Cova vaccines so that companies like serum can crank out generic versions quickly and in certain countries the majority of the population won't be vaccinated for something like five years that gives those viruses a long time to mutate.

"Staying in the star wars vein roundtable with mark hamill himself or does your involved within the mirrors. Well i the one of the producers of sushi girl knew someone from google rue and i went and had a meeting with them I had done a few podcast. I mentioned in the panel. Tomlinson one with rob austin and one reason. Kevin smith one summer. I took over a radio. Show this guy was going on vacation was like on the weekends like no audience. You know it was paul show. And i'm if nothing else i i'm good at making sure there's no dead air. I have to gift doubt. I can just keep talking especially when i have phone calls when i people call in and out to reggie. It's like a walk in the park. So i said i know i can do this. The question is what would i do with it. That's why it's taken me so long. Trying figure out what it is great to be on this panel. Because i was hearing what everybody else is doing. And that's why i'm jewish. I don't know a handful of shows. Maybe half a dozen and see how it goes rather than commit to three years and fifty shows. Because i really want to be is what i like about podcasts. It's like having fans into your living. Room is an arduous task. Answer fan mail piece by piece or emails piece by even twitter accounts twitter. Twitter twitter Great way to i think. Stay in touch with a fan base. That's out there that are interested in your experiences and the stories that bore your kids to tears. I work with robert mitchum and he was sober and when i realized because i started writing down all these people that i've worked with over the years that i've worked with this person i would with bill bixby. I worked with Sam fuller lee. Marvin just goes on and on and on and on a movie buff myself so we'll see where it goes i. I just liked the idea of being on with people and and being an enabler for what they want to hear. I'm not pushing the product corporately sponsored by this soft drinker. That and it's you. And i find that refreshing. I'm old enough to remember. Old school type shows where they have like an author with jazz musician. A stand up comedian and musical comedy star and they just opened up the florida. Talk like joe franklin or jacquard nowadays it. So you've gotta be pushed that clip you got out see you got a wedge in four and a half minutes gave commercial. There's nothing wrong with that that there's no there's nothing to can compete with that. I remember. I teach the talk show about ten years ago. I said it'll be set in my living room. Open up on me reading. Tv guy then. We'll go back. And all my guess would already be on my couches and playing my toys and they said who would you have on. I said well how. Paul wind chill. 'cause i love trivia quiz and don't get enough work anymore anybody's the cast of laughed and alan sues joanne. Worley on good with you know on she just up the street. You should have seen their faces. They were just appalled. Because i didn't mention one person that they had any interest in all talking to. I wanted riders artists rate airy housing. I'd love to have him do. And like i say you know unless you're in the latest spider man you get on talk shows so maybe this'll be the anti talk. Show talk show. I hope so. There's more would mark hamill from san diego comic con. Let's get back now to mark hamill had to tell you one performance. I thought before you joke that you do great but when you were the puzzle on the flash although the trickster tricks about that was it was a part where did a comedic side sadistic side. It was like all these. Things wrote an an disguises. And everything i love it. I know i was really hoping that with go. Had been picked gonna open up the second season with The trickster keeps up with mir master and captain cold. Captain boomerang up a mobile. I love those super villain team ups. They always follow up artist. Ego over lands the best. But when i lived about the trickster keep because he was schizophrenic. Every single time you saw me as a different character. He couldn't maintain a single character. So like you say in one character. He's kinda goofy and off the wall and other character. He's like scary. Grind your teeth psychopath. And i never physically. They always putting noses and wigs. Colored eye contacts. It was it was a dream. Come true for some of that. Always wanted to be a character actor and i guess that's why love animation animation so much is because animates early defines. What a character actor is if you can disappear and people don't think of you at and you lose yourself and the character there's nothing more sublime than that for an accurate because you don't have to take responsibility for yourself. You're you're just inhabiting the at somebody else and that's the thrill of acting. My brother is a doctor. And i couldn't have to academic. I could play a doctor. Yeah yeah but see. He still consider the success of the family science. Trump's the arts. Let's let's face it you know. Dr animal was always going to be better than some weirdo. That the trickster on the cloud. I took my dad to see The abor chase. I'd only been in the business about five years. But by that time i don. I don't know fifteen or sixteen guests thoughts. I had a television series with gary busey. And jack elam the texas wheelers who's four star wars and before but i'm i pointed that when i'm driving he was he's a career naval officer because it was really good he said you know something's on with you ever thought about going to law school. I would match dollar for dollar a professional for almost six years. And i thought i could level this guy telling him how much i made last year. I thought that's cheap. If you have to join me you've lost the argument. I just sort of felt badly that he couldn't be more happy. That i was doing something that made me happy because first of all he was upset that i didn't go into the navy and least even though my brother didn't go on at least use the doctor now that's that's that's capitol at a cocktail party. My some the doctor my son. The pod time active but mostly on unemployment guy. You know. I don't know i mean he's one of those guys where he watches fox news twenty four hours a day so we supremely misinformed about a lot of things that And so you have to say. I can't change him. he's that's the way he is. That's where he likes to be. And you know how the how the apple fell so far from the tree. I don't know. Did you notice stephanie. Miller's father was on the ticket with barry goldwater in nineteen sixty. Four william miller now and look at ron reagan junior very far from his dad and yet you have a succession of bush's that are all ideologically the same now.

