Ali Velshi Is Worried About America's Decline in Democracy and Rights
"So I have to say, first of all, a lot of people talking already about the fact that the three major networks did not carry this amazing Biden speech. You've been in the media landscape for so long. What is your take on that? I'm deeply disappointed because I have, I'm generally speaking an optimist about society and politics. And I am so worried about this particular issue. This decline in democracy globally. I was overseas for a while during the Ukraine war. I was in Ukraine. And here in the United States, I'm worried that people don't register it, right? Democracy is really an abstraction to most people until, of course, they start taking away your rights and we start to feel like we're in handmaid's tale and voting changes and we don't trust our ballots. It's happening, but it's kind of like a slow flood, right? This democracy is getting flooded out and we're not seeing it. And I think when the president of the United States talks about actual threats to democracy that to journalists and to the public have been demonstrated by January 6th and so many other things, including a recent exploration of Mar-a-Lago where the president did untold things. And thank you for bringing a handmaid's tale, even though you do not have a vagina. I appreciate that. I spoke a few months ago before the ro leak with Margaret Atwood, and she said, you know, in 1985, when she wrote this thing, she said, people told her, this is just unrealistic. And she says, no it's not unrealistic. Women's rights are going to be taken away. It's going to happen in America and it's going to be on the basis of a theocracy and everybody said, there's no theocracy in America, abortion rights are entrenched. It's not going to happen. And yet when you read it, it's amazing that it's all happening. It's happening in ways that are so draconian. So when you ask people, you like abortion you don't like abortion. Some people like abortion, they don't like abortion. We're asking the wrong questions. Do you think women and their doctors should be criminalized for it? This is just an aspect of the way in which rights are being taken. Do we think the government should the government make that decision? Do you think the president was affected was a bunch of historians that were just warning him about this that we are literally losing democracy in the future? And so when the president wants to talk about that issue, then I think we should be listening to that issue.
New Founding's Matt Peterson on Justice Alito, Christian Nationalism
"With us right now is a great American patriot cofounder and general partner of new founding and also the president of American firebrand super PAC and friend of the show. Matt Peterson Matt, welcome back to the program. Hey, it's great to be here, Charlie. So Matt, I want to get through a couple news items here. But first, I want to play a piece of tape here from justice Alito's speech. I think he gave it in Rome, which is super scary 'cause that's where the Catholic Church is headquartered and not allowed to do that. And I want to play cut 94 here. And the way the media has responded is a new line of attack that you can see in kind of the smart coordinated circles, the people that are considered to be smarter than not. However, they are all kind of coordinating their attacks around Christian nationalism, play cut 94. Over the last few weeks, since I had the honor, this term of writing, I think, the only Supreme Court decision in the history of that institution that has been lambasted by a cold string of foreign leaders. Who felt perfectly fine commenting on American law. One of these was former prime minister Boris Johnson. But he paid the price, Matt kind of mocking Boris Johnson there, Sam Alito, who I think is the best thing George W. Bush ever gave us, probably my favorite member of the court. They're attacking him as being a Christian nationalist. What do they mean by that, Matt? Well, in their minds, of course, they think Christian nationalism is a smear. They think both of those words are bad. And if you put them together, it's too bad things. And that's one big bad thing, and it's a scary monster, which I think in their minds means something like handmaid's tale and enforced Christian religion. They think it's racist too, somehow they seem to only regard whites as Christians, interesting. But white people who are Christian controlling the country and shoving their views down everyone else's throat is what they mean by it. And the hilarious thing here is that neither of those words are bad and when you put them together, you actually get what I think millions of people throughout the country think is normal.
