The Facebook Whistleblower Is a Pro-Censorship Czar

"I turned to. Cbs to see what was on. And it was this. Facebook whistle blower found the whole thing to be really strange very staged very scripted. And so you have this whistle blower going on sixty minutes and said okay. This doesn't seem right just the way she was answering questions it was she kept on saying i want what's best for the company wants what's best for facebook and i think they're getting in their own way. So that's strange whistle blower the keeps on saying that you actually want what's best for the company that's kind of a weird way to frame it and so then today all of a sudden the whistle blowers in front of congress. That happened quickly. So you go from sixty minutes to congress and forty eight hours thirty six hours not even who put all that together. Is there a democrat staffer. That wants her to go in front of congress and so this woman who is testifying francis how gin. She's a thirty seven year old former facebook product manager who worked on the civic integrity issues at the company. Now mind you yesterday. Facebook was down mysteriously for five or six hours. And there is a theory out there. And i just want to reiterate it unsubstantiated and purely conjecture purely speculative that all of this is tied together that there might have been some sort of algorithm ix system reset within facebook which is why facebook went down for five hours yesterday. Why none of the people in charge of facebook seemed that confused or irritated when facebook went down. Purely unsubstantiated and speculative but it's interesting and it would make sense in a certain particular theory of analysis so francis hogan gets in front of facebook and she says something repeatedly look in order to save facebook from the children in order to save facebook or save children from facebook. We need more government regulation to monitor the political discourse on facebook so basically she is a pro censorship.

The just the the disparity between those two in that scene is just remarkable as great. I mean that. I think a lesser actor may kind of try to rise to the occasion and meet the emotionality of the director actor. No that's a. that's a really good point right. I mean like he's by doing so much less. It creates a much more rich character. And how is responding to this situation shows dislike the end of the day. It's like look. I care about you cause you're my name. Yeah yeah he's. He's an extension of taiwan and if he's not going to be an extension of thailand and he's not worth anything and and you know what if even jamie had never walked in the room. Thailand may have just sent tearing into the wall. I mean it could have. That could have happened without jamie giving up anything so taiwan was about to win the chess match anyway.

"And it's a thing to behold his face contorts itself in such a way that he's no longer human and this is pre cgi. That's even more impressive. In terms of the skill set that hamill had. Yeah and i think it actually broke several makeup artists. Happy sought news like well. That's it that we're done with it and this is the fun fact about empire strikes back because a lot of people say oh. It was delayed because he was in a car accident. That's they wrote the whole hof sequence. What happened was they actually filmed the sequence where he transforms his face. I and it just blew his face out and so they had to. They had to. That's when they wrote the hop scene and they had to do a whole beginning sequence. Like we gotta explain this. Because i mean my understanding is three takes. I take like boy. That's intensive. can you bring it up a notch. Take like wow. that is incredible like his. I actually started to dislodge. And then the third take they said go for and his face was everywhere and they had to put it back together. See see when they did the that's why he got the nickname mark shrapnel when the did the recent cgi Luke skywalker on disney plus. They really should have done the this brain face. It just sort of like it's constantly moving. It's like just sort of this fluid face. Well the reason i bring it up is that tyrians face does a nice little transformation does right and almost reminiscent i mean. They kinda foreshadowed this when they called him a demon monkey but we actually got to see him transform into something. That's not quite human in this scene. He does a lot of face work in this episode. Oh for sure. Partially this has to do with share walking in the room and being a total surprise right so right and especially which is great. I mean what a what a scene to right because you feel like you're like you're already building to this kind of like a moment right. He's gonna end up going to the wall and jamie given up his oath for this even if they don't pull twist of any sort near already kinda like you're invested in my house is going to turn out. Is something going to change. But then then they call the surprise witness. Yeah and it just throws the whole thing out of whack. 'cause you're like well. How was this to go down. You've already seen varis seemingly salam out right. And i think it's this is a great episode wherein in there's a little bit of truth in all of these testimonies you not seriously does tell does pretty much quote him word for word pie. Sell does say that he's gone to jail or whatever you know. He was wrongly imprisoned. Various you know verisign says very little you know basically just just enough. That's kind of his thing. Yeah yeah very says. Just enough of the truth to be misleading. And so here. We have all of these people. Using the truth and sprinkling in enough falsehood or withholding enough of the context to totally screw tyrian and when she walks in. It's like oh this is this is. This is going to be his undoing. And i want to talk a little bit about tyrians guess his intelligence or whatever because i think that there was a i think that there was an accusation of the narrative for the later seasons tyrian. Kind of get stupid. Think maybe that maybe that does have some merit. However tyrians always had this week point when he falls in love so you know his back story is that he he you know he he falls in love with this girl named tisha and basically he ends up being completely fooled by his brothers father. Both and the whole thing ends really tragically falls in love with shay. Anyway i guess the whole point is the tyrian is very intelligent but when he falls in love he can be really stupid and i think what ends up happening was shea. Is that because still in love with her. he's just seething with resentment he seething with disappointment. It's bringing back everything all of these all of his back story. He's just this. Ron nerve at this point and i think he s really stupidly. Well so he gets. So i'll i'll go. Maybe take a slightly different. Take on that right. So it's like you say behave stupidly. I would say and maybe this is definition of stupid in this particular world. he allows himself to be hopeful. i he strikes me as somebody because of his because of his Physical stature and reputation for being this monster throughout the land He sort of given up the idea that he can do much of anything else other than uses intellect and that includes his heart. So if there's ever a moment and he's had apparently to in his life where he he has the opportunity to actually use his heart and and believes that it's it's actually true feeling and a true thing and then the now he gets a glimpse of hope that he may not necessarily ever have to be introduced to and hope not just for you know for goodness but goodness in himself. And there's another element of like there's more to him than just as intellect perhaps and and whether or not that's defined as as stupid as maybe debatable. But it it certainly does let one's guard down but that could also be a valuable thing and in some degree because if he's always operating on the notion of trying to china manipulator or manage things or manage people to not ever be able to press into that also takes out that opportunity to to utilize that with other people. Know when you say hopeful. Do you mean hopeful in that. He really honestly believe that she loved him back right and so in there is a hopefulness that that his future isn't always tied strictly to the one thing that he believes he can offer right at that. There is a more of a diverse skillset and that includes the ability to be loved. And it's one thing to give love. It's another thing to receive love and to get. That is something that you know. I mean i. I think that could render most anybody quote stupid but at the same time. It's like for somebody who has just been so devoid of that but he obviously has the capacity to give it the ability to take. It is going to be something that you're to want to chase right. I mean you're going to want that to be a reality so another take on this would be. This is exactly what he wants because he knows he's gotten out but he can't he can kind of see that this is what taiwan wants is probably what he's wanted all along.

