"You got tyrod getting hurt. Got Herbert to play in your toughest match up in your biggest division rival and he was excellent. And not his fault that they lost the Game Anthony Lynn said last time I checked we lost the game yesterday. Okay, maybe you shouldn't appointed This is this is what you want me WanNa have he made a big mistake though he made a big bet interception, he should've just run the ball. That's. Yeah played. Well, I think he played well, don't run. Especially well first game. And Great and the thing that you look for is you look for was overwhelmed by the moment and I guess the cameras though saying on the sideline like man this is cool like he's he he gets it like he has the Moxie to play in this league and to play hopefully at a high level and now you've got a chance to see him unprepared. Now he should be prepared it's a layup of a game because the panthers going on the road. Without their best player that you don't get a better scenario than this. So if I'm Anthony Lynn Gay, you WANNA be cool. tyrod fine tyrod make sure your test is okay. Sit Out another week. If Herbert. LIGHTS UP THE PANTHERS Potentially. Could I'd start him over breeze for example, if he's starting, that's how much confidence I haven't him. Guys. So let me just let's just kind of get through the rest of these names are so Philip rivers against the jets who are awful what's your confidence level on him? But but I think he could be good. All right and Stafford. Stafford them right. Yes Yep. What about Nick Mullins what about Jeff Driscoll Mohan at the giants Okay. If I had to pick between the two of them, it's driscoll. Okay. Yeah. Mullens made eight starts in two thousand eighteen and he was on pace for forty five yards and twenty six touchdowns. But also twenty interceptions he had four Pretty Damn Good Games twenty three or more points. He had four pretty bad games. Yeah. I'm thinking mullins for sure I running. But Driscoll himself was pretty good. Last year twenty points thirty one points in fourteen points in three starts. A running back. So a lot of repeating but Josh Kelly I'm sorry if Josh Kelly is available seventy, one percent. Not Close over Mike, Davis not close okay. And then you've got Mike. Davis. You've got Daryl Henderson Jerick McKinnon Miles Gaskin devante. Freeman Dion Lewis Wayne Golf I really think we've covered all of these names some we haven't carry on Johnson. At Arizona Frank Gore got twenty one carries he's at Indianapolis this week Chris Thompson caught a touchdown five touches and Jeff Wilson. We talked about REX burkhead. We talked about I. Don't know that we need to spend more time running back I think Chris Thompson's interesting just because he saw chasing points, he was more involved in the passing game so not for this week but moving forward. Pp Leagues he could be interesting sounds like you guys are GonNa pick the Jaguars this week. I'M GONNA. Take. The dolphins. You know what I learned to. That Philip rivers is horrible because the Jaguars defense is as bad as we thought, it was going to be and you go back to week one and Ville rivers couldn't beat that team. That was pretty bad. He's not. You know what we're seeing that give Ben Rothlisberger credit because of the older quarterbacks right now brady has not looked good reasons not good. Rivers has not located Radi should have had a much better game last week than what the stat say. He had receivers dropping passes two touchdowns were trapped. I'm not ready to say Brady looks at. All I don't think I. Don't think he's bad but he has not looked good. Definitely has been some stats and two points that should have been on the board that haven't been. He said, yeah he said some some good moments some bad moments when we did that without garden credit. So new system new coach, all that stuff. New climate weather's different. Real. Estate you know just so many things for Brady have to think about week he would have been Seattle so really wouldn't matter. What do you mean? He had stayed with the David. Yeah Right okay. Wide Receivers Deebo Samuel might be available, seventy, four percent roster. He's out this week he could come back and we four. Robbie Anderson, the only issue I have with. Robbie Anderson Right now guys the chargers defense looks pretty really really good. Really good. Aj Green could add a big game. He had two touchdowns, tyreek hill had ninety nine yards and a touchdown although it took a long time for him to get. Good. No. Other wide receivers at more than thirty three yards against the chargers. But is Anderson A. Long-term. Play. I think he is. He's a short-term play to not to play him this week not consider him as a at least a third wide receiver they're going to be throwing the ball fifty times. Tons of targets lot of them are short range and a couple of deep balls mixed in. Okay Allen's art is also sixty eight percent. You may be the perfect safe floor high upside receiver that no one. Really gave any credit before the season started Anderson. Yeah. There's one guy that I wanted to bring up. He's eighty one percent rostered. How do you feel about? Brandin cooks if you see him on your wire I don't want him to this week. He'd be ahead of everybody that we talk. Okay, Brandin Cooks Pittsburgh this week fuller is not injured is he? I think it is. It's one of those. We're going to get a limited practice throughout the week, but he's not on injury report. He did leave the gaming comebacks like what happened in Boston Scott. Last week where right you know look like he was in trouble and then was able to sort of work his way through it. There's video of him getting stretched out on the sideline with this answering. Yeah. So. Just just thinks that he's heard again he left early in the fourth quarter didn't come back after the game it was reported a hamstring injury. Okay. I. Thought through it without a target. But he's you know bottom line is wolf bowers got hamstring issues right now. So. You don't even need to say right now. Russell. Gauge. Nikki Harry. Harry had six targets in week one Cam Newton through twenty passes, and then here twelve hundred, thirteen lead and targets. Yeah. Yeah. It's two guys basically getting the bulk of it. So he's forty percent roster gets Las Vegas this week Corey Dave. Better, Kyo Harrier, Corey Davis. Long Harry short-term Davis I'll take Davis. mvs thirty percent roster talked about Golden Tate earlier. And then you've got guys like Michael Pittman. who's got an opportunity now with the colts and Keelan coal and viscous Chenault. So calls get more targets and he's got twelve targets to two games. Who Do you prefer coal to good Games two Games coercion all. Chenault long-term coal right now. I'll say Chenault for both because I. Feel, like we've been burned by Keeling coal a couple of times already in his career. All right. If you WanNa just put someone on your bench. Is a cage, a handler, jalen reiter brandon. I you. Those three who would be? I think raiders got the most upside. If they start to use them a little bit different right now, he just running down field, but you know had four catches after only one catch me Guan is obviously wildcard because Garoppolo but handler. If he gets drew lock back the opportunities you trim now without something there..

ICE whistleblower speaks out, alleges mass hysterectomies performed on migrant women
"Yesterday will learn about a whistleblower, a nurse working at Georgia Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Ice Facility. Leveling, honestly, ghastly allegations chief among them that women in that facility migrant women say that doctor was performing unauthorized hysterectomies on immigrant women detained that facility, which again is privately run. Now, you might have seen this story zipping around social media understandably, and the allegations come from formal complaint that was actually filed with the watchdog at the Department of Homeland Security and the whistle is on the record is named. Her name is Don Wooten, she was employed by. That detention center and along with those unauthorized hysterectomies, the complaint also alleges the facility lacked protection against Corona virus for detained immigrants that detainees suffer from a general lack of medical care. We've been chasing this story all day along some of my colleagues here and NBC tonight we can report a lawyer named Benjamin o Soro representing women at that very facility told him BC news that indeed two of his clients received hysterectomies they believe may have been unnecessary and tonight. We hear on all Lynn spoke with another attorney who represents two different women who claimed they also had unnecessary hysterectomies while detained at this facility. That lawyer tells us that as many as fifteen immigrant women were given full or partial hysterectomies or other procedures for which no medical indication existed. Now we reached. With these accusations, they sent us a long statement disputing. Allegations and the implication that detainees are used for experimental medical procedures. They do say an independent office will investigate. These claims is also says that since two thousand eighteen, only two individuals facility were referred to certified credential medical professionals for hysterectomies. Of course, the referred is the question here. I should also tell you also reached out to private company that runs US facility, or they are not commenting on the specific allegations. They say, they have a strict zero tolerance policy for any kind of appropriate inappropriate behavior facilities and they refute any allegations of misconduct. Were hurt the nurse behind that whistleblower complaint who got this all started Don wooten and her lawyer John Whitty, join me now don wounded and John Whitney. It's great to have you both. Thank you very much. Ms I want to start with you and just ask you to tell us what you did. What was your job at this facility? When did you start working there? I was first employed. Irwin. Kinda detention center in twenty. Ten. been to this facility three on three different occasions. Are returned in. Twenty. Fourteen worked until twenty. Sixteen. On came back in two thousand nineteen. On I was a nurse, their medication nurse. Six eighty, six, p.. We did total detainee and totally inmate care will responsibilities there. You talk about in the complaint. Hearing from women who are detained they're talking about a specific doctor. Performing hysterectomies referring giving uterus collector tell us about how you heard about this doctor and what women said about their experiences with. You have detained women had several detained women on numerous occasions that would come to me and say Ms. Wooten. Historic to me. Why I had answers as to why they hit those procedures. and One lady while up to me here. This last time around between. October nineteen until July the second and she said, what is he is he the uterus collector? Does he collect uteruses? And I asked her what did she mean? And she says everybody that I've talked to has had a hysterectomy. And you just don't know what to say. I mean I. Don't I don't have a answer for why that they would come to me. and. I would say, is it a uterus later? How would you describe? How would you describe the standard of Care? The general sort of? Medical Environment in which these these migrants were detained. The Standard of care. was. It wasn't timely all the time. They would have. A procedure to where they will fill out forms to be seeing. Those forms shredded. They will be towed in area instances that you know there's nothing going on with them just on numerous occasions and as a human, you just don't treat people inhumane. I have a title as a licensed practical nurse and I protect my title with dignity to where I was raised by you treat people as you want to be treated. These sanitation especially doing Kobe the sanitation was horrible would have anything to sanitize with. We didn't have the proper PP so they didn't have the proper PP e they didn't have anything to sanitize. We'd while they were down in the dorms as Wael and when you ask You will be reprimand. Did you have cases of Covid in facility. What were the steps taken to deal with the outbreak in the country happened. When we first the first case of covert. Dan Facility it was covert is not here in the facility. Then we had another case and it was like it was not here in the facility we had several more cases and it was like cold was not here in the facility. You know there was not a proper separation of those detainees whenever they come in and you know there's a fourteen day incubation period. No, they weren't separated. You know whenever you question you didn't have the proper PP. I admit I refuse I have sickle sale. I have kids who have underlying conditions as well. They're asthmatics. So the protocol was not being fought. It was not properly reported to the health department was not properly reported to the CDC nor was it properly reported to sail? You were. Essentially demoted as my understanding from the complaint that from from a from a fulltime employees, sort of more kind of at will. Swing employees. Your contention is that was essentially punishment for your statements about the unsafe environment you felt there your resistance. To working when you had symptoms Zach is that is my understanding correct there. Yes. Mr Woody, you look like you want to say something. What do you want to? I did want to jump in and say that Ms Wooten has been a vocal. Critic of the conditions within the facility for you know for many months and the you know the the the the the the most recent retaliation of demoting her was you know to some extent was just a buildup of all of her per internal whistleblowing over the course of a month and especially since the beginning of covert. Do, you have further Mr Woody I. Wonder if people sincere the attorney attached this. And I know there's a number of groups that have worked together. On this complaint. We've now spoken to one one or on the record and other lawyer anonymously about women the women coming forward with these complaints. Do you expect that we will see? More public declarations of these allegations from women who actually experienced it. Well, it's a very challenging situation to come forward with information like that, and there's a lot of risks to to to way out Weather more will actually be able to summon the courage to talk about it certainly through their attorney is an excellent process is to make those disclosures and with the number of cases that that MS wooten others allude to There's a lot. There's a large population of these of these women immigrants who've who've had this who've been mistreated in this way assaulted Should you know there there's a pool there that could come forward. Let's hope they do ms miserable. What would you like to see happen in this facility? What are you? What do you think the? Adjust. Set of of of changes would look like. Unadjusted of changes would be a change management. If you change management, then there's a possibility, there will be corrective measures but if not changing management then I'm afraid that it would be hard to correct those measures. Don. Wooden, who's the whistle blower in this complaint against this facility ice facility run by Private Corporation in Georgia John Woody her attorney. Tremendous bravery coming forward MS wooden. Thank you so much for sharing your story tonight. I. Really appreciate it.
First Berlin Production Equipment, New Largest Supercharger Location, Daimler Emissions
"Our here, and today we have a super charger network update, which is nice. Little throwback for those of you that have listened to the podcast for a long time I used to do those every day at the start of the podcast. We also have some news on Berlin paint a small little updates slash rumor. I would call it on Battery Day and the news on Daimler Nikola Motor as. Well. Tesla stock with another really strong day to day even though it was relatively quiet news wise finishing up seven point two percent to four hundred and forty nine dollars seventy six sense that compared to the Nasdaq up one point two percent we'll start off with these super charger news. This is coming from Brian Mac se on twitter, who is a long-time listener and I believe Patriot supporter of. The podcast who happen to come across a super charger network location under construction near Firebaugh California. As far as I can tell, this location had not yet been noticed. So upon Brian tweeting these out Tesla Motors Club Forum members did some digging on this and they were actually able to find that the permit for the site as well as planning documents for sort of a conglomerate travel center at. This location those documents disclosed that Tessa. We'll have fifty six spots for Tesla charging at this travel center. Assuming each of those spaces has a super charger associated with it. fifty-six chargers would put this as the largest superchargers location in North America and possibly in the world surpassing cattleman city in the United States at forty chargers and believe in China, there are a couple locations that have fifty chargers. So. Pretty exciting this location is between San Francisco and La driven miles. It's about two hundred and thirty miles from La and about one hundred and fifty from San Francisco. It's not clear if these will be all version three superchargers but I'd have to imagine that they would be and as far as other features go. It looks like about two thirds of them thirty eight of the fifty six. will be pull through hopefully accommodating the use of a trailer and making things a bit easier for the cyber truck and potentially also accommodating the semi of course, cincy unveil of the semi. We haven't heard much more about Tesla's mega charger plans. So hopefully, we get a bit of an update on that during battery debt. Right next today is an update on Gigabytes Lynn gigafactory underscore four on twitter. Has Been following. The gigafactory development closely looks like some equipment has started to arrive, and some of that equipment carries branding for Geico Tikey Shah? which is a paintshop solutions provider based in Milan Italy. There's also some signing there that is co branded between that company and desolate GEICO take show describes their approach by saying quote innovation is our weapon of choice were constantly increasing the technological possibilities in. Order to meet the needs of the most demanding customers in a highly competitive sector and quote they also seem to be heavily focused on sustainability and they're their paintshop operations. They have a project called the party's project, and they say quote with the Party's project launched in two thousand, five Geico Kotecki show was the world's first company to offer zero environmental impact paintshop reducing consumption by seventy percent and. So. Without really knowing much more about the company does he pretty good fit for Tesla we know Tesla has pretty big aspirations with the shop and gigabyte Lin Yuan talked about it many times and even setting Matt aside, it's good to start to see some production equipment on the grounds of Giga Berlian and though I haven't seen it yet. Maybe this gives us another milestone to compare the progress with Giga Shanghai from what I can. Tell, it looks like paintshop equipment started being put in place at Giga. Shanghai. In early to mid August of two thousand, nineteen with production of course, then starting about four months later. So if that's the case, if Berlin falls a similar time line that could potentially project out to start production and January probably best to keep expectations for later than that but I do think it's helpful to keep an eye on how those timelines compare all Right next up today is something that could end up being completely nothing but I thought it was at least interesting enough to share earlier today Fred Lammert over at electric tweeted out a couple of images of him holding a pretty significantly sized battery cell and Fred Ask if anyone has seen this battery cell before or you have some information about them, please reach out to him. A says also by the way, this new cell May. Or may not have been made by Tesla I don't really have much speculation to add this. A couple of people on twitter were saying that it does look like a tablets design which we've talked about and past episodes. But really just pointing out to say could be something to keep an eye out for the next couple of days if electric is able to you dig up a little bit more information on whatever this ends up being. Last couple of pieces of news here. Today I on Daimler Daimler has reached a settlement with the US government to pay one and a half billion dollars and settlements and penalties to the US and California State to resolve allegations of Daimler using emissions test cheating software to conceal the actual emissions from vehicles even with the settlement, and despite the fact that engineers at the EPA found software designed to cheat the emissions tests. Damore denies wrongdoing saying quote as stated in the consent degrees the. Class Action Settlement the company denies the authorities allegations as well as the class action plaintiffs claims and does not admit any liability to the United States. California plaintiffs or otherwise and quote. So I don't know kind of disappointing to see a settlement of that nature that doesn't require the admission of fault with such seemingly strong evidence against Daimler right lasting today is a quick update on Nikola Motors. It sounds like from the comments yesterday that most of you preferred that I don't do significantly. Deep dive on this budget stick to the high level updates, which I'm totally fine with if Trevor Milton wanted to come back on the PODCAST, I would probably do that. Otherwise, we'll stick with these updates anyway today the Wall Street Journal and other outlets are reporting that the Justice Department has started to also investigate Nikola Motors due to the allegations that they had misled investors by making exaggerated claims about their technology I know that sounds similar to

