"Public. Radio Jim Brady Marjorie Ian we may not have that wall but president trump has made good on his campaign promise of putting America first. As you know, we're leading the world and the Corona Virus Body Count. Having reached an unimaginable two, hundred thousand deaths. Yesterday's the president seizes. This is not because he concealed the threat of the disease it's not because he discourages from wearing face mass encourage the economy to open up prematurely and factors. He told the UN Unbelie, he has nothing to do with this. We must hold accountable the nation which unleashed this plague onto the world China. China, joining us a line for his take on this and other medical headlines is art caplan artisan doctors. William F. and Virginia Collie Mini Chair and director of the Division of Medical Ethics Nyu School of medicine although their art caplan. Our you. Capping. So we have passed this two, hundred, thousand dollars at two thousand. Two hundred thousand dollars death mark excuse me and is just staggering. What's your reaction? Unbelievable four percent of the world's population live. In the US, we have twenty percent of the deaths. That's inexcusable. It's On trump in the White House, for not managing to keep our death rate down, you know we mentioned that. We were somehow he had nothing to do with it and I'm going to agree because he didn't get us. Equipment we needed protective gear. We still don't have it. We still don't have enough testing. He keeps yelling about less testing we need more. we've had no federal policy you left it up to the states. which allowed the virus defined home in certain parts of the country in kickback. So it really has been abysmal leadership on these single, most important issue of. His presidency you. Know a good quality mind or a bad quality are Kaplan but I think it's fair to say anything Marjorie would agree when we text that night and compare the news of the day Marjorie is generally ready more to have her head popoff and I have been able to stay relatively calm however. When three things happened yesterday one when I saw the president say when he was asked about the two hundred, thousand death number and by the way he didn't mention it on his own at all. It was only when a reporter asked he said quote, it's a shame and then blame China to. The press secretary. Had the nerve to stand at the podium in the media room and talk about how every night he goes to bed thinking about every single one of these people and then three CNN this beautiful and powerful and painful thing where they scroll down on the right hand side of the screen, the names of hundreds if not thousands of the two hundred. Thousand and it is amazing to me. I don't care what your politics are that the American people appear to be willing at least a significant chunk to tolerate the fact that every scientist says you know are that the vast majority of these two hundred thousand deaths and the next two hundred thousand likely to come..

Her Father John was a successful banker and her mother Catherine was a member of the family that founded Barclays Bank which still operates is one of the largest banks in the world. Elizabeth was the odd one out amongst her siblings. She experienced mood swings and had difficulty learning which biographers attribute to her dyslexia. Elizabeth once said I was thought and called very stupid and obstinate I certainly did not like learning nor did I believe attend my lessons when Elizabeth was twelve years old her mother passed away and Elizabeth was left to care for her younger sisters and brothers. Eighteen hundred at the age of twenty. Elizabeth Mary Joseph Fry London banker and quaker together. They had many children most sources say eleven, five sons and six daughters though some sources suggest that had even more kids. Elizabeth was an observant quaker and frequently worshipped at the Friends Meeting House. It was there the she heard Williams savory preach about the importance of altruism and philanthropy. His words inspired Elizabeth to help those in need. In eighteen thirteen elizabeth visited newgate prison, which was notorious for its filthy state and its dismal treatment of its prisoners. Elizabeth was appalled to see such harsh conditions. Women and children were tightly packed in small spaces with little room to wash themselves or cleaned their clothes, and while many of the newgate prisoners had committed severe crimes, some of them had not. And others hadn't even received a trial. Elizabeth was determined to act the next day she returned to the prison with fresh loaves of bread and clean clothes, but she had sewn herself. She distributed them to the prisoners and encourage them to keep their cells clean and find ways to be hygienic in the oppressive environment. Elizabeth didn't come back to newgate until eighteen sixteen due to financial difficulties within her family. But upon her return, she dove back into the Work Elizabeth educated the children of Newgate who were imprisoned with their parents teaching them practical skills like reading and selling. In eighteen seventeen, Elizabeth founded the Association for the improvement of female prisoners along with twelve other women she worked to advance prison reform and to provide female prisoners with education and tools for employment Elizabeth fought for the idea that prison should be based round rehabilitation rather than punishment she wrote it must indeed be acknowledged that many of our own penal provisions as they produced no effect appear to have no other end the punishment of the guilty. Eighteen nineteen Elizabeth wrote prisons and Scotland in the north of England and encouraged her society friends to visit newgate themselves. At. That time Britain was in the practice of sending prisoners to penal colonies in. North. America Australia and India. At newgate. Prisoners en route to be transferred to convict ships, rebound by chains and unable to move around and tiny carts people in the streets pelted them with garbage. Elizabeth convinced the governor of new gate to carry the women enclosed carriages rather than open ones and to ensure that all the women and children had enough food to eat on their voyage. Elizabeth also gave the prisoner sewing tools, bibles and other necessities to accompany them on their long journeys. With the help of her efforts, the act of transporting criminals so far away lands was prohibited in eighteen, thirty seven. Prior to that change in policy Elizabeth visited every convict ship bound for Australia for more than twenty five years. Throughout the eighteen twenties, Elizabeth inspected prison conditions and continued to advocate for the rights of prisoners. She presented her findings to the House of Commons committee in doing. So she became the first woman to present evidence to parliament. Elizabeth's ideas influenced the eighteen twenty three jails act which introduced a series of prison

Women who stood up and fought against injustice and for a better world today, we're talking about a woman who doesn't often receive the recognition she deserves for her behind the scenes activism. As a prolific activist, she had a hand in society changing work major civil rights leaders turned to her for her organizational skills. Let's talk about Ella Josephine Baker.

"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia will manteca today's musician was a piano virtuoso and composer at a time when women rarely performed or wrote their own work although many of her compositions remain unknown her collaborations with her husband resulted in one of the most fruitful musical partnerships at the early nineteenth century. Let's talk about Clara Schumann. Clara Josephine was born in Eighteen nineteen in Leipzig Germany her father Frederik peak was a sought after piano instructor. Frederick married one of his students, Marianne and together they had five children, Clara and her four brothers.

In eighteen twenty nine at the age of eleven, Clara made her performance debut in Leipzig Clara began touring in Germany France and Austria. She was one of the few pianists of her time who played by memory and she performed not only her own compositions but also those that were more well known by Johann Sebastian Bach Domenico Scarlatti. Ludwig. Van Beethoven and Robert Schumann. Robert Schumann due to a self inflicted injury to his right hand was the only composer among his contemporaries who did not play his own work.

