Fresh update on "homer" discussed on Steve Somers Show

"Infer squad games with rules loosely apply, but it's all the Yankees and Mets have right now is they get ready for a season? That is two weeks away. Jen Lorient U N ASSESS. Pittis had a nice day on Thursday in the squad game for the match lower to double and says that his homer did for the Yankees. Karen Bone had his eyes and a couple of young pitchers Jordan, Montgomery and David Garcia faced off against each other. This is born on the 21 year old pitching prospect Garcia. Just a good step for him. He was very efficient. Obviously, you know, facing facing our big boy's so good to see him get out there. And get going now, and I feel like he's often running now in our summer camp, and the Yankees opened the 2020 season now in less than two weeks, they will visit the Nationals. Hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen is again making a push to buy the Mets coin's previous attempt to purchase the Mets fell apart in February. But according to the sports business Websites, Portico Cohen is one off at least five groups, including a group led by Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez to submit bids on Thursday. Colon.

NFC West: Who will unseat the 49ers?

"So glad to be joined by Candace Silva of the rams wire as we go around the NFC west try to figure out who's going to unseat the forty Niners if they can be unseeded at the top of the division cam covers the the rams the rams who apparently are the hot bat right now to win the Superbowl at thirty to one what the hell's going on their camp yeah apparently they were the most popular Super Bowl bet of the last I think there's some were the bachelor come in anywhere on the rams won the Superbowl which is surprising because they've done nothing in the past okay two months to really bolster their claim as a Super Bowl contender in it's been a rough offseason for them so they got a bounce back in to see them as a Super Bowl favorite or not people will favor but to see so many people jumping on the bandwagon for them to win the Superbowl surprising I mean obviously they were just in the Super Bowl now might about a decade ago by our current time frame standards but it was two seasons ago and they still have the same quarterback they still have the same head coach where has it gone wrong we know what happened last year it in fact but if if people are buying in why would you say don't hi this is biggest issue right now I was really surprised that they essentially ignored the the office of identity try to remake it or bring in much talent really on the opposite line this offseason they refinance or what works best it brought back Austin blight who could play guard and center I'm so really they're sticking with the same group that they had last year there's a lot of competition really the only position that sat on the opposite wanted at left tackle with what danger what work right but the other four spots where they're gonna be competitions with Bobby Evans and rob Stein at right tackle Austin Blake and Bryan Alexander in the guard position is kind of just a mishmash of players who are relatively unproven at the NFL level so I would say that's the biggest issue switching Todd Gurley out for can makers they hope is going to be an upgrade at least hopefully in the in the explosiveness department because we do the regular Todd Gurley last season and he kind of seems like he's past his prime with the old me injury in right usage so they hope that with the improved often combined with these guys developing the younger guys and then a a better run game they're going to hopefully get back to their roots from the twenty seventeen twenty seventeen to twenty eighteen season that also supplying plan doesn't seem like a very good one considering that they're in a division with the forty Niners who I don't think I'm being a Homer here by saying that they have a pretty darn good defense of line like that that might not be a good match up for them yeah that's one of the best defensive line principality and you're gonna have it you're gonna have such a us a big mismatch every time that these teams square off because the defense of life for forty third San Francisco so good you got Nick Bosa all the guys on the interior Erik Armstead so there's gonna be tough match ups all across the front when these teams square off twice a year and you're not gonna want to right now in blocking these guys or Bobby Evans are often blight it's it's gonna be a tough match up for all these guys what's M. brings us to the cornerback what what went down with Jared Goff I mean I don't know what it was it all just smoke and mirrors in that Super Bowl season was he figured out I mean there there's been plenty of arguments I've seen a lot of smart people say listen as soon as Matt Patricia showed how to basically not bite on the play action it was game over for the rams they still made the Super Bowl but last year was not great is there any realistic expectation around the rams that they can make it jump now with you know maybe acres and there is the full time running back yeah I I wouldn't say your golf was just smoke and mirrors in twenty eighteen I thought he was a legitimate MVP candidates for most that season and then they kind of have that by the crazy Monday Night Football game against the chiefs and ever since then he's just more grass than not been the same player it was it was he was really terrible on play action last season which was a surprise but again that goes back to the office of line you just didn't have time to to get to a second read he didn't have time to to turn his back to the defense on these armies clashing passes so that a big impact but he's a player who I know they gave them a hundred thirty four million dollars but at this point in his career he doesn't seem like someone who's going to really master the issues of the rest of the offense it's not can overcome terrible off in one place so for him in the rams to really bounce back it's going to take an improvement on the offensive line golf getting back to how he was playing in twenty eighteen and then that running game coming alive and that seems like a lot of that on because it's it's everything coming together as a cohesive unit but I mean with the talent that they do have they still look really good receivers with concocting Robert wood acres and Henderson at running back our promising and golf if he if he lives up to his contracting really pleased the way the FHS quarterback showed the ram should bounce back nicely I like Henderson he came out of Memphis right yep yep he he really was under utilized last year yeah they were kind of well I wouldn't say stubborn sticking with elderly but he just didn't get many opportunities but when he did when he did get some chances he showed his show computer production yeah if you could once against the forty Niners last season to worry bounced off a few tackles and I mean he he's a smaller guy he runs hard and he he he also I'm interested to see how they utilize them with Cammy Kerr's

Sports Week Morning True or False

"It's sportsweek and today we've got some true false for I'll say something and you have to decide if it's true. Or False? Heater I one. In Baseball, a homer is victory dance. The team does after winning a game. So. What do you think if it's true gives a thumbs up. If it's false, give it a thumbs down. Ready for the answer. First Switzer rushing to the other side of the top of your mouth and keep brushing. It's false. There is something that baseball called a homer, but it's not a dance. A homer is another word for a home run. In baseball teams compete to see who can score the most runs. Runs our points and you can get them by going from base to base. You can get across all four of the basis of once. That's a home, run or a home. Switzer rushing to the bottom of your mouth and brush the molars the way back. Your next true or false? In football when a referee throws his hat. It means that he's really angry. So. Is that true or false? Thumbs up for true and thumbs down for false. The answer is false. In, football referees throw their hat if a player goes out of bounds. I'll explain that you after you switched. You're brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth. Brushed the inside, outside and chewing side each tooth. In sports a referee. Someone who make sure players are following the rules. When a player breaks a rule, referees do certain motions to show. which rule was broken. Football when a player steps outside of the playing field, it's called going out of bounds and referees show by throwing their hats.