It is a pleasure to talk with you and I'm been looking forward to this ever since way just connected. You know that there's just so much we could talk about because of this a project that is such a huge part of American. Well, I guess you could say even Global culture. I mean this thing is reach around the world. And so the original radio adaptation was first broadcast in 1981 and back. In those days you were doing stage acting at the time. Is that correct? That's correct. Yes. I played the leading role on Broadway in Dracula APA Frank langella and did that for over a year and I loved working in the you know, our country's resident Theatres because they're so varied in their approaches to producing plays and then also the theaters themselves very, you know, the little key we do lunch and then they're huge ones and I loved the surprising aspect of of working in different places. Yeah, like your locally we have the Orpheum Theater downtown Phoenix and that is just an absolutely beautiful beautiful theater. Yeah. Yeah. I've been in there. Yes, beautiful never worked there, but yep. Lovely. Yeah. Well, so how did you first hear about the Star Wars project? Well, it was one of those things where I just got a call from my agent and he said that if I was free I was being asked to do a radio adaptation of storm. I said what that is very strange and I guess I had met John Madden once brilliant brilliant director and said he must have been you know on a tight line or something like that, but it just sort of suddenly happened and a couple of days after getting the call. We we started it and it was just a just horrific great son Mark Hamill from the original film was in it then Terry King did dead. How long is solo and Carrie was terrific in that? So it was this something out of the norm for you to get asked to audition for a radio project or or what was that audition process? Like well, there was no addition. I just got called by my agent and they asked me to do it. I guess they must have been kind of dealing with a last-minute schedule or something. But I was asked I could do it and I did it was wonderful. It was a real Joy. Wow. Yeah, just call up and say hey we've got this roll for you. Come do it. Yes, exactly. That's all too rare in the theater and film business. So have you done any other radio projects before this month? Do you know what I I don't think I have I've done radio things but mostly it has to do with interviews and commercials for I was doing but it was a complete surprise and and of wonderful one, huh? That's that's amazing. So the so the film was released in 77 and the radio drama 81. Did you ever think that Star Wars would be such a huge cultural phenomenon as it is today, you know on one level I was I was completely surprised. It's just really the the global phenomenon is something that rarely happens in the world and on another level. It makes perfect sense. It just wage has that you know, the magic.

To Test Coronavirus Vaccines, UK Study Will Intentionally Infect Volunteers
"The British government is announcing it will back what is known as a challenge trialled intentionally exposing volunteers to the virus. ABC is Mark Hamill are joining us on the coma news line with the controversial approach to test the effectiveness of vaccine candidates. Tell us more about this mark. So exactly as you said, it's a trial where volunteers and they say they're only taking people 18 to 30. He who have a record of being healthy people where they're going to get a vaccine. They have not said which candidates or vaccine will be a part of this, but they'll get a vaccine and they'll be deliberately exposed to cope in 19 and quarantined in a London hospital. While they're essentially monitored by these researchers and doctors very closely to see how the vaccine and the disease progresses and to see how effective these vaccines are, and so Wow. It is a very controversial type of study because particularly in this case, some have likened it to giving someone a poison without an antidote, because if you develop a severe case of covert 19 There's not a whole lot of treatments and well proven in documented treatment at our disposal. Unlike perhaps if you test somebody this way on another disease, where we have a long history of treatments available, so there is some concern in that respect, but on the other side of this benefit Is that you can start to flush out with which vaccines are effective very quickly because you could start to monitor them right then and there. Plus, there's no need to worry about community spread because You know, typically in a criminal clinical trial, you give 30,000 people. Half of them had the vaccine half have a placebo, and you let them go about their lives, and you wait to see which ones developed over 19. Which ones don't and you start to measure the effectiveness of a vaccine that way this way, You're monitoring it right there, So there are some benefits in terms of the time and that's part of the reason that the government I decided to back this, but it's a controversial decision on the way. Some doctors say This is very helpful when there's very little disease in the community. But in this case, there's a lot of disease in the community. Yeah, that's right. Part of the benefit of this is is in general. You don't have to worry about that community spread exactly. We're talking about where in a clinical trial, you know you've got to send people out into there into the world, and they just Have to go about their lives, and you'll know that some people got it. And some don't and so to do that. So you have to know that there is community spread are particularly in this case with Kobe have to know that you know you're not sending 30,000 people out there and none of them ever came across. The disease. So in this case, obviously with Coleman in most areas in the US, the UK and Europe In a lot of cases that's not concerned with covert 19, but typically with challenge trials. That is one of the benefits If you could do a study anytime, anywhere, you don't have to worry about it. So that doesn't seem to be as much of an overriding factor in in the desire to do that, in this case because of the spread of Copan 19, But but one of the benefits is the faster results essentially in the data. Plus, I think one of the other things that the organizers of the study of said, is that not only can you squashed the time that it takes to figure out how effective the vaccine is, but you can also monitor how the body responds to covert 19 from They want versus somebody goes down. The world gets eventually get sick and maybe they see a doctor eventually, Maybe they don't You know so this because you're directly exposing somebody. You can watch them from day one. How the body reacts having these moves in the body all of these things, and so it's not just necessarily looking at the vaccine, but also can help the understanding of the virus. Itself again. Not without it concerns, though, because there's certainly a risk in this in terms of your willingly taking a dose of 19, and that's why they need to watch them so closely to minimize those risks. A veces Mark Remillard. Thank you, Mark. Thank you.

