"Where I expected her to be at this stage of her life slash career. It's fun. She looks like she's having a laugh. 100%. And she's always done it her way and I'm like brilliant, which more people could be like her. But people tell me that the close inner circle M is that true. Yeah, yeah. Because you just can't say Madonna and Madonna it'd be weird. Yeah. But I won't listen to people slagging her off. If they're not into output right now or look or her, I don't know her music choices or whatever because she literally is the blueprint for the pop world we now know. Yeah. And also, isn't it that when someone has given you so much, you then start to look to them to give you everything you want and maybe that's a lot of responsibility. Exactly. And yeah, absolutely. Yeah. I think that she looks like she's having loads of fun and be interesting to see what she does next. I know they're doing the film thing. I'm not sure if there's more music coming, but maybe there's a place here on the soundtrack. But what I always thought was amazing about her was when she was talking about doing that film WE and she's obviously done various films throughout her career and this journalist said to her, I always love a Madonna deep dive on YouTube Herald. Madonna being a bit their words not mine obviously. Also love. But this journalist said, a male journalist said, what made you think you could make a film? She said, well, everybody told me I couldn't make music, and that worked out. So amazing. I think I can't do a film. I have to remember the context of Madonna, like where she was in doing the stuff she was doing. The context and the contacts of that is in the people that you're around. If you're around super creative people who are multi disciplinary, why not reach out into another media form and give it a go and if you can work with all the best people and you can get and you can get funding and you can go make something. Why not? I'm sure she loves a challenge. How many number one hits is she had? How many number one albums? How many sell out tours? Probably challenging things are exciting, so maybe to do a swerve and make a movie that was a challenge for her, which you probably enjoyed. So I mean, this is just a guessing, but you're close to Batesville. Jodie harsh comes out as not close personal friend of Madonna. The only person who doesn't want to be best friends in Madonna. I didn't say that either, but we're just who are your mutual friends, which has got to have a name dropping. Oh, yeah. Designers, Jeremy Scott, Ricciardo. Who's obviously at burberry. Man, Marcus, the photographer, Mark. It's one of my best mates. He's Madonna's one of his guys mates. Tons of people, actually..

"I want to talk to you about queer nightlife because it's really important. Is feel it your knife. Yeah, so I co own that with little gay brother, Clayton. Okay, cool. Yeah, so when we first launched the night, it was Jodie harsh on little gay brother presents. Feel it. But then we just left it off because it sort of became its own beast quite quickly. When we went into lockdown, I was under the illusion that I would never do another club side of my artist project. DJ stuff was blowing up. But then I thought, with everything being shot down during lockdown. And everyone was speaking about the importance of nightlife, the lack of nightlife that how people were missing the dance floor and I was reflecting on how much I've loved doing club nights and throwing parties and you know and it's good income and it's good to provide a safe space for people and it's a creative outlet for me and I love working in collaboration with people. So I thought let's just do another one. Let's just do let's do one more. I would after feel it I definitely won't set up another club like that it will be like the last thing that you'd be like those bank robbers is always one last heist. I see that I know what you feel like. Sometimes I check in. But I've seen your dog prices. I feel that it kind of needed to happen. I felt like it was only right to come out of the pandemic. And there to be a New Jersey harsh party to go to. And it's obviously collaborative night we've played some, but I just felt like it was almost my duty. I was also thinking, God, that's going to be so much competition though, that's the only problem that's going to be so many club nights launching. I am so surprised that every time dick and Harry isn't doing a club night, I can't believe it. Same old shit. Back on. The world changed so much during the pandemic. We were literally locked down for a year and then some. I can't believe people were still doing the same title parties to be honest. I wanted to do something brand new. I didn't want to rehash room service or something like that. I don't really believe in revisiting stuff. What was your, because I walked into feel it and I was like, mom is home. Yeah. Finally, I feel like I'm in a space that is representing what it is to be queer in 2020. Totally. That was very important. Very much a diverse party. In terms of all across the board and somewhere that girls can come too, for sure, like I didn't want it just to look mask for mask. I think that's how fucking over. Exactly. Yeah, it's super queer, but then also, if you want to, if you're a gym muscle boy, is still there as well. I'm going to just drag anyway, isn't it? Yeah, well, you'll find them on the balcony people if you need any direction. Yeah, totally. It was kind of like I pieced together some of my favorite clubs from the past as well. A bit of trade maybe. Which I popped into a few times when I was 15. So it was in turn mills, wasn't it? It was, yeah, I had great fake ID and I went to that couple of times before it finished..

