"The delta variant of code nineteen is getting a lot of attention lately as it is likely to become the dominant strain in the us. In the near future this variant is more transmissible can infect a large portion of those who have only had one dose of the vaccine and can also cause more severe disease saying staff writer at the atlantic joins us for why health officials are using this very of concern to push more people to become vaccinated next. Younger millennials and gen z are ditching traditional investments and pouring money into cryptocurrency the technology that surrounds it. A big part of the shift is because many don't trust traditional investment institutions wanting to have fun with memes stocks. Also part of a community has they share research. Tip taylor locke money reporter at cnbc joined us for why younger. Investors are banking on crypto despite the volatility finally some finding creepy others find it comforting but people are finding loved ones who have passed on google map using a time travel feature on the site is allowing people to look at st. You going back to two thousand seven and in some cases they're finding relatives forever memorialize on google. There are questions however on how data associated with the cease people should be handled rebecca reporter at recode by. Vox joins us for more. It's news without the noise. Let's dive in the delta variant is currently the greatest threat in the us to our attempt to eliminate covid nineteen. Good news of vaccines are effective against the delta varies. Sarah zang staff writer at the atlantic. Thanks for joining us. Sarah thank you for having me to talk about the delta coronavirus variant right. Now it's getting a lot of attention. We're seeing a lot of good news with vaccinations and cases going down but this variant is still one of concern. Federal officials say that it could become the dominant strain in the united states. You know soon in a few months or or whatnot really. We don't know what will happen with it. There you mentioned in your article how the alpha strain was one of concern and it did become the dominant strain in the united states but it didn't lead to an overall huge surge so we're obviously hoping that doesn't happen with his delta version but sarah tell us a little bit more about it. Why is this so concerning so the delta. So concerning if i it's a lot more transmissible so delta is more transmissible alpha alpha internal is more transmissible than the original virus that came out of china last year. So we're looking at delta's would be about a little over twice as transmit schools original virus and what we're seeing the uk right now where delta's already become dominated that there's kind of a second cases now. This is actually largely driven among young people. And so actually. This is important because the you can't us pretty similar vaccination rape you just look at the law numbers right now. But what's different is the pattern of education in the uk. Don't people people know. Twenties be fully yet. And so you can see about with the various with closing his voice for people who are young and unvaccinated right. So i think you kind of really big message here is the delta is that it is more dangerous now. Japan vaccinated than it was perhaps a year ago. And if you're out of fox media as we are seeing that actually does still offer really good protection against delta. There's there's some there's something we can talk about. Especially if you only get one goes. But i think at the end of the day deltec kind of poses a danger to people unvaccinated. If you're vaccinated personally don't worry.

"Folks. I'm talking to pastor greg lock. The book is weapons of our unleashing. The power of the armor of god. It's kind of like a how to isn't it because a lot of people they they have this head knowledge to say but they don't know that they have to walk in it. It just breaks it down like a manual just chapter by chapter or but we're and i think it can be very helpful. It's already been super help of everybody in our church. That's about it. they love it. Well let me ask you if people wanna find your church online where do they go The biggest thing to do is go to pastor. Greg lock on facebook. The blue checkmark come up okay. They'll be able to us. They're also in youtube. If they google's that'd be a lot of unsavory things from cnn but they can find us. They're beautiful and cnn's attack new year over the target. Well i wanna talk to you about your growing up. Because we didn't we didn't get there. I mean what kind of a home did you grow up in. And what happened to lead you to become. The evangelist became and that kind of thing well. My father was in the tennessee state penitentiary for about the first nine. Ten years of my life. So i had to rebuild a relationship with him and didn't know him growing up and have done that he's been saved baptize. Love the lord and a struggle with cancer right now but my mom remarried a gentleman. My stepfather that still to this day. We have very little if any relationship. I'm forty five years old. I could tell you the very place. I was the very close i was wearing. I could tell you that. The spot where i was standing the one and only time in my whole life that he ever told me he me. I was just longing for that acceptance. And so i was really reaching out into a lot of juvenile delinquencies and so i was arrested six times on probation five times and finally get shipped to an orphanage and so i lived in a boys home for four years from sixteen to nineteen only about forty miles from where i live now and so i came to christ. There was a preacher. Dave been walked louisiana evangelist and he was preaching one night and the children's home had taken to a revival meeting on friday. I got mad on saturday. I went back. And i got saved and that was in nineteen ninety-two april seventeenth. Twenty nine years ago and within weeks god began to work on a heart to preach. I was so nervous. I didn't wanna. I don't wanna tell anybody and so i went to summer. Camp surrendered that year and in november of nineteen ninety-two. I started preaching the gospel and went off to seminary in north. Carolina traveled as an evangelist. And like i said fifteen years ago. Started the church when i was thirty. This is so exciting. Because he what god can do in a life. Yes i mean most people would say oh with that kind of a background. Your mind. you're going. You're in and out of jail. You're in and out of this. Forget it that guy is gonna have a tough life. Not according to god. I mean that is increasingly. Isn't amazing. And what i what i always find interesting too is that you know the very things that the devil will use in our personality once god gets a whole of that fire that You know it's almost kind of funny. Because if you're subversive your nature you're kind of like the devil can use it or god can use it and now god is using it. You're born with the same gifts of the devil. Can pervert it but once you get the holy spirit could use it right so the fire you have and the mischief. That's the god's misuse god's miss said and it's a beautiful thing and i think all the people may be listening right now who knows somebody who's really troubled and maybe we don't say enough on this program Jesus really is the answer People have a lot of trouble in their lives and they think that that's for them somehow. They're afraid of it. They don't want to be like those religious people they know maybe these have met the right religious people. Yeah well the problem. Is i think it is religious people and we're talking about a of viable real relationship with jesus christ who is not just a way to heaven. He's the one and only way to heaven and gives life and life more abundantly and piece that passes all understanding and all these verses that we know. It's beautiful when you finally surrender your life to christ old things are passed away off things become new and you know people need to know that and repeat that just as you did. I mean to understand that. it's not incremental. it's not like wow. I'm not feeling well and just makes me feel better. No no no no. You're dead you. you're a corpse. And jesus makes you alive and you need to train your mind to understand. That is. That is what the bible says. Yes now you can walk in half measures so you can walk in what it says but it says that and your your life is proof of that to go from where you were to wear. God brought you that. That's not normal. And the tagline for our churches were broken. People finding means your life and we'll reach and broken people literally by the hundreds because we're all broken right raw broken. Somebody said the only reason. The pope thinks he's perfect. 'cause he's not married. If you ever get married. His wife indifferent we all have seen. We all have problems. That's normal this pope. I still think you no it is. It is beautiful lena. So your church is mount juliet tennessee. Just outside of nashville. And so we like. Where's that near franklin seven miles straight east of the airport yet rate east to the airport too easy in a flying there for church on. No that's it's a it's a wonderful thing. Now when you say that you refuse to shut down when during the lockdown and that kind of stuff i mean i would think tennessee would have been one of the least ugly states to be in because you have a pretty good governor but you still had a lot of pushback probably the first couple of months. There wasn't a service that went by that. The sheriff people didn't show up but they love my videos. We backed up with. We're not going to pass a lot. we get it. It's nonsense but they keep calling so once once. I didn't go to jail once. They didn't shut us down then. The state started showing up. The county started showing up this. They try to violate us on all different types of ordinances. And you know things like that. They've tried to get us on a on a faulty sewer permit just to shut us down. Then the neighbors got together pulled money together. Bought the land next to us because we were buying it so that we couldn't expand and the lord ended up turning all of that around and the other neighbor rented us the land behind us and so now we have it for parking..
"locke" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Eric metaxas. Show with your host eric. Metaxas folks welcome to the program if the erc metaxas show. I'm playing the role of eric. Metaxas today and i have a guest. Who's playing himself. Pastor greg lock pastor greg lock. I don't know where to start with first of all. I love seeing you. I'm proud of the work you're doing in your church. I should mention that. You're founding lead. Pastor of global vision bible church and mount juliet tennessee. Right side outside nashville. You and i've connected on a number of occasions where here mainly to talk about your new book. But let's talk about where we are as a nation right now because the last time you were on this program. I think it was one day before the election. Yeah which we know is still being audited today. Because there's some crazy people conspiracy theorists and insurrectionists like eric metaxas. I mean the reeler. I'm just playing their role who believe that Lady liberty was mugged. yes and And something happened in america. That's never happened before i think. Eighty million plus americans feel the same way. And it's a ghastly moment when you do not know that you had a real election where the we. The people chose the leader of the country. That's a creepy thing to happen in history and the history of this country absolutely and i think more than eighty million at this point because people are tired of it. This has been a fall down the steps nightmare. I just read the other day. Somebody said this is almost like being strapped to a chair watching a toddler. Play with a loaded pistol. You never know what's going to happen and it's freaky. It really is and so. I think people are sick of it. I think at the election took place again today. There's so many democrats that would jump ship and actually vote for trump because they see debacle that we're in in this nation. I think you're right. I think i mean. I always say that. We have to really keep our heads because we're being gas lit by the left. They have the power they control the media to the extent that most americans think that half the people think that way and the fact of the matter is most americans. Don't think that way you've got these really radical leftists who are putting forward and narrative. And i i would say for the first time in my lifetime. Really sweeping the facts under the rug. A win the facts. Don't suit the narrative in in a way we've simply never seen anything like it. But i think most americans who don't have a a pulpit or don't have a program they see this stuff yeah they see it just like you said. And they're thinking this isn't something is way way off. So the reason. I say this greg is because i think i want to remind my fellow americans folks. It's not just you. We all see what is going on. And we're all praying and wh- waiting for a moment to act on what we could do in the united states of america to preserve our liberties but most americans. I agree with you. They see what is cooking. And i want to encourage those who are on the fence. They listen folks. You're not the only one most people know. Everything's going crazy. And i want to tell you you are not crazy. You're not revival is baked into the soil of this nation. You know that. The whole george whitfield stuff man. I'm telling you people don't recognize the fact. God is not done with this nation. We may fall one day but it will not be to a fraudulent administration. Well you know something When you say that we were not taught that growing up in schools. At least i wasn't most americans were taught that without well without george whitfield and the revivals that went up and down the thirteen colonies. We would not have been prepared to take on self-government and that's i explain them in my book if he can keep it but it goes beyond that where you realize that every single one of the founders. I mean every one understood this idea that without and faith This doesn't work now. You can't force virtue or faith because if you want freedom you cannot force freedom. you can't compel freedom. That's an oxymoron. But they understood that if we the people don't keep the republic if we the people don't understand that faith and virtue is what holds self-government together and protects the week from the strong. Then it all falls apart in our lifetimes we have seen things drift away so that people they don't know that they think you can have goodness without god right and even fast forward to the american revolution. The black robe regiment these guys. We've talked about this before. They say the republic preaching they're black clerical robes. Pull them off. After the end of their sunday morning message lead their minute a battle and literally saved this nation. So faith is it. It is it and i believe god's going to revive this nation. Now talk more about that. Because i believe same thing. I've been listening to number of voices on the internet. Some people who are friends talking about this that they believe god has said there will be revival that what is coming out of this revival and i believe is coming through the back door persecution. Our church calls the blue flame. Revival the hottest revive we've ever seen. I'm not praying for a third grade awakening. I'm praying for the greatest awakening. this nation has ever seen. Because you know as well as i do. Once america falls with the last bashing of capitalism and freedom on the planet i was preaching some time ago in kentucky and a lady that was saved literally by the lord and by the government of things happening over there in that regime. She said look in in america. We want you to see revival but the chinese christians are not praying for america to see revival. We're praying for. Americans see persecution because that will bring the revival that was a big statement from and she was weeping when she said this isn't that isn't that amazing. Listen when this thing happened with with the election and then everything has happened. Subsequently this nightmare you said you know falling down the steps nightmare. I think it is god's mercy it is a wake up call not just to the church but to your average american to say. Wow look how bad it can get. We didn't think it'd be at this bad. We think it just going to go back to you know the way it was under george w rauscher something. It is such a waking nightmare that it is It is the one thing that i think. God uses in history. We see it in scripture to wake his people up absolutely. I think it's been interesting. That the last fifteen or sixteen months have really been a dress rehearsal because now now they know who they can control and who's going to be a problem moving forward and gas like we're just going to be a problem moving forward and i'm very bold about that. I have not yet begun problems going forward. Yes i'm telling you seriously. I think that this is one of those funny things. Where if you don't know what it is to suffer into to go in the wrong direction you're sleepwalking and most americans. We've been so blessed we've been sleepwalking. We need to understand that it can get satanically bad. Yes we can. A what happened to china would happen germany in the thirties but these are just human beings just like us and they slid in those directions and we are not immune to that god has blessed us to be a blessing. But i think we are going through season now. We're we're we're seeing what could happen. If god's people and the good people in america the patriots do not stand up and fight absolutely you know. Prophecy for us was so far into the future..

That's him behind President Obama in the White House as they watched the Navy seals descend on bin Laden is compound in real time. There was a lot of risk. We felt comfortable that we could get in and out of Pakistan without being detected in a timely way. We felt we could get into the compound. And for Mullen, it was personal. He was in the Pentagon a decade earlier, when one of the hijacked planes slammed into it. The plane flew in under Basically under my office, My two assistants looked out the window and saw 7 57 fly in under their feet.

National Native American Veterans Memorial opens in Washington, DC
"Opens today on the National Mall in Washington, D C. It's the Native American Veterans Memorial. Native Americans have served in the armed forces in high numbers for more than a century. This is the first memorial to honor that service. Here's NPR's Quil Lawrence. The memorial is simple. A steel circle elevated over carved stone drum. It sits in the shade of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian Kevin Go over, is a member of the Pawnee Nation and the museum's director. It's an article of faith in Indian country that Native American serve at a greater rate than basically any other group. So we wish for this to be a sacred place, not just for Native America. But for all Americans. The opening ceremony went virtual because of the pandemic. But here are a few of the people go over hopes will one day attend and sanctify the site. My name is Marcel Grande La Bull. And I'm from the two kettle ban of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. You know? I'm 101 years old. No in 1940 for Marcela Lobo was a surgical nurse at an Army hospital during the battle of the Bulge Well, In December. I believe it was 1/16 of December. The Germans overtook the American soldiers. They wondered about putting in a hospital so close to the front lines, but they did. So we were there in leisure. And we had both funds night and day. At the time of the breaks through the growth of the bulge. Lobo says her own community always honored her military service. Now the memorial in Washington means the whole country conduce this same to be AH, thought like it was a great honor. My ancestors were warriors. I'm related to rein in the face who fought in the battle of the little big horn or greasy grass that they called it. My father was a Spanish American war veteran. My brother oldest brother was a veteran all down the line. But some native vets aren't as aware of their own family service. Yeah, my name is Colonel Wayne Don don has served 27 years in the army, including Bosnia and Afghanistan. You know, for a lot of years, I thought I was a first generation military person came to find out is both of my grandfather and uncles. And served in a territorial guard during World War two. That was an emotional discovery for dawn and a complicated one not just native Americans, but on the other minority groups, ultimately that they chose to serve to represent their people. And also to serve a country that this, you know, sometimes. Didn't have AH would've proved to be their best interests in mind, but they're still still did it, He says. Now that the country is wrestling with questions about racial justice, he hopes the memorial can play a part. Army vet Allan Ho feels the same. He's native Hawaiian saw combat in Vietnam. Then his two sons served after 9 11, his oldest son. Nine. No. Ho was killed in Iraq and he wass Credible young man. He was an officer, platoon leader, and he was killed in 25 in Mosul, Iraq. His younger brother's the staff sergeant. His name is Locke or And the meaning for a knock or is a warrior who is brave and courageous. Those are the stories of service and sacrifice. He wants Americans to hear it. The new memorial for native visitors, Ho wants it to be a validation and an inspiration. And then perhaps, who knows? Maybe some young Native son who experiences that memorial for this first time, we'll be in 50 years from now he'll be that the president of the United States who knows Quil Lawrence NPR news
How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially
"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees. And can result in Ah lower settlement before everybody gets dug in, and the price of the case goes up insurance policies and local budgets usually pay for judgments and claims. Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems. Activists argue tying police misconduct cost to police budgets could help prevent police wrongdoing as well as making police officers especially repeat offenders financially accountable. Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct.