Apocalyptic Battle for Take-Out Dollars: Uber Eats Pits Star Wars against Star Trek
"A. From wondering David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Wednesday September thirtieth. It's hardly a stretch to say that the pandemic has been delivery services, best friend, take-out meals, or so much more attractive when we're avoiding other people that's meant a surge in revenue for leaders and Hungary rivals Uber Eats and door dash in the second quarter ubereats. Gross delivery bookings totaled almost seven billion dollars a jump of well over one hundred percent from q one. Before we all started eating in as a privately held company door dashes keeping a lot of data to itself but the number of people using dash doubled from ten million last year to twenty million now according to research firm Emarketer. Possibly, to Ubereats Chagrin Jordache became so ubiquitous that it was responsible for more than half of all US meal delivery in April. Wow. That's according to market researcher. Edison Trans last week linked in named DOOR DASH number two on its list of top fifty startups based in part on exuberant hiring plans. The companies expected to go public by the end of the year Uber eats holds about thirty percent of US market share despite their rapid growth neither door dash nor ubereats has yet turned a profit chew on. Then these rivals are employing ever more creative marketing strategies in their efforts to. Become or remain top takeout dog ubereats constructed a quirky ad campaign that celebrates competition itself a sort of Meta Mezei the latest ads featuring unusual rivalry between get this star wars and star Trek. They star none other than Mark Hamill Luke skywalker in star wars and Sir.

So amusing is that the argument tomato tomato is, of course from the classic George Gershwin. Song, let's call the whole thing off. But of course, neither UBER EATS NOR DOOR DASH is planning to call the whole thing off quite the opposite if takeout became essential in March, it's remaining.

Coronavirus: US passes grim milestone of 200,000 deaths
"The United States today reached a staggering unwanted milestone. 200,000 American lives lost to cope in 19 to break that down in another way that's like having the entire populations of Bellevue and Lacey Washington wiped off the map in the past seven months. ABC is Mark Hamill are joining us on the camo news line. With more on today's grim numbers. Mark, How did we get here? Well, there's a number of factors that has led the U. S. 200,000 dead. But I think many health experts would really point to three major causes that has led us to a country with 5% of the world's population. Tohave 21% of the world confirmed death from Kobe 19 and one of those things inadequate access to healthcare there 30 million uninsured people in this country. And that has particularly as we know Kobe 19 has disproportionately affected my minority communities, low income communities, and so that's largely or likely part of an axis. Inadequate access to healthcare Co morbidity, the CDC says. Six in 10, Americans have a chronic health condition. While we know the covert 19 is particularly worrisome if you have a chronic health condition, like diabetes or something else like that on Europe, more more of a risk of developing a severe complications. And then the final thing is America's. Inability to respond appropriately to be outbreak going back all the way to January and step you area, Trump said. The US back in February was the most prepared country in the world, and we were the US topped a number of lives in terms of preparedness for an outbreak in terms of our state of the art labs, heir stockpile our disease tracers, things like that. But we were caught off guard. No doubt by the fact that this spread with a symptomatically there were cases of people We didn't even know they were getting it from there. The slow adoption of lock down orders Airport tracing things like that screening testing being still inadequate even today, compared to what Admiral Brett, your law has said he wanted to see 50 million tests done a month by September will last month. We only did 24 million. So only halfway there, so there's a lot of factors and then I think one of the other one that continues to get mentioned mixed messaging from the White House and the CDC, particularly early on, they said. People don't need to wear that. Well, then they had to change that later that people should, and so I think that's all helped contribute to the fact that them and help get us to the fact that we have now