"Welcome back to part two of hemo sapiens with Jody harsh known less. I love Jody. If you haven't had the first part, go back to part one, listen to that in the feed. And if you have here you go his potty. Just for anyone who doesn't know. So JD marsh was like, she was kind of the new Jordan for ten minutes, was kind of the end, and she just went away. And she always wore two belts as a dress. That was her thing, wasn't it? And a lot of fake. I remember. And I don't mean that rudely. I just remember that to the image. And there was always like camo a camo skirt. I think she was on big brother, was she? I think so. I'm not really sure. I haven't really followed her career. I just kind of like our names to sound the same and that's literally because someone gave it to me. Did you ever meet her? Oh, I have him passing, but like when I started doing drag. I don't we're not in the same room. I'm kind of more in the same room as Madonna, rather than I'm getting this picture. Don't you worry about it. Our careers have kind of different trajectories. But it was when you first came to prominence, she was very much around. She was very much part of the public conversation. She was on the front cover of he every day. I guess she won't answer. She really what? I mean, as far as I was concerned. I really tracked her career. But then tell me a bit about the creation of Jodie harsh and do you remember the first time you became, yeah. First time ever, I planned it for a while. I went to Mac cosmetics and had them do my eye makeup at the carnaby street store. Through some sunglasses on, went back to my flat share. Got all my stuff, and I got on the tube, went to heaven, I knew some of the work that they allowed me to get ready in the backstage area. So I finished getting rid of my foundation and lipstick on, looks completely bastard. And walked out into a full heaven nightclub. I was so nervous. So fucking nervous. Like freaked out so full of full of ego and like, oh my God. What are they going to think of me? And what was the hair? Flat, definitely didn't like this. And when you got through the nerves, how did it feel? Did you feel amazing? Liberated, confident, awakens. I don't know, I really just felt like, oh, I want to do this again. It was only meant to be a one off thing. Interesting. And I wanted it always is. So do you ever talk about Jay and who you are and all of that stuff? Is that something you talk about? Because I don't really see any talk about it. Well, yeah, I mean, I am obviously a real person, but I. Mean, I don't put pictures of myself up out of drag. For no real reason, I just, I'm super private and like to have a nice normal life. I like the idea of going down to M and S without being stopped to be told something or whatever. I don't know. I just, I really enjoy that kind of like Superman Clark Kent kind of vibe. I could just kind of like, I'm really quite low key and being a drag for me, it's so fun and so creative, but it's also very much my work world. And when you're, I think when anyone's not working, when they're fully switched off, they want to be fully switched off. I really enjoy turning the light switch on and off..

