But I'd like to have you react to what the current incumbent in The White House had to say outside independence hall just a month or two ago play cut. Donald Trump and the Republicans represented extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic, but there's no question that the Republican Party today is dominated driven intimidated. By Donald Trump on the maga Republicans, and that is a threat to this country. Wouldn't he be better to say that language like that, calling 74 million Americans who voted for you fascists and a threat to this country isn't that what is a threat to America? Yeah, and many more millions than that, frankly. And yeah, the threat is the tone, the nastiness and somebody has to explain maga. He could use his mega and maga means make America great again. And it's not great now. It's not great now. It's a shame. We had, as you know, we had keg, keep America great. We couldn't even use it because of what happened to this country.

"Rica when she was born in 1912, the family relocated to Jamaica after she was born and developed sugarcane fields and then bought rum manufacturing companies. Your father was born in England, his father was Irish, and was a descendant of the founders of the cross and Blackwell food company. So it sounds like, yeah, you came from a very, very privileged background in Jamaica. Your mother was friends with Ian Fleming, who wrote the James Bond novels, and a couple of the characters in his stories were inspired by your mother, which characters. One was called pussy galore, and the other one was called gosh, I can't remember I can't remember the other one, but that was an interesting main one. But it was the character Ursula Andress play. That's right. Yes. That's right. So you got your start in music, scouting records for jukeboxes. And at one time you were responsible for 63 jukeboxes in Jamaica. And for people who were too young to remember jukeboxes, you'd put in a coin or two and choose the record you wanted to hear in the record would play. What was the importance of jukeboxes in Jamaica at the time you were filling the jukeboxes? Well, if you were making a record, your best opportunity to get it played by people would be in jukeboxes because the rainio station would play usually English recordings when you for that one who was a hugely popular piano player in England or American music would be mainly played on the radio. And Jamaican music wasn't played that much. You also scouted records for sound systems, and these are the sound systems. That basically DJs would use at parties. Why were sound systems so important in Jamaica and spreading new music? Well, they made these speakers massive speakers. I mean, really, it would be like 15 foot high, you know, with huge, huge speakers. And you could hear them for 5 miles away, literally. When they were blasting in the country, and it was great. I mean, it was really exciting, and then the closer you got there, the more people that were there. And that's really where all the action was. And the people who did those sound systems, you know, carried liquor, liquor there, and play the music there and the people would pay an entry fee there. And what I did was look for recordings which I thought they would really like and bring them to Jamaica and sold it. Oh, and you describe it that it was like very competitive because each person who had a sound system wanted to have great music that no one else had. So you'd scout records, including in the U.S. and then scrape off the label so that no one could figure out what it was. So that they couldn't find it. That's right. Yeah, it sounds like it was quite a time. It sounds like very unique to Jamaica. Well, it was really great thinking back in the period in time. It was great fun, and it was really exciting when the sun systems would be blasting. You couldn't, you couldn't believe how loud they'd be, and you'd find people sometimes sleeping on the speakers and you'd think, how can they be sleeping on those speakers, you can hear the music three miles away. But they would be sleeping on the speakers because they'd been up one or two days, probably playing the recordings. It was hilarious. You decided to start your own record company, you'd been hunting for records and for jukeboxes and for sound systems and it was an exciting way to learn to earn a living and you were also very excited. By the music you were finding and loved scouting music. So you decided to start your own record company, which was Island Records. Did you have a creed when you started the company of how you wanted to define yourself and island? I just wanted to find and look for and meet talent. You know, and when there was somebody who I thought I could do something with some way I could help them or guide them. Then I would look to sign them and then you know go in the studio with them and work on the recording with them. And then release it and I'd go around the stores to get it sold. I put them in the jukeboxes, et cetera. And that's really what I was doing. And I was doing that all the time, because after the first few recordings, all of which were successful, mainly because they hadn't been that kind of music around before. You know, in your book, you write that one of the reasons why you left Jamaica and went to England is that when Jamaica was getting its independence, you felt like you were on the wrong side of history in Jamaica. And you know your parents or your mother's family had a banana plantation in Jamaica. So I'm wondering what it was like for you to work with artists, how did you bridge that gap? Did they see you as representing the colonizers? I didn't