"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well

If it gets like a big budget, theatrical release, I'm screaming white privilege all goddamn day. Okay.

Christopher Nolan's Sci-FI Thriller 'Tenet' Delayed Indefinitely
"Off Hollywood's calendar indefinitely. NPR's Bob Mondello reports They have a season killing ripple effect when the rest of Hollywood was backing away from opening dates in May and June. All I have for you is a word, everyone in the business put their faith in Christopher Nolan sci fi thriller, It'll open the right doors. Some of the wrong ones. Two doors tenant needed to open our in multiplexes. All the movie studios have been pushing back theatrical openings over concern about the pandemic, with some titles, even jumping straight to streaming. But Warner Brothers and director Nolan, whose blockbusters inception, Dunkirk and the Batman Dark Knight trilogy have made billions of dollars on the big screen were adamant that there $200 million thriller would be the 10th pole that would hold up the summer moviegoing tent. When theater chains got open, they said tenant would bring the crowd is about survival for theater owners. It is about survival all through the spring, Nolan and Warners held firm. That they would premiere tenant in cinemas on July 17. But as it became clear that theater chains would not be fully opened by this past weekend, that date slipped first to July 31 then 2 August 12 and now Warner's has taken tenant off its release calendar, promising to quote share a 2020 release date. Imminently Endquote TheStreet. Dio also said it would not be giving tenant a traditional global day and date release industry speak for opening all over the planet at once. Warner's didn't specify what a nontraditional release might look like. That part is a little dramatic Speculation in film circles has been that given the rising number of covert 19 cases in the U. S, and the flattening of curves elsewhere. A studio might try premiering tenant overseas, Christopher Nolan blockbusters tend to do 2/3 of their business in foreign countries and some major territories, South Korea, Japan, China and a few European markets have been re opening cinemas predicting box office grosses in that sort of fragmented here, and their release, though, would require a crystal ball or the abilities of the film's leading man with a future. Inversions without those powers. Let's just note that in China and South Korea when cinemas have reopened, they've done so with stringent social distancing protocols and fewer Showtime's to allow for deep cleaning of auditoriums. Theaters operating at, say 30% of their usual capacity will not be turning out a lot of box office records. That will also be true at cinemas in the US and of course, some of the biggest movie markets here are still in one form or another of lock down. It would be unprecedented to premiere a major blockbuster and not play New York or Los Angeles on opening weekend. But right now, A lot of things are unprecedented. Bob Mondello NPR news

"Go Wayne was up at the first crow of the rooster. He carefully wrapped the green belt of the lady around his waist as he dressed as dawn broke. Sir, go Wayne road out to meet his fate. The guide lead Sir Wayne, over the Snowy Hills, stopping at the edge of a jagged cliff, the terrified guide pointed to a path that led down through the jagged rocks to a marsh below down, there was the Green Chapel. The guide refused to go any further and begged. Go Wayne to turn back. He swore he'd never tell a soul about grains decision if he decided to flee. The guide trembled as he spoke, but Sir Wayne had given his word. It was up to God whether he died that day he had to do the honorable thing and allow the. Green Knight a swing at his head. Sir Wayne led his horse. Don't the jagged path to the marsh, but something wasn't right. There wasn't a chapel insight. There was only an unusual mound next to a waterfall, a dark crevasse between two stones, overgrown with vines and Moss Sir Wayne's heart filled with dread. This had to be the Green Chapel. Go Wayne tied Granola to try and drew his sword he inched toward the cave, the wet ground squishing underneath his feet. He stepped into the darkness of the Green Chapel. Sir Wayne had to stop and let his eyes adjust to the darkness. He couldn't see a thing, but he could hear the whine of metal grinding against stone, the sound of an axe being sharpened. Circle Wayne held out his sword and shouted. Collect your debt, you coward. The sound of grinding stopped of voice, boomed out from the blackness at ease seargl away. The Green Knight leaped out of the darkness and landed in front of Sir. Go Wayne, a giant gleaming. Danish acts in his hand. Sir. Go Wayne stood tall as the Green Knight approached the Green Knight's voice echoed off the walls as he spoke. You honor jar word. Circle Wayne now. pull off your helmet and take what you are. Oh! Sir Go Wayne threw aside his sword and helm, and dropped to the wet Mossy floor, he bared his neck, and took a deep breath as the Green Knight raised the axe. But from the quarter of his I, Sir Go, Wayne saw the blade move and flinched. It was involuntary and ever so slightly, but he flinched the Green Knight. Is Grain are Jew the bravest. Most honorable of all of Arthur's Knights did I. Flinch when you lopped off my head. Don't chew me the same respect. Sir Go Wayne was embarrassed. The Green Knight was right. He assumed the position once again, assuring his executioner, he wouldn't budge the time. He dug his hands into the moss underneath and steadied himself. He wouldn't move again. No matter what the Green Knight heaved the axe above his head, and swung down with all his force. The acts landed harmlessly in the Moss Surg Wayne turned and looked at the Green Knight who smiled at him. I had to make sure you weren't going to flinch again, but now that I know protect your neck. Sir, go! Wayne shouted back. Stop playing games and take your swing. Go. Wayne again planted himself into the ground. Stock still is to the ground ready to meet his fate. It's sliced through the air, but only Nick Surg Wayne on the edge of his neck, drawing blood, but doing no real damage, sir, go, Wayne immediately dove for his sword, he snatched it off the ground and pointed it at the Green Knight Ready to attack. The Green Knight lowered the axe and smiled at go, Wayne. I didn't swing on the first. Because you were faithful to our agreement on that first night and I missed on that second. Try Because you honored our agreement on the second night, but on the third I had to make some contact because you weren't completely truthful with me. You kept something from me. You didn't give me all your winnings. You kept the belt. Sir Wayne's is widened the green. Knight was Lord Brutal Lack. He had stayed with him for the last week. The whole thing was a test. The Green Knight applauded go Wayne. He truly was the most honorable