An Interview with Corporate Anthropologist Andi Simon

"Welcome back I've got Andy Simon, online Andy, how are you? I'm just wonderful. How are you Michael I am awesome. I'm vertical. That's always a good way to be a especially during times of pandemics and whatnot. So that looking forward to this interview for a bit of time now. So let's let's dive in. So tell the audience a little bit about yourself in in the. Work that you're doing. So my name is Andy Simon I'm a corporate anthropologist, a doctorate, and I am an expert in helping organizations and the people inside them change and I've had a background in both academics, and in business I was vp of a bank and S who've another bank can in healthcare during change. But what I learned to said people humans eight to change. And if nothing else a little anthropology might help them step back and see things through a fresh lens an essay due. You'd be amazed how their brain goes from fighting and resisting the changes to embracing them and saying Oh that's right here. So I would say, the way forward is all around you. If only you can see it and our job has been to help people do just that. So I'm an author and award winning author of a book called on the brink of fresh lens to take your business to new heights, and I'm a podcast like yourself and I totally enjoy sharing on podcast video and audio how people can help us change and humans really do hate to change they love the idea, but they hate to do it. So that's who I am. Changes a dirty word to a lot of people. I. See it all the time when I advise people to and I even use the word adjustment I don't even bring in the word change because they hear that word they automatically just tense up and you make some minor adjustments here and there and like okay I can do that and. I'm with you on that. It's so many people are afraid of because they think it's this big job in for some people it might be it might be really transformational for them to go through the work because they have to look within and sometimes people are afraid to look within because. You know we're our own worst enemies in many ways, and especially now during this pandemic, where we do have an opportunity to make some adjustments or changes in our lives that make us better off once we get to the next normal. So many people feel paralyzed and they don't want to take the necessary steps that they need to do in order to get to the goals and the things that they want in life. You know it's not personal. The brain hates it because that's how we. Ourselves to survive and our cultures and the stories we share our really our conversations are our reality. The way the brain works is it takes data informs a story about it, and once you have that story, you think that's reality. It's just a perception of it and you're always a hero in that story. So you only see the things that a firm believe to be true and the line I liked to say is the only truth is there's no truth but once you have that wonderful perception of reality, your brain is very happy. Keeping it everything around you has changed and it's no longer often, and so now the question is, how do I get you to change your story and how do you visualize a new or a new business and really come to grips with the changes that are taking place? I often tell my clients think if this is a play, you really know hamlet very well the tomorrow we have to play, Macbeth what would you do? You find the script or you'd write the script and then you begin to rehearse the script and then you'd have. A director to help you figure out where to stand on stage but we're trying to do that today in a moment you know used to say, if you want to change have a crisis or create one little I know cove it was going to give me my crisis and I tell people don't waste the crisis I have clients who have been trying to do something for three years and all of a sudden. I can do I wanted to go after that market and I can't tell you how easy it is now because everybody. Is unsettled and unsure and all the certainty that we want to protect ourselves is gone and so in uncertainty you know don't waste a crisis and so as we help companies change to your point, they do resist until they realized maybe this is a crisis that you have to address. Now, the question is, what's the new script? How do I play it and I appreciate that humans resist because it's scary new fell we'll have my job. How do I do this my business grow all the uncertainties but yesterday is tomorrow and we are futurists. Are podcasts was ranked in the top twenty futurist podcasts but humans are futures. We have to see you tomorrow to lift today, and that's what we begin to help them do. So as your listeners are listening in thinking about the story, you believe to be your truth and what are you going to have to do to change it and then change it manager mind. So it's exciting times for us. We're having a great time lots of customers and lots of interesting work to do.

Bad News For Prince Andrew As New Witness Comes Forward

"Let's move onto Prince Andrew can remind us how he started this year. He had been basically sacked from the royal family which we take subduing. He was essentially stripped of all his royal duties after his completely disastrous Newsnight interview y have you decided to talk now? because. There is no good time. To Talk, about Mr Epstein and. All things associated in Andrews Newsnight interview his big defense really aside from the fact that he of how they can't sweat and he's a big patron of the pizza. Express woking is that he didn't really know Jeffrey Epstein he claims he only knew him through his friend Glenn, bloom it through his girlfriend. Back, in nineteen, ninety nine, who an I'd known her since she. In the UK this is all Remember that it was his girlfriend. That was the key element in this he was the. Plus. One to some extent in an expert. You through a birthday party for since girlfriend then Maxwell at Sandringham. No shooting weekend a shooting weeks straightforward straightforward for choosing weekend. Despite the fact you know Jeffrey Epstein was at the Palace went to Epstein. Manson had dinner for him. He stayed with Epstein because because Andrew just couldn't find a central Manhattan hotel he's very convenient epsteins mentioned it was a convenient place to stay. I mean I've gone through this in my mind so many times. At the end of the day. with the benefit of all the hindsight that one can have. It was definitely the wrong thing to do is you say that interview was a disaster foundry and he was forced to withdraw from his rural Gt's I'm imagining heat hopes that would draw a line under the whole thing for him but then in July galet maxwell was arrested. The risks are simply too great. The words of the judge refusing bail this evening to maximum the one time girlfriend an alleged accomplice of the sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, might saw pleaded not guilty the hearing by video link on charges she helped recruit and groom minors as young as fourteen. So she was arrested in her strange though Bolthole and a few weeks later, a bunch of documents unsealed from a two thousand fifteen civil action brought against her by Virginia. Robert Scott Free and price price whose name pops up again it's Jews You know a lot of the allegations in these documents were already known but what is new is the allegation that? Forced Virginia Robert Scott Free to have sex with Prince Andrew as a way to gather incriminating evidence against him. And then on top of that, this month of witnesses come forward claiming to have seen the Duke of York, at trump nightclub on the night he insisted in the Newsnight interview that he was at Pizza Express in woking why would you remember that? So specifically, why would you remember a pizza best birthday in being because going to pizza express in working is an unusual thing for me to do. So he obviously hit denies everything but the circle is definitely tightening around Andrew. US. Law Enforcement has said repeatedly they want to talk to him that he has been cooperative a war of words as I'm sure you know has broken out between Prince Andrew and the US authorities investigating sex offender Jeffrey. Exiting The prince claims that he has offered to help that inquired eat city times but this is something the American prosecutors deny effectively calling him a liar the palace hopefully insisted this is untrue and US law enforcement has repeated it. So this is where we are at the moment. Do you think this puts more pressure on Andrew to cooperate with the investigation? Me The idea of any member of the royal family cooperating Larry's but yes, I mean absolutely. But I mean the fact that he was saying such stuff in that interview emily weightless without realizing how terrible the sounded I mean just shows he has no sense of consequences for his actions. I'm Jay his sin said, he regrets his ill-judged Association with Epstein. But as you point out, these aren't incredibly serious allegations and yet everybody feels like his story that dozen attract as many column, Inches Harry, and Meghan. Let's I think this is the thing when talking about the role families so much tension and I've just done two is focused on Harry Megan and the stupid decisions they make in his make it actually lady Macbeth is very telling for example, the mail there's certain Cole missed the male who I'm not gonNA pollute podcast listener's ears with his name, but he is completely obsessive. Meghan. Markle. Interest. Rates. Endless combs about her I. Don't like to own Andrew or something Sierra. Let's just bear in mind that actually the royal to really be focused on is Andrew

