can get that done. You'd have it by next. Dragon gone right. Oh probably not though they publishing works <hes> i would like to say that by next day khan i might have interested publisher in producing it okay okay <hes> but certainly it would not be ready for <hes> for purchase or anything like that just because the process says of developmental edits and cover art and everything that goes into <hes> taking a manuscript all the way okay through to production. I would need to be finished with the book now. Oh wow in order to really make that process assis work <hes> to its to its full so it takes at least a year from being done with the book to being being able to <hes> being able to have it fully published in ready for purchase and often longer depending on <hes> bill exactly what the what the publishing schedule is like <hes> if it's a small publisher <hes> <hes> like the folks who brought out my <hes> my science fiction novel <hes> <hes> yeah a year a little less than a year is doable <hes> because they don't do a lot of titles and the the the whole process is relatively streamlined for a bigger publisher <hes> it may be a year and a half <hes> and it may be even even longer depending on if i if they accept the manuscript but then they want changes if they say oh you know here in the third act <hes> we would really rather sure that are we think it would make a better story if you did this and then if i have to go back and rewrite part of it then it just lengthens that whole time with the editing process and everything yeah right right and this is one that i i hope that i will be able to interest <hes> a small press or even possibly a bigger press <hes> in in in publishing this just because since i work for a publisher i'm aware of the value that a good publisher brings to to any project so is that normal to look for different publishers depending on what you're writing the general question that you that you stick with your one publisher publisher of for the books that right but <hes> well it used to be back in the back in the good old days that the you know if an author published one novel or when series of novels with publisher then <hes> there might be a contractual part that says you know that that publisher gets the chance to publish the next thing that the author writes okay <hes> that that's not as standard i'll say as it used to be not as common <hes> now it's not that i have a bad ed relationship with my publisher <hes> but they publish as as as i have observed they publish more more of the more on the lines of science fiction than on the fantasy side project <hes> and while i think they would do a fine job <hes> i because i already worked for a publisher i feel that in the same way that i gave and i worked for bain books because i gave bain right of first refusal on my science fiction novel i i feel as if i o bain right of first refusal on everything i write simply because i work for them pretty much full time yeah <hes> <hes> as a contractor but but nevertheless they are my primary <hes> client and so if if <hes> as it went with the science fiction novel that they say hey this is a pretty good book but it's just not quite for us then i would probably probably go back to the word fire and let them have have a shot at it. <hes> although i've a friend of mine who has his own imprint has already expressed some interest in it so oh that's a nice feeling yes but <hes> but but i still feel as if i owe it to bain in particular <hes> to give them right of first refusal got up at <hes> <hes> and and if they were to pick it up that would be great to a fair enough now. It's just interesting a will things behind the scenes. People don't really think about and i would not have thought about it except the kind of immersed i in that world naturally well okay so doing doing well with a book that you're writing and but you also mentioned before the <hes> you came out with an audiobook over the last year right down that is true <hes> my science fiction novel walking on the sea of cloud that as i mentioned word fire press published in twenty seventeen mm-hmm <hes> this past spring audio book for that was released and folks have been very complimentary of the the production quality <hes> and in particular <hes> the because because the book involves a cast of characters that is fairly international okay <hes> the narrator had some accent accent work required to differentiate one character's voice from another and i personally think she did an excellent job. I'm in other folks have have agreed. I'm very happy about this. Great great. You know audio books as far as the publishing publishing of those go does that go through your standard publisher does that go through something completely different well in this case <hes> word fire press press. <hes> took it upon themselves to to head up the production of of audio book <hes>. They're not an audio book producer themselves so they went through <hes> a._c. Ex <hes> which is they produce a lot of audiobooks could also have gone through audible and some other places <hes> but <hes> i got involved in the process early on in in that they would send me the the auditions that people did <hes> 'cause they put out a call for auditions and i i let a lot of my friends know people. I've worked on audio productions with <hes>. Hey you know my my my book is going to be done in audio. If you wanna do it you need to do an audition and several folks <hes> told me that they would have liked to but they had other commitments and i was fine with that <hes> but so we ended up getting about six different different auditions in and i was able to express my opinion and say you know these are i would rate rate them one to six in this order and they they went with a the one that i thought the audition was the best oh good <hes> but the insider baseball part of that was that they didn't know what i knew at the time and that was that this particular audition was from my daughter.
