"Else has changed from. Your perspective is being a user in september in december and january and february over that time in terms of the way people are using clubhouse aside from the volume. Yeah back in september up until november. I you could if you were in a room you kind of expect people to jump out just random people who are very interesting and now it's becoming harder to find those interesting conversations just Serendipitous louis and i think these are serendipity has moved into clubs Which which is a good thing. You're able to you know nano down in silo on people that you are interested in meeting and make that Interaction happened within clubs. But i do miss the time where you know. We just opened a rule within random celebrity drops in and out and you have the opportunity to interact with like musicians or artists and know that type of interaction doesn't happen bus anymore. It's even just in my brief time using clubhouse things have changed a little bit. We have this this Analogy of a room and it depends on which way the chairs are facing Are are there are. There are a couple chairs on stage and then facing an audience with lots of chairs or is it a like a circle and it seems like there are some there are some small rooms where it still in a circle and everybody really interacts and people drop it it out but for the but i would say even over the last five or six weeks. It seems like it's really changed significantly where there's a lot more stage focused rooms where it's about the high profile people. The people that followers maybe celebrities really talking to the room and then occasionally brings up on stage whereas it seems to me. They're still out there. But there's there's not as high a proportion of the types of rooms where it's just about everybody getting together and talking. Yeah i've certainly seen that as well and get a maybe that's a good From the point of monetization where creators can monetize and kabul certainly wants that You know for creators to be able to monetize their show on but for me. That is really unfortunate. Because mom i now have to work harder to find people to interact with and jining clubhouse like I think the best way to have a to have a good experience on clubhouse like one must have a clear like our goal with like what they're looking out of their couples experience for me. It's very simple. It is to substitute social activity. you know with the pandemic like i was not going out does not hang out with friends and so i saw clubhouse is a way to meet interesting people and you're just lifted that i didn't wanna know grotesque. I didn't have the intention of going in and immediately monetize ing and so just staying true to my intention has been difficult.

Spring Training 2021: MLB's Plan To Prevent Outbreaks

"Jeff. What's the plan around health and safety to get to something resembling normal in spring training. I mean there's a hundred page document that lays out an extremely granular fashion. What baseball is trying to do to prevent outbreaks and you remember pablo. We talked about last year. We saw with the miami marlins with saint louis. Cardinals teams are susceptible to that. I will say a very positive thing. That happened already is major league. Baseball's first round of intake testing where they had four thousand three hundred thirty six tests. They didn't give the number of tests subjects but among those tests only thirteen came back positive. It's a very very small number. If there is an outbreak pablo it would not surprise me at all considering the way that people at spring training or around one. Another so much but They are abiding by distancing protocols. They're limiting the number of players. Nobody's allowed to go out. And the hope is that over time as players get vaccinated that will change but for the time being. It's very similar to the way that they operated toward the end of last season.

Can Liverpool Snap Their Slump?

