"Into thirty three minutes twenty two seconds. Get it passed through the muster HBO legal in a week in a week. Can you break down the process? It's not a normal process It's very rare only occasionally in the seventy S. it'd be doing show. Have we crashed his show in a week that as the show in its entirety? Did Post election two thousand sixteen. We did post the The cavenaugh hearings and Now I think I think that might be it when we've just done a whole show from start to finish about something and. I. It was really an all staff effort. So, people were putting thoughts into emails. We were. It was all hands to the pump in terms of researchers and footage producers. We're splitting the story up talking to experts as fast and as deeply as we could. And then trying to collect that into something that felt useful. I think for us. If fellow what we can get at was context to the conversation being take place a week. A more context is very easy to say. Ensure hand. There was a history of. Racism in policing in America and it dude, saying one does not mean is not true showing it in long hand, it kind of helps, and then we'd seen not amazing clip of Kimberly Jones the the author, and it really felt like the best thing that we could do because I'm not sure extent to hitch. It's particularly helpful to have. Come from a white man What we were saying. If, felt the most important thing that we could do was give Kimberly Jones thirty three minutes of setup. Basically, so you so you? You understood as she starts talking what she's talking about an in ninety seconds. She said it better than I could in thirty two minutes. I mean you delivery. In that thirty two minutes, one of our listeners just in SONA. Could you style delivery the geoghegan pressing of news reporting? When I watched Sunday night show have watched three times. Thought about you making it all we. The content was search. As such terribly dark and composing terrain for America a place. That we we both love deeply, and I wondered as you made it. Whether, what Nietzsche said was true. When you stare into the abyss, does the abyss stare back at Jim? It's. I will say it was I was A. Monumental effort from our entire staff. And so normally how a feel at the end of that is! You feel a sense of real community because I don't know situation, a bean with my staff, physically weak, or we can see what we're going through it collectively. And you can kind of gauge each other's mood, then albeit in front of an audience and my crew, and will kind of get a sense of like Whoa Whoa. Emotional Ward is you're trying to traverse. One is very strange is being isolated at this time. That was that was what made it particularly difficult because always just alone in this room. Basically. Speed talking to a camera with no sense of any kind of human response, even when audiences silent, you can get a sense of what feeling you know. What Will content is inside that silence it was. Difficult! To gauge whether. Anything was helpful to be honest. I was. I was very relieved that people found it useful. I think it slightly I can understand it being infuriating that. Some of the things that people have been saying for decades. Being listened to. Man said it I mean you just can't all. Dodge the fact. That is kind of embodies part of the problem. We're into so much of what I learned I learned from white snacks. Show problem areas amazing. It was really great. It was a great show on long-form comedy wildly ambitious. Dough voting a ten episode series, and he's a great listener, so he he was really really good at. giving. People who are making? Significant. Efforts on the local level giving them a voice and kind of thing. Light on what they were doing. It was brilliant. Brilliant show and I wish people watched it and honestly I. Wish people watching it more now. It's on Youtube right now, and I cannot recommend a find it. Find it, and devour is remarkable it is it is genuinely a remarkable piece of television more poignant now even definitely unfolds slowly in a helpful way, because you kind of see on the on a micro level. What can be done? He did win the when it finished whether you would do that and one of thrills of my wheat. When you finish your show, you do that Giddy. That'll journal of a beating on. Wondering what he did. Is. He mentally pictured you more like crusty. The clown when the cameras go off just trudging sadly off in the corner. But you want a remarkable man over the past seven seasons last week tonight has grappled with some of the darkest issues, not descend the nation, but in the world, and put that show together I. Often Mentally Picture you on your hands and knees constantly stirring the swell of humanity I want solid shape. How would you cope with all that darkness? John and you didn't have to wait you beat you, said football football is my escape Liverpool. Definitely I mean that's. That's the thing. I guess as a person you are. Biologically engineered to crystallize darkness. Push it down and hopefully into a diamond. Everson football. Issue Diamond. Have you without that diamond without escape. You know it's interesting. Interesting point because I think one of the reasons. Why were able to focus so much on systemic problems? Right now is the the. Kind of. Distractions that we're all accustomed to on. The kind of thing that will lift you from moment alcohol. Confronting. Deep societal issues is sitting and watching baseball, game or football, game or hockey game or you know.

The PODS Container Has Gone!

Young House Love Has A Podcast

The PODS Container Has Gone!

"Well we started last week's episode with our pods container just having gotten delivered and we started this week with it just having been picked up. Yeah it was a momentous thing to see it. Roll out be well. God's all the things I love yes it was a little bit more nerve racking than I expected it to be because we have used a pod before when we had our floors refinished and this house just downstairs so we had to move all the furniture and our first floor out of the House and we put it in a pod in the driveway. But you know that didn't have to go anywhere. It didn't get transported on a truck states away to new place to be dropped down. It just sat still rate. You know what I'm realizing right now. We have never not been with the stuff that we've moved ever in our whole lives. Yeah every other move. We've done up to this. Point has been basically a local move between places in Richmond apart from moving from New York here fourteen years ago but minivan van me and John Oliver Steph. It is the first time in a while that we've made an interstate move and so when we moved from our first house to our second house and then later to our current house. Our Third House here in Richmond like those are all within miles of each other and we did like just little trips like packing the car with stuff one day coming back the next afternoon like it was really easy. I think we took one truck for each move like we did. Use A u-haul rented truck for just like an afternoon like it was not a big deal right and that's how we also furnish the duplex and the beach us. We rented a U haul. Once put our stuff in it but we've always been like the driver of our things and it's not that I think we have any mistrust in pods driving. It itself is just a funny feeling to watch all of your possessions leave. You like going ahead of you and we are here and what. I have dubbed pod Purgatory. Because as we wait for the PIE to make its way to Florida over two weeks. We can't get there. The House isn't ready for US ANYWAY. And we wouldn't have any of her stuff so we just kind of hang out of the. House for two weeks wait for the pods to land and then in two weeks we do the journey. That pot is doing ahead of us. Yes our timeline. Right now is that we are hoping to make the move to Florida sometime. The first week of May because that's when the pod is scheduled to arrive there. That's when our contractor says. It should be ready for us to come move our stuff in and so that starting to feel like the week things are GonNa Happen. I'm knocking on all the wood because everything seems to be up in the air these days but I think that two week window is another thing. We didn't really wrap our heads around until recently because again having only done local moves before it's always been this kind of like a gradual process into the new house. Where if we forgot something at the old house we could like run back and get it. But that's not really an option here like we have to be much more organized and basically just have one shot at getting everything packed between the pod. That's going down and then we can fit in our car when we actually go down the first week of May. Yeah so what remains in our houses just like you know the linens on the beds that were still sleeping in because we did sell the beds to the new owners along with about fifty percent of our stuff because that house being less than half the size of this house means we certainly would be not smart debris one hundred percent of the seven this house because it would have nowhere to land in Florida. Yes there's a lot of stuff here. I mean I should point out. We're also fortunate that because we sold so much to the new owners that it's still fairly comfortable here while we wait out these two weeks before we can go because like Sherry said. We'VE GOT BEDS. We have a TV. We have a couch upstairs. Bonus Room so like apart from having the discomfort of like not having all of our kitchen stuff and not all of our close like. We basically packed a suitcase that we're living out for two weeks. Yeah but it's really not bad and then you know what the cool thing has been as we've shared this stuff. We're sharing a lot of stuff as we've gone in stories so if you ever want like real day to day stuff that's where to follow us but as we share it we've heard from so many people who've done these big moves even those who are you know in the military or who have done these like international moves to other countries and they have said it's fairly standard to be without your stuff for a while. Sometimes two weeks sometimes even four weeks and so a lot of people said. We do folding chairs. We do air mattresses. We do like basically camping as a way to make your food. You One pan and you have a hot pot and all this stuff. I think we really are lamping. We have four burner stove like this. House has all the appliances still. We have our beds but we do have fully empty rooms some pictures in the show notes of some rooms. This house vacant and some rooms like our entire dining room remains our entire bonus room still here except for one table that we took. Actually I think this week on the blog post a video tour our house in two stages so one will be how it looked when we sold it. So like right before the showings happened and everything was cleaned and in its perfect spot. We took video. I haven't watched it yet so hopefully it's good but that will give you a sense of what the house looked like at its finished state and then we're going to try to shoot a video this week of what it looks like now. That has been packed up. I think that will answer a lot of questions for people who are wondering. Like what exactly did you leave? What did you take so you'll be able to see the contrast between those two things so that should be on the blog this