Solving the mental load update
"When we first spoke about the mental load on this podcast, there was a fringe cartoon cold. You should've asked that was going viral. It explained the mental load with such clarity that when I first saw it, my reaction was fury. I wanted to. Shift to the ground. It showed a woman with a baby and a hapless male partner who was kind, but needed to be told how to help and it so familiar. So common. So exasperating and so profoundly unfair. Journalist, Tracey spicer new. What I was talking about. It was an absolute lightbulb moment for me, I sir, Clementine, Ford's facebook page. I share with everyone and I knew that went viral swear words and it happened in the time when I realized that my life with my wonderful husband who's fifty fifty with the housework fifty, fifty with the childcare, but it was just the little things. I'm always the one who organizes school holiday care or who takes the time to look after the kids or rangers everyone's Christmas presents or birthday present in his extended family and my extended family. So after reading that I, decided to go on strike in the household so he had to do it drove him Berserk. He said this is crazy. Such little school holiday cared Australia. I said now you know my pain. Jenny talk about the mental load in your life. I think when I saw the catching was like, oh, no added that to my mental learn. About. How often I think about the mental load? That's Jenny Leong amp in New South Wales Parliament I was very lucky and I consider it to be like that. My partner was able to access paid parental leave. So he was the primary care for a significant amount of time and in that case he did take the mental Lloyd and a lot of that was then there that the what's interesting is once we're both Both. Back at work where the default position falls back and the expectation of WHO's supposed to know those things to me. Then you feel like part of it is also all of my being bad feminist because of that because I think then adds another level to it to how much you should make a deal of this or not I noticed the gender dynamic with my. Friends that are in. Relationships, they're both men they quite comfortably into stereotypes, gender roles that old without all of the challenges and the. Doctor Leah. Repent on a lecturer in sociology at the University of, Melbourne. She racist as domestic labor, and this idea of the mental load is her field of expertise. I'm going to start and say a little bit controversial. Say That everyone actually carries the mental load. So some portion of your mental load may go to thinking about your career. Some portion of it may go to thinking about your family and some portion of it may be going to thinking about your personal life and the differences, the balance across men and women. So you could imagine men are spending a lot more of their mental load thinking about how do I advance my career thinking about the day to day challenges of work. That is a very different mental load than who is going to pick up the child from daycare. or WHO's GonNa Organize School holidays or who's doing the housework wise. House a mass. And one leads to economic outcome, career mobility and one is just unpaid sometimes recognized sometimes not recognized labor. And I think that's really the difference. How do we shift the ratio? Definitely does seat more with women the. Yeah, I, K-. So we're all in agreement about that. Absolutely. Absolutely, the balance in terms of unpaid in terms of thinking about the experience is disproportionately shouldered by women. Yes. Absolutely. Once, you get your head around the idea of the mental load. You start seeing it everywhere in the lives of your friends, colleagues, your mother, your self. It. Happens to women in all walks of life and age and six urology, but it seems to hit hardest when there's a baby. So. Now, we have a name for the mental load. But. The problem is naming, it doesn't make it go away. As I was sobbing thinking. I used to be able to manage employees teams. And now I'm too overwhelmed to even manage a grocery list. And more importantly. How did I become the default for every single child care and household tasks for my family? It wasn't supposed to happen to me. This is a road ski shades La, and she's written a book called Fairplay, which is all about fairly distributing the mental load aves marriage nearly ended when her husband center, it takes saying. I'm surprised you didn't get blueberries. She was furious at the assumption that she had gone from high powered lawyer to full-time Default Blueberry shepper. Eight. Knew she had to do something about it? She says, there are a few ways to look the mental load. My favorite was a term from nineteen eighty-seven and American sociologist named Arlene Kaplan. Daniels. coined a term called invisible work. In why like that term so much is because that's the only one that had a modicum of a solution in it. Because I kept thinking to myself. Maybe. Maybe if I can make. Visible all the invisible things I was doing from my home and family for my husband, Seth? Maybe then he would value what I did.
COVID-19 Vaccine Ethics: Who Gets It First and Other Issues
"US government's. Warp speed is ambitiously trying to create test and licensed vaccine for covid nineteen in less than a year compared to the five to ten years typically needed for a new vaccine. The program is borrowing strategies from a crash effort undertaken in the nineteen fifties against polio. Arthur caplan was seven years old when that paralytic disease which had been terrifying parents nationwide came to his town. Last. People. In America. Get. Polio in the Boston outbreak of nineteen, fifty seven, that's where I'm from. Saw Kids in our loans on kids die in the floor. It's one of the reasons I got interested in medical ethics. The Polio vaccine developed in the fifties it saved millions of lives and brought us tantalizingly close to eradicating the disease altogether. But in the haste to produce them researchers and manufacturers occasionally made mistakes and crossed ethical boundaries. Experimental vaccines were tested on intellectually disabled children, for example, as well as millions of people in the Belgian Congo and the Soviet Union who were not given the option for informed consent that today we consider indispensable. Medical ethics come a long way in the past sixty, five years. The World Health Organization has already set up a working group on ethics and Kobe Nineteen of which Kaplan is a member. They have started thinking through many of the tough questions ahead as companies race to test experimental vaccines, and we hope eventually ramp up manufacturing of those who succeed to billions of doses. Worldwide these questions include how can we make sure vaccine trials don't exploit people or enroll too few participants from black native Latino communities who are disproportionately sickened been killed by this disease who will get approved vaccines I and who will pay for them and what if anything should we do about vaccines being sold on the black market? The most immediate questions involve large-scale clinical trials those trials will take months to produce results. Can says, one reason is if I give you the experimental vaccine. Then, I have to wait for the. Virus in nature to infect me to see whether I'm going to do better than a group that didn't get vaccine usually have a placebo control group were you don't give them an active agent and you sort of monitor one against the other. If, you're waiting for natural infectivity with Kobe we have a problem because the Degree to which the becoming infect is very slow. So you'll notice that people are starting to recruit subjects for trials right now in hot spots, they may be looking at Brazil. They may be looking at Atlanta it could be looking at a region of the country that has. A A big outbreak. But at the same time, morally we have to try and tell people who sign up for vaccination studies they should not get themselves infected. So it's a sort of moral catch twenty two, you can't really. Encourage people to be reckless and get themselves. In fact, an the problem is you're probably not going to take sicker people because it makes it difficult to assess whether a vaccine is causing an adverse event or an underlying illnesses causing events. Most of the people who come into these big vaccine trials are healthy volunteer still they're younger. Is An effort underway. In the NIH sponsor trials to try and get more diversity ethnicity and race but a lack of transparency in who is being selected for the vaccine trials has raised concerns that historically underrepresented communities may once again be overlooked. Kaplan says that the preference for healthy volunteers is also one of the reasons that vaccine testers probably won't turn to one otherwise logical place to recruit participants prisons where corona virus has been running rampant, you can't use a vulnerable population because you worry that they can't consent. They're gonNA try and say I'll do it because they want to get out of jail or get parole the other main reason why Is prison populations usually have two or three underlying diseases. I know MTV everybody's at the gym looks such Arnold Schwarzenegger. But in fact, hepatitis HIV drug abuse is a bunch of reasons why they're not a best subjects for for any beginning studies
Why Microsoft wants TikTok
"We start off with the deal that has got wall. Street. Washington, and the World Talking Microsoft dying and acquisition of Tiktok in this comes after president trump threatened to ban the video sharing APP here in the US over security concerns the president then made an about face and gave Microsoft the go ahead to proceed with the deal shares of Microsoft rallying today. Let's get to Josh. Lipton with the very latest Josh. So Melissa President trump also weighing in here. Take a listen to what he had to say today. Would have closed down on September fifteenth unless Microsoft or somebody else's able to buy it and work out a deal inappropriate deal. So the Treasury of the. Really, the Treasury I guess you say of the United, states, gets a lot of money. So, why is Microsoft interested in Tiktok? Well, it's a wildly popular APP with one hundred, million users already here in the US engagement trends are strong and stuff that users already spent over an hour a day on the APP Tales. Patrick at emphasizes too broad reasons why he says this could make strategic sense argues Microsoft is relatively weak in consumer services with the exception of xbox live gaming service. So Co a delicate immediately become a much bigger player in consumer technology second this is a potential moneymaker in delicate monetize that big pool of fans to advertising business that the company well understands but they are. Real risks to Microsoft's history and consumer focused acquisitions is mixed from Nokia's handset business to mixture. It's live streaming service. There's also the question of focus here and Adela has concentrated on the enterprise market analysts say that has served his company very well and kept him out of that Regulatory Spotlight Melissa back to you Josh. Thank you. Josh with the latest on Microsoft tiktok cloud plowed his business that got Microsoft to where it is today. Guy Me. So if you Microsoft goes down this road of buying this business while it seems like it's the hottest property around in social media does that do Microsoft shareholders? Well? Probably Yeah I mean the market today told you absolutely yes and a lot of people say it style drift and could lead them down a bad road but you know what are we talking about in terms of price tag your I haven't seen anywhere from forty to fifty billion dollars. You probably know better than I and it's it's it's basically rounding. For Microsoft Number One and number two, the move into stock more than paid for the deal. So it's hard not to like. This Mike Real question is clearly I missed that day in college when the US Treasury gets investment banking fees on deals that are done between two companies I don't know how I missed it, but clearly, I did what? What? Exactly? How does the US Treasury come into this equation? I guess it's somewhat of rhetorical question but you know this whole thing is fascinating to me on a number of levels. But the answer, your original question I don't think it's negative Microsoft and the market today told you it's positive. I mean the order to divest is one interesting aspect of this whole affair. Then there's I mean when I read it, I immediately thought like brokers fee Harkening to Donald Trump's real estate days I don't know if he thinks he gets twenty per treasury excuse me gets twenty percent or what exactly the Treasury is GonNa get out of this whole thing Karen on one can only imagine. I have no idea. Maybe one has got. To be in this situation. It really is crazy I don't love the precedent at all. I feel like we're just sort of taunting. China to. have some sort of reciprocal response that I would imagine. We really won't like very much. So I I'm. Kind of perplexed by the whole thing and I mean I don't know what the right Fi is a. The whole thing is. That part is so crazy he did. Trump say either to Microsoft or someone else I don't know I mean. Microsoft can compete with anyone in terms of price. I don't know if there is a possibility of someone else, but I get also Microsoft which sort of want to give it a try why not money is free to them practically, I mean they have cash but if they wanted to do with dad, it's practically free to them. So I know the woman Tiktok doesn't make money, but I still think it's interesting for them to do and clearly guy pointed out the stock market or the Microsoft holders. It. bakes. Well there's two things here on the big kind of geopolitical. If you don't think that the global economy is fracturing at least into pieces than you're not paying attention because that's what the deal the precedents of this deal is number two on the Microsoft Front. I personally. Don't understand why Microsoft would want this the only thing that makes sense if they can get it at a discount because bike dances forced to divest it but I'm not sure I mean again Josh. They don't have a great history on the consumer side. I mean I'm sure guy still remembers the Zun I still have one of those that was an abject failure. Don't know what this does for them. I do it. You know you you lose focus. So for me I don't really like it but you know what? I'm not the stock market and the stock market like ten. This is exactly Brian San Love Brandon Guy. This is exactly why Microsoft wants it because they're not here because because everyone else first of all, that could be a buyer of this is is in Washington under the scrutiny of the government in terms of their social platforms or too big. This totally makes sense I mean think about the business that they just told you about in gaming an xbox and even azure and the fact that ninety percent of the market. Cap Probably is enterprise. That's the whole point. That's why you'd be going after this year to me. This is this makes a ton of sense because they're probably the only guys can step in and buy it at least with this type of ability to navigate both Washington navigate the financials and yes, they are getting it at a beaten down valuation. If you're getting this anywhere from I, don't know seven eight to ten times. Where these guys are in terms of revenue, that's Eba dos gives me e extraordinary and I think it's actually been proven to be. We've talked about on this show why facebook is running scared of TIKTOK. So why wouldn't Microsoft running towards talk? It makes a lot of sense I like it. All right. Let's get more on what this deal could mean for. Microsoft let's bring in is jared Weiss fell jared great to speak with you. You also think this deal makes a whole lot of sense. In terms of the synergies across the consumer business think this deal could enhance for Microsoft. I think at the end of the day, the biggest takeaway should be from Microsoft perspective when you have the ability to go ahead and integrate a lot of the capabilities that tic TAC. TIKTOK has you think about the technology stack that TIKTOK has and it's incredibly sophisticated. So you can then leverage that and marry that with some of the internal capabilities that Microsoft already has on Azure with the second largest cloud service provider the on the planet I think the the capabilities are dramatic. Tiktok knows what you. Want before you even know that. So when you the leverage that with the capabilities of absorb, I think it makes a lot of sense and then to the earlier point that was brought up I think that's actually key. If you then have the ability to leverage that and bring it into gaming, bring that into Cortina the digital search engine, bring that into being I think the the possibilities are significant. So it it certainly makes a lot of sense obviously, the stock market rewarded Microsoft today and you've added more than. The top valuation in Microsoft's Market Kaplan. Is. There a risk though that that tiktok is the next snap in that snap has run into user growth issues and monetization issues or is finding a home in Microsoft good to going to sorta bypass that possibility is outcome. It's a fair point, but you almost have a free call option if you're searching. You have the ability to go ahead and acquire the asset potentially on the cheap, and if you think about it, you've got one party Microsoft, which is potentially the only party that's available to acquire something of this size with with with regulatory concerns, and if you've got tiktok on the other side there, obviously desperate from a seller perspective. So valuation short plays part of it, and then strategically if you think about the ability to go ahead and integrate. Integrate technology into the Microsoft Stack statues getting a free look at not only can potentially accelerate growth drivers of his existing business. He then has a free call option on expanding the total addressable market to go ahead and think about competition versus facebook getting snap. It's ever
Leading Ladies: Anna May Wong
"Alot from wonder media. Network. I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia will Manteca. Today we're talking about the first major American movie star. She openly criticized racist typecasting her accomplishments were groundbreaking and many of her critiques still. Ring true today. Let's talk about the prolific Anna. May Wong. Anna was born in Los Angeles in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five. Her birth name was Wong lead song. She initially attended a majority white school but transferred to Chinese school to. Escape racism she. From her classmates. Anna often skipped class to check out nearby film sets pushing her way to the front of the crowd to get closer to the cameras. She came up with Anna May Wong as her stage name by age eleven. And she was fourteen when she appeared in a silent picture, caught the red lantern. At Seventeen, Anna played the lead role in the toll of the sea one of the first movies and color. Anna's most notable early role was in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, she played in the hit movie the thief of Bagdad. Though. This part was a stepping stone for her career. It's also emblematic of the problems with Hollywood casting that Anna would soon after vocally advocate against and interviews. In the thief of Bagdad, Anna played a treacherously in a subservient role wearing very little clothing. Anna appeared in more than fifty films throughout her life and she often struggled with subservient. typecasting Hollywood also repeatedly granted lead Asian roles to white actors and cast actual. Asian. Actors. As villains. After working in the United, states for several years, Anna had had enough of Hollywood's biased casting. So she moved to Europe. Europe was more receptive when it came to Anna's acting ability. She started films throughout the continent with reporters praising her transcendent talent. One notable appearance was in the British movie. Piccadilly in nineteen twenty. Nine After a few years in Europe and a decided to give Los. Angeles. Another shot she appeared in the famous nineteen thirty two movie. Shanghai Express opposite. Marlene Dietrich. I must confess I. Don't quite know standard respectability that you know newborn how But Hollywood hasn't really improved. It's racist casting methods. Anna, auditioned for the lead role in the gutter. A film based on the novel about a family of Chinese farmers despite Anna's film
Members Of The Class Of 2020 Face A Brutal Job Market
"Just. A few months ago college seniors could reasonably expect to graduate into one of the best job markets in history. Now, because of the pandemic, they've graduated into one of the worst generations when members of the class of twenty twenty half landed jobs, the experience is odd NPR's Berlin reports. Twenty twenty was shaping up to be a great year for Golden. DACA, he be the first member of his family to graduate from college not only that he was the Valedictorian of his school. Morehouse College. ATLANTA. But in March, campus emptied and classes went online and then the moment he'd been waiting for commencement it was postponed I wanted to give that huge speech onstage with my family friends and loved ones who made it very possible for me to go to it came to an abrupt end been expecting rites of passage and celebration. Instead he landed in the pandemic, it's been a really difficult transition you know and it's been one that's a mocking allies with. A lot of uncertainty. A lot of self doubt. Worst of all, his grandmother who was supposed to come see him graduate passed away in their native. Zambia. Despite everything, there has been a bright spot dako landed a paid fellowship with the governor of Illinois after four rounds of remote interviews. So I'm more on the fortunate side and a lot of my classmates in other individuals across the nation are is a very challenging time to be a new college graduate through pollock is a Labor economist with the job sites Ziprecruiter. So compared with fee labor market in February before covert hit, we have seen job postings for the entry level positions most popular among new college graduates fall by seventy three percent. But even though postings have plummeted, people are still landing jobs. So even in a crisis, there are companies hiring eighteen million jobs have been posted. On ziprecruiter since covert struck, what has changed dramatically is how those new workers get hired interviews or evolving from those zoom skype calls and now to virtual video platforms where you record yourself answering the questions and then send that video in yourself. So you have no interaction with a person that all the lack of face to face human interaction that's been one constant for Danielle Kaplan she graduated this spring from the University of Iowa, and moved in with her mom it's been fine. But with a lot of activity around the house, it was tricky for her to find a quiet place for job interviews. So I, feel like my interviewer singing a different background, every single time with them. You know this is a very difficult, but as it turned out, backgrounds didn't matter. So I will be heading to Kansas City to work at a startup in. So I'm really excited about it. Kaplan's excitement is accompanied by trepidation because so much of the last few months felt unreal even disembodied. This is a huge major life transition that I'm about to undergo and it doesn't feel that way. I've been virtually meeting people. Virtually getting an apartment. So nothing feels like tangible to me all that is about to change this weekend. Kaplan will load up a rental truck and moved to a new hometown. Kansas. City. There won't be anything virtual about it.