"I covered the laws of gods and men this the tyrian at trial episode. It also includes that scene with davos and santa at the bank addition to that drug on eats goats. Curious comic steve osborne seat. I'm going to ask you a question that gets asked a lot in the fandom and you can answer this however you like but the reason why i'm asking you is because i think i finally have my own answer so i'm asking you but really i just. This is just a platform for me to talk a little bit. So just what we've been doing so far. Yeah that's that. That's the premise. Sure so you're pretty familiar with the world of ice and fire. Now if you were going to take a vaca- anywhere in this world where would you like to go Anywhere home Anywhere where ser davos isn't. Because i would think i would just like a little bit of peace and quiet. Please see this is exactly what was going i was going to say. I just wanna follow around solid sawn. All day he. This guy is having the most one of anyone in the entire show. Yeah he seems to be like he doesn't want to be interrupted with the trappings of of much. That isn't his own doing right. Everyone else has problems if he could. Just stay away from davos. Yeah yeah thing is like. I think it's one of those things where it's like. Look i don't mind even like going to some sort of battle with you. If he just could could should be on a different ship for here. Yeah i get it your fingers cut off okay bro. I wonder if there's anyone that doesn't know his fingers get cut off. It's like it's not enough to just like don't take my word for it here. They are aggressively. And your face is a couple of wild leans up like north crashers. Keep have you heard about davos. You mean the guy who's got his fingers cut off your hand. He's got about thirteen thousand stories to go with any circumstance. they all usually start with. Look i'm not a learned man so he's the frozen caveman lawyer of west coast. So i love. I love salad or san and i love in for a number of reasons number one. He's living his best life church. I can't imagine. His wife is very happy but he seems to be quite happy. Everyone's heard his wife is essentially the vera. from cheers. game of thrones. That's right that's right. It'd be great if we found out that she was played by the same actress. Just her feet. So yeah i. I like him a lot another big fan of pirates just in general you love ships i but i i could be on his ship with them. I'm sure you know exa- is is it because of your deep respect for ships that the idea that there would be people that would take other people ships that just feels somehow gets it runs contrary to your to your passion. Yeah i've never seen salvatore son. Actually you know do any piracy. All i've seen him do is just have conversations with davos. yeah that would be the spinoff. No one wants or davos is the host of late night talk show and like nobody gets.

"It's it's off. I can be. I can deny responsibility right. I wasn't even there. I ordered them to to not let them him be harmed. So i cannot be held responsible for the anneli that nellie rides away like from the scene. He goes to castlerock your leave kings landing altogether. It's kind of interesting so this you'll really removing himself in from the situation so that so i guess all say is to me. Jamie comes across as more deal dastardly. In the book than the way he's depicted in the series the way they rewrote the same. Or you could. You could say look the that was a better strategic. Move what he did in the book right. Yeah dastardly. yes but also strategically probably smarter. Granted definitely definitely but later sooner you mentioned l. hidden compensate with thai win and the whether kilby cleaner not again we can read out a couple. Different ways right. One is the killing be cleaned like. It'd be dishonorable you know. And i care about my honor and morals but also just in sense of again duck more left up public not personal honor my own personal sense of honor but the how i perceive publicly people heard right. I jamie lancaster. One of the greatest swordsman read the king slayer the i killed maimed man. Like that's gonna look bad so on one having say okay. He's being honorable here. He only only was a clean kill but this is kind of like what do people think like. Oh great laster. Kill the wounded man big deal. I've often thought about jamie in terms of cheese uber ch In the sense that he he really views himself as something of an artist and he doesn't live by the rules of everyone else. In fact he really does view himself as this creature who has evolved beyond the rest of you. Know the rest of people's stupid so social mores but has his internal sense of right and wrong. Like he's going to do right by his own virtue his own sense of like what it would mean to be. The best swordsman in the land. And so he still has a sense of like a clean kill and what not but he's in care really whatever anyone else things of him he doesn't care to correct his reputation as king slayer because of course who cares what the sheep thing. He's a lion. Not that kind of thing no i. I think that's an a stew observation. I never thought of it that way. But yeah the sense i got. He's beyond the the normal social mores of good and evil. And and yeah i i. It's always interesting to me. Are these probably important especially in the books to kinda note when the term king slayer is used like who's using the term jamie hearing them used the term refers to. How does he react if he does like it will the that. That's definitely something we'll get around and re reading these books that going to be paying close attention to. Yeah it's interesting. there's this one Exchange between he and cat were she said that the hells there are hells of course and they exist for men like you and his response is there are. There are not like me. There's only me yes right so he really does view himself as sort of is a breed apart. He's a singular artist in sort of this muck and mire of of you know lower creatures anyway. He's he's such an interesting character Both in the books. And then the show i i. That character is always fascinated me. And i think one of the outcomes of this way that you just described him that makes no sense to the way in which again he's able to form very interesting relationships from yergin he'll tyrian as we were talking about to braun Reenter brienne was especially like he's open to these types of relationships with you know people that are kind of odd in the general mores of on the margin themselves even though they are sort of various in the way that they are marginalized right Well hey jason. This has been delightful. Thank you so much for revisiting. This really important moment in the book with me. Yeah definitely no. I I would say during the tation i was. you know. we're going to say the folks on just like one chapter but then once you'll reread the chapter I was like oh yeah. There's a lot here unpack and And i it didn't very enjoyable conversation. It's one of the thing that makes this. Podcast work is that you can do you. Can you can easily talk about one chapter for two hours. Yeah he could easily. We could easily go on for another hour at this point and but of course and it says this short chapter this is definitely enjoyable and Certainly yeah please keep in mind for other chapters that come up and when you think you know especially now that you've you know kind of heard some of my musings on various things as a great medieval list as an ethicist I don't think there's much there's some by something touched on the day. Like the bathrooms and stuff. Kind of bioethical You know the are a political. Let's say that's right. So yeah anything where we were. You think I'd be good conversation partner. please please reach out. I'd love to do this absolutely all right man. Thanks a lot. Yeah this episode is brought to you by fan duel.

"Father her hand to the young lord of storms end so she doesn't have any choice here so she's resigned again to kinda to that fate would also say to this raisin. There's question about kind of almost we call it the function of brothels in this type of society. Because they do they provide again. This is not at all ethically justify the sex trade or anything like that but just noting that at least in this culture in this society and again this is true of human societies throughout history right the oldest profession as they say that there's a certain function that these brothels provide because it's a discrete place for men to have these liaisons have their needs met so this needing Married or not. And it's all you know as say today on the dl right but and this is kind of the issue the next chapter right where robert sir say are talking with with dead and that's something like this girl just once you like. She she cares about you. She thinks you're gonna come back and take care of her and her child and roberson. I thought the girl had had more sense than that and camera. Was sarah say at that. Point basis says impregnated this basically teenage girl who's uneducated works in a brothel and you think she would have more sense like what are you thinking but the but the girl herself. She's kind of not playing by the rules right right like the function of the brothel is too well. It keeps the rest of the city appearing. Clean right because as long as there's shadow and then the bad stuff is done in the shadow. Then we can really pretend that everyone else's virtuous right if no exactly right Again reminded going back to medieval times here. Both saint augustine and saint. Thomas aquinas right. And i say saints just to emphasize right their status as he's revered christian luminaries and theologians of loss fers. They both thought that while any sexual activity outside marriage was sinful and so on. They both said basically. Gus said an acquaintance. Just sites of guston approvingly in this point says that Prostitution endesa respective societies should be tolerated as something legal because they feared that. If it weren't worse things would happen and interesting and then that not a lot. That's not too much different than the modern argument for the legalization of the sex trade. Yeah no and and other things as well writing interesting. So a few notable introductions chapter barra barra was with the girl named the baby. I guess the person who runs the brothel is called shit. Taya and we hear about For the first time a jamie's captain named tra gar. I think mentioned the other the other ned chapter yet. His head bashed in but got bashed in. I didn't survive. I know yeah. I don't know either anyway. So those were the some of you introductions and then notably. There's a major book difference here in in the show. What happens is native surrounded and jamie hops off his horse for single combat with ned and then one of jamie's Henchmen i guess. Sort of maims ned from behind. He clips his fires calf or something like that whereas in this depiction in the book. Jamie is going to let ned go. He's going to let ned go unharmed back to the in fact he. He commanded his men. Don't harm ned. Kills men and then ned trying to defend his men gets hurt in the scuffle because the horse falls and then he's under the horse and breaks his leg so the way that neds leg gets maimed is different in the book that in the show so i thought that was a major difference and i don't know maybe it's maybe it's just more costly to to to use a horse in that way in the and i don't know why they decided to make that different but yeah That this is a significant difference to me. it makes jamie. Even though it's a villainous episode in terms of jamie's actions handing see the justification right his defended. His is defending his brother. Who and that's always been one of jamie's kind of virtues rise that he's always stood by tyrian right when you'll say hated them and other bhosle society dismissed them raise. The imp right is on father right. You can stand on. The jamie always stood up for tyrian. And so that's that's a virtuous thing in his par. That's family honor and all that stuff as well. It's also a measured response. I'd say you took tyrian or at least you claim to have taken tyrian. You haven't killed him yet. So i'm not going to respond by killing you. I'm going to kill your men. It's almost like there's this measured response is like a tit for tat. Sort of thing where it's on. You know you. You took my bishop. I'm gonna. i'm gonna take your bishop something like that. Yeah i remember from watching. West wing introduced a defrays a proportionate response. Yeah famously. that was in one of the earliest episodes. Yeah what is the virtue of a proportionate response and there's a proportionate response always write a life for life more aid. Can it be you know again. The the overall pragmatics of what's going to lead to better overall consequences but but yeah just come back to that scene in how they do the series. So you'll say jamie's motivations are pretty much the same in both contexts. In the in the book he leaves kill his man's spare ned right seems proportionate but then in the series again we were talking earlier about sort of the honor of personal combat and looking your opponent in the eye and so even though he's more setting out to potentially harm or even kill net in that scene. He's going to do it himself lease until his man comes around and kind of the and i don't know that was like i guess it could still come across as bad. That was kind of like planned intentional. While later on. Taiwan even confronted says. Why did you let him live. And he said it wouldn't have been clean in other words. jamie's got this idea that in a because ned was clipped. Now it's not a fair fight anymore right. We're in the book. You really get the sense and the key to this is the fact that jamie gives the order to leave net unharmed and then he rides away. It's almost as if. Hey whatever happens to net at this point. It's it's off. I can be. I can deny responsibility right. I wasn't even there. I ordered them to to not let them him be harmed. So.

