"To you. Clinton. Yates. David. Handling this mainly because of the position he's putting gone in. He's a rookie. We have to understand this about what his October has been like it took him two weeks to pitch into October it was in the thirteenth it was three days after that. Then he pitched the next time and then the next time he couldn't get out with only got four outs and so my point is I don't want to put a rookie position like this when you got Walker Buehler who in my opinion? Is the best pitcher on the team as evidence in two thousand, eighteen in the world series when you through one of the gems got forgotten for the dodgers overall I just don't like this because overall Goslin has given up as many earned runs as he has has innings pitched you can't put a rookie in that situation you have somebody better this is not the time to take so you would prefer to start Walker, bueller tonight not save him for game seven when you win it all tonight's in. Bring you in here. Well I hate to see anything come in between Clinton and Dave I know we're. Ready to go for this game No, I think. First of all, Dave Roberts is doing the right thing you put Walker. Bieler in his best situation. You may not need him tomorrow night you may get it done tonight but I would lean the other way because if you've got a bullpen game something like that on one side and fairly recent cy young award winner who gave four really good shutout. The other night before he fell apart in the fifth, they need one more inning from blades. They need five good innings before they get into that bullpen, and if they get that tonight, I think things are set for games rank guy sold on the dodgers starting the rookie in game six or maybe considering bullpen game where where do you come down on that? You know it Clinton is thinking the way. Jack. mckeon thought when he coached tomorrow manager of the marlins remember we started Josh Beckett on short rest against the Yankees. Won that game six. Here's my thing with Goslin the last time out he only pitched he only through twenty nine pitches. So I would think he'd be rested during the regular season. He was actually pretty good. My issue will be with Blake Snell. He's gotTa do better than that third. Time Right now God forbid you pitch the third time around in the order. That's when he seems to fall apart. Can you give them six solid innings and maybe give the team a chance to play a game seven tomorrow and Jack? You're Dave Roberts right now are you thinking Gone Lynn the rookie to start today you're thinking maybe I should go. With bueller maybe it should be my ace right now. I'm thinking wow, I, wish I could call. Clinton Yates to see what he thinks. This is where. I understand I understand the logic of both of my colleagues here. But here's the thing. If it doesn't go well, you pull them and you pull them quickly and you get to your bullpen and you go from there. Here's the thing that the dodgers have over the raisin have had over them twenty. During this entire series, they have guys that are hitting the cover off the ball guys like Seeger Mookie Betts, we're getting hits after hits the rays have one. Great Guy who's hitting and the rest of them are hitting as a team batting one, ninety, two with runners in scoring position that is not a recipe for success. So if you see even the hint of trouble if I'm Dave Roberts pulling consulate, I'm going to my bullpen and I'm going to unleash my hitters who can you pick up the pieces of your argument here? Yeah and I think part of the reason why the strategy I'm referring to for David. Robert's is because he has other guys in the bullpen who can go with I. Don't like the idea which is what he said yesterday we don't have a plan I'm going to eyeball it. I'm going to pull them quickly and that is not the kind of pressure I would've put on my team in the world series when it's on the line just. Right there. You know you look at the dodgers they have more home runs more hits more doubles more than fewer strikeouts than Tampa Bay. So offensively, they're too good. Remember last year Stephen Strasburg that great outing that he had to extend that series to game seven. That's the kind of performance I know that Blake smells not pitching into the night that's not gonNa happen six solid innings. That's all they need. Let's talk about the back end of this game. If you're Dave Roberts, are you going to Kenley Jansen to close this out or what are you doing in the back end of the especially if you're using four five, six pitches earlier on in this Game Clinton I don't mind Kenley in this but only because this is the time that you actually do have one to see. They have a lot of options. Dust in May in the game longer if he's throwing one hundred, one miles an hour getting Jackie. I'm trying to understand why the logic is I'm going to keep them in the game because I, have one. I was that good lawyers versus it's a different discussion with starters versus bullpen players. That's just my opinion about this. Okay. So let's pick here. Let's get some picks in your Jackie Mak where you got tonight. Just feels to me like it's the dodgers time right now I'm GONNA take. Right? Go. Sola. Dodge is a will eventually win Tampa Bay will win tonight cowlishaw. As the only panelist who was there? Thirty two years ago when they won I know our art. It's GonNa be it's GonNa take the dodgers another day eight. The reason score more runs against openers than any other team in the playoffs I'll take them. So that's three taken Tampa and one saying it's a close out for la all right we'll move on. Rams.

Google Earth video tours of LA
"So we've all seen a lot of these zoom meetings where we Show you different places. But what about a Google Earth meeting Los Angeles tourism has a twist on? Take you to places you haven't been how about via Google Earth. Well Bill cars who's the VP of digital marketing for Los Angeles tourism has put together a few of these. Well first of all. Just explain to people what a Google Earth tour is all about. I we all know about going onto google earth and looking up you know location. So what what? A street address looks like and things like that. But what is the actual show on Google Earth? What's it like? Sure so? Google Earth gives you the opportunity to develop a presentation in a project. And you can customize that project within the platform while you're GONNA do is sign by Google. Anybody can customize it it's just a matter of the content of you're putting into it it allows you to choose different views satellite hybrid not view. And then you can add the locations but not only that you're also adding in video clips if you allow for audio zone and you can add photography as well as descriptions and you can keep this presentation around for days after months after can live in perpetuity so We're really loving what we're seeing. Google Earth Tours. How did you come up with the idea because again? It's just not something that is done a lot. It's usually two people talking on a Webcam Blah Blah Blah talking heads. Yes Oh internally. The the Tourism Board is small but mighty team we come up with some really interesting ideas and we chatted and we started going through it and we saw that in the presentation mode with worth it allows you to fly through different locations so as we go from point. B. We feel like we're virtually going to these places and it really is that tourism vibe Safer example we wanted to take somebody to Cathy's corner which is that area from the dancing in la La land overlooking the valley at that magical camera night magic hour and when you get there. You have the shots from the locations. That that that Robert Folks interest douses provided us in addition to the description of the location or talking through how they got access to that particular location working with parking wrecks in the organ in the city to get access to these places. So yeah that's how he came out using Google Earth and so the first one was La la land locations and then you have a second one coming out on Friday tell everybody about it so with National Travel and tourism week taking place right now We thought there's no better place to focus on that showcases the spirit of travel then the Los Angeles International Airport. Lax is an iconic airport throughout the world and they've got a flight path museum at LAX. That not a lot of people know about this hidden gem newseum in when I stumbled across a Google Earth virtual tour of museum. I was astounded and I showed the curator's doses museum what was possible by zoom in Google Earth and They were floored so on Friday at twelve thirty PM. Tst We're going to be doing a virtual tour to flight patterns and taking you through history of flight even and you'll minefield at lax and to what we see today at the airport. So we've got a couple of others. Zoos coming up Everything that we're doing right now is focused on virtual experiences. But we're hoping that sooner than later as I said before there's no substitute for travel people be able to experience these things in real life but We're GONNA be doing a couple more coming up. We've got a facebook live with the opera and this weekend. We're doing a mother's Day special with an sons chocolate tears at their chocolate factor in the arts district. Well that's great because see's candies sold out the needs good alternatives. Tell us about magic hour. Every night you guys to a livestream of a sunset from a different location or is it usually Venice. Because I've seen a lot of Venice. Yeah no we were stationed at Hotel Irwin in Venice. Beach and You know to give somebody amazing. Webcam you have to really. I'm have the right equipment in place so We have Yes large camera station with the capture card feeding into OB software that allows us to broadcast broadcasts not only on Youtube but on facebook and instagram to simultaneously. So we're reaching Oliver Audiences. What's been the response to it? It's been outstanding We've reached over a million and a half people already people from all over the world. I mean anecdotally. We've seen some unbelievable commentary from people who are just dreaming of travel and when they see the sunset of Los Angeles and it changes as you know. Jeff it's just magical the see one night you'll have. The fog role in the next night will be perfectly sunny but then when those clouds rolling like last night it's just stunning and and I think brings that hope that people are looking for You know throughout the country and throughout the world how challenging is it right now to promote travel at a time when people can travel? Yeah it's it. Hasn't been easy. You know our spirits have I absolutely In a little crush but to be honest I think you know as time has gone over the past couple weeks. We've worked together as a team. And we've seen a lot of people throughout the industry come together and with the United States Travel Association putting National Travel Tours away together and with our magic hour campaign. I feel like we're really out of this. I know it's still. You'RE GONNA take some time for everything you get back up and running on but I gotta be honest it It's been amazing to see how many people are looking forward to the future and you you find that people are armchair traveling right now. Yeah after these virtual experiences. There's no better time to plan for your next trip. So Armchair travel is definitely the wave of the presence of the president but Hopefully people will get out of the armchair and be able to travel again soon. Well congrats for taking some innovation to new ways of checking out different places so again if you wanna see the virtual tour you co to discover
Oscars 2020: who will have the biggest night?
