The i was the decision to take the hastings cutoff and untested shortcut that put the travelers behind schedule in fighting heavy wagons and exhausted animals. Slow them down further by the time they traipse through the sierra nevada's winter at already begun and with it of fatal snowstorm. Thompsons hands trampled. She rang out the rag.

If ice she rose slowly to pull the flaps shut then looked at george i g shuttered. Then he lay completely still is is open and unseen. She held her hand under his nostrils. No breath he had died after all that she had nearly missed it. She expected more of a spectacle. As george always liked attention.

And there is no resume quite as legendary or as mythical as that of the late josh gibson. The catcher that satchel page once unambiguously deemed the greatest hitter. Who ever lived. So i called up shawn gibson. Josh's great grandson and the executive director of the josh gibson foundation to understand what mlb's decision to elevate his great grandfather means to him.

Ona understand josh. What you heard growing up from family from friends about how your great grandfather considered his own career compared to those who had the opportunity who were afforded that opportunity to play in the majors for jars. You know and the other great negro baseball players you know. They knew they were great players. They didn't even know by to tell him that it was just a decision At that time it was in that era. that kennesaw mountain land is denied the opportunity to play in the majors but did not stop him. They barnstorm against a lot of white baseball players. And you know as well as we know. I know is that a lotta times. They beat the white ball players in. So that's something right there. And so when i totally stories just in our family. There's we call josh gibson big josh. 'cause josh gibson junior of course is the sense that you can't say jockey get confused. I wanted to ask you about one of big joshes more famous nicknames. He was called very famously. The black babe.

Stevens is bait roof. Great grandson and so we always talked about. You know josh gibson's compared to my grandfather. And i'm like well that's what you but if you ask me about.

Ruth bill in ice t's brent are okay but who hit the furthest home running stadio i give them on that one. Well i mean. I want to even push that. Story further sean. Because i grew up going yankee stadium. He's the only human being to ever hit a fair ball out of the park out of the house. That babe ruth ledley built. I don't want to rub it in his face to.

Learn To Listen To Yourself by Krista O'Reilly-Davi-Digui
"Learn to listen to yourself by krista o'reilly davig magee of a life in progress dot ca one of the greatest gifts. Anyone can offer me is to make me feel truly heard like they care what i have to say and how i feel no judgment are trying to fix me the gift of a safe space to hash things out and express what is on my mind and heart so that i can heal and gain clarity and have the courage to move forward. I shared how this might have helped me when as a teen i wanted to die. I don't need you to tell me what to do. I usually already know. But when you hear me i feel loved. I released shame. And i gained courage to take yet another stab into who and how i choose to be in the world. But here's another truth. We turn a coaches and counselors sisters and girlfriends to be heard. Do we offer ourselves the same precious gift do we practice hearing and honoring ourselves first offering our own person. The grace and compassion that we seek from others. Do we have the courage to look inward and learn to listen to what our minds bodies and spirits are telling us. This needs to be the starting place. We need to learn to listen to ourselves. We read every new book. That comes out travel to conferences. Jump at the chance to hear that guest speaker. We constantly gathering information. Jump on board with the new fad eagerly. Try out a new pill or the new program hoping that we will find the answer. We seek outside of ourselves. Talking with our best friends offering are well thought out. Opinions on social media and monthly meet ups with a life coach also repurpose but becoming more clearly ourselves figuring out who we want to be what we need identified a real passion or gifts we wanna bring to the world putting our finger on the place of unrest the root of our disease these all come as we learned to listen to ourselves. We so desperately wanna be heard so let us practice hearing ourselves with practice. We become better attuned to what our minds bodies and spirits are speaking quicker to trust a still small voice. More confident that we already know what it is. We need or that. The answer will come and we have only two still ourselves and listen. We can practice listening in myriad ways but today i want to offer some questions we might use as we practice pause go inward and learn to listen number one. At the end of the day we can take a few calming breasts and simply asked. How did my day go today. We might take note of three things. We agreeable for two things. We did well today. One thing we would do differently next time this way we can be into live more mindfully number two when strong emotions bubble up. We can get a loan for a minute and ask. What am i feeling right now. Spilled milk is probably not. The real issue is more likely that there is a deeper root of fear or overwhelm lurking beneath the surface. We can create space for tears. If need be pleased create space. Tears remind ourselves that our feelings are not bad not rage nor fear. Anger sadness grief loneliness pleasure or delight and pay attention to where that emotion lives in our body and our tents shoulders are temples are clenched fists or jaw. That throbbing pain in our legs will begin to see more clearly. The connection between our feelings and our physical symptoms number three if a strong urge to binge arises. Whether on netflix sleep food or alcohol we can notice pause and listen in after asking. What do they truly need right now. We might notice that we are physically or emotionally. Hungary incredibly tired afraid or excited when we do go ahead and eat or take some downtime. We can check in and ask is truly nourishing me as a way of getting clear on what it is that actually makes us feel well fed rested so that we begin to live more intentionally rather than on autopilot number four before pressing by now or signing up for that course or saying yes to one more engagement we can breathe and pause perhaps. Take a twenty four hour pause and ask. Will this truly serve me right now. We consider if it aligns with our current financial or life goals marvin honors the season. We are in. We might ask if we even truly like need have room for this new item food or experience or if we are simply afraid of missing out acting on impulse numbing or following the crowd and little by little we will begin to live more authentically
Three Weeks Until Britain Leaves The EU And What Needs To Happen
"At the very real risk of causing listeners to drop abruptly dead with boredom and irritation brexit apparently down to the wire in the loss ditch behind the last chance saloon not the eleventh hour with the clock ticking deafeningly etc ad infinitum three weeks from now the uk will have exited the transition period and be entirely out of the eu. But we still don't know on what if any terms it is said that absolutely everything must definitely be sorted out for certain by sunday but we have heard this once or twice or several dozen times before. I'm joined with more on this bilateral price former director of communications at ten downing street Let's first of all to the field of political communications. Boris johnson as we heard the top of the show says a strong possibility of no deal. Is he lowering expectations before coming home. Brandishing some sort of bogus triumph. Or is he actually lowering expectations. Well is definitely a lowering expectations of there being a deal. So that will all talk about how often it would be if there's no deal and he can then Wave flag come whatever day. It is won't be sunday but whatever it is and say actually. We clinched victory from the jaws defeat. We gotta deal. Is this brilliant. And it's nothing like as bad as you will vote. Who's going to be will still be dreadful. It'll still be a very bad prospect for the united kingdom in all sorts of ways but nothing like as bad as the no deal what he likes to pretend is in australia which it is and which would be absolutely catastrophic. Ns malcolm turnbull. The film started. Prime minister was saying on the television last night. Even australia doesn't like the australian deal. Are we then looking at a classic from the populist playbook then you create crisis pretend to have solved crisis and then claim credit. Pretty much You you you create barriers to deal which he certainly been doing and has been doing that all the way through. And but at the end of the day if true to form which is what did over the withdrawal agreement which put us into position the at the moment during this kind of interim period just as he did then he caved at the last minute maid not massive concessions to the other countries of the european union in order to get that withdrawal agreement over the line and unless he's prepared to take not only the the huge economic hit to the uk economy but also the massive political hit to his own authority as a result failing to secure a deal and this is prepared to accept all of that that. I still think he's gonna come back with the deal. What do you make all of australia style. Though as an example of political salesmanship of main speaking as destroyed on trying to take it as a compliment but does boris. Johnson assumed that there's some sort of subliminal association between australia and sunshine and vast skies and amusing hoping animals. Yeah i think pretty much the he is. Because of course you could describe it as i said on your program and down to go as the nepalese deal although zimbabwean deal or whatever any other country that only operates under world trade organization rules. He calls it australian australian style deal. So people will think austrailia right. You know we have been there. We we certainly know that the country seems to get along. Fine service okay for them. It might be okay for us completely ignoring the fact that we are totally different economy with a totally different level of penetration to the european market and as mentioned a few minutes ago even the australians. Like what he calls in australia and deal. That said might there be part of boris johnson. Thinking i mean alive though he may be to the potentially dire consequences of no deal. If he's thinking about this brutally politically he owes his position certainly owes his majority substantially to that base voters. Who really won't be happy until we've up the channel tunnel and who would regard any deal as some sort of betrayal and might he be thinking of them and also thinking that the people who wanna deal aren't the kind of people who are going to vote for him anyway. well hostile. He isn't he of those people which is why he's seeking right way to the very very bitter end which were not yet is trying to persuade those people that he is the biggest brexit in the room he will out brexit any of them. He'll be absolutely fervent in his determination to stand up for produce suffering j. and stick tiffany's is up to the european union and just as they would like him to do so that he minimizes the scale factor from them. Come the deal when it does come over. They'll still be a bit of squealing and effectively. Sort of makes them impotent. They can't do anything about it because they were at a time to think about it. They'll be absolutely no possibility of reworking. The deal that he comes forward with and so he's he's got an eye to them the whole time but he's also got an eye to the public as a whole. They are a minority within a minority. The real hard line. Brexit is of kind of ra minority within a minority. He's going to have to fly to general election sometime what he's going to need to show that he's kept the union together. I mean it would be a massive threat to the union whether to breed no deal the union with scotland and the rest of the united kingdom. And he's got to show that his government is competent and capable of delivery on but it says it will deliver. He said he would deliver a deal. It would be a gift to the labor opposition and secure stom- if he fails to do so and all the consequences of no deal all the economic consequences that we've talked about so many times in board our listeners to death with over over past months and years would be at his door. I just simply don't think that that political risk is worth taking in order to be the hero of a bunch of people. Who frankly i'm going to go you did intimate earlier in this conversation. However that you didn't think they would be a deal by sunday so if not by sunday then by win because december thirty first is not far away yet. Well it did it start. It does have to be by december thirty first if that is the absolute deadline that you can't you can't calendar december thirty first comes off after sympathetic and comes before january first and that's just a fact but it doesn't have to be by sunday even if you look at for stunts on the sediment alert delay. Who said that. They say that by sunday. They need to know whether it's possible to get a deal not to actually have the deal now if you may remember the back in july. That was the deadline. When boris johnson said we had to know whether it was possible to get a deal. And if you wanted no deal then we could all be ready for business could be ready for it. We could have got along that path if that was the party wanted. All of that says to me that that isn't the party wants. So when does it have to come. It has to come by the last week. In december the european parliament think has indicated that they would be prepared to sit between christmas and the new year as they have to ratify ahead of time british. Mp's could be cooled back to the house of commons screaming In order to do the same. So and the absolute deadline. It's literally you know days before the end of the year loans prize. Thank you as always. We will doubtless have more from you on that subject. In coming days and weeks
Interview With Chris Kermode
"Let's here in the meantime from the interview. That i did today with chris commode who was formerly a colleague of mine at queens. He was the tournament director for a long time. queens and then moved onto the atp. The end i think of twenty thirteen spent six years in the job and first thing i asked him was really how he looks back on that time in his life. Many people have asked me that question and in fact they phrase it differently. They would you do it again. And which which is slightly different i. It was a huge honor to lead the organization and it was an incredible six years and yet thoroughly let south thoroughly enjoyed that there were some very heavy moment Very stressful moments. But you know to have to have the chance to Lead a global sport was fantastic and had a year to sort of contemplative. And when you earn your blight issue sometimes get so immersed that you fail to recognize the achievements to the thing but you know i know back in some of the numbers that quite an impressive aren't very proud member. You're just looking at things like the gross revenues of the tool. Were twenty thirteen. We're about ninety. Seven million and two thousand eighteen goto grew to over one hundred and fifty million of the prize. Money again went from eighty five million twenty thirty two hundred thirty five million so fifty eight percent growth the number of players. Earning over a million dollars in prizemoney grew over ninety percents which is great britain about our ranked players. Earning money one of the personal achievements. was that the. The big growth was between really between players between fifty and one hundred sixty nine percent growth in hundred fifty to two hundred sixty five percent growth. So that redistribution of monies downs the lower ranked lies was was great and the same with ranking points. As well and as the players the pension funds just went through through the roof which is key for these guys when they stop stop playing like a sixty percent growth in the pension fund so looking at the new events. She look at the finals. Look at the next gen and the car you know there was a a hell of a lot done and think we moved the game forward and when listening to that out. Imagine a fair. Few allison's are thinking well. If that's the case why are you not in the job right now. Why what can you tell me about your departure. And what led to it. Well i think it's a very political job. I've seen an ascetic in the job. And i will continue to say it now. I'm very very supportive of the atp as an institution. I actually believe works. There are many people the can make very easy comments from the site saying it's just impossible to have a player organization anna tournament organization together. My line to that would be that. It's one of the few sports where players and tournaments have a say in their spore. You know on a daily basis. Unlike say some of the american sports where you have collected bargaining agreements and they have a big fight over over prize money every o or income over every five years as a huge fight and they don't really speak the reason i think the hp structure works is people do have a voice on on a daily basis. And you look back know over all the votes that we have and you know it was almost ninety. Eight percent of the decisions were made in consensus. Which is which is great oversee. I sat in the middle of players and tournaments at certain times of the six year. Tenure people say he's a tournament guy. He's a player guy. You speak to the tournaments. They'll say he's a player guys because the players they say he torn guy that's just the nature of the jaw.