of all of King. Arthur's knights. But Sir go! Wayne seethed angry with himself. He ripped the belt off and threw it at the feet of the Green Knight Ashamed of what he had become, he'd been covetous and cowardly. He'd forgotten everything about being a true, virtuous and honorable night. Maybe he had never really known. Sir, go Wayne dropped to his knees and hung his head. He begged the green night for forgiveness. But the Green Knight said there was nothing to forgive. Sir, go Wayne admitted his failings. The Nick on his neck was all that was required go. Wayne had proven his worth. He had lived up to his reputation. Sir, go Wayne was humbled truly and deeply humbled maybe for the first time in his life. He picked the belt up off the ground. I will wear this belt forever, not as a trophy, but as a reminder of the free of the flesh. But Wayne had one last question. How how did BERTA? Lack do all this. The Green Knight smiled. My wife is Morgan. LA- Fay Moore Liz former pupil. It was her spells that hit our appearances. This whole charade was her idea. She wanted to put the pride of camelot on trial. She expected you to fail. Surrogate Wayne thanked Lord Berta lack for everything. This was a lesson. He would never forget. By the time Sergei made it back to camelot, the wound on his neck had healed on his return. The court erupted with joy. They were certain go. Wayne had fallen Surg Wayne recounted the entire endeavor leaving no embarassing moment out. King. Arthur loved the story. His nephew face down his own frailty and came out truly humbled. Or that a greenbelt be worn by every one of his nights, so it would be a message that they too would never forget..

"In his ear. Don't worry about breaking my heart I. Am all yours? Unless? Of course there's another woman that you belong to sir. Go Wayne assured her that there was no one else, but he would not betray his host. The Lady resigned to the Knights dismissals asked for one final kiss. Another request she wanted his glove something to remember him. by Sir go wayne sat up if he had a hundred men all carrying his finest possessions, it wouldn't be a gift. Worthy of her Amir Glove would be an insult. The lady accepted the compliment, and countered with a gift of her own, a red and gold ring, but Sir Wayne refused. The gold ring was far too glamorous for a night. She took the ring back, but began to undo her belt instead of fine silk of green with gold trimmings. Surely Sir Wayne could accept that gift. Again Surrogate Wayne declined. The lady was now offended, not even this girdle. If you only knew how precious this piece is, whoever wears? This belt cannot be harmed. Sergei Wayne's is grew wide. It was New Year's Eve tomorrow. You would have to face the Green Knight. This belt might be his only chance at surviving. Sir, go Wayne took the lady's hand. He would be honored to take such a precious gift. The lady leaned close and kissed Sagawa Wayne. She held his gaze and whispered. Whatever you do, do not tell my husband..

He had swung it down. It was a clean shot. The head cleaved off and rolled across the room. Blood spilled from the Green Knight's body, but he didn't fall. He didn't move at all. Sir, go! Wayne's blood ran cold. His jaw dropped as the green. Knight pushed off the ground blood spilling out the top of his neck. The Green Knight calmly stood back up and retrieved his head with no more effort or worry than if he was picking a daisy, the Green Knight held his head by the hair in one hand, and hopped back on his horse with ease, he raised the decapitated head toward Wayne and spoke from it. Find me at the Green Chapel Seargl Wade. Find me or be a coward. The Green Knight turned and dug his Spurs into his horse. The horse took off in a sprint so fast that sparks kicked up from its hove's against the stone. Circle Wayne could only stare after him thinking, what have I done?

Now back to the story. seargl Wayne stood dumbfounded in the empty hall. The Green Knight had wrote away leaving only blood stains to show that he was ever there go. Wayne had cut the nights head clean off, but didn't kill him. In one year go Wayne owed the Green Knight Swing at his own neck now the sound of laughter broke Sir go Wayne Out of his days. It was King Arthur, the king padded go. Wayne on the shoulder, took the axe from him, and it hung in the Grand Hall, a Memento of this wild and counter. Arthur walked the stunned go wayne back toward the table, doing his best to put his mind at ease. Don't let the darkness drag you down. He survived your swing. You might survive his. Sir Go Wayne wished he shared his uncle's optimism. He did his best to put on a good face. He couldn't live a whole year in a constant state of dread. For Sir. Go, Wayne! The following year was a blur, winter, Spring and summer all blended together as the image of a green executioner's axe sat at the back of his head. As winter approached go. Wayne knew he could not risk is reputation as either a night or the nephew of the great king. Arthur, he had to journey out and find the Green Chapel by New Year's Day. The festival for Saints Day was as grand as any ever seen in camelot, but try as he might go. Wayne couldn't enjoy himself. He had to take his leave at dawn go. Wayne went to King Arthur and requested permission to begin his journey. His servants laid out the finest silks and armor to dress him for his excursion trimmings of red and gold on everything they brought his horse, Gringo let out of the stable dress just as finely as go, Wayne himself, sir, Go Wayne climbed upon his horse, and a squire brought out the knight's shield red with a gold five pointed star painted across it. Sir Go Wayne basked in the breaking sunlight to an outsider. He'd looked like the perfect image of night, but forgot. Wayne this meant very little. He knew it offered him no real protection, this shiny shield and armor would be of no use against a free swing from the Greene Knight. It was all for show. Go Wayne dug his spurs into the side of his horse and rode out into the country to find the Green Chapel. seargl Wayne was in the wild and all alone for the first time in his life. Go Wayne for. Having against the natural world to be completely different than fighting men, men could be reasoned with or defeated. Nature could not. Every day was a fight for his life. Everything wanted him dead. Dwayne worked his way across Wales and up the coast of England, but with each town wayne past he grew more and more dejected. Do you know of the Green Chapel he'd ask, but the response was always the same, a strange look and a quick shake of the head. The terrain and weather turned harsh and unrelenting the snow set in, he was cold and starving for the first time all year go. Wayne began to wonder if he was even going to live to see New Year's at all mentally. He was prepared to die by the Green Knight's hand. It never occurred to him that he might not make it that far..