"Pay their sober people and sober solar 's and other people who are just interested in fine tuning near. Mental Health. Yeah it's me Linh and I'm in Georgia peachtree city to be exact for those of you who don't know I. Would like to just kind of reintroduce myself if you're. A recent joyner to the podcast I am a licensed professional clinical counselor with a private practice in Peachtree City, Georgia, and I also practice online with my clients back where I was originally licensed in Minnesota. So if you're in either of those two states that can work with you as a counselor, however I also have sober. So recovery where I coach people because that's what do you do when your therapist and want to reach more people in the world you practice your coaching skills which we also use in therapy. So I've developed this coaching program that I use with people, which is very similar to what I do in my counseling practice extraordinarily similar. And I offer that through private coaching packages where you can work with me individually for a series of months and you can find out more at Lynn. Mattie DOT, com or sober. So Recovery Net, they take you to the same place and you can just check me out there. I started this podcast in two thousand eighteen really as a project to get my voice out there. And share what I know to be good mental health with other people along with issues that surround us when we are in recovery or trying to be sober and all of those good things and today I am surprised. But happily so to know that there are about twenty five thousand of you listening every month and I'm ever so grateful for you picking up what I'm. Putting down. So today's subject I loved digging in two things that interest me but also seemingly come up a lot in my week to week working with people who are suffering in the same way that I dead wanting to make their lives better and finding ways to do that. That are very empowering. So today I wanNA talk about one of the most powerful tools in what? I call the buffer zone, which is essentially your toolkit it just i. like the analogy of a buffer zone because you can grow it really big. I am putting my two hands out very close together at first and then stretching to become a big buffer zone of things that you can do to help you cope and one of the most powerful tools as I said is acceptance. Let's figure out why people often will say I can't. Do this anymore I can't stand it. It's not fair. This possibly could ruin me. This can't be true and it shouldn't be this way. It's almost as if we refuse to accept truths that are right in front of us, and we work really hard to keep it from becoming true. Or that we balk re refused to accept that if we do this thing called accepting. It means a green with this thing that is. Seemingly. Unacceptable standing right in front of us but accepting doesn't mean a green I like to think about accepting as refocusing your energy. Because it's exhausting to keep fighting what is happening right in front of us the reality of what's happening in front of us, and moreover, it doesn't work refusing to accept for instance that you've been fired or that someone's broken up with you that your friend cheated you somehow or did something wholly unexpected and something that goes against your very values you weren't you know accepted into a program that you like. This becomes pain and pain is uncomfortable and it's not what we want to experience. Accepting reality is difficult. Exactly because it's painful, no one wants to experience disappointment sadness or loss but those are experiences that are part of life when we attempt to avoid and resist these emotions. We add suffering to our pain. We build the emotion bigger her with our thoughts and our rumination creating more misery by attempting to. And or suppress these painful emotions

Los Angeles Chargers safety Derwin James expected to miss 2020 season after knee injury, per reports
"The Los Angeles chargers. Yeah we mentioned. Like the the injuries like Nick, for instance it. Bradley. Chubb is such a mystery right now, there's more mysterious injury situations around the league than I think we know there's less reporting, but Derwin James is injury on Sunday. We know know the extent to it but I know that it's the most caught or I think it's the most costly time injury that there's been since camp started. Because I think he brings out the best in the coaching staff getting to be more creative. This is a bad defense with a lot of talent last year they weren't in the top twenty most efficient defenses. A lot of good players. Yeah. No they didn't have Derwin James, but that's pretty disappointed. He unlocks the cornerbacks you know he he unlocks his tactic partner ratio Jenkins who played really well. I just think he's such a unique special talent losing James is devastating for this defense in it's GonNa put a little more pressure on their offense in tyrod the score some points because I don't think you can count on them being top five upside defense when Derwin James is not on the phone I don't like that term more pressure on tyrod Taylor to Scorpions I know that everyone is fascinated with tyrod Taylor right now it's plain out and it's not fair to him, but it's almost. I think it's like a little bit of the hard knocks after I know. I, mean, it's just that's what happened in Cleveland what a leader what a guy and I think he is, and I think the coaching staff really loves Anthony. Lynn loves tyrod Taylor the person in wants Tim to be functional but the problem is tyrod. Taylor stops being fun about three weeks from now and then you got a rookie quarterback that when. Coaching them. He did he had some moments to be fair when he was in Buffalo In Buffalo yes. Not In Cleveland and I just think that there was I don't know come on. I, mean Austin to me is the centerpiece on that offense I believe in until the end but they're wide receiver right now back he's not but look at their wide receiver position. So what how do you WanNa talk about scaring the defense with a mobile quarterback, but they can't do anything they had said they're gonNA. They're immobilizing how how versatile they can be through the air. I think it's a rough place for Justin. Herbert. To get starts early to I, don't like that at all.

George Cunningham, Texas A&M University - Physical Activity and Climate Change Attitudes
"Changing attitudes toward global warming is hard. I'm Dr Lynn Pascarella. President of the Association of American colleges and universities and today on the academic minute George Cunningham professor of graduate and professional studies details one surprising way to do so. Being active as a number of benefits, including better fitness and cognitive functioning reduction, various diseases, and improved, physical and mental health. Our recent research also points to another outcome of being active climate change attitudes. There are certainly exceptions most fiscal activity takes place outdoors. As. A result exercisers are able to enjoy nature and become more connected with their surroundings. At this is the case exercisers might be especially aware the ways in which climate change could hinder their ability to be active. When they arrive this conclusion then might also advocate for new laws and policies that would serve to protect the environment. To examine these possibilities, we analyzed data from over thirty one, hundred counties across the US. And addition to collecting data related to fiscal. And climate change attitudes. We counted further factors that might impact the results. These included the county residents access to physical activity demographics education in voting patterns and the two thousand sixteen presidential election. After, accounting for these factors, we found that his physical activity increased so too did county residents conviction that climate change personally impacted them. Personal Harm believes then related to their preference for stronger climate change policies. based. On these findings, we concluded that activists, scientists and policy makers looking to shape public opinion around climate change should consider this sport and physical activity domain that was George Cunningham of Texas.