Helping Kids (And Parents) Cope During COVID-19
"For the kids in our lives and i'm talking children and teenagers. The last eight months have been many things. Maybe it was fun at first. I know it was for my kids. When the possibility of school closing felt more like a snow day or maybe five snow days. Yeah but the novelty is way gone now and it's been replaced for many people with frustration sadness apathy eight even depression anxiety in kids wondering will i get sick will someone i know or love. Get sick so we are going to start with a little bit of good news. That should help. Ease some of that worry the next couple of minutes through takeaway number one. We're actually inviting you to listen alongside your kids. Yes so go get your kids. Put us on pause all right so hopefully. Now you're back with your kids. Hello kids ankori manja. Thank you for joining us. We're going to try to make this fun. So i called up one of the most respected medical experts in the country when it comes to things like the corona virus and i asked him to talk directly to you. My name is john. I'm a doctor. And i'm a public health a right. This is actually harder than what's a good way to describe me. Well one way to describe him is. He's dean of the school of public health brown university. And for you kids out there. What you need to know about that is he. Basically studies not one patient at a time. But how we all as a community and as a broad community a country how we get sick in patterns and how we can take care of our. Dr jaw says one of the biggest things that we've learned about the coronavirus kids is a kids generally. Don't get very sick from this virus so for most kids. Dr joe says corona virus is almost like a cold but this is still really important. Kids need to make sure that they do not spread it to other people and that's where the science has changed a little bit so you probably remember early on when everybody was like. Wash your hands. Wash your hands sing the birthday song twice. Don't touch your face. don't touch anything. Well that's not necessarily wrong. Dr john says but we don't think that it spreads so much from surfaces though. We do still think it's important to wash your hands. The most important thing is really about making sure you wear a mask and keep some outages from other people and that gets us right to take away number one pretty basic but apparently some people still need reminders. Share mask so when you talk when you breathe when you cough basically the air that comes out of your mouth can have the virus in it so we tried to come up with a metaphor comparison. It's really gonna help you. Kids understand why. It's so important to wear a mask and what we came up with. Dr john is your mouth works. Kind of like a can of bug spray so when you push the button on the top and droplets come out. Well works the same way when you open your mouth and you talk were saying or you cough droplets that come out of your mouth. Might have covert in. Even if you don't feel sick right now so now imagine what happens if you put a mask over that kangbuk spray sort of a funny idea putting a mask on bug spray but if you did the amount of bug spray somebody else would get is very very tiny so you can think of it this way. We wear masks to protect ourselves but also to protect others and that is really cool because you know who else was a mask to protect other people. I know you're doing a great job. Being superheroes and i just want you to continue to do it. That is a friend of the show. Rosemary truly oh. She works at sesame workshop. She is one of the very smart people behind sesame street and this superhero image rosemary. Says is a great opportunity to help our kids feel powerful. Edifying when you know. Everybody feels kind of powerless. So she wants all of you out there to know you are playing such an important role in keeping others around you. Healthy except for batman. Somebody really needs to tell batman that his mask is upside down. Yeah he should probably call somebody about that now. If you're a little bit older it might not be a bad idea to take this a step further. How are we going to be up sanders and make sure that everyone in your friend group is staying safe. you know. Maybe you're hanging out with friends and the park. Maybe somebody's mask slips down. You could try saying something like maybe like. I need to get my grandma safe. So do you mind taking a step back on your mask. All the way i want us all to be safe and be able to keep playing together can kind of try it out because people feel shy about this. Even grownups feel shy about it. Honestly i it's good to practice all right so the kids part of this podcast is over now so i just wanted to say to all of you out there. Thank you for. Listening was super fun. Yes and thanks so much for keeping everybody safe. I just want to reassure all of you. What your mom and dad or your aunt or uncle or grandparents have been telling you. This is going to end all right. Just keep
Why do practically all of us need our wisdom teeth removed?
"How's it possible that we all need our wisdom teeth removed. Well let me give a little background. I okay go for wisdom teeth or the third and last set of our four molars and the biggest ones that you get in your mouth at least that most people get in their mouth somewhere between five and thirty seven percent of people. Don't get all four and some don't have any at all but most folks do in. They usually start to come in between the ages of seventeen and twenty five which is why they are called wisdom teeth because they are older and wiser in theory than baby with emphasis on in theory. Exactly i have always wondered about that. Well i'm glad i could be so. Yeah it's pretty crazy that you're still growing teeth into your twenty s it really is and then. They often are removed shortly thereafter. But why well according to web. Md it seems that ninety percent of people have at least one wisdom tooth that's impacted. this means it can't come in like in the normal way because it stuck on the tooth next to it usually sort of a forty five degree angle ish and pushes into the side of that tooth and although the sound awful you probably won't even feel any pain but it can cause problems later on when the wisdom tooth weakens the root of the molar next to it from that constant pressure or when you get gum disease for it or more cavities or whatever so your dentist may want it out before it ever causes you any trouble so either. The tooth is growing weird. Or your mouth simply doesn't have enough room for it or both. Yeah but your dentist will be keeping an eye on this and will advise you on what to do. And by the way this is different than hyper donncha which is when you have too many teeth so an adult should have about thirty two teeth. If those thirty two don't all fit in your mouth you may have to have your wisdom teeth pulled but if you have more than thirty two adult teeth you have hyper donncha which basically just means you have extra teeth. We'll put some crazy extreme photos of this in our show notes. If you're interested no lord now everyone's going to go to show notes for that and not for the main topic of this podcast. I'm just saying you should go to our show notes for both reasons. That's all and because some of those photos are really wild. I've been down a rabbit hole all day. You know freddie. Mercury had hyper donncha. He did yes and his case was more typical. I think he had four extra teeth. But i've seen photos of people who have like an entire extra set of teeth but anyway back to our main questions. Let's get back on track. Can it be that. Ninety percent of us are flawed. In this way well. The answer is simple evolution. And by the way we're not going to try to jive evolution with christianity in this podcast. Although i'm sure that topic is covered elsewhere and some other podcast for our podcast. Let's just say that. Many scientists believe that overtime our jaws have moved to become smaller and more narrow in. This means that teeth at once fit easily into our gigantic freak mouth usually do not fit anymore we we used to need those molars to help to rough or hard items like nuts and roots and meats and leaves but now we use forks knives and spoons and eat softer food. So we really don't need those anymore in our mouths have just adjusted for that. Yes evolution but pretty cool and of course it makes total sense. I also read on health. Line dot com that the wisdom teeth were like replacement teeth in our distant ancestors to replace other molars which had likely decayed or come out by then. Y- scientists classify wisdom teeth as a vestigial organ or novum saying that right Which in that's v. e. s. t. I g. i. a. l. which basically means it something. Anatomical that no longer seems to have a function or a purpose in our bodies. Other examples are goosebumps The appendix The tailbone ear muscles tonsils nipples on a man hair on our body and the knicks membrane of your eye which is that pink thing in the inside corner. And i'm not sure if i'm pronouncing that right so the muscles are important for you honey since you can make your ears move though that's true. Well port hardy tricks anyway. That is also fascinating and probably worth an entirely separate podcasts. Because i never thought that we have a bunch of body parts that we no longer need. I wanna find out about goosebumps but go ahead and the appendix like so. Many people have to get that out right so anyway if ninety percent need their wisdom teeth removed. What's up with that other ten percent. Do they have big gigantic freak mouths like you mentioned well. People in that ten percent have healthy. Wisdom teeth fully erupted and that sounds awful but it just means that they've grown incompletely and our position correctly and are binding properly in could be clean as part of their normal daily hygiene which means they can get to them to clean them. So this is how the mayoclinic determines whether wisdom teeth might be allowed to stay in your mouth. Sometimes these molars can even grow in horizontally or partially emerged through the gums and this is ripe for bacteria so they'll be removed if that occurs. Remember when you were getting your wisdom teeth removed and afterwards the oral surgeon told us that you really didn't need to have it done because you had plenty of room in your big gigantic freak mouth. sounds familiar but i may have still been under the anesthesia at that point. Well evidently you one of those ten percent that have a big giant. I'm just enjoying saying big giant freak mouth right now you know. It's really painful for me to talk about teeth stuff though. No and i'm surprised you chose this topic. I guess i was just thinking of it academically without having to actually talk about dennis and teeth and look at pictures online. I'm actually feeling kind of squeamish right now. Okay let's move onto the list squeamish stuff then okay. The debate about removing wisdom. To yes please. Dennis are actually torn on whether all of the preemptive wisdom teeth removals are in fact necessary. Yes as good to be proactive. And yes you want them out. If they're going in in a way that will mess up your perfectly straight in wonderfully aligned post orthodontic treatment teeth especially if your parents have spent thousands on exactly in. Yes you would want them out if they're causing you any kind of trouble at all. But what if they're not what if you don't even know that they're they're maybe they're crooked maybe they're impacted but they're not affecting your bite they're not causing you. Pain not becoming havens for cavities. Should you get them out. We'll some dennis. And i think most in the us are in the camp of simply removing them always to avoid any potential future problems. And i understand that. That makes sense being very proactive in conservative others like the nih equivalent in the uk. However say that if they're ace symptomatic without any symptoms pain issues. Leave them be because there's no real evidence to suggest that they'll cause problems later. And therefore it's not worth the expense and the risks of the procedure and understand that too and that makes sense to so regardless of which camp your dentist is in here. She will monitor the growth of your wisdom teeth and how they affect your other teeth and your oral health in general ask a lot of questions do your own research and make a decision. That's best for you absolutely and if you do have to have your wisdom teeth. Extracted fear not. It's honestly not that big of a deal mark and i both had to have ours. Cut out 'cause they were impacted they put you to sleep. Or maybe you're wake but you certainly don't feel a remember anything when you wake up you eat soup and soft foods for a few days in your mind.
How Tall Is Mount Everest REALLY?
"Okay lauren fire. Today we are talking about mount everest. Which is the highest mountain on earth when you measure from sea level and today we're focusing on how that measurement is made weird we start. How about some old timey newsreel resort evidenced bothering his survey of eighteen hundred and forty one estimated his height pinton nine thousand feet back in the nineteenth century. When george everest brit was the surveyor general of india the used trigonometry to measure the height of the mountain like what we learned in middle school points angles and triangles totally. Yeah and incidentally the mountain got its english name from sir george everest but it was actually an indian mathematician. Radin seek dr. Who did most of the work and actually figured out that. This mountain is the highest point on earth. That sounds right for colonialism. Totally yeah okay. So how accurate was this trigonometry. Approach will i put that question to be nagaraj on. He's a geoscientist. One of george everest's successors at the survey of india office which still exists about is now staffed by indians. In fact i was sitting in the same chair. Our team location. Where you're sitting. Because i didn't want to change the room. So he says the trigonometry that his predecessors use throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was surprisingly accurate. I mean the standard height. Everyone now uses for everest that twenty nine thousand twenty nine feet. It dates back to nineteen fifty five. Wow that's pretty impressive. Okay so how did they actually calculate that measurement for mountain like. Walk me through it. It was not easy. They measured it from eight different points throughout langdon distance and everything and computer and took the mean. It was a very difficult matter very heavy machines. Heavy machines called theod delights instruments used to measure angles between visit points on the horizon and vertical planes like a cross between a telescope and compass. You might have seen municipal surveyors using them sort of on a tripod. Oh ya know. I've seen those folks reflective vests and their little tripods them. Yes yeah okay. So but for measuring mountains. They are these big heavy versions. I don't know how many hundreds of kilograms they carried forward to make this measurement it has slowed colored most of the time we didn't know work so the foot that was put on. Who's very difficult nowadays. Nothing much what the chinese are doing. Our a nepalese are doing their hypic instrumentation with the chinese and the nepalese are doing now involves satellites so instead of measuring everest from afar on the horizon with these theod delight contraptions these send a team up to the top of the mountain with a hand held. Gps receiver hey. That sounds like a little easier to me. Maybe but maybe not. Here is d nash mandar. He's gps expert from nepal. Who teaches now at the university of tokyo. It's a very harsh environment. There that very windy and you have all these battery or power problems and like the people who climbed everest. They come steadier probably more than half an hour. I think that's limit for them because they already exhausted. So they've got thirty minutes to connect to multiple satellites because they are solar flares and interference. at altitude. You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall. Dividends did this much healthy that who cares you know because she missed the learning that teaching how people understand how do people perceive almost put in what model you used. Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on. Everest has all these practical applications from agriculture to defense and scientists say if their research gets more eyeballs because it involves the tallest mountain in the world. Hey that's a great