"Sir Go. Wayne stared in disbelief at the massive green monstrosity. Lording over the room, he was nearly twice the size of any other man, his head well above the lanterns on the wall. He's half giant, said go wayne in quiet amazement, but it wasn't just the size of the stranger that caught go Wayne's attention, but his hugh he was completely green head to toe, his leggings tunic his skin, even his elbow, length, hair, and beard all green. His horse was even green. The night it across the room head held high. His red eyes locked on the king. King Arthur stared right back at the interloper as the Green Knight approached go Wayne saw detailed embroidery all over the Knight's horse, and his garments, golden accents in the Horse's Mane, and even solid Gold Spurs on the nights feet go. Wayne looked closer. The strain night wasn't wearing boots. The Spurs were attached directly to his feet. Sir Wayne studied the stranger. He looks like a monster, but no monster would be so well dressed. The Green Knight didn't have a sword or armor. He wasn't dressed for a fight. In one hand he held a Sprig of holly an evergreen man, carrying the fruit of an evergreen tree go. Wayne would have found it amusing. Had it not been for what he carried in the other? A massive acts fit for an executioner it like everything else was completely green and elaborately decorated the Blade glistened in the candle light. The Green Knight finally pulled his horse to a stop. He looked around the room, staring each and every night. In the I, not one moved the Green Knight shouted voice booming through the hall. Who hails himself as master of this House. The king stepped forward and raised his cup to the intruder. Oh warm, welcome to you sir. Why don't you step out of the saddle and have some wide circle? Wayne couldn't believe his ears. Why was Arthur welcoming this man? He didn't dare interrupt. He trusted the Kings Guidance, but the Green Knight shook his head, as he looked around the room at the red drunken faces of the roundtable. He turned back to Arthur. So this is camelot. These are the most fared fearsome warriors and. And all the land, though most honorable nights I had to see it for myself Arthur remained impassive while surrogate Wayne's blood boiled. Wasn't his uncle going to do anything? The Green Knight held up the SPRIG of Holly. I'm not here for a fight I. Don't think it would be fair not against this group of Drunken Babes. You Call Knights. No, I'm here for something else. It is Christmas time, isn't it? Time of joy the time of games. That's what I'm here for a game. Arthur nodded. Go on. The Green Knight held up the giant acts with one hand a swing for a swing I'll kneel right here in the middle of King Arthur's court and let one of you. Fide gentlemen have the first hack. My neck I promise. I Won't flinch in return one year from today I get to match your swing for my. Oh. The room stirred with chatter the Green Knight laughed. None will step up. I thought this was camelot, the beacon of bravery and strength Sir go wayne new. This was a trick. None of us can step up. We'll make the king look bad, and if Google, Wayne knew that Arthur did to. King Arthur shouted folly finds the man that flirts with the fool, but I'll do it. The Green Knight's smile and dismounted King. Arthur marched right up to the man and stared up at the giant. The Green Knight handed the axe to Arthur. Let me my king, Sir. Wayne shouted. He couldn't let his uncle take this swing. All eyes turned to the young night go. Wayne had just bested all of these men during the war games and he was Arthur's blood relative. I'm the only one suited for this swing thought go Wayne. Surg away leaned forward his voice, low but steady. My King if you'll allow me. I will gladly take this swing in your stead. Look around this room. Living legends, everyone, the bravest of the brave, and the greatest being your majesty I'm just a man who has been lucky in this life. CAMELOT cannot lose King Arthur. I suspect it can do without his nephew. King Arthur nodded. Sir Wayne stood and walked across the room, unsure if this was a trick, or if the stranger had a death wish King Arthur handed, his nephew acts go, Wayne lift his uncle. He couldn't tell if the king was proud of him. For stepping up, Arthur's expression betrayed no emotion at all. Sir, go, Wayne, push those thoughts from his mind, and gazed up into the red eyes of the night and introduced himself to the giant. Standing this close to the Green Knight, he could tell he was just a man, a large man, but flesh and blood, though his green hue still went unexplained. The Green Knight Glare Down On. Go Wayne. Repeat back to me the challenge I wanNA. Make sure you stand what your doing. Go Wayne calmly repeated the challenge, just as the Green Knight had stated. The Green. Knight smiled and got down on all fours. He flipped his long hair over his head, exposing his bare neck there was no hidden armor, and the Blade of the axe was sharp enough to shave with standing here with the axe in hand, and the Green Knight Knelt in front.