"handmaid" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"Go to X chair OA dot com. Art Andrew, let's move on to our second main story today, which is the equality lawsuit trying to challenge Florida's don't say gay Bill. Now that bill's been signed sealed and delivered. I mean, that's law, right? Yes. It is law. So this was filed last Thursday, right? As we went to press and fortunately, I was able to go through it. We're going to use our usual opening arguments, read it backwards method and that begins. So this is a lawsuit bringing 6 causes of action for declaratory judgment and relief declaring that HB one 5 5 7 is invalid unconstitutional and seeking permanent preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, preventing it from going into effect. So, let's start at the signature block. The signature block is Roberta Kaplan, Kaplan hecker and Fink LLP. And if you're thinking, why do I recognize that name Roberta Kaplan? That is, E Jean Carroll's attorney. Oh, yeah. More so than being, you know, one of the most prominent women's victims survivors rights attorneys. She was the lawyer who argued the case that got the defensive marriage act declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court immediately before the obergefell decision. So she is, if you want an equity lawyer, you want Roberta Kaplan. She is the absolute best in the country at litigating these kinds of cases. So, you know, not a cracking lawyer. Not somebody who's about to be disbarred. There are 6 counts here, 6 causes of action, arguing that this Florida don't say gay Bill is unconstitutional. The first two, in my view, are very, very strong arguments. And I'm about to explain why. The next four, I will evaluate. You bring all of them. You muster every arrow in your quiver. But Thomas, you want to kind of pitch the question to you. One of the things that was viewed as a strength if you are evil of the Florida don't say gay bill that required us to kind of parse it carefully on this show is that the language is super wishy washy, right? It says. Yeah, well, you know, what we don't want is for teachers in K to three classes to present material that is inappropriate for the age of the right and at no point the branding is don't say gay Bill, but at no point in the legislation does it use the typical demonizing words. Homosexual and same sex attraction and it just says, no, we're doing educational standards. And they've done that on purpose. So how would you go about approaching a law that is sort of deliberately hiding what its true purpose is? Can you legally get them to say what the hell they mean? Can you get like a declaration? Can you sue to have them say like, what will actually? Or can you say that it's unconstitutionally vague? One or the other. You pretty much have identified the first two strategy. All right. In the first two causes. It doesn't matter what if I got that bar question right, we're saying credit for that. I got one out of Theresa. Mark it down. Market 8. So count one is an argument that the statute is unconstitutionally vague. And I want to tell you, this is typically a very, very tough ground upon which to win. A lawsuit, unless there is a very good fit to the facts, unless a law is unconstitutionally made. That would be the one time where, but it violates the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment if a law is so vague and think about it this way. If you don't know exactly the conduct that a particular law prohibits. An ordinary person using maximin reasoning is going to want to avoid the worst case outcome. And so you're like, all right, I don't fully know what this is, but I'm definitely not going to do anything that might arguably come close to this because I don't want to be arrested. I don't want to be fine. I don't want to run afoul of the law. And that logic is in First Amendment jurisprudence, is called chilling effect logic. And the idea is, even if the core restriction is somehow legitimate, if we don't know what you can and you can't do, you err on the side of, all right, not giving arrested. Which means that the effect of the law is to prohibit a whole bunch of legitimate speech as well as it's a chilling effect you might say. Yeah, exactly. So paragraph two O 5, it just expresses this really, really well. House Bill 1557, prohibits classroom instruction by third parties on sexual orientation and gender identity in K through three and otherwise in any context where it is not age appropriate and developmentally appropriate in accordance with unspecified state standards that may go into effect long after the law does. These key terms are all ambiguous and undefined. The vagueness of these terms has a chilling effect on the behavior and speech of students and then sort of goes through because they're unable to determine what the law does and does not prohibit. They're uncertain about what they're legally able to say and do in class. And they hesitate to speak or participate in class out of fear of violating the law and facing discipline at their school. Roberta Kaplan's case will be strengthened here by the real life example of the student in Florida who was suspended by handing out little rainbows. That was literally all the kid did after class was hand out little rainbows. Yeah, those aren't age appropriate rainbows are some mef adult stuff. Every girl listening who had a Lisa Frank notebook in middle school is now going, wait a second. Is unicorns on the list too? No, you know..
"handmaid" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"Course of action right here is for you to terminate this pregnancy, but we can't provide you with that necessary medical care because of Texas law. There's a part in here where they're saying they didn't even want to talk about it. The doctors were like typing stuff on the phone and showing it to them. So they didn't say the word abortion. When we say handmaid's tale, I mean, not literally, but like it's not that far off. You've got doctors acting like they're spies in the Cold War to communicate with their patients, the best form of care. It's unbelievable. Yeah, the doctor in this article spoke to NPR on the condition of anonymity because you have this bounty hunter situation that incentivizes people to read articles and then go file their lawsuits. This was talking about how do we get somebody who is facing a potentially deadly infection to a place where she can receive medical care as quickly as possible. Oklahoma and Arkansas were closest but have a three day waiting period, not to buy a gun. But a three day