Former Congresswoman Katie Hill Does a Postmortem on a Lost Congressional Seat

"When the news is bad? I know that it is tempting for me to tune out but I also know that sometimes examining bad news and figuring out how to learn from it is a good thing so with that semester. Monaco and I are starting this week. Show with the conversation with former California Representative Katie Hill. Katie resigned from her seat last October and in a special election last week a Republican one bomber. So where do we go from here? Let's ask Katie are welcome Katie Hill. Welcome back to hysteria. We're so happy to have you back. Glad to be back. Thank you first of all. How are you doing man That's like a loaded question. I feel like I'm you know I'm I'm okay. The results the election were pretty horrible. You know in a way it was of what we were expecting. But you obviously didn't ever want and at you know it's just like one thing on top another in life in in figuring a way to get up in Russia yourself off in new forward was I was again when I was a kid. Reverses a still own a horse and the biggest thing that you were taught was being you fall off you get back up and get right back on and that's just kind of against what length is so drilling down into that trauma? A little bit last week was was the special election in California's twenty fifth for everyone listening. What happens and were you surprised when you say what happened do you mean why did we lose or yeah yeah why Jillette. Why did why did why did she was. Yeah well I think the biggest chapter honestly is just people in a special election. Democrats don't show up and you've got the rented. Republican base. That was particularly riled up because of my scandal and excited the opportunity to take a seat back. I mean that was that was literally what they were plotting. They were trying to you. Know to find something they. They found something. They exploited it. They got me to resign and this officers their opportunity to take back. The seat they felt was stolen from them in the first place remember. It hadn't been held by a Republican ever in its current form and they really did not think that it's possible for someone like me. Let alone any Democrats there So I think that they really rallied around this opportunity and from what we know they actually did some very despite the fact that you hear them complain all the time about ballot harvesting. They had some very organized efforts around ballot sting and Them for figuring it out. Because like you know that's to me it's about helping people be a but the churches were really mobilized in getting people to providing drop off centers. And saying that they're gonNA mail to use of swing by the church in you know do it in your car or whatever and we just didn't have something like baton. I think you can also partly attributed to the fact that Democrats were pretty disenchanted by things right. Like you're GONNA be really really frustrated works so barred and felt like you were. Finally I heard over a felt like you were finally represented and have all go away. So quickly is is really disenchanting. Should okay so there was a special election in California's twenty fifth special action in Wisconsin. Seventh both know that these are anecdotal elections in every district is different but you can still kind of extrapolate things on a maybe on a larger scale from this like. Do you think that Democrats should see what happened in your former seat special election as a wakeup call I do. I think that it shows that you remember mine was one of the Houghton quote safest swing seats right. Hillary Clinton when by seven. I want by nine. This isn't one of the seats that should have at risk. So what it means is that you know. Depending on what things are looking like November especially depending on the energy that's coming from rate than district's length. The ones that we flicked that were that were ones that that trump won by sixteen points are really really wants. We need to watch out for so we should give up or stop paying attention to the house just because the Senate is looking like it's within reach or obviously presidency so that to me. The biggest of all first and foremost the second is that as we are adapting to this Nalen strategy. How we doing that right? Field is what has been our strongest most important. Get out the vote effort right and that's modified I don't take. You should give up on it all together. I think they're Balkans Altogether they have they have a different base of people who they can go soo and again reliably that will reliably answer their phones that they can you get to things like drop off ballots churches. But we're GONNA have to modify field programs to to frankly make sure people know how vote by mail. When they have many many of them have never done it before especially in these lower turnout areas of to begin with which are usually the most. Democrats held Katie. Beyond even just in. How do we re engage the Democrats that helped you win by nine points when now they're also facing the pandemic childcare challenges on employment and things that are just like so catastrophic question? I think I am hopeful that the loss actually was a wakeup call for a lot of people might have thought like while the seat will be fine. Now they're like okay. I have really have to bow part of I mean honestly. I think that the the district itself is democratic leaning enough now that if we get to turn out that you know is usually expected in November election. I think she will win. And we saw we saw it happened with the ossoff special in Lucy. Macbeth one in general. I think we're GONNA see that in this case but it still. You know it's something that can't be taken for granted in terms of the support that I had the volunteers mobilized rabbit. I think that's that's going to be the same thing right is how do you figure out ways of ways of getting involved? That may not mean. Move leaving your house And how do we get people excited about it? Especially when the Senate is in play in California and the The obviously dilatory votes are going to be there for Joe Biden. No matter what so. I think I think it has to be like maybe you know maybe the Gee let's get so excited about meeting the seat back because like that. That as it's more like Oh you fuckers. Hello and stand up and what's ours okay. You said the word motherfuckers. Let's expand on that a little bit because we we chatted briefly about this About this race and how it personal it was to you and how personal it was considering the person who ended up winning the seat. Can you talk a little bit about the people who helped promote Christy Smith opponent short so the first person the first slew of images that came out was through the publicly came out was through red? Sti His enemies are images of You. That were released without your consent without taking taken without your consent. Got It and the only person that could have done. That was my accent. Spin obvious denied it. And so it's a it. So that started at Red State. The person who published those who who was the investigative reporter has been a longtime Republican operatives in the region who writes I guess on side. Honestly don't really know what I know that writing as is not a full-time thing for her and she had worked for one of my previous owners. She worked for Steve Night in the past and the day after the day. After I resigned she endorsement ARSIA There were a number of other people who were involved and again. This is information as circling through like facebook groups and drew a the random people that are on the ground in. It's not it's not like a niffer court case starting to like that bitch so many of the people who were supporting my sem from the beginning. We're the ones that need new. Had the photos and some of that is actually on logs. There's still posted out there. A Joe Messina. And things like that so I think For me that that was the biggest thing right like it was misleading. That my favorite before all of this came