Chicago Blackhawks’ Dominik Kubalik named Calder Trophy finalist
"A record the podcast this week. We've seen some of the awards. Come down the pike. Including today's news that the calder trophy and Jack Adams award finalists are Quinn Hughes. Kelman, car and Dominic Kwalik for the caller and John Tortorella Bruce Cassidy and Elaine. For the Jack? Adams. Mike sold without a Jack Adams finalist. Kinda weird. He must not be nice to those broadcasters that given the time of day after skates something. A little, gruff or something, because honestly the thing about it. Is that like I? Don't know who kick out. For that. I'm really happy. Happy. Jesus I'm really happy. Cassidy made it I'm really happy. Cassidy made it because I feel like this award overlooks guys. That coach really good teams a lot. Yeah I think he's deserving of it, but I mean like. Tortorella did a great job in Wien. Yo You could point to and say there are tangible improvements. The flyers made under his watch I guess it might be. Even you know the guy you kick out for Sullivan, but I just I don't know Sullivan a really good job. This year I just wish I could have gotten into the top three.

More states halt reopenings as COVID-19 cases surge
"When the first corona virus cases appeared in Chicago back in January they bore the same genetic signatures as a germ that emerged in China weeks before. But HIS EGON Oser an infectious disease specialist at northwestern examined the genetic structure of virus samples from local patients. He noticed something different. A change in the virus was appearing again and again this mutation associated with the outbreaks in Europe and new. York City eventually took over Chicago by May. It was found ninety five percent of all the genomes that he sequenced. At a glance, the mutation seem trivial about thirteen hundred amino acids, service building blocks for a protein on the surface of the virus in the mutant virus, the genetic instructions for just one of those amino acids number six fourteen switched in the new variant from a D. which is shorthand for. Asset to a G, which is short for Lycene. But the location of that mutation was significant because the switch occurred in the part of the genome that codes for the all important spike protein. The spike protein is the protruding structure that gives the corona virus. It's crown like profile, which also gives its name the crown virus, and allows it to enter human cells the way a burglar picks lock. And Its ubiquity at this point is undeniable of the approximately fifty thousand genomes of the virus that researchers worldwide have uploaded into a shared database about seventy percent carry the new mutation, which is officially designated as D, Six fourteen g, but known more familiarly to the scientists on the front lines of this fight by one letter. G. G. Hasn't just dominated the outbreak in Chicago. It has taken over the world and now scientists are racing to figure out what it means. And how to stop it to of Our Star Science Writers Sarah Kaplan Join. Reported at least four lab experiments suggest that this mutation makes the virus significantly more infectious, although none of that work has yet been pure reviewed, another unpublished study led by federal scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory asserts that patients with the g variant actually have more virus in their bodies, making them more likely to spread it to others. The mutation does not. Does Not appear to make people sicker, but a growing number of scientists worry that it is making the virus more contagious. The scramble to unravel this mutation mystery embodies the challenges of science during the coronavirus pandemic with millions of people infected in thousands dying every day around the world, researchers strike a high stakes balance between getting information out quickly. And making sure that is right. The burglary analogy is when I found very helpful, because it really helps conceptualize what this virus is doing to our bodies, Joel likes to say that the coronavirus can be thought of as an extremely destructive burglar, unable to live or reproduce on its own. It breaks into human cells in coops, biological machinery to make thousands of copies of itself that leaves a trail of damaged tissue and triggers an immune system response that for some people for many people can be fatal, the so-called side kind store. This replication process is messy, even though it has a proofreading mechanism for copying its own genome, the coronavirus frequently makes mistakes. Those are the mutations. The vast majority of mutations have no effect at all on the behavior of the virus. But? Few genetic mutations could be more significant than the ones that affect the spike protein. That is the viruses lock pick the most powerful tool against us. The protein attached to a receptor on respiratory cells, called as to which opens the cell and let's the virus slip inside. The more effective despite protein, the more easily the virus can break into the bodies of its hosts, even when the original variant of the virus emerged in Wuhan China. It was obvious that the spike protein was already quite effective. But, it could have been even better. The spike protein for the coronavirus has two parts that don't always hold together well when you look at it under a microscope in the version of the virus that rose in China the outer part, which the virus needs to attach to a human receptor, frequently broke off equipped with this faulty lock pick. The virus had a harder time invading Ho cells. Studying both variations of the gene, using a proxy virus, in a Petri dish of human cells heireann show a virologist at scripts. Research found that viruses with the g variant had more spike proteins in the outer parts of those proteins were less likely to break off. In that research. The virus was ten times more infectious with that mutation. The good news is this. The mutation does not seem to lead to worse outcomes for patients, nor does it alter the viruses response to antibodies from patients who had the D variant? Suggesting again? This is great news that vaccines being developed based on the original version of the virus will be effective against the war infectious European strain. Identifying, emerging mutations allows researchers to track their spread, knowing what genes affect how the virus transmits enables public health officials to tailor their efforts to contain it wants therapeutics vaccines are distributed on a large scale. Having a baseline understanding of the genome will help pinpoint when drug-resistance inevitably starts to evolve. None of this unfortunately is a magic bullet, but experts say that understanding how the virus works will help respond better. Still, it's a race against time. And Right now. The virus is winning. And, that's the big idea. Here are three other headlines that should be on your radar. This Tuesday number one. US deaths are approaching one, hundred, twenty, five thousand. We expect to pass that number today and the total number of confirmed cases, here's top two and a half million amid worsening outbreaks in Florida, Texas and Arizona that are straining hospital capacity to the Limit Jacksonville, the largest city in Florida and the host to the Republican National Convention in late. August announced that masks will now be mandatory in public and indoor locations. Vice President Pence plans to go ahead with plan travel this week to Florida and Arizona, even though cases are spiking, but Arizona Saul another record, high and hospitalizations days after trump visited the state for a raucous indoor rally where almost no one more mask. Florida's Rolling Seven Day. Average has risen by one hundred percent since week ago. Trump's former FDA commissioner Scott gottlieb warned last night. Night that the surging number of cases could result in nearly half our country infected with the virus by the end of the year and overall deaths are likely to return to more than one thousand per day. He predicts in fact, the number two at the CDC, told the Journal of the American Medical Association yesterday that the US. has quote way too much virus to be. Be Able to contain it anymore and shoe cat said that we're no longer in a position like New Zealand or Singapore. South Korea, where new case can be rapidly identified, and all the context traced and people are isolated or sick and people who are exposed or quarantined, and that's how you keep things under control. She said instead. We have way too much virus across the country. Country for that right now. She described herself as very discouraged and added. This is really the beginning I think there was a lot of wishful thinking around the country that hey, it's summer. Everything's GonNa be fine, but she added that she seemed quote a lot of worrisome factors over the last week or so and added quote. We are not even beginning to be over this. And, we're seeing that on the front lines. Los Angeles County health officials have issued a dire warning in the last twelve hours that conditions are rapidly deteriorating in the nation's most populous county as the virus spreads quickly, officials are warning that both public and private hospitals in the city of angels may soon be overwhelmed leading to triage. One factor that's alarming leaders in southern California. Is that corona virus patients are crossing the US Mexico border to seek medical care. Now, a lot of Americans seeking treatment. But the head of California's Emergency Medical Services Authority describes the stream of patients crossing the border back and forth as quote pouring gasoline on the fire. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey pushed back his plans to reopen public schools and has banned gatherings of more than fifty people. He also has closed down bars, nightclubs, movie, theaters and water parks. All of which he recently reopened as we discussed last week warning residents that we can no longer be under any illusion that the viruses going away on its own other hard hit states, including Tennessee and Georgia have put in place new stay at home. Orders extended them. There are so many unsettling stories just popping up across the country that it's hard to keep up more than two hundred people in West. Virginia were advised yesterday to quarantine after possibly being exposed to the virus will working out at a gym. New Jersey. Governor Phil Murphy says plans to allow indoor dining or are going to be postponed indefinitely while New York Governor Andrew, Cuomo says his administration is reconsidering whether indoor dining can restart safely. New York City next week, which was going to happen as part of its phase three now this is a big blow for restaurant owners in the tristate region who've been preparing to reopen by hiring staff that they'd laid off and restocking their inventory as they teeter on the precipice of bankruptcy, a lot of that food may now need to be thrown away and Broadway's main theaters all said yesterday that they're going to remain shuttered until at least January and probably longer.
Oakland is considering housing its homeless on cruise ship
"City council of Oakland California says early next month they will consider it for postal by city council president Rebecca Kaplan she says let's bring a cruise ship into the Oakland court docket and house the homeless we could get up to one thousand homeless people very quickly on maybe the dumbest thing I've ever heard I was gonna say was the smartest thing I've ever I think it's a dumb because you get on a cruise ship how many people are going to fall over okay we're buying motels how much money is it cost him to turn on the lights in the water at these motels what's the difference city council president Rebecca Kaplan says we've done it after Katrina we had over eight thousand victims of hurricane Katrina on the cruise ships why not do it in Oakland sure hope this doesn't filter down the dragons are in the guys girls we don't have anywhere to go ahead