"Are the Oscars are this weekend who are you rooting for anybody on your list I like once upon a time in Hollywood I just thought that was a great film I love the cast awesome stuff several nominations for that film bills worker is joining us now long time energy reporter for the sun times still with five Chicago is a contributor and bill has followed many many many Oscars lot but you know I always loved about you bill you you follow the local entertainment scene so well and always told us such interesting nuggets about what was going on here well that's true I've always loved you know I mean I think that's important I think it as we all know how they moved in this world of of the current the twenty first century media I think local local local is the way to cope in general because I think that's what people really want to get because they can get you know the national stories from other outlets but but this is an interesting year at all well it's always interesting with the Academy Awards although I do think in certain categories is here there's there's some things that are pretty well said but I know we think of course they're going to go again this year without it without a without a whole list which I don't think it's a terrible thing I think you know well I'll tell you why I think so often unless you get somebody like Billy crystal who's always knocks the you know the ball out of the park I think over the years I think will be colder did a good job we recently had our critic's guide Bible to the critics choice awards which of the broadcast broadcast critics and you know we had two days he did a wonderful job and I think because he didn't try to overdo it you know came out was charming and didn't you know try to be too cute but I think sometimes I think people want to see who's going to win they want to see the presenters I don't think they want a lot of big production numbers and all those give me some wonderful musical numbers at the Oscars you know your health Elton John performing in and you know it's gonna be really quite quite wonderful in the court system the result of a few people who really are talented musically but it's gonna be interesting to see what happens on Sunday I can say I disagree too but I'd like the host I guess you're right but what okay what is a good host was a good house because right some of the host I kind of remember the Anne Hathaway that was a disaster and as much as I loved you know but she yeah I do too but she what that wasn't right for her at all and James Franco I think the the combo wasn't right and that yeah then they tried to do so many acts that an already long ceremony got longer and longer right letterman was not successful either you know so I mean and and I love him but I mean I just it's just a very tough job I will say that so I think sometimes a safe way to go is with out the host and we'll see how it goes David Letterman wasn't wanted the Oprah uma uma Oprah right rumors were rolling their eyes he's like I got to go and I got a key thing is we we didn't work we actually have some audio here from Billy crystal because he was just on Jimmy Kimmel okay crystal has hosted the Oscars I think nine times total nine times jingle himself is hosted the Oscars twice yes yeah he did a good job he did so the two of them had thoughts about the hostess Oscars here's here's what they had to say I always loved being out there I I loved the guess the trusts you know that the movie academy had a made to to get me out that I always I felt like there was a great honor to do it and I think that when you have a show that's as long as it is is going to happen and I think the problem with the no hosting perhaps is that there's not somebody out there to capitalize on that moment ledge view had when the wrong Best Picture right who could forget that the one that's right but he does make a good point there he does make a good point that you can can bring it into the moment and and capitalize on it that is a very good point I hadn't thought of that someone says something that you can sort of have fun with right that just sort of right out there and then they bring it back and make everybody sort of laugher connect over that moment we just had a listener say six three oh what about the la la land fiasco that would be weird without a host because sort of look at each other like what that would that would have been terrible and and then on a lighter note I mean it's great when you have somebody you know when when Jack Palance remember that the one arm push up you know on the sages many years ago and of course and you know Billy came out and made a great joke about it because you know those are the things that you love love to see happen yeah my favorite also I think was on my list of favorites I should say Ellen DeGeneres remember that a normal than the selfie she took and then when she was busting Steven Spielberg around a telephone tell take the picture you know when I could change my point of view you're either going to go maybe on your side your honor but you know I heard you it coming in when you talk about once upon a time in Hollywood that really was one of my favorite favorite movies of the year I see like bill if this one is sort of got a little bit of an unfair advantage because it seems like one of those movies that people in the industry natural sort of are drawn to because it has history of historical factor I know it's sort of a bag I would love to see it with but it's it's one of my favorite but I think all of the momentum seems to be from the directors guild of the producers guild all of the different wards have been happened sounds like it's going to be nineteen seventeen which I liked very much but technically it had some incredible you know incredible beautiful moments but my favorite if I was going to pick one it would be once upon a time in Hollywood or parasite which of course is going to win trust me it's gonna win best foreign film the people that are further further Oscar parties if they want to fill out there if you get if you get some of those lesser known categories right you can win the Oscar Poole I've no I bet it's true that's a good strategy that's true yes I have eight one five Oscars praying for no politics I need a break yeah what do you think we all do I think we all do and I think that will be that's one thing that I hope we do have because I think after what we've all gone through in this country in the last few weeks I think yes no politics is a very good suggestion but it's interesting because in terms of all the acting categories I think they're pretty well locked into a whole I think it is going to win and I think most people do what do you think what you got for best supporting actress I think well that's what the one category where there could be a surprise in the usually is a surprise the one category excuse me would be best supporting actress because even though most people think it's gonna be Laura Dern was terrific as a divorce lawyer in marriage story you know who could possibly slip in there because he has won a few things as far as people from little women who played one of the daughters and that's one category but I do think it's gonna be Laura Dern for best Supporting Actor it's Brad Pitt as one everything is beloved by many people in Hollywood you know it's sort of his his year in his time and I think that's a pretty much of a lock in for Best Actress it's it's I think pretty much going to be Renee Zellweger for Judy plank Judy Garland and although I would look I would be disappointed if there was a real real upset here in Jersey ronin from little women one because I think she's terrific but they're all these categories have great nominees and of course for Best Actor again it's probably going to be Joaquin Phoenix because again he won everything so far incredible performance I didn't see G. R. A. Renee Zellweger in Judy but I didn't know that that was not universally loved by critics no it was not what happened there was everybody pretty much loved her I mean I agree with this the movie itself was just sort of you know just so so I think the reason she's basically the nominee the only nominee for that movie there may be a cost and it might be a minor on the minor categories I shouldn't call minor but one of the most popular categories but the movie itself was not great she was what made the movie yeah I you know I I didn't see that because of sort of the reviews the main one that would be worth revisiting because I loved her and that was the online series where she was