A Tennis Star Catches COVID-19
"Welcome the no challenges remaining. It is Sunday. June twenty first twenty, twenty I am Ben Rothenberg I was working on posting are editing an episode that I recorded a couple days ago with buddies and frequent guests, this show remobilize into all and Louisa Thomas also this episode for the beginning of it. round table talking about the open their plans etcetera etcetera. Then a couple less than an hour ago, there was a posted popped up. I think I dream and remained Toumani. Join me again hello. Hello. Irene was the first one is. If I saw a post, this poster came up on your instagram feed, and can you describe what you saw instagram? Basically posted a photo of himself with a mask, announcing that he is back in Monaco and tested positive for covid nineteen an he apologized for possibly endangering others so yeah, it was him basically disclosing that he has positive, and as we know agree, gorgeous got back from Croatia where he was playing in the Adria tour and a couple of days before that he was playing in Belgrade as well, so he's playing Novak store, and yeah, and we mentioned that obviously on the podcast we recorded two days ago. I it it should be noted that we've seen many patriots of Griego over the past couple of weeks. But that's the first pitcher. We've seen what I'm wearing a mosque. Stu Point to money no I think. Yeah, so this is sort of tenses. Thing hopefully it get to a Rudy Gobert moment in tennis where Gregoire realized I have nothing fallen close attention, paying close attention to the Adria tour, but grew on court yesterday a Saturday in Croatia playing a match inside our Croatia as part of this Adria series traveling around the Balkans he was in. Serbia and we talked about this. A bunch on the show and I think I will probably still. Post the show recorded before, but I feel like this will change the tenor of its I want to post these. Get this one up I throw show that we are connected to reality more than maybe the other episode from two days ago because I think as Louisa, early people say on the show like. In these times a lock change short period of time, this is obviously a big moment for tennis. One that I think it's fair to say that we all feared was very possible with looking at Adria series, which is exhibition event sort of started by Novak Djokovic determined director. Quote Unquote was Georgia Djokovic of ex brother. It was being held in Belgrade and a few other planned stops around the Balkans They just actually after the news of Dmitrov positive test. They just can't sold the final match of today's session in. Montenegro which was supposed to host next weekend had already said thanks, but no thanks to Adria tour canceled their leg of the event. We sort of imagined Asia tour, which was an event. Whichever one you twenty? How about you described? He described what what we saw because he posted a bunch of photos. From recent days what Adrian Tour Bend like the got people concerned something this. Business was sending. The optics are not good. Let's put it charitably that way. Yes essentially what we've seen is What is a very regular event in very abnormal times you know? Whether it's you look on twitter on on streams on on Youtube big crowds in the stadium at Novak's Club scene players. And hands and invading each other's personal space and Interacting with fans you've seen videos of. Them are on the out in a club stripping together. and. Will these images that would be normal in normal times, but these aren't normal times, and it makes you cringe a bit. And so there there there's been tons of criticism and. Of course. Rich kind of. Received a lot of criticism for an we actually spoke. To US ball. And he said kind of that. He's aware of the criticism from the West. But you know what while things may be bad in the UK or the, us, it's not. It's not the same in Serbia. And, yeah, and for that reason you know people have been kind of reacting to that and reacting badly, and that's kind of where we. Can I add? They also had a kids day. That had a lot of kids. We've seen the photo of that as well and they've had a football match, and they've had a basketball match in Croatia. They went to a concert with Donovan John August the new version others the other day, and the thing is you have players who came from countries. Who aren't Serbia and Croatia in that? You have you have players someone like Gregoire? Who flew from the states, then winces Bulgaria, possibly also to Monaco. You also have such as Vera. Vera who's traveling from different places Sasha's also saddlebrook for quite a big portion of the quarantine time you have people traveling from different places, and they got off the plane, and you see the video of them getting off the plane and immediately hugging Novak, and immediately being welcomed people into walking around the no masks I don't understand how you can get a flight and already know that that person that person didn't have time to get tested, so that already was

#PayUpHollywood Attempting To Change Pay And Working Conditions For Entertainment Industry Assistants
