"Reddits are the Reddit to Reddit in the tumblers are tumbling. She has already semi debunked. So she said that these are all new songs. So take that as you will. That is also what was shared with me now, look, narrative advisers are going to narrative us. I will say one of the challenges of this record in terms of the doubling back is, I feel like if it's doubling back to one moment, it's doubling back to lover. I know other people see other things or hear other things. But lover to me is maybe the least tonally consistent and least successful of the pre folklore albums, the canonical pre folk lore albums. And one of the things that I really struggled with on this record and Joe, you had shared that YouTube kid who was just like guessing if Jack Antonoff produced the songs based on the first three seconds of the vocal production, this is something I mean, we were talking about doubling back to an ID or doubling down on an idea. This particular textural approach, which to be Frank by the 8th time listening to this album, I was like, are we on a James Blake type beat? Like, what are we doing here? To me, I didn't seem like an insertion of rebar into concrete to make it stronger. It seemed like a kind of like we are 3D model printing a thing that already exists. Wow, that was a crazy construction metaphor. I don't even need to go back and listen to that. First of all, you can't see my HGTV. That's really, that's really where my stand and energy is being spent these days. That's true. Joe, does this record hit different in California? Joe. I've been on the move this week, and I haven't seen it. When I received folklore, I was remembering back. I was on vacation. I listened to it in a thunderstorm. It was perfect. Scenario wise. And you guys had the opposite experience. And I think that continues to play out in our reception of those records. This one hit me at a very strange moment. I've had a busy week. I've been on the move. I haven't been in a position. Rap capital in stores now. Thank you. Buy the book. So we can continue doing Taylor Swift podcasts. Literally till the end of the day.

"Their way here by victory. Howard, is there aspect of Serena's career we don't talk about enough? Yeah, I mean, I think there are two pieces of Serena's career that we don't talk nearly enough about. And one is the fact that she had very serious injuries, the pulmonary embolism, almost ended her career. And I think that one of the things we don't talk enough about in terms of just how much emotional pressure that's Serena and Venus had been under was right after the U.S. open in 2003 when their sister was murdered. And was shot in Compton, California. And so there's been a lot of trauma in that family. There has been a lot of off court issues that they've had to deal with traumatic issues they've had to deal with while the public is still expecting them to perform. So there's so much emotion that goes on in addition to being asked to compete in an individual sport where you have no coaching and no time out to no one gets to talk to you while you're competing. And then to be asked as well to now be the face of female empowerment for an entire generation. Serena Williams has carried an enormous enormous load. I think the other piece that's really important to remember when we're considering her is just the raw longevity of it. Serena Williams turned pro in 1995. She's been going for 27 years. And so when people talk about the upsets and people talk about the aura of Serena and whether or not Serena can win a major after becoming a mother, she's done enough. She's done plenty the number of people who are interested in this sport now because of her. The amount of drama she's given us, the championships, the excellence, the different ways in which she's empowered women to become whatever they've wanted to be, whether it was business, whether it was fandom, whether it was simply identity, whatever you want to call it. All of these different areas she's been an inspirational figure. And these are the type of things that we remember when you're really talking about legacy. These are the things we will remember them, matches against Azarenka will remember the fact that she completely stomped Maria Sharapova out of existence. We'll remember those things. But what you really remember, what really makes a legacy are all of the things that we're not talking about. The things that have nothing to do with wins and losses and sets and tie breakers and the rest of it. Howard after she effectively evolves away from tennis and transitions into this next chapter, what do you think her relationship with the sport is going to be? Also, great question. Because we've seen some of these athletes not have a second act that they want to stay close to tennis. You'll see them, I think a lot of the players now are tournament directors, David Ferrer's a tournament director. James Blake is a tournament director, Tommy Haas is a tournament director at over at Indian Wells. And so it's a good question. I don't know how much Serena is going to be that into the pomp and the circumstance of just being at tennis matches and being a legend. I don't know how often you'll see her. In fact, when Wimbledon did their jubilee Serena wasn't there. And she was actually in London. She was in the country. She was in country. And she and she did not show up. I think she went to a Rolling Stones concert. Instead, which kind of sent a message or maybe it didn't, but it just didn't look great. But I think that she is going to go follow her own path. I mean, if there's one thing that Serena has done over this time period, especially the last 7 or 8 years, is she has forged for herself a pathway that belongs almost exclusively to her. And she's not necessarily worried so much about appearances. She's going to do

"Heated gives you like mind feels and like you know so I feel like she's trying to make a record that like you said that we can easily incorporate into our lives. It's not a challenging album musically. It's more something that feels very comfortable off the bat, which is different from what she did with lemonade and self titled. You know, cell title has a lot of stuff that people really had to grow into. Same thing with lemonade. It's like, you know, that whole James Blake track, people like, why is this white man singing all on this Beyoncé's arm? But you know what this feels. I like very comfortable and at home from jump. And I think that's intentional. Yeah. Yeah, and I wanted to say, we have this album and we're inside, you know? Break my soul. She says, you know, we outside. And it's like, not quite, you know, we're not quite there yet. And but I do feel like this album has a lot of staying power. And I'm very excited to see a tour for this album. I'm very excited to see what this album becomes when it's out in the free world. And I feel like there's just so much joy and celebration