"locke" Discussed on Can I Pet Your Dog?
"That was like her biggest trick was like when she came home from puppy school because she learned very young to ring the bell to go to ring the bell on the back door to go out cute, so that was like her one thing, but. But when she came home from school, they were like watch this and they would like ring the doorbell and she'd go get a thing and it. She'd sit by the. She was so good at it when she first came home from training, and then she got older. I feel like she still was wild and jumping, but she'd always put. That toyed her mouth like that part. She never forgot that. My dog also has a bell to ring when he wants to go outside, but he also abuses it where sometimes he's just like like to be outside. Does Riley do that as well? Yes, she does for sure for sure. she also would y. parents have a pool and she would like ring the bell to go out, and then just dart that front step of the pool and get like wet up to her elbows. and. It drove my mom so crazy and we had I remember. There was a diet. Coke can like an old rusted Diet Coke Canon written on a post. It notes that Riley no pool. A couple of pennies in it. She went for that pool. You'd be like, don't do it. And shake can. Because! She would just get like to just get her legs wet and then she y'all stinky. We talk of Soleil. You can't. You can't get him out of it. No matter what's to be done. I don't and I. Don't know how he finds the puddles that he finds but. Just hat and I would sure we'll do. We think that Riley's was based in needing to cool off a little bit or she just to Sorta I. Mean I think it was just like funny swimming when she was little because again that also that all calm down, she lived to be thirteen. So I feel like the wildest Riley stories were like long wrong of course, and then at some point she just became like. A chill other member of the family with those first couple of years she was just like. Why of course, and she loved swimming for a long time, and then she likes stopped loving swimming, and if people splashed in the pool, she would freak out she like you could play in the pool, but if you started splashing no. Was it and she would just run around the pool embark. SPLASHING, crazy. Just a lifeguard in a previous life I applauded. I approve A. Lifeguard yeah I mean when what we all hope for ourselves now I come to you as a podcast who has an incredibly low threshold for sadness and pain so? You were perfect I just. I want to inform our listeners a new dog in your family. I'm going to have to of brush over how we got to the new dog, so Riley across the Rainbow Bridge to go be a life garden. Yes, yes, last May, after thirteen long wonderful years, and she had the best life, and she was the media. The neediest dog I ever met. She did the paw thing like. If you're not touching me then you get you get the flip, PAS. You, touch her. So it was the best. And then my family, who had never had dogs like. was like Oh no, I guess. I'm a dog person now like course of thought, they weren't dog people, but thirteen years of having a dog like your dog. People now brave. So in like a magical coincidence in December of last year around Riley's birthday, my mom got a text from like a friend of a friend at Church that somebody had just had a new litter of Golden doodle. was like it's a sign like it's assigned from Riley and we have to get one. Like so she reserved herself a baby girl, and then at Christmas time. She was telling everybody like I'm getting. She would like tell people like we're getting a new baby and everybody was like freaking out so happy for her it was. So sweet. So, Brandy rose came home. In February? My mom has moved her job entirely to be work from home fully so that she can be home with the baby who is now just called baby girl. Brandy, but they just call her baby girl. Start with Brandy Rose Dino. How that I don't know I know? My mom wanted to end in a y. again like the lake lineage going sure sure of the lake e dogs, or whatever so we landed on Brandy I wanted Birdie really bad. That was my vote has name yeah, yeah, so she operandi, but then I guess she just started being called baby girl because like there's no kids in the house. There's a new babies. But I have yet. I have not met baby brandy as a are. The the cruelest of all the concept. Actually one of the coolest things I've ever heard. Yeah, no, she can't win A.

He Yeah so she recently went away for her two weeks at puppy cam at Lake. The swankiest puppy camp ever seen it's like in Austin, and it literally has a guitar shaped pool because. But she had to learn shit. Her problem is that she is too submissive and she just flops around other dogs, so they're trying to get her to like. Stand up and play and stop like flopping around. But like I, don't know from the video that I got i. think that she just learned to be cheese motivated I. Don't know if she like actually learned any or she just learnt. Excuse? I also there's genuinely love the scenario of in that initial intake interview. Like what are your goals? Your like stand up would be. Up. Sweet, Girl. I was. A of like also a lot of people, my parents neighborhood also now have like puppies like everyone was getting puppies around the same time.

Vincent Brown discusses his new book, ‘Tacky’s Revolt’
"Vincent Brown welcome to meet the rices. Slavery is war. Tell me what that means. Well. In the book. I tend to think of slavery itself as a state of war, and in that I'm following the enslaved themselves who often discuss slavery as a state of warfare amongst themselves, most famously allowed Equiano who we know as one of the most famous formerly enslaved abolitionists of the late eighteenth century British Atlantic. said in his autobiography that when you make people slaves. Them to live with you in a state of war. Now in that he was echoing the philosopher John Locke. Who said that what is slavery? But the state of war continued between what he thought was a lawful conqueror and the concord now John Locke was trying to legitimate slavery. He was an investor in the Royal African company, and he actually helped to write the constitution for the colony of south. Carolina, which became a slave state. State, but equiano was doing something a little bit different than John Locke. He was actually commenting upon the conditions of slavery, the violence that was required to maintain people in slavery and the kind of response that was bound to come by those people who had been subjected so violently so for him, slavery was a state of war, and there were other enslaved people who echoed. Seeing slavery that way helped me frame the slave revolt in Jamaica. In seventeen, sixty, seven, sixty, one, which was the largest in the eighteenth century, British Empire as a war itself right as one of a series of wars, all around the Atlantic world that then ed up in this conflict in seventeen sixty Jamaica I'd like to look at your own life, and where that intersects with war, because you grew up in San Diego, and in fact, it was very early on that. You became aware of conflicts. I did well. I'm an American citizen. I grew up in the United States. I was born in the late sixties at the height of the Vietnam War and I I'm sorry to say that I can't name a five year period when the US military hasn't been abroad somewhere engaged in conflict with somebody over the course of my entire life, which seems to me like a half century of war having. Having grown up in San Diego I grew up in one of the largest terry garrison towns really in the history of the world the US Navy is as a major base in San Diego. The US Marines just north of San Diego have a major base and so coming through high school. A lot of my friends would join the military because it was the big industry in town, right. And of course, you know, my family had been had served in the army. My father served in the army. My Uncle A. Brother had done three combat tours I. Believe one in Korea and two in Vietnam, so the history of the military, the engagement overseas abroad in military campaigns was very much a part of my thinking growing up, and so when I thought about the history of slavery. It just jumped out at me that this history was itself a history that was embroiled embedded in a world of warfare, especially in the eighteenth century win. You have got Great Britain struggling in a century long campaign against its its greatest global enemy France, and all of those European wars then topped onto. The wars of enslavement that sent people out across the Atlantic into the European colonies in America, and what you have is a world of wars within wars, which looked very familiar to me like the campaigns at the US was fighting within the larger ambit- of the Cold War so by the time I grew to adulthood in the late eighty S. I was seeing these these late cold war campaigns in these post colonial states as as part of the larger Cold War, and then you see these proxy wars between the US and the Soviet Union fought out in places like Afghanistan right, and then of course by two thousand one, you see those kind of proxy campaigns between the US and Soviet Union growing into something else what we now call the terror wars, the war on. On Terror in Afghanistan and elsewhere I didn't see those things as continuous. I didn't see the terror war something uniquely different from most proxy wars of the late. Cold War period and my thinking historically has been to ask the question. How is it that one connects these longer histories of warfare together? And I do think that I was inspired to think that partly by having grown up in San Diego in a military town. And what about your, your family's personal history with war and with slavery? Well an african-american! My parents grew up in Virginia, and so they are descended from people who are enslaved probably as far back as the eighteenth century the Chesapeake Bay area. What's now? Virginia and Maryland was one of the largest importers of slaves in North America now I say north. America because the British empire imported the vast majority of its enslaved peoples into the Caribbean but for North America the territories that became the United States, the Chesapeake and South Carolina with a major importers of enslaved African peoples, and my family is descended from. Those people probably brought to North America in the eighteenth century. History was big in your life obviously, but also the arch. Yeah well. When I was in high school I I became very involved in theater and went to college thinking that I was actually going to do a theater degree. But at some point I thought well, you know I could probably do theater without a theater degree, but maybe I should have a backup plan and my second love in college was history, and that ended up being my career.
Former Amb. Gary Locke discusses China US relations
"U. U. S. S. China China relations relations continue continue to to deteriorate deteriorate with with president president trump trump threatening threatening more more sanctions sanctions and and China China apparently apparently cutting cutting back back further further on on agricultural agricultural imports imports Gary Gary Locke Locke served served as as US US ambassador ambassador to to Beijing Beijing under under president president Obama Obama before before that that he he was was governor governor of of Washington Washington investor investor like like is is now now senior senior adviser adviser to to David David Wright Wright and and Jermaine Jermaine I I asked asked the the pastor pastor if if relations relations between between the the United United States States and and China China are are as as bad bad as as they they looked looked relations relations are are very very very very bad bad right right now now it's it's getting getting worse worse the the latest latest salvo salvo of of walls walls the the only only taking taking away away the the the the special special status status that that Hong Hong Kong Kong has has previously previously that that could could impose impose tariffs tariffs on on all all products products that that are are coming coming out out of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and they they make make it it harder harder for for residents residents of of Hong Hong Kong Kong you you can can visit visit the the United United States States unfortunately unfortunately trying trying to to get get at at the the the the policies policies of of all all China China in in terms terms of of not not respecting respecting the the one one country country two two systems systems the the autonomy autonomy that that the the Hong Hong Kong Kong has has previously previously enjoyed enjoyed these these types types of of actions actions back back hurt hurt the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong without without really really affecting affecting the the government government of of China China really really punishing punishing the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong who who have have really really been been protesting protesting for for greater greater democracy democracy and and freedom freedom so so this this is is really really going going to to hurt hurt the the people people of of the the very very pro pro democratic democratic people people of of of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and perhaps perhaps while while sending sending a a message message to to mainland mainland China China may may not not really really hurt hurt China China itself itself well well it it has has to to take take us us back back a a bit bit in in history history back back in in ninety ninety seven seven there there was was an an agreement agreement entered entered into into by by China China as as part part of of Hong Hong Kong Kong coming coming back back to to head head away away from from Great Great Britain Britain is is it it just just clear clear they they violated violated that that agreement agreement and and perhaps perhaps more more important important are are there there any any remedies remedies for for violation violation agreement agreement well well played played ballgame ballgame the the report report you you bite bite out out properly properly to to Hong Hong Kong Kong at at least least to to the the with with twenty twenty more more years years or or so so and and China China of of course course is is upset upset that that Hong Hong Kong Kong has has not not passed passed some some security security laws laws it it is is it's it's supposed supposed to to have have a a baby baby but but years years ago ago and and so so tensions tensions have have been been very very poor poor quality quality and and there's there's a lot a lot of of protesting protesting just just last last year year over over the the coals coals old old toolbox toolbox traditions traditions of of people people charged charged with with crimes crimes one one of of the the that that being being sent sent back back to to other other countries countries including including the the mainland mainland China China courses courses with with the the confidence confidence in in the the rule rule of of law law it it tried tried that that people people could could be be prosecuted prosecuted on on trumped trumped up up charges charges in in the the if if they they are are living living in in Hong Hong Kong Kong maybe maybe because because they're they're all all wasting wasting dissent dissent about about the the policies policies you you disagree disagree openly openly occurred occurred with with the the policies policies of of China China criticizing criticizing the the Chinese Chinese government government that that they they could could then then be be extradited extradited to to the the mainland mainland to to face face prosecution prosecution so so these these are are really really tough tough issues issues and and again again on on China China is is I I think think the the holding holding itself itself in in the the world world if if it it takes takes away away the the autonomy autonomy of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and certainly certainly will will not not help help in in trying trying to to reunify reunify Taiwan Taiwan because because the the people people of of Taiwan Taiwan will will say say how how can can we we ever ever trust trust the the maple maple at at Thomas Thomas is is that that they they might might have have to to maintain maintain the the democracy democracy that that is is very very very very strong strong on on Taiwan Taiwan we we have have the the largest largest economy economy in in the the world world the the United United States States the the second second largest largest China China we're we're gonna gonna have have to to figure figure out out a a way way to to deal deal with with one one another another one one way way or or the the other other can can you you see see a a path path forward forward to to a a constructive constructive engagement engagement with with China China going going forward forward because because I I have have to to say say China China has has not not had had a great a great track track record record of of complying complying with with its its grievance grievance over over the the years years going going all all the the way way back back to to the the WTO WTO I I think think that that the the world world stage stage and and and and and and all all the the other other countries countries which which share share but but China China does does business business has has operations operations as as investments investments and and and and is is a a trading trading partner partner with with all all of of those those countries countries didn't didn't work work with with the the United United States States in in confronting confronting China China United United States States doing doing it it alone alone actually actually hurts hurts Americans Americans actually actually benefits benefits many many of of our our allies allies well well they they have have the the same same concerns concerns this this terrible terrible trade trade war war between between China China United United States States barely barely makes makes American American products products more more expensive expensive in in China China and and so so the the Chinese Chinese the the buyers buyers will will block block you you know know purchased purchased something something from from Germany Germany Australia Australia or or Canada Canada because because it's it's so so much much cheaper cheaper well well those those countries countries have have some some of of the the circle circle I I have have many many of of the the same same concerns concerns about about the the trading trading policy policy the the economic economic policies policies the the lack lack of of intellectual intellectual protection protection the the lack lack of of rule rule of of law law that that we we have have over over China's China's policies policies but but we we should should be be working working in in concert concert with with all all these these other other countries countries the the day day after after China's China's policies policies to to confront confront China China instead instead of of doing doing it it alone alone because because and and these these other other countries countries just just sit sit back back and and their their their their companies companies will will get get all all the the business business because because they're they're they're they're the the products products of of their their companies companies are are so so much much cheaper cheaper whether whether

