Steven Spielberg has pulled out of the new Indiana Jones. Movie which is supposed to start filming this summer. Stephen Bill Burr pulled out of the French Academy Awards after Polanski wanted. I mean play. This polaski causes stir clip interesting. I had a different take on it but good. They're announed French film awards. This is ours held or forty fifth ceremony on Friday evening but they took a dramatic turn when convicted child rapist. Roman Polanski won the award for best director actress. Adelle and L. A. Figurehead of Francis. Metoo movement stormed out of the hall shouting shame while she was followed by a few others. A couple hundred. Protesters rallied outside the venue. Before the event started calling out the choice to celebrate Polanski's work one activist said that supporting the director's work stopped victims from coming forward. Polinsky said this was a public lynching but he was convicted of raping a thirteen year. Old Girl in the US in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven. He pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and fled the country on the eve of his sentencing. He's faced multiple accusations of rape. Since then this is the fifth time. Polanski has won best director at this as ours but this time the academy resigned on mass two weeks ago the whole board. If the awards stepped down a general meeting will soon be held to elect a new board which the academy says will work to implement reforms in modernization. Oh this is interesting because it plays into what I was going to inform you of is that Spielberg pulling out of the new Indiana Jones. Movies big deal moreover because it is a Disney film and so we have apparently some very old audio and video tapes of casting that Spielberg was doing asking very inappropriate questions of child actors. Remember Bob Eiger just resigned from Disney's a lot of pedo stuff circling around some smells bad.

They had a tiff. This whole trader. Joe Was a Hashtag are traded. You love your place man. Has it had anything to do with own? Well Oh well twitter. The story on another underplayed story that nobody's talking about but is is a jam. Because you know I think if it wasn't for for Corona viruses would have been played up a little bit. China Olympic doping scandal like the Russians. Oh Boy China's three time Olympic gold medalist Sun Yang expressed his shock of being handed. An eight ban on Friday for dope test violation the rule. Tim Out of the Tokyo Games said he would immediately appeal the decision the Court of Arbitration for Sport early accepted an appeal from the world. Anti Doping Agency against indecision swimming's governing body to clear son of wrongdoing for his conduct during a two thousand eighteen test. Cast said the ban was imposed because the twenty eight year old already had an early anti-doping rule violation against him. Some expresses anger at the decision. Saying in a statement. I firmly believe in my innocence. Belief that facts must overcome lies. The Chinese swimmer is the reigning World Olympic champion in two hundred meters freestyle and won two gold medals in two thousand twelve and another in two thousand sixteen but is also a controversial figure in the sport at the Rio Games. Australian rival. Mac. Horton accused him of being a drug teat and refused to share a podium with Sun At Large Swell Championship whilst the appeal hung him as did British. Women Duncan Scott. He wants two hundred meters freestyle. Bronze Cast ruled that sons world championship results should remain because he passed debut control before and after the twenty eighteen tests when his entourage smashed vials containing blood samples taken out of competition. The Chinese Swimming Association said it deeply regretted rolling and support a son in defending his interest. You know I'm sure. This is not being reported Chinese own so much media I mean. Do you know that they own fifteen percent of read it? No but why am I not surprised? Yeah well that explains every that's explain why they're getting rid of the trump forums or whatever the donald or whatever it is it explains what is. Dick on our read. It is Chinese. Who hate us? Think Brill maybe. It wouldn't surprise me last story. I WANNA play as the new trump has gone back to Radcliffe irs as head of the deny deny deny department. National Tellers. Whatever it's called and of course they're making a story out of fuss about it every the mainstream media because they don't like trump picks the guys no good list this player so he can catch up. Yeah I'm just not sure I'll haunt show. That's what I wanted. The president trump to praise John Radcliffe his pick once again to be the nation's top spy. All right the guy he he cut out because it was there were coming up with some oppo research on him that he had inflated his academic career or something. I eat but at some bullshit or something. That wasn't necessary. Took some time to go erase the problem. Catherine Herridge A. Report a controversial choice to lead the nations seventeen intelligence agencies in his first television interview since the announcement. Texas Congressman Republican. John Ratcliffe push back against charges. He's not qualified to lead the intelligence agencies handling national security issues as far back as two thousand five but critics say you've never held a job in the intelligence community. I think what we've seen. Is that some of our most experienced. Intelligence officials have gotten the wrong with respect to important issues. I want you to respond to critics who say president trump puts loyalty ahead of experience my experience as a US attorney on national security issues as a legislator almost exclusively in these areas that was important him. Loyalty what we've talked about is my loyalty to. The constitution was a passionate defender of the president during the Russia. Probe more recently impeachment. He was among the first to fly. Irregularities in the surveillance of trump campaign aide. I've had a very public role and I've demonstrated that I've been right on some of these most important issues. Rank live was tap last summer for the job but it was withdrawn after allegations. He padded his resume. What's changed my reconsidered. Because the president asked me and I think when the president asks you to do something for your country you look at that just because someone in your business accuses. You doesn't make it true. The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Adam Schiff called him unqualified. Can you get through the confirmation process? I think that I'll have the support of all Republicans at the end of the day.

Discern mea is the guy who we heard earlier say this the first thing, I do when I know I'm going somewheres get on internet and find where the closest trader Joe's is and will hear from a spy in the house of trader Joe's, a former advertising executive named Mark gardener who became obsessed with the chain. And I had this thought like, you know, what if I just went and work fare? What would I learn about this company?.