in it. And she's always been very forward thinking, always very prescient in a way. And I feel like this is another moment where we're seeing that happen. And especially because I feel like in recent years, we've had albums come out and they come and go very quickly. And people are quick to be very cynical about certain aspects of albums. And I feel like with this just being online and on Twitter and things like that, people are loving this album, like almost totally. And it's like one of the rare moments where this has happened in recent years. And I feel like that has so much to do with the work that she put into it and the fact that she's working with the music she's working with the history and she's living and breathing with it. And that's like the key I feel to this album being so beautiful, so bombastic, so successful. Thus far. But yeah, I'm very excited to hear how this album transcends time. And you know the kind of jump on that and thinking about how she's always playing to our time. I think during the pandemic because we so inside, you know, most of the time, I think it's also been a time of people's individual creativity flourishing. I think that's how TikTok has become so popular during that time. And I think that's why she hasn't yet released any visuals for the album. Yeah. It's because she's saw that you can drop a song at midnight on Friday morning and by that afternoon, somebody's gonna have a whole little TikTok routine to it. And you know, it's gonna be a whole thing. So I think she was probably sitting back and watching that and going, wow, let me let people do their own thing to it first before I get in with my choreography and my looks and kind of over determine how things are supposed to be. Let me let people play with this almost and see what comes up with. And I think that's absolutely brilliant, I think it's generous and it's just another way that Beyoncé continues to challenge us as an audience but also to try to feed our inner souls and our creativity and everything like that. She always seeks to inspire. And I think by not having the visuals initially. That's another way that she's inspiring people to really get in touch with their creativity and think about like, what do you see when you listen to church girl? What do you imagine an alien superstar to look like? You know, just all of those kinds of things. I think

"I want to talk hip hop. I was like, let me make a call. It wasn't quite Daniel or Brian Daniels. Calling up. They could have called us Cesaro to get his spot in a joint. But I had to make a call. My voice and set out to the wifey. From views from the 7, everyone came through skinny. Ivan. Spence. Here at the desk. Shea on the chair. Everybody came through, chopped it off with me. Talk to hip hop in the beginning, Drake versus Kendrick. He talked Rolling Stones, list again. We had our top 5 hip hop albums all time. During that show, meal is fun to get different perspectives right or wrong on hip hop. Because for so, so many years now. I have sat next to mister. I gave Kanye West 5 mics. Mister, I've been in the game before I had gray hairs in my beard. So to hear people who aren't, you know, the top of the top Echelon hip hop historian. Like you're gonna be in like the documentaries, they're gonna call you like 15 years from now to talk about shit and early 2000s. Yeah, no, I didn't want that perspective. I want to like barbershop perspective. Times ten is a little crazy. So had them in here. And it was funny, got good feedback online, good reach on that episode. Everyone was talking about it. And surprisingly, I'm like minding my business, I'm working, you know, whatever. I check our reverse rat pack group chat, you listen to the episode. Yeah, 'cause of coal. It was cold. Which is rare. I don't listen to me, but I was gone and Cole was like, hey, you might want to listen to this, and I looked at who was on it. Set me up. Let me listen. Yeah, y'all are crazy. There's a few things to be fair. I had only one hot take. There's a few things. One, yes. Talking about the Draco. We didn't get a chance to talk about it, because I was gone. No, now we're talking about it. Is it interesting to listen to people talk about Drake's album, who don't understand this Drake album has been in the works for years? Because one, if you don't know who black coffee is, and I've talked about them like a billion times in this podcast. The executive produced that out. I knew exactly what was coming when I saw exactly the producer. People were surprised. I was like, oh, this isn't rapping Drake. Well, if you knew black coffee was executive producer now, you would know he's making an Afro house out. He's always been, and this is why I like Drake. This is my thing about Drake that I like. Me and Drake have very similar taste in music. We're not friends. We have very similar taste in music. He likes the stuff he samples. I've been listening to Sam. Like all the stuff that he samples and listens to James Blake and all that's all shit I listen to. So when he goes to make that music, I get it. Because, yeah, Jamaica has bars and he can rap, but that's not the only thing he likes. And people want to beholding him to just be in a rapper. Like I've watched irv Gotti was like, oh, you know, it wasn't hip hop. No, it's not a rap out. He didn't make that. He made a house out in Afro house out, which I'm cool with if that's the genre everyone makes sure that they keep it in. My biggest pet peeve is when people are like challenges can be one of the best hip hop albums of the year. Like, yo, what are the joyful red bone? I was like, that's not a hip hop album. No, it's not. No, like he made us a soul album. He made a funk out. Yeah, and then Tyler creators album before this. One, yes. A Grammy for hip hop. That's not a hip hop album. Because hip hop is still in the space where people haven't created subcategories. Like, you have alt rock, you have metal, right? You have those. They don't exist. It's rap or nothing, right? That's all you got. If you are a rapper. Right. You're doing rap. So when people like said, I hate to strike out. There's a couple of things. It was like, well, it wasn't for you in the first place. Right? The first thing first things first was for people like me. This is what I listened to. You're definitely the vacationer on a boat with a glass of wine. That's what a let's do the right. I listen to Afro house, I listen to electronic, I listen to that when I'm writing. And it's like, I saw people not on the show, but I saw people was like, you should have got case you're not a no, like black coffee is one of the biggest house producers in the world. For years, you've put them on a yearend list. I've talked about black coffee forever. They're single. Yeah, case you're not a two, but they're saying there's other people. And neo did house. Closer is a house song. Yes. This is where we get problematic..