MLB Draft: Best Picks

"The best answer for this. Whose career is a major league? Baseball may well be over. He headed over to Japan for two thousand twenty. We'll see harvey no Adam Jones Jones. I think Adam. Jones was viewed by a lot of people as a legitimate. Star Star in baseball during that good orioles run where he made four consecutive, all star teams from twelve to fifteen. I don't think history is going to be kind to the perception that he was a star. Top thousand eight thirty nine. Oh P. S He was never an on base. Percentage guy is career. Slash lines to seventy, seven, three, seventy, four, fifty four. He's GonNa. Finish with fewer than his about thirty two wins above replacement Like Great Leader and it was the face of those orioles franchise, and may have been their best player in individual years never once ranked in the top ten in position players League wide a wins above replacement now one time. What about here's a name. What about Dan, Uggla? I don't know that like we view Dan Uggla. Like a star player at the time. I think what year like win was it? The thing with Uggla is that he debuted like a like a Bat Outta Hell with twenty seven homers, and there was going. GonNa say he hit like fucking. Thirty homers foot the first four years, five years, or something shows twenty, seven, thirty, one, thirty, two, thirty, one, thirty, three, thirty six. I think the thing with other. The one caveat is that everybody knew because he didn't debut until age twenty six that the. The run was never going to be a dairy right, yeah! And that ended up being very true, I mean. You know even the area at thirty six home runs, which was a career highest first year in at L., is dropped one hundred points from the year before like the the decline happened, it happened really fast. Anyway interesting question. Who is your? Who is your guy following the NBA draft? I know none of us are experts and I. Don't think anybody listening thinks that we're experts on college high school players, but let's so that we can claim that we were correct. I can make fun of Dallas for being extremely wrong later on. Let's plant our flag on a guy. Who is your guy from this draught? Shit. I mean I'm just GonNa fall back on the guy that we drafted the as. Purely because he's from my neighborhood. Tyler Soderstrom, okay, left-handed stick yet, not a catcher out of Turlock California no the best part about busy plays the catcher position, but his raw athleticism We'll probably see him land. That's frankly wherever he would like. Yeah, that's an incredible. That is really well done. a guy who does TV for team I got one nick bits go. Nick pit skill. That's go. He was the He was raised pick. He seventeen years old. He's he's. He was kind of like the. The track man advanced number spin rate, darling sort of thing. His track record extremely brief. What's what's funny about about that? Is You know like he sent out at somebody's sitting. I think he sent out a tweet or like you said something you know what posting my rap Soto, numbers and Blah.

Stephen Fry on Reimagining the Greek Myths

"You've written memoirs. You've written novels. What made you sit down and think what I really need to do is is rewrite Turi version of the Greek myths. It was amendment two to. Having dinner with some friends and I can't remember how this subject came up, but Someone was talking about you know. It wasn't an over pretentious dinner party discussion, but it was about the way. Different Cultures explained how the world came to be. We were saying is is Genesis a terrible myth? Is it all about guilt and shame and other better ones, and so started to talk about you know the Greek origin myths, and then went back to to the you know out of chaos, and or an Austin guy on I'm started staring at me and said go on. I said well. You know and then I. Get the next generation was talking. Know about Kronos and and then the birth of Zeus. New Game Wow. How'd you oldest I supervised? Creek myths and a lot of them were very far more diligent to nine and probably better read, but they just they knew the names. Everyone knows the names use in Paulo, and and and so on, but they hadn't joined the dots. And, it's a miraculous thing about Greek mythology that there is a timeline in chronology knits probably be reverse engineered by. He's been homer and later poets obviously, but nonetheless it has a shape a beginning in the end, which other mythic structures don't seem to have and the so deepen. To use such a Cliche, but I can't avoid in the DNA of our own culture and art that it's kind of part of who we are so. They encouraged me really and a lot of people said you got. You could retell those stories, and at first I thought I'd do a stage show, and then I started writing it and realize what pleasure it was to to research. Go back to some of the sources the time remember burn and find out and fill in the gaps in my knowledge that I started writing. Did that Mobile Library play a part in your early reading of the Greek myth says well, yes, it did and firmly enough it was American, mythologised, who were the biggest infants so me when I was young apart from Robert Graves who was hugely influential. Who wrote a magnificent two volume edition of agreements, but when I was younger and too young, for Robert Graves, it was Hamilton and Bernadette, Flynn and bull finch copy of Dolphins, which is American I think. Isn't it the both with? And Anthony Hoffman whom I remember well reading those when I was very young, had big illustrated version of Nathaniel. Hawthorne's Tanglewood Tales and these were all wonderful retailing children, and there was a pretty sure Roger Lance Lynn Green. Bread was a boy and at school, because I loved classics at school from a very early age, we were taught latching from age of seven of. School and and I did. It only because I think it did so badly it everything else. That I was put onto ancient Greek quite young, too. I was eight or nine when I started engine. Great which I love. And so the stories, of course, the things you use for translations and So I grew up with a with a lot of them.