waiting period before you can procure an abortion. So two options, New Mexico, or Colorado, and the family said, you know, would we rather her going to labor on a plane or have to drive out there by car and the doctor said, West Texas is 8 or 9 hours of desert, sometimes you have hours with no cell phone reception, no gas station in the middle of a medical crisis. So I requested she take a flight and make it a direct flight, if possible. This is ridiculous. This is a maddening. I know I sent you this, but I forgot. And now I'm, I forgot how bad it was. It's hard to even keep it in your mind how horrible this is. They put a woman who was miscarrying on a plane. And look at this quote, but even through tears, Anna says she knows she was lucky to have several $1000 in savings to cover the cost. And to get an appointment in Colorado at all. Why do we do it? And I want to emphasize that last bit to get an appointment at all in every court filing in connection with Texas HB 8 and related laws, the United States government has documented the effect that this law has had on every state that borders Texas and that it will have now on every state that borders Idaho because pregnant individuals flee the jurisdiction drive to nearby states that already likely have heavy restrictions on when you can procure an abortion and now these clinics in those states are now understaffed and facing two times three times four times the number of patients. And so you just get this cascade effect where not only is this terrible in Texas, but it has indirectly affected the rights of women and others who become pregnant in Arizona. Like in Oklahoma, in neighboring states. That didn't pass these laws. This is horrifying and this is the tip of the iceberg. The reason we're talking about this is not to scare you as not to cover a horrible story. Well, you should be scared a little bit. It is to say, this is the landscape that is about to be set when you see neutral sounding words of a 6 three conservative supermajority in a couple of months declaring that roe V wade and Planned Parenthood versus Casey are no longer good law and that there is no right inherent in the right to privacy to make medical decisions about whether to remain pregnant. They will say, look, we have already seen this from concurrences filed to date in the actions by the Supreme Court on the shadow docket to up to decline to issue injunctive relief to stop this law from going into effect. We have seen the pitch that Brett Kavanaugh that Neil Gorsuch are going to try out, which is well look like we're just going to send it back to the states, and you know, the states are laboratories of democracy and this is what happens when you let states be laboratories of democracy. It means if you are a middle class woman in the middle of your wedding who is in the process of miscarrying who is at risk of sepsis infection possibly death, you can scrape together the thousands of dollars you have in savings and maybe get a flight into a nearby state and maybe get an appointment with another abortion clinic. We do our work with the puzzle and the thunderstorm and the cognitive distance guys for modest needs half the country can not afford an unexpected $500 bill. That is 50% of the population right now has zero savings, not enough to cobble together a direct first class flight at a moment's notice to go from the middle of Texas to a nearby state that has fewer restrictions. This is the burden of this is going to fall disproportionately on ordinary Americans, and it's just Ted Cruz can go to the cancun, you know, whenever he wants. This will never affect Ted Cruz's family. It will never affect the people who vote for this. It will only affect real people. So I'm sorry for getting my degree that Ted Cruz is not a real person and I'm glad you finally said it. Yeah. Can we just codify roe? Can we codify row? I know we've got the worst Democrats to Democrats that are stopping us from stuff. But what are their views on that? I mean, would they really not codify row? I certainly would introduce that legislation and if there is something that is worth breaking the filibuster over, it'd be a hard argument. Yes, so as far as I know, Joe Manchin kyrsten sinema are pro choice. We have the usual suspects in Susan Collins, who says that she's pro choice. In Lisa Murkowski, who says that she's pro choice. Let's make them vote on it. But the answer to that question is, absolutely, the federal government could say we have a compelling interstate commerce need to protect this fundamental right of reproductive freedom. We have authority and jurisdiction because medical services occur across borders and could 100% supersede each and every state bill like Texas HB 8 and could they bulletproof that with the jurisdiction stripping stuff. Those shenanigans. Put an asterisk by that. We need to do a deep dive on jurisdiction stripping. It is not as simple as just you put in the law of the supreme can't review this because think of that would be a get out of jail free card. Yeah, you could take any, we take Texas HB 8 and make it a national Bill, right? So there's a question of, is the jurisdiction stripping? Does that interfere with fundamental individual liberties? Now, here it would promote rather than restrain that. But it's a complicated question, and we deserve our own episode on that. But 100% that provision should be written into the Bill, and you just write in the standard provisions of the bill the severability provisions, right? That says, if any provision of this legislation is declared inoperable by virtue of being unconstitutional, including without limitation, the jurisdiction stripping provisions, then the rest of this bill shall survive and shall be in full force as if that additional provisions had never been added to the act. So it is not hard to protect against the court invalidating the jurisdiction stripping provisions. And like I said, we'll have more on that later. But yeah, I understand democratic funk and malaise, but you are correct that there are opportunities for our party to tee up issues that they care about and kind of put it front and center. And it feels like Democrats are sort of demoralized and beaten up and aren't always out there fighting the good fight. And so, you know, if you've made that accusation of Democrats before, I feel you. We're not chills for doing nothing. That is precisely the kind of thing that legislators should be teeing up right now and make the other side declare where they stand. Because we know where they stand. Yeah, get caught trying more, I.