"Can't train anybody in 24 hours. First off, in this era where former professional tennis players are given the role of tournament director, I haven't been for it from the beginning. When it was Tommy Haas, James Blake, Feliciano Lopez. I mean, for a while, I was like, why are all these guys getting the opportunity? And then actually I was like, it's actually kind of ghee forge. What did he have on his resume? When he proceeded Amelie mauresmo was a tournament director at a major. So I was like, okay, let's give Amelie a chance. I'm like, oh, let's give a woman a chance. And then honestly, the other night when I was up until like 2 a.m. trying to wind down from the Nadal Djokovic quarterfinal, it actually occurred to me. What is Amelie doing doing a press conference? So I looked at my clock because I thought about whether or not I was going to post show up and you did. You did the hard yards, Catherine. I slept in. I didn't, but I'm like, she's gonna be underslept underprepared. This is gonna be a mess. That's actually what I thought about before it happened. And then as it all unfolded, the only other time I've been equally as disappointed, honestly, was when I was president of the WTA in the early 90s, when our then number one player, Steffi Graf, said she was not for equal prize money. And I was given the assignment as to try and talk to her privately to say, if you feel that way, can you please not publicly state it? Because for the following reasons, so I don't know, it was just for me, it was like disappointing, but not surprising, given she's trained as a tennis player and as a coach, but I don't know what kind of training she had to be prepared for yesterday morning. Are you hopeful for the future? Maybe not overnight instant equality but incremental change at the very least. This is what I do know. Eras do change things do certainly tip, but I will never imagine in a 100 billion years that there would ever be ten night matches here in only one men's match, even if the scales tip a 100% back at other eras when the women's game really was on was extraordinary. And I think now is extraordinary. I mean, for iga, Schmidt, not to have a match of the day, given what's going on is crazy, crazy, and they could have in the second week they could have had the legends come out with Monsieur barham. They could have had an insurance match. They're really into the legends here, aren't they? They are. It massive crowds for that over on longland. They're it's a draw. So there's three out of 5 set. We could only have the women, we couldn't have women because we couldn't chance the short. They could have, in the second week of a major, there's all sorts of things going on. So I don't buy that. And I felt like it undercut one of the great performances in the women's game in the last 20 years, which is what for the night crowd not have seen. I say, that is a shame. I think it's also a shame. I am optimistic based on what I heard from Emily personally in that interview with Catherine and some conversations I've had today off the back of it from people within the game and people within the media on the television side. I'm just optimistic that I think there is a realization. I think Emily and Marissa would have got there to some degree without this in a year's time. The beat, but I think that this one actually help accelerate it. And bring into focus in her mind that that needed needs changing there's some change needed here. And she's actually in a position where she can influence change. So I'm ultimately glad that we've had these conversations because you don't get changed with that talking, dear. And so good luck to her. And I hope I hope that and personally I'm absolutely prepared to give her the chance. Hope she can figure some things out and next year if there are some changes that look right, absolutely I'm going to give her the credit for it. And she's never shied away from a challenge. No. She will step up. David lorin optimism shocker. Well, this is why we keep him around Pam. He keeps me from reading my grumpiest self. Pam, you're getting on a plane tomorrow and heading back stateside. So this is our last chance to ask you who's going to win these titles. Well, I mean, who couldn't go with beyond tech before the.

"That break your heart. A song or hearing from it is called foot forward. This is first album and it gets nearly three years. His last one assume form came out at the very top of twenty nine thousand nine hundred and this is kind of a concept album for james blake. Yeah it's interesting because he has gone on the record basically saying that he really respects stevie wonder's ability to write a song about anything about the birth of a baby about politics. And in this sense he didn't want to write romantic songs right. What is sort of expected of him. He wanted to really delve into friendship. And in this particular case it's sort of the friendships that fell apart during the pandemic for him. And i mean who hasn't experienced that situation and that's i think the hook for this entire album. What drew me to it was that it was so relatable. I think the best way. I've heard anyone put it during this past year and a half or so is that nobody can give as much as everyone needs. I think that's true. I was watching twitter and one thing that somebody said on twitter was that don't be upset if somebody isn't reaching out during this moment in the way that you want them to flip it and think about what they are dealing with right now well despite all the pleading in longing and sometimes the emptiness in some of these songs i thought the record overall was a bit more playful for him you know. He plays around with his voice and and sounding some subtle ways. I wanna play a bit of a song called frozen. This is my favorite cut on the record. Have.