Putin adversary Navalny was poisoned, German medical team concludes
"The Berlin hospital Sharat treating the seriously ill Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny says he appears to have been poisoned The statement from the hospital Clinical evidence suggests an intoxication for a substance belonging to the group of Kyle Aloneness draw star ASI inhibitors, But doctors who treated him in Russia say the substance was not present. Mr Navalny fell ill on an internal flight in Russia on Thursday. Paul a very good evening to you. The headline from BBC is cautious about Navalny's. Certainly there is Logic to the fact that he was poisoned. You explicate that in your hill piece about the pattern in Russia. What do we know now, about the substance that they found in his body that the Russians say is not there And the Germans say is good evening to you. Good evening, John. Yeah, You and I are both reading from the official press release of charity. And although the languages muted their very clear that they did find this variant of sarin poisoning in his body. Um Moscow is saying, Whom are we to believe? Are good Doctors in in ER didn't find such poison in his body. So there must be something wrong in Germany. That's the official Kremlin line right now. I understand. He was on a flight from in Siberia from Tom's for Omsk. And then several days later, after the offer by Macron of France and Miracle of Germany, he was thrown out of Russia and to this hospital in Berlin. You're a piece in the Hill, though, is helpful, not just in background of who is navalny and wise in trouble, but also the pattern. You name Politkovskaya and names off and then we should also mention Lynn Finance Co. All of them. Either poisoned or brought down by gunfire. Notable opposition to Vladimir Putin or to the Kremlin general is Is this a personal opposition to Putin? Or is it to the whole apparatus ball? Um Navalny has been known for quite a while as the top opposition figure in Russia, particularly after the assassination of Borys himself. So he's practically the last standing, um, opposition figure to Putin. Uh, he himself is not able to run for office because He was convicted on some trumped up charge of corruption and as such, he could not himself. Hub. Be an elected official. But his strategy which Putin was quite worried about was organizing, Um opposition candidates picking the best shot to compete in elections and so forth. Ah, and this activity um some suspect including myself. Ah worried Putin because of his declining writings and the ability of his candidates to win in these regional elections, So it's a fairly complicated story. The other targets of what looked to be a political assassination puller Politkovskaya, As I recall, she was a journalist working on the allegation that Mr Putin had been connected in some fashion. To the destruction of of residents in Moscow that led to a great number of deaths that at the time this involved the Chechen war. Nemtsov was associated with opposition to Putin, as well in lynchpin in co was living in London at the time working for an oligarch who had fled and he was poisoned. Famously with a horrible Ah, horrible radiation poison. So my pattern looks to be that someone's running this Paul are the is this Is this just a piece of the larger story of how politics has done in Russia that you kill people is well, a cz defeat them at the polls. Well, killing opponents is nothing new to Putin's Russia. The list he went through our only the most prominent ones. One can put together a list of 10 15 Mohr. Ah, in fact, um Russia, I believe is the second most dangerous place in the world for reporters. So if you look at all of the cases that you mentioned, you can come up with a reason why Putin was worried about him why he needed to eliminate him. So the big problem in the West, however, is that Although we know that such things do not take place without the approval from the highest levels. This cannot be proven in a court of law. So if you look at the little opinion could case and another case, there's also this script Paul case where they A father and daughter survived. The courts come down with convictions. Or the actual killers who are safe back in Russia. And then they say, well, likely this could not have happened. Without approval from the highest levels, but they can't Use that, um, insight to convict Putin. So, So far, Putin has survived all these assassinations. Quite well, I would say. My measure of Mr Putin is that he has arranged the Constitution so that he has atleast another two terms. Ah, that would make the opposition to Putin self destructive, wouldn't it, Paul? I mean, are we looking at people who are Destroyed by a machine that is dominant and and not showing any weaknesses. Well, Putin is showing weaknesses and this may be may explain the timing of the of the attempted killing of of the volunteer. By the way, the plan Clearly was he was going to get on that airplane in Tom's fly nonstop to Moscow, which is around the 45 hour plus of flight, and he would not have survived that flight. So the fact the plane Did this landing emergency landing in all saved his life. And so were it. Not for that he would be he would be dead, but Putin is showing distinct signs of weakness. Um, the, uh, demonstrations in a bottle. Car Ongoing They're not diminishing. By the way. The what The demonstrators were shouting Now in a bottle is Mr Putin. We invite you to tea. Which is quite telling, uh so it was. It was T that was a suspect for having poisoned Navalny and was T that poison Litvinenko as well in mass in London. Yeah, it's important to add that for them for the listeners, Uh, so he has the problems in a bottle. Which could be a spark, which could set off the entire far east of the Russian republic. He has the problems in Belarus, uh, which Navalny was contributing to, um, which is very much like a color revolution, which is Putin's biggest fare for himself that he will be thrown out by, uh um, demonstration said reached the hundreds of thousands So Putin is not in a good position right now. And there was this fear that he could actually start losing control of regional legislatures.
Damian Lillard Exits Game 2 vs. Lakers With Dislocated Finger
"It's a big sigh of relief for Lakers Laker fans at least four game last night as Anthony Davis comes out aggressive the Lakers beat the Blazers one eleven, ninety eight, and again, that was never even close but Robert. This is where things change really quick Damian Lillard leaves the game. Late in the third quarter at, you're trying to stick his hand in there. Poking in for a loose ball dislocated left index finger he went to the locker room had it taped up x-rayed and x rays were negative. So that's a really good thing for him. His status for game three D doesn't really have status right now he said he's GonNa play I mean. Yeah Antares DOT at. It's a little too early to tell. Obviously it's good news that he has the the it's been. A negative x Ray and generally when you have a dislocated finger like this I've seen some some doctors talk about it and say. The vast majority of people play the next game as long as it's not the next day and so clearly, it looks like Lillard could play. But suddenly rob you go from twenty four hours ago where the blazers were. Hey, with this are playoff we're red hot. This is look Lillard. Lillard play off each star bubble. MVP. Whatever you want to say about them and here they are now trying to figure out. Man, we got boat raced in game two, and now we gotta get ready for game three and we have no idea how this injury is going to affect our best player things have changed overnight literally in the result of that game and Lillard getting injured because even if Lillard was healthy, they were still not winning that game last night it was all lakers. When he left, they were down by thirty wasn't it? Eighty five fifty five or something like that I mean so. The finger thing I get it as we move forward. Jason but you know after game one, they came out and laid an egg and I'm not really all that surprise I know everybody was so caught up on Portland they were all Lynn Dame Lillard and all the you know the upset special I heard all that and I get it. The Lakers didn't. Play well in a bubble eight games will awful I mean go look at the numbers down at the bottom and so many different categories, and then they laid an egg in game one and play poorly. So of course, people were the you know you're going to hear more about it but I picked the Lakers in this series I just didn't think that. Portland was going to be able. Even throughout the struggles of the Lakers that they would eventually be able to to win and the hard part is and what's always to me the neutralizer in the NBA when you talk about teams is breeding team four times you know you beating Anthony Davis and Lebron James Four Times. That's that's not an easy task. It just isn't and I think that's Ultimately why for the most part in the NBA better team always
Building Empathy To Focus on Downstream Effects
"So, here's the critical thing about thinking about second order third order fourth order effects, right these are the things that happen. Beyond. The original decision. Most of the time. The rewards that we receive. Right, the recognition that we receive from our co workers from our managers, the raises we get there often based on the first order effects. Thing about this a second. If you were to, let's say speed up the the front page for your company's website I don't know. If you were to do something that was easy to measure. It was easy to to see the value that you've generated and it was easy to see the first order effect. The idea that people would come to the website maybe the the measurement of how long it takes for that front page to load. We'd go down and so you receive some kind of recognition, right this is a first order fact and its immediate response, and it makes sense in a lot of ways that are reward systems will be based off of first order effects. A reason for this is that second order third order fourth order et CETERA. Those are harder to measure it's harder to see the direct impact. That you know speeding up your website is going to have on you know how long a customer stays with the company right maybe they. Maybe they will stay longer with the company. Maybe that is a positive second third or fourth order effect. Now just to be clear a second third fourth order fact, these are things that happen you know well after the initiating action that caused that thing to happen. Right and the reason why they're so hard to measure is because of that delay something else has happened in between and it's hard to disavow big you eight whether the original action that you took was actually the reason that this second third fourth order effect occurred. Or whether it was the first order fact of a different action entirely. This idea of focusing on the downstream effects and finding ways to measure those downstream effects. This is so important. This is real point I want to drive home, and that's because most of the time is spent. In. These. Second and beyond order effects. Most time is spent. That first order fact An into the multiple of resulting effects after that, and that's because our decisions compound. Way. We, make decision it changes all of their future decisions. Right. This is where we're not going to get into the the philosophy of. The different decision paths we might take when we make a given decision, a changes, the future of all of our other decisions and every other decision is built on top of that one. But this is the critical factor here. All right. Once we make a decision, the effects of that decision will last indefinitely, we can't really measure exactly what those effects are, but they will ma- they will last indefinitely. kind of the landscape of what's going to happen whether the the scope of that is within your company or within your personal life or if it's much larger. So there is a way to kind of generate an understanding or an appreciation for these in order effects I guess one plus in order affects these anything beyond the initial. Action and that is. To develop empathy for other people. the seems disconnected draw draw the line between these two things here. If you develop empathy for other people. You'll realize that a large amount of our life experiences are the result of downstream effects. A lot of our life experiences are the result of one plus in order effects, these are decisions that were made. That maybe initially had one effect, but then they snowball into this other different effect. Developing, empathy for other people's situations, their experiences this helps you see more clearly the one plus n order. Effects. That have occurred from particular decisions, and so this is an easy way to kind of provide you with a microscope or maybe a biographical Lynn's. On these effects that we're talking about the downstream effects of our decisions.
Five Super Good Rules for Recovery.
"He's sober sellers. It is hot hot hot down here and Peachtree city. Georgia and I'm kind of excited today have got some exciting personal news for myself. I've decided I'm going to move I. Think I mentioned this one of my former podcast but I'm quite excited about it a little nervous but overwhelmingly happy anyway that's a little bit to share with you on the personal note today. How Nice is it when you get a whole bunch of written reviews on Itunes and others, verses deliver to you in a week. Thank you guys for being. So kind I. thought I'd read one today. This is from actually I think I'm the leave off the name just in case this person wrote I am a thirty nine year old mom of three girls recovering from what Len has taught. Me would be a moderate to severe substance use disorder I am two hundred and forty days sober Woo Woo, -gratulations Lynn she writes thank you. You are helping me learn healthier coping skills and you do so with so much love and light God bless you. Thank you so much. I can't tell you how warm I feel on the inside knowing that I'm helping someone out there. It feels so so good tim. I'm going to offer you a nother five ish list I dunno, I just called it that but I just did in last week's podcast I shared about five ways to transform a shame and I came across another list this week from addictions and Recovery Dot Org that shares the five rules of recovery which I thought were pretty brilliant I think any time that we are. Kind of going about our days lackadaisically which. Many of us doing these days except for you parents who are sending your kids back to school I'm sure you're days aren't so lackadaisical but oftentimes we get caught in the Rut or were overlooking our needs are definitely you parents and can get lost in the day to day life that we all have, which is why I want to up our game on. Sick recovery skills we can all benefit from going over these and paying closer attention to what may be getting lost in our day to day rituals or programs of recovery. Or calendars schedules all that kind of good stuff and remember recovery is for all of us. When I first started my journey using the twelve steps of a I would read them to other people including my family and folks are like well I. Think we all could kind of benefit from taking these assessments of ourselves becoming more aware of things in our lives and I couldn't agree more. Remember that you can apply recovery to anything in your life. If you're feeling low, you can recover from that. If you're feeling stressed, you can recover from that. Recovery is a return to a more normalized state. Of Health of mind of body whatever you need it to me. So try and listen with a close ear today. If you don't have a substance use problem think in terms of your anxiety or your depression or your. Compulsions to do things for other people whatever is causing you problems in your life. You may be able to apply some of these rules or principles to just change the language up a little bit because we are going to be specifically talking about addiction. Alright then rule number one, create a new life where it is easier not to use or create a life where it is easier not to behave the same