think so, really, because you know I didn't sort of live that kind of way. I was very close with jamaicans, you know, I really was, I cared a lot for them. I love them a lot. Still do. They're wonderful people. And I went to England really because I felt that the music that I was doing could really start to work in England, and I could open it up to a much wider audience and just to make it. The first big hit that you had after starting island was a song called my boy lollipop by Millie small. Now she was what, 15? When you recorded her? 16, maybe 17. So you wanted to bring her over to England to record her, but you needed her mother's permission, and she had a very unusual sound, a really kind of high pitched voice. What attracted you to her and how did you match up the song my boy lollipop to her? The song was written by Robert Spencer of the doo wop group the cadillacs. Well, I first heard her singing a song called wheel meet, and that was produced by really the top Jamaican producer in those days called Cox and Dodd. And whenever I played it for anybody in England, they would insist that I give them and let them take the record. They would leave my house unless I will let them take the record. And I thought to myself, if everybody loves this that much, I should really go and check out and see if I could maybe bring her over to England and find a hit for in England. So that's what I did. I went to Jamaica and I brought her back to England. And I also brought guitarist Jamaican jazz guitarist to brilliant musician. I brought him over to and Ernest ranglin was a guitarist, and we went in the studio. And when we produced that record, it was only one minute and 58 seconds. And when I heard it, I knew it was going to be hit. I just knew it. I didn't know how to tell you why I knew it, but I just knew it. Because it just felt perfect. Well, I will tell you before we hear this record that I used to do. I think a not half bad Millie small impression. Really? Yeah, so I would do that for my Friends. And I think it's fair to say that they thought it was like not bad. So that's good. So.

"So I to try to figure out what was going on. I bought a copy of Ian Fleming's Casino Royale. And in the book, contrary to the movie, he is playing chiman affair, and there is a lot of talk about the odds of it and whether or not the player should hit or stand on a total of 5. But basically in the book and in some literature, the rules are the same as baccarat here in Las Vegas where if either side has a natural 8 or 9 that is an automatic that automatically freezes the play. You can't draw neither side can draw third card. But, assuming that doesn't happen, then both sides can do what they want. And the banker does get to see does have a positional advantage to see what the player did and if the player draws, he gets to see that third card. So I have done a lot of math on this. And it turns into a rock-paper-scissors kind of a situation where both sides should randomize some place. The player who has to act first should randomize whether or not he hits her stands in a total of 5. And the banker should randomize the following place. If the player stands in a 5 and the banker has a 6, he should randomize whether or not to hit her stand on that. If the banker also wait a minute, wait a minute. You said, if you mean if the player draws a 5. Okay, no, if let's say that the I mean, because if the player stood on 5, why would he hit a 6? Right. So the banker would not know. What the player had. But let's say that the banker has a total of 6, and he sees the player standing. That should indicate to him that the player is happy with his hand..

The Sussex branch of the university and college union said, neither UC use Sussex branch nor UC U nationally have endorsed calls for professor stock to be dismissed or accused her of transphobia. The publicly available use Sussex statements in support of trans and non binary staff and students rejects any calls for individuals to be summarily dismissed and unequivocally supports academic freedom.

Now, the first woman ever has been chosen to write a James Bond novel. Award winning author, Kim Sherwood is to write three new books set in the iconic world of James Bond, published by Harper Collins and Ian Fleming publications. The series will explore a world without bond and a new generation of secret agents, tasked with fighting a global threat. Kim has described bond as one of the enduring loves of her life. I caught up with her yesterday on the program. I mean, I used to joke to anybody who would listen to me one day I'm going to write James Bond. But I didn't expect that that would come true. So this is amazing. But anyway, enough of talking about bond because we are moving on now, aren't we? Because this is the whole point. You have been brought in to write a trilogy about double O agents, but Bond is not in the picture anymore. So James Bond is missing, he might be captured. He might be killed. We don't know. And the trilogy will follow a new cast of agents. I mean, this is a very clever thing for them to have thought to do because who doesn't love a spy story, but it's the time is right for to modernize this franchise correct. I think so. I think James Bond has remained an evergreen symbol for Britain because he can change with us. And what I have the opportunity to do now is to expand that universe for the first time and to create an ensemble cast of heroes who we can all identify with. But in terms of who has been chosen to write for the Bond novels in the past, we've got Kingsley Amos, Sebastian Fox, Anthony Horowitz. And here you are, I mean, a relative unknown..