Nolan #3 - Insomnia / Blow the Man Down / True History of the Kelly Gang

"From Chicago. This is film spotting. I'm Adam Kanner and I'm Josh. Larsen can't be easy to keep working after three days. No sleep to keep focus. You're seeing things yet. Cause little flashes tricks alight that's Robin Williams with Al Pacino in Christopher Nolan's insomnia from two thousand and two as the follow up to his mind. Bending breakout hit. Memento insomnia struck some at the time as a frustratingly straightforward thriller. This week we continue our Nolan who've review with a fresh look plus we'll have thoughts on three new releases all available online more. Can I get up Pacino ahead? Unfilled SPOTTING Welcome to film spotting Josh. The theaters are closed. But the movies keep coming at least if you know where to look this week. We've got reviews of three new releases. Include ONE. That's definitely a golden brick. Were the debut. That's the cozy noir thriller. Blow the man down a feature debut set in Downey's main and the down under set the true history of the Kelly gang from director. Justin Kurt Sel and the high school set Sela and the spades one. You caught up with Josh Ross. Going to continue our Christopher Nolan who've review with two thousand? Two's insomnia the black sheep. Maybe of the Nolan filmography. We'll see if it does deserve that reputation later in the show first though let's talk some new movies for a change including that Australian import true history of the Kelly gang mother soldier pan. You cost me you. Can that back a child? It is already traveling. Full tilt toward the men are would become. That's from the trailer for True History of the Kelly gang which is available to rent ondemand this weekend. The director is Justin Kerr. Zal who previously made twenty eleven the snow town murders than in two thousand fifteen. He did Macbeth. Which starred Michael Faster and Marion Cotillard? All three of them re teamed for two thousand sixteen assassin's creed now. Kelly gang is set in colonial Australia. Where Kelly and his group of anarchists violently rebel against their British rulers nineteen. Seventeen George MCI plays Ned Kelly. The film also stars Russell. Crowe Nicholas Holt Thomasson. Mackenzie and Charlie Hunnam so strong. Cast their Adam. You're able to get an early look at this one before. It's on demand release. Did the cast live up to. Its Promise House the film in general some of it definitely did in terms of the cast. This is actually my first. Kerr Zal film. Haven't seen any of the other three that you mentioned despite the fact that Michael Fast Bender has been in those two that you mentioned and I'm always down for Good Shakespeare Adaptation. I can't compare obviously this film the Kelly Gang to his adaptation of Macbeth specifically but there is a lot of the Scottish play in his telling of Ned Kelly. Se Davis from our beloved. The Baba Duke plays his mother in this film and she is not someone to cross. She's domineering she's vengeful. It's born from years of oppression as a woman and as an Irish woman living under English rule in Australia. You hear her in the trailer. Seda a young Ned. You're a man. Now you go out and show the world. This isn't a gentle mother's encouragement. It's an order and like Macbeth himself. As ned gets closer to his fate the matter he gets and that unhinged hallucinatory spirit is. What colonel taps into visually think about the late nineteenth century? We get in. John Hill coats the proposition as a counterpoint. This is not that at all. This is realism clashing with fantasy to the point where there are times in certain sequences and shots. Josh especially a recurring motif of a man riding a horse. That feels more like more door than the Bush way outside Melbourne. And so I've dropped Macbeth. I've dropped Lord of the rings throw in the assassination of Jesse James by the Coward. Robert Ford and the pop aesthetic of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Except with punk instead and you get some sense of what watching the true history of the Kelly. Gang is really like which may sound really amazing to you and other people. Yeah I'm I'm hooked so far. Yeah it's definitely a lot and honestly it was a little bit too much for me. Wants so much to be this fiery sneer. That doesn't conform do conventional biography and it's full of these big ideas about colonialism and storytelling and masculinity and challenging gender and sexual norms. The gang the Kelly gang actually wears dresses for me. It's just all too much of a performance of assault to really embrace and actually MCI is part of it. He's a really intriguing presence and has an unsettling physicality that he definitely brings to this role. A presence was kind of all he was in nineteen seventeen. That's kind of by the design of that film and I haven't read anything about his performance but I wouldn't be shocked to learn that he went really method here that he he went so deep. And as I said there's there's an intensity to it there's a real physicality to it but he's burrowed so deep into it. So deep into Ned Kelly psyche that he never emerges for me and I can appreciate the audacity of what Kerr's doing here and his. I our first shot of young. Ned actually is him peering through a slit in his makeshift home while his mother is engaged in a sex act with a paying customer. That's a British officer played by Hunnam and then later at the end it is big showdown with authorities. He's wearing iron over his head for protection. With the sliver is is that matches that exact same point of view so crucial knows what he's doing absolutely and he does have a really game cast Russell. Crowe shows up for a little bit in this movie. And there's a lot of fun as outlaw. Who Basically pays for? He buys a young Ned as an indentured servant to teach him the trade. And I really like Nicholas Holt. In this movie. He shows up maybe about midway through as a really charming despicable and entitled English constable. Who BEFRIENDS NED in the family? Until the family decides that they're not going to subjugate themselves to him like he expects everyone to do so some juicy fund performances here and crystals definitely doing allot as I said in terms of the filmmaking sounds like there might even be a little bit of animal kingdom in there too with the mother son Dynamic and of course the Australians setting so I. I'm intrigued by those comparisons. We'll we'll have to see if the catch up with if it works a little bit better for me. The True History of the Kelly gang is available to rent on demand right. Now the new one you caught up with Josh is called Sela and the spades the directing debut of Theresa Poh. It had its debut back in January at Sundance and it came to Amazon prime. This past weekend in your letterbox review you wrote any movie that mixes the DNA of mean girls. Brick and schooldays has my attention. We're all over the place with our references in this show so far. Tell me more. Yeah this this could be a lazy short and in some ways doing this exercise. But I think it's it is really helpful in this case because those are great films with distinct styles each trying to do something that maybe you hadn't quite seen before done in that way and mixing it all together is really exciting. That also puts a ton of pressure on a relatively small film like Sela and the spades and so I don't know if it's the sort of pressure this movie can entirely bare but I like that. All of these elements are in here that the basic scenario is selling. The speights takes place at an elite boarding school and we follow the illicit dealings and also the the relationships among various student factions there called and each of these factions. They're essentially like criminal gangs. So Sela played by Lovey Simone. She runs the drug-dealing spades. And you know there are maybe some Macbeth Lady Macbeth specifically comparisons to make here in her ambition and the way she holds grip on power. She does take an underclassmen under her wing. But as we come to learn you know it may not be the most altruistic reasons that underclassmen played by Celeste O'Connor now both of those performances are really strong by Simone and O'Connor There are some good supporting turns to. I could see this being one of those smaller. First films where two or three of the actors in them and this happened with mean girls as well right pop up in later films and you really see what what great talents. They have their There's also the whole criminal element calls on brick of course that this is going on among high schoolers beneath the adults is. It's kind of amazing. How little the adults have to play in in this world And then there are some really striking flourishes by PLO as director. And here's where some of the the school days Spike Lee school days comparisons come in because Sela is also the head of the spirit squad for the school and they have a direct address to the camera routine just about what. It's like to be a seventeen year old

It's The End Of The World! (Again

"In the village of Giddy Shem Devon England in the eighteenth century lived a woman named Joanna. South caught southpaw became convinced that she had supernatural powers and began selling seals of the Lord essentially tickets to get into heaven which people bought. She declared that she was the woman of the apocalypse as foretold in the Bible and that she would give birth to the new Messiah on October nineteenth eighteen forty one despite the fact that she was sixty four years old. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. We are living through a more uncertain than usual time right now. I wouldn't say it's the end of the world but others might and half history is rife with people who claim to have been told or to worked out when the end of days is coming. The list on Wikipedia is twenty four page downs. And that's really only focusing on Judeo Christian. Prophecies everyone from peasant girls two months to the mathematician who popularized the use of the decimal point. How Theory Cotton Mather? The influential Puritan Minister who played a decisive role in the Salem witch trials proclaimed in sixteen ninety one that Doomsday would occur in sixteen ninety seven basing the date on events that were current to him that he interpreted as fulfillment of Biblical prophecy when sixteen. Ninety-seven passed uneventfully. Mother changed his forecast. First to seventeen o six than seventeen sixteen and finally seventeen seventeen. Mother didn't make any more between seventeen seventeen and his death in seventeen twenty eight but he was still certain that the end was near Jonas Wendell along with other adventist preachers predicted. The Second Coming of Christ would occur between eighteen. Seventy three and eighteen seventy four after the prediction didn't bear out Nelson Bar. You're of follower of Wendell reinterpreted prediction to mean that. Jesus had returned in eighteen. Seventy four but he was invisible that does make it harder to disprove all grant you then. There was mother. Shipton the witch of York a fascinating blend of historical figure and embellished character. Born Ursula South the older and a thunderstorm in a cave in fourteen eighty eight to a teenage mother who refused to name. The father mother Shipton looked every bit like the iconic which would he skin hunched posture. Hooked nose the works. She made a number of predictions all of them in verse like Shakespeare's Weird Sisters in Macbeth. She said to have predicted Henry. The eighths disillusion of the monasteries the great fire of London the reign of Elizabeth I and even possibly the invention of airplanes on the telephone but the first written version of her predictions didn't come out until eighty years after her death and some of the authors have admitted to adding to what she supposedly said. So we're not one hundred percent certain if mother Shipton really said the world to an end shall come in eighteen hundred and eighty one but we can be fairly certain that it didn't the cave in which she was born is now a tourist attraction along with the nearby petrifying well items placed in the well are said to turn to stone. And that's more of a loose interpretation than an outright fable. The water in the well has a very high mineral content and those minerals will attach themselves to anything in the water making. It look like the object is turning to stone. Bona snacked the witches in Macbeth referred to usually as the weird sisters but were originally called the wayward sisters meaning. Good women who lost their way and been seduced by the allure of Magic Doomsday Predictions. Could come from the highest offices in the land. But that didn't make them anymore. True Pope Sylvester the second game pope in nine ninety nine seat with the auspicious-sounding date of the year one thousand looming so Vesta in a number of other Christian leaders foretold the coming of Jesus at the turn of the Millennium and many people believed it like really believed there were riots in the streets. Thousands of Christians fled to the holy city of Jerusalem and many attended what was expected to be particularly interesting midnight. Mass at Saint Peter's Basilica on New Year's Eve when the morning of January first on and it was clear the world had not ended semester and the other Christian leaders revised their predictions. Have you picked up on that trend yet? If Judgment Day hadn't kicked off on the anniversary of Jesus's Birth. It must do on the anniversary of his death. So so Lester. The second declared the world would end in ten thirty three but he was already fifty four years old and sure enough. Didn't have to hear any gainsaying when the apocalypse didn't come the second time because he'd been dead for thirty years a century later pope innocent. The third had a less obvious and markedly less nice reason for his end. Time Prophecy innocent blamed the Muslims Christians and Muslims have had kind of assorted past and innocent viewed Muslims as agents of Satan to his mind. The apocalypse would occur six hundred and sixty six years after the founding of Islam. Which would put it in the year. Twelve eighty four. He too died well before he could see how wrong he was predicting. The end of the world requires perseverance. If at first you don't succeed try try again. You've got to stick with it. Like the founder of the Worldwide Church of God Herbert Armstrong along with his sons Richard and Garner Armstrong picked up quite a following even before claiming that the world would end in nineteen thirty. Six and only members of his church would be saved the Great Depression and the dust bowl probably made it easy for people to believe that our collective ticket was about to get punched Armstrong then turned his sights to nineteen forty-three where the second war to end all wars lent credence to his doomsday claims when life settled into the post war normal Armstrong amended his prediction to Nineteen seventy-two a significant margin of error.