the rich woman who is trying to convince people a little comes of age is he was a recent series streaming and she was phenomenal and I just remember and she sings herself I mean the fact that she you know somebody's like a voice like garland which everybody knows so well the fact that you do your own singing I think is also a major push any and there's so many scenes in this movie you look and you think it's actually Judy Garland on stage and screen excuse me so I think it's and that's pretty much of a lock but there again you know you never that's pictures that that was one I mean I think it's probably going to be nineteen seventeen but I would be happy with virtually any of those you know that are up there there's nine nominees you know because they changed the rules a few years ago but you know a lot of talk this year the parasite which definitely is gonna win best foreign film it might be the first year that the best foreign film also wins Best Picture that would be somewhat of an upset but that would be a fascinating thing to see what is the Netflix series that Renee Zellweger was and I was trying to remember to remember bill out we only have a minute here but if you if you are going to the movies this weekend as I know some people do when they try to say Hey I'm gonna catch up on some of these Oscar nominated films what what was one of the films you would suggest the probably not many people have gone to I think I don't know I think first of all I think you know probably nineteen seventeen I think it's it's a kind of a tough movie to watch many ways but I think that that that seems to be the front runner for Best Picture if you haven't seen once upon a time in Hollywood definitely catch that and I'll tell you a parasite is be the third one because that is such it's got a real twist to it I can't tell you much and I would give it away but it that would be the film that is probably the one most unique dark comedy that come down the pike in a long time okay you got my attention on that I'm gonna check that one out bills record thank you so much for checking in with us at any time good to hear your voice same

Paul Theroux's Mexico Journey
"More than fifty years of writing about his epic journeys in Travel Books and novels. Paul through has recently finished a series of road trips on the back roads of Mexico. He wanted to see for himself who lives there how they live and what's really behind the headlines about a migration crisis from south of the US border and by the way you'll have to pardon my weak voice at the time we recorded our interview. It's better now. Paul theroux welcome Doc Ricketts a pleasure to be with you. You know this is such an exciting adventure you went on and right at the beginning of the book you write the Mexican border in the edge of the known world only shadows and danger beyond it and working figures. Hungry criminal predatory fanged fanatical enemies an ungovernable rabble eager to pounce on the unwary traveller so you decided to travel. Tell us where you went on this trip. And why by the rest of that senators and a Tutti fruity of grizzled gringos accident. So why why. Because I noticed that people were stereotyping Korea Typing Mexicans Mexicans who come across the border why they come that illegal looking for welfare making trouble and I thought one of the reasons as we traveled your a great traveller. Rick is to destroy the stereotype to find out what people are really like. What's this story and we find the come from? All sorts of places is in Mexico they might be billion as they might be millionaires. That might have no money at all. Some people in Mexico have less than the average person in Kenya or Bangladesh Rush. So it's not a simple situation but to see it at its best or to see it most clearly. I thought I WANNA go alone. I want to go on my own car. I WANNA the drive up and down. The border. The border that everybody talks about but no one knows that firsthand as written about much and I want to see it drive along the aboard and then drive deep into Mexico and I thought I bought a car for this purpose secondhand car. That wasn't very notable and off. I went not very noticeable but it had Massachusetts license plates on it. That was a little unfortunate. The police said you know they. They looked at my plates. And then they pull you off the road and they say Whether or Saturday do you know what I can do to you and you say what exactly do you want. And then they say pay me some more Didi. Is that the open. This happens but people say how awful and I think. Yeah how awful but on the plane of snakes is travel book and travelers travel writers. Rav Paul Writers have the last word so I have the last word and that's a side of Mexico. The police are excited. Mexico that exists and as travelers were not looking in for la La land in Orlando. We're looking for the reality. Go south of the border. We're looking to see things as they are the good the bad the ugly the the fun that whatever it is the sunshine the rain you know I was the Peace Corps joined the Peace Corps nineteen sixty three and I went to Central Africa. I didn't know what I was GonNa find was into the wild blue yonder and what I found was not at all what I was expecting. Not at all our guest right now and travel with. Rick Steves is author Paul. He just published an account of his road. Trips from the back roads of Mexico his new book introduces us to the people he met and explains what he learned about life in Mexico far from the comforts of resorts in the safety. Excuse tollways the books called on the plane of snakes. Your book is about the wall and I'm fascinated by walls in my travels. The Berlin Wall the walls between the Protestant and Catholic neighborhoods in Belfast. The wall of between Palestine and Israel and in this wall I remember when I was in the Holy Land on one side. The Wall looked a certain way. And then the other from the other side that looked a lot different tell us about the actual wall standing there especially on the Mexican side looking at it. What's it like where the wall is a big piece of iron mongering That looks like it looks like a prison wall. I mean it looks ah fence it has slats in it. The first one that I saw was in Nogales may be eight years ago or possibly more and it wasn't a wall that you could see through. It was sexually big iron plates steel plates. I guess and there were there. Were Rusty thirty feet high. You couldn't see through. It looked like it didn't look like offense at all actually looked like a wall That's now slats. What is it looked like it? It looks like something that is surmountable. Looks like you could climb over and people do it. Looks like could tunnel under it and people do it also looks very beautiful. It looks like a piece of sculpture by the artist Christo it looks like Krista went to the border and said I'm going to show the world. What a border looks like in metal and so the the fence to steal border fence goes up and down through hill and Dale undulating up? As far as the I can see and you think how amazing but how primitive too because house obviously keep any vote. No when I go as a traveler to these walls the odd thing is I can pass them easily. I can go from Israel to Palestine I in the cold where I could go between East and West. You were south of the wall and you wrote about the women in the diners there that kind of saw you you as a maybe a ticket to the north. It must have been interesting for you to be in these hardscrabble. Little spots in the wall was so close and you could just waltz right back and forth. They couldn't not only that it's only yeah waltzing bank in Nogales Arizona. You visit door in the wall. The first time I saw it there was a turnstile where you're in a street in Arizona. You know with parked in the sunshine. POKKA walk down the end of the street. Go through the door in your in Mexico is your show you I mean I showed by. Id and just by walking through a door. That for travel is such an amazing experience to me. It was an experience of the kind that I'd I'd never had before I've cross borders. You've been through many borders but most borders that are memorable you walk across Kenya Ethiopia China China and Russia Kazakhstan Benetton wherever you know Canada and say but Mexico is it's the wall and also there's another language behind the wall is cuisine beyond the wall and the women that you mentioned some of whom want to go over the wall around it to work in a motel or a hotel in the states Have left children behind husband's behind and the going what I found. Is that coming to make a living