2021 Emmys: Winner Predictions for Outstanding Drama Series
"Let's talk about some of the nights. Toughest categories the emmy for outstanding drama series goes to margin. Which show do you think is going to take it. I hate to be so predictable. But i honestly think the crown i know. Aaron doesn't like it which tells me it's the only thing we've ever really disagreed on show. Well written is so well active. It's so well depicted. You get a sense that you are in one of the most iconic and well known families and what they have gone through so i just think that. They deserve their roses. I'm not gonna say fully dislike it with the full. Stop a man. He just hasn't evolved yet. Let me let me let me. Give you the pallet cleanser. You need less fresh. let's night. I will turn you onto the crowd. I'm gonna make sure that. I took four naps that day. Prior and then i'll be fully energized and ready. And maybe maybe i should do it post pregnancy so i really don't falsely anyway moving on as we're snoozing on the and made stale like handmaid's him when they're up for a nomination they take it home. They sweep in many categories. So i'm just excited that they're back on this platform to again. Really good picks. I'm leaning more towards handmaid's tale because it was so action packed. And i felt like elizabeth. Moss's directing debut was unbelievable. However we love to give a sendoff. We love to give a proper send-off pose this final season. The cast the story lines. What was written on that paper and what came to screen was so unbelievable. Right and it was life imitating art and art imitating life with billy porter storyline. So i think if you weren't oppose fan when you heard it was a final season. I feel like a lot of people got into it and i think they're going to be able to take it and they did already take home. Some creative arts emmys. the word drove. I mean it was to die for. That show was fully entertaining. You went through all the fields with that so don't really anyone's game. Yeah really out out of all three of those. It really could
Texas Law That Bans Abortion After About 6 Weeks Takes Effect
"Texas law banning abortions. After six weeks went into effect yesterday law prohibits abortions wants cardiac activity can be detected an embryo which very early the law also allows. This is sort of twist allows private citizens to sue abortion providers and anyone else who gives who helps a woman obtained an abortion in texas including even an uber driver who might have given a woman a ride to the clinic. The law makes no exception for rape or incest. The supreme court refused to block. The banner has now materializing a huge threat to roe versus wade. So what do you think under his eye. Where are we in the handmaid's to be the fruit. Blessed the fruit. It'd be fruit here not to joke about something so serious but let's not but to joke but not joke tweeted something yesterday And that is this that why men think they have something to say as much. They think they want to say about this when their contribution to the reproductive process last six or seven seconds. Maybe eight if it's been awhile and women for the next nine months and then feeding the baby breastfeeding afterward do all the heavy lifting all right. This is this. Is the women's show here and men want piece of this action like they've got something to say here it's dictatorial. This is i think janet jackson said it. Best in the first five seconds for in nineteen ninety-six smash album control okay. This is a story about control. Okay like it's about power and control. This is full handmaid's tale. That's one thing. The other thing as it relates to roe v. Wade as i understand roe v wade in nineteen seventy-three also texas with the same issue the supreme court as i understand it felt that texas's laws or whatever regarding abortion violated a woman's constitutional right to privacy about privacy. So what is it about this new situation. That is also not a violation of privacy.
Donna Barrow-Green, Creator and Producer at Illuminus Audio Productions, on Episodic vs Serialized Fiction Podcasts
"So what makes a fiction. Podcast literary most fiction. Podcasts are somewhere between episodic in syria. You can jump in on any episode and you won't be totally lost. Each episode has a problem a story like a story of the week and that problem is usually solved by the end of the show. Saint characters say world likely of protagonist has a super objective and their subplots plots yet. The story is not usually bound by a larger plot. Structure serialized literally podcasts. On the other hand are sequence and have to be listened to it water as the story builds listeners. Make an investment for the big payoff in reveal at the end. You have a problem with conflict in every episode that engages the listener but these subplots are leading up to a bigger story arc. Consider the tv show matinee. This is a good example of episodic show with evolving plots. Now compare this to handmaid's tale. This story is serialized. Deep investment in the characters theme and most of all the story long form fiction podcasting tells the story that evolves and develops along one narrative structure over the course of a set number of episodes. The most important one of the most important things to understand is that the listener must be invested in toronto in pretty early on for them to stick with the whole show. A plot grain was a good way to look at the difference between episodic in literary serialized stories so literary fiction podcasting here on the bottom is long form meeting the are carries over episodes for one a bigger story. Similarly audiobooks follow long-form but they do not stray from the rhythmic pros the way scripted literary fiction podcasting deaths the literary elements which. I'll be talking about in the context adapting long form. Fiction are addressed through southbound mood and