"Liverpool coming off a result midweek in the champions league thought when we focus on their league form not so great. They've lost three straight for merely outscored eight to two in those matches. Stevie the league form not good but can we throw it out the window based on what you saw. Mid week. Leipzig to be honest. I'm gonna base on scene from evan. Rather than what. I've seen from liverpool. I think we know liverpool. Golden played good football. Hopefully they're going to create. The question is what we take chances. And kinda and that's been their mantra. I think this is over. Evan up until i go a bed the smaller and looked and looked to see what had been said for months. You'll autobahn and use a kind of changed my opinion because i was very comfortable when i went to bed. Before the fact that culvert loons black. You've got allenbach. You got hamas who. I think we'll play as well. So they've kind of a as well as liverpool getting a little bit of a kick from winning against light shake evans going to get a little spot as well for most three at the same time. I don't think is going to be an awful thing. Liverpool will take it a business. You mentioned what carlo ancelotti said. You're in club downplayed this earlier but the reverse fixture of this is where virgil van. Dyke got hurt. We'll liverpool's players be thinking about that. Is that at all a factor in this absolutely not liverpool of other things to worry about right now with those vendettas. And when you stop doing that that affects your game when you start worrying about getting a kick it somebody or gone around and tried to get one on the that's going to affect you as you said liverpool too many other problems where they can. They can do things so i i don't think will have any whatsoever correct. Speaking those other liverpool problems basically been a coin flip over the last couple of months which liverpool we get and it's not really between good and bad. it's between feast and famine and look. There's a clear fight for the top four here between a few teams what one of which up until a couple of games ago look it might be able to make still be but clearly live for sure. I'm not going to catch. Set has been questioned whether anybody will catch them but settling from where pearl are so. There's a clear fight for the top. Four and i think they'll be buoyed by their performance and mid week but i'm with stevia. Initially islanders probably going combat but he's lacking much shoppers. Rodriguez is a talent. But he's not particularly away from home. A place like lever put and going to get the ball here because everton do that home in a way. They often the lawyers for as what liver poke can do with an ev. You know the such a hard team to read it. Belet lasted in a sense. Have lost some crazy games as she are still up there. Everyone had i think the three games in hand up until a week or ten days ago and then they lost home to fill them the loss home to set these kind of expected. The hong end then brushed aside. But i could see lever. Pull getting a result here purely going to dominate the game. And i think eventually it will break down. Of course they're gonna watch learn these pace and behind running the johnson. That's a weak point for liverpool at the moment. But i just feel with us. Top four limited as real. Fight that lever pill get the job done here and could run together to get themselves in their shock. Everton haven't beaten liverpool since two thousand ten have one at anfield since one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. This feels like as good a chance chances. They're going to get ride. No all records falling as far as liverpool is concerned in particular over recent weeks. That format downfield. Now i'm different from the voice. I'm sitting around the fence but leaning everton. I just feel as good. A result was against rb leipzig. Maybe a little bit expected especially given i felt. I thought i'd be like coming into this. A little bit light up front and maybe not threatening liverpool anywhere near as much as you would thought but with covid louis coming back. In particular that make centre-half paramount liverpool will be relying on on henderson. I just feel about their goals for forever time here and as a see i'm sitting on the inside but leading everton i just don't see a liverpool win.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Candles with Louis Hotchkiss

"Has been like the most hotly anticipated episode for a long time because we are very big. Candle aficionados and our an our listeners are as well i have to ask you. How did you become the candle man. well for me Well thank you for having me first of all i'm really excited about this also I think it was until you guys contacted me. I didn't realize that i was an expert at anything. And then i had to think about it for a while but i started making candles and Kind of By accident We had started a product line Added started to do pretty well and We decided to add some candles to its fragrance items to it and that started to do very well and i asked a friend to make them for me and The friend was met was at that time. He was a key manufacturer of candles for estee lauder And our line started to take off pretty well for him and one day he came to me and he said hey louis. I've got some bad news. I have a project. That's probably gonna take me seven months to complete. So i won't be able to pull your candles anymore and so i said oh. Wow you know. What am i going to do here. And i asked him. What am i going to do. His name was jose was a an originally from italy and he said well. Why don't you come down to my place every day for like the next month and we will make all these candles together. And i'll teach you everything i know. So every drive to his place. We'd make our candles. I'd make the st lauder candles and it turned out to be fantastic experience I realized that at lunch every day. It's okay it's time to take a break and we would go into his kitchen in the place and we make pasta. Have a glass of wine. Finish it up with an espresso and a piece of chocolate. And i thought well i could get into this making. I want to hang out with the catch career scratch. That's how i kind of got into it and then we started to. He taught me a certain technique Added some of our own Personality to that and it just kind of took off from there and never stopped making candles since we have not stop making candles since this year will probably make for half a million candles. Oh my god and this is both for your own line kobo and also for brands which we cannot name because they don't want people to know not that bad but you know you are like let's say i am. You know insert famous brand here. They're not making their like. If i'm a big brand and i don't even use one because i don't want to mislead people but they don't necessarily make their own candles. They go to an expert. Who makes the best candles in the world. you know. So they'll go to you and you'll make their candles. That is correct. That is okay. Got most of the main candle brand's in the world. Don't actually make their own candles. What that's i have to say. That is really confusing. And i realize you're not gonna like namedrop. But why won't some of these big catamarans make thrown kanter. That's super confusing to me. I get like a fashion brand. Might not because it's like wide away. They want to put millions of dollars until like making a candle. That's going to sit at their cashier point and be like oh we also have this scandal you know but why would a big fat candle brand not make their own candles. Probably because the but most of their efforts into marketing and manufacturing is a whole nother process which requires a lot of energy and a lot of attention and a lot of the brands have developed through marketing campaigns so they might manufacture other products. They've they've probably do They might have some body care that they include in their line and they don't necessarily have the expertise or the energy to create all of these different areas for themselves. Got god is it safe to say making a candles way. More complicated than like mixing up a body lotion There's definitely different elements. Because you've got heat involved you've got you've got All these different vessels than different times so for example for us. Each different vessel requires the different wick. So you've you've probably you've probably had some candles that That you don't burn all the way to the to the ends of the glass for example. Yeah oh we're gonna get to some of those questions area in the different size. You've got the different. You've got the height the width the materials. The fragrance you have all those elements in In lotions as well lotions can be complicated as well. Because you have preservatives systems That you're putting into lotions. Also so i wouldn't say that It's much more complicated but It takes a lot more time to manufacture. Candle