"james blake" Discussed on Highly Questionable
"All right welcome to highly questionable. We got izzy gutierrez and the only person in the holiday question rotation with her own jersey behind her mcnutt leser oaks. And as you move ahead baxter you can see. Is it a big deal that no americans reached the us open quarterfinal. They've been playing the. Us opuses eighteen eighties in. This is the first time that there are no americans in the quarter files now. Is that a big deal. Yeah if you think it matters that the united states be good at tennis because hey we used to have people who are good at tennis all the time back in the day then. Yeah this is definitely a thing at first. I was going to be like well. How many times have we told the same story about. American ten is not being what it used to be a damn. I didn't realize we got to the point where we were. Do it historically bad thing when it comes to tennis. Now let me tell you what is a big deal in. What was a big deal. And i think was easy for us to ignore which is the magnitude of the williams sisters like they have been carrying american tennis. Basically for twenty five years at this point since we don't treat everybody as though they're the same kind of americans whenever wrap them up in the flag and said hey they are carrying. This country's banner in this fort didn't do that well. Guess what now that you don't see them. Around now the serena williams is injured and looks like we're on the other side of her career. You're going to look around and realize dam. That was america right there playing tennis. I think the women's side is in a lot better shape than the mid side. Even still if you look at just some of the names. Cocoa golf comes up right but the men's side is it's been hugely disappointing for a long time now like i grew up. This is something. I used to be embarrassed to say. I grew up loving tennis and me and my best friend warren. We skip school a couple of times to catch some of these tennis tournaments like the french open like. I didn't go to school that day. Because i wanted to see andre agassi. Jim courier didn't happen like tennis was a huge deal. You had andre agassi. You had courier. You had pete sampras you had michael chang and then that next generation while they weren't as good like andy roddick right. The taylor dense james blake. Come to mind but you also ran into you. Know the three greatest men's tennis players of all time. So if you didn't have federer in the doll and jovovich. And even andy murray. They're the maybe. Andy roddick has a few majors instead of the just one. And you're starting to think okay. Men's tennis ken recover. He could be the guy he could be our new pete sampras but since then it's been like nobody and you've got a couple of guys now. Sebastian quarter being one that they play a little bit differently and they have sort of potential for you as tennis. Men during this era of djokovic federer and the doll we haven't seen any american men basically just john is ner with arguably the greatest one trick pony in the history of sports just serving and trying to get his way into the winning winner's circle that way so i think it's a tough place on the men's side the women. This just happens to be a coincidence in a bad year for the us open. I feel like it's an tough place on both sides. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure that the women that are currently in the field are going to take it to the next level now. Granted slow stevens. One in two thousand seventeen gave us the great name of securing the bag and of course name iwosaki is still probably the highest ring. Woman that competed in this field but in terms of having that stuff that you can't quite identify that the williams sisters clearly had that the three great men that you mentioned that are not american. All have i just don't know you see it in some of the young crop who are not american. Can we take credit for layla. Fernandez north america does that work at all credit for size. true soccer. feels like she's american as american sheep to countries. That ain't this room all in all whether you wanna take partial credit for naomi or not. I just don't know if we're seeing that stuff in this crop of tennis players martina navratilova may deploy in. This gets tricky. We start talking about this at america's force but he's basically saying we got all these rich kids over here play. It isn't over there they hungry. You know what i'm saying like. They kick shale cases off the court in order to continue play. That's her argument. And i'm not inclined to buy into that necessarily but i do think in this country tennis leg golf not exactly an inclusive sport. It's the people who are in charge. Really what this thing to get better than. Go out here at hand out a lot more tennis rackets and a bid. He gets fixed who have higher expectations for this weekend to or mack jones. Oh yeah baby is wednesday. You know is wednesday. We scrape in the bowl. We try to get a sunday football game. There's a thursday night football game but we got to say that tomorrow's show today. We are talking about alabama quarterbacks who are not play in that alabama dolphins. The patriots played this weekend to tug of our lobi suiting up for the dolphins mag jones in his first. Nfl start for the patriots. Now which one do. I expect more from the one. I didn't describe with making his first start like we saw to start some games last year. Yeah he was coming back from injury. It was not a great off season to be a first round quarterback meghan that transition with everything. That was going on with kobe last year but he's just started looking like a dude. That was a top ten pick and there were a couple of times last season that he looked like that. But i didn't say a couple of gains. I mean a couple of times. Now they are expecting him to not so much. Carry them but at the very least lead them like this is a team that thinks it should be able to win playoff games which means their quarterback going to have to be better than he was last year and i expect him to be better than it was last year. I hear you on your logic. And i'm inclined to agree because to a does have that experience but i do wanna flip it on his head just a little bit. I actually think mac is under more pressure. Considering that the backup has been completely eliminated from the organization. I mean yes. There are backups. There but cam. Newton was supposed to be the guy that would at least come in and be serviceable for this patriot squad. All eyes are on that and lately. He's going on radio feeling himself just a little bit if he comes out and stinks. This is going to be bad very very quickly. So i think that jones has a lot to prove in game one. My big question. On meg jones is whether he can move is he can play in today's nfl. Kenny thro well on the run. When teams are sending the house is is he toast or can you get out and make a play. I also know that bill belichick coach. Tom brady forever and he couldn't do any of that stuff..