Even though I didn't really quite like it then I saw it again and I didn't quite like it then. I saw it again ten years later and I didn't quite like it but then I saw it two years ago and I showed it to Danielle on my wife and she had never seen any star trek movies and she liked it and finally sing it a fourth time completely taking taking in what. It's not. I finally could see it for what it was. I can't appreciate it also. It was just kind of fun about saying William Shatner starring the literally at that time the most expensive movie the and who's the villain it doesn't really have a villain. Yeah it doesn't have a problem a black hole which had Robert Forster and I saw that that I saw this now now. It's now all the big science fiction extravaganzas. They've been making for a year. Now they're all coming out at the end of the jerk. I naturally so that a couple of times all that jazz not only do I see all that jazz when it came out playing on one of the few theaters in the South Bay the UA Turin's that was a standalone theater. Most of them were multiplexes. Two other ones in the South Bay and but one of the They usually played the big epic movies like an apocalypse clips. Now or a close encounters star wars would play there but the U. E. Torrance managed. I have managed to have really wonderful experiences. I remember like like even seeing Annie Hall there on a Sunday so new Willey on movie didn't know anything about it just I was fourteen eighteen fourteen. Yeah I just because it came at the year before. Yeah Yeah and so I. I just looked in the newspaper. It was playing at a three thirty. You show on a Sunday. I didn't even tell my mom what I was doing. I just hopped on the bike. Rode out there and saw any hall and little little. Did I know I'm seeing a real piece of cinema art. That my twelve or thirteen year old brain's not really kind of it's equipped equipped to handle it but it's handling it. It's a thing right. I've seen thank right and you knew it and the thing. That's even hard for critics. It's time to to to decipher right. I mean some people thought it was a joke machine because they couldn't see the depth and signed it. Wasn't that a while. My mind was blown but but I had seen something. That wasn't wasn't bananas and take the money or take the money and run. And so I I remember. I rode my bicycle home. So I've just seen Annie Hall and it's left it leaves you kind of melancholy kind of wistful feeling and I'm I'm having melancholy wistful fillings about something. I've never lived and I ride the bike home and I just kind of go in my room and I remember blind down on the bed and thinking about what it was that I saw. Wow that's so nice one of my favorite movie memories of coming home from Sunday afternoon. It's still daylight outside. My mom didn't even know I went to the movies you know and I'm just kind of having this private moment with any hall and I ended up having a similar thing with all that jazz however the thing that I remember about all that jazz by this point in time I'm lying about my age and I'm working at the pussycat theater right. I remember this so I'm working on a porno theater. I'm sixteen years old saying I'm I'm eighteen and I'm working at the pussycat theater and I just get off work and I go and see and I. It was Friday today and I just got paid Friday night and just got paid and I go see all that jazz and while I'm in the theatre. Blue is my paycheck. Yeah it was that I was the Trappist disaster and I still like the movie so much I was still happy. Even with a design a tragedy a a disaster disaster disaster and I still love the movie. I still thought it was terrific. I didn't really get all that jazz when I saw it as a kid to be honest I I I like it. I love it now but at the time I found it like she's death I don't know the whole thing was a little actually got that. It's I think I got everything I needed to get and I didn't I didn't I didn't bother me. Yeah I saw Richard. Richard Leicester's Cuba when it came out can do much for me. the electric horseman which was really good. At the time I saw chapter to which I didn't didn't care for when it came out and now comes down to the more exploitation. He kind of things I think independent movies I circle of iron. which was David Carey? Movie is is based on the Bruce Lee. Scream played the silent flute. Obviously Richard Pryor Live in concert.

"Serving that you were not happy. Stop now and guess what I. Yeah Yeah so the thing is like we talked it up and tried to make it for a long long time and then finally got got accepted at a small company called senatorial that kind of high end exploitation movies True Romance. Yeah sure mets Paul Hertzberg and Lisa Hansen. They ran the company and one of the things about them is they had for a while they. We're actually getting theatrical engagements. And they would do that through their company Semetel but the thing is they had an output deal with Columbia so they had prestigious video uh-huh releases. I think their biggest they had. They had some expectation he hits like you know nine seven six evil or something like that But I think they're they're they're their most. Prestigious movie was that bill will be relentless. We're Jed Nelson place a serial killer and so they got the film then they got then they got me started. They hired me to do a couple of rewrites on a couple of movies that they were doing to dialogue excited I was completely excited. And so they were going to do with Ballistic because I'd been I've been pointed bill direction from Scott Spiegel wrote wrote evil dead to a friend of mine and I sent him true romance and and had written reservoir dogs by that time. True Romance Ansah read natural born killers at the time so he read both of them and he thought well they can't be made. But this kick anomaly right but then he started like. Why can't you romance be made? Maybe I could make and so he was going to do it with Senator Al.. There was an interesting thing. Senatorial had a woman who ended up being a really really helpful to me. She was hired as the leader development at senator name was Cath Catlin. No good name and she used to be Tony Scott's assistant And she's their development person so she's the one that Kinda hired me for To do a dialogue Polish and another movie that they did and she kind of worked through me on that one and her big thing was bringing true romance to the company because she really really liked it. Well well she finds out that. I'm a huge Tony Scott Fan so she actually introduced me and and so Tony Kitchen brought around. It was on the set of less boy-scout so who's that kid you brought around. She goes oh he's a really young writer that I'm I'm I'm grooming him and she was grooming grooming. She totally was totally me to be professional. And she says young rider that he's really talented and I'm bringing them up through the ranks at senator. Al And he wrote a really terrific script. Okay well why don't you send me a couple of scripts. I wouldn't mind reading them now. Cool so she sent him true romance and reservoir dogs so he reads it and he goes. I WANNA do reservoir dogs. And she's like well that's when he will from self to do and and and I could could tempt him but I actually. It sounds like he's getting going. It sounds like it's actually happening and it was starting to actually be a real thing. It wasn't just a pipe dream and partly because I had actually sold Taroman so I was legit. I sold it to senator. That was a company people had heard up. Yeah it's a big deal. Yeah it was a big deal I it was actually a producer writer. But I'm on my way to being produced right. Yeah and that was all that was only need. As far as legitimacy was concerned the writer could could be a direct of course other it takes some guts and so she was so he goes okay. Well let's do the other one. Well how about the other one true romance. Well we have that. Well what what. Why don't we do it together right? I'll do it for you. And so the thing about it is so he wanted to do it and and so I wanted to and there was nothing excited me more than Tony Scott. That must have been like your greatest day. It was amazing. A whole lot of stuff had to be worked out. I mean like the less I think ended up getting paid like one hundred thousand dollars to not make the movie right away and then there was. All kind of senator wasn't involved with it anymore. I think they ended up selling the the rights to semi ideas company. And so but Tony ended up making the movie through Samuel Company and so he made the film and and it was a situation where it was like. You guys got the money to buy out by healthy small guys right. And so they didn't and they bought them out and they made the film and while they were doing that. Were you making reservoir dogs. So the thing is I had already made reservoir dogs by L. This time so it was like all that it took them the time. It took me to make reservoir dogs. How much time it took them to get disentangled from the whole Senator Bill Belichick thing but then to the outside world? It looked like you had like eight things at once exactly. No it was a combination of. It's like came the moment of quantum so I make sure I make reservoir dogs. That's my first thing and it was a big deal that the first thing that ever got produced was was directed by me. Yes because we're in it because I wasn't put into this. You know the saying of a writer trying to be. The director after arteries established himself as a writer. I didn't have to go through that. I was accepted as a director from the critics very first movie right very then in. I'm really short order. After reservoir dogs true romance goes into production and natural killers goes into production right efforts. I mean boom boom. So they're both going to be coming out before by next movie now. I'm writing my next movie. I'm writing pulp fiction now right and I've already written from dusk dawn so literally. It's going to have happened that it's reservoir. A reservoir dogs gets made romance gets made the natural born killers gets made. Then I make pulp fiction and then that from desktop don gets me so like everything I ever wrote is all all of a sudden produced and made in like a less than four year period. Well it was. It was amazing because you also changed changed everything else. Everything else got changed because of the things you wrote. Well the one of the things that was like but one of the things actually was like line of demarcation one thing that really boated bode well for me as far as like a establishing me especially by the time pulp fiction came out was reservoir. Dogs was enough of a smash as a first time film in the independent film. Saying to really be waiting for the you know the kids sophomore.

"While he's writing this do or die give it all mad love of two psycho killers that he finds so completely romantic making him out. And so you would see scenes from Jerome and I and they're going on and it's going on and then it would be punctuated by scenes from Clarence script. Wow of natural born killers and told because you to take that out well it was just too much. I knew I knew to take it out. I need to take with wet. It made the thing three hours long. All right and was also some of the fun stuff in the script so like A. Maybe Mickey Mallory deserve. Look I love the idea now. Rain they would it would be. It would be fantastic but at at the time one thing that made it unwieldy. Yeah it's the thing that made it too much right but it sounds kinda great. It sounds awesome. Yeah right but the thing that made it too much but also if the characters are that great why not make a whole script about them which is which is what I did was. I was trying to get points on the board at that point so I can make. It was better to have scripts one magnum opus. That no one would make because it's way too long long owned by the way this is your first trip a road. Did you sell true romance before you made reservoir dogs. Are you made reservoir dogs before you sold true romance everything. It just happened at once everything. True Mass was was always the first thing bike. came down. Cut The whole thing down all right and then and Roger typed it up and so I was with them the entire time typing it up and he wanted to produce the film and so he didn't go off and write on it but he's typing up and we're trying to make it as good as we possibly can right so. He went through the scripts like well. I don't know about this and I don't know if this can. We make this a funny joke. You know things like that so we get to those bits. We talk him out. Yeah and we talked him out and everything and he came up with really great ideas you know and then like okay. Yeah we'll put that in. That's a good idea you know. And so he was just so he was just trying to make it better and and and there was a there was a time where it it was like me and macho pretty much just shared the same brain. It was like nobody some movies the way we did it was like there was nobody else in our field that saw quite the way we saw and and we knew we weren't seeing what we saw. When we went to the movies we would? We would go to see films that it just had a fragment of how we saw movies just a fragment of that all right then that was enough because that was the most you could ever see was a fragment agreements and we're believers. Yeah Oh it was actually funny because I remember there was his wife Gretchen. She became his life and I think I don't think she was his wife yet. She never reading scripts before so the only script shiver red was my crazy scripts and rogers crazy scripts so she thought that that's how scripts were right. And then she see movies. Nothing like this. And they don't have anything like the conversations that they have and so then then we all went and saw the last boy scout right and she was like okay now. That's the first time that I saw a Hollywood wouldn't movie. That seemed as crazy as your guys movie. I love movies. And we're Tony do with that whole character of John Hallam Holland. Back and Damon. Wayans is good in that. Yeah but the thing is so holly berries in it. Yeah Awesome listen. I know you are used to Napkin at my head. Once when I was insulting topgun.