"Like it's just a really Alan Jared said. Very, very efficient way of working. And then you're incredibly spoiled because of course nobody else does it that way. No, I mean, it's pretty incredible to think about. I don't know why more people, I guess they don't it comes with experience to be able to juggle that many moving pieces. But yeah, I mean, you mentioned the fact that, if anyone hasn't seen the movie yet, there's this is a story told from three different perspectives. So we're seeing the alleged rapists perspective. We're hearing we're seeing the perspective of the husband who's wife has allegedly been raped. And then we're seeing the perspective of the person who's made the allegations your character. And first of all, one of the things that people maybe would like to know, it will hurt interest in checking this out is that this is the first movie in 25 years in which Matt Damon and Ben Affleck co wrote since good will hunting. But they're also joined by Nicole off center who is it correct? It was my understanding that she was essentially focusing on the third perspective from your characters perspective because madam Ben were savvy enough to understand that they would probably defer that to a female writers perspective as well. Is that basically correct? Yeah, it is. Nicole was always a part of it, you know, from when I came on board. It was Matt Ben and Nicole, but yeah, that was my understanding as well. It was just like, you know, in order to understand, especially in experience like this, I'm being a woman. You needed a woman at the helm. And you know, just to, you know, you needed a woman's sensibility. And just to really try and get that nuance of what it was that she went through. So it was so amazing to have Nicole, you know, I remember when we were on location in France and we'd spend a lot of time together. Just hanging out. Like she's a ton of fun. I have to say a lot of it was just relaxing and letting all head down. But also, you know, just sitting down with the script and because there was so little information about her clinging to things that we did know, like she spoke 5 languages. She loved to read and Nicole was like, she has to have friends. Like, you know, come on, let's see her, you know, in an environment other than washing a husband's feet..

"Of doing that and not everyone approved. It was going to be and that really was such a wonderful way to step into the last duel just being on a set of that size and realizing that you prepare the same morale is the same. It's just on a much much bigger scale. So that was a lovely thing to experience before I stepped onto a Ridley Scott bell. For sure. Well, and I just want to note for listeners, I mean, Ryan Reynolds, Taika Waititi, Shaun levy. These are guys who have a lot of background in comedy and they've all said in different things that I read prepping that they were just amazed that somebody whose background is not as exclusively in a way in comedy could step in and do improv and keep up and hold their own very much in that format. So that was that. And then you mentioned going pretty much from that to the last duel. And I think the thing to note there is that a lot of people think of really Scott the first thing that comes to mind are gladiator type movies with those males and swords and sandals. But they should remember, there's also the same guy who's done thelma and Louise. So it feels like in a way the last stool is a blurring of his two these two sides of his personality, yeah. And so I guess I just wonder how did you first hear that Ridley Scott might be interested in you for one of his movies? Yeah, so again, that came through an email. I got an email, she not really would like to meet me. It's a new film called the last duel. Loosely based on this book. And he liked to meet me to have a chat in London. So I was like, wow, okay. Obviously, of the book, wasn't aware of this kind of moment in history, ordered the book immediately, so I could do some homework. And I went and met Ridley in London and I know this now because I've had them speak about it when I've been in this company, but he doesn't really like to audition people per se by making them read the script. He likes to kind of get a sense of who they are. And he watches a lot of television and the law of film.

How're you doing great and it's nice to connect with other essential ill people always yes. So Jodie, how did you come into the world of essential oils and specifically breen related issues? While I had kind of started my life as a journalist and then I started working business had my first kid who was easy had a second one twenty two months later less easy and it turned out it was nutrition that was really throwing off his little system, and so I spent so much time banging my head against the wall until I figured that out the one that I realized how important food was in. Terms of your mood, your energy, your ability to focus I went back and got a degree in nutrition was helping other people a Lotta MOMS but you know Kinzer squirmy and it's hard to keep them still the test them. So I learned this technique called missile testing that allowed they could deliver. It was still really an easy way to identify remedies which was helpful when my bottom fellow my man has been was