Launching Patients over Profits

"Have some exciting stuff to talk about this week. Most exciting top of the list is that there's a new massive national medicare for all campaign that was launched just this last week Ourselves healthcare now part of a coalition That's going to roll out this campaign it's being led by national nurses United And it has called the patients over prophets pledge So Stephanie Before we get into the details like nuts and bolts of what this campaign is GonNa look like This is a campaign that is targeting. Legislators so they will not take money from the healthcare industry. Why is that important like at this particular stage movement right so as we expected as our movement is taking off there's momentum in Congress and at the grassroots level our opposition has taken noticed and they have organized? They've convened a new organization The Partnership for America's healthcare future may have heard of it which is comprised of bad guys like health insurers members of Pharma hospitals and everybody else who has something to lose shows of commerce single the most exactly So now we have this like mega villain. This transformer of multiple villains Who have have convened this new partnership and they are spending a lot of money. For example on ads on industry aligned speakers on ghost writing op eds for members of Congress and other legislators and employing lobbyists to spread their talking points Why don't we go ahead and listen to to a short clip of an ad? This is like a prime example of what they are running around. The country. Politicians are pushing one-size-fits-all health. Plans Medicare for all Medicare buy buy in in and and public public option. option. All All mean mean the the same same thing. thing. You'd You'd pay pay more more to to wait wait longer longer for for worse worse care. care. So they're doing stuff like this and of course they're also donating millions to our elected officials. So how are we going to take on this new mega opposition that has launched with the express purpose of taking down? Medicare for all So any new has come up with this patients over. Prophets pledge. Ben. Can you tell us a little more about it? Yeah so it's pretty straightforward basically We're going to be asking a legislators Elected officials but especially members of Congress to not accept money from any arm of the healthcare industry. That is part of the Partnership for America's healthcare future any wing of the healthcare industry. That is trying to undermine Medicare for all trying to prevent us from getting the healthcare. We need We want to drive a wedge between this partnership of this empire of evil. Who's trying to stop us from getting our health care and the legislators who were supposed to be representing us. I'll remind you just normal constituents patients so here's a little clip from Max Cotterell of National Nurses United on a national call that they hosted to launch this campaign. The patients over profits pledge is linked to aim to sever those direct ties that corporations actively involved in fighting Medicare for all have been carefully building with politicians across the country. And so in this fight to pass Medicare for all what we know is that will never be able to outspend the for profit industry but we can make the active accepting their campaign contributions politically toxic. Well put Max And you know I would say just a little bit beyond this that any elected official can sign this pledge. Whether that's mayors city councillors a state REP state senators. Any target is fair game but obviously the big boys are the ones in Congress who can actually Enact Medicare for all and who the partnership is just spending hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars trying to weasel their way into their confidences and to get them to oppose this So now I'd like to say that US in the Medicare for all movement can take credit for this campaign design and the structure but actually we have an closely allied movement. Who's had a lot of success with this kind of Pledge Approach Stephanie? Do you want to say a little bit? More about sort of the roots of this tactic and the strategy sure so if this campaign sounds familiar it's because of the climate change momentum. 2017 launched a very similar pledge called the no fossil fuel money pledge after which the patients over prophets pledges kind of designed so the no fossil fuel money pledge prohibited. Siamese from accepting campaign contributions over two hundred dollars from executives political groups or lobbyists in the oil gas or coal industries. So what has been the impact of this? Almost all of the major candidates in the presidential race of sign the pledge although both Biden and budgets have come under fire for violations of of the pledge and over fifty members of Congress and both the Senate and House have signed as well and dozens of elected state and local levels as well I think you know when there was news about Biden holding a fundraiser with an investor in fossil fuels and Buddha judge also having close ties with some of these industry players that has been huge news. And it's really affected perceptions about their campaigns So what do you think? Ben What do you think is the potential of this campaign? Yeah well so first of all. I'm going to play a clip from An activist in the sunrise movement. Who has worked had been heavily involved in this no fossil fuel contributions campaign Talk about what he sees as the impacts and then. I'm going to say a little bit about how that sort of carries over to Medicare for all for us the no fossil fuel money. Pledge has been a tremendous tool for three reasons. I it's been a really good at organizing tool for building are organizing muscle second. It's helped us draw media attention to the corruption of fossil fuel money in politics and three. It's translated into concrete political games both in winning and losing elections as well as the impact inside the legislatures. Yes these are all some of the outcomes that I think we'll see also in the Medicare for all movement I see this pledge as a very versatile tactic right You can target existing legislators who support Medicare for all already. But you know maybe. Their level of commitment is not super strong Maybe we're a little worried that when it comes time to actually vote on this bill we might lose that legislator That they might get cold feet Is the time to try and get them to up their commitment level and to really pledge not to take money from these industries Which I think will more firmly. Secure them in our camp when it comes time to vote But you can also target if you have like a legislator who is so right wing that you don't think they're ever going to back. Medicare for all this is the way to publicly shamed them right and to start imposing political costs on them for making the wrong decision. So I think you can take You can apply this in all sorts of different targets And there's also been a lot of success recently getting candidates to pledge not to take PAC money for example. Obviously not all candidates have of of come up with this have agreed to this pledge but there's paralells of this tactic working in clean elections in anti fossil fuel movement and Clean Energy Movement And I think bringing this tactic to our woman is really going to strengthen us. Yeah I think the corporate pack pledge has been really useful for our movement. Because you know we've seen candidates who have taken the pledge return or refused donations from insurance and pharmaceutical companies but because it doesn't include individuals like you know the new patients over profit pledge does executives have been free to donate money as individuals to candidates. And that's a big issue too right because couple can actually give more than a Pat Ken so two people can give them more than a pack. They can give up to fifty six hundred dollars so marquis who is a co-sponsor of the Medicare for all bill. You know when you look up his campaign donations He has taken Donations actually Max out. Donations From health insurance executives and this pledge sort of encourages us as activists to take a closer look at the financing sources of our incumbent and our candidates. And say look this obviously violates the spirit of your co-sponsorship of Medicare for all a Bill. That would actually do away with these corporations. That are giving you money. You know in please stand with us and not the corporations. Yeah this is another clever way. That that Corporations impact elections sometimes with they won't have an official company. Pack that funnels money to a candidate. They'll like get all the executives in the company to bundle their money together essentially and send it to a certain candidate and then they're gonNA know who it's coming from but this pledge is designed to catch those people to But it is. It will not catch you. Know if some hapless low level employee of pharmaceutical company wants to support where? We're candidate they support. That's fine. We're not going after those contributions so Stephanie. If folks Who listening want to get involved with this campaign One help US pressure. They're elected to take this pledge. How do they do it? How they get involved in. What is it like? Would you have to do to to actually carry this out? Sure if you're listening to this right now you actually can participate in this campaign because every single district there is not been a single signer in Congress of this pledge yet so everybody everybody has somebody to work on totally brand new. So there's going to be a week of Action April six to the tenth Before that we'll be doing canvases to ask people to demand that their representative take this pledge and so we're going to be collecting signatures before that and then we're going to be gathering them together and we're going to have a drop off date sometime in April and both healthcare now and then you have resources to help you organize and recruit for this. You know if you want to. If you want to take the lead in organizing in your area you can do that. If you don't want to take the lead and you just WANNA show up to an event you can also do that so If you want to get involved just send us an email And we will help connect you to this