"Little finger of is is meant to be something of a bizarro ned. The show how how straight laced and how dignified net actually is. I guess another way to say this is. The lie stands out to me because ned has been painted as this paragon of virtue It wouldn't make any difference if little finger lied. I wouldn't even notice it i just. That's what little finger does right. I couldn't even separate the lights from the truth with them. But when ned lies it's like okay. Now that's a question. I wanna talk to jason about. Because that's significant. Yeah so i. I think everything says exactly right about Not conceived him that way. But that's definitely going to kind of picture little finger now As as bizarro ned straight and just create bring another point of contrast one of the little finger none predict compare him to and to net would be various various is almost kind of in the middle between them. And i'm bringing this up in order to create this. Yeah three point contrast an end to talk about the ethics of lying right so a lot of emphasis lot of moral philosophers and theologians consider lying to be intrinsically bad right. it's bad enough itself. Y'all immanuel kant go so far as to say you can't lie even emphasis. Save another person's life right. Even that you're doing something inherently wrong and we can never do things that are inherently wrong. Even if it's to serve some purpose right so you can their phosphorus today. Who still you kinda fend. That kind of extremist. Absolutist view about the the rawness of lying and now the opposite and the spectrum in terms of ethical theories you have what's called utilitarianism right or consequential ism where there no intrinsically right or wrong actions. There's it's just always about the consequences that were aiming to produce and are reproducing good consequences or bad consequences and in that view. It doesn't matter what your motive as you can have like totally nefarious motives evil motives as long as in the end. What you produce something good. That's okay right. And then in the middle and i'm in my job. I'm painting very broad strokes here right but in the you you have virtue theory going back to aristotle and other theories where yes the consequences matter and yes. There are certain types of actions. We shouldn't shouldn't do but what's most important is your moral character. Are you the type of person. Do you have the right dispositions. What again aristotle. 'cause virtues or the the opposite being vases these inculcated habits of thinking and acting that will lead you to do the right actions and to produce the best consequences under the right circumstances and so again. It's kind of again painting. Very broad strokes. Kindness mill road between the extremes of of this absolutism. We get from kant and utilitarianism which in itself is kevin absolutist theory. 'cause we absolutely must always produce the greatest good for the greatest number of people but it's not absolutist in the sense that there they're no again intrinsically right or wrong actions righteous on the circumstances. Yeah so with that. Let me let me just quickly taught. Yeah the three characters here right. Little finger has no virtue whatsoever. He's always just he. He lies he schemes. He does whatever he wants. Only to serve his own purposes right his own power. He's the most machiavellian of the character. Right probably in the series. In fact he'll go so far as to create chaos right and then it may or may not benefit him but he's going to try to make it benefit like it's not like he's calculating the damage before he creates the damage he's just going to create them a maximum amount of damage and then figure out what to do with it after the fact right yeah it never said he's kind of like the joker particular is portrayed in in nolan's the dark right. Yeah he's a chaos agent right exactly. It's a contrast a little finger with farris who also freely lies schemes right plants. A route spreads rumor and innuendo. And i think there's definitely some self serving this to various motivations on you know these characters are not one dimensional right. This is why we like them. Were invested in them right then multifaceted motivations and they're not none of them are morally perfect But in the end of the story progresses right fast forwarding embarrasses ultimately wanting to do. What's best for west. Rose blind to serve the seven kingdoms by. Yeah i agree with you. I do think that various really does have a consequentialist view in mind. Elmo's utilitarian because he's worried about the commoners like i think he thinks. Okay this lie will prevent that war right so this lie it's maybe unpalatable is far better than you know a thousand commoners dying in this next war or something like that exactly right so so we can you know kind of label little finger as he's not even utilitarian because israel is looking for the greatest good for everyone know little fingers at virtuous or vicious egoists right isa's serving his own ends and there are philosophers right to defend ethical egoism as really the right way to act. If you look at the reins of you know an rand and so on whereas varis would be this kind of virtuous utilitarian writers virtuous consequentialist and then then we get to ned and on the one hand. It would seem like ned maybe falls into this more absolutist camp right of. Y'all always doing your duty no matter what and so on but he also has you know a sense of the you know the greatest good for the greatest number and and the the need to be flexible and we can't be absolutely rigid and the application of all of our moral duties so there's a version of content ethics called Prima facie dion policy which is a latin terms on our medieval again He'll on first glance right on the face of things on the face of things. You ought to tell the truth on the face of things that you know. We'll tell the truth. But when there's a conflicting moral duty right the duty to safeguard his wife the duty to preserve his His masculine dignity rise. We were talking about earlier or the The preservation of. Jon snow's identity or something like that exactly. So yes are you saying. Then jason are you saying that Net is not.