"Katie! Hey Ben okay, so you told me what we're talking about. Today I've been thinking and thinking and thinking about. Puns and jokes stories and I I've come up with a couple of them, but honestly they're just too convoluted. To work. See what you did there. WAS ON. Narrow network. is a little weak, but. As best. I can do today, so you know that's what you get. Like the result of a Max pooling operation on all of your weeks off puns I did a week sauce punts oh. Man. I'm sorry. Hey, don't know is Max, pool, a person wait okay, we'll get to this in a second. You're listening to linear, digressions. Max Pooling is a layer in Kabul on that, but I'm probably getting ahead of myself a little bit, aren't I okay, because it sounds like the name of a person. Max Pooling Hi. My name is Max. Pool Yeah Max Power. That's a person. No, but it's a joke on the simpsons where homer he's on the spot has the makeup of fake name for some reason. And he looks at some kind of. Like a power tool or something? He's like Max. Power I forget what yeah this would be. I, guess you. You kind of generally went to avoid things pooling in the sense of just. Puddles all over the place. De Yeah I. Yeah I can't think of a use of that well. I mean like maybe those those kids inflatable pools like. But that would be like you get Max Pool, but not. Maybe Max Bullying. Okay well anyway, We? So, what does that visit actually? It's not about. Exploring really bad puns and it is not is about. Conversational neural nets which is a particular type of neural network architecture for image, recognition and classification. That kind of thing do you know why it's called conversational own that because conversational meetings complex difficult to follow? Idea actually did they like to know? I would like to know I mean. That's why I asked the question. Because it seems kind of strange to be like there is technique a technique. Be An difficult technique. Well, so it's almost it's keeping you out. It's kind of interesting well, okay, we're getting ahead of ourselves a little bit. Can you give me give me a couple of minutes of preamble, and then we'll get conversational part. Okay, yes, sounds good. So. This is a neural net architecture that is particularly good like we said for emiss- recognition and classification, and we've talked about neural nets a lot in other episodes, so I won't go a ton into the details here. If you've never heard of neural nets before just a the quickest introduction I can think of so the idea of neural network is. It's a algorithm architecture where you have these things called while they're sometimes called neurons actually. And, they take a number of inputs. Come originally, in the case of let's say image recognition there the pixels in the image those pixels go into basically a mathematical function in each one of the neurons. And that mathematical function takes all of the inputs multiplies them by a bunch of different weights, ads them together, and puts them through some kind of activation function and. If all of the inputs times, all of the weights sums up to larger than some number then the neuron has a one as an. And if it doesn't go above that number that it has zero output. Grossly oversimplified right, and so you have. So you have these layers than of many. Neurons in each of the layers and each layer feeds the outputs from each layer, the inputs into the next one, and then after one or two or three or four end of these. At the end you have a prediction about in this case. What kind of object was in the picture and so? Convoluted neural nets or a particular architecture of neural networks that are best Ramos recognition. And they have special types of layers in them. That's what the presence of certain types of CON-. They're called. Constitutional layers in neck is one of the signatures of. The fact that it's a constitutional neural net. Okay so you've got all these layers that feed into each other, and if some of those layers are conversational errors. Then you've gotTa Constitutional, Neural Net? What is it constitutional? There yeah a conversational air one the the reason that you have all these layers of neurons is because when effectively allows a neural nets to do in this context. Is it learn more and more complex features? And what a conversational layer does is kind of interesting. A picture is going to be depending on how you look at it. Either a two D or three D object the two D. objects, if you think of it as just a bunch of pixels that are arranged in Two d grid. It's a three D object. If you WANNA, think of each of those pixels as having not just a one zero values that it can take, it can actually have red, green and blue, and then a mixture of those three colors. If it's a color image, so if you wanted to have all of the information represented into a picture, you could do it in this three dimensional cube of information if that makes sense. So imagine you got your picture and I think the best way to explain. A conversational layer is imagine that you're picture is a bunch of bricks, and they're assembled into a wall, so I know that bricks are rectangular and pictures are usually square. You'RE GONNA. have to stretch the metaphor a little bit. Let's imagine. This big wall made up of bricks in each one of the bricks can be different color, and so that's how you're painting your picture, right? We can call them bristles. Sorry? Okay, so got your. You got your bricks. And they're making your. They're making your picture now. Imagine that you have. A piece of poster board. And, so you? Can you have this piece of poster board and you can slide it. You, know you're kind of on a a crane. Let's say that's a forklift that's up against the wall and you can slide this piece of poster board over the wall. And so at any given point, this piece of poster board is over a bunch of Bristles, and it can like kind of look at what is going on under its under its shadow. Okay. This is like a sentient poster board yeah, now. invert the metaphor slightly so now instead of it being a piece of poster board that's blocking out part of the picture. Instead imagine that by default. The whole picture is blocked out, and instead you kind of sliding around a window, and so as this window is sliding over the wall. It's scanning. All of your bristles and it's. Doing something with them, right? I'm basically building up a metaphor for what a conversational areas so. You're sending the pixels into your neural net. And then there's what's called a filter or colonel, and that's your piece of poster board so usually it's something like three pixels by pixels or five pixels by five pixels towards that yeah. It's not particularly big, and it's this cutout this going to be sliding around and it's going to be looking at all of the different little sub regions of the picture and trying to figure out what's going on in

Edited by Andr Naffis-Sahely The Heart of a Stranger: An Anthology of Exile Literature

"I'm going to be talking about an extraordinary book. It's called the heart of a stranger. It's an anthology of exile good richer. And you know once upon a time that was an inevitable subject when we were talking about Joseph Conrad who wrote in English when his native language was Polish or about a -demia Nabokov when he was an exiled Russian aristocrat native language Russian road I in German and then in English but here we have an anthology. I think it's one of the most remarkable anthologies I've ever read it takes us from the ancient Greeks up to the present and shown us how much of the world has been living in exile. Odysseus returned to Greece at the end of the Trojan. More is the story of a man going from an island to island exile. Sometimes the exiles in this book are like the Britishers in Africa. They're exiled in Paradise. They are really. What is the expression you found for this Andre Parasites parasites in Paradise Andrei Nafis a? He is the editor of this book. The heart of a stranger. He gathers essays letters diaries poetry from every continent. How many authors are there in this book? Do you think there's one hundred contributors. We're reading not just homer and the Old Testament and the new testament but all the way to Palestinian poetry. This editor is born of an Iranian father and Italian mother he was born in Abu Dhabi and he brings the travels around the world. He's Taunt in England. He's currently teaching classes both oxydental college and Ucla. Now I'm telling you my listeners. This is the book to read if you want to know what is happening in the literary. World Today. Who are the people were talking to us? Who were their predecessors people like Emma Goldman? How did the idea for the San Thaung G Begin Andrei? Well I thank you for having me on the program. It's really quite quite a privilege to be able to talk to you about this. You know the the first question I usually get asked a dealing with. This book is is why now and I think. A lot of people pointed to the fact that this seems to be a particularly good moment to talk about exile. Although of course there's never been a bad moment to talk about exile others sixty five million displaced people that we know of this year two major wars and of course right now. I'm living in Los Angeles which is a home of exiles. We tend to think of the the homeless here in Los Angeles is coming from somewhere else attracted by the Clement California weather but of course a lot of them are Californians. So there's that they mentioned of the book. The other one is personal while it took me roughly around three years to put the book together after I signed the contract. Publishers in reality of really being preparing for it my entire life my father as you mentioned. Israelian he was exiled from Iran in nineteen seventy nine for belonging to a French Communist group. He was forced the Liberals leave the country my grandfathers on both sides where economic `exiles of one kind or another and so. I think there was the intense personal history on the one hand and on the other the need to create a very modest platform for some of the writers that I think need wider exposure. Let's pretend that I have not seen the San Thaung achieve before. What is the literature of exile? I know it has many definitions and that's one of its definitions that it can't be defined of but what is it well. I think it's it's safe to say that. Especially these days. We tend to think of as a by product of civilization so we are continually exposed to headlines The talks about political exiles exhaustive war tax exile governments in exile. But I think it's quite clear to me. That exile is actually engine of civilization. So take the founding myth of the Israelites with an exodus. The reason promised land. The American republic was founded by themselves the European Union likewise the Europe the Italian renaissance fueled by Byzantine exile so the literature of exile. Is I see. It really is a record of the civilizational process because again without exile you cannot have civilization the very first story actually in the book is a a retelling of an ancient Egyptian myth by the fantastic novelist. Keep Foos who one of my favorite authors Name of win win a Nobel Prize. He did thus to date. He is the only middle-eastern Nobel laureate