"Over we we know that it mirrors the real world on through the themes. That bruce's is putting on the pages for these characters in their journey. And so i think that really really resonates and an emotional. I have to say i don't get quite the pit in my stomach. Idid did before november of twenty twenty. That i used to watching butter. Katie we also we all sleep better at night. No really. I was always like a and i don't quite feel that level of intensity anymore so i'm happy for that but i think in many ways The intersection of real life and vision. And the rancor that was happening in this country did create the perfect i think backdrop for this story which would have been compelling on. Its own but i think it. Just it heightened everything you felt watching this story on built folsom muira have you when you think about like damn. This is a good show and this is why. What do you bank. I guess i can speak to what i respond to. And there's something about the camera being so close on an actor speaks. Show that really. Almost i feel are appearing into some of these people's souls Things that lizzie or amanda or lexus. Subtle things with there is a twitch of the upper lip things like that. Have you see. I feel like deeper into their story. What is going on with that character. That i think the i think you're right like sometimes i watch you all and it's so subtle and yet it tells me so much about what you're feeling and i guess that's the sign of of truly great acting so sam. Let's go to you while. I think you're hitting on something. It's the specificity of the show. That is so marvelous. And i was struck here. We are ten episodes into this fourth season. And i had. I was having a conversation with our costume designer. And that conversation carried over to joe and the conversation was about not only what we're doing in scenes but how does how does what we're the story. Were telling a with a art. How is that to be received by our audience. Are we telling the right message. And that the actors in the kospi designers and the writers of course that we're all still tuned into bat after four seasons. You know that's the thing. I'm most impressed and moved by on our show. It's that we're still trying to figure out. How do we do. Good i mean is what we're doing the right thing sort of like the integrity of the story right really important to you. Ot how about you. is there anything. I'm jay what the me is. I feel like what what bruce To do the right team is just great. Something where on into pass level of people relate to the trauma Unequal relationships between one. Month's boston one. What's partner wants was sold shoe but then on a on a larger level shuttering and saying that you know if eames of what's going on in the world and patriarchy inequality and regimes which are based on populism in fear. I think i think a lot of the audience. What's going on in their lives in their own homes also out in the world and i think that's what great does your reflects back to your experience or is i think the writing screen say that i think for me the best thing especially this season is to see to see what a lot of what we do is try to create space to these people to do their jobs to do their jobs without worrying about the. They're not worrying about something about the story. they're not worried about it. Someone making sure that we're not you know making Horrible moral choice and so This season by creating a a bubble hopefully allow them to not be in a coded world to exist that way and expand to the whole cast and crew as as these guys were saying. I think we're we're a collection of storytellers in the more we are that in the more everybody's encouraged Better off we are. But when i watched the show i i like that. It's made with care and respect that you know. It's made carefully and respects the abilities of all the people involved and tries to bring those abilities to the four so that that's what i like about. It is is that you can tell that the graft service people care when you watch the. Let's end with you lizzy. I told i told lizzie before we started that. There's been a lot of elizabeth moss in our home because my husband had never seen madman. So we've been watching all of madman and all of him as tales. So i feel very comfortable Looking at you right now. You're in our bedroom every night But when you think about what makes what makes us series works so beautifully and you've been so fortunate to be a part of it what comes to mind for you Kind of what. Amando is an bruce was saying. I i feel like you know what what you see where you end up seeing in the episodes looks polished and we've made decisions and it's specific and and that's it you see that our television and i think people obviously don't see and shouldn't see are the nine million emails and calls and late night calls early morning calls conversations and all of the work that goes into creating these episodes and everyone cares so much every department every actor every person cares so much and we've all been in this business long enough to know that it's not always like that and some people can just come to work and clock in and clock out and that's also fine but We'd somehow of assembled a group of people who not fine and everyone gives so much of themselves to their role. Whether it's an acting roller another role on the show. And i personally think you can feel that and i think you can. You can see it. I definitely and i just want to say. Congratulations for another extraordinary season of the handmaid's tale. And i can't wait to see what comes next. Even though i'm a little thank wall so much. And thanks for spending this time with me to.

"During the season. I think we all did. There was so much more to explore will will. These characters can be very opaque right. He's a so spy on spy spy and at the same time i see him through rose tinted lenses enough. Always been quietly hoping that is moral. Compasses in the right place. And i was very relieved this year. The the true north seems to be having the right direction and just echo what everyone is saying. I think you know getting to work lizzy as filmmaker pushed all of us you know. I think it's the best work. I've got shot She had a way of extracting something from austin's really exciting and there was a joy to cal. I wanna have you talk a little bit about playing someone and i may be von. You could chime in on someone who is just so awful and so evil and short talking about the same character. And and i don't know does that start to kind of permeate your your psyche a little bit and Just compared to many of your other roles that you've you're such a distinguished actor what has been light to to play someone Someone like this. Who completely has lost his humanity. Along the way i feel sometimes I've been cautious of dashing leading guy and i feel in some ways i feel like A character actor trapped in lady body. And so this. This actor allows me to sort of get into an area wouldn't normally be constant So relished that But i don't. I haven't relished as people might reddish playing nasty people. I haven't reddish actually that part of his psyche because it's something. I'm.