bipolar. Antonio suicide and had to be moved to a residential treatment facility and the kids were five and seven, and once we got him all Seta. I collapsed my adrenals have been running a ten year marathon and it just it had taken a toll on me but that wasn't very sustainable because I was suddenly a single parent I had a job and. It no matter how exhausted I wear they still needed to be fed the laundry John need to be cleaned exactly. So it was then that a friend actually gifted me a box of essential hills because I had been trying everything I could think of all the things that have worked in the past really failed me and I was so desperate and and really so fatigued both physically, and mentally that I just muscled. Tested you know as anything in here, going to be helpful for measuring all's and my experience muscle testing is if something works, it's almost like it's a very loud signal and it was such a strong signalise league felt optimistic and I was like Oh you know identified five oils and then it occurred to me like what do I do this? I normally get one and I realized that I can combine them so i. Each oil and kind of combine them in the right amounts, put them on my adrenals on my lower back and for the first time in a month felt like myself again felt like Oh my God I go running. Do you have to remember what those five oils were by chance? Yeah. It's actually the combination that I now have in my adrenal gland it's time Rosemary Rosemary Stimulatory Manuka cinnamon and. Gabum in as you know oils ever powerful in their own but when you combine them, there's synergy that occurs. amplifies Fairfax, and so they're stimulatory oils but they seem to be adapted genetic Yeah. So you re rub them on the on your lower back over the dreams. Yeah. Man I just recently had this. Huge moment with oils. Again, you know you have them all the time you know you just keep having them and you're like Oh my God big things really do work and it was when I was cutting out coffee. Drinking how day in the morning which verdon normal person is probably fine. But for me, it was like really recognize system and so I just cut it out cold Turkey and I was. I. Was just I had Migraines I was just miserable and so yeah I. Busted out some oils and rub them on major knowles and then put like hot pack over top. And it really Mike would bring me back to life. It was it was an amazing feeling. So That's interesting that that was sort of your in for oils was it anyways it was so quick and I thought this is amazing. You know and also I had been working as a practitioner and you know someone's deficient in vitamin B wants an easy fix ray if you're trying to trigger your pineal gland or at least Melatonin were balanced hypo film, it's get into areas of the brain. That's tricky. There all these kind of low hanging fruit, easy things and then harder things and so once I had that experience of wow, is work then. I kind of was reverse engineering witched do right Oh. My Gut is really compromised I league. So makes sense that no matter what I'm taking three my digestion pathway isn't really getting a simulated but something I can topically apply that could sue the skin into the bloodstream immediately. So okay. That makes sense why the other remedies were working in while this worked really quickly right? Just sort of bypasses the gut there and that it makes total sense to me when I hear that that explanation of getting the oils into your bloodstream, which is gonNa then go to all these parts of your body really get in deepen in my mind it seems very. Pretty straightforward just like you would use any form of planned medicine or any sort of you're getting good stuff into your body and letting it do its job. But for a lot of people they just they can't look past essential oils is just things that smell good. You know.

Weinstein case could influence other sex crime prosecutions
"Are talking this hour about the verdict handed down yesterday in the case against Harvey Weinstein. And what if any work remains to be done in the metoo movement and whether or not yesterday's verdict was a watershed moment in the metoo movement? I'm joined by a team. Goss graves. She's president and CEO of the National Women's Law Center and co-founder of Times Up Legal Defense Fund and joining us. Now from New York is Jodi Kantor. Jody along with her colleague. Megan twohey both from the New York. Times they are Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporters who first broke the story about Harvey Weinstein and his sexual harassment behavior to say the least Jodie and Megan are co authors of the two thousand eighteen book. She said breaking the sexual harassment story. That helped ignite a movement. Jodi Kantor welcome to on point. Glad to be with you so first of all I. Have you been in touch with many of the women who even speaking to over the years in the in the wake of the Weinstein verdict yesterday and if so what have they told you I had? I actually delivered the news. Tash Lee Judd. Yesterday I called her Emmy told her. I just really a few minutes after the guilty verdict. What had happened and she took a second and he just said this is the way it's supposed to be. This is the way it's supposed to be. And then what did? What did she mean by that? What more does she tell you? I think