Martin believed that aliens from the Planet Clarion had beamed messages into her brain informing her that a. Masoud flood would soon destroy the planet. Her prophecies attracted a small group of followers including the doctor who called themselves seekers. Many of the seekers quit. Their jobs. Sold their belongings and removed any medal from their bodies which Martin said would be essential for boarding the alien ship. That would take them away. They gathered at Martin's home on Christmas.

Pop Music In The Age Of Covid

"Atty drowned himself in wine. That song came out about a year ago. When you were curly obsessing over the crazy times we were living in then. What new meaning does a song like that have today? I was thinking about that. Actually I was like I. I like that song even more now but I I was really writing at. Moore's a political thing and now it's it's just a more universal thing I mean this is like the black plague sort of thing and people online. I've been reading like there's a theory that Shakespeare wrote Macbeth and King Lear under for like eighteen months or something and so there's certainly a lot of time for at least creative people to buckle down and try to make something new but yeah we could all use some peace of mind and you know I actually have been taking some time out of the day to find peace like meditate or try to meditate. I'm not very good at it but especially the first especially those first few days of no school as just like I need something and it's not as not drugs or drink and I just needed some quiet time Does even five minutes was helpful. The amount of news about Corona viruses. Absolutely crazy so it's it's nice to put the phone down sometimes so the viruses obviously changed how you can work with other people and how. You're kind of self isolated. Does it change your priorities as a storyteller and what you want to talk about and sing about yeah. I mean I don't know but as a storyteller yet I don't know if I've quite been like oh now I know what to write about but as a human being and I think a lot of people probably feel a bit of this is a human being you kind of understand life in a different way that we haven't had to deal with in this country like we've seen people in Syria waiting in long queues for rice from the back of a truck. And we've never really had to do that here at least in my lifetime so going to the grocery store the past few weeks has been eye opening for sure and realizing how good we had it and how good we still have. We Have Electricity Water Internet net flicks all that stuff. I mean. We're pretty comfortable here. Imagine if all that was wiped away yeah I mean. There's a bigger emphasis in my life on my family on joy. I guess whatever however you get joy but just making the most of life and I think this is you know teaching a lot of people lessons as to what is really important in their life and what they would spend their time doing. And that's the silver lining. I guess you could say be. Beeman is a singer and songwriter. You can find his music at Beeman DOT com. That's B. H. I. M. A. N. DOT COM B. S. We go out.

Overconfidence: The Icarus Paradox

"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb. And I'm Joe McCormick and we're back with part two of our discussion of overconfidence. That's right If you did not listen to the previous episode do go back and listen to that episode. Because we're GONNA lay the groundwork we're going to discuss overconfidence. Hubris and mythology in human histories. And then get into the psychology of it and what various psychological studies have revealed and continue to reveal about the nature of overconfidence. And how we can. Divide this sort of amorphous concept of overconfidence out into categories that can be more easily studied and understood. That's right now in the last episode one of the main things we talked about was this huge new review of the scientific literature on something known as the better than average effect. Which is the tendency for people to rate themselves as better than average with respect to their peers on all kinds of stuff One classic example is that something like ninety. Three percent of people think they are a better than average driver. And so if you're if you're listening to this as you drive is back on the road and make sure you use the turn signals principle. Stay save lives turn signals. Let other drivers and the districts. No what you intend to do. Even if you think you're a great driver drive like your less good than you are and it will make you a better driver drive like you can't see all the other cars and around you because sometimes you cannot drive like you're driving a murder weapon because potentially you are. It's quite true. Are Now one of the things we talked about it in the last episode was A paper from two thousand seventeen by dawn Amorin Derek. Shots called the three faces of overconfidence which Which actually broke. Overconfidence down into three distinct categories of of bias or misperception and And we talked about those a little bit last time. We're going to be exploring more of what that paper had to say. And it's critiques of overconfidence. Research specifically with reference. To these three types of overconfidence and has a brief refresher. The three types are overestimation over placement and over precision overestimation is thinking that you're better than you are and this would be with reference to some kind of You know objective measure out in the world so if you think you are taller than you are if you think that you can jump higher than you can if you think that you would get a better score on a test than you actually could. That's overestimation the next one over placement is similar but instead it's comparing yourself with other people so the better than average effect would be an example of over placement. It's you know thinking you are better than average compared to your peers at some task or it would be thinking that you know that you work harder than other people or thinking that you are smarter than other people of course with the. If it's overconfidence. Meaning that those are not actually accurate assessments and then finally the other one would be over precision which is being too sure that you know the truth Again this this might be called EPIs- stomach over-confidence it's just being too certain that your beliefs are correct now to get into more and chances paper from two thousand seventeen one of the questions that they address. What actually drives some of these different Effects as as they are manifested so they they start with overestimation what causes us to say think we would get a better score on a test to than we do or to think we have more money in the bank than we do a common answer that people give to this is the idea of wishful thinking. It would feel good if this were true. Therefore I believe it right the authors don't think that this Explanation is very plausible and they offer several problems with it and we can interrogate these. Maybe disagree with them as we go on but first of all they say you know self delusion is demonstrably maladaptive for example a tendency toward wishful thinking about the safety of kissing sharks. So with tongue is is not a trait that the environment will tend to select for people overconfident about their academic abilities. We'll tend not to study and actually do worse people who believe themselves invulnerable. We'll take risks that sometimes get them killed. This might seem obvious but there is actually plenty of research on this. I mean people who are over confident about their abilities. Do face a lot of downsides when those abilities are put to the test right. Yeah I mean one example from literature that comes to mind is that of Macbeth who believes himself protected by prophecy? And of course snuffs it exactly but then again I think okay so it is true that these people will face a Lotta downside but then again people do engage in self destructive self deluded behavior all the time. This is a common feature of human life. Yeah I mean for instance. We were just recently talking about Sepo Affect Our our movie episode. We're talking about the fly and a about the possibility that the placebo effect is is basically due to You know this innate tendency toward self delusion that may very. Well be adaptive in at least in this scenario where yeah we we benefit from being able to believe something is going to work and And experiencing at least a small physical benefit from it like a small cured of benefit from it. And then you know I also can't help but think that you know self-delusion entails far more than just over-confidence it also entails. All manner of paranoia and there is a strong case for the adaptive nature of say making type one error in cognition a false positive the belief that the Russell in the tall grass is that of a tiger. When it's not because of you make the type to air. You're more likely to be eaten by the Tiger. Right right yeah. Having accurate information about the world is actually very useful and having inaccurate information can kill you. Yeah but but I'm not so much you know trying to disagree with the maladaptive Self-delusion argument That we mentioned earlier but but rather you know to point out. The human experiences is rife with self delusion. So might a dash of overconfidence. Even in the form of overestimation serve do balance out this alchemy of of our perception of reality for example. Have a singer in granted cariocas very low stakes right but it could involve social embarrassment which you could fear would lead to ostracism. And that's actually one of the most powerful negative motivators human behavior right but again curiosity is also one of these things. Where like sometimes? It's cool to do it badly. So this is a perfect example. But so you have a carrier. Karaoke singer then imbibe in a little liquid courage before taking the microphone as most Kariuki participants are are want to do but yeah they they get a little liquid courage because they know they don't have the greatest voice in the world and then they feel a little awkward getting up there but but they they know that a little bit of booze induced. Overconfidence might help matters. I think you're exactly right there and this is funny to start here because I think while the authors make tons of good points this is one of the ones they make that I might disagree with the most. I think that there are antagonist adaptations in human behavior. One pressure might favor having an accurate picture of the world. Assessing things in a clear and accurate way while across pressure favor self-deception especially self-deception in the form of overconfidence. For example. You might be more likely to survive if you have accurate assessments of your own abilities but you might be more likely to take big risks with potentially big rewards if you overestimate your abilities Or Self Delusional. Overconfidence could be adaptive. Because it helps us persuade or even deceive other people about are worth. Yeah old ultimately you have to believe in yourself you know other people are not going to believe in you for you right. I mean we. We talked in the last episode about how. It's probably not a coincidence that you really often notice overconfidence in people who occupy high status leadership roles. Right how did they get there? I mean it's not hard to imagine. The overconfidence helped them get to that point. Yeah it's Something it's a fine sometimes terrifying exercise to like if you if you engage with people like this and then when you realize Oh. They're just really overconfident. They don't they're they're not to say they're not skilled but when you realize here is they're not sometimes they're not but sometimes you realize. Oh there. There is this gap between ability. And and and what? They're they're saying they're going to deliver on what they are. Estimating the future will consist of. Yeah I mean I. It is kind of shocking. How often in life? You will suddenly come to a realization that you know the boss. Or the leader whatever's main skill is B. S. ing. Yeah like that they can just go out there and wing it in a way that you would be too timid in reserve to do right now this idea of the accurate assessments playing into our. You know our own abilities i. I couldn't help but think of the film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid scenario because really as it relates to two specific points in the film one is the the whole. Would you make that jump if you didn't have to scenario where they're being tracked? They're being hunted and they've come to this cliff overlooking this river and they realized that if they jump if they jump off this cliff may land in that river and they don't die they'll get away because the stakes are such that those pursuing them will not follow them. They will not make that jump if they don't need to. So so there's there's that and then at the very end there's kind of a going out the old fashioned way. Guns a blazing scenario where corner. They're going to slowly be killed and they decided to just go for it to just bust out shooting and just