"Whereas obviously jon snow has status as what's as being publicly known at least as neds bastard and other bastards that we see in the in the book and the series again have have a role to play as you said by also agree that that while one hand their status has come at the whim of their how their father owns them or not or gives them yeah some role and then had i think you're also right that they do have that more freedom because when when people have lower expectations of you Then you don't have to do as much to impress them unless you want to aspire to that higher office Another great example. I think robert would have been much happier as second son. Or a bastard or someone who could just go across the narrow sea and be a cell sword somewhere you know and he can just do whatever he wants in many ways. Robert hates the dignity of his own office because he knows he's not well suited for it. ned on the other hand so we should talk about net here here. We have someone who seems to be very well suited for his own office in the as lord winner fell. You know not really raised to do so. That was supposed to be his older brother but net this casting off his own desires his own sense of you know person hood. Because he's going to allow this. Lord of winter fell title to define him. And he's not going to dishonor that title and yet here. He is very not well suited as handed king. I think so much so that he has to just forfeit. He just has to get rid of it. And and this of course goes really badly for him. Ned had a certain degree of autonomy as lord of winter fell right and not only in running at governing so to speak but also it's his own code. I mean what he's put in. The addison situation king's landing where the mores are different. Where the office of the king and the handed the king. You have different rules. You send the sassoon's to do your work now to do your killing that. Among other the fact that the person being tarez a fourteen year old pregnant girl completely offends neds. moral sensibilities. It's kind of a red line for ned. it's like You know there's. There is such an idea for ned as sort of a a will met opponent in battle or a good kill or something like that right and then he has this. The you know these foibles about you. Know what would be considered to be To to lack dignity. I i suppose the kind of a something that you know. We have this distinction between execution and murder in our country right. I think ned very much has something along those lines. Yeah no i think very much to their. There's i'm also reminiscent here to of star wars when george. Lucas dented the concept of the united states and that they fight with light sabers versus using blasters. And so on. And it's an outline in mouth of obi when when he's presenting luke with with his father's lightsaber he says elegant weapon from a more civilized age. This notion that there's there's this romanticism about personal combat and an affair fight between worthy opponents versus you'll blowing up a planet with the death star or something like that so and i think we see the same thing right. And game of thrones wear and and also just in human history right where the you remove death from the person causing death and you know the the combination of that today is like warfare right. There's a really good movie called. I in the sky and i'm going to the store. The film Aaron paul of breaking bad fame. He plays a drone pilot whose asked to strike at this terrorist compound. What these terrorists are gathering. But knowing that much of civilians in the surrounding arab will also likely be killed by clitoral damage as they say in the military and his is bothers his conscience. It's the point being is that yeah kind were killing someone becomes a video game basically right. He's in a trailer in las vegas. Right nellis air force base killing people on the other side of the globe so this all goes back to write this. Look looking your opponent in the eye and the sense of honor killings still. Killing killing is is is never good. Sometimes it can be justified but it. So then contrasts not with jamie right and jamie sort of ambushes. Ned in his men and very cavalierly says the dispatch has met as as a lesson to humble him. You know. there's no purpose to this killing. There's no goal to begin. That's not an honorable. Kill not to mention the fact that Shimmer exactly how mean men jamie habit. Ac- like ned and his men around. No yeah totally. There's a net as two-man in in jamie's one of twenty or something like that. Yeah yeah and then picked it in the in the series as well right there just totally outnumbered. And so yeah. It's not an honorable kill. It's not worthy oppose. it's just a slaughter. Here's a question for you maybe it's unanswerable but i- curious to see how you deal with this jason white. Is ned lie. He lies here. Jamie says it's my brother you before. I remember my brother. He seems to have some trouble along. The road and ned says yes. I ordered him to be captured to answer for his crimes or something like that. But we know that. Ned did not order that. So then here's a question to you. Why why wouldn't. They claim that he did order that if he didn't Yeah great question So on one hand. A charitable reading of of. That would be the say that when a sense anything catlin. Does you know because of the relative status of women in western culture compared to men kalan has very little authority like legalistically to act in her own name in her own person. And as catlin's husband you know he kind of ultimate authority. So it's it's kinda like you know the captain of a ship right. Everything that happens on the ship as the captain's responsibility at so anything catlin or really any member of his family. Does it turns at least ned. Sense of honor probably his own conscience like a redound him. So you know. He didn't order catlin do it because she did it. It's on it's on his. So he's it's more his taking responsibility. So that's maybe his own baby. Subjective sense of morality on the other hand there's done. The politics of net is enough of a political animal to realize that a ads. The former hand the king as roberts friend he can probably take the heat in a way. That catlin can't rag. I mean he. He's just trying to protect her. I think right well yeah. I guess. I'm glad that you brought that up so i think we may have a both and situation here. I think there is an element here. Where because of the dignity of his office as the husband he kind of has to take the responsibility for his wife's actions and yet i think that there would be some sort of almost emasculation if he admits that he doesn't have control over his own wife so think that there's something about this ideal of masculinity that he's living up to that would be damaged if he were to admit that his wife has taken tyrian without his say-so now that's a great point. I hadn't thought about that. But and as a much of a paragon of virtue as ned comes across as he. Yeah he's still a fallible human being like all of us and as a man yeah especially in that world has a certain sense of masculine whether it's personal pride which certainly is part of it but also again there's the political angle of this right yes to maintain his status Yeah i if if he's going to have authority at people are gonna listen to him if he's an even without the authority of the office of hand of the king anymore. He still has his own personal authority. Right he still very well respected person which is part of the reason robert wright wants to recruit him and so kind of maintaining that public dignity and that word again y- kind of requires that he not allowed himself to be emasculated in the way you just described so per again just personal pride is a man. Sure that's that's probably definitely part of it. But i think there's also this this political necessity of maintaining face right. Yeah right. I think as we've been introduced to ned in several of these chapters. He's often. he's often contrasted with little fingers there. Those two are almost polar opposites in a number of ways and even in this chapter. You know when when little fingers in a brothel is like a fish in water. And you get the sense that you know. Net is a little bit He's gonna get in. He's going to interview interview and he's gonna leave. That's you know that's the kind of dignity in the modern sense that the net has and little finger. He's gonna you know he's gonna make body jokes he's gonna be fast and loose with what he says about. People gossip wise. He really is contrasted in in many ways with ned and yet when it comes down to it. Ned is this paragon virtue. He's willing to lie because that's what needs to happen. In that moment..