what team anticipated. Harvey Weinstein signature is lack of accountability. This is a man who manipulated people. Who PRESSURED THEM TO SIGN? Nondisclosure AGREEMENTS PAID PEOPLE OFF Often intimidated and threatened people according to numerous sources and former employees and the idea that he is finally facing accountability. I think meant a tremendous amount to different people. Some people felt closer people. Some people felt Satisfaction. But I think when you look at the power of me too. It's really accountability. That's driven the whole thing. The idea that there are consequences for this kind of behavior is what caused other people to come forward in the first place. Jodi you've been following this story for so long now. I wonder what you make. Of the fact that he was found guilty on those on those two counts against him but but not but not all of them. What's what is the the the implications of that. It was a mixed verdict. Which I think is actually pretty symbolic of me to that. It is very hard to resolve these issues in society and remember that the jury was charged with interpreting a lot of complicated questions about consent. This was by no means You know a sort of Straightforward set of allegations. And so. I think I think we as the Society of the lot of these jurors we ask them to go into a room and resolve things that the rest of us have not really worked out And the U. and Megan wrote a story just yesterday for the Times Following the the the verdict. And it you point out your remind us of the two thousand eighteen verdict against bill cosby the Cosby and the Weinstein verdicts taken together. Do you think that we're we're seeing a change in terms of as you're making put it end of story people's acceptance of the quote messy -ness of these kinds of cases and what it takes to prove? What happened in a court of law? That's the question I mean either. To very high profile cases but especially in the Weinstein trial part of the significance of the verdict comes from the fact that this was a really long shot case in a lot of ways. It was risky for the prosecutors. Some fellow prosecutors didn't even think the New York Attorney New York. Da was right to miss soured And so then the fact that they won this victory means that they may have done something to shift andries of sex crimes prosecutions and whose stories get hurt annoy only heavy for another minute or two more. Jodi because I imagine you're still very busy but there is no problem. I just WanNa ask you one last question. I mean as I'm just wondering if I could ask you to step just a hair outside your role as a as a reporter for a moment and just reflect with me on what this moment meant to you and to Megan in terms of all the work that you put in to do the investigations that drove this issue into the public mind. What does the verdict mean to you? Well thank you for asking. That mean when I would say is that the meaning of this work was clear to me from within the very first phone calls to the very first braves women who told us their stories and we did this work without knowing what we would find what we are others would uncover. What the extent of the allegations are now we can see crimes would turn out to be and we hit the way. Yeah whether Weinstein would be prosecuted or not and and and what would result from that prosecution? You do the story just to find the truth. Knowing the journalism may be the only form of count ability that he faces or knowing that it could lead to something more we'll Jodi cantor is the Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter for The New York Times Co author with Megan. Twohey of she said breaking the sexual harassment story. That helped ignite a movement. Jodi thank you very much. Thank you take care.

Explaining Occam's Razor
"Today we're going to discuss a problem solving principle that many of you probably heard of and we've we've definitely referenced on the show before and that is autumn's razor that's right. It's it's one of the classics one of the hits of like the skeptical toolkit and I think it's a really one to get into because it's something that is widely known but in different ways and often To whatever extent it actually does have value. It often gets deployed in ways that do not actually make use of its value right like like an actual razor blade. It may be misused from time to time. Yes now. What one specific place that. I know we've talked about it before. Is that is in the context of Carl? Sagan's recommendations for the the tools of skeptical thinking he these out and one of them is autumn's razor. He writes all comes razor this convenient rule of thumb urges us when faced with two hypotheses that explain the data equally well to choose the simpler. Okay now why did we end up talking about this today? We we were in the studio the other day Discussing upcoming episodes. And you said that. Seth had mentioned this our producer Seth Yeah. I was in here and set a nickel Johnson was working on. A crossword puzzle was at the New York. Times he tells us it was the New York Times And he he asked me how to spell. Autumn is in razor and I took a guess at it and I can't I can't remember. I was correct. I was probably wrong but also probably hit one of the multiple acceptable spell things for razor But