The Savory Steamer Aka chop it up. Cook it Down Aka. Wow Jordan Morris boy detective. This is what I like killing time with. Lots of nicknames. Yeah I wrote them. Took me forty five seconds. At least were congratulations man. That's that's really impressive. It's great you're finding ways to be creative. I love creativity Jordan metoo. Oh there is nothing I love more than created the only thing I can think of that I love more than creativity is possibly maybe lifelong learning a apparently broth or stock. What's the why the nicknames explain it to us? This is another another cooking adventure. I take it. I'm going to be clear. There's no payoff to this. I've just been making a lot of stock. You'd get a gallon ziplock bag. You know the big the big way you know what? I'm talking about the big boy. Yeah Oh yeah you know what I love would it would. It comes to Ziplock bags and I'm sorry. Do Derail your story. I Love Court. We never had court ziplock around my house growing up so I never thought to buy them. They were just never on my shopping list but then I think I mistakenly got some courts. These things are so useful they're useful. You could have a cucumber goes Grayton court capricious more so than sandwich size. And they're sturdy if you get the freezer style which were sure. Yeah little little label on their Jordan. I'm not ashamed to admit this. I just mind at the White House store nightwear. The Warehouse Store Warehouse. Sorry people who are even three years younger than we had maybe did grow up in California. Was that a regional chain. It might have been a regional chain. Might have been okay. What were you getting the warehouse? You were getting you could rent movies. Yeah there was a thing the big thing was you could bring in five CDs any five CDs and trade them for one CD right right. Yeah and Yeah and I think and then you could also purchase the CDs people had brought in and those were one of two three CDs. It was they were either a added up the best of the violent fans. The Romeo Plus Juliet Soundtrack. And of course. The JERKY BOYS. This is all the warehouse sold. There was a warehouse warehouse l. Slogan was where the warehouse. Yeah so there was a warehouse warehouse and I know this it was like a discount warehouse and I know this because like a Nordstrom rack situation like you could copies of the Romeo plus Juliet soundtrack that were slightly irregular or the Jerky Boys Solo albums for the rights. When jerky boys broke off like kiss to make solo albums good without the makeup. But I don't know enough about either to continue this riff I. I had a girlfriend in high school whose parents had significant mental health issues. I'm not having a laugh at their expense. It was quite difficult for her family but her father was a bit of a hoarder and he would come home with ninety nine cent. Vhs tapes from the Warehouse Warehouse Into. I don't remember what it might might have literally been called the warehouse warehouse and just just every every wall in the corridor was lined with VHS tapes. And on the one hand. I didn't have to live there so easy access to pretty much every VHS tape whether it was Indiana Jones and the last crusade or the Young Indiana Jones chronicles and you know knowing the warehouse and the era. You probably also had more than one copy of that video where all the cartoon characters teamed up to tell you not to do drugs exactly so many so anyway I have one of these gallon ziplock bags right and I keep it in my freezer. And then when I have trimmings I put the trimmings in the air and when there's bones owes I put those in there and when it's full I put that in a stock pot and boil it off baby man. That's at sounds amazing. What are you using the stock for to thicken up a chilly Or Thin Chilly. I would say probably. You're probably going to want to use Masa to thicken it chilly. I'm using it for everything. Here's the secret Jordan. You get yourself some of these again. I hate to use this as a platform for marketing. But it's a product I believe in you. Get yourself some of these semi disposable. Glad wear tupperware's yeah. There's a great probably great for the environment but man oh man or those convenient. Yeah I love I love breaking one and not feeling bad about it. It's just the greatest feeling in the world like it only cost me a quarter and I use it ten times. Yeah it sure did I forget about the Tahini two months ago. It is the grossness washing this going to be more than twenty five cents worth of grossness. Exactly I got. I got a few at big lots of the other day. I was feeling grace so fill up. I'll take this stock. I'll fill up some of those pack them up put them in the back of the freezer. That way it's always ready when I need to make soup or anything else stock heavy and then get a load of this Jordan. Here's Tim I won't I'm full. I don't have don't have room. Don't you dare refuse me Jordan. I will I have an extra ice cube tray a third ice cube tray in which I pour into which I pour stock So that I've always got stock if I need to D- glaze a pan or view.

Our guest on this week's Jordan Jesse goes a beloved stand up comic. He's got a brand new record. Called Mike Kaplan Aka. Please welcome Mr. Mike Kaplan I mike. Thank you so much for having me and Now I have so much to say about so many things that you've been sharing like number one. If you ask me what they sell at the warehouse store I would have immediately guest warehouses. You know I don't know what other. Why would you call your store that you know you go down to the record store? What do they have there like? They have records at the warehouse store today of warehouses at the records. So we're having fun already and Mike. The hold on hold on. I'm having a blast. Yes wait until wait until you hear this Mike. It was spelled w. h. e. r. e. Oh no W. H. H. O. U. S. E. So one can only presume. It sold wears. This changes. Everything for me. I retract all of my previous. I think it was just fun but I will. I'll just take this time to do one final joke about it and say that oh. I thought it was actually a man that turned into a House. Just once a month you know just was a warehouse. Where sure I'll I'll take my indignation off off record but off mic off air. I don't know how things work I it's bad cast. You can't hear the listeners do I but this is a more sincere thing that I want to share that I appreciate is now we have. We have all we've interacted before but we're not. We have not planned what I'm about to say and I know that whenever whenever I see like a magician talking to a person in the audience who I don't know and they say now we've never met and the person confirms that I'm like well if they had met and this was set up that's also what they would say so. Yeah but the point here is. This isn't carefully planned own thickly crafted like my list of nicknames earlier no but it's what I'm about to say is one hundred percent about your list of nicknames so I think for sure if we were trying to throw people off the case like I don't know I don't know what people believe anymore. I JUST WANNA say. Thank you for just repeating the title of my album over and over in between each one of Your Nicknames Aka Aka Aka Aka. That is the name the name. Mike is of course on the album. Cover the out. That is the artist. Who CREATED THE ALBUM AKA? It is certainly confusing in a way. Because usually as you did the name will then be followed by AK and then another name however in this case the name Aka is itself an Aka for the original title of the Album which is what Aka stands for Aka all killing aside which we decided not to call it in these times for reasons that without the context that the album is about kindness. Compassion love and not. Murdering people might be like all killing aside. Why are you putting aside like in this time of suffering and uncertainty and disease and and death like what? Is this like that old joke about like Mrs Lincoln other than that? How was the play like so? That's why I talked to my mom. And she said how about all kidding aside. That would be a nice name and that does take some of the kidding aside. So that's why we went with AKA. It stands for all the things that we want the thing all all killing aside all kidding aside also known as it's also my name Mike Kaplan Aka and I do apologize for doing this sort of asked me anything about my name. Given Michael Adam Kaplan this has been an Aka ama the out the eighth of May thank you so much for having me Is that how to podcast. No it's already done. Thank you so much for having me. We just there's two. There's two albums we just WanNa make sure our listeners. Checkout One of course Aka from the very hilarious Mike Kaplan. I actually checked out some of the preview tracks on Apple Music today and I thought they were very funny. I can only imagine that the whole album is as funny if not funnier. See check out that. And then of course the soundtrack to Romeo plus Juliet that Baz Lerman's Tawdry reimagining of the classic with music from the Gins and others. Oh yeah that. Let's say silver cheer. Can I tell you that that song I think that one in in there by the CARDIGANS is it? The love me. Love me like famous song or whatever whatever that song was yeah I this was kind of in the in the era of soundtracks where you put out a CD that was inspired music inspired by the movie and it was like beside side or something like that so I guess it was probably not the hit but I could be wrong. Five hundred miles. I'm going to be by the proclaim. Irs plus like an Leah beside where the anchors of any soundtrack album possibly a ballot by aerosmith a new ballot by Aerosmith. Yeah maybe maybe something peppy by seal just WanNA seals happier tracks. He did he have any peppy tracks. Is that have you ever heard the album? Seals Roller Disco Party. Does it have Only the two songs that I know on it kiss from a rose and whatever the other one is that those and bounce rock skate Oh okay. Seals Roller Disco Party. Also doubles as the Soundtrack to the faculty starring George Brewster Fanta Johnson. If I'm CA- Jensen L. I think Bubka Jensen is faculty. Oh I'm sorry I the faculty. The faculty starring Gust. Yes in the faculty. My favorite movie of the time was probably meet. Defunct GOES I. It's something I think it is. I think it's a podcast. I just WANNA say sincerely though. It is an honor to be playing. The Part of Mike Kaplan Aka go on this podcast already. So you so you don't remember the warehouse now but I think you are about our age when you were a kid. Where did you go for like you know movies and music and other like teenager stuff Let's see I grew up in New Jersey. I would for. Maybe this is early to. Kb toys for toy. I would go to now. What are we talking here Mike when you're going to KB toys? Are you getting a? Is it a Ninja? Turtle is it certainly had Ninja Turtles. I did not have GAC. I didn't wasn't a big slime fan I did. I would take like toy of slammer from the ghostbusters. But that toy was not itself slimy a visual representation thereof. I I do the secret. Wars Marvel action figures. I had a bunch of those. Your your spider. They all have shields. That was a weird thing like captain. America had shield and also baron Zemo and Spiderman and Wolverine. Why.

"Running from library library grabbing books. Yes what are you reading currently Mike? What a fine question You know what I was actually doing on the thirteenth of March is relevant. I was weirdly on a cruise performing. Oh No I went on the cruise on the seventh of March pre pandemic and then he was all like oh. They took a lot of care to be like you know. Don't you know we did elbows? Instead of shaking hands with people that that was the stage it was that and there was a lot of hand sanitizer but the it was the Joko crews. Are you familiar with Jonathan Colton? It was I mean they've been doing it for ten years and they have all these amazing performers podcasters comedians musicians and authors like Scifi gaming. Like this big compassionate Weirdo community and one of the writer of the authors. I'd never heard of before was a sci Fi writer named n Que Jemison. I've now since heard her name in a childish. Gambino Song that came out on the new album that I think is fantastic. It came out in mid March But so she has. I think she's the only person who's won the Hugo award which is a fancy sci-fi award like a big. She's one of three times in a row three years in a row and one of the other sci-fi Hugo award winners on the boat was like yes. She is the best sci fi writer of our generation. And so I've been just in the past year getting into Ursula Gwynne. I've been reading tons of her stuff. I love the Lathe of Heaven I'm reading I've got a bunch more slated I read kindred by the Butler and he's like you should check out N. K. Jemison so I'm reading on my computer so I don't know the I think it's the fifth season is what it's called it. Whatever it is. It's the first of her trilogy of Hugo Award Winning Book so I love it. I recommend it joy the crews as well I did. It was Fantastic to perform perform. Maybe like the second night and then there were a few other things that were like thunder due to participate in and just like workshops all day and like Comic Book Authors. Like Matt Fraction. Kelly conic like doing workshops and panels and was Vince. What am I gonNA keep my favorite musician now? What is his name? It is Vance. Gilbert is amazing musician that I'd seen in the nineties and then didn't see again until this cruise and he has a force of beautiful music and so he performed and performance workshops. And I the Yes. The answer is yes. I had a fantastic time on this cruise and was also thrilled to get off of it. Go home and then never leave again. Mike Two things that advanced. Gobert has been on this. Very show twice My wife and I danced. Our first dance was to events Gobert Song. What's on a song called high-rise a beautiful ballad? A beautiful one is It's it's can't believe that I have for you. Know I knew him and had his music playing in the nineties in my experience and then two decades without him and now he's back and I think about him frequently. I had him on my podcast. He played a couple songs and and just talk. He's a man he could a check. It Dude agreed hundred hundred. Really Funny Funny Dude. Yeah Oh yeah. I believe he's been tonight though it's Monday or you're doing it every Monday night. He's does his Pajama Pyjama shows. And he Tonight a he's doing nothing but sad songs so that sounds fun See with that is My question for you before we get to. Elliott's a trivia answer But it kind of came up. Organically my head on this. Some comedy clubs are opening the reopening. What will it take for? Mike Kaplan Who Does the road quite a bit for you to get back on the road? When will you be comfortable doing so? That's a great question and I think it really depends on like a lot of other information and obviously if there's a vaccine all every and most people have had it or if enough testing has been done to know that. Oh these people like the majority of people have had. Maybe we've got. We're heading towards herd immunity. Maybe we know that a lot of people got it a symptomatically. That would be great. If it's already happened for more people so I mean it certainly. I imagine people knowing that I'm coming from New York City will have a higher bar for wanting me to be there so like right now. I remember I had a show scheduled for April twenty third in Connecticut. And so they're like. We're not doing anything April. You want scheduled again for like June or July and like these sound like made up times. Why not? Yeah put it absolutely June and then we'll make it September and then we'll make it like I've I've really acclimated to like well. I guess I'm I'm here and I'm glad that I recorded an album last year that I'm excited to be telling people about it. Now that that there was a time you know billions of years ago so it it'll be like a such a bonus to get to to actually perform in a room with people again. I've heard that some places are like they'll have six seats apart for people at first. If that's the way it's GonNa be for myself I guess. If there's there's a back entry you don't have to touch all the people like it'll depend on. I guess the how seriously the places are taking it. And what the what? The newest news from science and culture is you ready. You're listening to science over White House. I mean I guess listen to it all but yeah I would say judge for yourself and yes. The answer is yes sciences. A big big fan big fan science says is my new new game. I like to play and you're having a good time with that game. Oh Yeah like I ingest bleach inject leach into your back up science. Didn't say that's your science says. Put a mask on okay. Yeah Mike. I don't know if you're doing that bit on stage but I would recommend Working out on that Nowhere club this Friday. You know legitimately. I thought it right before we started recording. And I'm like this is. This is the time a good bit by bit. I'm willing I'm working on you know in. In addition to the shows that I'm doing to help spread the word. I'm writing some pieces for like different magazines or things that are like. Hey we'll write this and so I'm trying to come up with my top. I'm top five like meditation. Apps and guides and things that I use and so I would start. I just just starting to write it. I'm like oh. Meditation like science agrees like no magic agrees. The Wu community the empirical community. So I literally just wrote down like science says do it. I'm like Oh that's fun. That kind of sounds like so. I'm grateful to be here. Who says comedy can't happen without an audience so I appreciate it? Mike happening because the great new album out. I Soon Great Dr Mike. Always Terrific Aka is what it's called. You can get that of course preorder it comes out on Fridays. The best of luck gun Listening to that during these hard times. Elliott Gimme your Trivia. Answer please all right at the risk of infuriating both you and Matt. There's this is the only time that this very short story would ever be appropriate. We were talking about amber grams. And I guess I'm kind of showing off a little bit but I once had a client who I made a business card that was kind of an Amber Graham. It was his English name in one direction. And when you spun the card around it was his name and Japanese and the other direction. That's awesome actually really cool. That makes sense. That's that's when that's when that should be used so that you can do something cool like that just because like because you asked me a question and I refuse to answer it but It's all right. I only my experience I actually before I I thought I like daddy but it just occurred to me. The client wasn't the dread pirate Roberts was it because so now I'm going to have good only in one direction. That's right and the other direction and said Wesley all right. So here's my answer and has probably zero surprise. I did come up with this on my own. It was not because Gary said it. I also said let's make a deal. You win again. I love the Omani. Haw It's on the air again now with Wayne Brady as the hotel. They thought he was Monty Hall. By the way on. T. Hall like Tom. T hall and like Monmouth.