"Assistance in the entertainment industry are overworked underpaid and and often have to run personal errands for their bosses even after they leave for the day. That's according to a new survey of more than fifteen hundred assistance. It was released this this week by the grassroots movement called pay up Hollywood. The campaign started as a twitter Hashtag back in October and has been gaining momentum since then Katie kilkenny is an associate editor at the Hollywood reporter where she covers labor and she explains how the Hashtag grew out of an episode of script notes. A podcast asked about screenwriting. A assistant wrote in saying you know I think one of the big issues. That's going to be coming forward in the next few decades in Hollywood is that we're gonna I have to talk about the low pay. That assistance are facing in how that is related to rising cost of living in Los Angeles and from near the hosts which cacus Craig Mason. Who are both really powerful writers in Hollywood? Read that note and ask for more people to talk about their stories of being an assistant in Los Angeles they just got an overwhelming matic. Email and a writer named Alber who is on the board at the Writers Guild of America started Hashtag called Hashtag Champ. Hollywood so a couple of days before Thanksgiving script notes facilitated a pay up Hollywood town hall where assistance had a chance to talk about some of the issues. And here's what one woman who didn't provide. Her name had to say about burnout. We almost have like three jobs at once. Like not only. Are we working our day. The job for forty to sixty hours a week and not making enough and then therefore doing work on the side like babysitting driving etc but we also have the work of our own careers. I and I think that is what leads that burnout. Because we're not only expected to have this day job that puts all these things in place for us to move forward and then on top of that we're expected to have like an hour to write a day or or to fund their own short films and make them on the weekends like that is just like impossible. I think impossible's inaccurate word word for what she's describing. What some of the other issues that came up around the Hashtag and around the town hall so I think a big one is the question of access? Hollywood has been talking talking a lot about its diversity issues wanting to get more folks into the pipeline of diverse backgrounds. But what we're looking at. Here's the situation where you have to to be able to afford to be an assistant in the first place to get that first leg up in the industry and so Paige Hollywood has just released a survey of one thousand thousand five hundred fifty one assistance and they found that seventy percent of the people who were surveyed were white and that fifty two percent were receiving financial -sential aid from family and friends to make ends meet as they were assistance in Hollywood. So I think we're seeing that this industry in order to diversify does have to become more accessible or economically manically accessible to folks who aren't coming in with with that aid so that to me was notable as well as the fact that a lot of assistance were also talking thing about this sort of demeaning conditions that were expected of them. Hollywood has pay your dues culture and I think a lot of folks remember at its in difficult conditions when they or assistance and so sort of expect. There is a lot to go through that as well. But in the survey it showed that one hundred and four respondents had an object thrown at them in the workplace. So I think that we're looking at conditions assistance or not only being pretty badly paid but also they are facing conditions that are pretty rough. We're talking with Katie kilkenny at the Hollywood reporter about pay up. Hollywood there are other things that really jumped out to me. One is that almost ninety three percent of those. The people surveyed said they work more than forty hours a week and fifteen percent said they were working more than sixty hours a week and hero's something that was really troubling. Almost almost a quarter said that they had reported an increase in substance abuse. So it sounds like the job is really taking a terrible terrible toll on the people who are in this line of work completely. I mean I think these numbers sort of show something that assistance have been talking to each other about for a long time and so I think for a lot of this is not a surprise but this survey really shines a light on some of these issues and the fact that things need to change and it sounds like some show runners are actually saying this is unsustainable and maybe even immoral absolutely so I talked to a few folks. We'd been vocal on twitter with their support and basically found out talking to them that they were advocating for higher wages on projects that they're currently developing and these are Adam conifer who Folks might know true. TV's Adam Ruins everything. David H Steinberg. who was a CO show runner? Netflix is no good nick. And the writer producer producer Creator Ayelet Waldman who was an executive producer on Netflix. Unbelievable Waldman in particular told me that she was trying to get her assistance twenty dollars an hour plus benefits and hover was saying that he was trying to just various aspects of the job to make it more. Tenable you said in your story Lori that you had reached out to the major studios and talent agencies for comment and let's just say they weren't flooding the phone lines calling back. have any of them. Had anything anything to say. One Agency is doing something and they didn't provide comment for the story. But you know I heard via sources that for which is the talent agency that represents spoke John August who helped movement as well as Liz Alpert who coined. The HASHTAG has conducted in anonymous pace survey of their assistance. And and I will also be receiving and looking at the results of the pay up Hollywood survey and I imagine that in weeks to come others will speak up more but for now they our remaining mum and even if the hours are horrible. The working conditions aren't great. A lot of people want these jobs right because it's so hard hard to get into the business and this is one possible path for people who want to become creative people in Hollywood definitely. They're extremely competitive jobs and often a line that is used with assistance to speak up about work. Conditions is that you know there were thousands. That will take place but it's gotten to the point where the wages are the same as they were twenty years ago in some cases That's what we're hearing from. These stories while the cost of living in Los Angeles has skyrocketed. And so these assistance missiles argument is that the situation is untenable at the slain. Katie Kilkenny is an associate editor at the Hollywood reporter. Katie thanks so much for coming on the show as much for having me