anyway we started talking about it and I was like. Oh Yeah we we could do that as an episode and so here we are. I'm very glad we picked this because I think one of my personal favorite genres of of critical thinking is is being skeptical about the tools of skepticism. You know is sometimes people who identify skeptics can ca- can I get a little cocky. You know they get a little too sure of themselves about what the reasoning tools they use and it's worth putting those tools to the test. Giving them a closer look. Yeah absolutely now I have to say I definitely remember. The first time I encountered the concept of outcomes raise or at least the first time I encountered it and it on some level stuck with me and that was when viewed the Nineteen ninety-seven film adaptation of Carl Sagan's novel contact the movie. I can't watch without crying. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah well. Why does it make you cry? Oh God there's no point especially the first part where you know it. Zooms out from the earth and you're hearing the radio signals go back in time and then and then it shows the young. L. E. Airway experimenting with the Ham Radio and her dad's helping her and get so emotional. Yeah Yeah it's it's been a very long I. I haven't seen it since initially came out and in fact the main thing I remember from it is seen in which jodie foster's character. Eleanor Airway has having this conversation with Matthew mcconaughey as character. Who How old was Matthew mcconaughey at this point? I don't even know how old he is. Now is this ageless demon but anyway. Here's this character He's scared Palmer. Joss in the scene in question foster's character brings up autumn's razor in a discussion on the nature of God she. She says well which is ultimately the simpler hypothesis that an all powerful God exists or the human beings made got up in order to feel better about things and then this ultimately comes back around is kind of flipped on her later on film regarding her characters encounter with an extraterrestrial intelligence right. Is it more likely that she really had the experience? She thinks she had with With all these aliens or that. She like hallucinated. Something that would give her emotional closure. Yeah and so. Yeah I think I was in high school at the time so it was. It was interesting concept especially in the context of of atheism verses of faith in a creator deity inserted to suddenly have this tool from the chest. Skeptical thinking just thrown up on the table and you and seemingly used by both sides. Well Yeah I think this is funny. This is a great example because it highlights some of the most common features of all comes razor as it is actually used to like. It's often invoked in a kind of fuzzy way without an objective measure Just kind of invoked to back up your intuitions about the probability of something right but another thing is that this example shows how. It's not always easy to find a way to compare the simplicity of two different propositions like is the existence of God a simple hypothesis or a complicated one that I think that really depends on kind of how you feel about it like like what kind of objective measure can you come up with to evaluate that question right. It's GonNa depend so much on your like your background your culture what you grew up with. And you know how you how you've come to view the possibility of Of God's existence. Is it just kind of the bedrock of your your worldview or is it this thing from the outside that you are contemplating and also how do you view it at like the coherence of the idea? Do you view it as something. That's like That's full of all these little kind of ad hoc accommodations or something that is a holistic coherent Sort of like fact about nature. Yeah you know I it's I I think this is a perfect example. That shows like win. People used the idea volumes razor in a way that is not helpful and doesn't really doesn't really get you any closer to figuring out what's true now if you're if you're still questioning what the concept really means. Don't worry we will get to some. I think some very understandable examples of how it can be a used properly and used improperly. But let's go ahead and just start about the concept itself the the word autumn You know where this comes from. We'll get to the origins of autumn's razor so Oxfam's razor is also known as the principle of parsimony and parsimony means a tendency towards cheapness or frugality. So I like that. It's like the principle of parsimony is like you. You want to be cheap with your with your logic right yeah. I don't need more than two steps of logic between me and the solution. Don't give me one with four or five. And it was named after the Medieval English philosopher William of autumn. Of course William of Arkham So he he lived in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries from twelve eighty five to either thirteen seven or thirteen forty nine. I've seen different death dates given forum. I've seen different birthdates as well. Eighty seven twelve. Eighty eight looking at That's interesting so he was a prolific scholar. Franciscan friar we'll get more into his ideas in a minute. I you know one thing I've always wondered is where the heck is awesome. I've never heard of that. Well yeah