Go get I'll be right back all right so we got to with That is let's make a deal Of course as As the Great Monty Hall as and it's on right now with Wayne Brady and Jonathan Mangum. Jonathan is a really great guy and Wayne Brady on that show too so I met him once and he was also great John. My point is Wayne. Brady's Dickhead that's what I'm getting at. Elliot I met him once he was a prick maybe a nice guy. I don't know anything about Wayne Brady. Had A bad day could happen right yeah. I don't know it's unfair. Exactly right people have bad days Matt. Check in with you as we get a bad days. you gotta be having Right I know that you usually have to spend the fourth of May Out and about in in your costume.

"Hear one person. I think that's fair right. We can is the guest guest. We have we ever gasoline. Have we ever? Maybe the microphone of the show is Mike and I'd be honored honored to be iced and the long story very long. I have done those shows and I do. I do feel it does feel like doing something like doing them. It's almost like doing nothing but it does feel like something in these times. Have you done the ones where you can get paid? Oh yeah there's there's a whole a whole spectrum like sometimes they like put your on the screen. Sometimes they collect money themselves. There are tickets. I am on the day of my album release. This was not a setup I like. I like that. Magician sometimes are like no we've never met before and they. Yes that's I'm like if you had if it was a setup you would you would lie like how does this? We're not swearing on a Bible. This is not you could lie in court as well anyway so I do have a show on. May Eighth the day that my album comes out at the nowhere Comedy Club and these are folks that are getting a nice audience experience so you buy a ticket you look. Mike Kaplan Nowhere Comedy Club and you can be in the audience. You're laughs may be audible. I may hear them and know. That comedy is still a thing. I mean the my only concern is that I've been doing so many shows without worrying about an audience. Like what happens when they're back and so you. Have you seen any of the newer comedy club shows yet? Or are you going in blind on this? I've participated in other shows that these folks have been have been running where they've had the curated audience. It's IT's Steve. Hostetter and Ben Glebe and Chris bowers are like the comedy juice oriented. They're they're they've got. They've got a show where they just you know they have guests have comedians. And you know. Just joke around. And they've really fostered a nice audience a nice community like everybody's it's kind of like a comedy show in general in the past and the before times would be like. Hey everyone I'm going to. I'm going to as a comedian. I'll say things and then you agree to listen and the goal is for you to laugh involuntarily like it's like it's a weird thing if you sort of explicitly say what's going on but it's even more like that now this mindful like this just Intentional like Compassionate Group of people that are like okay like comedians need us. We need them like. Let's all pretend for a little while until it's real like it seems it seems artificial but like the the seed of what what everyone's desires are is really meaningful. You know what that's the best explanation I've heard about it and I- stolen over. It's right for me because I do this. And then I got enough outlet here but Do what you just described that Mike Better than anybody else's Done it where. Yes dotage fun. No I think I don't know if we need a whole new theme song but I think I just got nice by Jimmy but in my rap name is an ice cube so for Nice Nice Babe Vanilla. All of them. Everybody about you.

"So much Yes everybody's clear also. Mike is If you got the video you could see the Mike is He's got the The cove hairstyle going on the many are dealing with Eyebrows have never looked more groucho than they do. At the moment you got through those you already the specialist for that right do you. I'll tell you one hundred percent like Jimmy. I always love talking to you whenever I come into the studio now. I have new sneakers on because of one time. You said something about my not new sneakers and it's good. It's good to buy new sneakers once in a while. And here's the thing. I'm wearing long pants that are actual like I would dress in these four work to go out to do comedy. I'm doing comedy work right now. I've put them on and the eyebrows. The only reason that I have the eyebrows that they haven't been trimmed in not only the quarantine but months and months beyond. That is my girlfriend who I live with. Who I love. And who is the person who I CARE? Most what she thinks of my appearance. And my my whole life really. I care nothing for what any of you think. Loves these eyebrows. I don't think she's trying to repel other people by keeping like an armor of eyebrow around me. She loves old man Jewish eyebrows. They can actually. I can pull them to beneath my i. And they're just they're they're they have a life of their own almost their characters in our lives. They're turning into butterflies. Almost there look. I go the barber and I'd say give me a haircut and they're like and for sure you want us to those i. It's not even a question. There like wants to cut those eyebrows. You do want us to and I say unfortunately my wonderful girlfriend who I mean. Fortunately she has an aesthetic of visual beauty that she she has for herself for our home and for me and so these eyebrows are courtesy. Rini Voskresensky that's her name. The name aimed at the salon that you were going to. Well Mike I honest to God. If you said Mike Kaplan join a you and you and I didn't know that you just popped up on the screen. I may not know what you you are. You are very much into sky's with that thick billed thicker than I've ever seen it The the eyebrows again. Our groucho like nature. And your hair looks professorial. Guy Professor. Who didn't have time to shower before he came to class? I've been doing too much preparation of the information for the class. I think it's much more important to get that out there. Where we're trying to solve this virus you know. I don't have time to shower and wash the virus off of my body right. Thank you professor. Your hard work itching my arm and a way that I've never done reaching over and away awkward and weird. I like Mike Mike Mike Mike if if if Judd Hirsch lost eighty pounds is our other people. Happy with that. You just took a big swipe across all Judaism Judd. Hirsch is a good looking guy who's done well for himself. Why not be compared to him? I think jeter is a good looking guy and The only reason I have to say that is because everyone thinks that maybe I don't think that the movie somebody I bring it up but once every three years on the show I bring it up. What's the movie with Oversee Christine Lahti and River Phoenix into families on the run running running on empty. You ever see that movie. I've not seen that look. I don't know if it holds up but I remembered loving it. I remember thinking it was terrific. Is You're right about that Garin. Yeah yea so Jimmy. Your recommendation is if I could see that movie many years ago as You. I will love it absolutely that place in your life. You don't watch last night you know we. We're doing a courtesy of the cocktail. The video library. We watched city slickers last night. I still love it. I still think it's a great movie. I bought it. I enjoy it. I got choked up when I was supposed to. I laughed when I was supposed to be very very much enjoyed it. I haven't seen that in years. I might be a good reason to sit down and watch it but I know from US. Unsealing it here that you haven't watched it on. Blu Ray I have. I have a secondary blu-ray. Now my I'm asking you and I'm not kidding you to go to the kitchen pull out a knife and jammed into your fucking got to you. Have to cities liquors BLU rays in possession. I I have sold the other one when I when I received this one that Jimmy has. Yeah this is a new re a new release special edition with all sorts of bells whistles. This has your choice of covers. If you WANNA flip the cover around. You could have a different cover if if you display your DVD's you know cover. I cover front opposed to the spine. You don't face out your DVD's I don't face about. I do face out the one that we're currently watching because that's how I let stands nicely on the shelf. Do you have an end cap in your house. Your view of new releases staff picks. I don't like when like movies that are just I mean. City slickers is. But it's it's just a Hollywood comedy Not to belittle that. But it's not a fancy the I don't know why you need to do a special edition. Fancy thing like Reminds me of I love the princess bride and and I'm not trying to Degrade the princess bride but again. It's fairy tale action adventure comedy. Whatever you WANNA call it. It's all the genres and one thing. That's why it's special. But they they put out a BLU ray and the cover they like. I don't know who they hired to make this cover. But they made a new cover that the the the the name the princess bride the the it was written. They designed a font to write it. So that if you turn it upside down it's still says the princess bride which is undeniably cool. But what the hell does that have to do the princess bride who cares? I don't need to turn the princess bride upside down and be a bubble bewildered by the results. You don't have an end cap. So what's the point? Oh No thank I want. It's great to be able to see everybody and and also here everybody. Those are the two things that I like about format and so in addition to that I'll say met so I understand the princess bride city slickers. Fine movie what movie do you think is a Mar? What does what? Yeah Yeah Okay so well in my mind it would be something that's like. Remember the movie Pie Yes That's a movie that's like. Inter or like inception like a movie that like the plot and the construction of the film itself is into intricate and and elaborate and fancy and that would make sense for the cover of that to be like. Oh look at this. You turn this way and it still says that for inception you. Just keep opening differ. Fox's within boxes within boxes until eventually you get.