"Let's just start with a recap so far. We have covered. How him hubs best friend. Betsy furrier ended up murdered with fifty five stab wounds. Only five days after making pam hop her life insurance beneficiary. That's free is husband. Russ was tried for her murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after spending almost four years in prison. He successfully appealed for a new trial and was acquitted of all charges. I discussed the corruption ineptitude and basically the overall nefarious -ness of the police and prosecution when it came to his case. I mean seriously guys if there is this case doesn't make your blood boil. I don't even know what to tell you. I don't know what well it is trifling because this case is so complex with multiple ongoing arcs. We are actually going to backtrack a little bit for part three back to rest free first trial. If you recall right before russ's first trial which began on november eighteenth. Twenty thirteen police. Investigators interviewed pam multiple times. Because obviously she was the last person to see. Betsy makes sense. Police were aware of the life insurance policy change and questioned her about it a couple times. She was always immediately defensive and she ended up bringing up her mother. Shirley newman using her almost as defense as to why she had no motive for money. So here's a clip of pam hop from a july of twenty thirteen pretrial interview with police to moscow. My mom got an accident in and home. I really hate to say it wanted mind. My were half a million that i get when she dies. My mom is dementia. Doesn't have the time now. I am ledge person. But if i really wanted money wasn't easier way than trying to combat somebody gets saying shirley newman pam seventy eight year. Old mother died just four months after this interview on october. Thirty first of two thousand thirteen evening. Just two and a half weeks before russ ferreira's first trial. She had fallen off the railing from her third floor. Apartment in an upscale gated assisted living facility. There had been no witnesses and police deemed it an accident. Let's break down what happened. Shirley's husband and pam's father died in the year. Two thousand when she became unable to care for herself pam and her three siblings work together to get surely into the lake view. Park independent senior living community in fenton missouri. Pam would frequently visit her during the day on october. Twenty ninth twenty. Thirteen surely had a doctor's appointment pam transported her to the appointment and then surely spent the night at her house. Spending time with pam's family the next day. Roughly five pm pam and shirley arrived back at lake park pam instructed the facility staff not to expect her mom for either dinner or breakfast. She then left the next day on halloween at two thirty pm a housekeeper through surely newman dead. Underneath her third-floor balcony there was damage to the railing and she had fallen to her death after two police investigations. The saint louis county medical examiner's office deemed shirley newman's death as an accident. Shirley had died from blunt trauma to the chest from the fall and the medical examiner also found point eight four micrograms of zoll padam generic ambien in her blood. That's more than eight times. What someone her age and size should be taking but still it was ruled an accident. Even though a structural engineer said that there was absolutely zero away zero way. A woman of shirley newman's weight and height could've damage the six individual pieces of railing. Pam hop was the last person to see shirley alive. Yes she was never interviewed her siblings however had been even though they weren't even local to the area or present and hadn't seen their mother in quite a while in his first trial russ was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Just a few weeks later. Shirley newman's death and pam's presence was never investigated and never considered moving on to january twenty fourteen as we talked about in part to the saint.