Michael Bloomberg — shiny new pebble or fool's gold?

"When the former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg decided not to run for the US President in twenty sixteen. He said it was because he was unsure of whether America was ready to be run by a white white billionaire mogul. Well that's the Bloomberg could have another go. This worried that there's no clear Democrat candidate to beat Donald Trump will tell us more uh. La Bureau chief collateral Rabelo a very warm. Welcome back to the program. Collage tell us about Bloomberg and his bid. How serious is this is because by all accounts since two thousand and eight that has not been a presidential election without speculation that might Michael Bloomberg might run? Yes and what's important to get right here. Is that this move by Michael. Bloomberg doesn't mean that he's necessarily definitely running now at this point he's just keeping his options Sion's open. He's ensuring that whenever he eventually makes that decision he is allowed to run if he chooses to do so so hard that he has filing the paperwork work that is needed while he has filed the paperwork that is needed to become a candidates in the Democratic primary in Alabama which is a state that had the earliest filing wiling at deadline. His Adviser Stole The New York Times at the end of last week. That Bloomberg will decide for sure whether Ron within a matter of days and not weeks except now up there are a couple of things here. That are interesting I is how late this announcement is coming. And the electoral calendar there are fewer than and three months to go before the Iowa caucus and even since the mid nineteen seventies. The latest a potential nominee has ever launched his or. Her presidential campaign was by August of the year before the election than we are now in November if Bloomberg decides to make this one official before the end of the month and then as you mentioned in your question we need to ask why this change If you call him a Bloomberg announced back in March this year that he would not run for president and now it all seems to point executive that fact that he's worried about The Way Democratic primary is unfolding out so far and even as early as last month he had mentioned that he would perhaps consider a run. If Joe Biden. This is the former vice president Joe. Oh Biden decided to drop out of the race but all in all. If Bloomberg does end up running he'll have to scramble to make it to the debate stage so that people beyond his supporters know about his agenda and what he represents and we also need to take into account the growing unpopularity of billionaires among the left wing of the Democratic Party. The party does need to question whether or not Bloomberg's Ron. Ron will do more harm than good at this point in the race when the ultimate goal is to eventually defeat Donald Trump so there are worries that he actually him standing up against is going to split the center. But let's look at the other candidates on where we are with the polls Joe Biden's in trouble which is a huge issue The the campaigns have Bernie Sanders and particularly Elizabeth. Warren are not going that well actually Bloomberg has repeatedly attacked Elizabeth Warren. So he's coming into a failed which is already rather bad tempered and and not really putting a strong candidate. It isn't tape no and he is exactly as you described with the Bloomberg entering during the race. And we're ignoring a big factor. Here which is there's an argument that a lot of people say he is not a Democrat. He is more of a Republican than Democrat. But that's a whole different conversation but if we take into account Michael Bloomberg entering the race now the center of the party disappears and the problem. That's that's the Democrats have been facing. which is you have candidates on? Two extreme ends of the political agenda within the same party with Bloomberg entering during this. That divide was only deepen you will. You will have the same party Eh. One of the country's most known billionaires regardless of the fact that he has of course Experienced running public office running the biggest city in the country in New York City but he is one of the most known billionaires to and then you have on the other end. Candidates are advocating for a huge tax on people such Just as Mike Bloomberg so it will it regardless of who the candidate ends up being. You take the risk of eliminating a lot of the voters Not necessarily to vote for trump perhaps not vote at all because it seems like the identity of the Democratic Party does not exist and that was the main issue in two thousand sixteen and it just seems like a repetition ministry again which is a shame if you're a Democrat because actually last week Votes in Virginia and Kentucky seemed to indicate that in principle the Democrats are on the the the the recovery. Oh yes if you look at the results from us. We Cut The conclusion is that the Democrats are on a winning streak in Kentucky Talkie as Democrats. Andy here defeated The Republican Governor Matt Bevin and this was by a very thin margin and for over a day a Bevan refused to even concede. We're talking about five thousand votes. That decided this result wishes shows just how polarized it is right here. This is state up trump won by a margin of thirty points in two thousand sixteen so it just shows how the tide released turning and of course in many ways. It's victory is indeed significant particularly. Because you know Bevan ran a national campaign Consistently linking himself to president trump and not only. The trump makes several several statements supporting him. He even held a last minute rally with Macbeth into former Kentucky governor in the net for to ensure this reelection that now we we know didn't happen and if you look at Virginia the Democrats should take it as a big victory for the party This is the first time since nineteen ninety-three three that the Democrats won control of both chambers in the state legislature and governor and this has is allowing them to kind of redraw the the states legal boundaries legislative boundaries after the census are happening next year and it can help pave the way to solidify Virginia Jinya as a blue state from now on color. Avello on the line from Los Angeles thank you very much indeed for joining us on the