"jaw" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"Wanted to be an octopus. Tentacles. In Gray. I do love that with the with this idea that you know you have a successful movie N. Hollywood just Kinda goes right? There's a formula that right we need to do this but but with a ban over the. Facial. Anything, just I need the money just that kind of desperation. Is like the style was whenever he went out and just tried to make space fantasy movie but kind of. Get what the ingredients were. We'll go that. Cruel Jaws that movie just if you liked jaws and he just wanna see everything Kinda like taken and put under Xerox machine and then Xerox one, hundred times I mean it means Xerox's the Xerox's rather than just making a hundred copies of the same item. That's that is so much that movie that is crazy how Just what a weird Redo of jaws that as. The Italian one. Yeah, it is. Sometimes it's called Jaws Five I've seen it listed have. The beast as well. It was cold. One time again adult, which one is the one with the Vic Morrow and Chamberlain let's see. Yeah I think that is it. The famous. It wasn't floating chains. All I. Want to say that the beast might have been all okay James Franciscus and Vic Morrow Yep Yep the last shark I. Don't I've never seen that one. It's something. But you look on all of these posters and the the shock is in pretty much the same pose as the original Israel's post out or a frame was enjoy. I think that the beast might have been a different one and I'm trying to remember if that was the one that was. There was a TV movie that was made. which was based on Peter Benchley Book. That was an octopus movie wasn't octopus movie and I want to say was that the one with? William Petersen and yes, it was as whip Dalton. mazing they and Mary. Drake was Larry Drake Larry. There you go. I've never actually seen I read the book when it came out but I never saw the. Movie I've watched it, and basically as you go through that movie, you can just start quoting things from jaws as you watch it like like just implied lines rather than actual quotes from things. And cruel jaws I seem to remember being a mix of jaws plus a little bit of jaws to in there. I was glad to read more about the Dorothy tristen script for jaws two and more of John Hancocks version of. Joss to what a troubled production jaws two was just to hear how they were shooting it and then had to reshoot it at I had no idea about those stories. You guys sit on jaws to how do you guys feel about the actual movie I haven't seen it in thirty years I. Think I saw it on TV here in the UK when I add `and I just remember the demise of the Shaw than the film itself because it was like how they going do this time and yeah, I. was. I was Jiang on twitter last night actually sang should I go and what again and it was divided completely divided fifty fifty yes. Gray is still a sprinkling of the magic of Joel than. Joan. Williams, and you know always shied about the other half was I do not watch it. It's a terrible movie is going to sell your memory of Jules. Silence to on show about one day. What do you think about it? Think it's OK You know the problem is, is the obvious when they're just can't be jaws to. It just can't be and I think Scheider carries it. In the Williams score filled a lot but it just. You can't do jaws to it just can't be done. Story ended they kill the shark you know the changes of another big great weight showing up at amity three years later out very likely. I think I tried to watch a bit event. I was doing inside didn't want to kind of sully my. View on jools itself, and I did watch maybe like fifteen twenty minutes and it felt kind of amateurish alongside Joel. It fills very low budget yet. I didn't. I didn't want to continue. I seem to remember as much as I can remember lines and just little. Physical attributes things like that. When it comes to jaws, I have the worst time remembering jaws to because I know, I've seen it multiple times and I most remember Keith. Gordon being an APP. Just because he's kind of a friend of the show and I think I remember the beginning with Murray Hamilton and I was just very surprised that he could still be reelected..
"jaw" Discussed on Unspooled
"Into a movie next week that I have never seen. Really, I am exciting. I have never seen butch cassidy, and the Sundance Kid I know who's in it I kind of what it's about, but I've never actually seen it and others. A bicycle built for two or maybe a bicycle built for one, but to be berated. That's about all I know. So throw to you. What should we ask people to call in with as we are? In our final three I? Our final three films I it's going to be. We want to make sure we have good good questions. We great responses this week to our jaws question so. What are you thinking any which we ask people to do? Okay I have an idea you can veto power, but let me throw it out there. Of course Robert Redford went on to form Sundance, the greatest film festival in America that really changed how film festivals restructured and as very much a theme in a style of its own, the Sundance brand which is evolving, but there's a sense brand. He named it of course Sundance after this character. What fictional character do you think should have a film festival of their own that? We've covered so far on this list I? Love I. Love this idea that like. There's something so unique, so it was like. Shaw Festival it would be a Buncha. Tough eleven rough and tumble like Kinda Charlie. Bronson independent films are some of Mike. That you know a real, you know a balls to the wall. kind of go fuck yourself. Corporate America kind of VIBE. For You, know maybe if there was a I mean I'm trying to think of We already know that there's a fest based on. It's wonderful life right there like so we have to kind of go back I I like the idea of any character from one of the films on the list in creating a festival, and what that festival would have I like that a lot all right well, then that is your challenge. Pick character from the vilest and tell us your pitch for what they're film decibel would be. It's seven, four, seven, six, six six. Five eight, two, four, seven, four, seven, six, six, six, five, eight, two, four. Art Any next week for Butch, cassidy and the Sundance Kid..