Breaking Down Bracketology
"I do WanNa flip the page to Rica's point some teams. That have worked very hard to get to this point. We've got eleven teams. Charlie that have punched their ticket so far to go dancing any surprises for you in the ache you I think we have one out. West correct so In the last couple of days of the West Coast Conference Tournament Portland is your winner. And they will now go to the tournament. they upset didn't zag in the semifinals and they will catch a little bit of. Portland's game yesterday in the championship when I flew into Vegas and they're upset of of Gonzaga disrupted. That's the surprise. It's SORTA disrupted the bubble a little bit because when you when you take it to my Portland who was not going to make it as an at large but Gonzaga certainly is well now the WC goes from having one team in the field to two teams in the field. Well he can only still sixty four teams so someone has to come out of the field to accommodate Portland's entrance and that affects the at large teams on the bubble and in the case of my bracket that not Boston College. Back out of the field. Who just a day earlier had slid into the field because there was another loss by someone else so everything with this in the championship weeks at circumstances everything affects something else because it's a numbers game. It's a sixty fourteen field no matter how you slice it so going forward and these next few days. We've got some other tournaments that could affect that in the same way and I mentioned this going back a week or so ago that their watch out for the bids steelers because there are certain mid majors that we know we're going to be in the field. They've earned the right to be in. The field is at large teams if they don't also go in there if they don't go in AH automatic qualifiers by winning their tournament. Well then that's an extra team that we didn't account for and brackets and that's an extra team now that the committee has to put into the field. That's one less team that can make it from some of these bubble team. So yeah the the big upset so far has been in the West Coast Conference in Gonzaga. Not Winning it and we've got some more to look forward to. The MAC happens to be one of those tournaments where there's not going to be. Any fans will central Michigan won the league pretty decisively. This year is a top twenty. Rpi team and most assuredly will make the field but now that tournament played before no one could be one of those that affects how the bubble teams go to central Michigan. Does it also come on? Come out on top in the tournament So that's that's certainly one for fans to watch as we go forward and you're GONNA have to watch it on TV because you're not gonna be able to buy it you're watching on TV though you will hear my voice. I'm on the call on Saturday for the championship. And the more reason to tune in now on the game and you can't get into the arena so the ratings should be sky high. Now it's via going okay. So I want to over to the big twelve. Charlie would where I know actually had a chance to call some big twelve games this year and I know. Tcu In particular was a team that was really making a push. I believe there in the field as it stands right now but I was state actually Jones. Who's a certified buck gator? They upset Baylor over the weekend which was a huge deal. I did a double take when I got the alert. Baylor is bailer their legitimacy. It probably doesn't change anything for them. But what does it do for Iowa State? Well I always stayed. I had as a tendency leading into that game and and it pushed him to a nine. And what that does is it's security. It's cushion because of the ten seed. Maybe the committee views them a little differently. Not Quite not quite at that level so that he's talking about eleven seed. Well that's a vulnerable team to some of the upset potential. We just talked about so what that win for Iowa State. I think is put to rest any question that they'd be in the field although I think there was a big one anyway but it but it certainly nails it down and they no longer would have. I don't think any anxious moments watching the selection show on Monday Now it's just GonNa be a matter of where do they go? And whom do they play? But I think that's what did for for I would say for sure and it would what it did do for. Baylor though while not it's not gonNA knock him out of a one seed it. Does maybe raise some questions. I personally didn't think that there was anything to worry about with. Frankly there weren't a lot of flaws there but the big twelve not not one of the better leagues in the country this year of the power. Five Leagues I think it's probably fifth and they haven't been severely tested in a while and I always say certainly did that and the it might raise some question marks about Baylor going forward. I think they can answer any of those questions in the big twelve tournament because I was sneaking suspicion. They're going to come out with a little extra in that game and it could be ugly for the other. Big Twelve teams In the big twelve tournament but that said it does it. It shows little vulnerability that I didn't think Baylor had and that makes it a little more intrigued when we get to the tournament. Time itself I agree with you one hundred percent. I know look at the box. Were trying to figure out what the deal was. And nothing really was like crazy glaring. But I do think you're right. I know a ton of folks are going to be studying that tape to see what I was able to do right well that was able to watch some of that game and when I did was really slow the Temple. They hope to threes in the second half. They made more threes than they made. Twos in the game and the believer and it was and it was so slow paced and Baylor never found a rhythm that they they say clog everything inside the Lauren Cox had almost no room to move it. Kinda dared the Baylor shooters to shoot and they just had one of those games where they weren't making shots so maybe at least down a blueprint for some other teams as to how to at least approach Valer Ago You mentioned as an example Yukon being a number two seed and I know over the past few years you have seen to have had all these regional conferences in such a favorable area. I think at the Albany region that they mostly have been seated but this year they would be projected number two in the Portland region and I think as much as we talk about Yukon not being the same Yukon is as pass. There's still a very good basketball team. Won thirty nine. Oh in their conference over these last few years in the American and I think that having them with the possibility of travel really makes this team look a little different because they aren't the same team as years pass. Tell us a little bit about how that could affect their performance. Assuming they make the sweet sixteen you're right and Seven out of the last eight years. They've either played in Albany. Bridge for for Kingston Rhode Island. So they they have not had to get on an airplane until the final four in seven out of those those eight years. But let's let's be honest earned it ju- every one of those years with the possible exception of last year because they were the best team in the country in those years too so and when when cities bid for these regionals it just so happened that that all those years those particular low cows bid and got regionals to be able to host. And you can't happen to be close so this year. Those regionals are don't exist. There is no Albany. There is no Kingston. There is no bridgeport and no matter what was going to have to get on an airplane. And you're right. I think it will look a little bit. Different seeing a yukon in a faraway place. I don't think it's going to impact on the whole Locke. Though to be honest I think the people that are bothered by the possibility of uconn going West are the players and the coaching staff. Everything I've heard from them is like. Hey we'll bring it on. We'll play wherever we'll play whomever we'RE NOT THAT CONCERNED ABOUT. Gino's been been pretty adamantly over the years but this year when the subject's soon kinda shrug your shoulders. Look I you know. I don't have any control over it and we'll go play and it will do what we do and I think he said the other night after the the American championship game. We'll do what we do. I hope I think That's sort of the philosophy that they're gonNA take me. Maybe their fans aren't happy and maybe people who who look at the tournament and see certain things as they view them. Unfair that a team that is fifth overall. My take would be the one that has to travel. Based on the fact that other teams can can drive to the region. So we'll get into the reason why you would be going to Portland is very simply that The NC Double A. Would prefer as much as possible that teams that can drive rather than fly two games that they're gonNA play It's written right in the procedures principles of putting the bracket together that mode of transportation distance from campus. Things that they consider will this year Louisville can drive the Fort Wayne Regional? Nc State can drive to the Greenville regional. So if you assume that those are those are two of the other number number two seeds. Then they're going to be plotted in those regions and then the other one being Stanford and Stanford mashed up with Oregon would would also violate one of the principles of putting the bracket together and they They try to keep teams seeded on the top four lines from the same conference separate. So they're so they're in different regions. They wouldn't even meet until the final four now. In this case the fact twelve might have five teams in top sixteen making that impossible but in years past when that's happened the committee's not put one a one and a two. They've put fit when a four again. So it's highly highly unlikely that Oregon at Stanford Movie Place Together which only leaves one region left for Yukon to go to which is Portland matched up with. Oregon is the one in the two. So that's the why behind it and I think we talked about the the what or in the case of I think the Yukon players coaches the. So what I don't know that they that it matters to them very much but it does create an interesting conversation around how the tournament is bracketed. And some of these rules. That maybe fans aren't quite as aware of in the the head-scratching that I get from from fans and social media. Say Well if you cons five. They should be matched up with the number four overall team based on the curve. And that's Maryland so they should be going to Fort Wayne. Well we don't ever. The S curve is used to plot the teams in the tournament. But it's not used strictly to place them in these numerical matchups one in eight go together. Two and seven go together. It's never worked that way. It doesn't work that way in the men's tournament. The committee will try to do that as much as possible. That's the goal. But if you've got these graphical instances at hand as well then there there's other ways to balance the bracket and. That's I think what's going to happen. This year with
From The Tea Party to The Resistance
"Imagine it's early. Two thousand nine. Barack Obama has just been sworn in as the first african-american president in the history of the United States after momentous election soon resistance arises. The Tea Party comes into being all over the United States. In many places people come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop now fast forward another eight years too early. Two Thousand Seventeen President. Donald trump has just been elected and the same thing happens people all over the come out to say they don't like what's going on and they wanted to stop so the tea party and the Democratic Resistance. Are they similar? Are they different? What can we learn by looking at the two of them together? Hi I'm Avi Green. And this is the scholar strategy networks no jargon each week we discussed an American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon in this episode. I spoke to Lagos. She is a doctoral student. Sociology at Harvard University and it contributed to the book a- bending American politics which just came out edited by Caroline Turbo and are very unbeatable. And here's our conversation. Thanks so much for coming under jargon. Thanks for having me so we could. You've set the stage by telling us some something about the tea party. No what what did professors got bull. I think. One of your other colleagues Vanessa Williamson. Learn about the tea party. You can give us that background that that would be great. Yes so professor. Scotch and Vanessa Williamson have published a lot of really interesting work on the birth of the Tea Party. And what they've done since they started in two thousand nine so after. President Obama was elected there. Was this backlash and it started off really small and small in the way that it was something people were talking about. They weren't excited for the politics of of Obama they weren't excited particularly for the economic policies. That would come with a stimulus which was referred to as Porculus and so a commentator on Fox News Rick Santelli told supporters and people who are listening. Let's go out let's protest. Let's throw t in the river. Which really translated to? Let's make our own uprising against what we think are really bad. Economic Policies so the tea party was a movement of people acting at the local level and they did this by making friends at protests between Tax Day April two thousand nine to the march on Washington in September of that. Same year organizing their friends reaching out to people on meet up on this before facebook. I really popular we kind of have to remember. This was actually ten years ago now. And the idea truly became something of we are trying to make a movement out of educating people who are interested and saying no to Obama's politics and as educational movement was wasn't is really spectacularly unique because it involved local groups engaging with one another so sharing information where he together to host lectures workshops but also working with national level funders and think tanks and candidates support groups that would be their packs that would be the candidates themselves and then also the RNC and what happened in two thousand nine is Americans for prosperity Civitas. The John Locke Foundation the coke brothers. They all got together whether in public or privately and we're starting to fund these groups not just through grants to do things or signs but their education. We want to support certain economic and voter policies in particular so came down to this idea that we're going to give education opportunities to these local groups e solid partnerships between the John Locke Foundation between Civitas. And this idea of saying let's go on educate people on the constitution. Let's talk about how local politics works and so these groups working in tandem with national organizations and there was a relationship there that started to push the party to the right large part the Republican party largely. Because there's no compromise so the tea party wasn't about finding a middle ground. It was like they took their suitcase. And they marched to the right and they haven't really stopped since and think tanks and these foundations went with them and at this time the Republican Party. Rnc were particularly hollowed out in a sense that there wasn't a lot of national and local support and there wasn't a lot of work between those two factions of the organization. So they kind of just had to go with the. Rnc could say we're a powerful group of tons of people who love the RNC who loved the Republican Party. Being what it currently is and we're GONNA fight for our status quo or are moderation or center right or there's a few people and they were basically quickly stampeded. Moseley by this this kind of insurgency on the right yes so jumps forward eight years to the flip side and before you tell us what. You found out about the resistance. Because I think you've found out a ton of things I love for you to tell me about what it was like to do this research like was this about like looking at big data sets and sitting in front of computers. Or did you get in a bus or a train or a car go someplace and if so where did you go? Yes so the thing that interests me most about the jumping forward as we have to remember that the tea party still exists so jumping forward as almost like getting on a train and we're all going in a direction of the future which is currently now the tea party produced all of this knowledge about how to engage congressmen and senators congresswoman. Anyone WHO's working in local national politics and so when it came time for the two thousand Sixteen Election Liberal Democrats were all just of course Hillary Clinton's going to win and didn't everyone was unbelievably stunned. Stunned sad I haven't seen the word devastated so often on social media and in the news before this moment and so you have. This question of people are wondering who voted for him. What's the direction America's going in? I'm devastated what's happening. And this is happening in local communities in rural areas and cities on college campuses and churches. There's this response that you see your friends on social media and this big idea of what we're looking for an we're trying to understand right like what happens after election of Donald Trump is. We automatically know. There's going to be something similar to the tea party solely because of this massive immediate response on facebook so there was a group. I don't know if anyone was a number. It was a secret group. It was called pantsuit nation. But I I'm just going to tell tell our listeners. I have to admit it I was not a member I was. It was an exciting experience. I think at the height of the group which was the day of the election. There's almost three million members and grew the idea that was you would share your excitement for a female president would wear your pants suit or your child aggressive dress up in a pantsuit to go to vote and once. Hillary Clinton lost this group went from being cheerleaders to being a support group and all of a sudden a member in this group. Teresa shook was like why don't we have a march on Washington and I'm going to jump ahead a little a pants. State Nation Actually took on nonprofit status. It was no longer able to be politically engaged in the same way so groups. This is where this whole local grassroots movement kind of picked up force. I WANNA fly there too. I think that's like a whole interesting story in itself you know. And we've had other researchers talked about the ways in which the land therapy and tax laws distort what people are able to do because activists say like. Oh I want to do war of this work and then the first thing people say. Let's get some grants so we can do it and it was like well. Let's be a five hundred eighty three and then you can't do politics the way that you were doing it before and it's a it's a very strange set of things that are happening. We talk about like it's a natural thing but it's all a manifestation of ways in which our our tax laws in our laws about regulating politics advocacy and. Who GETS TO DO IT? You know play out in real life. It's almost as if we walked into a vacuum where people want it to be able to tell stories of that experience of the support of a woman running for president her loss. And that's what happened with dancing nation but at the same time you had millions of people primarily women who were saying. I want to be more involved. I WANNA do more. How do I do it? And so there's this large push for March on Washington which became women's March which happened and two thousand seventeen and at the same time. So we're still kind of in December. You see something pop up online. It's the indivisible guide so who wrote it in and what is it and how did that play a role so visible guide was written by as relevent Leah Greenburg? Who are at this point in time have experienced as congressional staffers. Dc insiders so they understand what the tea party has been doing for the last eight years. So they post a Google doc and remember tea parties. You've been using meet up basic aged him out where eight years in the future. We've got new technology. The Google doc explodes wasn't side of it is a list of ways to beat. Donald Trump in the future based on what the tea party did. Just kind of completely agitate Obama's efforts for eight years
A History of Seduction
"Clement. Knox joins US now from London. His new book is called Seduction History from the enlightenment to the present Clement. Thanks for being here so your day job. I want to start there. Because you have a book oriented day job you work as a nonfiction buyer at waterstones which is of course a major British bookstore teen. What's your job like there? What do you do so their tour of managing nonfiction and about two hundred and eighty stores? My job really is just to get the the right books and the right stores. I'm responsible for history philosophy politics Papa. Johns I mean about nine categories overall and so. We do a lot with the publishers booksellers as well. Did you get to pick which categories you're responsible for? No when I got the job I was just assigned and then they'll kind of a reshuffle if he has got a few more categories as well they kind of work perfectly because it more or less alliance with what I'm interested in reading and what I'm interested in writing see you're deciding which books go into waterstone's the chain into which stores and how many copies are ordered exactly that to you. So that's a very powerful position. It's very structured is a very fair how we how we do it and is a constant communication publishers stores and sometimes even the authors as well we very even-handed brushing away and there's no kind of mysterious. What would probably shooter who understand. What's your typical day? Like a lot of meetings a lot of looking at science because a lot of reading of publicity plans and back and forth people. He wants us to buy their. Berko by book or by even more so. Are you living months ahead of time looking at? What are the books coming out this fall? Oh Oh yeah. We're tasked with trying to look as far as possible. So wig about to start. Looking at the timber Tiber November on average would normally thinking three months ahead of the east. And what happened with your book? The decider like we're going to order a hundred thousand copies of seduction. Yeah I I wish it was it by my boss has taken over that completely and utterly redeem. Oh look thing I try and pretend you know having to stay in a total of ignorance about one's own buck. I agree. Yeah but let's talk. Let's talk about your book. This may seem like perhaps a silly question but let's define seduction exactly. How is it action separate from courtship? How is it different from something? Maybe more creepy and less mutual like sexual harassment. Like what is seduction? I think the crucial aspect is selection. It's psychological and fumes kind of like confrontation between the minds and the passion of two different individuals in English law. That was a whole body of law do seduction discussing in some detail and wish would later it was. It came to America with with the mayflower that was developed in an extraordinary way and in those laws there was a distinction made between between rape which is obviously a What is coercive violent and seduction was seen as distinct from rape and she assumed that consent had been obtained that consent was in some way vitiated or somehow degraded by the techniques by which it was one so seduction carry that burden. That somehow someone's being over and perhaps the method used to win them over the Underhand but that's only one definition. There's a whole other definition which would say you know. It's just about courtship and game playing and it's fun and this is dawn which is dawn sexual freedom. Did you focus on that fun? Dance in this book or did you cover the full gamut the way the book is kind of structured is the. There's like a dialectic. Going on and one half of the history of seduction is about people worrying about sexual freedom worrying about things going wrong about the collision desire empower the capacity for abuse and wrongdoing. That is one of the history and the other half is about sexual freedom being this exciting enjoyable thing which which is buried lighthearted and people Is The insurance of the church. Will the government so the book kind of structured around the kind of dichotomy and not conflict between our two years of war sexual freedom is and what that means deduction your subtitle is history from the enlightenment the presidency? You're focusing mostly on the modern era. But let's start just briefly with that premodern era talk about what our earliest ideas of seduction were. Maybe perhaps grounded in with Allah G. And then how that changed as you moved into the Judeo Christian era the reason I start in the enlightenment. There's no because seduction didn't exist before seventeen hundred is because that's when seduction narrative as we understand it was born and the book is about this very powerful strange and modern thing seduction narrative which was basically invented in the eighteen th century and the product of a response to a whole new wave of ideas about the human mind about what we now think of. Feminism will prototype eminem and also about the discovery of sexual freedom as part of the blue celebrating our freedom and the enlightenment and before then you had a situation where sexuality was heavily pleased. It was subject to legal and religious interrogation and you know in America. Of course you had The puritans were very big on sexual policing but also in and the rest of Europe as well and over the course of the eighteenth century that whole value system changed. By the end of the Eighteenth Century Sexual Freedom was for granted and to be cleared. Sexual Freedom for them was not the sexual freedom that we now cherish worry about. That really meant that women go to choose. Who They married. That's where the foundation sexual freedom was not explains basically every Jane austen novel for instance. That is the undependable. The plus. They're out of plenty other novels besides and then more generally a kind of increasingly faraji towards male sexuality in particular so you see the rise of the double standard would be in spectacularly bad behavior of the rates of London and Paris Venice. You say that there were three modes of thought that really gave rise to the modern seduction narrative liberalism materialism and feminism. Let's talk about liberalism for example. How does that bring us? But we consider to be seduction as it is today in John. Look Letter of colouration. He He makes us interesting comment race. Is that basically? Everyone is going to have to look after their own. Their prospects of their own souls so liberalism is no longer going to tell people how to live their lives and what to do and instead they're going to have to have their own moral accounting and if in the religious view if they'd be living badly that we dealt with in the off the world it's not gonNA dealt with by the government and the President and obviously if you think about it back then because up until that point they'd be bathing policing sexuality quite a lot and sexuality was once you're saying okay. Everyone's GonNa look after their own moral well-being and the government's going to step out of it. The second and third order consequence of that include a increasingly hands off attitude towards sexuality and basically people are left to make their own decisions and see how how ends up so. It's not that people sat around in the late seventeenth century and said we're going to invent liberalism and one that includes sexual freedom sexual freedom flowed quite logically from this this view that we're not going to try and make everyone lived where he wants them to and that's because they tried that in Seventeenth Century. Europe and being horrific bloodshed and wars and everything else and they wanted you to move beyond that how it's addiction flow from materialism again because we'll be philosophers like like Locke and hume. They were kind of operating on the assumption that we're living in a godless world and they they were very careful how they frame that and Voltaire as well. Then we're castle how. They framed that because of course you won't read out to be an atheist but once you get to the position where we're saying. Okay they're not angels and devils and there's no Holy Spirit brought in the world and instead it's just individuals with brains achieving reality once you make those leaps you can move from new Ford away from this moralistic view of sexuality and towards an idea and that's like psychological view of reality and that's seduction narrative dramatize is this internal monologue about reason about passionate about desire and not basically the entire genre of the novel possible. And if you read these early novels like Richardson who had discussed at some length. Those books now in the more or less unreadable right ABBA time now. If you're named Pamela centrally forced to read Samuel Richardson so you know it comes with the you've read it that I have read and Shamanov so yes so been down that unfortunate path. To what extent is the history of seduction also a history of power and power dynamics? One way of looking at it is that it's not a matter of about power. One way of looking at it is that in fact sexual freedom is empowering and people who practice sexual freedom or taking control of their lives and our free liberated individuals and not seeing a strain and food since the Enlightenment Henry Fielding Mary Wilson Kroft Plus He Shelley Mary Shelley Khatri at all the way up to the present where people you know saying well. People shouldn't be telling me how to live my life. So I'm not I'm not part of it. Basically rejects the idea that seduction is about power and it says actually selections about about freedom and choice but obviously power is a complex thing to discuss. But I root it's about coercion and seduction it about agency. And as soon as our collides with especially in situations where you know that sexual inequality economic inequality there's racial inequality very quickly. We can see how adoption courtship can shade into something daca. You go into issues around race and seduction and in particular America's laws and attitudes around race in the book talk about those parts of the book America in the nineteen. Th Century developed this very extensive body of state laws placing seduction and eventually America how to federal law. The man act which was essentially a seduction Laura in everything but name and in the American south. Clearly it wasn't just a question of the law there were lynchings and these lynchings were often justified by reference to alleged sexual assaults or you know interracial relationships happening not not as true all the way up to an until so. It's not just that was seduction literature. Racial is clearly that was a very serious and horrifying epidemic of racial violence. Often had a sexual subtext. But in the case of the laws the laws designed to empower kind of racial scrutiny of sexual relationships and the mind acts was used to in California was used to prosecute lots of Japanese immigrants who had interracial relationships in the northeast and the Midwest where there were lots of Jewish immigrants or Polish German immigrants. It was used to kind of put further scrutiny communities and then the story. I tell about Joe Johnson who was the first black heavyweight champion of the world it was used to basically hound this man who they couldn't lynch or there were several attempts to do so until they tried to to get him in the courts. Did You keep the book focused on heterosexual seduction or do you cover sex relationships as well? I mentioned overseeing the enlightenment though. Is this on Abrasion of sexual freedom. I should have a code of that. Which obviously it was a celebration of heterosexual. Freedom of sexual freedom was not tackled until the nineteen sixties and seventies and beyond. So I do keep a focus on on heterosexual relationships but the simple reason is that that's deduction narrative of itself was born about this new idea of celebrating sexual freedom without sexual freedom did not include the same sex and curious about the origin of this book. Like is this something that you began before you were at waterstones is the nonfiction or a one of the nonfiction buyers or did this kind of evolve. Why hasn't anyone written about this? And getting all these other books about these other things but there's no good history of seduction. The funniest seed of this book was what I was living in America just finished Grad School in DC. And I was just reading novels like dangerous liaisons and a hero of our time and I kind of kept on coming across this theme of the Seduction Narrative. And it just wouldn't go away and it kind of knew it away me for several years and I kind of this whole history of the seduction laws which I find well fascinating and weird and then of course in in our own time. A lot of things have happened. The rise of the pick up this online dating or the rest of it. I had this of intuition that there was a story And it was the story larger than just what was going on now that it had a history and yeah. I was pretty much convinced that every day. Open the newspaper and someone in Britain the book but they never did give it a go. Well this segment is going up on Valentine's Day so it feels appropriate to ask you about your favorites seduction narrative. Dangerous liaisons novel is is is absolutely amazing. I would recommend twenty one I. It's incredibly that it was actually written two centuries ago and there have been several great adaptions of it and they were to the nineteen eighty s and then those cruel intentions made out of it in the ninety s which I think is fantastic film still. I mentioned briefly a hero of our time by lemon of again. I think everyone should read that book. And it was an incredible and the Russians were really heavily influenced by the English narrative. They will read some Richardson. They'd read Palmer and Clarisa. Bridgeton is name checked in Eugene Oregon. And of course they wrote obsessed with Byron who was a kind of mythical seducer lifetime and so the whole Russian tradition wouldn't really exist without those two figures and he said in London. Tolkien postgame also tolstoy as well all right well. I guess plenty of people to read over Valentine's Day maybe not moves people's chosen activity and this particular day but if if you are alone with book those are the ones to pick up in addition to of course deduction clement. Thanks for being here
‘No comment. Next question.’ Jeff Bridich’s feud with Nolan Arenado is now a Rockies cold war
"But one talk to you a little bit about your pride each and what happened today down Salt River that pitchers and catchers reporting all very exciting Rockies is there another first spring training game on the twenty second organ of course be carrying the games it was we are the flagship and it is exciting hope springs eternal every single for a every single team even teams in the midst of a time of turmoil like the Houston Astros there everybody's excited and and in the Rockies have so it's a mother challenges but right now the overwhelming stories about known are not like that that is that is the story and so if you ask anybody about the Rockies it's what's going on with the lawn what are the old patch this thing up and so far we've really only heard Nolan side we know that there are there do there been some warmer porch back and forth there's been some reported trade interests of the Rockies have listened to trades but Jeff price really hasn't spoken publicly about this I'm not really so he had an opportunity today in and as I understand it it was kind of cleared by PR like PR was going to what we had kind of line this supplications gonna say something about it he told the assembled media and then it just price was kind of put in front of him to say something and and this is kind of how it went down use it to you would speak to us briefly about the Nolan situation so we thought we to start off with that of the top so from your perspective what would you just like to say about what's been out there publicly about nothing revision comment made any comment to this point so in the past thanks six question okay so as you heard there said Warren who of course works PR for the Rockies he he kind of put it right out there saying Hey guys he's gonna have something to say about this and then his comment was no comments and I have nothing to add to this and next question it's always a Patrick Saunders ended up being the guy and he's he does a phenomenal job with post and and and and you know he he was just the kind of guy that had to ask the question somebody's got as good hi I have a few thoughts in this band but first I'd like to kind of get your your perspective on what what went down there and Jeff prices decision not to say anything I I I I I feel like the Rockies need to say something beyond what's been said because right now in the public domain the only story that exists is now it is our not as version and with any story there's three sides to it his hers in the truce it's so I'd I'd like the Rockies to have some kind of public comment on it and I ages feels like passing on commenting right now with the no comment I really feel like that's the wrong way to tackle this one I that's not how I would do it I understand it I I I may have to catch my language I may have to in a press conference environments that insider specifics I won't get into but there has been some animosity here obviously Nolan felt disrespected me went out of his way to say that and we we've got a bridge to cross but you should put something out there that says something other than no comment you don't even have to give any real details you say it the way I just said it was just a present anything new you'll have to you'll have to give specific short with new information out there you can rehash what's already out there but and and and couch it in that regard and people take that quote it be okay with this it's P. R. speak writes exactly is what people do yeah we we expected that like we we don't we don't have it we're we're the home of the Rockies in the home of the of the Broncos here so when I say this I want you to understand that I'm saying that you know a week we get all the jokes about the state sponsored radio a kind of stuff from competitors around town that can't afford to carry the broadcast rights but what we are the flagship of both and I'm criticizing one the Broncos face he sings had all they do and that's one of things you do have to give consideration like you heard at the very beginning say Hey Warren said that you're going to say something if Patrick Smyth says we're gonna say something about this they do it and and they got a player out there that's right talk about a player with a manual in Cortland yeah the physical altercation camp and then they were out there come by on it up the next day with jokes they were obviously still matter Locke believes you knew what was coming the Broncos do a great job and I don't see here Kerry orange blue cool aid or whatever it is that they say but you get the point the juxtaposition between the way these two organizations handle negative things is glaring and this was an opportunity and I think the way you pointed out is is absolutely fair there's an opportunity here for Jeff bright H. as bad as well as a bit of a conduit to the fans like it in the end he has to do remember he is a public face sorry for the Rockies leave a voice he's out there to talk to the media and to tell them everything's gonna be okay like tell the fans Hey listen I know there's a lot of things out there we're focused on the season no one are not I was going to be here we're ready we're ready to play baseball that dad right we're excited about a softball and what will work out that's that that would have been a completely appropriate when you do it like that it's also Jeff price thought if I say no comment then this will die like it'll be the end of infected actually makes it much more as a lien on the fire especially his body language if you watch the video it's a combination I I tend to not like do a lot of body language thing at the blood that becomes kind of over blown but in this case like the combination of no comment like he looked sour about even being asked about it when the media was just doing their job personal to have to ask well it's eight ever leaders of anything Ryan nine days ever there's that side of it too but but but more than anything with with with pride H. he is he kind of forgot something here in my opinion he forgot what he what the fans are desperately wanting to hear about their star player that he is the face of the organization of the conduit for the organization and that shouldn't ever really like that should never go away from the forefront of your mind we're out there speaking when you're speaking for you you're speaking for the organization you're speaking to the media who are going to go talk to the fans and the fans just wanted to know he's everything a be okay because no one are those were my favorite players of all time and I want to watch in this year and I want to know that we're trying to contended do something and instead I get no comment and for me like like what did you think was going to be solved by doing that saying no comment is different than not having a comment at the not saying anything at all yeah it was it was a little bit confusing all right really is a little confused by that played today because it's it's certainly not going away was going to go away anyways but now it's a bit was is a bigger story yeah it's the price seems absurd misconceptions about the media yeah I was almost almost in a battle with the media he is the conduit information between the organization of fans you can't have eighty five thousand fans come flood a press conference a locker so you have some assembled media commits the pool you know they come in and they do it they get those quotes information package about put him in a in an article or sound bite and they presented to the fans at large that's the media's job just to relay the information just to take the facts from here because you can only fit twenty people in this room and then turn around disseminated to the fans ask the questions instead of the fans it's where your representative democracy you know what we are reps here and so the the idea that the media is the enemy for bright is it's just it's a wall you know it is hardly the first GM to do it like that very point but he's but he's not helping himself and you think of the modern age people be savvy enough to understand Hey you guys are just taking the stuff the fans what I need to do is just repackaged all the information is already here and a friend will sell by two gets buried in the third paragraph of the calm they're going to write instead of saying no comment getting a brand new title at the top of the column the twenties guys gonna write and that's exactly the right has nothing to say which says everything in it of it you know it and I I got the headlines right themselves and adds more fuel to the fire exactly that died there's a disconnect between our not all the star player this team that they just gave an extension to and the front office which again now adds more conversation and call links to the winds are gonna be traded when when the Rockies gonna what we are and then on top of that now for said this earlier today I want to give him some credit he said it also I'll other thing I want to say he said this but it's something to the effect of that that that is also maybe even weaken your position a little bit as it relates to trade value because now it shows very publicly that there is a disconnect yeah there's a rift you know we don't know all that there was a rift in we knew because we heard it we we saw what era said but we did have a knowledge within the organization so you could have skewed the grout the chasm there the open space was misunderstanding that's not
Analyst Brandel Chamblee on all things golf
"All Right Ladies Gentlemen we are joined by a very special guest a friend of ours ars Panama on probably a handful types now. But I think it's been at least a year so he is the lead analyst for Golf Channel One of the best analysts in the game. I got a whole intro. Here wait till you see all this he is a PGA tour winner the Greater Vancouver Open in nineteen ninety eight. He is now defunct finished well about. We're not worried about that. He finished tied for Eighteenth at the nineteen ninety nine masters never made the cut of the PGA Championship. Which I want to ask you about tied for forty fourth at the two thousand and one? US Open tied for sixty second at the open championship in two thousand one. Pretty good stretch author of the anatomy of greatness. Which I've read Mr brand-new shambling? Welcome come to the show my friend. Yeah those last few terms are not defunct. They're still they're still they're still up and running And it's always a pleasure to join you guys Who's there in the studio? We've got myself guys. Would you like to introduce yourself Frankie here brandon. Trent also got lurch. That could to meet you four to it so you tell us a little bit pre show that you just came from a little shoot with rory. I wanted to address royal because I was just reading this article earlier. This week. That came out independent. Paul kimmage was going on with Rory. You know nothing's off limits a an amazing acing insightful interview and he mentioned you rory in this interview and there are some negative words that you have received leave before some positive words but I thought we would start with some very positive words from rory and what happened was I played a little clip from year guys discussion on live from from or golf central or whatever it was right after the Patrick read winning the masters a few years ago and the clip. You essentially Go through how this has to be the most disappointed. The point that rory's Ben since leaving Augusta in two thousand eleven you talk about Amnesia from his first tee shot that day which if anybody remembers he hits it a million yards right off the first tee and you talk about that had to creep into the rest of his game and rory goes on to say it hurts when you're on the receiving end and sometimes I think And sometimes all that stuff hurts but I think brandon was one of the smartest guys in Gulf. He's brilliant I like him. He's giving me a book on. Bobby Locke I have it here. So so what are your thoughts and hearing those kinds of comments from Roy a that that type of stuff you know it hurts to hear but also be that he says you're the smartest guys in the game. Yeah you know when you said that in a chair where somebody asked every two minutes. What do you think Why did he do that what you know? What reasons did he? You know made him win. Why did he lose those kinds of things? I mean you have to very often say critical things if people you really like and admire and sometimes you have very complimentary things about people that you don't particularly care for it's just the nature of the job and you know and also the nature of Of all of us that I could wax on for an hour about all the great attributes and the one thing everybody will remember just one critical comment Has All the time I'll do interviews with people and go on and on and on about a particular player for I don't know Ten minutes and then I might say one critical thing and then that'll be the headline and in the story or the podcast or whatever I get totally understand it But it's just hard of the. It's a part of the job I have it. So it's the nature of the job. I have in the analysis business. And you know if you say everything's great and when something comes along. That really is great. While you've desens- Does the whole world and they're not going to believe you so you know he set up there. At least I do I sit there and I just try to as best I can but shots in historical context and when they're great you know without being hyperbolic great when there are awful without being pollick awful so he goes on to sort of talk about how the Rangers that day. He had a left mess. Then he comes out to the first day and he hits it miles right right and your analysis was obviously that though that that shot is clearly. He's going to remember that throughout the entire day at affected the rest of his round. Like how could you tell that. Anita from that. Shot from whatever's going on with the swing was affecting the rest of his entire route. I it's informed by I years and years and years and years of struggling with those issues myself and You know I mean we all have those issues. You had a horrible horrible shot off the first tee or somewhere around the rest of the round in particular when you get to a place where that miss is now Even more vulnerable people because of a penalty. Then they're gonNA favor it and predictably miss it the opposite direction are they gonNA make nuanced changes to their offspring. So I've I've spent the last twenty years of my life watching golf. The way radiologists looks at X.. Rays you know I. I'm I'm all in I'm all allies and I am I research every detail of it and you know it's it's a it's an educated. Guess I guess if you want to call it what it really was but Roy May differ with me later on in that interview. He said he forgot about. It doesn't think about it and and and again I say you know. There is a crucial crucial role of Amnesia. The maintenance power of every athlete you have to be able to forget the inability to forget is infinitely more more devastating than an inability to remember for an athlete. You've got to be able to forget the bad stuff Years ago there was a people talk about about this interview that Jack Nicklaus gave or this speech rather than dynamics gave where he said he'd never missed a pot on the last hole that he needed to make and a man held his arm Arma said. Excuse me Mr Nicholas just last week I was watching you and a PGA tour champions event you had a four hundred or on the last. Oh you missed it and maybe you just kind how to forget that one. and Mr Jackson let me repeat at Never Mr Putt on the last hole of the tournament that I needed to make and the man in the crabbers incredulous and later on he went up and talked to Bob. Tell this man sin. Why wouldn't Jag just admit it? And and Bob said well hold on a second. That's how you think right and Manson absolutely got admit go so you're telling the greatest athlete of all time that he should think how you think you're far often the greatest athlete of all time or maybe. We should just all jacking and again. That's and Mesia. You need to have it. You need to extract. All of the good there is is to get out of every situation and then forget all the bad and then and then move on. I remember one time. One thing you told me was that you know in order to really get to that level level where you're a we're obviously talking about some of the best players of all time and Roy who's going to be the number one ranked player in the world again here very soon but like to get to that top level you you basis Jason like at some level you have to just beat almost delusional. I mean you have to have almost a blind ridiculous illogical belief in yourself at the Times that like your perfect and even better than you actually think you are and if you don't you just can't make yeah. I mean the game of golf for sport in general and he'd you're constantly attacked by not only the people that you're competing against but by the media and fans listen and then you have your own sort of Uninvited guests in your head. You know this little demons pop up and and you you have to lay waste all of those as best you can and you can do it through sort of you know arrogance you can do it to sort of self delusion but I mean it's rare that the the athletes can get to that place where they need to get through sort of rational balanced Thought and I think that's one of the things that makes rory such an appealing superstar. Superstar is that he's a lot closer to federal Along the lines to be approachable humble symbol And yet the right level of arrogance me word has a negative connotation to but I think it's important to have the right level of arrogance as an athlete but it's so often accompanied by the less poudel aspects of that word. The right level level of it is Well it's it's very present in Roy. So let's fast forward a couple years for his game now he's Mid's mm it's kind of insane has been since two thousand fourteen that he's won a major championship of course had really good years along the way really good finishes very consistent Golf. Where do you see his game? Now a specially as putting I mean I know you've you've done a ton of research on on putting feel versus technical and all that rory's biggest struggle has been the putting were you general thoughts on Roy's game going this year especially as putting. Yeah well I think you made changes in the way. He prepares works out and that has allowed his body to move better so he's less inclined to get injured. Still got this. You know. Full reg motion and lots of speed I think had to go there with the working out with rory I like it. Yeah but I mean He. I as I've when I criticize if you want to use that word his workout routine. I was watching him getting injured. Nagging injuries popping up. I was watching his Co.. PEDS BE DECLINE AT AGE win. It should have been maintaining or even going up and you know I mean he I I said what I said. I couldn't have it with anymore. Caveats and the next day he posted a video game. Self working out I think I've told you this before about a month later I was on a set of live from said that the match-play WDC AC match-play Roy. One in fulfilling an obligation on the set nice come up but I was busy. I was working. I didn't look his direction at intern around when he was walking off no effort to connect with him and I felt a tap on my back and turn around and goes you know I was just fm with you you know. That's that's what we do. I was just having fun because I didn't mean any armide and I was like I get no problem. I didn't take offence to it at all but but I think in the long run. I do believe that rory changed as the way he fares works out so his body moving better less inclined to get injured And then with the short game you know I think he made a good move going to work with the Brad Faxon I say work with. It's really just having conversations with then and Brad is given him permission if you will to be less careful on the grains to be more clinic more reactionary which is crazy because because you know the game of golf right now is just inundated with pseudo-scientists pat sells off as a pseudo scientists and then and then they have cluttered up the game with very complicated esoteric thoughts that are not doing their students any favors whatsoever and I think Roy did a good the job of divorce in himself from those thoughts those ideas and those teachers and he's on the right path and then I think mentally were whatever place he needed to find find he got there towards the end of last year to sort of play his best gall I think. You know the rivalry. They may not call it a rivalry but it certainly feels like looks like rivalry between Brooks So I think that's that's fine tuned. Whatever it was it was missing trump his game into To a great spot so it sets up I think beautifully for Roy going into twenty twenty. What's your relationship like with Brooks Kepco? He kind of tweeted. I love what may or may not have been a clown picture with your face on it. Yeah I don't have a relationship with Brooks I yeah. I don't have a relationship with mini tour players of said forever that my job is sort of incompatible with having relationships toward players to speak about I think Brooks's a heck of talent Allen but I I think Brooks comes to this game sort of a A team sport combative Sports Sports Mentality. I think that's the sort sort of sensibility that he brings to go off. It's not really consistent with the traditions of the game. And it's a gentleman sport I think his comments mints about there'd be no rivalry between him and rory and saying that Roy hadn't won a major championship since he was Plan the PGA tour. which which by the way is ludicrous because it was a professional Golfer and twenty twelve? He just wasn't good enough to play on the stage. That Roy was on. I do believe Roy's won three major championships. Pittsburgh successional dolphins so it was Just disrespectful Not only the traditions of the game. It was disrespectful to rory And I wouldn't be surprised if you know and and sort of a roundabout way Work to motivate rory. Don't know that I'm just guessing but but who wouldn't use that to To motivate them so. I don't think like that face picture. Brandel I don't think you like Brooks did that to you. I think he's had that comment that he wasn't good enough for a long time. He's back I don. I saw it. I thought it was funny. I actually posted a picture of myself with a clown shortly shortly after that in response to his clowns because I it doesn't bother me. I mean it's again it comes with the territory of what I do for a living did that. There's GonNa be some retribution or or Kickback from some of the things. I've said you know I I I said before I mean I'm kind of half joking but I have left a few shows before and thought. Wow I don't really agree with what I said You know sometimes it just comes out wrong. Aw Show true boy. Have I been there gene. How do I get there now? He's talking about that happened. That's breaking segment right there. I mean we. It's it's incredibly feature that sometimes you just start you come from a good place with it. You know you have the information and then by the time it all comes out. You're like what the fuck did I say seriously. Yeah I don't would agree with what I just said. It happens from time. TV or radio or PODCASTS. It's a little golf. I mean just get it wrong. Ties make mistakes as a book. You know You try not to try to learn from us. Try to be accurate you know. That's the goal is to be accurate. Fair it doesn't always work out that way.