It appears to be in response to the C E Z, which said that the state should begin preparing for the possibility of Ah Copan 19 vaccine on November, 1st two days before the election seems to be in response to President Trump, who has suggested and tease that there may be a vaccine on the market prior to that special day as he put it, Thes Cos. Nine of them of these big pharma companies that are developing vaccines for co 19 have said that they will not rush the development of their vaccines for political purposes and beyond just saying that, though they said that they will not Seek approval for their vaccine candidates until Phase three trials have been completed. And that is the big final phase that all vaccines go through detested with tens of thousands of people. You make sure that it's safe to make sure that it's effective before you put it out widely on the market. And so these companies say they're not going to seek approval until that's done. There are three companies that are Producing vaccines right now in Phase three, and they are among the companies that took this pledge. Madonna, which is the U. S one that's being developed visor isn't in cooperation with a German company for development, and AstraZeneca, which has been working with Oxford out of the UK to develop a vaccine to those three companies have also said there's a taking this pledge and those are the Essentially the leading candidates right now in those faith retrial and the nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr Anthony Fauci has been weighing in on this worried about the term warp speed. Yeah, absolutely. And this all goes back to you know, the Trump administration can say that it's not political, but the timing of this right around November 1st or around the election. People to question whether or not it is and are we rushing things. Is it going to fast is developing a vaccine by the end of the mirror, visible and safe, Mrs. What Dr. Anthony Fauci was talking about Human New Yorker. The New Yorker quoted him as saying that he was never really a big fan of the term warp speed because it could be people to think that things are moving too fast and sacrificing safety. And the nine companies that took this pledge essentially said that the public confidence is the reason for this pledges. And then we're good. Does the vaccine do if people are not trusting it enough to take it? It won't do any good. And so that's why these companies have decided to take this pledge. And that's part of what Dr Anthony Douchey has talked about his concern here, an operation warp speed kind. Why still remain hundreds of millions of doses of the vaccine on the market By January, 1st. Dr Fauci again continues to say he expects to see one or more vaccines. In early 2021. The polls have really been startling. Haven't they mark on how few people say they will take the vaccine when it does become available? Yeah, that's right in the New Yorker article that quoted and spoke with Dr Anthony Fauci they talked about, you know, between a third and a half of Americans say that they wouldn't take the covert 19 vaccine even if it were on the market. Even if you were Readily available cheap and and or free. ABC is Mark Rommel, ARD. Thank you, Marc.