"We'll I'm surprised. You don't know that about me yet, but there's no such thing as to medal for Nicholson. Oh, wow all right. Yeah, you know what I I should've known. I should've known. But I know that you love this movie, but my question to you. My stumper question is. What's a better movie? This drastic park. Here's the thing. This is the case I'll make I love this movie. It's so much fun it's. I work on all the levels. We just talked about, but I would argue. Jurassic Park! Has Many of the same elements, and it is better made, and also puts forward a new style of. Filmmaking, which is like the CGI these? Creatures, it as far as film is concerned. I think. Jessica Park like ups, the Ante of where the future of film. And if we're talking about popcorn films, you could say that you could make an argument well. Yeah, there's Star Wars Star. Wars is a great popcorn film in. You know summer blockbuster kind of an idea. Does drastic park up the ante. I don't know I. Mean Right now. Is There Sean Drastic Park? No I would say Jeff Goldblum whatever other Jeff Goldblum. Shots a hard conversation for me to have Malcolm a sean. Wow? I'm thinking about this because? Dern, I in my first gut reaction was like you have to have jaws. It's the one that established a summer blockbuster, but it did only hold the record for two years before star wars came in so. It could that line be checked the idea of getting rid of jaws? STARTLES ME A. Slightly more inclined to get rid of e T, but but but oh, Gosh! I mean a tough one right because dressed park like is another one of these movies that really holds up. It's it looks, and it doesn't age out like it doesn't feel like Oh. That's bad CGI or you know it. It has the same kind of mix of puppetry. Parishes practical in CGI it's and it has character moment. It's a little less adult than jaws, because the kids are in it and stuff like that, but as far as action in. It I don't know it like. It's an interesting debate I think. Yeah, it's a tough one. It's honestly not a not when I could even just like have a good answer that I would believe would be correct. In, no, because this for upcoming book one of her. Yeah. That's so tough it'd be part of me feels like. Jurassic Park is. SPLASHY maybe to splashy, but maybe that's just because I. don't like kids and movies ever no getting I'm getting maybe maybe I'm against the kids I mean we'll say. I was surprised. That was in the fifties of the AF. I ranking. Yeah. It's the president of dropped, but I think. John's is more of a cultural touchstone. Then it is, and this is what we talk about all the time on this show. It's like it's a cultural touchstone. That has its finger. In so many things that we love and that we know, but as far as a filmmaking perspective where script perspective, it's fine, it's but there are. There should be room for great films I think. This is a great film. Josie Great Film. Something that. I'm worried I'm worried to say this out loud, but honestly. Honestly! I think I mean it. Do you ever get a little bit board in the Second Act with all of the barrels? Like, we shot with another barrel. I told the pulled down to shut him with another barrel Oh. We pulled that barrel down like. You know I think this movie does suffer from an hour long second act. It's A to act movie. I think thankfully you drop that You dropped that night. In their the the scar seen that really I think refreshes you, but then that when they go back the next day like. I definitely feel if you're pressing me right now like I enjoyed it, but the last half hour the movie it's like. Okay, it's such a small boat. We already know the situation There's there's A. Knot wrong. You're definitely not wrong. It I don't mind it, but like by the tens of taking out the shark cage so late knit and okay like it's just. I hear you're saying I i. hear what you're saying it's. There's only so much they can do. You're watching barrels although I love on those three barrels go under the ship. It's such a cool visual. There's so somebody cool visuals, and by the way if you get yourself to Japan and not that anyone's doing any traveling right now. You gotta go on this jaws ride. It's one of the best if you ever get to go on. The cool jaws ride well, I'm GonNa Post, the Japanese version of jaws right? It's so good at incorporate so many elements of the movie. It's the best jobs ride but again it was taken away. Because People just don't care about jaws anymore. I think certain point like it's. It's Kinda going. I mean look. You could say the same thing for back to the future it's they took that right away to. It's interesting like these movies that I think are our kids or People younger than us. We'll be watching drastic park probably more than jaws. It's maybe we should let them decide. Maybe it's hard for us this I no wait. That's not fair I don't want to abdicate responsibility. Also you've made you've made. You've made an argument that I think is worth listening to. Well as you think at home right now, I will ask you my final question, amy. Is There Simpson's I, mean of course. There are so many Simpson's so any Simpson's. The one problem is that there is not that great of mini Simpson's later. There's a lot of Simpson's that are just tiny, little musical gags, tiny little quip clips. There's not like very definitive excellent example, so what I did is i. just pulled three incredibly short clips that are all calling back to jaws in one way. The first one is from an episode called Radio Bart where Bart pretends to be a little kid, stuck down a well and a man called to rescue him. WHO's very much quint? The second one is from homer goes to college where Do some pranks and Bart interrupts his prank meeting with some ideas in the last one is from the episode Oh brother where Bart Thou where Bart is trying to get a little brother out of an adoption agency, and he has an argument for why he deserves to have a new family member, which is Hook. hunk of chocolate. Boy. Oh clean him for free. I thought it. We wait by his male bugs, and when he comes outside, we roll them up in a carpet and throw them up bridge. So. It's a break you're looking for isn't.

"NATO. Buster. Possibly you know it did interviews, the whole generation of people to sharks, just in a really ridiculous situations, so they are pretty good at including lots of different issues, so maybe there's the kid out there. Hey, whatever sharp that just as our boss? Is Pretty. Cool maybe I should learn more about it so hopefully. I think this is so interesting to talk to you because they feel like these animals can't have a voice right and we can kind of paint them into whatever we want to do know it's it's whether or not it's like a movie like monkey shines Oh. That monkey is murderous or you know. We kind of really want to humanize every animal right and it's like what do you think that is that we want? Humanize all these creatures like the put it on our level. When when they are, you said they are animals. We are in their space. I think it's human nature to want to understand things and the best way to understand things is if we can put it in the context, that is the most familiar to us, though if the Shar makes a nice turnaround, you and you're like all. That's what I would do. If I saw Fred I would turn around and I really high, so it's. It's a lot of projection and I think it makes people feel really comfortable and I. Don't think there's a ton of harm in it. If you are kind of logical, the same kind of do both maybe bounce back and forth but I think it's just A. It's a way I. Understand these these animals that seem really. Possibly dangerous, but at the same time we're stereotyping these animals. We're saying all sharks are bad. We're we're. We need more shock defenders. We need to get out there. We need to change that narrative. As this last question, almost as revenge for Paul for teaching about the song, but have have you ever had baby shark stuck in your head. Oh. Yeah, well, there's that I tried really hard to keep it at bay but I got stuck during the presentation for Nice, great a great organization down here. They really wanted to know about baby sharks and I just couldn't do it without the song so unfortunately. Yeah, and I've even presented the live audience without song playing. That is, but that's a that is a positive representation of sharks ner culture. IT IS A. It's a family of sharks having a good time. They're not eating anybody. They're just hanging out as a family. That is very true I will take it I'll take that for the win. And it's such an look and we're teaching our children that so hopefully our children will go forward and carry the torch that sharks have families. They have a great time with their family, and it's not just all about getting revenge in the Bahamas on. Earth some sort of chief of police that that wronged him now, but nothing's. Can Dolphins get a horror movie though? I can't leave. There's gotTa. To be one out there I think worker. The original Orca was a scary dolphin movie, or maybe or with a whale killer whale, so yeah, sorry land I will not rest until we get Ajaz down movie where Dolphin Stock Families, and they roar when they come out the ocean. I'm one hundred percent on board with that. Whatever you need, I'll help. Thank you so much for spending time with us. been so great, the challenge you, yes. I so appreciate it. Let me, ask you a question though before we get into, are the biggest most important question about our yellow friends. Do. You think that drastic park is the true sequel to jaws. Because obviously Steven Spielberg did not touch any jaws, sequel, but. Thinking about this and I was like you know drastic park is kind of not a jaws to but Ajaz Redo. In many respects with kids. I was thinking about that to the way that you build up the dinosaurs before you really get to see them talking about them seeing their bones. Seeing skeletons before they become real to you. That reminded me a lot of here. You see illustrations of sharks, pictures of sharks, pictures of shark attacks building up to the big reveal, and also I mean definitely just this idea of economy, the WHO's pooling shots. How much is how much is a life worth in economy where you want to sell tickets to the beach? You want to sell ice cream. You WanNA sell snacks at the at the fantastical drastic park island, which I would still go to no matter what I saw. Yes. Sure? Yes, that believes name but. We, but isn't that, but isn't that kind of interesting that here? You have Spielberg the man who's blamed for? Making money once again, the emphasis of Hollywood who makes films about like Oh money ruins, everything money makes people do these self destructive decisions. Well I mean. I? I don't know because at the end of the day. It's always in service of art, right? He's making these I. Mean he's working for these companies, but then he becomes the owner of those companies. It's hard. It's a harder decision I don't think that Steven Spielberg is a well. I mean he is a business. Though, right? He's making these big. On a knowing me really stumped me. He's GonNa Stump Stump with a question. With a question well, then you have another question. Do you like? We were robbed at of Jaws Nineteen?.

"Bahamas. If you're on a vacation. There I know that to be true. Yes. Do, we move around a lot there. Really big animals that late smooth and cover a lot of grounds. There have been great way in the keys that we've seen with all the tracking. Get see where they go. I'm not aware of any that had been picked up in the Bahamas, but. Not Degree at least but. Yeah. They definitely move around a lot, but I think the behavior of. I, think they even mentioned rogue shark. Shark that the taste for human blood Let's just not. Substantiated by any kind of facts ways. Let's not a thing that a shot can taste blood and say I like that I want more so in generally animal behavior, and especially in sharks day are in. A three dimensional environments, so you're getting bombarded by smells and bare bones and noises in all your senses are going so. The very rare instance when they do get a bite of something like a mammal live which they don't often get sometimes, though be lucky and get a steal like a marine mammal. But in general, it would take repetitive zooming and very reliable like rewarded benefit for them to actually change sort of how they've been wired for four hundred fifty nine years, so a bite here and there wouldn't be enough to convince them to really go. After were st a benefit in something. That's just super weird and off their normal chart will then my question is. And, I feel like I know the answer to it, but I WANNA make sure. Do Sharks get a bad rap? I mean, are they? Are we just frightened by them? Because they looked prehistoric, they have these teeth like I mean. Do we want this villain in nature like sharks and bears? They're fucking scary like. Russia. You fold one a say. Yes, they've got a totally bad rap in. Not been helped by what we have to remember is a fictional. A fictional story with the police fictional story line by we also have to be careful. Remember that they're wild animals, dough interacting anything not can bite, but when you don't have an arms to hug something you use your t to check everything out. There's a good chance that we could possibly get hurt by the shark, so was dog I mean it's the same ideas a dog. It's like you have to teach them so much not to to bite mean. Yeah, they're I, mean I my sister-in-law's raising a puppy right now and it's like yeah. That was a shark I would be. I wouldn't have fingers. My cat seventy, the hospital for a love bite of the. If my cat was a shark, this'll be bad, but but can I say I mean? Dolphins are jerk, though right in my justified in thinking dolphins or real astles. Absolutely there's. Sorry to all the Dolphin lovers out there, but I think it's like the dark side dolphins. There's a documentary that showed the Bay Hill for fun. They have sex for fun They killed like a little baby spotted dolphin. I remember seeing that my whole world is like biologists budding biologist. Ten years old totally flips. I was like what they've been telling US wrong like. This early lake, not what we are, so I think that drew me and. Then I'll walk around about Boston. They're probably wrong. And you, it's interesting that you know that we kind of are judging shark on its looks to a certain degree because we have shark week, but I mean I. Think. People just want to see something scary and be scared by dolphins. It seems so much more not to get off on dolphins, but dolphins seem to have that premeditated nature like to have that ability to understand what it's doing or why it's doing something and that like a higher level of. Creepy are sharks. Not. Is it? Are they dumb or are they like very base? I would say yeah. I think it's a better way saying in so like hammer heads with that big weird looking head actually have pretty big. Brains Body Mass Ratios, which is a little of a way that we can sort of measure you know the the. Intelligence they can learn different tasks. And they can learn behaviors, so that's kind of like a little side, so yes, they are a little bit basic they they evolved way before mammals dead, so their their brains just wired a little bit more simplistically, maybe but they under they have complex behaviors. They undertake massive migrations. They do these kind of conflicts saying bat. Maybe are outside of the way we measure tell. that we have that little box for so the more we the research where we learn where we're finding out that they're not. Super Simplistic. They're just not or the way the dolphins are mammal rates are so. It's like we need just empathy for the shark to understand. They're thinking in a different way. I think that's again kind of love. You relationship with Shark Week because if we could show I, mean I got terabytes of footage of shark swimming calmly. They never open their mouth. They're never aggressive. And that how an animal access how it's actually ask. You can actually see that more than the open mouth, rare instances of that, but it's what you always de on shark right if we could switch those out and show her how they actually are. I think people would be more on. To. There's overfishing and they're facing out of trouble. So have you ever had a a lovely or meaningful moment with shark? I've mean I think I have a scientist. Try to stay objective. But. There's there was a time with There's a open ocean shark hall. The Silky Shark and they're just beautiful. Being named that is their skin looks super, soapy underwater. the big female, and she I hurt my knee and I wasn't swimming really really strong, but she cuts swimming around me. Never making it like to close. I could see. She moved her. I. Around Watch the fell I wouldn't say. No crazy connection, but there just a time. where like the oceans been here for so long? Animals been here for so long. unclearly, just a little visitor in her world, and she's letting me be here, so that was really awesome. You know I think that you know. We also hear about these prehistoric sharks, and not to kind of. Israelis bigger conversation, what is like like this idea that the mega don and and things like that? Can you talk about these these bigger sharpton? We see it in Jurassic world. We see it and you know these like like you know how you're. Afraid of. Sharks will be afraid of this one because it's. Bigger. Ya No I mean listen don. several several several times larger than your average rate way so I think what they did. Show a picture of a little VW bug that actually fit through the jaws of Mega Don. So we're talking pretty pretty big. I would love obviously to see one I think they just don't. There's not a lot of Friday available, but back in the day win. Mammals are coming like they kind of evolved out of the water. And then they came back into the water There was just this crazy time period where life is really abundant in really diverse and something. That big had plenty to eat. So it would have been pretty impressive this. Do. You think you're going to ever meet any shock. Experts who are inspired.