Alfonso Gmez-Rejn Plugs Into The Right 'Current'

"Today's show Kenny and Cartman in the South Park kid It's are in the middle of a big bidding war then Alfonso Gomez Ray homes movie the current war went into limbo because of Harvey Weinstein's troubles but the director let it go I couldn't stop because it wasn't hadn't been ripped away from yet and is more Aziz right wing nationalism turning off a large part of his fan base all that coming up on the frame Bloomberg's Lucas Shaw is reporting on a potential landmark deal for the lucrative streaming rights to a long running animated series before we hear from Lucas here's a clip from the show that we're going to talk about that got it banned in China here's the character that is fair to say represents the Walt Disney Company you are fat diabetic bear and if the Chinese don't watch you then I don't either now as Mr Marsh that's me randy marsh who is I don't know you are you from Pixar from South Park what South Park do I all not no not yet not yet and probably not soon that as South Park it just launched its twenty third season all old episodes of the series have lived on Hulu for the past couple of years but now the show's owner comedy central is looking for a new home Lucas who's chasing it and what kind of numbers are we talking about they are training get about five hundred million dollars or as much as five hundred million dollars for a four or five year deal and have have half a dozen companies bidding on those right they hope to get a deal done by the end of the year and I would expect you to get announced well before okay I gotta stop half a billion dollars for a couple of years for South Park we've seen deals for friends for the office what is happening here because that money seems crazy you mentioned into the office Big Bang theory has gotten a big deal Seinfeld got a big deal the money for South Park is in the Ballpark of those the thing to keep in mind to south park has more episode than any of those so that both inflate the overall package but the price that has been paid per episode decided think about it is actually a bit smaller than the other ones but what's happening is you've got this this race to build all these new streaming services you have comcast at and T. Apple and Disney all creating new services all meeting properties that people will want to watch in between those originals and the case of South Park it's one that has been very popular on Hulu and has a passionate passionate audience I think a lot of people are figuring if you go out and you license South Park not only is that GonNa bring in some customers which is weird for reruns be of more than three hundred episodes for people to watch at any time they're very watchable we're talking Luca Shaw at Bloomberg about the potential big deal for South Park does this fall into the whole idea of kind of a loss leader because there is such an arms race for content right now Netflix earlier this week borrowed another two billion dollars and has more than thirteen billion dollars in debt they're spending a lot to create an acquire content when you're thinking about a show like South Park what is the appeal of it does it bring people in who might not subsist arrive does it make those people happy wherever it ends up what is the benefit for a streaming service if you're maybe actually GONNA lose money on the deal I think it's a bit of both I think for most of these reruns especially for shows like friends in the office you're not bringing in new customers with those programs nobody is subscribing to each Max v because they're friends just like nobody subscribed to Netflix because it had friends but they're really good for retention and keeping people there in the case of South Park again so many episodes it just is a lot for people to watch so let's say for example Hbo Max five the Rights That means that for review or maybe inbetween washing succession and watchmen they might binge watch a few episodes of South Park and then a Lotta this in in my opinion is just defensive what you've got is these companies I've seen net flicks build a massive audience with their properties and with big old TV shows and movies that they had seen as not as valuable and even though net flicks is now not renewing its deals for a lot of them they just they can't stomach the thought of seeing that vacuum up these properties and continue to build an audience they want to go out and get some of these big names get a lot of headlines and show that they're in the game and so I think you're seeing prices for all these things go way up in large part because these companies have to atone and make up for years of bad dealmaking with Netflix I'm wondering about branding because if you look at Zinni plus they have I think five distinct brands it's Disney Pixar Marvel Lucas and nat go they're probably not that interested in south park giving what the creators have said about their own company but are there certain shows that fit into certain models in terms of what the content is better than others yeah I can look every service is working to define what their proposition is to consumer you know you mentioned Disney plus one hundred percent right that is not a place for park but Hulu which is also owned by Disney is where South Park has been and does a little bit more into that brand offering HBO Max makes a lot of sense shows from HBO which are obviously you know John Oliver has no problem thumbing his nose at his new corporate parents that at and T. You could see south park fitting there does South Park's bid that's something like peacock which is the service coming from comcast that's hard to know because we don't really know what the identity is of comcast South Park feels like a stretch thing like apple I could be wrong maybe apple go in and buy it but apple has thus far not bid on a Lotta Library shows and apple similar to Disney is very sensitive of its end image and I'm wanting to be relatively family friendly apple also has a huge business in China so the fact that South Park has just offended the Chinese government make the topic proposition and let me ask you this one last question South Park even though it's not at the top of the ratings has been incredibly popular for comedy central does that mean that that audience could be equally big on a streaming service I think it could especially because South Park core audience is a young man I was speaking with the former Viacom executive earlier this week and we asked him have how big South Park was for comedy central and they said that South Park was the most important show on that network it was not only the most popular one for many years it might even still be now but it was the one that sort of fed into the other programming because it spoke to that core group and frankly young men are the customers that have been most likely to sign up for streaming services early there what the industry thinks of its early adopters and so if you've got a new service and you've got South Park near betting going to probably help them in getting some of the young men in the door