"la land" Discussed on Cautionary Tales
"Here's the question we should be asking about that. Bizarre Dr Evening at the Oscars how is it even possible. For the distracted Accountant Brian Colon to give Warren Beatty the wrong envelope type A few minutes earlier. The envelope for best actress the envelope containing the card that read Emma Stone La La land. That envelope ELOPE had been in the hands of Leonardo DiCaprio as he stood onstage announcing her win. How could that envelope have made? Its way into the the hands of Warren Beatty. The answer it didn't there were two envelopes. Every envelope for every category had duplicate version waiting in the wings. These duplicate envelopes were there as a safety measure and that safety measure. He's what made the fiasco possible. Galileo's principal had bitten hard Charles Perrault's argument is is that when systems of both complex and tightly coupled we should expect catastrophic accidents. Does the Academy Awards ceremony fit not description it certainly tightly coupled you can't easily interrupt to live. TV spectacular in front of millions of people to ask for advice ice. The show must go on yet. The ceremony doesn't have to be complex giving an envelope to Warren Beatty doesn't have to be complex. But you can make complex if you try Brian Callanan's partner in crime that evening was Martha. Ruis like cullman element. She was a senior accountant. The pair of them carried identical briefcases with an identical set of envelopes on the day of the show. We'll get the ballots and Brian and I will go to the theater on two separate roads. He'll go one route and I'll go another route. Putz how moth Ruis helpfully flee explain things to journalists just before Oscar night. Both she and Colin had been proudly giving interviews about the foolproof system. We do that data to ensure that in case anything happens to one the other will be there on time and delivering. What's needed with the full set? We do have security measures off until where at the theater and delivering that envelope to the presenter. Just seconds before they walk on stage will be in two different locations. Brian will be on stage right and all the onstage left it all sounds sensible and in many ways it is sensible. It's also complicated. The system of twin envelopes meant that every time an envelope was opened on stage age it's duplicates in the wings had to be set aside moth Ruis stage left handed the envelope for best actress. Two Leonardo di caprio PRIO leaving. Brian Cullen stage right with a job of discarding duplicate the job. He failed to do. If that hadn't been that that set of twin envelopes Warren Beatty could never have been given the wrong one. So bad design helped caused the Oscar Kaffee Lasko. It also helped cause the accident at Three Mile Island and a complicated safety system was at the root of the Oscar Cafasso it was also at the root of the Fermi one accident but it's not just Oscars in nuclear power. I promised you a financial shaw catastrophe too. And this woman both safety systems and typography at the blame you might even start to see the banking crisis. It's a very different light in September. Two Thousand Eight at the height of the financial the crisis. An Insurance Executive named Robert William Start requested a meeting with Tim. Geithner Guidina would like to be the Treasury Secretary Retrea at the time he was the president of the New York Federal Reserve that meant he was responsible for supervising wall. Street's banks including including Lehman Brothers which was on the brink of collapse row but William Stat was the boss of an insurance company called. AIG and since A G wasn't a bank. It was far from obvious why Williamson it was kindness problem in his book too big to fail the journalist Andrew Ross sorkin reports the intimate details of this ill-fated meeting. I'm really sorry Mr Williams debt Mr Cotner. It's going to be a few minutes no problem I have time. I'm sorry I know you've been waiting a long time Mr Gardiner's on the phone to the boss Breath Lehman brothers. He's up to his eyeballs. Lehman Tim Guy was also exhausted. had been on an overnight flight from a banking conference in Switzerland. He must have felt completely overwhelmed. Who wouldn't have Baba's it sorry to keep you waiting coming William Stat. Got His moment he badly needed to be able to borrow from the Fed. Not Normally something edgy would be allowed to do. But he also didn't want to panic guide he needed to walk a tightrope to suggest that AIG could use some help but wasn't actually bankrupt. Is this critical or emergency Z.. Situation Bob will you know. Let me just say that it would be very beneficial day gene geithner. Perhaps I can beat lethal with you. William Start handed guide ner a briefing note buried deep within. It was a fast ticking time bomb the largest just firms on Wall Street were relying on. AIG to pay out insurance against financial trouble. The total sum insured was a truly ludicrous. Two thousand seven hundred billion dollars. Aig couldn't possibly pay if all all the claims came in and it was starting to look as though they might but that meant that the big Wall Street banks wouldn't get the insurance is payments they were relying on Aig was both a bigger threat to the financial system than Lehman brothers and far more surprising one if AIG I g was a safety net. It was one that wasn't going to break anyone's fall but to realize that Tim geithner would actually have to read need an absorb the information the note and he was busy really busy so instead he filed it away then turned end back to the Lehman Brothers problem. AIG would melt down a few days later. The parallels with Oscar night are uncanny for one thing guy who's no fool had no idea how to interpret what he was looking at. It was unexpected and the key information was buried the small print fading away in Warren Beatty know the feeling. Then there's Galileo's principal safety systems don't always make a safe those insurance contracts was opposed to offset risk not create it right the by now. We know that safety systems also also introduce new ways for things to go wrong. The insurance contracts that were about to destroy. Aig we're called. CREDIT DEFAULT SWAPS SWAPS. Let become popular as a way to offset risk with the blessing of regulators. They seemed smart idea. Just as the third support for for the columns seems like a smart idea and the metal filters at the FERMI reactor and the duplicate set of award envelopes but they backfired Wall Street banks were relying on these credit default swaps to keep them safe if there was trouble when it became clear that insurance companies such his. AIG couldn't possibly pay out. The banks. All scrambled to sell off their risky investments. That the exact same time for the exact same same reason. A few days after William's stance had met gainer officials and bankers worked through the weekend on the Lehman Brothers problem only only on Sunday. Evening did one of those bankers receive a request for a Treasury official to ask if she could drop everything and work on rescuing. Aig instead the surprising phone call was greeted with a response that was unsurprisingly. Unsuitable for certainly is hold on. Hold on your calling the Sunday night saying that we just spent the entire weekend on layman and now we have this. How huck did we spend the past forty eight hours on the wrong thing? How indeed for the same reason? They gave the Oscar to the wrong movie confusing confusing communication and above all a safety system that created a brand new way to fail the banking crisis crisis of two thousand and eight shook the world financial system and destroyed millions of jobs more than a decade later. We're still living with the consequences quences. It was in its way a more serious crisis than any nuclear accident. It was certainly far. Graver than a bungalow at the Oscars yet the same problems for the roots of all these accidents after the la La land shambles Vanity Fair reported. What'd the Oscars have an intense six step plan to avoid another envelope disaster? The six steps include lewd getting rid of the two accounting partners. Brian Callanan and mouth overseas and the Tweeden sets of envelopes. Instead says Vanity Fair there will be three partners. A third partner will sit in the show's control. With the producers. All three partners will have a complete set of envelopes. If having two sets coast problem having three sets is better right. I'm not don't Shaw. Galileo would agree..