States Can Forgive Unemployment Overpayments, But Missouri Demands People Pay Up

"Passed in December gave states the power to forgive, overpaid federal unemployment benefits. Most states are taking them up on that. But Missouri is not. Here's Corrin rough from ST Louis Public radio. In the middle of December. Sandra Griffin's on new message pop up and her online unemployment account. You were overpaid by no fault of your own. That's what the letter states by no fault of your own. And you are required to pay it back. The message said she owed the Missouri Department of Labor nearly $8000. That's money. Griffin says she already spent on bills after the Corona virus pandemic hit and she lost her job teaching art programs in ST Louis schools. Normally she counts on summer school to make most of her income. But there was no clear plan for schools to reopen so her employer encouraged her to file for unemployment. Turns out people who work for educational institutions are eligible for unemployment over the summer, when most teachers air off, So they were saying that all the months that I collected over the summer I was ineligible to collect those, although they had reassured me during the summer during phone calls. That everything was fine, so there was a contradiction there and what's going on. Griffin filed an appeal. But since the system is backed up, her hearing isn't for another six months. In the meantime, she doesn't have to pay anything. More than 46,000. Missourians have also gotten letters demanding repayment. The state says it paid out more than $150 million last year to people who would later determined were eligible for the money. Lawmakers from both parties have been calling on Governor Mike Person to forgive the overpayments that don't involve fraud about 97% of cases. But person told reporters earlier this month that a state law requires collection of over payments and he doesn't plan to override it. There was mistake's made. There's no doubt about that. At the end of the day. I think there is a responsibility is taxpayersmoney. If somebody got more money they should have got you should ask for it back and to say, you know you all that to the fact that you don't know what to me, but to the people who paid it. Missouri State representative Lakisha Bosley, Democrat from ST Louis, says persons reasoning doesn't add up. The bulk of the overpaid funds are from new federal programs, and the relief package from December gave states the ability to wave over payments. So Bosley filed a bill earlier this month that would keep the state from collecting overpaid federal benefits for non fraud cases during times of crisis. Like the pandemic, asking people to pay back 1000 21,000 even $200. It's just too far and it's too much and now you're crushing their hopes that things will go back to normal and that they can rely on the government to help in step in when they need it. Alexa Tapia is with the workers rights think tank National Employment Law project. Even states that she says have better systems are struggling to keep up with the influx of first time filers, new federal programs and overpayments like Missouri. Kentucky also has a state law requiring collection of overpaid benefits. Lawmakers in the governor's office are still working out how to grant waivers. But Tabby says most other states like Illinois and Colorado are already starting to forgive overpayments, She says. That's because there's no incentive to go after the money. It actually creates more work for the states to collect that money. And of course, they do have that discretion to do so, But it would harm their local economy is and their citizens so they should be trying to uplift at this time, and she says overpayment bills disproportionately impact people of color. Equity and economic recovery or reasons more states are forgiving overpayments. Tapia worries that states like Missouri will spend more energy fighting appeals thing getting payments out to people who are still waiting on help. For NPR News. I'm Corin rough in ST Louis.