Steve Haskin Discuss What Is True Horseracing
"Listen I don't WanNa put a damper on things or anything but you know to me. This was not was not true. Horse racing at least as I know it And I I will say that the grass races were were all good. I have no problem with that but after after that a lot of things that just get ugly for me you know. I don't WanNa see horses and jockeys coming back on on a track labelled fast looking like they just been rolling in the sandbox I realized being zealous in their attempt to make detract safe which is understandable expandable. But in my opinion they did. They did at the expense of the racing I mean who's who says you have to make a track excessively really deep and tiring to make it safe. I mean they're they're faster race tracks. I go back look at the aqueduct over the years and they're all in in highly even even the old old Santa Anita track was always safe. Saratoga I mean these are basically safe racetracks. You know so. So what's going on now. I can understand but sometimes you can overdo something and you know. And as much as as I liked Vino Rosso in the classic and you know one all kinds of bets on them To tell you the truth I can never ever watch that race again for abuse reasons to search too much 'cause actually liked Mongolian groom ally and and actually thought at one point in the race that he looked like he was gonna Finish in the money but you know all the repercussions of that. which most I think most of it is just nonsensical? In fact I just read somewhere that you know the vet came that came out. The trainer came out and said it was perfectly sound. You know and understand these things happen. There's no there's absolutely no blame here at all. Just the fact that it happened. That hurts just like it's hurt from all the other incidents in fatal fatal incidents in the past. And you know I go back I was there for roughing it. I was there for go for one. That was there for prairie by you. I mean there for a lot of witnesses and every time you go through a little bit out of you and you know I I I just sort of get attached the Mongolian. Groom not only from a betting standpoint but I just like the connections and and the and the the horrible irony of it is the fact that you know right after the race. He stated emphatically that. They're not going that they don't want to put up two hundred thousand dollars and and then you figured some offers would come in to to get a piece of it and put up. Put up the the supplementary fee and they said you know now talking to date decided to change their mind put up the money and and and then this happened so I know how absolutely devastated everybody. Everybody was there So but you know that's not even what I'm talking about when I'm talking about About the debris come you know I. I just don't want to see the best distance. Sources in the country stagger home the last half a mile and fifty two seconds. That's not resource time time I you can make the track slower and slower and slower but it was weird because the the formula was the same old data. We're going faster early legitimate. The sprint races were run fast but I mean come home the last year from fifty two. I mean that's ridiculous and you know it wasn't that the horses were bad. It was at the race crack. You know that. They poured truckloads of sand on the day before the Breeders Cup. You know and speaking of the classic Nick and that Racetrack. I certainly don't want to see the V to bed. Closes in the country. Never even pick up their feet and get beat fifteen lengths and seventeen links like they're running through quicksand. And I had agreed with Doug mcgann. He's original plan to skip the Breeders Cup and was totally against it when they change their mind. I knew the odds were stacked against them. Being three year olds shipping West I quoted that statistic that they were over twenty two in the past. I and especially with the track favoring speed at that time and I had no idea that it would get even worse for him when he got there and I don't think I don't think shook did either either. I think he was Kinda surprised how how track was playing how deep it was and how come from behind horses were were just spinning their wheels. We also hallway so you don't WanNa see that you know you just don't want to see any kind of track bias when you've got the championships at stake. I mean it was a lot at stake. Code of honor but you know so. Now he's got to End His Campaign very ingloriously. But that's just the beginning You know you look at Look at the beach I mean I I I don't WanNa see arguably the most exciting and talked about horse in the the entire Breeders Cup. Who's been on just off the pace going six furlongs to a mile in an ace in every one of his starts eight and a half lengths back at the half mile? Call all of the dirt mile and still five lengths back at the poll. You know. He's he's still runs one of the best races of his life despite the track and he can't even get close to you know I'm not taking anything away from spun to run but he can't even get close to that horse. You know who was beaten nine links in the Haskell who I I was at parks when he beat gray magician by heading the smarty Jones he ran well in the Pennsylvania Derby but he's still fit and then suddenly turned into a superstar overnight. Overnight gets a one ten buyer and some small stakes at parks despite never having run a triple digit Byron his life so I mean Karama beach I mean even to get close to that horse and to come from that far out of it and where the heck was cold front you know in twelve career starts. He's I've been on the lead or within a link to the lead in every in every start in the met mile. He's on the leading forty four and one for the half but in this race he's running V v six and a half lengths off the lead. I mean I don't get that. Where was he so you want to run? As soon as he went out there you know and opened up to three lengths. She said nobody's nobody's going to catch the source on this racetrack. And like I said I thought I thought the Omaha Beach Randy terrific race to get second and even staying with the dirt mile. Yeah I don't WanNa see the second and third choices you look improbable and Mr Money. who were both being very highly touted touted By their trainers and many of the experts. And who would training brilliant leaguge swimming out there never picking their feet up then got beat nine of ten ten and three quarter lengths. You know now you get to midnight. Be Sue I don't WanNa see the best filling in the country unable to make up an inch aground. In the last days the mile with a final creates run in under forty seconds. You know what in the world we should be doing running ace at the top of the stretch You you know I mean it was a was it. A bad ride was just bad. Racing Locke was was big track. I mean take your pick but affiliates not supposed to be that far back and and if you watch the race you could see blue price who you know. Give her credit you know. She wants to come from off the pace but he had a made her she had to make a move move back stretch and it had lead ready at the eighth pole you know and then you know finally you look at Friday. I don't WanNA see your race with into the strongest W prospect. Seen in years. Completely fall apart. You have a forty five to one shot at twenty eight to one shot and thirty nine to one shot come from first third and fourth to finish one two three and the three to two shot running second stops to a walk getting beat over twelve lengths. You you know and then you know meanwhile before five shot and erase stumbles at the start and finish dead last so to me. That race was a total bust. In fact to tell you the truth by the way if somebody had told me a week before the Breeders Cup that we were GonNa see the Derby favourite less weekend and it would not be a it would not be any of the three favorites more. Would it be scabbard. Nor anybody else in the juvenile but it would be the winner of the national stakes the next day by far and away the most impressive two year old. Maybe most impressive overseeing the team your weekend and then you go to the other dirt race. On on Friday juvenile fillies you know we have to brilliant phillies coming off. A dominating wins literally staggering home rubber-legged in in an agonizing slow twenty seven three and seven and two for the last sixteenth of a mile. I didn't raise sources. Could run that slow so to to me. You know this is just one. I'M GONNA forget very quickly but this would have forgotten about it by now. If I didn't have to talk about out of here I listen. I'm sure I'm sure a lot of other people feel are being too harsh. But what can I do. It's just the way I feel. You know maybe it's just I've got too many Committee races behind me.
Alex Lieblong, Bill Gallo
"Alex congratulations thank you we'll go at every moment of it you know that what a perfect lead in because to enjoy I mean you obviously enjoy winning more than more than not winning but you you you guys are are so toward the race day and the race game we're very good actors I love it I love it it is a great game and we we thoroughly enjoy and to be around and you know always I'm not around the backside at some or with all the other people for Mehta's either involved in game you're missing an awfully big part of it there's no doubt a- and you know you the operating in in a lot of different capacities too because of course the Arkansas Racing Commission you've volunteering time towards that and I do want to talk to you about some of the the administration portions of of you know your involvement but let's let's talk about the stuff I and and this philly the thing that struck me immediately is that you know this is and to my memory Alex one of the one of the best early horses that that you guys have had I mean we're certainly used to you know what when with telling and and the big beasts that embellish the lace whose biggest wins came you know at three and and beyond this is early this is a win early horse for you it is early yeah always we've been a little bit you know maybe to patient but you know that's in one one comes out early and pokes his head out then you need to go on but I've always said unless they tell you they go don't worry about it on on our count you know so it's just She sat at early on that she was ready and and I have to give a big thanks to Robbie hairs because he's one of the sale and I've known Robbie along damage broke a lot of horses for me and he said I've you have you seen this such and such over titled Might but now and he said Y'all let's take a look and say after I look at it didn't take long to look at it you know to to like her and she has just progressed and a lot of them you know they'll progress around and back up a little bit and and then get going again but she just you know kept putting one foot in front of the other so once they said hey he's 'cause I wasn't I don't push for him to be ready at Saratoga but he yeah this one's ready for Saratoga and I said Okay and one wants somebody like ask and Robbie through the Horse's training to you know they're doing what in fact when Robbie came to me he said I found another valid ways and that's about and he did break embellish way so that got my that really got mantra stuff ooh wow this this win the the winner for Zet obviously you know does a lot toward recovering the half a million dollar per just price as a yearling makes her instantly valuable down the road but there's some big things that had we'll we'll talk about what's coming not but I do want to I do want you to flesh out the philosophy that you enjoy in have in terms of stock acquisition and and development and also how it's changed over the years well we've gotten a little bit smarter just trial and error out game and it's taken a long time you know we come from a little bit of a quarter horse background thoroughbred there's some there's some references there and I got tickled about the there's a lot of different somebody's watch you want all games last night made the comment about they were talking about some of the Trades that the Washington senators have made over here and they brought this up and said Yeah he's been twenty shutouts in five days and I thought yeah that's doc thoroughbred they used to you know can you imagine someone three-shot apps and five days now it's it's a point is you know not not like what we're going to or at the same way but I mean how many times I'm hoping after last remember when people actually played it's anti fence doubleheaders you know so things that they've changed for those sports and ours doubt how did you and I and I didn't I didn't realize that you you put in time with the quarters and talk about the a regional regional aspect to come in from Arkansas and and you know what when did I get involved with any kind of equine sports oh we would probably you know in junior high school or somewhere in there and that's when the Rodeo aspects starts here and then you get into high school joe and semi professional Rodeos I guess you're you're playing for money but I mean it's it's usually kind of a weekend circuits of speaking you know back then I always remember last year or Scott Longtime and they were on barrels off any run pose and then rope and bulldog all the same horse the same night and then I I that of course you could run twenty six the cavs often and we'd go home and we'd kick him out in the pasture we look at other nouns that we mistreat their horses that much because you know you just been thinking about it with Er fit and you look at them wrong and they kind of go backwards on you but it's it's it's just but again it's the same way human athlete I think in a lot lighter note saying same time for it the on the purchase and and the building of building a string what did you what did you do when you first got involved and what how has that changed with yearling purchase verses two year old and training and because you've dabbled in a couple of areas yeah I've Al- I've probably gotten more involved in the actual footwork and going and looking at horses android that part of it just about as much as I do other icing divorces and now that we've got the Big East is a lot of fun to watch some of his offspring one and you can't get this the same nervous sweaty hands watching offspring his man for somebody else to do with them I never thought I would get that that much pleasure out of it that's that's one new angle for us but I think more than anything I think going through the sales and it was like Robbie this horse when the FM big beast it was found his brother I somebody had said hey there's a horse needs to look at it this farm so when I was on my way up there and on another horse caught my eye on the way up their mascot look at this or and it was the big Bass half-brother Horse we later count Big Lou and he was he was a fairly decent horse but he got hurt in south West but that's what led me to the big beast and so you know like I say I'm crazy on hutches anything well and when it came to a supporting the big beast when the horses started to come to market and act I can think about when I saw you at the must've been the April sale at O. B. S. or the Marcher must have been April and you were you were shopping the big babies and how many did you end up getting involved with I think only about two or three not being a serial offender like hand sometimes it's they've both been you know not disappointed me yet one has one has has made me happier than the other but then neither neither one disappointed me and then we have some home breads and this year I think I probably got ten or eleven mayors info so I'd say it's just a whole new chapter in it and that with the with the other part of it well and the most recent the most recent was what the big affair the one that David Locke says down in Florida right big affair we've had big affair spring and somebody ran second they brassy East I think she got second out so they they've been somewhat the success for us and we're
"locke" Discussed on Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast
"It feels a little bit gimmicky. I go back to like boyhood is that a good film because it's a good film in film, because they did this really crazy gimmick where they took forever to film it with the same people over years and years and years and years that doesn't mean it's a bad movie. Just because it's gimmicky. I don't wanna see a whole lot of films set with people just to their cars calling other people at their hands free set. But yeah for this movie, Tom hardy, I like them good actor. I think this is one you might have to watch a few times just because it is a mystery that you have to piece together from all these different calls. But I think it's worth it. I think it's worth working through. It's all gives us a recommend Stewart ambivalent at all. I mean, I feel totally emotional. I feel like I just gave birth by even his movie. I'm wrecked to me have been an incredibly moving. Ernie and a lot of that rides on how impressively hardy is handled this one man show. It is the best showcase I can think of Tom hardy as an actor. He is able to do great things with subtlety. And again, what does he have to work with a car phone, and that's it? It's amazing. But the most radical thing about lock is. I think that we have the belief certainly if your diet of movies is predominantly Hollywood films in the or our regular, you have this belief that drama can only come out of these extreme anxieties stories have to involve guns aggression, people screaming at each other doing horrible things that conflicts have to be solved with violence and big pathos. This is a movie about calm and loving people. And it's radical that really I can take everyone side and feel like nobody is acting inappropriately that this is life that I feel like this is a purview. I guess in the way that some people might like reality television or hidden cameras. Kind of things you really feel like a fly on the wall at a very intimate moment at a man's life where he had to confront what he thought of himself and what he hoped for the future. And yeah, I was incredibly moved by the movie. So it's not even mild. I mean, I think this is really what a great films of the last ten years and highest recommends and much closer to Jacob in my feelings than Stewart. But I have to say in the time since I've watched this film when the movie was over is when I usually go to letterbox logged I watch it give it a ranking. And I was like where do I rank this one because on the one hand? Yes. It's fortunately short because it's not a visual film beyond looking at hardy, and there's only so long I care to look at any one person for a long time in a car be it in real life or on screen, and so I found it visually tedious, but yet narrative Lii in. Involving and Hardee's performance is absolutely in fucking credible. I just can't believe how much he was able to carry the story of guess, underestimated hardy. I mean, I've liked him in some stuff. But I've never been a fan of his of never seen what he could do until this movie. But over the time since I've seen it. I'm like, I really was invested in the work stuff. And I really was in suspense over who's the next call and call waiting is coming in the middle of a passionate conversation and just the amount of realism to that fact of what it's like to be getting those calls when you have call waiting coming in and the arguments are happening funny. Little story about that. That was a happy accident. They were driving around. And what happened was the car started saying low on fuel? They overdubbed it by saying call waiting, but every time you hear that it was not scripted. It was just the car interrupting with the line. That's funny. But yeah, I don't know if it's mild regular strong. I can tell you. It's always going to be a recommend. And it may be something that with time become stronger. But I definitely like the film, but I'll give it the caveat. As I mentioned at the top. I like one man plays..
"locke" Discussed on Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast
"Oh lock. Hey, I remember you and that gets him in there as well. Yeah. I think he's proving to himself our level of value that he's built into his name. And yeah, he's holding that and hopefully passing it on. I mean, I think since birth because of being a bastard he just never felt like his name was worth anything. And I mean, this is quite a thing to realize that. Actually commanded the respect of all these people, and that is Dame is going to to make sure that at least the building's going to be okay. But is the baby going to be? Okay. That's again, what we're building to were pretty much at the end of this movie, and they're teasing that along the doctors been calling nurses have been calling. It sounds like it's going bad. And it sounds like she won't do the medical procedure the caesarian to save the baby's life until he gets there. And that he has to basically talk her out of it. I think she says I do it because I love you. But it's because he's able to convince her it's the right thing that she is holding a healthy baby. At the end of the movie I had to theories on how this movie would end. Maybe it's because last week we reviewed face off. But my mind was very firmly in nineties indie films. I'm like either the baby's going to die or locks gonna die. I was waiting for car accident something I thought for sure that the twist irony at the end would be the baby's dead. You fucked your whole life and now have nothing. That would be such a bitter pill to Hollywood's not the word, but you're right to Indy. The most cynical idea or the most happy idea would both feel wrong here. I think Hugh closer to the reality. Which is that there's some good that come out of this. And there are some obviously negative stuff. And there's some stuff that we don't know if it'll be resolved at night, and that way, this movie feels very European. It reminds me of like French new wave more than anything made in the last twenty thirty years here in America. Yeah. One point law calls up ethin- and gets her voicemail. And he tells her you deserve to be happy. And I do feel like for lock that isn't emotional moment. I'm like, okay. He's got some kind of feeling because. Yeah, you should be happy for this guy. That's as close as to it. I love you like they don't go Serpia sweet where he comes around her. But he's like, yeah. You deserve to be happy. Good for this character. That's a pretty good wish to get from him. Yeah. He lays concrete, he doesn't live in the skyscraper. He just make sure that it can be built. I want a sock. Alad foundation for whatever is going to happen. But I can say that I at least delivered the babies the building will be built correctly, thanks to Donal and some polish people at the last minute. And yes, there's child I don't know what kind of future it will be. And I do believe that Ivan is prepared to he's never implying that he's going to give up his life and move in with her and raise this baby. But the baby is healthy and has shot at the future. Well, does this movie have a shot at some recommends? Jacob Stuart do you recommend lock Jacob. I don't know. I kind of feel like Sean sponsored this podcast. Yeah. I don't know to really get a grasp on this one. I'd probably have to watch it a few more times my impressions again because I had expectation set up from that trailer. And then it ended up. I'm like, okay. I got a reset and reevaluate what I think of this film. Look, I'm not gonna argue at Tom Hardy's acting. It's great. There's some gripping dialogue the concrete stuff. I love all the concrete stuff. In this. Oh, so intense. How you're gonna get the rebar fix and do this and that get your permits? Dope. Closed the street down do the poor. So that's what's amazing about this film. It's dude in a car just calling people for ninety minutes, and there's some really gripping stuff, and then there's all the family life stuff all of that..