"I'm Tara Miller. The director of words, and phrases and causes. And I'm manslaughter in the marketing product guy this episode is titled around the world in eighty trader Joe's products give or take at traderjoes. Our crew goes just about everywhere, literally circumnavigating the globe on a weekly basis to satiate your unrelenting desire for new food discoveries. You may think that's overly dramatic. But it's not hyperbolic. Our crew does have their fair share of adventures from around the world or around the corner as they searched for new products and on this episode. We'll ask them to tell you some of their better stories at trader Joe's. We really do. Discover cultures of the world through food. When Joe Colom was really sort of shaping the idea that would become trader Joe's, it was within the context of people are gonna start flying around the world and seeing new things and eating new things and tasting tastes that they want to be able to taste when they're back home. You may have been in France and had this terrific cheese. But you may not have made it to the Republic of Georgia and had these really interesting dumplings that makes me want to travel even more. So we're talking to Arlene and Jenny who are product innovators here at trader Joe's are essentially the boots on the ground. We travel the world, and we find the wildfire customers you kind of have the coolest job in the world. Yeah. Find I feel very blessed. Very blessed. Everyone tells me that the media reaction is that is so cool. You don't get. Why did you discontinue jasmine green tea? That's what I the second. Yeah. Yeah. One of the best part is constantly experiencing. Nut sense of discovery. Like having something for the first time or seeing something for the first time like I really value experiences. And I mean, that's that's what I want for customers. Product innovation. Sounds like a fancy way to describe the treasure hunt. Like going into a trader Joe's and finding something that you never knew existed. And all of a sudden, it just might become your new favorite thing. We travel the world we try to. Find things in different corners of the world that people can't get to. Yeah. It's it's go go go. How many countries have you visited do, you know? Can you give me a ballpark since the past two years? Goodness. Maybe like fifteen to twenty at. I don't know. It's like so many every time I put a list together. I'm like, wow. All over Europe. Italy, Germany, France, Greece New Zealand Japan, Thailand, Mexico, actually, one of my friend's dad every time I see him. He loves us. So where to go and some lines of work. They would they would discover the culture through music or through art. And we discovered the culture of through the food. What is what's your favorite trip that you've been on from a product development standpoint, there's a couple, but I would say one that is the most recent is Republic of Georgia. The what was really interesting to me is that the us tons of wild herbs, and they have tons of. Dips, and you know, we love dip since so I thought dot translated pretty well. They have dumplings. So dumplings like perogie or dumplings more like a typical Asian dumpling. They literally looked like the soup dumplings like the Chinese soup dumplings, but they're huge. They're like, maybe like half of your hand. And how you need it. You flip it over and take a little bit of nib in suck all the soup out and slowly finish it, and you can toss the knob because it's can be a little bit doughy or people like it if they like chewy texture and they're filled with meat. Yes. So they're they're traditionally filled with me, I think be four like beef and lamb or just lamb but nowadays, you can find mushrooms vegetables cheese potatoes, like all sorts of different fillings, Jenny. You recently went to New Zealand any products that you that came in from that experience..

"Lining, bird cages near you. It's fearless. So Tara, what is the fearless flyer? Fearless fire is trader Joe's main way of talking to our customers. We call ourselves a store of stories, and the fearless flyer is that idea made manifest on paper, but it's it's a specific set of stories, right? Rather than just show people a product and a price, like traditional grocery store circular would do we tell stories about our products. We, we talked to the people who've developed our products. We want you to know a little bit about what's in it. We want you to know a little bit about what it tastes like. What a great value it is. So we tell you the price, the usual grocery playbook says item price or Bogo for you. Jargon fans out there by one get one. None of that. It's a lot of words. It's a lot of words, but their words that that have a look like you can spot it at fifty paces. And why does it look like a regionally? It looked like that because it was the least expensive way to put something on paper. So our founder Joe Colom would type it on a typewriter and make mimeographed copies. Fearless flyer. All those years, the average it was for crew members was intended to give information about products, physically wines to crew members. It was called the insiders report, and he started doing that in nineteen seventy. And customers got wind that this was happening and said, hey, I wanna see that. I want to know about that wine. I wanna know what that's all about the cartoons that are in the flyer. You know, it's got these old timey Victorian era, art pieces. We put in the car tubes. Don't goddamn Suri Asli. They were Moyle ty- free and Joe didn't want to have to pay anyone to create art to put in it and didn't want to have to put pictures of products in it because that was expensive to these old engravings. It was absolutely out of necessity to NAS, spend money on it, and it became over time a look across between mad magazine and consumer reports. The initial cartoon image on the flyer was of someone who looked like he was flying and I don't know if you look fearless or terrified, but terrified flyer probably wouldn't have worked very well at the name. So you know. Fearless fearless. It was and fearless. It is. Is there any option for like a paid placement? Can someone biased spot in this? No, it's it's. It's it's not an option. There's that's just not part of how we do our business. We put things in the flyer that we think are interesting, and hopefully our customers agreed that they're interesting. Curtis marketing director, tater. Why do you shop the trader? I shop the trader Joe's because I love the products. I love the staff. I love how helpful they are friendly. They are, and I love to sample their food. Do you sample products from the demo? Absolutely. And I get a lot of ideas for for dinner and for lunches for my voice. So what a lot of people might not know is the biggest marketing expense we have at trader Joe's is actually just letting people try our food today. We're with angel at the demo station in our east Pasadena, California store what's for lunch angel today we've got a little beef brisket. This is the corn beef brisket on rye bread with mustard little cabbage and Swiss cheese. So you don't just put out the food, you actually make things that customers could make it home?

I've got it tasty sample for you here. You're very welcome to try guys. Please have a taste. So. I'm so. Good afternoon. This. Are you. This is sexually little sandwich made with our corn.