"And that tiny. If Best Actress had been prominent Warren Beatty wouldn't have been confused. He would have known that he had those Gong Card in his hand. And if Emma stone had been in larger type than Lowland Faye dunaway wouldn't have blurted out the name of the wrong film it would have been awkward for Beatty and Dunaway to walk off stage to get the right envelope but not nearly as awkward as not walking offstage to get the right envelope so the academy should have hired a designer. But I know the only ones imagine that your the night shift supervisor at a nuclear power plant. It's four o'clock in the morning and you don't know it yet. But the turbines system that draws away the heat from the reactor core has just shut down. You'RE GONNA have to make some quick decisions. Assuming you can figure out what's going wrong and why let's Let's see can you doing the first few minutes of the accident? More than one hundred alarms went off and there was no system for suppressing the unimportant signals. So that operators could concentrate on. The SIGNIFICANT ALARMS. Information was not presented in a clear and sufficiently understandable form. That's from the overview of the official inquiry into what was then arguably the world's most serious nuclear accident at Three Mile Island in nineteen nine. It destroyed the reactor came close to a serious release of radioactive material on the eastern seaboard and shattered the reputation of the American nuclear industry. It striking how quickly. The inquiry focused in on the question of design but twenty one who studies. How accidents happen. It's not surprising at all. The plants control rooms were so poorly. That error was the inevitable. Don't Norman Director of the design lab at UC. San Diego was asked to help. Analyze the problems at three mile. Island design was at fault. Not The operators. The control panels were baffling. They displayed almost seven hundred fifty lights some next to the relevant switches or above them or below them sometimes. Nowhere near the relevant switch toll red lights indicated open valves or active equipment. Green indicated closed valves or inactive equipment. But since some of the lights would typically read and others were normally green. The overall effect with dizzying. So yes. The operators made mistakes at Three Mile Island but better design they might not have Warren Beatty and Faye dunaway. Would sympathize. But something else went wrong that night to the Oscars. Something deeper and more surprising. It's a strange effect and it was first observed by a man less famous looking at why things go wrong and more famous for looking at the stars. Galileo Galilei lay is known for his astronomy and because his work was consigned to the church his index. Lebron prohibitory him. The list of forbidden books but the great man's final work opens with a less provocative topic the correct method of storing stone column on a building site. Bear with me this book from Sixteen Thirty Eight. He's going to explain the Oscar fiasco and much more. I must have related circumstance which is worthy of our attention as indeed are all events which happened contrary to expectation especially when a precautionary measure turns out to be a cause of the disaster. A precautionary measure turns out to be a cause of disaster. That's very interesting Galileo. Please go on a large marble column was laid out so that it's two ends rested each upon piece of beam. I can picture that in my mind. Support the column while it's being stored horizontally ready for use. If you lay it on the ground it may get stained. And you'll probably break when you try to get ropes underneath it to put up right so yes store it flat but propped up by a support at one end to support at the other. But what if the column Com support its own white like that and simply snaps in half? Galileo has thought of that. A little later eat occurred to a mechanic that in order to be doubly. Sure of it's not breaking the middle. It would be wise to lay a third support midway. This seems to all an excellent idea. Yes if two supports a good surely three supports a better. It was quite the opposite for not. Many months passed before the column was found cracked and broken exactly above the new meter support. How did that happen? One of the end supports had after a long while become decayed and sunken. But the me either. One remained hard and strong thus causing one half of the column to project in the air without any support. The central support didn't make the column safer it pressed into it like the central pivot of a seesaw snapping it in half. Galileo's tale isn't really about storing columns and neither is mine. It's about what I'm going to call Galileo's principle the steps we take to make ourselves safe sometimes lead us into danger. The problem Galileo described is well known to safety engineers. There's an awful of fine scholarly journal process safety progress titled No Good Deed Goes Unpunished case studies of incidents and potential instance caused by protective systems. These case studies are magnificent. There's a chemical plant where to pressure relief systems. Interact in a way that means neither from work. There's a flare designed to destroy pollutants which ends up causing the release of toxic gases. There's an explosion suppression device that causes an explosion. This kind of thing happens more than you might think. An example is one of the earliest nuclear accidents at Fermi Wong an experimental reactor in Michigan. It's badly remembered now except in Gil. Scott Heron Song. We almost lost Detroit this time. The operators at Fermi one lost control of the nuclear reaction for reasons that were baffling to them. Some of the reactor fuel melted. It was all touch and go eventually. They got the reactor under control. Shut it all down and waited until it was safe to take it all apart. It was almost a year before the reactor had cooled enough to identify the culprit. A piece of metal. The size of a crushed bitcon can had blocked the circulation of the coolant in the reactor core. It was a filter that had been installed at the last moment for safety reasons. At the express request of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. It had come loose and caused the entire problem. Galileo's principal strikes again. Why do safety systems sometimes backfire? The wise old sociologist Charles. Perrault's most famous book is called normal accidents. It's about how certain kinds of system a vulnerable to catastrophic failure so vulnerable in fact that we should view accidents in those systems as inevitable. The vulnerable systems have two features. The first is that there. What Perot calls tightly coupled in a tightly coupled system one thing leads to another and another and another it's like domino toppling which is actually a great example of tightly coupled system. Once you start it's hard to hit the pause button. A second feature is complexity. Complex system has elements that in Toronto in effective ways a rainforest is a complex system. So is Harvard University but Harvard. University usually isn't tightly coupled. If there's a problem there's also time to find a solution a system that's both complex and tightly coupled is dangerous the complexity means that will occasionally be surprises. The tight coupling means that there will be no time to deal with surprises Charles. Perrault's theory explains Galileo's principal every time you had a feature that's designed to prevent problem you're adding complexity the middle support for the column added complexity. So did the safety filter that damaged the Fermi one reactor safety systems. Don't always make us safe.

"This a simple way to tell the story of THIS FIASCO AS Warren Beatty won't come stage. Brian Cullens job was to hand him the envelope for best picture instead. Cullen handed over the envelope for best actress a few moments earlier. That award had been worn by Emma stone for her performance in La La land and so when beatty the envelope he saw Emma Stone.

He didn't understand what he was looking at. And rather than say the wrong thing. He hesitated then he turns to Faye dunaway. She was the person who actually authored the title of the wrong film. But it wasn't her fault either. Imagine her situation. She's on stage in front of the most star-studded audience imaginable plus tens of millions watching live on television. Beatty seems to be messing around. And she doesn't know why the first thing she sees on the cards. Lala land then straightaway. That's what she says some people blame beatty. Some people blamed dunaway. Most people blame Brian. Cullen the accountant who handed over the wrong envelope but all of those people. I think I'm making a mistake. You almost a decade ago years before this fiasco I interviewed one of the world's most important thinkers on how accidents happen. He's a sociologist. Named Charles Perot. And he told me something that stuck in my mind that we always blame the operator. It's always. He says a case of pilot error. Charles Perrault is a wild man. He's older than the Academy Awards themselves. He was full back in nineteen twenty nine when they were first presented. And Perot is absolutely right. We inevitably look for someone to blame and that inclination leads US astray. Our instinct is to blame the Accountant. Brian Callanan he did give beatty the wrong envelope. He was distracted. He tweeted a photograph of Emma Stone. Holding her Oscar statuette at a time he should have been focusing on giving beatty the right envelope. He was on his firearm. Enjoying being host to one of the world's most beautiful people at moment of triumph. We can all learn a lesson from that. Get off your phone. Get off your phone when you're supposed to be having dinner with your family. Get off your phone when you're supposed to be driving and get off your phone when you're supposed to be giving the envelope containing the Best Picture Card to Warren Beatty. But the reason that it's a mistake to simply blamed Cullinan is because colon was just being human. Humans are always getting distracted. Humans always making mistakes if our system's coat with those mistakes and it's hopeless to demand better. Humans we need better systems when Lala land fleetingly worn Moonlights Oscar. Some rich and successful people suffered some embarrassment in some heartache. But nobody died yet. The lesson of the fiasco is far from trivial. The same kind of mistake in different situations compete catastrophic. Such mistakes can lead to nuclear accidents and financial meltdowns. And when I say can lead. I mean half lead. Such disasters have already occurred so. Let's try to understand what really happened. That strange night at the Oscars. Perhaps we can use that insight to prevent far more serious calamities..