MLB Players' Strange and Inspiring Hobbies

"So first of all. What's the latest on the negotiations to get baseball? Backup running. So there was a pretty extensive ammo seventy page protocol document by MLB that was presented to the Players Association on Friday. It's very clear to things to me. One the League is taking the health and safety of their players very seriously and to this is not going to be normal baseball as we know it. Everything from you know the fact that they're going to have the hand sanitizer between innings. A ball is touched by too. Many people. It gets changed out to the lineup. Cards now usually the managers or coach come over and they present it to the they meet with the other team all of this is going to be done electronically so while we may have baseball. Twenty twenty It is going to be different. It's not going to just be no fans. There's a lot that's going to go into this. And there's a lot Surrounding the teams in the players that they're going to be held accountable for in order to pull off something. That's this big this ambitious. And how likely do you think it is? That will have major league baseball by the first week of July. I think we will. I think it's become increasingly likely because I think both sides stand to lose a lot right. You're talking about billions of dollars. When the owners concerned players will get a small fraction of their salary of there's no season I think the baseball should look at it as listen. You have a chance to be the only sport going on right now. You have a chance to captivate an audience and to expose baseball to people that otherwise just simply wouldn't watch it. You saw what happened with that. Michael Jordan documentary. The LAST DANCE. You saw how it became really a fabric of our culture was all anyone was talking about and part of it was it was Michael Jordan but a big part of as well as the fact that there was nothing else going on and I think baseball if they don't get something going really misses the opportunity and misses the chance to continue to grow and build. Its audience this year. Money aside so I do think there's a lot of motivation for everyone to see some form of baseball in twenty twenty. Well let's get to the importance of here. Brit what Major League baseball players have been doing with all the extra time on their hands. And let's start with Orioles. Outfielder Anthony Santander. Here's the one to deliver on the way that balls tagged way way back. They turn around and look at the Vail and goodbye homerun to homer inning Venezuela players kind of emerged for the Orioles. He's a guy who fans have kind of taken. A little bit of particular liking to is not afraid to express his personality. Remember that I saw Miguel Carrera. He play winnable My CD against thought Gino's and that's why it's my favorite player. He became sort of strangely famous last year. During this incident at Camden yards involving some British fans this was just a regular August game against the Blue Jays. And what happened was more than four thousand. Uk Fans were in attendance. They become kind of enamored with Santander. And what you have. Is this large group dressed in orange absolutely going nuts with anything and everything? He's doing all the left again. Tandare back on. Let's shape gets an applause. Wonderful two feet. He's favorite player. I mean he was smiling. He was shaking his head kind of getting rid from teammates about the whole fan club. He threw a baseball into the stands at one point. Kind of giving one of them. Lucky Souvenir just for minds you again. How Fun Baseball be? So what has the terming? Anthony Santander ben up during lockdown. So he has been up to playing the harp or vans. This time I contract the rest to continue my daily routine which is learn how to play this beautiful instrument now this sounds super random right except it is a very popular instrument in Venezuelan music. So it's a part of their culture and you know he has to make sure his fingernails or a certain length. This requires hours and hours of practice. I don't know anything about the this instrument I don't know how to play it. His hope is that he can play a song when this is over. Four fans on the harp with this time with a baseball. Have the commitment to learn how to play it so come every single day. I lease for two hours so hopefully next year I can be able to play a song for you. Guys GonNa give my best to be ready for that time. I think he did not realize how hard the harp was. I'm not a musical person per se but I think when you look at instruments to learn the harp has got to be in the upper echelon when it comes to difficulty A lot going on with the fingers lock goes on the wrist a lot of intricacies that. I don't think he was immediately aware of when you have decided to take this project on.

I would like to preface this entire interview by saying that I knew nothing about basketball or the NBA. I'm GonNa try really really hard. Let's bring in Mark Mark. Thank you very much for joining us. Or what's the deal? Tracy was just asking this on twitter. Can you give us the thirty second explanation of how the NBA Salary Cap Works? Tracy tried to cram homer for the PODCAST. And so it's like. How does that work? She wants to know. I'd rather calculate Pi digits. Explain the salary cap. Okay well fair enough anyway. Thank you for joining us. As we've been doing throughout all of our episodes during this crisis I wanna make a note that it is a May Twelfth Today. The reason that important is because who knows how the world will look in a few days when this comes out but it is here. We are may twelfth about really Two months into this crisis in most intense form because there's actually march eleventh the day that the NBA was cancelled. So two months in mark of just from your perspective. All the different things you're involved. Then how does the world look to right now sort of big picture and with the businesses that you operate and invest uncertain confused hope cautiously hopeful looking for guidance? Looking for leadership. We just don't know who to trust with our lives effectively and that's keeping people from doing things the way we've always done them. So you invest in a lot of small businesses. Could you maybe give some specifics? About how your portfolio companies are getting impacted right now. What are the biggest problems that they're currently facing big? Promise that the fall in demand you know. There's just people are very hesitant when it comes to buying products and services right now unless they're related to things you can store in your home. You know the companies. I have that are selling athletic equipment. You know those are doing well. Companies THAT ARE SELLING FOOD PRODUCTS. Those are doing well. Companies that are selling pretty much everything else are not or their businesses down is some percentage so you know people trying to get. We're trying to gauge. When consumer demand will come back and that's the most difficult aspect of trying to figure out what's next so Hudson in your view what's been done from the You know sitting aside what the right approach to health prices. We've seen we saw the cares. Package passed at the end of March with the idea of helping least small businesses keep employees on payroll to not to prevent the unemployment crisis from getting worse and for people to have businesses to be to to go back to work to when the health crisis lives also seen a range of things from the. Fed in your view. How effective have those measures band? At least dampening the pain from this some some To some extent you know I'll refer to Mike Tyson. Who said everybody's got a plan until they get punched in the mouth right and the cares package that the plan was great. The initial timing of it was great. It was it happened very quickly. The implementation was was too slow and so when we got you know the day the NBA was cancelled march. Eleventh and people started really realizing that there were issues that we're going to have to address from out perspective and then you know relatively quickly for Congress the beginning of April. We had a cares for stimulus but unfortunately from that point in time till the time small businesses small medium size is actually got funding was several weeks. Add to that the fact that there wasn't enough money add to that the fact that there was uncertainty about how the money can or should be spent and what would be the case for forgiveness and that caused a lot of small businesses to hesitate and that led to a scenario where you know a month in a month. After the cares OB- stimulus was passed. Businesses really weren't able to take the steps necessary to try to continue as much business as usual and that really created a cascading negative effect. That were still in right now. So the concept was good. The plan was good but the virus punched in the mouth and the execution was near where it needed to be.