Hbo Is you don't need to do this every night and make one hundred and thirty five hundred and fifty a year and there's no getting around the fact that you can put the kind of you you have time to really craft these things and make something worthwhile as opposed to let's just squeeze as much of this out to the market with what was that was that was my wish thous Matt golly stomach thriling mad girly who doesn't the microphone did not pick on how can I just say something your job is here is to assist you flew out from Los Angeles to help me I I'm here having a what I think and I hate to rate myself but I think this is a David Frost level conversation conversation conversation between two I'm going to add myself in here two monumental he's what I what I'm going one older and more venerated in one on the way up still proving himself and then there's a there's a hideous noise find well used yeah idiocies the perfect word thinking of it as my stomach just a plotting what's happened no no that's Ah your attempt to shave yeah audibly hungry to an interrupted degree beat us you know it's money costs money and that money that comes out of my pocket understand as you were please horrifying anyway my train of thought is over I think I think the two things yeah and he's he's backing away from the microphones do but I'll still here from across the that he's wearing a headset but I want to see him stretch it out the door and then after the doors taught happening prior to that like I think because I'm feeling it shake my by that one shook the table Jurassic Park Yeah we'll have coffee cups and we saw a little we saw the little ripples a Coffee Cup get bigger and bigger and bigger and the T..

A. so you're eight o'clock in the morning is my five o'clock in the morning and I I was like wait a minute eight o'clock in the morning he's in the Office at eight o'clock in the morning yeah no no no no listen you're going about this all wrong and you're going about this whole I cut my teeth at Sernet live we'll be retired you're supposed to come in a role in the afternoon bright don't even start writing till eleven o'clock at night and then be deprived of sleep and right badly for two days and I don't know it's worked so well for US I don't know why what you're doing here with you let's roll up our sleeves and get in there at eight this is a this is the only one hey we know how to make this without getting into trouble right that's the problem right we're taking so many legal swings feels like if we get one wrong it's all over it'll be a death by culp situation so that's satirist step out of the car satirist with the that's right Keanae take on what's off kilter in American culture step out of the car and get on you can see them yeah he's got a quip he's got a quip Bandini these reaching for a reference I swear when I shot him he had a reference Yeah I very much agree that you're able to do what you do because TV changed and it is now possible and you've you've proven this that by limiting the number of shows you do a you know you've had a great impact on our culture and you've been a terrific addition and inspiration to a Lotta people and you're you're not overdoing it you're not making too many king as many as you can do really that's the key yeah we're at the maximum number that we can to whilst doing a show like this we could do more shows but they couldn't all be like this I want them to be like this because they're all like miniature obsessions that yeah does it ever feel overwhelming or do you ever have these sort of moments of despair where you think do I keep going forever and what happens some definitely aware of it's all consuming by choice right so I'm aware of how lucky I am to be able this completely to one thing and obsess over it how sustainable that he's really long term I don't know I watched John Stewart closely tools the end where he was getting tired to his bones right and so I remember thinking I don't WanNa be this time at the end so so it it's hard to say is the how does this end probably as a real luxury problem with that sense of running downhill thinking when it feels like there's system that is taking over from yes what your own body terrible explanation dreadful that doesn't I'm not even sure that kind of weird and motion with your fingers like a rolling scratch that is basically Journo we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA run a loop yes I don't I don't know probably really honest answer that yeah no you don't think you're meant to know how what about you I came to the conclusion Asian that I'm a different person as I get older I'm not I I used to say you could probably shoot me through the heart before a show and still go out and do that show I crazed kind of I was on some mission to do something and I think I've mellowed I don't know what the correct word is I have more perspective now I still like to make things but I for example if you had someone told me two years ago that one of the great joys of my career would be in a sense doing eighty oh show on the side with people I admire have said really after the TV show and I would even yeah you just do the work and then later on its get sorted out by somebody or it doesn't none of it matters yeah I think there's also for me they'll be the moments of intense joy lucky if they still feel like utterly joyous that feels like pit shop still has its capacity to surprise yes give me like intense pleasure I think if I'm ever standing next to a six hundred square foot cake and feel nothing probably time to stop right or just switch to a different yeah that's true pie that's different yeah that's a different joke a massive Claire I mean what I'm saying is it's funny because I know that you're a python fanatic and You you are a Cambridge footlights yes person which always thought is just a legendary where they got started not all of them not all of them but but yeah a few of them and yeah so I started what college at there's myself in rigid wate we were in the same in he's now a writer and director and comedian And Yeah it was there that I kind of truly fell in love with comedy I remember originally doing our first we did like a two two man show that we wrote and performed us sat and it's amazing how much focus that gives you a gift this is it this is definitely it it's an amazing feeling those and he's a real gift to get that much harder at Comedy University did at my degree because it was it was the thing I knew that this was everything to me yes I remember there was and on the fringe right right we we good comics are always very you know bear supply and I think from my money they're way too many doctors plenty of them the beautiful weight right you guys invented love island didn't you didn't you invent love island dates created the herpes virus it was all day yeah that was all right there and then you and now it's come to America yes a bunch of people hooking up is it doing well in America I don't think it's not because I I'm told that in England and literally your economy broke down because all anyone did all the time was watched love is because I think there's I think.