I think I'm ready yeah I haven't I haven't seen everything. I don't even know if Michael Phillips is seen everything she's major so yeah. I feel prepared. They're still blind spots but this should be I think appropriate to our styles of preparing preparing for a show you methodically doled out the movies took them in over a few weeks and I crammed just didn't college. I procrastinated and I had to hit everything thing at the last minute to be fair. It helps when we actually commit to something for weeks. Had A title which is very rare for the show is rare well. Let's find out if Michael Phillips has is in fact seen every Judy garland movie we welcome in the man who will be handling proctoring duties for our garland examined is Michael Phillips from the Tribune. How are you good to see you goes good to see you. It's been a while I mean it's been a long time. I know it'd be on. I know we do this. More regular like Obama's. First Tournament feels like a slight exaggerate so how many how many do you think you've seen countered them up the garlic first of all. I had a wrong. I thought it was beverly girl. I'm on my three sons so I prepared all wrong. That's next show my next issue. That'll be a download killer. Yes but you know I'd say if you look at all the titles including the the obscure secure ones before she was advised. I've seen two-thirds maybe enough to feel pretty smug about my knowledge base compared to you guys okay okay well. That's all that really matters but let me ask you. Is there one at the tip of your tongue. That is a blind spot. You're embarrassed about. Is there a garland film. You've always meant to see that you haven't y actually I joked. I joked with the email to you guys earlier today about about pigskin parade or actually it was on twitter yes yes. I've never seen pigskin parade now. How you were just needling I was kneeling. I haven't seen pigskin parade. so you know if we can do a whole show on that next week at appreciate it could get to it but no that's of the biggies you know there's a few others in the early forties that I haven't seen him never seen presenting Lily Mars a lot of other things that would just sort of make you look click nipper the dog just staring. You know like what presenting. Lily were so these obscure titles to to to share explore someday later later in the show. We'll talk a little bit about hustlers. The new dramas set in the world of UPSCALE GENTLEMEN'S CLUBS IT Stars J. Lo and Constance Wu Michael and I both had a chance to see that that movie we open to big box office numbers last weekend. We've also got pull results to our question about which acclaimed movie director needs to make a movie set in space a lot of great feedback from that one including one Josh like last week. I might just be setting aside in my back pocket. Just bring on you upon. I'm going to have to leave the studio. We'll see but first I judy garland. The garland biopic Judy starring Renee Zellweger opens in limited release including here in Chicago next weekend the reviews so far pretty pretty much what you'd expect from the genre that Josh knows as his most detested movie genre the biotechs a little strong but not my favorite Los Zellwegger herself and getting a lot of praise now Michael. You have made a little bit of the festival around here lately. Did you see no no tomorrow to screening tomorrow. Does the does the listener goodwill no no. It doesn't know that you're going to see gonNA see a trend. We will have to have you back on to hear your thoughts. I could go on singing. I'll I'll go on singing. That's what I'll of course we may or may not get to a full review of Judy here on the show but we did want us the movie as an opportunity to spend some time time on Garland herself who until recently was kind of a blind spot for both of us Josh with the exception of the wizard of Oz of course it really was the Manelli marathon where we got to dive into her work. Is it fair to say that maybe the wizard of Oz isn't the best introduction one could have to Judy garland because Saad as a kid and many times sense and I don't know. Oh that a place to her strengths now that I've seen obviously over the rainbow is a central piece of focus and made her you know center to another level level of notoriety and fame but the character I don't think is sort of a passive character could be a little whiny and I held off on Garland for a while thinking meanwhile that's Judy Garland and then I think it was producers. Sam's pushing of Easter parade a couple of years ago. That was my first non wizard Judy Garland film the One with Fred Astaire and I was just completely shocked. At what a great president. She wasn't that so very different and then you're right. It was the Manelli marathon that really gave me a good sense of what she could do as well as catching up with nineteen fifty four is a star is born when the remake came out so yeah than really immersing myself men for this list. I in her stuff and surprise surprise Adam She's really something yeah. Check out the big brain on Josh. He's done all his homework. Shoot down the conclusion Asian. Is that needs to know about you the wizard of Oz I was. I'm a crammer like Adam. I'm doing the most I could watch the catch up on stuff. I hadn't seen in years years and years and stuff. I I knew I liked but hadn't seen in a long long time and just the the real pleasure of watching shing concentrated way of you know a little a little bit here and there for a couple of days of somebody who is just such an astounding triple threat who did did the top of the top of the heap and I mean I mean she. It's it's there's a handful of other. Mgm Stars Gene Kelly Fred mystere and then you know one or two others but it's it's Kelly astaire in Garland and then there's everybody else and that and that's when you think about what that actually means and when you talk about the work they did together with the garlanded with Kellyanne garlanded with a stereo. It's just you know. I don't have the same love for Easter parade that you do Josh but you know the talent level is just kind of astonishing though and it's just sort of a I don't know I don't I can't even be cynical about how what what a what a strong response. I had just kind of like just sort of like soaking up the talent because it's not somebody I grew up with loving from age eight on on you know I mean I mean I. I wasn't really a wizard of Oz annual viewer at that age you know because if the marksmen does Ron I was mark of course they were the Marx brothers. Those were not in the was it of is you know I would've actually loved to see him as ten minutes but the radar now jokes aside Josh I do think it's fair to say and this May bear out as we get into our picks that we've discovered there are depths to judy. Garland is a performer that probably aren't fully on display away in the wizard of Oz. So why don't we go ahead and jump into those picks we are going to devote this show to our top five. Judy garland moments and we're going to start it off with an an expert voicemail a guest opinion here from a previous contributor to the show does Ray Garcia Michael. You put us in touch with desert initially. She Played Madeleine Colin in Damian Chazelle debut film Guide Madeline on a park bench. She's currently an associate professor of Latin American Latino and Caribbean studies at Dartmouth and if you're a longtime listener the show you'll recall that she joined us for our top five musical numbers back in two thousand sixteen that was a tie in with our review of Damian Chazelle la La land and she's got a great pick for her favorite Judy Garland. Hi this is Deborah Garcia leaving a message for the Judy Garland show show if I had to choose my favorites judy moments which is indeed a tough task it would have to be rather obvious choice. I'm afraid of the have yourself Merry Little Christmas Song in Navy in Saint Louis. Your saw aw little let your heart the next year. Oh it's it's really an anomaly in musicals of that era in the sense that it is a song that is quite dark. It's a moment that's quite dark. even rather kind of foreboding it's Judy of course in her character esther trying to console her younger sister sure as they prepare to leave St Louis and moved to New York. The lyrics of course are storied lyrics. Now we know that there were at least two different versions of lyrics. The first is one being much darker than the first and it's it's something that quite rare for Hollywood musicals of the period to delve into such dark seems uh-huh change and family separation and perhaps separation is eternal and even though she's trying to comfort her little sister to D- it's clear that esther has her own doubts about what is about to happen and we hear that I think in in Judy Garland's voice voice up here. She's a masterful singer so we hear both the kind of conviction and hopefulness times that things will work out all right and then at other moments I think including the very very end of the song is she seeing those last final words we hear that there is some doubt there on her part some day soon you who beat him and and also just say that that for me you know that song has always been a kind of touch tone in my life something that has helped me kind of mark the various listen turns of my journey's first away from home three thousand miles away to college again leaving a college that I came to love and considering home and embarking on a new career and then to of course marriage and and having a kid and every year I revisit is it that film and that song and it helps me to kind of chart where I've been but also to help me brace myself for the future. Thanks

"I have never seen la la land. Thank you guys for being here. That's <hes> that's it for us today. Just a people also for the first time also having never seen while elena jason burke. Thank you know i have not seen it very exciting. Writing actively proactively not seen avoided scenes. I also have i do not want to see their movies but this i believe you. Both i believe you both have been in a situation joyce where you could have watched it. Absolutely maybe do nothing. I mean it's like ideally a great plain movie right because you're just nothing else to do but even at that point i'm like i could watch somebody <unk> by straight up. Don't i would rather stare at a spirit airlines logo. Then i have seen it is is fine literally only fine you ever see a movie where every single thing about it is good and it's bad yeah. I see what you're like. Directing is good the acting good good there's music. I love musical and then you leave and you're like. I never wanna be around that. There's something about it so i think it bothers me that it's a musical you too. That's an i i. I like music and i have liked musicals but there's something about a musical as a film they just bugs me as genre but then further bothers me and and i think this is why i really don't wanna see it is that it's a musical set in l._a. About l. a. a movie out movies and all of that movies about l._a. I tend to love but the fact that is a musical definitely means. It's a simplified version of l. a. and no stories. You know what you'll see in my you you know what what could be. I don't know if it's simplified. I've seen the movie. I'm pretty sure one white guy saved jazz. The let's do the script and then we'll see before we get into. We gotta tease. We play a game on the podcast. Jason never has played or heard this game before. This game is called. Guests who movie kyle's dad is describing having having only watched the trailer never having heard of the movie and so we're gonna tease. It continues it a little bit okay. She's whispering all right. That's all we have for now for now. We'll get back to it at the kyle calls. His dad 'cause his mom and has her record his his dad describing trailers. He'll take notes and reread the notes. It's so funny and you tell him what to watch. You pick the movies. We've kinda got down a rabbit uh-huh. I think he literally went typed in movie trailer and so that's why the dark knight was the first one we just kinda gone off suggested videos from that the entire <hes> any right now <hes> <hes> it's meandered and it's really helped me learn about movie trailers where movies from the nineties seemed to have the best trailers. Here's here's like movies. Seventies eighties movies left the trailer for like ferris bueller it literally start since like this guy is fairest bueller up. He's like he's is about to have a day off and he's skipping school to go to a parade with his friend whose dads carl fly through the glass district voice over i and the two thousand and around like four or five on the trailer is no voice over but the whole plot everything it'll be like there's the joker he's robbing a bank batmans coming after two faces faces getting burned off everything sweet spot of the nineties yeah and i don't even know elliott's a lot of goalless vague. I remember like the heat trailer the trailer where you could give away everything yes because it's like the first movie deniro and l._a. Move great l._a.