"Surg Elaine was riding high at the Christmas festival. It was his first one as a proper member of the roundtable, and it had been a whirlwind every day during the festival there were wargames of jousting and sword, fighting good natured contests of strength, and wit and Sir go. Wayne had come out on top again and again. He'd gained a reputation throughout the land as a chivalrous and honorable man. He knew that being the nephew of King Arthur had its privileges, but they only went so far. He didn't want people to think he was coasting by on his name alone. He was Arthur's blood. He had to be the best. Each night of the festival featured a decadent feast with plenty of wine and beer for all by New Year's Day King. Arthur decided that they needed to do something extra special, Sir Go! Wayne sat at the head table next to his uncle. The king as the food was brought out King Arthur couldn't hide his joy as he stood, the entire room turned to their king as he spoke. A Happy New Year to all of camelot. Before we eat I want to be amazed. I want to hear a tale so gracious so extravagant that we will remember this night for the rest of the year indeed for the rest of our lives. The crowd roared with applause. Surely one of the Knights had a tale that could please the king. But. As the roar of the crowd died down, another sound rose up a rumbling from outside, going quite put his finger on what it was. The door to the dining hall swung open, and a shadow fell across the room. The entire banquet hall fell silent. Go Wayne couldn't believe his eyes. It was a night riding on his horse into the dining hall. He was the biggest man go. Wayne had ever seen and his clothing, his skin, his beard. They were all entirely green. I'm Vanessa Richardson.

A Manhunt on the 17th Centurys High Seas
"Steven. Johnson joins US now. He is the author of many books many bestselling books including farsighted. And how we got to now but he joins us to talk about. His latest book is called enemy of all mankind. A true story of piracy power and Histories. First Global Manhunt Steven. Thanks for being here but much having me. There are lots of exciting terms just in your title and subtitle alone. I WANNA start with those even though and we'll talk about this. There's a larger story that you want to tell with this book but let's begin with piracy because that's a fun word. What happened on September Eleventh? Sixteen Ninety Five. There's a kind of interesting bleak poetry to the fact that this happened on September eleventh. Basically the events that are at the center of the book is a clash at sea in the Indian Ocean between pilot. Ship led by a very mysterious figure who would become the most notorious criminal in the world. A guy named Henry Avery and a much larger Indian treasure ship whose name was anglicized as the gun sway and the translation of that into English is excessive treasurer or exceeding treasure. So they were being pretty conspicuous with maiming. This vessel in terms of the of treasurer on board and effectively. These two ships confront each other on September eleven sixty ninety five by all rights. The pirate ship should have been easily overpowered but to incredibly unlikely things happen a cannon onboard board that Indian ship explodes because of some kind of malfunctioning design which basically turns cannon into a bomb when it explodes in so instantly. There's this you know. Many people on Indian ship killed the deck catches on fire. And at the same time. The first cannon fire from the pirate ship manages to have this incredibly lucky shot where they split the main mast of the Indian chip in two which effectively disables at in in the water and so the pirates are able to board the ship they pull off this heist that in today's currency we be would be worth as much as one hundred million dollars so it makes one of the most lucrative crime some in the history of crime and triggers a global crisis that reverberates around the world. Okay before we get to that crisis because you would wonder why one active piracy would do that. Just general picture of the piracy problem at that time. I'm always taken aback by the way that pirates are these cute Nara dwells in children's picture books or like Johnny Depp for many people. But that's not what piracy was back. Then what did it looked like? And was this unusual. Well actually one of the origin points to this project for me was years and years ago. I mean something like fifteen years ago. When my kids were very young we went to Disneyworld and we went on the pirates of the Caribbean ride and it was right after nine eleven and I had this on. I was floating down this little canals. That ride songs are being song and everything. That's very Kelly. The that the pirates were the terrorists of the seventeen hundreds and sixteen hundreds right. They were these terrifying figures would show up out of nowhere and burn your village down and attack. The women and people lived in fear of them. Here was three hundred years later. And it's just a kind of a children's story so they'll link between pirates and terrorism. Which is something that runs kind of subtly through enemy of all mankind actually began on that. Disneyworld ride in some ways. But what's historically really important about pirates at this point in history and one of the reasons why this particular story has so much significance. I think is up until this point. There was a very blurry line in terms of the legitimacy of piracy so there was this other class of occupation. That was called being a a private here. And if you were a privateer from all outside appearances you're a pirate attacking other ships and stealing their treasure and doing all these atrocious things that seat. But as long as you weren't attacking if you were a British privateer as long as you weren't attacking British ships. You're within the zone of and people like Francis. Drake a couple of generations before Henry Avery. When often basically we live the life of piracy but then came back to England and was knighted and bought a giant estate and lived a completely legitimate lifestyle. And so in a sense what happens to this period because of crime for reasons we can get into. It's a turning point where the British crown finally has to take a stand against piracy. They have to basically announced to the world that they're not a nation of pirates the way they've been accused to be. Let's talk about what made this pirate attack so noteworthy. Obviously there was the hall but were there other things that made this a big deal at the time. There are a couple of big ones. I is the other element of the crime. This ship that they attacked was a ship that had been doing business and ports of call like Mocha in the red seat but it was also filled with religious pilgrims coming back from Mecca on a whole other level was kind of a Muslim like religious transport vessel as well and among those pilgrims were a significant number of women women in the Royal Court of Aranda. Who was the great grand mogul of India? The last of the moguls and this was an unusual thing. At the time right you would not see a lot of big vessels