Didn't you drop. I went to a bunch of movies at the at the lack La. Yeah Yeah Yeah I think you were there. I just feel like I must have seen across away and like so. We Have The Passion of Joan of ARC guess who else was at that screening Vigo Mortenson. Really Yeah Talk to him about this. I know exactly what you're talking about. I was there that night early. Dropped out they all day for like three days of movies at lack I literally like cut. School drew a Fox Fan. During that period of time you know stocks even exist anymore no newark still there. During that period of time it was like you know God they would have like to screening between between us being Ucla Theater Theater or the lack ma or something else. A lot of the being they would have had like two screenings of what's up doc a year but none of which would be at every single one of join us doing a an hour long. Qa that nobody recorded it was just their booze and back before the days when people like filmed everybody's bettys QNA with their cell phones. People says gnarly Shit. Yeah so getting back to polling cal for one minute was it. How did you feel after the conversation where you happy sad just sensitive? No it was released. We'll know it was really. It was really gratifying to talk to her and it was gratifying to hear how much a how much affection she had for me. It was actually really excited. She was actually sure what's not to like. Well she I think she did sort of look at me as Paul L.. Let filmmakers she looked at me as as a filmmaker took her to occur aesthetics who took her aesthetic. Seriously you know and And I think I think she thought I had a joined Aviv when it came to that was kind of upper. Rally up her her pulpy Junkyard Alley. Yeah the same. You had a lot of cross section of cross pollination obsession there was a lot of mutual obsession and but at the same time like I. I'm sure she wouldn't have known what to make of kill bill because I just like the. I don't think that would fired on any of her cylinder she. She would've loved kill bill to to she might. She would've loved kill. I mean she's got a heart but one of the things that was really nice at the very end end of the show and she saved it for the end one she gave me one. Pauline Kale quote. Oh yes okay. So she talked about Jackie Brown and she said one line about it that you can imagine like you can imagine that that was from the review. She constructed in her head that she never wrote and she goes okay. I mean the the scene of going through the airport in the opening credits are not only. Is that from the graduate. She's costume awesome designs so much out of Pedro motive. Our film their mothers will be quotes around the shots. So that was that was. That was a little Like trying to make the best pam grier opening sequences ever done. Because why. It's really wonderful opening sequence Gary and But then her final thing that she said just before she got off the phone was I just want you to know I really enjoy listening to you. Talk about blowout on talk shows. That's good I love that. I love that movie. I love that movie. That's an underrated movie. But you know what I I you you know what I didn't realize I you know and I can't imagine I would have been able to take advantage of it anyway but dreamed what about it. What I didn't realize was when I was really kind of obsessed by her in the eighties and I'm working at video? Archives was how easy would have been to get better. Yeah you know I didn't you know it's like I now. Every interview method critics sitting around giving interviews but like any of those critics from that time period. Whether it be owned or Stephanie Harak or any of them you know they all talk about being in their twenties and writing you know a couple of movie reviews and some Cockamamie think peace and sending it to Pauline Kale. Yeah and Paul schrader talks about it. and and Elvis talks about it she reeser Cockamamie things written at one thousand nine hundred twenty and twenty two and then calls them the jobs he gets them on the phone and give some tough love and okay now I want to do this. I don't WanNa see you and you can't spend you spend three weeks writing that fucking review who okay now. You need to write it in two days. Yeah you know a die and then like would bring them along and then when it came time she got jobs. Yeah she's people call. She got jobs obstr- album she had Paulette's everywhere. It's like. Okay Dallas Herald. There you go. You know your time's here. You GO A- and now I couldn't spell I couldn't tie you know and I was like so incredibly flaky. I'm sure I would have flunked every test. But she might just go. Get your asked the fucking Gary. You don't know how to spell you don't need to. You need to not type you can you you you can type better at the end of this week. You could tie better at the end of this week needed at the beginning of this week if you join a class tomorrow when he wait you don't have to type trust me with all she responded to is your passion and also he doesn't have to be able to sell incredibly articulate. The amazing thing about Pauline Kale is and I think it's part of why we I love her is it. Sounds like she's talking to your ear saving thing with you. It's like the minute you say something about blow out it's like you're it may be written down but it's like you're saying it into someone's ear but I think she would have had she would've had the zine quality out of the Fan Boy Zine qualley Ali which I'd want to hold onto a little bit but I wanna be more literary like her but I don't think I knew that at the time I was more Zini kind of I ended up doing that. You wouldn't have ended up making films. Well this is a better thing that I look. I know I agree. I mean even to the idea that it's like even when I think of being video archives all right if we had like I I thought a budget time about starting. Some sort of Zine never had the fault I never. I never loved the idea that much that I was going to push it all the way and make that my main the thing right it would have been okay now. This is the thing I'm doing. And you're all cooperating right and and I never cared enough about that to do that. However however in today's Day and age if it was if it was simple as starting a video archives facebook page and writing reviews? Who's about Shit I saw and that the it looked halfway decent? When you post that would have been a different story? Yeah all right if you know if if I had a scituate for forget about making a movie on an IPAD on but even the idea of I can imagine me and the guys. It'd be the archives totally starting a podcast right and that would have been the video archives. PODCAST and. I might not have made movies if I had had that much. wjr If I had had an outlet if I had that that much of a satisfying gas ultimately unsatisfying but in the short term in the here and the now quite satisfying and you have a huge following. I think I think I would've. Yeah I really think I I really think I would have. If I'd had a larger platform arm to get my my movie shit out there and you can still do it now. Yeah now but now's a now it would be a different story and I could definitely do it didn't i. But I like that road. Take no I do that. Rather than there would be no pulp fiction bad. I do think about that because I do think that it's like me making actually making movies and making the movies I that I could make that. I wanted to make them being able to accomplish that. Do that that's such a crazy dream that it would have been easy along the way if I had had anything. Good in comparison to let go with that because I had nothing but despair on this. I know this dream to the very end. Everything else was just so depressing by comparison that I had no choice but to live my dream was the only it was the only outlet I had but I actually do think that if if me and Roger Avery had started a podcast. We'd probably be doing the fucking podcast to this day. And we'd be on our buck and fortieth anniversary and our wise is would never listen to it. We'd be like the fucking mark and Brian Movie. Shit Sir thank God. That didn't happen. That's all I have to say.

"Your case. I like this little bird. Like Old Lady. And she wasn't battled back then but she seemed kind of she probably saved ancient to you. You were a child. Yeah exactly and and so anyway. She was just a fascinating member like she put down the the cowboy during the course of the interview and she told you know she was like the Kramer versus Kramer. I mean yeah it's GonNa get all the awards but it's GonNa be one of those movies that you eight years from now. No one's going to bring up. It's a movie of the moment and she's going through all this stuff and like. Wow who is who is this woman and and she was advertising her book when the lights go down that was like a her reviews from. I think seventy six seventy nine or something and seventy seventy eight gives me so the next time I was at the mall going to see a movie part of I guess what other kids would do. is they go go to the mall. And they have forty five minutes to be arcade or something like that. I went to the B Dalton Bookstore and just hung around the bookstore and hung out in the cinema section action and then read everything. Yeah read books. Are I read movie books and dreamed about the day that I could buy some of these have. Can you imagine having all these look going into a bookstore and being able to buy any book you wanted and never ever by five of them if you wanted to do. The books are in Westwood called Papa. Bach and I used to hang in Papa Bach and he is like a Weirdo and just read everything I could find and so I noticed even recognize the cover from the Tom Snyder thing though when the lights go down book doc was brand new and so I started reading reviews and now is the first time I started reading. Reviews was just going to the B Dalton bookstore door and then just randomly picking reviews and then that went on for about three weeks and it was like every time I was I was. Is that the old town mall. And they had the they had a man's theater there and so it was always the oldest. They're the ones that had the polling Copa and so for about like three weeks I I just made it a point of Of the reviews for every weekend before I saw get out of movie and then I go back after the movie was over and read a couple of more reviews than get on the bus or get off. How much icicle? Here's the question. Did you tend to read reviews of things you'd seen or just read them for the sake of reading the no. Well no yeah now it was. I was definitely grabbing titled what I thought were provocative or exciting to read about and so And did you find yourself agreeing or no. I actually disagree. I disagree a lot a lot but I had almost took my confidence away to disagree with her. It was like that's still my favorite. That's my favorite book of Hers One because discovering her but also because of the movies this she talked about at that time period. Some of those famous reviews like her review for carriers and and are famous for the fury so it was interesting to I would read a respected review for a respected movie movie. See that I really liked. And then she would tear it apart and she would tear it up but you tear it apart in a way that you understood the absurdity of the premise or or the absurdity of how the character reacted or the or how the whole thing is just a cliche and a Witnesses the famous example of that. Yeah you got caught up in watching weakness when you saw it then when she shows you how this is the same damn thing you've seen a million times before for all right and actually just done more pretentiously. Then all of a sudden like the scales fall fall from your eyes and sometimes you're mad at her right right because you enjoy. You enjoyed that movie right exactly. Enjoyed the pleasures that gave you and how dare you show me how the sausage is made exactly and did you read also like did you go and read like the cary grant article and the articles that she wrote which should psycho. Once I got the book I wrote I read. Read everything so it took me about three weeks and finally I broke down and I bought the book and then I D- released like for the next forty years of my life. I you know it's like I now have all books and just even where I'm like living in Israel right now I just grabbed two of them are I just randomly grabbed two. It was like I think I grabbed railings and deeper into movies. I have been every edition. You can imagine all right of Ambu used bookstore. Here's one I love that and so I'll just and then and I just I'll. I'll go through this a lot of them. I know by heart a lot of them. I don't know by heart offer God that she liked this. Does she not like this exactly what she said you know. And it's like I did at the in the store I'll go through the table of contents and just what grabs me. The boyfriend serious wishes to say about Ken. Russell's Oh killing his sister George C.. which has to say about that? Okay greetings well. I know what she's mccranie but reviews but the thing about it though is like she became as an it hasn't changed. I thought it would change. She became my favorite writer and I thought if that would change over time I thought a novelist would eventually take over but that never happened now probably because I haven't read as many novels as I showed up all right in the a forty years I've Read I've read a few all right but not as much. Maybe the last last fifteen years some but the point being is I don't really ever see another writer meaning to me appalling. Kale like still means to me. You know I didn't go to film school. I kind of treated her. I've said this before. So this isn't that unique that I treated her like a foam professor. But that's an easy thing to say and I meant it and I ended and it's true but I don't feel that way anymore. Oh really yeah. When did that change? Well it's it's just I know what I'm what I'm doing now. More than she would have known what she was doing in the same situation. You've done it but the thing thing about it though is always kind of myself the Paulette of the filmmakers. Yeah but now. You're better than that. I don't look at now. I don't know I don't look at her so much. As as the object to reform I look at her as the arbiter film writing So to me. So that's why that's why she's so important to me less less what she says about the movies but how she says interesting the way she says it you know and then I can really take her to task for that too in a lot. There's a lot of things she was just unfair about. She was people she just didn't like and was just mean to them And and there's people that she that she liked that I even now realize that some of my enthusiasm for them was pulling Kale's with them and now I'm name is gone on without pulling Kale's reviews. I don't think I would have been that passionate about. This person. Had experience watching all those movies. If that person Jason but as time has gone. They're not quite cheap. They weren't quite as all that. But you also have your own passions which which you are so considerable and so pure and so you believed so deeply in Philadelphia. But I think you've talked her in certain ways you'd like taking her and then gone to to the next level. Well I mean well by the by the fact that I mean just as a filmmaker I mean even as a person passionate about film. Well I'd have well. I don't know about that because simplifying mm found that. That's not even me being falsely modest. I mean the thing about it is I mean it. Required her that Krimmer that required a tremendous amount of work and disciplined to write those reviews and get them out get them on a deadline and everything even with her sixth. Yeah even with like lacksadaiscious schedule compared to every other critics even having that as a gift and she could write as long as she wanted and only six months and knowing sad because if a movie that you're interested it is I mean who wanted to see penelope whatever you hear what I hear her right Nashville exactly Eh. And then she eventually did Nashville right. Didn't she do dwell she. She Wore Kale did it was controversial at the time. She reviewed a rough gut and it was like that had never been done before but she reviewed what you like the way. I've show news crap before it was done right. He showed her that before it was done as she reviewed viewed it so it would fall under her time period right. Well you know who my favorite writers who is my favorite writer. Yeah you're my favorite writer. We'll get we'll let me say my very favorite Ryan. Mike Ryan dissuade you from that but one thing. I will say though about favorite right that I thought was about pauline and you did meet her. You didn't meet well we met we met on the. I'm on the phone. We on the phone. It was like a thing where she wanted to she had through her satellites. She had let let overtures go loud wind. Why don't you give Paulina call? She likes to flight that. And were you nervous and I yeah I just never go. I'm not I'm not. The kind of guy who just picks up a phone calls was a stranger anyway. I don't pick up the phone and call the friends I've known for ten years aware of without a damn good reason to have some excuse and and And it was Elvis Mitchell. Talk me talked me into doing it and was one of those things like. Let's do it right now. We're actually restaurant so we went to the office borrowed. The guy was in France. I went to the office and borrowed the managers Phone there and we called Appalling Kale and I talked to her and and she was she was really lovely to me. She's seen reservoir dogs. Plus dog she'd seen pulp fiction. She Seen Jackie Brown. Ah I was writing. Kill Time. So she'd seen the three and I even heard a bit of what she had said about them because it should a a book released her our conversations with a friend. I in that in that book. She mentioned how much she liked. She mentioned Bamut particularly what she mentioned about. Jackie Brown it. She thought that this scene went. When robbery kills Bridget Fonda Perfection? It was there was a perfect same and then Then I heard what she then a friend of mine. I was actually dating a Gal who wants to give me some pollen Kale books and she got in touch with Paul and Paul. Ince one out of Braddock. Mike and Mike signed all of her books like to me. Wow I think was the eighties book. She's like oh so. I hope maybe maybe this will make you look at the movie you too because I was a fan of that one. That's so cool and anyway so Listen exciting that was really cool. And I remember my you know when she was talking to the woman Cindy Jo resenting which talking to the books she was like okay so I was writing thick and she goes the writing is next thing now she goes yes. He's writing his next thing now. Is Tim Roth going to be in it. I think there are pretty good pair. And then apparently them what she said in an interview during the whole pulp fiction. Who are? I wasn't aware of that. Yeah Yeah that always the that showing gone thing that happened and literally.