We are in all respective offices david with a new poster behind him which proudly displayed displays his own name just above his forehead which is brilliant addition to the remote recording situation. Yeah that that that was a a nice idea that on zoom call just looks deplete gross. So it's going. Yeah matt spin. Meant i mean. We've all sort of been a little bit on holiday haven't we. There's been a heatwave. We've coped with that. With varying degrees of success. Yes and the next thing to cope with is not sitting in your own share for podcast. Gonna go over that i i can't. I haven't sat in it sin in the past week. It feels. it feels wrong. There's no snacks here Wrong everything's will wrong but we will do. We will do our best to recall the vaguely right sounding podcast for humane. I say we're back. Ten is never went away. Tennessee's been happening all weeks a week. The wheels if the tennis world have kept on turning have been tournaments but more importantly. I think there's been a wedding top of the agenda. Alina selena has married willie wonka and it's a lovely thing purple attire. All around. I mean it was still a joyful occasion. They looked lovely and happy. It's still made my heart thing. But like my dad wearing flares on his wedding day fear in decades to come he will show this pitches to his children and say yeah regret. Not no i love to love. I'd love to try to on and then realized. Oh no i call it. He can but that probably applies to most clothing. Settle settle the debate. I liked it. I can't go movies. I okay yeah i just okay. I'm being i'm being. I'm being fusty. It was lovely. They looked so happy. I'm so pleased. That gems life is us for all eternity brackets barring voice but yes with this for all eternity according to the marriage fouls and we wish them very well. Oh you ain't nothing more to say about that. It's the tennis event of the summer. It was great it the tennis event this summer and alina spit selena's outfit had little notes to to tennis. Where didn't it. She's it was sort of a sporty top. Did it or didn't really. I was too busy. Looking is jacket. I didn't ready nicest but she got on. It was all it was all very very in love. the attorney walked back group of french. Tennis players is called. Sima songa gasquet and memphis a new musketeers. I don't know not the not quite musketeers. Golden golden generation. I dunno anywhere mosquito. They were all there which i thought was kind of ood. We poisoning them. The golden challenges. I think that. I think they've already been poisoned with that anyway. Loveliness much loveliness what else. We had going on in the tennis world this week. We have had olympics news Not all of it. Not all of it. Great in fact a lot of it. A lot of it really not great. We've had roger. federer. Unsurprising i think pulling out to the olympics G too. I think what he described as a setback with his knee injury. Which doesn't sound great bertini's out as well. And we've had joe counter donovan's evans and most recently cocoa golf having to pull out from playing the olympics due to testing positive for cova nineteen oversee for content. That happened on the eve of wimbledon. She said she. She isn't sufficiently recovered to to be able to give her best. At the olympics. Dan evans tested positive. More recently and cocoa gov just a few days ago. I think so. I mean i feel completely pumped about the olympics. I really do. I'm i'm covering them myself year of sport. I'm i'm really glad they're happening. I think they could be wonderful. But i'm i'm so anxious about the caveat situation it feels really on a knife edge There there are going to be lots and lots of cases. I'm sure the tokyo organizing committee of models that and have sort of threshold in mind. For how many cases is tolerable manageable. It feels really on a knife edge to me. It couldn't could end being the events that we were fearing that it might be last year in various tennis events politically the. us open. Remember when we spoke to james blake and we were talking about well. What happens if you get to the quarter-finals and then suddenly two or three of the draw just can't play and things like that you could end up races with three in three eight in the final or something like that To which my son said. Oh yeah then you get medal. But i didn't know what i was making. The scottish blake won the hundred meters like he was a recruitment consultant. Do you mean alan wells in the nineteen eighty six. I was up in the middle of the night watching that very excited. And we'll be up in the middle of the night this time around watching a roy. Jones win the javelin roy jones who's taking a career trajectory changed from being one of the greatest boxes of all time to become a jelly bank. Yes to his. it's interesting when i tr- i decided to look on the bright side the other day and do list of all the names that were playing in the tennis still because so many pulled out and actually when you look at it. It's quite a good list because we had the news this week that nobody jovic is playing. I think it wasn't a huge surprise to us. We expect him to play as we said Is we said on our last loss wimbledon daily. Podcast bit still to have that confirmation and today that both world number ones would be going. It felt if pretty big didn't and i mean frankly i think the enormity of what you're trying to do and that story line. His presence at the olympics will be enough to sustain the men's tennis event and there are you know there are some challenges to sit to pass. Medvedev gonna be there and there's lots of opportunities for players to win medals so that i think we'll be exciting and then yes. There have been some high profile withdraws from the women's event but my goodness it still rammed. I think the top nine players this year in two twenty one row still there. So this as you said ashcroft said he leading leading the way now soccer coming back the so much to look forward to and i think in tennis as well at the olympics doubles gets elevated as well with with those medals on the line. And we've got alabama who gang for the for the career golden slam for them so much and it's best to three so david's theory put to the test you still have to serve out a match. Invested three sets steer it. All you need is a double break. I didn't know that is proven to be insufficient. But anyway we wish we wish them very well and everyone. Travelling to the olympics fingers crossed for for not just the tennis event. The whole the whole thing that will be positive cases that is i mean they're already. Oh it's nine hundred thousand people gathering gathering in one place for more corners of the world but just fingers crossed it remains. Manageable and event is a celebration of sport Which is absolutely what it deserves to be We have had inductions this week..