in sixteen ninety five. That had a significant number of women on board but there are all these female pilgrims on board and so when the pirates attack the guns way they find these women there and number of the pirates rape the women on board. Some of the women commit suicide jumping overboard to avoid being attacked. And so there's this kind of outbreak of the atrocious sexual violence that happens as part of the crime and of course WORD GETS BACK TO WRONGS. Zab that not only has a hundred million dollars of his assets been stolen but members of his extended royal family have been sexually attacked and violated and this all is crucial in terms of geopolitics. Because it's right at a moment in a time where there's a major economic transition happening in the world. There's a chapter in the book called two kinds of treasure and is basically. There are two different ways of making a fortune that are in conflict with each other here. There's a very old way which is represented by Aurangzeb which is have an autocratic dynasty tax year citizens. Sit On that wealth and pass it onto your descendants. That's what every most of the rich people in the world at this point where people who were members of some kind of royal family that had some kind of dynastic wealth. But there's this new way of making money that has just appearing in it comes in the form of this interesting embryonic. New Organization called the multinational publicly traded corporation and that was the east India company. The east India Company was the first company that actually had publicly traded shares. So that people could. Outsiders could invest in the company in those shares could go up or down in value and for the first time people were making money not just through the prophets of the business but through the increase in value of these publicly traded shares and that turned out to be the future. Right dot is how if you look at the one hundred richest people in the world today. The vast majority of them were people who made money because they had traded shares in a company. They found that their parents found it. So in a sense clash between these two massive economic forces and Henry. Avery in his little pirate ship gets right in the middle of it because once. Iran's UB here's that his money has been stolen in women have been raped he threatened to eject the east India company from India which is the main source of their income. They've been trading CALICO and chinse fabrics and so on and if that had happened if they've been thrown out of India the whole course of the British Empire would have been transformed. It's entirely likely that the British Empire would not have formed in in India in the subsequent decades. If the east India company had been injected. So why wasn't it? Attracted rings up puts a number of the employees of the east India Company under house arrest and threatens to execute them and they began a furious letter writing campaign back to London. Saying we have to find the pirate we have to bring him to justice and we have to announce to the world that we are not going to tolerate piracy anymore or else this whole incredibly lucrative business that the country is increasingly dependent on is just going to disappear and so. That's what triggers this global manhunt really the first one in

The entire division kilty was working ad but no one had told Kelty so basically. I was the one who sort of say. Hey by the way you're fired. Yeah but the good news is that she remember who I was then now that she knows who she message me on facebook a few days later like liked me or sort of became friends would ever is like. Oh yes this is. This is great. That's like Mitch Remembers me. She sent me the some sort of like whatever poke fucking with and so then. I wrote her message on facebook and I was like. Hey I want to take you out. I WANNA call you get your number and then you wrote back and give you a number that I called you. And we were talking for a few minutes so rather nowhere. You're like hey I gotta go print something I gotta go by and I was like wait. I want to ask you about your like okay. Cool I call you and then a few days go by and then you call me back with you. Yeah I had to print something. Did you urge you to print it up? I was probably like on doing emails while talking to you. You know how I live my life. I'm not good at the focus. So then you ask me out and I said yes. It's true and you plan to date for us. Yeah we went to a place called St. Which now does no longer and we had food. There was Super Way to Foodie for Andrew's basically only eating like peanut butter toast and Mac and cheese for the things. My next question is you know we all have our characters on the lady gang and I think I think mine is pretty who how I am but from a from a husband's perspective. What is it like to be married and live with? K. Type the queen of if you call yourself K. TYPE. Yeah I thought you had like a like a little Zany name or something Little Sandy. Jack has she the sandwiches. I don't remember mine little. Oh I don't remember who to Jack was little. Sammy I think so no. I don't remember so the thing about living with Kelty is that she's she's like super extra and then she just chill and then there's nothing like introversion in quite unsure which is great because it turns out that she's always entertaining right like there's never a day that goes by. That are not entertained by either by something silly that she does or just sort of joking household. It's like ten percent something always goes wrong for Kelty and is like ten percent harder for her than everyone else like. It could be the most mundane thing. Try and pull out your socks and the whole joy fall out or you'll put one sock. That's pink into the white. You know load of laundry or whatever it is. Everything is a little bit harder for you. I'm not sure that it's actually harder or that. You're not paying attention like I still have deduced. What exactly it is my friend. Jeff said to me once that I am like a tornado. I said my technology like my phones. Computers they never last very long. Because you're super hard on stuff and I was like what do you mean he's like you live your life like a tornado and you just think plow over anything in your path. Would you're on your ambition? Absolutely I would say that. So so what else is it like? How do I entertain you? Well recently? You've been getting take talks. So there's been a few talk dance learning sessions. That are sort of a shame that last night we looked at a bunch of people. And then you try to do some yes so last night. We're looking at videos and then we saw this really good dancer and I was like. He's only three turns. It's not that hard turns out who's doing six but Then I got up in my pajamas with all my weave in and tried to show him that I could do returns and I only really did a double. I mean I used to be able to do six and my heyday but also like I haven't danced in a decade so the fact that I can still a clean double is something no shade. It's more than I could do. So it's all good. Yeah no it's fine. Am I as crazy as the girls? Make me out to be? Yes.