"Well that guy's okay from this set of people but then if he leaves his house you know he's pretty much in endangered anyone killing him in the medieval world they They used term that we use a lot today. But we mean something different by it and the term is a dignity or your genius toss in in latin and we talk about dignity today or that term gets thrown all around in especially in my realm bioethics debates about you know dignity of the person and deathly dignity and so on and we typically mean something that know the philosopher manual contin. The eighteenth century meant by dignity which is some sort of intrinsic value. Some sort of inestimable worth right human beings persons. You can't put a value on us or he can't wait our lives in the in the balance. Everyone's just as valuables everyone else. The with them in evils meant when they use the term a dignity. they then. This is going back to the roman empire. The turn the latin term. Didn't you toss would refer to like the dignity of an office right so they even today. We say the dignity of the office of the presidency right in the us and whether particular presidents live up to that dignity or not right and so you got the dignity of the person and the dignity of the office. It's like you said with ned. You'll yeah his office as handed. The king gave him a certain dignity. A certain moral status and and he's got a live up to the status of the office in a way that he he might not have to if he didn't have the office wrecked which is raises. Interesting questions about the nature of the office is in particular and what the dignity of that office means right so the hand of the king which in one sense means. You'll you are an extension of the king's authority. You're like the vicar of the king right. In in in ecclesia logical context. We talk about like the pope. The vicar of christ orders dickers- in the anglican church insulin. Right that is you. You're not the not the king but you just as much represent the king and the king's authority yet will be see. The various hands of the king starting from john aaron youth through dead interior and so on. They'll have their own agendas and their own conscience and they sometimes go against the king and ned tried to push that line when robber is plotting to kill denarius and when he reaches the points like yeah. I can't represent you anymore. I can't be your hand and probably with full knowledge. Because of course he he knew what catlin had captured tyrian and everything he probably knew he was opening himself up to the very type of attack attack that he experienced right. He exercises own conscience. His own dare. I say his own dignity as a person ryan moral dignity in that sense Shooting the dignity of his office. So i'm curious about this You know this is sort of a a chapter that supposes. A few things about bastards That are a little bit different in this context than we would consider that in our context. But let me ask you a question this way in that medieval sense of the idea does a bastard. Have dignity in this context. There is a particular role that a bastard of a high lord should player ought to play in the in the right kind of context right. That's exactly right to be awesome. Not so knowledgeable of medieval history to say definitively. You know especially the especially across different cultures. Right french germanic british Yell exactly what status bastards with had all those contexts. But i believe as a general statements fair to say that. Just as game of thrones depicts. Yeah being a bastard. It's a juridical claim. Right kind of has us moral connotation right that You know someone you know had a child outside the boundaries of marriage and to the extent that game of thrones religious culture somewhat mimics the western european judeo christian culture the middle period. This is a an immorality but on the other hand it's more like a juridical thang. It's more like you're you're you're you're you're born or conceived outside the boundaries of the law right the legally provided for marriage. It's not so much immoral thing born sin or something like that. It's so because you're kind of outside those jurisdictional boundaries and given that a society where certain offices are handed on through familial lines. Then you kinda have to have these these laws to govern your who's in who's wearing the order of succession right because this is going to impact a lot of people's lives right. Whoever the next king or clean is has a huge impact on on everybody's life in west arrose in seven kingdoms. And so you have to have some order yet. Some rules otherwise every time a king or queen dies. You're just gonna have again sort of hobson war as is happening. Game of thrones history to determine who wins by usurping the throne basically and so that gives order give stability to kind of had this again line of succession and he's legal boundaries and yeah within that bastards can have a status and they can move from being a bastard born to becoming basing naturalized through legal process so so it's kind of interesting status. Passers have but right the imports bloodlines to try this on for size. I don't know if i if i agree with myself on this point But one could say that. A bastard in this context would have more freedom individualistic freedom. Then you know the sun the oldest son of a high lord or something because the oldest son of a high lord has to live up to the the dignity of his father's office right in a way that they're bastard doesn't have to but is that a wrongheaded to go at it because there are just different expectations of a bastard. Yeah a lot depends on what the bastards relationship to their father you know. Their parents primarily their father is right and it seems that is very much a in the hands of the father right To kind of determine are they going to begin claim the basle like obviously robert's not claiming any of his bastard children he knows they exist but they had no status Whereas obviously jon snow has status as what's as being publicly known at least as neds bastard and other bastards that we see in.

"In addition to having game of thrones. he's also a lover of science fiction and he's actually published a bit on philosophical themes in science fiction. Stephen cover the gods of laws and men. This is the famous tyrian at trial episode by the way. I'm trying to get steve to go with me to the february. Two thousand twenty. Two game of thrones convention in las vegas thinking if we can get a critical mass together to see steve osborne set at a local club that he would absolutely go so email. Me book at bald move dot com. If you think you might go to that convention and you'd be interested in seeing steve onstage without further do here is dr jason so jason. Correct me if i'm wrong but you read these books. Awhile back enjoyed the show but you reading this particular chapter. Probably the first time you've read it in a few years. Is that right yeah. I'm a huge sifi. Nerd as you heard from. The other books have edited fan of fantasy genres like lord of the rings and harry potter and that type of stuff and and i had heard like the books you know when they first came out back in the nineties and but you'll never read them and i didn't have h. b. o. subscription at the time so i started like how you know. I'll check this out at some point. Maybe when the series is done go back and watch it all long story short. I said okay before. I'm watched the show. I want to read at least the first book and see that draws me in because he i am a book guy so i i ordered a nice hard copy edition from amazon it arrived. I read the prologue by the end of the prologue. I put my own back outgoing amazon. I ordered the other four books and the first two seasons on blu ray prologue. It's all just hook you right in. It's interesting i you know when we covered the prologue for this podcast. I was talking to a literature person. friend of mine named stephanie. Barbie hammer and i asked her if she thought the prologue could work as short story in and of itself and she said it absolutely can work as a short story and if you think about how a lot of these chapters go the way that martin writes each chapter almost has a feeling of this little vignette but that prologue impotence killer does feel like introduces the world in a very compelling way and yet You know the way that it finishes like a lot of good short stories will do. They will lieven opening to think man. I i would like to spend some more time with these people in this world. Which absolutely sounds like it worked. I always saw the interesting to to You off. I reread the books. One day kind of just read like all the chapters and then all the catlin chapters right just kind of. I've thought about that too but i i am actually have tried that. Sometimes we'll record out of order. nothing. But i'm just gonna read the you know a a few chapters leading up to that recording or something but it doesn't promise you that you won't miss a bunch of net stuff from someone else's perspective right so this book and particularly its first novel in the series. It's pretty tight. And i think that there's i think martin places the key details just so in just the right. Order so skipping around is not advantageous. Let me do a short synopsis of this chapter and we can talk about some details. Sounds all right. So here's my synopsis. Ned jewelry and have filed little finger to yet another brothel. This time roberts paramore is a young girl who still has affection for the king. The baby has black hair. And roberts knows on their way back to the castle. Ned reflects more on roberts. Other infidelities the group. Four riders is surrounded by twenty lengths or soldiers led by jamie jimmy integrates net about tyrians capture. Ned claims to have ordered it. Jamie calls for ned to remain unharmed. But orders for his men to be killed. Little fingers allowed to slip away beforehand. Joy and hugh were cut down and knits horse falls and pins his leg beneath ned. Blacks out waking to observe the empty streets and then pie cells face. He's given milk of the poppy as buy sell tends to his broken leg. So jason ebrell. Would you like to talk about a character. A theme a plot point or he show you and i just climbed the ladder of chaos. I'm always about ladders of chaos. All right ladders chaos. I have a few ideas about this chapter. But i'd like to hear you kinda ramble on a little bit. You have some experience Studying the medieval world. And i guess i'm curious. Are you seeing things in this chapter. That the rest of us mortals. Don't see because we don't have a history with medieval literature. Like you do. Yeah that's that's a great question. I i So yeah it's interesting. When you study anything from the medieval period and again i i do a lot of medieval philosophy. So there you know your your mortgage just interested in the ideas being presented and debated and argued for But then you also read a lot of ansari literature and histories biographies and so on and one of the things that resonates to me. We own the series for start. Of course see all the all the sex all the violins and people are like oh that's gratuitous and so on and my reaction was i mean that's how would have been it would have been bloody in awful and painful and of course. This is a fictional western context. But it's supposed to echo the our own medieval world. It's always a balance. Isn't it because as a storyteller you have a particular audience in mind and you have to sort of care to the sensibility of that audience. You know in addition to that you also do want to make moral decisions as you're telling the story and then there's always that fallback. Yeah but let's make sure that we are authentically representing this period with a different set of ethics. That maybe we have so yeah. It's it's always a little bit of a tricky dance. I think no i agree. It definitely is tricky. Because you don't want to be gratuitous right and certainly maybe those early seasons and and even the book the book as you all know is way more graphic at times then the series the point being is like i said is a merely to shock the audience to shock their sensibilities or is it merely to depict what this is how it would have been or is it maybe to show some consequences of this type of world you know the the further you go back in history the kind of closer you get to. What the philosopher. Thomas hobbes described as a state of nature right the the state of existence outside of civilization without laws without a morality where it's just a war of all against all and life hob says in that state would be solitary poor nasty brutish and short and of course we've never lived necessarily such a world except maybe in prehistoric times hobbes's point being. Is that without the the laws and mores a of civilization however we define those laws. Moore's remained by civilization. But we need some sort of governance and of course west rose is is a civilization they have laws and mores but it still a little bit more kind of medieval wild slash wild west type even in this chapter you get the sense that neds title hand of the king would have protected him from this attack just days previous and then he used the title casts off the title and immediately. He's vulnerable to attack. It's almost like they're living. The the people in western are living in a world where there's this really fine line between deadly peril. And so what would be considered sort of a cultural taboo you know. And it's this little little taboos that will keep people alive. You know it's like it's an it's not okay to kill your own father all right..