FC please welcome welcome the great most danny must how're you doing great i'm very excited to talk about one of my favorite veto competitions BB comics i'm very happy happy that they kind of did a back to basics thing and copied the same competition from big brother sixteen when they first did become a throwback a throwback a throwback robak for the bbc comex classic edition and a throwback to podcast i remember listening to fondly on my way back from mini rene apple when was puja and melissa were on a together many wednesdays ends days ago here he is back on the podcast this time with me

kidding very excited to be here and very excited to talk bb colleagues okay well very excited fun veto competition and we will talk through the looming not since lebron james puja has there been such a highly anticipated decision of what will happen on thursday night we'll find out live when we are doing our show from the SPCA theater here in new york city i'm out on strong island right now much like nicole and looking forward to our big live show on a thursday night but a lot of talk through you could use hashtag RJ scott saint-pierre is standing by to get us those questions later on in the show melissa how are you doing i'm doing great this was a great episode well a very very exciting veto results i i was so excited when i saw the news that call it won't be joe it's honestly like all day long she had been saying i have have to win this i like i need to do this for myself and for cliff and then she would literally promise to like cliffs family that she was going to win this she's like i'm i'm going to do it i'm gonna win it and most of the time when people say that on the show you're like okay are a sure you are alike that's probably not going to happen but she did it i mean that was insane she did such great job she smoked them i mean she got such a better time it was very impressive it's impressive run here here for nicole and i don't know if i have the big brother player sorta that at my fingertips that i could say is the parallel for this run that nicole is on the only person i can think of who's had a quick change in both capability to take it all at the end and also turn on the complex after having not is paris from be began six that is the only person i can compare her to it's been amazing it's been an amazing not even one week six days for nicole a where she was going into that double and where she is now we're seeing her in a whole new light on we're talking about an whole night and as a nicole fan as someone who was assaulting dear nicole has been a fan and ecole pretty nice to see i will take yeah let's say it's been such an impressive run where sure the odds on favourite to win right which is crazy i mean honestly think about just like the roundtable from last week and where we were basically saying like she's got to win something or else she's never gonna win this there's no way because the main argument going into the end was well well nicole hasn't done anything for these ago right exactly that's the thing is it just it everything is different now i feel like everyone's account nicole nicole hose the winner she's coming into the stretch like melissa draft whereas like a couple of weeks whoever wants their draft sucks so i hope nicole pulls it out because she is the only remaining person who may draft you know i it's been such an impressive turnaround greenlee i'm so happy and mila side you have to commend you on your draft the incredible job to land mccall in brown it was all me i i knew she was going to be the last one i knew that i was gonna get her it was all knee just to reset that was that there were two people left on the board jess and nicole i had the fifteenth pick whoever i didn't pick was going to go to melissa and i said boy gesture nicole nicole lock your parents in the basement i'd like to river but it just seems like a more normal person and the call i can't i can't see you take good luck with nicole lewis and i was like no i like their video video up at a little video clip of it has been kind of circulating around on twitter today and it's just it's so embarrassing 'cause i'm like i didn't pick her i don't want her now go to call you got this you're by doesn't matter if it's victory nonetheless if ends up coming in for the call okay but we'll talk walk through all the scenarios for the game a little bit but let's just talk through what was going on in the episode clear we started with everything going on with tommy he was feeling sorry for himself and he ends up saying that okay i am going to end up coming clean to macbeth to jackson accident holly and he ends up telling the backstory of him in christie that they knew each other yeah so i love the way they set this up on the show because i feel like it was pretty much the exact same thing we were seeing on the feeds on saturday and it's one of those situations where they're just just talking so much smack about christie his face and he's just sitting there and taking it and taking it and then you just got i'd i just need to get defensive now and just kind of also blamed christie by association just look hey i knew her coming in at the play the cards i was dealt it's not not my fault she kinda lost herself like this is just this is why this happened and i loved it it reminds me of a situation on a movie where you know there's a group of the people and their talking a lot of smack about this one of the personnel burden comes as well i've been dating them secretly for three months so what do you have to say about that now nice well well if you think what you guys had to say is bad you should hear what my aunt had to say about her because i'm i'm sure yeah i'm sure my aunt was even she was even go after worse drag her so yeah sure the aunt has some breakup jersey i mean you never wanna go to hard into with the break-up stories because you don't have to break up is gonna take but here in in this instance since i don't know if tommy in christie you're gonna get back together after the season is over melissa yeah and i mean the way that this was put on the show did not make holly look great it made her look pretty bad and pretty mean and she's like i mean i sound download the mean girl right now and like no one says anything like no one says no you're not being it was just like tom he's kind of like it's okay i understand but it just did did not look good for holly i feel like today's at it wasn't great for her i mean this whole time she was kind of able to remove herself from this like bullying mentality or whatever whatever like this mean girl mentality and because she was always able to say like well i didn't have any part of it and it was it was in my heart and like i just felt like i had to go along with it for the game the christie's out of the house this is a game at all it's just like the smack jog somebody this is a great point about holly and i really feel like we've all been going back and forth of what's going to be the best move for nicole and forklift going into thursday and i have to say i think i feel more adamant than ever especially when we're talking about tommy versus holly holly has started to become so unimpressive puja off i almost i feel like i don't even see a scenario where holly ken win why would cliff and nicole wants to get rid of her yet yeah it's talking to parallel to nicole going from poppy not winning anything to now being the front runner is that holly coming into the week was kind of everyone's like like chalk okay if she makes it there she's got everyone beat she might have to work a little bit against jackson but she's got this going where why are they being picked off right now why holly being looked at right right now it just comes down to the fact that holly and mickey are jackson as we call them or a pair dr jackson yeah yeah that was so great by the way i didn't think of it we'll do all the comics and a little bit just basically basically comes down to the fact that they got rid of a pair it was a three way standoff of three pairs and now this is another pair and now there's an opportunity in front of them to maybe take take that one down we've all talked about at length of how impressive jackson's run has been since the blow up of forty four and here we are now and he could run on it to the end and this is something they see as handicapping jackson it boils under that yeah have you weighed in on on what you think cliff and nicole should do know because i got on the update the day before all this went down so my viewpoint from the get-go was it's a two out of four with the pair of nicole and cliff and then you've got a singular tommy a singular mickey if you're why don't you mickey out of nowhere jackson accepted yeah it's happened finally watermelon seed planted in your head i wish it was seedless those are better however yes so if you take holly out here these to see each other as biggest threat to win at the end they fully believe it at least that's how i'm taking it so my belief was coming down if they get to the final four these two are going to go after each other they're going to want to target each other even though cliff and nicole are sitting there as a pair why because even if we've just seen nicole when two competitions out of the last four in the last six days that's impressive we've seen cliff come out of nowhere when competitions when no one bought it was possible he's had his moments but jackson's run is unparalleled his competition wins have been ridiculously insane outside of here he's pretty much want everything that he's been really good on the flipside tommy has not not been a slouch in these cops he's coming second in a lot of even this one right now would-be comics so they go even if they win their have to look at taking each other out so that's where i stand is holly going out is better and i'm not gonna lie i wasn't one hundred percent in because everyone has said this is one of those ones where there's no rude winning pick either works i think as the days have gone on here and just the game we've seen just the conversations we've seen it's getting more and more clear that holly going is the move here okay melissa i'm much more in the tommy should go camp because i think that tommy i can see him winning competitions here down the stretch and could tell me this is crazy could you see tommy winning the final goal three h. o. h. and potentially taking jackson to the final two is that crazy to imagine that i think that it's possible however i mean like i don't know i don't think it's crazy but i think that the odds are he wouldn't because first of all well if he does that i mean he already knows that holly would vote for jackson so that automatic probably receive oh automatic jackson votes and then that would cancel out his chris evokes his christie does like the one like yes christie is gonna vote for me so then renders christie vote kind of move and then you know i i just think that he i don't think he would take jackson just because i think that he jackson are automatically has some votes associated with him uh-huh whereas nicole and cliff it's up in the air we don't know who's gonna vote for nicole and clip tommy as the argument first of all against clip that like i've been working this whole time i was in these all these alliances blah blah blah and i'm the last man standing from the alliance nicole and clifton do anything the whole game yeah sure they like you know they could say that obviously i disagree i think cliff i've