"Welcome to warriors. chemo tell them Beverly Hills we discussed a wide range of issues from his troubles and Phoenix to the perception that he's a malcontent was early success with golden date we start our conversation by talking about his new fan. HBO's John Oliver who spoke passionately about Chris during his comments about rockets team darrow more is controversial tweet backing Hong Kong protesters we'll have our conversation right after the break this week on not your century the founding of the Black Panthers the shooting of Marcus Garvey the Million Man March and two days of memories from the nineteen eighty nine Loma Prieta earthquakes not your century it's like history class but five minutes long and fun wherever you get your podcasts do you want to be angry at him Freud white powerful with Marquees Chris is part of a three team deal with the kings and the cavaliers back in February Christmas six ten with a seven weeks plays why above the rim and can mix it up in the Post yes grown team he's had his issues on the psalms not denying that but he's the exact type of athletic big man could've balanced out west brokenhearted especially when he's coming off the bench for PJ took what I'm saying Darrell tweets about selling nothing to apologize for there but when it comes to Maki's Chris you're fucked up the mid season Rawson loose I thought it was funny man on this I appreciate what he said about me the side from what he said about Darrow adversaries to support that he gave me you know there's not a lot of people who are willing to just go out of their way to say they don't know I've never met that man I've never spoken to him and you know he said positive things about me and I'm grateful for that you know he obviously said some things about so that you know I I wouldn't say personally and I wouldn't valid for those words those are the words that he chose to say not like a film appreciative I as bad as it is funny to see that here what he had to say was that your first time seeing it I'm very solid I really I can repeat it or posted on you had to say I found it was his steve or just coaches that played in and a film room before we watched one thing that is kind of interesting about the warriors is every year they have an example of a guy who maybe didn't get a ton of interest in free agency or whatever and ends up having an important role in the team last The Kenny Clarke there's a bunch of other examples years pass do you think that says something about the warriors that they're kind of open to you know maybe other teams that are over guy but they they're willing to see that potential I mean I think it shows and that's why wins they're willing to develop their players know obviously I've been in situations where I was just saying willingness wasn't there you know I think that they're they're there to give people chances and they understand that it takes time and you know in their system is art pick up so they around you and put you in position to succeed I'm thankful to them for giving me an opportunity obviously you've been on a few teams now how how is the environment with the warriors different way different man positively all around you know even when things aren't going as well you know nobody's pointing fingers and you know again frustrated I it's I was probably the most family oriented team been on and you know I said it shows that win and they continue to Lennon always competitor every year Phoenix was kind of an interesting situation because obviously you had some early success there I remember a couple of games we had against lawyers who are all rookie team is seemed like everything was trending in the right direction finance I mean they will be better I as I don't you caught me off guard hours I was at the facility analysis on that I got traded and didn't didn't hear from them until the next day so a main is a business today they felt that they they would be going in a better direction moving on from me and you know that's their decision did you did they give any explanation for why turned into you do not in I didn't ask me Glenn but like I said I'm thankful that they made the decision that they made because gone Houston I thought it was a great fit you know they they otherwise they addition Mayor Islands of Cleveland gave me an opportunity to show a low something before free agency did did that kind of wear on your mood at all does like when you're not join the game as much to that kind of affect other aspects of your life since you know I mean I'd be lying if I said it did it but I'm the type of person I don't I don't take things beyond basketball you know what I mean like I at the end of the day it is a game I mean and I'm never going to let it affect the way that I treat myself my family or my loved one so it will bother me but I would never let it it it bothered me where I would hourly show I I'm I'm the type of person I keep things to myself and I handled things internally before go ask people to fix my problem when they have in the League for a while now is the power of narrative thing once once a narrative gets out there guy fair or not it's hard to shake that can really affect your ability to get jobs and and obviously for whatever reason the narrative out there that you were petulant or immature and talking to Steve Talking to people in the organization they don't see that at all they say that you're very quotable and they give you they love your passing ability and all these things where do you how did you handle that knowing that you know maybe it got a little bit blown out of proportion and and that that effective here in your body to get up in I mean obviously they they start somewhere I mean it's not like it's not like it it wasn't true at first you know and things like that and I I wasn't immaturity knowing it would be lying if they said that that the nineteen year olds of India aren't I drafted and I was still eighteen I'm turned nineteen so some really so he's listening to that ask for me and obviously I've grown up I've learned but you know there's always going to be a scapegoat for for bigger problems and I felt that I would point I was that scapegoat in you know they they got rid of problems still stood so that is this kind of the thing that I just had to live with was somebody has to get blamed for it and you know they cleaned house and you know stuck with me knows something that that I've I've tried to you know prove the people and so people that it's not really who I am you know group will say that I'm disrespectful you know I don't shit and things like that but I've never been told that that's true now I'm a competitive person then I'll miss sometimes the best yeah but I'm never disrespectful person I I respect authority hours Begbie who you know who are above me in a bluer blow me too I don't outwardly shy to disrespect anybody or belittle anyone and that's not how as raise so I've never been that way people say what they see and they they see it I'm an hourly express the type of person on a basketball glory may they take that and make that my personality when I'm a quiet person people myself I like the lab how how tough of a transition was it to the NBA is eighteen years old and D- making millions of dollars you're gonNA differences eighty admission you had mentioned yesterday that you know time early in your career that he was a there were struggles on the court and also offer you alluding to just the transition or the learning curve what will carling into unhappy what do you say you were depressed the word depressed

There is another big final season it rhymes with game of thrones it is getting thrown and so on but before veep wrapped up its final season. I had a chance to speak with Julia Louis Dreyfuss. There's a lot of grief around the end of a series assuming the series has been a a good thing and a happy thing which in our case it has been and that has an incredible bitter sweetness to it that can really got you and it did. Let's talk about the final season running for President and she is asked a basic question of very early in the season which is why and other people are curious but here's a conversation. I bet she has with Gary who's played by Tony Hill because it is my God is was the game changer. I took bombed the glass ceiling. I shave my in the sink of the Old Boys Club for three years. He kept me chained to a radiator some basement in Cleveland. So as far as I'm concerned America owes me an eight year stay in the White House at this time. I want a war yeah. What is it like listening to that. It's gobs of fun. I think that's so well written so I was just sort of listening to the language you you know she's not a great candidate. That's not under state but I appreciate her her bitterness and her struggle when you are playing her. You'll have some way of saying okay. I know that this is a character and and I know that what she wants is not something that she's able to express but that's the actor plane her. I have to believe what it is. She wants here's how I would answer that. She's he's a very horrible human being and hideously behaved and really has no leadership skills whatsoever or no point view even other than her own narcissistic endeavor but when you player you have to come at it from well bill why and once you start to humanize that horrible nece you can find a way in to play it with a certain amount of well in a weird way. I say empathy and even though I'm not necessarily asking the viewer to be empathetic. I just want the viewer to laugh off but it just perhaps that keeps her from being hated by the audience right. What are the greater kinds of compliments. You can get from people who work in politics. I I hear time and time again. This is what it's really like in Washington and you know. I- winces I say that too but yeah that's that's what we hear. I had the great good fortune into meet Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan once and she told me that she got together with Justice Scalia. When veep was on on the air every week to discuss the past week's episode because there were both fans imagine that are can't? I know I would do anything thing to have those conversations. Let's hope somebody recorded them. I know maybe the FBI