"Zero zero here at smart oil and gas Our oil and gas history segment for this week reads like an Ian Fleming James Bond novel very interesting The years 1974 it's the height of the Cold War America versus Soviets a very tense time Our story takes place in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and a top secret covert mission launched by the CIA to recover a Soviet sub that had sunk in the Pacific with nuclear warheads on it with secret code books and all kinds of secrets that the U.S. would love to see Soviets couldn't find the sub we found it and the name of the mission to recover the sub was project azorian Its connection to oil and gas comes from none other than Howard Hughes from Houston Texas The CIA got Hughes to be the frontman for a deep sea exploration for oil and gas using the huge glomar explorer was actually a submarine recovery mission Project is orient This is an incredible story My dad's old boss Howard to use You know what He was a real technical guy so he probably loved us but he just he lent his name to this project to help the government cover up that they were going after Soviet submarine K one 29 that sank in the Pacific Ocean The Soviets somehow lost a submarine is a diesel submarine that had three nuclear warheads on it And so with the Americans when it is all the code books and to get their actual nukes too They wanted to make a study how they built a nuke So the trick or the charade that the CIA and ultimately Howard Hughes had to pull off was to make an oil and gas exploration project looked legit on the surface but in reality underneath make it a very different mission and that was to raise a Soviet sub with nukes and secret codes and all the stuff they wanted to get As it turns out the project was not a total success but at the end of the day we ended up with some pretty valuable information And the reason they were able to pull off this huge charade was the fact that they were using one of the biggest ships of the day for offshore exploration and that's the huge glomar explorer Very amazing Yeah and so they built it and they put a drilling ring on it and they have all the drill pipe on there It was all fake And then on the bottom they hit what they call a moon bay which is something that we use in oil and gas anyway They made it so that of course in the shipyards I kept a secret they made it so that a submarine if they picked up a submarine they can bring it in So they designed this drillship to lower a high pressurized submarine that had claws on it and they're going to lower it down to the sub Grab the submarine with these claws using drill pipe So it made it look like they're drilling a well And lower the drill pipe down but you couldn't see the submarine So it looks like a drill bit coming through the Ric floor and then they attach the submarine to and they drop this thing down And then they grab the Soviet submarine Now what they had to do they had to use a drillship Then in the north Pacific which is very rough seas didn't move more than a couple of feet They had all of these computerized positioning thrusters This thing even in rough seas would sit idle in the sea It wouldn't move It's going to go down 15,000 feet Grab the sub It's got nuclear warheads on it I don't think I'd want to be on this ship myself Sure enough They brought the whole 136 feet which is the front two thirds of submarine All the way up to the ship and as they were putting it in the moon bay a hundred feet of it broke off and went back down But they kept a hundred feet and a bunch of codebooks apparently Two nuclear warheads all this stuff and it was top secret It didn't come out until 20 years later What the Americans had done You know Howard Hughes had to love the fact that he was involved in this And they were speculation There were other missions in addition to this Hughes was involved in because he was such an important contractor for U.S. government projects Has a bunch of military contracts So you know it wouldn't be unusual for them to be doing something with the government anyway So they were trying to make it so they didn't draw any attention on what they were doing Sure Nothing went in there got a bunch of stuff from the Soviet stuff They got 5 Soviet seamen and they gave them a burial at sea with honors and that sort of thing It sent a tape later on like 20 years later to the so they also recovered the bell from the ship and sent it as a gift of goodwill much later It had they done it right away That was also the semen or a radioactive So they buried them in like lead caskets What great history lesson Mark and we must thank the American oil and gas historical society fantastic website and a resource for a lot of our history segments here on the program Smart oil and gas on the air for a couple more minutes We still have time to send you the oil and gas investor guide if you give us a call So we can project for you how much less you're going to pay for this year's taxes as a result of getting into an oil and gas program nothing will put you in a better mood than seeing your own tax dollars come back to you to invest in.