"N. Y. C and today could be a big day for police reform in New York City, New York City Council Is unveiling a package of 11 separate bills. Let me list some of them for you removing the police commissioner's final disciplinary authority, You know, right now, no matter what the civil complaint Review Boy Civilian Complaint Review Board recommends an accused officer's case. Commissioner can overrule them that would end ending qualified immunity for police officers. People could sue them personally for damages for certain things. Future police commissioners would need confirmation by City Council. The mayor couldn't just appoint them. As a mayor can now data collection on traffic stops investigating police officers with a history of bias and reforming the role of school safety agents so they don't carry weapons. Don't wear uniforms. And they get retrained and techniques such as restorative justice. There are others, too, but those six Air Corps and construct the conversation with our next guest, New York City Council speaker Corey Johnson, Mr Speaker. Great that you're here again. Welcome back to W. N. Y C. Thanks, Brian. Good morning. Thanks for having me. I hope you're well. I hope you're healthy. You two want to start with the big picture on what you're doing today regarding police reform. Sure. So we put forward these bills actually a couple of weeks ago, and you mentioned some of them. This really Brian is furthering the aim of reimagining public safety in our city and trying to prepare Ah broken relationship that's existed for a long time between police and the communities. That they are supposed to serve. So you mentioned some of the bills ending qualified immunity for police officers. We can do that. Locally. The bill that you mentioned that would remove the NYPD s Exclusive authority over please discipline and would allow the CCR be the civilian complaint Review board to impose just plain cases. That actually is a resolution all that he needs to help us. Make that happen. Subjecting the police commissioner to the advise and consent of the city Council, just like we have for the head of city planning and for the deal I commissioner And for the corporation Council that would need to be done by referendum. But we can put that on the ballot as a council on then one of the bill that I want to highlight Brian you didn't mention is a bill that would create a non police emergency response. Mental health emergencies. This bill would require the Health Department to develop a non police response program based on six successful existing models. Denver is doing this right now, with very, very significant. Success. The police department there is actually hailing the program, the city of Denver put in place that puts mental health professionals first and foremost when responding to people that are dealing with mental illness and who aren't violent. So that is a flavor of some of the bills. This is the governor has a April 1st deadline for municipalities across the state to enact some of these and so the council is plowing ahead. We've had two hearings in the last week on two of these bills. We have additional hearings coming up there 11 bills and resolutions in total. And listeners. We can take some phone calls for New York City Council speaker Corey Johnson. They could be on this package of proposed police reforms or anything else. 646435 70 to 86 46435 70 to 80 or tweet. At Brian Lehrer. Let me go a little further with you into some of those reforms that you listed and I listed on removing the police commissioner's final disciplinary authority. Over officers accused of misconduct and that misconduct is substantiated by the civilian complaint Review Board. Would it be the review board? That decides whether to fire a police officers to spend the police officer. Whatever Do you think commissioners today have incentive to let bad cops bed behavior slide? Well, we have seen too often in the past Brian that there have been recommendations by the CCR be related to instances of You know, violations of use of force, abuse of authority, discourtesy offensive language and not just the current administration. But this has gone on for years and years and decades. Since 2 CC R B was created by Mayor Dinkins. That police commissioners don't abide by it. They go against what the recommendations are so yes. What we're calling for is the state Legislature. To either do it themselves or give us the authority to have the CCR be have the final say on disciplining officers that have violated their duty. And unending qualified immunity for police officers. People could sue them personally for damages for certain things. Which things and why Well, this is a bill Brian. That really seeks accountability of the amount that any officer could be fine is capped at $25,000. This is what other Municipalities have done across the country that have ended qualified immunity again. I think the city of Denver has done this, but there is broad. Consider He is an impediment toe holding bad cops accountable and the way it is right now in officer can violate someone's civil rights and the immune from almost any kind of civil lawsuit. We think this will help build trust with communities. There is a long list of Instances. I don't have them in front of me, Brian. But we have worked with advocates and also lawyers to ensure that the different instances that were talked about make make sense are plainly clear, and we would have the authority to do under this bill. But I'll give you one instance that many New Yorkers may remember. If you remember that James Blake, the former tennis pro, was standing outside of Grand Central Station ah few years ago and was racially profiled and tackled. By a detective who was playing close. James Blake couldn't do that officer. That officer was protected by qualified immunity. An instance like that someone like James Blake could actually Sue that police officer and it's not just about the officer. It's also about you know people being able to go after the police department as well, but in this instance, it would allow some accountability with individual officers that violate people's civil rights. Did you say Captain $25,000 in damages? Yes, not capped for Capt. With the individual officer, but no caps related to what they could get from the city or from the NYPD. Right. I realized $25,000 is a lot for any normal person to have to pay out of pocket. But it's very little in terms of damage suits that people file in the world if they're significant heart, right. Most most of these losses, Brian that would come forward. It would be a suit against the city and against the individual officer, so the person who had been harmed would likely get a lot of money from the city if there was a finding of violating civil rights. But this also adds another layer of accountability that doesn't exist right now. Daniel and Bay Ridge. You're on W N Y C Hi, Daniel. Hi. I have a question. There is no affirmative duty required under the NYPD contract of NYPD officers. Haven't they don't have an affirmative duty to protect or to serve New Yorkers. Do any of the bills that are that are being Brought forth today have an affirmative requirement for law enforcement officers to protect and serve the citizens of pay their taxes, which in turn pay their wages. Daniel. Thank you for that question. I I'm a little, um I don't think that's explicit any of these bills. I think that that is something I have to go back. And look, I don't know exactly what happens..