"Thought about this and you bring up somebody that I thought would be interesting with you to talk about and I decided to choose Pauling Kale while excellent choice. Excellent choice if I was actually an interesting thing because I noticed when I do an interview you were something with a now. The younger critics aren't that young any more. Frankly to tell you the truth but what if somebody who's like ten years younger than me or something right and if I do interviews as with them all of a sudden they'll say something to me at some point in this hour an hour an hour and a half interview. Oh my God I just love how you quote palling Kale all the time. And it's only when they realize that I quote Pauline Kale all the time and it's even to the degree where it's like. I remember whenever I watched movies and I would see characters quote aristotle or quoted owed flamboyant or Camus or anybody. I don't believe that I never believe that people walked around with that stuff in their head I always thought it was a silly movie. Affectation book affectation people are constantly quoting Shakespeare. And saying it perfectly to the letter this phrase or the standard. I never never bought it but the reality is now the time. I'm in my fifties from reading Pauling Kale as much as I have that I can quote her like that things happen things come up and I think she thought she had will pop into my head and Alverson. I'm like spouting Confucius even if I don't even agree three with it or not. I have to get it out of my system. When do you remember the first time you read her? Well the first time I read her was after the first time I I I knew who she was because how I knew who she was was she would appear on the Tom. Tom Snyder show appear with Tom. Snyder on tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow. Yeah it was like around like seventy eight or so is the first time I think I saw her repairs and I had no idea who she is. I never read the New Yorker because of the New Yorker magazine was a boring to me when I saw the cup right. I knew of it but I never read it and you didn't have pictures of those dorky drawings signs forget about it and so I remember. I remember the first thing I ever heard her say was Tom Tom. Sawyer gives her a real big intro and everything and and the first question the kind of gets interface. Okay so now pauline. You said that Philip. Kaufman's remake of invasion of the body snatchers because the best film of Nineteen Seventy Eight. Now you don't really really believe that. Come on that's that's joke right. And then she says I'm responsible for.

When I'm with my kids want to make sure that it matters like I don't I'm not a waste of time and that doesn't mean that I don't sit on my bed sometimes? Watch reality television but I don't consider that a waste east of my time. I consider that a very informative part of my life. Which Reality Television do you watch right? Now I'm watching Ching Temptation Island which I would not recommend to anybody. It's incredibly painful to watch. It's a show that is just wrong on all sorts of levels on in what way just having having sex too much. No it's temptation so you go. You're in a relationship. You go to an island they split you from your boyfriend and they put your boyfriend in a House with twenty five single women and you go in a house at twenty five single men and their job is to tempt you just bad idea.

Wow so that was like and I was asked asked to go and go to another country and that was I mean the excitement for that was yeah. There was no fear it was really just just. I was over the moon that I was given the opportunity to just go somewhere else and you went i Paris. No the I went to Morocco. Oh and then then after that I went to Italy where you modeling in Morocco. Yeah Wow yeah that must have been a bit of a culture shock after it was and I was doing a photo. Oh shoot one night and I was on a camel. The Sun was setting it. Was this beautiful setting and the photographer made this poor. Little Moroccan dude walked this camel in a circle and the camel just finally only said No. I'm done and it was getting dark and he started bucking and he hit his head back into my face. Oh my God and I. Yeah Yeah I dislocated my jaw on your first job job and I go to the hospital and they put it back and then the next morning I woke up a yawn and it went Out Again and then they put it back without any medication which was brutal and then years later I had to have surgery because it really kind of messed up my mouth. Oh my God I know. Some people think modeling so glamorous. It's so hard it's very hard so hard. There's a dangerous dangerous.

"Me an experience in in your life that was just purely one of your happiest experiences or one that shaped you in that way experiences and then like that time you were out in a lake and you were super happy and yeah I think when I was loss get this this way. Here's a good way to ask it. Are you happy when you're working or are you happiest when you're not or is it a combination of both. That's an interesting question. I think it's a combination of both. I think I am as a person. I think I'm not my best when I'm mark and I think I'm on my most confident while also still being lake really question of I can do if they a very weird weird almost like a split personality that you have. I think when you act like you're convinced that you're GonNa mess at all but you've also got an of confidence to just sort of like go for and it was with strange and I guess anything that I'm really familiar with. That's when I can be at my happiest. I think one of those people that's less spontaneous and more I think so. I think that like very spontaneous. Do you think I don't know I liked plan. You may like plan but I think you like a plan so you can go here and there. I'll say yeah I I like I like structure So I can just mess within the book. I think you would like being shot by Tim Walker if you were to not spontaneous. That's true but I but I also like that there's sort of like world that you're exist in a you know. I think like growing up where I did in the countryside was was like bliss I remember are just you know. Every summer we would spend every single day down by the river and we would be there for hours and hours and hours and you know it was myself so my friend Christopher and other friends my dog Sassy little border Collie a now. That was perfect. I don't know if it's just because it's my memory of of how it was. That's perfect book which is kind of like what happens with Joe. Childhood is like perfected by your memory. And it's kind. Hundred Lake untouchable shares although sisters. She has all those sisters and she doesn't for a long time like she doesn't need anyone else. I I know people the WHO've grown up in big families and they feel that way they're like I've got all my best friends right here right. You know. There's something really special to buy so yeah I guess I guess the only child makes you adult younger. Yes a lot of time with adults. Yeah I think that you become an adult adults sort of you definitely become more mature. I think yeah because you're just GonNa have to hold your own well. I met you when you were thirteen. was I I Percy maybe fourteen. I shot right after atonement. Why that was the first photo shoot? You probably don't even remember you. Were wearing a white dress and it was. There was a bearskin Rog. Or something and it was a house around here was for the times man tire. Yeah there's a beautiful picture we could find it and You were very poised. Then yes do you think is more poised than than I am now. You don't you're probably the same. You've changed very little. Okay Doc. I think things changed a little bit around Brooklyn because it was such a big deal. Yeah and also it was your first like I'm an adult thing. Heating changed just the. Ah think you had changed a little just because you grew up a little bit. Yeah now not in a bad way just it was quite a also sort of with the movie for like a year. I mean there was a lot of the promotion of that movie went on for a really long time because we went to Sundance Premiere got bought and then the Oscars is like a year later. Yeah so it was a long trip. Yeah like when you have done that before you have no idea of. What's Adia and you've no idea when it's going to finished like William Goto the few events in August and then your film like drops out of the race or or does it go all the way you just don't know you know? So that was insane. I remember just being on a high without because we just did not expect that all we really didn't just the small that large you know John had done a lot theodore and nobody really mainly people in the film industry. Shing may be new me a little bit. I wasn't a bankable actor by any means you know well you did something. That's extremely hard to do. You grew up in public doc. It's very very hard to go from. Being a child being nominated for an Oscar and then become more of an adult. You were still very a young but you were more. Weren't you know we weren't an atonement. He were grown up. Yeah more of a grownup yeah. That was very exciting for me though because I that's what you dreamed dove. We'll just say it's been so many big jars ban a child and phone which I absolutely loved. Then you do get to a stage where you're like. How am I gonNa make at this jump? Get people to see me as like you ought to be which I van terrifying really. I'll tell you if it's so scary because they didn't have the accent to hide behind. Oh like I was still doing. Country Accent is different to my Irish accent but it was. It was so close close to home not film that I was just like. I was petrified. Every single day I really was and I was the same lady bird for for a love it. Yeah so weird. What about little women? Were you scared. No and no because and I don't mean that it's not a it's not like I just I was. I was given this role that I felt. I could do anything anything with and I knew Greta so well and I knew we knew what the other one need is and what we wanted from one another and I love love like what I said before Greg gives you structure a new and then just like play within that and even more so on women than lady eighty birds. She allowed us to just like take the time that we needed to find. You know that was really. That was such a trip. Get into do data. I just felt like it was the whole thing felt very sort of athletic. There was a lot. There is a lot of physicality to it. There's a lot of like Wong congressman another of year but even in like the language and how much we drilled each San because we overlap so much that was all oh plans and I loved being that accurate with Saying you know it was it was. It was the best best experience. I've had playing a role for sure. It's fantastic yet. Brilliant so one final question before I let you go okay. Did anyone wanted any point. Tell you you should change your name. There was a project scares her. Didn't you know I was just trying to the. I won't say who it was but I remember there was a couple of producers that I worked with a few years ago and they said to another friend of mine who produce the film that we were on the way like her nickname is is search. Everyone calls her search. Maybe she should go by that and I remember my mate was like no. That's ridiculous idea. She'll never do. Also I had gone that long twenty to whatever age was where you know I. I hadn't changed Asia. I would never change her name but actually nobody else ever suggested that to me. That's so great. Yeah really great. I'm surprised I know so AM I. It was such a beautiful women you know. Now it's a popular name is that it's getting increasingly popular because of you are more little searches wandering around their little Certian I. I've noticed their cars and yeah and it's a popular name as a compliment for dogs. I know forcier SHADAW gonads awards. They're all terriers. There we go. I also think that the SNL song helped so much it served surged within the people to me now and can pronounce my name because they're like Blah snl song they like single zone me But Yeah I love my name. I hated it when I was a kid because it was different. A nobody else harbor and now lover and what does it mean I loved. Automates seriously means freedom. It's Irish for freedom and a lot of steak at home because I would say in the UK and in America. It's Sir Shack are Sasha. Because it's just easier. I felt like this was easier for them. Say It's actually pronounced Syria. Syria is thank you. Tracy Letts Sarasota as well but yes so. There's like a good time you helped me. The most was when I did. No I kept saying donal wrong and you would think donut. You saved me down. Because when I interviewed him I could say his name. He was very impressed because everyone says donal. Well it's very hard the way it's spelled. Yeah you just shouldn't look at the spellings of any remnants Sabah Kellyanne so many people called him salon for just like A. What planet is anyone called Salaya? Well what did they do with Russia. Sarah.

"Lane because linens in December. When did you first meet Greta? Greta Ivar Smack Dab Greta. Gerwig kiss thank you so off. I met credit Could few years ago now it was about a year before we did Ladybird Ladybird that movie. Yeah that little chestnut and she was doing twentieth money at century women. I think we'd skype D- before hands when I was back in Harland and then I was over in Toronto for the Film Festival for a few days. I think Yeah Brooklyn was coming out. That's what it was so I was sort of. I've been very very lucky that like I consistently works you know I. I don't like a job or two every year. Since I was young bull there was like a weird stage which I've talked to you about before. I'm sure when I was a teenager and I think a lot teenage girls have found this where you're assertive. ECON do the coming of age thing as much anymore. We can't be the kids but you're not a woman either. There were just you know it's mad that this was only like five years ago or whatever else probably less things have changed so much since then. Unlike there's just a wealth of options. Now which is like incredible he even then there wasn't and so Brooklyn was like my first venture into Mr Grownup role. And Yeah and I hadn't really early like had a phone that was going to be on that scale in quite a long time so it was like it was an exciting time for me and it was all quite new. Like all the press and everything I love to be an yeah. You are so supportive of that film. I've seen it six seven times. I mean I'll start crying just now talking about it Now I just love you so much I love you and everything but I doubt Luby's Wilton Imigran story and that's my family so when you see immigrants story that's told that well you know and the scenes when you're missing him and you know and I had fights with my niece over whether you should stay. I wanted to stay out thank you. Donald loved you so much tone. A lovely heavy. Yes ask mom you I know I was. It was a problem that you're already married as my niece. So so just like she's married then Lenny. Yeah but as I grow. She's but you never so we LE- scarfed anyway and then we went to Toronto with Brooklyn and so she came in for. She had in the mayor's anyway. She came in a red hair that she hasn't twentieth century women on that was the first image. I me opening the door out like San so dodgy but it was at like nine o'clock at night and she came into my hotel room and I had just gotten some French onion soup. I remember because I was so hungry. And and the two of us and see Laura dern and this is why it's so roy the three of us are working together where we use our arms were very. We've gotTa Love Lame Zoo going on and and I just remember straightaway. We just got so Gigi around each other. We still couldn't do the weird thing I've never had thought. Stop with someone in that way where you're just I just felt. I was just so excited tomatoes because I was such a huge fan of hers. And there's lots of people that I love but there's only only a few that I'm a bit late who am and they're usually from the TV. So you know what I mean like Comedians or whatever like that would freak recommit more than anything book graduate. Just something about the work that she did and the style that she acted in her style of Phil and Mike Not Really excited me even before I met her. And Yeah I just you know we're starting to do kyun aims for the phone now when untalkative movie and people like you are getting to see it and and critics against San stuff just genuinely ill. I feel so lucky for two movies now. I've gotten to to watch this person. Just go from strength to strength. I've gotten so much out of watching her just like sore. You're and I remember like when Lady Bird. Sorry I'm just going to keep talking about right now but I remember when Lady Bird came out and like when I was a kid like think even before I started acting I really liked getting the camcorder I and just for all of my friends to get into a chore offended. Spend that I had made and I found them. I loved doing that but I always thought like. Oh that's just something that you do on the sides. I'm I think somewhere in my Brian. I just sort of assumed that like to be a really great filmmaker really classic great director is something for a block. Because you're just so used to lay grown up with Scorsese and like all these Coppola and like all these really really brilliant directors directors and a lot of them are you know goes yeah. I'm there so brilliant but a lot of them are men and I think seeing grandma very quickly become one of the great filmmakers of our Tien dot changed my perception of what I could do for the maker so great and I took it more seriously I think and I just I remember have not thought and being like oh she she is changing things for people with with.