"How the commander evolved. Well i I love the idea that he goes through the joanie and ends in place of redemption seemingly. And how paradoxical that he might get to that place of clarity even if it's momentarily and have snatched away somewhat in the finale but it was. It was lovely for him to come face to face. Not so enjoyed that same with lizzie. Way he he apologizes. You know parts of that apology. Which a genuine. And that's parts of fred old fred. But there's still parts of this sort of predator inside all of that apology as well. In sort of reclaiming the narrative in his own predatory fashion but It was lovely to go on. That journey in the season is really about bad about relinquishing and reflecting What can can this characteristic. Change his spots side out no but But he came close which was really lovely to be invited down that road but about for you yvonne. Did you envision sort of what that moment would be. Like for serena kind of allow. Don't just because she's you know. Having this moment with june. I don't necessarily believe she asked come full circle. You know. i think she's just so she just goes from moments moment kind of figuring out what's going to be the most ideal situation from right now and her ideal situation is that she doesn't want to have the stress in the regrets or any kind of of what she's been doing with. James is old time. I feel i can. So what's convenient for. Her is to apologize and beg for forgiveness. And although i do think there is a huge element of truth in it. I don't know that it comes from that. Genuine plays of. I genuinely feel horrible. For what i did. I think it's more. I just need you to forgive me so i can have a comfortable pregnancy. You know what i made. So it's itself. I i kind of feel that way. I don't know i'd be interested to hear avid that. That's that's how. brisk chime in a well i can. People don't change very much or very easily. And i think people change quickly and easily ad television but what about says its exactly right. You know. It's in the moment we make lots of decisions that we say lots of things but as human we don't change that quickly and and i think the show is frustrating in the same way that people in our lives are frustrated that they don't change quickly enough and that more people don't get out of north korea but those things are complicated parts of the real world and as much as we'd like lawrence and and the characters that vaccine to be on edge warrants video of honor. Everybody i guess. Joe you want them to pick the good side and and get toss away the bedside but there is no such thing and it doesn't happen and they are who they are and and you know i don't know very many people who have you know truly had kind of regret in their life for the things that these people have gone. I don't know that there's enough regrets in the to muster. So and. I think i don't know there was a scene. I wish i had written down what you said about what had been taken away and the power of men and sort of systemic issues with gender and sexism. I don't know that really resonated with me did that. Are you in the middle of sometimes saying your lines and thinking. Yes i i feel what june feels about the state of the world all the time all the time whether or even just stem sometimes globally but also sometimes just on on a personal level. She's such a personal character to me And i've put so much of myself into her and at this point is a great thing that happens when you're on a show for awhile which is the Relationship between you and the writers and the show runner becomes very fluid. And you know at first. You're doing what they are writing. And then there's sort of writing to what you're doing and it kind of goes back and forth in this in this wonderful way All the time all the time and sometimes other characters to will say things that i that really really resonate with me You know lawrence often when speaking about june it resonates with me. I learn a lot about june from the other characters. Whether i'm in the senior. Not madeline lemme ask you about janine because She has quite an adventure in this this season and we learn a lot more about her backstory. Which i really appreciated and enjoyed. And i'm curious if you did as well and how it impacted the way you played her from that moment on. 'cause i who knew yeah i mean i tried for so long for the first three seasons relate to not make any real decisions about who i thought was because i knew that eventually we would find out and i wanted to be able to soak up. Anything that russert. Jc who who written the episode. I wanted to just kind of fully embrace that and I was really glad very very proud to be able to tell this kind of story. The story line for janine the relationship the relationship between union janine and just everything it just colored so many things for me to get this back story in that confrontation between june janine. Everything just kind of became a little brighter to me. about janin's he's always been like a big part of my life and my heart and she disliked she's tattooed in there now. Really especially after this Doing that episode and episode five as well. It's interesting bruce. How you the writers and you and everyone who's putting this together how you figure out when you tell a back story of character. I know i really enjoyed hearing more about serena and what she was like before gilead became gilead. And how do you determine who's pastor whose history you're going to mind and and and why i think we'd mine everybody's if we had the time i mean You know they're all stronger. Extraordinary actors. Were curious about their back stories. And i think that Mattie as much as she was trying not to decide as lizzie was saying mattie was telling us all the writers wet janin's backstory was over the last three years slowly So she was making a decision but You know. I think all the baxter's and from the response from the audience are super appealing and satisfying. I just wanted to say this year particular under cova Mattie talks about that that episode. Like it's normal episode. That episode was incredibly difficult undercover and the nine scenes we had of her in the past ended up being three scenes and everything changed all the time and she was an absolute professional and also managed to get as much out of the story as we would have gotten him a longer version in the shorter version. And that's attesting to to her and christina the director and everybody else It was a remarkable performance under under normal circumstances. This remarkable this year. I t breathtaking. What she was able to do. So i in in.

I mean this show. You know my campaigns tale. It's smart enough to know that it's like time to end it. It's like their season. We're going around seeing that avenue more and it's created such a great launching pad for all these cool actors Also still love the balls. I'd love hearing the ball.

Because i got a bunch of things i watch mitchell's the mitchell mitchell's versus the machines mitchell's versus that machines. There's another macho. With the machines versus the mitchells the machines versus mitchell's anyway it's on netflix's long enough flex. This is a sony animated movie from the same creative team that brought us into the spider versus movie which we both loved. This movie is not as good as that movie. But it is god damned delightful. It started off and i. It's kind of a humdrum like making fun of big tech like whatever varies well trodden way. There's an artificial intelligence on a phone. That's sort of takes over machines. And there's a family that's basically battling the machines in the post apocalyptic world but it's all very cuddly. There's an adorable dog that i think you would enjoy a lot. The nicest thing about this. Which i didn't totally see coming was the main character is queer coded through most of the movie. I kind of had little rumblings. That's funny when you have this run wings like does this curfew. And there's not a it's not a love story so they must be a queer character. Which tells you a lot right there but it was also refreshing not to deal with a love story in a movie like this and the end it sort of makes a canon and it's done very sweetly and she's the one the film and i just really arrow of the film and i liked that it did that. It's cool that's i mean. Honestly it's our first queer mainstream like animated movie hero that i can remember at loved to somebody. Tell me i'm wrong but it's it's very cute. It's a very frantic riffing on tiktok kids making videos really quickly and ream bows pooping out of people's butts. And like just sort of like hyper kid. Energy and creativity which.