Gun control laws signed by N.J. Governor Phil Murphy

"I know the pain of losing a child again violence and that anyone in this room anyone in this country should ever be faced with that pain for every single day that we fall off into not taking action mothers and fathers August across this country will live to the same nightmare that I did that was congresswoman Lucy Macbeth of Georgia yesterday before the the House Judiciary Committee voted to advance three bills designed to counter the gun violence epidemic in this country including one that would allow authorities to take guns away from dangerous people known as a Red Flag Law. It's the latest gun safety push from the Democrat controlled House which voted earlier this year to require background checks on almost all gun sales something supported by the overwhelming majority of Americans but Senate Republicans have refused to take up any gun safety legislation with Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell insisting that he needs to know what Donald Trump would sign before he brings a bill to the floor which is unusual because the Senate is part of the Congress which is a CO equal branch of government but it's not actually necessary for them to know what the president will sign before voting on legislation today. Donald Trump said he was working with the Senate lawmakers on gun safety measures that will be quote quote acceptable to everybody another things that seems unattainable but he appears unlikely to support even moderate gun safety measures despite a recent spate of mass shootings just last month he reportedly assured the NRA that universal background checks are off the table with Republicans continued to struck gun safety measures at the federal level level. Some states are stepping up in New Jersey this week. Governor Phil Murphy signed an Executive Order mandating that his state not do business with gun manufacturers and dealers that do not adopt opt more stringent gun safety policies joining me now to tell me more about this New Jersey Democratic Governor Phil Murphy good to see you. Thank you for being with us. Thank you for having me Ali. We have seen across this country over the last few years a gun safety advocates point this out all the time that while the focus seems to be on the failure of Congress to pass meaningful legislation on gun since nineteen ninety-four in fact there has been meaningful legislation passed in states across the country including things like red flag flag laws which your state has and they argue that in fact a lot of progress is being made on that front alley quite appropriate. You have a discussion on public safety on this solemn day so so God rest the souls of all. We lost eighteen years ago. Yes there's been progress at the state level because because we frankly have no choice. There's inaction in Washington. I hope the president has seen the light in senator McConnell. I'll believe that when I see it but we have from day one in our administration taken a whole series of actions executive orders legislative action forming a coalition with other like-minded states called states for gun safety and yesterday as you pointed out an executive order that would require gun vendors financial institutions Russians that finance the those vendors as well as insurance companies to adhere to a set of principles that we think are consistent with the values associated with a smart mark gun safety state and we'll keep at it because at the end of the day we all need we all know that we need Congress to act but in the absence of that we can't stop it. We'll continue continue to stay at governor. We have a second amendment in this country. It is the law of the land regardless of whether people like it or not or think that rulings about it have made sense. It is what it is. How does does your new executive order. Stand up to that. When you say that these vendors these companies financial insurance companies live up to a set of standards that you you think are acceptable. How do you do that while standing up to a potential court challenge so we entered this the executive order and the execution of it in a spirit of goodwill so we're hoping to find common ground with the vendors and that's that's guns Samya mission other equipment with sped over the recent period of time about seventy million dollars. We have right now. Six vendors the deal with the state a again we enter that with a spirit of goodwill financial institutions. We spent a lot more in fees. I think we spent about a billion dollars in fees with financial institutions and lastly on the insurance carrier side. It's unclear yet what the exact magnitude is but none of what we're doing in in any way the challenges the Second Amendment this is asking vendors to to adhere to a set of principles that they respect universal universal background checks that they won't sell to Straw purchasers that they'll take training and communication seriously and likewise the financial institutions will choose in their dealings to finance only the vendors whether they be retailer manufacturers also would here to those principles. I I don't think any of that goes near the Second Amendment and I think we can make that case quite clearly. I would hope that we could continue to do so not just a New Jersey but we could. We could do that across sore country governor. I WanNa ask you really quickly. The President says he's GonNa come up with something everybody'll be happy with. There's no gun law that everybody's going to be happy with but there's common ground in those red flag laws across this country are you're an example of common ground where gun safety advocates have worked with with got advocates to come up with something that does not skirt the rule of law and due process in saying that there are people who are dangerous who maybe shouldn't have guns but that'll be adjudicated yeah red flag laws are a good example sample of steps that are broadly if not overwhelmingly supported by Americans of all political stripes universal background checks so I think clocks in at ninety percent. It's completely shameful. Congress and this administration have acted already on those steps hopeful so that they will but in the meantime I'll hope for the best it will prepare for the worst and keep here in New Jersey governor. Thanks for joining tonight. We appreciate a Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey

"There are any number of ways that this interaction might have gone. But there was only one way could have ended once a gun entered the equation. In Florida over one million people carry concealed weapons. Additionally, ten to fifteen thousand more Floridians are approved to carry guns and public every month faster than any state in the nation. Nationally, Florida has some of the loosest or medium requirements automobile glove boxes are becoming modern day gun boxes. In his glove box. Michael, Don, cut the nine millimeter semiautomatic gun along with two loaded magazines. Once he hit unloaded his gun at my son and his teenage friends immediately went back to his hotel ordered a pizza and slept. Douglas, Lucy MacBeth testifying in a twenty seventeen Senate hearing against the standard ground laws. She wanted Georgia's sixth congressional district that you may have heard of Lucy MacBeth, she was inspired to run for office after losing her son, Jordan Davis gun violence, her seventeen year old son was murdered in Florida following an argument over loud music, and every since then Lucy MacBeth has been there for the fight. You know, here's another thing that you may not know about Lucy MacBeth, she survived breast cancer twice. You know? The most heartbreaking thing about Lucy MacBeth story is that her son Jordan Davis wasn't supposed to be in Florida. He was there while MacBeth was recovering from a second belt of breast cancer. An although both Florida and Georgia have stand your ground laws. This happening in Florida is so sadly fitting given Florida's history was standard ground laws with Trayvon Martin's case, of course, there have been other high profile cases, the man. Who killed Lucy? Macbeth's son actually cited the standard ground law in his defense and Lucy MacBeth, of course, has been really outspoken about senior ground laws and gun control. Generally. I read an interview between Lucy MacBeth and Tana has he coats in the Atlantic where she said, you know, I still love mine country is the only country we have. And I still believe there are people who believe in Justice, and fairness I still believe that there are people who don't make judgments about people based on the color of their skin the thing that I think is so important about loosen bets. Win is the fact that you know, week over week were stunned at the new levels of gun violence in this country. And it's something that's plagued us loosen about campaigned against the Sandra ground laws, and she was also the national spokesperson for moms demand action for Gunson's. And in the state of Florida where her son was killed at least twenty six children and teens were killed in cases related to stand your ground laws between two thousand five hundred thousand twelve there are twenty five states that still have senior laws. Including Georgia where Lucy MacBeth is from him where she won her congressional seat in Florida. But it won't think about this timeline. It's time line leading up to loosen Macbeth's candidacy, so her son Jordan Davis was shot and killed in November of two thousand twelve sandy hook happened in December of the same year.