because the word sound has kind of like a remoteness to it. It sounds alien in some ways. Autumn is very much a real place. It is a rural village. In Surrey England. You can look it up online. You can find that the website for the church in Oxfam for example and this area has been occupied since ancient times. It's about a day's ride south west of London and it was the birthplace of the individual who'd come to be known as William Volume now beyond that beyond the fact that he was born here. We don't know a lot about William's life We don't know what his social or family background was or if his native language was French or Middle English. As Paul Vincent Spadea explains in the Cambridge companion to Arkham he was likely given over to the Franciscan order as a young boy. Before the age of fourteen and here Latin would have quickly become his language of not only writing but also just conversation Grey Friars Convent in. London was likely his home convent but later he traveled he visited Avalon he visited Italy and he lived the last two decades of his life in Germany. Now philosophically William was a Nominal List and spayed writes that the two main themes of this for William were the rejection of universals and ontological reduction in these two teams are are not necessarily interconnected like you can you. Could you could believe in one but not the other and vice versa but basically like let's get into what these mate so the first rejection of universals is perhaps best considered and this is very brief and broad Certainly you can find so much written in instead on this topic but basically think of it as a rejection of the tonic idea of the realm of forms. So that idea that all chairs that we might make design and carve a symbol are an attempt to create the perfect chair which doesn't reside in our world but only resides within this realm of forms. So all chairs that we create our like an aspiration for the ideal chair another way. I've thought about it at least as I understood it was. The nominalism is kind of the idea that there is no such thing as a chair. There's only this chair and that chair in this chair over here. There is no chair right like this. This is the kind of the situation gets too. When you you get into the genre classifications of say albums artists or movies. You care a great deal about and someone tries to limit it to a classification and say oh well that's classic rock where that's alternative rock near like. No no no no no. Don't don't try and fit there is there. Is these categories. Do not apply. There is there is only you know whatever. Your band of choice happens to be. There is only tool. There is only primis or whatever right there yeah there. There is only things not category right. Now let's move onto the second theme here. Ontological reduction this is as Britannica defines it quote the metaphysical doctrine that entities of a certain kind are in reality collections or combinations of entities of simpler or more basic kind. I think your classic example here is molecules atoms. Yeah so another example. Here's while our aristotle defined ten categories of objects that might be apprehended by a human mind. These would have been translations vary on on how you wanted to find these but substance quantity quality relative place time attitude condition action and affection. William cut these down to two substance and quality. He's really getting in there. That's the razor. That's what a razor Dutt. Cia slices away. It cuts off the fat and gets down to the meat. Spayed writes quote. Although these two strands of thinking are independent. They are nevertheless often viewed as joint effects of a more fundamental. Concern the principle of parsimony known as Oxfam's razor okay. So we're getting to the razor. Yeah so William. Devoted a lot of energy to arguing against What spade calls the bloated onto logical in inventories of his contemporaries and became well known to his peers for this as such either towards the end of his life or shortly after his death a kind of greatest hits album came out on his thoughts and ideas titled On the Principles of Theology? Now it wasn't actually by William of Arkham but it featured his doctrine as well as verbatim quotes there is no ascribed author either so later generations would often just attribute it to him as well as the notion of outcomes razor however the specific phrase was apparently never actually used by him. He never said autumn in the house. I'M GONNA get the razor out and started carving on some some some some some ideas
Two NYT journalists set off to uncover one of the biggest scandals of the decade