"I should thus have some satisfaction for the harm. This no good. No man has done me. As he spoke he drove the rim outside. But when we were a little way out from the cave and yards. I i got from under the rams belly and then freed my comrades as for the sheep which were very fat by costly heading them in the right direction we managed to drive them down to the ship. The crew rejoiced grady. It seeing those of us who had escaped death but wept for the whom the cyclops had killed. However i made signs to them by nodding in frowning that they were to hush they're crying and told them to get all the sheep on board at once put out to sea so they went aboard took their places and smote the gray see with their oars. Then when i had got as far out as my voice would reach. I began to jeer at the cyclops. Cyclops said i you should have taken better measure of your man before eating up his comrades in your cave you wretch. Eat up your visitors in your own house. You might have known that your sin would find you out and now jove and the other gods have punished you. He got more and more furious as he heard me. So he toward the top from a high mountain and flung just in front of my ship so that it was within a little of hitting the end of the rudder the quake as the rock fell into it and the wash of the wave it raised carried us back towards the mainland and forced us toward the shore but i- snatched up along pole and kept the ship off making signs to men by nodding my head that they must row for their lives were on they laid out with a will when we had got twice as far as we were before i was for jeering at the cyclops again but the men begged and prayed of me to hold my tongue. Do not the exclaimed be mad enough to provoke this savage creature. He has thrown one rocket us already which drove us back again to the mainland and we made sure it had been the death of us. If he had been heard any further sound of voices he would have pounded our heads and our ship's timbers into a jelly with the rugged rocks. He would've heaved at us for. He can throw them a long way. But i would not listen to them and shouted out to him in. My rage cyclops. If anyone asks you who it was that put your eye out spoiled. Your beauty say it was a valiant warrior. Ulysses son of lear tease. Who lives in ithaca on this. He groaned and cried out. Alas alas than the old prophecy about me is coming true. There was a prophet here at one time. A man both brave and of great stature amos son of europe's who has an excellent sear and it all the prophesying for the cyclopes till he grew old. He told me all this would happen to me some day and said i should lose my sight. By the hand of ulysses. I have been all along expecting some one of imposing presence and superhuman strength whereas he turns out to be a little insignificant weakling who has managed to blind my i by taking advantage of.

"Plucked the beam all besmirched with gore from his eye and hurled it from him in a frenzy of rage and pain shouting as he did so to the other cyclopes who lived on the bleak headlands near him so they gathered from all quarters round his cave when they heard him crying and asked what was the matter with him. What ails you. Polyphemus said they that you make such a noise breaking the stillness of the night and preventing us from being able to sleep shirley. No man is carrying off your sheep. Shirley no man is trying to kill you either by fraud or by force but polly fema shouted to them from inside the cave. No man is killing me by fraud. No man is killing me by force then said they if no man is attacking you. You must be ill. When jove makes people ill there is no help for it and you had better pray to your father neptune. Then they went away and i laughed inwardly at the success of my clever stratagem but the cyclops running and in an agony of pain felt about with his hands till he found the stone and took it from the door then he said in the doorway and stretched his hands in front of it to catch anyone going out with the sheep for he thought. I might be foolish enough to attempt this as for myself. I kept on puzzling. To think how i could save my own life and those of my companions i- schemed and schemed as one who knows that his life depends upon it for the danger was very great in the end. I deem that this plan would The male sheep were well grown and carried a heavy black fleece so bound him noiselessly in threes together with some of the with these in which the wicked master used to sleep there was to be a man under the middle sheep and the two on either side were to cover him so that there were three sheep to each man. As for myself there was a ram finer than any of the others. Swipe caught hold of him by the back esconced myself in the thick wool under his belly and hung on patiently to his fleece face.

But lead the mob with a run whether to flowery meat or bubbling fountain and are the first to come home again at night but now you leg last of all is it because you know your master has lost his eye and are sorry because that wicked no man and his horrid crew has got him down in his drink and blinded him but i will have his life yet.

"You have been eating a great deal of man's flesh so take this and drink some wine that you may see what kind of liquor we had on board my ship. I was bringing it to as a drink offering in the hope that you would take compassionate upon me and further me on my way home whereas all you do is to go on ramping and raving most intolerably. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. How can you expect people to come to see you anymore. If you treat them. In this way he then took the cup and drank. He was so delighted with the taste of the wine that he begged me for another bowl. Be so kind he said as to give me some more and tell me your name at once. I want to make you a present that you will be glad to have. We have wine even in this country for our soil grows grapes and the sun. Ripens them but this drinks like nectar and ambrosio. All in one. I then gave him some more three times. I fill the bowl for him and three times did he. Drain it without thought or he'd then. When i saw that the wind had got into his head. I said to him as plausibly as i could cyclops. You ask my name. And i will tell you. Give me therefore the president you promised me. My name is noman. This is what my father and mother and my friends have always called me but the cruel rich said. Then i will eat all no-man's comrades before no man himself and we'll keep noman for the last. This is the president that i will make him as he spoke reeled and fell sprawling face upwards on the ground his great neck hung heavily backwards and a deep sleep took hold upon him presently he turned sick and threw up both wine and the gop of human flesh on which he had been gorging for. He was very drunk. Then i thrust the beam of would far into the embers to heat it and encouraged my men lest any of them should turn faint-hearted when the wood green though it was was about to blaze. I drew it out of the fire glowing with heat and my men gathered around me for heaven had filled their hearts with courage. We drove the sharp end of the beam into the monsters. I and bearing upon it with all my weight. I kept turning it round and round as though were boring. A hole in a ship's plank with an auger which two men with a wheel and strap can keep on turning as long as they choose even thus did we bore the red hot beam into his eye till the boiling blood bubbled all over it as we worked at round and round so that the steam from the burning eyeball scalded his eyelids and eyebrows and the roots of the ice sputtered in the fire. As a blacksmith punches axe or hatchet into cold water temperate for it is this that gives strength to the iron and it makes a great hiss as he does so even thus do the cyclops. I his round the beam of olive wood and his hideous yells made the cave ring again. We ran away in a fright..

Not a man nor made in the house knew about it but only himself his wife and one housekeeper when he drank it he mixed twenty parts of water to one of wine and yet the fragrance from the mixing bowl was so exquisite that it was impossible to refrain from drinking. I filled a large skin with this wine and took a wallet full of provisions with me for my mind. Mosquitos me that. I might have to deal with some savage who would be of great strength and would respect neither right nor law. We soon reached his cave but he was out shepherding so we went inside and took stock of all that we could see his cheese. Racks were loaded with cheeses and he had more lamps and kids. Then his pens could hold. They were kept in separate flux. I there were the hoggets. Then the oldest the younger lambs. And lastly the very young ones all kept apart from one another as for his dairy. All the vessels bowls and milk pails into which he milked. Were swimming with way when they saw this. My men beg me to let them i steal some cheeses and make off with them to the ship they would then return drive down the lambs and kids put them on board and sail away with them. It would have been indeed better if we are done. So but i would not listen to them for a wanted to see the owner himself in the hope that he might give me a present when however we saw him. My poor men found him ill to deal with. We lit a fire offers some of the cheeses and sacrifice eight others of them and then sat waiting till the cyclops should come in with his sheep when he came he brought in with him. A huge load of dry firewood to light the fire for supper and this. He flung with such noise onto the floor of his cave that we hid ourselves for fear at the far end of the cavern. Meanwhile he drove all the us inside as well as the. She goats that he was going to milk leaving the males. Both rams and he goes outside in the yards then. He rolled a huge stone to the mouth of the cave. So huge that too and twenty strong four wheeled wagons would not be enough to draw it from its place against the.