"They even proposed the idea you can come home. Well, rewatch the game. Like, we don't know the score. I mean, speaking big metaphor there. Let's pretend like we don't know what's going on. And have the night. We were supposed to have you were supposed to come home. Eat sausages. Watch this on TV with me not drive off to your mistresses, birth and other fine actor working on this project. Probably could win the Oscar this year Livia Coleman. She is Bethune. She will be nominated for the favorite. She was in the lobster. I really love this actress, she's usually good and Ribe British comedy. She was on the Orient Express recently to that was probably her most popular role. But she is I think very relatable she's more described. We know more about her from the way that lock will talk. She looks like an oil painting. No, she doesn't look like an oil painting. Oh, that's right. Yes. She is. No Oriel outs. Yeah. That one really did sting. But he will talk to other people about her and very political terms. I'm not in love with this person. And I never was we did something good. We poured some concrete. We poured some wine. She told me she was lonely and lock will even say is it all bad that I helped her out if her problem was she never thought she. He's going to have a kid if she believed her only chance at happiness is to have another being lover, and that would be a baby than maybe what he's done is in all that. Maybe it's not good. Or is he just trying to rationalize what he did to me? That's like rationalization it is. And yet. I mean, I think that there is a moral ambiguity in that. And I do sense from the tone of her voice. And all it's not as a prize that she's having pregnancy complication I can read a lot of anxiety coming off of her and a lot of need for what he's going to do yet. No amount of anxiety in the world causes an umbilical cord to wrap around neck. I mean, you could have other types of pregnancy problems. But breach of Billick cords, those are just physical anomalies. Oh when Beth in calls. She's like, I got my phone for just a minute here. There's been a twist maybe because we did all that m night stuff. I'm like that's a head Reeler intents. I know something's coming up. No, no twist. Yeah. I mean, the intensity is happening because we're now about forty minutes in the car ride. We know the score we know the issues even so how are they going to keep us involved for forty more minutes. It's that things are getting worse in all areas of his life. His wife is being vindictive. Betham is having a medical problem. Donald is too drunk to candle these new problems that are merging at the construction site, the rebars all fucked up. Yeah. I do feel an esscalation even though we're we're not going anywhere else. It's all headed in the same direction at with Beth, then okay? Maybe it's an exaggeration to say that her anxiety is calling an umbilical cord to wrap around her baby's neck, but I do feel like he's going there that night for her because he fears that she will not be able to deliver this baby healthy unless she has the allusion that he's there by her side. I don't think it's even about delivering the baby healthy so much sh she is guilted him into this. We get through inference and state. During the drive that over the course of this pregnancy. They I talked and it sounds like he was more opting for abortion, and she opted to keep it because it was her last chance at happiness. She's the one who keeps saying will you be here. She is in her mind having this delusion of the two of them and the baby off having this happy family thing. He's going because she is guilted him into it. And because he wants to be there for the child. I don't know if he's been guilted into anything. Yeah. The wording of that. I have a problem with because I mean, a nun will call up a doctor from the hospital will call up, and like are you on your way or you the partner? No, I'm just the father. There's something about how cold rashly is. I actually really admire because I would tend to probably get really emotional those moments..