But Why Live: Poetry

"Oscar is ten and lives in Bethlehem Pennsylvania and he told us he wrote this poem for Mother's Day bike rides with Mama another scrape. My knees keep donating bloody skin to the sidewalk. Here comes Mama keeping a straight face even though I know she must be laughing inside because it's not the first time I ride my bike into a fire hydrant since we took off the training wheels. I've been living on the edge the edge of sidewalk the edge of Aggressee Hill. The Japan nerves no longer our arms on my shoulder while I ride but she is always there. I remember clapping when I wrote up to the mailbox. You're doing it. She cheered. That was three years ago now. Whenever WE GONE by Christ's we travel miles. It's our thing on narrow streets. She leads the way otherwise. We're side by side even uphill in those. She's not holding my shoulders like she did when I was seven. I know I will always have balanced because of her. That's what a mother does to ride my bike with Mama to tell her without words that I love her Oscar. I love that poem. I Bet your mother was so so happy to get it. Here's a poem from Cassia. Who's seven and lives in Chatham on Tour Ontario? Her poem is called name is waterfall. I walk slowly down the rocks. My eyes are big whitish blue. I carry a bubble of water by breath salty. My touches software misty. I moved fast and sneaky voices. Smooth soft common scratchy. Right name is my name is waterfall casio. That is so beautiful all right. Let's get into more poems. We have more of you who are calling in to read some poems on air and some of you may have questions about poems and poetry that you'd like to share with us as well and I want to bring in our guide for the our Ted. Shy Ted is known as the poetry guy around here in Vermont and beyond. He's been teaching poetry. Two Kids for more than twenty years and some of you listening might have been about to have a school event with Ted shy before your classes got canceled so lucky us. He's with us today. Ted I Jane. I'm so excited to talk poetry with you. Even more thrilled than you. This is such a cool honor to be on your awesome show. Oh thank you thank you but I'm going to start with a really tough question for you. Although I think it's one you've probably answered many many times. So Ted when we think about poems some poems rhyme some poems. Don't some have a few words and then skip to the next line. Some have lines that run together. Some poems are designed to be read on the page others are designed to be spoken and heard a loud some poems follow rules about form and structure. Once you know the rules. Some poems still break them. Some poems are very very short but some like the epic poetry of homer are as long as a chapter book and have characters and plot like a novel would so ted. What is poetry? That's a hard question and you listed so many different ways because that's what homes are. There are lots of different things to me. A poem is a small mostly small. It's focused it's laser focused on one important thing in your life. Something you feel really strongly about and it's sort of like if if kids live in the northeast and especially in Vermont. They know that Maple Syrup for example is something we do here. We make here. And when you make Maple Syrup you take lots and lots of Sap from the maple tree and you have to boil it down and it takes forty drops of maple sap to make one delicious drop of Maple Syrup that dances on your tongue. And it's kind of a process that everybody has to take this long mostly long process of sort of distilling boiling down your thoughts until it becomes a really important night and idea and it doesn't have to take any particular shape. That's the cool thing about poems. A rules are super flexible. So but so if a poem can be anything if you're writing one. Oh that's a good question. Well it's sort of an open thing you. There's so many different shapes and sizes of poems but it is something that you know in your heart. You've written something. Like Oscar was writing about such detail and living I love the way he described living on the edge and Cossio filled with details about her voice and their breath is and it's looking at things really really carefully and so did I answer your question. Not really because there isn't there isn't really an answer. Poems take so many different forms but they're not stories there even though Oscar kind of told story. It's it's really just a focus little expression of something super important so those epic poems and epic poets like homer and you know the the Odyssey and the Iliad are those really kind of different than what we consider modern poems. I think so. I have a hard time There aren't too many poets that long stuff these days and back when they wrote those they didn't even write them down. Had people who memorize like and they would share it for many many days. Twenty four seven without stopping so that was kind of an unusual story type of poem and epic Narrative Poem. And fortunately there aren't. Most people writes shorter stuff and I certainly do myself. I'm kids. Maybe that's a good assignment for you. See if you can just recite a poem. Twenty four seven. See what you think about that. Maybe maybe you can tell them that. Ted Shy told you you should do it. Let's get to some poems. That kids are sending us and we have lots of kids calling in Ted who WanNa read their poems allowed and this is so exciting because I love it when are able to read their own poems but we got a found poem that was sent to us by the common dish town elementary sixth grade class they actually wrote this palm on zoom. They're having video conference meetings and they focused on things to do outside so each student put a line in the chat box in their video conference and hit send at the very same time and this is the poem that resulted watching the birds. That land on my feet feeder going hiking riding my bike bright orange caterpillar under the leaves. I breathe in air running down the sidewalk as fast as I can smelling the bright tulips growing. Love it outside. That's pretty good for palm that everybody hit send on at the same time. Don't you all say the ending? The last line is the perfect line for that yeah. Nothing's no kidding. Thank you for that. Kevin dish sixth-graders.