"You lost her do at home is simply all over the weekend seventy four sixty two hammer pretty pathetic showing for the return of Bobby knight I did win money on the game though I bet the over Saturday they added Bailey didn't hit until about fifteen seconds left to go in the game with a couple garbage shots but I was I had I was glued to the return of Bob knight at halftime it was to me as it was sad it looks as if coach knight health is deteriorating a little bit I don't diagnose interest would just something that I kind of looked at and said oh man I hope I don't know if coaches doing too well that encounter between him and Dick right tail was off fourteen cringe worthy defy tell with the like kind of shake his hand and put his hand on his head in check started like pushed away and that was horrible look on his face like what are you doing done what it what did you think of coach knight's return after twenty years to assembly hall after he was fired my first thought was he looks rough he looks back and listen I'll say it because we're all thinking it I'm wondering if he decided to come back because he knows he might not be around much longer his health look bad I mean you look at Jean Katie side by side with Bob knight gene Katie is older than Bob knight but gene looks a heck of a lot better and as soon as I saw coach walk out the first thing I looked at was that knows he was purple I mean I don't know if he felt if somebody punched him if maybe he's been drinking I have no idea but he just did not look healthy but I will say this I think a lot of people who are kind of on the fence of whether or not it needed to happen for closure made that decision once they saw him out there I think that was something that needed to happen I think now that it's done a lot of people can put some bad memories to the side I think that was the closure of the saga a lot of people there probably weren't even born when Bob knight was fired from a you right you're absolutely right but with with technology these days with YouTube or you can go back and see a lot of great things from Bobby next career and I was some of those kids might be able to identify with some of that stuff I think it's pretty cool that he once threw a chair across the and I admit man I was kind of on the fence about the whole thing because I I'm a Tennessee volunteers got rice I'm trying to be objective looking at this but I grew up in Indiana and respect the hell out of what Bob knight has to offer I didn't know if I needed closure or what it would feel like but having watched it with my own eyes that was closure that was putting the end of the story to bad right there will also add this I'm done with RG Miller as somebody that lives here in Indiana I want as many teams from the state of Indiana to get to the NCAA tournament as possible right but I'm done with RG Miller Dave how do you lose that game how do you lose rivalry game home court Bob knight's coming back you got Cuban in the stands sage deals in the stands and there's no passion from the team that's what bothers me the most it be one thing if Purdue just plain old lights out sometimes the other team they catch fire you can't do nothing about it it was good they won the game date you know played harder than Indiana did but there was no fire Bob knight at half time yelling for defense throwing his hands around there was more passion in him than Archie Miller's mealy mouth self walking up and down the side of the R. humility and let the team watch the Bob knight ceremony at halftime and that's a problem you think that's a problem he gives you should should focus on the task at hand don't get X. distracted by what's going out there on the court at halftime that was an extended halftime searing everybody in there you talk about what you're doing right to talk about what you're doing wrong you make your adjustments you chew a little but if you have to but did a farm Archie Miller I bring everybody up there to the hallway and I remind them look at this this is the nineteen eighty big ten championship team not even the national championship big ten when you play good ball here in Indiana they treat you like gods this stadium is sold out to welcome back its team that won a big ten championship and the coach that was along for the ride this is what Indiana basketball the bout now if you want to be treated like a god for the rest of your life when you come back here if you want to be walking the back year after year and have people buying your drinks and giving a standing ovations I highly recommend you start playing Indiana basketball you had every opportunity to show those kids that but you stayed in the locker room and there's no passion there's no fire from Archie that's what bothers me the most just as a basketball fan you don't even coach K. coach case all you still see him firing up the Cameron crazies pumping his fist wanted away while you don't see anything from arching no emotion and they played like it and that's unacceptable all right coming up next we will check in with all right it's Jamie progresses employee of the month to month in a row leave a

Chang on Twitter he knows the the region better than anybody else and as I woke up this morning I'm hearing about crazy protests in Hong Kong at the airport and I'm worried that Hong Kong's gonna implode so Gordon the car got a few minutes and is joining us here on the Chris Plante show garden Chang welcome Sir thank you so much Mike I'm worried is Hong Kong on the brink again the for the what is it the sixth seventh eighth week in a row we expand and yes you're right you should be worried there's no three day demonstration at the airport both the bottles and departures hall you had the chief executive of Hong Kong curry land give another tone deaf press conference I think she's speaking not to try to calm things in Hong Kong but basically to please one person seeking paying attorneys will also China has really cost extremely important line it is threatened the children young children of an American diplomat in Hong Kong this is behavior which the United States has to respond to Morgan Ortega's the state department spokeswoman yesterday called China's regime suckers in response to this what Beijing cured was it has the details the names of the husband and the young children of Chile either the chief clinical officer in the Hong Kong consulate the U. S. home home consulate and this is an intent to incite violence against the young children in the United States needs to start withdrawing its diplomatic personnel from a Chinese soil because obviously Beijing intends to harm children this is scary stuff has the White House he responded to this to your knowledge cordon the White House hasn't but the state department has as I mentioned because Ortega's actually talked about this at her regular press briefing yesterday this is athletic installed our diplomats stand and this is not just some theoretical concern by because last spring China cause brain injuries to American diplomats of the Congo consulate so this is something which is starting to form a pattern we've got many diplomatic personnel in our concerts in China as well of course the embassy I think that they're at risk because Beijing has made it clear that it control no lines in terms of what looks like what would preaching called a people's war against the US it declared that in may we ignored it obviously Beijing right now is working on harming Americans and working on it taking over Hong Kong and imposing a communist regimes will on Hong Kong are we still worried is the US still believing that the Chinese military is on the perimeter of Hong Kong yes there's a garrison of since about six thousand people's Liberation Army troops in Hong Kong itself at various locations across the border we have seen mobilization of people's armed police we don't know if that was just intended for consumption in terms of intimidating people in Hong Kong but clearly the military option is something Beijing's considering I'm sure it's absolutely the last thing that they didn't want to do because it knows the Hong Kong is not armored car country and that China would suffer many casualties if it were to deploy troops or armed police in the territory the scary stuff but stuff we have to be aware of I've got about two minutes left here going I want to talk about the trade wars because there was a spike you know we have the drop in the Dow over the expanded trade wars and China firing back and then the president made comments about the possibility of a meeting in September and the market kinda hedged back and today it's down a little bit what do you read in the tea leaves over the trade war with China yeah this is a part of an expanded economic war as I mentioned in may Beijing to clear to people who are against the US so this is part of that it's going to be extremely difficult to come to a comprehensive agreement with Beijing because Beijing for various reasons doesn't want to and is also not able to come to terms with the U. S. so we are seeing this increased friction China is lashing out it's engaging and retaliation and leaves for talent Tory tactics hurt Beijing more than the United States so Beijing right now I think is at a point where it just has nothing you can do to harm the US except to try to intimidate us into some sort of submission wow this is intriguing stuff for me a geek who likes to keep my eye on the global situation hi I will tell you I follow you religiously on the Twitter said and I do believe that you are watching more than anybody out there so I appreciate your input on this Gordon Chang is a guy you should follow and is to cordon Chang dot com is where we should track you online as well yeah I archive my articles there for free and the Twitter is cordon future great thank you gore and have a great weekend appreciate you being here Sir he is the man on the Asian peninsula also says the Hong Kong launches rockets when China tells it too I mean not Hong Kong North Korea we'll get into that much more to come with Michael tell K. here on the Chris Plante show Chris Plante the warning is out there how about a heist agency in Chicago.