"And he's had time to process his own goodbye. It's much more raw. I mean, I totally understand where she's at with it. I get where she's at. I would've liked to have seen a different of Lucien in her in that night because it feels like she goes through and. Ocean arc I realize she's very little time to process this. But she starts off nauseated at physically vomiting. Wow. She is really sensitive. I don't know if she's released a gifted I look at the circumstances. Is it crazy to react this way to vomit to be sick to your stomach? I just think let the punishment fit the crime, I've never dealt with this. But I have known many people whose marriages survived infidelity. This was a one night stand not an emotional affair. It was a one night stand with a very bad consequence. And she doesn't believe she's like one time never means one time as she's spiteful and hurt. Oh, if she's fucking you. She's fucking everybody. And can't we side with that? I mean, what it'd be infuriating to be so upset to find all these things and the other person's like will handle it. Don't worry. I gotta do this other thing, by the way. Can you get me this phone number? I left in my jacket. That's the hard part. I've been there. I have been in the mid. Middle of a fight with a girlfriend and needed something practical, and it was not ready. Yeah. Exactly. She wants him to be concerned only with their household. That's completely understandable. But that's not the game. He's playing. I'm juggling too much. And I am not going to draw one ball, and you are on my list of priorities, but you're not even necessarily number one. That's the hurt. That's the pain. One other thing point out is that the actress who I've also seen in many British costume dramas Ruth Wilson said that she came up with the idea with the director that she had already wanted to leave lock that in her mind because he was more concerned with his buildings and all of that that she had been dissatisfied without even fully realizing it, and that this was an opportunity for her to go with that feeling of let's do something else because I'm actually not happy in this marriage. That would help if I could have gotten some of that from the character that would've really helped that this would actually be a relief to her this gives her. Her the out. She's not the bad one. Yeah. Well, there I mean, it's called subtexts. Are you saying she's the I feel like she's the bad one in this scenario? It is lock. She's not the bad one. If she wanted to leave and she just abandoned her family, she'd be seen as the bad one. But now she's able to shirk all responsibility and blame onto her husband because her husband had an infidelity with consequences. Bright allows her to go through with things that were harder. If she thought he was committed, and obviously they both care about their sons the thing that's interesting about Tom, Holland and the other young actor Bill Milner as I think it's true for many men. It's not true for me and my father because my father liked auto racing. And so I never got into it. And so this whole idea of when we talk about sports, we're really talking about how much we love each other is not a thing in my household. But I do believe that many men have trouble being emotional with one another and they do use things like talking about winning soccer game as a stand in for saying. I love you. And I respect you. And in fact, we'll see that. And the way that Tom Holland's Eddy. Sometimes like he calls after he knows what's going on. Mom is stairs. Throwing I wanna talk about the score. I talk about mom, and then I'm going to go back to talking about the score. Because that's where I'm comfortable men. Art, speaking zero typically, they're not comfortable talking about their emotions and lock is obviously very compartmentalized very detached from them. We can see that he's going through them. It's helpful because we're in the car with him looking at this incredible internal actor who can give us that performance that we had a lesser actor. We might not believe that he's David by what he's doing as is. But to me, it's incredibly moving to see him talk sports with his son knowing that he's really trying to say, I wanna come home with you..