"Remember journalist Pete Hamel. He died yesterday at age 85 from complications following emergency surgery after falling and breaking a hip. Emma was described in The New York Times is the quintessential New York journalist, Times columnist Dan Barry once wrote. If the pavement of New York City could talk, it would sound like Pete Hamill. Hammel traveled the world and covered wars, including Vietnam. He was a columnist for the New York Post and the New York Daily News and served as the top editor at both papers. It was a friend of Robert Kennedy and helped convince him to run for president On the night Kennedy was shot. Hamel was one of the people who tackled the assassin. His many awards included a Grammy in 1976 for his liner notes for the Dylan album, Blood on the tracks and a George Polk Career award in 2014 for his lifetime contributions to journalism. And Hamels, New York Times obituary, Robert McFadden wrote Quote along with Jimmy Breslin, Hamel popularised a spare, blunt style in columns of on the scene reporting in the authentic voice of the working classes, he pounded out stories about murders strikes the world. Siri's championship fights, jazz or politics. And then got drunk after work with buddies in Greenwich Village, unquote. The first of the three interviews will herewith him was recorded in 1994 after the publication of his memoir, A Drinking Life, in which he wrote about the culture of drink. He was once part of And why he gave it up. When we spoke, he hadn't had a drink in 20 years. I asked him if he thought he helped create the myth of the hard drinking journalist. I don't think I created that myth, but I certainly inherited if it was one of the things that I I loved about the idea of the newspaper man in the abstract. I had seen all those newspaper man movies when I was a kid. The idea that you could hold your liquor and type of a new lead on a breaking story was one of the things that you wore like a badge of honor. S o. I suppose during the period that I was drinking. I I did help keep the myth going my own way. What kind of bars were good to hang out at when you were writing a story and what could you get from being in a bar when you were looking for leads? Well, the best Barda hangout and was one that had a typewriter on the premises, and I was not alone in having written stories actually in the basement of the Lion said. I think the best newspaperman bars were not inhabited only by newspaper man. But attracted politicians, hustler's of various kinds, actors, ball players, You know, a place that had an overlapping System. Of the categories that a newspaper is made up off wasn't just simply cops in the front of the paper, but it was the ballplayers in the back of the paper, the actors in the middle of the paper. And the politicians who, if they were not in handcuffs, was certainly at the bar trying to promote themselves into eternity. But say you were investigating a murder in a Brooklyn neighborhood. Would you try to go to a bar in that neighborhood and hang out for a while so that you could find out? Well, almost always. That was the way we operated in those days because New York at that time and I'm talking to the late fifties, the early sixties through Thie end of the sixties, really? When things began to change very quickly in New York at that time was a Siri's of Hamlets connected Hamlets, and the bar was still a major institution, along with the church in a political club and probably the police precinct. The bars were institutions in which people reveal themselves. Ah, most nakedly often so that if you were looking for information about someone In a story somebody who had been shot and killed or somebody whose kid had been shot and killed or a family that have been burned out by a fire. Whatever the nature of the story, Ah ah, the good neighborhood bar was probably the best source of information. How well did you write when you had been drinking? Well, I never wrote what While I was drinking. I had a couple of adventures with it early in my career where I tried to drink and then go into the office and do it and I could not do it. I could My fingers with smashed between the keys and nothing would come out. Drinking with newspaper man and I think with a lot of other people, too, is often done and most insidiously after work as a kind of reward. You figure I've really worked at the top of my talent eras hard as I can. Now I'm entitled, you know. And I think that's the in a way the most debilitating part about it because you continue to say to yourself. I'm not an alcoholic, that guy lying in the gutter with his shoes off. He's an alcoholic, but I work. I get up. I go to the office. I bring home a paycheck and I feed my kids, but I think there's Muchmore. Damaged on two people's lives. Two husbands and wives. The Children, too, to talent to to those who work out of a base of talent. By the functioning Ah drunk, the person who can get the work done and I was very careful. I never I never drove. I don't even have a driver's license until after I stopped drinking. And I never drank before I went to work on that. Probably prolong the life longer than I should have to. You're the kind of drinker who could say Well, I drink but I never miss a deadline. Yeah, exactly. I think the most dangerous people most dangerous myth about all of this. Is that But you have to hit bottom. In order to start on your way up on the people I knew who hit bottom never recovered. They were gone, had wet brain or they were dead. They succumb to all kinds of things that were not directly alcohol. Related, not liver diseases, but they died of pneumonia. They died of Bad habits, Basically, so you never brought him down know well that I never bottomed out in the sense that in the classical sense, I mean in this book I wanted to make clear. That I was not going to make this worse than it. Wasit was not about another lost weekend, our days of wine and roses in which you've got the DTs and you're seeing Richard Nixon in the corner covered with ants. If that happened, it happened while I was away. But I never got to that point. It's a book about getting to a certain point, realizing you're doing a lot of damage, even though you're having a lot of fun along the way..

He was a New York City tabloid crusader, and that made him one of the most influential figures in the city for decades. In 2011 Pete Hamill spoke with W H Y eyes. Fresh air. We came from a tradition where we were paid toe have opinions, but the opinions were based on the reporting. We had been there and looked at it whether it was Vietnam on Northern Ireland or the wrong part of town. Let's bring in NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik Hi, David. Hey, Stacey. So hearing Pete Mammals voice I feel like it tells us a lot about the man but describe him. If you will. Who was he? Cause you can kind of tell he was larger than life and casting unusually large shadow over his newsroom and over the profession, in part because it was New York and your cast such a shadow itself, but in part also was a very different agent journalism. To begin with Hamlet came from very modest beginnings. Born in Brooklyn, the son of Irish immigrants whose poor Catholic he was admitted to a very prestigious Catholic High school in New York, but dropped out joined the Navy kicked about a bit, became a cartoonist in newspapers. On, then joined the life for decades, in newspapers and outside newspapers, a heavy smoker, heavy drinker and self destructive ways that he chronicled in his telling memoir, a Drinking life. He also was are larger than life. His personal life. He dated the actress Shirley Maclaine. He didn't Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Linda Bronston lived large in the way that perhaps on Ly, a newspaper. Figure in New York could really pull off. Wow. Well, what kind of a record did he leave in journalism? Oh, he was hugely popular as well as hugely influential. He defined kind of the Big city columnist of his day, along with a handful of others Think of Jimmy Breslin, Mike Royko, Murray Kempton and wrote with Clear eyed compassion during years of tumult, starting Particularly the 19 sixties wrote about racial injustice, poverty, police brutality and corruption. Words and riots, Politicians and poppers. Ah guy who in his words Sato right to his working class readers because he respected them and spent time with them, rather than patronizing them from afar. And in thinking about her living beyond the news pages in his professional life as well. He wrote lyrically about Bob Dylan on Dylan's albums, liner notes in 68 he advised than Senator Bobby Kennedy on his presidential campaign. And when Kennedy was shot in June 1968 There was Pete Hamill, helping to wrestle his assassin to the ground wrote about national issues enough to be put on President Nixon's enemies list. He wrote about Donald Trump in the Central Park, five and as a tabloid editor for a stretch. He promptly went out to hire black and women journalists, at least to start to make up for lost time for profession dominated by white men. What do you think his legacy will be? Think of all the publications he wrote for the New York Post, The Daily News and Newsday. He sees the potential in a kind of tabloid journalism not purely defined by a supermarket gossip. He was a journalism that was brash, not cruel, kind of populism, defined not by the phoniness you might see on cable news outlets. Sadly, those tabloids air, not diminishing their size and ambition, his spiritually ours, I think or fewer and farther between them, one might hope that they do exist. Journalism's moved on. In other ways. NPR's David Folkenflik thinks David President Trump is attacking Democrats in an area where he's trying to win votes the suburbs they want to eliminate single family zoning. Bringing Who knows into your suburbs. Communities are grappling with how single family zone and can exacerbate racial inequity and climate change.