So I just wanted to let you if I'm bringing if I'm bringing a Logie energy today, bringing a full kind of sleepy energy to fully cakes, you're not gotten a cub rush to. I would have thought that you'd be having a car brush. Let's car brush a carb carb rush. No, carbs. No, I Hora car car if your car's dusty. That's true. Yeah. No, I think I maybe had that in the car on the way over. Bounced around turnabout some heart. Got it. But now full carb crash, should we introduce our guests Jordan before you go into a coma? Yeah, they are the co-hosts of the smash podcast. Script notes, everyone here in Hollywood is familiar with it Jordan and I work in the entertainment industry. So we know a lot about script the script notes podcast, and they are also of profoundly accomplished screenwriters themselves. And in one case, a screenwriter turned novelist. Yeah, that's right. He's got his own novels. That's Craig Mazin and John August I got, hey low. It's nice to be here that was fascinating to watch and listen to you. You guys were up close up close and just shocked. I gotta tell you shocked. Hypo. Listen to this. No, no, not all the parts of the podcast. We would normally cut out. Right? Are featured here. Exactly. But did take copious notes on Jordan's of MRs. Simpson's about pancakes that all pancakes. Same as the parent of a kid. I can tell you that all pancakes are the same. Let's hear about this. All right. There are good pancakes that my daughter will eat. There are terrible pancakes. My daughter will eat, but they're also good pancakes. My daughter will not eat because she's so incredibly picky. So how old is your daughter dollars now? Thirteen years old. And so our usual Saturday morning is to blue jam cafe, which is one of the best breakfast spots in the world. So great job. And so the crunchy French toast is what you get there at blue jam, but they used to have pancakes and they stopped serving pancakes because I'm sorry, I, I, I think my something might be wrong with my headphones. Yes, I thought you said that this was one of the best breakfast places. Yes. Is it test breath my world by the way this except they stopped serving pancakes because it is extra grill space to make more of their crunchy French toast, which is what they're known for. Sure. And because Japanese tourists come expecting the country, so they stopped serving pancakes. My daughter's stopped giving up in the mornings on Saturday mornings because pancakes are not available. So now we get her Jack in the box pancake. Mini pancakes on the way back and she prefers them to any other pancakes. This may be more about your daughter than about pancakes. I have to be honest with pancakes. I think you're right. Thank you for your frankness. Correct. That's all I have to offer by the way and it's not going to go well for you guys. So pigs, I think pancakes are just basically sponges for other things the end of themselves. They're not particularly great. Yeah, they're sponges for butter and precisely, but that's wonderful. Or make best truths you make pancakes at home? No, because pancakes can be delicious, made it home, but it can also be terrible their best. A pancake bear is just sort of a warm spongy thing. I have to admit something here. You've never had a pancake. I'm I, frankly, unfamiliar with them, never heard of them..

"The description tax shows like you now is a fight over the title and like there's another book with the same on some title and are a similar title and so apply lose the name arlow finch and that's a moment that happened and like we have tape on it but it also was not that interesting and so the episode is about that at all and so there's no reference to that whole titlefight at all in the episode so that's the case where like a year ago when i was thinking like i'll what were the third episode be that's where i thought that their episode it'd be but now that we were hearing repreentatives altogether is like oh it's much better for us to just be talking about the cover of talking about the blurb talking about sort of the the nittygritty details rather than being that almost happened that didn't happen so there's a lot of those little bits of tape and there's you know a moment that i thought were going to be crucial things that aren't crucial things in the end to sing yeah i'm i'm look and looking at the description right now i hadn't noticed i listen to half of this this morning and for our listeners we're we're recording as the day that episode three launched in it's it's fairly early in the morning so we're playing a lot of catch up today but you you really did create something that in the podcast space to me anyway feels very unique and an intriguing and i know that is loosely based on up which is a alex bloomberg launching gimlett which is a podcast network there's also uh you know some kovacs to a lot of other shows that are out there but i mean this this really does feel like something that is very much its own and i think you may have spurred uh a lot more shows that are kind of going to to be similar to this in terms of like starting a journey and then following the crater on that journey apps yes a i hope side a it's a really interesting form that sense of it out its journalists journalistic discovery but also the person in it's like a first person discovery show so i wouldn't be surprised if is more those down the road.