Royale follows diana today. The first of the craig's films and it's an origin story That's something we've never had. The i write novels fleming rhode and really it was just that recent recently that they got the rights to do productions the rights to casino royale. Remember the spook having. Yeah whenever it was had been gone now. They got him so. Yeah yeah yeah. Ian fleming sold the rights Independently separately yeah way back in the nineteen fifties and there was actually a tv version native as nineteen fifty four. Mary nelson yeah arrest. So what so. They were quite excited to get the rights back because it was the first novel. Your first stephen fleming james novel i think that was also a reason why the producers just started to go in a completely direction. Hire new actor who he is as you probably remember will was a very controversial choice at the time He's not a conventionally. Handsome fellow in many ways ever charismatic. As is used as an actor little shorter than we're used to as well and launder on here is that was controversial. But the key thing the key takeaway with casino royale was very much reinvention of the bond formula. It's very much an origin story. Very much in the manner of christopher nolan's batman so two thousand and five number that in the whole black and white credit sequence in casino royale is really very much. heavily influenced like different than two thousand five batman film which was itself in origin story. Right and casino begins begins his five arc. it's going to culminate with no time to die. This films had some issues getting out absolutely. Yeah exactly exactly but with casino. Royale introduced to things that i think are really quite key to the craig era. One is that it provided bond with his tragic orphan. Back story that it's played out through all four of the craig's we've seen so far right it is also and i think this is the influence of Born in mission impossible it also introduced a grittier more grounded sensibility. Yes back to the bombing roots. Yeah i mean that's how fleming yeah. Yeah but they also did something else. That really isn't present in fleming. At least i would argue this. And it's certainly not very prison in the earlier pre- craig on films and that is. They introduced a more emotional more. Psychologically realistic yes. James bond yes and that is very interesting. I very much applaud them in their choice of doing that. Not how successful. That has been as we've seen it through the four films we've seen so far is a very interesting question and i think. Open to debate..

"So with the bond movies can't even do that, anyway. Take me back into the James Bond movie encyclopedia. Tell me some more about some of the anecdotes that you might have compiled or the photographs or the memorabilia, which is not available elsewhere. I do a lot of things. I mean, I work very close to the editors at Chicago Review Press to determine what makes a good entry, and I think one of the things I really wanted to do was provide background information on literally everybody who's been in the films. I mean, I have over 500 bios of people who come from Sean Connery down to the smallest stunt guy. I mean, I want people to know who these people are the other day. We were celebrating the first day that actually he's passed but of the gypsy leader and from Russia with love. His name was Francis The wolf. He's a kind of a fiery gypsy leader who is basically put these two women together in this horrible fight for the death because they both loved the same guy. I wanted people to know a little bit more about Francis and where he came from, and I do that with a lot of the characters. Ah, lot of the directors I have bios on all the directors, the writers I have a lot of information on The way some of the stories came about one of them. You mentioned the spire Love me was the first movie that you saw The spy Love me had an enormous number of writers working on it. They basically had the initial problem that this was one Ian Fleming novel they could not drunk dramatize The original Fleming novel is about a woman traveling on the east coast of the United States. And she ends up in a motel almost like a psycho type motel, And she's beset by these hoods and like three quarters through the movie, James Bond shows up and saves or well, Obviously, that was not a good plot for a James Bond movie. So they brought in dozens of people to work on this two story, And so I had a chronicle The spy a lovely screenplay wars in the book. I think that's kind of fun. I also tell you a lot about thunder ball. And the remake of It Never say Never again, which was Sean Connery's return. How that came about.