Hamel was 85 years old and you know, Sean, I'm just learning. It's news in the last few minutes. Before your newscast on DH sitting here with chills listening to that clip from the show. Pete Hamill was one of the most impressive journalists I've ever gotten to know, and it's somebody from an older generation. He was a real inspiration and the clip that you chose from all his appearances on this show. Was really at the center of it so good work on that because his reporting was on regular people and the politicians whose decisions affected them. He was sensitive across race and class lines. You know, we talked so much about the culture wars in this country. Pete Hamill developed the trust. Through his on the ground reporting of people in the white, working class and people of color, hyper local neighborhood reporting as well as he was, you know, very savvy on international issues. He lived much of his last years in Mexico. Um and he was the person returned to, I think more than any other in the first few years after 9 11 to have just that right tone on the anniversary of 9 11 To help me mediate the calls of people having you know so many feelings on September 11 2000 to September 11 2003 a number of those occasions. So Pete Hamill was really special. And, you know, having just learned about Hiss passing a few minutes ago. Ah, it's Ah, I just wanted to say a few words in the middle of the newscast since you brought it up. So here you go. Thanks, Brian.

That it can become easier not to ask these days, and that's fine for strangers on the street, especially as a positive side effect of wearing masks. That's a decrease in small talk. Maybe that's a good thing. But what about for close friends? I think part of what makes friendships complicated right now is that the story of life is changing faster than normal on if you haven't checked in a while. With even someone you consider a good friend. It can feel like a lot of emotional work to catch up so We wanted to a call in to check in on how your friendships are going in the time of Cove.

And so I wanted to begin by looking at the life of a Ubani Saddam when he says what are you ignore? The Obama who anemia sunny. A little while under Rohani And mentioned a you when he cool to his Lord Indeed. Adversity has touched me. And you are the most messy full Over the muscle said you by the Senate on this Great Prophet of Los Apparently Data. Who many of us have heard of many people love it? They love him so much that they named their children off to the U. Many many a UBIQUONOL massage school. It's families what was so great about this prophet. And what lessons can we take from his life now in in the Times that we're in this situation of where without tells us here in the NBA? He called on a loss of Hanoi Thailand and mentioned a you when he called his Lord. Indeed adversity has touched me. So you buddy. Saddam he says to us about Sapan Donna in Nima Sunny Doda. That has afflicted me something by this happened to me. Then also handle the data in the next Jeopardize the Hoof Akasha abby he indoor The Dallas so we responded to him and removed what afflicted him of adversity will add a now. Who who Miss American or Indiana where they could only live and we gave him back his family and the like there with them as mercy from us and a reminder for the worship of a law so you about this profitable east from the most beloved of creation to Those special human beings that were chosen by a lesson with due to the cleanliness of their hall due to day connection the commitment to a lesson and this great prophet. He's then tested. He's given test that. He can be Shaab that he can take because without a dozen tests. Us doesn't afflicts us with anything that we can't handle you live alone of sin in there was he had a wife. He had children. He added family. He had well he had looks. He had all these things he had a place in society and loss of handle what he tested Ubani Saga by afflicting him with a disease within a an ailment and this caused him to become repulsive to the people he's his skin was was covered in these In this disease and people when they saw him they were repulsed by his life. They didn't want to go near. And so for being this person who was wealthy family Mixed and went about his business went about society about with people as he as we do. He went from that to being somebody who no one wanted to be around. Nobody wants you to see. And he became almost completely cut off. He had His wife who remained him. And there's a evidence from That they were a couple of other people but apart from that you belie Salaam has lost that position that he had amongst you know. Just going about people mixing with them talking to them socializing with that He loses his family and he loses his wealth and of course he's lost his health. Now he doesn't in this area also says you will listen. He says to almost a Muslim. Hi Donna way you if neither a robot who anemic do. He says the. I've been afflicted with adversity. Are you ready?