Disney, Nala Donald Glover And James Earl Jones discussed on Bald Movies

"Latest live action cash grab the Lion King directed by Jon Favreau and you know I never would have guessed that the man who breathed life into a multi billion dollar franchise but taking a third tier marvel property like iron man and taking passion for source material I I never thought that he you would brought that same passion to the Lion King and you know what I was right because in my opinion this is like the most of all the pointless Disney remakes this is the most pointless and the one that comes off the shabby shabby as compared to its source material Jim. What did you think and maybe talk about your personal relationship with the Lion King of any so I think the Jon Favreau had quite the passion for the source material because he just recycled it and not in like the way where you I don't know take something you have? It's old fashioned into something new. That's useful in a different way. This was the lion king like this is the most Lion King Lion King movie <hes> outside outside of the Lion King I mean the thing is is is the lion king. Only all of the animals were injected. The Boat Docks Yeah Animation <hes> that's. That's the only thing that was different about this movie in any way right. There's one hint of new song none of the plot points or any different than the lion king you remember from ninety four. It's all the same it's just a it's just a cross aboard worse version yeah and completely like you said unnecessary. I think this is like the thing I liked about. Aladdin is Kinda took it a direction and modernized it updated five the problem. The parts were little creaky and little stale where we've moved on as a society they've kind of you know propped it up and they didn't try to like out Robin Williams Robin Williams on the genie whereas this it's like. I don't understand how the animation tests came back for. These animals father wasn't like okay we gotta ditched his documentary approach and have these lions smile. Give him some fucking eyebrows house allow on the show some gene grief and rage because we know I've seen the lion king many many many many times and there's a couple of scenes where you're you're geared up to anticipate and it's exactly. The same lines exactly the same framing except for Simba's faces a grim frozen mask that is capable of showing anything other than way honestly my house cats more expressive. I that's the thing that really really surprised me and I saw a listen problems with that in like some of the trailers I saw but like I don't know I mean it's this isn't a bad film in fact honestly the first five minutes. I actually started thinking well. Maybe I'm wrong because it gave me the exact same goosebumps that intro of the Classic Lion King Circle Life Yeah <hes> but even then it's like there's a couple of parts or like you know like there's a couple of things that you you know you can do in animation like when you blink and step forward and sun you can have a baby draft. Blankets is in this. I mean if they did that with his baby. Draft who the fuck knows because baby drafts don't blink in the sun it turns out it's almost it felt like one of those Old Walt Disney movies like <hes> <hes> what is the journey home or whatever where the actually take a real poppy in a real cat kitten and or they have like little bound very tightly homered ban yeah they make a movie around around like their natural expressions and stuff <hes> but there's just I don't know I mean I didn't really pay any attention to the casting like I didn't know anybody <hes> and there's <hes> great great cat like you know the Simba Nala Donald Glover beyond say knowles stats a fucking dynamite combination like John Oliver as the Domo's as zoo is pretty inspired casting the return of James Earl Jones James Jones. You can't do better than that. I thought that <hes> Billy Eichner as to Moan was really good eye Eric Andre I know seth th- Rogan is Okay Yeah Eric Andrea one of the hyenas I I mean I said it's just I mean we can talk about it the scene by scene point by point and the trailer earn the spoiler section like do I want to on this one because if you've seen the Lion King you've seen the entirety of this movie. It's just like they changed a damn thing. No they range all all the life yeah. Apparently the animators didn't get to note that the scene. Can you feel the love tonight actually takes place at night not at noon just many many references to it being evening and being nights and then it. Blend smoothly into another night scenes really pivotal and what the fuck what the fuck why are they why are they having animated these lions in broad daylight. I don't know because you can. They're more expressive in the day. I don't ever more expressive in the day. That's the only thing I think of is the other thing is speaking of that. I defy you to tell any of those lionesses apart <hes> yeah lights off in the cartoon version. There are subtle variations in color facial expression oppression. I mean they're all kind of unique individuals. At least you know the Nairobi and Nala and the ones actually have speaking roles this like they literally all look the same and when Simba's fighting scarred there's many time I lost track of WHO Simba who was scar and they found it hilarious that these battles are so bloodless. I don't know how you get a name like scar. If nothing can cut your skin I know 'cause like it'd be like it's cannon that Mu Fossa awesome fucked him up the part of his ear off and really hideously scarred him so but yeah you can't do that when <hes> although to realistic you can't do I was kind of put off by the mature subject matter. They're they're. They're saying the F. A. R._T.. Word heard they are in case. Let that slide through yeah yeah really risk and is this P._G.. I don't know it probably is it wouldn't be stupid like whatever the whatever the original was here. It's the same because it is is the same so so. Maybe I'm a little harness movie but I actually this was the very first Walt Disney animated movie I ever saw because I my mom was a religious nut job the type of religion I mean there's lots of different ways to be a religious just not job as a parent but <hes> her particular nutjob Orie was magic anything magic and I'll add in allow <hes> sleeping beauty no little rain when the fucking sea he which get Outta here those legs are mad. I remember the look my sister and I gave each other when Rafiki started doing medicine Monkey Shit and we're like Oh God and my mom's is started twitching like us a spiritism. Does a spiritism like she's please do not storm out of that we we. We begged her to take her come on the line game. There's no magic there's no warlock in this fucking monkey starts. Doing you know the the magic adjacent shit he starts doing like some kind of weird monkey and melon based divination a nation he starts doing martial arts karate at the end which is the other kind of spiritism adjacent but it was near and dear to my heart because I that's the very first and I remember just like just like being just completely amazed at the opening act. And really moved when Fossa dies and like also we had that movie I was the only Disney animated movie for a long long time that we had on V._H._S. and my brother and sister and I kind of wore it out over the course of a summer so I'd fucking love this the Super N._S.. Lion King Okay. I don't think I ever made it past the third level because it's freakishly hard but there's a lot I have a lot of affection for this source material and Dan I just to me they should have cleaned it up that those prints as shiny as they could make him they should've completely redone to sound and just re released it because this is just you know Lion King's Tinton movie. This is like six attitude execution of that movie. This is a high school musical version of the Broadway version of the Lion King. I could see that yeah. I didn't find it offensive. I found that it was in in maybe everything except for the expressive -ness of the characters was just as effective as the original was but yeah it was entirely unnecessary. This is a fairly obvious cash crap. I didn't didn't feel that way coming out of Aladdin. I know a lot of people didn't feel that way coming out of beauty and the beast and you know the the Dumbo did People Watch Dumbo. Nobody watched dumbo right everywhere. I heard it was pretty fucking shitty. Yeah I didn't see it. I didn't either her because I heard it was pretty shitty and guess what you've got Milan coming down the pike. I don't I've never seen Milan. I mean it's a fine. It's it's it's probably one of the lesser of the new golden age of Disney like it's kind of their into Pocahontas level level where it's like animation still amazing songs that nearly as catchy core concept not as solid and I've heard that they're actually a skewing the songs more or less in Milan and just like a straight like a straight drama weird. I could be wrong on that but I just. I don't know I it. It's it's not it's so cynical. I said cash grab because it's it's not it's not just a blatant redundant cash grab. It's just a pace. These does relentless Klis pace that they're that they're doing them into. I don't understand why we need. Five remakes of Disney live action Disney movies in a single year and I don't even know if it might be more than that like. I don't know if they've got. They're going to sneak something out. Pass them along before Christmas. I don't know I don't know they just cast a little mermaid. I I don't know how far that's that that's behind but who's playing Sebastian. I don't know okay. That's my biggest question about that movie. Maybe Ahmed Best Okay Yeah sure thanks Yeah Sebastian yeah he so Whoopi Whoopi in the under the sea yeah love song so I got some more stuff to say 'cause I got. I actually Kinda WanNa actually KINDA WANNA break it down so you might say because he's keep on saying that it's shot for shot for Lion King and that's my biggest problem is is that I don't think it is. I think they're I mean they try not shot but beat for beat. Story is one hundred percent every bit of the staging is is noticeably inferior and worse than than the than the the original and some of the things that like what they did to be prepared is a God damn criminal travesty. That's one of my favorite songs from the Lion King and I've never seen a more dispirited parroted punting of a musical number then than I have. I don't know Jimmy Nicholson who I considered. The foremost expert on Disney films on the Internet suggested that there's also a muted quality due to vocal performances like everything everyone's kind of like instead of like even James Earl Jones instead of just like because I remember I I can I can hear in my head exactly how he says. Nobody messes is with the year old band or I can. I can hear like they. They just didn't quite nail it and her theory is they had to have all the actor scale back because if they were as a motive as the original lion king it would look wildly out of place with the animation style and it's like the one thing that you could have gone ten for ten and let like Donald Glover and beyond say and James Will Jones uncork and actually you know she would tell Chew Hotel Jia for <hes> who I think is an amazing actor. He got the world's most laid back quiet unassuming scar and it's just a shame because he's trying to follow giant. Jeremy Irons plays one of the the all time Great Disney villain voices and it just. I don't know