"We have been doing this podcast for quite some time, and we often are like blown away, but this one really takes the whale of wife cake. I'm truly like rewatching this episode like, you know, the story of the bowling team, I remember but I forgot that this has almost every great joke. We have been written. Yes, we were texting about it, and I feel like you can only like summarize it. In default, invoice, tally, step aside has everything stupid Homer ambitious. Homer, sympathetic burns maniacal birds and auto. And a lot of best. So aside from they're being slim pickings left is there anything about this episode that particularly resonates with you? I am a big Monty burns fan all the jokes about him being old and mean are very funny. So it's a really good one of those I love season. Seven, she's in so much much and I had to pick it for mad magazine. Obviously, I had to pick it because the last time I saw Julia, we were bowling so right. And it has a food reference in it. I'm going to do on the blog. Yeah. We went bowling alley you and your wife Alec on the show. I don't know why said boyfriend Alex, you guys all know Alec we should all do. We did a. I was gonna say three way couples hang weird. Super appropriate because our neighbor to it. I'm saying this because one of the people there was a baby. Oh, no. You know, maybe not that, but, but we all did there are three couples there and baby. Old nineties, Danson movie. And and we were having a time. So I'm glad that, that pals if you want we. I've seen that pin pals bowling shirt on so many different. I wanna say people at Scott concerts. I've seen them out in the wild. I feel like hot topics still sells it but it's a good shirt, so excellent shirts. Yeah. So let's get right into this episode. Oh, gosh. She know sometimes if you open Google it will just show you like trending story was trying to open my notes for this episode. And as a lot of listeners know Julian, I don't eat meat and the story is just sixty two thousand pounds of Rami are being recalled just days before Memorial Day. And it's a very graphic. Victor. I'm gonna need. This this starts immediately. We'll actually we rarely talk about the couch gag but I must because it's the cutest thing I've ever seen in my life. And I now really want this, like painted realistically my house. But the, the Simpsons are just a bunch of mice and idea. I squealed I saw and I actually was. Yeah. Well, we haven't talked about this on the podcast, shockingly, I don't think but. Laurel your husband and I were talking about it. But the Matt graining thing of him wanting to, like him planting a family of mice have been living in the walls of the Simpsons houses entire time. And he wanted to do like a whole separate show that we've been off. What's the mice? Yes. And sometimes I didn't I show, I'm shocked. I did not know about this until very recently. But if you go online there, so many fan theories about, like she'd mices here, because sometimes in shots, you'll see the little mice whole house, and it's very looney toon, and Hugo. Yeah, there's a mouse in there. Yeah. With rat, maybe. Maybe maybe this. Yeah. This was the couch gag was lie reference. Why? Yes, we start this episode at the comic book shop, and we I was very delighted to front and center. See a mad magazine there was also cracked. And let's play this clip, because it is excellent.

So head to had when when it was still t-that you're going to be directing a heart attack where they were you given notes to to show the actual heart or was that your choice. No. That was in the script that we see what's happening to the heart and at the same time that specifically right? But some specifics about a lot of it was left up to you know, what I had to do. You know, this is about another episode of. I remember reading the land of chocolate sequence. Living fellow my chair laughing. It was so funny. But you know, the script described it but not as details. I thought it did actually I just when I read it. I guess I saw this. In life. I just remember thinking out deliriously happy skipping.

For our benefit and the benefit of those that are less fortunate than we are. And and yet people don't seem to get that and are thrilled to have this whole thing going on. Stone has said that he's gonna stick with Trump. He is not going to be ratting out on anything that he knows on Trump. He is a Trump supporter through and through. Now, the charges are there.

"Picking fans already forgetting me. I was ready to take the biggest debt by life. They'll turn on you. I know, and I also love I mean, we talk about how fast a joke. Writing is. In this episode, just I was ready to take the big step in my life, literally falls in that real fun. And that happens later when in episode bark gets famous the I didn't do it episode. He comes out everyone can't get enough. And suddenly, yeah, it just doesn't work anymore. And he asked crusty like what happened? I do something wrong. He's just like that show biz. And that's really what it is. It's just things sometimes just not hot anymore, especially when it's something. That's like a gimmick. Like that to be like a theme that we see throughout know, so many episodes of the Simpsons of just the fickleness of fame. Do you find that to make the Simpsons to be a little bit more of a cynical show or do you feel like it's kind of pragmatic and trying to show realism I marveled at the abilities of the writers. And and Matt because he loves like if you talk about some hometown store. Some little store in Detroit. You know, he would perk up Xeres because it was like real Americana. And and I think that they have a handle on everything that goes on, you know, from Putin is his works is spying and all this other stuff as subterfuge. There was on a very low level. A man in one of those towns, you know, what I mean, it covered so many little things little colors feelings that we all get and I just love the way they would touch on it in every episode. Yeah. And you know, the idea that possibly being a negative or like, maybe finicky cynical to say like e only get, you know, you're only hot until you're not for for most people watching the show, you're not in show business, and it's kind of returning back to reality rather than the story of. Like, a someone who isn't entertainer who tried their best. And then they failed. It's more. Like, you know, it's good to have tried it. All right to have experienced that moment, and it's kind of mystic in that way of kind of like, you know, it's great that Bart dried. It's great that Homer chide. He got to have that experience. And as we know from watching the Simpsons for as long as we have he's had about how many jobs one hundred two hundred and eighty plus job chapter about it in our since book. Yeah. One hundred things Simpsons fans should know into before they die. With you. I feel like I never really take the Simpsons to be an overtly negative show. I do feel like, you know, you have cynical characters like crusty the clown. But I think that maybe it is within the framework of it being TV show. I kind of surrender to the regenerative property that that kind of instills of, you know, you'll get them next time like you failed at this. But Homer, you're gonna have one hundred and seventy nine other jobs or just I think telling the viewer like if you fail at one thing, just, you know, pivot. Out to slightly shift. I think it's so funny that the mascot would get the opportunity to give speech. Yeah. Zeroed in the fact that it was like, the Lou Gehrig thing and totally missed. It's very funny that that I mean that is definitely a trademark of the Simpsons in the world in which we live with that show where they just they post things, very confidently, and you just accept it. Like, that's just you know, a factor of the world. And I think that, you know, something that the Simpsons does so masterfully over the course of so many seasons is just sort of making the absurd not absurd and just have to accept the reality of it. You know, like why not, you know, have this mascot be the greatest hero that the people of Springfield have for a hot minute in the writing room when they're writing something like that to somebody just say, hey, you know, he should just stand up and give a speech to the audience, and then somebody would say, yeah. But he's a mascot. He just up. And did it. Yeah. And that Seoul hysterically funny that somebody said why not yet? I've love writing answering the question why not seeing that?.