There are those people who've Suffered the loss of livelihood in the same way as Saddam did there are those people who Who are losing family members? They themselves might be fine.

There is an inclination forms. You know in some of us for many reasons It may be because of our background. They may be because away from that when something bad happens when something difficult happens the first instinct is to turn to some of those bad things from our background so someone may tend to drugs. Someone may may tend to You know other things other things. I don't mention them in the fear that people think it's okay to time to these things Because it's not a loss without when he speaks about patients and that's why we're talking about.

Ireland Won't Accept an Atheist's New Religion Since He Was Once a Pastafarian
"Gotta take us meanwhile to Ireland the Great Republic of Ireland. Because I don't know if you know this but Ireland has a history with their religions in general the in Catholics Protestants. There's been some. There's been some dustups overtime. Okay They they they haven't necessarily all agreed on what what the right religion was. Well now the you know they. They like many places have to approve people who want to do things like you know minister and And and officiate weddings. That sort of thing and one person there A Guy who actually runs a podcast called the free thought profit podcast company. Name was John Hamill and he was talking about He. How public policy was favoring Christians? No shock there Specifically Catholics. He said so he. He said he was as a Pasta Faren. As a follower of the flying spaghetti monster he wanted to to have the same rights as a Catholic did and was denied summarily denied because the apparently the government of Ireland sees that as a parody religion not a real religion which I kind of. I'm okay like that's probably true. It's probably kind of counts as a parody religion anyway. Then he changed it up. He cited join a different. Religion stopped believing in his in the newly appendages of the FSM and went to a a a religion called the syncretic. Jesus Christ Church which apparently is a church that believes likes the teachings of Jesus just doesn't believe that he's real or divine or anything it's basically just. There's no supernatural stuff. It's just his moral teachings are pretty okay. And that's where they're at so he he reapplied for Status under that religion was dismissed was was told was rejected. The registrar general apparently deemed his His conversion vexatious really yes say basically yeah decided that it was with the word. Yeah very interesting. I guess they thought he was just taking the Piss when he decided that he got to change religions which is so funny because basically what they're saying is we get to decide if you are allowed if you're being honest about changing your religion. That is so bizarre. Yeah Melissa Matter Great Question. Why can't you just say look he? He says he believes the thing so done no problem. Let's just move along sound like you know you're worried that his his religion is going to somehow change everybody else's religion or whatever they just the the logic is missing. I think I think what's important here. Dan Is that it's it's it's really important to make sure that people They're sincere in in in what they're saying and I think that that is a very good role For for the government for government to take. No no this is this is this is i. I'm glad I'm glad she looked out for for this on this issue because you can also mess otherwise faster already. We know already that they test thoroughly and vet each and every priest and rabbi that comes through To to make sure that they are not also being vexatious about their their ordinations or whatever. I'm sure area. I'm sure that they have some sort of rigorous thing that they put people they can see into people's hearts goods true. Isn't that Nice?
Final Fantasy VII Remake demo is the first step in a very long journey
"The final fantasy seven remake demo is now available exclusively on PS and right now. The final fantasy seven remake demo leaked a few weeks ago but now the thing is real and officially playable on playstation four according to the demos description on the playstation store it covers the first chapter of the original game or cloud and his new friends bombed the Mako reactor. It's worth noting that downloading and playing the demo gives you access to an exclusive final fantasy seven remake. Ps Four theme which will be available on April tenth as long as you download the demo before May eleventh twenty twenty the easiest way to remember that date is that you will want to download it the day before my sister's birthday or if it's even easier to remember grab it from the store at least two days before. Piccolo Day which we all know is may thirteenth. The description also has two important qualifiers content in the demo may differ from the final retail version and progress made in demo will not carry over to the final game which is disappointing squirt UNIX is under no obligation to let the save file move forward. It's not an assumed thing when it comes to game demos at this point but I love when it's an option. I like checking out. Demos like this but when final fantasy seven remake actually releases. I'M GONNA be bombed that I will have to play through that whole section again. I am super thankful that this demo exists and by the time this podcast is on the Internet. You can actually go and find an archive. Were streamed it for an hour on twitch. I played through the whole thing might handle his kyle impersonator but I have to admit I'm a little surprised that the demo exists at all I think square INEX- basically committed millions of people to buying it just by announcing it was working on it. I don't think a demo will necessarily change anyone's mind but I'm really. I'm not complaining. I promise maybe outside of square just wanting to let people get their hands on it a bit after waiting for so many years for its release they they just WanNa set some expectations for how different. It's going to be for the original game so maybe the people download it. The super fans won't be blindsided by the changes when they take on the full game. Maybe that's the intention of the Demo narrowly sure by the way just Some quick impressions for the Demo. I really liked it. I wasn't pessimistic about the game by any means. It looks great and all the trailers and people that I trust that have played the remake have all had really nice things to say about it but even with high expectations going in. I really got into combat. It really feels like an action game but there is enough opportunity to pause things and slow everything down that there are still a lot of room for tactical decisions. Which is nice. It's also fluid moving into combat and out of combat scenarios. It really feels at least in the demo like a very smart middle ground between final fantasy. Fifteen and kingdom hearts as combat and. I like the combat in both of those games so Mike Excitement for final fantasy. Seven remake has only grown since playing the demo. And I I really don't have any install job for the original game.