"I represent all the women in athletic program and we know about the man's threatened suit and we're fully supportive of that but unless you also give women equality interns of equal opportunities equal athletic financial aid poor treatment. We're gonna file a class action on behalf of all women. Athletes in presidential athletes school so cranston became the first school in the country to be simultaneously threatened with title nine lawsuits five. Both men and women athletes for discriminating against them in different aspects of apathy and not surprisingly clemson wanted to talk. You never you never. We didn't have to so they wanted to talk. Can take it from you so bay. They reached out You know one thing. Arthur and i were willing to work together. We knew that in the end both men and women wanted title nine compliance and were supportive of each other's claims. Because you know what they really wanted was just gender equity across the board and But clemson insisted on meeting with us separately in keeping everything very separate but It was very clear from the first meeting bat. Funston was very interested in resolving the women's claims and After the first meeting that i had with their counsel they asked me for a list of the treatment in benefit issues that we could identify to help. Give them some idea in what we would be bringing in terms of you know what would be in a petition. And i think arthur can can weigh in but they were less eager to settle with the men. And we're going to stay on the we. Think we're in compliance. We're gonna to have a plan to again compliance. And we don't need to reinstate the teams so i went back to the women and i had a meeting with the women and i should say you know i. I can't tell you how many conversations that i've had with women wear the undertone Conversation is well at least we get to play right so we don't we don't have our own locker and we only have two showers that actually work in the bathroom. Three of the five stalls are broken but we still get to play night and and so. That's really the mindset that they come into these oftentimes they they come into playing the sport is hey i get to play and i get to play at clemson. I get to play division.

"The women got involved in supporting the men towards a reinstatement. Is that correct. Yes at definitely cracked and the article. I read talks about you guys. You sort of talked about your blueprint. Appo- approach where you got involved in. Take me through it arthur. There were no threats. There were no litigations. It was really kind of a inquiry level to the athletic department. A director and i do wanna get into this indies inferences made by you guys about some of the perks that football players seem to be walking around with. So i'd like to get into that. Sure so to start with while i have been doing this litigation for a very long time. I never i'd only represented And the reason primarily is because women who are being discriminated against throughout the country. Even now almost fifty years after ten nine women are being deprived of equality across the board but there are schools that ended up cutting more men's teams than they should so depriving the manon quality. And when i was contacted about this certain tom cases. I was very worried to do it because when i looked at the school that looked obvious that the way the school could make up for it and get into compliance in terms of quality was just to cut another woman and i didn't want to be apart that was when i was devoted to her and i don't think we're really passed but the school could do it. I got called about clemson because clemson. They cut the men's track field across skiing primarily black male teams. And when i went to look at it it was stunning because before the cuts were made clemson was actually providing equal opportunities for minimum. They were in compliance in terms of equal opportunities. They discriminating against women in terms of athletic financial aid in treatment but treating men women in terms of opportunities equal so they didn't have to cut anything and yet they reached out and cut is primarily a predominantly black dragon field and cross country teams. And so i came up with a strategy. And i call them. Laurie and i said so. How about we do this. We have the athletes and they had to be committed to it as well. Because the women athletes were furious. They're brothers these people practice with it cetera and they had the educated a little bit about how they were being deprived of athletic financial aid and the treatment differences were illegal and so on a friday. I sent a letter to the president of university Saying i represent the male athletes on the track field and cross country team..

How the attack on Washington, DC's U.S. Capitol unfolded: A reporter's perspective

"Insurrection at the. Us capitol building on wednesday has taking stock of democracy in america. This hour we start with gray segers licko reporter for cbs news. I was in the capital on wednesday reporting mainly from the senate chamber what started as a historic day in the capital. Where for only the third time. In history congress was debating whether to overturn the votes of thousands of americans ended with violence and tragedy full. You know it's funny. I did expected to be a bit of a weird day because of the inherently unusual thing of having dozens of republicans challenge the election results in several states which is pretty much unprecedented. Mr vice president. I paul gosar from areas does the gentleman from arizona. I rise up for myself and sixty my colleagues to object to the difficult day day which would require a lot of concentration and very exactness in my report and then everything was just flipped upside down so suddenly. You can't have electron ix in the senate chamber. Would i usually do is. I'm in there for about thirty minutes or so. And then i'll come out for five minutes to write an email to my editors. Let everyone in the bureau. What's going on. So i had actually come out of the chamber and was in the press gallery writing an email and then all of a sudden i heard a senate gallery. Staffer shout pence has left. He had just been taken out of the room. And i assume that it was for security purposes and that My first thought was a. Wow i guess those protesters outside have gotten a bit more rowdy and then the next thing i knew there was a capital police officer at the door of the senate press gallery saying lock that gohmert now just shouting it through the room and i realized oh my god this is this is serious and then the officer was telling all of us who were in the press gallery outside of the chambered me to grab your stuff and you need to get inside the chamber and we are going to lock you inside. The chamber definitely kind of illegally took my took my phone and laptop into the chamber 'cause i i needed to tell my editors that i was alive and also telling my loved ones that i was okay and next thing i knew the the doors were being locked behind us. The press. gallery sort of overlooks the senate chamber floor. So it's kind of like the lip of fish bowl and the reporters are looking over this list into the fishbowl. Where all the senators are on the floor. It was very clear that something was wrong. All senators pretty much. Where on their phones standing looking extremely stressed and there were police officers. All around the doors. Senator amy klobuchar could on kind of her best mom voice and shouted a shots have been fired getaway from the doors. This is serious. There came a point where all of a sudden senators were being evacuated and it seemed for a moment that they were going to leave the reporters in the senate chamber which would have been very unfortunate as riders broke into the chamber just moments after senators had left but fortunately a senate gallery staff shouted down. You know hey what about us. Police officers just told us okay. Follow the senators. They were literally steps away