"And I think that adds to the tension because I'm waiting for something really horrible to be revealed from this character from Tom Hardy's here. Locked because he is so called like at one point this woman who's giving birth to his child is like I love you just say he's like, but I don't love you. So he's like Spock here. He is so cold in logical. Yeah. I mean, we can see from Hardee's performance is not that he's unfeeling. That's that. He is working very hard to be a site manager, you know, his job, and he's apparently paid very well because he's driving really nice car is to take on these big construction projects. He is supposed to be there in the morning for that construction site to oversee the most massive concrete. Pour that's ever occurred in England outside of a nuclear silo, or I think they mentioned something else. But it requires a mind that is not going to flip out when things go wrong to hold a job like that. And he's. Trying to do that with all things in his life. And the biggest compliment I could give this film is that it makes a concrete. Pour super interesting like anything s to do this concrete board. I'm absorbed by oh, no, they got five instead of say, I don't even know what that me. But I'm on the edge of my seat. Agreed. The fact that they're able to speak in that terminology that I have no idea what they're talking about. But they make me care about. It is impressive. You never see the concrete. You're never leaving the car. But man, they make it relatable. Yeah. It's eleven minutes before we even know who he's going towards we've had some indication. There are thirty five phone calls in this movie. And the first one is Beth in where she mentions doctors and nurses. We know that he's going to what we might even think is his wife who's having a medical procedure ninety minutes in traffic. But it will be eleven minutes before we know that he's going to deal with this child in between. We see that. He's. Making an incredibly transformative probably negative decision in his life with his work that he is going to get fired because he is not going to be there at the crucial point. And he's doling out responsibility to this Irishman named Donal who I don't think he's qualified for it. And he doesn't either. Yeah. To the point where tells doddle notch take a call from Gareth who I guess is in charge of the whole site. So they can't even stop Donald from doing what he's being told to do by lock the big question. I have I know the answer..

"It is I suppose the way I did. Which is I didn't know anything other than it was set in a car and critics told me that Tom hardy is really good. And I was halfway there. I had forgotten. Jacob told me it was all in a car knew nothing. I think knowing that is in a car isn't assessing. I think an expectation needs to be sets that the movie isn't going to start when he gets somewhere. This is the movie I think that was helpful when that clicked for me to not be asking. When is he getting out? Yeah. And realtime movies are cool. I mean, we talked about it with before sunset before sunrise was broken with editing, but before sunset actually, the eighty minutes that they were talking to each other was exactly as it was Hitchcock tried to create this allusion with rope. The mount of time it takes to go from Birmingham. Ham to London is this eighty minutes, and it cheats, because I thought it was real time, but a football game, or as we call it soccer is ninety minutes have. And when the beginning of this movie starts the soccer game hasn't happened. And by the end of this movie, eighty minutes later, it's completely over. It's one no soccer game. Goes that fast your minimum of two hours in a soccer. All right. That's what I did find a little bit confusing because. Yeah, he says he's ninety minutes away. The film is under ninety minutes. I guess he's not quite at the hospital by the end of it. But I did keep thinking time had passed. You know, you'll get these moments where he's not talking to anyone there are few of and just driving. I'm like, okay is fifteen minutes past. But I guess it's supposed to be more or less real time. And we are putting this together. You may not even know that this is England. And you know, when the first shots he's getting in to the right side of the car to drive. And so I'm like, oh, right. And then we see this massive construction site. They do have. One to stab wishing shot at really metaphorical. It's this base of this future. High rise something great is going to be built here. And what does it mean that he is taking off his work boots and driving away from it? And we have the inciting incident really within the first couple of minutes is sitting at a traffic light. You'll notice his blinkers signaling left. And then all of a sudden there's these angry yellow headlights from a truck behind him honking their horn. And he impulsively just decides to flip it and go, right? I wouldn't call that impulsive. I've been there the hard decision. You're finally giving into a decision. You may not want to think, you know, what you're doing that the last minute, you change your mind, maybe it isn't impulse. But it's not like all of a sudden, he's just going. He's been wrestling with this. That's what I get out of his cursing as he goes in the more. I learn about it. This is what he feels. He should do. He just knows the cost of this is high. We're going to ask why does it? I mean that is really I think. The movie will take at least half its Runtime to set up why he might go. But it's worth pointing out. He was going to go in that other direction presumably to home, and then that Hong cap, and I've just going to say that I think that Hong represents his father. He will ultimately create an imaginary conversation with a father in the back seat. And it was that needle. We'll find out that really is the driving force that he's running away from and choosing actively to be different than this is the story of a man trying to undo a legacy and be better than the man that didn't raise him lock. It is a surname that was meant to reference if you know philosophers the rationalist John Locke, and this is going to be a very rational logical com. Character at another thing that is highly unusual about this movie more radical than the fact that adult takes place in the car is this is a character. That is almost never going to lose their temper. They're never going to kill anyone. They're never going to lose it and have fights you think withdraw. Amazon it's usually about screaming not this drum..