"He said he's when he's explaining how happy he is to be the mascot. He saying. You know, you know, they weren't laughing at me, they're laughing towards me. You know, it's just just often. It was beautiful because everything else had been done. You know, I'm not laughing at you. I'm laughing near you. I'm not laughing at you the towards yet. I never heard that nor had I I love the off the nose choices that the writers. Actually, they don't always joke. They don't always leave it to perform to deliver something to put a twist on it all the writing had a cool twist. Yeah. Yeah. I really love. What's book ended in this episode of him telling the story in the bar, and I feel like it's, you know, it's not as drastic as like, you know, an environment change or tone changed as we see in in some later seasons of the Simpsons when they have like, you know, a full episode. That's kind of in a game of thrones world like the surfaces episode that I think open season twenty nine, but it is they predict many things at the time. I was thinking more this episode kind of feels like off structure to their normal. Kind of episodes because it opens she'll know in this very poetic way where Homer is being very self reflective, which an emotion we see with him a lot. But I love it because it grounds it in what since does. So well in this almost cinematic kind of style. And so we we take like what happens with the story that he tells with this like gravity of like, oh, no. This is something that he feels really bad about an eye. Honestly was waiting for you know, the shoe to drop in a bigger way. But you know, we see later not to spoil the ending. But I will. He ends up not hacking it in the big leagues and has to come back of, you know, embarrassed. But you know, the way that he frames that you would have expected a worse thing to happen. I actually fell because it was a perfect take I fell for the fact that that baseball team owner needed him in the big leagues. Wait a minute. He what if he's given them a job, you know, as like a catcher or I thought cell. Yeah. These life would take the good turn instead of the bad round. Totally do you really love the name character name of the owner of from the big leagues. I think his name is tech. So hera. Written down somewhere, but Antoine tech. So Hera, I love it better. As as he's referred to throughout the episode to close friends. Sure has the other moment that I love so much that I had that has kind of that achey nece. That's just very home or really gets it in this episode. We actually have the clip of it which is Homer pitching to the big leagues. I just think it's so it's so good this line here that we're gonna play. Chicks homer. Now, we both knew and you began doing this. You are going to be here forever. Oh, I get it. You can't fire the players. So you fire the mascot you make me. Sick homer. I'm not firing. You just got the word you've been called up to capital city and the majors. That's right. Wait, a minute capital city has a mascot, the greatest mascot. There is the capital city goofball. He's getting on years, and he needs someone to fill in for couple innings, and that could be a big opportunity for you to say, don't you talk it over with your family because they might say, no. I love actually answering a question of like, why don't you go and do that with an with an actual answer? Because I no. Happen so fast. That was that little moment where I thought maybe it's going to just blow up. Yeah. And he's going to be sent to be a baseball player like dieting out right starting out. He I mean, he's showing his physicality is probably on par with some of the baseball turned superfan after that. And it's like, they already have a mascot. Yeah. They're so good at what they do. But he he goes to radio stations, and he won't take off that damn head. We're gonna have a great day rain. So, you know, Homer homers already kind of proven himself to kind of be have a little bit more awareness than normal in this episode, which I.

"Might be typo mental note that girl knows too much terrifying. We didn't get the wonderful smart line segment. I really liked the outfit that hummers wearing here. Decides to go with a bucket hat. And yeah, this is when we find out that they are causing more crimes and his being than than are being prevented. And can't is kind of providing some facts and figures to Homer replies. We'll don't you know that forty percent of people know that like figures are made up. And this will be get that great moment of the Colin show, which Casey mentioned earlier, just like it. I mean, I ever caller because this is not a Colin show. And it's just so funny because it's just like it's your arch nemesis and the yellow I like the way that culminates too. I don't know if we mentioned that once Homer realizes what's happening. He goes why you monster. And then we see him strangle somebody off screen, and then we wide and it shows it it's just this like stay stage manager. Collapses to the ground unconscious and they proceed with the shift. Of course, you know, this episode needs to heighten with the cat burglar is doing and we get this sort of tipping off. What's going to be essentially our third act that there is the world's largest cubic Konia. I love this just ties right in with what I love about this episode into many others. And it's just about how awful and stupid Springfield is. And yeah. And March later has that great line just because it relates of just like kind of pointing fun at poking fun. At the episode itself is I had no idea the town care too much about this Kony. I love that. I mean, I love this live menace of that. It's not fully. Yeah. Because like, you know, watching Batman or even something that's still comedy like, you know, power puff girls. Like anytime. There's something stolen. The whole town is up in arms roast if something stolen from Los Angeles. Unless it was something that I personally was invested in. I would be like. Yeah. I guess that's. Local voting people are like Schmidt. I also want to say that I believe it's around this time in the when Homer talks to the cat burglar. And he says I'll be there night and day unless you wanna tell me more and give me a precise time, which kind of how my thinking is usually. Yeah. This on the old people wanna help, and you know. Homer has to kind of level with grandpa saying like, okay? Five standstill and don't steal anything immediately. They start stealing something lunch break. And then there's a really wonderful winking nodding exchange Skinner and dragnet reference. That. Yeah. I didn't. I didn't either. Yeah. I think that, you know, we often talk about there being of course, tons of pop culture references within the Simpsons. And usually the way that they baked into the episode. You can kind of get that it still a joke. Even if you don't understand the source material with this. However, especially in this most recent watching of it it felt to me like, you can only appreciate this like you recognize its references that you can only truly appreciate it. If you knew the source material. I remember being a kid watching it and data as funny that they were not in back and that that's the extensive, Jill joy, right, right? Yeah. Yeah. Homer is distracted from his post at this point. When he by the way, we're reminded that he's thirty six years old, which is still very everytime done. He finds out that they're underage drinking beer that a permit. We cut to him and Chuck chug. And then we get this wonderful newspaper spinning headline asleep at the switch, and let's play that clip. It wasn't a sleep. It was I believe you, Dan, no matter what papers still have a job to do. You've let me down, man. No, I don't believe in nothing. No more. I'm going to law school. Dad, maybe this will cheer you up. Oh doesn't work anymore. I didn't say stop..