"We have seen that like the embracing of. A big budget blockbusters summer film is always a tricky proposition. Because are you supporting it at the risk of shutting down other movies that are more important you know like the way that she reacted to Indiana Jones. And the raiders of the lost Ark or just raiders of the lost Ark, as it was originally called. Is So dismissive and I think there is a world where we should allow all types of film I mean we should like the. There doesn't have to be one type, and maybe the film that breaks through because right now. I think it's considered a classic like there isn't lumpy dialogue. I don't think there's dialogue. I think it's really well directed. It doesn't feel like a first attempt. Attempt I know. We talked about the music. The music bad. It just feels like. Oh, they were trying different things. It feels like old Spielberg and or feels like Spielberg that we know and maybe Spielberg doing some days a little bit different 'cause. This movie is very different than what Spielberg normally does. Even working with adults to a certain extent is different. It's true I mean I imagine it's nineteen seventy-five. You've seen dual. Maybe maybe you seem to. Maybe you've seen the sugarland express, but you're not yet flagging the name Steven Spielberg as anything special. Absolutely happens. I mean I wonder what that tipping point is really after this point on every movie he does is Steven Spielberg movie. You're a success and you set up expectations so people review you a little more seriously. They might also hold a dire standard. I have to say that watching this movie. It was shocking not to see his name on the front of it. You know you arcing. Richard, Zanuck and Oh Wow right. This is Neil before this person has power and you look at somebody like Jordan Peele. He's name is much more on the front of get out then. Spielberg's is on the front of Jaws and you know. I think that's probably just a blouse model of having ownership over what you get to make, but obviously that reviewer. Has Been The minority. Right, amy. He had a lot of company. You had a lot of company a one of the people who gave it. A negative view is also molly Haskell. She didn't like the film at all, but she did. Wind up writing a really interesting book about Spielberg later trying to understand his career, even though she was never person she felt like was aligned with him Joe Veliky made movies that were for boys or grown up. Men Who are afraid of women. But you know my haskell herself is Jewish and so she was trying to write about Steven Spielberg through the Lens of looking at his faith in his religion, and how that might have impacted how he sees films, and also really questioning feminism in each one of them. It's really interesting if people are curious out of for a very different Lens of a reluctant Spielberg appreciator, you know. She panned this movie in Nineteen Seventy Five. She wrote this book. Thirty years later thirty years later, yeah. Sort of being able to look back at his body of work more, but it is true a little bit like people have said on the set that none of the writers liked hanging out with. Lorraine Gary. They just didn't think she's very nice or maybe they didn't like that. She was married to one of the producers so day they would cut more and more out of the script. Do Sense. There's a little bit of. A little bit of sexism happening in this movie, a lot of the deleted scenes. have her in them and. Watching that and thinking about that character, because I like the relationship that brody has with his wife, and then there's some really sweet scenes that again ground, the character and our playful and fun and the scene that really spoke to me as a parent. is is a scene where you know Rhody freaks out that his kids on the boat on the off. The dock is again and get and get in. And you see his wife. Kind of take in everything that's going on, and then she's getting. Get it because it. That's such a well realized parent moment like you know, it's like they seem to be team and I was thinking like Oh. She must be bummed that she doesn't really have that much to do, but I feel like again. The magic the alchemy this movie. She is very effective an offer scenes. I mean there isn't much for her to do in this movie like just from a character point of view. It's like you don't need his wife to really do much of anything I mean it's not. It's not about his family. I mean in a general sense. It is because the shark attack anybody but. You know I think that they do her better than she would get done in another fell. I. Mean She at least looks like? A! Lovely Nice wife up your I. At least she's it. She's not made up to death or anything. She just looks like a cool mom. I want to hang out with that mom. I'd WanNa Drink Cape. COD's. Is that what people would drank in the? Arrow, but but I, but she's. Let's go. Let's get drunk and mess around McGinnis She's there is a playfulness and their relationship that I often look to A. I've already mentioned this, but the seven connection to it like this the same way I felt about Gwyneth paltrow and Brad Pitt in that film like Just like there's A. A commodity to these characters I I mean I know what they're. Full story is but believed that they support each other, and they love each other, and they're there for each other. But I, don't know I mean again. It's I'm not writing a character. I'm not writing a thesis on that character. It's like it's not a a wonderful character, but I feel like. She edits together well. Maybe that's. I don't know. Okay. We've been talking a lot about sharks in the abstract about Bruce Rubber. Friend I think it's time we actually talked to a person who understands who can stick up for sharks. Who knows that sharks aren't just people who chased family all around the Bahamas. So let's get on the phone. These shark expert name is ahead and she founded American. Shark Conservancy, welcome. How is the movie jaws seen by the Shark community? So actually hug the pleasure of working with when Benchley who was. Peter Benchley is widow in a shark conservation organization, I and she actually starting to a project to show. It got a really bad rap. I think because a lot of people demonize sharks. After this, there was actually a really big push for people to. Go out and fish hill any sharks nickname across and then there's this other sort of split side like I watched it terrified, but instead of it making me and other future biologists like scared of the shark, wanting to kill them. We wanted to learn fascinating wants to learn more about it, so there's the two cans like some people blame it for the downfall of last shark populations here United States. But. There's also the other side where it actually fired a lot of people to learn more And then they became pretty loud voices for the sharks I mean I'm just assuming. Jaws completely one thousand percent by biologically accurate right. Yeah hundred. Ten by the by the book a textbook. No. There's there's some. Glaring inaccuracies comes to the biology ecology behavior of the sharp for sure. What are the main things which I worked in the cage diving industry in South Africa for a few years. The people be very confused. They would always think they were seeing to sharks but. You're seeing a second dorsal fin which are Bruce. Movie Jaws Shark did, not have. So, anatomically. Confusing when you only saw this for one door for cutting through the water when it comes to just the general behavior of I. Don't know if it needs to be sad, but they. There's evidence to suggest they target. Families. Or individuals family. Jaws for the revenge proves that that shark will travel. He will get to the.

"A film makes a lot of money, people resented everybody they do. Everybody loves a winner by the way one of those buddies that he's got. It was like Oh Blah arrived. We have seen pop up in a few of our films. Did you recognize JOE SPINAL TAP? Joe's Mel. He is a guy that kind of he's the one of Beto narrow-shouldered. Stranger looks like in a costume one.

If you'RE GONNA break my charge, you could take it on the right nine understand. Sorry? I love being reminded the everybody just knows each other, and it sounds like such an obvious thing, but the idea that Steven Spielberg. When he was starting at his career. You know wasn't just only hung out with like the seventies Weirdos where he was the slight outcast, they thought of him. I think is kind of the robotic nerd who wasn't cool like the rest of them. You know millions of being like. Oh! Isn't that a little bit like. How Lucas was perceived to. It would make sense that they would team up. They I mean. They just consider them like these. T.

Was it of is gone with the wind eight. He was a guy who wasn't trying to make his vision at the very beginning you. He didn't have the clout to make his vision, so he wasn't like holding out and making these art films he was directing TV in. That is how we met Joan Crawford because Oh we have to talk about night gallery his very first thing that he directed for universal. Nearly Okay Kid. You can work with us. You know this is no. L., even describe it and it. Rod Sterling wrote the peace, and she was supposed to play a blind lady in New York City, the. was she's blind and she gets her sight back during the New York blackout and just when you can see for twelve hours. It's the blackout sunrises. She has four minutes of site and she goes blind again jumped out the window. Okay, the power of television I don't know. And I remember going over to Joan's house, and she just assume that universal hired a a substantial professional veteran director director someone of her stature shoot they. She assumed they were going to match someone like like a I don't know George, Cukor, for instance I think she expected someone like humour to take over the reins and director. I remember. She had no idea that I was twenty one years old at the time. Nobody told her that I was twenty one big mistake. And I walked into this room and there's Joan with. Bandages around her eyes. Flailing her arms stumbling through the room, knocking things over. Saying Stephen that you say you're GONNA love. This I've learned how to I've learned how to. Get around my apartment without seeing I'm practicing. I'm getting into character from Menlo and Lance Rally over the telephone came up with okay, hit the ground with terrible ring, and she was kicking cords and knocking over trash buckets, and it was it was. It was brutally funny I. I just I didn't know what to do. Laugh or or just turned radical at the film school. and. She finally walked over to me and she. Undid her. Her wrappings and she looked at me and she almost screamed, and she said my God. We can't go out for dinner. People will think you're my son. I love that image of Classic Classic Hollywood Joan Crawford is making movies in this island era. You'll be course. Go being a dancer. Then being an epic person who should be on this list man of a no Joan Crawford list makes me, said, which by the way I think I heard that bette. Davis was actually supposed to be in this thing, but walked off when she heard the director was going to be so young do WanNa hear clip of Joan Crawford in the very first thing that Steven Spielberg directed yes. My abiding concern doctor and my singular preoccupation is myself. Lebanon has a twelve fewer more. It makes no difference. I want to see something. Trees concrete buildings grass. I. Mean there you? Look you know works. That kind of stuff is by like the the cool dudes didn't know Spielberg deserve to hang. Yeah, they thought he was just trying to suck up to the older people, but this is also a battle. That's happening. You know when you hear like Copa Talking about Lucas going like Oh Lucas chew involved than star. Wars like he's to SAS with it like there is a disdain at the popcorn film from the people like Scorsese and Coppola, in that moment like A. Anything the actors they work with are different. You know it's. You're never seeing. Al Pacino or you know or Deniro in a Spielberg film this time. I think that that line. We're talking about it a lot much to your chagrin like the idea of the marvel movie. It's like this. Is a right of passage, or can you stay around it and and never go there? You know It's a it's a battle that is always fighting, but if you can make a great. Amazing popcorn film that has depth and heart. You can actually do something. Right now you can actually go off and make other things you know, but are often times. If you make something really great independent, pull you into making a you know a big budget thing at the lines of blurred a little bit more, but I think back then it was no. We make important films where you make. You know popcorn films. Yeah and I think that that that dynamic is why a lot of critics weren't sure what to make us when it came either is popcorn film? Is this a high class film and they weren't really sure I think. A lot of critics came in when they first saw jaws with that hesitant like. Oh, here we go! A shark attack movies, some sort of based on a giant blockbuster thing that they were not expecting to see handled with craft especially if they'd even read Benchley. Book I don't know if they expecting high-quality literature on screen or anything in, so there was hesitance to like this movie. People recognized it as something. Bigger Goria more mass possibly than the average be picture. But yet there was a real reluctance to see it as art. Some people loved it. Some people really did went. Go nuts, but there is a substantial amount of critics who you could tell had like one foot on shore one foot in the water like I'll read one from the Los Angeles. Times this is Charles Champlin. He said. Well I have no doubt that jaws will make a bloody fortune for universal in producers, Richard Zanuck and David Brown. It is a great and exploitation of work which depends on excess for its impact ashore. It is a bore awkwardly staged and luckily written. He calls the mayor a caricature. He says that Quinn's actions quote don't even reveal the logic of madness. And then he says for Steven Spielberg. He says Young Steven, Spielberg, who was the director shows as he has before an uncommon flair for handling big big action, he and the script are much less successful in the man to man confrontations than in the Manda Shark meetings. Intimacy is not yet his strength. The ending is pope story hokum calculated I expected, affirm that it has all been in gory good fun. The nightmare was only a dream still I would not be surprising if don't go near the turned out to be the motto along. Ocean beaches this summer. Said Yeah. There's definitely condescension there towards wanting to see this movie for be fun as Hell and great well. I think you know when we've talked about pauline killing.