But person told reporters earlier this month that a state law requires collection of over payments and he doesn't plan to override it. There was mistake's made. There's no doubt about that. But at the end of the day, I think there is a responsibility is taxpayersmoney. If somebody got more money they should have got you should ask for it back and to say, you know, you owe that to the fact that you don't know what to me, but to the people who paid it. Missouri State representative Lakisha Bosley, Democrat from ST Louis, says persons reasoning doesn't add up. The bulk of the overpaid funds are from new federal programs, and the relief package from December gave states the ability to wave over payments. So Bosley filed a bill earlier this month that would keep the state from collecting overpaid federal benefits for non fraud cases during times of crisis like the pandemic, asking people to pay back 1000 21,000 even $200 It's just too far and it's too much and now you're crushing their hopes that things will go back to normal and that they can rely on the government to help in step in when they needed. Alexa Tapia is with the workers rights think tank National employment Law project. Even states that she says have better systems are struggling to keep up with the influx of first time filers, new federal programs and overpayments. Like Missouri. Kentucky also has a state law requiring collection of overpaid benefits. Lawmakers and the governor's office are still working out how to grant waivers. But Tabby says most other states like Illinois and Colorado are already starting to forgive overpayments. She says. That's because there's no incentive to go after the money. It actually creates more work for the states to collect that money, And of course they do have that discretion to do so, but it would harm Their local economy is and their citizens so they should be trying to uplift at this time, and she says, overpayment bills disproportionately impact people of color, equity and economic recovery or reasons more states are forgiving overpayments. Happier worries that states like Missouri will spend more energy fighting

In some ways, it's a greatest hits package of several different documentaries that I've done because I've done a program about postnatal mental health issues which I think you experienced I've done anorexia. Featured people who struggled with suicidality and self harm all of which have featured in some ways in your life. But I'm wondering when you look back and make sense of what happened. You know what led to those problems to those challenges. How do you begin to understand it? I don't know. I was just at school and I got picked on quite a bit because I studied a lot and so manic name was snoopy porter. So when I get home I try and be cool but overeat to the MMJ is to make pig noises up me when I was sixteen or seventeen saw overeating and sue then. Take food like ice cream up to my bedroom, and then listened to the smiths because obviously that's going to cheer me up. And then I had this sort of awareness of not being pretty or good enough I kind of went through I mean literally my entire life has been like a we ruler co-star people say that all the time by talk my great times, and then suddenly I think I'm useless everything overeating I think was forest and then are called fat. So then I stopped eating altogether and then I ended up in hospital was this how are you this point? I can't remember I, think eighteen I was getting very depressed and then between nineteen and wherever I was overeating under eating and then I think I started.

"Terrible things that had been done the Palestinians by the seconds principally. We should share that land with the Palestinians. They were there same time as we married that with their first. And have blaming them for the shocking deeds of the Nazis for those who would say, well, we are a millennium old religious community and the original. Founding faith that in a way birthed Christianity and Islam and so is it so much to ask that we be allowed to have that territory and protect it against these other nations that may not wish us the best at all very well. Deaths one small thing people lived there before them who owned those houses until those fields and to whom that land belonged. And can't just turf them out the country has to be shared and it will not be a Jewish state anymore but it will be a state where people can live together in peace and I think that that is infinitely preferable. But that's you know it can make people behave badly people get very exercised about this. Doesn't it speak to this idea which you mentioned antisemitism in England or in the UK and there's a sense of almost existential insecurity. The Jewish people feel you know the idea that a population can turn on the born out in some ways by history you know across Europe and that's expressed as a source of failing Jewish people need a space where they can count on one another to protect one another and no longer be victims I think that is probably how a lot of people think. You see in some senses Hitler did win because he changed us all all last Jews have been changed forever. My life has been totally scarred by the Holocaust. I did not suffer personally in nor did my parents nor did any close relatives of violence Nonetheless, the fact of the Holocaust has been a shadow, a tearing shadow across my entire life. And I think nearly all Jews would say that every time I go to train and free time I have Shah which is every day I think about those people am I am told with horror and the PT for them and that makes me more determined that I will never visit such horace. another human being. Do, you think there's anything in the idea that Israel's held to a higher standard. This is something you hear you know that China or Syria are spoken about less than Israel. Yes I do think that is so I think we're an easy target. Sometimes, my printer has a life of its own and suddenly. Does something is it excreting something? It is not if it were I, would hold myself responsible. But it is just recalibrating I think. which is something that maybe we should all do for. It would be nice if we could upgrade our software.

Because there are places and regimes which deserve a opprobrium to the same extent that Israel dozen don't get it and that's because there is something secretly pleasing about oppressing Jews and Jews to be awful and people take pleasure in it.