And I absolutely love this one everybody remember the special election last year in Georgia to replace the totally corrupt Tom Price. Trump named as the secretary of health and human services that feature democratic candidate Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel. This is the seat that used to be Newt Gingrich's seat. All of us Democrats got behind him. And this was going to be the election. The Democrats crack the red Georgia wall something they hadn't done since Jimmy Carter era and then Ossoff lost by six points. Fifty three to forty seven percent. But here's the kicker in defeat Democrats Queen dated an infrastructure in that district. They found volunteers they identified voters, and they built upon that infrastructure this election cycle on Tuesday, Karen Handel. The Republicans opponent was one Lucy MacBeth a breast cancer survivor. Also, an African American woman who lost her seventeen year old son to gun violence in two thousand twelve in honor of her son, Lucy became a gun safety activists after the parkland shooting in Florida, She decided to run for office leading into Tuesday's election. Polls showed MacBeth with a slight lead of maybe one two percent. Points on Tuesday night. However that race was called once again for Republican Karen Handel who declared victory, however on Wednesday after all the absentee and provisional ballots were counted Republican Karen Handel conceded the race and very graciously. I might add to Lucy MacBeth make that congresswoman Lucy MacBeth that that would be democratic congresswoman Lucy MacBeth, just a heart. Romney story. Six democratic women were elected to governorships a new record native Americans. Now have not one but two voices in their government. As the first two native American women, both them, of course, were elected to congress. Deb, Holland in New Mexico and cherise Davis in white forward. Kansas really, the home of the westboro Baptist church home. Of Sam Brownback, and Chris Kodak Kansas David's also becomes the first openly, lesbian congresswoman from canvas. And listen to what she mentioned in the post-election interview. I'm just really happy to see that Kansas is in the news for positive change making because we're often unfortunately known for folks like Sam Brownback can and Chris Bach. And I just have always wanted to make sure that people knew that Kansas is about way more than that. And this has been an amazing opportunity for.

Georgia sort of unique among states, they have a run off provision in governor's races in so of neither nor Abrahams. Get fifty percent on election day in November of Mets gets a few points keeps them both under fifty this goes to a runoff that run off would be held on December fourth. So that is the wildcard there. Also, the governor's race the intensity in it. The high interest in it we may be seeing a bit of a ripple effect in to congressional races. In Georgia, remember nationally, Democrats trying to pick up twenty three seats. Here's a blast from the past member about a year year and a half ago special election in Georgia's sixth district of suburbs. North of Atlanta, John. Was the democratic hated at the Democrats ported thirty million bucks fell short Karen Handel one that special election now, she's running for a full term. And look at this Opole out this week shows are only leading by four points. This is making Republicans nationally nervous just this week. They through more than a million dollars into this race at the last minute trying to keep he ahead in this race. Interestingly in this poll, you're seeing right here. Stacey Abrams democratic candidate for governor. Leading in this district by a point so could Abrahams actually ended up having an effect helping Lucy MacBeth the democratic heated here next door, the seventh district again suburbs. Just outside Atlanta. Traditionally Republican Trump though, did not do as well in this district as norm as Republicans normally do again poll this week showing the Republican incumbent they're only ahead by six head in this race. But it shows you in those suburbs. Democrats this is the kind of place if they get that extra burst of energy. This is one to keep an eye on potentially on Alexa. So it's

"The levels of the because let's just point out the yes eighteen year olds. MacBeth was written to please King James because he was Scottish and theoretically somewhat from the line of an, but somehow the reason that they're asking this question has has to relate to defect. The King. James was the one who translated the bible. They wouldn't. They would not. There is no point in in understanding art and literature for its own sake. Right? If you're a Polemis like this. Yeah, it only you use if you can find a way to connect Shakespeare to your fucking bible, you do that. And then I haven't read the fucking play, of course, not. And I think the thing is they need to take off a box that says arts and and like arts education. No about Shakespeare. You know what? Now's about King James nets name on my bible. I'm a cultured Mayan. Okay. So two more questions off on a four Wheeler. This out on we Lee. Can I just say that my favorite thing so far in this episode which has been delightful. The whole, the whole thing has been marks, oppression. That sounds like. Good sound effects, buddy. I mean, it's only in second gear there. So. Keeping with MacBeth. The main characters and MacBeth are a three weird sisters be Malcolm, Donald bane, see Shakespeare and the groundlings. Or d. MacBeth and Lady Macbeth. Wow, that's a tough one. Well, at least there is a right answer there, and the other ones are actually pertinent. Right? Zero ducks mentioned. We've improved a lot of to see a production of MacBeth with to drag. That's one of the ingredients that goes in the colder winter. Throw in Philadelphia, Fenny snake and two dry docks. This potion make so tasty milk. Uncle Dan, I included this last question for you or guy. When an actor speaks to himself alone on the stage to let the audience know what he is thinking. He obviously and feeling is a giving us a little Kwee be faking an faking insanity, see a poor actor or d about to be killed. I think a both. Correct. I mean, all of them literally one instance can be all those. Absolutely true. So There's, there's. you know, these are this is this like SAT test questions in the in the ace program. But the point is these are not. This is not religious folder. All that is being taught to kids after they get home from a public education Lou. This is this is this is the education, right? I mean, you read an SAT question right now they are. You know, blankets to blank, has blankets to blank. They're fucking hard, you know, and and but this is this is the same answer to that one. True. This is all clearly. And by the way, the people that wrote these fucking curriculum have doctors on the front of their names be shoved up their ass, but but it seems like this whole thing is based on a calculus by Christian parents that you see that there's no way to have both properly educated ready with life skills to work in the world and to engage with the world kids and Christian kids at the same time, right. This is a calculus that the only way that you can have good Christian kids is to intentionally tension Lii mutilate them and make them fucking stupid. Yeah. Yeah. May just deprive them of all useful. Actual knowledge. Yeah. And anything that could help them to process the world in any adult sort of way and make sure that that's how I did forget to mention that that a lot of these quote unquote schools are eligible for federally funded. Voucher some starting. I'm starting right now and just what a, what a cruel I'm going to Betsy DeVos is state where she from Mexican Michigan. I'm going there and I think the flag on her yacht is Barbados. Go to barbeque their flag on the on the Great Lakes on one of her yachts. So what a cruel, shitty, horrible inhibiting Pablo thing to do your guests. I can't. It's unconscionable. I got you depressed. I did it reet. Sweet. I'm a sad is too dry. Ducks. I need some tasty. All right, and a ride, and mister Louis. Soliloquy. All right. Well, perfect. I hate that. Let's let's let's start. We're going to start a school. We'll see later everybody. Well friends.

"The uh the male protagonist of macbeth than the shakespearean drama of it and with lady macbeth it kind of uh rearranges the the idea of lady macbeth who is this kind of this it was a fierce woman in the in the play and dumb puts it in as he can see in the in the article in 1865 rural england and she's in this kind of really messed up abusive marriage to an older man and she's been kind of this victim or you know every day for her whole marriage and that you finally snaps at doesn't that i have a leave it there i'll leave it there it is it is dark uh it goes into some places that uh might make you a little make swirl a little bit by really big so this one it's not like so i've seen lady macbeth cno utter this is that they they take you into the bedroom or something new well there i mean they take you throughout this whole marriage that saw really in a it's it's an a bad place as i said of it's abusive but it psalm this kind of turn its terror it's turning the roles on their head and having lady macbeth become this sort of vengeful character and something that's really interesting is that it was made on a very small budget for being a period piece now like i said this takes place in 1865 when it comes to period pieces usually spending a lot of money on costumes and the sat and everything like that they really um tried to get around all that and used what they had you know available to them to create the saturday and create the the scene of the movie and i think that's really the most interesting thing about it now i do unto acknowledge all the people well i can't there are too many.