"john oliver" Discussed on Pinstripe Lanes Podcast - New York Yankees (Unofficial)

"Lanes, podcast dot com. Did not get an episode out last week. So that's why we're dropping this one a little earlier. We wanted to drop this one last week, actually late last week and things got a little hectic in the life of, of an unemployed person like myself between the sign off of the legendary WPRO Jay, which very thankfully, I was able to be a part of late last week. And then I had to travel to Connecticut to do some work with my friends up at Mohegan sun. My first of I think two or three trips up there this month alone. Plus, we got some, some other stuff cooking outside of the podcast. For me, personally, I'm still doing stuff with dish network, and we have a few other leads as I try to move on to this next phase of my career nonetheless that matters right now as we talk things that Yankee fans care about specifically Yankee tickets on this episode of the pinstripe lanes podcast, we'll do a deep dive at a little bit into John Oliver and his most recent comments about the Yankees, a lot of Yankee fans were up in arms over it. I was not. It's and that's coming from someone who, as a big fan of John Oliver, and also someone who has had the chance to interview him a number of times you'll hear some of those interviews and this, this all dates back to like twenty sixteen. The whole John Oliver thing, but we'll get into it and just a little bit here on the pinstripe planes podcast. Some other news and notes, very quickly, something actually related to what will be talking about with John Oliver and the Yankees the secondary ticket market. We'll talk more stub, hub and a little bit. But I use gametime on Sunday night, I bought, and then sold a ticket, probably the easiest, I've done either since new Yankee Stadium opened. I mean really period for that matter. If you've used gametime before they kinda marketed, as a, a place to go for last-second tickets, and I found out why on Sunday as I was thinking about going up to the Bronx or that Sunday night loss against the Red Sox. I bought a pinstripe pass on there for, I believe. Out the door with fees, twenty five dollars, great deal, considering were going for twenty five on TicketMaster. That's not including fees. So you basically save fees going that way. And you still get your free twelve ounce beer and away you go. Well, then I decided I wasn't going to go up to the Bronx and obviously saved myself a long rainy night in a loss. You can relist on gametime you literally just tap one button, and it's backup you don't even have to set the price. What gametime does the algorithm in the app? Looks at the market looked at the listings and figures out the best price to put it on there, so that your ticket will sell them that hopefully you won't lose any money. I think I ended up losing maybe like five bucks when it was all said and done, but within a half hour, naughty. And by the way, this was like an hour prior to first pitch within a half hour of me, listing it. The ticket was sold. And I believed we're taping this on June fourth. It's a Tuesday. I believe today, the money supposed to hit my pay pal account. So where you go on that. So. Pretty cool stuff. And a good experience there with gametime. I've hit the trifecta I believe if I used to why you step up for the Baltimore game that I went to, but I've you stub I've you seek, I've used gametime and of course, I've bought tickets directly through TicketMaster as well. So by any means necessary, but, hey, you as a consumer should use all of these tools as well. Every different platform has their pros and cons depending on what you're looking for, whether it's a premium seat, whether it's a cheap, see, whether it's just you going, whether it's a big group of people going whether you're looking for shelter. Whether you're looking for included food, there's all these different options, and so it's good to have a number of different platforms, you can go to based on your budget, and your other various needs. Also, some merchandising news real quick. The stars and stripes collection is out for this year. It was a big hit last year. And you can tell that because they haven't modified last year's designed to much to this year's that said, I like last. Here's a lot better last year. If you remember for stars, and stripes, the Yankees, and I believe, by the way, they're only doing hats, this year, hats and stand socks. But the hats were all navy you had the NY with the American flag over it, and then you had the AL logo on the side, this year, you have all of that, with the exception of the Bill of the hat is red. I don't like it. I mean I guess from a fat appear fashioned standpoint. Maybe it looks a little better better. Maybe it looks okay? But as far as a Yankee hat standpoint, I mean, I, I was more likely to buy last year's hat that I would buy this year's hat, and I didn't buy last year's at so I'm definitely not buying it this year. The Father's Day caps are out as well. Now, you remember these have attentive blue to them to raise awareness for prostate cancer. I thought they were going to go the direction of the mother's day caps, which had the navy crown, and then this cool kind of pink blend for the N Y and for the Bill. Nope. They took that blend turned it into blue and made the. The entire Bill of the cap are excuse me, crown of the cap that, like Royal blue and then I believe the Bill and the N Y or navy. I don't like it at all again. I just I'm just not a fan of messing with the tradition. And I think there are ways where you can recognize these various causes in various platforms of various concerns, without having to completely change the hat, so that you have another hat to sell in your store because I think a lot of times that's what this sadly comes down to. And by the way, I think it's very interesting, we're about charity. We're raising funds this that and the third majestic hasn't done really any special jerseys this year, at least as far as the Yankees are concerned, you know, they've put the different patches and ribbons on them. But as far as completely changing the NY and or pinstripes into camouflage or pink or blue. They haven't done any of that why I thought this was offered charity. No, I think what happens if you look back. Back at those Jersey's the end up getting markdown in a clearance. And I think they're sick of losing money on them going to my point, which is this is all about money. And if it were about the charity, there would be, I think, in my opinion, more effective ways to go about this. All right without further ado, we now talk about John Oliver's latest comments surrounding the Yankees that he really doesn't like too much. However, he does have a few dare. I say legit reasons will explain next here on episode over twenty six of the pinstripe lanes podcast..