Bond Girl Style, an inteview with Dr. Monica German
"Dr Drew Thank you so so much for joining us today. I have to say that I am a huge bond fan and a have been since I was a small child and I've seen all the movies more than once source super excited to see your book come out a few months ago. Congratulations thank you. Yeah but before we get to this bevy of beautiful women who have graced the bond John Franchise for more than seventy years now. I'm hoping that we can talk a little bit about the man behind the creation of the character of James Bond who was of course Ian Enflaming and he was quite personality in his own right. Am I correct. Absolutely to Ian Fleming was a Scottish man and no so many people realize that and then and bone these also a scotsman or half is called smitten anyway so many overlaps Fleming came came from an upper class background as bond climbing works in naval intelligence in the Second World War and so therefore he had that kind of background background in espionage on the secret services in the world of intelligence which excited him an interested in so a lot of the detail we found in the if we find in the novels is very much detail that came from slamming own experience director experience hope the world and the World Intelligence Fleming also was on various. He liked sports from his days at school. Due to these middle age he also enjoyed an defying things in life. Alcohol and Fine foods sounds simple foods but rich foods while and women plenty of them many affairs he was only married once but he had many affairs before jury and during the marriage it was sort of open marriage. I'm rather mia who then became enflamming. Of course it was also very interested in in experimenting in having relationships other than within Fleming. So so there's lots of overlap savage say between Ian Fleming James on that. I think that's also why people have been intrigued to find out about about the author behind the Noble Global Sin Short Stories. Yeah and I think that many of our listeners may not have known at the bond films were actually I based on the books and the he wrote thirteen books folks and also a handful of stories and in even as big a fan as I am. I didn't realize that Casino Royale was Fleming's very first book which was published in Nineteen. I'm fifty three. And of course it's most recent film on Carnation was the first of the bond series to star Daniel Craig back in two thousand twelve so your your book looks at Fleming's writings the books and the films. Several of these films like Casino Royale were adapted and produced decades AIDS after the books are written and many of the narratives in both books and the movies surrounding race and gender. Fill very problematic when we look at them today and this is something that you confront head on in your book like you do not shy away from this at all which was much appreciated. Might you give us a couple of examples of how some of the classic themes that we see in bond can be problematic today to contemporary audiences. Sure a mean first of all I also wanted to point out the Casino Royale was in fact I adopted in nineteen sixty seven and starred. They even this was not not a production by Company that's behind the bond franchise using independent company and really it doesn't count ended unobtainable Only takes teams loosely than the sense into a rather bizarre kind of plock. Let's just just for the sake of accuracy was casino royale before Daniel Craig's star in it yet but anyway going back to your question about gender and race you're Accident Erard said when you read the novels and when you see many of the particularly early Mondays you realize particularly with today's hindsight fight. I guess that's There are problematic relationships that are going on both in terms of race ending terms agenda. He when you look against the origins of bond in the nineteen fifties. This is a moment in time where Breton while Europe the world had been shaken up by the Second Second World War many changes had occurred in the social fabric particularly off Britain. The British empire was coming to a rapid end and The gender relations had been shaken up by the war as well because Women had been taking jobs. That had been laughed laughed at without men. Men were all the front. So women had to make the most difficult situation and as a result again to nineteen four- these women were out stronger in a stronger position than they were before the war so in the bombed novels and some of the earlier earlier films you do see tensions at work bond is a very conservative bigger. He represents a kind kind of masculinity that's in any way regressive already at the time of Fleming's writing it's a kind kind of masculinity that's still thinking of you know the kind of masculine heroism the would've been fueled by the world workers offers and I kinda masculinity that was still very much British upper-class and white now the the end of the war the end of the colonial venture the end of the Endel dot kind of masculinity so bond is very much the center of a world that doesn't exist anymore or a world is beginning to vanish. This strong women around him challenge is masculinity challenge gender roles through their emancipated behaviors and patterns of behavior that appear throughout novels and and the early films. Now Bunk reacts badly today's bond is to dominate women. Bolton's bonus patronizing to them Bondi's also condescending to people of color and they race relations in the books and the early films can also be rather difficult today. Just this in this day and age. Because there is a clear binary a position between bombs upper-class wind British ways and and the ways of the foreign villains the customs of the people he encounters and interact with when he's he's overseas so yes you're absolutely right. Gender and Rice are incredibly programmatic ended and the politics attached to them are difficult but nevertheless it's skewed because the nobles in the film's expose the problems that we can then discuss today right right and ultimately you you came away with this incredibly well formed argument that as you right. I'm going to quote you. Hear a scenario analysis of bond girls exposes their performance of femininity as an active challenge to sexist and racist ideologies rather than as passive victims of patriarchal imperial master's inscribed in their clothes are multiple patterns of disruption to the political foundation of bonds world. Wow Mad writer respect Monica that those who sentences pat quite the punch. But I'm hoping that you might. I establish some of the mainstream expectations of women. During Fleming's era in terms of femininity. So that that as we move on we can establish how this archetype of the bond girl really kind of stands in contrast of course so after the war women We Are we understand. Went back to SORTA fulfill they more traditional feminine roles that they had been performing before for the Second World War so there's different cycles during the twentieth century both worlds shaking up the gender roles that had. I've been in place before the war so after the nineteen forties in the nineteen fifties wage in regard. Thank you as a conservative day. Kids is they were women. Well go back to the kitchen. Go back to being homemakers family. Mothers wives Supporting their husbands in their missions. They rolled their professional careers and they're therefore even fashion.