No US Open for Nadal; Olympics Re-Lived: 2004 Athens
"Fellow folks, and welcome. Once again to the tennis podcast and the latest edition of Olympics relived, we've already lived through the Olympics nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, three to the two thousand in Sydney, and we now arrive at two thousand four Athens Olympics return to it, spurs place one, hundred, four years earlier just before we get onto reliving. Olympic things a little bit of news to one since our last weekly tennis actual tennis based podcast couple of days ago. The knees we've had is the entry list is out for the US Open. And Rafael. Nadal is not on it. He has made an announcement that he will not be playing the USA Open. It is for health risk based reasons, which I think we'll. We'll respect that obviously disappointing for the tournament that that won't be their first. Grand, Slam with neither federal known adult, since Nineteen Ninety nine on the women's side nine. If the world's top turn on the entry list, it's only a number one ashburn on it. Obviously, entry list does not mean list of players that are actually definitely going to play. But it's nonetheless, you know this early stage, a bit of beast for the US Open, and the other bit of News we've had is that. As entirely expected at the Madrid Masters and premium mandatory tournament has been canceled. I. Mean the writing on the wall. That as we discussed on Monday, but it has been formally cancelled. We do understand there's a chance that Kitsch Buell, which is tournament that must get mentioned on every tennis podcast apparently. Might. Now, move. Back a week to take up that place in the calendar where Madrid. We're going to be of I said that quickly enough so that we can move onto Olympic stuff. Is Seen as possible. I mean there are a lot of good players. All over those interests, and as you say, who knows how many of them will end up playing but him and we we knew that the likelihood was the Dow wasn't gonNA play. There was maybe a little bit of doubt about that. When Madrid was canceled perhaps Nadal might have changed his mind, but you said it's at the time you felt that if it was a view on the virus itself and not wanting to travel and it's not going to change and sure enough he made it clear that it was because of his concerns over the virus, he just feels the world isn't ready for that and he's He's not comfortable to travel. I did sort of slightly Riley. Smile. When I saw the pressure relation, the US not even including the dowels name in the release, not even acknowledging that they're defending their reigning champion was not actually going to be there because of the decision he taken and yet they did mention that Roger Federer wasn't going to be there because of his injury I thought that was poor. I think just acknowledging the champion would have been a classier thing to have done, and actually I noticed in Chris. Clarity's piece overnight in the new. York Times that he spoke to the tournament Director Stacey Allaster who? took a completely different tack and pay tribute to refer and said, she looked forward to returning and I think that that is certainly the right way to of played that. But yeah. We've also seen one or two notes overnight of the protocols that the USDA plan to. Employ for covid nineteen testing, and if somebody tests positive in a team or an or apply themselves, the play will just be removed from the tournament and we'll have to isolate and. The words of James Blake really came back to me are upon reading those rules of just what it might take even for the tournaments if it had a lot of. People testing positive in having to be removed from the drawer. How many Coulda draw take you know this? This something I hadn't really considered before and if you're staying independent accommodation, so electing not to stay in the. Official bubble hotels. Then you have to pay for and be responsible for private security to monitor your bubble adherents. which is intense but space slightly reassuring. But goodness me, it's. Any ad, the question remains unanswered of of what the threshold is for that tournament. What's what stage does D stop treating individual cases and start saying as a? Hot Sports that needs to be needs to be shut down and his depressing is that. Prospect. is they they need to have a plan for that scenario?