"It then what? Yeah there there was not the best blood I think after awhile for him because he wanted to take credit for all aspects of this movie, and he was annoyed that shoe try to take credit which makes me just say by the way if you'll have not been listening to create a whole podcast series on polly Platt like it's going to related this idea of women in the seventies getting they're. Getting their achievements pooh-poohed by the guy in charge? He wants to take all the credit but I. DO WANNA. Give Steven Spielberg credit because. He claimed that he wanted more of a credit for writing the film, and they didn't get enough of the credit for helping the film, but he did he to me. He at least does deserve credit for reading Peter Benchley Book in saying I don't like these characters. The the first time you read benches book is like all the people in this book are jerks, and I want to care about them I. Want to love them, and even if you didn't write the, they'll dialogue itself. I think he gave the commencement. Know in the rights to Benchley to to Carl Gottlieb. Make us like these people because I don't I mean I've read the original ones and. There's a lot that he cut out what she needed to cut out. You know the mayor is crafted by the Mafia. There's the I heard that the reason why the mayor want to close the beaches, because the Mafia owned real estate on amity to Kabul gated. There's a whole thing in there about About Richard Dreyfuss about hooper, having an affair with Mrs Brody with his wife, which just to make you uncomfortable I pulled a paragraph of the sexy. Oh Gosh okay. Okay. There's not any dirty words. Do you have any kids are in their him? So, this is this. Is Ellen Brody describing what? It's like to have sex with Richard DREYFUSS? The is seemed to bulge until just before release, Ellen had feared, they might actually pop out of their sockets. Hooper's teeth were clenched, and he ground them the way people do during sleep from his voice, there came a gurgling wine. WHO's tone road is rose higher and higher with each frenzied thrust. God? I don't know why appreciate that. was describing him lake. She's having sex with a shark. I may look I'm sure that that was probably on the level. You know the studio even said if we read Peter Benchley is book twice or actually really read it. We would never have green with this movie I. Mean You know this is the movie that shouldn't have been made, and and really barely is, and it's amazing that. It actually makes me look to people like Scorsese that have these relationships with their editors I think Tarantino does as well like knows the importance that a great editor brings the process like you're not a monolith, you. You can have this amazing help and. I think. They often give you know Scorsese Quentin to speak so highly of what their editors bring to the process. And I think there was because of this dynamic between Spielberg and eventually. There was this bad blood on the set. You Know Spielberg would tell the press he's like. If we don't make this movie better than the book, we're in real trouble and Benchley was onset hearing him say things like that eventually got revenge the LA. Times that Spielberg was not that good of a director like heat. He said Spielberg needs to work on character. He's a twenty six year old who grew up with movies, but he has no knowledge of reality, but the movies he is be movie literate when he must make decisions about the small ways people behave, he reaches for movie cliches of the forties and fifties, and then this is the most damning, says one day Spielberg will be known as the greatest second unit director in America. Wow, what a fucking slam, and by the way what we're talking about on this podcast is how great he is a character moments, and maybe that is because he found the perfect alchemy of actors who brought so much to it. We talked about Robert. Shaw being amazing in this film, but you know that little limerick that he does in the film like he used that in another movie that he did with James Earl Jones like a swashbuckler movie You're going to need a bigger boat. That was an improvised line. Know, there's a lot of little tweaks I think so. Many people brought so much to these characters, and the casting of them really elevated it. You know so. He may have gotten lucky by casting these local townspeople. To add this color. The film wouldn't of had. You know really because of the again. If everything worked perfectly, you know he might just have been a different movie that didn't become the film that essentially creates a style of movie and launches his career into this. Strategy where he's like the king of it and I think what he's so good at doing in the movies we talked about this not is finding this human emotion, but this nineteen seventies version of him. This may have been his his ultimate student learning so much here, being in this town being against up against the wall. No believing in him, he may have learned more here than any other place you know. Sometimes the hardest situation grows you quicker than you know a lifetime of like real interactions. And yet he definitely wasn't feeling that way at the time I. Mean The wind the movie wrapped. He was convinced he'd made something awful like He. Apparently, he didn't even want to be there for the very last shot of the movie because Bilberg had heard that the crew members are gonNA throw him in the ocean. When it was done, he hated the ocean. He didn't WANNA. Get thrown in the water so what he did I is. He showed up at day onset, wearing suede. He thought if I'm wearing, suede. They're not gonNA throw me in the. The water because they know it's GonNa. Fuck up my Suede, and then we realize the crews still did want to throw him in the water. When they finish the last shot, he set it up in the camera, and then immediately ran off the boat immediately ran and took a trade in, so they were still filming Nick Lee the last shot when he was out, he was gone. He split because he was so freaked out that the created and they're gonNA throw them in the water, isn't he? Got To a motel anyhow? Full on panic attack meltdown. Lost it like he had to take valium when he went to the first test greetings, he was convinced he had made something bad. Well by the way that attitude changes when the Academy Award nominations come, I don't know if you've ever seen this clip. It's a three minute long clip. It's on Youtube. You can watch it I. WANNA play. A moment of this is Steven. Spielberg hires a documentary crew to tape him reacting to the nominations. Of the Academy Awards, he He has two friends that are dressed up in like a Tuxedo. Shirts and he is sitting there so sure that jaws is going to sweep the nominations I'll just play clipper this. Allies Either spokes. Being Price. Godfather had this to say. The Godfather was nominated for the best picture and one, but the director Bob Foresee a cabaret one. That's bullshit. You cannot have the best picture unless directors nominated. Who made the picture somebody's mother director? This man made jaws. Are you kidding kidding around in this duck day in Hollywood absolute? Power. Time was made. They haven't recognized that the director who made it the shock? Logic, who made the best nick? Alright. United saying I'm suffering enough. Suffering. Capsule my day right. We're getting canceled my week. That's just weekend palm springs. Right took. Only four what? Missed ending mid score in town mets. Replay! and. Special Effects This is called commercial backlash. If anybody knows the word, commercial blacklash, but when? When.

"But he hadn't acted in a great film in, awhile because he was getting this reputation for being prima, Donna and he was addicted to. I think painkillers or amphetamines. At the time. He was a bit of a mess, but even so he's like I. Don't WanNa do this socks and everybody was. Around all day, I, they're making fun of Steven Spielberg relentlessly a because, he was a tiny kid, and he was younger than everybody else. Who is like being one of the head chief of all the departments especially like transportation department was on his case all the time. But be he apparently had on this pair of bell-bottoms that was like infamous Stevensville. Work had these bell-bottoms and they were. At the time, apparently, two hundred and fifty dollars in it, which was a ton for nineteen, seventy five, and they were covered zippers, and everybody was just like this fucking guy, these fucking and they just hated him because of his aunts. I, mean by the way it just seems like. Here's a cocky kid. Probably shouldn't have gotten this job, right? He his career was in a weird spot. He directed some interesting. TV things, this is his chance right but. Maybe it's one of those situations to where by being out, and then Tuck it studio wasn't able to breathe down his neck, so he was able to actually. Really, execute his vision without anybody there because I think that's kind of the rule of thumb, always like if you can go far away on location. The studio will not go visit. You like, so you can. Actually you have the freedom to make your film. David Lean, try that. Yeah. Yeah, Right Lane Francis Ford, Coppola. They've all been trying that I. Think is editor here. VERNA fields was really trying to protect. Spielberg she just like I. Don't have anything to show. You don't WanNa. Show anything And it seems like again. This is a movie that was going to be much heavier on the shark stuff you know you talked about the shock earlier like he wanted to train a shark, but when they had all these issues with the shark. You know the mechanics not working. They couldn't get the shots they wanted. They created more of the the hitchcock version of the shark. Like you don't really see it like it it there. There are similarities this movie and I even think psycho certain extent to. It's like it's the specter that's looming underneath you. But, you don't really see the face of new the mother in psycho until the very end, and that's what they do here like, but I think if everything worked. You would've seen this shark all over the place you know, but but didn't in those kind of forced issues created a better movie and I think then you have. Spielberg is actually a really good director. Who may have been a little bit ambitious? Because able to combine like so he took the the things that were constricting the production, and made them into things where he could actually show off being a great director, which is through character, and through creating this tension of not seeing things and mixing in footage and you know. Bring up even when they brought up that shark. Tiger Shark like they've fed the fire that up from Mike Florida like the able to show sharks in a different way and I feel like you got the fear of the sharp without actually seeing it so that last couple of minutes when you're really seeing it. Oh boy, it really packs a punch. Yeah I felt bad because I just assumed that tiger shock, they draw. They dragged up was. A mold is just like a dummy has no I know, and then to find out. It was really blew my mind because it looks really fake to me. Essentially. Apparently sharks wrought really fast because they're just made of cartilage, so they don't. They don't even preserve as long as other edibles, but yeah that poor shock I. Just I was really. My is always chug like Oh. What a bad shark would adum fake shark etiquette believe that a real shark died just me to roll my eyes and think it looked awful. You wanted that shocked me. You know there's something so sad about that shark, and that's kind of what I love about it too is. It! It This is for the film, but. It's so big, but it looks dopey. And I think it helps the final shark to because it's a different color in it. I don't know I think it. All leads up to this final. REVEAL OF OF SEEING HOW SCARY! Bruce is like It just does a great job of maybe lowering the expectation of it because we all now know what. Bruce looks like there's rides. There's one great ride, or it used to be a great ride in Universal Studios Florida now is only in Japan. Great Jaws Right, and then there's the cheesy universe where the sharpest pops out of the water every now and then it looks I love. I love it happens. Days of my life was I had to do one of those pop up like it's the week of the Oscars kind of. This to Oscars ago, and it was this British company, and they WANNA shoot right behind that shark at the universal lot so I got the hang out there for like an hour and a half and just watch trains trains go by and the shark. Jump out and scare people. Happiest I've ever been because that is one of my favorite spots on the planet, being by the jaws ride. Oh, I. It's such a I mean but I guess what I'm saying is worse so. Used to seeing the Josh Shark. It's hard to say like what was it like in Nineteen, seventy five or you know to to see this and. It's. Because now it's part of our culture, and we're used to seeing movies of the Jason Stay in CGI Shark. This is so pure about the even the the the the plastic jaws are the remote control jaws. It's still effective because it's real. It's practical. It's not CG and they mix you know other. Clips I don't know I think it. Really they do a great job of. Of Making the shark still scary as as someone watching movies now, and I've seen other movies like it's still a scary shark. It's not as comical as you're led to believe it is. No I agree I. The first jobs I ever saw. Don't judge me for this is jazz for? The first one. I ever saw by the way you say that I can say that I. Ever saw was jaws. Three D just three. Actually really I saw jaws in three D a couple of years ago, and it made me really happy the three three days. Yeah I grew up in a town with a seaworld. So watching people on water skis get eaten is very very reminiscent, my youth but I just for to me was more terrifying than anything I've ever seen in my life. I remember specifically being at my grandparents house, and being unable to get out of bed on the second floor of a house in Michigan, because just in case, there was a shark on the carpet. Oh my gosh. I loved it so much I mean I'm a huge Jonah in terms of being a fan of the movies. The books I'll even stick up a little bit for to. If I had to rank them I'd probably rank them one for three to. Well, as you know, after watching or really watch jaws to. I don't even really remember what happens in it. So just to not good at all I. Just remember there's like a regatta and chase, and there's like his sons on a boat for a long time. It's it's not as fun. I will say you know what this movie made me. Feel though is also..