"Please say yes, needle is moving beautifully. Sprint how you feeling how's your? Energies. All right. I'm just feeling a little bit concerned that we haven't moved about the waste. Let's move of the waste. Elevate the conversation a little bit I mean is this conversation that I'm supposed to be interviewing you or your spurts Supposed to be interviewing. Okay. If that hasn't become clear by now that I may be doing it a bit wrong. Think, it's about time I asserted my authority after old you're listening to ground it with Louis through and not Miriam Margulis. She is my guest. Anyway we probably should elevate the compensation above the waist not least because I was keen to learn more about how her career flourished off. She left university. What happened when she moved to. London. When I left Cambridge in sixty three I didn't know what to do I. Didn't know whether I was going to be an actress so not. And I sold encyclopedias for a few months and I did mock it research going from door to door asking questions and then I got an audition with BBC radio and that really started me isn't actress you've done some acting at Cambridge is that you would part of the famous footlights. It was horrible. I. Hated named night. They didn't like me. They thought I was pushy Jew and I will say got off of the laughs that they felt that I shouldn't got 'cause I was funny. And so I sent which meant that they didn't talk to me off the stage. So I would do my bits and then I would come off stage to be met with silence code stairs and it had a lot but I got over it. It was an Auburn Generous deeply competitive group of people who would not use to having women amongst them because it was before you could loan to the foot sites so I was. Never. A member of the types you were on sufferings invited to join the evenings amd, my dislike of that whole world has never left me I mean it's a bit pathetic because honestly it's fifty sixty years ago I should have gone over it. I should've at I haven't when you say you had a dislike of the whole world which continues to this day which world do you mean I think I mean the world of Comedy which at that time was largely male and it was competitive just horribly competitive. And I didn't really like that much like people to be social gentle with each other. So you derived in London, how did you get your break? How did you move into acting in? How easily did success come? Not sure success has come even now but I think it all began because I loved radio I listen to radio as a kid always and when I was at Cambridge. A BBC radio produced John Bridges came, and watched the footlights and gave me his card and he said when you leave, Cambridge contact me because I think very talented and I'll trying to help you with an audition and saying, I left Cambridge off to two years gone by and I'd sold encyclopedias and done very little else. I thought I'll contact that chat John Bridges, which I did. And he was incredibly kind arranged an audition for me with the BBC Referee Company and I got through the audition and they offered me apart and then a few months later they offered me an engagement for a year with the BBC Radio Drama Rafferty Company, which is about four people. There was a lot more radio drama that under is now and I worked with wonderful people you John Osborne and Jill Bennett tire member Wilfred pickles. Donald. Wolf it. Patricia Rutledge, and Paul Scofield I mean the wonderful people don't fit famous. Shakespearean. Actor Paul Scofield obviously gifted brilliant. Who was the other one? You mentioned that I hadn't heard of Wilfred Pickles Wilfred pickles I'm not sure who that is. Well, he was a radio star and he had a show called go with Mabel at the table and Harry Hudson at the piano he used to interview just ordinary people going around England but he was a very good actor as well and I loved radio and I still love I, still do quite a lot of radio. It's. It's a source of huge pleasure to me. was there a moment when you feel your career took off or has your career as you see, it been a slow crescendo in terms of exposure and work maybe A. Crescendo. had. An extremely, extremely slow crescendo. I think possibly when I did the girls of slender means which was sometime in the seventies and Clive James God rest his soul gave me a wonderful review. That was a good moment and then I did my own show much later in the eighties with Sonia Phrase Cool Dickens, women it was very successful and I think it's still some of the best work I've ever done I did twenty three characters from Dickens I told the story of his life using the characters because they were based on real people in his life was not your idea to do the Dickens. That was my idea because I studied the Kittens Newnham and I've always found him to be the most exciting and my life. What is it about Dickens vol literary figures that speaks to you so much? I think he's remarkable. For the excellence of his prose the. External River. Riot his characters because he created over two thousand and the passion with which he lived his life. So that, in the living, the life is the magic of the man and he was able to transmute that into the novel's.