"Known since your audience is young adult. Do you feel responsibility with the messages of your films or is it the other way around where the audience is telling you what they want. And you're giving it to them. We try to learn and listen to what's going on pop culture and I used to watch as a kid. Jeffrey Katzenberg is friends with his son. David and Jeffrey would never stop reading. It'd be the New York Times directly in Time magazine. And so I think if you stay close to pop culture of what's really happening then you have a chance to kind of develop your projects in the right direction. I'm definitely not the one choosing. I'm just trying to be a good listener. So then. How does that affect the way? You develop your films. Something that I really connected with but wanted to show in a different way which we did in the script as was is a lot of voiceover expedition to get out because you have to understand how the characters feeling and I think young people especially or so in their head especially nowadays you have social media and like someone's having a party and you're not invited and how much that would probably hurt kit. So he said. How do we do that in a way? That feels unique and as silly as it sounds. I remember thinking back to that movie. Drop Dead Fred when I was a kid and this imaginary friend comes out so we said well what have large and to all the boys actually has these guys in her room and she's talking about and so that it's almost like we're getting her anxieties out but you get to watch the scene. But of course they're not there so I think those kind of fun devices can often be a fun. Extra element add so. How much of the film did you develop new scenes for versus? How much did you pull from the buck? We tried to stay true to the book. And of course not. Every scene in the book can make it to the film in either scenario but we took creative license in aesthetic moments. And I think in some of the Laura jeans anxieties in terms of how we visually show them but other than that like we try our hardest because again credits Jenny Han. She wrote books. That were beloved. Are you an all surprised to see how popular your content is with even demographics that we in the industry can refer to sometimes as sixty five just this side of dead? It's all over the board. Yeah it's funny I kinda got a lot of firsthand experience in my life from from friends and people around me that were on like those. Cw shows and you'd always think they were like twelve year old kid watching it and in reality it was like a thirty five year olds or forty year old mom of two and so. I think there has been something fun to watch of the reaction that it has kind of brought people back because I think again as I said like. We went through ten fifteen year period where these moods working made and so a lot of people in the thirties and forties still. Remember those John Hughes Movies and it's still fun to watch and he surprises along the way chorus everything I think to all the boys was a surprise. I think of course we're passionate what we're making and I loved the book and I love the idea of telling a Korean American girls story as she was going through this fun adventure but did I think it was going to become what it has become. I had no idea. Can you spell any secrets about three? I'll say that I think we really want to focus in the third movie on large gene and her growth. She stumbled into the situation because her sister sent out the love letters in the first one she had to deal with it in the second one she had to kind of deal with her past her present and the anxieties about her future and the third movie. It's about what do you want and I think we all kind of start to grow up and make choices and then you've got to figure out yourself so we really wanted to focus on Laura Jean. Her needs her discovering herself. In a way that was not just about the poison. Learn from your movies. I think I learned how to become a better filmmaker. Each movie we make. I think God I made some really bad decisions early on in my career but I take a lot of pride and trying to find great mentors and learn from our mistakes and every time we make a movie or developed the script I think afterwards we have a post mortem to understand why we think that character connected. Or what choices would we have made differently in and then it's like listen to your audience. It's really fun to be able to have made the second to all the boys and to see some of the feedback and most of it is positive but the parts. That aren't positive. I want to deliver on that for the fans. I think it's a huge responsibility for all of us that we want to do right by these Uber Fans. Thank you Jenny for joining us today and Matt.

They sit seven points at a third place in the central four points out of the last wildcard all cards spot in the western conference or thereabouts. They've got a few games in hand on the teams they're chasing. They're one of the best five on five teams in hockey. Both puck possession and scoring a team with a positive goal differential. You don't often see that for teams outside the playoff bubble and yet their coach Peter Alavi let feels the cold steel of the axe falling. He has.

"There's another shock. Wave moving through the hockey world and the high ranks of the NHL Today as more stories. Emerge of coaches. Allegedly mistreating plays the hockey world. It is grappling with a series of allegations that threatened to upend the game and its culture. Several players have called out abusive behavior from coaches dividing teams and fans. Today the inside story of a sport. At a crossroads I mean it's Thursday December for fifth this is espn daily presented by Dell. Small Business Emily. Take me back to win. This story initially started developing what what happened at first while Mike Babcock is the coach of the Toronto Maple leafs and he's the highest paid coach in the League. Emily Kaplan covers the NHL FOR ESPN but his team was underperforming driving like crazy and so on November twentieth actually fired and then afterwards we start to hear some stories being reported in the Media About Babcock's coaching tactics specifically how it could be psychologically ethically abusive to some young players. Babcock was alleged to have asked one of the leaf rookies to list the players on the team from hardest working. And there's one incident that was really damning about Mitch. Marta when he was a rookie babcock had MARNA right down every player on the team and said who is at least hardworking. And who's the most hardworking. The rookie did so not not wanting to upset his coach but was taken aback when Babcock told the players who had been listed at the bottom of the list babcock wet behind his back and told all the rest of the players that barter told him about in confidence. Did it seem at the time like this was a discreet one off incident. It totally did. And that's where things kind of took a turn. Five.

Let's start the show proper shelly is to your your buds a podcast about hockey featuring things to do with hockey from your friends at Espn it's espn on ice with Shitski and Kaplan it's ESPN and ice but yes for ESPN talks about hockey I'm grateful NHL Writer I'm Emily Kaplan National Nhl reporter indeed you are so today the big finally get some actual hockey news talk about other than like injuries and stuff the Nashville predators call the press conference today like everybody be at the arena like eleven thirty 'cause we got a lot of things to talk about Oh what could it be could it be everybody knew immediately was the Roman you'll see extension eight years the Max nine point zero five nine for number fifty nine on the for this contract making Roman Yo see the third highest paid defensemen via the CAP heading into next season behind only Eric Carlson Andrew he is twenty nine currently will be turning thirty on June first of next year so emily we think of this contract firstly after talk about this trend this is the NHL trend. I feel of the last eighteen months when you sign a new contract it has to have some owed to your Jersey number in it and it's just ridiculous to me it's too cutesy it doesn't make any sense I don't know if the players leaving money on the table I'm not the team is like besides looking cute and a press release what is the purpose I will say this as well kind of a beat trend when you consider that Wayne Gretzky's numbers retired or all around the league and no one can ninety nine ninety nine it'd be the number I would use if you're going to pull the contract mullarkey that's for sure but I look I think that Roman Yosi over the last couple of years I've been one of the most consistent and best defencemen in the League he's a guy that we should be talking about enormous conversations probably over the next two to three years that's what level is at the most shocking part about it to me is the no movement clause because that is something that David Poile infamously does not give out here and Piranha or the only guys on the roster who have it and you mentioned his age he's about to turn thirty of this brings him to what thirty nine years old we're at a time where hey the blackhawks are playing the predators tonight on Tuesday recording this and we're talking about thirty four year old Brent seabrook halfway through his contract with a new movement clause that is looking pretty bad and getting scrapped for the second straight day and I don't think that Romeo who's on that same exact trajectory but we see why these things do become troublesome down the road right so doughty's contract was thirteen point eight four percent of the cap when he signed it trying to or Carlson's contract when he signed his this past summer accounted for fourteen point four seven percent of the cap and then Romeo Issues contract is eleven point one you percent of the cavs so greg numbers you get the sense that that's often couch come on what am I I always I always I was wave past math in high school I went in the back of the book copy down every a answer every lake odd-numbered question had the answer and then just a bunch of nonsense on top of it and hope that was right and if I was right like my goal was like a seventy five just get me through it did what I could so get degrees get the feeling that this this salary this is for the contract probably settles in around this much it's down from where the Romans camp was looking for they wanna like nine five it probably settles in around here because partially because of the trade protection that's that's a hell of a caveat from Poi- like you said and and because of it you know this this number on the open market is over ten I think for a defense of his of his vision Ilk we've been talking a lot about Albatross lately insofar as him being a Ufa and you know these kinds of guys don't become available when you look at a team like for apple like the Vegas Golden Knights like we've talked about for the things Golden Knights are loaded up front they've got a goalie they don't have a foundational defensive another Blue Line there's don't Roman he's one expert says one both these guys could have been available summer now one of them's off the market and you've got to pay for that so yes the term is frightening because like you said Brent seabrook cautionary tale right absolutely frightening term on this I will note that according to cap friendly the the contract is structured with all a bunch of signing bonus money in the first four years so all the way until twenty four when he'll be turning like thirty four right so that's just a little note little caveat no signing bonus money for the last four years and you know just there are ways to get around things but for the moment eight years over nine million dollars for one of the best defense in the League and the predators obviously if you look at the ages on that oster the next four years of very important this is like conspiracy Arizon- so I want you to be very excited that we're about to enter here David Toil notoriously stingy early in his career and make some bold moves sixty nine years old you be seventy on Valentine's Day this year do you think that maybe he's just lessening up some of his restrictions and comes to term Indo goofing clause because he realizes I'm probably not going to be GM what I'm eighty I think that is a I think that's a valid point I also think that there are some general managers who are maybe managed aging because they expect to be there for the next ten years and there are some general managers that are managing because they have been there since the inception of the franchise and maybe strike while the iron is hot strike while the iron is Matthew Shane Twenty eight Ryan Johansen twenty-seven Filip Forsberg twenty-five Bakhtiar Alberton Twenty Xr Ryan LS Twenty eight Roman still South Selva thirty echo himself thirty and one more year of Pepperoni like maybe that's how hot the ernest streak as much as you can at that moment I completely agree with you it's a short term play for David poile but why shouldn't it be I mean this is a team that is time to win within the next two to three years and if they don't then I don't know what the answer is I will say this is well I know we are dealing with very small sample size how good is that soon trade look for predators game exactly but they cleared out that salary and now you've got basically Roman Yosi making fifty nine thousand dollars more against the cap in two years then Sudan would've been making for you right and I know Matt Duchenne doesn't believe that it's a one for one and in that he was traded he signed essentially because PK Suzanne was traded but there is a correlation to that this is a team that kind of struggled with scoring last year and all of a sudden their offense looks fantastic and they've got a number to center for the first time in a while this is true now the Roman Yossi beat we published our first it's watch this week I don't think it's again when we do this it's kind of looking at it from the perspective of voters the voters would choose at this point it's not necessary really like what I think it's kind of like what we think the voters might go for John Carlson point total was catnip there's no way that he wouldn't win the Norris if the vote was today and it's not to say he's not a good complete defenceman it's just saying that twenty one points in his first thirteen games is catnip that's ED inside numbers and you realize he is Bibi second best defense minimus league bind our friend with the national predators we were just talking about yeah and I talked to Carlson last week now for my column and I asked him you know it probably feels weird for you your defensemen who's been very good in this league for some time and all of a sudden you you've gotta popping offensive numbers now wants to talk about you for the Norris like do you agree with that disagree and he's like look I understand there's this debate it's a debate that doesn't go away should it the best offensive defense mentioned to go to the best defensive defenseman but I think it should just go to the.