"Indianapolis. You feel that they finally do respect. Each other like the team is assembled for this final battle. DREYFUSS has has proven that he can tie not. Yeah, but you think. You know in Shaw's mind by the way Shawn had the best character introduction that was not used for this movie. Do you know about this at all? No okay fingernails better than that awful fingernail. That is pretty. That is pretty amazing. The scene is more reminiscent of Cape Fear which is Moby Dick is playing in a local movie. Theater and Shah is in the theater, and he starts maniacally laughing at how they capture. Moby Dick so much, so that he. He basically walks the room. Everyone in the theatre leaves because. Just making fun of Moby Dick as being an unrealistic film and I love that moment of. This guy I mean. It's a little over the top sure, but what Kuwait introduces character, the only reason why they didn't do it was because Gregory Peck hated his performance and Moby Dick so much that he loved the scene, but just felt like I don't want anyone to see my bad acting in that movie again, so I'm not going to let you have the rights to Moby Dick but I just I. But thing of Shah great show seen. There's all these deleted scenes that kind of go to exactly what you and I are talking about. It's a lot more homelife and the person who runs the The boatyard you get to see a little bit more life of Amity very small scenes, but there's a great scene were is going to get fishing wire from a music store and there's a little kid playing. Like a flute and he's playing. The Star spangled banner and Right over his shoulder, and this split died after shot. We're seeing both. In focus and he's just going down and. Just hammering. This kid is playing. Oh, it's such a great scene like he such a fantastic character. I think I really. Grew to love Shaw more than ever in this watch. Well. Did you know he's inspired by a real guy that you see in the film? New. Okay, so you know how there's like those two fishermen, right? There on the dock. And then there's the other fishermen who is out on the boat and you see his severed head. You're the water. Yeah, that guy. The severed head guy, the actor who played the guy who gets his head cut off. He is based on a local. They castle. Lot of locals for this movie. You know extras. The woman whose son is killed she was a local choose local actor, acting teacher, but that guy he is played by a local name Craig Kingsbury. He was like the character of Martha's Vineyard. He was a total crazy seafaring man. He's literally the only person ever arrested for drunk driving a team of oxen in Martha's Vineyard. He will get drunk ride around with a team of oxen. Oxen he never he never shoes anywhere. And he was this guy who was. He had been a rich kid from New Jersey. His myth is, but when he was in prep school, he went to Philadelphia with a with a packet of trick dice. You know they got from magic store. He played crafts with a bunch of Philadelphia locals and took everybody's money in took the money he made from this crooked craps game, and just immediately quick prep school and went to see. That is that cleaned his based on, so they would just have this guy around. They would listen to the way that he talked. They would take a lot of his phrases, and they turned his quotes into the Quin character, because that's just who he was and he was always like. Happy to talk about it later. He's one of those. Bragging people he gave an interview wants to the Boston Globe where he was like I. Don't know how the hell the Shark Spit my head back in the boat after he bit it off, but he was. Character even like he even took a stationary when the film came out, and he put his severed head on the stationary. So that is real quint is real. Hey everybody we to take a quick commercial break, and just a reminder that if you are tired of US talking about a great movie that is jaws, you can always go over to. How did this get made and listen to US talk about a terrible movie, which is jaws, four, or as amy calls it her second favourite jaws film over to the. How did this get made podcast and listen to jazz four with guest? Jake Fullness Hi I'm Paul. F Tompkins, and I'm Nicole Parker and we have a podcast. It's out right now. Called the neighborhood listen. That's right on the neighborhood. Listen, we take real posts from neighborhood networking websites and use them for hilarious character Improv and we have very special guests like Karl Tart Tawny. newsome Mary Holland Nicole lawyer Bobby, Moynihan Lauren lab gifts and many many more new episodes, every Tuesday listen on Apple podcast, stitcher, or wherever you listen to your pods. This wasn't ad about it? There's so many great stories about the making of this movie, and I feel like we do a whole podcast about it. And as a matter of fact, wondering did an amazing podcast series about the making jaws, and if you like jaws, it's a must-listen to. It's a bunch of just you know how the shark doesn't work and. All this other stuff this movie. Feels like they lived on this island, and it was very much caddyshack like everyone was there. They were partying. Allot. This movie shouldn't have been this film or as good as his film is. You know with all the issues that they had, but they really pulled it out and I think I or I guess I wonder if being in this community and being able to truly interact with these people made this film better than if it was shot on the back lot of Hollywood studio and I think. You can't argue that yeah, absolutely. There's a flavor to this movie across the board. That doesn't feel like a Hollywood movie. Every. One of those things is just. Spielberg, putting his foot down and saying we are not going to make this movie in a tank I. Want Real Ocean waves. I want that coldness Stewart. I wonder if he regretted that. This is a film that I think of the shoe. The shooting time is supposed to be like fifty five days, and they wound up having to be there for one hundred fifty nine days, and it went three hundred percent over budget because he was getting so aspirational about one eight to be with a mechanical shark. Once you learn that you could actually train a shark. He really thought you could train a shark to do. These things and Spielberg was like. Oh, no, you can't. I didn't realize and. Having the Mechanical Shark that worked great in the regular tank, but not in seawater they they were trying to do so many things with so many variables against it. It's I. Mean also just shooting on Nantucket. It's a rainy it's it's not going to whether the. There's no sets really in this movie. No, and from what I've read. It seems like the atmosphere was Kinda. Dour? The crew reassigned the movie flaws at one point. In the cast thought the script was awful. They thought it was terrible like Dreyfuss thought his character was just exposition. He didn't WanNa do the movie. He turned it down three times, and he was in a position as his grave, where he could just turn down things that easily done.

"Kind of says it's in one line in the film. and. Then you see and this is again. This movie doesn't late all out, but then he comes to this island. We can make a difference and at a point where he can really make a difference, he's not allowed to do so i. think that that from a character perspective is so fascinating to this person who only wants to help. He's going to that island to chill out. He's not going to that island because he's burnt out. He's going to that island because he feels like he can actually be responsible and solve something. He takes pride in his job. You know and. Like after French connection, he was like okay. Enough where this shit I'm going to go over here. I love the casting of too because you buy him as a cop in a bigger city like you you, you see that and he doesn't saunter with that. They lose all that attitude. I think by making him nuts incredibly stereotypical. He doesn't feel like a big city cop. He just feels like. He doesn't feel inorganic to the island. Yes, they try to say that. He doesn't speak like everybody else, but he. Is a rational thoughtful you know doesn't kind pull rank on anybody at certain points. He makes decisions that he thinks are best and right in a certain point when there's no other choice to make he decides is GonNa. Go out there and kill, but I. Don't know I like that. They don't make him. Like, many of these action movies like fish out of water is not a fish out of water. He's I mean weird metaphors, but he's he's just trying to do. What's right? I don't know you don't get that you don't get. That's not. How do things on this island? That's not a runner of it. It's more like trying to deal with how the island works, but he's not being treated like an outsider truly. It's an argument for casting us with a person. Roy Scheider not casting of like rock. I'm here to save this town. Rice Stark Yoga's YEP rock. Into a town and you're like. Yes, you are a believable human I absolutely by you as a person who lives in this town. Schwarzenegger Schwarzenegger from the eighties like Oh. Here's this Austrian man who's I'm a border guard. I've always been aborted a guy. It's like Oh okay well, hold on, let us go back and figure out what's what's happening here. On the menu who eats nineteen chicken breast today, but yes, I work in an office. I mean at least call it out, but yet there is something. So interesting about these characters and You know how they how they really. Uncover what Quintas about like Quintas, a character that I've seen in so many films, not actually but characters like clint. Did they never do the Baxter or they do a rough version of the backstory and I? Think that's such a realized performance. I love that performance so much me. Robert Shaw movie is. Next level. It's so other. They wanted it to be our guy. Our Guy who comes up all the time on this show lately. Sterling Hayden. Oh Wow. Serving eight was one of the first place I mean the the original gassing of this was all over the place. They really wanted a Charlton Heston to be in the film studio. Did there like we need a big movie star? I think they wanted Heston for the brody role and Oh. Wow, yeah, it's still was like no, isn't. Spielberg does not really have that much clout to say no really to Heston, but apparently part of the story. Story is win. Spill was a kid. He would warm as van to the universal set. Do unpaid work do anything he could when he was like nineteen, twenty, twenty, one to be there, and he was a bit pushy, so he would go up to cary grant, or would go to Clint Eastwood and say. Can we have lunch together at the commissary in Charlton Heston, said, no, and he never really forgave him. He was like okay fine. You. Movie then trump Heston. This is seventy six so. You know there's a little bit of an energy like you don't want someone who exudes. A cockiness I think that's the thing that makes movie you know. I think part of the fun of that. Second Act is that you have to and for lack of a better term. NERDS like you know they're not like. They're not super tough guys with this incredibly tough guy on the ship it. It adds for drama ads for comedy. It makes the movie I mean they each have a set of tools that they can use, but it makes it way more interesting than just like the expandable. Yeah exactly Richard Dreyfuss is nervous eagerness to please I. Think is so funny throughout this whole movie like when he shows up at the brody's house with two bottles of wine of red and awake because he's what they like, and that's the kind of indecision interpersonal detail that I really like you know I think tougher. LABRAL whiskey. Let's sit down and talk great. But even just like I'm not entirely sure what's right here that hesitant. In the way he has hesitant, draws the story of Annapolis out of quint. The that suddenly drive is on the boat, trying to act like a tough guy showing off scars being like I'm one of the men, but he has got that nervous giggle where you know, he's just not. He's just he's excited. His almost laugh snorting. There is now and then. In an almost a test of the tougher man is that when Quinn gets to his Indianapolis to, he doesn't want to talk about it like he's not interested in bragging about it in its clumsy efforts of Dreyfuss and brody that make him talk about it like the idea that a real man in this movie. Knows, that there are some stories he wants to keep to himself but any. I mean the story that we never hear. Is Brody story because in that same scene? Brody off to the side lists shirt. You see a scar and it's never addressed why they don't see him do it. Yeah, he? It's around one twenty, eight twenty five. If you want to see it. Can't really play clip because it's just a silent cut-away. He pulls up his shirt and kind of plan his pants and there's a scar across them, and that may be part of this. Issue that he has. We don't know. He's so strong that we never hear his story. You think it's an appendix. I'M GONNA go with appendix. There's one time you beheading fame for a week. That's tonsils, amy. That's tonsils not appendix. But you know it's interesting that all these men have stories and going back to Dreyfuss for a second. I love how they are pretty clean with his character like he's incredibly smart. When he dresses down the corner, you watch him. A be uncomfortable with seeing dead body which I love, and it adds a level of realism to this entire film, the highest rate of the victim. Partial remains. The torso has been severed in mid thorax. There are no major organs remaining the I have less than one. Right, arm has been severed above the elbow with massive tissue loss. In the upper musculature. Thank you very much. Partially denuded bone remaining as was no boat accident. Did you notify the Coast Guard about this? No. It was only local jurisdiction. Yeah I love that scene and then I love how they kind of just explain away his character one point. He's basically like yeah. I'm really rich. And It It lets you know as an audience member. Okay. I got it, but it doesn't devalue him and you know and to a certain extent. Shaw is so unimpressed by him, but when it comes to. You know points in the thumb? They have to rely on each other. They do bond that story that we talk about. It. I think connects them all because even before the story of the.