He's made a bird bath well, I mean, I could do that my partner in Holland she's making Britt she's cooking. Well I can't do that I'm not a cook I can microwave beautifully but icon coke. And I'm frightened I'm frightened of dying. Less frightened than I used to be but I'm frightened of dying with this illness because it's really unpleasant. It's scary. I'm scared. So I'm really not having a good time I'm very sorry to hear that's. One thing I should quickly say though is you're not with your. Your other half what term do you prefer partner? I've heard you use I think partner is easier. We we've talked about it a lot, my partner and I she doesn't particularly want to be named. But one of the things we don't like his wife, we are not married we are civilly partnered. I would never call him I. Still Partner that's just two camp were. With that. Am I right in thinking, you don't typically live together most of the time you are at a distance physically we didn't live together. She is an academic writing a book on Southeast. Asia says, she lives in Holland where the archives are in a beautiful house. which he built many years ago overlooking the fucked. So have front room looks over the canal and it's beautiful. It's Seventeenth Century Hours. And she visits me for conjugal visits as often as possible and I do the same. But I'm a busy woman to I don't get a chance to go for as much as I'd like. And I was trying to remember the last time I saw her was actually when we went to Dublin. Little holiday I was going to appear on talk show old late late show which I love I love into island. So she came to Ireland and we had a few days in Ireland. As it happened a very prominent journalist, Marian Finucane died when I was there and they wanted to debate the program to her. So they paid for me to come to Dublin, but I didn't have to sing for my supper. We had a lovely few days and then she went off drums dam and I went back to London and that was in I think Januario v Wade I haven't seen it since. I'm sorry I. Know I tend to go on and on you have to stop me because I love talking so much we'll. That's good because we have plenty of time actually it's all part of the idea which is that we have free flowing conversation, but let me refocus us for a second. So one of the things I enjoy about you, which may be your stock in trade in a way is. A degree of outrageousness and a willingness to say the unsaleable when there's something that perhaps others much shy away from noticing when you're making a documentary or just preps generally in life you seem willing to go there. Would you agree that that's a trait.

I've seen you've collaborated with trippy read who I'm also a fan of land I actually do like your music. Surprised to be honest with you I sort of thought, you start expect a youtuber to be capable of making really good music, but we can talk about that in a minute because what we were talking about was with I was going to guest on a track of yours and the answer is, yes, I will. Know, what we were talking about was, what were we talking about this world of beefs right? Any wrestling I think I'm I'm not shattering anyone's illusions about wrestling when I say that the feuds and wrestling are confected. They're not completely real, right? Yes. So when I see youtuber feuds I'm thinking okay. That might be something real in this but there's also something for formative about it it's been lightened or partly it's a gimmick. With me all real. So I've had beef with some of my even friends to this day. So I had a little bit for the Seidman that was the policy that you when you were coming up you were the seven of you. Is that right? Yes. Yes. Me Saying I was leaving the Seidman is just trying to rattle stuff. There's some things I'm just coaches is unless the posse that you came up with that would make sense to the general. I. Don't know that it really will. You had a group of friends who are also youtubers right and for while we lived in a house together yet were you in each other's videos and stuff? Yeah. Yeah. We were in each other's videos we came up together like we've been doing Simon videos for years now and it was organic. It wasn't. Management. Organic will just friends and we thought this would be a good idea. We have fights we have this. It got quite personal with the districts a lot of people like watching this and going. ooh, I. Don't know this is really not. They're kind of going in like that really like going quite deep with the stuff that they're talking about but. You must be conscious that it drives views and clicks, right? Well, that's another reason why I love US jumped on it because we saw that was just views in it but. With me in the back of my head, I do views. But then I was also thinking I need to show the I'm musically better wrapping wise I'm better, and then the I needed to find things that were better to make sure that when I do release this, it's a bang as well as we'll give us, etc. what was the first beef you got into a youtube? The first beef was a guy called Raucous rocker and this guy just made like the most outrageous music racist music literally just everything you wouldn't normally talk about he would like make a song about it but people all the reason why that struggling themselves.