"But I will say I love getting my phone calls out of the way at like six thirty this morning and then being like ten am being like everyone on the East Coast at lunch I can chill flying is a backup and he's really worked out well for so that's how we go about it and we're not going to change to definitely get you know I'm sure I think he can get something more to it is there something is there something to the formula that we don't understand that allows the Bruins to be that good defensively year in and you're out who all I mean it started with cloud right that was his culture and and you know I was coaching in Providence we played similar styles so right away you're coming up you don't have to change a lot you know we we made some adjustments in the neutral zone to try to defend the new the Blue Line a little better because our de Corps got more mobile over the years but I think it's just inherent with with the the Z. and Burgi and to there are constant and you know so it's just part of the said the fabric of how we play here and I think that's a credit to the older guys they continue to buy in they understand but it takes to win I've always been a believer in good team defense we probably opened it up a little more here in the last few years offensively but we've tried not to lose that defense subside and I think for us it's all about our layers I think that's the big debate that I hear `bout defensive zone coverage anyway as layers versus man to man is a better style we've always been about layers and support and help and it works for us so I think dad probably why that consistently every year and and you know what we've been able to coach it over time so that the players coming up no it so it's not foreign to guys that maybe commodities you know come come from providence they're playing the same way so I think that's helped us a lot and that would be my take on it and like I said I think Bergonzi put a lot of value on playing with the puck so that they're not spreads down through the lineup last one from me last year's playoffs is a huge story with your team the injuries that Donald Charles sustained with broken jaw and at the time you know you have to be a little bit tight lipped about it I really did take off all the taste but you didn't want to get too much out there and you know for competitive advantage but now look back just what was it like behind the scenes of in everything he went through being able to come back and details you can share about you know just seeing him and how he persevered through it well he went in for Sir through the morning before the game and and we didn't see him that whole day and then you know we're we're assuming he's not gonNA play I mean we saw the damage it did to them like like everyone else I mean he's he's got to you know I don't know if that was revealed at the time that I know we talked about fractured teeth but two fractures in his jaw and I can't remember how I think we tried to you know obviously downplay that part of it that he's got metal plates in there and there's there's wiring in there so you know here's a guy that's first of all had surgery or major surgery he hasn't eaten and he walks in the restroom the next morning ready to go so I mean we're just first of all oh you know you're the guy that you know he's playing such a high level and with you know fitness level is so high already now he comes in with with that type of injury and wants to get out there and plays well so I I mean other than you know like I said simply you know just just odd to me that his his pain tolerance is obviously through the roof and then I honestly once the game starts forget about it 'cause you're you're you're in the moment right you're you're you're playing for the Stanley Cup so he's just another player there that you expect to do the job which is the great hockey mentality with most players have that are able to play that one and last one bruce and thanks for the time today man I was reading a story of our old friend Joe McDonald that year ticket collection concerts and this really cool story but one thing that caught my eye in it that you didn't really get into you said you have five to seven thousand hockey and baseball cards and your and this is as a guy who used to collect this fascinates me first of all do you still collect if not when did you did you stop and is there. one card in your collection either hockey baseball is like your your pride enjoy the one that you you say oh I can't believe this in the collection I'll work backwards Bobby Orr card I'm gonNA guess from boy like seventy two or three or somewhere in there because he's he's it's purple backdrop and he's he's he's got his White Jersey on I used to tape it in my room and he had all this trophies there that he'd won the you know the Norris the MVP The playoffs to heart you know And that was my the one I had for the longest and unfortunately now I know it's in my attic somewhere but I haven't come across it for jaws trying to find doc for that because he had asked me that is probably stop collecting around I'm guessing now twelve years old I was I had a paper so I started collecting around eight nine years old maybe fifteen you know something like that and it was years of full sets in there and my brother did it too he's a year and a half alert me so we kind of did it together so trading partner I think a lot of kids did we used to play that game it's like I don't know if you've ever even at school bring your your extras in you wrote a real good piece in your column on Monday about the changing equipment in the NHL you know so much of the game right now is being.

"Completely understandable and also not the fastest starter when it comes to his seasons either but gasket can ask for a little bit more about other Carlson is that so bad he's a minus nine right now through seven games and he coughed up the puck on kyle postal for check for sabres goal a really big sabers goal in that loss on Saturday I this is not Eric Carlson is cooked not air Carl's is not worth the money that's not anything about that it is can I get a little bit more at this point from Air Carlson yeah for me the biggest concern the sharks it's their back end and look the thing about Carlson is about the that they had to give up to get him and losing donskoy and Pavlovsky who really were big parts of that for a group and that was the depth that you were speaking on but defensively they're getting challenge and we know Martin Jones had struggle than he might not be the guy that you really wanNA trust but allowing three and a half goals per game you know you mentioned Carl's not playing great they've been without defense men who are more physical and I think they are back which is great but you've got like a guy like Tim he'd you just can't trust he's playing like six minutes the other night was benched that's not inspiring and I wonder if there's move because this used to be one of the best blinds in the lead to Finally the Saint Louis Blues now keep in mind about the blues the Cup champion took three two or three there's not really a point of concern at this point with the Saint Louis Blues except that their results have been middling and there are some games like their game against Montreal that are a little bit concerning when we do this podcast for doing it ahead of their gaming Colorado night which if they win I mean owns even it'd be tough point of concern but you know a little bit of a stumble out of the gate a little bit lacklustre in some areas Crepe Ruby just been inconsistent I think they've seen some really good performances and you've seen some not so good performances and this is a team that played its best last year when there was absolutely Oh expectations and they need to learn how to play with expectations and early in the year last year they didn't do that well and that's why we saw them plummet and this year again we're seeing them just look a little out of funk's but I'm not worried because y you know I never heard the phrase out of Funk's before one I'm here in California and I'm feeling Funky as bill and don't give complete funk's okay I liked it I'm keeping it I stand by my folks funkhouser right that's a California thing that's totally California thing I agree I think it's more of a consistency thing and fleet of much hockey as they have it's fine also again like the blues remind me of when the Kings made won the cup out of the eight seed and then like for the several seasons they're like we literally don't care about anything right now because we gave every ounce of everything we had for that no no it's more like we Kentucky in in the last playoff seed and won the cup so I'm not really concerned about this loss in October and I feel like if you're the blue it's like hey Bourbon we were the most unstoppable team on the planet from like January on Lake. We know that we can do that. I'M NOT GOING TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT middling results and plus gotten some points to it's not like they've outright law some of these games like other teams have but yeah it's just us some funk's all right this guy's not in a funk neither is this team Boston Bruins and coach Bruce Cassidy and he was kind enough to join us on the podcast and now joining is coach of the Boston Bruins Bruce Cassidy and coach we're about four weeks into the season I'm GonNa ask you a nice and light question how do you feel about your teammates now you know standings wise we're in good shape our game probably like most teams at this time of the year has lots of work to be done on it but you know we have a competitive groups who are in every game and so far we've we've got some good results I saw the Boston Globe recently had apiece calling for Dave pastern actively dropped from the top line to spread the wealth in the lineup and I've always wondered about you would you have a line that good how do you deal with I don't know the temptation to break it up verses knowing that it could carry you through a game that how do you how do you balance that with decision like that wall typically I'm not going to break it up until I'm comfortable with us the line he a we're we're pastas GONNA go to right now I'm David Krejci is out injured so he and he has good chemistry with him so it it you know I'm not gonNA draw them now simply because they don't often makes us better right I think you never know what you'll find l. but that's sort of the the first thing is it is it GonNa make you a better team by doing that automatically now not always convinced that is and just like the chemistry between those those three so how's it gonNA affect them who can go up there and sustain it and that's the next part of it they haven't found a guy to be able to go up there like Danton Heinen has gone up in spurts and done well but we've seen drop off eventually maybe he's a year older you're better you're stronger you're more amateur and he could handle it but until crunchy gets back that's probably not even in the cards right now and then we'll go from there so last year's playoff run too that one of the things that helped him he thought stealing a little fresher he didn't play as much last year and it really seems like you are giving the loaded between him and lock what is your philosophy towards L. Golly workload management you think this is the new trend in the NHL where you really do need to depend on two guys to have a winning club I don't know if it's if you have to we we do it that way because you know the data's told us that too there's a certain workload where you know over the years he's performed her and it's you know a lot closer to fifty games than it is sixty five or sixty two right so and the second part of it is we have a we have a really good back-up I mean we you trust them it started with who who is good for us and then Hawaii so you know part of it is that I mean it's it's great to have that in theory but if you don't you know you don't have confidence or your team doesn't have confidence and the guy going in you know thirty five times a year or whatever divided up to be then then that's a problem whereas we're lucky that way down he did a real good job identity at least sixty percent of the the starts but it's not going to be like like a typical seventy five or eighty twenty split that that some teams may do what they're number one and whether trends that way or not like I said I think it it could I think the Games it's harder on goalies I think that's why it's faster it's more physical around the net so I think their workload is is harder than maybe it wasn't passed as well I think for emily when I say that we both really enjoyed covering year clubs run through the Stanley Cup playoffs last year in particular because when you would speak it'd be very insightful you were a very interesting guy to hear opine and bring some some insight so what was happening with the during that run and I was wondering after it's over and after you get a chance to reflect on it are there any lessons that you've personally taken from that run insofar as becoming a better coach well thanks Greg I listen I've tried to be honest with the guys here the media I think it's just easier you know there's certain things that stay in house I mean that's that's tip with every team but you know we've tried to be open with what we're trying to do here I think our fans appreciated as well so most of all the players But what I learned I think was was you know the ups and downs of the play offs and how you have to stay consistent because I'm an emotional guy so typically during the year we lose a game you know there's a learning curve to it and you gotTa Kinda get better from it and I think in the playoffs almost got shut the door and just move on a lot quicker and I learned I haven't had a lot of places fronts and the National Hockey League so that was the biggest thing for me is to put the previous game you know behind you get ready for the next one get the players back to a good place and a lot of that's more positive energy sometimes than necessarily details video or structural stuff you know it's just you know what we need to be better in this area yeah but now let's feel good about our games so that that's what I learned personally whether you know the players took tonight or not I don't know but that's the one thing I did find out that they'd be ready for them next one so it is earlier in the NHL season but you've had a couple games I'm curious are there any trends you've noticed either the way teams are playing the way games are going that skills different the new I don't know if it's new but I find they're a little more wide open this time of year I think that's typical his most players are healthy lots of energy feeling good about themselves so you know they're skating well so the Games are fast Oh and now I would think in the next two three weeks guys will get a little bit banged up you see listen we're playing Toronto they're already down to virus right we're down crunchy so you start to see the the the players drop a little bit so then you gotta you know coach start getting a better feel for their team so they tighten up you know typically as what happened so but that's that's what I've noticed this year so far and then the top players are playing a little more early on I think coaches typically will run with them because they are healthy you wanna get points on the board so maybe that balances Selfo to as year goes on where you get minutes or a little bit more equitable amongst your you know your players but and I don't know if that's different than last year or not but that's what I've noticed so far this year and you know I gotTa tell you haven't paid attention a ton of the has to the league because we have some new players here in a few injuries so we're gonNA take care of our own business but in the short term that's that's what I've seen you're busy dude you get a pass on that one listen I love hockey so I watch games but I also got two young kids so I'm in a hockey rink and I'm on my way to one let's let's you know so that's Nice get away from the NHL and eight and ten year old sometimes there you go exactly what are the trends within these days there's one kid that's usually really good every team and you gotTa stop them that's what I noticed that is my daughter plays the youth soccer same same prince people always somebody who thinks Palay out there they ruin it for everybody well unless you've got the kid on your team right you've been in this bruins culture now for so long as looking at the stats so last two years bruins our third in the NHL and goals against average as the team you go back five years their second overall goals against average that's an amazing consistency given the ends in this league and the way that offense has exploded in the last few years and I think we all know the personnel Chara version on goaltending it's pretty easy to see why you guys keep the puck out of the net but.