"The New York. Times investigations team. Jodi cantor was facing a new challenge. ENJ- for years should reported on workers rights and specifically women's rights companies like Amazon or starbucks. You know I had come to believe. The gender kind of can't open are a for investigative journalism that these stories were not only about women's experiences but because women are often me outsiders at these organizations. If you focused on the women's experiences you could learn a lot about what was really happening inside. It may twenty seventeen and her editor put her onto a new patch. The previous mumps has seen a slew of allegations around powerful men in the public eye allegations of sexual abuse use and harassment about bill cosby or TV anchor. Bill O'Reilly The Times made of sort of all around commitment to sexual harassment reporting and so we decided to look in academia in factories in restaurants in Silicon Valley etc etc but that was a huge patch. Cover so where do you start well for Jodi. It was with a tweet that caught some people's attention a few months early. Ah The tweets was from Hollywood. Actress rose McGowan and in just a few characters artists. It promised away into the story. The tweets was accompanied with the Hashtag. Why women don't report and read as follows? Because it's it's been an open secret in Hollywood slash media and they shame me while agitating rapist. Jody sense who the tweet might be about it. Tallied was something elsewhere somebody had given me a tip about Harvey Weinstein and said the story really needs to be done but we were really starting from nothing. We a new only rumors had no idea whether they will real or not so subtle at her desk in New York. Jody stead her computer screen. She was not a celebrity gossip tip columnist. She didn't have any connections with anyone in this world. And it's not exactly an easy universe to wonder into. I didn't know any actresses you normally emily when you're trying to get in touch with the famous person. You call their publicist or their agent. But we did not want to do that. Because with all due respect to this people they're gatekeepers and we thought they would just shut us down and a few people Jodi did manage to talk to didn't exactly fill her confidence that there was even a story here. Harvey Weinstein Though A well-known in the industry wasn't exactly a household name people had heard of his films and his company but not that many people would have been able to point him out in the crowd and Jodi kept hearing the same thing. There were some very condescending Hollywood sources who lectured us and they say things like oh Jodi the casting couch which is just a part of Hollywood and it's been that way from the beginning. It's a very unfortunate part of our industry but it's just not changeable and look you're never get your little story but if you do nobody will care. Feeling a bit stuck Jodi went to her editors they had an idea another reporter who face similar roadblocks alien her reporting give mecanical. They suggested so Jodie and I didn't really know each other She had been at the times for much longer than I had. And she was wondering what to say when you as a reporter when you do get a woman on the phone who you suspect has been a victim of of sexual harassment or assault. What you say in those first thirty seconds to try to keep them on the phone but you know I basically tapped into some of the experiences dances that I had had in that reporting which was to say? I can't change what's happened to you in the past but if we work together we're able to publish the truth. We might be able to protect other other people. We might be able to use your private pain towards some sort of constructive purpose. Meghan put the phone down but couldn't stop thinking about a work. Jody was doing so when she returned to the office after her maternity leave. She knew exactly what she wanted to do. I quickly ended up becoming her partner on the

"Technology better sanitation higher. IQ's less child mortality fewer deaths from conflict fewer fewer homicides and have seen a reduction in overall crime figures and so you know with all of this progress you think how can it be that evil would think that the world is more dangerous. It's now today than it was seventy years ago and you know you have to think well. Where does she get most of her information from because eve is not an uninformed person then you know she's incredibly bright. Well educated in terms of her information stream that she has you know she chains in regularly to the news so she's what educated on on on sort of current affairs and issues that we're we're told about so she's not actually uninformed what she is is incredibly ill-informed informed you know she has an incorrect perception of the world because like. I mentioned the pace at which the nearest has accelerated and they focused predominantly on the negativity and what this does is it makes us think that these problems are accelerating so it gives us the impression that the world is he's getting. West and the potential for it to become a catastrophic is always on the edge because we're told of all these completely unresolved resolved and powerful problems with facing regularly and that was a real moment that I ha- I kind of thought you know this.

Let's let's scale this conversation. Let's see how many people we can talk to about this is that she awesome her name's Jodie Jackson and she this is her book. The book is called. You are what you read is about how the psychological emotional effects of the media what they're doing to you and you probably don't even know I'm telling you. You don't know you think you know but you don't know okay. She's she's Giggling at me all the way from London England because of my passion about that's because I am so passionate about people really coming to understand that you don't really know what the news media is doing to you in how it is influencing you but she's written.