Caroline said from business Waymo is the first company and California allow to test robot cars on public roads with no human driver behind the steering wheel. It said Tuesday, the California Department of motor vehicles has given way. Mo a permit for up to forty fully autonomous cars to drive both day and night on city streets rural highways and highways with posted speeds up to sixty five miles per hour. The company which is the self-driving unit of Google parent. Alphabet did not say how soon the vehicles might roll Waymo like most companies testing self-driving cars has long put backup drivers and engineers in the front seats vehicles for safety purposes and to gather data on the car's performance the permit. It has obtained is the first of its kind in the state our vehicles can safely handle fog and light rain. And testing those conditions is included in our permit. Waymo said in a blog post, we will gradually begin driverless testing on city streets in a limited territory and over time expand the area that we drive in as we gain confidence and experience the company's Chrysler Pacifica, white minivans will ditch drivers initially starting around. It's Mountain View headquarters and neighboring Sunnyvale Los Altos. Those outposts hills and Palo Alto Waymo employee's will still be aboard to start just not in the driver's seat. Eventually the company will offer rides to the public as it does in Arizona before expanding beyond those cities in Santa Clara county Waymo will follow the DMV requirements to notify new communities and submit a request to the DMV way moment is the progenitor of the worldwide race to develop autonomous cars after pioneering the field with a secretive moonshot project had Google that began in two thousand nine its success convinced others that atonomy was feasible in the near future. After prompting automakers technology companies and startups to pour billions of dollars into what they believe will be revolution. As transformative has the invention of the car itself. Waymo has been testing it driving fleet now roughly one hundred vehicles in California for years, but like the sixty other self-driving companies in California, it is had drivers ready to take control if something went wrong nationwide. It tests about six hundred cars in twenty five cities in February the California DMV finalized regulations for California cars to operate. Without drivers Waymo applied for a permit to do. So in April, California has been working toward this milestone for several years, and we will continue to keep the public safety in mind as this technology evolves. Said DNB director Jean Shamoto in a statement. However, some consumer advocates cautioned that they think robot cars aren't ready for public roads and threatens safety that argument gained credence with some high profile accidents, including. Luding one in Arizona in March. When an Uber self driving car struck and killed a pedestrian even though it detected her in the roadway ahead. The cars backup driver was watching a video. Although drivers are supposed to remain alert. The DMV is simply trusting Waymo without any real verification, and is putting our safety at risk said John Simpson privacy and technology director of consumer watchdog in a statement, he referred to drive list cars as a Kintu playing a video game. Except lives will be at stake. Some states such as Zona where Waymo has been testing truly a Thomas cars for over a year already allow no driver cars until now California only allowed them on private test tracks which as go meant him station in concord and the former castle airbase in Mercer county where Waymo tests to forego human drivers, the DMV requires companies to provide insurance or a bond of five million dollars and to self certified that they're autonomous cars can navigate roads and have been tested in the planned area. Of operations the cars must comply with all federal safety regulations. For now, that means robot cars must have steering wheels brake pedals and other manual controls. As the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not yet issued waivers for cars to omit manual controls. Among other California requirements companies must have remote operators who can communicate with passengers and send the cars recommendations for how to proceed if the robots get stumped. Because of transmission delays, operators do not actually drive the cars remotely companies also must have a plan for interacting with law enforcement Waymo released its plan this month, it involves education for first responders and the ability for them to easily contact twenty four seven Waymo phone support way. Most permit allows the driverless cars to give rights only to employees and non paying members of the public. The DMV has a separate permit system for offering paid no driver rise in the Phoenix area. Waymo gives rides to about four hundred households. Is that use an app to summon? It's robot cars for their everyday trips to school, work nights out, etc. Most still operate with backup drivers help shape. The future of self driving cars says Waymo 's website forever since to apply as early writers. The company says Amazon is where it will. I offer a commercial robot taxi service, the company plans, a similar early writer program in California for people who live in its planned service area. But hasn't yet said when that will start.

Visit SF symphony dot org slash film for details and information. Remembering Hank Greenwald, the gentlemen, humorist by Bruce tank ins, tracking hang Greenwald's broadcasting career is a bit like trying to identify every song ever performed by Bob Dylan. There's a new discovery around every corner Greenwald who died at eighty three on Monday covered. Syracuse football during the heyday of Ernie Davis Floyd little and Larry's uncle he was the voice of USF basketball for a spell in the nineteen seventies. He wants hosted a weekly forty Niners television show appearing one night in a helmet. So comically large it came down over his shoulders. And that was Hank. John Miller fondly recalled anything for a laugh, and then there was that visit Portland in nineteen sixty five. It was a western Hockey League trip covering the San Francisco seals against the Portland Bucker ruse and during a quick stop in Seattle Greenwald hap-. To meet a woman named Carla writer. They had a very innocent date and when Greenwald returned to Seattle three years later on a San Francisco warriors trip, they launched a relationship. He was such a gentleman Carla recalled this week, I think we went out three times before he kissed me. I said to myself my God, what's with this guy. The gentleman happen to be extremely funny and bound for glory in his profession. It was his wit. That really got me Carlo said, he always told me life with him would never be dull. And it certainly wasn't the two were engaged in nineteen seventy and Greenwald had big plans. He traveled to Australia the year before and fell in love with the country so much so that the two spent their honeymoon. They're back in San Francisco where they had a two bedroom. Two bath apartment on Nob hill for three hundred sixty five dollars a month. They arranged a return to Australia by freighter bay set sail on a sixty. Trip in June, nineteen Seventy-three with stops in Hong Kong and Malaysia. And quote, we were thinking of staying in Australia for good Carlos, Ed, but Hank founded difficult to get work, and we were both getting a little homesick. And by the time Douglas was born September nineteen seventy four we knew we'd be coming back. Doug grew up with his dad's passion for sports, especially baseball and next spring will be calling the Fresno grizzlies games in the Pacific coast league for the seventeenth year memo to major league baseball somebody get this man to the big leagues. He's that. Good life was more difficult with the greenwalds second child Kelly who was born with down syndrome. That's when Hank was at his best Carla said, he got me through the hard part with Kelly. There were times when I just wanted to throw in the towel with her. I just couldn't handle it. But Hank was right there. He told me from the day. She was born we are not giving up on this. Child to see Kelly today is to witness a person who has always been loved full of life. Enjoy as my colleague Henry showman described her this week and the family presses on without the man who joined the all time greats of the broadcasting business Dwayne Kuyper played four seasons with the giants after being traded from Cleveland and by the time of his retirement in nineteen eighty-five. He had a radio show on Ken Biard joining the giants broadcast team year later he had the good fortune of working with Greenwald. He was the perfect guy for me and Mike to learn the business Kuyper said this week, we were young energetic ballplayers coming off the field. And somehow he had to corral that energy and focus on making. Sure, we had a good broadcast. His preparation was. Unbelievable. He carried around little notebooks on each team filled with stuff he'd clip out of newspapers and scotch taped onto the page, and he felt that a true. Professional dresses that way, he wore a suit and tie every single day. Even if it was one hundred five degrees in Houston laughter invariably found its way into a Kuyper Greenwald booth. We were in Miami. And we heard these two deejays doing a spoof on the local broadcasters who constantly made mistakes and shrugged them off with the same. Catchphrase must have been the glare. I was just starting out on play by play doing a few innings before Hank took over. And I totally blew a call had the giants Willie McGee hitting a home run. When in fact, Jeffco nine caught it. So I'm trying to explain my way out of this. And I look over at hang and he's just shaking with laughter because he knows what he's gonna say must have been the glare. I'm sure the people at home wondered what was so damn funny. But Hank was laughing so hard I had to do the play by play the next inning. These are the moments that sustained Greenwald's memory and make it easier for everyone to excess. Such a great loss every night. You turn on the news. And it's a HP officer dying age twenty seven leaving behind three kids. Doug, Greenwald said or hearing about kids with cancer who don't live to age ten. This wasn't the case. My dad lived his dream doing major league baseball, even near the end listening to games on the radio. It brought him so much joy. He lived a full life.