Interview With Dr. Abhishek Pani of Bright Machines

"So i know that assembly and inspection in manufacturing is the name of the game at at bright machines. The bulk of your work there. I wanted to put in context what that process looks like. Now what what is assembly when we think about something like electron ix or medical devices and wise such an important part of of manufacturing today. So if you look at the assembly process there actually is a fair bit of automation in front part of the process but you hear about these millions of people involved in manufacturing so what part of the process of the human beings actually solving and that's typically the back end of the process which is putting things together doing inspection wooding some screws in a memory chip in those kind of activities is aware human beings are involved and so there is a lot of human beings doing these back activities and over the last two to three decades. The strategy of manufacturing efficiency has been around moving be backing of the operations to countries which have lower costs and as we know these days. Various reasons changing demographics trade policies head other uncertainties. You want to manufacturer closer to the consumer and preferences are changing. So what needs to happen is if you want to have the ability to manufacture products in a shorter duration. You need to have automation and you need to have systems that can work across diplo and the ability to move your production facilities across the globe and dot smith automation And that's actually right machines. We are trying to solve those losses. Props got into. We'll just we'll just kind of frame up the problem in the process as it is now what i really love to do. In these use cases episodes those of you who are longtime listeners will be aware of this on is we will like to talk about. What's the process. Look and feel like today. and then what's the process look and feel like in terms of where a fit into the the edges in starts to to add value. I'm imagining in my head. Abbot not being fulltime in the manufacturing space. You know we've got a press that will make the actual plastic bits. We've got you know some other shipment of all the little metal. Bits that we're going to need and maybe some of the initial conjoining of the bigger pieces can kind of happen upstream in some big automated robotic processor is flow of materials but then it comes down to putting together little pieces making sure the thing actually works you inspecting to make sure it's not danger damaged in any major way that really is you know i imagine kind of a conveyor belt again this a novice imagination but some kind of a conveyor belt with with the different pieces that i'm working with in my part of the workflow as as a worker and my job is to connect these two things in the items slides down. You know i'm doing my little piece. And then it moves down to the next person and they're doing their piece for example is this is this often what it looks like. Electric's made to get medical devices. Made other things. That need to be assembled now. I think you have described very well. That is pretty much the base process. Obviously they'll be rations on that. Depending on how many units you want to produce how fast you want to produce and there will be fetishistic systems to deal with inherent variability in your competence in the processes and so forth. But what you described is actually the in process and that current process human beings are on one part of the process which is closer to final assembly then on the initial part of the process. Which as you described as much more automated or you have components already available in shape are homeless needs to be assembled at a later stage. Got it okay. This is what it looks like now and we can talk a little bit about where. Ai fits into the mix. I imagine that there have been automation efforts to try to do some of this because it would seem to me abstract the more that we can get done really reliably really quickly and without meeting human hands human attention maybe even human margins of error the better so i imagine companies are working on. How can we have less pieces of the things fit together and we can build a more quickly. And then there's probably another phase where we have some automation of. Can we get a machine to maybe handle. Some of the initial screw is the initial bolts the initial connection conjoining pieces or whatnot. But of course we're you folks are trying to take. It is is a very granular level of almost kind of putting finishing touches on things. Can you walk us through what it looks. Like to apply machine learning and computer vision to this very dextrous tasks but this is just the kind of thing that i think many of us who are aware of the limitations of robotics no to be very very hard sure I think or commission obviously exists has existed for quite some time before we get into how they're solving the problem. It's important to understand the limitations of automation even if you was to go down that up. So the automation that typically exists in manufacturing. It's very custom so at some point. The manufacturer chooses to go with the automation solution. There will be a custom designed for that specific product that needs to be assemble and The process of doing the design takes time. It is not flexible to handle variants of the product or new product classes. It is sequence in the sense you. I needed to design. Then you need to order the hardware then you program. The robots Takes months sometimes even within a year to get the automation solution in place. Now what is the issue there if you do that or one specific product for one specific in the woods your ability to replicate that or move. That is going to be extremely difficult up. Plus you cannot deal with variations in supply chain and your product plus so what is actually good that if it take us back if you have. Zero variance usually go with deterministic approaches. But when you have very the you need solutions and that's the approach taking rare. Can we actually embiid lot of the logic. Insa fair and when i say software it is leveraging machine learning computer vision. It is leveraging the robotics and associated drivers in the cloud. Can we do that so that we are able to actually account for the ability and provide the lippi that automation requires and that also helps drive a higher. Roi through automations. I don't need to think about depreciating asset automation acid in three to five years. And then selling it for scrap i can actually reuse and leverage lot of the automation i did for up info be and that's our

But here's where to find the discounts because the holidays are over doesn't mean the bargains have stopped some after christmas. Categories are no brainers like holiday decor retailers are trying to clear out their stock. So it's a good time to get deals on holiday items. You can store and use next year.

"So being a california boy. I wasn't as familiar with lafayette radio electronics. As folks who lived in new york and new jersey in on that side of the country but in their day they were a big deal. They were a big deal. They went up against the likes of radio shack in heath kit and those kind of folks in terms of mail order electronics and they had stores to boot. I became interested in them. When i saw a few there. Stereo receivers for sale on ebay thinking. Those are the kind of cool. You know what i mean. You know when you're just kind of browsing around any go. That's a nice looking piece of equipment there. So i was initially attracted to their design but as i read up on them i saw that many people like the way they sound as well. They have that nice. Sort analog warm sound that so many people like with vintage stereo receivers and amplifiers now. They did have retail stores back in the day. Lafayette mostly in new york and new jersey as i mentioned earlier but their catalog businesses really the big deal In their lifespan. And if you live somewhere where your electronic shop was maybe a mom paw that had a limited selection or limited inventory. You could get a four hundred page. Lafayette electronics catalog and deceit everything. Everything that you wanted to see you know. The pages were filled with tape. Recorders and microphones and stereo systems. Cb radios and more and more and more they began their business in nineteen thirty-one like so many businesses. At that time they started out with a different name. I don't even recall what it was. But it evolved into lafayette electronics by the sixties and seventies You're seeing their ads. In popular electron ix stereo review in all of that and they had a number of store locations to i believe at their peak. They had something like a hundred and fifty store locations again. Most of them on the east side of the united states. The twenty two hundred. I purchased sold for two hundred ninety nine dollars in nineteen seventy six. It had a walnut. Finished would case. If feature twenty-seven watts per channel it has dual tuning a source selector switch for fono f. m. f. n. mute mp xfl filter a. and auxiliary it also had advanced features such as low noise transistors and phase locked loop stereo fm circuit for improved separation and low distortion in addition to all that it looked great. It really a a handsome looking receiver. And you'll see plenty of shots of it because i documented My restoration project of it. So you'll be able to get a good look at it. So i found my working unit on ebay for forty five dollars. It was like the perfect restoration project in the sense that with a little bit of work. And i'm talking about just a couple of hours of work. You could have something that looked ten times better than what you started with and you got it for a low price because you know one of the things about how ebay works is that is. Something looks really crappy. Obviously i mean that makes total sense right however when you know how to restore things you can look at things and say that only requires an hour's worth of work or two hours worth of work or i know how to you know. Get the part for that or or whatever and then suddenly those become you know hidden gems those become treasures that you can get a low price and then bring them back to life and you know. That's definitely what i thought i could do with this. Now it's funny. It took a long time for it to come. It came from new york. Of course right because i guess that's where a lot of those electronics are even those the mail order businesses. Well it came from new york in a large huggies diapers box that was split open on two sides and then it had styrofoam popcorn leaking out the broken areas of the box. I mean this thing. This box was possibly the ugliest box at ever arrived on my front doorstep at the studio. In fact i'm pretty sure that that driver who delivered it could not get out of his truck fast enough. You know what i mean. I i think i remember hearing it land on my doorstep. I'm not even sure if he said it down all the way i just heard this plop which probably made the seems split even more

"ix" Discussed on Stuff Mom Never Told You

"So that was very very condensed. Condensed version of what is happening Like I said these two key components were something that people are really Concerned about especially because as administration rolls out all of these new standards and if they put it into specifics worthy chain cannot be easily changed and or reverse. This is going to be a long haul in this conversation and we also want to see what happens with a lawsuit against the Department of Education in itself but as always if we have mistakenly said something wrong please let us know we would definitely love to correct that because there was a lot of stuff out there. A lot of concerns op-eds editorials that were out there that we were trying to decipher through but again about how is going to affect generations to come as well as women and those who identifies female than we know again. Many tax are happening against the transgender community through these rollbacks essentially and we need to make sure that we are advocating in every way we can for equal opportunity and equal rights. Yes yes so. We'll be keeping an eye on that and we'll certainly come back and revisit it in a full episode but in the meantime if you have any suggestions for what we should cover in any of these Monday many's or full episodes.