"Beaten down. I think that's why the NCW tournament in the last few years they've been so unsuccessful they've lost. Teams aren't as talented. I think that shows that maybe their heart's not in it, you know, screaming and you know, I just did. I didn't want to be there anymore and just didn't feel like it was any fun anymore. Sort of lost the love of the game being they're put on curious just as an observer of Bobby Knight observer of this institution of Indiana. We're living in a moment where we're seeing that a lot of different communities and world reckoning with its idea of open secrets about awful things sort of existing for a long time. I'm why for decades, if there was a sort of understanding that there was this dark side to Bobby Knight, did it not coalesce until nineteen ninety nine because he won. He win. He's a winner. We deify people who are great. We don't wanna hear the dark side of those people because we're fans. They're so good at what they do. They make us feel better about ourselves. So people in the state of Indiana. You know, a lot number of people told me it's a fly over state and Bob Knight gave him a sense of a sense of being. Indiana basketball and specifically Bob nice Indiana basketball was the state's identity. You can go someplace on vacation, say you're from Bloomington, Indiana, and they said, that's Bob nights country. He embodied all the qualities that they love hard work teamwork. Bob nineteen worked hard. They were unselfish. They were never about one player. You know, he didn't want names on the back of jerseys. You're going to go to class. You're going to get your degree. They got good grades. They graduated, Bob Knight, didn't cheat. You don't need to cheat and hoosiers love that he was successful and everybody shared a part of that success. And that's why they were willing to put up with stories that they had heard about, but they didn't really want to look into. I call him the emperor of Indiana, in a sense of you're the emperor. You're allowed to do what you want. You want to wipe your ass in front of your team, have the toilet paper Bob, and it also ties into, I think, an ongoing conversation. And certainly when that in the last couple of weeks has bubbled backup, which is the Power dynamics within the university, the amount of Power that a big time coach has compared to players, but then even the larger university structure. So what lessons are there in the Bob Knight's story about the Power dynamics in college? Athletics. I'm glad you asked that because one of the one of the more interesting parts to the film to me was an interview with Patricia read Neil reads, mom, and she said, repeatedly, she said they're just kids point Power. They have no forum to stake. Pays no platform there. No one, their kids, the kids, and I followed sports my whole life and I love the world of sports and there's some times when they're in college and they're six foot eight and two hundred sixty five pounds. And there are Power forward, but they're still seventeen eighteen years old, right? And the Power lies in the coach and people have Power are either they wield that Power in a way that scares people or people are just afraid to take them on. I mean, everybody was afraid about night. There was a fear that was palpable. The fear is the kind of fear that even when they're gone from the program that this man's influence could fall and hurt them. And loyalty is a big thing for coach night. If you weren't loyal, he was going to Platt all the stops Pia network. He can put out the word he could make life difficult for. Are you? And I think that's why there was a cone of silence around the program for so long. And that's exerting the Power dynamic down from coach to player. But there's also a coach like Bob, Mike can exert it up and basically be the most important, powerful person at a university of which he is extensively. Just one employee. I know there's a moment where coach night exerted that Power that you're talking about Power to in an upward way in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. He sat down with Connie Chung of NBC for a special on stress and it wasn't stressed in sports. It was just stress. The topic of rape came up and he said, if rape is inevitable, relax and enjoy it. I'm not talking about the actor rate. Don't don't misinterpret me there. But what I'm talking about is something's happened to you that in so you have to handle it. For what happened. It caused a huge fear. Many tried to force night to leave including hundreds who resented the coaches, recent controversial comments on rape pede said that today in two thousand eighteen he'd be fired within a day. And back then the president only mildly reprimanded coach night. He didn't really attack him. And yet night wielded his Power. He went and interviewed for a job at university of New Mexico for their head basketball coach, and all of a sudden the people in the state of Indiana weren't marching against him. They were marching on the president, how dare you, how can you challenge him? He may leave. What are you doing. Rallying outside the assembly hall showing support and trying to persuade Bobby Knight to stay. I don't think he was going to go to New Mexico, but it was a shot across the bow of the president's office from that point on from one thousand nine hundred eighty eight on coach night knew that nobody could touch him in the state of Indiana and most certainly at Indiana University. What I've learned is it only takes one person to step forward.