"Is and it it almost. I was trying to think of the emotions. That scene made me feel because you would think we killed the shark. We've seen a baby and the death of the shark because of that music to me becomes. Mournful like you see him disappear in this red cloud of blood. It looks magical it and also it makes me sad for the shark I'm maybe it's just me. I'm a little biased. Because I love sharks to pieces I think sharks are amazing, but when you watch, poor jaws float down in that it feels like wistful. Accuse was an animal. He was doing what he could. He's going back to the ocean. Now he is returning to where he came from its curiously beautiful and I I'm curious as to why it so beautiful. That we're starting at the end because we all really know what happens I mean. This moment sets forth a domino effect that terrorizes rice shiner and his family for years to come I mean the shock not only follows his son to world and his family to the Bahamas I mean this guy cannot catch a break but I do love this ending because. There's something so human about it, and maybe this is the Spielberg mixed in with a traditional horror movie. It's this relief and that music echoes riders relief. That did it like he so I mean. Yes, he's got that line. You know Smiley as son of a bitch, but there's a joy and laughter, and he shares that moment with Richard Dreyfuss and there's this. Tension that just drops from the entire film after. About an hour on that boat. You're on that boat on the ORCA for an hour, which is, I didn't really realize that before. It's really a to act film. Three Act Act one attack act to go after shark. Yes, and you just feel like there is something about that music that allows the audience to breathe again. If your audience is on the edge of your seat the entire time, it's like Oh, things are normal like we're going back to our real world, and there's fantasy and they're seeing that captures me, and I just thought that like. Roy Scheider reaction to that like his laughter in his smile, and and then seeing Richard Dreyfuss pop up off felt right, even though it felt. A little bit more, magical or light hearted. I and I think it's funny that you empathize with rush either and I'm empathizing with the shark. At music, but amy, that's shark was smart and was really trying to hurt them like it wasn't just a regular feel bad for that tiger. Shark on the shore. That was carport Tiger Shark. This shark was malicious in every way I. mean it was very smart. It was hanged. But either way I think that choice itself. You know when you watch this film if it's nineteen, seventy five in in the theater. That music alone as you're leaving, the theater says this is not a B. movie. It is not schlock like the what would be the common ending their like he blows up the shark dot and triumphant music, and now we high five and we did it. Bro Or something, agro know something like something more pompous, celebrate celebratory, and you hear that choice and you think no. This is a craftsman. This is somebody making an artistic choice you. That music makes me think like this is not a B. Movie. This is a movie by artist. Yeah you know this lays down the DNA of our summer blockbuster, or just our blockbuster, because we have multiple seasons of blockbusters now and I think the better directors take. All sides of what Spielberg does, and I think. More of the commercial directors just take the showy sides of Spielberg, which Spielberg really balances here in crates this movie that I think on this watch I was really on the edge of my seat, and it's all because he spent so much time on great characters that you care about these characters so much and not only are three leads, but everybody in this town. Like one of things they loved about this movie was the over talk. The double talk in the background talk is so funny and full. Enrich whenever you're in a crowded seen. People are having. Conversations as if they are three dimensional characters, not just how peas and carrots, peas and carrots and I've really connected to that I. felt like even in that moment there's like a master stroke of Spielberg just keeping characters and people in the world alive. It's just not a shark movie. It's people movie. We, I am so happy because I had the exact same and I'm curious. It we've I've Seen Jessica. ZILLION times. I'm assuming you've seen Johnson zillion times in I. Don't think I noticed Blair's of talking in this film. Until now until we've gone through this list of we've talked about Altman. Making these films you know that Steven Spielberg's going to be aware of Altman and I suddenly heard the influence of Altman in this you know the idea of like rich textural things, a couple of clips of just like all these people talking over at once. One of them is the too. Okay well. What if you play the one where they're deciding what to do about this shark at the Giant City Council meeting? I JUST WANNA. Say What we're planning so far. What about beaches chief? We're going to put on some extra summer deputies as soon as possible. And then we're going to try and use shark spotters on the beach. Are you going to close the beaches? Yes we are. Bringing some experts from the Ocean graphing institute on Mainland. Hours. I didn't agree to that. Only twenty four hours. Suits A couple of things I like in that. Is You to hear the mayor? Changes Mind Back Talk Oh. No, no, no, no, no, no, our editor at are ever going to do it this way, but yeah you you. It's the people are so forward and center the woman in the front. WHO's worried about her business? The there you. It's thick and I was thinking, too. You know you're you're aware that this is how he's GonNa do the soundscape in the movie from the very beginning. You get this phone call at Brody's house. You know hearing that there's a missing woman on the beach and I wanNA listen to this phone call because I think right away in this minute six of the film. You realize that Spielberg is not just GonNa make some shock shark movie, because here's Brody in the front of the scene talking on the phone in close up about. The trigger case you know what's happening. It's going to set this whole story in motion, and yet what you're really hearing in the film is just his wife in the background talking to the kids figuring out the day. And I love that it's not dramatic way to think of B movie director might have done it, which is only his audio. What? There's a missing person what could be happening on this person here I'll be right. There have to take the focus off of that. Thinking, GonNa live. Along. The cleanest thing I. Wash This is kid at. Fifteen twenty minutes right. I think what struck me about. This movie is brody is a character WHO's trying to be heard. And no matter where he goes whether it's his home for the most part, but really outside..

"You. You don't i. hear I hear old fashioned adventure. Guys were going on it here. We Go I. Hear I hear excitement I hear, maybe even a touch of star wars like we are at classic adventure were saying et before I, hear e, t the bicycles taking off in that scene. And not to say it's bad it it did. Strike me as odd though because. It's a very tense moment of the movie, and it feels like maybe a wrestling of what Steven Spielberg. Is Doing in this film which is very different than what he doesn't other films like it's. That seems more apropos to what's Steven Spielberg does eventually start doing in the eighties? Whereas this movie, it feels a little bit in Congress. Because it, it's a it's a tension film Beaumont, I don't know I feel like it's a scary moment there. You know this you know like I. Don't know there was a little bit of A. It just felt off to me a little bit. Yeah, that's so interesting because I do feel like.

After, the kinder- boy died vandalism drought fifty percents, so I'm not saying that maybe the shark should've gone them, but I think I'd trust the mayor on these issues going forward because of him are spiking shock. This was greatly. By the spiking island's economy mainly on. Hate that man, you gotTa. Love those suits. I mean come on. How many people did that? Shark killed three?

He got a second one. Oh nine before the German fleet scattered in disarray and a third one on the way back home base with the two victories already.

Later the four seventy ninth got brand new P fifty one mustangs arguably the best fighter of the war on October. Sixth nineteen forty four olds managed to shoot down a fuck wolf. One ninety the only other serious claimant to that title in an epic dogfight with his new Mustang name Scott for a fight that very nearly cost him his life when his own wingmen nearly shot him down by accident he had six kills when he went home at the end of his first combat tour in November and returned to the United States. But two months later he was back over. Germany promoted to major on February ninth. Nineteen forty-five olds got his seventh air-to-air victory. That very same day. Five days later on Valentine's Day he got three more on April. Seventh olds was escorting a flight of B twenty four liberators in his current Mustang which he'd called scat six when they encountered the saunder come on Elba. A lift WAFA squadron. That in the final weeks of the war had become so desperate that they're pilot strategy was to simply ram the American bombers in mid air. A pair of jet powered.

The Mustang Lake to land at around one hundred ten miles an hour but with the wing damage he had sustained olds discovered that anything below one seventy five and scat six would just roll heart rate and go inverted now. He would later right what to do. Bailouts seemed the logical response. But here's where sentiment got in the way of reason that airplane had taken me through a lot and I was damned if I was just going to give up on her. Why the burden? I survived the careening bouncing and juddering ride down the link the field. I guess I'll never know when the war in Europe ended two weeks later. Robin olds had achieved field grade rank and been given command of his own squadron. He'd been awarded the Silver Star. He shot thirteen German planes out of the sky and destroyed eleven more on the ground. He was the only pilot in history to make ace. That is get at least five.

Old took his undertrained undermotivated men out on mission after mission. The objectives never changed. There were two absolutely irreplaceable qualities that he needed to instill aggressiveness and teamwork but olds. Didn't do all of the teaching.