It's an exit lab. It's only. Listening to. It brings out something in him. It's very funny. So Ned is trying to figure out like who's going to lead the group, right and someone just immediately as you do it. He's like, oh, well, I don't really have the experience, of course, being modest. Yeah. I'm someone else. He's right. That is that Homer ended up being in charge. And we get that great grandpa line with the kicked out the Irish, of course, before that he says I'll says I'll join filled with pissing vinegar at push just filled with vinegar. Yes. It's basically this whole conversation of like, you know, old people and whether or not they're important, and we get a very unfortunate tickling happening here to form of abuse. It It is is. I put in my note surfer to it's cute tickling. The OB useless. And then we get a lovely Homer and Barney handshake, which is both of them upside down shaking through and now we have the secret federal anti handshake. Nobody gets a nickname. I love if you wanna walk through the some of the nicknames or I can. Oh, right. I forgot about this. Yeah. Everybody's named after a pool. Ball Cubo your eight ball, you're twelve ball and you'll be to ball just with most urinated. This whole sequence. And we also get what could have been are almost sponsor when they take to the streets and Homer, grabs Routemasters three thousand love how dated this. It's so beautifully. Dancing is so good so good. I mean, it is. Basically, it kind of makes me think of the Mr. microphone. You know? And so it's like, you know, broadcasting music as Homer is speaking through it. And it's fairy of the time and kids even say, it's. Toward the car and dancing and do hear music. You starts dancing. We are all in Casey. So this is the point where kind of as discussed in the Wikipedia entry that Homer's group has really become more of a vigilante thing. And basically, they're they're starting to take over other types of crimes and not solve this burglary problem, and they come across JIMBO Jones. This is a fun. Little bee's story homers relationship with JIMBO kinda take some under. Maybe the only interaction between these two. Yeah. That he is spray. They came upon him in these spray painting carpet diem. Yeah. Of course to offset the, you know, being basically crime, and they say to him you'd better have a good reason for doing that. Boy, it makes me feel like a big man, JIMBO. List? It is. And then what my favorite lines in this episode? Can you swing zag doorknobs? Yeah. And they gave him a sack say you gotta supply your. And so now, we cut to the dinner table. And I want to point out that the entire family is eating gigantic thanksgiving Turkey. In the archives for design. So we have this clip of them at the dinner table. Let's take listen. So I said to him look buddy, your car was upside down when we got here, and it's for your grandma. She's the most off like that. Don't you see your abusing power like all each Lantis? I mean, if you're the police who will police the police, oh coastguard wasn't the whole point to catch the cat burglar.

"Spoiler more Malloy is arrested, but he outwitted. Citizens of Springfield and escapes. Well, well, I will say one of my points in watching the position I wanted to bring up you have. No that maybe this synopsis is actually true to basically the tone of this episode because when it's revealed that it is Malloy, it doesn't seem to be that big of a surprise mystery really not they weren't trying to make a mystery show because they broadcast it pretty strongly. I mean, even though the introduction Malloy is kind of baked into a joke, which is kind of how you get away with things like this. It is just we've never seen this person before it's the fifth season of the Simpsons. He just happens to appear and then even later when a reveals how he figured out. It was Malloy. It's very obvious comical. Yeah. So if you've read the time machine, did it this really just feels like a segment of it. Or like it felt like they turned that into. Episode because the whole point of the Frank burly detective character is that he's a moron, and he's constantly deducing things that are very obvious. Like me, like, he's like, we should all know. And it's kind of doing the same thing in Grandpa's kind of in some ways the Frank burly character. I would say, yeah. Absolutely. Especially says much more vertical than that's that's such a such a Frank burly. I wonder if that is you know, I mean, surely there are twist and turns that you don't necessarily see coming with that. But it's not really a mystery series his books with a capital M for mystery. It's leaning more comedy. And I think that true that it's a little lax on the mystery heightened with the comedy. It's really more about spending time with that character. And, you know, noticing the details of that world in that character's POV, and finding that sometimes I feel like the mystery would be a distraction from that. If we were truly like who done it. Sure. This is no shot mister burns. I think I think what this episode is just a celebration of has stupid Springfield can be much more than any sort of mystery store fun to see Homer in this leadership role leading essentially an angry mob, which we know Springfield loves themselves. Angry mom, and there are a lot of really great moments with characters in Springfield. So we got to, you know, this is a very very much an episode about Springfield. Fun because you get a lot of movie parodies throughout as well. Obviously, the the major one being it's a mad mad world. Have there are in that conversation. Have you guys seen? I've never seen it. But I have seen the movie rat race. Met world sip..

"It was fun. But a good time. Yeah. Under favorite KOTA moment. Just thinking about him in the Simpsons doing only, I may dance. Oh, that's sure it's classic. I was thinking about him in those checkings. Remember the tricking? Yes. I was actually there for that taping that day. Wow. Oh, shadow to me. Very casey. I was thinking about a specific sketch from the old Coenen where he had Slipknot on. And then he brought in. Vaudeville act called the slip nuts. Right. Are so good. Just three guys pouring a bunch of peanuts onto the stage pretending to slip and singing a beautiful song. I also want to say so you're talking about John sports swelter being you know, one of your comedy icons influences.

We like to read this enough upsets from Wikipedia ice cold because good could be bad that usually bad. I will say that I found a if I were to create a scientific chart that the more recent episodes tend to be a little bit worse, and that people around this era of the Simpsons, they tend to give a little bit more detail.

I wanted to mention we had a text back and forth when you asked me afterward. How it went? And I said great, I think I spent a whole ten minutes determining we would now find out who was the mommy, and who is the daddy of this podcast. I said did you find out no genders fluid? That is actually what we found out. But we were missed I wanted to touch. Welcome back. It's good to be home. It's good to be. Oh and with that.

"Welcome to stop Homer time. It's podcast within the podcast, which is the overdue podcast about books. He mean, read my name is Craig James Andrew, and this is too slow that down because I am the Mike. You can't say all in one syllable. No matter how hard you try to do that. Eight three two one. That was like a civil and a half. Sorry now that was beautiful. This is stop Homer time. It is the show that we have been doing monthly going through. Emily Wilson's translation of Homer's the odyssey. I looked at the cover of my copy, and I have taken the book jacket off. So it's just a book. This is possible. This is the most critically acclaimed podcasts based on EMI Wilson's version of the odyssey. The I am aware of person big you're right. I think you're right about that. So we are going through this text to books at a time, and we are on books twelve and thirteen. How's it feel be passed? The halfway point feels pretty good. Like, we get pretty good. We'll we'll talk about. It this episode. Like, we're I think the thing that surprised me was that we're only halfway through. There's a little bit of a like it's coming to a close that starts to creep in during book thirteen and we are only halfway through. So I know that and I think this might be this might be how the popular perception of the odyssey is too. But in my brain, the like Odysseus, traveling and go. Through all his trials part feels like more of the book than it is. And we talked a little bit about this last time because we both just are we're a little bit surprised at how some of the major episodes just like the res on by. And then they're like a bunch of people die couple people get oily, we dump some wine on the floor. And then we're done also wanna hit me with a quick recap of where we are up to this point. What recently just happened that we might need to know? And so in books books ten eleven were big travel books big books for a lot of his deceased men dying. We are aware that he is in facial alone. No with zero boys to his name, no, boys. But in the flashback, he still has some boys Karenin. So the question is just like what monster or like bad plan? Ding is going to be the cause of death all these boys. Sure..