Visit SF symphony dot org slash film for details and information. What Stephen Curry's on-court celebration say to warriors fans by Scott Oastler from sports. What was the message Stephen curry delivered to his fans during the most recent home game? A when he strolled alone into the spotlight after he had eight thirty one foot jumper late in the third quarter against Washington on Wednesday. The wizards called time out and curry sauntered to the midcourt circle. Flapping his arms up and down. The noise already had reached classic oracle din level, but curry wanted more. What was he saying to an outsider at might have seemed like look at me curry celebrations of himself and his team have become a signature to warriors fans. They are expressions of pure joy to critics. They are I roll worthy. Hot dogging with no access to curry right now. I'm gonna take a guess the crowd was really really loud the way curry was shooting. Seemed as if he might start launching threes from behind mid chord nothing shakes the dust off the oracle rafters like curry going deeper than Tolstoy. My guess is that curry was saying this remember last season when we all got bored us players, and you fence to even though we all knew better, we all just got a little bit blase pal about if we go back to the old way where it's all new and unbelievably cool, and none of us can believe it. We all know what kind of talent we have. But I need you guys to know that this won't be as easy as we sometimes make it look, and we could really use your help. Are you in Steve curse lectures to his team on mindfulness might be taking hold dig the moment because even the most rock solid team is nothing more than a dandelions waiting for a hurricane. Curry started the season ready to rock it every night. And he and the boys though, not yet in perfect sync are playing with purpose with mindfulness that night against the wizards. I don't think Corey was saying look at me he. He was saying to his teammates and two warriors fans. Look at us.

William Friedkin: 'The Exorcist'
"Hi, I'm Seth Abramovitch senior writer at the Hollywood reporter. And I'd like to welcome you to it happened in Hollywood. It's a new podcast. I'll be hosting with the help of my good friend. Chip pope. Hi there. That's me. I'm chip I'm a TV writer and a pop culture enthusiasts in each episode. We're going to be taking a journey backwards and time and revisiting some of the wildest chapters in Hollywood history iconic films zeitgeist TV shows infamous lawbreakers and just the random weirdness that color the place. We call LA La Land. Yes. And we think that you'll find in Hollywood the more things change the more. They stay the same. And that's what this show is about on each episode. We're going to be going to a key figure in whatever topic recovering and interviewing them. And then after the fact Seth, and I will comment on those prerecorded interviews, so let's get right to it. Welcome to the first episode of Hollywood. All right. Let's do some scene setting its December nineteen seventy three Richard Nixon one month before told a room full of reporters in Orlando, Florida. I am not a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. And in movie theaters. Cross the nation. Robert Redford, Paul Newman were playing crooks in a blockbuster hit called the sting. Then this thirty eight year old wonder canned Billy freed Ken comes along riding high. Having just won the Oscar for the French connection in seventy two. I love that. He's thirty eight year old wonderboy because the industry in nineteen seventy three's run by nine year olds he's young blood at thirty eight. He is he's whippersnapper and -ticipant for his chosen follow picture to French connection is at a fever pitch. His choice was the exercise. I now this was a big budget adaptation of smash hit novel about a little girl who gets possessed by the devil. The film was plagued by infighting delays. It went way over budget. He acted kind of crazy firing people left. And right people thought there was a curse on it yet. There was supposedly occurs. And there was all kinds of reports that this thing is going to be disaster. But when it finally came out, it became the all-time record breaking movie from Warner Brothers at the box office and went on to become one of the most admired and imitated horror films of all time. It's interesting that you should mention the sting because that was just like nostalgic entertainment that took place in the thirties. Whereas the exorcist was very edgy movie. Very hard are a hard arm and pretty much almost an ex. I mean, this is like a cold bucket. A holy water in the face of a pew Besson. Girl. I mean, even the Hollywood reporter this very publications seemed genuinely shocked by it in its review, they called it, quote, an abomination, and quote, and they call it the wretched excess of the year, but at the same time, they also suggested that it may be the most frightening movie ever made and forty five years later, it's still pretty much lays claim to that title of scariest movie ever made this week's special guest. We have the man responsible for making it. That's right director, William freakin. What throw the talk to this guy? He was great. He was absolutely wonderful. I didn't know what to expect. I thought he might be lawf- the wall get some of the films. He's made forget his age eighty two. I didn't know what we were going to get. But he was such a nice guy was just a thrill to sit at the feet of a master filmmaker.

Joaquin Phoenix to play The Joker in Scorsese produced film
"All right, everyone. Appreciate those. Sorry if you didn't get rid, but we are moving onto segment to now another addition of almost famous wherein we go over actors, famous or not to turn down what could have been roles of a lifetime. We're gonna start out with John Lithgow. He almost played the joker twice apparently in the original, Joe Dante version of the movie that never got made. Joe Dante was gonna make Batman. And then again in Tim Burton's first movie, he was gonna play the joker. I think John Lithgow would have been a great joker man for sure. It's almost like more of a. Classic joker? No. I don't know that it's an odd choice. I wonder how they would have done them up. I wonder if they would have given the the wig and the green hair and everything, or if they would have kind of leaned more on the way he actually looks. That's interesting if it would have been Tim Burton. I think he would have gone with the same. Yeah, same bookie. Yep. Yep. But Jack was great, but I could totally see John Lithgow down with that Emma stone one for LA La Land. But originally that movie was going to be a Watson. In fact, it was going to be mwana miles teller in LA La Land, a movie. You hate mean Hermioni from the Harry Potter films here, what. Is that a movie about a Potter? That's Harry.

He said it was very graphic and descriptive told angry. I like you. You're towns agai and if you wanna talk about it more. But thankfully he didn't. So Mark Wahlberg GIF y, sir, seriously and good for you. Jake Jilin hall for not being homophobic on. Back back two steps. Did you hear that? Joaquin, Phoenix is gonna play the joker in new joker only joker Centric movie. Oh, really like it. I love not a, what's his face from now. God let. Oh now they're done with that guy. I thought that he didn't see that movie, but I thought that was supposed to be the only good thing was his joker was good for like five seconds and really make up of the joker was like we had like gold teeth and like face tattoos, and it was just it was the weird choice to did you see that movie? I did. It's that bad. It's not good. Yeah. It's just like you could tell it was a movie. They had to like fix. They had to triage them and and post, and every scene was just a big set piece song with very little dialogue..