"And then once that was on Tom hardy is back in action and the other actors were in a hotel with a microphone, and they would call in at the right times interact, but you're seeing a live performance. This is like filming live theater than I feel that they lost some of that for a movie that takes place all pretty much inside of a car. They do some great things visually with the use of streaking lights. And I couple times thought I saw a cigarette burn. I'm like why? When I see a cigarette burn on a Blu Ray. And it's just the streaking lights went in such a way that looked kind of like bird hole in the image. Yeah. The cinematographer said he didn't. Want the audiences to feel they were in the car? He wanted it to feel like a spaceship or more to the point the medically like a guy just drifting off into the unknown that he was just falling away from his life. And it's not like there's crazy driving and things threes in why specifically focused on the Matthew mcconaughey car ads is because it was Matthew, mcconaughey. Hey, talking about life, not driving crazy not doing anything. But then when he was done he got out of the Infinity a here with the colorful lights and the use of reflection, and the fact that it is visually stimulating, and the fact that he is driving a BMW the whole time. That's where the car ad came into me by the end of the shoot they had this movie in sixteen different takes. He had done it sixteen different times. And then they took the best moments from all of it. It was really the editor's job in. And I can't imagine what that would have been like to go and find the version from all of those two sent the Cise and tell the story and. Why if this was all taken like that the editing makes it not feel like a single take? You know, it just feels like a regular movie, which for movie taking place at a car, if you like a regular movie as actually a plus I think you always need to do those tricks one hundred twenty seven hours cheated by having flashbacks the see is pretty big and open water. I think you always wanna find a way to keep people visually engaged, even though this is a movie about dialogue and about. Yeah. Talking on the phone. Actually, why don't we tell them what it's about Arnie give them the plot. And we'll discuss lock Tom hardy plays. I've unlock a construction form in of the night before the biggest cement job of his life. But now he's driving away from his home in Birmingham to London. See seven months before I've had a one night stand with Bethune his secretary on a construction job in corden. Now, she's giving birth prematurely. Ivan was raised without a father in his life. And though he knows it will destroy his life. He drives to London to be there. When his child is born on the road. He juggles phone. Calls. He tries to make sure the concrete pour. The next morning goes off as planned even after he's been fired for his job for leaving town. He also breaks the news to his wife who decides one time cheating too, many and tells him not to come home. But the movie ends with Beth in calling lock and letting him hear the sounds of his healthy child lock pulls over overcome with emotion. But says he'll be there soon as credits. Roll. I mean, this isn't a plot movie. So that's the big of it. I think if the mystery we see a guy get in the car drive away from everything in his life. That means something. Why would he do it? What's he driving towards and what's driving him to do it? But it's a character study mystery like do not watch the trailer. Again, intense thriller. I see this construction guy leaving the site driving away leaving his family, Mike is he terrorist. He plant a bomb at the construction site. What's going to be revealed here? It's a mystery. But man that trailer really set me up for something that this film isn't. Yeah. And that's film advertising. Do you have wanted to see a movie if it was just about a guy trying to make ride on pregnant woman saying I struggled by the end of this film because it had given me different expectations. And I had reset. And reevaluate everything the best way to see..
"locke" Discussed on Now Playing - The Movie Review Podcast
"So it has a dramatic element. It's definitely a movie that pushes state them more into showing his acting chops which is kind of interesting because he's not usually asked to do that. But he will kick guy's ass in the streets and do the state them kinds of things. That sounds interesting as I like, stay calm, usually. Yeah. I mean, it's not awful. But it's just not convincing. The thing that lock has that's in common with this. It's about a guy that wants to do the right thing very badly. In lock I believe the guy and redemption, it just seemed phony when state is handing out pizzas to homeless people. But I think night wanted to do something quickly. This is apparently a true story. I don't know a whole lot about it. They didn't speak to it. But something like the plot of this story happened guy walked away from his life because he wanted to atone for something that happened. I don't know if he gave his life rights away. They didn't base it enough for them to make that credit. But it does get mentioned in the commentary of this movie that this has some basis in reality. They asked the guy what did you think of the movie, and he says, well, I'm not Welsh Tom hardy will use a Welsh accent? And that was the only comment that he had is that what that is. I started like is he doing an Irish thing? What's going on with his voice? Yeah, wales. Okay. I a lot of English accents all sound the same to me. And so I just thought maybe this is how Tom hardy really talks. Oh, no, this one sounds very different to me. Yeah. There is a lot of different dialects. And what they said was they wanted to find one that wasn't harsh not to be too rude. But sometimes spent some time in London. Yeah. I can think of certain areas where do subtitles. I don't understand what you're saying. And this is a movie about a man that is struggling to become do the right thing lose his temper, we need to have a voice that matches that and they decided that Welsh people have the nicest speaking voice, I guess, or at least the most calm, soothing. And they didn't have a lot for this movie. I think it was under two million budget. They had two cars BMW loan them. They did not get product placement. There was no kickback. They had two weeks. That's funny. Because honestly feeling was do you remember the Infinity ads? Matthew, mcconaughey in them? This feels like and eighty minute one of those I figured I've actually watched the whole credits for a giant BMW Lok, then they failed. If you think this feels like a commercial, they did not get money from the cars, and it really isn't about the car. They had two cars one to do the exterior shots. And then one is to do the rig they filmed this movie like a play Tom hardy would get into a car. This. Mm w it would be dragged by a truck through actual streets. Not choreographed traffic, not CGI or blue screen. Three cameras were positioned to follow him at all times. And he would do the whole script in one blow they'd have to pull over because they needed to change memory cards on the cameras. So every thirty minutes there like let's just pull to the side here..

"And most of the time it's a good thing. I mean, most of the comparisons you'd make or is to. Young Brando or young deniro, Sean pin or Nick cage is I on venom. Yeah. Occasionally, he can be like a really terrible Picard clone. The worst Star Trek moody, or that Dane voice in dark. Knight rises is still quite horrible. Fep Baid ways is amazing. It is something. But I've not sure what his future will be. It could be that. He could implode like cage. But right now, I still feel like he has a lot of credibility, particularly when it comes to period piece, dramas and thrillers. I do think that he's angry young man and very actor actively and able to physically transform and you give them the right raw. Usually you want the movie to be raw. I don't know if he'd worked in a cuddly romantic comedy, but he's actually kinda cuddly in this movie. We'll talk about it. But when you say Tom hardy, I think he works best in movies where he's really going to go to motion depths. That's my thinking of him. But I always do think when he does go commercial when he is doing pain or Mad Max, which is an art film in the guise of popular cinema. And I'd never really got the thing with him though, you know, having seen him in a lot of movies in the early two thousands. We reviewed him in Star Trek. Nemesis. That's not fair. Let's talk about inception tinker tailor soldier spy warrior, sucker punch rock. And I'm saying you can't pull out there. Worse things on the resume and say, that's what they are. I'm not pulling up the worst things on his resume pulling out the movies. I saw no, well, then you are seeing them at their worst things you need to see your like Brunson. And I know you saw inception warrior you done Kirk. I mean, these are the things that you can go to and say, yeah, I see the actor not the guy getting the paycheck. Yeah. And I liked inception a lot, but he didn't stand out to me in that movie. Oh, okay. I remember a different. I'd have to go back to listen to the conversation to see if he did at the time. But as I recall when he ended up in dark Knight rises, I'm like who was he in his action. There was a guy named Tom hardy and inception. I didn't remember him. And now, I know who he is very well because he is name. But that doesn't mean that I see everything he does even aware of. Everything he does when I looked him up on IMDB. I was like, wow. There's a lot of movies here. I've not heard of one of which was called lock. But that's where you're going to see the good work is what I'm going to argue. I mean, if you're not seeing the smaller edgier stuff. Yeah. This guy will be the doofus from venom and that would be a real tragedy and from venom too. I have a feeling now the other name that we have to bring up here the one that is probably less known is Stephen night, but he is an Oscar nominated screenwriter whose best films tend to be thrillers that focus on the immigrant experience. Probably one. I'm guessing both of you saw was eastern promises. It's what made me really excited about this movie. I love eastern promises. I consider that kind of a Kronenbourg Vigo Mortenson Douala g with history of violence, and I like both films a lot. But he also he got his Oscar nomination for dirty pretty things a great film about immigrants working at a hotel. That stumble upon a murderer. And it really was very good. Audrey tattoo..

"I don't wanna say you could never do this as a movie you can never do this as a play. But yeah, I think when you have something more intimate like this to be in a small theater with the person really there. I think for that art form, it's just a. Better delivery system for this kind of film. Here's my theory on it. I believe that. When we go to see stage work, it is about being as close as we can to the performer. But when we sit down to watch a movie it's about being teleported somewhere else. We don't want that same experience with the scream because one they're not there. We're never going to get that close. And this is a movie that's going to remind you you're sitting in a chair the whole time. I mean, you will reflect on the fact he's not moving you're not moving not only is this a one man show, but it's part of this recent trend of films where it's about stationary locations. Claustrophobia buried Ryan Reynolds got put under ground Colin Farrell in a phone booth or Franko stuck in a canyon for a hundred and twenty seven hours. I've never seen buried. I understand. That's kind of a one man show too though. I mean, all these things are basically a character in a confined location. Open water, even where the people were bobbing up and down with the sharks cube. I mean is rare that this movie is both it is both. One man having a dialogue. And again, I think Eddie Murphy counts. Spalding Gray's, a monologue est who made swimming came Bodey ah. There are many I guess you could call them concert films where people just tell you a monologue telephone. Did you ever see that one Arne? It was a Whoopie Goldberg film in the eighties where she is a homeless person that wanders in and starts calling people on the telephone making prank phone calls. Never saw sense like a prototype for jerky, boys. It goes dark at the end. I'll never forget what it does at the end. But there is an appeal about seeing someone you like just have free range to take you on path. And then we have this other thing where it is. Let's deal with the fact that we are not going to be able to move out of this location that in this case, it's all Tom hardy, and it's all a BMW now Tom hardy fan, I think we're all on the same page that he was becoming a thing at this point..

"I wanna talk about it. There was that logo a twenty four. And definitely I think lock is a movie unlike probably many films most people have seen starting with the fact that it is in fact, Tom hardy and all Tom hardy. Did you guys know that this movie was about one guy dry? Ving car for eighty minutes. I didn't know anything about this film when it was mentioned that we're doing lock I had a look it up. I saw that description Duda car talking to people with his hands free set. And I think you might have mentioned that Jacob. I knew nothing about this film. And sometimes I love that feeling of just going into something completely unknown. And I didn't even watch trailers. I wanted to go in unknown. Then when I watched the film for about five minutes, something clicked where I'm like, somebody told me he never gets out of the car. I did watch trailer. That's the only real, you know, I read at two cents description, and then I watched the trailer set up the wrong expectations. I'll say that right now that trailer says this is thriller. So I'll talk about it. As we go through the film like all the crazy theories. I had of what was going on. Because I was told this is the thriller of the year. I love the poster because it's tight enough on Tom hardy, and there's things streaking across the windshield. You might confuse it for the Italian job or something there. Like intense power. How was expecting something like that the two movies that came to mind for me were night crawler and drive from the poster? And in fact, when I started this movie and Marjorie, and I had watched drive together. She's like, oh is this going to be like the Ryan Gosling film? I'm like, no, I think there's going to be different had like ten minutes, which is like is he going to be in the car the whole movie that she went to bed. Oh, she didn't make it. Okay. So there's one vote of no one man shows how many movies have you seen where it's a guy talking to for the whole the actual linked. I can think of a few. I mean, I feel like Hardie is almost done this before. Now, there's other people and he interacts, but if you've seen Bronson I feel like that is almost all about Hardee's performance. Even though there are other actors there I'm talking about really stripping down. Probably the most popular Eddie Murphy. Right. Yeah. The standard routines rawal delirious. Those are just stand up routines. I wouldn't consider those movie movies. The closest I could think of when I gave this some day gang as castaway, and even that had more people at the beginning and the end, but Tom Hanks and a volleyball for most of the movie was the closest I could come. I've seen a lot of one man shows on stage. You know, I love Patrick Stewart's one man performance of Scrooge. And a lot of stage performances. I see are one or two people. You know this. Movie as I'm watching it. I'm like this should be stage. Play easily could be stage play could or should. Yes. Should they should because I'd love the intimacy of the proclamation with the actor. And why do you feel like that's not going to happen in a movie? There's just something about the physical dislocation and the immediacy and having to do it all in one take on stage versus being able to have the multiple takes. I just pictured this as one person onstage within various voices interacting with them. And that it would be a very intimate experience that I would work very well in some of those smaller New York playhouses, I mean, even going to link ladders before trilogy that could almost be a two person stage play..

Ray we trust because Sean a two for here choosing the patriot level where he could pick a movie for us to review, and wow, polar opposites, I think the only thing they have in common is both speak English. We went from face off to lock. Yeah. Did Sean give any reason why he picked this? He's a big Tom hardy fan had apparently there's a TV series. I've not heard of Tom hardy TV series called taboo. Yep. He was a big fan of taboo, Stephen Knight. Who wrote and directed? This was a part of that show. He wrote the screenplays apparently all this stuff means something to Stuart. And so he chose the phone because he seen it three times. And he still doesn't know of its green red arrow forum. He loves hardy. He loves the Indy. Feeling of the film. But is there any there there, or is he just admiring how it was filmed? Does hardy carry the film strongly enough to get a recommend? He's looking to us to talk it through and see what we think. But I love this. Because we've been talking about this on social media a little bit. I love the fact that he's going to hear us discuss it and then make his own decision. We could all recommend it. We could all not recommend it. But the real important thing is the conversation. We have as we walk along that path to get there. And that's really cool to me. Okay. So last week with face off. It was a guilty pleasure of movie he called bad that he really loved. And this is a movie where he hasn't decided what it means to him it made an impression, and yeah, I think some of our best films are just some of the most interesting films are ones where you can have debates weeks months years later and still wonder what does it all hold lock is a film that I have remembered since I saw it back it came into America Wittig came on DVD. I saw it, you know, probably about. Four years ago. And it was because it got all of these glowing reviews, he got an acting prize from the film critics and it was on this label. It's at least by eight twenty four the most interesting film distributors. We've got anymore now that Weinstein's gone and Lionsgate makes grab I didn't know eight twenty four when back that far I think this came out in two thousand fourteen. Yeah, they would have just started their roster. So these are the films I would have already seen spring breakers under the skin a most violent year tusk bling ring. In a me. I saw them all in theaters. It wasn't like at first. I was like I got to see everything these guys do, but it started become a pattern before all of these interesting movies that had emerged going. God. Have you seen that?.

"These are legitimate uses of the word freedom. John Locke is very clear, he's not referring to freedom in that sense. The kind of freedom that we have by nature is not being legitimately subject to the will of another person or or other groups of human beings. Think about it. This way lock is telling us that we can discern through reason that no human being is born with the title to rule over another. And no human being is born to serve another. We're not born with the duty to serve were not born with titles to rule fats. Freedom. Now, I said it's a narrow sense, but it's a profound sense. And it's it's rich with political significance. But it doesn't refer to absolute freedom complete freedom as as critics of the liberal tradition. Come to come to say it does. So thinking of doing something, and I'm worried I'm going to be judged for it. Yes. So those social norms constrain my choice. They don't consider. It's not the right. You know, what the right word is there. But a fact it'll affect choices. Just to take a very modest example. I'm going to a funeral. And I guess I'd not to go in my gym clothes decide to put on a a suit. I I'm free to put on free to go in my gym clothes. Yes. I choose not to because I think is quote inappropriate. Yeah. That social norm. I assume lock would not would not call a restriction of my freedom. Yes. Who we should be careful here in it is in a sense a restriction of your freedom, the guilt trips that are impairments impose upon us. Or we as children in post fun. Our parents those are constraints on people's freedom for sure, but here's the important distinction. That was not the form of freedom that John Locke believed. It was the government's job to protect other words. Cr- postmodern critics, for example, we'll talk. About enslavement to social norms. We should not deny that social norms can rain us in Pimas down. Shaq'll us already in the middle of the nineteenth century, John Locke, and and Tocqueville a little bit earlier are making this point about the power of public opinion. Some and social norms to to limit us. We need to acknowledge it. It's true. But lock locks teaching is that kind of unfreedom and the kind of unfreedom you experience in your own ability to fly the clouds and beyond is not the kind of freedom. The state is designed to protect or achieve to to able you to achieve the form of protection that the that the state grants to prevent you from being subject to the the will another and here, I suppose, I need to clarify. We'll not in the sense of expressing an opinion or making a judgment that you dislike or deplore will in the sense of forcing you. The threat of in the face of violence with the threat of violence to act or to refrain from acting as a very important distinction. And and I think I mean, you can use words anyway, like as long as up to a point as long as you make it clear what you mean by them. And I think that's a that particular distinction just made extremely important. And guess it's it's the reason I call myself often a classical liberal media liberal in the older sense of the word by that. I'm talking about what I think is the correct role the state, and when I talk about that correct role. I will often say I want a a minimal state with personal responsibility and by minimal. I mean, I have no problem. I'm not amicus. I have no problem with government, providing certain legal restrictions regulations courts police and so on. And that's everything else is free to happen through emergent ways that just not through the power of the legislature or sovereign. And so yes, it's okay that there are many things we don't like about life and use drugs is an example. I don't take drugs of the recreational kind. But I think we should be free to make that choice for self..