"It just feels like we down for poppy matter what he doorbell. Here's my question. it's funny the first episode was like what is the state of the ball scene and so i moved to new york in ninety three so this is set year after. I imagine. you're clearly. I was stupid. White boy didn't really know much about the balls beyond pairs burning. Anyways probably did not harlem. The like several years i lived in new york But is was your sense in that first ball scene was almost kind of a small brick lined room with the lights turned up too high is like and much fewer people i was like. Oh is this. I think that's on the ball scenes restaurant that's why they're offering cash for prizes trying to get people in. I think that was on purpose. Cova dang i think it was. Yeah it was like. Oh that's interesting. Like how does the scene was a very robust kind of seen shrivel or fainter. And how does that. What does that look like. And i think season is grappling with that after watching the second episode. And that's super interesting. So i hope they pursue that i mean. Can you talk about here. This is where i will tie back into. Handmaid's tale the unending aids suffering death. And it's a little more justified here because that's what people in the early nineties who were survivors of aids in that world. We're dealing with constantly ran. There's no way to present. That didn't happen or sugarcoat. It and i do like that. It's sort of taking taking a look at the toll. That's taking on those characters prey just being like plugging and i'm gonna drink. Yeah but it's hard to watch. It's just like an index like yeah and you know we've had this conversation before and again the tale is the tale is and the history is what it is and people have the right to be justifiably super angry and to have it be need to be talked about. Just like the tuskegee airmen. All of this stuff. This is all real but so off much like lovecraft country and needing to scenes of joy. There is so much of this being the only tale you get in the gay world then the gay storytelling and specifically in yeah and specifically exactly and so it's having to endure it over and over again and knowing the beats are coming. This is like watching anything that takes place shortly before nine eleven. And you just know it's coming and you're going to take them off and it is hard to keep doing hit. It doesn't take anything away from the real for me. It doesn't take anything away from the realness of that time. Mainly because i was aware of it but to not keep doing only the pain over and over and over again you know what i mean. There's i know we were young but we were there. And it wasn't the only part of our life. I was certainly aware of it. I certainly had friends and family affected by it. I was certainly afraid and sad and experienced it. But that wasn't the only thing that was happening. And we don't have to just plod along in that funeral song of this tale and over and over again i do have a hunch that the second episode especially about sort of moving on from that. And that's and i'm hoping the rest of this season's going to be about absolutely thank. Blanquita is gonna become a trans activist. I really don't. I think building to this. But there's some really. There's some good stuff. The second episode is better than the first nice food fights Into blunkett's love life a little more kindness candy..

"But it seemed like people are feeling like it's not going far enough really really dealing with it but i also mike why like. Why are they war. Like i know. We'll get further into that but it's sort of like often wars you know obviously about money but it's also about otherness and so there's lots of stuff that i'm curious to see where it lands but i'll put it there and i want more monsters. I will also say that some of the wire their war stuff in the show is different than the wire. They were stuff in the books. There's a whole. I'm not going to get into that. There's a whole different. Yeah we'll talk about it when you watched a former. Also i will say i've mentioned this to you and you keep telling me i'm crazy but i've heard it now in tube odd gas okay. We're like i can't tell which places which because they look exactly thank you but they are the same countries that they would look the same. Yeah how long does it take to cross the fold. Here's a it depends on how willing you are to get eaten by volker. I mean not. Very long at a brisk john john. You saw them do that in the fate of the train. The train when they go over so twenty minutes thirty minutes. We didn't get a sense of how long they were there. It's not i mean there's there's thirty eight mark which we know because on the the first time they get on this. The gift that the fabricators made they passed the second marker and the woman who shortly gets eaten by the volkers says that's margaret number one or two and then they say how many are there and she says thirty seven and they've just passed want so there's thirty eight markers how far away those markers are from each other is not known but i don't think that we were supposed to think that it was much longer than the scene where they're burning these sixteen pounds of alabaster coul wouldn't look that different and i guess maybe that's not the point here goes. This is all just like my logistical progress. All right me giving you a t shirt and yes. I've met the goat. Yes i may or may not have okay. Spoilers for shadow and bone if you have not watched episode three the best line in the whole thing is about to be spoiled so tune out. Give me twenty seconds. I may or may not have a sticker coming that says hug the goat. Sit down hug the goat and shut the hell s the show march so merch talked pose. Yeah let's talk. Pose pose season three has dropped again. It's been a while. This is on the final season. Impose the show that we have both doors. You know how are like quibbles about the final season. I think i was always a little like where they go with the story. Because it's like the ball. Culture was such a thing in specific time. And yeah anyways we're getting. I'm getting ahead of myself here. The new season is basically said in one thousand nine hundred four their references the oj. trial the music is very much. eighty four being tortured underneath being tortured. I've seen i seem to one. Well all ten minutes of what did you think of the first episode.