"To Q.. leear identify identify with that in terms of in terms of back. But you're still joe instill Joe Salchow. My shows your other other south. Yeah all right. So what is a thing that has had a huge made You know like something that in your life has had made an impression on you or a totemic thing that you keep with you or a lucky charm or a piece of art right that you saw that. Change the trajectory of your life a dance. You're always really good at talking about down's no I know and dance was huge for you. The fact that you're dancer I think has really affected so many things. Well yeah dances dances tap. ditsy get your it says it right. I know let's ask you. You had a crush on and movies and I love your answer. We remember your answer John Way Wage John Wayne because of how he walks. That's a dance response. Yeah I'm and the reason you love your again. Why because you put your head? You're yeah yeah I know I remember. That's because Edward was stylists fashion director. And he said something so and so great he putting the Sparkley little onesie young and I never 'cause I'm not us is zero and you know you never totally know a few feel comfortable enough you body but then a nice way attic. Oh the pictures I love I love. He just had this way. Yeah I would say Four me this is a combination and some not only pursued at this but this is the sort of the intersection I guess of of dancing and film singing in the rain. Stats this you remember how old you were when you thought young like six seven. I think it was the first time I ever wanted to re. We live inside of a movie. I think you don't forget that. I think I don't know a lot of cake to yes. Yes out of a Kagan agee hole and also loved gene. Kelly's face so much and everything about I wanted to be gene. Kelly kind of I mean yeah. I couldn't imagine anyone more handsome and more wonderful and I dance dance. He could sing and he was boyish without being a boy we pretty masculine is like a stair whether it's like kind of not sexual stare was I love and I love the I'm very I wish to rest by stare. t sort of staggering in dancer and the Howie shot those routines and what he did but let but I loved Lily and really I wanted to be Gene Kelly and that movie because it's about movies but but it's also dancing and singing and movies and and it's this relationship at the other Gene Kelly movie. Maybe I'm just saying the object of Gene Kelly who this was an American in Paris the whole room he has at the beginning. This sequence folds the Murphy bed and the toast and the whole thing that I continue to love love small spaces but gene Kelly as arturo really. I think was so choose from me. Combine to everything I was interested in. I think I assume everybody watches the movies and wants to live inside them. But I think if you feel that not as strongly as I did. Maybe that's when you WanNa work in them right you you WANNA find a way to get inside and of course the issue never really do but you you you know. You're it's as close as you can get the the singing in the rain. I think that's a wonderful thing to think that you're affecting people the way you were affected. I hope so. You are definitely the whole generation of people who WanNa be Francis Haw. Yeah it's I don't know if they want to be I I can't remember her name. What's her name mistress? America Brooke when Tracy rates about her. She calls her meadow. I just I don't know that everyone wants to do. But maybe maybe maybe on certain days not every day one thing exhausting exhausting to be broke every day. It's exhausting one thing. Definitely the with little women that we did as I remember saying to everyone that cinematography or and then Who Food Production Designer Jacqueline durant? Who did the costumes and the discussions with with the grip gaffer and everyone everyone I said I kept saying I want people to want to live inside of it and also eat it? That was a combination. And that's that's how I felt felt about those does gene Kelly's visible and so I think I was trying to tap into that thing and I don't think every movie I'll make we'll have ABC quality but I wanted this one to have it because I think it is for so many women that place you. It's discomfort the comfort of of the of these sisters and and I have had to re give it to them in a new package of day. They want to crawl back inside of it to that. I think there's something else you do. That's really brilliant. And all of your work. which is you talk about ambition in a very pure and interesting listing way and you talk about ambition for women in a way in little women? That's really interesting because it's not just about Joe. The movie in many way the subtext. So the movie for me and I said this to everyone I've spoken to is that it's a bad how a woman transcends circumstance in different ways whether it's through talent whether it's through beauty in the case of amy because even in the amy case I'm fascinated because I love the casting of Florence because in the past people like Elizabeth Taylor who are like a born beauty just sitting there doing nothing. Is Amy right so with Florence. WHO's very pretty but still still the idea is can beauty? Take me out of here. How how does beauty applied beauty become a ticket to another world world right and that is a fascinating thing in that character it becomes her arc in a way she smarter than she looks? But the smart isn't what gets her there right. I mean with all of the characters whether it's motherhood or whether it's obviously joe is about writing and being outspoken. Outspoken and talented and brilliant. And Beth is strange. I guess the thing is that I wanted to do is when she goes and sits in the Lawrence's just hasn't played. The P plays the piano that I wanted you to feel like a Koch. Of course she could have been someone. She's not marked for death. And and I want to every single girl to be essentially ambitious and crazy like what we would describe as like but even like all of them. It's true in little women of course but I think it's so fascinating how you amplify the subject matter because that's in the book but it's not in the book in this way. No Yeah I mean I think what I only really Joe. Well no his dad I would make the argument. It is definitely in the book with Amy. And that the biggest in the book as the biggest the amy and Laurie have in art studio or amy says I want to be great or nothing. That's from the book. She has an active discussion with about how she says. I you know I I. Don't I WANNA be a commonplace dubber and I don't intend to try anymore which I just thought. It was sort of staggering conversation. She has been she does very clearly. Say I'M GONNA marry for money and I don't see why should feel bad about that. But her giving up art is really interesting and I think I think what's neat about. It is that it's not. Actually schematic dematic with the two characters. which is well? I think you know amy kind of is like realize that she goes to Europe and in my this is sort my invention but like you know she. She spends time in Italy. which you'd see the old masters you on to Rome? You would have gone to Florence. Would've seen oh how great it was. And she's in Rome took all the vanity out of me right and you know because she would have been idolizing that kind of painting and then she goes to Paris and what I think is interesting in Paris. What's happening in Paris in eighteen? Sixty eight many is painting Cezanne Painting. They're starting to take apart the canvas and make paint. The subject of the painting is about to blow apart. And I in my imagining joining of who amy was stroke may May alcott. Whose artist sister is she got some Paris and she was like Oh shit and now they're already destroying the thing that I think they're they're they're making what I wanted to do? cubis the ready. It's coming anyway and I just that kind of analysis of you know Oh my God and what's interesting to me about Joe and amy and I've never really gotten into this because I think sometimes when you're speaking in shorter forms you don't WanNa get these things closely but was interesting to me is Joe. Joe Is also being told that she's a hack. She Writes Adventures underage student. Yeah and people don't like them she you know she's doing it for the money right. The difference between Joe Enemy may not be talent or anything it may just be. The Joe Never gives up and amy decides to cash in the chips. And that's what's interesting to me is like fascinating what what separated them as Josiah's kept going and she could make an argument. That's what separates effort NATO daily. I mean maybe you feel like life. What it is is who won't quit? I think a lot of. It's the outlast you outlined. Just keep working but I think you do. I was thinking of Louisa. And there's a there's a review in the Atlantic Henry James Panned her at at the end one of her books and that's she said I could be quoting all this wrong but I don't think I getting the outline of it right. But that's AH. That's where the thing that she said. I can't afford to starve on praise which I gave to search to say came from because Henry James is from this high flute and family he it has all this money he does. He does not need to write to save his family and Louisa needs to write to say per family. And that's the difference in any. She outsold old by Gino factor. One hundred I mean sheets she. She blew him out of the water. I Love Henry. James Henry James's ingenious. We don't worry about that but not unlike Joola we just kept going and I think I think that break between Joe and amy and I always saw amy and I love. Can you give me the line. And maybe it's in the book and I don't remember where she says something clever and Joe says you're so wise I mean I always was wise. You just never noticed. She doesn't the she doesn't say exactly that in the book which she says in. The book is I don't pretend to be wise but I am observant. And you're like Holy Shit. She sees how the entire tire game is rigged. And she's going to bet on this and what she bets on his. I'M NOT GONNA I'm not going to be painful for her to not be the best and Joe. It's just too painful to not do it right. And even if she is not the best and people always ask what would you do. If if you couldn't fail I think an interesting people always ask you that I will not lucky high school kids. What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail? They go after dreams but I also think interesting question is what would you do if you knew you would fail. Like what's worth it anyway right and I think Louisa Joe It's worth it anyway. They just kept going. But yeah. It's a amy. I wanted her to be something formidable against Joe but it didn't fantastic character. You made her a fantastic. And then I'll just do one more thing on it because it's interesting is like my analysis. I think I love your analysis for eighty the one one of the reasons. I made her CICCIO. Huge foil. Oil is is she. She is too in the in the book a she's she has shooting the same weight classes. Joe should just. She's boxing a different game and what I was interested in. I have forgotten how what scholar did this. There's all kinds of interesting gender stuff in it. You you know Lori is a is a boy with a girl named Josie girl with the boy's name all all of that kind of interesting childhood pre chant chantant pre gender roles stuff is gray but also you know. Joe Spends the whole book wishing she were a boy and almost performing performing masculinity right but amy is not feminine. So much as she's performing femininity ugly. Yes manx feminine. Yeah Amy's not. Yeah Amy's learned. That's what you're supposed to do that will get me out of here. Get me out of here so this sort of performance of gender under. Amy Doesn't need to do this particularly she doesn't because it's the most expedient way to get where she's going and I think that that's but that was a fascinating interpretation because yes I think that the classic thing to do is to just cast a straight up very pretty girl and Kala today. She's the pretty one end of story right and what you did was a billion times more interesting than Florence. So you cast Florence Darling. UH-HUH I love her too but that was what you did else might have cast. I Dunno whatever. Yeah well anyway. That's his name full digression. I could talk about little women forever..