road and really really Minnesota do you make a what happened last night with wise men in Memphis it looked like the NC double a it said he's an eligible we can't play and then what penny Hardaway's basically a court with him trying to overrule it at least in the short term what happened last night with Wiseman what do you expect to happen with him moving forward it's a great question I really feel like we're at a touch tone time in college sports and like the evolution is coming in there we're not quite there yet and nights like last night are going to be you know parts of pushing things there you know what what Memphis hit is really like a ridiculous rest but I called three or four eighty is that people you know who trade in that NCAA legislation space and they were pretty much a gap that after the NCAA said he's likely not eligible that they still that they still ended up playing him last night a lot of precedent actually an in state case law not that not to put him to sleep here within six eight o'clock but there is a there there's a lot of precedent for injunctions of that nature coming and then you know what what can happen if you do play a player in NCAA says you shouldn't play a player and so essentially what what members did was they went against the advice of the NCAA it is like trying to help them you know like it's not like that that the FBI or the secret service coming in in investigating you with the cooperative process so they basically that evidence we have we think it's likely knows when you should plan they went got the injunction and then basically like I feel like the members present just stuck his middle finger up in NC a and it's not an uncommon thing that we've seen if you if you look at if you look at situations that unfolded in the wake of a federal basketball scandal at campus at Arizona obviously Auburn you know there's been a there's been a handful of these of the schools where Ellis you actually want to wear or if they show that the evidence is has emerged and you know the the the people present based art come get us come punish us in in NCAA enforcement assortment competent so it's it's a fascinating tension in time right now and I mean look yesterday was a day where the potential number one pick in the NBA and NFL draft had eligibility issues and or or or in some way that they can't play now they were very different scenarios you know I'll state is essentially taking the advice and state holding out Tracy on whereas were the Weissman situation is different but you wonder what a touchstone moment god sure yeah two two best players in each of your revenue sports and they are either not supposed to be playing or not playing it's pretty ridiculous I look at it in the simplistic terms both schools could have afforded to not play their guy based on their opponent I mean Ohio state should win anyway I think they're forty point favorites and Memphis was play into the university of Illinois Chicago I mean it wasn't a necessity to have to get him on the court last night you know what well that's what made the the Memphis saying so baffling a lot of people is like Hey you I see wait for it like out of more concrete ruling com and then you can figure it out so I really feel like that was that was what had everyone so baffled last night but you know it's funny dancing at its core is a member driven organization where the members make the rules of the members are clearly showing they don't like the rules and obviously that name image of like the stuff that they broke within the last two weeks like we are literally a minute a time of dynamic change right now no question well enjoy the rest of your day down there obviously stay away from the booze and enjoy the football game later thank god it and can impede timely out who he is at Alabama LSU a game you can hear right here on the fan a game that's about four and a half hours away from starting three thirty kickoff a couple of undefeated match ups on a college football Saturday including the Minnesota painstaking we talked about which is at twelve noon we'll come back we'll get back your telephone calls at eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six with a lot of everything that a lot of next letter jets giants will but a jets and a little bit of this with the NC double a we can make some some baseball to obviously is the Yankees and Mets get ready to embark on what will probably be disappointing off season for both teams that's just my opinion Evan Roberts until one o'clock this afternoon combining home and auto with State Farm gets you a whole lot covered for less but the State Farm radio ad gets you this jam covered for free.