"She's actually developed character problem with the show though is what kind of what i'm getting to here whereas like i don't it's not and maybe this is some of your your actions. Moss is like. It's so focused on her. If you're going to give moss credit you gotta give the girl. That's playing janine credit. I think she's good. I think the script has done at. It's i think. The script is focused so singularly on june. And there's not you can't build surrey out of that. And then serena who also loved that actor. I think a lot of the actors in this are so fun to strip is something so inconsistent and as somebody who liked battle star galactica metal saga. It has some of the same problems. This kind of like great setup. Great sort of truly dour dystopia an environment and nowhere to go with it. Just all just sad depressing on ramp anyways. All right. I don't know i'm all continue but certainly won't talk about it. Oh i won't talk about it for a while. As i have told justin. I will fill him in on what happens because this show makes me so angry that i am going to stick with it and scream at it and hate. Watch it until the very fucking in and i'm very sorry that with that this is what has happened to you all right. I'm to a lighter. Doubt your own bone talked about it briefly last week. Had i watched it last week. I can't remember the last time we talked. It wasn't last week. You watched a little bit after we talked about. Okay so this is lee bargain does oh look who's rayleigh. I guess thinks this is talked about it. A bit last episodes go back and listen to that but this is a very successful beloved series two series. There's three year old but it does not incur the third. Yeah and this is a on netflix. This is blending we talked about this. I think it's where we talked about this this blending to kind of those series. You ask some questions. I talked about the timelines right. So now i am episodes in four three and yes three episodes an and i am reading it as i as i watch. And so we're we're serve resolving to watch and read and continue to talk. I don't know where. Where do you wanna start this. Well i mean you've gone through episode three which means you've met milo the goats greatest of all time that's the pun because my leg goat hat. I'm super hilarious. He's not in the series of books.

"I know we haven't been trending toward the red but we may get there but little do the intro. We're we're in the fourth season of the handmaid's tale. It's hulu aired like year last one aired like a year and a half ago. I don't know much else to say. It's based on them. Margaret atwood novel. It's back and let's see. We ended last season with elizabeth mazas character. June not going to canada again and and the her colonel and his wife basically her captors being arrested in canada trying to get the baby back and what we thought was going to be the brink of the fall of gilead and the civil war and that opens season four. So yeah that's where we are so we've seen three episodes of this season. I feel like it's okay to that too. Spoilers because spoiler about how we thought about this there are no spoilers. Because there's nothing interesting happening in the same over and over and over elizabeth moss glares into the into the camera in a smug way. Then she gets tortured then. She looks at the tortures. And says fuck you and then some really on the nose irritating pop song plays and then we go to canada where we don't give a shit about looks feelings then we go back and we repeat the same shit over and over again. I mean that's the general concept. Do we want to get into more of my feelings about how much i hate this show or did you want to say something i so i didn't sort of patiently rolling with kind of like okay. Just just hope. He has a repetitive and horrible. I got it. I'm going to give it a little benefit of the doubt beyond where i think. A lot of people gave it out at this point. This is my breaking point of like something really. This is like we'll talk about in a minute with pose like this should have been the last season it should have been about her in canada deal an epilogue dealing with bringing down killing at out how to work from the outside. This tortuous like repetitive. Just again and again captured again escapes again. Like people helping dad. Doubts gonna kill her again. yeah endowed. who's such an amazing actor. Having to just play the same eight over again it is. It is truly tiring at this point. And i'm kinda done with it. I may just check in with you. Might just watch it. I don't know. Because i kind of do like see where the story ends. Because it's a testament to what the show had in its beginnings and what it was doing right but it is truly tedious is the word i think..

You said i would either love it or hate it And i have to say the first episode. I was i was like oh like it fine. I'm not as being contrary I i do love.

You know ten theaters and everybody gets to see it.

Viewing of a fresh release. Something like luca in the times of covert. I'm not saying when covid whatever whatever it means to be done with kovin whatever that looks like whatever. That definition is yes. Get back to what you used to do. Whatever right now in the age of kovin give your employees a one time code so they can watch the movie or maybe a one time code that works in this window of time on a saturday morning just like it would otherwise be i mean they. Could you know there's technology like we could do these things. You know disney disney technology company. Now so we should totally.

It doesn't even matter. You're an employee i mean. That's that's what i'm saying there. There's a list. There's people that are in the unions and sag or whatever and you know wgla and they're on a list because there any you there in this organization and because they're on that list they get screeners and at nowadays the screener means you get a code in the mail. Sometimes you still get a dvd When the very rare occasions But but yeah it usually is a code and website and you log in the website and then you're there so i totally say put this behind the mighty wall and we let us add it. I i have a couple other thoughts with that one is. I don't know what they're thinking is. One of the thinking might be well. We don't wanna do that. Because ted's going to invite friends over like jim and forrest and then now you're going to have eight people watching for free and we're gonna lose out on that revenue and in a time where revenue is for.