"Be filled. Okay so now. We'll go to a place. Yes let place has had resonance for you. Well Big Sur. Really I thought we're GONNA say Sacramento. I know well of course of course but sir is a place to me is Brigadier June. Were when I was growing up we had family down in southern California down in San Diego and Riverside and so we drive down. We drive down mostly like highway five between between Sacramento and and all the way down that long stretch of done it Oh yeah Holliston. And the cows and the oil fields hot hot always. My grandfather was from Riverside and he dug in those fields. And he you know it. We're very we're California your family in the sense that all the reasons you've moved here for dust bowl reasons farming was better here. I it's like very like the way what I think that kind of history of California's which so new in some ways but I remember there was one trip and I don't remember how old I was when maybe five six that we for some reason we were driving down highway one and we stopped the pinch the firepit and I went to the way Fares Chapel which is a glass chapel and I like all not all all put a certain kind of little girls a lot of time planning my wedding and my mind and I was like in my mind for a very long time I would want to get married at the waverers chapel in big Sur with tap dudes in chorus of men in Tuxedos. I don't know what I was. That was so clear it'll be wonderful. Would be in this glass chapel. All these top DOC. Dancing men will come in. I don't know it was what I wanted anyway. and still I'm not just for me but but anyway so so I had this and I remember it being most beautiful place on earth and then it went back again then in my twenty s and I- car camped and I loved it and then I want back again like every time I've gone back significant and then the last time I went back was actually the right after all of the HOOPLA and the excitement and the Academy Awards I went to for Ladybird. The next day. I packed up the car with all my little women research and I went to a cabin in the woods in big Sur. And got real with myself about you. ooh What can I do this. I knew I was I I I had. I had a draft that I liked. I thought I could I. I could wrap my head around it but I felt like I. I always need to be alone when I when I imagine myself into movie making movies is so strange because you have to imagine you have to imagine and believe in a thing that doesn't exist yet and you have to know what it is and then you have to get everyone who you're working with to dream the same dream you are so that you're all in this. Imagine reality together. I think for me to do that. I need a lot of alone time because I need to. I need to know it and I particularly since it was an adaptation of something that meant so much to me. I felt like I had to the commune with Louisa and really get deep with the ghost of Louisa about what she wanted at sound. So Oh pretentious. But it's just how I need to do it so I had all her books and journals and they had all these. I had brought my content contemporaneous rainiest writers like you know trying to work my way through more. Thoreau and Emerson and then book she likes like George Eliot Middle Mar Middle. That'll march and also Daniel Dorando. Yeah and Milan that floss. Actually no one's well barely anyone in the movie at they've read When Joe is reading to bath on the beach she's reading from George Eliot the we could never loved the earth so well had we had no the child within it so beautiful and she loved George Eliot so it was sort of like what is she loved? What do we do you know? Why do how am I going to approach this? And and then I spent two weeks in big Sur with the trees in the end the ocean in a funny way it was. You know it's not I mean it's not conquered. It's the IT's west coast but I felt like it could kind of give me some connection and then I read somewhere where I Still WanNa do this. Monastery in big Sur and Pico. IRA does he does every year. And I I've always wanted to go there. But did he read. It's part of the mission. Yeah Yeah and he rented the when I was a child I built it out of sugar. Cube me too. I not that they built another San Juan Capistrano. That's a good one to build. Yeah sure keeps to I. You remember if it was out of sugar cubes but I do remember. It's had a long time. You probably did The better thing which is build it out of popsicle sticks. I was a little dumb about school projects because I was number two. TJ about them and my one of my neighbors who went to school with me. WHO's as a best friend of mine could? Different Noah Noah Shapiro Anyway. He I just remember. We'd do our homework together. I state reports. I picked main because I was interested in May because Maine was the first state in the Union to see the sun. Because it's the most easternmost in most state. That was the idea interesting but we had to draw a map of the state and no one knows. Like why didn't you pick a square one pit it Colorado and as you I. I'm drawing a coastline. But the right thing winging anyway I think there's a metaphor in there somewhere. So yes but so did it was probably out of interest and it took a lot longer but it anyway so big Sur and then recently I like I I'm I it's just a beautiful place and then I I don't know I be writing the script. I rewrote the whole script. There I took it apart and put back together there. So that's a say the name of your movie. Oh little women the little women I wrote. I had the whole draft but I yeah I took it apart. Put it back together because I can't. It's not yeah I don't make things that are modular so when I changed things I have to take the entire machine apart. It's not like I can move this over here. It all all kind of clicks in a way and it's very frustrating. I've noticed when the studio wants to give because they probably better because you think. Oh Oh can you just do this. And I'm like well no I can't because of this and they're like our guys here in my crazy labyrinth but Anyway so that. That was where I think the movie I you see now is that and I heard in my mind because I sir. She told me she wanted to play wage. Oh Very Joe Move I. I'll be playing Joe. Oh I got okay great. She says she knows But surfeit she's perfect perfect but I had heard in my mind to the speech. She gives about Women's that women they have minds as well. It's just hearts ambition and talent as well as just beauty and I'm sick of being told that love is all women's fit for but I'm so lonely I heard search say it in my mind and I started started crying alone in this cabinet in the woods and then when we were set she said it exactly the way I'd heard it in my head and it's one of those creepy things about making art especially making a communal art film. which is you know there's Louisa May alcott who wrote little women than there's me adapting it than there sir? Show who's playing Joe but also playing Louisa. And then we're all in some shared reality transcends transcends one hundred and fifty years and space and time I it's it's odd and anyway big Sur. I feel it gave me the magic. There is parlor other game which I always think is good but in your case it's so obvious about which one of little women are you but you're definitely joe so we don't even have to have that conversation do do I but I feel like I find myself in different parts of each of long. So you're not really. Wow Best. Weirdness yes yes I think people forget how weird this. She's also a one way you're like her because and so am I. She goes over to the house and plays the piano she does does. She shows the initiative to be. Everyone's afraid to go over there. She sedan she and not socially but she emotionally seduces the gentlemen of the House Yeah. He's everyone everyone in. The book is very scared of it in your movie leaves less terrifying terrifying. Yeah he's She's she's also. I love Punky we gave her. We gave her allies and always talks about her. Beth is being also genuinely peculiar which all comes from the book and it's always been satisfying. We we have her feeding her doll. which is really weird satisfied? The first time I watched it with an audience and and it got big laugh and I'm GonNa Z.. They see how strange shoot. Yeah because in the book which you know. There's so many wonderful incidents in the book and you don't have time I'm to do every single one of them although I would have loved to. But she has this sea power she. She accidentally kills her bird pip yes and then tries to revive him. uh-huh weird funeral. It's odd and it's but it's great. Yeah and I just I feel like the weirdness of Beth had never been totally explored. And that's why we give the line when may she's as Beth. What's your favorite color? Purple will but I just wanted her to say things like that. It didn't end up working in the kite but I also had a lies screamed uncontrollably. It was Laurie jumped out of the out of the Colas Rag and We had a few of the other things and Elisa was so good at tapping into the Strangeness Strangeness of Her and so so that part of it that kind of slightly in their own world to Q.. leear identify identify with that in terms of in terms of back. But you're still joe instill Joe Salchow..

"My children. I think the first time you give birth. I I was like Oh my gosh it changes you on a cell. You changed me on a cellular level because I was so oh I was old but I was. What what? They call a geriatric mother which is just a terrible term that they use that for. You're over thirty eight even but it's very depressing but but it was like. Oh the just that pushing out of a child eld into the world is is like unbelievable experience and so that was like and that changed me it was like a cataclysmic change that I was unexpected. In a way I was expecting to get the I thought I'd get postpartum depression. I so it. I'd have a really really long labor. I you know the pessimistic me but I was worried about all of those things and instead I I had like the easiest labor and had none of that and that's why I was like oh my gosh this is so unexpected. Isn't that weird. I don't know if I would expect it used to dance. You're in really good shape but it has nothing to do with it they said actually has to do with. How your Your mother Genetic no ways obviously some needed was your mother tall. She didn't yeah so everyone's tall but I was. I didn't know what to expect. So your your sister. She's six six. Yes Oh my word now and did they all go like my mom and my sister. They're going under the nose saying Bush till you're is power all that kind of pushing. Okay anyway this is graphic. Do you think is great for your podcast. This talk talk us. Do you think it changed your acting having children. I just think life has changed my acting this spin so many I've had such a a a roller coaster life and I've had things taken from me very quickly very suddenly which has changed my acting in a strange strange. Why because it's released me but it's given me this well of emotion so I've had things happen that have left me terrified raw? Aw totally wanting to just jump in and live life now in the moment and be as brave and bold and as grateful as I can be so a yes having children but also having such lost. It's like so so sudden and so a median. Traumatic has actually actually also changed. You know so. It's always contrast this too good and the bad we said life is the contrast without it. We don't know what we can't feel. Oh probably right so as much as you don't WanNa you're going to have to take the good with the bad but life is giving me now such i. My desire added just give artistically and give all as much as I can when.

We're not very We both still was so wonderful when you're with another creative person because there's is an enormous amount of support for your to stick drive but there's also just anyway. I hate waxing lyrical. Bad light to talk about it because we met later in life. And we've had a wonderful awakening together and healing and just a beautiful pot but but it's always been worked on. We always. We always consider the US would i. I love because I'm a country music fan. I love seeing you at the maze of the all the country music awards at. You're always there and he won for entertainer of the year. So when you were are you were crying and you looked so gorgeous and it was very moving but I also always wonder what it's like for you because you're not a country music you're from person you're not at the end now. I actually know so much because he has such such an unbelievable knowledge a music general. Yes but I can ask him about anything. Cabins is just on a big So I have have. I have a lot of knowledge now about country music and I love it that God would have Nice Kevin Coming. I mean my my initial I knew the judds the new Willie Nelson I knew Glen Campbell and absolute from because of my parents but that was kind of that was it really. And so then I had to have a really strong education but hey he is his. I call him the Jukebox and his his his stray stray. He knows he can recite lyrics. He can right. I mean he grew up on illegal where with a father who just revered country music so he a groping Queensland Loving country music and then he usually American was an event and he came here and then went on his own.

"Yeah and and it's important certain but yeah I mean but I also think it's fantastic that you also don't feel like you have to be good you know like well you Vaj Asher you could be you. You can be funny. You can be alive in that way. It doesn't have to be this role models so to speak. Yeah I think that way anyway I I mean sure and you don't also you know. Do anything like that that. Would you. Don't want to have sex with barnyard animals. No not not S- not right now not on at the moment but yeah no. I think that there's you know there's a good in the bad but I think for me the way that I see it as I see it as a good thing but also if it's like if you do something bad then what so it's like we are human at the end of the day but I think that representation should only force us to do good things and the movie I think is really helpful all the movies not just the farewell but I think the fact that the movies are different share share so much range Enj- I think you know. Why are you saying that that's a good thing? Yeah you don't want to just be the girl in oceans eight you don't WanNa just be the girl and crazy rotations. You don't want to just be the girl. Farewell Girl Yeah. I was very like overwhelmed with a with a nervous about doing drama. For sure you were. Yeah Yeah I had. Yeah Yeah I mean you saw my other movies. They're very different. Yeah I know but I thought you took to it so naturally I thought maybe I was the one who is worried for you. Talk to you for yourself. I mean I think people probably did probably save Luay. Are you sure that she can do drama. I I just sure came up. Yeah I'm sure lose dicta Lulu Point Yeah New yourself and you change your whole body language in that movie was there. You're sort of hunched over over. And you don't look glamorous and the way you can look labyrinths and your hair looks a little bit like you did in Washington. I didn't not always every other day. But that's this up very anytime. You're.

"Light scenes. Yes let it caught wheels in a small confined space and is there a place that has huge impact on you. Yes I would say that I mean again. First thing that pops into mind the balcony like the Verandah at the house us. I grew up in which was in Crumlin Valley again on the Gold Coast. But it's like we lift in the hinterland so it's very mountainous but you've got also a fifteen minute drive to the beach kind of just a kind of magical place which of course I didn't I always knew as a magic place. I always loved it and then once I left Australia. Of course as I realized just how special that kind of space is but yeah I mean outhouse will let me say the balcony you mean like the Verandah like yeah. So I'd sit wasn't a very big house house and there's lots of us so I always sit out on the Veranda and have a cup of tea and do my homework guard. Do My homework at a trip down behind the back paddock. Yes always always outside and it was just like the most beautiful view you can see the ocean from there. But you're up in the mountains it'd be Mystique Just a so so so beautiful I I always yearn for that little spot sitting on the Veranda. Do you prefer to be in nature or in the city nature for sure but I've loved with being in the city. I mean when I moved to America when I was twenty and I go to job on Pan Am which you reprise very memorable and once upon a time at home I was so fun. When that's that's the amazing thing about Clinton to sorry totally jumped tracks but his attention to detail in his? He'd watched everything done before we met. And you know even neighbors even pant all of that even the screen test. Yeah he watched all. It's going to really with you. Yes Oh my goodness Causey and so these are really good. This is safe THERALAC. Daddy's really like Oreo. Every episode of Pan Am Pan. AM He'd watched a bunch of me is like Oh goodness please give me. The job obviously wasn't a very good actor back then but but no so. So there's a brief glimpse of Pan Am stewardess in once upon a time in Hollywood and that is me and you to dance and I got to dance. Well that's when I was being Sharon tate on the Pan Am plane but I actually played one of those pimp stewardesses. You just never saw my face. It's just my hands making a bloody Mary. Leo I think which is good news. uh-huh did you bring out your own costume or did they get you a new. It was a different. This was in once upon a time because it was later the latest sixties in the TV show Pan Am it was nineteen sixty three. So they'd have they changed. The uniform is different. So you're going to say when you move to America and the right right so yeah no I mean I was in a big city and I loved it. Yeah I love being in a big city but no I do prefer because I know you just an easier from time to time. Yeah I could get away the.