This is our series of bonus podcasts in-between seasons, where we have conversations with filmmakers about recent thirty for thirty films. This week, we look at the fall of coaching legend. Bob Knight's started coaching basketball at Indiana University in nineteen seventy one. He would go on to lead the hoosiers to three national titles. The superstar coach soon became as famous for his outbursts as he was for his success on the court. But in two thousand CNN Sports Illustrated producer, Robert Abbott began investigating the dark side. Tonight's antics former Hoosier star, Neil Reid alleged that night was verbally and physically abusive towards his players, including lead himself. Read has fleshed out the allegations telling CNN sl that in a bit of usual peak night once put his hands on read and put his hand around my throat. He only had one came out with two input Grammy with one hand, though university officials denied the story Abbott later uncovered a videotape that substantiated reads version of events. The episode ultimately led to coach nights firing a few months later after a separate incident. Abbott's investigation is now the subject of our latest thirty for thirty film. The last days of night Abbott served as both director and narrator for the documentary. So robber Abbott, welcome to the podcast and congratulations on your new film. Thanks, it's a pleasure to be with you. So let's set a little context here from say nineteen seventy five to nine hundred eighty five or pick whatever stretch you want. Can you just describe Bob Knight at the heyday of his coaching? Oh, he was a giant and his coaching profession in the coaching profession, a basketball. He had a team in nineteen seventy five that quite possibly could have been the best team one of the best teams of all time. And then he turned around the next year, went undefeated and won is first of three national titles and Olympic gold medal. So when you're creating the mount Rushmore for college, basketball coaches, he's on it for sure. This guy was a basketball genius. I don't have any doubt about that. For nineteen seventy. I've never been proud of a bunch of kids as I am these guys. I mean, it was like watching all his delivery is ability to communicate his thoughts as concepts of what the game basketball was unbelievable. Congratulate. Thank you very much and he was, I think, maybe this inevitably happens when you are successful, you become a personality, but he was also a capital P personality. That was a big part of how the public viewed him, right. He was larger than life. I mean, I interviewed Bob Lee. Here at ESPN and he said, you know, of all the people he's been around, he's one of the people that can he can walk in and control the room. But my sense was the one thing that coach night couldn't control. It was his temper an answer for me. You get the answer. You don't like the answer then don't use them and program. Okay. The problem became the the antics were defining. His persona is an anger in him. I don't know where it came from, but I don't don't know why it stayed, but it was there. It was there all the time. And that's what ended his career at Indiana his temper. So give us a thumbnail sketch of the allegations and how everything at Indiana unraveled over the course of a few years at the end of his career, I can tell you my journey and that's kind of what the film is. It's journalistic journey in April of nineteen ninety nine. I was in my boss's office and we're kind of talking about different stories I could pursue and Luke recor just left Indiana the day before and my boss. Steve Robinson said, why would the best player who scoring all the points playing the most minutes? He's a Mr. Indiana basketball, he's beloved there. Why would he be leaving? And it was the third high school all American in two years who had left sustained just asked me a simple question. He said, go find out what's going on up there. And to be honest, I was not excited about the his sinement I said to him, hey, these kids probably aren't tough enough. They're not tough enough to play for a coach like Bob Knight. And that's what I thought it was going to be. And then three days later I called Neil Reed who had left, and we talked for about an hour and a half, and he told me a number of stories and all of a sudden, I said, wow, if what he's telling me is true. There is a story here, and these kids aren't soft and they aren't wimps and they aren't quitters. And that three allegations that we kept coming back to is that Bob Knight, but his hand around kneels throat or choked him that he wiped his behi- came out of a bathroom stall with toilet paper in his hand and wiped his behind it said you guys are playing like S H dot dot. And the third wooden was that he had kicked president Myles brand out of practice once. So I think what I did was kinda look underneath the water and say, hey, what? What? We saw impress conferences? What we saw on the sidelines was only the tip of the iceberg am. And I, you know, when Neo read and other members of the. Program took me under water. I was like, wow, this runs deep, but let me let me press you on that a little bit then because I'm trying to figure out if you're saying that people knew about this stuff for a long time and didn't talk, or did you feel like you were uncovering some stuff in that window and you should up in nineteen ninety nine. There was totally new. The side of Bob Knight that people just weren't aware of. I think it had been going on for years, but there was a progression for years. Bob Knight had been crossing the line behind closed doors in the locker room. I had heard different variations of the toilet paper incident over the years, but my sense was early on Bob Knight was the same. He had some of the same characteristics and qualities of a temper and an anger, but he would throw his arm around player, cursing and yelling at us. Cursing and yelling at us. We all understand that he he wants best for you and is not just a personal thing, but it's just he just wants you be a basketball player. I think you can be really tough, and I think you can go right to the line. I think the difference is your players have to know that you care about them and towards the middle and the end of the nineties. I think he lost touch with his players. There began that stretch of years where Indiana I got to the tournament, but suddenly Indiana bounced down either the first or second round for the fifth straight time. That was the achievement, especially in the early rounds was gone. I think when he wasn't as successful, I think he ended up blaming the players for for the lack of success. It couldn't be me. It can't be me. I've won three national titles on Olympic gold medal must be you. Beaten