Preface it by singles are two teams wrote about early so I just got the mixed up but yeah it was hurricanes throughout structuring the Tampa Bay lightning not those plucky Atlantic division leading stabers teams that are up to grade stores. It's an easy mistake other team that's not off to the best start in the eastern conference so they'll maybe inching potentially towards turning the corner is the Florida Panthers authors made a little

net presence he could help on the power play perhaps but just from a leadership perspective I know they brought in a lot of guys but it almost feels like a team you know Berkow is there captain and by the way amazing that they avoided major injury there it appears that he's going to plan your day and not miss time that is why I'm not as worried about them but I wonder if his your answer especially as experienced in the playoffs could help this team because you know this is a team that's always been on the cost but has never been able to get over the hump and I do think that they could use a centralized voice and I wonder if he can help chemistry there lot's been said about their start which was bad they've won two of three now bob to to to to across the board right now a four seven goals against average in an eight seventy two save percentage not the great wbob as we say on this show madmen gift vote no minimal time forever and this one is actually appropriate but I do think there's to be said for all the contributing factors too I'm getting off to a bad start new coach new team you defense new environment new weight of ten million dollars a season on his shoulders hopefully that's not a weight that continues to weigh him down there's a lot of sort of learning curve and then going on right now and it's it's not to say that this is going to be way it's GonNa be for him I think we've seen him play well I thought he ended up playing pretty well in a couple of their losses even a little bit of concern I think when you've you know bought on what you believe is going to be a franchise goaltender then see him be about roughly six and a half goal saved below average at this point in the season she rather sharks You know I was at the sharks game against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night got a chance to hang with the sabers a little bit for story with this week which means that you know I turn my recorder on and look at Ralph Krueger and said go and then my story was written the sabers first of all as a sidebar just a really team right now I think that the major miscalculation that we made with them to our is twofold one that Krueger could have transformed effect on that roster and to that you can afford to break up Jack Eichel Jeff Skinner Marcus Johansson's GonNa play as well as he does as a second line player for them and their big finding this offseason huge so understated and we get into with the with the Bruins and they're definitely with Bruce Cassidy in a moment but like you know removing him from the Bruins equation I think was an interesting thing that may have actually directly affected the way recoils play this year putting them on that that Sabres team you know the one thing about Johansen and I'm I'm not a big fan of his insofar as I think that there's a there's consists the issues dude knows how to play top talent I mean he cut his teeth in Washington playing with Nick Backstrom and Alex Baskin and to see the way he's played with skinner so far this season there's been one of the more impressive things for the Sabres and and you know obviously like we said good news for Jason Botterill because that's a guy that could use a couple of wins in the transactions category and bring it on Johannesson was a pretty smart idea unless they're fast they're so very a quick fast and you can see that there is a lot of pressure they put on other teams too it's it's it was impressive to see them live I feel like maybe I hesitate I hesitate to say this if I want to say I believe any buffalo team but the sharks okay so they're in trouble I'll be honest with you there's a nice little uptick when Marlowe came on as of right now they are three and five a season they have the same record as Los Angeles kings at this point in the season which is not what you ever WanNa see if you're sharks fan I'm I'm really learned about the depth on this team and when they made the marlow signing I think we both agreed that it's like a little bit of a Hail Mary a smart helmet very like a good percentage as Hail Mary but at least one one and it adds that guy out of the room it was a smart decision to add marlow at the end of the day like when he is one of your top right wings and the guy didn't even play right wing it's kind of a problem and the more you see the sharks team the more you understand that like outs you get past those top two lines and it's just you you're not even worried it's you don't even care like when you have a team like the buffalo resist role for at this point in the season and you look at the sharks and it's like well we're catarrhal he's off the ice well let's wait until it's back on you know it's like it's that kind of thing there replay lethal they're five on five play I think is a real real point of concern right now and I understand our Carlson's got a lot going on away from the Ice and and that is.

"kaplan" Discussed on A's Plus
"I'm Joe Garagiola from. It's all political. I'm trying to interview every Democrat running for president but that would take years. That's okay. We have a ton of great stuff to talk about. Listen wherever you get your podcast because it's all political hello and welcome to as plus the San Francisco Chronicle's podcast on the Oakland as and Major League Baseball. I'm your host chronicle. As beat writer Susan's lesser and today we welcomed as rookie catcher Sean Murphy who talks about his first couple of weeks in the big leagues all those home runs he's hitting and catching hey seuss Lazaros Major League debut then Jake Kaplan from the athletic and I talk about the Astros and as as rivalry and how it's changing and might change a little bit more all of that coming up next our guest today the eight plus podcast is rookie Catcher Sean Murphy Shun new to the big leagues. Do it looks like you're feeling comfortable. Did you feel comfortable right away. How long did take you I would say I said that I was really uncomfortable. I think it showed but you know I kinda once. I settled into that first game. I started feeling much better. you obviously get called up as the team is in a pennant race. Does that make any difference to your approach at all that kind of change your attitude the way you feel thanks yeah because you know if the team wasn't competing than it. You know why could go out there and afford to mess things up and try and get my feet. It would not worry too much about results but you know when a teams competing you know he. I don't have the luxury of going out there and screwing up signs and you know asthma scouting the reports and stuff like that and it puts you on your best behavior and your game. We'll was this like we're like for you. Overall obviously have the knee injury. Sorry in you have arthroscopic surgery and took a little time for you coming back. How frustrating was that. Were you worried at some point that you might not wind up getting shot in the majors this year of course certain times when you know you have your bad days and rehabbing don't feel very good your knees. Barton and you know but die the staff down Arizona his own an awesome job. I can't give them enough credit to you know how. They helped me Rehab in comeback as as quickly as I did you know I'm feeling as good as I am right now. So the shout out to them and you know everybody staying with me and you'll give me the chance to come back in for myself your knee injury did you encourage like one specific the big thing or was it kind of wear and tear that gradually you kind of start to notice so it was actually it was kind of both so. I had to play in Reno. It was a swing blown out out in front of the mound and I went to pick it up and I and my mic Lee got caught in the grass and now I felt it then and then they went into surgery and they're like well you kind of had a chronic meniscus problem in there on top of the tear so it was like two separate things had to go in and fix it was a little bit of both but who knows how long that other one was in there but yeah it was it was the more the Swinburne Reno that that did me said they win and they cleaned up some some stuff and then they did they repair the meniscus headed. What did they again. Yes they cleaned up a little bit and they kind of repaired it. it wasn't a full repair the described it in a way. I didn't quite understand but yeah. It was like eight to ten week week. Recovery is posted you know the four to six month the four to six week one so it was right in the middle and how do you feel now physically because I know the ice are being a little careful with your workload based on the fact that you did have the the knee surgery. I feel fine. You know I feel good out there. aw I have I I would say a hundred percent now. We've always heard so much about you behind the plate have have have you always concentrated on defenses that had come naturally to you. Is that something that you've had to work out. What's the what's been the hardest part for you behind the plate. As you've kind of been learning the position it's pitch calling for sure you know the physical part in the blocking and the throwing and all that stuff you know you can pratt all all day long but source pitch calling you need live reps and actual experience dealing with pictures and adjusting to hitters and that's the that's the last thing that comes as far as what you're comfortable doing in the game him and you know having having a veteran staff that kind of helps you walk through and guys at wwl they've seen the hitters. They know what guys they're going to. They give you an idea what you're looking for. At what age did you start catching because so many catchers you know who wanted to make in the big leagues like everybody else played shortstop for a long time. Did you transition at some point. No I've always pretty much been catcher. yeah. I was a small growing up and I couldn't really positions and I always liked catcher. 'CAUSE I was involved. The thought everything else boring so I've always kind of kind of gravitated towards catcher and then you go to write state and then wind up getting drafted by the as how much did you know I know about the as when that happened. Nothing really didn't know anything about 'EM. It moneyball about it said did you. I mean when when you met Billy Bean. Did she think like Oh this is. This is the money back at school. He's a movie about him and I think that's a it's a it's a coordination to be a part of the guys. Here are are are special. I think this is a really good group of players. Now you come up there a lot of guys that you've played with this year and some guys who played with her for a number of years particularly pitchers. How Fun is it for you to see a j. Tucker and particularly hey susa- lazardo comes in and makes his major the League debut here in Houston behind the plate. Oh it's awesome CNA Jay what he came back from was the tough and situation he was put it in and I think he handled it awesome about as good as you can. you know he was out. He did everything do he ate well. He worked out hardy. Put it all the hours hours and I think the the payoff is showing as far as how he's throwing the ball and Lozada's had to work through a lot this year to say no both those guys have kind of had had to lean on each other and I think that now that they're both here. It's it's a it's a cool moment for all of us. What was it like for you catching Lazardo when he was out there in Houston making a statement. I think that was one of the Better Lazaros I've seen he looked extremely comfortable. Mixing his pitches and he was aggressive with fastball spawned he was he threw everything with with one hundred percent and ten and I think he's you can absolutely pitch here of high level. Can you sort of see this like you. The future is now kind of thing. I think some of the people you know said the coaching staff and people have have said with you. Guys are coming up sort of August and September but there's a little bit. Can you sort of feel what did you realize that. Would you going up through the minor leagues with these guys that this is a this is a group that could be pretty special at some point of course. I mean catching you know. Aj and use use you know they're always the best players on the field and I you know you could feel that you know when when when they went outside the mount is you always you always thought you were winning that night and now they're just not the same feeling here and I think everybody in team understands the House special these these guys are and there's more coming to with Parker done she and Capri Leeann and grant homes. What do you think of some of those guys having worked with with them for for awhile now. All those guys have all your awesome awesome awesome stuff and you know I think they're they're very close. you know. Parker has been one of the you know. The best teammates I've been around is awesome stuff. He competes great grants. It's grants and absolute bulldogs. Awesome stuff haven't had the chance to catch caprine yet game. I've caught a few sides from them but from what I hear you know he's he's just as good so now you have to learn a whole pitching staff up here. Guys weren't even in Spring Training Tanner roark Hummer Bailey. How do you do that before tanner now. Weiss tenors on a great job of working with me. I would say you no. He's he's a veteran guy and I'm sure you know he was. He was as in about having a guy. You know catching his debut behind the plate. Hey you know he you know he walked. Walk me through some stuff that we should be sat down made sure we knew everything that was going on and make sure you know we were on the same page and now. I can't take me enough for his patience. He was with me. You know ask them all sorts of questions. In as he'll stop he probably hasn't heard but these guys these these guys take the stuff seriously and they know it's important that we need to be working together so tell us about your first major league hit. What was that like Is that something that's kind of just like stuck in your head now. It must've been such an amazing experience for you it was I don't know it was we're just kind of happen. you know. I didn't have any huge emotions about it because you know it's something that I thought about and picture. I guess when it happened was just kind of a another swinger another at that you know my parents were obviously very excited but the in the moment that happened. I wasn't wasn't going crazy but then once a kind of a hit me later what I did and that was that was more overwhelming than than in a moment to get the ball back right. Yes and I want to talk to you about your power because it's like it's increased every year and it's that's a little bit unusual especially for somebody. Age Heavy managed to do that if you changed your mechanics thanks. Is there something different about what you've been doing. a couple of tweaks here and there again. It's nothing it's nothing big swings. I was taken away. I got drafted this wings now and they're not hugely different. it's just a matter of selection just learning how to drive the ball in kind of intent in my swing and it's just it's a lot of good hitting coaches throughout the way. Tommy average helped me a time in Stockton Midland and have a good rapport with him anonymously. Mr This year you know help me get those numbers and AAA and it's kind of just been a slow process. There hasn't been one big thing that's clicked but it's been baby steps along the way you know it. It's a slow process as far as hitting and not try and keep going but we'll see sewer it goes. It's been a pretty good start for us so far the big league level with the Power Yeah Yeah Yeah for sure you know in a week you might be asking me why my striking out so much I mean that's it's how this game works. You know so it's going well now and I'm sure at some point. I'm GonNa hit a rough patch and it's you know it's not going to be as pretty so I'm not put too much stock into Eh Awesome I. I think it'll be just fine. Thanks so much for joining us today. Shembe thank you hi. I'm Greg Thomas Travel Editor at the San Francisco Chronicle and host of the wild.