Tennis is back; James Blake discusses the challenges
"Hello. and. Welcome to the tennis podcast. It is Monday the third of August twenty, twenty and two. There is tennis actual tennis. Not, exhibition tennis competitive tennis featuring plays, we've heard of playing for ranking points and prize money. We haven't seen any of it yet. It's just been. It's just been qualifying for the weekend but at the Palermo WPA event does get underway the main draw in earnest. Later on today David's Matt I, Give You Tennis It has suddenly occurred to me that we were together when tennis was last to think. Remember when we were watching. Dubai. Was it when Jovic Matt. Watch. Kim Clijsters Return in my lounge. Yeah. That feels like a different lifetime. I. Think. I was. Kind of the last weekend of tennis, which was the Davis Cup qualifying which. Never, find run event, which is taking place to eighteen months after they. After they, qualified for it. And the even then there were. It was kind of in the background there were rumbling signs of covid nineteen. I think the airport I was at in Hungary actually had a case and they shut the airport down and but then two days later everything just shut down it's amazing how quickly it happened. Just. Tennis tennis is back and it came back with a tennis way because I think the first day of qualifying in Palermo ended gone to am in the morning. kind of like we're doing this again. Given there's no crowds to worry about a no corporate lunches to around the there is no excuse for that is the because he can stop playing at eight am. And you can play on his you can play on his many courses is as you want or need to I mean how how it is? So tennis is it like comfortingly reassuringly tennis. is finishing yeah but also stupid. We stopped terriers and your we. When you didn't go to the airport because Indian Wells was canceled. You had a fully packed suitcase. State fully packed for some time. What is status? Is still my bedroom floor it hasn't been unpacked is had items removed from I would describe it now as haw full. Because Yeah I've removed you know the old parachutes. Only items only items with an elasticated waste obviously because lockdown But yes, all items with an elasticated waste have been removed from it. And all items which you might have to wear a Nike shoe with awesome accessories they remain in the case. Keeping most of. My bedroom floor. I said I said I would leave it the like Tracy unmade beds for the duration of Tennessee's absence and I'm a woman of my word five months. Yup. There's no. Mouse. No no mouth. Remembering the mouse, the other day and thinking was that dream It was that feels like a different lifetime. The masses in the suitcase I know why inspect that regularly? Don't you don't joke about that because that is that is those are the dark thoughts 'cause my mind when I'm trying to get to sleep. So. Yes. My suitcase remains on unpacked a spouse. Now I should probably technically go to unpack it this afternoon before three PM, which is when right the main draw of Paloma starts in the UK. Literally part of the Furniture Knob? Yes. Okay. I will. I will consider that we WANNA pitch empty. I mean that will just be a pitch of an MTC case day K. Okay, sure and case with just a mouse corpse at the Boscovich. It's It's the content that everyone's waiting for you. Welcome. Seven terms of tennis. News from this week, there's been no sort of big bombshell news. The deadline of the thirty first of July has been put. On the US Open confirming. Wants him four whether or not? It was going ahead? We haven't had that sort of concrete hundred percent confirmation. From the US Open from everything we're hearing as much as the little concerned around a concern around everything we're hearing suggests that with a heck of a lot of regulations in place in and details of those those rules and regulations have been. Leaking sporadically of the last couple of weeks, it will be going ahead. I mean seems to me that the only outstanding detailed in terms of it being categoric is. The quarantine situation on reentering the you and I think I mean in some ways that is I don't know whether that might even be made easier by the fact that it sounds like Madrid isn't going to happen anymore in this is not quite such a rush to get back to to Europe in order to play the very next event.

Daniil Medvedev claims first Masters title in Cincinatti
"The world's best men's tennis player at least at this moment is deal medvedev going into last week. The twenty-three-year-old russian had made two consecutive tournament finals here in washington d._c. And then in montreal then this past week in cincinnati he we used huge first and second serves and really solid for hands back ends to beat world number-one electric in the semi finals and divvied viewed goffin in the final to win the biggest title of his career and move up to a career-high number five in the world behind only jovic rafael nidal roger federer and dominic team stephens hero. The eighth ranked stefanos citybus. Thank you is owen foreign his career against gets medvedev seats apostol ben rothenberg last week than medvedev plays sloppy adding. It's good sloppy. He can make you miss without your understanding how you just missed you. Miss shots that you don't mess. That's deep kind of. I watched medvedev in d._c. So i have a good sense of how well the dude is playing but i it didn't know before i saw a pretty oblique tweet on sunday. Is that three years ago medvedev was defaulted from a match on the second tier challenger tour. You're in a match which was played on clay and savannah georgia medvedev. Who was then ranked number. Two hundred sixty in the world was playing donald young young as a black american can player in the first at the chair umpire. A black woman in sandy franch went down to the court to check the ball mark on shot medvedev hit. There was close to the sideline. She called the ball out giving young the point which led medvedev mark. I know that you are friends. I am sure about it. After the game was over french called over tournament supervisor advisor medvedev was quickly defaulted for what the united states tennis association later referred to as questioning the impartiality of the umpire based on her race. There is unfortunately precedent for that incident in two thousand one. Australian lleyton hewitt claimed that a black line judge at the u._s. Open was calling foot-faults on him to to favor hewitt's black opponent american james blake. I've only been foot-faulted of one end. Look at him. Look at him. Look at him. Mate hugh had said look at him. I and you will tell me what the similarity is. Get him off. The court. Look at what he's done. Hewitt was not penalized during a match or afterwards the u._s. Us open tournament director brian earley who you may remember as the guy who came on the court during last year's yes open final when serena williams demanded to speak to the terminent director during her her conflict with chair umpire carlos ramos early ruled that there was no violation of quote grand slam code of conduct and that quote the evidence events was inconclusive as to the intent of mr hewitt's remarks to the chair umpire q._a. for his part said i come from a multicultural country. I'm not racial any way at all. Though hewitt didn't get sanctioned. John mcenroe called his on-court statement unforgivable. It has indeed followed hewitt for his whole career areo still hear people mention it when hewitt's name comes up medvedev's words have gotten less attention because they came in a minor league event probably also because he wasn't yet well known when it happened as far as i know medvedev has never commented on this <hes> the incident did get brought up in two thousand seventeen when at wimbledon medvedev eh opened his wallet and started throwing coins at the base of the umpire's chair to make a not so subtle point about the empires bias alleged bias towards his opponent it