"Letting, I could just talking to you all all afternoon I feel like you've done so much and there's so much to talk about very serious Louis. I'm sorry of trespassing on your time and goodwill there's a couple more things I wouldn't mind getting into if you're if your energies. All right, I'm fine. Piece of vegetate chocolate. You talk in your book quite a bit about Keith Harris. Keith. Harrison Orrville fame right bear with me because this is going to connect. So I was pleased to see them because you may know I knew. Keith Harrison. Well, I made of documentary about him in round, two, thousand and two. So a couple of weeks I went and visited him at his house in Black Paul, doing, Pantoja in crew was that like it was intense it was quite an emotional man. He was very influential for a couple of years of my life. I'm thinking about his hair fascinated you. You talk about it a lot. You had a bubble perm. Over miss none of the commitment. Afro Afro and very tight trousers. He was hip my take on Keith like the idea of him being a hip would shock me. But probably he was back in those days he had an encyclopedic memory jokes literally say. Barbecue and he'd give you three jokes about barbecues in new stuff and there was a lot of frustration with Keith. One of the things that frustration Moore's he lumbered himself with props to him. The ventriloquist's dummies were props and the fact that. Took became. So huge was a mixed blessing for him. Well, I, asked him about this because I once heard a rumor that he was so upset with the level of fame that Orrville had achieved oval was actually probably his less funny Oh God courtesy puzzles the Monkey. A dummy bill was playing it for Uis, rather than laughs the fact that. He had that. Song. Bobby crossroads the ORRVILLE songs over. But. Having every Every Twice Shaikha fly go up in the sky all the robot who is your fair Lending who is your? Best friend you are right. Anyway who is your very best friend but the point I'm getting to it's I. Once heard that he attacked Orrville I asked Keith this I said I heard you want so frustrated and angry at Orville that you came off stage and you punched him through him to the ground and attacked him and salted your own dummy and he said, no, no, no no I couldn't. I wouldn't. I would never have done that to Orville, which is quite an odd thing to say but. The thing was yeah. I. Think you're right that he had a level of angst about his role as a niche act. He was a killer comic. Unbelievable. It was quoted it was funny..

This book here what comes across is a lot of love and affection and also some complicated processing of the level of physical discipline that went on. Now social services it'd be around Jamaicans often and third world people often make jokes about the strictness of their families but actually you can see sometimes the middle class white audience go hang on that doesn't sound right that she hit you with a frying pan the she hit you with a boot.

It's it's a tough thing to talk about because it's taboo over it now but I've got three kids. So I can sort of understand the temptation to discipline your children and there's rushes of Angola sometimes a parent can have a tantrum right. You know I would run away and do kids do. But you know she would really catch me and I WANNA have bruises or whatever Welt, and this is funny when Richard Pryor says it and it would be funny when I would do my act but actually when you reflect on it and you read it back to yourself you go okay This woman was physically abusing me. And feel about that. and. Then what you do is you go well, that's what mom was like but it's still Tough to remember and to re experience and when you when you're writing that stuff, you're experiencing again in the moment that bought some sadnesses for me when I was writing the book because I realized that this woman might be needed somebody to talk to didn't have anybody to share her problems with the that raised me kind of like a black Gary Cooper or something he wasn't particularly overly verbal. Those a lot of sharing of feeling is going on in that house. Let me put it that way. So I think those a lot of. Feeling Constipation. and. Suddenly you're in the of beating your child having these feelings of frustration and anger and self loathing and not knowing what to do with those feelings and suddenly taken out and your kids you know. Which is, is there a part of you? That thinks Oh, instilled some sort of sense of restraint or appropriateness in you because she was so strict because you could just as easily say that if you use physical violence on children, it's sort of teaches them the language violence well, yes. The consequences for ill behavior And it was violence. You know it made me scared of lots of things and I I sort of regret that. Would have liked to have been more fearless been able to stand up for myself as often beaten up and I hated, it did not him myself. And so I would just allow people to do stuff to me that now would never dream of letting somebody insult me aw call me a racist name or whatever I wouldn't dream of that stuff. But as a little kid I've been brought up to Hindi grade and everybody's friend as suddenly you fill yourself being internally wounded by things that people said a not nine what to do about it..