"That AJ styles might not have referenced Randy Orton failing drug tests, you know, fifteen years ago, if w didn't want to let people know, yeah, we test are a wrestlers for drugs and have for a very long time. I don't know that they would have done that in one of that message out there if it weren't for that pesky comedian John Oliver in HBO crew, re bringing up a lot of issues that WWE hasn't done a large public forum had to deal with for for a number of years. You know, we'll never know problem. Well and less on writer discipline cash on day budge. I the same thought did cross my mind when he said that and I mean again, no way of knowing for sure. But the timing certainly is interesting. Yeah. So the John Oliver tonight special. I ran a poll. On on the app POW torch Twitter account asking if people thought the story if they saw it, you know, to honor system here. But if they saw did you think it was fair or unfair? And I didn't know what to expect, but the total now with three hundred forty votes in is twenty seven percent thought it was somewhat unfair totally unfair and the rest math quiz. Jason twenty-seven percent. No, I'm kidding. And then the rest say which is seventy three percent say that it was almost totally fair really fair. I I like kind of in the middle on it. And I want to talk to you about that a little bit for those who didn't see it last week tonight with John Oliver on HBO Sunday night did a story that ultimately focused on WWE's treatment of wrestlers and whether they're doing enough. In have been doing enough. And if wrestlers have paid a price for WWE not doing enough, and they used some quotes, including a twenty one year old quote from Bret Hart back in one thousand nine hundred eight they took excerpts of contracts. Other things wrestlers have said talked about wrestler deaths, including the recent King Kong Bundy death and called out WWE for classifying wrestlers as independent contractors rather than employees with the argument being if they were employs at a better representation that could they would be treated better. They would have more of a say so. What what did you think watching it? I thought some things were funny some were kind of cliche and disappointing as far as the attempts at humor. But what did you think in terms of that fairness question, are you with the the the nearly three fourths who think it was fair or with the just over one four through thought it was somewhat or not not fair at all. I mean. A tough one to answer because. Yeah, there were aspects of it that seem a little unfair from timing perspective things have improved, but you don't get to completely run from your past either. And that's the thing. I like the people who have defended WWE on this just feel like because they were pointing like they're just they want to ignore the fact that they raised very good points about datum points at you. And I and many others have raised about the independent contractor status and things of that nature. So I mean, I think from an entertainment perspective. I I think you kind of have to put yourself in the position to of somebody who doesn't watch wrestling. And I'm sure the replanning of people watching that fall into that category. So some of the jokes may not click with us as people who do follow the industry so closely, but I think some of those same jokes probably did hit with a with a non wrestling fan. Just kind of seeing this and being surprised by I do wish it would have been. A little bit..

Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX ribbon. I'm Alfred and I'm Scott Stein. Scott just published his review of the new ipad. Pro it's got a new pencil a new design a new face ide-. But it's also got a new price tag. Yes. Does sting is expensive? It goes up to eighteen ninety nine that's for all the specs and all the trimmings starts at seven ninety nine for the eleven inch. I looked at the twelve point nine inch version and have been living with for a little less than a week. Do you like it is it a so I think what I'm especially interested in is. Is it a computer replacement is it gonna replace affairs here? Yeah. What is it? What is it? Up replace. No, I don't think it's a very good laptop replacement because if you're looking for track pad support or mouse support it doesn't have that still, and it doesn't have the sort of web experience at the browser experience that you might expect that's on a Chromebook even that that allows for deeper web tools, but if you don't care about that if you have already been using an ipad or no tonight that pros bring to the table last year similar idea in the software hardware super blazing fast. And I think the design of it is really nicely refined. But that's kind of an apple trend of this year. Larger screens more refined higher price. Yeah. Good grief. The other thing. That's like the most aptly thing about this is that they came out with a new pencil that doesn't work with the old ipad. Yeah. Only works with this one. Yeah. So you have to buy new pencil, and it's one hundred thirty dollars hundred thirty dollars, which is ally. Now, the thing is if you've never gotten one of these before, and you get this now, the pencil charges and works, much, more seamlessly. It's great to have that. It's kind of like air pods. Nice instant available for you. Much better than that stabbing out the back, but to have to buy a whole new end, and I'd have any adapter for the old one is crazy. Okay. But okay, we're kind of focusing on some of the less, enjoyable parts of this. Did you like using it was it funded, you know, kind of draw with with the pencil where there are a lot of nice improvements. When when you're using it for what an ipad is for like all those are graphics everyday like a web razzing even writing I really like it. And I've traveled with an ipad a lot too is. I think to take notes with or just us on the train and for the amount of apps it has and for all that stuff. But what I don't like is when you have to start editing rave to start doing anything that gets more mission critical, which is the idea of pro that part. You can't take it with you. I don't think and file an entire story without a lot of headaches. So that part I don't like, but I did like the speed of it. I like the design refinement, there's more screen and less is. I wish you didn't cost more. Yeah. Yeah. No kidding. So we've also got. Even more election scams. We've got Alfred here to talk about them this one targeting vote for one one dot org. Tells you vote for one dot org is a voter information website, you can find out where to register to vote. What candidates you in your district stand for and what's on the ballot? Generally, John Oliver had promoted on a show last week tonight on October twenty eighth and I got a two thousand percent spike in traffic after that little promo and it two days after he promoted scammers set up a website called vote for one one dot com. Which is a common mistake that people would make most people are going dot com websites and this website, basically ran a online technical support scam. Which is if you ever go on a website. And it tells you like, hey, you've been infected with a virus? Please call this number to get it removed. And then you know, they essentially put a virus on your computer. If you do call that number, and then you acid you. They ask you to pay them to get rid of it was very common scheme. But now, they're using you know, curiosity around the mid term. Elections to basically use it as a watering hole type of attack where they know a lot of people are going to be looking for these election updates and things like that. And they're using that to their advantage. With a fake website. Do do we know if there are now more or less midterm related hacks or scams going on nowadays than maybe four years ago? I mean, it's unclear because anytime somebody gets hacked, it's not like there's somebody going out there say, hey, we did this or anything like that. But we do know that there have been. They're more vigilant about it. And there are a lot of examples about this so Microsoft in August talked about how they had gone rid of these websites that were basically doing the same thing. But it might have been for a lot more malicious purposes because so while the fake vote for on dot com website was more for financial gains the Russian websites that Microsoft had taken out more specifically like politically motivated. Great. If you want to read more about these stories, check us out on seen it. I'm Ben FOX urban. I'm offering I'm Scott Stein. Thanks for listening.

"I was wondering if your car at any context for that because i trust the source but it seems absolutely ludicrous well until three four and five year olds are not actually in court representing themselves as as their own sorry they did say there was a judge defending that and saying well it's hard to teach it three four and five year old but i've done it and it works but this guy you know i wish i were familiar with it but i i am not i'm afraid we i do know i didn't see the john oliver peace and john oliver also very strongly took on sinclair but the there certainly is a back and forth on the policy of who's entitled to representation and as somebody would have a public defender in a criminal case not necessarily in a deportation case an immigration detention and deportation proceeding is is my understanding song glare john oliver brought attention to that how they treat three year olds and five year olds in you know in that in that context maybe there was a little comedic hyperbole for comedic effect after a judge said something that maybe to give him the benefit of the doubt didn't come out exactly the way he meant it i do now but certainly there's a push ryan in the direction of just you know making all the presumptions on the side of the deportation rather than on the side of staying here and i guess karen that's what's up with call to have to put in a quota and i guess that's coming from sessions that there'd be a quota for the number of deportation hearings conducted over whatever period of time there is a huge backlog hundreds of thousands of cases backlog but of course justice sped up to meet a quota is justice that denies the complexity complexity of individual circumstances that's right and you know this is something though that every administration struggles with in different ways i mean you might recall that president obama a lot of hispanic activists used to refer to the obama administration and obama's the deport her in chief of this backlog is is a big problem ryan to me about sinclair.
